Bartow struck bv home invasions


By STEVE STEINER
STAFF WRITER
Bartow police were
kept hopping the wee
hours of the morning
Monday, Dec. 6, re-
sponding to two home
invasions several hours
apart.
In the first incident,
patrol officers Bill
Stevens and Brandon
Reed responded to a call
around midnight of a
home invasion/domes-
tic violence occurrence


By STEVE STEINER
STAFF WRITER
Representatives from
the construction and
related industries are
pleased.
Their message to Polk
County Commissioners
on Dec. 1 was heard loud
and clear: The six month
impact fee moratorium
is not enough. Extend it
at least 18 months to two
years preferably the
latter. The extra time is
necessary in order to get
construction projects un-
der way and completed,
they said.
Bob Ziegenfuss, the di-
rector of civil engineering
services with Interplan
LLC, of Orlando, said the
need for more time was
crucial, primarily due to
paperwork.
"That process takes
three to four months," he
said, adding that was just
the beginning.
At the time he spoke,
several days after com-
missioners approved the
extension an additional
18 months, he said he
would be attending a
county staff level meet-
ing the following week.
That would be followed
by two public hearings
held a month apart each.


at 1475 Austin St. As a
result, Detective William
Lawson was notified and
responded.
He determined the
suspect, Ernest Ali McAl-
lister, 26, had broken into
the home of his es-
tranged wife, who had a
court-ordered injunction
for protection from him.
Once inside, McAllister
struck the victim several
times with his hands,
police report. At the time,
she was holding her in-


In addition, his client -
Krystals, a hamburger
chain needs waiv-
ers and variances. The
county wants the build-
ing set back 35 feet from
the road. His client wants
a 32-foot setback.
"(You have) a mini-
mum eight to nine
months right there," he
said.
That is before ground
is even broken, he added.
Once all the paperwork
and hearings are dis-
pensed with, assuming
approval, there is the
actual construction time
itself, which Ziegenfuss
said is at least another 90
days, on average. On top
of that, once construc-
tion is completed, there
are further inspections
before the business can
actually begin operations.
The impact fee mora-
torium was a factor
in where to locate the
restaurant, which is on
the county side of Cy-
press Gardens Boulevard
rather than on the Winter
Haven side. As a result, a
savings of approximately
$150,000 will be realized.
"That's a sizable
amount of money," said
Ziegenfuss. "It made a big

Lioness


Club


closes

Organization
ends after
34-year
journey
By PEGGY KEHOE
MANAGING EDITOR
Bartow Lioness Club's
final meeting was "the
end of a journey, not
the end of friendships,"
President Ginger Fortner
told members and guests
Monday night at Bartow
Civic Center.
Lionesses were cel-
ebrating their last Christ-
mas as a club, their,34
years of service to the
community, and their
friendship.
Although it was a sad
occasion as well, Fortner
'said they had become
reconciled to the club's
disbanding and plan to
maintain their fellow-ship
with "doe" lunches and
dinners.
Smiles, hugs, and good
memories were passed
around all evening.
Lioness members and
their guestsalso got to
share a happy event with
vocalist Brady Draper,
who sang several Christ-
mas songs. He closed his
program with a surprise
love song for his wife,
Debbie, who attended the
party, too. Monday, Dec.
6, was their 13th wedding
anniversary.
Four of five remaining
charter members were
present: Lillian Anderson,
Marietta King, Lois Losh
and Frances Williams.
Barbara Nelson was un-
able to attend.
The club began in 1976
as an organization for the
wives of Lions Club mem-
bers. The small group of

TALLAHASSEE (AP) -A legislative
economist told the Senate Budget Com-
mittee on this week she expects a pre-
dicted $2.5 billion budget gap to widen
because the state's economic recovery
has been slower than forecast.
The panel's chairman, JD Alexander
of Lake Wales, hinted that Gov. -elect
Rick Scott's campaign promises for
deep spending and tax cuts may run
into trouble in the Legislature.
Alexander said it's too early to tell
whether lawmakers will be able to
cut spending by $4 billion or reduce
property and corporate income taxes as
Scott proposed during his campaign.
"Now we are in the governing mode,"
Alexander said. I would hope that
all of us take a deep breath and move
away from campaign rhetoric and start
focusing on how do we make the best
decisions possible to move our state
forward."
State economists in September
estimated the S2.5 billion difference


between anticipated revenues and
expenses ranging from high priority to
critical for the the budget year.
Amy Baker, coordinator of the
Legislature's Office of Economic and
Demographic Research, told the com-
mittee all the numbers haven't yet
been crunched, but it looks like general
revenue will be lower and costs higher
than in the prior forecast.
B4er's bad news includes up to $400
million more in state Medicaid ex-
penses and $150 million less in school
property tax collections due to a 1.2
percent drop in real estate values.
The state also expects to collect $30
million less from utility gross receipt
taxes earmarked for education con-
struction and maintenance projects.
Gasoline and other transportation taxes
also are expected to drop, which would
cut funding for road building and
maintenance.
Economists will meet Dec. 14 to up-
date their forecast of general revenue.

Fire destroys garage apartment


By JEFF ROSLOW
EDITOR
A child awoke in the
family's garage apart-
ment Wednesday to find
the place on fire. He
awoke his two siblings
and mother and they
escaped from the blaze
without injury.
The garage apartment
at 16801/2 Wallace Ave.,
was a total loss to Thurs-
day morning's fire that
was ruled accidental by
the state fire marshal.
Bartow Fire Depart-
ment chief Jay Robinson
said the fire did not
appear to be an electri-
cal failure but the family
was using the stove keep
warm. The father was
not home during the fire
as he had left for work.
"There was a heater in
the area, but that's not
what started it," Robin-
son said. "They were us-
ing the stove for heating."
The family lost every-
thing in the fire, their
clothes and electrical ap-
pliances, Robinson said.
He said the family may
have a place to go, but
their possessions are lost.
The American Red Cross
also responded. The fire
started at 8:11 a.m. and
took about 20-30 min-
utes to extinguish. The
fire department and fire
marshal's office was there

until almost noon.
"There was an exten-
sive amount of damage
to go through," Robinson
said. "Everything was
destroyed."
With colder weather
continuing next week
and more coming in the
next few months, fire of-
ficials warn people to use
proper equipment for
heating.
"Don't use appliances
for heating," said Detec-
tive Stacy McIntyre of the
state fire marshal's office.


"They are not meant for
heating the house and
should only be used for
normal purposes."
Though this weekend's
weather is warming up,
there is some more cold-
er weather coming this
week. According to the
National Weather Service
Sunday night's low tem-
perature is forecast to be
35 degrees, Monday's low
will be 26 and it will get
to 34 on Tuesday.


The Florida Supreme
Court has refused to back
off from a prior ruling
that excludes evidence
obtained by police if they
knock on a suspect's door
but fail to announce why
they are there.
The 4-2 decision Thurs-
day came in the case of


Kathy Jo Cable who was
arrested in 2007 at a mo-
tel in Lake Wales.
A Polk County deputy
announced who he was
when he knocked but
failed to say he had a
warrant for her arrest for
failure to appear on a
drug possession charge.


Once inside he found
methamphetamine that
resulted in a drug traffick-
ing charge against Cable.
The high court ruled
the methamphetamine
had to excluded as evi-
dence, citing a 1964 deci-
sion in a similar case.

Both the work session
and public meeting of the
Bartow City Commission-
ers Monday proceeded
smoothly, closing 2010 on
a positive note.
During the work ses-
sion, city attorney Sean
Parker said he had been
informed the recycling
participation rate of Bar-
towans was at 80 percent.
The building assess-
ment of the cigar factor
has been completed,
City Manager George A.
Long said, adding that
temporary repairs were
currently under way. Also
in the works, he said, was
compiling a "laundry list"
of estimated costs.
The citizens group that
played an integral role
in sparing (so far) the
wrecking ball has now
been charged with put-
ting together financial
resources. In total, Long
was optimistic the city
will be able to comply to
the Polk County commis-
sioners requirements.
"I have every reason
to believe we're going to
meet the conditions," he
said.
Long spoke with Parker
about getting together
with county attorney
Michael Craig and getting
the documents transfer-

ring the property "roll-
ing."
"Thus far, everything is
on track," he said.
Commissioner Pat Huff
asked whether the county
was moving any property
it possessed that might
currently be stored in the
factory. Long responded
that nothing was taking
place on the part of the
county and that might be
because the county was
waiting upon the success-
ful transfer of the prop-
erty to the city.
In another matter,
Commissioner Leo
Longworth asked about
the status of the gateway
facility proposed on Polk
Street beneath the Van
Fleet Drive overpass. The
city manager said it was
his goal to have the plans
approved by March 2011
with construction com-
pleted by June.
On another positive
note, Main Street Direc-
tor Mikel Dorminy gave
an update on the prog-
ress of the Main Street
business incubator. One
retail establishment has
already opened its doors
for business, another will
be up and running within
several weeks, two more
have been approved, and
a fifth application is being
reviewed.
Dorminy said these
businesses were either

crossing, officials said. It
will begin at 9 a.m. and
repairs should be com-
pleted and the road re-
opened by noon, a press
release said.

expansions of current
operations or businesses
that had now outgrown
home-based operations.
She added the Main
Street program would
love to have an entrepre-
neurial operation starting
from scratch among the
mix in the incubator.
Interest, she said, was
such that even those
businesses that didn't
relate to the mission and
goal, being a retail estab-
lishment, had applied.
Included among those
that hadn't qualified were
a pet grooming business
and a recording studio.
Those and other busi-
nesses, she said, had been
referred to other potential
sites.
"We're hoping to mar-
ket all of downtown," she
said.
Planning Director
Bob Wiegers presented
that department's
study on changes to
the sign ordinance, and
its recommendations.
Mayor Wayne Lewis asked
whether the commission-
ers needed to take imme-
diate action. Wiegers said
this was not a time-sensi-
tive issue and that further
tweaking might be a pos-
sibility. He suggested that
the commissioners review
the report and determine
what direction to take at
its January meeting.

Bartow fire reminds us to be safe during holidays


Decorations are going up, kitchens
are busy with cookies being baked
and temperatures are dropping into
the 30s. That can only mean one
thing: The risk of house fires has
increased. A house fire on Wallace
Street in Bartow left five people
homeless Wednesday. Preliminary
reports say the fire may have been
caused by an appliance used for
heat.
So while filling the wassail bowl
and putting up your Christmas tree
this year, take a minute to think
about fire safety in your home.
First off, the sudden drop in tem-
perature means space heaters will
be pulled out of storage and plugged
in. Be sure to check for frayed cords.
Test the heater in a safe place before
you walk away and leave it glowing.
And always, with any portable
heater, be sure to place it far away
from anything flammable. Three
feet is a good rule of thumb. And
don't leave the space heater running


I OUR VIEWPOINT
when you go to bed; just put anoth-
er blanket on the bed.
Also, it's best not to use the old
kerosene camp heater. Liquid fuels
and flames always pose a risk of fire.
If you insist on using a kerosene
heater, make sure your room and
house are well-ventilated.
And, by the way, fire officials
always advise people not to turn on
their ovens and leave the door open.
If you've got a fireplace that you
haven't used in a year, check the
chimney first to make sure some-
thing is not blocking it. Before you
set the match to kindling, poke your
head into the fireplace opening
and look up. As an alternative for
the soot-averse, take a hand mirror
and angle it so that you can view
the interior of the chimney, in the
daylight.
If it appears creosote has built
up along the chimney lining, don't


start the fire. Call someone to check
it and clean it first. When you do
eventually start a fire, make sure
you use a fireplace screen so sparks
don't pop out onto a rug.
As for decorations and Christmas
lights, look again for frayed wires.
Don't overload circuits and exten-
sions cords. Don't string too many
strands of lights together; they will
burn out. Or worse.
While you're at it, consider switch-
ing to LED lights. They are more
expensive initially, but they con-
sume far less energy than traditional
lights.
They also burn cooler.
Then there is the candle question.
Candles are intrinsic to Hanukkah
and Advent ceremonies. People love
lighting candles during the holiday
season. They are festive, but they are
also dangerous. Keep open flames
away from curtains, trees and
decorations. Keep candles up high, ,
away from children and pets. And


don't leave books of matches lying
around; put them back in a drawer
afterwards.
Be alert when cooking. Remem-
ber, nearly 30 percent of all house
fires start in the kitchen.
Don't leave things unattended on
the stove. Use a timer. Keep grease
from splattering. Wear a flame-retar-
dant apron and keep all flammable
materials away from the stove.
Most important, make sure you
have functioning smoke detectors.
Check the batteries in your alarms;
replace old ones. If you don't have a
fire extinguisher in your home, buy
one. Keep it handy; make sure all
adults know where it's kept.
It's always wise to have a family
evacuation plan, no more so than
during the winter holiday season
when the risk of fire increases.
Take a moment to review your
plan with the entire family. Make
your holiday festive, but make it
safe.


Powder on a pig's nose


In the Declaration
of Independence; our
forefathers made a bold
statement of what it
meant to be a citizen of
this emerging nation;
"We hold these Truths
to be self-evident, that all
Men are created equal,
that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain
unalienable rights, that
among these are Life,
Liberty, and the Pursuit of
Happiness."
The latter phrase
sometimes is rearranged
by younger citizens to the
Happiness of Pursuit. I
have no quarrel with that.

The assertion of the
rights to Life and Liberty
is absolute; the assertion
regarding Happiness is
the right to pursue it.
It's your right, Bubba;
the pursuit is up to you.
Today, we probably
take the rights to Life and
Liberty without a second
thought. That is, in large
part, what it means to be
an American. It was not
always thus in the world,
nor is it today in many
nations.

While the Declaration
of Independence sets
forth the concepts of
these rights, it is the Con-
stitution that enumerates
them:
The right to be

The right to confront

1) opinion that provides
pertinent clarity about
M 3M5 the tension between
1. judging and majoritarian-
Ays by ism. The Texas Supreme
k county Democrat, Court, on which Don
1-0120 Willett sits, struck down a


law for violating the Texas
Constitution's prohibi-
tion of retroactive laws.
The law immunized one
company from a pending
lawsuit by a man dying
-of asbestos exposure. The
question was: Should the
court blindly defer to the
Legislature's judgment
that its police power -
its general authority to
protect the public welfare
- trumped the constitu-
tional ban on retroactive
legislation?
The court said no. What
Willett said in his concur-
ring opinion is pertinent
to the health insurance
mandate.
Has the U.S. Supreme
Court construed the
Commerce Clause so
permissively that Con-
gress has seized, by
increments, a sweeping
police power that enables
it to do virtually anything
it wants? Willett's words,
applied to the Obamacare
mandate debate, high-
light this question: When
does judicial deference
to legislative majorities
become dereliction of the
judicial duty to discern
limits to what majorities
are lawfully permitted to
do?
Willett says: In our
democracy, the legisla-
ture's policymaking power
"though unrivaled, is not
unlimited." The Consti-
tution reigns supreme:
"There must remain
judicially enforceable


constraints on legislative
actions that are irrecon-
cilable with constitutional
commands."
Thus a legislature's
judgment that a mea-
sure is desirable does
not relieve a court of the
duty to judge whether it
is constitutional. "The
political branches decide
if laws pass; courts decide
if laws pass muster,"
wrote Willett. Judges must
recognize that legislators'
policymaking primacy "is
not constitutional carte
blanche to regulate all
spheres of everyday life;
pre-eminence does not
equal omnipotence."
What Willett says of the
states' police power is
applicable to Congress'
power under the Com-
merce Clause: "When
police power becomes
a convenient talisman
waved to shortcircuit our
constitutional design,
deference devolves into
dereliction." And: "If leg-
islators come to believe
that police power is an
ever-present constitu-
tional trump card they
can play whenever it suits
them, overreaching is
inexorable."
The judiciary's role as
referee of constitutional
disputes is,Willett says,
"confined yet conse-
quential." But, "If judicial
review means anything,
it is that judicial restraint
does not allow every-
thing." And there can
come a "constitutional
tipping point" where, by
excessive deference to a
legislature in the face of
a constitutional limita-
tion, "adjudication more
resembles abdication."

After starting the sea-

welcomed the Auburn-

town Friday, Dec. 3 for
their home opener.
With Auburndale being
a district opponent, get-

Yellow Jackets would be
crucial for seeding in the
5A District 6 tournament.
Knowing the importance
of the game, the Yellow
Jackets got off to a fast
start, getting a layup on
their first possession,
forcing the Bloodhounds
to call a quick timeout.
The Yellow Jackets rode
that momentum to lead
14-7 after the first period
of play.
The Yellow Jack-
ets forced 16 first half
turnovers, but failed to
capitalize the turnovers
into points, and took a
21-16 lead in the half.
Twelve first half turnovers
kept the Bloodhounds in
the game.
Auburndale came out
of the locker room hot,
forcing some turnovers
and converting them into
easy opportunities to
take a seven-point lead
midway through the third
quarter.

They both won their

accomplishment for a

to compete against, and

erase the deficit and the
score was tied at 42 after
three quarters.
In the fourth quarter,
they continued to rely
on the hot hand of Rod
Robinson and he de-
livered on the interior
finishing with 24 points
and 10 rebounds on 12-
15 shooting. Chris Perry
added 9 points and six
rebounds on the interior
to overcome 25 turnovers
for the victory. The Yellow
Jacket defense forced
the Bloodhounds into 26
turnovers and the defense
is what eventually led
Coach Mcgriff's squad to
a 51-45 victory to improve
to 3-1 and 2-0 in 5A Dis-

the Bloodhounds with 14
points.
Next, the Jackets wel-

The festivities started

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi


When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with
the cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And
they worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and
shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses
open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could support
our families.

Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
* BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If
you still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If
you're wondering what you can do, well the next time you're
shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.

suspected amount of the
theft decreased as police
were able to reverse
an ACH withdrawal for
about S99,000. So now
the city is reporting a
loss of S465,000. Original
estimates from city of-
ficials had placed the loss
at around S600,000. Gillis
said as the investigation
continues to unfold,
the total amount of the
disappearance might
change.
"We are hoping to con-
tinue that trend down-
ward," he said.
The FBI has been
contacted, the chief
noted, and has pledged
any services the city
may need to assist in the
investigation.
For now, local police
are handling the matter


i Lake Wales theft


in conjunction with the
FDLE and the the State
Attorney's Office.
Documents subpoe-
naed earlier in the week
have begun filing in, and
police hope the trail will
lead them to the thief
or thieves who took the
money. Right now, police
are tight-lipped on any
leads they may have
developed.
Gillis notes he wants
to make absolutely clear
that regarding city em-
ployees, it's the job of law
enforcement to "protect
the innocent.
"I'm not going to
release information nor
would I want to release
and say that we are
focusing on one person,"
he said at Thursday's
emergency commission


meeting called by the
mayor called.
City manager Judty
Delmar noted the citv's
insurer, Public Risk
Management, has been
contacted 1 g i, ti., the
theft, but has not vet in-
dicated how much of the
loss they will cover.
The chief urged com-
missioners and city staff


members to "yield any
questions relating to
criminal investigations"
to the police department.

working diligently to
solve the case, "to make
sure that we can recover

Is Coffee Good or Bad for Your Heart?

As you age, your blood vessels often become stiff to increase the risk of
high blood pressure. Luckily, a new study done through the University Of
Athens by Greek researchers showed the surprising link between drinking
coffee and preventing high blood pressure.

Previous research has been inconclusive as to whether or not coffee is bad or
good for the heart. This new study was done on 485 men and women within
the age group of 65 to 100 who lived on a small island in the Aegean Sea
called Ikaria. The natives of this island normally live up to their 90th birth-
day, and the researchers wanted to find out their secret to long life.

All of the participants within the study had high blood pressure, and they
underwent scans to determine the state of the stiffness of their blood vessels.
Within the group, 11% drank 3 or more cups of Joe each day, 56% drank 1
to 2 cups of coffee per day, and 33% drank less than one cup or no coffee
at all. The participants in the group that consumed 1 to 2 cups of coffee per
day also had 25% more elasticity in their blood vessels than those who did
not drink any coffee whatsoever.

This study also took into account other factors that can affect aging in the
blood vessels, such as gender, smoking, physical activity, age, education,
blood pressure, body weight, diet, and diabetes. The study also revealed that
those participants that drank 1 to 2 cups of coffee each day were less likely
to have cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, or be overweight.

What is the reason for this?

The men and women within the study mostly drank traditional Greek cof-
fee that came in small, espresso-sized servings. This Greek coffee is much
stronger and contains more caffeine than espresso, and it also contains im-
portant compounds, like magnesium, potassium,1.1 .I, ...J- vitamin E, and
niacin to combat damage to the blood vessels caused by age. These com-
pounds blocked the damaging effects of oxidation that can create inflam-
mation in the blood vessels. This oxidation will also produce free radical
damage, which will injure the cells in the body and cause stiffness in the
blood vessels, resulting in high blood pressure.

Traditional Greek style coffee has more of these compounds than other cof-
fee methods because it is unfiltered and boiled. The study results showed
that hypertensive patients are recommended to drink coffee in moderation at
1 to 2 cups per day to slow down the advances of arterial aging.

One other interesting aspect of the study was that the participants normally
drank their coffee at home or in cafes as they relaxed, meaning that there
could be psychological benefits to regularly drinking coffee to benefit the
heart. This is fantastic news for fans of coffee, so take the time to try differ-
ent coffee brew methods, like Greek style coffee, which you can enjoy in
moderation to protect your heart health!

ring, and observed Love
on the ground with a
masked man standing
over him armed with a
handgun. Klimczak was
then robbed of his cell
phone. After the robbery,
the suspect fled.


Love was able to give
Rhoden a description
of the suspect and his
vehicle. A be on the
lookout was issued for
the vehicle. Fenton
subsequently located the
vehicle at 1050 Golfview
Ave. Upon stopping it, a
passenger fled on foot. A
K-9 from the Polk County
Sheriff's Office was called


in to track the suspect.
The K-9 led officers to a
neighboring apartment
complex. During this,
Detective Sgt. David W,-
ant assumed the investi-
gation.
Contact was made at
the residence indicated
by the K-9 track where
the suspect was ordered
from the residence and


pending a five-minute
delay, did as requested.
Snell denied any knowl-
edge of the home inva-

Wyant then inter-
viewed the driver of the
van, Butler, 20, who ad-
mitted she did drive.the
suspect to the residence
on Gay Street. She stated
she had no knowledge


of the robbery intent,
that she thought she
and Snell were going to
purchase narcotics.
According to Butler,
she was in the residence
talking to Love while
Snell remained in the
van. As she and Love
conversed, Snell, wearing
a mask, forced his way
into the residence and


attacked Love. Butler fled
the residence only to be
rejoined by the suspect a
block away.
Snell was arrested on
charges of home invasion
robbery and wearing a
mask during the com-
mission of a felony.
No charges are pend-
ing at this time against
Butler.


LIONESS: Club closes doors after 34 years of service


FROM PAGE 1
wives saw a need for a
community service club,
with a goal of meeting
the needs of the sight-
and hearing-impaired.
Later, it was opened
to other women, too,
as men's service clubs
became co-ed.
Members today range
from young women
to middle age to those
blessed in years, and
have been members
from as little as a year to
as many as 34 years.
Diane Willis, a member
for a year, wanted to help
others and repay the
community. The club's
biggest fundraisers are
the annual bazaar and
popular yearly golf tour-
nament.
Evelyn Brown, who
became a Lioness 18
months ago, said the


fall golf tournament was
one of her favorite club
events.
Although facing the
end of their club, mem-
bers didn't stop their
community service, and
held their annual party
for the sight-impaired
the Saturday before the
final club meeting.
As usual, the party
was well-attended, with
about 100 people cel-
ebrating Christmas, this
year in the First United
Methodist Church fellow-
ship hall.
"We've had a good
time, but all good things
come to an end," Betty
Hain, a member since
1982, said philosophi-
cally. She has enjoyed the
close relationships with
fellow club members and
said she will most miss
the fellowship. But she


looks forward to getting
together with the "con-
genial group" every few
months.
One of the younger
members, Kathy Franks
of Fort Meade, brought
her husband and two
children as guests. She
became a Lioness 10
years ago primarily to
help the blind, and said
she will miss most the
annual Christmas party
for the sight-impaired.

BOCC's decision to
extend the impact fee
moratorium to July 31,
2011, goes beyond Krys-
tals. He said he will now
certainly mention Polk
County to current and
potential clients.
Allea Newbold, the
managing director with
True Partners Consulting
of Tampa, praised the
BOCC for recognizing the
need to prolong the im-
pact fee moratorium. She
said the vote was already
yielding results.
"I have several clients
looking at Polk County,"
she said.
That was good for Polk
County, because prior
to the vote, those clients
had expressed concerns
over the impact fees.
"We've been having
discussions that the fees
were too high, and that
six months was not suf-
ficient," said Newbold.
The Polk County fees,
according to Commis-
sioner Melony Bell prior
to the vote and based
upon a comparison she
had conducted, were out


of line with neighboring
counties.
Newbold added she
had clients who were
now.in the beginning
stages of the permit pro-
cess. Those clients, she
said, were commercial,
not industrial.
She also lauded the
county commission for
its foresight and being
ahead of the curve.
"I think you'll see more
and more counties come
on board," she said.
One of those counties,
however, might not be

Polk County in the up-

instead is a founding
member of the Com-
mittee for the Advance-
ment of Poinciana, also
known as CAP Osceola
County has an impact
fee as high if not higher
than Polk County. In ad-
dition, there is a concur-
rency fee for District 3 in
Osceola County; much
of District 3 includes
Poinciana. Goldmacher
termed this concurrency
fee a second impact fee.
The lengthier impact


fee moratorium Polk
County commissioners
approved is going to be a
boon, he said. He called
it a "first good step." He
firmly believes that the
moratorium extension is
going to attract busi-
nesses that offer good
paying jobs to the Polk
County side of Poinciana.
In turn, that will attract
people to move to Poin-
ciana also to the Polk
County side because
it will offer an alterna-
tive to commuting to.

"This is something
that is really going to
help Polk County," said
Goldmacher. "I applaud
the commissioners, I ap-
plaud their vote."

Whether there has
been an uptick in the
number of applica-
tions filed (referred to
as "pulled), no figures

ter, Sharla, wanted to get

nity, and meet people

CSX terminal faces contra(


By STEVE STEINER and KATHY
LEIGH BERKOWITZ
STAFF WrrITRS

While the fate of the
proposed CSX terminal
in Winter Haven is yet
to be determined the
current contract for its
construction expires Dec.
31 and CSX is seeking an
extension to June 2013 -
its potential impact upon
Bartow and Lake Wales
is certain, both positive
and negative.
First and foremost on
the minds of elected city
officials in both commu-
nities is one thing.
"I think the biggest ef-
fect on Lake Wales is just
the economic the jobs
that it's going to provide,
the economic stability
it's going to give to Lake
Wales," said Lake Wales
City Commissioner Mike
Carter.


He was joined in that
sentiment by fellow
Commissioner John Paul
Rogers.
"If CSX does build,
it's certainly going to
affect us economically,
it's going to affect jobs,
it's going to affect us in
transportation, so there's
a lot of far reaching
things," said Rogers. "I
don't know all the ramifi-
cations of it, but any time
you talk about bringing
jobs to an area, it sounds
positive to me."
According to Bartow
City Commissioner Pat
Huff, in most likelihood,
these will be high-paying
jobs. He also saw an-
other positive aspect to
the projected terminal:
its proximity to the Polk
State College Advanced
Technology Center at
Clear Springs campus
being constructed east of


Bartow and just north of
State Road 60.
The focus of the cam-
pus will be to address
critical industry needs
through high-skill train-
ing that incorporates the
state-of-the-art technol-
ogy, training tools and
educational support ser-
vices. One of the colleges
will be the Supply Chain
Management Institute.
Being near the Polk
State College Bartow
campus it will be a boon
to students studying
logistics, Huff said, as the
proposed CSX terminal
is to be that of an inland
distribution center.
However, that as-
pect might prove to be
a drawback to roads
and highways running
through Bartow, said
Huff.
"If it is constructed,
there would be an ad-


ditional (estimated)
700 semi-tractor trailer
trucks per day," he said.
In actuality, the num-
ber of trucks would be
greater, according to
Benjamin Dunn, long-
range planning direc-
tor with Polk County
Transportation Planning
Organization. As the lead
transportation planning
agency Tor the county,
TPO develops transpor-
tation plans and pro-
grams for Polk County as
mandated by federal and
state legislation, such as
road projects.
Dunn cited a study by
the Division of Regional
Impact titled the Evans-
ville Western Railway Inc.
Terminal Facility. How-
ever, instead of vehicles,
the study used what it
projected will be the av-
erage number of trips.

Chanukah parties held throughout Polk


By STEVE STEINER
STAFF WRITER
Chanukah ended
Wednesday but Polk
County had parties
to mark the holiday.
Held Sunday, Dec. 5, at
Chabad Lubavitch of
Polk County and Temple
Emanuel both had
parties. There was one
Saturday at Temple Beth
Shalom in Winter Haven.
Chanukah, known as
the Festival of Lights,
is a minor holiday in
Judaism, and lasts eight
nights. It celebrates the
miracle God caused to
take place when the
Maccabees led the Jew-
ish people to victory
over the Syrian invaders
in 186 BC. Chanukah
also commemorates the
miracle of causing one
day's supply of oil for the
Menorah to last for eight
days as the Temple was
rededicated.


Jonah Meyers, 5, and his friend, Manny Barickman, 6, show off the paddleboards shaped as
dreidels they received Sunday, Dec. 5, at the Chanukah celebration at Temple Emanuel in Lake-
land.


Even Barney, a hearing ear guide dog, was into the festivities
as Chabad of Polk County, a newly-established Orthodox Jewish
community, held its first Chanukah party.


Rabbi Moshe Lazaros, who heads Chabad Lubavitch of Polk
County, chats with those who came to the Chanukah party
Sunday, Dec. 5. The framed portrait is the late Menachem
Mendel Schneerson, known as the Lubavitcher Rebbe. He was
a prominent Hasidic rabbi who was the seventh and last Rebbe
(Hasidic leader) of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement.

Gov.-elect Scott pleased with rail money


Governor-elect Rick Scott is pleased
with the federal government's commit-
ment of $342 million more to Florida's
planned high-speed rail line between
Tampa and Orlando.
But the Republican indicated he's still
not committed to it in a statement re-
leased Thursday by his transition office
in Fort Lauderdale.
The latest allocation would give
Florida nearly all of the $2.6 billion
needed to build the route.
U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Orlando, said


it should be enough to ensure the train,
which was added to the state constitu-
tion in 2000 but removed in 2004, is
actually built.
The high-speed line will have one of
its five stops in Lakeland. One main site
being considered is near the planned
Polytechnic campus of the University
of South Florida.
That is near Interstate 4 and the
eastern portion of the Polk Parkway.
Another is between Mall Hill Road and
1-4 to the east of Kathleen Road. A third


is near Clark Road by the Polk and Hill-
sborough county line.
Construction is planned in 2012 with
it opening in 2015.
The Obama administration took S1.2
billion in high-speed rail money away
from Ohio and Wisconsin and awarded
it to 12 other states, Transportation
Secretary Ray LaHood said.
States gaining the most money in-
clude California, S624 million; Florida,
S342 million; Washington, S161 million;
and Illinois, $42 million. Other states


receiving lesser amounts include New
