Thirty-four students went to school last
week.
Bartow High School math teachers Amy
Roberts and Brandie Waid each had a class-
room of ninth grade students for ... get this ...
Algebra Camp.
From Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to
noon, students were given a review as they
have to retake the Algebra I End of Course
(EOC) exam that are scheduled for July 30 and
Aug. 1-2. Passing this test is a state graduation
requirement. The retest is for students who
were close to passing the test at the end of the
school year but did not. However, more than
those who have to retake the test attended the


classes and all who took the review classes did
so voluntarily.
"We felt that with them having to retake the
test this summer there should be a review and
there was no review," Waid said.
Originally open to students who did not pass
the EOC test the first time, it was open to oth-
ers who were interested,
"We had 40 slots and we were able to con-
tact 25 students," Waid said."'And 10 more
surprised us. It was a good turnout."
And, the reaction from the students who iook
the review was they feel like they are going to
tackle the retest. One student said he felt like
he learned more about algebra during the four
days this week than he did in the semester of

Alcohol law to sta


.e same


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Buying liquor on Sunday is not
going to get easier in Bartow.
That's what the consensus was at
Monday's City Council work session
when City Attorney presented his
look into the ordinance and specifi-
cally into the 14 percent requirement
in the ordinance.
"Virtually all the cities have similar
ordinances here," Sean Parker said.
"Lake Wales is unique."
In Lake Wales the ordinance on
liquor sales is the same for all seven
days. In all other cities buying liquor
on Sunday is different and the same
is true with the county's ordinance.
In Bartow, the ordinance does not
allow for liquor sales before noon on
Sunday, and all day Sunday liquor
that is more than 14 ounces is not
allowed for sale at all.
Howard Jeror, a Bartow resident,
appeared at the July 2 city com-
mission meeting asking that the


ordinance be changed. He said the
ordinance should be the same as
it is the other six days of the week,
saying that being able to buy liquor
and drinking it at home is safer than
drinking in bar on Sunday which is
allowed on Sunday.
In Bartow alcohol cannot be sold,
consumed, served or permitted to
be sold between 2-7 a.m. Monday
through Saturday. On Sunday alcohol
cannot be sold, consumed, served or
permitted to be sold between
2 a.m.-noon not between midnight-
7 a.m. Monday provided the bever-
ages containing more than 14 percent
alcohol by weight shall not be sold
for consumption off the premises
between the hours of 2 a.m. Sunday
and 7 a.m. the following Monday..
At that meeting commissioners
were not interested in changing
the ordinance but were interested
in finding but why 14 percent was
cited. Parker told them Monday his
research indicates this weight is used
because it targets hard liquor as


opposed to beer and wine. Beer and
wine products are usuallybetween
10 to 12 percent alcohol while hard
liquor is more than that and can go
up to 50 percent alcohol.
"The reason why this is Sunday
is that it is accurate that this is the
Sabbath day and dates back to when
most counties were dry and Sunday
eventually stayed the same," he said.
He said that some confusion over
the ordinance came forth in the
last meeting and though he looked
for typos or errors in the ordinance
he could not find any. He felt the
14 percent was the same since Bartow
passed the ordinance in 1999.
. While Jeror was not asking for the
change in the ordinance because of a
business interest his largest con-
cern was being able to buy beer on
Sunday for watching football games
at home Parker said there are
some business interest at stake. He
reminded commissioners that when
Ruby Tuesday's was looking to open
in Bartow it wanted to be able to sell


beer and wine on Sunday for the pur-
pose of having football games shown
at the restaurant. He said there was a
similar reason for changing the law in
Lake Wales, which it did in 2009.
"Lake Wales is unique and it may
have been done to attract more
events there," he said. "Businesses
are motivated-by it." But, he said,
there are plenty of people who don't
like it.
Commissioner Adrian Jackson
repeated what he said at the July 2
meeting that he has never heard any-
one approach him about changing
the ordinance and he sees no reason
to do so now.
Commissioner James Clement said
he has been approached since it
came up two weeks ago.
"I've heard from eight to 10 people
and I see no reason to change the way
it is. I think it works well," he said.
Huff and Jackson also felt there was
no reason to change the ordinance.
Lewis did not offer whether he was in
favor nor not in favor of changing it.

U.S. Sen. John McCain took to the Senate floor
Wednesday to issue a strongly wordlyv condemnation
of Rep. Michelle Bachmann for targeting a senior aide
to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with allegations
of ties! to Muslim extremist organizations, includ-
ing the Muslim Brotherhood. McCain said Huma
Abdelin, a Muslim who is married to former Rep.
Anthony Weiner, who is Jewish, "represents what is
best about America: the daughter of immigrants, who
has risen to the highest levels of our government on
Sthe basis of her substantial personal merit and her
abiding commitment to the American ideals that she
embodies so fully."
SThis is the type of "inside the Beltway" politics
we typically avoid, but Bachmann's allegations were
made in a series of letters sent in June and July to
federal security agencies and a fellow member of
Congress, one of which was co-signed by Rep. Tom
Rooney, who is running to represent parts of Polk
County in a newly drawn district.
In a statement released by Rooney on Thursday, the
congressman declined to join McCain and others in
condemning Bachmann's unsubstantiated charges,
and blamed the media for focusing on Abedin.
"As a member of the House Armed Services and


Our Viewpoint

Intelligence Committees, my top priority is ensur-
ing the security of our nation. The tragic events at
Fort Hood in 2009 proved that our enemies will go
to great lengths, including infiltrating and recruiting
members of our military, to commit acts of terror
against American citizens. I regret that Mrs. Abedin
has become the media focus of this story, because the
intention of the letters was to bring greater attention
to a legitimate national security risk," Rooney's state-
ment read.
Blaming the media for focusing on Ms. Abedin is
a time-tested political trick to shift attention. In this
case, it's unfortunate that Rooney used this tactic
rather than joining in McCain's condemnation of
Bachmann because the original June 13, 2012 letter
that Rooney co-signed with Bachmann and three
other members of Congress was far less offensive
than a subsequent that specifically targeted Abdelin.
Not that the original letter will join the ranks of
American statesmanship with Lincoln's Gettysburg
Address and Eisenhower's Farewell Address.


Addressed to the inspector general of the Office of
the Director of National Intelligence, it warned that
"the Muslim Brotherhood's mission in the United '
States is destroying western civilization from within"
and requested a review of "determined efforts by the
Muslim Brotherhood to penetrate and subvert the
American government as part of its civilization jihad'."
SIslamist extremism, with its signature "death to
America" mantra, is nothing new. America's global
footprint makes it the target of emnity from a range
of groups and nations, including al Qaeda and Iran.
The "shameful" thing about Bachmann's approach, as
former President Ronald Reagan aide Ed Rollins put
it, was its McCarthyesque quality. Rollins, who briefly
ran Bachmann's failed presidential campaign.
"Her unsubstantiated charge against Abedin, a
widely respected top aide to Secretary Hillary Clinton,
accusing her of some sort of far-fetched connection
to the Muslim Brotherhood, is extreme and dishon-
est," Rollins wrote in a Wednesday op-ed for Fox :
News.
We're deeply disappointed Rooney is unwilling to
join his fellow Republicans in condemning extremism
and the targeting of American citizens because of
their religious beliefs.


Letters to the editor

,The Older Americans Act is important


In 1965, the federal government
recognized the importance and value of
our senior citizens. They were chal-
lenged to find how to best serve elders
who worked so diligently and honor-
ably in their youth. Leaders recognized
that older persons are essential to the
fabric of our community. Our seniors
are active in a variety of capacities in
civic and other volunteer organizations,
and are a core constituency that can
be counted on faithfully in political
affairs. We need to ensure that they are
recognized for the contributions they
make and have adequate services to
meet their needs. The Older Americans
Act is slated for reauthorization in 2012.
The reauthorization would keep the Act


and the grants associated in effect until
2017.
The Older Americans Act
Amendments.of 2012 acknowledges
older Americans are the fastest growing
segment of society with nearly 10,000
baby boomers reaching age 65 daily
and recognizes 1 in 5 persons over age
65 exist on an income less than $8,000
per year. In addition, 1 in 50 in the
nation will serve as caregivers for older
persons.
The policy objectives of the Older
Americans Act focus on improving
life for all older persons by addressing
issues such as income at retirement,

Rooney wrong to back Bachmann on Muslim hunt











Bartow becomes Tree City, USA


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSL6W@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

On Monday, the city of Bartow got
a road sign, a plaque and a banner
from the Florida Division of Forestry
marking it as the 161st Florida city to
be named Tree City, USA.
"I've come here today to present to
you being a Tree City, USA that you
have earned," Steve Lloyd, a regional
coordinator with the Division, said,
remarking the program that started
in 1976 now has 3,500 tree cities
nationwide and 161 in Florida. "The
benefits of being in Tree City USA is
the benefit of having trees in the city."
The city had a ceremony the last
week of April marking that it became
a Tree City, USA, with a program
at the Solid Waste Division. In the
ceremony, the city gave away live
oak trees to at the event and Smokey
the Bear appeared as well as officials
from the city.
Lloyd said to become eligible for
the designation, a community has to
create a budget for trees that is based
on $2 per capital and a tree board. The
tree-board in Bartow is now a func-
tion of the Beautification Board.

Bartow Middle School

direction undecided


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
As of July 19, Polk County Schools
administrators had not decided what is
next for Bartow Middle School following
the resignation of its principal, Danny
Adams. He resigned after learning his
contract would not be renewed. The
decision by the Superintendent's Office
not to renew his contract was a result
of Bartow Middle School's drop in
grade, from a C to a D, in FCAT (Florida
Comprehensive AssessmentTest) score.
"Mr. Adams will be replaced by a new
principal, but at this point it is prema-
ture to say if it will be a transfer or a
new appointment by Dr. Nickell," stated
David Lewis, associate superintendent,
learning, in a email. "It would also be
premature to discuss or anticipate any
other personnel changes at this point."
Lewis, whd had been out of the -


district the past .
several days attending
meetings, thus not
available for direct
comment, did not
address whether other
situations existed)
at Bartow Middle
School that might Die
have contributed to David Lewis
Adams' contract not
being renewed. In addition, what kind
of improvements) Polk County Schools
wants obtained beyond raising the
"D" grade was also left unsaid.
Lewis did point out that Bartow
Middle School will remain under the
auspices of Polk County Schools.
"The only state-imposed interventions
are related to schools earning a grade of
"F," which are Lake Alfred Addair Middle
and Boone Middle," stated Lewis. The
latter is located in Haines City.

Despite C grade, school officials also see positives


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKEHOE@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
While still smarting from a district
grade of C this year, Polk Public Schools
administrators are encouraged by other
results and are looking ahead to im-
prove that standing.
"We are certainly not satisfied with a
district grade of C, but we also realize it
is based on a single measure within the
state's accountability system that has
undergone significant changes this year,"
David Lewis, associate superintendent of
learning, said. "However, we are encour-
aged by the positive results we are seeing
in other key areas that we believe will
lead to improvement in the future."
District grades are based on Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test results
and were released this month by the
-state Department of Education.
Polk had a C last year, as well, but had
Bs in 2010, 2009 and 2008, rising from a
C in 2007.
State standards were raised this year
with a more rigorous FCAT exam and


new grading
levels.
"While a district
gradesof C is cer-
tainly not where
we wish to stay, it
appears as though
many school
districts also re-
ceived that grade," b
Polk Schools
Superintendent
Sherrie Nickell
said in an email. Sherrie Nickell
We knew that
school grades would likely drop as the
bar has been raised. The game has
changed, and we must play by the new
rules. We are working hard to meet the
higher expectations. We're on it."
Nickell and the School Board had a
special meeting Wednesday morning
with consultant Tom Freijo to plan the
agenda for their strategic planning
meeting on Aug. 6.
At the meeting, board members and
the superintendent reviewed a first-year

report, based on goals set last year, com-
piled byWilma Ferrer, senior director of
assessment, accountability and evaluation.
The report noted that Hillsborough,
Osceola, Pasco and Pinellas also were
C districts this year. Of the 68 districts
(including Florida Virtual School) Polk
ranked 58th in reading 3+ and 60 in
math 3+, but in serving the lowest 25
percent of readers, Polk ranked 47, and
in math, 43, while neighboring counties


were below Polk County.
Nickell said this is a "big point" that
Polk is in the 40s with the lowest stu-
dents, better than Hillsborough County.
In reading learning gains Polk ranked
50 out of 68 districts, while it was num-
ber 58 last year. In math learning gains
Polk rose from 63 of 68 to 53.
While not happy being in the 50s,
"that's movement in the right direction,"
Nickell said.

COUNTY REPORT


Role of Florida women during Civil War often overlooked


SBy STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
After spending 10-plus years re-
S searching The Civil War, lracy Revels
made a declaration.
"I like to refer to Florida as the
Rodney Dangerfield of the Civil War,"
she said. "It gets no respect."
Revels announced this at Tuesday's
July 17 Lunch 'n' Learn Speaker
Series, at the start of her presentation,
S "Grander in her Daughters:Women
and the Civil War." Continuing, Revels
Mentioned an incident in which she
was challenged over which side of
the conflict Florida aligned itself. The
S person challenging her didn't believe
Florida seceded. But it did.
- "Florida was the third state to secede,
after South Carolina and Mississippi,"
she said. At the time of the outbreak of
the Civil War, Florida was the smallest
in population (estimated to be approxi-
mately 140,000), but it provided the
largest percentage-of eligible men who
served, more than one-tenth, approxi-
mately 15,000 males.
In her research of Florida women and
the roles theyfulfiled, Revels tongue-
in-cheek said "Apparently there was
only one woman" who lived in Florida
dtringWtheCivil War`.SusanrBradford
Eppes, It appeared that many years
after the Civil War ended, Epp.es.had
wiattena journal when she was.in her
70s forher children and grandchildren.
However, Eppes was in no way
representative all the women in
Florida. Revels said that the women -
Swere classified in two categories:
social status and race. That was further
Divided between Plante'r/'Elite s.: -. "
Crrcker, for white women, and slave/
frel black for black women. Among the
white women, there were those who
were Confederates and those who were
eitHer Unionists or the disillusioned.
S Of the latter, their ranks would often be
filled by those who at first supported
the Confederacy. However, as early
as 1862, as the war progressed and
S privation grew, these women wrote
their husbands begging, sometimes
demanding, the men come home.
Among her research, Revels-told the
more than 50 people who attended the
seminar that in many ways the Civil
War was a time of liberation for wom-
en. While they fulfilled roles expected
of women during that period of time,
they also entered into fields that prior
to the war they had been excluded
from. One example Revels gave was
the formation of all-female theatrical
troupes, as well as public orators. As an
interesting sidelight, those women were
considered engaging in promiscuous

PHTIU S BY STEVE- a ISTINER
Tracy Revels devoted 10 years researching the
role of women, espedally those from Florida,
during the Civil War.


behavior; the promiscuity being they
were performing or speaking to audi-
ences of both, men and women. L
SBlack slavewomen had a role during
I the Civil War. However, they had to use
'psychology, and in subtle ways, to be
'subversive and tmdermine the running
-of slave owner hQuseholds while the
males were away.
Revels shared a favorite tale of hers. It
concerned an elderly, severely crippled
black slave woman. :
"The dayshe learned about
Emancipation, she threw away her
crutches and walked away from the
plantation," said Revels. "Talkabout
psychological warfare." "
A number of free black women were
entrepreneurs and they went to where
Union soldiers were encamped. They
would cook meals, do laundry and
perform other services for the soldiers
for money.
A good portion of what Revels was '
able to uncover through her research,
she told her audience, came from read-
ing letters. The majority of the letters
were those written were by the men..;
They hadbeen saved by the females
Sof-the households. There were few
letters by women, in contrast,becaus%,..
often those letters were discarded. it.
made for an interesting challenge, said
Revels. But she wasn't complaining.
S"The one thing good about being a
historian is reading dead people's mail,"
.sh~e said, but added it was not always
an easy task. "You have not lived 'til you


try to decipher a cracker letter." Also
intriguing, she. said, was deciphering .
"code," especially in matters concern-
ing sexual intimacy. One example she
gave was how one couple wrote about
"taking morphine." The letter writer
wrote his wife';how the regiment had :
arrived at a town where there were
Smanybeautiful women. Quite a few of
the soldiers decided to "take morphine"
with the women.of that town. The writer
confessed that he was tempted, but.....
decided to refrain because he'd rather
"take morphine" with his wife. Revels
concluded the couple must have taken
a lot of morphine, because at the time
they already had five or six children, and
at least another after the war was over.
Revels wrapped up her presentation
bringing to everyone's attention that .
after the war, there was a lot of anger
and bitterness by the women. A Union
soldier wrote that it was not unusual
for he and other soldiers to be spat
upon, cursed at, and be the recipient of
further cruel behavior. Part of that, said
Revels was because of the 15,000 men
who had marched off to war, one-third
of them perished, another third were
physically maimed from their injuries,
and the remaining thlid psychologi-'-
cally scarred.
SHowever, the animosity the women
bore following the war's conclusion
stemmed from the fact that while the men
and their actions would be remembered,
the efforts and sacrifices the women had
made would be mostly forgotten.


Many topics of Florida women during the Civil
War were touched on by Tracy Revels during
her Lunch'n'Learn lecture.

Three from United Daughters of the Confederacy find lecture enjoyable


S By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM


Becky Reeves, of Winter Haven, and
her two friends, Carolyn McGraw and
Kay McGee, both of Lakeland, sat :
down to enjoy lu n ch at Palace Pizza
in downtown Bartow on Tuesday, July
17. They had just come from the Polk
SCounty Historical Association museum
across the street, having earlier at- "
tended this month's Lunch 'n' Learn
Speaker Series. The lecture they heard
was by Tracy Revels, who spoke about
the role of Florida women in the Civil
War. For Reeves, McGraw and McGee,
the lecture had significant meaning.
"All three of us are United Daughters


of the Confederacy," said McGraw.
SThe three were particularly proud of
the research Revels had done, which
Revels shared with the women at the
book signing that followed the lecture.
,"She told us she got a lot of her
information from UDC archives," said
Reeves. She added that Revel told them
much of what had been discovered was
the result of reading correspondence
between the men fighting and their
mothers and spouses. "The letters
really added a lot of insight."
The women said also enjoyable was
the PowerPoint presentation that ac-
companied Revel's lecture.
"It was a bonus," said McGee.
The three acknowledged some of


what they learned was new to them,
such as the different socio-economic
classes between white women and
even between black women.
"I enjoyed hearing about the dif-
ferent categories," said McGraw. For
Reeves, she enjoyed learning the
various activities Florida women did
during the Civil War. Those activities
included flag making; raising money in
unusual ways for example, theatri-
cal performances featuring all-female
casts; nursing wounded soldiers;
and burying the dead and serving as
mourners.
. The three learned that sometimes the
women didn't know what side soldiers
they were nursing fought on, because


quite often the uniforms were extremely
dirty and in tatters. Like other audience
members, Reeves, McGraw and McGee
reacted in sadness to a tale Revels told,
about a woman mourner, a woman who
had earlier lost a son.
"My son died for Virginia, This young
man died for Florida," said Revels
about the woman. "Let me kiss him for
his mother."
If there was anything lacking in
Revels' presentation, for Reeves, it
was no mention -of Native American
women.
"I was surprised that she didn't talk
about the Indians," said Reeves. "My
understanding is, there were some
Indians did fight."


Among the many interesting facts Tracy Revels told during her lecture was about Susan Bradford
Eppes. Revels was in her teens during the period of the Civil War .

Putnam: Si

By BILL KACZOR
AssocIAmDTPEss WRITER
Producers have voluntarily reduced sugar
content by 38 percent in chocolate and
strawberry flavored milk that's sold in most
of the state's schools, Florida's agriculture
chief said Tuesday.
Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam
also told the State Board of Education that
only low-fat and no-fat milk is offered in
those schools.
"We can knock two or three cubes
offyour chart," Putnam said during his
appearance before the panel at Broward
College in Fort Lauderdale. "We did reduce
the fat, the carbs andthe sugar without a
new rule." '
Even with the reduction, though, each**
serving of flavored milk contains about four
teaspoons of sugar.
Th%- boa'dbad discussed possible restric-
tions on sugary drinks, including flavored
milk, before the Legislature approved
Pumam's request to transfer its authority
over school nutrition to the Department

action yet on
soft drinks but that he expects the federal
government to soon propose national
rules.
School districts set their own policies for
soft drink vending machines in middle and
high schools. Most allow students to use the
machines only after regular school hours,
said Putnam spokesman Sterling Ivey.

Putnam said the reformulated flavored
milk is sold in 67 of Florida's 75 school
districts. The commissioner did not men-
tion, the milk and soft drink issues until
questioned by board member Roberto
"Bobby" Martinez. 'I
The Coral Gables lawyer had opposed
moving the school nutrition program;
He contended Putnam has a conflict of
interest because his focus is promoting
agriculture rather than looking out for
children's best interest. The commissioner,
though, insists he can do both.
The board's consideration of a sugar-
limiting rule drew opposition from milk
producers as well as some dietitians who
were worried children simply would stop
drinking milk if they no longer could get
flavored varieties.
Board member John Padgett, a former
school superintendent from KeyWest,
led the charge for limiting sugar. Padgett
told Putnam that many experts say the
expected federal soft drink rule will be too
weak and pointed out that some states
have imposed stricter regulations.


"My view is that there is a way forward
that involves offerings of 100 percent
juices, waters, flavored waters," Putnam
responded, noting schools rely onthe
vending machines as a revenue source.
"There are options out there that are
healthier."
Putnam, who has promised to make
periodic reports to the board, said new
federal nutrition guidelines being phased
in over a three-year span will encourage
menus geared to local harvests. That will
give Florida, with its year-round growing
seasons, a competitive advantage, he said.
"You're going to see an increase in the
number of fruits and vegetables on that
plate," Putnam said. "I'd rather eat our
fresh strawberries, our fresh citrus, our
fresh bluhieberries,-all the things that are
being grown here during the school-year
months as opposed to the challenge that,.._

Alligator drops by for unwelcome visit


By LAQUILL MASON
D .. DEMOCRAT INTERN
When Kaji Lightsey and her mother
returned to their home on Rohr Drive in-
Bartow Tuesday morning, they noticed
something in the carport that shouldn't
have been there.
It was a six-foot alligator that took
refuge inthe corner of the carport
behind a table and chairs.
Neighbors soon gathered and
confirmed it was a gator. They said
that a swampy area nearby was fed by
tributary of the Peace River.


Bartow Police School Resource Officer
Gwen Jones and Sgt. Hiram Saunders
came out and Jones stayed until a
trapper arrived from St. Cloud, which
took about 45 minutes.
Shirley Harris was concerned about
children in the neighborhood and
warned that people in the area should
be aware that gators have been seen
in the area. Last year two gators were
captured at the Rohr Home across the
street from Lightsey's house.
"We need gator trappers" closer to
Bartow, Amber White said. "There are
too many children around here and


they could get hurt."
: The gator, who had seemed quite
calm and content, put up a fight when
the trapper attempted to capture him.
The trapper said the gator was probably
about 5 years old and was six feet long.

An alligator keeps an eye on a photographer and
neighbors who were keeping an eye on him, or

Rohr Drive Tuesday morning. A trapper arrived
- later to remove the unwelcome visitor.

taking the class. Waid thinks this
is because of the activities Roberts-
and she did.
"We tried to make it exciting and
had some activities," she said.
One activity was a balloon pop
where students had to find the
problem, go back to their desk and
solve it. There was a box full of
torn-up paper in it and an algebra
problem inside it. There was a relay
race at the end of one of the days
and there was a scavenger hunt
where the problem had to be found
and solved.'
"'And the winner got 100 Grand ...
the candy bar, that is," Waid said.
"It was a lot more fun," said Chloe
Miller. "I learned a lot more than


I did this year. It'll go a long way
toward helping me on the retest."
Sarah Lucas felt the same way.
She said she thought she did poorly
on the test when she took it at the
end of the year. But, she said, tak-
ing the review not only helped her
after not thinking about'algebra
for a month or so, but she learned
quite a bit.
"I think it really helped me," she
said. "It helped refresh my memory.
I know I'll pass it."

oversight," Long said, emphasizing
that there had not been any prob-
lem with the use of the CRA's money.
However, he added that the idea' of
turning over the CRA board to the
City Commission, as some cities do,
was not something city commission-
ers favored doing.
S"They want to leave the CRA board
as it is," he said. "The Commission
has overriding confidence in the
board.!-
Long said having the executive
director report to the city manager
and the commission may help en-
sure the board is more in line with
the city's strategic plan and working
plan, which is the document that
is supposed to outline the city's
development for the next 25 years.
With the CRA in agreement with
the City Commission, Attorney.Sean
Parker said an interlocal agreement
can be worked out in a few weeks
that could outline the scope' and
duties of the executive director's
position and would help how to look
for a permanent person.
Still, this brought up questions
of how this job would be and what
the CRA board would do. CRA.
Chairman Alan Rayl questioned who
would pay for the position, the city


or the CRA.
"It's possible" the city would pay
for the position, "but the funding
could predominately be the CRA, or
it may be entirely the CRA," Long
said. "A person who carries out the
functions has more than a full-time
job, but the budgeting has not been
worked out."
When asked, Long said the City
Commission's position was the
executive director be accountable to
the city manager.
Board member Gloria Stidham she
was concerned that this could pose
a conflict of interest, as the person
could possibly be pulled in two
separate directions.
Parker said some of these issues
can be worked out in the interlocal
agreement. He said at Monday's
work session that an interlocal
agreement can say as little or as
much as the boards want it to say.
Parker added he saw no legal reason
why it wouldn't work.
"An example of this is, with our
building official who works for
Bartow, but provides work for other
cities," Parker said. He said it is like
consulting work, but the person is
a city employee. "It's not entirely
different from that."
Board member Rodney Hudnell
was concerned with who would
be in charge of hiring and firing a
person in this position if he or she is
a city employee.


"That would have to be worked
out in the agreement," Long said.
"If it's a' city employee I would have
to sign off, but we have to be on the
same page (to move forward with
this)."
Though there was mostly no
disagreement among the CRA board
members of the change, there was
some question as to any idea that
anything inappropriate had been
done.
"Though we're not elected, and
the use of tax dollars is a question,
but there has not been anything
done inappropriate with the mon-
ey," said Board member Timothy
Brooks. "There have been a lot of ac-
complishments in the last year, but
the communication can improve."
He said he was not sure he saw what
more could be done.
. "I don't think there is any 'impli-
cation' (of the misuse of money)",
Long said. "We're talking about a
philosophy of taxpayer dollars. The
overriding concern was focused on
continuing oversight." He said the
goal is only to have the city and CRA
head in the same direction.
Hudnell said while the CRA board
is supposed work at the behest of
Sthe City Commission and the board
should not act first, he said he's
heard the board was split on how to
proceed.
Commissioner James E Clement
said the board was not split on


the executive director's position
reporting to the city manager,
but it was split over whether, the
CRA board should be composed
of the City Commission. He said
Commissioners Pat Huff and Adrian
Jackso.n favored the city being the
board, while Commissioners Wayne
Lewis and Mayor Leo Longworth
preferred to keep the board as it
was; Clement said he was in the
middle.
"The split among the commis-
sioners was of the board," Long
said. "but they put that aside."
However, Long added that changing
the scope of the executive direc-
tor's job was supported by all of the
commissioners.
"I understand where we were, and
when we get an executive director,
we have to build bridges and re-
patch the relationship we failed at,"
Rayl said. "I think it's appropriate to
keep the board the way it is. I'd like
to see the board remain separate. I
see a value to that." .
When asked individually what
each board member thought about
changing the the executive director's
job, Brooks, Stidham and Tina Spath
said they were for it. Bohde said he
was for it but he added it is worth
exploring concerns Stidham brought
up, which Hudnell echoed. Board
member Gloria McCoy also was for
moving in that direction, but added
she'd like details first.


PICKING

Brett was fired from the position on
July 2 in a 4-2 vote. He'd worked out
a proposed budget that was shared
with the board at its June meeting;,
but which had not been finalized.
Each of those chosen most
of whom were present at this past
Thursday meeting will provide
board members with resumes by
.Friday, July 20.
CRA Board Chairman Alan Rayl
suggested the baord interview can-
didates for about five to 10 minutes.
Board members asked about the
qualifications they should look for
but the suggestion was just to find


someone to help them get them
through the budget process before
moving on to choosing a permanent
executive director.
Board member Rod Hudnell asked
what qualifications they should be
looking for in choosing an interim
director.
"I think we have to defer back
to the interview process from
last year," Rayl thought aloud.
"Especially if this is a temporary
position, it may not be all we are
looking for."
Board Member John Bohde sug-
gested the person they choose for
this job probably should not be giver
a leg up for the permanent job.
"My thought was kind of that
we want an interim director that
doesn't want the permanent


position and this may give that per- ways to
son an unfair advantage," he said. namics r

No major injuries following early Wednesday collision


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTRYDEMOCRAT.COM
Shortly before 9:30 a.m., Wednesday,
July 18, a two-car collision occurred on

Ford. Neither driver was seriously injured.
According to the investigating officer,
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper E.J.
Jackson, the driver of the first vehicle, Johin
Richard Soucie, 43, of 4612 Arcola Place,
Lakeland, was traveling southbound on
U.S. 98 and turned into the turn lane. Ann
SimmonsMarable, 68, of 14 Candlelight
Loop, Lake Wales, was traveling north-
bound, on the inside lane.
Soucie, driving a black 2007 Ford
Fusion, began turning from U.S. 98 to get
onto Ernest Smith Boulevard, the access
road to Bartow Ford. As he did, he failed
to yield the right-ofway, the FHP reports,
and crossed into the path of Marable, who
was driving a grey 2008 Hyundai Elantra.

Former Warner University

employee faces porn charges


STAFF REPORT
A former Warner University em-
, ployee Clinton Duane Pancake, 37,
was charged by the United States
Attorney's Office with receipt, distri-
bution, and transportation of child
pornography.
.If convicted on all counts, the
Riverview resident could face a
mandatory minimum sentence of five
years in federal prison and a maxi-
mum penalty of 40 years.
S The complaint alleges that Pancake
distributed 14 images of child por-
nography over the Internet to an
undercover agent in March, and also
alleges that Pancake admitted to
downloading child pornography over
the Internet, viewing it on his com-
puter, and deleting it.
According to Dr. Gregory V. Hall,
president of Warner University,
Clinton Duane Pancake did work
for the university in their student
life department, planning events for
students, including various clubs and
activities.
"He was released the first week in
: June for issues that were unrelated to
< the charges," said Hall, adding that
Warner University did not know about
any of the allegations at the time.
"We are working with the FBI and


their investigation. We are quite confi-
dent that anything alleged happened
apart from the institution ... what we
know at this point, we know of no rea-
son to believe that anything happened
on the campus at Warner."
A criminal complaint is only a formal
charge that a defendant has committed
a violation of the federal criminal laws,
and every defendant is presumed in-
nocent unless, and until, proven guilty.
This case was investigated by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation and
the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
It is another case brought as part of
Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide
initiative launched in May 2006 by
the Department of Justice to combat
the growing epidemic of child sexual
exploitation and abuse. Led by the
United States Attorneys' Offices
and the Criminal Division's Child
Exploitation and Obscenity Section,
Project Safe Childhood marshals
federal, state, and local resources to
locate, apprehend, and prosecute
individuals who sexually exploit
children, and to identify and rescue
victims.
