City Vows Opposition


To Garbage at Landfill


FIREFIGHTER JEFF BURNETT crawls among the children
Tuesday during the Bartow Fire Department's education days, giving
the kids a close-up look at his gear. Held each year during Fire


Prevention Week, the education days provide children with informa-
tion on fire safety and what they should do in case of fire..- (Staff

4-H Offe~rs ~idpn[~n


. The Bartow city commission
will send "a strongly worded let-
ter" to operators of the Cedar
Trail landfill on E.F. Griffin Road
and to the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection,
opposing the company's plans to
seek a state permit to accept
"commercial garbage."
Several neighbors attended
Monday's city commission meet-
ing to voice their support for the
commission's decision.
Owners of the landfill have
met privately with city commis-
sioners, one at a time, and said
they plan to apply to the FDEP to
expand the landfill to accept
garbage. At present, under a fed-
eral court lawsuit settlement, the
landfill accepts yard waste and
construction and demolition
debris, but not raw garbage.
Under the lawsuit settlement,
the landfill is prohibited from
accepting "household garbage," a
term which the operators have
told city officials allows them to
accept "commercial garbage."
"The deal was a Class 3 land-
fill," Commissioner Andy
Laurent said. (A Class 3 landfill
is prohibited from accepting
garbage.)
"The intent was to exclude
garbage," Mayor Leo Longworth
said.
"That unfortunate phrase
(household garbage) got into the
agreement," City Atty. George
Dunlap said.


"For the life of me, I don't
know how that got past all of us.
"Garbage is garbage."
Commissioner Rosie
Thornburg suggested that allow-
ing the facility to accept raw
garbage could constitute "a new
landfill," which is specifically
prohibited by the settlement.
Dunlap said he didn't think
that wording would apply.
He noted that the city's 10-
year agreement with Cedar Trail,
under which the city agreed to
use the landfill for Class 3 dis-
posal in return for a preferential
rate, has expired.
'When Longworth suggested
that the city send a letter oppos-
ing the move, Commissioner Pat
Huff added: "a strongly worded
letter," to be accompanied by a
formal resolution.
David Brewer, vice-president
of public affairs of the Bartow
Chamber of Commerce, present-
ed the commission with a resolu-
tion from the Chamber's board of
directors opposing the burying of
garbage at Cedar Trail.
It cited the proximity of the
landfill to the fastest growing
residential area of Bartow, as
well as to downtown Bartow,
Bartow Regional Medical Center,
and a planned new elementary
school.
Longworth said the
Chamber's resolution would be
forwarded with the city's letter
and resolution.


Ashley Godwin presented a
petition bearing about 100 signa-
tures of people who oppose the
burying of garbage at Cedar
Trail.
Gail Schreiber, a former city
commissioner who lives in
Highland Lakes Estates, the sub-
division which overlooks the
landfill, thanked the commission
for its action.
Joe Arline, president of the
Highland Lakes Homeowners
Assn., also thanked the commis-
sioners.
Rhonda Ovist, a Highland
Lakes resident, said she had
researched the Internet for infor-
mation on Republic Services.
"I suspect Republic Services is
not going to say: 'Oh, alright, we
were just kidding'," she said.
Refuse companies "make big
money by bringing in garbage.
They think they can win.
"This is not the first time you
have fought this landfill.
Demand that the state represent
our interests."
She said that landfills are a
deterrent to attracting new busi-
nesses.
Max Wilbanks said that
Republic "is a very large corpora-
tion. They do not have our inter-
ests at heart."
"We do not need garbage out
there," Gerald Cochran told the
commission.


Responsibility, Confidence and Life Rumors of Gang Fights,


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

From its beginnings as a corn
and tomato club in the midwest at
the turn of the 20th century, to
expanding across the world, 4-H
offers children the ability to learn
through hands on activities.
This week is 4-H week, cele-
brating the club.
Standing for Head, Heart,
Hands and Health, 4-H has
grown leaps and bounds from its
rural agricultural beginnings to
being one of the largest communi-
ty-based educational programs
offered to children.
With about 43 clubs and an
estimated 994 children partici-
pating, 4-H is a large part of the
life of many children in Polk
County.
"For many counties, the norm
has become school enrichment
programs, but here, the programs
are still community-based and
run by parents and volunteers,"
Cooperative Extension Agent
Nicole Walker said.
The University of Florida
through cooperative extension,


runs the 4-H program in most
counties in Florida. Similar
extension programs also run the
clubs in other states.
"Our basic mission is to offer
the knowledge and information
that is available on a university
level to the community, and 4-H is
the youth component of that," Ms.
Walker said.
And while 4-H has not separat-
ed from its agricultural roots, pro-
grams are now diversified to
allow for a variety of projects.
Ms. Walker said most projects
still fall into the animal science
category, which is beloved in Polk.
"I would say that is the most
popular, still," she said. "But
there is a lot of variety. One of the
projects that is getting very popu-
lar is sport fishing. That's some-
thing the whole family seems to
get involved in. Families can real-
ly gather around fishing. It's
something grandparents and
everyone can enjoy."
Another popular project for
Polk County children is sport
shooting, which Ms. Walker's
partner at the extension office
has personally been trying to


build up with grant monies.
And while sewing seems to be
lessening in popularity, Ms.
Walker said the individual family
resources projects are still popu-
lar.
"A lot of the projects center
around health and nutrition now,
and we've even had projects deal-
ing with mental health," she said.
Science and technology pro-
jects also are gaining in favor
among the club members.
"We are seeing more and more
mechanical projects and astrono-
my projects," Ms. Walker said.
While the majority of clubs are
general, some offer specialized
programs, such as the Bartow
Thunderhooves horse club.
Others, such as the Fort Meade
Community 4-H offers such
diverse projects as beef, wood-
working, cooking, rabbits, dogs,
hogs, crafts, horses and horticul-
ture.
Steve Rittall, leader of the
Imperial 4-H Club in Bartow, said
his club is a bit generalized, pre-
ferring hog and cattle projects,
and said he and other leaders
work together to offer children


the best experience in 4-H.
A self-proclaimed "city boy,"
Rittall found himself learning a
lot when he became involved in 4-
H more than 10 years ago.
"I think I have learned just as
much as some of the kids,", he
said.
While the club's focus is fun,
Rittall said he wants the children
to learn responsibility.
"If the kids and club concen-
trate on one area, there are a lot
of opportunities to learn and
become good in that area," he
said.
In an effort to make new chil-
dren and parents comfortable,
Rittall said his club offers meet-
ings and presentations with
breeders every year, prior to chil-
dren selecting a project.
"This lets the kids and parents
know what's involved with the
project, from the work to the
cost," he said.
And with an estimated 50 chil-
dren in the club, Rittall said with-
out parent support, he would be
lost.

Guns at BHSn Unfoundied


Rumors of impending gang
warfare at Bartow High School
are unfounded, as is a rumor that
he was roughed up or even
stabbed, BHS Principal Ron
Pritchard told the city commis-
sion Monday night.
Pritchard said rumors got out
of hand following a fight on the
campus on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
The trouble began, he said,
when two exceptional student
education (ESE) students, who
attend separate classes in an
ESE classroom but have lunch
with mainstream students,
"decided to form their own group
or gang," which they called
Knockout Boys, or KOB.
That day, they assaulted two
other students, and were arrest-
ed. As of Monday night, a week
after the incident, they were still
in jail, Pritchard said.
The next day, three more stu-
dents decided to get into a fight,
and all were arrested.
Two girls who got in a fight
over a boy were arrested.
"From there we started to get


all sorts of rumors," Pritchard
said.
In response to a rumor that
two Hispanic boys were nearing a
fight over a girl, the students
were called to the principal's
office, and counseled in the pres-
ence of a Spanish teacher,
Martha Laurent, to be sure that
they understood that campus vio-
lence would not be tolerated.
Among the rumors was that
Pritchard had been knocked
down by a student. One rumor
even had him stabbed, he said.
Neither was true.
Rumors began spreading that
rival gangs were going to bring
guns to school and have a fight.
Pritchard asked the Polk
County sheriff's department to
send its gang suppression unit to
the school, and the Bartow police'
department dispatched more offi-
cers to supplement the four
school resource officers regularly
assigned to BHS.
There were no further prob-
lems after the arrests, Pritchard
said.


He invited parents to visit the
campus to see for themselves
that everything is under control.
"The rumor mill is churning.
We take every rumor seriously. I
don't blame parents for being
worried," he said.
Among the rumors was that
the Bartow police department
and/or the Polk County sheriff's
department were calling parents
and urging them to keep their
children out of school.
It simply wasn't true,
Pritchard said.
Another story of a bomb threat
and evacuation of classes circu-
lated when a helicopter flew
overhead as students were leav-
ing the cafeteria, he said.
"There are 1,600 students at
that school who have not done
anything wrong.
"We've tried to put the word
out.
"We haven't found any guns.
"We don't have anything to
hide.

BESTT's monthly meeting had
an upswing in attendance
Tuesday night as parents who
were concerned about the rumors
of gangs and guns came to speak
to the administration.
Usually, only 10 to 15 parents
attend the meetings, but that
night there were more than 50
people.
Bartow High School Principal
Ron Pritchard began by giving a
rundown of the events that had
led to the rumors.
On Tuesday, Sept. 27, two
young men in the ESE depart-
ment were arrested for hitting
two other boys during lunch. The
assailants had dubbed them-
selves the Knockout Boys with
the purpose of randomly sucker-
punching other students.
The next day, three boys in the
same ESE class decided to fight
each other and were arrested.


Pritchard said that one of those
boys had wanted to call himself a
Knockout Boy, too.
There also were two more inci-
dents: two girls wanting to fight
about a boy and two boys wanting
to fight about a girl.

Rumors
One of the boys was Puerto
Rican and the other was Mexican,
and this had spawned a rumor
that the Puerto Ricans wanted to
fight the Mexicans at school, even
though the incident only involved
the two individuals who worked
out their problems, Pritchard
said.
Because of these disruptions,
and the growing rumors, the
administration switched from the
one-lunch schedule to a two-lunch
schedule.
However, the students were
upset with this decision. The 45-
minute lunch used in the one-
lunch schedule allowed them to
attend club meetings, get help.


from their teachers, and socialize
with friends with whom they did
not share classes, Pritchard said.
By Monday, weekend rumors
had exaggerated the Knockout
Boys into a full-blown gang that
was planning on bringing guns to
school.
Someone in a helicopter flying
overhead noticed many kids out-
side during lunch, and assumed
that the school was on lockdown
because of a bomb, which only
exacerbated the problem, he said.
Pritchard said that he could
understand the concerns of the
parents, because "the most pre-
cious gift you have is your chil-
dren."
Nothing happened on Monday,
however, and Pritchard said that
the rumors turned out to be noth-
ing but that: rumors.

Parental Concerns
The first parent asked what
the administration did when they
heard rumors of a gun.


Assistant Principal Mike
Butler explained the standard
operating procedures to the par-
ents, and said that the adminis-
tration investigates every rumor
they come across immediately.
IB Principal Ed Vetter said
that he had advised students over
the intercom to report any suspi-
cious activity immediately to the
main office or to the dean's office.
Also, on the back of their
school Il) badges, all students
have numbers for Crime Watch
and the school resource officers.
Another parent asked why no
letter had been sent home on
Friday to explain the situation.
Pritchard said that at that
time the administration had not
been extremely concerned, and
that most of the rumors were
spread and magnified over the
weekend. He was not sure what
he could have written in a letter
at that point to address the future

Dear Betty,
My mom used to make the prettiest
molded gelatin salads, but when I
try them, they don't turn out. Can
you help?
Woodland, Calif.
With just a few simple tricks,
you'll master pretty, deli-
cious and festive molded
salads just like Mom.
* Right sizing. To size the mold,
measure the number of cups of
water it holds. Use a mold that's
the size called for in the recipe.
a Mixing it up. Spritz the empty
mold with nonstick cooking spray
for easy unmolding. Use less water
when making the gelatin. For a
4-serving package, decrease the
water to 3/4 cup. So that fruits or
vegetables won't sink or float, let
the gelatin thicken a little in the
fridge before adding them.
* Creating layers. The first layer
should be set but not firm. If the
layers are too firm, they may sepa-
rate when unmolded. Touch the
gelatin if it's still sticky, it's
ready for another layer of cool,
slightly thickened gelatin.
a Setting up. Since a gelatin mold
takes longer to set from three
hours to overnight plan ahead
to make one.
mUnmolding. Before unmolding,
chillthe serving plate. The gelatin
shouldn't move in the mold or be
sticky to the touch. Wet the tip of
your finger and gently pull the
gelatin away from the mold. Dip
the mold in warm, not hot, water.
Lift it out and shake gently. Mois-
ten the serving plate with water so
it's easier to center the salad. Place
the plate on top of the mold and,
holding the plate and mold together,
turn it upside down. Shake a little

* Fruit facts. Fresh or frozen pine-
apple, kiwifruit, gingerroot, papaya
or figs are no-no's because they
contain an enzyme that keeps the
gelatin from setting. Drain all fruits
and vegetables well.

I'm bored with my usual recipe for

ideas?

these ideas for lively salads:
* Arrange an assortment of fruit -
fresh pineapple chunks, whole
strawberries, grape clusters on
a platter, and serve with an elegant

brown sugar.
* Scoop out watermelon, cantaloupe
and honeydew balls and let them
chill together. Just before serving,
sprinkle with crumbled bacon and
sliced green onions.
*Toss halved strawberries, sliced

Celebrate Change A Light Day And Save


In an effort to encourage
Floridians to conserve energy,
money and protect the environ-
ment, Governor Jeb Bush signed
a proclamation recognizing
"Change a Light Day."
Sponsored by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Energy and U.S. Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency,
Change a Light Day encourages
Floridians to pledge to change
one light in their home to an en-
ergy-efficient, Energy Star prod-
Suct.
"Lighting accounts for nearly
20 percent of the electricity we
use at home," said Department
of Environmental Protection Sec-
retary Colleen M. Castille.
"Switching to energy-efficient
lighting is an easy step Floridi-
-ans can take to conserve our en-
ergy resources, protect our envi-
ronment and save money on elec-
4ricity bills."
Florida joins the federal gov-
ernment and states across the
-country to celebrate Change a
Light Day, calling attention to


theimportance of using energy
wisely at home. Today marks the
official kickoff of the national
Energy Star Change a Light,
Change the World educational
campaign, encouraging Ameri-
cans to take a simple action to
help preserve energy resources
and protect the environment -
switch to energy-efficient light-
ing.
The national educational cam-
paign is run in partnership with
hundreds of retail stores, manu-
facturers, energy-efficiency or-
ganizations and State govern-
ments.
American households spend
more than $20 billion dollars a
year to light their homes, accord-
ing to statistics. Using energy-ef-
ficient lighting products reduces
energy consumption, generates
less air pollution and reduces
electrical bills.
If every household in Florida
changed just one light to an En-
ergy Star product, savings would
total more than $43 million in


energy costs annually, the U.S.
Department of Energy esti-
mates.
A government-backed pro-
gram, Energy Star helps busi-
nesses and consumers identify
energy-efficient products and
conservation measures for
homes and offices.
Lighting with the Energy Star
label uses one-third of the en-
ergy of standard lighting prod-
ucts and lasts up to 10 times
longer.
Light fixtures or bulbs that
have earned the Energy Star la-
bel prevent greenhouse gas emis-
sions by meeting strict energy ef-
ficiency criteria set by the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency and U.S. Department of
Energy.

Day pledge, visit http://www.en-

Juneteenth

Meeting Set
A Polk County Juneteenth
committee meeting will be held
on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 6 p.m. at
Polk Street Community Center
in Bartow.
The meeting will be held to
discuss activities for the annual
Juneteenth celebration.


Pete McNally, a nine-year vet-
eran of Polk County emergency
management department, has
been named the county's emer-
gency management director.
McNally was selected by a
panel of five interviewers from
various agencies.
He has earned' certifications
as a state and international
emergency manager. A state-cer-
tified public manager,, McNally
has a bachelor's degree in
mathematics and a master's de-
gree in public administration.
McNally joined the Polk emer-
gency management division after
a career as a military officer and
state employee.


For area who are employed by
the state of Florida, changes to
the state's healthcare and bene-
fits options this fall require so-
mething new researching and
value shopping.
Govenor Jeb Bush recently
published a statement to
all state employees encouraging
them to take a "fresh look at
their healthcare needs and the
medical options the, state is offer-
ing for 2006."
State employees living in Polk
County, for instance, may now
choose among six different
health plans, compared:with the
single option available previ-
ously.
The University of South Flor-
ida Lakeland has responded to
this challenge by providing its
employees with a "Benefits Fair"
as a way to make sense of the
changes introduced this year by
Govenor Bush.
Representatives from Blue-
Cross BlueShield of Florida,
AvMed and United HealthCare
participated in the fair, hosted
for USF Lakeland and Polk
Community College employees to
ease concerns and answer many
health-plan related questions.
"These families 'must take a
look at the new programs and
decide which will provide the
best care and protection for their
specific economic situation," said
Eve Underhill, USF Lakeland
human resources director. "I
would encourage them to shop
for their right fit."
"Finding the right fit can be
challenging, especially with
healthcare costs rising all
around us. That's why I suggest
that other state agencies think

The Home of Champions


Is As Safe As Ever


Bartow High School got another of its 15
minutes of fame this week, and it wasn't
the kind of fame that any school wants.
BHS Home ofChampions, host to one
of the world's best International
Baccalaureate programs, campus of more
National Merit Scholars than any other
school in Polk County made headlines
due to a small amount of campus violence
and a large dose of rumors.
As was reported in this newspaper on
Monday, and widely publicized by area TV
stations, there was a fight on campus last
Tuesday involving two ESE students who
decided to create their own two-member
gang, Knockout Boys. They hit. two other
male students, and were promptly arrested
and jailed. A week later, they were still in
jail.
The next day, three more students decid-
ed they wanted to share the notoriety, and
all three of them were arrested.
Two girls got into a fight over a boy. And
they were arrested.
And two Hispanic boys who appeared
headed towards a fight over a girl were
called to the principal's office and coun-
seled on the error of their ways. They part-
ed in peace.
That's what happened.
What didn't happen was:
An assault on Ron Pritchard, principal
of the school. He was neither knocked
down nor stabbed.
Wholesale packing of guns for a cam-
pus rumble between rival gangs.
Numerous rumors were pursued; not one
gun was found.
There was no bomb threat and no lock-
down, rumors prompted by a helicopter
flyover. (No, we can't make the connection
either.)
What did happen was:
Pritchard and his staff and faculty
took a zero tolerance position on violence,
and had all the miscreants arrested.
Both the Bartow police department
and the Polk County sheriff's department
sent additional officers to the campus to
supplement the four school resource offi-
cers regularly stationed at BHS.
Students came .forward to teachers
and administration with numerous
rumors, each of which was investigated.


What alsojhappened was that as rumors
spread, understandably nervous parents
removed some 300 students from the cam-
pus. The absences will be excused.
Not so many years ago, most schools
made every effort to keep their problems
secret, and visits to campus by outsiders
were not welcomed. Tolerated, but not
welcomed.
On Monday, Pritchard publicly invited
parents to drop in and stroll the hallways.
We took him up on that invitation.
We made an unannounced visit during
class change time the next day. Students
were walking to class, holding hands,
doing a little playful shoving, and general-
ly doing what students have done at high
schools since Socrates was an intern.
Are there, among Bartow High School's
1,600 students, some who are members of
teen gangs? If not, that probably would
make BHS the only high school in Polk
County to be so fortunate. But among the
many school organizations which take
advantage of a single lunch period for all
students to hold club meetings, not one is
a gang.
We have spoken both on and off the
record with school officials and police offi-
cers, and we're convinced that the situa-
tion is as Pritchard represents it. Bartow
High School has numerous fine students
and a few rotten apples.
Thanks to the zero tolerance policy on
violence, seven of the bad apples will not
be permitted to return to the BHS campus.
Ron Pritchard and his faculty and staff
performed admirably.
The Home of Champions remains a safe
environment.

which occurred when teachers had
to stop in the middle of instruction
for a class split by a lunch period.
Having only one lunch period
provides an extended period for
clubs to meet, and allows students
who ride buses to participate in a
greater variety of .activities than
they might otherwise be able to do
'if they had to meet after school.
As BHS grows, we have to try to
personalize instruction through
small learning communities and
schools within schools.
The safety and wellbeing of our
students is always of paramount
importance, and we will never fail
to appreciate the desire of parents
to make sure their children are safe
and well. We need to remember
that a small number of students
made bad decisions, and we cannot'
allow that small number of stu-
dents to stampede us into hastily or
rashly undoing decisions that were
made after thoughtful considera-
tion and study.
We value the input we receive
from the community of Bartow,
and from our parents.

BARTOW I read with interest
the article in Tuesday's Ledger ref-
erence the recent rumor battle at
Bartow High. School. I was
impressed by Bartow High
School's handling of the situation
by bringing in extra security for
just in case something did develop.
While impressed by that, I am
somewhat disenchanted by the fact
that 1,600 young adults are sched-
uled to eat lunch at one time in one
area each day.
If the students had staggering
lunch periods, it would reduce the
number of incidents that might
happen during a day of schooling.
It is my understanding that the one
A nch rule came with the IB
school's academic requirements
and that busing of students home
was a concern to the IB principal.
Many parents that I have talked
with believe the school should
return to staggered lunch periods
rather than the one lunch period.
I believe that as Bartow contin-
ues to grow and as more schools
are permitted to funnel into Bartow
High, there will only continue to be
problems if the principal doesn't
make a change such as the stag-
gered lunch. We have the IB school,
the charter school, a military school
coming and BHS students under
one roof.


It is na familiar theme for me:
wxve're all in sales.
Some of us are selling for our
employers; some of us are selling
for our competitors.
Salespeople are not just the
ones who take the order, or ring
up the sale.
Every person who makes the
customer feel welcome and val-
ued is a salesman for his employ-
er.
I met a salesman at Bartow
High School this week. He was a
student who opened a door for
me, smiled, and said "Hi," a gra-
tuitous courtesy. Some day he'll
be doing the same for an employ-
er.
People who are selling for the
competition are the ones who.
make it clear that your patronage
is not appreciated.
A survey of 230 shoppers


throughout the country by a New
Jersey outfit called MOHR Access
determined that the most aggra-
vating thing a salesperson can
say is "That's not my depart-
ment." That was cited by 29 per-
cent of those surveyed.
The message is clear: You're
not important enough to me to go
beyond the narrow parameters of
what I have to do to get by.
One of Frisbie's Laws, a
tongue-in-cheek declaration of
everything I've learned about
management in the past 41 years,
is: "Anyone who takes the atti-
tude 'That's not my job' does so
at the peril of finding new and
deeper meaning to those words."
The second most despised
response from a salesperson, at
25 percent: "If it's not on the rack,
we don't have it." Here's a better
answer: "I think all the merchan-


dise in that style/size/color is on
the rack, but if you'll give me a
minute, I'll look in the stock
room." The message: "I'm willing
to make an extra effort to meet
your needs, Customer."
Other responses to send your
customer into the arms of the
competition, according to the sur-
vey:
"That's the policy."
"I'm on a break."
"Ask that person over there.",
"I'm new here."
"You'll have to wait your
turn." ,
"The computer is down."
It is not always possible to give
the customer what he or she
wants, but it is always possible to
make the attempt.
"That's our policy, but if it's
important to you, I'll ask my
supervisor if we can work around


it."
On a break? You call that an
excuse for not helping a cus-
tomer.
"I'm afraid I'm not familiar

OUR READERS SAY

'Glut' of Landfill Space Exists


BARTOW Regarding the
Cedar Trail landfill's proposal to
begin accepting commercial
garbage, Republic Services, owner
of Cedar Trail, is a 'major corpora-
tion that makes decisions on the
basis of their mission for continued
growth, further control of the
waste management industry, and
increased profits, not the well-
being of the community.
While Republic Services would
have us believe that our communi-


ty "needs" a place to dump grow-
ing amounts of garbage, there is
actually a glut of available landfill
space nationally. A review of news
articles and the company's annual
report shows that Republic
Services is one of three national
corporations that control 50 percent
of waste management in the coun-
try. Republic Services wants com-
mercial waste at Cedar Trails to
raise profits, increase their share of
the market, and eliminate competi-


tion, not because there is nowhere
else for that waste to go.
There may be alternative ways
of managing local commercial
garbage that work better for our
community but may not serve the
interests of Republic Services
stockholders. Bartow residents
need to demand that all alterna-
tives are given full and equal con-
sideration.

OUR READERS SAY

Consider Multiple Lunch Periods


How many schools can channel
through one school with students
coming from across the county
without more and more incidents
of concern? Making changes to
keep our children safe at school
should always be our priority.
KATHY WALTZ

This is the response submitted by
Bartow High School Principal Ron
Pritchard:
I appreciate the support of the
community, parents, and school
board during the recent events at
Bartow High School.. We are happy
to have returned to our normal
routine of being "in class, on task
and learning."
The year the IB school debuted
at BHS, we had four lunch periods.
The one lunch period has nothing
to do with only IB, BCS, or any
other single aspect of Bartow High
School. It was a joint decision
reached after much discussion,
thought and research by the staff.
One of the most important
aspects of high school for the stu-
dents is being able to socialize and
spend time with their peers. It has
eliminated the aggravation of
teachers trying to teach through the
noise of students at other lunch
periods. It has reduced the inter-
ruption of the educational process

Be Aware Of Medicare Scams


Attorney General Charlie
Crist today warned Florida sen-
iors to be on the lookout for con
artists who may try to take ad-
vantage of consumers as they
shop for new Medicare prescrip-
tion drug coverage plans. *
Beginning Oct. 1, companies
could begin marketing their pre-
scription plans to Medicare re-
cipients across the country, al-
though actual enrollment in the
new plans will not begin until
mid-November.
Crist's office has received
complaints from seniors and
other consumers who say they
were contacted by companies
claiming that they were author-
ized or funded by Medicare to
make telephone or door-to-door
contact with beneficiaries to of-
fer assistance with the new
Medicare prescription drug cov-
erage.
Crist said consumers should
be aware that any unsolicited
personal contact may represent
an attempt to scam a Medicare
beneficiary. out of money or to
sell a product that may not be
suitable to meet the beneficiary's
needs.
"Sadly, there are those who
wish to take advantage .of our
neediest senior citizens," Crist
said. "Our citizens deserve the
confidence that the price they
are paying for pharmaceutical
drug coverage is the fairest pos-
sible price, not one that will re-
sult in high profits for shady
companies."
Crist encouraged Medicare re-
cipients to protect themselves
against these con artists, and
suggested the following tips for
avoiding the scam:
No payment for a Medicare
prescription drug plan should be
made before Nov. 15. Prescrip-
tion drug plans may begin mar-
keting now, but enrollment does
not begin until Nov. 15. '
Medicare beneficiaries
should never give any caller or
visitor their Social Security
number, bank account number
or personal financial informa-
tion.
No door-to-door solicitations
are permitted unless the Medi-
care recipient has invited the
caller to their home.
Telemarketers must comply
with federal and state do not call
laws.
When prescription drug
plan enrollment begins, Medi-

care recipients should make sure
they enroll with a prescription
drug plan approved by Medicare.
To verify that a plan has been
approved, consumers may call
Medicare's toll-free number at 1-

From May through August.
the Social Security Administra-
tion mailed application forms to
Medicare recipients who may
qualify for extra help with drug
plan costs.
Almost half of all Medicare
beneficiaries will receive an ap-
plication for extra help. The So-
cial Security Administration
may ask for general financial in-
formation on the extra help ap-
plication form, but will never ask
for specific bank account num-
bers, Crist said.
Around Oct. 15, the Centers
for Medicare & Medicaid Serv-
ices will send information to
Medicare recipients describing
the Medicare prescription drug
plans that will be available to
them.
If consumers have any ques-
tions related to the new Medi-
care prescription drug benefit,
they can contact the Florida De-
partment of Elder Affairs, which
operates the Serving Health In-
surance Needs of Elders
(SHINE) program to provide in-
formation on Medicare, Medicaid
and other specific senior issues.
Consumers may call the Elder
Help Line at 1-800-963-5337 to
obtain information.

Attorney General Charlie
Crist today recognized the Flor-
ida Coalition Against Domestic
Violence for i'ts efforts to protect
Florida's citizens who are threat-
ened at home..
During a meeting of the Flor-
ida Cabinet, Crist also intro-
duced a resolution designating
October as Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, reminding
Floridians of the importance of
fighting this crime.
Crist also praised the efforts
of Governor J'eb Bush and First
Lady Columba Bush for their
work and dedication to eradicate
domestic violence.
Florida was the first state to
allocate capited grants for domes-
tic violence shelters.
Since 1999, Mrs. Bush has
been a strong advocate for vic-
tims' rights, particularly domes-
tic violence.
"During Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, I urge
Floridians to reach out to domes-
tic violence victims and let them
know that help is available,"
Crist said. "Domestic violence is
a crime that must be stopped,
and there are things that each
one of us cam do to help. With
dedication and education, we can
increase safety for thousands of
our citizens and bring hope to
Floridians suffering at the hands
of someone the victim once
trusted."
According to the annual crime
figures for 2004, the number of
reported domestic violence of-
fenses decreased 0.8 percent in
Florida, arid arrests for these
crimes decreased 1.5 percent
from 2003.
However., more than 119,000
incidents of domestic violence
were reported, including 184
murders.
Florida Coalition Against Do-
mestic Violence offers a toll-free
domestic violence hotline (1-800-
500-1119) and serves as the pro-
fessional association for Florida's
41 ,domestic violence centers,
which serve 67 counties across
Florida.
The coalition also maintains a

concerns.
However, he said, if that
would have eased the fears of the
parents, he was sorry that he had
not done that.

ESE Students
Some of the parents were con-
cerned about the fact that most of
the arrested students were in the
ESE program and that a few had
previous criminal records. They
wondered why they shared lunch
with all of the regular students
when'ESE is separated for the
rest of the day, and why there
were criminals allowed in the
school.
BHS is a public school,
Pritchard said. Federal laws
mandate that ESE students have
regular lunches and that crimi-
nals be allowed to go to school.
Only particularly disruptive
students are sent to the Polk


Also, while individual crimi-
nal records are prohibited from
even the administration's eyes, to
protect the rights of the students,
Pritchard said that they do get
statistics, that there were fewer
criminals at BHS than most
schools in the county, and that
there were fewer criminals this
year than last year.
Teacher-representative to
BESTT Peggy Frisbie said that
there is a difference between vio-
lent 'students and criminal stu-
dents.
She told about a girl with no
prior problems, who one day
exploded with rage when she was
accidentally bumped by another,
student.
The girl lifted a desk over her
head and was about to bludgeon
the other student, when the stu-
dent with the worst criminal
record in the class stepped in,
calmed the girl down, and took
the desk from her.


about the students taking the
PCAT on Monday, the day
rumors were the worst and par-
ents were checking their children
out of school.
Pritchard said that the FCAT
students were isolated from the
disruption, and that students
who had wanted to check out
were allowed to do so prior to the
test.
Once the test began, some par-
ents came to get their children.
When the situation was
explained and they were told
that the only time those who
started the test and then quit
would be able to retake the FCAT
was in March, all of them decided
to allow their children to finish
taking the FCAT.
Students who left school prior
to starting the tests were allowed
to make up the test on
Wednesday and Thursday.

problems with the law outside FCAT Testing reassure the others that the

Dr. George I. Bradley, a bishop
and minister from Bradley spoke
passionately to the black and
Hispanic communities, and
encouraged them to continue
struggling against marginaliza-
tion at Bartow's annual Diversity
Luncheon at the Bartow Civic'
Center.
Dr. Bradley also briefly
touched on issues such as inte-
gration and affirmative action.
He said. that they should be
working for authentic integra-


tion, which he said was not the
movement of black to white, but,
rather is the movement of wrong
to right.
He also said that authentic
affirmative action was not prefer-
ences and quotas, but that it was
a plan to intentionally repair
what what was intentionally
inflicted.
Dr. Bradley ended by using
stories from the Bible that
demonstrated the need to serve
others in order to reach out to
others.
After his fiery closing, the
audience gave Dr. Bradley a
standing ovation.


Bartow's Community
Relations Committee, Bartow
Chamber of Commerce, and City
of Bartow sponsored the lun-
cheon.
The luncheon had been moved
to coincide with National Race
Equality Week, which began on
Sept. 25.
Two retiring charter members
of the Community Relations
Committee, Stacy Campbell-
Domineck of Polk Works and City
Commissioner Brian Hinton,
were presented with plaques to
thank them for their work by
Mayor Leo Longworth. .


Yellow Jackets Face

Miners In Close .Match-up


By JEFF THORNBURG

Friday night the Bartow Yel-
low Jackets travel south to
nearby Fort Meade for a match-
up against the reigning Class A
state champion Miners.
Kickoff at Frank S. Battle
Field is set for 7:30 p.m. and the
game will be broadcast on AM
1130 WBF.
Both teams are sporting re-
cords of 3-2, with Fort Meade
winning two straight, while Bar-
tow has dropped two in a row.
Fort Meade, ranked number
one in the state Class A polls,
enjoyed an open date last week
while the Yellow Jackets suf-
fered a district loss at Haines
City.
The Miners graduated 11 sen-
iors off their championship team;
fortunately, four out of five of
last year's starting. offensive
linemen return to the. Fort
Meade lineup.
Looking at the numbers, the
teams are very close.
Fort Meade is scoring an aver-
age of 21 points per game while
Bartow puts 18 points on the
scoreboard.
Both defensive squads allow


13 points per game.
The Miners' leading rusher is
junior Henry Grace, who has
scored six touchdowns and
gained 517 yards on 73 carries.
Right behind Grace in the
county rushing totals is Bartow's
Ryan Colson with 500 yards and
five touchdowns.
Although neighbors, these
teams have met only twice since
1996.
In 2001, Bartow won at home
16-3, then a year later at Fort
Meade the Miners enjoyed a 35-9
victory.
Other games around the
county include Auburndale at
Lake Gibson, Centennial travels
to Lakeland, Lake Region visits
Lake Wales, Winter Haven hosts
Haines City, Miami Pace is at
Kathleen, Celebration at Ridge
Community, and Mulberry trav-
els to Frostproof.
A big district showdown in
Class 1B, second-ranked Evan-
gel Christian hosts number-one-
ranked St. Petersburg Keswick
Christian and Calvary Christian
is at fifth-ranked Santa Fe
Catholic.


Pellerito Continues To,

Improve Under Tommy King


Rich Pellento. driving his Wa-
ter One Hidell Eyster Interna-
tonal Chevrolet. continues to
gain momentum in the FasTruck
series.
Pellerito. who has put effort
into stepping up his truck pro-
gram, took another step Satur-
day night at the Auburndale
Speedway. While suffering a
problem in qualifying after turn-
mg some solid times in practice,
Pellerito started 16th in the 50
Lap slugfest.
The tight quarter-mile speed-
plant makes for some rough and
tumble racing, but Pellerito just
wanted to stay out of trouble as
he tried to head to the front.
After several previous races
that saw him fall a lap down
early,,Pellerito remained on the
lead lap and made some good
moves to get up to the 11th spot.


A close call on lap 31 saw him
spin while trying to make a pass,
but he recovered to regain that
11th place finish.
"I again have to thank Tommy
King for his help and then a spe-
cial thanks to the other drivers
that have allowed me to learn
and have raced me clean and
many have helped along the
way," Pellerito said.
The next event for the Pel-
lerito team will be another stop
at the Charlotte County Speed-
way near Punta Gorda.
The season is winding down
with just three races remaining.
Pellerito wants to capture
three top tens and maybe a top
five.
He will then continue prepar-
ing for a more aggressive cam-
paign in 2006.

4-H: A Community Club


(Continued from Page 1A)
This community effort is
something Ms. Walker said the
club has envisioned from the
beginning.
"This is really about working
together, taking responsibilities
and learning life lessons," she
said. "Sure, blue ribbons are nice,
but the main idea is what chil-
dren take with the blue ribbon
about sportsmanship."
Along this line, Ms. Walker
said the club focuses on public
speaking and teaching others.
"The focus is, okay, you've
raised a hog, now teach someone
else or if you've built a rocket, do
a demonstration," she said.
"Many adults don't like public
speaking, but we want to give the


kids the confidence."
Every year, 4-H and Tropicana
hold a public speaking contest for
fifth graders, and last year, Ms.
Walker said, more than 1,800
children took part.
"I think 4-H does give kids
confidence," Rittall said. "There.
is a tremendous amount of
change. With some kids, you can
hardly get their name out of
them, but by the end of the year,
they've grown so much. It's a
tremendous change."
Locally, eight clubs are offered
in the Fort Meade and Bartow
area.
For more information on 4-H
or the local clubs, call Polk
County Cooperative Extension
Service at 519-8677, ext. 113.

BESTT Vice President Pam
Wyant said that most of the stu-
dents were r.ot afraid, and that
she had gone to school during the
race riots, which were much
worse than the Knockout Boys.
Pritchard said that he under-
stood why the parents were con-
cerned, but he urged parents not
to instill fear in their children.
He also reminded them that their
children were becoming adults,
and that they were capable of
keeping themselves safe by
avoiding trouble.
"You have no guarantee that
nothing bad will happen at Wal-
Mart," Pritchard said.
"They don't track down every
rumor like we do."
At the close of the meeting,
BESTT President James
Clements said that BESTT had
confidence in Pritchard and its
staff, and felt that the school was
one of the safest places for their
students.




Rumors

(Continued from Page 1A)
"The two young men who
started this are still in jail. They
will not be coming back to
Bartow High School."
Under the school's zero toler-
ance policy on school violence, all
the students will be suspended
from BHS, and will either be
expelled from the school system
altogether or placed in alterna-
tive education programs,
Pritchard said.
Police Chief Erik Sandvik told
the commission: "'We don't toler-
ate violence at Bartow High
School."
Kathie Boyette told the com-
mission: "The parents were still
not notified. We were confused;
we were scared. I'm concerned for
the safety of my children."
Pritchard said that a message
to parents would be put out over
the school's automatic phone sys-
tem, and that a letter would be
sent home with stu dents Tuesday
afternoon.
"We ,don't hide the truth," he
said.

Fire and Smoke


Meet Their


Match


In Fort Meade


Fort Meade Fire Department began early and stayed late as they
trained Saturday to finish up state certification requirements.
Firefighters gained hands-on experience in vertical and horizontal
ventilation, hose training, and search and rescue at the old Roberts
homeplace, before flames fully engulfed the structure at 12:45 p.m.
The home was gone as skeletal rafters crumbled in the fire in less
than 45 minutes while many residents of Fort Meade observed.
Firefighters stood ready with hoses shooting forceful water sprays on


surrounding structures, trees and power lines. They stayed on the
scene to take care of "hot spots" and recover equipment until 5 p.m.
EMTs were on hand, along with instructors and representatives
from surrounding fire departments, who. were there to cash in on the
training as well.
The City of Fort Meade will remove the rubble that remains from
the fire and haul in dirt to the area where the house burned.


House Burns, But Mem

And History Remain Ur


Becky Roberts Driskell found
the following, history which her
father, James W., Roberts, had
written about their homeplace:
This old house started in 1900
by my uncle and aunt, Mr. & Mrs.
M.M. Loadholtes, when they built
one room, what is now the bath-
room, and used it for a kitchen
and dining room while they slept
in a tent and used an outside toi-
let which was destroyed about
1960.
One year later, they added a
bedroom to the west and a porch
along the south side of the house.
Just a few years later, about
1904, they added another bed-
room across the porch from the
kitchen and a living room to the
west of this room, therefore creat-
ing the north half of the present
living room.,
The porch had now become a
hall or what became known as a
dog trot.
Following this, by about two
years, they had the front porch
built to reach all the way across,
on the west side.
About 1910, they added a back
porch to the east, from the dog
trot, as well as the present
kitchen, pantry and dining room.
The dog trot was enclosed about
the same time.
Some time around 1913 or
1914, the present bathroom, a


part of the original room, came
into being and hooked to sewer.
Along about 1921 or 1922, the
living room was extended to the
present size. A bedroom and
bathette were built to -the east
and the front porch added to in
order for it to cover all the way in
front of the house.
I guess they got tired of fight-
ing and fanning gnats and flies on
the front porch, because they
screened in about one half of it on
the south side about 1924.
We, Mr. and Mrs. James W.
Roberts (Jimmy and Margaret),
bought the house from my aunt in
1949 and moved in with our
daughter, Rebecca (Becky), 2, in
the same year.
In 1954, we had the kitchen
sink unhooked from the septic
tank and hooked up* to the sewer.
The house was painted in 1963
on the outside.
In 1965, a metal roof was
placed on the old garage. The
next year we closed in the back
porch with windows, ceiling and
paneled walls, outside walls insu-
lated, to make a family room.
The dog trot was covered with
Marlite planks, sheets and ceiling
blocks along with installing con-
necting clothes closets. Acrilan
carpet was laid in the dog trot. An
attic fan was installed. New elec-
tric fixtures and outlets were put
in.


lories

tarnished
In 1967, the pantry Was :insu-
lated and 'galed. This -orin,
kitchen and bathrooni alls and
ceilings. .'ere co' ered ,with
Marlite sheets. The floors, whre
covered with Armstrong vinyl
flooring and new electric and
plumbing fixtures were installed.
The dining room and the first
bedroom ceiling and walls were
covered with Marlite planks and'
blocks in 1968.. These also
received new electric outlets.
Central air and heat was
installed in 1970.
In 1971, the remainder of the
house, except, the screened front
porch, received Marlite and-pan-
els, along with newly installed
electric outlets. This was the year
the fireplace mnan tel was remade.
Nylon carpet: zwas installed
throughout the.. hiome except the
dog trot and:-.screened porch in
1972.
In 1973, theT ront screen porch
had windows put in arid the walls
paneled. : .
Each rooIm,. when being
reworked, had outside watls cov-
ered with building :material
before Marlite:was put on. Also
each room was double floored and
building material was placed
between them.

Musings From God's Penman


One Good Deed Deserves a Kick in the Pants


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
Have you ever had the feeling
that any good deed you try is
counteracted by a good swift kick
in the pants?
I may be exaggerating here,
but not by much.
I recently grabbed a quick
lunch at a local McDonald's res-
taurant. I don't like eating at
fast food restaurants but, occa-
sionally, I don't have much
choice. Then, once in the restau-
rant, the menu doesn't give me
much choice, either.
I ordered my lunch and set-
tled at a corner table. About
halfway through my lunch, an
older couple took the table next
to me.
Being a "people watcher,"
which is a' fancy way of saying,
"I'm nosy," I watched this couple
out of the corner of my eye.
I noticed right away the
woman got her things situated
immediately.
Not so with the man. He
struggled to unwrap the plastic
fork. He fumbled trying to break
the plastic wrapping and free his
fork so he could begin eating.
Nothing he did seemed to ad-
vance his cause.
Without missing a beat, his
wife reached over, took the
wrapped fork from her husband,
popped it open in one easy mo-
tion, and handed it back to him.
Without saying a word, he took
it and began eating.
This incident reminded me of
something that happened the
week before.
A friend phoned asking me if I
could help a friend of his who

was moving from Florida to Vir-
ginia, and had nobody to help
him with the move. Immediately
I agreed to help all I could.
After hanging up my phone, I
wondered what I had gotten my-
self into.
I told him to have this person
call me. I figured if he doesn't
call, I wouldn't have to help.
No sooner had this thought
rambled through the little gray
cells than the telephone rang. It
was this person requesting my
assistance.
I invited him to church on
,Sunday, and said we would see
how we could help him.
I hoped the "we" did hot mean
"me."
After hanging up the tele-
phone, I told my wife of the inci-
dent, and she reassuringly said,
"He may not even come to
church."
I took comfort in her sugges-
tion.
On Sunday morning, an hour
before services, this person
showed up at church. He intro-
duced himself and we got ac-
quainted.
"All I have," he assured me,
"are 25 boxes of books that I
need to take to the post office so
I can mail them to where I am
going."
Well, I mused, this may not be
as bad as I thought.
On awakening Monday morn-
ing, second thoughts about the
whole project bombarded my
empty head. I was trying to
think of some way to graciously
bow out of the whole mess.
I have a problem pronouncing
the word "no." You have no idea


the trouble this has brought me.
I'm thinking of consulting a
speech therapist to help me.
My watch told me I was run-
ning a little late. I wish my
watch would tell me how 'to get
out of such predicaments. But
when I inquired, it didn't even
give a tick.
Then an idea burst in my nog-
gin. If he said anything about me
being late, I would get mad, turn
around and go home. Or, if he
wasn't ready to move the boxes-
when I got there, I would turn
around in a huff, and stomp off
and go home.
It's been such a long time
since I got mad or angry, I
wasn't confident of my plan. But,
I reasoned to myself, it's worth a
try.
I found myself running about
45 minutes late. I was grinning
to myself, thinking this would be
enough to make him say some-
thing about my tardiness.
When I arrived, he was wait-
ing for me with everything in
readiness. He greeted me in a
very cheery voice and made no
mention whatsoever about my
lateness.
This distressed me.
Surveying the work before us,
I figured it would take only a few
hours to load the truck, drive to
the post office, which was only a
couple blocks away, and unload
them for mailing.
I had the auspicious job of lift-
ing every box from the truck up
on to the dolly on the dock, sev-
eral feet over my head. Compli-
cating things even more, the post
office personnel supervising the
unloading of these boxes was a

Listening and Acting

On God's Word
Everyone should be aware of how God wants us to live
our lives. Our places of worship and our reading of holy
scripture should remind us that loving both God and our
neighbors is necessary to have peace and harmony in
this world. And although the stress and rigor of daily liv-
ing makes this a difficult task, we should always try to
act in a way that reflects God's love and righteousness.
The, easy way of dealing with demanding situations may
not always be the right or ethical way; however, the right
and ethical way is always the best way. The Bible tells us
"For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world,
and loses his own soul?" Trying to do what is right in
God's eyes and listening to our conscience can become a
worthwhile and honorable characteristic. I can think of
no greater quality than to be looked on by others as a
fair-minded and honest person who loves God and their
fellowman. Life in this world is relatively short compared
with eternity, and being honest, trustworthy, and having.
a good relationship with God will insure happiness in
this world, and also in the next.

Let integrity and uprightness pre-
serve me, for I wait for You.
New K.J.V. Psalm 25:21

This meant I could not groan
nor complain about the strain of
lifting boxes several feet over my
head. I guess it must be a man-
thing.
I was wondering while work-
ing, just why he asked for help.
Really, this was not a two-man
job. He could have done this
quite nicely all by himself.
Then the real reason slipped
out from under a nearby rock
where it had been hiding.
"The school where I will be
teaching," he began, "will reim-
burse me for all my expenses in
moving. But," (I was now ready
for the rest of the story.) "I am a
little short on cash and was won-
dering if you could help me? I'll
be glad to send the money back
to you."
Then I got mad.
I thought he wanted a hand
up when in reality he wanted a
hand out.
Driving home, I was reminded
of what the Bible said, "And let
us not be weary in well doing: for
in due season we shall reap, if
we faint not. As we have there-
fore opportunity, let us do good
unto all men, especially unto
them who are of the household of
faith." (Galatians 6:9-10 KJV)

the senses with a surprising smell, a fiery flavor or a zesty kick. While some tradi-

each meal while following a healthy eating lifestyle. Using seasoned meats and
cheeses during preparation eliminates some of the fat and calories found
in the breading, batters, gravies and sauces commonly used to add some excitement
to your plate. Boar's Head offers a range of flavorful meats, cheeses and condiments

emerged from the hosts.
"The best thing to do if you
see squirrels exhibiting these
characteristics is simply to leave
them alone and let nature take
its course. Eventually the larvae
will emerge and the squirrels
will continue to go about the
business of being squirrels,"
Asleson said.

Favorite cheese


dishes for easy


entertaining



The creamy, tangy taste of cheese wakes up a brunch, dress-
es up a simple dinner with friends and always draws
a crowd around the hors d'oeuvre table. Cheese, which has
enjoyed a special place in our diets for centuries, never
goes out of style whether it's a fondue for two or a feast for 50.
Boar's Head, a producer of premium delicatessen products, offers
30 different types of the finest cheeses made and considers cheese-
making an art. Their Cheddar, Parmesan, Gruyere and other cheeses
are created in small batches, sometimes by hand, by certified Wisconsin
Master Cheesemakers who have passed their skill down from father to
son. Perhaps this is why the American Cheese Society rated Boar's
Head Vermont Cheddar the Best Cheddar in America.
It's easy to taste the difference between cheeses made with care, effort.
and fine ingredients and ones where makers have bought milk from
inferior producers, substituted dry milk or shortened the aging process.
These cheeses lose their texture and character while the ones made
with the methods of the master cheese makers retain their authenticity
and unique flavor.




Macaroni and
Two Cheeses


If you "anted to entertain in the 1960s, cheese fondue was a must.
It represented a casual alternative to the formal dinner parties of the past, even though this dish
had been around for centuries.
(A recipe for fondue made with goat cheese, wine and flour was mentioned in Homer's Iliad, com-
posed in the 12th century B.C.) Today people all over the world
dip chunks of bread or vegetables into a variety of melted bubbling cheeses that are combined with
wine or beer. Here award-winning Boar's Head Vermont Cheddar is paired with beer and condi-
ments for a tangy taste that will get any party into the swing.


Easy Spicy
Cheese Straws
Using frozen puff pastry in the preparation
cuts preparation time down to minutes.
1 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 package frozen puff-pastry sheets, thawed
I large egg white, lightly beaten
8 ounces sharp Boar's Head Vermont Cheddar
cheese, shredded, divided
Preheat oven to 375F. ,
Grease two large cookie sheets.
In small bowl, combine spices.
Unf6ld 1 pastry sheet. On lightly floured surface, with
floured rolling prt. roll pastry into 14-inch square.
Lightly brush l'. I rl-, :-white. Sprinkle h.Alf .f *.::, I.iL.-..
tlure on pastry sheet. Sprinkle half of CheddJji 'n hI.11l
of pastry. Fold pastry over to cover cheese, forming rec-
tangle. With rolling pin, lightly roll over pastry to seal lay-
ers together. .With pizza wheel or knife, cut p 1'-tr. crosswise
into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Repeat process on second pastry
sheet.
Place strips 1/2 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets,
twisting each strip twice to form spiral and pressing ends
against cookie sheet to prevent strips from uncurling (moist-
en ends with egg white to help them adhere, if necessary).
Bake cheese straws until golden, 20 to 22 minutes.
Cool on wire rack. Makes 48 cheese straws.

Cheese Puffs

In 3-quart saucepan, combine butter, salt, cayenne and
water. Bring to boil; stir until butter is melted. Remove from
heat; add flour all at once, stirring until incorporated. Return
to medium-low heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon,
until mixture forms ball and leaves side of pan. Remove
from heat.
Stir in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition,
until batter is smooth and satiny. Stir in cheese.
Drop teaspoons of batter on cookie sheets, forming mounds
about 3/4 inch in diameter. A pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch
plain tip makes quick work of making the mounds. Puffs should
he at least 1 inch apart, as puffs will double in-size.
Bake puffs until deep golden, 25 to 30 minutes, rotating sheets
halfway through baking. Transfer to wire rakes to cool. Serve at
room temperature, or to serve hot, reheat in 400F oven 5 minutes.
Makes about 75 puffs.

Cheese lovers who also want to watch their calorie and
fat intake have lots of options these days lower fat, lower
sodium, even non-dairy "cheeses," such as those made from
soy.
The variety of flavors isn't as great in these cheeses, but
once in a while you just have to indulge your cheese tooth.
To give us cheese devotees that option, here are some
recipes that lighten up the calories and fat and still have
that yummy cheese flavor. We visited websites of the
American Heart Association, www.3aday.org, the American
Dairy Association and meals.com. Cabot Cheese also has
recipes on its website, and has some of the best reduced fat
cheese around.

Blintzes
Preparation Time: 25 mins, Cook Time: 45 mins

Servings: 6
16 ounces low-fat cottage cheese drained
1 cup liquid egg substitute divided
2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup water
3/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 375F. Grease a large baking dish and
set aside.
In a small bowl mix together cottage cheese, 1/4 cup of
the egg, substitute and sugar; refrigerate until needed.
Beat the remaining 3/4 cup of the egg substitute with
water, flour and oil until smooth.
Heat a bit of oil in a shallow, 6-inch skillet over medium
heat. (Use a shallow skillet as you would for preparing
crepes.) Pour about 2 tablespoons batter into the pan, tilt-
ing the pan so that the batter coats as much of the pan sur-
face as possible. It should make a very thin pancake. Cook
over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes or until the bottom of the
pancake is lightly browned and the sides start to curl up.
Carefully turn the pancake out onto a clean dish towel. The
pancakes can be .stacked like shingles.
When all of the pancakes are cooked, spread a table-
spoon of the cottage cheese filling in the center of each pan-
cake. Fold in both sides and then the ends to make little
packets. Place seam-side down in the prepared baking dish.
Melt butter and brush lightly onto blintzes. Bake for 30
to 40 minutes or until browned and puffy. Serve hot with
fruit, using 3 blintzes per serving.
