Edwards Will Certify


Two Petition Initiatives


To County Commission


CITY CREWS working Saturday morning prepared Main Street
for a lane shift during streetscaping. Parking will be prohibited on
Main Street between Broadway and Jackson Avenue until construc-
tion is complete. Notices will be posted along the affected downtown
area. Parking will be available on the side streets and the Oaks
School's parking lot. Cars parked on Main Street will be towed at the
owners' expense. Traffic is shifted to two travel lanes on the north side


of Main Street. The southern lanes will be used as a staging and stor-
age area for the streetscaping work on the south side of Main Street.
Removal and replacement of sidewalks will start on the southeast cor-
ner of Broadway and Main Street and move eastward. Pedestrian
access to all businesses will be maintained. (Staff photo by Peggy

Commission May Change



Starting Time of Meetings


For a number of years, Bartow
city commissioners have met for a
work session at 5 p.m. on the first
and third Mondays of the month,
then reconvened for their regular
meeting at 6:30.
Most of the work sessions have
a way of dragging out for the full
hour-and-a-half, sometimes even
longer.
But the past two work sessions
have lasted only about 45 min-
utes, and commissioners are con-
sidering changing the starting
time of their regular meeting,
allowing themselves to reconvene
as soon as the work session ends.
The problem comes in letting
the public know when the regular
meetings and in particular
public hearings will begin.
Although work sessions are open
to the public, and usually draw a
half dozen or more spectators,
more citizens arrive at 6:30 for
the start of the regular business
meetings.
Commissioners asked City
Atty. George Dunlap to study a
way to begin the regular meetings
as soon as the work sessions end.
The commission also:
Referred to Dunlap a com-
plaint by Sylvester Ridgeway, a
Lakeland roofing contractor, that
he was refused a license to work
iri Bartow. He said the city's


building official, Donnie True,
told him the city "is no longer
issuing permits to outside con-
tractors." "I was devastated,"
Ridgeway told the commission.
"We're not a fly-by-night roofing
company."
Noted reports by City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge that:
(1) Welsch Construction was
the low bidder on the walking/jog-
ging track in the planned park
east of Bartow High School, with
a bid of $190,072.50. McDonald
Construction Corp. has cleared
out the pond in the middle of the
park at no cost to the city.
(2) The low bid to extend a
water line out U.S. Highway 98
North and E.F. Griffin Road came
in at $632,000, which is $186,000
below budget.
(3) The commission's fiscal
review committee will meet at
city hall at 10 a.m. on May 2 to
review the results of a water and
sewer rate study.
Heard Al Snapp suggest that
the planned redesign of Main
Street will create traffic conges-
tion, and ask when the secondary
entry road to Bartow Regional
Medical Center will be built. "I'm
not going to guess on that one,"
DeLegge replied.
Heard Commissioner Pat
Huff, on behalf of the Bartow-Fort


Meade Chapter of the American
Cancer Society, thank the city for
its support of the Relay for Life.
Gave preliminary approval
to zoning board recommendations
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.
Recognized Molly Egli for
serving on the library board.
Proclaimed April 17 to 23 as
Public Works Week.
Appointed Josephine
Hazelton Hunt to the firefighters
pension board.
Passed on final reading ordi-
nances to correct errors on the
city's zoning map by rezoning the
Precionaire Inc. manufacturing
plant from institutional to indus-
trial, and the Palm Cemetery
property from industrial to insti-
tutional.

Polk Gets Debris Removal Funds,


FEMA May Be Here Until 2007


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

While the hurricane season of
2004 may be over, Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) representatives might
still be around as far into the
future as 2007.
"Our estimates have FEMA
personnel working through 2007
for individual and public assis-
tance projects," said Dan Craig,
director of FEMA's recovery divi-
sion. "That's not to say that cities
and municipalities won't have
their issues resolved at that
point, but for some individuals
the process could extend into the
next few years."
Polk County will edge its way
closer to complete recovery when
it gets a new wave of reimburse-


-ment for debris removal, in the
form of a huge check in the com-
ing weeks, according to FEMA.
Polk, which already has received
$5.9 million from FEMA for
debris removal, will be getting
another $6.5 million in about "13
to 15 working days," said Frank
Koutink, deputy state coordinat-
ing officer for recovery.
The $5.9 million from FEMA
represents 90 percent of the actu-
al debris removal cost. The state
of Florida will be responsible for
five percent (roughly $300,000)
and the county will pick up the
remaining five percent.
The $6.5 million is part of more
than $27 million in public assis-
tance funds announced on
Wednesday. Of that, $17 million
will go towards debris removal in
Polk and Escambia Counties and


the city of Pensacola.
The remaining $10 million has
been "expedited" by FEMA to go
toward emergency protective
measures for Orange, Lee and
Osceola Counties and the Orange
and St. Lucie County sheriff's
offices. According to Craig, emer-
gency protective measures are
usually costs incurred from shel-
tering and evacuating citizens
from a city or equipment and
overtime expenses for a sheriff's
office.
To date, FEMA has released
close to $900 million in Florida
relating to the 2004 hurricane
season.
"This is just another wave (of
funding)," Craig said. "You can
expect many more press confer-
ences in the near future:"


up to $500,000 from Citrus &
Chemical Bank for five years at
3.1 percent on behalf of Bartow
Municipal Airport to replenish
cash reserves spent on property
acquisition.
Authorized the city to borrow
$1,266,406 from SunTrust
Leasing Corp. Bank at 3.45 per-
cent for five years and $294,802
at 3.57 percent for seven years to
purchase vehicles and equipment.
Renewed the city's contract
with the county for mosquito
spray service.

No later than Tuesday, per-
haps as early as this afternoon,
Elections Supv. Lori Edwards will
report to the Polk County com-
mission that enough valid peti-
tions were submitted to require a
referendum on bringing constitu-
tional officers under the authority
of the county charter, and limit-
ing them to two consecutive
terms in office.
A third initiative, to cut their
salaries in half, came up 61 sig-
natures short in County
Commission District 1, Ms.
Edwards said.
The county's constitutional
officers, who now operate inde-
pendently of the county commhis-
sion, are the sheriff, courts clerk,
elections supervisor, property
appraiser, and tax collector. The
proposed amendment would
make them elected department
heads under the supervision of
the county manager.
Formal delivery of the results
to the county commission follows
a ruling by Circuit Judge John F.
Laurent last week that Ms.
Edwards acted properly when she
allowed Dewey Smith, spearhead
of the petition movement, an
additional 30 days to file petitions
after her office determined that
there were not enough valid sig-
natures to put any of the issues
before the voters.
The next move, in Ms.
Edwards' opinion, is up to the
county commission, which under
the charter may either enact the
changes by ordinance or submit
them to the voters.


When a referendum is held,
assuming that is the commis-
sion's decision, is unclear, she
said.
The charter reads: "The Board
of County Commissioners shall
cause a Charter amendment pro-
posed under section 8.3.1 or 8.3.2
to be submitted to the electors for
their approval. If a general elec-
tion is scheduled more than sixty
(60) days after the proposed
amendment is proposed or vali-
dated, the question shall be
placed on the ballot at a special
election held concurrent with the
general election, or at any earlier
special election called for that
purpose."
Regarding the calling of an
election, Ms. Edwards said:
"I think it takes action by the
county commission; I don't need
to be interpreting this. If it were
real clear, I wouldn't be dancing
around it."
As to the petitions, she said:
"There's no gray area on the
results."
Certification of the results of
the petition drive was delayed by
a suit for injunction filed by the
Polk Committee for Effective
Government, a group which
opposes the petition efforts.
It alleged that Ms. Edwards
erred in allowing Smith an addi-
tional 30 days beyond the one-
year deadline for filing petitions.
She granted the extension after
finding that there were not
enough valid signatures submit-
ted within the one-year period.
In his order .ruling in favor of
Ms. Edwards' decision, Judge
Laurent quoted from the charter:
"The allowable period for
obtaining signatures on the peti-


Storm Damages Area

Near Highland City


Thirty to 40 homes were
affected by what may have been
a tornado passing through the
Highland City area Sunday
night.
Damage was estimated close
to $250,000, but no injuries were
reported, according to, Pete
McNally, Polk County
Emergency Management pro-
gram manager.
Although a tornado warning
had been issued for Polk County
by the National Weather Service,
that agency hadn't determined if
Sunday's storm actually was a
tornado.


Polk's Hurricane


Recovery Costs


Total $36.8 Million


Thus far, Polk County govern-
ment has identified $36.8 million
in costs related to recovery from
the three hurricanes that swept
across the county over a space of
44 days last year.
The largest amount, $21 mil-
lion, was incurred in debris
removal.
The county has submitted for
reimbursement for those costs,
along with:
$2.1 million for emergency
protective measures.
$1.4 million for buildings
and equipment.
$500,000 for roads and
bridges.
$300,000 for parks, recre-
ation, and other.
$100,000 for water control
facilities.
Of that amount, the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) and the state have
approved payment for $15.7 mil-
lion in claims, of which $6 million
has been received.
Other costs which the county


has identified, but for which it
has not yet submitted claims for
reimbursement, are $5 million to
General Physics, the company
which assisted the county in dis-
aster recovery, with emphasis on
debris removal, and $1.6 million
classified as "other."
In a report to the county com-
mission, Kevin Fish listed as
"FEMA exclusions" $4.1 million
for debris removal and $700,000
for other expenses.
The claims FEMA has denied
are primarily for collection of
debris from private roads and on
state highways, Fish said. The
state will reimburse the county
for the latter, he added.
The county has a consultant
who is preparing challenges to
claims that FEMA has denied, he
said.
The county's costs do not
include claims by cities and indi-
viduals, or $11.1 million for haz-
ard mitigation grants for which
the county is applying.


The storm passed through the
area between about 7 and 8 p.m.,
most heavily hitting the area
between Yarborough and
Strickland Roads, around
Feather Drive and Dale Street,
McNally said.
Debris was scattered around
the area, and homes were with-
out power for several hours.
Damage included pool enclosures
and sheds being destroyed and
pieces wrapped around poles and
landing in neighboring yards.
No homes were made unin-
habitable, McNally said.


Construction of the Fort
Fraser trail, a Rails to Trails
project on the former site of the
CSX Railroad tracks from the
north side of Bartow. to County
Road 540 (Winter Lake Road)
south of Lakeland, is scheduled
to begin this July and to be
completed by May of 2006.
The length of the trail is
seven-and-three-quarter miles.
Plans for the project, which
has been on the drawing board
since 1998, were outlined to the
Bartow city commission by
Gary Warner of the Glatting
Jackson planning firm.
The southern terminus will
be on North Street in Bartow,
he said.
Trail heads are planned on
the Polk Community College
branch campus, in Highland
City, and near the Winn-Dixie
store in Bartow, Warner said.
The asphalt trail will be
built on the eastern edge of the
rail corridor in order to leave
room for widening U.S.
Highway 98.
Signs and distinctive logos


tion shall be completed not later
than one years after the initial
receipt of the petition by the
Supervisor of Elections. If the
petition is rejected for insufficien-
cy of the number of signatures,
the sponsor shall have an addi-
tional thirty (30) days within
which to submit additional signa-
tures for verification."
Judge Laurent found the word-
ing ambiguous, and wrote:
"It could be argued that either
the entire petition process must
be completed within one year, or
the sponsors have one year plus
an additional thirty days."
In choosing the latter option,
"The supervisor of elections
reached a logical conclusion with-
out an abuse of discretion," he
said.
In February, Dewey Smith,
whose Home Rule Charter
Committee circulated petitions to
bring the constitutional officers
under the charter, limit them to
two consecutive terms, and cut
their pay in half, was indicted on
two felony counts and two misde-
meanors.
Smith was charged with:
Uttering a forgery, a third
-degree felony.
Criminal use of personal
identification information, a sec-
ond degree felony.
Failure to report a campaign
contribution, a first degree misde-
meanor.
Accepting an illegal cash
campaign contribution, a first
degree misdemeanor.
The first two counts.have to do
with petitions gathered by paid
petition circulators purporting to
have been signed by the supervi-
sor of elections.
The latter two stem from a
$5,000 payment to the committee,
which Smith maintains was a
loan and not a campaign contri-
bution.
Smith has denied that he
knowingly did anything wrong.
That case is still in the court.
The same grand jury that
indicted Smith criticized the
vagueness of the charter, said Ms.
Edwards had not done her job
correctly, and recommended that
the petition drive be thrown out.
State Sen. J.D. Alexander has
proposed legislation to regulate
the activities of people who are
paid to gather petitions to put an
issue on the ballot.
Alexander's legislation "will
help with what went wrong here.
It would at least cut down on the
potential for fraud," Ms. Edwards
said.


will highlight the significance
of the area spanned by the
trail, including Fort Fraser,
railways, citrus, the Peace
River, bald eagles, the First
Seminole War, Bartow, Polk
County, early transportation,
pioneer medicine, and cattle.
Interpretative signs will be
spaced about a half-mile apart.
Two old rail trestles will
become covered bridges for the
trail.
The construction budget for
the trail is $4.3 million.
Commissioner Pat Huff
asked if there is a possibility
that a pedestrian bridge could
be built over Van Fleet Drive.
Warner said that is a possi-
bility, and that the bridge,
called a flyover, would cost
close to $1 million. A bigger
problem is spanning the Polk
Parkway, he said.
Jennifer Daniels asked if a
bike path could take cyclists
into downtown Bartow.
That option is under consid-
eration, Warner replied.

Meringues: Eye-Catching,


Elegant, Easy
Dear Betty,
I'd like to serve my mom's favorite
dessert for Mother's Day, but it starts
with meringue shells and I've never
made them. Any tips?
Gettysburg, Pa.
Afroth of egg white, sugar
and air, meringue can be a
sweet, feather-light crisp
shell or a fluffy cloud floating on
a pie. Either way, it creates an eye-
catching, elegant, but surprisingly
easy springtime dessert. These
meringue-making tips will help
yours turn out beautifully:
aPick a cool, dry day. If it's damp,
the meringue will absorb moisture
from the air and become sticky and
spongy.
mStart with cold eggs because they
separate more easily. Separate the
whites and yolk carefully even
a speck of yolk will keep the whites
from reaching their fullest volume.
*Let the whites stand at room temp
for 30 minutes or microwave to
warm before beating to get the best
volume.
mUsing an electric mixer, beat in
sugar gradually, about 1 tablespoon
at a time, so that your meringue
will be silky smooth and not gritty.
Continue beating until the meringue
stands straight up in stiff peaks when
you lift the beaters.
For crisp meringue shells:
*Bake until they're thoroughly dry
and crisp. If not, they'll be limp
and gummy. Cool the shells in the
oven with the heat turned off.
nFill just before serving so they won't
absorb moisture and become chewy.


AskBETTY


When making soft meringue topping,
follow these steps:
SSpread the meringue over the hot
pie filling right up to the crust so
it "seals." If it's sealed, it won't
shrink or ooze liquid after baking.
Use a metal spatula or the back of
a spoon to swirl the meringue into
peaks for that pastry-shop look.
SAfter baking, cool the pie away
from drafts from a door or window
that can cause the meringue to shrink.
Dear Betty,
What's the best way to separate eggs?
Mankato, Minn.
tart with a nifty, inexpensive
little gadget called an egg
separator. Choose one that has
big enough slots to let a thick white
pass through easily. With a separator.
there are no more bits of shell, no
broken yolks and no chance to con-
taminate the egg with bacteria that
might be on the outside of the shell.
Using eggs straight from the fridge,
crack each egg, open the shell and
let the yolk drop into the center of
the separator. The white will slip
through the slots in the separator.

April is Sexual Assault

Awareness Month


April is recognized as Sexual
Assault Awareness Month and is
observed to focus the public's at-
tention on the devastating ef-
ects of sexual violence.
Polk County Health Depart-
ment (PCHD) and Peace River
Center's Rape Recovery & Re-
source Center encourage citizens
to become better educated and
more aware about this public
health issue.
"Myths and misconceptions
about sexual assault and rape
must be corrected in order to
support those who have been
sexually assaulted and protect
them from being further trauma-
tized and victimized," PCHD Di-
rector Dr. Daniel Haight said.
"Educating and making the pub-
lic aware of sexual violence is vi-
tal to the success of preventing
future attacks."
According to the Florida
Council Against Sexual Violence
(FCASV), rape and other forms
of sexual assault are the most
-under-reported crimes in Amer-
ica. Sexual violence hurts vic-
tims and the people who care
about them. Sexual violence im-
,pacts survivors' health, their
emotions, and their day-to-day
lives.
The FCASV reports:
One out of every eight adult
women has been the victim of
forcible rape, which equates to
more than 12 million women in
America.
* In Florida, a sexual offense
is reported to law enforcement


every 42 minutes.
Rape is responsible for 11-
20 percent of teen pregnancies.
Rape also is responsible for
increased substance abuse and
mental health problems, includ-
ing major depression, suicide,
and post-traumatic stress disor-
der.
According to a 1996 study
by the National Institute of Jus-
tice, total costs of sexual vio-
lence, excluding child sexual
abuse, are estimated to be $127
billion a year nationally.
Locally, Peace River Center's
Rape Recovery & Resource Cen-
ter offers free and confidential
services to victims of sexual vio-
lence. Services include support
groups, counseling, referrals,
and on-site rape exams that are
provided by a PCHD Advance
Registered Nurse Practitionei
(ARNP).
The 24-hour crisis hotline for
survivors of sexual violence in
Polk County is 413-2707, or toll-
free 877-688-5077.
According to the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement's
2003 Crime in Florida Report,
12,756 sex offenses (forcible
rape, forcible sodomy, and forci-
ble fondling) were reported in
Florida in 2003.

Health website at www.doh.

From The Fort Meade

Historical Museum


By LETA WRIGHT


On Tuesday, the volunteers at
the Fort Meade Historical Mu-
seum held their monthly birth-
day celebration for five birthday
members.
The members celebrating
birthdays were Jeanette Albrit-
ton, Joyce DeVane, Velma How-
ell, Betty Speer and Lauretta
Sthreshley.
The lunch was covered dish at
my home in the tea room.
The highlight of the celebra-
tion was a huge birthday cake
with five candles blown out by
the birthday girls.
The variety of food was won-
derful. All the dishes were deli-
cious. Those volunteers are
really good cooks. No wonder
they put out a cookbook four
years ago. The book has sold
hundreds of copies, but we still
have a few left.
Another surprise during the
party was the presentation of a
gift to Dora Capito, who is mov-
ing to Ohio. She has been a very
supportive member and volun-
teer. She will be missed. The gift
was a framed photo of the volun-
teers.
As she looks at picture, she
can reminiscence about time
spent with each individual.
Those present at the party
were Jeanette Albritton, Verna
Atwell, Elsie Barnett, June
Black, Dot Blackburn, Marian
Clyatt, Dora Capito, Mavis Car-
michael, Joyce and Floyd De-
Vane, Janet Hancock, Martha

In the month of May, we will

Olma Hendrick will be honored.
We will hold a covered dish

The museum renovation has
started and the building looks
terrible. All the walls and ceil-

will start on the second floor.
The workers discovered a


child's high top boot between the
first floor ceiling and the second

is a historian, said it had to be at
least 100 years old.
So, the boot will be on display
when we move back in the mu-

The workmen also dug up an
old horseshoe in the bandstand

we are trying to find out. You

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

Wearing Your Color in Your Shopping Cart

Pa


Syndicated Content

Available from Commercial News Providers"


Just when you thought the
election was over and we could
all be friends again until Hillary
and Jeb are battling it out for
President in 2008, here comes a
web site determined to make
political recriminations a year
'round sport.
My friend Mary spent a couple
of days in Tallahassee on a Zonta
Club junket last week, and
brought me a copy of the
Tallahassee Democrat.
The Tallahassee Democrat had
a significant influence in my life,
since I worked there for three
years while attending Florida
State University, and I met Mary
Grossenbacher there. She was a
proofreader for the FSU newspa-
per, the Flambeau, which was
produced at the Democrat's
printing plant.
A friend pointed her out to me
across the newsroom, comment-
ing on how pretty she was, and I
agreed, and asked her for a date.
For which she turned me down.
But to make a long story short,
she accepted my second invita-
tion, and we've been married for
40-some-odd years.
Anyway, I have many warm


memories of the Tallahassee
Democrat, not the least of which
being it's the only job in which I
ever got a 25 percent pay raise. It
was back when the minimum
wage went from a buck to a buck-
and-a-quarter an hour.
A Page 1 story in last
Saturday's issue is about a web
site, BuyBlue.org, which tries to
influence your shopping habits
based on which corporations give
the most contributions to which
political party.
For those of you who (like me)
can't remember the color code for
states, the networks have
declared red to be the color for
states that voted Republican in
the Presidential election, and blue
to be the color for the Democratic
states. Sort of makes you long for
black-and-white TV again.
And while the purpose of
BuyBlue.org is to encourage lib-
erals to buy their meals and lin-
gerie and other stuff from blue
merchants, it also shows us con-
servatives' where we can pur-
chase our indulgences from red
merchants.
The BuyBlue.org web site (isn't
it wonderful that we no longer


have to fool around with all that
"http" stuff and slashes and back
slashes any more?) lists 25 com-
panies that are 100 percent blue,
including Frederick's of
Hollywood.
There are 12 companies that
are 100 percent red, including
Fruit of the Loom.
I think there's a liberal-vs.-con-
servative message there.
When it comes to food, liberals
may find it easier to lose weight,
because with the exception of
Starbucks, I can't find a single
food vendor or manufacturer in
the 100 percent blue list that does
business in this area.
There is a pizza chain, a candy
manufacturer, and a pet food
company among the 12 most
right-wing, 100 percent red cor-
porations.
I find it significant that the
largest group 27 is made up
of companies which divide their
financial support equally among
Democrats and Republicans.
What they lack in political consis-
tency they make up for in politi-
cal realism.
For my part, I will continue to
buy my food based on low carbo-


hydrate and caloric content, an
my durable goods based on pric
service, and warranty. What tl
companies choose to do with tt
profits they make is up to them.
Incidentally, I could not fin
Heinz ketchup on the list, probe
bly because it is manufactured bj
a corporation which is owned b
another corporation which i
owned by another corporation
ADM and Beatrice are probably
in the mix somewhere.
I am the proud owner of a bot
tle of W brand ketchup, a produce
which came out around election
time. It was given to me by a higf
school classmate. I won't say
who. Okay, his son is e
Republican congressman, if thai
gives you a hint.
The label explains that if you
didn't support Kerry, you
shouldn't support his wife's
ketchup company. It's a reach,
but it's good for a chuckle.
After opening the bottle,
you're supposed to keep it in the
refrigerator.
Presumably on the far right.


Is This Congress'


Commitment To 'Ethics'


Notwithstanding the presumption of
innocence to which accused persons are
entitled, it is a little unsettling that the
majority leader of the United States House
of Representatives is the primary focus of
the House Ethics Committee.
Tom DeLay is indeed entitled to the
same cloak of' innocence as .a common
criminal; it just seems that maybe the tax-
payers are entitled to members of
Congress who don't need it.
And the functioning or malfunction-
ing.- of the ethics committee is less than
reassuring.
At issue is who paid for overseas fact-
finding trips as Congressional junkets
are known that DeLay made to Europe,
and his association with a lobbyist who is
reported to be the subject of investigation
by both Congress and criminal investiga-
tors.
If the truth were known, the sad fact is
that DeLay's defense if the issue ever
comes to a public forum may well be
that "everybody does it," or if not every-
body, at least enough people to make the
conduct acceptable by Congressional stan-
dards:
But whether or not the ethics committee,
formally known as the House Committee
on Standards of Official Conduct, will ever
conduct an official investigation remains
in doubt.
S The committee, its membership evenly
divided between Democrats and
Republicans, is deadlocked over what, if
anything, to do about the accusations of
impropriety.
The chairman of the committee, a
Republican, said he wants to appoint
another Republican member of the com-


mittee a lawyer to "review various
allegations" against DeLay.
The ranking Democrat on the committee
called that proposal "inadequate on a
number of grounds."
Rep. Allan Mollohan (D, W.Va.) asserted:
"If we're going to have an ethics commit-
tee, we have to do it right."
Dream on.
The equal distribution of membership
by party presumably is intended to insure
equality, if not impartiality, in ethics inves-
tigations, but thus far, it appears to be
being used by each side for political
advantage.
One might hope that a committee made
up of 10 of the 495 members of the House
would have at least one member sufficient-
ly devoted to enforcing "Standards of
Official Conduct" that he would be willing
to depart from his own party's position to
allow the committee to do its job.
Thus far, that has not happened.
Does this represent the commitment of
Congress to ethical conduct of its leader-
ship?

Oaks School Has Smaller Classes


BARTOW Recently The
Lakeland Ledger has printed a
series on the charter school con-
cept, particularly in Polk County.
With a few exceptions, most of
the information has tarnished the
reputations of these schools. I am
a parent of a child in the sixth
grade at The Oaks Middle
Academy. This has turned out to
be one of the good decisions.
One important factor is the


student/teacher ratio. The Oaks
Middle Academy appealed to me
because of the smaller class size
and individual attention teachers
would be able to provide. Union
Academy and Bartow Middle
School would have been over-
whelming.
The Oaks Middle Academy
has provided an alternative, a
public school in a private school
environment, relying on parental


involvement and teacher sup-
port.
We have been told that The
Oaks Middle Academy has been
placed on probation for not meet-
ing racial ratios. What hasn't
been made clear is the number of
additional minority students it
needs to meet the criteria; the
number is two. That deficit has
more than been made up for with
the applicants for the 2005-2006


school year.
I would encourage any parent
of a middle school age child to
consider The Oaks Middle
Academy. I feel you will be
pleased with the high academic
standards and the hand picked,
qualified staff, instructing your
children.

MELANIE BONTRAGER


We need to save the K.I.S.S.
Principle, which seems to be dis-
appearing from our lives into
complete oblivion.
I'll bet there are even people
reading this who never heard of
,the K.I.S.S. Principle. The K.I.S.S.
Principle is advice to the citizenry
to: "Keep' It Simple, Stupid."
I was talking to my friend,
Christine Machold, yesterday
and it seems that we have both
had the same problem turning
on the heat in our-homes.
We had new thermostats put
in this year by the folks that take
care of our heat and air condi-
tioning. Yesterday, it turned cold
up here in Georgia and I decided
to turn on the heat.
Ha!
My new thermostat was a
square gizmo that had all kinds
of adjustments and variations on
it. The only problem was that-I
couldn't turn it on. This thermo-
stat was just too much. It had


places where you could put
down the time you wanted it to
come on. It had mysterious
arrows and tabs on it. It had a
place where you entered the day,
date and year. I didn't know why
it wouldn't turn on.
I did know that it had three
AA batteries in it, which I had
given the technician the day
before to light up the front so you
could see what you were doing.
They wouldn't turn on, either.
I am an old person and am fed
up with gadgets invented by
some kid who just got out of elec-
tronics school who is trying to
show off. I know his parents are
very proud of him, but he can
probably turn on the heat at their
house for them.
I grew up in Florida where it
does get cold, although no one
wants to admit it. Every once in
awhile you need some heat in the
house.
My Grandpa Magill knew


what to do when the temperature
dropped. He had a wood stove in
the dining room that heated up
an area large enough to put in a
wash tub full of water and give
the kids a bath. All he needed for
the cold house was a log, some
kindling, some kerosene to get
things going, and a match. One
match.
Of course, there were homes
further north in Florida that had a
fireplace or two in them.
Then the coal oil heaters came
along, followed by wood burning
stoves, followed by electric stoves
and eventually central heat. None
of these were difficult to get
going. Anyone could do it.
But now, if you want to turn on
the-heat, you have to be an engi-
neer or just plain lucky.,
I called my heating and air
conditioning man, Rodney
Garceau, and told him that new
thermostat just wouldn't do. I


wanted one like we put in the
house when it was brand new. He
said, wasn't sure they make them
any more, but he'd see what he
could do.
Two days later, he came over
ind said, "Well, they had one in
Macon." It was a beautiful ther-
mostat. It was round, silver col-
ored and on the right was a
switch that points to either On or
Off. On the left is one that points
to Cool or Hot. There is a dial
with degrees of temperature on it.
That's it a perfect example
of the K.I.S.S: Principle.
I called my friend Chris, to tell
her of my problem with the new
thermostat, and she had had the
same trouble and had hers
replaced, too.
It's nice to know that if you get
cold around here, you don't need
a degree in engineering to get
warm.

Give Your Special


Manatee This Mot


This Mothers Day, add a
manatee to your family.
Show your mom how much
you care by adopting a manatee


in her name.
You can't take the manatee
home, but Save the Manatee
Club (SMC) will send a photo
and biography of the newest ad-
-* edition to the family. An adoption
S* certificate, membership hand-
book, and newsletter subscrip-
tion are also included. Manatees
- are animals your mom won't
have to feed, walk, or clean up
after and they don't talk back.
It's hard to resist the charm of
S- manatees. Gentle and slow mov-
ing, they can be found in the wa-
terways of southeastern United
States primarily in Florida.
Today, there are only about
2,400 manatees left. They are an
endangered species. Manatees
have a low reproductive rate. In
addition, many manatees are
killed each year by watercraft
collisions. They are crushed in
S floodgates and canal locks, and
they become entangled in fishing
S gear. The greatest longtime
threat to manatees, however, is
loss of habitat.
Twenty manatees who regu-
larly winter at Blue Spring State
Park in Orange City, have been
chosen for one of SMC's three
-- Adopt-A-Manatee programs.
Adoptees at Blue Spring State
Park include manatee moms
such as Phyllis, Success, and Lu-
Scille.
* In the spring of 1991, Phyllis
gave birth to twins, a rare occur-
-- rence for manatees. She recently
came into Blue Spring this Win-
ter with a new calf
-- Success is another manatee in
S SMC's adoption program. She
S hasn't missed a visit to Blue
Spring since her birth in 1982.
Success is the proud mother of
four calves.
Lucille was born in 1980, and
she also regularly Winters at
Blue Spring. She is the mother
of Lola, Lufa, Luke, Liege,
in the Know Lance, and Loopy. Recently, Lu-
Bartow cille brought her seventh calf, a
he Democrat girl, into Blue Spring for a Win-
ter visit.


SMC's other adoption pro-
gram is at Homosassa Springs
State Wildlife Park.
The park is a rehabilitation
facility for manatees who are re-
covering from injuries before be-
ing released back into the wild.
Five female manatees who
cannot be released into the wild
for life threatening reasons call
the park their home.
They include Amanda, who
suffered injuries from a water-
craft collision, and her daughters
Ariel, Star, and Betsy.
Rosie is another park resi-
dent: She is a gentle manatee
who likes to "baby-sit" the
younger manatees in rehabilita-
tion.
Five manatees frequently
seen in the Tampa Bay area and
along the west coast of Florida
are the latest additions to Save
the Manatee Club's Adopt-A-
Manatee program. Most of these
manatees spend all or part of the
year in Tampa Bay.
The manatees chosen for the
Adopt-A-Manatee program in-
clude two males and three fe-
males. Jemp and Vector are the
male manatees. Jemp was res-
cued in 1995 after being exposed
to red tide. He is known to travel
in a wide range along Florida's
west coast and is often seen in
the company of females.
Vector is also a traveling
manatee, but he is known for
traveling solo.
The female manatees in the
program include Elsie, Ragtail,
and Ginger. Unfortunately, Elsie
is easily identified by research-
ers because her tail is badly mu-
tilated from an encounter with a
boat propeller. Ragtail is also
known for her disfigured tail.
She was first identified by re-
searchers in 1993, and she. is
known for hanging out in Tampa
Bay in the Summer. Also in-
cluded in the program is a mana-
tee who frequents the west coast
of Florida, south of Tampa Bay.
Her name is Ginger, and she has
been seen every Summer since
1994 in the Marco Island area.
Ginger has two known calves
one of them named Ale. Re-

By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer
Yesenia Nunez, a Fort Meade
High School junior, is one of 10
migrant students in the state,
the only student from Polk
County, who was chosen from a
group of 300 applicants in Flor-
ida to visit Washington, D.C., for
Inauguration Week 2005,
through the Florida Migrant In-
terstate Program.
Miss Nunez' week-long trip
was funded by the Murray DeY-
oung Educational Foundation
and coordinated through Close
Up, one of the nation's largest
civic education organizations.
The trip included tours of
monuments and buildings, and
meetings with government rep-
resentatives. Miss Nunez partici-
pated in critical thinking and
leadership development work-
shops with students from around
the country, and attended the
swearing-in ceremony and inau-
gural parade on Pennsylvania
Avenue, and an inaugural ball.
She saw the president three
times, twice "really close," she
said.
Miss Nunez was nominated
for the trip by virtue of her
strong academic standing, lead-
ership abilities, and extracur-
ricular activities. She maintains
a grade point average of 3.8 and
takes honor courses in anatomy
and physiology.
She has been active with Polk
County Teen Court;,the Family,
Career, and Community Leaders
of America Club (FCCLA); and
volleyball. She also has been in-
volved in a summer migrant pro-
gram, supervising younger chil-
dren and teaching them to read.
Throughout her academic ca-
reer, which has always been in
Fort Meade schools, she has won
numerous "Good Citizen"
awards, community service rec-
ognition, outstanding migrant
student, and perfect attendance
awards. She speaks Spanish
when at home, and English at
school. She is often used as an
interpreter for Spanish residents
in the area.
Miss Nunez said the trip was
a first for her in several ways: a
first time to see Washington,
D.C., the first time she saw
show, and the first time she has
traveled by herself.


She wrote an essay about be-
ing a migrant and about her
family. Each year in March, her
father, Jose Nunez, leaves to
pick tomatoes, peppers, squash,
or other vegetables in North
Carolina. Her mother, Rosa
Nunez, and her 15-year-old sis-
ter, Esperanza, along with her
two-year-old sister, MariaJose,
leave to join him after school is
out.
"My father always sends us
back two weeks before the next
school term begins, because he
was determined we would attend
only one school. He attended 15
schools when he was, growing
up," Yesenia said.
For the last seven years, Rosa
Nunez has worked in the school
system and is now enrolled in
college.
"It is important to my dad
that my mom is at home when
we are home," said Yesenia.
Because Yesenia's grandfa-
ther has been able to farm land
in the Frostproof area, last sum-
mer she remained in this area,
and worked with him to earn the
money she would need for this
school term,
After high school, she said,
the college she attends will de-
pend on scholarships she re-
ceives.
"I will attend either Polk
Community College, the Univer-
sity of South Florida, or Florida
Southern," she said. "I will work
as I go to college to help with ex-
penses."
Miss Nunez said she would
like to get a teaching degree in
science with a minor in Spanish
education. She wants to continue
to educate herself, going for a
masters and doctorate, and has
thought about becoming a veteri-
narian someday.
S"The trip to Washington, D.C.,
was wonderful. I want to go
again," she said.

Lady Jackets Close Season With Wins,

Rutenbar Honored for Reaching 500
By ~ RK KING


-, 4t

Going inlo the. top of the
fifth inning of last, Thursday
night's softlfall game played at
Lake Regiop between the Bar-
tow High School Lady Jackets
and the TIiunder .of Lake Re-
gion High School, one stat
served as a premiider of games
from the past between the two
in-county rivals. each team
had 10 of stnething.
But this ,isn't the past, this
is now. Baitow's ,10 were 10
hits. The Tiunder offense had
10 strike-outs.
How timls have changed. In
the past, it was the Thunder
who seemed to be able to
snatch the victories away from
the Yellow Jackets with strong
batting and stronger pitching.
The tide jha-s turned, and it
has become; a sea of orange,


K's of her own, while fielding
her position with the finesse of
a seasoned varsity player. Her
future looks bright.
Friday night, the Lady Ea-
gles of George Jenkins High
School flew into The Hive for
the final game of the regular
season. They left the park with
their wings clipped, as the
Bugs emerged victorious with a
3-0 decision.
Lindsay Littlejohn was the
