OB Service Will End


At Midnight Saturday


Despite a storm of community protest,
Bartow Regional Medical Center will stop
delivering babies at midnight Saturday,
Justin Davis, chief executive officer of the
hospital, told The Democrat early this
afternoon.
When he announced last month that
the hospital was closing its obstetrics
department, Davis said that with only two
obstetricians practicing in the community
- delivering about 300 babies per year
between them --it was not financially


feasible to keep the OB department open.
Some of the hospital beds previously
designated for OB patients are being put
to other use.
"If the circumstances change in regard
to doctors, patients, and physical space,
we will certainly consider reopening," he
said.
Davis has said that emergency room
physicians will be able to deliver babies if
there is insufficient time to transfer
patients to another hospital.


Polk Commissioners To Ask

BRMC To Reconsider Closing


Although uncomfortable with the idea
of telling a private business how to oper-
ate, Polk County commissioners agreed
Wednesday to draft and send a letter to
Bartow Regional Medical Center, asking
the hospital administrators to reconsider
closing obstetrics services.
Reading from Monday's Democrat,
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson suggest-
ed the county letter mirror one sent to the
hospital from the Bartow Breakfast
Rotary Club.
"Bartow is obviously a major growth
area. While adjacent counties are consid-
ering closing public school facilities
because of a decrease in enrollment, Polk
County continues to grow," Wilkinson
said. "Bartow and the surrounding area
have plans for literally thousands of new
homes, starter homes that usually trans-


late into births and classrooms.
"We think of hospitals as treating from
the cradle to the grave," Wilkinson said
after finishing his reading. "It's important
to the economy of Polk County."
Myers was the first to voice the opinion
that it was not the job of the commission
to direct private business, and
Commissioners Jean Reed -and Sam
Johnson echoed his sentiment.
Wilkinson said he did not feel the letter
should take a lecturing tone, but should
be an encouragement to reconsider the
decision.
"They could look at it from the deci-
sion of offering good, quality health care,"
Johnson said.
Commissioners agreed to instruct staff
to draft and send the letter prior to the
scheduled closing, July 28.


Downtown Power Outage


By Dawn Wade
Staff Writer

If a tree falls near downtown, will the
power go out everywhere? The answer is
pretty close to yes. Many residents and busi-
nesses, including the Polk Courthouse and
all the downtown Main Street businesses felt


the loss of power this afternoon. Some resi-
dents and businesses were restored to the
electrical age quickly, but dangerous and
time-consuming repairs kept other resi-
dents without power for two to three hours.
Along with replacing wires, electric depart-
ment workers had to replace a pole. Staff

Bartow Approaching


6,527-Acre Annexation


Bartow, which became
Polk County's second largest
city in land area when it
annexed two-thirds of the
Clear Springs Land Co. prop-
erty six years ago, is on the
verge of annexing the other
one-third.
The zoning board voted
unanimously to recommend
to the city commission that
it annex the remaining 6,527
acres of the Clear Springs
property.
The annexation Would
bring all of the approximate-
ly 18,000 acres of Clear
Springs land under one gov-
:ernmental jurisdiction -
the City of Bartow. At pre-
sent, the area outside the
city limits comes under the
'jurisdiction of the Polk
County Commission.
"Everybody believes 'it
would make more sense for
this to be a City of Bartow
issue," Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers told the zoning
board.
*Even with Bartow as the
lead agency, county and
state agencies will be
involved in the review
process for development of
the property under the
state's newly-authorized


"optional sector plan"
process for developments of
more than 10,000 acres, he
said.
The county in particular
will be involved in trans-
portation planning, he
added.
The Clear Springs proper-
ty mostly mined-over
phosphate land stretches
as far south as the south side
of County Road 640 near
Homeland. The parcel south
of CR 640 is in Fort Meade's
utilities service area, while
the balance of the land is
served by Bartow electric,
water and sewer systems, he
said.
Bartow and Fort Meade
need to coordinate utilities
service within the Fort
Meade service area after
both cities again have regu-
lar city managers, he said. At
present, both cities have
interim city managers;
appointed after dismissal of
their predecessors.
Wiegers said there is no
rush on the property south
of CR 640 because it is not
likely to be developed soon.
Clear Springs property
starts north of Bartow, on
the south side of Bartow


Municipal Airport, and
wraps around the east and
south sides of the city,
extending west as far as
County Road 555.
Zoning Board Member
Gail Schreiber said the pro-
posed annexation appears
to create an enclave south-
west of Bartow. An enclave is
a parcel of land surrounded
by the city limits, but which
has not been annexed.
Wiegers said there are
three or four similar parcels
within the annexation area,
and that Interim City Atty.
John Murphy doesn't see a
problem.
Schreiber noted that
despite the size of the pro-
posed annexation, which
has been widely publicized,
nobody from the public
appeared at the zoning
board's public hearing to
express an opinion on the
annexation, pro or con.
Wiegers said the annexa-
tion will go to the city com-
mission for action in August,
possibly as early as its Aug. 6
meeting.

Millage Tax Rate


To Decrease In Polk


County taxes will
decrease this year.
Polk commissioners set
tentative rates for the library
and parks municipal service
taxing units and the county-
wide millage rates
Wednesday.
A public hearing on all
rates is scheduled Sept. 12.
At the hearing, the tax rates
may be lowered, but can not
increase from the tentative
rates approved Wednesday.
The proposed library
MSTU tax rate is .2318 mills.
This tax is paid for by resi-
dents in the county only.
The tax money goes toward
the Polk County Library
Cooperative, which allows
all residents of the county


free cards and books at any
library in the county.
The park rate is .4219
mills. Again, this tax is only
paid by county, not munici-
pal, residents, for use of
recreation areas in the
county and local cities. The
money is used for improve-
ments in recreation offer-
ings in the county.
The countywide village
rate is 6.8911, a decrease of
1.398 mills from last year.
Commissioner Sam
Johnson said he had
received some e-mails ques-
tioning if this new rate was
less than the rollback rate,
and assured the public it
was.
The rollback rate is deter-


mined by what millage is
needed to generate the
same revenue as last year,
less the cost of new con-
struction. This year, the roll-
back rate is more than seven
and a half mills, an increase
over the proposed rate.
One mill in the county-
wide rate is set aside for use
for roads only, the rest of the
money pays for the general
fund uses, land stewardship
and debt service in the
county.
The new rate means a
homeowner in the county
with a $100,000 worth of
taxable home value will pay-
$754 in taxes this year.

Health & Nutrition


Nutrition Notes


How Much Exercise Do You Need?


A recent study in the
Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA)
shows that even exerising
less than standard recom-
mendations offers some
health benefits.
But it was published just
one month after another
study found that getting
beyond the standard 30
minutes of daily moderate
activity brings dramatically
better weight control.
The emerging message of
these and previous studies
seems to be: the benefits of
physical activity vary with
how much you do.
The good news that every
little bit helps comes from a
study of 464 sedentary, post-
menopausal women who
were all either overweight or
obese.
The women were ran-
domly assigned to one of
four activity-level groups:
three of the groups provided
supervised exercise at either
50, 100, or 150 percent of the
National Institutes of Health
recommended physical
activity, which aims for
about 30 minutes five days a
week.
The fourth group was a
non-exercising group. The
group at 50 percent exer-
cised for an average of 72
minutes weekly. The group
at 150 percent got in an aver-
age 192 minutes of weekly
exercise. Participants were
not instructed to cut calo-
ries.
After six months, three
different measurements
showed all three activity
groups were more fit, even in
the 50 percent group that
exercised the equivalent of
15 minutes five days a week.
Each increase in exercise
brought a greater improve-


ment in fitness.
The JAMA study adds fur-
ther support to the 2001
findings from the Women's
Health Study that those who
walked even 60 to 90 min-
utes weekly developed about
half the heart disease as
sedentary women. However,
in this new study, only the
group exercising the longest
showed a drop in blood'
pressure. And despite the
improvements in overall fit-
ness, none of the groups lost
weight.
All three exercise groups
did, however, show over an
inch drop in waist measure-
ment despite lack of weight
loss.
The other recently pub-
lished study found that it
may take a lot of exercise to
affect weight loss. The study
randomly assigned 202 men
and women ages 25 to 50 to
either a standard behavior
change weight reduction
program or one that
required more exercise.
Participants were about
30 to 70 pounds overweight.
Both programs included a
low-calorie diet. The stan-
dard program instructed
members to burn about
1,000 calories per week
(about 30 minutes a day of
moderate activity, such as
walking); the high-exercise
group was asked to burn
about 2,500 calories per
week (about 75 minutes of
exercise a day).
All study participants
exercised on their own and
for 18 months they met reg-
ularly with a group leader. At
six months, weight loss
between the two groups was
essentially the same.
After that, even though
the treatment program last-
ed 18 months, the standard


group began regaining
weight and the high-exercise
group did not. At 12 months
and 18 months, the high-
exercise group had lost more
weight, even though many
in the high-exercise group
did not reach the 75 minutes
per day goal.
After one year without
group support, average exer-
cise levels were roughly the
same for both groups and
the "high-exercise group"
had lost only slightly more
weight than the standard
group.
However, there remained
a link between participants
who exercised the most and
weight loss. Those who were
exercising the equivalent of
at least 75 minutes five days
a week lost more than 10
times as much weight as
those exercising less than 30
minutes five times a week.
Participants exercising
the most also showed much
less weight regain.
A variety of studies over
the years have shown an
association between 30 min-
utes of daily moderate exer-
cise and reduced heart dis-
ease and diabetes. Some
studies have shown 30 min-
utes of daily exercise can
lead to weight loss and/or a
fitter body.
However, as these studies
show, if you've been exercis-
ing and not losing weight,
you may need to add anoth-
er 15 to 30 minutes of activi-
ty, change what you eat, or
both.

Catfish Recipe Makes Eating Fish Easy


American Institute
for Cancer Research
We all know we should eat
more fish.
It's an excellent source of
protein without the usual
drawbacks. That is, it has far
less saturated fat than meat
and more benevolent omega
3 fats. Furthermore, a piece
of fish is likely to have fewer
calories than an equivalent
sized piece of meat.
Cooked with a medley.of
vegetables or a vegetable-
based sauce, your fish dish
will be low-cal, full of health
benefits and delicious.
So why don't more of us
prepare fish for dinner? For
most Americans the reason
is simple: we don't because
we don't.
We simply aren't accus-
tomed to buying fish and
cooking it. This recipe is a
good place to start. Don't be
shy. At the fish counter, ask
for four filets of catfish total-
ing about one pound. In this
case, farmed catfish is
preferable.
Then buy your vegetables,
and when you get home
simply follow the directions
in the recipe. You will proba-
bly end up spending more
time on the vegetables than
the fish. It's worth the effort.

look and mild flavor of the
fish. In addition, each of the
vegetables brings you phyto-
chemicals your body needs
to fight disease.
Serve the fish with a green
vegetable and a whole grain
like brown rice, bulgur or
kasha, and you've got a deli-
cious, healthy summer meal.
Roasted Catfish with
Tomatoes and Red Pepper
4, medium tomatoes,
halved crosswise
1 medium red bell pep-
per, seeded and cut into 1/2-
inch strips
1 medium Spanish onion,
cut in 1/2-inch wedges.
3 peeled garlic cloves
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive
oil
Salt and white pepper, to
taste
Canola oil spray
4 catfish filets, about 4
ounces each
1/2 cup sherry vinegar
1tbsp. sugar
Preheat the oven to 375
degrees. In a bowl, coat the
tomato halves, red pepper,
onion, and garlic clove with
the oil. Arrange them in one
layer on a baking sheet with
tomatoes cut-side up.
Lightly sprinkle with salt
and white pepper. Roast the


vegetables 15 minutes.
Transfer the tomatoes to a
cutting board to cool. Roast
the remaining vegetables 15
minutes longer, until tender
but still firm. Set aside, leav-
ing the oven on.
Coat a large baking dish
with cooking spray. Spray
the fish with the oil and sea-
son with salt and white pep-
per. Place the skillet in the
oven and bake the fish 20-25
minutes, or until opaque in
the center.
Meanwhile, coarsely chop
the tomatoes. Place in a
sieve and let them drain for a
minute. Then place in a
bowl. Chop the remaining
vegetables and add to the
tomatoes.
Boil the vinegar and sugar
in a small pan over high heat
until syrupy, like a sauce,
about 2-3 minutes.
Place the roasted veggies
equally on each of four din-
ner plates. Top with a serving
of catfish. Drizzle with the
vinegar sauce and serve
immediately.
Serves four.

Railroads Should Do Their Part At Crossings


Racing a train to a crossing is a
bad bet that is best left to stunt dri-
vers in action movies.
The results too often are tragic, as
was the case in a crash in Lakeland
last week that took the lives of four
young adults.
Young people too often believe
that they are invincible, whether
behind the wheel of a car or in other
potentially dangerous places. The
boldness of youth eventually
morphs into the caution of adult-
hood, and finally the paranoia of
senior citizenhood.
After every such tragedy, the ques-
tion always arises: What was the dri-
ver thinking?
A story in The Tampa Tribune a
few days ago gives an insight.
Perhaps it is less the thrill of out-
running a speeding train than a
sense of frustration over the time
spent at a crossing gate watching a
slow freight train creep toward the
crossing.
A federal standard requires that


gates be triggered at least 20 seconds
before a train reaches the crossing.
The sensors that trigger a crossing
gate measure only the distance of
the train from the crossing, not the
speed it is traveling.
Thus, a passenger train traveling
75 miles per hour can reach the
crossing in 22 to 24 seconds, while a
lumbering freight train may take a
minute-and-a-quarter, The Tribune
reported.
Any motorist who has traveled
Central Florida highways has experi-
enced such lengthy waits as a phos-
phate-laden freight train approach-
es or leaves a fertilizer plant, often at
a snail's pace.
A federal study made in 2004
reported that "times longer than 30
seconds are thought to cause impa-
tience in some share of drivers."
And that impatience can translate
into taking a risk and whipping
around a crossing gate, a dangerous
and illegal act.
The study recommends that the


standard for crossing gates be
changed to 30 seconds before the
train reaches the crossing, regard-
less of the speed of the train.
Technology exists to achieve that
standard, The Tribune reported.
We would suggest another factor
also contributes to motorist impa-
tience at railroad crossings: the
unpredictable amount of time that a
train takes to cross the highway.
Few things are more maddening
than to sit at a crossing on a multi-
lane highway as a freight train slow-
ly grinds to a halt, then reverses
direction, halts again, and starts
back in its original direction, all the
time at a slow crawl.
Such conduct should be forbid-
den by state or federal law. Railroad
companies obviously have the right
to share the nation's transportation
system, and that includes the right,
when unavoidable, to block cross-
ings, impeding scores, even hun-
dreds of vehicles at a time.
It should not include the right to


arrogantly stop and reverse direc-
tion while blocking highways.
We recall a number of years ago an
occasion on State Road 60 when a
stopped train blocked the access of
an ambulance to a wrecked car on
the far side of the crossing. The engi-
neer refused to break the train and
let the ambulance cross.
It was not until a state trooper told
the engineer that he would be
charged with manslaughter if the
motorist died that the engineer
decided it would be wise to clear the
crossing.
Motorists who race trains to cross-
ings do so at their peril.
Requiring trains to be reasonable
by limiting the time that crossings
are blocked could reduce the temp-
tation to do so.
If nothing else, it would reduce
the blood pressure of countless
motorists each day.


FiftyYears Ago
Authorization was voted
yesterday to employ Gordon
Pettey, Lakeland attorney, to
assist County Atty. William K.
Love in the Polk County
Budget Commission circuit
court lawsuit brought last
month to test the constitu-
tionality of the commission.
Supervising Principal
Vernon Dozier today urged
local residents who have
rooms, apartmelits or homes
to rent to contact him as he
seeks living accommodations
for new teachers who will be
arriving here soon for the
coming school year.
Forty-Five Years Ago
The Negro elementary
school to be erected in East
Bartow will have a number of
new features, Architect Leslie
G. Pickett has said.
Completely air-conditioned,
the building will have three
tiers of classrooms, served by
two interior corridors in each
wing, and has been designed
to permit an additional wing
of 12 classrooms as school
population grows.
Bartow's All-Stars, winner
of the District 4 Little League
baseball tournament here,
will play in the state tourna-
ment at Tampa next week. The
local team will see action in
the second game Wednesday
night against the winner of
the District 1- District 6 game
scheduled on Tuesday.
Main Street Market, which
has served Bartow families for
50 years, will vanish from the
local scene at the close of
business Saturday. Founded
in 1912, the store was bought
by Mrs. Ethel Langford in 1915
and was operated by her until
her death in 1960.
Dr. James S. Cason, who
has served as acting director
of the Polk County Health
Dept. for more than a year,
was named permanent direc-
tor of the agency by the coun-


ty commission on Tuesday.
Forty Years Ago
City and county crews
joined forces to try to destroy
the James Whidden home and
to fill the cavernous sinkhole
in its front yard. They met
with much resistance. The
house fought stubbornly, but
finally succumbed. The sink-
hole is holding its own.
Former Mayor-Commis-
sioner B.L. Durrance, Jr., was
named Bartow Municipal
Airport manager Friday after-
noon. City commissioners,
acting as a newly-organized
Bartow Municipal Airport
Authority, named Mayor C.A.
Richardson temporary chair-
man, and Commissioner W.B.
Geiger as vice-chairman.
Coming off the floor like a
fighter with his second wind,
the Bartow All-Stars won the
Pony League Dixie Youth
Baseball tournament here
yesterday afternoon with a
tightly-pitched 3-to-0 victory
over East Lakeland. Bartow
lost the first game of the dou-
ble elimination tournament
to East Lakeland, then rallied
to defeat Lakeland, Palmetto,
Kathleen and East Lakeland
twice. Superior pitching depth
carried Bartow to four straight
wins after the opening loss.
Thirty-Five Years'Ago
Dr. Robert M. Blackburn,
son of a former Bartowan, has
been named as one of six new
bishops of the United
Methodist Church and has
been assigned to the Raleigh,
N.C., area.
The last of four men sought
in the robbery 'of a Bartow
woman, almost exactly one
year ago has been returned to
Bartow from Georgia after a
four-month-long extradition
battle. The other three men
are serving prison terms of up
to 20 years. The four men are
charged with robbing Mrs.
Mildred Sellers and her family
of $80,000 in cash and jewelry


at their Star Lake home on
Aug. 2, 1971.
More recent crime:
Burglars stole an estimated
$500 worth of guns and
ammunition from Tate-
Phillips Hardware over the
weekend.
ThirtyYears Ago
An unidentified, quick
thinking man is credited by
Mrs. M. Sand with saving her
life when she almost choked
to 'death while eating dinner
at Mike's Restaurant on
Saturday. She "inhaled" a par-
ticle .of bread, she said.
Unable to get her breath, she
staggered outside, choking
and gasping. The unidentified
man recognized her symp-
toms, placed both arms
around her and squeezed her
chest hard, causing ejectiop of
the food.
Two former undercover
Polk County sheriff's investi-
gators were named today as
the men who stole 700
pounds of marijuana from the
Hall of Justice on Jan. 15.
Twenty-Five Years Ago
Three banks "responded
favorably" to the city's request
for a loan, City Mgr. James R.
O'Connor reported, with
Florida National Bank at
Bartow offering the best
terms: $800,000 for 10 years,
at a rate of 9.57 percent for the
next four years, which is 58
percent of the existing prime
rate. In return, the city will
deposit, as "compensating
balances," its two checking
accounts payroll and cen-
tral cash fund exclusively
with Florida National.
Tax news: The Polk County
school board voted to approve
a tax that is 3.6 percent higher,
and the county commission-
ers certified a levy of 4.591
mills, the highest that can be
levied under the new rules
laid down by the Florida
Legislature.


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

43 Years and Counting


Anyone who has ever
served in the military can
give you two dates: the date
entered on active duty, and
the date of discharge.
You may not remember
many other specifics, but
those two dates are embla-
zoned in your brain.
I entered the Army on
July 26, 1962 seven weeks
after graduating from FSU
and being commissioned.
through ROTC and was
discharged on July 25, 1964,
completing my two years of
draft-era obligatory service.
It was a point of pride
with me never to have been
unemployed, so on the fol-
lowing day July 26, 1964
- I went to work as manag-
ing editor of The Polk
County Democrat.
I am now embarking on
the start of my 44th year in
this business (not counting
three years working as a
reporter at The Tallahassee
Democrat while a student at
Florida State, or my previ-
ous experience as a newspa-
per carrier, and later carrier
foreman, at The Democrat
while in junior high and
high school).
In that four-plus decades,
the technology of our indus-
try has progressed more
dramatically than in any
other era since the inven-
tion of movable type.

When I started out at The
Democrat, most type was
set on two Linotype
machines, fascinating
pieces of equipment so
complex that the inventor, a
guy named Mergenthaler,
went insane after inventing
it.
Large display lines for
both news stories and
advertisements were set in
handset type, some of it
made of specially-hardened
wood.
We still had a lot of hand-
set body type, including an
elaborate face that we used
for society headlines.
There was a finite num-
ber of each letter, and Betsy
Ravenel, our society editor,
had to keep track of how
many capital M's and W's
she had used.


If Miss Melodie Marie
Morris Wed William
Wadsworth Waters on
Wednesday at the Methodist
Church, we were in the
soup.
In 1964, we were printing
on an eight-page flatbed
press than had an operating
speed of 3,600 copies an
hour.

In fall of that year, we
moved into our present
location on South Florida
Avenue, a building that was
built as a livery stable in
1908.
We began printing on a
16-page tubular press which
ran at several times the
speed of the flatbed. That
press was half of the 32-
page press that once had
printed The Orlando
Sentinel.
We expanded to four
typesetting machines (three
Linotypes and a larger
machine called an
Intertype).We created cylin-
drical page casts to run on
the tubular press.
With the doubled press
capacity and higher operat-
ing speed, the printing
became far more efficient.

In 1970, we made the
conversion to offset print-
ing, in which images are cre-
ated through a photograph-
ic process.
We purchased a 12-page
offset press with an operat-
ing speed of around 14,000
papers per hour. Although
we lost four pages of print-
ing capacity, the improve-
ments in print quality and
efficiency made it well
worthwhile.
In ensuing years, we
would add a fourth printing
unit (giving us a 16-page
capacity), then a four-color
unit. Virtually every issue we
publish, today has full color
in every section.
When we went offset, we
initially used phototypeset-
ters, which created the
image of type on photo-
graphic paper. It was a
quantum step forward, but
an expensive one. Silver is a
major component of photo-
graphic paper.


The next step was to go to
laser printers. The money
we saved on phototypeset-
ting paper was enough to
pay for an entire new type-
setting system. Stories were
still set in type one at a time,
and pasted up (we used
sticky wax, not paste) to cre-
ate the finished page.
Our next step was a more
sophisticated laser printer
system. We gained the abili-
ty to make up an entire page
from a computer screen.

With our sale to Sun
Coast Media Group the first
of this year, we are out-
putting pages direct to film
on a device called an
Imagesetter, or Imager, for
short.
When it is good, it is very,
very good; when it is bad...
well, you remember the
nursery rhyme.

Over those 43 years, we
began publishing a Fort
Meade edition (now The
Fort Meade Leader), estab-
lished Polk County Times (a
monthly publication for
county employees) and pur-
chased The Lake Wales
News.

As I embark on my 44th
year, I find myself increas-
ingly surrounded by people
who have mastered equip-
ment and processes that
remain largely a mystery to
me.
And that is okay.
It has been a fascinating
journey, and it is not over.-
Mary and I have employ-
ment contracts with Sun
Coast that run through Dec.
31, 2009. I have declared
many times that unlike the
three generations of Frisbie
males who have preceded
me in this business, I intend
to retire while I am suffi-
ciently nimble in mind and
body to do whatever it is
that retired people do.
There are several people
around here who will give
you pretty good odds
against it.
I've got some good advice
for you: don't take the bet.

Save Our BIRTH Place


PCMA Board 'Appalled'


The Polk County Medical
Assn. Board of Trustees is
appalled that Bartow
Regional Medical Center
has closed its obstetrical
department and has not
temporarily reopened it so
that pregnant women who
have anticipated delivering
at Bartow Regional Medical
Center can continue to see
their obstetricians and
deliver their children in
safety.
We believe that Bartow
Regional Medical Center
has done a great disservice
to the residents of Polk
County by capriciously and
without adequate notice
terminating its obstetrical
services in such a fashion
as to leave pregnant


women without a hospital
at which to deliver and
without a physician to
deliver them.
Women in their third and
late second trimester of
pregnancy will find it
extremely difficult if not
impossible to find another
obstetrician willing to
accept their obstetrical care
so late in their pregnancy
and on such short notice.
This could be completely
avoided if Bartow Regional
Medical Center reopens the
obstetrical unit of Bartow
until the end of this calen-
dar year. This will ensure
that pregnant women who
anticipated delivering at
Bartow can do so safely
with the obstetrician they


have chosen.
Bartow Hospital has
shown a blatant disregard
for the safety and well-
being of their pregnant
patients by abruptly with-
drawing obstetrical ser-
vices.
We implore Bartow
Regional Medical Center to
reconsider this dreadful
decision so that the preg-
nant women who antici-
pated delivering at Bartow
may do so without undue
emotional and physical
stress.

Small Hospitals Can Support OB


OCILLA, GA. I have
closely followed your cover-
age of the proposed closing
of the Bartow OB unit
through my subscription to
The Polk County Democrat.
As a former resident of
Bartow and a registered
nurse, I find the decision to
close this unit irresponsible,
to say the least.
I live in a largely agricul-
turally-based community.
The population of the coun-
ty at last count was less than
10,000.
For several years I worked
in the local hospital (28
beds) wearing many hats. At
the time, we had two general
practitioners here in Ocilla.
As part of their practice, they
delivered babies. They were
not ,making a living deliver-
ing babies, and the hospital
did not fully staff the labor
and delivery rooms.
When the patients stated
that they were going to
deliver their baby at our hos-
pital, the hospital was noti-
fied; nine months later we
delivered their baby. We
delivered at the most 50 to
100 babies a year. Most of
the time, everything went
fine. Occasionally, however,
we did end up transferring
one to the Macon neonatal
intensive care unit. It was
not just 12 to 15 miles up the
road. We transferred our
babies 100 miles to another
facility.
,. We did not staff the
department full time as it
.was not full every day. We
did not staff the emergency
room every day, as there
were days we would only see
two or three patients. We did
not have an intensive care
-unit; instead we practiced
one-on-one nursing care.
We staffed according to
Sinpatient census and need.
.All the nurses on staff
were able to handle the
delivery room, emergency
room, and medical surgical


patients. We might have
been small, but the staff was
prepared for most situa-
tions. Critical patients were
stabilized and transported to
a larger facility.
We cared enough about
our community to. take con-
tinuing education classes
and training; even though
we may or may not have
needed or used that knowl-
edge, the staff was prepared.
Many of our patients stat-
ed they preferred to receive
treatment at our "little" hos-
pital because they were
treated as people, not dis-
eases. Personal experience
has taught me that smaller
hospitals have a better abili-
ty to connect with their
patients.
A community hospital
that serves the needs of the
community well is much
better than a large, cold,
impersonal, facility that
treats only the money-mak-
ing illnesses that present to
them.
If you consider the popu-
lation of Bartow and the sur-
rounding areas served by the
hospital, I find it hard to
believe that the hospital
cannot "efficiently maintain"
an obstetrics unit. Any
demographer can look at the
statistics and see that the
population of these areas
can and will continue to
grow.
This being said, I have a
question asked by apparent-
ly many others that BMH
has failed to answer to my
satisfaction: How many
babies does it take to be
"cost effective"?
If the department is not in
use, and the nurses are being
used elsewhere, what is the
problem? If the manage-
ment of the hospital had any
floor time, they would know
that the floor could also be
used for surgical overflow,
outpatient overflow, or any
other "clean services" per-


formed at this facility.
I suggest the manage-
ment of BRMC take a good
long hard look at how much
"management expenses"
could be utilized for active
OB recruitment.
If profit is an issue, they
might look a little deeper at
our own "little hospital." It
has since grown to 300-plus
babies a year, when an OB
doctor took it over. They
have added additional radi-
ology equipment, built a
new addition and greatly
expanded their scope of out-
patient services.
There are many issues in
health care today, one of
them being money. As a
teacher, I am well aware of
budgets and cutbacks.
Oftentimes, I fund my class-
room needs out of my own
pocket. Otherwise, I find cre-
ative ways to utilize the
materials on hand.
Health care should always
place the needs of the
patient above the cost of the
services. How many patients
are needed to make the
emergency room profitable?
How many patients are
needed to make the ortho-
pedic department prof-
itable? Why not focus on the
needs of the community?
If I were a CEO with one of
the many companies that
are relocating in Central
Florida, I would consider the
local hospital's ability to
meet the needs of my
employees.
Obstetrics would be one
of the needs I would look for,
in addition to outstanding
general care. Specialization
is a necessity in medicine,
but general care even more
so. What services are needed
and performed the most?
My opinion would be to
serve the needs of the com-
munity first; the wants of the
shareholders second.

Don't Do This To Mothers, Children


I was born Elizabeth Ann Shiver (now
Coker) on Nov. '10, 1938, at what was then
Bartow Memorial Hospital.
My two daughters, Cyndi and Cheryl,
were both born in the same building just
a different wing 25 years later.
If I remember correctly, Bartow doctors
couldn't deliver babies in out-of-town hos-


pitals.
I'd hate to think that I might have had to
change doctors in mid-pregnancy or been
required to travel further distances at any
stage of labor.
Please don't do this to our expectant
mothers and our precious unborn children.

DecisionWill Impact Bartow's Growth


The Bartow Board of
Realtors has written a letter
to Mr. Justin Davis, CEO of
Bartow Regional Medical
Center, asking for the recon-
sideration of stopping the
deliveries of babies at
Bartow Regional.
We feel it is a sad day for
this community when no
one any longer could say


they were born in Bartow.
The quality of life in our
community is affected when
services of this type are not
available in the local hospi-
tal.
We realize that business
considerations led them to
this decision, but we feel
they need to look at the
broader picture.


Growth is important to
the hospital and our town.
We feel that young couples
and growing families will
choose another place to live
when they realize that their
children cannot be born in
Bartow's hospital.

BRMC Patients 'Not Just a Number'


I had such a great experi-
ence with Dr. Nobo and the
nursing staff in the OB unit
at BMH.
I was fortunate enough to
have some of the same nurs-
es all three times. Each
experience was unique. I
would not have changed a
thing.
I admire and love Dr.


Nobo and would do
absolutely anything for him.
He helped to bring our most
precious gifts into this
world. To think he will not
be doing this. any more is
simply a waste of his talents.
Mr. Davis, if you read this,
please know it is such a great
feeling not to be just anoth-
er number. That is some-


thing you get in a small town
or community.
Please reconsider your
decision.
It is like the sign reads
when you enter our city,
"Our History Comes To Life."
Please let us continue to
make history in Bartow.

A Thank You To Our Readers:

In the past month, you have sent us 57

letters to the editor and shared photos of

45 babies who were born at Bartow

Memorial Hospital and Bartow Regional

Medical Center.

Some of the accounts were poignant; all

had happy endings.

Many of you attended a community

forum to ask questions and express your
opinions.

We have published a number of stories

on this issue, along with two editorials

and a rather intensely personal column.

We said at the outset that we didn't

know if our readers and your newspaper

could bring about a reversal ofBRMC's

decision to terminate obstetrical services.

But we were determined to make hospi-

tal officials aware of the intensity of

community interest in this issue. We did

not want Health Management Asso-

ciates to be able to say "Gee, we didn't

know anybody cared!"

With your help, we have achieved that

end. Thank you!

On behalf of Bartow Regional Medical Center, as a hospital organization, we

We will work individually with any patient who was scheduled to deliver at

willing to meet with any patient who has been inconvenienced by this decision.
Please call 519-1402 to arrange a meeting time.

Several local physician groups have expressed a willingness to accept any

A RELATIVE NEWCOMER to Arcadia's vintage clothes and jewelry will find tempta-
antique district, Tickled Pink has only been tions in this display. (Staff photo by John
open about two months. Anyone who loves Lawhorne)


Arcadia Antique District Evolves


The Arcadia antique dis-
trict, a tremendous attrac-
tion for visitors, keeps evolv-
ing as new antique stores
appear older stores go out of
business, others change loca-
tion and some prosper.

By JOHN LAWHORNE
Staff Writer

DESOTO COUNTY- The
antique district of Arcadia is
constantly evolving as new
antique stores appear, older
stores go out of business,
others change location and
some prosper. Here are a few
of the changes that have
taken place lately.
Tickled Pink
Rachel Connerton's
Tickled Pink is kind of like a
new kid on the block.
: "This is my first store,"
Connerton said. She opened
-the store at 127 West Oak
:Street about two months
ago. "Junk is in my blood,"
:she said.
Connerton, who com-
mutes daily from'"Palmetto,
said she does not specialize
:in any particular kind of
:antiques. She learned the
:trade with a three-year stint
-as a dealer at the antique
district's venerable store,
:The Vintage Garden, before
:opening her own store. "I
-just love it. I love dealing in
:junk."
She rents booths to other
:antique vendors. "I rent to
:people," she said, "but I
open up the store to them."
SThis, she said, creates a
blend of antiques. People
','like my store because of the
blend. "They like a mixture."
She opens her store daily
from "10-ish to 6-ish."

U NamIt
If Connerton is starting
out fresh, Debbie Badger is
closing her antique store U
Nam It after 10 years. The
store is located on the south-
east corner of West Oak
Street and Monroe Avenue.
SWith the store closing down
and out, the prices are


attractive, with the furniture
going for 60 percent off and
the few remaining col-
lectibles going for 50 percent
off.
Badger has bought the
Curves physical fitness cen-
ter at 12 DeSoto Avenue and
will be going into the exer-
cise business.

Flagler Antiques
At the east end of down-
town Oak Street, antique
dealers Sophie De Lacroix
and her husband John
Vavrovsky have opened the
Flagler Antiques store and
brought a taste of France to
the district. They have oper-
ated an antique business in
Fort Lauderdale for several
years and .are now trying a
new territory in Arcadia. The
business has a 10,000-
square-foot warehouse in
Lake Wales.
According to the Flagler
Antiques Web site, the com-
pany offers a large selection
of, authentic antiques,
including: buffets, armoires,
tables, chairs and desks.
There is also a selection of
paintings, sculptures, chan-
deliers and lamps, all
imported directly from
France.
"Our store was voted the
best antique in Fort
Lauderdale for many years,"
she said.
De Lacroix said the 6,000-
square-foot store showroom
in Arcadia would be open
five days a week from
Wednesday to Sunday. The
business opened about two
months ago.
"We deal mostly with
French antiques, she said.
"We have over 200 clocks."

Then & Now
A short way down Monroe
Avenue from Oak Street,
Barbara Halbritter endures
the summer lull that drives
most antique buyers off the
streets. Halbritter has oper-
ated Then & Now antiques at
14 South Monroe for two
years.
Halbritter is a retired

computer software techni-
cian who could not just
retire and do nothing.
"I'm not the type to sit
home," she said. "So I decid-
ed to do something I like. I
love buying and selling." She
moved to Florida from Las
Vegas five years ago after a
career installing hotel com-
puter software, a job that
took her all over the world.
"I'm still learning about
antiques," Halbritter said.
"You'll never know every-
thing about antiques."
The biggest problem she
has is the summer lull. It gets
too quiet, she said.
"I like it when you have a
full shop."
Arcadia Tea Room
One of the antique dis-
trict's familiar businesses,
especially to out-of-town
visitors, the Arcadia Tea
Room, has moved its loca-
tion from the Arcade
Building to a storefront loca-
tion at 12 West Oak Street,
near the Tree of Knowledge.
The Tea Room's propri-
etors, Don and Barb
McClurg, are varying their
operation by combining an
antique store with a restau-
rant operation.
The McClurgs came to
town and bought the Tea
Room just a week after
Hurricane Charley clob-
bered the downtown area.
Along with the McClurg's
new business angle comes a
new name. Henceforth, their
store will be known as the
Arcadia Tea Room
Emporium, featuring
antiques and "casual din-
ing."
There is history is the new
location, according to Barb.
"This building was one of
the three buildings that sur-
vived the disastrous 1905 fire
that destroyed downtown
Arcadia."

Be On The Lookout

For Lottery Scam


Florida Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink is warning
consumers to be on the
lookout for a bogus lottery
contest scam that includes a
letter indicating the recipi-
ent has won money from the
"North American Prize Pool"
along with a check that
appears to be a state of
Florida warrant and con-
tains the CFO's name and
signature but it is all
bogus, warned Sink.
"So far we have no infor-
mation that anyone has
cashed the check or been
financially harmed, but
these vultures are playing a
numbers game," said Sink,
who oversees the depart-
ment. "They are sending out
hundreds of bogus letters
and checks hoping that if
only one percent of the
recipients respond they will
be able to make some easy
money."
The bogus checks have
been traced so far to
Washington, California,
Hawaii, Pennsylvania and
Florida.
The letter indicates it
comes from the "Lottery,
Resources Management &
Payment Verification
Center" and provides a
British Columbia address.
The last sentence of the
letter advises consumers


against sharing the informa-
tion with others: "Please
note that in accordance with
our company's policy... and
safety reasons, we strongly
advice [sic] that you keep
your winnings and claim
number confidential and
personal."
The letter claims the
recipient has won $100,000,
provides a claim number
and directs the recipient to
contact Jean Gorden at 1-
416-854-2096.
The letter states that the
enclosed check for $3,850 is
intended to cover non-resi-
dence taxes, but upon call-
ing the phone number pro-
vided in the letter, the recip-
ient is directed to cash the
check and use the cash to
buy a MoneyGram to send to
an address in Toronto,
Ontario.
Each of the checks includ-
ed in the letters contain the
same warrant number,
7714957150. Canadian offi-
cials have been advised of
the scam.
The Department's Bureau
of Fiscal Integrity is looking
into the matter.
Anyone who receives one
of these letters is asked to
call the Department's
Consumer Helpline at 1-
800-342-2762.

High School Students Travel

To SEU for Summer Camps


They came from far and
wide to learn music, study
art and science, and earn
college credits at
Southeastern.
Last month Southeastern
University played host to
four summer .camps where
youths studied subjects
from science to
Shakespeare. Both campers
and organizers said the the-
atre arts camp, worship
leaders camp, college music
preparatory workshop, and
the summer scholars camp
deepened students' knowl-
edge and positioned them to
excel in their future college
- and musical- careers.
Seventeen-year-old Emily
Spunaugle traveled about
1,400 miles from Marysville,
Kans. to attend
Southeastern's 2007 Summer
Scholars Camp, June 17-29.
The camp's Jesus Christ-cen-
tered philosophy and
Spunaugle's ability to earn
six credits toward college for
less than $1,000 won her
over, she said.
"It was a vacation and a
college visit and college
credit," said Spunaugle,
adding that she plans to
attend Southeastern's
Summer Scholar's Camp
next year.
Spunaugle was one of 41
high school juniors and
seniors who got a taste of
:academic college life in the
Summer Scholars Camp.
The 13-day program consist-


ed of classes, which ranged
from music and art appreci-
ation to marriage and family
studies. Southeastern's
Summer Scholars Camp also
enabled students to earn up
to seven college credits.
Spunaugle appreciated
the high energy and knowl-
edge of her camp instruc-
tors, she said. Spunaugle,
who has played piano for 12
years, said it was at the
Summer Scholars Camp
where she has first gotten to
learn about the history of
music from the 1400s to
present.
In Southeastern's College
Music Preparatory
Workshop,. 15 young musi-
cians, who plan to study
music in college, learned
music theory and history,
and received valuable career
and auditioning advice at
the June 17-24 camp.
Fifteen-year-old electric
guitarist Thomas Sabatino of
Lakeland was one of them.
Sabatino, a junior at George
W. Jenkins Senior High
School, said he learned a lot
of music theory and ways to
play the guitar with his fin-
gers versus with a guitar
pick. He also leaned how to
play scales, identify different
intervals -.the difference in
pitch between two tones -
and how to read certain
types of chords in sheet
music.
Southeastern music pro-
fessors involved in the work-


shop had a huge impact on
the students, Danny Tindall,
chairman of Southeastern's
music department, said. In
just one week the students,
all but one deciding to
attend Southeastern for col-
lege, learned enough music
theory to be exempt from
the entrance exam given to
incoming music majors.
Most chose to demon-
strate their newly-honed
skills at a performance con-
cert held at the All Saints'
Episcopal Church in
Lakeland on June 22.
The 15 participants in the
theatre arts camp, which ran
June 17-24, staged
Shakespeare's "Romeo and
Juliet" in just five days. After
instruction in staging, voice,
and script analysis, aspiring
actors performed the play at
Southeastern's Bush Chapel.
The worship leaders
camp, which also ran June
17-24, provided training and
mentorship to 42 teens who
feel called to practice music
ministry. The week-long,
intense training sessions
included worship songwrit-
ing, tips on choir manage-
ment, and discussion about
the responsibilities of wor-
ship leading.
All Southeastern summer
camps occurred on
Southeastern's campus at
1000 Longfellow Blvd. in
Lakeland.

Beginning this fall, the
University of South Florida
Lakeland will offer the first
crime mapping and analysis
class in the USF system.
Professor Kim Lersch,
Ph.D., who will teach the
course, says it developed in
response to the needs of stu-
dents.
"The advent of desktop
computers and easy-to-use
geographic information sys-
tems has allowed crime
mapping and analysis to
flourish within law enforce-
ment agencies," Lersch said.
"Mapping technology has
been around since the
1980s, but only recently has
it become more affordable
and more user-friendly."
Crime mapping helps
explain patterns of incarcer-
ation and recidivism, helps
target resources and evalu-
ate crime prevention or
crime reduction programs,
and furthers the under-
standing of causes of crime.
Using crime mapping tech-
nology, analysts can better
understand where crime
occurs and devise strategies
to target resources, and for-
mulate strategies to fight
crime.
The crime mapping and
analysis class is part of USF
Lakeland's new online pro-
gram that offers a bachelor


of science in applied science
degree with a concentration
in criminal justice.
"We think students, many
of whom will be working law
enforcement officers, will
appreciate the convenience
of online learning as they
prepare for future opportu-
nities," Lersch said. "My goal
is to help them better under-
stand and use crime map-
ping and analysis, which in
turn gives them another skill
for career advancement."
Local law enforcement
officials have responded
positively.
"I'm excited to see this
class being offered at USF
Lakeland," Sheriff Grady
Judd said. "By using cutting
edge technology, such as
crime mapping analysis, the
Polk County Sheriff's Office
has been able to successfully
fight crime. Having this class
taught online emphasizes
the importance of our com-
munity's commitment to
keeping law enforcement
personnel well trained and
using the most sophisticated
tools available."
To prepare to teach this
new course offering, Lersch,
recently promoted to full
professor, is taking a geo-
graphic information system
class in the geography
department at USF's Tampa

Assistant Polk Tax Collector Plans Retirement Attorney Jarret Honored


By MARTHA ROE BURKE
Director of Compliance and Taxpayer
Affairs

After 35 years at the Polk County Tax
Collector's Office, Assistant Tax Collector
Jack Fouts will be retiring next month.
Fouts, who has been a fixture in the
Bartow tax office since 1972 and a recog-
nized leader in Florida real estate tax, is
leaving not just with the satisfaction of a
rewarding career, but with a record of
service never before matched in the State
of Florida.
During his years in tax collection,
Fouts has been tapped three times: twice
by then Governor Lawton Chiles to be tax
collector in two different counties and
once by the Florida Tax Collectors
Association to fill a leadership position
assisting a new tax collector.
In each instance, Fouts found himself
stepping into a role where rebuilding
trust and integrity were paramount to
the task required. Luckily those qualities,
along with a dry wit and quick thinking
are what best describes Jack Fouts.
Gail Jones was assistant tax collector
in 1993 in Glades County when the tax
collector there was removed from office
under a cloud of suspicion for embezzle-
ment, ultimately being charged with 84
counts of grand theft. Governor Chiles
asked Fouts to serve as the interim Tax
Collector until a replacement could be
appointed. "He came in totally blind, not
sure who he could trust," according to
Jones. "He was a tremendous help bring-
ing qs up to date on what we needed to
know. And, he didn't stop helping us
when he left," citing numerous times
that she, now Tax Collector for Glades
County, has turned to him for guidance
and advice.
Jack Fouts first started working at the
tax office as a 20 year-old front line clerk
while he was a sophomore in college at
Polk Community College in Winter
Haven. Hailing from Kathleen High
School's Class of 1970, Fouts remembers
those days. "At that time, we were still
maintaining records using six-inch thick,
25-pound ledger books and everyone's
job description included being capable
of carrying these large ledgers around."
Fouts rose through the ranks over the
years, becoming a senior clerk, 'then
manager of the tax department within
four years, ultimately going on to
become the assistant tax collector under
Hobson Strain in 1983. Strain retired in
1994 and Governor Chiles appointed
Jack Fouts to complete his unexpired
two-year term. Once again, Jack Fouts
steadied the ship. Fouts was 43.
As a result, Fouts has made tax collec-
tor history, becoming the only person to
ever serve in the top slot for two different
counties. According to state records, no
tax collector has ever served more than
one county before.
Just last year, Fouts was again asked to
step in and help out another county
when Nassau County Tax Collector
Gwendolyn Miller became too ill to serve
out her term. Fouts consulted with the
Nassau County Tax Collector's Office over
a period of time, assisting newly-
appointed John Drew who was named to
the top post. Drew is indebted to Jack
Fouts, he says. "Jack came up and by the
second day we were filing tangible war-
rants for the first time in Nassau County.
One week later he ran our tax certificate
auction. He single-handedly saved
Nassau County's certificate sale."
Ray Valdes, tax collector for Seminole
County, shared many stories of Fouts
through the years they served together,
"In my opinion, Jack Fouts is, and has
been one of the three top assistant coun-
ty tax collectors in the state of Florida for
at least the past 10 to 15 years," Valdes
said. "No other assistant tax collector in
the known history of the State of Florida
has ever been asked by a governor to
become the appointed tax collector in
two different counties. Jack did it not
once, but twice with distinction."
For the past 10 years, Fouts has
assumed the role of assistant tax collec-
tor under Joe G. Tedder, who ran for tax
collector in 1996 when Fouts decided not
to run for office. Fouts admitted then, "I
loved the job of tax collector, but I found
that I did not enjoy the obligations that
went along with being an elected offi-
cial."
Tedder valued the experience Fouts
brought to the office, and asked him to
stay on staff. When he stepped down


from his appointment, Fouts told the
employees, "I never got a single word of
bad press, and I attribute that to you, the
staff, who represents the office with
every person that you come in contact
with. It is because of you and the out-
standing work that you do and are
doing." For 35 years, Fouts has engen-
dered that level of caring and concern for
his co-workers. Fouts' leaving has his co-
workers calling it "the end of an era."
In an article written in 1993, Fouts
referred to himself as an "average' guy."
But Fouts is hardly average. Randy Hunt,
chief deputy of administration worked.
with him since the early '90s and he says
that Fouts's leadership style is "anything
but average. "Jack did much to modern-
ize our offices. Jack's brief tenure as tax
collector brought several innovations to
the tax office and ushered in a new era in
customer service."
Susan Holland worked for 35 years
with Fouts in the property tax depart-
ment. She recalls that right after he
became the assistant tax collector, he
purchased the office's first high-speed
mail processor.
"This- eliminated the manual posting
of tax payments, and really streamlined
the way we processed the mail. That was
just the beginning of automation."
Guy Carlton, tax collector for Collier
County, remembers meeting Jack back in
the '80s, comparing software companies
and working on automating property tax
collection. Up until that time, transac-
tions were handled manually. Under
Fouts's leadership, Polk became the first
county in the state to adopt a property
tax software program.
Established around the same time was
the "MIS" information technology
department for the tax office, which
Fouts spearheaded. Sabra Seay, director
of branch operations has worked for 32
years with Fouts. She remembers, "Polk
was behind in technology at that time.
When we first implemented the new tax
software, Jack personally oversaw the
transition, spending nights and week-
ends that first tax season, making sure
that everything interfaced properly."
During his leadership, Fouts also pro-
vided drop boxes at the branch offices for
more convenient walk-in payments and
instituted "comment cards" in every
office so that he could get regular cus-
tomer feedback from the walk-in cus-
tomers around the county.
Most recently, Fouts was given the
task of overseeing the modernization of
the property tax certificate sale held
annually in May. From a two-week long
live auction which old-timers felt more
closely resembled "a shouting match
where the loudest voice won the bid," the
process now takes less than two days.
Now it is a task subcontracted to an
online auction company which conducts
the Internet-based "eBay-style" bidding
process. Fouts personally ran the live
auction for more than 30 years as the
auctioneer. Polk has conducted its cer-
tificate sale online for the past three
years and is one of the counties leading
the state in this innovation.
Fouts made one lasting change within
the last few months of his tenure as tax
collector says Seay. "Before Joe Tedder
was installed, Jack made sure that he for-
malized "Casual Friday Dress" in the
employee policy manual for the staff.
"Jack is so laid
back; he enjoyed I -I
that as much as the B AI
staff!"
Most who know C[
Fouts admit he is a
shrewd prankster
and a quick wit.
Colleagues who |M
have worked with Kodiak CHI
him over the years
are easily able to
recount their
favorite "Jack I4
Pouts" story. Such
as the time he had
to remove a boa
constrictor from
the Bartow lobby,
which rode in on .*S' 11

"He had to summon up his best cus-
tomer service, and calmly ask the lady to
remove the snake from the premises."
"That is just like Jack," shared Rowell.
"He relates so well to the public and the
employees. He has always been available
and approachable, no matter what
comes up."
Margaret Bolden, a senior clerk within
the property tax department describes
Jack as "the quiet authority figure."
SJones agrees. "His leadership style is
conducive to problem-solving. Anybody
could bring him a problem and instead
of getting excited, he'd rationalize how to
solve the issue."
Pouts has been community leader in
various civic responsibilities over the
years. Past chairman of the board of
Imperial Polk Credit Union, he has been
actively involved since 1991. Fouts ush-
ers at his church most Sunday mornings,
unless he is down in Gasparilla, wetting a
hook out on his boat, or enjoying out-
door activities with Jennie (formerly
Jennie Bouton of Lakeland), his wife of 34
years and their 20-year-old daughter
Lauren.
A public reception honoring Jack
Fouts's 35 years of service will be held on
today, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. at the Polk
County Tax Collector's Office in Bartow.

Sunbelt Introduces New


Stabilized Wood Product


From Sunbelt
Forest Products

Sinbelt Forest Products of
Bartow has introduced Ecolife, a
stabilized wood containing a new
generation non-metallic, car-
bon-based preservative plus
wood stabilizing polymer sys-
tem.
Sunbelt is the first wood
treater in the United States to
launch this technology advance-
ment to the general construction
market.
Ecolife offers consumers the
natural beauty of real wood com-
bined with advancements in
weathering protection, fastener
performance and environmental
attributes. Ecolife treated wood is
available in Florida beginning in
July.
"Ecolife's preservative plus
wood stabilizer technology sig-
nificantly improves the weather-
ing performance of preserved
wood, while providing reliable
protection against decay and ter-
mites," says Carl Holland, presi-
dent of Sunbelt Forest Products.
"This improved performance
means reduced checking, crack-
ing, cupping and warping, as well
as less overall maintenance for
home owners."


"We know consumers love real
wood, but concern about weath-
ering and the need for extensive
maintenance made some people
shy away from using it in their
decks and other outdoor struc-
tures," said Don Hayes, Sun Belt's
sales manager. "Ecolife's stabiliz-
er treatment will allow those cus-
tomers to enjoy the beauty of real
wood again."
Results from accelerated
weathering tests simulating two
years of Florida weathering show
that the stabilizer in Ecolife
reduces cracking and splitting by
approximately 90 percent com-
pared to traditional treated
wood, according to the compa-
ny's announcement.
In addition to its superior
weathering performance,
Ecolife's non-metallic preserva-
tive plus polymer stabilizer treat-
ment also provides improved fas-
tener performance with a wide
range of fastener systems and is
no more corrosive to fasteners
and fittings than untreated
wood, the company said.
Ecolife is also non-corrosive to.
aluminum and can be used in
direct contact with aluminum
building products.
Ecolife treated wood is
described in ICC-ES ESR report


2067 as meeting all major model
building code requirements and
can be used for any interior or
exterior above ground applica-
tion where performance against
the effects of weathering, decay
and termite attack is required.
Applications include decking,
railings, fencing, steps, gazebos,
outdoor furniture, playground
equipment, docks and piers, trel-
lis and lattice work, structural
framing, outdoor joist supports,
wood siding and wood trim.
Ecolife products will be com-
petitively priced compared with
other treated wood products,
and are "significantly less expen-
sive" than plastic and wood/plas-
tic composite materials, the
company said.
"Ecolife will offer my cus-
tomers a choice in decking mate-
rials that offers better weathering
and less maintenance at a lower
price compared to expensive
plastic composite products,"
Hayes said. "Real wood is back."
Ecolife is available at local
lumberyards and wood distribu-
tors in Florida. For more infor-
mation about Ecolife, visit

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE VARI-
ANCE
The Department of Environmental
Protection (Department) gives notice of its
intent to issue a variance (File No.
0131819-009-EV-VR) to Mosaic Fertilizer,
LLC, (Mosaic), Post Office Box 2000,
Mulberry, Florida 33860-1100, under para-
graphs 378.212(1)(a), Florida Statutes
F.S), from the provisions of Rule 62C-
16.0032(2)(a), Florida Administrative
Code, (F.A.C.), On June 21, 2007, Mosaic
Fertilizer, LLC, (Mosaic) petitioned the
Department for a variance to Rule 62C-
16.0032(2)(a), Florida Administrative
Code from Mosaic Fertilizer, LLC. The
variance is from the requirement for a
mine operator to file a Conceptual
Reclamation Plan Application with the
Department of Environmental Protection
within seven days of the submittal of an
Application for Development Approval
(ADA) under Chapter 380, F.S. This peti-
tion is associated with the submission of
the Mosaic Hookers Prairie Mine
Conceptual Reclamation Plan
Modification. Mosaic is currently working,
on a Conceptual Reclamation Plan (CRP)
Modification Application required by
Specific Condition 20 of the Wetland
Resource Permit No. 01311819-006 to be
submitted by October 9, 2007.
Therefore, the Department intends to
Issue a variance pursuant to paragraph
378.212(1)(a), F.S., from the provisions of
rule 62C-16.0032(2)(a), F.A.C. The term of
variance will be until October 9, 2007,
unless a later date is approved in writing
by the Department.
The Department's file on this matter is
available for public inspection during nor-
mal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal
holidays, at the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mine
Reclamation, 2051 East Dirac Drive,
Tallahassee, Florida 32310-3760,
Telephone: (850) 488-8217.
Under this intent to issue, this variance
is hereby granted subject to the appli-
cant's compliance with any requirement in
this intent to publish notice of this intent in
a newspaper of general circulation and to
provide proof of such publication in accor-
dance with section 50.051 of the Florida
Statutes. This action is final and effective
on the date filed with the Clerk of the
Department unless a sufficient petition for
an administrative hearing is timely filed
under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes as provided below. If a
sufficient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed, this intent to issue
automatically becomes only proposed
agency action on the application, subject
to the result of the administrative review
process. Therefore, on the filing of a time-
ly and sufficient petition, this action will not
be final and effective until further order of
the Department. When proof of publication
is provided, if required by this intent, and if
sufficient petition is not timely filed, the
variance will be issued as a ministerial
action. Because of administrative hearing
may result in the reversal or substantial
modification of this action, the applicant is
advised not to commence construction or
other activities until the deadlines noted
below for filing a petition for an administra-
tive hearing or request for an extension of
time have expired and until the variance
has been executed and delivered.
Mediation is not available.
A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's action
may petition for an administrative pro-
ceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received by
the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4) of the Florida
Administrative Code, a person whose sub-
stantial interest are affected by the
Department's action may also request an
extension of time to file a petition for an
administrative hearing. The Department
may, for good cause shown, grant the
request for an extension of time. Requests
for extension of time must be filed with the
Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable
deadline. A timely request for extension of
time shall toll the running of the period for
filing a petition until the request is acted
upon. If a request is filed late, the
Department may still grant it upon a
motion by the requesting party showing
that the failure to file a request for an
extension of time before the deadline was
the result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an
administrative hearing is filed, other per-
sons whose substantial interests will be
affected by the outcome of the administra-
tive process have the right to petition to
intervene in the proceeding. Intervention
will be permitted only at the discretion of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205
of the Florida Administrative Code.
In accordance with subsection
373.414(17), F.S. And section 403.201,
FS., petitions for the administrative hear-
ing by the applicant must be filed within 14
days of receipt of this written notice.
Petitions filed by any persons other than
the applicant, and other than those enti-
tled to written notice under section
120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes must be
filed within 14 days of publication of the
notice or within 14 days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first.
Under section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes, however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 14 days of
receipt of such 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 for an
administrative hearing within the appropri-
ate time period shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an adminis-
trative determination (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Department's action is
base must contain the following informa-
tion:


(a) The name and address of
each agency affected and each agency's
file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and tele-
phone number of the petitioner; the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, If any, which
shall be the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how the petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are or will be affected by
the agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the
petitioner received notice of the agency
decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so indicate;


(e) A concise statement of the ulti-
mate facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the agency's
action; '
(f) A statement of the specific rules or
statutes that the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by petitioner, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner wishes the
agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the
material facts upon which the
Department's action is based shall state
that no such facts are in dispute and oth-
erwise shall contain the same information
as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-
106.301 of the Florida Administrative
Code. Under paragraphs 120.569(2)(c)
and (d) of the Florida Statutes, a petition
for administrative hearing must be dis-
missed by the agency if the petition does
not substantially comply with the above
requirements or is untimely filed.
This intent to issue a variance consti-
tutes an order of the Department. Subject
to the provisions of paragraph
120.68(7)(a) of the Florida Statutes, which
may require a remand for an administra-
tive hearing, the applicant has the right to
seek judicial review of the order under
section 120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by
filing of a notice of appeal under rule 9.110
of the Florida Rules of Appellate
Procedure with the Clerk of the
Department in the Office of General
Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, 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 the order is filed with the
Clerk of the Department.

Sector Plan Approved


For Clear Springs Land


Bartow is the fifth and
for now, the last city in
Florida to approve an
"optional sector plan"
approach to land use plan-
ning.
Florida law authorized
five cities to use the optional
sector plan instead of the
development of regional
impact process on major
developments. Four cities
already are processing such
plans, Atty. Andrea Zelman
told the city commission.
The optional sector plan
will be used on the Clear
Springs Land Co. property-
18,069 acres two-thirds of
it located within the Bartow
city limits. The company is
discussing annexation of the
remainder of its property.


The Clear Springs parcel
begins at the south side of
Bartow Municipal Airport,
north of the city, and wraps
around the east and south
sides of Bartow, extending
west to County Road 555.
Major elements of the
Clear Springs plan are 11,108
homes on 2,710 acres, 2,003
acres of industrial develop-
ment, a 491-acre
research/corporate park,
and 210 acres of commercial
property.
Other uses are agricul-
ture, 4,292 acres; recreation
and open space, 2,806 acres;
wetlands, 2,413 acres; water,
1,281 acres;: a reservoir, 1,098
acres; and conservation, 217
acres.
Clear Springs Land Co.


has contributed $12 million
for a Polk Community
College corporate training
center.
The company projects
that the land will have a pop-
ulation of 27,992 people at
build-out in 2030.
The Clear Springs proper-
ty is mostly mined-over
phosphate land, the Clear
Springs Mine.
City commissioners
approved the optional sector
plan after a public hearing
Monday night.
The plan will go through
several more steps before it
can be implemented. Next is
forwarding to the Florida
Dept. of Community Affairs.


Polk Education Assn. and
the Polk County School
Board have reached a tenta-
tive agreement on salaries
for all three contracts that
govern teachers, paraeduca-
tors, and secretaries for the
2007-2008 school year.
Despite the unease over
changes in property taxes
and reduced sales tax rev-
enues, both PEA and the dis-
trict felt it important to settle
salaries for the fast-
approaching school year.
The tentative agreement
will be distributed to
employees for their approval
in August, upon their return
for the new school year.
The raises exceed cost of
living increases. In its strate-
gic plan, the school board
set a goal of moving toward
paying all employee groups
above the average, in recog-
nition of the need to attract
and retain highly-qualified
employees.
While they have reached a
settlement, much work
remains to be completed.
Both PEA and the board rec-
ognize the benefit of settling
early in the district's budget
process. Some of the addi-
tional challenges include
differentiated pay issues,
assessment, and other issues
which have been defined by
both PEA and the district.
This year's agreements
include:


Raises above the rate of
inflation for all three repre-
sented employee groups; all
employee groups were fund-
ed equally.
A 4.25 percent increase
in money for each salary
schedule. Paraeducators,
secretaries, and teachers will
all receive their "step" raise
on the salary schedule and
each step also has been
increased.
Continuing the health
insurance, coverage for cur-
rent employees with no
change, and recommending
the increased costs be paid
by the board.
"The district wishes to
increase the salaries of all of
our employees while ensur-
ing that we are fiscally


responsible with the funds
entrusted to us by the tax-
payers," said Jos6 Farinas,
director of employee rela-
tions.
"PEA is cognizant of the
financial concerns coming
out of Tallahassee and the
revenue shortfall being pre-
dicted," said Marianne
Capoziello, PEA president.
"We believe that competi-
tive salaries need to be the
priority and that 'the
employees we represent
need to know their financial
picture for the coming year
as soon as possible."
If the employees ratify tlhe
new salary schedule, they
could receive their raises as
early as their September
paychecks.

r MILY FEATURES
Pets can be great playmates and lots of fun,
but now more than ever, they are truly a
beloved member of the family, bringing joy
and unconditional companionship to our
lives..And just as moms and dads provide
the love, support and endless hugs we need to get
through any situation, so can our pets. Surprised? Well
don't be. Our furry friends may possess the power to
help heal with pet hugs.

Across the country, thousands of special therapy
pets bring smiles each and everyday to those in need
by simply offering them a pet hug. Research shows
that human interaction with pets can provide life-
enhancing physical and emotional benefits. In fact,
bringing pets into a nursing home or hospital can help
boost people's moods, enhance social interaction and
help lower blood pressure.
In an effort to promote the important role pets play
in people's lives, the Animal Rescue Foundation
(ARF) recently established the Pet Hug Fund, which
provides support to animal therapy teams nationwide.
"It is remarkable to see firsthand the healing power
animals possess," says Bianca La Russa of Tony La
Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation's Pet Hug Fund.
"We are focused on creating national programs like
the ARF Pet Hug Fund to further the pet therapy mis-
sion and help support local efforts."



Benefits of Pet Hugs
4 "P et therapy can help people dealing with
a1 range of life issues. Whether it's an
abused child, a patient overcoming
surgery or an elderly individual looking for
companionship, pets haxe tremendous heal-
ing powers that, in some cases, cannot be
matched by human interaction.
]n a UCLA study, researchers examined
how patients responded to visits from a
human and dog volunteer team, a human vol-
unteer only or no visit at all. The patients
receiving visits from the dog team showed
the most positive signs of improvement as
they had decreased anxiety scores and stress
levels. The study concluded that even short-
term exposure to dogs has physical and men-
tal benefits on patients who want to partici-
pate.
The UCLA research is one of many docu-
mented studies illustrating the power of pet
hugs. Here are some other examples of the
benefits of pet therapy:
Pets decrease feeling of loneliness and iso-
lation.
In a study of friendship bonds between
elderly people and their animals. 78 per-
cent of men and 67 percent of females said
that their dogs were their only friends.
In a study of children experiencing
divorce, 85 percent described their dogs as
a companion to whom they could tell their
problems, anger and rage

.INOUS'tftY POUNIULrH.W


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
For many people July 7,
2007, was considered a lucky
day. All across our country,
hundreds of young couples
selected this day to get mar-
ried.
It had something to do
with having three sevens in a
row. Everybody knows this is
the epitome of luck.
Actually, not everybody
knew this, because I did not
know it. It never occurred to
me that a combination of
certain numbers could in
fact give me luck.
Moreover, why the num-
ber seven is lucky is beyond
my imagination let alone,
three in a row. Why not four
in a row, or better yet, seven
in a row. That would make
more sense to me.
Obviously, the words
"luck" and "sense" should
not be used in the same sen-
tence.
If you have luck, you don't
need good common sense.
And the reverse is true, if you
have good common sense
what do you need with luck?
But for some reason,
many couples all across the
country believed July 7,
2007, was a lucky day to get
married. I have my suspi-
cions that this came from
the bride's side of the wed-
ding party and not the
groom's. Most grooms I
know count themselves
lucky to find someone who
will in fact marry them. And
then, every groom thinks it's
a lucky day when he gets
through his wedding day
without unduly embarrass-
ing his new in-laws.


I have officiated at many
weddings in my time. I must
admit there were some cou-
ples I felt could use all the
luck in the world.
Then there were, unfortu-
nately, those cotiples that no
amount of luck in the uni-
verse was going to help.
Despite vehement objec-
tions on my part, I could not
convince them to call the
whole thing off. They
thought they were in love
and that was all they needed
to get through life.
After all, love makes the
world go around, which may
be why so many people in
love are so dizzy.
In spite of this "Lucky
Day,"~ statistics tell us more
than half of these marriages
will end in divorce. And
believe me, divorce is no
lucky thing, unless you're a
divorce attorney, who just
may be behind this entire
"lucky-day-marriage" phe-
nomenon.
Marriages are not built on
luck, but on love and lots
and lots of hard work. More
of the latter than the former,
I assure you.
As I was reading all of this
nonsense about "lucky-day-
marriages," I turned to the
Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage and asked her
about this.
"Do you think our wed-
ding day was your lucky
day?"
Some days I regret my
mother ever taught me how
to speak. The problem with
my mother was, she taught
me how to speak, but never
taught me what to say.
I believe this is a woman's


conspiracy against men.
Mothers should teach their
sons what to say and what
not to say to their wives.
My question to my wife
was a rather innocent thing,
so I thought. I will not say
she threw me a sarcastic
look. She did, I just refuse to
say it in public on grounds it
will incriminate me. A hus-
band can stand only so
much incrimination in life.
After this alleged sarcastic
look my way, she simply
said, "Ha!"
I'm not sure she thought I
was making a joke or not,
but being the astute hus-
band that I am, I pursued
the thought no further.
This is what makes mar-
riages great mystery. Our
marriage has enough mys-
tery in it, to keep Agatha
Christie busy for a hundred
years writing novels.
Luck is a very curious
thing. I'm not at all sure how
to define it, but I count it a
lucky day when I don't spill
ketchup on my tie when eat-
ing at a restaurant.
Counting on luck really
doesn't add up. Luck comes
in only two categories. Good
luck and bad luck.
This reminds me of .the
old Hee Haw song that said,
"If it weren't for bad luck, I'd
have no luck at all." Much of
the luck in my life has all
been bad.
When I was younger, I had
a lucky shirt. I wore it to
every ball game I played in
and it always brought me
good luck; I never died in
any game. Since getting
married, my luck has
changed. I have not seen


that shirt in 30 years. I'm not
blaming my wife, but I did
not throw it out.
How I made it through life
all these years without my
"lucky shirt," I do not know.
More than once my wife has
suggested I no longer need
that "lucky shirt," because
she is my "lucky charm." I'm
in no position to argue.
I like what the Bible has to
say on these lines.
"For we have not followed
cunningly devised fables,
when we made known unto
you the power and coming
of our Lord Jesus Christ, but
were eyewitnesses of his
majesty. For he received
from God the Father honour
and glory, when there came
such a voice to him from the
excellent glory, This is my
beloved Son, in whom I am
well pleased," 2 Peter 1:16-17
KJV.
Counting on luck is about
as futile as counting sheep at
night. When you get up in
the morning, the sheep are
gone and that is the way it is
with luck.
What I count on is Jesus
Christ. Counting on him has
multiplied blessings in my
life.

Music is the universal language. Although the
styles of music and dance vary widely from
one culture and generation to the next, we all
understand the language of music and can
intuitively sense whether the music is happy
or sad, or whether it is conveying any of a
whole host of possible emotions. In fact
sometimes music seems better able than
words to convey what we are really feeling.
Words are feeble symbols and mere
abstractions, whereas music often seems to
more directly express our true thoughts and
feelings. How fitting that many of the Psalms
tells us to praise God with music and dancing:
"Let them praise his name with dancing,
making melody to him with timbrel and lyre!"
(Psalm 149:3) There are times when we just
cannot contain ourselves, and the cosmic
music that is all around us sings through us.
At those times, we almost feel as if we have to
sing or dance, and it is right and fitting to do
so.

Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with flute and harp! Praise
him with timbrel and dance praise
him with strings and pipe!
-R.S.V Psalm 150:3-4

It's summer, and time to
enjoy nature's bounty of
produce.
Up your serving of fruits
and veggies today with
delicious and fun recipes
we found at

Artichokes Stuffed with
Brown Rice
1/2 cup brown rice
4 large artichokes
1 teaspoon salt
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup grated
Parmesan cheese
Prepare brown rice
according to package
directions.
Meanwhile, prepare
artichokes. Snap off the
bracts (tough outer
leaves). Cut 1/2 inch off
the top and bottom of
each. Snip tips if desired.
In a saucepan, with a
steamer, bring two inches
of water with one tea-
spoon salt to a boil. Place
artichokes on steamer,
cover and cook for 20-25
minutes or until bottoms
are tender. Add water if
needed.
Carefully remove arti-
chokes and place upside
down on a plate. Drain.
Cool. Slice artichokes in
half lengthwise. Scrape out
the choke and some of the
inner leaves, creating a
cavity for rice. Squeeze
lemon juice over arti-
chokes.
Stuff the center of each
half with rice and sprinkle
with Parmesan cheese.
Place two artichoke
halves on each plate; serve
with melted butter if
desired.

Looking For A Good Home

SPCA Pets of the Week


Please meet BB.
Breed: American bulldog/boxer mix
Sex: Male/ Neuter
Age: 3-1/2 years
What he wants to tell you: I'm 3.5 years old and spent the last two
years outside all alone. My family didn't want to play with me, so I went
looking for another one. I'm very lovable and friendly and love to play, I just
need a chance with a family who will love me and train me. I'm good with
children, other dogs, too. I just don't want to be left outside all by myself.
Come visit with me.
Good news, All.pets that have been highlighted have been adopt-
ed except for Callie, so she's here again this week to give her an
"extra" boost.


Please meet Callie.
Breed: Domestic short-hair
Sex: Female, spayed
Age: 2 years
What she wants to tell you: Callie's my name and playtime is my game.
I was found wandering the streets and some nice people brought me to
the SPCA. Now I can really show off what a great kitty I am. I'm litter-
trained, toy-trained (I love toys), and I also like to talk to people as they
walk around. I love to be held and am dreaming of a time I can curl up in a
sunny spot safely in my own home. Living on the streets just isn't for me.
Give me a home, a lap; and I'll give you years of love.

Please come see us at the SPCA in Lakeland at 5850 Brannen Road
South Tuesday through Saturday from 11 to 5, or call 646-7722., or
visit www.lovemyspca.com. Adoption fees are $70 for dogs and $50 for
cats, and include spaying or neutering and shots.
