Annual Gause Writes! Breakfast

Marked by New Face, Program


? By RUSTIN DWYER
Stiaf Writer

To help Gause Academy stu-
dents prepare for the writing por-
tion of FCAT testing, the school
holds the annual "Gause Writes!"
breakfast to-make sure students
aren't testing with grumbling
tummies. .
This year, a new face was in
the center of the event, in a posi-
tion that has recently been
expanded. The new additions
have the administration at
Gause very excited.
Newly transferred culinary
arts teacher Steve DiLorenzo
comes from Traviss Technical
Center where he taught culinary
arts after getting out of the
restaurant business. Folks from
Winter Haven might recognize
his name, as he was the owner of
Mama DiLos iln that city for close
to two decades.
"He's fantastic," said Gause
Principal Bob Grocki. "He relates
well to the students and creates
excitement for theprogram."
"He has phenomenal exper-
tise," said Assistant Principal Joe
Viscusi, an admitted fan of
Mama DiLos during its exis-
tence.
He comes to Gause in hopes of
expanding the culinary arts pro-
gram to cover all forms of hospi-
tality, from food prep to hotel
management.
"I feel very comfortable that
within a year's time I can bring a
real strong- program here at
Gause."
After less than a month at
Gause, DiLorenzo was thrust
into cooking for the annual
breakfast event, a responsibility
he said he gladly accepted.
He wasn't without help,
though. Parental volunteers
Brucie Varnum and Robin
Lurtsema leed a hand serving"
up the food, despite the fact that
neither had a child who was tak-
ing the FCAT that day. Mrs.
Lurtsema said she was
approached by Gause reading
teacher Kathy Disney about
helping out and jumped at the
opportunity.
She also was able to enlist the
help of Mrs. Varnum because the
two are neighbors and also
because "she loves me," joked
Mrs. Lurtsema.


The two women took the reins
of the annual breakfast, but
because there was no paper trail
from last year's event, Mrs.
Varnum said at first they didn't
know what to do, so they just
called every business they could
think of.
The results spoke for them-
selves. Through their efforts,
businesses from as far away as
Tampa and Winter Haven donat-
ed food and money.
They received muffins froin
Cracker Barrel in Tampa, money
from M and J Piping, milk from


Velda Farms in Winter Haven,
orange juice from Florida Citrus,
eggs from Mike's Restaurant,
cookies from Perkin's, bread from
Country Hearth and other per-
sonal donations.
Volunteering wasn't limited to
parents, though. Gause seniors
Carlos Ojeda and Jacob
Sondregger helped serve the stu-
dents and prepare the dining
room. While neither of them
attended Gause when they took
the writing portion of the FCAT,
they both passed, and yes, both
ate breakfast beforehand.


SCHECKING OUT THE SCENE, Gause Academy's newest addi-
tion, Steve DiLorenzo, cooks up some breakfast during the Gause
Writes! breakfast. DiLorenzo transferred from Traviss Technical
Center and will be a part of an expanded culinary arts program at
Gause that will cover food prep, hotel management and other areas of
hospitality. (Staff photos by Rustin Dwyer)


Comcast To Offer Cable Modem Service


Within a week or so, Comcast
Cable will be able to offer high
speed Internet cable modem con-
nections, and later this year, the
company will re-evaluate the
number of channels it offers in its
basic service package, a Comcast
executive told Bartow city com-
missioners.
Rod Dagenias, Comcast vice-


president, keeping a commitment
he made a month earlier, returned
to Monday night's city commis-
sion meeting to give an update
on the level of service his compa-
ny provides in Bartow. A month
ago, he appeared before the com-
mission in response to a commis-
sioner's report on complaints he
had received about Comcast's ser-


vice.
At that meeting, Dagenias
blamed problems in cable recep-
tion quality on the hurricanes
and on damage caused when a
plane crashed into a cable TV
tower.
Monday night, Dagenias said

In fast-moving action. that
stood out in marked contrast to
previous lengthy debates, Bartow
city commissioners voted unarii-
mously on Monday night to
approve the tentative plat of the
Silver Companies planned 550-
acre "active adult" residential
development on U.S. Highway 98
at the north entrance to Bartow.
The community is projected to
have 1,796 dwelling units.
Determined to avoid another
long discussion of the merits of
the project, which would provide
1,318 single family homes and a
20-acre apartment complex,
Mayor Leo Longworth
announced that the developer
and opponents to the plan each
would be given five minutes to
restate their positions.
He said that when the final
plat is submitted for approval, a
public hearing will be held.
John Haas of Tampa, land
planner for the development,
said the community will offer "a
recreation-filled lifestyle" for res-
idents age 55 and older.
There will be two access points
from Highway 98 to the age-
restricted homes, and another
entrance for the apartments,
which will not be restricted to
people 55 and older.
Silver Companies has
reserved right-of-way at both the
northern and southern end of the
property from crossover roads
linking Highway 98 and E.F.
Griffin Road, Haas said.
More than 200 acres of "green
space" will be preserved, he said,
and there will be extensive
buffering between the develop-
ment and the highways on either
side of it.
Responding for opponents,
Brent Geohagan, attorney for
John and Terry Frost, renewed
his charges that the housing den-
sity is too high, that the develop-
ment is incompatible with the
neighborhood, and that the pro-
ject would create "urban sprawl."
But his primary argument


The city of Bartow has a pool
of applications from citizens who
want to serve on its various advi-
sory boards, but the Mayor's
Youth Council is not one of them.
The council was created sever-
al years ago as a vehicle for mak-
ing the interests and concerns of
local teenagers known to the city
commission. Membership is lim-
ited to high school students.
Almost from the beginning,
Bartow High School officials, at
the request of city commission-
ers, have talked up the program,
encouraging youngsters to apply
for membership. Sometimes the
application deadline has been
extended to give students more
time to apply.
This year, there are not
enough applicants to fill the
board, and Mayor Leo Longworth
suggested that if more applica-
tions aren't received by the com
mission's Feb. 21 meeting, com-
missioners should consider if the
council is worth keeping. Other
commissioners nodded their
agreement.
By contrast, there is wider
interest in serving on the
Community Redevelopment
Agency, and commissioners
instructed City Clerk Linda
Culpepper to advertise an
upcoming vacancy.
William W. Orr, who has
served on the CRA since it was
established in 1990, has
informed the city that he will not
accept another term.
The commission's usual prac-
tice when a board member's termp
expires is to designate a commis-


was that the city should require
the developer to grant a road
right-of-way across the northern
section of the development,
bisecting the property, as
requested by the Transportation
Planning Organization.
The TPO is planning to close
Finger Lane, which connects E.F.
Griffin Road with County Road
540-A, and wants the city to
secure an east-west route across
Silver Company property to pro-
vide access from E.F. Griffin
Road to Highway 98.
Geohagan quoted TPO esti-
mates that building that road
would cost $1.2 million, while
building a road across the south-
ern end of the development
would cost $4.2 million. He also
said that Nelle Kennedy Stuart
Terry, who owns property
between the southern end of the
Silver development and Highway
98, objects to having a road built


across her land.
He urged the commission to
disapprove the plat, calling the
development "contrary to the
interests of the citizens of
Bartow."
Without discussion, commis-
sioners approved the preliminary
plat by unanimous vote.
But in the work session that
preceded the commission meet-
ing, Commissioner Andy Laurent
did urge his colleagues to require
future developments "to have a
little open space.
"What we've approved in the
last three projects (fronting on
E.F. Griffin Road) is to put in as
many homes as possible," he
said.
"I think that's a point well
taken," Commissioner Pat Huff
said, but added: "This is the way
things are going all over the
country. People don't want a lot of
yard to take care of."


Planning Dir. Robert.Wiegers
said that the Silver Companies
development sets aside 30 per-
cent of the acreage for open
space, including a number of
plastic-lined ponds.
Huff asked how the city could
encourage more 100-foot wide
lots. City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said the commission controls lot
widths in its zoning code.
"Lots mean money" to the
developer, Wiegers said. The
investment in streets, water and
sewer lines, and other infrastruc-
ture remains the same, regard-
less of the size of building lots.
Wiegers noted that the com-
mission increased the minimum
home sizes in a code amendment
a few months ago, and suggested
that house size is more important
than lot size as a factor in quali-
ty housing.


W.A. Read, Jr., Enters Seat 4 Race;

Longworth Unopposed for New Term


W.A. Read, Jr., Bartow busi-
nessman who vociferously
opposed the city's newly-revised
historic architecture preserva-
tion rules, filed his candidacy for
Seat 4 on the Bartow city com-
mission Friday afternoon, 21
minutes before the qualifying
period closed.
Read is a land surveyor and
engineer, and owns W.A. Read,
Jr., and Associates, 510 South
Central Ave. He lives at 760 East
Wabash St.
In criticizing the extensive
rules and illustrations in the new
regulations, which are geared to
protecting historically-significant
architecture within designated
historic districts, Read said he
planned "to secede."
Read is the fourth candidate to
file for the seat currently held by
Commissioner Cal Adams, who is
seeking election to a third term.
Adams, a retired building con-
tractor, holds Seat 4 on the com-


mission, one of the two "at large"
positions.
Other candidates for Seat 4
are Gerald Cochran of 1615 East
North St., and Brian Hinton of
2310 South Kissingen Ave.
Cochran, a retiree, has attend-
ed commission meetings for
years, and is a frequent critic of
the city commission and city
management. He has run for
commission a number of times,
but has never won.
Hinton is making his first bid
for election to the commission.
He is president of Bartow
Consulting Group, Inc., and exec-
utive director of Bartow
Community Health Care
Foundation, Inc.
When the qualifying period
closed at 5 o'clock Friday after-
noon, Commissioner Leo
Longworth was unopposed in his
candidacy for a fourth term, and
will be automatically re-elected
on April 5.


Longworth, of 1395 East
Magnolia St., is serving as mayor
this year. He is a State Farm
Insurance agent, and holds Seat
5, which represents the east elec-
tion 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
all races for city commission.
Voters last year approved a
charter change proposed by the
commission which eliminates
run-offs in city elections when no
candidate gets a majority of the
votes in the first round of ballot-
ing.
With four candidates seeking
Seat 4, it is possible that the win-
ning candidate could receive sig-
nificantly fewer than half of the
votes.

Roy Holland Gallemore,


Career Navy Officer, Dies


Retired U1.S. Navy Captain
Roy Holland Gallemore, 84, died
at his home at 915 Kissengen
Ave. this morning, Monday, Feb.
14, 2005, after a long battle with
anemia.
A long time Bartow resident,
he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii,
on Jan. 16, 1921, while his par-
ents (then) Lieutenant and Mrs.
Roy T. Gallemore were stationed
in what was then a United States
Territory. Both of his grandfa-
thers, B.F. Holland and J.G.
Gallemore, were Bartow pio-
neers, arriving during the latter
half of the 1800s.
Upon his father's retirement
from the Navy in 1924, the fami-
ly returned to Bartow and liked
at 590 East Stanford St., which
had once been the home of
Captain Gallemore's late uncle,
U.S. Sen. Spessard L. Holland.
The Gallemore family owned
and operated The Polk County
Record in Bartow, which was
purchased by The Polk County
Democrat-in 1946.
Captain Gallemore retired
after a 33-year career as an Navy
officer.


He returned to Bartow in 1972
to head up the Naval ROTC unit
at Auburndale High School. He
served 10 years as a Florida
parole and probation officer in
Bartow.
In retirement, he was a volun-
teer operator of the Bartow
Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber,
treasurer of the First United
Methodist Church, a member of
the Bartow Kiwanis Club, and a
community volunteer.
A member of a thoroughly
Navy family, he attended Bartow
schools and the Marion
(Alabama) Military Institute
before entering the United States
Naval Academy on June 21,
1939.
He was commissioned an
ensigr on June 19, 1942, when he
graduated with the Class of 1943
(which was accelerated a year
because of World War II). He fol-
lowed in the footsteps of his
father, Capt. Roy T. Gallemore of
Bartow, who also spent his career
as a 4J~marine officer. His broth-
er and his wil@ brother -also
were submarine officers.
Gallemore served as gunnery


officer on the USS Cony in the
Southwest Pacific, and partici-
pated in the Solomon Islands
campaign. As a lieutenant, junior
grade, he served as a gunnery
officer on the USS Sea Poacher


during
patrols.

most of the damage throughout
the 85 acres occurred at the tree
tops, or the camp's canopy.

Acoustic Eidolon will bring its
special brand of music to His-
toric Bok Sanctuary's Pinewood
Estate Feb. 27 at 4:30 p.m.
The musical duo of Joe Scott
and Hannah Alkire blends folk,
bluegrass, rock and classical tra-
ditions.
They performed in 2004 at the
Kennedy Center, Millennium
Stage, Washington, D.C., as well
as recently at Florida State Uni-
versity's "Seven Days of Opening
Nights." They have released
their fifth album, "Live to
Dance," and filmed a PAX TV
"Joy of Christmas" special at
Pinewood Estate.
Performers Scott and Alkire
offer a "new acoustic" sound
blending Celtic, folk and classi-
cal genres.
Their music has been de-
scribed as "pure musical poetry."
The revolutionary instrument
used is called the guitjo (pro-
nounced git-jo) and is custom
built by luthiers Rich Mermer of
Sebastian and Denny Stevens of
Oregon.
The double neck instrument
with 14 strings gives an "incredi-
ble" tonal range that is impossi-
ble with a traditional guitar.
The range, along with Scott's


harmonies and open tunings, al-
lows the duo to discover new
sounds.
Alkire's classical training on
cello was enhanced by studying
with G. Magyara of the Hungar-
ian String Quartet.
In 2004, she was invited to
perform at Westminster Abbey's
Easter program. She also has
performed with Symphony Or-
chestras and Festivals, including
the Boulder Bach Festival.
Seating is limited and reser-
vations are required. A reception
will follow the concert.
Tickets cost $19 for nonmem-

Putnam's Bill Would


Improve Accountability


Congressman Adam Putnam introduced
legislation last week that comes under the
heading: "Why didn't anybody think of
this before?"
His bill, the Head Start Accountability
Act of 2005, is intended to "ensure greater
accountability for Head Start agencies so
that they remain competitive, responsive
and compliant with federal law."
Head Start is a widely acclaimed pro-
gram designed to insure td itt 3-and-4-year-
old children from low income families are
prepared for kindergarten. A child's earli-
est years in the educational process are the
most important in terms of continued suc-
cess in school, which generally translates
into success in life.
It is the very importance of the program
that makes regular, meaningful oversight
important, not only to insure that $6.8 bil-
lion in federal tax funds are being spent
properly, but that youngsters are being
served well.
It is not difficult to imagine that
Putnam's interest was sparked at least in
part by well-publicized controversies sur-
rounding the Polk County Opportunity
Council, which gets $10 million to operate
the Head Start program in Polk. Putnam
has asked the federal government to make
an inquiry into no-bid purchases made by
the agency.
PCOC also has come under criticism for
refusing to seat David Hallock, the
appointee named by the Bartow city com-
mission to serve on the agency's 15-mem-
ber board of directors. Hallock has pub-
licly questioned how effectively the
agency is operating Head Start.
Putnam's bill, however, does not single
out PCOC. It would apply to all of the
nearly 1,700 agencies across the country
that operate Head Start programs.
"Currently, Head Start grantees who
have a history of misuse and abuse, uneth-


ical use of funds, or known noncompliance
with federal law are still eligible for feder-
al funding and are given preference for
redesignation of grants" for Head Start
funds, Putnam said.
His bill would require stronger over-
sight of Head Start programs, and would
require that competition be conducted for
Head Start funding every five years, even
when present operators are doing a good
job. Agencies that are doing a good job
would be given priority in this "recompe-
tition" process.
Each agency would be required to have
an audit made by a CPA within 60 days of
the end of its fiscal year. No accounting
firm could be used for more .than two con-
secutive years.
Putnam's bill also would require that
agency boards "function autonomously
from agency staff, and be knowledgeable
of general concepts of accounting, law and
business management."
Agencies that are properly managing
Head Start funds and operating quality
programs have nothing to fear from
Putnam's bill; those that aren't, do, and
that's the whole point.
The Head Start Accountability Act of
2005 deserves passage by the Congress.

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

Too Many Ballots? A Simple Solution


Here's a final peek at the con-
tents of the 1901 Bartow Code of
Ordinances book that Mary and I
found at Dad's house a couple of
weeks ago.
In 91 pages plus a one-page
index, the code prescribes pun-
ishment for offenses ranging
from adultery to dumping stuff
on, people's heads from a second
story window. The same penalty
- $100 fine or 60 days in the "city
prison" was prescribed for all
offenses. An all-powerful mayor
who sat as Judge of the Police
Court meted out justice.
The charter mandated a peace-
ful city, in which vagrancy, kite
flying, and leaving dead bodies
on the streets and sidewalks were
forbidden.
Occupational license fees
made clear the moral pecking
order of various forms of com-
merce.
Small merchants paid $1 a


year; "sewing machine, lightning
rod, building and loan and insur-
ance agents" paid $5; hotels and
boarding houses with accommo-
dations for 25 to 50 lodgers paid
$7.50; pool halls paid $12.50 per
table.... or $5 per table "if not
connected with a barroom or its
proprietors."
"All circuses or shows giving
performances under tents in this
City, with or without horses,"
were assessed a license fee of
$100 per performance, while
"theatrical shows or minstrel
troupes, or other traveling exhibi-
tions" paid but $2.50 per perfor-
mance. However, shows "in
which females are employed as
waiters" paid $20.
A license fee of $250 was
charged for "any itinerant vendor
,of any drug, ointment or appli-
ance of any kind, intended for the
treatment of any disease, or
injury, or deformity, by any drug,


nostrum or manipulation, or
other expedient."
Sale of "pistols, Springfield
rifles, repeating rifles, bowie
knives or dirk knives" to minors
was prohibited.
The code was not without
compassion.
"All cripples, and other parties
incapable of manual labor, shall
be allowed to peddle, using only
their own capital, in this City;
Provided, that newsboys shall be
allowed to sell newspapers and
periodicals without having to
'pay license tax for the same;
Provided, that this exemption
shall not apply to dealers in spir-
ituous, vinous or malt liquors."
The code established a City
Market "in the lower floor of the
brick building situated on the
-South half of Lot 2, Block 2, of
Summerlin School Lands
Addition to the City of Bartow."
That apparently was the only


16


location in which fresh meat and
fish could be sold.
"No horses, mules, hogs,
goats, belled cattle, nor cattle that
are habitual fence-breakers, or
pilferers from wagons or places
of business in this City, shall be
allowed to run at large on the
streets or thoroughfares of this
City," and even well-behaved
livestock had to be off the streets
by an hour after sunset.
The code specified the expedi-
ent fashion in which irregularities
in city elections were to be han-
dled.
"The ballots shall first be
counted, and, if they exceed the
number of names contained in
the Clerk's list, they shall be
replaced in the box, and one of
the Inspectors shall draw out and
destroy, without opening, as
many ballots as there are in
excess of names."

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Fun With Plumbing II


Last week I wrote an article
about the kitchen faucet coming
loose from its moorings and
spraying the kitchen and every-
one within spraying distance.
This reminded me of all the
things that can go wrong with
plumbing, because I had another
bad plumbing day yesterday. I
took a nice, leisurely shower with
the new shower head I had
installed last week. It sprays with
a fine, mist, heavy or medium
sprays, and is really great for
washing hair.
I turned off the water, opened
the shower door, and saw that the
toilet was filled right to the rim
with shampoo suds. I had never
had that happen before. It sat
there and gurgled and looked like
the shampoo that contained Yak
Butter. I don't know what Yak
Butter is, but it is obviously an
interesting product and it was on
sale at the drugstore. It was sup-
posed to make my hair shiny,
easy to manage and eliminate


split ends.
I got the can of Drain Buster
out of the hall closet and poured
about half of the can into the toi-
let. I then put on my reading
glasses and read the fine print in
red letters on the back of the can.
It said, "Use in drains, sinks,
and slow running appliances,
BUT DO NOT USE IN TOILETS!"
I thought it over and didn't know,
what a slow running appliance
could be except a toilet. I forget
what it was supposed to do if you
put it in a toilet, but it was
already too late for that.
I then got out my Plumbing for
Beginners book that I bought
about 10 years ago and turned to


Toilets, Stopped Up. It said I
would need a plunger, a snake, a
coat hanger and a plastic bag. I
knew what a plunger was, but a
snake?
First, I was supposed to rapid-
ly plunge the plunger up and
down 10 times. This sure made a
lot more Yak Butter suds. I went
down in the basement and
banged on some large pip! \\ ith
a broom handle. That didn'thelp.
Back upstairs, I ran .some
water in the sink to sort of lead
the water out of the toilet.
Nothing. I went to the grocery
store to ask for a snake.
They didn't know what a
snake would do, either. They


thought I wanted to eat it.
The book told me that if the
water didn't go down, to get a
wire coat hanger and run it
through the toilet drain to dis-
lodge whatever was stopping it
up. That didn't work, either. I
ignored the suggestion that I put
my arm in a plastic bag and feel
around to see what I found. I just
couldn't see me doing that. What
if my arm got stuck, too?
I decided to try the plunger
one last. time before calling a
plumber. This time I plunged it
rapidly up and down 13 times. It
unclogged the drain and I put
everything away. I didn't have to
call the plumber.

AN OXEN YOKE, held by Don Marchman
and Allen Hancock, is a gift to the Fort Meade


By LETA WRIGHT

After leaving Bettye's Cafe
the other morning, I rode by the
Fort Meade Historical Museum
and saw a man out around the,
train and farm equipment shed.
I stopped to ask him if he was
interested in old things. He said
he was from Utah and was a
passenger in a truck with his
brother, bringingfrozen fish to
Jacksonville and Winter Garden
from Seattle and then came to
Fort Meade's Peace River Pack-
ing to pick up a load of oranges.
He said he was interested in
old things. You just never know
who you'll meet at the museum.
One afternoon last week, Mrs.
Vera Funk, who lives in
Oakview Lakes, called and of-
fered to give an oxen yoke to the
museum.
I was thrilled, of course, and
told her I would be there in a few
minutes to get it. She said I
would need some men to lift it as
it was very heavy.
I told her I didn't have any
men to help, but I would be there
the next morning.
My mind started to roll, won-
derifig how I was going to man-
age getting that yoke.


Historical Museum from Carl and Vera Funk.
- (Photo provided)


Suddenly, I thought of the
Men's Coffee Club at the restau-
rant.'The next morning I ap-
proached the men for help.
Don Marchman and Allen
Hancock came to the rescue. The
yoke is beautifully finished with

a smooth surface and brightly
varnished, and it is heavy. It is a
real treasure to see and we do
thank Vera for giving it to us.
On March 5, the museum vol-
unteers are going to have a yard
sale at the home of Joyce De-
Vane. The sale proceeds will go
toward the Historical Society Re-
lay for Life team. Joyce lives on
the corner of Northeast Third
Street and Oak.
Our members are gathering
their items together for the sale
and it should be one worth visit-
ing to see if there's something
there for you to purchase.
You just never know what you
might find.
Not only will we have a large
display, but we'll have a good
time visiting with everyone, and
we'll make the price right, as
Bob Barker says on television.
When I left the Episcopal
Church pancake supper at the
Brown House last Tuesday,
about a dozen Model T Fords


were in the parking lot. The
folks from the Flywheelers on
Avon Park Cut-off Road drove
into town to eat pancakes and
sausage.
I carry my camera with me all
the time, but I got so excited
over seeing all those Model T
cars, I forgot to take a picture.
If you would like to see the
Fords, they will be coming
through Fort Meade on Feb. 19,
sometime after lunch.
The parade will have about
100 participants starting at the
Florida Citrus Showcase in Win-
ter Haven at 8 a.m. driving
south on Highway 17 to Bartow
Winn Dixie, through downtown
Bartow, and then to Homeland
Heritage Park for a lunch break
around 12:30.
From there, the parade will
proceed through downtown Fort
Meade, then onto Florida Fly-
wheeler Park.
The park will be open Feb. 24-
27 for all to see the village, trac-
tors, antique cars and visit the
flea market.
Plan now to see to see the pa-
rade of Model T cars and tractors
as they drive down from Winter
Haven.

Buckle Up for Child Passenger Safety Week


By Terry Schiavone
Regional Administrator
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration
Southeast Region

A nation-wide effort to pre-
vent child fatalities due to car
crashes is the focus of Child Pas-
senger Safety Week, Feb. 13-19.
Whether heading to the local
grocery store or gearing up for a
family outing on Valentine's
Day, ensuring that your children
are safely buckled into their car
sfats should be a top priority. It
could mean the difference be-
tween life and death in the event
of an automotive tragedy.


Nearly 1,200 children under
the age of 10 were killed in car
crashes in 2003 across the na-
tion, with almost 300 occurring
in the Southeast alone.
Placing children in the proper
safety seats and restraints dra-
matically decreases the likeli-
hood of injury or death during a
car crash. But to be effective,
those restraints must be used
correctly.
The National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration (NHTSA)
recommends booster seats for
children from about age 4 to at
least 8 years old, unless they are
at least 4 feet 9 inches tall.
Many people also do not real-


Arthritis Foundation


ize that children 12 years of age
or younger should always ride in
the back seat of a vehicle. In the
event of a car crash, children
seated in front could be severely
injured or killed by the force of
deploying air bags, which also
endanger infants in rear-facing
child safety seats positioned in
the front passenger seat.
Additional ways to ensure
that children are properly se-
cured when riding in a vehicle is
to thoroughly review the safety
seat installment instructions
and the vehicle owner's manual
or have your child safety seats
checked'at a Child Safety Seat
Inspection Station.


Visit the NHTSA website at
www.nhtsa.gov/cps/cpsfitting to
find an inspection station near
you. Remember, buckling up
isn't enough to save a child's life.
You also must make sure that
the safety seat is installed prop-
erly in your vehicle.
This Child Passenger Safety
Week, familiarize yourself with
every aspect of your child's
safety prior to any excursion.
Those few minutes just might
save the life of someone you hold
dear.

At present, there are six full-
time business professors at the
Lakeland campus; that number
will be increased by three a year
until there are 12 to 14 business
faculty members, he said. At
that point, USF will offer an
MBA program in Lakeland, he
said.
At present, there are about
2,000 USF students enrolled at
the shared campus. The univer-
sity projects that enrollment will
grow to 15,000 students by,2020
to 2025, and that about one-third
of them will be business majors.
USF plans to build a free-


standing branch campus north of
Lakeland in 2009-10, "but that's
optimistic," he said of the time-
frame.
In the meantime, the univer-
sity will construct another build-
ing on the USF/PCC campus,
and will teach some classes in
off-campus locations, including
high school classrooms.
USF is not in competition
with Florida Southern College,
which also is located in Lake-
land, Walters said.
Southern is a small, private,
residential college, substantially
more expensive that a state uni-
versity, while USF is larger, less
expensive, and non-residential.

Bartow High School's baseball
program will start off a new sea-

Eric Danapilis will be coach-

lege, and professional offensive
records. He also holds the career
batting average and home run
records for Notre Dame.
Danapilis has been coaching

an assistant.
"I came to Bartow to work for
a high quality school, with high
quality athletic programs, and
high quality students," Coach
Danapilis said.
He is currently teaching math
here at Bartow and is devoted to
his baseball team after school.
Leading players this year for
the varsity baseball team will be

Danapilis is excited about this
year's crew and expects a win-
ning season throughout the year.

New Method May Provide For

Computer Crime-Solving Evidence


By CAROLYN GRAMLING
University of Florida

Like an episode of"CSI: Com-
puters," a UF researcher has de-
veloped a technique that gives
digital detectives twice the foren-
sic evidence they now have to
catch all kinds of hackers, from
curious teenagers to disgruntled
employees to agents of foreign
governments.
Writing in an issue of the "In-
ternational Journal of Digital
Evidence," UF doctoral student
Mark Foster proposes a new and
improved method of computer
crime solving, called "process fo-
rensics."
"If a guy walks into a bank
and robs it, leaving footprints be-
hind or his fingerprints on the
counter, the forensic analyst
would come in and find those
traces of what happened," Foster
said.
In the same way, process fo-
rensics merges two existing
types of digital evidence intru-
sion detection and checkpointing
technology to give an investiga-
tor the most possible information
to crack a case, said
Foster, a computer science
and engineering student con-
ducting the research for his dis-
sertation with UF professor of
computer science Joseph Wilson,
who co-wrote the paper.
"If you detect the intruder -
or even if you're just suspicious
that an intruder's around you
start creating checkpoints," Fos-
ter said. "And then later, those
checkpoints will serve to give us
some forensics."
Checkpoints are essentially
periodic snapshots of a running
computer program, or process.
Programmers use them as a
safety backup if the power
goes out while a program is still
running, they can return to the
most recent checkpoint rather
than starting over from the be-
ginning.
Many current programs don't
have built-in checkpointing tech-
nology, creating more work for
programmers, Foster said. So he
developed a technique that auto-
matically creates checkpoints
within a program.
After working separately on
computer security and intrusion-
detection software, he realized
that combining checkpoints with
intrusion detection would create
an efficient forensics tool, he
said.
"If the photographs are taken
at the right times, then we can
see how they got in, what was
tampered with," Foster said.
Foster targets intruders who


want to break into systems that
are host-based or centrally lo-
cated in one primary computer,.
which is then linked to numer-
ous satellite workstations.
One way for an evil-minded
hacker to break into a host-
based computer system is to
sneak in through a "hole," a flaw
in a running program the hacker
can exploit to take control of the
program, run his own programs
or generally gum up the works,
Foster said.
This type of attack is called a
buffer overflow attack, he said.
Current intrusion-detection
software helps an investigator
find out if someone has broken
into a system, identifies the in-
truder and prevents future at-
tacks.
However, the software first
has to learn the computer sys-
tem well .enough to detect any-
thing out of the ordinary, such
as unexpected changes to files
and suspicious programs. Detec-
tion also can require more steps,
such as additional software,
modification of current software
or preparing a program ahead of
time for monitoring.
Foster's process-forensics
method also includes an intru-
sion-detection system that im-
proves on current software by
streamlining detection and
eliminating the training phase.
"This is definitely an area
that is up-and-coming in foren-
sics," said John Leeson, an asso-
ciate professor of computer sci-
ence at the University of Central

Florida and an editor of the In-
ternational Journal of, Digital
Evidence. "I like the fact that
he's taking a proactive approach
- forensics for years has been a
reactive field.
"The idea is that you kind of
need to know when something is
happening before you start col-
lecting information, or it'll be a
lot of useless information," Lee-
son said. "Mark's proposing a
tool that could be activated by an
automatic intrusion-detection
system. I think that's going to
definitely enhance the value of
digital forensics, to be able to
deal with incidents as they are
occurring."
"A lot of times it's recovering
deleted files or looking for hid-
den files," Foster said. "You have
a child stalker who's on the
Internet stalking. children, and
they track him down, they con-
fiscate his computer, and they
'say to the forensic guy, What
kind of evidence can you get
from his computer?"'
Foster said his method tar-
gets a different kind of computer
abuse intruders who want to
hijack a running program.
"This is definitely kind of a
different angle than the tradi-
tional stuff," he said.

Lady Jackets Shut Out

Opponents in Classic


By MARK KING
It was a beautiful day at the
softball field on Saturday when
the Bartow High School Lady
Jackets hosted the annual Pre-
Season Classic at the Hive. Three
other teams came to play in the
yearly contest, but at the end of
the day, it was the defending
Class 4A state champions who
came away with the final victory.
The first game saw the Bartow
Lady Jackets take on the
Leopards of Hernando High
School. It was the first trip into
The Hive for the Leopards and it
was one they will not soon forget.
Painful memories are like that.
They keep coming back to haunt
you.
The pain started early for
Hernando. The Leopards spotted
Bartow with an early four-run
lead. That's kind of like giving the
Patriots a three touchdown start
against the Tampa Bay Storm.
Britta Giddens led off the scor-
ing frenzy for the Bugs with a
base :hit up the middle. After
stealing second base,,.Giddens
plated the first run for BHS when
Staci Fernandez smacked a base
hit down the first base line.
That run' would have been
enough to win the ball game, but
Bartow wasn't finished yet.
Elizabeth Howell launched a
booming double to deep center-
field to score Fernandez.
.Following Howell, Lindsay
Littlejohn banged a single bagger
off the shin of the pitcher, and
Howell scampered across the
plate for the third score. Briana
Leverett came in to pinch run for
Littlejohil and immediately stole
second. Eventually, Leverett
would score the final run of the-
inning on a throwing-error by
Hernando.
Bartow added another run in
the second, two. in 'the fifth and
one more in the sixth to hammer
Hernando in an 8-0 shut out.
The next game was a 2-1 nail-
biter between the George Jenkins'
Eagles and the Thunder of Lake
Region.
Jenkins came av .a with the
victory,. coring runs in the third:
and sixth. The Thunder scored


their only run in the -second
inning, but threatened with run-
ners in scoring position in the
third, fifth and seventh.
Lake Region then 'took out
their frustrations on the
Hernando Leopards, winning the
consolation game 7-0.
In the championship game,
played at 5 p.m., the Bugs faced
off against the Eagles.
This game was a defensive bat-
tle between two of the premier
teams in Polk County. Jerrica
Sanchez got the start on the
mound and did very well indeed.
Meanwhile, Jenkins' pitcher
Ashley Alderman also had a good
game. She held the Jackets score-
less until the bottom of the fifth
inning when Mallory Butler made
it to first base on a fielding gaff
from the Eagles.
Two batters later, Britta
Giddens hit an RBI single to rack
the lone run for the Bugs, giving
Bartow the 1-0 lead they would
carry until the end of the game.
The real season starts this
Friday when the Bugs board the
bus for a ride up the road to take
.on the' Eagles once more. Game
time is 7:30 p.m.
