Sunday alcohol


sales to be reviewed


ByJEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Howard Jeror wants alcohol sales on
Sunday in Bartow to match the sales of
every other day of the week and sees
no reason why they shouldn't.
Commissioners who said they never
really considered the subject ultimate-
ly asked the city attorney to look into
the ordinance regarding the percent-
age of alcohol, but will likely leave the
restricted Sunday sales in place.
In the city, alcohol cannot be sold,
consumed, served or permitted to
be sold between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m.
Monday through Saturday.
On Sunday, alcohol cannot be sold,
consumed, served or permitted to be


sold between 2 a.m. and noon, and
not between midnight and 7 a.m.
Monday, provided the beverages
contain more than 14 percent alcohol
by weight.
"This should be changed to 2.a.m.
to 7 a.m. seven days a week," Jeror
said, adding that being able to buy
alcoholic beverages to take home on
Sunday is a safer proposition than the
alternative of going to a restaurant
or bar drinking as much as you want,
"then getting behind the wheel of a car
and going home."
He also said reports that this could
increase crime also should not be
considered as he cited that the city

Myrick gets life

24-year-old convicted in

drive-by killing in 2010


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Independence Day 2012 may not
have meant much, if anything, to
Antwon Rashad Myrick, incarcerated
and later found guilty of the Aug. 23,
2010, shooting and murder of Irease
"Nito" St. Louis. Following Thursday's
July 5 sentencing, Independence Day
may have even less relevance.
Myrick was sentenced to life in pris-
on by Judge John Radabaugh on second
degree murder/use of a firearm and
must serve a minimum 25 years before
becoming possibly eligible for parole,
but not before his court-appointed
attorneyVince Trimarco attempted to
get the ruling overturned and asking
for acquittal, or failing that, asking for
a new trial. He tried to get "Stand Your
Ground" reinstated. In both instances
Radabaugh denied the motions; of the
former he stated there was not signifi-
cant evidence that warranted a "Stand
Your Ground" defense.
The denial was buttressed by the
prosecution, who stated the incident
was also more than just a drive-by
shooting; that Myrick, 24, pursued and
hunted down St. Louis. Prosecution
also alerted Radabaugh that Myrick
had not even apologized.
"Mr. Myrick, is there anything you
want to say?" asked Radabaugh.


Myrick's answer was inaudible and no
more than a few seconds in length.
Trimarco also argued to the character
of his client, to mitigate the sentence.
"Nothing the court rules is going to
bring back Mr. St. Louis," said Timaric,
who added Myrick deserved a more
lenient sentence." He began by stating
that Myrick's only two previous of-
fenses were minor, and traffic-related.
He also said that Myrick's action were
based on the belief his client was
convinced the victim had committed
armed robbery against Myrick several
days earlier, on Aug. 18, 2010; this had
been reported to the Bartow Police
Department.
Trimaric's supplications fell on deaf
ears,
"I am going to impose a life sen-
tence," said Radabaugh, who added
that Myrick had 30 days in which to
appeal.
Outside the courtroom, St. Louis's
girlfriend, Jennifer Perry, and his sister,
Saviour St. Louis, supported the life
sentence with mandatory 25 years.
"I'm just happy with the verdict,"
said Perry, who struggled to maintain
composure. "Nito's dead. Why should
he (Myrick) be allowed to have a happy
life?"
Nito's sister said practically the

rotesting assessment's fairness


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM


A request to not use the fire assessment
for a year probably won't happen, but
holding it where it is next year probably
will be.
Commissioners didn't respond to that
request to stop using it but it previously
had said it won't increase it and repeated
that Monday when several people ob-
jected to whether it was being used fairly.
Currently the city charges for 25 percent
of the fire department's needs from the
assessment and many have not noticed
it because with the fall in property values
since 2008, the total tax bill has not shown
an increase in Bartow. "The firefighters are
good people and they deserved to be paid
and covered but my concern is who gets
charged and who does not," said Clint
Edwards an assistant dealer principal at
Tom Edwards Chrysler Dodge Jeep. "If we
were all charged less money there would
be enough money."
Trish Pfeiffer asked commissioners,
"How many fires have there been at
businesses this year?" There was no
answer when she repeated the question.
"Yet businesses are doing the bulk of the
paying."
An example often cited and brought
up at the commission meeting was that
Bartow Ford is paying $31,000 in fire
assessment mostly due to the fact that
it has multiple buildings on its property,
yet it has been cited that it likely has
the most safeguards against fire. There


were other problems citizens cited such
as the second floor of buildings don't
get charged, charts from the property
appraiser's office are being read incor-
rectly that has lead to 65 businesses that
didn't get charged and businesses that are
located in restored single-family homes
are being charged as single-family homes
and not as businesses.
City Manager George Long ac-
knowledged the businesses that didn't
get charged because charts from the
property appraiser were misread by the
consultant's computer program, Willdan
Financial Associates. He said those
businessee-will be charged for being
overlooked and other short-comings will
be addressed.
Long also said in the next year there
won't be an increase in how much is
collected in the assessment and an overall
review of the plan which has been in
operation since 2009 will take place. But
working with the numbers provided by
the property appraiser's office seems like
the fairest way to do things.
"It's the best information available,"
Long said. "The city could do this on its
own but it would be a duplication and
who would pay the extra cost? The people
who are paying the fire assessment."
He said the city is working with the
property appraiser office and hopefully
"not have to go through a third party."
Some of the commissioners seemed to
take note to the objections of the assess-
ment and said as the budget is figured out
for the next year they would take note of


it. Former Chamber of Commerce execu-
tive director Mayme Burden-Clark said
Bartow survives on small businesses and
to influence its bottom line so heavily on
the fire assessment has a strong effect on
them and the community's well-being.
'A small business is defined by those
who employ 500 people and they usually
work six days a week," she said. "Bartow
exists on small business and we volunteer
around town and we try to help. We pay
taxes and our water bills," she said adding
that relying on them so heavily isn't fair.
Commissioner Wayne Lewis agreed this
could hurt the economic development
situation in town.
"The bottom line to me is businesses see
a bottom line increase that could lead to
a deterioration of our economic develop-
ment. I think we should go back and
possibly re-evaluate the initial data."
Mayor Leo Longworth also said he un-
derstood where the business community
objections come to but elected officials
sometimes have to make decisions that
would be the right thing for the commu-
nity, though it's gong to anger some.
"The challenge to us everybody wants
to have a good balance between business
and everything else," Longworth said.
"But we're the ones charged to the best
way to balance our budget."
In reviewing the tax bill that went to
residents last year, Commissioner James
Clements pointed out that while property
taxes decreased in the last year, the total
payment from Bartow residents from
the city was down the year before. Long


echoed that in saying the payments people
have made since 2007 have not risen.
Burden-Clark pointed out though that
th total bill hasn't decreased. Clements
then said the city isn't responsible for the
total tax, only certain portions of it. There
are county taxes, school district taxes
and more. However, Burden-Clark said
that is beside the point, the fairness of
the fire assessment is part they are most
concerned with.
Lewis backed that when he said refer-
ring to Bartow Ford, "Now they're paying
$34,000 it didn't have to pay before. We
should look at this."
Clements additionally said he has not.
been totally happy with the job Willdan
Financial Services has done since it
started to do the assessment.
However, there are still those who back
the fire assessment as the fairest way to
pay for something that is necessary.
"The assessment is the most fair sys-
tem," Commissioner Adrian Jackson said.
"It shares in cost equally. I believe in the
system we just want to have the best data."
Long also said something has to be
done to pay for this expensive service.
"Fire service is very expensive," he
said. "The money has to come from
somewhere."
Commissioners told those objecting to
the fairness they would keep fairness in
mind when figuring out the budget and
that was mostly what they wanted.
"The tax is not being objected,"
Edwards said. "It's how its being assessed
and its correctness."


Radio system given an eye for compliance


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

City Manager George Long Monday
was given permission by the city com-
mission to look into the cost of switch-
ing the city's radio system so it can
comply with a lower band of frequency
that will be in use.
"The police department and fire
department have 800 mega-hertz
systems but others do not," Long
told commissioners at a work session
Monday. "An 800 system would better
serve our needs."
He encouraged commissioners to
get a system where everyone can work
together to communicate with each
other with those outside the city and
within the city.
He said the upgrade would be a little


more costly and the upgrade is not
budgeted but getting the price now
could be helpful. He said he could get
the cost in the next week or so.
In other business:
Daryl Stewart, the director of the
Solid Waste Department, has accepted
a job in the Solid Waste Department
in Tampa and will be leaving his job
in Bartow, City Manager George Long
said.
Commissioner James Clements
was appointed to be a voting delegate
at the 86th Annual Florida League of
Cities conference on Aug. 23-25. He
was voted to 4-0 to be the primary
delegate and Mayor Leo Longworth
was selected as the alternate.
Commissioner Pat Huff was not pres-
ent at the city commission meeting
and did not vote.


Karen Guffey was re-appointed to
the Citizens Advisory committee. She
had just completed a three-year term.
This term expires in September 2015.
The vote was 4-0.
John Hutto was re-appointed to the
Citizen's Advisory Committee. He had
just completed a three-year term. This
term expires in September 2015. The
vote was 4-0.
Sheila Key was appointed to the
Citizen's Advisory Committee to
replace Jim Hill who had recently died.
The term expires in September 2015.
The vote was 4-0.
Commissioners adopted an amend-
ment to an ordinance to replace flood
hazard maps, to designate a floodplain
administrator and to adopt procedures
and criteria for development in flood
hazard areas by a 4-0 vote.

here are few sensations of pure freedom quite
like that experienced riding full-throttle and
bare-headed down the road on a motorcycle.
Oh, born to be wild, heavy-metal thunder and all
that. Cheap thrills.
Thrills? We'll give you that. Cheap? Hardly. There's
nothing cheap about what happens when something
goes wrong.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention released a study last week that showed
annual cost savings were four times greater in states
that had full motorcycle helmet laws, compared to
those that didn't, like Florida. The annual costs saved
- medical costs and productivity ranged from a
low of $2.6 million in New Mexico to $394 million in
California, which has a universal helmet law.
Florida's law requiring anyone under 21 to wear
a helmet did have an impact. The CDC figures the
youth-only law saved 19 lives and $38 million. It
also figures we could have done far better had a full
helmet law been in place.
The reason is simple: Helmets save lives and help
prevent serious head injuries.
As CDC Director Thomas R. Frieden said, "In 2010,
more than $3 billion in economic costs were saved
due to helmet use in the United States. Another


Our Viewpoint

$1.4 billion could have been saved if all motorcyclists
had worn helmets."
The report said helmet use saved the lives of 37 per-
cent of those who crashed on a bike; the number
was up to 41 percent among passengers. Despite the
fact that motorcycles make up only 3 percent of all
registered vehicles and account for less than 1 per-
cent of all vehicle miles traveled, they are responsible
for 14 percent of all traffic fatalities.
Some 4,502 motorcycle operators and passengers
were killed in 2010, a 55 percent increase from 2000.
The study indicated 12 percent of those killed were
ignoring the law and not wearing helmets in states
with universal helmet laws. But that figure jumped
to 64 percent in partial-helmet law states like Florida
and a whopping 79 percent in states with no laws at
all.
Despite claims to the contrary by motorcycle
enthusiasts, the CDC figures that helmets reduce the
likelihood of death by 37 percent. For the year 2010,
the NationalTransportation Safety Administration
estimates helmet use saved the lives of 1,544 riders.


Helmets also reduce the risk of brain injury by
69 percent. Bare-headed riders who get into crashes
are 40 percent more likely to die from a head injury.
Then there are the costs to everyone else.
The study estimates the total annual burden from
motorcycle accidents is as much as $12 billion. One
study.of 105 motorcyclists at major trauma centers
figured 63 percent of the costs of their care was paid
with public funds. Medicare paid for half.
Unhelmeted riders are twice as likely to suffer
traumatic brain injuries. And the median health care
charges for motorcycle riders with severe traumatic
brain injuries were 13 times higher than the charges
for those who did not have a traumatic brain injury.
What to do? It's simple.
"Helmets are the only safety measure proven to
save lives, and the universal helmet law is demon-
strated to be the best way to ensure helmet use,"
according to the CDC.
Of course, given the political muscle of ride-free-
.or-die motorcycle enthusiasts, the simple solution
is unlikely. It's strange, considering helmet use is so
clearly in the best interests of the bikers themselves
and society at large. Maybe we'll just chalk it up to the
fact that "Born to be safer" just doesn't make it on the
rock 'n' roll soundtrack.


Breakup of the Portmanteaus


Maybe it is because I am over 13 years
of age, but I have to fight the gag reflex
when I hear the name TomKat men-
tioned on a legitimate TV news show.
In case you don't have cable in the
cave in which you have been hiding
from the rest of the world, TomKat is/
are the Celebrity Divorce Couple du
Jour.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, i.e.
TomKat, get it? How cute! Quick; get me
a barf bag.
In the first place, I don't consider
divorce to be a spectator sport. In the
second place, I don't care.
I became a big Tom Cruise fan when
"Top Gun" came out. Any short guy who
can win over 5-foot-10 Kelly McGillis
while saving the world from the Evil
Empire, even in Hollywood make
believe, is OK with me.
But I sort of wrote him off after his
couch-jumping declaration of his love
for Katie Holmes on the OprahWiifrey
show in 2005.

It is this meshing of names that
almost drives me to ... well ... jumping
on a couch like a chimpanzee with a
terminal infestation of fleas.
Before TomKat there were Brangelina
(Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) and
Bennifer (Ben Affleck and Jennifer
Lopez).
In the Clinton years, we even had
Billary, but mercifully, nobody came up
with Bonica.

With the help of an Internet-savvy
daughter, I have learned that there is
a name and a protocol for such name-
entwining pedantry.
The word for it is "portmanteau."
Though popularly used in show busi-
ness, it also can be found on the map in
names like' Texarkana and Mexicali.

And the airlines, in order to save .002
cents per serving of what passes for
food at 20,000 feet, have given us the
"spork," an eating utensil which renders
the features of both the spoon and the
fork virtually useless.

But back to the protocol.
When applied to people, rather than
cities or linguistics or airline meals, a
portmanteau is reserved for the "super-
couples" among us.
And the names must not be separated
(or joined) by a hyphen, because that
would

I have found no protocol that explains
why Kate rates a capital K in TomKat,

victims of this name-crunching craze
are denied a capital letter of their own.
I worry about stuff like that.

Letters to the editor


A great time had by all


Never too late to extend a sincere
thank you on behalf of the Lake Wales
community to all those who made the
reception for the Passion Play (mural)
dedication such a rousing success. The
bad weather on June 26 only reinforced
the community's determination to show
support for this undertaking. Without
the gracious support of The Lake Wales
News staff opening their facility to keep
everyone comfortable, we would not
have had such a great time.
The strong backs of the Care Center
work camp volunteers were instrumen-
tal in getting everything in place and
cleaning up afterwards.
The seamstress abilities of Claribel
Turner added a certain ambiance with
the reproduction of the Passion Play
costumes.

publisher pens advice for managers


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Quick. What is the first obligation of a
newspaper?
It was a question S.L. Frisbie, Iy
publisher emeritus of The Polk County
Democrat, said he was fond of asking
people who used to tour the newspa-
per. He then added that in all the years
he asked, only one person answered
correctly the first time.
"It was a young boy," said Frisbie as
he recounted the story, the impression
being the little boy's answer was tenta-
tive at best. "To make money?"
Absolutely right, said Frisbie. After
all, a newspaper is like every business.
It has to make a profit. Otherwise its
ability to serve people, to be a protector
of the community, to hold elected lead-
ers as well as bureaucrats accountable,
ceases.
"We can't do that if the doors are
closed," he said. Not everyone was
in accordance, though. "My mother-
in-law, may she rest in peace, never
accepted the first rule."
The first rule? Yes. The first of 20 rules
S.L. Frisbie has elaborated upon in
his recently-published book, "Frisbie's
Laws: 20 Surefire Rules for Successful
Management."
According to Frisbie, the rules were
"the management philosophy of
the Frisbie company," which owned
The Polk County Democrat until he
sold it to Sun Coast Media Group in
December 2006.
But the idea for writing down the
rules wisdom Frisbie accumulated
through his years as he rose through
the ranks of the family business -
came more than two decades before.
He was driving home from Lakeland
one evening in 1984 when he broached
the idea with his longtime friend, Mary,
who also happens to be his wife.
S "So I thought I ought to put these
things in writing," he said. She urged
him to do so, and he did, although he
didn't start in earnest until early 2011.
"I'm a columnist, not an author."
Fortunately, he added, the book is a

County Democrat, holds up a copy of his first

Successful Management:'
quick read.
As for the 20 rules, it is wisdom
Frisbie said he acquired on average of
about one per year over the span of 40
years. But it is simple common sense.
"None of this is rocket science," he
said. It was (and is) just knowledge
gleaned through observations and
on-hand applications. It also was just a
list, one that he shared with father and
son Derek and David Dunn-Rankin,
who had bought the newspaper. They
liked it so much they made copies and
passed them around. One of those
recipients was Richard Hackney, at the
time the vice president of operations
for the Charlotte Sun, part of the Dunn-
Rankins' Sun Coast Media Group.
Hackney currently is president of Sun
Coast Press, a separate business unit of
Sun Coast Media Group.
"He was so impressed by them, he
wrote them in longhand and then


typed them onto his laptop," said
Frisbie.
Absolutely true, confirmed Hackney.
"I'm always collecting tidbits from
people with good ideas," said Hackney.
"These were a log of good ideas and I
didn't want to lose sight of them."
"It's good advice for a new manager
or seasoned veteran," he added.
Derek Dunn-Rankin agreed.
"This is a different kind of advice
book," said Dunn-Rankin. "It's down to
earth, practical and in S.L.'s style, filled
with a lot of wit."
Among the 20 rules, said Frisbie, one
of his pet peeves was the expression,
"It's not my job." It is Rule No. 11. In
the opening subheading of the chapter,
Frisbie wrote, "Anyone who takes the
attitude 'That's not my job' does so at
the peril of finding new and deeper
meaning to those words."
That attitude was one of frustra-
tion to him early into his tenure as
publisher. However, once he addressed
the situation head-on, his supervisors
really took it to heart. Perhaps too
much so. In his book, Frisbie wrote that
it became an inside joke.
"They would start to say, 'It's not
my oops, I didn't mean to say that,'"
laughed Frisbie.
On a serious note, the two most im-
portant rules are not at the beginning.
One is in the middle (Rule No. 13), and
the other toward the end (Rule No.
16). The former states, "The customer
is king; if we take care of the king, the
king will take care of us." Simply put:
Customer service that goes over, above
and beyond. Sometimes what it might


POLl

STAT
COLLE(


cause in inconvenience reaps a bounti-
ful reward in return on investment and
goodwill generated.
Frisbie cites an example in his book
about a grocery store he called, asking
if a product was still on sale and in
stock. Frisbie had called not too long
before the store closed. The manager
told Frisbie the product was still in
stock, but that the sale would end
when the store closed. However, the
manager said he would keep the store
open so that Frisbie could come by and
come buy. Not only did that manager
advance in his career, but more than 20
years later, Frisbie still patronizes that
store.
It is Rule No. 16 that Frisbie asserts is
the most important, and it came about,
in part, as a request by his son, Loyal, at
his high school graduation, who asked
a favor of Frisbie.
"My son asked, 'Dad, if you could
give me but one bit of advice, what
would it be?'" said Frisbie. Asking for
some time to think about an answer,
he composed a five-page response. In
his conclusion, Frisbie wrote his son,
"Always do the right thing."
To Frisbie, as he stated in his book,
this is the most important rule of all.

City to seek reductions


without affecting service


City may consider rollback

rate to get more revenue


ByJEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

Bartow City Commissioners plan
to discuss next year's budget Monday,
July 16 with the objective being to find
what expenditures can be cut that do not
have to be made up for in future years.
"We have to identify cuts and main-
tain the level of service," City Manager
George Long said at Monday's work
session. "I don't want to cut this year
that has to be made up for next year."
Commissioners saw a proposed
budget handed out at Monday's session
at just more than $69 million but gener-
ates $132,995 less than last year.
"The propose funding for Fire
Services includes the fire assessment
which remains unchanged at the
rate of 25 percent," a proposal reads.
"Overall general und expenditures
decreased even though benefit costs
increased."-
Long let commissioners know that


each department has been looked into
and initial reductions have been made
in several areas.
Long said there doesn't have to be a
session held in July to review the pro-
posed budget, but added revenues are
not going up and he's not sure the worst
of the economic situation is behind us.
A meeting probably wouldn't be a bad
idea.
"The money has to come from some-
where," he said. "That's why we should
have a session sometime this month,"
The proposed budget holds the mill-
age rate at 3.992, the same as it is for
this year, and it makes the taxable value
this year down about $35 million.
Upon that, Commissioner James
Clements asked what the rollback rate is
figuring that by using that it could help.
"It would help a little bit-and that
wouldn't put up taxes," he said.
The rollback rate is 4.3931 mills.
The millage rate represents $1 in taxes
for every $1,000 in assessed value.

Bartow man, woman arrested for aggravated child abuse


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

Polk County Sheriff's Special Victims
Unit detectives arrested 32-year-old
David Lee Sinnett, 2765 Holly Lane,
Bartow, for one count aggravated child
abuse, on Wednesday, July 4, according
to a press release issued by the PCSO.
According to an affidavit filed by
Detective Stephen Tidwell, Sinnett alleg-
edly beat a 2-year-old boy with a clothes
hanger about his face and body, causing
several bruises and severely injuring the
boy's eye.
Authorities were contacted shortly
past 1 a.m., after the child had been
brought to Winter Haven Hospital.
The boy had severe bruising around
his right eye and cheek area, as well
as multiple bruises on his right rear
shoulder and one on the middle of his
back. There also were multiple bruises
on his buttocks. The police report
stated the injuries to the back appeared
to be the result of being struck with a
clothes hanger.
The attending physician in the
emergency room, Dr. Blind, said the
injury to the eye, a fractured orbital
bone between his right eye and nose
was caused by blunt force trauma. The
injury to the eye, said Blind, could re-
sult in possible permanent eye damage
if not loss of sight.
According to interviews with wit-
nesses, Sinnett had grown angry with
the victim and turned him upside down
and was shaking him. The witness said
she was afraid of Sinnett, as well as


stated he"'always
messes" with the -
victim.
In another
interview with the
child's mother, she
said Sinnett beat
the child because
he couldn't pro-
nounce his (the
child's) sister's
name correctly. David Sinnett
She stated Sinnett,
while not yelling,
appeared angry, judging by the expres-
sion on his face. She walked out of the
room and according to reports, said she
did not see how the 2-year-old received
the injuries to his face.
At about 6 p.m., the investigating
officer conducted a non-custodial
interview with Sinnett, who was told he
was not under arrest and could leave at
any time. Reports note Sinnett admit-
ted he "does get upset with the victim
when he aoes not pronounce words
correctly, because he feels the victim
does not try."
Sinnett admitted he did hit the boy
with a clothes hanger on his back, but
only twice, and denied having caused
the injuries to buttocks, or the facial
injuries. He said he hit the 2-year-old
because the boy had gotten too close
to an electrical wall outlet. He said the
facial bruises were the result of falling
off a skateboard several days earlier.
Sinnett stated he rubbed Vaseline on
the facial injuries, "like they do with
boxers." Reports note he said in the


process, he had reopened a wound
causing it to bleed because he (Sinnett)
"probably was rubbing to hard."
Sinnett admitted he was currently
on federal probation for aggravated
assault.
Believing there was sufficient evi-
dence, Tidwell arrested Sinnett and
charged him with violating Florida
State Statute 827.03, Aggravated Child
Abuse, which is defined as "a person
who knowingly or willfully abuses a
child and in doing so causes great
bodily harm, permanent disability, or
permanent disfigurement to the child."
In addition to Sinnett, Polk County
Sheriff's Special Victims Unit detectives
arrested 29-year-old Arlene Tilson, of
Bartow, on July 5, and charged her with
one count child neglect and one count
contributing to the delinquency of a
minor, as part of their ongoing investi-
gation into the abuse.
According to statements from
witnesses and Tilson herself, she
witnessed the abuse of the 2-year-old
boy by Sinnett and did nothing to
stop it, nor did she take the boy to the
hospital or report the abuse to PCSO or
any other authorities. The PCSO would
not release the woman's relationship
to the child lest it reveal the identity
of the child. Per Florida State Statute
119, child abuse victim information is
confidential and exempt.
"We want to send a clear message
that we will arrest anyone who harms
a child, or stands here and watches
someone harm a child," stated Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd. "It is


unthinkable to me how anyone could
allow a child to be abused by this
violent man, and then not even take
the child to the hospital or report the
abuse to authorities."

sentenced to five years in state prison
for those crimes. He was released from
prison in May 2010.


ALCOHOL

of Lake Wales changed its Sunday
sales in 2009 to match the other six
days and statistics show there was no
increase in crime since then.
"In Lake Wales, in 2010 crime went
down," he said. "Is that because of
alcohol? I don't know, but crime didn't
go up."
Commissioner Adrian Jackson said
this is the first time he'd heard of
anyone who wanted to challenge the
ordinance, but he did question the
14 percent quotient.
"Why put the 14 percent in there?"
he asked. "It puts something in there
that could be convoluted to officers."
Trish Pfeiffer said the weight
amount is something to question as


she has experienced a problem at
Walmart in the past when she has
tried to buy a bottle of wine on a
Sunday and the store refuses to sell
any alcohol on Sunday because there
is some confusion with the ordinance
and it doesn't want to accidentally
violate it.
"Publix will sell on Sunday but
Walmart won't do it because of the
ordinance," she said. "I've talked to
them and found out the ordinance
was not clear to them."
Since it was first passed, the or-
dinance was cleared up a little on
the amount and though the bottles
of wine at 12 ounces can be sold,
Walmart, she said, still won't sell it.
"I think something needs to be
addressed," she said.
But ultimately on the sales on
Sunday, commissioners leaned onto
the fact that Sunday is the Sabbath


day and though times have changed
over the years, they didn't seem to
want to sway to respecting that.
Mayor Leo Longworth said the sale
being restricted on Sunday probably
stems from the Sabbath though it
probably doesn't mean the same thing
today to many people as it did before.
"Sunday was dedicated to be a
Sabbath day and it was the day all
people went to church," he said.
"But times do change though hope-
fully we'll never get away from the
Sabbath."
Jeror said he understands that
thought but he said Sunday is not the
Sabbath day to everyone.
"There are those where Sunday is
not the Sabbath day and we're asking
them to observe that," he said.
When asked if he is involved in the
sale of alcohol, Jeror told commis-
sioners he is a private citizen, resident


of Bartow, and is not in the alcohol
business at all. He is a paramedic and
though he's never appeared before a
public board before his interest in get-
ting the law changed, it is a personal
objection of his that there is a different
* set of laws for Sunday. And, it can
cause personal problems.
He brought up Sunday afternoon
football. When he sets aside Sunday
to watch football games and throw a
party and forgets to buy alcohol on
Saturday it can interrupt everything.
"When I get ready to watch football
and I forgot to get beer Saturday and
the pre-game is coming, I'm going to
miss Howard because I can't go out
and get alcohol before noon."
In the end, attorney Sean Parker
was asked to look into the ordinance's
14 percent rule and said it can come
back for a discussion at a future work
session.

same thing.
Perry admitted ifthas been difficult.
"It's not been easy," she said. "It's
never going to be easy."
Perry had given birth to their son
just veeks before the shooting. The
government, she added, has been of
no assistance. Neither she nor her


son are entitled to any government
assistance program, she said.
"The government wouldn't even
give $200 for death benefits," she
said. "That's because Nito hadn't
earned the minimum. How could he?
He was only 21 when he was killed.
That's not enough time to earn the
minimum."
However, Myrick's attorney let it be
known matters were far from over.
"My option will be to file an appeal,"
he said.

COUNTY REPORT


Part of bullying lawsuit may be dismissed


Attorney says school district is following the law


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

A portion of the bullying lawsuit filed
against the Polk County School Board
by a former Poinciana family may be
dismissed, according to Rich Lopez of
Bartow law firm Boswell and Dunlap,
who is working on the lawsuit for the
school system.
Lopez says the part of the suit
claiming the school system ignored
the Jeffrey Johnson Stand Up for All
Students Act of 2008 should be dis-
missed because the law itself doesn't
provide a remedy for failing to comply
with it. The law, according to Lopez,
simply says the schools must adopt
policies to protect children from bully-
ing or harassment.


"We've done that," he says, "so it
doesn't apply."
He also said the law doesn't provide
for civil damages for failure to comply.
While waiting to see if the courts accept
the motion to dismiss that part of the law-
suit, Lopez said, the schools are continu-
ing their fact-finding in the matter.
The lawsuit, filed more than a month
ago, claims an 11-year-old student
was continuously harassed by fellow
students while he attended Palmetto
Elementary School in Poinciana. It
claims the boy was "slammed against
concrete walls causing injuries, was
tripped, grabbed, punched, pinched,
thrown down on the concrete" and
"had torn clothing, was bloodied and
had bruised legs and arms." .
"The plaintiffs can say what they


please," Wes Bridges, the school board
attorney, said earlier, "while the board
is restrained from discussing the
privacy of a child."
The lawsuit, according to Lopez, asks
some $300,000 in damages based on
four basic claims: negligent supervi-
sion, loss of filial consortium, negligent
and reckless behavior resulting in
emotional distress and general neg-
ligence. Lopez added, however, that
under Florida's sovereign immunity,
the board could only be held liable for
$100,000 for the child and $100,000 for
the parents.
While waiting to hear from the courts
on the dismissal, Lopez said the school
system is continuing "the discovery
process" which translates to investigat-
ing the lawsuit's claims.


So far, Lopez says, the school system
investigation indicates "the board and
administration followed its procedures
and responded appropriately" to
complaints about the alleged bullying
and harassment.
He added that both his office and the
boy's lawyer, Justin Clark of Longwood,
were continuing to "build our cases
and interview the people involved."
He added it may take months before
a ruling is issued on the dismissal of
the portion of the lawsuit, and even
longer for the remainder to follow the
legal steps toward resolution.
"First we build our cases," he ex-
plained, "then, we'll go to mediation and
if we can't solve it there, we'll go to trial."
He added it "will take many months
to resolve."


Progress Energy finalizes deal to

merge with N.C.-based Duke Energy


By IVAN PENN
TAMPA BAY TIMES

Progress Energy and Duke Energy
finalized their merger agreement
Tuesday, creating the nation's largest
utility with 7.1 million customers across
six states.
The close of the merger ended a year
and a half of regulatory wrangling that
twice nearly derailed the $26 billion
deal. But officials at the two North
Carolina-based utilities remained com-
mitted to completing the agreement.
The combined company will be called
Duke Energy and headquartered in
Charlotte, N.C.
Progress Energy CEO Bill Johnson,
who had been slated to be chief execu-
tive and president of the combined
company, resigned by mutual agree-
ment, and Duke's Jim Rogers will
assume the role as the merger between
the two utilities closed.
Duke's llth hour decision to replace
Johnson with Rogers invoked memories
of another Charlotte mega merger that
led to an executive's departure: Bank of
America ex-chief Hugh McColl's ouster
of David Coulter in 1998.
The issue with McColl and Coulter
was the writing off of hundreds of
millions of dollars on a $1.4 billion
loan backed by Bank of America under
Coulter for a hedge fund.
"The two CEOs had a falling out in
the final stages of the merger having to
do with the size of some losses hav-
ing to do with Bank of America," said
Peter Schwarz, an economic professor
at the University of North Carolina at
Charlotte.
In the case of Progress and Duke, the
issue, Schwarz said, it appears to be the
billions related to the broken Crystal
River nuclear plant.
"There does seem to be a parallel
possibly opening up," Schwarz said. "It
could be the recognition that the cost
of the Crystal River plant could be a
larger concern than perhaps Duke had
realized when they first had undertaken
things."
Rogers, who originally served as Duke
Energy's CEO, was initially slated to be
the executive chairman of Duke Energy
after the merger.


"The new Duke Energy will be better
able to serve our 7.1 million customers'
energy needs in a safe, reliable, afford-
able and increasingly clean manner,"
Rogers said. "As a combined organiza-
tion, we will work to deliver benefits
to our customers, create value for our
shareholders, and enhance the career
opportunities of our employees."
Because of a 1-for-3 reverse stock split
and Duke reclaiming some of its shares,
the company's stock price soared
Tuesday almost 200 percent from $23.28
at Monday's close to as much as $69.89
in early morning trading.
There's no change in actual value of
Duke stock. Duke simply gave investors
one new share at the value of three
shares they had before the merger.
Opponents of the merger took a more
ominous view.
"Creation of the nation's largest
electric utility will require enhanced vigi-
lance and action by public advocates to
protect our economy, our environment
and our democracy from a giant corpo-
ration well-known for its use of political
muscleto pursue profits and expansion,"
said Jim Warren, executive director of the
environmental and consumer watchdog
organization N.C. WARN.
Robert Gardner, Greenpeace's climate
campaigner, said Duke Energy has
touted itself as a leader "in innovat-
ing the energy marketplace," but he
questions the utility's commitment to
the protecting the environment and
consumers.
"As all signs point to continued use
of fossil fuel and nuclear power as the
primary means of generating electricity,
we have doubts about the sincerity of
their rhetoric," Gardner said.
After Progress and Duke announced
the merger in January 2011, the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission twice
rejected the deal because of concern it
would hurt competition in the Carolinas.
The two North Carolina-based
utilities Progress in Raleigh, Duke
in Charlotte eventually submitted a
plan to dilute the combined company's
grip on power, and on June 8, FERC
approved the deal.
State regulators in North Carolina ap-
proved the deal on Friday, followed by
South Carolina regulators on Monday.

Among those honored at the June 26 Polk County Commissioners meeting were Anthony
Pirillo and Jacob Lewis (third and fourth from left). Each had attained the rank of Eagle
Scout with Fire Rescue Fire Explorer Post 522. With them are (from left) Polk County Fire
Chief David Cash and Explorer Post Commander George Vail.


The merger is expected to result
in more than 1,800 job cuts, many of
which have already taken place. More
than 1,100 come from voluntary sever-
ance, 368 from vacancies and about 350
through cuts, including some poten-
tially in Florida.
The Progress-Duke deal follows
another big utility merger between
Illinois-based Exelon Corp., and
Maryland-based Constellation Energy
Group. When that merger closed, the
combined Exelon company ranked
it first in the nation with 6.6 million
customers and 17 iiillion megawatts of
power generation.
Exelon now falls to second.
But the new larger Duke will have a
myriad of challenges.
The company's new board must
decide whether to repair the broken
Crystal River nuclear plant in Citrus
County, and whether to move forward
with the construction of the $24 billion
Levy County nuclear plant.
Rogers told the Charlotte Observer
that the Crystal River plant ranks No. 1
on the new Duke's to-do list.
Because of its size, the combined
company is expected to attract more


capital for projects. But it's the custom-
ers who will ultimately pay for new
construction, which means bills are
going to rise.
The added strength of the combined
companies already has led some 30
lenders to promise $6 billion in credit
after merger closes.
Rogers and Johnson have said nuclear
power is a necessary part of the energy
mix.
Both companies have proposed
nuclear projects on the books, includ-
ing Progress' Levy plant in Florida and
expansion of the Shearon Harris plant
in North Carolina. Duke is proposing to
build two new reactors at its Lee plant
in South Carolina.
And both utilities also have plans for
new natural gas plants, while looking to
retire some of their older coal fired plants.
Before the merger, Duke had con-
structed an advanced coal-fired plant
that will produce low emissions. That
project ran $1 billion over budget and
the utility agreed in a settlement not to
pass those costs onto customers.
A former top Duke executive and
Indiana's utility regulator lost their jobs
after exchanging emails about it.

Dixie Youth World Series draws closer


By LARRY JEWETT
CORRESPONDENT
Bartow's Dixie Youth World Series
committee has hit the latest stage of
preparations for the upcoming event.
The committee will now meet each
week to finalize the plans for one of the
biggest youth sporting events seen by
the city.
Bartow will be hosting teams from 11
different states in the Majors and AAA
divisions of Dixie Youth Baseball. The
first game at the George Pittas Complex
will be Saturday, Aug. 4, following an
opening ceremonies event at Joker
Marchanr Stadium on Friday, Aug. 3.
There is a continuing push to get
more community businesses to back
this event, which is not likely to oc-
cur again in Bartow for many years.
Organizers of the league try to give all
states a fair shot at the tournament
games. Florida will likely not see a
chance until 2024 and then it is likely
to be elsewhere in the Sunshine State.
While several local businesses have
jumped on board, there are still quite
a number who could benefit from the
1,500-2,000 people expected to come
into the area for the week. Sponsor
packages including signage, program
ads and other amenities remain, but
the deadline will be arriving soon.


There is preparation time required for
artwork to be submitted to printers and
signmakers. Interested businesses can
contact Nikki Yates at 863-698-4441.
Community volunteers are needed
for a number of positions during game
day events. A listing of the positions
can be found at www.bartowbaseball.
org. Once you have found a spot
where you can be a part of the World
Series, visit the World Series site at
www.2012dixieyouthworldseries.com
and register to become a volunteer.
Potential volunteers will receive a
follow-up e-mail requesting contact
information and shirt size. Volunteers
will have an organizational meeting at
a later date.
The committee also heard a report
on field preparation from City of
Bartow Parks & Recreation Director
Angie Whisnant. A three-man crew
from Williams fence has been working
on all four fields to put new fencing
in place. Grass maintenance has been
undertaken with fields going through
an initial spraying with a follow-up
scheduled later in the month. Clay
will be added and groomed to cre- -
ate the highest quality field position.
Other amenities are being cleaned and
spruced up for the event.
As the host team for the World Series,
Bartow will have representatives in

each division, giving hometown fans
an additional reason to support this
effort. In addition to the teams from
the 11 states, officials from the repre-
sentative squads as well as national
organizers will spend their week in the


area. Bartow has been challenged to
meet and exceed the efforts of previ-
ous World Series and there is a lot of
work remaining. Anyone interested in
helping can visit either of the websites
listed to get involved.


Smith Boulevard already taking shape


By CATHY PALMER-
CORRESPONDENT

Bartow's newest highway, named
Smith Boulevard, is taking shape
as it eases from U.S. Highway 98
near Bartow Ford through what
was once Stuart dairy farm land,
crosses Saddle Creek and the Old
Bartow Winter Haven Road to empty
onto U.S. Highway 17 just south of
Crossover Road.
A recent tour of the new construc-
tion shows clearly how the new
two-mile road will look when it
is finished in about year. It will
be four lanes of divided highway
with sidewalks and underground
drainage, according to Polk County
Transportation Department spokes-
man Bill Skelton.
Skelton said the new highway will
have four 12-foot travel lanes with
four-foot shoulders, curbs and gut-
ters at the edge of the pavement and
a 12-foot wide asphalt path on the
north side of the road which will be
shared by bicyclists and pedestrians.
There also will be a 22-foot wide
grassed median dividing the two
lanes in each direction.
Today, the $11 million road is dirt,
but its new configuration can't be
missed. It stretches a wide path and
presents an open road from Bartow
Ford to Saddle Creek where huge
cranes are preparing to install pil-
ings for the bridge over the creek.
From the U.S. 17 approach, the
new roadscape stretches under
High tension power lines, and
crosses sections of demolished

which has been demolished so new
drainage structures can be built
underneath the road. According to
Project Engineer Joe Montoya, the
old Bartow road may be closed for as
much as six months for the massive
drainage culverts to be installed. He
added, however; the contractor, Lane
Construction of Eaton Park, is mak-
ing "good progress" and is expected
to "move as quickly as he can so
we can reopen Old Bartow-Winter

Haven Road."
The new highway will also have
traffic signals at each end, one on
U.S. 98 at the entrance and another
on U.S. 17 and one at the crossing of
the Old Bartow-Winter Haven Road.
According to earlier reports, there
had been talk of an elevated pedes-
trian crossing for Fort Fraser Trail at
the north end of the project, but ac-
cording to Skelton, the Polk County
Board of County Commissioners has


approved an at-grade crossing with
pedestrian signals which appar-
ently alleviated disapproval voiced
by Bartow Ford. The car dealership
was concerned about accessibility
to its facilities on the south side of
the North 98 entrance to the new
road and the potential removal of its
business sign.
Construction started in mid-April
and should be completed in early
July 2013, Skelton said.

Summer downtown is not only for
children. Starting July 10, but afterwards
on the first Tuesday of every month
(not just the summer months), a new
program, Un-"Wine" uncorks.
Participants will start at the host
business, where they will sample wines.
From there, they will first be given cards
that will need to be punched by at least
eight other businesses that night. Once


participants return to the host business,
they will then turn in their cards and be
eligible for awgift basket furnished by the
hope business.
Fred Martin, the proprietor of The
Wine Stable and JFD seafood restau-
rant, will furnish the wines to each host
business, said Mikel Dorminey with
Main Street Bartow Inc.

THE ONLY SUMMER BARBECUE THAT SAVES YOU MONEY


GOING ON NOW AT SORENSEN & SCHADE JEEP -


CHRYSLER-DODGE- RAM



Jeep S --


LAKE WALES, FLORIDA It's a
fact that backyard barbecues are
popping up everywhere around
Lake Wales this summer, even in
one place that's sure to surprise.
A most unlikely spot, the car lot.
General Sales Manager, Wayne
Weathersby is donning an apron
and getting ready to do some
grilling of his own.

But be warned: it's not meat he's
grilling up! Instead of corn on
the cob, they'll be roasting your
old ride and offering up car on
the cob at Sorensen & Schade
Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram
this weekend during the Back-
yard Car-B-Q.



TOO HOT FOR

THE AUCTIONS
Weathersby explained, "It's hot-
ter than Hades right now. I'm just
plain exhausted. The last thing
I want to do is spend my days
scrambling for cars at the auc-
tion. Problem is. July is my busy
time of year and I need cars now
more than ever."

"That's why I'm inviting everyone
down to my summer Backyard Car-
B-Q. I know people can't resist a
summer soir6e so when they trade
in any car over 2 years old. I'll
give them up to $4.704.00 off any
vehicle in stock so they can stop
driving a car they hate and upgrade
to a nicer, newer car. I'll bypass the
auction and they'll get to go home
in their nicer, newer ride and have


-~i.


some summer fun in the process."
Everybody knows that car dealers
rely on sales during the summer
months to keep their business in the
red from year to year. 75% of their
annual profit comes from sales dur-
ing these peak summer months.
With the increase in sales comes
the need to restock inventory. It's
very important for car dealers to
take in as many trades as they can
to keep up with demand especiallI
when fuel prices and inventory lev-
els are as unpredictable as they are
right now.

So right now is the best time to up-
grade your car and life; trade in any
vehicle over 2 years old and get
up to $4,704.00 off a nicer, newer
car so that you can stop driving
a car you hate at the Backyard
Car-B-Q where Weathersby is
flippin' cars instead of burgers!


FIREPOWER:

BURN UP THE

BAD CREDIT BLUES

WORRIED ABOUT A FEW
BURNS ON YOUR CREDIT
REPORT? Chill out at the Back-
yard Car-B-Q where the ultimate pit
master, Wayne Weathersby, will grill
the banks to get you approved. He
won't take no for an answer! It's the
GREAT CAR-B-Q CHALLENGE
OF 2012-Braggin' Rights' go to the
craftiest cook-to the one who melts
your credit challenges away, and
helps you get approved for a nicer,
newer car.

As Weathersby made very clear, "I
don't want anyone to stay away from
my Backyard Car-B-Q because of
bad credit. I don't care a hoot about
what that report says. I work hard to
help as many people as I can get ap-
proved, especially those who really
need my help. I really do want ev-
eryone to leave the party in a nicer,
newer car. I believe no one should
have to drive a car they hate."

With the volume of business Weath-
ersby brings to the table with his
"For The People Credit Approval
Process." the banks go out of their
way to treat [his/her] customers
right. They work together to find so-
lutions.

"My automotive finance experts keep
fighting for you long past the point
many others quit! So come down to
grill and chill at my barbecue hot-
spot. We'll work hard to send you
home in a nicer, newer car today!"
exclaimed Weathersby.


WHEN THE HEAT

LETS UP SO WILL

BE SURE TO GET DOWN TO So-
rensen & Schade Jeep Chrys-
ler Dodge Ram where you can
trade in any car over 2 years old and

you hate. Upgrade to a nicer, newer car
at the Backyard Car-B-Q. The grill
is heatin' up! Weathersby is ready to
smoke that old ride you can't wait to
get rid of! It's time to drive a car you
love and say goodbye to that clunker
you hate!

Bartow celebrates Independence Day

Rear Adm. AJ. Jackson (USN Ret.) (front) and SFC Lloyd Harris (USA Ret.) salute those who gave
their lives in military service after laying a wreath at the memorial during a ceremony at the
Fourth of July celebration in Bartow Wednesday. The ceremony acknowledged the 50th anniver-
sary of the start of the Vietnam War.


Seen through tree branches, Fourth of July fireworks create abstract art in the sky Wednesday
night.


Bartow Adult Concert Band conductor John DeYoung leads the audience in singing "The Battle
Hymn of the Republic" during the band's annual Fourth of July concert on Wednesday. The crowd
at Bartow Civic Center heard patriotic numbers, medleys of spirituals, and Dixieland tunes on the
program which closed with "The Stars and Stripes Forever," the National March of the U.S. by John
Philip Sousa.
