Polk Trims Tenth-Mill


From 2006-07 Tax Rate


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Polk County commissioners
shaved a tenth-of-a-mill off the
county's property tax rate
,Thursday night, 'trimming the
$1.6 billion budget by $2.8 mil-
lion.
The action will reduce the tax
on a'$100,000 piece of commer-
dial orrental property by $10, or
on a $100,000 home that quali-
fies for Florida's $25,000 home-
stead exemption by $7.50.
The proposed budget submit-
'ted .to the commission by the
county staff called for a cut of a
quarter-mill, which equates to
$25 on a $100,000 on property
without homestead exemption, or
$18.75 on a homestead.
A .homestead is a home occu-
pied by the owner, as opposed to
a rented home..
Near the close of a'two-hour
S'public hearing on the tax rate
an'd the budget, Commissioner
Randy Wilkinson moved to
reduce the tax levy by one mill
'from the proposed 8.417 mills.
When that motion failed, he
moved to lower the rate by three-
quarters of a mill, then half a
mill. He got no second.
Commissioner Sam Johnson
then moved to reduce the millage
by a tenth of a mill, cutting the
tax rate to 8.317 mills, and
Wilkinson promptly seconded
Commissioner Paul Senft,
participating by telephone from
his vacation in Colorado, said the
Commission has been working on
the budget for eight months, and
Questioned where cuts would be
,ifmade.
S"A huge amount of the
increase" is for capital improve-
,'.ments in highways and solid

waste disposal, Senft said,
adding:
"I think it's all committed."
Wilkinson said that initial
projections were that the value of
the tax roll would go up 14 per-
cent, and the actual number
turned out to be 26 percent.
"I see us going upwards
toward 30 percent," he added.
Last year, 32 of Florida's 67
counties reduced their tax mill-
age by an average of half-a-mill,
he said.
Senft said most of those coun-
ties have higher tax millages
than Polk.
Johnson said that county-to-
county comparisons are mislead-
ing, because Polk County has
kept its taxes low for years.
Fran McAskill, the county's
director of financial and strategic
planning, said that a reduction of
a tenth of a mill would reduce the
county's revenue by $2,841,090.
The quarter-mill cut already
built-into the budget represented
a reduction of $7.1 million, she
said.
Senft said he could support
the tenth of a mill decrease.
Commissioner Bob English
spoke against the cut.
He recommended that the
millage be adopted as submitted,
and that the commission try to
make annual reductions in the
future.
He said the budget is intended
to close the county's "infrastruc-
ture gap" over the next 10 years,
and that the county's long-range
planning.calls for more' tax cuts.
"I want to reduce taxes, but I
want to do it-in a calculated, well-
managed way," he said. "Let's go
with what the staff recommended
... and incrementally reduce
taxes over'the next 10 years."


Wilkinson said that in the
past, tax revenues have risen by
about five percent a year.
He said it will be difficult to
live with five to eight percent
increases in the future after this
year's 26-percent increase in
assessments.
I On the first vote on Johnson's
motion to cut the tax by another
tenth of a mill, the vote was 4-to-
1 to pass it, with Commission
Chm. Jack Myers joining
Johnson, Wilkinson and Senft in
voting for it, and English voting
against it.
English then asked for a sec-
ond vote on the motion so he
could make it unanimous, and
his colleagues obliged.
English suggested that the
commission ask the Legislature
to pass a law to curb the increas-
es in assessments on non-home-
stead property commercial
property and rental housing.
Johnson said he also would
like to see the Legislature pro-
vide tax relief on non-homestead
property.
"We're just trapping people in
their own homes," Myers said,
because people with "Save Our
Homes" protection, which limits
annual property assessment
increases to three percent, can't
afford to sell their homes and buy
new ones.
When a homeowner sells his
home and buys another one, he
loses the three-perceit annual
cap on assessments.
The proposed tax levy for
2006-07 was a quarter-mill
reduction from the present rate,
going frorn8.627 mills to 8.417
mills. However, under. state law,
the new tax rate was considered

State Stalls Development


Of Homes on Septic Tanks


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
t Publisher
Development of a 172-home
subdivision at Connersville has
been stalled by a state agency's
finding that the development
does not, meet the state's growth
management rules, in part
because' its homes would have
septic tanks.
After postponing action on the
72.5-lcre development from
meeting to meeting for several
weeks, city commissioners voted
on Monday to reschedule a final
vote for their Oct. 2 meeting after
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
informed them of the state's find-
ing.
Wiegers said he believes the
city can persuade the Florida
Dept. of Community Affairs to
change its position on septic
tanks on the basis of a soils
report.
'"t gets to be a little bit com-
plic ted," he told the commission.
Commissioner James F.
Clements asked the location of
the nearest sewer line force main
that might serve the develop-
ment.
Wiegers said the site could be
served from 91 Mine Road, or in
conjunction with a new subdivi-
sion planned on State Road 60 on
the east side of Connersville.
He said he would review the
school board's concerns with the
school district staff.
DCA wants the city to include
sanitary 'sewer service to the
development in its five-year capi-
tal improvements plan, or to
require the developer to pay for
the sewer installation.
The proposed development,
which straddles Gandy Cemetery
Road a short distance north of
State Road 60, "lies within the
city's utility service area for sani-
tary sewer but the city does not
currently have any facilities in
S place to provide service nor is
any service planned as part of
the city's five-year capital
improvements plan," the state
agency's finding said.


It noted that Bartow's devel-
opment code allows septic tanks
"only when municipal sanitary
sewer facilities are unavailable
and when conditions are favor-
able for their use."
The state has concluded that
the kind of soil in the area "ren-
ders this site unfavorable for sep-
tic tank use," the DCA finding
said.
Among other issues raised by
the DCA:
More than half the parcel
''may contain a known groundwa-
ter contamination site."
The city has not shown that
roads are adequate to support
the development.
The school board has deter-
mined that there is insufficient
school capacity to serve the
development.
The plan does not adequate-
ly protect "historical resources."
In the city's response, Wiegers
said:
"It is not economically feasi-
ble at this time for the city to
extend central sewer service to
this area."
The Polk County Health
Dept. "inspects, evaluates and
permits the installation of all
new and repaired septic systems
in the county," and the developer
"will be able to demonstrate that
the site is suitable for septic
tanks."
An environmental analysis
of the site showed "minimal cont-
amination" from above ground
fuel tanks that once serviced
grove equipment on the site.
Additional analysis of traffic
impact has been provided.
Florida law on school con-
currency does not require "ade-
quate school capacity to be in
place" until December 2008, but
Bartow and other cities are work-
ing with the school board "to
incorporate school concurrency at
an earlier date."
As to historically significant
sites, the Gandy homestead "is
not considered significant" and
the Gandy Cemetery will be pro-
tected.


"The designation of this site
for low-density residential devel-
opment does not create a
'leapfrog' development pattern
since there is relatively no other
undeveloped lands which are
available' and suitable for devel-
opment."


Farmers'
Market
Continues
Saturday
Bartow's weekly Farmers'
Market will continue this
Saturday, rain or shine, in down-
town Bartow.
The market is located on
North Central Avenue, on the
east side of the Polk County
Historical Museum. The hours
are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The market is a growers-only
market, and a good place to find
deals on fresh fruit and vegeta-
bles.
Parking in downtown Bartow
is free.


Part of Bartow's downtown will
be sold to the county, if commis-
sioners approve a plan to pur-
chase the Southeast Bank build-
ing for $2 million on Wednesday.
If purchased, members of the
guardian ad litem program for
the county would moveto the
building.
The program represents
abused and neglected children in
the state's family court system.
"'The program needs space
within walking distance to the
courthouse," Polk Director of
Facilities Terry Pittman said. "We
originally looked at leasing the
building, but were able to pur-
chase it at less than the
appraised value."


Bartow's property tax rate for
2006-07 will remain at its present
rate: 4.5 mills.
The 4.5-mill tax levy is $4.50
per $1,000 of taxable property
value. For a home on the tax roll
at $125,000, with $25.000 home-
stead exemption, the tax is $450.
For a $125,000 piece of commer-
cial or rental property, which does
not qualify for homestead exemp-
tion, the tax is $562.50.
The commission unanimously
approved the tax rate after a pub-
lic hearing Tuesday night. The
commission met one day later
than usual because of the Labor
Day holiday.
While the tax millage is
unchanged from the past year, it
is defined under state law as a tax
increase because it will 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 adopted
the tentative city budget for the
coming year: $67,365,587.
Speaking at a public hearing
Gerald Cochran criticized both
the tax levy and the budget.
He said that because develop-


"Over the past six years I have
gone from supervising nine staff
to 52," Cookie Rousos, director of
the Guardian Ad Litem program,
said. "All in the same amount of
space. Additionally, 14 new posi-
tions have been approved by the
legislature."
Mrs. Rousos said she has
moved staff to the county admin-
istration building and some are
telecommuting.
Pittman said he understood
concerns about losing such a
large building downtown, and
said the county attempts to work
with the city of Bartow during
projects like this.
"We are sensitive to the needs
of downtown, and we want to be a


ment is bringing in more taxes,
the commission should lower the
tax millage.
"I think there's a lot of fat in
that budget," he said.
The city's new stormwater util-
ity, created to solve drainage and
flooding problems, is spending too
much money on salaries and too
little on materials with which to
fix problems, he said.
Cochran also said the public
should have been given the oppor-
tunity to vote on the new
stormwater tax.
The commission also:
Heard City Atty. George
Dunlap outline a concept to tight-

en up the city's code enforcement
ordinance.
Heard Cochran suggest that
the city publicize its willingness
to delay the due bill on utilities
bills for Social Security pension-
ers whose checks don't arrive
until after bills are due, and
assert that it is dangerous for city
garbage trucks to back up to ser-
vice homes.
Heard City Mgr. Jospeh J.
DeLegge report that the city's
wastewater department received
a "Good Neighbor Award" from
the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection for its
assistance to other cities after the
2004 hurricanes.
Proclaimed Sept. 16 to 22 as


good neighbor," he said. "But we
have to balance the need for
space, and be able to function for
the children of Polk County."

'Hands Across the Sea'


Provides Unconventional

Cancer Treatment for Kids


The "Hands Across the Sea"
. program of Rotary International
provides "unconventional cancer
treatment" for children around
the world with, life-threatening
cancers.
"Ninety percent are going to
mak e it; we work on the 10 per-
cent)" Ed Mattson told the Bar-
tow Rotary Club. He-. works pri-
marily in Eastern Europe,
Hospital conditions for pediat-
ric oncology are primitive in
many cities, he said; Rotary
Clubs from throughout the world
have donated modern equipment
to raise the level of health care.
Much of the program's work is
done near Chernobyl, where a
major effort is study of birth de-
fects linked to the nuclear melt-
down near that city.
National Guard units from a
number of states assist in trans-
porting medicines and equipment
to the region, he said.

Diversity Luncheon Planned Sept. 27


To reaffirm its commitment to
racial and ethnic equality, Bar-
tow's Community Relations
Committee (CRC) will hold a Di-
versity Luncheon on Sept. 27, at
noon, at the Bartow Civic Center
in conjunction with Race Equal-
ity Week, the week of Sept. 25-
29, 2006.
The week is set aside each
year to spotlight racial and eth-
nic equality and justice issues
that confront America everyday
and success stories in communi-
ties.
"There are daily reminders to
us all of how important this is-
sue still is in America, and that
promoting racial and ethnic
equality and ending racism and
discrimination requires aware-
ness, commitment, and action,"
said C. C. Corbett, chairman of
the CRC. "This is an opportunity
for Bartow to stand up and be
counted in an ongoing effort to
make sure our community fos-


ters racial and ethnic equality
and harmony."
The Diversity Luncheon's
guest speaker is Dr. E. Nathan
Thomas, III, director of diversity
for the University of South Flor-
ida.
For the past 15 years, he has
addressed the importance of stu-
dent development in secondary
and higher education.
This includes the implementa-
tion and evaluation of ethnic-
based mentoring programs, or-
ganizational effectiveness, lead-
ership and community develop-
ment, educational and social eq-
uity, racial identity, psychologi-
cal well-being and sense of be-
longing.
More specifically he has
worked in secondary education
and higher education to address
desegregation in Rockford, Illi-
nois and Pittsburgh, Pennsylva-
nia public schools; the effective-
ness of community collaborations


in the state of Pennsylvania and
Michigan, and their goals to re-
move the educational and eco-
nomic inequities in several coun-
ties; African American and La-
tino college adjustment, grade
point average (GPA), retention,
and graduation in predominately
White institutions and histori-
cally Black colleges and universi-
ties.
Cities and towns throughout
the United States have planned
events for the week of Sept. 25 to
renew their commitment to pro-
moting racial and ethnic equal-
ity.
Tickets for the Diversity
Luncheon are $10 each and may
be purchased at the Greater Bar-
tow Chamber of Commerce or
from any Community Relations
Committee member.
Sponsorships also are still
available.
For more information, call
the Chamber at 533-7125.

We remember, too, with respect and
awe, those who climbed stairs into fire,
risking all, and those who searched the
ruins for survivors, working past their
own strength until all hope was exhausted.
We remember how we in this communi-
.ty braced each other through days of
uncertainty, through the weeks when our
everyday lives and activities seemed never
more beside the point, and yet never more
crucial.
We remember our fear of what would
come next, for we value life and love on
earth, and when they are.lost, we suffer
and we grieve.
Today we remember tenderly those who
were lost. We remember the parents forced
to mourn their children; the children sud-
denly without a parent; the lovers forever
separated.
As we grieve for each innocent life lost,
we cannot evade the truth that what we
commemorate today is more than just the
tragedy of human lives lost. It is the result
of a calculated plan to murder unsuspect-
ing people, innocent people not because
of anything they did or even anything


towards.
Together on this somber day, as we
honor the memory of those lost on Sept. 11,
we think back with sadness, but we look
ahead with hope. Our vulnerability was
exposed, but we responded with a steely
resolve that has made us stronger, richer,
and better.
We will never be the same. But the
Americans we have become will be the
shining example of liberty and democracy
for all the world to see.
America, America ... God shed His
grace on Thee.

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

It Could Only Happen To Randy


'We Will Never


Be The Same'


It could only have happened
to Randy.
And in Polk County, you don't
have to say which Randy.
He's like Diddy, Cher, even
Jeb. Everybody knows who
you're talking about.
Unless you are an off-duty
Lakeland police officer working a.
security job in the wee hours at
an all-night Lakeland pharmacy,
you know who Randy is and
what he looks like.
Randy Wilkinson, of course.
He is to the Polk County com-
mission what Maria was to the
convent before she became nanny
to the Von Trapp family, but with-
out Julie Andrews' singing voice.
As anyone who has the politi-
cal awareness to know that this is
an election year is well aware,
Randy was charged with DUI
about 3 o'clock Saturday morn-
ing, three days before the prima-
ry election. A uniformed, off-duty
Lakeland police officer suspected
he was drunk, and called for an
on-duty officer to stop him as he
drove away from a Lakeland
.pharmacy, as indeed she should
have.
The officer who responded
said that Randy made an improp-
er lane change, which I have not
heard him deny. .
The officer decided that he
was either drunk or high on
drugs, the latter conclusion
reached after shining a flashlight
in his eyes in the middle of the
night.
After his arrest, Randy blew
0.000 in a blood alcohol test. I am


told that under Florida law, a
motorist cannot be given a blood
alcohol test until after an arrest is
made. The police officer who told
me that knows his business, but
that sounds a little to me like hav-
ing to charge someone with mur-
der before being allowed to see if
his fingerprints match the ones
lifted from the murder weapon.
(The same .cop said he doesn't
have much faith in the flashlight
test for drug use.)
Shortly after his release from
jail, Randy arranged for a drug
screen by a physician. That screen
showed no illegal drugs in his
system, as did another drug test
run by law enforcement.
Randy Wilkinson was stone
cold sober and 'completely drug-
free.
The state attorney's office
refused to prosecute, not because
of "insufficient evidence,". as a
Tampa TV station reported, but
because the evidence was unmis-
takable that he was innocent of
anything more than (1) making
an improper lane change and (2)
blinking when a police office
shined a flashlight in his eyes at 3
o'clock in the morning.
Give the state attorney's office
credit for publicly acknowledg-
ing that it was not a weak case; it
ivas no case at all.
A L.akeland police spokesman
said that Randy was "impaired
due to fatigue."
It was 3 o'clock in the morn-
ing he had been putting out cam-
paign signs in the rain, and he
was tired and soaking wet.

I go back a few years earlier
than Pat Sims.
I remember the time when
Bartow had two newspapers: The
Polk County Democrat and The
Polk County Record.
The Democrat was published
once a week and the printing
office was down on North
Broadway before you get to the
railroad. As well as I remember, it
was a weekly and was delivered
free of charge. I hope my

The Record was a daily
in those days. The Polk
County Record was pub-
lished in what was known
in those days as The
Record Building. It was
and still is on the corner of
Central Avenue and
Summerlin Street.
The Democrat was in
the Frisbie family and The
Record in the Gallemore
family. Somewhere along Av
the time line, The
Democrat acquired The
Record.
For a short while, in my
early years, I worked in
The Record printing shop
and then had a delivery
route which took in parts


of Wilson Avenue and East Main
Street.
I also had the opportunity to
do some journalism work in cov-
ering the Summerlin Institute
football games for The Record
during the season. I worked
along with Loyal Frisbie from
The Democrat and Bob Evans
from The Lakeland Ledger. They
were both so patient with me as I
walked the sidelines with them
on Friday nights. We didn't have

press boxes back then.
That gave me a little yearning
for a journalism career. However,
after my service in World War II
in the Navy, the Lord had other
plans for me. I am not sorry at all
that the change was made, but I
still have the interest in journal-
ism.
Happy Anniversary Democrat
and may there be many more.

"Impaired due to fatigue" is an
interesting way of putting it.
Admittedly, Randy Wilkinson,
like broccoli, is an acquired taste.
Some will never acquire it, and
that is fine.
The chances are the Polk
County commission will never
name a building or a park for
him, as it has for several of its dis-
tinguished alumni.
Whether the voters have had
enough of Randy on the county
commission and will replace him
with Robert Connors another
maverick, if a less colorful one -
remains to be seen. Robert and
Randy have more in common
than either would probably care
to admit.
I endorsed both men in their
respective primaries, and at this
point, I haven't the slightest idea
which one I will endorse in the
general election.
As of this writing,: it .is
approaching midnight.
I am stone cold sober, and I
have never taken an illegal drug
in my life. But it's been a long
day, and I will admit openly
and without shame in the words
of the late, great Lewis Grizzard
that I am tired.
I think I can stay within the
correct lane on the drive home,
but I hope nobody shines a flash-
light in my eyes to see if I blink.
No, it probably won't happen
to me, or to you, or to anybody
else that any of us knows.
Except Randy.
As I said at the outset, it could
only happen to Randy.

Florida's 5 million acres of
home and commercial lawns may
need fertilizer, but its water re-
sources don't so University of
Florida researchers have em-
barked on a landmark study to
verify the effectiveness of cur-
rent state lawn-care recommen-
dations.
Funded by the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion, the five-year, $3.5 million
study is UF's largest turfgrass
research project ever, said Lau-
rie Trenholm, an associate pro-
fessor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
and one of the study's principal
investigators. The research fo-
cuses on nitrogen and phospho-
rus, essential ,plant nutrients
that pose significant threats to
Florida's water quality.
"We've known for years how
to produce beautiful turf, but
now we're determining how to do
it with the smallest amount of
fertilizer," said Trenholm, who is
also head of the Florida Urban
Turfgrass Program. "When we're
done, we'll; have proven recom-
mendations that are right for al-
most any landscape situation."
The study is based at three
UF research facilities in
Gainesville, Fort Lauderdale and
near Pensacola and addresses
a variety of grass species, soil
types and growing conditions,
she said.
Current state recommenda-
tions are found in numerous
publications, including the just-
released third edition of "A
Guide to Florida-Friendly Land-
scaping," a handbook for home-
owners published by UF's Flor-
ida Yards, and Neighborhoods
program; a manual for lawn-care
:-professionals, "Florida Green In-
dustries Best'Management Prac-
tices for Protection of Water Re-
sources in Florida;" and the lat-
est edition of "The Florida Lawn
Handbook," edited by Trenholm
and J. Bryan Unruh.
Recommendations also are
available at http://YourFlorida-
Lawn.ifas.ufl.edu and www.solu-
tioisforyourlife.com.
The current recommendations
have been used since about 2000
and were developed \ia collabo-
ration between UF. DEP and in-
dustry representatives. Tren-'
holm said.
'The recommendations, which
are known as best management
practices, give individual home-
owners and professionals a
chance to prevent nutrient pollu-
tion," she said.
When fertilizer is properly ap-
plied to lawns, very little nitro-
gen and phosphorus is wasted,
because turfgrass serves as a fil-
ter to absorb the nutrients, Tren-
holm said. But if fertilizer is ap-
plied at excessive rates or heavy
rainfall occurs shortly after fer-
tilizing, the nutrients often leach
through the soil into ground wa-
'ter or rtin off into surface waters.
Exc6ss .nutrients in ground
and surface. waters represent
Florida's biggest water-quality
problem, said Eric Livingston,
chief of DEP's Watershed Man-
agement Program.
Nutrients reach Florida wa-
tersheds primarily from so-called
nonpoint sources, which carry


water combined from multiple
locations. One example of a non-
point source is stormwater run-
off in a city's drainage system.
"Nonpoint source pollution is
hard to deal with because the
nutrients may originate from so
many places," Livingston said.
Fortunately, funding to com-
bat nonpoint source pollution is
also arriving from multiple
sources, both state and federal.
DEP now has about $28 million
per year available for research
and implementation, he said.
The UF study is one of the
first long-term research projects
established by the agency.
"It's exciting to have substan-
tial funds available for research,
because there, are so many un-
knowns concerning norpoint
source pollution," Livingston:
said.
The UF fertilizer study began
in April 2004 and the first data'
were collected about a year later,
said Michael Thomas, an agri-
cultural engineer with- DEP's
Nonpoint Source Management
Section who manages the re-
search contract between UF and
DEP. Initial results from the
Study are expected later this
year.
We will communicate find-
ings to the public as things move
along." Thomas said. "Eventu-
ally. the findings will be incorpo-
rated into publications such as
the Florida Yards and Neighbor-
hoods manual, DEP best man-
agement practices manuals and
model ordinances."
Barbra Larson, statewide co-
ordinator of the Florida Yards
and Neighborhoods program.
said:homeowners can help fight
nutrient loss by selecting prod-
ucts containing a high percent-
age of slow-release nitrogen, us-
ing the recommended amount of
fertilizer, and briefly irrigating
turf after fertilizing to ensure
good uptake by the roots.
Those guidelines are found in
"A Guide to Florida-Friendly
Landscaping," Larson said. The
handbook also explains how to
calculate fertilizer application
rates and gives specific recom-
mendations based on the turf-
grass species and location in the
state.
Florida's soils and climatic
conditions vaiy enough from one
part of the state to another that
multiple recommendations are a
necessity, said John Cisar, a pro-
fessor with UF's Fort Lauderdale
Research and Education Center,
who is leading the effort to verify
fertilizer recommendations for
South Florida.
"Generally, Florida has sand
soils that are very prone to the
movement of water," Cisar said.
"Here in the southern part of the
state we have a year-round
growing season and shallow
sand soils."
In the central part of the state
there is some heavier sand soil
and turf is dormant or semidor-
mant during the winter, said J.
Bryan Unruh, an associate pro-
fessor with UF's West Florida:
Research. and Education Center
in Jay, a.community northeast of
Pensacola. Soils in the Panhan-
dle contain sand and some clay,
and colder winters keep grass

dormant up to five months per
year.
At the Fort Lauderdale cen-
ter, researchers are evaluating
the fertilizer needs of St.
Augustinegrass and Bahiagrass;
in Gainesville, St. Augustine-
grass and Zoysiagrass are being
evaluated; and' at UF's West
Florida Research and Education
Center facilities near Pensacola,
Centipedegrass and St. Augusti-
negrass are used.
Each location is hosting stud-
ies of both well-established turf
and new turfgrass produced with
sod or seed, important because
the extent of the root system has
implications for potential nutri-
ent leaching, Unruh said.
Established turfgrass has an
extensive root system that can
mine nutrients from the soil,
whereas sod has a thin layer of
roots and grass seedlings have
few roots at all.
"One question we'll be able to
address is whether it's wise to
fertilize before planting grass
seed," Unruh said. "It's a -com-
mon practice, but some fertilizer
may leach through the soil."
Researchers will also deter-
mine the best timetable for fer-
tilizing newly established turf-
grass, ani important issue for
builders and homeowners in new
developments, he said.
To help researchers collect
water samples to evaluate nutri-
ent,loss, all turf used in the pro-
ject is being grown on carefully
constructed plots with large, fun-
nel-like devices called lysime-
ters, Unruh said.
Water seeping through the
soil in the lysimeter is channeled
through plastic tubing to a col-
lection-point where researchers
can take samples.
The nitrogen and phosphorus
content of the samples will be
evaluated at UF's Analytical Re-
search Laboratory in Gaines-
ville.
The UF study is a welcome
development for commercial
lawn-care providers, who want
to follow best-management prac-
tices but also need assurance
that the guidelines they're asked
to. follow are based on the best
available science, said Erica


Santella, region technical man-
ager of the commercial lawn-care
providers TruGreen-ChemLawn
and TruGreen-LandCare in Or-
lando.
"I'm excited that there will be
some good, solid work to verify
the BMPs," Santella said. "As
Florida grows, water quality is
going to be a big issue, and.it's in
everybody's interest that profes-
sionals, as well as homeowners,
take an active role in reducing
nutrient runoff."

an increase, because it would
bring in about $36 million more
than the past year's levy, an
increase of 16.79 percent.
With the commission's further
reduction, the rate is 8.317 mills,
still well above the "roll-back
rate" of 7.2072 mills.
One mill is $1 in tax for each
$1,000 in taxable property value.
The proposed new millage
would have produced more than
$251 million from property taxes
toward a budget of $1.6 billion.
Twelve taxpayers spoke at the
public hearing, urging, the com-
mission to reduce the millage by
more than the quarter-mill pro-
posed by the county staff.
Clinton Dyer of Lakeland told
the commission, "The more
money you get, the more money
you spend, and the more money
you want." He said taxes should
be lowered because. of the addi-
tional revenue that comes from
new construction.
He said that the tax increase
numbers used by the commission
don't include the increase in
property values.
Henry Taghiof of Winter
Haven, an employee of the Polk
County Health Dept., described
"a state of shock" at the $8,000
tax bill on his new home.
Patricia Jones, manager of the
Camp Rosalie fishing camp, said
taxes at that trailer park went up.
70 percent because of reevalua-
tion of the property. She said she
would have to double her 'lot
rents, and predicted that she
would lose residents.
David Holley of Lakeland said
his tax bill is $8,000. "Most of us
haven't seen a raise of 16.79 per
cent," he said, adding that insur-
ance rates also are going up.
Janice Greenspan said the
actual increase in taxes is more.
than 16.79 percent because of
increased property values. She
said her taxes had, doubled in
three years and her insurance
bill had tripled.
Tonja B. Ellner called the
increase "very, very unfair."
Diana Evans of Lakeland said
she bought a home in March on
which the former owner was pay-

Vigil Planned
Polk County Citizens for

Sept. 11, in memory of the indi-
viduals and families impacted by

ing $1,332 in taxes, and that her
taxes will nearly triple. Housing
prices are falling, she said.
Keith Hallas of Davenport
said his taxes went up 30 percent
last year and 32 percent this
year. He said that 7,000 vacation
homes in northeast Polk County
generate millions of dollars for
schools without adding any chil-
dren to the school system.
Hallas said his area is not
served by the library system, and
asked that service be extended to
northeast Polk. Myers said resi-
dents of that area are eligible to
use the Lake County library sys-
tem.
David Herrington of Winter
Haven, who recently moved from
Lakeland to Winter Haven, said
he is paying $1,100 in taxes more
than his neighbors.
Carlton Hodges, who owns
rental properties in Polk County,
said the county has realized the
largest increase in tax revenues
in its history. His insurance on
his apartment houses went from
$22,000 to $142,000, or $722 per
apartment unit per year. His
deductible also went to six fig-
ures, he said.
Glen Lawhorn of Haines City
said his taxable value doubled
last year and doubled. again this
year, and his taxes had gone from
$2,000 to more than $7,000.
Jean Reed, a candidate for
election to the commission, sug-
gested that the general ad val-
orem property taxes be reduced
because of the new revenues from
the parks and library taxes. "The
hard working taxpayers of Polk
County deserve a break," she
said.
AMost of the public comment
was directed toward the general
tax millage. Hearings on sepa-
rate levies for parks, for libraries.
and for environmental lands
drew little reaction from the
crowd. .
The hair-mill levy for parks
will produce about $9.5 million.
The quarter-mill levy for the'
county library system will bring
in $4.7 million.
Both figures are unchanged
from this year's levy.
The millage for repayment of
debt on environmentally sensi-


tive lands is six-hundredths of a
mill, which comes from a two-
tenths of a'mill environmental
lands tax approved by the voters
several years ago. There was no
public response to that millage.
The $1.6 billion budget is
about $300 million higher than
the present budget, an increase
of 22.6 percent, Ms. McAskill told
the commission.
One mill of tax is earmarked
for road work.
Increases in impact fees are
projected to produce $34 million,
Ms. McAskill said.
Health insurance costs are up
12 percent for both the county.
and employees, she said.
The cost for a 1,200-bed addi-
tion to the South County Jail in
Frostproof is $86 million, she
said. !The work camp to be built
at the Central .County Jail in
Bartow is budgeted at $5.1 mil-
lion.
Wilkinson said the average
jail stay is 28 days, and urged
that the county put more prison-
ers on electronic surveillance and
in the proposed work camp.
At the start of the hearing,
County Mgr. Mike Herr told com-
missioners he 'had added one
more county probation employee
to the budget for electronic moni-
toring of probationers. He said
that position would allow 25
more defendants to be placed in
the electronic monitoring pro-
gram.
The program has processed
'121 offenders in that program
since last December, he said, say-
ing the county more than
$80,000.
,Commissioners approved the
'new position.
With the tenth-of-a-mill reduc-
tion in the operating fund, the
new budget figure is
$1.606,708,924.
"; I think it's going up too fast,"
'Wilkinson said, but he joined in
;the unanimous vote to approve
the slightly reduced budget.'
A final hearing on:the budget
will be held on Sept. 14 at 6 p.m.
at the county administration
building.

Yellow Jackets Sweeten Homecoming

By Shutting Out Bloodhounds, 30-0


By JEFF THORNBURG

Friday night, the Bartow Yel-
low Jackets celebrated Home-
coming with a determined 30-0
win over the Auburndale Blood-
hounds.
The game was played at Lake
Region High School in front of
1,500 fans.
"We had to overcome some
distractions this week," said Bar-
tow Head Coach Shaw Killetts,
"and I'm proud of the way the
boys responded." One of the is-
sues was a few players that sat
out the first quarter for missing
a team meeting.
The Bartow defense opened
the scoring when freshman
Chris Reddick sacked Blood-
hound quarterback Von Brad-
ford in the endzone for a safety.
The Jacket defense played very
well, holding Auburndale to less
than a hundred yards of total of-
fense, forced six punts and had
two interceptions.
Six plays into the second
quarter, Bartow senior quarter-
back Devarious Cook threw a 50-
yard strike to Malcolm Johnson.
The pass completed a 65-yard
drive in just four plays.
Auburndale,,which has yet to
score a touchdown this year,


quickly fell behind in the second
quarter, when Bartow scored
two more touchdowns.
Following a short Bloodhound
punt, Bartow drove 39-yards, in
nine running plays, capped with
a 1-yard dive over the goal line
by senior Carl Edler.
With just seconds left in the
first half, Cook powered into the
endzone from three yards. The
60-yard drive took just over two
minutes, in seven plays. The
drive was highlighted by catches
of 40 and 10 yards by Johnson.
Bartow's first possession of
the third quarter lasted only one
play and 11 seconds, as Cook
threw an 80-yard bomb to John-
son.
"I just did what my coaches
told me, said Johnson, "it was
exciting". Johnson caught five
passes for 224 yards and two
touchdowns.
Jacket Senior running back
Edler, led all rushers with 51
yards on 13 carries.
"A lot of young kids got a
chance to play tonight", said Kil-
letts, "and they showed some
good effort."
During the post-game team
huddle, the Bartow players pre-
sented the game ball to Coach
Killetts with a message of


"thank you."
Bartow, 2-1, jumps back into
district play Friday night, travel-
ing to Ridge Community.
Auburndale, 1-2, is also on the
road this week, visiting Clearwa-
ter Central Catholic.

The Original Church of Christ:


Then and Now
Ron Halbrook
This article appeared in Truth Magazine and is being used here with their approval.


Ifeel that this article needs to beprinted because
of the misleading information about the Church of Christ
that was presented recently on national television.

God created the spirit or soul of man in his image
so that we can have fellowship with him for time and eter-
nity. God as "the Father of spirits" creates all of us innocent,
and he creates us with free will so that we can choose to
obey or to disobey him (Heb. 12:9). "Lo, this only have I
found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought
out many inventions [i.e., sinful plans and schemes]" (Eccl.
7:29). "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of
God" (Rom: 3:23). Sin breaks our fellowship with God, but
he sent his Son into the world to die as a perfect sacrifice so
that we might have forgiveness'and be reconciled to him-
self. "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned
every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the
iniquity of us all" (Isa. 53:6). The Bible records the prom-
ises and fulfillment of God's plan to send his Son to live
among men, to die for our sins, and to be raised from the
dead as our Savior and Lord.
Jesus spent his life teaching lessons to prepare sin-
ners to understand and receive forgiveness of their sins. John
the forerunner announced the presence of Jesus in these
words: "Behold, the Lamb of God which taketh away the
sin of the world" (John 1:29). Jesus explained his mission in
similar words: "For the Son of man is come to seek and to
save that which was lost" (Luke 19:10). He spoke and taught
as God on earth, the very source of truth and salvation: "I
am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me" (John 14:6). His word alone frees the
sinner from his sins, as Jesus said, "If ye continue in my
word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know
the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32).
When Peter confessed, "Thou art the Christ, the
Son of the living God," Jesus responded by saying that upon
this great bedrock or mountain of truth he would call sinners
unto himself as the way of salvation, or, "Upon this rock I
will build my church" (Matt. 16:16-18). The Greek word
translated "church" refers to a number or group of people
called out from one location, situation, or relationship into
another. Christ would call the sinner out of his sins and alien-
ation from God into a new, living, spiritual relationship with
God. Through the preaching of his Apostles the church of
Christ or kingdom of God would come into existence, i.e.,
men would be forgiven of their sins, be reconciled unto God,
and thus enjoy fellowship with God (Matt. 16:18-19).
After dying on the cross as the perfect sacrifice
for the sins of the world, Jesus Christ sent out his Apostles
as eyewitnesses of his resurrection to proclaim the good news
of salvation: "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gos-
pel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall
be saved: but he that believeth not shall be damned" (Mark
16:15-16). All the world must know that the Savior has come!
THE BEGINNING OF THE CHURCH OF CHRIST
After Jesus. Christ ascended back to heaven, he
sent the Holy Spirit to guide his Apostles in proclaiming the
gospel to all the world, beginning in Jerusalem in Acts 2.
They preached the death and resurrection of Christ, show-
ing that he is now sitting on his throne in the new kingdom
of God. Sinners were urged to receive salvation: "Repent,
and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the


Holy Ghost" (Acts 2:38). Three thousand people were im-
mersed in water under the authority of Christ on that very
day, and then others were added day by day: "And the Lord
added to the church daily such as should be saved" (Acts
2:41, 47). The church of Christ had now come into existence
as men entered the way of salvation in Christ by obeying the
gospel of Christ.
The church of Christ is not a man-made organi-
zation subject to the desires and demands of men, but it is a
spiritual relationship and divine organization under the sole
headship of Christ. God raised him from the dead and "put'
all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all
things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him
that filleth all in all" (Eph. 1:22-23). Therefore, the original
church of Christ has no denominational ties, no denomina-
tional name, no denominational creed and no denominational
organization.-
Churches of Christ from place to place are united
:in faith and practice by a simple devotion to Christ as the
Savior and the only head of his church. Because of this de-
votion to Christ, his individual followers wear his name as
"Christians" (Acts 11:26; 1 Pet. 4:16), and Christians who
join together to serve him under his authority from place to
place wear his name as "churches of Christ" (Rom. 16:16).
In their individual capacity, or in their congregational ca-
pacity, they wear no additional human names such as Catho-
lic, Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, Pentecostal, Lutheran,
or any other. In fact, they were forbidden to embrace such
human names and loyalties because this practice would only
divide the people of God who are united in Christ (1 Cor.
1:12-13).
THE TEACHING OF CHRIST: THE ONLY CREED
The teaching of Christ is the only creed in the
church of Christ. Because of their unreserved devotion to
Christ, these first Christians and churches of Christ regarded
his word as final and conclusive on all matters, not subject
to review or revision by anyone. The only rule of faith and
practice is the Bible itself, with the New Testament as the
full and final revelation of the gospel of Christ. The New'
Testament records "the faith which was once delivered unto
the saints" (Jude 3).
We cannot add anything or subtract anything from
the original teaching of Christ, including what he revealed
while on the earth and what he revealed through hisApostles
after he returned to heaven. Jesus promised to reveal "all
truth" to the Apostles he chose in the first century (John
16:13). He fulfilled that promise in the first century. Thus,
he revealed "all things that pertain unto life and godliness,"
and the Apostles wrote this revelation in the books of the
New Testament so that we may "have these things always in
remembrance" (2 Pet. 1:3, 15).
Therefore, in order to follow the original gospel
of Christ, we must preach and practice all that is taught in
the New Testament and only what is taught in the New Tes-
tament. "If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of
God" (1 Pet. 4:11). If we add anything or subtract anything
from the original gospel, we fall under the anathema of God:
"But though we, or an angel front heaven, preach any other
gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you,
let him be accursed: (Gal. 1:8-9).
The original gospel of Christ included the procla-
mation of the life, death, resurrection, ascension, and rule of
Christ as the Father's right hand (Acts 2:22-36; 1 Cor. 15).
The original gospel of Christ included the record of condi-


tions or steps necessary for men to receive salvation from all
past sins and to enter into fellowship with God: faith in Christ,
repentance from sins, confessions of Jesus as the Christ, and
immersion in water for the remissions of sins (Matt. 28:19;
Mark 16:15-16; Acts 2:38; 8:26-40). This original gospel
included the instructions Christ revealed for the work, wor-
ship, and organization of Christians united as local churches
under his rule (Matt. 28:20; 1 Tim. 3:14-15).
THE WORK, WORSHIP, AND ORGANIZATION OF THE CHURCH
The New Testament records the work of churches
of Christ as Evangelism, edification of the saved, and be-
nevolence to destitute members of the church (1 Thess. 1:7-
8; Eph. 4:11-12; Acts 2:43-44). The instruction for worship
"in spirit and in truth" includes Christians meeting to share
the Lord's Supper every Sunday, to give into the treasury of
the church every Sunday, to pray, to teach God's word, and
to sing (Acts 2:42; 20:7; 1 Cor. 16:1-2; Eph. 5:19).
The pattern for the organization of churches of
Christ reveals that local leaders should be appointed in each
congregation to oversee its work and worship. These lead-
ers are called elders or presbyters "because of spiritual ma-
turity" (Acts 14:23), shepherds or pastors (because they
guard and lead Christians like a shepherd cares for sheep;
Eph. 4:11), and overseers or bishops (because they manage
and oversee the affairs of the local church; 1 Tim. 3:2). These
Terms are not different offices but refer to the same office of
leadership under Christ in the, local church (see "elders,"
"overseers,' and "feed" or shepherd in Acts 20:17, 28). These
men are assisted by special servants called deacons. Elders
and deacons are appointed when they meet specific qualifi-
cations given by Christ in the New Testament (1 Tim. 3).
The New Testament reveals no central headquar-
ters, board of directors, district oversees, archbishops, or su-
per-organization over local churches, but only independent
local churches under the direct authority of Christ. Evange-
list or creatures along with other teachers proclaim the gos-
pel to the lost and edify Christians, but without claiming
supervisory power over them. Preachers have no legislative,
executive, or judicial powers but are authorized simply to
"preach the word" of truth (2 Tim. 4:1-5).

THE ORIGINAL GOSPEL REVEALED AND CONFIRMED IN THE
FIRST CENTURY
The original gospel of Christ was fully revealed
and fully confirmed by the miracles of the first century (Mark
16:15-20; Heb. 2:1-4). All of the miracles recorded in the
New Testament were actual, historical events and they proved
beyond all reasonable doubt the truth of the deity of Jesus
Christ and the truth of all things taught in the New Testa-
ment (John 20:31).
According to Paul the Apostle of Christ, the
miracles would continue as the means by which the truth
was to be revealed and confirmed little by little, line my
line, part by part until the process of revelation would be
completed. "For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in
part shall be done away" (1 Cor. 13:9-10). "That which is
perfect" is identical to "the perfect law of liberty," "all things
which pertain unto life and godliness," and "the faith which
was once delivered unto the saints" (Jas. 1:25; 2 Pet. 1:3;
Jude 3).
At the end of the first century, the miraculouIs pro-
cess of revelation and confto nation ended because it had
fulfilled its purpose. The miraculous gifts involved in this


process were done away, just as the word of God has prom-
ised. The genuine miracles recorded in the Bible do not con-
tinue today because God is not revealing and confirming new
truth. "All truth" is dtd in the New Testament (John
16:13).

THE ORIGINAL GOSPEL CHANGED BY MEN
In the passing of the centuries, many people have
made many changes in the original teaching of the gospel
recorded in the New Testament. Teachers have appeared claim-
ing faith in Christ but denying the reality of his miracles, de-
nying his atoning death, and denying his literal resurrection.
The steps or conditions for. receiving salvation have been
changed, with religitlo tiching the opposite extremes
of salvation by bapt (infant baptism) or salvation by
faith only (before and without immersion in water).
The work of the church has been expanded to in-
clude virtually every kind of human endeavor from politics
to economic reform to secular education to recreation, but
Christ revealed nothing in his word to authorize such activi-
ties in the name of the church. The original pattern of worship
has been altered by subtractions (not sharing the Lord's sup-
per every Sunday) and additions (instrumental music, danc-
ing and drama). The organization of the church has been
changed with all kinds of centralized boards, conventions,
and headquarters totally absent from New Testament teach-
ing. Christ never ordained a Vatican with its pope or a de-
nominational headquarters with its president.
Denominational names abound which identify the
human organizations, human leaders, and human loyalties of
the various religions formed when men departed from the
original church of Christ, such human names as Roman Catho-
lic, Presbyterian, Bap methodistt, Pentecostal, Lutheran,
and hundreds of othder:"'T'
SEEKING THE TRUE WAY OF SALVATION
In the lighti**ite things, what should we do to-
day if we are seeking the true way of salvation? We should
recognize Jesus Christ as the original and only savior, and
learn from him about the original gospel, the original plan of
salvation given by Christ, and the original church of Christ. If
we lay our sins at his .y ill be forgiven and we will
be reconciled to God. Svio r offers salvation to all men:
"He that believeth and iR baptized shall be saved" (Mark
16:16).
If we abandon:alkreligions, religious practices, and
human names not authtl by him, we can serve Christ in-
dividually as "Christians" and meet from place to place as
"churches of Christ" just as occurred in the first century. We
will restore and follow his original teaching in the New Tes-
tament about the work worship, and organization of the
church.
When Christ i4ises the dead and delivers his people
to an eternity a fellowship'oith God in Heaven, we will hear
his welcome words, "Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit
the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the
world" (Matt. 25:34).

Tribute to
Mr. Keers


BY COURTNEY SELA AND MICHAEL SMITH
As students, it is easy to forget
about the amazing individuals who
sit behind the desk every Monday
through Friday hoping to make a dif-
ference in their students' lives. Last
year on the last day of school, stu-
dents hurried through the halls think-
ing about the lazy summer days that
were ahead, not stopping to say "thank
you" to their teachers for a great year.
Bartow High School lost forever the
opportunity to say goodbye to an amaz-
ing educator on July II, 2006, when
Mr. Stephen Keers passed away. BHS
suffered the loss of a very vital and ex-
ceptional teacher, but more importantly,
the Bartow community lost an extraor-
dinary and outstanding human being.
Mr. Keers had a sincere concern for
all of his students. He hoped that in the
time students spent in his classroom
they learned not only about physics and
the theory of knowledge but also about
the value of life. By leading through
example, Mr. Keers taught his students
to push beyond boundaries and ques-
tion concepts that were beyond the
abilities of most teenagers. He opened
his students' eyes to the world that ex-
ists beyond the high school realm.
Mr. Keers adored his job as a teacher
and lived each day to the fullest. Al-
though he is no longer with us, his
kindness and love of learning live on
in the lives of his many students. He
was given the rare opportunity to in-
teract with and change the lives of
future politicians, businessmen, law-
yers, doctors, and citizens of society so
that they, too, could benefit the world.
He hoped that students who walked
through his classroom would continue
their pursuit of knowledge and never
stop asking, "What is it that I know?"


A Poole of New Talent for Drama Club
BY JOSETTE SOUZA
The performer stands before the crowd of people reciting memorized lines that flow from lips to ears as easily as the lights fade
black, synchronized, on cue. The piano plays a beautiful, elegant song practiced to perfection softly -just softly enough to compli-
ment the speaker's pronounced voice as it echoes onto a silent audience. When finished, cheers sound, a sign of a job well done.
Dozens of hours are poured into a single performance leading up to a success unjustified by written words. This pressure and pas-
sion is only but a small piece of. a drama student's everyday life. From the teach crew to the instructor and from behind the scenes
to the star in the making, these aspects join together to form the art of drama.
The unbelievable responsibility of sponsoring Bartow's Drama Club falls this year on the shoulders of Corey Poole, Glori Snow's
predecessor. Although Poole is new to Bartow, he is by no means a "newbie." A teacher of four years with extensive training in
both performance and technical theatre, he previously taught Pre-AP English; directed chorus, sponsored a musical group entitled
ENCORE and while in college he majored in Theatre and Music Studies. That drive for drama has led him to where he is today.
As someorie stepping into a new environment, Poole has a lot to take on;
not only is he sponsoring Drama Club in the footsteps of the well-liked Snow, :
he is directing Chorus and Orchestra at BHS/IB as well. He plans to help each '
program by adding to the talent and splendor already evident in all three. Pos- -
sibilities he seeks to fulfill in Drana Club include a musical, the expansion of
Madrigal, and another showcase in the spring.
He invites all students to share in his passion of creating art while relaying -/
to.students the opportunities inside of school and out. Drama is an art, drama '
is a gift, and most importantly, drama is a way of life. As Poole said, "We have
something for everyone...give it a try."

SComes to Bartow
BYANALIS SOUZA
The Orient could not be closer. From an Anime Club hosted at the Bartow Library every
month to Chinese food served in the cafeteria, Asia has made its mark.
Last year current IB senior Ye Yao established the Chinese L-N-C, a club dedicated to
teaching Chinese culture. Club members learned Chinese characters, the twelve animals of
the Chinese zodiac, about celebrations, and to count to ten in Chinese.
The club was originally called Chinese L-N-C because Yao's area of expertise was
China. As the members developed a greater understanding of China, however, and with
the discussions of mini-projects, Yao saw that the club could cover more than just China.
She saw that Chinese L-N-C could envelop a range of other Chinese countries. So the club
was renamed Asian L-N-C, which stands for Asian Language and Culture. It meets every
Monday. This year the club is making t-shirts and will learn more Chinese characters.
To fully grasp the Asian culture they will also have food days, which consist of ordering
Chinese foods from restaurants to be delivered to L-N-C sponsor Denise Young's room.
During these food days Yao taught members how to eat properly with chopsticks while
listening to Asian music and drinking tea.
Asian L-N-C plans to form separate committees to show their club's accomplishments,
One group is making a music artist notebook to show pictures and biographies of singers
that are popular in Asia. Others are in charge of organizing a Japanese animation note-
books, possible movies to watch after school, taking pictures of the club, and forming
an advertisement committee. The club, as a result, is chock full of opportunities to earn
Creative CAS hours.
This year's focus will be on the activities of the Far East, which include Tai-Chi, making
kites, costumes, origami, and bonsai.
Club members are very excited for a new year. "I joined the Asian L-N-C because I
thought it would be an awesome opportunity to learn about another culture," said Kalei
Galloway, a BHS senior. "I wanted to join [the club] to teach me a different language as
well as a learning experience. I wanted culture and tradition."
Jessica Barrow, also a member at BHS, said, "I originally joined because my friend did,
but the more I went the more I enjoyed it. I am very excited for what's going to come of it
this year." It seems that Bartow has caught the Asian fever.

SWIMMING


SPORTS BRIEFS BY: DIANA THOMPSON


The BHS swim team netted third place in their August 24 meet in Lakeland
and are hard at work preparing and training for meets scheduled through Sep-
tember and into the fall.

SOFTBALL
BY HOLLY MARPLE


Sweat poured down the girl's face as she watched for the signal. As the call was made,
she thrust all of her power in a winding motion, then released the ball with a grunt. It flew
straight into the pitcher's glove.
"STRIKE 3, YOU'RE OUT!"
Seven-time state champions, the Bartow Softball Lady Jackets, did the seemingly impos-
sible once again, winning nationals in Ocochobee the week of July 25 through August 1.
The team won 2-0 in their championship game thanks to excellent pitching, an awesome
defense and timely hitting.
Along with Coach Glen Rutenbar, Coach Orr and Coach Roulette, the girls do not plan on
passing up an opportunity to continue to dominate all other teams in the state and nation.
Fall ball started August 23 in preparation for the regular season. The Lady Jackets attend
practices on Wednesday and Thursday, and have added a new strategy class this year, in-
forming and aiding in the effort of what to do while on the field.
The regular season begins January 8, and with a record as good as theirs, the community
and students expect these Lady Jackets to bring home another terrific year.

GIRLS' GOLF
The girls' golf team has been competing in two tournaments a week and prac-

led the team with 44, Sarah Haskins with 53 and Molly Williams and Rebecca
Barry with 59.
