City Postpones Action


On PCOC Appointment


Small Cars, Big Speed


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher
Divided over whether to try to
appoint another member to the
board of the Polk County
Opportunity Council or to sever
the city's affiliation with the com-
munity action agency, Bartow city
commissioners decided on
Monday to do neither, for now.
Instead, they will wait for the
results of a federal investigation
into the agency's operations, and
may advertise for applicants who
are interested in serving on the
agency's board of directors.
That was a compromise
between Mayor Leo Longworth,
who wanted the city to move for-
ward with an appointment, and a
growing sentiment on the com-
mission to give up its right to
appoint a member to the board. -
The city commission is one of
five government agencies with
the authority to appoint a mem-
ber to the board, and last year, it
named David Hallock as its
appointee. However, the PCOC
board refused to seat Hallock,
insisting that he submit a resume
and asserting that the existing
board could accept or reject his
appointment.
That led to negotiations
between City Atty. George
Dunlap and PCOC's lawyer, nego-
tiations that Dunlap told the com-
mission probably would have led

Preparing for a disaster they
hope will never come again, key
players in the recovery from the
three hurricanes that devastated
Polk County last year will devel-
op a new disaster recovery plan,
based on lessons learned from
that experience.
I Larry Alexander, Polk County
public safety director, outlined
plans for the new document to the
county commission.
The Recovery Operations
Center will be reactivated on
March 28 for a study of lessons
learned in the recovery from hur-
ricanes Charley, Frances and
Jeanne, he said.
He said the county's emer-
gency response plan will be
rewritten based on the findings of
that study.
Polk County was "the first
county in recorded history" to be
hit by the eye of three hurricanes
in one year, he said.
Polk had a loss of 14 lives,
Alexander said. Some 55,000
structures were damaged, and
nearly half the county's residents
lost electric service.
Approximately 1.8 million cubic
yards of debris was created.
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
noted that some buildings still
have temporary "blue roofs," and
asked if help will be available to
put new tarps over damaged roofs
before the rainy season begins.
Alexander said that roofing


A car boot or f-unlg sale will
again be included in the Main
Street Bartow next monthly
antique. fair, March 12, from 8
a.m. to 3 p.m.
The boot sale will allow indi-
viduals or organizations with a
few things to sell, to make some
money. Those who don't want vis-
itors traipsing all over their yard
also may benefit from the event.
Antique dealers will be set up
on the sidewalks along Main
Street, and the car booters will be
on "Bootsale Boulevard" on North
Central Avenue.
Boot sellers will set up with
their cars' trunks toward the
sidewalk. Items may be sold


PCOC's lawyer to recommend
that the board seat Hallock.
"He acknowledged there is
nothing in the by-laws to allow
them not to seat him," Dunlap
said.
In the meantime, Hallock
applied for appointment to
Bartow's Community
Redevelopment Agency, and was
selected by the commission for
that post from a field of five appli-
cants. Given a choice of the PCOC
post or the CRA appointment,
Hallock chose the CRA board.
Dunlap advised the commis-
sion that PCOC was waiting for
the city "to make another nomi-
nation if you see fit." He suggest-
ed the city could advertise for
applicants, as it did for the CRA
vacancy.
'You may want to wait until
the investigation shakes out," he
said.
Congressman Adam Putnam
sparked an investigation into sev-
eral no-bid purchases made by
the agency. Since then, it has
been revealed that PCOC applied
for several large FEMA grants,
making questionable claims of
hurricane damage to its facilities.
Commissioner Cal Adams said:
"We've got no business belonging
to it until they get things
straightened out."
Commissioner Rosie
Thornburg said it might be diffi-
cult to find someone willing to


materials are in short supply, and
contractors have not been able to
keep up with the need for repairs.
Alexander was critical of what
he called "FEMA bean counters"
for disallowing expenses long
after they were incurred.
The Federal Emergency
Management Agency's guidance
to him during recovery operations
was "Do what you think is right,
not what you think FEMA will
reimburse you for," Alexander
said. As public safety director,
Alexander was in charge of coun-
tywide recovery operations.
"FEMA is trying to discount
anything they can," he told the
commission.
"We did some things we were
never tasked to do before," he
said. "We put patients in police
cars. Hospital officials told us six
of those people would not have
survived" had that action not
been taken.
The county's 800 megahertz
radio communication system
never failed, even as wireless
telephone communications broke
down, Alexander said.
'The worst decision is indeci-
sion," Commission Chm. Jack
Myers said, supporting
Alexander's actions taken under
pressure of the disaster recovery.
Myers predicted that members
of Congress "will do the right
thing" in mandating reimburse-
ment to local governments.
Alexander said he is retiring
on March 31, but will continue to
assist in evaluating the county's

small tables on the sidewalk.
Sellers will not need to register
beforehand, but should arrive
early .,to get good spots and the
most buyers.
Vehicles are required to be in
place and have paid the $10 fee
by 10:30 a.m.
Booth spaces for the antique
fair also are $10. These spaces
may be reserved by contacting
Missy at Mr. and Mrs. Mac's
Farm Antiques at 534-8282 or

The fair and boot sale are held
the second Saturday of each
month.


serve.
"How do we know they would
accept our appointee?"
Commissioner Pat Huff asked.
"It appeared they were going to
accept Dave (Hallock),"
Longworth replied. "I think we
need to appoint someone."
Commissioner Andy Laurent
said he would rather not make an
appointment now.
"The things we are reading
about are allegations," Longworth
said. "They're going through the
investigation now.
"Business is still going on as
usual.
"They need some help. We need
to get somebody over there on
that board."
He then suggested that the
commission advertise for appli-
cants to serve on the board.
"If we don't get any applicants,
we need to go back to the drawing
board," he said.
Adams and Mrs. Thornburg
agreed to advertise for applicants,
but Huff suggested "that sends
out the message that we're ready
to make an appointment."
Longworth asked Dunlap to
monitor the progress of the feder-
al investigation into PCOC, and
advise the commission when it is
time to consider making an
appointment.
"I hope we do appoint some-
body and help get them straight-
ened out," he said.


response to the hurricanes.
Fred Murphy, assistant school
superintendent, said "govern-
ment worked together" in a fash-
ion many people didn't believe
possible.
"Let's not focus on the nega-
tive," he urged, but benefit from
lessons learned.
Schools were closed for 14 days
and had $11 million in damage.
Every building sustained some
damage, and 10 percent were
extensively damaged, he said.
One school reopened in a church.
"Every agency in the county
helped get the school system back
into operation," he added.
"We're going to learn from
what went well and from what
didn't go so well," County Mgr.
Mike Herr said.
Herr was high in his praise of
Alexander's performance during
the recovery.
He called Alexander "one of the
most creative department direc-
tors on our staff.
"He demonstrated decisiveness
with compassion, and that is the
heart of a leader," he said.
On Alexander's retirement,
David Cash, emergency manage-
ment director, will assume his
duties on an interim basis, Herr

IB Student 'Doubles Up'



For Perfection on SATs


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

It takes a huge effort to bowl a
300 or pitch a perfect game. You
only get once chance to be perfect.
Luckily for Bartow
International senior Genevieve
Russo, 18, you get more than one
shot at a perfect SAT score. Miss
Russo scored an 800 on the verbal
portion in May and an 800 on
math in October. Final SAT
scores are compiled by combining


a student's best scores in each
section.
"I've always done better on
math on standardized tests, so I
think (in May) I overcompensated
and studied a lot for verbal. I got
an 800 so my mom was like 'why
don't you take it again and go for
the math?"'" Miss Russo said.
"So I took it again and really
studied for math and kind of did-
n't worry about the verbal and I
got it."
Miss Russo is one of two


AS ONE OF TWO BARTOW International Baccalaureate stu-
dents to score a perfect 1,600 on the SAT this year, Genevieve Russo
put in a lot of study time to get a perfect 800 on the verbal and math
portions of the test. (Staff photo by Rustin Dwyer)


Bartow IB students to achieve
perfection on the test. Along with
classmate Neal Bhutiani, she is
part of an elite group. Less than
one percent of the 1.4 million stu-
dents nationally who take the test
each year are able score to 1600.
Miss Russo can claim the
honor of being the first Bartow IB
student to achieve perfection this
year, as she got her dual 800's
before Bhutiani. Despite this, she
still gives him a lot of respect.
"I said 'no, don't (take the test
again), you're going to beat me',"
as if one could beat a perfect
score.
But Bhutiani did the closest
thing he could to beating perfec-
tion he got double 800's at the
same time.
"He did it all at once. His (per-
fect score) was better," she sighed.
Right now, Miss Russo's future
plans are simple, but wide open.
"Um, college somewhere,
probably doing undergraduate
research on something," she said
when asked where she would be
in a couple of years.
"I've been to a couple of schools
so far, but I'm kind of waiting just
to see where I get in."
While finding the right college
appears to be an ordeal for her,
picking a major may be just as
difficult.
"I don't really know what I
want to study. Perhaps something
in the sciences. I'm in my third
year of chemistry right now so I
might look into that."
She is also considering eco-
nomics and history, but said she
is nowhere close to a decision.
Miss Russo lives in Lakeland
with her mother and step father
Melody and John Foley. Her
brother, Harry Russo, 16, is a stu-
dent at Harrison Academy of the
Arts in Lakeland where he is
involved in the drama program.
While at Bartow High School,
Miss Russo ran cross country for
four years, and soccer and track
for three years but doesn't plan on
sports being part of her collegiate
career.
"I'll just try to hit the gym


every once in a while and that's
it," she joked.
To prepare for the test, Miss
Russo brushed up on her verbal
skills with a novel called '"Tooth
and Nail," which had words that
were likely to be on the SATs in
bold print and definitions in the
back. She also completed a lot of
practice tests to acclimate herself
to how SATs are given and grad-
ed.
Even with all the help, Miss
Russo said a lot of her success
came from just being in Bartow
IB program.
"Our teachers don't teach to it
(the SAT) or anything, it's just
that our education and curricu-
lum is broad enough that we're
well prepared," she said.
For potential SAT takers, she
recommends taking practice
tests. She said they are a good
way to know what to expect on
the test and quickly recognize
what a question is asking.
'That way,"she said, "you don't
have to spend a lot of time read-
ing and rereading the directions."


No More

Free Ride

For City
No more free ride for the city.
That was the word from the
Polk County school board this
year when the city executed its
annual lease of four school buses
for use in Bartow's Summer
recreation program.
In past years, the city has paid
a token $1 for the buses.
This year, the city will pay
$1.39 per mile driven, as well as
paying for fuel and drivers for
the buses.
"This requirement places us in
compliance with Florida
Statutes," Asst. School Supt.
Fred Murphy said in a memo to
the city.
The city will lease the buses
from May 25 to July 22.

MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER Scott Humston will be the fea-
tured speaker during the 16th annual Just Say No luncheon at the
Bartow Civic Center on April 14 at noon. (Photo provided)

'Just Say No' Events

Kick-Off April 14


The 16th Annual Just Say No
activities are planned for Thurs-
day, April 14, by the Just Say No
Committee of the Greater Bar-
tow Chamber of Commerce.
The event activities will fea-
ture a new format this year. This
long standing Bartow tradition
will now conclude with a commu-
nity luncheon at the Bartow
Civic Center instead of begin-
ning with a breakfast.
The day will commence with
the annual parade starting at
Country Chicken & Fish, 901
East Main Street, at 9:30 a.m.
The parade will come down Main
Street and turn left on Broadway
as it continues to Bartow High
School.
Once at Bartow High School,
activities will include motiva-
tional speaker Scott Humston,
special performances by school
groups and the traditional Just
Say No pep rally.
The rally includes Bartow
area fifth grade students from
Alturas Elementary, Anna
Woodbury Elementary, Bartow
Elementary Academy, Eagle
Lake Elementary, First Method-
ist School, Floral Avenue Ele-
mentary, Gause Riverside Ele-
mentary, Gibbons Street Ele-
mentary, Highland City Elemen-
tary, The Oaks School, Pinewood
Elementary, Stephens Elemen-
tary, Wahneta Elementary and
Word of Life Christian School.
The public is welcome to at-
tend the day's final event, the


Just Say No Community Lunch-
eon at the Bartow Civic Center.
Humston also will speak at the
luncheon, which begins at noon.
Overcoming a speech-related
birth defect to become a full time
speaker and performer, Hum-
ston now devotes his life to the
art of educating through enter-
tainment.
Humston holds a B.A. in com-
munication studies and dramatic
arts, and has been awarded pro-
fessional and community awards
for his encouragement to young
people. He entertains, motivates,
and inspires hundreds of audi-
ences each year.
Humston has been performing
in front of audiences for 15
years.
"I've always had a desire to
inspire people," he said. "I was
born with a birth defect known
as a cleft palate. Chances are
that you, too, know someone
with this defect. I have had six
surgeries, and years of speech
classes, and lots of braces.
"I overcame this defect in part
because my parents, teachers,
pastors and others encouraged
and inspired me, and taught me
that I could accomplish great
things."
Cost for the lunch is $7 per
person.
Tickets and more information
are available at the Chamber,
510 N. Broadway Ave., or by
calling 533-7125.

mattresses, and yard waste. Ve-
hicle tires and building debris
will not be exempt. Industrial

not eligible for the fee waiver.
Twice a year, the city urges

rate garbage from yard trash.
Garbage is described as all
kitchen refuse, animal and vege-
table matter, small household
items, cans, paper goods, boxes,
liquid containers, water hoses
and small appliances. Garbage
should only be put out on gar-
bage pick-up days and placed in
plastic bags or garbage contain-
ers.
Yard trash is all accumula-
tions of grass clippings or leaves,
which must be placed in plastic
bags or containerized. It also in-
cludes vines, shrubbery, tree
limbs, tree toppings and similar
material. Yard trash must be
placed on the curb or city right-
of-way in front of the residence


and not on a vacant lot or park-
way.
Trash should not cover or hide
a fire hydrant or black access to
a utility pole.
Other trash that must be
separated includes large appli-
ances, tires, furniture, building
materials, roofing, large tree
limbs and tree trunks in excess
of 6" in diameter. These items
are classified as special pick-up
items and are subject to charges
in addition to the monthly gar-
bage fees.
To arrange a special pick-up,
or for more information, call the
solid waste department at 534-

Bartow Should FindFind Strong


Leadership for PCOC


The Bartow city commission's deci-
sion to wait until a federal investigation
into operations of the Polk County
Opportunity Council is completed
before attempting to appoint its repre-
sentative on the PCOC board is proba-
bly a reasonable one.
That decision was reached as a com-
promise between Mayor Leo
Longworth, a past PCOC chairman of
the board, who wanted to go ahead and
name an appointee, and other comnunis-
sioners, who are on the verge of severing
Bartow's relationship with the trouble-
plagued community action agency.
While the latter sentiment is under-
standable, it is not in the public's best
interests.
With a $10 million budget, the respon-
sibility of preparing hundreds of Head
Start children for school, and a less than
stellar record of stewardship of public
funds, PCOC needs a strong board of
directors. Five of its 15 board members
are appointed by public agencies,
including one by the Bartow city com-
mission.
If there ever were a thankless position,
it is this one.
David Hallock, appointed by the
Bartow city commission as its.represen-
tative on the board, was refused a seat
by the PCOC board members in our
opinion for exactly the reason he was
Bartow's selection.
He asks tough questions, and he does-
n't accept the status quo. What he lacks
in tact, he makes up for in directness. He
would have been a thorn in the side of
the agency, or at the risk of mixing
metaphors, a pain in its backside.
City Atty. George Dunlap told the city
commission he had about gotten the,
agency's lawyer to recommend seating
Hallock, but Hallock decided to apply


instead to serve on the board of Bartow's
Community Redevelopment Agency.
Under Florida law, he can't be a board
member of both PCOC and the CRA.
So city commissioners are back to the
process of finding a representative,
hopefully one with lallock's penchant
for getting straight answers. They have
decided to advertise for applicants, a
process which brought forward several
strong contenders for the CRA board.
There are other community leaders
with the skills and interests to be strong
*board members. Hopefully one or more
will apply for the appointment.
We hope the city commission will
maintain the city's involvement in the
PCOC board, and will find a strong
board member.
What's in it for the city of Bartow?
Not much.
Just the opportunity to help insure
that millions of dollars of tax money are
being spent properly to help hundreds
of clients. The taxpayers, the agency's
clients, and the PCOC .board itself need
strong board members to keep things on
track.
The Bartow city commission should
do all in its power. to achieved that objec-
tive.

In the past few days, one
group of Bartowans has 1 ma. d a
show of caution, and anuiillt a
show of class


When I got into the news
reporting business 45 years ago,
one of the tragic stories that
reporters had to report all too
often was of a small child -
sometimes more than one child
- becoming trapped in a dis-
carded refrigerator and suffocat-


Back in those days, refrigerator
doors had catches, not magnetic
gaskets. Refrigerators didn't last
as long back then, and were dis-
carded by the curbside fairly
often.
Tragically, little kids crawled
into them to hide, and closed the
door. Newspaper and law
enforcement agencies regularly


publicized the danger, but still
people discarded refrigerators
without removing the doors or
knocking the latching mecha-
nisms off with a sledgehammer.
Bartow is nearing the end of its
nine-day Clean-Up Week, during
which the city waives its usual
charges for hauling away almost
any oversize load, including
refrigerators.
We have observed several at
curbside
Even though the death-trap
latches are a thing of the past, a
magnetic gasket can still get a
powerful grip.
Every refrigerator that we've
seen has had the door either
taped or lashed tightly shut, or
removed altogether.
Such a display of caution is a
lifesaver for small children.

In Monday's issue, we pub-
lished a Page 1 photo of a large
banner signed by high school
ROTC students from throughout
the county, wishing Bartow's unit
in the Florida National Guard -
Battery A, Second Battalion, 116th
Field Artillery good luck on its
upcoming tour of duty in
Afghanistan.
It was a show of class by high
school youngsters, some of
whom undoubtedly will follow
in the steps of the Guardsmen,
becoming the active Army sol-
diers and the Guard militiamen
of tomorrow.
The ROTC banner was not a
political statement on behalf of
President Bush; it was an expres-
sion of support for part-time sol-
diers who have been pressed into
full-time duty on the other side of
the world.


It was a show of class, and
we're proud that this county wide
initiative had its genesis in
Bartow

line in my column about the

attended with my son and imy
son-in-law last Saturday.
I acknowledged that iven
though I have been a more-or-less
Yankees fan since the cradle, I
was proud of Detroit for coming
from an 8-to-1 fourth inning
deficit to score eight unanswered
runs and win the game.
The final score, of course, was
9-to-8, not 9-to-1, as I reported in
an otherwise fairly well written
column.

Historical Museum


WILL THE CIVIC Club and Belcher build- Leta Wright)
ings next feel the wrecking ball? (Photo by


By LETA WRIGHT


o The yard sale last Friday and
Saturday at Floyd and Joyce De-
Vane's home went over big time.
The volunteers collected hun-
dreds of items and the crowds
came.
The proceeds from the sale
will be donated by the Historical
Society Team to the Relay For
Life cancer drive.
We thank all those who
helped with the sale and bought
items.
I wonder if the Civic Club and
Joe Belcher buildings will be the
next to feel the wrecking ball. If
so, that whole Main Street Lang-
ford block will be vacant.
It would be great to have
about 12 businesses move into
Fort Meade and occupy those va-
cant stores on Main Street. We
do have two stores with signs
that say they are in the process'
of opening. As of this writing, I
don't know when.
Since Fort Meade is the oldest
town in Polk County, it would be
great to fill it with antique
stores, similar to Arcadia, Dun-


nellon and Dade City.
The second coat of paint went
on the bandstand ramp bannis-
ter. It is beautiful. Do ride by
and take a look.
I took a flying trip to Wash-
ington, D.C., last weekend, ac-
companied by my daughter-in-
law and granddaughter, Janet
and Natalie Wright.
After tending to business, we
went on a whirlwind sightseeing
tour all over the city.
We were fortunate to have a
private driver, who made it pos-
sible for us to visit the different
monuments and buildings at a
faster pace.
It snowed eight inches on
Monday. It was just beautiful,
and very different from the 80
degree weather we left in Fort
Meade.
We ate at a number of top
notch restaurants such as the
Monocle, Willard Room, Ceiba,
Prime Rib, Occidental and Old
Ebbitt Grill.
Our nation's capital is such a
beautiful city with all the majes-
tic government buildings built of
marble and precious stones with


Panel Discussion on

Infrastructure Gap Set


Citizens for Proper Planning
(C4PP) is hosting a panel discus-
sion on the gap in infrastructure
funds in Polk County on Tues-
day, March 15, from 6:30 to 8:30
p.m. at Polk Museum of Art, 800
E. Palmetto St., Lakeland.
The educational forum and in-
formative panel discussion is en-
titled, "Funding bur Infrastruc-
ture Gap."
According to the C4PP, not in-
cluding schools, Polk County is
faced with a shortfall of almost
$600 million in roads, parks and
recreation, which amounts to
about $1200 for each man,
woman, and child.
The gap will continue to grow
until a solution is found, said a
C4PP spokesman.
One of the C4PP's estimates


shows that residential construc-
tion alone is increasing the gap
by an average of nearly $3 mil-
lion per month.
Panel members who will dis-
cuss possible immediate steps
and long range solutions for this
deficit are:
Bob English, Polk County
commissioner
Al Whittle, Florida Biparti-
san Civic Affairs Group
Larry Durrence, Polk Vision,
executive board'
Frank O'Reilly, Polk County
School Board
Deming Cowles, C4PP and
Florida Bipartisan member, will
moderate.

rector, at C4PP@aol.com


those huge columns. Everywhere
is so impressive and makes you
feel so good to be an American.
We all will be glad when this
week is over. The students at
school have had to struggle
though all those tests. When I
was teaching, I always dreaded
the test week for the students. I
felt sorry for them being under
such pressure.
I hope some day all these
tests will be abolished, and we'll
let the teacher be comfortable
teaching his subject.
In last week's paper, Jughaid
said to Uncle Snuffy, "It ain't
fair! Why do I hafta go to school
and learn a bunch of useless
junk?"
"Yo're a lucky boy, Jughaid .
knowing lots of stuff that'll
never come in handy is the mark
of an educated feller," Uncle
Snuff said.
If you have not joined the Fort
Meade Historical Society, we in-
vite you to do so. It is an inter-
esting organization.
We work together to preserve
the history of our city.

said.
Many of the contracts
approved by the county commis-
sion after the fact should have
been negotiated in advance, and
that is being done in preparation
for future disasters, Herr said.
"We may never need to exer-
cise those contracts, but we need
to have them in place."
Commissioner Paul Senft said
Congress is holding hearings on
debris removal, including the
matter of access to private prop-
erty for debris removal.
"Gated communities are a big
issue," Alexander said.
"Debris is an issue that doesn't
go away."
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson said one problem is
that FEMA reimburses on the
basis of cubic yards of debris
removed, not on weight. That
becomes an incentive to remove
brush rather than stumps and
tree trunks, he said.

Who We Are
Girl Scouts of the USA is the world's preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls-all girls-
where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girlshbuild character and skills for success in the
real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve
them' all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own
potential and self-worth.
Today there are 3.8 million Girl Scouts-2.9 million girl members and 986,000 adult members.
Founder Juliette Gordon Low organized the first group of Girl Scouts on March 12,1912, in Savannah,
Georgia. Girl Scouts of the USA was chartered by the United States Congress on March 16,1950.
Through membership in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, GSUSA is part of a
worldwide family of 8.5 million girls and adults in 144 countries.

What We Do
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through a myriad of
enriching experiences, such as extraordinary field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community ser-
vice projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow courageous and
strong. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increas-.
ing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the
foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their
abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.

Our Structure
Girl Scouting is open to all girls ages 5-17. Girls participate through more than 2 6,co:, troops d<.i .
groups in the United States and in close to 90 countries through Girl Scouts Overseas. Through
more than 300 local Girl Scout councils, the opportunity for Girl Scout mrn'ribr rhip '..it: in-every- .
comer of the U.S.A. More than 50 million women in the U.S. have enjoyed Girl Scouting during their
childhood. Daisy Girl Scouts are 5-6 years old, Brownie Girl Scouts are 6-8 years old, Junior Girl
Scouts are 8-11 years old. Girls, ages 11-17, may participate through the innovative STUDIO 2BsM
approach.
Approximately 99 percent of all adults in Girl .Scouting are volunteers. Women and men interested
in volunteering in a variety of capacities are encouraged to contact their local Girl Scout council.

Our Birthday
Happy Birthday Girl Scouts! This month, over 3.8 million
girls and adults across the globe celebrate the fun,
friendship, and power of girls together. Ninety-two years
ago, Juliette Gordon Low made her historic phone call to
her cousin, Nina Pape, "Come right over! I've got
something for the girls of Savannah, and all of America..."
Today, Girl Scouts continue to play a significant role in the
lives of girls and in American history.
Girl Scout Week: March 7-13
Girl Scouts' 92nd Birthday: March 12
e Girl Scout Sabbath: March 13


The Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.


The Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place,; and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

pate in teen panels and work-
shops, and counsel other teens.


Currently team members offer
workshops during an afterschool
program at Boone Middle School,
hold two teen summits each year
and host a monthly show, "Teen
Talk," on the Polk County Gov-
ernment Channel.
The team members will meet
once a month on Sunday during
the school year.
The team also is looking for
several active adult members, as
all activities must have adult su-
pervision and generally have
transportation needs.
Adults also will participate in
the events.
For more information on the
team and to request an applica-
tion, call Teresa Schile at 297-
3043.

USF SafetyFlorida and the
USF OSHA Training Institute
are sponsoring four separate
one-day construction executive
safety seminars.
The seminars are designed to
help construction companies
avoid OSHA fines, cut liability
costs, and trim workers' comp
premiums.
The seminars will be from
8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. in Tampa
on March 29, Orlando on March
30, West Palm Beach on April 5,
and Fort Lauderdale on April 6.
Cost is $250 per person.
Each Seminar will begin with
a panel presentation on OSHA's
enforcement focus for 2005 by
Florida's three OSHA Area Di-
rectors: James Borders, Les
Grove, and Luis Santiago.
Construction liability attor-
neys from Kelly, Kronenberg will
step attendees through the deci-
sions that can help to reduce li-
ability risks. Andrew Sabolic,
chief of the Bureau of Compli-
ance, Florida Division of Work-

Progress Energy Florida will
return more than $9 million to
its customers as part of the reve-
nue-sharing provision in the
company's current rate agree-
ment.
A Progress Energy residential
customer using 12,000-kilowatt
hours (or averaging 1,000 kWh)
over one calendar year will re-
ceive a one-time credit of about
$3.36 on the March 2005 electric
bill.
Progress Energy's current
rate agreement took effect May
1, 2002, arid expires at year-end
2005. The agreement reduced
the company' base rates to a
level similar to those from 1983
through an annual $125 million
reduction.
In addition, the company
agreed to refund of two-thirds of
its revenues when they exceed a
pre-determined threshold each
year. Customers will have saved
$500 million over the life of the
agreement.

: USDA: Florida Citrus Crop

Continues To Decrease


The March citrus crop fore-
cast for the 2004-2005 season
from the U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture (USDA) shows a de-
crease from the February esti-
mate.
The USDA expects the state's
orange crop to produce 153 mil-
lion boxes during the 2004-05
season, a decrease of nine mil-
lion from February. The forecast
for early and midseason varie-
ties is down three million boxes
to a total of 81 million boxes,
which includes 2.5 million boxes
of navels. This decrease is in re-
sponse to utilization figures that
are short of previous estimates.
The Valencia estimate is also
down six million boxes to 72 mil-
lion boxes this season due to his-
torically small fruit size and con-
tinued higher than normal fruit

drop.
"So far the estimated decrease
in the citrus crop has not im-
pacted the price that consumers
are paying for orange juice at the
store," said Andy LaVigne, ex-
ecutive vice-president/CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual. "How-
ever, as inventories continue to
decrease, the higher fruit prices
may eventually work their way
through to the consumers."
The grapefruit estimate re-
mains unchanged at 13 million
boxes. For specialty fruit, the
USDA predicts 700,000 boxes of
temples; 1.5 million boxes of tan-
gelos; and 4.5 million boxes of
tangerines, including 2.5 million
boxes of early varieties and two
million boxes of honeys.

Lady Jackets Surrender First Runs

Of Season in Rout of Celebration


By MARK KING

In a week riddled with rain
from Mother Nature, it was a
Storm of a softball nature that
blew into One Bug Place on
Tuesday night to score the first
runs of the season against the
Jacket juggernauts.
But the Celebration Storm
had little else to celebrate as the
Bugs rallied to win by the score
of 13-3, improving their season
record to 7 0. Jerrica Sanchez
recorded the win for 'Tow.
It didn't take long for the
Storm to prove to BHS that they
are much improved from the last
time the two teams tangled. In
the top of the first inning, the
lead-off batter for Celebration,
shortstop Robyn Bronson, took
first on a walk, then stole second
base.
When the speedster at-
tempted to steal third, the throw
from the Jackets' catcher to the


third baseman went past her
target and winded up in left
field, allowing the Storm player
to whip across the plate for the
first run of the game.
It wasn't until the bottom of
the second inning that the Bugs
answered the challenge. With
one out, Jerrica Sanchez reached
base with a walk, then later
stole second and third base.
After the next Buzzer batter
grounded out, Rachael Jackson
drilled a base hit to score San-
chez from third to tie the game
for Bartow.
The Bugs sent 10 hatters to
the plate in the third inning to
plate six runs. They added an-
other in the fourth and five more
in the sixth to finish out their of-
fensive production.
Britta Giddens was a perfect
three for three at the plate with
one double and an RBI. Kara Ru-
tenbar was three for four with a
double and two RBIs, while Ra-


chael Jackson was two for three
with a triple and two RBIs. Staci
Fernandez belted a triple of her
own and a double while racking
an RBI.
Other Bug batters with hits
were Whitney Little, Elizabeth
Howell, Jerrica Sanchez, Ally
Connally (RBI) and Courtney
Latham (two RBIs).
Originally scheduled for to-
night, the make-up game with
Lake Wales has been resched-
uled to Monday night at 7:30
p.m. because the LW boys' bas-
ketball team is in the state tour-
nament.
But there is still softball ac-
tion at The Hive as the junior
varsity Jackets try to shoot down
the Eagles of George Jenkins
High School in a 5:30 p.m.
match-up.
On Friday, the Bugs board
the bus and travel to Kathleen to
meet the Red Devils in a 7:30
p.m. game.


Applications Simplified for

Quota and Special Hunts


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) will begin accepting ap-
plications for quota hunt permits
and special-opportunity hunt
permits for next year's hunting
seasons through its Total Licens-
ing System (TLS) this summer.
This means hunters will sub-
mit their applications at any one
of the more than 600 license
agents who sell hunting and
fishing licenses, all county tax
collectors' offices or from FWC's
website, MyFWC.com. For the
first time since 1975, hunters
will not mail application forms to
Tallahassee to apply for the
quota hunt permits.
"Handling thousands of paper
applications and dealing with
numerous telephone complaints
from hunters who missed ran-
dom drawings because the postal
service took longer than ex-
pected to deliver their applica-
tions was cumbersome and inef-
ficient," said Eddie White,
FWC's quota hunt coordinator.
"We have been issuing licenses
and permits through the TLS
since 2003, and this is a planned
progression to streamline the
hunt permit application proc-
ess."
Hunters seeking special-op-
portunity hunt permits will be
the first to use this new applica-
tion process. Between May 1 and
June 15, hunters will be able to
submit as many $5 special-op-
portunity applications as they
would like through license
agents, county tax collectors' of-
fices or online at MyFWC.com.
Application forms will be avail-
able at all FWC regional offices


beginning April 20.
"Once the random drawing is
completed, we will send invoices
to successful applicants," White
said. "They then take the invoice
to any license agent, pay a per-
mit fee by the specified deadline
and walk out with permit in
hand. If one chooses to pay on-
line, delivery of the permit will
take seven to 10 days."
Hunters seeking quota hunt
permits can apply from June 1-
11 at license vendors, county tax
collectors' offices or online at
MyFWC.com. Application forms
will be available at all tax collec-
tors' offices and FWC regional of-
fices beginning May 15. These
forms are still necessary to pro-
vide license agents with hunt
choices, dates and personal in-
formation.
Remaining unissued quota
permits will be made available
directly from license agents,
county tax collectors' offices and
online at MyFWC.com on a first-
come, first-served basis once the
random drawing has been com-
pleted.
The first change in the system
hunters will notice is that stick-
ers, tabs and photocopies of li-
censes are no longer required
with the application. The TLS
will verify that hunters have
valid wildlife management area
permits when they apply. If they
do not have the proper license or
permit, they may obtain one
where they apply.
The TLS is expected to drasti-
cally reduce the time hunters
have to wait for the results of
the random drawings.


Five-Year Fishing License

Now Comes With Gift Bag


Now's a good time for Flor-
ida residents to buy a five-year
freshwater fishing license.
The first 3,000 anglers to
buy the $61.50 license will
save up to $20 in fees over the
five years, and will automati-
cally get $80 worth of free
hooks, lures, fishing line,
magazines and other goodies
like T-shirts and fishing towels
via mail within a few weeks.
Also included are $250 in cu-
pons toward boating gear.
Licenses are available at
county tax collectors' offices, li-


cense agents, online at
MyFWC.com or over the phone
at 1-888-FISH FLORIDA. Li-
cense sellers collect fees of $2
to $4.83 in addition to the cost
of the license.
Florida is the premier fish-
ing destination hosting more
than three million resident
and nine million non-resident
anglers each year, qualifying it
as the Fishing Capital of the
World.

MyFWC.com.


Designing of the field for the
2005 inaugural season of the

Dale Pantelakis of Sport De-
signs International Inc., flew in
from St. George, Utah, and spent
endless hours perfecting the de-


signs on the field. Along with the
Lakeland ThunderBolts and the
NIFL logos, it also includes the

Winless Hornets Shock Unbeaten

Jackets With a Mercy Rule Win


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

After a six-game winning
streak, the Bartow High School
baseball team was performing
beyond expectations. Despite
some lackluster hitting, the
young Yellow Jackets had ridden
clutch pitching to an unbeaten
season through six games.
That all came crashing down
on Tuesday, when the once win-
less Haines City Hornets (1-4)
came into Bill Phebus Field and
put eight runs on the board in
the top of the first inning, effec-
tively ending the game before
Bartow even got to bat.
The Hornets went on to defeat
Bartow (6-1) by a final score of
10-0 in five innings, evoking the
10-run mercy rule.
"We finally came to a tee,"
said Bartow Head Coa'ch Eric
Danapilis. "This time it just
showed everything we've got to
keep on working on to get better.
Any team can come in here and
beat us and that's the game of
baseball."
Sophomore pitcher Brandon
Patterson was coming off a qual-
ity start, but failed to find suc-
cess against Haines City. Patter-
son worked two-thirds of an in-
ning and was roughed up for


I


.1~
.., *k~II


eight runs in that short span of
time. He wasn't helped much by
his defense, who committed four
or the game's five errors in the
first inning.
Junior pitcher Derek Darby
came in to relive Patterson and
quickly got off to a good start.
Patterson held the Hornets
scoreless through the fourth in-
ning, retiring the first 10 batters
he faced and striking out four.
"My curve ball was working
good and my fast ball was paint-
ing the corners. Everything just
flowed."
But after four innings of
work, Darby's high arcing curve
ball began to wear down his arm.
"I just pitched as strong as I
could, but my arm got a little
tired after throwing 60 pitches,"
he said.
As Darby started to tire, the
Haines City designated hitter,
Steve Conally, who weighs in at
more than 260 pounds, got all
over a low velocity fast ball for a
crushing home run. Conally
ripped the ball well over the cen-
terfield fence for the solo shot.
Darby was tagged for another
run after Bartow's fifth error of
the game allowed Art Gray to
reach home safely.
Offensively, the Yellow Jack-
ets were held in check by a well-


I-. -
,g~ '~g
4 R~'


thrown game for Haines City
pitcher Charlie Jones. He
worked all five innings for the
Hornets and held Bartow to just
five hits.
The Yellow Jackets were able
to get a runner in scoring posi-
tion in the second and fourth in-
nings, but both times with two
outs, Bartow was unable to con-
vert.
The Jackets finished the game
with no runs on five hits, com-
mitted five errors and left four
on base. Haines City scored 10
runs in five innings on five hits
and left five on base.
"Hopefully this is a learning
lesson," said Danapilis. "Hope-
fully this is the thing that turns
the tide. We'll see how they react
on Friday when they come back,
and that's a big thing."
Next up for the Jackets is a
rematch with Gateway High
School at home on Friday at 7:30
p.m.

Are You a
Satisfied Customer?
One of the prime requirements for any successful
business are satisfied.customers. Those in the busi-
ness world are keenly aware that. satisfied cus-
tomer will most likely return to them .inr the future,
and that they will recommend their products and
services to others. To be a i:sti-fied satisfied cus-
tomer, we need to be treated fairly and honestly, and
in a civilized manner; we do not like being taken
advantage of, cheated or ridiculed in any way.
Likewise, on a personal level, we should also strive to
have satisfied customers. Everyone we, come in con-
tact with is somewhat of a customer and we should
be selling our friendship, good ..i1l and cheerfulness.
The Bible tells us to treat others as we want them to
treat us, and when dealing with others this "Golden
Rule" is necessary for us to have and keep enjoyable
relationships. Dissension in one's family, or in the
workplace, or with anyone we deal with, is contrary
to the way our Lord wants us to live our lives. And
although it is not always easy to reflect God's good-
will to others, when we are cordial. to others, we
receive enjoyment and we are blessed by extending
God's love.
