Development Moratorium .t.


Okay as a Last Resort,


Consultant Tells City


A building moratorium while
the city considers changes to its
zoning code is legal, but should
only be used "where you have a
significant issue," the city's plan-
ning consultant told a joint meet-
ing of the Bartow city commission
and the zoning board Wednesday-
night.
Gene Boles of the University of
Florida Dept. of Urban and
Regional Planning discussed land
use issues and philosophies with
the two boards for an hour and a
half Wednesday night.
"They're only acceptable for a
limited time while you're chang-
ing an ordinance; they can't be
indefinite," he said. They general-
ly can last from six months to two
years, but the city is subject to
lawsuits from developers.
"Moratoriums have their place;
they should be a last resort."
No decisions were made at the
meeting, and Mayor Leo
Longworth said that at the next
joint meeting, "we need to talk
about what we want" in the way
of development planning in
Bartow.
That topic was on the agenda
for Wednesday's meeting, but city


officials instead listened to what
Boles had to say, and questioned
him about a number of issues.
He told them that Florida's
comprehensive planning law "is
not design oriented," and cities
need to work with more than zon-
ing codes and capital improve-
ment plans to achieve a good out-
come.
Boles listed these principles of
"smart growth":
Encourage community stake-
holder participation.
Preserve open space.
Strengthen and direct devel-
opment toward existing commu-
nities.
Provide a variety of trans-
portation choices, including walk-
ing.
Provide a range of housing
choices.
Create ,"walkable" neighbor-
hoods.
Mix land uses.
Take advantage of compact
design.
Make development decisions
that are predictable, fair, and cost
effective.
"Density is not your enemy if
it's done right," he said.


'There's generally a place for
most things."
Commission Brian Hinton
asked, "If you have your core area
and you go out a mile or two and
build, a subdivision, is that urban
sprawl?"
"Yeah," Boles replied. "By
itself, typically it is.
"Having a development on sep-
tic tanks is a perfect example."
Zoning Board Member Gail
Schreiber asked Boles tp discuss
open space.
Use of open space can protect
environmentally sensitive proper-
ty, create recreation space in a
development,, and create parks
and plazas, he said.
Retention ponds can 'be
designed as open space, but gen-.
erally are not considered as such
for land use planning, he said.
Roads are hot counted as open
space.
Mayor Leo Longworth asked
what can be done about develop-
ments that are served by sub-
standard roads, particularly
when they are county roads, not
city streets.

Tax Talk Dominates


Polk District 4 Debate


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

(Editor's note: County
'Commissioner Paul Senft has
since announced that he will not
run for reelection.)

Recent county tax increases
were the main topic of debate at
Tiger Bay Club of Polk County
last week- with the four candi-
dates for Seat 4 on the county
commission presenting their
views.
Bruce Parker led the offensive
on incumbent Paul Senft, bring-
ing in several charts and hand-
outs about the tax and budget
increases in recent years.
Parker questioned where the
money was going, and said that
the tax increases were unneeded.
He told the audience that it was
their responsibility as citizens to
read the budget. A review of the
budget reveals that the taxes
were placed in funds that did not
explain their purpose, Parker
said.
He also attacked the commis-
sion for conducting a $6,000 pub-
lic survey about creating a
Municipal Services Taxing Unit
for the library system, and then


1.,.
~ --: 4.if~':1


creating the MSTU even though
the public was against it.
In response to a question from
the audience, Parker said that he
couldn't think of anything the
county needed to spend more
resou-ces oh. Any programs that
needed more financing could be
funded by siphoning resources
from other parts of the budget, he
said.
Senft disagreed, saying that all
of the tax increases were neces-
sary to pay for the services and
facilities needed in the county. He
said that the commissioners first
looked to impact fees so that
growth could pay for itself, but
even that was not enough, so they
raised taxes.
Senft said that the budget was
clear, and that even if monies
were being put in the general
fund, expenditures on specific
programs matched the taxes
gathered for those purposes.
For example, he said, the indi-
gent health care tax had not been
used properly for years, and the
system was forced to use funds
that had been set aside as a safe-
ty valve. The new half-cent indi-
gent health care tax approved by
the voters only will pay for indi-
gent health care, he said.


The library MSTU was created
to make the taxes for libraries
fair, Senft said. The cities had
been paying twice for the
libraries, once with city taxes,
again with county taxes. Since
the MSTU is in place only in
urinricoirproratj.d areas, all' t.a.pI
ers pay once, he'said.
Jean Reed, the only Democrat
candidate, said that she would
not have voted for MSTUs (one
for libraries, the others for parks
and other recreational facilities)
because they were poorly timed
after the hurricanes of 2004. She
said that she would have raised
impact fees first.
Republican candidate Martha
Santiago agreed that the MSTUs
were too much of a burden on the
people. She thought that school
libraries could help lessen the
load on the community libraries if
they were made open to the pub-
lic.

Accelerating Growth
Ms. Santiago said that in the
face of the increasing pressure on
infrastructure and water supply,
accelerating growth is a problem

Bartow To Join Polk


Water Cooperative


In a move geared to make Polk
County's city and county govern-
ments a more powerful force in
water management issues,
Bartow city commissioners voted
Monday night to join in a county-
wide water cooperative.
The co-op is an attempt to
insure that all citizens of Polk
County have an adequate water
supply in the face of unprecedent-
ed growth.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
told city commissioners that the
co-op will work with the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District on process-
ing water consumption permits
from Polk County.
The resolution acknowledges
that "the proper management
and local control of groundwater
resources of Polk County cannot
be accomplished without the
cooperation of all of Polk County's
local government entities."
It says that "it is much more
economically efficient and pro-
ductive for the county and city
governments to cooperatively
plan and manage water resources
collectively, especially as
resources in common, or that are


interconnected."
The commission also:
Heard Gerald Cochran urge
the city to seek historical preser-
vation funds to restore the old
Philip's Department Store build-
ing on East Main Street.
Noted DeLegge's report that
the police department union has
ratified a union contract, and that
the city is appealing an unfair
labor practice ruling regarding its
negotiation with the general
employees union.
Heard DeLegge report that
the city has been selected to
receive an award for its fiber optic
network.
Was told by DeLegge that
the city's old water treatment
plant behind the police station
will be demolished around April
25.
Recognized both newly-
appointed and outgoing members
of the Mayor's Youth Council.
Newly-appointed members are
Kimberly Bentley, Katherine
Mammel, LaTiesha Rivera, Coral
Owen, Christen Jackson, Anna
Mae Gibson, and Adam Scott
Lunn. Outgoing members are
Mackenzie Mitchell and


Christina Reece.
Presented proclamations rec-
ognizing the "Communities for a
Lifetime" initiative of the Florida
Dept. of Elder Affairs and desig-
nating April 23 to 29 as National
Crime Victim.Rights Week. Lynn
Bryan, crime victim advocate for
the Bartow police department,
said that in 2005, the department
assisted 125 crime victims.
Reappointed Floyd Heckert
to the library board.
Approved an agreement with
the county commission under
which the county will maintain
the portion of the Fort Fraser
Trail that is inside the Bartow
city limits.
Adopted higher rates to be
charged to developers for installa-
tion of underground electric lines
in subdivisions.
Approved an amendment to
the city budget.
Passed on first reading an
ordinance to zone a newly-
annexed 15-acre parcel of land on
E.F. Griffin Road as R-1-B (single
family residential) for develop-

County Creates Water


Cooperative With Cities


QUIET FOR NOW, the field and track at
Bartow Memorial Stadium will fill with tents and
walkers for the American Cancer Society Relay for
Life on Friday and Saturday. Bartow High School
Principal Ron Pritchard (left) and Relay Chairman
Neal Duncan hold one of the banners that will be
flying Friday night to welcome survivors of cancer
and supporters of the cancer fight. The stadium


seats in the background will be lit with luminaria
spelling the word "Hope." A new feature this year is
an appearance by Captain Fear, the mascot of the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will pose for photos and
sign autographs. While he is appearing for free,
sponsors are requesting small donations to benefit
the Relay fundraiser. (Staff photo)


Seeking to achieve strength
through a.unified approach to
water management issues, the
Polk County commission has
authorized creation of a county-
wide water authority made of
county government and Polk's 17
municipalities.
County Mgr. Mike Herr said
city managers have been sup-
portive of the concept, which
would allow Polk to go to the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District with a sin-


gle voice.
"Everybody acknowledges
there is strength in numbers,"
Commissioner Paul Senft said.
"The SWFWMD wants to work
with us.
"Trust and cooperation are the
key to solving these water prob-
lems."
Commissioner Sam Johnson
said it is essential that city gov-
ernments have confidence in the
county's staff leadership of the
co-op.


"It must be the most compe-
tent leadership we can have," he
said.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said, "It is more effective to coop-
erate instead of having 17 enti-
ties competing for water."
"It's a long, drawn-out
process," Commissioner Bob
English said. "We have to keep on
top of it. There are other people
competing for the water."

Dr. Heysek Speaks to Bartow
Lions About Prostate Cancer:


Prostate cancer is the number
one cancer among men in the
United States, with 220,900 new
cases estimated this year, Dr.
Randy V. Heysek, executive di-
rector of the Center for Cancer
Care and Research in Lakeland,
told Bartow Lions at their lunch-
eon meeting April 18.
The speaker recommended
that men older than 50 have a
PSA test annually as an early
warning system for the dreaded
disease.
"There is a growing body of
evidence confirming that pros-
tate screening leads to lower
mortality," Heysek said.
Treatment options include ra-
diation therapy, surgery, freez-
ing, hormonal therapy, and ob-
servation. Heysek said that mod-
ern day radiation treatment is


the equivalent of surgery.
"Surgery is no better an op-
tion than the others," he said.
"The cure rate varies from 60 to
90 percent on all techniques."
Persons seeking treatment for
prostate cancer, he said, should
become familiar with the side ef-
fects and recovery period.
"Be informed before treat-
ment," he said.
Increased in take of fruits and
vegetables, as well as vitamin E
and selenium, Heysek said, show
promise in reducing prostate
cancer incidence. Early detection
means better cure rates; organ
preservation is improving; pre-
vention is possible; and treat-
ments are more effective.
Bill Naberhaus introduced the
speaker. Lion Fred Egli pre-
sided.

play the piano during the pres-
entation..
The 16-year-old is home
schooled, a member of Hope
Homeschoolers, and is dial-en-
rolled at Polk Community Col-
lege., He said he chose this pro-
ject "because Florida Baptist
Children's Homes is an ex-
tremely valuable ministry to.the
community, and I felt I should
do something to help them."


Florida Baptist Children's
Homes was founded in 1904. It is
a nonprofit organization that
provides Christian homes for
boys and girls who desperately
need such a place to live.
Some of these children come
from homes where they were vic-
timized by neglect or by un-
speakable physical, sexual, or
emotional abuse; they were
caught up in a family crisis, dys-
function or turmoil; they were
abandoned or.orphaned; or their
parents/guardians could not care
for them, for any number of rea-
sons. Others ran away, or came
from insurmountable circum-
stances.
This ministry has six residen-
tial group-care facilities through-
out the state, including Lake-
land.
The fundraiser will feature
contemporary Christian music to
traditional hymns. The church's
drama team will present the
drama.

On Saturday, April 29, and
Sunday, April 30, Polk County
firefighters, police officers and
other first responders and their
families are invited to Polk Mu-
seum of Art to view'the new ex-
hibition entitled "Aftermath: Im-
ages from Ground Zero," Photog-
raphy by Joel Meyerowitz.
During the special weekend,
admission will be free. Museum
hours will be Saturday, 10 a.m.
until 5 p.m.; Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5
p.m.
The exhibition will be on dis-
play from April 22 through July

Joel Meyerowitz is one of the
most respected color photogra-
phers working today. His first
book Cape Light is considered a
S classic work of color photogra-


phy.
He has had one-person exhibi-
tions at the Museum of Modern
Art, the Art Institute of Chicago,
San Francisco Museum. of Mod-

On September 23, 2001, Mey-
erowitz took his camera to the
site on which the World Trade
Towers had stood. For the next
eight months he recorded the
process of clearing the wreckage
and coping with the tragedy. At
first denied permission to photo-
graph the site, Meyerowitz per-
sisted and became the only pho-
tographer able to work within
the wreckage. His efforts are a
testament to the power of docu-
mented-history.

beginning of the end for photographic darkrooms at
newspapers around the country. The next step was
the development of digital photography. The early digital
cameras were priced at $5,000 and up, putting them well
out of reach of community newspapers. Today, $500 will
buy an excellent quality digital ca me ra, nd adequate images
can be captured by cameras which cost $200 or less. Digital
photography has reduced the time required to get a photo-
graph from the camera to the newspaper page from hours
to minutes. Digital images can be transmitted by e-mail.
Though we have yet to do'it, it is possible to take a photo of.
a breaking news story with a cellular telephone and transmit
it wirelessly to the newsroom. The virtual. elimination of
newspaper photographic darkrooms has brought about new
economies and improved image quality, especially in color
photographs, It also has eliminated the environmental
problems associated with photographic cheniicals. (To be

Contract Awarded


Since the article in the Mu-
seum news about the service sta-
tion, much interest and talk has
gone on about different ones buy-
ing gas and other. articles such
as candy, there. I do appreciate
all the calls and information.
So many have asked when the
Museum will open.
We cannot answer the time as
it is taking so long to open the'
stored artifact boxes, finding
some of the articles in ruins.
Everything has' to be cleaned
and we have found that it is a
very. slow process.
We are oni\ring as fast as pos-
sible as we are having to pay
rent on that huge container that
is holding all the storage boxes.

An engineering contract that
may lead to four-laning and ex-
tension of Thompson Nursery
Road in the rapidly-growing area
northwest, of Lake Wales has
been approved by the Polk
County commission .
The county approved a con-
tract for $1,944.658 with Pitt-
man, Hartenstein & Associates,
Inc., for an alignment study and
preliminary design for improving
the road.
Chris Ray, county project
manager for the job, said the en-
gineers will draw plans for four-
laning the present road from
U.S. Highway 27 to Rifle Range


Road, and for building a new
four-lane segment from Rifle
Range to U.S. Highway 17. In-
cluded in the engineer's work
will be recommending the align-
ment for the new segment.
In addition to approving the
engineering contract, the com-
mission allocated $4.3 million for
acquisition of right-of-way.
Ray said the timeline calls for
one year for the engineering
study, followed by two years for
design work and another two
years for buying right-of-way.
Construction would follow,
five years from now, Ray said.

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

P patriotism? Mais Oui, Senor!

viders"


There used to be a saying
among photographers 'that
Polaroid would give you the
camera in order to sell you the
film.
And until digital cameras pro-
duced the instant gratification
previously associated with
Polaroid, there was more truth
than jest in that comment.
Today, color printers are fol-
lowing that same path.
We just purchased a high qual-
ity inkjet color printer for $129.99,
and a starter set of ink cartridges
for $157.96. And one of the exas-
perating things is that three-color
ink cartridges (at $34.99 each)
obviously don't run out of all
three colors at the same time. The
printer industry cleverly pack-
ages them three colors to the car-
tridge, so you throw them away
with two colors of ink still in it.
But color inkjet printers, like
Polaroid cameras, are not exactly
up there with food, electricity,


and gasoline as essentials to life,
so there's really no need to com-
plain. ',
With the most recent color car-.
tridge I installed in my printer.
there came a flyer promoting
templates for all sorts of patriotic
stuff that you could print in red,
white and blue. Not surprisingly,
the downloadable template
'comes free. .
With it, you can make bumper
stickers with an American flag
and messages like Land of the
Free, United We Stand. America
the Beautiful, and Home of the
Brave. There's a flag printed out
in the shape of a map of the
United States, with the message
From Sea To Shining Sea.
Another option allows the
image to be transferred to a T-
shirt.
The example in the fiver has
that USA-shaped flag, the mes-
sage "I'm a Proud American.'::
and the wearer's name, in this


case "Jonathon."
The first rule for spelling of
names is that there are no rules
for spelling of names. But I'll
have to say that of the several
people among my acquaintance
of that name, none spells it
lonathon. Frankly, Jonathon
sounds a little like some sort of
marathon involving portable toi-
lets, but that's probably just me.
Needless to say, all this red,
white and blue stuff doesn't use
much yellow ink, so you know
right away that close to one-third
of the price you pay for the car-
tridge is wasted. That doesn't
bother me; patriotism is not with-
out its cost.
What does sort of blow my
mind about this particular flyer
promoting the American flag and
all the patriotic messages is that
it's printed in English. Spanish
and French.


Reaction in Fort Meade to an applic
tion to put a sewage processing plant
the north side of the city can be summ
up in four words:
"Oh no! Not again!"
After years of battling a sewage pi
cessing operation by Vigiron, and lal
by N-Viro, on U.S. HFighway 17 just nor
of the city, Fort Meade residents final
secured closure of the odor-produci
operation.
Now a new operator, .Appalachi
Material Service, Inc., is seeking a pein
for a "Class B domestic wastewater resi
uals management facility" in the sar
area.
"Domestic wastewater residuals"
the spinmeister's term for sewage.
Undermost circumstances, the impo
on the area might be speculative; in Fc
Meade, there's a track record that shoN
thatthe odors from such a plant are nc
ious and inevitable.
In the words of Thomas Winkler, w:
owns property nearby, "The citizens
Fort Meade need to act quickly if they
not want people to 'smell' Fort Mea
long before they actually enter the city
Opponents ,are urging Fort Meade r
idents to contact the Florida Dept.
Environmental Protection office
Temple Terrace by Wednesda)y.
The address is:
Dept. of Environmental Protection
Southwest District Office
13051 North Telecom Parkway,
Temple Terrace, Fla. 33637-0926
The website of the U.S. Environment
Protection Agency lists the potential f
odors as being one of the disadvantage
of the sewage treatment technology pr
posed for the Fort Meade plant. Ar
assurance to the, contrary should 1
weighed against that warning.
The company's 'application seeks
permit, among other things, for fi'
207,000-gallon "mixing/ stabilizati<
tanks." That's a million gallons


ca- sewage being processed almost within
on sight of the Peace River, and upwind of
ed the city of Fort Meade.
The applicant, Appalachian Material
Service, Inc., gives assurances that its
ro- operation would emit far less odor than
ter its predecessors at the site. Perhaps it
th .would, but citizens of Fort Meade have
lly been burned twice 'ith the assurance
ng that little orno odor would be produced,
and are properly skeptical of promises
an fr6m vet another operator..
nit Even if'the process were pristine -
.d- and the experience with Vigiron and N-
nre Viro does not support that premise '-the
image of Fort Meade as "that little town
is .that takes sewage from all over central
Florida" is not exactly a Chamber of
act Commerce dream.
ort Presumably there is a need for such
ws facilities, but placing at the edge of a city
x- is unconscionable. Even in a high-growth
state like Florida; there are millions of
ho acres of undeveloped land :That's where
of such facilities should go.
do In the environmental vernacular, this is
de not a NIMBY issue --Not In My Back
" Yard; this is a NIABY issue Not In

of Fort Meade has been down this road
in with two previous operators.
The state should not allow a third to
open up on the edge of the city.

OUR READERS SAY

Run Government Like Which Business?


BARTOW 'Speculating
about operations that deal in mil-
lions or billions of dollars is more
intriguing to me than, for exam-
ple, the ,difference between price
of Florida and California straw-
berries in local stores.
So when the Wall Street
Journal reported last week that
the recently retired chief execu-
tive officer of the company now
known as Exxon-Mobil ,was
"compensated" more than $687
million c'er the past 12 years a
rate of $144,573 per day while he'
was CEO I reflected on the
declaration I often hear that
"Government should be run like
a business."
Many highly placed govern-
ment officials probably would
agree. They', like corporate chief
executive officers, oversee bil-
lion-dollar operations. If they


were paid on a basis similar to
the Exxon chief, our President
.Bush, for example, would likely
receive at least a half billion dol-
lars a year rather than the measly
about $400,000 that is provided to
him.
We can find plenty of exam-
ples. The current CEO of Home
Depot was compensated $14.5
million for a recent year. Should
we presume that he is more valu-
able to our nation than our
-President is? Should we run our
nation like a business and reward
the nation's chief executive offi-
cer with $14 million every year?
How much should the head of
our Internal Revenue Service
receive? His "enterprise" is big-
ger than is Home Depot or
Exxon.
It happens' that I own a bit of
Exxon-Mobile stock that current-


ly pays about 1.9 percent divi-
dends. If Exxoi's president
received compensation as our
President' does, my dividend
might go up a decimal or two.
But my little speculation is not
about a possible extra dollar for
me, but on the. amazing state-
ment by many that "Government
should be run like a business."
I presume that they do not
mean what they say, but intend to
mean that government should be
run as efficiently as a business.
Maybe so, but when a car manu-
facturer spends. multimillions a
'year on promotion in hope that I
will buy a new car sooner, or
hands out $144573 a day to one
person, I question even that posi-
tion.

Protect National Forests


LAKE WALES We've got to
move quickly if we're going to
block one of the biggest sales of
public lands and forests in
American history.
The Bush Administration is
putting the finishing touches on a
long list of national forests in 35
states that will be dismembered
behind closed doors in order to
raise a few quick bucks.
Unless we stop this scheme, a
third of a million acres of nation-


al forest lands will be stolen from
us forever.
Countless hiking trails, picnic
areas, fishing holes, and wildlife
viewing spots that now belong to
you and' me will be sold off at
rock bottom prices to waiting
timber companies and develop-
ers.
But what makes this scam
especially atrocious is the target.
Our national forests are truly "the
people's heritage." For millions


of hard-working families from
Maine to California, America's
national forests provide the only
opportunity to enjoy the great
outdoors.
The people of Tennessee stand
to lose 3,000 acres. Idaho will lose
26,000 acres. California will lose
75,000 acres, totaling 800,000
acres.'

Bartow Joins Commemoration of 2006

National Crime Victims' Rights Week


Lyn Bryan, victim advocate
coordinator for the Bartow Police
Department, accepted a procla-
mation from the Bartow City
Commission during a meeting,
April 17, proclaiming the week of
April 23-29 National- Crime Vic-
tims' Rights Week.
During the week, crime vic-
tims and survivors, as well as
those who serve them, will join
together across America to pro-
mote victims' rights and serv-
ices, and to educate communities
about the devastating impact of
crime on victims, neighborhoods,
schools, and the nation as a
whole.
The theme of 2006 National
Crime Victims' Rights Week,
"Victims' Rights: Strength in
Unity," pays tribute to crime vic-
tims and survivors who, for
many decades, have joined to-
gether in mutual support and
advocacy to promote. victims'
rights and services. It also recog-
nizes the ongoing efforts of
countless victim service provid-
ers, justice professionals, and al-
lied professionals and volunteers
who selflessly dedicate their
lives to helping victims of crime.
Many programs are available
to provide victims with crisis in-
tervention, counseling, support,
safety planning, and advocacy
throughout criminal and juvenile
justice processes, and the state's




Obituary


victim compensation program
helps victims recover from the
many costs associated with
criminal victimization.
"The victims services field has
gained strength by having a uni-
fied vision, a unified voice, and
unified policies and practices to
promote justice and healing for
crime victims," said John W. Gil-
lis, director of the Office for Vic-
tims of Crime within the Office
-of Justice Programs, U.S. De-
partment of Justice. "By putting
victims first, our community rec-
ognizes that crime victims are
integral to criminal, tribal, mili-
tary, and juvenile justice proc-
esses. And by speaking out and
shdring the power of their per-
sonal stories, crime victims help
us recognize the hurt and harm
that victims endure."'
Here in Polk County, MADD
(Mothers Against Drunk Driv-
ers) hosted their 8th annual
event at Lake Hollingsworth on
April 15. Victim advocates from
throughout the county were in
attendance, including members
of the Polk County Sheriffs Of-
fice, Winter Haven Police De-
partment, Bartow Police Depart-
ment, Lakeland Police Depart-
ment, MADD, and Peace River's
Domestic Violence and Rape Re-
covery.
Guest speaker was Glynn
Birch, MADD national presi-


dent.
Birch, of Orlando, is the first
male and first black national
president of the group. His
young son was killed by a
drunken driver traveling more
than 70 miles per hour in a resi-
dential neighborhood. The driver
was a repeat offender with a
blood-alcohol level of .26, and
had never served time in prison.
The Polk County Victim Re-
source Network will be hosting
an event at the Polk County
Courthouse on Friday, April 28.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., members
of the network will offer litera-

Maoatorium Is A. Last Resort


(Continued from Page 1)
"How you fix that is a difficult
problem," Boles replied.
Commissioner-elect James F.
Clements asked if there is a rule
of thumb on how. much open
space should be preserved in a
development.
Boles said that is a policy
question for the city to decide.
"It's not uncommon to see
requirements for 20 or 25 per-
cent," he added.
Commissioner Brian Hinton
asked if it 'is possible to have
"walkable subdivisions" which
are walled.
Boles said that walled subdivi-
sions generally are not "walka-
ble." Destinations such as schools
generally are considered within
walking distance if they are with-
in a quarter-mile, he said.
Hinton asked how the city
could discourage "cookie cutter
neighborhoods."
"That's a difficult one," Boles
said. "It's something that's in the.
eye of the beholder."
The city could limit the num-
ber of homes in a development
with garages that front on
streets, and could require a vari-
ety of housing densities within a
subdivision, he said. '
"We don't want every subdivi-


sion in Bartow to be alike; at
least I don't think we do," Zoning
Board Member Bo Raulerson
said.
Affordable housing, also called
work force housing, "is always a
tough issue," Boles said. "I'm
amazed at the price of housing."
A rural feel can be maintained
by clustering homes in one area
and retaining a large undevel-
oped area in the balance of a
development, he said.
For example, a development
could preserve a rural feel if 20
homes were built on a 100-acre
,tract; But instead of each home
occupying five acres, they could
all be clustered on half-acre
homesites, with 90 acres pre-
served as open space, he said.'
Hinton asked what the city
could do to require that new
* homes served by septic tanks be
required to connect to sewer lines
when they become available.
Boles said the city could
require developers to put in "dry
lines" which would be put into
use when sewer service was
extended to the area.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
asked Boles his opinion of joint
planning areas, in which city and
county governments share plan-
ning responsibilities.
"They're hard to do," Boles'


said.
Asked his opinion of planned
developments versus convention-
al zoning, Boles said PDs are
popular because they offer flexi-
bility. They are particularly
appropriate for larger develop-
ments, he said, typically at least'
five to 10 acres.
Hinton said he is hearing from
constituents who want preserva-
tion of open space and play areas.
Wiegers said the city's compre-
hensive plan calls for 5.5 acres of'
recreation space for every 1,000
residents, while the city actually
has 29 acres per 1,000 residents.
The problem, commissioners
said, is that parents who live on
E.F. Griffin Road are not likely to
take their children all the way
across town to Mary Holland
Park.
As the meeting drew to a close,
Longworth said the two boards
"need to have dialogue among
ourselves.
"Shouldn't we get public input
first?" Raulerson asked. "We
need to hear what they have to
say."
Longworth said that commis-
sioners and board members
should begin discussing specifics
at their next meeting, which has
not yet been scheduled.

that requires proper planning.
She said that infrastructure
should be in place by the time
construction is completed, if not
before construction begins.
Ms. Reed said that she sup-
ported immediate landscape:

"that the plans for deep wells in

be made available.
Parker said'that water is a
regional asset, and that the coun-
ty's'water policy committee's rec-
ommendations have been
ignored.
He also said that the commis-
sion cannot drag its feet on
impact fees for roads.
Senft said that the commis-
sion has implemented a new
database for water resources that
provides information'onn how
those resources are affected by

growth.
The commission has built a
partnership with the water man-
agement district, and the .district
will be more willing to begin new
projects because the county now
has a dependable source of fund-
ing with the new taxes, he said.
The Department of
Transportation will be more will-
ing to approve new road projects
for the same reason, according to
Senft.

Future of PCOC
One 'Tiger wanted to know if
the candidates would support the
elimination of PCOC, and allow-
ing the school board to take over
Head Start and other programs.
Senft said that nothing was
currently planned, but if PCOC
was dismantled, the school board
would take over some programs
and the commission would take
over the rest.,
Reed wanted PCOC to solve
it's problems, 'id continue oper-


eating. She said that the commris-
sion should not take it over.
Santiago agreed, saying that
PCOC should work with the
school board and county commis-
sion as a third, separate entity.
Parker, who had served on
PCOC in the past, said that there
were problems even when he was
there. He said unless PCOC can
solve its problems quickly and
effectively, the programs should
be moved elsewhere.

Two days after the Tiger Bay
meeting, Paul Senft dropped out
of the race for Seat Four of the
county commission.
He said the meeting convinced
him that he might not have "the
stomach for a campaign where
the other side is going to tell peo-
ple what they want to hear -
where voodoo economics and mis-
representations of financial
information will be intentional,
and time will not permit chal-
lenge and/or clarification."

County Commission


Assures Mobile Home


Owners of Support


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Polk Cpunty ,commissioners
assured a large contingent of mo-
bile and ,manufactured home
owners on Wednesday that the3
are concerned with protecting
their interests when mobile
home parks are rezoned for other
types of development.
Mobile home owners filled the
county commission chambers
nearly to capacity to hear a re-
port from the county attorney
and to express their views. They
applauded their own speakers
and commissioners who ex-
pressed interest in their con-
cerns.
At issue is the cost and
sometimes the impossibility of
moving mobile and manufac-
tured homes when the parks in
which they are located are re-
zoned for more expensive prop-
erty.
County Atty. Joseph Jarret
said that Florida law deals with
mobile home park evictions only
as a result of zoning changes.
The law allows owners to
evict residents when there is a
zoning change, but they must
give six months notice, he said.
The law also precludes an
owner from increasing lot rent-
als without giving 90 days no-
tice.
Mobile home owners who are
required to relocate due to zon-
ing changes are entitled to relo-
cation expenses from the state,
Jarret said: the actual cost of
moving within a radius of 50
miles, or $3,000 for single-wide
units or $6,000 for double-wides,
whichever is less.
The provision does not apply
when the park owner moves a
unit at his own expense, or if a
resident already has given notice
of intent to move, even if a land
use change takes place later.
Mobile home owners must
make application to the state, he
said; payment is not automatic.
The law precludes approval of
rezoning of mobile home parks
until local government has deter-
mined that other parks are
S available for displaced owners.
"Some counties just don't have
adequate facilities," Jarret said.
"In that instance, rezoning
would be denied." But the 50-
mile radius includes parks in a
neighboring county.
Pinellas County passed an or-
dinance expanding those rights,
he said.
It requires park owners who
wish to rezone their parks to
show that other- locations are
available for their tenants.
He said the ordinance has not
been tested in court.
'They're bracing themselves
for challenges from the develop-
ment community," Jarret said.
"The county attorney's office has
heard rumblings."
The Pinellas County ordi-
nance requires park owners "to
create a housing profile for every
owner," and to deposit funds to
insure that affordable mobile
home parks are available for
their tenants.
Temporary rental assistance
from park owners is available
when needed through a fund cre-
ated by owners and adminis-
tered by the county, he said.
Rental assistance is available for
a maximum of 24 months.
Mobile home owners must
agree to accept counseling from
the county on relocation options.
Pinellas requires that a new
park be available within a radius
of 10 miles, not the 50 miles re-
quired by state law, he said. The
purpose is to keep displaced mo-
bile home owners in the same
general neighborhood.
"The burden on the applicant
(park owners) is huge," Jarret
said.
Pending legislation in the
Florida Legislature addresses
the problem created for mobile
home owners who are evicted
when their parks are sold for
other development, he said.
Local government community'
redevelopment agencies would
be required to provide relocation
assistance to mobile home own-
ers.
Not every mobile or manufac-
tured home is "a likely candi-
date" for relocation due to age or
condition, he said. The bill would
provide for financial assistance


to purchasing replacement hous-
ing.
The bill presently is in com-
mittee.
Commissioner Randy Wilkin-
son said property values in some


parks are jeopardized by the im-
portation of older, substandard'
homes. Polk County requires in-
spection of older homes, before
they are allowed to move into
the county, he said.
Several members of the audi-
ence, representing various mo-
bile home owners' organizations,
spoke to the commission.
Gary Howell said his group "
would like to see the county take
a proactive approach."
Mobile home dwellers usually
are not able to afford to buy
parks when they are put up for


"pay their bills on time, keep in-
formed, and vote," she said.
Max Darling, representing an
organization which he said has
more than 6,500 members, said
most mobile home dwellers are
retirees, many of whom moved to
Florida in retirement.
"Our parks are cities within
cities. We look after each other.
The people in our parks don't
commit crimes," he said. Many of
them volunteer in local churches,
charities and events.
"The people in retirement
communities are good citizens.

Celebrate The Earth


With A New Tree


Celebrate the wondrous bene-
fits of trees and make a wise in-
vestment by planting a shade
tree in your yard.
But before you plant, take
some advice from the experts to
help your new tree live a long
time.
"Too often, consumers waste
hundreds of dollars on trees that
will die because they were
planted too deep," Peter Gersten-
berger, senior advisor for Safety,'
Standards and Compliance with
the Tree Care Industry Associa-
tion, said.
"Proper planting is absolutely
essential in the failure or success
of a transplanted tree," he said.
Using quality plants and follow-
ing up with good tree care prac-
tices, such as watering, pruning
.and fertilizing, will not save'a
poorly planted tree. The most
common mistake is planting the
root balltoo deep."
Homeowners can purchase
trees packaged in three common
forms:
Bare-Root plants may be
sold with the roots tightly
packed in a moisture-retaining
medium that is wrapped with
paper or plastic with roots
loosely covered by a moist pack-
ing medium. Roots must be ade-,
quately moistened prior to plant-
ing. Roots are spread out evenly
in the hole when planting.
Balled and burlapped B& Bi
trees are moved with a ball of
soil protecting their root system.
Soil balls are heavy, so profes-
sional arborists who have proper
equipmefit should be hired to
plant large trees. Smaller B & B
trees should be carried with a
hand under the root ball.
Carrying a B&B tree by the
stem or branches can result ini
serious root damage. When
planting, set the root ball in the
hole, position the tree, then re-
move twine and nails. Remove or
fold back burlap from the upper
third of the root ball.
Container-Grown trees have,
the advantage of a root system
that is relatively undisturbed at
planting, but beware of "pot-.
bound" container trees.
Do not buy container trees
that have a large amount of
roots completely circling the in-
side of the pot. These trees will
take a long time to get estab-

wished after planting because the
roots have difficulty growing be-
yond the thick ring of circling
roots. Immediately before plant-
ing container trees, prune the
roots.
Root pruning can cut up to 50
percent of the roots in container
trees but this is still sufficient to
permit plant establishment. This
compares with pruning about 10
percent or less of the root system
being transplanted with B & B
trees. Always remove the con-
tainer prior to planting.
Gerstenberger advises 'con-
sumers to follow these planting
guidelines:
Measure the height and di-
ameter of the root ball or root
spread.
Dig the hole one to three
inches shallower than root ball
or root depth. The hole's diame-
ter should be two to three times
the diameter of the root ball or
root spread.
Set the tree on undisturbed
solid ground in the center of the
area. The tree should be planted
so that the root flare, the base of
the trunk where the roots begin
to "flare-out," is visible and
above grade.
Backfill with soil from the
planting hole, using water to
pack or settle the soil around the
root ball.
Mulch the planting area
with 2 to 4 inches of an organic
mulch such as wood chips. Do
not mulch up to or against the
trunk.
:" .Trees should be pruned af-
ter planting to remove broken.
damaged, diseased ,:r dead
branches.
Stake and/or protect the
trunk of the tree if there is a real
potential for wind damage or
lawn mower injury. Remove the
'guy wires when the staking is no
longer needed or the tree could
be injured or even killed from
girdling by the wire.
Prune to develop a good
branch structure once the tree
has become established in its
new home, usually one to three
years after planting. ,Never re-
move more than 25 percent of to-.
tal foliage in one year.
Fertilizing is not recom-'
mended at the time of planting.
A professional arborist can as-
sess your landscape and work
with you to determine the best
trees to plant. Contact the Tree'
Care Industry Association
(TCIA), a 68-year old public and
professional resource on trees
and arboriculture.

La4y Jackets Crush Kathleen, Lake

Wales In District Championship


r.l.., l. ..i~i.; .,' '. P M' .'


By MARK KING

The 2006 Class 4A District 9
Softball Championship tourna-
ment, hosted by the Bartow
High Sch6ol Lady Jackets, was
played last week at One Bug
Place.
The tournament started off
with a barn-burner between the
Haines Oity Hornets and the
Kathleen Red Devils. It was a
marathon of madness Tuesday
night as the game went on for al-
.most two and one-half hours, be-
fore Kathleen pulled out the 12-
11 victory in a game loaded with
errors on both teams.
Then, in game two, played in
the late afternoon on Thursday,
the Lake Wales Highlanders un-
hinged the Bolts of Ridge Com-
munity High School 10-0 in five
innings.
Game three saw the Kathleen
Red Devils match up against the
Lady Yellow Jackets. But even
with a whole crate of matches,
the Devilsl didn't have a prayer,
for it was the Lady Jackets who
were on fire this evening, win-
ning 10-0 in five innings.
Particularly hot was one Lady
Jacket batter: Kara Rutenbar,
who went four-for-four at the
plate with three singles and one
booming double-bagger in the
fourth. She also scored twice and
batted in the final run.
The Jackets offense got rolling
in the second inning and just
couldn't seem to stop. The Bugs
racked three runs in the second
inning, two in the third and four
runs in the fourth. Mercifully for
the Devils, the one run scored in
the fifth inning was the 10th run
and the game immediately at 10-
0.
As she has for most of the sea-
son, Candace Howell started off
in the pitcher's circle for Bartow.
The Bugs' ace ,made out like
Coach Glenn Rutenbar's John
Deere as she mowed down six
Kathleen batters in three in-
nings. Kaly Flood closed out the
pitching duties for 'Tow, throw-
ing'three K's of her own.
: With the semi-final victory,
the Yellow Jackets' record ad-


For the fourth time in five
years, Winter Haven attorney
Brandon Rafool will stage the
Meals on Wheels Offshore Fish-
ing Tournament to raise funds
and catch fresh fish for Winter
Haven-based Meals on Wheels.
This year's installment of Ra-
fool's benefit fishing tournament
will be held on Satuiday, May
20, at the Pirates Cove Resort &
Marina in Stuart. The event is
open to all men, women and chil-
dren with a passion for deep sea
fishing.
"We look forward to making
this the biggest and best tourna-
ment to date. Our goal is to at-
tract at least 25 boats and more
than 100 fishermen," said Ra-
fool, who launched the tourna-
ment in 2002 and has run it
every year since then with the
exception of 2004 when bad
weather forced its cancellation.
The entry fee of $250 per boat
covers the tournament, a pool-
side captain's party/cocktail hour
the night before the tournament
and an awards party immedi-
ately following the tourney.
Every registered team also gets
four official tournament T-shirts
and a boat bag filled with fishing
goodies.
The tournament, scheduled
for 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., will be
followed by the awards function
featuring heavy hors d'oeuvres
and the presentation of auto-
graphed Guy Harvey limited edi-
tion prints to the winners of the
dolphin, wahoo, kingfish and
billfish competitions.
The leading lady angler will
receive a gold dolphin pendant
and the top youth angler will be
presented with a silver sailfish
pendant.
"The goal of this tournament
is to have fun, catch come fish
and raise some money to help
Meals on Wheels continue its
wonderful job of feeding people
who are unable to feed them-
selves," Rafool said. "It is not
about prize money.. just fun in
the Florida sun with family and
friends during a great time of
year to catch some slammer dol-
phin."
Fishermen can bring their


vanced to 25-1 for the year.
On Friday night, it was like
old times as the Lady Jackets
and the Lake Wales Highlanders
found themselves duking it out
for the district championship.
The Bagpipers were the last
team to deny the Bugs a district
title, and they were hoping for a
repeat of that feat Friday.
But Bartow (ranked number
one in the state in Class 4A) was
able to take advantage of some
Bagpiper boo-boos and used ad-
vantageous hitting and creative
base-running to squeeze out a 4-
0 win, bringing their season re-
cord to 26-1.
For four innings, it seemed
like Lake Wales was in control,
as pitcher Rachel Hunt and the,
Highlander defense retired 12
Bug batters in a row. But the
telltale sign during that run was
this stat: there was just one
strikeout for the Bartow batters.
Over the same period, Bartow
struck out four Kilt clubbers.
This Bartow team is iot
afraid to swing the bat and put
the ball in play. It is the team's
belief that if they put the ball in
play, eventually something good
will happen.
And it did. Hunt had been
baffling the Bartow batters all
night with her dropping pitch,
forcing the Bartow hitters to hit
bouncing grounders to the in-
field. But in the fifth inning, one
grounder took a funny hop and
the Highlander third baseman,
Red Simmons, bobbled the ball.
That allowed the batter,
Elizabeth Howell, to reach first
base. A sacrifice by Mallory But-
ler and a fielder's choice off the
bat of Rachael Jackson moved
Howell to third.
With two outs and Bartow
desperately needing a score,
Erin Foley advanced to the plate.
Foley ripped a worm-burner that
caromed off first base and scored
Howell for Bartow's first run.
But the Bugs had some sting
left in them. in the bottom of the
sixth with one out, "Little Light-.
Sning" Whitney'tittle bunter her
way to first, theii'-sed her speed
to steal second base. On the next

Discount room rates are also
available at the Pirate's Cove
Marina.
Since launching the tourna-
ment in 2002, Rafool has raised
more than $7,200 for Meals on
Wheels. Each of the four previ-
ous events also has yielded
enough fish to provide every
Meals on Wheels recipient with
a freshly-cooked fish dinner.

tion form for the 2006 Meals on

pitch she stole third.
Then batter Rachael "Ray-
Ray" Giddens laid down a bunt.
The LW pitcher charged the ball,
picked it up, and looked up to
see Little an inch away from
home plate: It was a squeeze
play, called perfectly by Coach
Rutenbar, and it scored Bartow's
second run.
Giddens advanced to second
on another Highlander faux pas,
then scored when Kara Ruten-
bar cranked a double down the!
third baseline. Rutenbar later
scored on the third error in the
evening by Lake Wales.
"We thought it would be a
good game. They're a much im-
proved team," said Coach Ruten-
bar. "[Lake Wales' pitcher, Ra-
chel Hunt] has this low pitch
and it was effective. But we fi-
nally started hitting it. Kara fi-
nally hit it the way I thought we
should be hitting it."
Once more, Candace Howell
was the pitcher for Bartow.' The
sophomore sensation struck out
seven swingers. She gave up.
three hits and walked none.
"Candace pitched great," ac-
knowledged Coach Rutenbar.
"How about that change-up?"
Bartow fans would agree with
the coach that Howell's change-
up is terrific.
Lake Wales found it devastat-
ing.
:Next up, it's the, Florida High
School Athletic Association's Re-
gional play-offs in the State
Tournament Series. Bartow will
host its first game in the Region-
als when they host Avon Park on
Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m.
If they win that one, the Bugs
will again play at home on Fri-
day.
