'American Legend' Winner's


Story Reads Like A Movie


: By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

:In a world, wracked by global
warfare, the fate of the American
west is left up to one man and his
-ragtag band of misfit smoke-
Sjumping paratroopers. Only they
haLe the capability to foil an evil
Japanese plot to send tens of thou-
sands of bomb laden air balloons
across the Pacific Ocean.
It sure sounds like something
film producer Jerry Bruckheimer
would be promoting today, but
believe it or not, it actually hap-
pened and on Friday, one of
Bartow's own was celebrated for
his part in the little-known attack
on America during WWII, along
with a lifetime of leadership and
service in the community.
Jordon Jerome (J.J.) Corbett
was honored on Friday during the
first day of the L.B. Brown
Heritage Festival. Corbett was
the first-ever recipient of the
American; Legend Award by the
Neighborhood Improvement
Corporation of Bartow, an award
created in his honor that will be
now be handed out annually.
Corbett was recognized for his
lifetime of service in Bartow as an
educator and community leader,
but it was his time in the military
that took center stage during the
ceremony.
SBefore the presentation, Rear
Admiral Adrian Jackson, Deputy
Director, .Plans and Policy U.S.
Central Command. Macdill AFB,
gave a history of black soldiers in
the military and the advances in
civil rights that were made by the
military out of necessity. He out-
lined the sacrifice of black sol-
diers throughout American histo-
ry, from Crispus Attucks to the
Triple Nickles.
"That, my friends is black his-
tory. That, is American history,"
said Jackson.


Congressman Adam Putnam,
Community National Bank
President George Harris, and
Triple Nickel national President
Joseph Murchison also addressed
the crowd on the unusually cold
January morning.
School board Member Brenda
Reddout was also in attendance'
and at the school board meeting
-on Tuesday, suggested that the
county should seriously consider
honoring him by naming a school
after him.
Congressman Putnam also had
high praise for him, saying, "Mr.
Corbett has built a lot of bridges'
in this community and has been a
role model for everyone and I'm
glad that we're honoring him
specifically and I'm glad that
we're bringing attention to the
role our military has played in
breaking down barriers in soci-
ety."
Corbett called the whole pre-
sentation a "humbling situation,"
but felt that he was by no means
alone in playing a part in the
American experience.
"When I came out of the ser-
vice, a lot of us came out at the
same time and everybody had a
story to tell and there's a lot of
them still out there that haven't
been told," he said.
For now, the deceivingly youth-
ful looking 83-year-old said he
will continue along the same
path, volunteering at his church,
St. James African Methodist
Church, participating in the Fort
Meade and Bartow
Crimestoppers program, the Polk
County Board policy committee
and helping out in other organi-
zations.
"I'm just gonna try and stay as
involved and active as I possibly*
can. I don't want to do too many
things at one time, but I want to
stay involved in the community."


The Triple Nickles
Corbett was part of the 555th
Parachute Infantry Battalion,
AKA the "Triple Nickles." The
unit was an all-black parachuting
squad that was not allowed to see
combat in the European Theater
during World War II. Instead, the
soldiers were forced to stay state-
side, with little to do other than
train and wait.
That all changed on May 5,
1945, when the battalion left for
Camp Mackall in Oregon on a
"highly classified" mission. By the
time the 555th arrived in the
Pacific Northwest, rumors had
begun circulating of deadly hot
air balloons with Japanese mark-
ings on them appearing along the
coast.

Operation: Firefly
During WWII, the Japanese
released thousands of hydrogen-
filled balloons with incendiaries
and explosives attached.
The balloons were released
along the jet stream and would
travel at speeds of up to 123 mph
at an altitude of 35,000 feet. With
a crude timing system of sand-
bags, the balloons would drop
their bombs at a certain point.
The intention was to create
massive forest fires in the west-
ern United States, drawing atten-
tion away from the war effort and
creating terror on the home front.
Corbett and his battalion were
part of a hush-hush project code
named "Operation: Firefly." The
Triple Nickles now had a new
moniker as well "smoke
jumpers." The 555th was
retrained to parachute into heav-
ily forested areas and fight fires.
The Japanese plan, while high-
ly ingenious, was logistically and
militarily a failure, thanks in
part to the efforts of one of the
most unique military battalions
in American history the Triple
Nickles.

Three of Bartow's most influ-
ential citizens have gotten
together for a goal they all agree
has been long overdue improv-
ing the community by facilitating
homeownership and economic
development.
Last month Leo Longworth,
Clifton Lewis and Ken Riley
incorporated the Bartow
Community Development Cor-
poration (BCDC), a private non-
profit organization, independent
of the Community Redevelop-
ment Agency (CRA), with the
goal of improving all parts of
Bartow.
"There have been a lot of
homes, vacant lots, that over
time, have not had any type of
improvement at all," said Riley,
BCDC president. "I know that
there are people who would like
to come back and live in the area
but there are no houses that they
feel are adequate enough."
The organization will function
as a conduit or referral agency,
providing information to help
point potential homeowners in
the direction of affordable homes.
To do this, the BCDC will hold
workshops providing financial
information to citizens with bad
or no credit.


"You bring housing in,
you make the community
look better, but you also
get help to create jobs. '
Leo Longworth, BCDC

The group said they will con-
nect aspiring homeowners with
mortgage lenders and will refer
those who do not really need
their help in the right direction
as well.
BCDC will be funded through
grants and private donations, but
also will look to the CRA for
financial assistance with proper-
ty acquisition.
"You bring housing in, you
make the community look better,
but you also get help to create
jobs. You create jobs and that
helps economically, helps the
entire community," said
Longworth.
He added that the BCDC will
not limit its scope to the east or
west side of Bartow, and will look
at areas out of the CRA's bound-
aries.
"We're not limited to east side
or west side we're Bartow,"
said Lewis.
While community and eco-
nomic development are the key


Blount St.
PIN.


goals of the newly-formed group,
the BCDC said it is not at all lim-
ited to low income housing.
S"Often times, when existing
residents hear the term 'afford-
able housing' they cringe and
equate that with slums," said
Lewis. "We are talking about
affordable housing, but we are
talking about substantial hous-
ing that will create better condi-
tions for the individual."
Currently, there are agencies
in place that provide similar
assistance, but the BCDC mem-
bers said a community-based
organization was long overdue in
Bartow.
"Each community has it's own
unique needs. Most of the agen-
cies are county wide, regional or
state wide," said Lewis. "While
they have a stake in different
types of home improvements,
they may not know what is best


City Commissioner Cal Adams
will have at least two opponents
in his bid for re-election to a third
term on the Bartow city commis-
sion on April 5, but as of noon
today, Commissioner Leo
Longworth is unopposed.
Qualifying opened on Monday
and closes at 5 p.m. Friday.
Adams, a retired building con-
tractor, holds Seat 4 on the com-
mission, one of the two "at large"
positions.
A familiar face will run against
Adams this year: Gerald Cochran
of 1615 East North St. Cochran, a


for Bartow."
The BCDQ members said they
do not intend to compete with
programs like the CRA and
Keystone Challenge Fund, but
help facilitate those agencies
efforts within Bartow.
"We will not be building spec
homes," said Longworth. "We will
get the individuals qualified first
and the down payment assis-
tance they need, and we will
have some of them turn keys into
their new homes."
Housing consultant Perry
Burnham, on loan from the CRA,
cited the Arts and Architecture
program in Orlando, where
neighborhoods were monitored
over time to see the impact of one
home's improvement on the sur-
rounding residences. Burnham
said the study documented how
nearby residences would begin to
improve as well over time. He


frequent critic of the city commis-
sion and city management, is
retired. He has run for commis-
sion a number of times, but has
never won.
Making his first bid for elec-
tion to the commission is Brian

utive director of Bartow

envisions a similar result in
Bartow.
First on the list for the BCDC
is a street by street inventory of
Bartow, identifying vacant
homes, blighted properties and
"clusters" of available homes
where potential "mini-communi-
ties" could be set up. One of the
most difficult problems they will
face is tracking down absentee
owners.
The group also is seeking out
home buyers and mortgage
lenders to begin the process.
While the road ahead is long,
and as yet unpaved, the BCDC
isn't worried at all.
"I think every one of us has a
track record of getting things
done," said Lewis. "When we say
it's goingto happen, you know it's
going to get done."


Longworth, of 1395 East
Magnolia St., is serving as mayor
this year. He is seeking his fourth
term on the commission. He is a
State Farm Insurance agent, and
holds Seat 5, which. represents
the east election district.
Candidates for Seat 4 may live
anywhere in the city limits, while
candidates for Seat 5 must live in
the east election district.
All voters who live within the
city limits are eligible to vote in
both races.

Jimmie Sue Baden Retires With 34 Years'

Perfect Attendance As School Bus Drier


SHARING A COUPLE OF JOKES,
Congressman Adam Putnam elicited laughs from
the audience while speaking at the "American
Legend" award ceremony on Friday. Putnam called
J;J: Corbett, the award recipient, role model for
everyone," and said he was glad that people from


Bartow were getting together to celebrate the
strides in diversity brought about by the military.

Many of us who have attended
school in the Alturas and Bartow
area within the past 30 or so
years 'remember "Miss Jimmie
Sue."
She was one of the drivers who
got us safely to school on the bus
day after day.
Literally day after day.
Jimmie Sue Baden didn't miss
a single day of work for more
than 30 years.
She raised her family, kept
doctor appointments, took care of
her elderly parents, and went
through good times and bad -
all the while remaining firmly
committed to her job, her super-
visor, Sandra Lancaster, said.


Born and raised in Bartow,
Mrs. Baden lived on her father's
dairy farm, Jones Dairy, at what
was then known as the Wingate
area, and she worked and helped
her father on the farm as a'teen.
"I guess that's where I got my
working' from," she said.
Later, she married Carlos
"Buddy" Baden, and the two had
a son, Troy.
Mrs. Baden went to work as a
school bus driver on Feb. 3, 1969.
She was a young woman with a
family, but she took her job very
seriously, Ms. Lancaster said.
Almost at once, she set a per-
sonal goal for herself perfect
attendance. She struggled with
that goal for the first two years
as family responsibilities kept
her at home some, but after that,


she maintained a perfect atten-
dance record for 34 years.
SMrs. Baden retired on Jan. 19,
and on Jan. 20, someone had to
cover her route for the first time.
What does one who has
worked every day the schools are
open for so many years do with
all this new time on their hands?
"I plan on catching up on my
rest and go fishing some," Mrs.
Baden said. "We also go to River
Ranch some, and I want to do
more with my two grandkids,
Tyler and Paige, and at my
church, Christian Home Freewill
Baptist.
"I enjoyed the kids and work-
ing with Ms. Lancaster. She was
very nice to me."

Historic Bok Sanctuary will
present three special carillon re-
citals performed on one of the
world's finest carillons for Valen-
tine's Day, Feb. 14, Presidents'
Day, Feb. 21, and the second
Moonlight Recital of the season
Feb. 22.

Presidents' Day adds another
dimension to patriotism with

America, the Beautiful."
Both carillon concerts will be
state-of-the-art recordings of
works performed by Milford My-
hre, carillonneur emeritus.

will be able to enjoy the carillon
recital while strolling through
the tranquil Olmsted-designed
gardens bathed in moonlight.
"Since the Moonlight Recital
falls on George Washington's
Birthday," De Turk said, "I plan
to include music to honor and
commemorate the nation's first
president, in addition to music
appropriate to a dreamy, moonlit
night."
Guests are encouraged to
bring blankets, lawn chairs and
insect repellent to use while en-
joying the recital.

Mobile Home Park Purchase


Would Enhance Downtown


Bartow's Community Redevelopment
Agency, originally envisioned as a way to
create a small but reliable stream of rev-
enue for the redevelopment and promo-
tional objectives of Downtown Bartow,
Inc., is evolving into a major force for
improvements over a large section of the
community.
Supported by the increased property
taxes that are generated by development
within the CRA district, the agency will
oversee the redesign of Main Street. That
redevelopment is arguably the most dra-
matic change in the Bartow business com-
munity since the natiu, 1 popularity of
shopping centers begai threatening the
viability of downtown business districts
everywhere.
Main Street redevelopment will empha-
size the historic character of the downtown
area, and will make it a pedestrian-friend-
ly destination for diners and shoppers.
Already the monthly Friday Festivals
are drawing ever larger crowds for street
parties in the 100 block of South Central
Avenue. When the Main.Street redesign is
completed later this year, plans are to
expand the Friday Festival parties onto
Main Street, taking advantage of
Downtown's new look and spreading the
promotional opportunities to more Main
Street merchants.
Rivaling the Main Street redevelopment
in long-term impact on the city is the pro-
posal to purchase the S-P Mobile Home
Park, located just west of the county gov-
ernment complex.


This tract of some 13 acres could become
a major factor in anchoring the ever-grow-
ing Polk County government offices in
downtown Bartow.
Assuming the present owner's willing-
ness to sell, the property could be devel-
oped for apartment houses catering large-
ly to county employees. Equally impor-
tant, securing that additional acreage
would help insure the availability of ade-
quate parking for the court house, the
county administration building, and the
sheriff's office operations center.
It won't be cheap; the owner is entitled
to a fair price for the property, and Florida
law guarantees certain protections to
mobile home park residents for one year
before a park can be closed.
Over the long haul if the deal can be
struck acquisition of the land west of the
county government complex can serve the
needs of county government and of the
city of Bartow for decades to come.

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

Quality of Life Issues: Bucket and Fire Districts


Ready for another glimpse into
city government, Bartow style, c.
1901?
This is the third column about
the 1901 Code of Ordinances
book that Mary and I found at
Dad's house.
Thus far we have learned
about the all-powerful post of
Mayor; the multitudinous duties
of the Town Marshal, ranging
from lighting the commission
chambers to inspecting all priv-
ies; and the code's impatience
with vagrants and tramps and
other persons "leading an idle,
immoral or profligate life."
The primary form of public
transit of the day had four legs
and a harness, or multiples of the
same, and "any person in charge
of a horse, mule, steer or team,
who shall permit the same to run
away in this City, or who shall
leave the same unhitched,
whether they run away or not"
was subject to the one-size-fits-all
penal code: a $100 fine or 60 days
in the city prison.
Wheeled vehicles also were
subject to regulation.
"All vehicles in this City, such
as bicycles, tricycles, velocipedes
having rubber or pneumatic tires,
shall carry, at all times, a bell
capable of being heard a distance
of one hundred yards when rung,
and each driver or rider shall ring


such bell when turning a street
corner or passing in either direc-
tion other bicycles, pedestrians or
other vehicles ... nor shall any
person be guilty of scorching
without permission from the
Mayor."
Persons living in upper floors
of buildings were forbidden from
throwing to the street below "any
water or fluid substance, or
heavy body which shall in any
manner endanger or annoy any
person."
Bartow clearly was a town
which prized its peace, though
with a willingness to make excep-
tions.
"Any person who, in the City,
shall fight, except in cases where-
in the same is excusable or justifi-
able under the Laws of Florida,
brawl, quarrel, commit mischief,
or otherwise behave in a disor-
derly manner, or shall aid,
encourage or provoke the same to
be done" faced $100 or 60 days.
The same applied to "any profane
or obscene language," and to
"public indecency" and "intoxi-
cation and drunkenness."
Nor could one "fire off a gun
or pistol, fly or raise a kite, use a
sling shot, or burn any fireworks
or explosive or any kind."
A Sunday "Blue Law" prohib-
ited the operating of businesses
"on the Sabbath day or night,"


with exceptions for "an ice facto-
ry, livery stable, hotel or boarding
house or bicycle exchange."
Druggists were allowed to sell
"medicines, newspapers and
other periodicals" on the
Sabbath, and barber shops could
be open until 10 o'clock in the
morning.
"Whoever lives in an open
state of adultery in said City shall
be punished" by the usual penal-
ty, with an additional almost
creative list of prohibited sexu-
al misconduct that left no ques-
tion as to what the meaning of
"is" is..
Creation of a "Bucket District"
in the heart of downtown Bartow
prescribed the height of the seat
over the bucket (10 inches), the
size of the bucket (18 inches), and
other specifics which are suffi-
cient to make us fully appreciate
today's universally available
indoor plumbing.
On a more upbeat topic, the
code established a "Fire Limit" of
10 blocks, which prohibited any
construction in which "the main
material, including the roof of
said building or structure, is
wood, or other material of an
inflammable nature; but all such
buildings or structures hereafter
constructed within the limits
aforesaid shall be mainly of brick,
rock, iron or other material not of


an inflammable nature."
A mere half page was devoted
to establishment of "a uniform
public school system in this City,
for the education of all youths
residing therein between the ages
of six and twenty-one years." It
dealt primarily with school taxes
and proceeds of lands donated
for the support of schools.
Those residents fortunate
enough to be served by the city
water works were charged an
annual fee on the basis of fixtures,
not consumption.
Hotels paid $4 a year for each
water closet basin. Dwellings "(5
persons in family)" paid $6,
"Bath Tub additional." Water for
construction: $7 per 1,000 bricks;
$20 for each 100 yards of plaster-
ing. Billiard and pool rooms paid
$3 per table.
Operation of the water works
came under the supervision of
the Fire Committee of the City
Council.
The code called for a fire
department of 20 men, who were
paid 25 cents for attending
monthly training drills, 50 cents
for responding to a daytime fire,
and $1 for responding to a night-
time fire ... and who were sub-
ject to fines in the same amount
for missing a drill or fire.
(One more installment
should cover it.)

PCSO Purchasing

Renews Accreditation


Polk County Sheriffs Office
Purchasing Section recently un-
derwent a detailed application
process, which required substan-
tial documentation and a demon-
stration of best practices, to earn
a renewal of its certification
from the National Institute of
Governmental Purchasing's
(NIGP) Outstanding Agency Ac-
creditation Achievement Award.
The original certificate of ac-
creditation was earned in March
2002, helping establish the Sher-
iffs Office as one of three agen-
cies in the state at that time to
have attained six statewide and
national accreditations.
The renewal expires March
2006.
"Many governmental agencies
have attempted to achieve this
Accreditation status only to
realize that their practices fall
short of the required standards
of performance. Clearly the Polk
County Sheriffs Office continues
to lead a very elite group of pur-
chasing organizations that rep-
resent the highest sustained
standards of quality and effi-
ciency in government," a letter


PCSO Seeking Crossing Guards


Polk Cbunty Sheriffs Office
School Crossing Section is in
need of school crossing guards to
work in areas throughout the
county.
Currently the School Crossing
Section includes more than 200
permanent part-time and substi-
tute crossing guards. The pro-
gram was developed in the early
1970s, and there are more than
160 crossings throughout Polk
County.
School crossing guards receive
four hours of state-structured
classroom instruction, with an
additional two hours of on-the-


job training. School crossing
guards receive an additional an-
nual two-hour re-certification
course prior to each new school
year.
The focus of the school cross-
ing guard is to encourage stu-
dents to cross at proper intersec-
tions. Guards also provide infor-
mation regarding pedestrian and
bicycle safety.
For further information re-
garding the School Crossing Sec-
tion, or on becoming a school
crossing guard, call Vera Freeze

Agricultural landowners in
need of financial relief for trees,
bushes, vines, and forest land
damaged by natural disasters
that occurred between Dec. 1,
2003, and Dec. 31, 2004, have a
new option for help through the
USDA's Tree Assistance Pro-
gram (TAP).
Agriculture Secretary Mike
Johanns announced that sign-up
for the USDA's Tree Assistance
Program (TAP) began Feb. 7.
Funding for TAP was author-
ized by the Military Construc-
tion and Emergency Hurricane
Supplemental Appropriations
Act, 2005 (2005 Appropriations
Act), and signed into law by
President Bush last October.
"This legislation," said Jo-
hanns, "provides more than $3
billion in relief to farmers,
ranchers, foresters and other ag-
ricultural producers who suf-
fered damage due to severe
weather in recent years."
TAP is the first of several pro-
grams to be launched in 2005 to
help producers recover from
natural disasters that occurred
in 2003 and 2004.
The sign-up period for Gen-
eral TAP, TAP-Timber, and
TAP-Pecans will end either on
March 18, or 14 calendar days
after the Federal Register Notice
is published.
Approved funding for the TAP
programs includes:
Funding for General TAP
which is available for eligible or-
chardists.
Funding for rehabilitation
and related costs for pecan trees
destroyed or damaged as a result


of tropical storms, hurricanes,
and related events that were lo-
cated in a Presidential-disaster
declared county.
Funding for forest timber
owners for replanting.
Owners of eligible trees,
bushes and vines from which an
annual crop is produced for com-
mercial purposes; eligible forest
land owners who produce crops
of timber for commercial pur-
poses; and eligible pecan produc-
ers may receive assistance under
TAP.
Producers who received pay-
ments under Section 32 of the
Act of August 24, 1935, for 2004.
hurricane losses, or the Florida
Citrus Disaster Program (funded
by the same Act), are ineligible
to receive benefits under the
general TAP and for forest tim-
ber.
However, producers may re-
ceive both Section 32 payments
and TAP payments for pecan re-
habilitation. In addition, produc-
ers are ineligible for both Emer-
gency Conservation Program
and TAP assistance for the same
losses.
Visit or contact a local USDA
Service Center or Farm Service
Agency office for more informa-
tion and/or to sign-up for the
TAP program.
More information on TAP also
is available on USDA's Web site
at: www.usda.gov.

Sports Spotlight

Basketball Breakdown
The Bartow boys basketball played
through a rough season in 2004-2005, and
the end of January proved no different.
The Yellow Jackets faced the Lake Re-
gion Thunder on January 21, in a game
played inside the Bartow High gymna-
sium. Coach McGriff knew his squad
would face a tough battle against the
Thunder, who entered the game ranked
7th in the state in class 5A. The game
started off very close, as the rowdy Bartow
fans added a metaphorical "6th man" on
the court for the Jackets. Bartow, led by
Jeremiah Manning with 15 points, contin-
ued to hold tough even into halftime,
where the Thunder held a two point lead,
22-20. Then,.behind the 3-point shooting
of Jack Murphy and Isaiah Kelley, Bartow
built a 3-point lead, 37-34, midway
through the second half.
"I was disappointed in seeing the boys
lose their lead because I know the time
and effort they put into their practices,"
said Martin Carter.
Lake Region finished the game on a 20-
7 run behind the incredible play of their
reserves. Bartow fell to the 7th-ranked
team in the state, 54-44.
The. next day, BHS ventured north to
Jacksonville for the 1-day, Jacksonville
Jackson Shootout. The Jackets led their
opponents Robert E. Lee High School by
thirteen points. at by halftime, and pro-
ceeded to hold off a late Lee rally to cap-
ture Bartow's 6th win of the year, 55-50.
Isaiah Kelley and Jack Murphy led the
Jackets in scoring with thirteen and eleven
points, respectively.
Although Bartow played extremely well
against in Jacksonville, they could not pro-
long their winning streak versus
Auburndale High School. The Blood-
hounds defeated BHS 68-58 in a game
where two Jackets scored in double-figures
and two more starters had nine points
apiece.
Bartow stands 6-12 at the end of Janu-
ary with one-third of the schedule remain-
ing.
Soccer Summation
Another exceptional winter for the Lady
Jacket soccer team continued into Janu-
ary as the girls sat atop the District stand-
ings heading into the 2005 District Tour-
nament. After winning eight of their nine
District games, BHS avenged their only
blemish, a 3-2 defeat at home against Win-
ter Haven, with a 2-0 victory over the Lady
Blue Devils in their district schedule finale.
Forward Kara Rutenbar had a goal and an
assist, while midfielder Ansley Wales
* added a goal and Forward Nery Saucedo
contributed an assist. Goalkeeper Staci
Fernandez pitched another shutout.
To complete their regular season, non-
district schedule, Bartow traveled to face
three larger schools. After a tight first half
against Lakeland, the floodgates burst
open during the second 40-minutes as se-
niors Nery Saucedo and Kelli Hall com-
bined for four goals, leading Bartow to a
5-1 win. The girls did not have a similar
fate against Lake Gibson, as Staci
Fernandez' goal with 15-minutes remain-
ing could not propel the girls past the Lady
Braves, and BHS fell 2-1.
However, to put a exclamation point on
their season, the Lady Jackets offset a 3-1
defeat at the hands of Lake Region back
in November with a 6-1 win in the regular
season finale. The Lady Jackets stand
at 12-5-1 heading into the District Tour-
nament as the top seed.

Coming up rather short in both games,
Coach Murvin said, "We are healthy now,
and the team has full strength [to defeat
future teams]."
At the Evangel Christian game, the Lady
Jackets honored their three seniors. Los-
ing Ciara Anderson, Par. McCullough, and
Ange Thomason next season, the Lady

hard. Top scorer, Taquelia Bradley made
7 points that night, ending the game in a

Lake Region Thunder during Lake

To end the season, Bartow traveled to
George Jenkins High School. Winning 22-

proved to be impeccable. However, begin-
ningin the third quarter, Jenkins started
to pick up on scoring and defense, ending
with a 46-39 win. Leading scorers Raquel
Jones and Ciara Anderson made fourteen
and eleven points, respectively.

applied for the scholarship online. Over
100,000 people filled out the application
and Conner, Layton, and Suarez became
three of 2,500 semi-finalists.
In the selection process, Abre Conner,
Eric Layton, and Gretchen Suarez must
prepare certain paperwork that includes
questions and essays regarding their high
school career.
"Now that I finished all of the paperwork
I feel very relieved," states Layton.
After receiving the candidates' paper-
work, the Coca-Cola Foundation reviewed
their application, scrutinizing the amount
of community service hours, their aca-
demic success, and recommendations and
essays included in the form.
The Coca-Cola scholarship ranges from
$2,000 to $20,000. If chosen as a finalist,
recipients will receive $4,000. At the
awards banquet, they have the option to
meet with an interviewer who will evalu-
ate them for a $20,000 scholarship.

About the compe-
tition, Layton ex-
pressed, "It is go-

against the best
candidates in the
country for the

think that my

S against will actu-
ally be some of the more difficult candi-
dates to go against."
Layton plans to attend the University of

yet to decide their college. Suarez, accepted

Class of 2006 Shares


Prom Details


by Jessica Metzger
Class of 2006 announced the date and
location of Prom 2005 as April 2, on a
cruise yacht, called "Starship," setting sail
from Channelside in Tampa.
"My officers and I discussed possible ven-
ues," explained Class of 2006 sponsor Ms.
Garvin about the unique location, and
thought a cruise would be an amazing
idea."
The prom committee decided on the
theme of "A Sea of Stars," inspired by the
unique setting.
"The theme was chosen because of the
obvious," commented Ms. Garvin, "[Prom
is] on a boat in the sea, under the stars."
Another addition to the prom experi-
ence-aside from the cruise ship sailing
around on a backdrop of the Tampa Bay-
students may chose which style of musi-
cal ambiance in which to dance the night
away.
The familiar DJs from homecoming will
emcee this event, providing two decks: one
with typical top 40s, techno, and hip hop,
the other with musical selections such as
rock and Latin beat.
"There will be a little something for ev-
eryone," said Ms. Garvin.


Tickets cost $55 per person, including
the food. The cruise's buffet menu will
comprise salad, pasta, roasted pork loin,
grilled chicken, the traditional vegetables,
potatoes, bread, and desert. The drinks will
consist of popular sodas, and two new
drink options: Pina coladas and strawberry
daiquiris.
Ms. Garvin and the BHS administration
would like to remind students of the prom
dress and behavioral codes. Dress code will
be formal and the chaparones will enforce
the normal BHS rules and regulations
aboard the ship. BHS plans to employ sev-
eral police for the event to prevent any in-
cident from getting out of hand.
"It is a night where ladies should act like
ladies and all men should behave like
gentlemen," warned Ms. Garvin. "Security
will be very tight on board so everyone
should abide by BHS rules, as well as all
other State laws. If, in any event, any laws
are broken, the ship will dock immediately
and arrests will be made."
The Class of 2006 hopes to make Prom,
"A Sea of Stars," a memorable night.
"I,think that it will be a beautiful occa-
sion," commented Ms. Garvin, "One that
will be remembered for years."


by Mae Mercado
After experiencing a whirlwind school
year, students easily relate to how fast
twenty years can fly by. Mrs. Cole, a
teacher at BHS, decided to retire early this
year to spend more time with her son in
Springfield, Missouri. Teaching English
classes for juniors and seniors at Bartow
since 1984, Mrs. Cole left an imprint of her
teaching legacy in the hearts of her stu-
dents and colleagues.
Mrs. Hardee, a BHS/IB English teacher,
remembers "How elegant and poised [Mrs.
Cole] always was and whatever she did,
whether in the classroom or the faculty
meeting, she always demonstrated a classy
demeanor." Mrs. Hardee also recalls that
Mrs. Cole "[was] a world traveler. She was
able to share the stories of her trips and
places she saw and link them to literature."
Mrs. Cole, especially known for her wide-


spread knowledge of British literature,
added a wealth of resources to Bartow
High School. Not only did Mrs. Cole prove
to show her expertise in British literature,
but many people such as Senora Laurent
recalled, "She was such a lady. She was
elegant, having a lot of class and pizzazz.
She carried herself like a breeze and looked
great."
Krista Ferrell, a senior at BHS, said
"[Mrs. Cole's] work was hard, and she
made you work for your grade. You actu-
ally learned something."
BHS will miss Mrs. Cole, hoping her re-
tirement not only brings peace and a beau-
tiful close to her career, but a new begin-
ning in Missouri.

Student


Parking Lot


Situation


Poses


Problems
by Jessica Langsdon
Since the completion of the new park-
ing lot, last year's BHS parking crisis
went out the window. Before the new
parking lot, students lacked assigned
spaces, walked through mud to get to
their cars, and due to a severe shortage
of spaces, many students parked at the
nearby Bartow First Assembly.
Now, students have plenty of spaces
available, although all the coveted senior
spaces have been assigned, several spaces
exist in the "boondocks." Another new
feature this year, the DCT/OJT parking
lot, before DCT/OJT students took took
valuable spaces in the main parking lot,
which caused full time students to find
alternative parking spots.
Although BHS has a brand-new park-
ing lot, it still has its kinks. The after-
noon traffic jam sometimes takes ten to
fifteen minutes to clear out. With many
students having afternoon jobs, they be-
come very impatient. Students often drive
over parking curbs, straddle the concrete
and the grass, narrowly missing cars and
students waiting to get out of the lot.
Unaware of the reckless driving in the
parking lot, Mr. Douglas, Bartow's Vice
Principal, believes, "It is very inappropri-
ate and I promise I will check into it as
soon as possible."
Seniors can help out by actually leav-
ing the campus when teachers release
them. Senior privileges allow them to
leave school early, but often seniors stick
around chatting, so when the bell rings
everyone tries to exit the parking lot at
the same time, creating mass chaos.
. The parking lot has two exits, but the
school has closed the west exit due to the
buses. They think cars exiting the park-
ing lot too close to the buses might prove
dangerous; this forces students to use one
exit. The schools administration seriously
doubts any future plans to build another
exit.
For now, students have to do the best
with what they have and be thankful they
no longer have to park in the old muddy
parking lot.

Valentine's


Day: A History
byAshley Archer
Every February, people debate over
whether Valentine's Day, the nationally
deemed "lovers holiday," originates from
Hallmark card aisles or history books.
Valentines Day, as we know it today, ac-
tually contains characteristics of both an-
cient Roman and Christian traditions. The
Catholic church acknowledges three differ-
ent saints named Valentine or Valentinus,
all of them having been persecuted.
One myth says that Valentine was a priest
who served Emperor Claudius II during the
third century in Rome. Claudius decided
that single men made better soldiers then
men with families therefore he banned
marriage for potential solders. Valentine,
realizing the irrationali,,ty of the law, re-
belled against Claudius and married young
lovers in secret. Emperor Claudius ordered
Valentine killed for his disobedience.
Other myths suggest that Valentine died
for attempting to help Christians escape
rugged Roman prisons, where wardens beat
and tortured them to death. Yet another
legend states that Valentine actually wrote
and sent the very first 'Valentine'. Its says
that Valentine, while imprisoned, fell in
love with a young girl. The expression
"from your Valentine," still in use today,
allegedly came from a letter he wrote to her
before dying.
Valentines day has not always consisted
of cards, candies, and flowers but despite
this fact Valentines day has always been a
sacred commemoration of love.

front of everybody about my origins."
A genuine Ecuatoriano, Ricky Schuler,
"enjoyed seeing the way everyone cel-
ebrates their cultures in a unique way
that you can only see by coming to an
event such as International Night."
Andrea Goulet, in attendance as a spec-
tator, "didn't really want to come, [but]
it was really interesting and a lot of fun."
Another onlooker, Graham Foreman,
"had a wonderful evening, [as] the pre-
sentation was more than I expected."
Ankita Patel, a North Indian dancer,
"was looking forward to a night of dances,
music, and of course, food."
If nothing else, food overflowed. The
entrance fee being a covered dish, volun-
teers found themselves kept busy as they
transported, sorted, and set up the
evening's meal.
Senora Salgado credits the Spanish
Club, Senora Laurent, Club officers, ad-
ministrators, and BHS/IB students, "who
helped put together [International Night]
in various ways."
She acknowledged "This program
wouldn't have come together without the


students' willingness to present their heri-
tage, and their readiness to help with their
time after school."
From beginning to end, International
Night seemed a night strewn with stars.
Gretchen Suarez, the Mistress of Ceremo-
nies and representative from Puerto Rico,
showed exceptional talent as she presided
graciously over the night's activities.
Suarez remarked that she, "was disap-
pointed that the Hispanic population didn't
step up." However, with three years of ex-
perience behind her, she encourages[]
people from all cultures to participate."


Poetry Contest continued
her students.
Mrs. Hardee "Always likes to encourage
students who naturally express themselves
through poetry and carry around poetry
journals. This is the contest for them."
As of yet, winners have not been declared.
Once that information becomes readily
available, The Yellow Jacketwill report
those results.


The Internet Addiction


sagging, made popular by AOL and Yahoo.
For convenience, Internet users coined
expressions, like LOL ("laugh out loud")
to quicken their conversations. A new
language emerged from this exchange of
typed words and symbols, and some of it
has even seeped into current dictionar-
ies.
The newest online phenomenon, online
journaling, has swept teenage life aroudn
the world.
"I sometimes wonder how archeologists
* of the future, if that discipline survives
the future, will go about reading the data
on the computers they pull out of the
ground," pondered IB senior Scott
Shelton.
Computers, these ephemeral databases,
serve as many people's entire photo al-
bums and personal diaries, and websites
such as PhotoBucket.com and
LiveJournal.com allow these personal
records to exist online as well. 6,057,219


people have LiveJournal accounts alone,
with millions more keeping online diaries
at sites such as OpenDiary, Xanga, and
DiaryLand.
The online social dynamic differs greatly
from that of "real life." Thoughts, through
public diaries and instant messages, become
edited and re-edited prose, our diction ab-
surd slang, our emotions pixellated symbols,
and our voices colors and fonts.
Sitting in front of a computer, where con-
venience replaces grammar and quickly-
typed words allow no time for rethinking
or inhibition, may harm students more than
it helps. In this simulated and abbreviated
life, habits can become addictions. If you
find it hard to stay away from the Internet
for a few days at a time, receive complaints
about your time spent online, or feel your
personal relationships suffering as a result
of your online social life, consider reducing
your dependency on something as tempo-
rary and virtual as the Internet.


Faculty Focus

With the new school year comes all
kinds of new faces, even in the faculty. One

ment.

Students Partake
by Christopher Philip
The Polk County Council of Teachers
of English's 29th Annual Poetry Awards
2005 offered a valuable opportunity for
students' to strut their literary skills.
English teachers submitted poems con-
sisting of 6-25 lines and short stories 2-6
typed, double-spaced pages long to be
reviewed by grade level.
Both the IB World School and Bartow
High School set up committees to review
entries. These instructors chose three
poems and one short story per grade, per
school.
All poems, and the winning short sto-
ries, will be published in an anthology
that is issued by the Council. An awards
ceremony is held for winners to be an-
nounced and anthology distribution.
Mrs. Hardee, who spearheaded the ef-
fort, wanted "freshness of expression,
creative wording, and an ironic twist-
particularly at the end."
In order to prepare her students for
such a task, Mrs. Hardee put them
through an analytical process, "We first
look at how professional writers handle
their and poetry before we try to emu-
late it or our own style."
Mrs. Smith started the process at the
beginning of the year, "I asked students
for poetry as they made it and turned it
in to me, and ended up with my final se-
lection from there."
Her criteria included uniquenessss,
originalityy, sparkling imagery, [and] in-
dividual styles."
SShe advises students, "Try it. You're


dren yet, but she does have two cats and
a dog.
Mrs. Burkey attended the University of
Florida right out of high school. Unfortu-
nately, she did not complete her degree
there. Instead, she returned in 2003 and
completed her degree in English at the
University of South Florida.
Her 9th and 10th graders have a great
time in her classroom, since they do sev-
eral literature based projects and activi-
ties. Diana Thompson, a student of Mrs.
Burkey thinks that, "She has a great way
of teaching you the material. She goes
through the subject slowly, making sure
everyone understands. She never rushes."
Although Mrs. Burkey has a blast with
her current lasses, she has a background
in the newspaper business, and said she
would not mind helping out the newspa-
per staff with the writing and selling as-
pects of the newspaper.
As for her aspirations for BHS, "I hope
that my love of literature will be conta-
gious to the students that I teach."
Bartow High School hopes she will have
a fantastic first year.

writing for yourself anyway."
Mrs. Smith added a suggestion for im-
proving one's natural writing faculties,
"Read poetry. The more you read the bet-
ter you write."
Mrs. Delk has the experience of previ-
ously having overseen the selection pro-
cess.
For her, "Students must show a knowl-
edge of what poetry is." She also enjoys
"unique views on life, a measure of real-
ity, and stories that get easily to the point."
She views "removing the fear" as the
most important thing a teacher can do for

NHS Takes a Trip Around


the World


IB student Andrea Grossman enjoys herselfatEPCOT.


by Courtney Sela'
National Honor Society planned a trip
to the happiest place in the world, Walt
Disney World. On January 21, 64 NHS
members took a field trip to Epcot. When
asked the reason for the trip Mrs. Hardee
replied, "To provide a cultural awareness
in a fun, interactive manner."
The sponsors, Mrs. Hardee and Mrs.
Holm paid for two chapter busses with the
money earned from the soda machine
found in Mrs. Holm's room. This left the
members responsible for buying their
Epcot ticket for thirty dollars.
The students traveled down the road to
the future in the West and East
Innoventions Building. They explored the
world of tomorrow by walking through a
futuristic house and listening to a presen-
tation about the Segway. The members
then found Nemo and his friends at the
Living Seas Exhibit, swimming around in
fish tanks along with sharks, dolphins,
tuna, and sea horses. Another first-time
experience included a trip through space.
The new, enthralling ride called Mission:
Space allows for park visitors to explore a
out of this world adventure.

mented about the Epcot trip, It was very

Future Business Leaders of America,
FBLA, recently attended the District
Leadership Conference. Students chose
from a variety of tests to take at the Dis-
trict Leadership Conference.
The skills testing took place January 24
and included events such as word process-
ing, desktop publishing, and other com-
puter applications.
The performance event testing occurred
February 1, and included tests in public
and impromptu speaking and entrepre-
neurship. The students reported to the
testing site at the Bartow Civic Center.
February 3, the students reported to
PCC campus at Winter Haven to take
their written tests. The written events
included over forty events such as, busi-
ness law, accounting and business math.
Ankita Patel signed up to take the Busi-
ness Math test. Patel commented that,
"The competition will be tough, but all you
can really do is expect the worst and hope
for the best."
The winners of each event received their
awards on February 3, after the written
tests. Bhakti Kadiwar, a sophomore, rep-
resented Bartow High School as the FBLA
District President and conducted the
awards ceremony. Kadiwar feels "FBLA
is a great experience for those who are
planning to enter into the business and
leadership field."


enjoyable and educational."
Later on in the day, the students im-
mersed themselves into the cultural ex-
perience as they traveled around the
world. NHS members visited countries
like Norway, Mexico, United Kingdom,
Italy, France, the United States of
America, China, and Japan. At China the
students enjoyed the entertainment of
ancient Chinese drummers, who per-
formed a ritual song. Students walked
down the cobble streets of the United
Kingdom enjoying the scenery of antique
shops and cafes.
Michael Smith, a sophomore com-
mented about his cultural experience, "My
favorite part was the Italian food because
it allowed me to have a taste of Italy in
America."
Bhakti Kadiwar agreed with Smith
when she said, "The cultural diversity was
very inspirational and educational."
The students thoroughly enjoyed their
day at Epcot and hope that this may be-
come a tradition that NHS members in
the future will look forward to every year.



Juniors Attend


Conferences


by Jessica Langsdon
Every year, juniors and their parents
attend important meetings with the stu-
dents' guidance counselors.
Junior conferences began January 19
and continue through the middle of Feb-
ruary. Everyjunior meets with his or her
assigned counselor to discuss graduation
requirements, Bright Future Scholarship,
financial aid, college plans, next year's
schedule, and their GPA.
College discussions take up a big por-
tion of the meeting. According to Mrs.
Cavanaugh, a BHS counselor, "About 40%
of juniors have a pretty good idea which
college they would like to attend. As for
the other 60%, their junior conference will
help them narrow the college field down."
Junior conferences also reinforce the im-
portance oftakingthe CPT, ACT, andSAT
as soon as possible. Counselors recom-
mend the presence of parents. Each con-
ference lasts about a half an hour. BHS
junior Andrea Murvin said, "My junior
conference helped me out a lot. My coun-
selor got me caught up with all my cred-
its, grades, and possible scholarships."
Counselors notified students by mail be-
fore Christmas break. On days leading
up to the conference, teachers receive e-;
mails to remind students.
If students do not know the date and
time of their conference, they can make a
quick trip to Student Services and ask
their guidance counselor.


The Motorcycle Diaries
by Brittney Buckley
The face of Chb Guevara, the
Argentinean guerrilla fighter behind the
Cuban Revolution, adorns tee-shirts, jew-
elry, and posters today: a pop icon of re-
belliousness treated ambiguously by his-
tory books and misunderstood by those
who both idolize and despise him.
At 23, Guevara, then known as Ernesto
Guevara de la Serna, embarked on an
eight-month cross-country road trip
through Latin America with his best
friend, 29-year-old biochemist Alberto
Granado. Both men kept diaries now pub-
lished as Diarios de Motocicleta, or The
Motorcycle Diaries. Brazilian director
Walter Salles adapted these personal ac-
counts into a Spanish-language film of the
same name, starring Gael Garcia Bernal
(of YTu Mama Tambien fame) as Ernesto
and Rodrigo De la Serna as Alberto.
The two-hour film transcends the emo-
tional impact of most movies released in
the past decade as it follows the two
friends from the snows of the Andes to the
heat of the Amazon, where they ultimately
arrive to volunteer at the San Pablo leper
colony. Wide camera angles emphasize the
vast and overpowering landscape, while
black-and-white stills of native people rep-
licate the photographs taken by Guevara.
Audience members eventually forget
Guevara's turbulent reputation, drawn
instead into an asthmatic man's evolution
from a sensitive student into a protester
of injustice. Such injustice is rampant in
each country they visit, from exploitative
labor in the mines to famine in the moun-
tains. The suffering they witness inspires
their separate but equally passoinate fu-
tures as violent fighters for political and

Every year on the first Sunday of Febru-
ary, thousands ofAmericans gather around
the television to watch two teams pummel
each other for the NFL Championship tro-
phy. This year, excitement built up many
weeks prior to February 6, 2005, as the
Philadelphia Eagles triumphed over the
Atlanta Falcons. The New England Patri-
ots went head to head with the Pittsburgh
Steelers, defeating them 41-27.
Along with the Patriots and Eagles, the
mayor and city officials of Jacksonville,
Florida prepared for Super Bowl XXXIX.
Jacksonville organized a Friday night con-
cert on February 4, hosted by Josh Gracin
from 'American Idol 2.' Patti LaBelle
hosted a Super Bowl Gospel Celebration
on Saturday, February 4 at the Shiloh Met-
ropolitan Baptist Church. The celebration
reached its peak during "America the
Beautiful," sung by Alicia Keys, who also
performed in the pregame show, "Bridg-
ing Generations" with Gretchen Wilson,
The Black Eyed Peas, and John Forgety.
This year the Ameriquest Mortgage Super
Bowl XXXIX Halftime Show will not com-
pare to any halftime show of the past. As
a result of the revealing incident last year
the National Football League Association
banned MTV Productions to produce an-
other show and they decided to bring
Americans a "memorable halftime show"
with performances by Paul McCartney,
who will appear for the second time at a
Super Bowl Halftime Show. Yet viewers
question the NFL Association's intent,
.."What can be more memorable than last
year's show?"
In honor of the 60th Anniversary of
World War I, the Super Bowl showed their
respect to the veterans with a patriotic
theme. Americans applauded the World
War II veterans as they walked down the


social equality.
The film premiered September 24, 2004,

and showed locally at the Polk Theater in
January. If you enjoy beautiful cinema-
tography or want to stimulate your emo-
tions and political ideals, be first in line to

The Arcade Fire
by Emily Smith
Funeral, the debut album from the Ca-
nadian band The Arcade Fire, baffles crit-
ics with a combination of lyrical brilliance,
remarkable vocals and refreshing musical
diversity.
Unlike many popular records of today,
the album uses a multitude of instruments
including piano, synthesizer, xylophone,
recorders, rickenbacker, organ, accordian,
telecaster, upright bass, cello, horn, harp,
violin, and viola. The typical bass, drums,
and guitar combination falls short of the
substance Funeral contains.
As for the band, native Texans and Ca-
nadians came together, two even married,
in Montreal in August 2003. They decided
upon the name Funeral for the debut when
numerous family members kept passing
away. Ironically, a name bearing such clo-
sure titled the beginning of a new life for
these musicians.
Songs include danceable and soothing
rythms, none skip-worthy. English as well
as French lyrics blend together with male
and female vocals.
Fans of Modest Mouse, Bright Eyes, and
The Unicorns might find The Arcade Fire
appealing, but the disc promises a new
adventure for anyone ready to broaden
their musical horizons.


field. Then the combined voices of the
choirs of the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air
Force Academy, U.S. Military Academy at
West Point, U.S. Coast Guard Academy
and U.S. Army Herald Trumpets awed the
American people with the verses of the
National Anthem.
James Austin, Chris Broadhead, and
Daniel Cook, Bartow High School football
players, believed that Patriots would take
the title of 2005 National Football League
Champions. When asked why, Cook re-
plied, "[The Patriots] are more of a com-
plete team (and) the Eagles are over-
rated." Broadhead agreed with Cook
when he said, "[The Patriots] are a domi-
nating force especially during the playoffs.
They can overpower any team they come
against."
For many, the game ranks as the sec-
ond reason to watch the Super Bowl.
Companies like Pepsi, Budweiser,
McDonalds, Sony Entertainment and
Ford entertain the 144.4 million viewers
during the commercial breaks. This year,
favorite commercials included those by
Budweiser, Ameriquest, and Pepsi.
The teams t6ok the field at 6:30 PM.
Both teams showed their nervousness in
their countless fumbles and interceptions
in the first half. The Eagles and Patriots'
sloppiness resulted in a seven to seven tie.
The Patriots pulled it together in the
locker room and ended the game with a
24 to 21 win. This win made the Patriots
second in a row and overall third time
Super Bowl Champions. Super Bowl
XXXIX MVP player went to Deion
Branch, a talented wide receiver for the
Patriots. The Patriots have become a dy-
nasty and as they left the field on Sun-
day night as Champions they prepared to
uphold their dynasty for the third con-
secutive year.

Alturas Elementary Raises

Money For Shelter Boxes


Parents, students and staff at
Alturas Elementary School have
raised more than $1,800 to send
two Shelter Boxes to displaced
survivors of the recent Indian
Ocean tsunami.
As part of an international
humanitarian project, parents,
students and school staff at Altu-
ras Elementary set a goal to
raise $900 within two weeks to
buy a Shelter Box.
The Shelter Box would' be
sent to South Asia to be used by
survivors devastated; by the tsu-
nami.
On Thursday, Feb. 17, at 10
a.m., Rick Bdrgstrom, district
contact for Shelter Box, will visit
ithe school.
He will bring an actual Shel-
ter Box to display for our 'stu-
dents, parents and staff to look
at and touch.
The standard Shelter Box is a
sealed and banded box that
weighs approximately 110
pounds.
It contains one 49-gallon box
(the Shelter Box), which is the
container for delivery of all the
other materials.
Once delivered, it can serve as
a water tank, table, or food stor-


age bin.
The box also contains a three-
compartment, 10-person tent
with accessories, 10 envelope-
type sleeping bags, 180 water
purification tablets, one five-gal-
lon flat-pack water container,
two 2.1-gallon water carriers,
two sets of basic cooking and eat-
ing utensils, one trenching
shovel, one package of three
flashlights with batteries, spare
batteries, a 164-foot rope, 10
PVC ponchos, 10 plastic bags, a
tool kit, and a multi-fueled cook
stove.
The total cost is $900.
Shelter Box is a nonprofit
grassroots Rotary Club project
which has grown to an interna-
Stional level.
Shelter Boxes are sponsored
by service clubs, schools, church
groups, businesses and individu-
als to provide shelter for disaster
victims.

Older black women who use
herbal medications view them-
selves as healthier than their
counterparts who don't use the
preparations, yet many aren't
clearly informed of the products'
true benefits or their potential
dangers, University of Florida
nursing researchers report in a
issue of "Clinical Nursing Re-
search."
Building on a similar study
they conducted of nearly 90
white women, UF researchers
evaluated patterns of herbal
product use among 57 black
women ages 65 and older who
took them for perceived health
benefits or to manage an exist-
ing medical condition, such as
arthritis, heart problems or back
pain.
The researchers also com-
pared them with older black
women who did not use herbal
medicines and with the older
white women previously studied.
"What we are finding is that a
significant portion of older Afri-
can-American women were mix-
ing prescribed, non-prescribed
medications, and herbal prod-
ucts such as garlic or gluco-
samine, and not discussing this
with their health-care providers,
which may possibly cause ad-
verse health effects," Dr. Saun-
joo Yoon said. "Even if the herb-
als are not dangerous, they may
not be necessary, wasting their
money."
Many were combining as
many as seven herbs, prescrip-
tion drugs and over-the-counter
medicines, a practice that may
threaten to cause physical and
financial harm, the researchers
say.
Scientific studies increasingly
show some herbs alter the way
the body metabolizes other
drugs, triggering symptoms. as
severe as bleeding in the brain
or high blood pressure.
Ultimately, Dr. Yoon said, she
would like to use the study find-
ings to educate health-care pro-
viders about the importance of
obtaining a more complete medi-
cation history for all patients, es-


pecially older ones.
As part of that effort, re-
searchers aim to conduct a
larger study with a larger, ran-
domly obtained sample of older
black women to confirm the find-
ings and to ensure they can be
generalized to the population at
large.
In the current study, UF re-
searchers surveyed the women
about their health status and
use of conventional drugs and
herbal products.
The women were recruited by
verbal announcements at meet-
ings, personal contacts and post-
ers displayed at meal sites, hous-
ing developments, community
senior organizations, health fairs
and churches in North Central
Florida.
A third of the women reported
using at least one herbal prepa-
'ration within the past year; alto-
gether, 33 different herbal prod-
ucts were taken, researchers
found.
The most common herbal
preparations were glucosamine,
garlic or aloe products and
gingko biloba.
Of the herbal products used,
nearly three-quarters were
taken to maintain health or pre-
vent possible health problems.
Most study subjects described
them as somewhat or very effec-
tive.
Nearly half the herbals used
were not discussed with health-
care providers, and most users
were mixing the products with
prescription and over-the-


counter medicines.
UF researchers say because
the U.S. population is aging and
increasingly diverse, it's crucial
to examine habits that contrib-
ute to health disparities among
groups of women.
Although women who took
herbs reported feeling healthier
than study participants who did
not, the practice might hurt
more than help, and not just
physically.
Most women in the study had
a limited income and may have
found it difficult to pay for pre-
scription medicines, much less
for herbal preparations, Dr.
Yoon said.
The findings highlight the
need for older women to talk to
their health-care providers to en-
sure they are not purchasing un-
necessary medications out-of-
pocket, she said.
The researchers also noted
distinct cultural differences be-
tween how black women and
white women receive and inter-
pret their health information,
which has implications for how
the risks and benefits of using
herbal products are best con-
veyed.
"We found that both African-
American and Caucasian women
use herbal products to manage
their health, but African-Ameri-
can women were much more
likely to obtain recommenda-
tions from friends, family and
community members, whereas
Caucasian women were more
likely to read health magazines

and watch health programs to
find out about herbal medica-
tions," Dr. Yoon said.
"This is important because we
find that family and friends are
more trustworthy sources of in-
formation for African-American
women, and can be used as a
conduit of information in their
communities."
Study findings "suggest that
health-care providers specifically
ask older women what they use
to manage their health, clearly
inform them regarding self- and
health-care provider-prescribed
treatments, and realize that all
of their health information does
not come from professional
health care sources," the authors
stated in their paper.
"Dr. Yoon's research illus-
trates that it is imperative for
health-care providers to find a
better screening system for
medications, whether prescribed
or over-the-counter, and improve
communication between the pa-
tient and provider," said Grace
M. Kuo, Pharm.D., an assistant
professor of family and commu-
nity medicine at Baylor College
of Medicine and program direc-
tor of the Southern Primary-care
Urban Research Network. "In
addition, increased cultural com-
petency on the part of health-
care providers can help to pre-
vent health disparities. By learn-
ing about the cultural health
practices of different minority
groups, we can better communi-
cate with all of our patients?

Detectives are seeking infor-
mation in a 1986 homicide in
which the victim was recently
identified.
Polk County Sheriffs Office
homicide detectives identified
the "Jane Doe" victim after re-
ceiving information from Iowa
law enforcement officials about a
possible link to an Iowa missing
person case.
A fingerprint match was used
to identify the woman as Ronett
Lynn Burton (maiden name of
Peterson), formerly of Madrid,
Iowa.
On May 7, 1986, the unidenti-
fied victim's body was discovered
floating in a phosphate pit near
SR33, just north of Combee Road
in Lakeland. Given her recent
identification, PCSO detectives
are actively investigating the
case and are seeking any infor-
mation about the victim and her
whereabouts prior to her mur-
der.
Detectives have received in-
formation that the victim had
traveled through Arkansas, Ten-
nessee, Alabama, Georgia, and
Florida (possibly the Clearwater
area) during the time period
leading up to her death.
A cash reward may be
awarded for information leading


to the arrest or indictment of a
suspect or suspects. Anyone who
has any information about the
victim and wants to remain
anonymous and be eligible for a
cash reward is asked to call Polk
County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-
226-TIPS. Anonymity is guaran-
teed.
Detective Michael Johnston is
in charge of the investigation,
and can be reached at 534-6379.

Williams Brothers Team Up For


Florida Southern OT Buzzer Beater


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Philadelphia nmiht be the city
of brotherly love, but after the
Williamrn brothers performance
on the court Wednesday night at
Jenkins Field House. the whole
Florida Southern campus might
be filled with love for these broth-
ers.
Freshman Braxton Williams
hit two key free throws with 38
seconds left in regulation to send
the game to overtime and his big
brother, Blake Williams, hit a
three-pointer that bounced off the
rim and into the basket as time'
expired to give the Mocs (15-7, 6-
6) a 67-66 victory over the
Sunshine State Conference lead-
ing Knights of Lynn University
(17-5, 8-3).
"I saw there wasn't much time
left, and I saw that (Ellery
Boykin) was open, but I knew
that if I passed it to him he
wouldn't have enough time to get
the shot off," Blake Williams said.
"I just happened to be in the right
place at the right time. It seemed
like forever when the ball when in
and came back out and back
down."
It was a trip down memory
lane for Blake Williams, who as a
senior at Cocoa Beach High
School, hit a runner as time
expired to overcome Eustis. Just
like this time, his brother
Braxton was on the court as well.
The back and forth Mocs
played one of the most tightly
contested games of the. season
against the Knights, with the
lead changing 13 times and each
team scoring 29 in the first half
and 27 in the :second. Blake
Williams three-pointer was the
difference in the overtime where
the Moi-c; edged out the Knights 9-
10.
"We just have so many set
backs and we haven't been able to
handle it real well and hopefully
this win will change all that,"
Blake Williams scored nine
points on three three-pointers, a
welcome burst after averaging 2.2


points over the last 15 games.
Brother Braxton had 12 points of
his own and lead the team in
offensive boards with four.
"The law firm of Williams and
Williams both really played well
tonight," joked Longa.
Longa, who' started Blake
Williams on a "hunch" said he
didn't think starting him had
anything to do with the final shot,
but said he really played with
confidence all night.
While the Williams brothers
saved the day, it was senior guard
Boykin who carried the team.
Boykin lead the Mocs with 21
points, including two old fash-
ioned three-point plays and
shooting 9-16 from the floor.
Boykin also got hot early, scoring
11 of FSC's first 16 points.
"(Boykin) really carried us
early," Longa. "He's got to, he's a
senior."
Another senior, Kenny
Ebanyat, once again led the team
in rebounds with nine. So far this
season, Ebanyat is jsut one of two
players in all of Division II that
has lead his team in rebounding
in every game. He currently has
218 on the season and is leading
the SSC in rebounds per game.
After a tight first half, the
Mocs stumbled out of the gate in
the second, allowing Lynn to go a
10-0 run and seize the momen-
tum.
"We- had to take time out and
get ourselves back under control
we got a little shell shocked," said
Longa.
The Mocs got the game back
under control, but still had an
eight-point deficit to contend
with. Florida Southern nipped
away, getting to within one twice
until Braxton Williams hit a
three-pointer with 1:46 left to
play to give the Mocs a one point,
lead.
Lynn's James Cage answered
with a three-pointer of his own
before Braxton Williams free
throws sent the game into OT.
Longa said this was a crucial
victory for the Mocs who have
been struggling to find consisten-
cy. The win over SSC leading


Lynn comes just days after falling '- ,
to the second worst team in the
conference, Florida Tech.
Up next, the Mocs will host
Barry University at 5:30 p.m. on
Saturday'in a crucial game to sep-
arate themselves from the cur-
rently congested middle of the
SSC standings, as well as finally DON'T TRY THIS AT HO

Cross Country Team Runs 24
Hours Straight in Fundraiser


By SAMANTHA BRABANT
BHS Sports Correspondent
For 24 straight hours, they
ran.
On Friday, Jan. 21, the Bartow
High School cross country team
held its annual 24 hour relay. The
relay is used as a fund raiser for
the cross country team to earn
money for meets, uniforms, and
the end of the season banquet.
The relay started at noon on
Friday and ended at noon on
Saturday. It's not so much of a
relay, rather participants run
laps around the track at an indi-
vidual pace to see how many they
can do.


Liz Saari completed the most
laps of all female participants
with a total of 110, equaling 27
miles.
Jonathan Bobbins had the
most for the males with 120, for a
total of 30 miles.
All' participants received a
shirt in the color of their relay
team. There were a total of eight
teams and about 30 participators.
The cross country team raised
$640 with this fund raiser.
Senior Genevieve Russo, who
has been organizing this event for
the past three years, said the
event was a success.
"We made lots of money and
had fun doing so," Russo said.

Un derestimating

Ourselves

Occasionally, we may be faced with a task we feel
is impossible for us to perform. We may believe that
we do not have enough time or skill to handle the job,
and in such situations, we are usually defeated
before we even try. However, we should keep in mind
that it is performing life's difficult tasks that realljr
help to make us grow. Although most of us have nec-
essary simple tasks to.perform, we usually learn very
little or nothing at all by doing them. It is only when
we are challenged with a job that takes all of our
ability, either mentally or physically, that we become
a stronger and more effective person. Always under-
estimating ourselves, and having the mindset of not
ever trying to perform difficult tasks combine, often
unwittingly, to form a negative attitude that will only
help to defeat our character. The personal success
that we attain from performing and/or completing
tasks that truly challenge us will be reflected in our
greater enjoyment of life. In fact, we may surprise
ourselves by learning that our ability is indeed up to
the challenge of performing these so-called impossi-
ble jobs, and when we perform well, we are doing
exactly what our Heavenly Father expects of us: to
be the best that we can be.

Feb. 21st, President's Day, is a
national holiday to honor both
George Washington and Abraham
Lincoln, but many will still
remember these February presi-
dents on the dates they were
born: Washington on the 22nd
and Lincoln on the 12th.
Abraham Lincoln was a man of
many firsts. He was the first
president to be elected without
being a native of one of the 13
original colonies. He was the first
president to have a beard, to be a
Republican, to hold a patent (No.
6469; a device that lifted ships
over dangerous shoals through
the use of buoyant air chambers),
to be photographed at his inaugu-
ration and, sadly, to be assassi-
nated.
Lincoln was 6'4" tall, weighed
180 pounds, had black hair and
gray eyes. He wore a size 7-1/2
hat and 12-B boots.
Evidently he and his family
loved pets, outdoing both the
Bushes and Clintons. The
Lincolns had a cat named Bob, a
dog named Jib, and a pet turkey
named Jack.
At the age of nine, Lincoln
made a promise to his dying
mother that affected him
throughout his life.
"I want you to live as I have
taught you, to love your Heavenly
Father and keep His command-
ments," she had said.
And during Lincoln's long hard
road from poverty to the presi-
dency, he never forgot those
words nor his promise.
Writing in "The Man and His
Faith," G. Frederick Owen said of
Lincoln: "God to him was not the
God of the philosophers, but the
God of Nancy Hanks Lincoln and
of the Bible. Religion to him was
not a philosophy which he was to
formulate, but a personal experi-
ence into which he was to enter."
Lincoln's childhood covenant
with his mother kept him out of
trouble in later years and had a
powerful positive impact on his
character. Many a time, he said,
he had found the courage to
decline'some,tempting. bribe or
resist some .compromise because
at the moment of decision, he
would remember his mother
quoting Exodus 20:1-2: "I am. the
Lord thy God; thou shalt have no

adding: "Take all of this book
upon reason that you can, and the
balance by faith, and you will live
and die a better man."
In spite of his high standards,
his honesty, his Bible reading,
and other religious activities,
however, Lincoln seemed to be
ever on a search for a relationship
with God that he had not yet
found. This search for peace sent
him into the counseling room at
The First Presbyterian Church in
Springfield, Ill., during revival
meetings and to the parsonage of
The First Methodist Church to
talk to Pastor Jacquess after his
sermon on being born again.
It moved him to seek help from
the woman of faith who had been
the nurse on duty when his son,
Willie, died. Still he was not sat-
isfied.
Then came Gettysburg, and
Lincoln's entire night of prayer
before that bloody battle began -
an experience that prepared him
for what happened later.
According to this praying pres-
ident, seeing the graves of the sol-
diers who fell at Gettysburg
moved him to absolute faith in
his mother's Lord.
No wonder the brief, but pow-
erful, "Gettysburg Address," has
endured. It was delivered by a
man who tearfully told his
friends that he had now received
"the best gift which God has given
to man."

I Musings From God's Penman I


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

Often a store has a sign with
the warning; "You Break It, You
Bought It."
This is to keep people from
carelessly handling the mer-
chandise.
I'm thinking of another sign
which should be posted all
through my house: "If It's Bro-
ken, I Bought It."
This is not to say everything
in my house is broken, but to
point out that everything has a
breaking point. And, it's not to
say I can't fix anything I just
can't fix anything that is broken.
A case in point: my easy chair.
A man's easy chair, especially
mine, is control central of his
world. My easy chair is so situ-
ated I can easily access my en-
tire world.
Whoever invented the easy
chair must have been a genius,
at least in my book.
To the left of my easy chair is
a small stand with a light. On'
this stand rest various works in
progress.. I will admit some are
in slow progress, but that's the
way I like it. .I can reach into
this pile, pull out some work,
and spend little time on it.
-Also on .this stand is a well-
stocked container of pens and
pencils.
Someone in our house, and I
will not mention any names, has
suggested getting rid of this pile.
There are times, and this is one
of them,.I do not pay attention to
certain suggestions.
To the right of my easy chair
are various .items. I have the
Telephone, the remote-control,
and a variety of reference books,
all within easy reach.
:'At the oot,'-of my easy chair
piqns ae s::small notebook com-
puter. .
SAs yo. can:see, my.easy chair
pulls mV world together in a har-
mony of delightful reach-ability.
Recently, a situation devel-
oped. with my easy chair. Last
week as I sat in my easy chair
working on my computer, catch-
ing up with some work projects,
I heard a fdinny sound;.
B-O-I-N-G!
I could not place the sound, so
I ignored it. It's the manly thing
to do.
Whenever something happens
I don't understand, I resort to


the old ignoring routine. Some-
times it's the only thing that
really works.
Then I heard the sound again.
B-O-I-N-G!
This time the sound was
much louder, but before I could
really do anything about it, I
heard the sound for the third
time.
B-O-I-N-G!
Suddenly, my easy chair quiv-
ered. Then everything collapsed,
and as I went free-falling, my
whole life passed before my eyes.
Fortunately, as it turned out,
it was not my life, but every-
thing on my stand flipped in the
air and came showering down on
top of me papers, books, the
remote control, and millions of
pens and pencils smothering me
in a heap of confusion.
For a brief moment, I did not
know what happened or where I
was.
The only redeeming aspect of
this incident was the simple fact
that the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage was not home at the
time. I say "simple fact," but the
truth of the matter is it is much
more complicated.
My first job was to extradite
myself from the mess. Secondly,
I had to pick up everything be-
fore my wife got home.
As it turned out, that was the
easier part of my job. The most
difficult, and I admit it, was try-
ing to fix my easy chair. It
turned out to be broken in places
that completely and absolutely
confounded me.
Several months before this,
my wife insisted I throw out this
antiquated easy chair and get a
new one. Looking back now, I see
it was a foolish thing to do, but
then I laughed at her and told
her in no uncertain terms that
this easy chair was in perfect
condition.
She just looked at me, shook
her head, and walked away.
With panic as incentive, I
gathered up the pieces of what
used to be my easy chair and
tried to figure how to put it all
back together. I went to the ga-
rage, got some tools, a roll of
wire, and several rolls of duct
tape.
Working at the speed of a hus-
band in trouble, I managed to
put the chair back in what I
thought was good shape.


Sighing a sigh of relief, I care-
fully tested out the chair. Much
to my pleasure and delight, it
cradled me as aforetime.
Leaning back in my chair, I
could not believe I had pulled
one over on my Better Half.
Nothing matches an easy chair
properly broken in.
Later that evening, my wife
and I were sitting together
watching television. Out of the
blue, she brought up the subject
of my chair.
"Don't you think," she re-
flected in one of those wifely
moods, "you should replace that
old chair of yours?"
"Ha!" I said with the confi-
dence of a fox that got away with
a plump chicken. "This chair has
a few more good years left in it."
Just then I heard a familiar
sound.
B-O-I-N-G!
Everything collapsed, and as I
went free-falling, my whole life
passed before my eyes.
Looking up into the smiling
eyes of my wife, she simply said,
"My, how time flies."'
The whole incident reminded
me of a verse in the Bible.
"Wherefore let him that thinketh
he standeth take heed lest 'he
fall. There hath no temptation
taken you but such as is common
to man: but God is faithful, who
will not suffer you to be tempted
above that.ye are able; but will
with the temptation also make a
way to escape, that ye may be
able to bear it." (1 Corinthians
10:12-13 KJV)

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.
