Most Incumbents Safe


As Qualifying Concludes


Most incumbent officeholders
in Polk County won re-election
without opposition when the
qualifying period for office
expired on Friday, while newly-
created or vacant judgeships
proved a powerful magnets to
lawyers.
Among incumbents in county
and- legislative office, only
County Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson and School Board
Member Kay Fields drew oppo-
nents.
In Congressional races, for
which qualifying ended earlier in
the year, Congressman Adam
Putnam, whose District 12
includes most of Polk County as
well as parts of Hillsborough,
drew two opponents who are run-
ning without party affiliation;
Congressman Dave Weldon,
whose District 15 includes a
small part of Polk County, drew
two-Democratic opponents; and
Congresswoman Virginia
"Ginny" Brown-Waite, whose
District 5 also includes a small
part of Polk County, has three
Democratic opponents.
In what are shaping up as the
races to watch, one incumbent
county commissioner, two former
commissioners, and three past
candidates are among those
seeking two county commission
seats.
In District 2, County
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson.
who represents District 2, a
Republican, faces a primary elec-
tion challenge by Betty Hill.
Seekingthe Democratic nomina-
tion from District 2 are Robert


Connors, a past county commis-
sioner, and Russell "Rusty"
Boedicker, who has run for the
commission in the past.
In District 4, Bruce Parker is
seeking election to the seat
presently held by Commissioner
Paul Senft. Senft dropped out of
the race after an acrimonious
confrontation with Parker at a
meeting of the Tiger Bay Club of
Polk County. Opposing Parker
for the Republican nomination is
Martha Santiago, a past candi-
date for the office. The
Republican nominee will face
Jean Reed, Democrat, also a past
candidate for.the commission.

City Tax Millage To Stay


At $4.50 Per $1,000


Bartow city commissioner's
plan to keep the city's ad valorem
property tax rate at the present
level of $4.50 per $1I,0I00 of tax-
ableproperty value, and will sub-
mit that figure to a public hear-
ing on Sept. 5 at 6:30 p.m.
'That millage will be certified
to the tax collector as the tax to
be listed on the TRIM (Truth in
Millage) notices to be sent to city
taxpayers.
After a four-and-a-half-hour
budget work session on Monday,
\. nn]I l- .i>l..i'-l -Ippi>'' .e'1 the pro-
posed city budget e-s,-.ntiall as
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge sub-
mitted it.
The budget calls for maintain-
ing the property tax rate at 4.50
Skills, which equates to $4.50 per
$1,000 in taxable value.
Homesteads homes which are
lived in by their owners are
subject to $25,000 homestead
exemption, so a home on the tax
roll at $100,000 would be taxed
at $75,000, or $337.50 per year;
Business property, rental
homes, and other property not
classified as homesteads is taxed
on its full tax roll value, or $450
for a $100,000 piece of property.


Profit from the sale of electric-
ity not the city's ad valorem
village is the primary source
of funds for the city budget.
In his budget message to the
commission, DeLegge said the
city still struggles to make ends
meet, even though the financial
picture has improved in the past
year. The increase in employee
.salaries is budgeted at $550,000,
for a total personnel budget of
$18.1 million.
Inflationary pressures, espe-
cially the cost of fuel and con-
struction materials, add to the
city's "struggle to, maintain the
level of service to which our citi-
zens have become accustomed,"
he said.
Annexations and growth,
along with favorable weather
conditions, have increased the
city's utilities revenues, DeLegge
said.
The budget includes $6.6 mil-
lion for capital improvements.
Among them:
$1,026,903 to complete the
Main Street redesign project.
$980,000 for improvements
to the Old Eagle Lake Road.
$525,000 for landscaping of
State Road 60.


$350,000 for the design of a
proposed city government build-
ing complex.
' $347.000 for a girls softball'
complex at the County Road 555
Park.
$109,656 for the Carver
Recreation Center playground.
$100,000 to rebuild the
Bartow Civic Center parking lot.
$100,000 to resurface the
swimming pool deck at the civic
center.
$862,442 for five garbage
and trash trucks.
$236,500 for five new police
cars.
$862,442 for upgrades and
extensions of the electric system.
$130,00( forr a water system
10-year master plan.
$615,285 to rebuild the mas-
ter lift station at the sewage
treatment plant.
$150,000 to correct
stormwater flooding, on Park
Avenue.
At Monday's commission
meeting, Gerald Cochran told the
commission that the budget has
too little for infrastructure pri-
marily roads and the water and
sewer systems and too much.
for beautification and police cars.


RECOGNIZED FOR SERVICE to the community were Wayne-
Harrison (left), who was awarded the Bartow Rotary Club's Medal of
Honor for service outside of his vocation, and Al Haggins, who
received the club's Medal of Merit for service within his vocation. -

Rotary Awards Honor

Harrison, Haggins


Wayne Harrison and James A.
"Al" Haggins were recognized by
the Bartow Rotary Club on
Wednesday for "sustained ser-
vice" to the community.
Haggins received the club's
Medal of Merit for service within
his vocation. He bought Whit's
Building Supply in 1978, three
years after the company was
established.
"He has a kind and compas-
sionate heart," Harrison told the
club. (When he presented the
Medal of Merit to Haggins,
Harrison was unaware that in a
few minutes he would receive the
Medal of Honor.)
Haggins gives away building
supplies for worthy causes and
sells to civic clubs at cost,
Harrison said. He sometimes
even loans out tools to customers
to use on their projects.
"He gives credit to the unfor-
tunate" who probably could not
get credit from other merchants,
Harrison said.
After the hurricanes of 2004,
when some vendors were price
gouging on relief supplies and
generators, Haggins sold them at
a 10 percent discount, he said.
Damon Lawrence then
announced that Harrison was
winner of the club's other award.
Harrison, a member of the
club, received the Medal of Honor
for service outside of his vocation.
He helped charter American
Pioneer Title Insurance Co., and


later opened his own title insur-
ance business. He also remodels
old houses.
He is a past president of the
Rotary Club and a director of the
Chamber of Commerce.
He is the perennial chairman
of Rotary's wild game dinner, the
club's chief fund-raising project.
In the years in which he has been
in charge of it, annual revenues
have gone from $5,000 to $25,000
Lawrence said.
Harrison has been chairman
for several years of the barbecue
cook-off conducted in conjunction
with the Relay for Life.
Every Sunday, he prepares'
dinner for about 75 members of
the Associate Reformed
Presbyterian Church for a
Sunday night Bible study, and he
operates the church's sound and
video system.
"The ARP church couldn't
function without him," Lawrence
said.
"He's always one of the first to
volunteer when help is needed."
The history of the awards was
traced briefly by S. L. Frisbie, IV.
They were established in 1973 to
recognize sustained service to the
community. The first two awards
were presented to James E.
Stephens, principal of Union
Academy, for his service to public
education, and Owen L.
DeLoach, chief of the volunteer
fire department.

Department last week. (Photo from BPD)

David Wyant Is New

BPD Detective Sergeant


David A. "Pudge" Wyant was
promoted to detective sergeant
for Bartow Police Department in
a ceremony held July 17.
Wyant began as a reserve offi-
cer on Nov. 10, 1993, and was
hired as a part-time police officer
on Jan. 17, 1994. Soon he was a
full-time patrol officer and spent
time as a bicycle officer, narcotics
detective and detective.
For the past 28 months he has
been in charge of the detective
bureau. He has received numer-


ous commendations and letters of
appreciation. In 1997 he was
named Officer of the Year.
Attending the ceremony at the
police station were his wife,
Dawn; his parents, Wayne and
Ann Wyant; his sister, Diane
Pannebaker; his brother, John
Wyant; and his nephew, Ryan
Pannebaker. The new sergeant
has a son, Caleb, 17, and two
daughters, Emily, lH1, and
Madison, 10.


Polk Surplus Land:


Not a 'Pot of Gold'


Polk County owns thousands of
parcels of undeveloped property
- county officials don't even
know how many thousands but
it's hardly a gold mine.
Even so, at least one commis-
sioner wants to try.to mine the
holdings for a little pocket
change.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson suggested to his col-
leagues that the county be more
aggressive in seeking to sell some
of its holdings, most of which
came into the county's ownership
when the owners quit paying
property taxes.
County Mgr. Mike Herr said
that the county has sold about
$1.5 million worth of property
over the past three years.
Commissioner Paul Senft said
he would like to see a list of
parcels that the county owns.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said he once had the same objec'-
tive, but discovered that the coun-
ty holds title to thousands of
parcels, most of which are not
marketable.
"It would take a huge number
of hours" for the staff to compile a
complete list, he said.
Herr said he didn't know if the
present county staff has time to
compile a list, or if it would make
more sense to outsource the task.
"It's not surplus property until
you deem it as such," County Atty.
Joe Jarret said.
From time to time, members of
the Florida Assn. of Counties-will
discuss how much property they
own.
"It's not a pot of gold," he said.
"Most of it can't he used."
Wilkinson said he didn't think


the county got enough money for
two adjacent pieces of property
near Haines City that it sold.
Wade Allen, the county's chief
right-of-way agent, said the two
parcels were listed for 10 years
and got little show of interest
before two purchasers finally
bought them.
"A couple of. years ago, you
couldn't give away property at
Indian Lake Estates," Wilkinson
said. "Now it's selling for $10,000
per parcel."
He suggested that the county
could offer some sites to home-
owners associations for "tot lots,"
neighborhood parks, or the sites
for community centers.
Wilkinson also said that prop-
erty sales should not be placed on
the commission's consent agenda,
a list of items that are considered
routine and non-controversial and
are approved without discussion.
Commissioners instructed
Herr to place all property sales on
the regular agenda, with enough
information that commissioners
can determine if the price seems
reasonable.
Senft noted that the
Legislature requires that counties
look into the possibility of using
surplus property as sites for
"affordable housing."
Wilkinson said that some of the
better parcels of property should
be listed with real estate agents
or sold at auction.
"Do you want a more proactive
approach to dispose of surplus
properties?" Herr asked the com-
mission.
"No, we want you to put it on
the regular agenda," Myers
replied.

Greyhound Pets of America-
Tampa Bay is a volunteer or-
ganization promoting the adop-
tion of retired racing greyhounds
from Derby Lane.
They work closely with Derby
Lane to take retired greyhounds
from the track environment arid
prepare them for life in a "for-
ever Home."
Their pets are spayed .or neu-
tered and.medically cared for.by
local veterinary services. They
are tested for interactions with
children and other domestic
pets.
They prepare the pet grey-
hound for a loving home life by
using a Foster Home program,
which helps the greyhound learn
about living in a home.
Their goal is to match the pet
to the right family so that every-
one can be happy. Volunteers
have all found the love of a grey-
hound and work to spread that
love to others.
Greyhound .Pets, of America
says that the greyhound is a


great potential pet for these rea-
sons: minimal shedding and pet
dander problems, no "doggy"
odor, they are not "barkers,"
they learn quickly, are very ea-
ger to please, don't require a
great deal of exercise (they are
retired after all), are crate
trained and housebroken, and
'will take all of the affection you
can offer.
For those interested in meet-
ing some of the adoptable grey-
hounds, volunteers conduct
"meet and greets" at these loca-
tions: PetsMart locations in Ty-
rone Square in St. Pete and the
Clearwater Mall; Citrus Plaza
Drive in Trinity; Ann's Pets in
Spring Hill; Pet City in Brooks-
ville; and Pet Supermarket in
Spring Hill.

times and locations for the "meet
and greets," to find more infor-
mation about these pets, or to fill

plication, visit www.greyhound-

7ilh Anniversaory Nuggets

The Polk County Democrat

Sast week's 75th anniversary nugget talked about our
first and third "extras," the first published when
members of the notorious "Ski Mask Gang" were
arrested at their homes near Bartow, the third when the fed-
eral court redrew Polk County school attefidance lines.just
a couple of days before the start of school. The most excit-
ing of our "extra" editions was published when a grand jury
issued a scathing criticism of Sheriff Dan Daniels. The pre-
sentment (Daniels was not charged with any crime) came
out one day, but was not to be released to the public the
next day. We decided that we would publish an extra the
following day if we could get two of three stories: (1) a copy
of the presentment, (2) a decision on whether Daniels
would resign or be removed from office by the governor,
and (3) the name of, the successor whom the governor
would appoint. Sure enough, the next morning, the pre-
sentment was released to the public (we published it in its
entirety), Daniels submitted his resignation to the:governor,
and the governor appointed Lawrence W. Crow, then
Lakeland's police chief, to be sheriff. We had our "extra" on
the street as Crow was being administered the oath of office
that afternoon'- S.L Fnsbie, IV

Do Three Envelopes Hold


Secret To FEMA Success?


Government organizations, large and
small, have a penchant for reorganizing.
Perhaps it is the transient nature of
bureaucracy that fuels this phenomenon.
SBusinesses tend to keep the same manage-
ment in place indefinitely; political agen-
cies take on a whole new complexion with
each change in administration.
Arguably the most dysfunctional major
agency in the federal government is the
Federal Emergency Management Agency,
better known as FEMA.
While FEMA has taken a bum rap for
not being in place instantly to do what
cities and states should be doing for them-
selves in the hours after disaster strikes,
the agency's bean counters seem to focus
on the wrong beans.
Millions of dollars in "relief money"
were paid to areas that were not touched
by Florida's 2004 hurricane, onslaught,
while local government agencies found
themselves unable to get reimbursement
for intelligent decisions made in good
faith.
A reorganization plain that is working its
way through Congress would make it an
independent agency within the Dept. of
Homeland Security. The agency head
would report to the Secretary.of DHS, but
also would have direct access to the
President in time of emergency.
The agency administrator also would
have direct access to Congress.
And to impress the American people
with its supposed ability to respond to
future crises, the agency would get a new
name, the U.S. Emergency Management
Authority, which, within the first 30 min-
utes of its existence, would becomeaioewv
as the USEMA.
The reorganization probably makes
sense, but it is the competence of its lead-
ership, not the wiring diagram of who
reports to whom, that determines the suc-
cess of an organization.
We are reminded of the story of a new
CEO brought in to get a troubled organi-


zation back on track. He met with the out-
going CEO and asked for advice.
The outgoing CEO handed his successor
three envelopes, and told him to open one
envelope at the onsetof each crisis.
Two weeks into his regime, the new
CEO faced a crisis, and opened the first
envelope.
In it was a small piece of paper that said
"Blame your predecessor." He did so with
a vengeance, and his board of directors
was satisfied.'
A month later, things still were not going-
well, and he opened the second envelope.
"Reorganize," counseled the one-word
message,
.,He did so, creating impressive charts
with circles and arrows and boxes and dot-
ted lines. Again the directors were:
impressed.
But three months into the reorganiza-
tion, chaos had been supplemented by
confusion, and the CEO opened the third
envelope.
The message was as simple as the earlier
monies:
"Prepare three envelopes."
FEMA's previous incompetent adminis-
trator is gone.
The agency is being reorganized.
The next step is to establish a culture of
competence.
Either that; or prepare three envelopes.

OUR READERS SAY

Next Step: Find the Money


BARTOW I want to thank'
the city's parks and recreation
director for talking with me. in
response to my July 17th letter to
the editor ("Small Parks Need
Attention") about the condition
of some of Bartow's smaller
neighborhood parks. They know
there are problems that need to
be corrected, and while it is the
parks and rec's job to maintain all
of the city's parks as well as the
cemetery and public areas, they
can only work with the funding.
and manpower they have.
So I now go to who controls
the town's purse strings, and ask
that our city manager and com-
missioners visit the five parks
mentioned in my first letter -
Richland Manor, McLeod, and
the three East Bartow pocket
parks, and see the unsafe and
unacceptable conditions for
themselves. Certainly money can
be found for, at a minimum,
repairing and repainting the
existing equipment, and provid-
ing proper fencing. Shelter, light-
ing and new items can come later.


Perhaps the Community
Redevelopment Agency can
devote some of its attention to the
problem since a neighborhood is
one of the cornerstones of a
strong community. Its parks need
to be a place where citizens of
that community can gather to
socialize and enjoy themselves
safely.
Grant money was received for
Summerlin Park. Why can't
either some of that money be
used, or apply for another grant
to be used for these smaller
parks?
SThe community organizations
who volunteer time for other pro-
jects could devote their efforts
and time to the cause Boy or
Girl Scouts, Lions, Rotary,
Kiwanas, or Garden Club. How
about some of the school groups
like Leo and Key Clubs or local
church youth groups?
Maybe large business or law
firms could donate materials,
supplies or cash. As with
Summerlin Park, some kind of
plaque (recognizing their gifts)


could be placed.
While it's nice that we have the
Civic Center, Carver Rec, Mary
Holland and Nye Jordan for
everyone to use, not every citizen
has the opportunity to enjoy
these parks and their amenities.
Not every child has access to
proper transportation, andI can't
imagine the city expecting them
to walk, bike or skateboard from
their neighborhood to play tennis
or basketball op a decent court or
on well maintained playground
equipment.
Even small towns have adults
who prey on children; why give
them more of an opportunity?
But it's not just the responsibil-
ity of the City of Bartow, but also
the people who live in those
neighborhoods to see that things
improve. Contact city hall, the
city manager and city commis-
sioners and voice your concern.
Think of what an impression it
would make if all of Bartow's
parks were as nice as Nye Jordan.

ERIC WOODARD


OUR READERS SAY

Don't Rent To Dancers


BARTOW After several
months of Main Street detours
because of a dilapidated old
building, self and I thought sure-
ly there would be resolution by
now.
I sez to self, "It seems the
threat of two lawyers threatening
to sue the city for damaging a 98-
year-old building they own is
trumping common sense and
safety. I wonder if Messers.
O'Toole and McKinley would
move their offices into the 'bay'


next to the side of the building
that is falling down?"
Self sez, "They ain't that
dumb. All they have to do is
claim it was safe and the city
caused the problem ... and do
what lawyers do, sue."
So I sez to self, "If the founda-
tion of this relic is so undersized
and weak that the removal of the
sidewalk caused the front of the
building to crack, then the safety
of the entire building is suspect. It
appears from the argument by


the attorneys that the sidewalk
was holding up the building. It is
not the responsibility of the city
to build sidewalks to hold up
buildings.
"Also if the foundation of a
structure will shift and fail
because of the vibration of a jack
hammer or a pavement milling
machine then they want to be
sure not ever to rent space to a
dance studio."

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

A Mind Is a Terrible Thing To Boggle


Ask any veteran of the
armed forces, and he (and
probably she, but definitely he)
can give you two dates without
a moment's hesitation:
The day he got into the ser-
vice, and the day he got out.
We can forget wedding
anniversaries, birthdays, and
which Sunday we're supposed
to be usher at the church, but
those two dates are burned
indelibly into our memories.
I entered the Army on July
26, 1962, seven weeks after
graduating from FSU and earn-
ing my commission, and got
out on July 25, 1964.
It was sort of a matter of
pride with me never to have
been unemployed, so I started
to work at The Democrat the
next day. July 26.
On Wednesday of this week,
the odometer rolls over on the
start of my:43rd year at The
Polk' County Democrat, an
organization which has grown
with the creation of a Fort
Meade edition (now The Fort
Meade Leader) and Polk
County Times and the pur-
chase of The Lake Wales News.
For the first couple of
months after I joined the staff,
we were located in the old Polk
County Record building across
the street from the post office.
A few days after I started, I
heard a member of the staff say,
they were going over to look at
"the new building."
"What new, building?" I
asked.
"The new building that
we're going to move .into in a
few, weeks." ,, ,
"And what building would
that be?"



yv^-


It turns out that nobody had
thought to mention to me that
the company had bought the
old Howell. Buick building, two
blocks east of The Record, and
would be' moving there in
September,
Perhaps the term "new
building" is misleading. The
building was built 'in 1908,
occupied on Aug. 17, 1908, by
"Dial and Read's new livery
stable."
Surprised that I hadn't been
told about the new building,
one of my parents asked if I
was aware that I had been
elected vice-president of the
company after Granddad died
,the previous year. It's amazing
how much stuff you miss out
on when you're in the Army,
1,000 miles from home.
The revelation that I had
been vice-president of Frisbie
Publishing Co., Inc., for several
months and didn't even know
it impressed on me just how
important the job of vice-presi-
dent is.
Having started as managing
editor (okay, I started as a carri-
er boy when I was about 12,
and worked my way up to
managing editor when I was
23), I became publisher when
Dad retired on the newspa-
per's 50th anniversary, Aug. 28,
1981. It was the first of his three
retirements, none of which last-
ed, though he gladly left man-
agement of the company in my
hands.
In my spare time (heh heh) I
spent 30 years in the Florida
National Guard.
.. In my 42 years at this busi-
ness, we have grown into three
community newspapers plus a


niche publication for county
government employees.
We have printed on three
presses, starting with one that
printed eight pages (no color),
3,600 copies per ,hour, and
growing into one that prints 16
pages, with full color on the
front and back and spot color
on two inside. pages, at up to
around 15,000 per hour
(though we seldom run it that
fast).
We have converted from let-
terpress technology (which
prints from a raised surface,
sort of like a rubber stamp) to
offset technology, and are, now
in our third generation of com-
puterized typesetting equip-
ment, which allows us to make
up an entire newspaper page
from a computer keyboard.
We are nearing the end of
our 75th year (The Democrat,
not me; I am 65, which I used to
mistakenly believe to be old),
and are making plans for an
open house on Aug. 31 to cele-
brate our 75th birthday.
In my four-plus decades at
The Democrat, the newspaper
industry has made technologi-
cal changes that would boggle
the minds of my Granddad and
Great-Granddad. They found-
ed the paper, and their minds
did not boggle easily.
When making that observa-
tion, I used to say that they,

probably wouldn't have
approved of all this new-fan-
gled technology. Several years
ago, a friend told me that they
probably would have.
He was probably right.
Boggled or otherwise, they
would have approved.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Dr. Murphy To the Rescue


Back in the "good old days"
before World War II, Dr. Murphy
probably wouldn't have put up
with all of the rules and regula-
tions we have today if they had
them back then.
In fact, he might not have put
up with them when he lived next
door to us.
He and my father were fast
friends and spent a lot of Sunday
afternoons.listening to the foot-
ball games on the radio and sip-
ping some bourbon.
One Sunday afternoon when
my father was over at the doc-
tor's house listening to the ball
game, he happened to ask if he
had any free time in his appoint-
ment schedule for the next day.
Dr. Murphy said he didn't
think so, but would check on it
when he got to the office. Of
course, if it was an emergency,
he'd take care of it right away.
Daddy said he was beginning
to feel like it was an emergency,
that he had a cyst on his back-


side that was getting really big
and made it difficult to sit down,
and he thought it would have to
be removed.
Dr. Murphy sprang into
action. He told Daddy to come
into the kitchen with him and lie
face down on the table so he
could take a look at it. It must
have been a really impressive
cyst, because Dr. Murphy said,
"You don't have to wait until
tomorrow, we can take care of
that right here."
I don't know where Mrs.
Murphy was, but I'll bet she
wouldn't have appreciated them
using her kitchen table for emer-
gency surgery.
Dr. Murphy shot some novo-
cain into the affected area and
started cutting away. It was a lot
deeper than it looked and he ran
out of novocain. Daddy let out a
yell that could be heard all over
the neighborhood.
Dr. Murphy decided that
Daddy was a sissy and just


couldn't take a little pain. He got
the bourbon bottle, poured a full
glass and gave it to Daddy, who
didn't care whether school kept
or not when he finished it.
They finished listening to the
ball game and Daddy came on
home and sat on a pillow for a
couple of days.
Modern medicine can't com-
pare to the service Dr. Murphy
gave his patients. I don't think
Daddy had any insurance to
cover that surgery on a kitchen
table. If that was today, Dr.
Murphy would probably get
arrested for violating all the rules.
The 'next week he took
Shirley's and my tonsils out.
In the hospital.
Every thing turned, out fine.
We all loved Dr. Murphy, and
there is not a doctor on the scene
today who could hold a candle to
him.
I wonder what Blue Cross and
the medical associations would
have thought about all of this.

CHANGES ARE MADE IN DETER-
MINATIONS OF BASE FLOOD ELE-
VATIONS FOR THE CITY OF LAKE-
LAND AND THE UNINCORPORATED
AREAS OF POLK COUNTY, FLOR-
IDA, UNDER
THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSUR-
ANCE PROGRAM
On December 20, 2000, the Depart-
ment of Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency identified
Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in the
City of Lakeland and in the unincorporated
areas of Polk County, Florida, through the
issuance of a Flood Insurance Rate Map (
FIRM). The Mitigation Division has deter-
mined that modification of the elevations
of the flood having a 1-percent chance of
being equaled or exceeded in any given
year (base flood) for certain locations in
this community is appropriate. The modi-
fied Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) revise
the FIRM for the community.
The changes are being made pursuant
to Section 206 of the Flood Disaster Pro-
tection Act of 1973 (Public Law 93-234)
and are in accordance with the National
Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended
(Title XIII of the Housing and Urban Devel-
opment Act of 1968, Public Law 90-448),
42 U.S.C. 4001-4218, and 44 CFR Part
65.
Hydraulic and hydrologic analysis was
performed to incorporate updated topo-
graphic information and a more detailed
study of storm-water drainage for Lake
Easy and has resulted in establishment of
a BFE for Lake Easy. The table below indi-
cates existing and modified BFEs for se-
lected locations along the affected lengths
of the flooding sources) cited above.
Location: Approximately 3,400 feet
northeast of intersection of Lake Blue
Road and Nest Egg Road
Existing BFE (feet)": None
Modified BFE (feet)': 117
Location: Approximately 1,100 feet
east of intersection of Perry Road and
Nest Egg Road
Existing BFE (feet)*: None
Modified BFE (feet)*: 117
National Geodetic Vertical Datum,
rounded to nearest whole foot
Village of Highland Park
Unincorporated areas of Polk County
Under the above-mentioned Acts of
1968 and 1973, the Mitigation Division
must develop criteria for floodplain man-
agement. To participate in the National
Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the com-
munity must use the modified BFEs to ad-
minister the floodplain management meas-
ures of the NFIP. These modified BFEs will
also be used to calculate the appropriate
S flood insurance premium rates for new
buildings and their contents and for the
second layer of insurance on existing build-
ings and contents.
Upon the second publication of notice
of these changes in this newspaper, any
person has 90 days in which he or she can
request, through the Chief Executive Offi-
cer of the community, that the Mitigation
Division reconsider the determination. Any
request for reconsideration must be based
on knowledge of changed conditions or
new scientific or technical data. All inter-
est parties are on notice that until the 90-
day period elapses, the Mitigation Divi-
sion's determination to modify the BFEs
may itself be changed.
Any person having knowledge or wish-
ing to comment on these changes should
immediately notify:

Emergency Physicians

Give Tips on Water Safety


Being in and around water is
a big part of the summer for
many people, but while you and
your family enjoy yourselves, the
American College of Emergency
Physicians (ACEP) has some ad-
'ice on how to limit the possibil-
ity of summer water fun turning
deadly.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC(, 782 children younger un-
der the age of 15 died from
drowning in 2003, making it the
second-leading cause of injury-
related death for this age group.
"I can't urge parents often
enough to keep a close eye on
their children when they're
around a pool or at the beach or
lake," said ACEP President Dr.
Frederick Blum. "It takes just a
few seconds for a child to get in
trouble in the water and put
their life at risk."
Government statistics show
that most infants drown in bath-
tubs. toilets or buckets, while
children 1 to 4 years of age typi-
cally drow-n in residential swim-
ming pools. As children get
older, according to the CDC,
drowning occur more frequently
in lakes and rivers and open ar-
eas of water.
"Perhaps the best advice i can
give parents is to know the lim-
its of their child's ability to swim
and to set firm ground rules for
play around the water, and to
never leave kids unsupervised."
said Dr. Blum. "The numbers
show that for every child who
drowns, more than 10 children
are treated in emergency depart-
ments for nearly drowning. ."
4 To help families safely enjoy
their time around water, ACEP
offers the following tips:
Teach your children to
swim.
* Never swim alone.
Only swim ini places that


are supervised. Never allow chil-
dren to swim without adult su-
pervision.
: Never dive into unfamiliar
water.
There were nearly 13 million
boat registrations in the United
States in 2004, with more than
70 million Americans involved in
recreational boating according to
government statistics. While use
of life jackets has been increas-
ing, the CDC reports that 90 per-
cent of the 676 people who died
in boating accidents in 2004
were not wearing any kind of flo-
tation device.
"I can't say it often enough or
loudly enough: wear a life
jacket." said Dr. Blum. "Just be-
cause you know how to swim
doesn't mean you can go boating
without a life jacket; it should be
the first thing that everyone
does before going out on the wa-
ter."
To prevent ending up in the
emergency department as a re-
sult of your next boating trip.
ACEP recommends the following
safety advice:
Tell someone when you're
going, who is with you and how
long you'll be away.
Before starting your engine,
open hatches, run the blower,
and most importantly, carefully
sniff for gasoline fumes in the
fuel and engine areas.
When changing seats, stay.
low and near the center line of a
small boat. .
Always wear life jackets and
carry first aid equipment.
Monitor the weather care-
fully for signs of a storm.
Never drink alcoholic bever-
ages on a.boat. Being "tipsy" can
result in falling overboard. Your
ability to swim safely or call for
help is greatly reduced as alcohol
slows reactions.

Duck Hunting Approved On,!

Stormwater Treatment Areas


5


The governing board of the"
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District has approved a
resolution that will allow the
duck hunting seasons to con-
tinue at stormwater treatment
areas STA 1 West in central
Palm Beach County, STA 3/4 in
western Palm Beach County,
and STA 5 in Hendry County.
The resolution also increases
the number of hunting permits
available in the massive, 16,554-
acre STA 3/4 north of the Palm
Beach/Broward County line for
the 2006-2007 seasonal hunts.
These areas are also open to
other passive recreational uses
such as bird watching.
The STA managers and land
stewardship division of the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District reviewed the im-
pacts of the waterfowl hunts
held in-the STAs since 2004 and
found no interference with the
STA water cleansing operations.
STAs are large, constructed wet-
lands that contain aquatic plants
that take up phosphorus from
the water before it enters the Ev-
erglades.
Too much phosphorus causes.
undesirable effects such as the
uncontrolled growth of algae and
invasive vegetation, which can
be detrimental to the Everglades
ecosystem. Over the last decade,
36,000 acres of treatment areas
and improved farming practices
combined haye prevented 2,200
tons of phosphorus from entering
the Everglades.
Input from the STA manag-
ers, Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
iFWCI and hunter user groups
supported the idea of the limited
'hunts.
: Duck hunting in the STAs is
managed by the FWC, which is-
sues free permits on a first-come
first-served basis. As in the pre-
, vious four years, restrictions and
procedures will be in place to
