For Slow Tax Reform .... 1

State legislators heard from
plenty of citizens and local politi-
cians Wednesday night, all urg-
ing the .panel to move slowly
when considering tax reform dur-
ing special session next month.
With word of a bill asking for
as much as a 30 percent reduc-
tion in property taxes across the
board being considered, county
and city policy makers pleaded
with the panel to consider mov-
ing far slower.
:,:County Manager Mike Herr
a.d Lakeland City Finance
Director Greg Finch lead the
charge, explaining the municipal
blidgeting process, and how a
majority of services are paid for
b property tax funds.
While a 30 percent reduction
in, property tax revenues would
represent only one percent of the
total budget, Finch said since
many revenues are tied ,directly
to mandated projects services
(such as public safety and parks
and recreation) would feel the
brunt of the cuts.
'. "A 30 percent cut in property
taxes would result in a 9.25 per-
cent decrease in the general fund
budget," he said. "The public
would not tolerate a 9 percent
decrease in public safety, so let's
assume we left public safety
alone. This means a 20 percent
reduction in parks, public works
and administrative spending.
'This would require repealing

STAR Charter School, a school
for pregnant students and young
mothers, will not be open for
business next year.
The Polk County School Board
voted 6-1 to give STAR a 90-day
notice on May 7 that they would
not renew the STAR charter con-
tract.
STAR was under fire because
an audit revealed that the school
had reported 45 students as eligi-
ble for funding who were not
attending the school.
' This discrepancy forces the
school to return nearly $90,000 to
the school board, which will then
send it to the Department of
Education.
SPrior to the vote, officials from
the school implored the board to
reconsider, saying that they
admitted to administrative prob-
lems but were working to correct
them. They said that the misre-
porting of student attendance
was due to clerical error rather
than deceitful intent.
STAR had been criticized ear-
lier this year by the Charter
Review Committee because of
uncertified teachers and sub-par
academic performance. The com-
mittee also discovered safety con-


city ordinances in code enforce-
ment, public works and other
departments," he said.
County Fire Chief David Cash
spoke on public safety and
reminded the panel that it was
not only fire, police and
Emergency Management.
Services at work during the hur-
ricanes.
From communications inform-
ing the public to workers setting
up shelters and transporting res-
idents, the county worked togeth-
er during that difficult time, he
said.
"Any cut in local government
is a public safety cut," he said.
The panel heard from Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd to
service organizations funded
through partnerships with the
county to the library cooperative,
all begging to make smaller cuts.
County Manager Mike Herr
said the county currently has a
plan which allows for property
tax cuts of an eighth of a mill
when the growth rate is more
than 10 percent in the county.
For most of the panel, how
money was spent at the local
level was not as important as
finding alternative plans to pre-
sent during special session.
"I don't think we should be
micromanaging to local govern-
ments and telling you how to
spend your money," State Senator
Paula Dockery said. "I want to
make sure the inequities are
addressed."
The panel discussed the idea
of allowing residents to make


cerns on the property.
At the time those issues were
revealed, the school board had
.offered STAR one year to correct
them. The\results of the audit
caused most of the board mem-
bers to change their minds. 4
Board Member Kay Fields
cast the lone dissenting vote. She
expressed concern over how
STAR's current students would


partial payments, but County
Tax Collector Joe Tedder said an
installment method was in place
to allow for quarterly payments.
Allowing people to pay what
they want on installments would
make a for a difficult time setting
tax deed sales, Tedder said.
"How can we plan the budget
without knowing when people
will pay?" he said.
Tedder said for most people
who are buying a home, figuring
out an estimated tax bill should
be a simple matter, and should
not lead to a shock when the bill
comes.
"If you can't afford an $8,)00
tax bill in November, why did you
buy a $500,000 house?" he said.
Better assessment of property,
better assessment of niobile
homes, a rising cap on Save Our
Homes, and portability of tax
rates, were suggested as alterna-
tives by audience members.
A rumored plan to roll back
rates to five years, ago was met
with adamant disapproval from
local lawmakers.
"We can't stand a rollback,"
Polk County Commissioner Jack
Myers said. "We are going back to
the dark ages. There will be lay-
offs, and if you ever had to lay
people off, you know it's unpleas-
ant."
"We certainly hear you," State
Senator JD Alexander said.
"There are some inequities that
need to be addressed, and hope-
fully we can focus on that instead
of these broader issues."


be served next year.
School Superintendent Dr.
Gail McKinzie said that STAR
was welcome to go through the
appeals process, but it was neces-
sary for the school board to give
them the 90-day notice now so
that if the appeal failed, the
school would be closed before the
start of next school year.


STAR Plan Repealed


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

It may have taken longer than
they liked, but the crowd of
teachers who went before the
school board in April to oppose
the STAR program have finally
gotten their wish: STAR has been
repealed.
Originally, the state
Legislature required all school
districts to have a pay-for-perfor-
mance plan, but would only fund
the STAR program. After pres-
sure from teachers' unions from
throughout the state, the
Legislature has backed down,
planning to replace the STAR
program with the Merit Award
Program (MAP).


Teachers' unions are still not
completely happy with MAP, but
like it better than STAR.
In the meantime, Polk County
has tentatively agreed to no
longer use the STAR program
and to end the ranking of teach-
ers.
To accommodate the pay-for-per-
formance requirement, the dis-
trict will use the plan from last
year. The Legislature will now
use the money allocated to the
district for STAR $4.7 million
- to pay for the old plan.
Part of the negotiations that
involved STAR also included a
salary raise for this year.
Teachers will still receive this
one percent increase, which will
count as salary rather than a
one-time bonus.

West Bartow Apartments


Win Preliminary Approval


Bartow city commissioners
gave preliminary approval to an
84-unit apartment complex in
West Bartow, but final approval
may come with a couple of condi-
tions.
Commissioners passed on first
reading two related ordinances
on a 4.6-acre tract on the west
side of Crown Avenue, south of
Long Pool. One designates the
property as "high density resi-
dential" in the city's comprehen-
sive plan; the other zones it R-5,
which allows up to 20 apartment
units per acre.
The developer is 'seeking tax
credit financing to build "afford-
able housing," which will be rent-
ed at less than market rates to
low-income households.
Commissioner Leo Longworth
said that before the ordinance
comes up for a final vote, he
wants the developer to hold a
neighborhood meeting to hear
the concerns of neighbors.
"It would be difficult for me to
approve" the ordinance without a
neighborhood meeting, he said.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said he would see that the devel-
oper gets that message.
Commissioner Adrian Jackson
said he is concerned that the soil
is not adequate to support such a
large development.
The two ordinances will come
up for a public hearing at the
commission's June 4 meeting.
The commission also passed
on first reading ordinances to:
Rezone parcels of land next
to the historic L.B. Brown House,
about 1.1 acres; as recreation
and open space, to prevent devel-
opment of the property.
Rezone about half an acre of
land behind the Brooks veteri-
nary clinic on U.S. Highway 17

expansion of the building.
In other business, the commis-
sion:
Adopted a resolution chang-
ing the emblem that appears on

lic hearing.
Noted. Gerald Cochran's
complaints about poor mainte-
nance at Mary Holland Park;
being told that he could not pick

that city employees return from
job sites at least 30 minutes
before the end.0f the work day;
and that city employees are
allowed to take ice from city ice
machines for personal use.
Heard a complaint from Joy
Scriven that shot s were fired into
her mother's home on Tripaul
Court, and that the neighbor-
hood is not safe. "It was a mis-
take; it was meant for someone
else," she said. Police Chief Erik
Sandvik said that the police


department and the sheriff's
department are investigating the
incident.
Noted City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge's report that city hall
will be closed for the Memorial
Day holiday on May 28, and
garbage collection scheduled for
Monday and Tuesday of that
week will be moved back to
Tuesday and Wednesday.
S* Scheduled a second closed
meeting for May 31 at 5:30 p.m.
to discuss a lawsuit filed by
Highland Cassidy over a subdivi-
sion development.
At Longworth's request,
agreed to hold a joint meeting
with the Citizens Advisory
Committee.
Scheduled a strategic plan-
ning session for June 6 from
noon to 5 p.m. at Bartow
Municipal Airport.
Designated Commissioner
Pat Huff to recommend appoint-
ment of a non-voting member to
the county's Joint Airport Zoning
Board.
Agreed to Jackson's request
that the commission review the
city charter for possible updates.
Proclaimed May 20 to.26 as

A young Polk County Sheriff's
,deputy from Fort Meade was
seriously injured when he
crashed into a tractor-trailer
Thursday, May 24.
Southeast District patrol
Deputy Sheriff Robert Michael
Anderson, 21, was traveling
north on U.S. Highway 27 just
north of U.S. Highway 98 near
Frostproof Thursday around 9:45
p.m. when he crashed into a low-
boy, flatbed trailer being hauled
by a Volvo Freightliner, PCSO
spokesman Carrie Rodgers said.
The driver of the Freightliner
was attempting to make a U-turn
in a break in the median of the
highway, to head south on US 27,
when the crash occurred. The
trailer behind the truck was still
in the northbound lanes as the
truck was making the U-turn.
Preliminary information indi-
cated the deputy was traveling in
emergency mode, however, inves-
tigators could not confirm that,
Rodgers said. The speed limit on
that stretch of US 27 is 65 mph.
Anderson had to be extricated
from his marked Ford Crown
Victoria and was unconscious


after the crash, but was stabi-
lized and airlifted to Lakeland
Regional Medical Center. He suf-
fered bruises, lacerations, and
breaks to both legs. He is in sta-
ble condition but has not yet been
interviewed by traffic investiga-
tors due to his extensive injuries.
Anderson was hired in
September 2006.

Rescheduled For Nov.


Folk music will still be heard.
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's
(DEP) Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park today
announced new dates for the 55th
annual Florida Folk Festival.
Originally scheduled for May
25-27, the three-day music and
arts festival will take place
Veterans Day weekend, Nov. 9-11.
Since 1953, artists have come
together for one of the oldest
state folk festivals in America.
The Florida Folk Festival,
Florida's premier heritage event,
continues a grand tradition of cel-
ebrating Florida's land, people
and diverse cultural heritage
with performances each day by
Florida's greatest folk artists.
"After surveying performers,
artists, vendors, and local and
state partners, we concluded that
Veterans Day weekend is an ideal
time to reschedule the event,"
said DEP Secretary Mike Sole.
"We are confident that this deci-
sion allows adequate time for
planning, and we truly appreciate
the enthusiastic cooperation of
our festival partners and the
Florida Department of State to
help secure the new weekend
date so quickly."
DEP recently cancelled the fes-
tival because of concerns for visi-
tor safety due to the uncertainty
of approaching wildfires in the
area as well as air quality condi-
tions from the smoke. Only once
before, in 1973 because of flood-
ing of the Suwannee River, has
the festival been cancelled and


rescheduled.
"We are happy to have identi-
fied a new date, and we anticipate
the participation of the 20,000
people that traditionally come
from within and outside Florida
to celebrate our cultural her-
itage," said DEPs Florida State
Parks Director Mike Bullock.
Plans for the new dates in
November include combining the
festival with the park's Rural
Folklife Days events already
scheduled for the week prior to
Veterans Day weekend.
For updated information
please call 1-877-635-3655.
In addition, in the coming
months, the Florida Park Service
will be providing updated infor-
mation on its website at
www.floridastateparks.org.
The Florida Folk Festival has
remained one of the Sunshine
State's most popular heritage
events because of the wide vari-
ety of entertainment and activi-
ties available at the three- day
festival.
Historically, performers have
included national recording
artists, award winning song-writ-
ers, and musicians.
Located on the banks of the
Suwannee River, the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center State
Park honors the memory of
American composer Stephen
Foster.
The museum features exhibits
about Foster's most famous
songs, as well as a 97-bell carillon
tower playing concerts several
times daily.

There is such a thing as a free
bunch of flowers, trees and
shrubs thanks to a one-of-a-
kind program that benefits gar-
deners, sheltered workshops and
the environment.
Free Trees and Plants.com,
started in February 2004, obtains
from growers and nurseries some
of the millions of unsold plants
that are destroyed each year,
hires workers with disabilities to
package them and then sends the
plants for free to anyone who
orders them at www.free-
treesandplants.com.
Consumers pay for processing
and shipping costs, $7.95 for each
unit of plants.
"This spring planting season
has posed a difficult challenge for
growers and gardeners alike. We
have thousands of perennial
plugs, trees, shrubs and bare root
perennial plants to find homes for
in the next few weeks. Gardeners
from across the country could
help by reserving one of the more
than 90 varieties of perennials,
shrubs and trees featured this


spring," said Cheryl Richter, a
garden writer and photographer
who created the program with
her husband, Greg, in their home-
town of Lincoln, Neb.
The Richters' industry con-
tacts advise them of plants that
have not been sold and are sched-
uled for destruction.
They then obtain the plants at
little or no cost and arrange for
delivery to sheltered, workshops
that provide employment for
workers with disabilities. The
workers process and package the
items for shipment using packag-
ing systems devised by the
Richters.
A visit to the website reveals a
bounty of offerings, including
evergreen, flowering and shade
trees, perennials such as
columbine, fountain grass, and
hostas, shrubs that range from
viburnum to mock orange.
"Everything shown has been
selected as an easy-to-grow gar-
dening or landscaping favorite,"
added Greg Richter.

Practice Pool Safety For Summer Fun


Summer safety is more than
remembering sun screen when
going outside.
It's about being informed and
prepared when going in or near
water, especially at your local
pool, lake or beach. Many local
outdoor pools will open for the
summer.
The following tips are impor-
tant to note to reduce the chance
of an unfortunate event:
Learn to swim. The best
thing anyone can do to stay safe
in and around the water is to
learn to swim this includes
adults and children.
The American Red Cross has
swimming courses for people of
any age and swimming ability. To
enroll in a course to learn or
improve your ability to swim,
contact your local Red Cross.
Never leave a child unob-
served around water. Keep your


eyes on the child at all times.
Adult supervision is recommend-
ed.
Install a phone by the pool or
keep a mobile phone nearby so
that you can call 9-1-1 in an
emergency.
Learn CPR and insist that
babysitters, grandparents, and
others who care for your child
know CPR.
Post or ask your homeown-
ers association or apartment
complex to post CPR instructions
and 9-1-1 or your local emer-
gency number in the pool area.
Keep toys away from the
pool when it is not in use. Toys
can attract young children. into
the pool.
For homeowner's with pools:
enclose the pool completely with'
a vertical-bar fence with a self-
locking, self-closing gate.
Openings in the fence should be


no more than four inches wide.
The house should not be included
as a part of the barrier, and never
leave furniture near the fence
that, would enable a child to
climb over the fence.
*,Always keep basic lifesaving
equipment by the pool and know
how to use it. Pole, rope, and per-
sonal flotation devices (PFDs)
are recommended.
Pool covers should always be
completely removed prior to pool
use.
If a child is missing, check
the pool first. Go to the edge of
the pool and scan the entire pool,
bottom, and surface, as well as
the surrounding pool area.

Celebrate No Tobacco Day By Quitting


People from other cultures are
surprised at what Americans are
reluctant to eat.
After years of culinary adven-
tures abroad, I tend to share
their thoughts. Foods popular in
Other countries but not with'
Americans include an animal's
*innards, stinky cheeses and
'many vegetables rich in impor-
tant antioxidants and fiber.
Given these aversions, the rel-
ative speed with which
Americans have not only accept-
ed but have enthusiastically
embraced edamame is striking.
Certainly, when I first tasted
these bright green, plump and
sweet-tasting soybeans while
Dining in a Japanese restaurant
in 1995, I never dreamed that
today I would be suggesting
Using them in a salad to serve
Over the Memorial Day weekend.
Indeed, it took us nearly 10
Years just to learn how to pro-
nounce "ed-a-MOM-eh." Still,
most- supermarkets now sell
Them frozen both in the shell and
Shelled, raw or fully cooked and


even in a dry-roasted snack ver-
sion.
Most Americans first discov-
ered edamame at Japanese
restaurants that presented them
as an appetizer before sushi.
Their mild, slightly sweet fla-
vor won people over. It probably
helped that popping them out of
their fuzzy pods was fun, too.
Then we learned that edamame
are as easy to use at home as
frozen green beans.
Shortly after this, soy mad-
ness hit, thanks to news that eat-
ing soy foods could help reduce
blood cholesterol levels and can-
cer risks, and even relieve
menopausal symptoms.
But many of these claims have
been contradicted by more recent
studies, so it's probably best to
consider edamame as one more
vegetable, among many, to
include in your diet for pleasure
as well as good nutrition.
While research to support
these benefits has not turned out
to be as conclusive or as positive
as anticipated, soy remains the

Tobacco is the second major
cause of death in the world. It is
responsible for the death of one in

smoking trends continue, it will
cause approximately 10 million
deaths each year by 2020. Half
the people that smoke today-that
is about 650 million people- will
eventually be killed by tobacco.

Editorial


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

Commando Calvin at 1


As the nation pauses this week to recog-
nize the men and women in uniform who
have lost their lives in the service of their
country, we repeat what is for us a familiar
editorial theme:
When Americans are committed to the
battlefield, they must have the resolve of
the nation, and in particular its political
leadership, to see them through to victory.
In a nation which prizes human life
above everything else, there must be no
lesser commitment.
For many nations, war is a way of life ...
a war won today, a war lost tomorrow,
another war fought the next day. In some
regions, war is viewed in the way that
Americans view a major football rivalry.
America does not take such a casual atti-,.
tude.
When this nation commits troops to the'
battlefield, it does so and must do so -
with the resolve to win.
America lost the war in Vietnam -
those words stick in the throat, but they
must be said not because of the lack of
skill, courage, or determination of the
American soldier. It was lost because the
American people, from Main Street to the
White House, lacked the will to win.'
Indeed, in that debacle, victory was hard
to define, because there was never a clear-
ly-defined mission.
We recall a popular anecdote of that era,
probably untrue but nonetheless illustra-
tive:
A military scholar entered all the infor-
mation about the opposing forces, and the
American casualties versus enemy casual-
ties, into a computer to determine who
would win the war. The computer's analy-
sis: America had, already won the war two
years earlier.
What President Nixon called "peace
with honor" was defeat, a defeat that
reflected the lack of a commitment to vic-
tory by the American people, including the
President.
America's leadership decided that it was
not a war worth winning, and by that deci-
sion, betrayed the American soldiers
whom it had committed to the battlefield.
The war in Iraq and Afghanistan has
been compared to the war in Vietnam.
While there are uncomfortable parallels,
there are major differences:
The objective to establish a democra-
cy in Iraq and to destroy terrorists in


BARTOW After several
days, I was finally able to read
the entire 2007 City of Bartow
Morale Survey by Dr. Mel Jurado.
It took me two days (several
hours a day) to read the entire
report. Needless to say, what I
read shocked me, even though I
had already been told of some of
the problems by friends and fel-
low employees I had worked
with and known a long time.
Their comments just scratched
the surface it would appear.
It is reported that rumors say
Mayor (Brian) Hinton and Dr.


Afghanistan is clear enough.
The intelligence leading up to the inva-
sion of Iraq was clearly flawed; the only
"weapons of mass destruction" turned out
to be Saddain Hussein and his henchmen.
The world is clearly a better place without
them in power. American forces were not
welcomed as liberators at every turn.
Rocket-propelled grenades developed
decades ago have taken a heavy toll of
America's sophisticated weapons, as have
improvised roadside explosive devices
and suicide bombers.
Another major difference is that the
3,000-plus American lives lost, while trag-
ic, is but a fraction of the losses incurred in
Vietnam. That is in part 'a reflection of
.body ?~mor widely used in Iraq, and part-
ly of the increasing success of military hos-
pitals in treating the wounded.
And unlike in Vietnam, American troops
in Iraq, by and large, believe in what they
are doing. They measure success in terms
of schools and other infrastructure built by
American forces.
Perhaps most important, while America
is divided on the wisdom of the war, it is
largely united in support of the troops who
are fighting it. The war is not popular; the
troops are.
History will judge whether the war is
worth the cost in American lives.
But let us resolve that those lives were
not be lost in vain because of posturing in
a Presidential campaign; because of a vote
to cut off funds to our men and women on
the battlefield; because America lost inter-
est in its troops..
Let us resolve that history will never
again conclude that America abandoned
its soldiers by losing the commitment to
victory.

Jurado had "conspired" to get
(City Mgr. Joseph J.) DeLegge by
use of this survey. That's totally
foolish and untrue.
I had spoken to Mayor Hinton
and former Mayor (Rosie)
Thornburg about some of the
problems within the city that 1
had been informed of prior to the
survey being ordered. Take my
word for it, the survey needed to
be done, even at the cost of
$17,000. Now I can just hope that
the city commissioners act imme-
diately on what they ordered and
paid for.


: Anyone questioning the
actions of the city commission in
ordering this survey and any
actions they take in response to it
need only to obtain a full copy of
the survey and read it. 1 think you
will be amazed at what you read.
The city attorney, George
Dunlap, I hate to see him go. He
is a good and honorable man and
a class act.

MICHAEL O'NEAL
(Editor's u ole: Ihe lc writer i a
retired Bartow police captain.)


At first, they were Pete and Re-
Pete.
Two precious little boys.
Ready grins.
Big blue eyes that can see right
into your soul.
A loving, trusting nature.
In their baby pictures, which
my son-in-law provides in copi-
ous numbers, I still cannot tell
which is which.
But this week, as Calvin cele-
brates his first birthday, he has
assumed his separate but equal
status among our grandchil-
dren. 1
Calvin James Holton -
named for his maternal great-
grandfather, Calvin |
Grossenbacher, and his E
father, Jim Holton is our
second grandson.
Parents, grandparents,
uncleS and aunts understand
this truth as no one else can:
the heart expands to embrace
each new baby; there is no
limit to our capacity to love.
And when I write about
my children and grandchil-


dren, I am merely your surro-
gate, for you love yours as
much as I love mine.
Liam, now four-and-a-half Il
years old, is tall and thin, tak-
ing after other men in the Frisbie-
-olton family. Tall lasts; thin is
another thing.
Calvin, who turns one on the
real Memorial Day, not the one
that Congress declared, has
always been on the cutting edge
of growth. Meal-for-meal, he can
outeat his big brother.
Like all little folks, his lan-
guage is a series of babbles. He
understands and responds to a
few words; he has mastered "Hi,"
also "Bye-bye," with a wave, but
mostly he babbles.
His other grandfather, Mickey
Holton, visited him this past
week.
They took turns babbling to
each other, and if Mickey didn't


understand each babble, Calvin
surely did.
SCalvin is happy most of the
time; when he is not, he lets the
world know about it.
His little Cheerio round mouth
forms a square almost a per-
fect square and he inhales
deeply. Look out world, here it
comes.
W-a-a-a-h!
More food; give me back my
toy, Big Brother; change my dia-
per; pick up my spoon. Whatever


it is, it all comes out as W-a-a-a-h!
The interaction between these
two little grandsons is a joy to
watch.
Liam builds things with
blocks; Calvin knocks them over.
It is a shared manifest destiny.
They both love to talk to their
Aunt Peggy. Liam simply
announces that it is time to call,
and can dial (remember when
phones had dials?) the number
himself.
Calvin announces "Puh-Puh"
to his Mama, Carolyn, and listens
intently when Aunt Peggy's voice
comes from her answering
machine. He has to be reminded
to leave his message.
Liam is a great nap-taker; he


gets that from his GranMary and
Granddaddy. Calvin thinks
sleeping is only for nights. He
sleeps well through the nights;
daytime is for playing.
Calvin is a toddler-in-training.
He holds onto tables and chairs,
and takes one wobbly step after
another. He walks halfway
around our coffee table, then
plops down on his little butt and
crawls under the table to return.
He has an impish little grin,
even more so than his big brother,
which is saying a lot. He.
loves to give zerberts. You
know, zerberts. He puts his
mouth against you and blows
out.
A zerbert.
It is a somewhat more
polite sound than that other
sound. Which he also enjoys
emitting.
The other day, when Jim
-brought him to the office, he
had just waked up. I held
him in my arms, and he cud-
dled, as only a baby can cud-
dle. Then he snuggled his
face down against my arm.
I peeked down at him, and
he was grinning, hiding from
the rest of the world.
He loves voice toys ...
horns and things. He treats each
as a microphone. This kid is
going to take after his
Granddaddy.
He has a commando crawl that
only his brother can keep up
with; I have tried. He does living
room to bedroom in 20 seconds
flat.
I think his big brother said it
well:
"Liam is Calvin's favorite per-
son; Calvin is Liam's favorite per-
son."
I have often quoted what my
Dad once told me many years
ago:
Babies are God's way of show-
ing us he still cares.
Thank you, God. Amen.


ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Squeaky Weather Women


What in the world is going on?
All of a sudden on the TV net-
works we are bombarded with
weather reports given by little
squeaky women who sound like
they have just completed a course
with the Mickey Mouse School of
Broadcasting.
What could possibly be the
reason for this? One would think
that sounds in the lower register
were more expensive than those
that sound more like a mosquito
than a human.
I am glad that Miss Minnie
Meeker isn't around to be
exposed to this.
Miss Minnie was a very tall,
erect white-haired lady who
taught glee club at Memorial


Junior High School in Tampa
when I lived there. She was strict,
especially about the way her stu-
dents used their voices.
She had a girls' glee club made
up of first and second sopranos
and altos.
There were no singers who
came in sounding like a squeaky
hinge and got to "sing" at compe-
titions. Anyone who sounded
like present day female broad-
casters would have been sent to a
doctor to have their voices low-
ered.
I don't know who selects these
women with the squeaky voices
to do the weather, but I suspect
that they have some deep seated
psychological problem dating


back to their childhood. Maybe
they think this is "cute."
Maybe they had the hots for a
woman who sounded like Lauren
Bacall or Tallulah Bankhead and
were turned down in their youth.
Maybe they heard that women
with high squeaky voices use less
electricity.
I am glad that my rooster
weather vane on the top of the
garage is still working after being
up there for over 40 years. At
least, I will always know from
which direction the wind is blow-
ing.
I guess if it is raining, we can
all tell.

William C. Wilkinson


William
Wilkinson

William C. Wilkinson, II, 82,
died Sunday, May 27, 2007, at
Bartow Regional Medical Center
from heart failure.
Born Sept. 18, 1924, he grew
up in Charlotte, N.C.
While attending Davidson
College, Wilkinson was called
into active service in the U.S.
Army. As a second lieutenant he
was a platoon leader in General
Patton's Army.
He was wounded in service
and returned to the states in
1944.
He married Joy Morgan in
1945. After being discharged
from the Army, he graduated
from the University of Alabama
and then received his M.B.A.
from the Wharton School of
Business at the University of
Pennsylvania.
He began his career with
Jefferson Standard Life
Insurance, Greensboro, N.C., as
an investment officer. In the late
1950s, the Wilkinsons moved to
Bartow, where Mr. Wilkinson
worked for J.K. Stuart as his per-
sonal investment advisor.
In the late '60s the couple
moved back to Greensboro, where
he returned to Jefferson Pilot as
an executive vice president.
Mr. Wilkinson retired in the
early 80s and the couple
returned to Bartow in the late
'90s where the were reunited
with many wonderful friends.
He spent the last several years
of his life at New Horizons
Assisted Living Center, Winter
Haven.
He is survived by his wife of 61
years, Joy Morgan Wilkinson of

Communities that host church
retreats and conventions can
count their blessings and the dol-
lars the faithful pump into local
economies, a new University of
Florida study finds.
Pilgrimages, retreats and con-
ventions are fast becoming one of
the most reliable and desirable
forms of income for the travel
industry, said Harrison Pinckney,
IV. He did the study for his mas-
ter's thesis in UF's department of
tourism, recreation and sports
management. Participants usual-
ly bring along their families and
stretch their visits over three to
four days, making a mini-vacation
out of the affair by shopping, vis-
iting museums and eating out,
Pinckney said. He is now working
on a doctoral degree in recreation,
parks and tourism at Texas A&M
University.
"There may be 80,000 people in
town, but they're not the kind to
show up at bars and drive home
drunk," he said. "Because they
have their kids with them they
might go to a family restaurant or
catch a movie afterwards."
Another advantage of these
religious gatherings is they are
less likely to be canceled because
many churches' bylaws require
congregations to hold annual con-
ventions, Pinckney said. "After
9/11 there was a decline in atten-
dance at professional conferences,


but the numbers stayed steady
for church conferences and in
some cases even increased," he
said.
Although greater attendance
at large church-oriented events is
part of a broad social trend,
Pinckney focused on black
churches in his study.
Historically, the church has
assumed great importance to
blacks because it was one of the
few places in society that wel-
comed them, particularly before
desegregation, when black-owned
businesses were rare, he said.
"More than just a church, it
became whatever the African-
American community wanted it to
be a civic center, an after-
school program and then a sum-
mer camp, even a homeless shel-
ter," he said.
Pinckney distributed question-
naires at seven Church of God by
Faith congregations in Florida
and Georgia during 2004. A total
of 102 participants returned the
surveys at the end of the church
service or gave them to their pas-
tors the following week.
Eighty-two percent reported
having traveled to at least one
Church of God by Faith national
event. Sixty-one percent said they
attended the four-day national
convention for its entire length,
while 26 percent said they were
there for three days. The remain-


ing 13 percent of churchgoers
reported going for two days, with
no one reporting a shorter visit.
While at the conventions,
churchgoers reported sampling a
variety of outside events such as
sightseeing, shopping, visiting
family or friends, and attending
local performances or sporting
events. The most popular activity
was shopping, with 30 percent
reported heading for retail out-
lets, followed by visiting family
and friends, 21 percent. Attending
sports events was least popular,
attracting only 5 percent.
Like major sporting events,
church-oriented special events
have been a financial boon to
cities, with some attracting more
than 80,000 visitors at a time and
generating as much as $18 mil-
lion for the local economy,
Pinckney said. MegaFest, a reli-
gious event in Atlanta, draws
about 150,000 a year, he said.
Lori Pennington-Gray, director
for UF's Center for Tourism
Research and Development and a
professor in UF's tourism, recre-
ation and sports management
department who supervised
Pinckney's research, said the
travel industry is recognizing the
importance of such events by
assembling more meeting plan-
ners specializing in this type of
market, she said.
Because church-oriented spe-


cial events operate on such a
grand scale, they must usually be
planned at least a couple of years
in advance, Pennington-Gray
said.
"That makes them less vulner-
able to fluctuations in the econo-
my than segments of the leisure
market where people's discre-
tionary income is affected if the
economy takes a downturn," she
said.
DeWayne Woodring, executive
director of the Religious
Conference Management
Association headquartered in
Indianapolis said a survey con-
ducted by his organization shows
that the number of religious
meetings grew 195 percent in the
past 10 years.
"Meetings are becoming more
and more important because
within this increasingly complex
and global society, people feel a
need to meet others with whom
they share a common faith, bond
or purpose," he said.
Locally, Lake Aurora Christian
Camp and Retreat Center brings
more than 10,000 people to the
Lake Wales community each year
with events that are hosted there
and has been doing so for the past
60 years.

"The Great War," 1914-1918


Remembering America's Soldiers


What does Memorial Day mean to
you? The beginning of summer, or a hol-
iday from work and school or the
day the swimming pool opens? While
all those things, are true, Memorial
Day is actually a solemn national holi-
day, when we remember America's
fallen soldiers.
Decoration Day
At its beginning, shortly after the
Civil War, the day was called
Decoration Day. A group of Union vet-
erans established Decoration Day as a
time for our nation to decorate the
graves of soldiers with flowers.
After World War I, however, the hol-
iday came to honor all of those who
have died serving in America's wars.
This year, many of us will be think-
ing of those who have fought and are
fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan. We
will honor them for their service.






if



A special ceremony is held at Arlington
National Cemetery near Washington, D.C.
on Memorial Day. President Bush places a
special wreath at the Tomb of the
Unknowns, where in 1921 the remains of a
World War I veteran were buried. Later,
unknown soldiers from World War II and
the Korean War were buried nearby.


World War I Memorial
./ ./.


I


Liberty Memorial is the nation-
al monument to World War i; it
opened on Nov. 11, 1926. On
Dec. 2, 2006, the National
World War I Museum opened
below the memorial tower.


To commemorate Memorial Day,
The Mini Page visited the National
World War I Museum at Liberty
Memorial in Kansas City, Mo. We
wanted to find out more about "the
Great War."


World War I
World War I started in Europe in
1914 and spread to many European
countries, including Germany, Russia,
Britain and France. The United States
remained neutral, or uninvolved, in
the war until 1917, when Germany
began torpedoing U.S. ships supplying
materials to Britain. In April 1917,
President Woodrow Wilson asked
Congress to declare war on Germany.
In the trenches
Today, soldiers in Iraq and
Afghanistan often fight the war on
city streets and from large military
vehicles, airplanes and helicopters.
But in World War I, much of the fight-
ing was done in the countryside from
trenches dug into the ground.
Soldiers in the trenches lived
among mud, rats and lice. Huddled
just below ground level, they would
watch for enemy soldiers anct taKe
shots at them. Sometimes they wouic
SraId the other side s trenches.








Soldiers in World War I used cannons that
were pulled into position by a team of
horses or moved by tractors. They used
horses for transportation too, along with
trucks and vans.

World War I

Songs and Lyrics
Your parents or grandparents r s
might be able to sing these pop- / _
ular tunes from World War I. -,
"Paree" was slang for Paris, and
"Over There" referred to
Europe. Many of the soldiers had never traveled far
beyond their homes, so going overseas was a big adven-
ture for them.

"Over There" (George M. Cohan)
Over there ... over there ... Send the word, send the
word over there
That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming...

"How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down on the Farm
(After They've Seen Paree)"?
(Sam M. Lewis, Joe Young and Walter Donaldson)
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree?
How ya gonna keep 'em away from Broadway
Jazzin' around and painting' the town
How ya gonna keep 'em away from harm, that's
a mystery.

"Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag"
(George Asaf and Felix Powell)
What's the use of worrying? It never was worthwhile.
So pack up your troubles in your old kit bag,
And smile, smile, smile.


From where to "Over There"


Just like today, with American soldiers
fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan,

World War I. How many World War I
soldiers were from your state? Which

More About World War I


Memorial Day poppies
In the spring of 1915 in France,
John McCrae, a surgeon, had spent
17 days taking care of wounded and
dying soldiers. He sat on the back of
an ambulance and wrote a poem
that has become very famous. From
where he sat, he
could see red poppies
springing up among
the nearby graves.
When he finished it,
McCrae threw the
poem away. Another '
officer found it and sent it to news-
papers
in England. It was published in
Punch magazine in London in
December 1915.

"In Flanders Fields"
(Lt. Col. John McCrae, 1872-1918,
Canadian Army doctor)
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row o
on row, if"T


That mark our place;
and in the sky
The larks, still bravely
singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the
guns below.


Lt. Col.
John McCrae


We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow.
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
:n F!anders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep. though poppies grow
in Flanders fields.


The Mini Page thanks Denise Rendina,

A special Christmas Eve
In 1914, German, British and
French soldiers had fought to a
stalemate (a point where neither of
them would budge) along the
Western Front, a 475-mile line
reaching from the English Channel
to the Swiss Alps. On Christmas
Eve, soldiers along parts of the
trenches sang Christmas songs to
each other. On Christmas Day, they
stopped firing
at each other
and held
church services.
A few soldiers
even met their ( '
enemies and

I-ail gifts or
paayea a game oi soccer.
America's soldiers
Almost 4 million American sol-
diers came from every walk of life
and many nationalities.
In 1918, African-Americans made
up 13 percent of the U.S. soldiers in
the war. They were segregated, or
separated, from units of white sol-
diers.
Armies used wired telephones
to communicate between the
front lines and headquarters and


ul Um. Ull Lb.


Early airplanes were
used to gather infor-
j nation about the
e see or enemy and to shoot
down enemy aircraft,
along with dropping
small bombs that the
pilots threw over the
side of the plane.









To keep the enemy from hearing
their plans, they often used
American Choctaw Indians to speak
in their native language as a code.
German intelligence was never able
to break the code.
About 25,000
women served over-
seas as doctors,
nurses, drivers and
secretaries. Others
worked as telephone operators so
close to the front lines that they kept
their helmets on the backs of their
chairs.
The Treaty of Versailles
Finally, in November 1918,
Germany asked for a cease-fire. After
iong negotiations, the Treaty of
e -rsailles was signed near Pans on
-ine 28, 1919, by the French.
i:.f.i h Italian and German leaders.
and by President Wilson. The treaty
took away much of Germany's power
and its overseas territories.
Nearly 30 million people were
killed or injured worldwide in World
War I. Nine million people died.
Today, there are only a few living
World War I veterans in the United
States.

Next week, The Mini Page suggests some
great books about fathers.
