Retail Electric Rate Increase


Lower Than Wholesale Boost


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Bartow's electric cus-
tomers will pay an average of
$6.15 to $6.40 per month
more for electricity when the
city's new power contract
with Progress Energy goes
into effect on Jan. 1.
But it could have been
worse.
Finance Director David
Wright said the city will not
pass along the full percent-
age of the price increase
from Progress Energy, which
is 6.85 percent.
Bartow will maintain the
same price mark-up from
wholesale to retail that it
now uses, rather than raising
retail prices by 6.85 percent.
The increase to the retail
customer will be about 5.1
percent, Wright said.
The $6.15 to $6.40
increase is based on typical
residential usage of 1,200 to
1,250. kilowatt hours per
month.
City commissioners fret-
ted over the increase at
Monday afternoon's work
session as they reviewed a


report from Ed Wisser of
Jones Edmumds, the city's
electric power consultant.
Wisser told the commis-
sion that the new Progress
Energy rate is still one of the
lowest in the state, and that
those wholesale suppliers
who have lower wholesale
rates are not in a position to
sell to Bartow.
But one supplier,
Seminole . Electric
Cooperative, expects to have
the additional power-pro-
ducing capacity in 2010 to
take on Bartow as a cus-
tomer, Wisser said.
Bartow's three-year con-
tract with Progress Energy
(formerly Florida Power
Corp.) will expire on Dec. 31,
2010, and commissioners
said they will start soliciting
proposals from wholesalers,
including Seminole, about
18 months before the new
contract expires.
Commissioner Pat Huff
asked if "there is any negoti-
ating room" in the Progress
Energy proposal, and Wright
replied that the offer is "take
it or leave it."
Wright emphasized that


the retail price increase "is
just a pass-through" of the
wholesale price increase,
and not of the full percent-
age.
"We can call it anything
we want to, but it's going to
be more money out of their
pockets," Commissioner
Adrian Jackson said.
"I would like to have got-
ten competitive bids."
He said the city needs to
look into a "level billing"
option, in which customers
pay the same price every
month, based on their past
consumption. That system,
offered by some private
power companies, levels off
the months of peak usage
(mid-summer and mid-win-
ter) with lower consumption
in months with milder
weather.
"With the lack of (gener-
ating) capacity out there, we
really don't have any choice,"
Mayor Brian Hinton said.
In voting to approve the
new contract with Progress
Energy, Jackson said:
"We did the best that we
could."


Firefighters, Golf Clubhouse


Are Major Unfunded Needs


Pastor Roy Lowe (right
in bottom photo) lends a
hand as workers carefully
lower a stained glass win-
dow taken down from the
sanctuary of First United
Methodist Church. All of
the church's stained glass
windows were removed as
part of a restoration and
renovation project to cele-
brate the sanctuary's
100th year. The stained
glass windows were sent
to Bovard Studios in Iowa,
where they will be
cleaned, repaired, and
released from the century
of settling. The windows
will be reinstalled
between six months and a
year. Plexiglass barriers,
already in place to protect
the windows from dam-
age, remain in the frames.
The windows, which have
never been removed
before in the church's his-
tory, cost $2,700 when the
sanctuary was first built,
but are now valued at an
estimated $200,000. -

Hiring additional fire-
fighters and replacing the
Bartow' golf course pro shop
and restaurant were identi-
fied by the city commission
as the city's two greatest
unfunded needs as the
commission completed its
study of the proposed 2007-
08 city budget.
And for the time being, at
least, they remain unfund-
ed.
The commission
approved purchase of a
$500,000 fire truck to
replace an existing truck,
and agreed that the depart-
ment needs more manpow-
er.
Fire Chief Jay Robinson
said that in the 10 years he
has been chief, the depart-
ment's full-time force has
remained at 21. That is
enough to have five fire-
fighters on duty at all times.
The department provides
coverage for 85 square
miles, he said, much of it
outside the city limits.
Robinson said he would
like to add a second fire
inspector and three fire-
fighters.
"We've got to start some
time," he told the commis-
sion.
"The longer we put it off,
the harder it will be,"
Commissioner Adrian
Jackson said. "I think we're
inviting disaster."
"This is a bad year" to
add new positions to the


payroll, Commissioner 'Pat
Huff said. "Next year maybe
bad, too."
Huff said the city also
needs to start planning for 'a
second fire station.
Pro Shop
Public Works Dir. Bill
Pickard told the commis-
sion that the golf course
clubhouse, which includes
a restaurant, a small retail
shop, and golf cart storage.
"takes an awful lot of main-
tenance. We need a new'
clubhouse."
The roof is beyond repair,
and the kitchen is under-
sized, he said.
"That's a real need that
we can't ignore much
longer," Finance Dir. David
Wright said. Revenue from
Mulligan's, the pro shop
restaurant, is rising steadily,
he added.
The city might be able to
secure state recreation
funds to build a new cart
shed near a separate golf
course building that houses
barbecue pits, he said.
In minor tinkering with
the budget, the commission
raised its contribution to
Volunteers In Service To the
Elderly (VISTE) from $4,500
to $5,000.
Other budget highlights:
Police Cars
* The city will buy eight
police cars, and now
expects them to last five


years, rather than two,
because of the take-home
policy that allows officers to
keep their cars during off-
duty hours.
* The city has budgeted
$770,000 to renovate the old
civic center (later the Oaks
School) as a city hall annex.
Half the money is projected
to come from state grants.
* The city has allocated
$1,391,700 to upgrade the
girls softball complex on
County Road 555; most of
the money will come from
county grants.
* The budget allows
$600,000 for street paving
projects, enough to pave
about five miles.
* The master lift station
at the wastewater treatment
plant will be rebuilt at a cost
of $615,285, the majority of
the money to come from a
grant.
Public hearings on the
budget are tentatively
scheduled for Tuesday,
Sept. 4, and Monday, Sept.
17.


Correction

A story on Polk County
property taxes incorrectly
*listed the dates of upcoming
public hearings.
The first will be held on
Sept. 6, and the final public
hearing will be held on Sept.
13. Both will be at 6 p.m:


. 7 Curbside Recycling To Begin
City To Buy Police Laptops, Cameras Curbside Recycling To Begin
T ev ynn gosa.0fUL IUId. t9IXt 1 n U n- i a.i iahL1 . hIel. q


The city will spend $12,141 in state law
enforcement funds for laptop computers'
and digital cameras for the Bartow Police
Dept.
An application to use the funds for the
purpose was approved by the city commis-
sion.
No one spoke at a public hearing on the
proposal.
The commission also:
* Noted Commissioner Adrian Jackson's
announcement that the next meeting of the
charter review committee will be held on


Wednesday, Aug. 29, at 3:30 p.m. at the
Bartow Public Library. Commissioner Leo
Longworth said that meetings at that hour
are difficult for committee members with
jobs to attend.
* Was told by Interim City Atty. John
Murphy that Ametek is still interested in
selling its now-vacant U.S. Gauge plant on
West Polk Street to the city if the two parties
can reach agreement on a Phase 2 environ-
mental audit of the property.
(See Page 13 - Col. 6)


If everything goes as
planned, Bartow will have
curbside recycling in less
than six months.
Participation will be vol-
untary; paying for it will be
mandatory.
Daryl Stewart, Bartow's
solid waste director, out-
lined the plan to city com-
missioners in the closing
minutes of a marathon
meeting that lasted more
than six hours.


vvithout a tormailU vote,
commissioners indicated
they are sold on the plan,
though they are skeptical of
Stewart's assertion that the
program can be operated by
a one-man crew who will
make pick-ups throughout
the city every week.
Stewart's plan:
Every home in Bartow will
be given an 18-gallon recy-
cling container. Elderly citi-
zens will be given the option


Uo a contaiLl. VVnrLi VVw L we s.
All recyclable materials -
paper, plastics, bottles, cans,
cardboard - will go into the
same container, which will
be placed at curbside on the
designated day of the week.,
A specially-designed
truck will run a different
route each weekday, and the
driver will sort the contents

Polk Earns Top Award in All Kathy Haley ^
American County Competition To Speak at


Polk won the top award in
an All American County
competition, Kenneth
Laurent told Bartow Lions
Club members at their July
24 luncheon meeting.
Laurent was one of a 35-
member team that traveled
to Anaheim, Calif., recently
to present Polk County's
story for the competition,
first established in 1988.
He was chosen as a team
member following a term as
president of the Polk County
Parks Foundation. He retired
from the U.S. Department of
Agriculture in 1985, after
serving in Columbia,
Nigeria, Tanzania, El
Salvador, Iran, and Jordan.
Competing with 21 other


finalists, the team presented
three skits before judges.
Their topics were parks,
dealing with hurricane dam-
age, and working with trou-
bled youths.
Laurent praised . the
smoothness with which the
program was planned, say-
ing transportation, housing,
and meals "went off without
k hitch."
The county had estab-
lished a $50,000 budget for
the competition.
A repeat performance of
the awards program will be
offered to the public at the
Bartow Civic Center on
Wednesday, Sept. 5.
The speaker was intro-
duced by Richard Frisbie.

director of Help of Fort
Meade, recently wrote in to

Arkansas.

here, and thinks of them

often.
"I don't think that I have
ever felt so loved as everyone
there made me feel."
She said she's doing well
in the "land of cotton," and
finds her "forced retirement
a real blessing."
She moved to Arkansas in
2004.
"De-stressing can do won-
ders for your health. Love to
hear from you. My little lake
house has room for visitors

Bartow Chamber Executive

Attends National Tourism

Certification Program


After three
years of special-
ized summer
classes, Jeff Clark, .
executive director '
of the Greater " . .
Bartow Chamber
of Commerce, is . .
nearing certifica-
tion as a Tourism
Marketing
Professional
(TMP). Jeff Clark
Clark 'has two
speaking projects to complete to earn
TMP certification from the Southeast
Tourism Society Marketing College.
after completing his third year of
classes earlier this month at North
Georgia College and State University
in Dahlonega, Ga. He was one of 285
tourism professionals enrolled in this
year's program.
No other existing professional
development program is like the STS
Marketing College, recognized
nationally for its training of tourism
leaders. Since the program began in
1992, 368 individuals have earned
TMP certification.
"In the tourism industry, TMP cer-
tification carries a lot of weight," said
Bill Hardman, president and CEO of
the Southeast Tourism Society, a 12-
state organization that promotes trav-
el and tourism in the Southeast.
The STS Marketing College pro-
vides continuing education for
tourism professionals. Tourism ranks
as the first-, second- or third-largest
industry in each STS member state.
Students come from convention and
visitors bureaus, chambers of com-
merce, attractions, hotels and other
segments of the tourism industry.
The curriculum covers topics such
as family vacation research, special
events marketing, media relations
and creative advertising. Heritage
tourism and ...community] rural
tourism are courses that have attracts
ed special inter-


est in recent years.
"The fundamental concept of STS
Marketing College is that the curricu-
lum is practical. What students learn
can be put to practice as soon as they
get back to their workplaces,"
Hardman said.
Twenty-five senior executives in
the travel and tourism industry were
the volunteer faculty.
The marketing college attracts stu-
dents from throughout the Southeast
and occasionally from other states.
This year's program included stu-
dents from Arizona and Oklahoma.
"The Southeast Tourism Society is
recognized nationwide for the cohe-
siveness and camaraderie it fosters in
the region. No other region has a sith-
ilar organization. Our marketing col-
lege is a major project to build skills
and professionalism in the tourism
industry," Hardman said.

Angst Over Electric Rate Increase Is Unnecessary


Few things create as much angst On Jan. 1, Progress Energy (for-
among local officeholders as merly Florida Power Corp., the city's
increasing taxes and fees. wholesale electric provider for


And frankly, we wouldn't have it
any other way. We don't want it to be


easy for those we elect to oversee the
operations of government to come
back and tell us they've got to have
more money.
The angst seems to be dispropor-
tionately high when it comes to
increasing electric rates, perhaps
because the bills arrive monthly -
unlike the annual tax notice - and
the numbers are usually larger than
increases for water, sewer, and
garbage collection.
That said, the Bartow city com-
mission is fretting too much about
the increase that will take effect
when Bartow enters a new contract
with Progress Energy the first of the
year.


decades) will raise its rates to the
city by 6.85 percent. Given that this
is the first wholesale rate increase in
several years, it is far less than the
rate of inflation since the last
increase.
The city cannot - and should not
- absorb that increase. The whole
point in operating a municipal elec-
tric utility is to make money for city
government, which in turn trans-
lates into lower ad valorem property
taxes.
The city would be fully justified in
passing along the full 6.85 percent
increase to its customers; that's what
businesses typically do when their
cost of raw materials goes up.
But Bartow has elected to pass
along only the actual dollar increase


in costs, which reduces its profit renewal with Progress


margin.
According to Finance Director
David Wright, the retail price will go
up by about 5.1 percent, not the 6.85
percent by which the wholesale rate
is rising. That is the recommenda-
tion from the city's electric consul-
tant, Ed Wisser, from Wright, and
from Interim City Mgr. Linda
Culpepper..
For the typical household cus-
tomer using 1,200 to 1,250 kilowatt
hours of electricity per month, the
price will go up by $6.15 to $6.40
Three years from now, Seminole
Electric Cooperative expects to have
enough generating capacity to take
on Bartow as a customer. The city
plans to look at competitive offers
from Seminole and other suppliers
before Bartow's three-year contract


Energy


expires.
If previous experience is any indi-
cator, Progress Energy will submit a
highly competitive price when that
time comes. Bartow has been a cus-
tomer of the company and its prede-
cessor, Florida Power, for well over
half a century. Other providers have
tried without success to win the
city's business.
Until then, Progress Energy has
made a fair proposal, and the City of
Bartow has elected to give its cus-
tomers a break by shaving its per-
centage of profit.
We don't mind seeing city com-
missioners squirm a little before
raising rates and taxes for citizens,
but in this case, the discomfort is
unnecessary.


INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD

Out of Death Comes a Bestseller?


A few days ago I received
from Wauchula Herald
Advocate Managing Editor
Cyndi Krahl an e-mail mes-
sage that was puzzling and a
little bit disturbing.
The note said, "Chip, are
you alive? This office has
been receiving notices of
your death."
Wondering how she
expected me to respond if I
were not alive, I checked my
calendar to make sure it was-
n't April Fool's day. I thought
it was a joke because in the
subject line of the e-mail
message was the name, Mark
Twain.
Once when rumors of
Twain's death were circulat-
ing, he made an announce-
ment saying, "The rumor of
my death has been greatly
exaggerated.".
I promptly replied to
Cyndi's e-mail assuring her
not only was I alive, but get-
ting younger and better-
looking every day. So now
that Cyndi had had her
belated April Fool's day joke
on me, I'd shot back my witty
reply, so I figured that was
that.
But it wasn't. A couple of
days later when I was in Wal-
Mart waiting in line, at a
check-out counter, an
employee I know whose
father works at a funeral
home saw me and her eyes
bulged as if she'd seen a
ghost. She approached me
with trepidation and fear in
her eyes.
"Mr. Ballard?"
"He's my daddy," I said.
"I'm Chip."
"But you're the school
teacher."
"I'm the ACE-man."
As far as I knew this young
lady had never been in trou-
ble at school in her life, so
maybe she didn't know what
I was talking about, but I did-
n't think the particulars of
my employment had any-


thing to do with where this
was going. I was right.
"Y-you're not dead?" she
said.
"Where'd you hear that?" I
asked her.
She said her father had
received several calls at the
funeral home from mourn-
ers wanting to know the
address where they could
send me flowers. I was
touched.
She smiled.
"I'm glad you aren't dead."
"Me, too," I said.
The check-out line I was
in inched forward and the
girl who was glad I wasn't
dead walked off into the
store..
When I got home I took
the stuff I'd bought at Wal-
Mart into my house and
walked across the street to
see how Mama and Daddy
were doing. Just as I opened
the door, my cell phone
buzzed. I snapped it open.
"This is Angee," a female
voice said. Angee is the office
manager at the high school.
"Are you all right?"
"I'm fine," I said. "Why?"
"Are you sure you're all
right?"
"Sure I'm sure. What's this
about?"
"I heard you were dead."
"It's a lie."
"Are you sure?"
"Positive."
I assured her I was fine
and said I'd be back out to


the school in a day or two to
prove it. I'd already started
getting my new ACE room
ready for the coming year.
I want to thank all of you
who called to check on me
for your thoughtfulness. As
was the case with Mark
Twain, the rumor of my
death was greatly exaggerat-
ed.
But if you had planned to
send flowers, just send
money instead. Here's why.
Many of you have asked
about my novel, "High
School Homicide," that I've
written and rewritten and
revised so many times. It's
with deep regret and some
shame that I admit I have not
gotten a single legitimate
editor to even read it.
It's a well known fact that
the worth of many writers'
work has not been estab-
lished until after their
demise.
So now that, according to
so many mourners, I am
demised - or is it demosed?
- if enough flower money
rolls in, I'll be able to publish
and promote my book
myself; and as it will be a
posthumous publication, it'll
just naturally have to be a
smash.

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

Better Late Than Never?


Back when I was a kid,
train travel was a popular
option for passengers.
Though less glamorous
than flying (all airline pas-
sengers wore their Sunday
best, all cabin attendants
were courteous, and "airline
food" was not an oxy-
moron), rail travel was less
expensive (except for food in
the dining car).
It was rapid enough to get
you to your destination
expeditiously, but slow
enough to let you see the
countryside.
Trains ran on time, so
much so that the conduc-
tor's watch was the atomic
clock of its day.
And they didn't have
machines in the train station
selling you life insurance in
case you didn't arrive alive at
your destination.
There was another thing
about train travel: the con-
ductor collected your ticket
after you were on board and
the train was under way to
its destination.
Perhaps it was not so
much a matter of'trust as of
practicality: with two
entrances to every train car,
the only way to collect tick-
ets before boarding would
be to have every passenger
pass through a single gate.
Come to think of it, that
would have been possible,
but the conductor walking
through each car was part of
the ambiance, sort of like the
traditional glance at his
watch and the hearty "All

aboard!"
Airline travel is essential
to public transportation
these days, far more so than
passenger trains. Essential,
but not much fun.
Hospitality begins with
rigidly-enforced "No
Stopping" zones outside the
terminal, continues with
scrutiny of carry-on baggage
to be sure it's small efiough
to meet the airline's rules,
followed by a passenger
screening policy that treats
elderly women and United
States senators as potential
terrorists, lest swarthy
Middle Easterners get their
feelings hurt.
Tickets, needless to say,
are collected before board-
ing, after they are checked
against a photo ID.
Passengers are shoe-
horned into seats that can
induce claustrophobia, and
if they want sustenance
more satisfying than a small
bag of pretzels, they are
advised to bring their own
food onto the plane with
them.,
Okay, some of the incon-
venience and inhospitable
treatment is necessary to try
to ensure the safety of pas-
sengers (who no longer can
buy life insurance at the air-
port terminal).
All of this I can under-
stand, even if I don't like it,
but I was amazed to read a
two-paragraph article a few
days ago that said that
beginning early in 2008,
names of passengers will be



History Des

Ironically, we all want to
go to Europe to see the "old
stuff." Very soon Bartow
won't have any "old stuff" to
see.
We are currently not at
home and it was with much


checked against "watch lists"
of potential terrorists before
departure, not after the
plane is in the air.
Say what?
"The change is part of a
slow shift to put the Dept. of
Homeland Security in
charge of the watch-list
screening for all commercial
flights, foreign and domes-
tic," the story reported.
Planes are in the air
before anybody bothers to
see if there are known terror-
ists on board?
And what happens if they
find one? Do they give him a
parachute, a refund, a lunch
voucher, and a "have a nice
flight" as they boot him out
the door?
Or does the captain
announce:
"Ladies and gentlemen,
we have just discovered that
we have a terrorist on board,
and we will be returning to
the airport to take our place
in a crowded traffic pattern
until we can make an
unscheduled landing to
remove him from the air-
craft. In the meantime, we
ask that our guest terrorist
do nothing to endanger the
aircraft or his fellow passen-
gers."
No, it is impossible to
keep all potential terrorists
and nut cases from boarding
an aircraft.
But it would be reassuring
if the effort weie made
before the plane was in the
air.

Be Aware Of The Dangers Of Heat


When the dog days of
summer deliver hot temper-
atures and high humidity,
the American Red Cross
urges residents to take pre-
cautions against the heat.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention, approximately
400 Americans die each year
due to summer's sweltering
heat.
Furthermore, the
National Weather Service
asserts that excessive heat
was the number one weath-
er-related killer, causing
more fatalities per year than
floods, lightning, tornadoes,
hurricanes, winter storms
and extreme cold from 1994
to 2003.
Everyone is at risk when
temperatures rise above 90
degrees but the elderly and
the very young are most sus-
ceptible to heat and heat-
related illnesses. Heat-relat-
ed illnesses can cause seri-
ous injury and even death if
unattended.
Signs of heat-related ill-
nesses include nausea,
dizziness, flushed or pale
skin, heavy sweating and
headaches.
Victims of heat-related ill-
ness should be moved to a
cool place, given cool water
to drink and ice paeks or
cool wet cloths should be
applied to the skin. If a vic-
tim refuses water, vomits or
loses consciousness, call 9-
1-1 or your local emergency
number immediately.
"At the Red Cross, our
main goal is to help prevent
emergencies by educating
our community on how they
can protect themselves and
their families from heat-
related illness," said Phil
Attinger, public relations
director for the American
Red Cross Polk County
Chapter.
Red Cross Heat Safety
Tips:
* Dress for the heat. Wear
lightweight, light-colored
clothing. Light colors will
reflect away some of the
sun's energy. It is also a good
idea to wear hats or to use an
umbrella.


* Drink water. Carry water
or juice with you and drink
continuously even if you do
not feel thirsty. Avoid alcohol
and caffeine, which dehy-
drate the body. Avoid using
salt tablets unless directed to
do so by a physician.
* Eat small meals and eat
more often. Avoid high-pro-
tein foods, which increase
metabolic heat.
* Slow down. Avoid stren-
uous activity. If you must do
strenuous activity, do it dur-
ing the coolest part of the
day, which is usually in the
morning between 4 and 7
a.m.
* Stay indoors when pos-
sible. If air-conditioning is
not available, stay on the
lowest floor out of the sun-
shine. Remember that elec-
tric fans do not cool, they
simply circulate the air.
* Be a good neighbor.
During heat waves, check in
on elderly residents in your
neighborhood and those
who do not have air condi-
tioning.
* Learn Red Cross first aid
and CPR. While the above
tips can help prevent emer-
gencies, it is crucial to know
what to do if an emergency
situation arises.
Know What These Heat-
Related Terms Mean:
* Heat cramps: Heat
cramps are muscular pains
and spasms due to heavy
exertion. Although heat
cramps are the least severe,
they are an early signal that
the body is having trouble
with the heat.
* Heat exhaustion: Heat
exhaustion typically occurs
when people exercise heavi-
ly or work in a hot, humid
place where body fluids are
lost through heavy sweating.
Blood flow to the skin
increases, causing blood
flow to decrease to the vital
organs. This results in a form
of mild shock.
If not treated, the victim
may suffer heat stroke.
Signals of heat exhaustion
include cool, moist, pale
flushed or red skin; heavy
sweating; headache; nausea
or vomiting; dizziness; and


exhaustion. Body tempera-
ture will be near normal.
* Heat stroke: Also known
as sunstroke, heat stroke is
life-threatening. The victim's
temperature control system,
which produces sweating to
cool the body, stops work-
ing. The body temperature
can rise so high that brain
damage and death may
result if the body is not
cooled quickly.
Signals include hot, red
and dry skin; changes in
consciousness; rapid, weak
pulse; and rapid, shallow
breathing. Body tempera-
ture can be very high -
sometimes as high as 105
degrees E
General Care for Heat
Emergencies:
* Heat cramps or heat
exhaustion: Get the person
to a cooler place and have
him or her rest in a comfort-
able position. If the person is
fully awake and alert, give
half a glass of cool water
every 15 minutes. Do not let
him or her drink too quickly.
Do not give liquids that con-
tain alcohol or caffeine.
Remove or loosen tight
clothing and apply cool, wet
cloths, such as towels or
sheets. Call 9-1-1 or the local
emergency number if the
person refuses water, vomits
or loses consciousness.
* Heat stroke: Heat stroke
is a life-threatening situa-
tion! Help is needed fast. Call
9-1-1 or your local emer-
gency number.
Move the person to a
cooler place. Quickly cool
the body. Immerse victim in
a cool bath, or wrap wet
sheets around the body and
fan it. Watch for signals of
breathing problems. Keep
the person lying down and
continue to cool the body
any way you can.
If the victim refuses water
or is vomiting or there, are
changes in the level of con-
sciousness, do not give any-
thing to eat or drink.

heat safety, contact the local
American Red Cross at 294-
5941.

Fathers' Rights Rally

Aug. 23 in Bartow


"A child is a gift from God
and needs both parents in
their lives, not just the moth-
er," organizers of a fathers'
rights rally believe.
They have scheduled a
rally on Thursday, Aug. 23, at
8 a.m., at the Polk County
Courthouse in Bartow.
"We will be standing and
believing for father's rights,"
William Dunn, an organizer
of the event, said.
"We need stronger laws
enforced for visitation, false
allegations, and false
domestic violence allega-
tions. This is destroying fam-
ilies every day. We will stand
together as one and be a
voice for all."
But that doesn't mean
they don't realize that moth-
ers are sometimes the victim
of these problems, too.
Dunn travels around the
state in his work and has
talked to both men and
women who have faced the


same problems he has in
custody cases.
State Rep. Baxter
Troutman has asked
Secretary Robert
Butterworth of the Florida
Department of Children &
Families to provide him with
the department's practices
governing investigation of
claims of abuse.
False allegations were
made against Dunn by his
child's mother, the letter
says. He was never ques-
tioned by DCF after the alle-
gations were made, Dunn
said, but his visitation rights
were taken away until the
court decision nine months
later in which he won cus-
tody.
Dunn now hopes to help
other fathers - and mothers
- in similar situations.
For more information
about the rally, call Dunn at
944-5641 or Jamey Adams at
838-3191.


Armed Robbery Suspects Sought


Polk County Sheriff's rob-
bery detectives are seeking
information about an armed
robbery that occurred at the
Papa John's Pizza restaurant
at 2105 Hwy 540-A East in

Just after midnight that
morning, detectives say, two
employees were at the rear
of the restaurant closing

they heard glass breaking at
the front of the business. The
employees ran up front, saw
two masked, black male sus-
pects entering the business
through a broken window,
and then the employees hid
in the back room.
The suspects ransacked
the front of the store, and
then ran into the back room

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
NOTICE OF PERMIT MODIFICATION
The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of a permit modifi-
cation [Permit No. FL00033294; PA File
No. FL0033294-009-IWB/MR] for Mosaic
Fertilizer, L.L.C. [mailing address: Post
Office Box 2000, Mulberry, Florida 33860-
1100] for the Hookers Prairie Mine. The
facility is located in Polk County at 110
Agricola Mine Road, Bradley, Florida and
geographically at:
Latitude: 27"47'01" N Longitude:
81'56'30" W
Mosaic Fertilizer, L.L.C., applied on
July 2, 2007 to the Department of
Environmental Protection to modify the
current permit to authorize the removal of
the existing NPDES Outfall D-004 and the
associated monitoring requirements as a
point source discharge location for this
facility. The mined area within the Hookers
Prairie Mine system, which previously
contributed flows to Outfall D-004, has
been reclaimed and the watershed is no
longer used in any capacity for the mine
operations. The reclaimed area designat-
ed as HP-10 Phase 1 has been autho-
rized, under separate Department action,
to be reconnected to Hookers Prairie. The
connection will be accomplished by the
installation of a swale as a replacement for
the outfall structure.
The Department will issue the permit
modification unless a timely petition for an
administrative hearing is filed under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes before the deadline for filing a
petition. The procedures for petitioning for
a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's pro-
posed permitting decision may petition for
an administrative proceeding (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) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the
parties listed below must be filed within
fourteen days of receipt of this written
notice. Petitions filed by any persons other
than those entitled to written notice under


Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes
must be filed within fourteen days of publi-
cation of the notice or within fourteen 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 fourteen
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 with-


in the appropriate time period shall consti-
tute a waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative determination
(hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes. Any subse-
quent intervention (in a proceeding initiat-
ed by another party) will be only at the
approval of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with Rule
28-106.205, of the Florida Administrative
Code.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Department's action is
base must contain the following informa-
tion:
(a) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner, the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any, the
Department permit identification number
and the county in which the subject matter
or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when peti-
tioner received notice of the agency action
or proposed action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's
substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues
of material fact. If there are none, the peti-
tion must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner
contends warrant reversal or modification
of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific facts
the petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the agency's action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
petitioner, stating precisely the action peti-
tioner wants the Department to take.
A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the Department's
action is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as set forth
above, as required by Rule 28-106.301.<
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final action
may be different from the position taken by
it in this permit. Persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by any such final
decision of the Department on the applica-
tion have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administra-
tive hearing,-any petitioner may elect'to
pursue mediation. The election may be
accomplished by filing with theta
Department a mediation agreement with
all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the appli-
cant, the Department, and any person
who has filed a timely and sufficient peti-
tion for the hearing). The agreement must
contain all the information required by rule
28-106.404. The agreement must be
received by the clerk in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000, within ten days after the deadline for
filing a petition, as set forth above.
Choosing mediation will not adversely
affect the right to a 'hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement.
As provided in section 120.573 of the
Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of
all parties to mediate will toll the time limi-
tations imposed by section 120.569 and
120.57 for holding an administrative hear-
ing and issuing a final order. Unless other-
wise agreed by the parties, the mediation
must be concluded within sixty days of the
execution of the agreement. If mediation
results in settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must enter a final
order incorporating the agreement of the
parties. Persons seeking to protect their
substantial interest that would be affected
by such a modified final decision must file
their petitions within fourteen days of
receipt of this notice, or they shall be
deemed'to have waived their right to a
proceeding' under sections 120.569 and
120.57. If mediation terminates without
settlement of the dispute, the Department
shall notify all parties in writing that the
administrative hearing processes under
section 120.569 and 120.57 remain avail-
able for disposition of the dispute, and the
notice will specify the deadlines that then
will apply for challenging the agency
action and electing remedies under those
two statutes.
This action is final! and effective on the
date filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a petition (or request for mediation)
is filed in accordance with the above.
Upon the timely filing of a petition (or
request for mediation) this order will not be
effective until further order of the
Department.
Any party to the order has the right to
seek judicial review of the order under
Section 120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by
the 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 final order is filed with
the Clerk of the Department.
The application is available for public
inspection during normal business hours,
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through
Friday, except legal holidays, at the State
of Florida, Department of Environmental
Protection, Bureau of Mining and Minerals

PROTECTION
NOTICE OF PERMIT REVISION
The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of a permit revision
(Permit No. FL0037958; PA File No.
FL0037958-012-IW1S/RA) for Mosaic
Fertilizer, L.L.C.'s South Fort Meade Mine
(mailing address: Mosaic Fertilizer, L.L.C.
Post Office Box 2000, Mulberry, Florida
33860-1100), which discharges excess
process wastewater and stormwater via
Outfall D-001. Outfall D-001 discharges
excess process wastewater and stormwa-
ter into an unnamed swale, which flows
into the Peace River.
The permit revision only authorizes the
construction and subsequent operation,
after receipt of Department approval, of a
new 548-acre clay settling area (CSA)
designated SFM-7 and associated appur-
tenances located east of CSA SFM-5. The
proposed CSA SFM-7 will receive clay
slurry via a pressurized pipeline positioned
along the perimeter embankments. Three
decant spillway structures will discharge
clarified water into a newly constructed
above-grade return water ditch system
located along the east wall of CSA SFM-7,
which will be connected to the existing
return hydraulic ditch along the north side
of CSA SFM-7.
The facility is located at 5880 Manley
Road, Ft. Meade within a portion of
Sections 19, 20, 29 and 30 Township 32S,
Range 26E in Polk County and geograph-
ically at:
Latitude: 27 39' 59" N
Longitude: 81' 45' 32" W
The Department will issue the permit
unless a timely petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida


Statutes, or all parties reach a written
agreement on mediation as an alternative
remedy under section 120.573 before the
deadline for filing a petition. Choosing
mediation will not adversely affect the right
to a hearing if mediation does not result in
a settlement. The procedures for petition-
ing for a hearing are set forth below, fol-
lowed by the procedures for pursuing
mediation.
Any person whose substantial interests
are affected by the proposed permitting
decision' of the Department may petition
for an administrative hearing in accor-
dance with sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received) in the Department


of Environmental Protection, Office of
General Counsel, Mall Station 35, 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard , Tallahassee,
Florida, 32399-3000. Petitions must be
filed within fourteen days of publication of
this public notice or within fourteen days of
receipt of the notice of Intent, whichever
occurs first. A petitioner must mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above, at the time of fil-
ing. The failure of any person to file a peti-
tion (or a request for mediation, as dis-
cussed below) within the appropriate time
period shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an. administrative
determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes, or to intervene in this proceeding
and participate as a party to it. Any subse-
quent intervention will be only at the dis-
cretion of the presiding officer upon the fil-
ing of a motion in compliance with Rule
28-5.207 of the Florida Administrative
Code.
A petition must contain the following infor-
mation:
(a) The name, address, and
telephone number of each petitioner;
the Department permit identification
number and the county in which the
subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and
when each petitioner received notice
of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petition-
er's substantial interests are affected
by the Department action;
(d) A statement of the material
fact disputed by the petitioner, if any;
(e) A statement of facts that the peti-
tioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the Department action;
(f) A statement of which rules or
statutes the petition contends require
reversal or modification of the
agency's action; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by petitioner, stating precisely
the action petitioner wants the
Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final
action may be different from the posi-
tion taken by it in this permit. Persons
whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of
the Department on the application
have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set forth above.
Any person may elect to pursue medi-
ation by reaching a mediation agree-
ment with all parties to the proceeding
(which includes the Department and
� any person who has filed a timely and
sufficient petition for a hearing) and by
showing how the substantial interests
of each mediating party are affected
by the action or proposed action of the
Department. The agreement must be
filed in (received by) the Department
of Environmental Protection, Office of
General Counsel, Mail Station 35,
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard ,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, by
the same deadline as set forth above
for the filing of a petition.
The agreement to mediate must
include the following:
(a) the names, addresses, and tele-
phone numbers of any persons who
may attend the mediation;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the mediator selected by
the parties, or a provision for selecting
a mediator within a specified time;
(c) The agreed allocation of the costs
and fees associated with the media-
tion;
(d) The agreement of the parties on
the confidentiality of discussions and
documents introduced during media-
tion;
(e) The date, time, and place of the
first mediation session, or a deadline
for holding the first session, if no medi-
ator has yet been chosen;
(f) The name of each party's represen-
tative who shall have authority to set-
tle or recommend settlement;
(g) Either an explanation of how the
substantial interests of each mediating
party will be affected by the action or
proposed action addressed in this
action or a statement clearly iddntify-
ing the petition for hearing that each
party as already filed, and incorporat-
ing it by reference; and
(h)The signatures of all parties or their
authorized representatives.
As provided in section 120.573 of the
Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of
all parties to mediate will toll the time limi-
tations imposed by section 120.569 and
120.57 for holding an administrative hear-
ing and issuing a final order. Unless other-
wise agreed by the parties, the mediation
must be concluded within sixty days of the
execution of the agreement. If mediation
results in settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must enter a final
order incorporating the agreement of the
parties. Persons seeking to protect their
substantial interest that would be affected
by such a modified final decision must file
their petitions within fourteen days of
receipt of this notice, or they shall be
deemed to have waived their right to a
proceeding under sections 120.569 and

Saving school memories
Did you ever stop to think that a
person who might someday be presi-
dent of the United States could be in
your classroom this year?
Or maybe you are a future presi-
dent yourself.
You might want to save some of
your school stuff, just
in case:
* report cards
* art creations
* school photos
* papers with good
grades.
People will want to know you bet-
ter. They probably will really want to
know about your school years.
Even if you don't become president,
you will want to save souvenirs of
your school years to show your kids
someday.
..This photo was
taken of this
president-to-
;be when he
was at Yale
University. He
is holding his
S young son,
. " - who later also
became presi-
dent.

Can you look at the numbered photos at
the right and tell who this president might
be? 4sng -lH a-2oa-) :JaMsuv


Presidential libraries
When a president's term is up, he
needs a place to store his important doc-
uments, photos and other reminders of
his life and time in office.
Today, there are presidential libraries
administered by the National Archives
honoring our last 12 presidents.
People go there to do research about
these presidents-and to find out more
about their lives. The Mini Page thought
our readers would be interested in these
presidents' education.
1. Herbert Hoover, Iowa

2. Franklin Roosevelt, New York

3. Harry Truman, Missouri

4. Dwight Eisenhower, Kansas

5. John F. Kennedy, Massachusetts [

6. Lyndon Johnson, Texas
7
7. Richard Nixon, California

8. Gerald Ford, Michigan

9. Jimmy Carter, Georgia

10. Ronald Reagan, California

11. George H.W. Bush, Texas


Can you color in the states where these
libraries are located? Maybe you will visit
one of them this summer.

These are photos of nine presi-
dents while they were students. Can

their adult photos as a clue?

on a farm. In

especially liked
S, spelling and
.:: math. He went
on to West
. Point and
- became a U.S.
" Army general.


This photo was
taken when he
graduated from
Harvard.
He always went
to private,
schools.
His keen inter-
est in social
activities, foot-
ball, swimming
and golf took so
much of his time
that his grades
were not as
good as they
might have
been.

guration cere-
mony. He
worked for a
senator part-
time when he
was in college.

He was only 5

ed taking piano

loved music all
of his life, and
also played the

Can you find this president? This
is the back row of a photo taken
when he graduated from his high
school. In college, he studied to
be an elementary school teacher.
He also became interested in poli-
tics. (al eLf a Wa4 p4 s OaH)


This issue is based on the exhibit "School

Archives Building in Washington, D.C. It is
on display through December 2007. The
materials on view come from various presi-
dential libraries.

is young oys moer reao e paid close attention
to his education. He was educated by tutors at home. He had a
library of about 17,000 books as an adult.
He often took trips abroad while he was growing up. This photo
was taken on a trip to Germany when he was 14.


He went away to a private school when he was 14 years old. It's
hard to pick him out because the photo is so small. Who was he?

Where are other presidential
papers kept?
Before the presidential libraries were set up, the
papers and important documents of our earlier presidents
were distributed to many different sources. Some of these
papers were even destroyed.
However, the largest collection of presidential papers
from most of the earlier presidents is in the Library of
Congress in Washington, D.C.
The Library of
Congress is the
- ,largest library in
the world. It has
- .... millions of books,
photographs,
. . recordings and
other important
- papers.


* After a fire destroyed the library's first collection,
Thomas Jefferson, our third president, sold his personal
library of 6,487 books to the Library of Congress for
about $24,000.
* Included in the library's collec-
tion of George Washington's papers
is a listing of 110 maxims or rules of
conduct, called "Rules of Chivalry
and Decent Behavior in Company
and Conversation." At the age of 11,
Washington probably copied the list
from one that had been written ear-
lier. One example: "Sleep not when
others speak."

Why Mid-Life Doesn't Have To Be A Crisis


Surprise! Welcome to
mid-life, or middle age, or
whatever it is you want to
call it. Welcome to that peri-
od when people expect you
to have a mid-life crisis, but
where, hopefully, you'll real-
ize that there's no need to.
While there isn't any spe-
cific age that means you've
hit mid-life, there are
changes you're probably
noticing. You really don't feel
older, just not as youthful as
you once did. You probably
notice that you've lost some
energy, have trouble reading
that restaurant menu, and
that your mirror is showing a
few more wrinkles and gray
hairs.
But simply reaching mid-
life doesn't have to mean a
crisis in your life. Sure,
there's that media stereotype
of someone, usually a man,


responding to that mid-life
crisis with a new sports car, a
new and younger spouse,
and other grasping moves to
recapture youth, but the
reality is that reaching mid-
dle age doesn't have to be a
problem time in your life.
Rather, it can be a time when
you gain a more positive
attitude about maturing,
affirm the positive things in
your life, and learn to live
with aging comfortably.
Start the positive process
by making a list of things
you've learned since adoles-
cence and how they've
served you. Include your
work success, the friend-
ships you've developed, your
family relationships, social
ease, and numerous other
accomplishments. Take
pride in what you've
learned. It was often hard-

learned through experience.
Next, rather than dwelling
on being older, look for ways
to help you keep feeling
healthy and relaxed -
maybe a new activity like
swimming, jogging or bik-
ing. Perhaps becoming
involved in community
activities, such as working
with children and teaching
skills you've learned.
It's also helpful to set
some new goals. Think
about things you'd like to
achieve in the next few
years, then take action to
start achieving those goals.
Mid-life only becomes a
crisis when you're unable to
accept your age and the
changes it has brought. If
you find that the fact of
aging is leading to ongoing
depression, or impulsive,
possibly negative, actions,
then seek help from a pro-
fessional counselor.
Mid-life should be a time
to celebrate all you've
accomplished and to look
forward to all still to come.
It's a time to enjoy, not a cri-
sis to endure.

Auction Brings Record

Breaking Sales To Fla.


Department of Financial
Services, Bureau of,
Unclaimed Property
(Bureau) broke previous
unclaimed property auction
records at this month's auc-
tion in Orlando, raising more
money than previous auc-
tions and breaking last year's
attendance record.
During Saturday's auc-
tion, the bureau raised more
than $817,000 for the State
School Trust Fund from the.
selling of 534 lots, or groups,
of items.
The top selling item was a
3.3 ct. pear-shaped diamond
that sold for $22,000, $12,500
over the reserve price.
The highest-percentage
performing lot contained a
royal belt buckle and spurs
believed to be from the last
Empress of France, Empress
Eugenie, the wife of
Napoleon III.
It sold for $5,000, com-
pared to the reserve price of
$400.
Among other the top sell-
ing items at Saturday's auc-
tion were autographed Hank
Aaron and Don Larsen base-
balls that sold for $450,-an
uncirculated 1896 $1 silver
certificate that sold for
$3,100, a 1934 $500 bill that
sold for $2,800, a five ct.
blue-green diamond that
sold for $14,000, and a 17 ct.
natural sapphire ring that
sold for $10,700.
The auction had approxi-
mately 450 registered bid-
ders - a record number -
with bidders from 15 states
and one from the United
Kingdom.


The public interest in the
auction also led thousands
of Floridians to the
unclaimed property website,
www.FLTreasureHunt.org, to
see if the state was holding
their assets.
While on a typical day, the
Bureau's website receives
approximately 4,000 visitors,
more than 48,800 Floridians
visited the site the day
before the auction.
In the first four days of
August, the Bureau received
claims from approximately
30,000 Floridians for over
$13 million in unclaimed
property.
. Floridians are encouraged
to search not only for their
own names, but also for the
names of their family mem-
bers and ancestors.
Many of the accounts
held by the state are in the
name of deceased relatives,
and it can be difficult for the
state to locate the heirs of
these accounts.
The Bureau receives items
that have been abandoned
in safe deposit boxes for at
least three years and spends


up to two years searchingfor
the rightful owners or heirs.
In the past year alone, the
Bureau returned a record
255,000 accounts valued at
more than $171 million., But
when owners or heirs, can-
not be found, the items are
auctioned. While the pro-
ceeds from the auctioned
items are transferred to,the
state's Public School Trust
Fund, the money is held'in
the original owners' name
and can be claimed for free
at any time.
Unclaimed property can
be claimed for free at 'any
time by the rightful owners
or heirs by logging on to
www.fltreasurehunt.org or
by calling the Bureau at 1-
88-VALUABLE.
Until claimed, the
unclaimed funds are trans-
ferred to the state's School
Trust .Fund to benefit public
schools. Since the program's
inception in 1961, more than
$1.5 billion has been trans-
ferred to the fund.

Marcus Abraham Wins Junior

Olympic Shot Put Competition


Marcus Abraham won the
AAU Junior Olympic Shot
Put Championship held at
the University of Tennesse.
Abraham, 10, competed
in the Bantam Boys Division.
He has been shot putting
since he was 8.
He has been undefeated
at all AAU/USA meets that
he has competed in this sea-
son. Abraham has been
ranked #1 in the nation from
his first outdoor meet
through the end of the out-
door season on the National
Elite Ranking System.
During this season,
Abraham broke the record at
two of the biggest meets. At


the Jim Law Invitational at
Johnson C. Smith University,
he putted 35 feet, 6.5 inches,
breaking the previous record
by five feet. At Blunt-Duke
University, he broke the
record by four feet with a put
of 37 feet, 1.25 inches.
He won the AAU National
Outdoor Championship on
his last put, which was 35
feet, .025 inches.
Abraham is coached by
his father and mother,
Bennie and Cordella Wilson
Abraham, who attended
South Carolina State
University on track scholar-
ships.
Mrs. Abraham, a Bartow

at the curb, tossing each
type of recyclable into a dif-
ferent compartment on the
truck.
A driver can handle 700
pick-ups a day, Stewart said.
Every customer will be
charged $1 a month for the
service, whether it is used or
not. Participation will be
voluntary, and there will be.
no penalty for not taking
part.
Lakeland presently has
the lowest recycling fee in
the county, $1.75 per
month, Stewart said; Winter
Haven is planning to intro-
duce the service for a fee of
more than $2.
Stewart's projections are
that about 20 percent of
Bartow households will use
the service as soon as it is
offered, with the potential


for 50 percent participation
when the idea catches on. If
participation should sub-
stantially exceed 50 percent,
a second truck and driver
would be required.
The monthly billings and
the money that the city will
receive for recycled material
is projected to produce
$67,000 a year in revenue,
slightly more than the cost
of providing the service, he
said.
The bins cost $4.95 each;
Stewart plans to buy 7,100
initially, enough to meet the
city's needs for several years.
The truck will cost $160,000,
to' be financed over five
years.
The key to success of a
recycling program is educa-
tion and promotion, he
said.
The target date to begin
the service is Feb. 1.


Stewart also won
approval by the commission
for purchase of a $125,000
roll-off truck, which will be
used to service large trash
bins of the type typically
used in construction pro-
jects.

Students Prepare for First Day of School Bartow High School Hosts
...., a - . , -r.. rr. . Orientation Thursday


With Orientatlon Day This Thursday


Orientation day for Polk Public
Schools is Thursday, Aug. 16.
Attendance is not mandatory, but
parents and students are highly
encouraged to attend to meet teachers
and staff, tour schools and classrooms
and review school forms, documents
and publications.
Schools have specific times set
aside for orientation. For orientation
information and schedules, call the
individual schools.
Bus transportation is not provided
to orientation.
The first of day of school for the
2007-2008 school year for Polk Public
Schools is Monday, Aug. 20. Call the
school district's Department of
Support Services at 534-7300 for bus
transportation information.
The Department of Support
Services offers these tips regarding dri-
ving and transportation to and from
schools.
Tips for Parents and Drivers
* Everyone should wear a seatbelt
and children should be in age and size


Drought
Grocery bills may be
more expensive soon.
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson says consumers
will see food prices increase
and the state face serious
economic consequences if
the prolonged drought in
southeast Florida contin-
ues.
Total statewide economic
losses have already topped
an estimated $100 million
this year, and are expected
to surpass $1 billion over
the next two years if the cur-
rent situation is not altered.
"Some agricultural
industries like cattle, citrus
and sugar won't feel the
worst of their financial
pains until 2008 and 2009,"
Bronson said.
While the normal sum-


appropriate car seats.
* Stay focused on driving and don't
be distracted by kidsin the car or with
other activities.
* Slow down in school zones.
Driving just 5 MPH over the speed
limit increases both the risk of hitting
a child and the severity of any injuries.
* You never know if children cross-
ing the street are paying attention, so
remain stopped until the child has
crossed not only your lane of traffic,
but the adjacent lane as well.
* Never pass a vehicle that has
stopped at a crosswalk, as they may be
waiting for someone to cross.
* Do not pass a school bus when its
red lights are flashing, even if it is on
the other side of the street.
* Use extra care in areas where chil-
dren may enter the road from between
parked vehicles or other things that
block a driver's view of the road. And,
watch out for bicycles.
Tips for School Bus Riders
* Do not play in the street while
waiting for the bus.


* Line up facing the bus, not along
side it.
* After getting off the bus, move out
of traffic.
* Wait for the bus driver to signal
you to cross the street. Walk away from
the front of the bus so the driver can
see you.
Tips for Walking or Biking to School
* Walk with a friend.
* Pay attention to all traffic signals
and crossing guards. Never cross the
street against a stop light.
* Cross only at crosswalks, and
never run into the street from between
parked cars.
* Look left, right, and over your
shoulder for traffic before crossing a
street, and continue to check each
direction.
* Make sure drivers see you by mak-
ing eye contact with them.
* If riding a bicycle, scooter or skate-
board to school, always wear a helmet
and ride in the same direction as traf-
fic. Walk your bike if crossing a street.


day Increase Food Prices


mer rains have eased the
severity of urban water
shortages throughout the
state, many Floridians are
unaware that agricultural
producers around Lake
Okeechobee are facing
ongoing water shortages
and storage dilemmas that
will continue well into next
year and beyond.
In addition to providing a
backup drinking water sup-
ply for the densely populat-
ed communities of South
Florida and a critical sup-
plemental water supply for
the Everglades, Lake
Okeechobee stores irriga-
tion water for some 700,000
acres of agriculture - con-
sidered by some as the most
productive farm land in the
world.
"Agriculture around the
* lake is facing a dire situa-


tion," Bronson said. "If
there's any hope of avoiding
a financial meltdown, it's
absolutely essential that the
state, the South Florida
Water Management District
and the Army Corps of
Engineers do everything
possible to increase water
levels in Lake Okeechobee."
Even with the increasing
rainfall in recent weeks,
Bronson believes that state
agencies must find a way to
put more storage water back
into the lake. Florida's "dry
season" starts in November
and most agricultural pro-
ducers do not feel that there
is sufficient water to get
them through the critical
period until next spring.
Without ample water, the
state's valuable winter veg-
etable production, citrus
crop and sugar production

Registration This Weekend


are in peril, Bronson said.
Many South Florida
farmers have been under
water restrictions since
November 2006 and some
are now questioning the via-
bility of even planting a fall
crop.
"This is a tough situa-
tion," Bronson said. "Think
about it; would you invest
hundreds of thousands of
dollars planting crops with
the prospects of having an
insufficient water supply to
keep them alive?"
Bronson stressed that
agriculture losses will no
doubt also show up in lost
tax revenues, unemploy-
ment and higher food
prices..
"It's not just about farm
profitability; it affects every-
one who eats and relies on
the economy," he said.


Polk Community College,
which is currently conduct-
ing registration every week-

Defective Tire Warning Issued
By Florida Attorney General


A consumer advisory
about potentially dangerous
tires that were imported
from China and sold from
2002 to 2006 for light trucks,
sports utility vehicles
(SUVs), and vans has been
issued by attorneys general
for several states, including
Florida.
More than 450,000 tires
may not meet the minimum
specifications provided to
the tire manufacturer and
therefore may be unsafe.
The tires were distributed in
the United States under the
names Westlake, Compass
and YKS.
The tires were made by
Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber
Co. Ltd. (HZ) and distrib-
uted by Foreign Tire Sales,
Inc., a small tire distributor
in New Jersey. Foreign Tires
Sales recently filed a non-
compliance report on cer-
tain tires with the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA).
Affected tires may lack a
sufficient layer of rubber
between their steel belts
which could cause tire
treads to separate, creating
potential safety hazards on
the road.
In the interest of public


safety, the attorneys general
have asked tire dealers not
to charge for the safety
inspections for these tire
brands. Consumers of these
particular tires should ,not
drive their vehicles for long
distances on hot roads until
the vehicles have been
checked.
If an inspection indicates
that a vehicle has unsafe
tires, the consumer should
immediately contact
Foreign Tire Sales, Inc., and
report the problem.
Because of the safety con-
cerns, a multistate working
group of attorneys general
has been created to investi-
gate the issue. Further infor-
mation can be obtained
from FTS's web site at
http://www.foreigntire.com
As part of general tire
safety, Attorney General Bill
McCollum reminded
Florida consumers to keep
the following tips in mind:
* At least once a month
and before every long trip,
inspect tires for patterns of
uneven wear that could
damage tires. Check tire
inflation pressure in accor-
dance with manufacturer
recommendations.
