Suggestions Sought


For Naming New Park


Got an idea for naming the
park that will be developed on the
vacant land on the east side of the
Bartow High School campus?
The city and the school board
Share working on a joint undertak-
ing to build an eight-foot-wide
-walking/jogging path around the
.pond. with the path and other
..facilities to be shared by the
school and the community.
SLighted with antique-style
'streetlights, the park (and the
student parking lot on East
Stuart Street) will be available to
the public after school hours.
The Bartow city commission
will name the park, and the city's
recreation advisory board is seek-
ing suggestions. from the public
for names for the park.
Two names have been suggest-
ed thus far, and other ideas are
being sought.
The names already put forth
are Jacob Summerlin Park and
Wilsons Park.


Jacob Summerlin, a pioneer
Bartowan, gave 40 acres for the
establishment of schools, 40 acres
to be used to make Bartow the
county seat, and 20 acres each to
the Methodist and Baptist
churches. For many years, what
is now Bartow High School car-
ried his name, Summerlin
Institute. The school was
renamed Bartow High School
when Summerlin Institute and
Union Academy High School were
merged in the integration of the
public school system.
The Wilson proposal comes
from the name by which the prop-
erty was known for decades,
Wilsons Pasture. Owned for years
by the Wilson family, the property
was sold years ago to Trifon
Houvardas, who originally
planned to build a subdivision on
it, but later decided to sell the 17-
acre site to the school board for
expansion of the BHS campus.
The school in turn transferred


ownership of the land around the
lake to the city, because state law
requires ponds on school board to
be fenced. The city has no such
requirement.
The pond in the middle of the
property is a stormwater catch-
basin, and the water level varies
according to rainfall.
McDonald Construction
already is scooping muck and
decayed vegetation from the bot-
tom of the pond.
The Bartow Rotary Club will
pay for a lakeside gazebo, the
club's local commemoration of the
100th anniversary of the found-
ing of Rotary International.
Other organizations will be
approached about the possibility
of sponsoring benches, picnic
tables, and other amenities, said
Barbara Lawn-Newell, city parks
and recreation director.

for redesign of Main Street and
to deal with inquiries from down-
town merchants will be held on
Tuesday, March 29, at 5:30 p.m.

a presentation on plans will
begin at 6, followed by a question


and answer session.
Questions of interest to all
participants will be answered at
the forum, while questions about
the impact of the project on indi-
vidual merchants will be referred
to a representative of either the
engineering firm of the contrac-
-tnor- ,f-ie-acni-. n.o discussion,
according to James Q, Duane,
executive director of Main Street
Bartow and the Community
Redevelopment Agency.


Work on the project is sched-
uled to begin on Monday, April 4,
the day after the Bloomin' Arts
Festival, and to be completed in
November, prior to the Winter
Crafts Fair.
Plans are under way for a
downtown merehantspromotion '

Annexation, Land Use


Ordinances Are Passed


Eleven ordinances relating to
annexation and land use on
parcels of property north and
east of Bartow were passed on
first reading by the city commis-
sion Monday night.
Adjacent property owners,
who have urged the city to
require low density housing on
the parcels, did not attend the
meeting, and all the ordinances
were passed with little discus-
sion.
Four of the ordinances deal
with annexation of parcels rang-
ing in size from 15 to 324.6 acres,
the other seven with assignment
of land use categories to -these
and other parcels.
Most of the land use ordi-
nances those relating to


parcels of 10 acres or more -
must be reviewed by the Florida
Dept. of Community Affairs
before final action is taken by the
city, but the annexation ordi-
nances will come up for a public
hearing and final action on April
4.
Public hearings on the ordi-
nances sent to DCA for review
probably will take place in June,
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
told the commission.
At this point, the land use des-
ignation on the newly-annexed
parcels is "low density residen-
tial," (LDR) which can be any-
thing from...- the city's most
dense singlafafiy'district, to R-
1-5A, the city's lowest density
zoning. City officials have said


they anticipate that developers
will seek R-1 zoning for most of
the "low density residential"
parcels.
I I.. -..- are the individual ordi-
nances, and the probable public
hearing dates:
Annexation of 16.7 acres of
property on Gandy Road between
Peace River Estates Units 1 and
2. Public hearing: April 4.
Assignmnent of Il)I land use
to that parcel. Public hearing:
June.
Assignment of LDR land use
to 64 acres of James property on
the south end of the Silver
Companies development between

Florida State Society Daugh-
ters of the American Revolution
State Regent Jean Mann of Fer-
nandina Beach visited the Bar-
tow Chapter DAR earlier this
month.
Special program for the chap-
ter meeting was the presentation
of the chapter American History
Essay winner for the fifth grade,
Gilbert Olinger, III, a student at
First Methodist School, and son
of Lisa and Gilbert Olinger, Jr.
The topic for this year's con-
test was "Along the Trail with
Lewis and Clark and the Corps
of Discovery, May 1804-Sept.
1806."
Students were restricted to
accounts of the events that may
have happened other than those
written by Lewis and Clark.
In order to imagine the things
that could have been experi-
enced while on the expedition,
Gilbert chose a diary record from
the perspective of Seaman, a dog
belonging to Meriwether Lewis.
Not only were recognized histori-
cal happenings recorded, but ob-
servation about prairie dogs, buf-
falo, and bear were added in the.
report of the travels.
Gilbert received a National
Society DAR American History
Essay medal and a winner's cer-
tificate. He also was presented
with a United States Bicenten-
nial Silver Uncirculated Coin
Set, 1776-1976.
He was accompanied by
Jackie Stoltz, principal of First
Methodist School; Andrea Payne,
fifth grade teacher; his father;
and his grandmother, Yvonne
Olinger.
The state regent has been
traveling throughout Florida vis-
iting the 105 DAR chapters, with
a total of more than 8,700 mem-
bers. She brought information on
the statewide activities and the
progress on her project of estab-
lishing more education scholar-
ships for students in Florida.
Bartow Chapter members re-
ceiving recognition for more than
50 years of dedicated service to
the DAR were Martha Ellen Eil-


Polk Life and Learning Princi-
pal Jean O'Dell spoke to the
members of the Noon Lions Club
on Tuesday, March 22.
The school serves students
ages 3 to 21 who have special
needs.
"The school may be among the
best kept secrets in the Polk
County School system," she said.
The mission statement of the
school is "learning for all, what-
ever it takes," she said. The
school currently serves emotion-
ally impaired students in kinder-
garten through 12th grade, stu-
dents with mental retardation
and students ages 3 to 21 who
are severely mentally impaired.
Mrs. O'Dell said student en-
rollment may range from 50 to
60, with 35 teachers on staff.
One of her favorite questions
to ask applicants is "can you love
them?" she said.
All the current teachers on
staff have been with the school
at least five years and most par-
ents have had students at the
school for a similar period of
time, she said.
Many of the children have


birth defects or were in some
way abused, causing behavioral
and learning problems, she said.
"Technology has impacted
these students," she said. "We
have computers in each room for
teachers and students to practice
math and reading skills."
At the Lions Club meeting,
she demonstrated some of the
electronic devices used at the
school, including touch screens,
palm pilots, electronic world
globes, book readers and instruc-
tional toy and communications
equipment for the mute. Many of
the devices included special acti-
vation controls for those who
lack normal motor skills.
Mrs. O'Dell was introduced by
Paul Puckett.
Fred Egli presided over the
business meeting and announced
there will be no luncheon meet-
ing on March 29.

Children With Chronic Illness May Face

Difficult Transition To Adult Care


From the University of
Florida

For young patients who grow
to adulthood with a chronic ill-
ness, leaving behind the pedia-
trician who may have saved
their lives can be a tough transi-
tion.
More than half a million chil-
dren with special health-care
needs will turn 18 this year, the
first generation to reach adult-
hood since sweeping medical ad-
vances ensured an unprece-
dented number would survive
congenital conditions that until
recently would have killed them.
The influx is straining an al-
ready burdened health-care sys-
tem, and patients and their phy-
sicians are feeling the added
stress, according to a study by
researchers at the University of
Florida's Institute for Child
Health Policy appearing in the
current issue of "Pediatrics."
"We are looking at the very
beginning of that wave, because
this is the first generation to
turn 18 since the technology and
treatments have allowed them to
survive to adulthood," said lead
researcher John Reiss, Ph.D.,
policy and program affairs chief
at UF's Institute for Child
Health Policy. "That number will
grow, and this %ill put phenome-
nal pressure on adult medicine."
Doctors liken it to a culture
clash, as adolescents and fami-
lies adjust to a very different
style of health care.
Young patients must say
goodbye to the physicians they
trust and who often took a team
approach to their care by incor-
porating, the opinions of many
specialists to optimize a treat-
ment plan for ailments such as
cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease
or congenital heart conditions.
Many adult practitioners tend
to work more independently and
are less familiar with how to
manage these complex cases be-
cause they haven't routinely en-
countered them in standard
practice. The issue can be costly
for patients, both physically and
financially, said UF research as-


sociate Robert Gibson, Ph.D.
"It is like waking up in France
one day," Gibson said. "You don't
speak French and you have no
idea how to get around the city
and you say, 'Wait a second.
How did I get here?"'
Pediatric hospital systems or
practices generally stop serving
patients at the ages of 18 or 21,
and about 600,000 patients with
chronic illnesses are now reach-
ing adulthood every year, Reiss
said. Nearly 40 percent of the
patients living with childhood-
onset cystic fibrosis, for example,
are 18 or older, according to the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Na-
tional Patient Registry.
As these patients age, their
care can be complicated by re-
productive issues and other ail-
ments, such as diabetes.
Past studies have shown the
transition isn't easy even for the
average healthy adult often
because of lack of insurance -
and many drop out of the health-
care system until they become
sick.
However, a smooth shift is vi-
tal for young adults with chronic
illness, who cannot afford to ex-
perience a lapse in care, Reiss
said.
Yet these patients often must
switch doctors at a time when
they, too, are least likely to be
covered by health insurance, in
part because of their higher
rates of underemployment and
unemployment.
Until recently, physicians
may have handled one or two
such individuals a year, and it
was possible to work around the
system, Reiss said.
"You didn't need to think
about a population-based ap-
proach to handling the problem.
You could take an individual pa-
tient-based approach," Reiss
said.
To leam how patients move
into adult medical care, UF re-
searchers conducted 34 focus
groups, involving 143 patients,
families and health providers, to
gather information about partici-
pants-experiences with health-
care transitions.


Church Service
Center Needs
Donations

Bartow's Church Service Cen-
ter is in need of food donations.
Last summer's hurricanes de-
pleted the supply of staples,
John M. Phillips, president of
the board of directors, said.
The charity is currently seek-
ing staples, all types of canned
vegetables, except for green
beans and corn, canned fruits
and canned meats. Peanut but-
ter, jelly, pasta, juices, coffee, tea
and bread also are needed.
Food may be dropped of at the
center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
The center closes at noon on
Wednesday and is not open Sat-
urday or Sunday.
For more information, call
533-5822.



'Beauty And

The Beast' Set

Students from Santa Fe
Catholic High School will per-
form "Beauty and the Beast" on
Friday, April 9, and Saturday,
April 10, at 7 p.m.
Performances will be held in
the Martin Power Center at the
school.
Tickets are $5.
For more information, call
665-4188.


Study participants also an-
swered questions about which
factors made transitions success-
ful or unsuccessful.
Researchers said many pa-
tients reported differences in
care, such as difficulty in receiv-
ing adequate pain relief after
making the transition into adult
practice.
Others were concerned about
quality and comprehensiveness
of care; some were the first pa-
tient their adult physician had
ever seen with their particular
health condition.
Researchers also found that a
mutual trust forms among pedi-
atric patients, their families and
their health-care providers.
Saying goodbye to the doctor
who has handled their care since
they were diagnosed can be diffi-
cult for patients, and that bond
can present a bairier to effec-
tively transitioning into adult-
oriented medicine.
Patients and families sur-
veyed said they perceived pediat-
ric staff to be more available for
questions and emotional sup-
port.
Patients and families whose
outlook focused on the future
were more likely to experience a
smooth transition, the study
showed. Gibson, who conducted
the study's data analysis, said it
was necessary for patients and
their families to look at the
change as part of the develop-
mental process.
"The people that we talked to
who were most successful under-
stood transition from the mo-
ment the child received the diag-
nosis Gibson said. "Just like
with a healthy child, you antici-
pate they are going to go to col-
lege or live independently in a
community. There are things
you do developmentally through-
out their childhood to prepare
them for that early on."
UF researchers say the re-
sults suggest the medical com-
munity may need to create a
more consumer-friendly medical
system that would break down
barriers to age-appropriate care,
improve doctor-patient commu-
nication and incorporate a proto-
col for handling the transition.
Internists and other adult
practitioners, meanwhile, should
talk to pediatncians about pa-
tients' conditions and treatment
strategies at the time they
switch practices, Reiss said.
Elizabeth Tong, M.S., a clini-
cal research nurse at the Univer-
sity of California, San Francis-
co's division of pediatric cardiol-
ogy and an associate clinical pro-
fessor at UCSF's School of Nurs-
ing, said Reiss's research spot-
lights the need for health profes-
sionals to tailor specific interven-
tions to this population.
"Young adults with chronic
health conditions is an emerging
and growing group of patients,
and health professionals as a
group are still relatively inexpe-
rienced in understanding what
are the medical, social and finan-
cial needs of young adults," Tong
said. "Qualitative analysis work
by Dr. Reiss and. others allows
us to directly hear from patients
what their needs are and how
the current system is or is not
meeting their needs.

"This input from patients pro-
vides the necessary groundwork
for developing appropriate and
meaningful interventions and
care."
Educating patients, their
families and medical personnel
is necessary to address the needs
of this growing population of spe-
cial needs patients, Reiss said.
"It may require the medical
system to reorient itself toward
the needs of patient, rather than
the provider," he said, "to the
benefit of everyone."

Act Now To Avoid


Terri Schiavo's Nightmare


The spectacle surrounding the life and
impending death of Terri Schiavo is a
tragedy for members of her family on both
sides of the issue, a nightmare for all
involved.
It has brought out the worst in people at
all levels of government, and of zealots on
both sides.
Most of all, it has underscored the need
for advance directives, variously known as
living wills, advance care plans, and other
terms.
The directives are (or can be) simple doc-
uments, in which healthy people (or
patients about to undergo surgery) can
spell out their wishes regarding what care
should be extended or withheld if
they are unlikely to recover.
They should be executed after due
deliberation and discussion with family
and loved ones, and perhaps consultation
with physician, clergy and/or legal coun-
sel. But they should be executed.
Below is one such document, created by
Project Grace, a Clearwater-based organi-
zation. There are numerous other sources
of prototype advance directives.
We publish this one as an example of the
types of issues that should be dealt with.
While it is not our intention that this one


be clipped and saved, that is an option for
our readers.
A better action would be to go to
www.projectgrace.org and download the
form, along with two pages of instructions.
That's where we found this one (with help
from the Bartow Community Healthcare
Foundation). One page deals with the
meaning of the terms used, and another
with directions on how to use and distrib-
ute the document.
It is too late for Terri Schiavo and her
family to benefit from an advance care
directive; for millions of families who have
watched this drama play out, it is not too
late to learn from their nightmare.

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

Deserters Are Not Political Refugees


World travelers tend to sniff
when you say you visited Canada
and declare: "Canada's not a for-
eign country."
Indeed, our two countries do
have so much in common that
unless you visit French-speaking
Quebec, it's hard to tell you've
left the U. S., except for the clean-
liness of the Canadian country-
side, the loonies and toonies
(Canadian one dollar and two
dollar coins), and the fact that
they really do say "Eh" a lot.
That's okay, we say "Y'all" a
lot, and even New Jersey-
Americans find that hard to fol-
low.
That said, our respective gov-
ernments inexplicably seem to
find themselves at odds much
more often than our respective
populations.
Canada did not support our
invasion of Iraq in America's first
pre-emptive war, and in that sen-
timent, they will find many hold-
ing similar beliefs on this side of
the border.
Nonetheless, Americans


should be pleased that last week,
Canada refused to grant
"refugee" status to an AWOL sol-
dier who fled from Fort Bragg,
N. C., to Canada when his unit
was preparing for deployment to
Iraq.
Jeremy Hinzman, a 26-year-
old private first class in the 82nd
Airborne Division, applied for
"political asylum" in Canada,
claiming that he would face "per-
secution or cruel and unusual
punishment" if he returned to the
United States.
Canada's Immigration and
Refugee Board said that while he
might face unemployment or
social discrimination, "the treat-
ment does not amount to a viola-
tion of a fundamental human
right, and the harm is not seri-
ous."
Actually, Hinzman and seven
other soldiers who fled to Canada
and declared themselves to be
political refugees face courtmar-
tial for desertion and five years in
prison. The military takes a dim
view of those who flee their fel-


low soldiers in time of peril.
After the United States went to
war in Iraq, Hinzman attempted
to establish conscientious objec-
tor status for himself.
Our country has a proud her-
itage of recognizing those who
are conscientious objectors to
war. Contrary to popular belief,
that status does not excuse them
from military service; it only
excuses them from the opportu-
nity to carry a weapon. They can
still be required to serve in non-
combatant status, and some COs
have performed heroically as
combat medics.
When service in the armed
forces was compulsory, it was
understandable that a number of
young men who truly could not
bring themselves to take up arms
against their fellow man under
any circumstances ended up as
draftees. A certain number of
them were properly granted CO
status.
But we've had an all-volunteer
force. for more than a generation.
Every member of today's armed


forces joined voluntarily.
And airborne forces are among
the Army's elite "first to go" com-
bat units; every soldier intelligent
enough to get into the service
knows that.
It was not until Hinzman's
unit was alerted for duty in
Afghanistan in 2002 that he dis-
covered that he could find no
inner peace if he were assigned to
do what soldiers do: to go to war
at the order of the Commander in
Chief.
Young people who join the
armed forces, whether active or
reserve, "to get a college scholar-
ship" have been watching too
many re-runs of "Private
Benjamin."
The job of soldiers is to fight
wars, when deemed necessary by
their nation.
Those who cut and run are not
political refugees; they are mili-
tary deserters.
Our friends in Canada were
correct even given their popu-
lar opposition to the war in Iraq
- to recognize the difference.

OUR READERS SAY


Evolution and Logic


BARTOW The debate about
evolution and its place in public
school curriculum rages on. I
have watched it wax and wane
over the years.
Since the debate overlaps the
realms of religion and politics I
know better than to try to con-
vince anyone of the rightness of
either point of view teach evo-
lution or not, teach creationism or
not. I know better because I
learned some time ago that argu-
ing religious or political tenets is
futile, most people's minds being
already made up. Moreover, it
seems to me that people's politics
is usually also a religion.
I might, however, make a con-
tribution by making a logical
point. It is one which, curiously,
nobody else seems to have made.
This point centers around a
word, the word OR. It is some-
times used in an exclusive sense,
e.g. in "Shall we go fishing or hik-
ing?" the OR is exclusive because
we cannot do both things at once.
But OR can also be used in the


inclusive sense, e.g., in "Is this
object useful or ornamental?" the
OR is inclusive because an object
can be both useful and ornamen-
tal.
It is a common logical error to


interpret the word
OR as exclusive
when it is or might
be inclusive, and
that is happening
in the debate about
teaching evolution.
Should we teach
evolution OR cre-
ationism? Why
couldn't we do
both? I think that
possibility is sel-
dom, if ever, con-
sidered because of
our habit of using
OR mainly in the
exclusive sense.
Certainly, a text-
book could be
written containing
a chapter on evolu-
tion and a chapter


on creationism as well. It is also a
possibility that everything in the
universe started as a result of cre-
ation by a divine force but that
species evolved since that time. I
just happen to believe that some-


thing like that did happen.
In any case, the teaching of cre-
ationism and the teaching of evo-
lution need not be considered as
mutually exclusive.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Help! My Address Book Has Disappeared!


For my birthday last month,
my son gave me a wonderfully
complicated computer that will
do practically anything except
give the dog a bath.
It has gone too far, though, and
-I resent it. It has eaten my address
book.
My address book that is sup-
posed to pop up and send this
column to The Polk County
Democrat and The Fort Meade
Leader and another button for
Friends and Family. Luckily, it
does send my column to S. L.
Frisbie, but not to anyone else.
How can I manage without my


address book? There are actually
friends and family who want to
read my column every week. It
was easy to send the folks on this
list a copy every week just by
putting them on a separate list,
highlighting it and pushing a but-
ton. Now when I push the same
button, nothing happens.
Blake sent me a copy of my
address book, but it came out in
blue. All the e-mail addresses are
now in blue on this computer.
Why?
Am I blue? Yes. There must be
some way to have everything
print in black on this machine. I


don't care about all of the ads
from people wanting to sell me
face cream and dog collars being
in color. I just erase them and go
on with my life. Or try to.
This is a really wonderful, high
class computer made by IBM
where Blake works. It is about the
best computer available on the
market today.
I managed to get out my col-
umn for the last two weeks to S.L.
for the papers, but when I tried to
send it to friends and family in
my address book, it didn't work.
I will try again this week. If
you have any suggestions, let me


know.
When I get this problem
solved, you will all know because
I will send you copies and bring
you up to date. Or maybe not.
This column is a cry for help
and an explanation to those who
have inquired if I was still writ-
ing, in the hospital, or worse. The
answer to those questions is, Yes,
No, and No.
I will spend the next week try-
ing t9 straighten this out. Wish
tie luck.

toms of this most common sleep
complaint and the importance of
proper diagnosis and treatment."
Insomnia is the most preva-
lent sleep problem for Americais
adults. According to NSF polls,
nearly six out of 10 men and
women 126 million people -
experience at least one symptom
of insomnia a few nights a week.
Although women are more
likely to experience insomnia
symptoms than men, far too
many adults ignore the symp-
toms: difficulty falling asleep,
waking too early and not being
able to get back to sleep, waking
a lot during the night, and wak-
ing feeling unrefreshed.
"Insomnia symptoms are too
important to ignore," said Rich-

"When unaddressed or un-
treated, insomnia can become a
.ong-lasting condition and pro-
duce problems."

Teen Trendsetters Now

Accepting Applications


The application process has
opened for the Teen Trendset-
ters Reading Mentors program,
announced Jim Warford, chan-
cellor of K-12 for the Florida De-
partment of Education.
The program recruits high
school students to start men-
toring clubs within their schools
and recruit classmates to mentor
third-graders in reading. The
program is managed by the non-
profit Volunteer Florida Founda-
tion.
"Of the many effective pro-
grams we have working to help
struggling young readers, this is
one of the best," said Chancellor
Warford. "Children look up to,
teenagers and Trendsetters
make the most of this hero-wor-
ship status in helping younger
children improve their reading
skills, while earning community
service points that are applicable
to many scholarships. It is a
positive learning experience for
both the mentors and the men-
tees."
New Trendsetters for the
2005-06 academic year will be
selected through a competitive
essay process.
"Since we began in 2002, the
Trendsetter program has made a
positive impact on both the chil-
dren and teens involved in it,"
said Liza McFadden, President
