Public Defender Accuses State of 'Judge-Shopping'


:'By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
associateat e Publisher

^iB: a sometimes stinging
defense of Circuit Judge Susan
Roberts, the public defender's
ffSiM:efiled a pleading Friday with
tlit:Second District Court of
Appeal calling efforts by the state
atfofiey's office to remove Judge
fRberts from hearing 26 murder
cases 'a "heavy-handed attempt to
shop for its judges."


The state attorney's office has
filed a series of motions seeking to
have Judge Roberts removed from
hearing 22 Polk County murder
cases and four Highlands County
murder cases.
The state first filed a motion
asking Judge Roberts to recuse
herself from hearing murder
cases, asserting that it "fears it
will not receive a fair trial ...
because the Court has a predispo-
sition to avoid the possibility of


potential appellate issues which
renders her incapable or unwill-
ing to look at legal issues with a
fair and unbiased eye and there-
fore base her rulings on the law."
When Judge Roberts denied
that motion, the state appealed
the ruling to the Second DCA,
seeking a writ of prohibition to
forbid the judge from hearing the
cases. That court denied that writ
in 20 cases, but left open the issue
of six other cases. In those cases,


two detectives who might be
called as witnesses are involved
in an unrelated investigation into
criminal allegations against the
judge's son, Carson Brawley.
It was in response to that
action by the DCA that the public
defender's office filed a motion
opposing the state's efforts,
because two defendants, Benigno
Kaiu and Ervin Neal, are repre-
sented by the public defender.
Those are two of the six cases


which the DCA agreed to review
further.
The public defender's 12-page
response said that Judge Roberts
has served for more than 31 years
and has handled thousands of
criminal cases, calling her service
a "long and distinguished tenure
on the bench." It noted that she
has sentenced at least two defen-
dants to death.
The motion said that the
defense opposes the writ of prohi-


bition "not because Judge Roberts
is inclined to do them any favors,"
but because the state's action to
have another judge try the cases
"is prejudicial to the fair adminis-
tration of justice and (an) anathe-
ma to our essential core value:
judicial independence."
It alleges that she "has recent-
ly fallen into disfavor with the
State Attorney" who "now .deems

State Plans Would Reduce

Revenue In Polk By $78 Million


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

Two plans being considered by
the.state will see fewer dollars in
Polk County if approved.
The first, a proposal to limit
property taxes, and the second,


which would replace taxes on
homestead property with a sales
tax, could cost the county $78.4
million, or more than 30 percent
of the operational budget.
Both plans are in very early
stages, Fran McAskill, director of
financial and strategic planning,
told commissioners Wednesday.

tinue through Friday at Polk County Agricultural Center in Bartow.

The proposals would force
counties to compute the village
rate using a formula based on
2000-01 numbers. This would
lower the county's rate to 6.215
mills, down from 8.273.
"This would result in a loss of
$78.4 million," she said.
The second proposal would
allow for an increase in sales
taxes, but Ms. McAskill said it
was her understanding the
increase would not compensate
for the loss.
The sales tax inoney would
only be used to compensate for
lost money in homesteaded prop-
erty, which would no longer con-
tribute taxes.
As the village rate for the
county municipal service taxing
units for parks and libraries are
less than two years old, they
would not be affected until next
year, but Ms. McAskill said they
too would be cut under the pro-
posal.
Only debt service, currently
.06 mills, would remain the
same.
Commissioners seemed less
than thrilled with either propos-
al.
Commissioner Bob English
suggested the county could make
up some of the money by refusing
to send the state required money
for mandated projects.
"Perhaps we could reduce the
amount we send for the
Department of Juvenile Justice
services," he said.
"There are only 27 more
unfunded mandates from the
state this year," Commissioner
Jack Myers said. "This is a good
year. They were bragging about
it in Tallahassee."
English said with the sheriff's
office budget alone at more than
$100 million, the county would
have to seek serious cuts.
"If I'm voting for this it would
be 30 percent across the board in
all departments," Myers said.


Carol Frye of Lakeland won Best in Show in the 36th annual
Bloomin' Arts Festival with her display of mixed media work. She has
exhibited in four or five Bloonin' Arts Festivals and won various
awards; this was her first Best in Show in the Bartow show. She has
won that distinction in eight other shows, and was selected by Water
Color Magic magazine as one of the 26 best watermedia artists in the
nation in 2006. She also designed this year's Bloomin' Arts T-shirt,
which she's wearing. (More photos and a complete winner's list will be

Many improvements to down-
town Bartow are still to come,
Duane said, including crosswalks
and the restructuring of the
Broadway and Main Street inter-
section.
"We are trying to bring back
some small downtown business-
es," he said.
He pointed to planned housing
in East Bartow, the possibility of
an Italian restaurant on Main
Street, completion of the
O'Toole/McKinley building on
Main, upcoming construction of a
new road to Bartow Regional
Hospital, and multiple planned


activities in downtown Bartow as
functions in which CRA takes a
leading role.
Polk County provides 46 per-
cent of income for CRA: 24 per-
cent is from the City of Bartow, 27
percent from fund receipts, and
three percent from interest.
Expenses include 14 percent for
operations, 33 percent to capital,
37 percent for grants, and 16 per-
cent for debt service.
Duane also said Polk County
officials have discussed a parking
garage in Bartow near the county
administration building.
The speaker was introduced by
Richard Frisbie.

What a wonderful time we had
at the Fort Meade Historical
Museum the other day as we
unveiled the young Seminole
Indian Chief Red Feather and
gave him a grand welcome to our
Museum.
Thanks to the generosity of
Jim and Ladonna Hancock for the
colorful outfit for the chief to
wear; and to Bob and June
Shirley for the mannequin to rep-
resent the chief.
Chief Red Feather will remain
in place in the entry to greet all
who come through the front door.
He is adorned with his traditional
red feather in his wraparound
hat, which is very handsome. You
can't miss him. We, invite you to
visit him and all the other
Museum artifacts.
It seems to be very popular
these days to have a recreation
trail for walking or biking.
Evidently, there's grant money
plus gifts to make these trails
possible. I think we should have a
Fort Meade Trail that extends
from Fort Meade to Bartow. It
could start at the Museum and
travel to Homeland through
Heritage Park and then into
Bartow along the old road from
Homeland to Bartow.
We are the oldest town in Polk
County, named for one of the most
prominent soldiers in United
States' history. Our community
sprang up at the site of two
Seminole Indian villages.
Certainly we should be put on the
map by having an historical
recreation trail name The Fort
Meade Trail,
About two weeks ago, we were
putting plans into motion to make
our Museum grounds look pretti-
er with plants and blooming flow-
ers. One afternoon, plants were
set in one of the flowerbeds in the
backyard. The next morning we
checked on the plants to water
them. What a surprise we found.
Most of the plants had been dug
up and hauled off, leaving empty
holes.
The nerve of these vandals is

Florida Can't Relax


Open Records Leadership


Florida ranks near the top when it comes
to states that champion public access to
government, an accomplishment that is
constantly under attack by those who pre-
fer secrecy.
Florida's reputation as a state that
prefers open government over secrecy is
well established, and Gov. Charlie Crist is
certainly a friend of the state's
Government in the Sunshine laws. Given
all that, the public cannot afford to let
down its guard as those who advocate
restraints on public access continue to chip
away at the right of access to government
records.
Crist's election was good news for those
who support open government. The for-
mer state attorney general was named.the
2005 winner of the Friend of the First
Amendment Award by Florida's First
Amendment Foundation. One of his early
actions as governor was to establish the
Office of Open Government within the
governor's office, with a goal of ensuring
.compliance with the state's sunshine laws.
Pat Gleason, a passionate advocate of
open government, was named a special
counsel to the office, and JoAnn Carrin,
another strong supporter of sunshine in
government, is director.
We believe open government is essential'
to good government. The public's right to
access information on government con-
tracts, on potential laws that will impact
their lives, and on who has contributed
funds to help elect office holders are just a
few of the reasons why our sunshine laws
are so valuable.
To those who complain that
Government in the Sunshine makes the
governing process more difficult, we say:
"So what?"
The purpose of open government is to
make government better for those who are
governed, not easier for those who exer-
cise the powers of government.
Despite Crist's best efforts and all the
good news for lovers of sunshine in gov-
ernment, lawmakers continue to try to
chip away at the public's right to know.
A handful of bills have been introduced
in the fledgling legislative session that


should concern us all. They include:
HB 467 would close public access to
meetings of a search committee of a public
hospital where the selection of candidates
or nominees for the position of CEO is dis-
cussed. Rep. Larry Cretul, R-Gainesville, is
pushing this bill that would allow govern-
ment to hide records and close meetings
relating to who is under consideration to
lead our public hospitals.
HB 1117 would make it a third degree
felony to possess "sensitive personal infor-
mation" without permission. The prohibi-
tion would not apply to corporations, but
it could apply to any individual, such as a
reporter, a spouse, or another family mem-
ber who has possession of another family
member's personal information. This bill
just does not make sense to us.
S**HB 1213 says personal identification
information should always remain private.
It also creates a public records exemption
for any records held by an agency that con-
tain personal identification information on
anyone. If passed, it would appear that this
bill would say that if a murder is commit-
ted in our community, we couldn't report
the name of the person convicted unless
the murderer agreed.
Most of these bills, and others, target
specific exceptions that irritate special
interest groups.
We believe legislators have more impor-
tant issues to tackle in Tallahassee than try-
ing to find ways to get around our sun-
shine laws.

BARTOW On the northern
rim of Mary Holland Park there is
a little loquat tree that is slowly
being overcome by a very large
oak tree.
Through the years this little tree
has struggled to keep its share of
sunshine and has valiantly put
forth its best face to attract atten-
tion to its predicament'Its growth
is one-sided and it has been forced
to lean to the south trying to stay
ahead of the encroachment of its
large neighbor.
In spite of all this, this year it
has put forth an abundance of col-
orful yellow fruit to show it still is
a viable addition to the natural
beauty of the park. Its foliage is a
shiny dark green that serves as a


contrasting background for the
groups of dark yellow fruit hang-
ing in great profusion over the.
tree.
Just to the east of the loquat tree
is a pink crape myrtle that has
bloomed beautifully through the
springs and summers past, but is
in danger of dying because of a
moss infestation.
Last year it struggled to even
leaf out and the bloom was sparse.
So far this year, it has not shown
any signs of coming out yet the
crape myrtles along the main
entrance of the park are healthy
and beautiful.
SOf course there is a big differ-
ence in the care andt al.ention of
those at the entry road and the


"you're on your own" conditions
along the north rim of the park.
It would be a shame to lose
these plants that are a part of the
park for the lack of a little care.
Some pruning of the limbs of the
oak towering over the small
loquat would give it the opportu-
nity to have a fighting chance to
continue to survive on its own.
A de-mossing of the crape myr-
tle could also bring back the beau-
tiful pink ruffle blooms it has had
in the past. These plants have sur-
vived without the watering and
fertilizer bestowed on those at the
entrance and have shown they are
worth saving.

THINKING OUT LOUE

SY'Al]

Life not challenging enough
for you lately?
S r Car getting good gas mileage?
S AS Grass growing, but not too
S fast?


Staying on your diet?
Cable never goes out during
your favorite show?
Computer hasn't crashed for
more than a week?
The Spinning Beachball of
Death hasn't tied up your com-
puter screen for 10 minutes at a
time lately?
Then it's time to introduce a
new challenge into your life,
Bunkie.
If all those things are going so
well, you're probably a good can-
didate for the Complaint Free
Challenge.
As reported on the NBC Today
Show a few days ago, a preacher
in Kansas City, Mo., Rev. Will
Bowen, challenged members of
his congregation at Christ Church
Unity to go 21 days without com-
plaining.
Members of his parish, he said,
do too much complaining about
the choice of hymns for Sunday
worship, or the casual dress at
the Saturday night service.
Well before we get any farther
down the road, Bo, let me tell you
that if the good pastor can get the
faithful into church on Saturday
night, he's got nothing to com-
plain about, even if they do.
In the Episcopal Church, of
which I have been a member for
all of my adult life, we complain
about the National Church, the
Bishop, and the Book of Common
Prayer, and anything that isn't

A small, distinguished, erudite
band of professional buzzard
watchers, who are also enthusiasts
of Pioneer Days, made a fortu-
itous discovery when they rolled
into town this year.
These educated and highly-
trained ladies and gentlemen trav-
el the world over seeking out and
studying the mating and social rit-
uals of buzzards.
When they pulled into Pioneer
Park a few weeks ago, they must
have thought they'd died and
gone to buzzard heaven.
For months, almost on a daily
basis, I've observed a phenome-
non I don't understand. Around
noon, hundreds of buzzards begin
to circle the sky above Pioneer
Park in Zolfo Springs. Early in the
afternoon they are high in the sky,
but as the afternoon wanes, they
begin a slow descent.
Everyone knows buzzards will
circle for dead animals. But are
there that many dead animals in
well-tended Pioneer Park, day
after day, for months? It doesn't
seem likely.
Is it possible that certain gasses
seep up from the ground that buz-
zards take for putrid meat? There
must be an answer. I've lived here
all my life and I've never seen

done it."
(How many Episcopalians
does it take to change a light
bulb? Five; one to screw in the
new bulb, and four to reminisce
about how much nicer the old
bulb was.)
As for the Prayer Book, it has-
n't been the same since they elim-
inated the entreaty:
"From ghoulies and ghosties
and long-legged beasties and
things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord deliver us."
Anyway, back to Pastor
Bowen.
He challenged his flock to give
up complaining, criticizing, gos-
siping, and sarcasm for 21 days.
That really shouldn't be all that
difficult, except that he apparent-
ly meant 21 consecutive days.
I've long maintained that I
could walk 100 miles without
breaking a sweat, but it would
take me the better part of two
years to do it.
To keep you on the straight
and narrow, happily so, his con-
gregation now meets every
Saturday to fill orders for purple
no-complaint bracelets. You put
one on when you take the pledge,
and you are supposed to switch it
from one wrist to the other each
time you fall from no-complaint
grace.
And remember, God is watch-
ing.
His Reverence said that it took
him three-and-a-half months to
compile 21 complaint-free days.
Others, he said, have needed
seven months to go three weeks
without falling off the no-com-
plaint wagon.


anything like it.
Late Sunday afternoon, I had to
take my soon-to-be-15-year-old
son, Kyle, back to Bradenton. Off
in the west, the sun shone bright
red as it hung in the air a few feet
above the horizon, making the
cloud formations blaze with color.
When we got as far. as the Peace
River bridge, about a mile from
my house, I remembered some-
thing I'd forgotten and turned
around to go back and get it. The
buzzards were still circling, now
floating only a few feet above the
treetops.
I parked beside my house, ran
in the side door, grabbed a CD off
the table, and ran back outside. In
the few minutes it took us to get
back to Pioneer Park, every buz-
zard had dropped down into the
treetops to roost.
I slowed down and poked
along and we looked out the win-
dows at hundreds of buzzards
that stuck in the tops of trees like
inflated, oblong bowling balls.
I suspect some campers wanted
to move out from beneath them
(for who knows what surprises
buzzards might drop in the
night?) but it was so crowded
there didn't seem to be anywhere
to go.


It must be interesting for out-
of-state visitors to watch the buz-
zards circle in the sky all after-
noon, then drop in to roost right
above them at night. But if I were
among them and I awoke in the
middle of the night and felt like
going for a walk, I think I'd put
my shoes on.
Buzzards are big birds and they
ingest huge portions of roadside
carrion. I'd rather have beach sand
between my toes.
In spite of the buzzard inva-
sion, Pioneer Days seems to be
another huge success. People
come from far and wide and some
cdmp for as long as two weeks for
the event.
Pioneer Days has become a big
deal for Zolfo Springs and Hardee
County. It has something for
everyone, including such famous
and. prestigious organizations as
"Save the Buzzards!" LDC;
"Buzzard Watch in America,"
LLC; and "Buzzard Lovers of the
World," LSD.

OUR READERS SAY

A Plea for a Little Tree Trimming


)kay?
Those who make the grade can
trade in their purple bracelets for
a Certificate of Happiness at his
church.
How you can fly to Kansas
City under the rules covering air-
line travel today and not com-
plain is a mystery to me.
Then again, since you suppos-
edly have achieved your com-
plaint-free status before buying
your ticket, I guess you can com-
plain about packing restrictions,
carry-on bag restrictions, and air-
line seats that are sized more for
your skinny carry-on bag than for
your airline passenger body, and
still get your sheepskin.
Thus far, the happy bracelet-
senders at Christ Church Unity
have filled orders for 126,000
bracelets from as far away as
South Africa and Australia.
The reverend figures that if the
average person complains 20
times a day for .30 days, the
126,000 bracelets have stifled a
number of complaints that he
computes imprecisely to be "mil-
lions and millions."
The'obsessive compulsive in
me required me to come up with
a little closer estimate: 20 com-
plaints a day for 30 days comes to
600 complaints per complainer,
or 75.6 million unuttered com-
plaints for 126,000 reformed sour-
pusses.
I am not easily awed, but that's
a lot of complaints that didn't get
made.
It sounds like a great idea.
Maybe I'll try it some day.
If not in this life, then surely in
the next.

'Judge-Shopping Charged'


(Continued from Page 1A)
her unsuitable to conduct the
people's business in these capital
cases.
"Its pique notwithstanding, its
motion is legally insufficient and
its facts are just plain wrong," the
public defender's filing said.
"The facts alleged in the
State's first series of motions are
demonstrably false; and the facts
alleged in the second motion are
obviously contrived to achieve
the desired result.
"Only in her 31st year on the
bench has she become a target
for this very unusual campaign
by the State of Florida."
In making its case for barring
Judge Roberts from hearing any
more murder trials, the state
attorney's office alleged that:
The judge "made it quite
clear that she rules differently in
homicide cases than in other
cases, which is clearly prejudicial
to the State and an abuse of dis-
cretion." It cited an instance in
which she said she might allow a
piece of evidence in a grand theft
case that she would not allow in
a homicide trial.
Judge Roberts threatened to
declare a mistrial in the Nelson
Serrano murder trial if any fami-
ly members of Serrano's victims
showed emotion while giving tes-
timony. The state attorney called
her warnings "inexcusable and
unnecessary."
In the Serrano trial, the
judge told opposing lawyers that
they could only discuss the trial
proceedings on the record.
The judge showed "preoccu-
pation with appellate review" in
another case when she told a
lawyer in the case, "I don't want
to get reversed."


The judge erred in granting
a directed verdict of acquittal in
another murder case and told the
jurors that she felt the defendant
was guilty but the case might be
overturned on appeal.
Judge Roberts told prosecu-
tors in another murder case that
she thought it "might be a waste
of time" to seek a death sentence
against a 65-year-old defendant
because of the number of years
he would spend on death row
while the sentence was under
appeal.
The public defender's filing
responded to some of those
issues.
In the case in which she
explained to jurors her reasoning
in granting a motion for directed
verdict of appeal, the prosecutor
agreed to her explaining her rea-
soning to the jury.
The state made no objection to
Judge Roberts presiding over the
Serrano case, even though the
defendant is four years older
than the defendant in the case in
which she advised prosecutors
not to seek the death penalty.
"Why has it (the state) not
sought disqualification in the
sentencing of Nelson Serrano?"
the public defender asked.
Much of the public defender's
filing dealt with the matter of an
investigation of Judge Roberts'
son.
The public defender said that
John Aguero, chief of the homi-
cide division at the state attor-
ney's office, "had chosen to partic-
ipate in interviews of two mater-
ial witnesses involved in this
investigation," despite the fact
that as a homicide prosecutor, he
would not be prosecuting the
case.


Some 100 other prosecutors
were available to participate in
the investigation, according to
the public defender's filing.
In the same vein, the
Lakeland Police Dept. had
"dozens of available Lakeland
police officers" to investigate alle-
gations against the judge's son,
but chose two who would be testi-
fying in murder trials scheduled
to come before Judge Roberts.
"If the State was concerned
that exposure to the routine work
of (LPD) detectives Grice and
Kircher might prejudice Judge
Roberts against it, the simple
solution would be to insure that
other equally available and capa-
ble Lakeland police department
officers handle this routine case.
"Of course that simple expedi-
ent would be inconsistent with
the State's avowed goal of remov-
ing Judge Roberts from consider-
ation of these capital cases.
"It is a telling footnote to this
matter that detective Grice was
and remains a witness in the
Serrano case, yet the State has
not found it expedient to seek
disqualification in that capital
case now pending before Judge
Roberts."
Nearly 60 years ago, the
Florida Supreme Court ruled
that "a lawyer cannot deliberate-
ly provoke an incident rendering
the court disqualified to 'proceed
further," the public defender said.
"The law will not allow the
State's ruse to succeed."
In its summary, the public
defender's office filing declared:
"The rules regarding disquali-
fication ... prevent the disquali-
fication process from being
abused for the purposes of judge-
shopping."

The Singing Tower at Historic
Bok Sanctuary will become a
vertical stage when Project
Bandaloop, an aerial dance
troupe from Oakland, Calif., per-
forms high above the audience
on Friday and Saturday, March
16 and 17, at 8 p.m.
During their first public
appearances in Florida, Project
Bandaloop's choreographed flips,
twirls and spins as well as caril-
lon music will mesmerize the
audience during two shows.
Ticket prices are $20-50,
based on row seating.
"Combining the beauty of the
setting, aerial dance and carillon
music will offer an unprecedent-
ed cultural event in central
Florida," Robert P. Sullivan,
Sanctuary president, said.
"Project Bandaloop is widely rec-
ognized as one of the leading aer-
ial and vertical dance companies
in the world so we expect tickets
to sell out very quickly."
Project Bandaloop's perfor-
mance will be choreographed
specifically for the site to explore
the relationship between move-
ment and gravity to stimulate
the viewers' awareness of the
dancers, the architectural mas-
terpiece and the natural environ-
ment.
Amelia Rudolph is founder
and artistic director of Project
Bandaloop. Under Rudolph's
direction, the aerial dancers cre-
ate a synergistic blend of dance,
sport, ritual and environmental
awareness. As they perform,
pairs of dancers are linked by a
single rope that runs from one
dancer up to an anchor point and
down to the other dancer.

Occupational License:



It's Just Another Tax


TEVEN DARR, cele- "Liberty," tries on some of his

arner Southern College (Photo from Warner Southern)
20th year of presenting


What does it mean when a
business represents itself as
"licensed" by local government?
Not much.
In fact, in most cases, it only
means that the business has paid
an occupational license tax.
In compliance with a require-
ment of state law, the Bartow city
commission is changing the ter-
minology from "occupational
license tax" to "business tax," and
the document issued by the city
from "occupational license" to
"business tax receipt."
City Atty. George Dunlap said


the legislation was prompted by
the belief by the public that a
business license implies approval
of the business by local govern-
ment.
An ordinance changing the
terminology was passed by the
city commission on first reading.
It will come up for a public hear-
ing on final reading.
The commission also:
Postponed the commission's
planning retreat until after the
April 3 city election.
Agreed to make appoint-
ments to the Mayor's Youth

Bartow Comcast Executive Karen Wheeler

Inducted Into President's Club In March


Bartow, Municipal Airport
spent down a lot of its surplus
cash to pay for the new terminal
building, but still has more than
$1.1 million in the bank.
"It's a pretty solvent situation,"
the airport's external auditor,
Tiersi Nunez, said after present-
ing the annual audit to the city
commission.
Nunez found no "material
weaknesses" in his audit of the
airport's accounts. He made his
report to the commission, meeting
as the airport authority, at its
first meeting in the new terminal.
The airport staff moved into
the building on Jan. 31. Airport
Mgr. Cynthia Barrow said the air-
port restaurant, to be called the
Bartow Flight Line Grill, will
open as soon as the final regula-
tory inspection is conducted.
Nunez reported that the air-
port had $3,345,098 in operating
revenues in its 2006 fiscal year,
and $3,712,574 in operating
expenses. The expense figure
includes $742,209 in deprecia-
tion.
The primary sources of rev-
enue are industrial park rentals
($1.25 million), and sale of avia-
tion fuel ($1.24 million).


Nunez said that the loss of the
Florida Dept. of Children and
Family Services as an industrial
park tenant accounted for most of
a reduction of $215,000 in indus-
trial park revenues from the pre-
vious year. Sale of aviation fuel
rose $288,000, he said, primarily
reflecting higher fuel costs. Even
so, Tierso told the commission,
"revenues didn't keep up with
fuel cost."
In addition to operating rev-
enues, the. airport received slight-
ly more than $3 million in state
and federal grants.
Beginning next year, new rules
for government audits will forbid
external auditors from making
year-end adjustments to the
financial records of agencies they
audit, which is now a common
practice, Nunez said. The ratio-
nale beyond the new rule is that
it puts the auditor in the position
of auditing his own work, he said.
The result will be that govern-
ment agencies either will have to
make year-end adjustments that
sometimes exceed the skill level
of their financial officers, or the
agencies will have to hire another
CPA firm to make the adjust-
ments.


Mrs. Barrow said that could
cost the airport close to $10,000 a
year in additional accounting
fees.
In other business, the commis-
sion:
Approved the addition of an
eight-foot replica of the World
War II-era insignia of Bartow Air
Base to the mural in the lobby of
the terminal. The additional work
will cost $450.
Ratified a one-year lease of
the airport restaurant to Chris
and Susie Scott, doing business as
C&S Scott Holdings, Inc. The rent
will be $1,300 per month for the
first three months, $2,016.67 per
month for the next three months,
and $2,976.67 per month for the
last six months. The graduated
rent is intended to give the Scotts
time to build up the business.
Approved a funding agree-
ment under which the Florida
Dept. of Transportation will help
pay for additional T-hangars, and
will provide matching funds for
whatever the Federal Aviation
Administration approves for run-
way improvement projects.


Karen Wheeler, Comcast
Spotlight account executive, will
be inducted into the President's
Club the week of March 14th, in
Las Vegas.
Comcast Spotlight President's
Club exists to recognize out-
standing achievement among
sales and operations profession-
als.
Winners earn the President's
Club Award by generating excep-
tional results in sales and opera-
tional accomplishments.
Comcast will honor the win-
ners in Las Vegas from March 14-
18, at the JW Marriott Las Vegas
Resort & Spa.


Ms. Wheeler was been the past
winner of several different sales
contests, such as "Top Account
Executive" of 2000, "Leadership
in Action-Gold Medallion" in
2000, and "Top Account
Executive" in 2002. She has also
won many local sales contest
within her market over the past
seven years.
She is an account executive in
local cable advertising sales in
the Sebring/Bartow market, she
works out of the Bartow office on
Main Street. She has been with
Comcast for a total of seven
years.


CINDY BARROW, executive director of the
Bartow Municipal Airport, gave the Bartow
Chamber's Committee of 100 members a preview of
the airport's new $7.1 million terminal at their


March 9 meeting. Construction on the 20,000-
square-foot building began in March of 2006. Ms.
Barrow said the terminal's upcoming grand opening
and ribbon-cutting will be held on April 26.

State Farm To Pay $25.2 Million

Auto Policyholder Dividend


Winter Haven State Farm
Mutual Automobile Insurance
Co. will pay its Florida auto
insurance policyholders divi-
dends totaling $25.2 million.
Florida policyholders will
receive 2.0 percent of their semi-
annual premium, the company
announced. Amounts will vary
significantly depending on the
customer's premium.
Dividend payments will begin
in early April and will continue
throughout the year.
Policyholders can expect to


receive their dividend near the
time of their policy renewal.
Those policyholders receiving
less than $15 will be credited on
their State Farm renewal premi-
ums.
State Farm is the largest
insurer of autos in Florida and in
the nation, a spokesman said. "As
a mutual insurance company,
State Farm's primary obligation
is to its policyholders, who are
therefore eligible to share in the
company's dividends," media
spokesman Michal Connolly said.


Florida joins State Farm
Mutual policyholders in 45 other
states, the District of Columbia
and the Canadian province of
New Brunswick in the receipt of
a total of $1.25 billion in the com-
pany's latest policyholder divi-
dend declaration, approved by
the State Farm Mutual board of
directors. With this dividend,
State Farm Mutual will have
returned $3.8 billion to auto poli-
cyholders companywide .since
1997.

Summerlin Judo Gearing

Up for National Event


Head Coach Brian Germain
of Summerlin Judo is getting
his elite players ready for the
Middle School-High -School
National Judo Championships
on March 24 at Florida
International University in
Miami.
Summerlin Judo expects to.
send four to six players to
these championships.
Four players are committed
to competing: Mike
Kowalczyk,Bartow Middle
School, eighth grade; Johnny
Purvis, Bartow Middle School,
eighth grade; Eric Wortman,
Rochelle Middle School, sev-
enth grade; and Katie
Germain, Lakeland Highlands
Middle School, sixth grade.
"All these athletes have a
fair amount of experience and
all but Purvis have fought in a'
national event before," Coach
Germain said.
"This will be good experi-
ence for them and will help
them continue to develop their
fighting skills.


The "dukes of the dirt, the
kings of krash, the barons of
bash" are coming to Tampa Bay.
Monsters of Motorsports will
hold shows on April 13 at 7:30
p.m. and April 14 at 2 and 7:30
p.m., rain or shine.
Monsters of Motorsports will
star monster trucks- Wild
Thang, Monster Patrol, TrMaxx,
Bad News Travels Fast, Sudden
Impact, Excalibur, and others.
SBandit Racing will join the
madness and feature its famous
Off Road Drags. The Extreme
Street Monster Challenge will
feature some of the fastest
trucks in Florida competing for
a nightly cash prize.
Rounding out the show will
be the Wall of Fire stunt team
and Tug-A-Truck Wars.


Anglers can catch the bait
and other free items if they
upgrade now from a yearly to a
'5-year freshwater fishing
license.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation. Commission's
(FWC) offer remains valid until
3,000 upgraded licenses are
sold, probably by May.
- The 5-year fishing license
bonus program provides an
extra incentive to anglers in the
form of free items worth more
than the cost of the license, plus
all of the priceless memories
fishing experiences create.
The first 3,000 customers to
upgrade to a 5-year freshwater
fishing license, which 'costs
$61.50 plus convenience fees
(ranging from $2 to $4.83,
depending on where the buyer
purchases the license), will save
between $6 and nearly $20 in
fees. They also will receive by
mail a free bonus package
containing samples, magazines
and coupons from fishing-relat-
ed companies.
Florida fishing license fees -
the major source of funding for
conservation programs from'
habitat restoration to fish
stocking to fishing access


"It isn't always about win-
ning though I certainly hope
they will be able to reach the
podium," he added. "Early in
an athlete's career a coach
wants to focus more on devel-
oping good training habits and
skills."
Two additional players from
Summerlin Academy are try-
ing. to earn the privilege to
compete at the event, Justin
Hamrick a ninth grader, and
Dallas Gobble a tenth grader.
"I'm very impressed by
these two athletes", Germain
said. "They haven't even
been in judo for a full year yet
and they really want to test
themselves at a national com-
petition. It isn't hard to see
that these two kids have a
champion's heart and mindset
already."
Their lack of experience
concerns Germain, though.
"I don't want to see these
kids get in over their head too
soon in their careers," he said.
"That is why I'm waiting to see


The party starts two hours

ster truck rides, show-n-shine

food, and more. All persons buy-
ing advance tickets will receive
a free pit pass.
The Monsters of Motorsports

enhancement may be used
only for fish and wildlife conser-
vation within the state.
A resident freshwater fishing
license costs $13.50 (not includ-
ing the varying fees) for an
entire year, but upgrading to a
five-year license benefits
anglers and the fishing industry
as well. The angler receives free
gifts, the FWC gets revenue for
conservation projects, and the
industry gets to show off some
of its top fishing products.
Five-year licenses are avail-
able at MyFWC.com/license or
by calling 1-888-347-4356.
Anglers also can purchase them
from any license agent, such as
retail stores and bait-and-tackle
shops, or at local county tax col-
lectors' offices.
For people whose fishing
license has yet to expire, the
effective date for the 5-year
license is flexible for up to 60
days after purchase. The free
package typically arrives three
to four weeks later.
For information .about local
fishing opportunities, interested
persons can contact the nearest
FWC regional office or visit

from heat. Brush glaze over brisket; broil 2 to 3
minutes or until glaze is bubbly and beginning to
brown.
4. Carve brisket diagonally across the grain into thin
slices. Cover and refrigerate 1/2 of brisket (about
12'ounces) and 2 cups potatoes for Rustic Corned.
Beef & Potato Bake. Serve remaining brisket and
potatoes with cabbage.
Makes 4 servings
Cook's Tip: If seasoning packet is not included with
corned beef brisket, substitute 1-1/4 teaspoons pick-
ling spice.


It's not about luck...

Scret:s lo great corned beef


The secret is simple: cook it long and slow,
tightly covered.
Corned beef brisket needs to gently simmer.
'High temperatures can toughen the meat.
The steam created during simmering ensures
fork-tender, moist and flavorful beef.
Do not boil. Boiling does not speed up the
cooking process; it only toughens
the beef.
No peeking! Be patient it cooks unattend-
ed. Just check the meat at the end of the sug-
gested cooking time.


It's not necessary to turn a brisket during
cooking. Each time the cover is lifted, steam
escapes and the tenderizing process is inter-
rupted.
To determine doneness, insert a utility fork
into the brisket; the beef is fork-tender when
fork inserts without resistance and releases
easily.
Carve brisket across the grain into
thin slices for the most tender eating experi-
ence.

Today, there are more women in Congress
than ever before. There are 71 women in
the House of Representatives* and 16
members in the Senate. In the three
states below, both senators are women.
California


Speaker Pelosi, her husband, Paul, an
investment banker; and her grandchildren.
She has five children.
Speaker Pelosi: "Including being
speaker of the House, the best jobs I
have had are as a mother and
grandmother."


Nancy Pelosi has served in Congress since
1987.
As speaker of the House, Nancy
Pelosi is second in line to become
president, after the vice president. She
is a powerful woman making history.
(We often see the initial D or R behind a
Congress member's name. The D stands
for Democrat and the R for Republican.
The state is often behind the party.
Speaker Pelosi is from California.)

mayor of Baltimore, Md., in 1947.
Speaker Pelosi: "From the.time I
was in first grade until I went away to
college, my father was mayor of
Baltimore. My parents always taught
me that public service was. a noble
calling, and I saw that my father's
work helped."

*There are also three non-voting female
delegates, representing the District of
Columbia, Guam and the Virgin Islands.

The MiNni VAO Standards Spotlight: .
Tim ?411% o.s Hello, Speaker Pelosi
Mini Page activities meet many state and national educational standards. Each
week we identify standards that relate to The Mini Page's content and offer
activities that wil help your students reach them.
This weeks standards:
* Students distinguish among local, state and national governments and identify
representative leaders at these levels. (Social Studies: Power, Authority and Governance)
Students understand the role of institutions in furthering both continuity and change. (Social
Studies: Individuals, Groups and Institutions)
Activities:
1. Select a female comic strip character who you think might make a good person to help make
the laws in this country. Paste the strip on a piece of paper. Then write a sentence telling
why you chose the character
2. Find a newspaper story about the US. House of Representatives or the US. Senate. Paste
the article on a piece of paper. Now circle all the names of representatives or senators with a
red marker. Underline words that tell what the representatives or senators are doing with a
blue marker (for example, talking about a bill, or voting, or talking to the president).
3. Use the Internet or resource books to research the number of elected women officials in your
state. How many representatives in the US. House of Representatives are women from your
state? Is either of your US. senators a woman? What state-level elected offices do women
hold in your state? Look for newspaper stories about women officials in your state.
4. Use the information in today's Mini Page to write a paragraph about House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi. Use these questions to guide your writing: What type of speaker do you think Nancy
Pelosi will be? What about her background has prepared her for her job? What is your
impression of her based on her responses to Mini Page questions?

Mini Page: What does a
representative do?
Speaker Pelosi: "When we are in
Watnhington, we vote on bills, meet
with colustituents and other
itnefibetr, and try our best to serve
the people who elect us.
"'Members of Congress are
responsible for passing laws that
affect the lives of all Americans,
including children, such as
education, health and keeping our
nation safe."


Mini Page: How were you
elected speaker?
Speaker Pelosi: "i was elected
speaker by my colleagues my
fellow members of the House." (She
was nominated by her political party,
the Democrats, who now have the
most members in the House.)
"This means that they have put
their trust and faith in me to lead
the House, and, this is a great honor.
"Before I was speaker of the
House, I was the House Democratic
leader.
"Before that, I was the House
Democratic whip. The whip is a
funny word to describe a job in
which you keep track of other
members of Congress and help'
pass bills."


Mini Page: What does the
speaker of the House do?
Speaker Pelosi: "The
speaker of the House
a, has three primary
ai_ (important) roles.
.-_- r"First, I represent my
constituents in Congress, just like
every member does.
"Second, I lead my party. For me,
that is the Democratic Party.
"Finally, I lead the entire House,
both the Democrats and
Republicans.
"In addition to all the things that
members of Congress do, I have
extra responsibilities. Some days I
might give a speech, or go to the
White House to meet with the
president."


There are 435 members of the House of Representatives. They are elected from
congressional districts, each of which has an about equal number of citizens. They
are elected to serve for two years.
The 100-member Senate has two members from each state. Senators are elected for
six years. The vice president serves as the head of the Senate.
