Hearing Tonight


On Mid-Florida


Center Zoning


A public hearing will be held
tonight on an ordinance to rezone
a parcel of land on West Polk
Street for Mid-Florida Center,
Inc.. but banning use of the facil-
ity as a residential group home
for some of the agency's clients.
Previous efforts by the agency
to establish group homes for sub-
stance abusers in residential
neighborhoods have been met
with strong opposition from
neighbors.
Tonight's rezoning of a build-
ing at 750 West Polk Street is
from R-3 apartmentsi to P-1
(professional offices). A compan-
ion ordinance would amend the
city's comprehensive plan on that
parcel from medium density resi-
dential to office use.
P-1 zoning usually allows resi-
dential group homes, but a provi-
sion in this rezoning ordinance
stipulates "restricted to profes-
sional office use only."
The ordinances will be consid-
ered tonight on second ifinal.i
reading, and a public hearing is
required on all second readings.
The city commission will hold


a work session this afternoon at
5:30, and will reconvene for its
regular business meeting at 6:30.
Other items on the agenda:
First reading on an ordi-
nance to close the unused street
right-of-way at the intersection of
Stuart Street and East Lake
Drive. and on two related ordi-
nances to designate a 1.3-acre
parcel at the north end of the site
of the new Michael Holley auto
dealership on U.S. Highway 98
North as highway commercial
property.
Proclamation of the Great
American Clean-Up Event, to be
held on March 11.
Appointments to the
Community Redevelopment
Agency. the Beautification
Advisory Board, and the Mayor's
Youth Council.
Approval of the form of the
ballot for the April 4 city election.
Discussion of an ordinance to
create a second alternate member
of the Board of Adjustment.
Discussion of appointments
to the Historic Architecture
Review Board.

FIREFIGHTERS spent several hours in the hot sun Friday, com-
bating a mostly smoky fire at Organic Matters, at 4305 U.S. Highway
17, south of Bartow. Located in the old Kaplan plant. Organic Matters
produces animal feed. An outside burner, used to create the fuel to dry
the feed ingredients, caught fire, not an unusual occurrence at the
plant, according to Bartow Deputy Chief Bobby Pitman. This time.
however, a lively breeze blew embers onto the roof of the building,


catching the insulation on fire and sending smoke across Highway 17.
Bartow called for mutual aid from Polk County, and tanker trucks
brought water to the site from the old Food Lion store in Bartow. Two
portable water tanks were set up, and filled continuously by the
tankers. The water pipe from the hydrant on site didn't supply enough
water pressure to fight the fire, which is under investigation. (Staff

'Ti!' Church Opens Bartow's

First Cab Company In 20 Years


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer
Members of Turning Point
Worship Center (formerly Bartow
Christian Assembly) have plenty
of experience providing- services
to the community, including oper-
ating two day cares, Gloryland
Express I. and II, and furnishing
free transportation to seniors.
Now, the church has stepped
up their service by opening a not-
for-profit cab company the first
taxi service in Bartow for about
two decades.
The church started the compa-
ny because they "felt there was a
real need," Rev. Tommy Presley,
pastor of Turning Point Worship


Center, said.
"It's been 20 years since
Bartow had a cab company, and
Bartow's really growing," he said.
S.E.C.A. (Southeast Christian
Assembly) Cab Company current-
ly has two taxis in service, but as
business increases, more will be
added, he said.
SMini-vans are used to trans-
port the clients, because they are
"more comfortable than cars and
easier to get in and out of," he
said. The company also plans to
offer wheelchair capability.
There are 'currently four dri-
vers on staff, including Reverend
Presley. Each driver was required
to have background screenings
with the Florida Department of


Law Enforcement and had to
obtain occupational licenses.
The company operates from 6
a.m. to6 p.m., but-may'eventual-
ly go to 24 hours, if the need aris-
es.
"We also.will be offering trips
to Tampa and Orlando airports.",
Reverend Presley said.. "We cover
all of Bartow. taking clients to
Lakeland, Winter Haven basi-
cally where ever they desire to go
. doctor appointments, grocery
shopping, or even back and forth
to work."
The company, can be reached
by calling 519-5794 or 559-9596.

After Forty Years, Haines City

Man Receives Purple Heart


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer


When a soldier is wounded in
the line of duty, America awards
his service with a Purple Heart.
Gerard Sawyer of Haines City
earned this distinction in 1967,
but he was recognized only this
Monday at the monthly Tiger
Bay meeting. ,
Sawyer entered the U.S.
Army in 1966, and was sent to
Vietnam in March 1967, where
he was cross-trained as a medic.
While at a bridge site with the
554th Engineering Brigade, a lo-
cal approached them while car-
rying an explosive which deto-


nated in a precursor to today's
suicide bombing attacks. ,
His injuries were not life-
threatening, but he was hospital-
ized. During his recovery, his
commanding officer told him
that-he would receive a Purple
Heart.
That Purple Heart never
came.
Sawyer didn't know what had
happened, but at the time the
lack of recognition didn't bother
him.
Now, however, he knows that'
the award is very important for
Veterans' Affairs purposes. He
wrote a letter to a member of
Congress two years ago, but he


never received a reply.
Recently he tried again by
contacting Senator Bill Nelson,
who "almost immediately" began
working with' his staff to start
the. process of verifying the
award with the Pentagon.
After leaving the Army, Saw-
yer began 'college, but then
dropped out to join the Air Force.
He was discharged after two
hitches because of a death in the
family.
After finishing school, he
spent most of his career in the'
grocery field, and currently
works at the Haines City Wal-
Mart.

75th Anniversary Nuggels

The Polk County Democrat
T Fifty years ago, only daily newspapers could afford the
zinc engraving plants to prepare photographs for repro-
duction. Community newspapers had to send:their pho-.:
tographs to engraving plants in other cities. Both the cost and
the time delay meant that few photographs were published in
community newspapers. The invention of a device called the
Scanagraver changed that, bring photo reproduction capability
to the community newspaper industry. The Scanagraver was a
lathe-like device. A photograph was placed under clear plastic
on one end of the cylinder of the "lathe," and a sheet of highly
flammable plastic was wrapped around the other end of the
cylinder. As the cylinder revolved, a tiny light scanned the pic-
ture and converted the reflected light into an electric charge.
That charge in turn went into a red hot needle that barely
touched the plastic at the other end of the cylinder. The needle
vibrated rapidly. burning the image into the plastic. The
Scanagraver broke down the image into a series of dots, produc-
ing an image almost identical to that produced by a zinc engrav-
ing. (Keep in mind, folks, this explanation isn't being written by
ar electrical engineer. It's being written by a 65-year-old who
used to operate the Scanagraver around the age of 15.) The,
Scanagraver enabled community newspapers to produce photo-
graphs at a fraction of the cost of zinc engravings, and without
the delay of sending photographs to an engraver. (To be contin-
ued.) S.L. Frisbie, IV

Editorial
.' ,, -,_= -:;~ ~ . _L


It will come as no surprise to anyone
who has read our comments on the ongo-
ing discussions of growth management
between the Bartow city commission and
the zoning board that, we are pleased that
at their next meeting the two bodies plan
to actually begin discussing ... managing
growth.
Thus far, the "discussion" has consisted.
of little more than lectures ,on how.
Florida's growth management code works,
or is supposed to work, and how the city
implements it. It has been an educational
process, but lacking in substantive discus-
sion of what Bartow should look like in,
future decades.
We have often observed that contrary to_
popular belief, the primary factor which
determines land utse is not zoning; it is
ownership. Zoning can, only prel-ent
things from happening, and usually with
limited success. It is ownership that drives
land use decisions.
Growth management can do little more
than facilitate decisions that are in the best
interest of the public, and then only if there.
is sufficient local leadership and resolve to
make it happen. .
At the close of the third lengthy joint
meeting of the city commission and the
zoning board last week, Mayor Leo
Longworth announced that at 'the next
joint meeting, "we want to get into the
nitty gritty of what we would like to see."
It is for that purpose that this series of
meetings was arranged, and we're glad to
see the focus coming around to that objec-
tive.
The two bodies also seem in agreement
that it is time to open the process to input
from the public. Thus far, the growing
number of citizens who take a real interest
in growth management have sat in silence
as the bureaucratic process was explained.


"Historically, people don't have a lot of
input until they're mad," Zoning Board
Member Bo Raulerson observed. That bor-
ders on understatement.
As long as the public is happy Which
generally equates to seeing no threat to'
their own interests few people bother to
goi to meetings of government agencies to
express their satisfaction.
It is when a threat perceived or actual
to their happiness or well-being sur-
faces that they step forward.
Bartow is on the threshold of a growth
spurt not seen since its early years of exis-
tence more than 100 years ago.
The question is not if that growth will
take place; the question is how that growth
will take place.
Public concern over the preponderance
of code-minimum developments now in
the works is driving the dialogue between
elected city commissioners and the
Appointed zoning board, whose members
are the city's first line of defense' in zoning
and development decisions.
SWe're glad to see that the: time for sub-
,stantive exchange appears to be at hand,
and.that the public w ill be invited to take

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

A Growing Family


Substantive Discussions


Poised To Begin at Last


A il


Townsend', and his long-time
intended, Brooke Abbott. They
are two of the finest young peo-.
ple you could ever hope to know.
.It started out to be "a small!
wedding." You've heard that
term before, right?
Seated in folding chairs on the
lawn of a century-old hotel in
Mount Dora for a lakefront wed-
ding, we numbered 61. With the
exception of the judge who offici-
ated and the best man and the'
maid of honor, we think we ivere
all family on one side of the aisle
or the other.
At the luncheon which fol-
lowed, we counted 22 members
of the Greater Grossenbacher
Family, more properly described
as the Greater Grossenbacher-,
Frisbie-Townsend-Holton-Bell-
Knudsen Family. When we get
together for Thanksgiving, the
turkey population in Central
Florida takes a hit.
And if there were 22 on our
-side of the equation, you had to
add 30-some-odd of Brooke's
family for the Greater
G r osse nb a c he r -F r i sb i e -
Townsend-Holton-Bell-Knudsen-
Abbott Family.
There were four generations


represented: Brooke's grand-
mother; a whole bunch of Mary's
and my generation gathered from.
AApopka to Los Angeles; our kids'
generation; one of whom (a
niece-in-law from L.A.) had
never met the others; and a grow-
'ing number- of delightful cookie
crushers, curtain climbers, and
toddlers, the oldest of whom is 6.
This wedding was a two-day
affair. After the "small family
wedding" on Friday, we gathered
at a regional park in St. Cloud on
Saturday. for a five-hour picnic
and hoe-down. This was the
event to which Darren and
Brooke invited their friends who
are outside of the immediate fam-
ilY qcicle.
There were a bunch of people
there.
It was a great event, even if
they did sing "We Are the Boys
from Old Florida." The largely
Gator-oriented contingent
responded with gusto.
Someone even thanked me for
standing during the singing of
the University of Florida
National Anthem.
I simply smiled gracefully, not
Admitting that I was simply look-
ing for the bar.

Good Memories Fading into History


LAKE CITY.- While. not a
native of Bartow, during my
early years we lived in
Mulberry and made weekly
pilgrimages to the old Kwik
Chek on East Main Streetf for
grocieries. These were" the
days prior to completion of
the overpass or Van Fleet
Drive. -
I was saddened to read ifi
the online Polk .'County
Democrat of the closing of the
Winn-Dixie in Bartow.i It
seems as if another part of the
city I loved so much as a
young boy has been taken
away.
When I was 9, my family
moved to Barfow, living first
off Floral Avenue behind the
IMC offices. Our days were.


filled .with fishing in the old
phosphate pits off Floral
Avenue and I attended Floral
Avenue Elementary.
SWhen I read of the burning
of sections of downtown
Bartow it is as if pages are
being turned and forgotten
forever of a Bartow that used
to be.
SI thought this morning of
Saturday afternoons spent at
'the Ritz Theatre while my
'mother worked around the
corner in the old Penisular
Telephone office.
When I read this week of
the passing of Monroe
Brannen, it seemed as if anoth-
er page from so long ago was
turned. I can remember when
we lived in Mulberry and Mr.


Brannen was constable
came by and drank coffee
my dad.
My brother passed a'
this past July 15th. He gra
ated from Bartow High
1965. All that seems so 1
ago, but the memories ar
real as life moves' along.
Bartow of yesterday,
will miss you terribly. With
closing of Winn-Dixie, ano
page is turned, but with
turning of an old page, a
page of history is reveal
filled with hope and exp(
tion.
Bartow of today, write g
memories, as we who 1
been blessed to be part of
past did years ago.

Lenten Reflections


we BARTOW As the Easter sea-
Sthe son draws near, bringing remem-
)ther brance of the ministry,
the Crucifixion, and Resurrection of
new our Lord Jesus Christ, let us not'
aled, forget the importance of the
ecta- Messenger God chose to prepare
the way for His coming.
;ood It was a time when Israel was
have at a crossroads as Greek and
your Roman influence wreaked havoc
on the nation's cultural existence.
The Jewish nation is torn apart
with outgrowths of pagan influ-
ences, horse racing tracks, stadi-
ums hosting chariot races, Greek
and Roman gods everywhere,
and overall lax moral behavior
plague the Holy Land as foreign
occupiers spread their power,
ethics, and religions. The Jewish
religion, seeking to maintain its
unique character amid heathen
influences, splinters into conflict-
ing and warring factions with the
Pharisees, Sadducees and
Essenes who each claim to be
keepers of God's truth, while
common Israelites seek a genuine
way to worship God.
.God gaw their need for the
S promised Messiah, but the way
had to be prepared, and it
required a special person,
because Israel wanted and
33 expected the Messiah to be a
S fierce warrior who would use
/ brute force to overthrow the hea-
then governments that ruled
them. Israel wanted a physical
salvation, not a spiritual one.
God's plan, however, was to
cleanse His people of the sin that
infests their inner souls. Before


dealing with the nation as a
whole, God will deal with and
purify His people from the. inside
out. His messenger will not be
preparing the way for a physical,
conqueror, but for a spiritual one
who will do battle with powers of
sin and death. This messenger
will be the first to proclaim the
coming of one who will "give
light to them that sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death, to'
guide our feet into the way of
peace." (Luke 1:79). The coming
King of the Jews will be a King of
love, light, redemption, mercy
and peace, not a warrior. Malachi
3:1 says, "Behold, I will send my
messenger, and he shall prepare
the way for me." The messenger
will be a man sent from God, and
his assignment is unlike anything
ever given to any other man for
the messenger John will be grant-
ed the task of preparing the way
for the coming Messiah.
When the time is right, God
moves in the heart of John. "The
word of God came unto John, the
soi of Zacharias, in the wilder-
ness, and he came into -all the
country about Jordan, preaching
the baptism of repentance for the
remission of sins." (Luke 3:2-3) So
powerful is John's preaching that


many. wondered whether or not
he himself is the Messiah. John
quickly squashed such erroneous
thoughts with the words, "I
indeed baptize you with water,
but one mightier than I comes,
the laces of whose shoes I am not
worthy to unloosen." Luke 3:16.
John does not seek glory, but
only to prepare the way of the
One who is to come after, the One
who is worthy of all glory. John is
a faithful and God-loving mes-
senger and he effectively pre-
pares the way. John was called to
a very special divine assignment.
So are all of us who are adopted
by God through the shed blood of
our Lord Jesus Christ, and God
has a plan for each and every one
of His children. Our divine
assignment is to share the Gospel,
and we can do this in various
ways.
If we learn anything from the
story of John, God's messenger
for the coming of our Lord, we
will know that our obedience to
our divine assignment will bring
joy to ourselves, others,.and most
of all, to the very Savior whose
glory we have been called to pro-
claim.

DANNY MOODY Iright pays a love tribute to provided
Dad and Momr Dan and Ruby Moody. (Photo.


By LETA WRIGHT


I really haxe a hist:.r:ical
event to tell you about this week.
I attended the 50th wedding
anniversary party of two very
prominent people of Fort Meade
- Dan and Ruby Moody, at their
son's home on Eagle Lake last
Saturday afternoon.
Dan and Ruby started dating
during their junior year at Fort
Meade High School and were
married Feb. 19, 1956 in the.
Methodist Church, which they
still attend.
Besides the business of Moody
Funeral Home for 30 years, they
have had a number of working
connections in offices and have
held political positions in the
county and have been very civic-
minded in activities. Through
the years, Dan and Ruby have
made hundreds of friends who
attended'the party to give their
best wishes and congratulations.
The home of Dan and Nancy
Moody is a masterpiece of beauty
with the green sprawling lawn
tapering down to Eagle Lake.
The rooms were beautifully ap-
pointed in flowers and candles.
Two large tents were placed at
each end of the swimming pool
area flanked with chairs and ta-
bles for comfort.
The serving 'tables were
adorned with delicacy food suit-
able for a wedding anniversary..
The wedding cake stood four
tiers high and' as placed on a
table strategically between the
front door entry and the patio.
Ruby wore a gold ensemble
dress and Dan was in a black
tuxedo.
' The highlight of the party was
the tribute of love given to them
by Danny Moody, their son. He
quoted scriptures from the Bible
concerning how God made man
and woman to be joined together
in marriage and how his mother
and dad had not only contrib-
uted their love to him, but the
caring of others as well.
Vince Frotheroe, husband of
Faye, Dan's sister, told how
great it is to be a member of the
large, close-knit family. Roy
Bass, Dan's brother, spoke of the
outings he and Dan shared
throughout their lives and how
they enjoyed being together and
the warm love he has for Ruby.
Others speaking were Mallory
Moody, granddaughter, who read
a poem written by Vince;.Drew
Moody, grandson, with words of
love for his grandparents; Nancy
Moody, Danny's wife, thanking
everyone for coming to share
these moments; Ruby, also
thanking everyone for coming
and also introducing Nancy's


parents and family, the Carle's
of Sai-asotaiand Doug Harrell,
minister and husband of Lor-
raine, who is Dan's sister, took
charge of exchanging vows and
rings.
The finale speech was given
by Dan, who was humble in:
thanking his family and friends
for b.,ing there to help celebrate
\ith them and wanted to ex-
press his appreciation for all the
good things that have been done
for them through the years.
Ruby's sisters attending were
.Ollietta Mashburn, Tampa; Te-
ola Hollingsworth. Lakeland;
Carol-n Swartz. Lakeland; and
Glenda. Mullins, Fort -Meade.
Her two brothers Were Charles


Gillispie, Interlachen; and Bill
Gillispie, Titusville.
Dan's family attending were
Roy Bass, brother,: Pensacola;
sisters Faye Protheroe, Eagle
Lake; Lorraine Harrell, St. Pe-
tersburg; and Norma Aggelis,
Fort Meade.
SIt's so wonderfully for families
to get together and this was one
happy occasion with friends join-
ing in. We. wish for Dan and
Ruby many more years of happy
times and we thank them for in-
cluding us to help celebrate their
50th wedding anniversary.
This historical event write-up
will be placed in the family his-
tory files in the Museum.

Florida Storm Victims

Began Self-Help Before

FEMA Aid Arrived


Floridians hit by Hurricane
Wilma were quicker to begin
helping themselves to recover,
while victims of Hurricane Ka-
trina were more inclined to wait
for help from the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency, ac-
cording to Kurt Moore, an inde-
pendent insurance adjuster who
responded to both storms.
"I cannot tell you the pain
they felt; you could see it in their
faces," he said of hurricane vic-
tims.
Speaking to the Bartow Ro-
tary Club, he said that Katrina
came ashore as a Category 2
hurricane, but spread a path of
death and destruction that
stretched to 150 miles from the
Gulf Coast.
Mobile homes were torn
apart, becoming nothing more
than unrecognizable rubble in
open fields, Moore said.
The few gas stations that
were open in the 100 miles be-
tween Mobile, Ala., and Hatties-
burg, Miss., had long lines, he
said. He later learned that panic
buying was prompted by a rumor
that FEMA would take over the
stations.
"Hotels were gouging; every-
body was gouging," he said of the
prices he encountered in Missis-
sippi.
Street signs were blown away,
making it difficult even to locate
the insured households he was
there to process, Moore said.


Moore said there were 1,418
confirmed deaths from Katrina,
and some 3,2,0 people still ha-
ven't been accounted for.
The storm produced the larg-
est power outage in the nation's
history, he said.
"You sit down on the curb
with these people and youcry
with them and you feel for
them."
His next assignment was to
the South Florida area hit by
Wilma.
While forecasters said the
storm had only the force of a
Category 2 hurricane, Moore
said he saw steel buildings de-
stroved that were warranted to
stand up to a Category 5 storm.
The town of Pahokee 'didn't
get power restored until two or
three weeks ago, he said, and
about 1,000 storm victims were
living at the fairgrounds.
Moore's advice to people with
hurricane losses: create "a gro-
cery list" to document losses. Ad-
justers are skilled at estimating
home repair costs, but residents
need to record losses of personal
property, he said:
When a home is totally de-
stroyed, insurance companies
pay the face value of the policy
without attempting to' estimate
replacement cost, he said.

Polar Bears May Metabolize At A

Higher Rate Than Other Mammals


Polar bears and people, at the
chilly top of the Arctic's food
chain, risk consuming a smor-
gasbord of industrial pollutants
that have seeped into their habi-
tat and pose potential health
hazards.
Now a University of Florida
researcher, aiming to better un-
derstand just how dangerous the
chemicals might be to humans,
has zeroed in on how effectively
polar bears are able to rid them-
selves of environmental toxins
consumed in the food they eat.-
It turns out the bears can
completely eliminate only one of
five of the classes of industrial
contaminants they.are exposed
to, a finding that's bad news for
the bears and other species who
share their environment, accord-
ing to Dr..Margaret James, an
environmental toxicologist at
UF.
"The polar bear has quite an
efficient system for metabolizing
these pollutants," said James,
adding, "If they can't do it, then
it's unlikely that other animals
or persons can."
The UF study, published this
month in-the journal Drug Me-
tabolism and Disposition, could
help researchers learn more
about the effects of pollutants on
humans living in the Arctic who
share the same staple diet as the
bears. ,
James, chairwoman of the de-
partment of medicinal chemistry
at UF's College of Pharmacy, be-
came interested in studying pol-
lutants nearly 30 years ago.
That was when researchers
first began to understand that
industrial byproducts were car-
ried to the Arctic by trade winds
and then settled in the subzero
temperatures, incapable of re-en-
tering the atmosphere and mak-
ing them more likely to accumu-
late in the food chain.
Then in the 1980s and '90s,
Canadian and Scandinavian sci-
entists showed that the bodies of
polar bears contained high levels
of industrial pollutants. Learn-
ing more about the extent to
which the bears could break
down and eliminate the chemi-
cals dovetailed with James' ex-
pertise in how the body metabo-
lizes drugs.
"There is no difference to the


body in metabolizing a drug or a
pollutant," she said. "The process
is the same."
In her research, James con-
centrated on five types of chemi-
cal contaminants known by the
acronym POP, for' persistent or-.
ganic pollutants. They include
compounds produced by a burn-
ing process; a compound used as
a substitute for the pesticide
DDT when it was banned, and
which itself was subsequently
banned in 2004; TCPM, an in-
dustrial compound found in the.
Arctic but of unknown origin and
toxicity; PCP, used as a wood
preservative; and PCBs, indus-
trial chemicals used for many
years in electrical applications.:
All of these substances, with
the exception of TCPM, are regu-
lated or banned, but they persist
in the environment.
Polar bears break down these
fat-soluble chemicals in two
steps, each of which makes the
substances more water-soluble
and therefore easier to excrete,
said James.
The first step, however, re-
sults in a compound that's more
chemically reactive and there-
fore more harmful to living cells,
with the potential for reproduc-
tive or neurological damage. .
The second phase, ,often
slower than the first, determines
how successfully the animals
eliminate the toxins, she said.
Studying liver tissue samples
obtained from the bears, James
found that the animals were sur-
prisingly efficient at metaboliz-
ing one of the types of industrial
chemicals studied those pro-
duced by a burning process,
which are similar to the com-
pounds that form when meat is
cooked on a grill. The other pol-
lutants, she determined, could
not be fully excreted.
"This suggests that other spe-
cies will metabolize the pollut-
ants more slowly," said James.:
"When they are not sufficiently
Secreted the levels go up."
One obstacle James faced in
her research quest: how a Flor-
ida researcher might obtain a po-
lar bear for scientific study. Her
break came in 2003. when Cana-
dian colleagues .Dr. Stelvio
Bandiera professor of biomolecu -
lar and pharmaceutical chemis-


try at the University of British
Columbia in Vancouver, and Dr.
Robert Letcher, at Environment'
Canada in Ottawa, donated liver
tissue samples from three, adult'
male bears to UF.
The bears were from a legally.
controlled hunt in 1993 by the
Inuit people native to the Cana-
dian Arctic.
Bandiera began his research
in Canada 15 years ,ago looking
,at the effects of pollutants on
great blue herons, seals and
other animals living in marine
environments.
His research then shifted to
arctic mammals about 10 years
ago, when he.first examined-
liver tissue, from polar bears.
His studies to date focused
only on the first phase of the:
metabolic process.
"We believe that the polar
bear is one of few species able to
metabolize these pollutants. We
think it is likely that humans
also may have this ability, but
this is not yet known." Bandiera
said.
He added that because polar'
bears are mammals with a diet
similar to the native Inuit, they
may serve as good surrogates for
studying human populations
also exposed to the pollutants.
In 2001. the world population
of polar bears was estimated to
be between 21.500 and 25.000. of
which some 15.000 were in Can-
ada.
James said experts have ob-
served a worldwide decline in
their population, which some
blame on environmental pollu-
tion.
James said her immediate re-
search goal is to help scientists
gain a better understanding of
exactly how these compounds
are eliminated from 'the body.
People throughout the world con-
tinue to be exposed to chemical
pollutants long after they are
created and released int' the at-'
mosphere.
Her long-range goal is to pro-
vide governments and regulatory
agencies with scientific findings
regarding the safety or potential
risks of the environmental
chemical pollutants that will
guide. future decisions About the
."use and thel .ihsp.qal .f these
compounds. ""

BHS Cheerleaders First In State, Sixth In Nation


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer

Bartow High School cheer-
leaders have finished their 'com-
petitive season as first in the'
state and'sixth in the nation.

the national championship in
Galveston, Texas, by winning
the Cheer Power competition at
the Lakeland Civic Center in No-
vember.
The state tournament was in
Jacksonville, and featured more
than 250 squads. At the end of
Saturday, it was anyone's game
as the BHS cheerleaders were
ahead by only five-tenths of a
point, On Sunday, however, the
girls clinched their victory to
take.home the trophy.
Besides coming in sixth in the
national competition, the BHS
cheerleaders won many regional


competitions, including one at
the state fair.
To honor their success, the
Booster Club purchased, state
rings for the girls.

ers were: captains Maderica
Stewart, Briana Leverett, Whit-
ney Collier. Chelsea White; sen-
iors Lori Ann Wilson, Lisa
Mohler, Nicole Joiner, Ashley

nah Rhodes, Kaylee Wheeler,

day, and Thursday. Current high
school students will meet from


2:30 to 4:30 p.m., and incoming
freshmen will meet from 4:30 to
6:30.
Attending conditioning i not
required, but is highly recom-
mended as it gives more expo-
sure time ;\ith the coaches.
The mandatory tryouts are
the second week o:f April on Mon-
day, Tuesday, and Wednesday,
at the same times. Teams will be
announced Thursday night.
Varsity cheerleading hopefuls

dance, and a cheer.

Jackets Blank Bolts, 8-0 Next Home


By DENNIS CLARK

On Friday evening at Bill
Phebus Field the Bartow base-
ball team won their first 2006
district game over Ridge Com-
munity, 8-0.
The Ridge Bolts were held in
check by Jackets' pitcher Bran-
don Patterson on two hits, a
walk, and eight strike-outs.
Ridge pitcher Josh Ringdahl
walked six Jacket batters along
with a hit by pitch, three wild
pitches, and four fielding errors
to make Head Coach Ryan
Abrams reach into. his' bull pen
for relief in the fifth inning with
Darius Maze. But Maze didn't
fare well either, allowing two
more walks and a two-run
homer.
.The Jackets started their win-
ning ways in the first inning
with a one-out single off the bat
of Josh Ward. While Ward was
stealing second base, Bolts'
catcher Logan Adams threw his
pickoff attempt into center field,
moving Ward.to third base.
Joey .Manning walked and
stole second base and Adams'
throw to second base was cut off
by infielder Daniel Torres, who
threw to home to pick off Ward


but overthrew the catcher. Ward
scored and Manning reached
third base.
i Jack Murphy hit a deep sacri-
fice fly out to center field, scoring
Manning and putting the Jack-
ets up 2-0.
Bartow scored three times on
four walks, a Bolts error, and a
hit batter in the third inning.
Brent Delph socked a triple to
lead off the fourth inning and
scored on a Manning ground out.
In the sixth with Delph on
base, Manning hit a two-run
homer over the center field fence
to put Bartow up 8-0.
Ridge came close to scoring in
the top of the sixth with Adams
on base. Jake Lange hit a double
off the left field fence, but great
fielding by Kelly Green and his
relay toss to Jim LaTorre, who in
return tossed a strike to catcher
Murphy, nailed Adams at home
plate.
The 5-2 Jackets have two dis-
trict contests this week, both at
Phebus Field. They will play
Haines City on Tuesday and
long-time rival Lake Wales on
Friday. Both games start at 7:30
p.m. and can be heard on 1130

las, Pasco and Hernando coui-
ties can donate new or nearly
new children's books or volun-
teer for this childhood literacy
program.
Goodwill's BookWorks pro-
gram brings together volunteer
readers and children from low-
income households to promote
childhood literacy. Volunteers
read to groups of children ages 2
to 5 at Head Start centers and
other locations. After the story
time, each child is given a per-
sonalized book to take home, a
feature that differentiates Book-
Works from other reading pro-
grams.
The BookWorks program is


designed to instill a love of books
and reading in children from
low-income households to pre-
pare them to succeed in tomor-
row's workforce. Because early
childhood literacy is linked to
later employability, BookWorks
supports Goodwill-Suncoast's
mission of helping people
achieve their full potential
through the dignity and power of
work.
To donate books, attach a note
indicating they are for the Book-
Works program and drop them
off at any Goodwill store or dona-
tion site.
For store and donation site lo-
cations, call toll free at 888-279-
1988, or visit www.goodwill-sun-
coast.org.
S To volunteer as a BookWorks
leader call Goodwill's commu-
4ity relations at 888-279-1988,
ext. 1013.
