VISUALLY-IMPAIRED
VOTERS have a new option
this year in Polk County. Audio
balloting allows someone who
is blind or has vision problems
to vote in privacy, rather than
having someone read the ballot
and mark it for him. Jeff
Thornburg of WWBF Radio
tested the device during a
media briefing at the Polk
County Elections Office.
Thornburg listens to the choic-
es on earphones, then punches
in his selection on a keypad.
The voice on the machine offers
the voter the option of changing
his mind or correcting a mis-
S take before his ballot is final-
ized. The machine's screen (at

for privacy. Photos by Peggy

Hearing on City Tax


Rate Is Tuesday Night


A public hearing on the Bartow
city commission's plan to keep the
property tax rate at the same
level as last year 4.5 mills -
S will be held Thesday night at 6:30
at city hall.
The commiission is meeting one
day later than usual because of
today's Ldbor Day holiday.
The 4,5-mill tax levy' is $4.50
; per $10,000 of taxable property
value. For a home on the tax roll
at $125,000. with $25,000 home-
stead exeinption, the tax would be
$450.' For a $125,000 piece of
commercial or rental property.
which qoes not qualify for home-
stead exemption, the tax would be
$562.50.
While the tax millage is
unchanged from last year. it is
defined under state law as a tax
S. increase because it would bring in
12.07 percent more revenue than
it did last year. That increase is
due to new construction and the


rising value of existing proper-
ties.
The projected revenue for the
2006-07 fiscal year is $2,788,960,
compared to $2,434,349 in the
current fiscal year.
The commission also will hold
a public hearing on the proposed
city budget.
The commission will meet for a
work session at 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday, and will reconvene at
6:30 for its regular work session.

to raise the salaries of city com-
missioners.

Wilkinson Charged With


DUI, But Tests Are Clear


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Polk County Commissioner
Randy Wilkinson doesn't believe
there was a conspiracy to "get"
him, but he does find his arrest
"Saturday for driving under the
influence a bit strange.
Up for reelection to his District
2 seat. Wilkinson spent all day
Friday working on his campaign,
ending up in jail early Saturday
after Lakeland police stopped him
at 3:38 a.m. on Lake Parker
Avenue.
A blood-alcohol test was nega-
tive, as ws a toxicology screening
for drugs on Sunday at Bartow
Regional Medical Center.
Wilkinson's day began at The
Polk County Democrat where he
spent two or three hours working
on a campaign ad. He then went
to a Kiwanis Club candidate
debate in Lakeland, worked on
his campaign financial state-
ments and banking, and in the
evening made a couple of cam-
paign stops, at Lakeland's First
Friday event and a football game.
He returned to First Friday,
where school board candidate
Ricky Shirah offered to help him
put up some campaign signs.
Shirah had a larger vehicle to
carry the 10-foot signs, and a
post-hole digger. Bill Landes. an
active Democrat from Haines
City, told Wilkinson he had some
sites for the signs, Wilkinson


said.
After driving to Mulberry to
pick up the signs, Wilkinson and
Shirah headed for the Four
Corners area of the county, up to
the Lake County line, Wilkinson
said, then came hack down
through Haines City and Dundee.
putting up 15 or so large signs
along the way. They quit about
2:30 in the morning, he said.
They had gotten drenched
from a couple of downpours, so
Shira'h gave Wilkinson one of his
campaign T-shirts to wear, but his
pants were still wet, he said.
Wilkinson came back to
Lakeland and stopped at
Walgreen's, at the corner of
Massachusetts Avenue and
Memorial Boulevard, to buy sev-
eral cartons of water to take to an
anti-drug walk around Lake
Hollingsworth later Saturday
morning.
He said he noticed an off-duty
Lakeland police officer in the
store. That was Officer Latina
Montgomery. who said Wilkinson
was staggering in the store, and
that he had a wet mark on his
pants that she thought was urine,
according to the LPD's probable
cause affidavit.
She called police and reported
that he was getting in a vehicle
and might be impaired. Officer
.Dennis Masser saw Wilkinson
pull his Toyota Prius out of the
parking lot onto Massachusetts
Avenue and followed him west on


East Memorial Boulevard, the
affidavit said. The officer also
reported that the car "drifted
within its lane and then turned to
travel north on North Lake
Parker Avenue, crossing the diag-
onal yellow roadway markings on
N. Lake Parker Ave. just north of
the intersection denoting a turn
lane for traffic turning left" into
the parking lot at the Church at
the Mall.
Wilkinson said he had no idea
why he was being pulled over
when he saw the bright lights in
his rearview mirror.
Officer Masser said
Wilkinson's eyes were "bloodshot
and watery" and his speech was
"slow and slurred." Wilkinson
told the officer he had not been
drinking, "but based on my obser-
vations of his person and his dri-
ving pattern I had developed rea-
sonable suspicion to believe he
may be impaired." Masser said in
the affidavit. He said Wilkinson
"performed poorly" on the
Standardized Field Sobriety Tests
and the two alternate tests, finger
to nose and Rombert balance.
Wilkinson was arrested for
DUI and taken to Lakeland Police
Department. His Breathalyzer
test showed 0.00 for alcohol. He
was asked to take a urine test
and agreed, but the results won't
he back for possibly two months.

esday Lighting Strikes

In Serrano BHS Fire Alarm


Trial
Opening statements in' the
Nelson Serriano murder trial are
planned for'Tuesday morning at
9:30 in the main courtroom of the
Polk County'Courthouse.
A panel of 12 jurors and four
alternates was seated last, week.
The trial is expected to take a
month.
4 Serrano is accused of killing
four people execution-style at
Erie Manufacturing in Bartow on
Dec. 3, 1997. The victims were
George E. Gonsalves, 69, co-
owner of the company; Frank
Dosso, 35, company manager;
George Patisso, Jr., 26, .an
employee; and his wife, Diane
Patisso, 26, a prosecutor for the
State Attoirney's Office, all of
Winter Haven.


SAs it there weren't enough
chaos at Bartow High School.last
week with the condemnation of
the football stadium on Thursday
morning one day before the
first home game of the regular
'football season lightning hit
the fire alarm system early
Friday afternoon, setting offa 30-
minute cacophony throughout the
campus.
The strike came at 1 p.m.,
;shortly before a pep rally at
which Homecoming candidates
were to be introduced.
Because of the fail-safe sys-
tems built into the fire alarm,
including a battery back-up,
school officials were unable to
shut it off, Principal Ronald
Pritchard said.
The alarm moved from station
to station, sounding in first one


classroom wing, then another.
"It was just weird," Pritchard
said. .
Classrooms were not evacuat-
ed, but school officials checked
each zone ti be sure there was no
fire.
."Teachers were still able to
teach, believe it or not." but some
altered their planned lessons in
order to cope with the racket,
Pritchard said.
The company that maintains
the alarm system was called in,
and worked into the evening to
get it fixed, he said.
Technicians bypassed the con-
trol panel that was affected by
the lightning strike and rewired
the system to undamaged panels
to make the alarm system func-
tional again.

Get Your Yard Ready For Fall


As fall approaches, homeown-
ers and green industry profes-
sionals take steps .to prepare
landscapes for the winter.
Leaves are swept away for
composting or disposal, perenni-
als are cut back, trees and
shrubs are pruned, hedges are
trimmed, and pesticides are ap-
plied in anticipation of next
year's growing season.
For professional arborists and
landscapers, fall and early win-
ter are an effective time to use
pesticides, a broad term that in-
cludes products that kill insect
pests and also kill weeds (herbi-
cides).
Insect pests
Many people don't have to use
pesticides at all," says Peter Ger-
stenberger, senior advisor for
safety, standards and compli-
ance for the Tree Care Industry
Association. "Professionals may
be able to solve landscape prob-
lems without pesticides by choos-
ing non-chemical alternatives,
such as sanitation procedures
and selecting shrubs and orna-
mental trees that are less sus-
ceptible to diseases and insects.
"For example, an infestation
last year may only require all
the old plant material be cut
out," notes Gerstenberger. "Of-
ten, cultural practices (pruning,
raking leaves, etc.) will go a long
way toward solving pest prob-
lems."
For homeowners who decide
to use pesticides, th4 Tree Care
Industry Association offers these
suggestions:
Identify the pest first. There
is no use in applying a pesticide
that won't address your pest
problem.
Don't be tempted to use ag-
ricultural chemicals. They aren't
designed for use by homeowners.
A small miscalculation in the
mixing of a small batch could re-
sult in drastic overdosing.
Buy the least toxic chemi-
cal. Most chemicals available to
homeowners use the signal
words "caution," "warning," or
"danger" on their labels. Try to
avoid those with the "warning"
and "danger" labels, as they are
more hazardous.
Never mix herbicides with
other kinds of pesticides, and
never use the same equipment to
spray herbicides and other pesti-
cides. You could unintentionally
kill the plants you are trying to
protect.
Don't mix or store pesticides
in food containers, and don't
measure pesticides with the
measuring cups and spoons you
use in the kitchen. Always store
pesticides in the original con-
tainer with the label intact.
The best choice may be to con-
sult a professional who can diag-
nose pest problems and recom-
mend chemical or non-chemical


alternatives.
A beautiful lawn, shrub or
tree isn't worth the trade-off if
pesticides are not being used
properly.
Herbicides
Fall is a good time to inspect
walkways, driveways and patios
for those annoying trapped
seeds. Despite drought and fre-
quent sweeping, some seeds from
weeds, grasses and trees will
have germinated, lining joints
with unsightly green.
Other seeds simply lie in wait
until the spring. This new
growth must be stopped before
the growing season arrives and
those small cracks become gap-
ing holes filled with vegetation.
Herbicides are the most cost-
effective way of eliminating un-
wanted weeds, but homeowners
need to be careful when using
herbicides.
When they are used improp-
erly, they can just as easily kill
your valuable mature trees and
shrubs as sprouting weeds. Only
products approved for use on
non-crop areas should be consid-
ered. Users should read the
product label to ensure proper
application methods.
"Herbicides should not be ap-
plied on or near desirable trees,"
cautions Gerstenberger, "or on
areas where their roots may ex-
tend or in locations where the
herbicide may be washed or
move into contact with their
roots.
"Even-properly applied chemi-
cal applications may be affected
by rainfall. Some herbicides can


be washed off paved surfaces or
soak into the ground through the
cracked joints the very place
with the greatest concentration
of fine tree roots."
If you are thinking about us-
ing herbicides, hire professional
arborists, They will choose the
correct type of herbicide for the
job.
Find a Professional
A professional arborist can as-
sess your landscape and work'
with you to determine the best
way to preserve and protect your
valuable landscape.
Contact the Tree Care Indus-
try Association (TCIA), a 68-year
old public and professional re-
source on trees and arboricul-
ture.
It has more than 2,000 mem-
ber companies who recognize
stringent safety and perform-
ance standards and who are re-
quired to carry liability insur-
ance. TCIA has the nation's only
accreditation program that helps
consumers find tree care compa-'
nies that have been inspected
and accredited based on: adher-
ence to industry standards for
quality and safety; maintenance
of trained, professional staff; and
dedication to ethics and quality
in business practices.
An easy way to find a tree
care service provider in your
area is to use the "Locate Your
Local TCIA Member Companies"
program. You can use this serv-
ice by calling 1-800-733-2622 or
by doing a Zip Code search on

Wilkinson Explains" rIIaa,'ii


(Continued from Page 1)

Wilkinson was taken to Polk
County jail and bailed out by his
parents later Saturday morning.
He told The Democrat his wife
was home with their two daugh-
ters, one of whom was sick. He
was wearing his T-shirt inside
out, but that was on purpose, he
said. It was the campaign shirt
that Shirah had loaned him and
Wilkinson didn't want to appear
to be publicly endorsing Shirah.
Saturday afternoon, wearing a
coat and tie, he held a press con-
ference, telling reporters "I've
never used drugs in my life." He
also said that his wife sometimes
says when he's tired he sounds a
little bit inebriated. 'That's just
the way I am."
In an interview this morning,
Wilkinson admitted he rounded
the 'corner" t'a Lake P~iakei' to"
enter the subdivision heree hisi
parents live. He.planned to sleep
there instead of driving home to
Bartow since it was so late.
The whole affair has been
"very disturbing for my parents,"
he said.
He believes the officer keyed
in on the way his eyes reacted to
having a light shined into 'them.
The flutter indicated impair-
ment, Wilkinson said, but it was
lack of sleep, not intoxication, he
added. Wilkinson said he refused
to sign the ticket charging him
with DUI.
Nobody "seemed to want to
believe me." Wilkinson explained
that his pants were still wet from
the rain, which made sitting on


the "cold, hard slab" in jail a
chilly experience.
On Sunday afternoon,
Wilkinson went to Bartow
Regional Medical Center to have
his own drug test done. Drug
tests are not as time sensitive as
an alcohol test, he said. The blood
and urine tests, conducted by Dr.
Miguel Diaz, were negative for
amphetamines, barbiturates,
benzo, cannabinoids, cocaine,
methadone, opiates, tricyclics
and methamphetamines. A tiny
amount of ethanol alcohol was
found, but that can come from
foods or non-alcoholic beverages.
Wilkinson was back on the
campaign trail Sunday, taking
part in a candidate introduction
at the Church at the Mall on
Sunday.
His arrest wasn't a conspiracy,
he said, but he does think there's
a concerted effort to "get'" him.
It's "more like improve jazz than a
concerted -symphony. If you go
against axes and lots of govern-
ment you get people taking shots
at you from inside the system."
Some people "would like to get
me out" of office, he said. "There's
more peer pressure in politics
than in high school."
His phone "has been ringing
off the hook" with people express-
ing support, including from some
Democrats and all kinds of peo-
ple who think he's being "rail-
roaded."
Wilkinson faces Betty Hill in
the Republican primary Tuesday;
two Democrats also are running
for his seat, 'Russell "Rusty"
Boedicker and Robert Connors.

University of Florida scien-
tists have delivered a gene
through an eggshell to give sight
to a type of chicken normally
born blind.
The finding, reported in the
online journal Public Library of
Science-Medicine, proves in prin-
ciple that a similar treatment
W 64 can be developed for an incur-
f able form of childhood blindness.
"We were able to restore func-
4 tion to the photoreceptor cells in

Center for Vision Research and
the UF Genetics Institute.
"I thought I saw signs that
the chick was responding visu-
ally to the environment, but I
didn't want to believe it. Scien-
tists always doubt what they see
- it's intrinsic to how we oper-
ate. So I did this simple little
test, drawing little dots on a
piece of paper.
"The chick, which was stand-
ing on the table, came over to
the paper and started pecking at
all of them. It was so exciting."
Later, more precise tests
showed that of the seven treated
chickens, five displayed near-
normal visual behavior. Meas-
urement of electrical activity in
the retinas of the same five ani-
mals showed they responded to
light. In comparison, tests on
three untreated chickens showed
no meaningful responses.
"This is an interesting gene-
transfer technique that appears
to restore function to light-sensi-
tive cells in'the retina," said Dr.
Paul A. Sieving, director of the
National Eye Institute of the Na-
tional Institutes of ,Health,
which partially funded the
study. "An approach such as this
could lead eventually to a vision-
restoring therapy for children
who suffer from blinding retinal
diseases." .
Like people, chickens possess
color vision and function best in
daylight. The predominant pho-
toreceptor, cell type in the
chicken retina, the cone cell, is
the same cell type that is essen-
tial for normal human vision.
To develop the treatment, UF
scientists; constructed a virus
able to infect photoreceptors, de-
livering a normal copy of the
GC1 gene to these cells. Using a
very fine glass needle, they in-
jected the viral vector into-the
developing nervous system of a
chicken 'embryo through a tiny
hole in the eggshell. The shell
was resealed and the egg was in-
cubated to hatching to produce a
live chick.
"The process sounds straight-
forward but it really isn't," Sem-
ple-Rowland said. "It took quite
a long time to build the vector,
develop 'the injection procedure
and figure out how to hatch the


eggs. By doing the injection early
during development, we actually
treat the cells before they be-
come photoreceptors."
Infants with LCA1 would re-
ceive an injection of the gene
transfer agents directly into the
eyeball during the first couple of
years of life, bypassing embry-
onic treatment. That's impor-
tant, researchers say, because a
diagnosis of LCA1 is often not
made until months after a child
is born.
"There are only a few clues
that an infant may.have this dis-
ease," Semple-Rowland said. "Of-
ten parents will-notice that their
child doesn't seem to be smiling
at or looking at faces. Children
may also poke or rub their eyes,
behaviors clinically known as
oculo-digital signs that may pro-
duce sensations of sight."
Work remains to refine the vi-
ral delivery system that trans-
fers the healthy genes to the
photoreceptor cells. In addition,
solutions have to be found to
make the treatment long-lasting
- scientists have restored sight
and slowed degeneration, but the
retinal cells. still degenerate.
But Semple-Rowland thinks
the time necessary to turn these
research results into a treatment
for patients will be a fraction of
the 20 years that have gone into
discovering the genetic defect
and developing a therapy for it.
"We can do amazing things in
animal models," Semple-Row-
land said, "but this work can't be
done quickly. That's the hardest
thing knowing there are peo-
ple who need these treatments
now. But we work as fast as we
can. You'll see the first treat-
ments for some of these genetic
eye diseases soon, especially af-
ter the groundwork for an ap-
proved therapy is laid and the
therapy works."

How About This:


Humble Journalists


Journalists are not generally known for
their humility.
We hope that "arrogant" is not applied
as frequently to us as it is to many in our
field especially network broadcasters -
but "humble" is not often used to describe
practitioners of our craft.
Last week, -our staff was truly humbled
by the community response to the 75th
anniversary of the founding of The
Democrat. We reached that milestone on
Monday, Aug. 28; our first issue was pub-
lished on Aug. 28, 1931.
We celebrated this milestone with a 32-
page section tracing the history of The
Democrat nd its companion publication,
The Fort Meade Leader, and the four gen-
erations of the family who have owned
and managed The Democrat from its
inception.
The response of advertisers who placed
congratulatory messages in the section
exceeded our projection by nearly 50 per-
cent. Other friends sent congratulatory let-
ters, cards, and e-mail messages.
On Thursday morning, plants and floral
arrangements began arriving, and by early
afternoon, we could have established our
own indoor rainforest.
Attendance at our reception and open
house Thursday afternoon an event
which came off on schedule when Tropical
Storm Ernesto thoughtfully bypassed
Central Florida and was well up the state
by Thursday afternoon also exceeded
our expectations. We had figured on 100 to
150 visitors, and had to send a staff mem-
ber for more plates when our supply of
200 ran out. (Fortunately, the. caterer pre- .
pared enough food for the entire crowd.)
Instead of a guest book, visitors signed
the large white mat around a photo of our
newly-repainted building and the land-
scaped "oasis" where our parking lot used
to be.


It's a great keepsake, and we will dis-
play it proudly.
In preparation for the event, our staff
volunteered to come to the office for an all-
day Saturday "clean-up party" (the words
are arguably an oxymoron) and got the
interior looking better than it has at any
time since we moved in back in 1964.
We made an eight-page demonstration
press run during the open house to show
off our four-color printing unit. Seven of
the eight pages were historic front pages,
ranging from our first issue in 1931 to our
coverage of the Main Street fire in 2005.
The front page was filled with color pho-
tographs taken during our brief program,
at which we raised for the first time the
American flag on the new flagpole in front
of the building. The turnaround time from
event to press run was 30 to 45 minutes
(our staff was really a little too busy to
check the time) and people who watched
the press run had the opportunity to see
their own pictures appear in print.
It was an exciting and humbling
experience for our entire staff.
To all who took part in any way in our
anniversary celebration, and to the staff
who made it all possible, our sincere
thanks. S. L. frisbie, IVW

Building Is Still Deteriorating


BARTOW There was a
question raised by two city com-
missioners at the Aug. 7 meeting
after they approved granting the
loans and tax credits by the
Bartow CRA to the owners of the
old Phillips building, "How soon.
will work be started on repairs to
this building?"
To date nothing has been done
and the situation grows worse by
the day. After looking at the east
wall of the building yesterday, if
something is not done "post
haste" they won't have to worry
about hbw to stabilize the corer
or for that matter the entire east
wall.
Cracks are now appearing in
the northeast corner of the build-


ing and the cracks in the middle
of the wall are growing. It
appears the whole east wall is
beginning to slowly sink into the
ground along its length. If this
wall fails it probably will pull
most of the building down with
it.
This is not the result of a hole
being dug at the corner of the
street. A soils engineer and struc-
tural engineer need to test
around the foundation of the
building, particularly along the
east wall, to determine the
integrity of the foundation.
A total failure of the east wall
is the responsibility of the build-
ing owners for not acting quickly
on stabilizing the northeast cor-


ner of the building months ago.
They should have done the pru-
dent thing and used common
sense, instead, of thinking like
lawyers, and moved a contractor
in to stabilize and secure the cor-
ner as soon as it was apparent the
northeast corner crack was
expanding.
The city needs to look at
investing in an engineering study
of the foundation of the building
or file suit for protection of liabil-
ity for failure of the east wall
before the wall collapses and the
owners sue for the entire cost of
the building.

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

It's All In How Your Mind Is Set


Until a few days ago, few of us
had ever heard of Beloit,
Wisconsin, let alone an educa-
tional institution called Beloit
College.
But Beloit College has cap-
tured the imagination of your
more diligent Internet searchers
with its Mindset List. The school
has been developing these lists
since the Class of 2002 entered
the school, but it seems that it
was the Class of 2010 list that has
captured the nation's imagina-
tion.
The term Mindset List, inci-
dentally,, is a registered trade-
mark, so if you're reading this
column (obviously you're read-
ing this column, right?) it's prob-
ably safe not to say the word out
loud. Think of it a the M**ds*t
L**t, which has a faintly sugges-
tive look to it.
Anyway, the M**ds*t L**t is a
compilation of 75 phenomena
that define this year's freshman
class, the young people who will
graduate in 2010 if they do a little
better than the national average
and take less than five years to
earn a baccalaureate degree.
The Number 1 item on the
M**ds*t L**t is that during their
lifetime, the Soviet Union has
never existed "and therefore is
about as scary as the Student
Union."
From this, I guess we can pret-
ty well assume that "Duck and
Cover" is, at best, the name of a
popular off-campus watering
hole. (No, I don't know if there is
one by that name, but if not, there
should be. It would also be a neat
name for a band.)
Duck' and- Cover, as My


Generation will recall, is the self-
help defense against atomic anni-
hilation. As soon as you saw the
flash of a nuclear weapon, you
ducked under your desk and cov-
ered the back of your neck with
your arms. (Who says I didn't
pay any attention in third grade?)
Today, I think that Duck and
Cover enjoys about as much cred-
ibility for protection from nuclear
weapons as a combination of
iodine and baby oil does for pro-
tection from sunburn. I tried that.
in college one time; the sunburn
is just now beginning to heal.
I remember the friend who rec-
ommended it; we are still friends,
but I wouldn't buy a thousand
shares of oil well stock on his
advice.
The M**ds*t L**t goes on to
Number 75: for today's freshman
'class, professional athletes have
always been allowed to compete
in the Olympics. Back when I was
young, slathering myself with
baby oil and iodine, Olympians
had to be technically amateurs.
For about as long as I can
remember, Olympians have been
amateurs in the same sense that
basketball and soccer are non-
contact sports, but we all kept a
straight face when we said that's
the way it was.
While I lack the imagination of
Beloit College to come up with a
list of 75 such things, I have long
mused at a few terms that must
puzzle today youngsters.
We still ask our children to
"roll up" the windows, especially
when the air conditioning is on
(and isn't it always?). How long
has it been since you drove a car
with a window crank to "roll up"


the window?
And we still talk about "dial-
ing" a phone number. Dialing?
Today we "press" our phone
numbers: "1" for English, "2" for
Spanish, and "3" if that was too
complicated and you need to
hear those choices again.
We still speak of the radio
"dial" and the television "dial."
Those dials are somewhere out
there in the garbage dump with
dial telephones. And like phones,
we punch digits on a clicker, as
the TV remote is commonly
known, and push little switches
with plus-signs and minus-signs
to either "search" or "scan" the
car radio. For my part, I still
haven't learned which is which.
Fortunately, I have a wife and
several children who drive my
van from time to time, and I just
leave the radio wherever they set
it.
And how many of today's
kids, if we used the term "The Big
Three," would know we were
talking about either automobile
manufacturers or television net-
works?
When I learned what the game
of football was about, it was easy
to identify the players.
There was a quarterback who
stood a fourth of the way back
behind the center, two halfbacks
who stood halfway between the
quarterback and .the other guy,
who was called the fullback.
Quarter.. half ... full. It was a
pretty simple spatial relationship.
Today we have Weak Side
Middle Wing Backs.
And that's just on the punt
return team.

BARTOW .- After the whirl-
wind events of the past two days, I
want to say an enormous "Thank
You" to everyone who helped to
make the potentially disastrous sta-
dium conditions at Bartow High
turn into a positive event that drew
a community together in a wonder-
ful show of support for our stu-
dents and staff.
First and foremost, a huge
thanks to Lake Region High School.
Principal Joel McGuire and his
staff, Athletic Director Bill Bullock,
Jerri Gable, Larry and Wade; you
made us feel welcome and put your
entire facility at our disposal.
To Don West and the Lake
Region band, thank you; you had to
get ready for your own perfor-
mance Friday, but you took the
time to meet with our band people,
to make sure they had the means to
do their job in the stands, on the
field, and in the concession stand.
And to our own band parents,
many of whom took time off from
your own jobs to move supplies
and equipment all day Friday,
thank you.
To Dr. Gail McKinzie, Bob
Williams, Terry Collins, Don
Bridges, Dwight Marsh and the
staff at the district office, thank you.


You were a great support on
Thursday and Friday, and will be in
the weeks and months to come as
we deal with the real issue of the
stadium.
To our students and staff, thank
you. The only response we received
when you were told about the sta-
dium was "What can we do to
help." None of you put your own
concerns ahead of the concerns of
the entire school and those who
were affected by this event. Our
pre-Homecoming activities were
made even more chaotic by light-
ning setting off the fire alarms, tor-
rential downpours at class change,
pep assemblies, and king and
queen campaigning; then the news
about the stadium was thrown in
on top. You all kept your cool and
just kept on doing what you do best
- teaching and learning.
Thank you, once again, to the
great City of Bartow employees. Joe
DeLegge, Bill Pickard, Barba'ra
Newell, the police department, fire
department, and many .other city
employees who came by to offer
their assistance. I can always count
on you to pitch in when there's a
need. I never even have to ask -
you're just there.
Thank you to the great people


who live and work in Bartow. You
turned out in a great show of sip-
port for our students and staff who
work so hard day in and day out to
provide an exciting Friday night for
you. Sadly, the outcome of the
game wasn't what we all had
hoped for, but you all came, and
you stayed to the end. You are a
great community and I am proud to
be a part of it.
As we continue to deal with this
issue, we at Bartow High School
ask that you continue to show your
support for our students and staff.
There are many rumors and a
whole lot of speculation going
around, but we will await the
reports of the engineering firm that'
is inspecting the stadium before
any decisions are made.
We don't know right now what
the outcome will be, but please be
assured that whatever the final
decision is, it will be made in the
best interests of safety for Bartow
High, our students, staff, and com-
munity. Traditions, like stadiums,
are built, and are not set in stone.
We will take this in stride and con-
tinue on, because we are "The
Home of Champions."

This flu season, sentinel physi-
cians within the community can
help protect the public by report-
ing the total number of patient
visits each week for flu-like ill-
ness to the Centers of Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC).
By testing some of their 'a-
tients for influenza, these physi-
cians assist in designing.the for-
mula for next year's flu shot. :j
"All throughout the year nid
most importantly during, the flu
season (October through rmid-
May), we need a dedicated group
of adult and pediatric physicians
and their staff to serve our com-
munity by acting as sentinel
physicians," says Polk County
Health Department Director Dr.
Daniel O. Haight.
Due to the unpredictable: ia-


ture of the flu, surveillance data
is important in identifying an
outbreak in the early stages
.where measures can be taken to
provide the most effective means
to protect the public.

ment recognized local physicians

Obese Babies May Have Lower IQ


University of Florida re-
searchers have discovered a link
between morbid obesity in tod-
dlers and lower IQ scores, cogni-
tive delays and brain lesions
similar to those seen in Alz-
heimer's disease patients, a new
study shows.
Although the cause of these
cognitive impairments is still un-
known, UF researchers suspect
that the metabolic disturbances
obesity causes could be taking a
toll on young brains, which are
still developing and not fully pro-
tected, they write in an article
published in the Journal of Pedi-
atrics this month.
"It's well-known that obesity
is associated with a number of
other medical problems, such as
diabetes, hypertension and ele-
vated cholesterol," said Dr. Dan-
iel J. Driscoll, a UF professor of
molecular genetics and microbi-
ology in the College of Medicine
and the lead author of the study.
"Now, we're postulating that
early-onset morbid obesity and
these metabolic, biochemical
problems can also lead to cogni-
tive impairment."
Researchers compared 18 chil-
dren and adults with early-onset
morbid obesity, which means
they weighed at least 150 per-
cent of their ideal body weight
before they were 4, with 19 chil-
dren and adults with Prader-
Willi syndrome, and with 24 of
their normal-weight siblings.
Researchers chose lean sib-
lings as a control group "because
they share a socioeconomic
group and genetic background,"
Driscoll said.
The links between cognitive
impairments and Prader-Willi
syndrome, a genetic disorder
that causes people to eat nonstop
and become morbidly obese at a
very youngage if not supervised,
are well-established. But re-
searchers were surprised to find
that children and adults who
had become obese as toddlers for
no known genetic reason fared
almost as poorly on IQ and
achievement tests as Prader-
Willi patients.
Prader-Willi patients had an
average IQ of 63 and patients
with early-onset morbid obesity
had an average of 78. The con-


trol group of siblings had an av-
erage IQ of 106, which falls
within the range of what is con-
sidered normal intelligence.
"It was surprising to find that
they had an average IQ score of
78, whereas their control sib-
lings were 106," Driscoll said.
"We feel this may be another
complication of obesity that may
not be reversible, so it's very im-
portant to watch what children
eat even from a very young age.
It's not just setting them up for
problems later on, it could affect
their learning potential now."
While performing head MRI
scans of subjects, researchers
also discovered white-matter le-
sions on the brains of many of
the Prader-Willi and early-onset
morbidly obese patients. White-
matter lesions are typically
found on the brains of adults
who have developed Alzheimer's
disease or in children with un-
treated phenylketonuria, the re-
searchers wrote.
These lesions could be affect-
ing food-seeking centers of the
brain, causing the children to
feel hungrier. But they are most
likely a result of metabolic
changes that damage the young,
developing brain, Driscoll said.
More studies are needed to
understand what is causing,
these cognitive impairments,
said Dr. Merlin Butler, a profes-
sor of pediatrics at the Univer-
sity of Missouri and chief of ge-
netics and molecular medicine at
Children's Mercy Hospital and
Clinics.
"This could be a really signifi-
cant observation," Butler said.
"It's an interesting concept. It's a
whole new area of investigation."
The findings are preliminary
and additional studies are;
planned, Driscoll said. Dr. Jenni-
fer Miller, a UF assistant profes-
sor of pediatric endocrinology
and the first author of the study,
and other researchers from UF,
All Children's Hospital in St. Pe-
tersburg, and Baylor College of
Medicine also took part in the re-
search.
Although there is no known
genetic cause for early-onset
morbid obesity, Driscoll said
there are likely genetic and hor-
monal factors at play that re-


searchers have yet to discover,
particularly since these children
are becoming obese at a time
when their parents still control
what they eat.
The researchers studied sev-
eral sets of fraternal twins
where one twin was lean and the
other morbidly obese, yet their
parents reported that each ate
the same amount of food. In one
case, the obese child actually ate
less, Driscoll said.
Driscoll is also careful to point
out that adults or children who
become obese later in childhood
are not at-risk for these cogni-
tive impairments because their
brains are sufficiently developed
to fend off damage from obesity.
"We're all mindful that this is
an obese society," he said. "We
all need to be more careful with
respect to what we eat, but in
particular, that's very important
for children under 4."

dance with Sections 120.659 and 120.57, Flor-
ida Statues (F.S.), and Chapter 28-106, Florida

Bartow 'High School's 2006

bad taste out of their mouths
from last year's disappointing
finish as the Class 4A, District 9

Most teams would be ex

record and a runner-up position
in the district; however, this
team is loaded with talent and
will settle for nothing less thar
the district title in 2006.

The Kathleen Red Devils
made it four straight victories
over Bartow, Friday night, with
a 33-6 defeat of the Yellow Jack-
ets.
This key district game was
moved from Bartow Memorial
Stadium to the field at Lake Re-
gioh High School, because of un-
safe conditions on the home
Stands.
Red Devil quarterback Domi-
nique Davis powered Kathleen's
offensive engine, completing 13
of 22 passes for 217 yards and
four touchdown passes, with no
interceptions. Along with Haines
City, the Red Devils are tied for
first place in Class 3A- District
10.
Bartow opened the scoring on
their first possession, an 11-play,
84-yard drive, in just under four
minutes. The drive was com-
pleted with a seven-yard pass
from Devarious Cook to Alfre-
drick Jones.
Bartow's touchdown was the
first time since the 2002 meeting
that the Yellow Jackets scored
first.
The Yellow Jacket "'bend,
don't break" defense, kept Kath-
leen off the scoreboard for the
first quarter, extending Bartow's
shutout to nine quarters, includ-


ing the Kickoff Classic.
Bartow recovered a Red Devil
fumble in the end zone, stopping
Kathleen's opening possession.
Later Kathleen turned the ball
over on downs.
Bartow finally gave up their
first points of the year on a
seven-play, 77-yard drive, and
finished by an 18-yard pass from
Davis to Desmond Coleman.
Two Bartow turnovers late in
the first half, resulted in points
for the Red De\ils, in the final
minute of the second quarter. A.
Cook interception, and then a
fumble, allowed Kathleen to
scored twice in the final minute
of the first half. Touchdown
passes of 34 and 41 yards gave
the Red Devils a 14-point
halftime lead.
Kathleen controlled much of
the second half. scoring two
touchdowns, while their defense
caused three more Bartow turn-
overs.
Bartow's most serious scoring
threat of the second half, came
late-in the fourth quarter, a 70-
yard drive that was stopped at
the Red Devil 10-yard line on
downs.
Bartow and Lake Wales are
tied in the district-standings
with one loss.
Bartow will try to rebound as
they take on the Auburndale


Bloodhounds in the Homecoming
game Friday night, scheduled to
be played at Lake Region High
School.
Kathleen will host George
Jenkins.

Highlands Cassidy sued the City of Bartow for denying their proposal to build a 565 single family homes and 235 town
homes unit on E.F. Griffin Road. The Lawsuit characterized the commission's vote as a "rogue denial" based on
"unreasonable influence of a few non-expert residents..."based upon...rural folklore." Highlands Cassidy related entities made more than
20 contributions totaling over $5000 to Betty Hill's campaign. Randy has voted against more than five Fighland Cassidy developments.
