Man Arrested for Killing Father .


After Argument Over A Hat


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

A Bartow man has been arrest-
ed for second degree murder in
the death of his father on
Thursday.
Jerome Kent Reese, Sr., 47, is
accused of killing his father,
Willie Reese, 73, both of 955
Magnolia Street, Bartow Police
Detective David Reynolds report-
ed.
Another son, Tonnye Reese,
found his father when he went to
check on him about 2:30 p.m. he
told police he saw blood on the
front porch, and found his father
lying on his back just inside the
door. He also saw blood on his
father's face and clothes, and
noticed he wasn't breathing. He
then went next door and asked a
neighbor to call for an ambulance.
Reese told police he saw two
sticks and a broken beer bottle in
the driveway, which he said was
"odd." Police discovered that the
sticks were actually a wooden
shovel handle, with the end bro-
ken off, and an old axe handle.
The items were impounded as evi-
dence.
Jerome Reese, Sr., told police
he awoke Thursday about 6:30
a.m. and decided to go to the
"alley," slang for Hughes Place
and Fifth Avenue, riding his bicy-
cle. Jerome said a sedan pulled up
near him, with two men in it. One

A jury found 29-year-old
Monica Hope Jenkins, formerly of
Fort Meade, guilty last week of
stealing $50,000 or more from
Sonnys' Bar-B-Q in Bartow
between 1999 and 2000.
Jenkins, who had worked as
head cashier at the eatery, was
remanded into custody Thursday
after the jury convicted her of
scheming to defraud and grand
theft.
She was originally arrested in
2001, after then restaurant
Manager Kenny Congdon report-
ed to Bartow police that he
believed Jenkins was "holding"
tickets so they wouldn't be print-
ed by the cash register.
Congdon had researched the
daily totals and found several
tickets that were not printed,
which totaled a "high amount of


said that Jerome's father had
slashed the man's wife's tires.
Jerome also claimed that a
'woman told him his father had
been "acting crazy" and was
involved in a confrontation with
the two men. Jerome also said
another woman told him the
same thing. He told police he had-
n't been home all day until he
heard the ambulance and saw it
was stopping at his house.
However, police interviewed
the two women, who said that
while they had seen Willie Reese,
they had not witnessed any con-
frontation and had not seen a
sedan, Reynolds reported. Both
said Jerome Reese had actually
told them there had been a con-
frontation.
According to police, the sus-
pect's son, Jerome Kent Reese,
Jr., saw what actually happened.
About 10:30 p.m. Thursday,
Reese, Jr., drove to his grandfa-
ther's house and saw his father
and grandfather out front argu-
ing. Willie Reese was holding the
axe handle and Jerome, Sr., was
wearing heavy black gloves.
The two were arguing about a
hat, which Jerome, Sr., said his
father had stolen from his room,
Reynolds said. Willie Reese tried
to go inside several times, but his
son pushed him on the chest to
keep him out.
Jerome, Jr., said he would
drive Willie to Tonnye's house,


the Margaret Clark Auditorium
at the north end of the high
school. A reception, sponsored by
Mosaic, will follow the program at
the school cafeteria.

Mrs. McKennie, a native
Bartowan, received her elemen-
tary and secondary education at
Union Academy.
After graduating in 1942, she
enrolled at Florida Agricultural
and Mechanical College, where
she majored in health and physi-
cal education. She participated in
basketball and track.
In 1987, Mrs. McKennie was
inducted into Florida A&M's
Sports Hall of Fame.
Mrs. McKennie received her
undergraduate degree from
Florida A&M College in 1946, and
earned a master's degree in
health and physical education
from Tennessee State University
in 1956.
She began her teaching career
in Bartow.
The B.E.S.T.T. Hall of Fame
citation reads in part:
"As a young educator, she felt
strongly that students could build
life-long values by developing
positive self worth, a strong sense
of self respect, and moral integri-


currency," and determined that
Jenkins was "the only employee
able to do these type of transac-
tions."
In her position as head cashier,
Congdon said at the time,
Jenkins had opportunities to con-
ceal money while in the back
office of the business while she
was alone counting it.
Bartow police detectives sub-
poenaed Jenkins' checking and
savings account records, which
showed that she had deposited
$90,462.62 for the years 1999 and
2000, while reporting a
$14,802.67 income to the Internal
Revenue Service on her W-2 form,
and she had deposited $3,845.54
in a separate savings account.
Detectives then examined
restaurant sales tickets from
1999 and 2000, determining that
$93,245.21 had been stolen.
Jenkins was fired by (ongdon
on Jan. 1, 200t. She then went to


but before getting in the car,
Willie threw the hat in a garbage
can near the road. Hhis grandson
told him to give the hat back,
which he tried to do, but Jerome,
Sr., wouldn't take it and they
started arguing again, according
to the arrest report. Willie threw
the hat back in the garbage, and,
still carrying the axe handle, got
back in his grandson's car.
Jerome, Jr., dropped his grandfa-
ther off at Tonnye Reese's house
and left.
Jerome, Jr., saw his father on
Friday and said he was "acting
strangely."
He told police his father was
the aggressor during the argu-
ment on Thursday, and that his
grandfather "had grabbed the axe
handle to defend himself against
his father." He also said it was
unusual to see his father weari-
ang black gloves.
He told police he believed his
father had killed his grandfather,
Reynolds said.
Neighbors also heard the argu-
ment, and one said she heard
Jerome, Sr., say several times he
was going to kill the victim.
In another interview with
police, Jerome, Sr., confirmed the
argument and gave police con-
sent to search the house, who
found the gloves in his bedroom.
An autopsy by the medical
examiner showed that Willie
Nelson died from blunt force trau-


ty. Mrs. McKennie was a role
model to her students and worked
hard to instill these qualities in
them.
"Mrs. McKennie taught for
more than 36 years, beginning.at
Union Academy, her alma mater.
She has been able to reach out to.
the community through her ser-
vice. Mrs. McKennie feels that
her greatest achievement is see-
ing her former students grow to
become contributing citizens and
leaders of Bartow, Polk County
and the entire U.S."
In retirement, she does volun-
teer work for her church and com-
munity.

Jackson presently serves as
chief of coalition coordination for
U.S. Central Command at
MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa.
In that capacity, he directs coordi-
nation among the senior national
representatives of 61 coalition
nations at CENTCOM headquar-
ters.
A 1966 graduate of Sunimerlin
Institute, he received his under-,
graduate degree from Florida
State University in 1970. During
his junior year at Florida State,
he was accepted to the Naval
Aviation Officer Candidate School


work as a waitress at Cleveland
Heights Golf Course in.Lakeland,
where she was arrested.
Jenkins could face up to 30
years in prison for the thefts.


ma, Dr. Stephen Nelson said.
Detectives David Wyant and
William Lawson went back to the
Reese home Friday afternoon to
arrest Jerome Reese, Sr., who
ran. The detectives apprehended
him after a brief struggle.
While police tried to put him
inside the patrol car, Reese strug-
gled violently and destroyed the
interior door panel of the cruiser.
Damage was estimated at about
$350.
Jerome Reese, Sr., is being
held in Polk County Jail on a $1
million blanket bond for second
degree murder, battery on a per-
son over 65, criminal mischeif
and resisting an officer without
violence.

OUR READERS SAY

All Presidents Should Have Gone


BARTOW America can be
proud that a delegation com-
posed of three living American
Presidents attended the funeral
Sof Pope John Paul II in Rome.
They represent 'a great nation
* which wishes to pay honor and
respect to a man beloved by the
World.


However, America has missed
a significant historical opportuni-
ty the opportunity to be repre-
sented by four living Presidents.
Surely, an American President
should take precedence over any
other person in the composition
of such a delegation. This lack of
judgment and insensitivity is an


irrevocable error and a missed
historical opportunity.
The world does notice these
lapses of judgment, particularly
when they involve this great
nation of America. Can't we do
better?

FRANK J. ROUSE


This newspaper welcomes letters from its readers. Letters must be signed, and the
writer's name will appear with the letter. Letters must be written specifically to this
newspaper, and are subject to editingfor length and libel. No poems, please.


Who among us did not get a
wry chuckle out of the story last
week about the Tampa gas station
that was not posting its gasoline
prices because the sign wasn't
designed to accept a numeral 2 as
the first number in the price?
And who could feel anything
but total sympathy for the gaso-
line company, which said it will
cost $15,000 to modify the sign to
accept a price of two bucks and
change for a gallon of gas?
Quickly, somebody, let's set up
a sympathy fund for America's
refineries so they can post $2-plus
gasoline prices.
Or. uh ... if it's that painful,
they could drop the price.
The misfortunes of gasoline
companies that are unable to post
today's record high gasoline
prices brought back gasoline
memories of yesteryear, a time


when gasoline sold for 30-some-
thing cents a gallon, at a place
called a service station.
It was called a service station
because in addition to pumping a
few bucks worth of gas, the atten-
dant would check your oil and
radiator, clean your windshield,
and if you asked, check your tire
pressure and add air if needed.
"Pay at the pump" meant that
you handed the guy a $5 bill and
he took it inside the station, then
came back with your change.
It was not long after we started
our Fort Meade edition now
The Fort Meade Leader that
we got a call from our Fort Meade
receptionist one day.
The word was all over Fort
Meade, she told us: Gasoline is
going up to 50 cents a gallon this
weekend; go gas up your car
today!


Gasoline at 50 cents a gallon?
Not in this lifetime. Or at least not
that weekend.
But a few weeks later, gas had
indeed hit half a buck, and before
you knew it, there was a shortage
- I still refer to it as a contrived
shortage and we could only
buy gasoline on our designated
day of the week, and then only
the amount allowed by whatever
rationing plan was in effect. The
plan changed every time the
county commission met.
Gas prices continued to rise,
and in a problem prophetic of
today's signs that won't handle a
2 as the first price figure, gas
pumps couldn't be set for a price
of more than 99.9 cents a gallon.
Enterprising operators found a
simple solution: they charged
twice the amount shown on the
pump; they would set the pump


at say 60 cents a gallon, and
charge $1.20 by doubling what
the pump showed.
That was the year that our
brigade executive officer
announced to Florida National
Guard officers at Camp Blanding
for Summer camp that we better
plan to remain at camp over the
middle weekend, because gas
had reached $1.50 a gallon, and
marauding bands of gasoline-
starved Guardsmen might be
roving Blanding instead of going
home for the weekend.
We didn't, and they didn't.
No place to hang a "2" on the
gas station signs?
Not to worry.
America has coped with vexa-
tious fuel problems in the past,
and we'll weather this one.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Ode To a Commode


S"Copyrighted Material

04 Syndicated Content

Available from Commercial News Providers"


I have had occasion this week
to remember Miss Margaret
Green's English class at
Summerlin Institute, where she
taught with great enthusiasm and
joy.
It's too bad that every English
class cannot be taught by a Miss
Margaret. She was an inspiration
to me and I'm sure to the other
students.
She explained words like ono-
matopoeia and things like odes
and essays.
She occasionally asked us to
write an original essay, play, or an
ode to someone. I wrote, "Ode to
a Commode." That is the only
ode I have ever written. I don't
remember why I chose that sub-
ject, it is'probably because no one


else ever wrote one.
It went like' this:
"I pressed the handle, the
water flowed,
S"I thought the darned thing
would explode,"
The rest of it has faded into
memory. I don't know why; it's a
shame, really. I got an "A" on it,
but there was no comment from
Miss Margaret, only a stern look.
I hadn't thought about com-
modes in years. It is not a word in
common usage. I had plenty of
reason to think about it last week,
though.
My son, Blake, asked me what
I wanted for my birthday last
year and I told him I needed a
new toilet for the back bathroom,
as the one there was old and had


come loose from the floor.
"No problem," he said and
immediately
Same over, picked me up, and
we drove to the Hardware Store
For Everything.
We looked over all of the mod-
els available here were about
200 and brought one home. It
was sleek, well sculpted and a
beautiful thing to see.
Blake took it to the back bath-
room, took the old toilet out and
installed the new one. I was real-
ly pleased with it, until I tried to
get out of the shower that night.
The new toilet took up an addi-
tional 12 inches from the wall and
I found it was like an acrobatic
exercise trying to get.out of the
shower. ,I finally decided that it


had to go.
I called Mr. Fixit and explained
the situation to him. He came out
in his van that must contain every
tool ever invented and took me
out to the Hardware Store For
Everything. We bought a toilet
that looked about half the size of
the one Blake had given me. The
one Blake had given me had an
elongated bowl and the new one
didn't.
What it did have was room to
get out of the shower without a
whole lot of contortions and there
is 14 inches more between the toi-
let and wall.
I gave it to Mr. Fixit and he
thought it was just lovely.

Traps Waste Heat From Power Plants NAMI To Hold Public Meeting


Obituaries


By AARON HOOVER
University of Florida

Desalination is often touted
as one solution to the world's wa-
ter woes, but current desalina-
tion plants tend to hog energy.
Now University of Florida re-
searchers have developed a tech-
nology that can tap waste heat
from electrical power plants as
its main source of energy, an ad-
vance that could significantly re-
duce the cost of desalination in
some parts of the world.
"In the future, we have to go
to desalination, because the
freshwater supply at the mo-
ment can just barely meet the
demands of our growing popula-
tion," said James Klausner. a UF
professor of mechanical and
aerospace engineering, whose re-
search was funded by the U.S.
Department of Energy.
"We think this technology
could run off excess heat from
utility plants and produce mil-
lions of gallons each day," said
Klausner, lead author of an arti-
cle on the system that appears in
the current issue of the Journal
of Energy Resources Technology.
He co-invented the technology
with fellow UF mechanical engi-
neering professor Renwei Mei
More than 7.500 desalination
plants operate worldwide, with
two-thirds of them in the Middle
East, where there often is no
other alternative for fresh water,
Klausner said.
The technology is less com-
mon in North America, with
plants located mostly in Florida
and the Caribbean producing
only about 12 percent of the
world's total volume of desali-
nated water, he said.
U.S. residents get less than
one percent of their water from
desalination plants, he said.
The need for desalination is
likely to grow, however, as the
population increases and resi-
dents consume more fresh water.
In Florida, for example, de-
salination has been touted as
one solution for metropolitan ar-
eas where freshwater resources
are becoming ever more scarce.


With more than 97 percent of
the Earth's water supply com-
posed of salt water, desalination
is even more urgent in develop-
ing nations, such as China,
Klausner said.
"China has a large and grow-
ing demand, Japan has a large
demand, the Middle East, Sub-
Saharan Africa all look at it as a
worldwide problem," he said.
Most commercial desalination
plants now use either distillation
or reverse osmosis, Klausner
said.
Distillation involves boiling
and evaporating salt water and
then condensing the vapor to
produce fresh water.
In reverse osmosis, high pres-
sure pumps force salt water
through fine filters that trap and
remove waterbome salts and
minerals.
Boiling the vast amounts of
water needed for the distillation
process requires large amounts
of energy.
Reverse osmosis uses less en-
ergy but has other problems, in-
cluding mineral buildup dogging
the filters.
That's the main technical is-
sue plaguing the largest desali-
nation plant in the United
States, Tampa Bay Water's $108
million plant in Apollo Beach.
Although it was supposed to
produce 25 million gallons of
freshwater each day, the plant,
beset by technical and financial
problems since opening in 1999,
currently is shut down.
Employing a major modifica-
tiori to distillation, Klausner's
technology relies on a physical
process known as mass diffusion,
rather than heat, to evaporate
salt water.
In a nutshell, pumps move
salt water through a heater and
spray it into the top of a diffu-
sion tower a column packed
with a polyethylene matrix that
creates a large surface area for
the water to flow across as it
falls.
Other pumps at the bottom of
the tower blow warm, dry air up
the column in the opposite direc-
tion of the flowing water. As the

trickling salt water meets the
warm dry air, evaporation oc-
curs.
Blowers push the now-satu-
rated air into a condenser, the
first stage in a process that
forces the moisture to condense
as fresh water.
Klausner said the key feature
of his system is that.it can tap
warmed water plants have used
to cool their machines to heat
the salt water intended for de-
salination, turning a waste prod-
uct into a useful one.
He has successfully tested a
small experimental prototype in
his lab, producing about 500 gal-
lons of fresh water daily. His cal-
culations show that a larger ver-
sion, tapping the waste coolant
water from a typically sized 100-
megawatt power plant, has the
potential to produce 1.5 million
gallons daily.
The cost is projected at $2.50
per 1,000 gallons, compared with
$10 per thousand gallons for
conventional distillation and $3
per thousand gallons for reverse
osmosis.
Because.the equipment would
have to extract as much heat as
possible from the coolant water,
it would need to be installed
when a plant is built, he said.
.Another potential caveat is
that a full-scale version of the
mechanism would require a foot-
ball field-sized plot on land,
likely to be expensive in coastal
areas where power plants are lo-
cated, Klausner said. Presuma-
bly a utility would sell the fresh
water it produces, recouping and
then profiting from its invest-
ment, he said.
Klausner said .a miniature
version of the full-scale system
could be run using solar or other
forms of heat, which might be
useful for small towns or vil-
lages.
SUF has applied for a patent
on the technology. Klausner's re-
search was funded by a $200,000
grant from the Department of
Energy.

Fort Meade Raises $42,500 In Relay Luster All Training Center


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer
Perhaps it was because Fort
Meade residents suffered so
much and yet survived the three
hurricanes, they felt like they
must give back.
And give back they did, as
residents raised $42,500 at the
Fort Meade Relay for Life.
In 2001, Fort Meade raised
$17,500. In 2002, the city raised
$23,000.
For two years Fort Meade
joined Bartow in their Relay.
Many in the city said they
would respond better if the drive
was brought back to Fort Meade,
and respond they did, with this
incredible amount raised.
Twenty teams were formed
and more than 100 cancer survi-
vors were the first to walk
around the track at Frank S.
Battle Field as winners in the
fight against cancer.
"Everybody is here!" "The en-
tire City of Fort Meade showed
up!" "More fun than a fair!",
were comments heard from the
crowd,.as all of Fort Meade par-
ticipated in the fight to support
those struggling to survive can-
cer.
The American Cancer .Socie-
ty's fundraiser, Relay For Life,


took place Friday, April 8, and
Saturday, April 9.
The theme, "Operation Red,
White & Blue, Fighting the Bat-
tle Against Cancer," was carried
out by the 20 teams, as they set
up tents, motor homes, RVs and
booths, and took turns walking
around the tracks all night long.
The Survivor Reception and
barbecue dinner began under the
big tent at 5:30 p.m.
At the opening ceremonies at
6 p.m., co-chairmen Barbara
Manley and Melony Bell intro-
duced the honorary chairmen,
cancer survivors Danielle
Hensley, Betty Collier and Boots
Bowers.
A flag at the very end of the
tall ladder of the Polk County
fire engine was slowly being
raised as Jennifer Bailey sang
the national anthem.
The crowd said the Pledge of
Allegiance, and a moment of si-
lences was offered for our troops.
Then there was a special sur-
prise as an airplane flew low, in
a salute to the crowd.
As the more than 100 survi-
vors, wearing purple and white
T-shirts, began the first of many
walks around the track, they
were each given a balloon, which
was released as their names
were called.


Cancer never stops, so the
walking teams never stopped all
night long.
Honorary Chairman Danielle
Hensley, 9, who was diagnosed
with leukemia just before turn-
ing four, was chosen to release
enough balloons to fill the sky as
activities began to kick off.
Throughout the evening, en-
tertainment was. provided by
Wendy's Dance Company, Lewis
Elementary Chorus, Fort Meade
High School's Chorus and the
Kitchen Band.
At 9 p.m., the Luminary Cere-
mony took place. At 10 p.m.,
True Vision and Underweight
had a spot in the activities.
Other activities which took
place throughout the night were
a midnight talent show, a crazy
hat contest, hoola hoop contest,
turkey calling contest, tug of
war, water balloon toss, a guys'
prettiest legs contest, a pajama
contest, a bed head contest, a pa-
jama lap and aerobics.
Breakfast took place at 7 a.m.
The football distance throw
was at 7:30 a.m.
Take down and clean up, took
place before the final lap at 8:30,
and the awards and closing cere-
mony was held at 9 a.m.

Last week, the irrigation lines
were laid around the bandstand,
and the shell surface was re-
moved and replaced with rich
soil.
SIt was a fast operation. The
pallets of grass are sitting there
at this writing, ready to be
placed into a beautiful lawn.
The next step will be the
planting of a hedge and plants

Wildfire Season Is Upon Us


Wildfire Awareness week is
April 10 -16.
Designated by the Florida
Cabinet in 1999, Wildfire Aware-
ness Week is observed each year
during the second week of April,
a time when the state typically
experiences an increase in the
number and severity of wildfires.
So far this year, the level and
distribution of rainfall has kept
the number of wildfires rela-
tively low.
However, the state has just
begun what is normally its driest
period April and May.
"Even though we have had an
unusually wet spring, I encour-
age all Floridians to be very
careful with any outdoor fires,"
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson said.
Florida has a 12-month wild-
fire season because as little as
two weeks without rain at any
time of year can result in forests


and homes being threatened by
wildfires.
The most active part of the
year is December through June.
The greatest numbers of wild-
fires typically occur in February,
when killing freezes leave grass
and brush dry and ready to
burn, but the largest wildfires
usually occur in April and May,
when much of Florida experi-
ences a spring drought.
This year, firefighters will
have to deal with another factor
that threatens to make wildfires
more difficult to control the
thousands of dead trees uprooted
by last year's hurricanes.
"Dead and dying trees and
shrubs from the 2004 hurricanes
and tropical storms are now ad-
ditional fuel for wildfires," Bron-
son said. "We could have severe
wildfires for several years to
come because of the massive
amounts woody debris in our for-


ests and wildlands."
Forestry officials are espe-
cially concerned that homeown-
ers disposing of hurricane debris
may accidentally cause a wild-
fire.
"Escaped debris fires are a
frequent cause of wildfires in
Florida," Bronson said. "If you
still have leaves and other debris
from the 2004 storms, first con-
sider using the lighter organic
material for mulch, then set
larger pieces aside for curbside
pickup if it is available. If you
still have debris to burn, contact
the local office of our Division of
Forestry so you know how to
burn safely and legally."
Since the beginning of the
year, about 1,100 wildfires have
*burned approximately 13,000
acres in Florida. Forty-eight
structures burned as a result of
the wildfires and 341 structures
were saved.
During the disastrous wildfire
season of 1998, 4,900 wildfires
burned more than 506,000 acres
and destroyed 330 structures.

Firefighter License Plate

A 'Hot' Seller in 2004


The Polk County Democrat


i


The Florida Salutes Firefight-
ers specialty license plate was
the hottest selling new plate in
2004.
In a celebration in the Capitol
Courtyard, it was announced
that the 10,000th license plate
was sold and its $200,000 in pro-
ceeds will benefit charities
throughout the state. The tag,
depicting a firefighter with a pa-
triotic background, was spon-
sored by the Florida Professional
Firefighters.
The plate, which went on sale
throughout Florida last. June,
was ranked 38th out of a field of
91 specialty plates in 2004, ac-
cording to the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehi-
cles.
The idea for the specialty tag
came from Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue's Lt. Armand Nault,
shortly after the Sept. 11 terror-
ist act. With the outpouring of
community support, he thought
a specialty plate would give the
public an opportunity to show
their support 365 days a year
and help local charities at the
same time.
"The money raised from the


sale of each plate will be col-
lected by the Florida Firefighter
Charities and will be distributed
back to eligible, local charities
chosen by the firefighters where
the plate was sold," said Nault.
The plate is available to the
general public for an additional
20 plus a $2 processing fee re-
quired by the state.
"Florida has specialty plates
for many worthy causes, from
child abuse prevention to wild-
life conservation," said CFO/Fire
Marshal Tom Gallagher. "This
new tag is a wonderful way to
show the men and women of fire-
rescue here in Florida and
throughout the nation that we
appreciate their heroic service to
our communities."
The FPF has over 19,000
members including firefighters,
emergency medical personnel
and the state's forestry workers.
Last year, the FPF ranked sec-
ond among the 50 states for their
$1.2 million contribution to
MDA, just one of the charities
that firefighters support.

Employees from Citrus and
Chemical Bank will start kids at
schools throughout Polk County
on a path to a positive financial
future on April 26 by participat-
ing in "National Teach Children
to Save Day," an annual, nation-
wide event to teach kids their fi-
nancial ABCs.
"While today's kids can re-
ceive e-mail through their cell
phones or use the Internet to do
their homework, many don't
know the basics of saving and
money management," said Myr-
tice Young, first vice-president
and marketing director for C&C
Bank.
"Studies show that people
who learn to save early in life
usually make smarter financial
decisions later. National Teach
Children to Save Day starts kids
off on the right'path to saving for
their future."
Sponsored by the American
Bankers Association Education
Foundation,' Nitional Teach
Children to Save Day is a day in
April when bankers make pres-
entations in schools across the
country to students in kindergar-
ten through 12th grade.
C&C employees will teach
children about money and sav-
ings, covering topics such as
budgeting, the difference be-
tween needs and wants, why it's
important to save for emergen-
cies and how interest makes
money grow.
Students will have an oppor-
tunity to apply concepts and
practices through games and
other hands-on activities.
"Bankers are experts at sav-
ing and investing, so it's a natu-
ral fit for them to visit class-
rooms to teach, students how
their money can grow," said Don-
Sald G. Ogilvie, executive vice-
president of the American Bank-

Words on paper. They will always be the most powerful tools human beings use to

make complex ideas simple, and simple ideas powerful. We do more than read them, we
hold them. And, from the advertising we see in publications to the letters we receive

Virtually every telephone user knows that dialing the digits 8-0-0 to initiate a call insures
a toll-free phone call. Equally recognizable are the digits 9-1-1, which when dialed,
give consumers a direct line to an emergency services operator. Other three-digit
codes are used in many communities in Florida to provide a range of services. Those
codes and their application are outlined below.


211 Community information
and referral services are
provided via this code in
some communities in Florida.
Potential users should inquire
locally or, alternatively, can
check http://flairs.org/florida211 network
plan.htm for a listing of active 211 provid-
ers. If a community service agency, which
may provide social or health services,
wishes to acquire 'this number, it must
make.a request to the Agency for Health
Care Administration. There are 11 active
211 regional and local call centers serving
33 of Florida's 67 counties, supplying 211
services to 75 percent of the state's popu-
lation.


state, which, like the 211 code, is not in
use statewide. In parts of Florida where
the code is in use mostly major markets
- callers can receive travel information.


S611 This code is assigned
to local phone companies to
provide customers access to
telephone repair services.


S711 This number is used to
gain access to the Florida Tele-
communications Relay Service.
9 This system, created by the Leg-
islature in 1991, provides access
to the telecommunications network for
individuals with speech, hearing or dual
sensory disabilities.


S311 This code is reserved
for non-emergency police ONE 811 The 811 code cur-
and other governmental rently provides access to
services. In communities C( LL the business offices of the

WIIeret Ltis coe is In1 Use, it priuviues
residents with a simple way of gaining
access to local law enforcement in
circumstances that lack urgency or to local
government services deemed appropriate
by city or county officials. In extreme
circumstances, such as hurricanes, the
311 code may be used when local 911
emergency numbers are overloaded.


, 411 Most consumers recognize
this code as providing local di-
rectory assistance. At one time,
calls to 411 were free. However,
customers should check to determine what
their calling plan charges for this service.


511 The Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation
implements and adminis-
ters the 511 service in the


local service company, but this may
change in the next few years. Through
the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of
2002, Congress mandated the establish-
ment of a three-digit nationwide toll-free
number for states to use for a one-call
notification system. An advisory group to
the Federal Communications Commission
has recommended the use of 811.



O911 Probably the most rec-
ognized of the three-digit
codes, 911 is for emergency
services only.



Braulio L. Baez is the Chairman of the Florida Public
Service Commission. The PSC sets the rates regulated
utility companies charge for natural gas, electric and
telephone service within the state. In 36 counties, it
sets the price you pay for the water you drink, if your
water company is privately owned.

Robot Turkey Donation to Help

FWC Prevent Illegal Hunting


Some high-tech recruits are
joining the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's (FWC) law enforcement
team.
The Florida State Chapter of
the National Wild Turkey Fed-
eration (NWTF) has given the
FWC five robotic turkeys. These
so called robo-turkeys are lifelike
figures that rotate their bodies,
move their tails and even gobble.
"Our officers use the robo-tur-
keys to snare poachers as they
attempt to shoot the decoys,"
said Col. Julie Jones, FWC's law,


enforcement director. "Having
five more of these in the field
will greatly increase, our ability
to catch unethical hunters and
conserve one of Florida's prized
game birds."
Robo-turkeys are not cheap,
costing around $700 a piece, and
since they are not bulletproof,
they often have a short lifespan.
That is why NWTF has stepped
in to offer assistance.
."Our group made a commit-
ment to provide the mechanical
birds to all five FWC regional of-
fices," NWTF Florida Chapter


President Bill Marvin said. "We
appreciate the agency's commit-
ment to enforcing wildlife laws
and want to help officers with
their efforts."
NWTF has donated a total of
15 birds to the agency during the
last three years. The five new
robo-turkeys include four gob-
blers and one hen.
This latest donation couldn't
have come at a better time, an
FWC spokesman said. Florida's
spring turkey season began this
month.

From the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission

Few anglers will ever have an
opportunity to try to reel in a
freight train, but people who
hook one of Florida's monstrous
catfish have a pretty good idea of
what it would feel like. Monster
.catfish can be found all over
Florida and some top the scales
at 60 pounds or more.
Blue catfish and flathead cat-
fish, both found primarily in riv-
ers, are the largest catfish spe-
cies in this state's waters. The
state record blue catfish is a
61.5-pound monster, and the
state record flathead weighed in
at .49.4 pounds.
Channel catfish occur all over
the state. The state record is
44.5 pounds, while the record for
the channel catfish's smaller
cousin, the white catfish, is 18.9
pounds.
Other catfish species in Flori-
da's waters include the abun-
dant, but smaller, brown and
yellow bullheads, which have
rounded tails, rather than forked
tails like the others.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission (FWC) fisheries bi-
ologists recently selected Flori-
da's top 10 catfishing holes for
2005. They are (in no particular
order):
Escambia River This one is
not for sissies. Big channel cat-
fish come out of this river be-
tween mid-April and June and
early October into November if
the water stays warm. It also
gives up plenty of blue catfish
and flatheads. Anglers catch cat-
fish here year round, but it gets
a little slower when the weather
gets a little nippy.
The Apalachicola River and
Lake Seminole It never fails.
If you're looking for superlatives
about freshwater fishing in Flor-
ida, you can count on finding
this system somewhere on the
top 10 list in every category.
Channel cats and flatheads rule
these waters.
Big channel catfish dominate
the fishing action from late May
into early July. Flatheads start
getting hungry in April and stay
that way into the summer. Even
during winter, small catfish get
the munchies for some good old
stink baits and other favorites.
The best spots to fish are from
Jim Woodruff Dam south, old
creek channels, Lake Seminole
backwaters and around mouths
of tributaries.

diac emergencies.
The course will be held at the


Choctawhatchee River This
river is a sweetie-pie that offers
up some nice, big channel catfish
and bullheads along with a few
flatheads. Late May through
early June and October into No-
vember (if the water stays
warm) are the times to go if
you're after the big ones.
Small ones never stop biting,
but they get a little lazy about it
when the weather gets too cool
for them. Fishing is good all the
way from the Alabama line to
West Bay and near the mouth of
Holmes Creek and other tribu-
taries.
St. John's River and Dunn's
Creek Here's where you go to
wear yourself out catching chan-
nel cats, white catfish and bull-
heads. Big channel catfish action
gets heavy in early May through
June. Smaller catfish feed re-
lentlessly during spring and fall
months but slow down during
winters.
The best places to fish are
Dunnss Creek to Lake Crescent,
Murphy's Creek from the St.
John's to Dunn's Creek and the
river section from Palatka to Lit-
tle Lake George. There is a deep
hole on the north side of Buffalo
Bluff Bridge that is a real honey-
hole, but it has lots of snags.
Take plenty of hooks and
weights if you fish there, because
the snags will keep some of
them.
Oklawaha River Big chan-
nel catfish, along with some
whites and bullheads, bite here
May, through June and October
to -mid-November. Small ones
keep on biting all year from Rod-
man Dam east to the St. Johns
River and from the west end of
Rodman Reservoir to the lock
and dam at Moss Bluff. Take
home a'mess of fish from this
river, add a little onion to your
hush puppy recipe and cook it all
up yourself, and your whole fam-
ily will think you're a hero.
Ochlockonee River Flat-
head action heats up in early
April, and the channel cats join
in from mid-May into early sum-
mer. Both species keep on biting
until the weather turns cool in
October or November. Small cat-
fish bite year-round, but they
bite best in warm months.
The most successful anglers
fish the Talquin tailrace area,
but the whole river offers good
catfishing, including flathead
and bullhead fishing. When you
go catfishing on this river,


$10 per person or $15 per couple.

there's no question about the
main course for supper. There's
nothing left to decide except
whether to use mild or sharp
cheese on the grits.
Suwannee and Santa Fe riv-
ers Catfish love the lime rock
areas throughout these rivers,
particularly in the upper and
middle reaches. They like the
deadfalls in the lower rivers.
Channel catfish, white catfish
and bullheads bite year-round,
but the big channel cats like to
get caught from late April
through June.
If you decide to fry up some
potatoes to go with the fish, do
them in separate oil. You
wouldn't want your catfish to
taste like potatoes.
Clermont Chain of Lakes -
Channel catfish and white cat-
fish like to hang out around ca-
nals and channels when water is
flowing through them, but the
rest of the time, the best places
to fish for catfish are offshore,
open-water sites, particularly
near drop-offs or around bottom
structures.
To bag catfish in this system,
some commercial trotliners catch
them by baiting with chunks of
freshly caught gar in the bigger
channels. They also use honey-
bees for bait in smaller channels,
and it works.
Don't mess around too long
when you're through fishing for
the day. Aswith all kinds of fish,
there is no substitute for fresh-
ness to keep the taste level in
the magnificent category.
Haines Creek Between
Lakes Eustis and Griffin, espe-
cially below the lock and dam,
channel catfish get real active
from mid-April through June
and again in October and No-
vember when water tempera-
tures. start to drop. That's when
catfishing picks up in creeks and
slows down in lakes as catfish
seek out flowing water and stay
a little deeper.
Small catfish bite year-round,
especially when the creek is
flowing.
If you go fishing here when
the wreath aher is cool, be sure to
put a little hot sauce-on your
hush puppies to help you warm
back up at mealtime.
Upper Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes Moving water concen-
trates catfish, so that's the ticket
for hauling in channel catfish,
white catfish and bullheads out
of this chain. The best times are
peak spawning periods April
through June for channel catfish
and October and November for.
bullheads.
The best spots are East Lake
Canal, Southport Canal, C-36
(the canal between lakes Hatchi-
neha and Kissimmee), below the
Kissimmee River structure,
around the mouth of and in
Shingle Creek and around fish
attractors. Catfish like to hang
around drop-offs and around bot-
tom structures in canals.
Admittedly, some of the lakes
in this part of central Florida
have names that are hard to
spell, but don't worry about that.
Just know that if you fish here,
your family is going to eat well
that night.
Resident freshwater fishing li-
censes cost $13.50 per year. Non-
residents pay $16.50 for a seven-
day license or $31.50 for an an-
nual license.
