SJudge's Order Clears Charter


i a Amendments To Go To Voters


TWO TRACTOR TRAIL-
ERS WRECKED in separate
accidents Tuesday morning. In
the first (at left), driver Zane P.
Watts, 47, of Epworth, Ga., was
headed north on Highway 17 and
tried to turn west onto Van Fleet
Drive, about 9:20 a.m. Witnesses
told Bartow Police Officer Robert
Bigford that the truck had accel-
-rated to beat the caution light
before turning. Damage to the
semi, which was hauling orange
juice, was estimated at $15,000,
plus $200 damage to two plastic
barricades. Watts, who was not
injured, was charged with care-
less driving and failure to pro-
vide registration. The other semi
that overturned (above) was car-
rying construction debris. That
crash occurred just before noon
at CR 555 and Highway 60. A
report was not available from
Florida Highway Patrol. -

Strong Advanced Placement

Program Nets BHS/IB A Top


Ranking from Newsweek


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

SAdministrators at Bartow
High School have been quick to
jtmp on the Advanced Placement
bandwagon, and the results are
showing, this time on a national
scale.
SIn the May 16 issue of
Newsweek magazine, Bartow
H:i g h / In t e r n a t i ona
Baccalaureate is listed as number
253 in the magazine's rankings of
the best 1,000 high schools in the
U.S.
SPublic schools were ranked
according to a ratio, devised by
the magazine, that examines the
number of advanced placement
(AP) or International
Baccalaureate tests taken by all
students at a school, divided by
the number of graduating
seniors.
While Florida was well repre-
sented, having five schools in the
top 10, Bartow was the only
school in Polk County to make the
list.
i Bartow received an index num-
ber of 2.097, meaning students at
the school took about two AP
classes for each of the 242 gradu-
ating seniors. Only juniors and
seniors are eligible for AP enroll-


ment.
In 2003, the school was recog-
nized in the magazine to be
among the top four percent of
high schools in the nation that
offer college-level coursework.
"We are very proud of this
honor," said IB principal Dr. Ed
Vetter. "We look forward to even
more students taking advantage
ofAP testing in the future."
According to Dr. Vetter, IB stu-
dents took 451 AP tests while
BHS students took 77 tests this
year, and he expects those num-
bers to rise as soon as next year.
BHS assistant principal for
curriculum, Emilean Clemons,
said the number ofAP sections at
the schools has doubled from
seven to 14 and efforts are under-
way to continue to increase that.
The objective can be seen in
the terminology. What was once
known as an "honors plus" class
is now referred to as a "pre-AP"
course.
Teachers are working with the
student body at BHS to explore
what AP courses students would
like to take, and how to prepare
underclassmen for those kind of
classes.
Another course of action Mrs.
Clemons and other high school
administrators have been work-


ing on is to increase communica-
tion between high school and
middle school teachers.
"So far, they've been real coop-
erative," she said.
In recent years, Mrs. Clemons
said, high schools have been more
proactive in seeking out likely
honors candidates from the mid-
dle school ranks and grooming
them for future AP coursework.
A local example of this is the
"Freshman Footsteps" program, a
series of orientation seminars
BHS holds for eighth graders and
their parents. The purpose of this
is not just to calm any fears the
incoming freshman might have,
but also to identify students who
would be good candidates for hon-
ors classes and eventually AP
courses as well.
As a former sixth grade
teacher, Mrs. Clemons said she
uses the same routine as in her
middle school days easing the
transition from one level of edu-
cation to the next.
"By working with middle
schools as well as providing more
advanced placement courses,"
Mrs. Clemons said, "it really
increases our students' chances to
be successful later in life."

A second ruling by Circuit
Judge John F. Laurent appears to
have cleared the way for the coun-
ty commission to ask Polk
County's voters if they want to
make constitutional officers elect-
ed department heads, and to limit
them to two consecutive terms in
office.
That is the advice County Atty.
Joseph G. Jarret said today he
will give commissioners next
week.
Under the county charter, com-
missioners also have the option of
voting to implement the two pro-
posals on their own initiative, but
the chance that they would do so
is remote.
Jarret said he will make no
recommendation about when the
election should be held.
Under the charter, the commis-
sion can either call a special elec-


tion or submit the issue to the
voters at the next general elec-
tion, which will be in November of
2006, he said.
A citizens activist group led by
Dewey Smith circulated petitions
calling for a referendum to amend
the county charter to:
(1) Make the five constitution-
al officers sheriff, courts clerk,
property appraiser, tax collector,
and supervisor of elections -
elected department heads,
answerable to the county manag-
er.
(2) Limit them to two consecu-
tive terms in office.
(3) Cut their salaries in half.
When Elections Supv. Lori
Edwards' staff determined that
there were not enough valid sig-
natures submitted within the
one-year time limit to put the
issues on the ballot, she gave


Smith an additional 30 days to
gather more signatures, as
allowed in the charter.
Polk Citizens for Effective
Government, another activist
group, filed suit, alleging that the
additional 30 days had to come
within the original one-year win-
dow. Several weeks ago, Judge
Laurent ruled that the charter
was unclear on that issue, and
that Ms. Edwards acted properly
when she decided to accept all the
petitions.
Ms. Edwards then reported
two sets of numbers to the county
commission, one set showing that
none of the three initiatives
received enough signatures with-
in the original year, the other
showing that the first two propos-
als (but not the pay cut proposal)
had enough valid signatures at
the end of the additional 30 days.


She took the position that it was
not her duty to interpret the char-
ter.
Jarret advised the commission
that it was Ms. Edwards' duty -
not the commission's to declare
which numbers were valid.
The judge ruled not only that it
was Ms. Edwards' duty, but that
she had already performed it.
In his order, signed on
Tuesday, Judge Laurent said:
'To the chagrin of the supervi-
sor of elections, she did interpret
the charter" by granting the 30-
day extension in addition to the
original one year.
That decision had the effect of
making those signatures valid,
clearing the way for the referen-
dum.


Sago Palms Residents Cite 2002


Promise; Developer Backs Off


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

In December of 2002, Bartow
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
said that while he recommended
R-1 zoning on Taylor Road near
the Sago Palms subdivision, he
would insist on "incremental
development" larger lot sizes
- on any additional development
near Sago Palms.
Monday night, residents of the
upscale Sago Palms development
cited records of that meeting
when they challenged Wiegers'
recommendation to approve yet
another R-1 development even
closer to their homes.
The developer, Bill Conrad,
who said he was unaware of that
commitment, asked the zoning
board to delay action on his appli-
cation until he could discuss his
development plans with Sago
Palms residents.
In a blunt but civil exchange,
Sago Palms residents challenged
Wiegers' recommendation fo
approve Conrad's application, and
he replied that "R-1 zoning is con-
sistent with Taylor Brook," the
subdivision approved in 2002 on
his recommendation.
.In 2002, the zoning board tried
unsuccessfully to require that
Taylor Brook subdivision be
upgraded to R-1-3A zoning, which
requires 110-foot wide lots. R-1
zoning, the least restrictive single
family zoning in Bartow's land
development regulations,
requires only 70-foot lots.


Conrad, the developer who
built the Ashley Glen apartment
complex on North Wilson Avenue
in Bartow and who is seeking to
build a small subdivision on
Taylor Road, told the zoning
board:
"We try to create compatibility,
to protect land values."
He said he wanted to listen to
concerns of Sago Palms residents,
and after hearing their com-
ments, asked for a continuation of
his development request.
After the meeting, he told The
Democrat he was unaware of the
representation made in 2002 that
the city would insist on larger lots
between Taylor Brook subdivision
and the larger lots in Sago Palms.
Conrad, along with Dewey
Bullock, owner of the land,
applied for annexation of 8.3
acres of land between Taylor
Brook and Sago Palms, with a
development designation of "low
density residential" and zoning of
R-l, which is, in fact, the highest
density development allowed in
single-family subdivisions.
Conrad suggested that the last
remaining parcel of undeveloped
land between his parcel and Sago
Palms should have "transitional
zoning."
"That's what we were promised
last time," said Diane Goss, a
Sago Palms resident.
Zoning Board Member Bo
Raulerson agreed.
"When we approved Taylor
Brook in 2002, we promised resi-
dents transitional zoning," he
said.


"I remember that discussion,"
Wiegers acknowledged.
He said his view has been
"altered" by development of 70-
foot lots in the area, both in
Taylor Brook and in a nearby sub-
division just outside the city lim-
its.
"I don't think three years
changes our promise to these peo-
ple," Raulerson said.
Wiegers said the board cannot
promise future zoning decisions.
"Taylor Brook is already
there," said Bullock, owner of the
property under consideration.
Ms. Goss, reading from
accounts of a December 2002 city
commission meeting, said that
the zoning board had recommend-
ed R-1-3A zoning, which would
have required lots similar in size
to those in Sago Palms. That
account related Wiegers' assur-
ance that future subdivisions
would be compatible with the
larger lots in Sago Palms.
Charles Clendinen, another
resident of Sago Palms, presented
34 letters opposing R-1 zoning in
the new development. He also
read from minutes in which
Wiegers recommended "incre-
mental zoning" in future develop-
ment in the area.
At that point, Raulerson asked
that Wiegers who had left the
meeting return to hear the con-
cerns of area residents. He did,
and Clendinen repeated his oppo-
sition to R-1 zoning.
Sam Thomas, who has made
the same appeal for larger lots in
subdivisions on E.F. Griffin Road,


where he lives, told the board:
'This is a prime example of
what we're talking about on E.F.
Griffin Road."
He said transitional zoning is
needed to establish larger home-
sites between one-acre homes and
70-foot lots.
"I'm hearing mixed signals
from the city," he said.
Joan Wright, a retired school
teacher who lives in Sago Palms,
told the board:
"Our home is our investment.
We're proud of our home."
Of the zoning board, she said:
'You're finally starting to listen. I
want you to keep your promise to
us."
After hearing concerns of
neighbors, Conrad told the board
he wanted to continue the public
hearing on his development plans
to give him an opportunity "to
work with the neighbors."
"We don't want a confronta-
tion," he added.
Raulerson suggested that
Conrad could develop 70-foot lots
on one side of the subdivision, the
side next to Taylor Brook, and
could develop 100-foot lots on the
side nearer Sago Palms.
Raulerson then moved to con-
tinue the public hearing on the
annexation, land development
change, and R-1 zoning. His
motion passed 3-to-0, with Board
Member Susan Brewer declaring
a conflict of interest and declining
to vote.
The board's next scheduled
meeting is on July 11.


FCAT Results: More Polk Third

Graders Reading At Grade Level


FCAT scores for third and 12th
grade students in Florida have
been released and more third
graders in Polk and Florida are
reading at grade level than previ-
ously,
While Polk remains in lower
pirt of the state (53rd out of 68
graded districts), for the fourth
consecutive year, the percentage
of students in the county reading
(64 percent) and doing math (63
percent) at their grade level has
increased
The state-wide results show
more than two thirds of all
Florida third grade students are


reading at or above grade level -
the largest number in the state's
history.
Since ending social promotion
two years ago, 62 percent of
retained third graders scored at
Level 2 or above, up from 59 per-
cent in 2004.
Overall, the percentage of
third graders reading at or above
grade level rose to 67 percent this
year, up from 66 percent last year
and 57 percent when third
graders began taking the FCAT
in 2001.
Meanwhile, the percentage of
third graders scoring below basic


(Level 1) in reading dropped to 20
percent from 22 percent in 2004
and 29 percent in 2001.
Other FCAT results include:
Florida students continue to
close the achievement gap.
African American third grade
reading scores have improved
from 36 percent reading at or
above grade level in 2001 to 52
percent in 2005. Hispanic stu-
dents made similar gains with 46
percent reading at or above grade
level in 2001 to 61 percent in

Delinquent Tax Certificate Listings

Available Online At Tax Website


*Beginning'"May .16, bidders
'.ill be able to go online and view
delinquent tax certificates for
the first time.
Polk County Tax Collector's
Office will offer the 2005 Tax
Certificate Sale (for 2004 delin-
quentp.property taxes) on the
Ifiternet for the first time this
year.
Beginning this week and con-
.tnuing-forthe next two weeks, a
listing of all real properties with
delinquent taxes will be pub-
lished around the county.
This initiates the bidding
Process, which will formally open
on May 16 and close with the
awarding of bids beginning May
31.
The list, which in years past
has totaled as much as $14 mil-
lion in delinquent taxes, repre-
sents more than 23,000 parcels
this year alone.
The intent is to streamline a
process that typically has lasted
as long as eight to 10 long days
and involved a relatively small
group of investors.
This year, however, the field
of participants will be limited
only by those who want to sign
up online and file a deposit with
the tax office in order to place
bids.
"With an online auction, we
expect to see lower interest rates
for, delinquent property o-ners,
a larger pool of new investors,
higher percentage of certificates
sold, and fewer resources tied up
by our offices.' Polk Tax Collec-
tor Joe Tedder said. "This online
sale in turn benefits all the Polk,
County taxing authorities and
ultimately the taxpayers them-
selves."
Real estate taxes (ad valorem
taxes) are due Nov. 1 each year.


Taxpayers may opt to pay
early if they chose. At the bot-
tom of the annual property tax
bill are monthly amounts which
provide a discount for whatever
month the payment is made.
Property taxes that are not
paid before April 1 are delin-
quent.
Delinquent property taxes
that are not paid by May 1 are
placed on a list of properties in
which tax certificates which will
be auctioned:
On May 16, the advertised list
will be posted on the web and-
bids may be entered.
A tax certificate represents a
lien on real property and earns
interest at a maximum rate of 18
percent per year. The cost to
purchase a certificate includes
the gross tax, interest, advertis-
ing cost and the cost of the tax
certificate sale.
The bidding begins at 18 per-
cent and the certificate is sold to
the person bidding the lowest
annual interest rate.
In order to clear the property
of the tax lien, the property
owner must pay the amount of
the tax certificate plus interest
calculated from the month after
the certificate sale to the month
of payment or no less than five
percent.
Tax certificates listings will
be published three times this
month: May 16, 19 and May 26.
Copies also are available at
the Polk County Tax Collector's
main offices on 430 E. Main
Street in Bartow, as well as the
Lakeland and Haines City
branch offices.
The locations, as well as addi-
tional information about the tax
certificate auction may be found


on the tax collector's website,
www.PolkTaxes.com. '... .
Polk Government Television
(PGTV) also has produced a pro-
gram that is airing during the
month of May, which gives an
overview of the sale. Showtimes
may be found on'the website.

It's Time To Keep


The Sago Palms Promise


Nearly three years ago, residents in the
upscale Sago Palms Subdivision off Taylor
Road on the north side of Bartow urged
the Bartow zoning board not to approve a
subdivision within view of their homes
that would be built to the city's lowest sin-
gle family residential standard, R-1.
R-1 lots, and the homes built on them,
are the smallest in the code for single-fam-
ily zones.
There are numerous fine homes on such
lots in Bartow, and there are far more
homes in R-1 zones than in all the other
zones put together.
But the lot sizes and home sizes in Sago
Palms are larger, and residents were well
justified in asking that the city protect their
property values and neighborhood
ambiance by insuring that nearby homes
were built to a similar standard. In
Bartow's zoning code, that standard is R-1-
3A, which requires homesites about one-
and-a-half times the width of R-1 lots.
The zoning board recommended R-1-3A
zoning to the city commission, which in a
divided vote, opted instead for R-1 zoning
in the new Taylor Brook Subdivision, as
was requested by the developer and rec-
ommended by the city planning director.
At that time, Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers made it unmistakably clear that in
the next Taylor Road development, he
would expect developers to create an area
of "incremental development" meaning
larger lots as development moved near-
er to Sago Palms.
At a December 2002 city commission
meeting, Commissioner Pat Huff asked
what guarantee Sago Palms residents
would have that the city would follow up
on that commitment.
"You're going to have to have faith in
me," Wiegers replied.
This week, another developer submitted
an application for another development of
R-1 housing between Taylor Brook and
Sago Palms.
Reminded of his 2002 commitment to
larger lots, Wiegers said his view had been
"altered" by construction of other high
density housing in the area, including the
Taylor Brook development that was
approved by the city in 2002.
"When we approved Taylor Brook in
2002, we promised residents transitional
zoning," Board Member Bo Raulerson
said. "I don't think three years changes
our promises to these people."
He is correct.
Wiegers' response was that the city can-
not make a binding promise about future
zoning actions.
He also is correct.
All the people can do is "to have faith
in" the representations made by public
officials.


eI


The prospective developer for this sub-
division is Bill Conrad, who has estab-
lished a good reputation in Bartow. He
built and owns the Ashley Glen
Apartments complex, arguably the highest
quality apartments in the city.
At the beginning of Monday's hearing
on his application for the development off
Taylor Road, Conrad said he wanted to
hear what neighbors had to say. When it
was clear that most of them are concerned
about the development of yet another high
density subdivision near Sago Palms, he
asked that action on his application be
postponed.
After the meeting, Conrad said he was
unaware of the representation made to
neighbors in 2002 that the next develop-
ment in the area would be of lower densi-
ty.
Like every other business person
(including the owner' of this newspaper),
Conrad is in business to make a profit. But
when he says he will listen tothe concerns
of neighbors, we believe him.
We believe that if an acceptable compro-
mise can be found, Bill Conrad will find it.

In 2002, one of the arguments made in
support of R-1 zoning was that Sago Palms
is not within the city limits, and the city of
Bartow has no obligation to consider the
concerns of its residents.
At Monday's hearing, Raulerson said
the same issue has been raised regarding
concerns of E.F. Griffin Road residents
over the proliferation of R-1 zoning next to
their one-acre homesites.
Calling that notion "asinine," Raulerson

pointed out that most of the builders seek-
ing R-1 zoning don't live in Bartow. He
could have added that most of the owners
of land being annexed don't live within the
city limits, either.
To suggest that people like Tim Murphy,
John Frost, John Laurent, and a host of
other community leaders who live just out-
side the 'city limits aren't really Bartowans
and deserve no consideration from city
government is .. .well ... Raulerson put it
well.

the altimeter was just


above zero. I couldn't quite
reach out and touch the water.
Not quite. I had drawn a "bold"
pilot for that trip.
I enjoyed the flight, and I had
no complaint, but I did make
discreet inquiry about the safety
record of our host unit.
I was told that it was not
good.
I was not surprised.

All of these memories came
back as I read a story about the
Pentagon's concerns that
"bold" pilots are crashing in
Iraq and Afghanistan, not due
to enemy fire but to their own
showboating.
One Black Hawk pilot "on an
otherwise dull mission" put his
craft into such a deep dive that
the passengers experienced
weightlessness, and a wheel
chock came off the floor and
jammed the controls.
The crew chief was killed in
the resulting crash; all the other
passengers were injured.
"I'm not a bad person," said
the pilot, a Chief Warrant


Officer 3, at his court-martial.
He was only trying to impress
his passengers. He pled guilty
and was sentenced to 120 days
confinement.
The officer who presided at
the court-martial observed:
"You need a person who's bold
and daring and courageous. A
very small minority would be in
favor of scrupulous adherence
to the voluminous rules about
flying."
On a peace-time flying mis-
sion, I always wanted an "old"
pilot.
In combat, particularly for
the infantryman on the ground
who needs fire support from a
gunship, or the wounded sol-
dier awaiting extraction from a
hot zone, it's the "bold" pilot
who carries the day.
Those are the guys who win
the medals, and deserve them.
The key is knowing when to
be "old," and when to be
"bold."

CREW MEMBERS lay sod at the bandstand. provided)
The area is currently being landscaped. (Photo


By LETA WRIGHT

We have never received so
many good comments on any ac-
tivity as we have received about
the Maypole festivities.
Everyone enjoyed the singing
of the kindergarten class and the
Spanish song from the children.
Of course, the actual dance also
charmed everyone, and we are
already looking forward to next
year's May Day.,
The serving of the punch and
cookies was a delight to see. The
27 volunteers were really organ-
ized and did a wonderful job
serving the more than 800 chil-
dren and guests.
They really worked hard, and
seemed to have a good time do-
ing it. They are the success of all
the museum's activities.
In the Fort Meade Museum
News column on April 18, I men-
tioned the discovery of an old
horseshoe that was found by the
crew laying irrigation pipe at the
bandstand.
Now, here is a follow-up.
Thelma Fort Lyle, a native of
Fort Meade who has lived'in
Bartow for years and now lives
in Commerce, Ga., read the col-
umn and called her sister,
Aldine Fort Warren.
Mrs. Warren lives in Fort
Meade, and Mrs. Lyle told her
that the grounds of the band-


stand used to hold a livery sta-
ble.
Mrs. Lyle said the stable was
run by a Mr. Malloy in the early
1900s.
So, that information just
about solves the mystery of how
that horseshoe happened to be in
that location. Mr. Malloy proba-
bly made the horseshoe, as he
was 'a blacksmith. I'm .always
amazed at the answers to my
questions that come back to me.
Thanks to Thelma Fort Lyle
for the history.
Last Saturday, Tim Walker,
our landscape artist for the
bandstand, set out six drake elm
trees. They are just beautiful.
Around the base of the band-
stand, he set boxwood, which
gives pretty green warmth to the
bandstand. We will have a beau-
tiful setting for a number of ac-
tivities soon. And all the, rain
has been great for our newly set
sod. Come by and have a look.
We are so happy to have that
big beautiful moving sign back
in .operation at Stedem Fort.
Mike Stedem keeps us up to date
with Fort Meade news events.

The sign was really missed af-

time for our little town.

DONATE TO THE DEWEY E. SMITH LEGAL FUND!
You have an opportunity to strike a blow for freedom by
donating to the Dewey E. Smith Legal Fund. Mr. Smith
has been the victim of vicious politics in the abuse of our
Grand Jury system. Almost no one anymore speaks up
for the interests of taxpayers and the "small people" who
keep this great nation going.
Mr. Dewey E. Smith, along with others, has worked to get
salary reductions of many top-paid county officials and term
limits, etc. For this, he was singled out as no other. There
was nothing in this for Mr. Smith but better government.
Don't let this man be persecuted by letting them lead the
Grand Jury system by the nose. One famous lawyer once
said that he could get a Grand Jury to indict a "ham sand-
wich." Don't let Dewey E. Smith be that "ham sandwich"
because he wanted to do something about our runaway
government costs.
To give to the Dewey E. Smith Legal Fund, cash or checks,
go to any SunTrust Bank Officeand tell them you want to
donate to the Dewey E. Smith Legal Fund, account num-
ber 1000031054819, or mail to SunTrust Bank, 4828 South
Florida Avenue, Lakeland, FL 33813-7997, with the ac-
count number above.

FCAT Results


(Continued from Page 1A)

2005.
Florida students made simi-
lar improvements in mathemat-
ics with 68 percent of third
graders calculating math at or
above grade level, compared to 52
percent in 2001.
In 2002, nine percent of the
graduating class did not pass the
eighth grade level high school
competency test (HSCT) whereas
only seven percent of this year's
seniors will not graduate solely
because they have not yet met
the 10th FCAT graduation
requirement. This has improved
from 10 percent in 2004.
The FCAT is not the sole
determiner of a child's promotion
to fourth grade. Parents of third.

(Continued from Page 10A)


'Not Much Actual Wrestling'
Currently, wrestling enter-
tainment is a billion dollar in-
dustry in America and across the
world. The roots of what wres-
tling is today is what drew Rain
to answer an ad in the paper to
learn to wrestle 24 years ago,
but the state of affairs today is
much, much different.
"It's all too commercial," he
said, but added that he didn't
blame WWE owner Vince McMa-
hon for wanting to make money.
"It's just a soap opera. There's
too much talking, women and
sex. There's not much actual
wrestling," said Rain. "Also,
there's too much violence."
Rain said his goal is to "give
the people their money's worth
and keep the prices low." While
attendance numbers rarely flirt
with triple digits, Rain said he
has maintained his ideal.
"You get a loyal following,
even for just one of the wrestlers,
and people will come back."
SIn Florida, Rain said he would
like to see a little more organiza-
tion among the leagues, if not
just some form of regulation.
"It should be regulated by
some sort of commissioner, like
boxing. There should be drug
tests, a doctor on duty, a health
test for wrestlers and more con-
trol."
In the meantime, Rain will
Continue doing what he loves -
lacing up his boots, putting on
his tights and entering into bat-
tle in the squared circle.
The FWE will take a break for
the summer, but will be back in
action regularly on August 5 at
the Sesame Grotto Community
Center near the Morgan Com-
pany Fish Hatchery. The FWE
will perform there on the first
Friday of every month after that.

National Alcohol and Other
Drug Related Birth Defects Week
began on Mother's Day and will
continue through May 14..
The Polk County Health
Department along with other
organizations throughout the
nation are educating the public
about the dangers. of substance
abuse during pregnancy.
This week is observed to pro-
mote a healthy drug-free lifestyle
fpr all pregnant women to protect
against birth defects and other
harmful effects of substance
abuse on an unborn child.
"Women of childbearing years
who may become pregnant should
engage in healthy lifestyle behav-
iors including no alcohol or
drugs," said Dr. Daniel Haight,
director of the Polk County
Health Department. "The first 12
weeks of pregnancy are especially
important in the prevention of
birth defects. No amount of alco-
hol is safe during pregnancy and
the use of drugs and alcohol could
result in permanent damage to
the fetus weeks before the expec-
tant mother is even aware she is
pregnant."
Drinking alcohol during preg-
nancy increases the mother's
chance of having a miscarriage, a
low birth weight baby weighing
less than 5-1/2 pounds, or even a
stillbirth.
In addition, an alcohol-exposed
baby could be born with Fetal
Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), one of
the leading known preventable
causes of mental retardation and
birth defects.
FAS is characterized by abnor-
mal facial features, growth defi-
ciencies, and central nervous sys-
tem problems. Children with FAS
have lifelong problems with
learning, memory, attention span,
communication, vision, and/or
hearing.
Tobacco is another harmful
substance often not recognized as
a drug. Effects of tobacco use dur-
ing pregnancy include low birth
weight, premature birth, miscar-
riages, and increased risk of
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
(SIDS).,

Babies born to mothers who
use marijuana during pregnancy
are more likely to have problems
in school with decision-making,
memory, problem-solving, and the
ability to remain attentive.
Cocaine use during pregnancy
increases the risk of miscarriage,
premature labor. and excessive
bleeding that can result in death
of the mother and baby. Babies
exposed to methamphetamines
before birth often have sleep dis-
orders and fuss or cry more often
than normal.
They have short attention
spans and experience problems
with motor development and
growth.
Opioids and hallucinogens can
result in premature birth, low
birth weight, developmental
delays and other birth defects.


All people, but especially
women of child-bearing age, are
encouraged to practice healthy
behaviors. Avoid smoking and
other substance abuse, maintain
a healthy' weight, exercise, and
eat a nutritious diet.
Spacing pregnancies at least
two years apart also is healthier
for mom and baby.

mation are available at

Wrestling

Only As

Far As Your

Back Yard

By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

"Who's the champion now,
ladies?" bellows the enormous
masked form, as foaming glob-
ules of spittle and sweat shoot
from his bulbous lips.
The throng of 50 spectators
squeals in excited approval and
hoists their foaming cans of Bud
Lite to the heavens, as the split-
ting crash of cast iron on brass
signals the match is officially
over.
Above his head, the glistening
gladiator hoists a shining belt
before sauntering off with his
prize.
Meanwhile, one man lays
motionless in mock agony on the
visibly soaked and blood splat-
tered canvas.
He lies in apparent defeat, but
listening to the howls of approval
from the crowd, he has to consid-
er tonight a victory.
For this man is not just anoth-
er "worker" (as wrestlers call,
each other), he is Florida
Wrestling Entertainment owner
and promoter Chris Rain.
The 54-year old athlete, his
body hardened and even mangled
from years of abuse in the
squared circle, grimaces and
smiles all at once as he rises to
his feet and the crowd follows
suit.
"I want to thank y'all for
coming' out here tonight," said the
loser turned hero as the crowd
begins to hoist up their tailgates
and hop on their four wheelers,
their need for a live wrestling fix
fully satiated.

Backyard Wrestling?
The term "backyard wrestling"
may bring to mind direct market-
ed DVDs full of bloody rzor wire
and scantily clad women, but
Rain 'said the FWE is nothing
like that.
"We may be in a back yard, but
this is totally professional," he
said referring to issues such as
insurance and a license to sell
tickets and food.
Rain estimates there are 85 to
90 independent wrestling organi-
zations in Florida, but "only a
handful of them are legal."
A similarly small number of
them are profitable.
Rain, whose profession is
wrestling, promotes and partici-
pates in his league, the FWE, but
also runs 4 wrestling school and
rents out his wrestling ring two
or three times a month.
The pay is low and the poten-
tial for injury is almost 100 per-
cent.
"I've got pins in my shoulder, a
ruptured disk in my back, but
accidents do happen," Rain said.
So why does he do it?
"It's in my blood. It always has
been," he said as he smiles.
Although his passion is high,
the strain of securing a living
was almost too much for Rain.
This night was especially diffi-
cult because of problems with the
neighbors, who had called the
police because the match was
making too much noise in the
secluded west Mulberry neigh-
borhood.
"I was really to the point' earli-
er where I wanted to quit. I
thought I had had enough after
24 years in the business.
"The guys all called me to the
back earlier and presented me
with a plaque thanking me for all
I've done and basically begged
me not to give up just yet. I can't
really tell you how that felt. It
was a room full of the some of the

"They're a good team," Bartow
High School's softball head coach
was quoted as saying a few weeks
earlier. "I wouldn't be surprised if
we see them (the Auburndale
Bloodhounds) again."
Prophecy, it seems, is just one
of the services Glenn Rutenbar
offers.
Auburndale did its part in ful-
filling that prophesy earlier
Tuesday night when they defeat-
ed New Port Richey Gulf High
School 1-0 in their regional semi-
final game, That assured the
Hounds a place in the Class 4A
Region 3 Championship Game on
Friday.
The only question for the Bow-
Wows was: Where would the
Friday night game be played?
Welcome back to The Hive,
Hound Dogs!
The BHS Lady Jackets played
host to the Lady Eagles of
Groveland South Lake High
School on Tuesday evening and
eked out a 2-0 victory to increase
their record to 27-2 and set up
another: re-match with
Auburndale.
Tuesday was a so-so night for
the 'Bug bats, but another out-
standing performance from the
"Throwin' Bartowan," Lindsay
Littlejohn, proved to be too much
for the eager Eagles.
The ever-impressive Littlejohn
fanned 14 Fowl bailers, walked
one and gave up just one hit in
ian he seven innings in the circle. With
astling the win, Littlejohn improved her
to pin senior year record to 18-1.
)ut 70. Bartow scored its first run in
Estling the bottom of the third inning
Rustin when Whitney Little led off with
a double to shallow left field.
Most people would have managed


a single on the hit, but not
"Laser" Little. Before the ball
took its second bounce on the
grass, the speedster was coasting
into second base.
A perfect sacrifice bunt by
Staci Fernandez sent Little to
third base. Then "Miss Ellie,"
Elizabeth Howell, ripped a single
to rack the first run for the Bugs.
The score remained an uneasy
1-0 until the bottom of the sixth
inning, when the,Ladies got an
insurance run.
Littlejohn led off with a single
and was replaced at first base
with Brianna Leverett, who came
in as a courtesy runner. Leverett
stole second base, then was sacri-
ficed to third by Kara Rutenbar.
The next batter, designated
player Mallory Butler, fooled the
Fowls with a push bunt that went
between the pitcher and first
baseman. The pitcher stopped the
ball sliding on her knees, but was
unable to get either Butler at first
or Leverett as she slid into home.
Coach Rutenbar was thankful
for the win; if a little dubious
about the batting.
"You get two lead-off doubles,
you can't ask for much more than
that, but we didn't get as many
runs as we'd like off of them. And,
of course, you can't ask for better
pitching.
"We'll need to hit the ball bet-
ter Friday," said Coach.
So now it has come to this -
once again the road to the Final
Four goes straight through Polk
County.

Tiny Tae Kwon Do Students


Share Olympic-SizedDream


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Endurance, speed, courage and
an indomitable spirit these are
the skills needed to succeed in the
individual sport of Tae Kwon Do.
This weekend, 10 students from
Park's Tae Kwon Do Studio in
Bartow will make a trip down to
Fort Lauderdale for a shot to quali-
fy for Junior Olympics. Three of
them will be competing in the adult
division for the chance to partici-
pate in the United States Olympic
qualifiers
Each student will compete in his
respective age, belt and weight divi-
sion. They will square off against a
Tae Kwon Do student of similar
rank, and spar for points.
"Each kid has a different phase
that they are in. We are all working
towards competing at the black belt
level. Right now, this competition is
a stepping stone for the students on
their way toward becoming a
national athlete," said David Park,
owner and master of Park's Tae
Kwon Do.
The *competition on Saturday is
one of only six qualifying tourna-
ments in the nation. The actual
Junior Olympics will be held later
this year in Texas, where the stu-
dents hope to end up.
"The qualifier for Junior
Olympics is a good way for them to
get used to that serious and intense
atmosphere. of competition," Park
said.
The students traveled to
Melbourne earlier in the year for a
warm-up tournament, but Park
said this "is the big one" that Tae
Kwon Do students all over the
nation shoot for.
To prepare for the competition,


Park said he has put the students
through extra cardiovascular work-
outs, along with constant repetition
of the basic moves.
Spirits are high, and Park said
he expects maximum effort from
everyone involved.
"I've told them, if they try their
best, work hard, persevere and
have a strong attitude, that's all I
can ask from them." he said. "It's all
about conquering your own fear.
The winning will come in time arid
I think they realize that."
Park said his philosophy is not to
become afraid of a challenge, and
that message has worked its way
down to thestudents.
"Every kid picks up a little of
their master's personality, and that
can be a good or bad thing They've
definitely picked up a little of my
sarcasm," Park joked.
Two of the students, 18-year old
Jason White and 10-year old
Clayton Whidden, didn't show a
sarcastic side, but definitely had
senses of humor.
"You can come back and inter-
view me after I win the whole
thing," said a confident White, who
has only been doing Tae Kwon Do
for six months.
"I feel real confident and I've
been working hard," he added.
White said the earlier competi-
tion in Melbourne really gave him
an idea of what would be expected.
of him to win at the qualifying tour-
nament and he has been working
toward that ever since.
"It's all about discipline and self
control while you are really tired,"
he said.
The multitalented White, son of
Ray and Sherrie White, can also be
seen on the small stage this evening
as he takes on the role of "Luigi" at


the Gause Academy dinner theater
production of "Who Poisoned His
Meatball?"
Meanwhile, the diminutive
Whidden may not have the brash
confidence of his fellow student, but
is definitely looking forward to
going to the competition with his
parents Michael and Marta.
"It's going to be great, I'm really
excited," Whidden said. "But I'll be
a little bit nervous with all those


SPEEDSTER WHITNEY LITTLE was more than halfway to
the bag before the South Lake defense knew what hit them. Little
got on base twice for the Jackets on Tuesday and scored the winning
run in the 2-0 victory in the regional semi-finals. For her efforts,
Little was named the Shady Oak Cafe "Player of the Game." (Staff

Florida's Old Capitol


Dwarfed by the "new" capitol in stature, Florida's historic Old Capitol is outshines the modern structure in charm
and atmosphere.
Sitting at the "T" formed by Monroe Street and Apalachee Parkway in Tallahassee, the columned building, with
red and white striped awnings, is now a museum.
S In its present location since 1845, the Old Capitol was expanded several times, but retains the original floor plan
in the center of the building. The last state employees left the building, outgrown by Florida's government, in 1978.
After selective demolition, the Capitol was restored to its 1902 appearance and opened as a museum in 1982.
Artifacts and reproductions are displayed in the Governor's Suite (the secretary's and stenographer's office from
the early 1900s are below left) and Supreme Court and in the Senate (left center, with cutouts of Josiah T. Walls,
Verle Pope and Elizabeth Johnson) and House chambers. Displays include memorabilia from gubernatorial cam-
paigns, civil rights events, inaugural gowns and other historic items.
Stained glass in the rotunda's dome is delicately offset by the white woodwork and pink ceiling (top left). The
staircase (below) was trod by legislators, justices and citizens through many of Florida's good, bad and
"everyday"times.
The Old Capitol is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and
Sunday, noon to 4:30 p.m., except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Admission is free. For more information call
850-187-1902.

Reverend Henderson's theme
comes from the story in the Bible
about the men who tried to take a
friend to be healed by Jesus, but
the building was too full to allow
them to enter. They cut a hole in
the roof and let down their
friend's pallet by holding onto a
rope and gradually lowering him,
where he was immediately
healed.

Musings From God's Penman


God Created Everything, Then He Created Mothers


By REV. JAMES SNYDER
I am one of those who believe
God created everything.
I take the book of Genesis by
faith and reston the character of
God.
I simply believe the Bible. I
have studied and read my Bible
for many years, and have never
found it to be wrong on anything
significant.
Sure, there are plenty of things
in the Bible I do not understand,
but I trust God. Something as
important as the creation of the
S world would carry enormous
weight and significance.
The Bible simply assumes that
God is the Creator and so do I.
.. Some people, however, do not
*. believe in the biblical account of
creation. They hold to the theory
of evolution.
I have never had the time to
explore all of the ideas on this. So
many people have monkeyed
around with speculations on the
origin of things, the waters are
muddied beyond all reasonable
hope.
As a pastor, much of my time is
taken up with my pastor duties.
As a grandfather, I try to spend
Vallace, time with the grandchildren. As a
Wally husband, I spend a lot of time
imerce eluding the Mistress of the
o) Parsonage's "honey-do-list."
Not always successfully, I
might add.
These three things leave little
time for other pursuits such as
the theory of evolution.
If evolution is true, I would like
to know several things. If man
Mayor evolved from monkeys, then why
clama- are there still so many monkeys
rge W. in the world?
Day of You cannot go to any zoo any-
ce of where without finding scores of
emcee these delightful little creatures.
The last time I was at the zoo, I
Bartow pondered this query. If evolution
More; is true, have these remnant mon-
npany; keys, for some reason, refused to
nd The make the last leap into manhood?
patronss Or, before making the step, did
Bank; they see how men live and treat
e; Pete each other and stepped back into
ie and their safe world of monkeyhood?
Ilis & No monkey I know wants to
)il Co., take credit for the shape this
:e, Leo world is in.
Vhite's Another,thing I want to know
s. The according tp the theory of evo-
3F AM lution, man represents the high-
.th the est intelligence in the evolution-
ary order. If that is so, how do you


explain politicians?
Perhaps the best clue to the
Creatorship of God would be one
magnificent creation. If I had to
boil all God's creative genius
down to just one specimen, I
would have no trouble whatsoev-
er.
After God created everything
else, the last thing on his agenda
was mother. To say that mother is
a special creative work of God is
to put it rather lightly.
God poured into motherhood
all His wonderful capacity for
wisdom, love, and ingenuity.
Something happens to a young
woman when she becomes a
mother. Up until that time she
may be carefree and slightly care-
less, but when the "blessed event"
occurs, a miracle takes place
within the body and mind of that
young woman.
I have seen it happen so many
times, but I can't explain it. The
first thing that takes place in a
mother is supersonic hearing. No
matter how much noise is
swirling around, a mother, can
always hear the voice of her own
child.
As a young lad in short pants,
many times I thought harshly of
my mother's supersonic hearing
ability. No matter how quietly I
tried to sneak out of the house
after "lights-out," my mother
heard me.
No matter how many kids were
in the basement of our house
yelling and having a great time,
all I had to do was open my mouth
once and mother would yell down
and say, "Jimmie, try to be quiet
down there. You're making too
much noise."
What amazed me more were
those few times when she yelled
down before I had a chance to
open my mouth. What was that
all about?
Then there is the matter of her
X-ray vision.
There was one rule in our
house at suppertime. We all had
to wash our hands and face before
coming to the table. My mother
had some kind of hygienic fetish.
The smallest speck of dirt would
send her into frenzy.
Many times, I would come to
the table and my mother would
say, "I still;see some dirt on your
neck. Go wash again."
Most of the time when she said
this, she had her back turned
away from me working over the


kitchen stove. I have often won-
dered if mothers have eyes in the
back of the heads, just like school-
teachers.
No matter where my mother
was, she seemed to be able to see
me and know exactly what I was
doing.
Another thing about mothers
that I still cannot figure out is
their built-in lie detector. My
mother could spot a lie six days
ahead of time.
No matter how much time and
effort I put into a story, my moth-
er could always figure it out. She
always knew when I was lying.
Don't tell me how she knew, but
she always knew.
There is some evidence" sug-
gesting the Superman character
of comic book fame was based on
a real life mother.
Perhaps God created mothers
the way He did because He knew
what a job it would be to raise lit-
tle boys and see that they become
respectable men.
Even the great Apostle Paul
acknowledged the importance of
mothers when he wrote to young
Timothy.
"When I call to remembrance
the unfeigned faith that is in

We Arean Emnatio


We Are an Emanation

of God

When asked where we come from, most of us think of our parents
. or a geographic locale rather than the ultimate source of our being,
which is Spirit. We come from God, and the only reason that most
of us don't recognize this is that our bodies delude us into thinking
that we are separate from everything else. Ultimately, we are all
connected through this connection with the one Spirit, but often our
individual egos may not allow us to see this. Our bodies convince us
that we are unique, separate. beings. As physical beings, we are
indeed unique and separate from all else, but as spiritual beings,
we are part of a greater whole. As physical beings, we undergo con-
stant change,.and will eventually die, but as spiritual beings, we
are eternal. We should remember then, that we are connected to
God, and are indeed part of God, an emanation from a holy source.
So we do not lose heart.

SThough our outer nature is wasting away,
our inner nature is being renewed
every day.

Rebuilding With Prayer in

The Aftermath of Hurricanes


V- Most of us are 'bracing our-
Sselves for June and the start of
this hurricane season.
Many ,are still rebuilding
homes, businesses, and lives.
In a workshop Tuesday, May
S24, in Lakeland, nationally-recog-
.nized speaker Sarah Hyatt will
'spaak: on "prayer that instills a
desire to find something good,

Sence peace
S'The workshop will be held at 7
p.m. at Polk-Theatre, 121 South
SFloyida A'.-eni', one block south
of Main Street.
''Ms. Hyatt will provide ideas
and resources for:
SBreaking down despair,
Rebuilding with hope, and
: Handling challenges with the
help of gratitude.
"Too often we think that who
we are is dictated by. circum-
stances beyond our control, old
baggage, past mistakes, or hard
times imposed by severe weather,


family worries, or financial strug-
gles," Ms. Hyatt said.
"Sometimes the problem is as
basic as what we see in the mir-
ror in the morning, or the storm
debris outside. It's hard to meet
daily challenges, much less be
inspired to be part of the solution
at home, school, or work, when
the view we have of ourselves is
overwhelmed. A new view is
needed, one that is freeing and
empowering." .
Ms. Hyatt is' a, professional
speaker with more than 15 years
experience helping others find
spiritual solutions to everyday

SReflections On


aFaith

By Roger Campbell


By ROGER CAMPBELL

The letter on my desk is dated
29, Jan., 91, but it carries an up-
to-date message.
Fourteen years ago, :the
sender, Major Louis Best, began
his long distance message saying,
"I am sitting. on the Saudi border
with Iraq and waiting for the
expected trek north after the air
campaign does its job."'
Major Best wrote to me for
three reasons: to thank me for my
column of that week, which he
had read in a newspaper sent to
him by the school district near his
home; to tell me how he had been
brought to faith in Christ years
earlier while fighting a forest fire
in the state of Washington; and'to
ask me to pray for him and all
involved in the war.
This man of faith was especial-
ly concerned about the spiritual,
needs of those soon to lay their
lives on the line in battle. While
we had never met, he felt free to
share his concerns with me and
ask for prayer, believing the miles
between us wouldn't matter to
the One who hears prayer since
He holds the whole world in His.
hands.
The long distance phone call I
*received from a minister was to
ask for prayer regarding a differ-
ent kind of battle, a spiritual war
that was being waged in, his
church.. I've received many
requests from ministers for
prayer, but thiscry for help was
different. When pastors call ask-
ing for prayer, they are usually
under fire from problem-prone
-people in their congregations, but
this preacher had concluded, he
was the problem.
"I've been watching what's
been happening in my church and
see that I'm the reason for it," he
said, adding "Pray that.I will be
revived."
"You're halfway, there,'' I
replied. :


The moment we face up to our
faults and start doing something
about them, we are on our way to
greater effectiveness.
This- minister was determined
to remove any roadblocks to spir-
itual renewal in his church by
enlisting some long distance
praying for the needed break-
through in his church to begin in
him.
Evangelist Dwight L. Moody
once said he faced his worst
enemy each morning while shav-
ing. He didn't mean he hated his
image in the mirror, but in con-
fronting his weaknesses early
and overcoming them before they
spoiled his day, he increased his
potential to make a difference in
Sthe lives of others and the world.
We're still reaping the benefits
of his early morning honesty and
prayers.
"In the last days, perilous
times'will come,"'wrote Paul to a
young minister (2 Timothy 3:1).
And with the rise of worldwide
terrorism, ,'it's easy to see why
many students of Bible prophecy
see present perils as fulfillments
of Paul's prediction. Current con-
ditions incubate fear about what's
ahead, but it's important to
remember that nothing takes
,,God by surprise and prayer
changes things.
Political solutions fail, but
prayer prevails.
Those who choose to major on
prayer choose best.
Let communities be challenged
"and comforted by the possibilities
of prayer, and churches be packed
with praying people; then the
Biblical promise for periods of
peril will produce personal peace:
"If My people who are called by
My name will humble them-
selves, and pray and seek My
face, and turn from their wicked
ways, then I will hear from heav-
en, and forgive their sins and
heal their land". (2 Chronicles
7: 14) .

Seeds from

the Sower

By Michael A. Guido

A bride of a few days came
onto her husband who was loaf-
ing.
"Why aren't you working?"
she demanded.
"I was fired with enthusiasm,"
he answered, "because I wasn't
fired with enthusiasm."
The Bible speaks of some peo-
ple who were like that fellow.
They were living close enough to
the church to be warmed by the
church, and they were living
close enough to the world to be
chilled by the world.
Our Lord said to them, "You
are neither hot nor cold. I wish
you were one or the other. But
since you are lukewarm, I will
Sspue you out of My mouth."
In Christianity, there's no
room for neutrality. If you ha-
ven't declared yourself for
Christ, you've declared yourself
against Christ.
Are you for Him or against
Him?

Our car broke down, and a
mechanic was working under the
hood.
His helper stood by with a
flashlight, but he became inter-
ested in our dog and the light
went out.
"Shine your light," shouted
the mechanic. "That's what
you're here for."
To the Christian our Lord
said, "You are the light of the
world."
And what are you here for? To
"shine your light."
He didn't say, "You are the
light of the church," but "of the
world."
If the effects of your Christi-
anity stop at the church, it's of
no use to anyone.
You should be just as much a
Christian at the playground as
at the prayer meeting, in your
house as in God's house, at the
plant as in your pew.
Is your light shining?
There can be no success with-
out suffering. They go together.
If you succeed without suffer-
ing, it's because someone suf-
fered before you. If you suffer
without succeeding, it's because
someone will succeed after you.
When Uganda was opened to
the Bible, Bishop Hannington
suffered. Dying at the hands of
his killer, he said, "Tell your
leader that I open the road to
Uganda with my life."
Our Lord opened the way to
heaven with. His life. The poet
wrote: "There is no other good
enough to pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate of
heav'n and let us in."

Asparagus


For


Spring


Nothing says spring like
yummy asparagus.
In addition to being delicious,
asparagus is also a versatile veg-
etable. It holds its flavor when
roasted or steamed.
Don't let the stalks scare you,
though. Just bend and snap
where the stalk breaks easily..
Wash thoroughly and heat and
serve.
All recipes come from
www.meals.com.
