City Labor Contracts


To Be Ratified Tonight


More than six months into the
one-year contract period, city of
Bartow labor union contracts
with the general employees union
and the firefighters union will be
submitted for ratification by the
city commission tonight.
The contracts, including pay
raises, are retroactive to last Oct.
1, and expire on Sept. 30 of this
year.
Both contracts call for pay
raises of 2 percent, and change
the policy on military leave to
comply with a recent change in
federal law, City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge said.
The firefighters contract also
reduces the number of years of
employment to qualify for four
weeks vacation from 16 to 15, and
adds one jumpsuit to the uni-
forms that the city buys for fire-
fighters.
DeLegge said the negotiations
were delayed by hurricane recov-
ery efforts, and talks bogged
down over some changes sought
by the city on sick pay in worker's
compensation cases and other
issues. No changes were made on


those issues, he said.
The general employees are rep-
resented by AFL-CIO Local 1010,
and the firefighters by Teamsters
Local 79.
The commission will meet for a
work session this afternoon at 5
o'clock at city hall, and will recon-
vene at 6:30 for its regular busi-
ness meeting.
Other items on the agenda:
Action on zoning board rec-
ommendations to:
(1) Annex .78 of an acre of land
on County Road 555 that will be
part of the expansion of Wildwood
Cemetery.
(2) Rezone a parcel of land at
CR 555 and Clower Street from
R-1 (single family residential) to
R-3 (apartments) and C-4 (neigh-
borhood commercial).
(3) Annex a two-acre parcel of
land on the south side of Lyle
Parkway, a half-mile west of
Maple Avenue, and zone it R-1
with the condition that only one
house may be built on it.
Recognition of Molly Egli for
serving on the library board.

Authorization for the city to
borrow up to $500,000 from
Citrus & Chemical Bank for five
years at 3.1 percent on behalf of

replenish cash reserves spent on
property acquisition.

$1,266,406 from SunTrust

Four New Appointees Advance


Polk School Staff Reorganization


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

School Supt. Dr. Gail
McKinzie's district staff reorgani-
zation is taking shape as, posi-
tions are being filled. Four new
appointments were approved at
the school board meeting on
Tuesday.
Appointed were Brenda Kearse
as senior director of middle
schools, David Lewis as senior
director of high schools, Debra
Edmiston as senior director of ele-
mentary schools, and Jerome
Corbett as senior director for spe-
cialized services.
All appointments are sched-
uled to take effect on July 1 and
each appointee is to receive a
salary of about $85,428.

Brenda G. Kearse

Brenda G. Kearse, currently a
Hillsborough County resident,
was named to the newly created
position of senior director of mid-
dle schools.
When addressing the board,
Ms. Kearse reminisced about
growing up in Haines City and a
word she learned while attending
fourth grade there "solicita-
tions," meaning "an entreaty
addressed to someone of superior
status." Forty-five years ago, she
addressed the Polk County school
board while running for student
office by "offering solicitations."
"So I stand here repeating
them," she said on Tuesday, "solic-
itations from Hillsborough
County."
For the last six years, Ms.
Kearse has served as a principal
on special assignment for staff


development in Hillsborough
County. Prior to that, she was
principal at Oak Grove Middle
School in Tampa after being an
assistant principal at two schools.
-She also has spent nine years as a
mathematics teacher in the
Tampa area.
"I will give more than 150 per-
cent to make the middle schools
in Polk County number one in the
state," she said.

David Lewis

Currently the principal of
Frostproof Middle Senior High
School, David Lewis has been
named senior director of high
schools.
Lewis said having to leave
Frostproof, where he has served
in some capacity since 1992, was
"the most difficult career decision
of my life."
No stranger to Polk County,
Lewis has been with the district
since 1979, when he started as
the band director at Fort Meade
Middle/Senior High School and
later became an assistant princi-
pal. Lewis' wife, Karen, currently
works at FMMSHS, where she is
choral director.
"I will work 150 percent and
try .to uphold the confidence you
have placed in me," Lewis said.

Deborah Edmiston

Deborah Edmiston, currently
the principal of an "A plus" school
under the FCAT school grading
criteria, was named senior direc-
tor of elementary schools.
She has worked for the district
since 1974, starting as a teacher
at Kathleen Elementary. Since


then, she has served at all levels
of administration, includingprin-
cipal of North Lakeland
Elementary, where the first Title
One program was implemented
school-wide by the district.
She got her administrative
start at Floral Avenue
Elementary in Bartow, where she
says "everything I learned, I
picked up there." She said it was
"wonderful" to be back in Bartow.
"I want to unify the district,"
she said. "At times it feels like we
are all different communities."
Ms. Edmiston said she will
accomplish this by unifying
teaching practices across the
county into one common method.
She also said she is eager to uti-
lize recent research-based studies
on teaching and learning.
"With the new data that is out
there, whether it is coming from a
classroom background, a business
background or from a laboratory,
they are all saying the same
things about education."
Another key component of her
plans for elementary education is
reading. Ms. Edmiston said she
would work for a kindergarten
through 12th grade comprehen-
sive reading program.
Jerome Corbett

The name Corbett is a familiar
one around Battow, and an even
more familiar one around the
school board. Following in his
father's footsteps, Jerome Corbett
has been with the school district
since 1985, when he began his
career as a management systems
assistant at the district office. He
is now going to be senior director
of specialized services.


Corbett has served as a mathe.
matics instructor at Lake Alfrec
Career Development Center, dear
of students at. George H. Gausf
Career Development Center, dear,
of students at Mulberry Higt
School, the assistant principal ai
J. Daniel Jenkins Middle.
In her appointment speech, Dr
McKinzie said that this position
will be especially difficult foi
Corbett because of the changing
nature of the position's responsi-
bilities.
"The position is still evolving,"
Corbett said. "Some of the lines
are not clearly defined.
"One of the things I will be
working with-is the development
of specialized educational options,
and to research new forms of
alternative education."
Corbett said the parameters of
the position will come down to
whether or not the district con-
tracts out to Affiliated Computer
Services (ACS) to assist the dis-
trict.
"That's not a done deal,"
Corbett said. "But if that goes
through, my primary responsibil-
ity will be to oversee and make
sure they are doing what they are
supposed to be doing."
Corbett said he hopes to be
seen as a resource for the commu-
nity and as an approachable per-
son.
His father, former school board
member J.J. Corbett, attended
the meeting and had high praise
for his son.
"Naturally my wife and I are
very proud. He's grown up quite a
bit in the last year," Corbett said.
"He also has an interest in
young people that I hope always
continues."


Brenda G. Kearse


A proposal to allow developers
to post a bond for only one-fourth
of the value of infrastructure in
their subdivisions won tentative
approval by the zoning board.
The board postponed a recom-
mendation on a proposal to allow
manufactured housing through-
out the city, not just in residen-
tial zones.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
recommended lowering the bond
for subdivision improvements
from 100 percent to 25 percent of
the value of streets and water
and sewer lines.
He said the city has had no
problems in the past three years
with infrastructure failure.
Zoning Board Member Bo


Raulerson asked if the city
inspects improvements as they
are being constructed, and
Wiegers replied that it does.
Wiegers said some jurisdic-
tions require only a 10 to 15 per-
cent bond, while others require
no security. Some governments
don't accept improvements until
one year after construction, he
said.
Zoning board members sched-
uled a public hearing on the pro-
posal for May 9.
A proposal to allow manufac-
tured buildings in all zones, not
just in residential areas, was
postponed after the board said it
wanted to add a provision to
allow temporary use of mobile


offices, subject to city approval.
The proposed standard for
manufactured buildings would
required that structures bear a
Florida Dept. of Consumer
Affairs seal.
Board members proposed to
allow construction trailers -
which would not meet the DCA
standards for temporary use.
The board also:
Approved a request from
Nextel Corp. to erect a 155-foot
cell phone tower near the inter-
section of State Road 60 and
County Road 555.
Voted to recommend to the
city commission that it annex .78
of an acre of land adjacent to
Wildwood Cemetery for expan-


sion of the cemetery.
Voted to recommend to the
city commission that it rezone
some land at Clower Street and
County Road 555 from R-1 (sin-
gle family residential) to R-3
(apartments) and C-4 (neighbor-
hood commercial). George
Lindsey of Kings, Partnership,
developer of the adjacent resi-
dential subdivisions, said the
property would be "a neighbor-
hood shopping center or strip
center" of up to 20,000 square
feet. The. apartments could be
conventional apartments or four-
unit dwellings, he said.

By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Science can be serious busi-
ness, as was seen at the annual
science fair at Stephens Elemen-
tary. For some of this year's win-
ners, however, just being a kid
still takes precedence over chem-
istry and physics.
Fourth and fifth graders at
the school were required to come
up with a hypothesis and then
conduct a series of experiments
and average out the results. The
students then had to put to-
gether their data and findings
into a eye-catching, easy-to-read
format. The entries were judged
by school board member Hazel
Sellers, with the winners getting
the chance to represent the
school at county and even state
competitions. ,
For fourth grader Stephen
Cassick and fifth graders Steffa-
nie Munguia and Cory Lee, all
the hard work was worth it.
Kuhlman took first place in his
grade and Miss Munguia and
Lee took first and second place,
respectively, in their grade.
"I did pretty good," said Cas-
sick. "I didn't expect to get sec-
ond.",
S Cassick made different solu-
tions of water, including salt and
sugar water, and with help from
his parents, Rick and Amy,
boiled them on the stove to see
which one boiled the fastest.
"I wasn't worried (about win-
ning). I was in art class while
they were being judged, so I was
having a good time."
The 9-year-old Cassick said
he isn't the biggest science buff
in the world, but said he defi-
nitely plans on going to college
after high school, where he
hopes to continue playing sports.
In the mean time, Cassick said
he enjoys football and baseball
as -well as playing video games.
He currently plays for the sec-
ond-place Whits Building Sup-
ply's Dixie Youth Baseball team
in Bartow.
"I can play pretty much any
position really, so I play wher-
ever coach puts me," he said.


For the 11-year-old Lee,
model cars and racing video
games are what gets him ex-
cited, but he said he took a break
to complete his project..
"I thought mine turned out
pretty good," said Lee, who con-
ducted experiments in his drive-
way on how sunlight affects the
temperature of different colors.
"It turned out a little bit better
than I thought it would."
Lee said he couldn't have fin-
ished his project on time without
the help of his mom, Cheryl, but
also said he didn't want to leave
out his dad, Sid, either.
Lee said he enjoys being at
Stephens Elementary, especially
his teacher, Jimmy Hicks. He as-
pires to go to college, but said he
still has some time to get in a
few more hours on his Playsta-
tion 2.
For someone living in a house
with 25 birds 26 if you count
the one she recently rescued -
the last thing you would think-
Miss Munguia would want to do
is listen to more bird calls. But
that's exactly what she did, visit-
ing two different locations and
monitoring how different birds
reacted to certain bird calls.
"My project came out pretty
good. I had a lot of fun," she said.
"Birds are fun, they have a lot of
personality."
Her father, Rainier, who Miss
Munguia describes as "photogra-
pher slash artist slash engineer
slash ornithologist" downloaded
bird calls off the Internet and
then burned them to a CD. Her
mother, Nyleen, also helped out
with the presentation.
"I couldn't have done it with-
out them," Miss Munguia said.
The excited 10-year-old said
she has college plans in the fu-
ture and aspires to be an orni-
thologist. It comes as no surprise
as she has been surrounded by
animals, pretty much since
birth.
She enjoys reading, especially
fiction, and traveling with her
family to bird shows across the
country.
Despite her good marks and
gung-ho attitude about learning,


True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about but few
have seen.
-Francois, Due De La Rochefoucauld


Miss Munguia wanted to make
one thing clear "I do normal
stuff and watch a lot of TV, too.
I'm not Steve Urkel."

Death Tax Repeal


Supports Small Business


Family farms and other family-owned
businesses traditionally have enjoyed a
special affection in America's marketplace.
In an era in which more and more small
businesses are being gobbled up by chains,
there is something a little refreshing about
the entrepreneurial spirit in which a busi-
ness can be created, nurtured, and passed
along to successive generations.
And yes, the company that owns this
newspaper is one such business; it was
established in 1931, and is now in the
fourth generation of ownership by the
same family.
But America's tax structure discourages
this objective.
What has been known for many years as
the "estate tax" but recently has been
more accurately labeled the "death tax" -
has discouraged the passing along of busi-
nesses from generation to generation.
Many types of businesses family
farms and community newspapers among
them have a taxable value that is dis-
proportionately higher than the profits
they create.
The profits they produce are less than
the death tax payable when the business
passes from one generation to the next.
As a result, as pointed out last week by
Congressman Adam Putnam, "it is cheap-
er for someone to sellia business before
dying and pay the capital gains tax than to
pass it on to his children."
Another option: the heirs may have to
sell the business to pay the death tax due
on it. It is a classic case of the wry concept:
"The operation was a success; the patient
died."
The House of Representatives voted last
week by a margin of nearly 2-to-1 to pass
the Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act of


2005. As the name suggests, it would make
permanent a liberalization of the death tax
that otherwise will expire in a few years.
"This is a grave injustice that will finally
be corrected" if the Senate follows the
House lead and buries the death tax,
Putnam said.
This newspaper unashamedly supports
the interests of independent businesses -
including newspapers that have their
roots in the communities they serve. We
believe that national tax policy should
keep them in the corporate mix with chain
operations which face no "death tax"
issues.
We are proud that Putnam, a member of
a multi-generation farm family, is a spon-
sor of this House bill, and we hope that the
'Senate will follow the House's lead.
It is an unfortunate fact of life that tax
policy is a factor in the survivability of
independent businesses.
By ending the death tax on small busi-
nesses, Congress can make a major step
toward preserving this endangered
species.

OUR READERS SAY
Angels in a Bucket Truck


BARTOW Over the years
I have discovered that heroes
and angels come in assorted
sizes and shapes for various
reasons. They do not all rescue
someone from a burning
building, pull them from a
mangled automobile or drag
them from a watery grave.
On occasion they just pull
over and help change a tire.
This is precisely what two of
them did last Tuesday.
Wanda, a young lady who
had experienced some misfor-
tune with one of the tires on
her van near my home,
approached me while I was
working in my yard. She
asked if I knew where there
was a service station she could

OUR READERS SAY


get to change or repair her flat
tire. She also asked directions
to the establishment in Bartow
that she had been searching
for when the tire decided to go
flat on one side.
I told her that I could direct
her to someone who could
assist her in locating the facili-
ty for which she searched but
that' "service station" was a
misnomer. I also offered that I
did vaguely recall how to
change a tire. This too, would
prove to be a fallacy.
To shorten the story and
refrain from divulging my
ineptness, two of the afore-
mentioned entities, be they
heroes or angels, happened'
along and recognized the diffi-


culty we were having. They
pulled over right after they
passed our location and
walked back to offer assis-
tance.
I do apologize for not ask-
ing their names. They were
wearing "City of Bartow"
insignias on their uniforms
and driving a line repair buck-
et truck. I do believe, judging
from the time of day, that it
was their lunch time.
Guys, be you heroes or
angels, I just want to thank
you again for your kind assis-
tance. Thank you and God
bless.

'Two Votes for Silver Company


BARTOW I am taking this
means to present our views of the
Silver Company proposal for the
Griffin and Smith development
on Highway 98,and E.F. Griffin
Road.
We have been living at our
present address since 1963 and
have enjoyed the rural atmos-
phere and neighbors. However,
we know and knew when we
built our home that we would
eventually become crowded.
That time is now.
Our property adjoins the
Griffin property on the east 880
feet. On the north we adjoin the
Smith property 440 feet. So you


can see that we are very much' developer getting his hands on


involved
We have been impressed with
the presentations by the Silver
Company and their concern for
the environment. They have said
that there is no way they will cut
the property in the middle. This
pleases us as we can think of no
worse situation than an extension.
of Cedar Ridge Road to Highway
98. Can you imagine the traffic
that would be generated when
the property on the west side of
E.F. Griffin Road is developed
and that traffic is added to the
present?
The idea of a commercial


the property is scary to say the
least.
When I look at the fences
along County Road 540-A at
Christina, the idea of landscaped
berms becomes very appealing to
me.
Granted, the density is greater
than ideal, but high dry land is
getting hard to find and will soon
be impossible to locate.
I have had my say; I hope that
therelvill be no hold-up with the
project's progress. Two votes for
Silver Company.
BARTON AND LIBBY
WHEELER


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

Judges, Too, Must Take Their Hits


If they're really out to get you, it's
not paranoia.

I think that concept has some-
thing to do with today's epistle; if
not, it's still good for cocktail
party small talk.
It was refreshing to see Justices
Anthony Kennedy and Clarence
Thomas of the United States
Supreme Court acknowledge last
week that being the target of crit-
icism goes with the job.
Federal judges, who are
appointed for life, are particular-
ly prime targets, because the pub-
lic can't do anything about them
but complain.
(The constitutional standard,
incidentally, is not that they are
appointed "for life," but "during
good behavior." I have long
argued that "good behavior"
should be based on the sound-
ness of their decisions, rather
than on their personal conduct.


But with the exception of David
Lawrence of U.S. News and
World Report, who once wrote on
the subject, and Chesterfield
Smith, who supported my pro-
posal for a "Court of the Nation,"
public interest is underwhelm-
ing.
My "Court of the Nation"
would be made up of the chief
justices of the 50 state supreme
courts, who would do peer
review of the justices of the U.S.
Supreme Court to see if their
decisions constituted "good
behavior" on the bench.
Chesterfield t61d me he liked the
idea, and offered tongue in
cheek to support a constitu-
tional amendment to create it.
Judges --several of whom I
number among my friends -
tend to be a bit paranoid when
they come under public criticism
for their decisions. Some (not all)
go so far as to assert that their


decisions should not be ques-
tioned, unless by formal appeal
to a higher court.
Another aside: the sweetest
Latin phrase that a trial court
judge can hear from an appeal
court is "Per curium, affirmed,"
commonly called PCA. A PCA
means that the appellate court
finds the trial court's decision so
obviously correct that it requires
no explanation.
I once knew of a judge in
another circuit whose reputation
with the appellate court was so
bad that it reportedly considered
creating a finding of "Per curium,
reversed," meaning that the
judge's decision was so obviously
wrong that it wasn't necessary to
explain why.
The federal judiciary often

Bartowans and Polk Coun-
tians alike can feel safer from
drugs than in the past thanks to
the combined efforts of Drug
Abuse Resistance Education
(D.A.R.E.), the Just Say No pro-
gram and local law enforcement,
says the Polk County Sheriffs
Office.
The annual Just Say No
luncheon (breakfast in years
past), was held last Thursday,
capping off "Just Say No Week"
in Bartow, as was recognized by
the city commission.
Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd was slated to speak at the
event, but a last-minute emer-
gency kept him away. In his ab-
sence, Major Joe Halman, the
West Region Commander of the
Polk County Sheriffs Office gave
an address on the state of drugs
in the county.
"We are safer today in Polk
County (from drugs) than we
have ever been in the last 30
years," Major Halman said.
Since 1985, drug arrests have
gone down by more than 44 per-
cent. This decrease, Halman
said, is a direct result of law en-
forcement officers attacking the
problem at the source.
In 2003, PCSO shut down 13
drug manufacturing labs in Polk.


t 30 Years'

This year, that number dropped
to six. Halman said that de-
crease is a sign that drug manu-
facturing in the county is going
down with the increased police
pressure.
"As the number of labs de-
creases, the danger to our chil-
dren also decreases.":
Major Halman said PCSO's
plan to is to "arrest dealers and
manufacturers and aggressively
seize their assets."
Police efforts also are being
aided by increased awareness
about drugs by students. Hal-
man lauded the D.A.R.E. and
Just Say No programs for edu-
cating young people early on
about drugs, which he said is
also responsible for the consis-
tent slide in drug related crimes
in the county.
One of the newest dangers to
the county is a new form of proc-
essed methamphetamine, called
"ice."
"Meth by itself is dangerous,"
Major Halman said. "Ice just
takes it to a whole new level.
After Major Halman's speech,
motivational speaker Scott Hum-
ston performed his "Pro Kids
Show." Also, an auction coincid-
ing with the luncheon raised
$840 dollars to be donated to the
Just Say No Campaign locally.

FM Woman Wins National Migrant Award


V ,


"WE ARE SAFER TODAY in Polk County than we have been

Mary Lou Perez has received
the national Migrant Parent
Award.
Her honor was coordinated by
the Florida Exemplary Migrant
Students, Parents and Staff
Awards Project celebrating the
success of students, parents, and
school/community support per-
sonnel.
"I feel very honored, I feel
very blessed," Ms. Perez said.
"When I work, the things I do to
help people, I do not expect to
get paid. I have always wanted
to be a missionary, to help peo-
ple because of God.
"It never worked out for me to
go to another country to help
people, so I just help people eve-
rywhere I see they need help, at
the place where I am," she said.
Two weeks ago, when she re-
ceived notice in the mail from
Carolyn Mathews, migrant pro-
gram director, that she had won
the award, she had no idea that
she would be honored at a ban-
quet in San Francisco, as the mi-
grant parent of the year for
2003-04.
She said she was flown to
Minnapolis-St. Paul airport,
where she had a five-hour trip to
the largest mall in the country,
then was flown to San Francisco.
She stayed in the Hyatt Re-
gency with full service and
meals, attended three banquets
and at the last one, was honored
with the title. She also received
$400.
Ms. Perez, a Polk public
school parent and also a parae-
ducator at Fort Meade Middle
Senior High School, was first
honored as migrant parent of the
year by the Florida Migrant In-
terstate Program.
She is the mother of three
FMMSHS graduates.
She also is a migrant leader
in the Fort Meade community,
assisting migrant families with
filling out forms, applications
and acting as a translator.
She cooks and serves families
at the annul migrant awards
banquet for Fort Meade schools,
an event that draws between 150
and 200 people each year.
Ms. Perez also is active in as-
sisting families in need in Fort
Meade by preparing food or ob-
taining donations.
She volunteers in school each

At its next meeting, the Polk
County commission plans to es-
tablish a timetable for consider-
ing an increase in impact fees,
establishing Municipal Services
Taxing Units, or other mecha-
nisms to raise more money for
county government.
Commissioner Bob English
said the county has a $581 mil-
lion deficit in infrastructure.
"Our infrastructure is crum-
bling beneath our feet," he said.
He asked that the county be-
gin working on a schedule to cre-
ate new funding sources at its
next meeting, which will be held
on April 19.
"I have no problem with that,"
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said.
Commissioner Randy Wilkin-
son suggested that the county
make a decision on creation of
MSTUs, which are special taxing
districts created to provide spe-
cific municipal-type services, be-
fore school lets out for the Sum-
mer.
Families should know if they


are going to have to come up
with a few hundred dollars more
in taxes before they make vaca-
tion travel plans, he said.
"I think we need to take a
vote on it," Wilkinson added.
"You can bring it up any time
you want to," Myers told him.
English noted that imposition
of higher impact fees or estab-
lishment of MSTUs would re-
quire public hearings, and he
isn't ready to say exactly what
the county needs.
He also said the Legislature
might give the counties more tax
sources.
"I wouldn't depend too much
on the Legislature," Myers re-
plied.
Impact fees are imposed on
new construction to raise money
for new public facilities that are
made necessary by growth in the
county's population.
County Mgr. Mike Herr said
he is planning a workshop on
revenue sources in May.
"We'll be ready to go," he said.

"This is a completely unique

Against District Rival Storm
Women's Care Center


BSy RtUOr1DN W iJYER
StaffWriter

All throughout the season for
the state's eighth-ranked base-
ball team, Bartow High School,
the Yellow Jackets have had
their share of late game rallies
to overcome what, at the time,
appeared to be insurmountable
deficits.
Bartow has had a slew of
crazy comebacks contributing to
its 17-3 record, including a five-
run, sixth-inning rally on April 8
to overcome winless Kathleen, 7-
4.
That's why the district loss to
Celebration on April 1 hurt so
much. Bartow's number one
pitcher Drew Collier had his
winning streak snapped when
the Storm mounted a late-game
rally of their own to overcome
Collier and the Jackets 4-3.
On Friday, Collier had his
chance for revenge and this
time it was on the Jacket's turf.
The Storm (8-5, 4-3) rolled into
town with Collier ready for the
challenge.
The Jackets (17-3, 6-2)
pounded the Storm for nine runs
on 13 hits, while Collier and re-
liever Mark Donhaiser held
Celebration to just two runs on
five hits.
Collier went six innings, al-
lowing five hits, two run and
walked two. He finished with

seven Ks, including striking out
the side in the sixth. With the
win, he improves to 5-1 on the
season in seven starts.
"I felt a bit more focused (than
my last start against Celebra-
tion)," said Collier. "I had a job
to do and I did it."
"I wanted him up there," said
Bartow Head Coach Eric
Danapilis. "I wanted to see if he
could handle it and he fulfilled
all my expectations."
Collier got off to a rocky start
when Celebration drew first
blood in the top of the first for a
run off an RBI triple from Storm
centerfielder Benjie Nazzaro.
That would be the last time the
Storm would make a dent in the
scoring column until pitcher
Mike Koche's bloop single scored
a run in the fifth after the game
became out of reach.
Offensively, the Jackets had a
great night, scoring a run in
every inning except the second.
The bulk of the production, how-
ever, came from the top half of
the order. Hitters one through
five -combined for 11 of 19, and
scored eight of the Jackets' nine
runs. Hitters six through nine
struggled, going two of 12 with
no RBIs and only one run scored.
"We were focused at the plate
tonight," Danapilis said. "We
still struggled at times, but over
all, we have not had better at
bats through all seven innings


Charlotte County Speedway
will rekindle its tradition of run-
ning a special Sunday night pro-
gram prior to Memorial Day
with a "Daredevil Night" on May
29.
There will be several different
events taking place that Sunday
night.
Topping the list will be a
$2,000-to-win, 200-lap V-8 en-
duro race.
A 50-lap enduro for front
wheel drive four-cylinders also is
on the slate.
There also are a couple of fig-


like this."
Senior captain M.J. Wilson
belted his third home run of the
year, a three-run shot that rico-
cheted off the scoreboard, burst-
ing one of the lights.
Defensively, the Jackets were
without starting shortstop Jack
Murphy. Murphy was serving a
suspension after being ejected in
the Auburndale game for what
the umpire deemed as being too
aggressive on the base path.
Filling in at the six spot on
the field was Josh Ward. The
junior lit it up at the plate, going
two of four, with two runs, two
stolen bases and an RBI. His big-
gest contribution, though, came
on the field. Ward teamed up
with second baseman Brent
Delph for two key double plays,
one of them ending the top of the
third inning with the bases
loaded.
"You can't replace someone
like Jack Murphy," Ward said. "
Jack Murphy is a hoss."
Spohmore Joey Manning is
becoming a presence at the
plate, and continues to improve
his already over .400 batting av-
erage. The lanky catcher had a
great night, going three of four
with a double, two runs scored
and two singles.
Up next for the Jackets is a
non-district match-up at home
with McKeel Academy tonight.
Game time is 7:30 p.m.
