Polk High School Panelists


Give Educators High Marks


EVEN THOUGH we wish no child will ever have to use it, it's nice to know a well-stocked ambulance has been designed for kids.


Five Polk County high school
students whose academic records
range from a student who aced
both the ACT and the SAT to a
single mother who dropped out
and then returned to school gave
their educators high marks at a
meeting of the Polk County Tiger
Bay Club.
They had high praise for their
teachers, a little less enthusiasm
for some of their classmates, and
criticism for the school board for
not building new schools and
classroom additions fast enough
to keep up with population
growth.
All five felt their high school
experience has prepared them
well for the next step in their
lives.
Panelists were:
Neal Bhutiani, a senior at
the International Baccalaureate
program at Bartow High School,
who made perfect scores on both
the SAT and ACT tests.
David Spitzer, a senior at the
Polk Community College colle-
giate high school.
Lee Robine, a senior at
Lakeland High School.
Justin Hughes, a student at
Ridge Technical Center.
Latoya Montgomery, who
returned to school after having a
baby and is enrolled at Tech
Bridge Center, a "drop-out pre-
vention and retrieval program."
Each student gave a brief
opening statement about his or
her schooling.
Bhutiani said the IB program
"has the best teachers in the
county," adding that they are
"very accessible" and help him to
adapt the curriculum to his inter-


ests.
Spitzer said he is close to earn-
ing his AA degree at the PCC col-
legiate high school. He said lead-
ership opportunities are greater
there because of the smaller
enrollment.
Robine is studying computer
electronics and network adminis-
tration, and hopes to start his
own computer business.
Hughes also is learning net-
work support.
Montgomery said the Tech
Bridge program has given her a
second opportunity to complete
her high school education by
preparing her to pass the G.E.D.
test.
The panelists responded to
questions submitted by the audi-
ence and by S. L. Frisbie, IV, mod-
erator for the program.
Q: What is the worst thing
about high school?
Bhutiani: poorly motivated
students who take up too much of
the teachers' time and slow down
the pace of instruction; students
who are disruptive.
Spitzer: too much of school is
a popularity contest.
Robine: "goof-offs" who dis-
rupt class.
Montgomery: couldn't cite a
bad experience.
Hughes: cliques which
exclude some students.
Q: Are any courses or subjects
unnecessary?
Bhutiani: no.
Spitzer: physical education.
Robine: a variety of courses
helps students explore career
interests.
Hughes: physical education.
Montgomery: no.


Q: What one thing would you
change about high school if you
could?
Montgomery: nothing.
Hughes: would have gone to
the IB school.
Spitzer: would have gotten
more involved in school and com-
munity earlier.
Bhutiani: wishes the IB
school were closer to his home,
especially when he had to ride the
bus.
Q: Do you know of students
who are struggling with the high
school experience, and what could
the faculty do to help?
Bhutiani: most problems
start in the home; parents are the
most important influence on their
children's education.
Spitzer: teachers could be
more accessible.
Robine: it is the students'
responsibility to request help
when they need it.
Hughes: his instructors "give
150 percent" to students who are
lagging behind.
Montgomery: students must
be motivated to get an education.
Q: What should the school
board do to relieve overcrowding:
Bhutiani: plan ahead; don't
wait until schools are overcrowd-
ed to build new schools or addi-
tions.
Spitzer: year 'round school
calendar, because of the start-up
time required after a full Summer
vacation.
Hughes: add to existing
schools; pay teachers higher
salaries.
Montgomery: build more
classrooms.

New, Larger Ambulances Equipped


To Care for the Smallest of Patients


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Infants and children in Polk
County who become sick or
injured now have more suitable,
comfortable transportation avail-
able to them in the event they
need to go to a hospital.
SAll Children's Hospital
Neonatal and Pediatric Transport
Teams have designed two new,
state-of-the-art ambulances -
tailor-made to accommodate
infants and children.
Each ambulance features an
air-ride system that absorbs
bumps and other motion, which is
especially beneficial to low birth
weight infants or children with
broken bones; more space for
patient care, with room for two
isolettes, two stretchers, or one of
each, so that two young patients
can be taken to the hospital at the
same time; Intelliplex system
keyboards at both the front and
rear of the vehicles, which control
oxygen, compressed air, suction,
air-conditioning, lighting, and
more; a closed-circuit headset sys-
tem that allows crew members to
communicate more easily; a
refrigerator for medications; a
blanket warmer to provide warm
blankets; and even adjustable
lighting, music, and DVD systems
to help calm: and distract chil-


dren.
These new, larger ambulances
are virtually "mobile emergency
rooms," Respiratory Therapist
Jason Zeemer said.
"This is a Bentley versus a
Volkswagen," he said. "(Infants
and children) tolerate this vehicle
much better.
"It carries much more special
equipment, and has the capability
to do just about everything."
When a child is transported to
a hospital, he or she is placed in


the care of one of two rotating
teams, each consisting of a regis-
tered nurse, respiratory thera-
pist, and emergency medical tech-
nician trained in neonatal, pedi-
atric, and adult care. The teams
also are equipped to travel with
patients by air when they must be
air-lifted.
Both teams sometimes have to
work at the same time, and if one
team is already with a patient
and another needs emergency
care, a Bay Flight helicopter will


fly out and pick up the other team
and take them to the patient, H.
Roy Adams, director of Volunteer
Services at All Children's, said.
"With all the new technology,"
Adams said, "we are able to take
care of more needs. As everything
else in the world gets smaller,
medical equipment got bigger.
"One size doesn't always fit all,
but these vehicles are equipped to
handle all size children."


Fire Union Contract Approved;

General Employees Delayed


A one-year labor union con-
tract with the Bartow firefighters
union was ratified by the city
commission Monday night, more
than halfway into the year, but
ratification of the general employ-
ees contract was delayed.
When the general employees
contract was returned by the
union Monday afternoon, it con-
tained a change in wording, and
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
pulled it from consideration by
the commission.
The contracts, including pay
raises of two percent, are retroac-


tive to last Oct. 1, and expire on
Sept. 30 of this year.
Both contracts change the pol-
icy on military leave to comply
with a recent changes in state
and federal law, DeLegge said.
The firefighters contract also
reduces the number of years of
employment to qualify for four
weeks vacation from 16 to 15.
Mitchell Dean Franks, the
city's. labor relations lawyer, told
the commission that firefighters
contract changes the grievance
procedure, requiring that all
grievances be filed in writing;


increases the amount of funeral
leave; and adds one jumpsuit to
the uniforms that the city buys
for firefighters.
The firefighters are represent-
ed by Teamsters Local 79, and the
general employees are represent-
ed by AFL-CIO Local 1010.
Negotiations with the police
officers union, which has
switched its affiliation from the
Teamsters to the Police
Benevolent Assn., are still in
progress, Police .Chief Erik
Sandvik said.


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

Building in Polk may become a
little more expensive.
Commissioners voted on
Wednesday to hold a public hear-
ing May 4 on raising the impact
fee for county medical services
and instituting a new impact fee
for parks.
Impact fees are imposed on
new construction to pay for the
cost of infrastructure to support
growth. Something Polk commis-
sioners have long supported.
Only Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson stood in opposition to
holding the public hearing, stat-
ing that he thought that the pro-
posed fees were too high, and also
questioning whether churches
and public and private schools
should pay fees.
Polk already charges impact
fees for roads and public safety
services, among other fees, but
after a presentation by Randy
Young of Henderson, Young and
Co., most commissioners seemed
in favor of raising the EMS fee
and instituting the new parks fee.
Currently, the impact fee for
EMS is $49 for residential homes
in Polk; the new fee would almost
double that price to $97.
Young told the commission
that after 15 years of not being
updated, the current fee was not
in line with the rising costs of
equipment.


Gerald Cochran's criticisms of
a succession of Bartow city man-
agers, city commissions, and city
government in general have
become a regular part of commis-
sion meetings for years, but City
Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge told
Cochran on Monday night that he
stepped over the line when he
confronted a work crew.
If it happens again, police will
be called, DeLegge said.
Cochran told the commission


"It's like a penalty on govern-
ment, as they fall behind and
costs go up," he said.
The fee is derived from the
annual cost of ambulances and
EMS stations ($48,439), divided
by the number of responses
(2,299), equaling a cost of $21.07
per call.
Young said that based on the
number of houses in the county,
each house's expense for EMS
services totals $3.52 per year.
When that number is multiplied
by the life expectancy of a house
(27 years as prescribed by
Internal Revenue Service guide-
lines) the fee becomes $97, round-
ed up.
The increase would increase
the county revenue from a fiscal
year 2003-04 total of $448,140 to
an estimated $887,317 next year.
Currently, the county charges
no fees for parks, but several oth-
ers do, including Dade County,
which topped the list for park
impact fees at $1,453.
To reach a recommendation,
Young and his staff took the
regional value of the park lands
($82.6 million) and divided it by
the county population (498,769)
to arrive at a regional value per
capital value of $166. The regional
value refers to parks used by
many people, such as parks with
sports fields.
The area value ($60.8 million)
was then divided by the popula-
tion of unincorporated Polk


that he watched a crew of tree
trimmers on North Street the
street on which he lives work-
ing in front of a neighbor's house
earlier in the day. The crew
wouldn't trim the branches on the
resident's side of the tree, he said,
telling her it was on private prop-
erty.
Instead, they gave the resident
a number to call at city hall, he
said.
Cochran said most of the crew


(308,592), to total $197. Area
parks were defined as smaller,
neighborhood parks.
These totals were then added
together and multiplied by the
average number of people living
in each household in Polk (2.47)
to arrive at $897.
Young suggested this number
be reduced by $443, as the county
has historically found money, up
to $900,000 in some years, to
devote to parks each year.
He told the county that with
an annual building permit num-
ber of 3,500, Polk could see $1.5
million for parks with this new
fee.
In an effort to ward off confu-
sion, Young said he would recom-
mend the county keep its current
policy regarding manufactured
and mobile homes. This policy
treats manufactured and mobile
homes in single family residential
areas those not in mobile home
parks, for example as single
family homes.
This policy, he said, would pre-
vent the confusion a blended rate
would cause. A blended rate,
made up from the mobile home
and residential rate, would also
lower the overall fees for residen-
tial homes, costing the county
some money it could collect from
the new fee.
Commissioners are expected to
discuss the plan in more detail on
the day of the public hearing.


left for lunch at 10:45 a.m. and
didn't return to the job until 12:30
p.m.
DeLegge said the crew was
delayed in its work until a sur-
veyor was called to determine
where the property line is located.
"Mr. Cochran verbally
harassed the crew," DeLegge said.
"The next time it happens, they
have been instructed to call the
police department."

of Don and Debbie McLean of
Bartow.
The morning wedding and re-
ception took place at Master-
Peace Place in Lake Wales.
Rev. Mike Tedder, friend of
the bride and groom, performed
the ceremony. Reverend Tedder
charged the couple individually,
and then as a couple, they took a
vow of intent for a Christian life
together.
Kelli Johnson, friend of the
bride, served as maid of honor,
and Amy Hardee, sister of the
groom, served as bridesmaid.
The groom's father served as
best man, and the groom's
brother-in-law, Tim Hardee,
served as groomsman.
Zoe Carroll, niece of the bride,
was flower girl, and Dalton and
Logan Carroll, nephews of the

The bride wore a candlelight
satin, strapless gown, accented
with platinum embroidery, fea-
turing a lace-up back criss-
crossed down to the bride's
waist.
The bride's attendant's wore
pale pink satin, strapless, knee-
length dresses with a satin black
sash tied at the waist. The
flower girl was dressed in can-
dlelight satin with an overskirt
of bouffant netting, decorated at
'the waist with tiny sweetheart
roses.
The Victorian mansion was
banked with white hydrangeas
in large urns along the railing
for the garden ceremony. The en-
tire mantle in the receiving area
was covered with a variety of
roses and greenery draping over
the fireplace.
Each table for the reception
was adorned with clusters of
pink hyacinths in contemporary
glass vases.

-Balinese Saying


Bartow Lions were told by
Central Florida Development
Council of Polk County executive
James J. DeGennaro during
their April 19 luncheon meeting
that Polk County is the "county
of choice" for locating new busi-
nesses, as well as an exceptional
place to raise a family.
Goals for CFDC, the speaker
said, include enhancing the com-
petitiveness of Polk County's
business climate; making Polk
County a priority location for na-
tional and international busi-
ness; promoting growth and ex-
pansion for businesses; and cre-
ating an environment that at-
tracts and retains a creative
young workforce in Polk County.
"Polk needs to decide who we
want to be," DeGennaro said.
He also noted that:
U.S. Highway 27 is being
expanded to six lanes.
Coca-Cola has built the
largest citrus juice plant in the
world in Auburndale.
Clear Springs purchased
18,000 acres of land near Bar-
tow, on which 6,000 new homes
will eventually be built.
The corporate city limits of
Mulberry and Bartow now reach
Lakeland.
Orlando is pushing develop-
ment of Polk County from the
east.
Haines City is expanding
due to a new rail park there.
Lake Wales has built a huge
business park which is now half
full.
Future growth in the county
will be northwest of Mulberry.
In closing, DeGennaro said
that the proposed regional air-
port, slated for location on the
Polk and Hardee County lines,
will be several years in develop-
ing as a certificate of need is be-
ing sought.
The speaker was introduced
by Bill Naberhaus.

Larry Alexander Receives
Recognition from Lakeland DAR


Larry Alexander, recently re-
tired Polk County public safety
director, was awarded a certifi-
cate of appreciation by the Lake-
land Chapter Daughters of the
American Revolution at their
April meeting.
Nominator Jean Harden,
chapter chairman of the Na-
tional Society DAR committee on
Americanism, cited Alexander's
exemplary dedication to the task
of coordinating the efforts that
insured the safety and security
of the citizens of Polk County
during the 2004 hurricane sea-
son.
A meet and greet session,
honoring both Alexander and


visiting Past Regent Lola De-
Groff, preceded the
presentation.
Light refreshments were
served.
The meeting's program,
"American Indians and the Na-
tional Museum," was presented
by Nell Truitt, FSSDAR Ameri-
can Indian chairman and mem-
ber of the Alafia River Chapter
DAR. She described several In-
dian schools supported by the

The Polk County Democrat


Bartow Daughters of the American Revolution
Attend 103rd Annual State Conference


Florida Daughters of the
American Revolution gathered in
Orlando for the 103rd annual
state conference.
More than 300 delegates par-
ticipated in the election of new
state officers.
Rebecca Lockhart of Jackson-
ville will serve as state regent.
The speaker for the National
Defense luncheon was Richard
Stratton (USN Ret.).
Captain Stratton was a Navy
pilot during the Vietnam War.
After being shot down in action,
he was a prisoner of war for six
years. He told of the trials en-
dured by the POWs at his camp,
and reflected on the political
happenings that affected the be-
havior of his fellow captives.
He also told of the strength of
the POWs, and the many ways
they were able to survive even
when it was challenging not to
cooperate with propaganda re-
quests.
One outstanding defeat,
Stratton said, was that of a
young seaman who was able to
memorize the names of all in the
camp and bring that valuable in-
formation back home when he
was released.
After his return home, Strat-
ton served on the Veterans Ad-
ministration advisory committee
on prisoners of war.
Bartow Chapter DAR received
a FSSDAR Honor Roll Gold Cer-
tificate award for participation
in the state projects. Bartow
Chapter members attending the
event were Freddie Wright,
Anne Raulerson,- and' GaroFl
Schmidt.

At the chapter meeting in


April, Helen Gienau, National
Defense chairman, presented in-
formation on the history of the
National Guard, which cele-
brated its 368th birthday in De-
cember 2004. The oldest regi-
ment on rolls in the U.S. Army is
the Massachusetts National
Guard, which was formed in
1638.
The Militia Act of 1791 placed
every able-bodied, free male citi-
zen of age 18 in the militia, and
the states had control of the
units.
However, militiamen in the
13 colonies formed almost half of
the Continental Army.
In 1824, New York militia re-
named themselves the National
Guard, and this was used from
then on.
In 1878, Congress passed the
Posse Comitatus Act, which said
federal military could not be
used as law enforcement, and so
the states turned to the militia
to restore order when needed. In
1903, the Guard was brought
into the nation's national de-
fense structure, with extended
army training and equipment
added in 1913.
National Defense Acts of 1920
and 1933 extended federal
authority in which the President
may order National Guard units
into active duty during national
emergencies.
In 2001, two combat battal-
ions were put on active duty, and
by 2004, one-third of the entire
Guard were on active duty. They
have served in Iraq, Bosnia, Ko-
sovo, Afghanistan, and else-
where.
It has been said of the soldiers

The Polk County Democrat April 21, 2005


dtia


Relay for Life has become more than
simply a fund-raising event in Bartow and
Fort Meade: it has become a way of life.
The Bartow event raised $140,000; the
Fort Meade relay raised more than $42,000.
To put things in perspective, that's close
to $10 for every man, woman and child liv-
ing in each of the two communities.
The amounts have climbed steadily each
year.
For the past two years, Fort Meade
joined Bartow in its Relay for Life, but
staged its own event again this year, and
raised nearly twice as much money as it
did in 2002.
Relay for Life replaced a much simpler
American Cancer Society fundraiser, the
Making Strides Against Cancer walkathon.
As with many similar events, participants
were encouraged to get sponsors (though
many simply wrote a check to "sponsor"
themselves).
By contrast, the Relay for Life is a major
community activity, one for which plan-
ning for next year's event typically begins
as soon as this year's event ends.
The relay itself is an overnight event,
but related activities begin weeks in
advance as teams stage fund-raising
events as predictable as bake sales and
lunches and as novel as a raffle for a vin-
tage automobile and a prettiest male legs
contest.
Cancer survivors are paid special hon-
ors; their numbers and their presence
underscore the progress that medical sci-


ence is making in diagnosis and treatment
of a disease that for earlier generations was
a virtual death sentence.
A solemn luminary ceremony recog-
nizes cancer patients and survivors, and
honors the memories of those whose lives
the disease has claimed.
Relay for Life involves hundreds of citi-
zens in both Bartow and Fort Meade, and
dozens of volunteers help put the event
together. But every event has a leader who
must pull together the pieces; in Bartow,
this year's chairman was Neal Duncan,
and in Fort Meade, the co-chairmen were
Barbara Manley and Melony Bell.
Lives will be saved, patients will be
served, and ultimately cures will be found
because of the Relay for Life.
It is an event worthy of the tremendous
community effort behind it.

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

Predators and Tough Decisions


Some years ago at a news staff
meeting, I was struggling with
how to treat a particularly sensi-
tive story.
For many editors, I'm sure, the
decision would have been a sim-
ple one, but for me, balancing the
news value of the story with the
pain it would cause some inno-
cent bystanders was a struggle.
Our newest reporter looked at
me and asked: "Are you sure
you're in the right business?"
"Sometimes I'm not," I replied.
I have long since forgotten
what the story was, but such pol-
icy decisions still arise from time
to time. I continue to seek the
opinions of the news staff, but the
buck stops with me.
After more than 40 years in
newspaper management, I still
make no claim to infallible judg-
ment. From time to time, I revisit
a decision.
The three horrible murders of
children by sexual predators in
west central Florida in recent
months have brought up one


such decision for review.
Several years ago, a veteran
police officer asked if we would
publish names, addresses and
photographs of persons required
by Florida law to register as sexu-
al predators or sexual offenders.
It was a tough decision, and he
acknowledged as much.
Our decision: not to publish
the names and pictures on a rou-
tine basis.
Our reasoning: it is a basic
premise of criminal law that once
an offender has been punished,
whether it's by paying a parking
ticket or by serving 25 years for a
major felony, the debt has been
paid. Should we extend that pun-
ishment by becoming a conduit
for continuing public opprobri-
um?
Sexual abusers of children are
surely the lowest of the low, even
recognized as such within prison
populations.
If there is a crime for which
many of us could agree that "lock
'em up and throw away the key"


is merited, child sexual abuse is
that crime.
But life without parole is a
punishment used sparingly.
Most sexual offenders and sex-
ual predators (Florida law has
separate definitions) eventually
are released from prison. Like
other offenders, some stay out of
trouble, while others commit new
offenses.
Some made one terrible mis-
take which they will never repeat;
others are incorrigible repeat
offenders.
In an imperfect world, it's
impossible to determine in
advance which offenders are
which.
Is justice served when the truly
remorseful and recovered offend-
ers are held up to public scorn
after paying their debt?
Or does the danger posed by
the incorrigibles merit putting the
heat on all past offenders?
And how about truly innocent
defendants who reach a negotiat-
ed plea rather than risk a trial? In


the absence of physical evidence
or impartial witnesses, allega-
tions of sexual molestation are
largely "she said/he said" cases.
Any journalist who has been cov-
ering police news for a lot of
years has seen cases rooted in
child custody disputes or other
shaky evidence.
That is life as it is, not life as it
should be.
The solution for which we
opted is to encourage police
agencies to make door-to-door
notification when a registered
sexual predator or offender
moves into a neighborhood, and
to publish frequent reminders
that names, addresses and photos
of predators and offenders are
available at all police agencies, at
many public libraries, and on the
Internet.
The right decision?
I hope so; even after 40 years,
some answers aren't simple.

the price bounced higher than it
was before the war to 30.9 for
regular gasoline, and to 32.9 for
premium.

included county officials as well
as members of the private sector
and representatives of environ-
mentalist groups, will be asked to
serve again, if their schedules
permit, and slots will be filled by
new members as needed.
Bartow police have made three
arrests in the last three days, deal-
ing with battery, robbery and
extortion, and burglary. Most
unusual offense: A man forcibly
took a ring from a woman's fin-
ger, and told her he would pawn
it unless she paid him to get it
back. She told him where to meet
her the next day to get the money
- and police arrested the robber
when he met the woman as
agreed.

Searching to add more
healthy meals to your diet?
Florida beef produces, as a
part of the Beef Checkoff Pro-
gram, have teamed with the
American Heart Association
(AHA) to fund a heart-healthy
recipe booklet.
The booklet, called "Fast and
Flavorful Beef: Heart-Healthy
Recipes," features recipes with
lean cuts of beef, cooking tips
and nutritional information.
Some tips from the booklet
are:
When you're selecting a
lean beef cut, look for the words
round or loin in the name, such
as sirloin or round tip.
Trim away visible fat before
cooking.
Look for lean ground beef,
which is labeled as 91 percent
lean or leaner. This ground beef


can have as few as five grams of
total fat per three-ounce serving.
Rinse ground beef with wa-
ter to reduce fat.
Use low fat cooking meth-
ods, such as grilling, broiling,
roasting, pan-broiling, stir-frying
and braising. Less tender cuts of
lean beef should be marinated in
a tenderizing marinade, such as
Italian dressing or salsa, before
cooking.
Cook with fresh ingredients
that add flavor without extra fat,
like lemon juice, hot and sweet
peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes
and ginger.
To receive a copy of the book-
let, send a check in the amount
of $1 to National Cattlemen's
Beef Association, Dept. AHA,
P.O. Box 670, Bloomingdale, IL,
60108.

TOPS Offers Tips To Relieve Stress


Stress is a fact of life.
Today, the list is never ending
- we're stressed about our jobs,
growing children, aging parents,
our health, even about being
stressed.
The symptoms can be un-
pleasant headaches, back-
aches, upset stomach, sweaty
palms and dry mouth.
More importantly, chronic
stress also drains the energy
your body needs to protect itself
from damage to heart and blood
vessels.
TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sen-
sibly) Club recognizes that stress
can also get in the way of good
eating habits. When stressed, we
often eat too much and eat the
wrong things, just when our bod-
ies most need moderation and a
healthy diet.
We're also likely to skip exer-
cise even though physical ac-
tivity is exactly what we need to
stay on top of stress.
People under stress crave
comfort. And eating delivers that
comfort by increasing the levels
of "comforting" chemicals in the
brain, such as endorphins and


dopamine. While it is true that
the body under stress needs
more energy, short term or high
calorie fixes such as fat, sugar or
caffeine are just the wrong an-
swers.
TOPS Club offers the follow-
ing strategies to deal with stress:
Focus on calming yourself.
Practice deep breathing, walk
away or count to 10 when under
pressure.
Compartmentalize your
stress. Imagine locking it in a
suitcase and setting it aside in
the attic.
Describe your feelings on
paper.
Talk things out with a sym-
pathetic listener.
Punch a' pillow, listen to
music or take a short walk.
take a hot bath.
Banish high-calorie foods. A
whole-wheat cracker or crisp
baby carrot will look better if a
candy bar isn't an option.
Keep healthy snacks such
as fat-free pretzels on hand. Eat-
ing fat-free carbohydrates boosts
serotonim in the brain to keep
you calm.

ment is offering free physical to

Why Is It?

A person wakes up after sleeping

on an ADVERTISED mattress
and pull off ADVERTISED pajamas,
bathes in an ADVERTISED shower,
shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,
brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED tooth-
paste,
washes with ADVERTISED soap,
puts on ADVERTISED clothes,
drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee,
drives to work in an ADVERTISED car
and then...
refuses to ADVERTISE, believing that it doesn't pay.
Later, if business is poor,
the person ADVERTISES it for sale.

BHS Weightlifters

Qualify For State


Jackets Looking For Win Friday

After Season Split With Highlanders


April 21, 2005


The Polk County Democrat


By THOMAS Felsmaier
BHS Sports, Correspondent
On Thursday, April 7, the
Bartow weightlifting team trav-
eled to Sebring to compete in the
1A Section 7 state qualifying
meet.
At the qualifying meet, the
first place lifter gets an auto-
matic bid to the 1A state meet.
The next three lifters get put
into a pool with all the other sec-
ond, third, and fourth place lifter
from around the state.
Then the top nine out of the
pool get to go to state.
Bartow had twelve lifters fin-
ish in the top four spots.
In the 119 pound weight class,
Wilfredo Zabalo bench pressed
230 pounds and clean and jerked
210 pounds.
His 440 pound total placed in
first in the sectional meet and he
was also the highest 1A quali-
fier.
Todd Sims won the 139 pound
weight class with a total of 505
pounds.
He benched 285 pounds and
clean and jerked 220 pounds.
T.J..Jackson's total of 515
pounds put him in third place at
sectionals, but he was high
enough in the pool
to qualify for state.
The 154 pound Jackson
benched 275 pounds and clean


and jerked 240 pounds.
Bartow's other 154 pound
lifter, Tim Daughtry, totaled 455
pounds and just missed out on
state.
Bartow had two lifters qualify
for state in 169 pound weight
class.
Brandon Bridges 'bench
pressed 305 pounds and clean
and jerked 275 pounds for a total
of 580 pounds.
Lamar Reese benched 305
pounds as well, but only clean
and jerked 235 pounds for a total
540 pounds.
The 183 pound Wallace Bell
grabbed first place at sectionals
with a total of 620 pounds, which
was the team best for the night.
He bench pressed 345 pounds
and then went on to clean and
jerk 275 pounds.
Albert Rodriguez, who is also
in the 183 pound weight class,
had a total of 520 pounds, but
didn't qualify for state.
In the 199 pound weight class,
Geno Johnson benched 330
pounds and clean and jerked 285
pounds on his way to second
place at sectionals.
His 615 pound total easily
put him into the state meet.
Steven Rodriguez won the 238
pound weight class with a total
of 550 pounds. He bench pressed
305 pounds and clean and jerked
245 pounds.
Bartow's two heavyweights
placed second and third, but
couldn't quite qualify for state.
Brad Hiers totaled 575
pounds and Danny Franks to-
taled 570 pounds.
Last year, Bartow placed sec-
ond at the 1A state meet. This
year, Bartow's eight qualifiers
will head up to the University of
Florida's O'Connell Center in
Gainesville on Saturday, April
23.
Once there, they will look to
win the school's third state title
in five years and to avenge their
loss to last year's champ, Blount-
stown.


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

With the district baseball
tournament looming in the first
week of May, regular season dis-
trict match-ups for the Bartow
High School Yellow Jackets are
becoming more important by the
day.
Bartow (18-4, 6-3) has only
lost four games all season, but
will need a win against Winter
Haven if it wants higher seeding
to avoid a first round game at
the district tournament.
"Looking at it, it looks like
we're going to have a first round
game now after things were look-
ing so good for a while," said
Bartow Head Coach Eric
Danapilis. "It's going to be a bat-
tle. But you know what, you've
got to play well to win. If we
come out and play the way we're
capable of, we can beat anybody,
but we've got to play like that."
The Jackets got off to a good
start on Monday, with a 4-1
domination of non-district oppo-
nent McKeel. Their cause how-
ever, was set back on Tuesday,
when the Lake Wales Highland-
ers got revenge on their own
turf, 6-4.

Bartow 4, McKeel 1
Hurler Brandon Patterson got
the start against McKeel (13-7),
and the junior worked six in-
nings of shutout ball, limiting
his opponent to four hits and no
walks while striking out eight.
"When (Patterson) gets ahead
of hitters, hell get ground balls
all day, and that's exactly what
happened tonight," Danapilis
said.
Patterson said his success
was as simple as "I hit my spots,
I got ahead in the count and I
got outs." "
Senior Cameron Stevens re-
lieved Patterson in the seventh
and sandwiched a walk in be-
tween to strikeouts before


McKeel first baseman Vaughn
Stewart knocked in the only run
McKeel scored. Things got dicey
for Stevens when an error put
two men on, but the senior recov-
ered to pop out the next batter
and end the game.
Danapilis said it has been dif-
ficult to get Stevens into the ro-
tation with the pitching trifecta
of Collier (5-1), Murphy (4-2) and
Patterson (5-1) and the regular
success Mark Donhaiser has had
closing out ball games.
The Jackets got the bulk of
the offensive production from the
bottom half of the line-up, many
of whom were previously hitting
below .200. Particularly effective
was senior Lezon Dixon, who
went three for three with an RBI.
and a run scored.
"I've kinda been experiment-
ing with my swing, trying to
change it around, so hopefully
that shows up in the future,"
Dixon said.
Coach Danapilis said he was
glad to see the bottom of the or-
der getting on base, saying "
Some of the guys figured out
that if you out the ball in play,
you make things happen."

Bartow 4, Lake Wales 6
The next evening in Lake
Wales, the Yellow Jackets were
able to get on base frequently
thanks to five Highlander errors,
four of them from third baseman
Justin Green. It wasn't enough,
however, as the Jackets were
three-hit by senior right-hander
John Church and reliever Justin
Green, who started against Bar-
tow on March 29.
Church struck out six and
forced ground balls resulting in
two double plays before Green
took over in the seventh to finish
the game.
Pitchers benefited from the
strong wind blowing into High-
lander Hill Field, transforming
potential home runs into simple
pop flys.


The Jackets were trailing by
one early when Matt Davis, hit-
ting out of the eight spot,
smacked and RBI double, scor-
ing Patterson.
Defensively, Bartow starting
pitcher Jack Murphy had his
hands full with lead off hitter
Clay Knuth, who went two for
three and scored every time he
got on base.
The Jackets added two runs
in the fourth thanks to some
Highlander errors and another
in the fifth, when Brent Delh
scored after getting on base by
an error.
The Highlanders answered
back by jumping all over Murphy
for four runs in the bottom of
that inning.
Another error by the third
baseman in the top of the sev-
enth inning allowed the tying
run on base with two outs, but
the Jackets could not complete
the rally.
Despite the loss and the possi-
ble post season ramifications,
Danapilis remained upbeat.
"We have got to come out and
play. The sun comes out tomor-
row and we have to go out and
play," he said. "Winter Haven is
a good team, but there is no rea-
son we can't beat them."
Up next, the Jackets have
Winter Haven at home on Friday
at 7:30 p.m. Drew Collier is ex-
pected to get the start for Bar-
tow and the game will be broad-
cast live on 1130 AM.


NOW WITH A RECORD OF 5-1, Bartow pitcher Brandon Pat-
terson got his most recent victory after holding McKeel Academy
scoreless through six innings of work on April 18. Patterson is ex-
pected to get his final start of the regular season on Monday against
Mulberry. (Staff photo by Rustin Dwyer)

Lady Jackets Relish

Wins At End Of Season


By MARK KING

It's been a busy month of on-
the-road games for the Bartow
Lady Jackets, but the regular
season is winding down.
Wednesday night, the team
defeated the Merritt Island team
7 to 3, bringing their season re-
cord to 20 2.
Candace Howell started the
game, but gave way to Lindsay
Littlejohn in the third to record
the win, her 13th of the season.
Howell re-entered the game in
the seventh to close out the con-
test.
Whitney Little and Mallory
Butler led the Bugs, batting
with three hits each. They were
closely followed by Elizabeth
Howell and Kara Rutenbar with
a pair of hits apiece.
Head coach Glenn Rutenbar
was eager to give his team
credit.
"You know, we lost to Auburn-
dale, but then we went to Miami,
where the team played three top
level teams," he said. "We
could've folded, but we go down
there and eight of our nine start-
ers got three to five hits each, so
that was good."
For the three game stretch,
Kara Rutenbar and Staci Fer-
nandez had five hits apiece,
while Little and Rachael Jack-
son recorded four each.
Next was Butler, Elizabeth
Howell, Littlejohn and Jerrica
Sanchez with three hits.
On the longest road trip of the
year, the Bugs defeated their foe


from last year's state champion-
ship game, Pembrooke Pines
Charter 7 to 0, with Jerrica San-
chez in the pitcher's circle.
Then, with Lindsay Littlejohn
pitching, the Jackets out-paced
Miami-Pace 11 to 1.
Finally, Sanchez won another
outing, this time against Miami
Gulliver Prep 3 to 0.
Tonight, the bus ride won't
seem nearly as long, as the La-
dies travel to Eagle Lake to take
on the Lady Thunder of Lake Re-
gion High School.
The game time is 7:30.
On Friday, it will be the last
softball game of the regular sea-
son, and it will be played at The
Hive.
The Senior Night festivities
will start early and the game
time will be 7:30, as the Lady
Jackets honor their seniors in a
game against the George
Jenkins Lady Eagles.
District play will begin next
week at the Bartow softball com-
plex. At 5:30, it will be a duel of
the devils when the Winter Ha-
ven Blue Devils battle the Red
Devils of Kathleen.
Then at 7:30, Lake Wales
faces off against Celebration.
On Thursday, the winner of
the Lake Wales and Celebration
game will play the Auburndale
Bloodhounds at 5:30, while the
Lady Jackets will tangle with
the winner of the Winter Haven
and Kathleen contest.
That will set the stage for the
District Championship game on
Friday night at 7 p.m.

Bartow Relay for Life Raises


$160,000: Best In Polk County


Bartow's Relay for Life fundraising event for the
American Cancer Society raised $160,000 plus, more than
the $135,000 ACS goal set for Bartow and $20,000 more
than last year's Relay.
The total put Bartow's event at the top for Polk County
Relays by $90,000, General Chairman Neal Duncan said
during closing ceremonies Saturday morning.
Beginning Friday evening, 46 teams set up "camp" sites
carrying out a Community Champions theme. Many offered
food, trinkets and raffle tickets to raise money. Team mem-
bers and walkers from the community went around the
track through the night and into Saturday morning because
"cancer never sleeps."
Winning the Best Team Campsite (left) was the First
United Methodist Church Youth Team, who built a complete
pirate ship. Michael Brooks (left) and Aaron Bruns take a
turn at the helm.
Clockwise from above: Purple survivor shirts stand out
during the opening ceremonies led by Duncan; a helicopter
and a motorcycle from Polk County Sheriff's Office led the
opening lap; luminaria decorated to honor and remember
those who have fought and are fighting cancer; tents
rimmed the oval and spread into the field; walkers pass lit
luminaria; Polk County Health Department had a message
for reducing the risk of cancer; Floral Lakes "Oldies but
Goodies" followed an All American theme.

Reading and Writing

AreC ood For You
-Reading and writing are to the mind what diet, and exercise are to
the body. Just as food nourishes the body, so too does reading nourish
the mind..And, just as exercise strengthens the body, so to6 does writ-
irig strengthen our mind. When we write, we are forced to make our
ideas clear, and this mental exercise improves our mind. Of'c'ourse,
we should pay careful attention to the particular.quality of what we
are reading and .writing since much of today's popular reading mate-
rial is of questionable value, and not all writing is equally strenuous
exercise for the mind. We should seek out books which will teach us
something or that will inspire us to become a better person, and then
we should try our hand at writing things which will likewise teach or
inspire others:.So, we should consider turning off the television and
instead read a good book, and then tell someone about it in writing.

SFinally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable,.
whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, what-
ever is gracious, ifthere.is any excellence, if there is anything
worthy of praise,-think about these feelings. ..

Out of My Range by Dawn Wade


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

A key fault I have, and I can
only talk about one fault at, a
Time, is the tendency to get busy.
I often find myself chasing my
own tail. What I will do with it
when I catch it is beyond my un-
derstanding. However, this not-
withstanding, I fall into the trap
time after time of getting too
busy for my own good.
The faster I try to go, the less
I seem to accomplish.
This past week proved no ex-
ception; in fact, everything came
to a head on Monday. I had my
"To-Do-List" all prioritized and
neatly written on several 3x5
cards stuffed in my shirt pocket.
Earlier I went through them
item by item to make sure I
could maximize the day. After
all, an old saying says, "The
early bird catches the worm."
Being the turkey I am, I have
no idea what I'm going to do
with the worm when I catch it,
particularly if it's early in the
morning when all I want is a
good cup of coffee.
Yet, I can often be found imi-
tating that "early bird," scurry-
ing around with my list of impor-
tant things to do.
Getting back to my Monday
catastrophe and I can't think
of another word that adequately
describes, lastMonday. Sure, I've
had catastrophes before. But this
one was the wicked stepmother
of all catastrophes.

Former First Methodist
School students and their fami-
lies, as well as others in the com-
munity, are invited to the First
Methodist School Celebration at
First United Methodist Church
in Bartow this Sunday, April 24,
at 11 a.m.
This is the 32nd year that
First Methodist School has been
providing education to children
in a Christian environment.
The service will highlight the
ministry of the school with par-
ticipation from students, teach-
ers, and parents.
During the service:
Pastor Roy Lowe will lead
the children in singing "It is
Good," with first through sev-
enth grades singing a verse de-
scribing God's activity on the

cards, I made some mental notes
as to how long each job would
take. Returning those cards to
my shirt pocket, I smiled the
smile of one who has conquered
his day. I felt good about myself
and was anxious to get started.
My day started out rather
well. In fact, I discovered by mid-
morning I was ahead of sched-
ule. I chuckled to myself and
thought, next time I'll have a
longer '"To-Do-List."
Suddenly, everything came to
a screech owl halt.
I needed to pick up something
at my office, which would only
take a moment. I pulled up to
my office door, jumped out of the
car, and unlocked the office door.
The office door can only be
locked from the outside with a
key. The inside has a handicap
bar according to the building
code. I thought I would save time
by unlocking the door and then
locking it while I went inside to
retrieve the item I needed. This
would mean when I came to
leave I could walk out, shut the
door behind me, and it would
lock automatically.
This would save me exactly
.00003 seconds of time. As time
is precious, I thought it worth
the effort.
The plan was going fine.
Walking past my desk, I laid my
keys on top of my desk. About
this time, I remembered some-
thing I needed from the car and
dashed out to retrieve it. Just as

through third grade will be in-

I've never heard anyone say,
"I came to Jesus, but He didn't
receive me."
If you're not a Christian, it's
because you haven't come to
Christ.
For more than 2,000 years,
His own words have been stand-
ing on record, "Him that comes
to Me I will in no wise cast out."
You'll come to Him now, won't
you?


I got to my car, I heard the door
slam shut and one thought me-
andered through my stunned
mind THE KEYS.
The keys were exactly where I
had left them. On my desk in my
office.
My first thought was to panic.
So, for about seven minutes I
luxuriated in sheer panic.
My second thought was, how
am I going to get inside the
church building?
I must confess, my second
thought drowned out my first.
Some may have the luxury of in-
dulging in panic, but I was on a
schedule. My "To-Do-List" was
begging to be done that day.
I circled the building three
times and then laid down in
sheer bewilderment. Not one
door was unlocked. Not one win-
dow was accessible from the out-
side. All the effort put into mak-
ing our building burglarproof
was my nightmare in shining
alarm.
I thought of breaking a win-
dow, but what if someone saw
me? Also, I'd have to pay for the
damages.
In my mind, I went over eve-
rybody who had a key to our
church. Everyone I could think
of was out of town or working.
Even my wife was at Daytona
Beach.
Then I had a brilliant
thought. I must confess I don't
have many, but when I do, it
brightens up my day. The


builder of the church might have
a key.
For some odd reason I had my
cell phone with me, so I called
the builder.
Unfortunately for me, he did
not have a spare key to our
building. My heart sank into the
sole of my right foot because I
had no options left.
Then the builder said, "I'll
send one of my carpenters over
to take a door off and let you in."
I did not know that could be
done, but I was glad for any help
I could get at this point.
Within a few moments, the
carpenter showed up. As'he got
out of his truck, I could see a sly
smile smeared all over his puss.
I took it like a man a man
locked out of his own office.
He spent about an hour tak-
ing the door off its hinges. Just
as he finished my cell phone
rang. A lady from the church
with a spare church key was five
minutes away.
I never told the carpenter
about the last minute key be-
cause he worked so hard taking
the door off and then putting it
back on again.
Only one key in life really
matters and that is Jesus who
said, "I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me," (John
14:6 KJV).
He is the only key that opens
the door to heaven and I can
never lose him.

Make Your

Vacation Spot

Kid-Friendly

Simple precautions
to ensure a safe trip
With the onset of warm weather,
it's only natural lor families to head
straight for beaches, campsites and
other popular vacation spots. But if
you're traveling with small children, it
is important to make sure your retreat
is as safe and secure as it is fun and
relaxing.
When packing the bug spray, sun-
screen and beacli umbrella, don't for-
get to throw some childproofing items
in your suitcase as well. Whether you
own a timeshare by the shore, rent a
cabin in the woods or simply book a
hotel room, taking the following pre-
cautions can prevent accidents from
happening.
Install Safety Gates
Wandering little ones could be at
risk offal ling down stairs or getting
their little hands into kitchen drawers.
Keep those areas off-limits by installing
safety gates, which can serve as barri-
cades between rooms and at the tops
and bottoms of staircases. Make sure
the gate you choose is expandable, so
you can adjust it to fit various-sized
entrances.
Avoid Window Areas
If your travel gear includes cribs or
playpens, be careful where you set
them up. Never place these items or
any type of low-standing furniture
under or near a window. Curious tod-
Sdlers exploring new surroundings can
accidentally fall through an open win-
dow or window screen. Whenever
possible, place cribs and furniture on a
wall with no windows.


Don't put children at risk check vacation retreats for potential hazards like elec-
trical outlets and older blinds and shades lacking today's safer cord designs.


Eliniinate Small Hazards
It may seem like common sense, but
electrical outlets in vacation homes often
remain uncovered. When away from
home, carry along a supply of outlet cov-
ers to keep tiny fingers out of electrical
sockets. Ifa nightlight is necessary, make
sure it is a "cool" one; higher wattage
bulbs could burn curious hands.
Infant care products such as baby
powder, diaper ointment and first-aid
cream also can be harmful if little ones
put them anywhere near their mouths.
When unpacking, make sure these
items are stored out of baby's reach. In
case an emergency does occur, be sure
you have the phone number of the local
poison control center.


Replace or Retrofit Older Blinds
Mini-blinds and pleated shades
made before 2001 should be replaced
or retrofitted since they pose a possible
strangulation hazard for young chil-
dren. Looped cords should be elimi-
nated and cord stops installed. If you
don't know how old the blinds or
shades in your vacation retreat are, it's
best to be prepared. Cord stops can
easily be retrofitted on mini-blinds
and corded shades. Before leaving on
vacation, order free cord repair kits
from the Window Covering Safety
Council (WCSC). Kits can be ordered
online at www.windowcoverings.org
or by phoning the WCSC at
1-800-506-4636. HP

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.

O311 This code is reserved
for non-emergency police
and other governmental
services. In communities
where this code is in use, it provides
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.


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.

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


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.

- 611 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.
This system, created by the Leg-
islature in 1991, provides access
to the telecommunications network for
individuals with speech, hearing or dual
sensory disabilities.


ONE

CALL


811 The 811 code cur-
rently provides access to
the business offices of 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.


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.

Rice


Is


So


Nice


For


Dinner


Rice is one of the most versa-
tile of foods,'
Not only- is it good as a side
dish, it also can be added to
almost any main dish.
Rice dishes are found in a vari-
ety of cuisines, letting the adven-
turous chef move away from bor-
ing, everyday dishes.
Additionally, long grain and
brown rice is a tasty way to meet
the daily requirements for whole
grains.
This week we celebrate rice
with recipes from Uncle Ben's,
found at www.unclebens.com on
the web.

2 tbsp. butter or margarine

In a large 2-quart saucepan,
heat the butter or margarine.
Add the rice and cook for about
3 to 4 minutes.
Add the green beans and the
water, bring to a boil and reduce
to a simmer.
Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
While rice is simmering, in a
small skillet toast the almonds
over medium low heat (should
take about 3 minutes).
When all liquid has been
absorbed, gently stir in the
almonds and serve.
