RIue 11ut jown for Inspection


After Mishap at Bartow Carnival


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

A carnival rides inspector for the
Florida Dept. of Agriculture and
Consumer Services ordered a Ferris
wheel at the Bartow Halloween carni-
val shut down until he could inspect
the device after a malfunction
Thursday night.
The inspector, Allen Harrison, is
inspecting a carnival in Jacksonville
this week, and has not yet filed his
report. A spokesman for the depart-
ment in Tallahassee said information
is still being collected.
Bartow Police Sgt. Gerad Hunt
investigated the incident, in which an
11-year-old girl was trapped -
upside down - in a Ferris wheel cart
with the door open.
The child, 11-year-old Sydney
Watkins of Highland City, was fright-
ened but uninjured. Witnesses said
she was caught in the inverted car for


30 to 45 minutes, calling for help and
saying that she was slipping.
The car she was in was suspended
an estimated 25 to 30 feet above the
ground.
The ride, a Rock-n-Plane with
eight cars (also called cages), secures
passengers with both a seatbelt or
bar and a door which fastens from
the outside, riders said.
The Bartow Fire Dept. sent its lad-
der truck to the scene, at IMC-Agrico
Park north of the Bartow Civic Center,
and Firefighter Jeff Fussell secured
the door to the car with a locking pin,
after which the ride operator lowered
the car to the ground.
Hunt interviewed the owner of the
ride, John Jinright of JCJ Amusement,
who lives in Gibsonton, and the oper-
ator of the ride, David Simmons, also
of Gibsonton.
Simmons said he attempted to
stop the ride to allow the occupants
to step out of the car. Mimi Haggard,


a passenger in the car with Sydney,
got out safely, but the 11-year-old
was not as fortunate.
In his report, Hunt wrote:
"He advised as the ride was slow-
ing he pulled the safety pin out in
order to allow the door to open so the
victim could get out of the cage when
the ride stopped.
"However, when he attempted to
hold the cage it continued to elevate
and he was not able to hold the cage.
"Once the ride started elevating,
the cage door came open."
Simmons summoned Jinright for
help.
Jinright said he notified the Dept.
of Agriculture and ' Consumer
Services, which inspects carnival
rides, and was instructed to shut
down the ride until it could be
inspected the next day.

information for this story.)


Putnam Hopes to Reestablish


People's Trust in U.S. Congress


OBy BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

Congress' approval rating
is at record-setting lows, but
U.S. Representative Adam
Putnam of Bartow hopes
that can be turned around.
Putnam, third-ranking
House Republican, spoke to
the Bartow Chamber
Committee of 100 about the
current challenges facing
Congress.
"We must reestablish
trust and the American peo-
ple's support," he said. As
someone who grew up
respecting public officials,
he said, it hurts to now be
part of a group that had
squandered . the public's
trust.
Putnam believes that
energy challenges are one of
the most important issues
facing the country today. He
said the current situation is


reminiscent of the crisis in
the '70s, but as soon as the
crisis passed back then,
many lost interest in fixing
the things that caused it in
the first place.
With 30 years of lost time,
we can't afford to do that
again, he said. "It's a genera-
tional problem that requires
a generational solution."
Complete energy inde-
pendence is not likely,
Putnam said, but he envi-
sioned an energy depen-
dence limited to North
America.
SHe also said that ethanol
is only an intermediate step
- a short-term Band-Aid.
Even though it has helped
the phosphate industry,
because of increased use of
fertilizer, the process is still
too tied to fossil minerals,

U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam receives a Champion of Free
Trade Award from the Florida Chamber of Commerce, rep-
resented by Brian Hinton, for votes cast on international
trade legislation during the last session. Hinton said that
these votes would increase Florida sales by $985 million and
create 7,000 new jobs. - Staff photo by Brett Lowe


It's Halloween and it's not too late to get pumpkins fr
carving or eating. These rich orange pumpkins and even i
couple of ghostly white pumpkins were found at the ac
Asbury United Methodist Church patch in Bartow. Today'is
the last day to buy pumpkins there. Asbury is located at tie
corner of Jackson and Clower streets, opposite Bartow
Middle School. - Photo by Peggy Kehbe

Bach Festival Chamber Choir

Performs Saturday for Art Series


Bartow Performing Arts
Series continues on
Saturday, Nov. 3, with a per-
formance by the Bach
Festival of Central Florida
Chamber Choir.
The 18-voice choir is
made up of professional
and semi-professional
singers from throughout
Polk County, and includes
several voice teachers,
choral directors, and voice
competition winners.


Gabe Statom, music
director for the group,
describes them as "some of
the finest vocalists in the
area."
The concert, to be held at
the historic Bartow
Elementary Academy audi-
torium, will feature a varied
program that includes three
Renaissance pieces, "Sing
Joyfully" by William Byrd;
"Crucifixus" by Antonio
Lotti; and a dramatic love
song by Claudio
Monteverdi.
It also features what
Statom calls the "true high-
light of the concert," J.S.
Bach's Motet No. 1 - Singet
dem Herrn.
After pieces by Johannes


Brahms, Charles Stanford,
and Robert Pearsall, the
program concludes with
two African-American spiri-
tuals, "Fix Me Jesus" and
"Joshua fit de battle."
All songs will be per-
formed a capella (without
accompaniment). The
group's members were
drawn to the chamber choir
for the opportunity to sing
difficult music with experi-
enced performers.
The auditorium opens at
6:45 p.m., with the concert
beginning at 7:30.
Tickets are $15 per per-
son, and may be purchased
by calling the Bartow
Chamber of Commerce at
533-7125.

There comes a time when
you realize there are things-
a-plenty that you should
know, but simply don't.
Last week, I was visiting
the gas station, and a young
girl (I would guess about 16
or 17 years old), asked for
my help putting gas in her
car.
New to driving, she had
never been faced with using
the pump before, and wor-
ried that she would do it
wrong and damage her car.
I assisted, and she said,
"that's what I though, but I
just wasn't sure."
For many of us, small
things can be confusing the


first time, and rather than
admit ignorance, we decide
to merely avoid the situa-
tion. In the case of getting
gas, that becomes impossi-
ble, but in other cases -
how to properly hang pic-
tures, how to store foods
safely, how to cook a simple
meal, how to fold a fitted
sheet, how to iron, how to
make a great glass of iced
tea - we shirk off those
responsibilities to a spouse,
or simply do without.
This week, we begin tack-
ling some of those simple,
everyday tasks, and some-
times we'll do things that
are a little more difficult.
Mostly, we want to hear
from you. Is there some-
thing you want to know how


Pressure gauges on commercial air machines are not as
accurate as a separate tire gauge, but can be used in a pinch
when pumping up your tires. - Photo by Peggy Kehoe


to do, but just don't kn6w
who to ask? We want to
know too, and we'll do our
best to get an answer.
Send an e-mail to us.sat
news@polkcountydemo6-
rat.com, and we'll attempt
to answer your questions.
If you don't want us to, we
won't use your name.
This week, we tackle the
subject of proper tire infla-
tion..
"It's trickier than people
think," Pat Pitman, owner of
Shade Tree Automotive,
said. "But not so hard y~i
can't do it." !
Pitman said the first st'
was to find out what your
tires' proper - pres'ste
should be. ^
"A lot of people may think
it's on the tire, but the in4f6-
mation is actually on
inside of the door," he said.
"On the inside of the door ft
tells you the proper pressure
for the tires and the proper
size for the tires. That can be
important when buying ,
used car. You want to maie
sure you have the cor"t
sized tires on the car." ':
Once armed with the
number, Pitman said, a tire
gauge is needed. After filling
tires with some air, check
the pressure with the gatiXe
to make sure they are prop-
erly inflated.
"There will be two pres-

Many people associate whole
grains exclusively with fiber. But
there is more to the story.
If there weren't, we could get
equal health benefits by sticking to
refined grains and taking fiber sup-
plements.
According to a new study, howev-
er, the health benefits of whole
grains are far greater than people
realize.
Whole grains contain all three
parts of the grain kernel: an outer
bran layer, a large central section
called the endosperm and an inner
core, called the germ.
When whole grains are refined
(for example, when whole wheat is
milled to white flour or when brown
rice is refined to make white rice)
the bran and germ are removed.
When experts realized that refin-
ing grains removed nutrients, a
process was standardized to add
back three B vitamins and iron, cre-
ating enriched refined grains. In
recent years, another B vitamin,
folic acid, has been added, too.
Despite the added vitamins and
minerals, enriched refined grains
remain lower in other nutrients
when compared to whole grains. In
a 2006 study of adults in a weight
management program, those whose
diets included whole grains con-
sumed more fiber, more
magnesium and more vita-
min B-6 than those con-
suming equal calories
without whole grains.
The difference in the
phytochemical content of
whole grains versus refined
grains is also gaining
increased attention.
Phytochemicals - natu-
rally found in whole grains,
vegetables, fruits and
beans - are not vitamins
or minerals, but are com-
pounds that seem to pro-
mote good health.
Emerging research sug-
gests that, acting as antiox-
idants or through other
mechanisms, phytochemi-
cals may offer heart pro-
tection and help prevent
cancer development.
Refining grains and
eliminating the bran and
germ layers removes near-

ly all of the beneficial antioxidant
activity.
Increased fiber consumption is of
course the most well known benefit
of eating more whole grains. This
not only promotes bowel regularity,
but seems to decrease risk of a com-
mon intestinal disorder called diver-
ticulosis.
Fiber also aids in blood sugar
management and certain types of
fiber can reduce blood cholesterol.
Greater whole grain consumption
has been linked to 20 to 30 percent
lower risk of diabetes and heart dis-
ease.
This link likely involves more than
just fiber. Some studies suggest that
whole grains play a role in control-
ling generalized inflammation
throughout the body, a condition
that may be tied to development of a
variety of chronic diseases from dia-
betes and heart disease to cancer
and other conditions.
Whole grains have also been
linked to lower mortality rates. For
example, greater whole grain con-
sumption was associated with a
reduction in death from heart dis-
ease in the Iowa Women's Health
Study. More recently, a study pub-
lished in the American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition reported that
those who consumed from 1.5 to


As EASY


well over 3 servings of whole grains
daily were 35 percent less likely to
die of inflammation-related disor-
ders (including respiratory, diges-
tive, kidney, skin and hormonal dis-
orders with inflammatory compo-
nents).
In some studies, greater whole
grain intake is linked to lower risk of
colon cancer. In a Swedish study, for
example, women consuming 4.5 or
more servings a day were 35 percent
less likely to develop colon cancer
than those who ate less than 1.5
servings a day.
However, two other studies have
shown no link between whole grains
and colon cancer risk.
The idea that whole grains are
simply a source of fiber no longer
holds true.
While emerging science contin-
ues to inform us regarding the bene-
fits of consuming whole grains, we
await more science detailing ideal
levels of consumption.
Meanwhile, at least three servings
daily are recommended.
Examples of serving size include
one slice of whole grain bread or half
a cup of cooked whole grain pasta or
brown rice.

Editorial


Keeping You in the Dark for Your Own Good


Imagine that when you took
your last physical exam, your doc-
tor said, "I think we ought to run
some pretty extensive tests to find
out just how healthy you are.
"I don't think there's anything
seriously wrong with you, but
some days you don't feel too well,
and we need to see why.
"It will involve 24 physicians
and it will take four weeks and it
will cost you $8,500, but I think it's
really important to find out exact-
ly what kind of health you're in."
You gulp, but doctor knows best,
and you undergo the extensive
battery of tests. It is, after all, the
only life you've got.
Weeks later, after waiting ner-
vously for a call from your doctor,
you finally call and ask for the
results.
"Well, to tell you the truth, they
were pretty grim. You're in much


worse shape than we thought."
"Gee, Doc, what is it? Cancer?
Heart disease? Incurable halito-
sis?"
"I'm afraid I can't tell you."
"Why not?"
"It might cause you to worry too
much. You wouldn't be able to
think about anything else. You
might not even be able to perform
your job. You could even get fired
for worrying about a condition as
serious as the one you have. And
then you might not be able to pay
all the doctors, including me."
"But Doc, it's my life. And
besides, I paid $8,500 for the tests.
I'm entitled to know the results."
"No you aren't; I know what's
best for you, and I have decided
not to tell you."
Click.

As absurd as this fanciful sce-


nario is, that is pretty much what
NASA has said to the American
people. Just add a few zeroes to
the numbers regarding our fic-
tional patient's exam.
The government agency paid a
contractor to survey some 24,000
commercial and general aviation
pilots, at a cost of $8.5 million,
over a period of four years, to find
out the status of the safety in the
Friendly Skies.
What they found out was alarm-
ing. Or at least apparently it was
alarming. According to those
accounts that have leaked out to
the public, there are more near
misses on the ground and in the
air than was previously thought.
Lots more.
The results, according to the
Associated Press, are so alarming
that NASA ordered the contractor
who got $8.5 million to conduct


the survey to purge the data from
its computers.
NASA refuses to disclose the
results, because they might be too
upsetting to the American public,
especially the people who ride in
airplanes.
They might even discourage
some of them from flying, and
that would be harmful to airline
industry profits.

The first scenario was fictitious,
but the second one is actually
happening.
The government spent $8.5 mil-
lion of your tax dollars to get
24,000 pilots to reveal the state of
health of America's skies, and
refuses to tell you what was dis-
covered, because it might be too
scary.
There is something badly wrong
with this picture.


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

The Reality of the Five-Day Week


OUR READERS SAY

Spessard Holland Got It Right


A little history may help
those sincerely wondering if the
state might be overstepping its
bounds by restraining local
budgets, first by actions taken in
the last regular legislative ses-
sion which have already
reduced the rate of growth in
local government budgets and,
now, those being considered in
special session which could
mean real cuts.
In 1933, a Florida state sena-
tor "infuriated by the hesita-
tions and misguided actions of
county commissioners, school
board members, and some
other county officers pushed
through the legislature a mea-
sure handing control of budget-
ing for all county purposes to a
new county budget commis-
sion."
You might be surprised to
learn this was Bartow's own
favorite son, Spessard Holland.
The bill affected only Polk
County. Notably, it was enacted
primarily by Democrats during
the Great Depression and the
FDR administration, running
counter to the New Deal expan-
sive government era.
It was also dramatically suc-
cessful. According to the recent
Polk County history volumes by
Canter Brown, a Fort Meade
native and former senior aide in
the Georgia Legislature, the
board appointed by Holland
"immediately pared question-
able staff, cut salaries and
shaved expenses."
This came at the genesis of
Holland's impressive career
which stretched through his
election as Florida governor
during World War II, then to the
U.S. Senate for several terms
until his retirement from that
body in 1972. Holland also start-
ed a law firm that as recently as
a few years ago was the second
largest in the country.
SThis summer, after predic-
tions of doom and gloom about
our state "mandated" nine per-
cent cut this year, Polk's general
fund budget actually increased
by nine percent (20 percent with
carryovers), with our total bud-
get skyrocketing $220 million
dollars to $1.8 billion (from $559
million in 1998).
Back when Holland was cut-
ting the BoCC, constitutionals
and school board budgets, they
totaled a million dollars or so.


All these officials were head-
quartered in the old courthouse.
Sadly, lobbying arms like FAC
(the state association of the
same county commissions
which should've lowered taxes),
are road-blocking the modest
double homestead
exemption/limited portability
package.
At least I can't be the one
accused of whining this time. I
would have liked to have had
the county commission achieve
some of this heavy lifting our-
selves but was shot down
repeatedly inside and outside
commission chambers.
The double-talk and spin
from the current big govern-
ment proponents would have
put to shame even the likes of
the legendary carpetbagger, on
one hand, and the more futuris-
tic Orwellian Big Brother on the
other. Legislators must persist
and eventually limit skyrocket-
ing commercial and non-home-
stead taxes, too, acting swiftly to
somehow alleviate harsh, con-
fiscatory taxes for the working
family and retiree, and to pro-
mote economic vitality for all.
Though your editorial of Oct.
24 "Better To Do Nothing Than
To Do Something Wrong" was
well-titled and well-reasoned, 1
liked it a lot less than several
previous tax-cutting editorials
of this newspaper that sort of
led the charge on granting the
significant taxpayer relief you
still favor and I think you will
agree has not yet been accom-
plished.
You mentioned that property
taxes revenues had been shoot-
ing up "two and three times the
rate of inflation and growth
combined" (in 2006, even four
times, I might add). I know that
Polk County, when meeting with
the state legislative delegation,
spun the numbers to look like
its property tax haul had gone
up 64 percent (still too high)
rather than the actual 110 per-
cent over the last five years.
That was my contention at
the time, but was confirmed by
the recent study undertaken by
Glenn Robertson former direc-
tor of State of Florida Policy,
Planning, Budget and Finance
for Governors Bob Graham (D)
and Bob Martinez (R). That
study was presented in regular
session to this board of county


commissioners in August.
Titled "Growth Implications for
Local Government Budgets," it
was funded by Doc Dockery (the
husband of Republican Sen.
Paula Dockery) and presented
along with the background doc-
ument cited here.
My contention is that it is
generally better to do some-
thing than to do nothing.
Though what State Senator
Holland did in the 1930s may
not have been perfect (the bud-
get committee he initiated was
disbanded in the late 1950s) it
proved successful and the coun-
ty was enabled to provide nec-
essary services and build
schools that it would not have
been enabled to do otherwise,
or so contends Canter Brown.
To those who say that more
study should be undertaken, I'd
also contend that it's the most
researched subject in memory
of the Legislature. To those who
earlier objected that the local
governments and school boards
weren't being consulted, one
need only look and see that this
has been undertaken. Unlike
the county commissions" FAC,
the state school board associa-
tion is in accord with the Senate
plan. At least, they decided not
to oppose it.
Personally, I like the House's
bi-partisan plan better (how
often can you get Democrats
and Republicans to agree?). The
House plan, provides relief to
non-homestead and commer-
cial properties while giving a
greater savings to working class
families who are under the
greatest stress (40 percent of
median home value exemp-
tion).
If the Senate won't agree with
the House proposal, the House
should go ahead and pass the
Senate plan and let the Tax
Reform Commission make fur-
ther recommendations address-
ing important concerns regard-
ing non-homestead residential
and commercial.
"Get 'er done." Spessard
Holland certainly was ahead of
his time in adhering to that wise
tenet of a current blue-collar
philosopher. Current stale sena-
tors should learn that history
lesson and go and do likewise.

Nearly a year ago, as I
pondered the transition in
ownership of this newspa-
per from Frisbie Publishing
Co. to Sun Coast Media
Group, I toyed with the con-
cept of a four-day week.
Four 10-hour days, or
some combination that
would add up to the cus-
tomary 40 hours a week,
had a real nice sound to it
after 43 years of working the
kind of schedule that own-
ers of businesses often
work.
And I'm getting there; my
Workaholics Anonymous
counselor has told me to
shoot for 50 hours initially.
I was reminded of this
thought process last week
when I read that the
University of South Florida
is seriously considering
scheduling classes on
Friday.
A five-day campus week.
The academic equivalent,
to hear some react to it, of
slave labor.

doctoral student at USF -

idle hours when she is not

WINTER HAVEN - Every
year, the president of the
United States proclaims
November as National
Family Caregivers Month. It
is designated as a time each
year to thank, support, edu-
cate, and celebrate the more
than 50 million family care-
givers across the country
who are currently providing
more than 80 percent of all
home care services for loved
ones valued at more than
$306 billion in "free" caregiv-
ing services.
This proclamation is
issued annually by the presi-
dent to draw attention to the
many challenges facing fam-
ily caregivers, to advocate
for stronger public policy to
address family caregiving
issues, and to raise aware-
ness about community pro-
grams that support family
caregivers.


member - who unfortu-
nately inherited the worka-
holic gene from her father,
as did her sister.
Her schedule does not
remotely approach a four-
day week, but apparently
that is the norm for many
college students these days.
What also is the norm at
USF is inadequate parking
space, crowded cafeterias at
lunch hour, an... oh yes ...
packed classrooms.
This occurs Monday
through Thursday. On
Friday, students have their
choice of places to park and
easy access to the Starbucks
snack bar. And classes? Only
about 150 classes are sched-
uled on Fridays for the uni-
versity's 38,000 students.
(Science labs, which are
open 12 hours a day, five
days a week, are the excep-
tion.)
Students, The Tampa
Tribune reported, have
dubbed Thursdays
"Thirstdays," and thirst is a
terrible thing to endure,
especially when there are no
classes on Friday. '
College administrators
say that five-day class
schedules will become the
norm next fall, giving
today's thirsty academicians


According to the Florida

The reason, they explain,

enough money to build
enough classrooms (and

between a five-day class

said.
Continuing on the topic
of the war against radical
Islam, Putnam said that one
of the keys to success has
been the realization by
Muslim powers that radical
Islam is not only at war
against the Christian and
secular West, but against
everything that is not itself.
Americans, he said, had a
tendency to forget, as many
were not directly affected by
Sept. 11. However, to radical
Islamists, the Crusades are
still an insult which predi-
cates this whole conflict.
"It's still as recent in their
minds as Lee's surrender
was to some of my reenac-
tor friends," he said.
The war with radical
Islam will not be just one
chapter in a history book,
like World War II, Putnam
said, but is instead more like
the decade-spanning Cold
War, but with the intensity
of a true war.
He referenced Gaddafi
setting aside his nuclear
ambitions in Libya after
pressure from the U.S., and
said that Libya is now set to
become a major tourist des-
tination.
"Iran has that choice
now," he said.
Putnam said there are
still many challenges, and
that many of the solutions
offend our sensibilities.
"Intelligence services are
not associated with Eagle
Scouts," he said.

administration was that the
CIA could not associate with
known human rights viola-
tors, but Putnam said it is
necessary to collect good
information. He said it was
similar to preventing police
officers from posing as drug
dealers or using informants
to capture criminals.

Health Care Reform
Health care is another
serious issue facing
Congress, Putnam said.
Small businesses are finding
it increasingly difficult to
cover health care costs,
while some of the largest
businesses are having trou-
ble keeping up with legacies
- $1,500 to $2,000 of each
American car sold goes
toward paying health care,
as opposed to $200 per car
at Toyota, Putnam said.
"Health care has not kept
up with the workforce," he
said. Many are having to
stay at their jobs not
because they enjoy it,, but
because they must have the
health care. Putnam wants
to sever the link between
work and health care, and
take the health care debate
to the individual market.
The currently discussed
health care plan for children
was too sweeping in
Putnam's opinion. While the
working poor who earn up
to twice the poverty line
were currently covered, the
new plan calls for coverage
of children whose parents
are making up to four times
the poverty level.


"With the high cost of liv-
ing in New York, that means
that a family of four could
make up to $83,000 and still
qualify," he said.
He also was concerned
about the two million chil-
dren who would be moved
to this health care program,
as he wanted to guarantee a
competitive environment.
About 49 percent of the U.S.
population is covered under
government health care, he
said, making it a careful bal-
ancing act.
Putnam also said it is a
huge fiscal issue, as $2.7 tril-
lion of the federal budget
was on "auto-pilot," paying
for Medicare, Medicaid, and
Social Security.
As baby boomers retire,
he said, these programs
become insolvent. "The sys-
tem goes bust the year I
retire, so it's a personal issue
for me."
"'If we fail to act, there is'
too much to handle and it
becomes impossible to deal
with the challenges of the
next generation," he added.
He supports changes to
how citizens pay for Social
Security, and to the retire-
ment age, which was creat-
ed when life expectancy was
much lower. It would be
unfair to change those
things for people close to
retirement who have been
operating under a certain
set of assumptions for their
whole life, he said, but
"there is time for the young
to operate under a new set
of assumptions."

Veterans Day, Nov. 11


America's Warrior-Citizens


A special branch
The United States is at war in Afghanistan
and Iraq. We also have troops in many other
countries. When the U.S. Army needs more
troops, it can depend on the U.S. Army
Reserve to help.
This branch of the U.S. Army will celebrate
its 100th birthday next April. In honor of
Veterans Day, The Mini Page salutes the
Army Reserve and members of other Reserve
branches of the armed forces.
The Army Reserve:
* established in 1908
* about 200,000 soldiers
* 13,000 serving in war
on terror

Reserve support
The idea for a reserve
force goes all the way back to
Founding Fathers George
Washington and Alexander
Hamilton. They thought all .
men should be trained for
military service so they could
support the Army if needed.
The other branches of the George
military - the Air Force, Washington
Coast Guard, Marine Corps .
and Navy - also have
Reserve branches. Many
Reservists are former active-
duty troops.

Our country celebrates Veterans Day on
Nov. 11, the anniversary of the end of
World War I. This U.S. holiday was created
in 1919 to honor members of our armed
services.
A military veteran is a person who has
served in the armed forces. Do you know
any veterans?

A monthly job
Usually, Reserve soldiers work part-
time, just one weekend a month and
two weeks in the
summer. Sometimes,
such as in wartime,
they are called upon
to be full-time. They
might fill active-duty
positions when those
soldiers go to war.

answer to the federal, or national, gov-
ernment.
The National Guard is another
branch of service. Each governor serves
as commander in chief of the National
Guard units in his or her state. They
can be called to federal service by the
president.


The Reserve branches
Reserve soldiers receive pay and
other benefits, such as education and
insurance. Many of them like the idea
of serving their country while continu-
ing their civilian lives at home.


The Air Force

* established in 1948

The Army Reserve


The oldest federal Reserve
In April 1908, the Army created a
Medical Reserve
Corps so that it
would have trained
military doctors in i
times of war. In just
a few years, it was
expanded to include
other duties. Reserve
soldiers have served in wars begin-
ning with World War I and continu-
ing today.
It calls its soldiers warrior-citi-
zens.
Basic training
When a person joins the Army
Reserve, he or she must complete
basic training.
Basic training lasts eight weeks.
Most soldiers are trained at the U.S.
Army Training Center at Fort
Jackson, S.C.
Have you ever seen soldiers in
basic training in a movie or on tele-
vision? They work very hard! They
train six days a week.
A typical day
A soldier's typi-
cal day includes:
* 5:30 a.m. rise
* Physical train-
ing
* Learning disci-
pline, ethics, and
drug and alcohol
avoidance
* Weapons train-


ing
0


Obstacle cours-


* Road marching I
* Hand-to-hand I
combat training
They finish their exercises around 9
p.m.

about Veterans Day and listings of
holiday events in your area.

Reserve unit helps the

the rangers who do the

Graduation
At the end of basic training, sol-
diers complete a week-long exercise
called Victory Forge. It combines all
of the things they've learned during
the eight weeks.
When they return from Victory
Forge, there is a ceremony where
they receive their Army beret, or
hat. This ceremony marks their tran-
sition from civilian to soldier.
A special job
A Reserve soldier chooses a spe-
cialty, or a job to do in the service.
After completing basic training, he
or she goes on to train in that spe-
cialty. Specialties might include:
* medics, who provide medical care
* cooks
* military police, who do police-type
work
* carpenters and plumbers
* clerical workers.

Charlotte Attorney Calls for Phosphate Study


Other officials at odds over
areawide impact assessment

By GREG MARTIN
Staff Writer

SARASOTA - An oft-repeated
call by several coastal counties for
a full-blown study on the impacts
of phosphate mining would finally
get answered as part of a proposed
settlement pact, if Charlotte
County's special attorney gets his
way.
Ed de la Parte, a Tampa-based
environmental attorney for
Charlotte County, said in presen-
tations to both the Charlotte and
Sarasota county commissions this
week that he is recommending the
Mosaic phosphate mining compa-
ny be obligated to support the
counties' call for a federal areaw-
ide Environmental Impact
Statement as part of a so-called
Phosphate Compact.
With Mosaic's support, the
counties should have a better
chance of getting the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers to authorize
the study, de la Parte said.
The corps is responsible for
permitting wetland excavations. A
1969 federal law requires the fed-
eral government to conduct
impact studies if permitting
actions could cause significant
impacts. Whether to conduct an
areawide study, however, is up to
the discretion of the agency.
Discussions of the study sur-


faced this week as Charlotte, Lee
and Sarasota counties and the
Peace River/Manasota Regional
Water Supply Authority consid-
ered a proposed settlement offer
from Mosaic's legal team. The pact
was negotiated between a local
government team led by Charlotte
County Commissioner Tricia
Duffy, Sarasota County
Commissioner Shannon Staub,
and Mosaic.
The pact calls for Mosaic to take
extra measures to protect or miti-
gate impacts to the Peace and
Myakka rivers. The measures
include prohibiting mining within
the 100-year flood plains, a water
quality-monitoring program, and
a site for a future reservoir.
In exchange, the counties and
the authority would drop pending
litigation and waive their rights to
challenge permits or make com-
ments opposing Mosaic's mining
activities.
De la, Parte, in his presentation
to the ,Sarasota County
Commission Oct. 24, said the local
governments' team was not call-
ing for the impact study in a previ-
ous version drafted in February.
But at that time, the county was
calling for a boundary to restrict
Mosaic's mining operations to an
area north of State Road 64 in
Hardee County.
That would have allowed
Mosaic to mine its 20,600-acre
Ona mine, but not its 24,000-acre
Pine Level mine west of Arcadia.
"If you stop the mining north of


State Road 64, there wasn't
enough new mining to justify a
study," de la Parte said.
The areawide study should now
be considered "back in play," how-
ever, because Mosaic recently
declined to accept the proposed
boundary. Mosaic's proposed
boundary would allow mining as
far south as Arcadia, de la Parte
said.
Mosaic has never opposed an
areawide impact study, provided it
also encompasses agriculture and
urban impacts, said Dave
Townsend, Mosaic spokesman.
The Sarasota County
Commission, after hearing pre-
sentations from de la Parte,
Mosaic vice president Rich Mack
and the water authority's attorney,
Doug Manson, agreed by consen-
sus to return to negotiations led by
de la Parte.
Staub, her county's lead nego-
tiator, asked her board whether it
considered the draft a "skeleton"
of concepts that just needed meat
put on the bones.
Commissioner Nora Patterson
said de la Parte had cited a num-
ber of legal issues that needed to
be incorporated into the pact.
Commissioner Jon Thaxton,
however, said he hopes to see
much stronger protections in the
final version.
"My goodness," Thaxton said,
after reciting the list of benefits in
the deal. "These are things we
should have anyway. The fact
these are not law today is a crying


shame and everybody here should
be embarrassed by that."
Commissioner Joe Barbetta
said he "fully supported"
Thaxton's position.
Staub, earlier in the discussion,
pointed out that the U.S..Army
Corps has refused repeated
requests for an areawide study.
But de la Parte said if the
request for the EIS was put into a
long-term compact, the federal
government might see fit to "take
a holistic view of mining" and
authorize the study.
Rick Cantrell, a Department of
Environmental Protection deputy
division director who attended
Wednesday's meeting, said some
protections in the pact were the
same as those required by the DEP
and some were more protective.
He said although state regula-
tions do not prohibit mining with-
in the 100-year flood plain, the
DEP will likely no longer allow it.
In fact, he said the DEP is likely to
require mining companies to offer
conservation easements within
the flood plain to preserve them
forever, as mitigation for their
impacts.
Thirty years from now, there
will be no cumulative impacts
from phosphate mining, Cantrell
declared. That's because the DEP
has been asking Mosaic "constant-
ly to refine its reclamation prac-
tices," he said.
De la Parte, however, noted the
DEP's study showed impacts con-
tinued to occur throughout the


1990s.
Over in DeSoto County, com-
missioners apparently saw no
need to modify the agreement.
That commission voted unani-
mously Tuesday night to support
Mosaic's proposed settlement.
They directed Commissioner.
Jerry Hill, the county's representa-
tive on the authority board, to vote
yes on the pact when the authori-
ty meets Nov. 7.
However, Hill, prior to the'

The authority's executive direc-
tor, Pat Lehman, walked commis-
sioners through the proposed
agreement Tuesday night in ::
Arcadia, and stressed how:;i
DeSoto's circumstances differ:
from the other counties involved.
"DeSoto County is not a party
to the agreement, individually,"
Lehman said. "So that does not, '
restrict anything that the county
does. You still maintain every right
as a county; you have your own-
mining ordinance, so you will reg-
ulate (any) mining that may come
in DeSoto County - this does not
impact that whatsoever."

Mosaic Calls for 'Collaborative'



Relationship In Charlotte County


By GREG MARTIN
Staff Writer

The phosphate company
Mosaic argues its proposed
offer to take extra steps to
protect the Peace River
would be "far superior" to
the alternative - contin-
ued, costly litigation,
according to a senior execu-
tive for Mosaic.
But Ed de la Parte,
Charlotte County's special
phosphate attorney, argued
that the county's litigation is
what has brought Mosaic to
the negotiation table.
However, Mosaic's nego-
tiating team, which includes
senior management execu-
tives from the company's
headquarters in Plymouth,
Minn., are now offering to
accomplish that settlement
for "the least amount" of
cost to the company as pos-
sible.
"That's where I draw the
line," said de la Parte. "I'm
not going to suggest my
client sign an agreement
that's a bad agreement."
Mosaic's senior vice pres-
ident Richard Mack, howev-
er, claims de la Parte is
"incapable" of rendering an
unbiased assessment of the
proposed pact because his
firm has earned some $4.7
million by representing the
county in challenges of per-
mits for three phosphate
mines over the past six
years.
Mack's comments came
Thursday in a nine-page
response to a critique of the


Robert Loftin, chief oper-
ating officer of C&C Bank,
has named Sabra Mathis has
been promoted to vice pres-
ident and branch manager.
Ms. Mathis will serve as
vice president and branch
manager of the Edgewood-
98 office located at 3115 U.S.
Highway 98 South,
Lakeland.
Her banking career spans
27 years and includes expe-
rience as an assistant in
both branch management
and commercial lending
functions.
She most recently held


proposed pact by de la
Parte. The critique had been
posted on the county's Web
site Friday.
Mack also blasted County
Attorney Janette Knowlton
for taking "swift actions to
publicize" de la Parte's cri-
tique. Knowlton's move
appeared to be "little more
than an elaborate effort to
undermine a concrete,
comprehensive solution
that achieves much more
for the County .and its resi-
dents than has been or
could be achieved through
costly, taxpayer-funded liti-
gation," Mack wrote.
Mack took exception to
de la Parte's argument that
the pact offers too little in
benefits in exchange for a
muzzle on county litigation
and even objection to phos-
phate mining for perpetuity.
However, both Mack and
de la Parte suggest it may be
time to consider a new
approach to protecting the
Peace River from the rav-
ages of strip mining.
"An objective examina-
tion of the Compact clearly
shows that Mosaic is com-
mitted to building a proac-
tive, forward-looking col-
laborative relationship with
the County and the Water
Authority that focuses on
environmental protection
and constructive solutions,
not protracted delay and
costly litigation," Mack said.
De la Parte suggests the
county hold a workshop to
adopt a new phosphate
strategy, one that empha-


the position of sales and ser-
vice officer.
Ms. Mathis earned pro-
fessional recognition
through participation in the
Florida Bankers Association
Florida Supervisors
Academy and the successful
completion of the Omega
Consumer Lending study
program.
Additionally, she has par-
ticipated in continuous pro-
fessional development
through the American
Institute of Banking contin-
uing education program.


sizes "cooperation and
communication."
However, de la Parte
urges the county not to rati-
fy Mosaic's proposed agree-
ment, and Mosaic argues
that de la Parte's criticisms
are unjustified.
"The simple truth is that
the Compact emphasizes
cooperation and communi-
cation, while the status quo
emphasizes confrontation
and litigation," Mack said.
Mosaic has offered to
take extra steps beyond
those required by state reg-
ulations to:
* Avoid or mitigate signif-
icant impacts to the water
quality, quantity and timing
of the flow of the Peace
River.
* Establish a water quali-
ty-monitoring program.
* Not mine within the
100-year flood plain of the
Peace River and its major
tributaries, but mine out
other smaller streams.
* Obtain $50 million in
financial assurances to pay
for damages in the event of
a catastrophic clay slime
spill.
* Establish a southern
boundary for future mining
that keeps mining north of


Charlotte County.
De la Parte argues the
counties would gain little
under the boundary that
Mosaic has proposed for its
mineable limit. He pointed
out Mosaic owns as much as
200,000 acres in that area
and could double the
amount in the future
through acquisitions.
So, the boundary has no
effect in limiting the
amount of terrain Mosaic
intends to mine.
However, Mosaic's pro-
posed limit is "remarkably
similar" to a mining area
found in a prior draft even
after it was marked up by de
la Parte, Mack noted.
"It is noteworthy that this
was omitted from Mr. de la
Parte's post hoc rejection of
the Compact," Mack wrote.
Citing a report from an
engineering expert, de la
Parte also recommended
the county request the pact
require clay-settling areas
be built to higher standards
than called for in the pact.
However, Mack pointed
out that hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne swept
across Central Florida in
2004 - and none of the
company's clay-settling

areas spilled. So, the stan-
dards called for by de la
Parte are unnecessary, Mack
said.
De la Parte also pointed
out that, under special con-
ditions imposed as a result
of permit challenges at two
of its mines, Mosaic is oblig-
ated to use injection wells to
keep wetlands from drying
out.
So, Mosaic's offer to apply
for permits for such wells at
its future mines falls short of
providing the extra steps
beyond those currently
required, de la Parte has
argued.
But Mack said the lan-
guage in the proposed pact
"is no less demanding" than
the past requirements for
injection wells.
De la Parte also recom-
mends the county insist the
pact list a number of small-
er streams that the county's
environmental consultant,
Dr. Tony Janicki, believes
should be preserved.
But Mack points out that
in past hearings, a judge has
,concluded mining has no
impact on the tributaries, so
the protection of the small-
er streams would be unnec-
essary.

Bands normally will per-
form music ranging from
classical to rock, from jazz
to pop, and their shows are
accentuated by their march-
ing and contribution from
their auxiliary groups. Flags,
batons, pom poms, rifles,
and a variety of other props
will accompany the staging
of the shows. Many bands
feature their percussion sec-
tions, or drum lines, at some
point during their shows.
A complex style of
marching has been incorpo-
rated by most bands. They
form drills and curvilinear
forms that accompany the
phrases in the music. The
bands have to learn these
forms one set at a time, a
different position for each
person on each set.
Usually these sets or
phrases are eight or 16
counts, depending on the
music. These sets are creat-
ed either by hand or by
computer programs. Then

Jacket Playoff Hopes Rest Florida Southern Athletics Director Lois Webb to Retire


On Rivalry vs. Lake Wales


By JEFF THORNBURG
Sports Correspondent

Friday night one of the
county's most storied rival-
ries renews as the Lake
Wales Highlanders visit
Bartow Memorial Stadium
for a district showdown
against the Yellow Jackets.
Kickoff is set for 7:30
p.m., and the game can be
heard on AM 1130 WBE
There will be a playoff
atomsphere as both squads
along with Ridge
Community are battling for
the final playoff spot in
Class 3A-District 10.
Bartow's bid to return to
the state football playoffs
began with two district loss-
es. Setbacks on Sept. 7 at
Kathleen and two weeks
later, a 36-point home loss
to Ridge, put Bartow's post-
season hopes in serious
peril.
Give credit to the Jackets.
Since the Ridge loss, Bartow
has won three of four,
including a district win at
Haines City. And thanks to a
Lake Wales victory over
Ridge on Oct. 19, Bartow
finds themselves back in the
playoff picture.
Here is Bartow's playoff
scenario, no slide rule
required. First the Jackets


must win over Lake Wales;
anything else and Bartow is
out.
Okay, here we go:
SBartow and Haines City
win - Bartow is the district
runner-up.
* Bartow and Ridge win -
a three-way tie with Lake
Wales, Ridge and Bartow.
The district tiebreaker
would be played on
Monday.
* Lake Wales win - the
Highlanders secure the dis-
trict runner-up spot.
The Highlanders enter
the game with an overall
record of 6-1, and 2-1 in the
district; their only loss was
to Kathleen.
Last year Lake Wales
scored a pair of fourth-quar-
ter touchdowns to slip past
Bartow 17-14.
Bartow, 5-3, is scoring 18
points per game, while the
Jacket defense is allowing 14
points. The Lake Wales
offense is posting 22 points
per game and their defense
is giving up 21 points.
Take away the post sea-
son implications and throw
away stats, and all you need
to say is Lake Wales and
Bartow. Both teams should
have no problem getting
ready for this game.


While the Florida Senior
Games State
Championships is a mere
five weeks from the first
competition on Saturday,
Dec. 1, in Lee County and
the City of Cape Coral, there
are still four chances for
senior athletes to qualify at a
local Senior Games event.
These sports require a
qualifying performance at a
sanctioned Florida Local
Senior Games Qualifier:
badminton, three-on-three
basketball, basketball
shooting, bowling, cycling,
golf, horseshoes, racquet-
ball, shuffleboard, softball,
swimming, table tennis,
tennis, and track & field.
The Florida Sports
Foundation defines an
"open" event as one in
which an athlete is not
required to participate in a
sanctioned Florida Local
Senior Games Qualifier.
Archery, billiards, bocce,
bridge, pickleball, powerlift-
ing, race walk, road race and
volleyball are considered
"open" events.

After 31 years at Ilorida
Southern College, Lois
Webb soon will be trading
her many coaching hats and
administrative leadership
roles for her golf shoes.
The woman who has
devoted half of her life to
Florida Southern College
athletics will officially retire
at the end of June 2008.
"I want to express my
deepest gratitude to FSC
President Dr. Anne Kerr for
her continuous support of
my leadership role in the
athletic department," Webb
said.
"I have been blessed to
have been surrounded by a
loyal and devoted coaching
and administrative staff that
strives for excellence each
and every day.
"The essence of what I
have accomplished as a pro-
fessional administrator is
predicated on the people
with whom I work and
serve," she added.
"I will forever have fond
memories of many exciting
sporting moments, a net-
work of many, many friends
and professional colleagues,
and most importantly, the
knowledge that I have had a
part to play in the develop-
ment of many young people
who now are leading pro-
ductive lives."
"Lois Webb has made a
powerful contribution to
the success of Florida
Southern College through
her outstanding leadership
positions," said Kerr, who
has been president for the
last three years of Webb's
tenure.
"She is nationally recog-
nized for building a model
scholar-athlete program at
Florida Southern. while also

directing one of the
strongest competitive
Division II programs in the
nation.
"Lois leaves an outstand-
ing legacy and firm founda-
tion for the next athletic
director to build upon."
In her seventh year as
athletics director at FSC,
Webb has presided over
three NCAA championship
teams (women's golf in 2002
and 2007, baseball in 2005),
extending the school's
impressive total of national
championships to 26. FSC
has had eight other teams
produce top 10 NCAA fin-
ishes during her tenure.
In October, Webb was
awarded the 2007 NCAA
Division II Administrator of
the Year Award from the
National Association of
Collegiate Women Athletics
Administrators (NACWAA).
The award is presented
annually to NACWAA mem-
bers who have made signifi-
cant contributions as
administrators of intercolle-
giate athletics.
Webb has been making
contributions to the college
for 31 years, as a coach, an
administrator and faculty
member. She has been a
leader at FSC since 1977,
when she began a 24-year
coaching career in volley-
ball that produced 24 con-
secutive winning seasons
and 747 career victories.
She also coached the
women's basketball team to
a winning record through
five seasons and the
women's golf team for two
winning seasons, while
serving as FSC's senior
woman administrator from
1981 through 2001.
Webb took her volleyball


teams to four consecutive
AIAW national tourna-
ments, and then made 16
NCAA tournament appear-
ances, finishing fourth in
1981, 1989 and 1991 and
fifth in 1990. She led the
Moccasins to eight
Sunshine State Conference
volleyball titles.
Five times she was
named SSC Coach of the
Year and three times she
was NCAA South Region
Coach of the Year. During,
her tenure, 18 Moccasin vol-
leyball players received All-
America recognition.
At the same time she was
directing the volleyball
team to national promi-
nence, she coached the
women's basketball team to
a 49-48 record during the
program's first five years
and won the inaugural SSC
women's basketball cham-
pionship in 1982.
An avid golfer herself,
Webb was charged in 1995
with starting the women's
golf program at FSC and it
quickly became one of the
best in the nation.
She led the 1995-96 team
to a fourth-place national
finish in its first season and
sent three individuals to the
national championship
tournament the following
season. Her first recruit was
Shanna Nagy, who became
a four-time All-American,
two-time NCAA champion
and a member of the SSC
and FSC Halls of Fame.
In the 2006-07 school
year, Florida Southern
enjoyed one of its most suc-
cessful campaigns ever
under Webb's direction.
Four of its athletic teams
earned top-five finishes at
their respective NCAA


championship events.
The women's golf team
won the Division II champi-
onship, its fourth; the men's
golf team placed third; the
softball team placed fourth;
and the women's tennis
team tied for fifth. That
allowed FSC to register a
10th-place finish in the final
NCAA Division II Directors
Cup point standings, the
best finish among the nine
Sunshine State Conference
schools.
In the SSC in 2006-07,
Florida Southern captured
five league championships:
men's and women's cross
country, volleyball (co-
champion), softball and
women's golf - more than
any other league school.
The Moccasins also had
more SSC Coaches of the
Year (four) and more SSC
Athletes of the Year (five)
than any other league
school. Those performances
helped FSC claim the SSC
Women's Mayors' Cup for
the 10th time in the pro-
gram's history, while the
FSC men were second in the
Men's Mayors' Cup stand-
ings.
Webb is a member of four
different halls of fame. She
was inducted as a charter
member of the Sunshine
State Conference Hall of
Fame in 1992 and the
Florida Southern Sports
Hall of Fame in 2002.
In 2003 she became a
charter member of the
American Volleyball
Coaches Association Hall of
Fame and in 2004 she was
selected to the Polk County
Sports Hall of Fame.
Kerr said the process for
selecting Webb's successor
will begin in the spring.

Find
Alternative
Fuels
For the motoring public
anxious to obtain ethanol
and biodiesel fuels, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Brorison
announced that more facili-
ties throughout the state are
making these products
available.
To help consumers locate
stations offering alternative
fuels around Florida,
Bronson unveiled a website
that provides locations
statewide where E85, E10,
biodiesel and biodiesel-
blended fuels can be pur-
chased.
The website is located at
http://www.doacs.state.fl.us
/standard/petro/AltSiteMap
.html.
"This tool will enable
motorists to locate renew-
able, cleaner burning fuels
around the state," Bronson


said.
E85, an alternative fuel
comprised of 85 percent
ethanol and 15 percent
gasoline, requires a flex-fuel
vehicle.
E10, gasoline blended
with 10 percent ethanol, and
biodiesel-blended fuels can
be used in virtually any
modern gasoline or diesel
engine.


River, designated as a
Florida Wild and Scenic
River - one of only two in
Florida -- that flows
through wetlands, prairies,
hammocks and pinelands.
"Exploring our state
parks provides excellent
educational and recreation-
al opportunities so we can
better understand Florida's
environmental diversity 'and
help conserve our natural
places," Restina added.

The golfer had a bad day
on the course. At the last
hole, he fell into a tantrum
and started swearing.
Beating the ground with a
club, he cried, "I have to give
it up, I have to give it up!"
"Give up golf?" asked the
caddy.
"No," snapped the golfer,
"the ministry."
Many put sports ahead of
the Savior, the club ahead of
the church, the body ahead
of the soul.
Such a person is a
pushover in a crisis. He col-
lapses or consumes himself
with self-pity.
What of the one who puts
God first?
The Bible says, "In all
these things we are more
than conquerors through
Him who loved us."

A mother asked,
"Marilyn, were you a good
girl in church today?"
"Yes ma'am," she
answered.. "A man offered
me a plate of money. I want-
ed it, but I said, 'No, thanks.'

Isn't it just like us to be
more concerned about get-
ting than giving?
But it's the generous
heart that's made glad, not
the greedy heart.
It's the one who shoul-
ders his responsibilities
that's satisfied, not the one
who shuns them.
It's the one who shares
his talents that's made
happy, not the one who
stores them.
The Living Bible says, "If
you give, you will get. Your
gift will return to you in full
and overflowing measure."

A woman in Lansing,
Mich., hasn't changed the
light bulb on her front porch
in 34 years.


The bulb's still burning
and is expected to burn for a
while longer.
In His Sermon on the
Mount, the Lord said to His
followers, "Let your light so
shine before men, that they
may see your good works,
and glorify in your Father,
who is in heaven."
The deeds of the
Christian must be not only
correct, but charming; not
only good, but gracious.
And they're to draw atten-
tion not to yourself, but to
your Savior.
Everything you do, and
say, and are, is to be for
God's glory.
Are you glorifying God?

A delicate bride-to-be
sighed to her mother, "Oh
dear, there -are so many
things to do before a wed-
ding. I want mine to be per-
fect. I hope that I wont over-
look the most insignificant
detail."
"Don't worry," said her
mother. "I'll see that he's
there."
Andrew cast his lot with
the Lord. As he thought on
heaven and its happiness,
he wanted his brother,
Peter, to be there. So he said,
in effect, "I'll see that he's
there."
The Bible says, "At once
he found his brother and
told him, 'We have found
the Messiah.' And he took
him'to Jesus."
As you think of heaven,
won't you see that your fam-
ily and friends are there?

Matthew Henry, the
Prince of Preachers, was
robbed one day.
He prayed, "Lord, I thank
Thee first because I was
never robbed before; sec-
ond, because although they
took my money they didn't


take my life; third, although
they took my all, it wasn't
much; and fourth, because
it was I who was robbed and
not I who robbed."
A grateful heart is a glad
heart. An ungrateful heart is
a grouchy heart.
Gratitude proclaims
strength and produces suc-
cess. Ingratitude poisons
your attitudes and paralyzes
your abilities.

say, and are, is to be for
God's glory.
Are you glorifying God?

A delicate bride-to-be
sighed to her mother, "Oh
dear, there are so many
things to do before a wed-
ding. I want mine to be per-
fect. I hope that I won't over-
look the most insignificant


detail."
"Don't worry," said her
mother. "I'll see that he's
there."
Andrew cast his lot with
the Lord. As he thought on
heaven and its happiness,
he wanted his brother,
Peter, to be there. So he said,
in effect, "I'll see that he's
there."
The Bible says, "At once
he found his brother and
told him, 'We have found
the Messiah.' And he took
him to Jesus."
As you think of heaven,
won't you see that your fam-
ily and friends are there?

Matthew Henry, the
Prince of Preachers, was
robbed one day.
He prayed, "Lord, I thank
Thee first because I was
never robbed before; sec-
ond, because although they
took my money they didn't
take my life; third, although
they took my all, it wasn't
much; and fourth, because
it was I who was robbed and.
not I who robbed."
A grateful heart is a glad
heart. An ungrateful heart is
a grouchy heart.
Gratitude proclaims
strength and produces suc-
cess. Ingratitude poisons
your attitudes and paralyzes
your abilities.


Musings From God's Penman



What It Takes to Be an Expert on Anything


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

After what seemed like
months of a hectic sched-
ule, the Gracious Mistress of
the Parsonage and Yours
Truly were enjoying a relax-
ing evening in the parson-
age living room catching up
on a pile of newspapers.
It is amazing to me how
much the new news is like
the old news, which only
increases my admiration for
those who write the news.
I was engrossed in some
story, I forget which one
now, when I heard familiar
sputterings coming from
the direction of my wife's
chair. Being a veteran hus-
band, I chose to ignore
those sounds. However, the
more I ignored, the louder
they got.
It was not long before
those sputterings evolved
into words and eventually
those words evolved into
phrases.
"Would you look at that?"
"I can't believe that?"
"Some people have all the
nerve."
It was at this point I made
a tactical error. I laid down
my newspaper and said,
"What has you all abuzz?"
"I am not all abuzz, I'll
have you to know."
I quickly apologized and
buried my nose back in my
newspaper story.
"I would like to give that
woman a piece of my
mind," my wife snapped.
This is the amazing thing
about my wife. She has
given me so many pieces of
her mind, I cannot believe
she has any left.
Furthermore, any piece of
her mind she can give to
someone else is one less she
can give to me. I take my
blessings where I find them.
Then she unfolded the
story she was reading. It
seems, according to the
newspaper, that Britney
Spears' mother has written a
book on parenting.
According to my Better Half,
the only expert advice she
could give would be how to
get pregnant and have a
baby. After that it was all
downhill, according to my
wife.
After she finished expos-,
tulating on the subject at


hand, she simmered down
to a few inaudible utter-
ances and I went back to my
newspaper. I just could not
get back into the story I had
been reading. I was thinking
about what my wife said
and I began thinking about
what it takes to become an
expert on anything.
My first consideration
was myself. What am I an
expert on?
I had to give that quite a
bit of thought. An expert, so
I reasoned, is someone who
knows more about a subject
than most other people do. I
made a long list, and one by
one eliminated each one on
that list.
It was then I had a brain-
storm.
No weatherman can pre-
dict when a brainstorm is
going to occur. None of the
technical advances in the
world today can predict this
phenomenon.
My question is when I do
have a brainstorm, do I
need an umbrella?
When the fury of that
brainstorm subsided a little
and the clouds lifted, I came
to one inevitable conclu-
sion: I am an expert on my
wife.
Let me be clear right
here. I am not an expert on
wives plural, but wife, sin-
gular. In particular, my wife.
For the next few
moments, I jotted down
areas of my expertise con-
cerning my wife.
For one, my wife is always
right. Even when she is
wrong, she is right, if you
know what I mean. I have
learned down through the
years that it is much easier
to admit that I am wrong
than to take the time and
pains to convince her that
she is wrong. Unlike a man,
women, wives in particular,
do not think in a straight
line.
When God created
women, he gave them
curves not just on their bod-
ies, but in their thinking, as
well. A husband wants to go
from A to B. His wife wants'
to go shopping between A
and B. It does not make
sense to a husband, but it
makes perfect sense to a
wife.
Another thing, when my


wife is talking she does not
like to be interrupted. This
is just common courtesy,
but it can be quite confusing
to the male side of the mar-
riage equation.
The difference between
husbands and wives comes
in this area. When a hus-
band is speaking and comes
to the end of a subject, he
pauses before he begins the
next subject. This is not the
case with his wife. "
My wife can speak on a
dozen different subjects
without pausing or taking a
breath. It is one of the mys-
terious miracles of God's
creation. It is confusing to
me because I think she is
talking about one subject
and by the time she is fin-
ished I am so utterly con-
fused I have no idea what
she just said.
I have invented the per-
fect response. "Yes, Dear.
You are right."
The only downside to this
is that a few days later, she
inquires about the conver-
sation and I have absolutely
no recollection of the chat
or the contents thereof.
Then I can always resort
to, "Yes, Dear. You are right."
To be honest, I need to
surrender my expertise to
what the Bible teaches.
"For this cause shall a
man leave his father and
mother, and shall be joined
unto his wife, and they two
shall be one flesh."
Ephesians 5:31 (KJV)
"Nevertheless let every
one of you in particular so
love his wife even as him-
self; and the wife see that
she reverence her husband."
Ephesians 5:33 (KJV)
The marriage commit-
ment requires both parties
become an expert on each
other.

Looking for A Good Home


P(uppie)s In A Pod


This week's canine Fur
Kids from Polk County
Animal Control are like
peas in a pod, and would
probably love to go
together to their new
family and home. Both
are tricolor male cur
mixes. Each came to the
shelter alone, but now
they are penmates and
get along together.
Thirty-eight animals
were adopted during the
Oct. 20 Adopt-a-thon.


First is this brown,
white and black pup. He
has lots of energy and
loves to run circles
around kennel employ-
ee Debbie Fuller when
she takes him out of the
pen. This cutie came to
the shelter as a stray. ID
#A406630






This 4-month-old
male is brown, gray and
black. Fuller says the
gray is unique to this
kind of dog and adds a
touch of class. Every
puppy she has seen with
this gray color showed a
sweet personality. ID
#A406632

What ,; .
says aLutumn
more than
pumpkins and
cranberries?
Pumpkins make us think
of Halloween and holidays
to come. Cranberries seem
to be thought of most often
for Thanksgiving and
Christmas. Perhaps that's
because they go so well with
turkey and ham, traditional
holiday meats. But that
round, tart, red berry can be
used for desserts, salads,
main dishes, breads and
drinks all through the year.
Fresh cranberries usually
are available from mid-
September through
December; peak harvest
months are October and
November, according to the
Cape Cod Cranberry
Growers' Assn.
The berries can be stored
in the refrigerator for up to
four weeks, or frozen for
year-round use. When freez-
ing, double wrap in plastic
without washing, the associ-
ation recommends. For the
best results, don't thaw the
cranberries before using
them in recipes.
Since we recently featured
recipes using pumpkin, this
week we'll concentrate on
cranberries, which not only
give a zing to many foods,
but also are a healthy treat.
Let's start with a request
from one of our readers for a
delicious cranberry relish;
this is from the Cape Cod
Cranberry Growers' Assn.

Cranberry Orange Relish
4 cups fresh cranberries
2 whole oranges
1 cup sugar, quartered
Grind fresh cranberries
and oranges in a meat
grinder using a small disk.
Pour into a bowl and add 1
cup of sugar or more to taste.
Mix all ingredients well, chill
and serve.


The rest of our recipes
today come from Ocean
Spray Cranberries, Inc., and
offer some traditional and
some surprising ways to use
the bog berry.

Cranberry Chicken
Margarita
6 boneless, skinless chick-
en breast halves
2 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt
1 small garlic clove,
minced
1 cup Ocean Spray�
Whole Berry Cranberry
Sauce
3 tablespoons tequila
1 teaspoon lime juice
1-1/2 tbsp. chopped
cilantro
Lime wedges
Slice breasts in half hori-
zontally. Pound with a meat
mallet or rolling pin to about
3/8-inch thickness.
Heat oil in a large skillet
over medium heat. Add
chicken and cook until light-
ly browned, about 3 minutes
per side. Remove chicken to
a warm serving platter and
sprinkle lightly with coarse
salt. Cover loosely with foil;
keep warm until serving
time.
Add garlic to skillet and
cook over low heat 1 minute.
Stir in cranberry sauce and
tequila; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat. Simmer 5 min-
utes or until sauce is thick-
ened, stirring occasionally.
Stir in lime juice and
cilantro.
Spoon some of the sauce
over chicken. Sprinkle with
additional cilantro, if
desired. Serve immediately
with remaining sauce, lime
wedges and coarse salt.
Makes 6 servings.

kin ha-les
cut side
down on a cookie sheet
and lightly rub the skin
with half of the olive oil
to prevent it from
cracking.
Roast pumpkin
halves until tender, about
20-25 minutes. Cool and
scoop out pumpkin meat
into a medium mixing bowl.
In a large saucepan, heat
the chicken stock until hot;
set aside. Coat the bottom of
a second large saucepan
with remaining olive oil, and
sweat the onion and garlic
over medium heat, about 5
minutes. Add rice and cook
for 2 minutes, stirring often.
Add wine and simmer, stir-
ring often, until liquid has
been absorbed, about 2 min-
utes. Add half of the hot
chicken stock and continue
to cook, stirring constantly,
until most of the liquid has
been absorbed, about 10
minutes. Add remaining
chicken stock and reserved
pumpkin meat. Continue to
cook and stir until most of
the liquid has been
absorbed and the rice grains
are tender but not broken,
about 10 minutes. Fold in
Parmesan cheese, butter
and parsley, season with salt
and pepper. Serve the risotto
in bowls with the cranberry
brown butter sauce drizzled
around. Serves 4.
Recipe Variation: This
recipe works great with left-
over turkey! Just fold in 2
cups of picked turkey meat
during the last 10 minutes of
cooking.' Add 3/4 cup of
