$5 Million Loan Approved for


Main St., Wilson, Water Projects


Borrowing of $5 million to pay
for Main Street redesign, exten-
sion of water lines to newly-
annexed parcels of property, and
improvements to North Wilson
Avenue and realignment of
Blount Street was approved by
the Bartow city commission on
Monday.
The loan, to be repaid over 20
years, will come from the Florida
League of Cities pooled loan fund.
That program allows participat-
ing cities to borrow through the
League at lower costs because the
loans of several cities are pooled.
Fin. Dir. David Wright said the
city expects to get an interest rate
of around four percent for the


loan.
Jim Duane, executive director
of the Community
Redevelopment Agency, said that
the city will receive $2 million
from the Florida Dept. of
Transportation to help pay for the
Main Street redesign.
The loan will provide $2.7 mil-
lion to pay for the city's share of
the redesign of Main Street, plus
$1.5 million for extension of the
water system and $800,000 to
four-lane Wilson Avenue at Van
Fleet Drive and other improve-
ments to accommodate theLowe's
Home Improvement Center.
The water system improve-
ments are:


ASSESSING THE DAMAGE, Bartow High
School Assistant Principal Mike Butler looks at
what used to be a giant water oak in front of BHS
on the corner of Broadway and Tharp Street. The
tree, estimated to be 40 to 50 years old, had to be
cut down because of damage sustained over time


Extension of water service to
U.S. Highway 98 North and E.F.
Griffin Road.
Extension of water lines to
U.S. Highway 17 and Bomber
Road.
Upgrading of water lines to
Wellington View.
Extension of water lines on
State Road 60 to Gandy Road.
Relocation of water lines on
Wilson Avenue to serve the
Bartow Meeting House develop-
ment.
Money to repay the loan will
come from Community
Redevelopment Agency revenues
and from water system impact
fees, City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge


and during the recent hurricanes. The space will be
replaced with a set of three flagpoles and a monu-
ment to Thomas Lacy Tharp. BHS officials are dis-
cussing the possibility of selling inscribed bricks
around the flagpoles to help fund the cost of con-
struction. (Staff photo by Rustin Dwyer)


said.
The Main Street redesign,
which has been on the drawing
board for years, will convert Main
Street from a state highway to a
city street (through traffic will be
routed onto Van Fleet Drive) and
make it more pedestrian friendly.
Wilson Avenue is being four-
laned on the south side of Van
Fleet Drive to accommodate
Lowe's. The project also calls for
the realignment of Blount Street
on the south side of the Lowe's
property. Lowe's plans to build on
the former Bartow Ford site.
Both Main Street and the
Lowe's site are within the bound-
aries of the Community
Redevelopment Agency district.
As property values rise within
the district, 90 percent of the
increased taxes go to the CRA,
and it is that money which will be
used to repay both the Main
Street project and work on Wilson
Avenue.
The loan ordinance will come
up for a public hearing on Jan. 18,
one day later than usual because
of the Martin Luther King Day
holiday.
The commission also:
Heard Al Snapp recommend
that a directional sign for the
library be posted on Floral
Avenue, complain that some recy-
cling bins are poorly designed,
and report that the crossing
guard near Bartow Middle School
leaves after Floral Avenue
Elementary School students are
dismissed but before the middle
school day ends.
Heard Gerald ,Cochran urge
the city to do a better job of patch-
ing potholes. When Mayor Leo
Longworth asked him to provide
a list to city hall, Cochran replied:
"That's not my job."
Noted the city manager's
report that the power cost adjust-
ment charge on January electric
bills is $35.76 per 1,000 kilowatt
hours, unchanged from
December.
Appointed Tom Wheeler to
be a trustee of the police officers
retirement fund.
Passed on first reading an
ordinance opting out of the oppor-
tunity to set up a pre-election day
polling place at city hall.
Renewed a mutual aid agree-
ment with the Polk County sher-
iff's office.
Proclaimed Jan. 17 as
Martin Luther King/George
Gause Day in Bartow.
Designated Mayor Leo
Longworth to recommend some-
one for appointment to the
Bartow Housing Authority.

Two Women Honored


For Getting Involved


Two women who chose to get
involved Whgn they saw two chil-
dren walking on the highway at
night were recognized by the
Bartow city commission.
The women, Linda Whitfield
and Carol Lewis, were presented
with certificates by Police Chief
Erik Sandvik.
The two women saw a 14-year-
old boy and an 8-year-old girl


walking on the highway at night,
and .-tuppI, d to see what was the
matter, Sandvik told the city com-
mission.
The women discovered that the
children, who were not identified
by Sandvik, were running away
from home because of abuse by
their mother, the chief said.
After taking the children to the
police department, the two


women remained with them until
,they v.ere,turned over to the cus-
tody of the Dept. of Children and
Families.
Sandvik commended the
women "for your caring for your
fellow men."
Ms. Lewis called the brother
who took his little sister out of the
home "the real hero."


Cable TV Problems Caused by


Hurricanes, Comcast VP Says


Problems with Comcast Cable
TV reception: in Bartow was
largely related to problems asso-
ciated with the three hurricanes
that swept through Polk County,
and have been resolved, according
to Rod Dagenias, Comcast vice-
president.: : .
His response came to a request
by City Crmminksioner Pat Huff
two weeks earlier that the city
notify Comcast of complaints that
commissioners had received
about CATV reception.
Dagenias told the commission
he first learned of the complaints
when called by a newspaper
reporter.
"We are concerned about ser-
vice issues," he told the commis-
sion.
Hurricane Charley affected
25 miles of cable lines/and put a
ower out of commission, he said.
In September, a mosquito con-
rol aircraft hit. aComcast tower,
e said.
Hurricane .Jeanne knocked
own a number of lines from
ATV lines to cable customers'
ones, he said..,:
"Now things: -are back to nor-
aa," Dagenias: told the commis-
on.
SHe said 'th-t. typically, two to


three percent of cable customers
make service complaints each
month; in Bartow, the number is
less than two percent, he said.
Comcast will offer high-speed
modem connections to the
Internet within a few weeks, he
said.
Huff told Dagenias that the
Bartow cable system "has an
awful lot of momentary lapses"
ranging from a few seconds to an
hour. He also said he has gotten
complaints about the cost of cable
service, and about commercials
blocking out portions of sports
programming and MTV telecasts.
"The main thing is that rates
keep increasing and the service
doesn't get any better," Huff said.
'He said customers complain
that Comcast fails to respond to
service complaints, and that cus-
tomers had to pay for cable ser-
vice when service was interrupted
by the hurricane.
Dagenias said that Comcast
automatically made adjustments
for the time that service was
interrupted by hurricanes.
He said that service com-
plaints "are old news."
The scheduling of commercials
is a decision made by broadcast-
ers, not Comcast, he said.


Some of the temporary outages
are caused when Comcast does
maintenance or diagnostic tests
on the system, he said; most are
scheduled late at night.
"If there is an issue, we will
resolve it," Dagenias said.
Huff said that the phone num-
ber of the local Comcast office is
unlisted.
Dagenias replied that all calls
go to a toll-free number in
Sarasota, a system that automat-
ically brings up a customer's
account record with each call.
Huff said that the city's fran-
chise with Comcast calls for
annual performance tests.


Dagenias replied that
Comcast's tests required by the
Federal Communications
Commission go beyond the
requirements of the franchise
with Bartow.
The results of those tests are
available for.the city's inspection,
he said.
Mayor Leo Longworth thanked
Dagenias for providing a new
camera for cablecasts of city com-
mission meetings.
Dagenias said he plans to
attend another commission meet-
ing in 30 days "to see how we're
doing."


Jury selection began this
morning for Nelson Ivan
Serrano, the man accused of the
quadruple murder at Erie
Manufacturing in Bartow seven
years ago.
Serrano, 66, a former partner
in the Erie Manufacturing com-
pany, is charged with the execu-
tion-style murders of George E.
Gonsalves, 69, co-owner of the
company; Frank Dosso, 35, man-


ager for the company; George
Patisso, Jr., 26, employee of the
company; and Diane Patisso, 26,
all of Winter Haven.
All four were killed with small
caliber gunshot wounds to the
head, investigators said.
Serrano was arrested for the
murders nearly five years later,
Tifter "countless hours" of investi-
gation.

Airport Is Debt Free


Although it showed a small
operating loss after deprecia-
tion Bartow Municipal Airport
ended its fiscal year on Sept. 30
with no debt and with more than
$1.5 million in the bank.
The airport incurred $87,265
in uninsured damage to airport
buildings, and ended the year
showing an operating loss of
$31,064 on revenues of more
than $2.7 million, Tierso Nunez,
external auditor for the airport,
told the airport authority. The
authority is made up of Bartow's
five city 'c0htnissioners, and
meets once a month to oversee
management of the airport.


Depreciation of airport build-
ings was booked at more than
$500,000, and the airport had a
positive cash flow of $571,387,
taking in that much more money
than in spent, Nunez said.
Toward the end of the fiscal
year, the airport paid off its final
indebtedness for airport con-
struction projects, making the
airport debt-free for the first time
in many years.
The management letter -
that portion of the audit which
reportiSany problems or recom-
mendations had no negative
comments.

By LETA WRIGHT

During the holidays, Marilyn
Henderson brought a picture to
us of Fort Meade Springs, lo-
cated east of the Peace River.
The pool and property was
operated by Cody and Mary
Shirley during the '30s and '40s,
and it was the highlight of Fort
Meade.
The building pictured ,was on
the north side of the swimming
pool and was used for picnics,
parties and dances.
On the west side of the pool
were rows of dressing rooms and
south of them was the stand for
refreshments. This complex was
so popular that people come
from all over to participate.
It would be nice to have this
type of entertainment again, be-
cause we can say that those

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV

Ugly 'Maters Have Feelings, Too


Editorial





Page,,


Florida's UglyRipe Tomato is
back in the news.
Clearly, the doctrine of
Political Correctness has not
reached the tomato industry, and
as America's most vocal critic of
the PC movement, I suppose I
should be happy about that. .
But knowing that tomatoes
have feelings, too, it's time to
defend a piece of produce that
looks like it was designed by
Picasso with a hangover.
To paraphrase badly -
Forrest Gump, ugly is as ugly
does.
The UglyRipe tomato, raised
in North Carolina and New
Jersey in warmer weather, is
grown in Plant City in the Winter.
Like so many things that come
from New Jersey, it is a welcome
Winter visitor, if not a particular-
ly attractive one.
(Okay, New Jersey-Americans
are people too, but I have never
forgiven the New Jersey Turnpike
for charging 'me tolls to travel a
section that was under construc-
tion where stop-and-go traffic


never got above 15 miles per
hour. It's been more than 40
years, but the memory lingers.)
The UglyRipe, its creator says,
is a product that "has been bred
and cross-bred numerous times."
Possibly in-bred once or twice too
often, if you follow me.
The result is like those "If They
Made It" hybrid 'composites on
late night TV.
I have figured it out, and
remember, you read it here first:
the UglyRipe Tomato is the result
of cross-breeding a Plant City
strawberry with a New Jersey
pumpkin. I don't know if they
grow pumpkins in New Jersey,
but I am a journalist, and am not
one to let a simple detail like that
get in the way of a good story. But
-if you quote me, I'll say I was
misquoted.
Anyway, the UglyRipe tomato
is to tomatoes what Phyllis Diller
is to Miss America, if you get my
drift. And I'm sure Phyllis
Diller's mother thought she was
beautiful, at least after the
cataracts got the best of her


vision.
Florida has standards for
'maters, or what it calls "round
tomatoes." Well, that's simple
enough; UglyRipes aren't round.
And since, as has been widely
reported (by me), it is a hybrid
cross between a 'berry and a
punkin, it arguably is not even a
tomato.
The developer of the UglyRipe
says it tastes better, more tomato-
like, than conventional round
tomatoes. Truth to tell, I don't
particularly like tomatoes unless
they have been processed into
their Highest and Best Use, pizza
sauce, or squeezed into juice,
diluted with vodka, and given a
little kick with Worcestershire
and Tobasco and topped with cel-
ery salt.
The last time I wrote about
UglyRipes, I was inundated with
reports from. people who went
out and bought a few as a show
of support for the 'Mater That
Nature Forgot.
Okay, not exactly inundated,
maybe, but my son went out and


got one. And when's the last timc
one of your kids ate a fresh veg-
etable because you recommended
it, huh, Bo?
Joe Procacci, the Philadelphia-
based grower of UglyRipes
(would that be Philadelphia,
New Jersey, or Philadelphia,
North Carolina, or is there a
Philadelphia in Florida that has
escaped my attention?) wants
Congress to disband the Florida
Tomato Committee.
Somewhere in there between
saving Social Security and pro-
viding affordable healthcare,
Congress definitely should get
involved in deciding what.shape
tomatoes should be, right?
That is highly preferable to
seceding from the union, or boy-
cotting the BCS Bowl Series, or
dumping tea into Boston Harbor.
Joe Procacci may have a mis-
shapen view of what constitutes a
beautiful tomato.
But you've got to admit that
the man's a marketing genius.


Avoid Tsunami Scams;


Pick Your Own Charity


We have long believed that the most rep-
rehensible thieves are the con artists who
prey on the elderly, in particular the "bank
examiner" con men who appeal *to peo-
ple's wish to do the right thing.
(In the bank examiner swindle, a person
claiming to be a bank examiner asks the
victim to help catch a crooked bank teller
by withdrawing. money from his or her
bank account, and giving it to the "bank
examiner." Neither the money nor the
"examiner" is ever seen again. Real bank
examiners never enlist the help of bank
customers to trap a crook.)
There is now a new contender for the
title of most reprehensible con artist: any-
one who preys on the public's outpouring
of financial relief for the victims of the
tsunami di.sas.ter. .
An Associated Press story last week
quoted the FBI and various state and con-
sumer watchdog agencies as warning
Americans to beware of scams purporting
to help victims of the most horrendous nat-
ural disaster in modern history.
The FBI warned that one fraudulent
"relief" website was spreading a "Trojan"
virus to infect computers of those who
responded.
The Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement
warned of Internet appeals from organiza-
tions calling themselves The Foundation
for Victims of Flood and Earthquake, and
the Tsunamis Disaster Help Funds.
This newspaper has begun receiving E-
mails that are a spin-off of the crooked
banker/crooked government official
scam, those preposterous offers to share 30
percent of millions of dollars, in stolen
funds if only you will provide your bank,
account nu miber.
In addition to possible rip-offs by phony
relief appeals, law enforcement authorities
are concerned about identify theft by
scammers who seek to obtain credit card
numbers, Social Security numbers, and
other personal information.
The United States government already


has committed $350 million to relief
efforts. While that is a handsome sum, it
represents less than $2 for every American
citizen. We suspect that private contribu-
tions will far exceed that amount.
There is a simple way to avoid tsunami
charity scams:
Give to a known agency or organization,
one that you select. There is no reason to
respond to appeals over the Internet, or by
phone.
Almost every church with a national
hierarchy has established a mechanism for
getting relief funds to the Indian Ocean
region. If yours doesn't, or if you have no
church affiliation, call any major church in
the community, or ask a friend to direct
your contribution through his church.
International service and civic organiza-
tions also are. setting up mechanisms for
channeling contributions where they are
needed. Once again, if you don't have such
an affiliation, ask a friend who does.
And there are obvious choices like the
American Red Cross.
It is reprehensible that the con artists are
using the tsunami tragedy to line their
pockets.
But it is easy to defeat them.
Hang up the phone; hit the "delete" but-
ton on your E-mail server.
Pick your charity; don't let an unknown.
"charity" pick you.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Why Not Rush Out and Buy a Car or Two?


I don't usually *pay much
attention to automobile ads, but
it seems like they are taking up
50 percent of broadcast time on
television.
It seems that most of the cars
on sale in Georgia are foreign-
made, mostly Japanese.
I prefer to buy American
when car shopping. The names
on some of the cars for sale
sound strange, sort of like buy a
Sushi and we'll throw in a four -
door Tamale..
I did buy a VW Beetle years
ago, because it didn't take up


much space in the church park-
ing lot. I was the organist at the
time. There was plenty of room
in it for me and my organ music.
It was kind of cute, too tree-
ripened tangerine.
It didn't even need anti-freeze
in the radiator and would go up
the hill when there was snow on
the ground so I could get out of
the subdivision.
When I went into real estate
and stopped "organizing," I had
to go out and buy a series of big,
heavy, four-door sedans so I
could haul couples from out of


town and their children around.
I will never forget the couple
whose kid squashed a tomato
into my radio grill while the par-
ents and I were looking at a five-
bedroom house. I became
known at the dealership as the
lady with the tomato. It took
three trips to get rid of it and the
man in charge of radios was get-
ting a funny look on his face
when I drove in. The radio
speaker had to be replaced
because tomatoes are acid and
will eat up your radio, given
enough time.

I am not about to go out and
buy another car. I only need one
car and mine is perfect, even
after being hit by a carload of
choir boys at an intersection the
day after Christmas last year.
The dealer who fixed it gave
me a list of all the parts they had
to replace, which was about a
page and a half long. I didn't
know it had that many parts.
They really did a marvelous job
fixing it. It looked like a brand
new car: Everything was perfect
and still is.
I think I will take Petunia T.
Cruiser (her
name) to the car

pie there just

out. She is silver

need one. They;

Indian Hill Farms, owned by
Ann and Tom Winkler and lo-
cated north of Fort Meade, has
been named a certified Florida
Forest Stewardship Forest.
The Florida Forest Steward-
ship Program was designed to
give private non-industrial land-
owners with 25 or more acres of
forested land a multiple use
management plan.
Ann and Tom Winkler's 1124-
acre farm, north of Fort Meade
between the Peace River and
U.S. Highway 17, was once a
phosphate strip mine.
T. 'rrmiah .the hnrd work and


the assistance of the Florida Di-
vision of Forestry and the Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife Commis-
sion, the area has been restored
to productive land with timber
and wildlife.
The property was enrolled in
the Florida Forest Stewardship
Program in 1999 to reclaim the
land which was infested with in-
vasive exotic plants such as co-
gon grass.
"Timber planting, wildlife
food plot establishment, cattle,
sheep and goat grazing, and both
mechanical and herbicide appli-
rnfin kvp ppmiiqirl v fp-


Winkler's to eliminate a severe
exotic problem and create pro-
ductive forest and grazing
lands," Forester Jim Hodlofski
said. "The property helps protect
the water shed of the Peace
River and provide habitat for nu-
merous game and non-game spe-
cies."
After review by Hodlofski, a
forester with the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry, and Lee Taylor
of the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission, the certification
was awarded.

'Citrus Canker Sentinel'


Program Seeks Disease


Polk County is, lucky ... so
far; it is not one of the 11 Florida
counties in which citrus canker
has been found.
Walter Stoltz;. with the U.S.
Dept. of Agriculture "citrus can-
ker sentinel" program, told the
Bartow Rotary Club how his
agency and the Florida Dept. of
Agriculture battle the spread of
the plant disease.
Citrus.canker causes lesions
on the leaves, fruit and stems of
all, citrus trees; key lime trees
are the .most vulnerable. The
bacterial disease causes leaves
and fruit to fall off the trees.
It is spread by wind-borne
rain, by contact with equipment
and clothing of 'grove workers,
and by planting of infected trees.
"The disease is epidemic in'


Florida right now," he said.
It was first imported into the
United States from Southeast
Asia, and was discovered in Flor-
ida for the first time in 1912,
Stoltz said. That infestation
ended in 1933.
It was next found in 1986, and
was "declared eradicated" in
1994; though some don't believe
the eradication was complete. It
wasfound again in 1995 near
Miami International Airport.
In Florida, the state's depart-
ment of agriculture is responsi-
ble for inspection of groves, and
the USDA citrus canker sentinel
program is responsible for in-
specting trees grown in yards.
The USDA's inspection is a
"completely voluntary" process,
and inspectors must get the per-


mission of property owners to in-
spect their trees, Stoltz said.
"It's a voluntary program
now," he added. "If canker is
found, the rules change."
The nearest infestation to
Polk County presently is in the
Orlando area, he said.
The primary objective is to
prevent canker from getting into
citrus groves, he said. When can-
ker is found, all trees within
1,900 feet must be destroyed, he
said, a devastating blow to a
grove.
USDA inspectors try to check
one tree in every 440 feet, and
try to inspect trees every 60
days. If they find canker, they
notify the Florida Dept. of Agri-
culture.

Weight Watchers Offers Slimming Tips


After a week of working hard
on resolutions, your resolve may
have begun to slip already, but
working hard now to make
healthy living a habit will only
strengthen your motivation.
Weight Watchers offers the
following tips to ensure your
weight loss resolution becomes a
habit before February.
Do:
Monitor your progress.
Weighing yourself once a week,
logging your food and activity.
and monthly sessions with a tape
measure all record progress and
keep you motivated.
Choose to eat healthful,
wholesome foods from all the food
groups. That's the only way
you're assured of getting the es-
sential nutrients you need.
Exercise more often. While a
recommended goal for weight
loss is about an hour a day of
moderate activity, anything more
than what you're doing now is a
plus.
Eat breakfast every day.
Take a multiple vitamin-
mineral supplement.
Eat plenty of fruits, vegeta-
bles, low and non-fat dairy prod-
ucts and whole grains. They en-
hance weight loss, provide eating

Learn positive coping skills,

Drink at least six cups of
water every day.
Eat the foods that satisfy

baked potato satisfies others.
Find what satisfies you and in-
clude it in your food plan.
Benefit from the experience
of others. You can never have too
many tips and strategies' in your
weight loss tool kit.
Don't:
Forget that calories count.
With all the hype about weight
loss, eating fewer calories and ex-
ercising more calories away is
the bottom line in losing weight.
Follow a diet. Learning and
sticking to healthy habits is what
ultimately gets you to and keeps
you at a healthy weight.
Risk your health to drop a
few pounds. Losing weight im-
proves your health but not if
you do it with a crash diet or one
that promotes depriving yourself
of essential foods.'
Go it alone. Getting support
from others family friends or a


weight-loss group makes the
weight loss journey less lonely."
Be duped by the latest fad.
Find what works for you and
stick with it.
Obsess. The most successful
weight losers have learned the
skill of flexible restraint limit-
ing what they eat, but doing it in
a way that allows for the ups and
downs of daily living.
Drink your calories, eat
them. Solid food provides'greater
eating satisfaction.
Let others tell you what's
right for you. You need to lose
weight for yourself, at your own
pace and in your own way.
Set unrealistic goals. Shoot
for an initial weight loss goal
that's about 10 percent of your
current body weight and expect
to lose one to two pounds per
week.
Get distracted. Losing
weight takes time and it's easy to
let life derail your efforts. Take
the time to recommit yourself to
losing weight on a regular basis,
so that it stays on your list of pri-
orities.

Gause Academy's and Gause

Jeppesen began after staffs at,
both schools noticed many stu-

that the problems might be re-
lated to vision problems.*
A vision screening of Gause

was done by Traviss Technical
Center's optical department.
School staffs then looked to de-
velop intervention efforts to

After leading nearly the en-
tire game on Saturday at
Jenkins Field House, late turn-
overs doomed the Mocs to their
third straight regular season
loss for the first time in 10 years.
"There's a little bit of shock
because you don't expect some-
thing like this on your home
court," Florida Southern Head
Coach Tony Longa said.
The Mocs (10-3, 1-2) were
leading by six with four minutes
to play when Florida Tech's
Ryan Maultsby caught fire.
Maultsby, who was held
scoreless up to that point, reeled
off 11 unanswered points on just
two field goal attempts to give
the Panthers-(6-6, 1-2) a lead
that would hold up for a 57-50
victory.
"Florida Tech has shown all
year they are capable of beating
people," Longa said. "Any league
win for us is going to be tough."
Florida Southern has been

able to hold their past two oppo-
nents to 38.6 percent shooting,
but the Mocs haven't been able
to capitalize, mostly due to turn-
overs. Last week against Lynn
University and Metro State, the
Mocs committed a combined 45
turnovers.
Against the Panthers, Florida
Southern only turned the ball
over 10 times, but this time it
was the, timing of the turnovers
that proved costly. Florida
Southern committed six of the
turnovers in the second half,
three of which came in the final
minutes and led directly to eight
Panther points.
Despite poor shooting in the
first half, including missed' lay-
ups and a sub .500 performance
at the free throw line, the Mocs
were able to enter halftime lead-
ing 26-18.
In the second half, the Mocs
held off multiple surges by the
Panthers until Maultsby's one-
man scoring run. In the final six
minutes, however, Florida
Southern fell apart, shooting
one-for-six from the floor and
three of six from the line.'
Longa partially attributes the
loss to the key injuries to fresh-
man guards Hurley Dunbar and
Dominic Girod.

"When you're down your
two most athletic wings, it's just
going to be hard to beat any-
body," Longa said. "Obviously
we've got to go back to the draw-
ing board and figure out a way to
be competitive in the league with
what we have, but its going to be
very tough."
Even without those two,
Longa said his team had shown
the ability to be competitive
without them in the past, just
not on Saturday in the second
half.
"We're just not in synch. We
just don't have the continuity we
need," Longa said, noting that
last week's practice schedule was
interrupted by minor injuries all
over the team.
With the loss, the Mocs des-
perately need a win on Wednes-
day at home against Rollins Col-
lege to bring their conference re-
cord back to .500.
"I've been saying for weeks
and weeks that reality is going
to settle in," Longa said. "Reali-
ty's going to settle in when
you're down so many key guys.
We just don't have an athletic
wing who can make plays right
now and that's a big part of our
problem."

Edfors Named Head Coach

Of Webber Volleyball Team


Tim Edfors, an alumni of
Webber International Univer-
sity, will take over the position
of head volleyball coach for the
Warriors.
Edfors brings 15 years of
coaching experience. During his
time in the coaching ranks, he
has worked with many levels of
athletes, ranging from beginners
at the age of 12 to working with
the University of-Florida volley-
ball team.
For the past two years, Edfors
has been assistant coach for the
South Florida Community Col-
lege volleyball program. At
SFCC, he has helped raise the
volleyball program to back-to-


back successful seasons.
With all of his experience and
energy, Edfors plans to motivate
the Warriors to work hard and
take pride in the program. When
this is accomplished, the team
will start showing the victories
he expects on and off the court,
he said.
As a former teacher of seven
years, Edfors demands his team
be more successful in the class-
room than on the court, he said,
but will settle for nothing less
than their best on the court.
Edfors believes his strengths
are communication skills, experi-
ence and the ability to motivate.
