Efficiency Commission Offers

Recommendations To Commission


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

Eminent domain and indigent
healthcare were up for discussion
as Polk County commissioners
heard the interim recommenda-
tions of the Polk County
Efficiency Commission.
Mandated by an amendment to
the Pola County Charter. the
commission was organized and
began meeting in 2005. and its
final recommendations will come
to the county manager and the
commission in early 2007.
Among the recommendations
which held the commission's
interest on Wedrnesday was a rec-
ommendation to begin purchas-
ing environmental lands through
emirient domain.
"Have you done a cost evalua-
tion of this recommendation?"
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
asked. "It's been my experience
that whenever we start dealing
with eminent domain, the cost
goes up."
While commissioners did not
seem inclined to use eminent
domain to acquire the lands, all
were in favor of attempting to buy
lands before their value increas-
es.
"I think we do need to get in
front of the cost -curve,"


Commissioner Paul Senft said.
In addition to environmental
lands, the commission again visit-
ed. indigent healthcare, and
received a clarification regarding
prisoners serving time in Polk
County.
The county does attempt to bill
a prisoner's insurance company,
and if a prisoner is enrolled in the
Polk Healthcare Plan, there is a
possiblility of billing that. plan as
well, commissioners were told.
A recommendation of the effi-
ciency plan calls for money left
over from the county's indigent
healthcare plan to be used to fund
uninsured prisoners' healthcare,
but commissioners said it would
be unlikely that money existed.
That recommendation also
would require another referen-
dum, County Atty. Joseph Jarret
said, as prisoner healthcare was
not approved by the voters.
Additionally, the commission
liked the idea of uniform county-
wide development regulations,
but seemed unsure as to how that
would be accomplished.
The county currently manages
the federal Community
Development Block Grants for a
number of small communities,
and Senft said perhaps other pro-
grams could be managed the
same way. This, he said, could be


a way to manage the county's
growth.
"With all the discussion of
growth, we sometimes turn down
something, and then the property
is annexed into a city and
approved." he said.
Other- highlights of the
$600,000 study include:
"Reverse auctioning" of bids.
This would allow those bidding to
see the lowest bid and come in
with a lower bid.
Consolidation of fire protec-
tion and law enforcement. This
recommends that cities consoli-
date police and fire protection
with the sheriff's department and
county fire department.
Emergency communications also
would be included in the consoli-
dation.
Landfill privatization.
Forming a county-wide
water and sewer commission.
Completing a real estate
inventory analysis.
Several minor county depart.-
ment changes to reflect "best
practices."
County Mgr. Mike Herr is
expected to meet with the com-
mission later this month to con-
'tinue the recommendation refine-
ment process.

Cost Cuts on BMA Terminal


Don't Excite Commission


Despite the fact that the low
bid came in $1.4 million over bud-
get, Bartow city commissioners
expressed little interest in trim-
ming $115,600 from the $7.1 mil-
lion project by making cost cuts
suggested by the bidder.
They 'I ask their consulting
engineer to look over the "yalue
engineering" suggestions made by
Semco Construction, 'but were in
general agreement with the
observation of Commissioner
Andy' Laurent that saving
$115,600 over the 30-year life of
the building wouldn't make that
much difference.
Semco's bid was $7,139,272.88,
and the commission, meeting as
the airport (authority, accepted
that bid at its January meeting,
subject to any modifications rec-
ommended by Semco and
approved by the engineer URS
Corp. and the commission.
URS -had predicted that the low
bid would come in at around $5.7
million.
The biggest modification pro-
posed by Ed Locke, president of
SSemco, would be to change the
materials for the red metal roof,
at a saving of $65,000. Going to
an insulation with a lower "R-
value" would save $20,000, Locke
said.
"Everybody expected more
money than that," Commissioner
Brian Hinton said.
"We may not want to change
it," said Commissioner Rosie
Thornburg, chairman of the air-
port authority.
URS will review the proposals,
Airport Mgr. Cynthia Barrow
said.
Construction is scheduled to


begin in March, with completion
by the end of the year.
The building and additional
aircraft ramp space will be paid
for with airport revenue and with
grants from the Federal Aviation
Administration and the Florida
'Dept. of Transportation. Mrs.
Barrow has asked both agencies
tp increase funding to cover part
of the cost overrun, and they are
considering it, she said.
On a related subject, Mrs.
Barrow said that Christopher and
Susan Scott, who are negotiating
for a contract to operate the
restaurant in the new terminal,
are balking at a $960 per month
charge to amortize the cost of
kitchen equipment. The total pro-
posed rent is $2,976.67 per
month.
The Scotts, doing business as C
& S Scott Holdings, Inc., present-
ly operate Kaihy'- Too, a short
order restaurant at the airport.
The commission envisions a ter-
minal restaurant that would
draw Bartowans to the airport for
dinner, not just serve airport
industrial park employees' and
pilots using the airport.
Despite their concerns about
the $960 per month, the Scotts
have signed a letter of intent to
enter into a lease, Mrs. Barrow
said. Christopher Scott plans to
meet with the authority at its
March meeting.
"He wants to do this," Mrs.
Barrow said. "We want him to
make it; we don't want.it to fail."
The restaurant will occupy
3,950 square feet of the 18,000-
squarq foot terminal building.
Mrs. Barrow said she would
check into what the Lakeland and


Sebring airports charge their
restaurant operators for space.
The commission also:
Approved a request by Kerm-
iron, an industrial park tenant, to
extend a rail spur 375 feet to
serve its plant..
Agreed to allow the city san-
itation department to keep a
mobile office on airport property
for another year. Because the
authority generally does not
allow mobile offices, it. reviews
the sanitation department's unit
each year.
Ratified a lease to the county
commission of Suite 11 ,in Bldg.
250 for $830 per month. The lease
is for one year with two one-year
renewal options.


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

American students are falling
behind in science education a
fact often lamented by politicians
and industry heads.
The Polk County School Board
hopes to do something about it.
Becky Braaten, curriculum
coordinator of secondary science,
submitted a proposal calling for
an overhaul of the science cur-
riculum for grades 6 through 12
at the school board's work session
on Tuesday.

Middle School Concerns
On the middle school level,
only 36 percent of science teach-
ers have a scientific background
including either an undergradu-
ate or graduate level degree.
According to the proposal, very
few middle schools offer a mathe-
matically based advanced middle
school science program with an
embedded research'project, or
high school science credit for hon-
ors physical science.
In addition, only a few schools
offer a significant amount of
hands-on lab time.
The National Science Teachers
Association recommends at least
80 percent of class time. should
involve lab work.

Middle School Proposals
The' Curriculum Development
and Material Selection (CDMS)
committee recommended that all
middle schools offer regular and
advanced tracks for science.
On both tracks, sixth grade
will cover Earth and space sci-
ence with an overview of scientif-
ic theory, metrics, and lab safety
and reports in the first nine
weeks; seventh grade will cover
life science; and eighth grade will
cover physical science.
The High School CDMS com-
mittee recommended that honors
physical science should be


removed from the high school cur-
riculum, so it would no longer
count for high school credit.

High School Concerns
According to Ms. Braaten, only
two Polk non-magnet high
schools scored in the top 50 per-
cent of the state on the FCAT sci-
ence test in 2005, and only one
managed this in 2004.
OCnly a handful of schools offer
a high school Earth and space sci-
ence course, and some schools
have even dropped their physics
program.
Access to different science
branches as well as AP level
classes is not equitable through-
out the county, according to the
report.
Most schools offer science
classes that will allow a student
to graduate with three required
credits (only two if the credits.
include lab experience), but do
not always cover all qf the differ-
ent topics in either the FCAT or
ACT science tests.
The FCAT covers four areas -
physical, and chemical sciences:
SEarth and space sciences; life and
environmental sciences; and the
nature of science and scientific
inquiry.
The ACT covers life sciences
and biology; physical science,
chemistry, and physics; and
Earth and space science.
In comparison, the
International Baccalaureate
school requires five science cred-
its a half credit of biology, a
half credit of Earth and space sci-
ence, a credit of physics, a credit
of chemistry, and then two addi-
tional credits in either biology,
chemistry, or physics.
The I.B. school has been
ranked first in Florida on the
2003, 2004, and 2005 FCAT sci-
ence tests.

High School Proposals
The CDMS committee strongly


recommends that the high school
graduation requirement be
changed to four credits. or three
with lab experience.
A regular track science educa-
tion would include biology. Earth
and space science, and physical
science, which would require the
completion of Algebra I or that
the student was in 11th grade.
On the college-bound track,
students would take honors biolo-
gy and honors-Earth and space
science in ninth grade. In the
10th and 11th grades, students
would take either regular or hon-
ors chemistry and physics.
Poor performance on the col-
lege-bound track would move the
student to the regular track.
Each track of science courses
Should: be required to be taken
before the second semester of
11th grade.
Elective sciences above and
beyond these courses would be
permissible.

School Board Reaction
Hazel Sellers said that some of
the most advanced students were
being hurt by the current practice
of giving high school credit to
honors physical science in eighth
grade.
These students would com-
plete their high school require-
ments in ninth grade, and then
would have no science class the
year before they take the FCAT
science test.
Only two science credits were
required when Jack English was
in school, he said, but that was
when their were only three years
of high school.
He also said that it was impor-
tant to recruit teachers with a.
strong science background, as it
seemed easier to teach science
majors classroom management
and other teaching skills instead
of giving non-science educators a
strong scientific foundation.


School Energy Management Saves $43 Million Since 1992


Polk County public schools
received the Energy Lighthouse
Award from Energy Education,
Inc. for the school district's ener-
gy conservation program that has
saved the district more than $43
million since 1992.
It is the second time in four
years that Polk public schools has
been recognized for its efforts in
energy conservation. The school
district also received the award in
2002.
School district energy manage-
ment specialists work with school
personnel on energy conservation
and management measures. They
monitor electricity, water, sewer,
natural gas, and fuel oil and work
to quickly identify and correct
areas showing problems with


energy consumption.
Examination of facilities' air con-
ditioning, heating, lighting and
plumbing is another emphasis.
In the latest data compiled by
the state, the square foot cost for
all energy in Polk schools is $
0.67. The state average is $1.03.
Polk has the lowest energy cost
among the 23 largest Florida
school districts for energy effi-
ciency, and many representatives
from other school districts come
to Polk to investigate the efficiency
program.
Highlights of the savings dur-
ing the 13-year period include:
Air conditioned square
footage in school buildings
increased by 46.3 percent but
actual electrical consumption had


increased by only 9.2 percent dur-
ing that time.
Overall water and gas con-
sumption during that time has
decreased by 21.9 percent and


32.5 percent respectively during
that period. About 60 million gal-
lons of water less were used in
2005 than in 1991.


Three Seek 1, Not 2


Three candidates have filed to
run for Seat 1 on the Bartow city
commission, and only one candi-
date has filed for Seat 2.
A headline in Monday's issue
'of The Democrat transposed the
seat numbers.
Candidates for Seat 1 are
Wayne Lewis, Pat Crisman, and
James F. Clements.
Commissioner Pat Huff, who


presently holds Seat 1, filed for
election to Seat 2, and is unop-
posed.
What does this mean to you as
a voter?
Nothing, really.
All voters who live within the
city limits are eligible to vote for
all seats on the commission. The
seat number has to do with where
the candidates live.

Polk County Animal Control
Officer Kimberly Epperson spoke
to Bartow Lions Club members
and guests at their Tuesday
meeting about the many animals
housed in the Polk Animal Con-
trol facility at 7111 DeCastro
Road, near. the county landfill.
As many as 500 small animals
may be housed at the facility,
Ms. Epperson said.
Animal Services, now oper-
ated by the Polk County Sheriff's
Office, offers neutered dogs and
cats for adoption by the public
from $40 to $70 each, depending,
on the size of the animal.
During the 2005 hurricane
season in Florida, animal control
housed numerous animals which
liad been separated from their
normal environment, Ms. Epper-
son said. The agency was re-
cently called upon to house 150
dogs which the owner had ne-
glected and mistreated. Of that.
number, 79 are still at the facil-
ity, she said.
Animal Control answers, free
of charge, calls from citizens re-
porting stray animals which


they wish to have taken to the
animal control facility. The num-
ber is 499-2600.
When stray animals are
picked up by Animal Control
personnel, they are normally
held from four to six days prior
to being euthanized. A licensed
veterinarian is on duty at the fa-
cility, where stray pets are ex-
amined for identification before
being destroyed, said. Ms. Epper-
son.
A website is operated by the
facility so that animals available
for adoption may be viewed prior
to visiting the office.
The speaker was introduced
by Fred Egli. Members brought
their wives as Valentine guests
to the meeting, held at the Bar-
tow Civic Center.


This Saturday
First Baptist Church of Bar-
tow's "410 East" youth group will
hold their first Chili Cook-off
this Saturday, Feb.18, from 5 to
8 p.m.
All money raised will go to
help the youth from FBC attend

4A The Polk County Democrat


* -' .


As America struggles with its energy
dependence, the Polk County school board
has found a dramatic partial solution.'
The board received the Energy
Lighthouse Award from Energy
Education, Inc., for the school system's
dramatic reduction in energy consump-
tion. It was the second award in four years.
The organization calculated that the
school system has saved $43 million since
1992. That's enough money to build a new
school.
..We can recall back in 1992 when a con-
sulting firm proposed to create a compre-
hensive energy reduction program for the
school system. It was one of those things
that came under the heading: f i sounds
too good to be true, 'it probably is."
But it wasn't.
Through a combination of equipment
and awareness, consumption of energy:
was achieved on a level that is harc~ to
imagine..
Consider these reports from the school
board's energy management specialists
and the Florida Dept. of Education:
SThe average cost for energy in Polk
County schools is 67 cents per square foot,
less than two-thirds the state average of
$1.03. '
Polk's energy consumption is the low-
est of the state's 23 largest school districts.
The square footage of air conditioned
space has increased by 46.3 percent over
the past 13 years, while electric consump-


tion has increased by only 9.2 percent.
Water consumption has decreased by
21.9 percent; the school system used about.
60 million gallons less water in 2005 than
in 1991.
Over that same period, natural gas.
consumption decreased by 32.5 percent.
Savings of that magnitude would be
remarkable enough in a household or in a-
small business, where it is easier to enforce
tight controls.
That it can be achieved by an organiza-
tion the size of the Polk County school sys-
tem, with thousands of employees and
more than 100 school campuses, is even
more remarkable.
There's a lesson to be learned from Polk
County's energy saving success.
The more widely that lesson can be
spread; the better off we'll all be.

THINKING OUT LOUD / By S. L FRISBIE, IV

Bad News Does Not Improve with Age


School Energy Reduction


Shows It Can Be Done


.It certainly didn't make bad
news turn good, and Clif-didn't
try tq put "spin" on the story. But
by being prompt and forthright,
he established a reputation for
himself, and by extension for the
university, for not trying to hide
bad news.
It is a lesson lost on Vice-
President Dick Cheney, who acci-
dentally shot a 78-year-old hunt-
ing companion instead of the
quail he thought he was shooting
at in Corpus Christi, Texas, last
Saturday.
It was not until the next day,-
more than 14 hours after the
shooting, that Cheney's handlers
put out the word thathe had shot
a friend. By one account, the dis-
closure didn't come until after the
Corpus Christi newspaper broke
the story.
Initially, the apparently minor
extent of the injuries turned the
event into grist for late night talk
show jokes and editorial car-
toons. When the .victim took a
turn for the worse as the result of
a heart attack induced by a pellet
of birdshot, Cheney continued to
respond with press releases, giv-
ing a "business. as usual" feel to
the incident.
It was four days before
Cheney appeared in public -to
express regret for the accident,
and to take responsibility for it.


Until then, some of his apologists
had been suggesting that the vic-
tim was somehow responsible for
getting in the way of Cheney's
blast. ':
It also has been reported that it
was not until the 14 hours had
passed, that Cheney was inter-
viewed by local law enforcement
officials under terms of "an
agreement. bet ween the Secret
Service and Kenedy County
Sheriff Ramon Salinas."
The man is, to be sure, Vice-
President of the United States,
but when you accidentally shoot
somebody, a little of the luster of
that office wears:off. Or should.
There is no question of felo-
nious intent.
Poor hunting procedure to be
sure, poor aim perhaps, but not
felonioius intent.
Over the past four decades, I'
have codified "Frisbie's Laws," a
tongue-in-cheek compilation of
the 19 things I have learned in 41
years in newspaper management.
Frisbie's 17th Law is: "Bad
news does not improve with
age."
Clif Paisley taughtme that-in
1958.
Too bad Dick Cheney never
had somebody like'Clif to teach
him the concept.

OUR READERS SAY

Blacks Won't Lose the Right To Vote


LAKELAND The kernel of
truth in the text of an e-mail
being circulated is that the Voting
Rights Act, of 1965 is indeed set to
expire unless it is renewed by
Congress before 2007. The rest of
it is false.
The basic right of all American
citizens to vote, -regardless of
race, is guaranteed in the United
States Constitution and can't
expire with the Voting Rights Act.
The NAACP addressed this
issue in a statement quoted in the
Nov. 19, 1998, issue of the

rights were granted by the 15th
Amendment, which was passed
immediately after the Civil War.
Expiration of the Voting Rights
Act will not terminate the rights
granted under the 15th
Amendment.
The U.S. Dept. of Justice con-
curs. In its "Voting Rights Act
Clarification" dated April 2, 1998,
it states:'
The basic prohibition against
discrimination in voting con-
tained in the 15th Amendment
and in the Voting Rights Act does
not expire in 2007 it does not
expire at all; it is permanent.
The confusion
arises from the
apparent assump-
tion that it's the
Voting Rights Act
alone which guar-
antccs suffrage to
minorities. In reali-
ty,'all the Act does is
keep in place a set
of so-called "extra-
ordinary remedies"
meant to enforce
the 15th
Amendment at.

Iders" els, where, in defi-
ance of federal law,
obstacles to the vot-
ing rights of black
people were still in
place in some parts
of the country as of
the early 1960s.


The 15th Amendment guaran-
tees you the right to vote regard-
less of race. It too has no expira-
tion clause. The Voting Rights Act
of 1965 came into play due to the
,recognition that discriminatory
practices and barriers to voting
were being erected in certain
states and that it was very diffi-
cult to correct them on a case. by
case basis.
Slavery was abolished by the
13th Amendment with no expira-
tion, clause. Citizenship was pro-
vided for all persons born or nat-
uralized in the United States in
the 14th Amendment with no
expiration clause. This is why
illegal immigrants want their
children born here. That is all that
it takes to have immediate citi-
zenship. Foreigners know and
understand this amendment :
well.
Amendment XV, ratified ;on.:
Feb. 3, 1870, reads:
1. The right of citizens of the
United States to vote shall not be
denied or abridged by the United
States or by any State on account
of race, color, or previous condi-
tion of servitude.
2. The Congress shall have
power to enforce this article by
appropriate legislation.

It was in the Fall of 1958, as an
Incoming freshman at .Florida
State University, that I was inter--
viewed for a job at the FSU News
Bureau by Clif Paisley.
Clif with one F, he' told mre,
Because his name was Clifton,
not Clifford.
The'. mission 'of -the news
bureau, he said, was to'get out all
the good news, and to get the bad
news out first.
My job was on the good news
side;: mainly writing press releas-
es about faculty members who
had achieved some sort of recog-
nition. At 75 cents per hour, it the-
'oretically .paid the maximum
salary authorized for student
assistants,, though I later learned
that one really smart physics
major actually earned a dollar an
hour.
A 'few years later, I married
. her.,
Anyway, Clif emphasized that
part of the job -, his part, to be
.precise -was to get the bad
news out first. In a large (in 1958,
8,000 students was large) univer-
sity, it was an unfortunate truth
that every year or two, a student
would "jump or fall" from the
roof of a dormitory. When that,
happened, Clif was notified
immediately. and he would call
the wire services and other media,
to give them the bad news.

and counselors, then get extra
help from tutors or peer helpers
and take courses that will
strengthen any academic weak-
nesses. Students can retest early
in their senior year and then re-
port only the score they want col-
leges to see."
The ACT Assessment is an
achievement test that includes
four exams; English, reading,
math, and science.
Students who take the op-
tional writing test will add 30
minutes to the three-hour nor-
mal testing time.
Most colleges and universities
don't require a writing score, so
students should check the. writ-
ing test requirements of colleges
they're considering before regis-
tering for the ACT.


Milner, social work program di-
rector at Southeastern.
Students who wish to become
licensed as social workers must
graduate from an accredited
school, Milner said. Nearly 70
percent of states have licensure
requirements for bachelor's level
social workers.
The accreditation process be-
gan at Southeastern in 2001. It
involved multiple site visits and
extensive documentation to
prove the social work program at
Southeastern met the expected
education standards.

PRC Substance Abuse

Outpatient Center Opens


Peace River Center has
opened its Substance Abuse Out-
patient Treatment Services de-
partment.
In an effort to aid community
needs, Peace River Cehter has
obtained a license from the State
of Florida certifying them in out-
patient and intensive-outpatient
substance abuse treatment serv-
ices.
Located at Peace River Cen-
ter's Main Street offices in Bar-
tow, patients participate in uni-
fied and integrated treatment
programs with a family compo-
nent.
This substance abuse outpa-
tient program addresses sub-
stance abuse and mental health
diagnoses while also accommo-
dating patients' personal needs.
"There are programs that of-
fer short term and residential


services but nothing in between,"
Program Director John Nutt
said. "Peace River Center is
bridging the gap by offering a
program that caters to patient
needs, allowing them to remain
in their families and keep their
jobs while receiving intensive
substance abuse treatment."
The program is equipped with
experienced master's level clini-
cians who offer outpatient serv-
ices on a need-be basis.
The program requires three-
hour sessions three days a week
including both individual and
group sessions.
Appointments are guaran-
teed within 24 business hours
and can be made through pro-
gram assistant, Jennifer Willis,
at 519-0575. Early morning or
evening sessions are available by
request.


'Give Kids A Smile'

Event Helps Children


More than 62 children re-
ceived free dental care during
the "Give Kids a Smile Event" in
Auburndale.
The event, sponsored by the
Polk County Health Depart-
ment, highlighted the impor-
tance of routine dental care.
All children received compre-
hensive exams and fluoride var-
nishes from volunteer dentists
and a toothbrush and stickers.
Parents received informational
.brochures on sealants and fluo-
ride.
"Another benefit of the event
was that parents saw how im-
portant it is to take care of their
teeth also," Dr. Girish Herekar,
dental director for the Polk
County Health Department,
said. "Children's. oral health is
everyone's business; not just
dentists."


The event is promoted nation-
ally.
Last year, more than 29,000
dentists and other volunteers na-
tionwide participated in the pro-
gram.
According to a survey by the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, nearly half of all
U.S. children ages 2 to 9 suffer
from untreated tooth decay.
While poor diet and oral hygiene
play a role, cavities are actually
caused by a disease called caries,
which is five times more common
than asthma.
Public health programs such
as Medicaid and Florida KidCare
are available to help children,
but utilization rates are low.
Here in Polk, only 19 percent of
children enrolled in Medicaid re-
ceived any dental service in
2004.

Great Backyard Bird Count Invites
Everyone to Count Birds With Buddy


ITHACA, N.Y. The ninth
annual Great Backyard Bird
Count (GBBC) is taking place
Feb. 17-20, with a special oppor-
tunity to, "Count Birds with a
Buddy!"
The National Audubon Soci-
ety and the Cornell Lab of Orni-
thology are asking birders to
share their passion with some-
one new to this pastime. At the
same time, every participant-
contributes to scientific knowl-
edge by joining the only count
that creates a mid-winter snap-
Sshot of what the birds are doing
across North America.
"People can take as long as
they like watching birds as part
of their GBBC day," said Dr.
Paul Green, Audubon's director
of Citizen Science. "Most impor-
tant is that people get outdoors
and have fun counting the birds
they see. Then they can be
amazed at the results they pro-
duce on the GBBC web site; the
animated maps are especially
great."
No fee or advance registration
is necessary. Participants note
the highest number of each spe-
cies they see at any one time*and
enter their sightings online at

web site also includes instruc-
tions and bird watching tips. The
count is run by the National
Audubon Society and the Cornell
Lab of Ornithology, with spon-
sorship by Wild Birds Unlimited.
In 2005, birders sent in more
than 52,000 checklists, with a re-
cord-breaking 613 species and
more than 6.5 million birds

Lady Jackets Hamstring

Mustangs In 13-6 Battle


By MARK KING

The Merritt Island Mustangs
looked more like appaloosas af-
ter the Bartow High School Lady
Jackets' softball team spotted
the Ponies five runs in the first
two innings of the first away
game of the 2006 season.
But the Bugs came out swing-
ing after the shaky start and de-
feated the Mustangs 13 to 6 to
earn their second win in as
many outings.
Starting BHS pitcher K Flood
gave way to Candace Howell in
the second inning after the Mus-
tangs managed to amass six
runs. Howell stymied the
'Stangs, tossing 14 strike-outs
and allowing no hits. So domi-
nant was Howell's efforts that
the hurler.'fanned the first
eleven batters she faced.
For Flood, it was a difficult
start as she allowed seven hits,
including a three-run homer in
the first inning. But fear not,
softball fans. She is a freshman
and is expected' to have much


better performances ahead of
her, once she gets more mound
time.
As for the BHS offense, there
was tons. In all, the Bugs' bats
blasted 18 hits over the seven in-
ning game.
The best Buzzer batter of the
ballgame was Elizabeth Howell,
with four hits, including a dou-
ble, and three RBIs. Kara Ruteri-
bar had the next most productive
.bat with two hits and two RBIs..
Whitney Little had three hits
Sin the'lead-off batter spot. Ra-
Schael Giddens (RBI), Erin Foley
(double, RBI), Rachael Jackson
(double, RBI), and Diana Thomp-
son (double) had two hits each,
while Mallory Butler (RBI) had
one hit.
Tomorrow night, the Lady
Jackets return for a blopd-feud
at One Bug Place as the Blood-
hounds from Auburndale tackle
the Jackets for the first time this
season. Game time is 7:30 p.m.,
at Lady Jackets Stadium. Come
out early and watch the JV Jack-
ets play at 5:30 p.m.

No, these are just a few of the
fascinating ideas Polk County
students developed when asked
what transportation will be like
in Polk County in the year 2030.
The Polk Transportation
Planning Organization, the group
responsible for creating the Long
Range Transportation Plan, spon-
sored its third annual art poster
contest for Polk County students.
Created to enhance the TPO'si
public involvement and education
program, more than 400 students
entered this year's contest. The
students submitted drawings and'
descriptions depicting what they
think transportation will be like
in the year 2030 in Polk County.
Who can imagine what the
year 2030 will be like? What kind
of technology will we have in 25
years? Will we still have fossil
fuels? Will cars be obsolete?

Wright once said "...no flying
machine will ever fly from New

think there is a world market for

Not knowing what the future
will bring creates challenges for
determining planning and bud-
geting future roads and trans-
portation, for which Polk County
students were willing to imagine
solutions.

Civil War Bugs Will Join Re-enactors at Olustee
***i~ ~ ~~u in * 1* ** *'n. '


By Julie Walters
University of Florida
IFAS

LAKE CITY When Civil
War buffs commemorate the
struggle between North and
South at the Battle of Olustee re-
enactment this weekend, a
University of Florida expert will
be on hand to demonstrate how
Rebs and Yanks faced a common
foe insects.
Participants and spectators
gathering Friday through
Sunday, Feb. 17-19, at the
Olustee. Battlefield Historic Site
near Lake City, can get an up-
close look at weevils and lice and
learn how pests affected soldiers,
courtesy of Thomas Fasulo, an
extension entomologist with UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. i
Fasulo, who develops instruc-
tional materials on entomology
for UF, said pests played a signif-
icant and deadly role in the
Civil War. Diseases, often spread
by insects, claimed twice as many
lives as combat injuries.
"People have a fairly sanitized
idea of what a soldier's life was
like during the Civil War," he
said. "Every soldier at the Battle
of Olustee 5,500 men on each
side was infested with body
lice."
Even dedicated re-enactors
might balk at hosting the blood-
sucking insects for the sake of
historical accuracy, so Fasulo a
re-enactor with 12 years' experi-
ence will present a one-man
show of sorts. Portraying a Union
officer, he will wander the park
displaying vials of lice and their
eggs, known as nits, and tell visi-
tors about the pests.
Soldiers inadvertently spread
lice by sharing equipment par-
ticularly blankets to lighten
their loads for long marches, he
said. The pests did not pose a


serious health threat during the
Civil War, but they made life
uncomfortable one man could
host more than 100 lice, each
raising small, itchy bites on the
soldier's skin.
Men would temporarily rid
themselves of lice by boiling their
uniforms and bathing, or by kick-
ing up anthills and dropping their
clothes on top, letting the swarm-
ing ants pick out lice and nits,
Fasulo said. But in the close
quarters of camp, no soldier was
ever louse-free for long. The pests
were so common that soldiers bet
on louse races for entertainment.
"Soldiers would each pick a
louse off their uniform and drop it
onto an army-issue tin plate," he
said. "The soldier whose louse
reached the edge first would win
tobacco, or food or a night off from
guard duty."
Union Army rations provided
breeding grounds for another
prevalent pest, a tiny brown bee-
tle called the granary weevil,
Fasulo said. At the Olustee re-
enactment, he will spend part of
his time in a simulated Unioi
encampment, displaying weevils
in hardtack, a cracker made, from
flour and water that was a staple
of the Union soldier's diet.
"In the war, men given moldy
hardtack could usually redeem it
the next time rations were doled
out but they weren't allowed to
trade in the weevil-infested vari-
ety," he said.
Weevils could be removed from
hardtack by dropping it in a cup
of boiling water or coffee and
skimming the insects off the sur-
face, Fasulo said.
Re-enactment spectators may
not be familiar with lice and wee-
vils, but they'll probably recog-
nize the insects that posed the
greatest threat to soldiers flies
and mosquitoes.
Common house flies spread
dysentery and diarrhea, which
claimed as many as 100,000 lives


during the four-year conflict, he
said. Malaria. spread by mosqui-
toes, infected one million soldiers
during the first two years of the
war and claimed thousands of
lives.
"It's hard to imagine now, but
doctors did not make the connec-
tion between mosquitoes and
malaria until more than 30 years
after the Battle of Olustee,"
Fasulo said.
The vast numbers of men and
animals involved in the war made
insect problems inevitable, said
Gary Miller, a research entomolo-
gist at the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's Systematic
Entomology Laboratory in
Beltsville, Md.
"Army camps were giant
breeding and feeding grounds for
insects," Miller said. "For exam-
ple, the Union Army of the
Potomac .began the Overland
Campaign in spring of 1864 with
more than 100,000 men, 8,000 to
10,000 head of cattle and over
56,000 horses and mules. There is
little doubt the soldiers were sur-
rounded by both animal and
human refuse."
The ,Battle of Olustee, fought
Feb. 20, 1864, was the largest
Civil War battle in Florida,
Fasulo said. The Union Army,
which entered the state through
the port of Jacksonville, was sent
to establish a government loyal to
the Union and cut off supplies of
beef and salt to the Confederate
Army. The Union Army was
forced to retreat after four hours
of fighting, ending with almost
2,000 of 5,500 Union soldiers
killed, wounded or captured.

year's re-enactment can be found

site, located at http://extlab7.ent-

War, at http://scarab.msu.mon-

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
This year, the Mistress of the
Parsonage and Yours Truly cele-
brate 35 years of marital bliss.
During more than three
decades of matrimonial ecstasy, I
have learned many things,
For example, I never knew how
many mistakes I made until I got
married.. My dearly beloved has
been most generous, almost to a
fault, in this area of our relation-
ship. Through the years, she has
faithfully (and I may even say
religiously) pointed out my mis-
takes.
Boy, did I make mistakes. It
has taken her 35 years, come this
August, to straighten out the
likes of me, and the job is not
quite finished.
She may need another 35,
years.
During these 35,years, I have
discovered the secret of marital
bliss. When my wife and I got
married, we were determined to
make it',work.
I must confess, when I put my
mind to something, I can never
find it again.
What is the secret of my mar-
tial bliss, you may ask? And a
good question it is. If I can pass
along any wisdom I have gained

precisely what to say.,
"Honey, it's all my fault and

I have found it almost useless

Let me make this perfectly
clear: All of my mistakes carry a
completely logical explanation.
SThisis'the difference between
my good wife and me. I can logi-'

\Romans 14:19


Being able and willing to accept where we are in our lives
Scan benefit our peace of mind and add to our personal happi-
ness. If we can begin each new day with an attitude that
reflects how blessed we are, and realize that we have so much
to be thankful for, our emotions will also be more positive. We
all know that life is not always easy, and that everyone has
issues with which to contend; however, our attitude 'and the
Sway in which we address our daily concerns defines our char-.
acter and well being. Just as much of our past momentous


problems with which we were once so concerned have now
hopefully disappeared, future problems will also be taken care
of. Therefore we should accept that life is always challenging
and make the best of.what we have. Dealing with the concerns
of daily life helps us to develop a trust in our Heavenly Father,
and knowing that He loves us should be comforting in times of
stress. Everyone has concerns in this world, but being truly
satisfied with our lives and accepting that we are exactly
.where God wants us, is a reflection of the healthy contented
attitude of a well-adjusted person.
