Florida Flywheelers
Christmas Village a success
Rainy weather didn't stop Frostproof resi-
dent Bernice Calabritto and good friend
Arizona Zimbro from enjoying the Florida
Flywheelers Christmas Village last Friday
night. The event was held for two consec-
utive weekends with over 1,000 attending
the event on Dec. 14. This little Victorian
style home was just one of many decorat-
ed at the Florida Flywheelers Christmas
Village. Admission is new unwrapped toys,
canned goods or a monetary donations or
all three. The admission proceeds were
divided equally between the Frostproof
Care Center, Fort Meade and Avon Park
agencies to aid families in need during the
holiday season.

Family struggles to find normalcy

while burn victims fight for recovery


By BRIAN ACKLEY
News Editor
Delores Demaria spends
most of her days now try-
ing to find some level of
"normal".
But that is an almost
Herculean task, when you
consider her sister-in-law
Yvonne Bustamante lies in
an Orlando hospital with
severe burns over almost
90 percent of her body, and
much of the caring for the
victim's two young boys
falls to Demaria and her
family. '
And six days after a bru-
tal attack on Bustamante,
26, and her co-worker
Juanita "Jane" Luciano at
the Headley Nationwide
Insurance office in Lake
Wales, Bustamante's chil-
dren Damon, 8 and Darion,
4, are starting to realize
that mommy is not around
any more. And of course,
Christmas is now less than
a week away.
"Damon actually wrote
a little note ," Demaria said


(Photo by Kathy Leigh Berkowitz)
As a community mourns the tragic loss of little Michael
Bustamante, Jr., reminders such as these are left behind at
the scene of the Lake Wales crime.


Tuesday afternoon, clutch-
ing and reading from the
precious piece of paper.
"Dear Santa. Please make
my Mommy feel better."
Normal never seemed so
far away. Sometimes twice
a day their father James
(Demaria's brother) makes
the round trip from
Orlando Regional Medical
Center to Lake Wales.


Without being able to
work, even the cost of gas is
an expense that can be dif-
ficult to bear.
"Now, it's waking up
from the dream and it
(reality) is still there,"
Demaria continued. "Right
now what we have to think
about is the kids. We're try-
ing to take their minds off
the stuff. We took them to


the lake yesterday and got
them riding on their bikes.
And James came home last
night and spent the night
with them. And that's help-
ful for them, and he calls
them every day. If he's not
with her, he comes home
and is with them. But he's
trying to be with her as
much as he can. He doesn't
want to let her go."
Demaria indicated that
Bustmante is largely in a
state of drug induced
unconsciousness, but is
unsure what the next step
will be. The couple has
been together for 11 years.
"It's so hard to say,
because she's so bad," she
added. Demaria indicated
that her sister-in-law has
already had at least three
surgeries so far. She did not
have an update on
Luciano, but believes her
injuries are perhaps just
slightly less severe. She

Bullet led

cops to

solve

murders

By BRIAN ACKLEY
News Editor
By 3 o'clock last Friday
morning, Lake Wales Police
Lieutenant Joe Elrod had
already put in a 20-hour day.
Members of the Polk
County Sheriff's Office
Crime Scene Investigation
unit were finally packing up
from 124 Central Ave., where
almost 12 hours earlier Elrod
was one of the first law
enforcers to arrive at the
Nationwide Insurance
Office.
He was also one of the
first to talk to critically
burned Juanita "Jane"
Luciano, who had staggered
to the nearby Havana Nights
restaurant. Despite her
gruesome and life-threaten-
ing injuries, she was able to
give Elrod not only the
description of her assailant,
but most importantly a
name as well: Leon Davis Jr.
And, as the robbery and
appalling assault details-
unfolded that Thursday
afternoon, more than one
law enforcer began to
believe the Lake Wales
crime, and the cold blooded
killings of two gas station
workers in Lake Alfred bare-
ly six days prior, might just
have more in common than
the grisly nature of the
attacks.
As many as a dozen Polk
investigators repeatedly,
painstakingly, methodically
combed and recombed the
crime scene. Unlike televi-
sion, such cases don't conve-
niently wrap themselves up
in 60 minutes or less. But by
3 a.m., their work was appar-
ently done.
Still, there was'one vital
detail left unresolved.
Police knew that Davis
had fired shots, probably
three, while committing the
robbery, yet not even one
slug could be found at the
crime scene. With 21 years in
the police business all

THE STORY
SO FAR
MORE CHARGES
Leon Davis Jr., 30, is being
held without bail in the Polk
County Jail following a rob-
bery attempt Thursday, Dec.
13 at the Headley Nationwide
Insurance office at 124
Central Avenue in Lake
Wales. Yvonne Bustamante,
26 and Juanita "Jane"
Luciano, 23, remain in critical
condition at Orlando Regional
Medical Center after suffering
severe bums in the alleged
robbery. Police say the sus-
pect threw an accelerant on
the two and then lit them on
fire. A third victim, Brandon
Greisman, was shot in the
nose coming to the aid of the
victims. He underwent recon-
structive surgery and was out
of the hospital this weekend.
* Because of a slug recov-
ered at the Lake Wales crime
scene, Davis 'is also the man
responsible for the brutal mur-
der of two B/P Convenience
store employees," said Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd
over the weekend. Police said
ballistic tests confirmed the
same weapon was used in
both incidents, and that the
physical description of the
suspect.was the same in both.
INFANT DIES
* Luciano was more than five
month's pregnant. Her baby
was delivered in an emergen-
cy procedure Thursday night,
but died early Sunday mom-
ing. Police this week are con-
sulting with the state attorney
general's office about further
charges in that death, but
have not made a final deter-
mination on that. Davis has
already been charged with
three counts of attempted
murder, among other charges.
FAMILY, COMMUNITY
SUPPORT
Family members spoke
Monday to thank the commu-
nity members for their prayers
and support.
A special community prayer
service will be held at noon on
Thursday, Dec. 20, near the
crime site. A special trust fund
has been set up to aid the vic-
tim's families with expenses.

Bullet from crime scene leads cops to solve earlier murder case, from PageA1


with the Lake Wales PD -
instinct can be as impor-
tant as all the classroom
training that officers go
through.
Elrod's told him to can-
vass the back of the insur-
ance office one last time.
That's where both victims,
Luciano and Yvonne
Bustamante escaped, and
where Davis fired at Lake
Wales city worker Brandon
Greisman who lives nearby
and was coming to aid the
two victims.
At that moment the
watch commander didn't
know specifically where to
look, he did know exactly
what he was looking for,
and perhaps most impor-
tantly, precisely why he
was doing it.
"Let's put it this way, we
knew.it was very important
that we find a slug from
that gun," Elrod said.
Indeed it was. The bullet
was not only further evi-
dence in the Lake Wales
attack, it provided defini-
tive evidence that the same
gun was used to kill two BP
station attendants on Dec.
7, according to Polk County
Sheriff Grady Judd, who
announced Saturday that
bullet projectiles from both
crime scenes had been
forensically matched by
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement experts. Law
enforcers are still seeking a
Dan Wesson .357 revolver
believed to have been used
by Davis at both crimes,
they said. Up to $5,000 is
being offered for the recov-
ery of the murder weapon.
"We've looked high and
low, from Lake Wales to
Winter Haven. He could
have pitched it anywhere,"
Lake Wales Police Chief
Herbert Gillis said.
It didn't take police long


to realize that the same
man was allegedly involved
in the two brutal robbery
attempts.
"It was a horrendous
crime, both of them.
Everything fit. And there
was a possibility... It was a
big thing that the tie would
be a ballistic report," Elrod
added. "It takes a certain
kind of individual that can
shoot people in the face,
and two in the same prox-
imity, that is very rare."
Elrod's partner Lt. James
Foy actually discovered the
telltale bullet hole in the
back of the insurance
building, and Polk investi-
gators came back to the
scene, deploying a laser
device that tracked the
projectile's potential path.
"We were saying the guy
shot three times, so we said
the bullets had to have
gone somewhere," he
added. "All we did was go
back to where supposedly
he was standing when he
shot and sort of imagined
what went down. We were
just lucky, we didn't do any-
thing great or anything, but
it's the train of thought you
grow into being a cop for a
long time."
"When they (Polk
County) turned it over to
them, Lt. Foy and Elrod
were committed, fanatical,
about finding a projectile,"
Lake Wales Police Chief
Herbert Gillis said. Now
into his 21st straight hour
on the job, Elrod wasn't
going to leave any spot
unexamined.
"We were digging in
flower beds and everything
else. If a chip of wood was
out of place, we would
look," he said. "My wife
tells me sometimes that 1
look so much into things
that 1 might miss the sirn

The City of Lake Wales honored one of its own Tuesday night as Brandon Greisman, holding plaque, was cited for his heroic efforts
in last Thursday's brutal attack at the Nationwide Insurance Office on Central Avenue. He works for the city's streets department.
Greisman, who lives near the scene of the crime, rushed to aid two burn victims, and was shot at by suspect Leon Davis Jr. The bul-
let grazed his nose after he turned his face at the last second before the trigger was pulled. Presenting the award were Mayor Alex
Wheeler, left, and Police Chief Herbert Gillis. A large crowd in the city commission chamber room gave Greisman a long, loud and
heartfelt standing ovation. The plaque's inscription read, "Presented to Brandon Greisman. On Thursday, December 13, 2007, a
senseless, horrific attack was committed on two innocent citizens. You heard the cries and without hesitation you rushed into harm's
way to help. And because of your effort to give aid, you too were brutally attacked. This plaque is given in recognition and apprecia-
tion and than ks to you for your selfless act of heroism."


pie stuff sometimes. And,
you know, is that good or
bad? I guess for my job, it's
good." There were other
contributing factors in
making the early morning
find. For example, respon-
ders from the Lake Wales
Fire Department, just steps
away from the scene, knew
it was no ordinary fire call
right from the start.
"To have the crime
scene maintained as good
as it was a miracle in itself,"
Elrod added. "The firemen
were above being excep-
tional. They hacked. their
way. through the ceiling to
put out the fire, and they
did that to try to preserve
the scene. They were
meticulous also. 1 remem-
ber one of the firemen
coming out and talking to


me and saying, 'It's out. We
sprayed as little water as
we could and did as little
damage as we could.' They
came in, did the job, and
did it right. The whole sys-
tem was an example of
everybody working togeth-
er great. It was amazing."
Support from Polk County,
including their CSI unit
and two search helicopters,
was invaluable as well. "I
admire them for their pro-
fessionalism. They did a
fantastic job. When that big
truck arrives you say all
right, it's going to be done
right.' And believe me, that
kind of work is very
unglamorous," he added.
"Under the circumstances,
1 don't think it could have
been done any better.
From the first officer seeing


the smoke coming out of
the building to finding the
bullet hole at the end, I
don't think anyone could
have done any better, I
don't care who it was."
Davis is being held with-
out bond in the Polk
County jail,, and has been
assigned a public defender.
He has been charged with
three counts of attempted
murder, and could face
additional charges follow-
ing the death of Mike
Bustamante Jr., whose
mother was five and a half
months pregnant when
attacked, and who was
taken by emergency
Cesarean section from
Luciano Thursday night at
Orlando Regional Medical
Hospital Center. He died
early Sunday morning.


Police say Davis entered
the Headley Nationwide
Insurance Agency at 124
Central Avenue at approxi-
mately 3:39 p.m. last
Thursday in an apparent
robbery attempt. He was a
former customer at the
agency. The two women
were working there at the
time, and Davis allegedly
doused them with an
accelerant and lit them on
fire. During his escape, he
fired at Greisman, hitting
him in the nose with a bul-
let only after Greisman
turned his head away at the
last instant.
Davis then is alleged to
have walked up Phillips
Street to a car that he had
parked there before the
alleged robbery, and then
drove to Winter Haven.


Family, from Page Al


said that might be
because her sister-in-law
was thinking of her friend
and co-worker as the
attack was happening.
"Yvonne tried to save
Jane and the baby,"
Demaria believes. "With
Yvonne being so strong,
she's a fighter. And that's
what she did, she chased
him, she fought 'til the end."
Ironically, it is not the
first time that James and
suspect Leon Davis Jr.,
charged with three counts
of attempted murder,
crossed paths. Both are 30.
"He knew the suspect,"
Demaria confirmed. "But
he only knew him from
playing basketball. He
didn't know him personal-
ly or anything." The family
still asks what if. Although
there was never fear in the
insurance office that any-
thing bad would happen,
they still took reasonable
precautions, like not
keeping lots of cash on
hand.
"There was many a time
I would call and ask where
she was at and she would


say the bank making a
deposit," Demaria added.
"She would have never
thought this would hap-
pen there."
Family members for
both Bustamante and
Luciano briefly addressed
the media Monday after-
noon. "We want to thank
the whole Lake Wales
community that's been
praying and thinking
about the family. Your
support, your prayers,
everything from the com-
munity and not just Lake
Wales but the whole state
of Florida, we just want to
say thank you very much,'
said Ed Torres, who identi-
fied himself as
Bustamante's cousin. "We
were raised together since
little 'kids. I've been with
the family my whole life.
It's rough, but I'm coping
with it. We're praying with
each other, and the family
is there for each other."
He also remembered
Brandon Greisman, a
neighbor near the insur-
ance office, who rushed to
the scene to help in the


beginning moments of the
tragedy.
"To Brandon and his
family, we want to say
thanks to hiit to!rres


added. "Words cannot say
how much we appreciate
what he did."
Salvador Luciano, Jane's
brother, described the


ordeal as "tragic despair. I
put my faith in justice will
prevail. If there's any
prayers, we'll.. gladly
accept it."


A community prayer
service is planned
Thursday at noon near the
insurance office at 124
Central Avenue.

So many questions about such an unthinkable act


What went wrong
when Leon Davis Jr., 29,
entered the Nationwide
Insurance Co. on
Central Avenue in Lake
Wales and allegedly
pulled a gun out of a
canvas lunch bag
demanding money?
And why pick on an
insurance company,
which generally deals
mostly in checks?
Where does the
blame lie as to why
someone would throw a
fire accelerant on two
helpless young women,
one six months preg-
nant, and ignite it?
Why did our court
system release Davis,
who was arrested no
less than five times this
year, with bail bond
amounts ranging from
$250 to $5,000?
What about the local
police department and
the Department of Pro-
bation? Were they negli-
gent in not recognizing
a potentially serious
felon and should have


kept better track of his
activities? He had two
felony convictions and
a third pending.
These are all questions
the shocked citizens of
Lake Wales are asking. To
compound matters, it
has been reported by the
Sheriff's Office that Davis
is the suspect who
attempted to rob a BP
gas station on SR 557, on
the evening of Dec. 7 in
Lake Alfred, and execut-
ed two men in cold
blood.
Did the Lake Wales
Police drop the ball in
not paying closer atten-
tion to Davis, knowing
he had continued with
a series of thefts? Davis
did live in Lake Wales at.
one time but now is a
resident of Winter
Haven.
The thefts were most-
ly items Davis shoplift-
ed, with two considered
grand theft items. Not
until he was charged for
an additional grand
theft of $11,000 in prod-


uct, when he was em-
ployed at Florida's
Natural, did he meet
three grand theft viola-
tions which would
mandate his incarcera-
tion.
Ironically, it was pur-
ported that the Depart-
ment of Corrections'
Probation & Parole
Services had issued a
warrant for Davis'
arrest for parole viola-
tions the day the rob-
bery of the Nationwide
Insurance Co. took
place. There appears to
have been some delay
in serving the warrant
after the third felony
because Davis' priors
had been nonviolent. A
practice in delay, not by
design, but due to a
heavy workload of serv-
ing warrants to violent
offenders.
The answer to what
went terribly wrong
that led Davis to
allegedly throw an
accelerant on two
women is still a mys-


tery. We do know that
he was reported to be in
town visiting his son
when he went to the
local office of Headley
Nationwide Insurance
Co. to rob it.
Why he carried a can
of accelerant to a rob-
bery has not been
determined unless his
intentions were to burn
the building down after
he robbed it, or to
intentionally burn the
victims or both.
Did the Lake Wales
Police do their job in
surveillance of busi-
nesses and patrolling
streets of the city?
A Lake Wales Police
patrol car happened to
be passing the crime
scene minutes after the
fire broke out and
noticed smoke coming
from the building.
Because the officer was
transporting a suspect
from another incident,
he could only radio for
help and report the fire.
He was unaware initial-


ly that a robbery and
attempted murder had
taken place. After radio-
ing for help, several
police cars and fire
trucks were at the crime
scene within minutes.
The Lake Wales
Police Department
should be recognized as
doing an outstanding
job, not only in their
response time but in
staying with the investi-
gation until 4'a.m. the
following morning,
searching for one of the
bullets that Davis fired.
According to the Lake
Wales Police, it was this
bullet that Sheriff crime
scene specialists were
able to identify ballistic
similarities from the
bullets fired at the Lake
Alfred BP station.
For nonviolent crimes,
the courts follow guide-
lines for lesser bail
bond amounts for
offenders who do not
have a history of fleeing
and no indication they
will. There are far more


suspects on our arrest
docket that appear
more capable of com-
mitting the heinous
crime in review that
Davis reportedly com-
mitted. Where do you
draw the line as to who
will do what and what
might the trigger be?
Crimes of this caliber
and motivation will
always be a difficult
challenge to predict
and prevent.
The victims should
be acknowledged and
praised for their
courage to identify the
assailant under such
painful duress, imme-
diately following the
attack.
Their identifying Davis
enabled police to alert
all law enforcement
agencies in Polk County
to be on the lookout for
a specific suspect.
This information was
instrumental in the
family's involvement in
convincing Davis to
surrender.


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR



I am against the planned

historic ordinance as it stands now

From the Files of The Lake Wales News
Compiled By PAT HAL I.


I am so glad your news-
paper is printing all letters
to the editor.
I can remember when
letters about the city were
turned over to the city for
editing and their response
before they were even
printed. This was not right.
': Today the paper is a joy
to read and the citizens of
Lake Wales can be very
proud of our home news-
paper.
I am against the planned
Historic Ordinance I do
not think it is right for a
building owner to have to
pay $275 to a committee of
five so they can be told
whether they can paint
their building a certain


color this money is not
refundable.
I worry this ordinance,
as it is now worded, will
make it even more difficult
to run a business down-
town.
The businesses down-
town are having a hard
enough time as it is; we
should not make it any
harder.
I worry what will hap-
pen to our murals because
I am aware of the personal
conflicts there.
I admire Mr. Tonjes for
all he has done for the
town.
I wonder how a "com-
mittee" would have han-
dled the restoration of the


murals on Stuart and
Scenic Highway.
Restoring them was the
responsibility of the City
yet almost 75 percent of
the $14,000 it took to
restore them came from
the Mural Program,
because the citysaid they
didn't have the money. Mr.
Tonjes and his committee
raised the money for the
murals through donations.
How would the Historic
Ordinance have handled
this?
I would like the City to
change this ordinance
before it is passed.

Concerned about annexation

proposal near Starr Lake area


The Lake Wales area is
truly a great place to live
and raise families. I've
enjoyed living in the Lake
Wales community for over
40 years.
I'm concerned with this
huge annexation proposal
north and east of Starr
Lake. These same concerns
are addressed by the sec-
ond paragraph of a
November 30, 2007, letter
from Florida Department
of Community Affairs
shown below.
"The City's proposed
Amendment 07-2 consists
of six amendments to the
Future Land Use Map
(FLUM).
The Department has the
following concerns with
the proposed amend-
ments: (1) the amend-
ments are not appropriate-
ly supported by data and
analysis regarding potable
water facilities; (2)
Amendments D2007-10
and D2007-14 are not


appropriately supported
by data and analysis
regarding the availability of
water supply; (3)
Amendments D2007-09,
D2007-10, D2007-11, and
D2007-14 are not appropri-
ately supported by data
and analysis regarding
transportation planning;
and (4) Amendment 2007-
14 is not appropriately
supported by data and
analysis regarding the need
for the additional residen-
tial development potential
and the potential to pro-
mote urban sprawl. These
issues need to be
addressed prior to adop-
tion of the plan amend-
ment."
While I'm not a lawyer, I
understand the annex
property should have a
strong tie to the city prop-
erty. This tie is not even 10
feet. It is a point tie to the
SE corner of the city prop-
erty recently annexed.
As a retired engineer


with the power company,
I've worked with develop-
ers for over 30 years and I
know residential develop-
ment is rarely developed as
fast as predicted.
The annexed land in our
area is not 50 percent
developed. The real estate
market is not in a boom,
but is expected to be very
poor for the next few years.
The expansion of the City
of Lake Wales needs to slow
down so its revenue can
catch up with development
cost or it could have severe
financial problems as
experienced under Mr.
Green, the former city
manager.
I hope the citizens and
commissioners of the City
of Lake Wales look closely
at this proposal as it
appears very risky and
speculative.

Just give me that 'Old and Reliable' every time


"New and improved" is
one of the most pernicious
oxymorons in the English
language.
Give me "old and reli-
able" any time.
Admittedly, I don't
adjust well to change, par-
ticularly not to change in
something that I have
learned how to use.
Perhaps it is a reflection
of my nearly five decades
as an Episcopalian. We
don't take well to change.
We latter-day Anglicans
have been known to accept
a little genteel heresy, but
keep your cotton-pickin'
hands off our prayer book.
When it comes to type-
setting, I remember with
nostalgia my first Mac. It
came with MacWrite and
MacDraw.
MacWrite offered a
dozen or so typefaces, from
plain vanilla stuff like you


THINKING .

use to write letters and
news stories to something
that looked like letters
clipped from headlines to
create a ransom note.
Our present typesetting
system gives me choices of
hundreds of typefaces;
frankly, I don't need hun-
dreds of typefaces. There
are only 26 letters in the
alphabet, and I don't need
hundreds of ways to write
them.
When I got into this
business, we had Smith-


Corona manual typewrit-
ers and Model 8 Linotype
machines. They were both
as reliable as the 1928 Book
of Common Prayer. For my
first 37 years at this news-
paper, they served us well.
I now use a computer
that is seven years old. It is
hopelessly antiquated.
Eventually. it will be
replaced by a newer model.
I will not like it as well as
I do this one.
Actually, my topic today
is Christmas tree stands.
Tree stands are the latest
"new and improved"
arrivals on the technologi-
cal landscape.
Frankly, I am unim-
pressed.
My friend Mary told me
the other day that there is a
new tree stand on the mar-
ket that has a foot pedal on
it. You place the Christmas
tree in it pointed end up


- and press the pedal until
it is firmly clamped in
place.
Easy, yes, but where's the
skill in that?
Where's the satisfaction
that comes from lying face
down on the living room
floor, twisting sticky thumb
screws until your charming
if slightly misshapen tree is
in a more or less vertical
position?
The last time I saw any-
thing like the tree stand
Mary described, it was a
pneumatic cast used to sta-
bilize a broken ankle.
That's where technology
belongs.
In my childhood, we
would go out to a mined-
over phosphate moon-
scape off what is now
County Road 555 and cut a
Florida sand pine.
Dad would make a tree
stand out of a pair of scrap


1x4 boards.
It was as stable as any-
thing on today's market,
and if I could figure out a
way to water the tree, I
would make one like it to
this day.
Florida sand pines
would last through the
entire Christmas season,
not like the "fresh cut" trees
on today's lots. I have trav-
eled in the mountains of
Tennessee in the late sum-
mer;
I have seen trucks load-
ed with truly fresh cut
trees, headed for a cold
storage warehouse for five
months. Yes, today's trees
are far more shapely than
the sand pines of
yesteryear, but they require
frequent watering.
And that requires a tree
stand as wide as a manhole
cover and a water reservoir
that would sate the thirst of


a small herd of range cattle.

Before I end this treatise,
let me give you a hint on
how to water your tree
without having to repeat
the belly-down commando
crawl a couple of times a
week. I learned it frommy
friends at what used to be
Citrus & Chemical Bank,
which traditionally had the
biggest Christmas tree this
side of Rockefeller Plaza.
Buy a four-foot section
of neoprene tubing and the
brightest-colored funnel
you can find.
Thread the tubing down
the center of the tree into
the base; pour a small
amount of water into the
funnel every day or two.
This is not "new and
improved;" I've been doing
it for years.
It is "old and reliable."
I like it.


Considering a fire fee


for city of Lake Wales



City staff is recom-
mending that the City
Commission review the
process for imposing a
"non ad valorem" assess-
ment for fire services. This
method is used by a num-
ber of local governments
throughout the State,
including Polk County
and the City of Avon Park,
to collect fees and provide
funding for their fire
departments. The imposi-
tion of this fee is allowed
by State law. If approved
by the City Commission, it
would appear on the tax
bills and be paid with the
property tax.
City staff is recom-
mending a review of this
available revenue source
because of the increasing
cost of providing fire ser-
vice and state-mandated
cuts in property taxes, the
primary source for fund-
ing the fire service.
Currently there are prop-
erties that do not pay
property taxes but receive
fire protection services.
The imposition of this fee
would allow the City to
correct this inequity. Let's
take a closer look at this
revenue option and why it
is important to review it
now.
The Polk County Fire
Assessment Fee
System
Every property owner
in the unincorporated
area of the County is
assessed a fee for fire ser-
vice. This fee appears on


THE
OPEN


i-'


RECORD

Tony
Otte, City
Manager


the tax bill and the
amount is included in the
total amount that is due
and to be paid to the
county tax collector by the
property owner.
The state law authoriz-
ing this fee allows local
governments to decide
whether or not to charge
government, non-profit
and church properties, It
is interesting to note that
the County does not
charge these properties
the fire assessment fee;
however, the County, from
other funding sources, is
required by State law to
contribute the assessed
fee that is not charged to
these properties. The City
of Avon Park is among
those local governments
charging the fire assess-
ment fee to this group of
properties.
The Polk County Fire
Assessment Fee
Schedule
The schedule includes
the following charges:
Single Family Homes:
S$148.00
Multi Family Units


$113.00
Restaurant
$0.266 per sq. ft
Industrial
$0.090 per sq. ft
Warehouse
$0.011 per sq. ft
Why Review this
Now?
There are several rea-
sons to review this rev-
enue source now:
The cost of operating
a fire department is going
up significantly, both for
personnel and equip-
ment;
Property tax reform
means less funds available
for fire service expendi-
tures;
Spreading the base to
all properties equitably dis-
tributes the cost of benefits
and services provided;
Our City's Fire
Department just achieved
a significant improvement
in the ISO (Insurance
Services Office) rating,
which has the possibility
of dramatically reducing
fire insurance costs for
property owners.
If the City Commission
decides to consider this
revenue option, a Citizen
Forum would be conduct-
ed by City staff on Jan. 10
at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
The decision on whether
to move forward is tenta-
tively scheduled for the
Jan. 15 City Commission
meeting, which begins at 6
p.m. Everyone is cordially
invited to attend these
meetings.

And we are all asking 'Why"


'As individuals, what
value do we give to other
lives?
It's an emotionally
moving observation to see
residents of our small city
gathering together in
prayer to express their
concern for others who
have been hurt. The
recent tragedy of two
young employees of an
insurance company and a
Good Samaritan, who
came to their aid and was
shot, pulls at the heart-
strings of everyone.
It has been disclosed by
the Polk County Sheriff's
Office that Leon Davis Jr.
will be charged for the
murder of the two gas sta-
tion workers in Lake
Alfred, Dec. 6.
It was a totally sense-
less crime by the suspect
whose lack of remorse was

well known phenomenon
of Spook Hill, the appoint-

This Thursday at noon,
the public is invited 'to
attend a prayer service at
the location of the tragedy
at 124 West Central

Lady Royals


win own hoop


tournament


The Lady Royals defeat-
ed Goshen College (Ind.)
62-60 on Saturday to finish
a two-game sweep in their
own Christmas Classic this
past weekend.
Ronke Allen led scoring
in the first half of the game
scoring 10, points and
grabbing two rebounds. In
a half that saw only two
lead changes, the Royals
went into half-time lead-
ing the Maple Leafs by
three points.
The second half went
back and forth as the game
saw eight more lead
changes. Kendall Heath
made four three pointers
in the second half allowing
her to end the game lead-
ing all scoring at 18 points.
Allen added five more
points totaling 15 in the
game. Rose Charles
grabbed eight total
rebounds on the night and
Lauren Brewer blocked
three shots.
As the final second
wound down, the Maple
Leafs had possession for
the last shot of the game.
Looking as if they may set
up a go for the win, they
passed the ball inside the
three point arc and took a
jump shot which bounced
off the rim into Nakita
Prince 's hands as the
Royals defense held tight
to their two-point lead,
and ultimately the win.
With the win, the Royals
improved to 5-7 on the
season.
The Lady Royals defeat-
ed NA1A Division I
Pikeville College 76-72 in
an exciting game to open
up the Warner Southern
Christmas Classic.
The Royals had four
players score in double fig-
ures as freshman Ivana
Soberal led the team scor-
ing 12 points. Freshman
Lauren Brewer and junior
Nakita Prince poured in 11
points, while junior
Kendall Heath scored 10
points.
The game stayed close
in the first half with six
lead changes, but the
Bears went in the locker
room with a five-point
lead, 35-30.
The Royals came out
the gate playing tougher
defense as they were able
to take a two-point lead,
58-56 with 8:26 left on the
clock with a three pointer
from Heath. The Royals
never gave up the lead


after that, extending their
lead to as high as 12
points, but the Lady Bears
who have been plagued
with injury never gave up.
They were able to chip
away at the lead, getting it
down to only two points
with 35 seconds left on the
clock. With their backs
against the wall Brewer
made a clutch steal which
lead to a foul, Brewer went
on to sink her two free
throws to seal the game at
76-72.

Men drop
second game
of season

The Warner Southern
men's team was defeated
by Sterling: College 73-70
on Saturday.
Brandon Hamilton lead
first half scoring missing
only one of his nine total
shots, going 6-for-6 from
the foul line and 1-for-l
from three point range
totaling 11 first half points.
Alex Castillo scored eight
and included three
rebounds in the half help-
ing the Royals to score 37
points.
Dennis Bender finished
the game with a team high
12 points, followed by
Hamilton's 11 and Tommy
Kleinschnitz 's 10. Chris
Brach led the team in
steals with 3 and added 2
blocked shots and 3
rebounds.
Trailing for most of the
second half, the Royals
took the lead with 2:07 on
the clock as Adam Branch
completed an old-fash-
ioned three point play for
a 69-67 lead. A couple of
free throw shots later the
Royals were up by three
with 1:01 on the clock. The
visiting Warriors tied the
game with 30 seconds on a
three pointer by Dallas
Schnurr, who nailed
another three-ball with 11
seconds to play. A trifecta
try from Brach was off the
mark at the buzzer.
The Royals have
dropped out of the NAIA
Division II Top 25, and will
look to rebound against
Roberts Wesleyan College
tonight. .They hosted
Briarcliff College last
night, and will close out
2007 with a New Year's Eve
date at home against

growing up in a rural
community in Alabama

Numerous bicycling safety projects are in the works in Lake Wales


The following projects
or programs are either
underway or will be start-
ed in the near future.
1. Helmet awareness
and bicycle safety classes
are being conducted at
Hillcrest Elementary
School. This program
consists of helmet fitting,
helmet awareness posters
and signs and basic bicy-
cle safety exercises.
2. Helmet awareness
posters and helmet fitting
will soon be made avail-
able in most of the other
Charter schools.
3. After the first of the
year, the Lake Wales Police
Department will sponsor
a system of awarding pens
to children who wear a
bicycle helmet when rid-
ing a bicycle. The pens
will bear the statement
"Wear a Helmet." The
implementation of this
award program is still to
be worked out. We may
use the school crossing
guards for this function.

be helping with the ele-
mentary school children
and Leah Folb will be han-
dling the middle school
children. These classes
are intended to be a one-
time shot, but we can fol-
low up with additional
sessions if we determine
that they are well
received.

on the aspects of organiz-
ing the Lake Ashton mem-
bers into a bicycling
group, with the emphasis
on forming a club and

events. Sarita Taylor,
FDOT district bicycle

will be providing some

6. If I can get police
support, I intend to oper-
ate a bicycle information
table in Eagle Ridge Mall.
The activation of this
table is dependent upon
obtaining police sponsor-


ship, due to the legal
requirements of the mall.
With the Police Depart-
ment's staffing shortfall,
the activation of this bicy-
cle safety project is ques-
tionable.

designating Lake Wales as

proclamation urges all cit-

for us to follow through

The CACI has come to Lake Wales


AREA EVENTS


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
StaffWriter

A surgery-free facelift has arrived
in town just in time for Christmas.
Patricia Dewar, of London,
England, visited her friend in Lake
Wales so many times she decided to
put down roots here and become
part of the business community.
She uses a machine made famous
in the United Kingdom by the late
Princess Diana, the CACI (Computer
Aided Cosmetology Instrument),
which directs painless micro cur-
rents to re-educate the muscles on
the face and neck.
"What this does definitely stops
the aging process in its tracks."
Dewar said, "It's stimulating the
muscle and building it back up."
Applying the cotton tipped
probes to the face, the "lift" treat-
ment lasts 40 minutes and is so
relaxing that Dewar said many of her
clients fall asleep.
"The CACI increases the collagen
and elastin that we start to lose with
age," Dewar said, "and also encour-
ages the proper circulation of blood
and lymph which are extremely
important elements in the condi-
tion, color and overall health of the
skin."
The London native has been
using the system herself for 15 years,
the proof of the amazing treatment
written all over her glowing face.
"The micro currents get right
under the belly of the muscle," she
said, "and it is reeducating it to go -
wow it gets back to where it used
to be 20 years ago. Even kids who are
28 can see a difference, because
their muscles start going down from
not exercising. We've got 30-odd
muscles in our face, and we exercise
about six (of them) by smiling, talk-
ing, grinning, and that's the only
time we use those particular mus-
cles. Now men, their faces are better
than ours, because from age 16 they
have been exercising their face every
single day shaving, so their faces
are always firmer than ours."


Patricia Dewar, owner of The London Look Beauty Salon, shows the CACI
in her salon. She has the only CACI located within the Orlando, Fla. area.


She said that the treatment.is not
just for women, and she does offer it
to men as well.
Dewar treated many soap opera
stars in the United Kingdom, and
said Princess Diana's seal of
approval was good for her business.
"My business doubled overnight
when she made it known in the
media that she had the CACI week-
ly," Dewar said.
Her business on Park Avenue will
soon open under the name The
London Look Beauty Salon and will
share a building with the Allure
Salon' (whose name will be on the
front of the building), but until then
she is taking clients in her home on
Johnson Avenue in Lake Wales.
Ten treatments accomplish the
"lift" and usually runs close to
$1,500.
Until Jan. 11, however, she is
offering the course of treatments for
an introductory price of $1,000.
Already her appointment book is
filling up.
"The phone has rang and rang,"
she said, "all of the clients did not
even question what it is, they just
want the treatment."
What is fascinating is how Dewar
was introduced to the CAC1.


"I was sitting on the sofa watch-
ing the Today program in London
and saw the program on television
advertising the machine;" she said,
"I was in my fifties ready for some-
thing like that, and I thought my
God! For the first time in my life I
phoned up the television, and I said
what is that machine?"
Dewar was curious about the
machine that could bring back the
youthful look she desired.
"I had jowls then, and I said if you
can get rid of my jowls, then I will
buy the machine because I was very
skeptical."
She has been using it on herself
and others for the last fifteen years.
The CACI is actually an American
FDA approved machine, and its sole
U.S.A. distributor, Ageless Aesthetics
Inc., said Dewar is going to be "the
only USA CACI certified technician
providing CACI micromode
microcurrent technology within the
Orlando, Fla. area" as of Sept. 5,
2007.
Dewar gives free makeup and
skin care advice, and offers facials
and eyebrow shaping for an addi-
tional fee.

appointment.

ntIHRI I IVlTM3 LL
The Christmas my daughter turned 7, my husband and I found
ourselves among a wealthy bunch of people. We were
financially stable, but we were working more and more
hours to keep the luxuries we thought so important at that
time, and this Christmas promised to be full of extravagant
gifts we could not afford. As Christmas approached,
we were irritable and tired most of the time. My daughter
had spent 2 weeks at my mother's house so we could both
work double shifts. I did not however, give my daughter
the credit she deserved. One morning she called me and
asked if I could pick her up for lunch. I agreed and juggled
my schedule. It had been 2 weeks exactly since I had'seen.
her last. I drove the 3 hours and picked her up. This is what
my brilliant, wonderful 7 year old daughter taught me that
day. We drove into the city. She held my hand. but she Was
leading. We walked into an old drug store that I had passed
every day, but had never seen. She picked out a small gold
bell ornament and placed it on the counter then asked if we
could buy it. Next my daughter oQ9ii 9coiunmiily i, ltie
pulled out some wrinkled paper
and wrapped the bell. As she
did this she said, "Mommy,
now we have a gift for all of us. i


No more time away from each
other.".The very next day we
slowed the pace and started
acting like a family. Every
Christmas after that, we bought
an ornament for the tree as our
gift for each other. We always ',
take the week before Chiistias
off work and spend it together.

SOCIAL SECURITY NEWS


New process
will accelerate
benefits to
those deemed
clearly disabled
Michael J. Astrue, com-
missioner of Social
Security, announced that
the Social Security admin-
istration has implemented
its new quick disability
determination (QDD) pro-
cess in Florida's disability
determination services.
Under QDD, a predictive
model analyzes specific
elements of data within the
electronic claims file to
identify claims where there
is a high potential that the
claimant is disabled and
where evidence of the per-
son's allegations can be
quickly and easily
obtained.
Compassionate
allowances are a way of
quickly identifying diseases
and other medical condi-
tions that invariably qualify
under Social Security's
Listing of Impairments


based on minimal objec-
tive medical information.
Compassionate allowances
will let Social Security
quickly target the most
obviously disabled individ-
uals for allowances based
on objective medical infor-
mation that can be
obtained quickly. Many of
these claims can be
allowed based on confir-
mation of the diagnosis
alone; for example, acute
leukemia, amyotrophic lat-
eral sclerosis (ALS) and
pancreatic cancer. In these
cases, allowances can be
made as soon as the diag-
nosis is confirmed or the
other necessary objective
medical evidence is
.obtained.
"We need to identify and
fast-track disability cases
that are certain or near-cer-
tain to be allowed," said
Michael J. Astrue,
Commissioner of Social
Security. "The compassion-
ate allowances initiative
will allow the Social
Security Administration to
make decisions on cases
involving certain categories
of conditions in days or


weeks instead of months or
years."
The Social Security
Administration currently
receives more than 206,000
new disability cases each
year in Florida. In New
England, where the QDD
process was tested, about
three percent of all new
cases were identified as
QDD cases. These cases
were processed in an aver-
age of 11 days.
Since the model does
not yet incorporate as
many diseases as it can,
Commissioner Astrue has
committed to expanding
the number of cases that
can be identified as a QDD
case while maintaining the
same level of accuracy.
"The length of time
many people wait for a dis-
ability decision is unac-
ceptable," Commissioner
Astrue said. "I am commit-
ted to a process that is as
fair and speedy as possible.
While there is no single
magic bullet, with better
systems, better business
processes and better ways
of fast-tracking targeted
cases, we can greatly


improve the service we
provide to the citizens of
Florida."
The Social Security
Administration is making
statements from its two-
day public hearing with
some of the nation's lead-
ing experts on rare diseases
available online at
www.socialsecurity.gov.
The experts presented tes-
timony and shared their
views about Social
Security's efforts to identify
and implement "compas-
sionate allowances" for
children and adults with
rare diseases.
This hearing, held Dec. 4
and 5, in Washington, D.C.,
is the first of four public
hearings that Social
Security plans to hold over
the next year.
Go to www.socialsecuri-
ty.gov/compassionateal-
lowances for testimony
from many of the rare dis-
ease experts and a photo
gallery of the hearing.

ability programs, go to

ability.

LAKE WALES IN MOTION By PALMERWOOD


Construction on
numerous projects has
stalled due to setbacks in
residential real estate
demands. Deletion of
projects on the previous
Lake Wales in Motion list
is substantial, however,
hopefully only temporar-
ily. Because of a signifi-
cant reduction in activity
on projects, both pro-
posed and previously
active, a status report on
their progress will con-
tinue to be curtailed until
activity is observed or
reported. The following


projects are active and
will be reported as they
progress.

BROOKSHIRE- This
85-lot single-family sub-
division is located on the
east side of Scenic High-
way. Twenty-nine homes
have been completed.

HUNTER'S GLEN -

sion has been approved
and ready to move for-
ward. A new master plan
for the remaining phases
is being prepared for city


review.

pletion. The project,
located on the corner of
U.S. 27 and Mt. Lake Cut-
off Road, has really
enhanced the area with
landscaping and presen-
tation of the building.

LEE'S FURNITURE -
The addition is complete
with signage and land-
scaping to be completed.


HAMPTON INN AND
SUITES Joseph E Mir-
anda Construction pro-
ject continues to move
forward at a quick pace.
The vertical construction
is complete and the exte-
rior facade is nearing
completion. An early
2008 opening is planned.

POLK COMMUNITY
COLLEGE Renovation
of Old City Hall continues
for the satellite campus.
The 1970 addition to the
building has been
removed and re-roofing


has begun.

SHOPPERS ON THE
RIDGE PHASE 2 The
project has completed
the site plan approval
stages and has actively
started site development.
A gas station (Gate
Petroleum) and hotel
(Holiday Inn Express) are
in the review process and
will be getting underway
when site preparation is
complete.

WILLOWBROOK
SQUARE --'This retail


development is located
on the corner of U.S. 27

opment with site work to
