ByRUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer
A school administrator return-
ing to Bartow in the Fall was at
the center of a pay scale approval
debate at. the Polk County school
board meeting on June 14.
The new pay scale adjustments
set salary highs and lows for all
school based administrators in
Polk arid adjusted them accord-
ingly for. 2005. The problem is
that six of the administrators will
be making more than the new
scale calls for.
At the heart of the issue is Dr.
Steve Petrie, whose salary is the
highest of the six, as well as most
over the range's ceiling. Petrie
worked in Bartow as an adminis-
trator from 1978 to 1988 and will
be the new principal at Union
Academy in the Fall.
The other five involved are the
assistant principal at Bethune
Academy, assistant principal at
Elbert Elementary, assistant
principal -at Lake Alfred
Elementary, incoming principal
at Daniel Jenkins Academy
Middle, and the principal at East
Area Adult School.
Petrie's salary is $13,493 high-
er than the. highest salary for a
middle s:hq.i .principal with 14

years of experience is supposed to
make. Some of this stems from
when Petrie held the position of
area assistant superintendent.
When that position was eliminat-
ed in 2002, he did not have to
take a substantial pay cut when
he transferred into his former
position, principal of Sleepy Hill
Middle.
Under former Supt. Jim
7Thornhill's administration, some
of the six area assistant superin-
tendents were allowed to keep
their salaries in their new jobs.
Promises reportedly were made
to allow them to keep their
salaries despite the fact that they'
were above the ceiling for their
new positions.
After the debate, the board
voted 5-to-2 to accept the new pay
scale, with the compromise that
in a year, if the salaries of the six
do not fall in line with the pay
scale they will either have to take
a pay cut or transfer to a higher
paying job.
School Supt. Dr. Gail McKinzie
said there were many more peo-
ple who were outside the salary
ranges before school administra-
tors were given three percent
raises this year. By next year, she
said, all but one of them should be
within the prescribed range.


Board Members Brenda
Reddout and Margaret Lofton,
who voted against the plan, didn't
like the message they said
approving the salaries sends to
the school system.
"When the voters had a man-
date to make the change to
appointed superintendent, I
thought that would be then end of
holding some people up to a spe-
cial light and not treating every-
one fairly," Mrs. Reddout said.
"This keeps us at least another
year away from equity and equal-
ity."
Mrs. Lofton said the move
could "cause problems with
employee morale," and was "not
fair."
Board Chm. Kay Fields later
said, "It might not have been fair.
The promise probably should not
have been made."
Board Member Frank O'Reilly,
who earlier in the year voted
against a salary increase for
school board members, said it was
"hypocritical" of them to even be
debating the issue after raising
their own salaries.
"There isn't an employee in
this school district that can turn
around and vote themselves a
$6,000 raise," he said.


Sick Baby
Lending a helping hand to
help save a sick baby is so easy
when the benefit includes deli-
cious food.
A fish fry at the Bartow Moose
Lodge, 301 Moose Lodge Road, is
planned Saturday, June 25, to
benefit Georgia "Faith" Hicks,
and assist with medical expens-
es.
Serving will begin at 5 p.m.
and last until all the fish is gone.
The meal will include all the fish
you can eat, hush puppies and all
the trimmings for $6.
The benefit will also include
an auction, raffles and entertain-
ment in the social quarters of the
lodge.
Little Faith is the focus of a
fundraising campaign here in
Polk County to assist with her
medical expenses.
Born 3-1/2 months premature
on Aug. 20, 2004, weighing just
under two pounds, Faith was
diagnosed with short gut syn-
drome, and doctors at Jackson
Memorial Hospital in Miami rec-
ommend a lifesaving multiviscer-
al transplant (liver, intestines,
stomach, pancreas).
Friends and family are trying
to raise the $50,000 transplant-
related expenses.
An account has been set up at
any Wachovia Bank. The account
number is 3000025423339.
Checks are to be made payable o
to COTA for Georgia H. For on-
line information, visit
www.cota.org and click on
"Patient Campaigns," then click
on "Georgia."
Anyone with items to donate
for the auction may call Don
Reese at 640-3760. Check dona-
tions also may be sent to: P.O.
Box 924, Bartow, Florida 33831-
0924.


pay $33.75.
Although called a "user fee"
and not a tax, the fee will be col-
lected on tax bills, beginning in
October of this year.
It is projected to raise $639,700
next year the first year it is
imposed and revenues will rise
each year as more homes and
commercial buildings are built.
As presently worded, the ordi-
nance requires that the amount
be increased automatically each
year, but two commissioners
opposed the automatic increases,
saying the increases should be
considered by the commission
each year.
Chastain-Skillman, Inc., the
city's consulting firm, computed
that the average Bartow home
has 2,525 square feet of impervi-
ous surface, which is surface
through which water will not
pass. That figure, 2,525 square
feet, is designated as an


Equivalent Residential Unit, or
ERU. Commercial property will
be assessed based on that num-
ber.
A commercial property with
5,050 square feet of impervious
surface, or two ERUs, would pay
$90.
Owners of vacant land would
pay $11.25 for parcels of up to 25
acres, $22.50 for parcels from 25
to 50 acres, and $45 for parcels of
more than 50 acres.
Owners of property with
approved storm retention basins
would get a discount of 25 to 75
percent, depending on the capaci-
ty of their retention systems.
The consultant listed two ini-
tial projects: improvements to the
Hacklake drainage system, $8
million, and improvements to
drainage on Park Avenue,
$320,000. The commission has
not acted on either proposal.
Other projects have not yet


been defined.
The four largest sources of the
new tax would be residential
property (35.8 percent), govern-
ment property (21.8 percent),
commercial property (21.5 per-
cent), and industrial property
(10.7 percent).
Other categories, each
accounting for less than 10 per-
cent, are miscellaneous (5.6 per-
cent), institutional (4.0 percent),
and agricultural (0.6 percent).
Both an ordinance establishing
the "stormwater utility system"
and a companion ordinance estab-
lishing the amount of the tax will
be considered on final reading
tonight.
The commission will meet at 5
o'clock at city hall for a work ses-
sion, and will reconvene at 6:30
for its regular meeting.
The work session will begin

Benefit Planned For


Scott Fowler's Grocery


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer

A blaze may have destroyed
Fowler's Grocery, but not the
helping spirit of the community.
"If you know Scott Fowler, you
will want to help," organizers of
Help Scott Fowler Day said.
On Saturday, June 25, at 8
a.m., family, friends, fellow
church members and customers,
will meet at Fowler's Grocery to
lend a helping hand.
Owner Scott Fowler, his family
and his employees could use some
help with restoration work on his
store that was burned out. .
Everyone is asked to bring
scrub pads (soot will not just wipe
off), paper towels, buckets, lad-
ders, helping hands and a willing
attitude.
Fowler has the cleaning solu-
tion needed to remove the black
soot, which covers the entire
inside of the store located on
Highway 98 East of Fort Meade.
An explosion, apparently from
one of the refrigeration units
located in an open shed at the
right back area of the store,
caused the May 25 fire. No one
was injured in the fire but the


store was engulfed in flames or
smoke.
According to employees,
Fowler has done everything pos-
sible to keep his employees on the
payroll.
He has set up a trailer in the
front of the store, and furnished it
with stoves and cooking equip-
ment in order to continue the
store's catering operations.
Feed sales and gas sales at the
store have continued to operate.
The store furnishes catered,
delivered items on a regular basis
to many of the businesses, clubs
and churches in the area of not
only Fort Meade, but Bartow,
Bowling Green and Wauchula.
Although employees are glad
to get to continue to earn their
salaries, it is not easy to work
with no air conditioning.
"Although the store was
insured, most people in this area
have experienced what it is like to
wait for an insurance company's
help," said organizers.
"When dumpsters and supplies
are to be delivered the next day,
they are not, and who knows
when they will be."
"Each day as I deliver the mail,
I see Mr. Fowler covered from
head to toe with soot, out in the


hot sun, working, trying to show
his stepson how to paint, how to
pressure wash. He is always
working," Julie Sturgis said.
For years Fowler has support-
ed every school, community, or
charitable activity the football
program, cheerleaders, band, con-
cession stands, FFA, his friends,
his neighbors and his employees.
He has been known to open his
store after hours, let kids in to
make lunches for an activity and
donate all of the fixings, accord-
ing to organizers of the communi-
ty help day.
This is the store's third fire,
and Fowler has had other
tragedies, such as being involved
in an accident and being confined
to a wheelchair for several years.
Fowler is a churchman. He
attends the First Assembly of God
Church in Bartow. Some of his
fellow church members plan to be
on hand to help.
Fowler's daughter, Heather
O'Cain, who lives in Hartow, said
she will be on hand to help orga-
nize. Her Bartow church has also
expressed a desire to help.
"Mr. Fowler could use some
help from all those whom he has
helped," said Mrs. Sturgis.

He added, "Would you place sand

Alarum was an alarm clock,

bell. If that didn't work, the
sleeper's pajamas were
mechanically whisked off. If that
still didn't work, the mattress
tilted and the sleeper was
dumped unceremoniously onto

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

Help, I've Fallen and I Can't Get Up


Editorial











Deadline for Withdrawal


Would Undermine Troops


Every so often, a member of Congress
will reach out for his 15 minutes of fame by
suggesting that Congress set a deadline for
withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.
It may be an effective way of declaring
frustration over mounting American casu-
alties and slow progress in preparing lead-
ers of a democratic Iraq to take control of
their country's destiny.
But declaration of a hard deadline for
withdrawing troops from Iraq would send
a clear message to the insurgents:
Just hold on until such-and-such a date, and
victory is yours. On that date, America will
achieve what Richard Nixon called "peace with
honor" in Vietnam by giving up and leaving.
That would make the war in Iraq a mili-
tary tragedy akin to the war in Vietnam. It
would render all the American losses
meaningless.
We have never been comfortable with
Bush's launching America's first pre-emp-
tive war; we will leave it to history to make
that judgment.
But we remain committed to the notion
that when American troops are committed
to the battlefield, they must have the
national resolve to see them through to vic-
tory.
Thus far, that resolve appears reason-
ably intact, but proposals to withdraw
troops by an arbitrary date undermine that
concept.
While the support of President Bush and
the confidence in his leadership varies
from poll to pol, we sense that the support
for America's men and women in the
armed forces in Iraq (and Afghanistan)
remains strong.
Our inability to locate and neutralize
roadside bombs or "improvised explo-
sive devices" is frustrating. Rocket pro-
pelled grenades, an unsophisticated
weapon akin to the bazooka of Korean
War days, are used against our troops and
our allies with devastating effectiveness.
The "smart bombs" of Gulf War I are of
little use in this war of insurgency.
That said, let us not lose sight of the suc-
cess of America and our allies:
The regime of Saddam, Hussein was


toppled in a matter of a few weeks.
SSaddam was found hiding in a hole in
the ground, and is being brought to trial.
His two most sadistic sons were found
and killed.
Free elections have been held in the
face of insurgent threats to slaughter all
who dared to vote.
A democratically-elected government
is struggling to create representative gov-
ernance in a land previously controlled by
a ruthless dictatorship.
Nation-building projects by the
United States are creating schools and
infrastructure on a daily basis.
And perhaps most important, an Iraqi
armed force is being trained, under
American leadership, to defend a newly-
free Iraq against insurgents.
It hasn't been easy. Every American
death is a tragedy; that is the grim reality
of the cost of war.
And it's not likely to get easier in the
near future.
But given the backing of the American
people to see them through to victory,
American troops will prevail.
That goal can be achieved, but not if
Congress announces that'on a given date,
America will pull out of Iraq.
Support for our troops means showing
the same resolve at home that our troops
show on the battlefield.
Anything less is a supreme injustice to
our soldiers.

When our kids were growing
up, I had two rules:
For as long as you live at our
house, no smoking, and no
motorcycle riding. Smoking is a
tough habit to give up, and it can
kill you. Motorcycle riding is fun,
but I rode a motorcycle as a
teenager, and I used up two gen-
erations' worth of luck; I'm sorry,
but I used up your share.
Leonard Tyler had a Harley
165, if memory serves. Since his
parents and mine have all gone
on to their greater reward, I can
now confess that we'd take that
thing out on County Road 555,
and he'd open it up. We would
lean over to minimize wind resis-
tance. The object was to see how
far we could get the speedometer
needle to go past 70 miles per
hour and into the words "Harley
Davidson" printed across the bot-
tom of the speedometer.
Like I said, I used up two gen-
erations' worth of luck.
On our vacation to Key West
earlier this month, one of our
objectives was to rent a small
motor scooter and go tooling
around the island. The typical
scooter has a 40-cubic inch dis-
placement engine, about one-
fourth as powerful as Leonard's
165.
With gasoline in Key West


priced at about 20 cents higher
than the mainland, and parking
lots charging $10 a pop, a motor
scooter, even at $75 plus tax for a
24-hour rental, makes at least a
little bit of sense.
Renting one at the age of 64, a
mere 47 years after the last time I
rode one ... well... that's a judg-
ment call.
The motor scooter rental guy,
sporting large bandages over
fresh abrasions on one knee and
one elbow (pretty poor market-
ing, if you ask me) had me sign a
contract in which I certified that
neither Mary nor I was pregnant,
drunk, or ignorant of how dan-
gerous a little motor scooter can
be, even in laid-back Key West,
where people actually observe
the speed limit.
"I'm a little rusty at this," I told
my friend Mary. "Let me take a
spin the length of the parking
lot." Probably could have found a
better term than "spin."
After running the scooter only
a little way into a viburnum
hedge I don't think Bandage
Guy was watching I told Mary
she could get on the back while I
took a much longer test drive in
the mostly empty parking lot at
the hotel next door.
After one run around the
course, I told her that since our


children should have at least one
able-bodied parent, she should
get off while I practiced some
more. I soloed for 20 minutes or
so, and then let her back on for
the better part of half an hour.
It's amazing the bond of trust
that can develop in 41 years and
50 weeks of marriage.
The problem with my 45 min-
utes of practice is that it involved
twists and turns, accelerating and
slowing, but no stopping and
starting.
As long as we were moving,
we were ... well... moving.
The trick to stopping one of
these little suckers is that you
have to put your feet down just as
the scooter comes to a full stop,
and before your passenger's foot
rests hit you in the Achilles ten-
dons. It takes a few whacks to
master that skill.
I managed the scooter pretty
well until the first time that I tried
to start from a stop sign and
make a right turn simultaneously.
It's a simple maneuver in my van;
it's a little tricky on a scooter.
Fortunately, my right foot pro-
tected the scooter, on which I had
declined $25 for insurance cover-
age, as it tipped over and hit the
pavement. And fortunately, Mary
was able to shift her weight and
remain standing, straddling the


overturned scooter.
Unfortunately, she was no
able to climb off the scooted
which put me in the "Help, I'vt
fallen and I can't get up" mode.
The nice young man in the ca
behind us was joined moment
later by another young man wh(
had witnessed our dilemma.
They were helpful and non
judgmental as they helped Mary
step free and lifted the motorcy-
cle from my foot.
Over the course of nearly five
hours of tooling around Key
West, less an hour for a world
class lunch at A&B Lobster
House, I managed to keep the
scooter upright. It wasn't always
pretty; I won't be auditioning for
the remake of "Easy Rider."
Mary asked me if riding a
scooter after all these years made
me feel younger. I assured her
that I felt every day of my 64
years.
As I told Mary at the end of the
day, it's sort of like when I rap-
pelled out of a helicopter at
Camp Blanding: I'm glad I did it
once; I'm not sure I'd pay a dime
to do it again.
But on reflection, it was fun.
The motor scooter, my right
foot, and our marriage all sur-
vived intact. That says something
about the durability of all three.

BARTOW I am all for
growth and beautification of our
city, but I, like many other con-
cerned citizens of Bartow, believe
that the people who make these
decisions for Bartow need to look
at the big picture before they
these decisions.
The new developments are
going to presentfsome problems
that some may not have thought
about such as the effect that this
many new people will have on
our insurance rates. The more
people you have in ar area, the
more police and fire protection
are needed. If this is not compen-
sated then our area will receive a
higher rate.
On these lines we also have to


remember that without the extra
fire and police protection, our city
is left with a void and protection
may not be available when and
where needed.
And on to the water issues, we
have had for many years prob-
lems with our water pressure,
and with all the new develop-
ments going in, these new resi-
dents will need water and thus
our pressure decreases even
more.
Another example of improper
planning is the widening of the
sidewalks on Main Street. First of
all, after the construction is com-
plete, if you are on Main Street
and are waiting to make a left or


a right hand turn but there is a
vehicle in front of you that wish-
es to make a left hand turn which
is having to wait for oncoming
traffic to clear, then you could be
waiting for quite some time.
Widening the sidewalks is to
whose benefit? The only busi-
nesses that are on that end of the
street are antique dealers and
restaurants which most of them
are closed in the evenings.
Patrons will steer clear of the area
one because there is no parking in
the area and because it will be
even more difficult to maneuver
around on the streets .with the
traffic problem that will be pre-
sent. In lieu of spending the


money for the sidewalks to bring
in business, give businesses an
incentive they can't refuse such
as improving the buildings and
parking in that area which is
what customers want to see when
they go shopping.
I believe there are many other
things the City can look to for
spending our money on, like
water pressure, drainage, better
roads, and more police and fire
protection before spending
money to "make us look pretty"
and bring more people to town
when we cannot properly sup-
port and protect the people that
are already here.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Read the Labels


Just because I live alone does-
n't mean that I should survive on
junk food, bananas, peanut but-
ter, and bologna sandwiches.
It is monotonous to prepare
food for one, so I take short cuts
at the grocery store and avail
myself of bags of salad mix and
fruit.
Yesterday, I bought some salad
in it's own little plastic coffin.
When I got home, I put away
the dog food, bird seed and other
essentials. .
The salad mix looked like an
adventure waiting to happen.


In minuscule, tiny print on the
label, it listed everything that the
salad contained. I thought I
would have to go buy a magnify-
ing glass to read it.
"A varying mixture of season-
al greens that contains red
romaine, green romaine, red leaf
lettuce, green mustard, baby
spinach, lolla rosa, red chard,
radicchio, mizuna, red mustard,
arugula, tat soi, frisee, broccoli
florets, cauliflower florets, grape
tomatoes, bell pepper (red, yel-
low, green, orange), mushrooms,
green onions, radishes, cucumber


and baby cut carrots." That is
absolutely true no joke here.
I consider myself a fairly
sophisticated person and decided
to have this salad for dinner. It
looked crisp, colorful and, well,
"strange." Upon closer inspec-
tion, after switching to my read-
ing glasses, I noticed things in it
that looked like they were put in
there to test my derring-do.
I tried to locate the lolla rosa,
mizuna and the tat soi in particu-
lar. There was some curly looking
stuff in a bunch that could be the


frisee and some red splattered
sort of cabbage.
I used to love to visit my
grandfather Magill on his farm in
LaBelle, Florida, when I was a-
child. They knew what made up
a salad lettuce, tomatoes,
.onions, and cucumbers.
If there was something in the,
salad that we didn't recognize,
we got rid of it. If it moved, we
picked it out and threw it in the;
garbage.
No funny business there.

Bartow Beefs Owner Winner of

'Florida Retailer of the Year'


Bartow's Beef O'Brady's
owner has been named one of
the Florida Retail Federation's
(FRF) 2005 Retailer of the Year
Awards for Leadership (ROYAL)
winners for his multiple fran-
chises.
The winners were Don Bosko,
Beef O' Brady's Family Sports
Pub, Lakeland; Lester Scaff,
Scaffs Inc. (dba S & S Food
Stores and Scaffs Markets),
Lake City; and Guy J. Merry,
Merry Jewelers, Inc., Eustis.
They will be honored and re-
ceive their awards at a luncheon
being held in conjunction with
the University of Florida's na-
tionally acclaimed "Retailing
Smarter" symposium on Thurs-
day, June 23, at 12:30 p.m. at
the Omni Orlando Resort at
Champions Gate in Orlando.
In its seventh year, the award
program recognizes retailers
who have successfully blended
business skills with commitment
to their customers, communities,
employees and the state's retail
industry. A selection committee
of retail business operators, edu-
cators, media representatives
and other industry officials chose
the recipients from a pool of re-
tailer nominees from across the
state.
"From providing jobs and col-
lecting sales tax for the state to
community outreach and philan-
thropic endeavors, retailers pro-
vide a firm foundation that posi-
tively benefits the citizens and


communities in which they live
and do business," says Richard
A. McAllister, FRF's president
and CEO. "Our outstanding
ROYAL recipients reflect just a
few of Florida's many fine retail-
ers who are making a positive
difference in their communities
everyday."
Don Bosko, Beef O' Brady's -
Family Sports Pub, Lakeland, $1
million to $10 million category:
Don Bosko opened his first busi-
ness, a Beef O' Brady's in Lake-
land in 1991. Assisted by his
wife, Linda, and the couple's four
children, Bosko has watched
their business grow from one lo-
cation that took in only $75 dur-
ing lunch on the opening day, to
six successful restaurants in
three counties, including one in
Bartow. From such organiza-
tions as Toys for Tots and the
March of Dimes to sponsoring a
number of sports teams, Bosko
credits the company's growth to
being involved with the commu-
nities they serve.
Lester Scaff, Scaffs Inc.,
Lake City, more than $10 mil-
lion category: In 1961, Lester
Scaff, along with his wife, Anne,

and Bill Nelson (D-FL) have reit-
erated their pledge to fight any
and all efforts to include an oil/
natural gas inventory provision
in the energy bill currently un-
der consideration in Congress.
Senator Martinez said mo-
mentum is on Florida's side, but
the fight is far from over.
"My goal is to arrive at inven-
tory language that leaves Flor-
ida alone," said Senator Marti-
nez. "Florida's lawmakers have
worked long and hard to build
protections. The inventory lan-
guage that's currently in the bill
weakens those protections and
must go."
The inventory provision,
authored by U.S. Senator Mary
Landrieu (D-LA), requires an in-
ventory of all oil and natural gas
resources on the Outer Conti-
nental Shelf.
Congress has rejected this
sort of inventory in the past be-
cause it is duplicative of previous
inventories and harmful to the
environment.

first section is completed.
When a business -applies for
the awards, it can choose to ap-
ply for just the Spirit of the Fam-

All businesses that complete
the full application will receive
the results of an employee satis-
faction survey completed by


Service (MMS) already provides
an estimate of undiscovered con-
ventionally and economically re-
coverable oil and natural gas re-
serves in the Outer Continental
Shelf.
"Why would we waste time
and money and harm our natu-
ral resources to inventory an
area we do not want drilled?"
said Senator Martinez. 'The cost
for a new inventory could sur-
pass a billion dollars and I think
that's a huge waste."
The proposed inventory would
be harmful to marine habitat
and fishing interests because it
calls for seismic 3-D exploration
surveys that produce powerful,
repetitive explosions in the wa-
ter.
Florida's senators have been
successful in ensuring no OCS
provisions would be included in
the Senate energy bill that will
in any way impact the federal
moratorium protections that
Florida's Gulf currently enjoys.
The U.S. Senate returns to
consideration of the energy bill
next week.

Gators One Win Away From

College World Series Final


In a winner's bracket contest
at the NCAA baseball College
World Series, fifth-ranked Flor-
ida (47-20) defeated second-
ranked Nebraska (57-14), 7-4,
before a crowd of 26,813 fans at
Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha
on Sunday night, the second-
highest attendance in NCAA.
With their season-best sev-
enth-straight win, the Gators
need one more victory to reach
next weekend's best-of-three
championship series.
"What an outstanding ball
game," said Florida Head Coach
Pat McMahon. "What an out-
standing environment. I'm very
proud of the way we competed
all the way to the end. Both
clubs competed their hearts out
tonight."
Senior Jeff Corsaletti (Port
Charlotte) tied an NCAA College
World Series record with three
doubles and finished 4-for-5 with
three runs and two RBIs, while
sophomore Adam Davis (Fort
Myers) connected on a two-run
homer in the opening stanza.
.Junior pitcher Darren O'Day
(Jacksonville) was brilliant in re-
lief of senior Tommy Boss (Dun-
nellon), holding the Huskers
scoreless for 4.1 innings to im-


prove to 8-3 on the campaign.
"Darren O'Day was outstand-
ing. He threw strikes and he
competed. He had a tremendous
look in his eyes," said McMahon.
The Gators jumped out to a 2-
0 lead in the top of the first on
Davis 11th home run of the sea-
son. Corsaletti had opened the
game with a double down the
right-field line, his team-leading
16th two-bagger of the year.
Davis sent Dorn's next pitch over
the wall in right to put Florida
on the scoreboard first.
"We were happy to be the
away team because we wanted to
start early and set the tone,"
Corsaletti said. "We had 26,000
people get quiet in a hurry. We
couldn't have scripted a better
start."
The Gators erupted for four
runs on three hits and a Husker
error in the fifth to seize a 7-2
lead. Junior Justin Tordi (Or-
lando) reached on a fielding er-
ror to start things off and junior
Stephen Barton beat out an in-
field hit to give the Gators two
runners aboard.
Corsaletti cleared the bases
with his third double of the game
to increase the margin to 5-2. He
became the seventh player in


CWS history to have three dou-
bles in an outing.
After Davis grounded out, La-
Porta was walked intentionally
with two down. The move back-
fired when Jeroloman rifled his
llth double to left field to bring
across two more runs for a 7-2
Gator advantage.
When asked about allowing
the first two runners on base in
the fifth, Nebraska Head Coach
Mike Anderson said, "It was big.
That's a mental letdown that
happened. People who have seen
us play this year know that
hasn't happened.
"They didn't produce a run on
that play, but give them credit
for driving in a run. You can't
give extra outs."
Nebraska would add two more
runs in the final innings, but
that would be all for a 7-4 final.
The Huskers, who saw an end
to their 11-game winning streak,
will next face Arizona State (40-
24) in an elimination game on
Tuesday afternoon. The Sun
Devils ousted Tennessee earlier
Sunday, 4-2, after scoring three
runs in the eighth inning.
The Gators will meet either
ASU or Nebraska at 2 p.m. on
Wednesday, live on ESPN.

At the February meeting of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), commissioners approved
changing the Spring Creek Unit
of the Big Bend Wildlife Man-
agement Area (WMA) from a dog
hunt area to a still hunt area.
Because of that loss of public
land available for deer-dog hunt-
ing, commissioners were asked
to consider allowing deer-dog
hunting on the Tide Swamp Unit
of the Big Bend Wildlife Man-
agement Area (WMA), located in
Taylor County. The commission-
ers directed staff to determine if
the change was feasible.
The first step in the process
was to send letters to everyone
who had applied for a quota
hunt permit on the Tide Swamp
or Spring Creek units for the
2004-2005 season. The letter,
sent to more than 650 hunters,
explained the process and re-
quested input. The letter was
posted on the FWC website and
news releases went out state-
wide to obtain an indication of
the public position on the issue.
As of June 6, FWC has re-
ceived 128 letters. Of those, 118
(92 percent) requested that Tide
Swamp remain a still hunt area.
Letters from 10 people (eight
percent) requested some type of
dog hunting. Staff also received
petitions with 14 signatures re-
questing that dog hunting be al-
lowed and petitions with 27 sig-
natures requesting that the area
remain still hunt.
Two open house meetings
have been scheduled for inter-
ested members of the public to
review and discuss the results of


the "Request for Comments"
mailing. The first meeting is
June 21 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the
Embassy Suites Hotel, 3705
Spectrum Blvd., in Tampa. The
second will be June 23 from 6:30
to 8:30 p.m. at the Steinhatchee
Community Center, 1013 River-
side Drive in Steinhatchee.
"We were looking for public
input on this issue and encour-
age all persons interested to
please attend one of these meet-
ings," said John Ault, FWC
North Central Regional Public
Hunting Areas Coordinator.
"FWC is aware there are hunters
who oppose allowing deer-dog
hunting on the Tide Swamp Unit
and others who support it. Eve-
ryone's views on this issue are
important to the Commission.
No one is excluded from the op-
portunity to provide input, even
if you didn't apply for a quota
hunt permit on either area."
The FWC staff is planning to
make a presentation to the Com-
missioners on this issue at the
"Commission Meeting" sched-
uled for Sept. 21-22 meeting in
St. Petersburg. The planned
presentation will include a sum-
mary of comments as well as
staff recommendations.
Anyone who is unable to at-
tend the open houses may send
comments on this issue to:
John Ault, Regional Public
Hunting Areas Coordinator,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission, 3377 E.
U.S. Highway 90, Lake City, FL

The public can also provide

Feral Pigs Cause Problems In Florida


By CHUCK WOODS
University of Florida

Florida's population boom
now includes 500,000 vild hogs
whose piggish habits are causing
problems for farmers, residents
and health officials as well as
native flora and fauna.
"Nothing personal, but the
only state with more wild hogs
than Florida is Texas," said Bill
Giuliano, an assistant professor
of wildlife ecology at the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
Wild or feral hogs can now be
found in every Florida county
and in at least 35 states in-
cluding one to two million hogs
in the Southeast. Nationwide,
their population totals about
three million.
."Because they are prolific
breeders, there is no.way to com-
pletely eradicate them," Giuliano
said. "Even with intensive hunt-
ing pressure, you're not going to
get rid of them."
He said the problem can be
traced to 1539 when Hernando
DeSoto brought hogs into south-
west Florida, and some of them
found freedom in the New
World.
Nearly 500 years later, there
are some three million descen-
dants of these "pioneer pigs"
across the nation.
In Florida, some of the high-
est densities of feral hogs can be
found north and west of Lake
-Okeechobee where large forested
tracts, dense vegetation, abun-
dant water and limited public ac-
cess provide an ideal environ-
ment for the pigs. Hog numbers
tend to be lower in areas with in-
tensive agriculture or urban de-
velopment,
"Although they are a popular
target for hunters, wild hogs are
coming into conflict with people
and wildlife," Giuliano said. "
Farmers are not happy when fe-
ral hogs root up their fields, and
health officials say the animals
carry diseases that could affect
wildlife, livestock and people."
Giuliano, who conducts re-
search on the animals with
George Tanner, a professor in
the UF wildlife ecology and con-

servation department, said hogs
can also host many diseases and
parasites, including hog cholera,
psuedorabies, brucellosis, tuber-
culosis, salmonellosis, anthrax,
ticks, fleas, lice and various
flukes and worms.
"Wild hogs, which usually
weigh 100 to 200 pounds, are
dangerous," Giuliano said. "Al-
though they prefer to run and es-
cape danger, they can be aggres-
sive when they're injured or cor-
nered. They can move with great
speed and can cause serious in-
jury with their tusks."
Acorns are their favorite food,
but they will eat almost any-
thing, including dead animals,
and it seems like they're always
looking for opportunities, he
said. When natural foods are
scarce or inaccessible, hogs will
forage on almost any agricul-
tural crop and livestock feed.
They also will feed on tree
seeds and seedlings, causing sig-
nificant damage in forests,
groves and plantations. In Flor-
ida and the Southeast, this may
be a problem in regenerating
long-leaf pine forests.
In addition to the effects of
consuming, knocking down and
trampling large amounts of na-
tive vegetation and crops, the
rooting behavior of wild hogs
causes significant damage, Giuli-
ano said.
Rooting digging for foods
below the surface of the ground
destabilizes the soil surface,
uprooting or weakening native
vegetation, damaging lawns and
causing erosion.
Their wallowing behavior de-
stroys small ponds and stream
banks, which may affect water
quality. They also prey upon
ground-nesting wildlife, includ-
ing sea turtles.
"Wild hogs compete for food
with other game animals such as
deer, turkeys and squirrels, and
they may consume the nests and
young of many reptiles, ground-
nesting birds and mammals," he
said. "With their fine sense of
smell, wild hogs can find and
consume young domestic live-
stock, including poultry, lambs
and goats. Millions of dollars are
spent each year to prevent dam-


age from hogs."
Tanner said it may be possi-
ble to limit further population
expansion by hunting, various
trapping methods and exclusion.
"Hunting is an important con-
trol method for wild hogs be-
cause it provides recreational op-
portunities," he said. "Baited hog
traps may be more successful
than hunting, especially when
the animals are nocturnally ac-
tive. The traps should be strong
enough to contain large hogs and
have tall walls or a wire roof to
prevent them from escaping.
"And remember that hogs are
powerful animals that are easily
excited when trapped."
Fencing is an effective but ex-
pensive control option for a small
area such as a garden, but hogs
are intelligent and resourceful
animals that often find ways
through many types of fences,
Tanner said..
Chain link fences buried at
least 12 inches under the ground
with heavy supports and posts,
and various types of mesh or
multi-stranded electric fence
provide the best results.
