Appointment To PCOC


Board To Be Discussed


WISHING THEM WELL, junior ROTC members from all over the
county signed a giant banner wishing the 116th Field Artillery,
Battery A, 2nd Battalion well before the unit ships out to Afghanistan
later this month. While ROTC members from all over the county
signed the banner at the Military Ball last month, cadets from Bartow
High School presented it. Historically, more than 25 percent of the
unit has been made up of BHS graduates. The sign was donated by
Douglass Screen Printing and put together by Lynn Hooley. At the cer-
emony were (from left) BHS ROTC instructor Sgt. 1st Class Lloyd
Harris; cadets Steven Wheeler, Tiffani Rhaner, and Tim Daughtry;


Main Street, New Park

Projects Go To Bid


Reconstruction of Main Street
and construction of a park east of
Bartow High School have been
put out to bid, City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge -told the city commis-
sion.
The Main Street redesign will
change the appearance and char-
acter of the downtown business
district. Sidewalks will be
widened and the street narrowed
to make the street more pedestri-
an friendly, and to discourage its
use for through traffic,..
Main Street becomes a city
street, and Van- Fleet Drive
becomes State Road 60, giving up
its original designation :as the SR
60 bypass.
The park on the east side of
the BHS campus will be a joint
project of the city and the school
board. The focal point will be a
walking/jogging/skating track
around the pond in the middle of
what used to be Wilsons Pasture.
The school board will build recre-
ational fields on the south side of
the pond.
Trails will connect that park
with Nye Jordan Park to the east
and Mary Holland Park to the
south.
The park has tentatively been
called Summerlin Park, honoring
the pioneer Bartowan who gave
land for schools, two churches,
and the county seat.
Commissioner Pat Huff said
he has received a suggestion that
it be named Wilon-. Park.
In other business, the commis-
sion:
Pasded o final reading ordi-


nances to change the way the city
calculates the power cost adjust-
ment charge on electric bills, to
grant Progress Energy a fran-
chise to serve three industrial
customers located within the city
limits, and' to update the city's
fire prevetition and life safety
codes.
Told DeLegge he need no
longer publicly announce the
monthly power cost adjustment
on electric bills, but is simply to
inform commissioners in a memo.
Gave preliminary approval
to a zoning board recommenda-
tion to rezone a parcel of land in
East Bartow from R-1 (single
family residences) to R-2 (duplex-
es). The property is on the north
side of Bay Street between Sixth
and Seventh Avenues.
Designated Huff to recom-
mend someone for appointment
to the zoning board.
Proclaimed March 5 through
13 as Spring Clean-Up Week.
Heard Al Snapp report that
he had checked into why the
Floral Avenue Elementary School
crossing guard at Shumate Drive
and Clower Street doesn't remain
on duty when Bartow Middle
School is dismissed, and had
learned that state law does not
require crossing guards for stu-
dents in the sixth grade and high-
er.
Heard Chet Luliette renew
his recommendation that the city
build sidewalks on Floral Avenue
from Stuart Street to Main
Street.

County Takes First


Steps Toward Work


Release Facility,


Jail Renovation


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer
Much like the most elite of
hotels, Polk's jails are becoming
overcrowded, but unlike hotels,
inmates cannot change their
arrival or departure dates to coin-
cide with openings.
Therefore, county commission-
ers approved two proposals this
week, both of which are the first
steps toward adding new beds for
inmates.
The first deals with a proposal
for a new work camp, which will
be located near the Central Jail
in East Bartow.
Commissioners approved an
agreement for architectural ser-
vices with Furr and Wegman on
Wednesday, the first step toward
building the camp.
Jim Freeman, deputy county
manager, presented the proposal
to the board, stating that the first
phase of the camp will offer 100
new beds for inmates allowed
work release.
'We selected the Central Jail
due to the availability of support
services, such as food service,
laundry service and nearness to
public transportation to help
inmates get to work," he said.
While PCSO Capt. Joseph G.
Watson said staff are still deter-
mining the criteria inmates
would have to meet for the new
program, the sheriff's office does
allow inmates to work to help pay
for correction costs.
In the new program, the
inmates will pay a daily rate, and


can purchase meals and other
necessities from the jail.
Programs in other counties
offer job placement and allow
inmates to find their own employ-
ment, which Watson said is the
recommended plan for Polk.
'That way if someone is going
to jail, and they know how long
'the sentence is, they may be able
to keep their job and request
being put in the program," he
said.
Eventually, the plan calls for a
facility, located outside the exist-
ing jail gates, which can house
400 inmates. Freeman said the
first phase offers two 50-bed pods
and central services, such as
offices, receiving area and
restrooms.
The first phase, which is the
most expensive due to the inclu-
sion of the offices and other
amenities, will cost about $2.4
million to actually construct
Freeman said.
Future phases will cost less,
and he said the sheriff's office is
anticipating lower personnel
costs as well. Staff will not have
to be as highly qualified as those
working with jailed inmates,
since the new facility will be
located outside.
'This plan allows for individu-
als to also contribute to the price
of their incarceration," he said.
"I think this is a great idea,"
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson
said, who appeared in favor of

Bartow city commissioners will
begin anew this evening their
efforts to appoint a member of the
board of directors of the Polk
County Opportunity Council.
For several months, the PCOC
board refused to seat the city's
appointee, David Hallock.
In February, the commission
offered Hallock an appointment
to the Community
Redevelopment Agency, giving
him the choice between the CRA
and PCOC.

The Bartow city commission is
one of five public bodies entitled
to appoint one of the 15 members
to the board of PCOC, a commu-
nity action agency-which operates
Head Start and other federally-
funded programs.

Bartow's 'annual Somewhere
Close To St. Patrick's Day Parade
will be held on Saturday, March
12, a scant five days before
Ireland observes the same holi-
day.
It will be organized (to use the
term loosely) on the east side of
the old court house, and will
meander out onto Main Street
promptly at 12 noon, or as soon
thereafter as all the pictures are
taken and other organizational


When the city appointed
Hallock, the remaining members
of the board refused to accept the
appointment, resulting in lengthy
negotiations with the city.
Commissioners considered ter-
minating their affiliation with the
agency, but at the urging of
Mayor Leo Longworth, a former
member of the PCOC board,
decided against that action.
The PCOC appointment will be
discussed at the commission's
work session, which begins at 5
o'clock this afternoon at city hall.
The commission will reconvene
for its regular business meeting
at 6:30.
Other items on the agenda:
Acknowledgement of the
appointment of Michael Hamil as
a trustee of the police officers'

Judging from the return
address on the envelope, Holly
Wilson apparently is in charge of
this event once again.

That's all the information
there was in the announcement,
so presumably nothing else has
changed.
That means that the parade
probably will head east on Main
Street to Oak Avenue, then south
on Oak to Nye Jordan Park,
where it will disband with the
customary round of self-laudatory
comments about how this was the
best parade ever, and the throngs

Developer Has Six Months To Negotiate


With Wal-Mart To Build on Land Near Store


Frontier Development has six
months to accomplish what the
city of Bartow has been unable to
do for years: convince Wal-Mart
that it should lift a development
ban on 19.1 acres of land that it
gave to the city in 1991.
If it can persuade Wal-Mart to
lift a restrictive covenant that
requires that the land be pre-
served for "recreation and open
space" use or that it is making
progress toward that goal -
Frontier will have the right to
negotiate for purchase of the land
from the city without competitive
bidding.
Mort Boyle of Frontier
DIevelopment and Atty. Mike
Gallagher of the Peterson and
Myers law firm told the commis-
sion that Frontier has a track


record of working with Wal-Mart
for development of other out-
parcels.
The land, immediately west of
the Wal-Mart store on Van Fleet
Drive, was given to the city by
the company 14 years ago in
order to avoid having to do
through a "development of
regional impact" procedure to
build the store, Gallagher told
the city commission. But the gift
came with the restriction that
the land could not be developed.
"Wal-Mart didn't want to give
us anything that was worth any-
thing," Planning Dir. Robert
i..-rs told the city commission.
The land consists of two parcels
separated by a drainage facility,
he said.
I'he city gets inquiries on ilhe


property every two or three
months, but has been unable to
get any response from Wal Mart
headquarters in Bentonville,
Ark., on lifting the restriction on
development, he said.
Frontier believes it can get
action from Wal-Mart, and
another developer wants to take
a shot at it if Frontier is unsuc-
cessful, Wiegers told the commis-
sion.
The land is zoned for commer-
cial development, and is one of
the last undeveloped parcels
fronting on Van Fleet Drive, he
said.
Frontier would negotiate with
Wal-Mart to put a commercial
development on the land that
would not compete with the giant
retailer, Gallagher said.


In addition to the restrictive
covenant prohibiting develop-
ment of the property, Frontier
would have to deal with a Tampa
Electric Co. easement across the
land and with some floodplain
issues, he said.
Two Bartowans questioned
the city's decision to waive the
bidding requirement in the city
code and to negotiate with only
one purchaser.
"I don't think anybody should
be prohibited from putting a bid
on it," businessman Tim Murphy
told the commission.
On a separate issue, he cau-
tioned the city to be aware of the
costs of annexation. The Polk
Vision (iri,.,riin alirm determined
that for every $100 in taxes gen-
erated by new homes, a demand


for $120 worth of municipal ser-
vices is created, he said.
Gerald Cochran, a frequent
critic of the commission, also
opposed waiving the bid process,
telling the commission: "Let's see
what our property is worth." He
also said the land is environmen-
tally sensitive wetlands.
Wiegers said the city would
not be committed to selling the
property to Frontier, but would
be giving Frontier the opportuni-
ty to negotiate a purchase price
with the facility if it can getV Wal-
Mart to agree to devel opment.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to give Frontier six
Months to secure a release ['rom
Wal-Mart, subject to an ext.en-
sion of time if Frontier is making
progress toward that. goal.

Adopt A

Manatee

This Easter
Instead of a live chick or
bunny, or even a stuffed chick or
bunny, why not fill your child's
Easter basket with a manatee?
Adopting a manatee from the
Save the Manatee Club will al-
low your child to learn about an
endangered species and proceeds
from the club's adoption program
are used for conservation pro-
grams to protect manatees and
their habitat.
For $25, "parents" receive a
photo of a manatee, the mana-
tee's biography, an adoption cer-
tificate, and a membership hand-
book with information on mana-
tees.
In addition, from now until
April 30, each new membership
adoption purchased at $35 or
more will feature a plush mana-
tee toy and a coloring and activ-
ity book.
All members will receive up-
dates on their adopted manatees
four times a year in the Save the
Manatee Club Newsletter.
For more information on the
program or to adopt a manatee,
visit www.savethemanatee.org
or call 1-800-432-Join.

non-native invasive plants from
natural areas.
In Polk County assistance is


needed at Hickory Lake Scrub
for an aii potato roundup. "Both

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

For the Record, Tigers Beat the Yanks


Editorial/





P age





Bud Plays by the Rules;

Lawton Would Be Proud


Several weeks ago, Lawton Chiles,
III, known to his friends as "Bud,"
announced that he planned to run for
Governor, the office once held by his
father, Lawton Chiles.
The elder Chiles, whose home was in
Lakeland, served as both a United
States Senator and as Governor, and
died at the Governor's Mansion a short
time before the expiration of his term in
o office. To Polk Countians, he was sim-
ply Lawton.
Bud Chiles announced last week that
he is withdrawing from the race,
because the Florida Constitution
requires that the Governor live in the
state for seven years prior to his elec-
tion.
Though Bud Chiles considers him-
self a Floridian, he returned to Florida
two years ago after living for 10 years
in New York and New Jersey. He reject-


ed suggestions from supporters that he
file suit challenging the residency law,
saying: "As Governor, you've got to
uphold the Constitution, not find ways
around it." '
Lawton Chiles was a man of high
principles; we believe he would be
proud of his son's decision.

BARTOW As chairman of thereon, or specify a reason for


the Polk Committee for Effective
Government, I feel compelled to
respond to the recent news sto-
ries and editorials regarding the
grand jury indictment of Dewey
Smith for crimes related to fraud
and deception as well as the
grand jury's determination that
the supervisor of elections, Lori
Edwards, neglected her duties
and failed to follow the law.
I want to be clear about the
intent of our lawsuit against the
supervisor of elections. We are
asking for a temporary injunction
to stop the counting of petitions
until the court has an opportuni-
ty to clarify some of the language
in the Polk County charter and
determine if the counting of peti-
tions deserves to move forward.
Judge John Laurent has deter-
mined that other parties should
be included in the suit, so we
have amended the lawsuit to
include the Polk County commis-
sion and the Home Rule Charter
Committee.
It is indisputable that fraud
and deception contaminated the
recent petition activities of
Dewey Smith.
Dewey Smith attempted to
intimidate, cajole and bully those
who he perceives as standing in
his way. Lately, he has fixed on
Jerry Hill, our state attorney. To
Hill's credit, he has remained
focused on the law and true to his
duties, seeking justice by prose-
cuting crime and protecting the
public welfare.
The same cannot be said of
Lori Edwards. She has refused to
do her job. Her recent behavior as
supervisor of elections led the
grand jury to conclude that Ms.
Edwards "failed the voters of
Polk County" by allowing or
enabling the following violations
of law to occur:
1. Ms. Edwards allowed the
period for obtaining signatures to
exceed one year, in violation of
Polk County's charter.
2. Polk's charter states "the
sponsor shall comply with all
requirements. of general law for
political committees, and shall
file quarterly reports with the
Supervisor of Elections stating ...
the number of signatures pro-
cured." Ms. Edwards never
received, nor required, any such
reports from the sponsor.
3. Polk's charter states "The
Supervisor of Elections shall,
within sixty (60) days' after sub-
mission, verify the signatures


the invalidity of each rejected sig-
nature if the petition is rejected
for insufficiency of the number of
valid" signatures. If the petition is
rejected for insufficiency ... the
sponsor shall have an additional
thirty (30) days within which to
submit additional signatures for
verification." Ms. Edwards'
opined that a large quantity of
petitions that was submitted on
Aug. 10, 2004, constituted a suffi-
cient number of petitions. The lat-
est possible submission date
would have been Nov. 8, 2004, or
91 days after the sufficient num-
ber of petitions was originally
submitted. Ms. Edwards allowed
the sponsor to submit additional
petitions as late as Dec. 27, 2004.
4. Finally, on the issue of pay-
ment of fees, Polk's charter states
"when a sufficient number of sig-
natures is obtained is obtained,
the sponsor shall thereupon sub-
mit signed and dated forms to the
Supervisor of Elections and upon
submission shall pay all fees
required by general law." Florida
Statute 99.097 clearly states, "The
supervisor shall be paid in
advance the sum of 10 cents for
each signature checked or the
actual cost of checking such sig-
nature, whichever is less, by ...
the. person or organization sub-
mitting the petition. However, if
... organization seeking to have
an issue placed upon the ballot
cannot pay such charges without
irrposing an undue burden on
personal resources or upon the
resources otherwise available to
such ... organization, such ..
organization shall, upon written
certification of such inability
given under oath to the supervi-
sor, be entitled to have the signa-
tures verified at no charge." Ms.
Edwards should not have veri-
fied any signatures without pay-
ment or a filing of indigence. Mr.
Smith finally submitted a claim of
indigence this past week, more
than seven months after submit-
ting the first batch of petitions.
Ms. Edwards has taken the
position that she is just not
responsible. She said it was the
county attorney's job to render an
opinion on the one-year deadline
to obtain signatures and request-
ed an opinion on Dec. 29, 2004.
The county attorney gave her an
opinion in writing on Jan. 5, 2005
that stated his opinion was that
the one-year deadline had
elapsed, but that it was the super-
visor of elections' responsibility


to make that call. Ms. Edwards
ignored that opinion and allowed
additional petitions to be submit-
ted long after the deadline.
Furthermore, Ms. Edwards has
said it's not her job to interpret
the charter, but she has made
interpretations and continues to
do so. She has defined a "suffi-
cient" amount of petitions to
mean a "large quantity" of peti-
tions. It boggles the mind to see
how she can put off taking
responsibility, do her job, and
make a determination. The per-
ception is that she is more con-
cerned with Mr. Smith and the
Home Rule Charter Committee
than the citizens of Polk County
by continuing to ignore her
responsibility and refusing to
heed the grand jury's recommen-
dation and the county attorney's
opinions.

(Editor's note: This letter has been
edited for length.)


You've seen the peanut butter
commercial where the young
father makes himself an open
face peanut butter sandwich,
then folds it in half, right?
His adorable little daughter
asks why he does that, and he
says: "Because that's what my
dad always did, and I wanted to
be just like him."
She tells him that's silly, turns
her back to him, and does the
same thing.
The agency that made that
commercial should have earned
at least a million dollars, because
it's bound to have sold a billion
dollars worth of peanut butter.
All to fathers.
That is why I am a New York
Yankees fan. I enjoyed playing
baseball usually right field,
where the ball seldom gets hit -
when I was about 50 years
younger than I am now, and 20
years ago, I enjoyed watching my
son play Dixie Youth League.
Generally in right field.
As a spectator sport, I prefer
football, that outlet for repressed
feelings of violence, with cheer-
leaders for a bonus.
But Dad was a big New York
Yankees fan, and I always

Sq, V


cheered for them, for no other
reason.
I was delighted when our
daughter-in-law, Julie Knudsen,
gave Loyal (our second genera-'
tion retired right-fielder) a
Christmas gift of tickets for three
to a Spring training game.
Saturday afternoon, Loyal, my
son-in-law Jim, and I went to
Joker Marchant stadium on
Lakeland to see the Detroit Tigers
play the Yanks.
Loyal wore an "I Heart New
York" T-shirt, Jim bought a Tigers
T-shirt, and I wore my "Gator
Dad" T-shirt.
By the fourth inning, my Yanks
held an 8-to-i lead, and I won-
dered if I could beg off and go
home, since I was only about five
hours recovered from a textbook
case of the 24-hour stomach flu
virus. It's not all in the stomach.
Do not ask for details.
Nobody, I figured, had ever
trailed the Yanks by seven runs
after four innings and come back
to win, least of all the Tigers. But
I determined to stick it out, half-
inning-by-half-inning.
And while baseball is not my
favorite spectator sport, this
game was a lot of fun.

At the end of four innings,
seven groundsmen came out to
rake the basepath. When the
announcer put "YMCA" on the
PA system, they broke into the
YMCA dance. One even began
break-dancing.
Every so often, from one to
half-a-dozen players would jog
around the warning track around
the outfield, as the game was in
play, for no apparent reason.
They looked a little like streakers
who forgot to take their clothes
off.
There were great plays, and
great bloopers.
Two Tiger batters hit back-to-
back homers on two consecutive
pitches. There were several dou-
ble plays.
A Detroit right-fielder (remem-
ber, that's not where the best
players start) was so proud of a
really great catch that he watched
flat-footed as Alex Rodriguez
tagged up and loped in from
third base. A-Rod is one of the
best (and highest paid) players in
the game, and it was worth the
price of admission to watch him
at bat.

ye, Rich's


the first job I had in Atlanta and
was like a little city with its own
citizens.
I came to Atlanta as a new
bride in 1950 and went to Rich's
to apply for a job as soon as I got
unpacked. Coming to Atlanta
from Bartow, Florida, was sort of
like being thrown into a new
sophisticated world with lots of
people. My first day here, I got
lost going to the grocery store
and turned around when I saw a
sign that said, "Athens, 5 miles."
The next day, I headed for
Rich's downtown it was the
only one to apply for a job.
That was before they opened
stores in the malls. As a matter of
fact, there weren't any malls.
I had been working for the
Florida Highway Patrol before
moving to Atlanta.
Looking back, I now realize
how much Atlanta has grown
and changed. There was a sign on
Peachtree Street that gave the
current population and flashed
proudly on and off. I believe it
had just reached 100,000 in 1950.
Looking back, it was really just a
big, country town.
I went into the employment
office on Rich's fifth floor, filled
out a form, and handed it to the
man behind the desk. He looked
surprised that my first job was
with the F.B.I. in Washington and
my second one was with the
Florida Highway Patrol. He
asked if I could type, which I
could. I waited for him to ask me
if I could shoot a gun, but he did-
n't.


He sent me to the employees
cafeteria to have a cup of coffee
while he checked to see if there
was an opening where I would fit
in.
I was the only one in the cafe-
teria at the time, until a distin-
guished man came in and sat
down next to me. He had white
hair and a pin-striped suit. At the
time, I didn't know who he was
or that he was interviewing me.
I told him that I really wanted
to work at Rich's, and that I
thought it would be a wonderful
place to work. He said he just
knew I would be a valuable asset
to the store and left.
It turned out that he was Mr.
Richard Rich, himself. They prob-
ably didn't know what to do with
me at the personnel office. I!..
sent me to interview with the
ready-to-wear merchandise man-
ager, who had about 26 buyers of
women's clothes in his division. I
found out later that he had inter-
viewed a lot of potential secre-
taries and I was number 18.
He told me about all the diffi-
culties of running the ladies'
ready-to-wear division and asked
if I thought I could handle the job
as his secretary. I told him I had-
n't had a job yet that I couldn't
handle.
He said, "You're hired!"
Rich's was bought out by
Macy's and for a time was known
as Rich's/Macy's. Rich's was
finally eliminated from the name,
altogether.
I am going to miss it.


great plays.
There were four exceptions.
There was one guy behind us
who got up and booed loudly
each time A-Rod came to bat. To
the credit of the other fans, we
merely gave him a dirty look.
One fan said it best:
"That guy wasted nine bucks."
Then there were three chubby
fugitives from the "Animal
House" movie, wearing match-
ing "Yankees Suck" T-shirts, who
bellowed their two-word theme
endlessly, as if anybody cared
what they thought.
Nobody did.
I considered waving at them,
but in my post-flu exhaustion,
didn't have the energy to raise
the one finger I wanted to wave.
The score?
Oh yes, the score.
Remember, Good Guys were
leading 8-to-1 in the fourth.
The Tigers scored eight unan-
swered runs to win, 9-to-1. They
richly deserved the victory.
It was a Spring training game,
and nobody else has written
much about it. I just have.
The Tigers are entitled to that.

Spring break from school com-
bines fun with learning when
children ages 6 to 12 attend the
Young Naturalist Discovery
Days, two programs offered at
Historic Bok Sanctuary.
A day program is planned
from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Tues-
day, March 22. A slumber party
and night hike will be from 6
p.m. Thursday, March 24, to
8:30 a.m. Friday, March 25.
Children will hike the Pine
Ridge Nature Preserve Trail on
March 22. They will mark the
trail with natural materials,
scan for wildlife through binocu-
lars and create a model of the
nature trail in a jar to take
home. The cost is $12 per child


or $8 per member.
The slumber party and night
hike will be March 24. After
dark, children will hike in the
garden to attract insects with
light and sugar, look for noctur-
nal animals and make casts of
animal tracks.
The sleepover will be held in
the Gardens Activities Center.
Cost for the event is $18 per
child or $15 per member. Parent
volunteers are welcome.
Both programs are under the
direction of Marti Blackwell, en-
vironmental education coordina-
tor for the Sanctuary.

Jail

(Continued from Page 1)
inmates continuing job training
and getting experience while in
jail. "Many inmates lose their
jobs because they're incarcerat-
ed."
But while Wilkinson was in
favor of allowing the architectur-
al services of the work camp, he
was not in favor of contracting for
architectural services to increase
the bed count at the South
County Jail in Frostproof.
The proposal, which was
approved by all other commis-
sioners, would allow for the
design of phase one of an expan-
sion of 888 beds at the existing
facility.
Together, Freeman said the
jails are currently running about
500 inmates over capacity.
The renovation at the South
County Jail is expected to cost
around $65 million when all
phases are complete.
Wilkinson, who read a letter
regarding jail overcrowding writ-
ten in 1998, said he felt the sher-
iff's office budget was growing
too large.
"The budget has almost dou-
bled and has grown from 76 to 80
percent," he said. "This is the ele-
phant in the budget."
Wilkinson also wanted to dis-
cuss recidivism's effect on the
jails, but was cut off by
Chairman Jack Myers, who
asked Wilkinson to discuss the
current architectural plan only.
Both architectural plans will
be funded under correctional
impact fees. Construction plans
will come before the board sepa-
rately, after the designs are in
place.

Parade

(Continued from Page 1)
and multitudes of curious onlook-
ers were larger than ever, possi-
bly numbering in the dozens, and
conceivably even outnumbering
the number of parade partici-
pants.
Judging from past years, the
Citrus Cinderellas may throw
out strands of beads (a local St.
Patrick's Day custom stemming
largely from the fact that you can
buy beads a lot cheaper after all
the Mardi Gras parades are over)
and moon pies (a local St.
Patrick's Day- custom of even
more uncertain origin).
If you'd like more information,
that's just too bad, because there
isn't any more information.
If you'd like to sign up to par-
ticipate, you obviously have
missed the point; you don't "sign
up" for Bartow's St. Patrick's Day
Parade, you just show up and
take part.
The wearing of green is tradi-
tional.


It is estimated that Polk
County has less than 90 auto-
mated external defibrillators
(AEDs) in the community.
The 2005 Heart Gala commit-
tee hopes to change that, making
Polk County an even safer place
to live.
During this year's American
Heart Association Heart Gala,
guests will have the opportunity
to make a specific donation to
place more of the life-saving de-
vices in the community.
The Heart Gala will be held
on Friday, March 18, at Lone
Palm Golf & Country Club in
Lakeland.
AEDs are easy-to-use, com-
pact, battery-operated, light-
weight and durable devices that
treat sudden cardiac arrest by
automatically analyzing the
heart rhythm and delivering an
electric shock only when neces-
sary.
"Our EMS teams are already
equipped with AEDs; however,
we need to place these devices
into law enforcement vehicles,"
said Charles McPherson, presi-
dent and CEO of SunTrust
Bank, Mid-Florida, and chair-
man of the 2005 Polk County
Heart Gala. "Many times law
enforcement officers are the first
to arrive on the scene of someone
in cardiac arrest and we need to
make sure they have a fighting
chance to save that life."
Many businesses and organi-
zations also have made the de-
vices available for non-medical
or "lay rescue" use.
Bill Mutz and Marcy Mutz-
Wickenkamp, owners of Lake-
land Automall, recently pur-
chased three AEDs for their
dealership.
"We have 158 associates
working here and this is our
chance to potentially make a bet-
ter life for their families and
those of our customers," Mutz
said.
Cardiac arrest claims about
340,000 lives each year nation-
wide. In Florida, it is estimated
that more than 19,700 people
died from cardiac arrest last
year. When a person suffers a
sudden cardiac arrest, his
chance of survival decreases by
seven to 10 percent for each min-
ute that passes without defibril-
lation.
Mutz's advice to other busi-
nesses considering the same life-
saving purchase, "Don't wait un-
til you need an AED to purchase
one at that point it would be
too late."
Mutz plans to purchase three
additional AEDs in the near fu-
ture.

Littlejohn Fans 19 as Lady Jackets

Continue to Roll Over Opponents


By MARK KING

It was an absolutely perfect
night for softball last Friday
night at Lady Jacket Stadium on
the campus of Bartow High
School. Not a cloud in the sky, a
little nip in the air, and a rival
team, the Lake Region Thunder,
in the third base dugout as the
aroma of fresh grilled onions and
green peppers floated on the
breeze from the concessions
stand.
So it was only fitting that on
this perfect night, Bartow's sen-
ior ace, Lindsay Littlejohn,
would have a perfect night, too.
In fact, for the most part, the
only defense the Jackets needed
was Littlejohn and her catcher,
Jenna Allen, as the rocket pow-
ered right hander blew away 19
Thunder batters with strike
outs.
Yep. Nineteen K's.
In fact, Littlejohn only re-
corded 14 non-strikes as the
Thunder players never caught
up to her blazing fastball or
deadly riser. Naturally, the Bugs


won this ball game, but only by
the score of 2 0.
The Lake Region team kept
the Buzzers' base runners off the
base paths for the most part
with excellent defensive plays
from shortstop Stephanie Hen-
dricks and left fielder Amanda
Brown.
But eventually BHS was able
to push a run across in the fifth
inning.
With one out, Jerrica Sanchez
ripped a base hit to shallow right
field. After stealing second and
then advancing to third on a
fielder's choice, Mallory Butler
came to the plate.
Butler spanked a hard hit ball
to LR's Hendricks that the short-
stop mishandled, which allowed
Sanchez to rack Bartow's first
run.
A pair of Thunder boo-boos al-
lowed the second run in the bot-
tom of the sixth.
Britta Giddens led off for the
Jackets by reaching base on an
error by the second baseman.
The "itty bitty" Bug then stole
second base and was moved to


third when Whitney Little re-
corded a base hit.
Little was taken out on a run-
down between first and second
and the next batter flew out to
centerfield, giving Littlejohn two
outs and a runner on third when
she came to the plate. Littlejohn
hit a grounder that rolled under
the glove and between the legs of
the second baseman which al-
lowed Giddens to rack the final
Bug run.
Tuesday the Lady Jackets will
try to take the wind out of the
Storm when Celebration High
School blows into town. Then on
Thursday, the Ladies will host
Lake Wales in a rescheduled
game that was washed out last
Thursday. Game times are 7:30
p.m.
The JV squad will face one of
their toughest tests this season
when they take on the Frost-
proof varsity sqaud tonight at 7
p.m. at home. Then on Thurs-
day, the Baby Bugs will take on
George Jenkins at home at 5:30
p.m.

FSC Basketball Season

Ends At Hands of St. Leo


Behind a 21-point perform-
ance from JJ Turner, St. Leo
ended the Moccasins' season
with a 72-68 win at the Sun-
shine State Conference Tourna-
ment at Barry on Friday.
Turner, who was averaging
just 6.5 points per game, poured
in seven three-pointers, as the
Lions beat the Moccasins for the
second time this season and im-
proved to 13-15.
The loss gave FSC a final sea-
son record of 17-11 and marked
the first time since the 1994 SSC
Tournament that the Moccasins
lost in their first game.
St. Leo led by as many as 15
points in the first half, 26-11, be-
fore the Moccasins were able to
trim the margin to 39-31 at
halftime. The Moccasins, who
never led in the game, tied it at
55-55 with 6:29 to go on a three-
pointer by Allen Gilberry, but
the Lions regained the lead on
Brandon Lyngse's basket and
held it the rest of the way.
Ellery Boykin led FSC with
21 points in his final game. He
also had nine rebounds. Reggie

scored pinch-runner Evan Dzien-
kiewcz with the game-winning
run in the bottom of the ninth
inning to give the top-ranked
Moccasins a 4-3 win over St. An-
selm Sunday at Henley Field.
Bartow High 'School alumni
Jason Peacock led off the FSC
ninth with a pinch-hit single,
then Dzienkiewcz ran for him. A-
dam Calderone sacrificed Dzien-
kiewcz to second and Geoff
Strickland was walked inten-
tionally.
St. Anselm brought in Jeff
Keefe out of the bullpen and Diy-
orio hit his second pitch into left
center, easily scoring Dzien-
kiewcz.
Kyle DeYoung, who pitched a
perfect ninth inning with two
strikeouts, picked up his second
win of the season.
Up next, the Moccasins play
Concordia (N.Y.) on Wednesday
night at 7 p.m. at Henley Field.

is starting to make waves in
Polk County, reeling off victories
in their first six games of the
season.
This weekend, the Yellow
Jackets faced off against Gate-
way and Lake Region on the
road. Bartow was able to edge
out both opponents in the late
innings thanks in part to the
seniors on the squad and the
play'ofjunior Jack Murphy.
Thursday night, the Jackets
perfect record was put to the test
as the Lake Region Thunder
took the Jackets all the way to
the final inning, for a 2-1 Bartow
win.
Drew Collier got the win after
RBI doubles from seniors Lezon


Dixon and M.J. Wilson put the
Jackets ahead for good in this
closely fought game.
On Friday night, the Jackets
traveled to Gateway, where they
rallied from a 3-3 deadlock to
win the game 5-3 in the final in-
ning.
Murphy got the win on the
mound and Mark Donhaiser
came in for the save.
On the offensive end, Murphy
contributed with a big double,
while Wilson cranked out a
home run.
Up next, the Yellow Jackets
will return to Bill Phebus Field
for a five-game homestand, the
first two of which will be on
Tuesday and Friday against
Haines City and then Gateway.
The games will be at 7:30 p.m.
