Commission Rejects


Zoning When Developer


Refuses To Cut Density


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

On Nov. 7, Bartow city com-
missioners passed on first read-
ing an ordinance approving a 41-
home subdivision on Gandy Road,
but a majority told the developer
they wanted to see a reduction in
density before they gave final
approval.
The developer came back on
Monday with a reconfigured site
plan that kept 41 lots, and after a
lengthy public hearing, commis-
sioners voted 3-to-2 to defeat the
ordinance.
They heeded the opposition of
neighbors, who urged that the
development be reduced to a den-
sity of two homes per acre: 33
Homes.
Neighbors also expressed con-
-cern that Gandy Road is too nar-
row to handle existing traffic, let
alone traffic from another 41
homes.
At issue was an ordinance
assigning R-1-B zoning the
city's second highest density for
single-family homes to a 16.7-
acre development, Winding River
Cove; a 'proposed subdivision
between Peace River Estates
Units 1 and 2.
"I still have a problem with
this," Commissioner Rosie
Thornburg said when the ordi-
nance came up for final passage.

Two Homes Per Acre
She said the density should be
reduced to two houses per acre.-
She said she was concerned about
the fact that the homes would
have septic tanks, and that
Gandy Road already is inade-
quate.
Commissioner Andy Laurent
said Winding River Cove is com-
patible with homes at one end but
not at the other, and is not com-
patible with homes across the


road.
Commissioner Brian Hinton
said that the R-1-B zoning would
allow more than the 41 homes
that Bill Fritze, the developer's
consultant, proposed.
"It's not good for the neighbor-
hood," he said, suggesting that
the parcel be zoned Rural Estate
2, which permits two homes per
acre.
Mayor Leo Longworth, who
cast one of the two votes to
approve the development, said
that the city's planning director
found that it is consistent with
the city's comprehensive plan and
compatible with the surrounding
area.
Fritze told the commission
that he revised the plan for the
subdivision to put larger lots on
the outer edge, next to the Peace
River Estates developments, and
small lots on the interior. He also
proposed 10-foot landscaped
buffers at the east and west ends
of the development.

DCA Approved Six Units
He said the Florida Dept. of
Community Affairs approved a
density of up to six units per acre,
which the city's comprehensive
plan defines as "low density resi-
dential."
Regarding the septic tanks,
Fritze said: "We're going to be
very, very careful." The county
health department would allow
up to 49 septic tanks on the site,
he added.
Pat Crisman, a former city
commissioner, said that lower
density housing raises the cost of
service for the city. She said the
Sierra Club recommends at least
three units per acre.
She said that putting homes
next to other homes is compati-
ble.
"I see 41 septic tanks," Gerald
Cochran told the commission. He


said they pose a threat to private
wells in the area, and could cont-
aminate the Peace River.
Jim Burby, past president of
the Peace River Estates
Homeowners Assn., said that
putting 41 homes on the property
would make the housing 28 per-
cent more dense than in Peace
River Estates. Fritze's plan would
have three-and-a-half lots abut-
ting his two lots, he said.

Road Is Substandard
John Howle, current president
of the homeowners association,
said that the Florida Dept. of
Transportation's standard for col-
lector roads is 12-foot wide lanes,
with an exception allowing 11-
foot lanes for low volume roads.
The total width for both lanes
of Gandy Road is only 17 feet, he
said.
FDOT standards also call for a
10-foot "clear recovery zone" adja-
cent to the paving for vehicles
that leave the road.
The clear zone next to Gandy
Road is less than five feet, and in
some cases, utility poles are at
the road's edge, he said.
A hill on Gandy Road reduces
visibility for motorists, Howle
added.
Kay Blocker, whose home
across the road from the proposed
development is on a six-acre par-
cel, said the commission's deci-
sion on Winding River Cove "will
set the standard out there" for
future developments in the area.
She also said the city should
provide better notification of
pending developments to neigh-
boring property owners.

.In a rare but not unprecedent-
ed move, Polk County commis-
sioners on Tuesday re-elected
their chairman and vice chair-
man, rather than rotating the
leadership positions.
At the start of the meeting,
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson
nominated Commissioner Paul
Senft, who has been vice chair-
man for the past year and was in
line for the chairmanship, to be
chairman.
But Senft suggested that the
commission keep its same leader-
ship: Jack Myers as chairman
and himself as vice chairman.
"Mr. Chairman, I just feel like
we ought to keep the same team
in place," Senft said.
Myers responded by saying he
would "follow the. wishes of the
board," but reminded Senft that
he was in line for the job.
Wilkinson withdrew his nomi-
nation of Senft, and Senft nomi-
nated Myers. The motion passed.


unanimously.
"I don't think it can be as bad
as last year," Myers quipped.
Myers asked for a motion to re-
elect Senft as vice chairman.
Wilkinson then nominated
Senft, and that vote also was
unanimous. That action leaves
Senft in rotation to be elected
chairman next year.
Senft gave no reason for rec-
ommending that there be no
change in leadership, beyond
telling Myers in jest: "We thought
if you did it a few more times, you
could get it right."
Senft noted that the county
manager had a plaque recogniz-
ing Myers for his year as chair-
man, but suggested that the
plaque be kept until next year as
a money-saving move.
Although the chairmanship
traditionally is rotated each year,
there have been exceptions.
A number of years ago, Dan
Costello was elected for a second

consecutive term. When Marlene
Young nominated him, she said
the commission was in the midst
of several major projects, and rec-
ommended no change in leader-
ship.
Wilkinson was passed over
twice when it was his turn to
rotate from vice chairman to
chairman, but was elected chair-
man in 2002.

What the department per-
ceives as a lack of priorities,

Guardian ad Litem 'Home for
The Holidays' Event Held


Bonefish Grill of Lakeland do-
nated lunch to approximately
150 people who attended the
10th Judicial Circuit Court's
Guardian ad Litem "Home for
the Holidays" program held Nov.
15.
Jack Levine, a child advocate,
spoke to volunteers for the pro-
gram, as well as legislators,
judges, and other local elected of-
ficials about the importance of
the Guardian ad Litem program
for abused and neglected chil-
dren in the court system.


"Home for the Holidays" is a
statewide public awareness
event to educate and inform
communities and public officials
about the need for every abused,
abandoned, and neglected child
to have a voice in court.
There are currently more
than 3,000 such children in Polk,
Hardee, and Highlands counties.
Many do not have a guardian
due to a lack of volunteers.

most scientists that the ivory-
billed woodpecker was extinct.
On one of their trips through
the south to check a recent sight-
ing by an Arkansas kayaker, an
unmistakable ivory-bill flew past
at close range in front of their
canoe. For the first time since
1944, two qualified observers
had positively identified an
ivory-billed woodpecker in the
United States.
This sighting quickly led to
the largest-ever search to find a
rare bird, and ultimately to the
announcement this past April of
the rediscovery of the species.
Harrison has been an avid
bird watcher and student of the
ivory-billed woodpecker since
1973. He began searching for
ivory-bills in 1995 in Florida and
also has searched in Georgia and


most vehicles.
Check the owner's manual.
to see if your driving habits are
considered "severe," and if so,
have the oil changed accordingly,
usually every 3,000 miles; con-
sider changing to a "winter
weight: oil if you live in a cold
climate.
Check the battery and ex-
haust system.
Be certain the heater and
defroster are working properly..
Keep the gas tank at least
half full, decreasing the chances
of moisture forming in the gas
lines and possibly freezing.
Check tire tread depth and
tread pressure; consider special
tires if snow and ice are,a prob-.
lem in your area.
Check to see that lights
work 'and headlights are prop-
erly aimed.
Replace wiper blades every
six months: consider special
snow blades if the weather dic-
tates.
Be prepared for-an emer-
gency with the following items in
your trunk: ice scraper, wind-

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

Giving Thanks: The List Grows Longer


Editorial





l~S


Thanksgiving Reflections


Unless You Are a Turkey.


(These reflections on Thanksgiving were
written in the early 1960s by Loyal Frisbie in
his column, Off My Chest, and were reprinted
in his column each year on Thanksgiving Day.
He died on Dec. 5, 2004, at the age of 89, but
his inspirational message is timeless, and we
are republishing it as today's editorial.)

Unless you are a turkey you have much
to be thankful for at this.Thanksgiving sea-
son.
If you are reading these, lines, you have
eyes to see with, and an education to read
with.
If you are having these lines read to you,
you have ears to hear with and a mind to
think with.
The past year may have been a sad one
for you. There may be deep troubles on the
horizon ahead. Still, there should be much
room in your heart for thankfulness.
If you lost a loved one in the past year,
you know that they are now past pain and
sorrow .and that God has so arranged
the Universe that your own grief at the loss
is less as the days roll by..
If dark death sits at your door waiting
for a critical illness to take its toll in your
household, you do have the loved one
with you for yet awhile.
Money matters may be causing you con-
cern .
If you could afford to buy this newspa-
per, or if you know you will be able to feed
your family today and tomorrow and the
next day, there are millions of people in
this world who will find it hard to believe
anyone could have such good fortune.
It's possible for the time being you are in
such pain that it is a monstrous effort for
you to move around.


If you are able to rise from your b
chair and walk, there are people in h
tals throughout this land who would
ly exchange half the years they have ]
do as much.
Please believe me, I would not fo
moment belittle your troubles, wha
they may be. I know that your tro
weigh heavily because they are yours
you must live with them, hour by
and day by day.
It is only human for each of us t(
that our burdens are heaviest. But pei
you can join me in this thought:
As I catalogue my own difficulties;
look about me, I 'don't find anyone
whom I would wish to exchange mis
My own'are familiar to me, and
ageable, and I am grateful that I am al:
God's world, where there is caus
thanksgiving in every sunbeam and <
raindrop, where every new dawn b
promise of hope and faith for a bri
tomorrow.
May God's love for his children a
an echoing love in all our hearts.


It is a uniquely American holi-
day, Thanksgiving, a time set
aside for celebrating those things
for which we give thanks, and for
reflecting on our blessings.
My list grows each year.
For the fourth year, our richest
blessing is our little grandson,
Liam, the first grandchild for
both sets of grandparents. He is
part imp, part athlete, part cud-
dler, and all love.
Is the total greater than the
sum of the parts? It is; ask any
grandparent.
1* On this first Thanksgiving
* since the death of my Dad, I am
especially thankful for the editor-
ial published on this page. Dad
* wrote it as a column in the early
1960s, at one of the lowest points
edor in his life. He,was facing several
crises, including the slow, painful
'ospi- death of his father. Keep that in
glad- mind when you read it.
eft to Dad wrote millions of words
in his life, including gut-wrench-
r one ing experiences from the battle-
itever fields of World War II. In my
opinion, his Thanksgiving col-
ubles umn was his finest work.
3, and We columnists seem to do our
hour, best work when the words come
from the heart.
o feel I am thankful for our five chil-
dren, three born into our family
rhaps and two who had the good judg-
ment to marry into it. Little by lit-
s and tle, they are asking my advice less
with often and offering theirs more
series. often. That is the way life works,

and I am grateful for that.
Three of the five of them are
now doing post-graduate studies.

If all goes according to their
plans, we will have three teach-
ers, a preacher, and a nurse.
For my friend Mary, who is my
best example of the premise that
any man with half the brains he
was bor with can marry above
himself.
For my church, Holy Trinity
Episcopal, and my priest, Wally
Reynolds. They helped get me
through the final days of Dad's
life, days when heart-rending
decisions had to be made.
For Dad's wisdom in making it
clear to me many years ago that
he believed that biological life
preserved when meaningful life
is no longer possible serves no
purpose.
For doctors and nurses in the
ICU at what is now Bartow
Regional Medical Center, for
making his final days as peaceful
and pain-free as possible.
For the celebration of his life, a
funeral marked by laughter and
song and the knowledge that for
the first time in many months,
Dad recognized his entire family
as well as his friends, and was
reunited with Mother and others
who had gone on before him.
As I approach the age of 65,
less than two months away, I am
thankful for Medicare Parts A
and B, and for a military retiree
health plan called Tricare for Life,
which means, among other
things, that I don't have to figure
out Medicare Part D.
For medical and pharmaceuti-
cal advances which serve us all,
the young, the not so young, and


the not at all young, allowing us
to live fuller, richer, healthier
lives.
For the arrival of chilly weath-
er what we call Winter in
Florida which will add sugar
to our citrus crops and variety to
our wardrobes.
For the opportunity to be a
journalist, to ply my trade as best
I can, serving the communities of
Bartow, Lake Wales and .Fort
Meade, striving always for accu-
racy on the news pages and fair-
ness on the editorial page.
And for newspaper staffs in
our three communities who oper-
ate with a minimum of hands-on
guidance from their publisher,
but who share the same journalis-
tic objectives. Thanks to them, my
retirement is a long way off. I'm
having too much fun to quit.
For readers who take the time
to write or call, whether to com-
mend or to complain, for all of
them show that they care enough
to help us do our jobs better.
For the subscribers who'read
our newspapers, and the busi-
nesses who advertise in them,
because ours may be an unusual
business, but just like any other
business, it can survive only with
the support of its customers.
For the members of our armed
forces, serving a country whose
ideals they embrace, to the bene-
fit of mankind at home and
abroad.
For politicians, especially at
the local level, whose commit-
ment to public service carries less
compensation and more aggrava-


tion than those at the state and
national level. I am thankful for
the ones with whom I agree, and
for the ones with whom I seldom
agree. They all share a commit-
ment to service.
For the satisfaction that comes
from simple carpentry projects,
whether it's making a small win-
dow planter box, installing an air
conditioner, or assembling a
grandchild's swing set.
For an ever-growing collection
of tools for such projects, and
memories of the smile on my
father-in-law's face many years
ago when he looked into my shop
and said: "There's nothing like
having the right tool for the job."
I always knew that Calvin accept-
ed me as his son-in-law, but never
more than at that moment.
For sirloin steak porter-
house on special occasions -
grilled medium rare on a gas grill
that cost more than my first car,
served each Sunday to a family
who doesn't seem to mind that
the menu never changes.
For a side order of mush-
rooms, never seasoned quite the
same way twice, a tossed salad
with an endless assortment of
dressings, a glass of inexpensive
red wine.
For the beauty of a rose, the
aroma of fresh-brewed coffee, the
warmth of a friend's embrace, the
smile of a pretty girl, the great big
hug of a three-year-old grandson.
I am so richly blessed, and for
that, I thank God.

USDA Advice On Stuffing A Turkey Safely Legislative Delegation
4M Jr A- r% -- VE"I A


To stuff or not to stuff that
is the question on the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture's Meat
and Poultry Hotline.
It is an important question to
ask as the Thanksgiving and
Christmas holiday draws near,
because cooking a home-stuffed
turkey can be somewhat riskier
than cooking one not stuffed. If
the stuffing is not cooked and
handled properly, foodborne ill-
ness could occur.
However, with careful prepa-
ration and the use of a meat
thermometer to ensure that safe
temperatures are reached, con-
sumers can safely enjoy the tra-
ditional holiday stuffing inside
or outside the bird," says Bessie
Berry, Hotline Manager.
Checking the stuffing tem-
perature with a thermometer is
essential. That's because even if
the turkey itself has reached the
proper internal temperature of
180 degrees in the innermost
part of the thigh, the stuffing
may not have reached the cor-
rect temperature of 165 degrees
in its center. It is important to
reach this temperature in all
parts of the stuffing to be sure
that foodborne bacteria are de-
stroyed.
Berry also mentions that al-
though a "pop-up" thermometer
that comes with many turkeys is
one way to judge the bird's done-
ness, it can't tell you the tem-
perature, of the stuffing. A con-
ventional meat thermometer
should also be used with stuffed
birds.
After the estimated cooking
time has elapsed, a meat ther-
mometer should be inserted in
several places, including the in-
nermost part of the thigh and
the center of the stuffing, to
check the temperatures," Berry
explains.
If the innermost part of the
thigh has reached 180 degrees,
but the stuffing has not reached
165 degrees, continue roasting
the turkey, until the stuffing has
reached 165 degrees, according
to Berry. Be aware that during
the added cooking necessary to
bring the stuffing up to a safe
temperature, the meat may be-
come overcooked.
Once the turkey meat and the
stuffing have reached the proper
temperatures, Berry noted that
the bird should be removed from
the oven and allowed to "stand"
for 20 minutes before removing
the stuffing and carving.
"If you are not prepared to use
a meat thermometer to measure
the internal temperature of the
stuffing in the bird, then the
stuffing should be cooked outside

Carve A Perfect

Butterball Turkey


Carve a picture-perfect But-
terball turkey like a professional
by following these four simple
steps from the turkey experts.
1. Cut band of skin holding
drumsticks. Grasp end of drum-
stick. Place knife between drum-
stick/thigh and body of the tur-
key and cut through skin to
joint. Remove entire leg by pull-
ing out and back, using the point
of the knife to disjoin it. Sepa-
rate the thigh and drumstick at
the joint.
2. Insert fork in upper wing to
steady turkey. Make a long hori-


zontal cut above wing joint
through to body frame. Wing
may be disjointed from body, if
desired.
3. Slice straight down with an
even stroke, beginning halfway
up the breast. When knife
reaches the cut above the wing
joint, slice will fall free.
4. Continue to slice breast
meat, starting the cut at a
higher point each time.
To help make carving easier,
use a straight and sharpened
knife.

the turkey," advises Berry.
What about frozen turkeys
stuffed at a USDA-inspected
plant? Berry said that those tur-
keys purchased frozen at a gro-
cery store should be safe when
cooked from the frozen state, but
cautioned that the manufactur-
er's directions should be followed
carefully.
Here are some other impor-
tant food safety guidelines to fol-
low:
Handle raw turkeys safely.
Take the turkey home directly
from the grocery store. Errands
should be run first, before going
to the store.
At home, place the turkey
immediately in the refrigerator
or freezer.
A fresh turkey should be
cooked within two days.
Defrost frozen turkeys in
the refrigerator, allowing 24
hours for each five pounds.
For faster thawing, place
the frozen turkey in cold water,
allowing about 30 minutes per
pound. The water should be
changed every half-hour. A tur-
key may be defrosted in the mi-
crowave if it is large enough, but
follow the manufacturer's in-
structions. Cook immediately af-
ter defrosting.
Prepare stuffing safely. Mix
the stuffing just before it goes


into the turkey. If more conven-
ient, the wet and dry ingredients
can be prepared ahead of time
and chilled. Mix the ingredients
just before placing the stuffing
inside the turkey or in a casse-
role.
Stuff the bird properly. The
turkey should be stuffed loosely
about 3/4 cup of stuffing per
pound of turkey. This will help
allow the stuffing to reach the
proper internal temperature
whether the stuffing is in the
bird or in a casserole. Use a
meat thermometer to be sure.
The stuffing should be moist, not
dry, since heat destroys bacteria
more rapidly in a moist environ-
ment.
Cook at the proper tempera-
ture. The stuffed turkey should
be placed immediately in a pre-
heated oven set no lower than
325 degrees. Cooking overnight
in a "slow" oven is not recom-
mended since foodborne bacteria
can form under these conditions.
Storing leftovers. Leftovers
should be stored within two
hours of cooking. Cut the turkey
off the bones. Refrigerate the
stuffing and the turkey sepa-
rately in shallow containers. Use
leftover turkey within four days;
stuffing and gravy, in one or two
days.

that the road would become
"Gandy Road Freeway," and that
the development would destroy
the nature of the neighborhood.
Bill Ward, whose home is 50
feet from the proposed new devel-
opment, told the commission: "I'd
hate to see it become another
(County Road) 540-A.
"Everybody says a quarter-
acre lot is compatible with two-
acre," he added.
Brian Garrett said the devel-
opers don't live in Bartow, and
suggested that they should live
in their developments for a year.
"If bigger is better, Arnold
needs you in California," he said.
Mary Legg Trask, who lives in
Peace River Estates, urged
"responsible development in our
city."
Winding River Cove "will start
a domino effect" for other devel-
opments in the area, she said.
The county doesn't plan to
upgrade Gandy Road, which is a
county road, in the next 10 years,
she said. I
"If you were my neighbor,
what would you do?" she asked.

Poor Visibility
Gerald Hunter said Gandy
Road is not safe for school buses,
and has poor visibility.
Don Ruster, who lives on a
half-acre homesite on Gandy
Road, said he owns a 10-acre
grove, and plans to develop it
with half-acre lots.
He urged the commission to
set that standard for the neigh-
borhood.
Septic tank drainfields must
be replaced and relocated every


15 to 18 years, he said, adding
that he didn't think the lots in
Winding River Cover are big
enough to permit that.
Bill Ward told the commission
that it had told Fritze it wanted
to see lower density, and Fritze
did not comply.
T. Franklin Black said there is
no right-of-way available to
widen Gandy Road.
"RE-2 is what you need to see
out there," he said.

$200,000-Plus Homes
Jim Saccarella, the developer,
said that RE-2 zoning requires
homes of at least 1,200 square
feet, and he is planning homes of
1,450 to 1,650 square feet, with a
selling price of $200,000 or more.
"There's no way what I pro-
pose will bring less value to your
neighborhood," he told the audi-
ence.
He said the soil type on his
property is good for septic tanks.
"I'm asking for 41 lots; that's
all I'm asking," he said.
Speaking in favor of the devel-
opment, David Brewer told the
commission that larger lots "are
considered to be urban sprawl."
He urged the commission "to
do what is best for the City of
Bartow."
Pointing to the audience, Mrs.
Thornburg said:
"To me, that's Bartow.
"I feel we've got to listen to the
people and then act accordingly."
"Where public facilities exist,
we should be looking at high den-
sity," Longworth told his fellow
commissioners.
He said he doesn't support the
DCA's approval of six units per

acre, but that he does support the
2.4 units per acres proposed in
Winding River Cove.

Defining Compatibility
Commissioner Andy Laurent
said the commission "can do a
better job of defining compatibili-
ty than saying residential is resi-
dential."
Hinton said he grew up in
South Miami when it was a small
town like Bartow.
'"We've got to do something
about controlling our growth," he
said. "I don't think subdivision to
subdivision is (automatically)
compatible."
Commissioner Pat Huff said
he was less concerned about the
density than about the traffic on
Gandy Road.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said that the property could be
developed to RE-2 standards, two
units per acre.
"The developer said no way to
RE-2," Longworth responded.
Fritze told the commission
that RE-2 actually permits only
1.68 units per acre, not two.
"R-1-B zoning is not the only
zoning we can live with," he said.
"RE-2 in our eyes is not appropri-
ate."
He said his client might be
able to develop to R-1-2A stan-
dards two notches up the city's
zoning code "as our absolute
maximum.
"Thirty-three homes is under-
developing that property."
On a roll call vote, Hinton,
Laurent and Mrs. Thornburg
voted to defeat the ordinance,
while Longworth and Huff voted
to approve it.

Peace Without Borders


First Place, Hailey Stuart, Bartow Middle School


Honorable Mention, Jonathan Esteros


"Peace Without Borders"
was the theme of this year's
Peace Poster Contest, spon-
sored by the Bartow Lions
Club.
Kappy Williams of the
Bartow Art Guild chose one
first-place winner from each
of the area elementary
schools. Students were
encouraged to visually depict
their interpretation of the
contest's theme. The posters
were judged on artistic
merit, originality, and adher-
ence to the theme.
First place winners were
Suzanna Calandros of Union
Academy (teacher Beverly
Williams), Hailey Stuart of
Bartow Middle School
(teacher Renee Long), and
Ryan Kenney of First
Methodist School (teacher
Lesha Hall).
The colorful posters were
submitted by young artists
between the ages of 11 and
13. Each first place submis-
sion will receive a $50 sav-
ings bond, and will be for-
warded to district and state
levels for runoff winners.
State winners go on to
compete in the international
competition, the winner of
which will be presented in
the United Nations Building'
on World Lions Day in the
spring.
The international first-
place winner will be awarded
$2,500, and each of 23 merit
winners will receive $500.
"I am so proud of these
youths who acknowledge the
value of peace and who will
be our future in a search of
world peace without bor-
ders," Lions President John


Godwin said. "I am
impressed by the expression
and creativity of these stu-
dents. I am proud our Lions
Club was able to provide
them with the opportunity to
share their visions."
This marks the 18th
annual contest in which
more than 350,000 entries
were submitted.
The international grand
prize winner and 12 merit
posters from last year's con-
test are on exhibit at the
Bartow Public Library.
Last year's winner, C6sar
Moreno Tessarin (sponsored
by the Cerquilho Lions Club
in Brazil) said, "If people
have peace in their hearts,
nothing will destroy it. Peace
starts in our homes, streets,
and cities."
"Peace is so important to
human beings," Weicheng
Zeng (sponsored by China
Shenzhen Bin Hai Lions

I DON'T HAVE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY


BUT I'M ONE OF "ERRY'S KIDS'
I have Friedreich's ataxia. It's one of the over 30 other muscle
and nerve destroying diseases covered by the Muscular
Dystrophy Association in addition to the muscular dystro-
phies themselves. That gives me and tens ofthousands like me
with other neuromuscular diseases the same help through
MPA clinics, summer camps and support groups, and the
same hope through MDA's worldwide research program.

Saturday's Magic on Main celebrated the (almost) com-
pleted streetscaping of Bartow's Main Street and some of
its side streets with just about every activity possible in
one day. The event actually kicked off the night before with
Friday Fest. On Saturday, a run, a bike ride and a motorcycle
poker run and bike fest started off the day. Several local organi-
zations set up booths to show the activities they sponsor, such as
the Crickette Club Halloween Carnival, the Bloomin' Arts Fest,
and Bartow Garden Club's flower show. Musical entertainment
was offered by several groups sponsored by Juneteenth organiz-
ers (below), by a city-wide chorus, Bartow Elementary Academy
Pride Team, and brothers JD and Larry Madrid. More music and
children's activities were offered at the Polk County Historical
Museum. Five-year-old Amy Hastings (right) used a variety of
craft items to make a Santa hat. Vendors offered crafts and
antiques, like these colorful glass bottles. A new sign at the
southeast corner of the historic courthouse block offers a lighted
map on one side and a list of contributors and events on the
other. The tree lights will remain on during the holiday season
and will be turned on again for special events downtown.

MELISSA LANIER OF BARTOW was at her regular pitching
practice with her coach, Richard Green, and her batting coach, Glenn
Rutenbar, when she was asked to play in the Winter Blast
Tournament in Altamonte Springs by the Haines City Stingers, a 12
and under team. During the tournament, Melissa pitched two games,
winning them both, and showed strength at the plate. She had 13 at-
bats, getting 10 RBIs with nine hits for a .692 batting average (left)
and helping the team to its very first championship. The Stingers
dominated the championship game, ending it early in the fourth
inning because of the run rule. The team only lost one game in the
whole tournament. The Stingers had never made it even close to the
championship until this tournament. (Photos provided)



PWWF Hosts Two

Events Next Weekend


Miners Prep For State
Semifinals Against Bay Point


By SANDY DERRICK

It's on to the state semifinals
for the Fightin' Miners. Friday
night, they host Miami Bay
Point at 7:30 at Frank S. Battle
Field.
"At this point in the playoffs,
when you get to the state semifi-
nals, anybody you play is gonna
be an excellent football team,"
said Hayde. "They run a spread
offense. They have a spread
package and a shotgun package.
They have an 'I' package where
they run the ball up the middle
and off tackle.
"They have some really good
skill people; some dangerous
men at receiver and quarterback
that we're gonna have to con-
tain. They have good speed on
defense. In certain places they
have good size."
The Falcons enter tonight's
game with a record of seven wins
and three losses: three wins at
home, three away, and one in a
neutral location; and one loss at
home, one away, and one in a
neutral location.


They average 22.5 points per
game, while allowing only 8.4
points per game.
The Miners enter tonight's
game with a record of eight wins
and four losses: five wins at
home, and three away; two
losses at home, and two away.
They average 24.5 points-per-
game, while allowing just 12.3
points-per-game.
Last week, the Miners showed
great balance with both an effec-
tive running and passing game.
They will have to repeat that
performance tonight to keep
their hopes of a repeat state title
alive.
"We're gonna have to play
four quarters," said Hayde.
"We're gonna have to execute
and limit our penalties, mis-
takes, and turn-overs. We're
gonna have to play good defense,
play good special teams, execute
on offense, and handle any mo-
mentum changes with poise and
confidence.
"That's how playoff football
goes."


Lauren Perrin, former Bartow
resident, was recognized as the
NAIA national volleyball player
for the week ending Nov. 13.
Perrin is a redshirt sopho-
more at King College in Bristol,
Tenn. She averaged three kills
per game as King went 5-2 on
the week.
An outside hitter, she average


over five digs per game and had
a total of 11 blocks and 16 aces
during the week.
She also was named the con-
ference tournament MVP for her
efforts.

These companies are not a

Celebration Of Senior

Athletes Planned Dec. 6


Besides the nine days of com-
petition by thousands of athletes
in 24 sports and events, one of
the most exciting times of the
annual Florida Senior Games
State Championships is the
Celebration of Athletes.
The 2005 Celebration of Ath-
letes will be held Tuesday, Dec.
6, in The Villages Spanish
Springs Town Square beginning
at 5 p.m.
The Celebration of Athletes
brings the Olympic-style festival
feel to its peak when the athletes
of the Florida Senior Games
State Championships parade
around the town square while
music plays and spectators ap-
plaud.
Athletes march in the parade
with other qualifiers from their
local senior games event.
Once all of the athletes are in
the town square, the ceremonial
torch is lit by the previous year's
athlete of the year.
Dinner will be provided for all
athletes and the tales of monu-
mental athletic performances
will carry on well into the night.
"I got a lot of respect after
winning the award," said 2003
Male Athlete of the Year, James


Anderson, a swimmer from New
Port Richey. "It's a lot of respon-
sibility when you win an award
like that. The best part of it was
lighting the torch at the state
championships and receiving the
award on stage. I've got the
torch lighting on film and my
daughter called me and told me
she cried when she saw it."
An added attraction to the
2005 Florida Senior Games State
Championships Celebration of
Athletes beyond the normal
pomp and circumstance is a
Health and Fitness Expo at the
Town Square.
It will go on after the Celebra-
tion of Athletes ceremony until 8
p.m.
The exhibitors of the health
and fitness expo include physi-
cians, the Florida Chiropractic
Association, therapists, massage
chairs, interactive areas, a golf
swing demo by Blue Cross Blue
Shield of Florida and physical
screenings. Most exhibitors will
have promotional materials and
samples available.

Musings From God's Penman


Too Much Turkey, Not Enough Gravy


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
This time of the year, my
thoughts rove back to memories
of my maternal grandmother.
The Thanksgiving season
brought all her special talents to
the forefront.
To me, my grandmother
reigned as queen of the kitchen
and functioned as the world's
greatest cook.
Thanksgiving brought all my
relatives to my grandmother's
house. -
My grandfather lived there
too, but with all the food on the
table, nobody noticed. He joined
the rest of us in eager anticipa-
tion of Grandmother's Thanks-
giving spread.
To be honest, my grand-
mother did not do everything.
My grandfather made a major
contribution to the Thanksgiving
preparation.
In fact, he had the most im-
portant part: he stayed out of
Grandmother's kitchen. I have
always appreciated that quality
of my grandfather.
As November made its debut,
everyone in my family eagerly
awaited Thanksgiving Day. We
talked of nothing else for weeks
in advance.
Someone might think all this
excitement about Grandmother's
Thanksgiving spread a little ex-
treme. That is simply because
they never had any of her "vit-
tles." One bite, or even one good
whiff, could convince anyone
that my grandmother's cooking
ranked number one.
Don't think that every
Thanksgiving went off perfectly.
No, siree. There were times
when circumstances severely
challenged Grandmother's pa-
tience, if not her sanity.
But no matter what hap-
pened, she always came through
with fried goodies. No matter
what the crisis, somehow my
grandmother had the perfect rec-
ipe.
One year, contrary to her
usual good sense, my grand-
mother allowed my grandfather
to watch the turkey while she
went down the road for an im-
port-ant meeting at the church.,
As an 'active: meriber of her
church, Grandmother felt an ob-
ligation to do her part.
"If everybody did their part,"
she explained to me once, "every-


thing would get done."
Although not completely com-
fortable leaving the important
turkey under Grandfather's
watchful eye, Grandmother felt
she had no other option.
"Jim," she said to my grandfa-
ther, "I want you to pay atten-
tion to every word I say."
My grandfather was a great
old man. I always enjoyed the
many romps I had with him. He
seemed to know exactly what
children liked to do.
Despite Grandmother's warn-
ings, he somehow managed to
sneak in a little fun for his
grandchildren. For example,
there was the time he let all the
grandchildren slide down Grand-
mother's banister.
But trusting my grandfather
with something as important as
the Thanksgiving turkey was
just asking too much.
"Jim," Grandmother in-
structed, "all you have to do is
make sure the turkey doesn't go
dry."
Of course, my grandfather
wanted to do everything Grand-
mother instructed him to do. If
anyone had good intentions, it
was my grandfather.
Unfortunately, this was one of
those times when good inten-
tions did not help the Thanksgiv-
ing turkey.
"Just baste the turkey every
15 minutes with this turkey bas-
ter and make sure it doesn't go
dry," my grandfather's life's
partner explained.
To make sure my grandfather
understood the importance of
her instructions, Grandmother
added one last note. "If this tur-
key goes dry, your goose is
cooked."
We all knew Grandmother
was not joking. She never joked
about her cooking. Martha
Stewart could learn a thing or
two about culinary etiquette
from my grandmother.
To be brutally honest about
the whole incident, it was not my
grandfather's fault that the
meeting at the church lasted as
long as it did. Everyone knows
church committee meetings
sometimes have a life, of their
own and can go on for days,
During the first hour of his
vigil, my grandfather did every-
thing my grandmother in-
structed him to do. However, it
was cold outside and the old-


fashioned wood stove in the room
off the kitchen spread a warm
blanket throughout the house,
creating a drowsy ambience.
Anyone in the same situation
would have done the same thing
my grandfather did.
He fell asleep.
Grandmother's Thanksgiving
turkey not only went dry, it
shriveled to a dark black lump.
The excited voice of my grand-
mother shrieking aroused my
grandfather from his slumber.
"Oh, Jim, the turkey, the tur-
key!"
Although groggy, Grandfather
knew his goose was cooked, and
nobody cooked goose like my
grandmother.
How well I remember that
Thanksgiving. Although a
smaller turkey than usual, my
grandmother had more than
enough gravy to go around.
One strange thing about that
Thanksgiving that has lingered
in my mind all these years was
that my grandfather did not eat
any turkey.
When the turkey plate came
his way, he quickly glanced at
my grandmother and said with a
familiar laugh, "Oh, I couldn't
eat another bite," and he passed
the plate.
Then with a chuckle in his
voice, he said something I did
not quite understand at the
time.
"Some folks make too much
fuss over the turkey and not
enough over the gravy."
Turning to my grandmother,
he continued. "Mary, this has to
be the best gravy you've ever
made."
My grandmother smiled one
of her maternal smiles and eve-
ryone went back to the business
of the day.
I learned that day that there
is a danger in making too much
of the turkey, and not enough of
the gravy in life.
The Bible puts it this way,
"For ye see your calling, breth-
ren, how that not many wise
men after the flesh, not many
mighty, not many noble, are
called: But God hath chosen the
foolish things of the world to con-
found the wise; and God hath
chosen the weak things of the
world to confound the things
which are mighty; And base
things of the world, and things
which are despised, hath God


chosen, yea, and things which
are not, to bring to naught
things that are: That no flesh
should glory in his presence" (1
Corinthians 1:26-29 KJV).
Like gravy, many things that
we overlook and consider insig-
nificant, God uses for His glory.

W GE THANKS
We all are taught at an early age to say "please" and
"thank you," and once we are old enough to pray, we are
taught to extend. these gracious words to God. Young
children learn to thank God for their parents, their sib-
lings, and for all of the other blessings bestowed on
them. But, it can be difficult to explain to children, or
adults for that matter, how and why we should be thank-
ful for everything. In the First Epistle of Paul to the
Thessalonians we are told to "Rejoice always, pray con-
stantly, and give thanks in all circumstances" (1
Thessalonians 5: 16-18). Perhaps Paul's point here is
that just as we can choose to pray or not to pray, and
indeed even pray without ceasing by keeping an internal
dialogue going with God, we can choose to rejoice and to
give thanks at all times. Giving thanks'is more about
choosing to have a thankful attitude than it is about
explicitly saying, "thank you" to God. And just as we can
strive to maintain a constant internal dialogue with God,
so too can we remain ever thankful in our outlook and
attitude. Of course, we must realize that being thankful
is more about our subjective attitude than the objective
external circumstances of our lives.

O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is
good: for His mercy endureth for ever.

Reflections On


Faith

By Roger Campbell




The Healing Power

of Thanksgiving


By ROGER CAMPBELL

"Do you still look out your
study window and give thanks?"
asked my 26-year-old grandson,
his question being drawn from
memories of childhood.
Allow me to explain.
During one of the most diffi-
cult periods of my life, I started
this early appointment to give
thanks because of these wise
words from A.W. Tozer, the well-
known writer of Christian clas-
sics: '"Now as a cure for the sour
faultfindiig -attitude, I recom-
mend the cultivation of the habit
ofjthankfulness. The heart that
is -tonstantly overflowing with
gratitude will be safe from at-
tacks "of resentfulness and
gloom," adding: "Thanksgiving
has great curative powers."
Tozer's cdaim of the healing
power.pf thanksgiving came to
nimy attentionwhen I was strug-
gling with health issues, so I de-
cided to test it, giving birth to
miy continuing early morning
treksi.'to my study window to
start ity day with. an attitude of
gratitude.
When grandchildren came to
stay overnight, they. knew where
they could .find me at first light,
and soon after I arrived at my
praising place, the soft sound of
slippers on tiny feet would alert
me to the arrival of one or more
of them heading into my study,
where they stood beside me as I
gave thanks for my blessings.
A minister called early this
morning to ask how to survive a
difficult period in his life.
S"Try giving thanks," I advised.
And my prescription for peace
was born.out of experience.
:When' members of a wagon
train headedwest on the Oregon
Trail, they were confident and
optimistic.
;Then reality arrived. Water,
became hard to find, wagons
broke down and with these'
difficulties'came a change in
mood of the entire, company of


travelers.
They became edgy, angry, and
discouraged. Tempers flared as
conflicts over their obstacles di-
vided former friends.
The trip seemed longer and
more discouraging every day, so
in order to keep from self-de-
structing, this gloomy group de-
cided to call a meeting to air
their complaints and try to re-
solve their conflicts.
When the meeting was about
to begin, someone made a sug-
gestion that lifted the clouds cov-
ering this company of complain-
ers and enabled them to recap-
ture their dreams.
"Before we do anything else,"
he said, "I think we should
thank God that we have come
this far with no loss of life and
strength enough to finish our
journey."
After giving thanks for things
they had been taking for
granted, an opportunity for voic-
ing complaints was given, but it
was greeted with silence.
Thanksgiving had turned
their minds from problems to
praise, and sent them on their
way with their vision renewed
and the confidence to achieve it.
Thanksgiving is a powerful,
healing, life-changing attitude
mentioned 140 times in the Bi-
ble.
"It is good to give thanks to
the Lord," said the Psalmist
(Psalm 92:1).
Abraham Lincoln saw thank-
fulness as a means of binding up
the nation's wounds following
the Civil War and his Thanks-
giving Proclamation of 1863 re-
veals that desire.
His call to remember our
blessings is needed today in an-
gry America.
When I started giving thanks
every morning, I thought I
wouldn't live much longer but
30 yearslJater I'm',writing this .
column about 'the healing power
of thanksgiving.
And you're reading it.

Food Safety Tips Will Help Avoid Illness This Holiday


With Thanksgiving just days
away, Florida Agriculture Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson
reminds state residents to follow
a few food safety tips to avoid
turning a holiday celebration
into a case of food-borne illness.
"Everybody enjoys holiday
meals, and with a little care,
nothing will mar the pleasure of


the celebration," Bronson said.
"But food safety measures are
particularly important, espe-
cially with the variety of foods
being served and the number of
helpers in the kitchen."
An estimated 76 million peo-
ple contract food-borne illness in
the United States each year, and
about 5,000 sich cases are fatal.
Young children, pregnant
women, the elderly and those
with compromised immune sys-
tems are the most vulnerable for
contracting such illness.
Before cooking make sure to:
Clean and sanitize cooking


equipment.
Wash your hands thor-
oughly with soap and warm wa-
ter before beginning to prepare
the food.
Keep raw foods away from
cooked foods to avoid cross-con-
tamination, and make sure that
raw meat juices never come in
contact with salads and vegeta-
bles.
Defrost the turkey in the re-
frigerator, or if time is short, it
can be defrosted under cold run-
ning water in a matter of hours.
But never defrost the bird at
room temperature as bacteria

can rapidly grow on raw meat at
room temperature.
State and federal food safety
officials stress that the turkey
should be cooked to an internal
temperature of at least 165 de-
grees, and a food thermometer
should be used to verify the tem-
perature. While many people
cook stuffing inside the bird, offi-
cials suggest that it be cooked in
a separate pan because there is
no guarantee that the stuffing
will reach 165 degrees at the
same time as the turkey.
Leftovers should be refriger-
ated promptly and should sit out
no more than-wro hours after
coming out of the oven.

Turkey!


So Thanksgiving is over,
and the family is stuffed quite
full of turkey and dressing, but
there are plenty of leftovers.
My family enjoys celebrat-
ing a mini-Thanksgiving at
lunch the next day, but after
that, it appears we're relegat-'
ed to boring turkey sandwich-
es.
This Thanksgiving, why not
try a few new recipes to use up
leftover turkey?
Some sandwiches are
included, but very few.
Be adventurous, and you
may find you like turkey left-
overs enough to serve them
year-rouind.
