Armory Busy During Summer

As Students Learn Real Life Skills


By RUSTIN DWYER
Staff Writer

As the summer heat bakes the
humid landscape of Polk County,
most students have time off from
school while the Bartow's unit in
the Florida National Guard, 2nd
Battalion, 116th Field Artillery, is
busy in Afghanistan.
That would lead one to assume
the armory at the Bartow
Municipal Airport is a pretty
lonely and quiet place.
Not so.
Five days a week, the sounds
pf laughter and friendly conversa-
tion echo around the halls of the
armory, currently the summer
home for the About Face program
in Bartow.
The About Face program is a
community outreach program by
the Florida National Guard in
cooperation with the Dept. of
Children and Families. Students
whose families qualify for tempo-
rary assistance for needy families
are given a stipend to attend a
series of classes that focus on two
things life skills and acade-
mics.
While there are four perma-
nent sites for the About Face pro-
gram year 'round, Bartow is one
of 27 sites that operates only dur-
ing the summer months.
Two classes of about 25 chil-
dren will come to the armory this
Summer and upon completion,
each student will receive a check
for $300. Karen Marcellus, the
site manager, said the monetary
incentive is what keeps the pro-
gram running.
"Sometimes when the students
come in, they go right into their
regular school behavior of 'So
what.' We tell them straight up,
'Hey, we are paying you, this is
work' and they usually change
their attitude."
Classes are broken up into two
sections which rotate each day
between the focus areas.
Sometimes a group will work on
assignments such as opening and
balancing a checking account or
how to apply for a job.
"Most people, myself included,
have never had a class on these
kinds of things," said lead
instructor Danielle Odden.
"These are things that every child
should know."
In addition to life skills assign-
ments, the students are visited by
a variety guest speakers, ranging
from local police offices, firefight-
ers and EMTs to insurance sales-
men and Mosaic workers. The


speakers tell the students about
job opportunities after high
school and ways to prepare for
them.
Meanwhile, the other section
utilizes a computer lab set up at
the armory, where students study
a series of 21 academic modules.
Half of the modules deal with
communication and the other half
mathematics. Mrs. Marcellus
said the work really helps stu-
dents better prepare for the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Tests (FCAT) that all
Florida students are required to
take.
Dept. of Education testing has
shown that of the 5.368 students
the program has had since 1997,
88.5 percent (4,455) successfully
completed the program and went
on to show increases in academic
performance.
While the whole set-up may
sound very scholastic in nature,
Mrs. Odden said it is more of a
vehicle to build self-confidence
and to help students learn how to
live on their own. All of the
assignments are reality-based,
making them relevant to the lives
of the students.
"When they come in here, I tell
them, 'You may not be successful
in school, and I don't care. I'm
going to get you through this,'"
Mrs. Odden said.
Mrs. Marcellus said problems
with discipline and motivation
are rare due to the number of
instructors and mentors on hand
to help out. The students seemed
very glad to be there, and a couple
said they would attend even with-
out the monetary incentive.
"It really keeps me occupied,"


said Clyde Carson, a 14-year-old
Discovery Academy student who
has dreams of being a lawyer or a
teacher after attending Bethune
Cookman College. "I'm glad I
have something to do all day."
Carson said he would spend his
$300 on new school clothes and
shoes.
For Mrs. Marcellus, who has
been with the program for eight
years, this is her first year work-
ing in Bartow. To bolster atten-
dance, she handed out flyers at
housing projects in Polk. In
Winter Haven, she even went so
far as to solicit door-to-door.
"It's different than my regular
job" as a teacher at a private
Christian school in Palm Bay, she
said. "Here, I'm kind of like the
principal."
Getting the kids there is only
half the battle. The $300 incen-
tive keeps the kids in the seats,
but reaching them academically
is another challenge.
Coming from an expensive pri-
vate .school, Mrs. Marcellus said
she has to change her approach
when she works with the About
Face students every Summer.
"At a Christian school, the par-
ents are really involved and want
to know everything their child is
up to in the classroom. Some of
these kids know more academi-
cally than their parents. It's a big
difference. You really get to see
both sides of the world," she said.
Getting to the students isn't
too difficult, she said, but first
they have to trust her. By being
honest with the students, Mrs.
Marcellus said they usually take
notice and respond pretty quickly.

Publisher

If he were President of the
United States, Bill Nelson,
Florida's senior United States
Senator, would set in motion an
energy plan that he says could
make it possible for automobiles
to travel 500 miles on a gallon of
gasoline.
Nelson who asserted that he
is not running for President -
spent much of his hour-and-a-
quarter "town hall meeting" at
the Polk County administration
building on Thursday talking
about energy policy.
He opened his remarks by say-
ing he is a sponsor of a Senate bill
which would prohibit the use of
federal funds to purchase proper-
ty by condemnation for the pur-
pose of selling it to private devel-
opers.
In a 5-to-4 decision last month,
the United States Supreme Court
ruled that government agencies
can take property through emi-
nent domain proceedings for pri-
vate development, as well as for
public use.
Prohibiting the use of federal
funds for such a purpose would be
an effective way to get around the
court's ruling, since federal funds
often are used in redevelopment
projects, he said.
Answering a question about
energy policy, Nelson said that
fuel economies undreamed of
today could be accomplished by
achieving three objectives:
Encouraging the production
of ethanol, an .alcohol product
which can be manufactured from
a number of renewable organic
resources and used in a blend
with gasoline. Although most fre-
quently associated with corn,
ethanol can be manufactured
from sugar cane (a major South
Florida crop), garbage, animal
wastes, or prairie grass.
Nelson said that he held back
his commitment on the adminis-
tration's energy bill until he got a
White House commitment to
begin a study of using sugar cane
to produce ethanol. That study
has begun, he said.
"Ethanol burns just as well"
while reducing America's reliance
on oil, 60 percent of which comes
from foreign countries, Nelson
said.
Mandating production of
more hybrid vehicles, which are
powered by both gasoline and
electric power, and automatically
switch from gasoline to electricity
when their batteries are suffi-
ciently charged. The relatively


The Polk County commission
should hold increases in next
year's county budget to four per-
cent, and allocate the balance of
revenues from a 12 percent in
increase in the property tax roll to
road projects, Commissioner
Wilkinson told his colleagues.
Property Appraiser Marsha
Faux has projected a 12 percent
increase in property values, and
simply maintaining a balanced
budget with that that increase in
revenues isn't a worthwhile goal,
Wilkinson said.
He suggested that the commis-
sion should find ways to reduce
expenses in the offices of each of
the five constitutional officers, as
well as in the county commis-
sion's operations.
Wilkinson said the commission
should look for savings equivalent
to a one-mill tax increase.
County Mgr. Mike Herr told
the commission a one-mill proper-
ty tax for roads would bring in
$300 million over 10 years.
Wilkinson said the state has
appropriated an additional $52
million for road projects in
District 1, which includes Polk
County.
The state will be asking 50 per-


small number of such vehicles on
the market today are capable of
achieving 50 miles per gallon,
Nelson said.
Encouraging the charging of
hybrid vehicles at night, allowing
them to run almost entirely on
electricity, because they are fully
charged by morning. Since only
two percent of America's electrici-
ty is produced with oil, the oil con-
sumed in charging batteries
would be insignificant, he said.
The combination of all three
initiatives could produce vehicles
capable achieving 500 miles per
gallon, Nelson asserted.
"I'm not running for President,
but that's what I'd do," he said.
His audience in the fourth floor
training room of the county
administration building also was
a hybrid, ranging from Polk's
Democratic faithful to members
of the all-Republican county com-
mission. Most of his comments
came in a question-and-answer
session.

Energy Bill
Filibuster

Nelson said that two weeks
earlier, he filibustered against a


cent matching funds for counties
for that money, he said, adding:
"We need to get our ducks in a
row."
He suggested the county
should have $5 million for match-
ing funds.
Polk County's per-mile con-
struction costs are about 50 per-
cent higher than the state aver-


Several residents of Wildwood
Drive, located just south of Lyle
Parkway on the north side of
Bartow, urged the city to remedy
storm drainage problems in their
neighborhood.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said the city has just received ver-
bal authority from the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District to begin work in the area.
Barbara Lassiter of 815
Wildwood Drive said streets in
the area drain into her back yard.
Two neighbors have had water
get into their homes, she said.


provision in the energy bill that
would have encouraged oil
drilling off Florida's Gulf coast.
"I had the floor and I was pre-
pared to stay there," he said.
The filibuster, which allows a
Senator to speak on a subject for
as long as he can stay awake,
"forces the majority to work with
the minority," he said.
As a Democrat, he is in the
Senate minority.
"The system is working," he
said.
To citizens who want to bring
about change in government, he
said: "You have the ballot box. We
operate under the rule of law."
As a member of Congress, he
said: "I call 'em as I see 'em. If I
agree with the President, I will
support him; if I disagree. with
him, I will oppose him."

FEMA: 'Inexcusable
Incompetence'

He was sharp in his criticism
of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency for its han-
dling of relief work after Florida's
four hurricanes last year.
"One of the biggest frustra-
tions I've had to deal with is the

age, he said.
A key to holding down costs is
to acquire cheaper right-of-way,
such as mined-over phosphate
land, he said.
Wilkinson said Polk County
should look at economies

commission as it searches for
ways for Polk County to save


Her husband, Steve Lassiter,
said they are willing to give an
easement for a drain pipe across
their property. He said they have
been asking for help from the city
for 12 years.
Bob Porterfield of 785
Wildwood Drive said that water
"runs down my property like a
river." Water from Natalie Drive
and Verona Drive drain onto his
property, he said. During last
year's hurricanes, a pump was set
up to keep water out of his neigh-
bors' homes, he said.

inexcusable incompetence of
FEMA," he said, citing "poor man-
agement of that agency."
. He prompted the Senate
Government Affairs Committee to
investigate the agency, citing
such things like millions of dol-
lars spent in Dade County, which
wasn't affected by any of the hur-
ricanes, and payment for funerals
for more than twice the number of
people killed by the storms.
"It's not that FEMA doesn't
have enough money," he contin-
ued. "We appropriated $8.5 bil-
lion.
"I will continue to try to beat
the door down," he asserted.
He urged local governments
that are having trouble getting
FEMA reimbursement for hurri-
cane recovery to contact his office.

'Immigration Policy
Not Working'

Nelson said he opposes blanket
amnesty for illegal aliens, but
asserted that it is unrealistic to
try to deport all the estimated
eight to 10 million illegals work-
ing in the country. To do so would

money.
He said that the Polk County
sheriff's office has a "brass to
deputies" ratio of 20 percent, com-
pared to as little as five to nine
percent in other counties.
His fellow commissioners said
Wilkinson should bring up his
money-saving ideas during work
sessions on the budget.


Wildwood Drive said his property
is the lowest in the area. "Water
stands there for weeks," and
undermines the road bed, he said.
DeLegge said that a drainage
plan has been drawn by the city
and approved by SWFWMD, and
money is in the budget to imple-
ment the plan. He told Lassiter
he would see that he gets a copy
of the plans.
Mayor Leo Longworth said it
took the city two years to get
SWFWMD approval.

The 1947 crash of something
in the desert 30 miles north of
Roswell, N.M. was an historic
event that gave rise to a cam-
paign of disinformation and
cover-up as alleged by eye-wit-
nesses to the crash and former
military personnel and their
family directly involved in han-
dling the Roswell 'Incident.'
To this day, almost 60 years
later, what exactly occurred re-
mains a mystery and an entire
sub-culture has grown up around
Roswell, sparking conspiracy
theories, accusations of military
and government cover-ups, in-
spiring dozens of movies, TV
shows, documentaries and semi-
nars.
"The Roswell Exhibit" ex-
plores the timeline and events of
the Roswell Incident, tracing the
people military and civilian
alike who were involved at
Roswell, their evidence and
based on their stories and sworn
affidavits, pieces together the
Roswell scenario.
The Roswell Exhibit will be
on display through Aug. 28 at
the Southwest Florida Museum
of History. The museum is open
Tuesday through Saturdays
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sun-
day from noon to 4'p.m.

I DON'T HAVE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY












BUT I'M ONE OF "JERRY'S KIDS'

I have Friedreich's ataxia. It's one of the over 30 other muscle
and nerve destroying diseases covered by the Muscular
Dystrophy Association in addition to the muscular dystro-

with other neuromuscular diseases the same help through
MDA clinics, summer camps and support groups, and the
same hope through MDAs worldwide research program.

School Crossing

Guards Still Needed


Polk County Sheriffs Office
School Crossing Section is look-
ing for "a few good men and
women" to work as school cross-
ing guards in locations across
Polk County for the school year.
With many vacancies to fill,
the Sheriffs Office will offer sev-
eral training opportunities over
the Summer so that new guards
can be ready for school when the
kids are.
Currently the School Crossing
Section includes more than 200
permanent part-time and substi-
tute crossing guards. The pro-
gram was developed in the early
1970s. There are more than 150
crossings throughout Polk
County.
School crossing guards receive
four hours of state-structured
classroom instruction, with an
additional two hours of on-the-
job training in accordance with
the Ramon Turnquiest Act.
School crossing guards receive
an additional annual two-hour


re-certification course prior to
each new school year.
The focus of the school cross-
ing guard is to encourage stu-
dents to cross at proper intersec-
tions. Guards also provide infor-
mation regarding pedestrian and
bicycle safety.
School crossing guards are
frequently, but not limited to, re-
tired residents who feel a sense
of community commitment.
Deputies often rely on school
crossing guards to advise them
of traffic problems in the commu-
nities surrounding school cross-
ings.
Crossing guards also have
been able to provide important
information regarding criminal
events occurring in their as-
signed areas.
For more information about
the School Crossing Section, or if
you are interested in becoming a
school crossing guard, call 297-
1112.


Florida's "green" budget

$664,000 will go to Polk County
to renovate five local parks and
enhance nearby communities by
increasing outdoor recreation

Ensure Safety On Your Si
By TERRY SCHIAVONE


National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration


Summer has officially begun.
The temperature is rising,
kids are celebrating their new-
found freedom and many fami-
lies are gearing up for a vacation
via the great American
highway.
Whether it's a cross-country
trip or a short jaunt to the
beach, the number of people
traveling by car is expected to in-
crease this summer to record-
breaking levels, despite the surg-
ing gas prices.
Americans will take an esti-
mated 328 million vacation trips
at least 50 miles from home,
which is up 2.3 percent from last
year.
Don't let an unwanted traffic
crash turn your summer fun into
a summer to forget. Wherever
your travels may take you, pre-
pare in advance and abide by all
the traffic laws to ensure a safe
arrival.
Keep in mind that laws, road-
ways and conditions vary from
state to state, and high-stress
driving situations can be com-
pounded by navigating unknown
streets with a car full of anxious
children or rowdy friends.

Floridians Urged to Lookout

For 'Affinity' Con Artists


Florida's Chief Financial Offi-
cer Tom Gallagher is cautioning
Floridians to be on the lookout
for con artists who claim to be
members of the same religious or
community-based group and use
that affiliation to defraud group
members.
Gallagher said "affinity" fraud
includes a variety of Ponzi
schemes in which affiliation is
used to gain trust.
About 400 Floridians alleg-
edly invested about $15 million
in fictitious "prime bank notes"
in this scheme that has now
been placed in receivership.
According to the U.S. Securi-
ties and Exchange Commission,
Learn Waterhouse, Inc., oper-
ated a Ponzi scheme that de-
frauded 1,900 investors in 39
states out of $56.5 million in
2003 and 2004. Learn Water-
house, Inc., allegedly depended
on investments from new re-
cruits to pay off earlier investors
and diverted millions of dollars
to the personal use of its officers
and directors.
"It's unconscionable that con
artists would exploit the faith,
trust, and friendship among
members of a church," Gallagher


said. "Floridians should be wary
of people who ask them to invest
money and use their shared
background as their primary
marketing tool. Always thor-
oughly research an investment
and its salesperson."
The civil suit against Learn
Waterhouse, Inc., claims that its
operators, one of whom used the
fact that his father was a pastor,
lured members of Florida
churches into the scheme. They
allegedly also quoted the Bible to
make sales.
"It's not just investment
scams that can hit religious and
community groups hard. Some
fraudulent charities may also
target groups they know have a
history of giving back to the com-
munity," Gallagher said, offering
these tips on how to avoid affin-
ity fraud:
Beware of anyone who drops
names or uses testimonials from
other group members.
Obtain a prospectus detail-
ing the risks in the investment
and procedures to get your
money out.
Ask for professional advice
from a neutral outside expert not
in your group an accountant,


4..Sin~h

~- ~Y~*


attorney, or financial planner -
to evaluate the investment.
Before investing any money,
call the Department of Financial
Services to find out if they are
registered to do business in your
state. Ask if the investment is al-
lowed to be sold. If one or the
other is not registered, inquire
further or walk away.
So far this year, the Office of
Financial Regulation, housed
within the Department of Finan-
cial Services, has received 111
complaints or referrals regarding
unregistered securities.
Those who suspect they may
be the victim of fraud should call
the Florida Department of Fi-
nancial Services Helpline at 1-
800-342-2762.
The Department of Financial
Services also has a Verify Before

www.fldfs.com to provide con-
sumers With inf!',rr,:,rr, .r. they
can use to-verify they are dealing

Gallagher said Floridians
should invest with Florida-li-
censed investment brokers and
companies.

Special
Summer
Recitals


Here are a few simple travel
precautions that will ensure
your summer doesn't turn into a
bummer:
Remember the three major
traffic offenses that can help you
get into a motor vehicle crash:
driving while intoxicated, speed-
ing and not wearing a seat belt.
While summer may entice you to
let your inhibitions down, don't
put lives at risk by disobeying
the traffic laws. Never drink and
drive. Obey all speed limits. And,
always wear a seat belt.
Designate a driver. If you
plan to consume alcohol while on
vacation, appoint a sober driver,
and never drive under the influ-
ence of alcohol or drugs.
Obey the speed limit. Ap-
proximately one-third of all fa-
talities that occurred in motor
vehicle traffic crashes in 2002
were speed related. Slowing
down not only saves lives, but it
also saves gas. Gas mileage be-
gins to decrease at speeds above
60 mph.
Study the traffic laws in
your chosen vacation area. Many
states have varying seat belt,
curfew or other laws that may
not exist in your hometown. And,
no matter what the local law, al-
ways wear your seat belt and


The Polk County Democrat


make sure all passengers in the
vehicle do the same.
Be aware of your surround-
ings and lookout for traffic signs.
Often times, drivers in unfamil-
iar areas will be oblivious to ap-
proaching traffic signs or stop-
lights, and this can lead to
crashes.
Map out the entire travel
route before leaving home. Pre-
pare easy to read directions,
eliminating the need for messy
folded maps while driving.
Only drive when well
rested. Every year, at least
100,000 automobile crashes,
40,000 injuries and 1,550 fatali-
ties result from sober drivers
who fall asleep at the wheel.
Be prepared for emergen-
cies. Make sure a spare tire is
handy and functional, carry a
cellular phone and prepare a
roadside assistance kit that in-
cludes a flashlight, tools and a
comfortable pair of walking
shoes, in case of a lengthy hike
to the nearest gas station.
Always practice safe driving
techniques minimize distrac-
tions such as loud radios, cell
phones and eating while driving.

mer, visit www.nhtsa.dot.gov.

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
'It Literally Kills Me'? Only Once, Bubba


Ready?
All together now:
Boy, we sure dodged the bullet
on that one.
Now we can all breathe a col-
lective sigh of relief.
Over the weekend, as
Hurricane Dennis stayed out to
sea (okay, out to gulf) as it lum-
bered past central Florida, I heard
a TV commentator observe that
those two sentences would be
spoken endlessly for a couple of
days.
It was, I suggest, a tacit
acknowledgment that the broad-
cast media are the keepers of the
spoken word. When the words
and phrases they choose are trite,
or even incorrect, they give legiti-
macy to the triteness or incorrect-
ness, and eventually, they
become part of our spoken lan-
guage.
The press most assuredly is the


guardian of the printed word, a
responsibility that we do not
always carry out faithfully.
When we allow ourselves to
use shorthand spellings like thru,
bar-b-q, or my special pet peeve,
till, we are part of the problem.
As to till, an unauthorized
contraction for until that I have
found in issues of this newspaper
as far back as World War II, it
should be 'til, the apostrophe tak-
ing the place of the omitted sylla-
ble, un.
In common misusage, till not
only omits the apostrophe, it
adds an extra letter to what's left.
Spelled that way, it's a verb,
meaning to plow the soil, or in
more or less slang parlance, a
noun synonym for cash register.
Typographical errors, as well
as errors in syntax, unfortunately
will be with us as long as the
printed language exists. I am


hardly blameless; indeed, it is a
rare story, column or editorial
that I write that doesn't have at
couple of errors in it; this is why
we have copy editors and proof-
readers in this business.
It is also why we have
spellcheck, which, our news staff
has discovered, only works when
you use it.
Back to the spoken word (we
would always rather criticize
someone else than ourselves,
right?) the misusage that I find
most offensive is literally.
If something literally kills me,
it's only going to happen once,
and you can take that to the bank,
Bubba.
In context, the word is figura-
tively, which admittedly takes a
little of the punch out of the sen-
tence. That's okay, at least it's cor-
rect, and it puts the listener on
notice that linguistic liberties are


being taken
Literally should be used only
to make it clear that we are not
speaking figuratively.
Loud music may be offensive,
but seldom induces pain in the
human ear, while high-pitched
sound can literally hurt a dog's
ears.
Few among us are blameless
when it comes to exaggeration,
even hyperbole. Used tastefully,
like mild expletives, it lends
color, if not sophistication, to our
communication.
But when we add literally to
the mix, as is becoming increas-
ingly common in television news-
casts, we do damage to the lan-
guage.
Okay, I've gotten that out of
my system.
Class is dismissed.
Figuratively speaking.

Ban Use of Public Funds

For Eminent Domain Abuse


The United States Senate has come up
with an excellent plan for minimizing the
damage from one of the Supreme Court's
worst decisions in years.
That decision allows local government
to condemn- private property = and. turn
around and, sell it for private development.
It is an obscene abuse of government
power, and we haven't heard anybody
except the majority of the Supreme Court
who thinks it's a good idea.
Senate Bill 1313, of which Florida's Bill
Nelson is a major sponsor, would prohibit
the use of federal funds to condemn pri-
vate property for private use. Since many
eminent domain proceedings are brought
in the name of. urban renewal, federal
funds u5dalyl;are involved.
The reasoning of the sponsors of the bill
is that without federal funding, few local
governments would undertake urban
renewal projects.
A possible problem we can see is that if
the Whoville City Council wants to buy
Cat in Hat's home and sell it to Discount
Daddy's Crate Store, and Discount
Daddy's is willing to front the money to
the city, the process might proceed with-
out federal funds.
Even so, the Senate is doing its part to
prevent this shameful abuse of the power
of condemnation.
We would like to see the Florida
Legislature adopt similar legislation, pro-


hibiting the use of state or local tax funds
to condemn private property for private
development.
We hope most cities and counties have
enough respect for property rights that
they would not abuse the power of emi-
nent domain to confiscate private property
for the purpose of selling it to another pri-
vate party. But the Supreme Court's ruling
says they may do just that, and undoubt-
edly some local governments have so little
integrity that they will do it.
The state, which grants the power of
condemnation to local governments, sure-
ly has the authority to limit that right by
control of the pursestrings.
Senate Bill 1313 deserves prompt pas-
sage.
Florida should enact similar legislation.

Save Your Sight With

Proper Sunglasses Use


Do you know the vital role
that sunglasses play in protect-
ing your eyes?
The latest sunglasses are
more than a fashion accessory
ior savvy women and men of all
ages; they have become increas-
ingly important for individuals
involved in outdoor sports and
for those who spend time in the
sun.
During the last year, some in-
novative green lenses have been
introduced that not only protect
the eyes from UV (ultra violet)
light, but also may improve a
golfer's game, including his put-
ting, by increasing the contrast
while reducing the reflections
back into the eye.
According to the experts at
Lighthouse International, sun-
glasses prevent damage to the
eyes from the sun that could-be
permanent, keeping certain
wavelengths of light from enter-
ing the eye.
Among their many attributes,
they can reduce the amount of
light entering the eye, protect
against harmful UV light, de-
crease glare and increase con-
trast.
For these reasons, the Light-
house urges everyone to don a
pair of sunglasses whenever they
are outdoors, and particularly
during long hours spent in the
intense summer sun.
As research underscores, peo-
ple who spend excessive hours in
the summer sun may have an in-
creased risk in later life of devel-
oping age-related eye conditions
such as macular degeneration.
Moreover, prolonged exposure
to UV light has been linked to


other eye conditions, including
cataracts and corneal problems.
Here are some tips for select-
ing the correct pair of sunglasses
from the experts at Lighthouse
International:
A dark lens does not neces-
sarily have UV protection. The
key characteristic to look for is
an indication that the lenses ab-
sorb 99 to 100 percent of UV
light, particularly UV-B. An ul-
traviolet-blocking coating also
can be placed on any lens, re-
gardless of the degree of tint.
However, a coating does not
block as much UV light as the
protective lens.
Whether or not you have vi-
sion problems, you may have dif-
ficulty adapting to abrupt
changes in light levels, such as
when entering a movie theater.
Wearing sunglasses outdoors
will help to decrease the adjust-
ment time indoors. For those
with a vision impairment, with-
out the use of absorptive lenses
(sunglasses), it may take from
five to 30 minutes to adjust to
lighting changes.
If you have a vision impair-
ment, speak with your eye care
professional to learn which sun-
glasses best suit your needs. Ab-
sorptive lenses come in a wide
array of tints, with varying de-
grees of light transmission. They
are available in various designs
that can fit over your glasses,
slip behind regular glasses, clip
on or flip up.

Mrs. Odden, who had previ-

Mrs. Marcellus wishes the

undermine some industries, he
said.
"Our immigration policy is not
working in this country," he said.
"We've got to protect the country,
but realize that you can't deport
10 million people."
He said he favors a proposal to
grant "permanent resident sta-
tus" to immigrants who have
become productive workers.,
Nelson said that the issue of
illegal immigrants had been
raised by the audiences in four
out of five town hall meetings
over the course of three days.

Wants More
CDBG Funds

Asked about discrimination,
he said: "Discrimination is here;
we've seen it in its ugliest forms."
Simply passing civil rights
and voting rights bills does not to
an end to prejudice, he said.
"We still have violations.
That's what makes my job so
interesting."
He said he had been criticized
for speaking in support of a for-
mal public apology by the Senate
for never passing an anti-lynch-


ing law.
The Bush administration has
recommended cutting funds for
the Community Development
Block Grant program, which
channels federal funds to low
income neighborhoods.
Nelson said he hopes Congress
will restore CDBG funding to last
year's level of $4.5 billion.

Citrus Tariffs
Vital To Florida

He was adamant on protecting
the Florida citrus industry from
being destroyed by Brazilian
imports by keeping import tariffs
in place.
"Florida citrus interests are
threatened with extinction," he
said.
He credited the Florida citrus
industry's advertising program
with making orange juice "a sta-
ple on our breakfast table."
He said Brazil wants import
tariffs removed, something he
said could "run the Florida citrus
industry out of business" because
Brazilian labor and land costs
are cheap by American stan-
dards.
Brazil produces about 60 per-

cent of the world's supply, export-
ing to countries around the
world, while Florida produces
about 40 percent, most of which
is sold in the United States, he
said.
Nelson said he discussed that
issue with the president of
Brazil.
"He was very arrogant," and
suggested that Florida growers
should move Brazil to take
advantage of cheap land 'and
labor.
As to removal of citrus tariffs,
Nelson vowed: "I'm simply not
going to let it happen."
Nelson said he supports the
Central American Free Trade

fit Florida and the country.
"It also will strengthen fledg-
ling democracies in Central
America," he said.

Upcoming Road Races

In Tampa Announced


The 2005-2006 race lineup
has been announced by Motion
Sports Management (MSM), a
St. Pete-based road race man-
agement and triathlete coaching
group.
Now in its third year of opera-
tion, MSM has introduced the
St. Pete Beach Classic, rejuve-
nated the Bay To Bay race while
raising funds and awareness for
local charities.
MSM presents four events for
the Tampa Bay area. Kicking off
the season will be the Tampa Po-
lice Memorial Run on Oct. 8 in
downtown Tampa. On Nov. 12,
the PACE 5K takes to the
streets at Centro Ybor in Ybor
City. The St. Pete Beach Classic
10K and 5K returns for its third
year Jan. 14. The season finale
is March 19 with the reincarna-
tion of the Bay to Bay 12K and
5K in St. Petersburg.
The Police Memorial Run
was founded eight years ago to
help raise funds to build a new
memorial tribute to officers slain
in the line of duty. After quickly
accomplishing that goal the mis-
sion was expanded to provide
scholarships for the children of
slain officers as well as other
Tampa law enforcement depend-
ents.
MSM will be providing logis-
tics, finish line and media con-
sulting for this year's Police Me-
morial 10K and 5KI
The Prostate Awareness
and Cancer Education (PACE)
Race 5K run/walk series is be-
coming one of the largest na-
tional prostate cancer awareness
events. Through the Prostate
Cancer Awareness program, mil-
lions of men have received free
screenings at testing sites across


the country, providing assistance
in early detection, which in-
creases survival rates.
MSM will provide marketing,
media, logistics and finish line
support for the year's event.
The third annual St. Pete
Beach Classic 10K and 5K will
be held on a new course and
venue due to the growth experi-
enced in year one and two. Bene-
fiting the St. Pete Free Clinic
and the St. Pete Beach Recrea-
tion Department, the St. Pete
Beach Classic draws runners
from around the Southeast.
The event offers a fun filled
family friendly weekend with a
health and fitness expo, commu-
nity beach bonfire and huge post
race party.
The Bay to Bay race was re-
introduced to the Florida run-
ning community in early 2005 af-
ter an eight year hiatus. More
than 1,500 runners took to the
streets to enjoy the time-honored
course, which runs point to point
on 1st Avenue South from Boca
Ciega Bay in the western section
of St. Pete finishing on The Pier
in downtown.
The race was a landmark
event in St. Petersburg for more
than 20 years before being dis-
continued in 1997.

Codling Moth Found in South African

Oranges, Import Banned in Florida


A temporary ban on the im-
port and sale of South African
Clementine oranges has been in-
stituted due to the discovery ear-
lier this month of live larvae of
the false codling moth in ship-
ments received at California bor-
der stations. Other citrus-pro-
ducing states, including Califor-
nia and Arizona, have taken
similar measures.
,"We are very concerned about
the potential impact this insect
could have on Florida agricul-
ture if it were to escape into the
environment," Florida Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "This is clearly a pest
that we do not want in Florida
because of our important crop di-
versity and climate."
s Last week, the Department is-
sued temporary stop-sale and
hold orders on South African
Clementine oranges in wholesale
and retail markets in Florida
while the Department conducted
inspections in these facilities.
Inspections have been completed
and no live larvae were found;
however, 12 dead larvae, were
discovered.
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture has not issued a recall on
the citrus. The agency has, how-
ever, changed the treatment pro-
,tocollfor future imports of South


African Clementine oranges be-
cause the current protocol is not
adequate to prevent the possible
introduction of the false codling
moth.
Fruit that is currently under
stop-sale and hold orders in Flor-
ida must be shipped out of state
or destroyed because it was not
adequately treated.
Prior treatment protocols re-
quired the fruit to be held in cold
treatment (31 degrees F) for a
22-day period in its country of
origin, or in transit, prior to arri-
val in the United States. New
protocols will require shipments
to undergo a three-day pre-chill-
ing period in South Africa and a
24-day cold-treatment period.
Florida will not accept South
African Clementine oranges un-
til certification is received that
the product has been treated in
accordance with the new proto-
col.-
The false codling moth has
never been found in the United
States prior to the recent discov-
ery. It has been recorded from
sub-Saharan tropical Africa, and
on Madagascar and the African
islands of St. Helena, Reunion,
and Mauritius. The false codling
moth is a small black moth ap-,
proximately 1/2 inch in size.
Single 'eggs are laid on fruit


and neonate larvae emerge, wan-
der the area and make an entry
wound. Larvae, about 1/2 inch
long, develop within the fruit
and then exit and drop to the soil
to begin construction of a cocoon
from which the adult moth
emerges.
Larvae feed on several kinds
of fruit and other crops, includ-
ing citrus, peach, avocado, cus-
tard apple, guava, persimmon,
pomegranate, olives, mangos-
teen, cotton, Sorghum, okra, cas-
tor-oil seed (Ricinus), and corn.
More than 50 kinds 'of fruit,
have been recorded in Africa as
hosts of this species.
Larvae feed within the fruit of
the host plant, usually with little
evidence on the outside of the
fruit until the inside is heavily
damaged. The moth's impact 'on
citrus in Africa has been devas-
tating. As a. tropical species, the
moths typically have several
generations per year.
It is unlikely that the species
could survive outside of the trop-
ics, but could become established
in Florida.
Anyone who finds larvae in
Clementine oranges is urged- to
call the Department's toll free
helpline number at 1-888-397-
1517 or visit http://www.doacs.

Protect Pets In Emergencies


July 11, 2005 The Polk County Democrat


Pets enrich the lives of individ-
uals and families in more ways
than can be counted. In turn, pets
depend on their masters for safe-
ty and well-being.
The American Red Cross offers
the following tips to keep pets
safe during an emergency:
In the event of a need to
evacuate, take your pets ,with
you. Leaving them behind can
result in injury, loss or worse.
Contact hotels and motels outside
the area to check policies on
accepting pets and restrictions on
number, size, and species. Ask if a
no pet policy can be waved in an
emergency. Keep a list of pet
friendly places, including phone
numbers with other disaster
information and supplies. If you
have notice of a disaster, call
ahead for reservations.
Ask friends, relatives or oth-
ers outside the affected area if,
they can keep your animal. If you
have more than one pet, they may
be more comfortable if kept
together, but be prepared to
house them separately.
Prepare a list of boarding
facilities and veterinarians who
could shelter animals in an emer-


agency. Include all 24-hour phone
numbers.
Ask local animal shelters if
they provide emergency shelter or
foster care for pets in a disaster.
Animal shelters may be overbur-
dened caring for the animals they
already have, as well as those dis-
placed by a disaster, so this
should be your last resort.
Assemble a pet disaster sup-
ply kit including medications and
medical records, a first aid kit,
sturdy leash, harness and carrier,
current photos, food, water,
bowls, cat litter and pan, a can
opener, information on feeding
schedules and behavior problems,
the veterinarian's number, pet
bed and toys.
In the case of advanced
warning issued, call ahead to con-
firm emergency shelter arrange-
ments for you and your pets.
Bring all pets inside so that you
won't have to search for them if
you evacuate. Make sure all dogs
and cats are wearing securely fas-
tened collars with up-to-date
information.
Never leave animals unat-
tended.
Birds should be transported


in a secure travel cage or carrier.
During warm weather, carry a
plant mister to mist the birds'
feathers. Do not put water inside
the carrier during transport.
Provide a few slices of fresh fruits
and vegetables with a high water
content. Have photo identifica-
tion and leg bands. If the carrier
does not have a perch, line it with
paper towels, and change them
frequently. Try. to keep the carrier
in a quiet area. Do not let birds
out of the case or carrier.
Snakes can be transported in
a pillowcase, but they must be
transferred to a more secure
housing when they reach the
evacuation site. If your snakes
require frequent feedings, carry
food with you. Take a water bowl
large enough for soaking and a
heating pad. When transporting
house lizards, follow the same
directions as for birds.
Small mammals should be
transported in secure carriers
suitable for maintaining the ani-
mals while sheltered. Take bed-
ding materials, food bowls and
water bottles.


Citrus Canker Found at UF Facility,

Will Halt Numerous Experiments


By TOM NORDILE
University of Florida
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences

Citrus canker, one of the most
destructive diseases affecting
Florida's $9 billion citrus indus-
try, has been found in a Univer-
sity of Florida citrus research
grove at UF's Indian River Re-
search and Education Center, or
IRREC, near Fort Pierce.
The discovery, confirmed by
the Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services,
Division of Plant Industry, will
likely require officials to destroy
all of the citrus trees in IRREC's
groves, halting all citrus re-
search projects there, said Brian
Scully, director of the center and
a professor of horticulture with
UF's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, or UF/IFAS.
"This canker infection, though
contained in the early stages,
will temporarily halt all of our
citrus research projects at the
center," Sciffyl said. "It will take
us a number of years to recover,
but ultimately this setback will
offer us a fresh start and im-
proved groves in which to con-
duct research. /
"However, we will continue to
conduct our collaborative re-
search in commercial groves
with the cooperation of private
industry," he added.
The disease, caused by bacte-
ria in the genus Xanthomonas,
can affect all citrus varieties, in-
cluding grapefruit, oranges and
tangerines, which are grown at
IRREC, Scully said. Trees af-
Tected by the disease develop
small brown lesiohs on leaves,
stems and fruit. Citrus canker


eventually reduces tree produc-
tivity if left unchecked.
IRREC employees discovered
the outbreak during a voluntary
grove inspection, he said. UF/
IFAS officials immediately re-
ported the discovery to the Divi-
sion of Plant Industry, which is
responsible for the state's Citrus
Canker Eradication Program.
UF/IFAS will cooperate fully
with DPI to address the situa-
tion, said Jimmy Cheek, UF sen-
ior vice president for agriculture
and natural resources. Mapping
efforts by the Citrus Canker
Eradication Program will estab-
lish the extent of the infection
and determine which groves will
be affected.
"Our personnel will assist DPI
in identifying all infected trees,"
Cheek said. "After that, we'll
cope with the loss of any trees
that may occur. We now under-
stand a little better what citrus
growers go through when they
face a canker outbreak."
State citrus canker eradica-
tion procedures require the de-
. struction of all infected citrus
trees that are found, as well as
any citrus trees located within
1,900 feet of infected citrus trees,
Scully said. These measures
minimize the chances the highly
contagious disease will spread to
other sites.
Currently, six IRREC faculty
and their collaborators from
other UF/IFAS facilities are con-
ducting more than two dozen ex-
periments in the research
groves, some using trees planted
30 to 50 years ago, he said.
Citrus research efforts at IR-
REC emphasize plant breeding,
entomology, pathology and virol-
ogy, soil and water science, plant


nutrition and irrigation and
post-harvest physiology, Scully
said.
"It is difficult to quantify the
loss in terms of time, monetary
value aind the potential impact
that our research findings have
on the statewide citrus indus-
try," Scully said.
In addition, citrus research
programs at the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture Horticul-
tural Research Laboratory adja-
cent to IRREC are vulnerable to
the effects of the canker infection
in the IRREC groves, said Har-
old Browning, statewide coordi-
nator for UF citrus programs in
teaching, research and exten-
sion.
Scully said he believes the
disease did not reach IRREC via
human activity.
The bacteria that cause citrus
canker can spread on air cur-
rents, in rainwater, and on peo-
ple, animals, plants and farm
equipment, Scully said.
Ongoing canker sanitation
and decontamination efforts will
be stepped up at UF's other cit-
rus research units, including the
Citrus Research and Education
Center in Lake Alfred and the
Southwest Florida Research and
Education Center in Immokalee,
said Browning, who directs the
Lake Alfred center.
"There is no reason to suspect
that citrus canker would have
reached other IFAS facilities by
way of the Indian River Re-
search and Education Center,
thanks to the many safeguards
we have in place," Browning
said. "But with canker in many
areas of the state, ongoing vigi-
lance is necessary."


Sandbagging Can

Help Prevent Flooding


PEOPLE WHO READ
NEWSPAPERS ARE











It all starts with Newspapers


Polk County Board of County
Commissioners' public safety di-
vision is working to educate citi-
zens on the proper sandbagging
methods for property protection.
With this year's hurricane
season already in full swing, and
citizens already experiencing
flooding, sandbagging has 'be-
come a necessity in inundated
areas.
To protect against water dam-
age, follow these simple sand-
bagging techniques.,
At the area where water can
enter a structure:
If not working on concrete, a
small ditch should be dug just
deep enough to go below ground
level. The ditch should be back
far enough from the entrance to
allow room to place pumps into
the protected area. The edge of
the visqueen should be placed in
the ditch as a bottom layer.
Place the first row of sand-


bags in ditch, fold visqueen over
the top of first row, place a sec-
ond row of bags on top, fold
visqueen back over, place a third
row of bags on top, and so on.
This creates an "S" pattern with,
the visqueen.
Depending on the size of the
barrier, one or more submersible
(sump) pumps should be utilized.
The. barrier will not completely
stop water from entering the
protected area. However, with
the proper placement of bags,
visqueen and sump pumps, wa-
ter, in most cases, can be re-
moved quickly.
For more information on
sandbagging your property, visit
www.polk-county.net.

other disaster related informa-
tion, call the Citizen's Informa-
tion Line 'at 534-0321 or toll free

Prepare For Storms Now


Now that Floridians have
again been close to a store,
Federal Emergency Management
Agency offers the following tips
for a safer hurricane season:
Be sure to have enough water:
One gallon of water per per-
son per day, for drinking and san-
itation.
Children, nursing mothers,
and sick people may need more
water.
If you live in a warm weath-
er climate more water may be
necessary.
Store water tightly in clean
plastic containers such as soft
drink bottles.
Keep at least a three-day
supply of water per person.
Have enough food on hand:
Store at least a three-day
supply of non-perishable food.
Select foods that require no
refrigeration, preparation or
cooking and little or no water.
Pack a manual can opener
and eating utensils.
Choose foods your family will
eat such as: ready-to-eat canned
meats, fruits and vegetables, pro-
tein or fruit bars, dry cereal or
granola, peanut butter, dried
fruit, nuts, crackers, canned
juices, non-perishable pasteur-
ized milk, high energy foods, vita-
mins, food for infants and com-
fort/stress foods.
Make an emergency first aid
kit:
- In any emergency a family
member or you yourself may be
cut, burned or suffer other
injuries. If you have these basic
supplies you are better prepared
to help your loved ones when they
are hurt.
Remember, many injuries are
not life threatening and do not
require immediate medical atten-
tion. Knowing how to treat minor
injuries can make a difference in
an emergency.
Consider taking a first aid
class, but simply having the fol-
lowing things can help you stop
bleeding, prevent infection and
assist in decontamination.
Things von should have:
Two pairs of Latex, or other
sterile gloves (if you are allergic
to Latex).


Sterile dressings to stop
bleeding.
Cleansing agent/soap and
antibiotic towelettes to disinfect.
Antibiotic ointment to pre-
vent infection.
Burn ointment to prevent
infection.
Adhesive bandages in a vari-,
ety of sizes.
Eye wash solution to flush
the eyes or as general decontami-
nant.
Thermometer
Prescription medications you
take every day such as insulin,
heart medicine and asthma
inhalers. You should periodically
rotate medicines to account for
expiration dates.
Prescribed medical supplies
such as glucose and blood pres-
sure monitoring equipment and
supplies.
Things it may be good to have:
Cell phone
Scissors
Tweezers
Tube of petroleum jelly or
other lubricant
Non-prescription drugs:
Potassium Iodide
Aspirin or nonaspirin pain
reliever
Anti-diarrhea medication
Antacid (for upset stomach)
Syrup of Ipecac (use to
induce vomiting if advised by the
Poison Control Center)
Laxative
Activated charcoal (use if
advised by the Poison Control
Center)
Recommended Supplies to
Include in a Portable Kit:
Water, amounts for portable
kits will vary. Individuals should
determine what amount they are
able to both store comfortably
outside the home and be able to
transport to other locations
Food, at least a three-day
supply of non-perishable food
Battery-powered radio and
extra batteries
Flashlight and extra batter-
ies
First Aid kit
Whistle to signal for help
Dust mask or cotton T-shirt,
to help filter the air
Moist towelettes for sanita-


tion
Wrench or pliers to turn off
utilities
Can opener for food (if kit
contains canned food)
Plastic sheeting and duct
tape to shelter-in-place
Infant formula and diapers,
if you have an infant
Garbage bags and plastic ties

Prepare For Health During Hurricane Season


As hurricane season has
begun, the Department of
Children & Families is urging
Floridians to mentally prepare
themselves for what is expected
to be a stressful period.
"The psychological effects of
last year's storms are still being
felt by many Florida residents,"
DCF Secretary Lucy D. Hadi said.
"Once again, DCF is prepared to
offer disaster mental health ser-
vices if the need arises again this
hurricane season."
The Department's Mental
Health Program Office offers the
following self-help tips for resi-
dents to alleviate hurricane-relat-
ed stress:
Have a hurricane prepared-
ness plan for you and your family.
Be aware of public emer-
gency resources available in your
community.
Draw on the support of your
family, friends, neighbors and
clergy.
For parents, know that chil-
dren are affected more by your
reactions and that of other adults
to an emergency than the emer-
gency itself. Be mindful of your
behavior during that time.


Optimal physical and psycho-
logical health before and during
hurricane season are important.
Rest, exercise and maintain a
healthy diet. Strive to find a bal-
ance between quiet 'time and
activity.
Try to maintain personal and
family routines as much as possi-
ble.
Some residents of hurricane-
impacted areas will require help
in coping with storm-related
stress. Ready to follow up on its
work last year, Department staff
is prepared to provide them crisis
counseling.
Disaster mental health ser-
vices last year were funded upon
DCF's request by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency.
Services this year would again
be contingent on FEMA funding
that DCF would seek in the event
of a major storm causing wide-
spread damage.
Crisis counseling is short-term
help for individuals trying to
recover from traumatic events.
While working in storm-dam-
aged areas last year, counselors
found many hurricane victims
suffering from increased stress


levels, anxiety, depression and
other conditions requiring more
in-depth help.
DCF responded with Project
Recovery, a program to prevent or
treat situational stress, and mal-
adaptive and addictive behaviors.


Seniors:
List of prescription medica-
tions including dosage in your
supply kits. Include any allergies.
Extra eyeglasses and hear-
ing-aid batteries.
Extra wheelchair batteries or
other special equipment in your
supply kit.
A list of the style and serial
numbers of medical devices such
as pacemakers in your emergency
supply kits.
Copies of medical insurance
and Medicare cards.
List of doctors and emer-
gency contacts.
For People with Disabilities:
Create a support network to
help in an emergency.
Tell these people where you
keep your emergency supplies.
Give one member of your
support network a key to your
house or apartment.
Contact your city or county
government's emergency informa-
tion management office. Many
local offices keep lists of people
with disabilities so they can be
located quickly in a sudden emer-
gency.
Wear medical alert tags or
bracelets to help identify your dis-
ability.
If you are dependent on dial-
ysis or other life sustaining treat-
ment, know the location and
availability of more than one
facility.
Show others how to operate
your wheelchair.
Know the size and weight of
your wheelchair, in addition to
whether or not it is collapsible, in
case it has to be transported.
Additional Supplies for People
with Disabilities:
Prescription medicines, list
of medications including dosage,
list of any allergies.
Extra eyeglasses and hear-
ing-aid batteries.
Extra wheelchair batteries,
oxygen.
Keep a list of the style and
serial number of medical devices.
Medical insurance and
Medicare cards.
List of doctors, relatives or
friends who should be notified if
you are hurt.

Last year thousands of Florida
residents learned that hurricanes
threaten not only coastal commu-
nities but also inland areas.
Hurricane season started June
1 and the time to prepare is now.
Planning ahead and making pro-
visions for your family's needs
can make a big difference in how
you cope in a hurricane situation.
State Farm, Florida's largest
property insurer, offers the fol-
lowing tips:
Prepare a hurricane survival
kit. Stock it with water, non-per-
ishable food, first aid supplies,
prescriptions and other medi-
cines, radio and flashlight, cloth-
ing and bedding, emergency sup-
plies/tools and special items.
Complete a home inventory.
An' accurate inventory and proof
of ownership can make claim set-
tlement easier and faster. When
it is completed, be sure to keep
this inventory in a safe deposit
box or another location outside
your home. Visitors to state-
farm.corn can download a free
copy of "Property Matters," a
home inventory software package


for IBM compatible PCs.
Review your homeowners
insurance policy with your insur-
ance agent to make sure you have
sufficient coverage to rebuild
your life and home after a hurri-
cane. The typical homeowners
policy does not cover flood dam-
age. Check with your agent about
the availability of flood insurance
in your area
Identify escape routes from
your home and neighborhood and
designate an emergency meeting
place for your family to reunite if
you become separated. Also
establish a contact point to com-
municate with concerned rela-
tives.
Stock plywood and materials
you may need to board up win-
dows.

McCutchen Has Breakout

Game on Rookie Team


A month hasn't even passed
since Fort Meade product An-
drew McCutchen was selected
the 11th overall pick in the 2005
First-Year Player Draft by the
Pittsburgh Pirates, but the re-
cent high school grad is already
making an impact at the profes-
sional level.
The Pirates first-round selec-
tion, drafted as an outfielder
with a good bat and exceptional
speed, has played 10 games for
the Pirates' rookie team out of
Sarasota in the Gulf Coast
League (GCL).
After having a tough time in
his first few games, McCutchen
came alive on July 8 against the
GCL Red Sox. The 18-year-old


went five for five at the plate,
hitting two doubles and a two-
out, bases clearing triple to help
his team rally for a 9-8 win to
stay tied atop the GCL south di-
vision.
Through ten games
McCutchen is hitting an impres-
sive .382 (13-for-34) and is get-
ting on base 50 percent of the
time. He's scored nine runs al-
ready and has batted in six.
He has drawn eight walks
compared to five strikeouts. He
was caught stealing in his first
ever attempt, but has stolen two
bases since then.
Look for more updates about
the slugger from Fort Meade in
future issues.
