Students 'Gift of Second Sight'


'BETTER? .OR WORSE?" asked Dr. "Children First." The program is a joint ef
Brighid Williams to Gause Academy third-grade between Jeppesen Vision Quest, Florida Blue Cr
student Jazzmen Childres (above) aboard the Traviss Technical Center's optical department
Jeppesen Vision Quest bus at Gause Riverside cam- other volunteers. When the bus came to Gau
pus in Fort Meade on Jan. 21. Earlier that day, Dr. Bartow campus, an astounding 92 percent of
Williams was able to give a vision test to fourth- students there were recognized with a need
grader Dalton Lyon (below) as well. The bus visit is glasses and outfitted accordingly. (Staff photo
part of a vision health program at Gause called Rustin Dwyer and Janice Jared)


By RUSTIN DWYER and
JANICE JARED

Students at both Gause
Academy campuses in Bartow
and Fort Meade may not be view-
ing the world through rose col-
ored glasses, but with free vision
testing and eyeglass fitting, they
are at least viewing the world
through some sort. of lens.
Gause Reading Coach Carolyn
Keith said teachers had reported
students complaining about
headaches and some blurred
vision, and would constantly put
their heads down while reading.
Rather than approach this as a
disciplinary problem, Mrs. Keith
decided to investigate another
avenue.
SShe knew there was a need at
the school for eyeware, and began
effort searching for some form of help.
*oss, She found it in an old partnership
and 'with Jeppesen VisionQuest,
ise's Florida Blue Cross and Traviss
the Technical Center.
for When help came, Mrs. Keith
s by was astounded to find that 92
percent of the students at the
Bartow campus would need glass-
Ses immediately. The bus would
later pay a visit to the Riverside
A campus as well.
Five years ago, Gause
Academy was entered into a part-
nership with Jeppesen.


VisionQuest, a non-profit agency
based in Sanford that travels to
schools with a high percentage of
free and reduced lunches to con-
duct vision screenings and outfit
students in need with free glass-
es.
Unfortunately, the state of
Florida reduced the agency's
funding by 10 percent in 2000.
That cut forced Jeppesen to dras-
tically discontinue its roving bus
service to schools all over the
state four days a week.
Thankfully for the students at
Gause and all over the state,
Florida Blue Cross stepped in and
resumed funding for the bus.
The bus has now resumed its
routine of traveling all over the
state, outfitting needy students.
The return of funding for the
Jeppesen bus helps out in anoth-
er way as well. With Jeppesen
focusing on, children, and
Medicaid no longer covering adult
glasses, the Lions Club can focus
its vision efforts more on adults.
Pat Herrington, the bus coordi-
nator, said Jeppesen was "very
grateful" Blue Cross helped to
resume their bus service.
Normally, the bus travels to
schools to outfit children without
insurance, and are able to make
their glasses on site and get them
back to them the same day.
Because of the large number of
children in need at Gause, the bus


will take the prescriptions back to
Sanford to be made before they
are mailed back to the school.
It's a demanding, but reward-
ing endeavor, said Mrs.
Herrington, who receives a con-
stant stream of thankful letters
from children with newfound
sight.
"To see that child put on that
first pair of glasses and just go,
'wow' because they can see, that
part is so rewarding," Mrs.
Herrington said.
However, it's not always a pos-
itive experience, she added.
Jeppesen can't see children with-
out authorization from their par-.
ents. For some reason, that's not
always an easy thing to get.
"Look at this right here, this
girl right here has been unable to
get glasses because her parents
have refused to sign this form
four times," Mrs. Herrington
said, shaking her head.
She said she couldn't under-
stand how a parent wouldn't take
advantage of something so benefi-
cial, and more importantly, free.
Jeppesen is working to get the
parental consent forms made a
part of enrollment to cut down on
problems like this in the future.
For now, the bus will continue
rolling and Mrs. Herrington will
keep doing what she loves.
Jeppesen isn't alone on this
one, though. The agency has more


than 400 optometrists all over the
state who donate their time to
make four pairs of glasses a
month, on average.
Teachers and students from
Traviss Technical Center lend a
hand, as well. Mary Summers
teaches a class on optimetric
assisting, and as part of the class,
students were on hand at Gause
to help outfit students with new
pairs of specs.
"Polk County is unique
because of the optimetric assist-
ing program. Through the school,
we make 500 to 600 pairs of glass-
es a year plus countless adjust-
ments," Mrs. Summers said.
"It's great because this is our
clinical (training), plus it's an out-
reach program," she added.
One of the Traviss students,
Rachel Seward, said the outreach
aspect of the program is what
drew her to the field in the first
place.
Seward, who is a member of
Grace Church in Lakeland, said
she chose optimetric assisting as
an avenue to get her more
involved with mission work. After
graduating from Traviss, she
plans to travel to India to help
outfit needy people with glasses.
"I'm just trying to do the best I
can to give people vision and give
children vision," Seward said.
"When I do leave this world, I
want to leave my mark."

ow Start-up and conversion char-'
63- ter schools are a very real entity
in the Polk County school system.
At the Tiger Bay Club meeting
on Monday, a 10-person panel
from both sides of the issue, dis-
cussed just how successful, or
detrimental, the large number of
charters in Polk have been.
The panel discussion, moderat-
ed by S.L. Frisbie, IV, fielded
written questions from members
of the audience. The questions
involved the specifics of charter
law, the purpose of charter
schools, and their relationship,
with Polk County public schools.
When asked about the driving
force of charter schools, two dif-
fering opinions came out.
Robin Gibson, president of the
Lake Wales Charter School
District, said charter schools were
a necessity because of a desire
from students and parents for
improved education options. In
Lake Wales, 17 percent of stu-
dents (843) were opting to attend
outside of their school zones, he
said.
"That meant we were losing a
lot of our top students," Gibson
said. "Kids were split from their
neighborhoods. It was fragment-
ing our town."
at Outspoken School Board
Member Frank O'Reilly accused
charter schools of only having one
goal in mind money.


The festival will feature talks
on history, musical programs,
comedy and dance routines, along
with lots of good food and vendors
offering crafts and other items.
On Saturday, Feb. 5, a special
history program is planned froin
10 a.m. to noon.
The program will begin with
Dr. Claudia Slate, history profes-
sor at Florida Southern College.
She will discuss Zora. Neale
Hurston.
Ms. Hurston, an African-
American author, wrote the liter-
ary classic "Their Eyes Were
Watching God."
At 11 a.m., Dr. Rosalyn
Howard, professor of anthropolo-
gy and director of North
American Indian Studies at the


University of Central Florida,
will present "Black Seminoles."v.
Culling information from
recent discoveries, Dr. Howard
will discuss Florida's black
Indians.
In the afternoon on Saturday,
jazz musician Eric Darius will
offer entertainment, along with
singer Amber Young; poetry by
Courtney Davis; Lake Mary High
School and Dr. Phillip High
School Step Teams; dance groups
including Spanish/Latin dancers
from Orlando, Crystal's world of
Dance and Illusions; a pan-
tomime by Jasmine; and a one-
man band, Bavu.
Sunday's program runs from 1
to 5 p.m., with gospel ;youth
choirs, mime group Eternal


"Conversion charter schools that the start-up funding comes
are converted for one reason and from the federal government, and
one reason only," O'Reilly said, would not come to the county oth-
"They receive $250,000 for two erwise.
years, and that's it." Another question centered on
Gibson was quick to point out accountability and asked how


A FOUR-YEAR-OLD child was referred to a
juvenile fire setter program after apparently setting
fire to this home at 1835 Valencia Drive in Bartow
Thursday morning. Bartow firefighters were called
to the home at 9:44 a.m., and were able to save the
family's pet snake and Chihuahua, according to
Deputy Chief Bobby Pitman. The residents of the
home had already escaped. Investigators discovered


praise, poetry, singers Under
Divine Care (UDC), and competi-
tors in the regional Negro spiritu-
al competition.
Throughout the festival, there
will be vendors, raffles, games,
storytellers and children's activi-
ties.
The 54th Massachusetts Civil
War Regiments and Florida
Frontiersmen will be encamped
on the grounds, and radio sta-
tions have planned remote broad-
casts.

year, with proceeds used for the
preservation of the L.B. Brown

included a more extensive scholar
program, which will return next
year.

dent at the home reported that the child had run
out of the bedroom right before the fire was discov-
ered. "Hopefully this incident and the program will
convince this little one not to play with fire in the
future," Pitman said. (Photo no Pitman)

Bartow DAR Meeting

Feb. 7 at C & C Bank


Bartow Chapter Daughters of
the American Revolution will
meet Monday, Feb. 7, at 2 p.m.,
irithe community room of Citrus
& Chemical Bank.
The DAR Good Citizen stu-
dents from Bartow High School
and Fort Meade Middle Senior
High School will be honored
guests.
All visiting DAR members
and those interested in member-
ship are invited to attend.
At the January meeting,
hosted by Lilajane Craig and
Pauline Snapp, a program on
how Bermuda saved America's
first settlement was presented
by Carol Schmidt.
In 1609. the ship Sea Venture.
left England in a fleet of ships
with supplies and settlers for the
then two-year-old Jamestown
Colony in Virginia, Mrs. Schmidt
said.
After seven weeks at sea, the
ship was blown off course and
away from the fleet in a fierce
storm. Land was sighted within
three days (the coast of.Ber-
muda), and the ship became
wedged between coral forma-
tions.
All 150 men, women, and chil-
dren were saved, and many sup-
plies salvaged, she said.
SGeorge Somers, commander of
the ship, directed expeditions of
the islands and ordered work to
build new ships from'salvaged
lumber from the wrecked ship
and native cedar trees.
After 10 months, the casta-
ways built Deliverance and a


smaller ship, Patience, and set
sail for Jamestown with some
settlers and supplies. They ar-
rived to find that less than 70
colonists out of the 250 had sur-
vived, and they were preparing
to abandon the settlement after
Indian hostilities and a Winter
of "starving time," Mrs. Schmidt
said.
Sir Thomas Gates, governor of
the Jamestown Settlement, pre-
pared to abandon the settlement
and put the survivors on to the
Deliverance shipment back to
England.
Before leaving, word came
that Thomas West was sailing
up the James River with three
ships and 150 new settlers and
supplies.
Thus, Mrs. Schmidt said, a
profound turning point in history
occurred when West ordered
Gates to turn around. The Deliv-
erance's late arrival stalled the
plans to abandon Jamestown
and allowed our nation to begin.

.Daughters of the American
Revolution and the Bartow

Chapter programs' for the
Spring meetings include recogni-
tion of DAR Good Citizens, win-
ners of the DAR American His-
tory Essay contest, a visit from
the Florida State Society DAR
Regent, and participation in the
DAR State Conference in Or-
lando.


Thirteen members of the Fort
Meade Garden Club were
treated to a diverse program
during their meeting Jan. 26 at
the Brown House.
After a welcome from Presi-
dent Bettye Barnett, the reading
of the Garden Club Prayer by
Caroline Loadholtes, and the sa-
lute to the flag, minutes were
read and approved and Treas-
urer Eunice Manley reported a
balance of $329.08.
Because the April field trip to
Winter Haven Garden Club Cen-
ter's Butterfly Water Garden has
been canceled due to storm dam-
age, the club decided instead to
journey to Hollis Gardens in
Lakeland.
Barbara Manley, co-chairman
for Fort Meade's Relay for Life,
was introduced by program
Chairman Alice Spieth.
Mrs. Manley gave an over-
view of the event, which began
in 1985 as a surgeon's personal
attempt to raise money for can-
cer research and support, and
has since grown into a nation-
wide fundraising event.
For the last two years, Fort
Meade has been included in Bar-
tow's event, but this year will
hold its own relay again at
Frank S. Battle Field on April 8
and 9.
Because "cancer never sleeps,"


the event centers around an all-
night walk, filled with fun activi-
ties and team competitions, in
an effort to bring our community
together.
This year's theme is "Opera-
tion Red, White, and Blue -
Fighting the Battle Against
Cancer."
Besides cancer research, the
American Cancer Society uses
funds raised by Relays for Life to
support education and informa-
tion, paid medical assistance, fi-
nancial assistance, college schol-
arships, Look Good Feel Bet-
ter programs, and Hope Lodge, a
new facility adjacent to Moffit
Cancer Center.
For more information, call
285-8551 or 688-2326.
Mrs. Spieth also introduced
and welcomed Al Minner, Fort
Meade city manager.
Minner gave the Garden Club
a detailed account of the city's
process of dealing with FEMA
after the three hurricanes of the
Fall of 2004.
Fort Meade has submitted
project worksheets to FEMA for
approximately $1 million to be
reimbursed, the largest portion
having been spent on electric
mutual aid contracts. Minner
said he was quite appreciative of
the help Fort Meade received
from electrical workers from

still ongoing, he said.
Besides those projects that
qualified for reimbursement
from federal funds, the City of
Fort Meade also will receive
about $1 million from its insur-

Garden Club members ex-
pressed their gratitude to Min-

storms and the weeks after.
Minner said he had learned so
much through the hurricane or-

never need to use that education
again.
At the close of the meeting,
Mrs. Barnett assembled a count
of all trees that have been
planted or replanted in the com-

school's performance solely on
FCAT scores is dangerous.
"There are other measures one
must look at to see how well a
school has been doing," Wright
said. "We have to look at the total
amount of achievement; don't
look at performance by just one
measure called FCAT."
Accountability can be tricky,
said former Polk County Supt.
Glenn Reynolds. Unlike in the
business world, the school sys-
tem has no control over all
aspects of the final product or
even the ingredients some times.
He said holding a school system
to the same standards as a corpo-
ration is unfair because of the
circumstances involved.
O'Reilly agreed that the cur-
rent grading system could use
some tweaking, especially in the


area of alternative education.
Many drop-out prevention
schools frequently get grades of
"F," but O'Reilly said that is to be
expected at first, at least.
"These are students who did-
n't care and were going to drop
out," O'Reilly said. "They are
never going to be 'A'students, but
they are in school and that's
what is important."
School Board Member Brenda
Reddout said she was wary of the
increasing number of charter
schools and their impact on the
school districts' more prestigious
programs such as International
Baccalaureate and Harrison
School of the Arts.
"We can't be the jewel in the
crown of the I-4 corridor if we
don't allow the Polk County
school system to offer a choice for
the best and brightest students,"
Reddout said.


Whale License Plate Offered


Protect Florida Whales spe-
cialty license plate program, ad-
ministered by Harbor Branch
Oceanographic, has awarded its
first competitive research grant
to support the monitoring, pro-
tection, and study of the severely
endangered North Atlantic right
whale.
A consortium led by the Ma-
rine Resources Council (MRC) in
Palm Bay that also includes As-
sociated Scientists at Woods
Hole (ASWH), in Massachusetts,
and Marineland, in St.
Augustine, Fla., was the recipi-
ent of the $50,000 award.
"Right whales are the most
endangered of all the great
whale species, so we're especially
proud to make this award to an
outstanding group with such
demonstrated commitment to
the critical mission of preserving
this species," Stephen McCul-
loch, executive director of Harbor
Branch's Marine Mammal Re-
search and Conservation pro-
gram, said.
A panel of specialists from
outside Harbor Branch deter-
mines recipients of whale plate
grants.
The new funding will support
:ontinued:efforts of MRC to coor-
linate. local volunteers who
monitor right whales...
It also will allow researchers
;o support efforts to photograph,
identify, and track the whales to
better understand their move-
nents and-habits in hopes of ul-
imately preventing their extinc-
ion.
"The Marine Resource Council
s extremely pleased at this op-
portunity to expand our
Nork,"Jim Egan, MRC executive
director, said.
For many years coordination
)f volunteers has suffered from a
ack of funding, he said, but with
;his new award the group ex-
pects to increase not only the
lumber of whale sightings
throughh improved volunteer co-
)rdination and networking, but
lso the .time whales are effec-
ively tracked.
"This will. go a long way to-
vard.ayqiding ship collisions and
better understanding a unique
piecess that might disappear
roml the earth if we do not learn


to protect it in time," Egan said.
Only about 350 North Atlan-
tic right whales remain in the
world. The waters off Florida
and South Georgia are their only
known calving and nursery
grounds.
Because the whales are diffi-
cult to spot from ships, MRC has
developed a network of 800 vol-
unteers who report sightings of
right whales to the group's hot-
line at 1-888-97-whale. In addi-
tion, volunteers with ASWH and
Marineland keep scheduled vig-
ils on Florida beaches to track
the whales' progress as they mi-
grate.
Woods Hole researchers also
follow right whale migration and
conduct aerial surveys using a
blimp.
Once spotted, the exact loca-
tion of a right whale is relayed
within minutes to a network of
researchers, ports, shipping
lines, and navy vessels so that
collisions can be averted.
The "Protect Florida Whales"
license plate was designed by
world-renowned "artist of the
sea" Wyland and is available at
local County Tax Collector of-
fices statewide. Whale plate pro-
ceeds are used to support vari-
ous programs, including whale
research and rescue efforts at
Harbor Branch.
The institution is also using
plate proceeds to help construct
a marine mammal teaching hos-
pital at its Fort Pierce campus.
Ten percent of plate proceeds
go to the Wyland Foundation to
support education programs that
promote marine mammal and
ocean conservation.
"We thank the thousands of
Florida vehicle owners who have
purchased Protect Florida Whale
Plates," McCulloch said. "With-
out their invaluable support,
such efforts would not be possi-
ble."

21st Annual Lake Wales Mardi Gras

Ready to Let the Good Times Roll


By PAT TURNER
Staff Writer

No one in their wildest
dreams ever expected the Lake
Wales Mardi Gras to last this
long, or to become the biggest
event in this part of central Flor-
ida.
The first parade was started
to honor the memory of Vinton
Davis, local restaurateur, who
loved Mardi Gras. Nettie Davis,
his widow, dressed in her de-
ceased husband's clown suit and
her daughter, Nancy, pulled a "
tacky" little steamboat behind
her car to lead off the first pa-
rade.
Al's Place band was playing
Dixieland on the sidewalk and
the first two krewes showed up.
One, now known as the Wild Or-
der of Loyal Shiners, covered a
pickup truck and themselves in
aluminum foil. The other group,
The Royal Order of Red Swans,
consisted of a flock of females
brandishing plastic pink flamin-
goes. A group of perhaps 1,000

and housewares, such as pots
and pans, dishes, bedding and
other items," Executive Director
Mary Jo Holland-Cancelmo said.

people, according to the late Mrs.
Davis, lined the sidewalks to
watch this curious group strut
their stuff.
From a small beginning the
event has grown to 17 krewes
that will be in this year's parade.
Krewe members are feverishly
putting the last touches on their
costumes and floats all in se-
cret, of course. No one outside
krewe members sees the finished
products until parade day.
The 21st annual Lake Wales
Mardi Gras is expected to be the
biggest ever, according to Mardi
Gras Committee President
DIenise Stembridge.
"We are thrilled to have local.
artist Tom Freeman as parade
marshal this year," Ms. Stem-
bridge said. "And we are expect-
ing large crowds downtown all
day."
Freeman designed this year's
poster. The same design is used
on the brochures and T-shirts.
The Mardi Gras parade will be-
gin at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb.
5, but the festivities will begin
earlier in fact parties, music,
fun, food and good times fill a
two-week period before and after
the "big day."
A number of krewes, which
make up the core of the event,
host fund raisers throughout the
year. Included in these efforts
are "T-back" car washes, golf
tournaments, a bass tourna-
ment, garage sales, dances, panr
cake breakfasts, taste of New
Orleans lunches, chances on bas-
kets of cheer, King Cake parties
and the ever-popular Wild
Shiner Black Light Ball, which
was held Friday.
On Saturday, the music, food
and merriment will begin at 10
a.m. The stage will be set up
near the beer tent on Park Ave-
nue. Nine bands will entertain
the crowds all day and into the
night. Continuous music will be-
gin at 10 a.m. The beer tent area
has been expanded. All bands
will take a break during the pa-
rade, and resume playing around
5 p.m. until closing at 11 p.m.
Children will have a good
time, too, visiting the children's
ride area and midway located be-
hind the SunTrust Bank on Till-
man Avenue. Proceeds will go to
the Lake Wales Police Officers
Association. The funds are used
to replace stolen Christmas gifts,
support softball and other com-
munity needs.


Food vendors will be located
on Market Street and no one will
have an excuse to go hungry.
Everything from Cajun food to
barbecue, including pizza, sau-
sage with onions and peppers,
Philly steaks, shrimp, crab, Ga-
tor Bites, funnel cakes and soft

State Properly Rejected


An Unneeded School


Whatever the merits of chiropractic
treatment and we will leave that to the
medical professionals to debate the
decision of Florida's Board of Governors
on Friday to scrap plans for a chiroprac-
tic school at Florida State University was
he right one.
It would be difficult to create a worse
:.et of circumstances for creating a new
school in the university system.
Typically, the impetus for a new school
at a state university comes from the fac-
ulty, then goes to the school's board of
trustees for approval, and then to the
Legislature for funding.
It is not an apolitical process, but the
impetus begins in the academic commu-
nity, then works its way into the political
arena.
In the case of the now-abandoned FSU
school of chiropractic, Jim King, during
his tenure as president of the Florida
Senate, pushed through a budget with $9
million in start-up funds for the school.
More than 500 FSU faculty members
came out against the school, and some
threatened to resign rather than share
"their" campus with a chiropractic
school. They did not do themselves
proud. Universities typically welcome
diverse interests and views. Campuses
tend to be hotbeds of controversy; they
thrive on it.
FSU President T.K. Wetherell kept a
low profile, quietly expressing support
for the school even advertising for a
dean before its creation was authorized
- but did not press the point with the
Board of Governors.
The Board of Governors properly
based its decision on the convoluted
process that resulted in funding for a
new school that FSU never publicly said
it wanted, and the lack of need for it.
Both are important.


If a project has sufficient merit, the uni-
versity faculty and administration
should get behind it, and pursue the
school .through a system which is sup-
posed to see that universities are based
more on educational needs than political
maneuvering.
Perhaps even more important, there
appears to be little need for a school of
chiropractic at a Florida university. No
major university in the country has one.
Instead, doctors of chiropractic are
trained at 17 private colleges that are
accredited by the Council on
Chiropractic Education.
According to research by The Tampa
Tribune, to maintain the ratio of chiro-
practors to population as Florida grows,
the state needs 108 new practitioners a
year. Palmer College of Chiropractic
Florida in Port Orange expects to gradu-
ate 188 chiropractors a year by 2007. Gov.
Jeb Bush's staff said that the state could
provide 450 scholarships with the $9 mil-
lion in start-up funds that the Legislature
proposed to spend at FSU.
The issue is not the efficacy of chiro-
practic, but the need for tax funds to train
people in it at a state university.
Clearly, no such need exists.

suspect his friends call this wise
man Bubba.
Davis, who hails from Hazard,
Ky. (yes, there is such a place; my
family spent a night there when I
was a a child) said some of his
classmates at the University of
Pittsburgh had trouble under-
standing him. When asked his
major, they looked puzzled when
he replied "riding." It was only
when he spelled it out W-R-I-
T-I-N-G that they could under-


stand.
Well no wonder.
The word is "wrattin'."
Remember, the "w" is silent'
A few days ago, I had lunci
with Derek Dunn-Rankin, I
newspaper friend of mine.
"I'm a pretty good judge o .
accents," he told me. "One day 1
was interviewing a job applicant,
and I told him: 'I'd say that from
your accent, you're from Dade
County.' "
Yes, the applicant said.
"Let me guess that you're from
Miami Beach."
Confirmed.
"In fact, I'd venture to say that
you live south of 13th Street."
His applicant was amazed.
"And when I was a district
manager, you were my best
newspaper carrier," Derek told
him.

My daughter Jerny has a way
of weaving a tale. I guess she
comes by it honestly, as I tend to
be a little verbose at. times, and
my husband Fred is a storyteller
with a catalog of yars stretching
back into the early 1960's.
So, it comes as no surprise
when she corners me, like she did
on Wednesday of last week, to
share with me her latest news-
worthy discovery.
"Mom?"
"Yeah?"
"You are not going to believe
this."
Her standard opening. I got
comfortable, and gave her. my
undivided attention.
"I was walking home from the
bus stop. For the first time in I
don't know how long, I actually
didn't mind walking home from
the bus stop because the weather
was nice, you know?"
I nodded.
"I got to the yard and all the
dogs and the cat came running
out to meet me. The little pigs in
the catch pen jumped up when
they saw me, and ran across the
pen grunting, like they do when
they get startled."
She gazed at me, and I nodded
again, content to allow her to set
her scene.
"Then I saw the most bizarre
thing I think I have ever seen."
"Yeah?" I was on the edge of
my seat.
"Something made me look
over at that tree by the little chick
coop ... you know, the one we
put the baby chicks in until they


are ready to go into the hen yard.
I looked up into the tree and I
saw two feet hanging there."
"What kinda feet?"
"Chicken feet?"
I tried to picture what that
must look like, two chicken feet
just dangling out of the tree, tried
to anticipate what she was going
to say, and I could no more fath-
om why there might be a chicken
suspended from that tree, than I
could decipher ancient Greek.
"Mom, it looked like a ritual
sacrifice!"
I just stared at her, waiting
with bated breath for her to con-
tinue.
"I went over there to investi-
gate and I found this Leghorn
hen stuck to a branch, her head
back and her mouth open ... like
this."
She tilted her head back, her
eyes bulged and her mouth
gaped open; her arms draped
limply at her sides (wings, you
know) in what I presumed to be a
perfect imitation of what she had
seen. A perfect imitation because
she painted a vivid picture of a
chicken that had met with an
unfortunate, unconventional, and
untimely demise.
"How was it... hanging?"
She got quiet for a moment,
and I could see just a hint of a
grin playing at the corners of her
mouth while she tried to find a
tactful path to reveal the horrible
end this chicken had come to.
"Well, it was dead you know."
"I figured that."
"I guess it had decided to roost


in that tree, and when it jumped
up there, it missed. There was a
little sharp, short branch, that it
somehow managed to land on. It
went up through its bottom beak
and into the bottom of its top
beak, which was why its mouth
was gaping open."
We made instant and equally
appalled faces at each other.
These expressions lasted several
seconds as the full impact of the
gruesome death sank in. Did the
poor thing die right away? Or did
it hang there for several hours, or
even days? How did we manage
to walk past that area and not see
this feathered white flag sus-
pended there? Was it hanging
there the day before when I
walked past there to feed, watch-
ing me parade past with one
beady little eye trained on me as I
went past, hoping that I would
notice and do something? I shud-
dered, and Jenny reciprocated.
"That's awful!" I said finally.
"I know."
"What did you do?"
"I took a stick and knocked the
poor thing loose."
"A little late, I'm afraid."
"Yeah." She gave me a wry
grin.
"Well, they don't call them
peabrains for nothing. I've
always said that a chicken's
biggest enemy is itself. They can
find more unique and unexpect-
ed ways to kill themselves than
any other animal I have ever
seen."
"You can say that again."
"They can find more unique


and unexpec..."
"I really didn't mean for you to
say it again."
"Oh."
Then the tension was broken
as we both laughed.
"Well," I said, getting down to
the nitty gritty, and giving her
what she had come to me for, "it's
not your fault of course. I'm sure
you would have done something
if you had come by sooner, when
it would have done some good."
"Well, yeah." She nodded vig-
orously. "I would have."
"I know you would have. But,
some animals just cannot be pro-
tected from themselves. They're
weak and not too bright and no
matter what you do, they will
find a way to astonish you v ith
their stupidity. In this case
though, I think it was just one of
those bizarre things that happen.
What they call an 'unfortunate:
accident.' Not your fault at all, or:
mine, or even the poor chick-'
en's."
She nodded at me and I could
see that she accepted my explana
tion, and had acknowledged tha
she bore no culpability in th
Great Chicken Tragedy.
"Thanks, Mom."
"You betcha."
"Mom?"
"Yeah?"
She was poised to walk awa
a studious expression on her fa'
"It might not hurt for me to
out there and cut off that lit4
branch, though, just in case."
"No, baby." I smiled at her.
wouldn't hurt a thing."

Sexual Revolution May Have Begun

With The Silent Generation Of The '40s


By CATHY KEEN
University of Florida

The sexual revolution did not
start in the free-loving 1960s as
is commonly thought, a Univer-
sity of Florida researcher says.
It began with the "silent gen-
eration" of the i940s and '50s,
which as its moniker implies,
didn't talk much about sex.
U.S. Census Bureau statistics
on premarital pregnancy and vi-
tal statistics on single mother-
hood between 1940 and 1960
point to the unexpected conclu-
sion that there was much more
sexual activity during those dec-
ades than Americans were will-
ing to admit, said Alan Petigny,
a University of Florida history
professor whose research is pub-
lished in the Fall- issue of the
Journal of Social History.
"People didn't start having
sex because Elvis Presley was
shaking his hips or because
Hugh Hefner came out with
'Playboy,' Petigny said. "After
15 years of depression and war,
there was also a desire on the
part of Americans to live in the
moment and enjoy life, and they
were accordingly less likely to
defer to traditional restraints on
their behavior."
The sexual revolution was un-
folding at least seven years be-
fore famed sex researcher Alfred
Kinsey published his 1948 book
"Sexuality and the Human
Male," Petigny said.
Although Kinsey said Ameri-
can males were participating in
certain sexual behaviors such
as masturbation, extramarital
sex and homosexuality with
greater frequency than had pre-
viously been acknowledged, Kin-
sey explicitly said that premari-
tal sex among women, the yard-
stick experts use to define the
existence of a sexual revolution,
was not rising in the 1940s, and
had remained flat since the
1920s, he said.
According to Petigny's re-
search, the sexual revolution ac-
tually began during World War
II, which had a great liberalizing
effect on values, affecting every-
thing from child-rearing to relig-
ion. As a result of scientific
breakthroughs during World
War II the atom bomb, perfec-
tion of radar, mass production of
penicillin science emerged
with an unprecedented level of
prestige. That allowed scientists
and social scientists to challenge
the traditional moral framework
with greater effectiveness, he
said.
For example,.the proportion of
the population that considered
alcoholism a disease rather than
a moral failing increased from
six percent in 1944 to more than
60 percent in 1954, Petigny said.
Dr. Benjamin Spock, in his 1946
book "The Common Sense Book
of Baby and Child Care," which
was second only to the Bible in
sales, advised parents not to be-
come alarmed by their children
masturbating.
By 1950, even the politically
conservative Norman Vincent
Peale was warning his readers
about the dangers of sexual re-
pression, Petigny said.
He relied on vital statistics
and census data rather than sex-
ual surveys, such as those com-
pleted by Kinsey and his staff in
the '40s and '50s, because the
government's hard numbers are
likely more reliable.


"Because rates of single moth-
erhood focus on what people
have done as opposed to what
people claim to have done or
not to have done they are sig-
.nificantly more reliable than ei-
ther subject interviews or polling
data," he said.
"The evidence from our study
using census, data suggests that
the '40s and '50s experienced a
sizeable increase in the fre-
quency of premarital inter-
course," he said. "To argue other-
wise, one would need somehow
to reconcile the more than dou-
bling of illegitimacy among
whites, the more than tripling of
all out-of-wedlock births and the
evidence of a dramatic increase
in premarital pregnancies."
Between 1940 and 1960, the
frequency of single motherhood
among white women increased
from 3.6 to 9.2 newborns per
1,000 unmarried white women of
childbearing age, Petigny said.
Arong all women, single
motherhood rose from 7.1 to 21.6
newborns per 1,000 unwed
women, he said.
"Between the beginning of
World War II in 1941 and the in-
augural issue of Playboy in 1953,
the overall rate of single mother-
hood more than doubled," he
said. "The silent generation may
have been silent about what they
were doing, but they weren't all
that complacent."
The birth control pill had lit-
tle effect on the sexual behavior
of single people when it became
available in the 1960s, probably
because many doctors refused to
prescribe it for unmarried
women, Petigny said. By the
mid-'60s, the pill had become the
favorite form of contraception
among married women, but the
first survey done of single
women in 1971 showed only
about 10 percent of sexually ac-
tive teenagers used it, he said.
The crucial distinction be-
tween the '40s and '50s and the
1960s are in differences between
conventions and conduct what
people said versus what they
did, Petigny said.
During the '60s, Americans
simply were more willing to ac-


knowledge the extracurricular
sexual activities of the young
than they had been during the
previous decades, he said.
In the late '50s, for example,
television characters Ricky and
Lucy Ricardo of "I Love Lucy"
slept in separate beds. By the
mid-'60s, the Motion Picture As-
sociation officially ended its reli-
ance on censors, a move that
paved the way at decade's end
for production of films such as "
Romeo and Juliet," "I Am Curi-
ous (Yellow)," and "Midnight
Cowboy," which depicted nudity
and intercourse on screen, he
said.
Rather than a sexual revolu-
tion, an upheaval in social con-
ventions is what occurred in the
1960s. What was publicly re-
spectable changed enormously as
social conventions came into line
with personal conduct or as pub-
lic manners converged with pri-
vate morals, he said.
Lawrence Friedman, a visit-
ing professor in the history of
science department at Harvard
University, calls Petigny's find-
ings "very revolutionary." Pe-
tigny tells us that "during the
'40s and '50s bigsocial and cul-
tural changes occurred, and we
acknowledged them and they be-
came part of '60s headlines when
the changes had already oc-
curred," he said. "It's quite ex-
traordinary for a young historian
to think this big and this
broadly."

No Matter The State Of Your Love

Life Be Happy This Valentine's Day


Valentine's Day can be a de-
pressing day when you're in an
unhappy or shaky marriage and
are worried sick that your mar-
riage is on the rocks.
"There are things you can do
to help keep your perspective
and sanity," Dr. Nancy Wasson,
co-author of "Keep Your Mar-
riage: What To Do When Your
Spouse Says 'I Don't Love You
Anymore,'" said.
She offers the following tips to
help troubled spouses cope with
Valentine's Day:
Be your own valentine and
celebrate the wonderful person
that you are. Make an appoint-
ment to have a massage or pedi-
cure on Feb. 14 or make plans
with a friend to dine at a gour-
met restaurant. Buy yourself a
new CD or book. Leave work
early and do something fun.
Make a commitment to love
yourself and treat yourself with
care and respect. Resolve to take
good care of yourself by exercis-
ing, eating right, taking time to
relax and see friends and getting
enough rest. Throw any martyr


tendencies out and make your-
self your top priority.
Commit to being okay no
matter what happens in your
marriage. It's essential that you
promise yourself that you'll have
a quality life with or without
your spouse. By showing respect
for yourself and belief in your
ability to thrive whether married
or not, you'll find empowerment
and strength.
Accept uncertainty. and 'see.
it as an opportunity to flex your
faith, build, resiliency and learn
to live in the present. With prac-
tice, you can learn to curb your
tendency to worry about the fu-
ture and can expand more of
your energy into making the
most of the time you have now.
Practice having fun, even
when you're feeling miserable.
Don't wait until your life is per-
fect to plan fun activities. Do
something you've always wanted
to do, but have put off. Some
ideas are piano or dance lessons.
One of the biggest mistakes you
can make is to wait and see what
happens in your marriage before


you create a more satisfying life.
The time to start enjoying life is
now.
Expand your support cycle.
Stay in touch with your current
friends and be open to new
friendships. Look for ways to in-
crease your contact with others
such as taking a night class,
joining a local hiking group,
singing in a community chorus
or doing volunteer work.
,* Find your strong woman or
strong man warrior energy.
Learn to scuba dive, ride in a hot
air balloon, go para-sailing, plan
a backpacking trip, go horseback
riding, lift weights, explore river
rafting or sign up for a martial
arts class. Do whatever empow-
ers you and makes you feel
strong and energetic. Then con-
gratulate yourself on your
spunk.

Why Is It?

A person wakes up after sleeping

under an ADVERTISED blanket

on an ADVERTISED mattress

and pull off ADVERTISED.pajamas,

bathes in an ADVERTISED shower,

shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,

brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED toothpaste,
washes with ADVERTISED soap,

puts on ADVERTISED clothes,

drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee,

drives to work in an ADVERTISED car

and then...

refuses to ADVERTISE, believing that it doesn't pay.
Later, if business is poor,

the person ADVERTISES it for sale.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRON-
MENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection gives notice
of its intent to issue a modifi-
cation to an Environmental Re-
source Permit (File No.
0137444-006) to Rinker Mate-
rials of Florida, Inc., 100 Lem
Carnes Road, Davenport, Florida
33837. This modification is for:
(1) dredging/filling of herba-
ceous wetlands at two loca-
tions associated with the wid-
ening of two existing dirt roads
that cross wetlands, and (2)
changing proposal pastureland
to citrus groves as a post-rec-
lamation land use. The widened
access roads will be used to
transport mine equipment for
sand extraction to uplands al-
ready within the permitted pro-
ject area. The northern road
widening/crossing (Wetland
Crossing A) will impact 0.60
acre of herbaceous wetlands
and the southern road widen-
ing/crossing .(Wetlands Cross-
ing B) will impact 0.21 acre of
herbaceous wetlands. To offset
the 0.81. acre of total wetland
impacts, the applicant will cre-
ate an additional 1.22 acres of
on-site herbaceous wetlands
adjacent to an existing 2.39-
acre herbaceous wetland miti-
gation site. Hydrological and
biological monitoring of the
1.22-acre mitigation area is re-
quired. The drainage pattern
will not change as a result of
this permit modification. At
each crossing, 100-feet of 48-
inch diameter corrugated metal
pipes are currently in place to
pass water flow from one side
of the road to the other. These
pipes will not be modified. The
permitted is required to comply
with the Best Management
Practices (BMP's) plan for the
road crossing. No additional im-
pervious surfaces will be con-
structed.
This modification incorpo-
rates the provisions and super-
cedes Permit Nos. 0137444-
001 (also identified as Permit
No. 53-01374443-001),
0137444-002, 0137444-003,
0137444-004, and 01 37444-
005. The project, as modified,
will consist of a total dredging
or filling of 1.68 acres of her-
baceous wetlands, alteration of
a 1.39-acre herbaceous borrow
pit, 3.96 acres of work in up-
land cut ditches, authorizes the
relocation and paving of the ex-
isting entrance road, and the
changing of the proposed post-
reclamation land use. Mitigation
consists of the already created
2.39-acre herbaceous wetland,
a proposed 1.22-acre herba-
ceous wetland, and a proposed
3.35-acre herbaceous wetland
within the 30-acre littoral shelf
along the created lake. During
mining, the surface water man-
agement system shall be con-
structed and maintained to,
contain the 25-year, 24-hour
storm event. The total area
served by the system is
1,102.3 acres. Sand mining will
extend 56 feet below the nor-
mal water table. The post rec-
lamation land use will be 505.4
acres of forested wetlands,
317.6 acres of citrus, 235
acres of lakes with wetland
shorelines, 30 acres of littoral
shelf, 9.0 acres of road, 3.6
acres of created herbaceous
wetlands, and 1.7 acres of live
oak uplands. The project con-
tains an existing 100,188
square feet of impervious areas
associated with aroad. The du-


istrative hearing is timely filed
under sections 120.569 and
120.57 of the Florida Statutes
as provided below. If a suffi-
cient petition for an administra-
tive hearing is timely filed, this
intent to issue automatically
becomes only proposed agency
action on the application, sub-
ject to the result of the admin-
istrative review process. There-
fore, on the filing of a timely
and sufficient petition, this ac-
tion will not be final and effec-
tive until further order of the
Department. When proof of
publication is provided, if re-
quired by this intent, and if a
sufficient petition is not timely
filed, the permit will be issued
as a ministerial action. Because
an administrative hearing may
result in the reversal or sub-
stantial modification of this ac-
tion, the applicant is advised
not to commence construction
or other activities until the
deadlines noted below, for filing
a petition for an administrative
hearing or request for an ex-
tension of time, have expired
and until the permit has been
executed and delivered. Media-
tion is not available.
A person whose substantial
interests are affected by the
proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
F.S. The petition must contain
the information set forth below
and must be filed (received) in
the Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4)
of the Florida Administrative
Code, a person whose substan-
tial interests are effected by
the Department's action ma y
also request an extension of
time to file a petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing. The De-
partment may, for good cause
shown, grant the request for an
extension of time. Requests for
extension of time must be filed
with the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boule-
vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000, be-
fore the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension of
time shall till the running of the
time period for filing a petition
until the request is acted upon.
If a request is filed late, the De-
partment may still grant it
upon a motion by the request-
ing party showing that the fail-
ure to file a request for an ex-
tension of time before the
deadline was the result of ex-
cusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient pe-
tition for an administrative
hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interest will
be affected by the outcome of
the administrative process have
the right to petition to inter-
vene in the proceeding. Inter-
vention will be permitted only
at the discretion of the presid-
ing officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with rule
28-106.205 of the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code.
In accordance with rules 28-
106.11 (2) .and 62-
110.106(3)(a)(4), F.A.C., peti-
tions for an administrative
hearing by the applicant must
be filed within 21 days of re-
ceipt of this written notice. Pe-
titions filed by any persons
other than the applicant, and
other than those entitled to
written notice under subsection
120.60(3), F.S., must be filed
within 21 days of publication of
the notice or within 21 days of
receipt of the written notice,
whichever occurs first. Under
subsection 120.60(3), F.S.,
however, any person who has
asked the Department for no-
tice of agency action may file a
petition within 21 days of re-
ceipt of such notice, regardless
of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the ap-
plicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a
petition within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative de-
termination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes.
A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the De-
partment's action is base must
contain the following informa-
tion:
(a) The name and address of
each agency affected and each
agency's file or identification
number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and
telephone number of the peti-
tioner, the name, address, and
telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any,
which shall be the address for
service purposes during the
course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how the peti-
tioner's substantial interests
will be affected by the agency
determination;
(c) A statement of how and
when the petitioner received
notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. If there
are none, the petition must so
indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the
ultimate facts alleged, including
the specific facts that the peti-
tioner contends warrant rever-
sal or modification of the agen-
cy's proposed action;

JV Soccer Comes Back To
Tie Thunder In Season Finale


By BRITTA GIDDENS
BHS Sports Correspondent

In a tight match against the
Lake Region Thunder Thursday
night, Bartow boys' JV soccer
team ended the game in a 3-3
tie.
Ending the first half with a 2-
0 score in Lake Region's favor,
the boys hit the field in the sec-
ond half with determination.
Sophomore Lewis Murillo


knocked in two goals to tie the
game for the Jackets.
A defensive foul caused by the
Thunder led to a penalty kick by
Shawn Simack, who then scored
the third goal of the game.
"They had a defensive break-
down," said varsity Head Coach
Mike Brennan.
The JV boys ended their sea-
son with a record of 5-9 and look
forward to next season.


500-Mile 'Ride for a Caus,

Gears Up For March Ride


The fourth annual Ride for a
Cause will kick off March 21 on
the state capitol steps in Talla-
hassee. Bike riders will cross 500
miles of Florida in five days to
raise funds for HIV/AIDS educa-
tion and prevention.
The riders' path will take
them to Branford on March 21,
Ocala on March 22, Lakeland on
March 23, Fort Myers on March
24 and end in Naples on March
25.
Some of the riders include
Gulf Coast High School teacher
and ride founder Thom Croce,
Florida Southern College stu-
dent Katie Peters, 13-year-old
South West Middle School stu-
dent Garrett Robinson, and New
York City resident Joe Croce.
The public can join the bikers
in ride-alongs scheduled March
23 at approximately 2:30 p.m. on
U.S. 98 North at the Polk
County line and on.March 25 at

Sanibel Causeway. '
To find out more about the
bike ride, to sign u'p to ride, or
sponsor a rider, visit www.

All funds from the bike ride
are donated to Friends Together,
a Lakeland-based non-profit


HIV/AIDS education and pre'
tion organization, which s
sors free educational camps
retreats for Florida families a-
children affected by HIV/AI
The riders pay all of their ol
expenses so 100 percent of It
money raised goes to Friends'
gether programs.
Cathy Robinson Pickett,
founder of Friends Togethe
said the bike ride is the orga
zation's main fundraiser and E
is seeking both corporate and
dividual sponsors for the riders
She noted that donations
the organization dropped by
most 25 percent after the hur:
canes, resulting in the cancelli
tion of the March family cam"
so the funds raised from the bik
ride will be important in coi
tinuing the organization's ou
reach efforts.
Pickett, who recently receive
the Humanitarian of the Yea
award from the National Pediat.
ric Nursing Association for her
work, said that education and
prevention are important in
Florida because it ranks third ir
