Drug Trading Ends Deputies' Careers


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor


Drugs and sex are elements of
many crimes, but this time
they're accusations that landed
one Polk County Sheriff's Office
detention deputy in trouble her-
self.
After an investigation into
allegations that she offered
money and sex for prescription
painkillers, Lena J. Reeves, 37,
was arrested Thursday on a third
degree felony charge of conspiracy
for unlawful compensation involv-
ing official behavior. The charges
covered a 10-year period begin-
ning Oct. 18, 1996.
She was booked in to the Polk
County jail, and was released
after posting bond ol $1,000.
Assigned to supervise trustee
inmates at the Central County
Jail, Reeves was hired on Sept.
17, 1990.
Reeves was one of 11 people
investigated by PCSO Detectives
Consuelo Galleogos-Bias and
Larry Ashley. PCSO worked w-itlh
the State Attorney's Office to
investigate the allegations which
originated with an anonymous
phone call.
Also investigated were
Detention Deputy Stacy
Garrison, 42; Detention Deputy


-Belinda Yarbrough. 35: secretary
Jackie Lanfair, 42; Sgt. Randy
Kremann, 45: Sgt. Randy Bryant,
49, Lt. Rickey Gri'ce. 49: Major
Dale Tray,' 54, head of the jail
security division: Detention
Deputy Rocky Francisco, 45; ex-
Deputy Malcolm Kneale, 38; and
ex-Capt. Mark DeDomo, 44.
The anonymous caller said
Reeves was addicted to prescrip-
tion drugs, and had gotten other
detention enlployees to fill pre-
scriptions and sell the drugs to
her, and that she was in ,a rela-
tionship with someone in her
chain of command at the Central
County Jail in Bartow.
"Often it appears as if Reeves
receives favoritism from their
supervisors, due to her personal
relationship with them." one
detention deputy told detectives
He was one of four detention
deputies not involved in the
alleged incidents whose inter-
views are part of the 14-page nar-
rati e of the investigation.
Reeves is living with Bryant,
v.ho also is sometimes in the-ir
chain of command, one deputy
said. Because of her persoriall
relationships with her immediate
supervisors, she is considered
untouchablel" and is called the
"puppet master," the deputy told
investigators.
Two male deputi-es have tried


to file complaints against Reeves
for sexual and hostile work
harassment, but the complaints
weren't investigated and they
were transferred, one deputy
said.
Witnesses told investigators
that Reeves has mood swings, dis-
plays bizarre behavior and some-
times "appears to be in a drug-
induced state v.-hile on duty.
R-e'.evs will be polite and talka-
tive, acting normal, but in the
next minute she is angry, saying
she has a headache and in need of
prescription pill'."
Her co-workers al,:, reported
that she'' Iten said inappropriate
thir'ns about her personal rela-
tionship..'
Another deputy, said Reev'.-
had offered d sex in exchange for
his prescription painkillers.'In a
nsmilar incident four years ago, a
detention depiut-- told investiga-
tors that Retev'.e began "'bugging
him to death" about wanting his
pain rnmdi:at i.n !i from an upcom-
ing t.ith extraction He said
'Reees ff ered to buy it from him,
hut when he tturni-d her dov.n. she
offered e.-: She tried to, follow
him and i :aled hi- cell ph'o-n, -'. -.
eral time?-
He :aid it ',\a a. ppare'rnl .ih-
"had a serious addictiin:r pro.h-
len,." but didn't kn,'.v if --h- had
be?en or .r 'a- -still guing to dlru'


rehab. He said he didn't report
the incident to her supervisors,
"because he felt they were encour-
aging and enabling her behavior."
Another deputy told detectives
he "feared for his career and
future at,the Sheriffs Office"
when he heard that Reeves
accused him of saying inappropri-
ate things. That w.as when he told
a supervisor that she had made
inappropriate sexual comments to
him.
Investigators found that
Reeves was seeing doctors for her
headaches and had prescriptions
for narcotic painkillers.
Jackie Lanfair told detectives
that Reeves would sometimes tell
her she had a headache and ask if
Lanfair had anything she could
take. Lanfair said she gave
Reeves some \'ii,,din. up to 10 to
15 pills at a time, and that Reeves
had -iven her cash twice. When
inr -esti ator- asked if Reeves had
ever written her a check, Lanfair
said she "might have," but she
cul don't recall if it, was for "pills :
whatever."
She thoug-ht the last time she
had pr-'-il-'-d \j Vi.-din to Reete-e
was last fall.
Detention Deput Stacy
G rarri--onr told dete':t.ies that she
and Reci..-- lbotlh have migraine
h.-adaches and take the same
nidi.'Iatinii SIhe sa;J that. she had
-...metimes given Reeves


hydrocodone when Reeves ran out
of her medication. She denied tak-
ing any money for the pills or giv-
ing Reeves more than one to three
pills at a time because she "could
not spare that many."
Garrison told detectives. "I
know we were wrong to share our
prescriptions and it's against the
law. I was trying to help a friend
out to get through the day."
Sgt. Randy Kremann told
detectives that while he had been
involved in a brief sexual rela-
tionship with Reeves in the past.
they decided to remain "just
friends" and were roommates off
and on for the next seven years.
He said he was not in Reeves'cur-
rent chain of command.
Kremann said while they lived
together. he was aware of her
addiction to prescription medica-
tion and.that she went to rehab.
However, he continued to provid-
ed Fiorinal with codeine, because
"She's very convincing when she
is hurting. . She didn't take no
for an answer very easily."
He said he thought the last
time he gave her medication was
two or three years ago.
Lt. Rickey Grice said he and
his wife have gone out socially
.ith Reeves and Sgt. Randy
Bryant, and that he and Reeves
are "buddies." Grice said that
Major Dale Tray told him about
Reeves' addiction some four years


ago, and that Tray said after
rehab, Reeves would be placed
back at Central County Jail from
the boot camp. Grice said Tray
asked him to .keep an eye on
Reeves.
Grice said Reeves called him in
March or April of 2005'and told
him she was really hurting. She
said she had left her \icodin at.
home and wanted some of the
medication he received after a
vehicle accident. He said he gave
her two Vicodin to get her
through the day, because he knew
she had a prescription.

Hearing, Final Vote Set


Tonight on E.F. Griffin


Road Development


A TRICK GONE WRONG? Actually,
Halloween tricks came early for Bartow High
School Band Director Jon Eckman, whose house
was toilet-papered by celebrating band students
after they earned straight superiors at the annual
marching band festival. They connected their
accomplishment with the school's "100 Percent
Achievement" campaign by bringing some of the
school's promotional "100" signs. The band's show
was based on both the old "Willy Wonka and the
Chocolate Factory" and new "Charlie and the


Chocolate Factory" movies. The songs played were
"Willy Wonka," "August .is GIloip." 'Pure
Imagination," and "Golden Ticket Tag.' While the,
band had earned an overall superior rating last
year. this was the first year they received straight
superiors in all categories since the '02-'03 school
year. The band also celebrated Halloween with
everyone else by marching in the annual Crickette
Club Parade. iStafl photo above, photo below

The fate of one of Bartow's
largest and most controversial
proposed residential develop-
ments i-. cheduil-d to be decided
by the city commission tonight.
Postponed from three weeks
ago, a public hearing will be held
tonight on approval of "planned
development" zoning on a 272-
acre site on E.F. Griffin Road for.
construction of Wind Meadows
South.
The plan submitted by the
developer, Highland Cassidy,
seeks approval to build 570 single
family homes and 200 townhouse
units on the property.
The plan calls for building lots
as narrow as 60 feet, 10 feet nar-
rower than is allowed in the city's
highest density zone for single
family homes.
The development was rejected
by the city commission earlier
this year, and the developer sued
the city. The city settled the suit
by agreeing to consider a modified
application from Highland
Cassidy.
The new plan reduces the total
number of dwellings from 900 to
870.
Residents of E.F. Griffin Road
have led a campaign of opposition
to the development, saying it is
incompatible with an- area which
traditionally has had homes on
lots of one to five acres each.
Yellow and black signs urging
Bartowans to turn out for
tonight's hearing have taken
their place in many yards along-
side political yard signs. Terry


Frost said most of the signs were
stolen on Saturday night.
Our Town Bartowv, an organiza-
tion created to monitor standards
of future growth development,
sent a letter to its, members
encouraging them to attend
tonight's hearing.
On a related issue, the com-
mission will consider on first
reading an ordinance requiring
the commission's approval of
development agreements for
extension of water and sewer
lines to new developments.
Approval of an agreement for
water and sewer service by the
city staff has been cited by sup-
porters of 'ie Wind Meadows
South development as one reason
for approval of the application.
The commission will hold a
work session at 5:30 this after-
noon at city hall, and will recon-
vene for its regular business
meeting at 6:30.

The Wind Meadows South
ordinance will be considered on
second (final) reading, and a pub-
lic hearing is required prior to
final passage of any ordinance.
Other items on the agenda:
A presentation on a "fair
share program" by the Polk
County Transportation Planning
Organization, followed by
approval of a memorandum of
understanding and passage of an
ordinance to impleinent it.
Discussion of appointments
to the building aid housing board
of appeals, the citizens advisory
committee, the code enforcement


board, and the board of trustees
of the police officers pension fund.
Designation of the city's vot-
ing delegate to the National
League of Cities.
Recognition of city mrnmploy-
ees for their participation in the
2006 Heart Walk of the American
Heart Assn.
Amendments to the 2005-06
and 2006-07 city budgets.
Approval of an inter-agency
cooperation agreement between
the Bartow Police Dept. and the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office.
Approval of a contract with
Health Concepts LLC for an
employee assistance program for
city employees.
Authorization to refinance a
city bond issue.
First reading of ordinances
to:
(1) Rezone a parcel of land at
490 South U.S. Highway 17 from
R-2 (duplexes) to C-3 (highway
commercial).
(2) Annex a parcel of 49 acres
of land east of Bartow owned by
Natural Sun Systems, Inc., locat-
ed 'on on 80 Foot Road south of
State Road 60.
Second reading and a public
hearing on an ordinance to
approved a "planned develop-
ment" subdivision on 72.5 acres of
land in Connersville. The 172-
home development would be
served by septic tanks because
the city does not have sanitary
sewer service to the area.

Green Remodeling Takes Homeowners By Storm


It's hip to be green. And re-
modeling a home green is easier
than you think.
The National Association of
the Remodeling Industry (NARI)
just launched its new Green Re-
modeling educational program,
offering remodeling contractors
across the country a unique op-
portunity to incorporate cost-
saving and earth-sustaining
green concepts into their clients'
homes.
NARI's approach to teaching
Green Remodeling is an all-en-
compassing approach that em-
phasizes making a home
healthy, comfortable, and effi-
cient.
Consideration is given to in-
door air quality, energy conser-
vation, resource conservation, re-
duced material waste, and the
use of products that are better
for the environment (and for peo-
ple).
According to the Sustainable
Building Industry Council
(SBIC), housing alone consumes
20 percent of America's energy.
Homeowners who choose to
remodel green can lower their
energy consumption by 30-50
percent.
It's widely agreed that forests
produce 40 percent of Earth's
oxygen, and that building sup-
plies use 25 percent of its forests.
Remodeling green by incorporat-
ing recycled materials or sus-
tainable species will help home-
owners to tread more lightly on
Earth's natural resources.
Green remodeling is becoming
more popular as homeowners
consider health issues, skyrock-
eting energy costs and Earth's
natural resources.
More than 15 million Ameri-
cans are estimated to have
asthma, including one-in-13
school-age children, and more
than 28 million Americans suffer
from hay fever and other aller-
gies, all of which are aggravated
by poor indoor air quality.
NARI President Everett Col-


'lier said, "Remodeling Green of-
fers every homeowner the oppor-
tunity to reduce home energy de-
mands, lessen home mainte-
nance costs, and increase com-
fort. Remodelers are increasingly
exploring green remodeling.prin-
ciples for their overall value for
their clients and for the sake of
the environment."
The new Green Program at
NARI helps remodelers do just
that.
"If a remodeling contractor
seeks to develop knowledge and
skill in the area of green remod-
eling," says the Chairman of the
Green Education Sub-Committee
Chris Donatelli, "the NARI
Green program will help realize
those goals. This program thor-
oughly educates the contractor
who desires to focus on environ-
mentally friendly remodels."
Facets of green
remodeling
The average home today util-
izes systems for heating, ventila-
tion, and air conditioning, and
most homes are not built as effi-
ciently as they could be, all of
which results in high energy con-
sumption.
The U.S. Department of En-
ergy believes if current buildings
were green-improved, they
would use $20 billion less energy
per year.
Green remodeling puts a
strong emphasis on making
homes as efficient as possible
with modifications like energy
efficient appliances and thermo-
stats that can be programmed at
different temperatures for differ-
ent times of the day.
Indoor air quality
There are many sources that
contribute to the air quality in-
side a home.
They include pollutants
brought in from the outside,
toxic chemicals existing inside
the home, and the activities of
the occupants that create pollut-
ants.


Major contributors are to-
bacco smoke, smoke from the
burning of wood, coal, kerosene
or other such substances, toxic
fumes from sealants or chemi-
cals from cleaning products, lead
paint, asbestos from insulation,
damp carpets or fabrics, and cer-
tain pressed-wood furniture
products that release chemicals,
into the air.
Green remodeling seeks to
remedy these problems with
things like better ventilation sys-
tems and using wood, paint, and
sealants that are nontoxic.

Reduced material waste
and resource conservation
When remodeling a' home,
there" is often a large amount of
construction waste.
This amounts'to 136 million
tons of waste annually, accord-
ing to the EPA, which in turn
makes up 20 percent of the
waste in landfills.
Green remodeling focuses on
reducing this waste during re-
modeling and reusing materials
whenever possible, as 85 to 90
percent of materials thrown out
can be recycled,
SUsing local materials, build-
ing with engineered lumber, and
using recycling companies to re-
move waste are all ways this can
be achieved during remodeling.
Environmentally
safe products
Many products and practices
used in the remodel of a home
have negative effects on the en-
vironment. From chemicals and
materials that pollute the air to
the disturbing of the surround-
ing landscape, a myriad of ac-
tions taken can cause harin.
With green, care is given to
minimizing or eliminating prod-
ucts that could cause harm to
the environment or the occu-
pants during remodeling or af-
ter.


Fall is in the air.a nd soon
Thanksgiving and Christmas
will see families :gathered
around dinner tables piled high
with turkeys, ham, rmashedpota-
toes, green'beans, and pumpkin
pies.
But for many families, the
holidays are no picnic. That's
why the Bartow Church Service
Center is conducting its 2006
Holiday Food Drive. ;: '
Food. collected during this
event helps provide holiday food
baskets to families in the com-
munity. Last year's drive saw
the people of Bartow provide
more than 15,768 pounds of food,
giving the needy an estimated


6.307 meals.
This year's drive hopes to im-
prove on that remarkable
achievement. Dixie Shivler, ex-
ecutive director of/the Bartow
Church Service Center, said.
Donations of non-perishable
items and canned goods can be
brought to the center at 290 East
Church Street, Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.rm.
Individuals or organizations
donating food this season should
bring the items to the center at
least a.week before the holidays,'
if possible, Mrs. Shivler said.
For further information, call
Mrs. Shivler.or Wilma Bearring-
ton at 533-5822.'

BARTOW HIGH SCHOOL LEADERSHIP They also answered various questions the fifth
students Jillian Ehrhart, Lindsey Griner, and graders had about high school and the pressures
Melissa Rushing visited Bartow Elementary involved. After a short discussion, the girls asked
Academy and Stephens Elementary in conjund- the students to sign "Just Say No!" pledges as. a
tion with Red Ribbon week. The three spoke to promise to themselves to stay drug free in their
fifth graders about their encounters with drugs future. (Photo provided)
and alcohol and how they felt when they said no.


Deteition Deputy Charged


(Continued from Page 1)
"I had no reason to doubt that
she did leave them at home,
because it was. so early, it was
whether allow .her to go home
and get thenmor let her take two
of mine and pay me back and let
her stay at work."
He said this happened three
times over the next eight months.
When Reeves didn't pay him
back the third time, he refused to
loan her anymore.
Grice also said Reeves asked
him to go to a doctor and get pre-
scription narcotics for her, but he
refused. He also said he was
aware that Reeves had offered
other male employees sex. When
detectives asked if he thought
those comments were appropri-
ate in the work place, he said
"That's just Lena."
He denied rumors that Reeves
receives special treatment and is.
"untouchable."
Major Dale Tray was aware of
Reeves' addiction to Staydol
nasal spray, and that she took.
several prescription pills, "but
thought her addiction was under
control," he told detectives. '
He also said that about 10
years he had a migraine and
Reeves kept insisting that she
take a pill.
"I finally got tired of listening
to her and took it ... and spit it
inr the sink and drank my glass of
water, 'caused'm scared of pills,"'
he said. The incident happened
at his home, he said. Tray denied
providing any prescription nar-
cotics to Reeves.
Detention Deputy Belinda
Yarbrough also told investigators
that she had given Reeves
Vicodin last year and about a
month ago. Reeves told
Yarbrough that Sgt. Bryant had
made arrangements for
Yarbrough to go home and get
some of her Vicodin for Reeves.
Yarbrough denied selling, buying
or exchanging any other pre-
scription pills with Reeves.
Bryant admitted being in an
"on and off' relationship with


Reeves. He said she currently
lives with him and was some-
times under his direct chain of
command.,
He said he was aware of her
addiction, "but felt powerless."
During an interview, at the
office of her Bartow attorney,
Mark Taylor, Reeves said she
became addicted to Staydol in
1991, and her doctor switched
her to prescription pills, which he
monitored. When she began run-
ning out of her pills, she tried
getting prescriptions from other
people. She said that Kremann
filled prescriptions for her, but
she denied exchanging sex for the
medication.
Reeves also said that Lanfair
sold her prescription narcotics
several times. And she said that
Grice had given her pills, but
denied any exchange of money or
sex, or any sexual relationship
with Grice. Reeves also said
Garrison had refused to take
money for the pills, and that she
had not paid Yarbrough for med-
ication.
She said that she and Tray
had been friends for several
years, and that because of a brief
sexual relationship, he "could do
no disciplinary action against'
me."
She was proud of convincing
Tray to take a Xanax pill from
her because he was such a
"straight lace guy."
Reeves also said she
exchanged Xanax and Darvocet
with ex-Capt. Mark DeComo,
and Xanax and Ambien with ex-
Deputy Malcom Kneale.
Sheriff's Office investigators
submitted their report to the
State Attorney's Office on Oct.
26. Assistant State Attorney
Brad Copley notified PCSO that
Reeves would be charged, but
that the State Attorney's Office
declined to prosecute the others.
"While there is probable cause
to believe they'each committed at.
least one felony involving drug
abuse, conspiracy, solicitation,
and or official misconduct among
others, the necessary proof at


jury trial is 'beyond a reasonable
doubt,' which is a different and
higher standard than probable
cause," Copley wrote. "I must fol-
low this higher standard in order
to prosecute, and because this
additional proof is not present
my office respectfully declines to
prosecute these individuals."
" Copley also said he found- no
probable cause to believe Tray
and Francisco committed crimes.
However, Tray, a 26-year PCSO
employee, who was scheduled to
retire Dec. 1, moved his retii-e-
ment date to Nov. 17.
"Too many situations have
occurred while I was in command
that I was not aware of but
should have been," Tray wrote in
a letter to Sheriff Grady Judd.
"As a Division Commander, it
was my responsibility to ensure
that the people under my com-
mand were acting properly. I.
failed to do this. Although I was
not involved in their actions, it
was my responsibility to detect or
prevent them: Failure to, do so
indicates to me that my time is
up.
"It has been an honor to serve
with the men and women of the
Polk County Sheriff's Office. I
have never served with better."
Also retiring are Garrison,
hired in 1990; Yarbrough, hired
in 2000; Lanfair, hired in 1987;
Kremann, hired in 1980; Grice,
hired in 1981; Kneale, hired in
1995; and DeComo, hired in
1981. DeComo was arrested
Sept. 8 on accusations of stealing
ammunition from PCSO, and on
Oct. 23 for possession of a short-
barrel rifle.
Bryant, hired in 1987, was
suspended while an administra-
tive investigation is conducted.
N,o action has been taken
regarding Detention Deputy
Francisco.
Nothing. in the investigation
indicated that security at any jail
facility was compromised or that
any inmates were involved,
PCSO spokesman Carrie
Rodgers said.

4 The Polk County Democrat November 6, 2006


Editorial


As a general rule, when a consumer
makes a purchase and it grows more
rapidly in value than the rate of inflation,
that's good news.
That is the basic concept behind invest-
ing in the stock market.
But when that increase in value occurs in
homes or other real estate, the news can be
bad until and unless the owner sells his
property. For unlike the increase, in the
value of other investments, the increase in
real estate, taxes triggers an annual, and
often dramatic, increase in taxes.
Faced with growing property appraisals
that threatened to tax many Floridians out
of their own homes, the state's voters
passed an amendment to the Florida
Constitution several years ago that limits
increases in appraisals on their homes to
three percent per year.
The "Save Our Homes" amendment was
a sound approach to tax relief, but it has its
limitations.
It applies only to homes in which home-
owners presently live, and is not transfer-
able when a new home is purchased.
And it applies only to homestead prop-
erty homes that are lived in by their
owners not to rental homes, apartments,
or other commercial property.
One popular idea making the political
circuit is to make the three-percent lock-in
portable from one home to another. That
would be a help, but again only to people
who already own their homes. It would do
nothing for first-time home buyers, new
arrivals in the state, or non-homestead
property.
Pleading the case of commercial proper-
ty owners is not a popular political cause,
but small businesses in particular operate
on a profit margin that can be destroyed
by sky-rocketing real estate taxes.
At the heart of the problem is the rapid
rise in real estate values, increases unrelat-
ed to the price paid by the owners.
A piece of property that was worth, say,
$50,000 when it was purchased a few years
ago may be worth .five or 10 times that
much today. That is a reflection of the real
estate market, and has no correlation to
the income that it produces, or the ability
of the owner to pay a five-fold or ten-fold
increase in taxes.
When the property is sold, the owner
will recognize the increase in value, but in


the meantime, he is saddled with a tax bill
that increases at a rate many times the
increase in his own income.
The solution, we suggest, could be fash-
ioned after the Save Our Homes amend-
ment. It could work something like this:
Establish a base year, perhaps 2000,
before the current land price boom reached
its zenith.
Using property valuations in that base
year, allow an annual increase in taxable
valuation at a given ceiling perhaps five
percent per year or the increase in the
Consumer Price Index, whichever were
greater.
Roll back property valuations to the base
year, and recompute today's.tax roll values
on that multiplier, which would be-30 per-
cent in six years, using our example.
Government would still enjoy a healthy
increase in ad valorem property tax rev-
enue, but not the double-digit increases
that have become common in recent years.,
Owners would have to pay rising taxes
on property that rises in value, but not at a
confiscatory rate.
Improvements to the property --con-
struction of homes on vacant land or
expanding existing commercial structures
would increase the taxable value, but
only by the cost of the improvements.
We do not expect legislators to form a
long line to discuss with us the implemen-
tation of this concept. There are as many
possible solutions to the disproportionate
.increase in property taxes as there are peo-
ple who want to propose them.
, Our point is that the people seized con-
trol of their taxes with the Save Our Homes
adifendment, and the same concept could
be applied to all real estate property taxes.

A Simple Proposal


For Property Tax Reform


Taste in fine art evolves over time;
tacky is timeless

The first known art was creat-
ed by artists or taggers on
cave walls in' prehistoric times,
back before Al Gore invented the
Internet.
Whether it was art or graffiti
depends on whether or not the
creator had the permission of the
caveowner to display his limited
talents.
Perhaps,.early cave art was
nothing more than. doodling,
since pencil, paper, and the Etch-
a-Sketch had not yet been invent-
ed.
While I was given to under-
stand in elementary school that
the early cave drawings were
surely works of art intended to
show future generations what
beasts of the day looked like and
give an insight into the. caved-
weller lifestyle, I think that may
impute too much of a sense of
history to a generation which had
no concept of history, since they
were the ones who started it.
After all, the term "pre-historic"'
does have meaning, right?
Mary has pictures and metal
sculptures of owls all over our
house, not because she wants
members of the 31st Century to
know what owls looked like in
the 21st Century, but because she
likes owls.
Were cavedwellers more per-
ceptive than my wife? If so, you


can tell her that yourself, Bubba.
.Twenty years or so ago, I was
fortunate enough to be selected
for a press junket to Cairo. Egypt
has a sense of history unmatched
in most of the rest of the world,
certainly in the United States.
There is a career called
Egyptology, with college major to
match.
We have our historians, of
course, but we don't think of
them as Americologists.
Anyway, one way that
Egyptologists can date the antiq-
uities is by the style of art found
on them. The earlier work was
quite stylized, reminiscent of
cave dweller art, but as the art-
form evolved, it became more
representational. And if represen-
tational is not a word, it should
be.
In modern -times, art -- in
addition to pictuers and metal
sculptures of owls has evolved
into -ensible images like Marilyn
Monroe with a purple plastic face
and Elvis on black velvet. Black
velvet Elvi line the roads in rural
America on Saturday mornings.
This sophisticated treatise on
the evolution of fine art, and the
opening observation, was
inspired by the announcement
last week that the premier manu-
facturer of plastic pink flamingos
is going out of business.
Silly me.
I always assumed that there
were as many pink plastic flamin-

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

A Plethora of Plastic


I have lived in this house since
December of 1959. All of a sud-
den, or so it seemed, it was filled
with stuff.
I started sorting things out and
discovered that since I have lost
more than 100 pounds, I had
'plenty of clothes to dispose of. I
hated to get rid of my red dress
with the fringe around the skirt,
but I looked like a refugee from
the home for starving dieters
when I put it on. Oh, how I hated
to part with that dress.
I called the Salvation Army to
come and get that and a bunch of
suits, jackets, slacks and odds
and ends. You just cannot have
your entire wardrobe altered
when you lose that much weight.
Now I will have to go shop-
ping to replace all of my clothes
that are way too big.
At least, I have discovered
why I gained so much weight -
it was because I loved chocolate,
pork chops, ice cream and practi-
cally everything you can get at a
drive-in window. Luckily, my
shoes still fit.
When I realized the main thing
that was taking up space in the
house, I couldn't believe it. It was
plastic ba .s.
I had plastic bags in every
room, closet and cupboard. I had
plastic grocery bags, plastic zip-
per bags, big garbage bags for the


outside garbage cans, big bags to
keep blankets in, clothes bags on
hangers, and those handy little
bags for refrigerator leftovers.
I started getting "organized."
I designated the big leather chair
in the den as the place to collect
the boxes of bags. There were
plastic bags in every room in the
house in their own little boxes of
different colors: red, blue, black,
striped, and clear.
The little bags were fine for a
half lemon or a leftover piece of
chicken. The really big bags
would probably hold a riding
lawn mower or the front seat of
my car. I have no idea why I
bought those huge bags. I don't
even own a lawnmower any
more. Mr. Chadwick, who takes
care of the yard, has a really big
one that works just great.
One of the hall closets yielded
two packages of plastic bags that
wouldn't fit into the chair, so I
started another chair which also


filled up in no time flat. Luckily,
my son Blake came over to install
a new bird feeder in the back
yard and selected some bags that
he said Carol would like. He did-
n't even make a dent in the col-
lection.
I can remember B.P.D. -
Before Plastic was Discovered. I
think the first thing made out of
plastic was Bakelite tennis rack-
ets. They gradually started mak-
ing everything out of plastic
except food.
When we lived in Zephyrhills,
it was my responsibility to take
the garbage out every day and
bury it in the back yard near the
fence. Zephyrhills evidently did-
n't have a sanitation department
back then.
The paper even arrives in a
plastic bag every day. That does-
n't thrill me at all.
I don't expect to ever buy
more plastic garbage bags.


go manufacturers as there were
Elvis-on-black-velvet artists, but
that is not the case.
The real plastic pink flamingos
have been manufactured for 49
years by Union Products, Inc., at
a plant in Leominster, Mass., a
plant-which once employed more
than 100 Leominsteronians who
turned out millions of plastic
pink flamingos.
Most of them can be found in
Florida, usually in the yards of
New Jersey-Americans and other
Northern aliens who move to
South Florida and immediately
complain about over-population.
It's not lack of demand for the
tackiest thing this side of alligator
farms that has put Union
Products out of business.
Even as indestructible as, the
plastic birds are, there are enough
tacky Nawthunuhs infiltrating
Florida every day to keep the
industry alive.
SUnion Products closed its
doors on Nov. 1, citing rising
prices of plastic and electricity
and "financing problems" pre-
sumably brought about by
bankers without a highly-devel-
oped sense of tackiness.
I, for one, shall miss the end-
less supply of tacky pink flamin-
gos.
But look at the bright side: this
opens up a widely expanded
market for black velvet Elvi.

PBS&J Director Named President Of CMAA Music On


PBS&J National Service Di-
rector for Construction, Randy
Larson, P.E., CCM, was inducted
as president of the Construction
Management Association of
America (CMAA) during the or-
ganization's national conference
and trade show held in Tampa,
Oct. 15-17.
Larson has been a CMAA
board member and officer since
2003.
CMAA's membership of 4,000
represents a broad spectrum of
the design and construction in-
dustry, including construction.
management practitioners, pub-
lic and private owners, design-
ers, contractors, attorneys, in-
surers, services consultants, edu-
cators, and students.
As president, Larson will con-
tinue the group's mission to pro-
mote professionalism and excel-
lence in the management of the


construction process.
A PBS&J employee since
1987, Larson oversees the firm's
construction activities nation-
wide.
In 1997, he launched PBS&J
Constructors, Inc., an alter'na-
tive delivery construction man-
agement company. He currently
serves on the board of directors
for PBS&J.
An active member of his com-
munity in Plant City, Larson's
background includes three con-
secutive terms as mayor.
He also served three terms as
a city commissioner, and chaired
the Plant City Chamber of Com-
merce for one term.
At the conclusion of his politi-
cal career in Plant City, and as a
result of his successful efforts to
convert the old Cincinnati Reds
spring training complex into
headquarters for the Interna-


tional Softball Federation, a new
city recreational complex was re-
cently named in his honor, the
Randy L. Larson Softball Four-
plex. In 2005, he was named
"Strong Leader of the Year" by
the Tampa Metropolitan YMCA
for his significant contributions
to the community.
Larson is a registered profes-
sional engineer, in five southeast-
ern states and the Common-
wealth of Puerto Rico, a regis-
tered general contractor in Flor-
ida, and a certified construction
manager.
He is a graduate of the Flor-
ida Chamber's Leadership Flor-
ida program (Class XVIII). Lo-
cated in PBS&J's Tampa office,
Larson can be reached at 1-813-
281-7360 or by e-mail at rllar-
son@pbsj.com.


Property Tax Notices Have Been Mailed


Annual property tax notices to
all of Polk County's property
owners were mailed out on Oct.
31.
"Property owners should be
receiving their bills in the mail
in the coming days", said Tedder.
"We want taxpayers to make
sure they get a bill on or before
Nov. 13."
A property tax bill mailing
went out this week to more than
406,222 property owners.
A separate bill is sent out for
each parcel or account. However,
failure to receive a tax notice for
a particular parcel or account
does not relieve the property
owner of their obligation to pay
their taxes.
Florida law makes taxpayers
responsible for knowing that
their property taxes are due and
payable each year.
"While the responsibility is on
the property owner to make sure
that they receive a bill," Tax Col-
lector Joe Tedder said, "our office


works hard each year, to notify
the public when tax bills are
sent out and due. And because of
the way the law is written, the
burden remains with the prop-
erty owner to notify our office
should they fail to receive a bill."
Taxes for 2006 have a total
taxable amount of $634,702,635,
as compared to last year's tax
roll which had a total taxable
amount of $523,754,064.
The increases this year reflect
a significant increase in ap-
praised values across the county
even though village rates levied
by the various taxing authorities
have decreased.
This year's tax roll represents
a 21 percent increase in taxes
and assessments billed from the
prior year.
Tedder's office also provides
an insert with the tax notice to
help answer taxpayer questions.
The insert provides instructions
and information, including a list-
ing of taxing and levying

Dec. 1; matinees start at 2:30
p.m. on Nov. 19 and Dec. 3.
Paul Bauek: assistant profes-

In "Proof," Catherinm, a trou-

years caring for her brilliant but
unstable father, a famous
mathematician.
Following his death, she en-
dures the arrival of an eccentric
sister and the attentions of a
self-serving former student of
her father's;
Written by David Auburn, the
play was awarded the 2001 Tony

Prize for drama.
"Proof was made into a movie

"To me, -Proof is a play about
mathematicians whose science
matters less than their human-

"-With compassionate under-
standing the play explores how
limited intelligence is for under-
standing the most profound
piiblems of living. In math.
proofs may be proven true,.but
in life trust and leaps, of faith
may be necessary to derive at

PCC Employees
Donate $600
To American
Cancer Society
Poik Community College
chapter of Florida Association of
Community Colleges held a
unique contest to benefit the
American Cancer Society.
Money raised from the contest
was earmarked specifically for
breast cancer research.
"Our second Audacious Ladies
for the Breast Cancer Research
Fund was a great success," said
Professor Steven Goldman, con-
test chairman.
"Thanks to our ten partici-
pants, we sold over 120 voting
books and collected $600 for the
research fund," he said.
The faculty and staff of PCC's
Lakeland and Winter Haven
campuses participated.
Over a five-day period PCC
employees voted for items in five
categories Classiest Shoes,
Ugliest Shoes, Unique Purses,
Unique Jewelry, and Outrageous
Accessory.
Throughout the week some 55
people viewed the items on
PCC's intranet and voted for
their favorites. The owner of the
item for the week was awarded
dinner for two at a local restau-
rant.
Although the event took place
in April, PCC's FACC chapter
traditionally makes the award
presentation during breast can-
cer awareness month.
This year, Eunice Hutto, unit
representative of the American
Cancer Society, accepted the
$600 check designated for breast
cancer research from FACC/PCC
President Val Baker.
SThe lady with the most votes
for the week was Professor Cath-
erine Frank, who won dinner at
the Olive Garden restaurant. *

Whooping C

States Allow
Whooping cough is re-emerg-
ing nationwide and youngsters
in states that permit parents to
easily opt out of vaccinating
their children are at increased
risk from the disease, research-
ers from Johns Hopkins Univer-
sity and the University of Flor-
ida reported in the. Journal of
the American Medical Associa-
tion.
States that readily grant ex-
emptions or offer personal belief
exemptions have about 50 per-
cent higher rates of pertussis,
more commonly known as
whooping cough, after adjusting
for a large number of demo-
graphic variables.
"By demonstrating an associa-
tion between state policies and
pertussis, we highlight the very
real consequences of relaxing
school immunization require-
ments," said Saad Omer,
M.B.B.S., M.P.H., an assistant
scientist of international health
at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg
School of Public Health and the
study's first author.
All states require documenta-
tion, that children' entering
school have met the require-
ments, which include vaccines to
protect against diseases such as
diphtheria, measles, polio and
pertussis.
But all states also permit
medical exemptions to immuni-
zation requirements, and most
allow exemptions based on relig-
ious beliefs..
Many offer a broader exemp-
tion based on personal 'belief
that may be granted for relig-
ious, philosophical or other non-
medical reasons.
"This really adds a new piece
of information in our effort to
control pertussis," said Dr. Dan-
iel Salmon, an associate profes-
sor of epidemiology in the Uni-
versity of Florida College of
Medicine and the study's senior
author.
Recently, several states also
have sought to expand nonmedi-
cal exemptions.
"Our study shows an increase
in the' number of children ex-
empted in states that make ex-
emptions widely available,"
Omer said.
Researchers at the two, aca-
demic health c enters and at. the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention examined long-term
data on state-level exemption
rates at school entry and the in-
cidence of pertussis for individu-
als 18 years or younger.
They found that nonmedical
exemption rates were higher and
increasing in states'that permit-
ted exemptions based on per-
sonal belief and in states where
exemption processes were less
arduous.
Those states also were
strongly associated with higher
incidence of pertussis.
Pertussis a highly conta-
gious but preventable disease -
is endemic in the United States.
According to the CDC, the in-
cidence of the disease has in-
creased nationwide in the last 20
years, with 25,827 cases re-
ported in 2004, the most recent
data available.
Pertussis is caused by a bacte.
rial toxin that is spread easily
through person-to-person con-
tact, coughing and sneezing.
It is more severe in infants
and young children, who conse-
quently have a greater risk of
pneumonia, seizures, encephalo-
pathy (a brain disorder) and
other potentially deadly compli-

Scientists May Now Study Tiny

Amounts Of Material For Discovery


Good things may indeed come
in small packages for scientists
eager to find natural substances
to help cure diseases.
The challenge is to analyze
material that is smaller than the
proverbial gnat's eyelash.
But using a refined version of
nuclear magnetic resonance
technology, or NMR, scientists
have unlocked secrets hidden in
tiny amounts of venom taken
from spindly insects called com-
mon two-stripe walking sticks,
which are relatively harmless,
plant-eating creatures common
in the eastern United States.
The analytical technique, de-
scribed in the current issue of
ACS Chemical Biology by scien-
tists at the McKnight Brain' In-
stitute of the University of Flor-
ida and the Center for Medical,
Agricultural and Veterinary En-
tomology at the Gainesville U.S.
Department of Agriculture, could
aid in the search for natural sub-
stances to make medicines.
It also shows that scientists
can obtain. volumes of informa-
tion from very tiny samples,
Which could be useful in efforts
to understand Alzheimer's dis-
ease and other disorders.
"There. are many potent, use-
ful. molecules made by plants'
and animals, but they :are usu-
ally produced in such' small
quantities it takes a huge
amount of material to character-
ize them," Dr. Arthur Edison, an
associate professor of biochemis-
try and molecular biology,, said.
"In this case, it previously re-
quired hundreds of milkings to
get enough walking stick venom
for analysis. We were able to get
great data from just one milk-
ing."
Researchers at the McKnight
Brain Institute's Advanced Mag-
netic Resonance Imaging and
Spectroscopy equipped an NMR
spectrometer with a special
probe to examine the venom,
which the walking stick sprays
to defend itself from predators.
Similar to the magnetic reso-
nance imagers ised to examine
patients in hospitals, this ana-
lytical tool uses much stronger
magnetic fields to study smaller


samples, allowing scientists to
study molecules atom' by atom.
But what made this particu-
lar method unique is not the ex-
treme power of the magnet,
which at 600 megahertz is fairly
standard, but the extreme sensi-
tivity of the probe the compo-
nent that is inserted into the
magnet to obtain chemical infor-
mation from the samples.
Developed by scientists at the
National High Magnetic Field
Laboratory at UF and in Talla-
hassee, and a manufacturer of
NMR equipment, the probe is
only about two inches in diame-
ter, and the space for the sample
itself is about one millimeter in
diameter. j
When in use, the ptobe is
cooled to lower than 400 degrees
Fahrenheit below zero to reduce
electrical signals that would in-
terfere with the analysis,
But the sample area itself is.
kept warm to protect the speci-
men.
"It is now possible to approach
problems we couldn't think
about before," said Edison, who
said he welcomes collaboration
with other scientists interested
in using the new probe. "For ex-
ample, in mouse models of Park-
inson's or Alzheimer's disease,
there is not a lot of tissue to
work with, especially if you're
studying a sample from a single
animal.
"But this is a way we could
obtain potentially important
chemical information about dis-
ease from small amounts of
brain tissue."
Scientists used walking stick
venom to demonstrate the tech-
nique partly because it combined
lead researcher Aaron Dossey's
passion for studying insects with
his formal training in biochemis-
try.
"I've raised different species of
walking sticks, which are well
known. to spray defensive
venom," Dossey said. "We
thought if this technique really
can look at small samples, well,
a milkingof a single walking
stick is very small. It's worth a
try."
They discovered compounds

not previously known to be pre-
sent in these animals, as well as
chemical differences in secre-
tions: from the same walking
stick at different times.
Notably, they found a high
concentration of glucose, a sim-
ple sugar and vital cellular, fuel.
"Glucose is an expensive
molecule to spray at your preda-
tors," Edison said. "But why is
the glucose there? It may be
something the walking stick
uses to enable it to safely store
the toxic material in the insect's
gland until it is ready for use as
a venom, to improve the proper-
ties of the spray or some other
reason we haven't yet consid-
ered.
'It's the kind of thing that
may provide hints about drug
discovery in future."
More than 40 years ago, Dr.
Jerrold Meinwald, an emeritus
professor of chemistry and
chemical biology at Cornell Uni-
versity, led landmark chemical
studies of walking stick venom.
SHe was pleased to know the
insect was being, studied in Flor-
ida.
"We used not dozens but thou-
sands of walking sticks to get
enough secretions to do analyses
and, no, it's not easy ,to do,"
Meinwald said. "When we
started you could hardly work
with natural materials in terms
of milligrams. Now you can do
chemistry on the microgram
scale.
"NMR has made enormous
progress it has thousands of
times the sensitivity it used to
have. The findings in Florida
represent the great improvement
that has taken place in the state
of the art. It's nice to see it ap-
plied to this insect."

Jackets Close Out Reglr Season Twilight Thunder Takes Third Place
I7tIh VlTrtn r1 rr Thwinn 1r 9,iR.Q


By JEFF THORNBURG
Bartow concluded the regular
season of high school football
Friday night with a 26-9 win
over Lake Region on a chilly,
and very windy field of Thunder.
The Yellow Jackets improve
to 7-3 and prepare for their first
round playoff game Friday at Ti-
tusville Astronaut.
"This was a very important
game for us," said Bartow Head,
Coach Shawn Killets, "important
to get the win."
The Bartow coaching staff de-
cided to rest several starters, in-
clude quarterback Devarious
Cook, running backs Carl Edler
and Justin Hogan.
Bartow's sophomore backup
quarterback Christian Clay and
senior defensive back, turned
running back Phillip Jackson
and junior Curtis Reddick, lead
the Jacket offense.
Jackson, who leads the team
in interceptions, scored two
touchdowns, while gaining 88
yards on 12 carries. Reddick
massed 62 rushing yards on just
seven carries.
The very stiff wind kept the
passing attack grounded. Both
teams combined for 13 at-
tempted passes, and only four
were complete, gaining 54 yards.
Bartow's senior kicker Brent
Delph opened the scoring with a


29-yard field goal, following a
10-yard Thunder punt into that
stuff wind.
Later in the first quarter,
Bartow's Jasper Stephens, recov-
ered a Thunder fumble, and
dashed 14-yards into the end-
zone.
During the second quarter,
Bartow's offense got on track
and scored twice.
Bartow took just over four
minutes, and drove 72 yards in
12 plays, capped by a 10-yard
run by Jackson.
Then about 90 seconds later,
'Jackson, in punt formation as a
blocker, took a direct snap, and
scampered 40 yards, weaving his
way through the defense and
into the endzone.
Lake Region sacked Clay in
the endzone for a safety in the
third, and late in the game a 50-
yard five-play drive ended with a
pass from Matt Hopkins to
Jomall Walls from five yards out.
Delph added his sixth field
goal; of the year in the fourth
quarter, from 24-yards out.
"The young kids stepped up
and did a good job," said Killets,'
"Jackson ran well; I'm proud of
the team's effort."
Bartow now prepares for their
first post-season action since the
2004 season. The Jackets will
travel to Titusvllle for a match-
up against the Astronaut War

finish the game at hand.
With the wheels falling off the
Thunder, the hatters scored nine
runs beating the Thunder 9-5.
The Thunder came up one game
short of the championship, tak-
ing third place..
Ashley King and Melissa La-
nier were selected MVPs by the
umpires for the two wins the
.Thunder had.
In the first win it was King.
King is also the team's MVP for
the year.
She never misses practice and
has become one of the most con-
sistant players on the team. She
used to bat eighth or ninth in the.
line up, but she now bats first.
She played center field, first
and second base, and some short
stop.
Lanier was the MVP in the
second game. Like King, Lanier
was always there at practice and
grew stronger in the pitching po-
sition each and every game.
She would get hit by a ball
fall to the ground but always
jumped back up and continued to
play. Melissa also played first
base.
Both players are positive,
hard-working players on and off
the field and have improved very
much during the season.
