Fire destroys two buildings


Early Monday morning, at
approximately 6:54 a.m., the
Bartow Fire Department
responded to a commercial
structure fire at Gateway Insur-
ance Building on the corner of
Main and Wilson Streets in
downtown Bartow. No injuries
were reported early on, howev-
er, after fighting the blaze for
.several hours, a Polk County
firefighter was treated for heat
exhaustion.
According to Bartow fire-
fighter, Mark Olinger, upon


arrival at the site, Bartow fire-
fighters saw smoke, but no
flames, coming from the build-
ing's roof. However, when they.
entered the structure, they dis-
covered that it was ablaze, and
too hot and smoky to handle
from inside the building. Assis-.-
tance, in the form of mutual aid,'
from the Polk County Fire Ser-
vices Division and Lakeland,
Lake Wales, Mulberry, and Win-
ter Haven Fire Departments
arrived shortly thereafter.
The fire, which ultimately


destroyed two privately owned
commercial buildings, was
already in the attic of the first
building, and quickly spread
into the second. The buildings,
located in the. historic down-
town area, housed lots of office
files and also had lots of wood
in the interior construction,
allowing the fire to spread
quickly. A third building, just to
the west of the first two, was
separated by a 3-foot-wide gap
between the buildings, not
apparent from the street due to

favorites. The girls were able to
practice some basic stitches and
learn some parts of the sewing
machine. They used an old scout
T-shirt and transformed it into a
memory pillow. The scouts
signed each others pillows; some
using nicknames or catch phras-
es. All of which make reminisc-


ing so much fun! About 12 scouts
from Frostproof will be taking
their pillows on a week-long trip
to Camp Wildwood. The scouts
will be riding horses daily, along
with swimming, hiking and
crafts. They will come back a lit-
tle tired, but will have made new
friends and more memories.


the building's facade, that acted
as a small firebreak and actually
assisted firefighters in prevent-
ing the spread of the fire to that
structure. Firefighters worked
diligently, and successfully, all
morning to protect it and other
buildings in the area.
Several businesses occupied
the two destroyed buildings,
where as many as 75 people
work. However, since the fire
started so early in the morning,
no employees were reported to
be in the buildings. As a precau-


'tionary measure, critical
records were removed from the
Polk County Property Apprais-
er's Buildings and the Polk
County Historical Museum.
However, there was no dam-
age to those structures.
In a display of true coopera-
tion and teamwork, firefighters
from several jurisdictions
worked side-by-side to battle
the blaze minimizing property
damage to the extent possible -
and ensuring the safety of citi-
zens who work in the area.

Cubs Scouts
go bowling
Cub Scout Pack 169 took a
break from working on their
'badge books and community
service to go bowling. The scouts


took a trip to Kegel Bowling Alley
in Sebring. They paused for a
moment in the Pro Shop to look
around and take a picture, but it
was all business on the lanes.
Most of the boys bowled in the
70's 100 range, but best of all
was their form. Some tried the


Fred Flintstone twinkle-toes
approach, and some just ran. If
you are interested in joining Cub '
Scouts during the summer

TALLAHASSEE Attorney
'General Charlie Crist
announced Friday, June 3,
2005 the conviction of an
Orange County resident on 15
counts of using a computer to
seduce a child over the inter-
net. Walter Hammel, 52, was
arrested when he traveled to
Polk County to meet a young
boy for a pre-arranged liaison,
unaware that the person with
whom he communicated over
the internet was an undercov-
er law enforcement officer.
The case was prosecuted by
the Attorney General's Office
of Statewide Prosecution,
which has specific jurisdiction
to prosecute cases involving
section 847.0135(3), Use of a
Computer to Seduce a Child
over the Internet.


"Words cannot describe
the atrocity that could have
taken place here," said Crist.
"The insidious nature of this
crime is that this man used the
internet to invade a home and
a family in order to lure his vic-
tim to him. It is imperative that
we continue.to fight to protect
our children from these mon-
sters, and I commend the jury
on reaching its verdict."
The case began in October
2003 when an officer working
with a Central Florida task
force on internet crimes
against children monitored an
internet chatroom. Hammel
struck up an online conversa-
tion with the agent, who he
believed was a 13-year-old boy
named "Larry." Over a period
of time, Hammel attempted to


lure "Larry" to his home in
Orange County, and at one
point sent pornographic
images of young boys. After a
month of online conversa-
tions, Hammel traveled to a
Wal-Mart in Haines City
"intending to pick up "Larry"
and take him to his home in
Winter Garden.
Hammel was arrested
when he approached a decoy
arranged by agents.
Among the agencies
involved in the joint investiga-
tiin were the Polk County
Sheriff's Department and the
Eagle Lake Police Department.
Sentencing is scheduled for
July 22 in Bartow. Hammel,
who is an Austrian national,
faces up to 75 years in prison.

Love bugs are back
Once again it's love bug season in South Florida. The
insects, which mate in flight and seem to be attracted to
area highways, are a nuisance to motorists. The bugs are
native to Central American and slowly migrated to Flori-
da over the past 50 years. They have a six-month lifecy-
cle and are often seen in May and September. Lovebug
larvae eat decaying vegetative matter. An adult love bug
only lives about 72 hours. They emerge from their
cocoons, mate, lay eggs and die.

ding and baby shower of their son

ter-in-law Jessica L. Whidden of
Arcadia to be held at Jessica's par-
ent's home Lynn and Buddy
Whidden of Nocatee at 5 p.m. on

Law helps
homeowners
This year's 60-day session cre-
ated tougher laws for child sex
offenders, across-the-board tax
relief, and reforms to the state's
Medicaid program and growth-
management laws. Equally
important were insurance meas-
ures approved by state lawmak-
ers.
With the start of what is
expected to be another active hur-
ricane season, Governor Jeb Bush
signed into law on June 1 a meas-
ure that provides several new pro-
tections to Florida homeowners.
First, the law prohibits insur-
ance companies from "non-
renewing" or canceling policies
of hurricane victims until 90 days
after the completion of storm
repairs. This effectively eliminates
the practice of companies cancel-
ing their policyholders and leav-
ing them at risk of being uninsur-
able.
Another provision requires
insurance companies to pay
replacement costs up front with-
out making homeowners jump
through additional hoops to get
the money owed to them for
repairs.
These two provisions were the
source of much frustration
among homeowners I spoke with
at town hall meetings around the
state.
But last year's storms also
prompted a clear demand from
storm victims for simpler, easy-to-


understand insurance policies.
The new law now requires
insurance companies to offer a
checklist that insurers must fill out
so policyholders can see what is
and what is not covered, along
with a simple outline of their cov-
erage.
It also requires insurers to offer
a range of hurricane deductibles
and to disclose the cost that could
result from each choice, including
impact on premiums and out-of-
pocket expenses. The law also
expedites the claims process by
requiring an insurance company
to notify the insured of the
progress of the claim within 14
days.
These changes will help
homeowners better navigate
complicated insurance policies
and put homeowners on a more
equal footing with their insurer.
Under the new law, Floridians
will also have the opportunity to
purchase up to 50 percent in "law
and ordinance" coverage to help
rebuild their storm-damaged
homes to meet new and more
stringent building codes.
Other important changes in
the new law include requiring a
public hearing for any rate
requests that exceed 15 percent;
establishing a low-interest loan
program to help homeowners
retrofit their homes and reduce
hurricane losses; and charging
the Auditor General with conduct-
ing an operational audit of Citi-
zens Property Insurance Corpora-
tion, the state's insurer of last
resort.
Certainly, the unprecedented
storm season of 2004 may reveal
more changes are necessary to
help Floridians weather future
storms. This new law is another
step in the right direction and will
position Floridians to be better
protected and prepared for future
hurricane seasons.

Stay safe when lightning strikes


This time of year, thunder-
storms are common. Lightning is
just part of life in Florida, and the
accompanying hazards should be
taken seriously
Florida holds the record for the
most people killed by lightning
each year. Between 1990 and 2003,
of the 756 persons killed by light-
ning in the United States, 126 per-
sons were in Florida. Texas, which
ranked number two in lightning
deaths, reported 52 fatal lightning
strikes in that same period.
While hurricanes may grab the
headlines, lightning kills more peo-
ple in Florida than any other weath-
er-related phenomena.
According to the National
Weather Service, no place is com-
pletely safe during a lightning
storm. (Lightning can even strike
people who are indoors.) Some
places, however, are safer than oth-
ers.
The safest place to be during a

storm, according to the National
Weather Service, is a large,
enclosed building. Once inside a
building, stay away from electrical
appliances and plumbing fixtures.
Lightning can travel a great dis-
tance through power lines or
phone lines. It is generally consid-
ered safe to use a cordless phone,
but the experts advise against using
a regular phone during a lightning
storm.
Open buildings, such as picnic
shelters are not considered safe.


School board plans


Polk County School Board
meetings for June and July are as
follows:
*Tuesday, June 14: The school
board will hold a work session
from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. A school
board meeting follows the work
session beginning at 1:30 p.m. TWo
public hearings will begin no earli-
er than 2 p.m. during the board
meeting. One public hearing will
consider proposed changes to
school district policy manual in the
areas of the school board, the
superintendent and district admin-
istration, human resources and
business operations. Another pub-
lic hearing will consider proposed
changes to the elementary and sec-


ondary codes of conduct. The
work session will be held in the
superintendent's conference room
of the district administrative office.
The school board meeting and
public hearings will take place in
the auditorium of the district office.
Agendas of the work session and
school board meeting are available
by contacting JoAnne Clanton, 534-
0521.
Thursday, July 21: The school
board will meet at 8:30 a.m in a
special board meeting concerning
the budget. The special board
meeting will be held in the auditori-
um of the district administrative
office. Information: Ed Flood, 534-
0539.


Metal buildings, such as storage
sheds, are also unsafe.
If no suitable building is nearby,
an enclosed vehicle such as an
automobile, van or school bus can
be a good alternative. Open vehi-
cles, such as convertibles, are not
safe.
Inside the vehicle, roll up the
windows and avoid touching the
ignition, radio or doors until the
storm is over. Should lightning
strike the vehicle, the vehicle's
metal shell will conduct the light-
ning around and away from you.
(It's only a myth that the rubber
tires provide insulation.)
Lightning can strike more than
ten miles away from the center of a
thunderstorm. If you hear a storm
approaching, time the delay
between lightning and the thunder.
If there are 30 seconds or less
between the sound of the thunder
and the flash of the lightning, you
are within striking range of the


meetings
Tuesday, July 26: The school
board will meet from 12:30 to 3:30
p.m. in a work session. A school
board meeting follows the work
session beginning at 5 p.m. A pub-
lic hearing on the budget will begin
no earlier than 6 p.m. during the
board meeting. The work session
will be held in the superintendent's
conference room of the district
administrative office. The board
meeting and public hearing will be
held in the auditorium of the district
administrative office. Agendas on
the work session and board meet-
ing are available by contacting
JoAnne Clanton. Budget informa-
tion is available from Ed Flood.

lightning and should immediately
seek shelter.
Counting the seconds, however,
does not always mean you are safe
because lightning can sometimes
strike beyond the audible range of
the storm. That's why it's important
to check weather reports.
Most people who are struck by
lightning are not hit directly. More
often, they are struck by current
running through the.ground. This is
called "side flash."
The National Weather Service
provides the following tips for treat-
ing lightning strike victims:
Call 9-1-1 immediately. Pro-
vide information about location
and about the lightning strike.
If the victim is the open, care-
fully move the victim to a safer spot
so the rescuers will not be in dan-
ger.
If the victim is not breathing
andr has no pulse, start mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation and CPR.


2005 shelter maps available


BARTOW Hurricane season
began its six-month run on June 1,
2005. In preparation, Polk County
Tourism and Sports Marketing
(PCTSM) and Polk County Emer-
gency Management (PCEM) have
once again partnered to produce
the "Polk County Public Shelters"
map. This emergency shelter map
is designed to assist evacuees in
finding shelter during an impend-
ing storm.
"We've made some changes to
the 2005 map, based on lessons
learned last year", says Mark Jack-
son, Director of Tourism~rd'Sports
Marketing for Polk County, "Prior to
Hurricane Charley, we mainly con-
sidered the shelter map a tool for
coastal evacuees, but three direct
hits made us realize that this map is
also an important item for Polk
County residents."
In the event a hurricane threat-

take inventory of available accom-

Tower
LAKE WALES Photograph-
er Anne Malatesfa will exhibit
"Fire & Flowers: Abstractions of
Nature" at Historic Bok Sanctu-
ary's Education and Visitor Cen-
ter through July 28. Viewing the
exhibit is free with general Sanc-
tuary admission from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. daily. The public is invited
to a free opening reception on
Friday, June 10, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The entrance gate will close at 7
p.m.
Malatesta, who was born and
raised in Virginia, lived around
the United States and Europe,
until she fell in love with the
"wild Florida" and decided to
stay. An avid amateur photogra-
pher for more than twenty years
and a biologist by trade, Malates-
ta is currently an ecologist on
the Lake Wales Ridge. Malates-
ta's volunteer work for the
Nature Conservancy in the early
1990s opened opportunities for
her to photograph some of the
Ridge's rare species as well as
the prescribed fires that help
shape most of Florida's ecosys-
tems.
"My interest in photography
intensified when high resolution
digital cameras became more
available in 1999. I was able to
produce, crop, print and manip-
ulate my photographs using
Photoshop and a high-quality
photo printer that prints archival
quality color and lightfast
prints," says Malatesta. Technol-
ogy has given her the freedom to
explore photography, resulting
in a more abstract style. Malates-
ta keeps a traditional Nikon F4
loaded with black and white film
and macro lenses for unexpect-
ed photo opportunities.


modations and relay the informa-
tion to PCEM and area lodging facil-
ities. This information is critical in
helping evacuees find available
accommodations. PCEM also uses
this data to decide when and
where to open shelters, once area
accommodations reach capacity.
Evacuees can then be directed to
open shelters using the "Polk
County Public Shelters" map,
which lists shelter locations on one
side and directions to those shelters
on the other. The map also pro-
vides important telephone num-
bers and tips on how to prepare for
an emergency, as well as recom-
mendations on items to include in
a "72-Hour Survival Kit".
It should be noted that not every
shelter may be opened during a
particular storm, so evacuees are


advised to confirm that a specific
shelter has been activated prior to
going there.
Area lodging facilities, and
chambers of commerce, have
received a supply of maps to keep
on hand for distribution to evac-
.uees. Publix Super Markets has
partnered with PCTSM to distribute
the shelter map for the last four
years and will continue to do so in
2005.

Tips help ensure a safe summer


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
encourages summer safety during
this heavy vacation season. By
making wise choices to protect
your skin, food and overall health,
you and your family can have fun in
the sun while staying out of harm's
way.
"While Floridians and visitors
travel throughout the state, being
knowledgeable of safety tips can
drastically decrease the number of
summer related injuries and acci-
dents," says DOH Secretary John
O. Agwunobi, M.D., M.BA., M.P.H.
"Playing it safe is the theme we
want Floridians to remember and
employ this summer."
Food safety
Few things in life are better than
a summer barbecue, and no barbe-
cue is complete without following
the proper food handling proce-
dures below:
SAlways wash your hands with
warm, soapy water before and
after handling food.
Keep marinating foods refrig-
erated and boil the used marinade
sauce before applying to cooked
food. Also avoid putting cooked
food on any plate that previously
held raw food.
Use a meat thermometer to
ensure that food reaches a safe
internal temperature. Beef should
be cooked to at least 1600F and
chicken to 1700F. Fish is done when
the meat is opaque and flakes easi-
ly.
Pre-heat the coals on the grill
for 20-30 minutes.
Pack plenty of ice or freezer
packs to maintain a constant cold
temperature.
Sun safety
Precautions must be taken to
avoid sunburn and skin injuries.
Exposure to the sun's ultra-violet
(UV) rays is the leading environ-
mental factor in the progression of
skin cancer. Liberal use of sun-
screen with a sun protection factor
(SPF) of 15 or greater is recom-
mended to prevent sunburn. Other
ways to protect yourself from sun-
burn are:
Seeking shade under shelter
such as a tree or umbrella,
Covering up with light-weight
clothing,
Wearing a hat to protect your
face, scalp, neck and ears, and
Wearing sunglasses that deter
UV rays (also necessary when
using indoor tanning facilities).
Individuals particularly sensi-


tive to the sun, may want to avoid
exposure between the peak sun
hours of 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM (even
on cloudy days).
Puffer fish
Florida's seafood is among the
best in the country, but take care to
identify and avoid poisonous fish.
Eating puffer fish, commonly
known as blowfish, can cause saxi-
toxin poisoning. Saxitoxin has no
taste, color or smell and cannot be
destroyed by cooking or cleaning.
Symptoms of saxitoxin poisoning
include tingling, burning, numb-
ness, drowsiness, incoherent
speech, difficulty breathing and in
severe cases, death. Also avoid
locally harvested shellfish during
red tide occurrences.
Swimming safety
When enjoying our waters,
Floridians and those visiting Florida
should engage in water sports that
are safe for all involved while taking
note of marine life and harmful
algal blooms.
Marine life includes naturally
occurring plant-like algae like blue-
green algae (cyanobacteria) and
red tide, which can be present in
the open ocean, bays, lagoons and
freshwater environments. DOH
recommends avoiding areas with
obvious algal blooms as contact
may cause skin rash, runny nose
and burning eyes. However, symp-
toms are temporary and last only
for a few hours.
For more information or to
report symptoms related to red
tide, blue green algae exposure or
puffer fish consumption, call the
toll-free Marine Toxin Hotline at 1-
888-232-8635. This hotline is oper-
ated by the Florida Poison Control
Center.
An example of an unsafe water
sport is teak surfing. Teak surfing
involves swimmers being towed
through the water while hanging
on to a powerboat's teak swim
platform. The threat of carbon
monoxide is present because mov-
ing boats produce exhaust fumes.
Carbon monoxide is a highly toxic
gas that has no smell or taste. Inhal-
ing carbon monoxide causes the
teak surfer to lose consciousness,
become submerged in the water
and quickly drown. Many surviving
victims have sustained permanent
brain damage.
'Mosquitoes
DOH officials continue to stress
the "5 D's" for prevention:
DUSK and DAWN (avoid


being outdoors when mosquitoes
are seeking blood, for many
species this is during the dusk and
dawn hours).
DRESS (wear clothing that
covers skin).
DEET (use mosquito repel-
lents including DEET [N, N diethyl-
metatoluamide] on skin. You can
add to your protection by applying
a repellent directly to your clothing
when you are outside). Keep in
mind, DEET is not recommended
for children younger than 2 months
old. Instead, avoid exposing babies
to mosquitoes.
DRAINING (check your home
to rid it of standing water in which
mosquitoes can lay their eggs).
Elimination of breeding sites is
one of the keys to prevention.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito
Breeding Sites
1. Clean out eaves, troughs and
gutters.
2. Remove old tires or drill holes
in those used in playgrounds to
drain.
3. Turn over or remove empty
plastic pots.
4. Pick up all beverage contain-
ers and cups.
5. Check tarps on boats or other
equipment that may collectwater.
6. Pump out bilges on boats.
7. Replace water in birdbaths
and pet or other animal feeding
dishes at least once week.
8. Change water in plant trays,
including hanging plants; at least
once a week.
9. Remove vegetation or
obstructions in drainage ditches
that prevent the flow of water.
Black henna tattoos
Other skin injuries can be sus-
tained by getting black henna tat-
toos or.body piercing. Henna is a
coloring made from a plant extract
that has not been approved by the
US Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) for skin application. Some of
the henna contains a product
called p-phenlyenediamine (PPD),
Which may cause allergic reactions
like intense itching, redness,
swelling and even scarring at the
tattoo site. Persons experiencing
these symptoms should seek
immediate medical attention and
report the instance to the local
health department. Body piercing
poses health risks if done with
unclean instruments. Unclean
instruments could be contaminat-
ed with Hepatitis B or C, diseases
which may severely impair liver
function. Also, an abnormal over-
growth of scar tissue, called a
keloid, can form.


Poison control


DOH joins the Florida Poison
Information Centers in encourag-
ing individuals to take an active role
in safeguarding children from
potential dangers that involve prod-
ucts commonly found in every
home. This focus on poison-proof-
ing your home is part of the annual
campaign to educate the public on
the dangers and prevention of acci-
dental poisonings. Almost one mil-
lion children are exposed to a
potential poison each year.
Children under the age of five
are particularly vulnerable to these
accidental events due to their natu-
ral curiosity about the world
around them. What they see, touch
and reach is generally put into their
mouths.
Almost 60 percent of all calls to
the poison information center
involve exposures in one of the fol-
lowing five groups: Aceta-
minophen is used as an aspirin
substitute, pain reliever and fever
reducer and is often found in chil-
dren's medication. Toxic symp-
toms are delayed and can cause
profound effects, particularly liver
damage. Ethanol-containing prod-
ucts include mouthwashes, per-
fumes, colognes, hand sanitizers
and adult cold medications. Toxic
symptoms include sleepiness, drop
in blood sugar and shallow breath-
ing. Common hand soaps and
detergents may cause upset stom-
ach and may cause persistent vom-
iting, diarrhea ard even dehydra-
tion if ingested. Automatic
dishwasher detergent may be caus-
tic. Hypochlorites include bleach,
pool chemicals and supplies and
cleaning products. Toxic symp-
toms can include irritation to the
mouth and stomach, and potential
burns to the mouth, throat and
esophagus. Hydrocarbon contain-
ing products include gasoline,
kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid,
automobile products and lamp oil.
Toxic symptoms may include vom-
iting, and if the product enters the.
lungs, fever, coughing, shortness of
breath, wheezing or chemical
pneumonia can occur.
For poisoning emergencies, call
the Poison Information Center; toll
free 24 hours a day, at 1-800- 222-
1222 (Voice/TDD); calls will be
connected based on geographic
region. The healthcare profession-
als at the Center will immediately
respond to poison emergencies
and answer poison-related ques-
tions about medications, house-
hold products and other potentially
dangerous substances:

WIU Volleyball
camp offered
The Webber International
University women's volleyball
program will be hosting an
indoor/outdoor/conditioning
volleyball camp. The camp will
be held at WIU in Babson Park
on June 22 to June 24.
Camp athletes will play sever-
al mini tournaments on both
indoor and beach courts.
Between games we will be con-
ditioning and eating healthy


meals. Players will stay in dorm
rooms and will participate in fun
functions at night. The coach's
goals are to completely exhaust
the athletes in a fun and exciting
way, while teaching them good
volleyball and conditioning
skills. The cost of the camp will
be $150.; this cost covers dorm
rooms, meals and three days of
intense training. Should an ath-
lete need transportation to and
from the airport, we can provide
this service for a reasonable fee.

coach Edfors at: webbervolley-

VA~"~;f Plan for mural












"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court justice Felix Frankfurter.


We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.


We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot
and a return of the values of the American Revolution.


How are we doing?


Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or call-

ing your editor.
