X By Commission Tonight
To, Beonidre


DESPITE A CHILLY DRIZZLE, hearts and speeches were warm
when J.J. Corbett (center, in suit) was honored with the first


American Legend Award, presented Friday by the Neighborhood
Improvement Corporation. With his wife, Eva, by his side, Corbett
received the award during the
fifth annual L.B. Brown Heritage
SFestival. Bartow High School's
JROTC unit presented the colors.

Thursday's issue.) (Staff photo

The preliminary plat for the
Silver Companies "active adult
community" on U.S. Highway 98
on the north side of Bartow will
be considered for approval by the
city commission tonight.
The 550-acre development
between Highway 98 and E.F.
Griffin Road has come under
attack from neighbors, who say
the density of 1,796 houses and
apartments is too high.
John and Terry Frost, who live
on E.F. Griffin Road, have put the
city on notice that they intend to
file suit to block the development
if the city does not withdraw its
approval.
Thus far, the each phase of the
development process has been
approved by the planning and
zoning board and by the city com-
mission.
The city rejected a request by
the Polk County Transportation
Planning Organization that the
developer be required to reserve
right-of-way across the north part
of the property for a connector
road joining Highway 98 and E.F.
Griffin Road. The developer has
offered to provide right-of-way
across both the north and the
south boundaries of the project,
but objects to a road which would
bisect the property.
Most of the property would be
age-restricted single-family
homes, in which at least one resi-
dent is at least 55 years old. An
apartment complex at the south-


ern end of the property would not
be age restricted.
The plan calls for a small shop-
ping center and a clubhouse with
a swimming pool, tennis courts,
and lawn sports.
Access to the development
would be from Highway 98, with
emergency vehicle access on E.F.
Griffin Road.
The commission will hold a
work session at 5 o'clock this
afternoon, and will reconvene for
its regular meeting at 6:30.
Other items on the agenda:
An update by Architect Terry
Hunter on plans for renovation
and expansion of Carver
Recreation Center and develop-
ment of a park on the east side of
Bartow High School.
Discussion of appointments
to the Community
Redevelopment Agency, the his-
toric architecture review board,
and the mayor's youth council.
A presentation by Rod
Dagenias of Comcast Cable TV
regarding cable service to Bartow.

winners of the city's water conser-
vation poster contest.

gram at Bartow High School for

On Saturday, Feb. 12, get up
early and head on downtown to
visit the Downtown Antique Sale.
The sale will feature Bartow's
first boot sale.
Have some treasures you'd
like to sell, yet not enough to
bother with a yard sale? Or per-
haps you'd like to have a sale, but
don't want people traipsing
through your landscaped yard?
Main Street Bartow, Inc., has
the perfect solution for amateur
retailers a car boot sale.
As the name may suggest,
these sales originated in the
United Kingdom, where a car
trunk is called a boot.
Sellers may load up their car
trunk, SUV or truck with items
to sell and drive to an allotted
space during the monthly
Downtown Antique Fair to begin
selling.
Sellers are required to pay a
$10 fee for their space during the
fair.
The sales are being held to
coincide with the Downtown
Antiques Fairs, so sellers will be
seen by as many buyers as possi-
ble.
A downtown city street will be
set aside for the car "booters,"

Polk School Superintendent
Dr. Gail McKinzie has. reorga-
nized the district's top ranks and
is now looking at making Polk
schools more accessible to minori-
ty students.
In front of a crowd of more
than 200 at the Bartow Civic
Center on Wednesday, Dr.

McKinzie was the featured speak-
er at the annual L.B. Brown
Festival Luncheon.
Dr. McKinzie referred to the
L.B. Brown Festival, which is
billed as "buildip.g bridges, open-
ing doors," drawing the connec-
tion between the event and the
work currently being done within
the school district in the areas of
diversity and understanding.
The biggest example for Dr.
McKinzie was a new position cre-
ated by her recently approved
staff reorganization senior
director of minority relations. The
director, who will begin work this
summer, will report directly to
the superintendent and work on
ensuring and maintaining staff
diversity.
Dr. McKinzie said she envi-
sions the director as a go-between
for the district and minority pop-
ulations.
While the hurricanes have
stemmed the usual influx of non-
English-speaking migrant work-
ers, Dr. McKinzie said that there
is a constant stream of non-
English speaking parents with
school-aged children entering the
county.
"Because we have this bur-
geoning growth in the county, I
think it's important we have
someone in upper level manage-
ment that this is their primary
focus, to look at what we can do in
coordinating the work of many
different departments, agencies
within their communities to bet-
ter serve our students and par-
ents who do not speak English."
She considers the position as a
"centralized resource," someone
who can "bridge the gaps and
bridge the disenfranchisement
that exists."
People at all levels of govern-
ment and in service organizations
have been supportive of educa-
tion, Dr. McKinzie said. The
friendly climate, she said, has


made her job easier.
Along with the Polk Education
Association, and representatives
from the state and national edu-
cation associations, Dr. McKinzie
said the district is working
through the county staff develop-
ment office to institute compre-
hensive diversity training in the
district.
Her plan is for educators to
take the training back to their
respective schools and share it
with administrators and support
staff to help the entire school sys-
tem better identify needs among
minority populations and find
ways to effectively deal with prob-
lems and meet those needs.
"Sometimes we do things that
we don't intentionally mean to be
harmful to those people, but they
may seem that way, and percep-
tion is reality."
She also pledged her conviction
in making the training a more
permanent fixture saying, "This
is not a one-shot staff develop-
ment opportunity."
"We cannot just touch on this
and other issues, but make sure
this is an ongoing effort in a
focused fashion," Dr. McKinzie
said. "We must only take on that


Polk County Historical
Museum will transported back to
the nostalgic 1940s on Saturday,
Feb. 12, when it hosts
"Sweetheart Swing," a USO can-
teen party, from 6 to 10 p.m.
The event, hosted by Polk
County Leisure Services, will fea-
ture a five piece swinging jazz
band, swing dance lessons, a mil-
itary exhibit, refreshments, and
door prizes.
Military or 1940s era dress is
encouraged.
Swingtime out of St.
Petersburg will provide the
entertainment for the evening
with the Pepper & Fine Thyme
band, swing dance instructors,
and swing dance performers.
Guests will receive an hour long
swing dance lesson, followed by
three hours of live entertain-
ment.
Restaurateurs of Downtown


which we can truly support."
Most important, said Dr.
McKinzie, is a community-wide
effort to stress education. She
said that students expect to hear
parents and teachers harp on the
value of education, but they will
really take notice when they hear
it from other sources, especially
their grandparents and mentors.
By getting the community
involved in just encouraging edu-
cation, she said the county would
become that much closer to ideas
laid out in PolkVision, the plan
for mapping out growth and pros-
perity in the county.
It won't happen overnight
though, she cautioned.
"There is an achievement gap
here and we've got to close it," Dr.
McKinzie said. "There is no magic
bullet."
The key to closing the gap, she
said, was making sure the district
was doing everything right in ele-
mentary school. If that happens,
the learning gains will carry over
into middle school, then high
school and even into the next
level.
"We can't wait for the next
study to come out," she said.
"We've got to act now."


Bartow will serve up a variety of
foods, from warm appetizers to
ice cream sodas.
Cost of this event is $12 for a
single ticket or $20 per couple.
Proceeds of the event will be
directly benefiting "Operation
USO Care Package." The opera-
tion delivers packages containing
toiletries, sunscreen, phone-
cards, cameras, and other ameni-
ties to members of the U.S.
Armed Forces deployed around
the world, to show them that
'they have not been forgotten and
to provide a touch of home.
To purchase tickets in advance
visit the leisure service division
office at 515 East Boulevard
Street in Bartow or the Historical
Museum at 100 East Main Street
in Bartow. Tickets are limited.

event, call 534-4340 or visit

cial way.

lands or Hardee counties who
has experienced the recent death
of a loved one.
The three-day retreat is

lains and other adults who have
experience working with chil-
dren.
Activities include horseback
riding, swimming, canoeing, arts
and crafts, hayrides and much
more. A memorial service offers
the children a chance to remem-
ber their special loved ones.
Campers return home with

Soft-Spoken Corbett


Well-Suited for Honor


For its first "American Legend Award,"
the Neighborhood Improvement Corp.
could not have made a better choice than
Jordon Jerome Corbett.
Known to everyone as J.J., the soft-spo-
ken Corbett is the very definition of a gen-
tleman.
Born in the Tiger Bay community near
Fort Meade in 1922, Corbett attended his
first eiblht years of school in a one-room
schoolhouse at Piecrce, then completed
high school at Bartow's Union Academy.
He enrolled iin Bethune-Cookman
College in Daytona Beach, but like many
young men of his generation, chose to
leave college to join the Army.
He became a paratrooper, arguably the
most elite force in the Army in World War
II, and served as a member of the little-
known all-black 555th Parachute Infantry
Battalion. Originally alerted for combat
duty, the "Triple Nickles" were diverted to
defend the western United States from
Japanese firebombs.
That assault, by balloons outfitted with
bombs, set free to cross the Pacific, is little
known to Americans. It is seldom taught in
either public schools or military schools.
After serving in the Army from 1943 to
1946, Corbett reentered college, earning
his baccalaureate degree from North
Carolina A&T College, followed by stud-
ies at Florida A&M University, Michigan
State University, Montclair University,
Rutgers University, and Boston College.
He played football in both high school
and college, and when he joined the facul-
ty of Union Academy as a math teacher in
1950, he served as assistant football coach
and head track and field coach.
After 19 years at UA, with the end of


segregated schools, Corbett moved to
Summerlin Institute now Bartow High
School where he became chairman of
the math department and continued
coaching football, track and field, and
cross-country.
His even temperament helped black stu-
dents and white students and their par-
ents make the often stressful transition
from segregated to integrated schools.
He retired in 1980 after 30 years in the
classroom, and two years later was elected
to the Polk County school board, where he
served for 12 years.
He remains active in community organi-
zations, including membership on the
board of directors of Citrus & Chemical
Bank.
We have never known him to have an
unkind word to say to, or about, anyone,
or to expect deferential treatment in the
fashion of too many elected officials.
The only downside to selection of J.J.
Corbett for this year's honor is that it will
be difficult to find someone of comparable
merit for next year's "American Legend
Award."

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

Vagrants and Tramps Were Unwelcome


When last we visited, I told of
the discovery at Dad's house of a
1901 book, "The Charter and
Revised Code of Ordinances of
the City of Bartow, Fla.," a 93-
page volume (including the index
and the five pages comprising the
city's charter).
SIt provided for a mayor with
great authority, including duties
as Judge of the Police Court.
It gave the seven-member city
council the authority, by a two-
thirds vote, to expel its members
"for disorderly conduct during
Council meeting" among other
things.
One of the duties of the council
was to appoint a School
Committee, whose duties in their
entirety were set forth in these
words:
"To exercise a general supervi-
sion over all schools under the
jurisdiction of the City, and rec'
ommend to the Council such
measures as, in their judgment,
will promote the interest of said
schools."
Presumably that was a more
prestigious' appointment than
being named to the Sanitary
Committee, whose job was "To


look after such things as will pro-
mole the general good health of
the city."
The City Marshal was charged
to insure that "streets, sidewalks,
lanes, alleys and public places are
kept unobstructed, and remove
all public nuisances."
He also was to "clean up and
light the Council Chamber."
He collected fines, turning the
money over to the Treasurer. He
was required to feed and "furnish
bed clothing and all necessaries"
for the prisoners in his custody.
He was required to "examine
ill dangerous stove pipes and
chimneys reported to him, and
order them to be made safe; and
shall frequently examine privies
and compel the owners to keep
them clean."
He was required to "remove
dead carcasses to prevent nui-
sance," this to be done at the
expense of the keeper. He was
required to impound all livestock
running at large.
He was required to "wear a
uniform made of dark blue mate-
rial, and trimmed with brass but-
tons, coat, vest and pants to be of
same color."


For his services, he received a
salary of "$40.00 per month,
payable monthly, and a fee of
$1.00 for each conviction before
the Mayor's Court, of all persons
arrested by him; 35 cents per day
for each prisoner boarded by
him, and such other fees as are
allowed him by the Ordinances."
Under Section 166 of the code,
the Police Court could impose
penalties of a $100 fine and 60
days confinement in "the city
prison," though it appears that
miscreants were more likely "to
be put at labor on streets of
Bartow."
And what offenses against the
peace was the Marshal charged
with policing?
"No person shall throw any
paper, litter or trash upon the
streets, sidewalks or thorough-
fares, nor upon any public square
or school grounds."
"No person shall; within the
limits of the City, paste, tack, or
otherwise fasten, any bill, poster
or advertisement of any kind, to,
upon, or against any shade tree or
other tree, telegraph, telephone,
electric light or other pole."
"All persons wandering or


strolling about in idleness, who
are able to work, and have no
property to support them; all per-
sons leading an idle, immoral or
profligate life, who have no prop-
erty to support them; and who
are able to work, and who do no
work; all persons who are able to
work, having no property to sup-
port them, and who have not
some visible and known means of
fair, honest and reputable liveli-
hood; all professional gamblers,
living in idleness, shall be
deemed and considered vagrants,
and it shall be the duty of the
Marshal to notify all such persons
to keep off the streets of this City;
and all such persons, so notified,
who shall again appear on the
streets, shall be punished as pre-
scribed in Section 166 of this
Code."
"All tramps shall leave the'
City within two hours after being
warned, and, upon failure to do
so, shall be punished as pre-
scribed in Section 166 of this
Code."

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES /By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Fun with Plumbing


SI a 4


Irf (vet Ihe lob I one


I am glad I have a homeown-
er's manual that tells all of us
totally incompetents how to take
care of things without any help.
I have had it since 1989 and
have used it only once before.
The first problem was years
ago when the kitchen sink faucet
kept running and it wouldn't
stop, no matter how much pres-
sure was put on it. Ikept pointing
it out to my husband who said,
"Oh, yeah, I need to fix that."
I finally decided to do it myself
and got out my trusty homeown-
er's manual that will solve all of
my household problems. It even
had pictures of everything that
didn't show.
I first sent my son, Blake, to the
basement to turn off the main
water supply. Then I removed the
faucet from the water supply and
took it to my favorite hardware
store. They told me that I needed
a new faucet and I bought one. I
still have it. It was a lovely faucet.
I went back to the house,
screwed it to the water supply as
directed and sent Blake back to
the basement to turn the water
back on.
I was going out to dinner that
evening with my husband and a
visiting architect from out of
town. I looked pretty good, for a
lady plumber, I thought. Little
black dress, pearl earrings and
necklace, black patent high heels,
and a squirt of my favorite
cologne.
Ed arrived.home with the visi-
tor and said, "Pat, Joe has a
headache. Could you get him an
aspirin and a glass of water?"
Well, of course I could, and I
went into the kitchen with Ed


and the visitor following him.
I went to the sink, pointing out
with pride my new faucet. When
I turned it on, it hesitated just a
split second, escaped from its
pipe with a loud "WHOOSH"
and proved to one and all that we
have excellent water pressure in
our county.
I screamed to Blake, who
heard me from across the street,
where he was playing football, to
come back and turn the water off.
He had no trouble hearing me.


^If ^.^^ w- -


He turned it off again.
Ed looked at me in my wet
outfit and hair that looked like I
had gone swimming, at the visi-
tor who was wearing a conserva-
tive suit and tie, and decided not
to go out to dinner. He went out
and bought hamburgers for
everyone.
Ed's guest was happy about
everything because he had gotten
rid of his migraine headache
without any pills.

A MAYPOLE DANCE at Lewis Elementary School in 1927.


By LETA WRIGHT

I want to bring everyone up to
date about the renovation of the
Fort Meade Historical Museum.
All the contents of the mu-
seum have been packed profes-
sionally and stored. The walls
and ceilings are the next project.
We don't know the length of
time restoration will take, but
we are using the Train Museum
as our meeting place. It seems
the volunteers have become
more active than ever.
We are planning for the Lewis
Anna Woodbury Elementary
School put on the annual May-
pole Dane again this year in the
backyard of the museum.
This is a big event every year
and all the school children come.
Last year, we had about 650 chil-
dren attend.
After the dance program, the
museum volunteers serve punch
and cookies.


The picture this week is a
Maypole Dance put on by chil-
dren in Fort Meade in 1927.
As I rode by Fred Bobbett's
home the other day, Alberta Bob-
bett Sparks, a niece of Fred, and
daughter of Albert, was sitting
on the front porch, so I stopped
to visit.
During our talk, the Maypole
Dance was mentioned, and she
immediately went inside and
brought a picture out and loaned
it to me for this news article.
Now everyone can enjoy seeing
it.
The historic dance was held
on the school yard.
Our membership is growing.
We appreciate this interest
shown in the museum. We are-
making big plans to landscape
around the bandstand and hope
to have some spring programs.
Its good to have February al-
ready into the year. We can cele-
brate giving Valentines.

I had an adventure in Janu-
ary with mouth and eye surgery,
but I recuperated with a trip to
Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Cata-
lina, Domincan Republic and
Nassau.
The islands were as glamor-
ous to me as ever and enjoyed
the tours on all of them. Some of
my favorite things about the trip
were the forts, the narrow
streets, the lavish jewelry stores
and the famous Atlantis Hotel,
based on the story of the city
that disappeared into the sea.
The hotel was fabulous. The
vivid bright colors and costumes
they put into their shows are
really a sight to see. The service
they give is unlike anywhere, as
they want to make you happy.
I was treated like a queen so
much on this trip, I already
thinking of a journey to Barba-
dos.
Food for thought: wisdom out-
weighs strength.

Drop In The Bucket Campaign to Benefit VISTE


Just about anyone would be
willing to give up the price of a
lunch to help feed someone who
had no food.
That's what Volunteers In
Service To The Elderly (VISTE)
is hoping for with their Drop In
The Bucket campaign.
The fundraiser kicked off on
Jan. 20 at the Bartow Chamber
of Commerce OJ Breakfast, and
continues until Friday, Feb. 18.
Large black buckets were dis-
tributed at the event to busi-
nesses and individuals willing to
collect monies to benefit VISTE's
efforts to help feed the elderly.
The VISTE program has
served more than 9,000 seniors


during the last 20 years, provid-
ing basic services that enable the
elderly to continue living in their
own homes. Donations received
from this fundraiser will help


Bartow residents have a better
quality of life, a spokesman said.
Anyone wishing to make a do-
nation to VISTE may call its of-
fice at 863-284-0828.

Citrus Canker Cases Identified in

Indian River and St. Lucie Counties Health Happening


Identification of citrus canker
in Sebastian, Indian River
County, and in a citrus grove lo-
cated in Fort. Pierce, St. Lucie
County, were announced by Flor-
ida Department of Agriculture
and Consumers Services
(DACS).
During a routine Sentinel
Tree Survey conducted by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
on Jan. 25, three citrus trees
suspected of having citrus can-
ker were found on two adjacent
properties in Sebastian. The can-
ker diagnosis was confirmed by
state pathologists on Jan. 26.
Also during a routine grove
survey conducted on Jan. 26 by
the DACS, 38 citrus trees sus-
pected of having citrus canker
were found in three blocks of
grapefruit in Fort Pierce. Plant
pathologists confirmed the diag-
nosis Jan. 27.
State citrus canker eradica-
tion program personnel immedi-
ately launched a comprehensive
survey of both these areas to
identify the extent of the infec-
tion and to prevent the disease
from spreading further.
Citrus canker spreads primar-
ily by wind driven rain and by
people moving infected citrus
plant material and/or infected
gardening related tools. Move-
ment of infected citrus plant ma-
terial out of South Florida has


been linked to the spread of can-
ker to uninfected areas.
The 2004 hurricanes have
caused outbreaks of citrus can-
ker in other Florida counties and
eradication programs to address
these outlying infections are un-
der way.
Department personnel will
continue inspecting properties
surrounding the positive finds in
Sebastian and Fort Pierce until
all positive trees have been iden-
tified. This should be accom-
plished within the next few
weeks.
The citrus canker eradication
law requires the removal of all
exposed citrus trees within 1,900
feet of an infected tree. Removal
of positive and exposed trees is
under way.
The state and the USDA are
working with area homeowner
associations to distribute infor-
mation about citrus canker and
eradication program procedures.
A public information session will
be held in February in Sebastian
on a yet to be determined date.
Residents will be able to view
maps showing the locations of
the positive trees and the associ-
ated 1,900 foot exposure zones.
Scientists also will attend the
meeting to answer questions
about the science behind the
eradication effort and the impact
of the disease.


Until the completed survey
determines the extent of the in-
fection, the state is asking for
the cooperation of residents in
these areas to help stop the fur-
ther spread of the disease. Resi-
dents can help in the following
ways:
Do not move citrus off your
property.
Do not give citrus to your
friends or neighbors.
Do not ship citrus.
Do not prune or clip citrus.
Do not plant citrus trees.
If you come into contact
with the citrus in your yard, de-
contaminate with any household
disinfectant that is safe for per-
sonal use.
Do not dispose of citrus tree
clippings or fruit remains. If you
have remains that must be dis-
posed of, double bag them for
disposal with your household
garbage, not your yard trash.
People who suspect their trees
may have citrus canker are
asked to contact the citrus can-
ker toll free helpline at 1-800-
282-5153 and an inspector will
be sent to check the trees.
Additional information about
citrus canker quarantine zones
and decontamination procedures
is available on the department's
web site at http://www.doacs.
state.fl.us/canker.


Tax Quiz: How Much Tax Help Do You Need?


Now is a good time to decide
whether you plan to prepare
your 2004 tax return yourself or
turn it over to a professional.
The answer generally depends
on how complicated your tax
situation is, advises the Florida
Institute of Certified Public Ac-
countants (FICPA).
The assistance available to
do-it-yourselfers has grown more
sophisticated. The Internal
Revenue Service web site, at
www.irs.gov, and other web sites
provide access to tax rules, filing
procedures, and downloadable
forms.
There's also tax preparation
software designed for calculating
and filing tax returns.
"Not everyone needs the help
of a CPA or tax professional," a
FICPA spokesman said, "but as
your financial situation becomes
more complex, paying for tax ad-
vice and preparation could save
you money in the long run."
To determine how much help
you need, FICPA says, ask your-
self these questions:
Do you have the time?
The IRS estimates that it can
take roughly 28 hours to re-
search tax law, organize your re-
cords, and complete a standard
1040 return with three common
schedules Schedule A for
itemized deductions, Schedule B
for interest and dividends, and
Schedule D for capital gains. The
Form 1040 instruction booklet
alone is more than 130 pages
long.
Are you a salaried employee
who takes the standard deduc-
tion?
If so, your return is likely to
be simple and you may be able to
do the work on your own or by
using tax preparation software.
Keep in mind that using soft-
ware, as opposed to paper and
pencil, greatly reduces the likeli-
hood of mathematical errors.
Are you technologically


savvy?
If you are comfortable using
computers and various software
programs, you may benefit from
using tax preparation software.
Today, most tax programs use a
question-and-answer interview
format that prompts you through
the filing process, ascertains
your eligibility for deductions
and credits, and helps you enter
information on the forms. How-
ever, if you are not technologi-
cally savvy and are unaccus-
tomed to using tax software, you
may want to seek some help
from your CPA.
Have you kept abreast of
changing tax laws?
Tax law is constantly chang-
ing and getting more complex. If
you plan on doing your own
taxes, it's important that you
keep up to date on the latest
changes and how they affect
your situation.
Are you itemizing your de-
ductions on Schedule A?
Owning a home is often the
:factor that makes itemizers out
of those who take the standard-
deduction. If you own a home,
your mortgage interest and real
estate taxes are deductible on
Schedule A. Most taxpayers can
complete Schedule A on their
own.
Have you had a major life
change, such as marriage or di-
vorce?
Lifestyle changes often call for!
specialized help, both in terms of
taxes and financial planning op-
portunities.
Have you exercised incen-
tive stock options or actively
traded stocks?
Complex returns have more
gray areas where judgment calls
and expert advice can make a
significant difference. CPAs and
other tax professionals are typi-
cally well versed in these areas.
Do you own a vacation home
or rental property?

Owning a second home, par-
ticularly one that you rent out,
can complicate your tax situa-
tion. For example, depending on
how often you rent the house
and how much you use it your-
self, different tax rules apply.
CPAs can explain the impact of
ownership and rental income on
your tax liability so you pay the
correct amount of tax.
Are you self-employed or do
you own a small business?
Self-employed individuals and
small business owners are fre-
quently the targets of IRS
audits. Working with a CPA can
help your business minimize
audit risk.
Do you have a high income
or live in a state with high in-
come taxes?
Watch out. You may be sub-
ject to the Alternative Minimum
Tax or AMT. The AMT, which
eliminates many itemized deduc-
tions, was created to ensure that
the wealthy pay their share of
taxes. But because the thresh-
olds have not been adjusted
regularly for inflation, more fil-
ers are finding themselves sub-
ject to this tax. If you think you
might be affected, consult a
CPA.
"Keep in mind that tax plan-
ning is a year-round activity, the
spokesman said. "Don't wait un-
til April to get your taxes in or-
der."

Flu Shot Clinic Planned


When most people think of
Valentine's Day, they might
visualize Cupid shooting his ar-
rows in the name of love, but on
Feb. 14, the Polk County Health
Department will be dispensing
its own brand of love in the form
of flu shots at the Bartow Civic
Center.
The clinic will be held from
10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Health Department has
joined with the Greater Bartow
Chamber of Commerce and the
City of Bartow Parks and Rec-
reation Department to hold the
flu clinic.
"It's not too late to be vacci-
nated," explained Cathy Wig-
gins, Polk County Health De-
partment senior community
health nurse, said. "Now is the
peak time for travel from the
north to Polk County and the
CDC has determined that a sig-
nificant number of high-risk in-
dividuals in Florida remain un-
vaccinated."
Flu season continues through
the end of March.
Adults should get a flu shot if
they are 50 years old or older;
have chronic medical conditions;
are residents or employees of a
facility that cares for persons
with chronic medical conditions;
are pregnant; or are in close con-
tact with infants and small chil-
dren.
After an initial shortage of the
vaccine, flu shots are now avail-
able through the Polk County
Health Department. Cost for the
flu vaccine is $20 per person.
Those covered under Medicare
can receive the vaccination at no


cost with proof of Medicare cov-
erage.
Appointments are not neces-
sary.
"We are thrilled to partner
with the health department in
getting the word out about this
important health issue," Jeff
Clark, Bartow Chamber execu-
tive director, said.
In addition to informing the
public about the clinic, the
Chamber will also be promoting
the clinic to its business mem-
bers.
"Aside from the obvious seri-
ous health risks, flu also takes
employees out of the workplace.
It can cause havoc on many lev-
els," Clark said.
For more information, call the
health department's flu line at
519-7900.
For more information about
influenza and steps to protect in-
dividuals and families, visit the
Department of Health's website

Prevention at www.cdc.gov.

Week of February 7, 2005


A tribute to Jimmie Sue Baden

Can you imagine coming to work without fail
every day for 34 years? It can't be done,
you say? Yes, it can be done, and it was.
Jimmie Sue Baden came to work for us on
February 3, 1969. She was a young woman
with a family, but took her job very seri-
ously. Almost at once, she set a personal
goal for herself: perfect attendance. It
took a couple of years to obtain that goal,
but she did it, and she maintained her per-
fect attendance record for the next 34
years! She was not superwoman, just a
regular person like you and I. She raised
her family, kept doctors appointments, had
the flu, took care of her elderly parents,
went through good times and bad times as
we all do, all the while demonstrating her
firm commitment to her job. Jimmie Sue
retired on Wednesday, January 19. Jim-
mie Sue is an exemplary person and we will
miss her very much! For the first time in
all my years as an Area Manager, on Thurs-
day, January 20, I had to cover Jimmie
Sue s run.

Another BHS Softball Superstar

Signs College Letter of Intent


In accordance with a Florida
Department of Education direc-
tive for all school districts, the
Polk school district will not allow
students to have electronic com-
munications devices in their pos-
session during administration of
the FCAT tests even if they do
not use them.
This ban of electronic commu-
nications devices includes cell
phones and pagers.
"The state is very explicit in
its language," Wilma Ferrer,
senior director of the school dis-
trict's planning, accountability
and evaluation office, said. "Pos-
session of an electronic device
may be cause for invalidation."
The schools also will make no
provisions for cell phone storage
during testing.


FCAT writing tests begin next
week with FCAT reading, math
and science testing to begin in
March.
Students also are prohibited
from having notes or scratch pa-
per with them prior to test ad-
ministration.
The school district has com-
municated and reinforced these
directives to school principals
and test proctors.
"We want students and the
public to understand that we
take these directives very seri-
ously and fully intend to enforce
them," Ferrer said.
For further information on
these directives contact Wilma
Ferrer at 534-0688 or Victoria
Ash at the Florida Department
of Education at 850-245-0788.

Bartow High School's Jerrica
Sanchez signed her letter of in-
tent to play softball and attend
Polk Community College. Joined
by her family and friends, she
celebrated by having a signing
party held the school's cafeteria
on Thursday, Jan. 20.
Jerrica will be going on a full
ride scholarship for two years.
She will be joining her sister,..
Jessica, who also is attending
PCC with a full softball scholar-
ship.
"I am really excited for her
and all of the girls who have
signed," varsity Head Coach
Glenn Rutenbar said.
Planning on majoring in radi-
ology, she hopes to transfer to
the University of South Florida
to finish her degree after gradu-
ating from PCC.
Sanchez is a pitcher and left
fielder for the varsity girl's soft-
ball team at Bartow and has
been a starting player since her
freshman year. She also had of-
fers from Florida Southern and
Santa Fe Community College,
but chose PCC to stay closer to
home.
"My family and friends are all
from this area and I liked the
program that PCC had to offer,"
she said in an interview at her
signing party.
