TAKE YOUR CHILD TO WORK DAY was more than an obser-
vance Thursdsay for these girls, who put in a full day's work at
McDonald's Restaurant in Bartow. With some even starting at 5 a.m.,
the girls took orders at the drive-through window, worked the front
line, and prepared sandwiches and drinks. Clockwise from top left:
Lindsey Hall, 11 (left), and Megan Pierce, 12, fill a customer's order.


Megan's father is supervisor of the Bartow and Mulberry McDonald's.

order at the drive-through. Elasha Wearing, 12, completes a drive-
through transaction at the next window. (Staff photos by Dawn

City to Consider Creating Storm Tax


An ordinance creating a
stormwater management tax to
pay the cost of collecting and dis-
posing of stormwater will be con-
sidered by the Bartow city com-
mission this evening.
The amount of the tax remains
to be determined.
That decision will come in two
weeks, according to a timeline
developed by the city's consulting
engineer, Chastain-Skillman, Inc.
An ordinance establishing the
tax will be considered by the city
commission on first reading
tonight, and if passed, will come
up for a public hearing and final
passage on June 6, according to a
plan presented by Chastain-
Skillman.
An ordinance establishing the
tax rates is scheduled to be con-
sidered on May 16, and if passed,
will come up for a public hearing
and final passage on June 20.
Steve Dutch of Chastain-
Skillman will outline the plan to
the commission at a work session
today at 5 p.m. at city hall. The
commission will reconvene for its
regular business meeting at 6:30.
Also to be considered on first
reading tonight are ordinances
increasing the city's water and
sewer rates each year through the
2009710 fiscal year.
Most residences now pay a
monthly, meter charge of $7.06,
plus $1.63 per 1,000 gallons for
the first 6,000 gallons of water.
The rate for 6,000 to 8,000 gallons
is $2.23 per 1,000 gallons, and the


rate Tor consumption above 8,000
gallons is $3.02 per 1,000 gallons.
Under the proposed ordinance,
the new rates would go up 35
cents a month for the meter
charge, eight cents per 1,000 gal-
lons for the first 6,000 gallons, 11
cents per 1,000 gallons for the
next 2,000 gallons, and 15 cents
per 1,000 gallons for consumption
of more than 8,000 gallons.
Rates in each category for
water customers who live outside
the city limits are 25 percent
higher.
For sewer service, the monthly
meter charge would go up by 63
cents, from $19.05 to $19.68, and
the disposal charge would go up
by five cents per 1,000 gallons,
from $1.59 to $1.64.
Rates for sewer service also are
25 percent higher outside the city
limits.
Residential sewer rates are
capped at 10,000 gallons per
month on the assumption that
any water use above that volume
is for lawn watering and doesn't
go into the sewer system.
Also scheduled for passage on
first reading tonight is an ordi-
nance to change the starting time
of the commission's regular busi-
ness meetings. At present, the
work sessions begin at 5 p.m., and
the regular meetings begin at
6:30. Occasionally the work ses-
sions end 30 minutes or more
before the start of the regular
meeting.
City Atty. George )unlap has


prepared three ordinances for the
commission's consideration:
(1)'Begin the work session at 5,
with the regular meeting to follow
immediately thereafter. If there
were no work session, the regular
meeting would begin at 5.
(2) Begin the work session at 5,
with the regular meeting to follow
immediately thereafter. If there
were no work session, the regular
meeting would begin at 6:30.
(3) Begin the regular meeting
at 5, and make a work session the
first item of business.
Florida law makes no distinc-
tion between work sessions and
regular meetings; both are open
to the public .under Florida's
Government in the Sunshine
Law. Work sessions tend to be less
formal.
Other items on tonight's agen-
da:
Swearing in of newly-elected
Commissioner Brian D. Hinton
and re-elected Commissioner Leo
Longworth, and recognition of
outgoing Commissioner Cal
Adams.
Approval of a one-year gen-
eral employees union contract
with AFL-CIO Local 1010.
Election of the mayor and
vice-mayor for the coming year.
Presentation of a downtown
parking garage study by Pat
Steed of the engineering firm of

May 1 to 7 as Charter School
Week, May 2 to 6 as Nurses Week,

Bartow police investigators and special agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement trav-
eled to New York last week and made an arrest in a murder case that had gone unsolved for more than
19 years.
George Bernard McCloud, 54, was taken into custody at his home
in Rochester, charged with the death of 23-year-old Sharon
McWhorter, whose nude body was found behind Union Academy
Junior High School in Bartow (now Union Academy Magnet School), '
just a few blocks from her home, in the early morning hours of March
29, 1986.
An autopsy showed McWhorter died of strangulation. Her car was '
found at Carver Recreation Center, across the street from the school.
A witness said they had seen McCloud with McWhorter in her car be
the night she disappeared, two days before her body was discovered.
There were other clues which identified McCloud as a suspect
early on in the investigation; however, there wasn't enough evidence
to arrest him at the time, detectives said.
The investigation stalled and was listed as cold until April of 2002,
when Bartow Police Chief Erik Sandvik ordered the case be re--
opened.
Utilizing new technology, investigators resubmitted materials
from the original crime scene to the FDLE Crime Laboratory in
Tampa, along with a DNA sample from McCloud, obtained by Bartow "
Detective David Wyant while McCloud was in prison on unrelated
charges.
The completed analysis showed samples of hair found at the crime
scene matched McCloud's DNA. George Bernard McCloud

Mosaic To Eliminate


65 Mechanics Jobs


Sixty-five jobs in mechanical
shops of the Mosaic Co. will be
eliminated this month when the
phosphate. company outsources
its maintenance and repair opera-
tions, Mosaic announced last
week.
The 65 mechanics, all of whom
were employed by IMC Global
Inc. before it merged with Cargill
Crop Nutrition, will go on a dis-
placed employee roster, subject to
recall for other jobs for which
they are qualified. Under the
union contract, they also have the
right to "bump" c(mploi'yet- with
less seniority at. former IMC facil-
ities.
The layoffs will be completed
by May 23, according to Mosaic
spokesman Diana Youmans.


The mechanics are employed
at six shops which support the
company's operations at Pierce,
Four Corners, Fort Green, and
Noralyn.
The shops will be closed, and
Mosaic will outsource their duties
to other vendors, as Cargill had
done before the merger with IMC,
Ms. Youmans said.
"This was a business decision.
It's about the economic efficien-
cies we're finding as we continue
looking for the synergies as a
result of our merger," she said.
Mosaic has established a goal
of saving $145 million a year by
mid-2007 by implementing
economies in operations through
the merger, she said.
The company has approxi-


mately 3,000 employees at its five
active mines (Four Corners, Fort
Green, Kingsford, South Fort
Meade, and Hookers Prairie) and
its four fertilizer processing
plants (Bartow, Green Bay, New
Wales, and South Pierce), she
said.
Earlier this year, company offi-
cials announced plans to shut
down Kingsford later this year
when phosphate reserves are
exhausted.
Cargill Inc. of Minneapolis
owns two-thirds of Mosaic, the
company created by the IMC-
Cargill Crop Nutrition merger. It
is one of only three phosphate
companies still operating in cen-
tral Florida. Another company
operates in north Florida.

Social Security:


Welfare or Nest Egg?


A couple of observations on the Social
Security system in the light of President
Bush's press conference Thursday night:
a First, one of the philosophical
strengths of Social Security traditionally
has been that it's not "welfare," it's a
return of Social Security taxes paid in over
30 or 40 years, or longer, by both the work-
er and the worker's employer.
The .r.ure you and your employer pay
in, the morc you are entitled to receive in
retirement benefits.
Under President Bush's proposal to
scale back benefits for everyone except
low-income retirees, that would change.
Social Security would become another
welfare program.
The classic definition of socialism is:
"From each according to his ability to pay,
to each according to his need."
That's not inherently evil, but it's a fact
that should be acknowledged up front.'
Second, one of the most unfair aspects
of Social Security is that after years of pay-
ing into the program, workers have no
equity in it. If they die before collecting
their pension, there's nothing left to their
heirs.
If you live to a ripe old age, you draw
out more than you put in; if not, your pay-
ments into the system help pay the bene-
fits toyour more fortunate colleagues.
And that is one of the primary advan-
tages of a partially privatized Social
Security system, one in which workers
could voluntarily elect to have part of their
Social Security taxes placed in an invest-
ment of their choice.
For all the hand-wringing about 'how
risky that is, that is precisely what
Individual Retirement Accounts, 401(k)


pension plans, and other tax-sheltered
retirement programs are all about.
You decide how much risk you are will-
ing to take. You can salt away your retire-
ment nest egg in something as secure as
low-yield government bonds or as specu-
lative as common stocks.
Most financial advisors suggest a mix of
investments. There are almost as many
options as there are people setting aside
money for retirement.
It is only when that concept allowing
the individual to decide how much risk he
is willing to take in exchange for the poten-
tial of higher returns is applied to the
Social Security system that it becomes con-
troversial.


It is a vast understatement to say that
Social Security is a complex issue. But as
we listened to the President's comments,
those two thoughts were driven home:
A needs-based Social Security pay-out
would become a new form of welfare.
A partially privatized Social Security
program would build an equity nest egg
for the surviving spouse and/or children.

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

Take Your 15 Minutes and Run


It was Andy Warhol who
observed that each of us will
achieve 15 minutes of fame.
He didn't say "at least" 15
minutes. And there's a message
there.
How Warhol decided on 15
minutes as our per capital share of
fame, I do not know. And while I
have finally mastered the Internet
well enough to confirm that it
Swas indeed Warhol who made
the comment, I have not mas-
tered it well enough to search the
more than 18,000 hits on the
phrase "15 minutes of fame" to
allow me to dig further.
But a story that broke last
week demonstrates why it's
probably just as well to accept
your allotted 15 minutes, bow
modestly in the spotlight, and
exit stage left.
Early in the week, a couple of
guys up in Lawrence, Mass., cap-
tured headlines when they said
they had found buried treasure in
the form of 1,800 old bank notes
in a yard where they were work-







/ n ^*rt


qT


ing. They proudly displayed an
assortment of gold certificates,
silver certificates, and other
forms of legal tender, with a face
value of about $7,000 but an esti-
mated collector's value of per-
haps $50,000 to $100,000, maybe
more.
The bills, which were exam-
ined and certified to be authentic,
bore dates from 1899 to 1928.
They said they had dug up the
money, stashed in a crate, from a
depth of nine inches, or maybe it
was two feet, while they were
preparing to plant a tree, or
maybe it was while they were
digging up a tree, or perhaps
while they were digging away
roots that were endangering a
house.
Speculation turned at once to
gangsters or bootleggers of yes-
teryear who had buried their loot,
and like latter day pirates, had
lost the treasure map. Arrgh,
Mateys, what a rotten run o' luck.
Stuff like that can happen. I
recall that many years ago, a


worker who was plowing some
ground for a homesite on the Old
Lakeland Road (now called Lyle
Parkway) found several buried
demijohns of wine. Although
some were broken, several more
were disinterred intact.
Good wine, incidentally; I was
permitted a taste of it.
Not altogether apparent to me
was how paper of any sort buried
in a crate could survive a century,
more or less, without succumb-
ing to rain, dry rot, and termites.
It also occurred to me to won-
der what gave the two lucky
hole-diggers the right to claim
ownership of something they
found on somebody else's prop-
erty.
But I figured they do things
differently up in Massachusetts,
and I have enough to fret about
down here below the Mason-
Dixon Line.
Apparently the gendarmes in
that territory shared the same
curiosity, and on Friday, Barry
Billcliff, 27, and Timothy Crebase,


22, were charged with stealing
the money from the house at
which they were working.
They missed yet another TV
appearance Thursday night
because they were busy being
booked into jail as the show aired
without them.
Police had been watching their
many TV appearances,' and
picked up on the way the details
changed from one interview to
the next.
Perhaps they also wondered
how long a buried wooden box
would keep 1,800 pieces of cur-
rency in pristine condition.
Police Chief Joseph E.
Solomon said the guys might
have gotten away with it if they
had quietly taken the money and
sold off a few bills at a time.
"Sometimes wanting to be
famous is really the downfall of
people," said Chief Solomon,
showing Solomonic wisdom.
In other words, take your 15
minutes and run.

The Hog Hunt


OUR READERS SAY

County Should Reimburse Abercrombies


I went hog hunting with the
kids Saturday night.
I will never go again.
It started out fine. We
unloaded the dogs and were
walking along in the dark, the
dogs sniffing the air and getting
more excited by the minute. I too,
was excited; being out there in
the dark, in the middle of
nowhere, with the sounds of the
night creatures all around and the
stars shining so brightly that it
felt like I could reach up and grab
them.
I will be the first to admit that
I am scared of the dark, but there
is safety in numbers, and there
were four of us and three dogs.
We must have walked three miles
or better before Roscoe and Baby,
the "bay" dogs, were released,
and that's when the hell started.
Everything went into hyper-
motion. The dogs took off and the
kids started running. I found to
my dismay that they could run
much faster than I could and I
was literally left in the dust.
I had been informed earlier
that if I needed assistance I
should whistle. I was not plan-
ning on being left in the dark
alone so needless to say, when I
tried to whistle, my mouth had
gone so dry that all that came out
was a frantic "pfffft."
I stood there listening to the
barking dogs growing further
and further away and I suddenly
remembered that I could whistle
though my fingers. I let out a
whistle that could be heard for
miles, and immediately Jill was
by my side.
"Whatsa matter?"
"Whatsa matter? You left me!
You all left me!"


"We didn't leave you ... you
have to keep up!" Pant, pant.
"Come on!"
She grabbed my hand and
started dragging me. We took
turns tripping over, clumps of
weeds and the broken branches
that littered the ground, and
finally the sound of a hog squeal-
ing came to us from some dis-
tance to the north.
Jill turned into something pos-
sessed; she yanked my arm so
hard she liked to pulled it out of
the socket and when she met
with nothing but resistance she
turned me loose and took off
again, basically dropping me like
a bad habit. Fortunately for me,
the hog doubled back, and the
kids ran past me going the other
direction. They were mere shapes
in the darkness as they swarmed
past me.
"If you see a big hog headed at
you," Jill called on- the run, "get
out of the way!" And then we
promptly, and with a good deal
of force, slammed into each other.
"You were saying?" I said, as
we picked ourselves up off the
ground and we both giggled.
The boys 'came wandering
back with the dogs.
"We lost it."
"Oh. Good," I said. "Well I had
a good time, sorry it had to end
so soon."
"Well, we're not done." Jake
said. "We're gonna keep at it."
"Uh uh. Not me." I said. "I'm
going' back to the truck."
"How?" Jill asked.
"The same way I got here," I
replied firmly.
"You're gonna walk four or
five miles in the dark by your-
self?" she asked incredulously.


"I don't particularly relish the
thought, but right now it sounds
like a lot better idea than getting
left out here in the dark. At least
right now I have an idea how to
get back."
The boys, apparently having
seen such scenarios before, put
their heads together for the next
plan of action while Jill stood and
blinked at me in the darkness.
"I can't let you walk back. I
know you; it would be emotional
suicide."
"So what ... you going with
me? Hope, hope.
"Heeeeck no."
"Oh, gee thanks."
"I have a better idea. Come
on."
She grabbed me by the hand
and led me though a little bay
head and out the other side and
before me was the most welcome
sight I had ever seen. A pale
thread of white against the dark
weeds. It was a road.
Then she got on her cell phone,
wheedled a friend of hers away
from a party to come pick us up,
and less than 30 minutes later we
were home.
The next morning I was so sore
I could barely walk; even the bot-
toms of my feet were sore. The
boys caught a 240-pound boar
and I'm sorry I wasn't there to see
the whole thing, but it occurs to
me that there are some things that
are better left to the young, the
energetic, and the slightly silly in
the head, but I do have to admit
that I have a whole new respect
for Jill, who engages in this activ-
ity af least once a week, and Jake,
who would go every night if he
got the chance.


LAKELAND I want to
encourage the people of Polk
County to join me in asking our
county commission to correct an
injustice against a Polk County
family. I am referring to James
and Erin Abercrombie, who have
been wronged by the county gov-
ernment.

Old Marine and City Impact Fee DFA Group

Clerk Are Honored Increase Meeting May 4


One city official was honored
Monday night for a recent ac-
complishment, and another for
service to his country more than
60 years ago.
SCity Commissioner Cal Ad-
ams received a letter from the
commandant of the Marine
Corps, recognizing him for his
service in World War II. America
is preparing to mark the 60th
anniversary of the end of the
war in 1945.
As a Marine, Adams was at
Guadalcanal, generally consid-
ered to be America's first ground
action in World War II.
The letter from the comman-
dant, which came as a surprise
to the two-term city commis-
sioner, was presented to him by


Police Capt. Chuck Spencer, a
Marine combat veteran of the
Vietnam War.
"There is no such thing as a
former Marine," Spencer said.
"Once a Marine, always a Ma-
rine."
Later in the meeting, Mayor
Leo Longworth presented City
Clerk Linda Culpepper a certifi-
cate recognizing her achieving "
.master municipal clerk" stand-
ing in the International Institute
of Municipal Clerks.
Mrs. Culpepper thanked the
cities of Bartow and Eagle Lake
- where she was city clerk be-
fore accepting the same position
in Bartow in 2001 for support-
ing her studies in the institute.


Hearings

Wednesday
Polk County commissioners
will hold public hearings
Wednesday afternoonon ordi-
nances to increase the impact fee
for emergency medical service
and to establish an impact fee for
parks and recreational facilities.
The hearings are scheduled
for 1:30 p.m. at the county
administration building.
The EMS fee for single-family
homes would go from $49 to $97.
The money would be used to
pay for ambirlances and EMS
stations, and represents the cost
for infrastructure that each new
home places on the EMS system.
When the increase was pro-
posed last month, Commissioner
Randy Wilkinson questioned the
imposition of fees on churches
and charter schools. But
Wilkinson said he supports the
concept of increasing the EMS
impact fees, and voted to' sched-
ule the ordinance for a public
hearing.
The parks fee would be a new
impact fee. A consultant told the
commission that a fee of $897
could be justified, but recom-
mended that the county charge
only about half that amount,
$454, because the county histori-
cally has found other sources of.
funds for parks.
On May 18, the commission
will consider an ordinance
increasing the public service tax
from 8 percent to 10 percent.
Wilkinson voted against schedul-
ing that hearing.
About two months ago, The
Democrat quoted Wilkinson as
saying that the sheriff's office
budget had increased by more
than 70 percent since 2000.
Wilkinson said that the correc-
tions portion of the budget,
including the cost to buy the
South County Jail near
Frostproof, had increased by
more than 70 percent.


The monthly meeting of De-
mocracy for America (DFA) will

day, May 4, at the Perkins Res
taurant & Bakery, 150 Van Fleet

The artwork of Yvette
Schwabe-Johnson is now on dis-
play at the Polk County Histori-
cal Museum in the changing ex-
hibit gallery.
Ms. Schwabe-Johnson was
born in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
While growing up there, she
learned to love the beaches and
the tropical flora and 'fauna
found on the island. Having
studied both in Puerto Rico and
the United States she has been
able to blend both cultures int
her artwork.
Ms. Schwabe-Johnson has al-
ways had a love for the arts, mu-
:sic, dance and painting but did
not seriously pursue her love of
art beyond occasional classes un-
til after she raised her four chil-
dren.
After she moved, to Florida
with her husband shB'began pur-
suing art full time. Her style is a
looser, colorful one, of contempo-
rary impressionism, with vibrant
and lively colors reminiscent of
her tropical past. Her subjects
lean towards environmental
landscapes such as ponds, lakes
and beaches, but an occasional
flower or still life certainly make
,their way into her repertoire.
In addition to her framed

work, Ms. Schwabe-Johnson has
completed several murals in the
Polk County area both in private
homes and public place. Last
year she contributed her talent
to the Polk County Historical
Museum's Children's Discovery
Room, completing two murals
depicting a cross section of life in
a local pond and a swamp.
Ms. Schwabe-Johnson belongs
to several local art guilds and
galleries such as the Ridge Art
Association in Winter Haven,

ceola Center for the Arts, and

Fort Meade Dental Office Has New Look


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer
Family Dentistry at 330 East
Broadway Street in Fort Meade,
where Dr. C.R. Fort has had his
office for the last 25 years, has a
completely new look.
"We began with the removal
of several large trees after the
hurricanes came through, then
we realized we needed to paint,
and one thing led to another,"
Dr. Fort said.
Office manager Sharon Ei-
chenberger and business assis-
tant Amy Blocker said they and
other. employees began the reno-
vation. After the hurricanes, the
office was without electricity for
a time, so to earn a paycheck,
the employees grabbed wheel-
barrows, shovels, and gloves,
and began the cleanup work.
"We were finally able tp con-
tract someone for the tree re-
moval," Dr. Fort said.


Payment period dates have
been established for Florida
counties eligible to participate in
the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's Livestock Assistance Pro-
gram (LAP) and the American
Indian Livestock Feed Program
(AILF).
Kevin Kelley, state executive
director of the Farm Service
Agency, encouraged producers in
eligible counties to visit their lo-
cal Farm Service Agency office to
sign up. Sign-up began March
14, and will continue until fur-
ther notice.
"This program provides relief
to livestock producers who had
grazing losses in 2003 and 2004
due to drought, severe weather,
and related causes," Kelley said.
Forty-one counties have been
determined eligible for LAP in
Florida.
Producers of dairy and beef
cattle; bison and beefalo; goats;
swine; sheep; and certain equine,
elk, and reindeer are now eligi-
ble to participate in LAP.
The grazing land must be lo-
cated in a county designated as a
primary disaster county under a
presidential or secretarial disas-
ter declaration. The county must
have been approved as a primary
disaster county on or after Jan.
1, 2003, for a disaster occurring
through Dec. 31, 2004.
To be approved, a county
must also have suffered a 40 per-
cent or greater loss of available
grazing for at least three con-
secutive months as a result of
damage caused by a natural dis-
aster.

Baker Painting took care of
the exterior painting. Kim Kelly
completed the interior painting
and wall papering.
Tim Walker and his sons, 15-
year-old Ethan and 13-year-old
Reuben, took care of outside irri-
gation and landscaping.
"After the large bottle brush
bush was removed, along with
several other large bushes, one
could see two attractive planters
at the east and west sides of the
building," Walker said. "After
preparing the ground, we
planted a hibiscus, which has'
been trained as a patio tree, and
several other shrubs.
"The purple leaf shrub, which
can grow as large as four feet.
tall, is strobilanthus. Lorapeta-
luan are planted in the back.
The yellow variegated hedge
plant is Trinette."
Also newly planted are Mona
lavender, which produce a pur-
ple bloom all summer.


Another eligibility require-
ment is that a producer must
have owned their livestock dur-
ing certain timeframes, called a
payment period. Based on Flor-
ida FSA county committee rec-
ommendations approved by the.
FSA state committee, March 15
through Aug. 31, 2004, is the ap-
proved payment period for
Pasco, Polk, and Hernando coun-
ties.
Authorized by the Military
Construction and Appropriations
and Emergency Hurricane Sup-
plemental Appropriations Act,
2005 (2005 Act), the programs
also provide that producers who
reduced the number of livestock
because of a natural disaster
shall not be penalized for those
reductions.
Producers will -receive com-
pensation for the entire disaster
payment period. Benefits will be
based on the number of livestock
the producer would have owned
if the disaster had not occurred.
SFor livestock that were sold in
the course of routine business,
producers. will receive benefits
for those animals only up to the
date of sale.

other disaster assistance pro-
grams, log on to the USDA's
website at http://disaster.fsa.

service center or FSA county of-
fice.


"We completed our work with
the decorative mulch, which
lends color to the beds," Walker
said.
Dr. Fort said he tried to use
local businesses or individuals
for as much of the work as he
could.
The office staff said they are
looking forward to next week
when the new carpet arrives.
The parking lot is scheduled to
be repaved May 5, and eventu-
ally, when roofers are not so
much in demand, the 25-year-old
building will get a new roof.
"We have had no roof leakage
since the hurricanes, but it's
time for a new roof, in case we
get.another hurricane," Mrs. Ei-
chenberger sals!"( "
'Dr. Fort sai4.tie repairs are
quite a large undertaking for a
solo practitioner; however, he
said, everyone seems to think
the new look is worth it.

Hotline Set Up to Report

Nuisance Alligators


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has launched a new toll-
free telephone number-to report
nuisance alligators.
That number is 1-866-FWC-
GATOR and should be the pri-
mary telephone number for alli-
gator complaints, available to
customers around the clock.
Alligators have shared
marshes, swamps, rivers and
lakes with humans for many
centuries in the southeastern
United States and are found in
all of Florida's 67 counties.
There have been increased inter-
actions between alligators and
humans as more and more peo-
ple are seeking homes on water-
front property.
The FWC annually receives
more than 15,000 alligator-re-
lated complaints. The agency re-
moves more than 5,000 alliga-
tors each year when the reptiles
pose a threat to humans or their
property.
There are many precaution-


ary measures people should take
to reduce the potential for con-
flicts with alligators.
To learn more of the dos and
don't of dealing with alligators,
download the "Living with Alli-
gators," brochure -from
MyFWC.com/alligator.
Many Floridians have an ap-
preciation for these ancient
crocodilians and have learned to
coexist with them. However, if
you do encounter an alligator
that poses a threat to people or
property and is more than four
feet in length, the FWC urges
you to call the new Nuisance Al-
ligator Hotline.
All alligator complaints will
be forwarded to this new dedi-
cated hotline.
Alligators are an important
part of Florida's heritage and
play a valuable role in the ecol-
ogy of the state's wetlands. Visit
MyFWC.com/alligator for more
information on alligator behavior
and about the Alligator Manage-
ment Program.

It Must Have Paper.




































Words on paper. They will always be the most powerful tools human beings use to
communicate. They place no limits on how much we can say, and the furthest reaches
of the imagination are the only limits on what we can show. They have the power to
make complex ideas simple, and simple ideas powerful. We do more than read them, we
hold them. And, from the advertising we see in publications to the letters we receive
in the mail, the things we hold in our hands have the quickest routes to our hearts.

IN THEIR FINAL GAME at Bill Phebus
Field, Bartow High School seniors (from left)
M.J. Wilson, Lezon Dixon and Cameron Ste-
vens had plenty to smile about as the Jackets
cruised past Lake Gibson by a score of 11-3.
The seniors will try to extend their high school


careers even further when the Jackets face
tough competition at the district tournament,
at Kathleen High School. The Jackets' first
test in on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. and the game
will be broadcast on WWBF AM 1130. (Staff

Jacket Seniors Go Out With

Win, Crushing Lake Gibson 11-3


At the final home game for
the three seniors on the Bar-
tow High School baseball team,
the Yellow Jackets had an of-
fernsive awakening as the up-
perclassmen went out in style
on Thursday, defeating Lake
Gibson by a score of 11-3.
Outgoing seniors Cameron
Stevens, Lezon Dixon and M.J.
Wilson were recognized before
the game, along side their par-
ents. The emotional scene
must have woken something
up, because the Jackets finally
gave the usually solid pitching
some much needed run sup-
port.


After scoring a total of
three runs in the past three
games, the Bartow offense
snapped back to life, racking up
11 runs off 10 hits, including
two home runs by Bartow bat-
ters.
Drew Collier got the win on
the mound, finishing the regu-
lar season with a record of 6-2.
Stevens and junior Jack Mur-
phy closed out the contest on
the mound.
Murphy got things rolling
offensively as well. Murphy
had a two run jack in the third
inning. As an encore, Josh
Ward hit a solo home run right


afterwards in a five run third
inning.
Leading hitters include
Murphy, who finished two of
three .with a homer and four
RBIs; Brent Delph, who went
two of four with a stolen base;
Wilson went two of three with
a double and Ward went one of
four, but hit a solo home run.
Now that the regular season
has ended, the Jackets will be-
gin their quest f6r a state title
as they begin the district tour-
nament on Thursday, playing
at 4:30 p.m. at Kathleen.


BHS Alumnus: 'Success on the

Field Starts in the Weightroom'


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

When then Fort Meade
weightlifting and football
coach John Creech made ,the
decision to leave Polk County
and move up to the world of
college football coaching, who
do you think was the first to
know?
It wasn't his mother, or his
wife and it was definitely not
the administration at Fort Me-
ade High School.
It was David Barfield, at the
time a tenth grader at FMHS.
On that day, more than two
years ago, the two friends sat
outside their usual haunt -
the weight room at FMHS -
and shared an emotional mo-
ment together.
"I told him, I need to do this
at this point in my life,"
Creech said, "and he under-
stood."

Creech, who graduated from
BHS in 1989, is now the defen-
sive line and strength and con-
ditioning coach at Pearl River
Community College in Missis-
sippi, which boasts the defend-
ing junior college national
champion football team. In
both of Creech's two years at
Pearl River, the Wildcats have
won the state championship, as
well.
Even more impressive is
that one of the school's top
stars and one of Creech's big-
gest weight room success sto-
ries, receiver- Larry Brackins,
was selected 155th overall in
the 2005 draft by the Tampa
Bay Buccaneers.
Fort Meade's current
weightlifting coach, Chris
Davis, credits Creech for all
the success the program at
Fort Meade is currently hav-
ing, culminating in the individ-
ual state title Barfield cap-
tured on Saturday.
Creech worked with Barfield
in his formative years as an
eighth grader and freshman at
the small school.


"I knew he was a state
champion (back then); it was
just a matter of time."
Creech was involved with
the.football and weightlifting
programs back before Fort Me-
ade was known for either.
"I kind, of took the task (of
setting up the program) as a
challenge," he said.
During his tenure, Creech
and other coaches set up the
weightlifting program at the
school.
Current Fort Meade football
Head Coach Mike Hayde has
praised the weightlifting pro-
gram for the team's success, cit-
ing other successful football
programs around the state,
which no surprise also
have successful weightlifting
programs.
While at Bartow, Creech led
the school to one of its best
showings in 1996, including, an
individual state title. That
very year, the Yellow Jackets
won the 4A football state title
Creech said his secret to
success at the high school and
collegiate levels has been sim-
ply identifying with kids and
getting them to trust you.
"If you are there longer
than them, they'll know you
are for real," Creech said. He
added that during his time at
Fort Meade he never took a
vacation, only two weeks for
Christmas.
"I made sure that every day
the weight room was open and
available from three to eight,
and my truck was down there
until 10 or 11 at night."
In his current position,
Creech said he just "gets on
the same level" as a player,
and after that it's easy.
"Motivation is the big
thing. These are still young
kids, but it's still football,
which is all about fundamen-
tals. But when it comes down
to it, if a kid respects you," he
said, "they will run through a
brick wall for you."
Unfortunately for Creech,
there is no chance for competi-


tive weightlifting in, colleges,
except within the team, and
time in the weight rooms is se-
verely cut back.
"One of the biggest differ-
ences is genetically and body-
wise, these guys come in here
ready to go. You just feed them
the weights and watch them
grow."
Meanwhile, back in Fort
Meade, Coach Davis is busy
switching gears from the
weightlifting season workout
regimens to the football prepa-
ration program, which focuses
more on endurance than
strength.
"Coach Creech started a
great tradition here and I am
trying to keep it going in that
direction," Davis said.
"We have:, all worked ex-
tremely hard for all of this and
I think John Creech deserves a
lot of the credit."
So now, after four consecu-
tive years of sending out a
weightlifting state champion
from Fort Meade (two of them
under Creech), Coach Davis
has just one question:
"Who's gonna be the fifth?"

Bartow 'Bug Beaters' Become "Bug

Bombed' in District Softball Final This Week


By MARK KING
With high expectations of
becoming two time Bug Beat-
ers this season, the Auburn-
dale Lady Bloodhounds came
into The Hive at One Bug
Place on the campus of Bartow
High School on Friday night
for the 4A District 12 softball*
championship game against the
Lady Yellow Jackets.
But the would-be Bug Beat-
ers instead were "Bug Bombed"
as the Lady Jackets cruised to
a 9-0, near-perfect pounding of
the Pups. The Jackets used
their patented aggressive base-
running style, coupled with a
line-up of highly focused bat-
ters, to avenge an earlier loss
to this same pack of Hounds.
Add to that offensive pack-
age a stellar defensive perform-
ance by three-time player of
the year Lindsay Littlejohn in
the pitcher's circle and you
could almost see the word
"Doomed" tattooed on the
brows of the Hound players.
Littlejohn fanned nine batters,
allowed one late inning hit,
and walked none as she over-
powered the Pups at the plate.
Sporting the highest bat-
ting average in the county
(.569), Auburndale's Janine
Richardson was completely
shut out, going 0 for 3. Little-
john fanned the always dan-
gerous Richardson twice and
relied on the bazooka arm of"
Itty-Bitty" Britta Giddens at
short stop for another out.
It was in the top of the
fourth inning when Richard-
son actually was able to catch
up to a Littlejohn pitch. She
banged the ball on a slow hop-
per to Gidcdens at shortstop.
The diminutive dynamo
scooped up the ball and fired a
rope to Rachael Jackson at
first to nail the speedy Rich-
ardson by half a step.
On the offensive side of the
ball, the Bugs took advantage
of a Bloodhound boo-boo to
take the early lead.
It happened in the first in-
ning, when Staci Fernandez


drew a walk. Elizabeth Howell
popped up to the third base-
man for the Hounds, who
dropped the ball. Fernandez
wound up on third base as
Howell baited the Bow-Wows
into trying to throw her out at
second base.
Auburndale took the bait
and threw to second at which
time Fernandez broke for home
plate and scored.
Bartow added another run
in the bottom of the second,
when "The Big One," Kara Ru-
tenbar, led off with a crusher
in the left-center gap. A per-
fect sacrifice bunt by Mallory
Butler allowed Rutenbar to
scurry over to third base.
Following another BHS out,
Jerrica Sanchez belted a single
to score Rutey from third.
In the bottom of the fourth
inning, the Bug batters
swarmed all over the belea-
guered Barkers. Littlejohn led
off the offensive onslaught
with a base hit. Brianna Lev-
erette came in to run for Lit-
tlejohn at first base and
promptly stole second.
After recording two outs,
BHS sent Rachael Jackson to
the plate where she ripped a
single to score Leverette. The
pump was primed, and the well
of hits from Bartow batters
seemed never-ending as' the
next six Bugs blasted the ball,
, including a mammoth triple by
Elizabeth Howell and a Gid-
dens double.
The Buzzers added another
run in the bottom of the fifth
when Rutenbar racked her sec-
ond double of the evening.
Butler then cranked out a sin-
gle to score Rutey for the final
nail in the Curs' coffin.
Coach Glenn Rutenbar
could not have been happier
with the effort put forth by his
team.
"They played great," he said
wearing a big grin. "When
we're batting like that from
one through nine, plus our
subs We're going to be
hard to beat.
"Hopefully, we can take

SSC After Weekend Split


After being shut out for the
first time this season in the
first game of Sunday's Sun-
shine State Conference dou-
bleheader at Saint Leo, the
fourth-ranked Moccasins took
the second game 9-1 to gain a
split in the twin-bill, improving
to 39-9.
By taking two of three from
the Lions in the series, the
Moccasins moved into a share
of first place in the SSC. FSC,
Rollins and Tampa all have 13-
8 conference records and Nova
Southeastern is 11-7.
Saint Leo's Ronnie Lowe
blanked the Moccasins 2-0 with
a complete game one-hitter in
the first game Sunday. Lowe,
who evened his record at 4-4,
allowed only a fourth-inning
single by Matt Joyce and re-
tired the last 15 Moccasin bat-
ters in order. The Moccasins
had only two other base-run-
ners in the game. Geoff Strick-
land walked in the first inning
and Jeff Howell walked in the
fifth.
The game was scoreless un-
til Rhett Teller led off the bot-
tom of the seventh with a solo
home run off Joe Walczak (3-2).
Anton Standifer led off the
eighth with a solo homer off
John Milton for the Lions'
other run.
The Moccasins needed only
four batters to produce three
runs and four hits in the sec-
ond game, as they jumped on
Saint Leo starter Jesse Wilson
for three first-inning runs.
Nick Diyorio led off with a sin-
gle, Geoff Strickland followed
with a double, then Matt
Joyce and Fred Popp singled.
Dan Albritton pitched six in-
