Precisionaire Fire Ruled Arson


By S.L. FRISBIE, IV
and
PEGGY KEHOE

State fire marshals have ruled
last week's destructive fire at
Flanders Precisionaire as arson.
Detective Kevin Shireman said
several state fire marshal detec-
tives are still working on the
investigation, headed by
Detective James Pirson of Lake
Wales.
The cause of the intense blaze
last Tuesday night was not
released. Shireman did say that
the sprinkler system did activate,
but wasn't able to put out the fire.
Two earlier fires at the air condi-
tioning filter manufacturer -
one April 18 and one July 2 -
were extinguished by the sprin-
klers.
While the April fire was deter-
mined to be accidental, the earli-
er July fire also was classified as
arson. Now detectives are taking
all three fires into account.
Florida Advisory Committee
for Arson Prevention (FACAP) is
offering a reward of up to $2,500
for information. Signs have been
posted at the site.
Shireman said at 240,000
square feet, the burned building
was much bigger than the fire
that destroyed two buildings in
Downtown Bartow in 2005.
Damage was estimated at $5 mil-
lion for the building and $15 mil-


lion in product loss.
Smoke still rises from the
wreckage of the building, and
there will be hot spots for some
time, Shireman said.
Bartow Fire Department con-
tinues to do periodic checks of
the site this week.

As investigators probe the
cause of the fire, one Polk County
agency is helping displaced
employees find new jobs, and
another is helping Precisionaire
get back into business.
PolkWorks held a job fair
Saturday morning to begin the
process of matching more than
350 out-of-work employees with
other jobs.
On Friday and Saturday, 130
.employees signed up with
PolkWorks, and 80 vouchers for
gas were distributed. Also helping
employees were United Way and
the state Division of Children and
Families.
And the Central Florida
Development Council is working
with the company to find a new
site, either temporary or perma-
nent, to get the plant back into
operation.
The disastrous fire broke out at
about 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July
10, approximately in the middle
of the building.
The building on West Main
Street is just east of Crown
Avenue. The latter takes its name


from Crown Can, the company
that built the plant and operated
it for many years.
Despite the efforts of the
Bartow, Polk County, Lake Wales,
and Mulberry fire departments,
including two aerial trucks that
attacked the fire from above,
flames moved steadily west


toward Crown Avenue, then east
toward the Palm and Evergreen
cemeteries.
Thirty-nine firefighters battled
the fire, one of the most destruc-
tive in Bartow's history, into the
early morning hours.
A fire on the night of April 18
caused a loss of about $150,000


worth of product, mainly from
water damage. Bartow Fire Chief
Jay Robinson credited the fire
sprinkler system in the building
with keeping the fire under con-
trol until firefighters could extin-
guish the blaze.

Council To Interview


Executive Search Firms


The process of searching
for a new city manager for
Bartow will begin this after-
noon as city commissioners
hear presentations from two
executive recruiters.
The commission will
hold a work session at 4
p.m. to consider presenta-
tions from Colin Baenziger
and Associates of
Wellington and The Mercer
Group of Winter Haven.
Both firms want to recruit
candidates for the city man-
ager's vacancy that was cre-
ated when the city commis-
sion fired Joseph J. DeLegge,
Bartow's city manager for 14
years, in June in the wake of
an employee morale survey
that was sharply critical of
DeLegge's management.
The Baenziger proposal
is for a fee of $19,750, and


Mercer's fee is $20,000.
Both firms guarantee to
find a candidate acceptable
to the city commission.
Also at the work session,
the commission will consid-
er what action to take on
state-mandated water sup-
ply planning. The city of
Lakeland had taken the
position that the mandate
does not apply to it because
it has a plentiful water sup-
ply.
Charles W. Drake, vice
president of Tetra Tech, Inc.,
will explain Lakeland's posi-
tion to the Bartow city com-
mission.
The commission will
reconvene for its regular
meeting at 6:30.
At the start of the meet-
ing, the commission will
recognize three city employ-


ees on completing five years
with the city, and one -
David Brooks of the police
department - on complet-
ing 30 years.
Recognition of service
milestones was recom-
mended by a number of
employees who responded
to the morale survey.
Also on the agenda:
* A public hearing on
approval of an "optional
sector plan" for develop-
ment of the Clear Springs
Land Co. property.
* Recognition of
Commissioner Adrian
Jackson for completing an
18-hour course of instruc-
tion at the Institute for
Elected Municipal Officials.
* Presentation of a water
fluoridation quality award
to the city.


City To Look Again At Noisy Block Parties


Unruly block parties will
get another look from
Bartow city commissioners.
Commissioner Adrian
Jackson noted that the com-
mission discussed several
weeks ago complaints
about noisy block parties,
but that nothing more had
happened.
Police Chief Erik Sandvik
said he had given the com-
mission a list of proposed
rules regulating the parties,
but had gotten no response.
He said he would resubmit


the rules for the commis-
sion's review.
"Closing the street is
what triggers a block party,"
he said.
Complaints about block
parties have included loud
music, excessive drinking,
fights, and in one instance,
an unconfirmed report of
gunfire, Sandvik told the
commission.
Clements said that loud
music prompts most of the
complaints.
Interim City Atty. John


Murphy urged the commis-
sion to see what ordinances
already are on the books
before adopting new rules
on block parties.
Gerald Cochran urged
the commission to prohibit
block parties, and to
encourage the use of city
recreational facilities for
large gatherings.
"They can get out of
hand, and they will," he
said.


Polk County Burn Ban Lifted


With the worst of Florida's annual
drought behind us, the Polk County
Commission voted unanimously on
Tuesday to repeal its "burn ban" on out-
door fires.
Jerry Zipper with the Florida Division of
Forestry urged the repeal, saying that while
the dry season is not completely gone,


"we're going in the wrong direction."
Polk County Fire Chief David Cash said
the county controls residential trash fires,
while the Division of Forestry regulates
other burning.
The action, coming at a public hearing,
drew no reaction from the public.


County Hires Consultant


For New Budget Process


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Associate Publisher

Polk County commission-
ers will hire Public Strategies
Group to lead the county
through a "budgeting for
outcomes" concept that will
involve taxpayers as well as
county commissioners and
county employees in the
budgeting process.
The cost will be $285,000,
spent at a time when the
county is facing a state-
mandated cut in taxes.
Commissioners decided it's
worth it.
County Mgr. Mike Herr
urged the commission to
approve the contract with
the consultant to guide the
county through the new
budget process.
He emphasized that he
wasn't hiring a consultant to
prepare or balance the bud-
get for him.'
"It's a new way of
approaching our budget, a
brand new process," he said.
The consultant's job is to
help the county's top execu-
tives learn the process,
which involves taxpayers
and lower level county
employees in developing
priorities and monitoring
the budget.
Public Strategies Group
guarantees the county will


be satisfied, or it will give the
county its money back, Herr
said.
"I've never seen that in a
contract," he added.
"Guidance teams" from
outside of government will
oversee the process, and
"outcome teams" will evalu-
ate results, Herr said.
Five focus groups, whose
members will be selected at
random, will identify six or
seven areas for government
focus, and an outcome team
will appointed for each area
of focus.
While the focus groups
will be selected on a statisti-
cally random basis, the guid-
ance teams and outcome
teams will be appointed by
the commission. The con-
sultant recommended that
the two types ,of teams be
made up of leaders in the
county, but not be represen-
tatives of special interest
groups.
"It takes program budget-
ing to the next level," Herr
said.
"I'm not a dictator; I'm a
leader. We lead best by con-
sensus."
Herr acknowledged that
"my timing is horrific" in
recommending a $285,000
consultant contract at a time
when the county is facing
state-mandated revenue


cuts. The money,was put in
the county budget for this
purpose last year, he said.
The alternative, Herr said,
is for him to make cuts in
requested funds to bring the
budget into balance, which
he called the "top down
process."
Either way, he said, he will
present a balanced budget
to the commission.
"I don't want to put some-
thing in place that's going to
divide the commission,"
Herr said.
Commissioner Jack Myers
said the commission will
continue to hold work ses-
sions to study the budget
before it is adopted.
Commissioner Sam
Johnson said he could not
support the consultant con-
tract because "the timing is
bad." He said the county
manager should solicit a list
of priorities from each com-
missioner.
Myers moved approval of
the contract and
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson seconded.
The county manager "is
going out on a limb, and I
commend him for it," Myers
said.
On a roll call vote,
Johnson cast the only dis-
senting vote.

Department inspectors rou-
tinely check about 6,200

Once intensive trapping

Because methyl eugenol

USF Shows Class in Sun Dome Name Decision


If the United States were being
created today, it would not be made
up of names like Florida, Georgia,
North and South Carolina, Virginia
and West Virginia.
The states would bear the names
of brokerage houses, food proces-
sors, and tissue manufacturers.
We might even have North and
South Kleenex, Alpo and West Alpo.
Fortunately, the state names are
pretty well established, but the field
is wide open for naming sports
venues and even the games that are
played in them.
There's the Trop where the Devil
Rays play a game that vaguely
resembles baseball, and Rayjay,
where the Bucs sometimes actually


win a football game.
The University of South Florida is
looking for a corporate sponsor for
whom to name its Sun Dome. But it
turned down an opportunity to sell
the name to a Tampa-based student
lending company. That firm is
involved in what The Tampa Tribune
called an "ongoing controversy
involving the student lending indus-
try," a controversy which, frankly,
had escaped our notice.
Whatever the nature of the con-
troversy, we commend USF for
drawing the line when it deemed
that having the lending company's
name emblazoned on its venue
would be inappropriate. The univer-
sity left $3.45 million on the table, $2


million-plus after it paid the finder's
fee to the firm that selected the
sponsor.
It was a class move.
We have never been a fan of the
college bowl games selling naming
rights for the football bowl games.
Such traditional names as the Gator
Bowl, Orange Bowl, Cotton Bowl,
and Sugar Bowl now are preceded by
sponsors' names. It does nothing to
advance the notion that college
football is still an amateur sport.
We are equally critical of the press
for falling into the trap and using the
sponsors' name in their coverage of
the event. Sure, the networks may be
obligated to display the names as a


condition of broadcasting the
games, but newspapers have no
obligation to give the corporate pig-
gybackers a free ride.
That is why we prefer to call the
two Tampa Bay sports venues by
their nicknames, The Trop and
RayJay.
We'd just as soon see USF contin-
ue to call its venue the Sun Dome,
but that would be bucking an appar-
ently irreversible trend.
If that is not to happen, at least the
university showed class in establish-
ing something in addition to price


alone as a prerequisite
cializing its venue.

.THINKING OUT LOUD

aMiss America Pageant Finds a Friend


Say what you want to
about Miss New Jersey - or
say nothing at all if you pre-
fer; it's a free country - but
she may have single-hand-
edly saved the Miss
America Pageant for anoth-
er year.
Miss New Jersey, as you
know - if you've been able
to tear yourself away from
the really important stories,
like Paris Hilton's memoirs
on her three weeks in jail
and the public confessions
in the past few days of mar-
ital infidelity by various
elected officials - claims
she was the target of a
blackmail attempt.
Why, nothing this big has
happened since The
Donald's big heart melted
and he let that leggy blond
have another shot at being
Miss USA despite some
transgression that has since
faded from memory.
It was tears, runny mas-
cara, and bad comb-over
for as far as the eye could
see.
Following in that blond-
emblazoned trail, Amy
Polumbo went on the NBC
Today show to reveal that
she-was being blackmailed
in an attempt to force her to
withdraw from the Miss
America contest, which
apparently is going to be
held somewhere, some-
time, possibly even broad-
cast by somebody.
Her anonymous extor-
tionist, identifying himself,
herself, or themselves as
The Committee -To Save


Miss America, threatened
to release embarrassing
photographs of her if Miss
N.J. didn't withdraw from
the contest.
Source of the photos?
Amy's own MySpace
website. She posted them
herself. For anybody who
knew the secret MySpace
handshake to look at.
They don't call it the Miss
America Scholarship
Pageant any more, do they?
A nervous Amy, in her
first appearance on Today,
said the photos really
weren't that embarrassing
- no nudity, for example -
but she didn't want any-
body to see them. Except
the entire MySpace world,
of course.
A few days later, she was
back on the show, with her
attorney, still more ner-
vously ready to reveal the
photos to the rest of us, you
might say making a
clean ... no, let's not even
go there.
The photos (yes, of
course I watched; you pay
good money for this news-
paper and your expecta-
tions of me, low though
they are, include looking at
stuff like this) would best be
described as sophomoric.
Which makes sense, since
she was probably about a
sophomore when they were
taken.
In a couple, she is kissing
a boyfriend (gasp!), in
another, taking a drink (she
says she was 21 when that
one was taken), and in yet


another, holding two
oranges in front of herself, a
bit enviously, if you get my
drift.
There were a couple of
others that might be
described as even a bit
earthier, as Mother used to
call such things, but hardly
worth losing your tiara over.
The Miss New Jersey official
(or maybe officials; I don't
know if the pageant can
afford more than one)
issued a Trumponean par-
don. Amy can keep her
sash.
By next week, the name
Amy Polumbo will have dis-
appeared from the public
consciousness. She has had
her 15 minutes of fame, and
frankly, I think we.still owe
her about five minutes.
However unwittingly,
The Committee To Save
Miss America, with the
publicity-posturing assis-
tance of Miss New Jersey,
has achieved its goal.
The Miss America
Pageant - if it can find a
venue that wants it and
some obscure cable net-
work that will broadcast it
- is good for another year,
raised from the obscurity
that lifted it only slightly
higher than the
Westminister Dog Show.
And just who might
advertise on the show?
Let's think about a prod-
uct tie-in here, okay?
I've got it.
The Florida Citrus
Commission.


With images of 9/11 vivid
in my mind, I courageously
followed Kyle on into the air-
port. People swarmed
around us and security was
heavy. Ahead I saw people
tiptoe nervously through the
metal detector.
We'd already checked in
our suitcases and I won-
dered again if I had anything
in my little carry-on bag I
shouldn't have. I couldn't
think of a thing.
Suddenly Kyle ducked
under a roped-off area to put
a little less distance between
him and the end of the line
at the metal detector.
"Hey!"
A very officious lady in a
uniform with a shiny badge
eyed us suspiciously.
Kyle reddened. "I was just
... I mean, I, uh-"
"Just come on," she said.
"Follow through here like
you're supposed to."
"Yes, ma'am."
"What're you doing?" I
hissed. "Watch your step in
here. These people don't
play."
I'd heard that since the
latest terror incidents in
London, airport security and
precaution had escalated.
On the road coming in to the


airport, police officers had
stopped and inspected every
third or forth car. We'd
slipped through that, and I
didn't want trouble now.
The woman who'd yelled
at us asked to see our tickets
and IDs. As Kyle opened his
wallet, his mouth fell open.
He moaned.
"Oh, no."
"What? What?" I asked.
"I left my picture ID in my
other wallet."
"What! What's wrong with
you? Where is it?"
"In my suitcase."
The lady looked at him.
"How old are you, son?"
"Fifteen."
She looked at us, exam-
ined our tickets, and then
looked at us again. I guess
we didn't look too threaten-
ing.
"Go ahead," she said.
"Have a nice flight."
We thanked her and crept
onward.
Several more uniforms
and badges hovered around
the checkpoint and the
metal detector. People were
taking off shoes and belts,
emptying their pockets.
. When I reached into my
pocket, I froze. My pock-
etknife! I'd forgotten to put it


in my suitcase.
Visions of armed security
personnel descending upon
me sent a dart of irrational
fear through me and I
looked around for an avenue
of escape. All I could see was
a tall garbage can, a few feet
away, its yawning mouth
wide open.
I slipped my knife out of
my pocket, coughed into my
hand, and dropped it into'
the trash.
Kyle saw me. He grinned.
"Dad, that pocketknife
looked like it was stuck to
your fingers. You didn't want
to let it go, did you?"
"I've had that knife for
years," I said.
We made it safely through
the metal detectors. It was a
long flight, though, as I
mourned not only the loss of
my pocketknife, but also the
loss of innocence and sense
of security that went up in
smoke on 9/11.

Closure Fails Every Test of Fairness


I was present at the forum
on July 10 regarding the clo-
sure of the obstetrics
department of Bartow
Regional Medical Center
and I must state that I am
against closure.
I am proud of the fact the
Bartow Rotary Club was
instrumental in the estab-
lishment of Bartow
Memorial Hospital for the
good of our community.
I am a native of Bartow,
born at Bartow Memorial on
Oct. 18, 1951, and thus ben-
efited from the obstetric ser-
vices offered then. I am a
Rotarian and a member of
the Bartow Breakfast Rotary
Club.
Rotary International has
an instrument used to evalu-
ate any course of action. It is


called the "Four-Way Test" of
the things we think, say or
do. The Four-Way Test asks
four questions to be applied
to the proposed action.
These are:
1. Is it the Truth?
2. Is it fair to all con-
cerned?
3. Will it build goodwill
and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to
all concerned?
If the answer to any of
these questions is "no," then
the proposed action fails the
Four-Way Test. You are then
left without a "Win-Win" sit-
uation.
At the forum, many facts
were presented. Not one
representative of Health
Management Associates or
Bartow Regional Medical


Center was present,
although they were invited.
Based on facts presented
and the apparent intentional
absence of BRMC and HMA,
it appears that closing the
obstetrics department
grossly fails the Four-Way
Test and this fails our com-
munity, the intentions of our
hospital's founding fathers,
and our community's overall
trust in our present hospital.
Can the position taken by
the Polk County Medical
Assn. and the Florida
Medical Assn. be wrong in
condemning the closure?
I think not.
Keep the OB unit open.

Basic Community Medical Care

Begins With Obstetrics


As a lifetime resident of the Fort Meade
area, Bartow Hospital has been a part of my
life since birth.
My husband, myself, my children and my
grandson have all been born at Bartow
Memorial/Regional.
The miles between hospitals for southern
Polk and northern Hardee counties resi-
dents makes travel' to a hospital for child-
birth a very important priority.


A community hospital should focus on
providing basic care for the surrounding
communities. That begins with obstetrics
and childbirth. A hospital has to balance
services to balance out their budget.
Bartow Regional Medical Center admin-
istration has failed the community. Why
have you abandoned childbirth care?

I remember feeling sorry

Time To Take Action


I am extremely proud to
say that all three of my chil-
dren and my husband were
born in Bartow.
I cannot imagine the day
when that will no longer be a
choice for expectant moth-
ers, but sadly that day is fast
approaching.
Every citizen of Bartow
should be asking themselves
what they can do to prevent


this from happening.
Is this the town where you
live, play, work or worship?
Then this should be person-
al to you.
Do something. Call or
visit anyone and everyone
you think can help.
We can make a difference
if we all work together.

Wants Child
To Be Born
In Bartow
I moved to Lakeland two
years ago when I got married
to a Bartow resident. My
husband and his two broth-
ers were born at Bartow
Memorial. It was his desire
to have our child born in
Bartow like he was.
I chose Dr. Nobo because
he could deliver our child at
the Bartow hospital. Now I
have an established relation-
ship with him and his staff.
If the hospital doesn't stay
open I will have to get a new
doctor.
I don't know why they
have spent money to remod-
el and now out of the blue
have decided to close.

Births Will
Increase

Bartow Memorial
Hospital has a long history
of delivering babies, assess-
ing them, treating them,
whatever the need.
. If the need was to transfer
them, they were promptly
placed on an ambulance
with a BMH nurse.
Think of the difficulty of
transferring an ill newborn
all the way to LRMC from
Bartow.
Take into consideration
that the population s going
to increase, which of course
would include the number
of newborns.
CAROL A. OSGOOD


Not Right For Women


I am against the closure
because it's not right for
women to drive to a different


town just to deliver.
ERIC REESE


I am in my third
trimester. As any mother
would know, finding
another physician would
be highly unlikely at this
point in my pregnancy.
It disturbs me to know
that despite having knowl-
edge of this, the hospital's
doors will not remain open
until the delivery of my
child.
I have since the begin-
ning traveled from Lake
Wales to Bartow for every
visit, simply because the
nurses and staff are won-
derful, not to mention Dr.
Nobo having an excellent


bedside manner.
I could have chosen
many other physicians.
However, I chose Bartow
Memorial. It saddens and
puts a great ideal of stress
on me. If I am feeling this
way, I assure you that
other moms-to-be are in
the same boat.
Stress, as anyone knows,
while being with child, is
terrible, not only for me,
but for my baby as well.
I ask the hospital to real-
ly consider your decision
on closing these doors.
Having a baby is a blessing
here at Bartow Memorial.


Understand that this
decision affects many peo-
ple. Put yourself in our
shoes.
If you do decide to close
the doors, I hope you all
pray for the mothers-to-be
and their unborn babies.
Lives are being changed
with such a quick decision.
Let's not trouble ourselves
with financial burdens,
but trouble ourselves with
the lives that we are affect-
ing,
There must be another
alternative.
Please pray for us.

A recent national study
claims that Floridians don't
volunteer as much as the
rest of the nation.
Meanwhile, people with
the American Red Cross Polk
County Chapter and the Red
Cross office in Highlands
County have been keeping
the volunteer spirit alive in
everything they do, even
when there isn't a major hur-
ricane on the horizon.
The American Red Cross
always needs volunteers to
fulfill its mission.
That's why, in just a little
more than two weeks, Polk
and Highlands County resi-
dents who want to volunteer
for their community can join
the Red Cross at its annual
Hurricane Kickoff Barbecue
and Volunteer Recruitment
from 2-7 p.m. Saturday, July
28, at the Stuart Center, just
south of Bartow on U.S. 17.
The event will be in the
air-conditioned center. Each
current volunteer is encour-
aged to bring in a new vol-
unteer to this year's barbe-
cue.


From the Fort Meade

Historical Museum


By LETA WRIGHT
Community Correspondent

We received some grant
money the first of the year to
be spent for storm windows
for the museum.
We were closed for two
years because of hurricane
damage to the museum,
when the windows were
blown out.
That storm ruined a num-
ber of artifacts of historical
value, never to be replaced.
It was tragic.
The museum applied for
and received grant money to
replace the windows.
Walter and his crew from
Walter Graves Construction
Co. worked diligently to get
these windows in place
before any hurricanes. They
worked about eight days
installing the storm win-
dows in the museum. It was
quite an operation.
They look so good, sturdy,
and lasting - like they will
weather the storm. Walter is
really pleased with the win-
dows and feels they will safe
from hurricane damage. If
we have another hurricane
to come through Fort
Meade, we all are going to
feel better about the safe
keeping and protection for
our museum.
The next step will be to
replace the attic windows
and then to paint around the
windows inside and out.
We have 34 windows or 68
sashes of historical unblem-
ished pieces in storage for
sale. If you are interested,
call the museum number,
285-7474 and leave a mes-
sage or call my home num-
ber, 285-9182.
The museum is nearly fin-
ished being renovated and is
really pretty. Drive by and
take a look at what Walter

and his crew did.
We want to thank the
Men's Coffee Club members
for hauling the sashes off the
porch and into a safe keep
storage. Those participating
were: Floyd DeVane, Don
Marchman, and Dennis
Green.
There is no better feeling
than to have a group of men
to come to the rescue when
the ox is in the ditch. Our
Coffee Club men are price-
less.
Do you remember prices
like this? I was researching
some news and found an ad
in the Fort Meade Leader,
December, 1962, from
Mann's Grocery that reads
like this: "turkey, 29 cents a
pound; bacon, 1 lb. pkg., 49
cents; coffee, 1 lb., 49 cents;
and a Swift Premium 15 1/2
oz. can of beef hash, 38
cents."


Wish we had some prices
like that today.
I had a number of
responses about the Miss


Flame contest, but they
mostly were the wrong year
or another beauty contest.
Thanks for responding.

Manager Search To Begin;

Culpepper's Work Praised Ametek Talks Are Stalled


Bartow city commission-
ers will begin the process of
searching for a new city
manager on July 16; in the
meantime, they have made
it clear that Interim City Mgr.
Linda Culpepper isn't merely
"a gatekeeper."
The gatekeeper terminol-
ogy was used when the com-
mission appointed Mrs.
Culpepper, who is Bartow's
city clerk, to be the interim
manager.
Commissioner James E
Clements, who made the
motion to appoint Mrs.
Culpepper to the interim
post, told his colleagues
Monday night that he wants
her to serve in the job until a
new manager is hired.
Mayor Brian Hinton
agreed, saying, "I have been
extremely pleased with her."
"I'll be happy to do that,"
she told the commission.
Commissioner Adrian
Jackson said he didn't want
her to be considered nothing
more than a gatekeeper.
In approving the minutes
of the meeting at which Mrs.
Culpepper was appointed,
commissioners removed the
word "gatekeeper."
Commissioners decided
to seek requests for propos-

U.S. Hwy. 27 in Lake Wales,

Mrs. Culpepper suggested
that the commission either
could use a professional firm
or call on the services of the
Range Riders, a group of
retired city managers who
screen applicants when
called on by city commis-
sions.
"You haven't had this dis-
cussion for 14 'years,"
Interim City Atty. John
Murphy told the commis-
sion. Joseph J. DeLegge held
the post for that period
before being fired by the
commission in June in the
wake of a consultant's
scathing report on city
employee morale.
He said the commission
needs to establish a job
description and the qualifi-
cations for candidates.
Knowledge of electric
department operations is
important to Bartow, he
said.

want to consider the recruit-
ment firm that screened

sy results show suicide, he
said.

Per newspaper policy, The
Polk County Democrat is not
releasing the woman's name,
due to the nature of her
death.

the firm didn't do a back-
ground check on candidates.
I le said that the commis-
sion needs to decide on1
qualifications and a salary
range before it begins the
search.
"The profile and the pay
range will drive the whole
thing," he said.
Jackson said he is
impressed by the firm of
Colin Baenziger and
Associates, which recom-
mends bringing in the final-
ists for a weekend at which
they can meet members of
the community.
He predicted that the city
will have to pay about
$20,000 to a recruitment
firm.
Commissioner Leo
Longworth also supported
using a professional search
firm.
"Everything you read says
don't rush the process," he
said.
Hinton suggested that the
commission interview firms
that want to do an executive
search at its Aug. 6 meeting,
but at Jackson's urging, the
commission moved that
process forward to its July 16
meeting at 4 p.m.


A 6-year-old was struck
and robbed by a 20-year-old
man Friday, July 13, in
Lakeland, Polk County
Sheriff's deputies reported.
Around 4:15 pm. the boy
was walking to a Citgo con-
venience store off Reynolds
Road with $10 his grand-
mother gave him to buy sev-
eral items.
Carrying the money in his
hand, the little boy was
stopped near the store
entrance by Julio Antwan
Ortiz of Tampa, who told the
boy to give him the money
or he would punch hinm;
PCSO spokesman Donna C.
Wood said. The victim
refused to give Ortiz the
money so he struck the boy
on the arm, the report said.
At this time a second sus-
pect, Jarrod S. Gaines, 17, of
Lakeland, ran out of the
store and grabbed the $10
bill out of the victim's hand.
The boy returned home and
told his grandmother.
Some 30 minutes later the
victim's mother came home
and was told what happened
to her son. She had seen
detectives talking to the sus-
pects on her way home. She
took her son back there to
tell detectives, and the boy
pointed out the two suspects
as being the men who
robbed him.


On Environmental Issue


Bartow city commission-
ers are still interested in pur-
chasing the former Ametek
manufacturing plant on
West Polk Street to house
several city departments,
but negotiations with the
company have ground to a
halt for now.
The city backed away
from the deal after a Phase 1
environmental survey
showed that the soil may
have .been polluted by a fur-
niture manufacturer- that
once occupied the site.
And the city once operat-
ed a lIndfill on the property.
Ametek will not reim-
burse the city for a Phase 2
environmental assessment
that would ascertain for cer-
tain the presence of polluted
soil, Interim City Atty. John
Murphy told the commis-
sion.
Instead, the company will
have its own assessment
done, he said. The estimated
cost is $47,000.
Murphy said he could not
recommend that the city
spend $2.6 million to buy
the property without thor-
ough environmental testing.


Mayor Brian Hinton said
the big issue is that Ametek
will not allow the city to do
any digging or drilling on the
property for environmental
testing. An environmental
assessment done by Ametek
would not protect the city or
its lenders, he said.
"It would be a shame if we
lost that property,"
Commissioner Pat Huff said.
In other business, the
commission:
* Referred to Interim City
Mgr. Linda Culpepper a
request from Julie Cochran
that the city fence the soccer
field at Mary Holland Park to
protect players from alliga-
tors in the three lakes within
the park. The city has asked
state game officers to
remove any gators they can
find.
* Approved renewal of the
county fire protection con-
tract under which the
Bartow Fire Dept. will pro-
vide protection in unincor-
porated areas near Bartow in


the coming year for $84,399.
. * Readopted the city's
stormwater tax ordinance,
and heard Gerald Cochran
complain that he is being
overcharged for his home
because it is on the tax roll in
four parcels. Mrs. Culpepper
said she would look into
Cochran's complaint.
* Established the
stormwater tax at $45 per
single-family home, the
same rate as in past years.
The enabling ordinance calls
for an annual increase in the
tax, but Mrs. Culpepper said
the city, was able to balance
the new budget without an
increase.
* Agreed with
Commissioner Adrian
Jackson's suggestion that the
commissioners cook lunch
for city employees on the
Friday before Labor Day.
Jackson also commended
the city's work force for its
work on Bartow's celebra-
tion of the 125th anniversary
of its incorporation.

Changing Times on the Range


The Life of a Cowboy


Have you ever dreamed of being a cowboy
or a cowgirl? It sounds like a romantic life:
being out on the range, independent, sleep-
ing outdoors with the stars as your blanket.
Sometimes it's easy to forget that this
romantic life comes with a lot of work. But in
spite of the long hours, most cowboys think
this is a wonderful life.
The Mini. Page looks at what the cowboy's
life is like today.
Who is a cowboy?
Today being a cowboy can mean everything
from being a rodeo entertainer, to riding a horse
in competition, to working on a ranch with
cattle.
Most full-time cowboys think of cowboying
both as a job and as a life they love. Most
have skills with horses, roping and cattle.
Experts say if kids are raised in the cow-
boy lifestyle, then it gets in their blood.
When they grow up, they will always think
of themselves as cowboys or cowgirls.


This 4-H member shows her steer at a county
fair in Maryland. Kids may begin working
on the family ranch when they are 5 or 6.


Out on the range
What a cowboy's life is like depends on
the land. On ranches in prairie states, such
as Nebraska or parts of Texas, the land is
flat. Cowboys can use pickup trucks or all-
terrain vehicles (ATVs) to go out on the
range.
Sometimes cowboys might even herd their
horses into a trailer or truck and drive them
to the pasture. Then they let the horses out
and ride them while checking on the cattle.
In mountainous areas such as Idaho and
Nevada, motorized vehicles may not be prac-
tical. To get to the rocky places where cattle
are grazing, cowboys still need a horse.
In areas such as the Dakotas or Wyoming,
ranchers have to go out to the range several
times a day in the winter to break ice in the
water tanks. When it snows, they have to
deliver hay to the cattle, since cattle can't get to
grass or corn under the snow.


This cowboy rides
under the wide-open
skies of Colorado.
Cowboys and cow-
girls say working in
g'the beautiful out-
", doors is one of the
S . best things about the
- :;:'* . -: cowboy life.,



A cowboy and his horse
All cowboys still rely on horses at least
sometimes. Cowboys often say, "Two heads
are better than one." The horse knows what
it's doing, and the experienced cowboy lets.
the horse do the work of controlling the cat-
tle.
A good cowboy depends on the "horse
sense" of his partner. A good horse knows
how to work with the cattle. For example, the
horse may cut off certain cows from the herd
so the cowboy can check on them and care
for them.


This cowboy, with his horse and dog, drive
a herd of cattle to a new range in Oregon.

Meet a Cowboy Family


A modern cowboy family
The Mini Page talked with members of
a ranch family in western Nebraska, the
Hogsetts.
David Hogsett is a full-time rancher. His
wife, Rita, teaches, and their three kids are
in school.
David and Rita said one of the best
things about the modern cowboy life is that
the whole family works together.
Rita said: "Our kids grew up knowing what
hard work is. This is an advantage. You can
rely on farm and ranch kids; they're
responsible. They didn't always want to go
out and feed the 4-H calves every day, but
you have to."


A life they love
David and Rita named some of the
things they love most about the
cowboy/ranching life. These include:
* The job changes all the time. It is
never boring.
* They are their own bosses.
* They love working with animals.
* It is beautiful outside on the ranch.
* The girls especially love riding horses.
* It is quiet and peaceful.
* Because of the hard work, ranch kids
are probably in better shape than town
kids.
David said: "When we move cows, it's not
work, it's fun. We have fun and goof
around. The social aspect is really fun, too.
There is always someone new working at
the ranch."


The Hogsett kids help herd the cattle
in their "mule," an ATV like a golf
cart. Like many ranch kids, the
Hogsett kids raise their own cattle
for 4-H projects. Most of the money
they earn from their calves goes
toward college.
A special chore for the Hogsett kids
is bottle-feeding the calves.
Sometimes the mother won't care
for her calves, and then the calves
need to be fed through the day and
night.
Hard work
Although it can be fun, the cowboy life
does take a lot of work. David hasn't had a
two-week vacation since he graduated from
college. Animals have to be fed and cared
for every day. When they want a vacation,
the family trades chores with neighbors.
In the spring, David gets up at about
dawn and works until past dark. When
calves are being born, he often stays up all
night. He sometimes can take naps in the
middle of the day.
In spring he checks on the cows in the
middle of the night. Rita checks on them
before she goes to teach.
If there is much snow in the winter,
David has to take hay to the animals every
day in the fields.

More About the Life of a Cowboy


The cowboy family
People used to claim a cowboy's only
friend was his horse. Things are much bet-
ter today.
Before World War II, cowboying was a
lifestyle for single males, usually
teenagers. The cowboy had to be able to go
off for days at a time to follow the cattle.
This didn't allow much opportunity to,
meet girls or to raise a family.
Today this has all changed. Because of
vehicles such as pickups, modem cowboys
can cover a lot more ground more quickly.
The cowboy or cowgirl can go home at
night.
Cowboying has become a family affair.
In many ranch families, both spouses and
the kids work with the cattle.
In the 1800s, the only cowboys who
actually had homes on the ranch were the
owners or people doing jobs such as cook-
ing. There used to be a big separation
between the cattlemen, or owners, and the
hired cowboys.
Today, most owners and hired cowboys
work on the range together. Hired hands
might live with their families in homes on
the range.
Although most hired cowboys are still
men, today there are many women work-
ing on the range, too.

The Mini Page thanks Don Reeves, curator
of The Cowboy Collection, the National
Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in
Oklahoma City, for help with this issue.

um.org/

Look in the TV section of your newspa-
per for listings of old cowboy movies.
How does the movie cowboy life com-
pare to the life of today's cowboy?

Next week The Mini Page is about hot air
balloons.


Modern cowboy tools
Pickups and ATVs are not the only tech-
nology that has changed the life of the cow-
boy. Other important technology includes:
* Cell phones make it much easier to
keep track of cattle conditions and make
sure the cowboy is OK out on the range.
Sometimes, however, there is no connection
out on the range.
Computer chips
are often placed
in ear tags that
each cow wears.
Or computer
chips might be
inserted just
under the cow's
skin close to its
head.


* Computer chips identify the owner
of the cattle and contain important infor-
mation about the cow.
Early ear tags had only the number of
the cow written on them. Today's comput-
erized tags can carry as much information
as the cowboy wants to include. This might
be the cow's medical file, its family tree,
when it was born or whether it is a good
mother.
Cowboys and cowgirls can scan the chip,
just like you scan food in the grocery store.
When they get home, they can download
all the information to their computers.


This cowboy and his
son are moving the
herd from one pas-
ture to another.
Today it is common
for family members
to share the work on
the ranch. Kids grow
up among the ani-
mals.






Cowboy poets
Cowboys have been writing poetry and
songs since the 1800s. Cowboys were often
alone on the range, and writing poetry and
music was a good way to pass the time.
For the past 25 years, cowboy poetry has
become popular with the public as well.
There are hundreds of cowboy poetry gath-
erings across the country each year.
The longest-running such festival is the
National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, held each
winter at the Western Folklife Center in
Elko, Nev.
One teenage cowboy, Oscar Auker, 15,
said reciting poetry is a lot of fun. "A lot of
good people come to these gatherings."
He grew up working with his dad on dif-
ferent ranches. He is home-schooled, and
first explored cowboy poetry as part of a
school assignment.


Oscar Auker, 12 in this photo, recites a
traditional cowboy poem at the National
Cowboy Poetry Gathering. He has been
reciting cowboy poetry there for about
41/2 years.

Math and Technology Summer
Camp Reaches for the STARS


A new summer camp will
help 20 local middle-school
students have fun while
increasing their math, writ-
ing and technology skills
and learning about local
technology careers.
The first STARS Math and
Technology Summer Camp
starts today and runs
through Friday, July 20, from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m at Sleepy Hill
Middle School in Lakeland.
Through Students and
Technology in Academia,
Research and Service
(STARS), students receive
academic and social devel-
opment through mentoring
and applied learning experi-
ences.
Polk County Public
Schools, Polk Community
College, and University of
South Florida Lakeland
worked together to design,
coordinate and implement
the pilot program. A grant
from Broadening
Participation in Computing
helped make the camp pos-
sible.
The STARS camp ends
with a celebration July 20, at


2:30 p.m. at the Polk County
Schools Superintendent's
office in Bartow. Presenting
awards to the camp partici-
pants will be Steve Hull, PCC

USF Lakeland; and Dr. Gall
McKenzie, superintendent
of schools; and Dr. Sherrie
Nickell, associate superin-
tendent.
To reinforce STARS sum-
mer camp activities, the
partnership between PCC,
USF Lakeland and Polk
County Public Schools will
explore extended learning
opportunities during the
2007-2008 school year.
The STARS Alliance aims
to increase the participation
of under-represented popu-
lations, women, and per-
sons with disabilities in
computing disciplines
through multi-faceted inter-
ventions focused on the
influx and progression of
students from middle
school through graduate
school that lead to comput-
ing careers.

Trey Heath, who has
taken the Warriors men's
tennis team to the national
tournament each of the past
two years, has been hired as
the new men's tennis coach
at Florida Southern College.
. Trey Heath replaces Scott
Linn, who resigned after
three seasons to take an
assistant coach's position at
the University of Indiana.
Heath has coached both
the men's and women's ten-
nis teams atWebber the past
two season. This past season
the Webber men were
ranked 14th in the final
NAIA poll and in 2006 they
were ranked 13th.
The men's team's two-
year record under Heath
was 28-13. He also had two
NAIA Scholar-Athletes on
this year's team and three on
his 2006 squad.
"As the director of athlet-
ics, this is a huge loss for
both the men's and women's
programs at Webber; how-
ever, as a father I am very
happy for Trey to take this
prestigious job," said Bill
Heath, director of athletics
at Webber.
A standout tennis player
in high' school, Heath won


state championships in sin-
gles and doubles and
received a tennis scholar-
ship to Lees-McRae College
in North Carolina. After one
season there, he transferred
to Webber and finished his
collegiate playing career
under his father, Bill Heath,
who was Webber's tennis
coach at that time.
Following his graduation,
Heath served as an assistant
coach under his father from
1995-99 and helped guide
the men's team to a fourth-
place finish at the NAIA
Tournament in 1999.
He left the coaching ranks
in 1999 and was involved in
private business and teach-
ing until 2005, when he
returned to Webber as head
tennis coach. He received
his bachelor's degree in
finance in 1994 from
Webber and is nearing com-
pletion of his master's.
degree in business adminis-
tration.
Heath and his wife,
Michelle, have a four-year-
old . daughter, Brianna.
Heath officially begins his
duties at Florida Southern
on Sept. 1.
