Foster Care 'Hero' Honored As Point Of Light Winner


Some people just have an
abundance of love to give, and
one of those people - Bartow's
own Eleanor Hall - was recog-
nized by Governor Charlie Crist
as this week's Point of Light win-
ner.
The award was given in honor
of Adoption Awareness Month.
An active foster and adoptive
parent for 20 years, Ms. Hall has
borne two children, adopted
eight children and been a foster
mother to almost 150 children.
"Eleanor's love for fostering
and adopting has brightened the
lives of children and families in
her community," said Governor
Crist. "Her encouragement and
guidance creates a supportive
environment for children to real-
ize their full potential."
"It is a great day in the state to
recognize someone with such a
great heart," Lt. Governor Jeff
Kottkamp said during the award
presentation Thursday at
Heartland for Children in
Bartow.
Ms. Hall began her service as
a foster parent in 1987. In 1991,
she became an adoptive parent
when she adopted a sibling
group in need of a home.
Since then, she has adopted
eight children, many of whom
are now adults. She continues to
serve as a foster parent housing
up to eight children in her home.
She also searches for potential


adoptive families for the chil-
dren she is unable to adopt her-
self.
"During the past 20 years,
Eleanor has been a hero to foster
and adoptive children in her
community. She has opened her
heart and her home while pro-
viding stability, normalcy, and a
sense of belonging to children in
her care," said Bob Butterworth,
secretary for the Florida
Department of Children and'
Families.
"She is a shining example of
the impact we all can have on
Florida's children and I congrat-
ulate her on this award.
"You are a hero to all the chil-
dren in your care, and to the
community."
In the final week of
November, the Points of Light
award recognizes an individual
whose outstanding service ben-
efits foster and adopted chil-
dren. Adoption Awareness
Month is celebrated nationwide
throughout the month of
November.
The Governor's Points of Light
Award, sponsored by Royal
Caribbean International and
Celebrity Cruises, recognizes a
Florida resident or organization
that demonstrates exemplary
service to the community. Award
recipients are announced week-
ly.
A panel of judges comprised


ft leaders n ihe areas of volun-
leLimiin and erx-ice evaluate all
nominations and make recom-
mendations to the Governor.
The Volunteer Florida
Foundation manages the pro-
gram.

City To Be Exclusive Provider

Of'Roll-Off' Trash Dumpsters


Beginning Jan. 1, the
Bartow sanitation depait-
ment will have the exclu-
sive right to provide and
service roll-off dumpsters
of the type used to collect
debris at construction
sites.
City commissioners
unanimously passed on
first reading Monday
night two related ordi-
nances requiring that
only city-furnished roll-
off containers be used
within the city limits. The
ordinances will come up
for a public hearing and
final passage at the com-
mission's Dec. 17 meet-
ing.
Solid Waste Dir. Daryl
Stewart told the commis-
sion that Bartow's fees for
the roll-off containers are)
substantially lower than
the fees charged by com-


mercial haulers and other
municipalities.
Bartow will charge
$253.70 for each "pull" to
empty one of the jumbo
dumpsters, compared to
$300 to $500 charged by
commercial haulers,
Stewart said.
"We're the lowest in
the county, hands down,"
he said.
Commissioner Pat
Huff asked Stewart if any
of the commercial
haulers had made com-
plaints about his propos-
al that the city be the
exclusive provider of the
service.
"I haven't heard any,"
he said.
The city began offering
roll-off service in 2004,
and charges a 10 percent
franchise fee to commer-
cial haulers who provide


Main Street was officially opened during Bartow's
Christmas parade last Friday. City officials and members
of the Community Redevelopment. Agency and
Chamber of Commerce took part in the ribbon-cutting
ceremony to celebrate com-
pletion of streetscaping.
Helping cut the supersized
red ribbon were (from left)
Mary Jordan, Cliff Daniels,
Terrie Lobb, Linda

Hunter, James Clements,

the service within the city
limits.
That option will end
on Jan. 1; the exception
will be customers who
have contracts with pri-
vate haulers. Existing
contracts may be hon-
ored for up to six months
under terms of the ordi-
nance.
For longer contracts,
the city has the option of
buying out the remaining
time, Stewart said.
The city has two roll-
off trucks and 62 contain-
ers; Stewart said the city
eventually will double its
inventory of containers,
which cost $2,100 to
$3,100, depending on
their size.
The city also can offer
the service to customers
outside the city limits, he
said.


Tax Reform 'A Start, Not


A Total Fix,' Faux Says


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

The proposed property
tax reform amendment
scheduled to go to the vot-
ers on Jan. 29 "is a start,
not a total fix," in the opin-
ion of Polk County
Property Appraiser Marsha
Faux.
But she's betting it won't
make it to the ballot.
Opponents have said
they will file a challenge to
the constitutionality of the
portability provision of the
four-part tax package, and
Ms. Faux believes the
amendment will be strick-
en from the ballot by the
courts.
That already happened
to a proposal for a "super
exemption" proposed by.
the Legislature earlier in
the year.

Christmas, like this one from Morningstar Missionary
Baptist Church. (More photos on Page 14A.) - Photos by

Ms. Faux explained the
features of the amend-
ment and its impact on
local government in a talk
to the Bartow Rotary Club.
By way of background,
she said that tax reform
already mandated by the
Legislature called for a
reduction in local tax mill-
ages.
In Polk County, the roll-
back was 9 percent. That
represented a saving of $40
to $120 a year for most
homeowners, she said.
City and county com-


missions can restore taxes
to the previous level only
by a "super majority" vote
of two-thirds, which works
out to four members of a
five-member commission.
And commissions that
nullify the previous roll-
back will lose their share of
state sales tax revenues.
After a court threw out
the "super exemption"
amendment, the
Legislature reconvened
and proposed a four-part

Two Veteran Members Leaving

Makeup of Zoning

Board Changing


Two veteran members
of Bartow's planning and
zoning board have notified
the city commission that
they will not accept reap-
pointment, and three citi-
zens who have been vocal
on planning issues have
applied to take their place.
Michael J. Marchman,
who served for nearly two
decades as a city commis-
sioner and later served
multiple terms on the zon-
ing board - most of them
as chairman - sent the
city a notice asking that he
not be considered for
reappointment.
Drew Guffey also sent
the city notice that he will
not seek another term on
the board.
That leaves Bo Raul-
erson, Susan Brewer and
Gail Schreiber as the three
remaining members.
Schreiber, who was
appointed at the recom-
mendation of Commis-
sioner Leo Longworth two
years ago, is seeking reap-
pointment.
Three Bartowans have
filed applications seeking
appointment:
* Cliff Daniels, a partner
in Sunbelt Forest Products,
who has addressed the city
a number of times on
"smart growth" method-
ologies.
* Corey Stutte, a land
development planner for


the Polk County Commis-
sion who is pursuing a
doctorate in public affairs.
* Trish Pfeiffer, co-
owner of Pfeiffer
Construction, Inc., and
Simply Storage, Inc.
Commissioner Adrian
Jackson called the appli-
cants "three great candi-
dates" for the board.
The zoning board
reviews and makes recom-
mendations to the comn-
mission on all annexa-
tions, comprehensive plan
amendments, zoning and
rezoning applications, and
other issues having to do
with land use planning
and growth of the city.
Because of the impor-
tance of the zoning board,
commissioners decided to
make the selection jointly.
Most appointments to
advisory boards are made
on the recommendation of
one commissioner, but
commissioners have
decided to collaborate on
appointments to the
Community Redevelop-
ment Agency, and as of
this week, to the zoning
board.
Longworth told the
commission that the zon-
ing board "is probably the
only board that's not
diverse," a euphemism for
having one or more
minorities among its
members.

New FM City Manager Speaks to Garden Club Alturas Relay


Fort Meade Garden
Club members got
acquainted with new Fort
Meade City Manager Fred
Hilliard during their Nov.
28 meeting.
Hilliard told of his ties
to Fort Meade; his grand-
father lived here, and his
father now resides in
Hardee County. Because of
this family history, he said,
he was very excited when
he saw that a position was
available for city manager
and, now that he is a resi-
dent, he said, he feels that
he belongs here.
He spoke of Fort
Meade's natural beauty,
charm and rural character.
As a proponent of plan-
ning and in what he calls
his "front door approach,"
the city manager wishes to


"emphasize the assets
while cleaning up the eye-
sores."
Garden Club member
June Shirley asked if the
southwest corner of
Broadway and Charleston
might be returned to a
park, as this intersection is
the front door of Fort
Meade. Discussion fol-
lowed as to ways that
sprucing up this corner
might be feasible.
Hilliard said he feels his
number one priority is the
infrastructure of Fort
Meade. He mentioned
water, sewage, and cost-
effective electricity. In
order to improve these
services, he said, the com-
mission must use Fort
Meade's resources and
assets to generate more
money. Peace River Park,
Alafia Rendezvous, and
Florida Flywheelers are
three of the resources that
are going untapped, he
said.
He is intent on using his
skills to make Fort Meade a
better place for its citizens
and asked for patience as


he works to make this hap-
pen.
The Garden Club pre-
sented him with a gift and
a complimentary ticket to
the Historical Museum
barbecue (where he was
later seen serving slaw).
During a business
meeting with Bettye
Barnett presiding, mem-
bers were reminded of the
Historic House Tour on
Dec. 15, the Garden Club
Christmas Luncheon to be
held at Peace River
Country Club on Dec. 17,
and a city-wide yard sale
for Relay For Life to be
held on Feb. 1 and 2.
Alice Speith reported bn
a product called Conserve
to eliminate the thrips that
are destroying plumbego
and knockout roses in the
community.
June Shirley also report-
ed on her progress making
contact with the owner of
the corner lot next to the
old Hardee building, and
the possibility of redevel-
oping the old "Triangle
Park" property into a new
park.

Things I Should Have Learned





Baking Christmas Cookies


By DAWN WADE
StaffWriter

Well, it's Christmas time again, which
means time for cookies, cakes and other
assorted baked goods, none of which I
can cook.
If pressed to bring a sweet treat to a
holiday outing, I choose the Pillsbury
slice and bake cookies and call it a day.
One shining year, I opened a box of
Keebler cookies, arranged them on a
plate, and fed them to guests. I called
them special "elf" cookies. I fooled no
one.
This year, I am going to take pride in
my baking, and have even been invited to
one of those cookie exchanges.
I can't show up with 12 bags of Chips
Ahoy, so I went to the experts, and got not
only a great recipe, but a reminder of
what the holidays are really about -
being with family.
In Bartow, there is no one to ask about
baking better than Janet Skinner, owner
of the Cookie Jar Bakeshop.
Mrs. Skinner does not even vaguely
resemble a baker. She's all glam with long
blond hair, and she, and the other
women who work in the shop, have fig-
ures that resemble aerobics instructors
instead of a person dealing with choco-
late all day. They also are suspiciously
clean all the time. When I am done bak-
ing, flour is all over me, but the women at
the Cookie Jar are always impeccable.
On Monday I visited the Cookie Jar and
met Mrs. Skinner's stepfather, Bjorn
Gade, who visits several times a year to
make his special Danish Butter Cookies
for the shop.
His family owned a bakery in
Denmark, and the recipe for the cookies
was developed by his'grandfather.
Keeping the recipe a family tradition,
every year he visits his stepdaughter to
make the cookies, and reconnect with his
family.
"It's just something special we do," she
-said, smiling. "We call it our cookie work-
shop."
While the butter cookies turn out both


yummy and, in the case of Santa faces,
adorable, they are not for the beginning
baker.
But watching Mrs. Skinner and her
stepfather work, it looked so fun. They
smiled and laughed, and seemed to be
having such a fun time, I decided that
baking this year would be for me after all,
and I was going to find someone to assist
me.
Mrs. Skinner was happy to share a
more appropriate recipe for beginners,
but warned me the recipe will make a lot
of cookies.
If the dough turns out to be too much,
portions may be frozen for up to six
months.

Cookie Jar Sugar Cookies
16 ounces butter
16 ounces shortening
56 ounces sugar
8 eggs
.8 ounces vanilla extract
68 ounces flour
1.3 ounces baking powder
.4 ounces salt
Cream together butter, shortening and
sugar.
Add egg and liquids.
Then mix in dry ingredients a little at a
time.
Bake at 350 degrees, until lightly
browned.

Use the recipe as inspiration, Mrs.
Skinner said.
Bakers may want to try another flavor
of extract - orange or peppermint - or
add color to the basic dough.
When decorating, she advised adding
light icing colors first, and not to forget to
add sprinkles before baking.
"Use whatever colors you want.
Anything goes now for Christmas," she
said.
Mrs. Skinner advised using fun cookie
cutters and said magazines were a great
resource for decoration ideas.
"It's your cookie," she said. "Do what
looks good to you."

* U.S. News and World Report has
named the International Baccalaureate
School at Bartow High School the third

visitors could be seen downtown long
after the last float, visiting Santa, eating,
and enjoying the entertainment.

Christmas.
* Bartow Zonta Club's Breakfast with
Santa offered a fun, affordable way to cel-
ebrate Christmas with the kids. Children
met with Santa, and got an opportunity to
do a few crafts.
* Christmas is a great time to clean out
your cupboards and make room for a
fresh start for the new year. Why not
donate clothing, toys and other items to

Spessard Holland, As His Hometown Knew Him


. Selection of Spessard L. Holland
as the next person to be honored
in the naming of a Polk County
school is such an obvious choice
that it seems almost an oversight
that it didn't happen decades ago.
Dozens of Polk County's more
than 100 schools are named for
distinguished citizens - mostly
from the educational field - but
few if any can match Holland's
record of public service.
Founder of a small law office
that grew to become Holland and
Knight - one of the largest law
firms in Florida - Spessard
Holland was a lifelong resident of
Bartow, and one of Florida's most
remarkable public servants.
After serving Polk County as
county solicitor and county judge,
he was elected a member the
Florida Senate, then governor, and
finally a United States senator.
A veteran of World War I,
Holland was governor during
America's involvement in World
War II, 1941 to 1945, and served in
the Senate from 1946 until 1971.


He retired from office in 1971, and
died quietly at his home a few
months later.
He never lost an election.
He is one of only a handful of
American statesmen to have draft-
ed and shepherded through to
passage an amendment to the
United States Constitution: the
23rd Amendment, which out-
lawed the poll tax.
He is less well remembered for
an action as governor which con-
tinues to play a significant role in
Bartow's economy: he established
the District 1 office of the State
Road Dept. (now the Florida Dept.
of Transportation) in Bartow.
His record of service has been
widely reported since his name
was selected for the new elemen-
tary school to be built north of
Bartow.
Members of his hometown
recall other stories of his life and
career.

As a child, he was a classmate of
Jim Van Fleet - later to become


General James A: Van Fleet, com-
mander of Allied forces in the
Korean War.
Van Fleet used to enjoy telling
friends that he and his friend often
walked to school together.
You could tell which one was
Spessard, he said; he was the one
wearing shoes.

As his first term in the Senate
ended, Holland told friends that
he was not going to campaign for
a second term. People knew who
he was and what he stood for, he
said, and could decide for them-
selves if they wanted him to serve
another term.
Some of his professional col-
leagues insisted that he face polit-
ical realities and hit the campaign
trail to win another term.
He did, and he did.

Being able to put names with
faces of hundreds, even thou-
sands, of citizens is a valuable tal-
ent for a politician.
It was not his strongest suit.


But his wife, Mary, was a master
of that skill, and stood at her hus-
band's side, quietly identifying the
next person to whom he would be
speaking.

At a community banquet -
held in a giant hangar at Bartow
Municipal Airport - which hon-
ored Senator Holland after his
retirement, he was praised as one
of the few members of Congress
who returned home from
Washington no wealthier than
when he left.
Holland acknowledged that he
lived in a home on South
Broadway which; while comfort-
able, was less than palatial.
His good friend W.H. Stuart, Sr.,
a millionaire several times over,
lived across the street in a magnif-
icent estate.
People coming to Bartow to visit
the Hollands typically would drive
up to Stuart home, he recalled,
assuming it was the one in which a
United States senator lived.

no storms hit Florida."

FULL CIRCLE / By C. J. MOUSER

Magic at the Beach


I have noticed that
when the moon comes up
over the ocean, it can be
the palest sliver of a thread
of light against the black
sky, but it will cast a'bril-
liant reflection on the
water, cutting a wedge of
luminescence that
demands to be stared at
until the moon reaches a
higher point and the
reflection wanes.
It's one of the magic
things about the ocean - a
compelling force that can-
not be ignored and cannot
be denied.
My daughters and I go
to the beach in the evening
and stay until dark and
then go home. One
Saturday evening, at the
normal time to leave, I
began wading toward the
shore but Jillian stopped
me.
"You promised to stay
until after dark," she
reminded me.
Over the last hour we
had been buffeted by
waves, and pulled on
relentlessly by a hint of a
rip tide, and I was exhaust-
ed from trying to keep my
balance.
"Jillian, I'm beat," I com-
plained.
"But you have to stay
and see the sparkles.
Remember I told you when
Karli and I were here the
other night that we saw
sparkles in the water?"
It seems to me that I
read somewhere about this
phenomenon: tiny little
flickers of light that ride in
the waves at night. I have
read about it, but never
experienced it. Now Jillian
was bound and deter-
mined to see to it that I did.
"I can see it another
night," I said.
"That's what you said
last night."
"Well, I'm saying it again
tonight!"
She went silent, that
deadly kind of silence that


says, "You have disap-
pointed me grievously, and
I don't know how I'll ever
forgive you." This type of
silence, like the moonlight
wedge on the water, can-
not be ignored, cannot be
denied.
"All right," I said with a
sigh.
"Yay!" she declared, as I
waded back into the water.
"Just kneel down beside
me and watch."
She waved her hands
back and forth under'the
water, and then grunted in
disappointment.
"Where are they? I hope
it wasn't just a one time
thing!"
She splashed some
more, and squinted. I
managed to maintain my
balance and my patience,
and it finally dawned on
me that Jillian wasn't inter-
ested in seeing the sparkles
in the water, she was inter-
ested in my seeing them.
It occurred to me that it
was important to her to
share this with me, as I had
shared countless amazing
things with her over the
years just to see her reac-
tion, to relive and enjoy it
through her eyes.
"Maybe if we move out
where the water is calmer,"
I suggested, somewhat
reluctantly.
Rejuvenated by my sud-
den interest, she grabbed
me by the hand and
dragged me until we
reached the point where
the waves were just begin-
ning to crest.
"I saw one!" she cried.
"Did you see it?"
"I... I think so." I had
seen something, just a tiny
glint in the darkness, but it
could have been a frag-
ment of moonlight on a
ripple.
"Further!" she demand-
ed, and grabbed my hand
again.
Then, suddenly, I
stopped and stared at


Jillian's shirt.
"I think I see some-
thing," I whispered.
Were my eyes playing
tricks on me? Or were there
really tiny little stars stuck
to her sleeves? They were
winking out so quickly I
wasn't sure if I was actually
seeing them or not.
Jillian whooped with
victory when she saw
them.
"You haven't seen any-
thing. Watch this!" she
replied enthusiastically.
She was wearing a dark T-
shirt, and using the tail,
she dipped up a generous
amount of water that was
filled with what appeared
to tiny fireflies.
I gasped aloud as I
gazed at the twinkling
lights against the dark fab-
ric. It was as though she
was holding the night sky
in the tail of her T-shirt.
"Look at them all," I
said. "It's like being only a
few feet from Heaven!"
"I told you! I was so
afraid that you wouldn't get
to see them!"
Her joy at having shared
this with me was almost
overwhelming."
"I knew that you would
love it," she said, and I
could hear the smile in her
voice. We explored the
greenish-white glow
around our hands and feet
as we moved through the
water and filled our T-shirt
tails over and over, watch-
ing the tiny lights wink on
and off.
I had read about this
phenomenon but never
experienced it. Jillian, in
her stubbornness, had now
seen to it that I had, and I
won't ever forget it. She
had turned the tables and
enjoyed the event through
my eyes.
Thank goodness that
her stubborn streak is what
it is; a force that cannot be
ignored - and cannot be
denied.


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

The 21st Century Toothbrush


When my parents built
their home in 1948, it had
a luxury called an attic fan.
It drew air through open
windows and doors,
expelling the hot air
through the louvers in the
attic, creating a pleasant
breeze as it drew fresh (if
not cool) air into the
home.
True air conditioning
was only for the wealthy,
and few of them at that.
SIn the ensuing years, air
conditioning for homes
and offices became an
enhancement - only
slightly lower on the eco-
nomic food chain - rather
than a luxury. Air condi-
tioned automobiles
became a status symbol
for those who could afford
the reduced gasoline
mileage back when gas
cost 29 cents a gallon.
Our standard of living
today is higher, and our
tolerance for even casual
discomfort is lower.
Through the years, we
all raised our sights, and
eventually color TV, power
windows, and cell phones
were lifted from the luxu-
ries of yesteryear to the
must-haves of today.
I have never been on the
leading edge of such luxu-
ries, as my children will
surely affirm. This is due to
an economically conserva-
tive lifestyle (I do not find
"squeaky" to be all that
insulting a term) and my
wish not to own today's
luxury that is tomorrow's
useless relic.
I made the mistake of
thinking that eight-track
stereo tapes were the
sound of the future. I have

several of them.
One of the many tech-
nologies, the cutting edge
of which I did not find it
necessary to place myself
on (quick, somebody, call
an English teacher!) is
toothbrushes.
It has never offended
me to use a toothbrush
which has my dentist's
name embossed into it. I
figure if it is good enough
for him (or her), it is good
enough for me.
Of course, I never real-
ized that if the dentist-
supplied toothbrush didn't
do a very good job, that
meant increased trips to
the dentist. I guess I
should have asked if the
dentist used the same style
of toothbrush, but I am a
trusting soul.
I have noticed over the
years that toothbrush
technology now advances
with a planned obsoles-
cence usually associated
with computers. -
I don't know how many
toothbrushes you have to
sell to support a $100 mil-
lion TV ad campaign
designed to convince you
that the one you bought
(or got from your dentist)
three weeks ago is inade-
quate at today's bathroom
basin.
I have concluded that
toothbrushes, like mat-
tresses, come in too (stick
with me here) degrees of
firmness:
Too firm and too soft.
(See, I told you to stick
with me.)
A few years ago, after
our last child graduated
from college and we paid
off the Buick, Mary and I


splurged and bought elec-
tric toothbrushes.
- Not only do they relieve
us of the exhaustion and
monotony of moving the
toothbrush up and down
or back and forth
(depending on the results
of the latest toothbrushing
research); they have little
timer that goes off when
you have brushed your
teeth for the recommend-
ed two minutes.
Actually, mine goes off
after two minutes and 20
seconds, which means I
am spending 121.33 min-
utes a year too much time
brushing my teeth. In that
amount of time, I could
sleep in for a couple of
extra hours one day a year.
Now there is a new elec-
tric toothbrush on the
market which not only
tells you when your two
minutes (plus or minus 20
seconds) is up, but also
tells you when it is time to
switch from one side of
your mouth to the other. I
don't know if it breaks this
down by uppers and low-
ers. Perhaps that will be in
next month's model.
It also tells you if you are
brushing too hard, which
could remove (1) a layer of
enamel from your teeth or
(2) a layer of silver from
your fillings.
I will not be rushed into
this latest high tech devel-
opment. I am waiting for a
toothbrush which also has
a laser level to help me
hold it precisely parallel to
the floor.
We might as well get
things right, okay?

Giving money?
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging con-
sumers to check out chari-
table organizations before
making any donations.
As the holidays get
under way, charities are
gearing up for their busiest
time of the year. Many col-
lect about half their annu-
al donations in the short
time between
Thanksgiving ard New
Year's Day.
Florida law 'requires
most charities that do
business in the state -
regardless of where they
are headquartered - to
register with the
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services
and provide financial
information about income
and expenditures. There
are 12,597 charitable
organizations registered
with the state.
"The number of chari-
ties registered with the
department continues to
rise,. and the barrage of
requests for help that con-
sumers receive can be
daunting," Bronson said.
"But consumers have a
wealth of information at
their fingertips if they just
take a little time to
research a charity to
ensure it is legitimate and
that donations are being
spent in a prudent man-
ner."
Consumers should
always make sure a charity
is registered before donat-
ing and check on the com-
plaint history.
However, even if a char-
ity is properly registered,
consumers should get
information about how
donations are spent.
The department does
not endorse any charity,
even those properly regis-
tered. In addition, the
department does not have
authority to dictate how a
charity spends its funds,
but does provide financial
information so consumers

can make informed deci-
sions about contributing.
An annual "Gift Givers'
Guide" lists all registered
charities and provides a
breakdown of how much is
spent on fundraising and
administrative costs, such
as salaries and operating
expenses, and how much
actually goes toward pro-
gram services.
The guide also includes
the names of professional
solicitors and consultant
who are working on behalf
of a charitable organiza-
tion.
"Unfortunately, some
con artists don't think
twice about taking advan-
tage of someone's generos-
ity and giving spirit,"
Bronson said. "That's why
it is important for con-
sumers to find out if a
charity has registered or is
exempt. Failure to proper-
ly register should raise a
huge red flag with con-
sumers."
Bronson provided the
following tips to consider
when deciding whether to
donate to an organization:
* Don't judge an organi-
zation based on an
impressive-sounding
name. Find out what it
actually does.
* Be wary of emotional
appeals and organizations
that have only vaguelplans
for spending the funds
they collect.
* Never give cash. Write
a check payable only to an
organization, not to an
individual.
* Be wary of organiza-
tions that offer to send a
"runner" to pick up your
donation. Reputable char-
ities are willing to wait for
your contribution.
* Ask the organization
to send you its financial
report and written infor-


mation about its activities.
* Get the organization's
federal tax identification
number, which you will
need to claim your contri-
bution as a tax deduction.
* If an organization is
not registered, contact the
department.

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

I survived another
Thanksgiving with all the
trimmings.
The Gracious Mistress
of the Parsonage has out-
done herself once again
with our Thanksgiving
dinner. I still do not know
how she accomplishes this
feat. Each year her dinner
is more fabulous than the
last.
Someone, and no
names will be divulged
here, suggested the reason
each Thanksgiving dinner
is better than the previous
year's has a lot to do with
my memory. This "name-
less" person opined that
my memory was so bad, if
I was served a sliced turkey
sandwich I would have the
same opinion.
You would think a per-
son would take a compli-
ment where they could
find it in this compliment-
challenged-era.
Regardless of the senti-
ments flying around our
h6me, I still believe this
Thanksgiving dinner was
the best I have ever partic-
ipated in.
The thing that makes
any Thanksgiving dinner a
success is the celebrated
guest of honor. I'm refer-
ring of course, to Mr. Tom
T. Turkey, D.D. (Delectably
Delicious). What
Thanksgiving would be
proper without his pres-
ence?
Everybody knows the
story that Benjamin
Franklin wanted the turkey
to be the national bird
instead of the noble eagle
now embracing this posi-
tion. How thankful we are
that Mr. Franklin, success-
ful in so many areas of his
life, failed in this one.
Imagine a Thanksgiving
dinner if the guest of


honor was some scrawny
eagle. Eagle gravy does not
even sound good to me.
It is my humble opinion
that God ordained the
turkey to adorn the
Thanksgiving table. Who
am I to fool around with
sovereignty? Among the
many things I am thankful
for around our
Thanksgiving table is the
wisdom of God in all
things practical.
Thanksgiving without
the turkey would be like
Christmas without
Rudolph the red-nosed
reindeer. Who would Santa
get to guide his sleigh on
those stormy Christmas
Eves?
Maybe that is not a
good comparison. How
about this one?
Thanksgiving without the
turkey would be like a kiss
without a squeeze.
A kiss is good, but a kiss
with a squeeze is far better.
Maybe I had better
move along before I get
into any deeper trouble.
After all, it's Thanksgiving,
not Valentine's Day.
At Thanksgiving time,
there are many things to
be thankful for. I am sure
this list is all but infinite
for most people. I have
such a list and toward the
top of my list is something
I am truly thankful for this
time of the year.
Toward the top of my
list of things to be thankful
for, I am thankful I am not
a vegetarian.
I will suffer any veg-
etable, excluding broccoli,
on my way to some nicely
roasted turkey. Everybody
knows that broccoli is not
really a vegetable. It is a
cross between a tree and a
toadstool. Moreover, I get
cross every time I see it on
the table.
Let me say right here


that I have nothing against
people who are vegetari-
ans. I have the greatest
respect for those who
choose such a lifestyle.
After all, this is America
and if someone chooses to
be a vegetarian, not only
do they have the right, but
also they certainly have
my blessing.
Personally, I am not a
vegetarian. I do not think
vegetables are all they are
cooked up to be. A veg-
etable by any other name
still leaves a bad taste in
my mouth.
The only vegetable that
I have any degree of
respect for is the pumpkin.
A nice slice of pumpkin pie
is a worthy toast at the end
of a delicious turkey din-
ner. And, if the turkey is up
to its stuffing, two slices of
pumpkin pie are in order.
Any turkey worth its
gravy, in my opinion,
deserves two slices of this
delectable vegetable.
Now, let me repeat,
there is nothing wrong
with being a vegetarian. In
fact, I wish more people
were vegetarians. I would
support any politician who
made one of their platform
objectives to increase the
population of vegetarians
in this country.
As long as they did not
force their opinion on
Yours Truly.
There are two basic rea-
sons why I. would like to
see more vegetarians in
our country. First, they
could eat my share of veg-
etables. In fact, I would
insist that every
Thanksgiving dinner
where I am present at least
one vegetarian should
grace the table.
I am not suggesting they
sit next to me, which
would be a little too much
for me. But I would like


them in close proximity so
all my vegetables could be
directed their way.
I would like this vege-
tarian to sit in relation to
the direction the vegetable
dishes are being passed
around the table. It would
be nice if all vegetable
dishes would stop with
them.
But there is a more
important reason I am in
favor of vegetarians. With a
proliferation of vegetari-
ans, it only goes to reason
that there would be more
turkey for me to eat at
Thanksgiving time.
A passage in the Bible
reminds me that the tenor
of my life should be that of
Thanksgiving. "Rejoice in
the Lord always: and again
I say, Rejoice. Let your
moderation be known
unto all men. The Lord is
at hand. Be careful for
nothing; but in every thing
by prayer and supplication
with thanksgiving let your
requests be made known
unto God." Philippians
4:4-6 (KJV).
Just as the turkey was
made for carving, so my
life was made for praising.

Forgiveness


Do not judge others, and God will not judge you; do not condemn others, and God will not
condemn you; forgive others, and God will forgive you (Luke 6:37). There are many verses in the
Bible like this one that tell us that we should forgive those who have offended or insulted us in
one way or another. Often, relationships between families and friends have been destroyed
because of the hardening of the heart and the refusal to forgive others for something that they
may have said or done. Because we are close to our loved ones, we may feel that we can say
things to them that we would never say to others. Although the spirit of forgiveness is not always
easy, forgiveness is usually more important to those who have been offended than to those who
have caused the offense.


Quite often, a person may not even
realize that they have said or done
something that disturbs us, and
frequently a person's words or
actions may simply be
misinterpreted. Forgiving others as
God forgives us is necessary
in order to live our lives as our
Heavenly Father requires.
Forbearing one another, and
forgiving one another, if any Man
have a quarrel against any: even as
Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
K.J.V. Colossians 3:13

Check Before Joining A

Health Club This New Year


Consumers who might
be considering giving a
health club membership
as a holiday gift or joining
a gym as part of a New
Year's resolution to get in
shape, will want to take
some time to check out the
club before signing a con-
tract.
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging con-
sumers to do their home-
work - or their wallet may
be the. only thing that gets
lighter.
The Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services
regulates health clubs
under the Health Studio
Act, which provides some
protections for consumers
in situations where the
studio is not complying
with Florida law.
The facilities are
required to register with
the department, and many
are also required to post a
bond to protect members
in case the club goes out of
business.
"We see a lot of new
health clubs starting up
each year and, unfortu-
nately, a number of-them
close down as well,"
Bronson said. "I think a
gym is a good investment
in one's health, but people
need to make sure it's a
solid investment."
Currently, there are


1,741 health clubs regis-
tered in Florida; during the
past year, 339 clubs went
out of business.
Under the law, a con-
sumer can cancel a con-
tract:
* Within three days of
signing a contract, exclu-
sive of holidays and week-
ends, but it must be done
in writing.
* If the health studio
goes out of business or
moves its facility more
than five driving miles
away from the original
location and fails to pro-
vide, within 30 days, a
facility of equal quality
located within the five
miles.
* If the person becomes
physically unable to use a
substantial portion of the
services for which he or
she contracted, until the
disability ends.
Bronson also recom-
mends consumers follow
these tips:
* Call the department's
helpline at 1-800-
HELPFLA (1-800-435-
7352) or 1-800-FLAYUDA
(1-800-352-9832) to make
sure that the health studio
is registered and to check
its complaint history.
* Find out if the studio
has posted a bond with the
department, as most clubs
that collect fees in advance
are required to do.
* Prior to joining, ask
about the club's cancella-


tion policy in case you
move or become physical-
ly unable to use the facility.
* Before signing up, visit
the club during the hours
you intend to use it to
determine whether it is
overcrowded.
* Find out whether any
of the amenities, such as
racquetball courts, cost
extra.
Bronson emphasized
that it is important to read
contracts thoroughly and
make sure that all promis-
es are made in writing.
Ask questions to make
sure you understand the
terms of your membership
contract.

Reflections on Faith


Blessings Often Flow From Getting Back to Basics


By ROGER CAMPBELL

Two thousand people
gathered in New York City
recently to remember and
celebrate an event that
happened there 150 years
ago.
World Magazine report-
ed the reason for the cele-
bration as follows:
"On Sept. 23, 1857,
Jeremiah Lanphier
climbed the stairs to the
third floor of a church on
Fulton Street in lower
Manhattan. He entered a
deserted lecture room and
at noon began to pray. Half
an hour later, one man
joined him. By 1 o'clock,
six men were praying.
Soon thousands of men
and women across the city
were praying each day in a
movement known as the
Fulton Street Revival."
The recent New York
meeting included the
unveiling of a statue of
Jeremiah Lanphier, the
prime mover in this North
American spiritual awak-
ening. Lanphier was a
quiet but zealous former
businessman who had
accepted an appointment
to be a city missionary for


the North Dutch Reformed
Church in a difficult area
to serve.
He often became dis-
couraged, but drew
strength from prayer to go
on. Thinking others might
also be helped by prayer,
he prepared printed invi-
tations for any who would
like to pray with him. The
prayer meetings were to
last an hour, but were
designed for people who
found it inconvenient to
stay more than five or 10
minutes.
By spring, many other
noon hour prayer meet-
ings had been started and
were taking place daily.
Some of NewYork's largest
churches were crowded to
capacity at noon, and even
police and fire depart-
ments opened their build-
ings for prayer services,
involving an estimated
50,000 praying people, but
this was only the begin-
ning of greater things.
Almost simultaneous to
the New York awakening,
was a smaller but signifi-
cant one in Hamilton,
Ontario, headed by Walter
Palmer, a physician, and
his talented wife, Phoebe,


who were holding revival
meetings.
Then, during the sec-
ond week in October, a
financial panic set in that
prostrated businesses and
turned the minds of many
to their inability to cope
with such severe problems
apart from the comfort
and power of prayer.
In his book, "The
Fervent Prayer," J. Edwin
Orr says, "It is almost
impossible not to connect
the three events, for in
them was demonstrated
the need of a religious
revival, the means by
which to accomplish it,
and the provision of divine
grace to meet the serious
situation in church and
society.
"From tiny springs of
prayer in New York and
preaching in Hamilton
came a flood soon to
envelop the world. The
United States received the
blessing first, then The
United Kingdom,
Australia, South Africa,
and South India."
Orr adds that within two
years, two million people
were brought to faith in
Christ and became mem-
bers of churches.
How did this great
growth come about?
Through prayer!
A respected journal on
my desk is open to an arti-
cle about strategies to
reach people with the life-
changing message of God's
love, featuring the groping
of church leaders to find
ways to communicate with
members of Generation X
and other age labels.
Perhaps we've forgotten
that the basic need of
every generation is simply
faith, not froth. And great
blessings flow to those
who return to the basics.

The Best Presents


Gifts of Self


Time for giving
With the winter holidays right around the
corner, it's time to start thinking of how we
can express our love and friendship to oth-
ers.
For many people, this means a major shop-
ping trip. And while those gifts can be lots of
fun, sometimes others appreciate gifts of
yourself even more.
The Mini Page explores some different
ways to give someone a gift this holiday sea-
son.
Gifts of yourself
Yes, you can give yourself away! How do
you do that?
* You can give something you've made.
* You can give some of your time or tal-
ents.
* You can share something you know.
These gifts of yourself can be more pre-
cious than presents we buy at the store.
Giving your talents
What do you do well? The talents you pos-
sess make great gifts for others.
* For example, you might offer to play
piano to entertain
people at a party or
meeting. You could
do magic tricks for a
younger friend's
birthday party.


Giving your time
People today are very busy. Sometimes the
most appreciated gift is
time.
* You might offer to
walk a neighbor's dog
while your neighbor is
working.
* Lawn work is a great gift, especially for
older people. Trees have shed their leaves,
and raking is hard work. You can give your
time to clean up a yard.

Sour neighborhood or family,
you might offer to watch and
play with them while Mom gets
some chores or shopping done.
* Spend some time at a local
senior center or home. Folks at these facilitieslove to
play cards or games, do crafts or just talk with young
kids.
* If you're good at sports, you might help
a younger kid who wants to get better. These
"lessons" would be a great gift of your abili-
ties.
* Do you love to take pictures? You might
offer to be your street's
"historian," taking pic-
tures of area kids as
you all grow up and I
keeping them in a
scrapbook.


Share something you know
* If you're a book lover, sharing your passion for
reading is a great gift for many people.
Younger kids love to be read to, and parents appre-
ciate a break to do things around the house.
Many older people have trouble seeing well enough

offer to read to some-
to read. You might

one who doesn't see
well.
* Are you a great
cook? The holidays are a wonderful time to show off
your knowledge in the kitchen.
It's always fun to make holi-
day cookies, and you can make
gifts of them toneighbors,
friends and relatives.
* Have you been on an inter-
esting trip? Family members
such as aunts and uncles, grandparents and cousins
might enjoy a presentation of your pictures. You could
share with them what you
learned about your desti-
S nation.
* If you're a technology
whiz, you might be able to


someone who is less
with a project.

The Polk County Democrat 9A


It's the holiday season
and everywhere people are
happy and excited . . .
except you. Instead, you're
feeling stressed and
depressed. It's called the
"holiday blues" and it's a
fairly common condition,
though one often hidden
behind false holiday
smiles.
One reason the holiday
season can seem depress-
ing is that it comes at a
time when we may be
mentally summing up the
year, especially its troubles
and shortcomings. Year-
end memories commonly
focus on problems of the
past year - illnesses, loss
of loved ones, work or rela-
tionship problems, .or
things falling short of our
expectations - rather
than the positive happen-
ings of the year.
The holidays are also a
busy time. Added to the
normal stresses of daily
living are the anxieties of
gift buying, holiday par-
ties, family issues, social
obligations and other
stress-inducers of this sea
son.
Holiday media images
can 'also leave us with


impossibly perfect holiday
expectations. Advertising,
TV shows, and magazine
stories are present won-
derful family holidays that
never happen in real life,
but still leave us feeling
that we're falling short of
how things should be. All
these complications of the
season can certainly leave
us feeling blue, but there
are steps to take to mini-
mize their effect on our
emotional state.
A healthy lifestyle is a
good start. Instead of
overeating or drinking
excessively because you're
feeling stressed, make
conscious decisions to
enjoy holiday food and
drink, but to do so in mod-
eration. At non-party
times, choose tasty low-fat
foods. You'll feel better and
avoid the stress of holiday
weight gain.
Other healthy lifestyle
decisions include getting
enough sleep and exercise.
A brisk daily walk in the
sunshine is a very effective
way to fight depression.
Studies also fine even
moderate exercise can
reduce stress and mild
depression.


You also want to stay
connected. Feeling sad
often causes people to
withdraw and isolate
themselves. Instead, make
a real effort to spend time
with friends, to call or
write those you care about
and to remember past
good times you've enjoyed
with these people.
Simply talking about
your holiday feelings with
friends can also help. Their
support and comfort can
make a real difference.
And while the holiday
blues are usually only tem-
porary and fairly mild, talk
to a counseling profes-
sional if your depression
feels deeper and more
than just a symptom of the
season.

Corner" is provided as a
public service by the

Association, the nation's

counseling professionals.

Home Safety Seminar Planned


Byrd Alzheimer's
Institute, in partnership
with the Hillsborough
County Department of
Aging Services and the
Hillsborough County
Sheriff's Office, is hosting
the second annual home
safety seminar for care-
givers.
The seminar will take
place Saturday, Dec. 8, at
the Ruskin Senior Center,
901 6th St. S.E., from 10:30
a.m. to 1 p.m.
Respite daycare will be
provided at no cost for
loved ones during the
workshop. RSVP is
required.
"The holiday season
can present many chal-
lenges for caregivers and
their loved ones," says
Melanie Meyer, chief of
external affairs, Byrd
Institute. "The home safety


seminar is designed to
address these challenges
in the home and prepare
caregivers to protect
themselves and keep their
loved ones safe during the
holiday season."
Special guest speaker
Dr. Ann Louise Barrick, a
clinical professor at the
University of North
Carolina-Chapel Hill and
director of psychology at
John Umstead Hospital,
will talk about the difficul-
ty of bathing persons with
dementia and tips on care-
giver safety.
Barrick has helped pro-
duce two training films on
methods for bathing. The
training video will be a
part of the seminar.
Representatives from
Arden Courts assisted liv-
ing facility will speak on
their Montessori program


and how to incorporate it
into the home.
Hillsborough County
Sheriff's Office will discuss
tips on keeping the home
safe and caring for loved
ones with disabilities and
other challenges including
Alzheimer's and Dementia
during the holidays.
In addition to the guest
speakers, there will be
give-aways, drawings, and
food.
Attendees must call
813-319-4115 to reserve a
seat.


Nutrition Notes
By Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN
for the American Institute for Cancer Research


Folate: Helpful or Harmful?


A recently published
Swedish study links higher
intake of folate, a B vita-
min required to safeguard
our DNA, with lower risk of
postmenopausal breast
cancer.
This is just the latest
among multiple studies
suggesting that folate may
help reduce risk for can-
cers of the colon, pan-
creas, esophagus, stom-
ach, breast and cervix.
However, with other
research showing that too
much folate can promote
cancer development,
where does the line fall
between benefit and pos-
sible harm?
Folate, involved in the
creation and repair of
DNA, is critical in ensuring
that our bodies' genetic
instruction manual is read
correctly.
Damaged DNA can cre-
ate changes in genes that
facilitate the growth and
development of cancer
cells. Connect the dots and
it's easy to see why so
much research is focused
on the folate-cancer link.
In the aforementioned
report from the Swedish
Malmo Diet and Cancer
Study, women whose diets
were highest in folate (rich
sources include dark green
leafy vegetables, dried
beans and fruit) were 44
percent less likely to devel-
op postmenopausal breast
cancer than women who
ate the least folate over the
nearly 10-year study.
Those with highest total
consumption of folate
from foods plus folic acid
(the form found in supple-
ments and fortified food)
showed a similar 41 per-
cent reduced risk when
compared to subjects with
the lowest intake.


But the evidence is not
always so straightforward.
An analysis of 23 studies
on folate and breast cancer
risk found mixed results.
When women were sep-
arated according to alco-
hol consumption, howev-
er, dietary folate had no
impact on breast cancer
risk among subjects who
rarely or never drank alco-
hol.
Conversely, women
who drank moderately (or
more) and had a high
folate intake reduced their
breast cancer risk by
almost 50 percent.
This difference was
noted even among those
women who consumed
one drink a day - an
important finding since
conflicting research sug-
gests that even moderate
drinking can increase
breast cancer risk; perhaps
a diet high in folate can
mitigate some of this risk
among women who con-
sume alcohol.
Yet, as is the nature of
the scientific process,
another analysis of 22
studies relating folate con-
sumption to breast cancer
risk found little if any
impact. The former analy-
sis investigated whether
inherited differences
might make folate more
important for some
women than others.
Such difference, namely
in the way our genes regu-
late folate metabolism,
might explain why folate
has an impact on cancer
risk for some but not oth-
ers (such a genetic dis-
crepancy has already been
noted for colon cancer). In
the case of breast cancer,
however, researchers were
unable to show a genetic
link.


Still, other research is
raising concerns that get-
ting too much folate could
promote cancer develop-
ment. Laboratory studies
suggest that once a small
tumor or polyp has
formed, extra folate may
actually encourage the
aggressive growth of can-
cer cells and silence so-
called suppressor genes.
Findings from the
Aspirin/Folate Polyp
Prevention Study seem to
support this hypothesis.
Among nearly 1,000 men
and women who previous-
ly had colon polyps
removed, those assigned
to take 1,000 micrograms
(mcg) of folic acid devel-
oped 67 percent more
advanced polyps than
those taking an inactive
placebo.
Note, however that the
supplements taken were
more than two-and-a-half
times the recommended
target for adults.
The bottom line: in the
case of folate, research
suggests that too much of
a good thing may be detri-
mental.
But take heart - eating
a healthy plant-based diet
will not put you at risk for
excess folate.
In the end, be mindful
of vitamin supplements
and certain nutrition bars
or cereals that provide 50
percent or more of the
daily value for folate; you'd
be surprised at how quick-
ly they can add up.
Instead, choose natural
food sources of folate that
also provide the beneficial
vitamins, minerals and
phytochemicals needed
for overall cancer protec-
tion.

settle Kickoff Raises $26,830 In Friendly Competition


Each year the Salvation
Army of Western Polk
CO)unty holds a friendly
competition that raises
money and gets the word
out that bell ringers are at
stores and shopping cen-
(ers.
Representatives from
the media and businesses
are paired in the
Media/Mogul Kettle
Kickoff to ring bells for
close to an hour and see
which team raises the
most money for the
Salvation Army.
This year and last year,
the event was held at
Lakeside Village in
Lakeland, around the tall
Christmas tree. Singers
from First Baptist Church
of the Mall offered season-
al songs, while teams rang
their bells.
Each team also was
joined by a member of the
Salvation Army board,


who had been out seeking
donations ahead of time to
"pad" the kettles.
Combined with the
money collected during
the Kettle Kickoff on Nov.
23, the event raised
$26,830.
The winner was Team
Goodness, with team
members Lesley and
Caroline Chambers (repre-
senting Lakeland City
Commissioner Jim
Verplanck); Peggy Kehoe,
managing editor of The
Polk County Democrat;
and Dr. Jack Stone,
Salvation Army board
member. Their total was
$9,844. Team Hope was
second wtih $7,154, and
Team Peace was third with
$3,758.
Also participating from
Bartow was Tom
Thornburg of WWBF
Radio.


Tom Thornburg of WWBF Radio had his own ringing
style during the Kettle Kickoff.


Children love to put money in the famous red kettle.
Spencer Willey gives his contribution. Spencer, 3, is the
son of Jason and Devy Willey.


Salvation Army Facing 30 Percent


Increase In Need for Assistance


People who give know the feeling
well .. . help someone in need and
you usually get as much or more out
of the experience than those they
helped.
The Salvation Army of Western
Polk County depends on such feel-
ings. There is record number of fam-
ilies seeking Christ-mas assistance
this year. At least 2,100 families have
applied for assistance which is a 30
percent increase over last year.
"We are grateful to our communi-
ty for their continued support, we
couldn't do the work without them,
but we have an increased need this
year," Captain Ed Lee, Lakeland


Corps officer said. "We've seen a high
demand all year long for rent and
electric assistance, so I'm not sur-
prised by the greater number of
requests for Christmas assistance."
More than ever, families are look-
ing to The Salvation Army for a help-
ing hand. Donations help provide
services all year long and, especially
at this time of year, toys for under-
privileged children and food for
needy families.
There is urgency in the air accord-
ing to Captain Amy Lee. "This year,
more than ever, we are assisting a
record number of children."
As director of the Toy Shop, she


expressed a need for board games,
toy cars and trucks, balls and dolls
for little girls.
"We want to make this season a
brighter one for the entire family,"
Captain Amy said. Your donation of
toys can be dropped off at 1027 N.
Kathleen Rd. on the corner of
Second Street and Omuhundro
Street in Lakeland, Monday through
Friday 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For more information about ways
to donate to The Salvation Army, call
853-2214, 'ext. 222, or to volunteer
time, call 853-2214, ext. 230.

approach; voters must
accept or reject the entire
package:
* The present home-
stead exemption of
$25,000 on homes occu-
pied by the owners would
be retained, and a second
$25,000 exemption would
be allowed on valuations
exceeding $50,000.
The second exemption
would apply to city and
county commission taxes,
but not to school taxes.
The effective date would
be retroactive to Jan. 1,
2008.
Creating the second
$25,000 exemption is pro-
jected to save the typical
Polk County homeowner
about $400.
*A new exemption of
$25,000 on tangible per-
sonal property would be
allowed for homeowners
and businesses. The pri-
mary impact for home-
owners would be for peo-
ple who live in mobile
homes that are located in
mobile home parks, and
not on the owners' own
property.
These homes pay for a
mobile home decal
instead of a regular prop-
erty tax, but pay a tangible
personal property tax for
any improvements
attached to their
dwellings. The tax costs
more to collect than it
brings in, Ms. Faux said.
The $25,000 exemption
would virtually eliminate
the tax on mobile homes.
A $5 increase in mobile
home decals would bring
in three times as much


money, she said.
* Portability, the provi-
sion that faces a court
challenge, would allow
homeowners who pur-
chase new homes to keep
their "Save Our Homes"
tax shelter, which since
1995 has limited annual
increases in valuation to 3
percent.
Purchasers of new
homes that cost more than
their existing homes
would keep their full "Save
Our Homes" exemption;
persons buying less
expensive homes - typi-
cally the elderly - would
keep a percentage of their
exemption.
* Annual increases in
property assessments
would be capped at 10 per-
cent beginning Jan. 1.
2009, one year later than
the applicable date of the
other changes.
The tax reform package
would reduce revenues to
the Polk County
Commission by $17.8 mil-
lion, Ms. Faux said. The
impact on the City of
Bartow would be $190,206.
Those are preliminary
projections, and the
impacts could be greater,
she said.
Faced with reduced rev-
enues from ad valorem
property taxes, the speak-
er, said, city and county
commissions could:
* Cut services.
* Lay off employees.
* Create new fees for
governmental services.
* Create special taxes
for law enforcement, roads
and transportation, and
other local government


Transit terminal "-'"'--


expenses. These would be
similar to Polk County's
special taxes to support
libraries and recreation.
Three other proposed
property tax reform
amendments are being
proposed by organizations
circulating petitions seek-
ing to put them on the bal-
lot, Ms. Faux said.
"Beware of these," she
urged.
In a question and
answer session, Ms. Faux
said she opposed the now
defunct "super exemption"
proposal, but hasn't made
up her mind how she will
vote on the new amend-
ment, assuming it gets on
the ballot.
She noted that no mem-
ber of the Polk County leg-
islative delegation had
asked her opinion on the
best .way to approach
property tax reform.
The state property
appraisers association
previously has proposed
legislation that would roll
assessments back to the
2003 level; would reduce
valuations to 65 or 70 per-
cent of the likely selling
price instead of the pres-
ent level of 85 percent; and
would require that proper-
ty be assessed based on its
present use, not on its
"highest and best use."
Rolling back assess-
ments to the 2003 level
"would get rid of the two
years that the market went
crazy" with soaring prop-
erty prices, she said.
She said of that legisla-
tion:
"I guarantee you it's
coming back."

Ah, 'tis the season of
eggnog, honey hams, lus-
cious cakes, and a thou-
sand other gastronomical
temptations. But while the
holiday season brings lots
of yummy things, there's
no reason it also has to
bring the stress of holiday
weight gain.
If you're worried about
adding unwanted pounds
over the holidays, don't
add extra stress by decid-
ing you have to avoid every
holiday taste temptation.
This is a season meant to
be enjoyed. Avoiding all
your favorite traditional
foods, or feeling guilty
about overindulging a bit,
won't add up to happy hol-
idays, and may actually do
more damage to your
waistline.
Instead, make rational
choices for a healthier hol-
iday season. Accept that
this is a season of higher
stress - of increased
activities and obligations,
but not of more time. It's a
common time for stress-
induced eating - eating
because you're tired or
anxious, not because
you're actually hungry.


You can fight the prob-
lem by making a conscious
effort to keep it under con-
trol. When you find your-
self reaching for a snack,
ask why you're eating. If it's
because you're feeling
overwhelmed or anxious,
find other ways to relieve
the stress. Maybe taking a
walk, calling a friend, read-
ing a book or other relax-
ing and stress-reducing
activity.
It also helps to accept
that this is a season to
think moderation, not
deprivation. If you set too
rigid a rule for yourself,
you'll end up feeling
deprived, more stressed,
and more likely to binge
on food or drink later.
Instead, satisfy your crav-
ings by enjoying a variety
of small portions of holi-
day foods, without going
back for seconds and
thirds. Don't skip favorite
treats, but do be conscious
of portion sizes and
overeating. And no, this
isn't the season to increase
stress by starting a diet!
You also want to limit
holiday drinking. Alcohol
may seem a way to relax,

but it's actually a depres-
sant, packed with calories,
and will only make you
more likely to overeat even
when you're not hungry.
Lastly, stay physically
active. Even moderate
amounts of exercise will
leave you feeling better,
both physically and men-
tally, and help burn off
extra holiday calories.
Exercise also relieves
stress, which again is help-
ful if you're an emotional
eater.
This year, enjoy the hol-
iday season, but pay atten-
tion to what you're eating
and drinking and you just
may find that reversing
holiday weight gain does-
n't have to be your number
one NewYear's resolution.

The public is encour-
aged to help cut the ribbon
and be part of the opening
of the new Winter Haven
Transit Terminal.
The event, scheduled
for Dec. 6 at 10 a.m. at
Fifth Street and Avenue E
NW in Winter Haven, will
be interactive as all in
attendance will be able to
cut ribbon and officially
open the facility at the
same time as the federal,
state and local dignitaries.
The BYOS (Bring Your
Own Scissors) ribbon cut-
ting follows the theme
from the facility's ground-
breaking ceremony last
year where nearly 200 peo-
ple turned out with shov-
els to start construction of
the project.
"Including everyone in
attendance in the interac-
tive ribbon cutting sym-
bolizes the impact the


community has in making
a difference in our county,"
said Paul Simmons, direc-
tor of Polk County Transit
Services.
The $3.1 million project
is being federally funded
through the efforts of
Congressman Adam
Putnam with the Federal
Transit Administration.
Since the system began
in 1999, riders have been
without a terminal to wait
for the buses or transfer.
The new facility has 12
bus bays, rest room facili-
ties, lobby, ticket and pass
counter and sheltered
waiting areas for each
route.
"The new terminal will
bring many opportunities
for WHAT to provide better
services while it creates an
atmosphere of comfort for
the riders of our system,"
Simmons said.

Group Seeks

100 Minority

Mentors By

MLK Day

Polk Public Schools
Diversity Council has
established a goal of
recruiting 100 new minori-
ty mentors by Jan. 21,
national Martin Luther
King Jr. Day.
The group is looking for
adults of all backgrounds
to be mentors to school-
children. Minority profes-
sionals are especially
sought for this program.
Mentors help by provid-
ing a caring role model to
encourage and challenge
students. Mentors are
trained as to their roles,
responsibilities and activi-
ties to pursue with stu-
dents.
The expectation is that
mentors will spend one
hour per week with stu-
dents for a period .of one
year.
The Diversity Council is
composed of a cross-sec-
tion of community mem-
bers, church leaders and
public school employees
who provide input to the
school district about equi-
ty, inclusion and cultural
diversity.
For further information
on how to become a men-
tor or the minority mentor
recruitment initiative, call
Otis Anthony, senior direc-
tor of Polk Public Schools

ment, at 519-3670.

The Historical Museum
is sponsoring a Christmas
Home Tour on Dec. 15
from 5 to 8 p.m. and tickets
are $5 for all four sites.
These are pioneer
homes built in the late
1800s and early 1900s and
are beautifully well pre-
served by their owners.
Jim and Joy Myers at 113
Northeast First Street own
the first home. It was origi-
nally the Asa Lewis home,
and was later owned by
Ralph Durrance.
The second home is at
27 North Oak Ave. and is
owned by Alberta Bobbett
Sparks, who is the grand-
daughter of original owner
Albert Bobbett.
The third home is said


to be the oldest home in
Fort Meade, which was
built in 1886 by W. L.
Stephens family, located at
711 Northeast First Street.
and is owned today by
Beverly Barnett Crockett.
The fourth place to visit
is the Christ Church
Episcopal on the corner of
East Broadway and North
Cleveland Avenue. This
church was put on the
National Register , of
Historic Places on May 6,
1978.
It was founded in 1886
and the chapel was built in
1889. It is very unique in
architecture with spiritual
warmth.
All the museum volun-
teers have tickets to sell for
the home tour or you can
call and leave a message
on the museum phone,
285-7474. Also, tickets will


be sold at the door of each
tour site.
Last Tuesday was a fun
workday at the museum.
Members of the 1964
Fort Meade High, School
class came to help deco-
rate the museum for the
Christmas holidays.
Those class members
who came were Loraine
Harrell from St.
Petersburg, Mary Ann
DeLoach from Lakeland,
Roy Lunn from Bartow,
Judy Marchman and
Donna Adams from Fort
Meade. The regular volun-
teer were Janet Hancock,
Mavis Carmichael, Peggy
Langston, Nancy
Kitchings, and Marian
Clyatt.
It is just beautiful and as
always, the admission is
free.


Good Shepherd Plans Lights Of Love


Good Shepherd
Hospice, one of the
nation's largest not-for-
profit hospice organiza-
tions, will hold its first
Lights of Love tree-lighting
ceremony on Dec. 6 at 6
p.m. at George C. Forsythe
Hospice House, 105
Arneson Avenue in


Auburndale.
For a $25 donation, peo-
ple can purchase a tree
light in memory of a loved
one. These lights will deco-
rate a cedar tree and will
shine throughout the holi-
day season as a symbol of
the light loved ones have
brought into the lives of


their family and friends.
The organization plans
to make this an annual
holiday event. The cere-
mony is free and open to
the public; however, reser-
vations are required. Call
551-4827 for more infor-
mation or to RSVP


Geneva Knights Finish First

Six-Man Football Season, 3-6


From the Fort Meade

Historical Museum


touchdowns are six points, and.it gener-
ates the same competition as 11-man
football.
The differences between six-man and
11-man football tend to create high-scor-
ing games. The field is only 80 yards long
instead of 100 yards. Every player on
offense, including linemen, is an eligible
receiver, and a first down is 15 yards
instead of 10.
FCAPPSS is a popular league for many
smaller, independent schools, because
they may not otherwise be able to assem-
ble a team.
For more information on FCAPPS, visit
the website at www.fcapps.com.


The second annual
Charity Truckers 200 pre-
entry date of Dec. 1 has
been extended until
Saturday, Dec. 8.
The pre-entry price is
$125 before Dec. 8.
Afterward and at the gate,
it will be $175.
"I wanted to give the
guys a little more time to
get the entry in - some
are still trying to fix trucks
and motors or gather
money to be able to race,"
said Rick Bristol, promoter
of the event. "We also ask
all the other divisions to
please get their entry


Democrat & Leader Advertising Pays Big Dividends


forms in as soon as possi-
ble as well."
The Charity Truckers
200 will be held Dec. 14-
15.

Geneva Classical Academy has fin-
ished its first year with a six-man football
team through the Florida Association of
Private and Parochial Schools (FCAAPS).
The Knights finished its inaugural sea-
son with a 3-6 record. The football pro-
gram was open to home-schooled stu-
dents.
FCAPPS brought six-man football to
central Florida in 2006. The league was
comrpised of only six teams that season,
but in 2007 the league nearly doubled,
growing to 11 teams, including Geneva
and Haven Christian School. in Winter
Haven.
Six-man has some similarities with 11-
man football: it is full-tackle football,
