Vision for Future Development Topic of


Next Joint Zoning Board, City Meeting


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV-
Publisher


At .the next joint meeting of the
Bartow city commission and the zoning
board, the two bodies plan to begin talk-
Sing about their vision for future develop-
ment of newly-annexed land in th.e city.
Thus far, joint meetings called for that
purpose have been devoted to discussion
of city and state land use regulations and
development procedures.
At the close of a two-hour meeting
Tuesday night, third in the series of
monthly joint sessions, Mayor Leo
Longworth announced 'that at Ithe next
meeting, the two bodies will bhgin dis-
cussing "what~ e want Bartow; to look
like in the future.
"I think we want to get into I.he nitty
gritty of what we would like to Isee," he
added.
Zoning Board Member Bo Raulerson


said the board also should consider
allowing "external input to this group.
"There are some people with very
strong opinions.

'Not Until They're Mad'
"Historically, people don't have a lot of,
input until they're mad," he said.
Longworth agreed that the two bodies
should invite public participation, noting
that the joint meetings held thus far.
have been work sessions of the commis-
sion and the zoning board at which pub-
lic input has not been invited.
Longworth and City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge are to schedule the next meet-
ing.
At Tuesday's joint meeting, the com-
mission and the zoning board were given
an overview of how the city's develop-
ment review committee, made up of
department heads, goes over planned
developments, and what the public


works department and the, utilities
department requires of developers.
Public Works Dir. Bill Pickard said
that the city.allows subdivisions within
the city limits to be developed with septic
tanks in areas where city sewer service is
not available.
The county requires that 'dry lines" be
put in place for future connection to
sewer systems, but the city does not, he
said, adding, "It's very expensive for the
developer."
Pickard noted that developers are
willing to pay for water line extensions to
get city water service.
Several subdivisions in the
Connersville community are being
planned with septic tanks. Earlier in the
month, commissioners instructed the city
staff to investigate the feasibility of
extending sewer lines to the area.


'We Don't Rubber Stamp'
As to the city's review and approval
process. Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
told the commission, "I can honestly say
I don't believe we rubber stamp any-
thing."
A report from the city finance depart-
ment computed that on a $200.000 home
with $25,000 homestead exemption, the
city gets $10,427.47 in revenue in the
first year, and $2,382.47 a year after
that.
The first year's revenue includes
impact fees of slightly more than $6,000.
with the balance coming from ad valorem
property taxes, electrical, building and
plumbing fees, the stormwater utility
tax, and profit from electricity, water and
sewer service, and garbage collection.
Utilities profits exceed $1,600 per
year, according to the report.
In ensuing years, money comes from
property taxes, the stormwater tax, and


profits from utilities.
Wiegers told the joint meeting that
the three biggest issues for Bartow under
new state growth management laws will,
be schools, transportation, and water.
Beginning in December of 2008,
Florida law will require that the avail-
ability of schools be considered, in
approving new developments.
Raulerson said the biggest fallacy in
school construction planning is that the
state allows new schools to be built only
to accommodate existing population, not
anticipated growth. As a result, he said,
some schools are overcrowded the day
they open.
Wiegers said another problem in plan-
ning schools for Bartow's growth is that
school construction is not allowed on
reclaimed phosphate land. Much of
Bartow's future growth is projected to
take place on reclaimed land owned by
Clear Springs Land Co.


Bartow Losing


Winn-Dixie Store


By PEGGY KEHOE
S Managing Editor

Bartow's Winn-Dixie is among
the 35 grocery stores to be closed
or sold as part of the company '-
Chapter 11 reorganization.
The store will remain open t.o
serve customers while a buyer iLs
sought, according to Terry
Derreberry, director of commun.i-
cations and neighborhood mar-
keting. No timeline has been
established, she said, as selling,
the store could take several
months.
Each store averages 70 full.-
and. part-time employees, she
said. The company will try to
place them at other stores, an'dl
S encourage whoever might pmi-
chase the store to hire as many of
the present employees as possi-
ble. Winn-Dixie also offers assie.-
tance, such as severance pack-
ages to employees.
Winn-Dixie Stories, Inc., based
in Jacksonville, announced thie
closings on Tuesday, after conm-
pleting a review of its entire store
portfolio, part of the company's
plan to emerge from bankruptcy
by this summer.
Twenty-eight of the stores ar;e
in Florida; the others are iin
Georgia, Alabama and Louisian Ra.
Four other stores, one each in
Sarasota, Bradenton, Pal:n'
Harbor and Tampa, are closing in
the Tampa-St. Petersburg dis-
trict.
Stores that cannot be sold will
be closed.
',Winn-Dixie currently operatils
585 stores in Florida, Alabama,
Louisiana, Georgia, Mississiplli,
S and the Bahamas. The 550 stores
that will remain open include 10
that are-temporarily closed as a
result of Hurricane Katrina.,
Including Bartow, the company


A proposal to bring a tempo-
rary halt to processing of new
housing developments while tlhe
city reviews its zoning code wias
referred to the city attorney 'by
the zoning board Monday night..
Bartow resident Cliff 'rd
Daniels presented his proposed
"zoning-in-progress" ordinance,
along with two other ordinances
to decrease residential develop-
ment and to protect and/or
require trees in commercial
development, to the board. A
week earlier, he presented the
same proposals to the city conm-
mission.
The zoning board was on t;he
verge of scheduling a public hear-
ing on the three ordinances for iits
March meeting when Planning
Dir. Robert Wiegers suggested
that they be referred to City At ty.
George Dunlap for review
instead.
"I think we're a little bit shaky
on the proper procedure" for han-
dling ordinances submitted by a
citizen, rather than the city attor-
ney or staff, Wiegers told the zon-


operates 11 stores in Polk County.
" "Over the past several months,
we have thoroughly reviewed our
store base in an effort to ensure
Winn-Dixie is able to emerge
from Chapter 11 as a healthier
and more competitive company,"
Winn-Dixie President and Chief
Executive Officer Peter Lynch
said. "We believe the 550 stores in
our continuing footprint will pro-
vide us with the most solid possi-
ble foundation on which to build a
more profitable future for Winn-
Dixie. At this time, we do not
expect any-other store closings as
part of our Chapter 11 reorgani-
zation process."
Shareholders learned in a
court hearing on Jan.. 30 that
they will receive little or no value
for their stock when the company
comes out of bankruptcy. The
stock continues to trade over the
counter.
In February 2005, Winn-Dixie
and 23 of its U.S. subsidiaries
filed for reorganization under
Chapter. 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code. In June the
Bartow store was spared when
the number of stores was reduced
by 326, from 913 to 587 in the
U.S. and the Bahamas. Winn-
Dixie reduced its designated mar-
keting areas from 37 to 23, clos-
ing stores in Virginia, North
Carolina, South. Carolina,
Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama,
Mississippi and Louisiana mar-
keting areas. The company found
buyers for 181 of those stores last
July
Deep South egg processing
plant, which Winn-Dix ie operated
-in the Bartow business, park at
CR 555 and Highway 60, was
closed in 2001.

1925, is headquartered in

ing board.
Zoning Board Chm. Michael J.
Marchman thanked Daniels for
his proposals, noting that it's the
first time that a citizen has pro-
posed a zoning ordinance.
In presenting the three ordi-
nances, Daniels said he had
"received favorable feedback"
when circulating the ideas in the
community.
The open space proposal "has
been proven successful in main-
taining rural character" in other
communities, he said.
"Incentive is built in to provide
open space and hopefully public
open space which would aid the
city budget by maintaining the
current high levels of open space
per resident without impacting
the city budget," he said.

'Mortgaging the Future'
Noting that high-density
development has been cited as
most cost effective for city govern-
ment, Daniels called that concept
"mortgaging the future for short
term gain.


Main St.

Market

Saturday
Downtown will fill with flow-
ers, fruit, vegetables and plants
as the first Bartow Farmers'
Market opens this Saturdayv
March 4.
The weekly market, will be
held each Saturday on.North
Central Avenue, on: the east side
of the Polk County Historical
Museum from 8 a.m. to 2 p,m.
The growers-only market will
offer a wide variety of items.

"I believe that enhancing our
minimum regulatory standards to
maintain the rural character of
the city is not the heavy hand of
government, but simply the right
thing to do."
The tree preservation ordi-
nance "minimally increases the
requirements for new commercial
construction," he said. It would
not apply to residential: develop-
ment.
The "zoning-in-progress" ordi-
nance is intended to give the zon-
ing board and the city commis-
sion "adequate time to digest
these issues and make decisions,"
Daniels said.
"Given the velocity with which
development is coming to Bartow,
it appears we may only have one
chance to get it right."
The "zoning-in-progress" ordi-
nance, modeled after a similar
initiative in Lake Wales, would
allow developments already in
the approval progress to move

WALKING THROUGH THE "WILDER-
NESS," third graders taught by Elsa Huff at First
Methodist School imagine what it might have been
like for the Israelites wandering 40 years, as writ-
ten in the Old.Testament. Mrs. Huff started the tra-
dition 27 years ago,. and has only missed one or two
years taking her classes from the school to
Homeland, a journey of about 6.5 miles. This year
15 children and 14 parents made the trip,, which
also was a nature walk and trash pick-up. On the
walk they saw an alligator, white pelicans, anhin-
gas, an egret, an osprey, mourning doves,, mqcking-


birds, a woodpecker and a great blue heron.
Students learn about a bird each week in class.
They also picked up all sorts of trash, including a
wheel cover. Before starting out, the group was
treated to "manna" at the home of Eric and Carolyn
Presnell. When they got to the park. ,hey had lunch
from Sonny's. Mrs. Huff has been doing the walk
long enough to get students whose parents made
the trek with her as students themselves, and
sometimes come; back to walk with her. IStaff

Fort Meade Officer Nominated For

'America's Most Wanted' All-Star


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer

A little 12-year-old girl feels
more safe, her mom is thankful
justice has been served, and they
give the credit to Fort Meade
Police Officer Kevin O'Neal.
For this reason, Officer O'Neal
has been named as a local home-
town hero All-Star nominee on
the national television show,
"America's Most Wanted."
In 2005, the girl, who lives
with her mom in a county near
Polk, went to a northern state to
visit her sister and other family
members.
Before the girl left, a sexual
battery occurred. When she came
back home, she told her mother
about it. Her mother went to
some family friends in the Fort
Meade area and asked what she
could do.
The friends told the mom to
talk to Officer O'Neal. He told her
to go to the local police agency
where she lived. After weeks of
trying, the mother said everyone
refused to help because the crime
did not occur in that area.
When the girl and her mother
came back to Officer O'Neal with
this information, he told the girl
to contact the child abuse hotline.
They contacted the police in the
state where the crime took place.
The hotline workers contacted
the mother and Officer O'Neal,
who was asked to help. O'Neal
called the state .attorney's office,


and was toldby RayAdornia, who
is in charge of the sex crimes divi-
sion, if the proper agency where
the girl lived would not help, he
could go ahead and help the girl.
O'Neal earned the trust of the
girl.
He conducted the interview for
the state where the crime was
committed; collected DNA, and
worked with authorities in the
other state in order to get a con-
viction.
The person committing the
crime was convicted and sent to
prison. When he is released, he.
will be listed as a registered sex
offender for the rest of his life.
The girl and her mother were
so grateful, they submitted
Officer O'Neal's name for nomina-
tion to the television show.
Producers from the show then
called O'Neal at his home.
"It freaked me out at first.
They wanted to know if the story
was true and all the details," he
said. "They called the Fort
Meade Police Department to con-
firm my employment status.
Then my picture and the story
appeared on the Internet and the
phone calls began to come it."
When asked how he feels about
the whole thing, O'Neal said, "I
feel like I was just doing my job."
To vote for Officer O'Neal, log
on to www.amw.com/all
star/2006/detail.
Nominations are open now.
Voting began at noon on Feb. 24.
Each week for eight weeks, votes


Kevin O'Neal


may be cast for O'Neal to become
the weekly All-Star winner. The
eight weekly All-Star winners
will be finalists for the 2006 AMW
All-Star vote in May.
The eight weekly All-Star win-
ners will receive an AMW duffle
bag with AMW merchandise.
The 2006 AMW All-Star prize,
which goes to one, will be $10,000
and an All-Star weekend at the
NASCAR Nextel All-Star
Challenge.
"We are proud of the work
Officer Kevin O'Neal did on this
case and will vote for him on the
Internet weekly, hoping he wins,"
said Delores Avery, deputy city
clerk.

Potluck: The Filmr To

Show At Polk Theatre


The premiere of Potluck: The
Films motion picture project will
make its entrance onto the cine-
matic scene on Wednesday,
March 8, at 7 p.m. at Polk Thea-
tre in downtown Lakeland.
Potluck is a cinematic project
by local film production company
Marivamax Productions.
The project includes three
films: Heman, Woman Haters
Club (a comedy about men and
women), Success Story Part I (an
Sactpr has a crisis of conscience),
and Bad Day (a modern day Job
story).
All three films have a spiri-
Stual underpinning and are in-
tended to draw people to ask
questions about God and what it
means to be a person of faith.
All three films were con-
ceived, written and directed by
filmmaker Dave DeBorde, an as-
sociate professor in Southeastern


University's communications de-
partment.
DeBorde's entertainment ca-
reer started as an actor and has
expanded into directing and pro-
ducing.
In addition to Potluck's theat-
rical release, March 8 also marks
the national release of the DVD
for Potluck.
The DVD will offer the "offi-
cial" versions of each film and al-
ternate versions as well. The
DVDs will be available for pur-
chase at the premiere.
The DVDs also will soon be
available for purchase from the
official website: www.potluck-
movies.com
Admission to the premiere is.

Southeastern University re-
ceived official notice that its so-
cial work program has been ac-
credited by the Council on Social
Work Education.
Southeastern is the only insti-
tution of higher learning in Polk
County to receive this accredita-
tion and is one of 10 accredited
programs in Florida.
The accreditation means stu-
dents who graduate from South-
eastern with a bachelor's degree
in social work are eligible for ad-
vanced standing upon being ac-
cepted to a graduate school "be-
cause it is assumed they've had
that first year of graduate school


in their [bachelor's in social
work] program," said Marleen
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.

forward, but would suspend
action for six months oh projects
not yet submitted to the zoning
board.
It would not apply to construc-
tion on "existing lots of record" in
the city.

Lower Density
,The density, ordinance pro-
posed by Daniels would restrict
residential development "to. 2.1
homes per acre and would
require that 35 percent of the
land in new developments "be set
aside as permanent open space."
The present code requires that
10 percent of the land in a devel-
opment be preserved as open
space.
The ordinance proposed by
Daniels would establish a system
of "bonus points" under which a
developer cold achieve a higher
'density than 2.1 homes per acre.
With bonus points, the mini-
mum amount of open space could
be reduced to 25 percent.
The ordinance. also would
require that no more than 60 per-
cent of the lots in a subdivision
could be the same width. The bal-
ance would have to be at least 10
feet wider or narrower.
The tree preservation ordi-
nance would call for preservation
of existing vegetation when pos-
sible, with emphasis on parking
lots and landscape buffers.
A city permit would be
required for the removal of
mature trees. Trees removed
from rights-of-way to allow
installation of utilities would
have to be replaced by the city
with an equal number of trees.
The zoning board will hold its
next meeting on Monday, March
27.

Hooker Street Proposal
Turning to other business,
Zoning Board Member B0o


Raulerson asked Planning Dir.
Robert Wiegers why a proposal to
rezone a parcel of land on East
Hooker Street as R-2 (duplexes)
with.a stipulation that two small
single-family residences be
allowed on the parcel was
referred to the city commission
without consideration by the zon-
ing board.
The zoning board recommend-
ed rejecting the rezoning to allow
construction of a duplex unit, but
did not consider the option of two
small homes.
Wiegers said the applicants
changed their application to seek
R-2 zoning for two small houses
after the zoning board considered
the original application.
"It was not a substantive
change," Wiegers told the board.
Raulerson said the revised
request should have come back to
the board for consideration.
Wiegers said the change won't
be forwarded to the Florida Dept.
of Community Affairs until mid-
year.
The board also:

Right-of-Way Closure
Voted to recommend to the
city commission closing a trian-
gular tract of land designated as
Stuart Street/East Lake, Drive
right-of-way at the northeast cor-
ner of Stuart and East Lake.
Constance Bowling of 1320 East
Stuart St., who owns the adja-
cent land, asked that the right-
of-way be vacated.
"By closing it, are we giving it
to Ms. Bowling?" Zoning Board
Member Gail Schreiber asked.
Wiegers replied that was correct.
The board voted to recommend
the closure, which will be consid-
ered by the city commission at its
meetings on March 6 and 20.
Voted to recommend that the
city commission designate the
north' 100 feet of the future
Michael Holley auto dealership


property at.3255 North Highway
98 for commercial use and zone it
C-3 (highway commercial). The
balance of the site already has
been zoned for the dealership.
The northern edge had been
planned as an entry road.
The Florida Dept. of
Transportation will not allow a
median cut at that point, and the
entry will be at the southern end
of the property, Wiegers said. The
same entry road will serve the
planned Silver Companies devel-
opment, he said. The commission
will consider that recommenda-
tion at its meetings on March 6
and 20.

Taylor Landing Plat
Voted to recommend that the
city commission approve the pre-
liminary subdivision plat of
Taylor Landing, a development
on the south side of Taylor Road,
east of the Old Eagle Lake Road.
Bill Konrad is the developer. The
lot widths will be scaled down
from 100 feet on the lots closest
to Sago Palms in increments to
90, 80. and 70 feet as the subdi-
vision moves farther away from
the upscale Sago Palms develop-
ment.
Raulerson asked who would be
responsible for widening Taylor
Road. "That will be an issue for
Polk County," because it is a
county road, Wiegers replied.
Gordon Thompson said that
Konrad never held a promised
meeting with Sago Palms resi-
dents to discuss the develop-
ment. Konrad replied that he met
with Diane Goss, "who I believe
was representing everyone," and
agreed to the transitional lot
sizes. He offered to consider any
issues raised by Thompson at
that night's meeting. The zoning
board's recommendation will be
considered by the city commis-
sion at its March 20 meeting,
Wiegers said.

ong-Term Benefits Should THINKING OUT LOUD / By S;L. FRISBIE, IV

Long-Term Be'nefits Should The First Amendment and Pets


Outweigh Short-Term Costs


In the earlier decades of the 20th
Century, it was a point of community pride
for a small city to offer sanitary sewer ser-
vice to all 'developed property within its
city limits.
The privy of old gave way to' septic
tanks a vast improvement, to be sure -
but city-wide sewage collection and treat-
ment represented the ultimate in conve-
nience and public health.
Septic tank technology has advanced
through the years, as has environmental
awareness of the need to insure that septic
tanks not threaten water supplies or public
waterways.
Nonetheless, few would argue that sep-
tic tanks are the preferred disposal option
for residential subdivisions.
It is against this background that we are:
pleased to see Bartow city commissioners
question the growing approval of septic
tanks in subdivisions in newly-annexed
areas of the city.
Bartow has shown good judgment in
working to annex property before it is
developed to someone else's standard.
What concerns us is the lack of emphasis
.on insisting that residential developers
provide sanitary sewer service in their sub-
divisions in niewly-annexed areas.
The city is extending water lines to new
developments on a regular basis, and for"
years has been willing to string new power
lines almost anywhere to bring more cus-
tomers to its lucrative electric utility.
But when it comes to collection of
sewage and pumping it to the city's treat-
ment plant a more challenging and
expensive proposition than delivery of
water and electricity interest of the city
and the developers has been subdued.
Last month, commissioners said they
want to see'an analysis of the feasibility of
runng sewer service to the Connersville
community, which is becoming the next
major residential growth area for Bartow.
According to finance department fig-
ures submitted last week, the city makes
46.7 percent more profit per home on
sewer service than it does on water service
($393.60 per year versus $268.20 per year).


That does not take into consideration the
cost of extending sewer lines to new devel-
opments, a cost typically borne by devel-
opers.
Whenever a proposal to serve a subdivi-
sion with septic tanks is questioned, the
typical response is that "the health depart-
ment allows them," sometimes followed
by a quieter "and it's cheaper for thedevel-
oper."
Both are true..
But we would like to see these issues put
ahead of what the health department
allows and what the developer (and ulti-
mately the homebuyer) pays:
What is in the best long-term interest
of the immediate area?
What is in the best long-term interest
of the homebuyers?
What is in the best long-term interest
of public health?
What is the best long-term public pol-
icy of a municipality when it comes to the,
disposal of sewage wastes?
If the answer to each of these questions
is "septic tanks," so be it.
But if cities have been correct in building
and expanding municipal sew-age collec-.,
tion and' treatment, we would ask: "So
what makes this new area different?"
The objective' should be to insure that
the city's own standards -not just mini-
mum health department requirements -
are met.
The long-term impact on the community
should outweigh the quest to pursue the
cheapest solution.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Donald Trump on the Wall


. In the paper last week there was a really big ad
inviting everyone who wanted to get extraordinarily
rich to come to anAtlanta hotel on a Sunday afternoon
to hear Donald Trump tell us how he did it.
It didn't say Donald Trump would be there in per-
son, though. I called my daughter-in-law, Carol Sims,
- who is a very sharp business woman and knows all
about business financing, and invited her to go with
me.
When we got there, the place was packed and there
were a lot of men wearing dark suits herding the
curiosity seekers into a room about the.size of a foot-
Sball field with bleachers. It was cold in there. I guess
they were counting on all the warm bodies to raise the
Temperature.
SWe were each given a notebook, a ballpoint pen
and a name tag.
S A man with a microphone sticking out of his head
came in and told us to shake hands with each other
and introduce ourselves. If we had done that, we
Shouldn't be finished yet. I already knew Carol, of
course, who was seated to the right of me, so I intro-
duced myself to the fellow on my left.
He had brought his own notebook and pen. He was
Sa really big gentleman in a pin striped suit who
looked like he was used to going to meetings. I didn't
Sell when he almost destroyed my hand. I could tell
That he was serious about becoming the next million-
Saire, if he wasn't already.
All of a sudden, the lights dimmed and Donald
STrump appeared on the front wall of the room. He
Swas on film and talking really loud. He seemed to be
About 20 feet tall and had his hair combed forward
Instead of backward.
He kept pursing his lips like he didn't want to let
anything really important pass through them and pro-
ceeded to tell us how to make it in real estate without
really trying.
I had already "made it" in real estate, but found his
; methods really interesting. While I was fooling
around selling houses to people looking for a home,
; he was thinking on a much larger scale.
S For instance one of the things he told us about was
putting an option on Mar Alago in Palm Beach, selling
all of the antique furniture in the zillion or so rooms,
Shaving it-duplicated, replacing the valuable antiques
with the copies of the furniture and using the money
to buy the property. I think that is what he said.
That was all very interesting, but it wouldn't work


.They 'used to be called
"rumors," a one-size-fits-all term
for stuff that couldn't be verified.
With the advent of 'the.
Internet,' which at one time
enjoYed the same reverence as the
library ("I know it must be true, I
saw it on the Internet!"), the pro-
fusion with which rumors were
created, and spread around the
world called for a more dignified
term. :
The "urban legend" was born.
Like your garden variety
rumor, the urban legend took an
unlikely but conceivably true
story,' and with each telling, it,
gained more credibility.
Some even grew roots from
almost first-hand witness reports,
as in '"I heard a guy in the check-
out line at the grocery. store say
he knows it's. true because his
next door neighbor's third
cousin's second wife said her
hairdresser had a custoIler who
was there when it happened."
I mean, there's just nothing
like an eye-witness account,
right?
The inexhaustible supply .of
electrons available to the Internet
made it possible to transmit these
verifiable truths from friend to
relative'to stranger to friend to
everybody in your address book
with a speed unseen since kudzu
took over the eroded roadsides in
South Georgia.
In response to this came a
website known as Snopes, which
dedicates itself to trying to trace,
down the source aid validity of
these urban legends. It has
defrocked such widely accepted
myths as the one that's been
going around since my child-


hood: that you can tell how a mil-
itary hero died by the number of
feet his sculptured horse has on
the ground. Okay, that's an awful
sentence; in your spare time,.'
rewrite it.
Every time I try to check out a.
new urban legend in Snopes, I get
so fascinated reading the site,
especially under headings with
titillating captions such as
"Titillating Urban Legends," that
I lose track of my original pur-
pose.
Anyway, when I read a story
this week 'that. the .average
American knows more about
"The Simpsons" TV show than
about. the First Amendment, my
first reaction was to go to my
bookmarked Snopes site.
But wait, this is.a story from
the Associated Press, based on a
study conducted .by the
AMcCormick Tribune Freedom
Museum in Chicago. That institu-
tion will dedicate itself to educat-
ing the public about the First
Amendment. And high time.
According to its survey, only
one-fourth of Aiericans. could
name even one of the five free-
doms guaranteed by the First
Amendment. while more than
half of them could name at:least
two of the five; Simpsons charac-
ters.
In an abundance of caution,
the AP, listed them for us ... the
First Amendment freedoms, not
the Simpson characters.
They are Freedom of Speech,
Press, Religion, Assembly and
Petition for Redress of
Grievances. I usually wouldn't
capitalize all those words, but in
case there are any Simpsons fans

in Tucker, Ga., where I live. My house, for instance,
isn't filled with valuable antiques.
The contents of my home wouldn't pay for it if I
sold them. I would wind up with a couple of thousand
dollars and be sitting around on an orange crate or
sleeping in the car.
I will say that it made for an interesting afternoon.
I wonder what the Donald is up to today.

myself'amriong the top one-tenth
of one percent of First
Amendment scholars, and in the
bottom 78 percent of Simpsons
scholars. I can name more of the
Seven Dwarfs than I can of the
Simpsons characters. I know
there'is Bart. That's all. In my
opinion, that's enough..
.Nl Mre people can name all
three judges on "American Idol"
tha can name the Five
Freedoms. I know them: the
Babe, the Jerk, and the Other Guy,
right?
Thirty-eight percent of those
pooled thought that the Fifth
Amendment protection against
self-incrimination was found' in
'the' First Amendment (thereby
giving rise to the popular legal
expression. "Taking the First")
while about one in five believed
that the First guaranteed their
right to own a pet.
SThat, of course, is ii the
Second Amendment, made wide-
ly known by the popular bumper
sticker: "They'll take away my,
,kitty cat when they pry it from
my cold, dead fingers."
I always thought Jay Leno had
to cast a wide net to find the intel-
lectually-challenged people he
interviews on his "Jay-Walking"
segment ofthe Tonight Show.
Turns out he's .interviewing
the cream of the crop.

commissioned to try to clean up four
years earlier.
In 1911, Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece,

Florida Produce To Be Sold In The U.K.


Grocery shoppers in the
United Kingdom are seeing their
winter days brightened by a ray
of Florida sunshine.
Waitrose a prominent re-
tail chain with 180 stores
throughout the U.K. is featur-
ing fresh Florida grapefruit,
sweet corn and blueberries as
part of a marketing campaign
developed by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services that runs
through May.
"The United Kingdom market-
ing promotion is the latest in our
series of campaigns to increase
sales of Florida-grown agricul-
tural products both domestically
and abroad," Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "In the past five years,
these marketing efforts have
helped boost retail sales by more
than $1 billion. That's good news
for Florida's growers and our
state's economy."
Each Florida product will be
featured for two or more weeks
during the campaign. Promo-
tions will include in-store sam-


plings, recipe cards, and feature
articles in Waitrose's magazine
.which reaches hundreds of thou-
sands of British consumers.
In addition, the department's
executive chef will conduct dem-
onstrations in Waitrose's flag-
ship outlets that have kitchen
and audience facilities.
The events are designed to'
draw shoppers, media represen-
tatives, chefs and restaurant
owners.
This year's expanded Wai-
trose campaign follows 2005's pi-
lot program that featured Flor-
ida sweet corn exclusively.
As a result of in-store sam-
plings and demonstrations, Wai-
trose reported a 125 percent in-
crease in sales of Florida sweet
corn versus the same period in
2004.
The pilot program .cost
$26,100 with Waitrose and the
department each paying half.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Serv-
ices is statutorily mandated to
provide professional marketing
services to Florida's agricultural

Attorney General Charlie
Crist and former Attorney Gen-
eral Bob Butterworth, joined by
University Presidents T.K.
Wetherell of Florida State Uni-
versity and Monsignor Franklin
Casale of St. Thomas University,
announced a new online national
clearinghouse and research cen-
ter to help in the fight against
fraud and other economic crimes.
The Center for the Study of
Economic Crimes. jointly oper-
ated by FSU's College of Crimi-
nology and Criminal Justice and
the St. Thomas University
School of Law, will help identify
emerging trends in fraudulent
activity, promote enforcement
strategies and conduct academic
research into the origins, pat-
terns, effects and control of
fraud.
The Center will focus on fraud
and other economic crimes af-
fecting consumers, business and
government with an emphasis
on crimes that cross jurisdic-
tional boundaries.
The Center's initiatives in-
clude establishment of a new
website, to help authorities fight
fraud.
"Scam artists use the latest in
technology to take advantage of
unsuspecting victims," said
Crist. "This website provides in-
vestigators with a high-tech tool
to fight back and regain the up-
per hand on behalf of the citi-
zens of our state."
The Center's primary strategy
includes three major initiatives:
The launching of
http://www.FraudUpdate.com, a
web-based tracking resource to
highlight major cases and en-
forcement operations nationally
and throughout the English-
speaking world. The website also
includes the latest alerts to help
consumers and businesses avoid
being victimized by scams.
Periodic national confer-
ences for investigators, prosecut-
ing attorneys, corporate leaders,
researchers and others to hear
from experts about emerging
patterns of fraudulent activity
and to explore strategies for
fighting it.
Academic research into the
phenomenon of fraud and re-
lated crimes, pattern detection,
victimization and public policy
issues.
The Attorney General's Office
provided the initial funding for
the Center through a 2004 set-
tlement with Sprint Communica-
tions that directed $250,000 to
FSU. Additional funding was

E-Comp Plan To Reward Teachers


Education Commissioner
John.L. Winn and K--12 Public
Schools Chancellor Oheri Pier-
son Yecke have unveiled Flori-
da's "E-Comp," or "Effectiveness
Compensation," plan, which
awards high-performing teach-
ers with annual bonuses based
on the academic progress of their
students.
The "E-Comp" plan i" an addi-
tion to Florida's existing multi-
faceted program for rewarding
educational excellence through
individual teacher and school
recognition.
"Traditionally, teachers are
paid based on their level of edu-
cation and years of experience,
neither of which result in signifi-
cantly higher student learning,"
said Commissioner Winn. "If we
are to attract and keep the best
and brightest teachers, then we
must reward excellence in what
matters most student learn-
ing. As it is with any other pro-
fession, compensation for teach-
ers should be based, in part, on
their results, talent and exper-
tise."
The "E-Comp" plan consists of
two parts, including a require-
ment that all Florida teachers
must have a portion of their sal-
ary based on their students'
learning gains.
In addition, the plan calls for
those teachers who are recog-
nized as outstanding to receive a
bonus of five percent of their sal-
ary.
Outstanding teachers are
identified in two ways:
For those teachers who
teach subjects tested by a state-
wide assessment, the state will
identify the top 10 percent of all
teachers statewide at the ele-
mentary, middle, ard high
schools levels based upon their
students' achievement gains over
the previous year. Beginning
with the 2006-07 school year,
these outstanding teachers will
receive a bonus of five percent of
their base salary.
For those teachers who do
not teach subjects tested by a
statewide assessment, individual
school districts will develop a
system for identifying teachers
who are considered outstanding
based upon their students' learn-


ing gains.' No later than the
2007-08 school year, these teach
ers also will be rewarded with a
bonus equal to fivepercent of
their base salary.,
A newly-created website
www.firn.edu/doe/profdev/re-
ward/index.htm, provides addi
tional information :on the, "E
Comp" plan.
Included is a summary of the
plan, answers to frequently
asked questions, a chart compare.
ing teacher reward strategies
implemented in other states, re
actions to the "E-Comp" plan
from national experts and com
prehensive information on other
reward programs already avail
able to Florida teachers.
Currently, Florida rewards
teachers in a number of ways, in
cluding awards that honor out
standing educators, such as the
Teacher of the Year and Milken
awards; bonuses for earning ad
vanced degrees and national cer
tification; and bonuses based on
performance determined .by the
number of students 1a teacher:

scores on the Advanced Place

Baccalaureate (IB) exams.
"The 'E-Comp' plan completes
Florida's array of existing re
wards programs by recognizing
individual teachers for students'
academic growth," said Chancel.
lor Yecke. "Many of these teach.
ers are beating the odds, helping
their students exceed their
learning gains expectations, anc
in some cases, helping some o
our most struggling students
succeed."
Since July 2002, Florida law
has required that a portion of
every teacher's pay be based on
student achievement, and school
administrators and instructional
personnel who demonstrate out.
standing performance must be
awarded a bonus of five percent
of their individual salary.
The "E-Comp" plan provides
school districts with a minimum
framework for meeting this law
Districts are encouraged to re
ward more high-performing
teachers than required by law.
As currently prescribed by
law, the "E-Comp" plan will be
funded by the school districts'

Top 10 Consumer Complaints Announced


It's a definite problem, espe-
cially in storm season, and Flor-
ida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson has announced that
price-gouging has once again
made it into the list of tdp 10
complaints for calendar year
2005.
Last year was the first year
price-gouging even made it to
the top 10 list following an un-
precedented hurricane season.
The No. 1 complaint in 2005
involved violations of Florida's
No Sales Law.
Price-gouging ranked third.
The price-gouging law is acti-
vated when the governor de-
clares a state of emergency,
which occurred several times in
2005. There were 3,464 written
price-gouging complaints since
Jan. 2005.
"It is cear that word has got-
ten out to consumers that they
have a place to turn when a per-
son or business is trying to un-
fairly make a huge profit during
an emergency situation," Bron-
son said. "This department in-
vestigates and aggressively
takes action on price-gouging
complaints, and Ihope this infor-
mation sends a message to those
who would contemplate such
egregious actions when citizens
are trying to protect themselves
in a hurricane or other emer-
gency."
Written complaints about vio-
lations of-the state's Do Not Call
List led the top 10 list with 4,120
complaints.
Bronson took legal action
against 33 companies in 2005 for
Do Not Call violations and ob-
tained more than $102,000 in
fines against.violators.
Travel/vacation plans ranked
second with 3,909 written com-
plaints.
The Department's Division of
Consumer Services is the clear-


inghouse for consumer com-
plaints for Florida. The division
regulates nearly a dozen indus-
tries and can take a number of
actions against those in violation
of state law including levying
fines, revoking registrations or
Turning cases over to Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement for
criminal action.
The division also tries to me-
diate complaints for consumers
involving industries that are not
regulated by the department by
contacting them on behalf of con-
sumers and working to' resolve
the disputes.
In 2005, the division received
a total of 30,315 written com-
plaints compared with 23,718 in
2004. The department was able
to recover more than $5.3 million
in refunds and services for con-
sumers this past year.

plaint categories:

FWC Moves To InCrease

Alligator Gar Protection


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has strengthened protec-
tion for alligator gar.
Effective July 1, no one will be
allowed to take or possess alliga-
tor gar in Florida waters without
a special permit.
Alligator gar, which get their
name from having the body of a
typical gar and a head that.
somewhat resembles that of an
alligator, live in rivers and
brackish waters across the
southeastern United States from
Florida to Texas and into Mex-
ico.
However, in Florida they do
not exist farther east than the
Choctawhatchee River, which
empties into the Gulf of Mexico
at Destin.
Alligator gar can exceed 300
pounds and grow to more than
six feet long, according to Fred
Cross, an FWC fisheries biolo-
gist.


Cross said alligator gar and
other gar species are important
to their ecosystem and play a
role in the healthy ecological bal-
ance offish communities.
"Their role in a healthy river
system is just as important as
any other native species," he
said.
Cross said alligator gar need
protection in Florida, because
sampling methods over the past
couple of years "suggest the
population has declined substan-
tially."
He said trends in other states
reflect similar Conditions. In
some areas of its historic range
the fish is now gone. Recent
studies in Alabama, Mississippi
and Louisiana suggest alligator
gar are very susceptible to over-
fishing.
Cross said the action by the
Commission could result in spe-
cific research in the future di-
rected at alligator gar.

Polk County Elections Office

March 3, to offer residents a "
last chance" to register to vote in
time to participate in the April 4
city elections.
Residents who are not regis-
tered to vote, but would like to

tion, have until Monday, March
6 to submit their completed
voter registration form to the

at the intersection of Highway
60 and Broadway.


It was a dark and dreary Fri-
day night. Waterlogged clouds
swirled overhead while the cres-
cent moon languished alone in
the abyss above the earth's
wicked veil.
The Devils had come out to
play this night.
In the distance, a dog barked.
Bats flew haphazardly overhead.
An umpire yelled, "Play ball!"
And the Bartow High School
Lady Jackets' softball team be-
gan their domination of the
Kathleen Red Devils, with an 11
0 spanking at West Side Park
in Lakeland.
Kaly Flood was the starting
pitcher, with the freshman re-
cording her first win as a Lady
Jacket. Rachael Jackson and
Whitney Little came in relief in
Sthe fourth and fifth innings, re-
spectfully, to exorcise the Devils
in the record book.
At the plate, Little led the hit-
ting, going two for two and scor-
ing, two runs. Rachael Giddens
was also two for two with two


RBI, while Kara Rutenbar was
two for three with three RBI, in-
cluding a big home run from
"The Big One" . a three-
bouncer to the 300-foot fence..
"Lady Di" Diana Thompson
and Courtney Latham were both
two for three, with "Lady Di"
scoring two runs and Latham
with two RBI. Hard-hitting
Elizabeth Howell was also two
for three at the plate.

On Saturday morning, the 5 -
0 Bishop Kenny Crusaders of
Jacksonville came to/ Lady
Jacket Stadium in their first-
ever meeting with the Bugs. In a-
battle of undefeated, the Jack-.
ets came out on top with an 8 0
shut-out, their second in less
than 24 hours.
Starting pitcher for the Bar-
tow Bugs was Candace Howell (4
- 0), who brushed off 10 Bishops,
at the plate, walked three and
allowed just one Bishop base hit.
Kaly Flood entered the game in
the final inning of play, striking
out one, to clean up the Crusad-


ers and preserve the victory.
With the victory, BHS im-;
proves its season record to 5 0.
Bishop Kenny launched a few
deep balls from home plate, but
Mallory Butler in left field and
Whitney Little in center initi-
ated Bartow's famed ."Out Field
Fly Rule."
The best example of this (offi-

SMusings From God's Penman


Dead-to-the-World Man Walking


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
One morning this week, I
woke up with a black eye.
How I got it still baffles me. I
have my suspicions, of course, but
some things are better left to
themselves, no matter how lonely
they may get.
In getting older, I have realized
certain things'are changing in my
body. For example, I now find
myself walking in my sleep. This-
is a new experience for me and
I'm not' sure what it means or
what I should do about it.
On the positive side, walking
in my sleep is about the only exer-
cise I really get these days, so I
should not complain too much. It
is nice to know at my age, some
things are still working- even if
it is when I am unconscious.
My problem has escalated to
the point where I have begun
wearing sneakers to bed. Of
course, I don't wear anything else,
and when I find myself three
blocks down the street, my sneak-
ers had better be PDF (pret-
ty dashing fast).
Walking in my sleep is not that
bad, except for my mysterious
black eye.
Not only am I walking in my
sledp, but also my wife has
accused me of talking in my sleep.
Actually, in my own defense, talk-
ing in my sleep, is the only time I
get a word in edgewise. I guess in
the middle of the night, I'm trying
to make up for this lack during
the day.
Lately, I have talked so much


in my sleep I wake up a little
hoarse, which just may explain
why I have been eating like one
lately.
SUnfortunately, my talking dur-
ing the night has kept my wife
awake so i much, she ,recently
requested I start preaching in my
sleep, so she can get to sleep.
I used to have trouble falling
asleep at night. I tried counting
sheep, but their bleating kept me
awake. When I lay there wide.
awake, I began worrying about
those sheep. Did someone feed
them? And, amin going to have to
shear all those sheep myself?
Each night I try to get in 40
winks, but by the time I reach
number 33, 1 lose count and have
to start all over again. The older I
get, the more my sleep resembles
a salad-- well tossed.
Actually, noises in the night
upset me the most. Sleep has a.
way of bringing out the noise in
our house, from a dripping faucet
down the hall to a creaking win-
dow shutter in the living room.
It's amazing how intelligent
these noises in the night can be.
They are quiet until I'm just
about ready to drift off into la-la-
land.
For example, as far as we know
-we have no mice in our house. We
have never seen any evidence of
such critters in our blessed domi-
cile. Yet, in the middle of the
night, I hear these little critters.
gnawing the wall right by my
head. How they know where I
sleep and when I go to sleep is one
of the mysteries of these diminu-

People often oppose beauty to utility, as if these.
concepts are somehow at odds with each other. But,
isn't it actually, the case that beautiful things can
be useful, and moreover, that beauty itself is emi-
nently useful? Truly, beauty has tremendous value,
even inestimable value. Beauty adds joy. and
j poignancy to our sometimes dreary lives, and pre-
tending that we can live without beauty is like pre-
tending that. we can live without love. Indeed, we
would live hopelessly dreary, impoverished lives
without love or beauty, and without these most
essential of things we would, as it were, wither and
dry out. Another way in which beauty has value is
in the way that it inspires the "better angels of our
nature." One of the best Ways to humanize and civ-
ilize people is by exposing them to' beauty, either
through the arts or the natural world. Beauty is'
not just the province of the arts. Science itself can
be beautiful, for instance, in the elegance of an inci-.
sive explanation..And finally, we should remember
that when-it comes to people; there are some things
that are more important than physical beauty, and
Though we travel the world over to find they are moral and spiritual beauty. So, we should

tive, night stalkers.
Through the years, I have tried
many things to help me get to
sleep at night.
For some reason I have no
trouble going to sleep during the
daytime, particularly in the after-
noon. I call these "power naps."
The Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage has another name for
them, which I cannot repeat here
for obvious reasons, my health
being the primary one.
I've tried everything to help me
fall asleep at night. Once I placed
my shoes and socks right next to
my bed before I went to sleep.
Although it had its intended
effect upon me, it also had an
adverse effect upon the other
occupant of my bed.
No matter when I go to bed nor
how long I have slept, I always
need just one minute more of
sleep. Why is it I can hear the
drip of a faucet down the hall, but
I can't hear the clanging alarm
clock at.my head?
Eventually, when I do full*
asleep, the crack of dawn awak-
ens me.
My wife, trying to assist me in
my nocturnal dilemma, suggested
I try some hot cocoa right before
going to sleep. For the most part,
it does work. My only difficulty
with hot cocoa is if I don't drink it
quickly enough, I begin nodding
halfway through and spill it on
my chest.
I can assure you it's a real eye
opener.
I am reminded of a verse of
scripture that addresses this sub-


ject.
David, the Psalmist observes,
"It is vain for you to rise up early,
to sit up late, to eat the bread of
sorrows: for so he giveth his
beloved sleep" (Psalms 127:2
KJV).
And then, who could overlook
Psalms 121:3-4 (KJV), "He [God]
will not suffer thy foot to be
moved: he that keepeth thee will
not slumber. Behold, he that
keepeth Israel shall neither slum-
ber nor sleep."
Now, back to my black eye. I
really have no recollection'of how
this happened. My wife has tried
explaining it to me by pointing
out, most correctly, that lately I
have been walking in my sleep.
No argument from me.' .
SThen she explained that, while
I was walking in my sleep the
other night, I walked into the
bathroom door, causing the black
eye.
I'm not in any position to ques-
tion her, but I noticed she was
rubbing her' right fist most ten-
derly.

SFort Meade couple J.R. and

Her husband, who retired re-.

Peniel is a residential drug

Evangelist Cathy Moore of
Open Door Ministry is in revival
at Faith and Deliverance in
Christ Outreach through Friday,

The church is located at 1275-

Boulevard; in Bartow.
Joan Harris is pastor.


but on hearing my numbers she
seeaiied surprised and suddenly
interested.
"You're the second person to
come in this morning with' those
numbers," she said. "I feel like'
playing the lottery."
"I can tell you about somne-
thing better than winning the
lottery," I replied.
S'"You can? What is it?" she
asked.
And I knew I was again in the
right place at the right time to
tell another person how to find
peace with God.:
According to the Bible, peace
comes in three dimensions:
peace with God, the peace of
God, and'peace on earth.
Dr. Billy Graham's first best-'
selling book, titled "Peace with
God," was based on Jeremiah'
29:13; "And you will seek Me and
find Me, when you search for Me
with all your.heart."
SIn it, he concludes that peace
with God is available to all who
respond in faith to His love.
The prophet, Isaiah, ex-
plained that. peace with God is
available because of what hap-
peried at.the cross, writing: "The
chastisement of our peace was.
upon Him, and with His stripes
we are healed" (Isaiah 53:5).
When faith appropriates full for-
giveness, peace with God is as-
sured.
Each morning I quote a Bible
verse that 'speaks of the second
dimension of peace the peace
of God (Philippians 4:7). Strange
as it may seem, some people.
have peace with God, but do not
have the peace of God.
I once read the letter of a
woman who had been living with


a time bomb for more t
years. During that time,

FCAT Claws
by Laura Johnson
-With the FCAT tests over, student cu-
riosity rises' as they attempt to find out
about the effects of this test on their fu-
ture high school career, not to mention the
implications on their college acceptance.
The Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test, better known as the FCAT, contains two
parts--FCAT Sunshine State Standard (SSS)
and the FCAT Norm-Referenced Test (NRT),
which measures a student's knowledge of
writing, reading mathematics, and science.
The tenth graders took the reading and
mathematics section of the FCAT, whereas
the eleventh graders took the science test.
Alex Oommen, a freshman, took the read-
ing and math test this year. "I think the tests
are useful as they help in preparing for SAT
and ACT which help in college applica-
tions. The time teachers spend teaching these
classes actually benefit me because then I
know how to handle every type of ques-


Through BHS
tion even if I do not know the answers."
As graduation requires passing the FCAT,
this test can affect a students success. In
case they do not pass the test, they only re-
ceive a certificate of completion, instead
of a diploma at graduation. Also, not pass-
ing can cause them to take classes such as
reading, instead of hav-
ing a chance to take an elective.
S"In my opinion, they should include history
in FCAT and students should have an option
to choose what subject they want to be test-
ed on," said BHS senior Meghan Forrister.
Recently, controversies have arisen over
the introduction of the science test for juniors
instead of sophomores. This change resulted
because according to the Commissioner ofEd-
ucation, "students are better prepared to take
this test in their junior year of high school."
With the pressure ofthese tests out ofthe way,
students can concentrate more on theirfinal ex-
ams and enjoy their life as high school students.

An online survey read that 81 percent of
teens indicated concern about organized

reported frequently feeling overwhelmed
by responsibilities such as schoolwork,

Teens' crammed schedules result in them
having little time to "kick back" and relax.
"I don't have any time for myself,"
Katherin Black, an IB sophomore and JV

Manatees have resigned in Florida for 39
years. Nicknamed the Sea cow, they roam
through the waters of the Florida rivers and
lakes. Some fear extinction may threaten
them and struggle to protect the species.
They live primarily in the peninsula of
Florida, but extend as far north as Virginia.
Florida manatees move into warm water
when the water temperature drops below
about 68 degrees. The number of mana-.
tees have declined in number over the
past hundred years. Manatees probably
live a maximum of 50 to 60 years. "I like
their gracefulness," said Johnny Popop-
ca, a freshman at Bartow High School.
The Marine industry of Florida put
them on the endangered list because of
the decline of the species over the last
few years. Many people think that they
should be more protected, but others
disagree with the notion. "I think there
should be more security between the
boaters and the manatees," said Amy
Berch, a senior at Bartow High School.
More than 77,400 boats registered in
Florida for the 2005-06 seasons. Due
to their dark color and slow swimming,
manatees often obtain injuries from the
propellers. The engine propellers cause'
the most water craft related deaths. The
incidents with the boats cause life-threat-
ening internal injuries to the manatee.
Even with manatee legal protection,
poachers and vandals have another rea-
son to add to the manatee deaths, food.

Now conservationist have started to re-
move the Manatee from the endangered
list in Florida because of an increase in
manatee survival. A decision to remove
them from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission would have lit-
tle practical impact on the Manatee protec-
tions, because the marine mammal would
remain on the federal endangered list.
Manatee advocates say having it would
send a dangerous message to the public,
that the sea cows have a safe chance from
extinction. This argument goes way back
to 1967 when the disagreement started
about putting them on the Federal list.
In protecting them, the state put speed
zones on miles"of Florida's water ways.
Forcing boaters to slow to as little as 5
mph to avoid hurting unseen manatees.
The Coastal Conservation Association
[CCA] petitioned that the commission
should rethink the endangered status of
the manatee, arguing that it did not meet
the new requirements. It gave research,
showing manatees not just holding on,
but growing in number. The Commis-
sion, meeting May 28-30 in Kissimmee,
Florida has to decide whether to reclas-
sify the manatee. The research staff rec-
ommended transferring on grounds that
the manatee does not qualify for the en-
dangered status under current state rules.
Due to the official rules of the endan-
gered list, the manatee named no lon-
ger endangered. Removed from the list
these graceful, silent swimmers still
deserve public caution and attention.

Lent Sends

by Krystina Anthony
For forty days, Catholics observe the
holiday of Lent, a time, of penance,
prayer, preparations for or recollections
of baptisms, and the celebration of Easter.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and
lasts for forty days. It involves fast-
ing and giving up something enjoyable.
Lent ends at midnight on Holy Saturday.
From the fifth to ninth centuries, the
Pope strictly enforced fasting. He only
allowed one meal a day, but meat and

Mr. Hilgey

Science

Teacher


by Ashley Cullins
For Bartow High's newest Science
teacher Martin Hilgey, teaching proved
an accidental discovery, a work of fate.
S"In college, I was asked by one of
my professors to be a Teacher's As-
sistant for a semester. At the end
of the semester, I realized just -how
much I had enjoyed the experience."
Hilgey graduated from SUNY Stonybrook
in New York with a degree in Planetary Ge-
ology and newfound passion forteaching.
His first teaching job came in New York
City, followed by a stint as a teacher on
Long Island. Hilgey recently relocated to
Florida in order to be nearer to his family;
"Currently," said Hilgey, "I'm liv-
ing in Kissimee, but I'm in the
process of moving to Bartow."
Though accidentally stumbling upon his
career, Hilgey has found teaching an ex-
tremely rewarding experience. "The most
rewarding aspect of teaching is when the
results of your hard work become appar-
ent, and when you can.see that the stu-
dents have learned something from what
you have been trying to-teach them."
It seems that students, too, have reason
to be thankful for Hilgey's career choice.
"He's really new," said Amber Gill,
"but he seems like a nice teacher who
definitely knows what he's talking about."
Brimming with interesting sto-
ries and a passion for teaching, it ap-
pears that Hilgey fits right in at Bartow.


Mr. Higey spends afew minutes to refresh his min
before his next Biology lesson.

Another way to prepare includes log-
ging on to the College Board website
and viewing examples of essays. "Ev-
ery once in a while I look at essays,
so I won't be scrambling in eleventh
grade," said freshman Lauren Kalogridis.
"While writing make sure to have
a well developed topic and stick to
it," said Delk. Essays that do not
stay on topic receive a. reduced score.

Flour Babies Invade BHS


by Laura Stewart
As Mrs. Smith-Wallace began hand-.

she announced for the next 2 weeks
that her students alone would be re-

began most students could not believe the

from a"what is that," all the way to "aww

However within the first 8 hours of hav-

Band Prepares to Visit the City

That Never Sleeps


.by Kayla Mason
On March 12, Mr. Eckman along with
band students will leave for New York.
They will participate in many events,
including attending some famous Broad-
way shows like Wicked and Phantom of
the Opera. The band plans to stay at a
hotel, and they will also be participating
in the famous St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Some of the band students plan on not
going, because of other activities they
participate in or the amount of makeup
work they will have. "I'm not going to
New York because I really need to catch
up on my school work," said Matt Gro-
ver, a Sophomore at Bartow High School.
The majority that will go look forward


to a long bus ride, and a chance to share
memories with band members. "I'm re-
ally exited about going, and I hope I
don't get too exhausted on the bus ride
there," Kayla Blackwell, a Freshman at
BHS said. Band has been looking forward
to this trip for a number of months, even
though they will miss a few school days.
The main thing most of the students
look forward to will be visiting Ground
Zero, where the World Trade Center
buildings once stood, and of course
gazing up on at the Statue of Liberty.
With all-the show business in New
York, this trip might give Band stu-
dents a glimpse of what career they
may pursue one day in the Big Apple.


Audio Adrenaline Splits


After 15 Years of Music


by Brett Horn
Conformation of a break up overruled
rumors this past January-when the band
Audio Adrenaline announced they de-
cided to separate. A doctor demanded
the split up of Audio A because the lead
singer, Mark Stuart, after 15 years, of
rock and-roll, began to lose his voice.
Stuart's doctor told him that he
needed to stop the.. singing or he
.might face serious complications- to
his voice box. The band decided that
they should go in different directions.
With the final year comes the final CD.
.This album will contain a mixed CD
with 2 new songs, and a DVD. "Audio
A is an awesome band that is influen-
tial and helps you through hard times. I
can't wait 'to go see their farewell concert!


I have listened to them for the past five
years, and their music is so awesome. I
think that it is extremely sad that they
are breaking up." said Amanda Beck,
a sophomore at Bartow High School.
Even some people who do not enjoy the
Chiistian music scene listen to the band
and understandtheirmessage. "I listened to
Audio Afor their upbeat tempo and mean-
ingful lyrics. Their band hasn't done much
for me in the ways of life, but their music
was nice to listen to. I really don't plan
on seeing them. Their break up didn't im-
pact me, but it did bring back memories,"
said Brittany Crews, a col-
lege student at PCC.
Fans have a last chance to appreciate
Audio A at "Rock the Universe" at Uni-
versal Studios on September 9, 2006.
