Two longtime employees of the
Polk County Clerk of Courts in
Bartow were seriously injured
early yesterday when they were
hit by a car while crossing Main
Street on their way to work.
Mary Lou Olson, 73, and
Melinda Meeks Fink, 56, both of
Bartow, received head injuries
when they were struck by a 2002
Pontiac, driven by 42-year-old
Jacqueline I. Long, at around
6:42 in the morning, according to
SBartow Police Traffic Investigator
Bryan S. Dorman.
Fink also suffered a broken
knee and ribs, a collapsed right

lung, and lacerations, Dorman
said. Both were taken to
Lakeland Regional Medical
Center, where they were listed in
stable condition.
Dorman said there were no
traffic violations, as the high
glare from the sun made it impos-
sible for Long to see the two
women, and for the women to see
her car as they crossed the street.
Both Olson and Fink have
been employed at the clerk's
office for more than 30 years.
Neither Long nor her passen-
ger, 17-year-old Lindsey Long,
were injured, Dorman said.


Main Street Market

BARTOW FIREFIGHTERS were called to help put out a brush
fire Monday afternoon on Highway 17 North, across from the Bartow
Air Base. Units from Polk Countjr and Winter Haven also were on


scene fighting the blaze, which came "very close" to catching Sunbelt
Manufacturing's lumber yard on fire, Deputy Chief Bobby Pitman
said. The cause of the fire is unknown. (Photo by Pitman)


Downtown will fill with flow-
ers, fruit, vegetables and plants
as the first Bartow Farmers'
Market continues this Saturday,
March 25.
The weekly market is 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.

Growth, Taxes Hot Issues


For County Candidates


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer


Growth and growing taxes
were of much interest to the
Tiger Bay Club members, who
conducted a debate between the
three Republican candidates for
seat two on the county commis-
sion Monday.
Dave Hallock, Betty Hill and
Randy Wilkinson did their best
to impress the Tigers with their
answers.
Regarding the recent property
tax increase, Wilkinson said that
he would still vote no. Hill said
, that she would vote yes, because
that money is needed to provide
the services in the county.
Hallock said that it was a dif-
ficult question, and that he did
not think it could easily be
answered yes or no. He said that
he would have voted to increase
taxes if he believed they. were
necessary, but that right now he
did not know all of the particu-
lars of the budget. It is doubly
important to be careful when you
are managing other people's
money, he said.
Hallock also said that it was
important that taxes be fair. He
had recently argued against a
plan to reduce taxes for libraries
in unincorporated areas because
people from unincorporated


areas use the libraries just as
much as those in the city. "Unfair
taxes are worse than high taxes,"
he said.
Hill asked Wilkinson why he
voted to provide all of the social
programs and services if he was
not willing to vote for the taxes
to pay for them. She wondered
where the nion'ey was supposed
to come from.
Wilkinson said that he would
prefer to cut costs in programs,
and that he preferred to use
impact fees to raise the money, so
he voted no to the property tax
increase. Hallock said that
Wilkinson votes against all tax
increases, regardless.


Growth Management
All .three did agree on one
thing growth management is
the most important issue facing
the county, they said. Hallock
wants to retain the flavor of Polk
County with its natural, rural
feel while, updating to a modern
infrastructure.
Wilkinson said that growth
was important, and that is why
he wants impact fees to help pay
for managing that growth.
Hill referenced the Polk
Vision study on what needs to be
done to manage growth in Polk
County, and said that the com-


mission should be trying to fol-
low it.


Supporting Schools
Wilkinson said that he served
on school board for three years,
but left because he wanted "to
work to help them froi the top
rather thanitrying to push them
up from the bottom." He is
pleased with the school camps
that are held in the summer to
help struggling students. He also
thinks that the opening of school
fields to the public was a great
way. to bring the schools and
communities together.
Hallock said that he has had
more than 30 years of education
issue experience, and currently
serves the early learning pro-
gram. He believed there needs to
be continued dialogue between
the county commission and the
school board, saying that the
school system cares about the
children.
Increasing pay for teachers is
the most important thing to be
done for the school system, Hill
said. Teachers are leaving the
area, or getting jobs in other
fields, because the pay is not
competitive enough. It is also
important to just let teachers do
their job, she said.


Automated Garbage Truck


Goes Into Use On Monday


Beginning next week, most
Bartow homes will be serviced by
two new garbage trucks which
allow a single sanitation worker
to collect garbage and trash with-
out leaving the cab of his truck.
At present, garbage trucks
have three-man crews.
For the past several weeks,
roll-out containers have been
delivered to about two-thirds of
the homes in Bartow in prepara-
tion for the new system, which
eliminates the need for sanita-
tion workers to pick up bagged
garbage and trash or empty con-
tainers by hand.
Solid Waste Dir. Daryl
Stewart told the city commission
that the new garbage trucks have
been delivered and will be put
into service on Monday.
Only about two-thirds of
Bartow homes have received the
new roll-out carts because the
vendor has not yet delivered the
remainder of the containers, he


said.
Written instructions are fur-
nished with the new carts; An
arrow on the top of the carts
must be pointed toward the
street in order for the 'truck to
empty them.
Carts should be placed at least
six feet away from trees, mail
boxes, utility poles, parked vehi-
cles, or other items.
Stewart's report came in
response to a complaint from
Gerald Cochran, who said the 90-
gallon containers "are not quite
big enough for household
garbage."
Stewart said the 90-gallon
carts are the largest of three
sizes offered by the city, and
should be sufficient for a family
of four, given that garbage is col-
lected twice a week.
Residents can request a sec-
ond cart if needed, he said, but
Stewart suggested that a better
solution is for households to recy-


cle paper, containers,. and card-
board.
The charge for a second cart is
$2 a month.
On rare occasions when resi-
dents have too much garbage to
fit into a container, additional
bags may be left next to the cart,
Stewart said.
He said few people have com-
plained about the containers
being too small, and that most
calls have been requests for
smaller containers.
The city offers 60-gallon con-
tainers, which should be large
enough for a family of two, and
40-gallon carts, big enough for
homes with only one occupant, he
said.
As with the city's present sys-
tem, both garbage ard yard trash
must be placed in bags. The bags
go into the carts: Monday,
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
for household garbage,
Wednesday for yard trash.


Spying Poll Results Say It's Okay


To fight terrorism, should domestic spying be
allowed without a warrant?
Website readers of The Polk County Democrat,
The Fort Meade Leader, and The Lake Wales News
say yes.
Those voting (91) at the Bartow newspaper site
were clearly okay with the prospect, with 51 saying
yes, 38 no and only two undecided. Thirty-three
voted on the Fort Meade web site, with 20 saying


yes, 12 no, and one undecided.
In Lake Wales, the results were much closer,
with 35 voting yes, 31 no, and four undecided.
Totals for the three sites: 106 yes, 81 no, and
seven undecided.

Developers, Neighbors Seek Common Ground


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

In'the first informal meeting of
developers and neighbors held
since city commissioners urged
developers to try to iron out
neighborhood concerns before
submitting their plans for city
approval, builders planning two
housing developments on E.F.
S Griffin Road engaged in a harmo-
nious exchange with neighbors
for an hour and a half Tuesday
night.
Rick Strawbridge, who is plan-
ning a 15-acre, 37-home upscale
development, and George
Lindsey, vice president/develop-
ment of Highland Homes and
Highland Cassidy LLC, who is
planning an 839-unit, 272-acre
development, outlined their
plans.
While both made it clear that
they won't do anything to jeopar-
dize the financial success of their
respective ventures, they were
willing to consider ideas from the
audience of about 30 people, most
of whom live on E.F. Griffin Road
and/or are members of Our Town
Bartow.
Neighbors urged Strawbridge
to narrow the building lots in his
subdivision from 90 feet to 80,
and to develop a landscaped area


of green space fronting on the
highway.
They urged Lindsey to drop
plans for a four-acre commercial
development in his subdivision.
Both builders said they would
consider the requests.

Rising Prices Lamented
Both lamented the skyrocket-
ing prices of single family homes,
and said the prices are crowding
many young families out of the
market. Nonetheless, they said,
there is a market for their homes.
Strawbridge is planning homes
that will sell for about $350,000.
"I'll be honest with you," he
said. "I don't see how your kids
and my kids can afford to buy a
home."
He said his development would
have a density of slightly less
than two-and-a-half homes per
acre, on lots that are 90 feet wide
by 130 feet deep.
He said that Disney's
Celebration community has hous-
es on 45-foot-wide lots, with lots
of green space in the community.
"The first time I built on 70-
foot lots, I was stunned by the
beauty of the neighborhood," he
said.
Smaller lots are usually better
maintained than large lots, he
said. Parents with children are


too busy taking their children to
soccer games and dance lessons to
spend a lot of time working it the
yard, he added.

No Septic Tanks
Septic tanks and sanitary
sewer lines cost about the same
thing, Strawbridge said, and he
offered to the city to develop larg-
er lots if the city would allow sep-
'tic tanks. The city refused the
offer, he said, because if sewer
lines are available, developers are
required to tie into them.
Terry Frost, who lives on E.F.
Griffin Road, said she believed
more green space to be more
important than. 90-foot lots.
"Most of us feel like we live in
a rural area; we don't want it to
turn into (County Road) 540-A,"
she said.
Strawbridge agreed with the
concept of reducing lot size and
increasing green space, saying,
"The issue isn't size, it's scale."
He said he was committed to
limiting the development to 27
homes and would be willing to
trade narrower lots for more
green space.
Homes used to occupy only
one-seventh to one-tenth of a
building lot, he said; today, homes
typically occupy one-fourth of the
lot.


"I don't want ugly,"
Strawbridge said; "I want green
space consolidated."

839 Units
Lindsey's company already is
building 330 homes on 100 acres,
and is planning Wind Meadows
South, a development of 839 units
on 272 acres, stretching from E.F.
Griffin Road to Yarborough Road.
Crews Lake Road will serve the
western side of the development.


Plans call for 716 single family
residences and 123 townhouse-
style "attached homes" in units of
four to eight residences each.
Some of these will be sold, and
others will be owned by the
builder and rented, Lindsey said.
The single family homes, all
built on 70-foot wide lots, would
be priced at $180,000 in today's
market, but probably will sell for
$200,000 by the time they are
built, he said. The town houses


will cost less. Construction is
scheduled to begin this summer.

'Tapped the Brakes'
"I've tapped the brakes" on the
project to give the public time to
react, he said, promising to take
into consideration comments
made at the meeting. He said he
will hold a second informal public
meeting before submitting plans

be a "blended community" of first
time buyers and older house-
holds moving into smaller hous-
es.
Lindsey said the high density
development on County Road
540-A,'."has: met a market
demand."
He assured E.F. Griffin Road
residents who live on multi-acre
parcels of land that "your proper-
ty values will continue to rise."


Shopping Center Opposed
It was Lindsey's proposal to
put a four-acre commercial devel--
opment in the southeast corner of
his development that drew the
strongest reaction.
"That makes me want to cry,",
Mrs. Frost said, "For me, that's a
tragedy.".
Lindsey said that the "neigh-
borhood shopping center" would
not have a gasoline station, but
that it might have a veterinary
clinic, a dentist's office, and a
deli. It would reduce traffic'going
into town on E.F. Griffin Road,
and would be accessible to neigh-
borhood children on bicycles, he
said.
One member of the audience
questioned that a child on a bicy-
cle would take a pet to a veteri-
narian. Several other neighbors
spoke against the commercial
development.
Lindsey said he would consid-
er neighborhood opposition to the
shopping center.
Wind Meadows South will cre-
ate a "community development
district" to provide a funding
source for maintenance of public


spaces, including a boulevard
road, several small parks, and a
jogging trail beneath high volt-
age power lines on the south side
of the development,,he said.

High Impact Fees
Polk County has the highest
impact fees for new schools in the
state, he said, and a half-cent
local option sales tax for school
construction is bringing in 15
percent more revenue than had
been anticipated.
The problem with school
capacity, he said, is that state
regulations allow schools to be
built only for existing student
populations, not for projected
enrollments, he said.
.As a result schools often add
portable classrooms the day they
open.
Lindsey said that housing
sales are losing momentum, a
reflection of higher prices, higher:
land values, rising mortgage
interest rates, and impact fees.
He said that prices on homes
built by his company have risen
by $60,000 to $65,000 on the past
18 months.


Clean-Up Week
Ends March 24
Spring Clean-Up Week in
Bartow will be held March 20-
24.
In an effort to encourage
spring cleaning, the city will
waive the customary pick-up fee

for old furniture, washing ma-
chines, refrigerators, appliances,
mattresses, and yard waste. Ve-
hicle tires and building debris
will not be exempt. Industrial
and commercial customers are
not eligible for the fee waiver.
The city urges citizens to take
advantage of the designated
clean-up period by trimming,
pruning and taking yard trash
out to the,curb or edge of the
roadway where it can be easily
picked up by the Solid Waste De-
partment.
It is still necessary to sepa-
rate garbage from yard trash.
Garbage is described. as all
kitchen refuse, animal and vege-
table matter, small household
items, cans, paper goods, boxes,
liquid containers, water hoses
and. small appliances. Garbage
should only be put out on gar-
bage pick-up days and placed in
plastic bags or garbage contain-
ers.
Yard trash is all accumula-
tions of grass clippings or leaves,
which must be placed in plastic
bags. It also includes vines,
shrubbery, tree limbs, tree top-
pings and similar material. Yard
trash must be placed on the curb
or city right-of-way in front of
the residence and not on a va-
cant lot or parkway.,
Trash should not cover or hide
a fire hydrant or black access to
a utility pole.
Other trash that must be
separated tires, building materi-
als, roofing, large tree limbs and
tree trunks in excess of 6" in di-
ameter. These items are classi-
fied as special pick-up items and
are subject to charges in addition
to the monthly garbagefees.

4A The Polk County Democrat March 23, 2006


Kind-hearted Polk Countians --in a
tax-averse county voted to impose on
themselves a half-cent sales tax for indi-
gent health care.
That tax essentially took the place of
Polk General Hospital, which for decades
had cared for people who could not pay
for their own health care. In today's econ-
omy, that term equates to people who
don't have health insurance.
We supported that referendum, and we
commend the people of Polk County who
voted with their pocketbooks, who said
that health care should not be limited to
those who can pay the going rate.
A citizens oversight committee was
appointed to insure that the money was
.pent according to citizens' wishes; it was
i wise move by the county commission.
The most recent proposal to come
before the committee would raise the eli-
gibility limit from 150 percent to twice the
"federal poverty guidelines." That would
make the county's health care plan avail-
able to single persons making $19,600 a
year, and to a four-person family making
$40,000.
Those numbers are hardly "poverty,"
though it could be persuasively argued
that it's hard to get along on half that
much money, which is the defined
"poverty level."
We support the increase in the eligibili-
ty guidelines for Polk County's health
care program.
Polk finds itself in the unusual situa-
tion of having more money than it needs
for a benefit for its citizens who earn less
than the federal poverty guidelines.
One option that has been put forth is to
use the indigent health care tax to pay for
care for jail inmates. That idea appears to
be going nowhere, and we're glad. Yes,


one way or another, taxpayers will pay for
health care for inmates, but that was not
the purpose for which voters approved
the indigent health care tax.
The "federal poverty guideline" is a
largely political number. It is used in
political campaigns to suggest who are
the good guys and who are the bad guys.
We put little stock in it. With gasoline
prices bouncing up and down by 25 cents
per gallon per week, half a buck or more a
month, it's hard to tie down a "poverty"
level.
But health care should not be tied to a
political number.
Sick people should get medical care.
It's not a matter of the cost savings of
caring for people with minor ailments
before they become major ailments; it's a
matter of the right thing to do.
Polk County voters didn't split hairs
when they voted to tax themselves a half-
cent on the dollar for indigent health care.
They wanted sick people to be made well,
and healthy people to be kept healthy.
The oversight committee has said how
that objective should be pursued.
We support their recommendation to
expand the eligibility guidelines.

Saga of the Desperate Bureaucrat

energy and soul out of him. He
believes that he could offer the
world a lot more.
"He dreams of helping people
in some way and making a differ-
ence in their lives. Instead, he
feels like an old curmudgeon
frustrated by having to deal with
paper being passed around at a
snail's pace, day in and day out.
"Raising $1,000,000 at his web-
site is the only way that he can
justify quitting his job and have
enough spare time and energy to
do something that makes a differ-
ence in his life and the lives of
others."
Clearly this man needs our
help. Our generous help.
I can just feel the tug at your
heartstrings.
The desperate bureaucrat, as
he is described in the headline
thoughtfully furnished with the
"press release," will accept pay-
ments by check or credit card.
He will entertain inquiries in


his "Ask the Bureaucrat" column.
For those of you who just can-
not stand the thought of not
knowing who this noble soul is,
"For every $10,000 in donations
he will reveal part of his identi-
ty."
I think that's a little like the
Internet version of strip poker.
Or perhaps it's more like
Wheel of Fortune, the TV game
show where you can buy an occa-
sional vowel and figure out a
catchy phrase.
After revealing 100 tips about
his identity and 10 grand a pop,
he'll tell us all who he is.
Tell us who he is, eh?
I think he's the ex-con who
wrote a book telling other ex-cons
how to make an honest living
scamming casinos.
After all, how many of these
guys can there be?
Outside of crooked Nigerian
bankers, that is.

OUR READERS SAY

Use Time Wisely


History From Our Files
Compiled from the files of The Democrat by Loyal Frisbie


BARTOW Today we live in
a world that rushes like a jet
screaming down a short runway,
a dizzy blur to the passenger on
board. The extreme pressure of
demanding schedules touches
every area of life, at times, threat-
ening to shear the very rivets of
our beings. Unrelenting "busy-
ness" is the norm for life. There is
always one more deadline, one
more appointment, one more
task, and never enough time.
Pressures mount, and we reach a
point of overload, feeling as
helpless as a leaf swirling in a
raging windstorm.
Our schedules for the Lord are
not exempted from the pressure.
They experience the same time
demands.
Strange as it may seem, our
very service for the Lord can


come between us and our God
when we allow our busy'sched-
ules to become the driving force
in our lives instead of His Spirit.
As children of God, we must
remember that God has given us
all the time we need to do His
will in His way. God gave each of
us 24 hours yesterday, seven days
last week, .and 12 months last
year.
The use of time is a decision
process, not a product of fate.
Time is a nonrenewable resource,
a gift from God. Once it is gone, it
is gone forever. We cannot pro-
duce it nor can we control it. We
can only manage our lives within
it.
Time and money are not syn-
onymous. Lost wealth can be
regained; not so with time. With
time, one can earn money, but all


the finances in the world cannot
buy even one second of time.
More accurately, time is life, a
God-given opportunity to serve
Him, and time is in God's control.
Our God has entrusted to each
of us a precious amount of time
here on earth; time to serve Him,
and bring honor to His Name.
Servanthood is our highest
privilege, yet "busyness" in the
service of God is no excuse for
neglecting God.
May our prayer be as Moses in
Ps. 90:12: "Teach us to number
our days, that we may apply our
hearts unto wisdom."
The wisest and greatest use of
our time is to use it for that which
will outlast time the things of
God.

I use the term "press release"
because I doubt that there's a
newspaper in the country that
would print it as news. It was
good for entertainment value, but
the guy who paid a public rela-

Lake Wales Man Dies After Center To
Move After
Altercation at County Jail sale


A Lake Wales man died Sun-
day night at Central County Jail
in Bartow, after an altercation
with detention deputies, Polk
County Sheriff Grady Judd said.
James Lee Griffin, 21, of 401
Winston Avenue, died around
9:30.
According to Judd, Griffin
was arrested Saturday by Lake
Wales police for a violation of
probation after he was involved
in an argument at the I-Hop res-
taurant on State Road 60. As
. part of his probation, Griffin was
required to observe a curfew be-
tween 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., and
the encounter occurred around
3:47 a.m., the sheriff said.
He was booked into the Polk
County Jail early that day, and
placed in general population at
the Central County Jail, Judd
said.
Saturday afternoon, said
Judd, Griffin caused a distur-
bance in the dorm with a broken
broomstick, and was placed in an
isolation cell "without incident."
At approximately 8:30 Sunday
night, another inmate in the iso-
lation area began causing a dis-
turbance. When deputies re-


sponded to the other inmate,
Griffin began banging loudly on
his cell door, shattering the shat-
terproof glass window.
When deputies opened his cell
door, Griffin charged them, Judd
said.
Deputies restrained Griffin
using physical force and a Nova
Electronic Riot Shield for protec-
tion. Once he was restrained
with handcuffs and leg shackles,
he was taken across the hall to
the nurse's station.
Griffin later passed out and
became unconscious, Judd said.
A county ambulance was called,
and deputies and nurses at-
tempted unsuccessfully to revive
him through CPR.
Griffin was pronounced dead
at the nurse's station at 9:31
p.m.
Both Chief Medical Examiner
Stephen Nelson and Assistant
State Attorney John Aguero re-
sponded to the scene Sunday
night to begin their investiga-
tions. The cause of Griffin's
death is still under investigation
by the ME's office..
Two other investigations are


being conducted in the case: the
Polk. County Sheriffs Office
Criminal Investigations Division
is conducting a death investiga-
tion; the PCSO Administrative
Investigations Section is con-
ducting an internal investiga-
tion.
The shield device used to sub-
due Griffin uses an electric shock
to temporarily disable an in-
mate.
A friend said Griffin told
authorities that he suffered from
bipolar disorder.

School Board Charters Bok
Academy Under Protest


By BRETT LOWE
Staff Writer
Despite the Polk County
School Board's initial rejection of
the Edward Bok Academy char-
ter application, the contract ne-
gotiations for the school will be-
gin shortly.
Both the charter appeals
board and the Florida State
Board of Education rejected the
school board's reasons for deny-
ing the application, and the state
board issued a mandate that the
school board accept the applica-
tion.
The school board's primary
reasons for denying Bok Acade-
my's charter were that the appli-
cation did not have specific, out-
lined goals for the learning proc-
ess, or a differentiated reading
program for regular and low-per-
forming students.
Florida law requires school
boards to reject charter applica-
tions that do not have a differen-
tiated reading program.
School Board Attorney Wes
Bridges said that the state
board's mandate left the school
board with two options to ac-
cept the charter, or to go ahead
with the legal challenge.
The legal challenge would rest
on two allegations:
That the state-level charter
appeals board did not have the
proper composition. The board is
supposed to have the same num-
ber of representatives from tra-
ditional public schools and char-
ter schools. Bridges said that
only one member of the board
from traditional public schools
attended the meeting at which
the appeals board overruled the
Polk County school board.
That the state board's man-
date effectively waived the re-
quirement of Florida law to re-
ject applications lacking the dif-
ferentiated reading program.
The State Board of Education
does not have that power,
Bridges said.
Bridges did not believe any-
one on either the review board or
the state board actually read the
charter application, because "if
they look through that applica-
tion, the two things they will not
find will be achievement goals
and a differentiated reading pro-
gram."
Going forward with the legal
challenge, however, would be "a
long, bloody battle," to include a
writ of mandamus and possible
penalties until the case was re-
solved, he said. A writ of manda-
mus is a court order requiring a
public official or agency to per-
form its duties under the law.
Even if the. school board won,
Bridges said, Lake Wales Char-
ter Schools would only have to
fix the application and it would
be in the same position next
year. While he believed that the
school board was right, he also
believed that, in the end, it
wouldn't be worth the battle, he
told the school board.
School Supt. Dr. Gail McKin-
zie agreed with Bridges, saying
that she stood by her initial rec-
ommendation to deny the appli-
cation, but that politically it
would be too difficult to fight the
state board.
Instead, Bridges drafted a mo-
tion which said that the school
board thought it had not been in
error, and that the charter ap-
peals board and the state board
of education were in eiror, but
that it would accept the applica-
tion because it was in the best
interests of the school board to
do so. This language allowed the
board to place its objections into
the public record.
The motion passed unani-
mously.
School board members said
that they bear no ill will toward
Lake Wales Charter Schools,
and will go into the contract ne-
gotiations with good faith. They

Two Fort Meade Men Share

Stories Of Cancer Survival


Two Fort Meade men are sharing
their very personal stories to aid in the
fight against cancer.
LeRoy Brinson and Austin Dawson
are two of the four honorary chairmen
for the American Cancer Society Relay
for Life in Fort Meade.
Last week, the other two, Barbara
Watts and Emily Zondra Brown were
featured in The Democrat and The
Leader, along with the Bartow chair-
men, Jenny Humphries and Roberta
Wise.
The Fort Meade event is scheduled
for April 7-8 at Frank S. Battle Field;
Bartow's Relay will be April 28-29 at
Bartow Memorial Stadium. Relay is a
fundraiser for education and research,
a celebration of surviving the disease,
and a remembrance of those who died
from it.
Relay For Life is the American
Cancer Society's premier fund-raising
event.


Austin Dawson
Twenty-four years old and
counting.
My name is Austin Dawson
and I am a brain cancer survivor.
My tumor was a mixture of
malignant and benign cells. I was
first diagnosed, Friday, Feb. 11,
2005, at 5 p.m. Since then, my
goals and priorities have changed
a lot.
Life was good for me'until that
point, in the previous 10 months I
had graduated from UCF with a
degree in mechanical engineer-
ing, had my first professional job
and was saving money to buy my
first house.
As I said, life was good, but
believe it or not, since that time
life has been great because of my
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
my family, friends, and H. Lee
Moffitt Cancer Center. I come
from a very close family made up
of my mom, Tami; dad, Joe; and
sister, Hillary; not to mention all
of my grandparents, aunts,
uncles and cousins.
It hasn't been an easy year, but
it has been an overwhelming year
with all of the treatments, mira-
cles, and blessings that I have
had. I still have part of the tumor
left, but I'n a fighter.
I've tried to do everything that
I was told I shouldn't be able to
physically or mentally do because


of the side effects of surgery and
treatment. I bought a weight
machine and. lifted weights on a
regular basis between chemother-
apy treatments. I've made myself
eat even when I had lost the
desire.
P I celebrated the ending of.
chemo treatments by taking a 17-
mile bike ride on the Virginia
Creeper Trail and .hiking in the
Cumberland Gap. Sure I got
tired, but kept going because I
had a point to prove: this disease
was not going to bring me down.
I used my sense of humor to
keep the mood light with family,
friends and me. I joked about
having cancer, my symptoms, my
hair or lack of hair, and being a
card-carrying member of the port
club, which now enables me to
speed through metal detectors.
My road to recovery hasbeen a
journey that has brought my
immediate family and me closer
to other family members, friends,
coworkers and acquaintances.
I've asked myself how can I
E-'.l repay everyone for their
countless prayers and kind deeds.
The only way possible is to. be a
survivor and pay it forward with
my prayers and acts of kindness.
I consider it an honor to be
affiliated with the American
Cancer Society and to represent
dancer survivors in Fort Meade's
Relay for Life.

You'd think it would be easy
to spot a kid with a vision
problem, but the signs aren't
always so obvious. One in
four children has a vision
problem, but only an eye doctor
can tell for sure. And, since
80 percent of all childhood

and good vision go hand in

County To Be More Cautious

In Leasing Office Buildings


Polk County government offi-
cials plan to be a little more cau-
tious in signing leases for office
buildings as the result of their
experience in leasing an office
building in Bartow.
Commissioner Randy Wilkin-
son raised the issue. He said the
county leased a building at 305
North Jackson Ave. for $125,000
per year plus utilities for three
years, but had to spend $175,000
for repairs before moving in.
The county leases about 225
buildings, he said, recommend-
ing that the commission exercise
"more due diligence before mov-
ing in."
The county "had to get some
new properties quick" because of
the appointment of four new
judges, he said.
County Mgr. Mike Herr told
the commission that on Sept: 14,
2005, the county approved a
lease with Fleet Lane for the of-


fice building. The building had
been leased for 12 years for sev-
eral county offices in the past,
but was vacant when the new
lease was signed.
The building was leased for
the county probation department
and -the court administrator's
pre-trial release offices, he said.
Space in the court house was.
needed to make room for four
new judges authorized for the
Tenth Judicial Circuit, he said.
"We were trying to move
quickly to accommodate the four
new judges. We negotiated an 'as
is' lease," Herr said.
"Under the circumstances, we
did the best we could."
After looking at other sites,
the county staff determined that
Lane's building was a good
choice.
"In the future, we want to ne-
gotiate a 'due diligence' period in

Adams And Sons Service

Center Sets Celebration


Adams and Sons Service Cen-
ter, 295 First Avenue South,
Bartow, will hold a 30-year anni-
versary celebration on Wednes-
day, March 29.
At the event, which will fea-
ture cake, soda and balloons,
owner Raymond Adams, for-
merly of Adams and Sons Texaco
in Bartow, will celebrate 30
years of service to the commu-
nity.
Formerly Weaver and Son
Auto Service Center, owned by
George Weaver, the Service Cen-
ter was sold when Weaver de-
cided to retire.
"Through these many years,
Hilda and I have been honored


to serve our many customers, al-
though the word 'customer'
really doesn't describe the
friendship we have shared with
so many," Weaver said. "One of
the things I will miss the most is
the opportunity to greet and visit
with my customers.
"Although the decision to re-
tire was a difficult one, I could
think of no one better to con-
tinue to serve my customers
than Ray Adams."
During the celebration on
Wednesday, Adams is encourag-
ing former customers to stop by
and say hello and experience the
larger repair facility.


all of our leases." Herr said.
The county has some 225
leases, he said, and occupies 3.5
million square feet of space, both
owned and leased.
"I don't think all is rotten.
.his was a mistake," Herr said.
"Right now, the owner has
some expenses. He has incurred
$124,800 for repairs to the exte-
rior of the building."
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
pointed out that the commission
approved the lease.
"It's our mistake as well as
yours," Myers said.
Commissioner Paul Senft said
the county would have had to
spend part of the $175,000 to re-
model the building for use by the
judicial system.
"The buck stops with us,"
Wilkinson told Herr. "Thanks for
sharing the responsibility with
us."

with regard to the subject Consent Order
have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding. The petition must
conform to the requirements specified
above and be filed (received) within 21
days of receipt of this notice in the Office
of General Counsel at the above address
of the Department. Failure to petition
within the allowed time frame constitutes
a waiver of any right such person has to
request a hearing under Sections 120.569
and 1 20.57, Florida Statutes, and to par-
ticipate as a party to this proceeding. Any
subsequent intervention will only be at the
approval of the presiding officer upon mo-
tion filed pursuant to Rule 28-106.205,
Florida Administrative Code.
A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the Consent Order may file
a timely petition for an administrative
hearing under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes, or may choose
to pursue mediation as an alternative rem-
edy under Section 120.573, Florida Stat-
utes, before the deadline for filing a peti-
tion. Choosing mediation will not adversely
affect the right to a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement. The proce-
dures for pursuing mediation are set forth
below.
Mediation may only take place if the De-
partment and all the parties to the pro-
ceeding agree that mediation is appropri-
ate. A person may pursue mediation by
reaching a mediation agreement with all
parties to the proceeding (which include
the Respondent, the Department, and any
person who has filed a timely and suffi-
cient petition for a hearing) and by show-
ing how the substantial interests of each
mediating party are affected by the Con-
sent Order. The agreement must be filed
in (received by) the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Com-
monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tal-
lahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within 10
days after the deadline as set forth above
for the filing of a petition.
The agreement to mediate must include
the following:


(a) The names, addresses, and tele-
phone numbers of any persons who may
attend the mediation;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the mediator selected by the
parties, or a provision for selecting a me-
diator within a specified time;
(c) The agreed allocation of the costs
and feed associated with the mediation;
(d) The agreement of the parties on the
confidentiality of discussions and docu-
ments introduced during mediation;
(e) The date, time, and place of the
first mediation session, or a deadline for
holding the first session, if no mediator
has yet been chosen;
(f) The name of each' party's represen-
tative who shall have authority to settle or
recommend settlement; and
(g) Either an explanation of how the
substantial interests of each mediating
party will be affected by the action dr pro-
posed action addressed in this notice of
intent or a statement clearly identifying
the petition for hearing that each party
has already filed, and incorporating it by
reference.
(h) The signatures of all parties or their
authorized representatives.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, the timely agreement of all par-
ties to mediate will toll the time limitations
imposed by Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes, for requesting
and holding an administrative hearing. Un-
less otherwise agreed by the parties, the
mediation must be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of the agreement. If
mediation results in settlement of the ad-
ministrative dispute, the Department must
enter a final order incorporating the agree-
ment of the parties. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by such.a
modified final decision of the Department
have a right to petition for a hearing only
in accordance with the requirements for
such petitions set forth above, and must
therefore file their petitions within 21 days
of receipt of this notice. If mediation ter-
minates without settlement of the dis-
pute, the Department shall notify all par-
ties in writing that the administrative hear-
ing processes under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available
for disposition of the dispute, and the no-
tice will specify the deadlines that then will
apply for challenging the agency action
and electing remedies under those two
statutes.

Library

Celebrates

History

Bartow Public Library will
celebrate 109 years of library
service in the city of Bartow, as
well as.eight years of residence
in the new building at 2150
South Broadway.
To celebrate these anniversa-
ries, the library board, director,
staff and members of the Friends
of the Library will hold a cele-
bration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on
Friday, March 31.
Cake and cookies will be
served in the lobby.
On March 3, 1897, the Cou-
rier-Informant published "a call
to interested citizens" to form a
public library and reading room.
Before the end of the month,
an association was formed to
open a circulating library for free
use by members and for a small
fee by others.
Through the years, the library
moved from its first room above
the Polk County National Bank
to a ground floor location at
Broadway/Summerlin.
Later a Carnegie-funded
building was erected at Parker
and Wilson, and eight years ago
the move was made into the pre-
sent building.
A picture display about the
history of the library will be on
exhibit. The official history book
also will be available at'the cele-
bration for $1.
For more information on the
library, call 534-0131.

First Five-Year Fishing Licenses
Come With Free Equipment


cise taxes that anglers and boat-
ers have paid into the system for
use in Florida on Federal Aid in
Sport Fish Restoration projects.
Also, free freshwater fishing
weekend is April 1 and 2. It ex-
empts residents and non-resi-
dents from freshwater fishing li-
cense requirements for those two
days. All other rules apply, and
the exemption does not extend to
saltwater fishing.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission says
the free weekend is a great
chance to take a buddy who's
been wanting, to give it a try or
for parents who haven't bought a
license yet to take their children
fishing for.the first time.


More Minorities Taking

AP Tests In Florida


Governor Jeb Bush and Edu-
cation Commissioner John L.
Winn announced that Florida
continues to make impressive
gains in the number of students
taking and successfully complet-
ing Advanced Placement (AP)
tests.
Between 1999 and 2005, the
number of Florida students tak-
ing AP exams increased by 125
percent.
The most significant increase
in test-takers was again among
Florida's African American stu-
dents, with an increase of more
than 20 percent since 2004. His-
panic and Asian students also
saw significant increases, with
the number of students taking
AP exams in both groups in-
creasing more than 16 percent.
Overall,.there was a 15.3 per-
cent increase in the number of
AP test takers in Florida from
2004 to 2005.
Between 1999 and 2005, the
number of Hispanic and African
American students taking AP ex-
ams has risen by nearly 180 per-
cent, with the number of Asian
and white students taking the
exams increasing by 120 percent.
Florida is one of only three
states to eliminate the equity
gap in Hispanic student partici-
pation in AP courses.
Although Florida experienced
significant growth in enrollment
since 1999, the boom in AP par-
ticipation far exceeds the in-
crease in 11th.and 12th grade
enrollment. Overall, nearly 24
percent of Florida juniors and


seniors participate in AP exams.
AP exam scores in Florida
have also been steadily on the
rise. The number of Florida stu-
dents scoring a 3 or better on AP
exams increased by almost nine
percent since 2004, with African
American and Hispanic students
scoring 3 or higher increasing by
nearly 10 percent in the same
time 'period. Nationally, the
number of African American and:
Hispanic students scoring 3 or
better increased by only 8.0 and
8.5 percent, respectively.

ida's participation and perform-
ance on AP, visit www.firn.edu/

Lady Jackets Blast Bolts, 9-3



The first 3,000 anglers to buy
a five-year freshwater fishing li-
cense between now and April 30
will receive a package of free

The Ridge Community Bolts
didn't read the script.
The newest high school in the
area wasn't supposed to score
against the Number Two Class
4A Bartow High School Lady
Jackets softball team last Tues-
day at The Hive.
Instead, the Bolts wrote their
own script and gave the Ladies
their best effort, scoring three
runs in the process. But Bar-
tow's offense was still able to run
up nine runs of their own to.turn
aside the Bolts' unexpected pro-
duction with a 9-3 victory.
Bartow was never in danger
of losing the game, as they
scored all of their runs in the
first four innings of play, while
the Bolts only scored one run in
the same amount of time. But
the beleaguered Bolts battled to
the end, producing a few nervous
moments for the Bartow faithful.
The head scratching for BHS
began in the top of the fifth.
With Bartow ahead 9-1, the
Bolts were able to bang, blast,
and bloop five base hits .and
score two runs.
But Kaly Flood, the winning
pitcher for Bartow, was able to
finish off the inning with no
more Bug blood shed. With the
exception of the fifth inning,
Flood had a strong game, tossing
six strikeouts over seven in-
nings.
"Li'l Lightning" Whitney Lit-
tle was the star Bug batter, go-
ing three-for-four at the plate
with a triple and two RBIs. She
also scored two runs.. Emily
Ricketts was next, batting .500
on the evening with two singles,
an RBI, and one run scored.
Kara Rutenbar (two-for-
three), Racheal Jackson, Rachael
Giddens, and Brianna Leverett
rounded out the batting for the
Lady Jackets. Mallory Butler
also had an RBI on a sacrifice fly
and almost took off Coach Glen
Rutenbar's head on a line drive
foul ball that screamed past the
coach's left ear.
Interested fans may still be
able to see the indentations in
the coach's box where Rutenbar
took an unexpected and forceful
seat on the clay. Rumor has it


SBartow Lions Club will host
its 29th annual golf tournament
Saturday. April 22.
The event will take place at
the Bartow Golf Course.
The tournament is open to

Men of faith have olten sought, the solitude of caves. Elijah heard the
"still small..voice" of God in a cave at Mt. Horeb. And indeed many of
the early Christians practiced their faith in catacombs, which were
underground tunnels where the Romans buried their dead. These early
Christians were often forced there because Christianity was prohibited
in the Roman Empire. But even after the Emperor Constantine lifted
the ban. on Christianity, many .Christians still sought the solitude of
caves. The desert fathers, who were early Christian monks, went into
caves as an aid to meditation. Of course, this practice was not confined
just to Christianity. Islamic tradition has it that Moharimed was in the
habit'of ret hiring to a cave in the mountains for prayer and meditation,
and Buddhist monks in Tiber were known to spend long periods of time
meditating in caves, sometimes even dying there. Legend has it that
their mummified, remains were sometimes found in these caves in the
Lotus position. What is it about caves that are so inviting to the soul in
search of God? Perhaps, caves are a primitive sensory deprivation
chamber, being devoid of light, sound, and fluctuations in temperature.
'Sometimes, we all feel the need to "get away from it all,",and caves
allow us to escape, albeit only temporarily, the hustle and bustle of
everyday life,.which can drown out the still small voice of God. So, per-
haps we should find ourselves a cave, literally or figuratively, and allow
ourselves to listen to God.
And there he came to a cave, and lodged there; and
behold, the word of the Lord came to him. R.S.V. 1
Kings 19;9

"What are we going to do

His question took me by sur-

SStill, shortly after the reluc-

This surprising, sudden royal

Silent Night? Not At My House ...


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

People say,-as they get older,
their hearing is not what it used
to be.
I have found this to be true
Sfor myself.
The older I get and I plan
to get as old as I can the more
SI hear noises in the middle of the
Night. Noises, I might add, that I
;have never heard before.
I'm not against noise; person-
ally, I try to make as much noise
as possible. I'm just against
'noise not orchestrated with my
sleeping habits.
SAnd .at this juncture of my ca-
reer, sleeping has become a
habit. In fact,'I might describe it
as.an addiction. I tried breaking
this addiction once, but my wife
complained I was just becoming
crotchety.
When I was younger, I didn't
need as much sleep as today.
Some experts opine that as a
person gets older, they don't
need as much sleep as they use
'to need.
I find this absolutely, posi-
S'tively untrue. I need more sleep
today than I have ever needed in
my entire life.
Actually, what I really need is
to be able to sleep all night with-
out disturbance. My definition of
' disturbance is anything I hear
.when I am trying to go to sleep,
and I demand everything to be
quiet. I will not mention any
names, but this also includes
persons who have the annoying
habit of trying, to talk while I'm.
trying to sleep.
It is not that I'm not inter-
ested in what this unnamed per-


son has to say; it's just that I
don't*want to hear it when I'm
trying to go to sleep. People have
all day to get whatever is on
.their mind all talked out. That is
why God gave us daylight hours.
It seems of late that no matter
when I go to bed or how long I
have actually slept, in the morn-
ing I always need just one more
minute of sleep. That one minute
more of sleep is the most crucial
aspect of my nightly siesta.
Personally, I do not believe in
alarm clocks. I think they have
evolved over the years from some
Neanderthal idea that it is im-
portant to get up in the morning
at a certain time. I'm of the opin-:
ion that getting up is a relative
thing. One man's wake-up time
is another man's "Please, don't
disturb me yet."
If God wanted me to get up at.
a certain time every morning, he
would have made it a little more
appealing. As far as I'm con-
cerned, I know I have slept
enough when my wife is stand-
ing at the bedroom doorway,
both hands on her hip, and say-
ing to me in that wonderful voice
of hers, "Are you ever going to
get out of that bed today?"
I suppose I would be more
willing to get up earlier if there
would not be all that noise dur-
ing the night. I believe in silent
..night, and not just at Christmas.
It is amazing to me how intel-
ligent these noises in the night
can be. They are absolutely quiet
until I'm just about ready to drift
off into La-la-land, then there is
a medley of screeching, yelling,
and screaming right outside my
window.


For example, cats are wonder-
ful creatures. It is not that I hate
cats; it is, rather, I abhor cats
making noise when I'm trying to
catnap. For the most part, these
cats mill around throughout the
day and refuse to pierce the day-
time with any fracas. They stay
out of my way and I reciprocate
by staying out of their way. They
keep quiet all day long, but then
when I'm just about ready to
drift off to sleep, they start a
Hullabaloo concert right out my
window.
Show me a cat that is silent
all night long, and I will show
you one I have just shot with my
pistol.
SCats do not know how to be si-
lent at night. This confuses me
because all day long you don't
hear one little whimper from
these creatures.
It does not matter what time I
go to bed all of the cats within
a 10-mile radius of my bedroom
are alerted to this pertinent in-
formation. All I can figure is
there must be some sort of a fe-
line union, or maybe it is tabby-
telepathy for all I know. Just two
nights ago, I counted 2,972 cats
outside niy bedroom window, all
fighting each other at the same
time.
.Perhaps, and this is pure con-
jecture on my part, these cats
are working in shifts, which is
why the entire night can be thor-
oughly covered with screeches,
squawks, and meows that grate
on my fragile nerves.
'When the neighborhood cats
finish their nocturnal routine
and settle down for the night,
quietness settles over my back-


yard, which is conducive to
sleep. At this point, the only bird
the neighborhood cats have not
successfully chased out of my
backyard awakes to serenade a
new day.
If it is not the night noises
keeping me awake, it is worrying
about something anything. '-
A verse in the Bible gives me
some encouragement:
"Except the Lord build the
house, they labour in vain that
build it: except the Lord keep the
city, the watchman waketh but
in vain. 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 127:1-
2 KJV).
Not all the cats in the neigh-
borhood can take from me what
God delights to give me.

PEOPLE WHO READ
NEWSPAPERS ARE


It all starts with Newspapers


forgive" said our Lord (Mark
11:25). But forgiving political op-
ponents can be. difficult to do.
Jonah was upset over the for-
giveness granted to the immoral
king and his subjects. This
seems to have been one of the
reasons he hadn't wanted to
urge them to face up to their
sins; fearing they would be for-
given and the city spared. He
preferred judgment to grace.
Now their repentance had'
robbed him of the joy of witness-
ing their destruction. "I knew
you were a gracious God, and
merciful, slow to anger and of
great kindness," he complained.
Can you identify with this
pouting prophet?
Do you know someone you
don't want to forgive?
Power to forgive comes from
being forgiven, and both our own


forgiveness and the ability to for-
give are the results of God's love.
Forgiving another person may
enable you, to pray more effec-
tively for your family, your
church, your country, even your
president and other national
leaders.
Prayer also demands self-ex-
amination.
A promise given to King Solo-
mon and his people about 'con-
fessing their sins and seeking
forgiveness offers a solution to
our present moral and spiritual
needs.
"If lMy people who are called
by My name will humble them-
selves, and pray and seek My
face, and turn from their wicked
ways, then I will hear from
heaven, and will forgive their sin
and heal their land" (2 Chroni-
cles 7:14).

Out of My Range Compiled bydavyn Wade


Spring


Into Good Taste


Spring is here, and with is a desire to
eat healthier, lighter fare, full of the fla-
'vors of the season.
So this week, we celebrate spring, and
offer dishes from www.meals.com.

Asparagus with Sesame Seeds
AnAsian flavor trio in this easy side
dish sesame, soy sauce, and garlic -
adds variety to a popular spring veg-
etable. This dish can also be served at
room temperature, making it perfect for
elegant picnic fare.
1-1/2 pounds asparagus
1-1/2 teaspoons margarine
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
In a large pot, bring to a boil enough
water to cover the asparagus. Cut
asparagus into 1-inch lengths, discarding
the tough stems. Boil the asparagus
uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes, or urtil just
tender. Drain and rinse with cold water.
Melt margarine in a large saucepan
over medium-high heat. Add sesame
seeds and cook, stirring for 3 to 4 min-
utes, until seeds are lightly browned.
Add asparagus, soy sauce, sesame oil,
pepper and garlic. Toss gently and cook
for another 2 minutes, or until the
asparagus is thoroughly heated through.
A tablespoon or two of freshly grated
ginger, added with the garlic, would add
even more authentic Asian flavor.
Serves six.


Spring Gazpacho Salad,
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
2 pounds cucumbers, diced
2 pounds tomatoes, diced
1-1/2 pounds whole kernel corn, fresh,
frozen thawed, or canned, drained
1 pound green bell pepper, seeded,
diced
1/2 pound celery, chopped
In a bowl, combine oil, cider vinegar,
honey, and white pepper; mix well and
set aside.
In a large serving bowl, combine
cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, bell peppers
and celery. Drizzle the reserved dressing
on top and toss to mix well. Serve chilled.
Serves 10.


Springtime Quiche
1-1/2 pounds asparagus spears
8 strips of bacon
2 cups grated Swiss cheese
4 eggs
1-1/2 cups half and half
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 baked pie shell
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook asparagus spears, covered, in a
small amount of water 6 to 8 minutes, or
until tender-crisp; drain. Set aside about
16 of the spears and chop the remainder
into 1/2-inch pieces.
Meanwhile, cook 8 strips of bacon
until crisp; drain.
Arrange the chopped asparagus,
bacon and Swiss cheese in a 9-inch baked
pie shell.
Beat eggs, stir in half and half, salt,
nutmeg and pepper. Pour over the
asparagus mixture in the pastry shell.
Bake 35 minutes.

carrots and scaflions- to J ggs


























by Lena Connor-
Gershwin said it best when hewrote, "Sum-
mertime and livin' is easy." Lately, contro-
versy clouds the beloved season and puts it
on everyone's mind slightly early this year.
'Save Our Summers,' a movement born
in South Florida proposes a gigantic shed-
ule change for all public schools in the up-
coming years. "We are concerned about the
impact that the early August start date has
on our students and teachers. It is time the
south woke up and switched to a traditional
calendar that's starts around Labor Day;"'
Support for the change prompted a bill be-
ing proposed to ihe state legislature earlier
this month "A non-tradiiional school year'
undermines public education. % hen the
school ear is allo\\ed to start earlier and ear-
lierin earlier in the summer months, it inhib-
its teachers' abilities to continue their educa-
tion. -It minimizes students' opportunities to
gain workplace experience," said Williams.
The change would give students longer sum-
mers centered around the months of July and

'an anonymous Bartow High School fresh-:
man said. "and it doesn't matter what
age; you are, but when you're ready."
However, before teens can consider
themselves ready to have sex, they must:
first learn about it. Something that seems
so simple carries abundant baggage. Sex
can bring a range of effects such as plea-
sure, pain. acceptance, and rejection.
A person must ..possess the emo-
tional maturity in order to with-.
stand these pressures, and this ability
comes at different times in peoples' lives.
Relationships these days seem to rely on
physical displays ofaffection. After a certain
amount of tine together, the couple begins to
feel love. This emotion gives theima belief :
that the, should "round another base," or
take-the relationship another step. "It's ok to

the traditional northern schedule. "It would be

be made simple. And of course longer is al-
ways beerr" says Rose Williams, a student.
With this length cones a severe cutback on
breaktime duringthe schoolyear. Threeweeks
at Christmas and one at Thankgiving will not
be an option. The districts have bloated the
year with an excessive number of days off.
They shouldn't be missed," said Williams.
However not all see eye to eye on this issue.
"I would suffocate without long and
frequent -rest breaks throughout the
year. Plus its great being able to va-
cation in a season besides summer."
If the bill goes through, winter semester
would end after Christmas break in Janu-
ary or February. "People here just aren't
used to that at all. While it might not hurt
us, there just isn't any point to it. Why al-
ter something .that isn't causing any prob-
lems and e en one is satisfied irh?"

be something special that two people share."

teenagers') Does this mean that e er-time

this feeling as an excuse to become sexu-
ally active, their "list" would begin to grow.

People need to know when to "do it," and
when.to just have fun in the relationship.
Despite the numerous teens involved in
the sexually active population, many choose
abstinence. This defines a person who vows
not to have sex. While this works for some,
it does not always do the same for others.
Abstinence can be complicated and dif-
ficult to maintain for :an extended

Spring break, a time of beach
towels, sand between the toes, and
the danger of sun related diseases
While tanning at the beach, adults
and' teenagers alike should re-
member the risks of sun exposure.
"I never wear sunblock," said Michael
Gay, a freshman at Bartow High School.
With alternatives like airbrush tanning
and tanning beds, the risks of tanning seem
minimal, but in reality, the risks still exist.
"I do not think there is .enough aware-
ness about the risks of sun exposure, not
even parents try to enforce it these days,"

said Heather Rock, a freshman at BHS.
Teenagers on a quest to get that "just
back from the beach" look should take
into consideration the use of a sunblock
with an SPF (Sun Proof Factor) of 15 or
higher, to prevent harm from sun exposure,
which causes skin cancer and melanoma.
"I do not think people are safer about sun ex-
posure because people that have been affect-
ed aren't telling other people. That's the best
way for someone to understand the risks,"
said Melanie Williams, a freshman at BHS.

Family Dinners Fade From Homes


by Michaelyn Robitzsch
Censorship, which includes the con-
trol of speech and other forms of hu-
man expression, remains the arch en-
emy of writers who fear being restricted
by the red tape of society's values.
Censoring works stifles the writer's
creativity, not to mention it violates the
First Ammendment, which supposedly
protects America's right to free speech.
When writers compose their works,
they pour their feelings into every
stanza or line. They write about life ex-
periences, which hold both emotional
and physical values. Sometimes, these
experiences can be graphic and pain-
ful for those reading the material.
Recently, Ashley Barnes, a senior
at Bartow High School, submitted an
original poem to the Polk County Coun-
cil of Teachers of English poetry con-
test. The poem focused on a person try-
ing to hide their struggle with bulimia.
Barnes received a certificate from BHS,
but the Council would not allow her poem
to be published, and they did not recognize
her poetic achievement with a certificate.
The poem involved a subject that
teens today struggle with. Even though
four out of every hundred teens suf-
fer from bulimia, judges ruled this sub-
ject too heavy for readers to handle.
Terry Frost, Barnes' AP English
teacher, said, "I have known for a long
time that this contest does not favor
poems about unpleasant topics, but
I thought a poem showing so clearly
that an illness is painful and frighten-
ing was important and acceptable."
Apparently, instead of dealing with
these darker subjects, the Council
would rather tuck them safely away.
If everyone centered their writing around


Spades



by Ashley Barnes
Tom along edges of cardboard
Bulimia
The girl shouts for a helping hand
White like cream from a skim milk latte
Quadrilaterial ofshadowless spades
A frail body with indigo veigns
That pop in the smokey light

Connected to a parallel family
One-in-four
Predict the odds

A color scheme of red wash tango
Liquid recognition pours from
Her cracked lips.
A throat coroded from.
Acidic repetition

Intertwined with a blackened fade
Great pretender
Flipped upon the make-shift table
Her bluff called
And a scab of poker face
Is all that remains


whether or not a certain subject would be
dark, literature and poetry would be about
rainbows and sunshine, when in reality,
people also experience rain and hailstorms.
Recently, Channel One News reported
on a Colorado high school that suspended
teacher Jay Bennish because he quoted
other'snegative comments aboutPresident
Bush. According to a tape that one student
made, Bennish's comments on social class
and a statement that he made suggested
that some people compare Bush to Hitler.
For this mere quoted opinion, admin-
istrators have placed Bennish on leave.
Something has to be done to-
abolish this growing problem.
TV shows that discuss sex, feature
violence, and contain drug related ac-
tivity recieve ratings of TV-14 or
higher. Some even feature a recording
before the show begins, warning audi-
ences of the sensitive material that may
not be suitable for younger viewers.
If these types of "warnings" ex-
ist for TV shows, can we not do
the same for poems or stories?
Something as simple as an aster-
isk can identify sensitive material.
Judges should use these tools instead
of outlawing the work all together.
Though the council has the right to
deny any poem from being published
in their magazine, they must also
consider the fact that people need to read
more than just cheery poems about high
school containing pretty, vivid imagery.
Not everything in life can be
summed up by flowery details; some-
times writers must release their in-
ner feelings, and let out their black,
gothic nightmares. These strong feel-
ings help them and others to cope,
allowing them to face the future.

Having dinner with the family means
gathering around a large table filled with
delicious food, all.the while laughing,
talking, and sharing ideas. Parents become
busy and children transform into young
adults, facing more than their parents
know about. As the years go on, the din-
ner table has a lot fewer faces around it.
Families used to eat dinner together ev-
ery night, but a recent fad has families
eating dinner together less than three
times a week. "I eat dinner with my fam-
ily maybe twice a week, like on Fridays
and Saturdays," said Jason Higdon, 4 ju-
nior at Bartow High School. With hec-
tic schedules for the parents, and endless
work for the kids, sperlling time at the
dinner table seems far from their minds.
Statistically, teens who eat five or
six meals a week with the family have
less than a 1 in 4 chance of smoking
cigarettes, doing marijuana, drinking al-

Starving Plato's Closet Sells B L
Labels for Less Berkley Miller


by Krystina Anthony
Prices for quality, name-brand clothes
have risen ridiculously. With the price
of living rising every day, purchasing af-
fordable clothes seem a distant memory.
Now, teens can buy almost new
clothes without breaking their bud-
get. This godsend comes in the form
of Plato's Closet, a consignment shop
filled with name brand clothes for less.
With everything from Hollister
to American Eagle, Plato's Closet
has something for everyone. While
prices in the mall range close to or
above the hundreds, Plato's Closet offers
quality, second hand clothing for a frac-
tion of the original price. They also offer a
large array of accessories and things like
CD's, books, movies, and lava lamps.
Teens can also sell their items they no
longer need with no appointment neces-
sary. They accept gently used name-brand
clothesandpayonthe spot."Ilikethesound
of this store. I'll definitely shop there!"
Danielle Durham, aBHS sophomore, said.
So whether one needs to clean out his
or her closet, or simply add to it, she
or he can visit Plato's Closet, located
in the Alamo Plaza on S. Florida Ave.

As students swarmed his desk with
assignments to turn in, Bartow High's
newest Math teacher, Berkley Mill-
er, addressed each one with a grin.
"Mr. Miller's a really nice person," said
sophomore Jessica Sellers, "and he al-
ways writes everything out on the board,
making the class easier to understand."
Miller receives similar satisfaction from
working with his students. "The best as-
pect of being a teacher is working with the
students-and knowing that you have helped
them learn something new," said Miller.
Anticipation of this reward first led to
Miller's interest in teaching. "I always
knew I loved working with others, and I
enjoy helping out as well," said Miller.
Though previously living and work-
ing in Fort Lauderdale, Bartow attracted
Miller with its "peacefulness and small-
town charm. I needed a change of scen-
ery, and Bartow seemed like a nice town."
Though still adjusting to the move, it
seems that Miller has already made a
positive impression on his students. "I've
heard a lot of good things about Mr.
Miller. My friends say he's a nice, fun


cohol, growing depressed, or attempt-
ing suicide. Not only do kids who eat
with their family get into less trouble,
but they most likely have higher .aca-
demic scores. "I do believe that because
they can ask for solutions to prob-
lems, and ask for or give advice," said
Vanessa. Anderson, a teacher at BHS.
Having a get-together makes the chil-
dren feel that their parents have confi-
dence in them. Without normal family
dinners, the members, do not involve
themselves in wholesome communica-
tion. The family dinner in general has
a beneficial factor because it can shift
some of the negative energy away,
like stress and arguing, from fam-
ily members. Awareness of rou-
tines and schedules can promote
a family's healthy relationship, but
when a family does not get to-
gether, the members got lost in
a sea of appointments and work.


Local Winn-Dixie Faces Its Final Days


by Edith Madera
Rumors flooded the city when the word
spread that Winn-Dixie would be clos-
ing soon. Customers questioned associ-
ates to see if the rumor held any truth. -
On February 28, 2006, Winn-Dixie
Corporation in Jacksonville, Florida an-
nounced the closing of several Winn-Di-
xie's stores in Polk County. "A store needs
to be profitable in order to succeed. The
closing of this Winn-Dixie store is going
to enhance, the community and the city
for the reopening of new and improved
Winn-Dixie stores," said E.J. Johnson,
Store Manager of the Bartow Winn-Dixie.


Most of the associates have chosen
to relocate to Lakeland, Lake Wales.
and Dundee. "Not everybody will be
transferring, but thank the Lord, this
is an answer to some of our associates
who fear not having a job," said Brit-
tany Cribbs, an associate at Winn-Dixie.
The final date has yet to be announced, but
Bartow's Winn-Dixie store has begun its
liquidation sale on certain items like beer.
wine, and greeting cards. "t's a shame
that Bartow will be losing its Winn-Dixie
store. It's the only store that sells good
shrimp and steamed crab legs in the city."

Prom Extravaganza Fills the Air


by Holly Marple
Theoretically, after an all day spend-

credit card receipt. His eyes grew big-

leave him completely broke? He had
not even paid the electric bill. Her father

could not even make that much working an
eight hour shift everyday for three months.
"Oh yeah, I can definitely see how it
can cost around $1,000. Girls pay a lot
for dresses, nails, hair, fake tans, and then
the guys have to rent their tux. it gets
expensive and that's not includ-
ing the parking fee, tickets, limos,
or gas," said Britany Phipps, a tenth
grade Bartow High School student.
Schools in New York have even can-
celed proms because of the excessive


splurges. Administrators think proms
have become more about who has the
biggest limo rather than just a having fun.
"I don't think they'd cancel prom
at BHS, though. They don't seem to
have a problem with people spend-
ing their own money, and plus they
make a lot off of tickets," said Phipps.
"Prom's blown way out of proportion.
They think that by buying the most ex-
pensive things or by having the best dress
that it'll make the night better," said Ash-
ley Feidler, a tenth grade BHS student.
After-prom activities also wor-
ry officials. They feel prom fu-
els underage drinking, drunk driv-
ing, and other dangerous behavior.
"I don't think that's true though, if peo-
ple just wanted to get drunk or party, then
they could just go to someone's house on
a Friday night and do that," said Feidler.
Has prom become too much of a good
thing? With all the splurges on pre-
prom events, spectators think prom has
turned into a giant popularity contest.
"To an extent prom is over rated. But, I
mean, if it's your senior year then yeah, the
money spent is well worth it," said Phipps.

Chorus on the
by Mary Wyant
Chorus students sat in a bus, anx-
iously awaiting Glori Snow to re-
turn with their results from districts.
Snow slowly mounted the bus, turned
and said to the breathless students,
"Well, who wants to go to Daytona?"
Realizing they paved a clear road
to state, the BHS chorus roared with
cheers and tears. They made straight
superiors with only one excellent.
"I was elated," Snow recalled, "It was so
surreal that we received this opportunity to
singwiththecircumstanceswewereunder."
Mrs. Snow took six weeks out of the sec-
ond semester to recover from'knee surgery
she endured over the holidays. All the
students showed patience and gratitude,
helping their conductor and working with
their noses to the grindstone to excel on
their choral pieces for district competition.

On February 24, the Lakeland Civic Cen-
ter hosted the Polk Regional Science and
Engineering Fair. It teemed with colorful
display boards as students bustled about.
With projects in hand, the multitude of
BHS/IBstudentsmadealastingimpression.
After winning the school-wide fair be-
fore holiday break, twenty five students
progressed to regionals with high hopes.
"I had wanted to make it to state from
the very beginning. It is an honor," said
Caitlyn Sorriano, a freshman in IB.
With the sky as their limit, students did
not fail to come up with unique research
topics. Magnetism fascinated Ashley
Cullins and Daniel Kryger, both of who
based their projects around the science
and will go on to state. Patrick Reddy,
also a state qualifier, impressed judges.

For the contestants, the day
consisted of constant presenting. Judges

Road to State
"I was so ecstatic when Mrs. Snow told
us the news," IB senior David Houston
jubilantly said, "It's my second and last
year to do chorus, and going to state
surely makes my ending year better."
The young musicians concentrate on rais-
ing money for a two-hour bus drive to Day-
tona within the first week of May, which
holds the spot for state competition, and
staying the night over in the beachy city.
BeefO' Brady's helps every third Mon-
day of the month by donating twenty per-
cent of customer receipts to the group,
which pays for quite a generous amount.
"Our main focus is the third piece we're
required to sing," Houston said. "We
will sing a fast German song, which
hardly any of us can understand."
The forty-five singing sensations go
to state competition on May 6. Best
of luck to them in four-part harmony!


made suggestions for improvement for
roughly three hours, as they narrowed
the competition down to the winning
few. "It was definitely nerve-wrack-
ing, especially because you had no idea
when a judge or representative would
pop up and ask you questions. You had to
know your stuff," said freshman Rachel
Bouchillon, "but the judges worked hard
to make you as comfortable as possible.
And any criticism was constructive."
Even with the suspense and pres-
sure, the students managed to turn
the day into a play date. "I made a ton of
friends. After sitting next to people for
three hours with nothing else to do, you
get to know them pretty well. It was awe-
some," saidAsami Wright, an IB freshman.
"I was surprised. They weren't all
nerds. I met some interesting kids," said
Patrick Reddy, another IB freshman.
The day could certainly be called
successful, with thirteen BHS/IB stu-
dents placing and eight advancing to
state. "Overall, I think we did really
well. Everyone should be proud. It was
a great experience in ev-
ery way," said Bouchillon.


Teens Scan In New Responsibility


by Kayla Mason
Most people remember the day they
received their first credit card. Credit
card ownership can be one of the steps
thatteens take when enteringthereal world,
but when reality hits, not all teens
can handle the stress of being in debt.
Many adults or parents of stu-
dents believe that a teen wielding
a credit card equals to a bad idea.
"I think most young adults these days
should put credit cards away for their
future as an adult, and use the cash
they have in their hand for their teen-
age years," said Ron Kirin, a Career Re-
search teacher at Bartow High School.
Most teens strive for the responsibility
their parents never let them have. Now that
a credit card option comes to mind, they
see this as their chance to prove their re-
sponsibility. Some say if teens act respon-
sibly and pay back their dues, the credit
cards problems will decline. "Credit card-


use when monitored by parents, teaches
students how to use credit cards responsi-
bily. This will help them in the future not to
rack up thousands of dollars in debt," said
Matt Cooper, an English teacher at BHS.
Credit cards move into the center of
many problems due to a lack of planning.
Most teens act on instincts. "If a teen sees
a flashy item they'd like to buy, and never
had the money for it before, now they
can pick it up and go, without paying,"
said Itzel Arteaga, a freshman at
BHS. "The truth is you do have
to pay, and all that adds up."
Many wonder if credit cards affect
students high school curriculum, be-
cause most students these days scan their
way through high school. Just remem-
ber that "with great power, comes great
responsibility." If a student can con-
quer their urge to buy the bling,
they can get ready to scan their
cards for a brand new responsibility.


Success in Science Fair










The Yellow Jacket Volume 14, Issue 9 March 2006 Page 4


by Kelsi Hambln
It seems like an abundance of lo-
cal up and coming bands try to
make a CD every single week.
Bands just starting out think that it takes
a lot just to get songs together, but after
lyrics roll off of vocalists' tongues and
out of rockers' guitars, putting the tracks
down seems like the next logical step.
Local bands spring up everywhere. It of-
ten takes a while to get time, money, and
songs together to record. Even bands who
appear ready to record have no money to do
so. "My band has been together for a long
time. Before our drummer quit, we had a
lot of songs together. We should have re-
corded at my house. ButI was afraid that it
would sound bad, like low-quality I mean.
I just want to get out there, get noticed
and spread our message," Joeseph Hobbs,
a junior at Bartow High School, said.
Bands that stay together a long time
agree, it takes a lot of practice. "Some
of the songs that will be on the record
we've had for a while. Personally, I
think you can never practice enough for


an album. You are always your worst
critic," Chet Fox, one of the guitar-
ists from the local band Unkempt, said.
Many aspiring artists think that it takes
a lot of time to record because they think
that drums, guitars and vocals must com-
bine with each other after being recorded
separately. "Drums, vocals and guitars
do not have to be recorded separately,
only if you want. It takes 'a long time to
record and you could stay in for numer-
ous takes until you get it perfect, but
who has the funds for that," Fox said.
Hope exists for students trying to re-
cord an album. "It's not impossible. It
seems like it, but it's not. Once you find
a place to go to record and get all your
lyrics and parts together, you're just a
few hours away. And it is a lot of fun,"
said Kyle. Walker, a junior at BHS.
So, to give hope to students trying their
best, guitarist Fox stated that one can only
go where he wants to go with practice.
One can play shows and one can re-
cord, the possibilities seem endless. Fol-
low-through remains the key to success


Survivor Series Starts Fresh


by Ginny Harris
Deep in the islands of Panama lies
another island, an island of exile. This
island, although mysterious, can be a
great deal of help to any of the cast-
aways on the newest season of Survivor.
Survivor has many new twists and
surprises that many of the other Sur-
vivors have not had before. For ex-
ample, if one tribe loses an Immunity
Challenge or Reward Challenge, the
winning tribe gets to chose who goes
and who stays from the other team.
Cliff Cooley, a Bartow High School
Senior said, "I watched the first season-
of Survivor, but I really did not care for
it. I didn't like the idea of sixteen people
being filmed while living on an island."
CBS.com said, "This new season
of Survivor has more ratings than any

Java Jack's Ho
by Jaimi Ashe
Open mic night at Java Jack's Cof-
fee Shop has hands clapping and
feet stomping the ground in rhythm.
"Music, like many arts, ties a union of
camaraderie between those that perform
it or merely enjoy it. The music is the
magic," said Mitch Lind, partial owner
of Java Jack's. Java Jack's no longer
hosts a deserted stage, rather it provides
guests with live acoustic entertainment.
The live performances start at 6:30 p.m.
on both Mondays and Tuesdays. Anyone
with musical talent, preferably with an
instrument accompaniment, can sign-up.
Persons interested should arrive at Java
Jack's "the night of" at 6:30 p.m. ready
to hit the stage. Artists will perform in
the order of sign up. "The only require-
ment is to try their best, we'll decide if
they should return for a repeat," said
Mitch, originator of mic night. However,


s


other TV reality show on television."
The new season of Survivor marks
the twelfth anniversary of the show and
the producers have had to mix things
up a little. The producers did.a good
job according to some of the viewers.
Lloyd Harris, a JROTC teacher at
BHS said, -"I love to watch Survivor. I
have watched Survivor ever since the
first season and I really like the new
twist to the show how when one of the
castaways have to go to Exile Island.
I also like when they go to Exile Island
and they get to look for the Immunity
Idol that can get them to and through
the final two. I have to say this is one
of my favorite Survivors of all time."
Survivor Panama: Exile Island cer-
tainly has outwitted, outplayed and out-
lasted the other Survivor shows on CBS.

;ts "Mic Night"
some regulations apply; no rap, hip-hop
or any music with indecent lyrics. "It is
primarily an acoustic scene. Music is the
single unexplainable mystery of beat,
tone, and word merging together to form
an idea or expression that allows another
to relate to the performers inner self,"
said Lind. He envisions this connection
for his guests through an open mic night.
Lind and his friends occasionally pro-
vide entertainment for the coffee shop.
"The folks surrounding me on stage have
been in the circle of music for years with
me. It evolves much as any friendship with
a common bond." He described music as
a medium that brings,together like minds
and souls. Lind also said, "If the tune at-
tracts ... then it is a union that allows the
listener to find their own musical path."
Monday and Tuesdays will provide a
great opportunity for gathering and relish-
ing the art of music over a cup of coffee.
