County Commission To Fund


Juvenile Justice Operations


Polk County commissioners
have agreed to continue a grant to
the Florida Dept. of Juvenile
Justice's Juvenile Assessment
Center, but beginning this year
DJJ will see a lot more of the
county's money.
Commissioners voted to pay
$150,000 of the $829,664 operat-
ing budget of Juvenile
Assessment Center, but that is
just a drop in the bucket of what
will be needed to fund all DJJ ser-
vices.
Presently funded by the state,
DJJ's detention operations will
become an expense of the counties

Asking yourself permission to
allow yourself to be considered to
become a part of yourself may
sound convoluted, but for the
Bartow Municipal Airport
authority, it's the business of the
day.
The airport authority, com-
prised of the Bartow city commis-
sion, has put forth a request to
the city to annex the airport into
the city.
"Well, I guess we send a letter
addressed to ourselves asking
that we annex us," joked Airport
Attorney George Dunlap at the
airport authority's monthly
meeting on Monday.
A yet-to-be written proposal
will go before the city planning
and zoning board before it is
brought before the city commis-
sion at a later date. No timetable
has been drawn up but City
Manager Joe DeLegge said he
wants to see the process under
way sometime "early this sum-
mer," but it could take six months
from start to finish.
The question of annexation
has been a near-annual topic for
the airport, but year after year,
the city has decided the time was
not right.
But now, with the city poised
to relocate the electric depart-
ment to a freshly-purchased
industrial site on BMA grounds,
annexation is getting much more
serious consideration.
Current tenants at BMA will
be listening intently as the
details of the annexation are
worked out, especially with
regards to road maintenance,
emergency management, water


under legislation passed this
year.
Polk will pay an estimated $3.1
million.
County commissioners want
the pass along part of that cost to
Polk's municipalities.
The total cost to Florida's 67
counties is estimated at $90 mil-
lion or more.
This new obligation comes
without any direction from the
state on how to fund this new
responsibility.
"They provided us with no new
sources of revenue,"
Commissioner Paul Senft said.


and sewage rates and permitting.
"We (the city) are going to put
(the information) all together
because this is going to raise a lot
of questions and we want every-
body to feel comfortable.,"
DeLegge said.
He said the current tenants
would enjoy a 25 percent
decrease in water and sewage
rates, but that may or may not
offset city property taxes.
Also, who will "maintain the
roads remains up in the air, but
preliminary words from DeLegge
suggest it may not be the city.
"We'll treat (BMA) like it's an
entity, just like a development,"
DeLegge said at the meeting.
For Airport Manager Cynthia
Barrow, once any concerns ten-
ants may have are put to rest,
she said she will be excited about
having everything under one
roof. Currently, the responsibility
for issuing permits for BMA is
split up between the City of
Bartow and Polk County, slowing
down business and often creating
office confusion.
"I think for the most part, it
will be a benefit for both" the city
and the airport, she said.
In other business, the airport
authority elected new officers.
Rosie Thornberg was selected as
the new chairman. Pat Huff was
selected as vice-chairman, and
Brian Hinton was selected as the
new secretary.
Six-year airport authority vet-
eran Cal Adams also was hon-
ored at the meeting with a
plaque.
"I've always felt that this place
was a big part of my life and I
hope to continue to be involved in
whatever way I can," an emotion-
al Adams said.


"So here we go again. Staff has
provided me with information
that in the last three years the
state has shifted $116 million to
the county. That's money we could
have used for infrastructure or a
lot of other things.
"Somewhere along the way
this has got to stop.
"This is $3.1 million you will
have to put in the budget and we
will have to eat and pay for with
our limited sources of revenue."
Gary Hester of the Polk
County sheriff's office said the
assessment center provides a
valuable service to law enforce-


ment agencies as well as to
offenders.
Juvenile offenders are taken to
the center, located on U.S.
Highway 17, South, in Bartow,
and turned over to the DJJ. They
are booked, processed, and
screened for mental and physical
health problems.
The assessment center staff
makes a determination of
whether the offender should be
incarcerated or released to par-
ents or guardians.
Offenders can be held at the

More than 200 seniors said
goodbye to high school Thursday
night as Bartow High School held
its 112th commencement and
International Baccalaureate held
its seventh ceremony.
The event featured the BHS
Golden Voices and band providing
music, with speeches by three
valedictorians and one salutatori-
an.
IB Salutatorian Ravi Kamlesh
Patel was the first to take the
podium.
He discussed his personal jour-
ney from fear to comfort during
high school, and touched on Sept.
11, a day that affected so many.
"That dreadful day, fourth
period had started, as the televi-
sion was turned off after Channel
One, and we sat and waited for
Ms. Longworth to get back from
whatever errands she was run-
ning.
"Julia Tyson, a sophomore we
had seen around burst into class
yelling 'a plane crashed into the
World Trade Center.'
"We thought it must be an acci-
dent. Nothing that huge could
have happened on purpose."
Using high school as a model
for the larger world, Patel dis-
cussed the lessons learned during
those four years, which could be
applied to a lifetime.
"We haven't looked at each
other in a negative way because
of how we look, dress or even act.


The monthly water and sewer
bill for most Bartow households
will go up by $1.60 per month on
June 1.
Additional increases will take
place on Jan. 1 of each year
through 2010.
The $1.60 increase is for use of
up to 5,000 gallons of water per
month, which the city's rate con-
sultant said is the rate of con-
sumption for 95 percent of the
city's residents.
The annual increases are
intended to keep pace with infla-
tion and to insure adequate rev-
enues to pay off water and sewer
bond issues.
The June 1 increase is 4.18
percent, and next January's
increase will be 4.21 percent. For
the next four years, the increase
will be about 2 percent per year.
Rates for homes outside the
city limits are 25 percent higher
than for homes in Bartow.
Gerald Cochran spoke against
the higher rates at a public hear-
ing on the rate increase ordi-
nance. He said it will work a
hardship on people on fixed
incomes. He also said the city
shouldn't hire consultants for
rate studies.
Michael Goff told the commis-
sion that apartment houses are
paying too much. City Mgr.


Sometimes we get called names,
but it's all fun and games, noth-
ing derogatory," he said. 'We all
came from different backgrounds,
cultures, religions and even polit-
ical views, but we all respect each
other.
"We've learned in our micro-
cosm in Bartow. It's our turn to
take what we've learned and to go
out and teach. Everyone out there
is equal."
Barbara Lynn Guanella, one of
two BHS valedictorians, was next
to give an address.
Miss Guanella, who faced a
personal struggle before the year
began, had words of advice and
encouragement to seniors facing
the biggest change in their lives.
"Personally, I already know
how change can work. I have had
the misfortune of losing my moth-
er to breast cancer this past sum-
mer before our senior year, and
let me tell you, change can be
hard.
"But, change can also be good,
and in our case great. We will be
able to make new lives for our-
selves, in different cities, or even
in our own hometowns. We will
make new friends and take on
new responsibilities and for
some of us that means we will
actually have to start paying for
that cell phone bill that we run
the minutes over on every month.
"But that's okay, because we
can handle it. Our goal needs to
be, that when changes do come
along, we give them our best; and
to give them our best means that


Joseph J. DeLegge said each
apartment is charged the mini-
mum residential charge.

Litter Law Enforcement

Goff also told the commission
that litter is a constant problem
in Bartow. He said that South
Carolina posts signs warning of a
$1,000 fine for littering, and that
the state's roads are much clean-
er than Bartow's.
City Atty. George said
Bartow's city code has a penalty
of $500 plus six months in jail for
littering.
"The problem is catching
them," he said. He urged Goff to
notify him any time he can iden-
tify a litterer.
The commission also:
Passed on final reading ordi-
nances to:
(1) Annex .78 of an acre of
land that is part of the expansion
of Wildwood Cemetery.
(2) Rezone a 14-acre parcel of
land at. Clower Street and
County Road 555 from R-1 (sin-
gle family residential) to R-3
(apartments) and C-4 (neighbor-
hood commercial).
(3) Annex two acres of land on
Lyle Parkway, a half-mile west of
Maple Avenue, designate it f6r
low density residential develop-


even when we are doing some-
thing we do not want to do," she
said.
William Bradley Hiers, the
other BHS valedictorian followed.
"Last week I sat remembering
the past four years, and the
changing and maturing that we
have all undergone. I found
myself speechless, and yet, over-
come with the emotions and
memories that the members of
Bartow's Class of 2005 share
together.
"Memories of friendships,
laughter, inside jokes, .and
heartaches; memories of- late
nights, football games, tough
lessons and triumphs. Memories
of the four best years of our lives
that will live on forever in each
and every one of us.
"As I sat thinking about what
we have all endured, it made me
think of the apostle Paul. Paul
was a man who, in the course of
his life, went through an unimag-
inable amount of suffering and
torture.
"Despite his pain, however,
Paul still held his head high, and
still kept pressing on towards his
goal never taking his eyes off
his final destination. Toward the
end of his ministry Paul said, 'I
have fought the good fight, I have
finished the race, I have kept the
faith.'
"Paul had no regrets. To the
Class of 2005 I can say that we,

ment, and zone it R-1 with the
provision that only one house
could be built on the parcel. Sam
Thomas suggested to the com-
mission that the zoning should be
R-1-5A, the lowest density in the
city code.
(4) Approve the final plat of
the 91-lot Laurel Meadows Phase
2 Subdivision, and accept the
infrastructure for public mainte-
nance.
Gave preliminary approval to
zoning board recommendations
to:

Rural Estate Zoning

(1) Create Rural Estate 1 and
Rural Estate 2 zoning categories,
which would provide construc-
tion 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
north of Gandy Road. The site
contains a well that is no longer
used by the city.

2 The Polk County Democrat


Kelsey Harrell and her pure-
bred Arabian horse, Valintino
("Tino"), competed at the Canter-
bury May Days Qualifier in
Newberry, Fla., this month, and
brought home five blue ribbons.
The team also won high point
in the adult amateur/junior
young rider division. They com-
peted twice in training level test
four, and in competed in test 3,
2, and 1. Their percentage scores
were 75.77, 75.38, 72.69, 69.58,
and 65.55, which are average to
above average.
Most of the classes they com-
peted in had 10 to 16 entries, a
majority of them adult amateur
riders. In three of the classes,
Kelsey was the only junior young
rider.
Kelsey and Tino compete in
English dressage, and have been
a team for five years. There are
six levels of dressage: introduc-
tory level, training level, 1st,
2nd, 3rd, and 4th level. Each
level has four tests that the rider
and horse progress through on a
60 x 20 meter course.
Kelsey and Tino have com-
peted through the full levels of
introduction and training, and
are now working on 1st level.
As a junior young rider, Kel-
sey has to get a score of 60 per-
cent or better, and compete in
two recognized United States
Equestrian Federation shows to
be eligible for Region 3 All Breed
Championship Competition. Last
year, she acquired this and com-
peted at the Atlanta Horse Park
in Conyers, Ga., in training
level.
This year's all-breed champi-
onship will be held in Jackson-
ville.
Kelsey began taking an inter-
est in horses at the age of five,
when her parents would take her
by a small pasture in Bartow
and let her feed carrots and ap-
ples to the horses. She began rid-

tal to get an insider's view of the
democratic process," Putnam
said.

tunity for high school juniors to
visit the nation's capital to see
their federal government in ac-


tion and is run by the Young Pa-

A Florida circuit court judge
has enjoined the operators of a
massive computer email spam
operation, part of the state's first
legal action under Florida's nine-
month-old.Anti-Spam law, Attor-
ney General Charlie Crist an-
nounced.
The injunction, which the two
defendants agreed to, blocks the
men from engaging in any decep-
tive email or internet activities
while the lawsuit proceeds.
Crist filed the lawsuit against
two Tampa residents, accusing
them of running a bogus email
and internet operation responsi-
ble for more than 65,000 illegal
emails. The illegal messages
linked recipients to more than 75
different websites engaged in
fraudulent or illegal business ac-
tivities, including pharmaceuti-
cal and cigarette-sales and the il-
legal downloading of copyrighted
movies.
"(The) injunction accom-
plishes our immediate goal,
which is stopping this operation
in its tracks," Crist said. "Our
overall goal is to penalize and
shut down the purveyors of this
unwanted and illegal spam, and
this injunction is an important
first step."
The Attorney General's law-
suit, whichL was made possible
through the assistance of Micro-
soft Corporat'in, accuses Scott J.
Filary, 25, and Donald E. Town-
send; 34, of sending or assisting
the sending of more than 65,000
deceptive emails, including
48,000 since the Florida Elec-
tronic Mail Communications Act
took effect last July 1.
Filary and Townsend face
penalties of up to $500 per email
message under the state Anti-
Spam law, for a total potential
penalty of $24 million. The two

Benny Buscetta, a member of
the Holiday Rotary Club in
Pasco County, described two of
his club's community service pro-
jects to the Bartow Rotary Club.
SThrough its Ado:pt-.,-Student
program, the club provides fi-
nancial assistance to students in
need. Currently, it is helping
four boys.
Two of the boys are from a
family which was abandoned by
the father when the younger boy
was two months old. Their
mother died on Christmas Eve.
In addition to providing direct
financial assistance, the club is
providing legal assistance to get
the boys adopted by a relative,
and is trying to recover some of
the mother's assets that were
taken by the father, Buscetta
said.

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

Power of the Press Isn't Always for Good


When citizens and especially city offi-
cials ask county officials what city resi-
dents get for their county tax dollars, the
first two responses typically are emer-
gency medical service and jails.
The point is well taken, though there are
many other less conspicuous services pro-
vided by the county for municipal resi-
dents.
Many of the basic services of local gov-
ernment police and fire protection;
codes enforcement; water and sewer ser-
vice; sanitation are provided by cities
for their own residents.
But 100 percent of the cost of jails and
emergency medical service is paid by the
county.
With little discussion, the Polk County
commission took an ill-advised step away
from that commitment on Wednesday.
Faced with another unfunded mandate
from the state the requirement to
assume responsibility for $3.1 million in
funding for the Dept. of Juvenile Justice -
the commission decided to explore billing
cities for the cost of processing and incar-
cerating juvenile offenders booked by city
police departments. Juvenile detention
programs and facilities presently are pri-
marily a state responsibility.
Local government officials properly
complain about "unfunded mandates"
from the Legislature, requirements that
counties and cities take over expenses
from state government without a funding
source.
The complaints are well founded. The
Legislature has a bad habit of transferring
responsibility to local governments with-
out funding, or even a new tax source.
That is the case with the decision to pass
the DJJ funding responsibility to counties.


But the solution is not for the county
commission to pass along that injustice to
the cities.
What is at stake here is a question of
public policy: Who should pay the cost of
the operating Polk's correctional facilities?
At present, county taxes, with some
funding from DJJ, pay for corrections pro-
grams.
That is as it should be.
The county commission is right to take
exception to another unfunded mandate
from the state. Cities should join counties
in protesting unfunded mandates from the
Legislature.
But charging the cities for the corrections
function that historically has, been
assumed by the county only adds fuel to
the incorrect premise that city residents
don't get much for their county tax dollar.
The county commission should retain
the responsibility for operating detention
facilities.
It makes no more sense to charge cities
for incarcerating juvenile offenders
brought in by city police officers than it
would to charge the cities for county jail
inmates arrested by city police officers.

"have more power to do harm
than to do good.
That is not humility, or a guilt
trip. That is the simple truth.
Through carelessness let
alone malice the press can
damage reputations, inflame pas-
sions, mislead public sentiment.
The most powerful newspa-
per, the most skilled writer, can-
not create a cure for AIDS. But
through simple carelessness, mis-
handling of a story about AIDS
can create unintended chaos.
Some years ago, a friend of
mine in corporate public relations
(not in Polk County) called to tell
me that he had been approached
by the publisher of his local
newspaper about a rumor that a
prostitute with AIDS had been
patronized by a large number of
his company's employees. He
asked what he should do.
I suggested to him that he tell
the publisher (who also was a
friend of mine) to get a grip: that
stories like that make the rounds
from time to time, and an experi-
enced journalist should recognize
this sick joke for what it is.

Many Deserve Thanks For BHS Title


BARTOW When asked
about Bartow High School's
fourth consecutive state softball
title, Head Coach Glenn
Rutenbar responded, "I'm very
excited for the seniors who have
won four in a row. It's amazing
what they have accomplished in
four years with a record of 136
wins, five losses and one tie."
Even more importantly, "All
five seniors are going to college
with softball scholarships," the
coach boasted.
"I'm proud of the whole


team,"
As well he should be.
The rest of the Bug coaching
staff Bob Fitzgerald, Carl
Howell, Brent Orr and Steve
Beasley are all to be congratu-
lated, too. As much as the play-
ers, they are an important part of
the team effort that has raised
this program to the elite status it
enjoys.
As are the Boosters, the city of
Bartow, the school board, WWBF,
The Polk CountyDemocrat, the
players' parents, Ruth Little and


the ladies who run the conces-
sions stand, Paula Green and her
daughter, Christy Sprague.
And especially the fans.
And Unk. This season was his.
But, wait a minute. This season
is over ... the seniors have grad-
uated. What about the future,
Coach?
"I'm looking forward to next
year," Rutenbar added. "And a
so-called rebuilding year."
Play ball!

Education Fared Well in Legislature


BARTOW In the midst of
one of our busiest seasons, with
graduation events, FCAT scores
being released and other end-of-
year activities, one of the most
gratifying and important things I
will do is write this letter.
On behalf of our 86,000 stu-
dents and 11,000 employees, I
want to thank members of our
local legislative delegation for the
outstanding work they did dur-
ing the 2005 legislative session.


Their efforts in moving school
districts such as Polk in the right
direction toward educational
equity are to be celebrated. I hope
that every citizen of Polk County
will have an opportunity to con-
gratulate them for their success-
ful efforts to increase resources
for the betterment of all our stu-
dents.
I am fortunate to be superin-
tendent in a county whose leg-
islative delegation, understands


the critical need for increased
education funding. If Polk
County and Florida are to
achieve our goal of competing on
the national and international
stage, we must fund education on
a par with other states. Through
strong leadership and persever-
ance, our legislative delegation
members have taken a giant step
forward with the increased fund-
ing contained in this year's edu-
cation budget.


Please be assured that Polk
County will be a responsible
steward of the dollars we receive
and it will be used in ways that
will best benefit our students.
I appreciate the opportunity to
work with these elected officials
as we collectively strive toward
reaching the goal of bringing
Polk County to the highest levels
in education.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

The Ladies in the Red Hats


-*

A mm


I was in the grocery store yes-
terday afternoon getting odds
and ends and wearing my purple
sweat pants and matching shirt.
I was stocking up on tooth-
paste, wrinkle cream and dog
food when a lady came up to me
and asked if I belonged to the
ladies in the red hats. I thought it
over for a minute and had to tell
her I didn't. I was puzzled that
she asked me.
She said, "I thought maybe
you were because of your purple
outfit, and thought maybe you
had just left your hat at home."
She went on to explain that she
was a member and they were
recruiting new ones for their
chapter. This nudged my brain,


which was looking for shampoo,
and I remembered seeing some-
thing about the ladies in the red
hats.
She gave me her name, Jackie
Williams, and her phone number.
I asked her what the ladies in the
red hats did.
"Absolutely nothing except
have fun."
She told me, some of the things
they had done lately and while
some of them didn't appeal to me
- going out to the stadium for a
Braves game going to dinner
at Petite Auberge did. When they
went out to enjoy themselves,
they always wore their red hats
and purple outfits.
On the way home, I thought it


over and decided to go to the
mall and see if they had any red
hats and purple outfits. I haven't
had a red hat in years and the
only thing I owned that was pur-
ple was my jogging suit, which I
wouldn't have ever worn to the
Petite Auberge.
I saw this beautiful red straw
hat with a silk flower on the brim
and was absolutely thrilled to
find it. It was the perfect hat to
have fun in.
Then I found a pretty print suit
that was black with small purple
tear drops all over it and I bought
a purple blouse-to wear with it.
I went home and called Jackie
and told her I was ready to join
and had already bought the per-


fect outfit. I asked her what the
requirements were to join the
club. She told me there was really
only one you had to be over 50.
I passed that with flying colors.
I really like the idea of just
having fun with the girls. I called
my sister to tell her about it and
was told that she was out of town
with her friends in the red hats.
They were staying at a condo
near Dollywood and having a
marvelous time.
I really like the idea of a club
with no officers, no responsibili-
ties, no rummage sales and no
bake sales. Whoopee!


(There's another version of the
same story: that someone with
AIDS is working at this or that
restaurant, and the police won't
let the restaurant fire the employ-
ee. That story is absurd on the
face of it the police cannot
make an' employer hire or fire
anybody but the story was
presented to me some years ago
by someone who believed it.)
Fortunately, most journalists
are leery about such stories, and
for every one that gets into print,
a thousand are ignored for the
absurdities that they are.
But every now and then, such
a story gets picked up as truth,
and the results can be disastrous.
Such was the case with a brief
story in Newsweek which report-
ed that interrogators at the
Guantanamo Bay prison camp
were desecrating copies of the
Koran, the holy writ of the
Muslim faith. It said that a copy
of the Koran was flushed down
the toilet as a way to shake up
detainees.
I have never heard of desecra-
tion of the Bible in this country,
whether for purposes of political
or religious protest or as a means
to terrorize Christians. I suspect
any such action would be greeted
with a response similar to flag-
burning: it is an objectionable,
perhaps reprehensible, gesture,
but in the final analysis, it is a


gesture. An appropriate response
is a crude, universally recognized
gesture in return.
Thie flag is not America, and
the Bible is not God.
To Muslims, however, the
Koran itself is holy, and insults to
it or to Muhammad are consid-
ered acts of blasphemy punish-
able by death.
In response to Newsweek's
report, anti-American demon-
strations erupted in Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Indonesia and other
countries, and more than 15 peo-
ple were killed. Pakistan, where
most of the deaths occurred, is a
key American ally in a part of the
world where we have too few
allies. The nation's leaders
demanded an investigation into
reports of desecration of the
Koran.
It would have been bad
enough if American interrogators
at Guantanamo really had used a
sacred icon of the Muslim faith so
crudely as a tool to further their
interrogation.
But Newsweek acknowledged
that it wasn't sure its report was
correct, and finally issued a
retraction. Its lone, unnamed
source said he wasn't sure of the
accuracy of his statement.
"We regret that we got any
part of our story wrong," the
magazine said, "and extend our
sympathies, to victims of the vio-

lence and to the U.S. soldiers
caught in its midst."
There was great angst in the
White House, excoriating
Newsweek for its mistake. (To
keep things in perspective, let us
not forget that more than 1,600
Americans have died in a war
based on a far more significant
White House gaffe about the exis-
tence of weapons of mass
destruction in Iraq.)
There is nothing to suggest
that Newsweek's blunder was
anything but an honest mistake.
Perhaps the magazine's manage-
ment didn't realize what an
affront such conduct would be to
the Muslim faith.
In all likelihood, the magazine
had no idea that the report -
accurate or not would prompt
such a violent reaction.
It seemed like such a simple
mistake.
There is nothing that
Newsweek magazine can do to
make Pakistan a stronger ally, or
to make America's war effort in
Afghanistan more successful.
But through simple journalis-
tic carelessness, it has done a
great deal of harm in both areas.
Yes, the press has a great deal
of power.
Unfortunately, it is not always
the power for good.

'New Face' at Union


Actually an Old Pro


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

Now that the school year is
winding down, teachers and ad-
ministrators across the county
can begin to plan for the fall. For
many, that means new faces to
teach and sometimes work with.
Union Academy in Bartow
will be seeing a "new face" in the
fall when career administrator
Dr. Steve Petrie transfers over
from Sleepy Hill Middle School.
He will take over as principal for
Dr. Flora Haire, who is retiring
after serving the school since
1992, when it became a magnet
school.
Dr. Petrie will seem new to
the current staff at Union Acad-
emy but he is the furthest thing
from a stranger. With integra-
tion less than a decade old, Dr.
Petrie landed his first adminis-
trative job as an assistant princi-
pal at UA in 1978. He worked
there for six years before trans-
ferring to another school in Bar-
tow.
Dr. Petrie served as the prin-
cipal of Bartow Junior High for
four years before moving east as
principal of Mulberry High
School from 1988 to, 1996.
For the next seven years, Dr.
Petrie held the now dissolved po-
sition of area assistant superin-
tendent in Polk County. Since
then, he has been working at
Sleepy Hill and is excited to get
back to Bartow.
"The school has an outstand-
ing reputation and I had a great
experience during my 10 years
in Bartow," said Dr. Petrie.
After nearly 40 years of hop-
ping from place to place in Polk
County, Dr. Petrie said he is able
to find a place wherever he is,

a quarter century ago, most no-
tably the conversion to sixth
through eighth grade magnet
status. Dr. Petrie hasn't had too
much of a chance to experience
the differences first hand, but
has been to several training ses-
sions hosted at the school.
He will have big shoes to fill
as Dr. Haire was instrumental
in establishing the school in its
current incarnation and was well
received by the faculty. The
school also has enjoyed a consis-
tent "A" rating, along with one of
the better FCAT averages in the
county.
While the task is tough, Dr.
Petrie hopes to win over staff,
parents, students and teachers,
by being accessible and making
honest, personal connections
with them. Making friends
shouldn't be too hard for Dr.
Petrie he's done it all over the
area and has a "children first"
philosophy toward teaching that
he said has served him well for
27 years.
"I believe whenever we focus
on what's best for students, the
decisions become clear on what
to do," he said.
Right now, however, the fu-
ture isn't on Dr. Petrie's mind.
He is worried about finishing up
the school year at Sleepy Hill as
smoothly as possible.
"We're trying to continue with
each day as a day of learning as
we go on. Even though its the
last week of school, there's still
so much that needs to be taken
care of."

Attorney General Charlie
Crist has announced a civil law-
suit against a California com-
pany and its owner under Flori-
da's Deceptive and Unfair Trade
Practices Act for attempting to
defraud thousands of Floridians.
The Corporate Compliance
Center (CCC) solicited Florida
corporations across the state im-
plying the business had to sub-
mit a $100 fee and file their cor-
porate minutes with the state,
and that directors and owners
could be personally liable for
sums in excess of their stock if
they failed to keep these min-
utes.
An investigation launched by
the Attorney General's office in
March revealed that CCC mailed
out an "Annual Minutes Compli-
ance Notice" to businesses
throughout the United States,
including Florida. The solicita-
tion looks similar to the Florida

businesses were required to pay
the fee to create minutes of cor-
porate meetings in order to avoid
official late fees.
"Those behind this outfit
claimed they were from the gov-
ernment and here to help they
were lying on both accounts,"
said Crist.
The investigation was in re-
sponse to a request from the Sec-
retary of State's office after that
office received numerous tele-
phone calls about the notice.
According to complaints re-
ceived, several recipients of
CCC's solicitation believed it was
a legitimate requirement. In this
case, the address provided for
the Corporate Compliance Cen-
ter was 400 Capital Circle, Suite

To Participate
In Seminar

Florida Humanities Council
has announced that three teach-
ers from Polk County have been
selected from a statewide pool of
applicants to participate in the
Florida Center for Teachers 2005
summer program.
The teachers selected form
Polk County are Nancy Kor-
mann (All Saint's High School),
Rachel McCall (Stambugh Mid-
dle School) and Matthew Town-
ley (George Jenkins High
School).
Selected teachers will attend
a week-long seminar designed to
recognize and reward Florida's
best teachers. Selection was
based on two criteria: passion for
learning and commitment to ex-
cellence in teaching.
Although the Florida Center
for Teachers is open to teachers
of all grade levels and subject ar-
eas, the program is not designed
for all teachers. It is geared to
recognize those career profes-
sionals who year after year,
make a positive difference in
children's lives and to address
the critical need for retaining
Florida's best teachers.
Each professional develop-
ment seminar is designed to in-
spire intellectual curiosity and
provide professional rejuvena-
tion by giving teachers the time
and resources to pursue the rea-
sons why they entered into
teaching in the beginning.
All expenses are paid and
each seminar is limited to 25
teachers. Participants choose
from a range of topics including
Asian religions in Florida, La-
tino issues, media ethics, sense
of place and the Harlem Renais-
sance. Each seminar is led by a
scholar who is an expert in the
field of study.
Funded by individual and cor-
porate donors, including educa-
tion foundations, the program is
designed to educate teachers in
the field of humanities. Partici-
pants may apply for in-service
credit, and all seminars are
aligned with the Sunshine State
Standards.
The Florida Center for Teach-
ers is a program of the Central
Florida Humanities Council.
For more information, contact
Ann Simas Schoenacher at the
Florida Humanities Council at

Before the assessment center
was established, officers typically
were tied up for an hour or two
each time they arrested a juve-
nile offender, and they had the
job of taking the offender home if
incarceration were not required.
Now, officers deliver juveniles
to the assessment center and
return to their regular duties.
The state began providing and
funding juvenile justice services
more than two decades ago, but
has now decided to continue to
provide services, but not funding.
Senft said some counties are
looking at providing the services
themselves or cutting back juve-

Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said Polk County is unlikely to
cut back on services, especially
after a survey found the citizens
believe public safety is the most
important service the county pro-
vides.
"We just saw a survey this
morning stating people want fire,
EMS and law enforcement ser-
vices," he said. "I think we would
be remiss to cut back."
Currently, the Polk assess-
ment center provides booking,
screening and assessment ser-
vices for juvenile offenders. State
law mandates that juveniles can-
not be booked or held in sight or

Funding for the center comes
from two state agencies the

But that may change.
In voting to renew the
$150,000 appropriation for the
assessment center, commission
ers said they want to explore the
possibility of charging cities for
their proportional use of the cen
ter.
"We need to break the funding
down to a per child charge and
bill the cities," Myers said. "If a
child comes from the county, we'll
pay for it. That's what the state is
doing."
The allocation for the assess-
ment center is in addition to the

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
THIS 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
mailer, 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 lime period. The Court further
Ilound 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-
tinately, the high court held, Knva-
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.
1 his 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
anr 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. Theo
Court retains jurisdiction to deter-
aine, if necessary, any entitlement
to attorney's fees and taxable
costs.
,DONE AND ORDERED this
10th day of May, 2005.2.

Departing Seniors Leaving Big Holes

For Four Time Defending State Champs


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
Now that Bartow has matched'
the current record of consecutive
state titles in a row with four, the
.goal next season will be to sur-
pass Naples' record set between
1993 and 1996 that included a
victory over Bartow in 1994.
The task will be a daunting
one and with five key seniors
leaving, Coach Glenn Rutenbar
will need some younger talent
from the junior varsity squad to
rise to the call.
"Look at the players we lost, I
mean come on, you just don't
replace five players like that.
Look at what they did today (in
the state final). They, all con-
tributed."
The most glaring loss is pitch-
er Lindsay Littlejohn, who got the
victory on the mound in, each of
the last four state championship


games. She departs for the
University of Florida with only
eight earned runs scored on her
in her entire high school career.
The tandem of shortstop Britta
Giddens and second baseman
Staci Fernandez will be just as
difficult to replace. The two had
teamed up all four years as one of
the best double play duos in the
state.
Pitcher Jerrica Sanchez would
have been a number one pitcher
on any other team in the state
and is another big blow to the
Lady Jacket rotation.
Catcher Jenna Allen had only
earned her position this season
with the departure of Sanchez's
sister Jessica last season. Any
remaining doubters of Allen's
ability were quieted in the state
final when she easily threw out
Pembroke 'Pines' fastest runner,
Shayla Jackson, twice in the
game.


"The thing is we're losing so
much. We're already hearing the
talk that we'll be terrible and we
won't win."
But that kind of talk is nothing
new for the 19-year coach who
has been with the program since
its inception in 1987.
"I've hear that kind of talk
every year that our great pitching
leaves.
"And you know, that might be
true," he said before adding, "but
I don't think so."
Rutenbar said the Ladyjackets
will continue to work hard on the
practice field three hours every
day as well as playing competi-
tive travel ball over the summer.
He also uses each state final
four appearance as motivation for
the younger players.
"We tell the kids every time
they get on the field that they
need to think about getting back
here (state finals)."
This year, the Lady Jackets
brought' with them a''hoSt of
junior varsity players and. main-
tained two freshmen and a sopho-
more on the regular roster.
Freshman Brittany Rowlette
has already impressed coaches
with her presence at the plate
and will be vying for the newly


.. vacated catching position next
lo oWk season. Freshman pitcher
'ORO Candace Howell showed hers tuff
S this season, striking out 26 bat-
ters in 20 innings of work.
It's never an easy task to
repeat as a champion, but
Bartow's track record has made it
look easy. Next' season will be one
of the toughest Io',r the Lady
Jackets to recover from in recent
'- years, but With a strong junior

coaches -aid they felt the mound was too far back. After a quick mea- travel ball schedule andRutenbar
surement, the rubber was found to be six feet further than the regu- and the rest of the coaching staff
lation distance. First and third base also had to moved back accord- at the helm, the outlook can't be
ingly. that bad.


IN FRONT OF THEIR PRIZE, the state champion Lady Jackets lined for the fourth year in a
row, up eager to put on a gold medal and hoist the championship trophy.

Florida Southern College's
Paul Ryan had five RBIs.and
capped a five-run third inning
with a grand slam to lead the
second ranked FSC Moccasins to
a 10-7 win over ninth ranked
Tampa and the NCAA Division
II South-Region championship
on Friday.
The Moccasins (46-10) had
taken a 1-0 lead in the top of the
second on an RBI double by Matt
Joyce before sending 11 runners
to the plate in the third when
they scored five runs.
The Mocs had seven straight
batters reach base with one out,
starting withMatt Mercurio who
was hit by a pitch. Fred Popp fol-
lowed with the first of his four
hits in the game and Jeff Howell
knocked in Mercurio with an
RBI single.
After Joyce singled again to
load the bases, Ryan launched a
pitch over the left centerfield
fence for his fifth home run of
the season.
The Spartans (40-18) fought


back though and eventually
pulled within 7-6 after a five-run
inning of the their own in the
bottom of the sixth.
Earning the win for Florida
Southern was closer Kyle De-
Young, who improved to 7-1 with
an outstanding four-inning stint
out of the bullpen.
Florida Southern had a total
of 18 hits in the game, led by
Popp's four. Howell went three-
for-three with a walk and a hit-
by-pitch while Ryan was three-
for-five. Joyce, Calderone and
Geoff Strickland all had two hits.
The regional title is the 20th
for Florida Southern which ad-
vances to the Division II Na-
tional Championship Tourna-
ment in Montgomery, Ala. The
Moccasins will play top-ranked
Central Missouri State in the
first round on Saturday in their
quest for a record ninth Division
II national title.


Four years ago.
After the Bartow High School
Lady Jackets won the 2002
FHSAA State Softball
Championship game, Lindsay
Littlejohn, then a talented fresh-
man pitcher, made a brash state-
ment to the local media.
Littlejohn said her goal was to
not only pitch in four straight
state softball championships, as
had Melissa Parsons previously
for BHS, but to win all four years.
The local reaction?
"It has never been done!"
"It couldn't happen!"
"There are so many obstacles
to even reaching the Final Four!"
Littlejohn's response?
"Never say never. Nothing is
impossible. Obstacles are made to
be overcome."
Ladies and gentlemen, meet
the winners of their fourth
straight FHSAA. Class 4A State
Championship Title: Your 2005
Bartow High School Lady
Jackets!
With the win, the final season
record for BHS stands at 30-2.
While Littlejohn has been a
major factor in each and every
state game, make no doubt'about
it, each one has been a team vic-
tory.
This year was no different, as
the Bugs entered the season with
a batting line-up that lacked a bit
of the power of the previous sea-
son. But with the defensive unit,
The Great Wall of Bartow, in the
field, there was virtually no one to
stop them.
Asterisks can be placed on the
two losses suffered this season, as
both times, several key players
were absent from their normal
positions. So ~,-- rntir;-',,. when
everyb.dv :..a h..ilrly, the Bugs
were undel.t..-,i thi- season.
This year, as in the four years
past, the Final Four t., 1.1 n i11i1 it,
was played inexplicably at the
"lovely" Ed Radice Sports
Complex in Tampa As an editori-
al aside, they' need to rename the
place, the Ed Radice and the
Clueless Crew Complex.


In 'the FHSAA State
Championship semifinal played
on Thursday at high noon against
the Cocoa High School Wildcats,
Littlejohn walked the first batter
she faced. That should have been
a clue to someone, right there.
Littlejohn quickly made up for
it by striking out the next three
batters, but when she returned to
her dugout she complained to the
coaches that the pitching rubber
was too far back.
In the next inning the officials
checked and Oops! What do you
know? It WAS too far back... by
a mere six feet!
Upon further review, the third
and second bases also were mis-
aligned... on two separate fields.
This from a complex that has
hosted the premier FHSAA soft-
ball event for the past four years.
Later, when phoned for any
game comments he might want to
make after the semifinal game,
the first words out of the mouth of
head coach Glenn Rutenbar were,
"What did they say on the radio
about the field situation?"
Thirty minutes later, the
action resumed and Littlejohn
was nearly flawless, striking out
17 batters in the ball game, and
walking just one in another no-
hitter for the Throwin' Bartowan
as BHS cruised to a 5-0 pasting of
the Cocoa Wildcats.
Littlejohn also helped herself
in grand fashion at the plate,
crushing her first career home
run as a Lady Jacket, a two-run
shot over the centerfield fence.
Later, she added another RBI
to her total as she just missed
another homer with a double bag-
ger off the fence.
Jerrica Sanchez, left fielder
and back-up pitcher, was three for
three at the plate, including a
double and an RBI. Other Bug
base hitters were Kara Rutenbar,
Elizabeth Howell, Mallory Butler,
Rachael Jackson and Whitney
Little.
In the state championship
game played Friday night,
Littlejohn relied more on her
defensive teammates to nail down
a 2-0 shut- ut against the


GOING OUT ON TOP, senior pitcher Lindsay Littlejohn went the
distance in the Lady Jackets' two final-four wins. Littlejohn had a no-
hitter on Thursday against Cocoa before shutting out Pembroke Pines
in the state final for the second year in a row. Against Cocoa on
Thursday, Littlejohn hit a two run home run, the first of her high
school career. (StoF~--- L ".. n.--..

Pembroke Pines Charter Jaguars.
Littlejohn fanned five Jags at the
plate, walked two and allowed
two hits.
On offense for Bartow,
Littlejohn hit another RBI double
and Elizabeth Howell also racked
an RBI with a single. Britta
Giddens and Staci Fernandez
also had base hits for.the Bugs.
Howell was robbed of a home
run in the game when Pembroke's
Hailey Frost reached over the
fence to haul in .a long bomb off
the Bugs' bat.
On defense, Howell stood out
for her play at third, while right
fielder Kara Rutenbar did a great
job reeling in two line drives to


rrNc`rc" ', rr"r


right.
Jenna Alien, senior catcher for
the Yellow Jackets, nailed PPC's
speedster, Shayla Jackson, twice
as she tried to steal second base.
Rutenbar beams when he talks
about Allen.
"Jenna did an awesome job for
us behind the plate. She is a true
success story. She started out
playing her first two years on JV,
then came in to pinch run for us
last year. This year, after we lost
our catcher, Jessica Sanchez, to
graduation, Jenna stepped in and
did an outstanding, job commit-
ting zero errors," explained
Rutenbar.
