480-Unit Townhouse Project


Approved On County Road 555


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher
The site development plan for
a 480-unit townhouse complex on
County Road 555 just west and
southwest, of Square Lake subdi-
vision was approved by the zon-
ing board on Monday.
The property, now an orange
grove, is owned by Bill Konrad,
who built and 'owns the Ashley
Glen apartment complex in
Bartow.
But Konrad said the developer
for the condos, to be known as
Bayport Townhouses, is Bayport
Associates, a New Jersey family
business headed by Jake Curran.
Bayport Associates also has
offices in Stuart, Fla.
The site, previously owned by
Evelyn Clark, is on the east side
of County Road 555 about a quar-
ter-mile south of State Road 60.
She previously sold to the city
the property immediately to the
south of the townhouse site for
expansion of Wildwood Cemetery.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said that primary access to the
townhouses will be from County


Road 555, which currently is
operating at Level of Service C.
"Adequate (transportation)
capacity is in place," he said.
The city's development review
committee recommended
approval, he said.
Zoning on the land permits 12
units per acre, the density sought
by the developer.
Wiegers said that the board's
vote is the only approval that will
come before a public meeting.
Unlike subdivision plats, which
are reviewed by both the zoning
board and the city commission,
the site development plan for con-
dos requires approval only by the
zoning board. All further contact
with city government will be with
the city staff, he said.
In fact, Wiegers said, if the
application had been for conven-
tional apartments rather than
townhouses, the entire process
would have been handled by staff
without review by the zoning
board.
Michael Joachim, development
consultant for Bayport
Associates, said the 480 units will
sell for $200,000 and up, and


should add about $58 million to
the city tax roll.
Construction will begin in
2006, and should be completed in
about a year, he said. Answering
an inquiry from the board,
Joachim said he didn't know if the
units would be sold before they
are built.
The city's building code allows
four-story buildings, or 45 feet,
but all the the four-story units
will face County Road 555, he
said. The units facing Square
Lake will be two stories, he said,
about 20 feet high.
Wiegers said a landscape
buffer of at least 30 feet will be
required between Bayport
Townhouses and Square Lake.
Mayme Clark, who, with her
husband, Richard, owns and is
developing the gated Square Lake
subdivision, asked to speak to the
zoning board, but was told that it
was not a public hearing.
"How can we control the final
design?" she asked.
Mrs. Clark urged the board to
strive for compatibility with
neighboring property.
Board Member Bo Raulerson


said the multi-family zoning has
been in place on the grove proper-
ty "for decades," giving the board
little choice but to approve the
application.
Addressing Zoning Board
Chm. Michael Marchman, Mrs.
Clark urged the board to strive
for "quality, not- quantity" in
development.
Wiegers then urged the zoning
board to go ahead and vote on
Bayport Townhouses, telling
Marchman: "I don't think you can
have a public hearing."
To that, Raulerson replied: "I
think we should consider chang-
ing that."
Raulerson offered a motion to
require a berm and landscaping
on the east side of the townhous-
es overlooking Square Lake. His
motion passed.
Wiegers said the berm can be
no more than three feet high.
With Board Member Susan
Brewer declaring a conflict of
interest because of a past busi-
ness relationship with Konrad,
the other four members voted
unanimously to approve the
development plan.

Do you have any old pho-
tographs of the original
Bartow Civic .Center, which
has been home to the Oaks
School for many years?
The Depression-era' build-
ing boasted the only public
swimming pool in town, a
large multi-purpose room with
a stage, a second floor porch
with a ping-pong table, and
various offices and meeting
rooms.
With the closing of the Oaks
School, which had leased the
building from the city for
decades, the city now plans to
develop the building as an
annex to city hall, which is
located across the street.
City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge wants the restored
building to look as much as


possible like it did before the
school board and later the
Oaks -School rented and
remodeled it. He even plans to
reopen that second-story
porch.
Linda Allen, the city's
grants administrator, plans to
apply for a state historic
preservation grant to help pay
for the restoration.
To assist in both the design
work and the grant applica-
tion, the city would like to
obtain as many photographs
as possible of both the interior
and the exterior of the build-
ing.
Ms. Allen, whose office is in
city hall, will make copies
while you wait.
For more information, call
her at 534-0100, ext. 7401.

What started out as a sim-
ple, informal review of a
revised plan for a subdivision
on E.F. Griffin Road has been
postponed to next month, and
will be processed as a new
application.
At its Nov. 7 meeting, the
Bartow city commission passed
on first reading an ordinance
approving a 48-home subdivi-
sion on a 24.4-acre tract after
the developer, Duane
McQuillen, agreed to reduce
the number of homes by 10 and
to develop to a higher zoning
standard.
Commissioners rejected
McQuillen's earlier application
- which was opposed by the
zoning board to put 58
homes on the site and develop
to R-1-B standard, second high-
est density allowed by the city


code.
Through Atty. Tim Campbell,
McQuillen committed to 48
homes, and agreed to move two
notches up the zoning code to
R-1-2A. After passing that ordi-
nance on first reading, the com-
mission asked the zoning board
to review the new plan at its
Nov. 14 meeting and see if it
passed muster.
But at the start of the Nov.
14 meeting, Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers announced that
after consulting with City Atty.
George Dunlap and some zon-
ing board members, he had
decided to bring back the
revised plan as a new proposal
for the board's consideration.
The usual procedure for new
proposals is to hold a public
hearing when they come before
the zoning board for considera-


tion. Another public hearing is
required when the city commis-
sion considers an ordinance on
second (final) reading.
The zoning board's next
meeting will be on Monday,
Dec. 12.

'Growing Hibiscus in Florida' Topic

Of Fort Meade Garden Club Program


Tim Myers and Carl Ohirich
of Bay Gardens in Seffner were
the guest speakers at the Fort
Meade:. Garden Club's October
meeting, held at the Brown
House:.
This commercial grower, just
east of.Tampa, has a three-fold
operation: produce plugs (using
me.(h'anical seeders to fill huge
trays), produce finish material
(4" to 6" pots and hanging bas-
kets to sell to other retailers),
and sell retail to the public
themselves with emphasis on
better genetics, better blossom,
and better disease resistance.
The focus at Bay Gardens is
color geraniums, impatiens,
petunias, marigolds, roses, hibis-
cus, poinsettias, and the like.
Myers brought several plug
trays of hibiscus and three large
Mallow plants for members of
the club to share.
He explained that there are
three main types of hibiscus:
standard varieties, exotics, and
mallows.
Standard varieties grow best
in Florida if the addition of nitro-
gen is limited, the speakers said.
They need fertilizer high in
phosphorus. The addition of cal-
cium to the soil keeps hibiscus
from dropping their bloom. Ex-
otic varieties don't like full sun-
light or extreme heat, thus do
better in Florida in the spring
and fall.
Mallows are hardy hibiscus
with saucer-sized blooms. They
are easy to grow and grow very
fast. They bloom in Florida from
about April to October, dying
down in the winter and coming
back in the spring.
After the bloom begins to
fade, the petals can be removed
and a seed pod will form. These
seeds should be planted in the
spring.
All hibiscus can be started
with a hardwood cutting. This is
best done in the summertime us-
ing a rooting hormone, keeping
the pot in the shade and misting

City Officials Should Listen,

Even When They Don't Have To


There is a disturbing trend in
Bartow's city government toward limit-
ing public input into the decision-mak-
ing process.
We don't suggest that it is an inten-
tional effort. We believe that most city
government officials genuinely want to
hear and in most cases, respond to -
the wishes of the governed.
But with increasing frequency, if a for-
mal public hearing is not required on an
action of local government, members of
the public are being told they are not
allowed to speak.
It is a policy that is creating resent-
ment, and deservedly so.
The most recent instance occurred
Monday night, when Mayme Clark
attempted to express her concerns about
a 480-unit condominium development
adjoining Square Lake, one of Bartow's
most high end subdivisions. Mrs. Clark
and her husband, Richard, are develop-
ers of Square Lake, and clearly have a
great interest in what is built next to it.
The site development plan for the
condos was submitted to the zoning
board for its review and approval. It is
the only time the plan will come up for
public review. The zoning board won't
get it again. The city commission won't
review it.
Clearly, if there was to be any public
input to a policy-making board, this was
the only opportunity.
When Mrs. Clark asked to speak, she
was told the board's consideration of
the plan was not a public hearing.
"How can we control the final
design?" she asked.
She urged the zoning board to focus
on "quality, not quantity" in its role as
planners for the city.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers urged
the zoning board to go ahead and take a
vote, telling them: "I don't think you
can have a public hearing."
"I think we should consider changing
that," Zoning Board Member Bo
Raulerson responded. He is correct.
One week earlier, audience comment
was forbidden when the city commis-
sion voted on first reading on an ordi-
nance on a subdivision on E.F. Griffin
Road. Neighbors have been struggling,
with limited success, to encourage low
density development in what is
presently a rural area.
Citizens were told to wait until a pub-
lic hearing is required on second read-


ing.
Commissioner


Andy Laurent said


that refusing to hear public comment on
first reading of an ordinance "makes it
look like it's a done deal." He is correct.
"I get a little frustrated when we tell
people they can't speak at first reading,"
Commissioner Brian Hinton said. It is a
frustration shared by those who are
silenced.
It is one thing to require a public hear-
ing; it is something else to prohibit pub-
lic input when a public hearing is not
required.
The city code may not specifically
require their elected officials and
appointed advisory agencies to listen to
them at other than times required by the
city charter and code of ordinances.
But we find a suggestion of what
should be the policy of city -government
in these words:
"Congress shall make no law ...
abridging the freedom of speech ... or
of the right of people ... to petition the
Government for a redress of griev-
ances."
No, we don't suggest that Bartow's
policy arises to the level of a
Constitutional challenge.
But we do suggest that the. First
Amendment to the United States
Constitution establishes that it is public
policy to encourage citizen participation
in decisions of government.
On a less ethereal level, we would
offer one of the management principles
of this newspaper:
Nobody ever made a poorer decision
by having too much information.
Whether for reasons of observing
Constitutional intent ... or the logic of
learning as much as possible about an
issue ... or out of simple courtesy ...
city officials should always listen to the
public, even when they don't have to.

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

Well, It Looks Like a Flagpole


Some people look at the glass
and say it's half full; others say
it's half empty.
Me, I look at the glass and
say things like: "I wonder
what's really in the glass. And
why is it half-full or half-
empty? Did somebody start
drinking and decide they
weren't thirsty? Did the well
run dry before it was filled?"
So it is in that mode that I
have been musing about the ele-
mentary school in south Tampa
that wants to allow a cell phone
company to put up a 150-foot
cell phone tower on the school
grounds that is "disguised as a
flagpole." For this thoughtful-
ness, the school would get
$160,000 over five years.
Orange County once
declared a moratorium on cell
towers at schools, concerned
that they might cause cancer.
They lifted the moratorium a
few months later.
Let me tell you, Bo, kids at
the elementary school level are
not worried about getting can-
cer from something that looks
like a flagpole. Call it the inno-
cence of youth.
Kids that age are far more
concerned about getting
cooties, a generally undefined
affliction most often blamed on
hanging out with members of
the opposite gender.
Fortunately for the propagation
of the species, that fear passes


by adolescence.
At middle school, if you put
out a rumor that cell phone
towers that look like flagpoles
cause acne, you would have a
boycott on your hands.
At the. high school level, as
long as there's no concern that
cell phone towers that look like
flagpoles can cause you to lose
your driving privileges, you
won't have any problems.
Perhaps I should preface fur-
ther discussion by confessing
that when I was in elementary
school, my fondest wish was to
be elected to the Flag Detail.
The kids voted on who got to
raise and lower the flag every
day, and it was quite an honor.
Besides, it got you out of
class for five minutes at the start
of the day and five minutes at
the end; no wonder it was a
popular gig.
But politics was not my forte,
and I had to settle for School
Safety Patrol, which was a less
exclusive organization.
The point is, my interest in
school flagpoles goes back quite
a way.
So back to the subject at
hand.
I have heard of cell phone
towers in the mountains that
are disguised as trees; they're
the ones that don't lose their
leaves in the Winter. But with all
those spindly things sticking
out, they probably look a little


like a live oak that didn't get
watered when it was planted, if
you get my drift.
But how do you "disguise" a
cell phone tower to make it look
like a flagpole?
A flagpole is a big long piece
of metal with a pulley at the
top, a rope with a couple of
snap rings attached to the pul-
ley, and a cleat near the bottom
which you wrap the rope
around.
The other thing a flagpole
usually has is a flag flying from
it.
How many of those features
can you eliminate before the
disguise fails, .and people start
saying: "Look, it's a fake flag-
pole. There's no flag flying from
it. It must be one of those
$160,000 cell phone towers dis-
guised as a flagpole."
There is, of course, another
possibility, and that is to dis-
guise the cell phone tower by
putting a pulley at the top, a
rope with a couple of snap rings
over the pulley, a cleat near the
bottom, and a flag on the snap
rings. You've got to admit, it
would be a 'pretty compelling
disguise.
But here's the big question,
raised from the perspective of a
kid who couldn't get elected to
the Flag Detail at Bartow
Elementary School, back when
there weren't more than 15 or 20
stars on the flag.

Think about 150 feet.
The oversimplfied way of
imagining this is to use the
average of 10 feet per story for a
multi-story building. In Bartow,
that's tough to do, because I
think they made the stories at
the court house more than 10
feet high.
Consider the old Grand
Hotel building in Lake Wales,
or if you are old enough to
remember penny postcards, the
Skeleton Hotel in Fort Meade.
A 150-foot flagpole, if my
estimate is even close to correct,
would tower over either of
those buildings. To be seen from
the ground, Old Glory would
have to be one of your larger
pieces of cloth; a classroom flag
wouldn't make it.
And if they still have little
kids popular little kids -
raising flags at elementary
schools, how many of them do
you figure it would take, and
how long would it take them, to
run a flag the size of an afghan
150 feet up into the air on this
cell phone tower that is dis-
guised as a flagpole? And how
long to lower it in the after-
noon?
I'm thinking we're talking
about one, maybe two academic
credits for being on the Flag
Detail, just for the time
involved.
Now that would be a job
worth campaigning for.

The destruction caused by
Hurricane Wilma,has brought
into sharp focus the interdepend-
ence of farmers, consumers and
all those whose efforts make,
Florida's agricultural system
work.
In light of this, Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson says this year's ob-
servance of Farm-City Week,
Nov. 18-24, will be especially
meaningful.
"Every year, Farm-City Week
reminds us all rural and ur-
ban residents alike that we
live and work together in the
same environment and depend
on each other," Bronson said. "In
good times, that interdepend-
ence goes almost unnoticed by
many. But, following a disaster
when normal daily life is drasti-
cally disrupted, we're each re-
minded just how much we truly
value the contributions of oth-
ers."
Fall is normally a time of opti-
mism for Florida farmers as they
prepare to harvest their winter
crops to feed the nation;
Florida provides 80 percent of
the fresh vegetables grown in
the United States during Janu-
ary, February and Mdrch of each
year.
"Hurricane Wilma destroyed
many of Florida's premier winter
crops in the fields and damaged
much of South Florida's agricul-
tural infrastructure," Bronson
said. "As a result, many Florida
farmers will miss out on this cru-
cial winter market -_ and some
may not survive this economic
blow. In addition, consumers
may find some Florida fruits and
vegetables in limited supply."
Bronson said Florida's farm-
ers are once again demonstrat-
ing their resiliency in the wake
of disaster as they proceed with
rebuilding and replanting.

area. (Staff photo)


"Our state's farmers are work-
ing hard to get back on their feet
after this devastating blow,"
Bronson said. "Soon, grocery
shelves will once again feature
the many Florida products that
consumers depend on."
Farm-City Week. started by
the National' Farm-City Council
and promoted nationally by the
American Farm Bureau, is ob-
served the seven days leading up
to and including Thanksgiving.
Under the theme "Partners in
Progress," Farm-City Week sa-.
lutes all those who work as part
of the complex network that
brings food from the field to the
table. These "Partners in Pro-
gress" include farmers and
ranchers,. researchers, proces-
sors, brokers, truckers and ship-
pers, advertisers, wholesalers

Health organizations estimate
that 300,000 people in the
United States die each year from
obesity-related illnesses.
Obesity can lead to diseases
such as diabetes, high blood
pressure, and even some cancers.
Obesity rates have doubled
among children and tripled
among teenagers since 1980,
with unhealthy diet and lack of
exercise contributing to this epi-
demic.
According to the American
Diabetes Association, approxi-
mately 2.7 million (11.4 percent)
of all African-Americans ages 20
years or older have diabetes and


one-third of those afflicted do not
know it.
The most life-threatening con-
sequences of diabetes are heart
disease and stroke, which strike
people with diabetes more than
twice as often as those without
diabetes.
A healthy diet which includes
a variety of fresh fruits and
vegetables also helps lower the
risk for many chronic diseases.

This year, hunters using dogs
to pursue deer on private lands
in Florida must register for the
2005-06 hunting season.
This new state-wide, no-cost
registration program is manda-
tory during any open deer-hunt-
ing season when taking deer
with dogs is permitted. The rule
also applies during the deer-dog
training season, which has con-
cluded in most of the state.
The deer-dog hunting season
(general gun) on private lands
opened Oct. 29 in the South
Hunting Zone and runs through
Jan. 8. Farther up the state in
the Central Zone, the season
runs Nov. 12 through Jan. 22. In
the Northwest Hunting Zone, it
comes in Thanksgiving Day and
lasts four days until Nov. 27.
Two weeks later, the season re-
opens Dec. 10 and runs through
Feb. 15.
Hunting clubs, landowners or
anyone wishing to hunt deer
with dogs on a particular tract of
land can register by completing
an application, available from all
regional FWC offices and at
MyFWC.com/hunting. The appli-
cant may be the landowner or a
person representing a group
(hunting club) leasing the land
for hunting.
Proof of landowner permission
or a copy of the written lease
agreement must accompany the

application along with a general
map of the property showing
boundary lines and legal descrip-
tion.
After processing the applica-
tion, the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) will issue the applicant a
unique registration number, and
that number must be affixed to
the collars of all dogs used to
pursue deer on that registered
property.
Where a group or hunting
club is hunting the same tract of
land, one registration number
will be issued for all dogs used
on that property or hunting
lease.
Any individual engaged in
hunting or training deer dogs on
private lands must possess a
copy of their registration while
doing so and must not allow
their dogs off the registered
property, whether intentionally
or negligently.
This new rule does not apply
for hunting or training deer dogs
on public lands and wildlife
management areas.

to register for deer-dog hunting

Manatees Are Now On

The Move In Florida


Florida manatees are on the
move, seeking warmwater sites
to spend the winter.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) appealed to boaters today
to be especially cautious to look
out for manatees and be alert to
changing speed zones on water-
ways.
Manatees generally start
traveling to warm water when
the air temperature drops below
50 degrees or when the water
temperature dips to 68 degrees.
The FWC changes seasonal
speed zone signs on many water-
ways to accommodate manatee
migration.
The FWC said boaters should
scan the water near, and in front
of, their vessels for swirls resem-
bling large footprints, a repeti-
tive line of half-moon swirls, a
mud trail or manatee snouts or
tails breaking the surface.
Kipp Frohlich, leader of
FWC's Imperiled Species Man-
agement Section, said boaters
can help manatees have a safe
migration by:
Staying in marked chan-
nels,


Wearing polarized sun-
glasses to improve vision,
Abiding by posted boat
speed zones,
Using poles, paddles or
trolling motors when in close
proximity to manatees, and
Having someone aboard to
scan the water for signs of mana-
tees while their vessels are un-
der way.
"If you think you see a mana-
tee, give it plenty of room, be-
cause it may not be alone. It
may have a calf or be traveling
with other manatees," Frohlich
said.
For more information about
manatees, visit the website at
www.MyFWC.com.

Florida Trail Association

Hosts Big 0 Hike


The Florida Trail Association
will host the annual Big 0 Hike,
starting at Pahokee Marina on
Saturday, Nov. 19, at 8 a.m. and
continuing through Sunday,
Nov. 27.
Now in its 14th year, the an-
nual Big O Hike will have hikers
spend nine days enjoying the
views a nd wildlife around the
'?-e:ond largest freshwater lake
"entirely within the United
;,States.
Fourteen years ago, a hardy
group of Florida Trail Associa-
tion hikers started the tradition
of this 109-mile walk during
Thanksgiving Week.
Despite local damage from
Hurricane Wilma, the tradition
conrtinue-s with a kickoff at Pa-
hokee just prior to the beginning
of the Grassy Waters Festival,
which also v-ill go on as planned.


On the first day of the walk,
hikers have the option of a 3.5-
mile 'Wimp Walk" or a full 11.5
miles to Port Mayaca along the
Florida Trail on the Herbert
Hoover Dike, enjoying scenic
views of the Big Water and ex-
cellent birdwatching opportuni-
ties. Hikers will be shuttled back
to Pahokee that day.
Those continuing around
Lake Okeechobee on the nine-
day adventure will camp at the
KOA Okeechobee on Saturday,
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday
nights, moving base camp to
Okeechobee Landings in Clewis-
ton for the remainder of the
week.

ing a detailed itinerary, visit

hunters filled the streets of downtown Bartow.
The event was a success, even though the fair was moved from
Main Street to surrounding streets at the last minute, due to construc-
tion.

Musings From God's Penman


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
There is nothing more satis-
fying than a good session of wor-
rying.
Yes, I said worrying.
Nothing is more delectable
than getting into a good stew.
The reason worrying has re-
ceived such a bad rap is that too
many amateurs get involved.
Believe me, true worrying is
nothing to fool around with. It's
only for those who have achieved
some semblance of expertise. It
takes years of diligent practice to
arrive at a level of accomplish-
ment that few people reach.
Through the years, I have
found that my expertise in the
fine art of worrying has bene-
fited me. I must admit, I have
worried from time to time that I
did not have enough experience
for the really big things.
I know what some people say
about this. I have heard it all my
life.
They tell me that 90 percent
of what I worry about never hap-
pens. This has never upset me
because my worrying was re-
sponsible for that 90 percent not
happening.
I can hardly imagine what life
would have been like had I not
worried some of those things
away.
Then others will quote an old
proverb, "Worry is the interest
we pay on trouble before it is
due."
This was of interest to me. I
hate to procrastinate and like
getting a good 'start on things.
By worrying, I am ahead of the
game.

Unity Sing to Tommy Brandt Performing
Feature The Sunday at FM First Bantist


portunity I had, I visited a res-
taurant. I must say, my adrena-
line was high.
There is nothing like a new
adventure to get the old blood
dancing through the veins.
I was worried that, in my ex-
citement, I would miss some-
thing. It is a terrible thing to
start something new like this
and not know all of the rules. I
am a quick learner, but I was a
little worried that I would miss
something crucial at first.
I have eaten in restaurants all
of my adult life and that worried
me.
How much have I missed al-
ready?
I was so worried about this
that I could not order.
This worried me. How long
will this last? And will I ever be
able to eat in a restaurant
again? Do I really want to?
There is another side to all
this. I can keep on worrying, or I
can start practicing a life of
prayer.
The Bible tries to dispel my
worrying.
"Fret not thyself because of
evil men, neither be thou envi-
ous at the wicked," (Proverbs
24:19 KJV).
The Bible also encourages me
to develop a life of prayer.
"Be careful for nothing; but in
every thing by prayer and sup-
plication with thanksgiving let
your requests be made known
unto God." (Philippians 4:6
KJV).
I can either worry or trust. I
cannot do both.

Last week, a trial against the
school board in Dover, Pa., for
presenting intelligent design as
an alternative to evolution, fi-
nally ended.
Intelligent design is a growing
movement,- amng- scientists and
others, that offers an alternative
to evolution as the reason for our
existence.
Writing about the trial's con-
clusion, Melissa Nann Burke of
the Legal Intelligencer said:
'Like the deluge that floated
Noah's boat in the book of Gene-
sis, the trial of intelligent design
in Dover public schools ended af-
ter 40 days.
"It was .not by. design,"
quipped U.S. District Judge
John E. Jones, III.
Burke reports that 11 parents
of Dover students sued the Do-
ver Area School Board last year,
charging that it violated the es-
tablishment clause of the First
Amendment when ..it ..voted. to
present "inherently religious" in-
formation to'students.
But there"s a dimension to
this case that nobody seems to'
be talking about. If presenting
an alternate case for the origin
of all things is "inherently relig-
ious," it follows logically that

tion.
What we accept as the origin
or source of life affects how we
think, live, and worship. Evolu-
tion has ruled the roost with
leading educators for a long
time, but now some are having
sec6hd thoughts about this.
And with good reason.
In 1997, two scientists, John
Ralston and Borge Nodlund,
from the University of Kansas
and the University of Rochester,
respectively, reported they had
found an axis of the universe.
'As a result of their discovery,
astrophysicist Greg Benford of
the University of California at.
Irvinie was quoted in the Detroit.
Free Press as saying the exis-,
tence of this axis could mean
that creation was far more com-
plex than was originally
thought, that' "there was almost
a blueprint for it."
Haven't we heard this before?
In church, maybe?
SA .blueprint calls for an archi-
tect -. in this case, an eternal

only .planned, bui preceded Hi
creationn:
While visiting a gift shop, I
heard a college-age customer
talking to a clerk and expressing
his opinions loud enough for all.
to hear. Listening with interest,
I discovered the research of this
student of beginnings had .led


him to theories that, in his opin-
ion, didn't make sense: too many
gaps; too many unanswered
questions.
He had concluded that believ-
ing them required embracing
ideas that: stay in a constant
state -of change: After consider-
ing his options, he had decided
to accept the Biblical account of
creation.
Leaving the origin of the
earth to chance was too much for
this truth seeker too risky; too
unreasonable. He was unwilling
to build his life on guesses, even
educated ones.
Faith' in God, on the other
hand, based on the Scriptures,.
offered rock-solid security, some-
thing that had eluded him in all
other areas of his research.
Accepting the Master Archi-
tect as the designer of the uni-
verse who loves us and offers re-
demption to those who believe
requires faith.
But this unnamed shopper,
said he had concluded believing
the theory of evolution required
more faith too much for him'
to muster. He had seen convinc-
ing evidence of the 'existence of
the Creator in His creation, and
this allowed him to respond in
faith to both natural and Biblical
truth.

Beer Can Chicken
One of the juiciest and most
:flhorful ways to grill a whole
chicken. Brining seasons the
meat down to the bone and the
beer keeps it moist while on the
grill. A must try!
1 (3.5-4-lb.) whole chicken
1/2 cup kosher salt
1-1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon freshly ground
black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 ,.. teaspoon crushed dried
oregarno
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 can (12-oz.) beer
: Remove giblets from cavity of
chicken. Rinse with cool water
inside and out. Fill a large bowl
with water. Add salt and stir
until dissolved. Place chicken in
water (should be fully sub-
merged) and refrigerate for 1
hour.


Combine chili powder, cumin,
pepper, cinnamon, oregano and
allspice in a small bowl.
Preheat grill to medium high.
If using charcoal, use about 50 to
60 briquettes. Once they're ashed
over, divide in half and move to
the sides.
Remove chicken from brine
and rinse with cool water. Pat
dry with paper towels. Rub spice
mixture thoroughly over chicken,
inside cavity and carefully under
the skin over the breasts. Open
beer and pour out about 1/3 of the
beer. Place beer can on a pan and
set chicken directly on top, using
the legs to balance. Carefully
transfer chicken and beer can to
prepared grill.
Cover, leaving vent slightly
open. Cook until internal temper-
ature reaches 175F, 65 to 90
minutes. Rotate once halfway
through.
Carefully remove chicken from
grill. Discard beer and can. Let
rest for 10 minutes before serv-
ing.

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 Division has deter-
mined that modification of the
elevations of the;lood 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 hydrologic 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 and Whitten Road, 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

take with respect to the agen-
cy's ,proposed action.

is based shall state that no
such facts are in dispute and
otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth
above, as required by Rule 28-
106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action,

become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the

of the expiration of the Admin-
istrator's 45 (forty-five) day
review period as established at
42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1),
to object to issuance of any
permit. Any petition shall be
based only on objections to the
permit that were raised with
.reasonable specificity during
the 30 (thirty) day public com-
ment period provided in this
notice, unless the petitioner
demonstrates to the Adminis-
trator of the EPA that it was

impracticable to raise such ob-
jections within the comment
period or unless the grounds
for such objection arose after
the comment period. Filing of a
petition with the Administrator
of the EPA does not stay the
effective date of any permit
properly issued pursuant to the
provisions of Chapter 62-213,
F.A.C. Petitions filed with the
Administrator of EPA must
meet the requirements of 42
U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2)
