City Rejects Annexation


Of Land East of Bartow


Church Service Center

Celebrates 40 Years


Page 2


Veterans Day Celebrated in Bartow


In an unusual perhaps
unprecedented action, Bartow
city commissioners .refused
Monday night to annex a parcel
of land whose owner had sought
to be brought into the city limits.
The city's lack of water and
sewer service to the area and the
distance of the property from the
existing city limits was cited by
commissioners who voted against
the annexation.
The property is a parcel of
about 48 acres on the 80 Foot
Road south of State Road 60, sev-
eral miles east of Bartow. It
adjoins some of the thousands of
acres of Clear Springs Land Co.
property that was annexed by the
city several years ago.
The site is owned by Natural
Sun Citrus, Inc., and includes the
former Lake Alfred Citrus Co-op
packing plant. Much of the prop-
erty is vacant.
Although the land is within
the city's utilities service area, it
is miles from the nearest water


and sewer, lines. City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge noted that it
is on the east side of 80 Foot
Road, just.'beyond the boundary
that the commission has estab-
lished 'as its target area for
annexation.
Commissioner Pat Huff
expressed concern about the city
reaching beyond that boundary
in, its annexation, and said he
opposes allowing any more resi-
dential developments which don't
have sewer service.
Commissioner Brian Hinton
expressed concern about the lack
of water and sewer service to the
area, and the obligation that the
city would have to provide police
and fire protection that far from
town.
On a roll call vote, Mayor
Rosie Thornburg joined Huff and
Hinton in voting against the
annexation. Commissioners Leo
Longworth and James, F.
Clements voted for it.
In other land use issues, the


commission: ;
Deferred again, as it has for
several months,? final approval of
a "planned development" subdi-
vision 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.
Passed on first reading two
related ordinances to rezone a
parcel of land at 490 South U.S.
Highway 17 from R-2 duplexes,
to C-3 highway commercial .
The parcel of slightly more than
one-tenth of an acre is the site of
a plumbing shop. now closed.
Passed on first reading an
ordinance requiring the commis-
sion's approval of development
agreements made with develop-
ers regarding extension of water
and sewer lines. At present, that
authority is given to the city
staff.


Judd Returns $6.7 Million;


County To Set Money Aside


Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd returned a check for $6.7
million to Polk County
Commissioners on Wednesday.
The money, unspent funds
from fiscal year 2005-06, repre-
sented hurricane reimbursement
funds, personnel money, unspent
operating funds and other rev-
enue, as well as almost $350,000
collected from book-in fees at the
jail.
"I believe in user fees, and I
tell people if they don't want to
pay the $30, don't commit
crimes," Judd said.
In its budget, the county had
anticipated only receiving $1.6


million back from the sheriff's
office for fiscal year 2005-2006.
"This money is not mine, and
it's not yours," Sheriff Judd said
to the commissioners during the
presentation. "It's the taxpayers'
money, and I've always said that
if I can save money. 1 will."
SDuring the year, Judd said he
was able to save money by buy-
ing new police cars at last year's
rate, saving $78,000, and moving
for quicker hearings on parole
offenders.
Judd al-o ,:!dcit-d:l the Faith-
based dorm system at the jail as
cost saving, and keeping 80 per-
cent of participating offenders'


from returning to jail.
Judd said that while Polk
County is experiencing -ome of
the lowest crime rates in 35
years, with added growth, the
sheriff'. office is bracing for more
work, and asked the commission
to save the funds to prepare.
Judd asked that $4 S million
of the returned funds be set
aside to plan foir future needs.
such as the new North Ridge
District Command, the new
county public safety center, com-
puter ',-,tern- ;n-tegration, and
future aviation costs
Commissioners agreed to the
request


New Program Offers Less Jail

Time To Repeat DUI Drivers


Those arrested and sentenced
for multiple counts of drunken
driving will have an option that
could lessen jail time.
Polk County commissioners
approved the hiring of a coun-
selor, probation officer and case
manager for a new program that
will offer treatment to drunken
drivers.
Paid for by a $90,700 grant
from Florida Dept. of
Transportation and user fees, the


program, which is similar to drug
court, will allow sentenced dri-
vers to voluntarily join the pro-
gram, and lessen their jail time.
The program is intended for
repeat violators, and while com-
missioners were hopeful,
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said the most important part of
the program would be user sup-
port.
"I talked to a man in Alcoholics
Anonymous, and he said after the


court ordered treatment.
(drinkers) go back to drinking,"
he said. "For this to work they
have to buy into it. We can court
order it all we want, but until
they buy in or hit rock bottom it
won't work."
WVhile the program is volun-
tary, offenders will be subject to
on-site, random alcohol tests and
other requirements to stay in the
program and keep from return-
ing to jail.


City Audit Shows


Progress Since


2004 Hurricanes


FROM BEAUTIFUL baubles to colorful cats, crafts of every kind
were displayed at the annual Fall Craft Show Saturday in downtown
Bartow. The day was cool and delightful, a perfect day for visiting
vendors, seeing friends and enjoying downtown. Photos by Dawn

After the financial blow dealt
by the hurricanes of 2004 and
other financial pressures, the
City of Bartow made substantial
progress on the road to recovery
in the 2004-05 fiscal year, accord-
ing to the city's external auditor;
The city's general fund had a
year-end unrestricted surplus of
slightly more than $1 million at
the cl of the fiscal year, com-
pared tuo 250,000 a year earlier,
External Auditor Tierso Nunez
told the city commission.
Nunez said. the city should
shoot for a year-end surplus of $4
million to $5 million in the gen-
eral fund, which is the fund from
which the city pays the general
operations of governments, such
as police and fire protection and
parks and recreation.
Not included in the general
fund are the financial operations
of the city's utilities departments
- notably the electric depart-
ment which are operated as
businesses and are expected to
show a profit. Those profits are
the major source of income for
the general fund.
The city's net assets grew by
about $6 million during the fiscal
year, from $50.5 million to $56.5
million.


The city's debt increased by
$7.7 million, reflecting borrowing
from the Florida Municipal Loan
Council Bonds to pay for $1.5
million in water line extensions,
$3.5 million in road improve-
ments, $1.43 million to purchase
and renovate new quarters for
the electric department just east
of Bartow Municipal Airport, and
$1.2 million for the new Carver
Recreation Center gymnasium.
Bartow's cost for removal of
hurricane debris from the three
storms in 2004 exceeded $1 mil-
lion, a cost paid by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA).
City government incurred
about $2.7 million hurricane
recovery costs, most of which was
reimbursed by FEMA during the
2005-06 fiscal year, the report
said.
The Florida Dept. of
Transportation transferred own-
ership and maintenance of Main
Street to the city, and paid for
redesign to convert Main from a
through highway to a city street.
The city also received about $2
million in state parks and recre-
ation grants.

Two years ago, a partnership
of two families was established.
Susie and Chris Scott and Chris-
tine and Bob Jacobson, combined
their talents and became incor-
porated as the "Airbase Bud-
dies."
Both families already own
successful businesses at the Bar-
tow Airbase. The Scotts have the
popular breakfast and lunch
sandwich shop, Kathy's Too,
which will become the new Bar-
tow Muncipal Airport restau-
rant, Bartow Flightline Grill,
scheduled to be open in Decem-
ber.
The Jacobsons own Custom
Avionics, a business that installs
aircraft electronics, communica-
tions and navigation systems in
airplanes.
Airbase Buddies started look-
ing around for a business to-run
for the partnership and found
Logo Land. They bought the spe-
cialty items store and renamed it
Logoland.
Scott said he liked the loca-
tion of Downtown Bartow, and
all four business partners al-
ready had an interest in logos, so
it seemed to make a good fit.
"Logoland can provide a busi-
ness name printed on almost
anything," Scott said. "Coffee
cups, umbrellas, coolers, back-
packs,. carwash kits, lanyards,
and even four-port hubs for your
computer can be personalized.
We offer on-premises embroidery
you can get just one shirt or a
book bag printed up at a fair
price."
The Jacobsons also are offer-
ing logo designs for the interior *
bulkheads of airplanes using the
embroidery machine. This is be-
coming a very popular item at
the air base for pilots who want
to personalize their planes.
"With the help of the good
people of Bartow and surround-
ing towns, Logoland has tripled
its. business and staff," Scott
said. "This year, for the first


time, Logoland now offers subli-
mation T-shirts. Sublimation is a
process where a photo can be put
on the shirt."

Zonn* u* THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Zoning dance: Is It Paranoia, or Just Politics?


Had we felt moved to give advice to
Bartow city commissioners before last
week's vote on the Wind Meadows South
development on E.F. Griffin Road and
we did not our advice would have been
simple:
Don't be intimidated by the number of
people in the audience.
Don't be intimidated by the possibility
of another lawsuit.
Listen to both sides.
Then do what you truly believe to be
the right thing.
We believe that is what each of Bartow's
five commissioners did in voting 3-to-2 to
reject the "planned development" zoning
that would have allowed 670 single-family
homes and 200 townhouse units in the
development.
The two concerns cited most often were
the inability of E.F. Griffin Road to handle
the traffic from 1,200 additional homes
(including those already going up in Wind
Meadows Phase One) and the ability of the
police and fire departments to provide
coverage to that many new homes.
The fact that the city's "staff report" says
that the departments could handle the
additional load does not automatically
make it so.
The fire department already serves that
area under contract with the county, and
arguably has the resources to assume the
responsibility for 1,200 more homes.
The police department's ability to pro-
vide adequate protection to a 20 percent
growth in the number of households in
Bartow, a couple of miles north of the area
which officers presently patrol, is another
matter. Frankly, we doubt it.
As to the road capacity, it would almost
appear that there are two E.F. Griffin
Roads: one that transportation planners
say can handle several thousand more
trips per day, the other that residents say
already is becoming hard to navigate. Two
commissioners believe the first E.F. Griffin
Road is the "real" one, three believe the
second road is what exists.

Two comments, largely overlooked in
this politically-charged issue, bear repeat-
ing.
From City Atty. George Dunlap: The
rural nature of the area "probably has been


destroyed" by the city's prior approval of
code minimum developments.
From Commissioner Brian Hinton: "The
big enemy here is the comprehensive
plan."
Both observations are valid, and both
represent a failure of city government to
protect the lifestyle that many Bartowans
say makes this a unique community.
Dunlap -shows an abundance of caution
when he uses the word "probably." The
justification for each new development has
become "because we've already done it on
neighboring property."
The city's comp plan defines "low densi-
ty residential" as up to six units per acre,
even though the city's planning director
says it is impossible to put more than a lit-
tle over three, houses per acre under the
city's maximum density for single family
homes, R-1 zoning.
The comp plan's definition of "compati-
bility" talks about land uses that can
"coexist." It can be persuasively argued
that almost any land uses can "coexist."
Within Bartow's city limits, there are
homes across the street from jails, homes
within sight of a landfill. They "coexist"
because the people who own homes there
have no choice.:
Does that make them "compatible" in
the usual sense?
We doubt it.
By its action, the commission decided
that poor judgment in previous develop-
ment decisions does not mandate poor
judgment in future decisions.
Perhaps the next decision should be to
update the comp plan with realistic lan-
.guage that supports the commission's
vision for-Bartow.

Do the Right Thing


If they're really out to get you, it's
not paranoia.

For months, a few Democrats
have been working themselves
into a paranoid dither over elec-
tronic voting machines.
The president of one of the
major electronic voting machine
companies is a Republican, so
there's a high probability, their
reasoning goes, that every.elec-
tronic .voting apparatus in the
country was rigged to produce
Republican victories.
Except, perhaps, for Katherine
Harris.
I read a lengthy article about it
in Rolling Stone. If that's not
proof, I don't know what is.
HBO even produced a docu-
mentary on the subject. It used a
test of eight votes cast on one
computer as: proof that the
nation's entire voting, machine
industry was corrupt.
I'm n ot sure how many ballots
you have to put through how
many machines to establish that
the system is rotten to the core,
but I kind of figured that some-
how the numbers should be high-
er than eight and one, respective-
ly.
Well, if the entire voting
machine industry was stacked for
the GOP, it. obviously failed. I
guess you could figure that if the
machines really were pro-
grammed to fix the election for
the GOP, they didn't work right.





S *)A
*"


Somehow, I doubt that was the
case.
With the Democrats now in
control of Congress, it's time for
the Republicans to become para-
noid. That is, after all, the duty of
the minority party.
Maybe they could start by see-
ing if the supposedly Republican
president of the largest voting
machine company was kid-
napped by aliens from another
galaxy and reprogrammed as a
Democrat.
Paranoid delusion?
Well ... nrot if it really hap-
pened.

SOver in the 13th Congressional
District, Christine Jennings is
leading the paranoid pack. I
don't know if she is a Democrat
or a Republican, and paraphras-
ing the classic words of Clark
Gable in Gone with the Wind,
frankly, My Dear, I really don't
give a rat's patoot.
Jennings lost by 373 votes to
Ven Buchanan. Okay, stuff hap-
pens.
But there were, in election-
counting parlance, 18,000 under-
votes. An undervote, unlike
underwear, isn't there at all.
An undervote means that, a
voter'didn't cast a vote in a given
race. Undervotes are as common
as yard signs in a political year.
While conspiracy theorists are
claiming that the machines didn't
count 18,000 votes which

OUR READERS SAY

Discuss End-of-Life Issues


LAKELAND In 2005, Good
Shepherd Hospice had the honor
of serving more than 3,500 people
in Polk, Highlands and Hardee
Counties facing life-limiting ill-
nesses. These 3,500 people are
your family, friends and neigh-
bors. In 2006, we will serve even
more. Since 1995 the number of
families we've helped each year
has grown by over six fold.
In 1979, Good Shepherd
became the first free-standing,
not-for-profit hospice in the area.
As the only hospice in the area
accredited by the Joint
Commission on the Accreditation
of Healthcare Organizations, con-
sidered the "gold standard" for
health care accreditation nation-
ally, we are dedicated to provid-
ing high quality hospice pro-
grams and services to help
patients and families address
end-of-life issues.
Trained professionals and vol-
unteers provide pain and symp-
tom control, emotional and spiri-
tual care, and dignity, 24 hours a
day, seven days a week. Good
Shepherd Hospice offers compas-
sionate support to families and
loved ones during one of life's
most challenging times.
At the core of our mission are
the people we serve. I could tell
any number of moving stories
about our patients and their
loved-ones, but one in particular
resonates for me. A patient near-


ing the end of her life requested
that she be allowed to die at'
home, surrounded by her
beloved dogs. However, her
home was hundreds of miles
away, out of our service area.
Partnering with communities,
institutions and individuals, we
honored her request. To the
world she may have been just one
person, but to us
she was the
world.
In November,
the nation recog-
nizes National
Hospice and
Palliative Care
Month' Rather
than being hon-
ored with corn-
memorative
events and stir-
ring words,
Good Shepherd
has one simple
request: that
people every-
where take a few
moments to tell
their loved ones vai
their end-of-life
wishes. This will
allow Good
Shepherd the 4
opportunity to
help those facing
life-limiting ill-
nesses succeed
in living their


lives to the fullest while support-
ing their needs and wishes.

end-of-life discussions, visit the

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

A Cadillac and a Trip To Mexico?


I just got home from the gro-
cery store my second trip in
two days to get things I forgot
yesterday.
The phone rang, and when I
answered it, a man with a Yankee
accent asked me if I was me and
gave me my address. I acknowl-


edged that I am me. He even
asked me if my e-mail address
and the street address he had
were correct.
I asked him who he was and
why he wanted to know. He said
he was with a company that was
giving a prize to a person who
had entered their
contest and that I
had won a Cadillac
and a trip to Mexico.
I told him he had
the wrong person,
that I had not
entered a contest.
He said there was
also a lot of cash
being given away. I
told him again that I
had not entered his
contest. I then hung
.up and fed the dog.
While I was get-
ting Sparky's dinner
out of the can, he
called again and
e asked me if they
ers had the correct
address where they
could deliver the
car. I just hung up
again and gave
SSparky his dinner.
I told him I didn't
( want the car. I did-
n't want to go to
Mexico. I hung up


again. He sounded like he was,
getting irritated. He was calling
from a number in Chicago,
according to my caller I.D.
I didn't tell him I once had a
Cadillac when I was in real estate
and it was a real lemon. It died at
red lights and sometimes at stop
signs. It guzzled a lot of gas. It
was a really beautiful car, silver
and shiny, but I prefer a car that
will go when you turn on the
ignition and step on the gas
pedal. I had it in the dealership
every other week and they never
did find out what the problem
was.
I hung up again.
I was still trying to fix Sparky's
dinner when the phone rang
again. That man just didn't take
"no" for an answer. He sounded
angry that he got a woman on the
phone who didn't want a
Cadillac and a trip to Mexico.
I think that was some sort of
scam. Never in my whole life
have I ever entered a contest
where they were giving away a
Cadillac and a trip to Mexico or
anywhere else. I am wondering if
I should change my e-mail
address on the computer and go
rent a post office box.
If he shows up around here, I
will sic Sparky on him. Sparky
doesn't like it when I am kept
from fixing his dinner.


Jennings assumes all were cast
for her others find a simpler
solution:
Buchanan and Jennings each:
campaigned so negatively'
against the other that the voters
either couldn't figure out which
one to vote for (or against), or
were so disgusted that they did-
n't vote for either one.
Occasionally not this year
- I have ceremoniously held my
nose while voting for the least
awful choice from two sorry can-
didates.
I guess the next step beyond
the nose-hold vote is not to vote,.
so that no matter which candi-
date wins; you can proudly
declare that you didn't help put
him or\her in office.

Oh, I mentioned yard signs.
Notice to candidates: the elec-
tion is over.
Whether you won or lost, it's
time to remove the signs, espe-
cially the ones that were planted
on road right-of-way or on vacant
property.
Presumably the people who
supported your candidacy
enough to put a sign in their own
yards will remove their own
signs in due time; until then, they
are entitled to display them for a
few more days. Especially if their
candidate won.
The rest of the signs are no
longer advertisements; they are
blight. Time to get rid of 'em.

SOFTLY SMILING at what might be inside, a young Cambo-
dian girl opens her shoe box gift. Since 1993, Operation Christmas
Child has delivered hope and joy to more than 45 million children
devastated by war, natural disaster, famine, disease, and poverty.
Local groups and individuals participate in the collection each year.
- (Photo provided)


A tradition that many local
individuals and groups look for-
ward to during the holiday sea-
son is filling shoe boxes for chil-
dren around the world for Op-
eration Christmas Child, a min-
istry of Samaritan's Purse.
Locally, The Polk County
Democrat and The Fort Meade
Leader are helping their readers
participate in this ministry.
Operation Christmas Child
delivers shoe boxes filled with
gifts for children such as toys,
personal items and school sup-
plies to millions of children all
over the world each year. Last
year, more than six million chil-
dren experienced the joy of
Christmas with the help of Op-
eration Christmas Child. Some
of these children had never re-
ceived a Christmas gift before.

Operation Christmas Child
Comes Full Circle
John and. Maria Peterson
spent years filling shoe boxes
full of gifts, confident that what
they were doing in Texas could
make a huge difference in the
lives of needy children in other'
countries..But what they didn't
expect was to see Operation
Christmas Child come to life in
such a personal and surprising
way through their adopted chil-
dren all five of them.
In 2002, after years of prayer
and research, the Petersons fi-
nally had the opportunity to ful-
fill their dream of becoming par-
ents when they adopted 11-year-
old twins from a Russian or-
phanage.
During that first Christmas
together as a family, the Peter-
sons invited their daughters to
join them as they packed their
shoe box gifts. Startled, the
twins pointed to the Operation
Christmas Child logo. They had
seen it before while still living in
their Russian orphanage.
"I remember the people at the
orphanage telling us we would
be getting Christmas presents
from America," recalled Molly
Peterson, now 14. "I prayed and
prayed for a red scarf, red
gloves, and a red hat."
When Molly opened her shoe
box gift, she discovered a scarf,
gloves, and a hat and they
were all red.


"It was the first doll I ever re-
member receiving," explained
Abby. "A shoe box really can
make a difference. I remember
how great it made me feel to
know someone I didn't even
know cared about me. I love that
I can help make another child
feel that way."
Two years after Molly and
Abby joined their family, the Pe-
tersons adopted three more Rus-
sian orphans. When Julianne,
Claire, and Tess participated in
the Petersdn tradition of packing
presents for Operation Christ-
mas Child, they too remembered
receiving shoe box gifts in Rus-
Ssia.
Last December Julianne and
Claire, the oldest children of the
Peterson family, brought their
unique shoe box experience full
circle by joining Operation
Christmas Child for a shoe box
gift distribution in Belize. After
feeling the thrill of receiving a
shoe box gift years before, Juli-
anne and Claire experienced the
joy of taking shoe boxes they had
packed themselves and person-
ally giving them to needy chil-
dren.
"To see the happiness in their
faces, and to be able to encour-
age the kids by sharing my own
story was just awesome," said
Julianne. "I know how great it
feels to get a shoe box gift, but
giving one is even better."

How to Fill A Shoe Box
Shoe boxes are filled by thou-
sands of individuals, churches,
businesses and organizations
each year. Filling a shoe box is
easy and each one is unique. In-
structions for filling a shoe box
include;
Find a empty shoe box (
standard size is requested). It
can be cardboard or plastic. The

shoe box can be wrapped, lid
separately, or left unwrapped.
Determine if the box will be
for a boy or a girl, and choose an
age category (2-4, 5-9, or 10-14).
Attach a label to the outside of
the box denoting the sex and age
of the child to receive the box.
Labels are available at www.sa-
maritanspurse.org by clicking
the "Operation Christmas Child"
link and then the "How to Pack a
Shoe Box" link. Handmade la-
.bels can be attached to the box
as well.
Suggested items include
small toys such as cars, dolls,
balls, stuffed animals, kazoos,
harmonicas, yo-yos, toys that
light up or make noise (with ex-
tra batteries), etc.; school sup-
plies such as pens, pencils and
sharpeners, crayons, markers,
stamps, coloring books, writing
pads, solar calculators, etc.; hy-
giene items such as bar soap,
toothbrush/toothpaste, wash
clothes,, brush/comb, etc.; and
other items such as hard candy,
gum, sunglasses, T-shirts, flash-
lights (with extra batteries),
socks, jewelry, hair clips, picture
books, etc.
Do not include used items;
war-related items.such as toy
guns, knives, etc.; chocolate or
perishable food items; liquids
such as shampoo, conditioner,
bubbles or lotions; medicines
such as vitamins, cough drops,
and ointments; or breakable
items such as mirrors, china
dolls, snow globes, etc.
Donors can include a note or
Christmas card to the child who
will receive the box, and a photo
of themselves. If the donor in-
cludes his name and address, the
child might write them back.
To help cover shipping and
other costs, place $7 or more for
each shoe box. You can give on-
line by using the Samaritan
Purse, website's EZGIVE option,
or you can write a check to Sa-
maritan's Purse (note "OCC" on
memo line) and place it in an en-
velope on top of the gift items in-
side your box. If you or your fam-
ily are preparing more than one
shoe box, make one combined do-
nation.
Finally, place a large rubber
band around each shoe box and
drop off at the collection center
nearest you during collection
week, Nov. 13-20.
You can also send your shoe
box gift to: Samaritan's Purse/
Operation Christmas Child, 801
Bamboo Road, Boone, NC 28607
After shoe boxes are collected
at a local drop-off point, they are
delivered to a regional center to
be inspected. A book sharing the
story of Jesus Christ is then in-
serted into each box in the
child's native language.
Shoe boxes are flown across
seas on jets and airplanes then
delivered by whatever means
possible to children.
Those who would like to do-
nate a shoe box to Operation
Christmas Child can drop off
boxes at The Democrat or The
Leader no later than 5 p.m. on
Wednesday, Nov. 15. Collection
will be limited to what will fit in
a mini-van. Other drop-off points
are in Lakeland, Plant City,
Brandon and Valrico.

Someone You Know

May Have Lupus


While October was Lupus
Awareness Month, there is, still
time to learn about this serious
disease.
Lupus, a chronic autoimmune
disease which can painfully af-
fect and damage one or more or-
gans of the body, is experienced
by millions of people worldwide,
both directly and indirectly.
It is neither contagious nor in-
fectious, and no cure is yet avail-
able. While lupus can generally
be treated and brought under
control with good medical guid-
ance in most cases, many people
will develop life-threatening
complications.
Early recognition, diagnosis,
and treatment of lupus can help
to slow the debilitating effects of
the disease and greatly reduce
the prospect of much more costly
medical interventions later on.
Because it affects people in so
many different ways, lupus can
be difficult to diagnose, as symp-
toms often-mimic common ill-
nesses.
Improving awareness of lupus
symptoms will save lives.

What Is Lupus?
Lupus is a disease of the im-
mune system. The immune sys-
tem normally protects the body
by producing antibodies, or pro-
teins, that attach to and destroy
foreign invaders, such as bacte-
lia or viruses.
For reasons not yet known, in
people with lupus the immune
system produces antibodies that
target the body's. own healthy
cells, which can lead to tissue
damage, organ failure, disability
or mortality.
The build-up of these proteins
in the tissues can cause many
symptoms, among them inflam-
mation, fatigue, skin rashes,
joint or muscle pain, and miscar-
riage.
While -the exact causes of lu-
pus are not fully understood, a
combination of defective genes
and environmental factors are
believed to play a part.

Who Gets Lupus?
While lupus impacts people


from all countries, people of cer-
tain ethnic origins can be more
likely than other groups to de-
velop lupus.
Lupus strikes mostly women
of childbearing age (15-44); how-
ever men, children and women of
all ages can develop lupus.
Researchers estimate at least
five million people worldwide
have a form of lupus, and believe
more than 100,000 new cases de-
velop every year. However,
these estimates likely are low.

The Impact of Lupus
International studies have
shown that lupus has. a consider-
able impact on the health-care
system and on society, due to the
complexity of the disease and its
treatment.
Depending on the organs af-
fected, and the frequency and se-
verity of disease activity, indi-
viduals with lupus may have to
take multiple medications, and
be treated by physicians from
several medical specialties.
Most lupus patients undergo
numerous medical evaluations
and procedures, and others re-
quire hospital care several times
per year.
The costs to the community
are profound because of loss of
income and contributions to
daily life by the person disabled
by lupus, losses often shared by
the person's family and commu-
nity.
The cost of lifelong medical
assistance is considerable, re-
gardless of whether it is paid for
by the individual or by govern-
ment.

Audit Shows Progress


(Continued from Page 1)
Other major sources .of
increased revenue, the auditor
reported:
City property taxes, up
$537,353, reflecting both new-
construction and an increase in
property values.
Franchise fees and public
services taxes, including taxes on
communication service, electrici-
ty, and water sales, rose by
$241,137.
Revenue 'sharing funds
increased by $237,781.
Rising interest rates paid on
city funds increased investment
earnings by $216,309.
Also contributing to an
improvement in the city's
finances was a decrease of more
than $1.4. million, or 7.59 per-
cent, in expenditures,, the auditor
said.
This was achieved in large
part by a hiring freeze, and a
delay of several project not relat-
ed to hurricane recovery.
Electric fund revenues
increased by $3.1 million from
the prior year, in part because
2004-05 revenues were reduced
by the widespread and lengthy


power outages caused by
Hurricanes Charley, Frances and
Jeanne in August, and September
of 2004.
Completion of several new
housing projects and commercial
projects also contributed to the
revenue growth.
The transfer of surplus rev-
enues from the electric depart-
ment to the general fund was
about $7 million.
The management letter, in
which the auditor lists any major
causes of concern, 'said that the
city has adopted prior years' rec-
ommendations for improving col-
lection of utility bills and super-
vision of bad debt write-offs.
The city showed progress in
tagging all major items of proper-
ty.
The auditor recommended
that.the city standardize its poli-
cies and procedures for travel
reimbursement.
The report criticized the city
for having about $2 million
invested "in corporate notes
which is not allowed by the city's
current investment policy."
The auditor found "no materi-
al weaknesses" in internal con-
trols.

Jackets Edge Out War Eagles, 10-9


By JEFF THORNBURG
Bartow Yellow Jackets ex-
tended their football season an-
other week with a fourth quarter
comeback win over the 11th-
ranked Astronaut War Eagles;
10-9, in a defensive struggle in
the Class 3A regional quarterfi-
nal matchup at Draa Field in Ti-
tusville on Friday night.
"We were big underdogs in'
this game", said' Bartow Head
Coach Shawn Killets, "but the
kids never quit, never gave up
and kept playing hard."
Senior kicker Brent Delph
drilled a 22-yard field goal with
four minutes left in the game to
give Bartow a one-point lead,
which was enough for the tough
Jacket defense.
The winning kick was set up
by Bartow's Jared Lee recover-
ing a War Eagle fumble deep in
Astronaut territory.
Astronaut's comeback attempt
was halted when Jacket line-
backer Justin Edmund grabbed
his first interception of the sea-
son. Then Bartow's offense used
up all but five seconds of the
game clock, with the strong run-
ning of senior Carl Edler and a
costly miscue by the War Eagles.
With Bartow's Jasper Ste-
phens in punt formation, Astro-
naut was flagged 15 yards for
roughing the kicker, giving the
Jackets a fresh set of downs.
Both squads moved the ball
well on their opening drive, but
each team missed field goals.
Then the defenses stepped up
and controlled the game, leaving
the first half scoreless.
Bartow's Phillip Jackson
picked off his sixth pass of the
year in the final seconds of the
first half.


The Arthritis Foundation will
host its annual Jingle Bell Run/
Walk for Arthritis at Fred How-
ard Park in Tarpon Springs on
Dec. 2.
Registration begins at 6:30
a.m. with a 7:30 a.m. race start.

clude a 5K competitive run and
one-mile fitness walk to encour-
age communities to get into the
holiday spirit. Participants wear
jingle bells on their shoes as they

Awards are to be given to the

Bartow Intimidators 14 and
under Girls Fast Pitch Softball
team played in the ISA Double
Delight II at the Auburndale
Speedway Complex this week-
end.
The team was six for six, scor-
ing 76 runs to their opponents'
two runs throughout the tourna-
ment.
Taylor Wagner pitched a no-
hitter and Melissa Lanier
pitched a perfect+ game on Satur-
day.
Ericka Fox batted nine for 11.
They beat the Osceola Overdrive
in the championship game 7-0.
The team is coached by Rich-


Astronaut broke the scoreless
tie midway through the third
quarter.
Following a partially blocked
Yellow Jacket punt, the War Ea-
gles had excellent field position
on Bartow's 37-yard line.
After five plays and a Bartow
pass-interference penalty, senior
War Eagle kicker Josh Hostetler
split the uprights with a 28-yard
field goal.
The Jacket's next possession,
ended on an interception by de-
fensive back Alexander James.
The turnover did not result in
points for Astronaut, -as Hos-
tetler missed his second field
goal of the night, this time from
47 yards out.
Bartow took over on its own
20-yard line, but was unable to
advance the ball and were forced
to punt. Stephens' punt was
blocked, scooped up by Dominic
Harris, and returned four yards
for Astronaut's only touchdown
of the game, early in the fourth
quarter.
The extra point kick missed
and would prove to be costly.
Trailing 9-0, and not having
much success on offense, Bartow
began their next possession on
their own 26-yard line.
Behind the running of Edler
'and Jackson, and a pass of 31-
yards from Devarious Cook to
Malcolm Johnson, the Yellow
Jackets moved the ball down to
the War Eagle four-yard line.
On fourth and goal, Cook
tossed a pass into the end zone,
which fell incomplete. However,
Astronaut was flagged with pass
interference, and two plays later,
Cook pushed his way across the
goal line for Bartow's first
points.
The drive covered 74 yards,


fastest male and female runners
in seven different age categories.
All will enjoy free food and bev-
erages after the run.
A long sleeve race T-shirt is
guaranteed with pre-registra-
tion.
The race fee is $20 for early
registrants and $25 on the day of
the race with discounts for stu-
dents.

utes.
Moments later, Jacket defen-
sive lineman Ledell Wilson
stripped the Astronaut ball car-
rier and Lee pounced on the
loose ball at the War Eagle 12-
yard line. Three Edler runs
later, Delph was set up for the
game-winning field goal.
"We all feel great," Delph
said. "I told the guys, just get me
close enough, and I got it."
There's not ,much time for
celebrating as Bartow, 8-3, pre-
pares for the regional semifinal

brated their traditional Filipino
culture and the abundance of op-
portuiities afforded to them by
living in the United States with
a festive dinner-dance sponsored
by the Filipino American Asso-

(FAAPCO).
Staged at the Four Points Ho-

drew more than 200 members of
the rapidly-growing Polk County
Filipino-American community,
as well as many non-Filipino
friends of FAAPCO from
throughout Polk County and
elsewhere in Central Florida.
Highlights included the induc-
tion of FAAPCO's new slate of of-
ficers and directors headed by
President Dr. Manny Jain of
Winter Haven, and traditional
Filipino dances performed by the
newly-formed FAAPCO Dancers.
Musical entertainment was
provided by Rhythm in Motion, a
three-piece band from Jackson-
ville, and by Dr. Tony Rosa of
Davenport, who sang "Copaca-
bana."
The program began with
David Pagan leading everyone in
the singing of "The Star Span-
