Bartow Business Owner Faces

Fraud Charges After Burn Death


A.Bartow electric company
owner is facing felony charges
following the 2004 death of a
worker who suffered fatal burns
after an electrical transformer
exploded.
Edward L. Bee, 47, owner of
4 Bee Corp., Inc., doing business as
Harris Electric, is. accused of fail-
ing to provide workers' compen-
sation coverage for the worker,
meaning his family may not
receive death benefits.
Bee was arrested Thursday on
a warrant charging him with
workers' compensation fraud and
grand theft, both third-degree
felonies punishable by up to five
years in prison and $5,000 in
fines. He was booked into the
Polk County jail with bond set at
$2,000.
"This is an especially sad case
where a family has to deal with
financial burden in addition to


their grief," said Florida's Chief
Financial Officer Tom Gallagher,
who oversees the Department of
Financial Services. "Workers'
compensation coverage, ensures
workers and their employers,
especially those in high-risk jobs,
have a safety net in the event of
an accident. Employers who
break the law and do not provide
coverage for their employees
cause increased cost and burden
Son law-abiding businesses."
The department's Division of
Insurance, Fraud conducted the
investigation that led to Bee's
arrest. The investigation began
in September 2004, when First
Financial Leasing, Inc., of Port
Charlotte, contacted the depart-
ment's fraud hot line, saying Bee
was trying to submit an applica-
tion for James Blundell after the
accident had already occurred.
Blundell was working at U.S.
Agri-Chemical, Inc., in Fort
Meade on Sept. 11, 2004, when
the accident occurred. He died
three days later.

Fraud detectives learned that
Bee was paying Blundell and sev-
eral other part-time employees
with a company check and not
reporting the payroll to the leas-
ing company. Bee's company
account was- subpoenaed 'and
checks for "contract labor" during
2003-2004 were found on a sec-
ond payroll that was not being
reported to the leasing company.
This payroll, totaled nearly
$21,000, and the amount of pre-
mium owed would have been just
more than $2,400.
The Department of Financial
Services, Division of Insurance
Fraud, investigates fraud in all
types of insurance, including
health, life, auto, property. and
workers' compensation.

This case or any other possible
insurance fraud case, call the

STRETCHING INTO the wetlands surround-
ing Peace River, the boardwalk at. IMC Agrico Peace
River Park invites visitors to explore Polk County's
natural beauty. County commissioners have agreed
to extend the boardwalk 1.920 feet north,then west
to exit at the existing picnic area. Interpretive signs


IMIC Agrico Peace River Park
visitors will soon be able t, enjoy
a little more walking.
Polk County commissioners
approved a pla jnon Wedn-esda\ to
extend the existing boardwalk at
the park by about 2,000 feet.
The construction design and
documents will be prepared by
URS Corporation, at a cost of
$117,262.


For what is probably the first
time in the city's history, Bartow
city commissioners did not vote
on a number of ordinances con-
sidered on first reading Monday
night.
Instead, the city attorney sim-
ply read the titles of the ordi-
nances into the record.
SCommissioners won't vote on
them until they .come up for a
public hearing on second (final)
reading.
Even the commissioners were
a little confused by the new pro-
cedure, and several times made
- then withdrew motions to
pass ordinances on first reading.
City Atty. George Dunlap said
the city charter and code of ordi-
nances do not require a vote on
first reading of an ordinance,
which means that state law gov-
erns the procedure.
Florida statutes don't require
a vote on first reading either, he
said.
The only ordinances on which
votes were taken on first reading
were on zoning/comprehensive
plan ordinances. Two, relating to
comp plan amendments on prop-
erty east of Connersville, were
passed.
Two others, relating to the 800


about plants, animals and habitat make the experi-
ence educational, as well as relaxing. The park is on
CR 640, east of U.S. Highway 17, near Homeland,
about eight miles south ofBartow. (Staff photo by
Peggy Kehoe)


While the design of second
phase of the boardwalk and per-
mits were completed at the time
'of the walk's construction, Len
Jordan of URS told commission-
ers Wednesday that those per-
mits have since expired.
"The boardwalk is 10 years
old, and there have been
changes," he said.
Among those changes are new


block of East Hooker Street, were
rejected, with the commission
voting to send them back to the
planning board for consideration.
Midway through the consider-
ation of more than a dozen ordi-
nances on first reading,
Commissioner Pat Huff said, "I
don't like this method of not vot-
ing on first reading."
Mayor Leo Longworth said the
commission could reconsider the
new procedure at a work session.
At the close of the meeting,
Longworth acknowledged, "We
were confused. This was some-
thing new."
Ordinances that were read
into the record on first reading,
but on which no vote was taken,
would:
(1) Increase from $500 to
$1,000 per day the fine for violat-
ing the city's wastewater regula-
tions relating to pre-treatment of
industrial wastes. The Florida
Dept. of Environmental
Protection told the city it should
increase the fines, City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge said.
(2) Require taxi companies
operating in Bartow to post a
bond or insurance with the city
clerk. DeLegge said the city may
be on the verge of getting its first


building codes, which mandate
the boardwalk comply with hur-
ricane codes.
The boardwalk will be made of
pressure treated wood, fitting
with the existing construction.
Don Wilson, Leisure Services
Division director, said mainte-
nance cost to the county will be
minimal, barring future hurri-
cane damage.


taxi service in years.
(3) Authorize the city to bor-
row $2.5 million from Citrus &
Chemical Bank to finance con-
struction of a new terminal at
Bartow Municipal Airport.
(4) Amend the city general
employees pension plan to com-
ply with changes in the Internal
Revenue Service code.
(5) Annex four parcels of land
near Connersville in tracts of 33
acres, .84 acre, 24.5 acres, and 79
acres.
(6) Zone 72.5 acres of the
Connersville lands as "planned
development."
The commission also:
Passed on second reading an
ordinance amending the city bud-
get. Gerald Cochran criticized
the action, saying that the city
should "live within your budget."
Commissioner Andy Laurent
said that most of the budget
amendments simply move money
from one account to another, and
don't represent increases.

This exhibition, nearing the
end of its run at the museum,

art borrowed from major Ameri-,

75th Anniversary Nuggets

The Poll County Democrat

T he decision to convert from letterpress to offset
printing technology was prompted by a number of
considerations. No further technological advances
were being made in letterpress; the future clearly was in
offset. The image quality, particularly of photographs, was
vastly better with offset. Most typesetting systems tor offset
printing used computers still relatively new in the work-
place and set type much faster than Linotype machines,
let alone handset type. The training time for a Linotype
operator was a five-year apprenticeship. The training time
for a computer typesetter is measured in days. Staying with
the same brand of press it had used since 1946, The
Democrat chose a Goss Community web offset press. It
was the first new press that the newspaper had ever
bought. Three printing units, each capable of printing up
to four pages at a time, were purchased. The press operat-
ed at a speed of about 15,000 copies per hour. The conver-
sion also required purchase of a process camera (to capture
newspaper pages on film) and a platemaker (to transfer the
image to a light-sensitive sheet of aluminum). The
Democrat's first issue printed on the new offset press was
published on Labor Day, 1970. (To be continued.) S.L.

Arthritis Causes, Treatment

Topic of Lions Club Meeting


; Alice .M. Hearn, director of
:Winter Haven Hospital Outpa-
tient Rehab Services, spoke to
"Bartow Lions Club members
Tuesday, .Feb. 7, about the.
-causes and treatment of arthri-
tis, and the outlook for success-
ful knee and hip replacement.
S; Osteoarthritis, aggravated by
;aging and worn out joints, is the
:most common type of arthritis,.
,and may be treated with anti-in-
flammatory drugs. Rheumatoid
-arthritis is the most severe type
;of inflammatory joint disease
iand is an autoimmune disorder.
A new treatment for this joint
disease is chemotherapy, Ms.

Hearn said.
When muscles start getting
out of balance, this may lead to
hip or knee replacement, but
also may be caused by injury to a
joint.
Ms. Hearn stressed the impor-
:tance of the feet for good joint
-health.
"We should stand level," Ms.
Hearn said. "Worn shoe soles
will indicate whether or not we
are well balanced. A really worn
down shoe promotes further in-
flammation.
"If shoes are worn, get a new
pair, especially after knee or hip
replacement," she urged.
: The speaker referred to the
knee as a hinge joint, and the
hip as a ball and socket joint. To
strengthen muscles, she said,
"walk, walk, walk."
i;- Hip replacement should be
considered only when pain has
Jedome unbearable, she said, but
the operations are 95 percent
'r.ccessf.ul. Knee replacement
procedures are much improved;
however, recuperation is not
easy, she said.
~y 'i' '


Results may be very good
when a person is willing to do
his part through therapy follow-
ing the operation.
Additionally, glucos'amine
may be taken to keep cartilage
healthy.
"If you have arthritis, try it;
see if it works," Ms. Hearn said.
The speaker was introduced
by Mike Marchman.

New Ordinance Procedure


Creates Confusion


When the Bartow City Commission
came:up with the idea last month of dis-
pensing with a vote when an ordinance is.
considered on first reading, we expressed
puzzlement over the -benefit, but reserved
judgment.
After one meeting in which that policy
was put into practice, we suggest that the
new policy does nothing but add confu-
sion where no confusion is called for.
City ordinances are adopted on two
readings. Under previous policy, the com-
mission voted on both readings, usually at
two consecutive, meetings. (Some ordi-
nances are forwvarded to the Florida Dept.
S.of Community Affairs for review, and the
second reading does not take place until
DCA sends its findings back to the city.)
When the ordinance comes up for sec-
ond (final) reading, .a-public hearing is
always required.
Having ',two readings gives both the
commission and the public a couple: of
weeks to consider the merits of the ordi-'
nance. While most ordinances are so rou-
tine as to attract little public interest, sonie.
notably those dealing with land use and
zoning attract a lot of interest.
While commissioners have said that
their vote to pass an ordinance on first
reading does not represent a commitment
to vote to pass it on second reading, the
betting line heavily favors that outcome. It
is rare that a commissioner votes to pass an
ordinance on first reading with the intent
of voting against it on second reading.
rUnidei the previous procedure, ,those
members of the public who wanted to
lobby' a commissioner to vote for or against
an ordinance on final reading knew whom
to call. With the vote on first reading elim-
inated, that option is gone.*
Adding to the confusion, there are some
.types of ordinances (again, land use
issues) which do require a vote on first
reading, and even the commissioners
themselves had trouble last week deter-
mining when a vote was or was not
required. ,Several. motions to, adopt an
ordinance on first reading were made and
then withdrawn:.
In the Florida Legislature, with 160
members each introducing several bills
each session, it may make sense to read a
bill into the record, putting members and
Sthe public on notice of the topic. And in
the legislative process, committee hearings
examine each bill in detail.


At the city commission level, weisee no
point in bypassing a vote on first reading,
and considerable advantage in commis-
si6ners going on record before the last
minute.
On a related issue, .we continue to
oppose any limitation (beyond a reason-
able time limit at the podium) on the pub-
lic's opportunity to comment on pending
ordinances.
Under current policy and it changes
from year to year the public is allowed
to comment at a meeting at which an ordi-
nance comes up for first reading,' but is
expected to do so at the beginning of the
meeting, during the "audience participa-
tion" section on the agenda. Comment is
not allowed when the ordinance is read on
first reading, which occurs later in the
meeting.
The exception is ordinances on which
both a vote and a public hearing are
required on first reading, as well as on sec-
ond reading. Then, public comment is
accepted when the ordinance comes up for'
a vote,'but not during "audience participa-
ti'on" at the start of the. meeting.
Following all this?
We thought not.
Public officials are fond of saying that
they want to hear from their constituents,
sometimes going as far as to complain that
they don't hear from them often enough.
Every rule that restricts when in the
meeting public comment is invited, or
even permitted, serves to frustrate public
participation. If a few extra minutes of
public input at every meeting makes the
meetings longer for the commissioners
an'd staff (arid the newspaper reporters
wyho cover them), that is a minuscule price
to pay for participatory democracy.

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

Homework, Then and Now


A poll of teachers and parents
by the Associated Press and
America On Line disclosed that
adults think that kids aren't being
given too much homework.
If I were a kid an accusation
that has not been hurled my way
in several years I would say
that's a little like asking cooks if
the food in the restaurant tastes
good and waitrons (my unisex
term for waitresses and waiters)
if the service is good enough.
When evaluating restaurants, I
would ask the people who eat in
them, and when judging home-
work, I would ask the kids. But
what do I know?
Anyway, the gr6wn-ups sur-
veyed generally thought the
amount of homework assigned is
about right, and those parents
who disagreed were inclined to
think that more homework is
needed, not less.
It's stuff like that which
prompts the creation of Child
Abuse Hotlines.
Lest it appear that the home-
work poll is a conspiracy in
which teachers and parents are
joined at the hip, the two groups
gave different responses on
whether parental help is ade-
quate.
More than half the parents
said they spend enough time
helping -their kids, and nearly


So who's helping the kids? -
Moms reported spending 46
minutes a day helping the kids
with homework, while dads
reported only 35 minutes (less, I
suspect, during football season).
How much homework are
kids doing today?
According to the poll, the aver-
age is 90 minutes: 78 minutes in
elementary school, 99 minutes in
middle school, and 105 minutes
in high school.
But most of the kids say they
spend less than an hour a night,
according to a federal story.
What explains the discrepan-
cv?
Well, parents and teachers
both said the Internet is a good
place to go for homework help.
And there's a lot of stuff besides
homework help on the Internet, if
you get my drift.
SBack when I was a kid, doing
my lessons on a slate by the light
of an open fire, walking five
miles to school and back through
the snow uphill both ways -
there was no internet. There was
barely even television.
How long did I spend on
homework?
Well, that all depends.
Is writing "I will not talk in
class" 100 times two or three
nights a week classified as home-
work?

I don't need any reminders that
the I'm getting old.
I'm reminded every day when I
this can't remember what happened an
hour ago, what I went into roomm
:for, or call one of my kids by the
Se wrong name. I used to be able to
ead remember details from years ago;
I. I now I'm lucky if I can remember
my own birth date.
If all that's not enough, the
'physical signs are starting to crop
Sup -the tiny wrinkles and the
body aches. I sometimes hurt in
random places and have absolutely
no explanation why. I get phantom,
pains that show up and go away
just as quickly as they appeared,
leaving me thinking that I am being
prepared for something .... maybe
training for bigger aches and pains
down the road.
Every now and then though,
something happens that gives me a
just a glimmer of hope. Like yester-
day morning when I woke up blind
in one eye.
Doesn't sound like something
that would pep me up, does it?
Well, that's the way it worked out.
I got up at the normal time and
stumbled to the bathroom, only
banging into the wall once in the
process, which was when I heard a
strange tinkling sound. I immedi-
ately 'disregarded this sound
because I do well just to find my
way around the house at 5 a.m.,
and have no hope of solving any
mysteries at such an early hour.
It was when I was exiting the
bathroom that I discovered that my
right eye had gone all wee-wonky.


Everything seemed very far away
and' fuzzy and, try as I might, I
could not get that eye to focus.
"What how!". I muttered to
myself. Wasn't it ~enough that I had
already been doomed to bifocals?
Now this? I blinked the eye repeat-'
edly, hoping to get some semblance.
of normal operation. I went'
through coffee-making and tuning
in the weather channel on televi-
sion using my good eye and a fair
amount of cussing.
I learned that walking around
with one eye closed can make you
a little seasick and noted that if I
kept my right eye half open the
nausea abated, but caused the right
eye to twitch uncontrollably.,
Once I managed to find some
form of function with one good eye
and one fuzzy one, the morbid
thoughts started to creep in. What
was all this about, anyway? A
symptom of a brain tumor? The
beginnings of a cataract? No matter
how I tried to focus on the weather,
my thoughts were inexorably
drawn to my mortality.
The next thing I knew I was
thinking about all the things I was
going to miss when this bad eye
ultimately killed me, because I am
a pessimist by nature and had con-
vinced myself in the space of less
than 10 minutes that I was dying. It
was optical cancer or some never-
heard-of rare and exotic disease
that was causing this early symp-
tom, and I would never see my
grandkids or take that trip to
Ireland that I've been planning.
A great sadness set in when I


came to the realization :that my
days were now of lesser number:
than they were yesterday. 'Now I.
had an inkling of what my futiire'
would be ... and it was short.
But I still had to go to work.
So I set about getting ready;.'
ironing my clothes, hunting for my
shoes, waking up the kids and try-
ing not to get choked up knowing
that I would ultimately have to tell
them that the old lady had one foot
in the grave.
I made my way to the bathroom
for my shower and it was then that
I found the cause of the strange tin-
kling sound that I had heard earli-
er. There was what appeared to be
a small rectangular piece of glass
lying in the floor by the bathroom .
door. I squinted at it with my good
eye trying to determine what it was
and where it came from. It was
only when I got down on my knees
by the toilet and picked it up that I,
let out a whoop of relief. It was the
right lens to my glasses. I guess
when I smacked into the wall in my
sleepy stupor I did it with enough
force to pop the lens out.
Just to make sure, I reached for;
my glasses, where they sat faithful-
ly on the bridge of my nose, and
when my finger went right through
the frame and I poked myself firim-
ly in the eye, I knew I had solved
the mystery and my heart soared..
Maybe I will see my grandkids. ,
Maybe I will see Ireland. For the
time being I was just rejoicing in
the fact that I could see at all.

two-thirds said they have enough
time to do so. You're on your own
to figure out the discrepancy.
On the other hand, nearly 90
percent of the teachers said they
don't think kids are getting
enough parental help. Whether
they arrived at that conclusion
from the quality of the work
turned in or from asking the kids
was not clear, though I suspect
the former to be the case.
Seven in 10 parents say they
are smart enough to help their
kids do homework, and frankly, I
am in sympathy with the other 30
percent.
It was not long before I entered
high school that there were only
four elements: earth, wind, fire,
and water. Somebody who didn't
like kids decided that wasn't
complicated enough, and created
the Periodic Table, which, if I
recall correctly, had about 90 ele-
ments. They had perfectly logical
abbreviations. Hg, quite obvious-
ly, is the symbol for mercury, got
it? Pb is lead. Au is gold. Na is
sodium-. What could be simpler?
But at least the new Periodic
Table came with a solemn decla-
ration that there would never be
any more elements added to it.
Have you looked at a Periodic
Table lately? A map of the New
York City subway system is easi-
er to follow.

Summer Food Programs Sought


Federal funding from the U.S.
Department -of Agriculture
(USDA) is available to Florida
faith-based and community
sponsors to operate feeding pro-
grams for low-income children
this summer.
The federal funds will reim-
burse organizations that operate
the USDA Summer Food Service
Program for Children.
When school lunchrooms close
for the summer, a significant
number of children in low-in-
come Florida communities could
be at risk of hunger or poor nu-
trition because free and reduced
price school meals are not avail-
able.
USDA's Summer Food Pro-
gram is designed to bridge this
summer nutrition gap. It reim-
burses organizations for serving
free, nutritious breakfasts,


lunches or snacks to children in
eligible low-income areas. How-
ever, the program continues to
be underutilized, largely due to a
lack of willing operators and
feeding sites.
Last year 8,067,535 free
meals were served to low income
Florida children at a USDA sum-
mer food program. Yet the num-
ber of free and reduced price
school lunches that Florida chil-
dren ate' during the school year
was 178,176,514.
In Florida the Summer Food
Program is administered by the
Department of Education (DOE).
To operate the program this
summer, organizations should
contact the DOE as soon as pos-
sible to attend one of the re-
quired training being held on
the following dates: Feb. 21, Feb.


22-23, February 27-28, Feb. 28,
March 2-3, and March 7-8,
Applications and sponsor in-
formation may be obtained from
the Child Nutrition Programs,
325 West Gaines Street, Room
1122, Tallahassee, FL 32399-
040.
The contact person is Michelle
Morris at 1-850-245-9262, or she
can be reached by email at mi-
chelle.morris@fldoe.org.
The Summer Food Service
Program is targeted to children
as old as age 18 living in low-in-
come areas (where 50 percent or
more of the students qualify for
free or reduced price school
meals).
The program operates in
schools, public housing centers,
playgrounds, camps, parks and
churches. Sponsors can be public
or nonprofit private schools or
school districts; public or private
nonprofit, residential summer
camps; local, county or state gov-
ernment agencies; colleges or
universities participating in the
National Youth Sports Program;
or faith-based and community
private nonprofit organizations.
Sponsors receive federal pay-
ments for both the meals served
to children and the administra-
tive costs of serving the meals.
New sponsors also receive train-
ing and technical assistance
from the state agency.


Applications for admission for
all classes are now being ac-
cepted at First Methodist School,
Inc. (FMS), for the school year
2006-2007.

brating 33 years of service to
Bartow and surrounding commu-
nities, offers a non-denomina-
tional curriculum, consistent
with the educational require-
ments of the State of Florida.
Extracurricular classes of art,
computers, drama, music, physi-
cal education and Spanish are of-
fered in addition to the regular

Rabies Vaccine Bait Traps Planned


Rabies is a problem in Flor-
ida, but not a problem without
hope.
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
that his department, along with
the assistance of other state and
federal agencies and six coun-
ties, will begin baiting opera-
tions on Tuesday, Feb. 14, to re-
duce the incidence of rabies

state 4 corridor.
Officials will distribute about.
700,000 bait packs containing an
oral rabies vaccine from fixed-
wing aircraft, helicopters-and
trucks starting Feb. 14 and con-
tinuing for two to three weeks.
The bait attracts raccoons,
which are the primary carriers of
rabies in Florida.: :,
"Our goal is to control raccoon
rabies in this hig y populated
area," Bronson said. "We are at-,
tempting to establish a zone of
immunized raccoons."

CASE NO:
5:05cv195-RH/WCS
ORDER
Plaintiff has filed a motion to authorize
service by publication and to extend the
deadline for.service of progress. Doc. 10.
Plaintiff has demonstrated that reasonable
efforts were undertaken to serve Defen-,
dant Herbert L. Hope, Jr. through waiver
or service and formal service of process
and, thus, Plaintiff has been unable to lo-
cate and serve Defendant Hope. Id.
The basis of this action as stated by Plain-
tiff in the instant motion is to seek "fore-
closure of a federal tax lien upon real prop-
erty owned" by the missing Defendant.
Doc. 10, p. 2. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
1665, when personal service is "not prac-
ticable," the Court may order the. Defen-
dant to appear or plead in the action and
the order may be published rather than
personally served. The statute also per-
mits this actin to proceed after service by
publication without the missing Defendant
should he fail to respond. 28 U.S.C.
1655.
Because Plaintiff has adequately demon-
strated that personal service has not been
effective and that further efforts at per-
sonal service are not practicable, Plaintiff's
motion is granted. Plaintiff is permitted to
serve the missing Defendant by publita-
tion as specified in 28 U:S.C. 1655 and
the deadline for service is extended until
March 11, 2006.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED:
1. Plaintiff's motion, doc. 10, is
GRANTED..
2. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1655, Her-
bert L. Hope, Jr. is ORDERED to an-
swer or otherwise respond to the amended
complaint, doc. 5 no later than March
31, .2006.
3. Having concluded that personal service
of this Order is not practicable, Plaintiff is
ORDERED to publish a copy of this Order
in newspapers of general circulation within
Bartow, Florida, and Grand Ridge, Florida,
for not less than once a week for six. con-
secutive weeks, beginning the week of
January 30, 2006.
4. Plaintiff shall also mail copies of this Or-
der to Defendant Herbert L. Hope, Jr,
at: (1) 4790 San Heath Road, Bartow,
Florida 33830; and (2) 7296 Boneyard
Road, Grand Ridge, Florida 32442.
5. The deadline for serving the missing Defen-
dant, Herbert L. Hope, Jr., is extended to
March 11, 2006.
DONE AND ORDERED on January 20, 2006.

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

Polk County commissioners
have decided to settle a suit
against Lake Wales Cab Co. for
a little more than half what the
county hoped to recover in a bill-
ing issue over transportation of
Medicaid patients.
The county was required to
reimburse, the state for
$64,324.98 in transportation
costs paid by the county for
Medicaid patients. In return, the
county withheld its final pay-
ment of $37,347.75 to the cab
company.
The county sued the cab com-
pany in 2002 for recovery of the
balance.
Under the settlement, the
county will keep the final pay-
ment, and both sides will pay
their own attorney fees.
County Atty. Joseph Jarret
told the commission that it made
more sense to settle the case
than to go to trial and incur
more expenses.

Students Sweetened by Love


by Jacqueline Hawley
Theoretically, her gaze focused in the
darkness of his amber brown eyes, lost in
the swirling emotions of her mind. His
stare pierced her heart and sent roaring
floods of passion through her veins.. The
connection she felt in those intimate sec-
onds made her wonder: could this be love?
Everyday, one can hear the restless chatter
of teenagers speaking about love, especially
around Valentine's Day. This heart-throbbing
holiday causes an epidemic to sweep through
the school, and Cupid seems to work.over-
time with his task of shooting love arrows.
However, while some anticipate its arrival,
others despise the mere thought of it. Do the
participating teens truly feel this emotion, or
could it be something completely different?
Love can be defined as a deep, tender, in-
effable feeling of affection and solicitude to-
ward a person. Teenagers do not skim through
pages of an online dictionary to discover the
core of their emotions; instead, they come to
their own conclusion. "Love is the uncondi-
tional yearn to be with a person despite their
faults," Bianca Harvey, a BHS junior said.
Another common feeling a person expe-
riences relates to intimacy. Everyone has
five significant parts in their life: the physi-
cal, emotional mental, social, and spiritual.
They .all work in harmony to create true
intimacy. People have the desire for close-

Gifts Set

for Valen

by Kayla Mason
Many students love to receive gifts from their
sweethearts on Valentine's Day. Sometimes,
the gifts can turn out to be a bad surprise.
Many Jackets wonder if this means chaos
for the relationship. "One year I got a rose
from my boyfriend and it was dead, he said
it was alive when he bought it," Itzel Artea-:
ga, a Freshman at Bartow High School said.
The wacky gifts that'students buy, keep
everyone wondering what exactly went
through their heads. This shows that the
regular Valentine gifts like flowers and candy
get boring really fast. "One Valentine's Day,


t


ness, oneness, and sharing their life with
someone. "I think intimacy is the uncon-
trollable part of love," Lamar Reese, a se-
"nior at Bartow said. "It's the way you feel.
Love is felt with your heart, but intimacy,
or to me it's lust, is felt with your mind."
A book called Your Fear of Love, by
Marshall Hodge, said, "We long for the
moments of expressions of love, close-
ness, and tenderness, but we often draw
back. It is the fear of pain that often drives
us away from finding true intimacy."
This fear causes people to build up walls
around their hearts to protect anyone from
getting in to hurt them. But those same walls
that keep people out, keep them stuck inside.
This attracts. loneliness, and eventually,
true intimacy and love become impossible.
Although some have not found that "spe-
cial someone" yet, they should not present
that as a reason to hate Valentine's Day. This
holiday does not only include the attention
of couples. "Valentine's Day is about let-
ting a person know you love them," Har-
vey said. "It's just like every other day."
In the end, everyone deserves someone to
love in their life. Teenagers without a boy-
friend or girlfriend could still enjoy this
time to show their affection to the people
they love, this includes friends and fam-
ily. No one should be alone on this special
day meant for celebrating the gift of love.

the Mood

line's Day

I got a bear from my mom, and the bear
kept on telling me I was special and ask-
ing about my dreams. It was really scary,"
Mason Hartsaw, a Freshman at BHS said.
Some students get weird gifts, but students
choose to like the gift still because it was from
someonespecial. "Oe Valentine's day allI got
was a sticker. I liked it anyway," Matt Ward,
a sophomore at Bartow High School said.
No matter wtfat the gift, some students still
enjoy the Valentine's Day spirit. Even if the
gifts students give and receive turn out be-
ing crazy, the love behind the gift make stu-
dents fall head over heels for the holiday.

Brutal Flu Continues

To Raid Population


by Brett Horn
The flu season, this year, displays a se-
ries of horrific events compared to last
year. It seems like the number one illness
that caused absences and mass turmoil.
Some people have a problem when
friends stay home sick because they lose
a part of their social group. "It sucks
when friends have influenza and come
back with the symptoms, then you get
sick. The fact that it comes in mid and
late winter is terrible because that is the
best part of winter. Last year my friend
-got sick and we did not get sick, but this
year all my friends got at least some of
the symptoms. I hate it when my broth-
er has it because of what he describes it
as feeling like," said Kayla Blackwell,
a freshman at Bartow High School.


Other students just hate the fact that it
hurts so much and it makes them feel like
fecal matter. This fact seems unchang-
ing through the years. "I dislike the.fact
that every year it comes around. I despise
the high fever, normally around 105 de-
grees Fahrenheit, with nose sniffles, sore
throat, and the horrible cough. Last year I
think was the worst but this year at least
I got better quicker. I hate the fact that as
soon as you start feeling better your fam-
ily gets sick. Where does it come from?
It never ends, especially last year," said
Mandi LaFond, another freshman at BHS.
The-mass turmoil seems.never end-
ing, even with the flu shot. As the world
approaches Spring, more people seem
to get better, but the flu still attacks its
many victims just like previous years.

Chorus Anticipates MPA Festival


by Lena Connor
"The mix of excitement and fear thatev-
eryone in this chorus is experiencing has
the energy level sky high. This competition
is less than a month away and that's mind
boggling," summarized Molly Williams, a
sophomore. As the Musical Performance
Assessment competition approaches the
chorus room will host a swarm of activ-
ity and productivity in preparation for
one of the most important events of year.
The competition consists of a series of
evaluations in both sight reading and per-
formance. On February 24, the chorus will
process into a large Ft. Meade High School
auditorium and try to nab a perfect rating.
Four professional musically-accredited
judges will sit and listen 'attentively for
even the most minute mistake. "To say
it's nerve racking is and understatement,"
elaborated Lindsey Sackett, who has
competed once before. And with Bartow
High School Chorus's unbroken record
of superior ratings, the pressure builds.
"However, the biggest challenge this year


is undoubtedly the prolonged absence of
our director Glori Snow who has been
absent throughout January," stated Lau-
rel Alley, president of the Chorus Club.
"It through us all for a loop, but we could
riot let it stop us from going through with
districts," explained Williams.
Due to a medical leave, Snow
brought in various substitute
directors to help the cho-
rus prepare .effectively.
"The chorus became flexible in their
musical abilities under the direction
of the varied directors and their in-
dividual styles," commented Alley.
"The other directors were really im-
pressive and helped us out a-lot," said
Lauren Kay, a sophomore. "We are de-
lighted to have Mrs. Snow back, how-
ever. It just isn't the same without her."
Now reunited with their beloved di-
rector, the group runs the home stretch.
"I have faith in this chorus. They are an
amazing group and will pull this thing
off beautifully," stated Glori Snow.
