Karla Wright Makes Judicial History



In 10th Circuit Court


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

In a ceremony that was part
judicial pomp and circumstance,
part camp meeting, part civil
rights rally, and part family
reunion, Karla Foreman Wright
wvas installed Thursday after-
noon as the first, black circuit
judge in the history of the 10th
Judicial Circuit.
Surrounded by a standing-
room-only crowd of family and
friends in Courtroom 1. the large
ceremonial courtroom on the
ground floor of the court house,
Judge Wright was administered
the oath of office by Florida
Supreme Court Justice Peggy A.
Quince, the first black woman to
serve on the state's highest court
and a probable future chief jus-
tice.
The 10th Circuit embraces
Polk, Highlands and Hardee
Counties, and now has 26 active
circuit judges. In addition there
are eight county judges in Polk
and one each in Highlands and
Hardee.
Most of them, as well as
Justice Quince, several retired
judges, and one member of the
Second District Court of Appeal,
attended the ceremony.
Judge Wright, who was
appointed a county judge six
years ago and was elected to the
post two years later, was elevated


to the circuit bench by Gov. Jeb
Bush. She was one of two black
county court judges in Polk
County.
Darvl D. Parks, a Tallahassee
lawyer, told Judge Wright. "You
are the right person for this
appointment ... because you're
qualified."
Parks said that he and other
black lawyers have been encour-
aging Bush to appoint more
blacks to the bench, and the gov-
ernor has done so. In his tenure,
Bush has more than doubled the
number of blacks serving as cir-
cuit judges.
"For some of us, this is the
only thing he agrees with us on,"
Parks quipped.
"Truth and justice are better
when the fill community partici-
pates in the process," he said to
Judge Wright. "It's a big day -
not just for you; for all of us."
After Justice Quince adminis-
tered the oath of office to Judge
Wright, the audience responded
with a standing ovation.
Judge Wright was assisted
into her robe by her husband, Dr.
Victor Wright, and her sons, Jahi
K. Wright and Dr. Ameer A.
Wright.
Willie E. Gary, a Stuart
lawyer, told the audience:
"This is history in the making.
"I know that this is the right
judge in the right place at the
right time.
"She makes things happen;


she gets things done."
He recalled that as a law stu-
dent, Mrs. Wright had applied to
him for a summer job as a law
clerk. When he didn't respond
quickly, she called him to pursue
the job.
"I said, 'Just a minute, you've
got the job. I just need to know
what I'm going to have to pay
you,'" he recalled.
Turning serious, he said, "Dr.
King must be looking down ...
and smiling. Your life is about not
catching amnesia when it comes
to justice.
"You have not lost the common
touch."
In her response. Judge Wright
said:
"This is a community celebra-
tion, for which I thank God and I
thank you."
To Justice Quince, she said:
"When I grow up. I want to be
just like you."
She displayed a pink "magic
wand" that was given to her by
an unnamed mentor, with
instructions to wave it in front of
litigants when nothing else
would bring them to agreement.
"So far, it hasn't worked," she
said.
She recalled that when she
was invested as a county judge.
she promised to be "the people's
judge."
To James R. "Rusty" Franklin,
who presented her a gavel on


behalf of the Polk County Trial
Lawyers Assn., she said, "I
promise not to use the gavel for
battery on any lawyers. I don't
Promise not to think about it."
She recalled that she was
recruited to come to Polk County
by Public Defender Marion
Moorman 21 years ago.
She commended "the atmos-
phere of collegiality among our
circuit judges," saying that they
"have wit and temperament."
Of her investiture, she said,
"This occasion marks a place in
history.
"I stand on soil nurtured by
the blood of injustice.
"Equal justice for all ... is a
clear expectation of all people."
In closing remarks, Chief
Circuit Judge Ronald Herring
said:
"This is an historical occasion
that we will all remember."
Among others taking part in
the program were Mario J.
Cabrera, who presented the
judge with a Bible from the
Lakeland Bar Assn.; County
Judge Keith Spoto, who present-
ed her with a plaque from her fel-
low Polk County judges; and
Kenneth C. Glover, who present-
ed her a vase from the Virgil D.
Hawkins Bar Assn..
Glover said that Mrs. Wright
had long worked with that group
"to diversify thejudiciary."

Police Contract


Ratification


Ton


The union contract between
the City of Bartow and members
1 of the Bartow police department
in the ranks of lieutenant and
below is scheduled for ratification
by the city commission tonight.
The contract with the West
S Central Florida Police
Benevolent Assn. is for two years,
and is retroactive to last Oct. 1.
The contract calls for a three
percent pay raise, retroactive to
Jan. 1, with step increases for
some officers. Officers will get
three per cent or the step
increase, whichever is higher.
The contract calls for payment
of overtime only for hours
worked. Holidays, sick time and
vacation can no longer be used to
create overtime payment.
The language on arbitration,
which was a major stumbling
block, was left unchanged. The
city had wanted the arbitrator's
authority limited to determining
if there was just cause for disci-
pline, with no authority to change
S the discipline.
The commission will meet for a
work session at 5:30 this after-
noon, and will reconvene for its
regular business meeting at 6:30.
James F. Clements will be
sworn in as a new commissioner,
taking the place of Andy Laurent,
who did not seek another term.
Pat Huff, who won a new tern
without opposition, also will take


eight

the oath of office.
The newly-constituted com-
mission will then elect a mayor
and a vice-mayor for the coming
year.
Public hearings are scheduled
on three related ordinances to
annex and zone for residential
use a 1.2-acre parcel of land on
Lyle Parkway. Action on the ordi-
nances was postponed in April
because a suit was filed challeng-
ing ownership of the land.
A public hearing also is sched-
uled on an ordinance zoning a 15-
acre parcel of land on E.F. Griffin
Road R-1-B single family resi-
dential'. The Strawbridge Group
is the developer.
Other items on the agenda:
Discussion of an appoint-
ment to the code enforcement
board.
Proclamations designating
May 6 to 12 as Nurses Week, May
15 as Police Officers Memorial
Day, May 14 to 20 as Police Week,
April 30 to May 6 as Municipal
Clerks Week, and May as Ci\ility
Month.
Recognition of Laurent for
his service on the commission for
the past three years, and of Leo
Longworth for his service as
mayor for the past two years.
Appointment of an alternate
member to the board of adjust-
ment.

Mike Williams Speaker

For Mayor's Breakfast


Mike Williams will be the
speaker at the annual Bartow
Mayor's Prayer Breakfast on
Thursday, May 4, at the Bartow
Civic Center.
Doors open at 6:30 a.m., the
program begins at 7. Tickets are
still available for $6 each.
SWilliams was born the
youngest of five to an inner city
family steeped in crime, drugs,
abuse and poverty. His oldest
brother was killed at 17 on the
streets of Chicago, and another
brother was killed at 17 in
prison. His two sisters turned to
alcohol and drugs, a turn from
which they have never fully
recovered.
At the age of 27, he met his
father for the first and last time.
Williams's mother chose to give
him away in hopes that at least


one of her children could have a
chance at a future. He was adopt-
ed by a Christian couple (whom
had been praying for a child for
more than 12 years), and the fun
was just about to begin.
Williams combines comedy
with truth o!f life, using scripture,
extensively throughout his pre-
sentation. He has been on three
major broadcasting stations,
written several books and has
toured the country sharing his
gift to young and old alike.
His "moving testimony truly
demonstrates the grace of God," a
spokesman said.
Tickets may be purchased at
the Bartow, Chamber, City of
Bartow, Citrus and Chemical
Bank and Community National
Bank. For more information, call
533-7125.


Forty percent of Polk County's
"bed tax" collected on hotel,
motel, and short term rental
stays will be committed to creat-
ing three major sports venues
under action approved by the
county commission.
Commitment of the fourth and
fifth cents of the tourist tax came
at the recommendation of the
Tourist Development Council and
the Polk County Sports
Marketing Committee.
The fourth cent will be used in
a joint effort with the city of
Winter Haven, the state of
Florida, and' Major League
Baseball to build a new spring
training baseball stadium in the
Winter Haven area.
The commission committed up
to $8 million to that project. The
fourth cent produces $800,000 to
$900,000 per year in revenues,
Commission Chm. Jack Myers
said.
The fourth cent has.been com-
mitted to a variety of sports and


tourist venues over the years,
including the Lakeland Center.
The fifth cent will be used for
major sports facilities in
Auburndale and Lakeland.
Myers acknowledged that
when the fifth cent was imposed
to help get Cypress Gardens back
into operation, most of the coun-
ty's hotel and motel operators
opposed it, saying that it would
drive away their customers.
Instead, Myers said, occupancy
rates are up substantially, the
Cypress Gardens commitment
has been paid off ahead of sched-
ule, and hoteliers and moteliers
now support the fifth cent.
The fifth cent will be commit-
ted to building a major soccer
complex in Auburndale and a
20,000-seat high school
football/soccer stadium in
Lakeland.
The soccer complex, to be built
on a 125-acre site, will become
headquarters for the Florida
Youth Soccer Assn., Myers said.


The organization has eight full-
time staff members.
The facility. should bring more
than 20 statewide soccer events a
year to Auburndale, Myers said.
He said the impact of the soc-
cer complex would be comparable
to that of a baseball spring train-
ing facility.
When not being used for
statewide events, the soccer fields
will be available for use by Polk
County teams, Commissioner
Paul Senft said.
Auburndale already has three
soccer fields on the property, and
the. county will build seven or
eight more. The land can be seen
from the Polk Parkway, and is
near the planned site of the
University of South Florida's Polk
County campus.
The city of Auburndale will be
responsible for maintaining the
complex, and is negotiating
details with the soccer associa-
tion, Myers said.
The 20,000-seat football stadi-


um in Lakeland will be a joint
project with the school 'board and
the city of .Lakeland. It will be
used by three Lakeland high
schools. Maintenance of that
facility will be the responsibility
of the city of Lakeland.
Although primarily intended
for football and soccer, the stadi-
um will be available for other
sportsas well.
The tourist tax is intended "to
put heads in beds" by drawing
tourists to Polk County. In addi-
tion to hotels and motels, opera-
tors of short-term rental
dwellings, located primarily in
northeast Polk County, collect the
tax.
Myers said he had committed
to sunsettingg" the fifth cent tax"
after the Cypress Gardens fund-
. ing commitment was met because
of tourist industry opposition, but
that hotel and motel operators
now support the tax as a way to
bring more tourists to Polk
County.

New Director Coming to

Travis Vo-Tech. School


Mary Summers, health sci-
ences instructor at Travis Voca-
tional Technical School, an-
nounced April 25 at the Bartow
Lions Club luncheon meeting
that the school will soon have a
new director, Kenneth Lloyd,
coming from Naples.
In pointing out the important
role Travis plays in Polk County,
the speaker said that only 30
percent of high school students
ever graduate from colleges.
Travis offers training in auto
mechanics, nursing, electrical
and air conditioning installation
and repair, plumbing, service
technology, hair styling, and op-
tometry, among others.
Ms. Summers said that their
graduates often wind up earning
more money than college gradu-
ates, and of their 1,000 students,
some now command a starting


wage as high as $11 per hour.
Travis also is involved in eye
testing for children. Last year,
the school manufactured be-
tween 500 and 600 eyeglasses for
children at a cost of $10 to $12
per pair, Ms. Summers said. In
2005, the school was able to re-
cruit six opticians to assist in
testing student vision.
Ms. Summers introduced a
17-year-old student of the school,
Lindsey Bushe, who, through
her training at Travis, qualified
for a position at Eye Express.
She hopes to become an optician.
The speaker was introduced
by Bill Naberhaus.

sented Past President Eric Hunt

Kevin Chioma Making Putnam's

Progress In New Facility Caseworker


By JANICE JARED
Staff Writer

Diann Chioma, the wife of
Kevin Chioma, has sent an up-
date on his progress.
Chioma, 49, was seriously in-
jured in Cocoa Beach at the
home of his parents, Nov. 25,
2005, when he fell from a 20-foot
ladder while holding a chain
saw, leaving him a quadriplegic.
The Fort Meade couple, along
with their children, Garry and
i Shawna, and a cousin, Brittany
I Ezell, expressed their gratitude
to residents of Fort Meade for
their support since the accident.
Kevin is now in Sarasota at
Ridge Lake Hospital, just off-of
Highway 175 at the Bee Ridge
exit, 6150 Edgelake Drive, Sara-
sota, FL 34241.
"Kevin spent four months at
Holmes Regional Medical Center
in Melbourne, in the halo and
one month in a neck brace,
which was removed on April 20,"
Mrs. Chioma said.
As of March 23, he was trans-
ferred to the Sarasota facility for-
-:vent weaning, physical therapy
and occupational therapy. Since
Being at the new facility he has
Shad surgery on two bedsores. one
successful, the other not. The
longest time he has spent off the
vent is 21 hours, Mrs. Chioma
said. He has made progress but
there is still a way to go.
He.is able to have visitors
anytime and can communicate
through a speaking valve. Even
though he sounds a little hoarse,
he sounds great, his wife said.
She said his spirits and person-
ality is back.
"He makes us laugh at his
silly jokes. 'We do our best to
make things as normal as possi-
ble," she added.'


She and Shawna stay in the
room with Kevin. They have a
DVD player and radio and they
are able to rent movies and lis-
ten to music.
Chioma's room has pictures of
graduation, the kids growing up.
friends and family and the fam-
ily dog, Belle. She said one of the
pictures of their friend Norma
Vaughn with Belle creates an in-
teresting story. With the angle of
Chioma's bed, the light from the
window casts a shadow and he
says he sees the face of Jesus.
Mrs. Chioma said her hus-
band cries when he looks at it
because he knows they are all
being watched over and taken

The Polk County Democrat 3


76th Anniversary Nuggets

The Polk Counly Democrat

r he largest single investment this newspaper has ever
Made was the purchase of a four-color printing unit
in 2003. It is a dedicated four-color unit, meaning
that we can use it for that purpose, or we can let it sit and
gather dust. It has no purpose other than producing color
photographs and advertisements. We have used it in every
issue since it was installed, with the exception of those
which were printed at another newspaper plant when we
had major equipment problems. The press will print full
color, on the front and back pages of a section, and black
plus one color on the other side of the same sheet. Color
photographs are created by breaking down a color image
(usually captured by a digital camera) into four separations:
cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow, and black. The four col-
ors are printed, one on top of the other, to produce the infi-
nite array of colors in the' spectrum. It's a'bit like kinder-
garten art class: to get green, you print yellow over blue; to
get orange, you print yellow over red; to get purple, you
print red over blue. Two or three decades ago, it took sever-
al days and cost several hundred dollars to have a specialty
firm produce color separations. Today, by the use of the
Photoshop computer program, the process takes minutes,
and costs pennies. (This is the last in the series of "nuggets"
pertaining to photographic reproduction.) S. L.Frisbe,

Judge Wright: A Proud, If


Unremarkable, Milestone


With each passing year, there are fewer
milestones to be achieved, fewer "firsts"
to be recognized.
Such a milestone was reached last week
with the investiture of Karla Foreman
Wright as the' first black circuit judge in
the 10th Judicial Circuit.
It hasn't been that many years since the'
first woman circuit judge was chosen. For
what it's worth, Karla Wright will get two
asterisks in the history of the circuit: the
first black circuit judge and the first black
female circuit judge.
Both achievements are commendable,
but neither is remarkable. Judge Wright:
has enjoyed a reputation for.both compe-
tence and temperament on the county
court bench for the past six years. In plain
talk, the job never went to her head.
We are confident she will serve'on the
circuit bench with the same dignity.
At her investiture ceremony, attended
by a standing-room-only crowd of family,
friends, and professional associates, she
acknowledged the milestone that her
appointment represented.
But she also displayed a pink "magic
wand" that an unnamed mentor had
given her, with instructions to wave it in
front of litigants when nothing else.
would resolve their differences.
"So far it hasn't worked," she lament-


When she was appointed a county:
judge nearly six years ago, the first black
female to hold that position, we com-
mented:
"Although her appointment rates a
footnote in the history of jurisprudence in
Polk County, her selection is unremark-
able. "
"The real significance of her appoint-
ment is that Polk County has gained
another good judge.
"And that, more than the novelty of her
race and gender, is the true importance of
her appointment."
We can add nothing to those words
now that she has ascended to one of the
most prestigious positions in jurispru-
dence, a judge of the circuit court.

'Racism' Charge Inappropriate'


THINKING OUT LOUD / ByS. L. FRISBIE, IV

Gray Water: The Last Frontier


TFrom time to time,. I have
mused over what is left to be
invented.
Compared to life in our par-
ents' generation, or at the tinAe of
the Civil War, or the American
Revolution, or the discovery of
America, or the Renaissance, or
the Pleistocene Age, what's left to
improve our way of life?
At-the top of my very short list
is travel. : .
You can flV to the nation's cap-
ital in a couple of hours, or across
the country in five or six. But the
drive to the airport, including
time to park your car, check your
bags, go through security, and all
the other pre-flight stuff takes as
long as a flight of 1,000 miles.
I don't know what the answer
will be, but in my lifetime we
have seen jets become the com-
mon mode of air travel and rock-
ets go into earth orbit with what
used to be routine regularity.
Son-e day, I believe, inventors
will conquer short journeys just
a s dramatically y.
Of cire pressing importance,
and I ve got to believe far greater


'B


simplicity, is the recapture arind
reuse of "gray water." That's the
water that comes from our bath
tubs, our basins, our washing
machines, and perhaps our dish-
washers.
Right now, it goes into the
sewer system to be treated with
the really vucky stuff that comes
from you know where.
It is treated with the same
degree of thoroughness as you
know what, and only then is it
used to water golf courses, piped
off to create steam in power
plants, or even discharged into
rivers.
There's something wrong with
this picture.
There ought to be a simple,
inexpensive way to recapture this
relatively benign "used water" at
our homes and use it to irrigate
our lawns, our landscaping, and
our citrus trees. Okay, there
might be a little shaving cream or
a few shreds of broccoli left in the
water, but somehow I think my
yard would prefer that to the
parching sun.
And I can't imagine that it


BARTOW I was saddened
and disappointed to read the
reported comment by C.R.A.
Director Stephens at the April'
24 Community Redevelopment
Agency meeting. To refer to the
possible denial of funds for the
"Juneteenth Celebration" as
"pure racism" would seem to
me to be blatantly inflammato-


ry.
If I remember correctly, a
number of requests for funding
from the C.R.A. were denied by
this same board of directors
when the budget was being pre-
pared. I alsoremember several
of the directors stating at that
time that funding.for communi-
ty festivals should be discontin-


IAva o


At a time when racial and
ethnic diversity is both the will
of the populace and' the policy
of local government, I believe.
that the use of language such as
that used by Director Stephens
is totally inappropriate.

Impact Fee Is To High


11*0 (M1J Va M


MULBERRY I find it inter-
esting that Frank O'Reilly, a
financial consultant, and
Margaret Lofton, an educator,
do not understand that impact
fees are not paid by the builder,
but are added to the price a
home buyer pays for the fin-
ished product.
There is also a question of the
oath of office each elected mem-
ber of the school board took
upon entering same in which
they swore to uphold the
Constitution of the state of
Florida. What message might
this send to our school children,
and other residents of the coun-
ty?


The impact fee calculated by
the school board's own consul-
tant ($2,838.26) appears to be a
result of proper methodology,
and is defensible, as outlined in
the state statute. The amount of
$5,757.74 was requested to' be
added by the school board for
the sole purpose of class size
reduction (clearly against the
constitutional amendment).
The reduction of $5,757.74 in
the price of a new home just
might permit school .teachers,
school bus drivers, school board
employees, policemen, firemen,
sheriff's department personnel,
employees of' the county, and
many others in the local work


force to possibly qualify for a
home mortgage and enjoy the
American dream, that of home
ownership.
It appears ironic that a gov-
ernment, entity, (the school
board) that is so desperate for
funds, would agree to indemni-
fy the board of county commis-
sioners for any and all legal
costs incurred as a result of a
challenge.
CARLTON D. HODGES
(Editor's note: The Polk County
Builders Assn. has filed a lawsuit
challenging the tax to which the
writer refers. The writer is a devel-
oper.))

would take a very sophisticated
filtration system to remove even
those inoffensive intruders, giv-
ing us a filtered product not far
from drinking water purity.
After all, didn't our forefathers
and foremothers and foregrand-
fathers, and foregrandmothers
capture water coming off the roof
in rain barrels and cisterns?
In the final analysis, I think
almost all of us are environmen-
talists to one extent or another:
some of us just don't want to
admit it. There are few among us
who want to clear cut the planet
and pave it solid with parking
lots and shopping malls.
And even those who do would
like to do just that would like to
have a little drinking water left.
Somewhere out there, some-
body can figure out a simple back
yard recycling system to keep our
own household gray water out of
the sewage treatment plant, and
use it to water our lawns.
If it's you, don't thank me; just
give me 10 percent of the money
you make off the invention. We'll
both become billionaires.

SApril 27.
Steve Hunter, another of the
owners, introduced himself and
said he appreciated opening the
new company in Fort Meade.
He also expressed his grati-
tude to the City of Fort Meade,
for the cooperation and help with
set-up and permitting given to
them by Janice Thompson and
Frankie Curlee.
"Southwest Florida Water
Management District require-
ments are also being met,"
Hunter said.
Pearson explained the "envi-
ronmentally-friendly; completely
recyclable," process that takes


place in the manufacture of PVC
lattice and PVC fence profiles.
He said the basic procedure of
extrusion is blending polyvynal-
chloride, a very low grade of non-
toxic chloride which won't blow
up, but just melts, with a sun
screen and other products and
placing this into a huge hopper.
The hopper falls into an ex-
truder that looks like a cannon
barrel, in which a huge screw
turns slowly.
The cannon barrel, is heated
'up to 360 degrees which melts
the product to the consistency of
taffy. The product is then forced
into various profile dies for the
shape desired.
It is then water cooled to re-
tain the shape. A puller carries
the product through the process
to a saw, where it is cut, then


OWNERS OF Extruders Unlimited Jim Pearson (left) and Steve
Hunter said they like the small town atmosphere of Fort Meade, but
hope their new business on a 12-acre site off County Line Road 630
just west of Sand Mountain Road, will grow along with the city. -

placed on a pallet for delivery to
the customer.
In the case of lattice, which
Pearson said is the company's
bread and butter, there is an as-"
sembling aspect.
"We will have employees lined
Uip for the assembly of the lat-
tice," he said.
The plant. will run night and
day because it is not economi-
cally feasible to turn it off, he
said.
The operation is no threat to
local fence companies.
"We sell our product to fabri-
catbrs. Our competitors are the
giants *in the Northeastern
states, Ohio and Pennsylvania,
or west of the Mississippi," Pear-
son explained.
Although the company has
been in operation only one year,
and has opted to produce only
three different profiles, they
have already landed a national
account.
"Our part is to build a good
team and develop the ground
floor crew. We currently have 12
employees. When we begin mov-
ing our operation from Lakeland'
to Fort Meade in May, after full
set-up by July, or late summer,
we will be adding perhaps five or
six more employees.
"We have been excited with
the response we have gotten
from the Fort Meade and Bartow
area from people who want to be
a part of our team. Although I
realize we have a lot more grow-
ing to do, we will need to double
the team we have in eight
months and continue from
there," he said.
Pearson compared the team-
building process to the world-
wide fundraisers, when multiple"
entertaining events were taking
place under various conductors,
but the conductors were not:
seen. '
"After we build our team of
hometown folks like ourselves,
-we intend to let them run the
show, and we will jointhem here
and there to do our part,"' he
said.
Pearson told the story of
David and Goliath and said he
and Steve know how to compete
against the giants in this indus-
try; however they must be in
their element to do so.
.- -Just as David could not fight
the giant with the wrong equip-
ment or in the wrong setting, he
said they could not fight the gi-
ants in the extrusion industry
unless they are comfortable in
their environment, with home-
town folks like themselves, like
the folks in Fort Meade.

Polk Works To
Hold Youth Job
Fair Tuesday
Polk Works wants to make
sure summer job seekers aren't
left out in the cold.
To help Polk County youth
find jobs for summer Polk Works
will sponsor a Youth Job Fair on
Tuesday, May 2, from 3 to 7 p.m.
at the Lakeland Center.
Jobseekers age 16 and up will
have the opportunity to talk to
and apply for jobs with dozens of
employers, including Publix,
Lowe's and Walt Disney World.
At the same time, free semi-
nars will help young jobseekers
learn interviewing and other job-
search skills,
Participants will have a
chance to do a mock interview..
"Hundreds of young people
are available and eager to work,"
said Nancy Thompson, Polk
Works executive director. "Hav-
ing a summer job not only gives
a young person valuable work
experience but also helps local
employers meet their labor
needs."
According to Census 2000,
Polk County has nearly 50,000
residents between the ages of 15
to 24, slightly more than 12 per-
cent of the county's total popula-
tion.


Chinoiserie Antiques

Chinoiserie Moving To Fort Meade


It could be a while perhaps
six to eight months, according to
owner Virginia Cagle, but Chi-
noiserie Jewelry, Gifts. Ar-
tiques, a business which has op-
erated at 125 South Central Ave-
nue in Bartow for the last six
years, is relocating to downtown
Fort Meade.
Mrs. Cagle has purchased the
storefront building at 110 West
Broadway, the former Farm and'
Home building located next to:
Roberts Barber Shop.
She said the move will enable
her to double, perhaps triple the
size of her shop, plus she will
own the facility as opposed to
renting. A long-term dream
would be to perhaps one day con-
vert the upstairs to an apart-
ment.
"I live in Lakeland and have
five grandchildren. It would be
Shard to leave them, but they
could come visit if I decided to do,
Thatt" she added. "It would all
depend on construction cost. My
first priority is to get the busi-
ness going in this area.",
Virginia Cagle has been mar-
ried for 40 years to Stanley Ca-
gle who is employed at Disney
Celebration City in home man-
agement.


The couple have two children.
Their son lives in Lakeland with
his wife and four daughters. The
couple are pregnant with the Ca-
gles' first grandson. Bethany Ca-
gle, lives in Lakeland and has a
daughter. Bethany Cagle is a ra-
dio announcer with WUSF FM
89.7 and is featured each day
from 1-4 p.m.
Mrs. Cagle said the relocation
from Bartow to Fort Meade could
mean she may not have as many
drop-ins, but she plans to adver-
tise.
"I have my regular clientele
who have promised to come. I'
will continue" to advertise
through the Junior League Line
of Lakeland. I tell clients who
fuss about it that I will be only
10 minutes away," she said.
Mrs. Cagle, who worked in
the medical field for more than
20 years at Watson Clinic, said
the:reason she started the an-,
tique shop was because she loves
beautiful thihgs..
"There are so many beautiful
things in this world. I sell a lot
to young women under 30. I can'
give them a good antique that
they will love because of its
beauty,, but it:will increase in
value over 'their lifetime, and


when their children inherit it, it
will add beauty and increase in
value for them," she said.
"I am not selling something
that will devalue, something
that is a throwaway. Only by
purchasing antiques is it possi-
ble to buy the craftsmanship,
and many of the woods which
are no longer sold or would be
far too expensive. I feel' very
good about offering this service,"
she said.
"I have a large source of books
and information about antiques,
but it is impossible to know it
all. Know what I like and I buy
what I like," Mrs. Cagle said. "If
my taste is riot a customer's
taste, I am able to recommend by
referral.
"The more antique stores you
can get in a city, the better it is,
because coming to your area is
then a destination, perhaps to
spend all day, shopping for an-
tiques, and then have a tea
house lunch.
"We need a tea house in Fort
Meade. I have already had a
lady from Junior League tell me
she could bring a group down to
Fort Meade, but wanted to know
if there was a tea house," she
said.

As springtime thoughts begin
to drift to summer plans, Mid-
Florida Federal Credit Union
gears up to encourage summer
readings 'a top priority this
year.
Beginning in late April and
early'May, the Central-Florida-
based financial institution will
initiate its "Gift of Reading" pro-
gram which will mobilize more
than 100 volunteers to more,
than 100 schools in five central
Florida counties to read to
12,000 kindergarten students.
Plus, at the conclusion of the
reading, each student will re-
ceive -their own hard-back copy
of the book.
Providing volunteers and
books to all kindergarten classes
in Polk, Highlands. Hardee,
Okeechobee and DeSoto counties
as well as the Poinciana area of
Osceola County began with the
daunting task of book selection.
The Polk County School

the attention of the kindergarten
students and would be a book
the children would want to read
again and again.
The book "Sakes Alive! A Cat-

selected and the 12,000 copies
are ready and waiting for deliv-
ery to some very eager kinder-
garteners.

Lady Jackets Win 10-Inning.

Struggle Against Raiders, 1-0


By MARK KING
The price of admission was six
bucks!
And worth every penny.
It was the Florida High
School Athletic Association's
Class 4A Region 3 softball semi-
final contest between the River-
dale Raiders and the Bartow
High School Lady Jackets played
in front of a packed house last
Friday night at Lady Jacket Sta-
dium.
The game featured every-
thing. Great pitching. Great hit-
ting. Tremendous defensive
plays. And a couple of hot-tem-
pered coaches who argued each
and every call, while throwing
insults into the stands.
And they were both from the
Raiders!
It was all part of the playoff
atmosphere abounding at One
Bug Place where the Lady Jack-
ets defeated the Raiders by the
smallest of margins, 1-0, in one
of the longest games played at
BHS, 10 innings, and almost two
hours and 20 minutes.
For a time, it seemed like the
softball game might last as long
as the.Relay For Life going on
next door at the football sta-
dium, but the Bugs finally put
together enough offense to bring
in a run in the bottom of the
10th.
Lead-off batter Whitney Little
got things going for Bartow with
a walk. After kicking in her af-
terburners and stealing second,
Rachael Giddens bunted her way
to first, then stole second base,
to put Bugs on the bags at sec-
ond and third with no outs.
As the Raider pitcher, the last
person you wanted to see stroll-
ing into the batter's box at this
particular moment would be the
player leading the entire county
in batting averages and runs
batted in.
Imagine the cold shivers run-
ning down the pitcher's spine
when she heard the announce-
ment, "Next up for the Bugs, it's
The Big One,' Kara Rutenbar!"
So Kara, who has made so
many clutch hits in so many
games this year, did what Kara
does. With two strikes on her,
she crushed a shot over the head
of the right fielder to score Little
from third and win the game for
her team.
There were heroes aplenty in
this playoff game. Mallory But-
ler made some unbelievable
catches in left field for Bartow,
while Rachael Jackson at first
base made sure catches of every-
thing that came her way,
stretching, reaching, and some-

times digging to bring the ball
intoithe webbing of her glove. :'
Then there was the Jackets'
pitcher. Candace Howell- once
again proved she has what it
takes to pitch in the big games.
In a marathon manner, Howell
hurled 11 strikeouts over 10 in-
nings and gave up just four hits,
several of which were little dinks
that never left the infield.
Jackets' batters also were do-
ing their job. The Bugs led off
the game with a stand-up triple
off the bat of Little. But Little
was stranded at third, an un-
usual event in the life of these
Bugs.
"Whitney led off the game
with a triple and we stranded
her there. That's not what we
do," said Head Coach Glenn Ru-
tenbar.
In the first three innings, Bar-
tow stranded runners in scoring
position each time. While the
coaching staff was frustrated
with the lack of run production,
they knew that the bats were
working.
The Bugs got eight hits from
Little (3B), Rutenbar (2B, 1B,
RBI) Butler, Jackson, Giddens,
Courtney Latham, and Erin
Foley.
With the win, Bartow now
stands at 28-1 and will host the


Golden Eagles of Naples in the
Regional Final on Tuesday at
7:30 p.m. Naples, who lost to the
Bugs earlier in the season 10-0,
is confident they can pull off an
upset against the number .1
ranked Bartow.
Naples' pitcher Heidi Schu-
macher was quoted in The News-
Press as saying, "They killed us
last time but we played them in
the beginning of the season. Our
team is jelling now and we're a
better team now. We've stepped
up our hitting and we're playing
flawless defense. We're ready."
Bartow's pitcher knows that
this will be a different Golden
Eagles team than the one she
faced earlier, but it is a chal-
lenge she is eager for. "I look for-
ward to meeting them again,"
Howell said.
It's "The Biggest Show in Bar-
tow" and it's happening at Lady
Jacket Stadium Tuesday night
at 7:30 p.m. Come out early to
see the warm-ups and see what
Paula and Christy are cooking at
the Caf6 de Concession.

game in person, Dennis Clark

Girls Villa Classic Scales


Back Social Activities


Social events have been scaled
back for this year's 44th Youth
Villa Classic, a decision which
organizers hope will increase
participation and decrease costs.
The result is expected to be an
increase in the amount of money
that the benefit golf tournament
raises for the Villa.
The event, founded as the Ar-
mour Open, will take place over
the Memorial Day Weekend,
May 27 through 29, at the Bar-
tow Golf Course.
The biggest change will be the
elimination of the Saturday
night gala at the Bartow Civic
Center, an event which for years
attracted bigger and bigger
name entertainers and higher
costs, while attendance dwin-
dled.
In its place, the "Dreams To
Reality" celebration, previously


held on Friday night, will be
moved to Saturday night, and
held at Peace River Country
Club. Tickets, at $50, may be
purchased at the Chamber of
Commerce. Two bands will pro-
vide entertainment.
The barbecue traditionally
served at the close of the tourna-
ment on Monday has been
moved to Sunday from 2:30 to
7:30 at the country club. Tickets'
are $10, and also may be pur-
chased at the Chamber.
The new social format was de-
cided on by a committee made up
of members of both the initial
and current YVC executive com-
mittee members, Chamber of
Commerce representatives, and
Sheriff Grady Judd.
For more information on the
tournament and social events,
call Linda Holcomb at 533-7125.


.The three-day, 72-hole tour-
nament will be unchanged, with
morning and afternoon rounds
which attract a :number of
scratch golfers and many more
less accomplished golfers.'
In the years since the Cham-
ber of Commerce took over. the
event and transformed it into a
fund raiser, the tournament has
raised $580,000 for the Villa;
Major sponsorsfor the Classic
are Bartow Chevrolet, Bright
House Network, Citrus &
Chemical Bank, Glenn Broom
Insurance, Lilly, O'Toole &
Brown, Mosaic, Polk Power, Pro-
gress Energy, and Semco Con-
struction, Inc.
Patrons for the event still are
being sought. For information on
the patrons program, call Pam
Renew at 534-1591.

Heather Rimes, 27, of Lake-
land won the award this year af-
ter being nominated by Katie
Simpson, her field instructor at
Lakeland Regional Medical Cen-
ter (LRMC).
"Heather is an exemplary stu-
dent with a 3.56. overall grade
point average, she spends many
hours interning for LRMC's
Mental Health and Addictions
program and recently served as
her class representative on
USF's master's of social work
committee," said Penne Wil-
liams, faculty for the social work
graduate program- at USF Lake-
land. "She has a keen ability to
work with others as an advocate
for clients and. a leader among
peers."
In addition to her graduate
studies, Rimes works full-time
as volunteer coordinator and:
public relations director for the
Polk County Guardian Ad Litem
program. Guardian Ad Litem is
the voice for neglected, abused
and abandoned children.
"I recruit for the program and
supervise more than 300 volun-
teers. I also go into the commu-


nity to speak to companies and
'organizations on behalf of
Guardian Ad Litem and the
services we provide children,"
said Rimes.
"Heather's dedication to the
profession is obvious in both her
roles as a student intern at
LRMC and her work in the
Guardian Ad Litem's office in
the circuit court," said Dr. Greg-
ory Paveza, USF Lakeland In-
terim Campus Associate Dean
and Professor of Social Work.
Rimes said her interest in so-'
cial work developed at a young
age when she often counseled
friends through relationship
problems and offered advice to
peers in trouble. Although she
majored in psychology as an un-
dergraduate at Florida Southern
University, Rimes experienced
great academic success in her so-
ciology elective courses.
"I was so much more passion-
ate about the sociology courses.
They just captivated my atten-
tion," said Rimes. When apply-
ing to graduate school, Rimes.
chose the social work program at
USF Lakeland for the opportu-
nity to follow her passion.
Rimes received her award at
the National Association of So-
cial Work luncheon. March 23.
Sponsored by the' Heartland
Unit of the NASW and Lakeland
Regional Medical Center, the
event recognized the accomplish-
ments of Rimes and other prac-
ticing social workers.

Medicare Prescription

Plan Seminar Set


With the Mafy 15 deadline
looming for senior citizens to
sign up for the new Medicare
Part D Prescription Drug Pro-
gram, Rep. Adam H. Putnam (R-
FL 12) urges all beneficiaries to
sign up to realize significant sav-
ings.
."The new prescription drug
program is working and saving
money for America's senior citi-
zens." Putnam, who chairs the
House Republican Policy Com-
mittee, said. "More than 30 mil-
lion people have already enrolled
in the new plan, and many are
seeing real savings."
Putnam also announced that
he will hold a additional Medi-
care Prescription Drug seminars
to assist seniors as they consider
the various prescription drug
plans that are available under
the new Medicare Part D pro-
gram.
Those attending will receive
one-on-one counseling on a first-
come, first-served basis, and at-
tendees are asked to bring a list
of their current prescriptions, in-
cluding dosage strengths and in-
structions.
In the 12th Congressional
District, 69 percent of all Medi-
care beneficiaries currently have
prescription drug coverage.
Florida currently has more
than two million resident seniors
who have this coverage, and
studies show that the average
senior who signs up for the plan
wiLl save more than $1.100 on
their prescription drugs this
year. .
"A number of my constituents
have told me that thanks to the
new program,, for the first time
in their lives, they are able to


take all their prescription medi-"
cations," Putnam said. "Despite
initial difficulties, the program
appears to be achieving the sav-.
ings that Congress intended
when it passed the landmark
legislation in 2003."
SA woman from Fort Meade
who previously had Medicare
but no prescription drug cover-
age said that she had to choose
between groceries or medication
because she-could not afford her
prescriptions.
The new plan has made it pos-
sible for her to get al of her
needed medication and buy the
groceries she needs.
A Lake Wales resident who
was previously on Social Secu-
rity disability had no health in-
surance or prescription drug cov-
erage at all.
Under the plan. the qualifying
period for Medicare ,was waived
and she is now covered for both
health insurance and prescrip-
tion drugs.
The most drastic case is a
Bartow man whose one prescrip-
tion cost $2,782 per month and
had never been able to take his
medication because of the cost.
The monthly cost of his medi-
cation with the plan he chose is
$60.
The seminar %will be held on
Monday. May 8. from 2 to 5 p.m.
at First United Methodist
Church. 72 Lake Morton Drive.
Lakeland.
"If anyone has questions con-
cerning the new prescription
drug plan. call my district office
at 534-3530. and my staff will be
happy to explain the choices that
are available to you," Putnam
said.
