City To Contract For Sale of Land


A seven-page contract under which the city
would sell a 35.487-acre parcel of land adja-
cent to Wal-Mart for possible commercial
development will be considered by the Bartow
city commission tonight.
The proposed contract would convey the
city-owned acreage to Frontier Bartow LLP, a
company which wants to develop the land.
It can only do so if Wal-Mart agrees to
release restrictions which it placed on the
land when it deeded the property to the City
of Bartow years ago. That restriction pro-
hibits commercial development on the land:
Officials of Frontier, who have done busi-
ness with Wal-Mart in the past, hope to per-
suade the company to lift the restrictions.
Under terns of the agreement, Frontier
would pay the city $96,000 for the property,
and would have two years to negotiate with


Wal-Mart for removal of the restrictions.
If Frontier were successful, it would then
pay the city $145,000 for each developable
acre, and $5,000 per acre for the balance.
If Frontier were not able to get the restric-
tions lifted, the city would buy the property
back for $96,000.
An ordinance authorizing the contract will
be considered on first reading tonight. If
passed, it will come up for a public hearing
and final action on Dec. 19.
The commission will meet at 5:30 p.m. for
a work session, and will reconvene at 6:30 for
its regular meeting.
Other items on the agenda:
Formal approval of a three percent pay
raise for the city manager, city attorney, and
city auditor.
Final reading and public hearings on


ordinances allowing the city to impose higher
water and electric deposits for customers with
whom the city has had credit problems.
First reading on ordinances annexing .39
of an acre on U.S. Highway 17 north of
Bartow and zoning that parcel and an adja-
cent 4.41 acres C-2, community commercial.
Approval of resolutions authorizing the
city to charge churches the residential rate for
electricity, and authorizing the city to apply
for a Federal Emergency Management
Agency grant.
Appointment of members to the citizens
advisory committee of the Polk
Transportation Planning Organization and to
the historic architecture review board, and an
alternate member to the board of adjustment.

robbery with a firearm.
According to Polk County
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Michal Shanley, Hogan and
Smith entered the store shortly

Smith, who was armed with a
handgun, demanded money from
store clerks Remesh Desai and
Raj Bhasakran, while Hogan,
armed with a baton, walked
down the aisles.
When Bhasakran refused to
hand over money, Smith started
to walk around the counter, and
Desai attempted to grab Smith's
handgun, Mrs. Shanley said.
Smith circled the counter
again and then fired a single
shot, striking Desai in the torso.
Desai was taken to Lakeland
Regional Medical Center in sta-
ble condition, Mrs. Shanley said.
The brothers fled the scene in
a white Chevrolet Cavalier.
Some nine hours later, a PCSO

Roll-Out Garbage Cart


System Approved by City


New "side-loader" garbage
trucks that will allow the city to
implement a more automated
system of collecting residential
garbage should be ready by mid-
January, Solid Waste Dir. Daryl
Stewart told the city commission
last week.
The side-loader trucks will be
used to empty garbage from roll-
out carts, allowing a single driver
to service more homes per day
than is possible now with a truck
with a driver and two sanitation
workers, he said.
Each home in Bartow will be
furnished with a roll-out cart for
free. Bagged garbage is to be
deposited in the carts, and the
carts rolled to curbside.
Collection of yard trash will
not change: leaves and grass clip-
pings must be bagged and left at
curbside. The carts will not be
used for yard trash.
The commission passed on
final reading an ordinance autho-
rizing the new garbage collection
system.
At a public hearing on the
ordinance, Gerald Cochran said


the commission decided on use of
roll-out carts without talking to
the citizens, and complained that
the new system will result in the
loss of some sanitation worker
positions.
The commission also:
Passed on first reading ordi-
rances allowing the city manager
to require higher water and elec-
tricity deposits from customers
with a poor payment history.
Passed on final reading an
ordinance approving the final
plat of Wellington View
Subdivision, to be built in
Connersville, south of State Road
60.
Adopted amendments to the
2004-05 city budget to close out
the fiscal year.
Heard City Atty. George
Dunlap outline a plan under
which the city will sell 20 acres
near Wal-Mart to Frontier
Development for $96,000, and
Frontier will negotiate with Wal-
Mart to release development
restrictions on the property. If
Frontier is successful, it will pay
the city $145,000 per developahle


acre, and $5,000 per acre for the
balance of the land. If Frontier is
not able to reach an agreement
with Wal-Mart, the city will buy
it back.
Authorized the city to apply
for a state historic preservation
grant for restoration of the old
civic center as a city hall annex,
and a Southwest Florida Water
Management District grant for
stormwater planning.
Noted Mayor Leo
Longworth's request that the
commission work to maintain
racial diversity on its advisory
boards. Commissioner Andy
Laurent said the city needs to
encourage more people to apply
for appointments to the boards.
Designated Commissioner
Brian Hinton to recommend
someone for appointment to the
board of adjustment.
Thanked everyone involved
in the Nov. 19 "Miracle on Main"
celebration.
Appointed Roy McKinsey to
the code enforcement hoard.

U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam came
back to his hometown to run a
gauntlet of questions from the
Tiger Bay Club of Polk County at
the Peace River Country Club
last week.
Given that he is well known in
this area, the Tigers skipped
straight to the questions rather
than having Putnam give an
introduction.
The first two questions dealt
with the state and national gov-
ernment's involvement in the
Polk County Opportunity
Council situation. One asked
why no aid had been sent along
with the reprimands, while the
other wanted to know more about
the FBI investigation into cor-
ruption and mismanagement.
Putnam mostly spoke of the
various investigations, saying
that a scathing audit had been
recently released, which showed
that at best the PCOC adminis-
tration had been wholly incompe-
tent, and at worst it was crimi-
nally corrupt. The ultimate pun-
ishments and proceedings were a
matter for the courts, he said.
He said he believed that
PCOC provides important ser-
vices, and that he hoped that the
matter would be resolved soon.

'War on Terror'
Regarding the connection
between Iraq and the "War on
Terror," Putnam referenced an
intercepted letter between al-
Zarqawi and some higher-ups in
Egypt advising him that the cen-
trality of Iraq was reason for it to
he a focal point of their struggle.
The letter also gave a several
step plan: expelling the
Americans; establishing an
Islamic dictatorship in Iraq;


using the kaliphate as a base of
operations for moving into near-
by secular countries; and prepar-
ing for reprisals from Israel.
, Putnam said that this letter
showed the importance of Iraq in
the eyes of terrorism. He also
emphasized that the war on ter-
rorism was largely a media bat-
tle. Much depends on the ability
of each side to convince individu-
als that their cause is just.
In this respect, al-Zarqawi has
been advised to rein in the
extremists in his own camp to
avoid the bad face it showed to
Iraqi locals. Because of this
advice, public displays of violence
have been lessened, Putnam
said. Instead of taping behead-
ings of hostages and captured
soldiers, the insurgency now pri-
vately executes their prisoners
without fanfare in order to seem
less barbaric.

Alaskan Bridge-Building
With respect to the federal
budget being used to pay for an
Alaskan bridge, Putnam said
that he did not approve of that
specific case of earmarking
money,' and that those earmarks
had actually been removed.
However, the same amount of
money wil still be sent to Alaska,
so the bridge would presumably
be built with federal taxes any-
way.
He also said that there was a
place for earmarks in the budget,
as it has helped him obtain feder-
al money to fund important local
projects, like the widening of 1-4.
Putnam then was asked who
would be the next U.S. Senator
from Florida Job Bush,
Katherine Harris, Bill Nelson, or
Adam Putnam.
He laughed and said that it
would not be him, "The Senate's
like a funeral home."


He had said as much to
Harris, but he believed that she
would win a very tight victory
over Nelson, who has been a
strong candidate.

Torture Ban Opposition
In another question, Putnam
was asked jokingly if House
Republicans were declining a ban
on torture so they could use it if
Tom Delay were indicted.
Putnam said he was con-
cerned about who got to make the
determination on what was cruel
and inhumane treatment, so he


preferred to not .allow that kind
of language.
He also said that intelligence-
gathering was a dirty business,
and that he would prefer that
they get important information
on potential attacks by any
means necessary.
Regarding a question about
what the highest income tax rate
should be, Putnam said..that he
was not satisfied with the cur-
rent income tax, and that he
wanted to actively investigate

PCOC Leadership


Has a Lot To Prove


In voting to fire its executive director
last week, the. board of directors of the
Polk County Opportunity Council did
what it had to do.
And it was only a start.
Much more must be done if PCOC is to
be a viable community action agency and
regain the trust which it has lost from the
public, its funding agencies, and many of
its clients.
The extent to which Carolyn Speed was
personally responsible for the shortcom-
ings of the agency she directed is prob-
lematical, and unimportant. It was her job
to manage the $12.4 million agency prop-
erly, and in that job, she failed.
But the responsibility for the agency's
problems does not stop there; it goes both
up and down the organization.
The board of directors is ultimately
responsible for oversight of the agency;
that oversight has been woefully lacking.
And a considerable number of executive
level employees failed to do their jobs
properly.
Those shortcomings must be corrected
if PCOC is to survive and do the job that
the public, and, its government funding
sources, expects.
With a budget of $12.4 million and a
staff of more than 100, PCOC is as large as
the government of a siiall city Its Head
Start program alone the-largest of its'
enterprises has a staff of 125 employees
operating 17 Head Start- centers serving
954 youngsters.
A week-long investigation in October
by an 11-member team from :Mid-Iowa,
Community Action, an agency with a
national reputation, returned a 13-page
report filled with criticisms directed at
every level from the board to executive
staff to front line workers.
It describes-a dysfunctional agency in
which senior staff had little respect for the
board, the board exercised little authority,
and employees up and ,down the line
communicated with each other poorly if
at all. ,
One of the more remarkable findings
was that board members are appointed
for 12 years, "with revalidation every
four years." Board members reported that
"the terms have been extended repeated-
ly in recent years, for the apparent pur-
pose of not having to recruit new mem-
bers."
The board vehemently refused to seat
an appointee of the Bartow, city commis-
sion. That position remains vacant, since
the city 'commission gave up on trying to
make its appointment.
A report of three monitoring visits by


the Florida Dept. of Community Affairs in
March and June, along with the agency's
responses, runs 24 pages. It details specif-
ic "concerns" and "findings," starting
with the fact that there were four vacan-
cies on the 15-member board, and that
attendance by the remaining board mem-
bers often failed to constitute a quorum.
It cited specific shortcomings in finan-
cial reporting and internal controls.
Department investigators were told that
the agency had only one checking
account, when it fact it had "approximate-
ly nine separate checking accounts."
DCA disallowed $4,051 in scholarship
funds awarded by the agency. Among the
.recipients whose files did not document
their attendance or completion of classes
were the executive director's nephew and
another employee's son.
The state agency put PCOC on one
year's probation, giving it until Nov. 15,
2006, to bring its operations into compli-
ance with state and federal regulations.
A federal investigation into the agency
is under way.
The state attorney's office last week
filed Government in the Sunshine Law
charges against 10 board members.
PCOC's mission of improving the life of
the poor is a noble and important one,
and some of its leaders and employees
undoubtedly do their job well.
But as an agency, PCOC falls far short
of the mark.
The Mid-Iowa Community Action
report concluded:
"Without the replacement of most if
not all organizational leadership, it is
doubtful that PCOC can regain the trust
of its stakeholders: the poor, the commu-
nity, and the funders. It is not certain that
even such dramatic measures would save
the organization."
Perhaps PCOC can rise to the challenge,
perhaps not.
If it cannot, it is time to turn over its
programs to other agencies.

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

Christmas ... the Season Is Christmas


There's the person who intro-
duced kudzu for erosion con-
trol.
There's the person who
invented the autodialer for junk
phone calls.
And there's the person who
propounded the concept of
Political Correctness.
What were they thinking?
All three have several things
in common.
They strike indiscriminately.
They seem to feed on them-
selves.
And mainly, they're every-
where.
The kudzu vine, having
applied itself to erosion control,
soon began applying itself to
taking over everything.
Kudzu was a bad idea.
The autodialer made it possi-
ble for junk phone call boiler
rooms to place calls without so
much as the use of a phone
book of a finger.
Add to it a recorded message,
and the recipient is denied the
simple pleasure of hanging up
on the moron who replies to


your Internet application for a
second mortgage, an applica-
tion which, of course, you never
submitted.
I got a recording the other
night telling me that my appli-
cation for a 30-year second
mortgage had been approved.
Just how much money you
reckon they would loan to
somebody who will be 94 years
old in 30 years?
And then there's Political
Correctness.
I have such a loathing for it
that I cringe at the letters PC,
which should stand for
Personal Computer but have
been co-opted by the Political
Correctness crowd.
The whole concept behind
Political Correctness is that any-
thing that offends, or might
offend, or might even just
annoy anybody is verboten.
Like using German words in an
English language newspaper.
Me, I happen not to like rap,
asparagus, and earrings on
men. But I do not consider that
Society has an obligation to ban


them from the face of the earth.
Okay, maybe rap.
The latest victim of the
Political Correctness move-
ment, of course, is Christmas.
Christmas.
Schools no longer let out for
the Christmas holidays; it's
Winter holidays now.
We don't worship Christ; we
worship the Winter Solstice.
Soldiers in Iraq, the front line
in defending our individual
rights, are now sending tele-
vised "Season's Greetings" to
their stateside family and
friends.
A guy carrying an M-16 and
wearing body armor who
braves roadside bombs on a
daily basis has been frightened
away from wishing his kid a
Merry Christmas in a TV clip
from Iraq.
Companies no longer have
Christmas parties; I'm not sure
what excuse they're using for
egg nog and mistletoe, but it's
no longer Christmas.
The possibility that there
might be within earshot a Jew


celebrating Hanukah or anl
African American celebrating
Kwanzaa has frightened us
away from wishing each other a
Merry Christmas.
If somebody of the Jewish
faith should wish me Shalom, 1
would accept his blessing of
peace with gratitude. I would,
in fact, be honored that hc
would share his culture witI
me in that fashion.
My celebration of the joy of
Christmas does not translate
into my wish to prohibit anyone
from celebrating Kwanzaa
(which, as I understand it, is
more of a secular observance
and certainly doesn't deny the
validity of Christmas).
For my part, I shall continue
to put up a Christmas tree,
string Christmas decorations
around the flower bed, give
Christmas presents, and close
this business on Christmas Day.
If that offends you, I will
wish you a Happy Solstice.
But I won't mean it.


OUR READERS SAY

PCOC Should Reorganize or Disband


LAKELAND For years, the
Polk County Opportunity
Council has provided important
services to the low income popu-
lation of our area, most notably
its operation of the local Head
Start program for pre-school chil-
dren and its weatherization ser-
vices to assist low income home-
owners in keeping their heating
and cooling costs down.
It is especially sad to note that
PCOC's legacy will likely not be
the aid it has given to thousands
of Polk Countians, but the organi-
zation's history of unethical
behavior by its leadership and
lethargic by its board of directors.

OUR READERS SAY


One executive convicted of
violating laws during his watch,
with another being shown having
violated federal and organization
rules. The agency's financial
records were either nonexistent
or so scrambled that auditors
could not make sense of them. A
board of directors who took a
"see no evil, hear no evil" atti-
tude until it was clear that action
had to be taken after state and
federal funding were threatened,
and even then took a defensive
stance in the face of evidence
showing such ethical shortcom-
ings. Needless to say, the credibil-
ity of PCOC and its leadership is


virtually nonexistent.
This lack of institutional con-
trol hurts efforts on behalf of our
poorest residents.
At this point, only two logical
options remain to continue the
important services that PCOC
provides:
(1) The PCOC board of direc-
tors should resign en masse
immediately, to be replaced by a
board consisting of community
leaders and representatives of the
low income citizenry from
throughout Polk County. This
group should be committed to
insuring that the agency is oper-
ated in a business-like manner


while insuring that programs
assist the greatest number of resi-
dents possible.
(2) The Polk County
Opportunity Council should be
disbanded, with its programs to
be provided by other appropriate
agencies or a new organization to
be formed in the same manner as
described in the previous option.
Whatever option is decided
upon, it is important that it be
done as soon as possible to pro-
vide as easy a transition as possi-
ble.

A Tribute To the Smiths


"Copyrighted Material
Syndicated Content

Available from Commercial News Providers"


Arthur and Billie Smith waved
happily as they left Mike's diner
after our summer dinner calling,
"Be sure you come visit us in
Homeland." That was the last
time I saw them. This week they
were called home to Heaven
together.
Together they 'had been for
decades, a loving couple, and a
warm, friendly, caring, sharing,
helping, giving, happy, wonder-
ful team of beautifully and high-
ly annointed-by-God saints, who
touched the lives of thousands all
over Florida and Georgia with
their kindness, grace, mercy and
love.
"Remember God loves you,
Jesus loves you, and we love


you," was a favorite parting
blessing of Mrs. Smith, a lady
who opened her heart and home
to everyone who visited. She
always had a piece of pie or cake,
tea or coffee waiting for you. One
knew she liked people and
always was cheerful, uplifting
and a dear "Angel of the Mercy
and Grace of our Lord Jesus
Christ" to anyone she knew who
was hurting and in need of a
friend.
Arthur Smith was a farmer,
Homeland style, whose gardens
grew abundances of cooking
crops, of which he graciously
gave acres of free produce to fam-
ily, friends and complete
strangers. Always smiling, happy


with his family, and in helping
upkeep the church. His word was
always true, his integrity unques-
tionable and his faith in God
unshakable.
Arthur and Billie were always
the first to call when someone
was sick. Always knocking on the
door when a family suffered loss.
Always calling friends in other
parts of the state to check on
them. Always sending cards to
soldiers, singles and people
whom they had met and remem-
bered across the years. The Light
of God was in their countenance
and His Kind Spirit displayed in
their triumphant lives of,
unselfish giving.
People of faith will miss them


deeply, but will know that even
as they have left us here, the bells
of Heaven ring loud and strong,
the angels sound trumpets of vic-
torious joy as our Lord welcomes
them to their eternal, Heavenly
home, and says, "Well done,
Arthur and Billie, My good and
faithful servants. Enter into the
joy of your Lord." I see them by
faith, waving back at us happy
and joyfully calling, "Be sure you
come visit us here in Heaven."

Smith died in a boating accident last

Good news to report. The
walls upstairs are nearly fin-
ished with plastering and they
look so pretty. The downstairs
walls are nearly finished with in-
sulation and wall boards, so
things are looking up. This has
been a long renovation project,
but we're going to be so excited
when it is finished as it's going
to look like new. The roof is
three-fourths finished.

A little more news on the
north Florida trip which I wrote
about in last week's article. We
went in the opposite direction
from the small towns to the coast
at Steinhatchee and rode past all
the homes that stand high on
concrete stilts. One lot we passed
was vacant as the home was de-
stroyed by last year's hurricanes.
The whole section of coast had
extensive damage, but they are
making a comeback. A number
of those homes have elevators,
like the one I rode at a friend's
home.
We also traveled up north-
west from Perry toward Talla-
hassee to Wakulla Springs on
Thanksgiving Day, and had din-
ner with five friends at the beau-
tiful Wakulla Springs Lodge,
which was built back in the
golden days by the Edward Ball
family.
It is elegant and is listed on
the National Register of Historic
Places. The garden grounds are

Early diagnosis and treat-
ment of heart disease may lead
to longer life in Duchenne and
Becker muscular dystrophy pa-
tients, say experts at Baylor Col-
lege of Medicine (BCM) and
Texas Children's Hospital in
Houston in a report that ap-
peared online in the journal "Cir-
culation."
Cardiac disease, particularly
dilated cardiomyopathy and
heart failure, is the major cause
of mortality in patients with
muscular dystrophy and is pre-
sent in most boys with Duchenne
muscular dystrophy and approxi-
mately 70 percent of those with
Becker muscular dystrophy.
These are the two common
forms of muscular dystrophy
caused by defects in a gene
called dystrophin.
"It should be the standard of
care for all newly diagnosed
Duchenne and Becker muscular
dystrophy patients to be referred
to a cardiologist for screening,
probably by 10 years of age or
earlier," Dr. Jeffrey A. Towbin,
professor of pediatrics at BCM
and chief of pediatric cardiology
at Texas Children's Hospital,
said.
Towbin and his group studied
69 boys with DMD and BMD. Af-
ter the first abnormal echocar-
diogram, which occurred at 14-


on the shores of the springs. I
would like to go there for a
week's stay.
There were hundreds of peo-
ple there to enjoy the wonderful
dinner served buffet style which
was lavish in looks and taste.
Reservations have to be made
weeks to months in advance for
this special day each year. Much
activity goes on here throughout
the year.

I attended a historical society
meeting in Perry in the old state
bank building. Approximately 50
people were there and the pro-
gram was given by Joe Akerman.
He has been a college professor
for 38 years and is now at North
Florida Community College. He
has written two books and is a
well-known historian.
The subject was Jacob Sum-
merlin, telling about his life in
Florida and his many accom-
plishments. Akerman mentioned
the founding of Summerlin Insti-
tute in Bartow. He said the wood
for the buildings came from a
steam sawmill Summerlin had
purchased in St. Augustine,
shipped to Tampa and hauled
with oxen to Bartow.
Akerman told of Summerlin
being a justice of the peace, his
vast ownership of cattle and
land, cattle drives, cattle sales to
Cuba, and his leadership in
herding the cattle. Akerman said
Summerlin was so successful
that others wanted to learn his
technique.
Summerlin was a wealthy
man, known as the cattle king,
and owned a number of slaves.
He shipped cattle to Cuba from
Peace River, Tampa and Savan-
nah.
He told of the Seminole Wars
and Osceola.
Since I am so familiar with
Jacob Summerlin's history, I
thoroughly enjoyed the remarks
of the speaker. Summerlin lived
in Bartow and Fort Meade dur-
ing the time of the cattle deals
and the institute in Bartow.

Homeowners Can Follow Tips

To Make Remodeling Easier


During a typical remodel, a
homeowner's temper can flare,
with the addition of the dust,
noise and of having a crew work-
ing in the home for most of the
day.
The National Association of
the Remodeling Industry (NARI)
offers homeowners some pointers
on how maintain a good relation-
ship with their remodeling con-
tractors during a home remodel.
A first-rate remodeling con-
tractor will often anticipate
many of these points and pre-
pare a homeowner for what's
ahead.
NARI President Paul Winans,
CR, said "The key to a good
homeowner-contractor relation-
ship is open communication.
Start a dialogue over issues you
have, no matter how small you
think they are. Chances are the
problem can be overcome."
Follow these tips and make
life during a home remodel a lit-
tle easier:
Before work begins, sit
down with your contractor and
discuss details that will affect
your daily routine. For example,
ask that the workers do not
block the driveway without
checking whether the homeown-
er's car is out of the garage.
Also, find out what their
schedule will be so you know
what to expect, and if the sched-
ule falls behind, be sure to ask
why to keep that line of commu-
nication open.
From day one, be.honest
with your contractor about your
expectations. Open communica-
tion establishes trust and is the


basis of a good working relation-
ship.
Discuss problems or irrita-
tions as they occur so you and
your contractor can devise alter-
native solutions.
Be sure to let your contrac-
tor know if you are planning a
vacation or business trip so they
can make their own schedule.
If you decide to let them work
while you are away, give them a
phone number so they can reach
you in case there is a question.
Allow plenty of time for
your project, keeping in mind
that delays due to weather, ma-
terial shortage or other problems
cannot be predicted ahead of
time.
Remove your personal prop-
erty from the construction areas,
and declare all work zones off
limits to children and pets.
Always put changes in writ-
ing, especially if the plans are
modified while the work is being
done. Have both parties agree on
the changes and sign a written
copy of them before the work be-
gins. And remember, changes
will often cause delays, so if you
decide a change is in order, be
patient with the extended time-
line.
Keep all paperwork related
to the job in one place so that if
there are any questions on the
plans, you have an easy refer-
ence for clarification.
And remember, be patient
and keep your mind on the end
result.
In due time you'll be cooking

Fort Meade Fightin' Miners Receive Nail-biting

State Championship Defeat By Sharks, 38-31


By SANDY DERRICK

Let's just call this year's edi-
tion of the Fightin' Miners the "
Cardiac Kids." With a back-and-
forth second half that constantly
kept fans on the edge of their
seats, the Miners showed why
they were playing for the Class
1A state championship, but in
the end, the Miners were bitten
38-31 by the Port St. Joe Sharks.
"I've got to give a lot of credit
to Port St. Joe," said Head Coach
Mike Hayde. "They played a
good football game. We did not
play well in the first half; I'm not
sure why. I felt like we regained
our composure at half-time and
gave them a much better fight.
"We had chances to win this
game, but we had trouble stop-
ping their offense tonight. Their
offense did a great job.
"I'm tremendously proud of
our football team this year. We
grew a lot as a team; we came to-
gether as a family and we repre-
sented Fort Meade in a first-
class manner," he said. "We
fought this game as hard as we
could to the very end; it was just
one of those games where we
each came up just a little bit
short."

Tough First Half
In the first half, the Port St.
Joe Sharks took advantage of
several penalties and a fumble to
take the lead 21-0, and it ap-
peared as if the Miners were
down for the count. But if the
Cardiac Kids have taught us
anything this year, it's that
"quit" isn't in their vocabulary.
With 1:20 left in the first half,
the Sharks faced fourth and
three on the Miner 22-yard line,
setting up a 39-yard field goal
attempt.
The Shark .center snapped the
ball and the Miners burst
through the line, blocking the
kick.
Senior defensive tnem.an Jon
Pickens recovered the ball on the
Miner 40, giving the Miners not
only the ball, but a glimmer of
hope with 1:'12 remaining in the
half.
The Miners seemed to come
alive with two runs by Roderick
Clark and Onterio McCalebb
that advanced them to the Shark
30 and a pass from Danny Grant
to Michael Williams that took
them to the Shark 16, where
Grant spiked the ball with 20
seconds to play in the half.
Two incomplete passes left
the Miners with fourth and 10
from the Shark 16.
With 16 seconds left in the
half, Flabio Valencia kicked a
33-yard field goal, brin g the
score to 21-3 at half-time.
Though the Miners had hoped
for a touchdown, the fact that
they scored was enough to turn
the momentum, and set the


Sharks were penalized for an il-
legal block, placing them on
their own 17-yard line to start
their drive.
The Miner defense would
have, nothing to do with a good
drive by the Sharks, stopping
them in their tracks with a
forced fumble that was recovered
by Roderick Clark on the Shark
25 with six minutes to play in
the third quarter.
McCalebb started the drive
with a run to the 20, but the
score would come on the next
play, with Grant finding Bradley
McMillan at the extreme right
edge of the end zone.
McMillan caught the ball and
was able to get one foot in the
end zone before being forced out
of bounds by a Shark defender.
Valencia's PAT was good, giv-
ing the Miners the lead for the
first time of the night, 24-21,
with 5:09 left in the third quar-
ter.
The Sharks answered on the
following drive with a short TD
run and a successful PAT at-
tempt to retake the lead 28-24
with just 24 seconds remaining
in the third quarter.

Record-Setting Run-back
You've heard it said that
lightning never strikes in the
same place twice; well, maybe
you have, but Onterio McCalebb
hasn't.
He caught the Shark kickoff
at the 2-yard line and, like a bolt
of lightning, ran it each and
every one of the 98 yards to the
end zone, regaining the lead for
the Miners with just 9.6 seconds
to play in the third quarter, and
setting two FHSAA State Title
game records; one for return
yards with 191; and one for re-
turns for touchdowns with two.
"He's a special player," said
Hayde. "He's a youngster with a
bright future."
Valencia's PAT attempt was
good, putting the Miners up 31-
28.
The Sharks would not give up,
however, pounding their way to
the Miner 1-yard line on the sub-
sequent drive, and forcing their
way into the end zone to take the
lead from the Miners with 8:29
to play in the game.
The PAT was good, giving the
Sharks a 35-31 lead.
They would go on to kick a
field goal that extended their
lead to 38-31.

e Close Finish
They would maintain the lead
for the rest of the night, despite
a last-chance drive by the Min-
ers that began on the Miner 3-
yard line with just over a minute
remaining in the game.
With 43 seconds left in the
game, Port St. Joe cornerback
Mike Byrd intercepted a pass
from Grant on the Shark 42-yard


STATE RUNNERS-UP The Fightin' Min-
ers seniors and Head Coach Mike Hayde hold up
the second place trophy after their 38-31 loss to


stage for a nail-bitingly close sec-
ond half.
"We were a little discombobu-
lated," said Hayde. "They had us
reeling. They really took it to us
in the first half, and we were a
little excited; but we were able to
pull it together. Onterio made a
big play on the kick off that
sparked us. We started to play a
better defense. We were able to
give them a much better football
game."
The Miners had won the coin-
toss at the beginning of the game
and deferred to the second half,
so the third quarter began with
the Sharks kicking off to the
Miners.
Electric Third Quarter
That's when the fun began.
Onterio McCalebb caught the
ball on the 7-yard line and took
,off down the field, heading
straight for the oncoming Shark
defenders.
He bobbed-and-weaved his
way away from tackles and
broke into the clear, with just
one defender to beat to get to the
end zone, and two teammates to
block for him.
McCalebb zigzagged his way
past the defender after receiving
an excellent block and sprinted
into the end zone for the first
Miner touchdown of the night.
Valencia's PAT attempt was
good to make the score 21-10
just eight seconds into the third
quarter.
The Sharks couldn't get any-
thing going on the ensuing drive'
and punted to the Miners with
10 minutes left in the third quar-
ter.
The Miners drove the ball to
the Shark 40 where they faced a
fourth and one situation.
Grant completed a pass to
Williams, but Williams was un-
able to get the first down, giving
the Sharks the ball on their own
42 with 8:08 to play in the third
quarter.
Fortuitous Fumble
On the first play, a Shark
fumble was recovered by the
Miners on the Shark 44 with
eight minutes left in the third
quarter.
The Miner's first play was a
run by McCalebb. The Sharks
were penalized 15 yards for a
face-mask during the run, put-
ting the Miners on the Shark 28.
Then Roderick Clark ran the
ball to the 25 and. the Sharks
were penalized for encroach-
ment, taking the Miners to the
Shark 20.
From there, Grant dropped
back for a pass and found Wil-
liams in the end zone for the sec-'
ond Miner TD of the night.
Valencia's kick went straight
through the uprights, bringing
the score to 21-17 with 6:48 re-
maining in the third quarter.

line.
Two take-a-knees later, time
ran off the clock, sealing the
Sharks' victory over the Miners.
"If we had made a couple
more plays defensively, we
might have been able to win this
game," said Hayde.
"They blocked us in the first
half for sure; but we stopped
them real well in the third quar-
ter. In the fourth quarter, I don't
know if we were tired, but they
were able to make some plays
with the pass game. They hit
some misdirection plays that
hurt us.
"I think our football program
showed a lot of heart tonight.
There are a lot of football teams
that would fold and not keep
fighting, but we fought and
clawed our way back into this
thing, and we had a chance to
win it.
"We have a lot to be proud of,
particularly our seniors, who
have been to a state champion-
ship game three times, and were
able to help us win our first one,"
he said. "Winning seven district
championships in a row, seven
region championships in a row,
being in seven final fours in a
row, is an unbelievable accom-
plishment in my book, and a loss
today doesn't diminish any of
those accomplishments."
"We're gonna continue to
work hard. We're gonna try to
make it back and win another
one."

Looking To The Future
The Miners end-their season
with a record of nine wins and
five losses, and a bright outlook
for next year.
"We've got a lot of really good
young football players in this
program right now, and we'll be
back. We're gonna continue to
work hard. We had a really good
JV team that worked hard this
year. We're gonna try real hard
to get back here; it's what we do.
"We always pride ourselves on
never quitting and playing with
poise and confidence. And I
think we showed a lot of poise
and confidence tonight. Those
are some of the things that we
stand for, that make us the foot-
ball program that we are.
"Our coaching staff did a phe-
nomenal job with these guys this
year. I've got to give a lot of
credit to my coaching staff. We
had some rough times toward
the end of the season, but we
still believed in ourselves. We
kept working hard and we were
able to represent this community
in a great manner," he said. "I
don't think the Fort Meade com-
munity should be ashamed or
embarrassed of this program at
all. Those kids played their
hearts out tonight.
"I'm very proud of this football
team. I'm as proud of this foot-
ball team as I am of last year's
football team. No doubt about
it."

Putnam Addresses Variety of Issues


FWC Clarifies 'Total Length'


(Continued from Page 1)
alternate options, such as a flat
tax or a national sales tax.
These, however, present a
problem when you try to com-
press the tax code, which necessi-
tates the elimination of benefits,
he said.
About 20 percent of the popu-
lation currently does not pay tax,
and therefore there would imme-
diately be a need for a two-tier
system which allows those people
to survive, Putnam said.
Every deduction, such as child
credits and charity credits, raises
the flat tax rate, which then cre-
ates pressure to create another
tier and another tier until the
flat tax resembles the current
income tax structure.
Putnam also is interested in a
national, sales tax; however, it
would be very difficult to imple-
ment because it would be neces-
sary to repeal the income tax
amendment to make sure the
public was not double-taxed by
the federal government, he said.

Murtha and Withdrawal
When asked about John
Murtha's relationship with the
Pentagon and his recent request
for withdrawal of troops, Putnam
denied that the declaration was
really a "watershed moment,"
because Murtha was not actually
asking for immediate withdraw-
al. Murtha was asking for with-
drawal within six months,


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) approved a series of rules
to clarify and standardize how
anglers should measure the total
length of various saltwater fin-
fish.
The new rules specify that the
"total length" of saltwater fish,
such as red drum, spotted sea
trout and snook, should be meas-
ured by determining the .straight
line distance from the most for-
ward point of the head with the
mouth closed, to the farthest tip
of the tail with the tail com-
pressed or squeezed together,
while the fish is lying on its side.
However, there is no change
to the way the "fork length" of
saltwater fish, such as Spanish


The minimum pool
matches is six feet.


You'd 'think it would be easy
to spot a kid with a vision
problem, but the signs aren't
always so obvious. One in
four children has a vision
problem, but only an eye doctor
can tell for sure. And, since
80 percent of all childhood
learning is visual, good grades
and good vision go hand in
hand. For more information, visit

mackerel, pompano, and cobia,
should be measured. Fork length
measurements are considered to
be easily understood by fisher-
men and do not need further
clarification.
Another new rule changes
measurement for gray trigger-
fish from total length to fork
length to be consistent with the
way this species is measured in
federal waters.
The goal of these rules is to
provide a standard measurement
procedure for the total length of
saltwater fish that is understood
by resident and visiting anglers
and that may be uniformly en-
forced by officers in the field.
These rules take effect July 1,
2006.

Putnam said,
While he respects Murtha,
Putnam does i. ': think that all
the troops would be sent home.
However, there probably would
be a reduction in troops in Iraq
after the next elections there, he
said.
Putnam also was asked about
the recent Polk County tax
increases, but he said that the
commissioners have said that
they wouldn't tell him how do his
job, so he would offer them the
same respect.

Bribes vs. Donations
Putnam also addressed the
difference between graft and cor-
ruption as opposed to people just
donating to a cause they believed
in.
Putnam gave an example of
that difference by explaining that
because he had experience in the
citrus industry, many of those
companies believed he would be
able to address, their issues and
complaints in Congress, so they
donated money to his campaign.
When Washington apple grow-
ers saw the citrus industry sup-
porting him, they assumed that
he also would be able to help
them, so they donated money to
him as well.
Contributions are not bribes,
he said. Many times politicians
are given contributions because
they happen to think the same
way.
He said that it was also impor-


tant to rewcr'aber that .'
strongest lobby group, the AAIP,
doesn't even give campaign con-
tributions because of the
strength of their voting bloc.

Long-term Economics
Putnam agreed with another
Tiger that the long-term econom-
ic issues facing the U.S. were
very serious.
The U.S. cannot compete on
labor costs, he said.
In addition, he said that China
was on the verge of reaching a
stage like the robber-baron era of
the U.S. in the 1900s, which was
a boom in economic development
for the few with money and
power, but still laid the infra-
structure for future balanced
development.
However, China has even
more advantages because of its
massive population and high
commitment to education.
Bdth China and India's rise
will create America's biggest
competition, he said.
Putnam also quoted Bill
Gates, who said that even the
best high school in the U.S. is
producing the wrong kind of
product for the current economy.
Putnam said this was a seri-
ous issue that needed further
investigation.
The- next Tiger Bay meeting
will host Dr. Gail McKenzie,
superintendent of the schools, on
Dec. 12.
