AFTER A SUCCESSFUL
YEAR in the Read 180 pro-
gram at Gause, students got
to participate in 1950s themed
activities on Wednesday at
Mary Holland park on
Wednesday, including a toy
car race (above) and a hula-
hoop contest (right) complete
with prizes and ribbons.

Students of Successful Reading

Program Treated to 50s Fun Day


Gause Academy students in
the Read 180 program were treat-
ed to an afternoon fun from the
past, including a trip to Sonic and
a 50s themed field day at Mary
Holland Park.
Students transferred from sta-
tion to station, where they took
part in activities students from
the 1950s enjoyed, including Silly
Putty art, hula hoop contests,
marbles, car races, jump rope,


hop scotch and a "Sit on It!" bal-
loon contest.
Gause Academy has reported
success with the Read 180 pro-
gram, which aims to improve
reading proficiency by making
the experience fun and enjoyable.
The students meet in one
classroom for a large group activ-
ity. After this is completed, the
students are divided into groups
of 10. One group goes to a "read-


ing station," another group works
on computers while a third group
receives instruction from a
teacher.
Group sessions last 25 minutes
and the students rotate three

times.
Teachers at Gause have report-
ed that the activities, venue
changes and variety make it fun
to learn and keep the students
involved and interested.


Zoning Board Suggests


Lower Bond Requirement


For Property Developers


Bartow will require developers
to post a bond covering only one-
fourth of the value of infrastruc-
tire improvements in their subdi-
visions if the city commission
approves a recommendation of
the zoning board.
SActing at the recommendation
of Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers,
the board voted to recommend
that the city require developers to
post a bond covering only 25 per-
cent of the value of the infrastruc-
ture, not 100 percent, which is
the city's current policy.
"We've never had to collect," he
said. 'We've never had a prob-
lem."
City officials monitor construc-
tion of infrastructure, he said,
adding: "Twenty-five percent is
still somewhat high."
Brent Geohagan, a lawyer
opposing high-density develop-


ment on E.F. Griffin Road, told
the zoning board: "Bartow is
already known as a development-
friendly jurisdiction," and encour-
aged the city to maintain the 100
percent requirement.
Board Member Susan Brewer
moved that the requirement be
lowered to 25 percent, Board
Member Bo Raulerson seconded,
and the vote was unanimous.
The board also:
Recommended that the city
annex four parcels of land, com-
prising 19.5 acres, west of Crown
Avenue, north and south of the
railroad tracks. The largest par-
cel is the old citrus canning plant.
Recommended that the city
code be amended to allow modu-
lar buildings in all zoning dis-
tricts not just in residential
zones and to allow "temporary
modular buildings" for limited


periods of time.
Postponed action on a
request by Curtis Schley to
declare as surplus a parcel of
property north of his home
between Shumate Drive and
"Little Broadway" and sell it to
him without calling for bids. A
neighbor, Richard J. Wilkes, said
the city vacated its ownership of
the property 33 years ago, and he
thinks Schley already owns the
land. The zoning board deferred
action until that question is
cleared up.
Recommended to the city
commission that it declare as sur-
plus a small piece of land on
Valencia Boulevard, 800 north
feet of north of Gandy Road, and
offer it to sale to Dan and Juanita
Hamman without calling for bids.


An ordinance creating a $45
per year "stormwater utility" tax
to help pay for the cost of dispos-
ing of stormwater will be consid-
ered by the Bartow city commis-
sion tonight.
It would provide a designated
funding source for drainage
improvements to relieve flooding
that occurs in several areas of the
city in heavy rainstorms.
The $45 tax would be levied on
single-family residences or
"equivalent residential units." An
ERU is the average amount of
water shed from a single family
home.
Mobile homes and apartment
units would be taxed as three-
fourths of an ERU. or $33.75, on
the premise that they shed less
rainwater than single-family
homes.
Commercial property also
would be charged based on the
ERU concept. A business that
sheds three times as much water
as the average home would be
assessed as three ERUs, or $135.
The stormwater utility fee
would be collected on annual tax
bills by the county tax collector. It
would be assessed on all property,
including government buildings
and churches, which are exempt
from ad valorem property taxes.
An ordinance creating the
stormwater utility, but without
saying how much the tax would
be, was adopted on first reading
by the city commission on May 2.
It will come up for a public hear-
ing when it is considered for final
passage on June 6.

uled to come up for a public hear-

Hoping to encourage develop-
ment of some homesites in
Bartow on half-acre and one-acre
lots, the zoning board voted unan-
imously to recommended to the
city commission that Bartow cre-
ate RE-1 and RE-2 zoning dis-
tricts.
Those zones would limit devel-
opment to jne or two houses per
acre, creating more exclusive zon-
ing than R-1-5A, presently
Bartow's least dense subdivision
standard.
The move toward Rural Estate
zoning came at the request of
homeowners on E.F. Griffin Road,
most of whose homes are on lots
of one acre or larger.
The city has annexed hundreds
of acres of vacant land on E.F.
Griffin Road, and has zoned most
of it R-l, which permits homesites
that are 70 feet wide, or about six
houses per acre. Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers, has said that
when land is reserved for streets
and other infrastructure, the


ing on June 20.
The first tax would be on this
October's tax bills, which are
payable in 2006.

Water/Sewer Increase

A public hearing will be held
tonight on an ordinance increas-
ing water and sewer rates by
$1.60 per month for most resi-
dents. That is what the increase
would be for use of up to 5,000
gallons of water per month, which
the city's rate consultant said is
the rate of consumption for 95
percent of the city's residents.
Several other ordinances also
will be considered on second read.-
ing tonight; a public hearing will
preceded the vote on each ordi-
nances.
Those ordinances would:
Annex .78 of an acre of land
that is part of the expansion of
Wildwood Cemetery.
Rezone a parcel of land at
Clower Street and County Road
555 from R-l (single family resi-
dential) to R-3 (apartments) and
C-4 (neighborhood commercial).
Annex two acres of land on
Lyle Parkway, a half-mile west of
Maple Avenue, designated it for
low density residential develop-
ment, and zone it R-l with the
provision that only one house
could be built on the parcel.
Approve the final plat of
Laurel Meadows Phase 2, and
accept the infrastructure for pub-
lic maintenance.
The commission will meet for a
work session at 5 o'clock this
afternoon at city hall, and will
reconvene for its regular business


actual development is closer to
3.3 houses per acre.
In presenting the recommen-
dation for RE-1 and RE-2 zoning,
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
eliminated his previous recom-
mendation that "transitional zon-
ing" be required between existing
one-acre homesites and 70-foot
lots. That change prompted some
opposition.
Sam Thomas, who lives on E.F.
Griffin Road, commended the
zoning board for insisting that
Wiegers present a Rural Estate
zoning proposal.
Terry Frost, who lives on a
multi-acre homesite in the area,
said that larger lots "will be more
marketable, more financially
sound."
She asked why Wiegers had
eliminated the concept of "transi-
tional zoning" from his recom-
mendation, saying:
"I'm sorry to hear that protec-
tion has been removed."
"It will come back" Wiegers
told her, acknowledging: "The
interest is there."
Mrs. Frost also asked why
Wiegers had proposed removing


meeting at 6:30.

Meeting Time Change

The commission will consider
on first reading an ordinance to
change the time of the commis-
sion's meetings. At the work ses-
sion, the commission will consider
which, if any, of three alternatives
proposed by City Atty. George
Dunlap will be considered.
Those alternatives would:
Begin the work session at 5,
with the regular meeting to follow
immediately. If there were no
work session, the regular meeting
would begin at 5.
Begin the work session at 5,
with the regular meeting to follow
immediately, but on days with no
work session, the regular meeting
would begin at 6:30.
Combine the work session
and the business session into a
single meeting beginning at 5,
with the work session as the first
item of business.
Other items on the agenda:

Rural Estate Zoning

Preliminary action on zoning
board recommendations to
(1) Create Rural Estate 1 and
Rural Estate 2 zoning categories,
which would allow construction
densities of one home and two
homes per acre.
(2) Allow modular buildings to
be installed anywhere in the city,
not just in residential zones.
(3) Waive bidding and sell to
Dan and Juanita Hamman a par-
cel of city-owned land east of
Valencia Boulevard, 800 feet


the number of houses per acre
from the city's land development
code.
Wiegers replied that anyone
interested in development stan-
dards can do the math for them-
selves, and discover that R-1 zon-
ing, which requires lots of 7,500
square feet, equals 5.8 homes per
acre. But with land taken out for
streets and other improvements,
the actual density allowable in an
R-1 subdivision is 3.3 homes per
acre, he said.
"Why not write 3.3 homes per
acre into the code?" Mrs. Frost
asked.
"What if somebody wants 3.31
houses per acre?" Wiegers replied.
"I want it to be a number you
can tell the public," Mrs. Frost
said. "It would be helpful to the
public for the (development) chart
to be more informative."
Tim Murphy, who lives on E.F.
Griffin Road, said he had heard
that the city has received letters
suggesting that the city should
ignore concerns of people who live
outside the city limits, as he does.
Murphy said that while his home
is not in Bartow, he has paid


north of Gandy Road.
(4) Reduce the performance
bond required of developers on
infrastructure in new subdivi-
sions from 100 percent to 25 per-
cent of the value of the improve-
ments.
(5) Annex four parcels of land
comprising 19.5 acres on the west
side of Crown Avenue.
Scheduling of dates for
visioning and goal setting meet-
ings, for town hall meetings, for
review of commission policies and
procedures, and for joint meet-
ings with city advisory boards
and committees.
A review of appointees and
assignments, and of assignment
of commissioners to act.as liaison
to various boards and commit-
tees.
Proclamations designating
May 8 through 14 as National
Women's Health Week, May 15 to
21 as Police Week, and May 15 as
Peace.Officers Memorial Day.
Consideration of a one-year
appointment to the board of direc-
tors to the Central Florida
Development Council.
Approval of an agreement
with the Polk County under
which the county will transfer to
the city ownership of a portion of
the Old Eagle Lake Road, and the
county will pay the city $650,000
for redesign of the intersection of
that road with Wilson Avenue.
Wilson Avenue is to be extended
north to Bartow Regional Medical
Center.
Approval of an agreement
with Wellington View Subdivision
on Connersville on extension of
city water service.


taxes on businesses (including
Murphy Chevrolet) for 27 years.
He also apologized for any
comments that Wiegers had
taken personally.
Board Member Bo Raulerson
responded: 'The very idea that
Tim Murphy and John Frost are
not Bartowans is asinine."
He said he had been told that
the zoning board should ignore
their concerns, adding: "I think
that's just ridiculous."
He said that the developers
seeking to build homes on E.F.
Griffin Road live in Lakeland.
T. Franklin Black, who lives on
E.F. Griffin Road, outside the city
limits, told the board he considers
Bartow to be his lifelong home.
'We want the city's growth in
the right direction," he said,
telling the zoning board: "I appre-
ciate what you're doing."
"Obviously people want larger
lots," Raulerson said.
The recommendation to the
city commission that the city cre-
ate RE-I and RE-2 zoning passed
unanimously.

Patricia Bowen, Leon Gifford
and, Kay Hutzelman, all mem-
bers of the Frostproof Art
League, are exhibiting artwork
at the Polk Community College
Fine Arts Gallery on the Winter
Haven campus.
The work will be on view
through May 19.
Patricia Bowen is a self-
taught artist, an art teacher and
a home maker. She has received
awards of distinction and the
Laura Bell Award.
Her oils lean towards realism
with a touch of impressionism,
she said.
"I amn an avid student of the
works by Helen Van Wyk," she
said. "Some other artists have
contributed their ideas which
have helped to inspire me and
keep me growing."
Leon Gifford is a retired


graphic artist. He has received
several best of show awards.
He currently works in water-
colors and acrylic.
Kay Hutzelman, president of
the Frostproof Chamber of Com-
merce and vice-mayor of Frost-

ence degree and a master's de-
gree from Indiana University.
Her awards include best of
show from the Frostproof Art
League ad Gallery.
She works in acrylics, water-
color and water based oils.
"I am considered an impres-
sionist, which seems to fit the
subjects," she said. "I like paint-
ing the natural settings of Flor-
ida and the many forms of life
and wildlife."
The gallery is open Monday
through Thursday from 10 a.m.
to noon. Admission is free.

Students Can Meet


High Expectations


We are always pleased but never sur-
prised -- when one of our schools in
Bartow or Fort Meade is recognized for
excellence.
Last year, fourth graders at Gause-
Riverside Academy in Fort Meade, a
school for at-risk students, had the highest
mean score in Polk County 4.5 on the
FCAT writing assessment test. The highest
mean score in the state was 4.6.
They did it again this year: the only
school in the county to achieve a 4.5 aver-
age.
Bartow's International Baccalaureate
program has been recognized as one of the
best in the world.
The latest honor achieved by Bartow
schools is the ranking of Bartow High
School, including the IB program, among
the best 1,000 high schools in the country
by Newsweek. magazine, based on the
number of students taking IB and
Advanced Placement tests.
BHS ranked 253rd in the nation; it was
the only school in Polk County to make the
list, and one of five in Florida. School offi-
cials said:that IB/AP test participation is
continuing to rise at the school, by both
International Baccalaureate and regular
Bartow High School students.
There is, we suggest, a common thread
in the exemplary performance of at-risk
fourth graders, mainstream high school
students, and academically gifted IB stu-
dents: expectations.
Faculties at all three schools and at
numerous other schools throughout the
country are expecting exceptional per-
formance from their students.
"Good enough" is not good enough.
It goes without saying that different stu-
dents have different abilities, both scholas-
tic and athletic.
Better educators, like better coaches,
have the knack of inspiring their students
to perform at their maximum potential.
They make it known that they have high
expectations.


The state establishes minimum stan-
dards, primarily the FCAT test, for
advancement through the academic ranks.
And schools themselves are evaluated in
large part on the number of students who
achieve passing grades. This is at the core
of accountability.
But excellence is achieved when expec-
tations are high.
Ideally, the expectations begin at home,
expectations that students will be regular
in their attendance, diligent in their stud-
ies, and faithful in their adherence to dress
codes and other school policies.
Given students who come to school with
that level of support from their homes,
teachers can take them to the next level by
establishing high expectations in the class-
room.
While IB and AP classes represent the
highest level of academic expectation in
the public school system, Gause-
Riverside's showing for the past two years
underscores that gifted students have no
lock on superior performance.
Students at every level who are well
taught and highly motivated can achieve
high expectations.
To the students and faculty at Bartow
High School, IB Bartow, and Gause-
Riverside, congratulations for demonstrat-
ing again that local schools are where great
things happen.

NASHVILLE, TENN. Your
story about Faith Hicks highlighted
the tragic shortage of human organs
for transplant operations. More than
half of the people who need an organ
transplant in the United States will
die before they get one. Most of these
deaths are needless. Americans bury
or cremate about 20,000 trans-
plantable organs every year. Over
6,000 of our neighbors suffer and die
needlessly every year as a result.
There is a simple solution to the
organ shortage give organs first to
people who have' agreed to donate
their own organs when they die.


Giving organs first to organ
donors will convince more people to
register as organ donors. It will also
make the organ allocation system
fairer. About 70 percent of the organs
transplanted in the United States go
to people who haven't agreed to
donate their own organs when they
die. People who aren't willing to
share the gift of life shouldn't be eli-
gible for transplants as long as there
is a shortage of organs.
Anyone who wants to donate
their organs, to others who have
agreed to donate theirs can join
LifeSharers. LifeSharers is a non-


profit network of organ donors who
agree to offer their organs first to
other organ donors when they die.
They do this through a form of
directed donation that is legal in all
50 states and under, federal law.
Anyone can join for free at www.life-
sharers.com. LifeSharers has 3,085
members, including 195 members in
Florida. Over 300 of our members are
minor children enrolled by their par-
ents.


Didl you wake up gr umpy this
morning?
No, I just let her sleep.
Old Vaudeville joke,
probably.

"Somebody who has a web site
called SmileMania has organized
the Great American Grump Out
on May 25," I said to my friend
Mary.
"Does that mean. you're sup-
posed to be grumpy that day, or
not be grumpy?" she asked.
If you know Mary, you know
she's a little smarter than the
average bear, and you normally
would expect her to figure this
out for herself.
But after working until 11
o'clock the previous night, she
had to be at a breakfast meeting
at 8 o'clock that morning. (So did
I, but I arrived 15 minutes late;
my friends don't expect anything
better from me. Mary has a repu-
tation to maintain.)


She was not at the top of her
game.
"It's not 'Take Your Grump To
Work Day'," I explained.
"It's like the Great American
Smoke-Out. For one entire day,
you're not supposed to be
grumpy."
Intrigued by the concept, I
went to SmileMania (okay, it's got
all that http and slash-slash and
www and dot-com stuff in the
address, but your six-year-old
can find it for you if you haven't
figured out how it works). The
Grumpmaster is Janice A. Hathy.
r TM TM
Every other word bears a
TM TM
trademark notice; I guess
sheTM figures sheTM invented
theTM concept ofTM grumpiness.
That said, she's got a great
sense of humor.
For instance, she tells us that
the official fruit of the Grump
OutTM is the banana, which she
describes as yellow on the out-
side and white on the inside. This


Uin 4'"


-'


woman leaves nothing to chance.
If you hold a banana approxi-
mately horizontal in the most log-
ical fashion, it resembles a smile.
"Should you begin to experi-
ence any grump withdrawal dis-
comfort, simply turn that smiley
banana upside down so it
becomes a frown. Stare at the
frown when no one is looking,"
she counsels.
She also lists the nutritional
features of a banana, which she
says can do everything from
sending oxygen to the brain to
lowering your blood pressure
and reducing the risk of stroke.
She posts a banana and prune
bread recipe which has only 2,228
calories.
She recommends carrying a
banana around with you on
Grump Out Day.
She also recommends carrying
such things as a clown nose and
bubble stuff around in your car,
and directing them at other dri-


vers at red lights. (Be sure not to
blow bubbles in a threatening
manner; if the guy in the next car
feels threatened, he may use
Florida's new "Shoot First, Ask
Questions Later" law to smoke
you like a cheap cigar.)
In addition to all the fun and
funny stuff, Ms. Hathy teaches
stress management and stress
reduction, stuff that goes beyond
clown noses and bottles of bubble
stuff.
Community newspaper pub-
lisher with staffs in three commu-
nities and one office that has been
uninhabitable since last Aug. 13
... me ... stress? Nothing a
banana won't fix.
Okay, the actual web site is
http:/ /www.smilemania.com.
And remember not to be a
grump on May 25.
Clown noses and bubble stuff
are optional, but would add a cer-
tain panache to the occasion.

Invest Social Security Trust Fund


WINTER HAVEN There is
so much confusion in the Social
Security debate that the main
problem is rarely discussed.
The 1983 payroll tax increase
has generated $1.7 trillion in sur-
plus Social Security money to
date, and it will have generated a
total surplus of $3.7 trillion by
2017. This money was to have
been saved and invested in pub-
lic issue marketable Treasury
bonds.
Instead, our government (both
Democrats and Republicans) has


been spending the Social Security
surplus on other programs since
it first appeared in 1984, and none
of it has been saved or invested.
The raiding of the trust fund
became a major issue in the 2000
presidential campaign, and both
Al Gore and George W. Bush
pledged to put the Social Security
surplus in a "lockbox" where it
was not to be touched for any-
thing except for the payment of
Social Security benefits.
Unfortunately, President Bush
did not keep his promise. He has


already spent more than $600 bil-
lion of Social Security surplus
money on other programs, and
he continues to spend more than
$400 million of Social Security
money each and every day.
The President has the authori-
ty to end this practice tomorrow
and invest all future Social
Security surplus in marketable
Treasury bonds as was the intent
of the 1983 legislation. The
American people should demand
that the government immediately
stop spending the Social Security


surplus on other programs and
invest the money in marketable
Treasury bonds.
If this is done, Bush can no
longer claim that the trust fund is
empty. It will contain "good-as-
gold," default-proof, marketable
Treasury bonds instead of the
worthless special issue IOUs that
Bush talks so much about.

Polk County Tourism Indus-
try Partners celebrated National
Tourism Week 2005 on Tuesday
with an awards luncheon at
Winter Haven's Best Western
Admiral's Inn.
The luncheon honored several
Polk County residents and or-
ganizations with awards includ-
ing the prestigious Dick Pope Sr.
Tourism Award. It was pre-
sented to Cypress Gardens Ad-
venture Park by Polk County's
Tourist Development Council.
The Dick Pope Sr. Tourism
Award is given in recognition of
an organization, or individual,
displaying outstanding market-
ing and customer service efforts
to improve Polk County's stand-
ing in the tourism industry and
Polk County's tourism related
businesses.
Park owner Kent Buescher ac-
cepted the award on behalf of
Cypress Gardens Adventure
Park and took the opportunity to
brief luncheon attendees on the
greater-than-expected atten-
dance the park has experienced
since opening last November.
Buescher said more than
800,000 guests have passed
through the entrance gates in
the five months since the park
reopened.

Doug Leonard, executive di-
rector of the Central Florida Re-
gional Planning Council for
nearly 14 years, announced last
week that he will retire on June
15.
Leonard, 62, of Winter Haven,
has been head of the CFRPC
since August 1991.

Lewis, Tom Macias, Pat Huff
and Gene Woods has been ap-
pointed to find a successor, and

near the Interstate 4 inter-
change, preceded the awards
luncheon.

luncheon also provided a perfect
backdrop to honor the visitors
center volunteer corps, the "Polk
Diplomats of Tourism," other-
wise affectionately known as the
Polk DOTs.
The M.Y. Lett Award, named
in memory of a volunteer, was
presented to Bob Fling.
With one year of service, the
Tennessee native is one of the
Visitor Center's newer volun-
teers, but his work ethic and
positive attitude have made a
tremendous impression in that
short time.

ven, earned the award for most
hours served by contributing
more than 280 hours of his time
during the past year.
A dedicated worker, Ragland
has been a Visitors Center vol-
unteer since 1998.
The Tourism Awareness
award was shared by husband
and wife team Bill and Eileen
Freely. Originally from New
York, the Freelys became Polk
DOTs in 2003, assisting with nu-
merous visitors center project
and special events, including the


own company, Best & Associ-
ates, and work'as a solo practi-
tioner from her home-based of-
fice.
Just a few years later, Ms.
Best was faced with a growing
business and decided to partner
with another solo practitioner to
form The Market Place.
She is a member of more than
15 national, state and local agri-
cultural organizations and
serves on the board of directors
for the Florida Ag Hall of Fame
and the Marion County Farm
Bureau.
She was named an All Ameri-
can Success Story by the Florida
Department of Education. She

versity of Florida's Department

WHEN LEARNING ABOUT Florida, nature makes the best
classroom. First graders at First Methodist School participated in
the Nature Classroom at Bok Tower as part of their Florida unit of
study. The students enjoyed looking for bird nests as they walked
along the nature trails and watched for the mockingbird and zebra
longwing, the state bird and butterfly. They were able to view the
Florida state tree, the sabal palm. Following their walk, each child
made a bird nest to take home. Pictured (from left) are: front -Ma-

may file a petition within four-
teen days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the date
of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the ap-
plicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a
petition within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a
waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative de-
termination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes. Any
subsequent intervention (in a
proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the ap-
proval of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, of the Florida Admin-
istrative Code.
A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the De-
partment's action is base must
contain the following informa-
tion:
(a) The name, address, and
telephone number of the peti-
tioner, the name, address, and
telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any,
the Department permit identifi-
cation number and the county
in which the subject matter or
activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and
when petitioner received notice
of the agency action or pro-
posed action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial inter-
ests are affected by the De-
partment action;
(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that
the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the
Department action;
(f) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged, in-
cluding the specific facts the
petitioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of the
agency's action; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by petitioner, stating
precisely the action petitioner
wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means
that the Department's final ac-
tion may be different from the
position taken by it in this per-
mit. Persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the
Department on the application
have the right to petition'to
become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the
requirements set forth above.
Mediation under Section
120.572, Florida Statutes, is not

Graduation Schedule May Affect Lady

Jackets' State Championship March


By MARK KING

Assistant Bartow High School
softball coach Brent Orr had
only one question.
"Do you know anybody with a
helicopter?"
It seems his son's graduation
will fall on the same day the
Bugs hope to be playing in the
state softball championships at
Ed Radice Sports Complex in
Tampa.
Orr was left to ponder this di-
lemma when the BHS Lady
Jackets defeated the Auburndale
Lady Bloodhounds 3-0 in the
Class 4A Region 3 Champion-
ship game Friday night before
an overflow crowd at Lady
Jacket Stadium, also known as
One Bug Place. With the win,
Bartow increased its record to
28-2 for the season.
More importantly, it sends
the Bartow team to its 13th Fi-
nal Four appearance, including.
the last nine in a row.
Underdogs coming into Fri-
day's game, the Hounds entered
the stadium with an air of confi-
dence. You could almost see the
word "UPSET" written on their
collective foreheads in blue spray
paint.
Indeed, they did leave the sta-
dium upset.
But this pack of Puppies was
anything but a pushover. They
worked Bartow's defense with
long at-bats, nipping out three
base hits off the Bug starter,
Lindsay Littlejohn. Amanda
Farmer, the Dawg catcher, had


two of the hits.
"They've hit us before," said
Coach Glenn Rutenbar. "Give
them credit. They're a tough
team."
Littlejohn, soon to be a Flor-
ida Gator, struck out seven bat-
ters and walked one, as she in-
creased her record to 19-1 this
season. But the scintillating sen-
ior had to rely on her defense,
the Great Wall of Bartow, to seal
this game.
First baseman Rachael Jack-
son was kept especially busy on
this Championship night, as she
had five unassisted outs in the
game. Her biggest play came in
the top of the fourth inning,
when the Hounds' hurler, Kris-
tin LeFan, lined a shot off her
bat down the first base line.
Jackson showed quick reflexes
as she lunged to her left to pick
off the liner and rob LeFan of a
probable extra-bases hit.
On offense, the Jackets were
as aggressive as usual on the
bases. In the bottom of the first
inning, "Itty Bitty" Britta Gid-
dens smashed a two bagger to
left field.
Whitney Little stepped up to
the plate with every intention of
hitting Giddens in for the score,
but she never got the chance.
Giddens took off on the first
pitch to Little attempting to
steal third.
Behind the plate, Farmer saw
Giddens break, and threw the
ball to third base. Someone, how-
ever, forgot to notify the third


baseman, as she had no idea
that the ball was coming her
way.
As Giddens slid into third, the
ball rolled into the grass behind
the bag. The Itty Bitty one
popped up and took off for home
at the urging of head coach Ru-
tenbar and easily crossed to the
plate to rack the first run for
Bartow.
In the bottom of the second in-
ning, with one out, Kara Ruten-
bar drew a walk. Then Mallory
Butler nailed a base hit to put
runners at first and second.
After the next batter, Rachael
Jackson, loaded the bases with
another Bug base hit, Jerrica
Sanchez launched a two-run sin-
gle of her own.
That completed the scoring
for the Ladies, but the batters
kept cranking out long drives
that the Auburndale defense
turned aside. However, down 3-
0 against the Lady Bug defense,
'the Pups' offense was in the dog-
house.
Next up for the BHS Lady
Jackets is the State semifinal
game Thursday at Ed Radice
Sports Complex in Tampa.
There they will take on the hot
Cocoa team (23-4), who defeated
Bishop Kenney High School 2-0
at noon.
Hmmm. It seems that the
Lady Jackets' seniors are all
scheduled for graduation that
same Thursday night at 8 p.m.
Anybody know someone with
a helicopter?

A Day in the Park ...


Parks in Bartow and Fort Meade are blooming and make a lovely-place to
walk the dog, exercise or picnic with friends and family. Leaves and wind cre-
ate a natural "chime" on a silhouetted tree in Bartow's Mary Holland Park
(above). Wildflowers border one of the lakes in the park (below). Pink, white,
red, lavender and deep purple oleanders are in full bloom bordering "Loop the
Lake" walking trail at Patterson Park in Fort Meade (bottom, left). The lake
edges are alive with baby coots, ducklings, birds and squirrels. (Staff pho-

Beware Of Charity Donation Requests


SFollowing the report of callers
soliciting donations for the Polk
County Sheriffs Office, Sheriff
Grady Judd is encouraging citi-
zens to verify that the donation-
seeker is legitimate.
f 1"The Polk County Sheriffs Of-
fiTe has never and will never so-
licit funds from the citizens of
Polk County," Judd said. "We do
not make telephone calls asking
for any type of donation, for any
reason. If you receive a phone
call of this nature, please gather
asmuch information as you can


about the incident, and contact
the appropriate local law en-
forcement agency in your area to
Report it."
Here are some tips to remem-
ber when asked for donations:
Ask for written information.
A legitimate organization will
give you information outlining
its mission, how your donation
will be used and proof that your
contribution is tax deductible.
Watch out for similar
sounding names. Some phony
charities use names that sound


or look like those of respected, le-
gitimate organizations.
Ask for identification. Many
states require paid fund-raisers
to identify themselves. as such
and to name the charity for
which they're soliciting.
Call the organization and
find out if they are aware of the
solicitation and have authorized
the use of its name. If not, you
may be dealing with sham solici-
tor.
Be skeptical if someone
thanks you for a pledge you don't


remember making. Check your
records if you have doubts about
a pledge you supposedly made.
Refuse high pressure ap-
peals. Legitimate charities will
not push you to give on the spot.
Do not send cash. For secu-
rity and tax record purposes, pay
by check. Write the official name
of the charity on the check.

CASE NO: 2005-CA-000275
Section: 08
ORDER DENYING PLAIN-
TIFF'S MOTION FOR REHEAR-
ING TO ALTER
OR AMEND A JUDGMENT
AND ORDER GRANTING PLAIN-
TIFF'S MOTION
FOR CLARIFICATION
STHIS MATTER is before the
Court on Plaintiff's Motion for Re-
hearing, Clarification, or to Alter,
or Amend a Judgment filed on
May 2, 2005. The Court, having
reviewed all submissions, and oth-
erwise being fully advised in this
matter, finds as follows:
This Court reasoned in a previ-
ous order that Section 6.1.1 Pro-
cedure for Petition, of the Polk
County Charter, (hereinafter re-
ferred to as "Section 6.1.1") con-
tained language that was ambigu-
ous in regards to an addition thirty-
day time period. The Court further
found the Respondent was correct
when she accepted all of the peti-
tions submitted to her office, as
she is an elected official vested
with the initial discretion that
reached a reasonable solution to
the ambiguity in Section 6.1.1.,
based on Eight is Enough in Pinel-
las v. Ruggles, 678 So. 2d 898
(Fla. 2d DCA 1663).
The Florida Supreme Court
reasoned the supervisor of elec-
tions could rely on an advisory
opinion that interpreted that sec-
tion. In that case the supervisor of
elections said she used her "best
judgment" in determining the
method of verifying signatures. Ul-
timately, the high court held, Kriva-
nek "correctly interpreted" the
statutory scheme. Similarly, in the
case at bar, he supervisor of elec-


tions used her best judgment to in-
terpret the Charter by seeking the
county attorney's "suggested inter-
pretation" and independently ren-
dered a final decision.
Here, much to the chagrin of
supervisor of elections, she did in-
terpret the Charter. It can hardly
be said that one who seeks a de-
termination for the meaning of
something is not trying to interpret
"obvious uncertainty" in the Char-
ter. Consequently, she did as
other supervisors of elections
have done by seeking a "sug-
gested interpretation" about ambi-
guity in the Charter from the
county attorney and then used her
discretion to accept all of the peti-
tions. Thus, interpreting the Char-
ter, that has now set a precedent
that the election process is one
year plus an additional thirty days.
This Court found her decision ra-
tional and not an abuse of her dis-
cretion based on the case law
cited in this Order. The Court fur-
ther hound she was correct when
she accepted all of the petitions
submitted to her office, as she is
an elected official vested with the
initial discretion that reached a
reasonable solution to the ambigu-
ity in Section 6.1.1. The Court did
not rule on the validity of the peti-
tions.'
The Court notes it would have
been premature to intervene be-
fore the Respondent took final
agency action. However, it has
now come to the attention of the
Court that the Respondent has
submitted the petitions to the
Board of County Commissioners.
Accordingly, the parties are to
clearly define their positions and
narrow the remaining issues in this
case at the status conference.
Therefore, it is ORDERED AND
ADJUDGED that Plaintiff's Motion
for a Rehearing, to Alter or Amend
a Judgment is DENIED. It is fur-
ther ORDERED that the Motion for
Clarification is GRANTED. The
Court retains jurisdiction to deter-
mine, if necessary, any entitlement
to attorney's fees and taxable
costs.
DONE AND ORDERED this
10th day of May, 2005.
