Commission To Act On


E. F. Griffin Road Plans

Bartow city commission will parcels. of land in East Bartow from R
consider this evening what action He has estimated that at build- (single family residences) to R
-.. ..., to take on several annexations out, there would be about 1,500 (duplexes). The property is on tl


*and comprehensive plan amend-
ments on the E.F. Griffin Road,
actions that are opposed by
neighbors who want the city to
require larger building lots and
fewer homes.
Zoning board recommenda-
tions usually are'approved by the
commission with little discussion,
but neighborhood opposition to
the densities recommended by
the zoning board may make this
meeting the exception.
The commission, at its 5 p.m.
work session, will take prelimi-
nary action on 15 zoning board
recommendations, most of them
dealing with annexation and land
use on E.F. Griffin Road.
The zoning board has recom-
mended "low density residential"
development on the land, but
under Bartow's city code, that
definition allows up to six houses
per acre. Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers has said that with the
requirement for streets and other
infrastructure, it is possible to
put only about 3.3 houses per
acre, and that is the density
anticipated for most of the


homes on E.F. Griffin Road, most
of them in subdivisions zoned R-
1, the city's least restrictive resi-
dential zoning category.
This afternoon's action will be
to approve or disapprove the zon-
ing board's recommendations,
and to direct preparation of ordi-
nances implementing the com-
mission's decision.
Another zoning board recom-
mendation on which the commis-
sion will take preliminary action
at the 5 o'clock work session is
that the city waive bidding
requirements and offer to sell
19.2 acres of vacant property west
of Wal-Mart to Frontier
Development as the site for a
shopping center. Wal-Mart gave
the land to the city in order to
avoid having to go through the
Development of Regional Impact
process for its store.
As part of the deal, Frontier
would be required to persuade
Wal-Mart to lift a restrictive
covenant on the land, which pro-
hibits development of it.
Another zoning board recom-
mendation would rezone a parcel

north side of Bay Street between
Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
After the work session, the
commission will reconvene at
6:30 for its regular business meet-
ing.
Other items on the agenda:
Appointments to the
Community Redevelopment
Agency, the historic architecture
review board, and the mayor's
youth council.
Recognition of William W.
Orr for service as a charter mem-
ber of the CRA board.
Discussion of an appoint-
ment to the beautification board.
1~roclamation of March 5

Days.
Public hearings and final
action on ordinances to change
the way the city calculates the
power cost adjustment charge on
electric bills, to grant Progress
Energy a franchise to serve three
industrial customers located
within the city limits, and to
update the city's fire prevention
and life safety codes.


Commission Expands Indigent


Health Care Benefits Eligibility


UNDER THE DIRECTION OF Director
Jonathan Eckman, the Bartow High School jazz
band performed before a panel of judges during the
Florida Bandmasters Association solo and ensemble
assessment performances, which took place at
Bartow High School. While jazz ensemble wasn't


one of the categories in which BHS received one of
its 47 superior ratings in, Eckman said he was
pleased with the group's performance. "They have
only been together since before Christmas and this
was the first time they had to perform before a
judge," he said. (Staff photo by Rustin Dwyer)


Eligibility for health .are bene-
fits paid by Polk : Cunty's new
indigent health .are tax was
expanded by the polkt County
commission on Wedneiday.
Under the commission's action,
eligibility will Be-:: extended to
households: with :150 percent of
the federally. defined "poverty
level." Previously eligibility was
125 percent of that level.
The new standard makes a
family of four with an -income of
slightly more than $28,000 eligi-
ble for funds, Ed Smith, the coun-
ty's director of community health
and social services, told the com-
mission.


Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson expressed concern that
employers will see no need to
offer health insurance if the coun-
ty provides health care to more
people.
Smith said he didn't see that
happening, asserting that the
county's program is designed to
meet the health care needs "of the
working poor."
The new indigent health care
tax, approved by the voters last
year, went into effect on Jan. 1.
It is projected to produce $26
million a year.
Smith said that raising the
income limits is projected to


increase enrollment in the coun-
ty's medical program by 950 peo-
ple, to a total of 4,500.
The projected cost of the addi-
tional enrollees is $1,235,000.
"The worst thing we can do is
to collect the money and not use
the money," Smith said.
In the past, eligibility for coun-
ty-provided medical care was set
at 150 percent of the poverty
level, but the eligibility was
reduced to 125 percent several
years ago because of budget
restraints, Smith said.
Commissioner Paul Senft pre-
dicted that the expanded health
care program will hold down


health insurance premiums, and
that it will reduce absenteeism in
the work place by raising the
overall level of public health.
County Mgr. Mike Herr said
that by the end. of the fiscal year,
the county will repay $3.5 million
borrowed' from the solid waste
trust fund to pay for indigent
health care. That loan carries a
rate of interest of 2.65 percent.
Approval of the new eligibility
standard came by unanimous
vote of the commission.

BHS Band Captures 47 Superiors

As County-Wide Assesment Hosts


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Anyone who was on the
Bartow High School campus Feb.
11 to 13 can attest: it was a zoo,
but it was a musical one.
BHS played host to the
Florida Bandmasters Association
solo and ensemble music perfor-
mance assessments in Polk
County. More than 1,600 middle
and high school students, plus
parents, band directors and
music fans flooded the campus
for three days of intensive music
performance.
Each group or individual stu-
dents had to perform before a
panel of four certified Florida
Bandmasters Association judges,
all in pursuit of the highest pos-
sible honor a superior rating.
The Yellow Jacket band once
again came out with rave
reviews, earning 47 superior
medals among the various cate-
gories. Most of the awards were
for solo performances, but
Bartow also netted superiors in
the percussion ensemble, wood-
wind trio, clarinet quartet, snare
drum duet, trumpet trio and
flute quartet division.
Despite the crazy atmosphere,
Bartow band Director Jonathan
Eckman said the members of the
local bands maintained their cool
and performed to the best of their
ability.
"It was crazy here, but all in
all I thiik it w nt very smoothly
and was a success," Eckman said.
To prepare for the competition,


Eckman's students got in extra
practice time after school with
him and former director John D.
Young, as well as piano accompa-
niment.
Eckman also said that food
donations from Perkins,


Crispers, Beef O'Bradys and
Subway made the day much
more bearable.
Two students in particular
had a nice day seniors Marie

Linda Weldon, former city
manager of Eagle Lake, has been
named Bartow's assistant city
manager, City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge announced early this
afternoon.
She will begin her duties the
first week in March, he said.
She has more than 25 years of
experience in municipal govern-
ment, most of that time as Eagle
Lake's city manager.
She fills the vacancy left by
Richard Williams, whose planned
retirement date around the end
of 2004 was moved forward by
DeLegge to late August.
DeLegge later designated Fin.
Dir. David Wright as acting assis-
tant city manager, to fill the
duties when DeLegge was out of
town.
Ms. Weldon's primary respon-
sibilities will be overseeing oper-
ations of the parks and recre-
ation department, the Bartow
Public Library, and human
resources. plus special projects,
DeLegge said.
Ms. Weldon, 58, was fired by


the Eagle Lake city commission
after more than 25 years in the
job.
"I've got my opinion on that
whole mess; it was all political,"
DeLegge said.
"We started talking about the
time she started getting in hot
water over there, a couple of
months after Dick Williams
retired," DeLegge said.
"Any city manager who has
worked in a small city has to do a
lot of work themselves, and she
brings that experience to us. Any
project I give her, she will see it
through."
Her starting salary will be
$60,000.
In a memo to department
heads announcing her appoint-
ment, DeLegge said:
"She is a dedicated profession-
al manager whose experience
will be valuable to our organiza-
tion. Her friendly personality is
only. one of her attributes that
will fit in real well with our
team."

Chamber Holds Second February 21, 2005 The Polk County Democrat 3
'Business Principals' Program Derek Menchan To


The Greater Bartow Chamber
of Commerce recently held its
second annual "Business Princi-
pals" program.
Business Principals is an ex-
change program that places Bar-
tow area business leaders with
local school principals and staff.
The program is a project of the
Greater Bartow Chamber of
Commerce.
The program kicked off follow-
ing the Chamber's OJ Breakfast,
sponsored by Bartow Commu-
nity Healthcare Foundation,
Inc., on Jan. 20.
The participants were pro-
vided with program outlines and
requirements as well as their
partner pairings.
Participants were required to
visit their partners' school/busi-
ness for at least a half-day ses-
sion.
They were to discuss their ex-


periences and how the business
and education communities can
better assist and offer support to
each other.
The participants had three
weeks to complete the program
which was concluded with a
wrap-up session following the
Feb. 10 OJ Breakfast, sponsored
by Community National Bank.
At the wrap-up session, many
ideas were proposed to better
communication between the
groups.
The suggested ideas are being
reviewed by the Chamber's edu-
cation committee. The committee
will recommend a new program
to create a better networking en-
vironment for this partnership.

One Person's Exemption


Is Another's Loophole


One person's tax exemption is another
person's loophole.
Once again, Floridians are being asked
to embrace: amendments to the Florida
Constitution that would allow a minority
of the.members of the Legislature to raise
taxes.
Three companion amendments would
require that most sales tax exemptions be
canceled unless a substantial majority of
legislators voted to keep them. A simple
majority votL, would not carry the day.
The last effort to put this concept on the
ballot was struck down by the Florida
Supreme Court for failing to pass muster
for amendments. The new proposal pre-
sumably corrects the shortcomings of the
earlier effort.
John McKay, former president of the
Florida Senate, heads the new effort, as he
dlid the failed one.
This:. new- effort is called the FAIR
amendments, a warm fuzzy acronym for
Floridians Against Inequities in Rates.
That is a much slicker label than what it
is: PFATI, Politicians For Automatic Tax
Increases. -
Those who want to eliminate specific
exemptions in the tax law resort to labeling
them loopholes. The loopholes that they
like they call'exemptions.
'Tobe truly "fair" let's call them allby the
same ianie. .
If every exemption is a loophole, then
these are some of the loopholes in Florida's
tax.law -: ,
One loophole prohibits taxation of gro-
ceries.
One loophole prohibits taxation of pre-
scription drugs.
One loophole prohibits taxation of resi-
dential rents and utilities.
One loophole prohibits taxation of med-
ical services, .
These loopholes all would be preserved
'by the FAIR amendments.
Only they are not called loopholes, since
McKay's organization supports them (or
realizes that, without maintaining them,
the amendments would be doomed from
the start).
Those who seek to raise taxes without a
majority vot6 of the Legislature and
make no mistk, eliminating an exemp-
tion is an increase in taxes are fond of
homing in on some of the more puzzling
ones,. .
One 'of the favorite targets is an exemp-
fion on feed for ostriches raised for food.
The fact is that ostrich stew never really
caught on, and there is only one ostrich


farmer in the state.
The same exemption applies to feed for
other farm animals cows, pigs, chickens
and such, as well as to fertilizer for other
agricultural products.
Feed for animals raised for food is
exempt; the fact that the ostrich business
never caught on does not change the fact
that this exemption was applied to an agri-
cultural commodity.
Another favorite whipping boy is the tax
exemption the loophole on limousine
rides.
Limousine rides are a service, and with
few exceptions, services are exempt from
Florida's sales tax, which is, for the most
part, a tax on consumer goods.
Limousine rides are exempt; so are taxi
rides; so are trips in ambulances. They're
all forms of ground transportation, but
since limousine rides conjure up images of
millionaires and movie stars, they make an
easier target than taxicabs and ambu-
lances.
Cab rides and ambulance trips are
"exemptions;" limousine trips are "loop-
holes."
At present, Florida's legislators, who
must answer to the voters every two years
(for senators, four years), decide what is
taxed and what isn't taxed, by majority
vote. It's a fine old America'-traditiorithat
we all earn in kindergarten:,the majority
rules.
The FAIR amendments would mean
automatic tax increases even if a majority
of the Legislature voted against them.
Surely Floridians have learned some-
thing from the High Speed Rail and Class
Size Amendments, both of which
promised the voters something Without
telling them the costs.
The cost of the FAIR amendments is tax
increases without approval by a majority
of the Legislature.
Call it that, and let the voters decide if
that is what they really want.

Today's Atlanta
Journal/Constitution is loaded
with ads with a-picture of George
Washington and Abraham
Lincoln on the top of the page.
I had no trouble identifying
; them-. Washington had on his
white wig and Lincoln had his
black beard. The rest of it is in
Alphabet Speak.
There are 42 ads on this page.
That is, forty0.two ads. This not a
'typo. I don't intend to go shop-
.ping for the things on that page,
because there is not one 'single
item that I. recognize or would
'know what fo' do with. I think
"that is downright'rude, irritating,
'tacky and a pain in the neck.
I understand the ads in this
thick holiday paper for every-
,thihg else under the sun new
^cars, used cars, trucks, tires, for-
,mal gowns, clothes to show off,


the belly button, coffee, bacon
and dog food' The stuff on this
page is a mystery to me.
The first thing on the page is
an Intel Celeron 2.46Hz Processor
with Combo DVD-ROM and CD-
RW Drive. In what looks like an
electric cloud it says,
"No Rebate Required!" It costs
$229.99.
On the same line is another ad
for a COMPAQ Pentium 4
3.0GHz Hyper-Treading
Notebook WITH 17" XGA
Brightview Screen. This little gem
has been reduced from $1,529 to
$1,349.99. I don't have a clue
what all of this means. My first
computer was a COMPAQ and it
worked pretty good, but I am
now en my fourth computer.
What is a 16X DVD Writer
Double Layer Internal Drive?.
You can get one of these for only


$99.99.
I don't know what a PalmONE
Zire 31 is, either, but it seems to
be a real bargain at $148. The fur-
ther down the page you read, the
less things cost and the more I
,understand.
,Way down at the bottom of the
ad, there is something I recognize
- a carpet cleaner-shampooer
for $49.99. I am tempted to order
one, except I don't have any car-
pets and send the rugs out to be
cleaned. Wow. $49.99.
I am tempted to order one, any
way.
I am in enough trouble already
with new gadgets. I bought a cell
phone two weeks ago and it has
disappeared in the boxes of stuff
I am sorting to either throw away
or keep.
They didn't mention how
much cell phones are.


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

Listen Up ... Importantly


The press is the last guardian
of the language.
Sometimes too often we
don't do much of a job of guard-
ing it.
After all, in the final days of
the late, unlamented Nixon
Administration, we faithfully
quoted members of the White
House staff as telling us what was
going on "at that point in time"
or how things looked "at this
point in time" and nobody point-
ed out how absurd that was.
Some editor should have
climbed to the top of the
Washington monument and,
clinging to that noble structure
like King Kong at the top of the
Empire State Building, shouted
for the nation to hear:
"At that point in time" means
"then;" and "at this point in
time" means "now."
But no, we allowed those
inane phrases to enter our con-
sciousness with the same fre-
quency as a member of the
HUAC endlessly muttering
"Point of, order, Mr. Chairman,

INSIDE OUT / By CHI]



In the early morning quiet of
the dawn of another day, I watch
through the window of my writ-
ing room the doves, cardinals,,
and red-winged blackbirds peck
the earth beneath the bird feeder
that hangs waist-high beneath
the Temple orange tree in the
back yard. I climbed that tree
when I was a boy as my 12-year-
old son Kyle climbs it now.
When I was Kyle's age, this
room used to be called the sleep-
ing porch. It was my bedroom,
and at night I would lie in bed by
the window and listen to whip.
poorwills calling from the Peace
River Swamp. Night jasmine
grew by the garage out back and
its fragrance would waft into the
sleeping porch through the open
windows and perfume the whole
house.
Zolfo was different then.
Bustling Highway 17 was a nar-
row two-lane, lined on either side
with huge old live oaks whose
spreading branches made a long,
green tunnel through the center
of town. Traffic was so sparse that
sometimes in the evening, as
lightning bugs began their
sparkling ballet, my grandmother
and I would sit on the front porch

point of order."
You don't remember the
House Un-American Activities
Committee? Than you probably
don't know who Joe McCarthy
was, either.
That's okay; the Saturday
matinee at the Ritz Theater used
to cost seven cents, and I really
don't expect you to remember
that, either. (Yes, there are people
who say it cost a dime, but that
came later.)
But I have strayed a bit afield
from the announced intention of
today's epistle, which is to rele-
gate "importantly" to the Field of
Adverbs, from which it has
strayed.
From time to time, the
Community of Man seems intent
on taking a word and mispro-
nouncing it or misusing it until it
becomes chic to do so.
We allowed Watergate con-
spirators 'to try to explain away
their iniquities by telling
Congress that it seemed like a
good idea "at that point in time."
Today, we allow politicians


and others in the public forum to
emphasize a point by saying,
"More importantly..."
Of all the parts of speech I
can't remember how many there
are, but it's not many the sim-
plest to identify is the adverb. By
definition, an adverb modifies a
verb, an adjective, or another
adverb, Okay, that's not all that
simple.
What is simple about an
adverb is that every adverb ends
in "ly." There may be a few words
that end in "ly" that aren't
adverbs, but let's not fret over
that today.
The point is, an adverb can't
hang out there, like a dangling
participle or a Fear Factor contes-
tant. It has to modify something,
specifically a verb, an adjective,
or another adverb.
Usually a verb, but you only
have to know that for extra cred-
it.
If you're taking a walk, and
you're tired (or getting up in
years), you don't walk "slow;"
you walk "slowly." Walk is a

verb, and when you modify a
verb, you do it with an adverb.
which ends in "ly."
While it is a bit of a stretch,
you could "walk importantly,"
though I would suggest that
"stride importantly" has a more
Presidential sound to it.
Just about any context that I
can imagine in which "impor
tantly" is used properly as an
adverb is awkward. But it can be
done. The caption of today's mes-
sage is an example of correct, but
awkward, usage of the word as
an adverb, modifying the verb,
"listen."
What cannot be done unless
you want to turn over the preser
vation of the King's English to the
likes of Prince Charles and
Camilla is to dangle "most
importantly" out there as if it
were proper usage.
It's not.
It wasn't correct at any previ-
ous point in time, and it most
assuredly isn't correct at this
point in time.


P BALLARD

Zolfo in the Good 01' Days


and count cars, sometimes giving
up and going inside before we
got to 10.
I have not heard a whippoor-
will in years. In 1960, Hurricane
Donna claimed the live oaks.
Herbicides and pesticides have
killed the lightning bugs.
Children growing up in Zolfo
today have never seen a lightning
bug.
Nature took the live oaks, peo-
ple destroyed the lightning bugs,
but forces that stole our town's
innocence are more subtle and
complex. In the days before air-
conditioning' and TV, people vis-
ited, talked, communicated.
People knew their neighbors.
After dark, my mother and
grandmother 'and I often would
walk: It seems odd now that back
then it never even occurred to us
to be afraid. We knew everyone
in town ,and they knew us. Men
and women rocked on front
porches while children played on
lawns, and it would take us an
hour to walk only a few blocks
because we stopped to chat along
the way.
The store now called Zolfo
Supermarket used to be Ballard's
Grocery. My dad owned it for


nearly 50 years and his daddy
owned it before him. An event to
which I looked forward was the
Friday night movie, which an old
man with a movie projector
showed on the outside wall of the
store building. The man sold
popcorn and Cokes. He brought a
truckload of hay bales for folks to
sit on.
We watched Roy Rogers, Gene
Autry, Lash Larue, Tex Ritter,
Randolph Scott, Jimmy Wakely
and other cowboy heroes; all of
whom knew right from wrong,
and had the courage to fight for
the right.
Another event I looked for-
'ward to was the Saturday night
street dances held on Sixth
Avenue between Suwannee
Street and Highway 17. The
Mercer Boys (no relation to Roy
D.) parked a flatbed truck behind
Allen's Service Station and set up
their equipment on the flatbed;
. they picked and grinned,
yahooed and yodeled for hours.
Adults whirled and twirled and
hooted and hollered while chil-
dren ran and played in the moon-
light. Drugs were unheard of; if
anyone drank alcohol, they did it
discreetly.


Keep Low Density Housing


BARTOW I would like to
plead for 'the way of life I have
enjoyed for my entire life in
Bartow.
My family settled in the
Bartow area over 100 years ago
and I am now over 80 years
young.
We still live here because we
love the area and still live on E.F.


Griffin Road because we love the
country setting.
We only ask that the city con-
sider this as they approve more
and more growth in the area.
Such growth without prior con-
sideration of road planning,
school planning and the loss of
our life styles is not smart.
Another major concern is


water. We have been in a water
shortage situation for years.
Where is the water coming from?
Please let the few acres left be
one house per acre. Money
should not be the only considera-
tion.

As Archie and Edith Bunker
sang at the beginning of every

"those were the days." But like
the smoke and dust in the wake
of disaster and destruction of the
New York World Trade Center,
those days seem farther and far
their away as memories of the age
of innocence grow dim and the
dangers of living in today's X-
rated world of moral ambiguity
become too clear.

Last Sunday afternoon Mar-
ian Clyatt, Peggy Langston and I
motored over to Frostproof in the
"Yellow Streak" to meet with
Betty Fulton and June Felt for a
historic adventure.
The old Frostproof High
School was bought by the city
and has been renovated to house
city government offices upstairs.
It is beautiful. The offices are
large and spacious. They are
equipped with modern furniture,
equipment and carpet and the
building has a large elevator.
As I looked at this old build-
ing with its makeover, I wished I
could press a button and auto-
matically have our old Fort
Meade High School in place.
The Historical Preservation
Committee of Frostproof is work-
ing toward renovating the first
floor of the building, which will
be used for civic affairs.
On March 12, they are plan-
ning to sponsor a fundraising


benefit for the restoration of the
former Frostproof High School
Auditorium, which seats around
550 people.
The benefit will feature Davis
Gaines, whose mother, Stella, is
a native of Frostproof. His par-
ents met at the old Frostproof
High School.
Gaines performed the title
role in Andrew Lloyd Webber's
"Phantom of the Opera" more
than 2,000 times for an audience
of more than five million people
during a run on Broadway and
in Los Angeles and San Fran-
cisco.
This will be an intimate eve-
ning with Gaines performing
standards and Broadway classics
from "Hello Dolly," "Camelot,"
Showboat," "Kiss Me Kate,"
"Phantom" and other shows.
The performance will take
place in the auditorium at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available from $50 to
$100, depending on seating.
Seating in the blue premium
area will be $200 per person, and

DURING THE WEEK OF Valentine's Day,
children attending preschool 3 year-old through
seventh grade classes at First Methodist School
delivered a daily reminder gifts from the faculty
and staff to parents. The gifts were in apprecia-
tion for all that parents do for the school and the
children. The little gifts were: raisins for "raisin
such great children;" Lifesavers for "being a
lifesaver to us all"; Mounds candy for "mounds
of appreciation"; mints for "being mint (meant)
to be here;" and First Methodist School pencils


for "supplying us with such 'sharp' students."

Piercings May Be A Trend Equal To Long

Hair In The 1960s Researchers Say


For college students anxious
to rebel against their parents'
fashion sensibilities, getting a
tattoo or piercing may be the mo-
dem-day equivalent of the 1960s-
era fascination with long hair
and love beads.'
As with the hippie look, body
art has caught on with both gen-
ders. But the motivations fueling
a trip to the tattoo and piercing
parlor can vary dramatically be-
tween men and women, and be-
tween individuals. ..
Youngsters may sport tribal
tats or facial piercings because
they're thrill-seekers, says a
University of Florida researcher.
,, Others might want to work
through a traumatic life experi-
ence or just find romantic part-
ners.
UF researchers co-authored a
study published recently in the
journal "Personality and Individ-
ual Differences" that examined
gender differences and personal-
ity'traits among college students
who had at least one tattoo or
non-traditional piercing, defined
as located anywhere other than
the earlobe.
Popular piercing sites include
the eyebrows, nose, lips, tongue,
chin, nipples, navel and genitals.
"Fifty years ago, generally
Americans did not have tattoos
or any alternative body modifica-
tion," said Dr. Eric Storch, a UF
assistant professor of pediatrics
and psychiatry and a study co-
author. "Times have really quite
quickly changed."
A 1999 study by researchers
from Emory University and
Howard University published in
the "Journal of Public Health
Policy" indicated that 15 percent
to. 20 percent of the U.S. teen
and young adult population had
tattoos, and that a typical pierc-
ing establishment would perform
about 3,000 piercings per year.
The new UF study, based on a
written survey of about 280 UF
undergraduates, showed that
i those with multiple piercings
were much more likely to have
experienced stressful life events
such as severe injury or illness,
abuse or the death of a loved
one, Storch said.


In the study, he collaborated
with principal investigator Dr.
Jonathan Roberti, a psychologist
and clinical researcher at the
University of South Florida and
the New College of Florida, and
former UF research assistant Er-
ica Bravata.
In addition, men in the study
were more likely than their fe-
male counterparts to seek out
new' and intense experiences,
Storch said. And despite the
common perception that people
with body art are free spirits, the
results suggest at least one gen-
der stereotype that tattoos are
strictly for men may still
wield influence.
More than 80 percent of the
160 women surveyed were
pierced but less than 20 percent
were tattooed, Storch said.
In contrast, half the men in
the study had piercings and half
had tattoos. Men also waited
longer to get pierced 40 per-
cent took the plunge at age 18 or
older, compared with less than
20 percent of women.
"My initial interpretation is
that this very much reflects so-
cietal points of view," Storch
said. "That is, it is very accept-
able for a woman to have pierc-
ings in multiple places and a bit
less so for men."
One aspect of piercing where
gender seemed irrelevant was
that both men and women with
multiple piercings reported
greater incidence of stressful life
experiences, Storch said. Pierc-
ings might help some people
work through past trauma by
giving them a permanent re-
minder of a difficult event in
their lives, he said.
"We were slightly surprised
that it (a stressful experience)
was not predictive of the number
of tattoos people get," Storch
said. Because tattoos can com-
municate more visual informa-
tion than piercings, the research-
ers expected to find a correlation
between multiple tattoos and
stressful experiences, he said.
College, students with an in-
terest in body art don't necessar-
ily have more psychological im-
pairment than their classmates,

but the study results regarding
multiple piercings shouldn't be
ignored, Roberti said.
"One of my goals for engaging
in this research was to heighten
awareness on college campuses
of potential problems that could
be associated with body art," he
said. "Our findings could assist
college counselors, faculty and
other health-care professionals
in developing proactive outreach
programming for students."
.But for many students, a tat-
too or piercing is simply a way to
show off their wild side.
The UF study found men had
higher scores than women on
parts of the survey measuring
their sensation-seeking tenden-
cies, Storch said. Sensation seek-
ing, the drive to have new,
unique and intense life experi-
ences, is associated with partici-
pation in activities ranging from
extreme sports to illicit drug use
to dangerous driving.
Historically, men have been
greater sensation seekers and
that hasn't changed in recent
times, said Dr. Marvin Zucker-
man, a professor emeritus of
clinical psychology with the Uni-
versity of Delaware.
'But since the 1970s women
have been less inhibited, particu-
larly about sexual matters, he
said.
Sexual attraction and its tra-
ditional counterpart, long-term
commitment, may be keys to the
popularity of body modification,
Zuckerman said. Most personal-
ity traits have little predictive
value in determining which men
will marry which women, but
when it comes to sensation seek-
ing, "like attracts like.
"People use various ways of
signaling in their search for at-
tachments," Zuckerman said. "
Tattooing and piercing are ways
of identifying one's self to others.
So that it's a way to, you might
say, save time in the mating
game."7
But today's outrageous trend
may be tomorrow's routine
grooming option, Storch said. He
cites the recent history of longer
hairstyles among U.S. men as an
example in 1964 the Beatles'
"mop-top" coifs shocked televi-
sion viewers; five years later
shoulder-length hair was a po-
litical statement for those op-
posed to the Vietnam War.
By the 1980s, flowing manes
were worn by so many men for
so many reasons they no longer
meant anything in particular.
"I think what we're seeing is
kind of.a recycling of that rebel-
lion, just in a different form,"
Storch said. "Regardless of the
meaning behind it, body modifi-
cation is a way to express your
individuality."

Pantojan and Dawn Klein. The
two, who have 14 years of band
experience between them, racked
up a combined six superior
medals.
Both agreed that the time and
dedication it takes to play music
at a high level saps away free
time, but neither one could imag-
ine doing anything else.
"I don't plan on pursuing
music as a career choice," said
Miss Pantojan, "but I plan to con-
tinue playing. It's like therapy. It
keeps me sane."
For Miss Klein, the benefits of
playing music are a little more
material. She said she enjoys the
job opportunities playing music
has opened up for her.
Miss Klein, who recieved an
impressive four superior medals,
plans on pursuing a music major
in college. She said she hasn't

Bartow's Pitching and Defense

Key In Rematch With Jenkins


By MARK KING

Not quite one week after they
met in the Pre-Season Classic
championship game, the Bartow
High School Lady Jacket softball
team traveled to George Jenkins
High School on Friday to cage
the Eagles 2-0 in the 2005 sea-
son opener.
As with the game the week
before, this one turned out to be
a championship-style battle be-
tween two teams consistently
ranked as two of the best softball
programs in Polk County.
The game was a stalemate un-
til the top of the fourth inning
when Staci Fernandez pounded
a base hit and wound up at sec-
ond base. That's when Lindsay
Littlejohn cranked out a base hit
of her own to plate Fernandez
for the go-ahead score.
In the next inning, Itty-Bitty
Britta Giddens drew a walk, and
then stole second base. Whitney
Little bunted in a sacrifice at-
tempt that actually turned into a


base hit and more. The Eagles'
defense erred on the throw to
first, allowing Giddens to scam-
per all the way home for the sec-
ond and final run of the game.
Defensively for the Bugs, Lit-
tlejohn, Bartow's senior primo
hurler, pitched a one-hittter
from the circle, fanning seven
Birdies..
However, the defensive high-
light of the game for Bartow
came in the bottom of the fourth
inning.
With only one out and the
bases loaded for the Eagles, Bar-
tow was holding on to a tenuous
1-0 lead. The Jenkins' batter
smacked a line drive to the Bugs'
first baseman, Rachel Jackson.
Jackson reacted to the ball
quickly as second baseman Fer-
nandez ranged over to her left to
back up the play.
The ball glanced off the glove
of Jackson and into the air. Fer-
nandez caught the deflection on
the fly for the second out. Then,
she alertly ran across the bag to


get the runner out at first for an
unusual 3-4 double play, ending
the inning and the only real scor-
ing threat from the Birdies.
"We are really happy to get
that first win under our belt and
get our feet wet for the new sea-
son," said BHS Head Coach
Glenn Rutenbar after the vic-
tory. "We've got a big week com-
ing up."
And a big week it is, with the
Bugs' next game being their
home opener on Thursday night
when they dance with the Red
Devils of Kathleen in a 7:30 p.m.
gala event.
Then on Friday night, BHS
will try to corral the Merritt Is-
land Mustangs at The Hive. Sat-
urday, the ladies will host the
Trojans of Tallahassee Lincoln
High School for the third game
of the week.
WWBF AM 1130 will broad-
cast the games for fans who can-
not attend and partake of the
unique atmosphere available at
One Bug Place.

Braxton Williams was the
only Moccasin in double figures
with 10 points, but Florida
Southern men's basketball team
dominated the boards and held
Eckerd to 21 percent shooting in
a 60-43 win over the Tritons.
Florida Southern (16-9, 7-8)
held Eckerd (17-8, 10-4) to its
lowest point total of the year and
allowed the Tritons to make just
nine-of-44 field goal attempts,
including a three-for-20 effort
from 3-point range. It was the
Tritons' lowest scoring game
since a 69-40 loss to Florida
Southern on Feb. 23, 2000.
While the Tritons were shoot-
ing 18 percent in the second half,
the Mocs were 12-for-24 from the
field, six-for-six from three-point
distance and seven-for-eight
from the line.
Florida Southern out-re-
bounded Eckerd 41-26 with
Kenny Ebanyat grabbing 12 and
Blake Williams pulling down a
career-high 11. Ebanyat was also


the Mocs' second leading scorer
with nine points, added three as-
sists and two blocked shots.
The Tritons were led by Greg
Plummer who was their only
player in double figures with 16
points and also their top re-
bounder with five. Steve Berg
scored nine points. The loss,
combined withf,Lynn's victory
over Saint Leo, dropped the Tri-
tons out of first place in the Sun-
shine State Conference, one
game behind the Knights with
only two games remaining.
It marks the second week in a
row Florida Southern has
knocked the league's first-place
team out of that spot. Last week
the Moccasins did so with a 66-
65 overtime win over Lynn.
Florida Southern will play its
final conference game of the sea-
son on Wednesday night against
Saint Leo at 7:30. It will also be
the Mocs' final home game of the
season.


Fort Meade Leisure Services To Assist

With Three Senior Game Events


Fort Meade's Leisure Services
staff will assist in managing
three of the 32 sporting events
offered by the county-wide Polk
Senior Games competitions.
Fort Meade has been associ-
ated with the games since their
beginnings 13 years ago. This
year, FMLS will assist with the
fishing, kayak race and checkers
The checkers tournament will
be held at the Fort Meade Com-
munity Center on Tuesday,
March 1, at 1 p.m. It will be a
double-elimination competition
with one game match. All par-
ticipants are required to pre-reg-
ister through the Polk Senior
Games office. No entries will be
allowed the day of the event. The
winners of the top three sports
in each of the age divisions will
receive Olympic-style medals for
their efforts.
Director Dennis Guenther
and his Fort Meade staff will be
co-managers of the fishing tour-
nament along with Ray Watson


and his Tenoroc Fish Manage-
ment Area (TFMA) staff. The
event is scheduled to take place
at the TFMA's "Derby" lake on
Thursday, March 3, beginning at
8:30 p.m. Again, all entrants
must be pre-registered prior to
the day of the event.
Contests will be held to see
who catches the most fish and
largest fish as well as an addi-
tional competition to test the
casting skills of the participants.
Medals and prizes will be
awarded for the top three in
each of the age divisions and
categories of competition. More
than 60 people took part in last
year's competition, when more
than 10 bass were caught weigh-
ing at least three pounds each.
The final event in which the
FMLS will share management
responsibility is the kayak race.
This activity will be held at Lake
SAriana in Auburndale on Tues-
day, March 8, at 1 p.m. Natalie
Benton and the Auburndale Rec-


reaction and Parks Department
staff will assist in supervising
this event.
This year's competition will be
a half-mile race around a course
that will have a start and finish
line at the public beach boat
ramp. The kayaks and all the
necessary equipment will be fur-
nished by the FMLS and Action
Water Sports of Auburndale.
Competitors will be awarded
medals for the top three places
in each of the age divisions for
men and women separately. Be-
cause it is not required that the
entrants have prior experience
in the use of the sit-on-top kay-
aks, a pre-race instruction and
demonstration practice period
will begin at noon.
The Polk Senior Games is cur-
rently one of the largest and
most organized events in the
state. More than 2,400 partici-
pated in last year's activities,
which included 50 separate com-
petitions.


Number One Ranked Mocs LCS

Sweep Bryant To Go 12-0 AccptiOn
Applications


The top-ranked Florida
Southern baseball team ran
their season-opening winning
streak to 12 straight games
with a 5-4 win over Bryant
(R.I.) Sunday at Henley Field.
Now off to their best start
since the 1987 team won its
first 13 games, the Moccasins
had to survive a ninth-inning
rally by Bryant to remain un-
beaten.
Kyle DeYoung started the
ninth inning on the mound
and retired the first two bat-
ters, but Bryant then put to-
gether four straight singles to
produce two runs before DeY-
oung was able to retire the
side. DeYoung picked up his
fourth save, preserving the


win for Brian Reves, who im-
proved to 3-0.
Matt Joyce's two-run single
in the first put the Moccasins
out in front. They scored sin-
gle runs in the fourth and
sixth to answer Bryant runs in
the top of those innings. Matt
Mercurio's RBI-fielder's choice
in the eighth produced what
proved to be the deciding run.
Nick Diyorio had three hits for
the Mocs, giving him 10 for the
weekend series and raising his
team-leading batting average
to .547.
The Moccasins play a non-
conference game against Eck-
erd at 7 p.m. Wednesday night
at Henley Field.
