THE WORLD'S LARGEST KETTLE was built right here in Polk
County to draw attention .to The Salvation Army's annual fundraising
campaign. Capt. Amy Lee dropped the symbolic first donation into the.
kettle at the campaign kickoff. It's a long way down and will take a
lot of quarters and bills to fill. The kettle will be on display until Dec.
24, alternating between Publix at Oakbridge and Publix at Southgate
in Lakeland.


Local Bell Ringers Kick Off


Salvation Army Kettle Campaign


Bells are ringing a familiar
Christmas sound, but without
more volunteers, it won't be.
heard as often.
The Salvation Army of
Western Polk County kicked off
this year's kettle fundraising
campaign with its annual
Media/Mogul Competition. The
event pairs media representa-
tives from newspapers, radio
and television stations with
community leaders in a friendly
competition to see who can col-
lect the most donations in an


hour of ringing.
Coming in second was
Bartow's team of George Harris,
chairman and chief executive
officer of Citrus & Chemical
Bank, and Peggy Kehoe, manag-
ing editor of The Polk County
Democrat, who manned a kettle
at Publix in Bartow.
First place went to Lakeland
Police Chief Roger Boatner and
Sarah Michaels and Tom
O'Brian of WPCV. In third were
Lakeland Mayor Buddy Fletcher
and Chris Kelly of WWRZ.


Local Man Dies After

Motorcycle Accident


An 81-year-old Bartow man
who was injured in a crash while
riding his motorcycle Saturday
afternoon, has died.
According to Bartow Police
Officer Pete Tong, Alfred J. "Al"
Bourque of 2055 South Floral
Avenue was traveling south on
Gordon Avenue on a 1983 Honda
motorcycle, while a 2004 Ford,
driven by Shawn Michael
Deason, 19, of Lakeland, was
traveling west on Clower.
As Bourque approached
Clower, he came to a stop, then
continued into the intersection.
Deason saw Bourque and


attempted to stop, but the front
of his vehicle struck the motor-
cycle, Tong said.
Bourque, who was not wear-
ing a helmet, was airlifted by
LifeNet to LRMC, where he died
on Monday.
Bourque was a veteran of the
U.S. Navy Seabees and
Merchant Marines, serving in
World War II, the Korean
Conflict, and Vietnam.
He was a member of St.
Thomas Catholic Church in
Bartow.

'Light Up Bartow' Parade

Christmas Is Tuesday


Main Street Bartow's annual
"Light Up Christmas" parade will
be held Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 6 p.m.
The parade will begin at IMC
Park north of the Bartow Civic
Center, go north on Broadway
Avenue to Main Street, then east
on Main to First Avenue.
Trophies will be awarded for
the best floats in five areas: best
professional, best non-profession-
al, best church, best school, and
best animal entry.
Following the parade, begin-
ning at approximately 7:15,
entertainment will be held on the
south side of the Polk County
Historical Museum.
The parade is sponsored by
Main Street Bartow and the City
of Hartow.


For further information, con-
tact Main Street Bartow at 534-
4030.


The seven media/mogul
teams collected $2,495 in an
hour, which includes a little pre-
competition "padding of the ket-
tles.".
Using all volunteers this year,
the Salvation Army is in great
need of ringers. Times vary, and
the campaign comes to an end on
Dec. 24 at 4 p.m. Kettles will be
at area Publix, Sam's Club, Wal-


Mart and Winn Dixie stores.
To volunteer call Carol
Alexander at 682-8179, ext. 35,
or 559-1057'.
The Salvation Army helps
individuals and families
throughout the year, offering
emergency assistance and social
service programs, as well as hav-
ing programs for disaster relief
and for those in the military.


Polk County will apply more
than $3.6 million turned back to
the county treasury by the sher-
iff and the courts clerk to help
pay for a new $7.6 million com-
puter system.
At the request of Courts Clerk
Richard Weiss, the commission
voted unanimously to add
$3,679,920 from that source to
the $4 million already budgeted
to replace an 18-year-old com-
puter system that Weiss said is
no longer adequate for the coun-
ty's needs.
The new system is projected
to pay for itself over a period of
from three to six years by mak-
ing operations more efficient,
commissioners were told.
Based on a lengthy evaluation


of proposals by the Government
Finance Officers Assn., the com-
mission approved expenditures
of:
$585,000 with Oracle for
Enterprise Resource Planning
system software.
$4,164,320 with AST Corp.
for implementation services for
the new system.
$500,000 for project man-
agement oversight.
$110,000 for nine months
funding for two new positions: a
data base administrator and a
network administrator.
The commission also autho-
rized the county manager to
develop an incentive based com-
pensation plan for the project.


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

The board of directors of the
embattled Polk County
Opportunity Council fired its
executive director, Carolyn
Speed, on Monday.
With only a bare quorum of
seven of its 13 members present,
the vote to fire Ms. Speed from
her $90,000 a year job was unan-
imous. Ms. Speed did not attend
the meeting.
At the urging of board member
Kevin Roberts, the board voted to
fire Ms. Speed unless she submit-
ted a written resignation that
day. She submitted a letter of res-
ignation the next day.
Under employment law, a res-
ignation submitted under such
conditions constitutes dismissal.
Gary Hartfield, operations and
development director of the
agency, was appointed interim
executive director.
The community action agency,
which has a budget of $12.4 mil-
lion, has come under increasing
scrutiny and criticism, some of it
directed at Ms. Speed's leadership
and some at the agency as a
whole.
On Nov. 14, the Florida Dept.
of Community Affairs placed the
agency on probationary status for
one year.
DCA warned the PCOC board
that if it did not bring its pro-
grams into compliance with state
and federal regulations, the DCA
and the U.S. Dept. of Health and
Human Services "will move to
terminate PCOC's Community
Action Agency designation."
A 13-page report prepared by
Mid-Iowa Community Action,
based on a week-long investiga-
tion conducted in October, made
numerous criticisms.
The six!member team, which
was brought in by the state to


examine the agency, said:
"The assessment team uncov-
ered widespread distrust within
PCOC and of PCOC by the com-
munity and their funders.
"Without replacement of most
- if not all organizational
leadership, it is doubtful that
PCOC can regain the trust of its
stakeholders: the poor, the com-
munity, and the funders.
"It is not certain that even
such dramatic measures would
save the organization."
Congressman Adam Putnam
has been particularly critical of
the agency, and has prompted a
federal investigation into PCOC
which is expected to take most of
the month of December.
Among the findings of the Mid-
Iowa Community Action investi-
gation:
"PCOC lacks organizational
coherence and focus."
There is poor communication
among the agency's staff, and
between the executive director
and the board of directors.
"There is a breakdown in the
chain of command at every level
of the agency."
"The PCOC board of direc-
tors exercises very little meaning-
ful responsibility for the opera-
tions and well-being of the orga-
nization. The board primarily rat-
ifies actions and decisions already
made by the staff, without exer-
cising its responsibility to assure
those actions comply with grant
and contract conditions, program
regulations, or financial manage-
ment circulars."
"The situation has deterio-
rated to the point that board
members expressed frustration
with having to make decisions
without adequate information
from the staff. Staff members
expressed frustration that there
is no point providing the board
with detailed information that
the board does not understand.


Consequently, the board is regu-
larly asked to make important
decisions based on little or no
supporting information."
"Only a half dozen members
attend board meetings with regu-
larity."
Board members are appoint-
ed for 12-year terms, and the
terms have been extended repeat-
edly "for the apparent purpose of
not having to recruit new mem-
bers."
"Several members of the
leadership team received large
unsubstantiated, increases" in
their salaries.
"Several employees in agency
management positions are direct-
ly related to the executive direc-
tor."
PCOC's financial manage-
ment systems "do not employ suf-
ficient internal controls to record
transactions, generate required
reports, and safeguard assets."
The agency's primary activity
is the Head Start program, which
has an enrollment of 954 chil-
dren.
The report said that the Head
Start staff "did not provide to the
assessment team in a timely
manner information (contracts,
work plans) that should have
been readily available, despite
being asked repeatedly for that
information."
The agency administers nearly
$1 million in funds for the Low
Income Home Energy Assistance
Program in Polk, Hardee,
Okeechobee and Highland
Counties.
"The agency could not produce
appropriate documentation for
checks it has issued to energy
suppliers," the investigators
reported.
A weatherizationn assistance"
program, which provides funds
for making homes more weather-
proof, also is poorly operated, the
team found.


'Magic on Main' To Be


Annual Downtown Event


Bartow's Community
Redevelopment Agency wants to
see "Magic on Main" made an
annual event.
Held on Saturday, Nov. 19,
"Magic on Main" was a celebra-
tion of the $2.8 million redesign of
the downtown business district.
It began at 7 a.m. with a 'Tow
the Distance 5,000-meter run,
and concluded 15 hours later with
a three-hour street dance.
Though making "Magic on
Main" an annual celebration is
only a general concept at this
point, CRA members discussed
combining it with the annual
Light Up Bartow Christmas
parade.
Jim Duane, executive director
of the CRA, said it was impossible
to say how many people attended
the event because people were
coming and going from 7 a.m. to
10 p.m. He estimated total atten-
dance at between 5,000 and
6,000.
The Tour de 'Tow, a bicycling
event, drew more than 100 partic-
ipants, nearly twice the number
that organizers had expected.
"We want to capture the pre-
mier cycling event in Polk County
-and not let it get away," Duane
said. Future Tour de 'Tow events
could be held in conjunction with
the Bloomin' Arts Festival in the
spring, or with an annual Magic
on Main event at the start of the
Christmas season, he said.
Both the bicycling event and
the run drew a number of out-of-
town participants, said CRA
Board Member Mayme Clark,
who was chairman of Magic on
Main.
Mrs. Clark commended the
"dedicated volunteers" who
staged the event, for which plan-
ning began early in the year. She
said the planning committee is
discussing ways to make "Magic
on Main" an annual event.


Duane told the CRA board that
the agency raised $40,950 in vol-
untary donations toward the
$70,000 cost of the event. The two
major expenses were $30,000 for
lighting of downtown buildings
and landscaping, and $30,000 for
advertising.
Tabulation of questionnaires
completed by 105 visitors selected
at random by volunteer pollers
indicated that newspaper adver-
tising was the most effective form
of promotion, followed by bill-
boards, television spots, and'
radio, Duane said.
While the vast majority of
those polled said they enjoyed the
event, eight said they did not. Of
those eight, seven said they had
to work at the event, he said.
The event drew visitors from
virtually every city in Polk
County, and from Tampa and
Orlando. Several out-of-state visi-
tors were interviewed by the poll-
takers, including a Louisiana
family who left their home to tour
the country after Hurricane
Katrina struck. They said they
hope to return to Bartow in the
future, Duane said.
Visitors were asked what they
would like to see in downtown
Bartow. Their responses:
58 want a major restaurant
that is open at night.
49 want night-time enter-
tainment.
26 want more specialty
shops.
24 want more general retail
stores.
"Magic on Main" was planned
to celebrate the completion of the
downtown redesign project, but
resurfacing of Main Street in the
heart of downtown was delayed
indefinitely because of concerns
about the structural stability of
the old Philip's Department Store
building.
The city ordered the building


vacated because of cracks in the
walls, and the owners have filed
suit against the city and the con-
tractor, alleging that the damage
was caused by the Main Street
work.
The contractor decided not to
do the milling of Main Street in
the downtown area because the
milling machine, which grinds
away a layer of asphalt, causes
extensive vibration.
Once the Philip's building
issue is resolved, the milling and
resurfacing will take only a few
days, Duane told the CRA board.
Construction of brick cross-
walks across Main Street will
take about six weeks, and will
disrupt traffic, he said.
Except for that, most construc-
tion work is nearly complete, he
said. Landscaping is still under
way.
The CRA board also:
Scheduled a planning retreat
for Saturday, Jan. 23.
Deferred accepting the finan-
cial report until some apparent
accounting inaccuracies 'are cor-
rected.
Discussed a "housing incen-
tive program," in which the CRA
will provide financial help to
home purchasers.
Cancelled its December
meeting, which would have been
held on Dec. 26. The agency's next
meeting will be on Jan. 23 at 8
a.m.

The Salvador Dali Museum is
proud to announce its next major
exhibition, Pollock To Pop:
America's Brush With Dali,
which will provide insight to the
relationship between post-WWII
American art and Dali's work
from that era.
The exhibition will present a
moment in the history of art of
great change, positioning major
works of American post-war art,
especially those in the manner of
abstract expressionism and pop
art in dialog with one another
.and with the painting of Salva-
dor Dali.
Featuring some of the most
significant works of modern art,
the exhibition will run from Dec.
9 until April 23.
"It is the aim of this exhibi-
tion to explore artistic dialogue
in a sophisticated and multi-di-
mensional sense," said William
Jeffett, curator of special exhibi-
tions. "The exhibition explores
the panorama of options avail-
able to Dali in the post-war
years, highlighting those espe-
cially he saw on his habitual vis-
its to New York each winter in
the decades after the war," he
added.
The exhibition will include art
borrowed from major American
museums, including the Metro-
politan Museum of Art in New
York, the National Gallery in
Washington, D.C., private collec-
tions, and foundations. Holding
the largest collection of Salvador
Dali works outside the artist's
native Spain, the Salvador Dalf
Museum in St. Petersburg will
also display selections from its

permanent collection to comple-
ment the exhibition.
Paintings in the exhibition
will include Number 7, 1952 by
Jackson Pollock and works by
Roy Lichtenstein, Willem de
Kooning, Mark Rothko, James
Rosenquist, and Chuck Close.
These works will be presented
to elucidate Dali's ongoing explo-
ration of both painterly and im-
age-based means of representa-

tion.
"We are very pleased to bring
such stellar examples of the
American artists who changed
the course of art, just as Dali
and the Surrealists changed its
course before," said Hank Hine,
executive director. "This exhibi-
tion, made possible by the gener-
ous loans of fellow museums and
the sponsorship of Progress En-
ergy, is significant as it is the
first to look particularly at the
vast influence American artists
and Salvador Dalf had on each
other," he added.
Among Salvador Dali's art in-
cluded in Pollock To Pop: Ameri-
ca's Brush with Dalf are Sistine
Madonna (1958) (Metropolitan
Museum of Art), Veldzquez
Painting the Infanta Marguerita
with the Lights and Shadows of
his Own Glory (1958) and Pofr-
trait of My Dead Brother (1963)
(both Salvador Dali Museum).
Also included is the museum's
most recent acquisition, Gala

nean Sea Which at Twenty Me-
ters Becomes a Portrait of Abra-
ham Lincoln (Homage to
Rothko), (Second Version)
(1976).

ED RICHARDS (in plaid shirt) checks the
temperature of the cane juice as it cooks down
into syrup. Friends surround the steamy kettle,


By LETA WRIGHT
I know everyone had. a Happy
Thanksgiving as it's a time for
family, food,., catch-up talk, and
giving thanks for all that we
have.
I have enjoyed being in the
country in the last two weeks,
which made the "Harvest Time"
of the year really come alive.
This is my favorite time of the
year when all the decorations of
hay, corn stalks, pumpkins,
bright yellow sunflowers and
chrysanthemums are on display,
and the air seems to get a little
cooler as we attend the football
games.
One of my country trips was
to the farm of Ed and Myra Rich-
ards in Summerfield. Leading up
to the home is a long lane from
the highway with pasture on
both sides and a patch of sugar
cane. The home is barely visible
from the highway and is beauti-
ful when you reach the end of
the lane, as it sits on a slight
knoll. On this occasion I kept
driving past the home to the
open air barn which was deco-
rated with rolls of hay, tables
and chairs, and people mingling
and mixing from one group to
another.
The big attraction was a huge
syrup kettle full of cane juice
that had been cooking since
early morning. Neighbor friends
help Ed by skimming the syrup
dredgings constantly. People
keep arriving until there is a
crowd of approximately 150 to
200. After the syrup has cooked
around five to six hours, they be-
ing to test it to see if it has
reached the proper temperature
on the thermometer. When it
has, it's time to eat, and the sau-
sage and pancakes are put on
the table for the "go" signal.
There are several sausage deep
fryers and several hot grills for
the pancakes, which is a sight of
entertainment. This outing is
known as a "Syrup Sop" and
when you start eating, it is so
good until it lives up to the name
as you keep wanting another
sop.
Ed and Myra are so generous
and see to it that everyone
leaves with a bottle of syrup. I
enjoyed every minute of this
time spent on a country farm
with country activity, which is
real living. I guess I'm a country
girl.
My second trip was five days
spent in north Florida where the
land still looks like Florida. I
picked up a college friend of long
ago who lives in Perry, and we
roamed around the country
roads to Mayo, Live Oak, White


helping skim the syrup, which is then served with
a country breakfast at Ed and Myra Richards
farm in Summerfield. (Ph'otos by Leta Wright)


Springs, Jasper and Madison.
We went through Taylor, LaFay-
ette, Suwannee and Hamilton
counties. We saw miles of pine
trees, forest, and cattle ranches.
We ate in the small caf6s along
the way and that was some kind
of good cooking.
We went through the Stephen
Foster Center at White Springs
which is an exciting, different
Florida attraction. The park is
dedicated in memory of the man
who made the Suwannee River
come alive. Nestled in the midst
of towering pines and moss-
draped oaks on the banks of the
Suwannee River, the park
houses a museum which shows
dioramas depicting interpreta-
tions of scenes from Foster's
best-loved songs, several pianos,
and the desk on which "Old
Folks At Home" was completed.
There is a small museum of Fos-
ter's works on display in the
lower level of the carillon tower.
The music from the tower re-
sounds throughout the park's
beautiful gardens and grounds.
Incidentally, "Old Folks At
Home" is the Florida state song.
More next week on North
Florida as I attend a historical
society meeting in the museum
in Perry which is housed in the
large State Bank of the past.
Our volunteers at the mu-
seum are making preparations
for the trolley ride in the Christ-
mas parade as Santa Claus is
coming to town Dec. 5.

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

IMS: The New Health Crisis


I think maybe it's about time to
cancel the subscription.
My friend Mary pointed out to
me an article in Bottom Line
Secrets, one of several Bottom
Line publications to which we
subscribe, entitled: "Irritable
Male Syndrome; Millions of men
have it and don't know it."
She often highlights articles
relating to my bad habits, and I
can only take a certain perverse
pride in the fact that they enjoy a
national reputation.
The only other stuff she high-
lights are recommended stock
purchases that she already has
made.
Unfortunately, she finds more
bad habit articles than smart
stock purchase stories to high-
light.
Irritable Male Syndrome,
abbreviated IMS, for we could
not exist without our innumer-
able abbreviations and acronyms,
is a term coined by a Scottish


researcher who claims to be Dr.
Gerald Lincoln. Just between you
and me, Bucky, I suspect the
name was Geraldine before the
operation, if you get my drift.
"He found that when the
testosterone levels in the animals
he was studying dropped, they
became more irritable and lethar-
gic."
So the guy was a veterinarian,
perhaps?
I am guessing that Dr. Lincoln
was a young guy who didn't
understand that becoming "more
irritable and lethargic" is not
merely a symptom, but a privi-
lege, of growing older.
The article proposes a four-
step treatment plan:
Step 1: Acknowledge that
you've got it. IMS, that is. If your
wife is always on your case,
understand that it is all your
fault. (This, incidentally, rein-
forces my belief that Gerald may
not be the name he was born


with.)
Step 2: Do vigorous exercise
for a half-hour a day: fast walk-
ing, weight lifting, stuff like that.
Excuse me ... if I'm tired and in a
foul mood already, becoming
exhausted is not exactly what I
would call progress.
Step 3: "Expand your mind"
by keeping a "thought record" of
what you are thinking when you
are being irritable and lethargic.
If you can do this while you are
jogging or lifting weights, you
can probably cop a segment on
America's Funniest Home
Videos.
Step 4: "Deepen the spirit," by
"listening to your inner voice,"
the one that tells you: "If I can
take notes while I am irritably
jogging a 10-minute ;mile, I will
become the envy of every irrita-
ble male in the neighborhood."
And there is, of course, the
inevitable self test, sort of like the
"You might be a redneck if ..."


exercises.
You might hLdr IMS if you
exhibit six or more of the follow-
ing personality trpiti:
Grumpy
Angry
Gloomy
Impatient
Lonely
Hostile
Annoyed
Touchy
Overworked
Unloved
Jealous
Stressed
As far as I can tell, the ones he
overlooked were Sneezy, Dopey
Sleepy, Bashful, Doc, and Happy.

Annual 'Magic on Main'


Can Help Downtown


We wholeheartedly agree with the deci-
sion of Bartow's Community
Redevelopment Agency to make "Magic
on Main" an annual event.
At this point, it's little more than a con-
cept; details will be worked out over a
period of months.
Bartow's first "Magic on Main" event
was held on Saturday, Nov. 19, to celebrate
the $2.8 million redesign of Main Street. It
was intended to celebrate completion of
that project, but concerns and litigation
- surrounding the structural integrity of
the old Philip's Department Store building
prompted an indefinite postponement of
the milling and resurfacing of Main Street
in the heart of downtown Bartow.
That delay did nothing to dampen the
enthusiasm of visitors who started arriv-
ing at 7 o'clock in the morning for the 'Tow
the Distance 5,000-meter run' and a short
time later for the Tour de 'Tow bicycling
event.
"Magic on Main" lasted until 10 p.m.
with street dancing in two locations.
It was an exciting event, and a celebra-
tion of community spirit and pride. It
focused attention on the heart of Bartow's
business district. Improvement of the
downtown area, as well as other property
within the CRA boundaries, is the purpose
for which the Community Redevelopment
Agency was created.
Following :a consultant's recommenda-
tions, the CRA and the Main Street organi-
zation are promoting an increasing num-
ber of downtown activities.
One Friday night a month, Festival
Friday draws Bartowans for an informal
evening of music and socializing in the 100
block of South Central Avenue. It is a con-

cept that can be expanded when the Main
Street project is finished.
Other events which draw visitors to
downtown for periods ranging from an
hour or so to two days are the Bloomin'
Arts Festival, the Fall Crafts Festival, the
Halloween parade, and the Light Up
Bartow Christmas parade and program.
Current thinking is to expand the Light
Up Bartow event into an annual "Magic on
Main," combining a street festival with the
Christmas parade and celebration of the
festive lights that were installed as part of
the Main Street redesign.
Every activity added to the Main Street
area contributes to the goal of economic
revitalization, making Bartow's Main
Street a popular destination for local resi-
dents and area visitors. An idea which is
slowly being advanced is developing high
quality housing as part of a mixed use
Main Street.
Activity breeds more activity, and mak-
ing "Magic on Main" an annual festival
can only enhance the concept that Main
Street is the place to be.

Meals on Wheels Holds Annual Meeting


Meals on Wheels's annual
meeting proved very rewarding
for the charity that provides
freshly-cooked, nutritious meals
on a daily basis for hundreds of
homebound Winter Haven and
Haines City residents.
With 150 volunteer drivers,
kitchen workers, thrift shop
clerks and board members on
hand for the meeting, Paul Wood
of the Cypresswood Golf & Coun-
try Club in Winter Haven, pre-
sented the charity's Executive
Director Kathy Lister with two
checks totaling $10,000.
More than $6,400 of this was
raised by the first-ever Cypress-
wood Charity Golf Shootout in
October, with the balance repre-
senting a donation from the fam-
ily of Cypresswood developer
John G. Wood.
The golf event also raised
funds for the Gulf Ridge Council
of the Boy Scouts of America.
Ms. Lister also acknowledged
an earlier contribution of nearly
$45,000 worth of food from
Auburndale-based Colorado
Boxed Beef by presenting the


company's project administrator
Allison Holbrook with a special
gift.
The food was turned over to
Meals on Wheels at the conclu-
sion of Colorado Boxed Beefs an-
nual Taste of Colorado vendor
exhibit this past August at the
Contemporary Resort Hotel in.
Disney World. The food came
from 60 different vendors.
Ms. Lister introduced Rev.
Jim Schwartz, of Faith Lutheran
Church in Haines City, who re-
cently spearheaded an expansion
of Meals on Wheels into Haines
City.
The Haines City program con-
tinues to sign up recipients and
recruit volunteer drivers and
kitchen workers.
In her annual report to the
board of directors, Ms. Lister
said the number of recipients
continues to increase, going from
17 per day when the program be-
gan in 1972 to more than 200 to-
day.

Move Over Act Requires

Motorists To Slow Down

When Passing Police Car


Most motorists instinctively
slow down when they see the red
and blue flashing lights of a law
enforcement vehicle, even if
they're driving within the speed
limit.
A little-noticed change in
Florida law the Move Over
Act now makes it mandatory
to do just that.
The law requires that when
approaching any law enforce-
ment or emergency vehicle, in-
cluding a wrecker, that is on the
roadside with its lights flashing,
motorists must:
SIf traveling on a four-lane or


wider highway, vacate the lane
closest to the side of the road on
which the emergency vehicle is
operating, unless directed other-
wise by a law enforcement offi-
cer.
Slow down to a speed at
least 20 miles per hour lower
than the posted limit if the speed
limit is 25 miles per hour or
higher, or slow to five miles per
hour below the posted limit if the
speed limit is 20 miles per hours
or lower, unless directed other-
wise by a law enforcement offi-
cer.

PACS System Installed


At Lakeland

Lakeland Regional Medical
Center has completed a two-year
project to install a $4.5 million
Picture Archive and Communi-
cation System (PACS).
The system allows the hospi-
tal to go completely filmless.
PACS is a computer network de-
signed for the acquisition, trans-
mission, display, storage/archiv-
ing and retrieval of digital medi-
cal images, such as CT, MRI and
ultrasound.
Less than one third of the na-
tion's hospitals are filmless.
Digital radiography technol-
ogy eliminates many of the steps
required in traditional image
filming. Technologists' produc-
tivity is increased due to the fact


Regional

that they do not have to leave
patients unattended to process
film. i
Clinicians now have complete,
real-time patient information ac-
cessible throughout the facility.
In addition the system allows
three-dimensional reconstruction
capability, which allows the user
to "strip away" unwanted por-
tions of the image and focus on
just one system. The photos may
then be rotated three-dimeiision-
ally for closer examination.
Additionally, the system al-
lows doctors and radiologists to
both view the images while in
separate locations. The system
also requires less storage, free-
ing up space in the hospital.

Seeds from

the Sower

By Michael A. Guido


Luke 2:11 is an ocean of
thought in a drop of words. It be-
gins with you and it ends with
the Lord.
It's personal: "Unto you is
born..."
It opened by eyes to the love
of God, and my heart to the God
of love.
It's profitable: "Unto you is
born this day.. a Savior."
He was. born. in. .a supernatu-
ral way, without a-human father
and without sin; fbr a Jesus born
in sin couldn't save us from our
sins.
It's pleasurable: Jesus brings
"great joy."
There are two: sides to a gift
- giving: an'd'. receiving. God
gave the "Savior bp the first
Christmas morning.
Isn't it time you received
Him?

The holidays being upon us,
you may be wondering how to
control your weight when being
tempted by turkey, pumpkin pie,
and all those other tasty treats.
If so, be prepared for plenty of
media suggestions for scaling
down that will include diet
menus, exercise, and even surgi-
cal options.
Weight loss instruction is big
business, and the public appetite
for this kind of information seems
insatiable. People in this weight
conscious world will do almost
anything to stay thin and trim.
One woman lhad her jaws
wired together to prevent eating
any solid food. Imagine the pain
and inconvenience of having to be
rewired every time you're
shocked by how many pounds
you've gained.
Some people I know have had
their stomachs surgically stapled,
cutting their capacity to take in
food. A few of these have done
well, one died, another nearly
died, and a third has had contin-
uing health problems.
A university professor, teach-
ing a class on self-management
skills, taught his students who
longed to lose weight to give up
some meaningful behavior every
time they ate more calories than
allowed in their diets. This could
be as simple as giving up a
favorite television program for a
week or two.
Another approach this profes-
sor suggested was for students to
imagine themselves at their own
funerals or bedridden by strokes
as a result of overeating.
Gross weight loss schemes like
these don't appeal to most of us.
And, thankfully, there is a better
way to achieve weight loss goals.
This better way is simply to be so
in tune with God by faith that the
fruit of His spirit is evident in our
lives every day.
What is the fruit of the Spirit?
Here is how this liberating
relationship with God is
..explained in the Bible: "The fruit
of the Sprit is love, joy, peace,
long-suffering, kindness, good-
ness, faithfulness, gentleness,
self-control." (Galatians 5:22-23)

The Messiah Association of
Polk County will present their
annual performance of Handel's
Messiah at Beymer Memorial
United Methodist Church in
Winter Haven on Sunday, Dec. 4,
from 3 to 5 p.m.
Admission is free, but a
freewill offering will be taken to

set us free.
Love is freedom from hate. Joy
is freedom from depression. Peace
is freedom from anxiety. Long-
suffering (patience) is freedom
from irritability.
Gentleness is freedom from
anger. Goodness is freedom from
sin. Faith is freedom from doubt.
Self-control is freedom from
uncontrolled appetites.
A hospital dietitian who
learned that a chapter in my book
on weight control is titled "The
Fruit That Makes You Thin"
seemed alarmed.
"What kind of fruit is this?"
she asked, apparently suspecting
I was advocating some new fruity
fad for losing weight.
"The fruit of the Spirit, which
is self-control," I replied.
"That makes sense to me," she
said, obviously relieved.
Does God really care about our
longing to win this holiday battle
of the bulge?
We can be sure that He cares
about us enough to provide
strength to overcome every temp-
tation we face (1 Corinthians
10:13).
Caring is what His love is all
about.
Remember also that the first
temptation of our Lord after 40
days alone in the desert had to do
with food (Matthew 4:1-4), and
He won.
In His strength, we can even
desert dessert and all other
things that keep us from becom-
ing what we long to be.

How Well Do We Listen?
Most of us are poor listeners because we simply cannot be
quiet long enough to really let the other person tell us what is
on their mind. Another obstacle to good listening is the seem-
ingly natural tendency to judge the other person. However,
more often than not, when someone wants to talk to us, they
really just need us to listen uncritically, and that means
accepting what they tell us at face value without judging
them. A good listener will accept the other person, and more
importantly resist the temptation to judge, criticize, or even
offer advice. For generally unless the person explicitly asks for
advice, it is usually wisest to keep your advice to yourself. The
psychologist Carl Rogers described the quality that most typ-
ified the good therapist (as well as the good listener) as.
"unconditional positive regard." That is, the good listener is
someone who regards the person positively, no matter what
they might tell them. And although in some cases this can be
extremely difficult to do, perhaps nothing comes closer to
Jesus' warning to "judge not, and you will not be judged; con-
demn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you
will be forgiven" (Luke: 6:37).

The Sovereign Lord has taught me what
to say, so that I can strengthen the weary.

by Peggy Kehoe


For such a simple thing, toast is quite versatile.
It's a good accompaniment for breakfast, a necessity for
some sandwiches, a sweet treat with jam or lots of cinna-
mon sugar, and plain, it's often the first thing that you want
to eat when you've been ill.
And if you think that toast is just toast, do a search on
the Internet and you'll find toast websites from the silly to
satirical to serious.
Here's just a few ideas to experiment with the next time
you plug in that toaster.
Spicy Cheese Toast
8 oz. cheddar cheese grated
1 oz. butter
1 tbsp. mustard
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp. vinegar
Toast
Pepper
Put cheese, butter, mustard, seasoning and vinegar in a
heavy based pan and heat very gently until creamy. Spoon
onto the toast and sprinkle over the pepper. Brown under a
hot grill. Serve as a tasty snack or supper dish.

Mushroom Toast -
Try your favorite mushrooms, or combine varieties.
Experiment and enjoy.
Wash and dry 1-1/2 pounds of mushrooms. Slice thinly.
Mix sliced mushrooms with:
4 tbsp. olive oil
4 tbsp. chopped parsley
2 to 4 minced garlic cloves.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Set aside. Melt 2-1/2 tablespoons butter in a skillet until
sizzling.
Add mushrooms to butter and saute five to eight min-
utes. Stir constantly and saut4 until the mushrooms are
just beginning to release water.
Add:
2 to 3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp. chopped cilantro or parsley
Cook over high heat for about five minutes, stirring con-
stantly.
Mound over toast and dribble pan juices over the top.
Garnish with a dash of chili powder or ground black pep-
per.
Serve immediately.

Creamed Eggs On Toast
From Inn at the Pass, Pass Christian, Miss.
6 hard-boiled eggs
2 cups well-seasoned white sauce
Sauce: (for 1 cup)
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1 cup milk
Melt butter over low heat. Blend in flour and seasonings.
Cook, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove
from heat. Stir in milk. Cook until thickened. Boil 1 minute.
Cut eggs in quarters. Add to white sauce. Serve over hot
buttered toast. Sprinkle with paprika. Garnish with parsley
sprigs and crisp bacon.

Chipped Beef On Toast
Wonderfully simple meal for those on the go. Can be
frozen in bags for a quick meal later on.
Preparation Time: 5 mins., Cook Time: 10 mins.
Servings: 2
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
1 cup 2% milk
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 pound roast beef sliced (or try deli-sliced ham)
In medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Add
flour and cook, stirring continuously, until hot. Slowly stir
in milk. Season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking
until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.
While sauce thickens, cut sliced beef into bite-sized
pieces. Add to sauce and heat through. Serve hot over slices
of toast.

All American Club Sandwich
A layered sandwich that's an all-American lunch special.
Preparation Time: 20 mins
Servings: 4
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp. Dijon-style mustard
12 slices whole wheat bread toasted
8 lettuce leaves
8 (.75-oz.) slices deli American cheese
1/2 pound thinly sliced deli ham
8 slices tomato
1/2 pound thinly sliced deli turkey breast
8 slices bacon cooked
Combine mayonnaise and mustard in small bowl; mix
well. Spread 1 teaspoon mayonnaise mixture on 1 side of
each toast slice.
To assemble each sandwich, layer 1 slice toast, mayon-
naise-side up, 1 lettuce leaf, 1 slice cheese, 2 ounces ham, 2
slices tomato, 1 slice toast, mayonnaise-side down. Spread 1
teaspoon mayonnaise on toast. Continue assembling each
sandwich with 1 slice cheese, 2 ounces turkey, 2 slices
bacon, 1 lettuce leaf and 1 slice toast, mayonnaise-side
down. Cut into triangles. Secure with toothpicks.

Banana Toast
3 ripe bananas
1/2 tsp. salt
1tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. butter
6 slices dry toast


Mash bananas; mix them with salt, sugar, lemon juice,
and butter. Spread the mixture on toast, and place it in a
hot oven (425 deg F.) for about 5 minutes. Serve hot with
cream, if desired.
