Public Hearing Set

Tonight On Gandy

Road Subdivision


LIGHTING AND WEATHER couldn't have been better for Saturday night's official dedication program, pedestrians strolled Main Street, visited shops, and chatted with
lighting of Magic on Main. More than 100 trees lining the street lit up with the ceremo- friends while sitting on new benches. More photos in Thursday's issue. (Staff photo

A public hearing .will be held
tonight on one controversial zon-
ing ordinance, but the city staff
has recommended that final
action be postponed on another
one.
A hearing, required on second
(final) reading of any ordinance,
will be held on an ordinance zon-
ing a recently-annexed 16.7-acre
parcel of land on Gandy Road as
R-1-B, the city's second highest
density for single-family homes.
The developer proposes to build
41 homes in the development,
Winding River Cove.
Commissioners voted two
weeks ago to pass the ordinance
on first reading, but said they
wanted to see the number of pro-
posed homes reduced when the
proposal came back for final
action. The proposal submitted in
the commission's agenda still
reflects the 41 homesites.
The city staff has recommend-
ed postponing action on a 24.4-
acre subdivision on E.F. Griffin
Road. Two weeks ago, commis-
sioners rejected R-1-B zoning on
that parcel, as recommended by
the zoning board, but passed an
ordinance raising the zoning by
two notches to R-1-2A, as pro-
posed by the developer.
Commissioners asked the zon-
ing board to take a look at the R-
1-2A proposal at the board's
meeting last week, but Planning
Dir. Robert Wiegers said the pro-
posal would be advertised for a

County Endorses

'Red Light' Cameras


Polk County commissioners
would like to see a state law
authorizing the use of "rod light
cameras" to assess fines against
motorists wito run red lights.
Commissioner Sam Johnson
proposed that the commission go
on record supporting "red light
cameras," which take photos of
the license tags of vehicles which
run red lights.
"Getting somewhere a minute
or two earlier is not worth the life
or limb of another person (r your-
self," he said.
County Atty. Joseph Jarret


said he knows of no
Constitutional challenges to the
use of the cameras, which have a
record of recording a large num-
ber of violators when they are
used.
The county's action supports
proposed state legislation to
approve the use of the cameras
statewide.
Commissioner Paul Senft said
a recent change in state law sets
the fine for running red lights at
$181.
The motion passed by unani-
mIlous vote.

Know Your Turkey Trivia


Metro Editorial Service
Think you know everything
about that tasty bird called the
turkey?
Test your trivia and wow
guests with these turkey tidbits,
courtesy of the. National Turkey
Federation.
1. Benjamin Franklin pro-
posed the turkey as the official
American bird, but the bald ea-
gle was chosen instead.
2. The top five most popular
ways to serve leftover Thanks-
giving turkey are sandwich, soup
or stew, casserole, stir-fry, and
salad.
3. Ninety-five percent of
Americans surveyed by the Na-
tional Turkey Federation eat
turkey at Thanksgiving. The av-
erage weight of turkeys pur-
chased for Thanksgiving is 15
pounds. That means about 690
million pounds of turkey were
consumed in the United States
during Thanksgiving in 2002.
4. In 2002, about 271 million
turkeys were raised. It's esti-
mated that 46 million of those
turkeys were eaten at Thanks-
giving, 22 million at Christmas
and 19 million at Easter.
5. The white versus dark
meat war rages on. White meat
is preferred in the United States,
while other countries favor dark
meat. A turkey usually has
about 70 percent white meat and
30 percent dark meat. White
meat has fewer calories and less
fat than dark meat.

countries that consumed the
most turkey in 2001 were Israel,
the United States, France, Italy,
Germany, the United Kingdom,
and Canada.
7. Turkey isn't just for the
holidays. Nearly half of U.S. con-
sumers eat turkey at least once
every two weeks, with more than
a quarter eating turkey lunch
meat.
8. Your furry friends are in on
turkey, too. The turkey industry
distributes 13 percent of its pro-
duction to pet food.
9. Gobble gobble but not for
all turkeys. Only tom turkeys
gobble, while hen turkeys make
a clicking noise.

win Aldrin's first meal on the

mings.

me playing quarterback," he
said.
Strong discipline is key, he
said, and "adversity is the one
thing you can count on use it
to strengthen yourself."
Selmon said that community
is also important, and that he
was glad to be able to work in
the Bartow area again.
At the end of his speech, he
answered questions from the
audience most of which were
about.his football career. When
asked, about the situation sur-
rounding Terrell Owens, he said
that he could understand the po-
sition of both sides, but that he
did not want to make any judg-
ment because those involved
were the only ones who knew
enough about the situation to do
so.
Selmon's wife, Claybra Sel-
mon, was also in attendance at
the luncheon.

'Paper Clips' Movie To Be Shown


Holocaust, Memorial. Resource
and Education Center of Florida,.
851 North Maitland Avenue,
Maitland, will begin its annual
film series with a free screening
of "Paper Clips" on Monday, Dec.
5, atP7.im. *

The movie tells the story of
WhitwelL .Tenn.. a town where
the. population peaks at about
2.000.people and where the word
'skyline" is epitomized by the
breathtaking -iews .f ,the rustic.
Smokv Mountains. .
In 1998, a classroom project
began .at Whitwell Middle
School. Assistant principal, his-
tory teacher and footbdill coach.
David' Smith suggested to the
principal. Linda Hooper, that *
they uise the Holocaust as a basis
for a program on tolerance.
The idea to collect paper clips


was born when a student asked,
"What is six million?. I've never
seen that before."'
The students discovered that
citizens of Norway, where paper,
clips were invented, wore them
on their lapels as a sign of patri-
otism and resistance against
German tyranny during, World
War II.
.["Paper Clips" is the 'story of
these students and. their emo-
tional journey as they begin to
'learn about the' horrors and
tragedies' of the Holocaust.'
'Despite the fact that they had
previously been unfamiliar with
the Holocaust, their dedication
was absolute. With a promise to
honor and memorialize every
lost soul, .the students decided to
collect one paper clip' for each in-
dividual murdered by the Ger-


mans during the Holocaust. .
By the end of the project, the
students not .-only collected 11.
million paper clips (representing
six million Jews and five million
gypsies, homosexuals and other
victims of the Holocaust), .but
were able to house them in a do-
nated WWII rail car,. so they
would always have a permanent.
tribute to the millions who were
-lost and.a permanent memory of
the .time their small school in.
Tennessee changed, the world

Mrs. Whitson arranged for
high school students to speak to
and encourage local elementary
school children to collect unused
eyeglasses along with or instead

In some South American

would be more than several
months' wages even if doctors
or trained technicians were

The glasses are then placed in a

75th Anniversary Nuggets

The Polk County Democrat
Not long after nine-year-old Loyal Frisbie began
publishing the Neighborhood News in Tampa,
typing each copy on a portable typewriter, his
father, Lloyd Frisbie, bought him a small hand-operated
press and some handset type. The first advertisement was
sold to a stamp dealer, who paid 50 cents for a half-page.
(The newspaper was printed on letter-size paper.) Loyal
started charging a penny a copy for the newspaper, and
added two members to his three-member staff: a fiction
writer to write a serialized story and a society editor to
cover neighborhood parties and visitors. The biggest story
covered by the Neighborhood News was a head-on street-
car crash on Bayshore Boulevard near the Frisbie home.
After six or eight months, the Neighborhood News ceased
publication, and was replaced by The Little Magazine, a
monthly which featured fiction stories and features. It last-
ed about a year. S. L. Frisbie, IV



Auto Repair Scholarships

Now Available From State


A new program has begun to
assist employees of auto repair
shops with additional training in
an effort to enhance customer
service at the state's more than
20,000 repair shops.
Florida's Motor Vehicle Re-
pair-Education Assistance Pro-
gram will provide scholarships
for mechanics to attend technical
training or other courses related
to auto repair.
Letters informing repair shop
owners about the program have
been sent to every registered
auto repair shop in Florida.
The law creating the assis-
tance program was passed in
1.993 but there was no available
funding until the 2005 legisla-
tive session. As part of a legisla-
tive budget request in 2005, law-
makers .appropriated $100,000 to
be used on a first-come-first-
served basis.
The funds may only be used to
pay the cost of technical training
and cannot be used to cover
travel costs or other expenses.
The funding comes from regis-
tration fees paid by the motor ve-
hicle repair industry.
Motor vehicle repair shops
must apply to be eligible for the
program. Educational assis-
tance funding is limited to
$1,000 per registered location
per year, or a maximum of
$3,000 to a shop owner with
multiple locations.
Shops also must provide proof


that training has been com-
pleted.
The training facility also must
meet the requirements spelled
out in the law.

the program, visit the Division of

Downtown Bartow Embarks


On a New Beginning


There are two phrases that are so burned
into the American psyche that their words
are generally considered to be synony-
mous:
"Bigger and better," and "new and
improved."
The redesign of Bartow's Main Street,
which was' dedicated during an all-day
street festival on Saturday, shows that
"bigger" is not always "better," and that
"new" is not always "improved."
Historically, wider streets have been
equated with progress, and in many cases,
it is a valid judgment.
The new look of Main Street defies that
conventional wisdom.
Years in the planning and months in the
execution, the redesign of Main Street
made the street narrower and the side-
walks wider. State Road 60 was rerouted
onto Van Fleet Drive. The objective was
not to speed traffic through the. heart of
downtown, but to slow it down.
In the process, the downtown business
district was made more friendly to pedes-
trians, and more adaptable to street festi-
vals like Bloomin' Arts, the Fall Crafts Fair,
the monthly Festival Friday events, and
Saturday's Magic on Main.
For many downtown merchants, it was
an uncomfortable plan. Increased traffic is
generally equated with increased patron-
age. And for motels, convenience. stores,
and fast food restaurants, that undoubted-
ly is true.
But how many motorists many of
them truckers headed from the Gulf
Coast to the Atlantic Coast drive through
Bartow and are struck with a sudden
impulse to stop and shop for an antique
armoire, or buy a Book of Common Prayer,
or pawn a set of golf clubs? Probably not
many.
In a series of charettes conducted by the
Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council,
the concept of narrower, tree-lined streets
with sidewalks wide enough for casual
strolling was developed. There was sub-
stantial community input, which equated
to community buy-in.
Public hearings led to further revisions
to address concerns of downtown mer-
chants and property owners.
With Bartow's Community
Redevelopment Agency as the prime
mover, the plan took shape.
Construction began this Spring, and
work is nearing completion. It hasn't been
easy.
"Experience" is sometimes defined as
what you get when things don't go exact-


ly as you had planned. There have been a
series of "experiences" in the Main Street
redesign project.
The first was a catastrophic fire that
destroyed the one-time Tate-Phillips
Hardware and Ritz Theater buildings.
Though it had little impact on the progress
of construction, it resulted in the complete
closure of Main Street to vehicular traffic.
Merchants already dealing with reduced
patronage caused by street and sidewalk
work were hit with a further reduction in
customers.
The approach of a hurricane brought
back unpleasant memories of last year's
three-storm disaster, and prompted a halt
in work.
Cracks in the old Philip's Department
Store building raised concerns that the
building might sustain further damage
from milling of the pavement in the 300
block of East Main Street.
And when dozens of live oaks and shu-
mard oaks were planted, they weren't
watered in, and most of them died.
But the Main Street project continued,
and the results even though still a little
short of completion are impressive.
The more than 100,000 Christmas-style
lights installed in trees and along rooflines
by the CRA add a particularly festive look.
David Nelson Construction, the engi-
neering firm of Post, Buckley, Schuh and
Jernigan, and the Glatting JaxkLoinI land-
scape architect firm have indeed created
"Magic on Main."
Main Street has become a pedestrian-
friendly street of yesteryear, recapturing
the charm and ambiance once common in
Southern towns, but now found only in
those few .communities that believe that
"bigger" is not always "better," that "new"
is not always "improved."
It is a street that embraces pedestrians in
a community that embraces tradition.
It represents the beginning of an exciting
new era for downtown Bartow.

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

Why Was No Closing Argument Made?


In all the criminal trials I
have covered, and in the far
greater number that I have fol-
lowed with interest, I have
never before heard of a defense
attorney failing to give a closing
argument.
It is not unusual for the
defense not to put the defen-
dant on the witness stand, or
even to call no witnesses, limit-
ing the active defense effort to
cross-examining prosecution
witnesses.
But in the Carlie Brucia mur-
der case in Tampa last week, the
public defender representing
Joseph P. Smith made no closing
argument to the jury. He said he
had raised every defense issue
in cross-examination of prose-
cution witnesses.
Between bites of chili at the
Toys for Tots chili competition
Saturday afternoon, I asked my
fellow chili judges what they
made of that tactic. Among
them were one sheriff, one
police chief, several lawyers, a
city manager, and a couple of
city commissioners..


While not everyone offered a
theory, two points were raised:
(1) The defendant was obvi-
ously guilty; photos of the
abduction, DNA evidence, and
a jailhouse confession all fin-
gered Smith as the killer. So, the
reasoning goes, by not trying to
convince the jury that his client
was innocent, the lawyer main-
tained his credibility with the
jury for the upcoming sentenc-
ing phase of the trial.
I find some plausibility in
that theory; it always seems a
little incongruous that a lawyer
who yesterday was trying to
convince a jury that his client
was innocent argues today for
mercy in his punishment, no
longer advancing the theory of
innocence. But that is the way
the system works, and I don't
have a better idea.
(2) The unusual tactic of not
using a closing statement to try
to persuade the jury. that suffi-
cient reasonable doubt exists
raises the possibility of an'
appeal based on "incompetent
defense."


I cannot believe that any rep-
utable attorney would inten-
tionally expose; his. reputation to
the an "incompetent defense"
appeal, *and I do not suggest
that was the case in the trial of
Smith. .
But I've got to believe that if
Smith is sentenced to death
(and if this isn't a death penalty
case, Florida really doesn't need
to have a death penalty), that
ground is bound to be raised on
appeal.
*Holw .'many prominent
defense lawyers would 'testify
that never in their careers had
they failed to make a closing
argument to the jury in a capital
case? I've got to believe the
number would be large.:'
Anyone who follows "incom-
petent defense" appeals knows
that far flimsier arguments have
been made.

A side issue: I also have
heard the question raised: Why
did it take the jury five hours to
reach a verdict in; a case in
which the evidence was "so

Congratulations on 10 years of

In addition, I usually take my

OUR READERS SAY



BARTOW -The Christmas
season. Such a joyous time of
year. Why? Because Christ is the
reason for the season. And it's
time to tell the story once again.
Only this time, we want to make
sure there is no misunderstand-
ing on why Jesus came, and how
He came into the world. To do
that we must, go back to the
beginning.
Adam and Eve were created
by God and placed in a perfect
environment, the Garden of
Eden.' They were provided with
everything to occupy their time,
and to sustain, satisfy and fulfill
their every need. Best of all, their
Creator could commune with
them. Being made in His image,
man possessed a mind that could
think God's thoughts after Him, a
heart that could respond to God's
love, and a will that could do
God's bidding. Man possessed
intellectual, and emotional capa-
bilities, with the ability to choose:
free will, or to be more accurate,
take human responsibility.
In that environment, in the
midst of the garden, God placed a


father so he can keep up with
what's really going on in the
county.
I had to laugh when I read'
this month's "Memo From
The Times" (reprinted in
"Thinking Out Loud") about
Mary's reaction to your deci-
sion to start this newspaper. I


recalled my own first impres-
sion when you came over to
see us about distributing, the
paper to county employees.
At the time .I: thought this
isn't going to fly, how will he
ever pay for it? Obviously, I
didn't see the big picture of
reaching 10,000 households


with news that mostly affected
them. What a great idea you
had and what a success it's
been.
Best wishes for may more
years of sharing the times,

JIM RODEN, JR.
deputy County Manager


A Christmas Homily


tree (among many others) and
forbade Adam and Eve from par-
taking of it. Since man was creat-
ed with the capability of choice,
God created an environment
where man could choose. What.
God was saying to them was:
"Adam and Eve, understand
with your mind. Don't eat. Love
me with all your heart. Don't eat.
Obey me with your will. Don't
eat."
Whether God knew what tley
would do or not is not the issue.
They were created in the image
and likeness of God with the abil-
ity to choose; therefore, an envi-
ronment which offered the
opportunity to choose was
required.
Tempted by the Devil, Adam
and Eve thought with their mind,
felt with their heart, and with
their own free will chose to eat of
the forbidden tree. They dis-
obeyed God, and as a result
brought sin as an operating prin-
cipal into the world, and in time,
bore children in their own image,
which was now "fallen" i.e. in a
sinful condition.


In the physical realm, bodily
diseases, deformities, and weak-
nesses are inherited. So, too, 'in
the spiritual realm the sin nature
is inherited. Adam' nd Eve were
the official representatives of all.
future humanity. What they did
in the Garden of Eden,. all men
did in them because' all of
mankind was 'in their seed.
Apostle Paul wrote in Romans
5:12: "Wherefore, as by one man
(Adam) sin entered into the
World, and death by sin; death
passed upon all men, for all have
sinned. This is why Jesus said,
"You must be born again." John
3:7.
God created man to know
bliss, the fulfillment of all his
needs, and to have a loving rela-
tionship with him: for -endless
days. Sin created a : chasm
between main and God. So God,
in His love and compassion. for
man, provided a solutiofito satis-,
fy the infinite demands of divine
holiness, justice and truth. Into
the world, in the fullness of time,
God sent His only begotten Son,
and Jesus was born in Bethlehem.


His conception was spoken.
That's why he is called the word
of God, because He is. Because
Jesus was virgin born, and the
Son of God, He was not heir to
,the sin condition that gave to
every son of Adam's race a sin
nature, which in turn manifested
itself in sinful deeds.
Jesus is pure, undefiled, and
holy. In the perfect plan of His
.Father, He moved unerringly
towards Calvary to "taste death
for every man," (Heb. 2:9). To die
"the just for the unjust, that He
might bring us to God." (I Peter
3:18). Jesus became sin for us, He
"who knew no sin that we might
be made the righteousness of
God in Him." (2 Cor. 5:21)
For this reason Jesus came into
the world, and for this reason we
have a Christmas season and can
truthfully say, "Jesus is the reason
for the season," and shout,
"Merry Christmas, God bless
you!"
My soul does magnify the
Lord!

incontrovertible?
It suggests to me that the jury
was extremely conscientious in
looking for any reasonable
doubt. Especially in a death
penalty case, that is a com-
mendable attitude.
I remember many years ago
an appeal being brought on the
basis that the jury returned its
verdict in a matter of only a few
minutes. The defense argued
that the jury couldn't have done
a conscientious job of weighing
the evidence in such a short
amount of time. (I don't recall
the outcome of the appeal.)

These three predictions:
(1) The jury will recommend,
by a substantial margin, imposi-
tion of the death penalty.
(2) The judge will impose it.
(3) The Office of Collateral
Counsel, which is charged by
law with filing an appeal of
every death sentence, will raise
the issue of "incompetent
defense" based on the defense
attorney's decision to make no
closing argument.

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
the Housing and Urban Devel-
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 bu.idiigs 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

period, please be advised that you
may wish to remove all personal
property and site improvements
from the subject property. The
cost of the demolition and re-
moval of debris shall be as-
sessed against the property

against the real property. If not
satisfied, the lien may be fore-
closed after a period of two
years in the manner provided in

be enlarged by the Demolition
Coordinator in writing for good
cause shown. In order to re-


ceive an extension of time, you

moval of all signs of human habi-
tation. This includes debris, trash (

CHANGES ARE MADE IN
DETERMINATIONS OF
BASE FLOOD ELEVA-
TIONS FOR 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 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-
optnent Act of 1968, Public
Law 90-448), 42 U.S.C. 4001
4218, and 44'CFR Part 65.
A hydrologic and hydraulic
analysis was performed to in-
corporate one ponding area ap-
proximately 2,000 feet south-
east of the intersection of


Crews Lake Drive and Crews
Lake Road and has resulted in a
decrease in SFHA width and es-
tablishment of BFEs for this
ponding area. The table below
indicates existing and modified
BFEs for selected locations
along the affected lengths of
the flooding sources) cited
above.
Location: Crews Lake Pond-
ing Area: Approximately 1,400
feet southeast of the intersec-
tion of Crews Lake Road and
Crews Lake Drive
Existing BFE (feet)*: None
Modified BFE (feet)*: 121
*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:

Research A Charity Before Giving Holiday Donations


o0 ts




ws


Consumers should check out
charitable organizations before
making any donations, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Serv-
ices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said.
The holiday season is one of
the busiest for charities, with
many collecting about half their
annual donations between
Thanksgiving and New Year's
.,\ Day.
"We have a record number of
charities registered with the de-
partment and the onslaught of
requests can be -confusing for
many. people trying to decide
where their money should go,"


Bronson said. "But consumers
need to take the time to research
a charity to ensure it is legiti-
mate and that their donations
are being spent as they intend."
Florida law requires charities
to register with the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and provide
financial information about in-
come and expenditures.
As of Nov. 1, 2004, there were
an estimated 10,483 charities
registered with the department.
This represents an increase of
around 700 from last year.
Consumers should always
make sure.a charity is registered


before donating and check how a
charity spends its money.
Here are some other tips for
consumers:
Don't judge an organization
based on an impressive sounding
name. Find out what it actually
does.
Be wary of emotional ap-
peals and organizations that
have only vague plans for spend-
ing the funds they collect.
Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an organi-
zation not an individual.
Be wary of organizations
that offer to send a "runner" to


pick up your donation. Reputa-
ble charities are willing to wait
for contributions.
Consumers have the right to
ask for an organization's finan-
cial report and its federal tax
identification number, the latter
of which you will need to claim
your contribution as a tax deduc-
tion.
Ask the organization to
send you written information
about its activities.
