Missing Bartow Girl, 15,

Found In DeFuniak Springs


Alyssa Frank, who had
.been missing from her
Bartow home since early
Monday morning, was.
found Tuesday in DeFuniak
Springs, Polk Sheriff Grady
Judd announced about 1:30
that afternoon.
'Alyssa is alive and well
and her family will be travel-
ing to DeFuniak Police
Department to reunite with
their daughter," he said.
However, the man'who
was with her, registered sex
offender William Mitchell,
was not captured. .
Judd asked for continued
assistance in helping to find
Mitchell, and told reporters
that Mitchell had taken
Alyssa, who is 15, to a Wal-
Mart in the community and
told her not to draw atten-
tion or he would kill her.
Mitchell allegedly left
Alyssa at the store, and at
approximately 12:30 p.m.,
DeFuniak police, acting on a
reported suspicious person,
found her. She told police
that Mitchell is armed. He is


still believed to be driving a
2000 Black Chevrolet
Lumina, tag number G02
5EL. His last known address
is 1413 Lane Avenue North,
Jacksonville, Fla.
"This investigation is far
from over. We are elated that
Alyssa has been found, but
we must still locate Mitchell
and bring him to justice,"
Sheriff Judd said. "Finding
her safe is a blessing from
God."
An Amber Alert was
issued for Alyssa after she
was reported missing by her
parents at 6:22 Monday
morning, from the family's
Bartow residence.
Indications were that the
teen had run away, Polk
County Sheriff Public
Information Officer Carrie
Rodgers said.
However, Rodgers said,
through their investigations,
detectives became con-
cerned that Alyssa might be
in the company of sexual
offender William Joe
Mitchell.


Mitchell is described as a
white male who provides
two birth dates, Jan. 13,
1961, and Feb. 14, 1960, is
5'11" tall and weighs
approximately 158 pounds,
and has brown hair and blue
eyes. He also has several tat-
toos, including the name
Lisa on his left arm, a cross,
and the word love tattooed
on his fingers. On his right
arm, he has a tattoo that
reads WE, and the name Bill.
Mitchell'was charged in
2002 with lewd or lascivious
battery on a victim 12-15
years old.
Though Mitchell has no
known connection with the
teen's family, detectives have
found evidence that Mitchell
and the teen have had con-
versations with one another
in the past, Rodgers said. It is
believed that Mitchell trav-
eled from Jacksonville to
Polk County.
Anyone with information
relating to this case is urged
to contact the Polk County
Sheriff's Office at 533-0344.


Dr. Rafael Nobo, Former Chief

Surgeon in Bartow, Dies at 87


By PEGGY KEHOE.
Managing Editor

Faced with conflicting
legal opinions and an
assumption that the case
will go to court no matter
which way they' voted,
Bartow City Commission
decided 3-2 Monday night to
have signatures verified on
petitions seeking a referen-
dum on a large development
on E.E Griffin Road.
For Commissioner Adrian
Jackson it came down to one
basic Constitutional princi-
ple: power belongs to the
people.
"I take great exception to
denying our citizens their
constitutional right to
address their government,"
Jackson said.
"What's it going to cost to
verify the signatures? We're.
going to deny the rights of
our citizens based on one
legal opinion?"
While the discussion of
Highland Cassidy's 835-
home development began at
6:30 with public comment, it
didn't end until about 9 p.m.
By that time what began as a
filled commission chamber
was mostly empty.
At the end of the other-
wise standard meeting,
Commissioner James
Clements moved that the
city clerk be directed to veri-
fy the petitions, .despite the


advice of newly-appointed
Interim City Attorney Sean
Parker. "If we err, I'd like to
err on the side of the citi-
zens," Clements said.
Following the legal advice
of Parker, both
Commissioner Leo
Longworth and Mayor Brian
Hinton voted against verify-
ing the 2,300 signatures of
Bartowans seeking a referen-
dum on the Wind Meadows
South development. It is the
largest planned so far on E.E
Griffin Road.
Surprising some in the
audience, Commissioner Pat
Huff, who voted to approve
the development on Sept. 4,
voted in favor of certifying
the petition signatures.
However, he hasn't
changed his position on the
development, Huff told The
Democrat Tuesday morning.
"I was certainly im-
pressed with the petition
effort that went on and we
do need to. hear what people
have to say." Although he
feels that the commission
already knows what they're
saying without counting the
petitions, Huff feels that it
should be done as a courtesy
to the signature gatherers in
recognition of all their hard
work.
"I still haven't changed my
position on the deveop-
ment," he said. Highland
Cassidy "has the right 'to


develop its land. They've
abided by our request to
eliminate commercial busi-
ness, and the duplexes are
gone. It's down to single
family homes" with green
space, trails and a park area.
"It's eventually going to
have to be settled in the
courts," Huff said. "I'd really;
just like to speed up to get to
that position.
"If the city commissiobin;
votes to rescind their posi>f
tion on the vote (approving.;
the development), I think it
will immediately go back t60;
court. We're going to have..
lawsuits one way or the-
other, whichever way we go(.::
"I just feel that if every'-
body wants to verify signa-
tures, let's verify," he reiterat-
ed. "I do feel that we already
have heard from electors; I
don't feel we're denying
them any rights."
Seven people who live in
that area spoke about the
Wind Meadows South devel-
opment; most oppose the
272-acre development.
However, Sharon Brooks,
who owns 10 acres across
from Phase 1 of Wind
Meadows, said that
"Highland Cassidy has lived
up to the promises to the
city and her. We need to take
a step back and be less emo-
tional. Yes or no is not as

Dr. Rafael Jacinto Nobo,
87, died of congestive heart
failure Monday, Sept. 29,
2007, at Good Shepherd
Hospice in Auburndale.
Dr. Nobo was born on
Oct. 24, 1919, in Havana,
Cuba, to Esther Pividal, who
raised him as a single moth-
er with the help of his
grandmother, Maria
Castella. He went on to
receive his medical degree
from the University of
Havana in 1944.
That same year, he mar-
ried Maria Palacio, and they
had two children. In 1960,
when Castro came to power,
Dr. Nobo moved his family
to the United States.
Beginning his career
:anew, and with little knowl-
edge of English, he became
a physician's assistant in a
Columbus, Ohio, hospital,
while revalidating his med-
Sical license.
"Doctors there knew
about his surgical exper-
tise," family members say.
"When a patient's heart
stopped during surgery,
they called on (Dr. Nobo) to
help resuscitate him with
the same technique that he
had successfully used once
during a surgery in Cuba to
save a 26-year-old woman's
life."


It worked, and his revali-
dation process was sped up.
SUpon the revalidation of
his medical license, Dr.
Nobo moved his family to
Polk County in 1963, where
he worked as chief surgeon
for Polk County General
Hospital until 1967, when
he joined the medical prac-
tice of Caswell, Coury,
Miller, Nobo, while also
serving as chief surgeon for
Bartow Memorial Hospital.
He would serve Bartow and
Polk County in that position
until his retirement in 1994.
Along with his wife,
Maria Theresa "Beba" Nobo,
Dr. Nobo is survived by a
daughter, Maria Garcia and
husband, Mario, of Tampa;
son, Dr. Rafael J. Nobo, Jr.,
and wife, Laura, of Bartow;
grandchildren, Mario Garcia
and wife, Tammy, Brian
Garcia and wife, Michelle,
Anna Barravecchio and hus-
band, Dan, Elena Lazaro
and husband, Danny, and
Christopher Nobo, all of
Tampa, Rafael Nobo and
wife, Lisa, of Orlando, and
SLaura Nobo of Jacksonville;
and nine great-grandchil-
dren, Brianna, Max, Ty,
Sophia, Michael, Danny,
Angelina, Jack, and Frankie.

enhanced cultural arts pres-
ence. Not only do the arts

MARCHING

FORWARD j


By Cadet Capt.
Renee Lee
and Cadet Staff Sgt.
Carrie Goad

The name Summerlin is
associated with history, tra-
dition and a high standard
in Polk County.
Streets, parks and build-
ings are graced with the
name of pioneer Jacob
Summerlin; Summerlin
Military Academy meets
that standard by adding
their newest event,
Sophomore Dining Out.
The first of 12 events was
held on Saturday, Sept. 22,
at the home of Todd and
Ann McCarty in Winter
Haven.
"Summerlin cadets are
fortunate to familiarize
themselves with a wide
range of activities and learn-
ing experiences," said
Commandant Mike Butler,
Summerlin principal.
"With programs such as
this one, we're able to offer
cadets opportunities that
extend their learning
beyond the classroom into
real life experience."
Hosted by the McCartys,
Sophomore Dining Out
combines military tradition,
fine dining and classroom
learning. Cadets are taught,


through their sophomore
English class, the art of eti-
quette. Moving beyond the
rudimentary niceties of
proper attire and decorum
at formal events, students
work in small groups to
research, plan and develop
their own special events "on
paper."
From costumed mas-
querades to sweet 16 par-
ties, wedding receptions to
promotional events for new
product lines, the events are
as varied as the interests of
the students. The exercise
involves skills in planning
and organization, team
building, writing, reading,
research and presentation.
The finaleof this training
is an opportunity to share a
special evening, complete
with a six-course gourmet
meal, planned and prepared
by Summerlin biology
teacher Ann McCarty.


"Eating and sharing food
and your life is important,"
said McCarty. "When cadets
get ready to leave our acad-
emy, they'll be prepared for
social interaction and be a
step ahead in their develop-
ment as young adults."
From hors d'oeuvres to
tornadoes of beef and
chicken kiev entries and
ending with a variety of
decadent desserts, this first
group of ten cadets enjoyed
a meal unique to most high
school students.
Joined by special guest,
Commandant Butler, cadets
found themselves enjoying
dinner time conversation
that included discussion of
travel and favorite books.
Cadets successfully com-
pleting all elements of the
Sophomore Dining Out pro-
gram receive a special rib-
bon for their efforts.

The University of South
Florida Lakeland took a
quantum leap forward this
year when it opened a new
library based on the infor-
mation commons model.
The new facility will help
USF Lakeland prepare for its
new campus and better
serve the needs of its stu-
dents and faculty.
"An information com-
mons is a unique learning
hub that integrates technol-
ogy, information, and
expertise to best strengthen
the teaching, research, and
learning opportunities that
occur within the university
community," said Dr. Alice
Murray, associate vice presi-
dent of administrative &
Academic Support Services.
The new library provides
a group study area with
tables, and a quiet study
area with comfortable
chairs and study carrels. The
wireless facility features net-
work connections and
power outlets conveniently
embedded at various loca-
tions in the floor. It also
houses a writing center and
open use computer lab.
"As the university grows,
having our own library is
critical and significant,"
says Marshall Goodman,
Ph.D., vice president and
campus executive officer,
USF Lakeland.
"The information com-
mons model helps us foster
the creation of knowledge
and support and strengthen
research, teaching and ser-
vice."
Associate librarian
Catherine Lavallee-Welch
says, "The new library's col-
lection is small but growing
quickly. We're proud to have
our first special collection,
which includes published
works of USF Lakeland fac-
ulty."
Starting a library from
scratch creates not only
excitement but also chal-
lenges.
"The biggest challenge is
having enough space to
hold everything I'd like to
acquire," says Lavall6e-
Welch.
In July alone the library
added more than 115 new
books and audio-visual
materials.
Students have reacted
positively to the new infor-
mation commons
approach.
"The new library is con-

venient in a number of
ways," says student Nathan
White. "It provides a meet-
ing place for me and my fel-
low students, and it has a
great staff that has helped
me with plenty of questions.
Student Alicia Cavazos-
Torres also gives the new
library high marks, "I enjoy
the amenable atmosphere
created by the extraordinary
efforts made by Lavall6e-
Welch, whom I have come
to know as one who wel-
comes challenges with phe-
nomenal efforts and warm
friendliness at the same
time. She strives to go above
and beyond what is asked,
and is always available to
help in any task.
"As an elementary educa-
tion major, it is highly
important for me to have
children's books at hand.
Ms. Lavall6e-Welch has
equipped the library with an
array of books that encom-
passes a diversity of litera-
ture, ranging from realistic
to fantasy fiction, from mul-
ticultural folktales to realis-
tic non-fiction."
According to Dr. Judith



The family of
Inez H. Lightsey
appreciates
every call and

Ponticell, associate vice
president of academic
affairs, a library plays a cru-
cial role in a community,
"Libraries provide what was
promised in the inscription
over the doorway of the
library at Thebes: 'medicine
for the soul.'"
As she looks to the future,
Lavall6e-Welch 'envisions
more room to grow and
acquire new books,
resources and special col-
lections, and offer addition-
al services - more medi-
cine for the soul.
"I also see a space where
people can get the help and
information they need from
start to finish of a project,
individually or as a group,"
she says.
"A place, for example,
where they can access the
software to practice and
make a presentation. I also
imagine a place to relax,
socialize, create relation-
ships and gain knowledge. A
place to have meetings and
to hear guest speakers. A
place to inform and enter-
tain."

Preservation of Historic Buildings Has Merit


There is a curious dichotomy of
thought when it comes to govern-
ment buildings.
On the one hand, there is the atti-
tude that any school, city hall, police
or fire station, or other government
building that is more than (pick a
number) 20, 30, 40, 50 years old is,
by definition, antiquated and inade-
quate.
Yet government at the state level,
and often at the local level, is com-
mitted to preserving and restoring
government buildings of historic
significance.
In Polk County, this newspaper
led a storm of protest when the
school board proposed to convert
the Old Homeland School property
into what was rumored to be a trav-
el trailer park.
Today, Homeland Heritage Park
has the beautifully restored school, a
church, a log cabin, and other build-


ings either preserved on or moved to was the fifth oldest school campus

No, not every old building has his-
toric significance. And it is not
always feasible to preserve and
restore those that do.
But there is a mindset in some cir-
cles in government that if a building
is old, it should be torn down and
replaced by something that is "new
and improved."
We are glad to see this assumption
challenged, time after time, and we
believe it is a worthy investment of
public funds to preserve part of our
architectural history.
In the final analysis, neither the
pyramids of Egypt nor the Great Wall
of China serve much of a purpose
today.
But they are among the historic
treasures of the world.
In a local setting, numerous
schools, court houses, municipal
buildings, and other historic struc-
tures are of similar importance.

INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD

Up in Smoke


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

God: Presumed Innocent


The guy who filed the suit
said he did so to make a
point.
He did.
I'm not sure the point was
the one he wanted to make.
He wanted to show how
absurd lawsuits have
become.
I'm not sure he put much
distance between himself
and those he sought to
ridicule.
In the state of Nebraska,
God has been sued.
God.
The Almighty.
Not a graven image.
God.
State Sen. Ernie
Chambers filed a suit against
God in September, charging
him with causing "wide-
spread death, destruction
and terrorization of millions
upon millions of Earth's
inhabitants."
Chambers is seeking a
permanent injunction
against God.
Asserting that he has cho-
sen the correct venue (that's
one of those things that
lawyers quibble over),
Chambers says that since


God is everywhere, He is in
Douglas County, Nebraska.
Chambers filed suit in
Lincoln, Nebraska, which I
suspect may have Honest
Abe turning over in his
grave.
In addition to allowing
the Four Horsemen of the
Apocalypse - "fearsome
floods... horrendous hurri-
canes, terrifying tornadoes"
- to run rampant over the
Earth, Chambers accuses
God of making terroristic
threats against himself and
his constituents.
"People might call it friv-
olous but if they read it
they'll see there are very
serious issues I have raised,"
Chambers told the press.
U.S. District Judge
Richard Kopf expressed
doubts over whether the suit
"has any legal basis whatso-
ever," but presumably is
keeping an open mind.
There come to mind
immediately questions
about the mechanics in the
case of Chambers vs. God.
For one thing, the
Defendant has to be served
with the suit, and while


those of us who believe in
God hope to see Him one of
these days, there is some
question over who would be
willing to accept the terms
necessary to deliver the
complaint right away.
And there is the humor-
ous issue of who will repre-
sent the Almighty in defend-
ing the suit, since He pre-
sumably first would search
the Kingdom of Heaven in
hope of finding a lawyer out
there somewhere on the
Heavenly Golf Course.,
George Burns, who was
almost as old as God when
he played the Almighty in
the movie "Oh God," in tak-
ing the oath as a witness,
declared that he did so "so
help me, Me."
Somehow, I don't think
that Chambers vs. God will
replace People vs. O.J., either
Part 1 or Part 2, as the Trial of
the Century.
On the other hand, God
probably would have a bet-
ter chance in the courtroom.
I suspect most people would
assume Him to be innocent.


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


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

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

FULL CIRCLE / By C. J. MOUSER

Frog, the Watchdog


For the first time in my life I
am living with a dog in the
house. Frog was a stray, he
needed a home and my
daughters and I needed a
watchdog, so it was a match
made in Heaven.
The first time I saw the dog,
the name Frog popped into
my head. He's a squat brindle
with a white yoke, two
bugged-out eyes and a blunt,
turned-up snout. If ever there
was a dog that looked like a
frog, it's Frog.
"He'll be a fine watch dog."
I assured my daughters.
"Strays always are."
Roughly three, days after
Frog came to live with us, a
thunderstorm blew through.
By the time I'd made the
rounds, checking windows
and turning off electronics, it
dawned on me that Frog had
gone missing.
"Where's the dog at?" I
asked my eldest, Jillian.
"I don't know."
"He's under your bed," my
youngest, Jenny, informed
me'. "I think he's afraid of the
thunder."
Sure enough, I found the
dog curled in a quivering ball
under my bed, whining each
time thunder rumbled.
"Boy," I said, "you're not
much use to me if you're going
to hide under the bed every
time the weather turns bad.
What if someone tries to break
in when it's raining?"
I grabbed him by the collar
and hauled him out, and he
sat there vibrating like a wash-
er on spin cycle. The second I
turned him loose he scram-
bled back under the bed.


Two days later I took the
dog outside to tend to his
business. We came around a
corner of the house and there
was a great big crane standing
there in the yard. I always take
it as a personal favor when
one of these big birds comes
to visit.
The moment Frog spotted
him, however, he took off run-
ning. Never mind that he was
on a leash, and had no way to
go but around - he simply
ran in terrified circles until he
had my legs firmly lassoed
and then tried to climb them.
"I don't mind telling you," I
said, as I untangled my legs,
"that you are bordering on
becoming a big disappoint-
ment." He gazed at me with
his bugged-out eyes, whined
pitifully, and had the common
decency to look ashamed of
himself.
Frog had one test left; the
beach. I tucked the obligatory
plastic bag in my pocket, just
in case, and Jenny and I
loaded Frog into the truck.
After acclimating himself
to walking on sand, Frog
seemed to take to the beach
just fine, until he happened to
notice the moving water. The
first time a wave broke near
him he went to howling and
yipping like he was being
burned alive.
"All right, that's it," I
growled. "This is embarrass-
ing."
We took Frog home and I
sat and brooded. I am of the
opinion that everybody pulls'
their weight, and I was not of a
mind to feed this dog unless
he was prepared to work for


his dinner.
"You better straighten up,"
I warned him. His tail went
between his legs and he stared
at me balefully.
It was well after midnight
when I was awakened to an
odd sound. It sounded like
distant thunder. I automati-
cally reached for Frog where
he lay next to me and found
that he was as rigid as.a poker,
sitting straight up on the bed.
It dawned on me that the
sound that had awakened me
was not thunder, but Frog
growling. The doorknob rat-
fled and the change in Frog
was startling. I knew it was
just Jillian coming in from
work, but Frog did not.
"Bo-woo-woo-woo-
woooooo!" he said, and the
walls reverberated with the
reassuring sounds of an alert
watchdog doing his job.
"It's just Jillian," I said,
stroking his neck, while my
heart swelled with pride. "And
you... are a fine dog," I mur-
mured. He wiggled all over
with pleasure at the tone of
praise in my voice.
As it turns out, when all the
chips were down, Frog did
what he was supposed to do:
alerted me to the possibility of
a potential intruder. I now feel
that Frog is earning his keep,
doing his duty,, earning his
kibbles and bits.
I feel safe.
I feel protected ... unless,
of course, I am attacked on
the beach by a crane in the
middle of a thunderstorm. I
suspect that in such a situa-
tion, I will be firmly on my
own.

important as ending the
arguing which has been
going on for two years."
In a battle of legal opin-
ions, attorney John Frost,
who lives on E.E Griffin
Road, cited cases that he
said support the legality of
petitions in regard to devel-
opments. Parker main-
tained his stance that
Florida Statute 163.3167(12)
prohibits petitions against
development orders.
Petitioners disagreed and
said that city ordinance


allowed it. Frost pointed out
that the city ordinance had
been on the books since
1995 and had not been
updated since the state law
was passed.
Frost also said that peti-
tioners, who call their group
Enough Already, were fol-
lowed and videotaped by
private investigators. He
also was told that former
Interim City Attorney John
Murphy had called School
Board Attorney Wes Bridges

Amphibian Festival runs
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., hosted
by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
The public is invited to
join in the festivities, featur-
ing live displays of snakes
and other reptiles and
amphibians. Participants
can take a guided tour of
gopher tortoise habitat with
biologists who reveal how
they capture these animals
for study.
Exhibits include interac-
tive demonstrations by
experts with the Gopher
Tortoise Council, a group
dedicated to conservation of
this cornerstone species.
Children and adults alike
will enjoy the reptile and
amphibian puppet show,
participate in the ever-pop-
ular frog-calling contest and
listen to show-and-tell
about a variety of subjects -


including invasive and non-
native reptiles and amphib-
ians that live in Florida.
"Here's a great opportuni-
ty to learn about the differ-
ences between venomous
and nonvenomous snakes
and broaden your perspec-i
tive on Florida's native tur-
tles and alligators," said
Kristin Wood, Chinsegut
Nature Center biologist and
director.
Native plants and natural
history books will be on dis-
play and available for pur-
chase. Vendors will be on
hand to sell food and drinks.
Teachers can receive in-ser-
vice credit for attending.
Because the area is a
wildlife and environmental
area, no pets except service
dogs are allowed.
To get to Chinsegut
Nature Center, go approxi-
mately seven miles north of
Brooksville on U.S. 41, turn
left on County Road 476 and
go one mile to the entrance
on the left.

SWFWMD Seeks Public

Comment On Lake Levels


Southwest Florida Water
Management District is
seeking public input about
proposed minimum flows
and levels (MFL) for Lake
Annie, Lake Bonnie, Dinner
Lake, Lake Lee, Lake Mabel,
Lake Starr and Venus Lake in
Polk County.
A minimum flow or level
is the limit at which further
water withdrawals will cause
significant harm to the water
resources and/or environ-
ment.
The district governing
board sets these limits as
part of achieving a balance
between meeting human
water needs and those of
Florida's natural systems.
Minimum lake levels are
used as guidelines in District
permitting programs, for
development of water
resource projects and as
information for develop-
ment bordering lakes.
A public workshop on
proposed MFL for the lakes
mentioned above will be
held Wednesday, Oct. 10, at
Lake Wales Municipal
Building, 201 Central
Avenue West.
The meeting will begin at
6 p.m. in the commission
chambers.


This meeting will provide
an important opportunity
for local governments, resi-
dents and others to be part
of the development of mini-
mum flows and levels for
area lakes.
Public comment gathered
at the meeting will be sum-
marized and presented to
the board when staff pre-
sents the recommended
MFL at the district's October
governing board meeting.
At that time, the govern-
ing board may choose to
adopt the MFL into district
rules.
Governing board meet-
ings are open to the public
where brief oral comments
are permitted on meeting
agenda items.
Written comments also
are welcome and can be
submitted via mail or e-mail
to Doug Leeper, senior envi-
ronmental scientist, no later
than Oct. 29.
The addresses are 2379
Broad Street, Brooksville, FL
34604-6899 or
Doug.Leeper@WaterMatters
.org.
For more information,
contact Doug Leeper at 352-

that he believes Murphy was
involved in getting them
removed from the Publix
parking lot.
"Political power is inher-
ent in the people," Frost
said, urging that the signa-
tures be counted. "What
you're trying to do is stop
the people. What's wrong
with letting your citizens be
heard?"
As the meeting moved on
to other business - the offi-
cial appointment of Parker
as interim attorney, and his
associate Drew Crawford as
interim assistant city attor-
ney; approval of annexing
approximately 6,527 acres
of Clear Springs land south
of Bartow and west of U.S.
Highway 17; proclamations
for Fire Prevention Week
Oct. 7-13 and Domestic
Violence Awareness Month
- the crowd began to thin.
Some of those attending
had been there to hear a
presentation on the possi-
bility of having the Polk
County Sheriff's Office pro-
vide police services for the
city. However during the
work session earlier, Hinton
said that Sheriff Grady Judd
had asked to be removed
from the agenda. He
thought it best to wait since
another controversial issue
was already on the night's
agenda. Judd had been
invited to address the com-
mission because of the
many rumors surrounding
the possibility of PCSO tak-
ing over Bartow police ser-
vices.
Also at the work session,
commissioners discussed
the possibility of a 90-day
moratorium on approving
new developments, to allow


time to look at zoning and
land use. Parker is to draw
up a proposal for their con-
siderations. Only
Longworth opposed the
moratorium, unless it was
for a shorter period, saying
it would send a message
that Bartow didn't want new
development.
Toward the end of the
regular meeting, Clements
said that while he respected
Parker's legal abilities, Frost
had put some doubt in his
mind about how to proceed
as far as counting the signa-
tures.
Parker, a former resident
of E.E; Griffin Road himself,
said he was not taking a
side, but that his role was to
see that the commissioners
"are informed as fully as
possible when making deci-
sions." He also realized that,
his opinion on the petition's
legality was "news that we
all knew would not be
received, well by the com-
munity."
SParker said that Crawford
began researching case law
and it was not until Tuesday
and Wednesday following
the delivery of the petitions
on Monday, Sept. 24, that
they had all the information
which led to his decision
that the petitions were pro-
hibited by state law.
After the vote approving
the petition verification,
Parker was asked what the
next step was. If they have
enough signatures, he said,
"the matter of relief goes
before you whether to
repeal what you voted on
Sept. 4 (approval of Wind
Meadows South); if you vote
not; it goes to the public for
a vote."

For ducks and other

Becoming a Citizen


When a person comes to the United States to stay, he
or she applies to be a lawful permanent resident.
Some people call this having a green card. (The cards
were once green. When they were changed, the name
stuck.)
Lawful permanent residents have certain rights and
responsibilities: They must pay taxes, but they cannot
vote in some elections or be a member of a jury. They are
protected by U.S. laws.
Citizens' responsibilities
All U.S. citizens have certain responsibilities. They
include:
*Support and defend the
Constitution against all
enemies.
* Stay informed about
issues that affect you.
i L* Vote.
* Respect and obey all
laws.

Meet the future in new TV series
The spitfire bird shoots acid
From its nose and lives in the
Antarctic rain forest - 100 million
years from now. The toraton might
live then, too. This descendant from
e the tortoise might become the
largest animal on Earth, weighing
132 tons.
These fantastic creatures appear
on the new Discovery Kids series, "The Future Is Wild."
In this animated series, kids from the 21st century are transported
millions of years in the future to experience life as it might become.
The show is an adventure series with real science behind it. Science
experts who work on the show include climate specialists and mammal
experts. The show deals in a fun way with the serious issues of climate
change.
Another creature that might appear millions of years from now is the
poggle, one of the last mammals still living on Earth. Poggles are small
rodents that rarely move. The poggle is actually livestock, kept by spi-
ders!

Duck flight
facts
* Ducks do not bump
into one another while fly-
ing. They are very good fliers.


AM* Lone ducks do not
drop out of the flying
C flock. They don't stop off
to go to the bathroom. They keep on
flying. The flock usually swoops
down to the ground as a group. To
eat and rest, they stop at wetlands
and fields along the way.

S* Ducks often fly in a V
formation, with one
behind the other. It takes
less energy to fly behind another
duck than to fly alone.

�* Ducks fly in flocks
because there is safety in
numbers. Flying together
also means there are more eyes to
look for food and danger.

* Ducks fly in larger
groups during fall and
winter migration than
they do at their spring and summer
breeding grounds.

S �* There is not one
leader who flies in front of
the flock all of the time.
They often switch leaders.



The Mini Page thanks Dr. Bob Blohm,
chief of migratory birds, and Dr. Pam
Garrettson of the Population and Habitat
Assessment Section of the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, for help with this story.


Meet the mallards


Meet "Susie" Mallard. We will give her a
name and tell you a story about her and
her mate. Like all female ducks, her color
is a dull brown. This helps her hide and
blend in with the wetlands. Susie also has
some white and blue on her wing feathers.
At this time of year, Susie is flying
south with other ducks. Male ducks
are flying south, too. The flock might
settle in the warmer wetlands of
Arkansas.


Meet "Drake" Mallard. Like all duck
males, he is more colorful than Susie.
His green head and neck make him
attractive to her.
While wintering in the south,
Susie chooses Drake as her mate. In
the spring, Susie and Drake will
migrate no-th. Susie will lead Drake
back to the wetland in Canada
where she hatched. He will help
defend their wetland against other
ducks.
Then he will fly away, and Susie
probably will not see him again.
Susie will sit on the nest for three
weeks until her eggs hatch.
Susie and Drake will pick new
mates the next winter.


I 4


More duck
Basics
S* There are about 120
different kinds of ducks.
There are more mallards
than any other kind.

* Female ducks are
called hens. Males are called
drakes, and babies are
called ducklings.

. * Ducks sometimes
mate with different types of ducks.
The ducklings usually look a little
like both species. They are called
hybrids.




S* Duck hens can lay
from six to 12 eggs. Lots
of birds and animals eat
ducklings. When ducklings hatch,
they can't fly, but they are covered
with down, and can walk, swim and
feed themselves. For five to eight
weeks, they follow their mother. This
is called imprinting. When they
have fully grown feathers,
they can fly.


* Some ducks, like the
dabbling ducks pictured
above, get their food from
near the top of the water. They eat
plants and insects. Others dive and
swim under water for fish and other
animals.

Apply For Disability Online


ByGREGELKINS
Social Security Public
Affairs Specialist
Lakeland

Applying for disability
benefits from Social
Security is easier than it's
ever been before.
Until recently, the dis-
ability report had to be
completed manually. Now,
applicants can save time by
completing it online and
sending it to us electronical-
ly.
An important part of
* applying for disability bene-
fits for adults is completing
the adult disability report,
or form 3368.
The report asks impor-
tant questions about appli-
cants' disabling condition,
medical records, health care
provider contact informa-
tion, and information about
your educational and work
history.
This information is
important to help staff
determine disability.
There are two versions of
,the adult disability report
that can be completed
online, depending on


whether you are the person
applying for benefits or a
professional representative.
If you are applying for
disabiJity benefits on your
own behalf, you can com-
plete the online disability
report at www.socialsecuri-
ty.gov/disabilityreport.
If you are representing a
disabled person, you can
complete our professional
version of the report.
Examples of representa-
tives include attorneys and
non-attorney representa-
tives, employees of govern-
ment agencies, social agen-
cies, hospitals, nursing care
facilities, homeless shelters,
or non-profit agencies, and
anyone else who assists
applicants in applying for
disability benefits.
If you are representing
someone and want to apply
for benefits on his behalf,
you can go to www.socialse-
curity.gov/i3368prohelp /
Keep in mind that in
addition to the disability
report, staff also need a
completed application for
disability benefits.
The online application
can be found at

Obesity has become a growing concern
in the United States, and Aqui Chiropractic
Clinic in Bartow is ready to make it less of a
concern for some in the area.
By taking cues from a popular television
reality show "The Biggest Loser," the clinic
will hold the "Healthy Heroes Weight Loss
Challenge."
The challenge will consist of two teams of
eight to 10 contestants, and each team will
receive guidance from a nutritionist and fit-
ness trainer.
The challenge will run for 10 weeks with
weigh-ins weekly. Each week, contestants
will earn points based on the amount of
weight loss and a prize will be given to the
contestant who loses the most weight.


The team with the most weekly weight.
loss will receive bonus points for each team
member, and at the end of eight weeks, the
top four point leaders will be eligible to win
the grand prize.
Prizes include massages, spa packages,
cooking packages, weekend trips, and cash
prizes.
The commitment for members is 90 min-
utes a day, five days a week, and a $125
entry fee.
Contestants must apply by Oct. 13, and
the challenge will begin with interviews on
Oct. 20.
For information, call the clinic at 534-
3288.


New Rules For Lifeline


Florida Public Service Commission (PSC)
approved new rules to benefit customers
eligible for Lifeline Assistance (Lifeline) ser-
vice by expediting the process to enroll
them in the program.
Lifeline provides discounts of $162 annu-
ally to eligible Floridians for telephone ser-
vice.
A state agency that determines a person
is eligible for Lifeline service is also required
by Florida statute to immediately forward
the information to the PSC for automatic
enrollment.
The decision comes as the automatic
enrollment process, begun in April 2007,
passes the 50,000 application mark.
In the automatic enrollment process,
applicants for programs administered by
the Department of Children and Families


(DCF) are asked if they are interested in
receiving a $13.50 monthly discount on
their phone service.
If they check yes on the DCF application
and are approved for a DCF program, their
information is electronically sent to the PSC
which forwards that information to the
appropriate telephone company for enroll-
ment in the Lifeline program.
In accordance with Florida law, all'
Lifeline applicant information is handled in
a confidential manner.
"The Florida Public Service Commission
and the Department of Children and
Families continue to work together to bring
Lifeline service to eligible Floridians," said
PSC Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.

New Fee Schedule for Recreational

Hunting and Fishing Goes into Effect


A new fee schedule is in
effect for all recreational
licenses issued by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission'
(FWC).
During its 2007 session,
the Florida 'Legislature
passed a bill to increase the
fees for all recreational salt-
water and freshwater fishing
and hunting licenses.
Hunting license fees were
last increased in 1979 and.
fishing license fees in 1989.
Bob Wattendorf, who
heads up marketing in the'
FWC's Division of
Freshwater Fisheries
Management, said, "When
fees for fishing licenses were
last increased, in 1989, gaso-
line cost 89 cents a gallon.
But even with the new fee
increases, the cost of hunt-
ing and fishing in Florida
falls below the median costs,
for the other 49 states.
"Also, the percentage of
increase is well below the
rise in the cost of living seen
since 1989," he added.
All the fees from these
licenses go back into con-
serving fish and wildlife
resources and benefit
anglers and hunters.
The increased revenue,
expected to total $10 million
annually within four years,
will not create new pro-
grams, but will offset a pre-
dicted $12.5-million deficit
by 2010, said Sandra Wilson,
director of finance and bud-
get at FWC.
; In addition to issuing the
licenses, FWC is charged
with directly conserving fish
and wildlife resources, and it
creates and enforces rules
and regulations regarding
hunting and fishing in the
state as well as promoting
boating safety and access.
Florida remains the num-
ber-one fishing destination
in the United States, accord-
ing to the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service's 2006
national survey. In addition,
Florida ranks number-one
in the nation for its $11 bil-
lion generated annually
through hunting, fishing and
wildlife-viewing activities
throughout the state.


FWC presented its find-
ings to the Legislature earlier
this year. The projected
deficit would leave revenue
streams for marine fisheries,
freshwater fisheries and
hunting in jeopardy. In addi-
tion, programs already in
place, such as those for pan-
thers, manatees and other
imperiled species, would
need funding to keep pace
with increased costs.
FWC hired Southwick
Associates, a private firm
specializing in fish-aid-
wildlife economics, to deter-
mine the impact from an
increase in fees.
"The optimal price for
each sport fishing and hunt-
ing license issued was scien-
tifically determined,"
Wattendorf said.
"Consideration for the
increase included the effect
on angling and hunting par-
ticipation, customer satis-
faction, tourism and public
support for conservation."
However, the new fees
were kept to the minimum
necessary to offset the pro-
jected deficit, rather than at
a level that would maximize
revenue. Compared to the
price of movies, golf, bowl-
ing and other forms of recre-
ation, fishing and hunting
fees remain very affordable,
especially when viewed as
.an unlimited, year-round
privilege, Wattendorf said.
FWC also carefully con-
sidered the impact on feder-
al aid for sport fishing and
wildlife restoration, which
comes to Florida based on
the certified number of
hunting and fishing license
holders and size of the state.
Further research consisted
of consulting focus groups
and surveying individual
hunters and fishermen
across Florida.
With all of these findings
before them, legislators
voted to increase the fees,
beginning Oct. 1..As a result,
programs in danger of losing
funding, such as freshwater
hatcheries, law enforcement
patrols and saltwater fish-
eries stock assessments, will
be able to continue at cur-
rent levels of service.


"It will allow our habitat
restoration, fish stocking,
law enforcement and out-
reach programs to continue
without cuts," Wattendorf
said.-
"We can't guarantee that
some things won't be
trimmed in the future, but
the expectation is the license
fee increases will prevent us
from going backwards."
Recreational licenses may
be purchased online at
MyFWC.corm, or by calling 1-
888-FISH FLORIDA (347-
4356) or 1-888-HUNT
FLORIDA (486-8356), or
from numerous sporting
goods retailers and at tax
collectors' offices. If licenses
are not purchased at tax col-
lectors' offices, additional
processing fees will be
applied.

Musings From God's Penman


Dancing With the Squirrels


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

I was sitting in my chair
going through a large cook-
book that had belonged to
my grandmother when the
Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage came into the
room.
'Are you reading a cook-
book?" she asked.
Let me stop here and just
start from the beginning.
It all started several
months ago when my wife
and I tucked ourselves in for
a nice evening sleep. I had
just gotten to the point
where I was ready to drift off
into la-la-land when I felt a
sharp pain in my right rib
cage.
Ever since God created
Eve from one of Adam's ribs,
wives have been poking men
in this delicate part of his
anatomy.
"Did you hear that noise?"
she whispered.
My only sensation at the
time was the pain in my
right rib cage. I began to say
something and then she
shouted in my ear, "Shhhhh,
there it is again."
When the buzzing in my
ear subsided, I began to hear
the sound that had alarmed
her so. It was a faint scratch-
ing noise coming from the
ceiling.
Straining our ears, we
could not determine what
was making that noise. I sug-
gested it was a snake and my
wife hit me with her pillow.
I am so glad the nightlight
is on the stand on my side of
the bed, far from her reach.
The scratching continued
all night long, as well as the
guessing as to the nature of
the scratching. Our guessing


ranged from my snake
(which I only mentioned
once for obvious reasons) to
mice and then to termites.
During the next few days,
the scratching not only con-
tinued, but also seemed to
accelerate. By this time, it
sounded like a dance party
going on in our attic every
evening.
It was then that the ulti-
matum came to Yours Truly.
"If you don't do some-
thing about that noise in the
attic," my wife stated most
emphatically, "I'm going to
know the reason why."
Ultimatums like this do
not really make sense, at
least to me.
I could do several things
about the noise in the attic.
For one, I could ignore it.
However, if I ignore it I am
quite sure my wife will not
ignore me.
After vigorous investiga-
tion on my part, I discovered
the source of all that noise in
the attic. We had been invad-
ed by, of all things, squirrels.
I made this discovery quite
by accident.
Right after supper, I was
.out in the backyard doing
something and I noticed a
squirrel running toward our
house. I did not pay too
much attention to it, and
then the squirrel ran up the
wall of our house and disap-
peared under the eaves.
Upon investigation, I dis-
covered a small hole at that
part of our house.
When some people look
at a squirrel, they see a cute,
fluffy little critter.
When I see a squirrel, I see
a terrorist. " "
Now that I knew what the
noise in the attic was, I set


about to deal with it. The
first thing I did was patch up
the hole allowing the squir-
rels access to my attic. With
all the confidence of a hus-
band who is basically
insane, I reported to my wife
that I had solved our "noise
in the attic" problem.
I love it when a plan
comes together.
That night I planned to
have the first quiet night in
about a month. As soon as
we settled down, the noise in
the attic began.
The next day I discovered
the squirrels had dug out the
hole and resumed their
access to our attic. I fixed
them by filling that hole with
Brillo pads from the kitchen.
They fixed me by digging
out all those Brillo pads.
Somebody told me squir-
rels hate mothballs and if I
put mothballs in the attic,
they would stay away.
I did it, and all night long
the squirrels played marbles
with those mothballs.
Some people say squirrels
are very smart. However,
don't you believe it. They
think every night is Saturday
and they have a dance party
every night.
I must say I am not into
dance. I have biblical feet
when it comes to dancing.
My left foot never knows
what my right foot is doing.
I have tried everything to
deal with this squirrel in the
attic problem.
I tried reasoning with
them.
"Look here, squirrels," I
reasoned, "squirrels live in
trees, not attics."
They just sat there looking
at me with their big fluffy
tails flinching behind them.


Then they scampered up the
house wall and into the attic.
I have also tried bribery.
"Look here, squirrels," I
bribed, "I will give you all the
nuts you can eat if you leave
my attic tonight."
Then I put a cache of nuts
way in the back of our prop-
erty under some very nice
trees.
They took all of my nuts
and ran up my house wall
and back into the attic.
Now, getting back to that
cookbook.
"Are you reading a cook-
book?" my wife asked.
"Yes," I said in a very calm
manner, "I'm looking up
grandmother's recipe for
squirrel pot pie."
I was reminded of a verse
in the Bible: "Even so the
tongue is a little member,
and boasteth great things.
Behold, how great a matter a
little fire kindleth!" James 3:5
(KJV).
It is not the big things in
life that give us the most
trouble; rather it is the accu-
mulation of all those small
things.

Gospel Music Artist Angela McKeithen

Performing in Fort Meade in November


Angelina McKeithen of
Nashville will perform in
concert Sunday, Nov. 4, at 7
p.m., at First United
Methodist Church in Fort
Meade.
Ms. McKeithen is the third
generation of performers in
the McKeithen family lin-
eage. Her singing career
started at the age of 3 with
her family's gospel music
group, The McKeithens,
when her grandmother
requested she sing her first
solo during her family's con-
cert in 1976.
At age 7, she began play-
ing drums for the group, and
at age 9, she began perform-
ing with the band playing
the acoustic guitar. At age 13,
she brought the harmonica
to center stage, for which
she is nationally known.
Then, at the age of 14, she
began singing and playing
full-time with her family.
Ms. McKeithen's song-
writing began at a young
age. She was the youngest
known published writer at
ASCAP when she and her
mother, Dixie, co-wrote "Let
the Hallelujahs Roll," as per-
formed by John Starnes on
the Gaither Video
Homecoming Series.
She later co-wrote the
theme song, "Spark A
Flame," for the Spark A
Flame Concert Series. She
has been an exclusive writer
for the Centergy Music
Group.
She is a BMI award-win-
ning songwriter,' having


songs recorded by Gold City,
Pfeifers, John Starnes,
Jessica King, McKeithen and
Company, and N'Harmony.
After 25 years of traveling
with her family, Ms.
McKeithen is in solo min-
istry, which includes per-
forming, instrumentation,
songwriting, producing, and
ministering. Along with her
singing voice, her instru-
mental talents and abilities
include the harmonica, gui-
tar, piano, mandolin, bass,
banjo, and drums.
She also has formed her
own singing group, Route 77.
The group's name is formed
from seven being God's per-
fect number, and the route
of Christians being God's
route, thus she and Route 77
have begun a new journey.
The group, from
Nashville, consists of multi-
talented individuals who are
not only vocalists, but
instrumentalists, songwrit-
ers, and performers, as well.
Ms. McKeithen's accom-
plishments include 2004

Reflections on Faith



Let's Stop Listening to the Wrong People


By ROGER CAMPBELL

AWisconsin minister who
had resigned as pastor of a
church he had served for 11
years shared his sad story
with me.
During his time as pastor,
the church had grown from
only a few members to a
large thriving congregation.
He had enjoyed his work for
more than a decade, but
then one of the members of
the church began to criticize
him, finding fault with his
preaching and pastoral
work.
: Finally, wearied by the
attacks of his critic, he had
quit.
Hearing the former pas-
tor's heartbreaking story
reminded me of a paragraph
in the book, "The Tongue -
Angel or Demon?" that has
been played out again and
again in too many churches:
"Contentious tongues have
hindered the work of God a
thousand times over. Critical
tongues have broken the
hearts of many pastors."
Here, standing before me,
was living proof of author
George Sweeting's accurate
observation.
But ministers aren't the
only targets of cruel critics.
Fault-finders exist every-
where. And they're always
engaged in their favorite
pastime: cutting down all
who fail to live up to their
exaggerated expectations.

Oliver Wendell Holmes
said, "The human race is
divided into two classes -
those who go ahead and do
something and those who sit
still and inquire why it was-
n't done another way."
When we find ourselves
unable to please our critics,
we're in good company.
Some grumbled when our
Lord healed sick people on
the Sabbath, and others
complained because they
felt He spent too much time
with sinners. Judas was
upset when He allowed a
woman to anoint His head
with an expensive ointment,
saying it should have been
sold and the money given to
the poor.
Judas didn't care about
the poor, but linking his
protest to the needy made
him look good. Those who
focus on faults are always
looking for ways to justify
their caustic comments that
injure innocent people.
Peter said we are most like
our Lord when we take criti-
cism patiently (1 Peter 2:20 -
21); but that's a tall order.
Few aspire to follow the path
of humility and self-denial.
Opportunities to demon-
strate the reality of our faith
when under fire abound
because there is never a
shortage of critics. These

negative nuisances, are
everywhere, continually
searching for something
wrong with those who are
busy serving.
They are always first to
hear of anything wrong and
feel it their duty to spread
the word. For centuries,
their cruel tongues have
kept ministers on the move,
contributing to what a major
news magazine once called
"the game of musical pul-
pits."
Are you a victim of critics
in your church or communi-
ty?
Lovingly tune them out.
Even the moon couldn't
keep shining if it paid atten-
tion to barking dogs.
The discouraged
Wisconsin pastor now real-
ized he had been listening to
the wrong people. Many in
his church had appreciated
his selfless and devoted
work, but he hadn't heard
their expressions of love
because he was so preoccu-
pied with the cutting words
of the one who chose to
focus on his faults.
Let's stop listening to the
wrong people.
Those who love, support,
and encourage us deserve
our attention.
These positive people are
gifts from God, given to
enable us to live in the sun-
shine - no matter what our
critics say.

Zolfo Springs Offers Cracker Experience


By SHARE DERRICKSON.
Community Correspondent.
ZOLFO SPRINGS - Mike
and Betsy Damboise have
been ranchers all their lives.
It is, they say, often a hard
life, especially in these times
when ranchers are finding
themselves forced to diversi-
fy in order to remain prof-
itable.
Farmers and ranchers
face exorbitant inheritance
taxes, Mike said, and more
and more owners are look-
ing for ways to keep ranches
in the family and not have to
sell off precious acreage' in
order to pay sometimes mil-
lions of dollars to Uncle
Sam.
The skyrocketing value of
agricultural land places an
added burden, as while the
tax burden on the land
increases, the amount of
revenue generated on that
land does not.
It was with this in mind
that last year, Mike and
Betsy opened the Cracker
Trail Arena - an arena for
public events such as rodeos
- away to use their assets to
supplement their income.
But, neither Mike or Betsy
thinks small.
The success of the arena
has them setting their sights
on an even bigger plan for a
new kind of attraction-
one far more unique and
original than other amuse-
ment parks in Florida. It is
an idea whose time has
come, if you believe the
praise of those involved with


economic development and
historical preservation of the
area, such as the Florida
Freshwater Frontier.
On more than 2,000 pris-
tine and scenic acres about
10 miles east of U.S.
Highway 17 outside Zolfo
Springs, the Damboise fami-
ly is working to build the
Cracker Trail Wildlife Ranch
and Rodeo Tour - the first
of its kind in the area. And,
Mike explained, this tour
will come with a unique spin,
- one that will help tap into
the nation's growing eco-
tourism industry.
Mike and Betsy, a couple
with plenty of Southern hos-
pitality and down-home
charm, want people to feel
welcome. Mike, a man with a
gift for storytelling, said their
vision is to create something
entertaining, engaging, and
that will help educate people
about how a real working
ranch operates.
As he and Betsy drove a
reporter on their ATV
through the rugged country
of swamps and pastures
filled with grazing animals
and meadows filled with
wildflowers, one could see
how such a tour would
appeal to those seeking to
interact with nature.
Since 1993, Mike has
worked as a rodeo announc-
er and also has helped oper-
ate the ranch that has been
in Betsy's family for five gen-
erations. "We are so grateful
to Betsy's parents, Don and
Darlene Davis, for encourag-
ing us and supporting us on


this."
Diversifying, Mike said, is
one way to help keep the
ranch in the family, and one
way to keep it from being
developed, spoiling its nat-
ural beauty.
"The rodeo announcing
has been a vital part of our
income," he said, adding
that he and Betsy were work-
ing seven days a week. The
inception of the Cracker
Trail Arena was one way to
bring in extra income and
allow the family to have a lit-
tle time off. The arena took
off and has hosted many
events over the past year.
"What this new tour is
going to do is be an eco-tour
with a huge twist," Mike
said. "First of all, not a lot of
people realize that Florida is
the oldest frontier in
America. It was the first
place in North America to
have cattle and horses," he
said. "Florida is the oldest
cattle and cowboy country,
is what I say.
"What we had to do as a
family ranch was find a way
to tap into the tourist dollar,"
he said, adding that tours
should start around January.
But dollars are not the only
reason for opening up the
ranch as an interactive tour
for others.
Mike and Betsy hope to
educate people about how a
ranch operates, how rodeo
animals are treated with dig-
nity and respect, and how
important it is to protect
rapidly-diminishing unde-
veloped land.


"Many ranches are doing
eco-tourism all over the
country now," he said. Mike
said he and Betsy are going
to tell a bit about the history
of Florida being the first
frontier.
"But I am going to do this
with a huge twist," Mike
said.
. Mike, you see, is a cowboy
poet who can break into
verse the old story-telling
way. His poems reflect the
life and times of ranch hands
and rodeo - two things he
knows well, and soon, he will
have his first album out -
all stories accompanied with
a twang of country and blue-
grass. Mike plans on incor-
porating his poetry into the
tour.
The tour will'include a
"swamp buggy ride" through
the meadows and wetlands
where eco-lovers can delight
in the wealth of wildlife that
inhabit the ranch - deer,
raccoons, indigenous birds,
alligators, horses, and of
course, cows of all colors
and kind that seek shelter in
the shade under the Spanish
moss and oaks, or cool
themselves in one of several
watering holes on the ranch.
Mike plans on building a
boardwalk that goes through
a marsh to a pine island -
the home of an old still that
once produced moonshine.
Those on the tour will
experience a bit of a rodeo as
well, as Mike and Betsy will
educate those unfamiliar
with the event. "There are
many misconceptions about


rodeo," Mike said. "We want
people to see that these ani-
mals are treated humanely
and are well-cared for,"
But, besides being educa-
tional, the tour will include
some days-of-yore fun as the
swamp buggy experiences a
holdup for a bag of "gold"
one of the passengers is
selected to carry.
"We will put names in a
hat and pull one name each
tour. That person is our spe-
cial guest and will get to
carry the gold," Mike said.
He explained that all pro-
ceeds from the special
guest's ticket will go to caus-
es he and Betsy feel strongly
about - the Epilepsy
Foundation, and special-
needs children. "We find this
is another way to give back."
The tours, which will
operate from early fall to late
spring, will end with a bar-
becue of steak and chicken
and other down-home cook-
ing. "We want this to be the
best experience possible and
it gives people a chance to
see what a real working
ranch is like," he said.
Eventually, Mike and
Betsy plan on building a
"Road Kill Museum" and a
steak house restaurant. The
museum will serve as the
tour office and will offer gifts
for people to purchase to
help commemorate their
adventure - right down to a
cowboy hat - and of course,
a copy pf some real cowboy
poetry on a CD.,
To Betsy and Mike, the
tour is more than a way to


keep the land in the family
- it is a way to preserve
their way of life.
"Even if I had $20 million,
this is still what I would want
to do - live here - raise my
family this way," Mike said.
He and Betsy say that they
feel very fortunate to look
out over the meadows and
see land in its purest state.
"We think this is a wonderful
way to share all this beauty
with others," he said.
Florida, Mike and Betsy
said, is more than theme
parks. "This is real life - a
working cattle ranch -
something they can see and
experience firsthand."

One Potato,


Two Potato


Out of My Range by Dawn Wade


I love potatoes.
They are without a doubt
my favorite side dish.
Not only are they yummy
baked, they can be boiled,
fried, roasted and grilled,
and still taste delicious.
This week we celebrate
the versatile potato with
dishes from
www.meals.com.

Carnation Mashed Potatoes
A side dish everyone will
be raving about. The key
ingredient is evaporated
milk. -
6 medium (about 2
pounds total) potatoes,.
peeled and cut into 1-inch
chunks
1 cup Nestld Carnation
Evaporated Milk
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
or margarine
Place potatoes in large
saucepan. Cover with water; .
bring to a boil. Cook over
medium-high heat for 15 to
20 minutes or until tender;.
drain.
Return potatoes to
saucepan; add evaporated
milk and butter. Beat with
hand-held mixer until
smooth. Season with salt
and ground black pepper. -
Chopped green onions,
chopped parsley or cooked,
crumbled bacon may be
added to mashed potatoes.
For variety: prepare potatoes as above. Melt butter in
saucepan; add 1 clove finely chopped garlic and 8 ounces
finely chopped mushrooms. Cook over medium heat for 4
to 5 minutes or until liquid has evaporated.
Add potatoes and evaporated milk; beat potatoes with
hand-held mixer until smooth and thoroughly mixed with
mushrooms. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
Serving Size: 6

Scalloped Potatoes
Evaporated milk and grated Parmesan cheese combine
with fresh boiled potatoes and a dash of ground black pep-
per to make a rich and aromatic bowl of the old-fashioned
favorite, scalloped potatoes.
2 lbs. (about 6 medium) potatoes, peeled and thinly
sliced
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup chopped onion
3 tablespoons'all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 can (12 fluid ounces) Nestle Carnation Evaporated Milk
1 cup water
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350� E Grease 11 x 7-inch baking dish.
Place potatoes in large saucepan. Cover with water; bring
to a boil. Cook over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes;
drain. Set aside.
Heat butter in same saucepan over medium heat. Add
onion; cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 2 minutes or until
onion is tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Gradually stir
in evaporated milk and water.
Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.
Remove from heat. Arrange potatoes in prepared baking
dish; pour milk mixture over potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender and
cheese is light golden brown.
For a twist on the traditional, spice up your scalloped
potatoes with a combination of chopped ham, red bell pep-
per and/or diced green chiles to the potatoes prior to bak-
ing.
Or, add 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese to the
milk mixture after it is removed from the heat and top the
dish with additional shredded cheddar cheese in place of
Parmesan cheese.
Serving Size: 8

Crispy Pesto Potatoes
Add a touch of Italian to your potatoes.

drained

spoons.
Flatten immediately so pancakes are about 4 inches in

Potato & Cheese Patties with Peanut Sauce
This recipe is typical of Ecuadorian Creole cuisine.
Usually served on a bed of shredded lettuce and carrots,
these delicious potato cakes can be an appetizer, side dish
or main course.
They are accompanied in different ways: topped with.
fried eggs, garnished with strips of avocado and tomatoes,
served with a dish of aji (hot pepper salsa), or with fried
bass, hot white rice and assorted vegetables, or with slices
of fried, ripe plantains and peanut sauce on the coast.
In Quito, Ecuador, the roads are full of local Indians
cooking these patties over hot coals in portable braziers
(large metal bowls or boxes with a grill for cooking that hold
burning coals).
1-1/2 Ibs. Yukon Gold or Idaho potatoes, peeled, quar-
tered (about 3 medium)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
2 tablespoons annatto oil *, divided
1/4 cup finely chopped onion

zarella cheese

oz.) iceberg garden salad mixture
1 tablespoon canola or extra virgin olive oil


1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup Ecuadorian Peanut Sauce
1 large hard boiled egg, chopped

Add salt; bring to a boil. Cook until soft (about 30 minutes);
drain thoroughly and mash with potato masher. Add white
pepper; mix well..
Heat one tablespoon annatto oil in small skillet over low
heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 to 5
minutes or until very soft. Add onions to mashed potatoes;
mix well. Let mixture cool for about 10 minutes. Stir in
cheese. Season with salt, if desired.
Scoop potato mixture with 1/3 cup measure and shape
into 8 patties about 3 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.
Place on large plate or baking sheet. Cover with plastic
wrap; refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
Heat nonstick griddle or large skillet over medium heat.
Brush one side of patties with remaining annatto oil. Place
on griddle and cook until browned and crispy on the bot-
tom, about 8 to 10 minutes. Brush tops with additional
annatto oil; turn over with spatula to brown on other side.
Patties should have crispy brown crusts with tender insides.
Place shredded lettuce and carrots, olive oil and lemon
juice in medium bowl; mix to coat..
Line platter with salad; top with patties. Top patties with
Peanut Sauce and chopped egg. Serve with additional
Peanut Sauce, if desired.
* You can make annatto oil by heating 2 tablespoons
annatto (achiote) seeds in 1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil over
low heat for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until oil
turns bright orange.
Store in small jar or container. Or, you can substitute 2
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil combined with 1 tea-
spoon ground annatto or sweet paprika for the 2 table-
spoons annatto oil.
Yields 4 servings (2 patties each)
