Electric Utilities Director Resigns;



Residency, Management Style Cited


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Samy Faried, the city of
Bartow director of electric
utilities, submitted his resig-
nation on Thursday, one day
after being placed on admin-
istrative leave with pay by
City Mgr. George A. Long.
Faried chose to resign
effective July 10 instead of
taking part in a formal hear-
ing in front of Long on Friday
morning to discuss the issues
that led to his being placed'
on leave.
Long said two issues led to
his action:
* The degree to which
Faried was complying with a
requirement that he live in


Polk County. Faried had an
apartment in Winter Haven,
but his wife continued to live
in their home in Alva, near
Fort Myers.
* "Management style" in
dealing with his employees.
Long declined to be more
specific, beyond saying that
he had held two lengthy
meetings with Faried to dis-
cuss the way he dealt with
employees.
Eschol. Radford, No. 2
employee in the electric
department, "is at the helm
right now," Long said.
Long said he hopes to
appoint an interim director,
but may have to spend more
time himself overseeing the
electric department.


"For the next several days,
he (Faried) will make himself
available as I direct to help
. make the transition," Long
said.
"We have a number of
issues that need to be dealt
with; our power contract, for
instance. We have some regu-
latory issues we are dealing
with."
Faried had submitted a
request for vacation time
prior to being placed on
leave, and that vacation time
will end on July 10, the date of
his resignation.
He will remain in a con-
sultant capacity until that
vacation begins, Long said.
"I am working right now to
get them some interim assis-


tance," Long said. "If not, I'll
probably be spending'some
time in that office myself."
Faried is the first depart-
ment head to leave the city's
employment since voters
approved an amendment to
the city charter that allows
city commissioners to urge
the manager to hire or fire'
employees.'
That did riot occur in this
case, Long said, though com-
missioners had made him
aware of management style
issues.
"There are comments that
come to their attention, and
the commissioners have tried
to work very well with me and
make them known "to me.
They leave it on my desk to


deal with.
"There were comments
that came to me about some
of the conflict situations. We
(Long and Faried) had talked
at length over those conflict
situations two times.
"There were some
instances where I took excep-
tion to the working relation-
ship between the director
and his employees. We dealt
with a variety of these conflict
issues over several months.
"During these two discus-
sions, there were certain
things that came to my atten-
tion that I felt were causing
perception issues where it
wasn't necessary for that to

Bartow Girl Racing To Win World Championship


By DAWN WADE
Features Editor

Some kids complain
of boredom over the
summer, but Dakota
Seger will be having a
barrel of fun.
Dakota, 11, has quali-
fied for the National
Barrel Horse
Association's youth
World Championships
in Jackson, Miss., in July.
At the age of 3,
Dakota, who will start
sixth grade at Bartow
Middle next year, got on
her first horse, and it
was love at first sight.
"Ever since she was a
baby, all she talked
about was horses," her
mom, Rosemarie Seger,
said.
Dakota took lessons
in English equitation
and dressage, but was
soon looking with long-
ing at her barrel racing
friends.
For those uninitiated,
barrel racing involves
running 'a horse in a
cloverleaf pattern
between three set bar-
rels, arranged in a trian-
gle. Racers compete
against a clock, which
can be electrically or
manually operated.
"I guess she got a lit-
tle bored with going
slow," Mrs. Seger said.


Now Dakota and her
horse, the adorably-
named Doodlebug,, are
moving much faster.
"When we first start-
ed, I wasn't really sure
about going that fast,"
she said. "Now I love it."
With, training three
times a week, and
events all over, Dakota
said she has found her
calling, and a horse who
loves racing.
"They have to have
the heart for it," she
said. "Some horses are
barrel horses and some
are cow horses.
Doodlebug is a barrel
horse."
The family has
recently purchased two
other young horses, and
one is training for rac.-
ing now, but Mrs. Seger
said she is unsure if the
other horse will want to
race.
"You just never
know," she said. "You
can have a fast horse,
but if it doesn't have the
heart, it will never race."
Dakota and her fami-
ly travel around the
state to NBHA events
and other barrel races,
and after joining the
NBHA in July, she had
qualified for the World
Championship in six
months.
"We've been to the


Sarasota area, Punta
Gorda, Daytona, all
over," Mrs. Seger said.
"We've been to big and
small arenas, and have
had some good races."
In DeLand, Dakota
took the $180 purse.
"I got real lucky," she.
said, modestly."
Now with a trip to
Jackson looming, the
family is seeking spon-
sorships and holding
fund raising events to
help Dakota and
Doodlebug win the title.
The trip is expected
to last as long as 10
days, and may require
as much as $4,000.
While in Jackson,
Dakota will not only
have the opportunity to
compete, but also will
be able to participate in.
social and fun events
with other barrel racing
children from around
the world.
The family has held
raffles, and tonight will
hold a barbecue on
their Alturas ranch.
The barbecue will
feature a live band, raf-
fles and lots of food.
Tickets are $25 per per-
son or $40 per couple.
For information on
sponsorships or the
barbecue, call Mrs.
Seger at 581-5790.


Dakota Seger and Doodlebug will. compete
Championships this July. - (Staff photo)

be occurring.
"I raised those issues
with the director and
pointed out things I
thought he could do to
avoid those circum-
stances."
One factor in his deci-
sion to place Faried on,
Long said, "was the
means and manner of
dealing with and direct-
ing employees, and
instructing employees as
well.
"There are appropri-
ate methods for trying to
cause your employees to
learn."
After placing Faried
on leave, Long asked
that a police officer take
Faried to his ,Winter


Haven apartment.
"Because he had a city
vehicle assigned and
because he lives in
Winter Haven and he
was not going to be per-
mitted to take the city
vehicle, I asked one of
our police officers to see
that he got back to his
home," Long said.
He emphasized that
"there is no hint of a
criminal issue here," and
the police officer's sole
involvement was to give
Faried a ride.
Long said that placing
Faried on administrative
leave was not a suspen-
sion.
A suspension is a dis-
ciplinary action, Long
said.
A formal hearing con-


ducted by the city man-
ager on Friday morning
would have determined
"if disciplinary action
was merited." Faried
chose to resign instead
of facing that hearing.

Faried was hired last
September at a salary of
$80,000.
He is a licensed pro-
fessional engineer, and
has three degrees in
electrical engineering
and business adminis-
tration.
He has more than 25
years of experience in
electric, water, and
wastewater utilities,
most recently as utilities
director for the city of
Lake Worth, a position
he took in 2007.

summer, more than one
million older Americans

own drug costs while
still paying premiums.
AARP is launching a
new online resource to
help older Americans
avoid this coverage gap.

Bartow Auction Company

Takes Several Awards


National Auctioneers Association
(NAA) announced that United
Country - Oglesby & Company
Auctioneers was named winner of the
"Auction of the Year" award in the 2009
NAA Marketing Competition.
The Bartow company also won sev-
eral awards in the photography divi-
sion.
"In today's economic climate it can
be very difficult for motivated sellers
to find legitimate buyers, and equally
difficult for those buyers to ascertain
appropriate value for a given parcel of
real estate," said Oglesby, broker and
lead auctioneer for Oglesby .&
Company. "Through the auction
method of marketing, we sort out the
genuinely interested buyers and work
to ensure that each buyer party is
well-informed of about the aspects of
each individual parcel or tract.
"Our staff members also strive to be
sure that buyers are educated about
and comfortable with the bidding
process in general."
The NAA's annual marketing com-
petition allows its members located in
the United States, Canada and across
the world to highlight their innovative
creations from the past year and vie
for top awards'for their marketing and
advertising materials.
The 2009 competition was spon-
sored by "USA Today". and included

LJ.'s Sports Bar and Grill smoking won't be limited to this outdoor area after
the bar and restaurant are separated. - (Staff photo by Dawn Wade)



L.J.'s Diner To Split Off


Bar To Allow Smoking


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

L.J.'s Sports Bar and Grill is one step
closer to becoming a smoker-friendly
establishment.
Nicholas Mallas, owner of L.J.'s,
went before the planning and zoning
commission at their Monday meeting
to request permission to separate the
"bar" and "grill," creating two separate
businesses in the same building.
The roughly 8,500-square-foot
building would house a 5,000-square-
foot bar, while the remaining 3,500
square feet would continue to be used
as a restaurant, Mallas said.
Such a change would force Mallas
to purchase a costlier liquor license
for the bar, which is required for busi-
nesses where less than 10 percent of
the profits are from food. However,
the change also will allow the bar to
permit smoking, which is prohibited
in restaurants.
The two areas will be sealed off
from each other after renovations,
Mallas said. Both businesses would
have their own entrances and bath-
rooms.
The commission approved the
request 5-0.
Also at the meeting, Anthony
Grainger, owner of the Stanford Inn,
asked the commission about the pos-
sibility of opening a tea room at the


inn. A lot of people stop in to look at
the building, he said, and several have
expressed interest in using it for meet-
ings or small social gatherings. He
said he wanted to make sure he went
through the proper channels before
doing anything, however.
Bob Wiegers, planning and com-
munity development director, said
that the current zoning would not
allow it, but that it might be possible
to change the code definition of a bed
and breakfast to encompass such a-
function.
Most of the commission was sup-
portive of such a move, but Susan
Brewer said that she opposed the
move based on prior history. She said
that previous owners had made a sim-
ilar request, but neighbors objected to
the increased traffic and the .request
was denied.
Wiegers said he did not remember
a previous request, but that he would
look through old minutes to see if he
could find anything. He also said that
the city would post notice of the pos-
sible change in the neighborhood to
give those residents proper warning,
allowing them to also join the discus-
sion.
The issue was tabled so that
Wiegers would have time to look into
the past history and the options avail-
able to allow the tea room.

tion of the year.
According to Jennifer Wood, auc-
tion coordinator for United Country -
Oglesby & Company Auctioneers,
"The sale that won NAA Auction of
the Year for us was particularly satisfy-
ing because it enabled a group of fam-
ily members to close an unpleasant
chapter in their life and move forward
with a clean slate.
"We registered well over 800 bid-
ders that day and had more than 2,000
people in attendance. The real estate
and considerable personal property
sold at values well exceeding the
expectations of the IRS and other
creditors, leaving some surplus cash
in the hands of the sellers."

Legislators Must Not Lose Touch


We recall the words of a
Bartow city commissioner
many years ago who was fond
of complaining: "When mem-
bers of the Legislature get to
Tallahassee, all of a sudden
they get smarter than the peo-
ple who elected them."
While it is unfair to paint all
legislators with the same
brush, we have found a dis-
tressing accuracy in his obser-
vation.
People elected to public
office too often lose touch with
the people - and the values -
that marked their entry into
politics. And the farther away
from the voters they get, the
easier it is to lose touch.
One of the major dangers
that the political process cre-
ates is a culture in which those
in public office do, in fact,
come into contact with more
information than they had
when they ran for office.
This can produce an attitude
of: "If you only knew what I
knew..."
To which our response is:
"Tell us what you know; then


we will."
While we want our elected
representatives to gain as
much knowledge as possible, it
is easy for them to lose sight of
the fact that most of that infor-
mation is coming from vested
interests.
The most obvious vested
interest is represented by lob-
byists, whose job is to sell the
points of view - and the eco-
nomic interests - of those
who hire them..
This is not an evil concept; it
is simply political reality.
Another vested interest is
the bureaucracy, also intent on
selling legislators on the agen-
das of its various agencies.
Again, this is not a nefarious
concept; it's just the way things
are.
There are not enough elect-
ed public servants, particularly
at the state level, who recog-
nize such influences, and dig
in their heels.
For example, we do not
recall a single candidate for the
Florida Legislature who ran on
a platform of embracing off-


shore drilling for oil.
In a state only about 100
miles wide at its widest point,
few legislators live more than
50 miles from either the Gulf of
Mexico or the Atlantic Ocean.
Given that most population
centers are on or near the
coasts, the majority live much
closer.
But in the past few months,
the oil industry has done much
to convince lawmakers that
drilling for oil within a few
miles of Florida's pristine
beaches would create an eco-
nomic windfall for the country,
-and especially for Florida.
They further assert that
there is no chance of release of
oil onto our shores.
This assertion they make
with all the fervor of the manu-
facturers of the Titanic, who
assured the world that theirs
was the unsinkable ship.
Exxon never anticipated that
the Exxon Valdez would dis-
gorge 10.8 million gallons of its
gooey cargo in 1989.
Florida's voters, we suspect,
are less willing than legislators


to believe the industry's prom-
ises of wealth and assurances
of environmental infallibility.
Voters do not have lobbyists
wearing down their resolve to
protect our state's shores.
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said
earlier this month that all roy-
alties from federal leases for
off-shore drilling must be
spent "to clean up the mess
and damages from drilling."
Florida would get royalties
only from state leases on wells
within 10 miles of the shore . . .
the ones that would pose the
greatest danger to beaches.
Some windfall.
The oil drilling issue is but
the latest issue on which, we
believe, legislators are losing
touch with their constituents
- the people who were smart
enough to put them in office.
We urge Florida's present
legislators - and the candi-
dates who hope to succeed
them some day - not to lose
touch with either the voters or
the ideas that seemed so
important to them before
Election Day.

OUR READERS SAY

Preserve DYL History


BARTOW - I read
with interest the discus-
sion of Summer youth
baseball.
Back in the 1950's
there was such a pro-
gram that was run by
the Recreation
Department with no
connections with any
affiliation.
Why does the rec
department want such
affiliation?
It seems to me that
the program could and
probably should be run
in a strictly fun, easygo-
ing nature without the
constant competition
that goes with affiliated
program.
While on the Little
League (LL) vs. Dixie
Youth League (DYL), I
wish someone would
get the. history of the
program in Bartow and
make it a permanent
record. There are not
many of the founders
still around.
I think The Democrat
will have some of the


documentation, but
interviews with the
remaining few would fill
in the gaps.
Here are just a few of
the facts I know off
hand:
LL was started in
1961. A group made up
of Tommy Walker, Bob
Haslett, Jack Fulton (all
three now deceased)
Clifford Lewis, Gene
Betts, (lives in Fort'
Myers), and John
English started the pro-
gram with four teams.
I believe the teams
were Citrus & Chemical
Bank, Chartrand's
Motel, Armour
Phosphate, and C.
Wilson Construction.
We physically built
the fields where the
tennis courts are today.
No lights for a couple of
years.
Lewis with the first
president for two or
three years, then George
Pittas was elected and
served for many, many
years. Lee Conley was


one of the first coaches
and coached longer
than any, I think.
We changed to DYL in
1966, I think it was.
There were several rea-
sons for the change.
LL tournaments then
were single elimination;
DYL were double elimi-
,nation.
LL took all local con-
cession funds,- and later
divided them between
all participating teams;
DYL let the host team
keep the funds.
LL. was very formal
where DYL was more
relaxed, and various
other reasons.
Others involved early
can give more details.
I think the program
has been a tremendous
success and everyone
involved deserves lots of
credit for giving so
much of their free time.
Now who would like
to step -up to the plate
and get the permanent
record.

,ALTURAS - Once
again, Southwest
Florida Water
Management District is
offering grant funds of
up to $5,000 per grant
under a new program
called "The Splash!"
With the serious
water resource prob-
lems facing citizens in
West Central Florida, a
thoughtful assessment
and use of our corporate
water resources is
appropriate and neces-
sary.
However, as with all
governmental entities,
once initiated,
SWFWMD has grown
exponentially in both
cost and in its attempt
to define and expand its
role and responsibili-
ties. Therefore, it is dis-
turbing but not surpris-
ing that the governing
board of SWFWMD has
arbitrarily determined


could be covered in a
three-minute feature on
the Today show.
Others wanted more,
and it's a free country
(unless you have cable).

To me, the
(mis)Adventures- of Kate
and Jon are only slightly
less interesting than
who is doing whom (you
have to use euphemisms
in a family newspaper)
in Hollywood.
Even that sometimes
makes the evening
news, or at least the.
aforesaid Today show.
I draw the line at the
cutesy names made up
for those couples enjoy-
ing their 15 minutes of
hand-holding fame.
Take Brangelina, the
made-up name of two
stars (Brad Pitt and
Angelina Jolie, I assume,
though 1 could be mis-
taken).
Every other week or
so, when the big name
couples change part-
ners, we have a new
cutesy name.
Can you imagine the
Founding Fathers coin-
ing Georgartha as the
name for the father of
our country and his
beloved Martha? ,
Or Abramarytodd, for


to award $5,000 grants
to. schools, individuals
or groups to "promote
hands-on water
resources education."
For the Southwest
Florida district,
$155,000 was appropri-
ated for 2009 with
$126,952.00 actually
awarded. This amount
does not include the
cost of administration,
communication coordi-
nators, etc.
-In other words,
SWFWMD is attempting
to expand its role and
credibility by entering
into dubious education-
al projects with dollars
derived from ad val-
orem taxes.
In a time when the
economy in Polk
County is struggling
with 10.8 percent
unemployment and pri-
vate businesses, con-
trqctors, and others are


the guy who led the
nation through the Civil
War and freed the slaves,
and Mary Todd?
Coming to modern
times, did the White
House have JacJac when
JFK and Jacqueline ruled
over Camelot in
Washington, D.C.?
We had more class
than that.
-
I do not hold all
entertainers in disdain.
I was a big fan of Ed
McMahon. He was one
of the best second
bananas in show busi-
ness; anyone who wants
to say he was the best of
all times will get no
argument from me.
For him, it was never
All About Me.
It was never about
upstaging Johnny
Carson, to whose rescue
Ed McMahon rushed
every time he laid an
egg.
It was all about the
audience, and giving
them something to
laugh at.
By all accounts, he
was every bit the gentle-
man off-stage that he
appeared to be on-stage.
He was a class act;
Hollywood needs more
entertainers like him.


carefully watching the
bottom line, SWFWMD
is finding new and cre-
ative ways to spend the
public's money.
It is time that govern-
ment bureaucracies like
SWFWMD emerge from
their ivory castles where
their "permitting prac-
tices" impose enormous
hardship upon fledgling
businesses.
They need to enter
the real world where the
average engineer or
businessman has to
make payroll every
week, pay payroll taxes,
property taxes, etc.
Perhaps we should
heed President
Washington's warning,
"Government is not rea-
son. Government is not
eloquence. It is force.
And like fire, it is a dan-
gerous servant and a
fearful master."

30 Years Ago

Bartow service sta-
tion dealers appear to
be getting their alloca-
tions of gasoline despite
the strike of independ-
ent truckers., but their
allocations aren't
enough to keep their
-stations open on their
regular schedules.
City commissioners
removed City Mgr.
Ralph Bowers from
office Friday night, then
appointed Water and
Sewer Supt. Everett
Kinloch interim city
manager by the same 3-
to-2 split which has
marked almost every
recent vote on Bowers.
They also narrowed
their list of persons to
be interviewed to five
men and indicated they
may consider Bowers an
active applicant.
Brenda West, a senior
business administration
major from Bartow, is
the new Miss Florida
A&M University for
1979-1980.
Mrs. Nancy Soos of
Bartow was named this
week as National Home
Economics Teacher of
the Year. She is a home
economics teacher at
Union Adademy Junior
High School.
C. Mack Shirley has
probably saved several
lives, not with dramatic
rescues, but his blood.
The Fort Meade police


captain has given blood
40 times at Polk General
Hospital, for a' total of
five gallons. He began in
1964, and goes to the
blood bank as often as
he is allowed.

25 Years Ago

The Democrat's
account of a seven-hour
stand-off in which a
man held four hostages
at gun point in a Bartow
convenience store last
Dec. 4 was judged the
best news story to
appear in a Florida
community newspaper
in 1983.
After 20 years of plan-
ning and less than 20
minutes of speech mak-
ing, ground was broken
on Tuesday evening for
Polk County's nine-
story $29.5 million judi-
cial complex.
Homemaking servic-
es for 94 elderly people
in Polk County will end
this week. Human
Services Dir. Marvin
Brice says the reduction
is necessary because of
cuts in funds by the
Division of Health and
Rehabilitative Services.
Two Bartow couples,
Mr. and Mrs. Sanford L.

Mrs. Hubert E Whitten,
Sr., will celebrate their
60th wedding anniver-

OUR READERS, SAY

Relay: A Community Success


FORT MEADE - Fort
Meade has not quite
6,000 residents, so the
percentage of them
serving on the Relay
executive committee
and teams, as well as
business owners mak-
ing donations, is worthy
of notice.
These are the same
folks you'll find leading
classes at church, giving
an hour or more to a
community project here
and there; the same
ones who volunteer at
sports events, school,
and club tasks.
Fort Meade Relay For
Life brought in more
than $79,000.
.Businesses inside
and outside of Fort
Meade donated to the
cause. Major corporate
sponsors were Mosaic,
FMMS PTO (Middle
School students raised
nearly $2,000), CF
Industries, and John
Stephens Citrus.
Contributors of $250
or more were Auto Paint
and Body of Lakeland,
Badcock & More,
Central Florida ENT,
Fort Meade Dixie Youth
Baseball, Hodgetel,
McLean Funeral Home,
Ray Davis Tax Service,
Sungrown Citrus,
Sunshine Growers,
Wauchula State Bank,
and WCA.
To put on a success-
ful event the level Relay
requires, the services
and facilities of others is
needed.
The Polk County
recreation department


has the best stage
around. They came at
dawn to set it up and
were back that night to
take it down.
The Lions Club made
available a large tent to
protect the audience
from the weather.
The City of Fort
Meade supplied electri-
cal poles for team sites
and for the stage.
Fort Meade Middle
Senior High School
Principal Arthur
Martinez allowed Relay
to be held at Frank S.
Battle Field. He and
Assistant Principal Kyle
Windham made sure
things ran smoothly.
At all Relays, sur-
vivors are the heroes,.
and Fort Meade hon-
ored ours with.a recep-
tion, sponsored by the
John Clyatt family and
Helpmates owners Tim
and Beth Mincey.
We had a wonderful
"wrap up", party at
Oakview Lakes due to
the graciousness of
Roger and Janet Wright.
The executive com-
mittee members
orchestrated the suc-
cess. They were team
coordinators Becky
Driskell, Wilma Coulter,
Wilma Gibson; corpo-
rate sponsorship chair-
men Audrey Davis and
Thelma Chambers;
logistics chairman
Sandy Mincey; survivors
chairmen Barbara
Walker, Barbara Manley,
and Sue Helms; enter-
tainment chairmen
Denise Harrell and

This year's teams
were 4-H, city of Fort
Meade, Colonial Bank,
Cornerstone Church of
God, First Baptist
Church Fruit of the
Spirit, First Baptist
Church Joy Club,

and the family of Helen
Williams.
From two people
who loved working with
you and for you, it was a
blessing. We enjoyed
every minute of it and
grew spiritually because
of our association with
you.
We look forward to
another successful Fort
Meade Relay for Life
next year with new
event chairmen, and
will support them in
their energy and dedica-
tion.

Business Incubators Will Focus On Tech


Late Tuesday, as violent thunder-
storms doused central Florida yet
again, Marshall Goodman sent a
tweet: "No need to worry about the
rain, Central Florida. Blue Sky is com-
ing soon!"
Goodman, vice president and CEO
of the University of South Florida
Polytechnic, announced today that
USFP's business incubation facilities
will be named Blue Sky. Earlier this
year the Central Florida Development
Council invested $700,000 toward the
construction of such a facility on the
new 1-4 campus, expected to open in
2012.
In the meantime, however, the
community will be served by at least
two incubation facilities: One in
Lakeland and one in Winter Haven,
dubbed Blue Sky West and Blue Sky
East.
West will be a 6,428 square-foot
location at 116 S. Kentucky Ave. in
Lakeland. East will open at 199 Ave. B
N.W. in Winter Haven with 3,000
square feet. USFP officials expect
both facilities to open in early fall
2009.
A tweet refers to a post on Twitter,
the popular social networking site.
Goodman used the relatively new
technology, as well as his personal
Facebook page, to tease online fol-
lowers not about the weather but
about economic development in
Central Florida.
The Blue Sky facilities will be the
first public business technology incu-
bators in Polk County. They will focus
on attracting and nurturing entrepre-
neurial businesses by creating a place
where USF Poly faculty, staff and stu-
dents can work with businesses to
develop innovative technology.
"This is an important step for our


region, as we cultivate a culture of
entrepreneurship and innovation,"
says Goodman. "These facilities will
provide opportunities for a wide
range of enterprises. Some will be raw
start-ups, and some will be more
advanced. Regardless of the stage,
Blue Sky represents an opportunity to
thrive."
According to Goodman, "The story
of innovation is the story of entrepre-
neurship, and entrepreneurship is all
about calculated risk. That is the prin-
ciple upon which we'll base Blue Sky.
We will provide a climate to nurture
innovation. This is a huge opportuni-
ty, not only for entrepreneurs but also
for investors. We hope it will bring to
this area more technology-oriented
businesses with the potential for
growth and new jobs"
Initially, USF Poly will seek infor-
mation-technology companies inter-
ested in software, networking and
developing specific IT projects.
"We have felt for the past five years
at least that an incubator is integral to
this region's long-term economic suc-
cess," said Tom Patton, executive
director of the Central Florida
Development Council, which has
donated a total of $1 million to the
USF Poly incubator concept. In addi-
tion to the $700,000 for construction
on the new campus, CFDC donated
$300,000 for current operation of Blue
Sky. USF Poly has pledged to match
those operating funds to provide
$600,000 to fund Blue Sky.
The $700,000 for construction will
be used to apply for state matching
funds and in pursuit of an Economic
Development Administration grant.
According to Patton, the long-term
goal is a technology park that devel-
ops around the incubator at the heart


USF Vice President Marshall Goodman
bators that will go online this fall

of Florida's High Tech Corridor.
"This is a major step forward in
developing and growing our technol-
ogy incubator," says Steve Budd,
USFP's program director for entrepre-
neurship and venture planning. "It
will become a living, learning labora-
tory for interdisciplinary and applied
research, education and training that
directly impacts technology commer-
cialization and business develop-
ment.
"Our incubator will be a focal point
where the university's academic
development and our community's
economic development will blend
and synergize to create a win-win for
all stakeholders -- the business com-
munity, our students, our faculty, and
many others. I believe that this is
where the magic happens, where we
will create high-tech, high-wage
jobs."
The U.S. Department of Commerce
Economic Development
Administration says business incuba-


tors provide communities with signif-
icantly greater results at less cost than
do any other type of public works
infrastructure project.
A recent study conducted for the
U.S. Economic Development
Administration showed that business
incubators provide communities with
significantly greater results at less
cost than do any other type of public
works infrastructure project. In the
study of the economic impacts and
federal costs of EDA construction
program investments, researchers
found that business incubators are
the most effective means of creating
jobs - more effective than roads and
bridges, industrial parks, commercial
buildings, and sewer and water proj-
ects. In fact, incubators provide up to
20 times more jobs than community
infrastructure projects (for example,
water and sewer projects) at a cost of
$144 to $216 per job compared with
$2,920 to $6,872 for the latter, the
report notes.


Insurance Bill Gets Crist Veto


A much debated bill
that would have deregu-
lated rates on some resi-
dential property insur-
ance policies fell victim
Wednesday to Gov.
Charlie Crist's veto pen.
I The bill (HB 1171)
would have let willing
homeowners buy high-
er-priced, unregulated
coverage for hurricanes,
fires and other property
hazards but only from
highly capitalized
national companies.
Reports have indicat-
ed that as many as 500
jobs at the State Farm
Winter Haven office
could be eliminated
because of the veto.
In his veto message,
Crist wrote that the


"Consumer Choice" bill,
instead, would have
given the choice to
those big insurers.
"These select proper-
ty insurance companies
will be able to cherry-
pick, or sell only to prof-
itable policyholder risks,
while at the same time
offloading their undesir-
able policyholders that
are higher risk to their
competitors and
Citizens Property
Insurance Corp.," Crist
wrote. ,,
Citizens was created
by the state to offer cov-
erage to consumers who
couldn't get it on the
private market. With pri-
vate companies bailing
out of coastal areas and


increasing their rates,
Citizens has grown to
become Florida's largest
property insurer, with
more than 1 million
policies. The bill's advo-
cates included State
Farm Florida, the state's
largest private property
insurer, which called the
legislation "a positive
step for Florida resi-
dents who expect and
deserve their insurer to
be there following a
major disaster."

COUNTY BRIEFS


School millage
rate to go up

The Polk County
School millage tax rate
will go up by a quarter
this fall, but district offi-
cials say most people
will still see a drop in
their overall school tax
.bill because of falling
property values.
The rate increase was
approved during a
school board meeting
Tuesday, and will be
reflected in tax bills this
November.
The discretionary
increase was authorized
by the state legislation
starting with the 2009-
10 school year. The local
vote was 6-1 in favor of
the measure, with board
member Tim Harris
casting the lone "no".
- ballot.
It is expected the
extra quarter will gener-
ate about $8 million in
revenue, most of which,
school officials said, will
go toward covering
employee reimburse-
ments for health care
costs. About $2 million
will be stashed in


reserve accounts, offi-
cials added.

Generic drugs
not always best

TALLAHASSEE (AP)
- A Florida law banning
the substitution of cer-
tain drugs must be fol-
lowed even if a generic
version gets federal
approval, a state appel-
late court ruled Monday.
A three-judge panel
of the 1st District Court
of Appeal unanimously
said it would be uncon-
stitutional for the
Legislature to give up its
authority over generic
swaps to the federal
Food and Drug
'Administration.
The law lists the
drugs for which generics
cannot be substituted.
It's up to the Legislature
to make any changes in
that list, the appellate
court ruled.
State Sen. Durrell
Peaden, a retired physi-
cian, agreed with the
ruling but said he may
ask for a study by the
Legislature's watchdog
agency to determine


whether the list should
be changed.
"The FDA has made
mistakes before,"
Peaden said. "I don't
think we should ever
delegate that power to
anybody."
The court sided with
Abbott Laboratories,
which appealed
Administrative Law
Judge Susan B. Harrell's
decision to remove a
thyroid drug, including
its name-brand
Synthroid, from the list.
"It upholds a funda-
mental right of patients
to receive the medica-
tions that are prescribed
and intended by their
doctors," said Abbott
spokesman Scott Stoffel
in Chicago.

Deputies
cleared in
shooting

BARTOW (AP) -
Prosecutors say three
deputies who fatally
shot a Central Florida
man who confronted
them with a rifle were
justified in their actions.
A letter from the


state's attorney's office
to the Polk County
Sheriff's Office released
Thursday says that
deputies who shot and
killed 27-year-old
Edmond Albert Sutton
on May 14 were cleared
of any wrongdoing.
Sutton's family had
called for help because
they say he had attacked
his mother. Deputies
Ivan Navarro, Kevin
Loder and Christopher
Diaz knocked on the
door and identified
themselves before enter-
ing.
Authorities say Sutton
came out from a closed
door with a loaded rifle
and leveled the weapon
at one of the deputies.
Sutton was told to drop
the rifle, and when he
refused, officials say he
was shot and killed.

No garbage
pickup July 4

The Polk County
Board of County
Commissioners' Waste
Resource Management
Division announced
that on July 4, there will


be no garbage or recy-
cling collection for the
unincorporated areas of
the county and the
North Central Landfill
will be closed. Garbage
and recycling collection
will not be rescheduled
but will be picked up on
the next scheduled col-
lection day.

County
reminds
about 9-1-1 use

The summer season
is often when Polk
Public Safety sees the
highest rise is misuse of
the 9-1-1 emergency
system. Students are out
of school and looking
for things to .occupy
their time. This misuse
ties up the phone lines
needed for true emer-
gency situations.
"9-1-1 is to be used
ONLY during emergen-
cies. An emergency any
event threatening life
and safety, requiring the
immediate response of
police, fire or EMS per-
sonnel," said Rosa
Driggs, Public Safety
Public Education


Officer.
Polk County Public
Safety encourages par-
ents to take time and
educate their children
on the importance of
using the 9-1-1 system
appropriately, the differ-
ence between a non-
emergency and a true
emergency, and proper
9-1-1 etiquette when
speaking with an opera-
tor during an emergency
call.
When you dial 9-1-1,
.the person who answers
your call is a trained
operator.
They will ask you
questions to determine
what kind of help you
need - fire, police, or
medical.
Be prepared to state
the nature of the emer-
gency, and please
answer all the questions.
Answering questions
does not delay response.
As they ask their ques-
tions, remain calm and
keep your answers as
short and direct as pos-
sible.

SWFWMD Keeps Water


Shortage Restrictions In Place


Tampa Bay Water's
service area remains at
the highest alert level,
Southwest Florida Water
Management District
spokeswoman Robyn
Felix said this week.
SWFWMD's Gover-
ning Board voted to con-
tinue fhe Modified
Phase IV (or Critical)
Water Shortage restric-
tions for potable water
use in the Tampa Bay
Water service area until
July 31, to extend Phase
III restrictions for
Charlotte, DeSoto,
Manatee and Sarasota
counties until July 31,
and to extend the Phase
II restrictions for the
remaining counties
(including Polk) until
Sept. 30.
"While the region is
out of the immediate
crisis, we are still con-
tending with the effects
of the long-term


drought," said David
Moore, District execu-
tive-director. "The May
rainfall helped but the
sunfmer rainy season
hasn't begun. We're
going to monitor condi-
tions closely over the
next month before eas-
ing any of the restric-
tions."
Tampa Bay Water's six
member governments
include Hillsborough,
Pasco and Pinellas coun-
ties as well as the cities
of Tampa, New Port
Richey and St.
Petersburg.
SWFWMD identifies.
four possible levels of
water'shortage, begin-
ning :with "moderate"
and increasing in inten-
sity through "severe,"
"extreme" and "critical."
With some river flows
and lake levels remain-
ing below normal, the
region's water shortage

status ranges from
"severe" to "critical." The
district's color-coded
Water Shortage Alert
Map identifies the status
for each county in the
district;
Peace River Manasota
Regional Water Supply
Authority Region, which'
covers Charlotte,
DeSoto, Manatee and
Sarasota counties
remains under the
District's Modified Phase.
III (or Extreme) Water
Shortage restrictions.
oWhile the region did
receive above normal
rainfall in May and
aquifer levels are in the
low normal range, lakes
are still averaging
between two and five
feet below the lowest
normal readings.
Although the Peace
River is currently experi-
encing riormal flows,
these flows have
declined in recent
weeks.
Remaining counties,
including Polk, cofitin-
ue to follow the
District's Modified
Phase II (or- Severe)
Water Shortage restric-
tions. The aquifer is in
the normal range, how-
ever some river flows
and lakes are still below


normal levels. The Phase
II restrictions were
approved by the
District's Governing
Board in January 2007
and have been extended
several times due to the
ongoing drought
impacts. District water
restrictions include lim-
iting lawn watering to a
maximum of one day
per week.
Residents also are
urged by SWFWMD to
continue conserving
water in other ways
indoors and outdoors at
their homes and busi-
nesses. "Residents
should consider turning
off their irrigation sys-
tems when it rains
before their next water-
ing day," Felix said.
"With outdoor irrigation
accounting for as much
as 50 percent of residen-
tial water usage, skip-
ping a week of water can
result in a significant
water savings."
These restrictions are
in effect until Sept. 30.
For more informa-
tion about watering
restrictions in your area,

ty, or visit the District's
Web site found at

actions .

Ham Radio Operators

Demo Modern Tech


Polk County
Composite Squadron of
the Civil Air Patrol will
demonstrate amateur
radio as part of the
annual "Field Day"
today from 4 to 8 p.m.
and Sunday, June 28,
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The demonstration
will be held at 2190
Marshall Edwards Drive
in Bartow, and will show
ham radio's capabilities,
including the newest
digital and satellite
capabilities, voice com-
munications, and even
historical Morse code.
Attendees also will
learn how to get their
own FCC radio license.
Also, information on the
Civil Air Patrol will be


presented.
Ham radio operators
have provided critical
communications in
emergencies. During
Hurricane Katrina, ham
radio was often the only
way people could com-
municate, and 'thou-
sands of volunteer
"hams" traveled south to
save lives and property.
Their slogan, "When
all else fails," refers to
how hams can send
messages in many forms
without the use of
phone lines or any other
infrastructure that can
be lost in a crisis.

amateur radio, visit

Scholarship Houses Save


Students $5,000+ Per Year


= . 'I " . , ' -
Campus I Citizenship winners were Alexis Reall, Destiny Goluba, Houston
Stanphill, Alexis King, Ethan Parker, and Karley Lopez. - (Photos provided)


College students who
land a place in one of
the 25 Southern
'Scholarship Foundation
houses at Florida uni-
versities can save more
than $5,000 a year in
room and board costs.
That is the observa-
tion of Ervin Goad, a
recipient of a Bartow
Rotary Club scholarship
and a resident of one of
the SSF houses at the
University of Florida in
Gainesville.
Goad told the Rotary
Club that the estimated
cost for off-campus
room and board is
$7,000 a year. In two


semesters at UF, he has
paid $1,650. That is his
share of groceries and
utilities for a home
shared by 16 students.
The foundation pays
for the houses and
maintenance, and stu-
dents share the cost of
groceries and utilities.
There are 25 SSF
houses in Florida, locat-
ed at UF, Florida State
University, Florida A&M
University, and Gulf
Coast University, hous-
ing students from the
freshman class through
graduate school.
Each has room for 16
students, with the


exception of two houses
for medical students,
which have only eight
residents.
The houses are sup-
ported entirely by dona-
tions, and receive no
state or federal funds,
Goad said.
Goad is a "Southern
Scholarship ambassa-
dor," and makes speak-
ing engagements to pro-
mote the foundation.
Dr. William Gill said
that Rotary clubs sup-
port one house each at
FSU and UE Lions and
Kiwanis Clubs also sup-
port Scholarship
Houses, he said.

Enjoy An Active Summer: Get Moving With TOPS Ideas


From TOPS Clubs, Inc.

When kids skip away
from their school desks
for the summer, and
parents wave goodbye
to their office desks for
vacation, it's time to
stop sitting and get
moving.
Bicycling, - walking,
and geocaching are just
a few of the ways that
the whole family can
enjoy summertime.
June has been desig-
nated as Great
Outdoors Month, so it's
an appropriate time to
spotlight family hiking
and biking.
TOPS Club, Inc. (Take
Off Pounds Sensibly),
the nation's original
nonprofit weight-loss
support organization,
recommends regular
exercise as part of a
healthy lifestyle.
It's important to get
kids moving, so that
grod habits can start
early. Group activities,
such as a backyard vol-
leyball game, can make
overweight children feel
more like they're having
fun and less like they're
exercising.
Here are some tips


for parents to encour-
age their children to be
active:
* Call nature centers
to find out when they're
planning family hikes or
if they need volunteers
to maintain trails. Many
facilities plan special
events during school
breaks.
* Initiate a house rule
that playing video
games or watching TV
should be stopped after
one hour. Setting a limit
on electronics helps
avoid "couch potato"
syndrome.
I * Provide a child with
a piece of outdoor
equipment, such as a
kite, bicycle, or inline
skates. Offer a choice
among two or three
items. The novelty fac-
tor of the "new" item
can be a catalyst for get-
ting outdoors.

Ride On
Family bike rides
offer fresh air, exercise,
and stress relief. Since
families can bike as an
after-work and after-
school activity, a ride
can be a relaxed bond-
ing experience at the
end of the day.


Physically, riding a
bike increases circula-
tion to legs and
strengthens leg mus-
cles. Cardiovascular
benefits, such as lower
blood pressure and cho-
lesterol levels, come
with an increased over-
all heart rate, which can
reduce the risk of heart
attacks.
Rides are enhanced
by good planning.
Along with properly
outfitting each rider
with bicycles, helmets,
and sneakers, a family
that bicycles should
include bottles of water
for everyone.
Follow these tips for
smooth cycling:
* Take a few short
rides around the block
to establish a practical
speed, taking into
account the pace of
children.
* Review the "rules of
the road," which
include -looking both
ways at stop signs, using
hand signals, and
always riding with, and
to the right of, traffic.
* Attach a bell on the
handlebars to alert
other riders of travel
intentions, such as


"passing on the left."

Walk the Walk
Walking is an excel-
.lent cardiovascular and
toning exercise. As
TOPS members shed
pounds, many. start
walking as their exercise
of choice.
For walkers' conven-
ience, it helps to find a
nearby park with a well-
marked path, so traffic
isn't a concern.
Walking can become
shared family -time,
because it offers the
chance to talk and
reconnect. Family after-
dinner walks allow par-
ents to. model good
exercise habits, and
children who pick up
the exercise habit at a
young age are more
likely to continue to be
active as adults.
Here are some'tips to
follow when stepping
ouft
* Challenge walkers
periodically to go a little
farther periodically.
* Look for routes that
offer a combination of
inclined and flat paths,
so that strong walkers
are challenged but
slower walkers get a


rest.
* Keep a log of dis-
tance covered. Over the
course of a month,, a
inotivating total can be
logged. Consider small
rewards for each 10.
miles walked.


Visitors are welcome
to attend their first
TOPS meeting free of
charge. To find a local
chapter, view
www.tops.org or call
(800) 932-8677 for more

From postcard of Mary
Jaques.

"We went up to see this
new house dedicated last
week Friday. had a big crowd
and a big barbecue. Killed 25.
beefs, 28 hogs and 40 sheep
and baked 60 bushels of
sweet potatoes. Bigest [sic]
picnic I was ever too. [sic]
Some where round 6,000 *
people there."

Tampa Tribune "
June 1909


"Six thousand people assembled in Bartow
today and enjoyed a good time in spite of the
frowns of Jupiter Pluvius, who insisted on ma k-
ing "a wet town" of Bartow in spite of all
advanced local laws and ordinances. Before the
procession, during the procession, and after
the procession, the rain clouds would break
unexpectedly, but could not cool the enthusi-
asm of the passing throngs which filled the
awning covered sidewalks, the stores, the hotels
and ice cream and soda water parlors, and the
splendid new magnesium limestone court
house which all had come to honor. The beau -
tiful stone was brought from Bedford, Ind., and
the stately, commodious and handsome struc-
ture was erected under contract by the Mutual
Construction Company of Louisville, Ky., and
E.C. Hosford & Co., were the architects to whom
so much honor is due.
"The cost of the building and furnishings
was about $90,000 and the citizens of Bartow
and Polk County generally seem mightily
pleased with their investment. This is the third
court house built by Polk County since it was
created by division from Hillsborough County
about fifty years ago."

Polk County's grand old courthouse in.Bartow will be'acknowledged for 100 years of service to residents at a
celebration today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. - (Staff photo by Peggy Kehoe)


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Livestock hasn't been "invited" to
today's centennial celebration of the
Historic Polk County Courthouse, as
it was to the opening in. 1909, but
there will be a barbecue all the same.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, Polk
County residents can join in the
party to commemorate "a magnifi-
cent building."
The historic courthouse shows
"the pride of Polk County citizens in
good government," Polk County
Historical Museum Curator Tom
Muir .said. "It represents Polk County
government and its role in the qual-
ity of life of our citizens. With 100
years of history it's a place where
there are a lot of memories."
Those memories are one of the
most important aspects of today's
event. PGTV will be on hand to
record the memories of employees.
who worked in the old courthouse,
and visitors to the courthouse, too.
Many residents got their marriage
licenses there, or served on juries, or,
less pleasantly, were tried in the
now-restored courtrooms on the
second floor.
One man told Muir how he had no
phone years ago, and relied on the
pay phone in a booth on the second
floor.
"You've got to have memories to
lie in the present," Muir said. "We
save our memories so we can move
forward."
The courthouse was built in a
style popular in that day, designed
by an architect who did courthouses
across the Southeast.
"It represents ,a period when
architecture was ornate," Muir said,
"built to be a magnificent building,
as opposed to later buildings that
were more utilitarian, that were built
to fit the function rather than built
to be a symbol."
More than any other building, the
old courthouse remains a symbol of
Polk County, a solid reminder of the
county's nickname, "Imperial Polk
County."
Once the Polk County
Commission decided that a new
facility was needed in the 1980s, the
question became what to do with
the old, columned structure. When
the last employees left in 1987, the
building was cluttered with paneled
partitions used to create extra office
space,, according to an exhibit in the
Historical Museum. Even the court-
room balconies were" enclosed and
used as offices.
In 1989, the building was named
t6 the National Register of Historic
Places. This and the urgings of the.
Polk County Historical Commis-
sion and many citizens resulted in
the restoration of the courthouse for
use as a historical museum and to
house the Historical and
Genealogical Library.
"The ultimate goal is to have the
finest historical and genealogical
library in the South, as well as hav-
ing a museum that Polk County will
flourish from and enjoy having," the
late E.D. "Bud" Dixon, former clerk
of courts, said.
Funded through state preserva-
tion grants, county money and pri-


vate contributions, the complete
project took about 10 years. The red
brick walkways around the building
are one way money was raised. For a
contribution to the restoration, peo-
ple could have personalized bricks
engraved and placed in the walk-
ways.
During the summer of 1909, an
estimated 6,000 of the 10,000 people
who lived in Polk Countydrove early
cars and horse-drawn carriages or
rode into Bartow on horseback for
speeches, an auto parade and barbe-
cue to mark the grand opening of the
brand new courthouse.
A 1909 postcard, contributed by
Bonnie J. Smith of Frostproof, is part
of the courthouse exhibit on display
now in the museum. On it her great-
aunt, Mary Jaques, writes of her trip
to Bartow.
Frank and Mary Jaques moved to
Frostproof in 1895 to grow pineap-
ples and citrus. Mary wrote in her
diary June 27, 1909: "Mrs. Gifford,
Frank and I went to Bartow for the
dedication of the Courthouse. We
had an early start, and got in to
Bartow by 1:00 p.m. We did our
shopping, some of it, and the next
morning we did the balance, and'
enjoyed the day. The music was good
ad the dinner very good. We camped
in Wilbur Willis' door yard and Mrs.
Gifford slept in the house. We came
home on Saturday arriving at noon.
It was hot and we had big showers
during the afternoon."
Hoping for no showers today,


organizers have planned a program
similar to the 1909 event, when an
estimated 6,000 of the 10,000 people
who lived in Polk County drove cars
and horse-drawn carriages or rode
into Bartow on horseback for
speeches, an auto parade and barbe-
cue to mark the grand opening of the
brand new courthouse.
Seven historical organizations
will take part in today's celebration,
PGTV will be taping people's
remembrances, and the museum
will be open with exhibits on a num-
ber of facets of Polk County and its
residents, including showing of the
"Polk Pioneers" video.
Bayside Brass Quintet will play
two sets between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Food will be served from 11 a.m.
"until it runs out," Muir said. At
noon, Assistant County Manager Lea
Ann Thomas will offer the invoca-
tion and introduce special guests.
County Commissioners Ed Smith
and Randy Wilkinson will make
remarks, and Genealogical Library
Manager Joe Spann will read a poem.
written in 1909 about the court-
house clock. Then it will be time for
singing "Happy Birthday" and cut-
ting the birthday cake.
The free event will take place at
the Polk County Historic
Courthouse, 100 East Main Street in
Bartow.

Polk County Historical Museum at
534-4386, or visit Polk County on the
Web, www.polk-county.net.


The courthouse was a popular subject for postcards.
