Youth Football Head Cnaiged With Grand Theft, Forgery


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Bartow Youth Football League's
'president has been charged with
"grand theft and forgery after an
investigation into his handling of
-the organization's finances.
Frankie Lee Webster of
Lakeland, who turned 60 on July
26, was investigated by the State
Attorney's Office after it was made
aware of the possibility that he
was stealing from the league.
He was arrested Thursday and
posted bond of $2,000 the same
day on the two third-degree
felony charges. He is alleged to
have stolen $4,263.40 since 2003.
According to the complaint
affidavit, Webster has been presi-
dent of Bartow Youth Football for
the past 15 years, but he has been
involved with the organization for
about 28 years, he told The
Democrat last year. At that time
he announced that Bartow Youth
Football was joining Mid Florida
Youth Football and Cheerleading
Federation.
In addition to serving as presi-
dent, Webster directly managed
the local organization's finances,
Investigator Stephen R. Menge
said in the affidavit. "After an
inspection of the financial


records for the Bartow Youth
Football League, it was discovered
that Webster has routinely used
organization funds for his per-
sonal use."
Between Jan. 25, 2003, and Jan.
6, 2007, Webster used checks from
the league's bank account to pay
for personal credit cards, home
mortgage payments, gas credit
cards, and cell phones, and wrote
checks to himself, Menge said.
The investigator obtained
records from Capital One which
showed that Webster made pay-
ments of $895, with 11 league
checks, on a credit card issued to
him. During an interview with
investigators, Webster said he had
used his credit card to make pur-
chases for the team, and that the
checks were reimbursements to
him.
"A review of the credit card
statement failed to show any
charges associated with the foot-
ball organization," the affidavit
said. Webster said there were no
receipts or invoices that identi-
fied any purchases for the league
using his personal credit cards.
Another Capital One card
account in Webster's name
showed a payment of $50 from
the football account.
Bank records for a Bank of


America Visa credit card in the
name of Frank L. Webster, Jr.,
show five checks from the Bartow
Youth Football account written
between October 2005 and
November 2006. Webster said that
was his personal credit card and
that he had made payments using
league checks, the affidavit says.
There was one charge made to
All American Sport on July 20,
2006, for $1,048.21. Webster said
"he paid himself back over time
through making payments to his
credit card and writing himself a
check for $500. In lieu of identify-
ing which checks were payback
and which were extra payments,
credit for the $1,048.21 was given
in the final total," according to the
affidavit. League checks to this
account totaled $950.
Bartow Youth Football made
four payments totaling $505 to
Alltel between February 2004 and
September 2006. Webster told the
investigator that he owns the
phone and made payments using
the league's account. He said that
he was "probably using it" for
league business.
Last August Webster wrote a
Bartow Youth Football League
check for $585 to Countrywide
Home Loans for his personal
mortgage, the investigation


revealed. Also last August, eight
checks were written to various
businesses identified by Webster
as personal accounts, Menge
wrote in the affidavit, as well as
one in August 2003. Webster said
these accounts were his personal
credit card, gas card and home
phone. These nine checks totaled
$620.96.
Over the four years from
January 2003 to January 2007, 18
checks were issued to Webster
from Bartow Youth Football for a
total of $3,305. Menge said the
checks "were either deposited
into Webster's personal account
or cashed. Many of the checks
issued had an indication on the
memo line as 'payback.' "
Webster told investigators that
he spends money out of his pock-
et for the league and reimburses
himself from the league account.
"Webster does not know how
much money he has issued to
himself, nor does he know how
much he has spent on the organi-
zation," the affidavit reads.
"Webster confirmed a lack of
accountability with the organiza-
tion's finances."
He also said that he mistakenly
used the organization's account
to pay his personal bills last
August. He then deposited a per-


sonal check for $1,600 to cover
the league checks. Another credit
was issued for the $1,048.21
charge, on his Bank of America
credit card.
During the June 26 interview,
Webster was asked for any
receipts he had to account for the
money removed from the
account. The only one he had was
for two credit card charges at All

BARTOW'S HISTORIC old cigar factory will be torn down. Polk commissioners
approved a motion Wednesday to demolish the building due to health and safety reasons.
"I know the Rotary tried to save the building," Commissioner Randy Wilkinson said. "I
know they did all they could." The building was used for storage, but became a health and
safety hazard in recent years. - (Staff photo by Dawn Wade)



City To Consider New


Electric Contract Tonight


Bartow city commission-
ers will consider adopting a
three-year electric power
contract tonight that would
mean an increase in the typ-
ical residential electric bill of
$6.15 to $6.40 per month.
The city's existing con-
tract with Progress Energy
(formerly Florida Power
Corp.) is expiring, and
Progress Energy has submit-
ted a new contract that calls
for a 6.85-percent increase


in the wholesale power rate.
That increase translates
into $6.15 to $6.40 per
month for a typical house-
hold using 1,200 to 1,250
kilowatt hours of electricity
per month.
The commission con-
vened at 3 o'clock this after-
noon to begin reviewing the
proposed city budget, and
will reconvene at 5:30 for its
regular work session, and at
6:30 for its business meeting.

Davis: Need for Beds, Finances

Led to BRMC OB Closure


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

In what became a heated
discussion for both the lack
of air conditioning and sub-
ject matter, Justin Davis,
administrator of Bartow
Regional Medical Center,
discussed the closure of the
obstetrics unit with the
Bartow Breakfast Rotary
Club this morning.
As the temperature
climbed in the packed
room, Davis attempted to
explain some of the reasons
for the closure, summing up
the decision as one of
needs.
"I cannot justify having
the resources (staff, beds
and equipment) to serve 24
people a month, while peo-
ple are forced to wait for
beds in growing service
lines," he said.
While he admitted the
decision was financially-
based in part, Davis said it
was not the only factor.
"Financial bottom line is
never the only decision," he
said. In May, Davis said the
hospital had become over-
populated for several days,
"and here are empty beds
on the OB unit."
Davis said since pur-
chase of the hospital,
Health Management
Associates, Inc., has made


an investment of more than
$10 million in capital
improvements, and suc-
cessfully recruited several
doctors to the hospital.
Of these recruitments,
Davis' said the hospital
approved the hiring of Dr.
Todd Bader, an ob/gyn and
placing him on staff.
This move is unusual, as
Davis explained most doc-
tors are not actual hospital
employees.
When Bader offered
notice, Davis said the deci-
sion was made to close the
department.
Davis said that BRMC
performs eight percent of
births in the market and
only 13 percent of births
from patients in Bartow and
one adjacent zip code.
This share, Davis said,
was not sufficient to allow
for continuation of services.
Rotarians and guests,
however, were unsatisfied at
the explanation, and more
than one wanted to know
why the decision to close
the department came so
quickly.
"The Florida Medical
Association said by closing
so quickly you are putting
the health of mothers and
babies in danger," Candy
Mercer, a leader of the resis-
tance against closure move-
ment, said.


Davis said the hospital
kept the department open
longer than required by the
state, and long enough to
allow the doctors to get cre-
dentialed with Lakeland
Regional Medical Center.
"I cannot speak to why
that has not happened," he
said.
Davis admitted that
holding a community
forum with the public to
explain the issues involved
would have been "a good
move," but was unable to
answer Mrs. Mercer's ques-
tion about why no one from
the hospital attended a
public community forum
following the announce-
ment.
He said he was on his
honeymoon at the time,
and could not speak for
other employees.
Davis said the communi-
ty advisory board did
approve the closure unani-
mously, but was unable to
discuss the makeup of the
board. When asked how
many board members lived
in Bartow, Davis said he was
unsure.
As for the future, Davis
said he did think there
would come a time that OB
services would return to
Bartow.


Developers who build in
the Community
Redevelopment Agency dis-
tricts in Lakeland, Winter
Haven, and Auburndale will
not have to pay impact fees
to the city or the county.
The Polk County com-
mission voted to exempt
projects in the three CRA
districts at the request of the
three communities. The
county had said it would
entertain exemption from
county impact fees if the
cities also would waive their
municipal impact fees.
County commissioners


approved each of the
exemptions after reviewing
the areas within the dis-
tricts, which generally are in
the core of the communi-
ties.
CRAs are, created to
encourage redevelopment
in liberally-defined "slum
and blight" areas. As prop-
erty taxes increase due to
upgrades of property, most
of the increased taxes go to
the CRA for infrastructure
improvements within the
districts, and not to the city
or county commissions.
Impact fees are assessed


to pay the cost of infrastruc-
ture improvements, such as
streets and water and sewer
system upgrades, that area
required to support new
developments.
In approving the exemp-
tions, county commission-
ers noted that in come
cases, such as when an old
office building is replaced
by a new one of similar size,
no impact fees are assessed,
because the impact on
infrastructure is not signifi-
cantly changed.

Tom Freeman Offering

Painting Classes in Lake Wales


Artist Tom Freeman will
offer his adult painting class
for six weeks beginning
Tuesday, Aug. 7, at the Lake
Wales Arts Center.
The classes will be held
from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday
evenings through Sept. 11.
The cost for the series of
classes is $80 for members of-
the Lake Wales Arts Council
and $85 for non-members.
To register call the Arts
Center at 676-8426.
Students will be learning
a new method of painting
using acrylic and watercolor.
The canvasses are the same
as for acrylic or oil, but have
been reformulated with
gesso on the canvas. The
canvasses are the same size
as traditional ones.
"This combination
should be a lot of fun,"
Freeman said. "The students
will enjoy it."
The old-English style of
watercolor works with the
acrylic for a new style.
Freeman plans to focus on
Florida landscape painting
using local venues.


The classes will be struc-
tured with leeway for artistic
license.
Space is limited; it is a
"first registered, first paid,
first guaranteed space" class,
Freeman said.
Freeman is a longtime
resident of the Lake Wales
area. He attended high
school in Frostproof before
he moved to Lake Wales. He
worked for 20 years at Lake
Wales High School, teaching
students and adult educa-
tion, as well as serving as an
assistant principal for 14
years.
As a teacher, he says, his
greatest joy is seeing his stu-
dents enthusiastic and hav-
ing fun with art. He believes
that art should be enjoyed.

Editorial


Everyone Benefits From Schools Energy Program


We remember our reaction to the
energy conservation firm's proposal
when it was outlined to the Polk
County School Board several years
ago:
If it sounds too good to be true, it
probably is.
That was, if memory serves, the
reaction of most who listened to the
pitch.
Most projections of massive sav-
ings tend to be exaggerated. And to
achieve that level of savings in a
school system with more than 100
campuses and scores of other build-
ings - buildings in which the occu-
pants had no personal monetary
incentive to conserve electricity -
seemed implausible at best.
Keep in mind that this was before
the "green initiative" that has gained
so much momentum in the past
year or so. Reducing consumption of


electricity was seen largely an eco-
nomic goal, not a victory for the
environment.
But - again relying 6n an imper-
fect memory - the proposal dame
with a money-back guarantee.
In a business as big as the Polk
County school system, even a mod-
est reduction in electric bills trans-
lated into significant bucks. The
school board bought the proposal.
Our skepticism was misplaced.
This year, for the third time in four
years, the Polk County school sys-
tem won the Energy Lighthouse
Award from Energy Education, Inc.
Consider the numbers:
* Polk County schools are spend-
ing 75 cents per square foot for elec-
tricity, the lowest number in the
state.
* Nearby counties - Osceola,
Orange, and Pinellas, where the cli-


mate is similar to Polk's - are
spending $1.43, $1.20, and $1.48,
respectively.
* The state average is $1.31 per
square foot.
* Since the county embarked on
the program in 1992, Polk has saved
an estimated $48.9 million.
* In those 15 years, the air condi-
tioned square footage in Polk's
schools has increased by 53.7 per-
cent, but energy consumption is up
by 21.4 percent. And water con-
sumption, though markedly less
expensive, is down 22 percent.
* The school system's efficiencies
have saved 407 million kilowatt
hours, which translates into a reduc-
tion of 679 million pounds of carbon
dioxide emissions, the equivalent of
taking 4,294 cars off the road, or
planting 1.8 million acres of trees.
The numbers speak volumes


about the success of the program,
and the school system's commit-
ment to energy savings.
If other businesses and Polk
County homeowners could achieve
comparable efficiencies, the savings
in both energy consumption and
electric bills would be mind-bog-
gling.
While the specific systems put in
place are proprietary, the concepts
presumably could be applied to
other buildings.
Taxpayers have been served well
by the school system's stewardship
of electric energy. They would be
served further if the school system
were to mount an initiative to
spread the concept throughout the
county.

Thanks for Police Alertness


BARTOW - This morn-
ing, Aug. 2, at approximately
4:15 a.m., a young police offi-
cer with the Bartow Police
Department pulled . along
side me in his patrol car on
Stuart Street. I was on the last
leg of my morning stroll
around town and within
about two blocks of my
home.
He was very polite and
professional as he inquired as
to my reason for being out
and about, saying, "Good
morning. Are you out getting
your exercise?" I told him I
was and thanked him for
inquiring.
I am sure he was interest-
ed not only in my health and
well being but also that of the
surrounding neighborhood.
These and what other reasons,
he had for his inquiry were,


I'm sure, very much within
his line of duty and responsi-
bility.
I'm sure few people are so
fascinated with the wonders
of a new, God-created day as
to get up that early for no
other reason. The world is
just so perfect at that time.
The parts of Bartow that I
survey while walking early
each morning are the best it
has to offer. It is a wonderful
experience and very benefi-
cial to my health, according
to my good friend Dr. Robert
Bala. There is definitely less
opportunity to get struck by a
speeding vehicle transport-
ing someone who should
have left for work a good 15
minutes earlier.
What I wish to say is
thanks to the kind officer
who stopped to check on me.


Thanks for the hours you
spend being attentive to what
goes on around our town.
Bartow is a town where
the citizens can get out and
enjoy life at whatever hour
they wish with a sense of rel-
ative security.
This young man repre-
sents a fine group of our citi-
zens. They are all the mem-
bers of the Bartow Police
Department who are often
awake at odd hours and
doing a lot of tasks that are
not as pleasant or safe as just
stopping to check on a guy
walking through town.
Just know that you are
appreciated far more often
than we pause to say. God
bless and protect each one of
you.

The Fort Meade Leader
needs to be ashamed! How
dare you publish and label a
person as a "drug dealer."
Whatever happened to inno-
cent until proven guilty.
Please publish this.
The petty amount of
drugs found at the Flagg res-
idence were not even
enough to consider Mr.
Flagg a "drug dealer." There
are bigger fish to fry than
Julian in Fort Meade.
There are worse things
going on in that city than
drug sales and we all know


that. I promise you! To me
the entire point of your story
was to convict him before
he's even tried!
Shame shame shame on
you! While all the blame
can't be taken from him
don't convict him before he's
even tried! The police there
wants to pick on the small
fish and let the big fish go
untouched.,
We all know the homes
reported in your ledger
aren't the only "drug dealing
homes" in Fort Meade as you
have labeled them. Shame


shame shame on you! Please
publish this!

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

Dear Pen Pah Don't Tell Anybody


Every now and then even
the best managed pharmacy
runs out of its inventory of
smart pills.
Most of us can go a day or
two without going into
withdrawal.
But there are a few souls
out there who really ought
not to miss even one day's
dosage.
Among this latter group, I
fear, is a Pulitzer Prize win-
ner in Tallahassee, an
English professor at Florida
State University.
Although recognized for
his works of fiction, Robert
Olen Butler achieved instant
notoriety last week for his
"highly personal e-mail" to
a few close friends, saying
that his wife had left him for
Ted Turner.
He told the Associated
Press that he sent his mis-
sive to "a small circle of
graduate students and fac-
ulty members." Presumably
he believed them to be of
sufficient maturity to han-
dle his distressing
announcement. In this, per-
haps, he was correct.
He also apparently
believed them to be suffi-
ciently discreet not to
spread his secret around.
And in this, demonstrably,


he was in error.
"Put down your cup of
coffee," he wrote. "Elizabeth
is leaving me for Ted
Turner."
Yes, that Ted Turner.
They're neighbors.
Somebody ratted him
out, and his letter ended up
on a New York-based
Website called Gawker, and
soon spread to main-stream
media, of whom none is
mainer or streamier than
the AP
For anyone without a
scorecard, the AP tells us
that Turner is 69, Butler is
62, and Used-To-Be-Mrs.
Butler is 44.
Apparently both the
Butlers missed their dose of
smart pills.
His ex-as-of-last-
Monday-wife encouraged
him to send the e-mail to
friends "to thwart potential
rumors," he said.
He further told the AP
that he "wished her the
best" and that they "remain
the best of friends and are in
daily contact." I've got a lot
of married friends whose
spouses haven't left them
for anything or anybody
who couldn't say that.
Exactly what "potential
rumors" the happily


divorced couple expected to
head off is not clear. Maybe
they didn't want their
friends to think that
Elizabeth left Robert for a
poor man.
For his part, Turner,
through a spokesman, said
nothing. That's better judg-
ment than I'd expect from
somebody who married
Hanoi Jane.
The irate Professor Butler
charged that his tell-all mes-
sage "was a stolen e-mail by
someone in the New York
publishing world" and said
that "it's nobody's fault but
the prurience of our pop
culture."
Now I've got it. Nobody
did anything stupid; we're
all to blame for this episode
because of our rampant
prurient curiosity.
Emily Gould, an editor
for the Gawker site, said
nobody stole the e-mail.
"I think it's a cautionary
tale for all of us" because it
shows that e-mail "lends
itself to impulsive decisions,
which is what makes it so
dangerous," she said.
Well, at least one person
in this little drama took a
smart pill.


ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS


A Writing Career


Reading S.L.'s recent col-
umn in the paper really took
me back - to 1944.
I was getting ready to
graduate from. Summerlin
Institute (the real name of
the high school in Bartow).
S. L. was relaxing in his
crib looking cute and mak-
ing indistinguishable
remarks. I was 17 and he was
three years old., I was his
occasional babysitter. I am
now 80. Where does the time
go?
I am still writing a column
now and then, although I
used to write one for the
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Sunday Magazine. That one
folded, but it wasn't my fault.
I have a hard time realiz-
ing that I am 80 years old. I
remember when I thought
that 80 was the same as hav-
ing one foot in the grave and
the other on a banana peel.
That is an old joke.


When I was a senior at
Summerlin Institute during
World War II, they had work
day at the school and as I
recall, all of the seniors were
supposed to get a job for a
day and donate the proceeds
to some worthy cause. We
were to get a job doing
something we thought
might turn into a career.
I knew what I wanted to
do. I didn't waste any time
rushing over to The Polk
County Democrat in the yel-
low brick building that used
to house the Polk County
Record and asking Mr. Loyal
Frisbie, the editor, if I could
work for them for the day.
I was tickled to death that
he said "Yes."
That Was one noisy place.
Type was set on a Linotype
machine, and printed on an
eight-page press that made
more noise than a flat bed
truck that my grandfather


Begins

owned that had to be
cranked by hand.
I didn't really think that
they would let me actually
write something for the
paper and they didn't. Mr.
Frisbie put me to work wrap-
ping a print job for some
customer. The 100 pages
had to be wrapped just so in
brown paper, tied with white
string and look neat.
I don't remember how
many packages I wrapped or
how much I was paid, but it
was my first job at a newspa-
per. I knew that it would not
be my last.
I have been writing ever
since.
S. L. has grown up,
become a real newspaper
editor, a married man and a
father. I am right proud of
him; he turned out pretty
good.
Keep up the good work,
S.L.

Domestic violence is a
devastating social issue that
affects one in four women
and impacts the lives of
many more.
Traveling across the state,
a makeshift clothesline has
become a tool in preventing
and educating people about
the tragedy.
"Verizon . Wireless
Clothesline Project," will
arrive at the Bartow Public
Library during the first week
of August, and will be dis-
played in the lobby.


Designed to look like a
clothesline, the exhibit is a
moving acknowledgment of
how domestic violence
affects a family.
The exhibit displays
brightly decorated T-shirts
that communicate an array
of messages. Some are
poignant and personal sto-
ries, ranging from hopeful to
chilling.
A special event welcom-
ing the exhibit will be held at
10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug.

Hound Heaven

Dog F
Does your family own a dog? About
one in every three households owns at
least one dog, according to the U.S.
Census Bureau.
Where does your dog get to play?
Lucky dogs get to run in a backyard.
But for big dogs, a backyard may not
be enough space. Dogs that live in big
cities may not even have a backyard.
Dog lovers have found a way to let
their pets play. They are building spe-
cial dog parks across the country.
What is a dog park?
A dog park is a public place set
aside for dogs to run and play while
off their leashes. It is also a place
where humans can enjoy a parklike
setting with other people and dogs.
Most communities today have leash
laws, and dogs are not allowed to run
free in the neighborhood. Dog parks
offer a safe, open place for dogs to be
off-leash.
Dog parks are often fenced-in parts
of people parks where dogs can
explore bugs, wild animals, grasses,
trees and water,- and where they can
play with other dogs.


Many dog parks offer a stream or lake for
dogs to play in. Some even border the ocean.


'arks! Bow WOW!


Benefits for all
Experts say dog parks are great for
dogs and people, too. Some of the ben-
efits include:
* Dogs can exercise safely. Dogs
need room to run. In cities, traffic can
be a danger to dogs. Dog parks give
them enough space to run without
having to dodge cars.
* Dogs can play with other dogs.
Experts say dogs are not usually
aggressive in dog parks. This may sur-
prise people who see their dogs bark-
ing and growling at other dogs at
home.
But in the dog park, dogs usually
realize they don't own that space.
Whenever they are in it, there are
other dogs. They don't have to defend
their territory there.


These dogs
are meeting
at a dog park.
Dogs learn to
play nicely
with other
dogs, while
their human
companions
get a chance
to visit with
other pet
owners.


* Dogs can run free without bother-
ing people who are using the rest of
the park for other things, such as jog-
ging or biking.
* Dogs are healthier. Exercise is
good for dogs as well as people. If a dog
is allowed to run freely, it will stay fit.
* Dog owners can socialize. It can
be easier to start talking with
strangers in a dog park, because
everyone there shares some interests.
Experts say talking about dogs can
break the ice.
1* Dogs who go to dog parks are
often better behaved. Healthy, happy
dogs don't bark as much at home.
They aren't as bored, so they aren't as
likely to destroy property back home.

More
Doggie do's and don't
It is important that dogs and humans be
good citizens when using a dog park. Here
are some things to be aware of:
* Remember, a dog park is the dog's
playground. It is not a playground for chil-
dren. Children probably have their own
playground
in a different
part of the
park.
Kids need
to learn how
to act in a
dog park.
Many dogs
are not used to being around people who
are loud and energetic. If kids are running
around and making lots of noise, dogs
could be scared.
Dogs may not know they have to play
differently with small children than with
dogs. They may chase a running child or
jump up on a child, just as they would
with another dog. This could scare the
child, even though the dog is just playing.
* If you see a dog coming toward you,
stand still with your hands at your sides.
Be calm.


I-- . I ]ITT - I
Most parks have rules to protect dogs
and people.

Many dog parks do not allow
children at all. When children are
allowed, they should always be with
an adult.
* Never touch a strange dog
without the owner's permission.
* Do not feed someone else's dog.
Even dog treats might be bad for
some dogs. Also, the dog could acci-
dentally nip at kids' fingers when
getting the treat.


These dogs are having fun chasing each i
other around an adult's legs, but a small I
child could get knocked over or scared
by running dogs.

Working for dogs
Dog parks are usually created by
teams of dog lovers. They may have
to work with local government offi-
cials for a long time to get public
land set aside for a dog park.
Some of the things to keep in
mind when planning a dog park are:
* Flat spaces are better than
areas with
steep hills.
This is safer
because
steep slopes
may wear
away, or


a Doq Park


These dogs and
owners exercise in
a dog run at
Marymoor. A dog
run is a fenced-in
place within a
park where dogs
can run off-leash.
They may be built
within people
parks, or they may
be part of a bigger
dog park.

Volunteers from
Serve Our Dog
Areas, or S.O.D.A.,
work to maintain
Marymoor, a dog
park outside of
Seattle. Every year
b volunteers resurface
the trails in the dog
park, adding wood
chips and other
materials. Many
kids' groups such as
4-H and Boy and Girl
Scouts volunteer at
the dog park as well.




* Dog runs should be covered with
a good surface, such as gravel or
wood chips along with grass. Grass
alone can quickly be trampled by
running dogs, and then the dog run
becomes bare earth. This is especial-
ly difficult when it rains and the dirt
turns to mud.
* Don't build dog
parks in fragile areas
of nature or in the habi-
tats of endangered
species.

Sports America.
Other board members
told Menge that Bartow
Youth Football is a non-
profit organization in which
members volunteer their
time and efforts. No board
members are paid or
"authorized to reimburse
expenses such as personal
bills."
With $6,911.61 in checks
written either to Webster or
to his personal accounts,
minus the $2,648.21 that he
reimbursed to the Bartow
Youth Football account, a
total of $4,263.40 was taken
by Webster, who "did know-
ingly obtain money belong-
ing to the Bartow Youth
Football organization with
the intent to permanently
deprive the organization
any benefit of it," according
to the affidavit. That result-
ed in the grand theft charge.


August 6, 2007


Webster also was
charged with uttering a
forgery to the state of
Florida for filing false char-
ters for Bartow Youth
Football for 2004 through
2006.
He identified Tally Hall as
the organization's treasurer
and Donald Stratton as
director. According to the
affidavit Hall was part of the
league in the 1990s, but left
in 1999, leaving Webster the
only person in control of the
finances. "This enabled
Webster to, issue himself
unauthorized checks," the
affidavit says.
Stratton also participated
in the league in the '90s,
leaving in 1995. Neither he
nor Hall have been active in
the organization since,
according to the affidavit.
Webster submitted the
charters "knowing the said
documents to be false with
the intent to defraud."


Commissioners Discuss

Credit For Precisionaire


Less than a month after
an arson-related fire tore
through Precisionaire's air-
conditioning filter plant in
Bartow, Polk Commissioner
Randy Wilkinson asked
commissioners to consider a
credit on impact fees should
the plant be rebuilt at its
past location.
Wilkinson said the fire
had caused job losses to the
West Bartow area, and was
particularly devastating
since many of the employees
lived in the immediate area
and walked to work.
"I just wanted the board
to consider what we could
do for them," he said.
Since closing, the plant
has set up a hotline for past
employees, held a job fair
and helped employees seek
unemployment.
Additionally, company
officials are being assisted by


Central Florida
Development Council to
find a new site, either tem-
porary or permanent, to get
the plant back into opera-
tion.
Commissioner Bob
English reminded Wilkinson
that the company would be
eligible for a impact fee
credit upon rebuilding, since
the factory was destroyed.
Commissioners instruct-
ed staff to explore the issue
further.

Tax Relief To Cost Polk


$13.8 Million in Revenue


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher
Polk County government
will see a net decrease of
$13.8 million in revenues in
the year ahead, the result of
state-mandated tax relief.
For a homeowner whose
home is on the tax roll at a
value of $250,000, that will
equate to a reduction of $311
in the property tax bill for
homes within cities, or $337
for homes in unincorporat-
ed areas of the county.
Those projections were
presented to the county
commission by Fran
McAskill, director of the
county's office of financial
and strategic planning.
Her figures are on a house
on the tax roll at a value of
$250,000, with a homestead
tax reduction of $25,000, for
a taxable value of $225,000.
But tax bills for individual
taxpayers could increase, in
spite of the Legislative man-
'date for tax relief, if the value
of property goes up by more
than the nine-percent cut
ordered by the Legislature,
she said.
The tax relief affects the
tax millage rate, not the val-
uation of property on the tax
roll, she added.
Commissioner Jack Myers
said the Legislature should
have gone a step further and
ordered tax values reduced
to 2005 levels, noting that tax
values in Polk County rose
by 26 percent.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson agreed.
Ms. McAskill said that the
county could have faced a
$48.6 million reduction in
revenues, but that a 10 per-
cent increase in the value of
property on the tax roll
reduced the cut to $13.8 mil-
lion. The county is project-
ing a $7.2 million increase in
revenues from interest, the
public service tax, and other
sources.
The county already was


planning to cut taxes by one-
eighth of a mill, she said.
The county is required by
law to budget expenditures
at 95 percent of projected
revenues to cover any short-
fall, and this year, will expe-
rience a five percent short-
fall - $1 million - in sales
tax revenue.
The county will be facing
an additional reduction of
$2.4 million in the next bud-
get, Ms. McAskill told the
commission.
"The reality is that we will
provide property tax relief of
at least 1.5 mills and a reduc-
tion of $13.8 million in rev-
enue," County Mgr. Mike
Herr said.
The Legislature exempted
fire protection and emer-
gency medical service taxes
from the tax relief, but the
county will have to reduce
its new special tax unit taxes
for parks and for libraries,
Ms. McAskill said. That will
mean cutting $2.5 million
from those programs, she
said.
The parks tax will go from
.5 mill to .4219 mill, and the
library tax go from .25 mill to
.2109 mill. One mill equals
$1 for every $1,000 in taxable
property value.
Because the parks and
library taxes are impose only
on property in unincorpo-
rated areas, people who live
outside of cities will get
more tax relief. City resi-
dents are exempted from the
parks and library taxes
because their city taxes
already pay for those ser-
vices.
In January, voters will
determine the fate of an
amendment to the Florida
Constitution that would
mandate further tax relief,
including a doubling of the
$25,000 homestead exemp-
tion. That exemption is
allowed on homes that are
lived in by the owners, but
not to rental or commercial
property.


"I don't think $13.8 mil-
lion is going to cripple all of
our programs,"
Commissioner Sam Johnson
said.
He urged the commission
to use a one-time surplus of
$28 million to continue
keeping government ser-
vices and employment at the
current level.
Ms. McAskill recom-
mended using $4 million of
the surplus to keep current
programs in place, and the
balance of the surplus to pay
for one-time, non-recurring
programs.
Commissioner Jack Myers
said that if voters don't expe-
rience the results of tax cuts
before the January vote, "the
taxpayers won't feel any
pain" and will have no
incentive to vote against the
additional tax relief.
Commissioner Bob
English suggested using the
full surplus to maintain pre-
sent programs and levels of
service.

The University of South
Florida Lakeland's recently
completed Faculty and Staff
Campaign led the USF sys-
tem and broke three records
along the way.
According to USFL's
Office of University
Advancement, the Lakeland
campus had the highest par-
ticipation rate for any cam-
pus in the USF system and
set an all-time system record
for highest campus partici-
pation rate, with more than
94 percent of USFL faculty
and staff making donations
to the campaign.
The campaign also set
Lakeland records for partici-
pation rate and dollars
raised, with almost $37,000
in gifts pledged.
USFL's participation rate
more than doubled that of
the second-place USF cam-
pus.
The Faculty and Staff
Campaign is intended to
allow personnel throughout
the USF system to con-
tribute financially to the
mission of the University.
Participating personnel
on each campus designate
their gifts for a variety of
established funds in the USF
Foundation, ranging from
scholarships to research
support, special programs
and operating costs.
Faculty and staff cam-
paigns have long been typi-
cal on college and university
campuses, and one national
survey of almost 700 institu-
tions suggested an average
of about 20 percent of facul-
ty and staff support these
campaigns - putting USFL's
rate at nearly five times the


national average.
USFL's campus board
recently offered its unani-
mous approval of a new
strategic plan for the cam-
pus, establishing a polytech-
nic model that could dra-
matically transform higher
education in the region.
While developing programs
on its current campus,
shared with Polk
Community College in
Lakeland, the university is
also planning to open a new
campus on 1-4, at the north-
east edge of Lakeland.
The 2007 state legislative
session in Tallahassee ended
with what a USF spokesman
has termed "a temporary
setback" for public funding
for the Lakeland campus.
Against this backdrop, the
campaign results serve as a
dramatic barometer of the
mood on campus.
"We had high hopes for
the campaign this year, but
this level of participation is
truly phenomenal," said Dr.
Marshall Goodman, vice
president and CEO. "It sends
a clear message to those
who wondered about us fol-
lowing the recent veto. We're
clearly united and focused
on a bright future."
Each year's campaign is
chaired by volunteers from
the campus community.
This year's co-chairmen for
the Lakeland campus were
Dr. Alice Murray and Claire
Johnson. According to
,Goodman, "Those two set a
wonderful tone for the cam-
paign, and they challenged
all of us to step up to the
plate at a crucial time in our
history."


Summerlin Judo Returns Achievement Academy's Chip-in

From U.S. Open with Medals For Children Golf Tourney Set


Summerlin Judo placed
three athletes in the top five
at the recent Junior U.S.
Open Judo Championships
held July 28-29 in Fort
Lauderdale.
"Placing in this tourna-
ment is no easy task," said
Summerlin Coach Brian
Germain.
"There isn't a tougher
judo tournament in junior
judo than this one. There
were 500 competitors from
all across the Pan Am region
represented at this event."
Andrew Burris took a sil-
ver medal in the 15-16 years,
70+ kg division. Katie
Germain placed third in the
13-14 years, 48 kg division.
Eric Wortman earn a hard
fought fifth in the 13-14
years, 53 kg division.
"I was proud of how each
of . them competed,"
Germain said. "They all
showed some improvement
which I feel is most impor-
tant. As long as each kid is
getting better I try not to
worry to much about what


color medal they get."
Noah Hyde, Kelly
Germain, and Dallas Gobble
also competed. "Even if a kid
doesn't place, competing at
this level still teaches them a
lot and helps them gain
invaluable " experience,"
Germain said.
"They can take this expe-
rience and continue to build
on it for future events. Once
a kid has competed at this
level, it makes fighting at
state level events seem
much easier."
Summerlin Judo has a
couple more state level
events planned before the
end of the year. "The kids
will be back in school soon,"
Germain said.
"That is important for
them to focus on, too. We'll
be shifting our focus on the
mats from a peaking effort
to developing new skills. It
helps to take the intensity
level down just a bit and let
the kids settle back into
school while they continue
to learn new skills."


BHS Athletic Department

To Hold Cleanup Saturday


The call is rising from the
campus of Bartow High
School.
All fans, boosters, stu-
dent-athletes and their par-
ents are being asked by ath-
letic director Glenn
Rutenbar to participate in a
major cleanup of the sports
complex this Saturday, Aug.
11, from 7 a.m. until noon.
With the construction
going on all across the
school property, especially
the new football stadium
bleachers, the need for
weeding, picking up trash


and debris, edging, and
mowing "is essential to get
the complex up to the stan-
dards of excellence that the
high school's sports pro-
gram demands," Rutenbar
said.
Interested persons
should meet in the parking
lot by the football stadium
on Saturday morning, and
come prepared to work and
share their enthusiasm for
BHS sports.
For more information,
call Rutenbar at 287-1548.
