Putnam To Give Up GOP Leadership Post


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Congressman Adam
Putnam announced in an
election night letter to his
Republican colleagues in
the U.S. House of
Representatives that he
will not seek another term
as conference chairman
of the GOP, his party's
third highest leadership
post in the House.
He said that the highly
partisan nature of his
position makes it difficult
for him to work with
Democrats in Congress.
Explaining his deci-
sion, Putnam said:
"It is very hard to win
bipartisan support for
your legislation when a
big part of your job is to
go on TV and throw hand
grenades at the other
party. I very much want to
be able to work toward
finding solutions and
making a positive differ-


ence."
Reacting to press spec-
ulation that he wanted to
position himself to run
for Florida Commissioner
of Agriculture, Governor,
or the United States
Senate in coming years,
Putnam said:
"The people of the 12th
District just re-hired me
to represent them for
another term. I am
extremely grateful for this
opportunity, and I intend
to focus on doing this job.
"Any speculation about
what I might do in the
future is wildly prema-
ture."
In a letter sent via e-
mail to other
Congressional
Republicans shortly
before midnight Tuesday,
Putnam said:
"I have enjoyed every
minute as Conference
Chairman, but I believe it
is time to step off the
leadership ladder and


return my focus to craft-
ing public policy solu-
tions for America's gener-
ational challenges the
very reason I ran for
Congress in the first
place.
"With the issues before
us today come bipartisan
opportunities and parti-
san differences. My cur-
rent role obligates me to
the latter and too often
excludes me from the for-
mer.
"I want to fight the bat-
tles worth fighting and
lock arms to strengthen
our nation whenever pos-
sible.
"In the coming
Congress, I look forward
to focusing on the policy
solutions critical to the
state of Florida and the
important work we face
on the Financial Services
Committee to hold Wall
Street accountable and
put our economy back on
the right track.


"I have come to this
decision reluctantly. I am
immensely proud of the
work we have done as a
Conference. Together
Republicans, stood by our
Armed Forces, refused to
yield to demands for their
surrender and delivered
the resources they need to
succeed in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
"We stopped last year's
reckless Democrat spend-
ing spree and prevented
massive tax hikes on mid-
dle-class families.
"We ensured that our
intelligence officials have
the tools they need to stay
one step ahead of foreign
terrorists.
"We successfully made
the case for an 'all-of-the-
above' energy policy to
lower gas prices, develop
the next generation of
energy sources and lessen
.our dependence on for-
eign oil. These are conser-
vative achievements


worth defending."
It is wrong to charac-
terize the decision as'a
resignation, he said. His
decision was not to seek
another term in the lead-
ership position, "a small
but important distinc-
tion."
Putnam called the job
"a little like being the pan-
cake breakfast chairman
for the Kiwanis Club; it's
an important job, and
somebody needs to do it.
But you don't necessarily
want to do it every year."
Putnam said he came
to this decision in August
when he had the chance
to spend some uninter-
rupted time with his fam-
ily. He said was confident
of winning reelection as
conference chairman if
he pursued it, but felt it
was not the path he
should pursue.
"I didn't want this deci-
sion to become a distrac-
tion in any other cam-


Adam Putnam


paigns so I kept the deci-
sion secret until the elec-
tions were over," he said.
The majority party. in
the House controls all the
committee chairman-
ships, so as a member of
the minority party,
Putnam is not eligible for
such a post.

Fire Destroys Mobile Home


Fire destroyed a dou-

Thursday afternoon at
6880 Snell Road in
Alturas, displacing a fam-

Bartow firefighters
assisted Polk County Fire
Dept. in putting out the
fire, which started about
2:30 p.m. After getting the


fire under control, fire-
fighters stayed on scene
until 5 p.m.
The home is owned by
Thomas Fossett.
No one was injured,
but the family is staying

spokesman Phil Attinger
said.

requirement for a 60 per-

about 3-to-1.

Good Humor Wagons Violate

Bartow's City Code, Attorney Says


Good Humor wagons
- those noisy but popu-
lar trucks from which ice
cream and other frozen
treats are sold are not
legal in Bartow.
For the moment, at
least, the city doesn't plan
to do anything about it.
City Atty. Sean Parker
said he got a call from
Acting Police Chief David
Brooks after Brooks
received an inquiry from
an ice cream truck opera-
tor who wanted to get a


license to operate in
Bartow.
After researching the
city code, Parker conclud-
ed that Good Humor wag-
ons are just about the
only business that is not
authorized in the city.
"Technically speaking,
they are prohibited, in
Bartow," Parker said.
Ice cream trucks would
be legal if they pulled into
customers' driveways, or
operated from parking
lots, but selling goods in

Hey Polk County Can Count


A headline in Thursday's issue
of The Tampa Tribune said it
well: "County Can't Count."
The Hillsborough County
Supervisor of Elections office
has finally taken the pressure off
Broward County when it comes
to fumbling through an election.
The heart of Flori-duh moved
from the lower East Coast to
Tampa Bay in this week's general
election.
A day-and-a-half after the
world knew who America had
elected to be its next President,
Hillsborough County voters
weren't even close to finding out
who had won several local
offices ... including Supervisor
of Elections.
The finger of blame spun
around like a wind sock in a hur-
ricane: the equipment didn't
work; there were too many races
on the ballot; too many people
voted on election day. (That last
one is a real winner.)
It appears that failure to begin
counting early ballots early was
onre major problem; that's not


exactly rocket science.
It also appears that the equip-
ment wasn't adequately tested
before election day; another no-
brainer.
But that is a problem for Hills-
borough County voters to deal
with.
In Polk County, the vote-
counting process went smooth-
ly, as is usually the case.
In fact, the prediction of Lori
Edwards, Polk's. Supervisor of
Elections, that the final vote
count would be not finished
until around 11 p.m. was pes-
simistic; at 10 p.m., only three of
the county's 166 precincts were
still out, and the final one was in
by 10:30.
Journalists and other political
junkies who spend election
nights on the second floor of the
elections office building know
that there are always a handful
of precincts that just can't seem
to move as fast as the other 160
or so.
But that is a minor problem
compared to the chaos in Hills-


borough County this year, and in
Broward a few years ago.
Just as there is plenty of blame
to be shared when a system
melts down, there is plenty of
credit to be shared when it
works.
The buck stops at the desk of
the Supervisor of Elections, who
in turn must rely on the skill of
his or her staff. Lori Edwards and
her staff passed with flying col-
ors.
Mark-sense technology, in
which marks on a piece of paper
are read by high speed scanners,
has been around for at least 50
years, and has become increas-
ingly sophisticated.
That sophistication is a won-
derful thing when it works, and a
disaster when it doesn't.
Equipment and software that
works, and that is adequately
supported by vendors, is essen-
tial.
And key to ensuring that every
vote counts or has a high like-
lihood of counting rests with a
system that uses paper ballots.


It is one thing for a restaurant
to compute customers' bills with
touch screen technology, and
something else entirely to trust
America's premier exercise in
democracy to a technology that
leaves no paper trail and cannot
be audited after the fact.
Polk used paper ballots when
the county was a rib carved out
of Hillsborough. County's east
side in 1861 long, cumber-
some ballots in which presiden-
tial electors were listed by name.
Today's modern ballots that
can be scanned electronically in
less than a second still maintain
a pencil-on-paper record of vot-
ing.
Sometimes "old and reliable"
beats "new and improved," and
when other counties went with
glitzy touch screen voting con-
soles no longer permitted in
Florida Polk County wisely
kept a system which, even when
its technology fails initially, can
still provide an accurate vote
count.

JUST MY OPINION / By BOB BOBBER

Political DejaVu


It was deja vu all over
again as they say.
The election last Tues-
day gave me a flashback to
my experience in 1980.
I had left the newspa-
per, industry to take a
swing at politics. My fami-
ly had always been active
and I loved the high ener-
gy. ...
Iwas working for an ad
agency in Orlando and my
childhood. friend, John
Davis,, was running for
county:: commissioner,
and together we were
going to change the world.
We were Democrats.
The Democratic party was
dominant in Central Flori-
da. We were on the win-
ning team. Nothing was
going to stop us.
In addition to running
nmy friend's campaign, I
got involved with the over-
all Democratic Party.
Interestingly, one of the
real young lions was a
state senator from the Bre-'
vard County area by the
name of Bill Nelson.
As time went by, I built
a good relationship with
all the leaders of the
.Democratic Party in Cen-
tral, Florida. My power
base was expanding.
Yep, things were going
to be great.
Range County was


building a new conven-
tion center and I was
promised that if the
Democrats controlled the
county commission, I was
going to be named the
marketing director, a six-
figure job with incredible
influence and an exciting
future.
All we had to do was
win two of the three seats
that were up that year to
keep control and it was big
time city.
The Democrats had
controlled the commis-
sion since the Civil War.
History was on my side.
We worked hard, long
hours and raised a quarter
of a million dollars, which
was unheard of for that
time. Today it's a $2 mil-
lion race.
We won the initial pri-
mary but did not get 50
percent of the vote. We
had to go to a second pri-
mary and we won that. We
were on our way.
We had the Orlando
Sentinel endorsement and
a huge war chest that had
been created by the local
builders association.
We had no idea that the
tsunami known as Ronald
Reagan was about to
crush the Southern
Democrats who had lined
up behind an incredibly


weak president, Jimmy
Carter. Is this starting to
sound vaguely familiar?
Well as you may have
guessed by now, we lost
our races for the county
commission, and the
Democrats as a whole lost
control of the county
commission among other
things.
I was unemployed
overnight and my view of
politics was tainted for
years.
It all flashed back Tues-
day as I thought of all
those Republicans who
were defeated on the local
and congressional level by
the tsunami called Barack
Obama.
The Republicans had
attached their stars to
John McCain's wagon, and
right or wrong, John
McCain was connected to
an unpopular President
George W. Bush.
It's probably unfair to
lay the entire Republican
debacle simply on George
Bush, but he sure helped.
Somewhere out there
was a young Bob Bobber
who thought Republicans
couldn't lose.
He or she is wondering
what happened and what
to do now.
What goes around
comes around.

It is a safe bet that the
Reagan Era is now histo-
ry.
Ronald Reagan, who
entered America's living
rooms touting 20 Mule
Team Borax on black-
and-white TV, became
one of America's most
respected presidents, the
man who brought about
an end to the Cold War
and the fall of the Berlin
Wall.
Reagan may not have
been the keenest intel-
lect ever to occupy the
White House, but he sur-
rounded himself with
competent leaders,
pointed them in a direc-
tion, and enabled them
to achieve greatness for
his administration.
That is leadership.
Conservative Democ-
rats, particularly in the
South, began flocking to
the Republican Party, and
the Solid Democratic
South became but anoth-
er chapter in the shifting
-sands of political history.
In Polk County, where
40 years ago any voter
who registered as any-
thing other than a Demo-
crat basically disenfran-
chised himself in local
elections because only
Democrats sought office,
the Republican Party
became the dominant
political force.
Although registered


Democrats still outnum-
ber registered Republi-
cans in Polk County -
131,000 to 120,000 the
GOP has held a virtual
monopoly in local poli-
tics from the Polk County
Commission to the 12th
Congressional District.
That dominance held
up in this year's election,
but barely.
In the two county
commission races on the
general election ballot,
Republicanri won both
with less than 50 percent
of the vote; third party
candidates siphoned off a
few thousand votes.
Popular Commission-
er Sam Johnson led his
Democratic opponent by
slightly more than 3 per-
cent for District 3, and Ed
Smith outpolled his
Democratic opponent by
only 69-hundredths of 1
percent, narrowly avoid-
ing a recount.
John McCain captured
slightly less than 52.5 per-
cent of the vote in a coun-
ty which has gone solidly
Republican in most
recent presidential races.
Even Congressman
Adam Putnam, Polk
County's favorite son,
saw his usually lopsided
dominance slip to a 3-to-
2 margin over his Democ-
ratic challenger.
It hardly takes a politi-
cal junkie who has been


covering elections in Polk
County for 44 years to
observe that the low
esteem in which Presi-
dent Bush is held
throughout the nation
influenced elections from
Pennsylvania Avenue to
Main Street, USA.
And while the respon-
sibility for the unpopular
wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan properly
rests in the Oval Office,
the real culprit, once
again: "It's the economy,
Stupid."
McCain's choice of
Sarah Palin as his run-
ning mate was good for
headlines, but not for
votes. Even the conserva-
tive faithful probably
found it hard to find com-
fort in Governor Palin
assuming the presidency
from the 74-year-old
McCain.
Joe Biden hardly
inspires enthusiasm, but
it is a little easier to imag-
ine him being able to take
on the mantle of leader-
ship if it were thrust upon
him.
Should a Democratic
president and a Democ-
ratic Congress not be able
to fix the economy in the
next two years, the 2010
Congressional election
could be a different story.
But the Reagan magic,
like the man who created
it, is gone.


OUR READERS SAY

Luncheon Honors Caregivers


WINTER HAVEN On
Oct. 29, President Bush
issued a proclamation
designating November
2008 as National Family
Caregivers Month.
In his proclamation,
President Bush said,
"During National Family
Caregivers Month, we
recognize and celebrate
the many individuals
throughout our country
who work each day to
ensure a better quality of
life for their family mem-
bers. Through their self-
less action, these care-
givers provide their loved
ones support and comfort
as they age, combat ill-
ness, or suffer from dis-
ability."
The Polk County Com-
mission issued a similar
proclamation on Nov. 5.
According to the
National Family Care-
givers Assn., more than 50
million people in the
United States provide


home care for a chroni-
cally ill, disabled, or aged
family member or friend
each year.
These family caregivers
provide some 80 percent
of all long-term home
care services, which is
conservatively valued at
$350 billion a year an
average of' $7,000 per
family caregiver per year.
Applying that value to
the estimated 25,000 fam-
ily caregivers in Polk
County means that family
caregivers save the tax-
payers of Polk County
$175 million each year.
To help the Polk Coun-
ty community celebrate
National Family Care-
givers Month 2008, Polk
County Family Care-
givers, Inc. is hosting the
ninth annual Family
Caregiver Appreciation
Luncheon on Monday,
Nov. 17, from 11 a.m. to 2
p.m. at the Bartow Civic
Center. This annual event
I


provides an opportunity
to show appreciation for
the unselfish and unpaid
personal care services
provided by family care-
givers.
The luncheon, free to
all family caregivers and
their loved ones, is made
possible through the gen-
erous support of many
local agencies, organiza-
tions, and individuals.
Others wishing to
attend are requested to
make a $15 donation. To
make a reservation, call
603-9110 or e-mail pcf-
caregivers@hotmail.com.

City Adopts Identity Theft


Safeguards for Customers


A lengthy policy geared
at preventing and detect-
ing identify theft from
customers of Bartow's
utilities system was
adopted by the Bartow
City Commission.
Adoption of such a
program is mandated by
a 2003 federal law, with a
Nov. 1 deadline for imple-
mentation.
City Mgr. George A.
Long said the program is
designed to protect both
customers and city
employees, and deals pri-
marily with customer ser-
vice and billing.
It identifies "red flags"
that could indicate fraud-
ulent behavior or
attempts to obtain per-
sonal information such as
Social Security numbers,
and sets forth corrective


measures to be taken
when they are discovered.
Among "red flags" are
things such as documents
that appear.to have been
altered or forged, use of
photo IDs that do not
appear to be the cus-


tomer, and inconsisten-
cies in information pro-
vided.
Long said implementa-
tion of the policies
already has begun with
the providing of private
areas in which customers


can fill out forms contain-
ing sensitive information.
City Atty. Sean Parker
said the policy creates "a
brick wall" to stop crimi-
nals from stealing identity
information from the city.

A herd of cows will
soon be packing their
suitcases, as Polk County
commissioners voted
Wednesday to evict the
bovine.
The county obtained
the 120-acre property,
west of the Polk Parkway
near Auburndale, in 2003,
after concerns arose that
if the property were sold,
development would raise
environmental issues for
the former landfill site.


lucky to have it as a place
to call home."
The piece was hand-
crafted by Mike Horst of
Perfection Restoration
from plywood and, then,
he painted the house by
hand.
Overall, the project
took Horst seven days to
complete, with eight to 10
hours spent on the house
each day.
If you are interested in
knowing more about the
piece, it can be seen on
display in Cattery A near
the entrance of the
Adoption Center, near the
newly constructed cat-a-
tats.


A request to remove
the cows voluntarily was
refused by herd owner
James Calandra, County
Attorney Michael Craig
said.
The decision to remove
the cows now is due to a
requirement by the state
asking Polk County to
improve the site with top-
soil.
"We don't think it's safe
to have the cows on site
during the work," Brooks
Stayer, solid waste direc-
tor for the county, said.
Calandra has no lease


Rumors swirled around Bartow that Barack Obama
was holding a rally in Bartow the week before the pres-
idential election. But it turned out that the bus carried
members of the International Union of Painters and
Allied Trades supporting the Democratic ticket.
Bartow Commissioner Leo Longworth spoke to those


for the site, but Craig
explained that since the
cows are on the site, cer-
tain rights are given, and
thus the court order is the
next step.
Stayer said a future use
for the area would be a
bike or radio-controlled
airplane park, but plans
would have to be
approved by the state. He
said the area does have
good public access and

ty commissioners from a site near Auburndale. (Photo collage by Peggy Kehoe)

First Methodist of Bartow Returns

To Roots with Homeland Heritage


First United Methodist
Church of Bartow will
host their semi-annual
gathering at Homeland
Heritage Park on Sunday,
Nov. 9.
In the 1880s,
Homeland was the site of
the Peace Creek
Campground, and the
area became known as
the "Mother of
Methodism" in South
Florida.
For the past eight
years, First UMC has
returned to its roots and
had a day of celebration,
worship, food, and fellow-
ship at Homeland.
Activities begin at 10
a.m. with a music cele-
bration from the outdoor
pavilion, featuring blue-
grass gospel group "Never
Fade" while the audience
relaxes under the giant
shady oaks.
At 11 a.m., the congre-
gation will gather in the


historic Homeland
Methodist Sanctuary.
Music and especially
singing take on special
character with the reso-
nant acoustics of the
wooden floors, walls, and
ceiling of the 100-year-
old building.
There will be special
music presented by the
adult and children's
choirs and singing of
favorites from the
Cokesbury Hymnal
accompanied on piano by
Carol Keen in her distinc-
tive old-time gospel style.
Following the worship
service will be dinner on
the grounds. The congre-
gation will feast on barbe-
cue chicken cooked on
site by Bruce Lee and the
Holy Smokers crew, and
country corn on the cobb
and other special dishes
prepared by the cooks of
First UMC will be avail-
able.


Everyone should bring
a salad, vegetable, or
dessert to share.
Beverages and tableware
will be provided. Picnic
tables and bleacher seat-
ing are available, but folks
may want to bring lawn
chairs and card tables for
a comfortable dinner in
the shade and cool of the
oak trees.
After-dinner activities
include recreational
activities for the young-
at-heart, more music by
the featured musicians,
and open mike perfor-
mances. The event is
open to the public.
There will be no ser-
vices in the First UMC
sanctuary in Bartow on
Sunday morning. The
6:33 p.m. praise service
will be held in the sanctu-
ary.
For more information,
call the church at 533-
0904.

Gospel's Ball Brothers Come To

Fort Meade First United Methodist


The Ball Brothers will
be in concert at the First
United Methodist Church
at Fort Meade on
Saturday, Nov. 15, at 7
p.m.
The Ball Brothers,
Joshua, Daniel, Andrew,
and Stephen, are four
real-life brothers that
travel full-time singing
gospel music with a
unique blend of harmony.
"We like to have fun,"
Daniel said. "No one told
us siblings couldn't be
best friends." The bond
these brothers have is an
integral part of their
unique musical blend.
The Ball Brothers
showcase a confidence
and grasp of harmony.
Central Illinois, where
the guys grew up, is more
known for flat farm land
than singers. Yet at an
early age, The Bail1
Brothers began practicing
the harmonies that Would
catapult them into the
spotlight.

When they began
singing with their family,
these young men entered
into a strong tradition of
family harmony groups in
gospel music. However,
The Ball Brothers bring
their own youthful energy
to these traditions, creat-
ing a style that encom-
passes all that is great
about the family groups
of the past with their own
unique sensibilities.
With their mix of new
and old, The Ball Brothers
have potential to appeal
to a broad audience
In 2006 the Ball
Brothers were introduced
to thousands of Gospel
music fans at sold-out
events all across America
on the Ernie HasSe and
Signature Sound summer
Tour. They performed
numbers off their debut
self-titled CD.
In addition to the great
success of the summer
tour, in 2007 the Ball
Brothers made a special


guest appearance on
EHSS-certified gold sell-
ing DVD "Get Away
Jordan," plus guest
appearances on the
extremely popular
Gaither Homecoming
Video Series.
Despite the rapid
climb towards success,
the Ball Brothers remain
focused on their goal of
reaching people through
music.
"When we started off a
couple years ago, we had
dreams and goals and it's
amazing to see how God
has helped us meet
them," Andrew said.
"Right now we're focusing
on the future."
The future for the Ball
Brothers includes a
National Christmas Tour
and a full Christmas pro-
ject.

Of Banks, Business and the Economic Bust


Associated Press chronicles area hardships -


By TODD LEWAN
AP National Writer

LAKE WALES (AP) -
The gentleman put on his
finest white shirt, dark,
pressed trousers, his
Sunday shoes. Only it was
a Thursday, and Jim
Christensen needed not a
pastor, but a banker. At
age 61, he was about to
lose his restaurant.
So he made his way to
Citizens Bank & Trust,
where he and a large
share of this city's 13,052
residents keep their sav-
ings, and asked to see the
bank's president. Had he
made an appointment?
No, ma'am. Could he
come back that after-
noon? No, ma'am.
Christensen took a
chair and tried to sit still.
Five years that's how
long he'd operated the
Crazy Fish on Henry
Street, serving fresh pom-
pano, salmon and yahoo,
keeping the price of his
gumbo soup affordable,
keeping the place homey
with simple decorating
touches.
All summer, though,
his regulars had become
sometimes, and 90 per-
cent of those who could
still afford to eat out paid
by credit card which
was OK, as long as the
Wachovia Corp., which
processed his merchant's
credit, advanced the
Crazy Fish money each
day for operating expens-
es.
Then, Wachovia col-
lapsed. Credit that arrived
each day now took three.
For a family enterprise
that lived hand to mouth,
that carried a mortgage
but no emergency cash,
the announcement was
the equivalent of a pink
slip.
"Sir?" A secretary was
tapping his shoulder.
"You can go on in, now."
There are tricks to
negotiating a loan with
favorable terms. You
smile, shake hands firmly.
You establish eye contact.
You talk about the upbeat
side of your business.
Christensen did none of
these things.
"This is the worst pos-
sible time I could be com-
ing to you for money," he
blurted to the man now
studying him from
behind a big, oak desk,
"because I desperately
need it."


How much? Four thou-
sand dollars.
When? Immediately.
How much time would
he need to repay the loan?
Sixty well, 90 days.
The banker, Greg
Littleton, said nothing at
first. He'd lunched often
at the Crazy Fish. He
knew how hard this man,
together with his wife,
Jeanie, and their daugh-
ters and grandchildren,
worked the floor.
But he also knew
restaurants were among
the first casualties in hard
times; there were few suc-
cessful eateries in town.
How would the Crazy Fish
pay back the loan, in the
maw of the worst finan-
cial crisis since the Great
Depression?
Littleton stood up.
"Jim," he said softly,
"I'll sort this out." It would
be OK.
Littleton is something
of a celebrity in Polk
County not so much
because, by age 41, he's
already served as head of
nearly every economic
development body in
these parts, but from
observations such as
these:
"In Greg Littleton's
world, there are no little
people." That's James
Brow, 51, who has operat-
ed Long's Dry Cleaners
downtown for 30 years.
"I trust he'll tell me
what he really thinks and
believes not what he
thinks will make him a
profit." So says Matt
Fanuef, 45, whose insures
mobile homes for retirees.
"Greg's ... not motivat-
ed by his brain, but by his
heart." That's Kathy
Manry, 62, a city commis-
sioner.
To the citrus growers
and cattle ranchers who
form the economic spine
of rural Polk County,
these traits are a code to
live by, an antidote to the
vanity and greed that
combined for such cata-
strophic effect on Wall
Street.
To some, Littleton is a
therapist, to others a
financial sage. To every-
one, he is a church dea-
con who declines to wear
his religion on his sleeve,
a patron of the Lake Wales
Arts Center, a NASCAR
fan, the centerpiece of a
newspaper ad that says:
"Remember when you
could meet your bank

president for a cup of cof-
fee? Good news! You still
can!"
Littleton is above aver-
age in height, trim as a
coin, with a broad,
schoolboyish face. His
glance is level, prosaic.
His hair, brown yet gray-
ing at the edges, is per-
fectly parted, suggesting a
taste for exactitude.
Banks, in his opinion,
need to act conservatively
in good times, and extend
themselves in moments
of crisis "to be a force of
stability and calmness for
our communities and our
customers."
To that end, he recently
set a goal for his staff offi-
cers: To pay a visit to every
customer on a list of 600
clients by year's end. (He
didn't exclude himself
from the task.)
It's not exactly how big
banks normally evaluate
risk that is, relying on
mathematical models or
delegating much of the
responsibility for evaluat-
ing borrowers to other
players, such as credit-
rating agencies.
"There's an old saying:
'The best fertilizer in any
grove is the owner's foot-
steps,' Littleton
explains, chuckling. "We
don't wait for the street to
come to us. We go to Main
Street to stay on top of
what's going on."
When he is about town,
which is nearly every
afternoon, he takes note
of the troubling clues of
recession: the empty
parking spaces outside
the shops on East Stuart
Avenue, the closed ice
cream parlor on Park
Avenue, the vacant dis-
play windows within the
historic district's shop-
ping Arcade.


Lately, the queries from
townies quiver with anxi-
ety:
How's the Dow today?
Should I drain my
401(K)?
Will I be able to get a
college loan?
Littleton tells them that
the bank is on solid foot-
ing, in no need of federal
bailout money. As to
when this country's econ-
omy will hit bottom,
what's his expert opinion?
"Your guess is as good as
mine."
On a recent Sunday
evening, before delivering
a sermon on the need for
faith in troubled financial
times, Bob Bauer, the
Church of Christ minister,
approached Littleton
with this question:
"How's our money
doing?"
The two men have sim-
ilar retirement accounts

Ia P.O. Box 1189 430 E. Main Street Bartow,


at Citizens Bank. Littleton
shrugged. "Not any worse
off than anybody else's."
With that, the preacher
took the podium. His ser-
mon acknowledged that
many parishioners were
worried, understandably
so, about their retirement
money.
However, he went on,
"Let me say this: Until the
day I see Greg go com-
pletely gray-headed, or
see Greg's wife take a
part-time job at
McDonald's, I truly feel
that we're all going to be
OK."
Cashwise, Citizens
Bank is in good shape. In
the last six weeks,
deposits are up by $12
million, about 7 percent.
In August, the bank made
more loans than ever -
$12.8 million; in one week
in October, it loaned $2
million.


Just four loans are in
foreclosure now, Littleton
said. "We do whatever we
can not to resort to that."
One recent weekday,
/ Littleton stopped in to the
Crazy Fish for his usual:
Mahi Mahi, blackened,
with mango sauce.
Christensen quickly
came over. Just a hand-
shake wouldn't suffice;
Christiansen offered a
hug. "Words can't express
my gratitude," he said, his
eyes glistening, "for all
that you did for us in this
tough, tough time."
Littleton, visibly
embarrassed, grinned. He
was, after all, just a small-
town banker doing his
part.

Airport Authority To Permit

Tenant RMI-F to Sub-Lease


By BRETT LOWE
StaffWriter

Rotonics Manufacturing, Inc., (RMI-
F) a plastic container company, asked
the Bartow Airport Authority for per-
mission to sublease the building it uses
at Bartow Municipal Airport.
RMI-F decided to sell their Florida
) operation to Dura-Cast, another plastic
manufacturer. However, the building
RMI-F leased from the airport will be
their contractual responsibility until
September.
Dura-Cast has its own facilities, and
will not use the building at the airport.
As part of the deal with RMI-F, however,
Dura-Cast plans to sub-lease the build-
he ing so that it will have access to remove
n- equipment and provide the necessary
repairs before the lease with the Bartow
Airport .ends.
Dura-Cast plans to auction most of
the extra equipment and absorb most of
the RMI-F employees.
nd Airport Attorney Sean Parker said
nrd that the sub-lease agreement contained
nd many details, and that he will look
through the contract to make sure there
are no conflicts between the lease from
lk Bartow Airport to RMI-F and the lease
from RMI-F to Dura-Cast.

that her primary concern was making
sure that the contract made it clear
which party was responsible for repairs.
She did not want unclear language leav-
ing loopholes which could result in both
parties claiming the other was responsi-
ble, resulting in the airport having to
take over.
A.J. Jackson, Airport Authority board
chairman; said that he had no problems
with the agreement conceptually,
though he agreed with the concerns of
Parker and Barrow.
Parker said that he would keep the
board informed regarding his examina-
tion of the contract, and the board
passed the tentative approval unani-
mously, 5-0.
Also during the meeting:
Barrow said that she was investigat-
ing the Airport's status as a public entity
as it related to federally insured
accounts in light of the economic crisis.
The board voted unanimously to
renew a lease with Ray Willis and
Associates for three years with no
options at $450 per month.
The board voted unanimously to a
master joint participation agreement
with the State of Florida Department of
Transportation for multiple aviation
projects at the airport.

Weeki Wachee Newest State Park


Florida Department of
Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Florida
State Parks named Weeki
Wachee Springs as the
newest unit in the state
park system.
State Park manage-
ment of the site not only
protects the integrity of
this well-known first
magnitude spring, it also
preserves one of Florida's
oldest tourist attractions.
"We are pleased to wel-
come Weeki Wachee
Springs as the 160th state
park in Florida's award-
winning state park sys-
tem," said DEP Deputy
Secretary Bob Ballard.
"Adding WAki Wachee


Springs to the Florida
State Park system has
been a cooperative effort
between all of the parties
involved and we are truly
excited to be a part of pre-
serving this unique piece
of Florida history."
Weeki Wachee Springs,
"The Only City of Live
Mermaids," is a famous
Florida attraction located
in Hernando County. As
one of Florida's 33 first-
magnitude springs, Weeki
Wachee is a valuable nat-
ural and cultural
resource, Ballard said.
The attraction, estab-
lished in 1946, turned the
spring into an underwa-
ter mermaid show which


garnered increased atten-
tion and fame into the
1960s.
"The addition of Weeki
Wachee Springs will add a
new dimension to the
state park system" said
Florida Park Service
Director Mike Bullock.
"The historic mermaid
show and the first-magni-
tude spring are welcome
additions that will be pre-
served for generations."

Fallen Florida Soldiers Memorial

Debuts at Roar n' Soar Today


..


A memorial to 216
Floridians who gave their
lives in combat during the
wars in the Middle East
will be unveiled at noon
today at the second annu-
al Roar n' Soar at Fantasy
of Flight in Polk City.
The Military Order of
the Purple Heart (MOPH),
Chapter 795, will unveil
the traveling
Afghanistan / Iraq
Memorial Portrait Mural.
Roar n' Soar, today and
Sunday, is a celebration of
the world's fastest air, sea
and land racing vehicles,
and showcases Fantasy of
Flight's world-renowned
collection of 40 rare and
vintage aircraft, including
many planes used in
combat during World War
II.
"Given Fantasy of
Flight's long-standing
commitment to preserv-
ing the proud legacy of
America's military air-
craft, it seems only fitting
that we unveil the memo-
rial at this time and at this
place, to friends, family
and patrons who support
both their mission and
ours," said Bill Everett,
Region IV and depart-
ment chief of staff of the
Florida chapter, MOPH.
To unveil the tabletop-


style mural, the MOPH
Color Guard will conduct
a brief ceremony at noon
today, including the
Pledge of Allegiance as
well as an air-to-land sky-
diving tribute using the
largest American flag
parachute in the United
States.
Enhancing the patriot-
ic theme of the event, a
team of daring, extreme
paratroopers will leap
from a vintage plane to
unfurl Old Glory in mid-
air. After the initial
unveiling, the MOPH will
transport the wall to every
town in Florida where a
fallen hero's family
resides. The wall bears
photographs etched on
tile of the 233 Floridians
who were killed in action
in Iraq and Afghanistan as
of 2007. Those killed since
will be added at the end of
the year.

Ave., Maitland, is
Kristallnacht, the "Night
of Broken Glass." Seventy
years ago this Nov. 9, the
Germans stormed Jewish
ghettos and communities
in the first overt act of
their reign of terror. In a
single night, 2,000 syna-
gogues were burned, 91
Jews were killed outright,
and as many as 30,000
were arrested and deport-
ed to camps. Thousands
of businesses in cities and
towns throughout
Germany were ransacked
and destroyed.
Kristallnacht als%
marked a turning point in
relations between Nazi
Germany and the rest of
the world. The brutality of


the program and the Nazi
government's deliberate
policy of encouraging the
violence laid bare the
widespread anti-
Semitism entrenched in
Germany, and turned
world opinion sharply
against the Nazi regime.

Tree Law

Action

Delayed

Action on Bartow's
proposed,tree protection
ordinance has been post-
poned again pending fur-
ther review by the city
staff and a city study
committee.
Three public hearings
already had been post-
poned, and the zoning
board voted Monday to
postpone the hearing for'
a fourth time, and
instructed Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers not to put
it back on the agenda
until further recommen-
dations from the staff and
the committee.
Although intended pri-
marily to protect Bartow's
"grandfather oaks," the
ordinance would have
far-reaching affects that
have prompted concerns
from the public.

Hunting is an illness. A man so afflicted spends
hours, days, even weekends away from his family.
He shares his distress with other afflicted men.
He hurts even as he hunts. He seeks relief
from this sickness. He seeks understanding
that he has no choice but to HUNT.

Challenger Baseball


- Where Everyone's a Winner!


By VICKY L. LOVE
Staff Writer

Playing ball is not
always about competi-
tion.
Just ask Nigel White,
the 11-yearrold son of
Bobbi Jo Sargent of
Bartow.
This time it's about
what baseball was always
meant to be about fun!
And it's about building
confidence. This time
everyone's a winner.
Every player bats and
every player plays the
field. There's no disputes,
no yelling except for
joy. And it's where every-
one works together for
the love of the players,
more than for the love of
the game.
On Saturday mornings
at Barranco and Barnes
Field you'll see the biggest
smiles on the faces of the
players as well as their
"buddies" and the audi-
ence in the stands.
It's total teamwork here
as one buddy may push
the team player around
the field while another
buddy may retrieve a ball
that has gotten by the
player. It's where every-
one present roots for each
player as they come up to
bat or play the field.
If there's any tears shed
here you can believe
they're tears of joy as the
parents of these players
see their child accomplish
things they never thought
possible things they
only imagined.
The parents' hearts
swell with pride and it's
pure tears of joy that glis-
ten and dampen their
cheeks as they watch their
child experience what
they once thought impos-
sible. And there's tears on
the flushed cheeks of the
players too tears of
accomplishment!
White moved to Florida
two years ago from
Michigan with his family.
A student at Polk Life and
Learning Center in
Bartow last year, he has
Asperger's and obsessive


compulsive disorder
(OCD) and is now home-
schooled.
Sargent said that she
first learned of Challenger
Baseball from another
mother at Polk Life and
Learning.
"I think it's pretty
good," White said enthu-
siastically. "I like hitting
and I like throwing the
ball to the baseman when
the opposing team is run-
ning to first base."
Although he likes to swim
and fish, he says baseball
is his favorite sport.
"He looks forward to
the Saturday games," said
his mother. "I think that
the volunteers, the col-
lege kids, are patient and
really good with the
Challenger players.
Everyone pulls together
and everyone has fun."
Until nine years ago
there was nowhere in this
area that disabled kids
could play baseball. At
games they were often
found sitting on the side-
lines watching their sib-
lings, rooting them on but
deep inside wishing they
too could play. That was
until Janeen Montgomery
found out about
Challenger Baseball.
Montgomery, who was
involved in softball at the
time, had attended a
Little League Clinic at
Southern Region
Headquarters in St.
Petersburg when she first
heard about Challenger
Baseball. The more she
listened the more excited
she got.
Returning from the
clinic she gathered all the
information she could
and talked it over with the
then league president, Joe
Ciferni. It was four years
in the making, but
Montgomery, herself a
mother of a multi-handi-
capped child who died
before experiencing
Challenger Baseball, was
determined.
Although it was too late
for her daughter, she ral-
lied for the other children
who dreamed of playing


ball but were unable to
because of their limita-
tions or disabilities.
Dan Madrill was the
baseball coach at Lake
Wales High School back
then and he and his wife,
who too have a child with
multiple disabilities,
worked heart and soul
along Montgomery and
others to see the
Challenger Division in
Lake Wales to fruition.
There was much work.
A committee was formed.
They canvassed the
schools and made pre-
sentations to local service
clubs and other groups.
Montgomery never fal-
tered for one moment.
She was determined to
make this dream a reality.
And in 1999 a group of 16
children played their first
game.
The Challenger
Division is a baseball pro-
gram for children and
youth who have physical,
developmental and intel-
lectual disabilities (5 to 18
years of age). The pro-
gram provides these spe-
cial kids with an opportu-
nity to enjoy the full ben-
efits of Little League par-
ticipation at a level struc-
tured to their abilities.
More importantly, the
program allows them to
be part of a team and
develop their social skills
and build their self-
esteem. Many times play-
ers from the regular pro-
gram or parents of this
group of special children
act as "buddies" to assist
the Challengers run the
bases, catch, throw, push
wheelchairs, etc.
Although originally the
buddies for the Lake
Wales division were com-
posed of members of the
board of directors of the
league.
This year Jeff Sikes, the
baseball coach at Warner
Southern College, has
arranged for the
Challenger players to
have WSC baseball play-
ers assist them. They
pitch to the older children
and sometimes catch.


Because it is softer, a T-
ball is used instead of a
regular baseball. And
players can either hit
from a T-ball stand or a
live ball thrown from a
pitcher.
When watching them
play it's hard to tell who
benefits most from the
assistance the players
or the buddies as the
enthusiasm and spirit the
Challengers bring to the
game is infectious.
The most fundamental
goal of the Challenger
Division is to give every-
one a chance to play,
regardless of limitations.
To realize that goal,
Challenger has two basic
rules: every player bats
each inning, and every
player plays the field.
Here strikes and outs
don't count. Everybody
scores each inning and
everybody wins. Each
player gets the opportuni-
ty to play defense, bat and
score each inning. Being
on the field is just one of
the benefits resulting
from playing Challenger
Baseball. The players
learn socialization skills
and develop friendships
while their feelings of suc-
cess and confidence grow.
Parents and siblings
enjoy camaraderie with
other parents and siblings
as they cheer on their spe-
cial player and his or her
teammates.
Challenger Baseball
participants learn not
only the fundamentals of
baseball, but also experi-
ence pulling together as a
team as well as being
cheered on by a crowd
and encouraged by their
peers. All players are
named all-stars, and all
receive trophies engraved
with their names on them
at the end-of-the-season.
Challenger players play
on the same 'fields, use
the same equipment, and
wear the same full uni-
forms as non-disabled
teams. There is no entry
fee and each player is
given a team hat and shirt
as local businesses and

during Saturday Baseball at Legions field in Lake
Wales. According to Coach Farre, team players get to
play whatever position they choose. (Photo provid-

organizations offer their
support through sponsor-
ships. Pants are provided
by the parents.
There are four teams
that play a game of three
innings at Barranco and
Barnes field in Lake Wales
at 9 a.m. Saturday morn-
ings, now through Nov. 22
and then again in the
spring. The two teams
added this year are
younger children, stu-
dents from Our Children's
Ac demy, a school for
special needs children in
Lake Wales.
Players can either hit
from a batting tee or off a
pitcher.
Judi Corriveau,
Challenger player agent,
has been involved with
the Challenger Division
since its 1999 inception.
"It's very rewarding to
see the kids play," she
said. "We've seen changes
in them from the begin-
ning of the season to the
end. Some of them have
been with us for years.
We've watched them
grown and become more
confident."
"There's one little girl,


Audrey Taylor, who
wouldn't run when she
first started. A buddy car-
ried her around the bases
on his shoulders and now
she runs them all by her-
self," added Corriveau.
Audrey's grandmother,
Lucy Taylor helps coach
the First Baptist team.
Players come from
local communities
including Lake Wales,
Frostproof, Fort Meade
and Eagle Lake. Two
Challenger Divisions cur-
rently exist in Lakeland
with Haines City begin-
ning their own division in
the spring.
In addition to
CorriVeau and
Montgomery, who is
Challenger vice president,
Jimmy Maggard serves as
the division's president.
"This is a really a very
worthwhile program,"
said Corriveau. "Some of
the kids have siblings who
play regular ball and now
they can play."

Racer Chases Championship at Auburndale Speedway on Nov. 15


Since the age of 13,
Chase Fitzgerald of Lutz
has been winning go-kart
races at tracks throughout
Florida. After starting his
career at Dirt Devils
Speedway, a small dirt
oval near Land O' Lakes in
2001,' Chase's parents
quickly realized that he
was a gifted racer. They
began to take Chase
around the state to larger
events, winning many
trophies, cash purses and
prizes along the way. In
2006, Chase captured
track championships at
both Dirt Devils
Speedway, and Speedway
Park in Fruitland Park.
And, in 2008, Chase cap-


tured his first champi-
onship with the premier
dirt racing series for
karters, the Florida
Karting Association.
This year, Chase also
made the decision to
enter the Florida Triple
Crown Series for champ
karts. It consists of four
races, scheduled at four
different paved tracks
throughout the state.
Champ karts often race
only inches apart, with
speeds approaching 70 to
75 miles per hour in the
draft.
Drivers range in age
from 15 to 72 years old.
The series is sanctioned
by the Desoto Champ


Kart Series. Each race is
25 laps in length, and car-
ries a cash purse of more
than $1,000. In addition,
the top finishers also
receive trophies and
sponsor contingency
awards.
In his first Triple Crown
race at Charlotte County
Motorsports in Punta
Gorda on Feb. 9, Chase
completed a last-lap pass
for the win. In the second
Triple Crown race at
Desoto Super Speedway
in Bradenton on May 17,
Chase finished fifth.
In the third Triple
Crown race at Citrus
County Speedway in
Inverness on July 26,


Chase scored another
last-lap pass for the win.
The competition was stiff,
with an average starting
field of 30 champ karts in
each race.
On Saturday night,
Nov. 15, Chase will take a
commanding points lead
into the final Triple Crown
race at the quarter-mile
paved oval of Auburndale
Speedway in Auburndale.
Following the race, a
large Eagle trophy and
champion's jacket will be
awarded to the 2008
Florida Triple Crown
Series Champion. In
addition, the champion
will receive a variety of
awards and prizes.


Chase, who is now 20,
owns and operates his
own business, Cutting
Edge Kart Shop in Lutz.
His shop offers a variety
of services to the racing
community, including tire
preparation, chassis set-
up and clutch work. In
addition, Chase offers
personalized consulta-
tion to other drivers, to
help racers maximize
their performance.
When asked for his
future aspirations, Chase
was realistic "I would
love to drive a dirt sprint
car or late model some


day. But, I know the costs
of those divisions are very
high. If it doesn't happen,
I'd like to win as many
karting championships
that I can."
Races start at 7 p.m.
General admission is
$12, with seniors paying
$10, kids 5 to 12 paying
$5, and children under 5
getting in free.
Auburndale Speedway
is located at 5640 State
Road 542 West.

Florida Southern
College Healthy Campus
Coalition students
Braden Bradford, Ketia
Harris, Seth Paul and
Welty Spears, along with
Cathy Robinson Pickett,
Healthy Campus coordi-
nator, were chosen to pre-
sent at the 2008 National
General Assembly of
Bacchus Gamma in
Columbus, Ohio, on Nov.
13.
The students, all
sophomores, will present
a "Best Practice Program"
featuring their TAP
(tobacco awareness pro-
gram) outreach to middle
school students.
The program was cho-
sen because of the stu-
dents' creative and inter-
active approach to reach-
ing the younger student
population.
Bradford has created a
MySpace page geared to
middle schools with
tobacco information as
well as a Facebook page
with tobacco facts and
forums for college stu-


campaign.
Florida Southern
College has won this
competition at the dis-
trict level twice in 10
years, excelling over
schools such as the
Universities of South
Florida, Central Florida,
West Florida, and North
Florida, Florida Gulf
Coast University, and the
University of Miami.
Students attending the
conference included:
Kelly E. Brennan, a
senior and daughter of
Stuart and Doris Brennan
of Wrentham, Mass.
Joseph M. Citro, a
sophomore and son of
Joseph and Ana Maria
Citro of Palm Harbor.

dents and peer educators.
Bradford is a business
major from Plant City;
Harris is an art major
from Miami; Paul, from
Milwaukee, and Spears,
from Orlando, are major-
ing in nursing.
Last year the HCC
team reached more than
700 students in the Polk
County area. This year the
peer educators have set a
goal of teaching 1000 stu-
dents.
They also have been
invited to Sumter County
schools where they will
be presenting in
November.
According to Pickett,
all these efforts have been
made possible due to a
tobacco awareness grant
from the Central Florida
Area Health Education
Center. The students
received a $10,000 grant
last year, and this year
FSC received two sepa-
rate $12,000 grants, one
for HCC and one for the
nursing program.

Day at Bartow Elementary Academy Thursday. Putnam and BEA Principal Carol
Borders took time for a photograph with the Congressional decree and flag pre-
sented to BEA in Washington, D.C., at the National Blue Ribbon Award ceremony

Ribbon Schools award honors schools for helping students achieve at very high
levels and for making significant progress in closing the achievement gap. -

28 NOTICE OF PERMIT

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMEN-
TAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT
The Department of Environmental
Protection (Department) gives notice
of its intent to issue an Environmental
Resource Permit (Permit #0131819-
012) to Mosaic Fertilizertilizer, LLC, (Mosa-
ic), Post Office Box 2000, Mulberry,
Florida 33860-1100. The project is to
conduct phosphate mining operations
on approximately 92.6 acres of
uplands, wetlands, and other surface
waters historically disturbed by mining
activities. The project site, known as
the S-Parcel, is 163 acres and is locat-
ed within the Hookers Prairie Mine.
Activities to be conducted include the
mining of 44.3 acres, disturbance of
48.3 acres and the reclamation of 92.6
acres of uplands, wetlands and other
surface waters in the S-Parcel follow-
ing the completion of mining opera-
tions. The S-Parcel is a non-manda-
tory area where mining had been con-
ducted prior to July 1, 1975 and was
never identified in a conceptual recla-
mation plan.. The Department has
determined that the S-Parcel requires
an ERP permit for the proposed min-
ing activities pursuant to Chapter 373,
F.S. Once the S-Parcel is disturbed
again by mining operations, it will be
subject to reclamation requirements
under Chapter 378, F.S., and Rule
62C-16, F.A.C. The mitigation shall
include approximately 10.08 acres of
freshwater marsh off-site in Area-A of
Hookers Prairie Mine and 1.1 acres of
mixed forest wetland within the S Par-
cel. An additional 5.1 acres of herba-
ceous wetlands will be created as part
of the reclamation of the S-Parcel pur-
suant to reclamation Rule 62C-16,
F.A.C. The majority of the reclaimed
uplands, 31.4 acres, will be returned to
agricultural use (pasture), 5.0 acres
will be planted to shrub and brushland,
15.5 acres will be re forested and the
man-made lake will increase to 99.2
acres post-reclamation.
An additional enhancement project
identified as the Whidden Creek
Watershed Enhancement Project will
be conducted consecutively within the
Ft. Meade Mine, Polk County, Florida.
Currently areas in the Ft. Meade Mine,
flow to Berkeley Pond which is con-
nected to the Berkeley Holding Pond
through an under flow pipe and storm
water is re-circulated through the
industrial wastewater system. An old
spillway in the SE corner will be
removed and replaced with a culvert to
maintain access but provide for a
more stable structure. The underflow
pipe between Berkeley Pond and the
Berkeley Holding Pond will be aban-
doned by grouting with neat cement to
block the connection and the Berkeley
Holding Pond will be re-contoured to
the elevation of the floodplain. A
grassed swale will be built to connect
the Berkeley Pond to Lake Denise
which currently overflows through a
grassed swale to Whidden Creek.
There is an existing splitter pipe that
directs flow to both Whidden Creek
and Lake Denise. The enhancement
project will remove the splitter pipe so
that all creek flow remains within
Whidden Creek and the creek will be
stabilized and reclaimed.
On the south side of Whidden Creek,
the Ft. Meade plant will be torn down
and the site will be reclaimed to pas-
ture. A diversion berm that exists in
the floodplain will be removed so the
overland watershed from the plant site
will resume flow through the floodplain
to Whidden Creek.
This project will result in the re-con-
nection of approximately 1,564 acres
of watershed to Whidden Creek, a trib-
utary of the Peace River. The
enhancement project for the Whidden
Creek watershed will be completed
within two (2) years from issuance of
this permit unless another date is
approved in writing by the Depart-
ment.
The S-Parcel is located 1.5 miles
south of State Road 630 and 1 ? miles
west of District Line Road, in Polk
County. The area identified for mining
activities lieslies in Section 4, Township
32 South, Range 24 East, in the Whid-
den Creek watershed, a tributary to
the Peace River, Class III11 Waters.
The mitigation site known as Area-A is
located northeast of the S-Parcel in
Sections 33 and 34, Township 31
South, Range 24 East, in the Whidden
Creek watershed, a tributary to the
Peace River, Class III Waters.
The Whidden Creek Watershed
Enhancement project is located north
of the Ft. Meade Mine plant site, in
Polk County, Florida. The area lies in
Sections 1, 2,11,12 and 13, Township
32 South, Range 24 East, and Sec-
tions 6, 7 and 18, Township 32 South,
Range 25 East, in the Whidden Creek

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMEN-
TAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO GRANT A
VARIANCE
The Department of Environmental
Protection (Department) gives notice
of its intent to grant a variance
(0131819-013-EV-VE) to Mosaic Fer-
tilizer, LLC, (Mosaic), Post Office Box
2000, Mulberry, Florida 33860-1100,
under subsection 373.414(17) and
paragraph 403.201 (1)(a), Florida
Statutes, (F.S.), from the provisions of
rule 62 302.530(31), Florida Adminis-
trative Code, (F.A.C.), which provides
minimum standards for dissolved oxy-
gen levels in surface waters. This
variance will apply to dissolved oxy-
gen levels in the hypolimnion (the
deepest layer) in the man-made lake
proposed in Environmental Resource
Permit application No. 0131819-012. .
On December 21, 2007, Mosaic Fer-
tilizer, L.L.C. applied for an Environ-
mental Resource Permit to mine
approximately 44.3 acres at the Hook-
ers Prairie Mine within a 163.7 acre
project area historically disturbed by
mining operations. The proposed pro-
ject will result in a man-made lake
approximately 99.2 acres. The man-
made lake will not exceed 25 feet 1
foot below normal water elevation
(NWL). On December 21, 2007,
Mosaic Fertilizer, L.L.C. submitted a
petition for a variance, under subsec-
tion 373.414(17) and paragraph
403.201(1)(a), F.S., from the provi-
sions of rule 62-302.530 (31), F.A.C,
which provides minimum standards for
dissolved oxygen levels in surface
waters. The variance will be perma-
nent.
The dissolved oxygen levels in the
hypolimnion of the man-made lake are
expected to drop below the mandatory
minimum of 5.0 mg/L at times, Stratifi-
cation ard the associated reduction of
dissolved oxygen in the hypolimnion
are natural phenomena in deep-water
bodies, especially during warmer parts
of the year. This condition is well doc-
umented in the limnological literature
and recognized in paragraph
373.414(6) (a), F.S., which states,
,"[t]he Legislature recognizes that
some mining activities that may occur
in waters of the state must leave a
deep pit as part of the reclamation.
Such deep pits may not meet the
established water quality standard for
dissolved oxygen below the surficial
layers. Where such mining activities
otherwise meet the permitting criteria
contained in this section, such activi-
ties may be eligible for a variance from
the established water quality standard
for dissolved oxygen within the lower
layers of the reclaimed pit." -
The low dissolved oxygen levels in
the hypolimnion of the man-made
lake, are not expected to result in any
on-site or off-site impacts. Oxygen
levels in the upper layers of the man-
made lake are expected to meet the
requirements of rule 62-302.530,
F.A.C., and be adequate to support
healthy fish populations. Existing
lakes on lands previously mined for
phosphate support healthy popula-
tions of fish. Several man-made lakes
are currently being managed by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission to provide the public
recreational fishing opportunities.
Once reclamation is completed, this
man-made lake will be connected to
reclaimed and/or preserved wetlands
and streams. Water exiting the man-
made lake is expected to meet the
requirements for dissolved oxygen
and other water quality criteria of rule
62-302.530, F.A.C. The water will exit
from the upper surface of the man-
made lake and will flow through shal-


38 OTHER NOTICES

low conveyances that will provide fur-
ther aeration.
There is no practicable means known
or available to achieve the required
dissolved oxygen levels within the
man-made lake. Therefore, the
Department intends to grant a vari-
ance pursuant to paragraph
403.201(1)(a), F.S., for dissolved oxy-
gen within the hypolimnion in the pro-
posed man-made lake.
Under this intent to grant, this vari-
ance is hereby granted subject to the
applicant's compliance with any
requirement in this intent to publish
notice of this intent in a newspaper of
general circulation and to provide
proof of such publication in accor-
dance with section 50.051, F.S. This
action is final and effective on the date
filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a sufficient petition for an
administrative hearing is timely filed
under sections 120.569 and 120.57,
F.S., as provided below. If a sufficient
petition for an administrative hearing is
timely filed, this intent to grant auto-
matically becomes only proposed
agency action on the application, sub-
ject to the result of the administrative
review process. Therefore, on the fil-
ing of a timely and sufficient petition,
this action will not be final and effec-
tive until further order of the Depart-
ment. When proof of publication is
provided, if required by this intent, and
if a sufficient petition is not timely filed,
the variance will be grantecj as a min-
isterial action. Because an adminis-
trative hearing may result in the rever-
sal or substantial modification of this
action, the applicant is advised not to
commence construction or other activ-
ities until the deadlines noted below
for filing a petition for an administrative
hearing or request for an extension of
time have expired and until the vari-
ance has been executed and deliv-
ered. Mediation is not available.
A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Department's
action may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The
petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4), FA.C., a
person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's action
may also request an extension of time
to file a petition for an administrative
hearing. The Department may, for
good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed with
the Office O of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, before the
applicable deadline. A timely request
for extension of time shall toll the run-
ning of the time period for filing a peti-
tion until the request is acted upon. If
a request is filed late, the Department
may still grant it upon a motion by the
requesting party showing that the fail-
ure to file a request for an extension of
time before the before the deadline was the result
of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an
administrative hearing is filed, other
persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by the outcome of the
administrative process have the right
to petition to intervene in the proceed-
ing. Intervention will be permitted only
at the discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in compli-
ance with rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
In accordance with subsection
373.414(17), F.S. and section
403.201, F.S., petitions for an adminis-
trative hearing by the applicant must
be filed within 14 days of receipt of this
written notice. Petitions filed by any
persons other than the applicant, and
other than those entitled to written


38 OTHER NOTICES

notice under subsection 120.60(3),
F.S., must be filed within 14 days of
publication of the notice or within 14
days of receipt of the written notice,
whichever occurs first. Under subsec-
tion 120.60(3), F.S., however, any per-
son who has asked the Department for
'notice of agency action may file a peti-
tion within 14 days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the date of publi-
cation.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the
petition to the applicant at theaddress
indicated above at the time of filing.
The failure of any person to file a peti-
tion for an administrative hearing with-
in the appropriate time period shall
constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the Department's
action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information: (a) the name and
address of each agency affected 'and
each agency's file or identification
number, if known; (b) the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner; the name, address, and
telephone number of the petitioner's
representative, if any, which shall be
the address for service purposes dur-
ing the course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how the petitioner's
substantial interests are or will be
affected by the agency determination;
(c) a statement of when and how the
petitioner received notice of the
agency decision; (d) a statement of all
disputed issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition must so
indicate; (e) a concise statement of the
ultimate facts alleged, including the
specific facts that the petitioner con-
tends warrant reversal or modification
of the agency's proposed action; (f) a
statement of the specific rules or
statutes that the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action; and (g) a
statement of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely the action'
that the petitioner wishes the agency
to take with respect to the agency's
proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the
material facts on which the Depart-
ment's action is based shall state that
no such facts are in dispute and other-
wise shall contain the same informa-
tion as set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Under para-
graphs 120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a
petition for administrative hearing
must be dismissed by the agency if
the petition does not substantially
comply with the above requirements
or is untimely filed.
This intent to grant a variance consti-
tutes an order of the Department.
Subject to the provisions of paragraph
120.68(7)(a), F.S., which may require
a remand for an administrative hear-
ing, the applicant has the right to seek
judicial review of the order under sec-
tion 120.68, FS., by the filing of a
notice of appeal under Rule 9.110 of
the Florida Rules of Appellate Proce-
dure with the Clerk of the Department
in the Office of General Counsel, 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Sta-
tion 35, Tallahassee, Florida, 32399
3000; and by filing a copy of the notice
of appeal accompanied by the applic-
able filing fees with the appropriate
district court of appeal. The notice of
appeal must be filed within 30 days
from the date when the order is filed
with the ClerIk of the Department.
