Serrano Murder Trial Continues


Mosquito Spray Plane


Crashes, Killing Two


By REGINA-CINO
Staff Writer

A mosquito plane spraying
insecticides crashed outside of
Fort Meade Thursday night
around 8 o'clock, killing two Polk
County mosquito control employ-
ees.
The pilot was Richard
Wheeler, 71, who had worked four
years for the county. Also a flight
instructor and aircraft mechanic,
he had 23,000 flight hours before
coming to the county. Wheeler
had also served in the U.S. Army
from 1956 to 1961.
His passenger was Clayton
Merriett, 62, an observer and
mosquito control foreman in the
county's Natural Resources
Division.
Merriett began with the county
in 1991; he was set to retire in
two weeks.
The plane appeared to be fly-
ing dangerously low shortly
before the crash, said Fort Meade
I


Police Officer Kevin Bradley.
"By the time I returned to the
station the plane had just gone
down," Bradley said.
The mosquito control's mission
that night was to spray
Christmas Tree Trailer Park, Fort
Meade, and Bradley Junction,
between 7 and 9 p.m.
The plane, a 1965 twin engine
Piper, was used as a mosquito
sprayer. It was near the end of its
flight, so the majority of the pesti-
cide chemicals had been'expelled
prior to the crash, a county
spokesman said.
The insecticides on board
caused a chemical brush fire that
was extinguished by Fort Meade
firefighters. The toxic chemicals
on the ground at the crash site
made it virtually impossible for
the Polk County Sheriff
Department's crime scene techni-
cian and detectives to reach the
crash site to process the scene, to
recover the bodies or begin the
death investigation.
Deputies secured the scene


through the night and resumed
investigating the crash the next
morning with HAZMAT gear.
Ten Fort Meade volunteer fire-
fighters were sent for tests to
determine their levels of chemical
exposure. Five employees were
put on antibiotics, and three were
put on light duty, Chief Bill
Gunter said. The symptoms are
severe sore throat, running nose,
and intestinal problems..
"We're'still in the process of
determining what to do with the
bunker gear," Gunter said. "We've
been told it may need to be
thrown away."
Further investigation will con-
tinue with National Traffic Safety
Board officials traveling from
Boulder, Colo., to investigate the
cause of the crash.
The county's mosquito control,
risk management, and fire ser-
vices divisions are working with
the Environmental Protection
Agency to determine proper
cleanup procedures for the chem-
icals on the ground.


Lawyers for the prosecution and defense cofer
about taping the testimony of Nicoletta Dosso last
week during the trial of accused mass murderer
Nelson Serrano. Assistant State Attorney John
Aguero (from left) and defense attorneys Bob
Norgard and J. Cheney Mason agreed to unusual
plan after Circuit Judge Susan Roberts ruled that
any show of emotion by Mrs. Dosso, mother of two


of the victims, could result in a mistrial. Serrano is
on trial for the fatal shootings of his former partner,
George Gonsalves; another partner's son, Frank
Dosso, and daughter, Diane Patisso; and Diane's
husband, George Patisso, at Erie Manufacturing in
Bartow on Dec. 3, 1997. Also testifying by videotape
was Maria Dosso Jacoby, widow of Frank Dosso. -

Public Hearing on City Tax


Rate and Budget Is Tonight


Bartowans will have their
final chance tonight to comment
on the city's tax millage and pro-
posed 2006-07 city budget.
A public hearing oh the tax
rate and the budget will be held
at tonight's city commission
meeting.
The proposed tax rate is 4.5
mills, unchanged from last year.
The millage is $4.50 per $1,000 of
taxable value. City taxes on a
home on the tax roll at $100,000,
less $25,000 homestead exemp-
tion, would be $337.50. Taxes on
a piece of rental or commercial
property would be $450.
Under Florida law, the tax can
be decreased, but not increased,
at tonight's hearing.
The tax is projected to bring in
$2,778,960.
While the millage is being
kept the same, it is defined under
Florida law as a 12.07 percent
tax increase, because it will bring
in more money than it did last
year due to the increase in prop-
erty values.
A public hearing also will be
held on an ordinance to zone 38.2
acres of property immediately
north of Gordon Heights, adja-


cent to Bartow Municipal
Airport, for light industry.
Rezoning-of.the. parcel as 1-2
(heavy industry.) was rejected
last month by a 3-to-2 vote of the
city commission in the face of
strong opposition by residents,
several of whom urged that the
property be zoned I-1 (light
industry).
At the commission's next
meeting, the applicant returned
with an application for 1-1 zon-
ing, and the commission granted
the request.
Tonight's public hearing will
be held before the commission
takes final action on the rezon-
ing.
The commission will meet for
a work session at 5 p.m. at city
hall, and will reconvene for its
regular business meeting at 6:30.
Other items on the agenda:
Public hearing and final
reading of two related ordinances
to change the land use and zon-
ing of a 9.8-acre parcel on the
Bartow High School campus from
residential to institutional. The
change is being made to clear the
way for construction of the
Summerlin Academy buildings.


First reading of an, ordi-
nance to clarify the penalties
that the city can impose for code
..violations. ...... .
Proclamations designating
Sept. 25 to 29 as Race Equality
Week, and Sept. 30 as Polk
County Heart Walk Day.
Consideration of a settle-
ment agreement with Highland
Cassidy, LLC, a developer who
sued the city after the commis-
sion rejected a "planned develop-
ment" application on E.F. Griffin
Road.
Appointments to the beauti-
fication advisory board, the
boards of trustees of the police
officers' and firefighters' pension
funds, and the zoning board of
adjustment.
Approval of a change in the
city's investment policy on cash
reserves.
Renewal of a contract with
Kirk S. Warren to provide legal
services to the police department.
Authorization to transfer
unencumbered balances in the
2005-06 city budget to close out
the fiscal year.


Message To Predators:


Stay Away from Our Kids!


Polk County has made the
message unmistakably clear to
sexual offenders and sexual
predators:
Stay away from our kids!
At the urging of Sheriff Grady
Juad, the county commission
adopted an ordinance that for-
bids persons designated as sexu-
al offenders or sexual predators
from living:
Within 2,500 feet of a school,
daycare center, public park, or
library.
Within 1,000 fee of a desig-
nated school bus stop or a
church.
The requirements do not apply
to people presently living too
close to a designated facility, but
will apply when they move to a
new address, Judd said. It also
exempts-a violator who was
charged as a minor not tried as
an adult.
"Access to children is a prime
motivator ... to committing
additional crimes," he said.
Florida law already imposes
some limitations on violators, but
many cities and counties are
adopting more stringent provi-
sions.
Unlike most county ordi-
nances. which apply only outside
of the city limits of Polk's 17
municipalities, this ordinance
applies throughout the county,
unless a city wishes to opt out.
Judd said he didn't want to
create a situation where cities
were chasing violators into unin-
corporated areas, or vice versa, or
where Polk County became a
haven for violators from other


counties.
"We already have too many of
our own," he said. "Even one
would be too many."
The state and the county puts
violators names and photographs
on law enforcement web sites,
"but we didn't think that was
enough," Judd said. "We need to
know where sexual predators
and offenders are at all times.
There's a litany of things they
have to do."
The Polk Counity sheriff's
office has a uhit with a sergeant,
two full-time detectives, two
part-time detectives, aind an ana-
lyst who keep track of offenders
and predators:
They make quarterly checks
"to verify they are living where
they say they should be," Judd
said.
"We will monitor their every
move, and if they trip up, we're
going to put them back in jail.
"It is zero tolerance on sexual
predators and offenders when
they violate any laws. Sexual
predators don't change their
habits.
"We have an obligation to keep
the people of Polk County safe.
"There are numerous cases of
sexual offenders reoffending.
Over 80 percent of adult rapists
admit that they have assaulted
children.
'"They're scary folks."
Polk County presently has 986
residents who are designated as
sexual offenders, of whom 99
carry the label of sexual preda-
tors.
Of that number, 295 are under


the supervision of probation and
parole officers, and 79 offenders
and 16 predators currently are in
the Polk County jail.
"We know where they are,"
Judd said.
A sexual offender is anyone
with one conviction of any sexual
crime 'committed against an
adult or a child, he said.
A sexual predator is a person
certified as such by a circuit
judge for the crime of sexual cap-
ital battery or a life sentence
crime or first degree felony after
Oct. 1, 1993, or any crime of a
sexual nature after that date, or
any offender adjudged to be a
"sexually violent predator" as
defined by law.
Sexual crimes include sexual
battery, lewd and lascivious
behavior, and similar offenses.
"We have the opportunity to
keep the children safer," Judd
said. 'When we work together,
we can reduce the probability a
child being a victim again.
"It's another piece in the war
against the predator and the
offender."
Commissioner Jack English
asked how predators operating
on the Internet would be affected
by the ordinance.
Judd replied that the PCSO is
monitoring the Internetand that
crimes committed by sexual
predators are felonies. Violators
are classified as offenders or
predators after their release from
prison.
The ordinance passed by
unanimous vote.


Polk Shaves $1.25 Million From $1.6 Billion Budget


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
/ Publisher
In a second public hearing on
the Polk County budget that last-
ed nearly two-and-a-half hours
SThursday riight, county commis-
sioners voted Unanimously to,
shave another 44 hundredths of a
mill from the, county's tax rate,
then approved a $1.6 billion bud-
Sget for the fiscal year that begins
Oct. 1.
The reduction trimmed the
budget by slightly more than
$1.25 million.
SCommissioners first voted to
,cut seven-tenths of a mill from
the taxes imposed outside the city
limits for parks and libraries, but
then reversed that decision and
voted to reduce taxes by a smaller
amount for all residents of the
county, whether they live inside
or outside of Polk's 17 municipali-
ties.
Fran McAskill, the county's
director of financial and strategic,
planning, said that 44-hun-
dredths of a mill of general ad val-
orem property tax would equate
to seven-tenths of a mill in the
parks and libraries tax. The
reduction in the budget is
$1,250,080, she said.

$1,605,458,844. He predicted that in 10 years,


the county's tax rate will be at the
previous level of 7.27 mills or
lower.
Ad valorem taxes will produce
$248 million, most of which is
committed to public safety, he
said.
"If we're going to save money,
we've got to save it in another
area.. We are going to decrease
taxes, but we are going to do it in
an organized fashion, not by the
seat of our pants."
Urging a cut in the tax rate,
Commissioner Sam Johnson said,
"I'm just not comfortable with
where it's at."
"We've been low for a long
time," Commissioner Paul Senft
said of the tax rate. As a result,
the county is having to pay more
for roads and other infrastructure
than if they had been built in past
years, he said.
Commissioner Randy
Wilkinson moved to lower the
overall village to 8.1 mills; his
motion died for lack of a second.
English moved to approve the
budget as submitted, without fur-
ther reductions from the previous
week's action, urging the commis-
sion "to approve the budget and
get along with business."
His motion failed on a 3-to-2
vote, with Wilkinson, Johnson,


and Myers voting against it.
Myers suggested that the com-
mission reduce the Municipal
Services Taxing Unit (MSTU)
taxes which are imposed.for parks
and libraries.
English disagreed, saying, "We
have a plan; we should stick with
it." It's unfair to the county staff,
which prepared the 'budget, to
make last minute changes, he
said.
It would be better, he said, to
roll back the overall ad valorem
property tax, not the library and
parks taxes.
The commission then voted 3-
to-2 to cut the combined village
for parks and libraries by seven-
tenths of a mill, a reduction that
would apply only to taxpayers
who live outside of the cities.
"A lot.of people would say
that's insignificant; it's better
than doing nothing," Myers said.
"We're trying to give a nickel here
and a nickel there."
He said that the growth in
property values that results in
higher taxes also increases the
price that the county has to pay
for parks and road right-of-way.
But after further discussion,
commissioners rescinded that
action and voted for an overall
reduction of 44-hundredths of a


mill in the general ad valorem
tax, which is applied to all prop-
erty in the county.
That figure was based on the
amount by which the seven-
tenths of a mill reduction in the
parks and libraries taxes would
have produced.
Cutting seven-tenths of a mill
from the overall village would
reduce the county's contingency
fund from $3.4 million to $1.4 mil-
lion, Ms. McAskill said.
Historically, the commission has
budgeted about $2 million in the
contingency fund, which pays for
items not in the budget.
Johnson and Senft both said
they would rather see the tax
reduction made countywide,
rather than only for the parks
and libraries tax.
While supporting the county-
wide, millage cut, Wilkinson said
the reduction of 44-hundredths of
a mill is "an infinitesimal
amount.".,
After commissioners approved
the final tax rate and the budget,
Myers said, "All in all, I think it's
a responsive budget that lets this
county go forward and become a
county of choice."
Senft said Polk is still in the
lower half of 13 area counties in
taxes.

and other retail food stores.
Bronson's action comes in the
wake of a U.S. Food and Drug
Administration warning advis-
ing consumers throughout the
country to avoid eating the prod-

with approximately 50 cases of

Toward that end, inspectors
from the department's Food
Safety Division are on the look-
out for the product while they
are out performing their routine
sanitation inspections of food
stores. If any such product .i
found, inspectors will notify-
store personnel of the FDA
warning.
Most of Florida's major super-
market chains already have re-,
moved fresh bagged spinach


smaller grocery stores have re-
ceived the word from FDA and
have pulled the product from
their produce aisles.
E. coli causes diarrhea, often
with bloody stools. Most-healthy
adults recover from the ailment
within a week, although people
at highest risk the very

promised immune systems -
can develop a form of kidney fail-'

The federal government is
continuing its investigation of
the outbreak to determine the
source of the bad spinach.

Martial Arts School

Offers Fit Kids Program


Local martial arts school, The
WREKAR Academy of Self-De-
fense and Street Survival, has
responded to a new series of
studies that indicate an over-
weight child rates his or her life
as low as that of a young cancer
patient.
The school's new WREKAR
Fit Kid program helps kids older
the age of 8 get healthier with a
combination of martial arts, fit-
ness and personal development
training.
"I read that study and as a
martial arts instructor and per-
sonal fitness trainer it hit me
that we are in a great position to
help these kids," said Ron Hill,
the school's owner. "For one,.
we'll help them lose weight,
which is the most important as-
pect for their physical and men-
tal health.
"But, let's face it, learning
martial arts greatly reduces the
threat of bullies due to the fact
that training boosts are self-es-
teem and confidence so that we
are not looked at as victims."
According to three separate
studies, overweight children are

ART FOR LIFE offers unique exhibits for view to those who do-
nate blood. (Photo provided)

Blood Bank Offers Art Exhibit


Earlier this year, the Winter
Haven branch of Blood Banks of
Mid-Florida Medical Services
teamed up with Ridge Art Asso-
ciation to present blood donors
with something more than the
usual blood bank T-shirt.
Together they launched an ex-
citing new program, called Art
For Life, giving blood donors one
6f a kind shirts featuring the art-
work of a respected local artist
and the opportunity to view the
artist's work while giving blood.
Through September and Oc-
tober, donors will receive a T-
shirt featuring the artwork of
award-winning local artist Ed-
win Ryan Bailey.
This latest shirt is currently
available and features an origi-
nal work of art by Bailey titled,"
Triumph," a mixed-media cross.
According to the artist the
piece is typical of the latest
phase of his work mixed me-
dia on wood with found objects.
"As with much of the art-
works I create I have included
text directly on the piece. Usu-
ally this text identifies the title
or the narrative of the piece. In
this case, -the image is ,of the
original'blood donor.' I selected
this image for my shirt because I
felt it was truly fitting for the act
of giving of one's self through the
donation of blobd," he said.
As part' of this program, Bai-
ley's mixed media artwork will
be, on display..in, the lobby of. the-
Winter "Haven blood bank
through the months of Septem-
ber and October.
Bailey is the fifth, artist to be
featured in the series. Drop by
and see this unique exhibit and
while there, possibly save some-
one's life by donating blood. The
T-shirts are exclusive to Blood
Banks of Mid-Florida and,,theq


only way to obtain one is by do-
nating blood.

ing the gift of life or to set up a

Paper Ballots, Because


Something Can Go Wrong


Years ago, as computers started taking
over functions previously handled exclu-
sively by humans, a favorite joke making
:, the rounds was about the announcement
from an airplane cockpit just after take-off.
"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome
aboard the world's first computer-con-
S trolled flight.
"There is no one in the cockpit. This
flight will be controlled entirely by com-
puters from take-off to landing.
"There is no reason to be worried. The
C computer is infallible.
"Nothing can go wrong ... go wrong
... go wrong..."
When we bought our first bookkeeping
computer, we promised our readers and
advertisers that we would not turn over to
the computer the responsibility for making
mistakes; that important task would be
reserved for the human beings who oper-
ated it.
And we observed that computers do not
eliminate errors; they simply make it pos-
sible to make them with a speed that pre-
viously could not be imagined.
All those thoughts were brought to
mind by a story out of Trenton, N.J., last
week that a Princeton University professor
and two students had figured out how to
hack into one of the most popular electron-
ic voting machines. By doing so, the pro-
fessor decared, they could either alter the
vote totals or disable the equipment.
It took only 10 seconds to pick a lock
which gave access to memory cards, and
less than a minute to substitute corrupt
software for what was installed at the fac-
tory .
The manufacturer, not surprisingly,.
cried "foul," and said it had installed
newer, more hacker-proof software on its
equipment. Taken at face value, that
defense tacitly acknowledges that earlier
versions some of which presumably are
in use are indeed vulnerable.
Stuffing the ballot box has been possible
since the concept of the secret ballot was
developed. Chicago used to be notorious

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Randy and Reuben


I am so glad that S.L.
stepped up to the plate for
Randy Wilkinson.
If I didn't know better, I
would have thought that the
trouble he had on the weekend
before the election was a plot.
I have been trying to figure
out how I could apply for an
absentee ballot and vote for
Randy the next time he runs for
anything.
I attended a county com-
mission meeting the last time I
was in Bartow.
Someone in Lakeland was
attempting to close one of the
main roads in Lakeland around
a lake. Closing the road would
have meant that the people who
lived on the road would have
had to go the long way around
the lake to get to work and
chalk up a lot of miles and time
getting there.
Luckily, Randy saved the day
and voted against closing the
road permanently. I wonder
how much gas he saved those
folks on that one.
When I worked at the Florida
Highway Patrol, the central


division office was still in
Bartow in the basement of the
State Road Dept. building. I was
the one who the drunk drivers
had to report to once each
month in order to keep their
drivers' licenses. I was not very
popular with that crowd.
Especially an elected official.
I don't remember his name, but
it didn't matter then and it
doesn't matter now. He was
always in a nasty mood when
he made his monthly report. He
was in a really nasty mood the
time he came in ranting and
raving and telling me how busy
he was. I told him that he had
only himself to blame and that

I wonder if he ever got his
probation finished. I got mar-
ried and left town before he did.
Randy Wilkinson probably
maintained his composure,
even if he was running around
in the rain in the middle of the
night in wet pants, putting up
his "Vote for Randy" signs. I'll
bet that elected official would
really have been nasty if he had


been running
pants.

I noticed the letter from
Reuben Wallace in last week's
Democrat.
Reuben's accomplishments
were well known to everyone
when he was in high school.
Not only did he deliver the
paper, he also played football,
was the soda jerk at Wilson
Drugs and whipped up a mean
chocolate soda.
That is, when he wasn't
walking the sidelines at the
Friday night football games for
his report to the newspaper. He
is a man of many talents. I'll bet
he is a fine minister, too.
I wonder if there is any way I
could register as an absentee
voter in Polk County. I like your
elections much better than
those up here in Georgia,
Maybe I could write to
whomever is in charge and tell
them that I know Reuben and
Randy and a lot of other people
who really matter.

While this sounds kind of
funny, the Center for Orbital

(you've heard of them, of
course) says that -any one of
these pieces of orbiting flotsam
and jetsam, orbiting Mother
Earth at more than 15,000 miles
per hour, could do serious dam-
age if they hit an astronaut, or
even a spacecraft.
NASA and the Air Force only
keep track of items that are larg-

their official tally is 9,925. That
leaves another 90,000 uncata-

Yes, the world needs messy

It's nice that we have enough
of them that we can spare a few
to send out of this world.

FWC Gives New Teeth

To Florida Wildlife Laws


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
Sservation Commissioners (FWC)
approved a measure to join 23
other states in a pact to suspend,
hunting and fishing license
privileges for anyone committing
a conservation law violation that
costs him his license in any other
participating state.
If no one requests a hearing
during the next 21 days, the new
rule will take effect 20 days after
that deadline.
The rule honors license sus-
pensions for like-violations from
other participating states. In
cases, such as trespassing, how-
ever, in which other states may
suspend hunting licenses, Flor-
ida will not suspend,the viola-
tor's license privileges in this
state because laws do not pro-
vide for license suspension for
the same violation here.
FWC Law Enforcement Capt.
Curtis Brown said the rule will
make FWC officers more effi-
cient by allowing more time for
enforcement duties rather than
processing procedures.
"It will make violators more
accountable for their illegal ac-
tivities," Brown said.
"Wildlife lawbreakers no


longer will be able to escape con-
sequences just by crossing a
state line."
Other participating states in-
clude Arizona, California, Colo-
rado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana,
Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michi-
gan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ten-
nessee, Montana, Nevada, New
Mexico, New York, North Da-
kota, Oregon, South Dakota,
Utah, Washington and Wyo-
ming.
There's more bad news for re-
peat violators jail time and
mandatory fines grow stiffer
with each violation under new
enhanced-penalties laws already
in effect in Florida.
For instance, a violation that
carries a nominal fine for a first
offense has not changed, but the
same violation will carry a mini-
mum mandatory fine of $250 for
a second offense within three
years and a minimum manda-
tory fine of $500 and a one-year
suspension of all recreational li-
censes for a third offense within
five years.

Yellow Jackets Fizzle Bolts, 26-0


By JEFF THORNBURG

Bartow Yellow Jackets leveled
their district record at 1-1 with
their third shutout of the season,
a 26-0 win over' the very competi-
tive Ridge Community Bolts at
their campus in Davenport.
Ridge outrushed the Yellow
Jackets 'by almost 50 yards,
earned twice as many first
downs and had seven more min-
utes of possession time. Bartow
had the edge in passing and did
not commit a turnover while the
Bolts had two interceptions and
two fumbles.
"I'd call that an ugly win,"
said Bartow Head Coach Shawn
Killetts. "We had some mental
and physical mistakes, but it's a
district win and we'll take it."
Bartow scored on the second
play of.the game when senior
quarterback Devarious Cook
connected with junior receiver
Malcolm Johnson, who sprinted
down the middle of the field into
the end zone.
The scoring play covered 67
yards.
The Jacket defense controlled
the Bolts offense in the first half.
Ridge's first half possessions
ended with two punts, two inter-
ceptions, a fumble, and downs.
The Bolts' best offensive
standout was sophomore run-
ning back Mike James, who led
all rushers with 115 yards on 21
carries.
Bartow's junior kicker, Brent
Delph, added a 43-yard field goal
late in the first quarter. The kick


was set up by a Phillip Jackson
interception.
Late in the third, Delph split
the uprights with a 23-yard field
goal.
In the second quarter, the
Yellow Jacket offense struggled.
Bartow went three and out on
their next three possessions and
were forced to punt, with the last
punt attempt blocked by the
Bolts.
Bartow defensive lineman
Tony Patterson recovered a Bolt
fumble on their first drive of the
third quarter. However, Bartow
could not convert the turnover
into points and was forced to
punt.
The Yellow Jacket offense fi-
nally got on track in the fourth
quarter, sealing the victory with
two touchdowns. A three-yard
run by Carl Edler, and then
Cook to Johnson for 19 yards.
The county's leading receiver,
Johnson gained 102 yard's and
two touchdowns on just three re-
ceptions.
"We made some mistakes,"
said Killetts, "still have some
work to do, but I thought Delph,
Johnson and our defense did a
good job."
Friday night, things get
tougher for Bartow, as the Yel-
low Jackets will host the 11th-
ranked Hardee Wildcats. The
game will take place at Veterans
Stadium on the campus of
George Jenkins High School.
Ridge will enjoy an open date.

Sports Correspondent

The Lakeland ThunderBolts
are coming off the best season in
team history.
The ThunderBolts posted a
13 3 record and clinched the
2006 Atlantic South Division Ti-
tle of the National Indoor Foot-
ball League (NIFL).
In only their second season,
they received a remarkable re-
ception from, the growing fan
base in Polk County; they are
quickly making indoor profes-
.ional football one of the hottest
tickets in the area.
On Aug. 10, ThunderBolts
owners announced that they
would no longer be a part of the
National Indoor Football
League, (NIFL).
After much consideration the
owners decided the best move for
the ThunderBolts would be to
enter the Anmerican Indoor Foot-
ball League, (AIFL):' The Bolts
will begin a 14 game season in
February as members of the
AIFL.
The football playing rules of
the AIFL' are similar to the
Arena Football League (AFL)
rules; this will benefit the Thun-
derBolts' players since they will
play in such close proximity to
AFL teams in Tampa Bay and
Orlando.
Another major change for the
Bolts this off-season was the hir-
ing of new general manager, Al
Green.' '
Green comes to the Lakeland
team with a distinguished career
as an Athletic Trainer, Instruc-
tor, Marketing Director and
Clinical Services Coordinator.
His career spans over 30 years,
with most of them spent as the
Head Athletic Trainer, at the
University of Kentucky from
1979 1997.
In addition to being the Bolts
GM, he currently is involved as a
r-onsultant with Rehab and Oc-
cupational Health Partners, a
Clinical Educator at Florida
Southern College, and an Audi-
tor for Pharmaceutical Distribu-
tion and Marketing Audits.

for the Lakeland ThunderBolts
and their fans.
"We are excited about the
prospects for next year", said
Green. "We really want to make
our games family friendly. We
have already reduced our al-
ready inexpensive ticket prices,
which makes it an event every-
one can attend."
When asked what type of foot-
ball a fan can expect when they
attend a ThunderBolts game,
Green responded, "We have the
best coaching staff around, and
,they do a great job developing
younger players looking for a
break."
"We also have some former
NFL (National Football League)
players who are either, in the
twilight of their careers or have
been injured and looking to
make it back to the NFL. Either
way, we have fine athletes who
go out there each week and lay it
on the line," Green added.
"We want to get more in-
volved this year in the 17 mu-
nicipalities of Polk County. Our
coaches, players and cheerlead-
ers are more than happy to at-
tend special engagements, func-
tions and fundraisers."
The team is searching for the
best players in the Polk County
area to be a part of their team.
Anyone with the skills and tal-
ent who wants to play for the
hottest professional indoor foot-
ball team in the country is en-
couraged to attend the 2007
ThunderBolts open tryouts.
Tryouts will be on Sept. 23, at
9 a.m. They will be held at the
Mulberry.High School Football
Field, 1 Panther Place, Mul-
berry.
Registration begins at 8 a.m.
with tryouts starting promptly
at 9 a.m. There is a sign-up fee
of $50 (cash or money orders
only).
Tryouts will include field-test-
ing in the 40-yard dash, profes-
sional short shuttle, L-drill, as
well as some one-on-one drills.
Players should come dressed in
proper athletic apparel, shorts
(no jeans) and grass cleats, a
Thunderbolts T-shirt will be pro-
vided.
