2 Men Found Dead Thursday


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Thursday proved busy for police and crime scene
investigators in Bartow, with two dead bodies found
in different areas of town.
That morning around 10:30, a city employee
doing maintenance work discovered a man hanging
from a tree in a wooded area about 200 yards west
of Wal-Mart.
The man had been there for quite some time
before he was found, detectives said.
He has yet to be positively identified.


Rumors that the death was part of some gang
initiation were denied by detectives, who believe
the cause was suicide.
Later that day, around 2:21 p.m., police were
called to the 1400 block of East Davidson Street
after CSX railroad workers saw a man lying in the
bushes some 20 feet west of the railroad tracks.
The lack of obvious injuries indicated to detec-
tives that he had not been hit by a train.
He was identified as 37-year-old Mark Aaron
Smith, who recently moved to Bartow from
Virginia, and was staying at the Budget Inn.
Police are awaiting toxicology reports to deter-
mine his cause of death.

Union Contract, Griffin Road


Subdivision, On Tonight's Agejada


Two contentious issues the
general employees labor union
contract and the Duane
McQuillen subdivision on E.F.
Griffin Road will go before the
city commission for decisions
tonight.
The city and AFL-CIO Local
1010 are at impasse on the labor
contract that covers all unionized
employees except police officers
and firefighters.
The major issue has been the
union's effort to get language in
the contract letting city employ-
ees take complaints to city com-
missioners. The present contract
requires employees to deal with
the city manager or his designee.
The city also wants to change
the way it pays holiday pay, vaca-
tion pay, and sick leave. The city
wants those benefits to be paid as
straight time. At present, those
benefits are counted as hours
worked, and sometimes are paid
at overtime rates.
The city has proposed a three-


percent pay raise, to take effect
Jan. 1. In past contracts, pay rais-
es have taken effect on Oct. 1, the
first day of the city's fiscal year.
The union opted to argue its
position before the city commis-
sion, rather than calling in a spe-
cial master.
Under Florida law, the elected
body in this case, the city com-
mission has the last word on
all public employee union con-
tracts.
The commission will conduct a
public hearing on an ordinance to
establish R-1-3A zoning on a 24.2-
acre subdivision on E.F. Griffin
Road. The zoning board dead-
locked 2-to-2 on approval of the
development last week, with one
member declaring a conflict of
interests.
McQuillen, a Lakeland home-
builder, has reduced the number
of homes he proposes to put on
the site from 58 to 41 in response
to neighbors, who want the city to
require one-acre homesites in the


area.
The commission will hold a
work session this afternoon at
5:30, and will reconvene at 6:30
for its regular business meeting.
Other items on the agenda:
Announcement of a closed
meeting with lawyers regarding
the lawsuit filed by John and
Terry Frost, challenging the
Silver Companies development
between U.S. Highway 98 at E.F.
Griffin Road.
Appointments to the historic
architecture review board and the
board of adjustment.
Public hearings and final
passage of ordinances to:
(1) Assign low density residen-
tial land use classification to a
14.2-acre parcel of land on Lyle
Parkway.
(2) Assign industrial land use
classification to the recently-
annexed citrus processing plant
on State Road 60 West.
(3) Annex the .39 of an acre on
which the Log Cabin Lounge is


located on U.S. Highway 17,
North, designate it for 'commer-
cial land use, and zone it C-2
(community commercial).
(4) Rezone 4.41 acres of proper-
ty immediately north of the Log
Cabin Lounge from C-3 (highway
commercial) to C-2 (community
commercial).
First reading of ordinances
to:
(1) Sell 35.487 acres of city-
owned land near Wal-Mart to
Frontier Bartow, LLP.
(2) Authorize a cable TV fran-
chise with Bright House
Networks.
(3) Sell a city-owned house at
800 Woodlawn Ave. to David and
Julie Hebb.
Adoption of resolutions to:
(1) Amend the 2005-06 city
budget.
(2) Accept for maintenance the
improvements in Laurel
Meadows Phase II.


Contractors To Review BMA Terminal


Numbers; Revised Bids Due Wednesday


Bidders for the new terminal
building planned at Bartow
Municipal Airport will have to
rework their numbers before the
airport authority can award a
contract.
' The two contractors, Semco
Construction, Inc., and ACI
Construction Services, Inc., were
asked by Airport Mgr. Cynthia
Barrow to reevaluate their bids.
The lower bid came in nearly $2
million higher than the engi-
neer's estimate.
Semco's bid for the terminal
was $8.2 million, and ACI's was


$7.6 million.
URS Corp., the airport's engi-
neering firm, estimate for the job
was $5.7 million.
The city commission meeting
as the airport authority, wants
the two bidders to compare their
itemized price breakdowns with
the line item estimates by the
engineer.
"Several prices stand out com-
pared to the engineer's," Mrs.
Barrow said. "It would be in the
best interest of the airport to let
(the contractors) look at the dif-
ferences."


The contractors must come
back with their revised bids by 2
p.m. Wednesday. However, the
90-day clock for proceeding with
the project remains with the orig-
inal bidding deadline of Dec. 8.
The new 18,000-square foot
terminal will be a one-story
structure at the apex of two run-
ways, with a small two-story sec-
tion near the center for air condi-
tioning air handlers. A kitchen
and restaurant will occupy 3,950-
square feet of the building.
Who will lease and operate the
restaurant is still undecided.
Chris Scott, who, along with
his wife, owns the present airport
restaurant Kathy's, Too, has


expressed interest in the space,
but has failed to make a propos-
al, Mrs. Barrow said.
Scott was asked to present his
offer last week, but didn't attend
the meeting. He has attended
several previous airport authori-
ty meetings.
"I've just refused to call him
again," Mrs. Barrow said. "He
says he's interested, but that's all
we have at this point."
Also at the meeting, the
authority unanimously approved
a lease with Florida Aircraft
Painting of Bartow, Inc., for a pri-
mary term of 15 years and seven
months, with two 10-year
options; at $1,177.72 per month.


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

Life came full circle for Rear
Admiral John Adrian Jackson -
known to his friends as A.J. as
he celebrated his retirement from
the Navy Reserve on Dec. 9 at
MacDill Air Force Base, which
was home to many of the planes
that fascinated him as a young
boy as they flew over his nearby
home.
General John P. Abizaid, com-
mander of U.S. Central
Command, shared the stage to
honor RADM Jackson, who was
assigned as Deputy Director (M)
for Strategy, Plans, and Policy,
U.S. Central Command on Sept.
1, 2001, only a week before
September 11.
General Abizaid, after some
good-natured Army/Navy rib-
bing, praised RADM Jackson
highly, saying that he wished he
were promoting RADM Jackson
rather than celebrating his
retirement.
As a two-star flag officer,
RADM Jackson holds the highest
rank that a member of the
National Guard or Reserve can
hold.
Many military personnel
attended the ceremony, including
the Georgia National Guard
Band from Moody Air Force Base
and Commander Mark Todd from
the Royal Australian Navy, who
played bagpipes outside before
the ceremony.
Australia was not the only
country represented. Other for-
eign military officers were from
countries including Britain,
Kenya, Russia, New Zealand,
and Pakistan.
In his job at CENTCOM,
RADM Jackson was liaison with
senior military officers from
other nations committed to the
Global War on Terror.
RADM Jackson entered
Aviation Officer Candidate
School in 1970, and was desig-
nated a Naval aviator in 1972.
He transferred to the Navy
Reserve in 1978, and has been
one of the most active members
during that time.
Last year, he served 225 days
on active, said General Abizaid.
He logged more than 5,500
flight hours in eight different
types of Navy aircraft.
Speaking to a crowed of fellow
members of the armed forces and
dozens of friends from Bartow
who drove to Tampa for the
retirement ceremony, RADM


Jackson spoke about the chal-
lenges of maintaining a balance'
in the Reserve between family, a
job in the business world, and the
military.
He said there is a saying in
the military, which he cleaned up
slightly for polite consumption: If
you're doing your job right, all
three are mad at you, he said.
Whenever he was asked by his
friends, "Why continue? You have
a job," he said that what he had
missed the brotherhood of the
military.
He quoted a passage from
Shakespeare's play Henry V, in
which King Henry is speaking to
his troops at the Battle of
Agincourt, calling them:"'We few,
we happy few, we band of broth-
ers."
Military employment is more
than a job because of this sharing
of values and brotherhood, he
said.
His father found this brother-
hood when he served aboard the
USS Coffman DE-191 from 1943
to 1945.
RADM Jackson has found it
everywhere in his service in the
Navy, from early days as an avia-
tor to the joint staff assignments,
he said.
He closed by asking the young
officers in attendance to remem-
ber this, and reminded them that
head a unique opportunity to
impact people's lives. He said
that the next -time they swear in


a new service member, they
should think about what they
will do for him or her.
After his remarks, he was pre-
sented with the American flag
flying during the ceremony.
RADM Jackson was also given
a two-star rear admiral flag in
honor for his service. Ironically,
his father had taken a rear admi-
ral's flag from his ship when he
ended his service in World War
II, never imagining that his son
would one day hold that rank.
At the close of the event, he
participated in the long-standing
Navy tradition of ",piping
ashore," in which he asked per-
mission to go ashore for the last
time in a symbolic ceremony.
Foreign officers formed a double
row and saluted as he left the
auditorium.
RADM Jackson's awards
include the Legion of Merit,
Meritorious Service Medal, and
Navy Commendation Medal. He
is also an honorary master chief
petty officer, and at the time of
his retirement, was the "Silver
Falcon," the senior-most Navy
Reserve aviator.
He also has been inducted into
the Bartow High School Hall of
Fame.
RADM Jackson works as a
Boeing 777 captain with
American Airlines in his civilian
life. His wife, Jan, is a retired
American Airlines flight atten-
dant.

An unidentified man was
killed Saturday in a three-vehi-
cle accident on U.S. Highway 17
north of County Road 640.
According to Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper J.
Romorowski, 31-year-old Albert
T. Cowart of Bartow was dri-
ving a tractor trailer north-
bound on Highway 17 around
8:30 p.m., when he made a left-
hand turn in front of a 1997
Saturn.
The front of the Saturn col-
lided with the right side of the
trailer, then traveled under the


trailer into the left lane of
northbound traffic, where it
was struck by a 2005 Nissan,
driven by Kimberly A. Smith,
32, of Wauchula.
The driver of the Saturn,
whose name and address is
unknown, died at the scene.
Smith, Cowart, and a pas-
senger in Cowart's vehicle, 10-
year-old Fhavdria Cowart, were
not injured in the crash.
All were wearing seat, belts,
Trooper Romorowski said.
Charges are pending.

workshop to be held at the Bar-

This workshop is for those

sign/composition.
Following lunch, participants
will have several hours to work
on their own paintings.
Edwards studied oil painting,
as well as pastels and acrylics,
but when he began studying wa-
tercolors, he was captivated by
the versatility and luminosity of
the medium. He spent several
years learning from watercolor
master Zoltan Szabo and other
prominent watercolor artists.
He was a featured artist in
the fall 2001 issue of Watercolor
Magic Magazine. Today he is a
full-time watercolor workshop

children after the traditional Christmas parade.


By LETA WRIGHTI
Last week a group of the Fort
Meade Historic Museum volun-
teers celebrated a lunch at
Broadway Cafe honoring the
birthdays of Helen Palmer for
November and Peggy Langston
for December.
We sang as they blew out
their candles. Those present
were Martha Hancock, Peggy
Langston, Helen Palmer, Elsie
Barnett, Velma Howell, Jeanette
Albritton, Eunice Manley, Janet
Hancock, Violet Sheffield, Verna
Atwell, Mavis Carmichael, Lau-
retta Sthreshley, Fitzhugh

Leta Wright.
I have been a volunteer host-
ess at Pinewood Estate located
at Historic Bok Sanctuary. The
mansion was built by Charles
Austin Buck, who was the vice


- (Photo by Leta Wright)


president of Bethlehem Steel in
1929. Mr. Buck bought 7.5 acres
and started construction on this
home in 1929 and finished in
1932.
The residence, including ser-
vants areas, is 12,900 square
feet in Mediterranean style. Mr.
Buck wintered in Florida for
about six weeks each year and
named the mansion "El Retiro,"
which is Spanish for retreat.
Pinewood is listed on the Na-
tional Register of Historic
Places.
It is owned today by Historic
Bok Sanctuary.
Every year, they open the
home to visitors during the holi-
days from Nov. 25 to Jan. 1. De-
signers are invited to decorate
the home, and at the end of the
tour through the home, visitors
can vote on favorite rooms.
Believe me, they are all beau-


tiful. If you would like to visit
the home, the hours are Monday
through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. The
home is closed on Christmas Eve
and Christmas Day. Admission
is $7 for adults.
Do ride around Fort Meade
and take a look at the outstand-
ing yard and home decorations. I
really miss decorating the mu-
seum, but we are already plan-
ning for a showcase look next
year. The renovation is getting
closer every day to being fin-
ished.
I hope you saw the bandstand
when it was decorated for Santa
Claus. The Fort Meade Chamber
of Commerce did the decora-
tions, and they were elaborate
and beautiful. I am sure Santa
felt real good sitting in all that
beauty with all those children.


Be Fire Safe This Holiday Season


This is the time of year when
friends and neighbors begin
decorating,; plugging in extra
lights and putting up Christmas
trees.
More than four of every 10
home Christmas tree fires are
caused by an electrical problem
or malfunction.
One in four home Christmas
tree fires resulted from a heat
source placed too close to the
tree. Seven percent were started
by children playing with fire.
Polk County Board of County
Commissioners and Polk County
Public Safety Department urge
residents to inspect their homes
for holiday hazards.
Follow these few holiday
safety tips to a happy and safe
holiday season:
Follow the manufacturer's
instructions on how to use tree
lights.


Any string of lights with
worn, frayed or broken cords or
loose bulb connections should
not be used.
Check your strands of lights
to determine thde number of
strands that may be connected.
Connect no more than three
strands of push-in bulbs and a
maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-
in bulbs.
Always unplug Christmas
tree lights before leaving home
or going to bed.
Never use lit candles to
decorate a tree, and place them
well away from tree branches.,
When purchasing a live or
cut tree, check for fresh, green
needles.
Try to keep live trees as
moist as possible by giving them
plenty of water daily. Do not
purchase a tree that is dry or
dropping needles.


Children are fascinated
with,Christmas-trees, Keep a"
watchful eye on them when
around the tree and do not let
them play with the wiring or
lights.
Choose a sturdy tree stand
designed not to tip over.
When purchasing an artifi-
cial tree, be sure it is labeled as
fire-retardant.
Make sure the tree is at
least three feet away from any
heat source, such as fireplaces
and radiators.
Try to position the tree near
an outlet so that cords are not
running long distances.
For more information, visit
the National Fire Protection As-
sociation (NFPA) website at
www.nfpa.org or call your local
fire department.

75th Anniversary Nuggets

The Polk County Democrat

n 1937, after graduating from Florida Southern
College, Loyal Frisbie became the third generation of
the Frisbie family to go into the newspaper business.
He joined the staff of The Democrat as managing editor,
with responsibility for the news content of the paper.
Already active in the business were its founders: his father,
S. Lloyd Frisbie, and his grandfather, Sayer L. Frisbie, I.
Loyal's first love was acting, but acting jobs were few and
hard to find in the late 1930s, and a job in the family busi-
ness carried a salary of $25 a week plus a $5 a week credit
at Bartow Steam Laundry, which paid for its advertising in
that fashion. As his son quipped at his funeral, Loyal
Frisbie may be the first person in the history of journalism
who went into the weekly newspaper business for the
money. Except for two years spent in the Army in World
War II, Loyal remained employed by The Democrat until
failing health led to his retirement in the latter part of
2004, a few weeks before his death. S. L. Frisbie, IV

McCain's Victory


Is Good for America


The more we see of the Bush administra-
tion's war-time policies, the more we wish
that Senator John McCain were in the
White House.
McCain is the nation's most famous for-
mer prisoner of war.
When McCain speaks on the subject of
torturing PWs, the nation and at last the
President listens.
Right-wing postings to the Internet have
suggested that the sexual humiliation of
PWs is closer to fraternity hazing hijinks
than to .the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and the
televised beheadings of hostages by Iraqi
terrorists. There is merit in that observa-
tion.
But defending American mistreatment
of prisoners, whether military or civilian,
because it is less brutal than mistreatment
of hostages and prisoners by the enemy
has something of a hollow ring.
McCain's proposal is for a law banning
"cruel, inhumane and degrading treat-
ment" of prisoners. That.does not seem too
high a standard to expect of the world's
most powerful nation.
It does not call for kid glove treatment;
the words again are "cruel, inhumane and
degrading treatment."
McCain's proposal hasn't been passed
into law, but it has found overwhelming
support in the House of Representatives. It
seems likely to find similar support in the
Senate.
Putting as positive a spin as possible on
McCain's success, President Bush invited
his long-time rival to the White House to
announce that the administration will
accept McCain's measure.
I "We've sent a message to the world that
the United States is not like the terrorists,"
McCain said from Bush's oval office.
"What we are is a nation that upholds
values and standards of behavior and
treatment of all people, no matter how evil
or bad they are."
Bush said that the legislation would
"achieve a common objective: that is to


make it clear to the world that this govern-
ment does not torture."
Sending that message to the world is
important.
Equally important, it removes any
excuse by America's adversaries, in this
war or future wars, to mistreat American
prisoners on the basis that '"they did it
first."
From a pragmatic standpoint, there is a
body of thought that holds that civil treat-
ment of prisoners is a more effective way
to get information than "beating it out of
them." We profess no expertise in that
area.
The Global War on Terror is arguably the
most difficult war this nation has ever
embarked on; the enemy doesn't wear uni-
forms, doesn't abide by the rules of war,
doesn't even respect the lives of its own
soldiers or countrymen.
There is no identifiable front line on a
battlefield; there are no hills to capture and
hold.
It is a war that cannot be fought and won
in conventional fashion.
.That does not justify America from
departing from international treaties on
the humane treatment of prisoners of war.
John McCain has earned the right to set
the standard for America's treatment of
PWs. In doing so, he has chosen the high
ground.

FORT MEADE Truth in
Lending, which is a great piece of
legislation; too bad we can't legis-
late Truth in Politics.
Recently Commissioner
Melony Bell in Fort Meade, ran
for re-election on a campaign that
she would not vote in favor of
raising taxes. Commissioner Bell
won the election primarily on
that promise.
Within three months she voted
in favor of raising ad valorem
taxes from one mill to three-and-
a-half mills. She has continually
defended her change of mind by
saying, "I am not in favor of rais-
ing taxes but we had no choice,
we have to pay our employees
and balance the budget."
I am having a hard time


understanding her explanation.
Commissioner Bell had been
serving on the commission for
the previous nine years. She
should have known the shape the
city was in prior to the election.
The city has a sewerage treat-
ment facility that needs major
work to keep it up to power. The
city police station looks like it is
owned by a slumlord; officers
had to put tarps over their com-
puters when it rained to protect
them.
Many of the streets in the city
looks like a canal after a rain
because there is no drain off. Fort
Meade is one of the hardest
towns in Polk County to pull a
building permit and the major
reason is there are not enough


personnel:
City managers use this town
as a stepping-stone to go to big-
ger and better places (we have
had three in the last eight years).
The difficulty in presenting a bal-
anced budget, no doubt, has been
a factor.
The tax base has been one mill
for several years, which happens
to be a 1960s tax base. It was com-
pletely obvious that something
had to be done. What is so amaz-
ing is that Commissioner Bell
could not see this until after the
election and she had already
served for nine years.

(Editor's note: Chuck Pember-
ton, Sr., ran against Mrs. Bell for
city commission Seat 5.)

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

The Enigmatic Smile Is a Happy One


Stop the press!
Hold Page 1!
Dutch researchers have finally
figured out why Mona Lisa is
smiling in her famous painting:
She's happy.
To be more precise, she's 83
percent happy.
The enigmatic smile (nobody I
know .can define "enigmatic,"
least of all me, but everybody
knows that's the word that
defines the smile on the face of
the Mona Lisa) was analyzed by
scientists at the University of
Amsterdam.
The scientists acknowledged
that their work was "a fun
demonstration of technology
rather than a serious experi-
ment."
They took a copy of Leonardo
da Vinci's famous portrait and
subjected it to "cutting-edge emo-


tion recognition software," the
Associated Press reported.
Amsterdam U developed the
software in collaboration with the
University of Illinois.
The findings of the computer:
The enigmatic (there's that
word again) smile was 83 percent
happy, 9 percent disgusted, 6 per-
cent fearful, and 2 percent angry.
She was less than 1 percent
neutral (which is good, because
otherwise the numbers would
have come to more than 100 per-
cent) and 0 percent surprised.
Okay, there's Leo, standing
next to a canvas and holding a
brush and pallet, telling you not
to move. It's no surprise that he's
painting your picture, right?
I figure the 83 percent happy
comes from the fact that the com-
puter scanned the finished work,
which means that Leo was just


about through with the painting.
The combined 17 percent on
the disgusted/fearful/angry axis
is a little harder to figure. Maybe
she wasn't too happy with .the
modeling fee, and afraid that the
check would bounce, creating
enough anger to wipe that enig-
matic smile off her patient face.
That is only speculation on my
part, of course.
The Mona Lisa was painted
502 years ago, in 1503, and today
hangs in the Louvre in Paris, a
museum whose name is as diffi-
cult to pronounce as the Mona
Lisa's smile is to analyze.
The painting also is known as
"La Gioconda," which begins to
make more sense when you learn
that Mona is believed to have
been the wife of Francesco del
Giocondo. In its feminine form,
Gioconda translates from Italian


as "the jolly lady."
Why it didn't trip "jolly" on
the emotio-meter at Amsterdam
U should be a subject for serious
exploration.
Professor Harro Stokman at
AU told the AP that his fellow sci-
entists realized that hooking up
the Mona Lisa to emotion recoc
nition software was a little iu 1,_i-
entific because the software ";in't
designed to register subtle emo-
tions."
Hence, the AP explained, "it
couldn't detect the hint of sexual
suggestion or disdain many have
read into Mona Lisa's eyes."
I guess I've been hanging out
in the wrong art galleries; I
missed the speculation about
"sexual suggestion or disdain."
I never heard anything but
"enigmatic."

parents, we would like to thank
them for their contributions to
our football program and wish
them great success in the future.
Our football program has
accomplished many tremendous
things over the past seasons and
the loss to Port St. Joe should not


take away from those great
accomplishments.
Thanks to our cheerleaders
and band members who do a
great job cheering on and pump-
ing up the Miners. Many thanks
to our fans and booster club who
do a great job supporting a spe-
cial group of student-athletes and
coaches. Great thanks to both the
varsity coaching staff and junior
varsity coaching staffs who
worked very hard to help our
young men do their best in the
classroom and on the field.
The future is bright for Miner
football. It is great to see so many


former players come back and
help the younger generations of
the Black and Gold.
We have a number of good
young athletes moving up
through our lower grades, a new
facility on the way, and some of
the best support in the state of
Florida.
The success of our program is

MIKE HAYDE
Head Football Coach
Fort Meade Miners


Some Christmases never live
up to our expectations, but we all
remember at least one that was
pure magic and shines brightly in
our memory.
We never know which one it
will be until we find ourselves in
the glorious midst of it.
One hectic December, I was the
typical jittery organist/choirmas-
ter, wondering if everything
would come together in-time for
Christmas.. Our Choristers con-
sisted of 22 lively young singers.
Excitement ran high, especially
when someone thought they saw
a snowflake.
And then we received the invi-
tation! St. Bede's Choristers were
invited to present a program of
carols at the new Northlake Mall
during the Christmas season.
When I announced this stu-
pendous news, there was much
excitement, jumping up and
down and clapping of hands.
Except, of course, for the oldest
boy, Henry, who was cool even
then; Cherie, who was always
perfectly ladylike; and Beverly,


who was usually elected presi-
dent of the group and in charge of
anything really important.
Sisters, Robin and Kim,
weren't sure they would be
allowed to go at all, as they "had
done something" again.
New vestments had been
ordered for the Choristers, but
would they be delivered in time
to wear at the mall? Keeping a
youth choir in vestments that fit
is always an uphill job. As usual,
some of them had hems half way
up their shins. Due to the explo-
sive growth of the group, vest-
ments that fit in September didn't
fit by Christmas.
At last, the big day arrived,
along with the vestments, and we
arrived at the mall like a low fly-
ing cloud of red and white pep-
permint candies. I was instructed
by the mall director to arrange
the choir on the stair step risers
and then come to the office to
have the speakers turned on.
What could be simpler?
Brain surgery, maybe. Boy,
were they rambunctious that


night! Even Henry was anything
but cool, being caught up in the
maelstrom of excitement. He was
doing some sort of mazurka on
the top row and shaking the
whole platform.
Being a firm believer in tough
love, I told Henry that if he even
moved while I was gone, I was
going to break his face when I got
back. I told the rest of them to
stand exactly as they were.
I set off for the mall office to
have the speakers turned on, took
a wrong turn, and went through a
pair of heavy metal doors, which
slammed shut behind me with a
clang like prison gates. I found
myself in some sort of cold, dark,
sinister loading area. I was
trapped like a rat in the gloom in
my own basic black and white
vestments.
There was no handle on the
door to the mall. I wondered how
long the Choristers would stay
put before disappearing into the
crowd of shoppers.
I wondered if I would ever see
them again. What would the


Archbishop of Canterbury do in a
like situation? I decided he would
probably bang on the door with
his shoe and yell a lot, so that's
what I did. Several days later, or
so it seemed, the door was cau-
tiously opened by a Hell's Angels
look-alike fellow on the other
side of the door. He jumped when
he saw me in my weird outfit. I
thanked him profusely, rushed
by, went through the right door,
had the speakers turned on and
ran back into the mall.
The children were all still in
place, motionless, in their red cas-
socks and white cottas, looking
like a Norman Rockwell
Christmas card After the cold and
dark, tinsel and lights sparkled
and warmth enveloped us all.
Suddenly it was Christmas!
As "Angels We Have Heard on
High" rang out, I knew I was wit-
nessing a miracle. Every single
cassock was exactly three inches
from the floor!

Don't Forget The Tax Collector -

Deadlines Are Fast Approaching


With so much happening in
the last week of the year, it's
easy to see how someone could
forget to renew their registration
or pay their property taxes on
time.
This year, however, Joe Ted-
der, tax collector for Polk
County, is hoping to reach tax-
payers before Christmas, to re-
mind them of important dead-
lines which are coming up the
end of the month for property
owners as well as owners of mo-
bile homes and heavy trucks.
"This year, as with every year,
we are reminding owners of mo-
bile homes and commercial vehi-
cles, such as big trucks and trail-
ers, semis, and limos, to get their
vehicle registrations renewed
sooner rather than later," Ted-
der said. "Also, with the prop-
erty tax season in full swing,
property owners who are seeking
a three percent discount for
early payment of their property
tax bills will also want to make
their payment to avoid having to
wait in holiday lines."
Generally, the deadline for re-
newing mobile home and com-
mercial vehicle registrations, as-
well as qualifying for the three
percent property tax payment
discount is Dec. 31.
However, this year Dec. 31
falls on a Saturday.
As such, the following dead-
lines apply:
Any payments made by mail
must be postmarked by Satur-
day, Dec. 31.
Property tax or mobile home
registration renewal payments
made on the internet at www.
PolkTaxes.com must be made on
or before Saturday, Dec. 31.
Mobile home registration re-


newal payments made via auto-
mated telephone must be made
on or before Saturday, Dec. 31.
Any payments made in per-
son must be conducted before 5
p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 3. The mo-
bile home registration renewal
period is not affected by week-
ends. They are due by Dec. 31;
however, there is no penalty for
late renewal until Jan. 11.
Florida law requires that mo-
bile home decals and registra-
tions be renewed and replaced
before they expire.
To renew mobile homes, own-
ers should provide a previous
registration or registration re-
newal notice. The cost of renewal
will vary according to the length
of the mobile home.
State law also requires that
registrations and license plates
be renewed for truck tractors,
semi-trailers, trucks over 5,000
pounds, and nine or more pas-
senger automobiles for hire be-
fore they expire.
Operators of commercial vehi-
cles must present a prior regis-
tration, registration renewal no-
tice or license plate 'number,
proof of payment or exemption
from Federal Heavy Use Tax for
all commercial trucks with a
gross vehicle weight of 55,000
pounds or more, and proof of
commercial insurance for all ve-
hicles exceeding 26,000 lbs GVW
and regular insurance for com-
mercial trucks with a GVW less
than 26,001 GVW.
The tax office reminds mobile
home and commercial vehicle
owners that failure to renew reg-
istrations on time can result in
additional penalty fees. More im-
portantly, it is a violation of
state law to operate a vehicle in


Florida with out current regis-
tration or license plate.
The cost of renewal will vary
according to the gross weight of
the commercial vehicle.
To beat the holiday rush, tax-
payers are encouraged to con-
duct their transactions early and
take advantage of the many pay-
ment methods available to them.
Additional information is also
available on the website at www.
PolkTaxes.com or by calling 534-
4700.


awareness of the dangers of con-
ducting real estate transactions
with unlicensed individuals.
It is a third degree felony in
the state of Florida to act as a
real estate broker or sales associ-
ate without a license.
In order to increase aware-
ness and to encourage buyers,
sellers, and real estate agents to
check the status of an individu-
al's license before conducting
business, the Department has
begun an advertising campaign
focus on prevention.
"It is critical that citizens re-
port suspected unlicensed activ-
ity," said Mark Reddinger, unli-
censed activity program admin-
istrator. "By doing so, we can
assist in the prevention of scams
and victimization, and protect
Florida's citizens from financial
and material harm."

Drug Prevention Resource Center Offers

'Sobering' Facts On Holiday Drinking


Subscribe To The Polk County Democrat
Or The Fort Meade Leader
For The Most News In Your Home Town


December 19, 2005 The Polk County Democrat 7


Drug Prevention Resource
Center would like remind people
that getting into the yuletide
spirit does not have to include al-
cohol and other drugs.
According to MADD (Mothers
Against Drunk Driving), there
are more alcohol-related traffic
fatalities during the holiday sea-
son than any other time during
the year in the United States.
The period between Thanks-
giving and New Year's Eve has
been dubbed "the killing season,"
with the lIkelihood' of a driver
having an. accident greatly in-,
creased with each drink he
takes.
Families and friends will be
among the holiday travelers
sharing the roads with alcohol
and substance-impaired drivers.
Taking the time to know the
facts, think and act responsibly
will help to prevent the next al-
cohol or drug-related statistic.
Before hitting the road this
holiday season, take a moment
to read the following current sta-
tistics for some sobering facts
and information:


About three in every 10
Americans will be involved in an
alcohol-related crash at some
time in their lives. (NTSA-Na-
tional Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, 2001)
An alcohol-related traffic fa-
tality occurred on an average of
every 30 minutes in America in
2002. (NTSA, 2003)
A standard drink is defined
as 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of
wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof
distilled spirits, all of which con-
tain the same amount of alcohol.
(NHTSA, 2002)
Beer is the drink most com-
monly consumed by 80 percent of
people stopped for alcohol-im-
paired driving or involved in al-
cohol-related crashes, followed
by liquor/wine at 20 percent.
(IIHS-Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety, 2003)
The speed of alcohol absorp-
tion affects, the rate at which one
becomes drunk. Unlike foods, al-
cohol does not have to be slowly
ingested. As a person drinks
faster than the alcohol can be


eliminated, the drug accumu-
lates in the body, resulting in
higher and higher levels of alco-
hol in the blood. (Narcotic Edu-
cation Foundation of America,
2002)
The average person metabo-
lizes alcohol at the rate of about
one drink per hour. Only time
will sober a person up. Drinking
strong coffee, exercising or tak-
ing a cold shower will not help.
(2002 Michigan State University
study, as reported on Mothers
Against Drunk Driving MADD
web site www.madd.org)

CNAs Must Renew Now


Florida's certified nursing as-
sistants (CNAs) must complete
their certificate renewal process
by Dec. 31.
Renewal forms were mailed to
the address of record and should
have been received no later than
mid-October.
If a CNA has not received a
form, he should call 850-488-
0595.
As of Dec. 8, nearly 50 percent
of the estimated 90,000 active
CNAs expected to renew have
done so.
The CNA renewal form and a
$25 renewal fee must be received
by DOH before Dec. 31, or the
certificate will become delin-
quent and the CNA will not be
able to practice in Florida.
After Jan. 1, the renewal fee


and delinquency fee totals $45.
Certificates not renewed will
go null and void on July 1, and
the CNA will have to apply to
take the CNA examination again
to obtain a new certificate.
CNAs that were newly certi-
fied on or after May 16, 2005, do
not need to renew this year and
have been issued a new certifi-
cate with an expiration date of
Dec. 31, 2007.
CNAs that mail in the re-
newal form and fees by Dec. 31
can continue to work and should
receive their new certificates by
the end of January.
DOH is expecting a. large
number of renewals in the last
week of the year, so applying
early will prevent any delays in
processing,

FUTURES Golf Tour Sets Tournament Schedule


The FUTURES, Golf Tour, the
official developmental tour of the
LPGA, released its 2006 tourna-
ment schedule last week, which
: will feature 18 tournaments with
prize money equaling $1.35 mil-
lion the highest ever in Tour
history.
"Next year's schedule is the
strongest schedule in the tour's
26-year history and it reflects
strategic expansion into key
markets, such as the Dallas
Metro area, the beautiful Lake
Geneva resort community in
Wisconsin and the active golf
community of Tucson," said
Zayra F. Calderon, president
and CEO of the FUTURES Golf
Tour.
"The momentum of celebrat-
ing our 25th anniversary this
past season with a 16 percent in-


crease in tournament atten-
dance, an increase of 120 percent
in page views and 135 percent in
visitors to futurestour.com, as
well as 14 different winners in
18 tournaments demonstrates
that we are set for a dynamic
and record-setting 2006 season,"
added Calderon.
Next season, the average
tournament purse jumps from
just over $68,000 in 2005 to
$75,000. The tour will once again
launch the season in its home
state of Florida in March and
conclude the competitive calen-
dar year in a new early-Septem-
ber date and at a new season-
culminating site in Albany, N.Y.
Over the course of the season,
the tour will visit 13 different
states.
