TWO PEOPLE were injured last Wednesday
morning in a crash at U.S. Highway 17 and
Crossover Road. The accident happened around
8:15 when Bonnie Stubbs, 43, of Bartow, driving a
2005 Chevrolet SUV, attempted to turn left on
Highway 17 from Crossover, according to Polk
County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Michal
Shanile Stubbs drove into the path of a southbound


2005 Ford pickup truck, and was struck, Mrs.
Shanley said. Stubbs and the driver of the truck,
Lisa Wells, 34, of Auburndale, were taken to two
separate hospitals for treatment of non-life-threat-
ening injuries, said Mrs. Shanley. (Photo by

Sale of Van Fleet Parcel



. Delayed for New Appraisal


Plans to sell a piece of city-
owned property near Wal-Mart to
a potential developer were post-
poned by the city commission for
two weeks on Monday after one
*city commissioner questioned the
price and another expressed con-
cerns over an open-ended agree-
ment to reimburse the purchaser
for costs.
Some 15 years ago Wal-Mart
gave the property, which fronts on
Van Fleet Drive, to the city to
avoid having to go through a
Development of Regional Impact
process. The conveyance carried
the restriction that the city
reserve the parcel for "recreation
and open space" use.
In March, Frontier
Development, which has done
business with Wal-Mart in the
past, asked the city for six months
to try to persuade Wal-Mart to lift
that restriction.


At Monday night's commission
meeting, City Atty. George
Dunlap presented an ordinance
that would sell the 35.5-acre par-
cel to Frontier for $96,000, after
which Frontier would negotiate
with Wal-Mart for up to two years
to allow development to take
place.
If an agreement were reached
within one year, Frontier would
then pay the city $145,000 per
acre for each developable acre of
land approximately 20 acres -
and $5,000 per acre for the bal-
ance. If the agreement were
reached within two years, but not
within one year, the property
would be reappraised.
But if Frontier reached an
agreement with Wal-Mart to lift
the restriction and then decided
not to pursue the development,
the city would have to repay the
$96,000 and pay Frontier "all


costs, fees and expenses paid or
incurred by Frontier for its acqui-
sition and ownership of the land,
including engineering fees, attor-
ney's fees, and survey costs."
Commissioner Brian Hinton
questioned the wisdom of locking
in for one year to an appraisal
that was made last May, given the
rate at which property values are
rising in Florida. He suggested
that the city get a new appraisal
before agreeing to a price.
Dunlap recommended that the
commission postpone action on
the contract for two weeks to give
the city time to get a new
appraisal.
Commissioner Andy Laurent
suggested that the contract
should set some limit on the
amount of expenses for which
Frontier could be reimbursed if it
decided not to pursue the pur-
chase.


Margaret Bowles, representing
Frontier, objected to the new
appraisal, telling the commission:
"We can't keep going back for an
appraisal every two months."
Frontier already has paid for two
appraisals for the property, she
said.
The commission voted unani-
mously to postpone action on the
contract for two weeks to get a
new appraisal.
No decision was made on set-
ting a limit on the amount of
expenses for which Frontier could
be reimbursed by the city.
The ordinance approving the
contract is scheduled to come up
again at the commission's Dec. 19
meeting. If passed then, it would
come up for a public hearing and
final action at the commission's
first meeting in January.


Lawyer's Letter To City 'Gutless,


Unprofessional,' Dunlap Says


ACLU Files Suit Challenging


'Free Speech Zone' Insurance


The American Civil Liberties
Union filed suit in federal court
on Friday challenging the Polk
County commission's require-
ment that demonstrators pur-
chase $500,000 in liability insur-
ance coverage to use the county's
"free speech zone."
The Greater Tampa chapter of
the ACLU said that the insurance
requirement "unconstitutionally
restricts freedom of speech."
The ACLU had applied to place
a 12-foot replica of the Statue of
Liberty on the grounds of the
county administration building
on Thursday, Dec. 15, to com-
memorate the 214th anniversary
of the ratification of the Bill of
Rights the first 10 amend-
ments to the United States
Constitution.
The county rejected the organi-
zation's application because it did
not purchase insurance.
"County officials are putting a
hefty price tag on free ,speech,"
said Peter Helwig, the lawyer
who filed the suit. "They're essen-
tially saying if you can't afford to
pay the half-million-dollar insur-
ance rider, you have to remain

silent. But free speech is exactly
that free and shouldn't be a
privilege of those who can afford
to pay a government-imposed
fee."
The ACLU filed the suit on
behalf of itself, the Humanist
Assn. of West Central Florida,
"and an individual who put up a
display last year," the organiza-
tion said in a press release.
The county commission voted
earlier this year to establish a
"free speech zone" on the lawn
after a Sunday school class from
Bartow's First Baptist Church
put up a Nativity scene without
the commission's consent.
Somebody else put up a "Festivus
for the Rest of Us" sign.
First Baptist Church applied
for and received a permit to put
up a display this year, and pro-
vided the insurance coverage.
The "free speech zone" rules
require the insurance coverage
and prohibit "recognized hate
speech, profanity, pornography, or
obscenity" or "commercial
speech."
The ACLU's press release said:
"Generally, free speech activi-
ties are exempt from insurance
requirements precisely because
they place undue financial bur-
dens on people and small non-
profit organizations and church-
es, limiting their right to express
themselves and chilling speech


through prior restraint by gov-
ernment."
. Last Wednesday, two days'
before the ACLU filed its suit, the
county commission rejected a pro-
posal by Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson to reduce or eliminate
'the insurance requirement for the
ACLU display.
Matthew Staver, president of
the Liberty Council, told commis-
sioners in a teleconference the he
would defend the threatened
ACLU lawsuit, but recommended
that the county reduce or elimi-
nate the insurance requirement.
He told the commission that
the $500,000 requirement "proba-
bly would be difficult to defend in
court."
He said governments may
impose reasonable "application or
administrative fees" to recover
their costs, but that courts have
said that fees "can't be excessive
... monetary limits" imposed on
freedom of expression.
The $500,000 amount was cho-
sen because that is the amount of
self-insured liability that the
county has to pay before its own
'insurance takes over, commis-
sioners said.
Florida law limits the liability
of local governments to $100,000
per injury or $200,000 per inci-
dent, but the Legislature can
approve larger awards.


Polk County commissioners
voted themselves a $1,200 a year
pay raise on Wednesday, the
maximum allowed under a pay
cut amendment to the county
charter approved by the voters
several years ago.
Their annual salaries will to
from $36,372 to $37,572, an
increase of about 3.3 percent.
Under the pay cut amend-
ment, commissioners' salaries


were cut in half, and future rais-
es may not exceed the increase in
the Consumer Price Index or the
average raise given other county
employees, whichever is less.
The vote to increase salaries
by $1,200 was unanimous, and
came at the end of an all-day
commission meeting that
stretched into the early evening.
There was no public comment
at a hearing held on the raise.

A heated debate between City
Atty. George Dunlap and Brent
Geohagan, a lawyer representing
John and Terry Frost in a land
use lawsuit against the city, Went
into its .-e::rnd. round Monday
night.
At the commission's Nov. 21
meeting, Geohagan told the com-
mission that a city staff member
- he said it was not Dunlap -
had told at least one city commis-
sioner not to discuss zoning
issues with citizens outside of
commission meetings.
Dunlap replied that he dis-
agrees with Geohagan's interpre-
tation of state law regarding dis-
cussion of quasi-judicial actions
with members of the public.
"In my opinion, it's a viola-
tion," he said.
Dunlap said he has told city
commissioners that they have
the right to refuse to discuss zon-
ing issues Wvith their con-
stituents.
Geohagan and Dunlap contin-
ued to argue the issue at the Nov.
21 meeting until Mayor Leo
Longworth pounded his gavel
and told Geohagan to be silent.
Two days later, Geohagan sent
a three-page letter to Dunlap cit-
ing the law which he says allows


citizens to discuss zoning issues
with individual city commission-
ers. He sent copies to the city
commissioners.
At Monday 'afternoon's work
session, Dunlap turned 'to
Geohagan, seated in the audi-
ence, and told him it was -gut less
and unprofessional not to call me
and tell me ,hat you puLL in the-
.etter.
"It was unprofessional to copy
my client; these guys are my
client.
"It was just plain ignorant and
uninformed."
Dunlap told the commission
he would make no more respons-
es to Geohagan's position.
"We will never see eye to eye,"
he said.
Geohagan made no response
to Dunlap's comments on
Monday. Audience comments
usually are discouraged at work
sessions.
In his letter, Geohagan told
Dunlap: "I was disheartened by
your misplaced and, as you must
have realized, nonresponsive
comments ... during the city
commission meeting, as well as
by the tone and demeanor
through which you presented and
directed your comments to me.
"I am still utterly confused as
to why you chose to lash out at
me through the veil of a 're-
sponse' to a comment on my part


that I honestly made to specifi-
cally ensure that no one would
ever speculate as to whether you
were the city staff member that I '
was told recently directed -at.
least one commissioner either not
to speak to citizens regarding
land use matters or. that; such
u..omrnUpications are inappropri-
a te ." .. ..... .
He said that as lawyers "we
are involved in issues :that are
contentious by nature, but it's
what we do and, as much as pos-
sible, it should never become per-
sonal."
Geohagan quoted from Florida
Statutes Section 286: "In a quasi-
judicial proceeding on local gov-
ernment land use matters, a per-
son may not be precluded from
communicating directly with a
member of the decisionmaking
body by application of ex parte
communication prohibitions."
At Monday's work session,
Dunlap said anyone who wishes
to be notified by e-mail of pend-
,ing zoning actions can contact
the city clerk's office to be put on
the e-mail list.
"I agree it's ridiculous" to mail
notice of pending zoning actions
only to neighbors within 150 feet
of the affected piece of property,
he said.
Asked by commissioners about
posting signs on property on
which rezoning is pending, he


said Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers told him that in
Orlando, where he worked before
coming to Bartow, there was a
problem with theft of the signs.
"I think we've got a pretty
good system," Dunlap said,
adding that the public has plenty
of time to comment on zoning
issues.
A committee made up of
Commissioner Brian Hinton,
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge, and
Dunlap was appointed at the
commission's last meeting to con-
sider when the public should be
allowed to speak on zoning
issues.
At present, the city code
requires a public hearing when a
zoning issue comes before the
zoning board, and another public
hearing when an ordinance is
considered on second (final) read-
ing by the commission.
A public hearing is not
required on first reading, and the
commission's policy has varied on
whether or not members of the
audience are allowed to speak
when a vote is taken on first
reading.
The matter of communication
between the public and individ-
ual commissioners on pending
zoning matters is part of the
same issue.


Chamber Nearing 700th Membership


As 2005 draws near its close,
the Greater Bartow Chamber of
Commerce is approaching its
700th membership into the eco-
nomic development organization.
"With more members we have
a stronger chamber," Jeff Clark,
executive director of the Bartow
Chamber, said, referring to the
accelerated growth of Bartow and
the surrounding communities.
Ribbon-cuttings, groundbreak-
ings, and other business events
are at an all-time high.
"This is a wonderful time in
Bartow to become a chamber
member," Clark said. "We have
had more this year than ever
before."
The Greater Bartow Chamber
of Commerce started out as the
Bartow Board of Trade in 1887.
Some of its present members
have been listed with the cham-
ber since 1924.
Boswell and Dunlap, LLP, has
been a member of the Bartow
Chamber for more than 80 years.
"I, myself, am partial to the
chamber," said Chuck Bentley,
attorney with the established
Bartow law firm. "One of the ben-
efits is feeling connected with the
community and supporting the
community that supports us. It's
kind of a reciprocal relationship."
The mission of the chamber is
to promote business and econom-
ic development for the benefit of


the community.
The chamber's many projects
are possible because it pools and
pulls together the resources and
talent inherent in the business
community. It also partners with
member companies to improve
the community's quality of life
and impact economic develop-
ment.
Some of its projects include
promoting education in Bartow.
Its Education Committee, made
up of area principals and educa-
tors, implements the Just Say No
event that encourages children to
say no to drugs. Its Leadership
program, one of the best in the
state, maintains and strengthens
the business environment by
encouraging leadership, business
education, and sound ethical
business practices.
This year's leadership class
has almost 40 members.
The Bartow Chamber has
always had a good working rela-
tionship with governmental offi-
cials, promoting communications
to support or oppose legislation at
all levels,-respective to the mem-
bership.
For the last three years, it
played host to one of 14 Regional
Legislative Updates presented by
the Florida Chamber of
Commerce. Neighboring cham-
bers were invited to attend the OJ
Breakfast that featured a review


of the legislative session, an
overview of upcoming issues, as
well as a question and answer
period.
The Florida Chamber


remarked that Bartow's
Legislative Update was one of the
best in the state last year.

THE GREATER BARTOW CHAMBER of Commerce imple-
mented a special membership recruitment program in October, with
prizes provided by the chamber and Spath Jewelers as an incentive to
bring in new members. Winners from the chamber's two membership
committees, the Ambassadors and the Can-Do Club, were presented
with jewelry. Linda Holcomb (left) of The Polk County Democrat, was
the top salesperson for the Can-Do Club, and Karen Wheeler of
Comcast Cable was the winner from the Ambassadors. (Chamber

Workshops Se
Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief
financial officer, has announced
a series of town hall workshops
to give employers and employees
an update on the state's workers'
' compensation system and to an-
swer questions about recent rate
reductions.
The Division of Workers'
Compensation (DWC) is located
within the Department of Finan-
cial Services which Gallagher
oversees.
"Meaningful reforms, more
aggressive investigation of work-
ers' compensation fraud and
compliance efforts have led to
dramatic savings for Florida's
businesses," Gallagher said. "But
we must continue to improve the
system for our small businesses
and our workers."
Gallagher spearheaded the
passage of Senate Bill 50A in
2003 that reformed the state's


workers' compensation system,
including tougher penalties for
workers' compensation fraud
and premium evasion. This
year's decrease in workers' com-
pensation insurance rates will be
the third consecutive drop in
rates since the bill's passage, for
a total savings of nearly $1 bil-
lion since 2003.
The workshops will be held:
Tuesday, Dec. 13, in Fort My-
ers, Florida Gulf Coast Univer-
sity, student union ballroom,
10501 FGCU Boulevard, South.
Wednesday, Dec. 14, in
Tampa, Embassy Suites, USF/
Busch Gardens, 3705 Spectrum
Boulevard.
Thursday, Dec. 15, City of Or-
lando, City Hall council chamber
room, second floor, 400 South
Orange Avenue.
All of the sessions will take
place from 6 to 8 p.m.

In partnership-with the Polk
Community Traffic Safety Team
and local law enforcement agen-
cies, the Polk County Sheriffs
Office will be conducting special
DUI enforcement operations dur-
ing this holiday season to iden-
tify and arrest impaired drivers.
The effort is part of Florida's
"You Drink and Drive, You Lose"
DUI enforcement mobilization.
: "Before you have one more for
the road, keep in mind that local
law enforcement will be out in
force targeting drunk 'drivers
this holiday season," Sheriff
Grady Judd said. "Last year, 26
innocent lives, were lost during
the Christmas and New Year
holidays, due to alcohol-related
traffic deaths in Florida.
;'"We pledge to do our part to
reduce impaired driving and
save lives, and we will do every-
thing in our power to insure that

'If You Have To Ask,


It Ain't Right'


Circuit Judge Ralph Artiglire has
embarked on a, quest, for professionalism
in the practice of law, both inside the court-
room and out..
His theme: "Florida's 10th Judicial
Circuit --.Where Professionalism Is a
Priority.", .
It is a noble quest, and he is an eloquent
proponent.
In a speech to the Bartow Rotary Club,
he said that,only 18 percent of.Americans
rank the honesty and ethical standards of
lawyers as, either, "high" or "extremely
high."' A generation or two ago, to boast
that one's, son or son-in-law was a lawyer
,(women in the practice of law were a rari-
ty then) was,a powerful boast indeed.
That is,no longer the case.
As journalists, we can identify with that
"fall from grace." Public respect for jour-
nalists is somewhere in the same neighbor-
,hood.
SArtiglire and, some of his associates
teach classes on proper conduct for
lawyers.
'It's -iot, a easy subject .to deal with,". he
said.
-Judges who require courtesy of the liti-
gants who practice before them, and who
call to task.thqse who fall short of the
mark,, may Jexr"Jealiation .L._tbe ext elec-1
tionp or when they seekjl.ea.tion to a high-
er court, he said,., ,
We find it troubling that someone in a
position as powerful as a county or circuit
judge would be reluctant to use that
power in the, quest for .,,more,civil legal..
system. .Butf e, respect Artiglire for his
!candor. ,,. ,
, One of the unique .opportunities of the
press is to, interview candidates seeking
our en. qrsemenr .for judgeships (though
most are now appointed by the,,Governor
and seldom[ fce the voters). After con-
ducting interviews for more than 40 years,
* we find it easy to raise the issue of judicial
-temperament -T robe-itis, as it is known in
,V


.Nw lw-b
.46 4 -.

.b -AN.


the trade.
Any number of judicial candidates have
asked us to call their hand if, as judges,
they should become arrogant. A couple of
times, we have done so. One of them actu-
ally thanked us.
"Nobody every told me that," he said.
And therein lies the problem.
Few lawyers indeed, few judges -
will call aside a judge whose position and
power have gone to his or her head and
diplomatically suggest that a trace of
humility might improve his or her
demeanor on the bench.
What most impressed us about
Artiglire's approach is his three-part test
for lawyers and judges.
It is a test that can be applied by anyone
in any vocation:
"If it ain't right, don't do it.
"If it ain't true, don't say it.
"If you have to ask, it ain't right."
We are reminded of the words of a for-
mer city attorney, advising city commis-
sioners of their obligations under Florida's
Government in the Sunshine Law when it
was enacted several decades ago:
"If you think you're cheating, you prob-
ably are."
Artiglire said it even simpler:
'If you have to ask, it ain't right."

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

'We Band of Brothers'


It is not a scientifically valid
study, but in my military career of
32 years (two years in the active
Army, 30 years in the Florida
Army National Guard) I formed
this opinion of military lifestyles:
Naval officers live better
than their colleagues in the other
services.
Naval enlisted people have a
more rugged life than their coun-
terparts in the land and above-
land forces.
Air Force enlisted people
live substantially better than their
land and water-based comrades.
Air Force officers have a
greater sense of camaraderie with
their enlisted associates than
members of the other services.
Marines of every rank think
they're tougher than their compa-
triots in the other services ... and
they're probably right.
Army? Well, that was me.
(I?) Army officers live okay, but
nothing .like the Navy. Enlisted
soldiers live okay, better than
sailors, but nothing like the Air


Force. Army officers and enlisted
soldiers develop close bonds, but
not on as universal a basis as
some of the other services.
Last Friday, Mary and I and
about half the population of
Bartow attended the retire-
ment ceremony for A. J. Jackson
at MacDill Air Force Base. To the
Navy, he's Rear Admiral (Upper
Half) John Adrian Jackson, U. S.
Navy Reserve, Retired. As a two-
star flag officer, he holds the high-
est rank that a Reserve Forces
officer can hold.
That never went to his head,
and to his friends, he's still A. J.
His proudest recognition was
being made an honorary master
chief petty officer. Another dis-
tinction: at his retirement, he was
the "Silver Falcon," the senior (or
as he put it, the oldest) Naval
Reserve aviator.
I have been to a few Army
National Guard retirement cere-
monies, including one or two for
two-star generals, and A. J.'s
send-off only reinforces my opin-


ion of the life that Naval officers
live. The Navy knows how to put
you out to pasture in style.
But for all the ceremony, the
most impressive part for me was
A. J.'s retirement speech.
His theme was taken from
William Shakespeare's Henry the
Fifth:
"We few, we happy few, we
band of brothers."
Recalling his military career,
from a second lieutenant flying
planes really old planes at
Naval Station Rota, Spain, to his
final assignment as deputy direc-
tor (mobilization) for strategy,
plans and policy at U. S. Central
Command, he made repeated ref-
erence to his "band of brothers."
He said that he often was
asked why he pursued a career as
a military reserve officer when he
had a "day. job" as a pilot for
American Airlines.
His reply: his civilian career
lacked something that he found,
in the military: a sense of pur-
pose, and another circle of


friends, his "band of brothers."
It is a sense of satisfaction
found only in military circles. I
experienced it as a Florida
National Guard officer.
Every member of the armed
forces takes an oath to obey "the
orders of the officers appointed
over me thousands upon
thousands of people they have
never met even if that means
they risk death. Imagine a corpo-
rate job application form that car-
ried that stipulation, A. J. said.
But members of the armed
forces, both active and Reserve,
take that oath and live by that
standard.
They we enjoy that sense
of camaraderie: "We few, we
happy few, we band of brothers."
In the receiving line following
his "piping over the side," I told
him:
"A. J., thanks for explaining to
Mary why I spent 30 years in the
Florida National Guard."

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

An Open and Shut Case


Every time I bring things home
from the store'or order something
through the mail, I curse the per-
son who designed the ever-
changing packaging
I can curse if I want to. My dog
doesn't understand !@#$%^&*(.
Most everything is encased in
its own little plastic coffin, imper-
vious to what is going on in the
real world. Why? Surely there is a
reason for it. I think maybe the
plastic people do it on purpose
and charge more.
Tried to open a toothbrush
lately? It's enough to make you


grind your teeth. And tooth-
paste? Toothpaste used to come
in a tube that one could roll up
starting at the end and it would
stay put. Now it' returns to the
original shape of the tube and
you can't tell how much, if any, is
left.
I regret to report that my
favorite brand that guarantees a
dazzling smile that will blind
oncoming traffic when driving at
night now comes in those
!@#$%^ tubes.
I keep a pair of pliers handy in
my bathroom to open mouth-


wash bottles with the big black
screw cap that you have to pinch
hard 'at two arrows to get it open.
I can just see the person who
designed that giggling maniacal-
ly when he sold that.
Another complaint about
packaging -- paper tissues in
pretty little square boxes that will
fit in just anywhere. Remember
when tissues actually used to pop
up one at a time? Now it's a sur-
prise if you can get two or three at
a time. I think they are doing this
on purpose. I am convinced that
the last 20 or 30 tissues at the bot-

tom of the box are welded togeth-
er in some evil pre-planned way.
They come out in a lumpy ball
that looks like it was hit out of the
ballpark.There are fewer tissues,
to begin with, and I'm sure the
profits from this little gem are
extraordinary. Where is Little
Lulu? She used to be the hallmark
for pop up tissues.
Worst of all are the over-the-
counter medications for ailments
like stopped-up sinuses, diges-
tive problems, vitamins, and glue
sticks for repairing whatever got
broken while attempting to open
this nightmare aggravation.
I could just scream!
To add your complaint to this
barbaric torture, send it to
pbsims@juno.com and we will
try to work up a class action suit
with one of those lawyers who
advertise on television.

the Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce and
will culminate at the Chamber's Annual Meeting
on Saturday, Jan. 21. The theme for the event is
"Treasures of the Chamber." Beware Bartow
Chamber members, as you might be the next in
line to be raided, plundered and charged a hand-
some fee. To avoid walking the plank, you may
contact Neal Duncan at the Chamber (533-7116)
to sign up for a more dignified ransom. New pi-
rate crew members from Citrus and Chemical
Bank (from left) are: Pam Perdue-Mitchell, Myr-
tice Young, Jordan, Gail Smith, Fitz Sthreshley,
Anita Stasiak and.Kathryn Stilley. By giving Jor-
dan a contribution for his treasure chest they
avoided a trip to Davy Jones' Locker. (Chamber

New Program Brings Florida

Produce To Warehouse Clubs


Florida and PriceSmart, Inc.,
will work together to feature
Florida agricultural products in
several of the company's Central
American and Caribbean ware-
house clubs.
The marketing program is
part of the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services effort to help Florida
growers expand into markets fol-
lowing the recent adoption of the
Central American Free Trade
Agreement, or CAFTA-DR.
The agreement relaxes trade
barriers between the United
States and the Central American
nations of Costa Rica, El Salva-
dor, Guatemala, Honduras and
Nicaragua, and the Caribbean
nation of the Dominican Repub-
lic.
"Our department is taking the
lead to help Florida agricultural
producers benefit from this trade
agreement," Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "By researching mar-
kets and initiating contacts, we
can help our state's growers un-
lock the potential for increased
sales in this region."
Members of the department's
marketing staff are now in Cen-
tral America to finalize the logis-
tics for the PriceSmart promo-
tion and conduct market re-
search.
PriceSmart operates clubs in
11 countries and one U.S. terri-
tory in Central America and the
Caribbean.
These U.S.-style, member-
ship-only warehouse clubs fea-
ture a wide range of consumer
goods, including fresh produce
and other food products.
With more than 400,000
members in the region, the chain
serves a clientele that is growing

Chamber

(Continued from Page 1)
In 2006, Bartow will be pre-
sented through a high-quality
magazine produced by the
Bartow Chamber. In it, all of the
chamber members will have a
listing. A history and basic infor-
mation on Bartow will be fea-
tured, as well as contact numbers
for schools and government.
Anyone wishing to be included
in the magazine need only join
the chamber.
"Any reputable business is
invited to become a member of
the Bartow Chamber and have
their business information listed
in the publication," Neal Duncan,
membership director, said.
Duncan may be reached by
calling 533-7125.

in size and affluence.
The pilot marketing program
includes a variety of Florida
commodities that will be fea-
tured in store displays and
through product demonstrations.
The clubs will increase their
orders of Florida products in ad-
vance of the promotions to han-
dle the anticipated boost in
sales.
"We are committed to helping
our state's growers understand
the markets and increase their
exports," Brnsori said. "This
will help Florida secure its place
as a major supplier to the large-
scale commercial buyers in this
region."
Bronson said it is important
for Florida's agriculture industry
to be vigorous in its marketing
initiatives to help avoid adverse
consequences similar to the
North American Free Trade
Agreement (NAFTA) which was
adopted in 1994.
"Some of our agricultural
product sectors were hit hard by
the effects NAFTA and are still
suffering a decade later," Bron-
son said., "We want this latest
trade agreement to yield positive
results for Florida, and we will
work with our growers toward
.that end."
Bronson said that the Central
American and Caribbean mar-
keting initiative also will help
Florida producers as they strug-


gle to get back on their feet fol-
lowing the devastation caused by
Hurricane Wilma in October.
"Many of Florida's agricul-
tural producers replanted crops
that were destroyed in the field
by Wilma," Bronson said. "How-
ever, these later harvests will
put Florida's growers in a mar-
ket filled with competitors,
which will suppress the prices
they receive for their products.
Faced with these obstacles, we
need to continuously expand into
new markets and work to pro-
vide Florida growers with every
possible marketing advantage."
This international marketing
initiative is part of the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services' ongoing
"Fresh from Florida" campaign,
an identification and promo-
tional program designed to boost
the image of Florida agriculture
and increase sales by helping
consumers to easily identify
Florida products at retail stores.
The "Fresh from Florida" pro-
gram also helps increase public
awareness of the importance of
Florida's agriculture industry,
which generates $7 billion in
farm receipts yearly and has an
annual overall economic impact
estimated at $62 billion.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone for their thoughts,
prayers, cards, phone calls, visits, flowers, and all the food
that was prepared during our time of sorrow for the loss of
our mother and father, Arthur and Billie Smith. We knew
that our parents were loved by numerous people, but never
could have imagined how many lives have been touched by
them as reflected by the sheer number of people who at-
tended the services last week. This represented a true
testimony to their lives and the life they lived for Jesus. As
indicated during the Wednesday service, if your life has
been touched by Arthur and Billie Smith, we request you to
"Pass it on" to someone else. Always remember their faith
in God and that they passed away together doing what they
loved to do, "fishing" Again, thank you for all the acts of
goodness that were displayed for Mom and Dad.

With our deepest love,
The family of Arthur and Billie Smith

Downed channel markers,
blown away speed zone signs,
and migrating manatees are
some of the hazards boaters may
face in the coming winter boat-
ing season. While removing un-
derwater navigational hazards
and replacing signs destroyed by
past hurricanes may take
months to correct, the speed
zones that those signs mark will
still be in effect.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission officers,
assisted by more than 30 local
police marine units from around
the state, were out in force Dec.
3 and 4 for Operation Slow
Speed to make sure winter boat-
ers know the rules. Just because
a speed zone 'sign is down,
doesn't mean boaters can ignore
the rules.
Deaths for Florida boaters are
nearing record highs. With one
month left in the year, FWC offi-
cials are hoping this law enforce-
ment and educational effort will
keep boating safety in the minds
of all boaters.
Through Nov. 12 of this year,
72 boaters have died on our wa-
terways. In 2003, Florida led the
nation in boating deaths with 64,
and last year we had 68. Most of
them were preventable.
The FWC has keyed on three
core boating safety messages
this year: stay alert, wear your
life jacket and don't drink and
operate a boat. The agency says
keeping these messages in mind
dramatically decreases your
chances of getting into an acci-
dent and increases your chances
of survival if you do.
Gov. Jeb Bush again pro-
claimed November as Manatee
Awareness Month. Through Oc-
tober of this year. 341 manatees
have died statewide. 63 by wa-
tercraft. Despite increased
manatee activity and a shortage


of properly marked speed zones,
the FWC hopes to head off the
threat of significantly increased
manatee mortality this winter
through frequent patrols and by
calling public attention to the is-
sue.
As manatees move toward
warm water winter refuges,
boaters can help manatees have
a safe migration by:
Staying in marked chan-
nels.
Wearing polarized sun-
glasses to improve vision.
Learn and abiding by posted
or mapped boat speed zones
For more information about
manatees, visit MyFWC.com/
manatee.

Learn About The New USDA Guidelines


By the American Institute
for Cancer Research
For years, the American Insti-
tute for Cancer Research (AICR)
has recommended eating an
abundance of vegetables and
fruits, exercising daily and main-
taining a healthy weight to lower
your cancer risk.
Now the federal government
emphasizes a good diet and exer-
cise for cancer prevention more
than ever before. Dietary Guide-
lines for Americans 2005 (www.
healthierus.gov/dietaryguide-
lines), released by the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture in Janu-
ary 2005, mention cancer as one
of the chronic diseases that a
healthy diet and lifestyle can
help prevent.
These guidelines are revised
every five years.
A major change in the latest
version will help achieve the goal
of cancer prevention.
It is the advice to eat nine
servings a day of vegetables and
fruits as part of a 2,000-calorie-
a-day diet. Previously, the rec-
ommendation was five to nine
servings, but people thought of
five as the goal, not the mini-
mum, because the old guidelines
stressed at least five a day.
In making this change, the
2005 Dietary Guidelines Advi-
sory Committee Report acknowl-
edges the importance of AICR's
expert report, Food, Nutrition
and the Prevention of Cancer: a
global perspective.
AICR's report, based on thou-
sands of scientific studies, sug-
gests eating a range of five to 10
servings of vegetables and fruits
a day.
In support of the dietary
guidelines' new goal, the Advi-
sory Committee also mentioned
the Iowa Women's Health Study,


an ongoing, large study, which
showed that adherence to the
recommendations in AICR's ex-
pert report produced a 22 per-
cent decrease in cancer inci-
dence.
A Health Revolution
An increase in vegetable and
fruit consumption is just one of
the important changes that the
new dietary guidelines call for.
Like AICR, the guidelines rec-
ognize how serious a problem
overweight and obesity have be-
come, increasing the risk of dia-
betes, cancer and other chronic
diseases.
To live longer, healthier lives,
the Guidelines say that "many
Americans must make signifi-
cant changes in their eating hab-
its and lifestyles."
Other changes include: bal-
ancing calorie intake with en-
ergy output, exercising moder-
ately to vigorously 60 minutes a
day to prevent weight gain in
adulthood, consuming three
servings of whole .grains daily,
getting most of your fat from
sources of polyunsaturated and
monounsaturated fatty acids
(fish, nuts and vegetable oils),
and choosing foods and bever-
ages with little added sugar or
other caloric sweeteners, includ-
ing high-fructose corn syrup.
To incorporate the new recom-
mendations into your diet, the
Dietary Guidelines mention the
DASH (Dietary Approaches to
Stop Hypertension) eating plan
and the new USDA Food Guide
as two possible options to follow.
Another option is AICR's New
American Plate eating style
(www.aicr.org/publications/nap).
This easy-to-remember ap-
proach lets you fill your plate
with two-thirds (or more) vegeta-
bles, fruits, whole grains and
beans. The other one-third or

75&h Anniversary Nuggets

The Polk County Democrat

After two years of working at The Democrat in an
unpaid capacity, Loyal Frisbie was accepted for
enrollment at Florida Southern College in 1933.
He had been home-schooled by his mother, who mistrust-
ed the public school system, and without a high school
diploma, he found his academic options limited. The
country was going through the Great Depression, and
money for college tuition was scarce. Loyal's father, Lloyd
Frisbie, traded out his son's tuition by doing the college's
commercial printing without charge. In 1937, Loyal gradu-
ated at the head of his class with a B. A. degree in
Spanish, because Southern did not offer enough journal-
ism courses for a major in that field. In fact, in order to
qualify for a minor in journalism, he was given a few
hours of academic credit in that discipline for having been
editor of the college newspaper, The Southern, for two-
and-a-half years. It always stuck in his craw that his aca-
demic credit for that work was given with a grade of "C."
