County May Adopt Stronger Ethics Rules


In th wake of scandals at.the
national level over the influence
of lobbyists on members of
Congress and the creation of
stiffer rules at the state level,
Polk Cointy commissioners may
adopt stronger rules for them-
selves. '
"It' 'i c mipl'e:; i-u iu:, t's not
something you can do in a sound
bite." said Commissioner Randy
Wilkinsun, who brought up the
subject..
The city of Tampa and the
Hillsboiough county commission
both are working on new ethics
rules, he said, suggesting that
Polk might adopt something simi-


lar.
Hillsborough, he said, requires
disclosure of contractor contacts
with county officials.
Wilkinson :said the county's
policies prohibits employees from
accepting gifts "if they think it
might influence them."
Even that policy.does not
extend to commissioners, he said.
Commissioner Bob English
disagreed with Wilkinson.
He said that the county has a
$1.3 billion budget, calling the
ethics discussion "a bunch of non-
sense.
"I got two boxes of candy and
some fruit last year, and most of


that was eaten by the staff," he
said. He moved'to table the dis-
cussion, but his motion died for
lack ofa second.
"I think it needs to be done."
Commissioner Paul Senft said of
stronger ethics rules. "Citizen
advocacy is important. We don't
need a real complicated system."
It is important for government
"to guard'the trust of the people,"
he said.
He quoted from a letter sent by
U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite
saying that she supports ethics
reform, but does not want a ban
on gifts that would require mem-
bers of Congress to refuse -to


accept a hat from a Boy Scout
troop for display in their office.
Wilkinson said, "Events and
meals create an opportunity for
influence." but added. "I don't
think there's corruption."
"We went to the citrus dinner
should that be 'forbidden?"
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
asked.
':No, I would say that would be
okay," \Wilkinson replied.
Wilkinson suggested that the
commission should hold a work
session on the topic, and Myers
asked him to submit a specific
proposal.


THIS PAIR OF SHOES and

tal remains wrapped in a blanket

CRA District Unlikely

For Scenic Highway


Could a program designed to
eliminate "slum and blight" con-
ditions be used to preserve the,
natural beauty along Scenic,
Highway in eastern Polk County?
Polk County officials are
impressed by the novel approach.
but doubt that it will fly.
Commissioner Rand:'
Wilkinson said Lake Wales City
Nlgr. Tony Otte has suggested cre-
ating a community redevelop-
ment agency for the Scenic
Highway area to create revenues
to purchase "viewshed" area?
along the highway.
Wilkinson said there are some
drug houses on the highway
south of Babson Park that would
help qualify for "slum and blight"'
conditions.
When a CRA is created,
increases in tax revenues from



within the CIRA boundaries are
used to make improvements.
within the district.
"It's a very novel idea," County
Atty. Joseph Jarred said. "It's
going to be a tough row to hoe.
legally speaking."
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said "it would be a stretch" to
establish a finding of "slum and
blight" as a way to purchase
viewshed property.
"The Ridge has been identified
as a 'must protect' area for the
en ironment." he added
Commissioner Paul Senft said
the Legislature will consider
"new and tighter definitions for
slum and blight." making it hard-
er for cities to e-tablish CRAs.
"It's a novel idea" to raise
money for the 35-mile Scenic
IHighway corridor, he said.


Spirit of Bartow Awards Honor Local Leaders, Committees


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

Five individuals and two
groups were given this year's

Commerce O.J. Breakfast last
Thursday.
Winners were the Magic on
Main committee, the Relay for
SLife executive committee. Myrtice
Young, Trish Pfeiffer, Jennifer
Daniels,: Larry Tucker, and
George Harris.
The awards are presented each
year byi Community National
Bank.


The Magic on Main event on
Nov. 19, 2005, celebrated the
reopening of downtown Bartow
after an-extensive $2.8 million
streetscaping project. The project
was undertaken by the
Community Redevelopment
Committee (CRA) in conjunction
with the City of Bartow.
CRA chairman Mayme Clark
led the committee which raised
funds for activities such as a'10OK
Family Fun Bike Ride;" a 5K dis-

Sears, Lea Ann Thomas, and
Myrtice Young.
The Relay for Life executive
committee has planned the event
for four years and raised more
than half a million dollars for the
American Cancer Society during
that time. Bartow often raises
more money than other Polk
cities which are much larger. This
committee was until recently
chaired by John Hutto, who


stepped down for new chairman
Neal Duncan.
The committee also includes
Ernie Cooper, K.C. Bouchillon,
Jerryi Hawthorne. Carolyn
Gorman, Candy Grubbs, Lisa

Foundation, the Communiity
Advisory Board .of Bartow

also has served as the secretary
and. treasurer of the Central
Florida Development Council-

istration, he enrolled at the Cin'-

an associate school of the Cincin-
nati College of Medicine, where
he was a member of Pi Sigma
Eta Fraternity, National Morti-
cians.
The Moodys owned and oper-
ated the Moody Funeral Home
from 1965 until 1995, when they
retired to enjoy being with theit
son, his wife, and their two
grandchildren. They have en-
joyed extensive travel since that
time.

75th Anniversary Nuggels

The Polk County Democrat

T he new 12-page Goss web offset press that The
Democrat purchased in 1970 was quieter, safer,
and probably a little faster than the 16-page letter-
press equipment that it had replaced, but reduction in
page capacity meant more press runs to produce the same
number of pages. And to print spot color (black and one
other color), one unit had to be devoted to color, reducing
the page capacity to eight pages in one press run. In 1997,
a fourth printing unit was purchased, restoring the 16-page
capacity. A factory rebuilt unit, it cost as much as all first
three printing units which were purchased new in 1970. In
March of 2003, The Democrat purchased a four-color
printing unit, manufactured to order, making it possible to
print full-color photographs and advertisements on the
front and back pages of each 16-page section, and spot
color on two inside pages. It was by far the largest single
investment in equipment in the history of the newspaper.

St THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Ex Post Facto Laws: An Ex-Con's Recipe for Success


Constitution Remembered


We have observed a number of times
that the more we read about Hillsborough
County politics, the more respect we have
for Polk County politics.
That was our reaction when we read last
week that Hillsborough's clerk of courts
has decided not to refund hundreds of
thousands of dollars in traffic fine over-
charges.
According to Mother Trib, about 22,000
motorists were in line to receive $618,000
in refunds for fines that they paid which
exceeded the amount on their traffic tick-
ets.
SThe clerk's office, under the administra-
tion of a prior clerk, established a practice
of collecting fines based on the penalties in
place at the time the fine was paid, not at
the time the infraction occurred.
On Oct. 1, the fine for running a red light
went from $60 to $125.
A Dade City motorist complained to The
Tampa Tribune that she tried to pay her
fine before Oct. 1, but was unable to do so
because the clerk's office was months
behind in posting tickets to its computer
system.
By the time Shannon Gobel's ticket was
posted, the new fine was in effect:
Courts Clerk Pat Franks originally said
the overcharges would be refunded, but
then changed her position, based on a
lawyer's opinion.
The Tribune checked into the practices
in Florida's 67 counties, and found that
only two counties Hillsborough and
Monroe were collecting fines based on
the theory that the date of collection, not
the date of the infraction, determined the
fine.


Several clerks contacted by The Tribune,
including Polk's Richard Weiss, said they
interpreted the law to mean that the
applicable fine was the one in place on the
.date of the infraction.
The issue stirred vague recollections of
high school studies of the United States
Constitution, which expressly prohibits
bills of attainder and ex post facto laws.
That, in turn, sent us to our 2,663-page
Webster's Third New International
Dictionary.
It defines ex post facto law as: "a crimi-
nal or penal statute that imposes a punish-
ment for an act not punishable when corm-
mitted, or alters to the defendant's disad-
vantage the punishment described at the
time of the act."
Okay, we don't make the big bucks for
interpreting laws, but this one looks to us
like a no-brainer.
You violate the law today, you suffer
today's penalty.
It's a matter of fairness and logic; it's
also found in the Constitution.

AFTERTHOUGHTS: LIFE, LESSONS & HUMOR By C. J. MOUSER

'You Should See Your Face...


My kids are not above having
fun at my expense.
Pranks add practical jokes are
a part of my daily existence, and
you would think by now that I
would be able to spot a ruse com-
ing a mile away. Fortunately for
them, I'm just as gullible today as
I was 10 years ago.
The two oldest walked in last
week with a fistful of $20 scratch-
off lottery tickets.
"What in the world?" I
demanded.
"We bought one," Jill said,
"and we kept winning enough to
buy more."
"So how did it all end up?"
"The last ticket was worth
$4,300."
$4,300!
Then it dawned on me that
they didn't seem very excited
about such a windfall.
"So -where's the money?"
They exchanged baleful looks.
"We can't find the ticket," Jake
said.
"Are you telling me that you
won more than $4,000 and you
lost the ticket?"
"That's pretty much it."
"I don't understand!"


"We scratched it off and took it
inside the store to have the guy
check it and he confirmed our
win. From that point we don't
know what happened to it," Jake
said. (How he kept a straight face
is beyond me.)
There was a very long silence.
"You checked in the Jeep?"
"We checked."
"You looked through all the
other tickets .'. just in case it got
mixed back in?"
"We looked through them
three times," Jill confirmed.
"Then there's only one thing
that could have happened. The
guy switched tickets on you!"
It wouldn't be the first time
someone took advantage of a
couple of youngsters. Besides,
they were my kids, I had to
believe what they were telling
me. Surely they wouldn't play
such a mean trick on me.
Would they?
"You, uh ... you guys would-
n't be messin' with me would
you?" I asked, just in case.
"Yeah!" said in stereo and fol-
lowed by some very sincere
laughter.
I just stared at them.


"I knew I should have adopted
y'all out when you were still little
and cute. Now I'm stuck with
you."
More laughter.
"You should seen your face!"
Jake declared.
If I've heard this statement
once I've heard it a thousand
times.
"So where did the tickets come
from?" I said, tossing the stack on
the coffee table.
"Somebody threw them away.
We had most of them checked but
there were no winners," Jake
said.
After they sat and laughed and
poked fun at me for another 10
minutes they got ready to leave.
"Take care of your trash, before
you go," I said, pointing at the
stack of lottery tickets.
"I'll throw them away when I
get back. Man, you should see
your face right now," Jake said,
laughing again, and then they
were gone, leaving me alone in
the living room with Steve Irwin
the crocodile hunter, who was
hovering over a large female
crocodile with a paternal grin.
The croc was holding a tiny baby


croc in her mouth, moving it ten-
derly from one place to another.
"She's gooooorgeous, isn't she,
mate? And what a good mom!"
Steve declared in his lovable
Aussiefashion. ,
"Yeah, she's a real doll," I said
to the television. "I wonder how
she can hold her young in her
mouth without eating them. Wait
'til they're teenagers..."
I don't know exactly when I
picked up the tickets. It was a
waste of time, wasn't it there
were no winners. But just the
same, I started checking them,
thinking about all the things I
should have been doing instead.
I had gone through at least 20
of them while Steve crooned to
his big lizards in the background.
The fourth to the last ticket gave
me pause. It seemed to be a win-
ner. I read the directions again
just in case I had misunderstood.

Match any of your numbers to the
winning numbers and win the prize
under that number.

One of my numbers was a
four. One of the winning num-
bers was a four. I peered closely


at the numbers and even took
them into better light just to make
sure, and then slowly removed
the scratch-off ink to reveal my
prize.
It was a $20 winner.
I couldn't wait for the kids to
get home.
"The joke's on you guys," I
said the minute they walked in
the door.
"What do you mean?" Jill
asked.
"One of those tickets was a $20
winner."
"No way," Jake said.
"Way," I replied, and offered
the ticket as proof.
"Cool!" he said.
"No need to get excited. It's
mine now. Whoever bought them
and threw them away had their
chance. You had your chance. I
had my chance, and I made it pay.
You snooze, you lose," I said
finally. He realized I was right,
and his face fell, and suddenly I
understood what it was that they
got out of playing tricks oh me.
"Man, I said giggling, "you
should see your face right now."
I really couldn't resist.

BEA Student Chosen As

Ambassador To Australia


Eleven-year-old Bartow Acad-
emy student Jayme D. McKin-
nish, daughter of Dr. James R.
and Cindy McKinnish of Fort
Meade, was recently accepted as
a member of the People to People'
student ambassador program to
Australia and New Zealand in
June.
The objective of the program
is to promote international un-
derstanding while building lead-
ership skills among America's
youth.
The program was started in
1956 by President Dwight D.
Eisenhower. The U.S. and Soviet
Union were engaged in a "cold"
war and a major nuclear arms
race. President Eisenhower be-
lieved that. if given a chance, or-
dinary individuals could change
how citizens of different coun-
tries saw each other.
By going into each other's
,homes, schools and places of
worship, people would see that,
although we are all different, we
are also alike in that everyone
has similar values, goals and
dreams.
President Eisenhower called
together a special White House
conference of the top 100 na-
tional business leaders who
joined him in creating the People
to People initiative. Other inter-
national programs to come out of
'this effort are the Sister Cities,
Project HOPE and Pen Pal pro-
grams.
The goal of student ambassa-
dors is to represent the best of
America "hope. courage, open-
ness and a love of peace.
McKinnish's 15-day experi-
ence includes meetings with gov-


Sernment officials, interaction
with other students her age,
spending time with Aborigine
and Maori tribes, snorkeling the
Great Barrier Reef, and many
other educational activities.
.People to People student am-
bassadors are carefully inter-
viewed and evaluated before
their acceptance. She looks for-
ward to broadening her horizons
and perspectives of the world
and gaining a better understand-
ing of the South Pacific Islands
history and its relationship with
other countries.
As an ambassador, she can
earn high school and college
credit because of the many edu-
cational elements in the pro-
gram.

Be Aware Of Radon's Dangers


, Polk County Health Depart-
ment (PCHDI. in cooperation
with the Florida Department of
Health iDOHi and the U.S. En-
vironmental Protectio(n Agency.
iEPAi. is stressing the impor-
tance of identifying and mitigat-
ing elevated indoor radon in
homes and buildings statewide
Radon Awareness Month is
designed to educate Floridians
about their indoor-based radi.i-
tionexpoStuie status.
"Exposure to elevated indoor
radon is dangerous to the health
of all people-in Florida, so it is
important to gain as much
knowledge as possible about this
very important but silent haz-
ard," said DOH Secretary,Dr. M.
Rony Frangois. "Floridians, I'
urge all of you to please consider
protecting your families by get-
ting your home tested for radon."
Radon is a naturally occur-
ring, invisible, odorless and ra-
dioactive gas emitted from soils.
While outdoor levels produce lit-
tle risk, higher concentrations
found indoors present potential


health hazards.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion, "indoor radon is the second
leading cause of lung cancer in
the United States and the lead-
ing cause among non-smokers.
Each January, EPA and its na-
tional partners work to raise
awareness about radon and the
importance of testing espe-
cially in homes and schools."
According to the National
Academy of Sciences. "radon
causes approximately 21,000
deaths nationwide each year.
Florida Consumer Fraud Watch
calculates that. 750 Florida resi-
dents died last year from long-
term elevated indoor radon expo-
sure,"
To prevent dangerous rad6n
exposure, DOH and EPA sug-
gest:
All homeowners test their
homes for radon. Test kits are
available at several retail outlets,
and on the internet. In,Polk
.County, test kits are available
through the Polk County Health


Department fur $15 and can be
obtained at 225 Ave. D, NW in
Winter Haven.;
DOH-certified radon meas-
urement contractors c:in aido be
hired to test homes.
Address any radon-related -
problems immediately this
can be done tfo a relatively low
cost.
New homes should include
radon-resistant. features which
can be easily and inexp:n iiivly
installed dwing initial co.nstrue-
tion. These features ari' espe-
cially important in areas revport-
ing elevated radon levels.
For more infbt nation about
radon, visit the DOH Web site at
www.doh.state.fl.us and select
radon from the drop downi box or
contact the DOH Radon Hotlhne
at 1-800-543-8279.
Contact the Polk ?County
Health Department Radiolufogical
Health Unit at 291-5204 for in-
formation,on radon testing pro-
cedures.

IDA
PANAMA CITY DIVISION
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Plaintiff,
vs.
HERBERT L HOPE, JR., et al.,
Defendants.
CASE NO:
5:05cv195-RWWCS
ORDER
Plaintiff has filed a motion to authorize
service by publication and to extend the
deadline for service of progress. Doc. 10.
Plaintiff has demonstrated that reasonable
efforts were undertaken to serve Defen-
dant Herbert L. Hope, Jr. through waiver
or service and formal service of process
and, thus, Plaintiff has been unable to lo-
cate and serve Defendant Hope. Id.
The basis of this action as stated by Plain-
tiff in the instant motion is to seek "fore-
closure of a federal tax lien upon real prop-
erty owned" by the missing Defendant.
Doc. 10, p. 2. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
1665, when personal service is "not prac-
ticable," the Court may order the Defen-
dant to appear or plead in the action and
the order may be published rather than
personally served. The statute also per-
mits this actin to proceed after service by
publication without the missing Defendant
should he fail to respond. 28 U.S.C.
1655.
Because Plaintiff has adequately demon-
sftated that personal service has not been
effective and that further efforts at per-
sonal service are not practicable, Plaintiff's
motion is granted. Plaintiff is permitted to.
serve the missing Defendant by publica-
tion as specified in 28 U.S.C. 1655 and
the deadline for service is extended until
March 11, 2006.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED:
1. Plaintiff's motion, doc. 10, is
GRANTED.
2. Puisuant to 28 U.S.C. 1655, Her-
bert L. Hope, Jr. is ORDERED to an-
swer or otherwise respond to the amended
complaint, doc. 5 no later than March
31, 2006.
3. Having concluded that personal service
of this Order is not practicable, Plaintiff is
ORDERED to publish a copy of this Order
in newspapers of general circulation within
Bartow, Florida, and Grand Ridge, Florida,
for.not less than once a week for six con-
secutive weeks, beginning the week of
January 30, 2006.
4. Plaintiff shall also mail copies of this Or-
der to Defendant Herbert L Hope, Jr.
at: (1.) 4790 San Heath Road, Bartow,
Florida 33830; and (2) 7296.Boneyard
Road, Grand Ridge, Florida 32442.
5. The deadline for serving the missing Defen-
dant, Herbert L. Hope, Jr., is extended to
March 11,2006.
DONE AND ORDERED on January 20,2006.

New Rule Could Mean

Bigger Largemouth Bass


Anglers who fish Lake Kerr
will be able to keep smaller bass
.than in the past.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) passed a new slot limit
Wednesday for the Marion
County lake to allow anglers to
keep bass less than 15 or more
than 24 inches long.
However, the new rule re-
quires anglers to release imme-
diately any bass between 15 and
24 inches. Anglers may keep up
to three largemouth bass a day,
only one of which may be more
than 24 inches, under the new
rule.
Lake Kerr is a popular recrea-
tional lake in the Ocala National
Forest, and anglers there catch
plenty of largemouth bass. How-
ever, they're usually too small
too keep.
.The problem is the lake has
too many little bass that aren't
growing to keeper-size. Fisheries
biologists think the new slot
limit could help solve the prob-
lem.
The proposed slot limit will
accomplish a couple of things.
By allowing anglers to keep


the smaller fish, the new regula-
tion will reduce the number, of
small bass, which in turn will'
leave more food for the ones that
remain. More food means the
fish will grow into the 15- to 24-
inch range faster.
Biologists think the lack of
plentiful fish food in Lake Kerr
is one factor affecting the size
structure of its bass population.
In Florida lakes that have
abundant food, it typically takes
two to three. years for large-
mouth bass to reach 14 inches.
By contrast, it takes bass an av-
erage of six years to reach 14
inches in Lake Kerr.
"In a nutshell, this new slot
limit will mean anglers can keep
some of the small fish they
catch, and over time, this could
mean more, larger fish available
for catch and release," said Sam
McKinney, freshwater fisheries
biological administrator for the
FWC's Northeast Region.
Another benefit of the new
rule is the potential to increase
the number of trophy fish in the
lake, McKinney said.

FWC Creates More Family

Hunting Opportunities


Families will have more op-
portunities to hunt together on
public lands under a rule passed
by the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) in Gainesville.
Four additional wildlife man-
agement areas have added "fam-
ily hunts" to their list of hunting
opportunities for next season.
Those areas are Andrews and
Devil's Hammock, both in Levy
County, in the North Central Re-
gion; Dinner Island Ranch, in
Hendry County, in the South Re-
gion; and Lafayette Creek, a new
area in Walton County, in the
Northwest Region.
The family hunt format is a
weekend hunt, intended to pro-
vide mentoring adults and
youths with exclusive opportuni-
ties to hunt together on public
lands. One adult and up to two
youths can take part in these op-
portunities by obtaining a no-


cost family quota hunt permit.
To participate, youths must
be between the ages of 8 and 15,
and adults must be more than 18
years old. Youths must hunt un-
der the supervision of the adult,
and adults may only hunt in the
presence of at least one youth.
Five wildlife management ar-
eas will offer family hunts next
season, including Matanzas, in
St. Johns County, in the North-
east Region, which ran the suc-
cessful pilot program last year.
To apply for these family
hunts, interested parties must
submit' applications between
June 20 and July 7 at any li-
cense agent,' cianty tax collec-
tor's office, or online at
MyFWC.com/license.
Family quota hunt permit
worksheets will be available in
early June at MyFWC.com/hunt-
ing.

FWC Opens Two New Hunting
Areas In Northwest Region


In Gainesville, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) passed rules
Wednesday adding two new
wildlife management areas to
Florida's public hunting system
for the 2006-07 season.
The two new areas are Wa-
kulla and Lafayette Creek wild-
life management areas, both in
the Northwest Region.
Wakulla is 4,045 acres, and is
situated in northern Wakulla.
County, adjacent to Edward Ball
Wakulla Springs State Park.
The landowner of the property is
the Florida Dept. of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, Division
of Forestry, and it is part of the
Wakulla State Forest.
The Lafayette Creek area is
in Walton County and is a 3,160-
acre tract east of Eglin Air Force
Base. The Northwest Florida
Water Management District is
the landowner.
Beginning in the 2006-07
hunting season, both areas will
have open seasons for archery,

Camping will be allowed by per-
mit from the landowner; vehicles
may operate on named or num-
bered roads; and hunters may
use bird dogs and retrievers dur-
ing the small-game season.
All-terrain vehicles will be
prohibited on both areas.
The Wakulla area also will
have a special archery/muzzle-
loading gun season, and fishing'
and frogging will be legal year-
round.
The Lafayette Creek Wildlife
Management Area will have ad-
ditional hunting opportunities as
well, including a muzzleloading
gun season, general gun season
and the first family-hunt offered
in the Northwest Region.
Fishing and other recrea-
tional activities also will be per-
mitted in the daytime during
non-hunting periods.
