Lots of Polk Schools Passing, I '


Mostly at Elementary Level
9f 9/ '~~~-.^jS .-' .^ ^ I ^e~tui^ ^ ^l ff~i!


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

An unforgettable hurricane
season and a tightening of the
way school grades are calculated
under the A+ grading system did
not result in much of an adjust-
ment in Polk's results. With the
.release of the 2005 school grades
-on Wednesday afternoon, Polk's
elementary school test grades
continue to rank high while mid-
dle and high schools still lag
behind
"With the way they calculate
the test, scores these days, it's
very difficult to score above a C,"
said Dr. Gail McKinzie, Polk
school superintendent. "Some
schools did very well, but there
.,were some schools with D's last
:year that worked very hard to get
*off of that list that fell just short."
: As if hurricanes were not
:enough, this year the state board
-of education raised the passing
-score in writing by half of a point
:and, for the first time, included
:scores from students with disabil-
:-ities and limited English profi-
:cient students.
: In Polk, the new requirements


didn't have too much of an effect,
at least score-wise. Taking the
addition of seven new graded
schools into consideration, eight
more schools scored A's than in
2004, while six more schools
scored D's or F's.
Of the 115 graded schools in
Polk, 89 percent (103) scored
passing grades of C or higher, a
small decrease from last year (92
percent). Overall, there were 42
As, 22 B's, 36 C's, 9 D's and 6 F's
this year, compared to 36 A's, 27
B's, 36 C's, five D's and four F's in
2004.
"We did see quite a bit of suc-
cess in elementary schools," Dr.
Mckinzie said. She attributed the
success with grade school stu-
dents to "a concerted effort" in
refining elementary curriculum in
the areas of reading and writing.
Some of the success, she said, is
due to new programs begun with-
in the past three years, such as
reading labs set up at schools for
the Read 180 program and the
addition of reading coaches to
some schools.
Despite the success Polk ele-
mentary students have had with
FCAT testing, middle and high


school scores have been consis-
tently lower. This year, the 21
middle schools in Polk received
six A's, one B, 13 C's, one D and no
F's. High schools fared no better
with three As, one B, seven C's,
three D's and three F's.
Combination schools failed to
score an A, but made six B's, one
C, one D and three F's.
The success at the elementary
level, Dr. McKinzie said, has not
carried over into the upper levels,
prompting action next semester
with help from the Florida
Department of education.
"We need to examine what we
do in middle schools as far as cir-
ruculum goes. We will be getting
directions from the DOE and be
reforming at the middle school
level."
School grades are used as the
main component for the state to
judge school standards and learn-
ing gains, but Dr. McKinzie said
that schools are made up of much
more than just one test score.
"With any test, anything can
happen on any given day," she
said. "You have to remember that
there are so many factors that go
into a successful school atten-


dance, is it an enjoyable place, is
it a safe place?"
While parents may be con-
cerned by a low school grade at
their child's school, Dr. McKinzie
warned against moving children
around with examining the situa-
tion fully.
"There's other things to go on
than test scores. You have to look
at it from your child's perspec-
tive," she said.
"(A poor school grade) doesn't
mean that everyone is getting Ds
and not learning."
Dr. McKinzie said parents
should look at whether or not
their child is "gaining knowledge
and skill" and if the school experi-
ence is a good one, which should
include enjoyment in class,
friendship, extra cirricular oppor-
tunity.
"A lot of things go into the total
school experience," she said.
"Parents need to ask, 'What is
school doing for my child?' "

Downtown Fire Caused By


Electrical Fault In Light


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Ani electrical fault has been
blamed for the estimated $10
million fire on East Main Street a
week ago today.
State:Fire Marshal Lt. Kevin
Shireman said investigators
traced the fire's origin to one of
four fluorescent light fixtures in
a ..storage room on the second
floor of ..the Jerue
Trucking/Gateway Insurance
building on the northwest. corner
of Wilsorii: Avenue and Main
Street. *.:
...One of the four fixtures, which
have ballasts, had heavy damage
that the others did not,Shireman
said.:Some firing above the ceil-
ing in the storage room also may
be involved: .
The insurance. company is
bringing in electrical engineers


to "dissect" each light and the
wiring.
No accelerants were found and
the building was secure. It "defi-
nitely was not arson," Shireman
said.
The storage room contained
wood and paper, which along
with cloth, are considered Class
A ordinary combustible materi-
als.
A female employee who was
the first to arrive at work
Monday morning, June 6,
smelled smoke when she opened
the door and called the Bartow
Fire Department. Firefighters
were unable to check the fire,
which spread to the building next
door, home of Bartow Consulting
Group. A third building in the
block was saved by firefighters
and a three-foot gap between the
buildings.
Structural engineers have
said the second floors of both


buildings are unstable. S h i re nan
said. Main Street a;rid \'i.-.rn
Avenue are still closed for safety
reasons. Vibrations from traffic
could cause a wall to collapse,
and recent rains could saturate
the floor enough to cause it to
fall, as well.
The floors were shored up to
allow fire investigators safer
access, he said.
Damage, including the con-
tents, was estimated at $10 mil-
lion, Shireman said.
While vehicles are not allowed
on East Main Street from
Broadway to Florida Avenue,
pedestrians still have access to
restaurants and shops down-
town. Merchants have been hit
by a double whammy besides
the fire, construction on the
streetscaping had already tem-
porarily eliminated parking on
Main Street.


Bartow

Commission

Meeting

Time
Unchanged

Bartow city commissioners
Monday night voted against
the ordinance that would
change their regular meeting
time to 5:30 p.m.
The commissioners will
instead consider changing
their work session time from 5
to 5:30 p.m., and keep their
regular business meeting
time of 6:30.
The original proposal was
to merge the two meetings,
making the work session a
part of the regular business
meeting agenda.
The purpose of the change
is to eliminate slack time that
sometimes occurs between
their 5 o'clock work sessions
and their regular business
meetings.

the physical demands of real-life
firefighting by performing series
of tasks, including climbing a


five-story tower, hoisting, chop-
ping, dragging hoses, and rescu-
ing a life-sized, 175-pound "vic-
tim" in a race against their oppo-
nent and the clock.
Adams ripped a hamstring
halfway through the competition,
but continued on to qualify for the
World Championship, to be held
in November.

Polk County Seeks Pet
Friendly Hurricane Shelter


TOP SALESMEN in Bartow Elementary
Academy's spring fundraising event were ferried
to Sonic for lunch in a limousine. Those riding in
style were BEA Principal Carol Borders,
Cathrine Pfeiffer, Jenna Eubanks, Victoria Tay-


lor, Zachary Cochran, Jomiza Elizee, Aaron Tol-
ley and Robin Land, who acted as chauffeur.
Whidden-McLean and Land provided the limo for
the children. (Photo provided)


Polk County Emergency Man-
agement Division is seeking as-
sistance from the community in
locating a facility that could be
used as a pet friendly shelter in
the event that another hurricane
threatens Polk County.
A pet friendly shelter is in-
tended to house both humans
and pets. Residents can bring
pets to the shelter and remain
with them during dangerous
times. ,
Pets will be kept in an ap-
proved pet carrier during the
shelter stay.
To date, the county staff
members have reviewed several


options for a pet friendly shelter
location and have been unable to
find a facility.
Facility requirements include
a building of at least 10,000
square feet of open floor space
that is, or could be, divided into
two separate housing areas. One
area would be for humans the
other for pets.
Additionally, the facility must
meet current building code re-
quirements, have bathroom fa-
cilities and ample parking
spaces.
For more information on the
needs or to offer a suggestion,
call 534-5600.


Since meeting the goals of the
national No Child Left Behind
(NCLB) plan, Florida has be-
come the first state in the nation
to be granted two NCLB amend-
ments, giving the state addi-
tional flexibility in calculating
the educational progress of Flor-
ida students.
On April 7 in Mount Vernon,
U.S. Secretary of Education
Margaret Spellings challenged
states to demonstrate that they
meet the four core principles of
NCLB. In exchange, the U.S. De-
partment of Education (USDOE)
would embark on a partnership
with these states to provide flexi-
bility while learning how to
make th-. laindmarl federal law
more effc t iv\e.
"I'm thrilled -thot the USDOE
is recognizing that';.:ur state is a
leader in measuring student
achievement," said Governor Jeb
Bush.
Florida is the first state to
meet this challenge, providing
Secretary Spellings with a com-

prehensive account of learning.

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

Key West: A City Like No Other


Editorial










Listen To States


On Oil Drilling


Mel Martinez, Florida's junior United
States senator, makes a much better
impression in person than he does in the
press.
Rosemary Goudreau, editorial page edi-
tor of The Tampa Tribune, said as much in
a Q and A last week when Martinez spoke
to the state's newspaper editors, and pub-
lishers at the Florida Press Assn. conven-
tion.
Martinez's campaign is best remem-
Bered for a homophobic press release in
the closing days of the campaign; his
record in Congress thus far is best known
for a memo saying that the Terry Schiavo
episode could be used as political fodder
against Sen. Bill Nelson in his campaign
for re-election next year.
Martinez declared that neither accurate-
ly reflected his position, blaming both on
overzealous staff members while acknowl-
edging that he could not sidestep the
responsibility for the gaffes. He repeated
that acknowledgment at the FPA conven-
tion, and asked to be judged on his total
performance as a senator, not just on those
two fiascoes.
One of his major projects has been draft-
ing and amending a bipartisan energy bill.
It focuses on three areas, he said:
Increased production.
Conservation.
e Alternative sources.
That's not exactly rocket science. As
always, the devil is in the details.
SOne element of the bill, as it now stands,
calls for an inventory of offshore oil
reserves beneath the Gulf of Mexico off the
coast of Florida.
While the bill only calls for an inventory,
it's .easy to see what happens next,
Martinez observed. Find it today, drill it
tomorrow.
Reflecting the sentiment of- Florida's
political leadership and, we suspect, the
vast majority of Floridians, Martinez
opposes offshore drilling.
Louisiana and Texas, which are not the
tourist destinations that Florida's beaches
are, support drilling off their own shores,
he said,! .: :-
If the energy bill goes to a vote with the


Florida exploration provision intact,
.Martinez said, he probably will vote
against it.
Asked how he could vote for drilling in
the Alaskan National Wildlife Reserve and
oppose drilling off the shore of Florida,
Martinez said that both of Alaska's sena-
tors, as well as the majority of the citizens
of America's northernmost state, support
drilling.
He hopes, in fact, to enlist the support of
the two Alaskan colleagues in opposing
the offshore inventory in the Florida gulf
coast.
A state's wishes should be given great
weight in these decisions, he said.
It is this kind of common sense thinking
that makes Mel Martinez sound better in
person than he looks in the press.
We don't agree with his position that a
comprehensive energy bill should be
defeated if it calls for an inventory of off-
shore oil reserves. One of our management
philosophies is that nobody ever did a
poorer job because they had too much
information.
The time to fight offshore drilling is
when it is proposed, not when an invento-
ry of reserves is proposed.
But the basic premise of Mel Martinez is
correct:
The preferences of a state should be
given great weight in matters of oil explo-
ration and drilling.
Alaska, Louisiana and Alabama want it;
Florida does not.
Those wishes should be honored.

BARTOW Talk about shock
and awe! What in the world is
happening on the old Winter
Haven Road? : Has anyone
stopped to think, How are all
those people going to fit on that
narrow .twro-laite oad? Better
yet, hoiv are several hundred
folks going to all get out of the
entrance. of that complex at the
same time? With all the traffic
presently on that' road 'and the
two new-Ydevelopments just north
of there, it will be a nightmare.
I just know the city has had the


foresight to require the developer
to pay for four-laning the road to
U.S. Highway.98 and putting in a
traffic light at the entrance to the
complex.
Who in their right mind
agreed to let this happen without
the developer upgrading the
infrastructure necessary to sup-
port it? And I hope the code
required and the inspectors are
insuring that a sprinkler system
is installed throughout all the
buildings.
I know it is too late now but


we have got to get development
under control. If it takes a new
city manager, so be it. We do not
need to raise city income by reck-
lessly allowing sprawl and over-
crowding just to get new cus-
tomers.
The city commission needs to
take the reins and stop this crazy
attitude of unbridled develop-
ment. The county has enough
crazies running it, don't do the
same thing in Bartow.

OUR READERS SAY

Replace Water Lines Now


BARTOW In the paper it
states .our Main Street water
pipes are old and probably need
replacing. Is the city going to
replace them now, while Main


Street is dug up, or let it be
paved, then dig it up later to lay
new pipes?
Good, clean water pipes
should be a priority. Other things


such as parks and even the
library could wait awhile.
Please get started on what is
most important to all of us.

Key West is a little like St.
Augustine.
A little like Savannah.
A little like Charleston.
And a little like New Orleans.
But mainly, it is exactly like
Key West, which is unlike any-
where else.
Mary and I spent last week in
America's southernmost city,
four days on vacation, three days
at a Florida Press Assn. conven-
tion.
Two decades ago, Key West
declared itself to be the Conch
Republic, declaring its secession
from the Union and asking for
federal aid as a third world coun-
try. It didn't take, but the Conch
Republic name remains.
Key West's Oldtown area is
much like the restored areas of
the other cities mentioned. It is an
eclectic blend of art museums
and jewelry stores next door to
tacky T-shirt shops and redneck
bars.
In the latter category are
Sloppy Joe's, which was Ernest


Hemingway's favorite hang-out,
and Jimmy Buffet's
Margaritaville Restaurant and
Bar. (Yep, we each had a margari-
ta and shared a Cheeseburger in
Paradise.)
Each place has its adjoining
gift shop.
Most of the locals and many of
the tourists travel the streets on
small but peppy motor scooters;
more about that in another col-
umn.
There are two hop-on, hop-off
transportation systems, and the
Conch Train, a leisurely narrated
tour of Oldtown.
Package deals combine vari-
ous transportation options with
admission to some of the favorite
tourist attractions. The latter
range from the Truman White
House and Ernest Hemingway's
home to shipwreck museums and
a Ripley's museum.
Our big side trip was to Fort
Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas, a
45-minute seaplane ride (or two
hours by high speed catamaran,


but you have to be at the .dock at
7 a.m., which is not our idea of a
vacation).
Included in the price of trans-
portation, are a pair of swim fins
and a swim mask with snorkel
tube for exploring the shallows
around Fort Jefferson.
It may be possible to get a bad
seafood meal in Key West, but
most of the restaurants we tried
serve unforgettable fare.
Our selections ranged from the
A&B Lobster House (Alonzo's
Oyster Bar downstairs, Berlin's
Cocktail and Cigar Bar upstairs)
to the Hogfish Bar and Grill,
whose motto "A Great Place If
You Can Find It" is well taken.
For sunset, the pier at Mallory
Square is without equal.
Visitors actually applaud as
the sun dips gently beneath the
horizon.
Key West is totally built out;
the only vacant parcels of land
are public parks. One of our tour
drivers said that houses in need
of repair sell for $90 per square


foot. The 1,000-square foot house
next to him is priced at $900,000,
he estimated it would take
$50,000 to make it livable.
Another driver told us that
many of the motels and inns are
converting to condominiums.
They are pre-sold at $1.2 million
to $1.6 million per unit. Even the
Holiday Inn is going condo.
Long-time conchs wonder
what that means for Key West,
whose primary industry is
tourism.
"The average vacationer
spends three days on the island,
and eats out three meals a day,"
our driver said.
"Condo owners will cook their
own meals. They won't take
tours, rent scooters, or visit the
attractions.
"What will happen to Key
West then?"
Eighty years ago, in 1935, a
hurricane destroyed the island's
economy.
Will condominiums do the
same in the 21st Century?

By LETA WRIGHT
The other day I was watching
the game show "Win Ben Stein's
Money," and I actually answered
a question real fast.
The question was "who was
the chief of the Seminole Indi-
ans?" The contestant answered
Osceola before Ben Stein could
answer. And I just wished they
could have told about Osceola be-
ing here in Fort Meade. Anyway,


history was made by Osceola and
he is still well known.'
Since all the artifacts are
packed in storage, I do not have
access to pictures, or historical
stories, but the other day, Gloria
Jean Durrance brought me a pic-
ture that was made in the 1950s,
probably. I need someone to
identify these cute girls and this
adorable boy. Please call me at
285-9182, if you can identify
them.


I-. .


ture was probably made in the 1950s. If you can identify these chil-
dren, call Leta Wright at 285-9182. (Photo provided)


The man called in and said
our museum roofing was in, so
maybe we can get started on the
roof repair soon. Keep your fin-
gers crossed for us. It has been a
long time since last September,
and here we are facing another
hurricane season.
One nice thing to report is the
crape myrtle trees around the
museum are in full bloom, and
are so pretty. The rainhas made
everything shout with growth.


We need for those periwinkles to
re-seed and grow among the
azaleas. They are the pretty old
fashioned flower that seems to
bloom all year.
If you have any old news sto-
ries, please let us tell them. We
will be attending the Pioneer
Luncheon on June 16, so maybe
we'll hear some news from some
of Polk's pioneers.

Additional Victims of


Contractor Impersonator

Urged to Come Forward


An Auburndale man was ar-
rested last month on charges of
grand theft and scheming to de-
fraud after allegedly posing as a
contractor.
According to a Polk County
Sheriff arrest affidavit, Robert J.
Hill, 36, of 306 Dixie Highway,
approached several victims
claiming to be a contractor, and
offering to re-screen decks and
do other types of repairs on
homes that had suffered dam-
ages from last year's hurricanes.
Hill would enter into a con-
tract with the victims and re-
quest an up-front partial pay-
ment, detectives said. Once he
received money from the victims,
Hill was never heard from or
seen again.
Detectives located Hill on
May 29, and placed him under
arrest. Since that time, more vic-
tims have come forward, and ad-
ditional charges have been
added to his arrest record.
His current charges are six
counts of grand theft, three
counts of scheming to defraud,
and one count of conducting
business without a contractor's


Robert J. Hill


license. He also is charged with
one count of possession of meth-
amphetamine, one count of pos-
session of drug paraphernalia,
and one count of non-payment of
child support.
Anyone who feels they may
have been victimized by Hill
should contact the Polk County
Sheriffs Office at 533-0344, or
Detective Suzan Weiss at 297-
1146.

When Bartow has something
to celebrate, it's not unusual for a
parade to be included in the fes-
tivities.
With the Bartow High School
girls softball team recently win-
ning the Class 4A state champi-
onship, and the school's
weightlifting team winning its
state title, its seems only fitting
that a parade be held in their
honor.
After all, events such as these
are why Polk County's capital city
is sometimes unofficially referred
to as the "city of parades."
Bartow Chamber of Commerce,
City of Bartow, Community
Redevelopment Agency and Main
Street Bartow are continuing the
tradition by partnering to present
a Parade of Champions to take


place on Friday, June 17, cele-
brating the teams' state titles.
The parade will begin at 6 p.m.
at the parking lot directly north
of the high school stadium, and
proceed north on Broadway to
Summerlin Street, turning right
on Summerlin Street to. Central
Avenue.
The parade will end there and
join Main Street Bartow's Friday
Fest with its live music, food and
kids' activities.
A short program will feature
business and civic leaders to rec-
ognizing and honoring the team
members.
Those wishing to participate in
the parade with a float or vehicle
should call Mary Jordan at 519-
0508 for more information.

Democrat. 533-4183. No lie.

Veteran Coach Optimistic

About New WH Franchise


Despite an opening day loss to
Zephyrhills, experienced coach
Jim Murphy is optimistic about
his field of athletes that will
comprise Winter Haven's inau-
gural club with the wooden bat
Florida Collegiate Summer
League.
As well as being the Warthogs
first coach, Murphy has spent
the past five years as head coach
at Osceola High School, but has
extensive playing and coaching
experience with wooden bats.
The Illinois native is winnin-
gest high school coach in his
home state (364-118), and after
22 years as a professional scout
for a host of major league organi-
zations, Coach Murphy has de-
veloped a keen eye for talent,
and he has assembled a young
but promising group of players.
SMurphy expects to see some
offensive power is expected from
Bartow High School graduate
Jason Peacock (FSC).
Peacock went 0-4, with three
strike outs in the opening game
of the season, but was involved


in 14 put outs at first base and
committed no errors.
The Hogs have a strong mid-
dle infield with Florida All Star
Ricky Davis (Lynn). As a 6'5"
right hander, San Diego draft
pick Earl Smith (Grossmont JC)
will bring a formidable presence
from the hill as will southpaw
hurler Kyle Ramsey (UNF). Be-
hind the plate, Murphy has se-
cured two catchers who bring
separate strengths to the team.
Drew Powell (FSC) is a defensive
marvel while lan Paxton (Gulf
Coast CC/USC) is an offensive
force for the Gamecocks.
In the outfield, Murphy has
imported speed and agility in
Montevallo teammates Danny
Furto and Brantley Clay who
should burn things up around
the bases as well as in the grass.
Although the Hogs' roster is
full of youth for this upcoming
season, Coach Murphy is confi-
dent that they will create an im-
pact on the league and hope to
be make a run a the FCSL play-
offs, held July 27 to 31.

In front of a McKethan Sta-
dium record crowd of 5,698 fans
on Saturday night, the sixth-
ranked University of Florida
baseball team (45-20) used two
big offensive innings and a
strong showing from junior
starting pitcher Alan Horne
(Marianna) to defeat ninth-
ranked Florida State (53-20), by
a score of 8-5.
With the victory, the Gators
claimed the NCAA Gainesville
Super Regional, 2-0, sending
them to the College World Series
to Omaha for the first time in
seven years. Florida will face
Southeastern Conference rival
Tennessee in its opening game
on Friday at Rosenblatt Sta-
dium.
Florida opened the scoring in
the top of the first with four hits
and four runs to chase FSU jun-
ior Mark Sauls. Sophomores
Adam Davis (Fort Myers) and
Matt LaPorta (Port Charlotte)
poked back-to-back one-out sin-
gles and classmate Brian Jerolo-
man (Wellington) stroked an
RBI single into right, to plate
Davis with the first run.,
Following a run-scoring
groundout by freshman Brandon
McArthur iSeffner), sophomore
Brian Leclerc (Clearwater)
cranked his 13th homer of the
campaign over the right-field
fence for a 4-0 cushion.


Junior Justin Tordi (Orlando)
was hit by a pitch, ending Sauls'
time on the hill after two-thirds
of an inning in favor of junior
Matt DiBlasi.
The Gators pushed across
three runs in the sixth to seize
an 8-3 advantage, including an
RBI double into right center by
Gavin Dickey (Tallahassee)
Horne held the Seminoles hit-
less through the sixth, seventh,
and eight innings and then re-
tired the first batter in the ninth
inning before giving up a home
run and a walk. The right-
hander went 8.1 innings, giving
up eight hits while striking out
eight to collect his eighth-
straight decision to improve to 9-
2.
Senior Mike Pete (Brandon),
relieved Horne but Pat McMa-
hon would make his second
pitching change of the inning,
bringing in senior Connor Fal-
kenbach (Parkland).
Falkenbach got the final bat-
ter to ground out to first to
punch the Gators' first ticket to
Omaha since 1998.
Falkenbach recorded his
ninth save of the year in getting
the final out and the Gators
erupted out of the dugout and
the bullpen to dog pile between
the pitcher's mound and first
base.
