Polk Commission Considers Plan 7 I

To Align Public Safety Under Sheriff '
9 .f -is W S ^a -ii r .


Bartows community
Redevelopment Agency wants to
buy the S-P Mobile Home Park
west of the county government
complex and eventually resell it
for residential and perhaps com-
mercial development.
CRA board members voted on
Monday to pay $1,500 for an
appraisal on the park, which com-
prises abbut 13 acres of land
fronting on West Main Street.
A consultant recommended
several years ago that the CRA
try to buy the park, which is
owned by Dave Partin.
CRA Executive Dir. James Q.
Duane said he had not
approached Partin about selling
the property, but that he would do
so first thing the next morning,
before newspaper stories on the
CRA's interest were published.
In ordering the appraisal, CRA
board members said they want to
keep the appraised price under
wraps until a deal is negotiated.
Mayme Clark, chairman of the
CRA, said she would like for the
agency to buy the property, "clean
it up," and look for a purchaser.


Under state law, residents must
be given a year's notice before a
mobile home park is closed, and
during that time, the CRA would
operate the park and collect the
rents.
Duane said the agency would
develop "a mitigation plan" to
help the residents find new places
to live.
Mrs. Clark said the CRA
should be able to sell the park at
a profit for development of apart-
ments or town houses, as recom-
mended by the consultant. The
primary tenants probably would
be county employees, who would
live within sight of the county
administration building and the
court house.
On an interim basis, part of
the property might be used for
parking for the county govern-
ment complex.
Commercial development -
perhaps professional offices -
might be built on part of the
acreage, CRA board member
Terry Hunter suggested.
The CRA board also:
Passed a resolution to take


part in a $5 million bond issue to
be sold by the city commission.
The CRA will get $3.5 million to
help pay for redesign'of Main
Street, and for work on North
Wilson Avenue and Blount Street
to accommodate Lowe's Home
Improvement Center, which has
purchased the old Bartow Ford
site. Repayment will be over 20
years, with annual payments
ranging from $252,000 to
$265,000.
Approved a contribution of
$200 for the L.B. Brown Heritage
Luncheon.
Agreed to appoint a "signage
and gateway committee" and a
"celebration of Main Street com-
pletion and Light Up Christmas
committee."
Heard Doug Leonard, execu-
tive director of the Central
Florida Regional Planning
Commission, outline plans for an
update of the CRA's five-year-old
master plan. The update will

Staff Writer

Polk County commissioners
discussed a plan Wednesday that
calls for the alignment of the
county's public safety depart-
ment with the sheriff's office.
The idea has, of yet, not moved
past a research stage.
The plan is one of nine goals
commissioners discussed during
a January retreat and ratified on
Wednesday.
The plan is based on a model
from Broward County, which has
aligned fire, ambulance and
police services.
Broward, however, is much
different than Polk, as the county
has 31 cities and only three per-
cent of the county is not within
city borders, County Manager
Mike Herr said.
"This makes more business
sense in (a county like) Broward,"
Commissioner Paul Senft said.
He suggested that the county
could, eventually, offer to con-
tract services with cities if they
were interested.
And while Herr said that was
a possibility, he wanted to ensure
that. commissioners understood
that the plan was still far in the
future. He. was not suggesting a
con-olidation of-city services with
county safety services, he said
and at this, time, he was moving
very cautiously.
The county has had a "long
history of electing very good sher-


iffs," and some unqualified sher-
iffs, Herr said.
"Sheriff (Grady) Judd is a
capable leader, but he may not
always be sheriff," Herr said. "I
don't want an arrangement
where half the house is under an
unqualified sheriff."
Herr said he will continue to
study the issue, and bring his
recommendation to the board.
"(To recommend the consolida-
tion) it will have to save money
and improve services substan-
tially," he said. "If I can't make
that claim, we need to leave
things alone."
In addition to that goal, com-
missioners also discussed fund-
ing for roads, parks and libraries
in the county, which has been dis-
cussed in recent months as com-
missioners looked at the munici-
pal service taxing unit.
Commissioner Bob English, a
proponent of the MSTU, request-
ed on Wednesday that the public
information office design a
brochure explaining the program
to the public.
English said he has accepted
many invitations to discuss the
tax and thought a brochure
answering some of the most basic
questions would be helpful.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson spoke against the
brochure, saying that, in the
past, such brochures have not
been accurate.
He sited a brochure produced
in 1999 about a campaign to
improve roads. The money col-


elected was later diverted to other
projects, such as a jail expansion.
"We need to be very accurate,"
he said. "We need to be very sure
of what we're selling."
Other commissioners sided
with English, and voted 4-1 to
allow a brochure to be designed.
The actual brochure will have to
come before the commission for
approval.
The other goals of the commis-
sioners are:
S Reducing emergency
response time back to 7.5 min-
utes for EMS units.
Proceeding with the 311 cus-
tomer service call center for Polk
County with an implementation
date of January 2006. The call
center will offer non-emergency
government information, such as
the numbers of animal control
and other offices, freeing up the
911 system for emergencies.
Creating an activity-based,
cost accounting, growth manage-
ment/fiscal analysis model dur-
ing the fiscal year.
Charging the Central
Florida Development Council
with creating 750 new jobs and
generating $60 million in new
capital investment in the county.
Integrate and implement
Polk Vision through county
departments and divisions.
Automate the county meet-
ing agenda to free up staff time.
Proceed with the expansion
of the South County Jail and
build a new inmate work camp.


CONSTRUCTION WORKERS used hot pink funnels and plas-
tic fencing to create their garish Mardi Gras costumes for last
year's parade in Lake Wales. Some 17 krewes that will be in this
year's parade on Saturday at 3 p.m. in Downtown Lake Wales.'
Parties, music, fun, food and good times fill a two-week period before

We did not know that early morn-
ing on November 13, 2004 that God
was going to call your name, and
things here on earth just haven't
been the same. It broke our hearts
to lose you, butyou did not go alone,
because part of us went with you,
that day God called you home.
You left us with joyous memories,
your love is still our guide, and
though we cannot see you, you will
always be at our side. Our family
chain is broken, and nothing can
ever be the same, but as God calls
us one by one, the chain will link
again.
Son, we cannot celebrate your 21st
birthday with you today (February
6, 2005), but there will come a time
when we will be reunited to cel-
ebrate forever. Until then we can
only imagine.....

Always and forever in our heart

This year the Florida State
Fair's got an opening day special
on armbands and more rides
than ever before.
Through a special promotion
with Wild Cherry Pepsi and
Hess Express, for $10 after 5
p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10,
guests can purchase an armband
on the midway, and ride the
rides to an unlimited number of
times before closing. Some of the
special attractions are excluded.
There are also five full Pepsi
Armband Days, when folks can
come out to the fair for an unlim-
ited number of times on the rides
(some restrictions apply) Pepsi
Armband Days are both Fridays,
both Sundays, and the last Mon-
day of the fair (Feb. 11, 13, 18,
20 and 21).
Even without an armband,
there will be plenty of ride-time
adventure at the 2005 State
Fair.
On one of the largest midways
in the Southeast, every genera-
tion can enjoy a sentimental ride
on the nostalgic carousel.
This year's midway rides,
games and attractions come to
Tampa Bay from several differ-
ent ride operators, and there are
several brand new ones that
have never been at the Fair be-
fore.
Some of what fairgoers can
look forward to are:
Wild Mouse One of the
biggest and newest attractions
on this year's midway is the
Wild Mouse. This steel roller
coaster takes daredevils on an
untamed ride as the cars spin
while the riders travel along the
coaster's path.
Super Himalaya This
European super spectacular is
."the" classic music ride. Brought
to the United States from Italy,
riders are flipped and turned
every which way on the ride,
complete with 13,000 light bulbs
and a state of the art music sys-
tem.
Spin Out It's what you do
when you ride this one. The ride
itself spins one way, while a
main arm spins in the opposite
direction and the riders flip up-
side down.
Power Surge When the
main arm lifts, six arms con-
nected to the seats begin to re-
volve, plus the seats rotate freely
on their own axis. Riders are
flipped and turned every which
way, up to 59 feet in the air.
World of Wonders Palace
of Illusions New to this


year's midway and open every
fair day in the World of Wonders
Place of Illusions patrons can ex-
perience 12 live acts of sideshow
fantasy. With state of the art
sound, illumination and special
effects, guests will witness such
marvels as a fire eater, a contor-
tionist and a glass dancer; plus
they can witness sword balanc-
ers and see a human head visi-
bly shrink to the size of an or-
ange.
More of the midway rides that
will be making memories this
year are: Super Slide, Ring of
Fire, Free Fall, Tango, Wild
Claw, Orbiter, Tornado, Bonsai,
Freak Out, Sizzler, Sling Shot,
Avalanche, Star Ship 3000,
Inverter, Pharaoh's Fury, Dream
Machine, Space Loop, Zyklon,
and the Spinning Spectacular.
At the midway's Kiddie King-
dom area, there are age appro-
priate rides for the younger visi-
tors including:
Fire Brigade This new
ride is a fully interactive attrac-
tion. Each of the Brigade's six
fire trucks feature seating in the
cab for drivers, as well as a res-,
cue bucket where two brave fu-
ture firefighters take aim with
their water cannons to extin-
guish the fire raging through the
ride's centerpiece building.
Jurassic Adventure A
prehistoric adventure, enter
through the ancient dinosaur
bone yard, then use ropes to
climb up the rocky terrain of the
raging volcano to reach the
mountain's peak. If you can't
take the heat, take the fastest
route to the bottom down the 10-
foot inflatable slide. Then, ride
the two rockin' dinos and slam
the tall dinosaur pop up heads.
This year, Kiddie Kingdom
also includes Safari Train, Fly-
ing Tigers, Jalopy Junction, Kid-
die Bumper Boats, Crazy Bus,
Dizzy Dragon, Up Up and Away,
Bear Affair, Berry Go Round,
Dragon Wagon, Auto Scooters,
Bumble Bee Bop, and Rockin'
Tug.
There are two Thrill Zone ar-
eas where the brave will take on
daring rides including:
Sling Shot It catapults
riders more than 365 feet high at
100 miles per hour. The scale of
the ride is so dramatic that rid-
ers can experience up to six G's
(five times the force of gravity)
on takeoff, andweightlessness
after.
Ejection Seat This ma-
chine allows riders to feel the


force of a carrier jet taking off.
The two person chair is launched
from a pad between two 125-foot
towers attached by elastic ele-
ments to the top of the tower.
The ride offers 3.5 G-force take-
off to 150 feet in two seconds,
while the chair rotates in flight.
Not for the meek of heart and a
thrill to merely witness.
EuroBungy Taking fun to
new whole new heights, two
whole stories, in the all new
EuroBungy. Using bungee cords
and a trampoline, guests can
spin, flip and leap their way to
fun.
Located on the midway and at
the northeast corner of the fair,
the Thrill Zones will also include
a mechanical bull, rock climbing
wall and the Turbo Force.
There is a separate charge for
Thrill Zone rides.
Daily admission to your 2005

From The Fort Meade

Historical Museum


By LETA WRIGHT

We pay tribute this week to
Ms. Nellie May Meeks White, a
daughter of one of Fort Meade's
pioneer families.
She was a member of the 90
Year Club of the Historical Soci-
ety.
On March 14, she would have
reached her 93rd birthday, had
she not passed away.
She taught mathematics at
Fort Meade High School for
many years.
On Dec. 2, a ribbon cutting
was held for the newly built
bandstand and we honored three
members of the Fort Meade Kid-
die Band. The band was famous
for playing in Fort Meade's old
bandstand that stood in Triangle
Park. Ms. White was one of the
members honored.
She enjoyed the activity, im-
mensely and said she was glad
to visit with all the guests pre-
sent at the ceremony.
I will miss her so much, as on
many occasions I would call her
for a historical answer to some
questions on Fort Meade's past
history and families. With her
alert memory, she could always
give me quick answers.
She lived in the same beauti-
ful historic home all her life. She
contributed her talents and her
life toward the making of a bet-
ter Fort Meade. We will miss
her.


Since Hurricane Jeanne, the
progress of restoring the damage
to the Fort Meade Historical Mu-
seum has been a slow process,
but work is going on. We have
been having our meetings in the
Train Museum and we have
found out that it is a treasured
gift from the mining companies
that gave the train to the His-
torical Society.
We invite you to become a
member of the Fort Meade His-
torical Society.
The membership is growing
every year and it's so good to
know that we have so many peo-
ple in our small town who are in-
terested in preserving our his-
tory.
We appreciate the cooperation
that our city and individuals
give to the museum.
The fiscal year for member-
ship is Jan. 1 through Dec. 31
each year. Dues have been com-
ing in for the year 2005 and we
thank you.
For more information, call me
at 285-9182 or Peggy Langston
at 285-8417.
We have formed our Histori-
cal Museum team for the Relay
for Life event. Mrs. Langston is
our team captain.
If you have not committed to a
team and want to contribute to
the cancer drive, come join our
team. The event will be held in
April.

New Badge of Courage:


An Inky Finger


It was a simple enough photograph, but
it immediately became the international
symbol of Sunday's election in Iraq.
It was an Iraqi woman, grinning, proud-
ly displaying her right index finger cov-
ered with indelible purple ink.
It was one of those rare news pho-
io- p'hs that really didn't need a caption,
not if you were aware of the significance of
an inky finger in Iraq on Jan. 30.
Officials conducting the first free elec-
tion in Iraq in half a century used the inky
finger as a way to identify people who had
voted, so that they couldn't vote again.
The significance of the photo was not
simply that she had voted, but that she
proudly displayed the finger as a badge of
courage; like millions of other Iraqis, she
refused to be terrorized into staying away
from the polls.
And the fact that this proud voter was a
woman underscored the vastly improved
status of women in Iraq since Saddam
Hussein was toppled from power.
The high voter turnout should answer
skeptics who wondered if the people of
Iraq even wanted a democratic govern-
ment.


In the United States, where the right to
vote is so fundamental as to be taken for
granted, a spell of bad weather can keep
people from going to the polls.
In Iraq, death threats and the murder
of several candidates and the shelling of
polling places could not keep millions
of Iraqi citizens from voting.
The inky finger became proof that they
had done so, an in-your-face declaration of
their refusal to be frightened into avoiding
the election.
The grin and the inky finger instantly
became the emblem of a free election.

Cable Service Still Substandard


BARTOW Several weeks ago
I listened to a representative of
Comcast Cable answer questions
from the Bartow city commission
as to the service provided to the
citizens of Bartow by the cable
company.
Most of the issues raised at the,
meeting were-probably storm
related; however, not, all were. I
believe at the time, Comcast Cable
customers lost service to several of
our local channels, reportably due
to a tower malfunction/damage.
After several days of not receiving
Channel 10 and poor reception on
other local channels, I stopped by
the Bartow office and inquired as
to the problem.
The problem was explained to
me by a service technician. He
told me that a tower, previously
damaged by a storm and then an
airplane, had suffered some addi-
tional damage by something com-
ing loose and falling. He further
explained that there was a safety


issue involved in making any
repairs and work could not
resume until this issue was cor-
rected.
Several weeks went by before
Channel 10 was restored. At no
time did Comcast attempt to put
out any information as to what the
problems were.
Customers were left in the
dark.
Even now, Comcast Cable ser-
vice is lacking. I have outages of
some sort about three to four
times a week. These last from sec-
onds to minutes, (snow, no pic-
ture) or the screen going black. I
have screen (picture) freeze-ups
lasting from 10 seconds to min-
utes. Reception on our local chan-
nels is poor. Monday morning,
Channel 13 was very snowy.
Channel 10 might be that way
tonight.
I also believe that if you are
going to have an office in Bartow,
you will have a listed phone num-


ber. I fully understand directing
service calls to a central location.
However, not all calls are for ser-
vice related problems. I stopped
by the Bartow office quite some
time ago and asked for the local
phone number. They refused to
give it to me. This is very poor
customer relations.
A lot of my friends and neigh-
bors have gone to home satellite
dishes since the storms came
through, two more this past week.
Most quote price ard reception
problems for changing. While I
am not convinced that changing
over to a dish is the best way to go,
I am looking into it. I would
appreciate any input your readers
might have on the pros and cons
of dish versus cable.
I hope when the Comcast rep-
resentative comes back before the
commission, as he stated he
would, our commissioners will
pass this information on to him.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Sitting Here in My Green Wellies


I pulled my green Wellies out
of the back of the closet, put on
my warmest sweatshirt and a
pair of fleece jogging pants, and
prepared to face the day.
In case you're not familiar
with green Wellies, they're what
the British call those green rubber
galoshes that buckle at the knee.
I have decided that I had better
get my column for next week
written because the power might
go off. We are actually having
rain, sleet, ice, a possibility of
snow and a temperature at pre-
sent of 28 degrees, all at the same
time. If the power goes off, I will
not be sending out columns or
anything else. It is very exciting.
Yesterday, the weathermen on
the Atlanta stations were trying
to out-do each other with their
dire warnings of what would
happen today. They were right.
I woke up at four o'clock this
morning, turned on the outside
lights, and saw icicles hanging
from the roof. This is most
unusual weather. I have lived in
Atlanta since 1950 and thought I


had seen.everything. Apparently
not.
When we built this house, I
had a gas stove installed because
when the power goes off, you can
still cook and stay warm. The first
year we were here, there was an
ice storm that downed the tele-
phone polls, froze the streets in
our subdivision, and closed
.everything down. The good old
gas stove kept right on going and
we could heat the kitchen/family
room, shut the door into the hall,
stay warm and make coffee.
There were only two other
families in the neighborhood at
the time; the rest of the subdivi-
sion was still under construction.
One family happened to be out of
town at the time. I invited the
other one to come down and use
my stove. They came down and
stayed five days.
Their two boys were play-
mates of Blake, who was'4 years
old. They ate everything in the
house and I thought we would be
serving dog food sandwiches
before it was over.


After the thaw, they finally got
their car out of the slush and
went to the grocery store. I
thought, "Thank goodness! I
hope they will bring bread and
milk and something nourishing,"
They didn't They brought a
huge sack of "silver bells," those
little silver-wrapped chocolate
candies. Every time I see one, it
reminds me of the big freeze in
Sharon Park.
Yesterday when I heard the
weather report, I went to the gro-
cery store and bought two
pounds of ice cream freezer salt,
peanuts, dog food, bird seed, bird
bread and peanut butter. But no
silver bells.
I checked my candles and
flashlight batteries. I felt that I
had absolutely everything. It now
occurs to me that if the power
goes off, I can't send you any e-
mail, so I am writing this on
Saturday morning.
Everyone should have a pair
of Green Wellies, You just never
know.


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

Researchers/Snoopers Score a Find


In the two months since Dad
died, I have visited his home (to
me, it is still "Dad's home," and I
probably will think of it that way
for years) to make sure every-
thing is okay, and to do a little
exploring.
Exploring. Mary calls it explor-
ing.
Some would call it snooping,
though since Dad's death, it
seems a little less like snooping.
My son-in-law, Jim Holton,
who has a doctorate in history,
considers it "research."
Mother was an archivist.
I am a packrat.
Archivists and packrats sel-
dom throw anything away.

JEAN HULL.


The difference is that an
archivist labels and catalogues
everything, puts it-in boxes and
folders, all meticulously labeled,
and places it neatly on shelves.
Mother did all that.
If you don't know how a pack-
rat keeps stuff, stop by my office.
On one of our recent visits,
Mary and I were snooping...
doing research ... in Dad's exten-
sive collection of books, both fic-
tion and non-fiction, and found a
green, paperback book entitled
"The Charter and Revised Code
of Ordinances, City of Bartow,
Florida."
The publication date is 1901.
For me, a government junkie
who has covered Bartow's city
commission for more than 40
years, it was quite a find.
The book measures five-and-a-
half by eight-and-a-half inches,
and contains 92 pages plus a one-
page index.
(By contrast today's code of
ordinances is printed on eight-
.-and-a-half by eleven-inch paper
and weighs 9 pounds, 5.5 ounces.
I did not count the pages.)
The first page contains an ordi-
nance (most of the ordinances are
only one page) passed on Oct. 1,
1901, directing the mayor to'
"appoint a Commissioner


learned in the laws to revise, sim-
plify, arrange and consolidate the
Ordinances..." It was signed by
Warren Tyler, president of the city
council; W.J. Johnson, mayor; and
D.W. Stanley, city clerk. Today,
there are streets in Bartow bear-
ing all three names; I do not know
if that is coincidence.
On the second page is an
undated letter of transmittal, a
single sentence of 141 words, in
which Commissioner T.L. Wilson
reports that he has completed the
task "and now herewith lays
before your honorable body a
type-written copy of such revi-
sion and consolidation..." There
is also a city street named Wilson.
The next page is the 1893 char-
ter of Bartow, as amended in
1897, issued by the Florida
Legislature, apparently a revision
of the city's original 1882 charter.
It is five pages long.
City officials were a mayor,
city tax collector, city tax assessor,
city clerk and treasurer, and a
seven-member council.
In those days, the mayor was
the big kahuna of city govern-
ment. He had "the duty to sus-
pend any officer, except
Councilmen, at any time, for
gross neglect or dereliction of
duty."


He also was Judge of the Police
Court, before whom all miscre-
ants were to be taken immediate-
ly upon their arrest by the town
marshal or by "a private person
... under such circumstances as
would justify such arrest under
State offence."
For his duty, he received a
salary of "$100 per annum,
payable quarterly."
Among the improvements for
which the council could impose
taxes were "To Purchase or Erect
a City Market Building," and "To
Purchase or Erect City School
Buildings:"
At its monthly meeting on the
first Tuesday in June, the council
elected from among its members
a president, who would serve as
mayor in the event of his
"absence, disability, disqualifica-
tion, suspension or impeach-
ment."
The council, by a two-thirds
vote, could "expel members for
disorderly conduct during
Council meeting, Gross derelic-
tion of duty, or malfeasance in
office" and could boot out the
mayor "on charge of official mis-
conduct or willful neglect of
duty."

"A Collection of Flori-

Florida landscapes in three dif-
ferent mediums: oil, acrylics and
pencil.
The exhibit can be during visi-

Education and Visitor Center.
The artist will demonstrate
pencil drawing and be available
for questions on Saturday, Feb.

"The variety of subjects and
media reveal contrast, deep per-
spective and hidden messages -
all signatures of Anne Rosenvald
Moore" Pirjo Restina, curator of
education at the sanctuary, said.
Rosenvald Moore has cap-
tured many historical buildings
in her pencil drawings.
She likes to work in several
media: pencil, pastel, charcoal,
acrylic, oil, ink and mixed media,
occasionally replacing the tradi-
tional brush for a palette knife to
achieve rich texture and dimen-
sion.
Growing up in the East Euro-
pean city of Tallinn, capital of
Estonia, she fell in love with his-
toric buildings, parks and end-
less beaches.
She began to draw and paint
everything around her from age
6. During elementary and secon-
dary education years, Rosenvald
Moore showed her interest in the
arts by taking extra lessons in
painting with oil and watercol-
ors.
After graduation she worked
with a local firm reconstructing
historical buildings in Tallinn.
At the same time she also did
some interior designing.
Since 1996 she has lived and
worked as a freelance artist in
Lake Wales.

resented, sending five students,
and all five were within the top
four of their respective catego-
ries. The students collected two
second place ribbons, two third

award as well.
This year, the students se-

Polk Health Department Gearing H lt
Up For 'Step Up Florida!' Event *
-w, w ~ ~ -


Physical activity and healthy
lifestyles will be the hot topics
surrounding the second annual
"Step Up, Florida on our way
to healthy living!," a statewide
relay event, put on locally by the
Polk County Health Depart-
ment.
"Our community has so much
to offer our citizens and visitors
to help them achieve a healthy
and happy lifestyle," Daniel O.
Haight, Polk County Health De-
'partment director, said. "We look
forward to carrying the fitness
flag during Step Up, Florida! as
a symbol of our continued com-
mitment to promoting health
and wellbeing in our commu-
nity."
Designed as a month-long re-
lay event, Step Up, Florida! will
move along the state on four
routes where participants will
pass a "fitness flag" from county
to county until the routes merge
for the final event in Orlando on
Feb. 26.


Jacket Wrestlers Impressive


This year, Polk County will
receive the Route 1 fitness flag
on Friday, Feb. 25, at the Van
Fleet Trails in Polk City. The
day's activities will include bik-
ing, running, walking, horseback
riding, and kayaking.
County health departments
throughout Florida, as well as a
number of state agencies, non-
profits, community organizations
and residents, will be involved in
Step Up, Florida! activities. Par-
ticipants will exercise through-
out the state in an effort to en-
courage physical fitness and
healthy, balanced nutrition-life-
long healthy habits that can help
reduce the obesity epidemic in
Florida.
For more information, or to
join the event, visit the DOH
website at www.doh.state.fl.us
and choose "Step Up, Florida!,"
or contact the Polk County
Health Department at 519-7900,
ext. 1053 or 1065.


A deadly gas could be lurking
in your home, and this is the
month to check and make sure
radon is not threatening your
health.
Florida Department of Health
and the U.S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency are recognizing
Radon Awareness Month.
The observance aims to edu-
cate Floridians about the dan-
gers of exposure to elevated in-
door radon.
S"Exposure to high levels of ra-
don has been shown to cause
several health complications, in-
cluding lung cancer," DOH Sec-
retary Dr. John O. Agwunobi,
said.
Radon is a naturally occur-
ring, invisible, odorless, radioac-
tive gas emitted from soils.
While outdoor levels produce lit-
tle risk, higher concentrations
found indoors can create a poten-
tial health hazard.
According to the National
Academy of Sciences, radon is
the second leading cause of lung
cancer, causing approximately


21,000 deaths nationwide each
year. In Florida, 750 residents
died from long-term radon expo-
sure last year.
To prevent dangerous radon
exposure, the DOH and EPA
suggest:
All homeowners test for ra-
don. Test kits are available at
several retail outlets and
through DOH-certified radon
businesses.
DOH-certified radon con-
tractors can also be hired to test
homes.
Address any radon-related
problems immediately this
can be done for a relatively low
cost.
New homes should include
radon-resistant features which
can be installed by the builder-
these features are especially im-
portant in areas reporting ele-
vated radon levels.
For more information on ra-
don, its health effects and test-
ing procedures call the DOH Ra-
don Hotline at 1-800-543-8279,
or visit www.doh.state.fl.us.

GOING VERTICAL
Stumps, standing timber and
similar vertical cover attract
bass and even though they
don't provide as much habitat
as horizontal cover like logs,
treetops, boat clocks etc., they
are always worth fishing
especially at depths of 8-12'.
Large areas of standing dead
trees can be difficult to fish,
but you can isolate promising
spots and concentrate on them.
Look for irregular edges, work
the outermost trees standing
in at least 8' of water or
nearest a drop-off. Be sure
and fish the edges of any open
pockets or creek channels that
wind through tlie limber as
well as any old road beds or
fence rows.
If you find a fallen tree
among the standing, fish it
hard because this is and ideal
holding place for bass.

EAGERLY AWAITING the season, girls line up
for Miss Bartow Softball tryouts. At the tryouts
were (from left) Brittany McNeil, Destiny
Hammonds, Erin Johnson, Kyndal Kelly and
Brittany Webb, all of Bartow. Fans and players are


asked to be patient with the current Miss Bartow
softball parking situation as city crews (right) are
currently working on repairing damages suffered
during the hurricanes. (Photos provided)


Teams Abundant for Miss Bartow Softball,

But Parking and Amenities Are Not


Miss Bartow Softball Inc. is
having a record year for sign-
ups. Last year only 111 girls
signed up to play softball and
this year a record 172 girls
signed up to participate.
"I've never seen so many girls
sign up. Unfortunately, with all
the extra families signed up to
play ball, the park is sadly in
need of repairs," said Eddie Mar-
tin, Miss Bartow Softball presi-
dent.
The Miss Bartow Softball
Park, located at County Road


555 off of SR 60, has seen better
days and is still recovering from
the brunt of 2004's record num-
ber of hurricanes. Tree debris
from around the city is still
stacked high in the main park-
Sing lot.
Parking during tryouts last
week stretched all the way out to
the CR 555 entrance to the park.
The City of Bartow is working
to repair the concession stand,
bathrooms, roofs, electrical sys-
tem and fences before the first
games begin on Feb. 12.


Despite the park's appearance
and the mosquitoes, excitement
was in the air during tryouts.
Girls were happy to start a new
season of rekindling last year's
friendships, meeting new team-
mates and breaking in the new
coaches.
The games are free to the
public and provide lots of enter-
tainment, but spectators are en-
couraged to get there early for a
good parking space.

SIGNING TO DIVISION I SCHOOLS, Danny
Franks (front left), joined by his parents Mary and

his mom Pam Willis, sister Kayla Johnson, father
Eugene Johnson, Sr., and Bartow football Head


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Since bouncing back to 3-3 in
Sunshine State Conference play,
the streaky Florida Southern
College mens' basketball team
dropped two in a row, including
a shocking loss to St. Leo, the
first since 1985.
After what Head Coach Tony
Longa called a "frustrating" first
half, he said it was time to start
a new season. Florida Southern
has already played everyone in
the SSC once, and now that the
Mocs are entering into the final
eight conference ,games of the
season, there will be plenty of
opportunities for revenge.
On Monday night though, it
wasn't vengeance the Mocs (14-
6, 5-5) were after, but just a
much needed victory. Luckily, it
was the SSC bottom dwellers,
the Nova Southeastern Knights
15-16. 1-9), who came to Jenkins
Field House.
The Mocs dominated the
Knights defensively, forcing
them to shoot just under 40 per-
cent from the field. Nova was
held to 30 points in the first half
and to 26 in the second for an
easy 70-56 victoryy in which Flor-
ida Southern never trailed.
"Our key goal is to defend at a.
high level,", Longa said.
"Through these stretch of games
over the last month, we strug-
gled defensively more than we.
ever had. Tonight was a good

Two Jackets Sign On With Division I Schools


By JERRICA SANCHEZ
BHS Sports Correspondent

Bartow has once again shown
that it is truly the "Home of
Champions." Two of Bartow's
football stars signed Wednesday,
Feb. 2, to play at Division I col-
leges.
Danny Franks signed to Troy
State University and Geno John-
son signed to Indiana Univer-
sity.
Franks received a full-ride to
the Division I Troy State Univer-
sity in Alabama. Franks played
as a three-year starter on the
Jacket varsity team, starting his
sophomore year. He was the left
tackle on the offensive line and


sometimes played defense.
At Troy State, he will be play-
ing offensive guard or defensive
tackle for the Trojans. While
there, Franks will majo in' me-
chanical engineering.
"I liked the coaches, players
and the fact that I will hopefully
move on to the next level,"
Franks about why he chose to
play with the Trojans.
Florida International, Florida
Atlantic, Eastern Kentucky, and
New Mexico State were just a
few of the colleges that were
looking at Franks.
Eugene "Geno" Johnson re-
ceived.a full ride to another Divi-
sion I college, Indiana Univer-
sity. Johnson also was a three-


year starter for Bartow and re-
ceived the MVP award for his
performance this past football
season, leading the Yellow Jack-'
ets in sacks.
He played as a line backer
and a wide receiver for the Jack-
ets and plans to play outside line
.backer for the Hoosiers. He
plans to major in business ad-
ministration.
"I chose to go to Indiana be-
cause I get to play in the Big 10
Conference and I get an opportu-
nity to start as a freshman,"
Johnson said.
Johnson received other offers
from Marshall University, Akron
University, Illinois University,
and University of South Florida.


start holding them to 50."
Two Mocs, senior Kenny
Ebanyat and freshman Braxton
Williams, scored in the 20s and
freshman guard Allen Gilberry
dished the ball out nine times.
Ebanyat bookended the game
with scoring spurts, leading the
Mocs to an early 4-0 lead and
closing the game out with nine of
the Mocs' final 14 points. In all,
Ebanyat racked up 23 points and
six boards.
SWilliams, who was plagued by
injury earlier in the season, has
returned to pre-season form, hit-
'ting four of six from behind the
arc en'route to a 22-point night.
Longa called the performance
by Ebanyat, "a good start," but
to this point, has been disap-
pointed that the 6'6" native of
Entebbe, Uganda, hasn't found
his stride more frequently.
"He needs to (play like he did
tonight) every game. He hasn't
found the consistency to do that
every game,.but he is very capa-
ble of doing it every game,"
Longa said.
But it's not just Ebanyat who
caught the coach's criticism.
Longa said he wants more from
all of his seniors Ebanyat,
Reggie Richardson. Ellery
Boykin and Terrence Thomas.
"Our seniors not playing at a
high level has been the most dis-
appointing thing to me," Longa
said. "(The seniors) are in their
last stretch of games so 'it's now
or never.'"
Florida Southern suffered a
rash of injuries prior to confer-
ence play, including a season

NEWSPAPERS ARE










It all starts with News aper'


ending one to guard Hurley Dun-
bar, which Longa partially at-
tributes to the Mocs' mid-season
stumbles, but he said it is far
from an excuse.
"In the past, we've always ad-
justed," he said. "This year, we
haven't been able to make ad-
justments."
On Wednesday evening, the
Mocs traveled to Rollins for an
away rematch against the Tars
(12-8, 4-5).
Florida Southern needed over-
time, but thanks in part to ca-
reer highs in points from Boykin
(33) and rebounds from Ebanyat
(20), FSC has returned to .500 in
SSC play with a 63-53 overtime
road victory.
The win puts the Mocs firmly
into the middle of a tight race for
third place and ever-important
seeding in the SSC tournament.
Eckerd and Lynn are cur-
rently sitting atop the conference
and Florida Tech and Nova
Southeastern look to finish in
the bottom. That leaves five
teams to battle for third, with
only two games separating them
all.
Florida Southern will try to
continue to gain ground as they
travel to Florida Tech on Satur-
day, Feb. 5, to close out the two-
game road trip.

Hard to Bet Against New England's

Budding Dynasty in Super Bowl XXXIX More Sports

By RUSTIN DWYER News On
Staff Writer held in check, land to bookend its season with
It's defense that wins champi- the same result. Pa e


It's finally here. Super Bowl
time. Super Bowl XXXIX.
After months ard months of
waiting, the two best teams have
risen to the top and What a
shock! the New England Pa-
triots are back in the big dance.
Philadelphia, on the other
hand, has finally shaken off the
inability to win an National
Football Conference champion-
ship game and will be looking to
prevent New England from win-
ning its third Super Bowl in four
years.
While there were some huge-
surprises this season (the Chiefs
stinking, Ben Rothleswhatever
and of course, Ricky Williams),
seeing these two teams playing
in February comes as no sur-
prise. The Patriots were a pre-
season favorite for obvious rea-
sons and within the first four
weeks of games, Philadelphia be-
gan to separate itself from this
year's weak NFC.
Now that the teams have been
decided, it's time for the media
circus that is the Super Bowl to
begin. All week long, the world
of sports journalism has pretty
much devolved into one story
and one story alone: "Will Terrel
Owens play?"
As exciting as T.O. is, there is
more going on that just, "How's
the ankle, T.O.?"
The big question will be
whether or not Philadelphia can
harass "Mr. Cool" himself, Tom
Brady. In his short career, Brady
has become notorious for always
making the right decision, no
matter what the defense throws
at him. His eight-game playoff
winning streak speaks for itself.
On the road to the Super
Bowl, the Eagles' defense got the
job done by harassing some of
the league's best quarterbacks.
Before the playoffs, Brett Farve
had one of his worst games ever
against the Eagles' D. Once the
playoff rolled around, Daunte
Culpepper struggled and the
Michael Vick Experience was


onships, and these two teams
have good ones.
Jim Johnson, the Eagle's de-
fensive coordinator, has finally
got all the pieces in place for a
championship, but the Patriots
will be far and away his toughest
task this season.
Meanwhile, the Patriots' coor-
dinators are trying to cram in
.one final Super Bowl victory be-
fore leaving Boston for greener
pastures.
Offensive coordinator Charlie
Wiess has angered Notre Dame
fans with his constant winning,
forcing him to split his duties be-
tween recruiting and game plan-
ning.
Romeo Crennel had better get
as much enjoyment as he can out
of this game because his days as
the head coach of the Cleveland
Browns won't be quite as cushy.
New England is a seven-point
favorite and, taking into consid-
eration the Pats' past Super
Bowl performances, they're a
hard team to bet against. Forget
stocks, futures and investing, all
the budding entrepreneur needs
is the Patriots.
After going 16-2 straight up
and 12-2-2 against the spread
this season, and narrowly avoid-
ing perfection last season, if
someone had bet the Patriots in
every game for the last two years
well, they wouldn't be com-
plaining, I'll say that much.
It's also possible that the Ea-
gles have already played in their
Super Bowl. After being so
hyped up after finally getting
over the hump and winning that
elusive NFC championship,
Philadelphia faces the possibility
of an emotional letdown against
the business-like and seemingly
emotionless Patriots.
On Aug. 14, the Patriots
played their first game since
hoisting the Lombardi trophy, a
preseason home game against
the Eagles. The Pats left the
field after that game with a 24-6
advantage. Look for New Eng-


you th Pat


straight up. If you're courageous,
take the seven points. If you're
crazy (or know something crazy),
take the Eagles.

Go Red for Women Mobilizes



Them To Fight Heart Disease


Thousands of Americans will help
women fight heart disease when
they participate in the second year
of the American Heart Association's
Go Red For Women initiative, as it
gears up again in February.
Go Red For Women began in
February 2004 to raise awareness
that heart disease is women's No. 1
killer. The grassroots campaign has
since grown into a vibrant national
movement as more women, men,
celebrities, healthcare providers and
politiciAns embrace and elevate the
cause of women and heart disease,
according to Erica Rogers, commu-
nications director for the American
Heart Association in St. Petersburg.
The campaign provides women
tips and information on healthy eat-
ing, exercise, and risk factor reduc-
tion, such as smoking cessation,
weight maintenance, blood pressure
control and blood cholesterol man-
agement.
S"Last year, we discovered an
alarming fact that women still
don't know heart disease is their No.
1 killer," said Dr. Alice Jacobs, pres-
ident of the American Heart
Association. "In fact, more women
still believe that cancer is the great-
est health problem facing them
today. Go Red For Women is begin-
ning to change that."

10 Ways to Go Red and Take
Charge of Your Health
1. Make a date (and keep it). Each year
on your birthday, schedule a check-up.
Have your blood pressure, cholesterol and
glucose levels checked, and ask your doc-
tor to .help you reach or maintain a
healthy, weight. Be sure to follow your
healthcare professional's recommenda-
tions, including taking prescribed medica-
tions.
2. Tune in as you tone up. Add more
physical activity'.to your life by stepping,
marching or jogging in place for at least
15 minutes a day while watching your
favorite TV shows. Increase your activity
by 'five mifiutes each week until you're
getting a minimum of 30 minutes most
days of the week. Exercise and diet may
not get you to your goal. If not, ask your
doctor about adding medication.
3. Grab some H20 When you go. Take a
' water bottle with you wherever you go.
It'llkeep you hydrated and the bottle's
weight will strengthen your arms.
:4. Keep out of sight, out of mouth.
Keep packages of unhealthy food hidden'

Heart disease is the number one killer of
American women.
Every year, an estimated 485,000 women die
of cardiovascular disease (heart disease and
stroke), more than twice the number who die
from all forms of cancer combined.
An estimated 240,000 women die annually of
heart disease five times,the number who die
from breast cancer.
More women than men die of heart attacks
within the first year of their first heart attack
(44 percent versus 27 percent).
SMore women than men suffer a heart attack
within four years after their first heart attack
(20 percent versus 16 percent).
Heart attacks kill 21,000 women under the
age of 65, and over 29 percent of them are under
the age of 55.


One in eight women over age 45 has had a
heart attack. African Anierican women have a
33 percent higher death rate from coronary dis-
ease than Caucasian women, and a 77 percent
higher death rate from stroke.
Coronary heart disease is a major risk factor
for stroke, which kills over 87,000 women each
year.
An estimated nearly 1 million Americans are
currently living with heart disease. Some
defects occur more often in women, and can
remain undetected into adulthood, putting their
lives at risk.
Statistics are from The American Heart Association
and The Woman's Heart Book by Fredric J. Pashkow,
M.D. and Charlotte Libov, founder of National Women's
Heart Health Day


Get Fit and Eat Healthy


Here are some tips from the
American Heart Association:

Go Red for your heart!-
Don't have time, to exercise?
That's OK. Don't think exercise -
think action. Standing is better
than sitting, walking is better-
than standing. Increase your
physical'activity to at least 30
minutes a day on most days of
the week, even if you do it 10
minutes at a time. Try including
some of these activities in your
'daily life: '
Use the stairs, up and down,
instead of the elevator. Start with
one flight of stairs and gradually
build up to more.
Sweep the floor, wash win-
dows ,or vacuum the carpet
briskly.
Take your children to the
park and play with them. Don't
sit on the bench and watch.
Write physical activity
"appointments", into. your daily
planner or computer schedule.


Take a walk after, dinner
instead of watching TV.
Park a few blocks from the
office or store and walk the rest
of the way.
Take an activity break. Get
up, stretch and walk around.
Hide your remote control-
and get up to change channels on
your TV.

Make Good Food Choices
Healthy food habits can help
you reduce three risk factors for
heart attack and stroke high
blood cholesterol, high blood
pressure and excess body weight;
Set the stage for success and:
Eat a balanced diet empha-
sizing fruits, vegetables, cereal
and grain products, fat-free and
low-fat dairy products, legumes,
nuts, fish, poultry and lean
meats.
Mix one-half regular .soda
with one-half diet soda until you
get used to the taste of diet soda.
Eat foods low in saturated


fat and cholesterol.
Enjoy a large glass of ice
water,.hot tea or another calorie-
free beverage. Garnish with a
twist of lemon or lime and sip
slowly.
When using recipes that
serve a large number of people,
divide the extra portions into
containers to eat throughout the
rest of the week.
Eat with other people. You'll
eat less than if you eat alone.
Know your snack "triggers"
and plan ahead. Be ready with
healthy snacks to fight the urge
for high calorie/high-saturated-
fat foods. Grab pre-cut vegetables
such as carrots and celery when
you're on the run.
Join Choose To Move, a free
women's program that helps you
increase your physical activity
and improve your eating habits.

An Eating Plan


for Healthy Americans


This eating plan from the
American Heart Association is
based on the latest advice of med-
ical and nutrition experts. The
best way to help lower your blood
cholesterol level is to eat less sat-
urated fat and cholesterol, con-
trol your weight and walk or do
another physical activity for at
least 30 minutes each day. Our
plan is based on these dietary
guidelines:
Total calories should be
adjusted to reach and maintain a


healthy weight.
Saturated fat intake should
be 7 to 10 percent of calories (or
even less).
Polyunsaturated fat intake
should be up to 10 percent of
calories.
Monounsaturated fat can
make up to 15 percent of total
calories.
Total fat intake should be
adjusted to caloric needs.
Overweight people should con-
sume no more than 30 percent of


total calories from fat.
Cholesterol intake should be
less than 300 milligrams per day.
Sodium intake should be less
than 2,400 milligrams per day,
which is about 1 teaspoon of sodi-
um chloride (salt).
This is an easy-to-follow guide
to delicious eating. You don't
have to calculate anything--
and you don't have to give up
your favorite foods.

But for thee, O Lord, do I wait; it is
thou, O lord my God, who wilt answer.
R.S.V Psalm 38:15


PE KSI ST NC IN

P RAY C K
In the Bible, Jesus asks His disciples, "Which of
you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and
say to him, 'Friend lend me three loaves; for a
friend of mine has arrived on a journey and I have
nothing to set before him'; and he will answer from
within, 'Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and
my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up and
give you anything'? Yet because of his importunity
he will rise and give him whatever he needs" (Luke
11:5-8). This example that Jesus gives us is a good
reminder of how we should be persistent in our
prayers. And although I have heard it said that
once we pray for something, we can forget about our
prayer request because we have turned it over to
God, this attitude may not be appropriate in all
cases. Because, like the man requesting the three
loaves, we should be- persistent with our prayers
when we are faced with a concerning situation that
remains with us. Praying for months or even years
for various situations 'is sometimes necessary. For
example, because of their love, many parents will'
pray a lifetime for their children's safety and well-
being. We should always be aware that we are God's
children and He is faithful to those who love Him
and seek His help in prayer.

" Reflections On

SFaith

By Roger Campbell


Most of us start longing for
spring shortly after Christmas.
And for many good reasons:
the anticipation of returning song
birds, signs of new life giving
their annual previews of resur-
rection, tulips pushing up green
hands through the still cold soil
announcing brighter days ahead,
and weather forecasts of fair and
warmer replacing wind-chill fac-
tors.
Even those who live in year-
long warmer climates can't resist
looking forward to the season of
new beginnings.
Standing in line at the post
office, I heard a man grumbling
about the weather. My efforts to
brighten his mood were to no
avail until I reminded him of the
calendar's steady march to the
first day of spring.
"I never thought of it that
way," he said, breaking into a
smile.
Looking forward to spring
makes winter seem shorter. No
matter how cold it may be at the
moment, those who focus on the
promise of spring know that just
beyond the snow, balmy breezes
blow.
Sound good?
Enjoy the anticipation.
But don't waste the wonder of
winter.
In these parts, this has been a
week of mind-sticking winter
scenes. Freshly fallen snow made
one feel the whole world was
clean. Pines were heavily pow-
dered and heaps of white on our
birdfeeder gave it the appearance
of a Swiss chalet.
Now I understand why God
comforted Job in his many afflic-
tions by reminding him that He
was the creator of snow (Job
38:22).
Taking in the view from my
office window one morning, I gave
thanks for our Lord's handiwork
and found myself wanting to cap-
ture this strikingly beautiful win-
ter scene and remember it as long
as possible.
Winter's wonder made me
realize the importance of squeez-
ing the most out of every moment
of life.
This is an important
occasion. Don't waste it complain-

ing about the weather.
Rise each morning thanking
God for clouds or sunshine, heat
or cold, and you are sure to have
a better day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said,
"Write it on your heart that every
day is the best day of the year. He
only is rich who owns the day, and
no one owns the day who allows it
to be invaded with worry, fret,
and anxiety."
Each moment of time has eter-
nal value.
We are all stewards of seconds.
The Psalmist was so conscious
of time's fast flight that he record-
ed the following prayer: "So teach
us to number our days, that we
may apply our hearts to wisdom"
(Psalm 90:12), adding, "O satisfy
us early with Your mercy, that we
may rejoice and be glad all our
days" (Psalm 90:14).
Most of us have been prodigals
with time.
We have foolishly spent a pos-
session that is far more valuable
than money.
Give thanks for the prospect of
sunny days ahead, but don't
spring forward too quickly.
Enjoy the wonder of winter
because it is where we are today.
And, whatever the season,
faith sees today as the best day of
the year.

Super


Bowl


c-,l


... and they re good for you, too


February is a month made-to-
order for heart-healthy eating.
With so many people focused on
the romantic heart for Valentine's
Day, it doesn't take much to turn
the spotlight on the bodily heart,
as well.
The American Heart
Association uses their campaign,
"Go Red for Women," to bring
attention to women's heart health
each year, suggesting that red be
worn on Feb. 4 this year to
remind us of the importance of
good diet, exercise and heart dis-
ease prevention.
This is also the month of the
Super Bowl, and while athletes
are often thought of as healthy,
many times they have problems,
too, and can use their influence to
help bring attention to diseases
and prevention.
Four-time Super Bowl champi-
on Joe Montana is offering five
heart-healthy recipes to make
eating right during this year's Big
Game a success. The dishes were
designed as alternatives to notori-
ously high-fat, high-salt party
foods and are part of Montana's
latest team effort against high
blood pressure.
Legendary quarterback Joe
Montana is one of a kind, but
when it comes to high blood pres-
sure he is just one of 65 million
Americans. Montana is battling
against a family'history of heart
disease and has worked hard to
get his blood pressure controlled.
Now he motivates others to get
their blood pressure to goal as
part of the educational campaign
Take Action for Healthy BP, spon-
sored by Novartis
Pharmaceuticals Corporation
"I know firsthand about the
disease and the challenges of
healthy eating," said Montana,
who was diagnosed with high
blood pressure in 2002. "These
recipes aie a simple way to eat
well, even when you are hanging
out with friends watching foot-
ball."


'Montana encourages people to
work with their doctors to set a
blood pressure goal and a game
plan to get it there.
Approximately 70 percent of peo-
ple with high blood pressure do
not have the condition under con-
trol, which puts them at greater
risk of having a major event like a
heart attack or stroke. Half of
people -who are on a treatment
plan still do not have the condi-
tion under control.
"I didn't succeed right away.
My doctor and I had to continue
adjusting my diet, workout sched-
ule and medication. Now my
blood pressure has been to goal
for more than a year," Montana
explained. "The important thing
is not giving up."
Each of Joe's favorite recipes
incorporates a healthy cooking tip
and shows food can still be flavor-
ful without the added salt and fat.
"These recipes provide people a
new healthy option and empha-
size the importance of eating
healthy every day," said Dr.
James. M. Rippe, a Harvard-
trained cardiologist who is work-
ing with Montana on the educa-
tional campaign.
"Eating right isn't always
enough to control high blood pres-
sure, but it is a good first start.
The most important step is set-
ting a plan with your healthcare
provider."
The following five recipes can
be found on the campaign's web-
site, www.healthybp.com, along
with helpful high blood pressure
information. More information on
the campaign is available toll-free
at 877-556-3866.
