Faster.

Less waiting for emergency care (and a lot more care, if you need it). In a medical emergency, every minute matters. So, at Bartow Regional Medical Center, you’ll find faster care in the emergency room. We work diligently to have you initially seen by a medical professional with the shortest wait time possible.* And, with a team of dedicated medical specialists, we can provide a lot more care, if you need it.

For less waiting and faster care, count on the E.R. at Bartow Regional Medical Center.

E.R. *E.R. wait time, which is defined as the time it takes from check-in at the E.R. desk until a patient is initially seen by a physician, can change quickly. This time is dependent on the severity of the illnesses and other patients also in the E.R. WINTER 2015 w w w . B a R T O W C H A M B E R . com â—?

Jeffries Bookkeeping in it for People You probably have heard different businesses advertise that they are “in it For The People,” and truly, the bottom line is, if you are running a business and not keeping your clients’ needs a priority, you probably are doing them a disservice. Donna Jeffries of Jeffries Bookkeeping and Income Tax Services, Inc., 180 S. Broadway Avenue, Bartow, (863) 533-1416, is about finding “the bottom line,” for her clients; and anyone who knows Donna, knows she is truly all about the people. Donna’s best friend, ex-mother-in-law and mentor, Willie May Jeffries, passed away in 2010, leaving Donna on her own since coming to work for her in 1998. Willie May had encouraged Donna to reopen as a new business to avoid any legal complications, which she did. Donna is very proud of the fact that she maintained 100 percent of her clients during the transition. One of the first obstacles Donna had to tackle without her mentor, was a huge audit from the IRS for one of Willie May’s accounts. Prior to that, Willie May only had to defend her bookkeeping on one other audit in all her years in business, which she won. Willie May’s encouraging mentoring skills, which included a large dose of good business ethics, gave Donna the confidence she needed for the challenge. There was no need to be afraid or nervous about the IRS, she said. “If you know your field, you know you did your job, you need only supply the documentation of proof to win an audit,” which she did. That was an incredible start for Donna and her new business. She wanted to keep her reputation as spotless and A-1 as Willie May had; and provide the best service she could for her clients. That’s been her business plan and so far it’s held up. Donna observed that the key to her success has been her personal relationship with her clients. “I love my clients. I take a personal interest in each one of them, and I think they know it,” she said. Donna sits down with a new client to evaluate what would be the best plan of action for them and customizes a service for their needs. “There’s no room for greed,” she said of her evaluation of services; once again, thinking only of her clients. Donna Jeffries has a great respect for people and many times goes the extra mile for them. She’s been known to go to a shut-in’s home to pick up the paperwork to do her taxes for her. Serving on the board for Main Street Bartow, Inc., Donna volunteers her services as treasurer, and prepares a treasurer’s report for monthly meetings of the board, as well as prepares the taxes for the not-for-profit organization. With her influx of clients bringing paperwork on a weekly basis, her busy tax season schedule and the government’s increasing need to find more regulations and requirements for the bookkeeping business, Donna and her staff of one, Michelle Littlejohn, stay busy to provide a list of services a mile long for her clients; including, but certainly not limited to, general bookkeeping, payroll, sales tax preparation, tax notices and penalties issues, new business consulting, tax preparation for individuals and businesses; and a list of other services such as financial planning,

Donna Jeffries (seated) and Michelle Littlejohn gladly take the stress of taxes, bookkeeping and accounting from their clients. “We structure our services around their needs.”

FASFA assistance and insurance assistance. “Our services range from the smallest of deeds to full charge bookkeeping and accounting. Our goal is to make our clients’ jobs less stressful and to provide them accurate and reliable help. We structure our services around their needs,” Donna said. If she comes across a challenge, she’ll work to overcome it. She and Michelle are continuously in training through webinars and seminars and online classes to keep up with the latest changes in tax law. “Willie May taught me to know your field,” Donna said. “If you get stumped and have to dig your way out of a hole, stay with it until you do. It’s a learning experience.” Another thing Willie May taught her: work hard and maintain your honesty. Know your clients. Reach out and help others; and remember, there’s no need for greed. “Willie May hand-picked me and hand-trained me,” she smiled. “She kept me in stitches and sometimes tears. She was my best friend - I miss her dearly.”

Bartow’s Dancing Under the Stars If you like Dancing With the Stars, you won’t want to miss Bartow’s Dancing Under the Stars, returning Dec. 4 at the Bartow Civic Center, 2250 S. Floral Ave. Tickets are on sale until Dec. 3. The premiere gala was one of the top fundraising events in Bartow in 2014: a fundraiser with a touch of elegance and sophistication not seen in years, consisting of social dancing to a live, five-piece band, catered dinner and performances by two of the top couples in U.S. Competitive DanceSport. Response was such that afterward then-Mayor Pat Huff said Bartow needed more of this type of event. Proving to be a successful fundraiser in 2014, this year’s gala has partnered with The Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce Foundation and its cultural arts initiative. Chamber Executive Director Jeff Clark called the partnership a natural fit between the business and arts communities. “Arts and culture-related activities and events such as Dancing Under The Stars can provide economic benefits to our community. They create jobs, attract investments, generate tax revenues and stimulate local economies through tourism and consumer purchases,” said Clark. “They also enhance quality of life, enriching local amenities and attracting young professionals.” This year’s proceeds will be directed toward the Foundation’s programs and will include a contribution to help maintain Care To Dance, a Bartow-based wellness program using ballroom dance

and music to assist those with mild to severe cognitive and physical challenges associated with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other neurological conditions. Among the highlights at last year’s event were the performances by Sergey Barsukov and Maria Sidnjova (2014 U.S. American Smooth Rising Star Champions), and Nazar Norov and Irina Kudryashova, (U.S. American Rhythm Vice Champions, 2014 US American Rhythm Rising Star Champions). The reception each couple received for their performances was such that the teams eagerly agreed to the request for a return engagement. “We had an amazing time dancing in Bartow last year. It was a special time for us and one of our final performances before taking a year off,” said Barsukov and Sidnjova. The couple recently took time off from competing. “We are readying to resume our competition schedule and this event will again be memorable to us as it will be our first performance after the break and our first show as husband and wife. We look forward to performing for our friends at Dancing Under the Stars and share our love of dance and how much it means to us.” Norov and Kudryashova echoed similar sentiments. “We are thrilled to come back to Bartow this December and perform for the good people of Polk County, who gave us such a warm welcome last year,” the couple said. “We hope we can again make them happy with our performance and help raise money for this great cause!”
