Agricultui

By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

Polk's agriculture sector is a vital part
of the economy, a new study presented
Wednesday sai.
Biofuels and agriculture's contribu-
tion to the economy of the county were
discussed at Polk county commission
meeting.
Craig Evans, of Stewardship America,
Inc., presented the study, prepared for
the Polk County Farm Bureau.
The study was an update of one com-
pleted in 1998, and was funded by the
Board of County Commissioners, Florida
Farm Bureau Federation, Mosaic, Inc.,
Polk County Cattlemen's Association and
the Taxpayer League of Polk
I -^County.
Among facts found in
the study were:


_
I^l i -" .s


re Strong

Food and fiber is the second largest
industry in Polk County.
Polk County covers a lan d area of
1,874 square miles, and 52 percent of
that area is agricultural land. I.
Polk County has 3,114 fhrms, the
largest amount of any county in the
state. "
Polk is fifth among Florida's 67
counties in total.value of agricultural
products sold. Of 3,078 U.S. counties,
Polk rates 81st in the value of agricul-
tural products sold. .
Polk County farms, ranches and
agricultural operations produce $285
million in total annual sales. "
The county is the number one pro-
ducer of tangerines and the number two
producer of oranges in the United States.
Agriculture production 'offers the
county $605 million in an hual sales,
16,615 jobs and $297 million in payroll.
Agriculture processing accounts for
$2.5 billion in annual sales.' 7,351 jobs
and $343 million in payroll. Half the
value of this industry relies oin local pro-
duce grown in Polk, while th.,E other half
comes from produce that is irnported.
Phosphate mining and fertilizer pro-
duction account for $3.2 billicin in annual
sales, 10,563 jobs and $42-1 million in
payroll.
The study also found agricultural land
incurs an expense of 22 cents for every


Contributor To Polk Economy


dollar of tax money spent. Mining incurs
an expense of 27 cents and industrial
land is 36 cents.
The only land use studied which cre-
ates a deficit was other, which includes
,school and government buildings, which
do not generate tax revenues.
"LUnlike many counties in Florida,
Polk County has actually experienced an
increase in the amount of lands in farms
since 1992," the study found. "This date
underscores the strong economic stabili-
'ty that has characterized agriculture in
Polk County over the past decade."
In addition to citrus, the study found
the county's major crops were nursery
and greenhouse products, cattle, poultry
and milk and dairy products.
If agriculture was to go away in the
county, the loss is estimated at $1.85 bil-
lion in annual sales, 20,290 jobs and
$468 in annual earnings.
While the study was complete before
the hurricanes, Evans said the study did
take the conditions into account.
"The study shows the strength of Polk
County. The study shows the willingness
to adjust and readjust to overcome adver-
sity. It shows the stick-to-itiveness of the
agriculture economy in the county," he
said.
"That's always been the nature of the
farmer," Commission Chairman Jack
Myers said.

Ev a n s.
reminded the
commission it was
necessary to innovate to stay viable in
the agriculture market, prompting a dis-
cussion of alternative fuels.
"Citrus peels can be used to create
energy, and that would be a great way to
move forward," he said.

And while the county has not yet
explored that option, commissioners said


they would be discussing that possibility
later, even going so far as to discuss hold-
ing a workshop on the issue.

Commission Resumes


Vote on

Bartow city commissioners
have resumed taking a vote on
ordinances introduced on first
reading.
After only one meeting at which
they took no action on first read-
ing, commissioners agreed the
process served no useful purpose,
and kept the public from knowing
how they feel about the subject of
the ordinance.
At the commission's Feb. 6
tileeting, commissioner's dipensed
,,.ith' .Cotui,, ,.n mot St orrhnances,
when introduced on first reading.
"Some of the commissioners
had some concerns about that,"
Mayor Leo Longworth said
Commissioner Pat Huff said he
wanted to return to a first reading
vote, observing, "It lets the public
know our intent."
Commissioner Rosie Thornburg
agreed.
Commissioner Andy Laurent
went even further, saying that the
commission. should encourage citi-
zen comment on first reading so
that commissioners can cast "a
substantive vote."
Longworth noted that the com-
mission has changed its policies to
allow public comment during the
"audience participation" portion of
the agenda at the start of each
meeting.
"I agree; I think we should
vote," he added. "Let the public
know where we stand."
Commissioner Brian Hinton


First Reading


ment on first reading of develop-
ment ordinances, the developer
should be at the meeting, Dunlap
said.
"First reading has always been
perfunctory," he added. "I just
can't see doing it three times."
"I think it's important to let
people talk," Hinton responded.
People often aren't aware of zon-
ing issues until they read about
zoning board hearings in The
Democrat, he said.
Hinton added that he doesn't
want to turn away people who
,attend commission meetings with-
out listening to them.
Dunlap said the Florida
Supreme Court has gone so far as
to rule that city commissions can
refuse to hear comments from peo-
ple who live outside the city limits,
but added that he doesn't support
that concept.
He noted that a lot of residents
of Sago Palms subdivision and the
E.F. Griffin Road, whose homes
are outside of the city limits, have
spoken out at public hearings on
developments near their homes.
Without a formal vote, commis-
sioners agreed that they would
resume taking a vote at first read-
ing of every ordinance,, and would
allow comment during the "audi-
ence participation" part of the
agenda at meetings at which ordi-
nances are.to be considered on
first reading.


said, "Let's vote our conscience on
first reading." and not simply vote
for an ordinance on first reading to
move the process along to a vote
on second reading.
Longworth suggested that it
was permissible to vote for an
ordinance on first reading simply
to bring it, up for a public hearing
two weeks later.
"At the second reading public
hearing my mind can be changed."
he said
Commissioner Pat Huff said
that commissioners already are
aware of the contents of zoning
ordinances, because before they
come before the commission, they
are the subject of a public hearing
before the zoning board, and com-
missioners get minutes of those
meetings.
He suggested that public com-
ment be allowed when an ordi-
nance is considered on first read-
ing, not just at the "audience par-
ticipation" point on the agenda.
City Atty. George Dunlap said
he didn't see the point in allowing
public comment on first reading.
noting that the zoning board
already has held one hearing.
"I don't see why you and that
includes me have to listen to
the same arguments pro and con
three times," Dunlap said.
Mrs. Thornburg agreed, saying
she doesn't want to invite public
comment at first reading.
.If the commission allows com-


City May Explore Cost of Extending

Sewer Lines To Connersville
Bartow should consider extend- homes it would take to justify the Commissioner Brian Hinton said.


ing sanitary sewer lines to
Connersville rather than allowing
hundreds of new homes to be
served by septic tanks, in the opin-
ion of at least three city commis-
sioners.
Reliance on septic ,tanks was
cited as a major concern earlier in
the month by several Connersville
residents.
At last Monday's work session,
Commissioner Andy Laurent
raised the issue, asking how many


cost of extending sewer service to
the Connersville area, much of
which has been annexed into the
city limits. The city already has
extended water service to the
area.
He suggested that with the
number of developments already
being processed by the city,- and
more in the planning stages, it
might be cost effective to extend
sewer service to Connersville.
"It's worth looking into,"


Mayor Leo Longwort. agreed.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said the city's sewer line presently
goes only as far east as the Peace
River Village mobile home park,
just beyond Peace River on the
south side of State Road 60.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said a developer of homes on E.F.
Griffin Road is spending $1.3 mil-
lion to extend sewer service to his
development.

Mrs. Howze married Maurice
Howze in 1941, and the couple

Remembering her days as a
teacher, Mrs. Howze tells a story
of the time she allowed her
fourth grade students (one at a

room walls. One little boy re-
moved his clothing. When she

not want to get a whipping when
I got home for getting my clothes

Mrs. Howze said she remem-
bers one time when she had the
principal,- Mrs. Gabriel, check on
a second-grader who. never

time she was taking her turn for
second grade yard duty when a
little boy reported that one of his
fellow students had hit him with

local banks, the post office, police
and fire: departments, the li-
brary, to the Zolfo Springs Pairk,
Lake Placid tower to experience
an elevator, to Cypress Gard ns,
and train rides from Sebrink to
Winter Haven.
She said her favorite school
bus driver for the trips was Vida
Williams, because she was ,al-
ways so kind and had so much
fun with the kids.

75th Anniversary Nuggets

The Polk County Democrat

T he Democrat's conversion to offset printing tech-
nology in 1970 made possible a number of
improvements, perhaps the most dramatic of
which was improved photographic reproduction. In its
first two or three decades, The Democrat's news pictures
were printed from zinc engravings. The nearest engravers
were in St. Petersburg and, if memory serves, Kissimmee.
Every engraving cost several dollars, at a time when the
newspaper sold for a nick. The larger the engraving, the
higher the cost. The process, handled by mail, took several
days. For these reasons, there were few photos of breaking
news stories in the early years; most photographs were one
column "mug shots" Iof politicians and other newsmakers.

Operation Cleansweep BHS Hosts Career And

Offers Pesticide Disposal College Fair Tomorrow


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
today that his department and
the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP) are
joining forces to collect and
safely dispose of cancelled, sus-
Spended or unusable commercial
Pesticides for the sixth annual
Operation Cleansweep.
"The program benefits small,
family farms by relieving the
costly burden of proper pesticide
disposal," Bronson said. "Offer-
ing free pick up and disposal pro-,
vides greater protection for the
public and the environment.
This program enables the state
to effectively target pesticide
clean up in areas where the de-
mand is greatest."
Improper pesticide disposal
can pose risks to human health
and the environment, particu-
larly the state's water resources.
The program offers farms,
nurseries, golf courses and pest
:control companies a one-time,


safe and economical method to
dispose of unused, cancelled or
banned pesticides such as DDT,
lead arsenate, chlordane,
toxaphene and parathion.
This year's program has al-
ready collected more than 80,000
pounds of pesticides from 26
counties. Last year, the program
collected 79,000 pounds of pesti-
cides throughout the state.
To participate in "Operation
Cleansweep," commercial pesti-
cide applicators can call the De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services toll-free at 1-
877-851-5285; or for more infor-
mation, visit the Department of
Environmental Protection's web-
site at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/
waste/categories/cleansweep-pes-
ticides/.
Homeowners wishing to dis-
pose of pesticides are encouraged
to contact their local Household
Hazardous Waste program or

more information.

Bush Should Listen


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

Monroe Brannen: Master Politician


We have often told politicians:
Ignore your enemies, if you like, but pay
attention to your friends.
It is time for President Bush who has
never asked for our advice and perhaps
never will to do the same.
In a decision that the White House now
says President Bush didn't know about
until it became a national political contro-
versy, the United States government has
consented to'the sale of a British company
that manages American .ports to Dubai
Ports World, which is owned by United
Arab Emirates.
Clearly, riot every Arab nation, let alone
every person of Arabian heritage, is an
enemy of the United States. While the gov-
ernment of the UAE is an American ally in
the Global War on Terrorism, it is difficult
to overlook the fact that two of the Sept. 11
terrorists came from that country.
President Bush and the relatively few
national leaders who support the contract
say the perception of danger from UAE
management of ports is, misleading.
Perhaps it is.
But one of the first rules of. management
- and politics is that perception carries
more weight than reality., .
While American security efforts include
searching United States Senators flying
out of Washington and examining the
shoes of grannies in wheelchairs, the vast
majority of cargo containers entering
American ports reportedly are not inspect-
ed.
We suggest that the possibility for
importation of weapons that could be
used against Americans is far greater in.
shipborne cargo containers than in,
Granny's tennis shoes. ,. ... -: ....


Clearly, the American people want other
Americans, or at least staunch American
allies, running American ports.
Both the Senate majority leader and the
Speaker of the House, the most powerful
Republicans in Congress, have come out
publicly against UAE-based management
of American ports.,
Our own Republican Congressman,
Adam Putnam, usually a close ally of the
President, said last week:
"No matter how good this sounds in the
bowels of the White House,. this is a lousy
idea."
It appears likely that if President Bush
vetoes a law to prohibit UAE interests
from taking over American ports, the
Republican-dominated Congress will
override the veto.
It is not just hostile Democrats, but the,
President's own Republican base, that is
rallying against the proposal. : .
President Bush may be justified in ignor-
ing, his. critics from the opposition party,)
but when his own partisan .colleagues tell
him it's "a lousy idea," he should listen.

In Polk County political cir-
ces, the name Monroe is like
the name Cher in Hollywood.
There is no need for a last
name.
For nearly 16 years, Monroe
Brannen was, Polk County'rs
sheriff, its chief, law enforce-
ment officer. The department
was a fraction of its present size,
as was the population of Polk
County. Neither Brannen -
practically everybody called'
him MUN-roe, not Mon-ROE -
nor his department were as
sophisticated as, today's sher-
iff's office.
We generally endorsed one-
of his opponents in his five
campaigns for office, not out of,
lack of respect for the man, but
in the belief that a more sophis-
ticated law enforcement officer
would be better in the job.
Our endorsements never
attacked Monroe, nor did he
take our support for his oppo-
nents personally. It is, a wise
politician who makes the dis-
tinction between honest dis-
agreements and personal
attacks.
Monroe was sheriff when I


got out of the Army and
returned to Bartow in 1964. The
police beat was one of my major
responsibilities.
I seldom had direct contact
with the sheriff.
Each Monday and Thursday
morning, I would call on his
chief deputy, J.E. DeReus, to see
what had transpired since our
last issue.
He would tick off the three or
four felonies that had been
reported in the county iii'as
many days a tractor stolen
from a barn in one part of the
county, a barroom brawl in
another and tell me if there
were any loca connection to the
crimes. '
One day I called him and
said: "Chief, I couldn't claim to
be your friend if I didn't tell you
that we're publishing an editor-
ial critical of your department
today."
"If you're criticizing us,,we
deserve it," he replied without
hesitation.
Many of Monroe's people
served 'him well, and Eddie
DeReus was one of them. A few
fellshort of the mark, and it was


that chink in the armor that
finally led to his defeat after
four terms in office.
One of those who represent-
ed him well was an 18-year-old
whom he hired in a non-sworn
capacity, and swore in as. a
deputy a year later, Grady Judd.
I saw Monroe infrequently in
the years after he left office. I
introduced myself to him each
time, and he always greeted me
warmly, though I can't believe
that he actually remembered
..me .
The politicians in: him
prompted him to greet every
stranger like along-lost friend.
A veteran law enforcement
officer for whom I have great'.
respect has told me several
times that the ideal sheriff
would have the political skills
of Monroe Brannen and the law
enforcement skills of Larry
Crow.
That is a fair analysis of both
men, and a tribute to them both.
Monroe died last week at the
age of 91. I have no doubt that
he is now reunited with many
friends whom he actually does:
remember.

Keep Polk's Boot Camp


BARTOW It appears that
some politicians have targeted all
boot camps for possible closing
based on problems that have
occurred at one boot camp. This
isn't fair. .
The local Polk Sheriff's Boot
Camp is an effective, efficient and
very successful program, For our
region to lose, this wonderful
resource because of a feeding
frenzy of politicians and a few'
distorted media/ editorial reports
would be tragic.
I strongly agree that the terri-
ble event reported to have
occurred at the boot camp in Bay
County should be thoroughly
investigated. If improper behav-
ior resulted in the death of the
young man there; I would sup-
port criminal charges for all
involved. If there were evidence
of significant wrongdoing, at that
or at any youth facility, I would
recommend the closing of the
facility involved be strongly con-


sidered.
What I cannot support is the
unfair action of lunmping together
all boot camps in Florida and
then associating, excellent pro-
grams with programs that may
have serious problems. The Dept.
of Juvenile Justice should redou-
ble the efforts to monitor all
department-operated facilities
with regard to the safety and well
being of incarcerated youth.
It has been our experience that
incidents of violence, assaultive
behavior and the potential for
abuse are far more frequent in the
DJJ sites served by for-profit con-
tractors than in our boot camp,
where such,incidents are almost
non-existent (less than a regular
secondary school).
I would encourage legislators,
educational leaders, law enforce-
ment officials, clergy, parent
groups and other citizens in our
community with a concern for at-
risk youth to indicate their strong


support for the Polk Sheriff's
Boot Camp while there is still
time.
The partnership between the
Polk sheriff's department and the
school board has created a pro-
gram which consistently receives
the highest possible ratings in all
areas from state auditors, pro-
vides top quality instructional,
vocational and rehabilitative pro-
grams. These programs have
received recognition and accla-
mation statewide and nationally.
I would suggest that political
officials or media representatives
with any doubt about the overall
excellence of the Polk Boot Camp
arrange for a visit to the facility.
I'm certain that the young men
assigned there and their families,
as well as the dedicated teaching
faculty and staff, the military
training specialists (drill instruc-
tors) and mental health staff, will
demonstrate the great value of
the program.
In my 34 years working with
at-risk youth in school settings, as
well as correctional and thera-
peutic settings, I have been
involved with numerous pro-
grams that provide services to
troubled kids. I would place the
Polk Sheriff's Boot Camp among
the most humane, effective and
successful programs I have ever
been associated with. The boot
camp is a significant asset to our
community. Lets keep it.

premises of : dignity, retired
Marine Sgt. Larry McLaughlin
has diligently pursued authority
and permission to erect the mili-
tary monument on a site at a rest
area on I-4.
In accomplishing permission
to place the Iwo Jima monument,
authority had to be. established
by Florida laws.
Larry, through his tireless
efforts and dedication, obtained
the support of Rep. John Stargel


,and Sen. 'Paula Dockery which
Resulted in a bill allowing mili-
tary monuments to be placed at
highway rest areas across the
state of Florida.
When the monument is relo-
cated on the hill at the rest area of
I-4, the American flag will be
positioned at the top.
Thanks to Larry Mclaughlin
and his many supporters for a job
well done.

It's true-the kitchen is the heart of the home. Ever notice
how people always gather there? Whether baking treats, fixing
dinner or spending time with family and friends, the kitchen
is my favorite place to be. Since my day job is senior culinary
specialist for the Nestl Te7st Kitchens, you can bet I love to stir
things up. This space lets me pass along to you some of my
best recipes, tips and baking secrets.

Spicy Soup
Satisfies

Good and good for you? Cross my heart! To cele-
brate American Heart Month, satisfy your family
with a substantial supper soup that's big on flavor.
Corn Chowder with Poblano is spiked with onion,
garlic and lively poblano chile. Poblano is a robust
chile, contributing deep flavor and "just enough"
heat to make any dish interesting. Fat-free evapo-
rated milk gives this sturdy chowder a creamy tex-
ture without added fat. Golden sweet corn con-
tributes to the flavor of this hearty soup, with red
bell pepper adding color. Add a crusty loaf of bread,
and top off dinner with fresh strawberries for
dessert.

Chile Chat
v Chili or chile? Chili isthe spicy meat-and-bean
soup enjoyed everywhere in the US. Chile is any of
the mild-to-fiery peppers that add pep to many
dishes.
V' Chiles vary in type. size, color, shape and heat
intensity. Jalapeno, sertano and habanero are
small chiles that can be quite hot. Poblanos are
larger and milder than their smaller cousins, but
still carry'a bit of "bite".
V Purchase chiles fresh, dried or canned. Check
the ethnic food aisle in your supermarket. or for a
wider variety shop at a Mexican or Latin grocery.
V' Spicy oils contained in chile skin and flesh may
irritate your skin. I always %ear disposable gloves
Found in the pharmacy department of the super-
market when handling chiles-seeding, removing
veins and chopping.

5:05cvl 95-RH/WCS
ORDER
Plaintiff has filed a-motion to authorize

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.
1 665, 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
publicaiorn without.the missing Defendant
should he fail to respond. 28 U.S.C.
1655.
Because Plaintiff has adequately demoi-
strated that personal service has not been
effective and that further efforts at per-
sonal service are not practicable, Plaintiff's
motion is granted. Plainfiff 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, p2006.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED::
1. Plaintiff's motion, doc. 1,0, is
GRANTED.
2. Pursuant 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,,
fbr not less than once a n eek 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,
