Main Street Disruption,



Development Angst



Were Top Stories of '06


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Associate Publisher

Early in 2005, work began on
the redesign on Main Street in
downtown Bartow, the city's
largest public beautification pro-
ject ever.
In mid-year, fire destroyed the
former Tate-Phillips Hardware
Store and Ritz Theater buildings,
forcing closure of the street for
several weeks and throwing the
finely-tuned project off schedule.
As the project neared comple-
tion and the year end approached,


Should the Bartow city com-
mission limit public input on
ordinances it is adopting, or
encourage even more input than
it now receives?
Commissioners debated that
topic after receiving for study a
proposal from' City Atty. George
Dunlap on prohibiting audience
comment on first reading and
establishing time limits in the
public hearings required at sec-
ond reading.
He asked each commissioner
to submit a written response to
his proposal.
He said that if the commission
allows the public to comment on
"quasi-judicial proceedings" -
primarily zoning and land use
issues on first reading, it
should advertise public hearings
"so that the other side can be
heard."


major cracks widened in the old
Philip's Department Store build-
ing, the owner sued the city and
the Main Street contractor, and
work was halted lest the heavy
vibration of milling Main Street
cause further deterioration, or
even collapse of the building.
For most of 2006, the west-
bound lane of the 300 block of
East Main Street was closed,
putting still more pressure on
Main Street merchants whose
business already was flagging
due to disruption of both vehicu-
lar and pedestrian traffic.
Lawsuits were filed, hearings


Bartow's Top 10 Stories

Of 2006 at a Glance


No. 1: Main Street traffic
disrupted for most of .the year
over concerns about stability of
Philip's Building.
No. 2: Growth policies,
development plans cause angst
for residents and developers.
No. 3: Phosphate industry
continues to shrink as Mosaic
closes one mine, two plants.
No. 4: Election ends all-
male, all-GOP county commis-
sion.
No. 5: Nelson Serrano con-
victed of Bartow's only mass
murder.


No. 6: Peace River Estates
homes in flood zone are pur-
chased, demolished.
No. 7: Summerlin Academy
opens on Bartow High School
campus.
No. 8: Bartow Memorial
Stadium condemned, razed,
after cracks are discovered.
No. 9: Lady Jackets win
unprecedented fifth consecutive
state softball title.
No. 10: The Polk County
Democrat is sold after 75 years,
four generations in one family.


Commissioner Brian Hinton
said that many cities conduct
public hearings on both first and
second reading of ordinances.
Commissioner Leo Longworth
said that the commission seldom
gets public input at first reading,
and added, "I feel strongly that
we should allow public hearings
on first reading."
He said he doesn't like
Dunlap's proposal that commis-
sioners vote to pass ordinances on
first reading, even if they plan to
vote against them on second
reading.
Dunlap said some cities don't
take a vote on first reading, but
simply vote to schedule an ordi-
nance for a public hearing on sec-
ond reading.
"Put it in place for a fewv
months and see if it works," he
urged the commission.


were held, settlements were nego-
tiated, and shortly before year's
end, shoring up of the building
began, followed by renovation
that continued into th& dawn of
2007.
Disruption of Main Street for a
second year was Bartow's top
story of 2006.
No. 2: Growth Policies
Growth policies and develop-
ment plans created angst for both
residents and developers, fre-
quent 3-to-2 splits on both the
zoning and planning board and
the city commission, and plenty of
extra work for lawyers.
The preponderance of code
minimum subdivisions devel-
oped with the smallest lots and
smallest homes allowed by the
city code brought strident
protests, especially from neigh-
bors living on nearby larger, gen-
erally rural tracts.
Neighbors filed and settled a
lawsuit against the Silver
Companies development between
U.S. Highway 98 and E.F. Griffin
Road. Highland Cassidy, the
developer seeking approval for
Wind Meadows South subdivision
on E.F. Griffin Road, lost two
efforts to win city commission
approval of its plans, and sued
both times.
The commission cracked down
on the growing number of subdi-
visions being served by septic
tanks because city sewer lines are
not available.
And the zoning board and the
city commission held a series of
meetings to try to arrive at con-
sensus on development policies,
but by year's end, had reached no
major decisions.
No. 3: Mosaic Closures
The Mosaic Company the
last company still operating in
Polk County's-once vibrant phos-
phate mining industry -
announced that it would close one
phosphate mine and two chemical
manufacturing plants.
The closures eliminated 700
phosphate industry jobs, leaving
about 3,000 people employed in a
phosphate industry that was once
the county's chief employer.
No. 4: Election
Polk County voters ended the
all-male, all-Republican member-
ship of the Polk County commis-
sion by electing Democrat Jean
Read to the seat previously held
by Paul Senft. Early in his elec-
tion campaign, Senft withdrew
from the race, citing the bitter
nature of the campaign launched
by Bruce Parker, a former mem-
ber of the commission.
In the end, voters chose Mrs.
Reed over Parker, and re-elected


Carver Center Gym Ribbon-Cutting Jan. 15


Fifteen months after the groundbreaking cere-
mony for Carver Recreation Center's phase one pro-
ject, new gymnasium, a ribbon-cutting is planned to
celebrate its completion. Everett Whitehead and
Sons of Winter Haven, contractor, has completed
the construction of the 13,000-square foot gymnasi-
um.
The original Carver Center began in 1952 with
construction of a swimming pool, followed around
1960 with a meeting hall with a small stage, and a


small kitchen. The present Carver gym was built in
1970. The pool was demolished a few years ago, and
the new gym is built on the old pool location.
The ribbon-cutting will be held in conjunction
with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Jan. 15, at 1I.
a.m., at the new gym at 520 S. Idlewood Avenu'e.

Bartow Chamber of Commerce events, call 533-

Randy Wilkinson in a general
election contest with former com-
missioner Robert Conners.
No. 5: Serrano Convicted
On Dec. 3, 1997, four people
were found shot to death at the
Erie Manufacturing plant on
County Road 555. It was Bartow's
only mass murder. After years in
which it seemed the killer might
never be brought to justice,
Nelson Serrano was extradited
from Ecuador to face trial for the
murder of three previous busi-
ness associates and the wife of
one of them, who apparently had
the misfortune to walk into the
business at the wrong time.
Serrano was convicted of all
four murders, and the jury voted
9-to-3 to recommend the death
penalty. The decision on his pun-
ishment has not yet been decided.
No. 6: Peace River Estates
Historically, government help
for flooded areas has consisted of
draining the area and helping
residents repair or rebuild their
homes. It is a.cycle, that some-
times repeats itself.
Withthte backing of the federal
government, the Polk County
commission instead bought and
tore down homes near Peace
River that have flooded at least
three times.
No. 7: Summerlin Academy
Summerlin Academy, a school
of choice with a military-style cur-
riculum and sense of discipline,
opened on the campus of Bartow
High School.
Though not a military prep
school, Summerlin Academy has
many of the trappings of one,
with a curriculum that offers
challenges seldom found in public
high schools.
No. 8: Stadium Condemned
Days before the start of the
2006 football season, major
cracks were discovered on the
"home side" of Bartow Memorial
Stadium. The structure was
deemed to be unsafe, and the
Yellow Jackets' "home" games
were all played on the road.
By year's end, the stadium had
been razed, and plans are in place
to rebuild it before Graduation
Day.
No. 9: Lady Jackets
The Bartow High School Lady
Jackets softball team won an

Bartow's identity as the City of Oaks and Azaleas is proclaimed
on new black and white signs being installed on Main Street and the
historic district. The signs, being attached to light poles, also have a
depiction of the old courthouse and the city's year of establishment,
1851. Mike Caraballo hands one of the signs to Rodney Long for
installation. They are part of a team from Design Communications,

History on Founders Day Holy Trinity


The 117th Founders Day ob-
servation at Associate Reformed
Presbyterian Church in Bartow
will be held Wednesday at 6:45
p.m., Jan. 10, when Rev. Rob
Patrick will trace the history of
the ARP church.
The church was organized un-
der the auspices of the Second
Presbytery by the Reverend C.S.
Young, Jan. 12, 1890, with 15
charter members.
Original construction began
in 1892 and was built at a cost of
$4,500. Erection of the present
church building, located at 205
East Stanford St., was begun in
1925 and dedicated on June 20,
1926. By that date, membership
had grown to 156.
A modernization and renova-
tion of the church plant was un-
dertaken in 1973 and in 1985 an
addition was completed which
included an elevator, fellowship
hall, kitchen, choir room, young
people's meeting rooms, confer-
ence room/library, and office
suite.


The latest renovation of the
ARP church plant was completed
in 2000 and mortar was replaced
between bricks of the older part
of the building in 2006. The con-
gregation of family members is
now close to 500, church records
indicate.
On the 103rd church anniver-
sary, the fellowship hall was
named in memory of former pas-
tor Dr. Grady R. Oates.
Ministers who have served
the church as installed pastors
since its organization are: D.G.
Phillips, 1892-1896; E.B. Ken-
nedy, 1889-1905; W.A. M.
Plaxco, 1905-1910; N.E. Smith,
1911-1923; J.N. Leslie, 1924-
1927; J.L. Oates, 1928-1943;
A.M. Rogers, 1944-1950; J.C.
Smith, 1950-1953; R.H. Schutte,
1955-1957; J.P. Pressly, 1957-
1965;. Grady R. Oates, 1965-
1992; Rev. Dr. John H. Ball, III,
1992-2005; Rev. Charles Clendi-
nen, interim pastor,2005-2006;

CRA Funding Is Improving


Main Street Appearance


There are some happy occasions in
which a relatively small amount of money
cah do a lot of good.
Despite the well-known problems with
the Main Street project, Bartow's down-
town merchant community is looking bet-
ter and better.
The most recent improvement is the sod-
ding a week ago of the half-block on which
the old Tate-Phillips Hardware Store, Ritz,
Theater, City Jewelry Store and Till Office
Supply were located. Those historic build-
ings were destroyed by a fire a year-and-a-
half ago, leaving a gaping hole on Main
Street as a grim reminder of that disaster.
The Community Redevelopment
Agency paid to have the lot sodded at a
cost of less than $10,000, transforming that
barren piece of real estate into something
of a mini-plaza.
In exchange for CRA funding, the
owner, Nelle Kennedy Stuart Terry, agreed
to allow the CRA to use the lot for commu-
nity events. Among such events, according
to Jim Duane, executive director of the
CRA, might be showing of movies on
Saturday night, using the wall of the build-
ing next door as a giant outdoor screen.
The CRA offers facade grants of up to
$10,000 to improve the appearance of
downtown buildings. One such project is
the redesign and painting of the two-story
building at the northeast corner of Main
Street and Florida Avenue.
On a much larger scale, the CRA is help-
ing the owners shore up, then renovate the
old Philip's Department Store building,
which showed serious structural damage
during what was to have been the closing
weeks of the Main Street redesign project
more than a year ago. Whether there was a
cause-and-effect relationship will be
decided in court.
Community Redevelopment Agencies
are authorized by the Florida Legislature
to alleviate "slum and blight" conditions.
Those harsh terms can be and have
been applied liberally by local govern-


ments. One entire city in Polk County
declared itself to be a CRA district, taking
in its golf course as part of its "slum and
blight" boundaries.
The concept behind CRAs is to encour-
age redevelopment, with public limprove-
ments financed by the increased property
taxes which are generated when improve-
ments are made.
If a building is improved to the extent
that the property tax bill is doubled, 90
percent of the new tax revenue that would
go to the city and the county instead goes
to the CRA. (School taxes are not impacted
by this "tax increment financing.")
This money, in turn, is used to enhance
the property within the CRA district,
which serves as a stimulus for still more
private investment.
It is a self-help concept that can produce
dramatic results.
In Bartow, those dramatic results
include the multimillion-dollar Main
Street redesign project, which created a
more pedestrian-friendly, "old Florida"
look in the core of the city.
The CRA board is wise to have allocated
part of the money for less expensive
improvements, such as the facade
improvements and the sodding of the
vacant half-block.
Bartow's CRA is showing excellent
stewardship of the funds being generated
by downtown improvements.

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

All This, and I'm Not Even Dead


S I was going to write about
something else today but I've got
to write what's on my heart.
Columnists are like that; it's
not always pretty, but that's what
you get.
In the past three-and-a-half
weeks, since we announced -
first to our staff, then to our com-
munities that Mary and I were
selling Frisbie Publishing Co. to
Sun Coast Media Group, the
response has been nothing short
Sof humbling.
Usually, you have to be dead
to hear people say such nice
things about you., Mary and I
have the privilege of hearing
them while we're alive, a status
we intend to maintain indefinite-
Sly.
I am truly humbled by the
number of people who told me
they cried when they read our
announcement. I don't like to
make people cry, but crying is
okay. I will be 66 next week, and I
still shed a few tears on particu-
larly emotional occasions.
I shed a few when I read Dawn
Wade's commentary on her reac-
tion when I told her it was time to
change the copyright notice on
the front page from Frisbie
Publishing Co. to Sun Coast
Media Group.
It's only been a week I
know enough to keep things in
perspective but as a newly-
Sminted Sun Coast journalist, I
have found the transition to be
smoother than I had expected.
Our primary point of contact
with our new owners has been
Richard Hackney, Sun Coast's
vice-president for operations. He
has become, temporarily, a mem-
ber of our staff, and as such, of
our extended family. Every pro-
posal he has made has been pre-
ceded by: "If you agree," or "If
it's okay with you." These guys
did not come here to throw their
weight around.
One of the limitations of a fam-


ily-owned business is that we
don't have a lot of training
resources to call on. I can teach
our pressroom staff everything I
know about running a press in
two or three days. Okay, maybe a
week or two.
You don't become a pressman
in a week or two.
Sun Coast has sent two of their
top pressmen to work with our
folks, spotting problems we did-
n't even know existed, and solv-
ing them with a few turns of a
wrench or a couple of sprays of
lubricant.
In the next three months, we
will begin producing all pages on
a device called an Imagesetter. I
bought it used, and nobody on
our staff could figure out how it
works.
Don't ask me why I bought it
under those conditions; it seemed
like a good idea at the time, okay?
(If you really want to know, it
was a package deal with a piece
of equipment that we really need-
ed.)
Richard knows how to fire it
up. With the Imagesetter in use,
our production process will be
speeded up. Maybe you'll get
your paper delivered a little earli-
er (I know that is important to
you) and our color quality will
improve.
This week, we get a general
manager, the position I held 25
years ago, before I became pub-
lisher. His name is Bob Bobber,
and he will do a great job.
David Dunn-Rankin -I con-
sider him my boss, but he says
that since I'm to go on Sun
Coast's board of directors, I am
his boss nominated Bob for the
job, but told me the final decision
was mine.
I interviewed Bob for an hour
or so, and with all due respect to
family relationships, I probably
know more about him than his
mother does, at least when it
comes to his newspaper manage-


ment philosophy.
Bob's greatest skills are in ad
sales and circulation, those areas
in which I am weakest. There, I
said it: those areas in which I am
weakest. It's okay to admit stuff
like that.
Bob and I will manage as a
team.
When I asked him how he
envisioned our working relation-
ship, he replied:
"I'm easy to get along with; I
don't know about you." We'll get
along fine.
In the weeks ahead, our com-
munities of Bartow, Lake Wales
and Fort Meade will get to know
him, as you have come to know
me.
David Dunn-Rankin, who car-
ries the title of publisher and will
count on me as associate publish-
er and Bob as GM to make things
happen for Sun Coast, will visit
occasionally. Don't let the bow tie
fool you; you'll like him.
My greatest point of pride is
that every member of our staff
has chosen to remain with us in
this transition; that was impor-
tant to David and to me.
A few weeks ago, Sun Coast's
chief accountant asked me:
"How many employees will
we lose when you announce the
sale?"
"None, if they trust me," I
replied.
When Mary and I first dis-
cussed the parameters of the sale
with Derek and David Dunn-
Rankin, we told them our con-
cern was for our communities,
our newspapers, and our staff.
Financial considerations, while
not unimportant, were sec-
ondary.
It's been a great experience,
and it will continue to be a great
experience.
Thanks to all of you who have
had such great things to say to
Mary and me. And thanks be to
God; we are richly blessed.

OUR READERS SAY

It Will Be Different


BARTOW It is with a heavy
heart, and a heavy everything
else, that I realize that our illustri-
ous editor and publisher of the
finest hometown news paper in
the country has decided to join
the ranks of us overworked and
under-appreciated 10 percenters.
It seems that all of the things I
have come to enjoy down
through the years are a-changing,
and I really ain't in favor of it.
Just when I start to savor the feel-
ing of comfortable familiarity,
somebody goes and changes
things.
I don't recall S. L. asking if it
was OK for him to go and do this;
he just went and did it. Just


because he was overworked, and
greatly appreciated, didn't quali-
fy him to go and do this.
No matter how good the new
team is, it won't be the same.
I will miss the personal touch,
humor, honesty and integrity of a
dedicated newsman who loves
his work and his community. His
"Thinking Out Loud" column is a
light in the gloom of the day's
news.
The coverage of the things that
happen in a small town requires a
special touch, a sensitivity and
involvement in the community.
His editorials have given us
insight into the things our com-
munity should be doing, or not,


and serve as a watchdog of our
city government. Ii
I will continue to look forward .. '
to receiving The Democrat, but it.
will be different.
I wish for S.L. and Mary all the
best in their new endeavors and
know they will still have an
imprint on our community.
Thanks for the many years of
being there.
God speed and "May the Wind
Be At Your Backs."

Guest Column
By GREG WHEELS
A few days ago, I had a job that
was bigger than I wished to tack-
le alone.
Thankfully my friend Dennis
has a son who is in college. He
had recently told me that Dillion
sure needed something to do,
besides not much of nothing,
while he was out of school for the
holidays.
Dennis used to help me work,
but he is over 50 now and has
decided that crawling under
houses is no longer worth what-
ever I pay him.
I picked the young man up at 6
in the morning. With sleepy eyes
he tells me that he is not accus-
tomed to getting up so early.
Dennis says that his son has lived
the easy life; he wants him to find
out what working for a living is
all about.
He had come to the right place
and the right man with his prob-
lem; if you look termite work up


in the dictionary, you will see that
it refers you to "Hard work."
For conversational purposes, I
ask the boy how he is doing in
school. It is great, he tells me; he
does admit that he needs to work
on his grades.
Dillion seems like a nice young
man, he is tall, lean, and soft spo-
ken. I do not notice any earrings
or tattoos.
We are sitting in the early
morning traffic when I notice that
the car in front of us has an
antique tag. Hey look at that car I
say to my passenger; there is no
way that it can be an antique.
Dillion knows his cars; he says
that it is an '84 Cadillac, 22 years
old, which makes it older than
dirt. I glanced over at him. What
are you talking about boy? I :m.
twice again as old as that car. I
have winter coats older than that
car, are you iying that I am dou-
ble dirt old?
I have to hand it to Dennis; he
has taught his boy some things.


Do not offend the boss. Dillion
just grins.
It just does not seem possible
to me that an '84 Cadillac can be
called an antique. The car looked
fairly new. Sixties model cars
should not even be called
antiques; I remember when they
were new cars. In my eyes a car
must be from the thirties or for-
ties to be considered old. I guess
that it is just a matter of perspec-
tive.
Dillion drilled concrete, dug
trenches and cleaned trash out
from under the house that we
were working on. He helped me
pour 20 bags of concrete and did
everything that I asked of him.
I worked right beside him all
day and ran circles around him.
Once he told me that I was mak-
ing him dizzy.
As the day grew longer, I did
notice that he was growing slow-
er. By the time that we were fin-
ished, the back of his jeans,
among other things, were practi-


cally dragging the ground behind
him. It was almost all that he
could do to pull himself up into
my truck.
What's wrong young man? I
inquired of him. He just'shook his
head. Weakly he explained that
he had never been so tired in his
entire life. He wanted to know
how I was still moving after all of
these years of termite work.
Old man strength, I told him.
The truth be known, I was a tired
doggie, but I had no intention of
letting him in on this secret.
Except for the radio, there was
silence during most of the trip
home. Dillion finally spoke up,
telling f~e that he knew one
thing. What is that? I asked him.
He replied that he was going
to go back to college and study
three or four times harder than he
had ever studied.
This so-called working for a
living was not as much fun as he
thought it was going to be.

ment of international baseball

Pirates, Matt Diaz of the Atlanta
Braves, and Lance Niekro of the
San Francisco Giants, as well as
numerous professional baseball

group of international players to
come from Ghana. Players and
coaches from the African na-
tion's fledgling baseball program
will be gaining valuable knowl-
edge and experience from Smith
and LBA's professional training
staff.
Training is expected to begin
as early as the first quarter of
2007.
"We're delighted to be able to
offer Reggie's expertise and guid-
ance to these enthusiastic inter-
national players," said Nolan.

ball instructors in the business
and we are thrilled with the op-
portunity to create and establish
a world class instructional pro-
gram under his guidance.
"We are committed to estab-
lishing LBA as the destination
for baseball, softball and fitness

of our most prized assets:"

By BETTY DEBNAM
from The Mini Page by Betty Debnam 205 The Mii Page Pushing Company ic.
Supplement to The Polk County Democrat And The Fort Meade Leader


Getting ideas across about...


Bridges

To find out about bridges, The Mini
Page visited the educational staff at
the National Building Museum in
Washington, D.C. They suggested we
talk with a civil engineer, Amy
Buehler. Civil engineers plan and
supervise the building of bridges,
buildings and other structures.
Here is some of
what Amy told us:
Engineers identify
and solve problems. This b
SWhat they do helps
to improve the way Bri
k we live. En


A cable-stayed,
or supported,
bridge carries the
roadway with
diagonal cables
stretched
between the
roadway and
pylons (tall
towers).
The Sunshine
Skyway Bridge
crosses Tampa
Bay in Florida.


ridge looks like a giant sailing ship sitting in the water.


jges use gravity, compression and tension
gineers use the science of physics to see how objects relate to one another.


Gravity is a force
that pulls an object
toward the Earth. It
influences everything i
in the world. It acts
on everything.


Compression
is a pushing
force. If you stand
on a pile of books,
the books will
push together.


Tension. If you
take a rubber band
and stretch it apart,
that rubber band is
being pulled apart by
tension.


In bridges, the columns are
compressed, or pushed upon.


Bridges are built so
they can handle the
tension, or pulling-apart
stress, on the materials of
which a bridge is made.


Engineers use many skills. They
must inow math and science. They
must know how to communicate their
ideas to others.
Engineers also must be creative and
artistic to find new ways of doing
things that people enjoy and like
to use.


Bridge words to know:




Dead load: the weight of the
bridge itself, including such things as
concrete, steel and wood.


--- -
Live load: the weight of the many
loads that move across th-- r iedge,
such as cars, trucks and pe p.le.

Five Bridge Types

These five different bridge types are built to handle tension the pulling apart tension
and compression the pushing together.


Beam bridges
Half of the bridges in the
United States are beam
bridges. They have vertical
(up and down) piers and
horizontal (sideways)
beams. This type is the
world's oldest. These
bridges can be long, but
the span between piers is
often short.

bridge is over land. the coast of Florida. It really is seven miles long.


The weight of
the live load
compresses on
the top and
down the piers.
The tension is on
the underside of
the bridge.


Arch bridges
The Romans were the first
to build these bridges
centuries ago. They are
very strong and pleasing to
look at. Arch bridges can
be built of many materials.

Cable-stayed bridges

The compression
force is greatest at
the top of the arch.
The tension force is
greatest at the
bottom.


Cable-stayed
bridges were
first built in
the 1950s'
when new
materials and
ways of
building
bridges were
developed.
They have
one or two
towers with
cables
attached.


Cable-stayed
bridges have
no piers
between the
towers so
ships can sail
under them.

Truss bridges
Truss bridges are very
strong and are often
used as railroad bridges.
They are made with
triangles that are locked
together.


The triangles in the
bridge carry both the
compression and the
tension forces. Engineers
often use the triangle
shape because it is very
strong and rigid.


Suspension bridges


Suspension bridges such
as the Brooklyn Bridge are
often long. They cost a lot
of money because they
take such a long time to
build. They are often built
over harbors because ships
can sail underneath


The cables carry the force
of compression to the two
towers. The cables also
carry the tension forces.
