Hancocks Hold Annual Family Reunion


Peace River Park east of Fort
Meade was the setting for the
annual Hancock family reunion,
held April 14.
Approximately 100 cousins
attended the event.
Families represented at the
reunion include the descendants
of Cader Hancock, Shadrack
Hancock, Willingham Parker,
Missouri Hancock Kilpatrick,
Mariah Hancock Manley, Nancy
Hancock Keen, Martha Jane
Hancock Durrance, and Henry
Washington Hancock.
Also represented were the dif-
ferent families of James Thomas
Hancock and Serena Willingham
Hancock, whose children were
Martha Ann Watson, James
Thomas, Jr., Robert, Henry,
Shade, Durham, Victoria Koon,
Martin, Isabelle Potter, Jerry, and
Mariah Hancock Dishong.
The group was called, to order
at about noon, and an invocation
was given by Vernon Hancock. A
buffet luncheon followed with vis-
iting and fellowship.
After the meal, the group
heard a report from the Hancock
Family Cemetery Association.
President June Shirley intro-
duced treasurer Joyce Acuff, who
gave the financial report, and
Ronnie Hancock, who brought the
group up to date on the expansion
of the area and the new fence and
entrance sign.
Palm Beach County Judge
Nelson Bailey, introduced by Jim
Hancock of Frostproof, gave a his-


tory of the cattle in Florida from
the time they were first brought
here by the Spanish in 1521.
He gave a colorful description
of the difference between a west-
ern cow pony and the Florida cow
pony, which also is of early
Spanish origin. Out West, they
put their cattle in corrals; in
Florida, they are put in "pens."
Out West, they herd their cattle;
in Florida, they "drive" their cat-
tle. Out West, they are called cow-
boys; in Florida, in they are called
"cowhunters." Out West, they call
their whip a bull whip, but in
Florida, it is called a "cow whip."
Judge Bailey also mentioned
that some of the stories in the
book, "A Land Remembered," by
Patrick Smith, were based on
early Hancock family lore.
When he asked if anyone in the
audience wanted to try the cow
whip, two young teenaged family
cousins, brothers Jarrod Hair and
Jake Hair, of Okeechobee, volun-
teered. Jarrod and Jake are the


sons of Buster and Esther Hair.
The boys did an "awesome job" of
using the cow whip, a family
spokesman said. Jake also enter-
tained with his banjo.
Family historians Jody
Pickering of Alabama, Kenneth
Hancock of Fort Meade, and Jim
Miller of Lake Placid had plenty
of family genealogical material
available, which was heavily
perused.
The two last surviving grand-
children of James Thomas and
Serena Hancock, Jean Hancock
Duke of Ruskin and Maxine
Hancock of Fort Meade, were
introduced.
\Those attending the reunion
for the first time were Shirley
Hancock Carter of Halifax, N.C.;
Billy and Sylvia Watson Lanfair
of Lake Placid; Jeanne, Emma,
Rachel, and John Stephens of
Fort. Meade; and John Arthur
Stephens, III, of Lakeland.
The day ended with photos of
each individual family and then


the whole group for the Hancock
website and reunion scrap-
book.
Next year's reunion will be
held on the first Saturday after
Easter.

4 The Polk County Democrat April 23, 2007


Editorial


For those of us who have watched the
reincarnation of Bartow Municipal
Airport, this week's opening of a new ter-
minal is a crowning achievement of nearly
40 years of improvements.
Construction of what was originally
Bartow Army Air Field began one day
after Pearl Harbor Day. BAAF would soon
turn out fighter pilots for World War II.
(What later would become the United
States Air Force was then the Army Air
Corps.)
Turned over to the city after the war, the
facility was taken back over by the federal
government in 1950 to train pilots for the
Korean War. By then, it had become
Bartow Air Base.
Ten years later, the Pentagon closed BAB
in an economy move, and instead of fight-
ing that decision as several other cities
did when their air bases were demobilized
- the City of Bartow saw a chance to turn
Bartow Air Base into an industrial park
and general aviation airport. ("General
aviation" airports are those which serve
primarily small private aircraft, not major
airlines.)
It was a worthy idea, but the city was
reluctant to put money into the airport,
and in fact, charged part of the operation
of the city manager's office against the
slim airport revenues.
Grass grew in the runways, and World
War II-era buildings showed lack of main-
tenance. One actually collapsed.
In July 1967, after considering and
rejecting a request from a group of local
business leaders to lease the airport to
them and allow them to develop it to its
full potential, commissioners secured a
special act of the Legislature, creating the
Bartow Municipal Airport Development-
Authority. Commissioners themselves
would be members of the authority, but
would oversee a separate staff devoted
entirely to airport operations.
SBenjamin L. Durrance, Jr., a Navy
Reserve pilot who hadcbeen a city commis-


sioner less than a year earlier, was chosen
as airport manager, and set about to create
what eventually would be widely recog-
nized as one of the finest general aviation
airports in the state.
A modest terminal was established in
what had been the flight operations build-
ing, and Durrance hired a small staff to
manage the airport, maintain its buildings,
arid direct flight operations. Some of the
old buildings were renovated, and others
were torn down and replaced with modern
structures.
After Durrance's untimely death in 1994
at the age of 59, Cynthia Barrow, who had
gone to work at the airport when she grad-
uated from high school in 1976 and had
worked her way up to assistant manager,
was selected to succeed Durrance as man-
ager.
Today, the airport has a budget of more
than $3 million, half from industrial park
revenues, half from flight operations. It has
received tens of millions in grants from the
state and federal governments.
The unveiling this week of the $7 mil-
lion-plus terminal project (which includes
additional aircraft ramp space) is the
largest and most dramatic but certainly
not the last improvement at what began
as Bartow Army Air Field in 1941.
It is a proud day for the community.

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

Way Beyond Plan B


New Terminal: Crowning


Achievement for BMA


However, what doesn't work
is to have zero journeyman press-
men on the job, and several well-
meaning folks who have merely
an acquaintance with the press,
even those with a yet-unframed
diploma from CMYKU.
Last Thursday, that is,what we
had. We have one vacancy in the
press assistant category, and both
our journeyman pressmen were
sick, too sick even to think about
coming to work. (Fortunately,
they have recovered.)
With our acquisition by Sun
Coast, we had more options than
in the past. There was the possi-
bility of dispatching a pressman
from one of the two printing
plants in Sun Coast South (at
Venice and Charlotte) or of trans-
mitting our pages electronically
to one of those plants, and print-
ing there.
I even inquired about the
availability of the corporate jet to
speed transportation, only to be
reminded that we don't have a
corporate jet. Well, it. was a
thought.
Late in the morning, I got our
supervisors together and told
them it would be a day they
would tell' their grandchildren
about.
"We will print today," I said.
"I'm not sure when; I'm not sure
where; and I'm not sure how. But
we will print today's issue." I


asked for everyone to remain in
the All Hands and the Ship's Cat
on Deck Mode, ready to fill in
wherever needed.
One of Frisbie's Laws is
"Always have Plan B." We
exhausted most of the letters of
the alphabet with plans and sub-
plans, none of which were partic-
ularly appealing.
I soon discovered that we had
a few people on the staff who
know more about running the
press than I realized, all of whom
contributed what they could to
the process.
At long last, with the help of
Jerry Atwood from Sun Coast
South and Ralph Harrison from
The Wauchula Herald-Advocate,
we finally got the two runs off the
press.
This is not a tale of woe; this is
a boast.
Everybody, including our car-
rier force, kept a positive attitude,
and pitched in where they could.
It was partially a learning experi-
ence, and partially a success
story.
Your newspaper was delivered
late very late and the color
reproduction was not something
that we will boast about.
But we got there, and I could
not be prouder, or more apprecia-
tive, of our staff.

The Irony of Elvis


ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

It's Stupid and It Stinks


My friend Larry Stich came
through Atlanta last week and we
had a nice visit.
I suddenly realized that it has
been 10 years since he cured me
of smoking. The first time he
came for a visit was right after
Christmas.
When I opened the front door,
before he even got one foot in the
house, he inquired in a voice like
a bullhorn at a high school foot-
ball game, "Why do you smoke?
It's stupid and it stinks!"
Larry is a big man. Really big.
I get a crick in my neck looking
up at him. I don't know how tall
he is, but he is definitely king-
sized.
He is an attorney, the father of
six grown children, and speaks
with authority. I doubt that he
knows how to whisper.


I met him on the computer
bulletin board. He was passing
through Atlanta on the way back
to Fort.Lauderdale.
I used to smoke. I smoked a
lot. I really enjoyed smoking. Ten
years ago, practically everyone
smoked. I smoked two or three
packs a day.
I haven't smoked a single ciga-
rette since. Not one. I was deter-
mined to stop smoking after
Larry's ruling from on high.
About two months after I quit, I
opened a drawer in the night
stand by my bed and there were
two packs of cigarettes in it. I
actually considered smoking
them so they wouldn't go to
waste.
Fortunately, I came to my sens-
es and decided to dispose of them
permanently. I put on my rubber


gloves, picked the cigarettes up
with my barbecue tongs, put
them in the kitchen sink, and cut
a big "X" in each one with a par-
ing knife. I then filled up the sink
with Clorox and water.
They really looked disgusting
and smelled awful. I was happy
to, put them in the garbage pail.
That was a really close call.
I am glad I quit smoking. My
white curtains don't turn yellow,
I don't burn holes in my clothes
and furniture, and I have gotten
rid of most of my ash trays. Now
when I see someone smoking, it
looks strange. There aren't as
many cigarette butts in the streets
and parking lots, either.
I think smoking is on the way
out. It's stupid and it stinks!

"I never knew a guitar picker that
owas worth a damn." Vernon Presley
' When you think about Elvis
Presley's meteoric rise to stardom -
from a $35 a week truck driver for
Crown Electric to the biggest inter-
national celebrity on the planet in
two years it's nothing less than
astonishing.
Elvis Aaron Presley was born to
Veinon and Gladys Presley in 1935 in
Tupelo, Miss. Elvis had a twin broth-
er, Jesse Garon, who was stillborn.
Elvis believed he was somehow
responsible for his brother's death
and lived with guilt which only
intensified after he became rich and
famous his entire life.
The Presleys lived on the poor
side of town in a little shotgun shack.
Vernon, desperate for funds, once
put a zero on a $4 check, making $4
look like $40. He spent a year in the
slammer. The family never got over
the shame.
Elvis was armored in the love of
both his mom and dad. That love
served as a shield to protect him
from the aching poverty in which
they lived.
They were deeply religious, and
Elvis's earliest musical influences
were in the church. The church they
attended was Pentecostal; the mem-
bers shouted and the musicians and
pastor danced and shook with the
spirit. Elvis later claimed that he
learned many of the moves that
drove girls to hysterics and
shocked and offended his elders -
in church.
When Elvis was 10, the Presleys
packed their few belongings into
their beat-up old car and moved to
Memphis in search of a better life.


Once again they wound up on the
poor side of town, living in the pro-
jects. But fate could not have put
young Elvis in a more appropriate
place, considering his temperament
and aptitude for music.
The blues ran wild in Memphis in
those days, and Elvis soaked it up
along with gospel, classical, country,
and pop. He loved it all. He especial-
ly idolized Bing Crosby, the
Inkspots, Billy Eckstine, Eddy
Arnold, Teresa Brewer, Hank Snow,
and Dean Martin.
In summer of 1953, when he was
18, Elvis walked into Sam Phillips's
Sun Recording Studio at 706 Union
Ave. to record a record for his moth-
er's birthday. The two recordings
were "My Happiness" and "That's
When Your Heartaches Begin."
On Jan. 6, 1954, Elvis went back to
Sun Studio and recorded two more,
songs, "I'll Never Stand in Your
Way" and "It Wouldn't Be the Same
Without You," more in hopes this
time of capturing Sam Phillips's
attention and being "discovered"
than for any other purpose.
Sam Phillips had been looking for
a "white man who sounded black."
In early June of 1954, he received a
song demo from Nashville and was
trying to decide who he wanted to
record it. His assistant, Marion
Keisker, said, "What about the kid
with the sideburns?"
Phillips called Presley in, but was
not particularly impressed. He did,
however, hook him up with guitarist
Scotty Moore, who had been looking
for a vocalist to perform with himself
and bass player Bill Black. At that
time Elvis's primary love was bal-
lads, and neither Moore nor Black


was any more impressed than
Phillips.
Phillips recognized, however, that
the kid had "something," and was
determined to dredge it out of him.
After a particularly long and fruit-.
less session one afternoon in the stu-
dio, Phillips was beginning to
despair, and turned off his tape
recorder.
During a break Presley, mostly
out of desperation, started "fooling
around" with an Arthur Crudup
blues number called "That's All
Right, Mama," playing and singing
in a way neither Moore nor Black nor
Phillips had heard before. The two
musicians fell in behind him and
Phillips, behind the glass in the
recording booth, pricked up his ears.
"What are you doing?" he asked.
"Nothin'," said Elvis, looking
embarrassed. "Just messin' around."
"Well, mess around some more,"
Phillips said, turning the tape back
on.
Out of that session came a rollick-
ing rendition of "That's All Right"
which soon would explode over the
airwaves of Memphis and create a
rumble that shook the South.
Elvis was in the right place at the
right time, and he had the goods to
deliver. The world was ready for
Elvis, but he could not possibly have
been ready for the whirlwind of ado-
ration and controversy that would
turn his world upside down.

The difference between being
able to "run a press" and being a
pressman is like the difference
between being able to drive a
sports car and being able to
rebuild its transmission.
I can "run a press," and for
several years, I drove a sports car.
Its transmission needed frequent
attention, which I could not give
it.
As a general rule, it takes three
pressmen to run our press and to
keep it happy. Keeping the press
happy is important; you don't
want to deal with an unhappy
press.
We can get along well with
two pressmen and an assistant
who knows what he or she is
doing. The assistant needn't
know as much as the pressmen.
We can even get along with
one really good pressman and
one or two people who have a
feel for press work, but are not
journeyman pressmen. I put
myself in that latter category.
And Bob Bobber, our general
manager, just completed a two-
and-a-half day course up in
Pennsylvania on press operation.
It's called CMYKU, as in the four
colors with which we print cyann,
magenta, yellow, and black) and
U for university. It's a crash
course.
So Bob is a graduate of
CMYKU, Class of Last Thursday.

dent when he was in church
recently. Wright was sitting
behind him, leaned over and
asked him if he had gotten some
questions about his scholarship
straightened out.
"I was amazed," LaBlanc said.
"I had asked him some questions
several months before, and he
remembered and cared about me.
That's just how he was with the
students"
Medders confirmed that fact,
and said, "The children just wor-
shipped him. My own daughters
just loved him. My daughter,
Heather, is back in school at the
age of 31 to become a teacher
because of him."
A tour of Wright's office
reflects the man. His faith was
very important to him. He served
as a deacon in his church,
Greater St. Paul Baptist Church.
On the right corner of his over-
sized polished desk he always
kept his Bible. The shelves
behind him had a copy of the
poem, "You Must Not Quit," and a
needlepoint piece that reads,
"God +Education = Success" and
a well known description of
"Attitude" by Charles Swindall.
Wright was a member of the
Lake Wales Lunchtime Rotary
Club and lived "The Rotary 4-
Way Test of things we say, think
or do" which is displayed, too.
The test reads: "Is it the
truth? Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build good will and better
friendships? and finally, Will it be
beneficial to all concerned?"

Charter School Board of Trustees
said, "The death of Dr. Wright is a
tremendous loss not only to the
Lake Wales Charter School
System but to the whole commu-
nity. He made an amazing differ-
ence in the lives of many people,
young and old. It took a special
person to make the concept of a
charter school system become a
reality. His energy and enthusi-
asm were unmatched. He will be
greatly missed."
Family was another important
part of his personal philosophy.
His employees knew that in
Wright's mind, family came first,
and they should take the time,
whenever necessary, to take care
of family issues.
Another one of his traits was
that he had a real open-door pol-
icy.
"No matter how busy he was,"
Ms. Medders 'said, "he was
always ready to help. If someone
dropped in, and did not mind
waiting, he made time to see
them, no matter what else he had
to do."
He was very proud of his own
family and spoke often of his wife
of 35 years, Debra, and his fami-
ly, daughters LaToya Wright and
Ashlee, and son-in-law Kubek
Haggins.
Dr. i Wright was born in
Bartow, and graduated from
Bartow High School in 1971. He
attended Florida Memorial
College where he received his
bachelor of science degree in
social studies.
He received his master's of
education from Rollins College in
1978 and his educational special-

of Bartow, died Sunday, April 22,
2007, at his home.
Mr. Wilson was born in
Sarasota with his twin sister,
Betty, on March 23, 1916, to A.E.
and Mary Alice Wilson, a pioneer
family.
He was raised in Boyette, and
attended Brandon High School.
He moved to Bartow in 2002..
Mr. Wilson was a.World War II
Army veteran, serving three
years in the Sixth Army Division
in Germany in the tank division
during the Battle of the Bulge.
He retired after 17 years with
U.S. Phosphoric, Gibsonton.
Mr. Wilson married Mary
Sumner Wilson in 1970, and both
ran a cattle ranch in
Hillsborough, Hardee, and
DeSoto counties. He loved his
cows, dogs, and horses, and
enjoyed music, playing guitar,
and teaching others to play, fam-
ily members say.
He was a member of DeSoto
Masonic Lodge #105 in Riverview
and the Blue Lodge.
Along with his wife, he is sur-
vived by two sons, Dale E. Wilson
and wife, Judith, of Avon Park,
and Ronald G. Wilson and wife,
Sherri, of Charleston, S.C.; three
daughters, Denise N. Earnest of

Neighbors, Developer

Reach Compromise


What started as a stand-off
between residents and industrial
park developers was resolved
Monday night with adoption of a
zoning compromise that left both
parties praising each other.
The property in question is a
39.5-acre parcel north of Gordon
Heights and west of Bartow
Municipal Airport.
Gordon Heights residents ini-
tially objected to industrial zon-
ing for the property, which is
owned by Tom Bryant and Tom
Oswalt.
Under the compromise, the
land was rezoned as a "planned
development," with three levels
of industrial activity. The lowest
level will be in the area nearest
to Gordon Heights, and the high-
est level will be next to a concrete


fabrication plant and a junkyard.
Bryant told the city commis-
sion that the negotiations "were a
real learning process." He said
the final development plans were
a response to the concerns of
neighbors.
"This isn't hard," he said. "All
you have to do is sit down and lis-
ten."
Gloria Washington,
spokesman for neighbors, said,
"We have had the opportunity to
have a dialogue. This thing
should be something we can live
with.
"We look forward to the jobs.
"Why didn't we do this the
first time?"
The zoning was approved by
unanimous vote of the city com-
mission.

Is Job Burnout Affecting You?


Are there days you hate to
head to work? It's not an uncom-
mon feeling. Most jobs, at least
sometimes, can bring high levels
of job stress and leave you dread-
ing that next day and more stress.
But when that dread becomes
an everyday occurrence, you may
be facing job burnout a poten-
tially serious problem. Burnout is
directly related to job stress. Its
causes can be anything from a
tedious and boring job to work
that's simply beyond your abili-
ties.
Job burnout doesn't happen
overnight. You may notice that
being bored with your job or that
once-exciting job activities are
now drudgery. Perhaps you've
become overly cynical and critical
of your job, company, boss and co-
workers. You may find yourself
more easily annoyed at work and
carrying those work' feelings into
relationships with family and
friends.
Dreading going to work each
day, or feeling depressed on
Sunday afternoon just because


Monday is approaching are other
signs of job burnout. Doing a
"good" job at work may seem
unimportant and you feel tired
and have low energy most of the
time.
If several of these symptoms
are affecting you, it's a strong
sign that you may be heading into
job burnout. Unfortunately, while
symptoms are easy to recognize,
treating them can be harder.
Job burnout often leaves the
person feeling depressed, making
it harder to seek solutions. You
can feel isolated, alone in your
predicament with no way out.
A starting point in combating
job burnout is identifying sources
of job stress. Maybe the company
has changed, or your job offers lit-
tle security. Perhaps there are
conflicts with a new boss or co-
worker, changes in job responsi-
bilities, or simply that you've per-
sonally grown and changed.
Understanding job stress
sources can help you identify
options to improve things.
Sometimes, simply talking to a


supervisor about possible job
changes might help. Other times,
more serious solutions, such as
changing jobs or a new career
field, might be in order.
If you're recognizing signs of
job burnout in your life, address
the sources quickly. If you need
professional help, consider a
-career counselor specializing in
these problems. Check the yellow
pages, or visit the National
Career Development
Association's website,
www.ncda.org, for help in locating I
a career counselor.
Don't just suffer. Your job
should be fulfilling and satisfy-
ing, not a source of constant
stress and misery.

Airline Eating Calls For New Strategy


Airport security procedures
and airline budgets are leading to
ripples of change in layover time,
airport restaurant options and in-
flight food service.
All this adds up to major strat-
egy adjustments for people trying
to eat healthfully while traveling.
Security and flight changes
result in many passengers spend-
ing enough time at airports to
allow a meal at one of their many
restaurants.
Options at smaller airports
may not be exciting, but most
major airports now feature local-
flavor restaurants that expand
options beyond the repetitious
fast food choices of only a few
years ago.
Airports generally either limit
or forbid any price increase
beyond a restaurant's other loca-
tions. Look for the low-fat options
and seek out ways to add extra
vegetables and fruits in soups,
salads and side orders.
For many travelers, time to eat
is short. Now that food offered on
most flights is extremely limited,
bringing food to eat on the plane
or while waiting at the departure
gate is often the best option.
Security regulations allow pas-
sengers to carry onto planes food
and beverages from restaurants
located past security screening
checkpoints. The food is not
counted as part of your allowed
two carry-on items.
You also can bring food from
home or places outside the air-
port, but it will need to be inside
your carry-on luggage as it goes
through security screening.
Any non-solid foods, such as


yogurt, soup, peanut butter or
canned fruit, must be in three-
ounce or smaller containers and
be included in your allotment of
carry-on liquids.
If you do not have time to eat
before leaving for an early morn-
ing flight you can still energize
your day with a healthful break-
fast. You can pick up yogurt, cere-
al and lowfat milk or fresh fruit
on your way to the gate.
Or choose a bagel (whole grain
if available). Big bagels. are
already fairly high in calories so
eat them plain, with a dab of light
cream cheese, or peanut butter
for protein and longer-lasting
energy. Another hearty but
healthful breakfast choice could
be a small egg sandwich on a
bagel or roll, but limit the add-ons
like cheese, bacon or butter to no
more 'than one, and definitely
skip the high-fat sausage.
You should also forego the
sugar-loaded fatty pastries and
donuts that will have your energy
hitting the ground before your
plane does.
If flight time coincides with
mealtime later in the day, look for
low-fat take-out options among
the many sandwiches, wraps and
burritos. A small deli sandwich or
six-inch sub can work well.
Ask for extra vegetables and
stick to no more than one high fat
add-on such as mayonnaise,
dressing, cheese or bacon, which
add 50 to 100 calories each. You
can also try a tomato or broth-
based soup, vegetarian chili, or a
stir-fry from grill restaurants.
Steer clear of the giant cookies,
since they pack 200 to 300 calo-


ries each.
SIf you need a snack, some good
choices include yogurt, fresh fruit
and whole-grain cereals. Bypass
the candy bars at news stands
and choose a one-ounce sleeve of
nuts or small bag of trail mix.
Some airport stores even have
fresh fruit, although you might
want to bring a piece of fruit just
in case. But don't get in the habit
of snacking your way through air-
ports and flights as a way to
relieve boredom or deal with the
stress of traveling. A bottle of
water allows you to stay fully
hydrated and drink on your own
schedule. In contrast, those extra-
large mocha whipped cream cof-
fee drinks have the calories and
fat of a whole, meal without the
nutrients.
On the plane when drinks and
snacks are served, think about
what you take. Even those small
soft drinks and tiny bags of pret-
zels add unneeded calories and
refined carbohydrates. If you did-
n't carry on a water bottle, ask for
water, fruit juice or tomato juice.

Chamber of Commerce


ease spread can be limited. But
parents need some basic support
from their employers in the form
of time off with pay to nurse their
children back to health and iso-
late them from their playmates.
More than 21 million workers
are caregivers for disabled adults
and elderly persons. These fragile
individuals' health emergencies
cannot be confined to non-work
hours. Without adequate paid
sick days, however, the decision
about being at work or providing
much-needed care can be very dif-
ficult. And someone is likely to
lose, whichever choice is made.
Health concerns are always of
key import to individuals, but
there's a societal interest as well.
This is perhaps most obvious with
the flu: we are all better off when
people avoid public contact while
they're contagious, so more of us
can stay healthy.
With other circumstances, like
an aged parent who needs help


managing their diabetes, or a pre-
schooler suffering an asthma
attack, health-care resources are
used more efficiently when fami-
lies can provide timely care.
But more than that, we all
know that having families take
responsibility for one another is
the right thing. They just need a
little help from the boss some-
times to make that possible.
Some cities have begun to take
action. San. Francisco voters tole
employers to step up to the plate.
Proposal F, which gives all.
workers at least 40 hours of paic
sick time (those in bigger busi
nesses will have 72 hours), was
endorsed by more than 60 percent
of voters. At least in one city
workers will be able to take the
CDC's advice and keep their snif
fles and sneezes at home.


Are you sniffling and sneezing?
Feeling achy or feverish? Maybe
you have the flu. If so, the Centers
for Disease Control would like
you to stay home take a break
from errands, school, and work so
you don't make other people sick.
If your employer doesn't offer
you paid sick days, though, follow-
ing this advice can be very expen-
sive.
Maybe you won't be paid for
any time you have to take off. For
minimum-wage workers, missing
$75 for staying home a couple
days could mean not being able to
pay the electric company, or
skimping on food at the end of the
month.
Or, even worse being fired
for holing up in bed with the snif-
fles and a box of tissues.
These are the consequences
that tens of millions of workers
face in the United States.
Nearly half of all workers do
not have a single paid sick day.
Their employers want them to
stay on the job even when they
have the flu or some other conta-
gious disease. And, ironically,
some jobs with the most face-to-
face public contact have the least
flexibility about keeping germs
out of the workplace.
This is important for children,
too. Most children today live in
families where all the parents are
employed. When a youngster gets
the flu or pink-eye, a parent's care
means a speedier recovery.
But too many parents have to
think twice about missing work to
comfort a sick child because
staying home means less income,
or maybe even being fired.
Sometimes the risk is just too
great.
Pumped up on meds so they
appear healthy and sent off to
school or child-care as usual,
these kids drag through the day
while parents anxiously await a
call telling them to take their
children home.
Little kids are typically the
first in a community to show
signs of the flu, and they are very
effective little disease vectors,
with their inherently tactile dis-
positions and poor sense of per-
sonal hygiene.
If they can be kept home until
they're no longer contagious, dis-

Lady Jackets Fall to Lake Wales

Highlanders in District Tourney


By MARK KING
Sports Correspondent


It was a different kind of dis-
trict tournament final in the
Class 4-A, Region 9 game Friday
night.
For one thing, the tournament
was held in Lake Wales, while the
last two were in Bartow.
And although the game came
down once again to Bartow versus
Lake Wales and one team com-
pletely dominated the other, this
time it was the Lady Highlanders
who "kilt" the defending champs,
the Lady Jackets, 6-3.
And to be brutally honest, the
Yellow Jackets really never had a
chance.
Lake Wales was all over the
Jackets from the get-go, produc-
ing needed hits, scoring runs
when given the opportunity, and
getting dynamite pitching from
their freshman pitcher, Hanna
Rogers, to reduce the Bugs' late
rally to not much more than just
avoiding a shut-out.
While Bartow seemed off-cen-
ter in all phases of the game
early, the Lady Highlanders' first

Take Stock in


baseman, Rachael Hunt, was per-
fect at the plate, going four-for-
four with a double, a run scored
and an RBI. Hunt, usually the
pitcher for Lake Wales, was a
dominant force at the plate.
Bartow's defense, meanwhile,
was a far cry from the Great Wall
of Bartow that has been a major
factor in the team's recent past.
Errors and miscues abounded for
the Bugs on defense. And the
Bug's ace pitcher, Candace
Howell, was taken out of the
game in the top of the fourth
inning as the Highlander hitters
harassed Howell hopelssly.
Lindsey Martin and Sami
Burton came in relief over the
remainder of the game, but were
unable to stop the Highlander
Hummer from rolling over the
defending champs, like they were
VW Bugs lined up at a truck rally.
However, all is not lost for the
Bartow faithful, as the team will
advance in a loser-division type
bracket. However, the team can
no longer afford another loss,
1 i1 .11 sea-,


because that will end thnei
son.

Glenn Rutenbar explained. "We
had 11 hits and nine of those
came in the last three innings, so
we can hit the ball. But you can't
give up six runs and expect to
win."
The coach also noted that the
team has come a long way since
the season began. Thanks to the
coaching staff and hard work by
the Bugs, it has been a fun sea-
son, watching these young stu-
dent-athletes mold themselves
into a real Bartow-type team:
Bartow (18 -9) will take on the
Sebring Blue Streaks (21-2) at 7
p.m. on Tuesday in Sebring. And
remember, several of the early
state championships that Bartow
has earned, including the very
first against Lake Region, were
achieved without winning the dis-
tricts.
Hope springs eternal!

New


Terminal Opens at


Bartow Municipal Airport


By VIRGINIA CONDELLO
Greater Bartow Chamber
of Commerce

Bartow Municipal Airport's (BMA)
Executive Director Cindy Barrow has
finally realized a dream she had five
years ago, when she pleaded with the
Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) to consider assisting with
funding to build a new terminal build-
ing at the airport.
Bartow, Polk County and Florida
had been growing by leaps and
bounds and with more than 1,000 peo-
ple moving each day into Florida, she
knew BMA needed to expand to
accommodate the growth.
The state offered funding over mul-
tiple-years from 2003 through 2008.
BMA was required to do a Terminal
Area Study to determine the feasibili-
ty and the preferred location for the
new terminal.
Two locations were considered -
the existing terminal site and a new
site west of the complex. The western
site was finally decided upon it
would decrease the congestion of the
airport "apron," where many times
other aviation tenants and BMA
would scramble for space.
Once the decision had been made
about where the terminal would be,
the bid process began, with SEMCO
Construction winning the nod to build
the approximately 20,000-square-foot
terminal. URS Southern completed
the design and on May 16, 2006,
ground was officially broken for the
new facility.

A Brief History
Bartow Municipal Airport was
built in the 1940s and has a long his-
tory of serving as a training airport.
In 1942, the U.S. Government devel-
oped it into a training field for the
Army Air Corps, and throughout
World War II the airport was used to
train pilots.
After the war, the General Services
Administration deeded the airport to


the city of Bartow. A fixed base opera-
tor ran the training base at the air-
port from 1945 to 1950, and the sur-
rounding buildings were used for
industry and storage.
Airport ownership reverted back to
the federal government in 1950. For
the next 10 years, private companies
operated the flight school for the gov-
ernment. When the government
closed the flight school, the city man-
aged the airport and leased the avia-
tion facilities to a fixed base operator.
In 1964, the city requested authority
from the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) to convert the
building complex into an industrial
park.
In 1967, the City of Bartow passed
an ordinance establishing an airport
authority to operate the airport. The
Bartow Municipal Airport
Development Authority is composed of
an executive director and five city
commission members who wear a dif-
ferent hat when they meet as airport
authority board members.
The airport contains three active
runways, a lot of industrial develop-
ment, hangar space, some depart-
ments of the Polk County Sheriff's
Office, Polk County Water Resources,
and the City of Bartow's new electric
department.
The taxiway was recently extended
with further plans to extend the north
parallel by 1,700 feet. The airport has
more than 50 tenants, and some 1,300
employees work at the airport.
BMA is rich in history, and boasts
three astronauts who had trained at
its fields.
"We thought it important to retain
the valuable history of the airport,"
Barrow said. With this in mind, a
room at the new terminal was allotted
for a museum to display airport mem-
orabilia.
Pat Huff, Bartow city commissioner
and part of the BMA Development
Authority, is also chairman of the
Bartow Air Base Historical
Committee. He and committee mem-
bers have been collecting items that


Grand Opening Section

Celebrate with us the grand opening of Bartow Municipal Airport's new
terminal as we explore in words and pictures the history and future of
BMA.
This special section features stories by S.L. Frisbie, IV, and Virginia
Condello, with photographs by Jeff Clark, Condello, and Peggy Kehoe. The
cover was designed by Clark, and the section was designed by Kehoe.
Grand opening ceremonies on Thursday, April 26, will include arrival of
vintage aircraft at 9:30 a.m., dedication and ribbon-cutting at 10, and open
house from 10:30 to 2.
Bartow Flight Line Grill is open in the terminal, serving Monday
through Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 7 a.m.
to 1 p.m., and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Catering is available by calling 519-
5484.

will be placed in the museum room
and on display throughout the lobby
and restaurant.
They have plans to do videos-and
roundtable discussions with former
instructors, students and others asso-
ciated with the Bartow Army Air Field
or Bartow Air Base, and have collect-
ed several yearbooks from different
classes that trained at the base.

The Terminal
BMA's new 18,000-square-foot ter-
minal also has a 1,900-square-foot
mezzanine upstairs. The new termi-
nal, which officially opened Jan. 31,
2007, houses administrative offices, a
fixed base operation for the flight
school, a pilot's lounge and weather
briefing room, two conference rooms
for board meetings, the Museum
Room, and a new restaurant, the
Bartow Flight Line Grill.
Chris and Susie Scott, who owned
Kathy's Two Restaurant at the base,
were asked to operate the new restau-
rant in the terminal, which offers
breakfast, lunch and catering. The
Scotts have obtained a liquor license
and will begin serving drinks during
dinner on Friday and Saturday nights
within the next month. Patrons of the
restaurant have a front row seat to
watch planes take off and land, seven
days a week. The menu includes spe-
cial sandwiches and hamburgers as
well as hot meals such as "Mama's
Meatloaf."
The total contract with SEMCO
Construction was about $7.1 million,
which included the cost of the new
access road, expansion of the aircraft
parking apron, a new water line from
U.S. Highway 17 that looped through-
out the industrial park, and construc-
tion of the terminal.
FDOT paid 80 percent of the termi-
nal cost with BMA paying 20 percent.
The FAA participated in the cost of
the new aircraft parking apron at 95
percent with BMA and FDOT paying
2-1/2 percent each. The access road


was shared between FDOT and BMA
at 50 percent each.

Economic Impact
BMA and its industrial park have
been completely self-supporting since
the airport authority was established
in 1967, Several revenue generating
elements include aircraft fueling, T-
hangars, and the industrial park pro-
viding the majority of the revenue.
BMA currently has 50 leases,
including a mobile home manufactur-
er, a lumber company, a cold storage
provider and atrucking and distribu-
tion company.
BMA has several state and county
leases, such as fire services, emer-
gency management, emergency med-
ical, environmental services, supervi-
sor of elections, state fire marshal,
sheriffs office and crime scene lab,
and children and family services.
Economic impact of the complex is
estimated at $315 million for Bartow
and surrounding communities.
Airport businesses employ 1,300 peo-
ple who were paid an estimated
$31.75 million last year. Businesses
located at the airport spent another
estimated $156.25 million for goods
and services including fuel, labor, sup-
plies, food, construction materials and
other items.

To Get A Look ...
The grand opening and Greater
Bartow Chamber of Commerce ribbon
.cutting for the new terminal will be
held Thursday, April 26, 2007, at 9:30
a.m. Everyone is invited to attend and
get a first hand look at Bartow's new
airport terminal, museum and restau-
rant.

Ground Was Broken For Bartow



Airport One Day After Pearl Harbor


By LOUISE K. FRISBIE

By bizarre coincidence, ground was
broken on Bartow Army Air Field on
-Dec. 8, 1941, one day after the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor.
BAAF would become a base for train-
ing fighter pilots during World War II.
Mayor C.E. (Tiny) Williams had been
working for months to get such a field
established at Bartow.
Rushed to completion, as military
installations were in the early days of
World War II, the field received its first
Army Air Corps planes in 1942, and
soon there were scores of P-51
Mustangs in the air over Polk County,
zooming off from the base adjoining U.S.
Highway 17, six miles north of Bartow.
Throughout the war, BAAF turned
out its classes of advanced fighter pilots
like clockwork, to take their places in
the skies against the Axis flyers.
In 1946, the field was deactivated
and became the property of the City of
Bartow. A private flying service made
use of the giant hangar and landing
strips. The larger buildings were used
as warehouses, and the barracks were
remodeled into three-family apartments
for veterans in a desperate effort to
overcome the post-war housing short-
age.
One big building was remodeled to
house the Air Base School for
Exceptional Children (possibly Polk
County's first public school for the
handicapped) and later the Polk County
Guidance Center. The school later
expanded to make use of the whole
building.
But along came the Korean War in
1950, and Uncle Sam discovered that he
had disarmed too much, too soon. Also,
the government had learned that it
could train fliers more cheaply and effi-
ciently by hiring private corporations to
do the job.
Fleetwood Garner of Virginia came to
Bartow, obtained an option on the prop-
erty from the city, and sought one of the
nine contracts to be awarded. He suc-
ceeded in April 1950, and established
Garner Aviation Service Corp. on the
premises.
The field was hurriedly reconverted
for Air Force service, and on May 28,
1951, the first class of cadets arrived.
Subsequently, more than 3,500 U.S. and
Allied pilots took their flight training at
the Bartow field. Academic subjects
were taught, as well as flying skills.
A few years later, the field reverted
once more to the city, and became an
industrial complex administered by the
Bartow Municipal Airport Authority,
comprised of the Bartow city commis-
sioners. B.L. Durrance, Jr., was manag-
er for a number of years.

(This early history of the airport was
written by Louise K Frisbie, probably in
the 1960s or 1970s. She was an avid
local historian, author, and copy editor
of The Democrat. She died in 1989.)

Bartow Air Base: From Municipal


Stepchild

By S. L. FRISBIE, IV.
Associate Publisher
To old time Bartowans, it is still
called Bartow AiyBase, but that is nei-
ther its first ni6r its current name.
Built in 1941 as an Army Air Corps
traini' base before the United
Staes Air Force became a separate
lrainch of the armed forces it first
!fvas known as Bartow Army Air Field.
Demobilized in 1946 after World
War II ended, it was turned over to the
/' City of Bartow by the General Services
.4? Administration, with the stipulation
that it must be used for airport purpos-
es.
It saw limited flight activity under a
fixed base operator.
Polk County's Air Base School for
Exceptional Children was its major'
community tenant, and about 30 of the
old World War II barracks buildings
were remodeled to provide triplex
apartments for post-war housing.
With America's involvement in the
Korean War in 1950, the federal gov-
ernment exercised its option to take
over the airport, and what then
became Bartow Air Base was operated
as a military training facility under
civilian contracts, first with Garner
Aviation for five years, then by Truman
Miller for another five years.
In 1960, BAB was deactivated in a
Pentagon economy move.
Unlike other cities, which fought the
military's abandonment, Bartow chose
to take back over the facility and use it
for municipal purposes.
For several years, it was operated as
a stepchild of city government, receiv-
ing a minimum of attention.
A fixed base operator managed the
flight-related activities from 1960 to
1967, and in 1964, the city applied to
the Federal Aviation Administration
for permission to establish an industri-
al park. With industrial park revenues,
the airport became largely self-sup-
porting, and some expenses of the city
manager's office were charged against
the airport, a way of bringing revenue
into the city budget.

While the airport held the potential
to be a major community asset, it gen-
erally languished from lack of atten-
tion, and grass grew up through cracks
in the runways like the parking lot of
an abandoned shopping center.
In July 1967, after considering and
rejecting a proposal by a group of
Bartow business leaders to lease the
airport and operate it under a non-
profit corporation, the city commission
sought and obtained a special act of the
Florida Legislature to establish the
Bartow Municipal Airport Industrial
Authority. Members of the authority
were then, and still are, Bartow's five
city commissioners.

It marked the rebirth of Bartow
Municipal Airport.
The airport authority leased the air-
port from the city for a dollar a year,
initially for two years. Renewal of the
lease has become a pro forma activity.
Benjamin L. Durrance, Jr., a Navy
Reserve pilot who had just finished
serving on the Bartow City
Commission, was hired by commission-
ers to become airport manager.
Under his leadership, what had
been a second-rate stepchild of city
government became what was widely-
recognized as one of the finest general
aviation airports in Florida.
Cynthia Terio went to work at the
airport as administrative secretary to
Durrance and his assistant, Bill
Renfroe, when she graduated from
Bartow High School in 1976.
When Renfroe retired, Cynthia
Terio Barrow was promoted by
Durrance to assistant manager.
After Durrance's sudden death in
1994 at the age of 59, the airport
authority, after an extended search for
a new manager, promoted Mrs. Barrow


to become airport manager, a job she
has held ever since.
In 40 years of management under
the airport authority, the airport has
obtained tens millions of dollars in
Federal Aviation Administration
grants, mostly for airport runway
lighting and surfacing improvements,
and millions of dollars in Florida Dept.
of Transportation grants.
In addition to helping pay for the
new terminal building, and the aircraft
parking area in front of it, these funds
have been used to build approximately
110 T-hangars for corporate jets and
smaller private aircraft, to build a new
entry road into the airport, and gener-
ally to convert a World War II Army air
field into a bustling general aviation
airport and industrial park.
(S. L. Frisbie, IV, has covered Bartow
city government and the renovation of
Bartow Air Base since 1964. Much of
the information on post-war years came
from a 1996 brochure published by the
airport authority.)

Murals Depict Vintage Military Planes


Military pilots whb trained at Bartow Army Air Field later Bartow Air
Base may get 'a sense of deja vu when they visit the airport terminal at
Bartow Municipal Airport.
Suspended from the ceiling are one-fifth scale models of P-51 aircraft, the
model used for training pilots at the facility.
Murals painted on three walls depict six trainer aircraft used at Bartow Air
Base, five different models of Mustangs, and three P-51s as they might look
when deployed for combat.


Raymond Waddey of Ocala, who specializes in painting murals of aircraft,
painted the murals. The cost to paint the murals for $6,500, plus another $600,
for color renderings of the three murals for purchase by visitors.
One of the combat-ready P-51s is painted with the distinctive markings of
the planes flown by the Tuskeegee Airmen, the all-black fighter unit that flew
escort for B-17 bombers in the latter years of World War II. The unit never lost
a bomber flying under its protection.
The murals, painted above eye level, are the dominant feature that greets
arriving pilots and diners.
The seal of the Bartow Army Air Field is painted on the fourth wall.
Photographs and other artifacts from the Army air field/air base days are
displayed in a museum in the new terminal.

Bartow Airport Has Possibilities


This article appeared in the first
issue of The Polk County Democrat on
Aug. 28, 1931.

By BRADLEY SCOFIELD

When the matter of an air port for
the city of Bartow was first agitated
several months ago, there was some
discussion as to the necessity for a
project of the kind in a community
with apparently as little aerial activi-
ty as then existed in Bartow.
It was felt by some that our geo-
graphical position precluded any pos-
sibility of the city's entering into the
field of air travel, due to the fact that
it lay almost exactly in the center. of
the state and well between the exist-
ing air lines in operation at that time.
At a joint meeting of the service
clubs of the city, together with a large
number of the leading citizens of the
city, the matter of securing a landing
field was discussed by a number of the


prominent fliers of this part of the
state, who flew to Bartow as the
guests of the city for that occasion.
It will be remembered that Paul W.
Grassfield, representative for the
State Bureau of Aviation was the chief
speaker and he was followed by such
others as L.R. Bentley of Lakeland,
P.J. Sones of Haines City and Lieut.
E.C. Nilson of Orlando.
The message brought by these avi-
ators was that the future method of
travel would be in the air and the
town that did prepare for it would cer-
tainly find itself more and more off
the beaten track as time progressed.
As the result of that meeting and
through the efforts of the committee
appointed, the Armour Fertilizer
Company gave to the city of Bartow
the tract of land which now comprises
Armour Field.
At very little expense to the city the
port was put in flying shape and
shortly afterward the dedication took
place upon the visit of the State Air

Tour. Planes of every make and type
were flown including the fast flying
squadron of naval planes from the
government training station at
Pensacola, which clearly demonstrat-
ed the fact that the port is large
enough to accommodate heavy air
traffic.
In the short time since the field was
opened, several Bartow men have
received and completed instruction in
flying and are now able to use this
splendid air port. The log book for the
port shows scarcely a day that some
aviator has not landed and taken off
from the field that was thought
unnecessary such a short time ago.
One does not have to be a seasoned
air traveler to appreciate Armour
Field.
A few trips to surrounding air ports
will convince you that there is not
another town in this part of the state
with so ideal a location.
Only one mile from the heart of the
city and on a main highway, with tele-
phone and restaurant service merely
for the asking, it is equipped most con-
veniently.
That it comes more and more into
use is inevitable and with a small
effort on the part of the people of this
city, great results can be obtained.
It is not only practical and possible,
but entirely probable that the United
States Government, will in the near
future, find it necessary to install a
cross-state or shuttle line to connect
the existing mail lines on each coast,
and on this shuttle line will be located
the terminal from which east and
west bound traffic will start north.
It is easy to see that following the
government lines will come the big
transportation companies and greatly
increased aerial activity.
It takes no great stretch of the
imagination to see the immense berry
crop, for which this part of the state is


famous, shipped via the air today and
in the market tomorrow, carried by
great air freighter with consequent
saving in loss from decay, and slow
transportation; and still less imagina-
tion to see this terminal situated in
Bartow.
Armour Field has or can have every
qualification necessary for the acquir-
ing of this important position if it is
the will of the people of Bartow.
The three main factors in the selec-
tion of this terminal will be the geo-
graphical position of a well-prepared
field, ease of access to telephone, tele-
graph, hotel and railroad accommoda-
tions and proper airplane hangar
facilities.
Armour Field has no apologies to
offer to any other air port in the state
on any of the points above mentioned
with the exception of a hangar for the
housing of the flying public.
As yet, no attempt has been made
along that line of development, but
the time is nearing when it will be of
vital importance to this city.
The erection of a hangar at this
time does not by any means guarantee
Bartow as a stop on the mail lines, but
it cannot help but be a great factor in
the selection of Bartow for a station
when in the future a terminal site is
found necessary.
It will however, bring to the city at
once an established flying school and
a larger portion of the flying public,
which though increasing all the time
is now passing by this city because of
the lack of proper housing conditions
for the planes used in travel.
Plans and estimates will be avail-
able in the near future for the method
and cost of erection of a hangar suit-
able for such a port as Armour Field
and it is to be hoped that Bartow will
be for once and for all placed perma-
nently on the map in this new era of
transportation by air.













Airport Budget Problems Same


As Yours: Taxes And Insurance Rates


Bartow Municipal Airport has a
budget of slightly more than $3.5 mil-
lion for the 2006-07 fiscal year, and
perhaps like yours, includes major
increases in real estate taxes and
property insurance rates.
The budget submitted by Airport
Mgr. Cynthia Barrow in July to the
city commission, meeting as the air-
port authority, totals $3,527,800.
It allows a 40 percent increase in
insurance and a more than 250 per-
cent increase in property taxes from
the 2005-06 budget.
While aviation-related property is
tax-exempt, industrial park property
is subject to property taxes, and.a
reassessment of property values
pushed the budget for that expense
from $66,000 in the previous year's
budget to $170,000 in the fiscal year
that began on Oct. 1. (The reassess-
ment was effective in the past budget
year, so actual taxes for 2005-06 were
$155,500, more than twice the
amount budgeted.)
Projected revenues are divided
almost evenly between the industrial
park ($1,704,000) and flight-related
operations ($1,823,800).
The primary source of industrial
park revenues is building rentals
($1,500,000). The primary sources of
flight-related revenues are sale of avi-
ation fuel ($1,150,000) and rental of
T-hangars and aircraft tie-down
spaces ($473,800).

the airport is supported solely by revenue it generates and government grants. Photo by Peggy Kehoe


With the completion of the new ter-
minal building early this year, the air-
port's next capital projects priority
should be repairing roads at the air-
port, Mrs. Barrow said. She said she


hopes the state will provide some
funding for road work.
The budget for salaries for the cur-
rent year is $845,000. Mrs. Barrow
said that figure allowed for pay raises
in the range of three to four percent.
Other five-figure expenses in the
budget:
Aviation and jet fuel (for resale),
$870,000.
Insurance (property, health, air-
craft), $348,000.
Capital expenditures, $300,000.
Security force, $140,000.
The budget has a $29,000 contin-
gency fund.
Although the airport is owned by
the City of Bartow, it is supported
entirely by the revenue that it gener-


ates and by grants from the Federal
Aviation Administration and the
Florida Dept. of Transportation.
Airport revenues pay all operating
expenses and provide matching funds
for FAA and FDOT grants for run-
ways, buildings, and other infrastruc-
ture improvements.
The federal government requires
that all airport revenue be used for
airport operations and improve-
ments; none is transferred to the city
budget.
The five members of the city com-
mission make up the airport authori-
ty, and meet on the second Monday
night of each month in the new termi-
nal building to oversee operations.

Industrial Park Revenue


Is Essential To Airport


When you say the word "airport,"
the first and perhaps only thing
that comes to mind is airplanes.
At Bartow Municipal Airport, that's
only half the story.
While half the airport's $3.5 million
in annual revenue comes from avia-
tion activities (primarily aviation fuel
sales and rental of T-hangars) the
other half ($1,704,000) comes from
industrial park operations (primarily
rents).
Most of the buildings on the airport
are occupied by industrial park ten-
ants, including government agencies.
Some of these leases are of build-
ings that were built in the airport's
early years as Bartow Army Air Field,
and later Bartow Air Base. But as
time has taken its toll on buildings
that date back as far as 75 years, an
increasing number of the original
buildings have been razed and
replaced by new ones, some built for
specific tenants, others to add to the
airport's stock of rental properties.
Occasionally the city commission,
in its capacity as airport authority,
has allowed a tenant to build its own
building, but for the most part, the
commission has chosen to build and
own buildings. This produces substan-
tially greater revenue over the years
than leasing only the land and allow-
ing a tenant to construct a building.
Several buildings are leased to avi-
ation-oriented businesses, but the
majority of the leases have no relation
to aviation.
Most of the leases are for a number
of years; a few are month-to-month. In
addition to the lease rates, tenants
pay for insurance for their buildings
and, with the exception of buildings
used for aviation-related or govern-
mental purposes, county ad valorem
property taxes.
The airport leases space in its new
terminal building to the Bartow


Flight Line Grill, which commission- Florida Dept. of Chi y man


ers hope will become a destination
that will draw both diners and pilots
to the airport.

Green Houses Are Springing Up!
... The Glidehouse
S j -- Most "green" houses are specially
.. .. designed for a certain spot. This
S.. green house is designed in such a
--I .... way that it could be put almost
anywhere.
-" ,. It is prefabricated, or made in parts
S.- that can be shipped to a building
.; site and assembled.
J -A. It was designed by architect
-- Michelle Kaufmann of California.
A green house like this is on dis-
.... .... ..... play inside the National Building
..... Museum, Washington, D.C.,
..- ...... through Juag 24,2007.


The Glidehouse got its name from the sliding glass doors along the southern front. Solar panels or
wind turbines could be added to generate electricity. Sliding wood panels help keep the heat out in
the summer and in during the winter. It.is single-story and small in size, so it takes up little space
and uses fewer building materials.


What "green" means
Are you green?
Recently we have heard a lot about
our Earth's problems with global
warming and climate change.
Many of us have decided to help.
Are you going green?
Being green means:
being sensitive to our environment.
recycling so we cut down on the
use of materials.
caring for and preserving our nat-
ural resources.
finding ways to save energy.
Did you know that houses are going
green, too?


Why green houses
We often think of cars as being big
energy guzzlers and polluters.
Houses are, too. Constructing, main-
taining and sometimes tear-
ing them down takes a lot of
the Earth's energy. II
Most of the houses people
buy today are built by builders who
use the same house plans over and
over wherever they build.
^But more and more
architects are thinking
green and building to suit a
special spot. Stores are selling "green"
things. The green idea is growing.


The Mini Page thanks architect Donald Albrecht, curator of the exhibit The Green House:
New Directions in Sustainable Architecture and Design. Thanks also to the educational
staff at the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C., for their help with this story.


What green houses
do

Use their land wisely without'
taking up lots of space.

* Stay comfy and dry, and not
damp and moldy.

Use the sun wisely. For example:
Planting a tree in the front yard cre-
ates shade in the summer and lets the
sun's rays in during the winter. Also,
including solar panels uses as few nat-
ural resources as possible to pro-
vide electricity.

Have clean, healthy air inside.

GREEN HELP
A NTE Building Green


The Earth's top five energy-
consuming countries
United States......... 23 percent
China ............... 11 percent
Russia ............. 7 percent
Japan ............... 5 percent
India ................ 3 percent
Most of our energy comes from
fossil fuels that might run out some-
day. We need to find a way
to get energy from sources that
will last.


One-quarter of all the energy the
United States uses is consumed in
our homes.
Here's where:
* heating water ....... 17 percent
* lighting appliances... 30 percent
* space heating and ... 53 percent
cooling

Make your home
greener
Here are a few things you
can do to help save energy
and make your home green.
1. Turn off the water when you are
brushing your teeth.
2. Don't leave the refrigerator door open
for a long time when trying to decide what
to eat.
3. Help your family plant trees and
shrubs that offer shade in the summer and
allow heating from sunlight in the winter.

Bamboo basics
Bamboo is popular with
"green thinkers," who like
a material source for
floors, furniture, fabrics,
fishing poles and many
other items made from a
type of grass that is one of
the fastest-growing plants
in the world.

There are more than
700 different species
(kinds). Some grow to be
only a few inches tall,
while others might grow to
a height of 100 feet in one
growing season!

Bamboo has a hollow,
woody stem (or cane). The
stem has hard joints.

Some are "clumping
bamboos." They do not
spread as fast. Their
stems, or canes, are usual-
ly about 1 inch across.

Othrsare nnig

Earth's Climate Change


Our planet is getting warmer.
Over the past 100 years, the average
global temperature has increased by
just over 1 degree Fahrenheit.
Experts say that it will likely
increase 3 to 7 degrees F in the next
100 years.
Even a little bit of temperature
change can cause problems.
Today, in some cold areas glaciers
are melting. Glaciers are rivers of ice
that stay frozen for hundreds of years.
Climate change and global warming
have planted green thoughts in our
minds.
Thinking green
Farmers are growing corn to
be used to produce a fuel
called ethanol. It's a fuel
source that we can grow.

Many businesses are looking for
ways to lower their energy use.
Families are thinking
of ways to save energy by
using less of it.
Using the
sun as an energy source
is becoming more popular.


What is climate
change?
We say there is climate change
when, over many years, there is a
change in such things as:
temperature
precipitation (such as rain
or snow)
winds.
What might cause cli-
mate change?
Natural causes can
change the climate, such
as changes in the sun's
brightness, or slow
changes in the Earth's
orbit around the sun.
Also, changes might occur -
in the oceans' way of circulating
their water.

Human activi-
ties, such as cutting i "
down trees and
forests, or burning
fossil fuels, can
change the makeup
of our Earth's surface and atmos-
phere.


What is global warm-
ing?
Global warming is an average
increase in the temperature of
the atmosphere near the Earth's sur-
face.
Some of the gases near the Earth
are called "greenhouse"
gases. These work
much like greenhouse ,
panels do when trap-
ping the sun's- .
warmed air inside.
Greenhouse gases are not all bad.
They help keep our Earth warm
enough for humans to live.
What are some green-
house gases?
Carbon dioxide is an important
gas in our atmosphere. It helps regu-
late our Earth's temperature. Plants
must get carbon dioxide in order to
live.
However, too many carbon dioxide
and other greenhouse gases are cre-
ated when we burn fossil fuels. Fossil
fuels such as coal and natural gas
create much of our energy. Thinking
green can help solve this problem.
