STAFF WRITER
Sometimes the best
things in life are worth wait-
ing for.
Bartow commissioners
unanimously voted to fund
a new park and gateway at
the Polk Street and State
Road 60 underpass at Mon-
day's meeting.
Concrete will cover
much of the "Polk Street
Gateway" as residents will
get a chance to beat the
dust and mud to celebrate
Juneteenth celebrations in
a park-like setting. Visitors
also will receive a history
lesson at the gateway first
planned five years ago.
Money was a sticking

point. Originally planners
hoped to plump $500,000
- primarily through grant
funding but grant fund-
ing was not available.
Commissioners recently
voted to spend $150,000
of Community Redevelop-
ment Agency funds for the
gateway after a commit-
tee of a dozen members
recently worked to iron out
the details.
Commissioner Leo Long-

Manager George Long, city
staffers, the consultant and
committee members.
"I think I'm going to be

Downtown design standards almost ready


...- .- "-.. ..*' ByJEFF ROSLOW

David Brewer, a realtor with Brewer, Sahm &
Webb, Inc., said Main Street Bartow, Inc., and
the city have to look 50 years into the future
and define what the city and community
want.


EDITOR
Bartowans want the town to main-
tain an old-style look to give it vibrance
to attract people and increase the value
of its storefronts downtown.
That is the result of a one-year study
Main Street Bartow has come up with.
And, since starting this study last
March it is almost ready to turn over
a document to the Bartow City Com-
mission that will enact ordinances of
design standards.
"Bartow has to define a vision of how
it wants it to be," said Tara Salmieri,
a senior associate with AECOM, who
headed up the study.
David Brewer told the 22 people who
attended the Downtown Bartow Design
Standard Framework meeting Tuesday
that in order to get that vibrance and
attract people downtown the city has to
have "a definition. It has to state what
we're looking for.
"It comes back to increasing values


of the downtown area. We have to think
50 years in the future, not five," he said.
The area that was studied since Main
Street Bartow took over this project
from the Community Redevelopment
Agency six years ago is bounded by
Van Fleet Drive and Second Street and
surrounds the downtown Bartow area.'
They had four public meetings, studied
signs, sidewalks, landscaping, sand-
wich boards and walked around a lot
and talked to lots of people in the last
year.
But one of the biggest problems
they've run into' is that Bartow is the
county seat, and while there is a real
1920s look to it there are more modern
buildings that take away from that.
"Look at Lakeland. The downtown
core lost a lot of that 1950s and 1960s
look. Bartow didn't. It has a 1920s look.
You can put new buildings in that
look that way or one that screams out
(because it looks more modern)," said

Longworth unopposed for commission


By BILL RETTEW JR.
STAFF WRITER
Incumbent Leo Long-
worth is running unop-
posed and will likely tack
another three-year term
onto his 16-year stint as
city commissioner.
The election for the
Bartow City Commission
is April 5.
Longworth chose to
talk first about finances
when asked about his
agenda as a commis-


sioner.
"I want to continue to
help guide the city so we
can achieve financial re-
covery," said Longworth.
"We should continue to
work to see that quality
service is provided to
customers and citizens at
the best cost."
Commissioners con-
tinue to fine tune the
city's strategic plan.
"It give us a clear direc-
tion for the way we want
to go," said Longworth.


The 61-year old music
lover is a State Farm
insurance agent.
"I will continue to
maintain open commu-
nications with the citi-
zens and be responsive
to their concerns, which
I believe I have always
done," said the golfer
and South Carolina State
University business
administration graduate.
"I want to continue to do
what I'm able to insure
that the make up of our


boards continues to
reflect the demographics
of our communityy"
Longworth talked
about his role as an
elected representative.
"I've got to speak
from the heart, but I re-
ally don't deserve to be
a representative of the
people," he said. "It's not
about me, it's about serv-
ing God and serving the
people.
"It's what God wants
me to do."


The three-time mayor
said that while he is but
one of five commission-
ers, the current board
"works well together.
"I'm a voice for all the
people," said Longworth.
"Particularly for those
who are not able to rep-
resent themselves.
"If I can touch some-
body's life or help
someone in a positive
way then my serving the
city would have not been
in vain."


Lewis seeks second term as commissioner


By BILL RETTEW JR.
STAFF WRITER

Mayor Wayne Lewis is
running for re-election
based on his record dur-
ing a three-year term as
,commissioner.
Lewis was a vocal critic
of red light cameras,
voted for a controversial
decision to jump ship
from Progress Energy as
the city's electricity pro-
vider and was on the los-
ing side when commis-
sioners voted to charge a
fire assessment.


The married 53-year-
old father of two children
is challenged by busi-
nessman John Fus in the
Bartow City Commission
election scheduled April
5.
Lewis is also proud
of his role assisting the
Chamber of Commerce,
city government workers,
Community Redevelop-
ment Agency and Main
Street Bartow to work as
a team.
"All together, we get
along," said Lewis.
"That's why things work


so well.
"We don't duplicate."
Lewis is a former key-
board player for country
music superstar Reba
McEntire. He uses his
experience as a sound
technician at dozens of
city events.
"I'm all about anything
to bring people down-
town," said Lewis. "I'm
hands-on.
"I'm there."
Like fellow commis-
sioner and former mayor
Adrian Jackson, Lewis fa-
vors selecting fresh faces


for board and committee
positions.
"Different folks with
different ideas bring a
fresh perspective," said
Lewis. "They can bring
a whole new life into
something."
Lewis was born in
Bartow and is the self-
employed owner of CWL
Services, a commercial
facilities maintenance
company. -
Lewis favored a pay
study for city employees.
"We still don't know
where our employees


stand in relation to other
municipalities," said
Lewis.
The candidate is a
proponent of lifelong
learning.
"I'd like to see our
leaders department
heads get some ongo-
ing leadership training,"
said Lewis. "In today's
work environment and
economy a lot of things
have changed.
"We don't do it like we
did in the '50s."


Fus runs for Bartow City Commission


By BILL RETTEW JR.
STAFF WRITER
Telecommunications
systems designer John
Fus became more inter-
ested in local govern-
ment during an ongoing
fight to limit changes at
Cedar Trail Landfill.
Fus' experience as
a businessman who
battled to limit the type
of refuse collected at the
landfill which abuts his
property led him to say
that he's well prepared to


make the tough deci-
sions as one of five city
commissioners.
Fus, 55, is running on
the April 5 ballot for a
three-year term against
incumbent commis-
sioner and Mayor Wayne
Lewis.
"I was inspired by the
landfill issue at Cedar
Trail," said Fus, "arid
I don't think the city
handled it properly."
Fus said he brings to
the table management


experience and under-
standing of budgeting,
a role hiring and firing
and an ability to handle
people.
The upstate NewYork
native and Florida resi-
dent since 2004 is mar-
ried with four children.
"The city is nothing
more than a business
with income, expen-
ditures and people to
manage," said Fus. "And
I hear from some people
that the city isn't run


properly and wastes
money."
Fus referred to himself
as a "fiscal conservative."
Considering the cur-
rent economy, Fus said
that government needs
to manage and "watch
closely" the public work-
force and to judge which
employees are truly
needed.
"But that doesn't mean
I'm advocating firing
people; they're a resource
that needs to be used as


efficiently as possible,"
said Fus.
He earned an electri-
cal engineering degree
from Clarkson University
in New York state. He
enjoys performing home
improvements.
The candidate wants to
closely examine the city
budget.
"With my manage-
ment background, I'll
find whether to make
improvements and cut
costs," he said.

DIhool chief has RIALtude toward cuts




School chief has right attitude toward cuts


Thirty-four million dollars.
One more time.
Thirty-four million dollars.
Even in a world where people
toss around figures in the tril-
lions, $34 million is a whole lot of
money.
That's the shortfall Polk County
School Superintendent Sherrie
Nickell says the school district
will be facing. Nickell explained
the challenge during a board
retreat last week.
Nickell was frank with her
board. She explained that cuts
were unavoidable.
"We are going to have cuts. It's
unavoidable," she said.
She laid out a framework for
deciding how to make the antici-
pated cuts: "Where is the least
impact on students and start
from there," she told the board.


I OUR VIEWPOINT

We like that philosophy and ap-
plaud something else we learned
from the meeting.
Nickell said that about $10 mil-
lion of the cuts would come from
the administration, leaving $24
million to be found elsewhere.
Finding the remaining $24
million will be tough to find and
it will certainly involve teachers
and instructional personnel.
We sincerely hope that doesn't
happen but we are encouraged
by Nickell's attitude toward
teachers and the fact that the
county's teachers union, the Polk
Education Association, attended
the retreat and reported that the
administration is listening to
teachers and their needs.


That's a good sign.
On the national scene, teachers
are being vilified as overpaid and
unwilling to help with the na-
tion's fiscal problems.
We know many teachers in
Polk County personally and will
tell you, that although they are
not coal miners, they are, more
often than not, hard-working,
dedicated public servants who
care about their students, their
schools and their communities.
However, as with any large en-
terprise that has to look at severe
budget cuts, payroll is usually the
largest expense and that is cer-
tainly the case with our county's
school district.
We have confidence that Nick-
ell cares about the students more
than any other part of the school
district.


We have seen her try to con-
vince bright young people to go
into the teaching profession.
She cares about teachers, too.
The district will try to imple-
ment the cuts around as many
non-instructional personnel as
possible.
For example, when-faced with
a choice between a classroom
teacher and a guidance counsel-
or, the district would most likely
lay off a counselor.
That would be unfortunate but
affect the quality of education
least.
We don't look forward to the
coming budget woes, but we do
think our school leaders, based
on comments made at the recent
retreat, are poised to make the
cuts with our students in mind.


'Know it when I see it'


"I know it when I see
it." Justice Potter Stew-
art, 1964, speaking of the
futility of trying to define
pornography.
"I don't know art, but
I know what I like." -
Thousands, perhaps
millions, of citizens who.
.. well... don't know art,
but know what they like.
"Congress shall make
no law respecting an es-.
tablishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exer-
cise thereof; or abridging
the freedom of speech, or
of the press; or the right
of the people peaceably
to assemble, and to peti-
tion the Government for
a redress of grievances."
- Article I of the Bill of
Rights.

When reference is
made to the First Amend-
ment, we in the press
automatically think of it
as "our amendment."
But it actually em-
braces a lot of rights that
are important to a lot of'
people.

As much as some Con-
stitutional scholars and
Supreme Court justices -
and journalists would
like it to be otherwise,
those freedoms have not
been held to be absolute.
Yes, nude dancing has
been held to be a protect-
ed Constitutional right to

THINKING .
OUT LOUD .



S.L Frisbie

arguably a stretch of what
the Founding Fathers had
in mind.
And tax subsidies paid
to an artist for a photo of
a Crucifix in a vial of his
own urine, and the han-
dle of a bullwhip inserted
where bullwhip handles
were never meant to go,
have been upheld.
But the courts also have
held that "fighting words"
do not enjoy absolute
protection, and such a
thing as "unprotected
speech" does, in fact,
exist.
And in the Supreme
Court's never-ending ef-
fort to codify the defini-
tion which eluded Justice
Stewart, phrases like
"community standards"-
and "patently offensive"
and "average person" are
used.

It is against that
background that I take
exception to the Supreme
Court's finding last week
protecting demonstrators
who hold signs at military
funerals reading "Thank
God for Dead Soldiers"
and declaring that the


deaths of members of
America's armed forces
are the Almighty's pun-
ishment for a national
trend toward accepting
homosexuality.
That these positions
are advanced by a small
church in Topeka, Kan., in
my opinion, gives them
no more legitimacy than
if they were embraced
by the American Nazi
Party. I'm not sure which
version of the Bible they
are using in Topeka these
days, but I have not run
across Scriptural support
for their position.
Even in that context,
the question is not
whether they are entitled
to hold and publicly
espouse that position,
but whether they have
the right to disrupt the
solemnity of military
funerals in the process.
There are utterances
that would draw little at-
tention if made at a mud
rasslin' match (this is only
surmise on my part, you
understand) that would
render the utterer imme-
diately arrested if shouted
from the spectators' gal-
lery in Congress.

, By my definition,
demonstrations by the
Topekan faithful at mili-
tary funerals constitute
"fighting words" that are

Florida lawmakers help


muddy waters around us


A few years ago, resi-
dents along the eastern
St. Lucie River in Florida
watched in disgust as the
waterway turned green
with a foul slime that
wouldn't go away.
Health officials warned
people to stay away from
the river. Birds and fish
got sick. Property values
dived to new lows, while
politicians holding jarfuls
of crud grimaced for the
TV cameras and vowed to
take action.
The mystery ooze
was caused by nutri-
ents dumped into Lake
Okeechobee from farms,
groves and ranchlands,
churned by' hurricanes
and then pumped out by
state water managers at
the rate of 26,000 gallons
per second.
It was a suffocating act
of pollution that could
easily happen again,
because the polluters still
steer water policy, and
the politicians.
U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney,
a Republican from
Tequesta, Fla., recently
tacked a rider on the
federal budget package
that would prohibit the
Enviromnental Protection
Agency from enacting
tighter restrictions on the
amount of phosphorous
and nitrogen that may
be flushed into Florida's
public waters.
The EPArules, devised
in conjunction with the
state's Department of En-
vironmental Protection,
have been the subject of
several public hearings.
Public comments were
10-to-1 in favor of the
regulations.
Critics say compliance
would be too expensive
for farms, small busi-
ness and public utilities.
State agriculture officials
,estimated a potential loss
of 14,000 jobs, a sky-is-
falling prediction that will

never come to pass.
Rooney's lead role in
trying to block the pollu-
tion guidelines is interest-
ing because he suppos-
edly represents all those
folks along the St. Lucie
who got slimedl back in'
2005.
In a lame op-ed column
defending his position,
the congressman wrote
that the new EPA rules
"could cost our state's
economy about $2 bil-
lion, and would double
the, average family's water
bill."
It's a preposterous
statement, pure fiction,
but the aim isn't to inform
people. The aim is to
scare them, The script
(and dire predictions)
come from lobbyists for
Big Agriculture, mu-
nicipalities and corporate
interests who freely use *
Florida's lakes, bays and
rivers as a latrine.
Rooney doesn't use the
word "polluters." He calls
them "job creators."
In the coming days,
Sen. Marco Rubio is
expected to amend the
Senate budget resolution
with a similar rider that
would bar the EPA from
imposing the new water
regulations in Florida.
Whether the measure
survives or not remains to
be seen.
The main objection
to the rules is, naturally,
that they're too strict.
The revised limits on
phosphorus and nitrogen
which are found in sew-
age, fertilizer runoff and


animal manure were set
after state and federal sci-
entists took about 13,000
water samples at 2,200
locations.
Rooney and others have
been pressing for a third-
party scientific review of
the approved levels, but
environmental groups say
the data is clear and that
the time for delay is over.
Toxic algae blooms
from nutrient pollution
have endangered public
beaches, waterways and
drinking supplies. Last
summer it was a 100-mile
stretch of the St. Johns
River that turned bright
green, at an untold cost to
the boating and sportfish-
ing industries.
In recent years, poi-
soned runoff has also
been blamed for caustic
red tide outbreaks that
have killed thousands
of fish' and sent tourists
packing (and coughing)
along Florida's southwest
coast.
It's an absolute fact that
some farms and ranches
will have to spend serious
money to clean up their
act. It's also an absolute
fact that new pollution
rules are essential for
Florida's economic future.
In a state that relies so
heavily on tourism and
outdoor recreation, dirty
water is major job killer.
This was painfully evident
throughout the Panhan-
dle after the BP oil spill,
but memories are very
short in Washington.
While some agricultural
operations in Florida
have taken important
steps to reduce harmful
runoff, others haven't.
More destructive algae
blooms are a certainty.
And nothing says "Wel-
come to Florida!" like aer-
ial video of a scum-filled
river or a beach plastered

Juan Francisco Garcia


Betty Wilson Sutermeis-
ter, 91, of Bethesda, Md.,
passed away on Tuesday,
March 1, 2011, at Subur-
ban Hospital in Bethesda
from respiratory failure.
She often visited Bar-
tow with her daughter,
Kim Bentley.
She was born on March
12, 1919, in New York City,
to Margaret Wilson and
Dr. Edwin B. Wilson, Sr.
She grew up in Mount
Vernon, N.Y., and gradu-
ated from Memorial High

in 1940 with a double ma-
jor in English and Latin.
She was a staff aide in
the American Red Cross
from 1942-1945, serv-
ing at Camp Edwards in
Cape Cod. Her duty was
to meet hospital ships at
the port of Boston which
were returning from
Europe with wounded
servicemen, then accom-
pany the patients to their
hospitals.
After the war, Mrs. Su-
termeister worked in New
York City. She had met
her future husband, Oscar
Sutermeister, while she
was attending Bryn Mawr
College, from which
their two daughters later
graduated.


Gary "Bonze" Kennedy,
52, of Bartow, passed

2011, at Lakeland Region-
al from respiratory failure.
A native of Middletown,
Ohio, he moved to Bartow
10 years ago and was a
welder with the Layne
Christensen Company of
Lakeland.
Mr. Kennedy especially
enjoyed blues music and
loved riding his Harley
Davidson Motorcycle. He
was "a loving husband,
father, grandfather, friend
and coach," a family
member said.
He was preceded in
death by a brother, Ricky
Daryl Kennedy, and his

You never said I'm leaving, you
never said, goodbye, you were
gone before we knew it and only
God knows why. A million times
we've needed you, a million times
we've cried. If love alone could
have saved you, you never would
have died. In life we loved you
dearly, In death welove you still.
In our hearts you hold i place
that no one else can ever fill. It
broke our hearts to lose you, but
you didn't go alone for part of us
went with you the day God took
you home.

To the most courageous person
we know who gave such uncon-
ditional love everywhere you
went and touched so many lives.
Until we meet again, We love you
forever and always, Mom, Dad,
Trevor, Sara, Destiny and your
friends at Action and Sunrise.

Bartow blooms with art


Lovely African violets earned a first place ribbon for P.J. Black in the Bartow Garden Club Flower Show, held in
Community Southern Bank, in conjunction with the Bloomin' Arts Festival.


Sarah Jane Mack was quite stylish in her sun visor. She was visiting
the Bloomin'Arts Festival with Ray Mack and his wife, who are vaca-
tioning in Auburndale. Saturday's sunny weather was quite different
from what they left behind in Ontario.


Delightful designs featuring
ladybugs, flowers, stars, and
quotes were showcased on
old school desks and buckets
in Bartow artist Evie Weiss'
display at Bloomin'Arts.

Painter Ned Waters (right) of Bartow chatted with friends Dennis Thibodeaux (center) and Johnny Guest in front of his exhibit.
Waters began painting again two years ago, his wife said, after not painting for about 20 years. Waters also makes and sells
custom-made cow whips, and is president of the Polk County Cattlemen's Assn.


Above and below visitors to the Polk County Historical Museum
was the pattern of the old courthouse rotunda's tile floor,
repeated in a quilt made several years ago. Bartow quilters
showed their art upstairs in the 1926 courtroom.


Spanish moss draped some of the paintings in Ned Waters'display at Bloomin' Arts, including
this one of a Florida cowboy chasing a stray.

the citizens and the city
worked together on."
This is the first of six
city entrance ways or city
gateways Long hopes to
spruce up.
"It's not a stand-alone
project," said Long. "We


tried to achieve some-
thing that could be used
as a model and replicat-
ed elsewhere."
Kevin Aust of AECOM
worked on the design
plans for the two-acre
site located half on city
arid half on Florida De-


apartment of Transporta-
tion land.
The city will perform
most of the work in-
house except for a S7,500
column and construc-
tion of a chain link fence.
The column will sit on
the west side of Polk


Street and within view of
incoming motorists.
The column will
contain a historical
medallion that reads,
"Historical Bartow Over
the Branch."
A marker with text
and titled, "Historic West


Bartow aka "Over the
Branch" C. 1851" is also
included in the plans.
A seating area will give
visitors a chance to read
the marker's text written
by committee member
Clifton Lewis. A second
free-standing historic


marker similar to the one
located at the L.B. Brown
House is planned as
financing becomes avail-
able.
Work should start
almost immediately,with
Long projecting a June
completion date.

Branch.'
'As a result of the isola-
tion, 'Over the Branch'
became a self-contained
community with homes,


churches, a school,
various businesses, social
and civic clubs.
"First Providence M.B.
Church was started here
in 1856. It is the oldest


black church in Polk
County, and one of the
oldest in South Florida.
Residents of 'Over the
Branch' provided funds
for the first school for


black children at the
church.
"During the 1880s, a
white developer by the
name of William E Britt
subdivided a section of


'Over the Branch' and
thereafter the commu-
nity was officially called
'Brittsville.' Notwith-
standing the official
name of Brittsville, the


local residents continued
to refer to their commu-
nity as 'Over the Branch.'
"Welcome to 'Over the
Branch,' a'proud Bartow
neighborhood."


CRISIS: Looming over dumping


FROM PAGE 1A
walks, crawls, swims or
flies capable of carry-
ing bacteria.and viruses
producing diseases,
and included mam-
mals, birds, insects and
fish that cross property
lines." Properly treated
sewer sludge is not sup-
posed to attract vectors,
he said, and then he
showed several photos
in which turkey buzzards
are grazing immediately
following a dumping,
because it contains raw
fat. He also showed feral


hogs, wild turkeys and
even cattle. The DEP,
he said, insisted there
was not a problem, but
when confronted with
evidence to the contrary,
went to the municipality
at fault and "solved the
problem." It took about
two weeks.
Dummett continued
presenting one fact after
another, from birds wad-
ing on the land and then
coming onto his prop-
erty, and flies. A photo he
showed was one of his
cattle, its head covered
with flies.


I never had a fly prob-
lem until they started
sludge dumping near my
property," he said. "Now
I cannot keep the flies
off my animals, no mat-
ter if I spray them, dust
them, we have them."
In addition to that, the
cattle being raised on the
neighboring ranch are
allowed to graze on the
sludge property.
So it continued, with
further examples. A
report in 2004 stated the
neighbors should be af-
forded the same protec-
tion as those who work


on the field where the
sludge is dumped. None
of that has occurred. At
his conclusion, he said
there are ways to elimi-
nate the Class B solids,
something communities
across the U.S., have .
done, which he gave ex-
amples, but that was not
only what he and others
sought. There is a loom-
ing crisis and he asked
the BOCC for an "out
and out ban on Class
B biosolids," Dummett
concluded.
It was a somber re-
sponse from BOCC chair-


man Edwin V. Smith.
"We will certainly take
your comments to heart
and consider it and have
some work done on it,"
said Smith.
Dummett would not
be the only person to
speak on the topic. Two
Mulberry residents, Na-
than Lewis and Clayton
Bowen, both who live
in the Willow Oaks area,
spoke of similar dump-
ing taking place in the
community that is being
permitted by an absentee
landowner.
After Lewis finished


speaking, Commissioner
Bob English weighed in.
He said he wanted to
look into putting halt to
dumping in Polk County
drew a loud round of ap-
plause. ;
After Bowen begged
BOCC members to per-
sonally visit these sites,
Commissioner Melony
Bell said she agreed with
English, that the issue
needed to be immediate-
ly studied and find out
what needed to be done
to police the current
practice.


DESIGN: Standards almost ready


FROM PAGE 1A
Terry Hunter.
. The Polk County His-
torical Museum is the old
courthouse. The newer
courthouse is much
more modern looking.
"That's going to be a
challenge," Salmieri said
about keeping an older-
looking style in a county
seat. "But once zoning
laws are in place..."
Hunter, from Pick-
ett, Hunter Associates


Architects PA and an
eight-year CRA member,
said, "There isn't a strong
design theme but we
need to maintain a char-
acterization and keep it.
We can't do that with a
McDonald's."
But most everyone
agreed the downtown
area has a unique feel to
it and everyone present,
from business people
to city officials, want to
keep that feel. Salmieri
said the downtown area


is great and this design
document helps, but in
order to give downtown
vibrancy there has to be
a juggling process and
the community has to
get involved.
"We try to engage the
business owners and
we've turned away six
bail bondsmen," Karen
Guffey said, adding that
some have offered to pay
double the rent that was
being asked to be located
on Main Street. "It takes


the effort of the people
in town to say what they
want, but (the building
owners) have to pay their
rent."
And, another point to.
attract people downtown
is to let people know that
there is a downtown.
"I haven't been in Bar-
tow too long and I don't
liye in Bartow but I come
here two or three times a
day," said Big Belly Burg-
ers owner Rick Miller.
"There is nothing that


tells you about down-
town when you come in
to this community and
, some people would just
stay on (State Road) 60
and drive through town."
Bartow City Manager
George Long echoed that
thought. "You can't have
vibrancy without the
traffic," he said.
The city commission
will have some strug-
gling and juggling to do
to make ordinances that
can keep Bartow in the


fashion they want, but
people should realize
there is an active effort
here, those attending
agreed.
"Ten years ago Bartow
was in a pit and we're
reducing the number of
bail bondsmen, but this
is a county seat," said
CRA Director Jim Duane.
"I agree we have to look
at the businesses and
see what they want, but
there's good news on the
horizon."

FRISBIE: 'Know it when I see it'


FROM PAGE 4A
"patently offensive" to
the "average person"
and violate "community
standards."
That the terms used
do not include the word
- whether in its verb or
gerund form without
which many soldiers are
unable to complete a de-


clarative sentence should-
not protect those who
celebrate the death of
America's armed forces
at their funerals.
Like Justice Stewart, I
may not be able to define
obscenity, but I know it
when I see it.
Such graveside con-
duct is obscene.


(S. L. Frisbie is re-
tired. He would like to
see veterans'organiza-
tions and other patriotic
groups exercise their right
"peacefully to assemble"
fo form a human barrier
between the protesters
and the bereaved at mili-
tary funerals.)


HIAASEN: Florida lawmakers help


FROM PAGE 4A
with rotting fish.
Meanwhile, Rooney
says he's a friend of the
environment and a big
fan of clean water. He
says he favors a "reason-
able compromise" on
nutrient pollution, which
would be fine if the con-
cept of "reasonable" was
based on science and not
big-money politics.


Rooney doesn't sound
much like a serious
compromiser when he
blasts the EPA for acting
"tyrannically and dictato-
rially." For the record, the
modern Clean Water Act
has been on the books
since he was in diapers.
Before anything else
happens, the congress-
man wants the feds to
calculate the potential
impact of new pollution


rules on the polluters.
If only he was as con-
cerned about the impact
of future slime torrents
on the folks who live
along the St. Lucie.

Annual PRECO meeting to feature parachute team


At the 71st annual
membership meeting of
the Peace River Electric
Cooperative Inc., not
only will there be hot
dogs, ice cream and
snow cones but there
will be people falling
from the sky with colors
and parachutes.
The party will take
place at PRECO Park in
Wauchula and begins
at 11 a.m. for members
and their families, but
anyone nearby can
probably see what's go-
ing on overhead.
The U.S. Special
Operations Command
Parachute Demonstra-
tion Team, of MacDill
Air Force Base, Tampa,
is scheduled to perform
a free fall parachute
demonstration during
the meeting, which will
honor those serving in
the military.
Also planned are a


caricature artist; live
animals, such as bears,
alligators, and snakes;
community service in-
formation booths; and
more. Live entertain-
ment will be provided
by local singing groups.
For the younger set,
pony rides, a bounce
house, an inflatable
slide, and a climbing
wall will be offered.,
The "Salute to the
Armed Services" theme
will be celebrated
throughout the day, in-
cluding a Wall of Honor
featuring military
photos and information
submitted by PRECO's
member-owners.
Peace River Electric,
also known as PRECO,
was formed in 1940 and
provides electricity to
nearly 35,000 services
in a 10-county area of
Central Florida.

Special Operations Command Parachute Demonstration Team, known as the Para-Commandos, are scheduled to perform a free fall

USF Poly explores Irish alliance


Though nothing formal
was established, a pro-
fessor from a university
in Dublin and one from
University of South Flor-
ida Polytechnic met last
week and they may form
a partnership between
the schools.
"The plan will be some
kind of partnership,"
Tom Hagerty, a spokes-
man for Polytech, said.
"The discussion will be
ongoing, but it's prema-
ture to say anything."
Shane Ward, a pro-
fessor of biosystems
engineering and head
of the School of Agricul-
ture, Food Science and


Veterinary Medicine at
University College Dub-
lin, met with Dean J.P.
Emond, assistant deans
Joe McCann and Sencer
Yeralan, and faculty and
staff from USFP's Col-
lege of Technology and
Innovation.
They explored re-
search, commercial proj-
ects, undergraduate and
graduate programs in
person and online, and
a trans-Atlantic research
alliance.
"We see a trans-At-
lantic alliance between
UCD and USF Poly as an
important mechanism
to open up new oppor-


tunities, and capitalize
on potential synergisms
between the two institu-
tions and economies.
Ireland relies on trade as
the engine of its econo-
my, which is one of the
most open economies in
the world," Ward said.
"A UCD-USF Poly
alliance is compatible
with Ireland's outward-
looking ethos and that of
UCD Biosystems Engi-
neering, which has had a
long tradition of interac-
tion with colleagues in
the USA. We look forward
to a prosperous future
based around collabora-
tion and mutual trust."

roof on the building, and
a new, electronic climate
control system inside to
protect the artworks.
Under his leadership,
the museum received the
Central Florida Devel-
opment Council's Dick
Pope Award in 2008 and


the Downtown Lakeland

Polk County's E 9-1-1
training program fulfilled
all the state's require-
ments to become a certi-
fied program.
That means under the
rules of the Florida De-
partment of Health each
new telecommunicator
it hires must complete
232 training hours in the
first year of employment.
That includes in-service
classes, online study
programs and on-the-job
training with a certified
training officer.


Those calling 9-1-1 will.
riot notice a change in
service, organizers said.
"Certification assures
our citizens that trained
and certified operators
are handling their calls,"
said Patty Allison, Polk
County's 9-1-1 training
coordinator.
"It also helps ensure
that operators are pre-
pared to ask the appropri-
ate questions necessary
to dispatch assistance for
the calls they receive."

as'other proposed cuts to
the budget and benefits
of state employees. Polk
Education Association

Capoziella said there
have also been initiatives
proposed to erode the
collective action ability


of education unions. PEA
is the union representing
teachers and support per-
sonnel in Polk County.
SB 736, also called the
"Student Success Act,"
proposes changes to the
evaluation process of

tors. According to the
bills' summary, posted at

topsy and all investigative
results and findings will

in. May 2007 and charged



36 up foi
to use in measuring stu-
dent learning growth. Re-
quires school districts to

for each course offered in
the district." The bill also
provides requirements
for a performance salary
schedule, a grandfathered

ments, and supplements;

promotion of instruc-
tional personnel; and

Greer tops

nation at Husky Classic


Elijah Greer ran a na-
tion-leading time in the
800 meters at the Husky
Classic at the University
of Washington in Seattle
on Feb. 13 with a winning
time of 1.47.02, which
was also his personal
best.
He beat Cory Primm of
UCLA, who had a time of
1.47.31.
Greer was one of seven
athletes to earn an au-
tomatic berth qualifying
for the NCAA national
indoor meet which is
scheduled in College Sta-
tion, Texas this month.
The sophomore from
Lake Oswego, Ore.,
moved to No. 2 on the
all-time Oregon list, trail-
ing only Olympian An-


drew Wheating's 1.46.36
from a year ago.
On Feb. 25 the Uni-
versity of Oregon men's
distance medley relay
team clocked the No. 2
time in NCAA history at
the MPSF meet in Seattle
at the UW facility with a
time of 9.26.78.
The Ducks obliter-
ated the meet record of
9:29.71 set by California
in 2009, and qualified
automatically for the
NCAA Indoor Champion-
ships. It was the second-
fastest DMR ever run on
the college level, behind
only the collegiate record
of 9:25.77 run by Texas in
2008.
The men also hit the
NCAA Championship


automatic standard and
set a new school record.
Team members were
sophomore Mac Fleet,
freshman Mike Berry,
sophomore Greer and
junior Matthew Centrow-
itz. That broke the 2009
school record of 9:29.39
set by a pair of Olympi-
ans, Andrew Wheating
and Galen Rupp, and
Jordan McNamara and
Chad Barlow.
Greer ran the 800-leg
on the relay with a per-
sonal best of 1.46.3.
He is the son of former
Bartowan Marianne Har-
ley Greer, and grandson
of the late Dick and Dot
Harley of Bartow.

Lawmakers plan quick start sess


TALLAHASSEE (AP) -
The Florida Legislature
convenes Tuesday with
Republicans fresh off an
election that strength-
ened their control of
both chambers, and GOP
leaders have set early
floor votes on legislation
that's sure to please tea
party activists and busi-
ness interests.
Measures scheduled
for first-week roll calls
include a pair of pro-
posed state constitu-
tional amendments, one
to cap state spending
and another attempting
to thwart the national
health care overhaul.
Also on tap are bills
that would cut benefits
for unemployed workers
and require merit pay for
teachers while banning
tenure for new hires.
Demonstrations are-
planned in Tallahassee
and across the state by
opponents and support-
ers of those measures
as well as $5 billion in
spending cuts, layoffs
and reductions in salaries
and pension benefits for
public employees includ-
ing teachers that Repub-
lican Gov. Rick Scott has
included in his $65.9
billion budget proposal.
"This is real change,"
Senate President Mike
Haridopolos said at a
news conference Mon-
day. "The House and
Senate are much more
conservative.
Clearly we have a
much more conservative
governor. We're going to
be more ambitious with
our policy objectives. It's
going to be more contro-
versial."
Republicans are ex-
pected to agree on most
issues during the 60-day
session, but there's still
some room for discord
within their veto-proof
majorities 81-39 in the
House and 28-12 in the
Senate.
GOP lawmakers
already have signaled
opposition to some of
Scott's budget proposals,
including a 10 percent
reduction for public
schools.
Haridopolos of Mer-
ritt Island and House
Speaker Dean Cannon,
R-Winter Park, also have
expressed skepticism
over Scott's proposals to
cut corporate income


and school property
taxes. That's because the
state's facing a potential
budget shortfall of up
to $3.6 billion more
if lawmakers accept a
House proposal for a $1
billion reserve fund.
"That's a heavy lift giv-
en the fact that our first
and our primary objec-
tive is to pass a balanced
budget, cut spending
by $4.6 billion and don't
raise taxes," Cannon said
Monday. .. -
Republicans, though,
are expected to be united
on major roll calls this
week. They include Sen-
ate votes on the two con-
stitutional amendments,
which would go on the
November 2012 ballot.
One (SJR 2) would pro-
hibit any requirement for
people to buy insurance
coverage or pay financial
penalties for failing to do,
both key parts of Presi-
dent Barack Obama's
health care overhaul.
The Legislature passed
a similar amendment
last year, but the Florida
Supreme Court removed
it from the 2010 ballot
because its summary was
inaccurate and mislead-
ing.
Sponsors last year con-
ceded the measure could
not override federal law,
but they siw it as a way
for Floridians to voice
their opposition to the
health care overhaul.
Missouri voters approved
a similar proposal by a
wide margin.
The other proposed
amendment (SJR 958)
would cap state rev-
enues at their 2013-14
level with allowances for
population growth and
increases in the Consum-
er Price Index.
Sponsors say such a
"Taxpayer Bill of Rights"
is needed to protect
against excessive spend-
ing by the Legislature.
Critics say the proposed
cap uses a flawed for-
mula and would only
worsen Florida's dire
financial condition.
Amendments need a
three-fifths vote in both
chambers to get on the
ballot. That's 24 votes in
the 40-member Senate
and 72 in the 120-mem-
ber House, both well
within the GOP's majori-
ties.
The Senate also is set

to vote on the teacher
pay and tenure bill (SB
736). It's similar to one
that passed last year
amid widespread pro-
tests by teachers, stu-
dents and parents.
That bill (SB 6) was ve-
toed by then-Gov. Charlie
Crist, who subsequently
quit the Republican Party
to run unsuccessfully
for the U.S. Senate as an
independent.
The House this week is
set to vote on a bill (HB
7005) that's designed to
reduce unemployment
compensation taxes that
businesses pay and cut
benefits for jobless work-
ers. It would reduce the
benefit limit from 26 to
20 weeks.
If Florida's unemploy-
ment rate, now at 12
percent, should drop to
5 percent, then the limit
would drop to 12 weeks.
The bill also would re-
quire jobless workers to
undergo a skills review to
qualify for benefits.

STAFF WRITER
A lengthy agenda
before Polk County
Commissioners when
they convened for the
Tuesday, March 8, morn-
ing public session was
dispensed with in short
order and with minimal
discussion and unani-
mous votes. However, the
morning session was not
without fireworks.
As a rule, there is at
least one uniformed Polk
County Sheriff deputy at
all county commission
public sessions, inside
the chamber, while an-
other officer patrols the
lobby. That number was
doubled Tuesday. It was a
decision made by PCSO
Chief of Staff Steve Lester,
who said the additional
staffing was a precau-
tionary move but not
based solely on concerns
the session would be
disrupted by members of
any atheist organization.
"I will tell you that
based upon the pattern
so far by those protest-
ing, this was a possibil-
ity," Lester said. However

While no protest arose
during and following
the invocation, it later
became necessary for the
tw\o deputies to escort
leff Hancock from the
chamber. Hancock is one
of three people who fre-
quently appears at BOCC
meetings. His complaint
is usually directed at
Sheriff Grady Judd over
an incident in 2006 in
which his mother's ken-
nel business was raided
and animals removed.
Hancock consistently
demands Judd's removal.
When his three-minute
allot ment expired,
however, he refused to
cease speaking. Even
after several requests
from Commission Chm.
Edwin V. Smith, Hancock
continued. Smith then
instructed the sheriff
deputies to escort Han-
cock off county premises.
"I can remove myself,

Smith then tried to
explain the septic tank
issue was something the
state Legislature enacted,
not county commission-
ers, but Gore would hear
none of that.
"If you tell that to my

Gore, which prompted
another exchange.
"You're being abusive

"You're the one being

Smith gave Gore one

he asked whether this is
what the BOCC wanted

the BOCC from several

contrast to the first
person to speak, Bishop

county employees for
their prompt, profes-

responses to questions
and concerns he and
others throughout the

"It is said that behind

cluded Lawrence. "Be-

"Thank you, Bishop

Unions brace for tou


session


By LILLY ROCKWELL
NEWS SERVICE OF
FLORIDA
TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Legislature is
poised to pass bills that
tie teacher pay to test
scores, mandate that
public employees con-
tribute to their pensions
and health care, and
eliminate automatic pay-
roll deductions for union
fees. The one common
thread in all of these
proposals? Unions.
During a time when
unions are under at-
tack in a half-dozen
other states, the Florida
Legislature is considering
a wide range of propos-
als that impact union
members.
While organized labor
has so far protested
mildly, unions ratcheted
up their criticism on
Monday.
The teachers
union criticized the
Legislature s attempts
to stifle unions and
protesters showed up
at a Senate Community
Affairs Committee with
their mouths taped shut,
a nod to Senate Bill 830,
a bill that eliminates
the ability of unions
to deduct fees auto-
matically from a worker s
paycheck. It also pro-
hibits unions from using
worker dues to finance
political committees.
The Senate Commu-
nity Affairs Committee
-Aran out of tinie before al-
(luto ing public testimony
no[n the bill Monday.
SThe taxpayers in
kthe state of Florida are
basicallyy saying Lets
'get out of the business
Sof collecting dues for
union members, let the
unions do it themselves,
said Sen. John Thrasher,


R-St. Augustine, the bill s
sponsor. Why should we
be collecting anybody s
dues?
The decision to post-
pone consideration of
the bill angered mem-
bers of the Fraternal
Order of Police and other
unions. They sought out
reporters after the com-
mittee adjourned to vent
their frustration.
Mike Kelley, a Palm
Beach County-based po-
lice officer, said he drove
eight hours to protest the
bill, taking vacation time
to do so. He won t be
able to return next week.
Did you see how full
the gallery was? Did you
see how many people
came hundreds and
hundreds of miles to
come speak? Kelley said.
I took vacation to come
here and do this, my own
time.
Jeff McAdams, presi-
dent of the Gainesville
chapter of the Fraternal
Order of the Police said
whatever is deducted
from his paycheck is
his own money and
has nothing to do with
taxpayers. We need
to call it what it is, it
is union-busting, it is
union-busting 101 and
we are not going to stand
for it, McAdams said.
The proposal that was
shelved in the Senate
committee is just one
of several that target
unions.
Another proposal (HB
1023) would require
recertification of unions
with membership below
50 percent of the em-
ployees they represent.
Law enforcement and
firefighter unions are
exempted.
Besides the bills that
specifically target unions,


many of the Florida
Legislature s high-pri-
ority bills impact union
members, such as teach-
ers, firefighters, univer-
sity professors, and state
workers.
Many of these bills
are poised for a quick
passage. The educa-
tion reform bill that ties
teacher pay to test scores
was fast-tracked through
committees and is up
for debate in the Florida
Senate Wednesday.
The education reform
bill (SB 736) requires
school districts to set up
an evaluation system
that rates teachers. Half
of those evaluations
would be based on test
scores, and the bill allows
districts to permanently
put new hires on one-
year contracts instead of
the longer-term agree-
ments in place now.
Scott Whittle, a Tal-
lahassee-area teacher
who was at the Capitol
Monday to protest the
Senate bill that elimi-
nates payroll deduction
for union dues, suggest-
ed that the raft of bills
targeting them are all
payback for the failure of
last year s failed attempt
to tie teacher pay to test
scores.
This is retribution,
Whittle said. When asked
by reporters if SB 830
was political payback,
Thrasher scoffed at the
notion, saying he s happy
with this year s version
of the teacher merit pay
bill.
Some business lobby
groups, such as the Flor-
ida Chamber of Com-
merce, have suggested
that Florida should
brace for Wisconsin-style
protests. But unions say
that is unlikely to happen


because of state laws
that essentially prohibit
strikes by allowing fines
or the termination of
workers that participate
in them.
The Florida Education
Association, which repre-
sents teachers and other
public school employees,
says teachers who choose
to participate in rallies
or demonstrations do so
during evenings, week-
ends, or vacations. We
get the message that we
shouldn't be striking
and we are not going
to, said Ron Meyer, a
lobbyist whose client
is the Florida Educa-
tion Association. Don t
confuse that as rolling
over and accepting what
is happening to public
employees.
Florida AFL-CIO, a
statewide coalition of,
local labor unions that
organized the small pro-
test outside the Senate
committee, said workers
are being targeted by the
Republican-controlled
Legislature.
The amount of really
hard-hitting, far-reaching
policies, and the amount
of legislation that has
already passed through
the committee process
and is already waiting to
be debated on the House
floor and on the Senate
floor is unprecedented,
said AFL-CIO spokesman
Rich Templin. They are
going very rapidly.
Templin said previ-
ous attempts to weaken
unions didn' t get very
far.
Meanwhile, rallies are
planned for Tuesday in
Tallahassee and across
the state, designed to
distract from the first day
of the legislative session.
The Awake the State


A worker takes part in a silent protest at a senate committee
hearing considering bill 830 on Monday in Tallahassee.


rallies were organized
by unions and progres-
sive groups. Conserva-
tive tea party groups are
also planning counter-
protests.
Legislative leaders
appeared unruffled by
Tuesday s protests.
This is America,
people have every right
to protest positively or
negatively, said Senate
President Mike Harido-
polos, R-Merritt Island.
It s exciting people are
taking such an interest
in their government and
want to be vocal about
where they stand. He
said legislative business
would' t be impacted by.
protests.
Most union groups are
reticent to suggest that
bills to weaken unions
are politically motivated,
though the Florida Edu-


cation Association said in
a statement last month
that it is tantamount to
political retribution.
Democrats have long
counted on the support
of unions to finance their
campaigns. Last year,
unions were vocal in
their support of Demo-
cratic gubernatorial can-
didate Alex Sink. She lost
to Gov. Rick Scott, who
has indicated his support
for efforts to weaken the
power of unions.
These attacks on
public servants right to
collectively bargain are
nothing more than a
thinly veiled Republican
campaign strategy, said
Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St.
Petersburg, who sits on
the House State Affairs
Committee that will take
up many of the bills im-
pacting unions.

when wildlife makes these lands their home, I know
I've done my job."

More than 120 public
school students from
nearly 70 elementary
schools won Awards of
Distinction in the 2010-

During the school year,


10 sponsors and com-

, 1


nated the Polk County
Kids Tag Art program
in which fifth graders
created art to be used
for individual poly-vinyl
specialty license plates.
The program was created
by the Polk County Tax
Collector's Office five
years ago.
Students learned
practical applications of
license plate art and how
Florida's more than 100
specialty plates support
worthy causes. Kids Tag
Art license plates were
sold to the public for
mounting on the front
license plate areas of
vehicles. Proceeds are
used to buy classroom
art supplies. In five years
it has raised more than
$60,000, organizers said.

Sharpe, Polk County
Parks and Natural Re-
sources Division natural
areas manager, will be
honored "for her unfail-
ing dedication and hard
work for the preserva-
tion, management and
public accessibility to
Polk County's environ-
mental lands," Luther
Parrott, Green Horizon
executive director, said.
Open to the public,
the annual dinner and
raffle includes Bok Tower
Gardens' admission,
complimentary wine and
beer, music and dinner
for a donation of $25. A
presentation by Dr. John
Kiefer, "Florida Streams
... A Future at the Next

The Blazing Star was
created in 2001 to honor
those who have made a


significant contribution
to the preservation of
environmental sensitive
lands or to environmen-
tal education in the state
of Florida and particu-
larly Central Florida.
"The scrub blazing star
is a beautiful endangered
plant species with a lim-
ited range of existence
in the scrub of Central
Florida," Parrott added.
"Even more rare is the
individual or individuals,
who dedicate his or her
energies and resources
to the preservation and
protection of the natural
resources of this world."
Following eight years
in the citrus industry,
Sharpe became a bi-
ologist with the Natural
Resources Division of
Polk County in 1990. She
spent five years evaluat-
ing the health of water, *
bodies and initiated proj-
ects to improve the qual-
ity of surface waters as
part of a lake and stream
water quality program.
Sharpe was promoted
to coordinator of Polk
County's Environmental


Lands Program where
her work included the
purchase of environmen-
tally-sensitive properties,
protecting the natural
resources of acquired
lands, managing those
resources and develop-
ing appropriate natural-
based recreation.
She now oversees the
Invasive Plant Program
which provides invasive
exotic aquatic mainte-
nance control for Polk
County's lakes and rivers
with public boat ramps.
Under her leadership,
more than 25,000 acres of
environmental land have
been acquired and 84
lakes are being managed
for removal of invasive
exotic plants.
The award-winner
received her master of
public administration
from Troy University in
2006. She graduated from
Mercer University with a
double major in biology
and health and physical
education.
Since 1991, Green
Horizon and Bok Tower
Gardens have worked


Gaye narpe
together to bring the
importance of land pres-
ervation to the attention
of the public. In a joint
effort, 260 acres was ac-
quired by Green Horizon
to protect the view shed
of Bok Tower Gardens
from development.
"We share a contrac-
tual arrangement for
the restoration of all fee
simple lands to natural
habitat, provide trails
and educational fa-
cilities on the site for the
use and benefit of the
public," Green Horizon
President Alex Wheeler
explained..


Educator addresses

Sons. of Confederate

Veterans


Local educator and
historian Lloyd Harris
addressed the Sons of
Confederate Veterans
Brig. Gen. E.M. Law
Camp at Peace River
Country Club in Bartow
about the overview of
the conflict within Polk
County and surrounding
areas.
He talked to the club
on Feb. 15 at the Camp
1323's annual Lee-Jack-
son Banquet. Harris is
a past president of the
Polk County Historical
Association.
The Sons of Confeder-
ate Veterans (SCV) is pre-
serving the history and
legacy of the soldiers who
fought for the Confedera-
cy. "The'organization ex-
ists so future generations
can understand the mo-
tives that animated the
Southern states' seces-
sion and their forming of
an independent nation,
and to maintain a history
of the 1861-1865 period,"


organizers explained.
SCV is the direct heir of
the United Confederate
Veterans, and the oldest
hereditary organization
for male descendants of
Confederate soldiers.
Organized at Rich-
mond, Va., in 1896, SCV
serves as a historical, pa-
triotic and non-political
organization. SCV has
ongoing programs at the
local, state and national
levels that offer members
a wide range of activi-
ties, such as preservation
work, marking Confed-
erate soldiers' graves,
historical reenactments,
producing scholarly
publications and holding
regular meetings in local
"camps" to discuss the
military and political his-
tory of the War Between
the States.
For information about
the organization or
membership contact Bill
Thornhill at 294-5730.

Mardi Gras festivities 2011


Rachel Lund, Tom Bergere and Tyler Day were watching the
parade but could have been named the "Hair" Krewe at Satur-
day's Mardi Gras festivities.


Jerry Brubaker was a master bead thrower at Saturday's parade.


These girls are all smiles as they toss beads.


Wonder if they serve "Crabby Patties?"


Sara Michaels was the 2011 Mardi Gras Grand Marshal.


This float dubbed "Hubo" had live music, beads and bellies for
parade goers to feast their eyes upon.

Fort Meade resident to cycle to Ground Zero


By JESSICA THOMPSON
STAFF WRITER
Bobby Respress, a
longtime Fort Meade
resident, will be taking a
little trip soon.
Make that a big trip.
Respress will join more
than three dozen other
bicyclists for the fourth
annual Brotherhood Ride
2011 to Ground Zero in
New York City beginning
Aug. 20.
According to www.
- brotherhoodride.com,
the ride will be dedicated
to the 411 fallen heroes
on the 10th anniversary
of Sept. 11.
"We have 40 cyclists,
representing 21 separate
'public safety agencies,
riding this year," Jeff
Morse, Brotherhood Ride
president and founder
said. Respress is a Hardee


County firefighter and
paramedic who will be
joined by fellow firefight-
er Todd Barton.
The bicyclists will ride
more than 1,600 miles in
22 days beginning Aug.
20 in Naples and ending
at Ground Zero in New
York on Sept. 10.
His ride is scheduled
from Aug. 20 to Sept. 10.
Donations are being
accepted. According to
the Brotherhood Ride
website, other than
the cost of conducting
the ride, all donated
proceeds go directly to
the beneficiaries of the
fallen heroes. A dona-
tion page for Respress
has been established at
www.active.com/donate /
brotherhoodride2011 /
BobbyRespress.
Respress has complet-


ed more than 30 races
in the past four years
including 5Ks, 10OKs,
15Ks, four marathons,
and three triathlons.
He and his daughter
Bethany completed the
Gasparilla Michelob
Challenge which con-
sisted of a 5K and 15K on
Saturday, and another
half marathon and 5 plus
3K on Sunday, totaling
more than 33 miles. He
has participated in the
Gasparilla 15K for the
past three years.
Other races include
two Heartland Triathlons
and the Golden Gate Tri-
athlon which was run by
fire, emergency medical
personnel, and law en-
forcement. He completed
the Gold Gate Triathlon
with a time of one hour
and 12 minutes.


Respress has also run
the Disney marathon
three years in a row
since 2009, the Space
Coast Marathon held last
November which he fin-
ished in three hours and
55 minutes, and most
recently the Highlands
Half Marathon at High-
lands Hammock with a
time of one hour and 37
minutes.
Along with Bethany,
Respress is supported by
his wife, Lisa, son Jacob,
daughter Emma, parents
Larry and Cindy Res-
press, and grandfather
Ray Bigsby, all of Fort
Meade. He is the grand-
son of the late Betty Lou
Bigsby.

Development study enters vision stage


By BRIAN ACKLEY
EDITOR
A group aimed at es-
tablishing development
guidelines for much of
the land around Fort
Meade will meet again
March 24 in Bartow to
continue to craft a vision
for the area's land use.
Known officially as the
Bone Valley Selected Area
Study, the group eventu-
ally hopes to author a
document that "develops
a vision and supporting
plan for the future that
recognizes and protects '
existing community re-
sources while establish-
ing a framework for qual-
ity growth," according
to the project's purpose
statement.


In recent years, the
county has embarked
on a number of the so-
called SAS projects to
help tailor development
and planning guidelines
to specific parts of the
county. The county is
wrapping up a similar
SAS, for example, that fo-
cused on the State Road
60 corridor between
Bartow and Lake Wales.
The Bone Valley study
encompasses about
187,000 acres, or 14
percent of the county's
total land mass. The
area is generally defined
by a boundary south of
Lakeland, including un-
incorporated areas near
Bartow and Mulberry,
plus the areas south and
southeast of Fort Meade.


Aimee Bailey, a senior
planner with the county,
said the study, which
actually began in 2009,
was prompted by several
things.
"It's time to move to
something else. It's no
longer as appropriate as
it has been in the past to
have phosphate mining
as the overall land use
in the southwest part of
the county," Bailey said.
"As the mining industry
has finished mining, the
reclamation is more and
more complete, they're
not doing a whole lot of
new mining in Polk. It's
moving south. It's just
time to decide what we
want to see there in the
future. It's better for us
to have a plan ahead of


time versus just being
reactive."
Much of the work is
done by county staff, and
then filtered through a
so-called focus group
made up of many stake-
holders in the study area,
including government
officials and landowners.
Fort Meade City Man-
ager Fred Hilliard and
Ben Speight, a retired ag
teacher from Fort Meade
High School, are mem-
bers of the group. Tom
Mims, a large land owner
in the Bradley area, is an-
other, as is Parker Keen,
representing Mosaic.
She said Mosaic's
Streamsong Resort plans
were unveiled after the
SAS was launched, but
that the project certainly


fits in with what the
group has been discuss-
ing.
"I would say that just
like anything else, it may
not fit the entire district,
but it is obviously some-
thing that is very feasible
out there," she noted.
Bailey said the group
has agreed on seven
"guiding principles"
they will use as they
go through the vision-
ing process. The final
stage of the study is
actually preparing and
implementing the plan,
although the final docu-
ment will only be devel-
opment guidelines.
The guiding principles
include:
Promote a sustain-
able development


strategy
Encourage siting
of the various types of
development
Promote co-location
of infrastructure and
multi-modal forms of
transportation.
Promote conser-
vation, preservation,
enhancement, restora-
tion and management of
natural resources
Establish a transition
strategy
Coordinate with the
cities of Bartow, Fort
Meade and Mulberry
to develop policies and
standards.
Promote the use of
federal, state, and local
redevelopment pro-
grams, funding or incen-
tives to encourage reuse.
