McLeod and Commerce Parks

To Be Improved, Not Closed


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

A chorus of upset and impas-
sioned voices convinced City
Manager Joe DeLegge not to close
the McLeod and Commerce Parks
at a public meeting held
Thursday.
Instead, Parks and Recreation
will be accepting suggestions for
improving the parks on next
year's budget.
More than 90 community
members showed up to the meet-
ing, which initially was designed
to find out whether anyone cared
if the parks were closed. Many
stood to explain why they loved
the parks and several where visi-
bly upset about the possibility of
closure.
Locals cited convenience, safe-
ty, and history as reasons to keep
the parks going. Some families
who were there had been going to
the park for several generations.
Others had bought homes as
recently as five months ago
because they were close to the
parks.


Some wanted to know why Nye
Jordan Park was getting
upgrades while there was discus-
sion of closing their local parks.
The work at Nye Jordan is the
result of a grant the money
cannot be used anywhere else,
Parks and Recreation Director
Barbara Newell said. Nye Jordan
was the target of the grant
because it is used more.
However, after seeing the com-
munity support for the parks,
Parks and Recreation wants to
keep them open, and hopes to
hear suggestions for how the
parks can be improved.
Community members had
varying ideas about how to
improve the parks, but there was
some consensus.
Those near Commerce 'Park
said the park definitely needed
some form of shade, but they did
not want the big field disturbed
because it is used to play team
sports.
Residents close to McLeod
were unanimous in their desire to
keep the unique oak trees
throughout their park.


Most were also interested in
new, or at least replaced, play-
ground equipment at both parks.
Recreation Advisory Board
Chairman Mike DeNeve said that
it would be difficult to reach a
decision in the meeting. He rec-
ommended that the families
should send their prioritized sug-
gestions and ideas to the Parks
and Recreation Dept., which
would then decide which
improvements would be tnost
important and most feasible for
the next budget.
This was the second of two
meetings about the potential clos-
ing of neighborhood parks.
The first, held Tuesday, was
about Martin Luther King and
Oaklawn parks. Parks and
Recreation had trouble notifying
the public about the meeting, so it
tabled any decisions until a later
date.
The delay also would allow
Parks and Recreation to deter-
mine the effect the building of a
$100,000 park behind Carver
Recreation Center would have on
the area.

A BIG TURNOUT of concerned citizens mount a
defense of their beloved community parks, McLeod
and Commerce. After hearing their comments. City
Manager Joe DeLegge reassured them that the
parks would not be closed, and the Parks and


Residents of Gordon Heights
are expected to turn out tonight
to protest a proposed 38.8-acre
industrial park next to their
homes between U.S. Highway .17
North and the 91 Mine Road.
The rezoning will be consid-
ered by the Bartow City
Commission tonight at 6:30.
Earlier this month, commission-
ers passed the rezoning ordi-
nance on first reading and did
not allow neighbors to speak.
Some, made it clear that they
might change their minds after
hearing comments at tonight's
mandatory public hearing before
a final vote on the ordinance.
The property is located in a
runway approach zone to Bartow
Municipal Airport, which is locate
ed just to the east of the proposed
industrial park. The zoning
sought is I-2 (heavy industry).
The ordinance would prohibit
several heavy industrial uses:
auto salvage yard, bulk storage
of explosive gases, junkyard,
manufacture of explosives,
slaughterhouse, and commercial
incinerators.
Neighbors have expressed con-
cern over what could be devel-

Because of its location in the
approach zone of the airport, res-
idential development is prohibit-
ed on the site.
The commission will meet this
afternoon at 4:30 for a closed
meeting to discuss a lawsuit filed
against the city by a developer
over a zoning issue on E.F.

Neighbors Seek To Enter Griffin Road Zoning Lawsuit


Thirty-seven residents of E.F.
Griffin Road have filed a petition
to intervene in a suit filed by a
developer who is asking the court
to overturn a zoning decision by
the Bartow City Commission.
The 41-page motion is accom-
panied by 26 exhibits, mostly
affidavits from people who live on
E.F. Griffin Road and who oppose
a zoning request of Highland
Cassidy LLC, a Lakeland devel-
oper who is building hundreds of
homes on that road.
The commission voted to reject
a proposal by the developer to
allow townhouses in what previ-
ously was to be a subdivision of


single-family homes.
The motion, which, with
exhibits, weighs more than two
pounds, was filed on Friday by
Brent Geohagan.
It asks the court to allow the
37 residents to become parties to
the lawsuit.
' The suit says that Highland
Cassidy wants to build 870
homes on 272 acres of land on
E.F. Griffin Road, a road on
which approximately 50 homes
presently are located. The com-
pany already is developing
another 330-unit subdivision
next to the parcel under chal-
lenge.


Geohagan's motion says that
the developer's suit against the
city is based on "premature
actions," "premature agree-
ments," and "non-binding recom-
mendations" by the city's one-
person planning staff.
The motion further asserts
that:
The final decision rests with
the city commission "and was
based on a determination as to
whether or not the proposed sub-
division development was consis-
tent with, and did or did not vio-
late, the City ofBartow's compre-
hensive plan."
Protests against the devel-


opment plans were made by 12
people who live near the proper-
ty, while witnesses called by the
developer do not live in or near
the area.
The neighbors presented
"overwhelming substantial com-
petent evidence" that the devel-
opment violates the comprehen-
sive plan.
The "smart growth" criteria
set forth by the. city's planning
consultant, Gene Boles of the
University of Florida, and cited
by Highland Cassidy are not
binding on the commission.
The testimony of the 12
neighbors "does indeed constitute


substantial competent evidence'
supporting the city commission's
denial of petitioner's (Highland
Cassidy's) proposed development.
If one were to otherwise adopt
petitioner's position, then every
commission's invitation for public
comment and citizen testimony
and participation would be ren-
dered meaningless."
In its suit asking the court to
overturn the city commission's
action; Highland Cassidy called
it a "rogue denial" and said it was
based on the "unreasonable influ-
ence of a few non-expert witness-
es who.live on E.F. Griffin Road."
The developer's suit also


alleged that the commission has
shown a "predisposition to yield
to neighborhood pressure."
It characterized testimony
from opponents as conclusoryy
statements based upon theoreti-
cal suppositions and rural folk-
lore."
The commission has scheduled
a closed meeting with its lawyers
this afternoon to discuss strategy
for responding to Highland
Cassidy's suit.

Lions Told f Lawn Grasses

Currently in Use in Florida


"There is no perfect lawn
grass," Anne Yasalonis, program
coordinator of Florida Lawns
arid Neighborhoods, told Bartow
Lions Club members at their
Aug. 15 noon luncheon meeting.
"There are lots of grasses out
there for use in home lawns, all
of which have some problems
and some good points, Ms. Yasa-
lonis said. "When choosing a
lawn for your home, remember
that this is a long-term invest-
ment, and that you must be real-
istic about what you can afford,
manage, and are looking for in
the first place."
The predominant lawn grass
for many years has been St.
Augustine grass, yet as concerns
over water use have grown, a
more drought-tolerant grass may
be in place before long, she said.
Delmar is a small leaf grass
which does well in shade and
has a good cold tolerance. Flora-
tam continues to be the most
commonly used St. Augustine
grass, yet it shows the least tol-
erance to shade of any St.
Augustine grass.

other structures.
Though watering of lawns is
now restricted by law, less fre-

4 The Polk County Democrat August 21, 2006


Of the four positions that come up for
election on the Polk County school board
this year, two incumbents and one new-
comer escaped opposition, and only one
contest is on the ballot.
School board candidates run without
party labels, and with only two candidates
in the race, the winner will be determined
in the primary election on Sept. 5.
Kay Fields, the incumbent from District
5, is seeking re-election, and is opposed by
Ricky Shirah.
Both have been active in youth and edu-
cational organizations, and both express a
special interest in career /vocational educa-
tion. As important as it is to prepare stu-
dents for higher education, it is important
to understand that the majority of high
school graduates are not headed for a uni-
versity.
There are numerous career fields in
which a sound high school education, per-
haps supplemented by further training in
a vocational or technical school, is more
important than a baccalaureate degree.
Mrs. Fields has one clear advantage
over her challenger: four years experience
on the school board.
She has used that time well to get a firm
grasp of the issues and the best ways to
approach them. She is an authoritative and


Editorial


independent voice on the board. She
showed excellent leadership as its chair-
man.
Of particular importance to her is the
need to close the gap between the educa-
tional achievements of minority students
and white students. She proposes a variety
of approaches, from encouraging parents
to become more involved in their sons' and
daughters' education to encouraging more.
minorities to enroll in advanced placement
courses.
Our recommendation for District 5 'on
the Polk County school board is Kayi
Fields.

hoods, seemed unaffected by
sleeping in cribs painted with
lead-based paint, and endured
the emotional trauma of not
being selected for the Little
League baseball team.
I have the same reaction when-
ever I see the environmental
chaos that results whenever a
small amount of mercury is
foundin a school classroom.
The' most recent incident
reported in the press occurred
when a student took about four
ounces of mercury to a Sarasota
school in a leaking container in
his backpack. A hazmat team was
called in because "there (was)
contamination in administrative
areas, classrooms and.hallways."
However, the Associated Press
reported, "no one showed imme-
diate signs of illness from expo-
sure."
Pilgrim, let me tell you about
mercury in the classroom back in
the late 1950s.
The physics teacher kept a
small jar of it in the classroom,
and we got it opt and played with
it the same way we played with
those cute little bugs called roly-
polys, rolling it around in the
palms of our hands.


Back then, all coins from a
dime up were solid silver, and
mercury would put an instanta-
neous bright shine on them. The
only known down side back then
was that the coins turned dull
after a few hours or a few days.
The most trouble you could
get into was if you dropped the
stuff on the floor, because it
would roll around like it had a
mind of its own, which did noth-
ing to improve the frame of mind
of the physics teacher.
No, I am not proposing that
high school kids go back to play-
ing with mercury in physics
classrooms, that kids ride around
without being secured in their
state-of-the-art car seats,.,or that
we give every other baby its milk
in a dirty Coke bottle.
As a society, we know a lot
more about health hazards than
we did a couple of generations
ago. Perhaps that's one reason
our life expectancy keeps rising
steadily.
I never thought of our genera-
tion as living in the Wild, Wild
West, but compared to today's
safety standards, we lived in per-
.ilous times.
And lived to tell about it.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Report from the Zoo


I have lived in this house a
long time.
When we built it, the road
wasn't paved, just a clay circle in
a new subdivision. The only ani-
mal I saw out here in the country
was a wild cat that would come
by and eat leftover sandwich
crusts that the workers left. That
was 45 years ago and now there
isn't a vacant house out here
where the country used to be.
But there are now plenty of
animals and birds.
I have always fed the birds.
My mother and grandmother fed
them and I do, too. I started out
with one bird feeder and now
have five, including the hum-
mingbird feeder, on the patio. I
also try to keep the bird bath out
back filled up.
I feel like the referee for the
birds, squirrels, chipmunks and
Sparky, the fox terrier. When it
gets daylight, I put his barky col-
lar on him and he starts his day. If

OUR READERS SAY


I don't put that collar on him, he
will bark at anything that moves.
I doubt if the neighbors would
enjoy being awakened by a bark-
ing dog.
The chipmunk is named A.J.
Foit because he has racing stripes
down both sides. I throw him a
handful of peanuts every morn-
ing and he stuffs them in his
cheeks and scurries back to his
hole in the ground. I used to have
a chipmunk who lived out back
in the rose hedge. That was
before I had a dog.
He would come up to the
kitchen door and I would leave it
open a couple of inches. He
would come in and pick the
peanuts right out of my hand and
scurry off with them. He would
even let me scratch his stomach.
It felt like satin.
I feel like I have my own per-
sonal zoo. I go to the pet store
and buy big sacks of bird seed,
dog food and peanuts. We are on


our third dog bed and innumer-
able bird feeders that the squir-
rels seem to think belong to them.
Nutsy, the squirrel, and his
family think they own the place.
They chew through plastic bird
feeders, knock the hummingbird
feeders down, and hang on the
window screen over the kitchen
sink looking hungry. I. throw
them a handful of peanuts ,every
day. I must say, they sure do look
healthy. I don't know how to train
squirrels. I wish I did.
I saw a pair of possums out
back a couple of weeks ago and I
sure hope they haven't decided to
live here. Possums just look
dumb and don't add anything to
the atmosphere. I may be preju-
diced, but I can't help it. I guess I
wouldn't have to buy possum
food, if they did, because they
will eat anything, but the neigh-
bors think I am strange as it is.

Park Lakes Need Attention


BARTOW Monday through
Friday before sun-up, I walk from
my house to the south end of
Mary Holland Park and back:
As I trudge along the all too
familiar paths wondering why I
am out at this time of day, I look
around and see the beauty of this
place. The lake surface can be as
smooth as a mirror and reflect the
double image of a heron skim-
ming just above the surface, the
pallet of colors of the sky reflect-
ed on the lake or the wake of an


alligator cruising on the surface.
But lately the surface of the
lake is broken by a rough texture
that is slowly expanding over the
entire lake. This prompted a dis-
cussion with Self as to what was
happening to the lake.
Since Self did not know any
more than I did about it, we fig-
ured it would be best to check
with someone who might know.
As my walk takes me by the
home of a lakeside resident, I
posed the question to him.


"Hydrilla," was his answer.
I immediately remembered
Lake Wailes and many other bod-
ies of water that were choked and
made worthless several years
ago. If this scourge is not con-
trolled soon, it will take over the
entire lake and require a lot of
money and time to kill it.
I can only hope that someone
from Parks and Recreation is
monitoring this.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
Executive Director Ken Haddad
approved substantial changes to
the agency's permitting guide-
lines to reduce the number of go-
pher tortoises lost through devel-
opment.
Effective Aug. 15, the FWC no
longer requires mandatory test-
ing for upper respiratory tract
disease (URTD) when relocating
gopher tortoises off development
sites.
"FWC staff and stakeholders.
agree we will improve conserva-
tion benefits for gopher tortoises
by removing the current URTD
testingpractices associated with
tortoise relocation," Haddad
said. "Our goal is to encourage
people to relocate gopher tor-
toises, and reduce the number of
tortoises lost on incidental take
sites."
Previously, anyone wishing
to build on property occupied by
gopher tortoises was required to
test them for URTD before relo-
cating them off-site,

A positive test of even one go-
pher tortoise left only two alter-
natives: on-site relocation or in-
cidental take permitting. FWC
scientists said the testing re-
quirement hampered relocation
efforts that are important to spe-
cies recovery.
In May, the FWC eased relo-
cation requirements by extend-
ing the distance tortoises could
be relocated from 50 to 100 miles
north or south of a development
site. The move gave homeown-
ers, developers and consultants
more options to save gopher tor-
toises threatened by develop-
ment.
FWC scientists are creating a
statewide management plan for
gopher tortoises to include a new
permitting program. If FWC
Commissioners approve it in
June 2007, the gopher tortoise
will move from a "species of spe-
cial concern" to "threatened" on
the state's imperiled species list.

Herbal Medications May Be

Dangerous When Mixed With Meds.


August 21, 2006


The Polk County Democrat


Older women who regularly
mix prescription, over-the-
counter and herbal medications
are risking their health, Univer-'
sity of Florida nursing research-
ers warn.
Many also don't think to tell
their health-care providers about
the nonprescription medicines
they are taking and too often
practitioners fail to ask.
That lack of communication is
especially alarming, the re-
searchers write in the current is-
sue of Geriatric Nursing.
Many of these older women do
not consider over-the-counter
and herbal medications real
drugs and therefore don't report
them, said Dr. Saunjoo Yoon, an
assistant professor at UF's Col-
lege of Nursing and the study's
principal investigator.
However; it is clear that many
health-care providers are not-fol-
lowing through to learn their pa-
tients complete medication his-
tory.
Recent research has shown
that nearly half of people aged
65 years or older take five or
more prescribed, over-the-
counter and herbal medications,
and 12 percent take at least 10
medications.
Yet little research has focused
on drug-drug interactions among
these three types of medications
in elderly people, who are more
susceptible to their harmful, ef-
fects.
Using a Web-based pharma-
ceutical program, Yoon and co-
investigator Dr. Susan Schaffer,
a clinical assistant professor,
studied 58 older women who had
reported taking .at least one
herbal product while using at
least one over-the-counter or pre-
scribed drug.
The study's participants were
a subsample of 143 women from
previous published studies. Sev-
enty-four percent of the study' s
participants were in danger of
experiencing adverse effects
from a moderate- or high-risk
drug interaction.
Common over-the-counter
pain relievers like ibuprofen or
calcium supplements, when
taken in combination with cer-


tain prescription medications,
were among the most common
culprits.
The women were recruited by
verbal announcements at meet-
ings, personal contacts and post-
ers displayed at meal sites, hous-
ing developments, community
senior organizations, health fairs
and churches in North Central
Florida.
The researchers used Gold
Standard Multimedias Clinical
Pharmacology Drug Interactions
program, which defines a drug
interaction as an altered drug ef-
fect occurring when one drug is
taken with another drug or herb.
An interaction is considered high
risk if it has the potential for
harm in most cases. A moderate
risk requires careful monitoring
and possible dose adjustment.
Of the 136 drug interactions
detected, 41 percent were
deemed high risk and 58 percent
were moderate risk..
The greatest number of high-
risk interactions occurred among
participants who took two or
more nonsteroidal anti-inflam-
matory, drugs to, treat muscle
pain and arthritis, or who com-
bined the NSAIDS with the,
herbal drug ginkgo. NSAIDS are
offered by prescription or in
over-the-counter formulations,
such as ibuprofen.
It is commonly known, that
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory
drugs can cause gastrointestinal
bleeding, and many women are
combining these drugs, which in-
creases that risk significantly,
said Schaffer.
Even just combining an
herbal like ginkgo with ibupro-
fen also increases the risk of GI
bleeding. Older adults are at a
higher risk for GI bleeding even
when the drugs are taken appro-
priately. There is a lack of un-
derstanding about these drugs
and their effects when mixed to-
gether, especially when so many
,of them are offered over the
counter.
Mixing standard doses of
acetaminophen with a narcotic
pain medication that also con-
tains acetaminophen in combina-
tion with propoxyphene can


damage the liver. Some drug
combinations, meanwhile, dilute
the effects of prescription medi-
cations. UF researchers found
that calcium supplements, rou-
tinely recommended to older
women for prevention and treat-
ment of osteoporosis, interacted
with many drugs; causing them
to lose their effectiveness. That
proved true for study partici-
pants taking calcium in conjunc-
tion with high blood pressure or
thyroid medications, or antacids.
The herbal medication St.
Johns wort reduces the effective-
ness of hormone replacement
therapy and contraceptive medi-
cation as well as albuterol, an
asthma medication, and fen-
tanyl, a narcotic pain medica-
tion.
Carefully timing when these
drugs are taken can prevent
these effects. For instance, pa-
tients should take calcium at
least one to two hours before
taking high blood pressure medi-
cation, Schaffer said.
It's so important for health-
care providers to take a careful
medication history to evaluate
all prescribed, ov'er-the-c'unter
and herbal drugs to monitor in-
teractions in older women, par-
ticularly because these women
have been shown to take a num-
'ber of different types of medica-
tions, Yoon said..Although it is
difficult to determine the impact
of the drug interactions, for any
given individual, prevention of
possible interaction is the safest
practice.
Health-care providers and
their patients should making a
point of discussing this issue,
said David Kaufman, a professor
of epidemiology at the Boston
University School of Public
Health and associate director of
the -Slone Epidemiology Center
at BU.
This issue is clearly a concern
as the overlap of herbal, over-
the-counter and prescription
drug use continues to grow
among our.senior citizens, Kauf-
man said. The results of this re-
search study help to send a valu-
able message to health-care pro-
viders on taking time to ask the
right questions about their pa-
tients medication use.

Plant Trees And Save On Energy Bills


If you have ever escaped from
blazing hot sun in a shady spot
under a tree, .you know how
these natural air conditioners
can make you feel more comfort-
able.
A mature shade tree can block
up to 90 percent of solar radia-
tion, which could translate to a
significant reduction in your
home cooling cost.
A Pennsylvania study found
that air conditioning needs could
be reduced by up to 75, percent
by shading a house with trees.
Computer models devised by
the U.S. Department of Energy
predict that the proper place-
ment of as few as three shade
trees will save an average house-
hold $100 $250 in energy costs
each year and that study was
done before energy costs soared.
Solar heat absorbed through
windows and roofs increase air
conditioner use.
Incorporating shading con-
cepts into, your landscape design
can help reduce this solar heat
gain, reducing your cooling costs.

With the increased costs of us-
ing fossil fuels for heating and
cooling our buildings, it only
makes good sense to take advan-
tage of these principles.
"Plant deciduous trees on the
south and west sides of a build-
ing," Peter Gerstenberger, senior
advisor for safety, standards and
compliance with the Tree Care
Industry Association, said. "
Those are the sides where the
sun's rays are most intense.
"Since deciduous trees lose
their leaves in winter they offer
shade during summer but per-
mit the winter sun to provide
warmth," he said. "Where there
isn't room for trees, shrubs and
vines can provide similar bene-
fits."
Deciduous trees with high,
spreading, crowns can be planted
to the south of your home to pro-
vide maximum summertime roof
shading.
Trees with crowns lower to
the ground are more appropriate
to, the west, where shade is
needed from lower afternoon sun
angles.
Trees should not be planted
on the southern sides of homes
in cold climates because the
branches.of these trees will block
some winter sun.
Although a slow-growing tree
may require many years of
growth before it shades your
roof, it will generally live longer
than a fast-growing tree.


Also, because slow-growing
trees often have deeper roots, and
stronger branches; they are less
prone to fail during windstorms
or heavy snowstorms. Slow-
growing trees can also be more
drought resistant than fast-
growing trees.
Trees, shrubs, and ground-
cover plants can also shade the
ground and pavement around
the home. This reduces heat ra-
diation and cools the air before it
reaches your home's walls and
windows.
Use a large bush or row of
shrubs to shade a patio or drive-
way. Plant a hedge to shade a
sidewalk. Build a trellis for
climbing vines to shade a patio
area.
Shrubs planted close to the
house will fill in rapidly and be-
gin shading walls and windows
within a few years. However,
avoid allowing dense foliage to
grow immediately next to a
home where wetness or contin-
ual humidity are problems.
Well-landscaped homes in wet
areas allow winds to flow around
the home, keeping the home and
its surrounding soil reasonably
dry.
Beyond energy savings and
beauty, homeowners who take
care of their trees and keep
manicured yards. find the value
of their properties increase.
A research study at Clemson
University lists maintaining
beautiful landscaping as a cost-
efficient way to increase the
value of a home.
In a comparison of house
prices to house characteristics,
location and landscape, quality,
the study showed houses which
obtained an "excellent" landscap-


ing rating from a local landscap-
ing professional could expect to
sell at a price six to seven per-
cent higher than equivalent
houses with a "good" landscaping
rating.
Improving landscaping from "
average" to "good" resulted in a
home premium about five per-
cent.
A professional arborist can as-
sess your landscape and work
with you to determine the best
trees to plant.

try Association (TCIA), a 68-year

ning backs. Carl Edler led the
team with 57 yards on only 9
carries. Phillip Jackson gained
49 yards, and part-time fullback

over.

said Bartow Head Coach Shawn
Killets, "but we also saw some
areas we need to work on."
