SDeveloper Cuts Densit




A; On E.F. Griffin Road


CHRISTMAS IS just 44 days away, so it's time Wednesday attaching red bows and. wrapping
to put up those decorations at least in Downtown greenery around the old-fashioned light poles on
Bartow. City worker Harvey Northrup was busy Main Street. (Staff photo by Peggy Kehoe)


By S. L. FRIBIE, IV
Publisher

One developer agreed to
reduce the density in his high
end subdivision to two homes per
acre, and another was put on
notice by Bartow city commis-
sioners that they would like to
see a lower density in his devel-
opment, too.
Both actions came in response
to objections from neighbors
about new subdivisions with
higher densities than the proper-
ty they adjoin.
In one case, the zoning board
recommended turning down the
applicant.
Atty. Tim Campbell, repre-
senting Lakeland builder Duane
McQuillen, presented a plan to
reduce from 58 to 48 the number
of lots to go in at 24.4-acre subdi-
vision on the west side of E.F.
Griffin Road. Campbell also
agreed to upgrade development
standards by two levels, from R-
1-B to R-1-2A.
Commissioners voted to pass
on first reading an ordinance
zoning the site R-1-2A, condi-
tioned on Campbell's promise
that the development will have
only 48 lots, fewer than R-1-2A
zoning would allow.
Even so, they asked the zoning
board to take a look at the project
at its meeting on Monday, Nov.
14.
The zoning board voted to dis-
approve the development with R-
1-B zoning, but it was submitted
by the city staff for commission
approval.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said that the city commission has
changed its previous policy of
taking a preliminary vote on
actions recommended by the zon-
ing board, contrary to a story in
Monday's Democrat.
Since June, the city's policy is


Sheriff Returns $9 Million


To County; Some Will Be Used


For Law Enforcement Purposes


Asserting that the money
belongs to the taxpayers not
to his office or the Polk County
commission Sheriff Grady
Judd presented a photo-op
mock-up of a check for
$9,027,417 to the commission
on Wednesday.
Commissioners agreed to
allocate 40 percent of the money
for law enforcement purposes.
"I'll return every penny that I
don't need," Judd told the com-
mission. "I will always look out
for the dollar."
He acknowledged that the
traditional philosophy in gov-
ernment is to spend the entire
budget, then ask for more the
next year.
"That's wrong," he said.
Some of the money repre-
sents funds received from
FEMA in reimbursement for the
Polk County sheriff's office
expenses incurred in hurricane
recovery efforts last year. Some
came from money saved when
there were vacancies in the
department, Judd said.
He warned that future
refunds to the commission are
not likely to be as large, but
said: "We'll continue to look for
savings."
One economy can be achieved
by urging judges to sentence
defendants to a year and a day,
which will require that they be
moved to: the state prison sys-
tem, and not kept in the county
jail, where the maximum sen-
tence is one year.
Judd asked that the commis-


sion allocate more than $1 mil-
lion for upgrading the criminal
justice computer system, up to
$1 million for "court house secu-
rity renovations," and $35,000
for support of the PCSO's avia-
tion unit.
Further upgrades to the com-
puter system will reduce the
amount of time spent posting
paper records and delivering
them from office to office, Judd
said.
Information entered into the
system by computer can be
shared by all agencies, without
further data entry by another
office, he said.
He said he did not want to
disclose the details of security
improvements at the court
house, but emphasized that
they will be designed to protect
the safety of everyone who
works or does business in the
court house, not just the judges.
Judd said he is planning to
move out of the Hall of Justice
building now the sheriff's
operations center to make it
available for expansion of the
court system.
County Mgr. Mike Herr said
the county's capital improve-
ments budget has $2.1 million
for security upgrades at the
existing court house. That
money does not include the cost
of renovating the Hall of
Justice, he said.
Commissioner Bob English
asked Judd to discuss the use of'
his department's aircraft.
Judd said on the previous


night, a helicopter patrol had
spotted five people stealing
building materials.
One helicopter unit can
observe more than 50 squad car
deputies, he said.
"We can light up a hostile
scene and shake up the bad
guys and protect our deputies,"
he added.
The department has four
helicopters, all purchased either
with confiscated drug money or
from the federal government
surplus stock at a price of $500.
The oldest unit in the fleet
was purchased by Sheriff
Monroe Brannen in 1971, he


said.
Commissioner Sam Johnson
moved that the commission
commit up to $1 million of the
refund for court house security,
$2.6 million for computer
upgrade and a start on a public
safety center, and $35,000 for
the PSCO aviation unit. His
motion passed by unanimous
vote.
Commission Chm. Jack
Myers suggested that part of
the money be spent on a 3-1-1
information system, designed to
handle non-emergency calls
that sometimes are called in to
the 9-1-1 emergency number.


to forward all requested zoning
actions for adoption by the city
commission, regardless of the
zoning board's recommendation,
he said. The text of the ordinance
reflects whether the zoning
board's recommendation was pos-
itive or negative.
Campbell said that the lots
around the perimeter of the
gated subdivision would be 120
feet by 150 feet, making them
closer in size to the mostly one-
acre lots adjoining McQuillen's
development.

Code Allows Six Units
He reminded the commission
that the city's land development
regulations allow up to six units
per acre on land classified "low
density residential."
He said McQuillen's homes
would sell for $300,000 to
$400,000, and would produce
more tax revenue than the cost of
public services to the develop-
ment.
Asked why he wanted a gated
community, McQuillen told com-
missioners that the purpose of
the gate is to reduce traffic in the
subdivision. There will not be a
fence around the entire develop-
ment, he added.
Responding to expressions of
concern about traffic on E.F.
Griffin Road, Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers said the county
"is actively looking at widening"
the road. He said it will be four to
five years before the high-density
subdivisions on E.F. Griffin Road
are built out.
Commissioner Brian Hinton


Should public comment be
accepted when a city ordinance is
voted on for the first time, or only
when it comes up for final action?
Bartow city commissioners
differ on that question.
A public hearing is required on
second (final) reading of every
ordinance, but not on first read-
ing. Commission policy on allow-
ing public input on first reading
has varied from year to year,
sometimes from meeting to meet-
ing.
Commissioner Andy Laurent
suggested that the commission
allow public comment when an
ordinance is considered on first


said the county's highway plan-
ning "hasn't worked in northeast
Polk County or on County Road
540-A."
"Are we responsible for north-
east Polk County?" Wiegers
responded.
Hinton asked Wiegers if the
zoning board would have recom-
mended approval if McQuillen
had requested R-1-2A zoning in
the first place.
"I don't believe so," Wiegers
replied.
Hinton said he would like the
zoning board to take a look at the
R-1-2A zoning proposal at its
Nov. 14 meeting.
Wiegers said that City Atty.
George Dunlap should attend the
zoning board meeting.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to pass the zoning ordi-
nance on first reading, noting
that they will consider it on final
reading on Nov. 21. A public hear-
ing will be held at that meeting.

Road Said Inadequate
While not addressing
McQuillen's development specifi-
cally, T. Franklin Black, who
lives on E.F. Griffin Road, said
that traffic conditions on that
road are now Level of Service C,
not Level of Service A, as the
city's staff analysis has said. He
cited traffic counts to support his
position.
He said the situation will be
made worse in 2007 when the
county closes Finger Lane, the
short road that connects E.F
Griffin Road with County Road
540-A.


reading as well as second read-
ing.
Refusing to allow the public to
be heard the first time the com-
mission votes on an ordinance
"makes it look like it's a done
deal," he said.
"I get a little frustrated when
we tell people they can't speak at
first reading," Commissioner
Brian Hinton said, supporting
Laurent's suggestion.
Mayor Leo Longworth said the
city should not conduct public
hearings on both readings on an
ordinance, but that the commis-
sion could consider allowing com-
ment on first reading on a case-


He predicted that with the
development presently planned,
both E.F. Griffin Road and Lyle
Parkway will fail.
He said there has been no
coordination by the city with the
county transportation planning
staff.
He recommended that devel-
opment on E.F. Griffin Road be
halted until the road is widened.
Sam Thomas, another E.F.
Griffin Road resident, commend-
ed the city commission and the
zoning board for "genuinely try-
ing to do the right thing with zon-
ing."
He said the average housing
density in the core of the city is
1.5 units per acr6, and the densi-
ty on Clubhouse Road off County
Road 540-A is two to three units
per acre.
DeLegge said that lots in
Azalea Park are 60 feet wide,
adding: "Not everything is like
you pictured."

Winding River Cove
After lengthy discussion, com-
missioners voted unanimously to
pass on first reading an ordi-
nance to assign R-1-B zoning to a
16.7-acre subdivision on Gandy
Road. That is the city's second
highest single-family residential
density.
The property is located
between Peace River Estates
Units 1 and 2, and across the
street from much lower density
homes.
The development, Winding

by-case basis.
Hinton also suggested that the
city send notices to neighbors liv-
ing more than 150 feet from prop-
erty considered for rezoning.
City Atty. George Dunlap said
that might increase public
response when zoning proposals
first come before the zoning
board.
"I think 150 feet is a little bit
ridiculous," he added.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said he sometimes sends notices
beyond the required 150 feet. He
also said he sometimes posts
signs on the property, "but often
the signs disappear."

The three-day Juneteenth
Celebration. held each June


along Bartow's Polk Street, com-
memorates African American
freedom and emphasizes educa-
tion and achievement through a
series of daily events.
The Juneteenth community
event commemorates the ending
of slavery and the observance of
June 19' as the African American
Emancipation Day.
Juneteenth is the oldest
known celebration commemorat-
ing the ending of slavery in the
United States. The commemora-
tion dates back to June 19, 1865
when Union soldiers, led by Ma-
jor General Gordon Granger,
landed at Galveston, Texas, with
news that the war had ended
and the enslaved were now free.
This was two and a half years
after President Lincoln's Eman-
cipation Proclamation, .which
had become official Jan. 1, 1863.


For those who just can't wait
for the Christmas season, the
wait is over. Operation Christ-
mas Child, a ministry of Samari-
tan's Purse, is in full swing all
over the world. Locally, The Polk
County Democrat and The Fort
Meade Leader are helping their
readers participate in this minis-
try.
Operation Christmas Child
delivers shoe boxes filled with
gifts for children such as toys,
personal items and school sup-
plies to millions of children all
over the world each year. Last
year, more than six million chil-
dren experienced the joy of
Christmas with the help of Op-
eration Christmas Child. Some
of these children had never re-
ceived a Christmas gift before
Operation Christmas Child.
Shoe boxes are filled by thou-
sands of individuals, churches,
businesses and organizations
each year. Filling a shoe box is
easy and each one is unique. In-
structions for filling a shoe box
include:
Find a empty shoe box. It
can be cardboard or plastic. The
shoe box can be wrapped, lid
separately, or left unwrapped.
Determine if the box will be
for a boy or a girl, and choose an
age category (2-4, 5-9, or 10-14).
Attach a label to the outside of
the box denoting the sex and age
of the child to receive the box.
Labels are available at www.sa-
maritanspurse.org by clicking
the "Operation Christmas Child"
link and then the "How to Pack a
Shoe Box" link. Handmade la-
bels can be attached to the box
as well.
Suggested items include
small toys such as cars, dolls,
balls, stuffed animals, kazoos,
harmonicas, yo-yos, toys that
light up or make noise (with ex-
tra batteries), etc.; school sup-
plies such as pens, pencils and
sharpeners, crayons, markers,
stamps, coloring books, writing
pads, solar calculators, etc.; hy-
giene items such as bar soap,
toothbrush/toothpaste, wash
clothes, brush/comb, etc.; and
other items such as hard candy,

Shoe boxes are flown across
seas on jets and airplanes then
delivered by whatever means
possible to children. This year's
goal is to deliver seven million

Yes, There Is a Market


For Executive Homes


Is there a market in Bartow for homes
built at a density of two houses per acre?
Apparently there is, in the opinion of at
least one successful developer.
And he believes that market exists in the
fastest growing area of high-density hous-
ing in Bartow: E.F. Griffin Road.
It took encouragement from Bartow's
zoning board and city commission, but
Lakeland builder Duane McQuillen agreed
Monday night to reduce the density on his
proposed E.F. Griffin Road subdivision
from 58 homes to 48 homes on 24.4 acres.
Tim Campbell, attorney for McQuillen,
conveyed the offer to the city, making it
clear that he was offering a binding com-
mitment, not just an idea.
Commissioners took him up on it.
Correctly, we believe. *
McQuillen's proposed development will
be built to the city's R-1-2A standard, one
of four zoning categories created many
years ago to encourage high end develop-
ments. The "super zones" of R-1-2A, R-1-
3A, R-1-4A, and R-1-5A remained only a
concept in the city's development code for
a number of years. But the idea finally
caught on, and builders have found a
ready market for such homes.
McQuillen's subdivision will not be one
of homes on half-acre lots; in the often con-
fusing terminology of developers and
planners, it's a matter of "gross density"
versus "net density."
In McQuillen's development, roads,
retention areas, and any other public lands
will come out of the 24.4 acres, sharing
that space with the 48 homes.
Even Bartow's Rural Estate 2 zoning -
two homes per acre includes room for
roads within that acre.
Long-time residents of E.F..Griffin Road,
many of whom live on building lots of one
acre or more, would like to see that low
density maintained throughout the area.


That's not going to happen.
On the other hand, developers intent on
building nothing but the highest possible
density homes six units per acre is what
Bartow' "low density residential" land use
allows, though city officials say it isn't
actually possible to achieve that density -
have carried the day in most develop-
ments already on the drawing board.
"Nobody has brought anything in here
different from any other developers,"
Commissioner Andy Laurent complained
Monday night. "Nobody wants to do it
because it's different and it's hard."
McQuillen's proposal is an exception.
People who want to see Bartow's hous-
ing stock offer a variety of choices, from
high density "starter homes" to high end,
low density developments, are not elitists.
Historically, a dearth of "executive
homes" in Bartow has made it difficult to
attract top management of local business-
es. They choose to live in Lakeland, where
such homes are available, and commute to
Bartow.
If the zoning board and city commission
maintain their resolve to insist on an vari-
ety of housing, that can change.
That, too, is an important factor in chart-
ing Bartow's growth.

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV


10 Years and Still Enjoying It


Our little newspaper operation
marked an anniversary this
week.
If The Polk County Democrat
is the flagship of our tiny fleet,
Polk County Times is the tugboat.
It is published once a month, nor-
mally with 12 to 16 tabloid pages.
This month, we marked 10
years of publishing Polk County
Times. Our first issue was pub-
lished in November 1995.
Mary and I were returning
from a trip to Lakeland one after-
noon when I turned to her and
said: "I'm going to start a new
newspaper."
She looked at me the way that
one spouse looks at another after
three decades of marriage. Her
silent message was clear: Yeah,
sure you are; tell me about it.
Thus encouraged, I continued:
"It will be called Polk County
Times. It will be a trade publica-
tion for employees of county gov-
ernment, including the school
system. It will be the Polk County
equivalent to Army Times, Navy
Times, Air Force Times, and
Federal Times."
Her expression didn't change.
The idea had occurred to me a
few days earlier at an economic
development committee meeting.
A couple of Bartow merchants


said they wished they could
attract customers from those
thousands of government
employees who work in Bartow
but live in other communities. I
had heard the same sentiment
many times.
But this time, a little light bulb
lit up over my head, cartoon-
style, indicating the arrival of an
idea.
"Isn't this the business you're
supposed to be in?" I asked
myself. "Aren't you supposed to
put businesses in contact with-
their customers and potential
customers?"
Given that The Democrat is the
county seat newspaper, we pub-
lish far more county government
news than any other community
newspaper in the county. For us,
county government news is local
news.
It made sense to me that we
could repackage the most inter-
esting and important stories in a
monthly trade publication for
Bartow's largest industry: county
government.
It didn't make sense to any-
body else on the staff, but some of
them were kind enough not to
say so until after the first few
issues were out. Others didn't
wait that long.


The first step was to check
with the school superintendent
and the county manager to see if
(1) they felt there was a need, or
at least a market, for such a prod-
uct, and if (2) they would distrib-
ute it to their employees. And oh
yes, if (3) they would advertise in
it, taking advantage of this new
vehicle to reach their employees.
Happily, the answer to all
three questions was in the affir-
mative. John Stewart, who was
Polk County's school superinten-
dent, was particularly enthusias-
tic about the possibilities. The
school board published an
administrative bulletin, he said,
but he harbored no illusions
about how widely-read it was.
The county commission had no
employee bulletin.
The next step was to see if
there was enough advertiser sup-
port to make the project financial-
ly feasible. .
I am not the world's worst ad
salesman; I am not that good.
But I called on 18 potential
advertisers and sold 19 accounts,
16 of them on one-year contracts.
How 19 sales in 18 calls? One
business woman said her hus-
band's business would advertise
in it, too.
Four of our advertisers have


been in all 120 issues of our first
10 years, and are in this month's
121st edition: Bartow Christian
Books and Gifts, Polk County
School Board, Bartow Jewelry
and Pawn, and K-T Pharmacy.
The Polk County commission
missed only one of the first 120
issues.
Offices under the county com-
mission, and the five constitu-
tional officers, give us informa-
tion on how many copies to send
to each office.
At the start of each school year,
we send a questionnaire to
schools asking if we are sending
enough copies. Every year, we
get requests for additional copies.
Our distribution now exceeds
10,000 copies.
After our third issue, our head
pressman told me that he, like
most of the staff, never thought
the idea would fly. He admitted
that Polk County Times was a
success.
"You're really enjoying it,
aren't you?" he said.
"Sure am," I replied.
Still am.
I've had my share of ideas that
didn't fly; happily, this wasn't
one of them.

Almost as soon as the Kissim-
mee River was channelized as a
flood relief measure, the public
began complaining.
Today, most of the 53-mile ca-
nal that took the place of the
103-mile meandering river is be-
ing filled in, and the river is re-
suming is former path.
Bridgett Tolley of the South
Florida Water Marnagement Dis-
trict outlined the history of the
project to the Bartow Rotary
Club.
The river connects Lake Kis-
simmee and Lake Okeechobee.
After killer hurricanes in
1926 and 1928, the Hoover Dike,
a 40-foot high earthen dike, was
built, completely enclosing Lake
Okeechobee.
More canals and levees were
built in the 1940s in response to
more hurricanes.
In the 1950s, channelization
of the Kissimmee River was
authorized. Construction began
in 1962 and was completed in
1971. The canal, with a series of
flood control structures, was 300
feet wide and 30 feet deep.
The canal stopped the steady
southern flow of the water, re-
sulting in death of fish and the
disappearance of wading birds

that had been a part of the me-
andering river.
After years of public protests,
the Army Corps of Engineers
authorized restoration of most of
the river in 1992. Work began in
1994, when bulldozers began
pushing banks of soil into the ca-
nal, forcing the river back to its
original path.
Filling of the first seven miles
of the canal created 15 miles of
meandering river in the first
phase of the restoration, the
speaker said.
The balance of the project will
be carried out in three more
phases, and several of the flood
control structures will be re-
moved. Navigation of parts of
the river will be interrupted for
18 months.
While most of the river will be
returned to its previous state,
the canal will be retained at its
northern and southern ends to
protect those areas from flood-
ing, Ms. Tolley said.

Rotary President Chuck Bent-
ley announced that members of
the club have contributed $1,975
to the Bartow Rotary Club Foun-
dation for hurricane relief.

We have been busy delivering
the 2006 Birthday Calendars
which arrived on Oct. 31. The

delivering Easter Baskets to the
"90 Year Club" members, chil-
dren's Maypole Dance, the Fort

derful memory of the pictures of
so many friends. The cost is $6.
If you would like to buy one, call'
me, Leta Wright, 285-9182, or

Part of the volunteers met
last Tuesday noon at the Broad-
way Cafe to have lunch and cele-
brate the October birthdays of
Martha Hancock and Caroline
Loadholtes. It's always a fun
time every month when we cele-
brate a volunteer's birthday,
sing Happy Birthday, and watch
them blow out their candles.
Those attending were
Jeanette Albritton, Marian
Clyatt, Janet Hancock, Martha
Hancock, Velma Howell, Peggy,
Langston, Caroline Loadholtes,


Eunice Manley, Helen Palmer,
Violet Sheffield, Betty Speer,

tion is finished and we need a lot
of help and ideas to put our Mu-
seum back in order.
The yearly dues are: Corpora-
tion, $250; Business, $50; Fam-
ily, $25; Single, $15; Student, $1.
You can mail to the Historical

mas Parade, Dec. 5, along with
the City Commissioners. The pa-
rade ends at the Museum and
Santa Claus will be seated on his
throne in the Bandstand to talk
to the children after the parade.
Do bring your children and cam-
eras to take their picture with
Santa.
We pre so proud of the accom-
plishments that our Fort Meade
High School graduate has made
at the University of Florida on
the Gator football team. Jemalle

time pass that won the game
against Vanderbilt. This is his
senior year and we say to Je-

River Cove, will .have 41 homes
on 16.7 acres if the developer,
Jim Saccarella of Tampa, wins
approval on final reading on Nov.
21.
Neighbors have pressed for 32
or 33 homes in the development,
a density of about two homes per
acre.
"I want to work together with
the neighborhood," Saccarella
said, but told the commission
that half-acre lots in that area
would not be marketable.
He said he plans homes of at
least 1,650 square feet that
would sell for $200,000 or more.
He said the homes would be at
least as valuable as the homes in
Peace River Estates. He offered
to impose the same deed restric-
tions as Peace River Estates.

Wants It 'Affordable'
"I'm trying to make it afford-
able," he said of his development.
Bill Fritze, Saccarella's plan-
ner, told the commission: "My
first analysis said we should be
doing 50 lots out there." Most of
the lots are larger than the R-1-B
minimums, he said, measuring
100 feet by 120 feet. R-1-B zoning
allows lots 90 feet wide.
The health department limits
density to three units per acre
because the homes will be served
by septic tanks, he said.
Kay Blocker, .who lives on six
acres of land on the west side of


Sierra Club

Plans Hike

Polk Group of Sierra Club will
sponsor a hike of Gator Creek
Reserve on Saturday, Nov. 12, at
8:30 a.m.
The public is invited to join
the hike, which Will sallow par-
ticipants to become familiar with
one of the '.lands acquired
through Polk's Environmental
Lands Program.
This will be a leisurely stroll
through the Reserve, with a
chance to see wildlife, pine flat-
woods and cypress domes.
The Reserve is in the north
Lakeland area just off US Hwy.
98
Participants' should"'medt in
the parking lot and bring water;
binoculars, bug spray and hat.
Call leader Chuck Geneangel
at 326-5748 for more informa-
tion.


Saccarella's development, told
the commission: "Gandy Road is
a substandard road," and that
cars have to pull off the pave-
ment to allow school buses to
pass.
The county has no plans to
widen it for the next 10 years,
she added.
She said neighbors had antici-
pated that Winding River Cove
would be developed with half-
acre lots.
Fritze replied that Bartow's
comprehensive plan allows six
homes per acres in "low density
residential" areas.
"We're solution oriented," he
told the commission,
"I can live with R-1-A; we can
go to R-1-2A."

Bartow Needs Growth
"Bartow has got to grow,"
Mayor Leo Longworth said. "We
don't have to approve cookie cut-
ter homes like County Road 540-
A. This is more compatible than
E.F. Griffin Road."
Without residential growth,
Bartow will not be able to attract
more major retailers like.Lowe's,
he said.
"Developers aren't going to
buy into one unit per acre.
"The way to maximize our ser-
vices is density."
Commissioner Andy Laurent
said: "If the market is there, the
developers will come." The city's
goal, he said, should be "quality


of life for everybody."
Laurent asked Wiegers why R-
1-B zoning was proposed for the
development.
"That's what he applied for,"
Wiegers said.
"Nobody has brought anything
in here different from any other
developers," Laurent said.
"Nobody wants to do it
because it's different and it's
hard."
He suggested that Saccarella
design larger lots around the
edge of the development and
smaller lots in the middle. The
city might waive its require-
ments for sidewalks as an incen-
tive for larger lots, he said.
Fritze told the commission
that his proposed density of 2.4
-units per acre "is very important
to us, but it's not the bottom line.
We'll work with you for a solu-
tion."
Longworth suggested that the
commission delay action on
Saccarella's development and ask
him to come back with a site plan
with fewer than 41 lots.
Laurent and Hinton both said
they would vote to approve the R-
1-B zoning to move the plan for-
ward, butthat they wanted a less
dense site plan submitted when
the ordinance comes back for
final approval on Nov. 21.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve the R-1-B zon-
ing, subject to reconsideration at
their next meeting.

County FFA Federation on the
annual bus trip to the National
FFA Convention held in Louis-
ville, Kentucky, Oct. 26-30.
Sixty Polk County FFA mem-
bers and advisors converged onto
__ the chartered bus Sunday morn-
ing, Oct. 23 in Lakeland.
On the way to Louisville the
group took many educational
side trips which included a tour
of Lake City Community Colle-
ge's turf grass management and
maintenance Program, an excur-
sion train ride from Cordele to
Plains, Ga., and a guided tour of
the' Civil War Confederate


Prison Camp in Andersonville,
Ga.
The Polk County delegation
arrived in Louisville Wednesday
night in time for the evening ses-
sion attended by approximately
20,000 energetic FFA members
from across the United States,
Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands.
In addition to attending the
convention, Fort Meade FFA
members also had the opportu-
nity to tour Church Hill Downs,
home of the Kentucky Derby, a
glass works factory, the Louis-
ville Slugger Factory and Mu-
seum and set their eyes upon the
Ohio River during their stay in
Louisville.
"It was great to see the
Smokey Mountains, on the way
up for the first time and walk
around the streets of a big city
like Louisville. It is refreshing to


see a little bit of the world and
meet new people outside of Fort
Meade," said Sean Brownlee,
Fort Meade Senior FFA student
advisor.
After the three days in Louis-
ville, all boarded the chartered
bus Saturday afternoon for the
long trip back to Lakeland.
"The trip home is always a
challenge as we drive straight
from Louisville to Lakeland,"
said Fort Meade Sr. FFA Advisor
Nora McLeod, "We had a great
group of members which re-
ceived numerous compliments
from hotel managers and other
hotel guests concerning how well
they all conducted themselves.
It was a great trip."
.Next year the National FFA
convention will move 'to Indian-
apolis.

Champion BHS Softball

Offers New Stadium Seats


By MARK KING
After four straight FHSAA
softball state championships,
what do the BHS Lady Jackets
do to increase the excitement for
the season starting up in just a
couple of months?
How about new, luxury, sta-
dium-style seating for starters?
That's right!
For the truly discriminating
softball fan, the Lady Jackets
will be offering 16 of the new
seats, which feature chair backs
and arm rests, along the first
base side of the field. Now you
can enjoy the game you love in
unprecedented comfort and
style.
It's just one of the ways inter-
ested boosters and fans can help
support the Bugs as they con-
tinue to bring the best high
school softball in the state right
here to beautiful, upscale Bar-
tow, Florida. ,
Head coach for the Lady Jack-
ets, Glenn Rutenbar, said that
there's plenty of other ways for
the community to help support
the young athletes.

CHANGES ARE MADE IN
DETERMINATIONS OF
BASE FLOOD ELEVA-
TIONS FOR THE CITY OF
LAKELAND, POLK
COUNTY, FLORIDA, UN-
DER THE
NATIONAL FLOOD IN-
SURANCE PROGRAM
On December 20, '2000, the
Department of Homeland Secu-
rity's Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency identified
Special Flood Hazard Areas (
SFHAs) in the unincorporated
areas of Polk County, Florida,
through the issuance ,of a Flood
Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). The
Mitigation Divis has deter-
mined that modification of the
elevations of the flood having a
1-percent chance of being
equaled or exceeded in any
given year (base flood) for cer-
tain locations in'this community
is appropriate. The;,modified
Base Flood Elevations (BFEs)
revise the FIRM for the commu-
nity.
The changes are being made
pursuant to Section 206 of the
Flood Disaster Protection Act
of 1973. (Public Law 93-234)
and are in accordance with the,
National Flood insurance Act of
1968, as amended (Title XIII of
the Housing and Urban Devel-
opment Act of 1968, Public
Law 90-448), 42 U.S.C. 4001-
4218, and 44 CFR Part 65.
A hydraulic analysis was per-
formed to incorporate more
detailed hydrologid and hydrau-
lic information and more up-to-
date topographic for Ponding
Area 12, located approximately
3,700 feet southeast of the in-
tersection of Gateway Boule-
vard.andl Whitten.Roao, and for
Ponding Area 14, located ap-
proximately 3,950 feet south-
east of the above-mentioned
intersection. This has resulted
in decreased BFEs for Ponding
Area 12. The table below indi-
cates existing and modified
BFEs for selected locations
along the affected lengths of
the flooding sources) cited
above.
Location: Ponding Area 12:
Approximately 3,700 feet
southeast of the intersection
of Gateway Boulevard and
Whitten Road
Existing BFE (feet)': 138
Modified BFE (feet)*: 137
*National Geodetic Vertical
Datum, rounded to nearest
whole foot
Under the above-mentioned
Acts of 1968 and 1973, the
Mitigation Division must de-
velop criteria for floodplain
management. To participate in
the National Flood Insurance
Program (NFIP), the community
must use the modified BFEs to
administer the floodplain man-
agement measures of the NFIP.
These modified BFEs will also
be used to calculate the appro-
priate flood insurance premium
rates for new buildings and
their contents and for the sec-
ond layer of insurance on exist-
ing buildings and contents.
Upon the second publication
of notice of these changes in
this newspaper, any person has
90 days in which he or she can
request, through the Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer of the commu-
nity, that the Mitigation Divi-
sion reconsider the determina-
tion. Any request for reconsid-
eration must be based on
knowledge of changed condi-
tions or new scientific or tech-
nical data. All interest parties
are on notice that until the 90-
day period elapses, the Mitiga-
tion Division's determination to
modify the BFEs may itself be
changed.
Any person having knowl-
edge or wishing to comment on
these changes should immedi-
ately notify:

So faith, hope, love
these three: but the grea
these is love.
R.S.V. 1 Corinthians 13


Are You a Good

Lover?
Most of us are often severely limited in our ability to
love our fellow human beings, partly because of a natur-
al instinct for self-preservation, and partly because we
have learned that if we don't look out for our own inter-
ests, no one else will. And, while a modicum of self-inter-
est is perhaps a good thing, most of us probably have too
much self-interest for our own good, and our constant
concern about our own health and well-being can prevent
us from being appropriately concerned about others.
What really strikes us about such exemplary models of
loving kindness as Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, or
Mahatma Gandhi is their lack of concern for their own
self-interest. All of these people were great lovers because
they disregarded their own interests in favor of the inter-
ests of.others. And of course, it is easy to love those who
love us back and genuinely treat us well. The real chal-
lenge is to love those who don't treat us well, and espe-
cially those who actively dislike us. Jesus and Buddha
wabide, ere fundamentally in agreement on this, with Buddha
abide, saying "0 let us live in joy, in love amongst those who
test of hate, let us live in love." And, Jesus put it this way: "Love
your enemies and pray for those who persecute you."

The current concern about a
possible bird flu pandemic. kill-.
ing .hundreds of thousands
brings back memories of the Asi-
atic :flu, a vicious virus of the
'50s that claimed many lives.
While traveling to another
state: during that time to conduct
a two-week mission, I became
concerned about the dangers of
this plague and found myself so
filled with fear about what might
be ahead tifat unwanted ques-
tions began to. surface:
What if so. many in the com-
munity to which I was .headed,
were.stricken with this new flu
that few were able .to attend the
meetings?
What if I became ill and un-
able to carry out my mission?
These concerns moved me to
pray. My prayer went: something
like this: "Lord,'keep me from
getting the Asihtic flui during the
next two weeks."
Arid my prayer' was .answered.
I felt fine for the next 14 days
and had..no difficulty fulfilling
my responsibilities.
Now for the rest of the story:
Sh-ortly after returning, I be-
came' so ill that I was unable'to
travel to the doctor's office, mak-
ing it. necessary for this good
man to drive to our rural home
to treat me. His medication,

prayed so timidly, requesting
only to escape the Asiatic flu for
two weeks.
Good question.
And here's a related one:
Wh. do we limit God by pray-
ing puny prayers when He has
the power to do far more than we
can ask or think (Ephesians
3:20)?
I once worked with a man
who had a severe drinking prob-
lem. Alcohol had affected his
health and finally resulted in a,
bleeding stomach ulcer that
nearly ended his life.
After being rushed. to the hos-
pital, he received a considerable
amount of blood and eventually
began to recover. His road back
to health was hindered, however,
by anxiety over debts he had ac-
cumulated due to heavy drink-
ing.
.. One day, his father-in-law
went to the hospital to visit him
and while there, asked if he had
learned anything from this expe-
rience. He answered that he had
learned how dangerous it was for,
him to drink and said he was
through with, alcohol.
"If you mean that," his father-
in-law said, "I am gong to pay
every debt you owe and give you
a new start."
My friend was speechless at
this generous offer.
"But, Dad," he replied, "you
have no idea how much I owe."
"You have no idea how much I
have," his father-in-law said.


And after the hospital stay
was over, he brought his son-in-
'law a checkbook of signed checks
with which he paid all of those
debts that had been troubling
him.
We have a rich Heavenly Fa-
ther who cares,, and we ought to
honor Him by believing His
promises to answer our prayers
about anything that troubles us
- even the bird flu.
Let homes and churches be
filled with people praying boldly
for deliverance from this poten-
tial plague, whether through
medical breakthroughs or divine
intervention.
The One who sees a sparrow
fall invites us to pray in faith,
expecting His protection to ar-
rive on time and last until all flu
fears are through.
