Philip's Building Lawsuit


Settlement in Prospect


A proposed settlement of
a lawsuit brought against
the City of Bartow by owners
of the Philip's Department
Store building in the 300
block of East Main Street
will be considered by the
city commission tonight.
The cost to the city:
$120,000, plus another
$30,000 to be paid by the
city's insurance company.
Nelson Construction, the
general contractor for the
Main Street project, report-
edly will pay $80,000 to the
owners.
Neil O'Toole and Richard
McKinley are owners of the
building, part of which
began leaning precariously
during the redesign and
reconstruction of Main
Street last year. They filed
suit against the city, alleging
that disturbance of the sub-
soil caused the severe crack-
ing in the east wall.
'Inverse Condemnation'
Their lawsuit also sought
compensation from the city
for "inverse condemnation,"
denying owners use of the
building without following
property condemnation
procedures.
The city will pay $120,000
on the "inverse condemna-
tion" claim for the owners'
loss of rental income and
use of the building during
the period in which the con-
demnation action was
alleged to be improper,
Interim City Mgr. Linda
Culpepper said. The city's
insurance company will pay
$30,000 for a claim of negli-
gence against the city.
Nelson Construction
reportedly agreed to pay the


owners $80,000, a figure that
McKinley verified.
The owners of the build-
ing presented reports from
engineers saying that when
the contractor began break-
ing up the sidewalk in front*
of the building, a building
.that is nearly a century old,
it disturbed the stability of
the soil beneath the walls.
While the building had
shown cracks for a number
of years, the cracks wors-
ened dramatically during
the Main Street project.
Work was halted lest vibra-
tion from further sidewalk
reconstruction and milling
of the street surface cause
further damage to or col-
lapse of the building.
The owners reached an
agreement with the
Community, Redevelop-
ment Agency on financial
assistance to shore up the
building so that work on the
street could be resumed.
The structural repairs have
been completed, and work
on a total renovation of the
building is progressing.
The commission will
consider approving the
negotiated settlement
tonight.
City Budget
Also on tonight's agenda,
Ms. Culpepper will present
the proposed 2007-08 city
budget to the commission.
The budget includes a
nine-percent reduction in
property taxes as mandated
by the Florida Legislature's
tax relief legislation passed
last month. That is the max-
imum reduction required by
the lawmakers for cities and
counties.


Because the majority of
the city's revenue comes
from operation of the elec-
tric system, ad valorem
property taxes are a much
smaller proportion of the
Bartow's revenues than for
most cities.
The commission will
schedule work sessions for a
detailed review of the pro-
posed budget.
The commission will
hold a work session at 4
o'clock this afternoon - an
hour and a half earlier than
usual - to begin discussing
the process for hiring a new
city manager, and will
reconvene for its regular
business meeting at 6:30.

Charter Review
Also at the work session,
the commission will discuss
appointment of a charter
review committee, and will
consider submitting a nom-
inee for a "Municipal
Official of the Year" award.
Other items on the agen-
da for the regular business
meeting:
* Appointment of mem-
bers to a charter review
committee.
* Approval of the city's
annual fire protection con-
tract with the Polk County
Commission, under which
the city will be paid $84,399
to provide fire coverage for
unincorporated areas out-
side the city limits.
* Public hearings and
final action on two related
ordinances readopting
Bartow's stormwater utility
tax and setting the rate of
the tax for the coming year.

Empty rockers with pink and blue balloons were displayed during Saturday's celebration by
residents against the closing of the obstetrics service at Bartow Memorial Hospital. A sign at the
display read, "What will our history be in the next 125 years without our babies?"


Polk Doctors Ask State To Intervene in OB Closure


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Associate Publisher

The Polk County Medical
Assn. has asked Florida's
Agency for Health Care
Administration to intervene
in Bartow Regional Medical
Center's decision to termi-
nate delivery of babies at
the hospital on July 28.
The PCMA's executive
board voted unanimously
on Thursday night to ask the
hospital to seek to delay the
closing of obstetrics ser-
vices until the end of the
year.
"This would allow expec-
tant mothers in the second
and third trimesters, cur-
rently under the care of a
Bartow obstetrician, to
deliver their babies at near-


by Bartow Regional Medical
Center, as was their expec-
tation," the PCMA said in a
press release.
. Dr. Ralph Nobo, one of
two ob/gyns in private prac-
tice in Bartow, is a member
of the PCMA's executive
board and a past president
of the organization.
At this point, the PCMA is
seeking only a delay in the
closure of the OB depart-
ment, not a reversal of the
decision, Dr. Nobo said.
The organization's posi-
tion is that "it is not in the
best interests of the area,"
he said.

A Lot of Influence'
Dr. Nobo is uncertain
how much authority ACAH
has to delay the closure,


"but the agency has as lot of
influence."
The PCMA is an organi-
zation of more than 400
Polk County physicians, and
is affiliated with the Florida
and American Medical
Associations. It has been in
existence for 97 years. Dr.
Jorge L. Gonzalez is presi-
dent.
The executive board has
19 members. Twelve attend-
ed the meeting Thursday
night and voted unani-
mously to ask ACAH to
intervene, and two others e-
mailed their support of the
effort, Dr. Nobo said.
The organization "advo-
cates for physicians and
their patients on health care
issues," the press release
said.


The president of Health
Management Associates has
been contacted and asked
to reconsider the action, Dr.
Nobo said, but has not
announced a decision.
Justin Davis, chief execu-
tive officer of BRMC,
announced two weeks ago
that the OB department
would be closed on July 28.
He said the volume of births
at the hospital - about 300
per year - is not sufficient
to support the OB depart-
ment and its nursing staff.
Davis also said that
because the Bartow hospital-
does not have a neonatal
intensive care unit,,some
expectant mothers choose
either Lakeland Regional
Medical Center or Winter
Haven Hospital, both of


which have NICUs.

How Many Are Needed?
Neither Davis, Dr. Nobo,
or Dr. Mario Encinas, the
other Bartow ob/gyn in pri-
vate practice, would say
how many births per year it
takes to make an OB depart-
ment financially feasible.
Davis said a hospital needs
a minimum of 1,000 to 1,200
births a year to support an
NICU.
Dr. Nobo said that OB
services are so essential to
the community that the
department should be
maintained, even if it is not
profitable.
Dr. Encinas said that the
community pride of having
babies born in Bartow
should be considered.


Nobo and Encinas, who
vigorously oppose closing
the OB department, took
issue with Davis' statements
on both the NICU and the
feasibility of maintaining
staffing for an OB depart-
ment on a 24/7 basis.
Dr. Nobo said that the
lack of an NICO at Bartow
"has never ever been an
issue, never ever." He said
the hospital has "a great
transfer team" that can rush
newborns in distress to a
hospital with an NICU,
often by helicopter.
And both doctors say that
the nurses in the OB depart-
ment are assigned to other
areas of the hospital when
there are no newborns or

Bringing back another
tradition, Cypress Gardens
has announced a partner-
ship with Sunshine
Celebrations of Lakeland to
host weddings in the historic
botanical gardens.
Since the park reopened
in 2004, more than a thou-
sand requests to hold wed-
dings at Cypress Gardens
have been logged by park
employees. The first such
wedding was held in January
of this year, as the park
opened the botanical gar-
dens for a U.S. Marine
injured while on duty in Iraq
and his bride.
With the success of this
wedding fresh in their
minds, park officials were
very receptive to Sunshine
Celebrations proposal to
coordinate wedding cere-
monies at the park, a


spokesman said. Pleased
with the vast experience in
event planning by Sunshine
Celebrations owner Angela
Newell, the park reopened
for wedding ceremonies in
June, with the company as
the parks exclusive wedding
coordinator.
At the height of its popu-
larity, Cypress Gardens host-
ed more than 300 weddings
a year. Most were held in the
botanical gardens gazebo,
which soon became known
as The Love Chapel. The
Greek-inspired structure is
surrounded, by fountains
and stands at the top of a
gentle rise, a focal point for
the most famous view of the
gardens.
For information on hold-
ing a wedding at Cypress
Gardens', contact Sunshine
Celebrations at 581-1965.

Be Safe On The Road This Fourth Of July


The Polk County Democrat 3


By Dr. Steven Stylianos
Chief of Pediatric Surgery,
Miami Children's Hospital
The Fourth of July is one
of the most heavily traveled
holidays, and as people
embark on vacations, family
picnics and parties, excite-
ment often takes prece-
dence over driving safety.
With Independence Day
falling on a Wednesday this
year, the celebration period
could be extended, resulting
in even more dangerous dri-
ving. These four tips will
help ensure a safe and
happy Fourth of July.
* Do not drink and drive.
You've probably heard it
before, but with the number
of alcohol-related deaths
increasing 2.4 percent with-
in the last year, people don't
seem to be getting the mes-
sage.
Drunk driving kills -
alcohol was involved in 280
motor vehicle deaths over


the Fourth of July holiday in
2005.
Sadly, all of these deaths
could have been prevented
if the driver had simply
called a, cab (it costs far less
than a DUI penalty) or des-
ignated a sober driver.
* Buckle up. Wearing a
seat belt is the single most
effective way to reduce your
risk of injury in a car crash.
In 2006, more than half of
the motor vehicle occu-
pants who were killed in a
motor vehicle crash were
unbuckled. When used
properly, seatbelts reduce
the risk of fatal injury to
front-seat passengers by 45
percent and the risk of mod-
erate-to-critical injury by 50
percent.
* Watch your speed.
Speed contributed to 30
percent of all fatal crashes in
2005, according to statistics
from the National Highway
Traffic Safety
Administration, and injuries


in crashes involving speed
were usually much worse
than those that were obey-
ing the speed limit.
Your Fourth of July cele-
bration will still be going on
when, you get there, so
remember to slow down.
* Give your car a check
up.
Before heading out of
town for Independence Day,
make sure the car is ready
for the trip - check your
tire pressure, fluid levels,
lights and cooling system.
Also make sure you've
packed properly - nothing
should be packed in the dri-
ver's view or where it could
fall into the driver's way.
Stopping this Fourth of
July from becoming another
one for the record books is
as simple as this.
Enjoy the fireworks this
Independence Day; don't
create them - follow these
four steps to a safer holiday.


Tea Ceremony Planned


Red-Eared Slider Turtles

May No Longer Be Sold


Beginning July 1, people
no longer may purchase
red-eared sliders - com-
mon pet store turtles.
A new rule passed by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) prohibits selling the
species.
However, anyone who
already has a red-eared slid-
er may keep it, under the
new rule.
"This exemption was
included to allow owners of
red-eared sliders to keep
their turtles and discourage
them from releasing this
nonnative species into the
wild," said Scott Hardin,
FWC exotic species coordi-
nator. "We want to encour-
age people to protect our
native turtles. Red-eared
slider turtles interbreed
with Florida's native yellow-
bellied sliders."


Red-eared sliders already
in captivity will not be
allowed to breed, so any off-
spring will have to be sur-
rendered to certified red-
eared slider adopters or
dealers, or euthanized.
People still can buy and
sell albino red-eared sliders
and others with unusual
color variations, often
known as pastels.
"These colorful varieties
are more expensive and
unlikely to be released,"
Hardin said.
Dealers can apply for per-
mits to import red-eared
sliders to ship out of state or
sell to permitted turtle deal-
ers or breeders in Florida,
but imported red-eared
sliders may not be sold as
pets in this state.
FWC will issue permits to
qualified research institu-
tions and exhibitors to pos-


sess red-eared sliders.
The new rule also
requires a solid fence or
planking buried at least six
inches under the ground for
red-eared sliders kept out-
side.
Owners of pet red-eared
sliders may not acquire
additional specimens, and if
their turtles reproduce, they
should destroy all eggs
before they hatch.
FWC is working to estab-
lish a pet adoption network
for nonnative fish and
wildlife, including red-eared
sliders.
If you have questions
about your pet red-eared
slider or are interested in
becoming a certified
adopter of unwanted non-
native pets, contact Jenny
Novak at 1-850-926-0128.


Polk Museum of Art will
host a demonstration of the
traditional Japanese Tea
Ceremony on Friday, July 6,
at 3 p.m.
A lecture by Dr. Robert
Phillips, local classical gui-
tarist and music educator,
will take place immediately
afterward. Both events are
free with regular museum
admission.
"The tea ceremony is
going to be a beautiful,
peaceful experience," said
Executive Director Daniel E.
Stetson. "Dr. Phillips' lecture
will bring an American per-
spective on Japanese art,
culture, and education."
The tea ceremony will be
performed by Kim Pham,
co-owner of Kaleisia Tea
Lounge in Tampa. Pham


trained in Japan in the art of
the traditional tea ceremo-
ny, also known as Chanoyu,
and she has also studied tea
types and ceremonies in
several other countries.
"The performance is the
process of preparing tea but
it has a deeper meaning,"
said Pham. "The principles
of harmony, respect, purity
and tranquility are integral
to the lives of ones who fol-
low the art of Chanoyu."
Prior to the demonstra-
tion, Pham will offer a vari-
ety Japan's most famous teas
for the audience to sample.
She also will host a short
question and answer ses-
sion after the demonstra-
tion. Teas and teaware relat-
ed to the ceremony will be
available for purchase in the


Wildfire Danger High


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today asked
Floridians to be very careful
with all outdoor fires as they
celebrate the Fourth of July.
"Our Division of Forestry
is again responding to 20 to
40 new wildfires each day,"
Bronson said. "Many of
these are caused by people
who have been careless with
a campfire, bonfire or out-
door cooking fire."
During May, which is usu-
ally an active wildfire
month, 846 Florida wildfires
burned 139,328 acres. The
number and severity of
wildfires then dropped fol-
lowing the passage of
Tropical Depression Barry,
but an eagerly anticipated
summer rainy season failed
to materialize over most of
the state.
"We have not yet entered
into a summer pattern of
widely dispersed, regular
afternoon thundershowers,"
Bronson said. "The rainfall
we have received has been


beneficial, but most of the
state continues to experi-
ence drought conditions."
The statewide average for
the Keetch-Byram Drought
Index (KBDI) is 465, which
signifies a continued threat
of wildfires.
Thirty-six of Florida's 67
counties have a KBDI read-
ing above 500. Even with the
scattered rainfall, areas of
the state have not recovered
from previous rainfall
deficits and continue to
remain in drought-like con-
ditions.
Wildfires can occur
throughout the year in
Florida, but the most active
part of the wildfire season is
usually from January
through May. Florida aver-
ages about 5,000 wildfires
each year that burn approxi-
mately 200,000 acres.
Since Jan. 1 of this year,
state, federal and local fire
agencies have responded to
3,464 wildfires that have
burned 516,075 acres of
Florida.

A visit to a doctor can be a
stressful, anxiety-producing
experience. On top of being
worried about an illness or a
symptom, we often are facing
a busy, perhaps impersonal,
professional wearing an
intimidating white coat and
using medical jargon we may
not understand.
Fortunately, there are
some simple steps to take to
reduce the stress of a doctor's
visit, to improve doctor-
patient communications and
to be more in charge of our
health care.
One recommendation is to
use assertive communication
when talking with a health
professional. That doesn't
mean being loud or abrasive,
but simply speaking clearly
and directly, being aware of
your own needs and commu-
nicating those needs to your
health care provider.
What you want to estab-
lish with your doctor is a cli-
mate of mutual respect.
While you certainly respect
your physician's training,
experience and expertise, you
also have the right to expect
your doctor to respect your


ommunicatior
concerns and needs.
To help make that happen,
do some advance prepara-
tion. Prepare a short list of
questions related to your
health issues. Ask your doc-
tor if he or she wants to dis-
cuss those questions before or
after the exam.
If a doctor's visit makes
you too nervous to fully focus
on the answers and advice
being given, ask a friend or
relative to accompany you. A
small, portable tape recorder
is another way to insure
important information isn't
missed.
Assertive communication
also means asking for clarifi-
cation if medical language or
technical terms leave you
confused. Don't be afraid to
ask additional questions
until you're clear on what
you're being told. Summarize
what's been said so you're
sure you've understood cor-
rectly.
If there are treatment
choices, ask about the pros
and cons: of the alternatives,
and where additional infor-
mation can be obtained. If
hospitalization or follow-up


care is needed, explain your
family situation and what
support you have available.
Help your doctor understand
problems you may be facing.
Polite, but assertive com-
munication with your doctor
makes patient-doctor com-
munication more efficient
and effective. The goal is not
to be a hostile, demanding
patient, nor a passive one
who simply nods agreement
to everything, but rather
someone who wants to under-
stand and be an active partic-
ipant in getting or staying
healthy.
Recognize that the best
health care happens when
patients and doctors work as
partners and communicate
effectively with each other.

Consider the Rights We Take for Granted


As America pauses to celebrate
Independence Day this week, the
traditional focus is on what we con-
sider to be our basic rights: the right
to vote, freedom of speech, freedom
of religion, and such.
And properly so.
As Americans, we are so accus-
tomed to these advanced rights and
freedoms that we tend to overlook
the fact that millions, perhaps bil-
lions, of the world's population does
not even enjoy rights that are so
basic that we take them for granted.

The right of the people to be secure
in their persons, houses, papers, and
effects, against unreasonable search-
es and seizures shall not be violated,
and no Warrants shall issue, but
upon probable cause, supported by
Oath or affirmation, and particular-
ly describing the place to be searched
and the persons or things to be
seized. - Article IV, Bill of Rights,
United States Constitution


Unless you are a law enforcement
officer or a lawyer prosecuting or
defending criminal cases, the fact is
you probably' never think much
about that. Jack-booted cops can't
come storming into our homes to
drag out members of our families,
perhaps to be summarily executed
on the spot in the presence of their
children.
And for no greater violation than
embracing a viewpoint unpopular
with the people in power.
In other parts of the world, such
conduct is routine.
In the United States, we have a
Supreme Court that ponders over
the finest points of search and
seizure - not to protect the right to
hold unpopular views, but to insure
that people involved in clearly illegal
activities enjoy the rights guaran-
teed to them by the Constitution.


In all
accused


criminal prosecutions, the
shall enjoy the right to a


speedy and public trial, by an impar-
tial jury of the State and district
wherein the crime shall have been
committed; which district shall have
been previously ascertained by law,
and to be informed of the nature and,
cause of the accusation; to be con-
fronted with the witnesses against
him; to have compulsory process for
obtaining witnesses in his favor, and
to the assistance of counsel for his
defence. - Article VI, Bill of Rights,
United States Constitution

A public trial ... trial by jury ...
the right to confront accusers and
subpoena witnesses... the right to a
lawyer ... these rights are second
nature to all Americans. Can it be
that there are countries that deny
such basic protections? There are
hundreds of them.

Excessive bail shall not be
required, nor excessive fines imposed,
nor cruel and unusual punishments


inflicted. -Article VIII, Bill of Rights,
United States Constitution

Americans debate whether the
death penalty - reserved for only
the most heinous of murders - may
be imposed in any manner that does
not guarantee the complete comfort
of the criminal.
In other countries, women are
stoned to death for sexual impropri-
eties; pickpockets have their hands
cut off; mutilation that we choose
not to reflect on - let alone publish
- can be inflicted for minor offens-
es, or no offense at all.
This year, as we pause to celebrate
the independence of the United
States and of each and every one of
us as citizens, let us pause and rec-
ognize that the rights that we take
for granted go far, far beyond the
right to vote.
And let us give thanks.
Amen.


INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD


Change of Venue


As long ago as I can
remember - certainly since
third grade when I first
heard Elvis on those yellow-
labeled little Sun records - I
have wanted to sing and play
guitar.
Throughout my child-
hood, teenage and early
adult years, the urge was
strong, but my singing was
mostly confined to the
shower, for I was too shy to
sing in public.
Time did not diminish the
desire. If anything, the pass-
ing years seemed to intensi-
fy it. At 31, I decided it was
now or never. If I put it off
much longer, I might never
do it.
So I dragged out of my
bedroom closet an old True-
Tone guitar I'd bought as a
child for $7. I bought some
songbooks and found a gui-
tar teacher to show me some
chords. I practiced at least
one hour every evening, and
usually more.
For the first two weeks, I
firmly believed I had some
sort of neurological or mus-
cular disorder. I knew where
I wanted my fingers to go -
on which strings in which
frets - but the fingers stead-
fastly refused to go where
my mind directed.
Finally, after immense
frustration and a sincere
desire to smash the treach-
erous instrument to
smithereens, I squeaked out
a G chord, then a C, and
finally a D.
By now the mental frus-
tration had given way to
physical pain as the steel
strings began to bite into my
fingertips until they bled. I
gritted my teeth and kept at
it until I could stumble from
G to C to D without feeling
spastic.
However, I found that


making the right fingerings,
and pressing the strings
down hard enough onto the
frets to make a clear chord,
were different things.
Especially on that old True-
Tone, whose neck was as
crooked as sin.
I bought a better guitar,
and despite deep despair
and a solid belief that I was
wasting my time, I kept on.
Then, at long last, the day
came that after hours of G,
C, and D-ing, I made the dis-
covery that not only was
there no blood on my finger-
tips, they were not even
burning.
Close examination
revealed that the bites and
bruises on my fingertips had
turned into thick calluses. I
became so excited I banged
away for another hour, at the
end of which I could strum
G, C, and D chords, with
every note ringing clear and
true six times out of 10.
Now that I'd mastered G,
C, and D, I tried to sing with
my strumming, an endeavor
that started cats yowling and
dogs howling for blocks
around. My voice, as treach-
erous as my fingers, res-
olutely refused to go where
my mind knew it should.
Again I thought about
quitting. Instead, I sought
out a voice teacher and took
some singing lessons. To my
dismay, I discovered I did
not know how to breathe.
I continued to practice
and gradually, very gradual-
ly, I began to notice
improvement. It's strange
how things happen. I made
new friends who were far-
ther along on the guitar than
I, and every time I played
with them, I learned a little
more.
Within a year I had my
own little band, playing on


weekends in such eloquent
little clubs as The Pink
Pussycat, The Hog Pen, The
Dew Drop Inn, Bottom
Feeders' Frenzy, and The
Dead Skunk. We later
learned The Dead Skunk was
a hangout for a motorcycle
gang, The Outlaws.
The Outlaws swarmed the
bar every Friday and
Saturday night around mid-
night with their long hair
and beards, leather, chains,
tattoos and sunglasses.
Every time they came in, I
worried that they wouldn't
like us and they'd feed us to
the fishes. But they did like
us and even asked us one
night to come to their pad
when the bar closed and
play at a party.
We saidwe were leaving
right after work for Georgia
to play a two-week gig there.
That lie saved our bacon.
The next day The Bradenton
Herald announced that The
Outlaws' pad, fortified with
sandbags eight feet high all
the way around, had been
busted. One Outlaw had
been killed, three wounded,
and more than a dozen
jailed.
These days my music
making is confined to
church. Every Sunday morn-
ing, Mike Blair, Phil Haight
and I play Southern gospel
at the First United Methodist
Church of Zolfo Springs
from 10:30 to 11:00.
The church is so much
cleaner and safer than The
Dead Skunk. We've not had a
single heckler nor have we
had to dodge the first beer
bottle.

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

A Work in Progress


Today's issue of your
newspaper marks another
change in format.
The page is an inch-and-
a-half narrower, reflecting
an industry trend toward
narrower pages.
For metro and national
newspapers, it saves a
bunch of money in
newsprint consumption.
For community papers, the
savings are not that signifi-
cant, but the convenience
for our advertisers should
be. ;
The au Standard
Advertising Unit sizes that
we have used for many
years have been revised for
this format.
A couple of years ago, we
went from a 16-inch page
to a 14-inch page. I didn't
think anybody would
notice, or that those who
noticed, would care. I was
w... I was wro ... how
hard it is to say the words.
Okay, I was wrong.
Now I feel better.
Readers loved it.
"I don't have to hold the
paper like this," was the
typical reaction, arms
spread wide like a fisher-
man showing the size of the
one that got away.
We also have switched
our typeface for both body


type and headlines. For
many years, we have used
New Century Schoolbook
as our body type and
Bookman as our headline
face. We are now using
Utopia for both.
Utopia, we believe, is a
more readable typeface. It
is slightly taller, but slightly
narrower. The result is that
the letters are actually a lit-
tle bigger, but will fit in less
space because they are
slightly compressed. This
means that while the size of
the page is a little narrower,
the amount of news on the
page will be virtually
unchanged.
Along with the change in
page width and typeface,
we also have done some
redesign, notably on Page 1
and the editorial page.
We will use a boxed story
at the top of the front page,
hopefully with a "Hey
Mable" story. That is a con-
cept I picked up from the
South Florida daily news-
papers in our Sun Coast
Media Group. (And no, they
neither required nor sug-
gested that I do it; I just
think it makes for a more
readable newspaper.)
A "Hey Mable" story may
be either a straight news
story or a man-bites-dog


story. We hope it will be a
story so interesting ("Hey
Mable, you've got to read
this story!") that it is an irre-
sistible draw to readers.
We're using a similar for-
mat on the editorial page,
with the editorial boxed at
the top of the page. This
idea I lifted from the Venice
Gondolier, a three-times-a-
week Sun Coast paper.
We may use the same
look on a few other inside
pages.
In a memo to the staff
last week, I wrote:
"Newspaper design/re-
design is always a 'work in
progress;' that's what
makes it so much fun.
"We'll start doing it this
way, and tinker and tweak
as we go along.
"For the next few weeks,
I'll be taking a more active
role than I usually do in
front page design. You may
look on this as either help-
ing or meddling (depend-
ing on whether you like or
don't like my decisions) but
in either event, I plan to
pull back a little after we get
things where I'd like for
them to be."
It will be an interesting
journey.
Thanks for joining us on
it.


BARTOW - I have been
past "the having baby stage"
for 34 years and I don't see
any grandchildren being
born in Bartow; however, it
is a concern of mine that
Bartow will no longer be the
birthplace named on future
birth certificates.
The best part of the
Bartow hospital's reputation
has always been that it is the
best place in the county to
have a baby. This little hospi-
tal has always struggled, but
the heart of it has always
been about the beginning of
life.
I realize the bottom line is
all about the money, but
which unit goes next, and
when will the entire hospital
go; bottom line: money and


profits.
I can not believe the
board of directors is going
along with this decision
other than pressure from the
higher powers, the three
people who hold the power
to pull the strings. Burke
Whitman, CEO and presi-
dent of HMA; Ann Barnhart,
regional vice president of
HMA; and Justin Davis CEO
of BRMC.
Dr. Barnes and Dr. Favilli
both practice in Bartow.
Neither of them are practic-
ing obstetrics. Both of them
reside in Fort Meade. I feel
certain they each have
patients who live in the Fort
Meade area who are mothers
or who will be mothers in
the near future, who are


affected by this decision not
to deliver babies in Bartow.
This means they will have to
drive to Winter Haven,
Lakeland, even Brandon or
Tampa. A lot will depend on
where their insurance will
allow them to go.
I am not sure if the city
commissioners, state repre-
sentatives, state senators, or
Congressman Adam Putnam
have any influence on
reversing this -decision or
can help in any way. It is
worth a try to give them a
call, perhaps they can help
to influence the decision of
Health Management Asso-
ciates.

Tasty Fun on a Bun


Hot Dog! It's July Fourth


Hot dogs will be on many families' shop-
ping lists this Fourth of July.
July is National Hot Dog Month,
and The Mini Page celebrates with a
story about this all-American favorite.
Hot diggity-dog!
Americans eat millions of hot dogs
over the July 4 holiday.
What do you know about hot dogs?
Will they be on your family's holiday
grocery shopping list?
Hot dog history
Hot dog-like sausages were a popu-
lar food in Europe even before
Columbus sailed in 1492. Butchers*
from Frankfurt, Germany, called them
frankfurters. Immigrants brought
them to America in the 1800s.
There are many different stories
about hot dogs' history.
*Butchers cut and prepare meat for people
to buy.


The hot dog stand
In 1871, a German butcher opened
the first "dachshund sausages" stand
on Coney Island, N.Y., a popular
amusement park and vacation spot.
Hot dog buns
More than 100
years ago, visitors to
the World's Fair in ,
Chicago enjoyed
hot dogs.
Following
German tradi-
tion, the dogs were probably served in
a bun of some kind.
Another story tells of a salesman
who gave customers gloves to eat their
hot dogs with. But when his gloves
weren't returned, he thought of mak-
ing an edible roll for hot dogs.
Dogs at the game
A German immigrant who owned a St.
Louis, Mo., baseball team started the tradi-
tion of selling them at games in 1893. Hot
dogs are still popular with baseball fans.
Who said 'hot dog'?
The Germans called them "dachshund
sausages" because they looked like the dogs.
In 1901, so the story goes, a New York
newspaper cartoonist saw people eating
them and drew a cartoon about it. But he
couldn't spell "dachshund,"
so he called them "hot dogs."


What's in then i
Pork, beef, chick
turkey go into mos
hot dogs we eat. S<
etarian hot dogs ai
with vegetables or
beans.
Other ingredients are water and
spices such as garlic, salt, sugar,
ground mustard, nutmeg, coriander
and white pepper.
How are they made?
The meat is ground into small
pieces. Choppers blend the meat,
spices and other ingredients into a
mixture. Then the mixture goes into a
machine that stuffs it into casings, or
thin molds. For most hot dogs, the cas-
ing is later removed.


These hot
dogs are
coming out
of the
smokehouse.
They will be
packaged
next.


Long strands of hot dogs go to a room
called a smokehouse, where they're
cooked with wood smoke. Next they get
a shower of cool water, and the casings
are removed. Finally, they are sealed
into packages tdokeep them fi-esh.

NOTICE OF PERMIT ISSUANCE
Enclosed Is Permit Number FLA575224 to con-
struct and operate a closed loop total recycle
system, the process equipment involved is a
1980 gallon pressurized blending tank. Certain
products processed in this tank require heating
and cooling through a heat exchanger that is
installed as a jacket around the tank. Cooling
will be accomplished by the new closed loop
recycle system. Propylene Glycol and water will
be pumped from the 20,000 gallon reservoir


through the heat exchanger and returned to the
reservoir. The Propylene Glycol and water In the
20,000 gallon reservoir is cooled by the sec-
ondary cooling loop that passes the solution
through the 20 ton air cooled liquid chiller.
Certain products require further cooling by using
a single pass plate heat exchanger. The cooling
medium is the same as the blend tank. Likewise,
the cooling medium is pumped from and
returned to the reservoir. The permit Is issued
under Section(s) 403, Florida Statutes and Rule
62-620, F.A.C.
The Department's proposed agency shall
become final unless a timely petition for an
administrative hearing is filed pursuant to
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., within four-
teen days of receipt of notice. The procedures
for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
F.S. The petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed (received) in
the Office of General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the per-
sons listed below must be filed within fourteen
days of this written notice. Petitions filed by any
persons other than those entitle to written notice
under Section 210.60(3), F.S., must be filed
n within fourteen days of publication of this public
g notice or within fourteen days of receipt of this
s, notice of intent, whichever occurs first. Under
Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person
who asked the Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within fourteen days of
receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition
to the applicant at the address indicated above
at the time of filing. The failure of any person to
file a petition within the appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative determination (hear-
ing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statute. Any subsequent intervention will be only
at the approval of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
t 106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on
d which the Department's action is base must con-
s tain the following information:
, (a) The name, address and telephone num-
e ber of each petitioner; the name, address and
, telephone number of the petitioner's representa-
f tive, if any; the Department permit identification
r number and the county in which the subject mat-
r ter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when petitioner
received notice of the agency action or pro-
posed action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's sub-'
stantial interests are affected by the Department
action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the petition must
so indicate;
I (e) A statement of facts that the petitioner con-
I tends warrant reversal or modification of the
Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts
alleged, including the specific facts the petition-
er contends warrant reversal or modification of
the agency's action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by peti-
tioner, stating precisely the action petitioner
wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action, the
filing of a petition means that the Department's
final action may be different from the position
taken by it In this permit. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any such
final decision of the Department on the applica-
tion have the right to petition to become a party
to the proceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.
Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, is not available in this proceeding.
The permit action is final and effective on the
date filed with the clerk of the Department
unless a petition is filed in accordance with the
. above. Upon the timely filing of a petition this
permit will not be effective until further order of
the Department.
Any, party to the permit has the right to seek
judicial review of the permit action under Section
120.68, Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice
of appeal under Rules 9.110 and 9.190, Florida
Rules of Appellate Procedure, with the clerk of
the Department in the Office of General
Counsel, Main Station 35, 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000;
and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal
accompanied by the applicable filing fees with
the appropriate district court of appeal. The
notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days
from the date when this permit action is filed with
the clerk of the Department.

Are you

the picture

of health?


and it won't alienate them.
In reality, how we handle
fanhily manners now will
make a big difference in the
quality of our family relation-
ships for years to come.
Does that mean you can
never get upset and angry
with your children? Of course
not. Such expectations are
simply unreasonable. But
what matters is how we han-
dle disagreements and con-
flict, for that's how our chil-
dren learn respect.
There are a number of
ways to communicate with
your children to help foster a
more respectful environment:
* Eliminate shouting,
name-calling and sarcasm.
These all destroy respect and
just encourage resentment
and more conflict.


* Communicate honestly
and calmly with your children
when their behavior has left
you feeling hurt, scared or
angered. You'll be surprised
how well they listen to real,
meaningful communication
as opposed to an angry tirade.
* Give your children choic-
es in how responsibilities are
handled. Rather than just
commanding "Get in that
shower now!" try asking
"What time would you prefer
to take your shower - 8 or
8:30?"
* Expect and require
respectful behavior from all
,members of your household,
not just your children. Simple
rules such as, "Don't interrupt
when others are speaking," or
"We always say please and
thank you," make acting


respectfully a natural way of
family life when both adults
and children follow those
rules.
We all want our children to
be polite, well-mannered, and
respectful. The best way to
make that happen is to be
good examples of such behav-
iors ourselves, especially in
the relationship we have with
our children.

Most of us would never
think of shouting or cursing
at our friends, neighbors or
co-workers. We, and they,
would consider it extremely
impolite if we kept ordering
them around, calling them
names or asking sarcastic
questions like, "What is the
matter with you!?"
And yet far too many of us
repeatedly communicate with
our own children exactly like
that, and then we wonder
why our children don't show
more respect to us and oth-
ers..
If we yelled at and insulted
our friends the way we often
do our children, it wouldn't
take long for them to drop us
as friends. Yet many of us feel
we can lose our tempers and
manners with our children

Will Accept Duty
Nobo and Encinas both,
have said they are willing to

They also have said they
