candidates were considered,
Polk County Commissioners
unanimously decided to go

went on to state that the
successes the county has

point he made early in his in-

priorities, and he admitted
to having been ambivalent
about seeking the position,
at first.
However, with the backing
and blessing of his fam-

moment, Freeman filled out
an application. Part of his

Impact fee moratorium shows revenue decline

An impact fee moratorium
was the only item under new
business discussed by Bartow
city commissioners Tuesday
At the request of City Man-
ager George A. Long, Planning
Director Bob Weigers had
conducted an analysis that
showed the collection levels of
three impact fees: transporta-
tion, public facilities and parks
and recreation recoupment,
starting in fiscal year 2005-06
and including the projection
for FY 2010-11.
Without exception, each year
showed a decline in revenues,
perhaps a reflection of current
"More than anything else,
I wanted to get this issue out
and on the table," said Long,
who added he was not look-
ing for a decision, that he just

wanted to identify a situation.
"It's probably a good time to
take a look at whether impact
fees have served their pur-
"I don't mind further analy-
sis and updating our fees," said
Commissioner Adrian Jackson.
"I have reservations about a
He added that in his search-
es on the Internet, he had not
found any correlation between
job growth and lowering fees
and/or a moratorium.
Jackson wondered whether a
better route would be to issue
either a credit or rebate.
For his part, Commissioner
Pat Huff wanted to make
sure Bartow remained in a
favorable position when the
economy does improve.
"I would say, leave it as it is,"
he said.
Gerald Cochran, who spoke
during the public forum por-
tion, said "What the county

does shouldn't have any im-
pact on what the city does. If
someone sticks their head into
the fire it doesn't mean you
"I say, leave the impact fees
alone, there's nothing wrong
with them."
Cochran's next comments
were on a complaint he has
constantly raised, about city
employees he claims are loaf-
ing and not earning their keep.
At the conclusion of the
public forum, Commissioner
James E Clements felt com-
pelled to respond, and he
defended city employees.
"If the problem was as big
as it was, we'd hear from more
people than Gerald," said Cle-
ments. "I don't think anybody
should give credence to what
he says."
Clements' words were
backed by City Commissioner
Leo Longworth.


With Mayor Wayne Lewis looking on, Polk County Commissioner Melony
Bell, who represents District 2, which includes Bartow, hears a presenta-
tion on Polk County Days, the county's sesquicentennial.

A 17-year-old Bartow High School
student is stable but will remain in the
hospital for several more days after be-
ing shot early Sunday morning.
Tyris G. Thomas, of Bartow, under-
went surgery at Lakeland Regional
Medical Center for a gunshot wound
to the stomach he suffered after a
Battle Zone Showcase 2 show at Carver
Recreation Center on South.Idlewood
Avenue in Bartow.
The 12:15 a.m. Sunday shooting
didn't occur at the center, but on a
sidewalk at South Oak Lawn Drive.
Thomas returned to the center after
the show because he knew there were
police officers there who could help
him and possibly find out who shot
him, Bartow Police Detective Dave
Reynolds said.
"It wasn't at the center but it in-
volved people at the center," Reynolds
He added th ough they have
clues and are following leads on the
shooting, Thomas likely was a by-
stander who was hit by a "stray bullet."
Reynolds said it could have stemmed
from a fight involving people from
another city.
"Our understanding right now is
there were several individuals involved
but there was only one person who did
the shooting," he said. "But we're look-
ing for all of them."
Reynolds said he's heard from
the doctors that Thomas is fine but
believes he might stay in the hospital
for another week. The bullet is still in
his stomach and it may not come out
because it is not in a critical enough
area to do additional surgery on, the
detective explained.
The incident happened shortly after
the show at Carver Civic Center.
This is the second Battle Zone Show-
case held there; the first one was in
About 300 people attended the show
Sunday, said Sgt. David Wyant.
Anyone who has information on the
shooting is asked to call the police at
534-5034 or CrimeStoppers at 800-226-
8477. Callers may remain anonymous.

to your fine coverage
and enlightened edito-
rial (January 19, 2011)
regarding the outstanding
job that was done by the
organizers of the Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King, Jr. parade
and related events.
We want to warmly
congratulate the Bartow
Area Deacons and Stew-
ards Alliance and their
leader Carver Young for
the many hours of hard
work that went into plan-
ning such a worthwhile
and successful parade.
It was indeed gratifying
to watch the smiling par-
ticipants, and to witness
' the,enthusiastic parade-
watchers who braved the
weather to commemorate
this important celebra-

tion. One shut-in senior
citizen who watched from
her bedroom window
suggested that this may
have been one of the
most successful parades,
in spite of the weather.
Dr. King marched in the
blazing hot sun, as well as
in the cold freezing rain
to help move our nation
closer to its founding
principal "where all (per-
sons) are created equal.
It was therefore highly
significant that the
celebrants honored his
memory and outstanding
work with such enthusi-
asm.While many poten-
tial float-riders wisely
rode inside vehicles, we
want to express deep
gratitude to the City Man-
ager of Bartow and other

entities for preparing
such beautiful floats.
We understand that our
city commissioners and
Staff were looking for-
ward to "ride and wave."
As we continue to work
toward "a more perfect
Union" it is our hope that
others will eventually step
up and embrace the im-
portant symbolism repre-
sented by these types of
community events.
Please note that this
call for wider participa-
tion extends to leaders of
all races.
Again, thank you for ac-
knowledging the tremen-
dous work of the Bartow
Deacons and Stewards
Alliance and many others.

We never heeded Ike's warning

I've always found it
rather haunting to watch
old footage of my grand-
father, Dwight Eisen-
hower, giving his televised
farewell address to the
nation on Jan. 17, 1961.
The 50-year-old film all
but crackles with age
as the president makes
his earnest, uncoached
speech. I was 9 years old
at the time, and it wasn't
until years later that I un-
derstood the importance
of his words or the lasting
impact of his message.
Of course, the speech
will forever be remem-
bered for Eisenhower's
concerns about a rising
"military industrial com-
plex," which he described
as "a permanent arma-
ments industry of vast
proportions" with the
potential to acquire -
whether sought or un-
sought "unwarranted
influence" in the halls of
The notion captured
the imagination of schol-
ars, politicians and veter-
ans; the military-indus-
trial complex has been
studied, investigated and
revisited countless times,
including now, at its 50th
anniversary. Looking

back, it is easy to see the
parallels to our era, espe-
cially how the complex
has expanded since Sept.
11, 2001. In less than 10
years, our military and se-
curity expenditures have
increased by 119 percent.
Even after subtracting
the costs of the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan, the,
budget has grown by 68
percent since 2001. In
2010, the United States
is projected to spend at
least $700 billion on its
defense and security, the
most, in real terms, that
we've spent in any year
since World War II.
However, at this time of
increased concerns over
our fiscal deficit and the
national debt, Eisen-
hower's farewell words
and legacy take on added
Throughout his presi-
dency, Eisenhower con-
tinually connected the

country's security to its
economic strength, un-
derscoring that our fiscal
health and our military
might are equal pillars of
our national defense. This
meant that a responsible
government would have
to make hard choices.
The question Eisenhower
continued to pose about
defense spending was
clear and practical: How
much is enough?
Early on, he realized
that if the United States
were to prevail in its
existential standoff with
the Soviet Union, we
would have to prepare for
a long game. Unlike our
experience in World War
II, which lasted less than
four years, the Cold War
would last many decades.
Eisenhower understood
that we were facing a
marathon, not a sprint.
Moreover, the logic of
nuclear deterrence made
the conventional wars
Ike had commanded in
the 1940s obsolete. Now,
there could be no margin
for error; the Cold War
brought with it different
calculations, which were
very costly by nature.
These new realities meant

Prosecutors accuse
Davis of robbing Headley
Nationwide Insurance
clerks Yvonne Bustaman-
te and Juanita Luciano at
gunpoint, forcing them
into the bathroom, then
restraining each with
duct tape, pouring gaso-
line on them, setting a
piece of crumpled paper
on fire, and tossing it,
onto the women.
An inferno proceeded
to consume both young
women, who attempted
to run, but were alleg-
edly tortured even as
they tried to escape their
attacker, the state notes,
while the suspect contin-
ued to douse them with
gasoline as they fled.
Bustamante receiv-
ing a bullet in her hand,
eventually made it to the
front of the building, and
was still on fire as she ran
out the front door.
Luciano, 24 weeks
pregnant, ran next
door to a restaurant
then known as Havana
Nights. Both women and
Luciano's prematurely
delivered son.
Michael Bustamante
Jr. perished from their
injuries. Jurors saw pho-
tos of the bathroom that
was consumed by flames,
leaving piles of soot and
debris, amidst which lay
the remnants of a plastic
gas can, partially melted.
They saw the trail
of bloody foot prints

leading away from the
insurance agency. Cloth-
ing, burned, charred,
and melted, packaged in
plastic bags with id,enti-
fication tags, was walked
before the jury, one item
at a time.
Driver's licenses,
purses, Social Security
cards and cell phones
belonging to the women
were all that remained of
the women who occu-
pied the desks at Headley

John McCue, whose most recent position was manager for
Orange City, answered practically every question posed with an
air of self-assuredness.

dunk for commissioners







In response to a ques-
tion about being more
effective with less money,
Warren spoke of an ef-
fort she had initiated,
recognizing the contri-
butions made by county
employees, particularly
those in non-supervisory
or management roles.
These are the people
who do the actual work,
who have the first-hand
understanding of what
it takes to get a task
accomplished. Rather

than limit recognition to
just plaques or bonuses,
she had them go to
public functions such
as civic and community
groups as guest speak-
ers. It served as a mo-
rale booster, especially
during these difficult
economic times when
there are staff reductions'.
and people are asked to
do more with less.

asked of all candidates,
posed each time by
English, was what ques-
tions did the candidates
have of the commission-
ers. When asked, War-
ren turned the question
around. What did the
BOCC see as its vision.
"I believe within 10
years that Polk County
is going to be one of the
richest counties in the
state," said English, add-
ing that was predicated
upon the fact Polk's loca-
tion "allows us to be the
center of Florida."
Overall, Warren's inter-
view, which was the first
and held the morning of
Wednesday, Jan. 19, was
considered low-key, es-
pecially in comparison to
the afternoon interview
with John McCue, who
came across to commis-
sioners as more forceful.
McCue, whose last posi-
tion had been as man-
ager of Orange City, set
the tone from the onset
when he was welcomed
and thanked by Smith for

"It is a great oppor-
tunity," said McCue. "If
I hadn't applied, I'd've
been a fool."
Like Warren, and sub-
sequently, Roger Baltz,
McCue had held govern-
ment positions in various
locales, starting in the
1980s in Dade County,
where he worked for a
manager he termed a
"I got a.lot of exposure
to the decision-making
process," said McCue.
McCue believed his
mix of working in coun-
ties both urban and rural
served in his stead, when
he progressed from Dade
to Leon County, and
from there to Wakulla
County; the latter two on
the Florida panhandle.
He left Wakulla County
and went to work for the
Department of Revenue,
but returned to city and
county government
because he said he was a
"get it done type of guy."
"I've got 'tools' in my
management tool kit;" he
said at one point.
Like McCue, Baltz
shared certain simi-
larities. Each early in life
had learned that if they
wanted to get into mana-
gerial roles --- and after
stints in manual labor
that the key was upper
Whereas McCue had
been a lumberjack in
Vermont, and later a ma-
chinist, Baltz's first public
sector job had been with

a parks and recreation
"I started out sweep-
ing floors, putting up
basketball nets," he said.
With that background,
and the observation that
those in management
held advanced degrees,
Baltz went to college and
earned two advanced de-
grees. The first master's
degree was in education,
the second in public
A concern was raised
by Dantzler that with
one exception, being
the county manager for
Charlotte County, Baltz's
tenure at any position
was usually two-to-three
years at most.
"I've gone to com-
munities to serve as a
'change agent,'" he said.
Moves he made were
in order to grow and
expand his expertise.
"Now I'm at a point in
my career to stay."
All four candidates
spoke of the need to
get a number of people
involved in the differing
aspects of managing and
directing the county, get-
ting input from county
employees and citizens,
and all of them pointed
to ways in which they
had achieved that ends.
In the final interview,
with Freeman, it prompt-
ed a light-hearted com-
ment from Smith.
"They say a camel is a
horse designed by a com-
mittee," he said.

FREEMAN: Named new county manager

coming to Polk County
in 1989, to head its IT
department, Freeman
moved up the ranks.
Yet when Herr asked
him to serve as deputy
county manager, Free-
man expressed concern
about lacking the creden-
tials to do the position
justice. Those concerns
were allayed by Herr.
"In response, Herr said,
'I need a business mind.
That's what I need in this
position,'" Freeman told
the BOCC.
As with all the candi-
dates, the BOCC posed
a series of questions to
Freeman, some from a

prepared list that Human
Resources Director An-
thony Casas and his de-
partment had developed,
as well as individual
questions commission-
ers had. In most queries,
Freeman's answers were
not much different than
those of the other three
candidates. However,
several differed substan-
As a follow-up to the
question of whether
Freeman enjoyed spot-
ting talent and plugging
those people into the
"right spots" (to which he
said he enjoyed having
influence in "building
the right team"), he was

asked by BOCC Chair-
man Edwin V Smith, "Do
you think people should
be challenged to stretch
beyond their capability?"
Freeman's was a "quali-
fied" yes.
"Sometimes you
should promote people
beyond their level of
competence," he said.
"You put people in
positions in order to
succeed." He elaborated
upon that response,
aboutan incident that
worked, in which a per-
son had the qualities but
not the credentials.
"One of the hardest
jobs of a manager is
to judge the quality of

an employee," he said.
However, in a later part
of the interview, Freeman
spoke of a promotion
that turned out not to
be a "good fit." Despite
repeated efforts to bring
that individual's output
to the level of compe-
tence needed to carry out
the job, nothing worked,
and the employee was
let go.
"In the end, you have
to work in the best inter-
ests of the organization,"
he said.
Toward the end of
the interview, Commis-
sioner Melony Bell asked
him his vision for Polk

Growing up in Gwin-
nett County, it was a ru-
ral county, he said. Now
it is part of the Atlanta
metro. When he came
to Polk in 1989, it was
mostly rural, with the
exception of Lakeland.
His vision included high-
paying jobs "where his
children and grandchil-
dren can live and work,
where people don't have
to commute to Tampa
and Orlando."
"The challenge is put-
'ting into place the poli-
cies to do the right thing
to have that quality of life
for a long time," he said.
Taking a short recess
upon the interview's

conclusion, the BOCC
deliberated and ranked
all four candidates, on
a scale of 1-5, with the
lower the number, the
higher the ranking. Free-
man was the first choice
of commissioners, thus
scoring a five.
Herr lauded the deci-
"I'm certainly happy
he's been selected,"
said Herr, who added
Freeman's selection is
indicative of the success
instituted to guarantee
the county's positive
direction. He called

All About Thyroids What You Need to Know By: Adanm Rise

The body is made up of eleven major systems. These groups are com-
posed of various organs which are responsible for homeostasis. If any of
these systems malfunction, other bodily organs are compromised. There-
fore, it is vital to maintain balance in the body so the systems can remain
fully functional.

One of those major regulatory systems in the body is the Endocrine Sys-
tem. It is made up of glands that produce and secrete hormones. Metabo-
lism, sexual function and bodily growth are established through the hor-
mones secreted by the endocrine system.

The endocrine system is made up of different glands which are respon-
sible for the secretion of hormones. These hormones are like chemical
messengers which transfer information from a group of cells to another in
order to coordinate the functions of various bodily parts.

The major glands of the endocrine system are the following:

* Hypothalamus a part of the brain which interprets sensory signals like
temperature and metabolism. It also signals the body the feeling of satiety.
It secretes hormones like somatostatin which signals the pituitary gland to
inhibit the release of growth hormones at the right time. "

* Pituitary Gland releases four hormones necessary for normal func-
tioning in the body. It produces growth hormones, luteinizing hormones,

adrenocorticotropin hormones, and thyroid-stimulating hormones.

* Reproductive Glands responsible for the release of sex hormones.

*Adrenal Glands located on top of the kidneys they are made up of three
various parts which regulate balance of salt and water, body metabolism,
and sexual function.

* Parathyroid Glands releases hormones for Calcium balance in the

* Pancreas both an endocrine and exocrine gland. The endocrine role of
the pancreas regulates the blood sugar level in the body through insulin
and glucagon release.

* Thyroid Gland produces thyroid hormones which are responsible for
normal body metabolism. It plays an important role in the development
of the nervous system in children. The gland also maintains normal heart
rate, blood pressure and muscle tone, reproductive and digestive functions.

All these parts of the endocrine system play a vital role in humans. The
thyroid gland is viewed to be one of the most important parts among the
systems because it specifically regulates functions of the body like blood
pressure and heart rate. Malfunction in this part of the endocrine system
may lead to detrimental effects.
