Polk County Democrat. I -
The first issue was published on Aug. 28, 1931. 1 .. 'i "
A special section celebrating this milestone and detailing the his- _;. L -
tory of The Democrat is published as part of today's issue. It is packed .
with congratulatory messages from area businesses. ,
On Thursday, Aug. 31, at 5:15 p.m.. The Democrat will hold a "Fun '.-: tY
Thursda3P reception and open house. In addition to celebrating our -.
75th anniversary, this event will showcase the new landscaped "oasis"

BMA Murals To Depict


Vintage Military Planes


Military pilots who trained at
Bartow Army Airfield later
Bartow Air' Base may get a
sense of deja vu when they visit
the' airport terminal now under
construction at Bartow Municipal
Airport.
Suspended from the ceiling
will be two one-fifth scale models
of P-51 aircraft, the model used
for training pilots at the facility.
And murals painted on three
walls will depict six trainer air-
craft used at Bartow Air Base.
five different models of Mustangs,


and three P-51s as they might
look when deployed for combat.
Raymond Waddey of Ocala,
who specializes in painting
murals of aircraft, outlined his
proposal for the murals to the city
commission, meeting as the air-
port authority.
He will paint the murals for
$6.500, and for another $600, will
provide color renderings of the
three murals for purchase by vis-
itors.
At the urging of Commissioner
Leo Longworth, one' ofthe corn-


AIRPORT MGR. CYNTHIA BARROW was given a plaque
marking 30 years of employment at the airport. The presentation was
made by City Commissioner Pat Huff. (Staff photo)


bat-ready P-51s will be painted
with the distinctive markings of
the planes flown by the
Tuskeegee Airmen, the all-black
fighter unit that flew escort for B-
17 bombers in the latter years of
World War II. The unit never lost
a bomber flying under its protec-
tion.
Waddey said he will submit
renderings of the murals in about
six weeks, and that, painting of
the murals should take two to
two-and-a-half months. The ter-
minal, which will have a restau-
rant and lounge, is scheduled for
completion in December.:
The riiurals, to be painted
above eye level, will be the domi-
nant feature for arriving pilots
and diners:.
Photographs and other arti-
facts from the Army AirfieldAir
Base days will be displayed in a
museum in the new terminal.
The authority also:
SPresented a plaque to
Airport Mgr. Cynthia Barrow
marking 30 years of employment
at the airport. She began working
there while a student at Polk
Community College as secretary,
to B.L. Durrance. Jr., the first air-
port manager hired after the air-
port authority was created in
1967. She succeeded Durrance
after his death.
Noted Mrs. Barrow's report
That construction on the new, ter-
minal is: about on schedule, and
that the roof should go up in three
to four weeks.

Two Parks To Stay Open;

and will monitor the use of two
other parks in response to two
neighborhood meetings held ear-
lier this month to discuss closing
of all four parks, City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge told the, city
commission.
"There was, a lot of emotion"
at a meeting to close the McLeod
and Commerce playgrounds,
DeLegge said.
Instead, the city will look at,
putting in new swing sets and
park benches and planting some
more trees, he said.
Use of two neighborhood
parks in East Bartow will be
monitored to see if youngsters
still play in them after a larger,
better equipped park is built at
Carver Recreation Center,
DiLegge said.
The commission also:
Agreed to consider paying


one-third of the $109,000 cost of
designing a parking garage in

feet from the muzzles of their

Parker, of Capt. Leslie's Com-
pany, Sgt. Boggess and Dur-
rance, with. 12 men, from my
Company, three men from Capt.
Hooker's and one from Capt.
Sparkman's Companies. My men
spoke in high, terms of Lt.
Parker, as a brave and good sol-
diet.
"Some of the articles taken
from the wagons on Simmons

battleground. Capt. Hoo:ker, with
23 men, Lt. Kendrick, with 25
men, Lt. Sparkman, with 14

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

Where Do They Have Their Heads?


When astronomers can divide
along "scientific, linguistic and
historical lines," as The
Washington Post reported, over
stuff like this, it frankly makes me
feel a little better about the matu-
rity shown by the governing
body of my own church, the
General Convention of the
Episcopal Church. If your fol-
lowed that little donnybrook, the
General Convention didn't exact-
ly distinguish itself.
But compared to the
International Astronomical
Union, those guys almost look
like they know what they're talk-
ing about.
Nobody neither on earth
nor on Pluto ever claimed that
Pluto was a big planet. Indeed, it
has always has been recognized
as the smallest planet.
Now Bubba, I hope this
immutable certainty doesn't sur-
pass your comprehension, but if
you have nine things of different
sizes, one is going to be the small-
est. We're not talking billiard
balls, okay? We're talking plan-
ets. They're not all the same size.
So do we create some sort of
astronomical survival of the


fittest protocol and declare that
the smallest is no longer fit to be
a member of the planetary frater-
nity?
This may be the first (and last)
time that I have ever cited the ter-
minally flawed Doctrine of
Political Correctness to make a
point, but dwarfs prefer to be
called "little people," which
seems perfectly reasonable to me.
So the International
Astronomical Union not only has
shown that it doesn't have
enough to do; it has shown that
its collective head has been lost in
space or somewhere when
it uses the term "dwarf" to
bestow an insult.
Who gave the International
Astronomical Union the authori-
ty to bestow and revoke planet-
hood on its own whim, I do not
know. I, for one, was not consult-
ed.
But any organization with the
singular lack of taste to name one
planet "Uranus" lacks credibility,
as far as I'm concerned.
Sort of makes you wonder
where these guys keep their
heads, if you get my drift.


His historical treatise, which -he
began writing about 10 years ago
and revised frequently as more infor-
mation occurred to him, focuses on
the Frisbie family and its four-gener-
ation commitment to the journalistic'
craft. Some of it is pretty personal; in
fact, a few paragraphs were edited
out because they were too personal.
Journalists have a tendency toward
baring their souls in print, and he
often did.
In an era when newspapers large
and small are bought and sold by
chains on a regular basis, there is a

We Welcome Letters...


From Our Readers ..,. "I


This newspaper, like almost all newspa-
pers, welcomes letters to the editor from
our readers.
The key words are "from our readers."
Our letters to the editor are intended to
offer an opportunity for our readers to
share viewpoints with each other, regard-
less of whether or not they agree with our
own editorial positions.
We routinely check the names of out-of-
town writers to see if they are subscribers,
or if we are simply recipients of mass mail-
ings. More often, it is the latter.
The -number of mass-produced letters
increases exponentially during political
campaign season. People with no previous
interest in the contents of our editorial


page --and who likely have never
our newspaper and never will sud,
ly show a great interest 'in becoming
tributors to it.
They are simple enough to spot; s
even come addressed to another new
per.
The exception to this policy is le
from the candidates themselves, par
larly the ones whose opppnrenits we
endorsed. We are :rore than willing
extend to them the forubmwhich our e
rial page offers.
We welcome letters from our reader
from our readers.
Let us hear from you.


Our Recommendations


In the Sept. 5 Election


con- Battling Bruho, the humming-
bird, is back.
ome I had ..been worrying that
rspa- something had happened to him,
or he would have returned by
now. I have had the humming-
tters bird feeder filled with nectar and
ticu- ready for his arrival. Just when I
have was about to give up, I looked
g to, out the window this morning and
dito- there he was.
Not only was he back, but had
brought some friends with him.
''.. There were two pairs of hum-
mingbirds''ad 'three little ones
S',. , -,with him., ,
S. ... .. Ihad hung up a nevw bird feed-
er; the oldonie had crashed onto
the patio and broken into several
plastic pieces. This new one is
just like the old one a big red


plastic strawberry with green
leaves and four yellow flowers
with tiny holes in them just the
size of a beak.
I surely was happy to see
them.
Bruno is a beautiful bird. He is
tiny, compared to other birds, but
he doesn't seem to care.
He is a lovely shade of green
with a lighter shade of yellow on
his breast.
He apparently doesn't realize,
that he is so tiny. He obviously
thinks he is as big as anybody
else.
He had been coming around
for a. long time in the summer
and I guess it was two years
before I realized that he had a
tiny little voice to go with his tiny


little self. I think he is a tenor.
Every now and then I can hear
him humming when eating his
breakfast.
The amazing thing about these
humming birds is that they fly
over the Gulf of Mexico and
spend winters in South America.
They seem to know their way
around.
I don't know who these other,
birds are that came with him this
year. I think they must be his
family. They are a beautiful
bunch, every feather in place and
a joy to watch.
I will enjoy them while I can,
because they will be heading
south when September rolls
around.

LAKELAND Of the four
Republican candidates running
for U.S. senator, Katherine Harris
is by far the most qualified, expe-
rienced and informed. She has
already served us well as a state
senator and as Secretary of State.
Florida can be proud of her
integrity and for her holding to
the letter of the law during the
controversial .2000 presidential
election. Q
SKatherine continues to serve
us well jn the U.S. House of
Representatives. She believes in


less government and less taxes,
and in allowing families to keep
more of what they earn. She is
concerned about skyrocketing
health care costs and supports
reducing prescription drug
charges and having affordable
health insurance.
She is a strong advocate of pro-
tecting our borders and opposes
amnesty for illegal immigrants. It
is true that our country was built
by immigrants, but we .need to
remember that they were legal
immigrants. We have well-estab-'


lished procedures in place for
people to legally enter our coun-
try and become citizens.
Katherine Harris is a true con-
servative Republican who
believes in and fights for our tra-
ditional family values. She is a
Florida native who grew up in
Bartow, and she understands the
needs of our state. Katherine's
experience and knowledge: will
make her an outstanding U.S.
Senator to represent the people
the Florida.

Ready for A Hurricane? Questions & Answers to Help


From The City Of Bartow

Bartow is, offering the follow-
ing information, for utility cus-
tomers:

What Is Bartow doing to.
prepare for this hurricane?
Bartow staff'members meet
regularly to assess the situation
and. update our strategies and
plans.
Bartow has a comprehensive,
detailed plan:for responding to a
hurricane that assigns responsi-
bilities to each Bartow employee.
Of course, repair personnel will
be makingrepairs to the system.
However, many office workers
will be out in the field supporting
those repair crews. They also may
serve as guides to out-of-town
repair crews, using chain saws to
remove debris from Bartow facili-
ties, or serving meals to restora-
tion crews.
When a hurricane threatens
Bartow, we begin notifying those
utilities and companies with
which we have mutual aid agree-
ments and contracts so they will
be ready should we need them.
Bartow has agreerieents and con-
tracts with other electric utilities,
food vending companies, fuel sup-
pliers, tree-cutting services and
other vendors td assist' and sup-
port the restoration effort.

Make sure you have a regu-
lar, corded phone. Cordless
phones will not workwhen the
power is off. Fully, charge cell
phones.

What should people who
rely on electricity for med-
ical equipment be doing?
Those who rely on electricity to
operate necessary medical equip-
ment should make arrangements
now to ensure their safety in the
event of a loss of power.
People with "special needs"
should contact the local
Emergency OperationsCenter,
(EOC) in Bartow 519-7478.


What about damage on my
property?
When the storm has safely
cleared, we encourage you to
assess your own damage, too..
Once Bartow crews have
cleared away any electric lines,
the. homeowner is responsible for
tree removal on the homeowner's
property. Bartow will clear from
the lines only that section of a
tree or limb that prevents a crew
from repairing the Bartow wires.
All ,clean up from a broken or
fallen tree and/or limbs is the
responsibility of the property
owner. Bartow crews will not
remove limbs or trees from wires
that are not Bartow's, which
includes phone and cable TV

tor.


For example, if you think the
power will be out for one day, is
that enough to justify purchasing
a generator that costs several
hundred dollars? If you expect
power will be out for weeks, how
will you obtain fuel to keep the
generator running? Transporting
and storing large volumes of fuel
can be dangerous.
If you do purchase a generator,
use it outside your home in a well-
ventilated area.
Fumes from a running genera-
tor can be deadly. Whatever you
do, think about -the purchase and
have a good plan that includes
safety.

Should people who evacu-
ate do anything special to
help minimize damage to
the electric and plumbing
systems in their homes?
If you plan to evacuate, turn off


How do you decide who gets
power first?
Our restoration plan focuses on
returning power to the facilities
that deliver power to the largest
number of affected, customers
first.
First, we repair damage to the
Bartow substations that distrib-
ute power and the lines that con-
nect our substations. Then we
focus on restoring power to the
customers who provide essential
services to your community, such
as hospitals, police, and fire sta-
tions.
Next, we repair damage that
will return power to the greatest
number of customers in the least
amount of time.
Once major repairs have been
made, we begin working to
restore individuals and small
groups of customers. But with the
widespread damage and sheer


the circuit breakers for the water
heater. Also, consider turning off
power to your home at the main
electrical panel, and turning off
water at the home's main service
valve.

During the storm, does
Bartow plan to keep the
power and water on or will
you turn the power, water
and sewer plants off at
some point for safety?
Bartow will not choose to turn
off electric or water service to any
customers. As weather conditions
worsen, it is very.likely that some
customers will lose power.
,As long as safety permits, we
will continue trying to keep power
on for all customers by making
repairs to the system as:needed.
However, once winds exceed 45
mph, it is no longer safe o use
equipment like bucket trucks. At
that i point, Bartow will order
crews to shelter until the brunt of
the storm passes. Crews will
return to work as soon as they can
safely do so.
Bartow's water and sewer
plants have back-up generators to
help keep those services operat-
ing throughout a storm. However,
severe system damage could occur
causing service' disruptions.
Crews will make those repairs as
quickly as possible.


gized power line you can be elec-
trocuted even without actually
touching the wire.

Is food left in refrigerators
safe to eat after the power
has been out?
According to the Red Cross,'
food can stay fresh in the refriger-
ator for up to two days without
electricity, and even longer in the
reezer.
However, they alsorecommend.
sing the food in the refrigerator


volume of affected facilities,, it
takes essentially the same level of
effort to fix the facility that pro-
vides power to thousands as it
does to one that delivers power to
only a few.
So even though we have
restored power'to a very large
percentage of those affected, it
will take more time to get to those
smaller groups of homes or busi-
nesses scattered throughout our
service area. We then begin the
very time-consuming process of
going street by street and house
byhouse to make the final repairs
that will get' everyone's power
back on.

Does Bartow restore power
to one side of town before
another?
No. Bartow'generally restores
power in the sequence that will
result in returning service to the
greatest number of customers as
soon as possible. The only cus-
tomers that receive any special
consideration are hospitals, pub-
lic safety and other life support or
life-sustaining institutions.
STypically, these large cus-
tomers are served by very large
electric lines, which are the first
lines to be repaired anyway.

If people lose power or
water service, what should
they do?
Each situation is unique. Stay
tuned to, your radio for instruc-
tions about whether or when to*
call. If the damage to the electric
system is extensive, there may be
no need for you to call in the first
few 'days. If you have lost water
service, but not power, turn off
the circuit breaker for the water
heater to prevent damtige'!o the,
heating elements from overheat-
ing.

If there is widespread
destruction of the electric
system, how will Bartow
rebuild the system quickly?
In'the case of a major outage, it
will days and may be even weeks
before all power is restored.
However, Bartow has mutual aid
agreements in place with other
electric utilities around the south-
east.
Bartow also has contacts with,
several private companies that
perform utility construction and
tree clearing. These extra crews
would provide assistance to help
restore power as quickly and safe-
ly as possible.
Bartow has arranged for sever-
al staging areas, around town
where supplies and equipment
can be prepared and distributed
to work crews in our area.

During or after a hurricane,
should I call Bartorw at 534-
0142 to tell the utility I don't
have power?
Not immediately. Bartow will
know the major circuits are out
and begin repairing them first.
Once the circuits are restored,
Bartow will, ask you through
the local media to begin calling
in with your individual .outage
information.

If a boil water notice is
issued, but power is out,
how do people make sure
their water is safe?
If you cannot boil water, use
bleach to purify water for drink-
inig. Use regular chlorine bleach
without added fragrances.
FolloW the purification direc-
tions on the label. If none are
given, use two drops of bleach per
quart of water; or 8 drops per gal-~
lon .of water. Let the water stand
for 30 minutes.'
Also, Clorox says you can make
a good sanitizing solution to wash
and disinfect dishes, countertops.
etc. by mixing one teaspoon of
bleach in one gallon of water.
Continue to use bottled or disin-
fected water for drinking and
cooking until Bartow's water sup-
ply has: been declared safe. Listen
to local neWvs sources for regular
updates,

What does Bartow tell peo-
ple about downed electric
lines?
Call 911 immediately to report
a downed electric line. Stay away
from all downed power lines
because they may be energized. If
you get close enough to an ener-


first as the frozen food will be safe
longer. Freezing and ,storing
water in clean containers to leave
in the refrigerator before the
stormihits can also help your food
stay cool. It's best to have plenty
of non-perishable food on hand to
get you through post-hurricane
recovery.
Of course, don't open the
re frigerator/freezer door any
more than necessary.

For people whose homes,
were flooded, is there any-
thing they should do before
turning their power back,
on at their breaker box?
Yes. Consult a private electri-
ciari to determine if it is safe to
restore power to your home. If ris-
ing water approached your home,
but just missed coming inside,
you may need to have an air con-
ditioning contractor check your
heating and cooling system.
The outdoor unit of the air con-
ditioner typically sits on the
ground, lower than the home, so
rising water may have gotten into
the electrical connections and
wiring of the compressor unit con-
trol panel.

People have called local
news stations complaining
that their neighbor got
power back on before they
did. Why is that happening?
Why am I the only one in
my neighborhood without
lights?
It could be that you and your
neighbor do not share the same
power line (more specifically, the
same circuit). The power line
feeding electricity to your home


may be damaged, while the one to
your neighbor's house is not. It
also could be that your individual
connection requires repair.
It may also be pidssible that
your home heeds internal electri-
cal repairs before you can receive
service.
-Again, Bartow will work to
restore power to the largest num-
ber of' customers first, moving to
individual locations once power
has been restored to major con-
centrations of customers.
If Bartow experiences
tremendous damage, will
Bartow go underground with
the replacement electric sys-
tem?
No. Bartow ,will generally
restore the system to the existing
design. Most lines will remain
overhead. The objective in any
restoration effort is to restore
power as quickly and safely as
possible.
Installing underground utili-
ties is a time-consuming job that
would greatly delay power
restoration to many customers.
When Bartow does convert ser;
vice from overhead to under-
ground, the overhead system
stays in place until all construc-
tion on the underground system,
is complete.
Only then is the service
switched over so that the power
outage is very brief.

During the restoration
effort, will Bartow be
assessing late fees to cus-
tomers who don't pay on
time?
No. If Bartow is hit by a'hurri-
pane requiring multiple days of


restoration efforts, Bartow will
suspend late fees until business
returns to normal.

Will Bartow reimburse cus-
tomers for the cost of food
lost to spoilage?
No. Hurricanes are considered
an act of nature and therefore
Bartow is ,not responsible for
spoilage. Bartow encourages cus-
tomers to buy canned goods, not
perishable:items, and keep food
stored in freezers to a minimum
during hurricane season.

What ifI or someone in my
home relies on medical
equipment powered by elec-
tricity? Will Bartow restore
my power first?
No. Bartow will focus first on
public health and safety facilities
(hospitals, police/fire stations,
schools, etc.) then begin restoring
power to major circuits before
responding to individual outages.
Customers facing this type of sit-
uation need to contact the
Emergency Operations Center
(EOC) in their county for assis-
tance.
The Bartow EOC telephone
number is 519-7478.

If I see a sewer overflow,
what should I do?
Certainly, stay away from the
waste and contact Bartow' City
Hall at 534-0100 to report it.
Bartow has portable, gas-powered
generators that it uses to keep
. pmp stations working in the
event of a major power outage
and prevent Sanitary Sewer
Overflows (SSOs' .,

yards. and two interceptions.
On their opening possession,
the Eagles drove 53 yards down
to Bartow's four-yard line. But a
George Jenkins fumble ended
the scoring threat. The loose ball
Swas recovered by defensive back
Malcolm Johnson.
Three plays later. Bartow
gave the ball back to the Eagles

was set up by a 47-yard punt re-.

rOur 75th Anniversary:


A Milestone and A Privilege
Today marks the 75th anniversary of our newspaper.
This 75th anniversary section traces the history of The Democrat and our companion news-
paper in Fort. Meade, The Leader from Our first issue, on Aug. 28, 1931:
The response of advertisers placing congratulatory messages was downright humbling.
In an era when newspapers large and small are bought and sold by chains on a regular basis,
there is a degree of pride that this one has been in the same family for four generations.
Our decisionlto remain independent and locally owned is not from lack of offers; we hear from
newspaper brokers who want to buy our newspaper (or sell us another one) on a regular basis. We
are flattered by all of them, and reject them courteously.
Newspapering is what we do, and we enjoy it.
SThanks for giving us the privilege of being your community newspaper for three-quarters of a
century.
Our staff looks forward twice a week to publishing the next issue, and to creating the next spe-
cial section, and to being we hope a positive force in our community.
Thank you for letting us into your homes each week. "

We're 75 Years Old Today;




Here's How We Got Here


The Polk County Democrat, founi
ed in Bartow in 1931 by S. Lloy
Frisbie with the help of his father
Sayer L. Frisbie, has been a fami
operation for four generations spai
ning 75 years.
The first issue was published c
Aug. 28,1931.
The Democrat, begun as a once-
week newspaper published on Frida
was started in competition with a
established daily newspaper, The Po'
County Record.
Printing was done at the plant
Bartow Printing Co. at 550 Norl
Broadway, a company established i
1920 by Sayer L. Frisbie. Until that pu
chase, the plant also had been home i
the Courier-Informant, one of Bartow
early newspapers. When Frisb
bought the printing company, TI
Polk County Record bought tf
Courier-Informant.
In 1946, The Democrat bought TI
Record from Mr. and Mrs. Roy
-Gallemore, and increased publicatic
frequency to twice a week: Tuesda
Sand Friday. The Record name is sti
carried on The Democrat's masthea
on the editorial page.
The Democrat moved into T1
Record building at 205 South Centr
Ave., and commercial printing opern
tions of The Record were moved to tl
Bartow Printing Co. plant.
In the 1950s, publication days we]
switched to Monday and Thursday.
Loyal Frisbie, son of Lloyd Frisbi
started his career at The Democr;
with its first issue as an unpaid stam
collecting columnist and printer
devil, the latter a term given to ti
lowest ranking member of the produ.
tion staff.
He joined the staff full time in 193


d- after graduating from Florida
'd .Southern College. He was managing
!r, editor, with responsibility for news
ly content.
n- He retired as publisher in 1981, but
continued as president of Frisbie
n Publishing Co., Inc., until he stepped
down as an officer and director of the
a- company in January 2004, because of
y, failing.health.
in At that point, S. L. Frisbie-,IV,
lk became president and secretary, and
his wife, Mary G. Frisbie, became vice-
of president and treasurer. Loyal Frisbie
th" continued on as copy editor/proof-
in reader for The Democrat until a few'
r- months before his death, from pneu-
of monia, on Dec. 5, 2004.
's After a series of TIAs (mini-strokes)
ie took their toll on his writing ability, he
ie became unable to continue writing his
ie award-winning column, Off My Chest.
The Democrat then began republish-
le ing the columns that he wrote while
T. serving as a combat infantryman in
in World War II.
ly The Democrat also publishes a
ll weekly "History from Our Files" fea-
,d ture that he compiled over the years.
Richard Frisbie, younger son of
te Lloyd Frisbie, joined the staff in 1946
al as an advertising salesman after serv-
a- ing in the Army Air Corps. He later
ie became business manager before
resigning from the newspaper staff to
re take over management of Bartow
Printing Co.
e, In 1964, S. L. Frisbie, IV, joined the
at staff as managing editor after serving
,p two years in the Army in Washington,
's D. C. He succeeded his father as pub-
le lisher in 1981, and as president of
c- Frisbie Publishing Co. in 2004.
Also in 1964, The Democrat moved
U7 into its present location at 190 South


Florida Ave. The building was built in
1908 as Dial and Reed's livery stable. A
few years later it became Reed's
Garage.
It was later ah .auto dealership and
still later a furniture store before its
renovation for the newspaper's offices
and printing plant..
In 1969, The Democrat began publi-
cation of a Fort Meade edition, and
two years later bought the name of the
defunct Fort Meade Leader and began
publishing The Leader as a- separate
newspaper.
In November of 1995, The Democrat
established Polk County Times, a
monthly newspaper geared to the
interests of employees of county gov-
ernment and the school system.
And on March 31, 1998, Frisbie
Publishing Co. bought The Lake Wales
News from Owen B. Brice. The Brices
and the Frisbies had been-friends for
several generations, and The News
had been printed at The Democrat's
plant for a number of years.
The Brice family decided to sell The
News after Owen Brice suffered a
stroke.
After printing on three successive
letterpress presses, The Democrat con-
verted to offset printing in 1971, a
move which improved photo repro-
duction quality and made possible the
switch to computerized typesetting.
In 1997,'a fourth printing unit was
purchased, allowing the printing of up
to 16 pages in a single press run, and
giving more options on the use of
color.
In March of 2003,' a four-color print-
ing unit was purchased, giving the
publishing company the ability to
print full color photographs and
advertisements.


In 2000, the company established
two website products,
PolkCountyDemocrat.com and
LakeWalesNews.com, and in 2003,
added a third website,
FortMeadeLeader.com.
Three generations of publishers'
wives have made their careers at The
Democrat, each without the original
intention of doing so.
Mrs. LloydFrisbie, better known by
her nickname of Cricket, joined the
staff "temporarily" as unpaid society
editor soon after the newspaper was
established, and held that position -
eventually with salary until 1956.
Louise K. Frisbie, wife of Loyal,
took over her husband's job when he
was drafted into the Army in 1944, and
continued to work at the newspaper,
either full time or part time, with only
a couple of years off, until her death in
1989.
When the Fort Meade edition was
instituted in 1969, she wrote a series of
articles on the history of Fort Meade.
That series evolved into an illustrated
column, "Pioneers," in the two news-
papers.
This also marked the beginning of a
second career as an author and histori-
an. She wrote three books: Peace River
Pioneers, Yesterday's Polk County, and
Florida's Fabled Inns, all richly illus-
trated volumes on the history (respec-
tively) of the four counties which abut
the Peace River, of Polk County; and of
many of Florida's oldest hotels.
Mary G. Frisbie, wife of S. L., joined
the staff as a part-time proofreader.in
1967, later became treasurer of the
publishing company, and is now vice-
president and treasurer of both Frisbie
Publishing Co., Inc., aid The Lake
Wales News, Inc.

Democrat Office Was Built as a Livery Stable


The building at 190 South Florida
Ave. in which The Polk County
Democrat has had its offices and print-
ing plant since 1964 was built in 1908,
occupied on Aug. 17, 1908, by "Dial
and Read's new livery stable."
The Courier-Informant newspaper
reported: "They now have one of the
finest livery stable buildings in this
part of the state and are to be congrat-
ulated on its completion."
Within a few years, reflecting the
changes in the times, the building
became Read's Garage.
In 1933, The Polk County Record
newspaper reported that Warren
Hosmer had leased the building and
transformed it into a "one-stop service
station" and Dodge-Plymouth agency.
(Editor's note: the "service station"
reference apparently was a reference to
automotive repair service; there is no
indication that the building was ever a
gasoline filling station.)
Four years later, a fire broke out at
night and reduced much of the build-
ing to rubble. It was rebuilt and contin-
ued to house automobile agencies for
more than 20 years.


On Oct. 17, 1939, Alton Moore, the
local Ford dealer, announced "his pur-
chase of the lease of Warren Hosmer
buildings." The Polk County
Democrat reported that. with Moore's
other property on Main Street, Moore
Motors would be "physically one of
the largest automobile agencies in this
part of Florida."
The next owner was Clifton Howell,
who operated a Buick agency in the
building.
Frisbie Publishing Co., Inc., owner
of The Democrat, bought the building
from Howell Buick, Inc., on Nov. 23,
1959, as the future site of The"
Democrat. The building then was
leased for three years to Scarborough
Furniture Co.
In the Spring of 1964, remodeling of
the building for The Democrat's offices
and printing plant began. In one area,
workmen had to go through four dif-
ferent layers of concrete, the result of
previous remodeling. The Democrat
moved into the newly-remodeled
building on Saturday, Sept. 19, 1964,
beginning the move in the pre-dawn
darkness.


On Sept. 21, 1964, Frisbie Publishing
Co. bought a strip of land immediately
north of -the building (formerly
Strickland Tire Co.) from R.C. Hatton
for future expansion of the building. In
the meantime, the building was razed
and the area used for parking.
The expansion took place in 1982,
when an addition was built as a retire-
ment office for Loyal and Louise
Frisbie.
On April 1, 2005, Frisbie Publishing
Co. bought from Associated
Publications Corp. (corporate parent
of Bartow Printing Co.) the half-block
of vacant land across Summerlin Street
due south of The Democrat.
At one time, a corrugated metal liv-
ery stable had been on the north end of
the property, and a second rate two-
story apartment house (possibly once
a single-family home) was on the
south. The metal building was razed,
probably in the late 1960s, and
Associated Publications Corp. razed
the apartment house when it bought
the property in the early 2000s.
The property was purchased for
overflow staff parking, and to provide


the option for eventual expansion of
the newspaper's offices and printing
plant.
The logical way for the newspaper
to expand its building is to the east,
taking over a little-used parking area.
At that time, and with growth of the
staff, the property across Summerlin
Street from the newspaper plant
would be needed for staff parking.
In the Spring of 2005, the City of
Bartow began a comprehensive
redesign of Main Street. The city
approached The Democrat with a pro-
posal to convert the main staff and cus-
tomer parking lot in front of the office
into a landscaped "oasis." In return,
the city would reserve the .on-street
diagonal parking spaces that would be
created in front of the office for staff
and customer parking. A binding
agreement to that extent was executed,
and work on the "oasis" began.
On Thursday, Aug. 31, 2006, The
Democrat will hold an open house to
mark its 75th anniversary and to show
off the "oasis" and its still relatively
new four-color printing unit.

In 1964, The Democrat moved into its present location (above), 190 South Florida Avenue, a-former livery stable
and garage. Since then, more than the cars have changed. In 2005, the City of Bartow began conversion of the front
parking lot into a landscaped patio as part of the Main Street redesign. New plants and trees in 2006 (right) contin-

Nuggets of Democrat History and Trivia


The first issue of The Polk County
Democrat, published on Aug. 28,
1931, had 20 pages. Three of the
advertisers in that first issue are still
in business today: Bartow Printing
Co., Gibson and Wirt Insurance, and
Wilson Drug. Full-page ads were
placed by The Tampa Morning
Tribune and Hav-A-Tampa Cigars.
Sayer Lloyd Frisbie, editor and man-
ager of The Democrat, had been an
executive at The Tribune for more
than 10 years before moving to
Bartow, and undoubtedly used his
Tampa connections to sell those two
advertisements.

Most community (once a week or
twice-a-week) newspapers are deliv-
ered by mail and through single-
copy sales from vending machines
and at retail stores. The Polk County
Democrat is an exception (as is The
Fort Meade Leader). We have had
home delivery since the newspaper
was established in 1931. Initially, the
newspaper was delivered by full-
time staff members, sometimes with
the assistance of a kid or two. (When


cars had running boards, the young-
sters would stand on the running
board to throw papers.) As circula-
tion grew, The Democrat switched to
delivery by a dozen boys on bicycles.
(In that era, Florida law limited
newspaper delivery jobs to boys.)
Around 1960, delivery was convert-
ed to adult drivers again, with three
contract carriers hired, each assisted
by two of the previous bicycle carri-
ers. (As one of the boys ruefully
acknowledged at the time, "We
know, you kept the best six of us.")
Over the years, we have expanded to
five contract drivers in Bartow and
one in Fort Meade.

Recycling has become a major
commitment of The Democrat -
and of the newspaper industry in
general over the past couple of
decades. Every issue is printed on
recycled newsprint; indeed, most of
the newsprint on the market today is
recycled, manufactured partly from
old newspapers, and partly from
wood pulp. We give our own scrap
newsprint to a retiree, who sells it to


a recycling center in Lakeland. He
also gets our discarded aluminum
soft drink cans for sale to recyclers.
The remnants of newsprint that
remain on the rolls of paper are sold
to readers for a penny a foot, about
what the paper costs us. The printing
plates which go on the press are alu-
minum. Some are sold to readers for
household projects, such as roofing
dog houses; the balance are sold to
aluminum recyclers. The film on
which pages are shot is a silver-
based product. We sell the film to
recyclers who burn the film and
recover the silver from it. We give
away the 55-gallon drums in which
we buy ink; we're told they make
excellent "burn barrels" and jumbo
barbecue grills. Wooden pallets are
given away to anyone who wants
them. Every workstation in the office
has a box to collect office paper for
recycling. In 1995, we won a county
award for recycling practices among
small businesses. One unsciet~tillc
but dramatic measurement of our
recycling efforts: we used to have a
two-man cleaning crew come in five


nights a week to empty all our trash
cans. We now use a cleaning service
which has one woman come in on
the weekend.

Another major environmental
commitment made by The Democrat
is in the'chemicals we use. Years ago,
we switched from petroleum-based
ink to soy-based ink, manufactured
from a renewable resource. Since we
buy our ink in 55-gallon barrels, that
is a significant reduction in oil con-
sumption. The conversion from con-
ventidnal photography to digital
photography eliminated the use of
photographic film and paper, both of
which have a high silver content,
and also eliminated the chemicals
used in a news darkroom. In our off-
set darkroom (where page film is
processed) we have a silver recovery
unit to keep silver .which is removed
from film during the development
process from going into the sewer
system. The silver flake collected is
sold to a recycler.

August 28, 2006 75th Anniversary -'


year occasionally had scenes of
young boys hawking newspapers
shouting (invariably): "Extra! Extra!
Read all about it!" Black-and-white
movies have been replaced by full
color films, newsboys have been
replaced by coin-operated racks, and
extras published when a news
event of earthshaking importance
occurred have been largely
replaced by the broadcast media and
the Internet. Nonetheless, The
Democrat has published three
"extras" in its nearly 75-year history.
The first was when arrests were
made in the notorious "Ski Mask
Gang" attacks, and the suspects
lived near Bartow. The story broke
on a Tuesday (if memory serves) and
we simply remade the front page of
the previous day's issue, and picked
up the rest of the paper unchanged.
Sales were through racks. The most
recent "extra" was published when a
federal court ordered school bound-
aries redrawn only a day or two
before the start of the school year.
Our next issue would not be pub-
lished until after the opening day of
class. We rushed into print with a
tabloid-size "extra" explaining what
was happening, including a map of
the new boundaries. (For that proj-


ect, we were recognized by the Polk
County school board and the Florida
Public Relations Assn.)

The most exciting of our "extra"
editions was published when a
grand jury issued a scathing criti-
cism 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 pub-
lic until 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 pre-
sentment, (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.

"Never get into an argument with
a man who buys his paper by the


truckload and his ink by the barrel."
That advice supposedly is attributed
to a politician of yesteryear, and has
been repeated throughout the ages.
Although our newspaper is hardly
among the nation's journalistic
giants, we do indeed buy our paper
and ink in those quantities. We usu-
ally buy five truckloads of newsprint
a year, each of which contains
around 48 rolls of paper, for a total
weight of 22 tons or so. Newsprint is
priced by the ton, and the price fluc-
tuates several times a year. For com-
petitive reasons, we don't disclose
how much we are paying, but let's
say each truckload of paper costs
about as much as a new car or a year
in a private college. Each roll weighs
around 925 pounds, contains about
five miles of paper, and.will print
about 15,000 four-page sections.
(Newspapers are printed in incre-
ments of two pages; we can print
from two to 16 pages in one press
run; we average around 12 pages per
press run. Newsprint also comes in
half-width rolls, called dinkies,
which print two page sections. They
are needed for press runs of 2, 6, 10
or 14 pages.) All of our-paper is recy-
cled newsprint, made in large part
from old newspapers. Once the


exception on the market, today
almost all newsprint sold in the
United States is from recycled fiber.
(So when you take your old newspa-
pers to the recycling bin, you really
are preserving America's forests.)

We buy our ink by the barrel (and
plenty of people argue with us any-
way). It's sold by the pound, in 55-
gallon barrels. (Larger newspapers
have ink delivered by tank trucks.) A
barrel of black printer's ink weighs
470 pounds, and in that quantity,
sells for around a dollar a pound. We
average a barrel a month. Our black
ink is soy-based, which reduces the
consumption of petroleum and
makes the ink more environmentally
friendly. We purchase colored ink in
smaller quantities, typically 80
pounds for the three basic hues used
in full-color printing. Called process
colors, they are magenta (red), cyan
(blue) and yellow. The price varies
by color because of the different
chemicals used to create each color,
and typically costs about three times
as much as black ink. Specially
mixed colors cost about twice as
much as the three process colors.

Today's Fort Meade Leader



Began as Democrat Edition


On July 15, 1969, the first Fort
Meade edition of the' Polk County
Democrat was published.
The Fort Meade edition would later
acquire, and publish under, the name
of the community's long time newspa-
per, The Fort Meade Leader.
In the first publication of the Fort
Meade edition, it was announced that
for the first few weeks of publication,
the newspaper would be delivered
free to all Fort Meade homes. A special
subscription rate of $5 for the first year
was offered.
Editor and Publisher Loyal Frisbie
wrote an editorial in that first edition
urging the completion of the four-lari-
ing of U.S. Highway 17 between
Homeland and Fort Meade.
That premiere edition also marked
the first article in the lengthy series of
stories on the history of this area, writ-
ten by Copy Editor Louise Frisbie.


From the beginning, Mrs. Frisbie went
on to write two books on this history
of Polk County "Peace River
Pioneers" and "Yesterday's Polk
County," and a book on the history of
many of the state's earliest hotels,
"Florida's Fabled Inns."
The Fort Meade edition set up shop
in humble quarters at 5 North French
Ave., and applied for membership in
the Fort Meade Chamber of
Commerce.
Society news, for many years, was
written by local women working out
of their homes. Most of the "hard
news" was covered from the Bartow
office, primarily by S. L. Frisbie, IV,
who was then managing editor and
became publisher at the retirement of
his father in 1981.
The original Fort Meade Leader
ceased publication in January of 1971.
The bank foreclosed on the property,


which in turn was purchased by the
City of Fort Meade. That building, at
the corner of Northwest First Street
and Albritton Street, is now the city's
police station.
When the city purchased the build-
ing, it also purchased the entity of the
defunct Fort.Meade Leader.
STo keep the historic Leader name
alive, Frisbie Publishing Co. (owners
of The Democrat) purchased it from
the city.The Fort Meade Leader name
reappeared in print on May 7, 1971,
initially sharing The Democrat name
on the flag of what had been started as
the Fort Meade edition.
Soon after the acquisition of the
Leader name, the newspaper office
rented new quarters at 121 West
Broadway when the French Avenue
office site was sold to Flagship State
Bank for a parking lot and drive-up
teller facility.


A small line of school and office
supplies was added .at the West
Broadway office, doing business as
Leader School and Office Supplies.
Still later, a used paperback book
exchange was opened in the back por-
tion of the same office.
In December 1982, the Leader office
was moved into its present larger
office at 25 West Broadway, meeting
the need for more room for the used
book operation and the desire for more
modern, spacious quarters.
The company eventually purchased
that building, which most recently had
been a florist's shop.
That building lost much of its roof
in the hurricane season of 2004, and
reopened almost a full year later, reno-
vated with a turn of the century look.


Thank you for 75 Years of great service


to the Bartow Community.


We are proud to share in this


wonderful celebration, and we can


only hope to last as long.





CONGRATULATIONS!

i954 F r Was Most Harrowing


Day in Te Democrat's History


Far and away the most harrowing
day in the 75-year history of The Polk
County Democrat was Tuesday, Nov.
16, 1954.
On that date, fire destroyed the
Tomlinson Cadillac- Oldsmobile deal-
ership, which shared a common wall
with the building in which the offices
and printing plant of the newspaper
were located.
The Democrat was then located in
The Record building, across the street
from the Bartow post office. The auto
agency was located immediately
south, in the location occupied today
by the Boswell and Dunlap law firm.
The interior of the dealership had
just been repainted, and a kerosene
stove was being used to generate heat
to speed the drying of the oil-based
paint.
The stove was being moved at
about 12:15 p.m. when it exploded,
and flames spread instantly, apparent-
ly fed in part by fumes from the drying
paint. A salesman at the dealership,


unable,to reach a door, leaped through
a jalousie window to reach safety.
A Tomlinson employee who called
the fire station to report the fire had to
drop the phone and flee from the
building to escape the heat and flames
before he could report the location of
the fire, and Democrat staff members
and others waited impatiently for help
to arrive as the fire station phone rang
busy.
The firefighter who answered the
phone heard the crackling flames, and
thought it was children playing with
the phone.
Rob Huffaker, a volunteer fireman,
gave Democrat staff members another
number to try, and rushed to the fire
station to turn in the alarm in person,
arriving just as the call on the second
line was being answered.
Louise Frisbie, copy editor of The
Democrat, saw a thin column of smoke
as she returned to the office at 12:15
p.m., and wondered if a tire outside
the auto agency was burning. She


wrote a detailed account of the fire.
One minute later, she heard the first
of several explosions.
Within five minutes after the explo-
sion, the dealership was engulfed in
flames, and it seemed impossible that
The Record building with The
Democrat on the ground floor and
offices of a law firm, a fruit broker, and
an insurance agency on the second
floor could be saved.
The entire membership of the
Bartow Lions Club, meeting at the
Masonic Temple three blocks away,
rushed to the scene, and joined in the
firefighting work and the salvage of
furnishings, equipment, and irreplace-
able bound volumes of the newspaper..
Several oil drums in the auto agency
exploded as flames spread.
Twenty-five minutes after the fire
broke out, and perhaps 15 minutes
after fire trucks arrived, it began to
appear that the fire might be brought
under control before it destroyed The
Record building.


In another 20 minutes, at 1 p.m., the
fire was clearly under control, even as
removal of equipment and furniture
from the newspaper offices continued.
The auto agency, however, was
reduced to a pile of smoldering rubble.
Also destroyed was a late model
Cadillac ambulance owned by
Whidden Funeral Home and two other
automobiles at the dealership for serv-
ice.
Cars parked in the adjoining park-
ing lot were Scorched.
The heat was so intense that fire-
fighters were unable to use the
hydrant nearest the building until the
fire was partially extinguished.
SThe glass windows on four parking
meters across the street in front of the
post office were melted by the heat.
A half-block away, 188 panes of
class at the Gentry Brothers auto
agency were cracked by the heat.
In 1954, The Democrat was pub-
lished on Tuesday and Friday, and
work on that day's issue was nearing

completion when the fire broke out.
Not long after the fire began, water
was ankle-deep in the printing plant,
and electricity-was disconnected.
Loyal Frisbie, editor of The
Democrat, contacted The Lake Wales
News and made arrangement to print
that day's edition on that newspaper's
press. The News already was printing
the Winter Haven News-Chief, whose
plant had been destroyed by fire the
previous Saturday.
That day's issue, with a lengthy
story and two photographs taken as
the fire progressed, was delivered
about three hours late.
Friday's issue was published in The


Democrat's plant, only hours after
electricity was reconnected. The front
page had eight photographs, some
taken by the staff, others by Bartow's
two commercial photographers.
The fire destroyed the closed files of
the Judson and Willson law firm, and
extensively damaged the firm's law
library.
The $100,000 fire was "easily
Bartow's worst fire since the mid-
1930s, when the upper story of the
business building in the 100 block of
East Main Street was burned," The
Democrat reported.
Despite a couple of close calls, there
were no injuries in the fire.

The Staff Speaks...


Name: Teresa Crutchfield
Position: Ad typesetter
Length of employment: 3.5 years
Favorite memory: I worked here for
about three years in 1991-94 and then
left. When I came back three years ago,
it was like I never left. Same people,
same memories, the only thing -differ-
ent was the new Mac computer sys-
tem.
Best thing about working at The
Democrat: Being able to bring my son,
Donald, in when I am in a jam,
Funniest memory: "Jenna did you
know ,.."
Favorite hobbies: Reading maga-
zines, working in the yard, music and
spending time with my husband
Timmv and our son.


Name: Joanne "JoJo" Ethington
Position: Composing supervisor
Length of employment: 22 years
Favorite memory: When I started
working here and all the old-timers
were here. It was a different atmos-
phere Mr. Sikes, Harold Garrett,
Mrs. Pipes, Gladys Young, Louanna
Locke.
Best thing about working at The


Democrat: I love what I do and how
we all pull together when needed.
Funniest memory: When Linda
Holcomb blew the candles out at our
Christmas party and stuck her eye-
lashes together. She blew wax every-
where.
Favorite hobbies: Working in my
yard, riding the motorcycle.with Dan,
Sand spending time with my dogs.


Name: Harold Delille
Position: Pressroom assistant
Favorite memory: Picking on Peggy


Name:'Mary Frisbie
Position: Vice president and treasur-
er of Frisbie Publishing Company,
bookkeeper
Length of employment: 38 years
Favorite memory: Newspaper con-
test judging trips' (especially New
Orleans), and Florida Press
Association Conventions.
Best thing about working at The
Democrat: Family feeling.
Favorite hobbies: Sudoku, reading
mysteries.


Name: S. L. Frisbie, IV
Position: Publisher
Length of employment: 42 years
Favorite memory: Walking down
Main Street with my son, Loyal, who
was then our downtown carrier, the
day we published our. "extra" about
the resignation of Sheriff Dan Daniels
and the appointment of Larry Crow to
succeed him. Loyal was .pulling a
wagon (the trademark of our down-
town carrier), and telling people excit-
edly that it was only the second time in
our history that we had published an
extra. Even at the age of 12 or so, he
had a sense of the significance of that
event, and I had the chance to share
the moment with him.
Best thing about working at The
Democrat: (1) The staff: watching them
develop professionally and develop
personal friendships with each other
and (when I'm lucky) with me; (2) The
sense of being able to do something to
make our community a better place to
live.
Funniest. memory: Betsy Ravenel,
our long-time Community Life editor,
loved to play practical jokes. One of
her favorites was to make a birthday
"cake" by putting icing on a cake plate


cover, and watching as the birthday
honoree tried to cut it. But she outdid
herself one day with a birthday pie
that she prepared for Bill Sikes, our
long-time production foreman. Instead

wood shavings as the primary compo-

not showing a sign that his special pie
tasted like .. well. ... pine shavings.

You are the person we care about. It's time for churches to
meet people's needs the way Jesus did:

* A church that really cares about your huts, and offers
love, acceptance, and help when you need it most.

* A church where every Sunday you receive a spiritual and
inspirational boost that gives you confidence for the week
ahead.

* A positive church that brings out the best in you and
enables you to enjoy a happy, fulfilling lifestyle.

* A church that strengthens your marriage and family,
builds lasting friendships, and helps you to succeed in the
real world.

* A church that gives practical answers to your problems,
eliminating the fear, frustration, and worry that can defeat
you.

God wants you to know Him through a loving personal
relationship, not through a religion of fear. Life was meant to be
enjoyed, not just endured. Why are we sharing this truth with
you? BECAUSE YOU ARE IMPORTANT!
Join us this week for worship at 11 a.m. and receive a FREE BIBLE!

The First Issue: A Visit to 1931


Our first issue, on Aug. 28, 1931, is
surprising in several ways.
The biggest surprise is how little
things have changed residents
seem to share the same concerns 75
years ago as we do now: schools,
growth, and home life.
In fact, what has changed the most
is the style of newspaper writing and
the terms that are used. Editorial com-
ment is not limited to the opinion
page, the writing is sometimes a bit


pretentious and more stylized, and
there seems to have been a shortage of
commas in lead type.
On the next few pages, we share
some of the stories from the first edi-
tion that we found interesting and
humorous from our 21st century per-
spective.
Who knows what readers will think
in 2081?

INTRODUCING OURSELVES


You are today reading The Polk
County Democrat for the first time.
We sincerely hope that this prac-
tice will become a weekly habit.
The publishers of this paper do
not come to Bartow as strangers.
As a matter of fact we have been
actively in business in Bartow for
the past 12 years as owners and
operators of the Bartow Printing
Company.
This institution in addition to
serving the printing requirement of
Bartow individuals and institu-
tions has been the production plant
for The Citrus Industry and The
Fish and Oyster Reporter, monthly
magazines owned and operated by
the publishers of The Democrat.
So, it was perfectly natural that
our interests should more and
more center in this city, with the
result that our newest child, The
Polk County Democrat, is present-
ed to you today.


We enter the newspaper field in
Bartow and Polk County with no
thought or desire to encroach upon
the rights of papers already estab-
lished.
Candidly, our, motives are not
altogether altruistic, although it is
our desire to serve the community
in which we live to the very best of
our ability.
Having, as we have said, other
interests here, and having sur-
veyed the field, we believe that
there is ample room in this section
for a good weekly newspaper a
paper which will make the effort
expended in its production remu-
nerative to its publishers:
We do not subscribe entirely to
the mouse trap and beaten track
theory, but we do believe that if we
issue a publication of sufficient
merit, that reader and advertiser
support will naturally follow.
We ask for and would deserve


no other consideration from the cit-
izens of Bartow and Polk County.
Further elucidating, let us state
here that we feel no great urge to
revolutionize the conduct of life in
Bartow. We've found from experi-
ence that the conduct of any com-
munity moral, social or other-
wise pretty generally represents
the desire of the majority in such
matters.
We propose to cover the local
news field thoroughly, believing
that in so doing, we shall cater to
the desires of the most readers.
The news we present will be
based upon facts, not upon
hearsay, suspicion or surmise. We
realize that only by so doing can
we build the confidence necessary
to the success of our publication.
As a community publication
varied news items concerning
everyone making up this commu-
nity will be welcomed in these


columns.
The politics of our publication is
irrevocably emblazoned in the
name of our paper.
The editor and manager of The
Democrat was for more than a
decade associated with The Tampa
Tribune in an executive capacity
and others of our personnel have
reason to suspect that they are rea-
sonably well versed in the art of
newspapering. 6ut as we have stat-
ed before, we prefer to be judged
by the character of the publication
we shall issue rather than by per-
formances of the past.
Finally, we want to state we will
welcome suggestions from what-
ever source.
After all this is to be your paper
and aside from perverting the
news, we shall endeavor to do
everything possible to make it a
paper you will like better with each
passing week.
From the Aug. 28, 1931 edition


Dr. Ralph Nobo and his staff

want to

Congratulate

The Polk County Democrat,

greatly serving Bartow

BARTOW AIRPORT HAS POSSIBILITIES


By Bradley Scofield
When the matter of an air port for
the city of Bartow was first agitated
several months ago, there was some
discussion as to the necessity for a proj-
ect of the kind in a community with
apparently as little aerial'activity as
then existed in Bartow.
It was felt by some that our geo-
graphical position precluded any pos-
sibility of the city's entering into the
field of air travel, due to the fact that it
lay almost exactly in the center of-the
state and well between the existing air
lines in operation at that time.
At a joint meeting of the service
clubs of the city, together with a large
number of the leading citizens of the
city, the matter of securing a landing
field was discussed by a number of the.
prominent fliers of this part of the state,
who flew to Bartow as the guests of the
city for that occasion.
It will be remembered that Paul W.
Grassfield, representative for the State
Bureau of Aviation was the chief speak-
er and he was followed by such others
as L.R. Bentley of Lakeland, P.J. Sones
of Haines City and Lieut. E.C. Nilson of
Orlando.
The message brought by these avia-
tors was that the future method of trav-
el would be in the air and the town that
did prepare for it would certainly find
itself more and more -off the beaten


track as time progressed.
As the result of that meeting and
through the efforts of the committee
appointed, the Armour Fertilizer
Company gave to the city of Bartow
the tract of land which now comprises
Armour Field.
At very little expense to the city the
port was put in flying shape and short-
ly afterward the dedication took place
upon the visit of the State Air Tour.
Planes of every make and type were
flown including the fast flying
squadron of naval planes from the gov-
ernment training station at Pensacola,
which clearly demonstrated the fact
that the port is large enough to accom-
modate heavy air traffic.
In the short time since the field was
opened, several Bartow men have
received and completed instruction in
flying and are now able to use this
splendid air port. The log book for the
port shows scarcely a day that some
aviator has not landed and taken off
from the field that was thought unnec-
essary such a short time ago.
One does not have to be a seasoned
air traveler to appreciate Armour Field.
-A few trips to, surrounding air ports
will convince you that there is not
another town in this part of the state
with so ideal a location.'
Only one mile from the heart of the
city and on a main highway, with tele-
phone and restaurant service merely


for the asking, it is equipped most con-
veniently.
That it comes more and more into
use is inevitable and with a small effort
on the part of the people of this city,
great results can be obtained.
It is not only practical and possible,
but entirely probable that the United
States Government, will in the near
future, find it necessary to install a
cross-state or shuttle line to connect the
existing mail lines on each coast, and
on this shuttle line will be located the
terminal from which east and west
bound traffic will start north.
It is easy to see that following the
government lines will come the big
transportation companies and greatly
increased aerial activity.
It takes no great stretch of the imag-
ination to see the immense berry crop,
for which this part of the' state is
famous, shipped via the air today and
in the market- tomorrow, carried by
great air freighter with consequent sav-
ing in loss from decay, and slow trans-
portation;'and still less imagination to
see this terminal situated in Bartow.
SArmour Field has or can have every
qualification necessary for the acquir-
ing of this important position if it is the
will of the people of Bartow.
The three main factors in the selec-
tion of this terminal will be the geo-
graphical position of a well-prepared
field, ease of access to telephone, tele-


23


graph, hotel and railroad accommoda-
tions and proper airplane hangar facil-
ities.
Armour Field has no apologies to
offer to any other air port in the state
on any of the points above mentioned
with the exception of a hangar for the
housing of the flying public.
As yet, no attempt has been made
along that line of development, but the
time is nearing when it will be of vital
importance to this city.
The erection of a hangar at this time
does not by any means guarantee
Bartow as a stop on the mail lines, but
it cannot help but be a great factor in
the selection of Bartow for a station
when in the future a terminal site is
found necessary.
It will however, bring to the city at
once an established flying school and a
larger portion of the flying public,
which though increasing all the time is
now passing by this city because of the
lack of proper housing conditions for
the planes used in travel.
Plans and.estimates will be available
in the near future for the method and
cost-of erection of a hangar suitable for
such a port as Armour Field and it is to
be hoped that Bartow will be for. once
and for all placed permanently on the
map in this new era of transportation
by air.

BARTOW'S FUTURE


There is a tendency on the part of
most of us, especially in times like
these, to be rather free in our criticism
of everything in general and of our
home town in particular.
It has been the experience of the
writer to observe a considerable meas-
ure of such criticism in reference to
Bartow during the past several
months.
Apparently there are people in this
community who derive a certain meas-
ure of satisfaction from relating the
glories of Bartow in days gone by,
inferring rather broadly that the
Bartow of today is a mere shell of its
former self, and that there is no likeli-
hood of its ever again reaching its for-
mer glories.
Then, too, there are those who, in
the ardor of their enthusiasm, would
remedy all of Bartow's ills by staging a
wholesale exhibition of high class
funerals. And while we have no desire
to work a hardship on our friend Pack
Whidden, our sense of humanity
deplores such a move.
As a matter of fact, it occurs to us
that all the remedy necessary is a little
keener appreciation on the part of
most of us, of the real possibilities that
are Bartow's today.


Bartow undoubtedly has reason to
feel proud of its history. The reputation
for having the largest per capital
wealth of any section in the United
States is reason for justifiable pride.
But we must remember that one can-
not subsist forever upon a reputation.
Some extremely laudable programs
for airport developments, for new
industries,. for. the reopening of the
Oaks Hotel and. other equally as
worthwhile achievements have been
announced. :
Any one of these would result in
doing much good for Bartow and the
achievement of all such plans would
place Bartow in a position far above
any preceding period of her history.
And all these things may be accom-
plished through the awakening of a
greater measure of civic spirit than
exists today.
It may appear presumptuous for us
to make the suggestion, but in doing
so, we don't feel that we are telling any
reader of ours anything new. We
believe that everyone who has the best
interests of Bartow at heart fully real-
izes this fact.
It's just a matter of doing something
about it.


PRISCILLA'S POINTERS


Half a teaspoon of cream tartar plus
one quarter of a teaspoon of soda have
the same leavening power as one tea-
spoon of baking powder, and may be
used with either sweet or sour milk.
If the exact shade of a darning
thread is not at hand, a good substitute
will be found by threading the needle
with two threads of different shades as
near as possible to the required one.
The waxed containers which are
used for ice cream, cottage cheese, oys-
ters, etc., are convenient to keep upon
the pantry shelf. They may be used in
a variety of ways. Tiny plants may be
kept therein until time to set them in
the earth, soups or puddings for a sick
friend can be carried easily and there
will be no dishes to return.


When the gravy lumps, use the egg-
beater to restore it to the required
smoothness. Batter cakes may be
whipped into shape in no time with
the same utensil.
Scraps or fillings of copper placed
in the water of the vase holding zin-
nias will prevent the unpleasant odor
and deterioration of the stems which
are such disagreeable features of other-
wise delightful cut flowers.
One fourth of a cup of cocoa can be
used in place of one square of choco-
late. Use a little less flour when using
cocoa in cake batter.
To peel onions without weeping,
dip them first into boiling water, then
peel from the root end upward.

POLK COUNTY SCHOOLS RANK HIGH IN STATE


"The general public of Polk County,"
said T.T. Hatton, county superintendent
of schools, "does not appreciate the mag-
nitude of our school system. .This is
probably due to the fact that each com-
munity is thinking in terms of its own
school system and riot of the county as a
whole.
"As a matter of fact this county stands
fourth in size among the counties of
Florida in school population, being out-
ranked only by Duval, Dade and
Hillsborough. Last year we had a total of
15,179 white children and 3,724 Negro
children in our schools. That makes a
grand total of 18,903 school children -
the largest enrollment of any school year
in the history of the country.
It required 616 teachers to take care of
this number of pupils or an average of a
littler over 30 pupils to the teacher,
which we consider an excellent average
especially when one realizes that in high
schools, this average does not run so
high.
"Beginning with the fall term of 1929,
we put into effect a teachers' salary
schedule whereby the teacher was paid
upon a basis of what he had in the way
of training and experience. While it is
very difficult to make a schedule which.
can take care of many extra-curricular
activities there is no question but what


the salary schedule is the fairest method
of paying teachers yet devised. It places
a premium on preparation and experi-
ence and ifthe teacher desires to raise his
salary it is-then up to him to train himself
still further and thus automatically
increase his own salary.
"I believe we have had a larger num-
ber of teachers doing summer school
work since this schedule went into effect
than at any previous time in the history
of the county, because there was the
incentive of better pay as a reward.
"Furthermore the salary schedule
rewards the teacher on the basis of fit-
ness for the job rather than onfa basis of
political preferment.
"In a comparison recently made with
other counties of the state to determine
where Polk County stood in the matter
of average annual salaries to teachers, I
found that of 15 of Florida's largest or
most progressive counties,, that Polk
County stood lowest of the number with
an average annual salary of $1,000.44,
Pinellas County being the highest with
$1270.00 annual salary.
"People sometimes forget that this
average annual salary is for 12 months
although it is paid to the teacher over a
period of eight or nine months. The
salary, in other words, should be divided
should be divided by 12 instead of by


eight or nine. The teacher must finance
himself through the summer on this
amount or attend summer school.
"There is considerable agitation at
times in favor of a decrease of teacher's
salaries, but I believe when we consider
the fact that Florida is $600 per annum
below the general average of the United
States, we are not over-paying our teach-
ers if we expect them to improve them-
selves and make better teachers.
"The transportation of our school
children is an item of considerable
expense. Last year we spent from district
funds $26,390.25 from the general fund
of $35,439.35, making a total of
$61,819,60.
"The county board is seriously con-
sidering-taking over the transportation
of-the school children another year, own-
ing its own busses and employing its
drivers. They believe that a substantial
savings can be made in this particular
expenditure.
"Our high school curriculum is based,
on certain standards set by the state, but
we have been forced for financial rea-
sons to cut out some departments which
under favorable conditions would
unquestionably be worthwhile for our
students.
'I refer to art and music. The only
modern language in our high schools is


Spanish. German was banned during the
war and has never been replaced, and
French is not taught, either.
"There is a very sound economic rea-
son, of course, for the inclusion of
Spanish in our course of study. With our
proximity to the Latin American coun-
tries and the future trade relations which
are bound to grow between Florida and
our Latin neighbors, Spanish is a subject
that every high school student should
master well.
"Polk County has the largest number
of high schools of any country in the
state due to the number of large towns
and their location in the county, which
necessitates separate schools rather than
a consolidated school which would
prove impracticable in this county and
too revolutionary for consideration.
"It's an interesting subject and one
which has a very direct bearing on the
future of this country and the state as
well.
"With all our expenditures for good
roads and improvements, for develop-
ment of our lands and groves, the dollars
spent for the education of our children is
most likely to return us the greatest rev-
enue in the years to come."

YES YOU CAN, CAN A COW


When it comes to the matter of can-
ning there apparently is no such word
as "can't" in the vocabulary of the Polk
County demonstration agents.
It-has not been so very long ago
since the little job of successfully "can-
ning" a full grown chicken was consid-
ered quite an achievement, but this
sort of thing now appears to be looked
upon rather in the light of child's play.
Miss Mosel Preston, one of the
county demonstration agents, con-
ducted a canning demonstration last
Tuesday at the home of Mrs. Sheretz,
below Fort Meade, in which a whole
cow was canned.
Our reporter learned .with some
relief that the bovine victim was not
placed "as is" -in one huge glass con-
tainer, but even so we are disposed to
consider that the little job of canning a
healthy, full-weight cow all at one sit-
ting is indeed quite some achievement.


It appears that the beef was sub-
divided into roasts, stews, pot roasts,
hash and even soup, all of these table
recipes being prepared in the custom-
ary way and then canned under pres-
sure through the use of pressure cook-
ers.
Two stoves were used in the
process, one a large wood stove and
the other a carbide gas stove, while the
pressure cookers were used to main-
tain an even temperature which is
essential ii the successful canning of
beef, the same as in the canning of frog
legs, chicken hearts or what have you.
Taking lessons from the original
Chicago packer who first discovered
that the squeal was about the only por-
tion of a porker which could not be
commercially used, the bones were
boiled in a huge kettle in the yard and
furnished a highly appetizing soup,
which along with the rest of the being


now reposes peacefully in air-tight
cans awaiting the call for future use.
Mrs. Sheretz has a goodly supply of
canned vegetables, fruit and meat in
her room and is certainly prepared for
a long winter and deep snow if such a
catastrophe should occur.
The Sheretz house is an ideal coun-
try place, being equipped with run-
ning water and showers in both house
and barns, with screened porches both
for working and resting. Carbide gas
for light and fuel goes to make this
place a most comfortable and thor-
oughly modern establishment.
Referring again to the rather gigan-
tic task accepted and accomplished by
the home demonstration agent our
reporter is disposed to wonder what
should happen if someone were to
suggest that canned elephant was con-
sidered a delicacy.

25 PERCENT

AS MANY

DIVORCES IN

POLK AS

MARRIAGES
Based upon the records of the coun-
ty it would appear that matrimonial
felicity is about 75 percent effective in
Polk County.
Just as a matter figures there were
753 marriage licenses issued in this
county during the year 1930, and dur-
ing the same period 179 divorces were
granted in Polk County courts.
Up to date this year, 498 marriage
licenses have been issued in the coun-
ty judges' office, which up to the first
of August, 130 divorces were granted.
The months of May and July
appeared to be the hardest months for
the maintenance of conjugal bliss as 28
divorces were granted in May and 23
in July.

The Newspapering Frisbies:




Four Generations of Journalism


(This lengthy dissertation, which the
author called "The History of the
Newspapering Frisbies," was compiled by
the late Loyal Frisbie, probably beginning
in the mid-1990s, with several revisions. It
includes interesting family insights into
the evolution of the Frisbie family's com-
mitment to journalism. If at times it seems
to become a bit personal . well . Dad,
who died on Dec. 5, 2004, at the age of 89,
sometimes wrote that way. S. L.
Frisbie, IV)

Prologue:

How It All Began

By LOYAL FRISBIE

.Frisbie Publishing Co., Inc., of
Bartow, Florida, can trace its roots back
to Eldora, Hardin County, Iowa, in
1884.
The first Sayer Loyal Frisbie, a slen-
der, rangy youth, worked before and
after school hours in a local print shop,
laboring as a "printer's devil."
High school diploma in hand, at the
age of 18, he was the youngest of six
surviving children of Morris and
Arletter Frisbie, parents of one of the
few Democratic families in a heavily
Republican county.
Although greatly outnumbered
politically, Democrat leaders in Eldora
were determined to spread the
Democratic gospel in the presidential
election of 1884.
SEither as a move of desperation or a
stroke of genius, they hired Sayer
Frisbie as editor of their newspaper.
"I had mouse-colored hair and
looked older than I was," he told a
namesake grandson several decades
later. All of the family called him
"Sayer."
"I had to fight my way through
grammar school," he commented
much later, "because the kids called
me 'Sarah'."

Chapter I:

Hitting the Road

After the Eldora Democrat did its
part to help elect Grover Cleveland
over James G. Blaine, young Frisbie
left his hometown, but for the rest of
his long life, he was never far from his
chosen profession.


For more than 70 years, he was an
accomplished writer. As an editor in
Eldora, he wrote a column of brief,
often thoughtful, paragraphs under
the caption, "Vagrant Musings -
Glints from the Old Man's
Observatory." That column, under that
caption, was to appear in numerous
newspapers over the decades.
But he left the editing responsibili-
ties to go to the Western Frontier in
Texas, where he became the panhandle
correspondent of the Kansas City
Times. He became acquainted with,
and wrote about, the famous and infa-
mous characters of the times and
places.
In his old age, Sayer Frisbie spoke
very little about his colorful early
years. An exception: after a relaxing
supper with a grandson and grand-
daughter-in-law, in 1940, he remi-
nisced about episodes of his frontier
days, of which the most stirring was
this incident:
A family of four father, mother,
adult son and daughter was way-
laying travelers in the scantily popu-
lated desert areas. After taking the
traveler in for seeming hospitality of a
meal and a night's rest, the family
would rob and murder their guests,
and dispose of the bodies in the waste-
lands.
When word of these depredations
reached a population center, lawmen
recruited a posse and set out to deal
with the outlaws. In the group were a
few newspaper reporters, including
young Frisbie.
Having found and captured their
quarry, the posse wasted no time in
dispensing frontier justice. The old
folks were hanged. The younger two
were tied to the back of their horses,
and the steeds were whipped to gallop
into the desert, where death from heat
and thirst awaited the murderous
brother and sister.
On the way back, Frisbie managed
to "get lost" from the rest of the group,
then took a shortcut he knew to the
nearest telegraph station and wired his
story to his paper for a 24-hour scoop
on the rest of the reporters.
In the years that followed there
came ownership of a string of newspa-
pers: the West Plains (Kansas)
Democrat, the Sloan (Iowa) Star, and
Ida Grove (Iowa) Record Era, weeklies;
Biloxi (Mississippi) Daily Advertiser,
Crowley (Louisiana) Signal, and


Beaumont (Texas) Journal, dailies.

Chapter 2:

The Next Generation

Sayer Frisbie (he preferred using his
.initials, S. L.) married Emma Robison
in the mid-1880s, and on May 31, 1889,
their son (and only child, Sayer Lloyd)
was born.
There are two versions to account
for "Lloyd." One is that his mother
thought that was. his father's name.
The other is that the name was copied
erroneously into the official records.
(The second version seems the more
likely.)
Little Lloyd was put to work in
early childhood in one of his father's
newspapers, when he was smaller
than the broom he was pushing.
When he was given a "real print-
er's" job, spreading ink on the plate of
a hand-fed press, he had to stand on a
box, or sit on a tall stool, in order to
reach the ink plate.
In addition to his menial work at
the shop, Lloyd had an early opportu-
nity to witness his father's strict jour-
nalistic ethics.
One day, a local politician came to
the Frisbie residence and offered Sayer
a sum of money to support him in a
project on which he was working.
Years later, Lloyd related the incident
to one of his sons, and remarked, "Dad
called him everything but a gentle-
man."
That must have been an inspiring
outburst. Grandson Loyal never heard
his granddad swear. The closest he
came was one day when he was
accompanying the first Sayer L. on a
trip to the Bartow Printing Co. job
shop,, the elderly man burst out,
"THUNDER!" He had just realized
that he had forgotten'to bring a sheaf
of copy for The Citrus Industry maga-
zine.
Schooling and general print shop
work went hand in hand until Lloyd
graduated from high school. He
enrolled at the University of Indiana,
soon joined the college newspaper
staff, and became a charter'member of
"the first professional journalism fra-
ternity" (presumably Sigma Delta Chi,
now called the Society of Professional
Journalists).
Lloyd left college after his sopho-


more year to join his father in the
newspaper business, and was handed
the Sloan Star to run.
In 1911, Lloyd married his high
school sweetheart, Marguerite
Elizabeth ("Cricket") Bernard. Later
the two Frisbie families moved to
Biloxi, Miss., where Lloyd and his
father converted the Advertiser from a
weekly to a daily, and where Lloyd
and Cricket had their first son, born on
March 6, 1915.
They named him Sayer Loyal, for
his grandfather a tradition that has
extended through two more genera-
tions. He would be called "Loyal."
In 1918, the .two Frisbie families
moved to Florida. S.L. went first to
Arcadia, to become managing editor of
that town's newspaper. Lloyd moved
to Tampa to join the Tampa Morning
Tribune as an advertising salesman.
S(Sidelight Loyal can fix the 1918
date-by an incident when he and his
mother had lain down for an afternoon
nap. A lady next door was shouting
into her telephone. Cricket said, "She's
saying 'War has been declared! War
has been declared!' She means peace
has been declared.")
S.L. and Emma Frisbie bought a
home at 115 Fremont Avenue in
Tampa, and lived there for about 14
years.
In 1920, S. L. bought the Bartow
Printing Co. from Frank, Kay
.Anderson, and started two monthly
magazines, The Fish & Oyster
Reporter arid The Citrus Industry.
At the same time, J.G. Gallemore
bought from Anderson his newspaper,
the Courier-Informant (consolidated
from two earlier papers, The Courier
and The Informant) and started The
Polk County Record.
Lloyd and Cricket first rented a
house on Covadonga (now Bay toBay
Boulevard); later moved to Grenada
Street, in the Palma Ceia subdivision;
and in 1924 bought a just-finished
home at 3014 Chapin Avenue, where
their second son, Richard Ronald, was
born on Feb. 18, 1924.
The delivery took place with a doc-
tor in attendance, in the parents' bed-
room. The attendant noise woke Loyal,
in his adjoining sleeping porch, and he
came into the hall to see what was hap-
pening. Lloyd hastily pushed Loyal
back into his room with a quick "You
have a little brother" explanation.
S.L. and Emma Frisbie had been


928







August 28, 2006 75th Anniversary


regular churchgoers Presbyterian -
but Loyal and Richard were being
raised as atheists, due to the extreme
influence of an in-law who was a non-
believer. The story has been told that in
his young adulthood, he became con-
vinced that there is no God; and that
while walking alone one day he shout-
ed, "If there is a God, strike me dead
right now!" When nothing happened,
he became a spiritualist..
He convinced his wife and both
Cricket and Lloyd also to become spir-
itualists. Consequently, Lloyd and
Cricket's sons, Loyal and Richard,
were raised as atheists.
Because Cricket, a former school
teacher in Iowa, disapproved of
Florida's school system, she tutored
Loyal and Richard at home in Tampa
using the Montessori system. She
encouraged Loyal to read all the books
he could get his hands on.
She also was an ardent pacifist.
When a neighbor boy invited Loyal to
join the Boy Scouts, she vetoed the
offer because the "uniformed Scouts"
were a "preparation for the military."
(A few years later, Lloyd said to his
older son, "Don't ever let anyone get
too much influence with you.")

Chapter 3:

The Tradition

Continues

At the age of 9, Loyal felt the urge to
get into the newspaper business.
With a Corona portable typewriter
(he was a self-taught typist) Loyal cre-
ated a weekly newspaper:
Neighborhood News. On a half-fold
sheet of 8-and-a-half x 11-inch typing
paper, he produced four single-spaced
pages of happenings in the neighbor-
hood (Chapin Avenue and vicinity).
Typing was slow work, and his total
"press run" was four copies, which he
sold for a penny apiece to the neigh-
bors.
Two neighbor girls Letchell
Mitchell (Sue) and Frances
Winningham helped furnish news,
and Frances (a teenager) would draw a
pencil illustration for the front page.
The biggest news story reported in
the life of the Neighborhood News
was a head-on collision of two street
cars on the nearby Bayshore Boulevard
line. Several people were injured.
Having heard an adult say that the
streetcars had "telescoped," Loyal's
lead told of a "Telescoping wreck" -
and he couldn't understand why his
parents laughed at the reportage.
Before long, Lloyd bought for his
elder son several second-hand cases of
handset type, and a small hand-oper-
ated job press.
The weekly Neighborhood News
became the monthly "The Little
Magazine," which, in addition to news
items, contained a serial story, written


229


by a neighbor boy (whose name is lost
to the memory).

Chapter 4:

Boom To Bust

In the 1920s, at the height of the
Florida land boom, "Colonel" W.F.
Stovall sold the Tribune to a group of
Tampa businessmen. The Stovalls,
father and son, immediately started an
opposition morning daily, the Tampa
Telegraph. Lloyd Frisbie, who had
worked his way up to advertising
manager of the Tribune, went with the
Telegraph as vice-president and gener-
al manager.
For a year or so, Tampa had four
daily newspapers, two in the morning,
two in the afternoon. But the boom
broke, both upstart papers collapsed,
and Lloyd returned to the Tribune,
then owned by S.E. Thomason, as
advertising manager.
In 1929, a relative of Mrs. Thomason
died. Cricket, seeking to comfort her,
took Mrs. Thomason a book on spiritu-
alism. The incident so enraged
Thomason that he ordered his business
manager, J.S. Mims, to fire Lloyd
Frisbie.
Note the date 1929, the year of
the disastrous stock market crash and
start of the Great Depression.
Lloyd Frisbie sought to make a liv-
ing as an independent advertising
salesman.
Early in 1930, Lloyd moved to
Bartow with his sons to become man-
ager of his father's Bartow Printing
Co. Lloyd and the boys rented a one-
bedroom apartment in the popular
boarding house operated by "Miss
Hennie" Lightsey.
After the family was reunited in
Bartow, Lloyd and Cricket rented a
home recently built by "Uncle
Charley" Wilson, patriarch of a long-
prominent Polk County family, at 305
Carpenter Avenue.
When school opened in the Fall,
Richard was enrolled in elementary
school. Loyal divided his time work-
ing (without pay) as a printer's devil,
and playing shuffleboard with four 70-
plus men (three retired, one, the oper-
ator of a bicycle shop) and a retarded
older teenager.

Chapter 5:

The Democrat

Is Born

Late the next Summer, Lloyd
declared he was homesick for the
newspaper business, and promptly
founded, in conjunction with his
father, on Aug. 28, 1931, a free-circula-
tion weekly newspaper in competition
with the Gallemore-owned daily
newspaper, The Polk County Record.
Both Frisbie men were yellow-dog


Democrats they would vote the
party line if the Democrats ran a yel-
low dog for office-- which pre-des-
tined the paper's name to be The Polk
County Democrat.
-In defiance of economic logic, The
Democrat survived. Lloyd later
declared that he'd never start another
paper without first surveying business
possibilities in the town.
Bradley Scofield, manager of a gas
company office, was hired to be adver-
tising salesman.
Frances Boswell, Bartow's most
prominent local belle, was society edi-
tor for the first two weeks, until she
resigned to be married. Cricket then
was drafted (without pay) to become
society editor.
Loyal, in addition to printer's devil
duties, became The Democrat's unpaid
stamp .and international pen pal
columnist. In the early years of The
Democrat, Lloyd drew a salary when
there was money left after the staff and
bills were paid.
Richard was thrust into the newspa-
per business at the age of 12. In the
sixth grade he was appointed editor of
that grade's newspaper.
Forever an indelible highlight of
The Democrat's history occurred in the
Spring of 1933, when President
Franklin D. Roosevelt closed all the
banks in the country.
Cash on hand in the Bartow
Printing Company offices and plant
consisted of two rolls of dimes, which
had been paid for handbills printed to
advertise an exhibit in town of a
stuffed whale.
Lloyd called the entire staff to his
office, broke open the rolls of dimes,
and distributed them among the five
staff members. All staff members also
were given enough tickets for their
entire families to see the whale.

Chapter 6:

OffTo College

In 1933, Lloyd and Cricket decided
it was time for Loyal to go to college. A
possible complication Loyal did not
have a high school diploma.
The publishers of all the county's
non-daily newspapers had met in con-
ference, decided that everyone would
bid $1 an inch for publishing the coun-
ty's delinquent tax list, which the
county commission would assign. For
the upcoming year, The Democrat
would get the job, and Loyal would be
sent to Rollins College in Winter Park,
a liberal institution which would not
insist on such formalities as a high
school diploma.
That plan fell apart when the pub-
lisher of the Frostproof News broke
ranks and bid 29 cents an inch to pub-
lish the tax list. (Bad choice, as it
turned out. The News went bankrupt
producing that big job at that small
price.) Close at hand was Southern


College in Lakeland, which its presi-
dent, Dr. Ludd M. Spivey, was keeping
alive by various financial maneuvers.
Lloyd and Dr. Spivey struck a deal
- Loyal would be accepted as a full-
time student, tuition, lodging and food
paid, and Bartow Printing Co. would
provide all of the college's printing for
those four years no cash changing
hands. As a formality, Loyal would
prove his eligibility by passing an,
entrance examination.
He was in his third year before the
college, by that time known as Florida
Southern College, got around to pro-
viding the exam, Primarily, it was a
vocabulary test-- Loyal's best subject.
Taking the same exam in the same
room, a freshman student was com-
plaining about how tough it was. But
he passed and several years later was
president of a small college in Georgia.
Loyal earned an A.B. degree, magna
cum laude, majoring .in Spanish. He
had served as editor of The Southern,
the student newspaper, for two-and-a-
half years.

Chapter 7:

Love at First Sight

On Loyal's first day on the campus,
he visited the office of Harris G. Sims,
the college secretary and journalism
instructor. Also in the office was Mr.
Sims' secretary, a junior student
named Louise Kelley. It was a fortu-
itous meeting. They had a few dates,
fell in love, became engaged, and were
wed on June 30, 1937, one month after
Loyal's graduation. Louise had earned
her B.S. degree two years earlier, and
had joined the Summerlin Institute
(high school) faculty in Bartow.
Their union, that lasted 52 years,
produced a son on Jan. 15, 1941,
named Sayer Loyal, and called by his
initials, S.L., with the addition of a
Roman numeral, IV, because there
were three-other generations of S.L.s
living in Bartow at that time.
After graduation, Loyal entered the
family business as managing editor
(and part-time ad salesman) of The
Democrat.

Chapter 8:

The War Years

When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor
on Dec. 7,1941, Richard was a senior at
Bartow High School. At the age of 17,
he enlisted in the Army Air Corps,
then attended Emory University for
one year before being called up.
His assignment, after earning his
lieutenant's bars, was as pilot and
commander of a search-and-rescue
plane, stationed in British Guiana.
At the conclusion of his enlistment,
he was returned to Palm Beach for his

(Continued on Page 30)

honorable discharge.
Loyal was drafted into the Army in
March, 1944; took basic training at Fort
McClellan, Ala.; was assigned to L
Company, 290th Regiment, 75th
infantry Division, for additional train-
ing. He went overseas with the 75th in
October, and underwent more training
near Llantwit Major, Wales, and
Porchcawl, Wales.
When the 75th went to France, he
moved by truck and shoe leather into
Belgitim, and went into action near
Soy, Belgium, in the Battle of the Bulge
on Christmas Eve.
Meantime, Louise and S.L. had
moved in with Loyal's parents a
two-year stint that was rough on all
four persons, but an unavoidable
wartime period that all four survived
as best they could.
Loyal was one of numerous GIs,
casualties of bullets or weather, trans-
ported first to Liege, for temporary
lodging in a huge former power
house, then to an Army hospital at
Bournemouth, England, to recover
from their ailments; in Loyal's case,
frost-bitten feet.
Back in the English hospital Loyal
was able to resume his "Off My Chest"
newspaper column, written as letters
to his wife. Since they dealt with past
happenings or non-critical current per-
sonal matters, they were not of interest
to Army censors but were able to
keep the family up-to-date on their
soldier's situation.
He continued writing while in the
hospital, and subsequently in rehabili-
tation camp, with a trainload of reha-
bilitated GI's being shuffled back to
their outfits, then on occupation duty
at Hemer, Germany, and ultimately at
Camp Philadelphia, preparing other
soldiers to return to the States, and
finally to.Lucky Strike (one of the "cig-
arette camps") for transhipment home.
In post-war Germany, he served
with other Army retreads while accu-
mulating sufficient service points to be
returned by ship to the States.
Returning to the U.S. for honorable
discharge at Camp Blanding, Fla., in
February, 1946, Loyal resumed duty as
The Democrat's managing editor.
Louise had taken over his duties as
Democrat reporter and correspondent
for the Tampa Tribune, Associated
Press and United Press. She helped
found a day care center to look after
children whose fathers were in service,
and whose mothers, consequently, had
to work.
Shortly after regaining civilian sta-
tus, Richard Frisbie and Mamie Nelle
Odom of Covington, Ga., were inar-
ried in Nei Orleans in December
1945.
And -i~sbie Publishing Co., Inc.,
gained ,another familyy employee and
officer when Richard joined the staff of
The Democrat as advertising manager.


Richard and Mamie Nelle's wed-
ding was blessed with"five children-
Richard- Jr. (Rick), Henry., (Hank),
Mariann, and twins: Lisa and Mark.
The outbreak of war.also caused
changes at the, Polk County Record.
Roy T. Gallemore was a career Navy
officer, but came home to run the busi-
ness when his father, J.G. Gallemore,
died. When war clouds gathered, Roy
Gallemore returned to the Navy, leav-
ing his wife, Virginia Holland
Gallemore, in charge of the newspa-
per.
In 1940, the Polk County Record
had changed publication from daily to
twice-weekly. In the early 1940s, the
post office department applied pres-
sure to The Democrat either to get paid
circulation of be deprived of its second
class mailing privilege vital .to the
paper's. eligibility to print legal (public
notice) advertising, and Democrat
staffers hastened to put on a subscrip-
tion drive, successfully.

Chapter 9:

Purchase of

The Record

After, the end of World War II,
Commander Roy Gallemore chose to
stay in military service, and his wife
offered to sell the Record to the
Frisbies.
A $10,000 price was agreed on.
Lloyd borrowed the money on.his sig-
nature from friends in Tampa; and
Frisbie Publishing Co.,. Inc., was
formed, with Sayer as president, Lloyd
as vice-president, Loyal as secretary,
and Richard as treasurer.
On Nov. 1, 1946, the two Bartow
papers were consolidated as a semi-
weekly under The Democrat's name,
with Loyal as editor. The entire news-
paper operation was moved, from its
shared quarters with Bartow Printing,
Co. at 550 North Broadway, to tljie
Record Building at Central Avenue
and Summerlin Street.
Publication days were Tuesday and
Friday, standard for most twice-a-
week newspapers in Florida, with
Friday as the day for most grocery
advertising, because Friday night and
Saturday were housewives' general
days-of-choice for shopping.
Grocers, seeking to expand shop-
ping times, began offering special
prices dn Thursday. Newspapers, in
self-defense, changed their semi-week-
ly publication days to Monday and
Thursday.

On their return from military serv-
ice, Loyal and Richard both became
active in the First Methodist Church,
both in attendance and in holding
church offices. In the early 1950s,
while Loyal was official board chair-
man, the minister Rev. Jesse E. Waller
urged that a second Methodist church


be organized in Bartow.
Board members accepted the urg-
ing, and in 1955 selected. a geographi-
cal line for .allotting membership.
Richard and Mamie Nelle, living south
of the line that defined new church
area, helped. establish Asbury
Methodist Church, and quickly
became leaders in that congregation.

At.the time of the consolidation and
for ., some time afterward,. The
Democrat was delivered to subscribers
by boys on bicycles. Barely out of ele-
mentary school, S.L. was appointed
foreman of the carriers. ,
At the age of 14, he. attended the
Boy Scout Jamboree in Canada, and
sent dispatches to the Tampa Morning
Tribune.
After graduating in 1958 at the age
of 17 from Summerlin Institute, S.L.,
IV, enrolled at Florida State University
in Tallahassee. During his freshman
year he worked as a student assistant
in the FSU news bureau. During his
other three years at FSU, he worked at
The Tallahassee Democrat, sharpening
his skills at news gathering and writ-
ing, as well as earning a large part of
his college expenses.
At FSU, he met Mary Karle
Grossenbacher, a student from
.Apopka, when she was a proofreader
for the Flambeau, the FSU student
newspaper, which was printed at The
Tallahassee Democrat. Love soon
resulted, and they were married on
June 22, 1963.
S.L. had enrolled in ROTC at FSU,
and on graduation received his com-
mission as a second lieutenant in the
Army.
In 1964, after an obligatory two
years of active Army service, S.L.
brought his wife back to Bartow, and
joined The Democrat staff as manag-
ing editor. :He joined the Florida
National Guard, and retired 30 years
later with the rank of colonel.

Chapter io:

A Scary Day

On Tuesday, Nov. 16, 1954, fire
broke out in the Cadillac agency
adjoining the offices of The Democrat,
and completely destroyed that build-
ing and its contents. Members of the
Bartow Lions Club, meeting in the
Masonic Temple two blocks away,
learned of the roaring flames, and
dashed to the newspaper office to help
move furnishings and files from the
news and advertising areas.
The Record Building was not fire-
damaged, but water from the fire
hoses flooded the pressroom. Type for
the day's edition some in galleys,
some already locked in page forms -
was loaded into staff vehicles and
taken to Lake Wales, where The Lake
Wales News, owned by the Brice fami-
ly, made their facilities available to


print The Democrat's issue, -and
enabled the staff to deliver papers to-
the subscribers not long after dark.
.S.L. Frisbie, I,. died in his sleep at the
age of 91 in 1957. Lloyd became presi-
dent of Frisbie Publishing; Loyal, vice-
president; Richard secretary-treasurer.

Chapter II:

A New Home

On Sept. 19, 1964, The, Democrat
moved its operations again, starting at
well before dawn on a Saturday morn-
ing, to a new home in a building
recently purchased, at 190 South
Florida Avenue, a two-block move
accomplished by hand,.auto, truck and
forklift. The Democrat, for the first
time, now had a permanent home.
Only the press was not moved. A
16-page capacity Goss tubular press
had been bought from the Winter
Haven News-Chief and installed in the
new building. (That press at one time
was half of the press on which the
Orlando Sentinel was printed.)
On the exciting day when the press
erector first started the newly-installed
press, it ran backward. The wiring had
been incorrectly hooked up, and cor-
recting the error was a simple task.
Ultimately, the eight-page flat-bed
press which had served The Record
and The Democrat for many years was
sold to a newspaper in Central
America, which sent a crew to Bartow
to take the press apart and transport it
to its new home.
Louise, who had been happy to
"retire" from her arduous duties in
1946, was eager to get back into har-
ness after several months, and rejoined
The Democrat staff, first as court
house reporter, and soon afterward as
copy editor, a position she filled until
1980, when she shifted her main atten-
tion to writing books illustrated his-
tories: "Peace River Pioneers,"
"Yesterday's Polk County," and
"Florida's Fabled Inns." She and Loyal
formed Imperial Publishing Co. to
handle the book business.
Cricket Frisbie, who became the
paper's unpaid society editor in 1931,
filled that assignment (with a salary,
after the first year or so) for 25 years.
In 1962, Lloyd, a cigar smoker for
his entire adult life, became ill with
throat cancer. Richard moved his chief
attention to the Bartow Printing
Company, and often would sit by his
father's sick bed, learning how to fig-
ure job printing prices.
After Lloyd died in January, 1964,
Richard took over Bartow Printing
Co., and Loyal became editor and pub-
lisher of The Democrat. A dozen or so
years after S.L. joined the staff as man-
aging editor, he became at Richard's
suggestion general manager of The
Democrat.
In 1968, S.L.'s wife, Mary, started
working at The Democrat on a part-

time basis, as Wednesday night proof-
reader. With her husband attending
Florida National Guard drills on
Wednesday night, her assistance
helped him get home earlier.
From that small but important task,
her duties expanded steadily, and
today she is a director of Frisbie
Publishing Co., Inc., and The Lake
Wales News, Inc., and is vice-president
and treasurer of both corporations. In
addition to her primary responsibili-
ties of bookkeeping and accounting,
she is the resident expert on computer
trouble-shooting.

Chapter 12:
Growing
The Business.
In 1969, seeking a way to substan-
tially increase The Democrat's circula-
tion, the company established a Fort
Meade edition. Fort Meade was select-
ed because its residents, when leaving
'town to shop, came to or through -
Bartow. It was a logical next step in
building the company.
Two years later, that edition became
The Fort Meade Leader, with the pur-


chase of the name of the community's
then-defunct weekly newspaper.
In preparation for The Democrat's
entry into Fort Meade, Louise
researched and wrote several feature
articles about Fort Meade to be pub-
lished in The Democrat's Fort Meade
edition (now The Fort Meade Leader).
One day, she hesitantly suggested to
Loyal that she might write a regular
historical column for The Democrat.
Loyal enthusiastically agreed, and
Louise's "Pioneers" column was born.
It quickly became a favorite of readers
in both Bartow and Fort Meade.
In November 1995, the company
established a monthly niche publica-
tion, Polk County Times, serving
employees of Polk County govern-
ment and the school board. Polk
County Times was established to give
merchants a way to reach the thou-
sands of government employees who
work in Bartow but live in other com-
munities, as well as government
employees in offices throughout the
county.
On March 31,-1998, the company
bought The Lake Wales News.
The long-time publisher, Owen B.
Brice, had suffered a stroke, and his
daughters asked The Democrat (which


had printed The News for about 20
years) to help manage the newspaper
"until Mother decides what to do with
it." She decided to sell the paper, and
told her children that she wanted the
sale to be to the Frisbie family, whose
friendship with the Brices spanned
four generations.

Epilogue:
Life After
Newspapering
S.L. and Mary had three children -
Margaret Louise (Peggy) in 1965;
Carolyn Elizabeth in 1970; Sayer Loyal
(Loyal V). in 1976. Peggy graduated

ing for several years in a lay ministry
position at First Lutheran Church of
