Fire, Main Street, Dominate 2005 Headlines


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

At six minutes before 7 o'clock
on the morning of Monday, June
6, 2005, a smoke alarm went off in
the 200 block of East Main Street.
It was shift change time at the
Bartoe- fire station, and both
shifts of firefighters responded.to
the two-story building which
housed Jeru Trucking and
Gateway Insurance, a building
better known as the old Tate-.
Phillips Hardware store.
The first firefighters to arrive
saw smoke, but no flames, coming
from the roof.
Firefighters went to the second
floor with a two-and-a-half-inch
hose line, but were unable to con-
tain the fire. It spread to the
ground floor and to the adjoining


A 13-year-old Bartow girl who
was reported missing this past.
weekend has been safely located
in Odessa, Texas.
Bartow Police spokesman Kirk
Warren says Shelby Lyrinn
Balahoski called her father in
Michigan yesterday and told him
of her whereabouts.
Her father, knowing that
Shelby had been reported miss-
ing, contacted Odessa police, who
then went and picked her up,
Warren said.
According to Warren, Shelby
was picked up fromher home last
Monday by 47-year-old Kevin
-Ray Slagle, a registered sex
offender. ofEustis.
Slagle turned himself into
Hardee County law enforcement
yesterday. He told police that
before turning himself in, he was
visiting with relatives .in
Wauchula. and that he was
spending the weekend with
them.
He said that, although'he had
been in, the company of Shelby, he
had not seen her for about ,two
weeks:
After being picked up by
Odessa 'police, Warren said,
Shelby told her mother that she
had been with Slagle earlier in
the week, but she fled the state
after Slagle allegedly threatened
her.


building, which housed the offices
of Bartow Consulting Group.
That building once was the old
Ritz Theater.
A mutual aid call went out for
help from other departments, and
the' Polk County fire department
.responded, as did city fire depart-.
ments' from Lakeland, Lake
Wales, IMulberir, and Winter
Haven.
The second floor offices were
destroyed, and the ground floor.
offices were damaged beyond
repair.-
The offices of URS Corp., just
west of the old theater building,
were damaged but not destroyed.
The cause of the fire was
traced to a faulty light fixture.
Main Street was closed to traf-
fic for most of the month of June
out of concern that the two build-
ings might collapse. The street,


Slagle is being held in tli.
Hardee County jail without bond
on a Polk ('nuntvy warrant fo
interference with child custody
and one count of contributing to
the delinquency of a minor.
Prior to thi- incident, Slagle
had picked the girl up on several
occasions during the past, several
months, without her parents
knowledge or consent, Warren
said.
Additional charges are pend-
ing further investigation. he said.

was reopened after the damaged
buildings were razed.
Fire Chief Jay Robinson said
water pressure was less than the
3,000 gallons per minute consid-
ered adequate for fighting fires in
a commercial district. A field test
supported his statement.
More pressure could have been
obtained by connecting to fire
hydrants farther from the fire
scene, tests showed.
It was Bartow's top story of
2005.

; No. 2: Main Street Redesign

The fire was yet another blow
to Main Street merchants, whose
business already was down due to
the redesign of Main Street that
began the first week in April and
continued through November.
While the end result nar-
rower streets and wider, land-
scaped sidewalks, designed to-
make :downtown a pedestrian-
friendly destination was excit-
ing; the work reduced and in
some cases eliminated Main
Street parking. Closure of the
street after the fire added to the


interruption of business.
Yet another issue condem-
nation of the old Philip's
Department Store building by the
city out of concern that it might
be structurally unsafe created
further problems. Nelson
Construction, general contractor
for the Main Street project, decid-
ed not to rebuild the sidewalk and
planter boxes in front of the build-
ing, and not to mill and resurface
Main Street in downtown Bartow.
Both would create intense vibra-
tion.
In: December, the city
announced that it would termi-
nate the uncompleted portion of
Nelson's contract, and readvertise
for completion of the job" after the
problems relating to the Philip's
building, including a lawsuit filed
by the owners, are resolved.
To help ease the financial pres-
sure on Main Street merchants,
the Community Redevelopment
Agency, the Chamber of
Commerce. and The Democrat
worked on several promotional
and financial relief projects.
On Nov. 19, a day-long "Magic
on MAain" celebration marked


completion of most of the project,
Sto include lighting of thousand of
lights on newly-planted trees and
along rooftops of downtown build-
ings.

'No. 3: Housing Density

The density of residential
developments on newly%-annexed
property drew the attention -
anrd often the ire of Bartowan;
who objected to the city approving
70-foot wide building lots in rural
areas where one-acre and larger
homesites are common.
Zoning board hearings which
typically go almost unnoticed by
the public became focal points for
Bartowans urging the city to
require low density development,
on some of the annexed property,
primarily on E.F. Griffin Road.
An organization called Our
Town Bartow was created to cam-
paign for lower density.
Two property owners filed suit.
to try to block a planned commLIu-
nity between U.S. Highway 98
and E F. Griffin Road.
A majority of the members of
both the zoning board and the city


commission expressed support for
lower density, and two developers
proposed compromises to reduce
densities in their developments,
but not to the one-house-per-acre
standard sought by many neigh-
bors.

No. 4: City Finances

In July, City 'Ngr. Joseph J,
DeLegge predicted that the city
would have to cut 20 positions
from the city payroll to being the
21)05-06 budget into balance.
The city commission responded
by allowing DeLegge to spend a
$500,000 tax levy earmarked for
.capital improvements (primarily
new buildings, on operating
expenses for :one year, and
DeLegge came up with a similar
amount of savings in operating
costs.
The city also imposed a
stormwater utility tax of $45 per
home to pay for storm drainage
improvements.
At year's end,' union contracts

City Property Sale Vote Tuesday


A public hearing will be held
I Tuesday night on an ordinance
Authorizing the city to sell a 35-
and-a-half-acre parcel of land
next to Wal-Mart for commercial
development.
The commission is meeting
one day later than usual because
city offices are closed today in for
the New Year's Day holiday.
In 1993, Wal-Mart deeded the
ti-act .to the city to avoid ha'.-ing
to go through a Development of
Regional Impact (DRI) process
for its store on Van Fleet Drive
just west of U.S. Highway 17.
The deed carried a re-trnicti'.n
that limits the city from using
the land "for a'ny purpose :other
than recreation or :,pen space "
In 2005, Frontier asked the
city give it an opportunity t ti tr
to negotiate with Wal -Marit tow
remove the restriction on use of
the property. That proposal will
come before the commission
Tuesday for final approval.
Bartow's contract 'with
Frontier contains a "buy-back
agreement" under which the city
will buy the property .bck from
Frontier if it is unable to reach


an agreement with Wal-Mart
within two years. The agreement
also requires the city to buy back
the property if Frontier reaches
an agreement with Wal-Mart but
decides not to follow up qn the
deal.
Frontier will pay the city
$170,000 for the acreage, which
fronts on \'an Fleet Drive.
Frontier will negotiate with Wal-
Mart to attempt to have the
development. restriction
removed.
If Frontier is unable to do so.
the city % ill buy back the parcel
,-,,'.l 17 0 .1 .. -
I' Frontier is able to negotiate-
for removal of the restrictions,
but then decides not to pursue
the priojct, the city will buy back
the property and reimburse
Frontier for up to $100,000 in its
expenses in securing that
removal.
If the deal goes through,
Frontier will pay the city the
appraised value of the property,
as determined under a complex
option:
SThe price will be either an
average of the appraised value
determined by Hagood & Kelly,
which is $145,000 per devel-
opable acre, and a second
appraisal to be made.by Levie D.
Smith & Associates; or
SThe average of those two
appraisals plus a third appraisal
to be made by. an appraiser of
Frontier's choosing.
The commission passed the
ordinance approving the agree-
ment on first reading in


December: the final vote will.
take place Tuesday.
The commission will meet at 5
p.m. for a work session, and will
immediately go into a closed ses-
sion to di-cuss a lawsuit filed by
John and ferri Frost seeking to
block the proposed Silver
Companies development between
U.S. Highway 98 North and E.F.

We're a Bit

Narrower;

(Had You

SNoticed?)
- With today's issue, The
Democrat makes one of the
.biggest changes in its format in
the past 25 years ... and the
chances are you may not even
have noticed.
With our first issue of 2006,
we have reduced the number of
columns per page from seven to
six, and the width of the page
from 16 inches to 14.
In conjunction with that
change, we have redesigned the
nameplate on the front page, and
eliminated the three "promo
boxes" at the top of the page.
There are a number of advan-
tages to the narrower page.
One is convenience to readers;
the narrower paper is easier to
hold.
Another is that a six-column is
something of an industry stan-
dard for newspapers.
We plan to phase in a few
more design changes in the com-
ing weeks to better organize the
content of the paper.
Your comments and recom-
mendations will be welcomed.
You can call us at 533-4183 or e-
mail us at polkdemo@aol.com.
And thanks for reading The
Democrat! -- L. Frisbie, IV/

Punishment Vs. Consequences


Q: I have heard that using"
consequences" is a better way to
discipline than using punish-
ment. I'd like to try this with my
5-year-old son, but I need help.
What exactly are consequences?
And how are they different from
punishment?
A: The quickest way to get
children to correct unwanted be-
havior is to punish them. But it's
not the best way.
Punishment often instills
fear. It doesn't help children de--
velop their own internal sense of
right and wrong. Nor does it in-
still responsibility.
Responsibility develops when
children face the consequences of
their behavior.
At first, punishment and con-
sequences do seem similar. But
there are important differences.
For example, punishment:
Often happens..in anger.
"You br6ke my vase! Go to your
room!"
Often comes with nagging or
a lecture. "How many times have
I told you... ?"
Does not always relate to
what happened. How does going
to the bedroom relate to break-
ing a vase?
Has little effect except to
make the child confused, angry,
upset and probably bitter.
Consequences:
Include empathy for the
child. "Oh, you broke the vase.
I'll bet you feel bad about it.
What do you think you should do
now?"
Focus only on this misbe-
havior. The child does not pay


again for past mistakes.
Relate directly to the misbe-
havior. "How can we clean this
up?" "We can't eat out today. We
need to save the money to re-
place the vase."
Result in the child learning
an important lesson: If I break
something I need to clean it up
and replace it. Replacing things
costs money that could be used
for doing something fun.
The main purpose of using a
consequence is to teach, not to
punish. Knowing when and how
to impose a consequence can be
the key to success.
Here are some tips:
Choose an appropriate con-
sequence. If possible, it should'
be related to the misbhavior.
Some consequences ""happen

naturally, such as missing a fun
activity after dawdling too long.
Give one warning. For ex-
ample, "I asked you to put away
the toy. Please do it now, or I
will put it away for the day."
Follow through. Don't give
your child chance after chance to
comply. Show that you are seri-
ous.
Explain why you are impos-
ing a consequence as you do it.:
Give significantly more positive
than negative feedback. Compli-
ment your son for doing well!
Make consequences the cor-
nerstone of your discipline, and
you and your son will both bene-
fit.

lL Anniversary Nuggels

The Polk County Democrat

T he size and format of The Democrat has changed a
number of rimes since our first issue on Aug. 28,
1931. Today's issue marks another major design
change. We have reduced the number of columns per page
from seven to six, and the width of the page from 16 inch-
es to 14. Our first issue had five columns on a page that
was 12-and-a-quarter inches wide. In the first few years of
its existence, the size of the newspaper sometimes changed
based on what size paper was in stock at Bartow Printing
Co., which printed The Democrat until 1946. We eventu-
ally expanded to eight columns on a page that was 17-and-
a-half inches wide. In the 1950s, we converted to nine
slightly narrower columns. With our first issue of 1980, we
went to six much wider columns on a page that was 16
inches wide. Some years later, we switched to seven
columns to meet the industry.standard width, called
Standard Advertising Units. Today's change maintains the
SAU column widths, but with one less column per page. _

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

The Crystal Ball for 2006


Editorial

r,. ,


Forsooth it's time to predict
what 2006 holds in store.
The Road at Last. Might as
well stick my neck way out for
the first one: this will:be the year
that sees at least a start on the
back entrance to Bartow Regional
Medical Center. It's been in the
talking stage for years. By year's
end, look for at least a beginning.
No Dumping. Look for the
Proposal to accept "commercial
Garbage" at the construction and
demolition landfill in northwest
Bartow to fail. There is virtually
unanimous opposition to it, and
it's hard to imagine the state issu-
ing a permit.
Stay in School. The school
board and the superintendent
will place major emphasis on
reducing the drop-out rate from
Polk County high schools. It's a
hot-button topic in education,
doubly so in Polk.
Focus on Reading. It's hardly
news that reading is fundamental
to success in school, and high
schools now have reading teach-
ers to help students who haven't
mastered that skill. Ir 200@, look.
for a new initiative to bring read-
ing skills up to par at the middle
school level.


Recall Will Fail. The effort to
recall the four Polk County com-
missioners who voted for a big
tax increase will fail. A lot of peo-
ple are mad at them, but not
enough voters are mad enough to
remove them from office.
Roads and Parks. The county
commission imposed a one-mill
tax increase for roads and a half-
mill Municipal Services Taxing
Unit tax for parks and recreation.
By this time next year, there will
be a dramatic advances in both
road work and park develop-
ment.
Water, Water, Everywhere?
No, not really. Management of
water resources will become a
major issue in county govern-
ment in 2006. The situation in
northeast Polk is a preview of
what lies ahead.
Class Size Amendment. The
Legislature will do something to
mitigate the impact of the Class
Size Amendment. It won't be
repealed, but look for a proposal
to the voters to ease the financial
blow to counties.
Medicaid Reform. With the
cost of Medicaid rising at 10.4
percent per yeart twice the
-annual increase in the growth of


the state' budget Medicaid
reform will-be a hot topic with
the Legislature. (And there are no
easy answers.)
Troop Reduction in Iraq. By
the time the odometer rolls over
on 2007, there will be a significant
reduction in the number of
American troops in Iraq. Between
the growing sentiment in the
United States to bring the troops
home and the increasing level of
training of Iraq's army by
American troops, we'll have
fewer Americans in Iraq at year's
end.,
Those army predictions.
With them comes my annual
New Year's greeting:
I wish you Peace, Love, Truth,
Beauty and Pizza (because after
all, we all gotta eat).
.FSU One Time! Go Gators!
Nuke Yale! Go Colonials! Go
Mocs! How 'Bout Them Dawgs!
Paw Power! Sting 'Em, Jackets!
Go Miners! Go Highlanders! Go
Blue Darters! Vive Chevreul! Go
Blue! Stick 'em Matadors! Go
Vikings! Go Royals! Go Bulls! Go
Knights!
Shalom.

BARTOW Sheriff Grady
Judd deserves a huge "thank
you" for an unprecedented,
tremendous early Christmas pre-
sdnt to the citizens of Polk
County in November. Th6 sher-
iff's office returned $9,027,417 of
budgeted yet unspent taxpayer
dollars.
This needs to be nailed down
and reiterated now, :because at
December's first county commis-
sion meeting, Judd's stewardship
may have been unknowingly
minimized by some friendly ban-
ter between' a county commis-
sioner arid another constitutional
officer. '
Generally, returnsfrom consti-
tutional officers represent collec-
tion of taxes, fees or fines.
Sometimes these are more than
expected. The 14.1 percent appre-
ciation in property taxes due
largely to growth ($7 million in
new construction, etc.) was per-
haps the largest, ever according
to the property appraiser.
Because of that, recording fees for
plats provided excess fees to the
clerk of courts and so on. These
excess dollars are non-discre-
tionary funds and are not to be
spent without county and state
oversight.:
By contrast, Sheriff Judd
went above and beyond the
call of duty by returning a
"discretionary" $3,718,291
from the "unspent person-
nel budget consisting pri-
marily from holding posi-
tions open, unspent over-
time, etc." The sheriff also
returned $1,701,931 from
the "operating and capital
budget primarily as a
result of lower than budget-
ed inmate population."
We need to recognize A
this noteworthy effort. In
this business of politics, it's
difficult .to decipher
whether something's signif-
icant or if it's just a matter
of political spin. And unfor-
tunately, officials are tempt-


I have just received an 'e-mail'
from Reuben Wallace, who was
on the Summerlin Institute foot-
ball team when I was trying to
learn plane geometry and Latin.
I believe he was several grades
ahead of me.
He was also the soda jerk at
the drugstore where all of us kids
went for a Coke or an ice cream
cone after school. He was a very
busy boy and I imagine he did all
sorts of jobs to keep busy and
earn some spending money.
'The fact that he was on the
football team back before we had
air conditioning in the school
tested his mettle. The mere fact
that he and the rest of the boys
showered and changed in that


ed to spend every dime in fear
they'll receive less next year.
Peers sometimes get nervous,
too. A little of that was perhaps
evident when the sheriff's accom-
plishment was unintentionally ,
diminished by comments
between another constitutional
officer and commissioner at the
board meeting. The commission-
er stated that'the "sheriff received
quite a bit of publicity" while this
constitutional officer had
returned $3,500,000 "without the
fancy check." In effect, that
primed the pump a little for the
constitutional officer. Nothing
'bat mind you, but w'as
said could mislead the u aine
eye, or ear. *:' ''
When I countered that the
sheriff had done something "dif-
ferent" by not expending large
discretionary budget dollars
(salaries, etc.) the commissioner
said "that's what (the' constitu-
tional officer) did too." The con-
stitutional' officer seemed to me
to give the impression that a sig-
nificant portion was unspent per-
sonnel dollars but did not have
the dollar figure when I asked,
perhaps because, the commission-
er interrupted with a little put

ture was 95 degrees or close to it

opponents.
Go Jackets!
We were so proud of our team.
If we didn't attend the home
games, we were either sick or
under arrest. I doubt that anyone
was under arrest, though. Vernon
Dozier was the high school prin-
cipal at the time and although he
was a little fellow, he ran a tight
ship.
I left Bartow during World
War II to work for the FBI and I
suspect that Reuben was in the
service "for the duration."
Reuben has been active on The
Polk County Democrat bulletin


down at which everyone got a
good laugh and we proceeded on
as usual.
Not to be squelched, I request-
ed a report after the meeting from
the constitutional officer's staff.
The report was a bit less detailed
than I'd requested, but showed
only $100,000 of the return was
truly discretionary. Not totally
satisfied, I was told by phone that
maybe less than half was in
unspent salary dollars.
This is not to slight-the consti-
tutional officer. I've praised his
frugality for the lowest percent-
age budget increase a couple
time . ,
This year the award for frugal-
ity goes to Joe Tedder for having
the lowest budget increase of
about 3 percent.
However, what Sheriff Judd
has done in his very first year
represents a sea change, a shift of
the tectonic plates.
Sometimes. you don't know
what you've got 'til it's gone.
Without full appreciation, we dis-
courage future acts.
Bravo, Sheriff Judd!

I have suggested to him that
he write a column for the weekly

certainly be interested in reading
what he has to say about the situ-

Bartow's Top Stories of 2005


(Continued from Page 1)
with the city's three labor unions
(representing police officers, fire-
fighters, and general employees)
still had not been ratified, though
negotiators for the police and fire
unions reached agreement on
contracts to be submitted to their
membership and to the city com-
mission for approval. .
-The last contracts expired on
Sept. 30.

No. 5: Oaks School Closes

In July, officials of The Oaks
School Bartow's oldest and
largest private school -
announced that the school would
close and would file for Chapter 7
bankruptcy protection.
With charter schools --funded
by school taxes now offering
many of the innovative programs
previously offered primarily by
private schools, Oaks saw its
enrollment falling. Financial
pressures of last year's hurri-
canes also were cited as a cause
of reduced enrollments.
Oaks traced its lineage back
more than 50 years as a kinder-
garten, and expanded with class-
es from pre-kindergarten for
three-year-olds through fifth
.grade.
In 2004, the school added a
sixth and seventh grade middle
school, created as a charter
school and funded by the Polk
County school board. It had
planned to add eighth grade this
year.
But a few hours after The
Oaks School board decided to
close, the charter middle school
Oaks Middle Academy also
decided to-shut its doors, effec-
tive July 31. Without'The Oaks
School as a feeder, the middle
school saw the prospect that its
enrollment would be inadequate
to keep it viable.

'No. 6: Then There Was One

In August, it was revealed
that by the end of the year, Polk
County's once-vibrant phosphate
industry would be down to a sin-
gle major player.


Bartow's Top 10

Stories at a Glance

These were Bartow's Top 10 Stories of 2005:
No. 1: Fire destroys two Main Street buildings.
No. 2: Main Street redesign project changes heart of
Bartow.
No. 3: Housing density issues draw neighbors' protests.
No. 4: City budget tight; stormwater tax created.
No. 5: Oaks School closes; files for bankruptcy.
No. 6: Mosaic becomes last phosphate industry giant.
No. 7: Landfill want to bury "commercial garbage."
No. 8: Local National Guard unit mobilized.
No. 9: John's Restaurant closes for third time.
No. 10: Lady Jackets win fourth straight title.


The Mosaic Company, created
in October, 2004 by the merger of
IMC and Cargill, announced that
it had reached a multi-millon-
dollar settlement with U.S. Agri-
Chemicals Corp. to terminate a
long-term agreement under
which IMC and Mosaic had sold
phosphate ore to USAC since
1994.
USAC, which operated a phos-
phoric acid plant in Fort Meade
and a dry fertilizer products
plant in Bartow, announced that
it would close both facilities.
That would leave Mosaic as
the only phosphate company
with production operations in
Polk County. CF Industries still
has an office at what used to be
its Bonnie Mine, but its process-
ing plant is north of Plant City in
Hillsborough County.

No. 7: 'Commercial
Garbage'

Owners of the Cedar Trail
landfill on E.F. Griffin Road met
privately with individual city
commissioners in August to dis-
close that they would seek a per-
mit from the state to accept "com-
mercial garbage" for burial in its
construction and demolition
landfill.
They said that since an agree-
ment with the city that resolved
litigation over the landfill prohib-


FIREFIGHTERS WAGED BATTLE against an intense blaze in
downtown Bartow on June 6. This building housing Jerue Trucking
and Gateway Insurance was destroyed, as was the building adjacent
to it. A third building on the north side of the 200 block of West Main
Street was saved. (File photo by Peggy Kehoe)


ited only the burial of "household
garbage" at Cedar Trail, the bur-
ial of "commercial garbage" was
allowed.
The city commission went on
record opposing the permit, as
did the Chamber of Commerce.
At year's end, the issue still
had not been resolved.

No. 8: Guardsmen
Mobilized

In early April, the 51 members
of Bartow's Battery A of the
Second Battalion,- 116th Field
Artillery, were mobilized for the
Global War on Terror.
The unit was. sent to Camp
Shelby, Miss., for further train-
ing, and then sent to Afghanistan
as part of Operation Enduring
Freedom.
Battery A is part of the
Tampa-based 53rd Infantry
Brigade, which was mobilized as
part of the'American mission of
training indigenous troops in
Iraq and Afghanistan to provide
protection for their own coun-
tries.
Although in a war zone, no
members of the unit have become
casualties.

No. 9: John's Closes Again

In May, the Bartow Family
Restaurant still, generally
referred to as John's, the, name
under which it operated for more
than half a century closed for
the third time.
The restaurant closed once
after it was identified as one of
several in Polk County at which
patrons were believed to have
contracted hepatitis.
It reopened, but was unable to
rebuild its once-robust customer
base.
Sold to two Wauchula restau-
rateurs one of whom was
named John it reopened as
Bartow-Family Restaurant.
It appeared to be doing a good
business, but it closed suddenly
as a result of disagreement on
operating policies by the two
owners. The, building remains
vacant, and is on the market.

No. 10: Lady Bugs
In a Four-Peat

In May, the Bartow Lady
Jackets softball team captured
their fourth consecutive Class 4A
state championship.
The title came with a 2-to-0
victory over Pembroke Pines.
It was a feat previously
achieved by only one other team.
The team finished the season
with a record of 30 victories
against only 2 losses.


Polk Now Offers Health Database


Polk County now has a live
computer information system
that allows health and social
services agencies to connect to a
shared database making it
possible for a single entry point
for the county's uninsured and
underinsured.
This Shared Client Informa-
tion System (SCIS) will assist
users in finding health promot-
ing programs in which they are
eligible.
It is designed to assist clients
in finding a medical home and to
reduce overall health care costs
by reducing inappropriate use,
such as emergency room visits


for non-urgent care.
In 2004, Polk commissioners
and the Polk HealthCare Alli-
ance submitted a Healthy Com-
munity Access Program (HCAP)
grant to the Health Resource
and Services Administration
(HRSA) for the development of
the SCIS.
The computer system entered
into phase I in early December
and will enter in to phase II
(when six more agencies will go
on-line) in January.
Agencies will continue to be
phased in until all those inter-
ested are linked to the system.
Eligible' agencies include


health or human service agen-
cies that provide services to low
income and uninsured/underin-
sured residents and are voting or
associate members of the Polk
Health Care Alliance (PHCA).
The Polk County HCAP pro-
gram manager will conduct
training sessions every two
weeks for new users, as well as
to teach new enhancements
made to the system.
For more information, log on
to the Polk HealthCare Alliance
webpage at www.polkhealthcare-
alliance.com or contact HCAP
Project Manager, JoAnn Fiora-
vanti at Community Health and
Social Services, 534-5382.


Eat Fresh Florida Produce All Winter


Did you know Florida pro-
duces 80 percent of the fresh
vegetables grown in the United
States during January, February
and March of each year?
It's true Florida is the na-
tion's winter salad bowl.
Two of America's most basic
and beloved salad ingredients
are, of course lettuce and toma-
toes, and Florida produces both
in profusion. Fresh Florida'to-
matoes are available from Sep-
tember through June, while the
lettuce season runs from Novem-
ber through May..
Look for these refreshing fa-
vorites at grocery stores and
community farmers' markets
across the state.
Florida farmers produce a
wide variety of lettuces mild,
crunchy romaine; vitamin-rich
bibb; delicate, tender leaf; tangy
escarole; crisp endive.
Escarole and endive make up
a whopping 40 percent of Flori-
da's lettuce production, and ro-
maine is the next most fre-
quently grown variety, at 15 per-
cent.
Likewise, Florida tomatoes
come in all shapes, sizes and fla-
vors. There are sweet little
cherry and grape tomatoes, pear:-
shaped romas, and big, round
beefsteaks and globes not to
mention all the colorful, intrigu-
ing heirloom varieties you find
at farmers' markets and road-
side stands.
Florida is the number one pro-'
ducer of fresh-market tomatoes
in the United States. It is also
the nation's main supplier of en-
dive and escarole. Tomatoes are
produced in Hillsborough, Mana-
tee, Palm Beach, Collier, Lee,
Hendry and Miami-Dade coun-
ties, while lettuces are grown
mainly in Alachua, Palm Beach
and Indian River. .,
"Florida growers harvested
vegetables for the fresh market
from 185,000 acres in 2004, with
sales exceeding $1,2 billion,"
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson, said.
"Thanks to Florida's warm cli-
mate and the hard work of those
in our agriculture industry, the
nation's grocery stores and cot-
ner markets are well stocked,
with fresh produce during event


the coldest months of the year."
Lettuce has a long and cele-
brated history in world cuisines
- it is featured in Egyptian
tomb paintings, and its praises
were sung by none other than
Hippocrates, the father of medi-
cine, in the fourth century B.C.
Tomatoes had a tougher time
gaining acceptance. Until the
mid-18th century, the tomato
was grown in North America
mainly as an ornamental, a curi-
osity. Educated people knew it
was edible, but many less well-
educated folks feared it.
It's a good thing we eventu-
ally overcame our fears be-
cause tomatoes are extremely
nutritious. One medium tomato
boast almost 400 milligrams of
potassium to help maintain
healthy blood pressure.
That same size, tomato offers-
40 percent of the vitamin C and
20 percent of the vitamin A your
body needs each day.
Red tomatoes also are rich in
lycopene, a powerful antioxidant
that may guard against colon,
lung and prostate cancer.
Lettuces can be surprisingly
good for you, too. Bibb lettuce
contains 36 percent of the recoin-
mended daily allowance of vita-
min A.
When shopping, look for to-
matoes with taut, bright, shiny
skin and no bruising or decay..
The best indicator of ripeness
and good flavor is fragrance, not
color, so use your nose, not just
your eyes, when making selec-
tions.
Regardless of their variety,
lettuces should show no brown
spots, wilting or scarring.
Since lettuces are delicate,
use care when transporting and
storing. Lettuces fare best if kept
cool and moist.
As soon as you get home from
the grocery store, go ahead and
rinse your lettuce, even if you're
Snot ready to use it yet. Wrap the
lettuce in paper towels, place it
in a perforated plastic bag and
refrigerate.
Uncut tomatoes, 'on the other
hand, should never be refriger-
ated. Cold temperatures destroy
their flavor and turn the flesh
mealy., Keep tomatoes on the
countertop, out of direct sun-

Plumbing Tool
When dealing with a clogged
toilet, the last thing anyone
needs in an ineffective plunger.
George Campbell of Lakeland,
however, has created a new solu-
tion.
The Clog Buster offers a near-
perfect fit and eliminates
splashes and spills, Campbell
said.
Campbell is currently offering
the idea for licensing to manu-
facturers.

light, stem side up.
Before using, wash your toma-
toes well. If a recipe asks you to
peel and seed your tomatoes,
This is a very easy thing to do.
Cut a small X through the
skin at the bottom of each to-
mato, then drop the tomatoes in
a pot of boiling water for about
10 seconds. Cool them off in a
bowl of ice water and peel the
skin should slip right off.
To seed the tomatoes, simply
cut in half and squeeze the seeds
gently into a bowl.
When slicing tomatoes, a ser-
rated knife is the best tool for
the job, .since a plain-edged knife
will usually just crush these soft
juicy fruits.
Like tomatoes, lettuce should
be washed carefully before serv-
,ing. Separate the 'leaves and
check for grit that could be
caught between them. Once the
washing is done, yop should take
care to dry the lettuce com-
pletely since dressing won't stick
well to wet leaves.
A salad spinner makes drying
lettuce really quick and easy, or
you just place the leaves in a col-
ander and wait for them to
drain.
For a simple, delicious winter
salad, fresh Florida lettuce and
tomatoes are all you really need.
But if you'd like to bump things
up a click, Florida produces lots
of other goodies you can add to
the mix.
Cucumbers, bell peppers, rad-
ishes, sweet corn. strawberries,
yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli,
cauliflower, carrots, mushrooms
and onions are just some of the
crops Florida harvest throughout
the winter season.
