DeLegge Resignation Agreement Calls for One


Year's Salary; Vote Likely Tomorrow Morning


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Associate Publisher

An agreement under which
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
would submit his resignation and
continue drawing his salary for
one year instead of being fired
and getting a six-month sever-
ance package has been agreed to
by Mayor Brian Hinton.
The next step is for the entire
city commission to consider the
brokered resignation at a special
meeting, tentatively scheduled
for Tuesday morning at 9 at city


hall.
Hinton said both he and
DeLegge were satisfied with the
terms, which were negotiated by
Interim City Atty. John Murphy
and his law partner, George
Dunlap. Dunlap resigned last
month when it appeared that
DeLegge would be fired. Murphy
was on vacation for much of last
week, and Dunlap assisted in the
negotiations for that reason,
Hinton said.
Under Florida's Government
in the Sunshine Law, city com-
missioners may not discuss terms


of the agreement with each other
except at a public meeting.
Hinton said that Murphy has
contacted at least four of the com-
missioners to outline the terms.
Several city officials, including
Hinton, Murphy, DeLegge, and
Commissioner Leo Longworth,
were on vacation last week or are
on vacation this week, and it has
been difficult at times to main-
tain communication, Hinton said.
DeLegge notified commissioners
on Friday that he was going on
vacation and would return on
June 22.


At their June 4 meetii
missioners voted 3-t
instruct Murphy to draw
lution terminating DeLeg
considered at the comn
June 18 meeting. Commit
Adrian Jackson and Ja
Clements voted for the
tion, and Longwortl
Commissioner Pat Huf
against it.
Hinton cast the decidi
to have the resolution
saying he was doing so 1
the issue to a vote.

County Institutional Zoning


Plan Draws Opposition From Cit


Bartow city commissioners want county
officials to do a better job of trying to get
along with their neighbors in East Bartow.
The county has a number of facilities in
East Bartow, including a jail, a juvenile
offenders facility, administrative offices, and
the old Polk General Hospital complex.
For many years, presence of the county
facilities - especially the custodial institu-
tions - has been a sore point with residents
of the Greentree subdivision, and the issue
surfaced again last week in response to a zon-
ing ordinance.
The zoning board has recommended zon-
ing 74 acres of land owned by the county as
PI (public institutions). Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers said that 70 percent of the property
already has public institutional uses.
"We don't want it," Prince Crawford, a


Greentree resident and community activist,
told the commission.
The land once was agricultural, and the
county facilities have brought heavy traffic
through the residential area, he said.
East Clower Street was extended on the
south side of the county facilities for the pur-
pose of handling vehicles going to and from
the county's buildings, but county employees
are not abiding by the county's commitment
to route its traffic on that street, he said.
Crawford said residents also oppose the
plan to build a work release center next to the
jail, and said that facility could go next to the
South County Jail at Frostproof.-
Mayor Brian Hinton asked Wiegers what'
control the city has over what goes on the
remaining county property in the area.
Wiegers said the county must obtain building


permits, but that there is no require
review by the zoning board or for publ
ings.
Commissioner Leo Longworth encc
county officials to meet with East Bar
idents and discuss their concerns.
"We can't do anything to st

development of the area. The city c

Negotiations began Tuesday
morning, the day after the vote to


Joe DeLegge


draw the dismissal resolution
was taken. Discussions took place
between Hinton ald Murphy,
between Murphy and DeLegge,
and between Dunlap and
DeLegge, Hinton said.
The resignation would become
effective on approval by the city
commission.
If all five commissioners can
be contacted today, the special
meeting will be held Tuesday
morning, Hinton said. Attempts
to call the meeting for 5 o'clock
this afternoon fell through
because not all commissioners
could be reached.
Assuming that the agreement
is approved by the commission,
the next item of business will be
to appoint an acting city manag-
er, who will serve in that position
during the search process for a
new.city manager.


City Vehicles Will

Display New Emblem


Bartow's vehicles and letter-
head will soon bear a new
emblem: the logo that features
an outline of the historic court-
house.
That logo, developed by the
Bartow Marketing Partnership,
focuses on the city's history, with
the words, "Our history comes to
life."
That black-and-white emblem
will replace a green, pink and
black logo with an oak tree at its
center and azalea blossoms on
the edges.


The new logo is used in signs
throughout the downtown area,
and "ties everything together,"
Commissioner Brian Hinton said
in recommending that the new
logo be phased in.
His fellow commissioners
agreed to the change.
The logo will not replace the
"Urbs in Rure" (City in the
Country) seal with a pineapple
at its center that was sketched in
the city's first charter and
appears on the city's official seal.

Clear Springs Seeks Annexation


Of Additional 6,500 Acres


Bartow's city limits grew by more than
11,000 acres overnight with the annexation
of much of the Clear Springs Land Co. prop-
erty in 2001.
Now Clear Springs wants the city to annex
the remaining 6,500 acres of its holdings.
The 2001 annexation of 11,112 acres start-
ed north of the city, adjacent to Bartow
Municipal Airport, and wrapped around the
east side of Bartow, going as far south as
County Road 640 east of Homeland.
Now the company wants to have the
remaining 6,564 acres of its holdings brought
into the city limits. That property is general-
ly south and southwest of the city.
Jura Zibas, president of Clear Springs,
said "there are several advantages to us" to


have the company's entire 17,676 acres
annexed. She said the company wants the
land brought into the city before Clear
Springs completes its "sector plan process" for
developing the acreage.
Commissioners made no response to her
request, which she made at Monday after-
noon's commission work session. The usual
procedure is for annexation requests to go to
the planning and zoning board for a recom-
mendation.
In other business, the commission:
* Designated Dave Clark and Keith Hall
as Bartow's voting members on the county's
joint airport zoning board, and designated
Pat Crisman as the city's non-voting/alter-
nate member.


* Passed on final reading two ordinances
to rezone property behind Dr. Tim Brooks'
veterinary clinic to allow expansion of the
clinic, and two ordinances to preserve land
adjacent to the L.B. Brown home for parking
and recreation use.
* Approved amendments to the city bud-
get.
* Approved an agreement with the Florida
Dept. of Corrections providing for cooperation
between the department and Bartow police in
dealing with defendants on probation and
parole.
* Designated Commissioner James F.
Clements to recommend someone for appoint-
ment to the code enforcement board.


John Murphy, law partner and
son-in-law of George Dunlap,
who resigned as city attorney
after 35 years rather than
become involved in the move to
dismiss City Mgr. 'Joseph J.
DeLegge, was appointed acting
city attorney by the city commis-
sion Monday night.
Murphy has been designated
as assistant city attorney, as have
other, partners in the firm of
Boswell and Dunlap. Murphy has
filled -in most often during
Dunlap's infrequent absences
from commission meetings.
He told the commission that
he would bill the city at his regu-
lar rate for legal services. Dunlap
was paid a salary of $81,161.39
for the part-time position.
The city attorney is one of only
three employees hired by and
answerable directly to the city
commission; the other two are
the city manager and the inter-
nal auditor.
"I'll serve during this interim
period if you wish," Murphy told
the commission at a work session
Monday afternoon.
He presently represents the
cities of Winter Haven and Lake
Alfred. Commissioners voted
unanimously and without discus-
sion to appoint Murphy. Nothing
was said about when or how the
commission will fill the position
on a permanent basis.
After his appointment,


Murphy told the commission that
he was designating Drew
Crawford as assistant city attor-
ney.
Murphy's appointment came
at a time of crisis in city govern-
ment. Dunlap submitted his res-
ignation on May 22 after commis-
sioners received a consultant's
report on city employee morale in
which the consultant recom-
mended that City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge be fired.
Dunlap, who was not men-
tioned in the report, said he chose
to resign rather than "participate
with the City Commission in the
actions recommended by the sur-
vey."
Murphy advised the commis-
sioners that "you are somewhat
hamstrung in how you can deal
with employees," because the city
charter prohibits commissioners
from trying to influence the city
manager in personnel matters,
and from giving instructions to
employees who answer to the
manager.
He suggested that the com-
mission could examine that pro-
vision in the city charter and pro-
pose an amendment.
While meetings of two or more
commissioners are open to the
public, commissioners can talk to
the city manager privately in
one-on-one meetings, Murphy
said.

The Counseling Corner
From the American Counseling Association

Depression Can Be Serious for Seniors


Depression is a very real and
serious health problem for many
elderly people, yet one often
ignored or overlooked. Too often
we incorrectly assume that being
depressed is just part of the
aging process. Depression at any
age, however, is a health problem
that needs to be treated.
Recognizing true depression in
the elderly can be difficult. For
many older people there can be
numerous reasons for feeling sad
- the recent loss of someone
close, increased health problems,
lessened social opportunities,
financial worries or numerous
other problems the elderly can
face.
The key is recognizing the dif-
ferences between simple sadness
and actual depression.
Depression is more than just an
emotional low point. It's a life-
altering problem that can dimin-
ish every aspect of a person's life,
and that can even lead to suicide.
Real depression is character-
ized by an ongoing, persistent
mood. It's not just having a sad
day or two, but rather facing a
continual emotional low that
interferes significantly with daily
life functions and activities.
If you suspect that someone
may be suffering from depres-
sion, there are a number of signs
to look for. They include with-
drawing socially, losing interest
in pleasurable activities and
ignoring personal care and
hygiene. A depressed person
often has sleep problems, per-
haps difficulty falling asleep or
waking repeatedly, then suffering


from daytime sleepiness.
Depression can also upset nor-
mal eating patterns. There may
be a lack of interest in food and
subsequent weight loss, or binge
eating and sudden weight gain.
Depression can leave the per-
son feeling discouraged, hopeless,
and worthless. There may be lit-
tle energy, no interest in things
around him or her, or perhaps
high levels of anxiety, feelings of
guilt or constant irritability and
demanding behavior.
If someone you care about (or
you yourself) is displaying such
symptoms over an extended peri-
od of time, clinical depression
could be the cause and it requires
action. There can be a variety of
reasons for depression to strike,
but the main thing to know is
that depression just doesn't cure
itself. It often worsens, always
takes the joy out of living and can
be life-threatening.
Seek help. While clinical
depression is a serious problem,
the good news is that once identi-
fied, there are a variety of effec-
tive treatments available.
Consult with a counseling profes-
sional or other mental health
professional to find out more
about dealing with this issue.

survey of City of Bartow employ-
ees. She was prohibited from
delivering the entire statement
by the three-minute time limit
imposed on speakers.

"Attacks" have landed at my
doorstep regarding the employee
survey. I feel the need to respond.
Here are the four allegations peo-
ple have been kind enough to
share with me, and my responses:
Allegation 1: The survey was
slanted to find the negative.
All 35 ranked (strongly agree,
agree, disagree, strongly dis-
agree) survey items were worded
in the affirmative. If anything,
the "slant" is toward a positive
outcome.
In the open-ended questions,
team members were asked to
identify the "positives" of their
department and the "positives" of
the City.
Other questions looked for
proactive solutions: "How can
teamwork be improved?" "What
type of recognition would you like
to see offered?" "What can you do
to make the City and your job bet-
ter?"
Additionally, gentlemen, the
survey was discussed item by
item with your labor-manage-
ment team, of which Mr.
DeLegge, Ms. Weldon, Mr.
Sandvik, and Mr. Hutto were a
part. The document wasn't, in
question then; but now anything
will be said to discredit the
results.
Allegation 2: The process was
a set up to get rid of Joe DeLegge.
I had no relationship with the
City of Bartow prior to this sur-
vey; and, I didn't come looking for
the City of Bartow. The City of
Bartow approached me. I was
first contacted to be one of three
invited contractors to make a pre-
sentation to the labor-manage-
ment committee. My name was
brought up in the committee by a
member who has a relative who
participated in the Polk County
survey I administered last year.
I met with the labor-manage-
ment committee, as did the other
three contractors. By vote, the
labor-management committee
selected me to administer the
survey.
I provided a rough working
draft to the committee based on
what they identified as challenge
areas. The committee added addi-
tional questions and the survey
was reviewed item by item by the
committee and unanimously
approved.
It may be pertinent at this
point to share with the commis-
sion that in the course of my
graduate studies, I was required
to master graduate level courses
in test and survey design; validity
and reliability assessment;
administration of survey/test doc-
uments. This is the first time in
over two decades that my survey
documents have been challenged
and the administration ques-
tioned.
One of the ways we distinguish
our organization from others is in
"how" our surveys are adminis-
tered. We meet face-to-face to
ensure a professional and serious
tone. We read each question one

by one, giving survey participants
an opportunity to anonymously
score their surveys. We read the
open ended questions and give
participants an opportunity to
write their comments.
We then give participants an
opportunity to candidly share
comments about the survey: "Is
there anything we didn't ask that
we should have?"
Per requests from your labor-
management committee - they
were concerned people would
want time to reflect and may
have additional items to share -
a memo was sent out ahead of the
survey by Mr. DeLegge overview-
ing the process and letting
employees know what the open-
ended questions would be.
Employees were told if they want-
ed to bring written comments, e-
mail the administrator, or phone
the administrator, all forums
would be acceptable. The goal
(then) was to hear your employ-
ees' hearts and concerns.
The third allegation: The sur-
vey - It's all lies.
SAt this point, people have had
more than 2 weeks to review the
document. Not one person has,
been able to step forward with the
allegation that either their posi-
tive comments or negative com-
ments were left out of the docu-
ment.
This report was not altered by
this administrator. It was
authored in total by your employ-
ees. My job, per the contract, was
to give you unedited what your
employees said - no editorializ-
ing, no changes, no amendments.
The second obligation I had to
the commission and the labor-
management committee, per the
agreement, was to make summa-
ry comments and recommenda-
tions; and I did that.
And the final allegation: It's
unprofessional.
I'm known for my professional-
ism. Select any one of my clients
worldwide and ask them. My rep-
utation stands on it's own.
However, seven different
departments have called con-
cerned that your assistant city
manager, in the midst of her
tyrannical meetings this past
week, shared how "unprofession-
al" the administer was to share
results of the survey.
Once a commissioner asked for
the report, it became public
record. I provided reports to each
commissioner, your city manager,
your city attorney, your clerk, and
your labor-management
Committee. Your clerk, abiding by
Florida statutes, shared the
report with the press.
The reason I immediately
shared a copy with the co-chair of
your labor-management commit-
tee is it had been decided that
they would be briefed and receive


copies at the same time as the
commission.
I know the rules change fre-
quently in Bartow, but that is
what I had been told had been
decided upon. Also, once the docu-
ment is public record, Ms Weldon
failed to respect employees are
part of the public. They were told
by her they had no right to view
the document.
It is disheartening that this
entire process is turning suspect
as the negative detractors receive
the spotlight and time needed to
quiet the employees who dared
speak out against a corrupt sys-
tem. Since the survey administra-
tion employees have been taunted
and threatened, yet rather than
convene a meeting and address
the issue, the attitude was
"What's another week matter?"
Twenty-nine of 35 ranked
items scored 30 percent or higher
on the disagree or strongly dis-
agree. Whenever a workforce has
items where 30 percent-plus of
the workforce find challenging, it
becomes reportable; 82 percent
cited favoritism as a key concern.
Don't believe your employees?
Do you believe the pictures?
The same theme ran through
the 16 areas surveyed - leader-
ship. People weren't complaining
about having to work or wanting
extravagant raises. They were
requesting, pleading, begging for
the harassing workplace prac-
tices to stop.
As for this administrator, my
business has been built upon my
integrity, my impeccable creden-
tials, and dedication to doing the
right thing.
I will at this point reiterate
that in 22 years, I have never pre-
viously made such a recommen-
dation and it was not done lightly.
I hope these responses answer
any questions you may have
about the survey. It's not about
this administrator or the survey
tool used - it's about the 310
employees who did what you
asked of them and informed you
of their horrific work environ-
ment.
Unfortunately the harass-
ment, unfair labor practices, and
callous disregard reported across
department lines indicates clear-
ly trust with the current adminis-
tration has been destroyed at
their own hands.
Please don't let your employ-
ees and citizens down.
If you allow your "leaders" to
continue the barrage, I will most
assuredly stand, with your
employees and fully inform those
in leadership beyond your city
limits of the full-out harassing
labor practices currently prac-
ticed in Bartow, Florida.

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

A Racket Without Compare


In a few days, America will
honor fathers.
It is a racket without compare
on the nation's calendar.
Fathers Day.
The closest thing I can think of
to compare it with is playing
"Hail to the Chief" for the
President of the United States.
You've got the most powerful
job in the world, a big house in
Washington, a private helicopter
to take you to your private jet,
Secret Service agents to protect
you for the rest of your life, and a
salary equal to a junior varsity
defensive backfield coach in a
Class 2-A college football team.
Okay, maybe the pay isn't
great, but it's still a pretty good
job. And on top of everything
else, they play your own funky
march for you everywhere you


All this, so who
own march?


needs your


Fathers Day is a lot like that,
and I speak from experience. I
have been a father for more than
40 years.
I have five children - three
born into our family and two
who had the good sense to marry
into it. When I speak of father-
hood, I speak with authority on
that subject as on few others.
Most of the time, I say that
Mary and I have five children,
but Isuppose that Fathers Day
gives me the opportunity to claim
them as solely mine, as if they
were somehow the product of
spontaneous combustion, and
not a marriage of nearly 44 years
to my bestest college girlfriend.
As a young man, I wanted
what most men with an ego
want: a decent job, a comfortable
home, maybe a promotion or two
in the military, and the chance to
hold a few positions of leadership
in my church and my communi-


ty... the type of jobs that don't
pay anything but look good in
your obituary.
But it was when I became a
father in 1965 that I realized that
the greatest achievement a man
can attain does not come through
commerce, or the military, or the
community.
STo help shape the life of a.
child, and then another, and then
another ... this is opportunity.
This a blessing equally accessible
to all men.
That rot all men rise to the
occasion is unfortunate, but we
live in an imperfect world.
Fatherhood is its own greatest
reward. To know the love of a
child, this is a blessing beyond,
compare. To have this honor mul-
tiplied by the birth of grandchil-
dren is a blessing beyond
description.
And for this there is a day to
honor us?


Congress Should Get


Moving on Water Bill


It is past time for Congress to pass a
water bill that will funnel millions of dol-
lars to Florida for important projects,
including the massive Everglades restora-
tion plan.
The need for this legislation is under-
scored by the record-setting drop in the
water level in Lake Okeechobee earlier this
month.
For seven years, a water bill that con-
tains funding for projects from California
t6 Florida-has~'languihed in Congress. The
riulti -bihl'liordollar-"bill, first posted in
2000, is now in the hands of a conference
committee that is trying to negotiate differ-
ences between the House and Senate ver-
sions in order to pass the legislation.
Approval of the measure 'is way over-
due.
U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, R-District 14,
who represents drought-stricken South
Florida, is just one lawmaker who is frus-
trated at,the stalled negotiations.
The legislation covers hundreds of
water-related projects throughout the U.S.
It may mean water for a new dam in
Arizona or a dike in North Carolina.
In Florida, it means\ money for
Everglades restoration, a project for which
the state government already has commit-
ted $3 billion. Congress was supposed to
approve matching funds but so far has sent
the state'only $300 million. Meanwhile, the
condition of the Everglades continues to
deteriorate. i


.Last year, both the House and Senate
passed a bill, but it died in conference. This
year could finally see passage, but not
without pressure from both the House and
Senate.
Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez have
both offered strong support for the bill.
Martinez has called it one of the most
important pieces of legislation for Florida
and a bill that will have a lasting impact on
our ecosystem.
This kind of performance by Congress.
- allowing a bill to go without action for
seven years - is a major disservice to the
nation. If Congress goes one more year
without passage of this badly needed leg-
islation, voters should - and likely will -
voice their displeasure in the 2008 elec-
tions.


ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Petunia T. Cruiser: Street Legal Again


When I was doing real estate, I
leased a car from a dealer that was
perfect for me. It was a silver P.T.
Cruiser and I thought it was beau-
tiful.
I named her Petunia T. Cruiser.
She had all kinds of room in her
and was just the right size for four
or five people.
. I was returning home in her one
evening at dusk late last year after
joining some relatives at a restau-
rant for dinner. I was in the left turn
lane, waiting for the turn arrow
and just as it came on, a car filled
with teenagers came around the
corner in front of me and knocked
the living daylights out of me and


Petunia.
It's a good thing I always fasten
my safety belt - always, without
fail.
A friend who'runs the filling sta-
tion on the corner came rushing out
to help me out of the car. I couldn't
get out on the driver's side because
it was bashed in. I wound up facing
in the opposite direction.
It was the day after Christmas
and the police must have been real-
ly busy, because it was almost 11
o'clock when they arrived on the
scene. I felt like ground meat. My
daughter-in-law, Carol, came to
wait with me.
I told her I wished the police

Production quickly returned to
normal at. the big Noralyn Mine
yesterday after 300 workers
returned to their jobs after a
"wildcat" strike on the weekend.
Management of International
Minerals & Chemical Corp. called
the strike "illegal." A labor

rized."
A bold, ambitions thief was
interrupted in mid-foray by
patrolling police officers last
night, and fled empty-handed
from the Imperial Lumber Co.
yard on U.S. Highway 17. If the
officers had been a few minutes
later, the burglar would have
made away with a lucrative haul:
102 pieces of equipment valued at
a total of $1,268.65.

Roaring flames, fed by 72 gal-
lons of kerosene, consumed two
sinkhole-swallowed homes in
Richland afternoon, clearing the way for
the start of filling operations.
Bartqw firemen, using kerosene

After months of negotiation
and political debate, and with the
cooperation of the county com-

board has acquired the
International Minerals &

All five Bartow city commis-
sioners say they definitely will
resign rather than comply with
the financial disclosure law that
was passed by the Legislature on
Friday, but none of them are sure
when they will do so.
Culminating nearly three
months of investigation by
Detectives Richard Riley and
Robert Yates, with the assistance
of confidential informants, a
score of Bartow households were


awakened in a series of pre-dawn
raids Friday, and police served
felony arrest warrants for sale of
various illegal drugs.

would hurry because I wanted to
go to the hospital and have my
chest removed. Luckily, that wasn't
necessary and the bruises went
away in a couple of months.
Poor Petunia was a mess. She
looked like she was ready for the
junk yard.
The whole front end was bent
and broken. The insurance man
called me and said he would send
her to a dealer who had a really
good repair shop. I couldn't believe
that anyone could fix that car, but
they did. They kept it for about a
month and when I got it back, I
couldn't tell it had ever been in a
wreck.
I only found out later what a
surprise Petunia had in store for
me.
When I decided to get out of real
estate, I paid the dealer for the bal-
ance of my rental agreement. I did-
n't give it another thought until
Saturday.
My son, Blake, whose birthday
in February is the day after mine,.
came over and parked his P.T.
Cruiser behind mine in the drive-
way. We have to get new tags or
stickers on our birthdays every
year.
"Did you know your tag has
expired?" he asked. I didn't know
that. Usually the state sends you a
notice when your tag has expired.
I went to the tag office and told
them I had come to renew my tag,
and that I didn't get a notice about
it. They said they didn't even have
that car in my name, and that it
hadn't been registered for over a
year.
. The dealer didn't bother to tell
me that I would have to get a new
tag. I had been driving without a
valid tag for more than a year.
That really gave me the cold
shivers. I have worked for the
F.B.I., the Florida Highwnay Patrol,
and the Dekalb County Police
Dept., and I try to be a law-abiding
citizen.
I am relieved to report that 1 am
now legal and Petunia is, too. I
hope there will be no more surpris-
es.

The deadline to apply for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) special-opportunity fall
hunts is June 13.
Special-opportunity hunts
offer hunters vast areas, abun-
dant game, low hunter quotas
and chances to bag deer, hogs and
released quail on some of the best
public hunting areas in the state.
Speyial-opportunity deer and
wild hog hunts take place on Fort
Drum (Indian River County),
Lake Panasoffkee (Sumter
County), Triple N Ranch (Osceola
County) and Green Swamp West
Unit (Pasco County) wildlife
management areas (WMAs).
Released-quail hunts take place
on Blackwater WMA-Carr Unit
in Santa Rosa County.
Hunters may apply for these


permits at any license agent or
tax collector's office or submit an
application at www.wildlifeli-
cense.com. Application work-
sheets are available at
MyFWC.com/hunting.
Demand for these hunts is
typically greater than the num-
ber of permits available, so a ran-
dom drawing is conducted to
select applicants. Hunters can
improve their chances of being
selected by submitting as many
nonrefundable $5 applications'as
they want.
If selected, the cost of the
hunts ranges from $50 to $175.
Visit MyFWC.com/hunting for
more information on how to
apply for special-opportunity
hunt permits.

The Money Business
How Banks Work
NICKEL!
DEPSTIN A How BanksWor


Piggy banks
Do you have a
bank account or a
piggy bank?
When people put,
or deposit, money in
a bank, it doesn't just
sit there as it does in your piggy bank.
Banks are businesses that use money
to make more money.
Banks take in money
What happens to the money you
deposit in a bank?
It is not put in a special drawer
with your name on it.
Using a computer, HE
a bank teller will THE DEPOSI
credit your account
with the amount
you deposited. Your
deposit is put in
with all of the
money collected on
that day.
Some part of this money will be
held "in reserve," or set aside for safe-
keeping. The other part will be put
to work.
Banks loan money
Banks are in the money lending
business.
They make money by charging fees
and interest for the money they lend.
When customers borrow money,
they pay back the full amount, plus
some more for the use of the money.
This extra money is called "interest."


Parts of a check: Your Name Here - 100
Your Name Here -<-t-r . 100
1. The person or busi- 1234 Address Road 79-123/759
ness that gets the Your City, State USA Date 20
money.
2. The customer's ePayto orr _____ $
account number.
3. Amount of check in Dollars
figures and words. YOUR BANK < "3
4. C k . Your City, State USA
4. Check number.
5. Bank's identifica- Memo
tion number: a coded 1:07si5901231i: , 1234,5 100
address by which
checks are returned to the proper bank.
6. Name of the bank where the check writer has money.
7. Name of the person writing the check. 8. Signature of the person writing the check.


Checking accounts
Many people have check-
ing accounts. They deposit
money and then write
checks. The checks are
written orders to
banks to pay money to
certain people or busi-
nesses.
Checks keep bank customers from
having to go from place to place to pay
bills. Sometimes banks charge for this
service.
Banks use these accounts to
attract savings and loan customers.


Savings accounts
When people put their money in
savings accounts, the banks pay the
savers for the use of their money.
For example: Pretend that you put
$10 in a savings
account. BANKS PAY
The bank might pay SAVERS FOR
you 5 percent interest. THEIR
Your $10 would earn MONEY.
you 50 cents in interest,
and your account would have a total
balance of $10.50.
Interest is the money paid to you
for letting the bank lend
your money BANKS MAKE
For example: Pretend MONEY BY
CHARGING
that you borrowed $10. BORROWERS.
The bank might charge
you 8 percent interest. Your $10 loan
would cost you an added 80 cents.
Your loan would be a total of $10.80
cents.
So interest is also the amount of
money you are charged to borrow
money

A student teller stamps a deposit receipt
for a student depositor.
Banks in schools are a great way
for kids to learn banking skills at an
early age.
In many cases, these banks are
staffed by students. Students apply
for jobs such as teller or bank man-
ager. Students take the role of cus-
tomers and learn how to make
deposits and open accounts. Most
student banks are open before school
starts or during lunch.

4+ 11' [ are about 8,000 banks. Some
S-f are large banks with branches,

can be run.
Banks have many people working behind the scenes using computers to
keep track of all the accounts.
Here are just a few of the employees you might see:
