HONORING ARMED FORCES members, veterans, families and
friends joined for a program on Veterans Day Friday morning at 11
a.m. Originally commemorating the end of World War I, the day now
recognizes veterans both living and dead. Retired Marine Cal Adams,
wearing his World War II uniform, reminded the crowd that it was not
only Veterans Day, but also the day after the Marines' 230th birthday.

Edwards Proposes Clarification


Of Charter Amendment Process


Bartow will convert to a
garbage collection system next
year that will allow the city to
reduce both its payroll and its
equipment costs and make more
money on garbage collection.
City commissioners heard
about the new system from
Sanitation Dir. Daryl Stewart,
then passed on first reading an
ordinance to put the new system
in place and approved a $570,027
budget amendment to pay for
new equipment.
Each home will be furnished a
roll-out cart into which bagged
garbage will be placed twice a
week. (Yard trash must be
bagged, but will not be placed in
the roll-out carts; a story in
Monday's Democrat was in error
on that point.)
The city will furnish 90-gallon
carts enough capacity for a
family of four unless the house-
hold requests a 60-gallon cart,
Stewart said. For comparison,
most conventional garbage cans
have a capacity of 30 gallons.
The carts are to be rolled to
curbside by 7 a.m. on collection
day.
A "side-loader" garbage truck
with only one employee the dri-
ver will pick up the cart with
an arm, empty it into the truck,
and return the cart to the ground.
The city will purchase two of
the trucks initially, Stewart said,
and a third in the future.
The city's present rear-loader
trucks have a crew of three two
sanitation workers and a driver.
The city will eliminate the hiring
of temporary "day laborers," and
will reduce its fleet of garbage
trucks from four to three, he said.
Full-time sanitation employees
will retain their jobs, he said.
Every household will get a roll-
out cart. Some will be serviced by
the side-loader trucks, and the
others by three-man crews until a
third side-loader is purchased.
Backyard service will continue
for customers who pay extra and
for customers who are physically


The person arrested at a youth
football game in Fort Meade for
striking an official on Nov. 5 is
not a member of the Heartland
Officials Assn., according to
George C. Parsons, president of
the organization.
"The man arrested was a par-
ent who had volunteered to help
out on the chain crew, as is
required by Heartland Youth


unable to roll their carts to the
curb.
There will be no charge for one
cart per household. Additional
carts may be rented for $2 a
month.
A cart that is damaged or
destroyed through negligence of
the customer will be replaced for
a charge of $4 a month for one
year.
Carts that are stolen or
destroyed by vandalism will be
replaced for free if a report is filed
with the police department.
With delivery of the carts, the
city will include a brochure
explaining their use, Stewart
said.
People who already have pur-
chased roll-out carts from the city
will get their money back as a
rebate on their utilities bills.
The new sanitation ordinance
requires that the carts be
removed from curbside before
dark. Stewart said the carts
should be moved to the side yard
or back yard, or placed in some
other place where they cannot be
seen from the curb.
Customers will be required to
return their carts to the city when
moving, and will be subject to a
$60 fee for neglecting to do so
when having their utilities dis-
connected.
Roll-out carts have been used.
in the downtown area by small
businesses for several months.
The household carts will be iden-
tical to the carts in the downtown
area, except that they will be
green. The carts for commercial
customers are brown.
The monthly fees of $18 for
curbside pick-up and $30 for
backyard pick-up are unchanged.
The city will reduce fees for spe-
cial pick-ups of household goods:
Furniture, $7 (previously
$9).
Mattresses, $4 (previously
$9).
Small appliances, $5 (previ-
ously $7).
The ordinance adopting the


Football League," Parsons said in
a letter to The Leader.
"On this particular day and
site there were five officials
working the game. They were ref-
eree, umpire, line judge, lines-
man and ECO.
"The man arrested was not
nor has he ever been a member of
our organization.
'The story and headline in


new system was passed by unani-
mous vote on first reading, and
will come up for a public hearing
and final passage on Nov. 21.
The conversion will be made
after the first of the year. The
date will depend on when the new
trucks are delivered, City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge said.
The revised sanitation ordi-
nance also establishes regula-
tions for commercial refuse
haulers operating within the city
limits.
The commission also:
Postponed consideration of
pay raises for the city manager,

ordinance rezoning 15.3 acres of
land on U.S. Highway 17 North,
owned by Duratek Wall Corp., as
1-2 (industrial) and conservation
lands.
Passed on first reading an
ordinance to approve the final
plat of Wellington View, a 60-unit
subdivision in Connersville, a lit-
tle south of State Road 60 and
immediately west of the Old
Connersville Road.

budget to cover the equipment for
the roll-out cart system and to
provide an additional $254,451
for street resurfacing.
Updated the city's five year
capital improvements plan.
Heard Gerald Cochran's
complaint about the city's new
stormwater tax. He said vacant
land should not be assessed a fee.


your newspaper misconstrued
facts and information that cre-
ates antagonism and contrariety
towards sports officials."
Fort Meade police arrested
Bobby Lynn Starks, 38, of
Sebring, and charged him with
battery on Bill Hoffman, one of
the officials officiating the game.
Starks told police he acted in
self defense.

Polk County's charter should
be amended to establish clearer
rules on bringing citizen-initiat-
ed amendments to referendum,
Elections Supv. Lori Edwards
told the county commission last
week.
Her recommendations echoed,
in large part, the grand jury 'find-
ings in an investigation into a
charter initiative to bring the
county's five constitutional offi-
cers under the charter, to limit
them to two consecutive terms in
office, and to cut their pay in
half.
The grand jury indicted
Dewey Smith, who heads the
charter amendment effort, for
violating the law in the petition
drive, and urged that the petition
effort be thrown out.
Circuit Judge John Laurent
thus far has refused to invalidate
the petitions, which will take to
the voters a decision on bringing
constitutional officers under the
charter and limiting them to two
terms in office. The pay cut refer-
endum did' not get the required
number of petitions.
Amendments can be proposed
by the county commission, by the


charter commission, or by citizen
initiative.
Ms. Edwards urged the com-
mission to initiate charter
changes to clarify several details
in the initiative process. She said
state law offers insufficient guid-
ance on the county charter
amendment process.
The issues she raised:
The charter requires that to
bring amendments to the ballot,
petitions must be signed by seven
percent of the voters in each of
the five county commission dis-
tricts. The number of registered
voters changes daily, and the
charter does not specify the date
on which the seven percent is
determined.
Ms. Edwards suggested that
the date could be Jan. 1, the date
of the last general election, or the
date on which the petition is sub-
mitted.
The charter is vague on the
amount of time in which peti-
tions may be gathered. It
requires that they be submitted
within one year, and that if an
insufficient number of petitions
is submitted, the petitioners
have an additional 30 days to cor-
rect the deficiency. The charter
does not say whether the 30 days
must be within the initial one
year, or is in addition to that


year.
The charter should clear up
that issue, Ms. Edwards said.
Other alternatives would be to
eliminate the 30-day period to
correct deficiencies, or to base
petition deadlines on election
dates, rather than allowing one
year.
The charter requires that
each proposed amendment deal
with a single subject, but does
not say who makes that determi-
nation.
Ms. Edwards suggested that
the charter be amended to
require an advisory opinion by a
judge. County Atty. Joe Jarret
suggested that the decision
should be made by a circuit
judge.
The charter requires that
petitions be submitted "when a
sufficient number of signatures is
obtained," but doesn't explain the
terminology.
Ms. Edwards said that if that
means that petitions should not
be submitted until seven percent
of the voters from each commis-
sion district have signed them, it
encourages submission of a large
batch of petitions as the deadline
approaches. She suggested that
charter amendment petitions be
submitted like candidate qualifi-
cation petitions, which are sub-


mitted periodically, not all at
once. Commission Chm. Jack
Myers said that when he quali-
fied for office by petition, rather
than by paying a filing fee, he
submitted petitions in batches to
see how many more were needed.
The charter requires that
fees be paid as required in "gen-
eral law," but Florida law don't
address that issue.
Ms. Edwards suggested that
the fees be the same as for certi-
fying petitions for candidates: 10
cents per signature. She said peo-
ple can avoid paying the fees by
saying they can't afford it. "You
just sign a thing that says you're
broke," she said.
The charter requires that
quarterly reports be submitted to
the supervisor of elections, but
doesn't say what should be in the
reports.
Ms. Edwards said she sees no
purpose in the reports, especially
if petitions are submitted period-
ically, rather than all at once.
Myers suggested that state law
be fAllowed, but Jarret said some
state laws don't apply to charter
amendments.
The charter requires that a
summary of the proposed amend-

Volunteer opportunities in-


Salvador Dali Museum will of-
fer 50 percent off its regular ad-
mission to all Polk County resi-
dents from now through Wednes-
day, Nov. 30, with proof of resi-
dency.
"We realize that Floridians
seeking a weekend getaway are
faced with increasing economic
considerations, most notably, the
increase in gas prices," said
Hank Hine, executive director of
the Salvador Dali Museum.
"We'd like to encourage people to
visit St. Petersburg by lowering
the admission pYice for our
guests traveling from other parts
of the state."
Floridians taking advantage
of this offer will find it is their
last chance to view exhibits
nearing the end of their runs.
Following a long absence from
the museum, 13 key works are
back on display after touring ex-
tensively in 2004 as part of the
100th anniversary of Dali's
birth.
Also on display is the muse-
um's most recent acquisition,
"Gala Contemplating the Medi-
terranean Sea Which at Twenty
Meters Becomes A Portrait of
Abraham Lincoln (Homage to
Rothko) (1976)."
The large-scale masterpiece is
Dali's most reproduced image
and must be seen to be believed.
The next comprehensive exhi-
bition at the Salvador Dalf Mu-
seum will feature Dali's work
juxtaposed with that of major
American artists of the post-
WWII era.
Featured works by Jackson
Pollock, Andy Warhol, Roy
Lichtenstein, Willem de Koon-
ing, Mark Rothko, James Rosen-
quist, and Chuck Close will be
presented to elucidate Dali's on-
going exploration of both pain-
torly and image-based means of
representation.
The Salvador Dali Museum is
located at 1000 Third Street
South, St. Petersburg, and is
open daily from 9:30 to 5:30,
Thursday from 9:30 to 8:00, and


clude greeting visitors, selling
tickets and driving a shuttle.
Training sessions for CAP vol-
unteers will be held Nov. 17 and
18 in the lecture hall at Historic
Bok Sanctuary.
New volunteers are asked to
select and attend one morning
session from 9:30 a.m. to noon to
learn about the history of the
Sanctuary, Pinewood Estate and
Christmas at Pinewood.
New and returning volunteers
need to attend one afternoon ses-
sion from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Nov.
17 or 18 to discuss the event
theme and specific volunteer op-
portunities. Volunteers will sign
up for their shift schedule at
that time.
For more information and an
application, contact Lisa Allen at
676-1408, ext. 2224, or e-mail
lallen@boksanctuary.org.


Sunday from 12:00 to 5:30.
The Museum is sponsored in
part by the Pinellas County Arts
Council, the city of St. Peters-
burg, the State of Florida, Des-
partment of State, Division of
Cultural Affairs, and the Florida
Arts Council.

November Named Manatee

Awareness Month


Manatees are often called one
of the most treasured marine
mammals on earth and are con-
sidered by many to be a vital
part of America's natural heri-
tage.
For the last several years,
Florida governor Jeb Bush has
signed a proclamation naming
November as "Manatee Aware-
ness Month," the time of year
when manatees usually start re-
turning to Florida's warm water
winter refuges.
"The manatee is Florida's offi-
cial marine mammal, a distinc-
tive and valuable natural re-
source," reads the proclamation
recently signed by the governor.
Many Floridians enjoy living in a
state where manatees live, and
there are plenty of tourists
around the world who look for-
ward to visiting The Sunshine
State to see these unique crea-
tures.
"Manatee Awareness Month
is a great tradition Florida's gov-
ernors have supported year after
year," says Patrick Rose, Save
the Manatee Club's director of
government relations.
"Each year as Florida's hu-
man population grows, it is an
important reminder that we
must watch out for these gentle
creatures. This year, it seems
more important than ever as the
U.S. House of Representatives
recently passed a bill that will, if
passed by the Senate, greatly
weaken regulations mandated by
the Endangered Species Act,
which has protected America's
imperiled species for decades."
Club representatives also
point out that increasing de-
mand for habitat development in
Florida and other states has fu-
eled such efforts to weaken un-
derlying protections for all im-
periled species as well as efforts
to downgrade their listing status
undef these weakened laws.
For example, Florida has al-
ready downgraded the federally
endangered red-cockaded wood-
pecker and is likely to down-
grade the endangered manatee.


despite evidence that most of the
manatee population in Florida
has likely declined in recent
years as a result of rising threats
to their future survival.
Watercraft collisions are the
number one known cause of
manatee mortality. Since record
keeping began in 1974, through
Oct. 31, 2005, 1,369 manatees
have been killed by boats.
Additionally, manatees be-
come entangled in monofilament
fishing and crab trap lines; they
ingest debris; and they drown or
get crushed in flood gates and
canal locks. Places where mana-
tees feed, rest, breed and birth
their young are shrinking under
the pressures of a rapidly devel-
oping state.
Rose, an avid boater and fish-
erman himself, explains that
Save the Manatee Club is asking
the boating public to make it
their goal to slow down and give
manatees a much-needed break.
To help spread the word about
manatees, the club is giving
away free manatee adoptions to
the first 150 high school science
classes that apply.
Each class will receive a one-
year membership in Save the
Manatee Club that includes a
photo of the manatee they select
for adoption, the manatee's biog-

Children's Book Week

Begins Tuesday At Library


Children's Book Week will be
celebrated in style at the Bartow
SPublic Library this week.
Beginning with a fashion
show on Tuesday, patrons will
see staff members dressed as fa-
vorite storybook characters.
This is Children's Book Char-
acter Day and all visitors are
challenged to identify just who is
portraying what literary mem-
ory.
Special displays throughout
the week will feature favorite
books staff members have en-
joyed in their childhood.
These books may represent
stories read to them by parents
or grandparents, or books that
became favorites as they learned
to read.
Another display is a "Guess
the Book" challenge.
Numerous objects are exhib-
ited that depict a children's book
in some way.
For example, a rubber ducky
may represent "Make Way for
Ducklings." This creative display
may defy easy answers, such as
the example.

partnerships created through in-
ternational education and ex-
change are important for a se-
cure future.
IEW is designed to promote
programs that prepare Ameri-
cans for a global environment
and attract future leaders from
abroad to study, learn, and ex-
change experiences in the
United States.
Since its founding in 1964,
AIFS has provided exchange op-
portunities for more than one
million participants.
Through AIFS, Bartow stu-
dents have many opportunities
to get involved and help make an
impact on the world.
Academic Year in America
(AYA), sponsored by the AIFS
Foundation, facilitates exchange
programs for hundreds of high
school students around the
world. AIFS Summer Advantage
enables high school students to
spend their summer abroad in
six locations.
College students are able to
choose from more than 20 pro-
grams and locations and spend a
semester, year, or summer
abroad.
The Global Adventures Pro-
ject (GAP) is an exciting volun-
teer program where students
spend three to twelve months of
their gap year in Brazil, South
Africa, India or Australia.
AIFS also offers opportunities
for non-students in the Bartow
area to join the celebration of in-
ternational education.
Families can open their
hearts and minds by hosting an
exchange student with AYA or


volunteer as a local coordinator.
Families in need of childcare
can explore the option of Au Pair
in America, AIFS' live-in child-
care solution.
This exchange program also
helps teach children interna-
tional education skills, including
the learning of other languages,
cultures, and traditions.
Au Pair in America has
launched "Meet Your Global
Neighbor," a global awareness
program dedicated to educating
American students about cul-
tures and customs in different
countries through interaction
with au pairs from around the
world.
Participating au pairs engage
in classroom activities and dis-
cussions that support existing
curriculum with age-appropriate
modules enhancing cultural un-
derstanding.
One project saw American
students studying abroad at the
University of Stellenbosch in
South Africa through AIFS, vol-
unteer to work in Kayamandi, a
poverty-stricken local township
located on the outskirts of Stel-
lenbosch.
The student volunteer efforts
included time at the primary
school teaching English, doing
arts and crafts with the stu-
dents, and playing sports.
The outreach efforts of the in-
ternational college students in
Kayamandi have led to waste re-
moval, construction of a basket-
ball court, painting of the
schools, and building houses.
Another example of the
Global Awareness project in ac-
tion is the Youth Exchange and
Study Program (YES), a high
school exchange program funded
by the U.S. Department of
State's Bureau of Education and
Cultural Affairs.
Developed after the attacks of
9/11, YES focuses on placing stu-
dents from Muslim countries
with American families and
schools.
AYA has placed YES students
from Egypt, Indonesia, Malay-
sia, the Philippines, Saudi Ara-
bia and Turkey throughout
America.

Charter Amendments


Are Not Rocket Science


Almost never does anybody set out to
create confusion or chaos.
Nobody intentionally writes a law that
can be interpreted in several different
ways, or that can't be interpreted at all.
By the very nature of the term, "The Law
of Unintended Consequences" produces
consequences that were unintended.
Practically all such difficulties come
under the heading of: "Well, it seemed like
a good idea at the time."
The Polk County charter commission,
we believe, did a good job of writing, a
"starter charter," a framework for self-gov-
ernment that was approved by the voters.
A charter county makes many of its own
rules, rather than following the "one size
fits all" rules in Florida's Constitution and
statutes.
But the charter commission came up a
little short when it outlined the way by
which citizens may amend the charter
through citizen initiative.
Elections Supv. Lori Edwards, whose
office must process charter amendment
petitions, submitted to the Polk County
commission last week a list of points on
which she thinks clarification is needed.
Each of her points is well taken.
Some are simple questions that can be
met with simple answers. Others merit
more intensive study.
The charter requires that petitions be
submitted by seven percent of the regis-
tered voters in each county commission
district, but doesn't say on what day that
determination is made: As of the last gen-
eral election? On Jan. 1? On the date notice
of a petition drive is given?
Simple fix: pick a date.
The charter requires that each amend-
ment deal with a single subject, but doesn't
say who makes the decision. Citizen-initi-
ated amendments to the Florida
Constitution go to the Supreme Court for
that determination.
Simple fix: send county charter initia-
tives to circuit court, either to a judge
selected at random, or to the chief judge.
The charter requires a ballot summary,
but doesn't require that it be accurate, and
doesn't limit the number of words.
Simple fix: track the provision of the
Florida Constitution (75 words) and let the
circuit court review the summary for accu-
racy.
The charter requires that petitions be
submitted "when a sufficient number of
signatures is obtained," which would
appear to mean submitting them all at
once.


Simple fix: allow them to be submitted
in batches as the process moves forward.
Flooding the supervisor's office with peti-
tions at the last minute makes no sense.
The charter requires "quarterly
reports," but doesn't say what is to be
reported.
Simple fix: eliminate the requirement.
Government doesn't need any more mean-
ingless reports.
And then there are some substantive
issues that need to be resolved.
One is the schedule for submitting pro-
posed amendments.
The charter allows one year for present-
ing petitions, and 30 days for correcting
deficiencies. To our way of thinking, that
means a total of 13 months, but the charter
is not clear on that point. It should be made
clear.
Another issue, on which the charter is
silent, is the degree of proof that should be
required for authenticating petitions.
Unfortunately, the reality of the petition
process, at both the state and county levels,
is that it is easier to hire professional peti-
tion gatherers than to have a genuine voter
initiative. Paid gatherers get a dollar or
two per signature, whether the signature is
legitimate or not. To say the least, there is
no incentive to verify the legitimacy of
each signature.
We agree with Ms. Edwards that this,
issue should be addressed in Florida
statutes.
But until and unless that happens, each
petition should bear the signature of the
solicitor, and an indication of whether or
not identification was shown by the signer.
The prime mover behind each petition
drive -in this case, Dewey Smith -
should not be held accountable for the
accuracy of each signature.
This is not rocket science.
The fixes are simple.
And Lori Edwards is correct: the fixes
should be written into the charter.

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

Counting What Counts


E-mail has made it possible
for us to communicate with
each other with an immediacy
approaching a phone call, but at
a time most convenient for us.
It has also made it possible to
flood the world with junk mail
and baseless rumors with the
speed of light.
Okay, with the speed of dial-
up, or DSL. That's a little slow-
er than the speed of light.
Sometimes much slower.
In addition to the welcomed
communications from friends
and family, and two or three
opportunities a day to become a
millionaire by helping steal
some money from the account
of somebody who died in a
plane crash or stole the money
himself from a foreign govern-
ment, I get a lot of.forwarded E-
mail.
Most of it is interesting; a lot
of it is humorous; some of it
instructional; a little of it inspir-
ing.


It generally falls into these
categories:
Political rants and satire
from both the left and the right.
Humorous observations on
growing older (almost all of it
sent to me by people younger
than I, and I think there's a mes-
sage there).
Tips on military retiree
issues from a fellow Florida
National Guard retiree.
Inspirational messages,
both religious and secular, from
a variety of perspectives.
I read them all, and forward
the best to family and a few
close friends.
Here's one that really
touched my heart.
It is represented as the phi-
losophy of Charles Schultz, cre-
ator of the "Peanuts" comic
strip. You don't have to actually
answer the questions; just read
through them.

1. Name the five wealthiest


people in the world.
2. Name the last five
Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners
of the Miss America Pageant.
4. Name 10 people who have
won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen
Academy Award winners for
best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's,
worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us
remembers the headliners of
yesterday. These are no second-
rate achievers. They are the best
in their fields. But the applause
dies. Awards tarnish.
Achievements are forgotten.
Accolades and certificates are
buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how
you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who
aided your journey through
school.
2. Name three friends who


have helped you through a dif-
ficult time.
3. Name five people who
have taught you something
worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who
have made you feel appreciated
and special.
5. Think of five people you
enjoy spending time with.
Easier?
The lesson: 'the people who
make a difference in your life
are not the ones with the most
credentials, the. most money, or
the most awards. They are the
ones who care.
Pass this on to those people
who have made a difference in
your life.

The message ends with an
entertaining quote attributed to
Schultz:
"Don't worry about the
world coming to an end today.
It's already tomorrow in
Australia."

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

News Flash: Overeating, Equals Overweight


I saw an article in the New
York Times this week that really
made my blood boil.
It was written by a columnist
who was giving the "latest
information" from a bunch of
"experts" from different
schools, universities and some
places that probably don't even
have football teams.
I know it is difficult to come
up with a topic for a column
every day or week, but I think
everything that can be written
about weight has been written. I
know that I have probably read
every book, article, and ad for
miracle products that has been
written since I learned to read. I
don't know why I am such a
sucker to read every word on
the subject.
The latest wisdom that came
to my attention was entitled,
"Hunger gene also suppresses
appetite." It was written by
some man or other who proba-
bly has it on the list of the list of the 10
most interesting subjects to
write about that he got out of
the Writer's Digest.
This so-called gene has its
own name, it comes from a hor-
mone called ghrelia, which was
identified five years ago. This
new discovery shows that the
same gene also causes the body
to produce a hormone that
reduces hunger. This new hor-
mone is named obestatin. Why
don't they ever name things like
that Wizard Stuff? The article
goes on to say that humans, lab-
oratory rats, cows and seven
other mammals have this gene.
Produced by cells in the


digestive tract, the two hor-
mones circulate in the blood
and deliver opposite messages
to receptors in the brain. What?
This is supposed to make us
fat? What does Jenny Craig
have to say about this?
Some scientists insist that
before such a drug could even
be tested, a great deal of
research should be done to
understand the precise way
Oberstatin works. Dr.
Natthias Tschop says, "This is a
surprising and intriguing dis-
covery." He added that obesity
is considered one of America's
fastest-growing health prob-
lems.
In a report issued earlier in


the week, Dr. Derek Yach pre-
dicted that obesity-related dia-
betes would be the leading
cause of death in the country
within two decades unless it is
checked.
Also listed in this piece were
Messrs. Aaron J.W. Hsush,
Derek Yach and Michael
Stebbins, who are working on
this problem and who expect to
find out a whole lot of interest-
ing things in the next 20 years.
I hate to say this, but I don't
care what they find out in the
next 20 years. I once weighed
248 pounds and now weigh 145.
I found out what was causing it.
Eating.
Has anyone given any


thought to that?
Years ago, when Bishop
Claiborne was the Bishop of
Atlanta, I belonged to the
Episcopal Churchwomen and
was helping serve a dinner dur-
ing Lent. The Bishop and Mrs.
Claiborne were #t my table.
I did the bunIiy dip and said,
"Good evening, Bishop, I am
your bunny, Patricia." I also
mentioned thai 'I had given up
Metrecal for Leri and gained 20
pounds. I
Mrs. Claiborixe thought that
was really funny, but the other
Episcopal Churchwomen
almost drummed me out of the
group.

RIDING IN A Model T Ford at Flywheel Park Jim Sparks, and in the back, Allen and Chuck
are Fort Meade City Manager Katrina Powell and Hancock. (Photo provided)


By LETA WRIGHT

We have some extra 2006
birthday calendars if you would
like to have one. They are $6 and
the pictures are beautiful, with
so many Fort Meade people pic-
tured. If you would like one, call
me, Leta Wright, 285-9182. It
would make a great stocking
stuffer for Christmas.

The Flywheel Park on Avon
Park Cut-Off Road opened on
Wednesday with a deluge of peo-
ple. The village is filled with
workers ready to show their re-
spective buildings. It's amazing
the thousands of people who
travel to this Flywheel park from
all over the United States.
It opens for five days in the
months of November, January
and February.
There are approximately


1,200 flea market vendors lined
up to sell their wares. There are
tractors that pull sit-down wag-
ons to transport folks throughout
the village and the flea market.
There are golf carts for rent if
you would like your own vehicle
to travel around.
Some of the RV travelers
drive into the campground and
'spend the whole five days or
longer.
And isn't it wonderful that the
weather is so beautiful and per-
fect for our visitors.
They serve about 600 to.1,000
for breakfast, 1,000 for lunch,
and 400 up for dinner in the
open-air food pavilion that is
filled with picnic tables and
benches. It is the perfect place
for everyone to eat and visit.
They put on a number of
shows at various times, such as
the Model T Ford Parade, Trac-


tor Pulls, and a team that takes
apart a Model T Ford that they
can put back together -in' four
minutes. Spectacular.
There are all sizes of fly
wheels in the park from one-inch
diameter to the largest flywheel
in the world, which is 12 feet in
diameter. It is housed under its
own shed for everyone to see. I
can write all the great things
about Flywheel Park, but you
really have to see it to believe it.
Cost at the gate is $5.

I have had a number of com-
ments from folks saying how
pretty the new roof is looking on
the Museum. It is nearly fin-
ished on the north side. Do ride
by and take a look. The outside
has a complete new paint job
and looks so clean.

Nutrition Notes



Smoking Does Not Keep Weight Off


Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN
American Institute for
Cancer Research

Surveys show that fear of
weight gain keeps many smokers
from quitting.
Weight gain after quitting,
however, is not universal, and it
averages only six to eight pounds
in those who do gain.
Moreover, new research is
identifying ways to thwart this
tendency for weight gain and
help would-be quitters focus on
the many positive benefits of
quitting that are more impor-
tant.
People who formerly smoked
seem to suffer weight gain partly
because they eat instead of
smoke, and their calorie intake
rises.
In addition, when nicotine is
removed from their system, their
metabolic rate falls a bit and
they burn calories more slowly.
One new German study, how-
ever, reports that smoking cessa-
tion is not always strongly
linked to weight gain.
In that study and other new
studies, the tendency to gain
weight is related to the number
of cigarettes someone smoked
daily, especially more than a
pack a day. Women may also be
less likely than men to gain
weight, although they complain
far more about their fear of
weight gain.
Exercise is one of the most ef-
fective tools to avoid weight gain
after quitting. Two or three 10-
or 15-minute blocks of activity
can burn up enough calories to
compensate for a drop in a per-
son's metabolic rate.
In addition, by reducing stress
and improving a person's mood,


regular exercise can decrease
any possible emotion-based eat-
ing.
In a study of women in one
smoking cessation program,
those who exercised vigorously
three times a week did not in-
crease their calorie consumption.
They were also less likely to gain
weight and more likely to re-
main non-smokers a year later.
Other research shows that ten
minutes of moderate exercise of-
fers a rapid and significant drop
in people's desire to smoke and
in their withdrawal symptoms.
Snacks and alcohol appear to
be the main sources of increased
calorie consumption when people
quit smoking.
Since drinking alcohol and
smoking are strongly linked, it
might help people succeed in
quitting and controlling their
weight to avoid social situations
where alcohol is served during
the first few weeks after stop-
ping.
Some people also find that the
urge to smoke or eat excessively
is easier to handle if they eat
small amounts of food several
times a day. This habit prevents
their blood sugar from dropping
too low.
To satisfy your appetite and
urges with this method, the key
is to choose balanced snacks, not
sweets or chips.
Even if a smoker is terribly
worried about weight gain, stud-
ies show that dieting at the same
time you try to quit smoking is
usually ineffective and may even
interfere.
When smokers substantially
reduce their calorie intake, they
tend to smoke more. A study at
the University of Illinois com-
pared programs in which women


tackled weight control at the
same time as smoking cessation
or two months later.
The women had much better
results when they began dieting
two months after quitting. Some
experts suggest that nicotine
gums and inhalers that help peo-
ple succeed in quitting can pro-
vide time to learn habits needed
for weight control before any
weight gain begins.
It also may be important for
smokers to change their atti-
tudes and thought patterns
about weight control and smok-
ing.
Researchers at the University
of Pittsburgh report that women
who participated in therapy
groups that helped eliminate un-
realistic thoughts about weight
and smoking were more success-
ful in quitting and gained less
weight than women who focused
only on weight control or re-
ceived social support.
The basic message of the ther-
apy for the successful women
was adopt moderation in eating,
reduce stress levels, and exercise
more.
This message is excellent ad-
vice for everyone trying to stop
smoking. It should remind smok-
ers that, along with the health
benefits like reducing their can-
cer risk, quitting is a chance to
create a lifestyle of self-care.
By sleeping enough, reducing
stress through exercise and re-
laxation and connecting to oth-
ers socially, smokers can transi-
tion to a smoke-free life that's
also more satisfying.

ment be submitted to the super-
visor of elections, but doesn't
require that the summary be
accurate, and doesn't limit the
length of the summary.
'What if the summary is mis-
leading?" she asked. "What if the
summary is 10,000 words long?"
She said that summaries of
amendments to the Florida
Constitution are limited to 75
words.
The charter does not specify
what information must be pro-
vided by people signing petitions.
Ms. Edwards suggested that
petition signers be required, to
give their name, date of birth,
address, and the date the peti-


tion is signed.
"There is literally no
accountability" regarding accuraq-
cy of petition:signatures, or set-
ting'penalties for forged signa-
tures or other fraud.
Ms. Edwards said that profes-
sional petition gatherers are paid
$1 or $2 apiece for each petition.
She suggested that the charter
require petition :gatherers to
identify themselves in advance',
and to sign or initial each peti-
tion, and that a penalty be estab-
lished for fraudulent petitions.
Another option would be to
require that petition signers
show identification, .or that the
petitions have a box on which
petition gatherers could indicate
whether or not identification was


provided. She said she would like
,to see a statp law enacted on that
issue. -
Commissioners accepted her
recommendations for study, and
said they would hold a workshop
to consider amendments to the
initiative process.
Myers suggested that the com-
mission ask those county com-
missioners who were in office
when the charter was adopted
what their intent was on the ini-
tiative process.,
He also suggested that voters
be asked if they want to continue
having Polk as a charter county,
rather than bringing it back
under Florida law relating to
county government.


None but the well-bred man knows how to confess a fault, or acknowledge himself
in an error.

ARP Church Takes Food to Mississippi


SOME 500 POUNDS of Thanksgiving food is
being delivered to 35 needy families in the Moss
Point area of Mississippi, which was ravaged by
Hurricane Katrina. Five deacons from Bartow As-
sociate Reformed Presbyterian Church left early
this morning to deliver the food to Moss Point


For those who just can't wait
for the Christmas season, the
wait is over.
Operation Christmas Child, a
ministry of Samaritan's Purse, is
in full swing all over the world.
Locally, The Polk County Demo-
crat and The Fort Meade Leader
are helping their readers partici-
pate in this ministry.
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,
gum, sunglasses, T-shirts, flash-
lights (with .extra batteries),
socks, jewelry, hair clips, picture
books, etc.
Do not include used items;
war-related items such as toy
guns, knives, etc.; chocolate or
perishable food items; liquids
such as shampoo, conditioner,
bubbles or lotions; medicines
such as vitamins, cough drops,
and ointments; or breakable
items such as mirrors, china
dolls, snow globes, etc.
Donors can include a note or
Christmas card to the child who
will receive the box, and a photo
of themselves. If the donor in-
cludes his name and address, the
child might write them back.
To help cover shipping and
other costs, place $5 and a com-
pleted form (also available at
www.samaritanspurse.org) in an
envelope on top of the box items.
Finally, place a large rubber

Fighting' Miners Stop Sentinels in

First Round of the Playoffs, 21-14


By SANDY DERRICK

Ding, ding, ding; on to round
two.
With a win Friday night over
the Evangelical Christian Senti-
nels, the Miners advance to
round two of the FHSAA play-
offs.
"We knew it would be a good
football game," said Head Coach
Mike Hayde.
"Without the wild-card game,
nowadays, this is the equivalent
of a second-round game. We
knew they had some tough kids
from the film," Hayde said.
"They had been playing good
football. We knew that they were
going to test us. It- was a good
challenge tonight.
"We played well in all three
phases of the game. We threw
the ball; we ran the ball; we
played bend-but-not-break de-
fense; we played good special
teams," said. "Our kicker [Flabio
Valencia] was hurt, but our
back-up kicker Ranferi Cortez
did an excellent job. Any time in
the playoffs, it really doesn't
matter how it happens. The im-
pr.rtant thing .is to advance to
the next round."
The Sentinels won the toss
and deferred to the second half
-A short kickoff was returned
by Tamorris Grace to the Miner
48.:
A flag on the next play moved
the Miners back to their 44.
A series of rushes by Roderick
Clark, Henry Grace, and Danny
Grant took the ball to the Senti-
nel 12.
From there, Grant found
Henry Grace on a play-action
pass for a touchdown.
With Flabio Valencia out with
a pulled groin muscle, Ranferi
(Freddy) Cortez, the kicker for
this year's J.V. squad, came on
for the PAT.
The snap was too high for
Antwan Burke to bring down;
however, Burke was able to get a
hand on the ball. He rolled out,
trying to find an open receiver.
He found Henry Grace in the
end zone for an unexpected, but
welcome, two-point conversion to
put the Miners up 8-0 with 6:54
left in the first quarter.


The most Important
20 minutes of your day
is the time spent reading
with your child from
birth to age nine.

Cortez's kickoff went out of
bounds, giving the Sentinels the
ball on their own 35.
The Sentinels drove the ball
deep into Miner territory and
scored on a short run to bring
the score to 6-8 with just 18 sec-
onds remaining in the first half.
The PAT missed the up-rights
to keep the score at 6-8.
The Sentinel kickoff was re-
turned by Korneil Howard to the
Miner 40.
A run by Clark to the 42
ended the first quarter.
Onterio McCalebb, along with
Clark and Henry Grace, ran the
ball to the Sentinel 35, where
the Miners faced fourth and
eleven.
Grant rolled out of the pocket,
looking for. a receiver. He
couldn't find anyone open, so he
tucked the ball and ran towards
the first down.
He was stopped short, how-
ever, and the Sentinels took over
on their own 31 with 8:19 to play
in the first half.
The Sentinels' drive ended
with an unsuccessful fourth and
five run attempt that gave the
Miners the ball on the Sentinel
46 with 4:02 left in the half.
Henry Grace, Clark, and
McCalebb teamed up to rush the
ball to the Sentinel three.
Clark took the handoff and
ran the ball in for the Miners'
second TD of the night with just
25 seconds remaining in the half.
Cortez's kick flew straight
through the uprights to put the
Miners up 15-6.
The Sentinels returned the
kickoff to the 37, but an inter-
ception by Bradley McMillan
kept the score at 15-6 into half-
time.
During halftime, the score-
board lost power, which forced
the officials to keep tabs from
the sidelines.
Cortez kicked-off to the Senti-
nels to start the third quarter.
The Sentinels returned the
kick to their own 24.
The Sentinels couldn't do
much with the ball, so they
punted to the Miners who took
over on their own 15.
By the time third down rolled
around, the Miners were only on
their 18-yardline, so Hayde de-
cided to try the pass.
McMillan took off down the
sideline and Grant fired the ball
towards him. McMillan dove for
the ball, but couldn't get more
than a fingertip on it as it fell in-
complete.
"They were playing everybody
in the box," said Hayde. "We had
to get them to back off somehow.
It was third and nine, and we
thought we had a match-up; but
we just missed it. I think it
would have been a touchdown if
we had hit it."
Cortez was forced to kick his
only punt of the night.
The special teams didn't give
the Sentinel return man a
chance to return the ball. They
met him at the 50-yardline and
didn't let him go.
Even with the advantageous
field position, the Sentinels were
unable to get anything out of
their drive. The punt bounced
into the end zone for a touch-
back, giving the Miners the ball
on their own 20.
When the officials signaled
the end of the third quarter, the
Miners had worked their way to
the Sentinel 25.
Clark ran the ball to the 23,
one yard short of the first down.
Hayde, however, was not to be
deterred; he sent Grant on a QB
sneak.
The Fort Meade fans were
sure that Grant had a first
down, but the officials wanted


make sure. They brought out the
chains and, after measuring,
gave the Miners the first down.
Clark and Henry Grace ran
the ball to the eight.
Grant fumbled the snap, but
was able to regain possession be-
fore being sacked at the 11.
On the next play, Grant rolled
out in the play action. He found
Michael Williams for the TD
pass to put the Miners up 21-6.
"I thought Henry made a cou-
ple of big runs. They were stack-
ing the outside in the third quar-
ter and Henry was able to pop
the dive in the inside zone and
make some big plays. We needed
that because they were really
trying to take the edge away
from us," said Hayde. "Then
Danny hit a huge play-action
pass."
"[The Sentinels]} were really
crowding everybody, 10, 11 men
in the box; and Danny was able
to throw it over the top to Mi-
chael Williams. That ended up
being the deciding score in the
game. It gave us the cushion
that we needed to play bend-but-
not-break defense."
The two-point conversion at-
tempt failed, but the Miners
were still up 21-6 with approxi-
mately 8:00 left in the game.
Cortez's kickoff was returned
by the-Sentinels to their own 21.
They worked their way to the
Miner 29 where they faced
fourth and five.
They got the first down with a
10-yard pass that put them on
the 19.
They fought their way into
the end zone for their second TD
of the night. The two-point con-
version was good to bring the
score to 14-21 with approxi-
mately 4 minutes to play in the
game.
The Sentinels attempted the
onsides kick, but Gregg Thomas,
another rising J.V. player, was
able to grab the ball to put the
Miners on the Sentinel 46.
Clark, McCalebb, and Tamor-
ris Grace ran the ball to the 36
where the Miners faced fourth
and twelve.
Clark tried to get the first
down, but was taken down at the
30, and the Sentinels took over
on downs.
The Sentinels tried to get a
drive going, but Korneil Howard
crushed any hope of a comeback
With an interception that gave
the Miners the ball on the Senti-
nel 36.
Grant kneeled the ball twice
to end the game.
"I've got to give a lot of credit
to Evangelical Christian," said
Hayde. "We knew this was going
to be a tough football game."
"We got better at defending
their offense. It's a unique of-
fense. They get a lot of people to
the point of attack. It's given a
lot of people trouble this year.
It's a hard offense to simulate
during practice. Once we saw it,
we got better at playing against
it as the game went on. We're
proud of our guys."
Next week, the Miners will
host the Glades Day Gators at
Frank S. Battle Field for round
two of the playoffs.


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
will meet at Key Largo's Shera-
ton Beach Resort, Mile Marker
97, Nov. 30 -Dec. 1.
Wednesday's agenda focuses
on hunting rules, manatee pro-
tection, law enforcement matters
and land acquisition commit-
ments.
Thursday's agenda revolves
around marine issues.
During the first day of the
meeting, commissioners will con-
sider final action on the FWC Di-
vision of Law Enforcement's pro-
posed enforcement procedures
and educational efforts concern-
ing airboat sound reduction.
FWC staff has gathered input
from airboaters, sound experts
and residents who complain
about sound levels produced by
airboat engines and propellers.
Also on Wednesday, Commis-
sioners will consider a rule pro-
posal to discontinue wild hog
hunting on the Bull Creek Wild-
life Management Area (WMA)
during the small-game season
and restrict vehicles to named or
numbered roads or trails
throughout the area year-round.
Another proposed rule, up for
discussion on Wednesday's
agenda, would modify manatee
protection zones in the Placida
Harbor area of Charlotte County
to provide higher speed access to
Little Gasparilla Island.
Commissioners also plan to
review and discuss proposed
2006-07 regulation changes for
wildlife and freshwater fishing


and a draft procedural rule that
would incorporate the FWC's
due process procedures into a
rule, reorganize current proce-
dural rules and repeal obsolete
rules.
Concerning land acquisitions,
commissioners will consider com-
mitting $10 million from the
Florida Forever Trust Fund for
joint acquisition of the Babcock
Ranch and $10 million from the
FWC's Land Acquisition Trust
Fund for potential acquisition of
2,000 acres of the Babcock
Ranch for a gopher tortoise miti-
gation park.
On Thursday, commissioners
will take final action on a pro-
posed rule to reduce the recrea-
tional daily bag limit from two
fish to one fish per person for red
grouper harvested and possessed
in Gulf of Mexico state waters.
Final action also is on the
agenda for proposed rules to es-
tablish that the method for de-
termining the total length meas-
urement for marine fish will be
to measure the straight line dis-
tance from the most forward
point of the head, with the
mouth closed, to the farthest tip
of the tail, with the tail com-
pressed or squeezed, while the
fish is lying on its side.
Proposed rules also would
change the measurement for
gray triggerfish from total length
to fork length.
Another final decision will
come up for consideration on a
proposed rule to establish a non-
transferable blue crab limited-


entry endorsement for certain
net fishermen who have a valid
blue crab endorsement but no
qualified landings.
This endorsement would al-
low these fishermen to use up to
100 traps to harvest and sell
hard shell blue crabs. The pro-
posal also would allow a daily
bycatch of 200 pounds of blue
crabs per vessel from shrimp
trawls and stone crab traps, and
allow a blue crab harvester to
obtain permission from the
FWC's Division of Law Enforce-
ment to let another person trans-
port, deploy, pull or retrieve the
harvester's traps on a short-term
basis for hardship reasons.
Other marine fisheries topics
will include review and discus-
sion of a draft rule to add 14 spe-
cies of sharks to the list of pro-
tected species and Dry Tortugas
National Park special regula-
tions.
Commissioners also will re-
ceive updates on an industry-
sponsored proposal to reduce
commercial fishing effort in the
Gulf red grouper fishery and the
future of saltwater fishing in
Florida, and reports on individ-
ual fishing quotas and various
federal marine fisheries manage-
ment issues.
The meeting will convene at
8:30 a.m. both days and is open
to the public.
Anyone requiring special ac-
commodations to participate
should notify the FWC at least
five days in advance by calling
Cindy Hoffman at 1-850-488-
6411. Hearing- or speech-im-
.paired persons can arrange as-
sistance by calling 1-850-488-
9542.

Feral hogs are a non-native,
nuisance species that damage
natural areas, compete with na-
tive wildlife and destroy vegeta-
tion.
Florida has the second largest
wild hog population in the U.S.,
next to Texas. Wild hogs occur
throughout the state in various
habitats, but prefer moist for-
ests, swamps and pine flatwoods.
They may cause great damage
by rooting with their broad
snouts, leaving large areas that
look like plowed fields.

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 Division 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

opment Act of 1968, Public
Law 90-448), 42 U.S.C. 4001-

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.

edge or wishing to comment on
these changes should immedi-
