Bartow Memorial Stadium


Home Side To Be Leveled


Engineers hired to inspect Bartow Memorial
Stadium decided Thursday that the home side will
be leveled duringThanksgiving break.
The visitors'side hasbeen determined to be safe.
and will not have any work done.
Current plans are for the stadium to be rebuilt
by the end of March, about the time of spring break.
The administration hopes to hold graduation in the
stadium in keeping with a long-standing tradition.
' The stadium was condemned on Aug. 31. after'
fans noticed crumbling chunks bf concrete falling*
from the stands on the home side the week before.
Principal Ron Pritchard. concerned about the
safety of students and families who attend the
games, asked the school district to send some engi-
neers out to look at the problem.
Home football games are being played 't.r:ieutral
school fields. ,
Bartow Memorial Stadium was.one .of the first
major post-World War II projects in'the qorimunity,


according to historian and teacher Sgt. Lloyd
Harris.
When it was finished in 1950, the stadium was
dedicated .to the memory of the war dead from the
Summerlin Institute. Keynote speaker was Lt.
Gen. Albert H. Blanding, who had served in the
MKexican border dispute in 1916 and in World War
I. He also served as chief of the National Guard
Bureau in the 1930s. During World War II, he was
military advisor to Florida Governor Spessard L.
Holland of Bartow.
.During the Persian Gulf War, the stadium was
rededicated by Principal Ernie Cooper to include all
Bartowans who have served in the military. Harris
later compiled a.list of all Bartow war dead, who
had served as far back as the Civil War and as
recently as the Persian Gulf War. A plaque of this
list was .placed. on the stadium,.seals on the home
side at the 50-vard line.

By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

Growth and spending were the
issues of the day as four county
..,c commission candidates faced
'questions from members of the
Polk County Tiger Bay Club on
Sept. 18'.
Rb'ert-Connors, a former com-
missioner,,.said as. a..real estate
agent and'business owner, he has
a ,"front,row seat" to real estate
issues.
"I-have seen the results of
unplanned growth," he said.
Republican Randy Wilkinson,
who will face the Democrat
Connors for the District 2 seat in
November, said "wiser growth"
also was among his objectives.
Jean Reed, who will face
Republican and former commis-
.sioner Br'uce Parker for- the
SDistrict 4 seat, said her platform
is focused on growthth' t hat pays
for itself."
Parker agreed, saying, he, too,
was concerned about growth in
the county.
At the meeting, the members
ask questions of the guests, and
the first question focused on a
new security measure at the
County courthouse.
The county purchased and put
into use four' machin'- which
blow air on visitors and are used
to detect bomb-making ingredi-
ents.
Candidates were asked
whether'this expenditure was one
they would approve.
Connors said he felt the
machines were not effective
enough.
"Was this a good expenditure'?
I have serious doubts," he said.
Ms. Reed said she though secu-
rity at the courthouse was


already "quite good," and it was
difficult for her to know if the
machines were worth the money.
but she considered safety very
important.
Parker' said he too had some
doubts about.,the cost of the
machines; but thought safety
should be of top concern.
"The Legislature sayts we must
provide judges with security." he
said. "When I was on the commis-
sion, we had a lot of loony tunes
out there. You need 'to do all you
can to protect people."
Wilkinson, who did support the
measure, said he "had to choose
battles.
"I am not afraid to challenge,
but I didn't think it was worth it
in this case."
Candidates were then asked if
they would have supported last
,year's junp in property taxes,
which all resoundingly responded
"no. ,, .
"This is not the right time for
this" tax," lMs. Reed said. "It was
way too much, too fast."
Wilkinson, Sho did not support
the increase, said 32 counties
have reduced property taxes, and
this'year Polk followed suit.
"'Other counties do a better job
prioritizing,", he said. Wilkinson
also said he wanted tolook at cut-
ting taxes again next year.
Parker agreed, stating he
thought there would be room for
property tax cuts'in the future.
Connors said he felt the prob-
lem was 'a "disconnect between
spending and taxes," and the
county needed to take a fresh look
at spending.
"If you don't vote for the taxes,
don't vote for the spending," he
said.
When asked how taxes could
be cut without a reduction in ser-


vices, Wilkinson said he was in
favor of looking at .a continued
lease of the South County Jail,
and other budget cuts.
He said he had completed a
private survey of priorities, and
found more than $5 million in
cuts.
"When.the commissioners get
in front of the department admin-
istration, however, they get weak-
kneed," he said.
Parker. said. he felt "talking
about cutting spending was a lot
easier than doing it."
The place to start, he said, was
growth and inflation, and cross
training employees to provide
more services.
"We would all like to do what
Tampa's doing, but we can't."
Connors, who also favors zero-
based budgeting, said he wanted
to better plan for growth and to
trim inefficiencies,
"We need to look at the big pic-
ture," he said.
Ms. Reed agreed, stating, "We
need to believe in a comprehen-
sive plan."
She said a key is to work with
municipalities and develop a uni-
fled land code.
When asked about their lead-
ership style, all discussed their.
ability to build a consensus.
And as for what. sets them
apart?
":My ability to communicate
clearly about the issues," Connors
said.
"Diversity Not just by being a
woman, but someone who lis-
tens," Ms. Reed said.
"Bringing a lot of people with
diverse ideas to the table,"
Wilkinson said.
"My ability to get a consensus
and experienced leadership,"
Parker said.

Southeastern University re-
cently added an international
business program, bringing the
number of undergraduate de-
grees offered.to 43..
Administrators added the ma-
jor due to the university's contin-
ued efforts 'to fellow job growth
trends and respond to the de-
mand with majors that will help
students compete with larger,
secular university business ma-
jors, said Lyle Bowlin, dean of
the College of Business and Le-
Sgal Studies.
The international business
major makes sense for two rea-
sons, Bowlin said.
"Southeastern University has
always had a heart for missions,
and preparing business majors
in th4 area of international busi-
ness seems a good fit for.our mis-
sion," he said.
"We also are living in a global
economy and international busi-

Watercolors Offered At FSC


Florida Southern College will
present the paintings of Elliot
O'Hara, a mid-20th century wa-
tercolorist, in the Melvin Art
Gallery.
"Ring of Fire: Watercolors of
the Pacific Shores" runs Oct. 6-
30. An opening reception takes
place Oct. 6 from 7 p.m. to 8:30
p.m.
O'Hara, a famed watercolorist
of the .1920 to 1960 period, was a
world traveler.
This exhibition, which covers
his entire career, shows his
paintings of the Pacific Rim from
Chile, Mexico, California, Ore-
gon and Alaska to Japan, Aus-
tralia, Hong Kong, New Zealand,
Fiji and Hawaii. The exhibit is
on loan from the Harmon-Meek
Gallery in Naples.
.O'Hara won awards from the


American Watercolor Society for
his'innovative techniques with
watercolor. Six books were writ-
ten from 1932 to 1965 about his
discoveries, which for several
generations showed thousands
how he could create any effect he
wanted with the difficult me-
dium.
He is represented in more
than 60 museum permanent col-
lections and was "the most popu-
larly known watercolorist in
America during the 1930s to
1950s," a gallery spokesman
said.
The Melvin Art Gallery is
open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. and during intermissions of
many performances of the FSC
Fine Arts Series.

majors for those openings."
The international business
major is similar to a manage-
ment major with classes in inter-
national business, international
marketing and international fi-
nancial management.
Additionally, all students'ma-
joring in international business
must spend at least three
months outside the United
States in a different culture,
Bowlin said.
"We have heard from prospec-
tive employers that universities
that offer international business
majors without requiring the
students to actually spend some
of their time 'internationally' are
not really viewed as prospective
employees for international busi-
ness openings."
,Southeastern offers seven
other business majors, as well as
a graduate degree in business
administration. "

4 The Polk County Democrat September 25, 2006


Editorial
^'*Ig^^l^y-^^^^i^M^B^


The story is represented as the truth,
though frankly, we have never taken it at
face value:
A high ranking officer, approaching the
entrance to the military base which he
commanded, ordered his driver to' drive
past the guardhouse without stopping.
The guard on duty emptied..his .45 cal-
iber pistol at.the officer's staff car, but hit
nothing.
The officer had his driver whip around
and go back to the guardhouse.
He jumped from his car, ripped off, the
guard's rank insignia, and said:
"That's not for shooting; that's for miss-
ing!"
That anecdote was brought to mind by
the story last week from Tampa about two
teenagers.in a stolen car who, being chased
by the police, ran past the guardhouse at
MacDill Air Force Base a little before 3
o'clock in the morning.
Police called the guardhouse to warn
them of the' approaching car, but the call
reportedly arrived a few seconds after the
car sped past the gate. The fleeing car
thieves were apprehended by Tampa
police about two miles inside the base,
before they got within striking distance of
any military buildings.
MacDill spokesmen downplayed the
significance of the breach of security, and
they make a good point.
The super-sensitive headquarters build-
ings that house both Central Command
and Special Operations Command have
extensive security. They are protected by
armed guards, tire shredders, and other
barriers, The Tampa Tribune reported. The
homes of the 28 flag officers who live at
MacDill are protected by armed guards
and concrete barriers.
It is a basic premise of security opera-
tions that the military, whether in a combat
zone or in garrison, defends against a per-.


ceived threat. Few car thieves are stupid
enough to go, speeding past a military
guardhouse with civilian police in hot pur-
suit; it'is not a perceived threat.
The gates onto the base are manned by
courteous guards, and their screening
arguably is more effective at stopping tres-
passers than terrorists. To require all the
service members, their families, and the
countless retirees who pass through those
gates daily to wend past concrete barri-
cades would create endless traffic jams.
We suspect that the guards at the CENT-
COM and SOCOM buildings would be
less tolerant of anyone who tried to breach
security at those two headquarters .
That said, we suspect that the guards at
the gate that night, and the NCOs and
junior officers appointed over them, have
received a stern briefing by their superiors'
on what action to take against anyone who
tries to go speeding past the guardhouse in
the future.
For our part, we're glad that two 16-
year-olds joy-riding in a stolen car didn't
pay for their offense with their lives.
But they could have.
We suspect that anyone who emulates
their poor judgment in the future does so
at his considerable peril.

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

Forbes 400; Where Are My Friends?


Car Thieves at MacDill


Pushed Luck to the Limit


Surely it was an oversight; I
couldn't find a single friend 'of
mine on the list.,
The list of the nation's wealth-
iest souls.
The Forbes 400.
Four hundred successful peo-
ple, and not a single one of'them
a friend of mine.
Not a fellow journalist; not a
fellow Episcopalian; not even a
fellow Rotarian.
What's happenedfto the neigh-
borhood?
Forbes magazine released its
annual list of the hoi polloi last
Thursday, and I scanned it on the.
Internet.
(Interesting bit of trivia: hoi
polloi has two meanings; the first
is 'the masses," a term which I
abhor: the second is "elite," a
:group which has not invited me
to become a member.)
.The price of poker has gone
up. Forbes 400-wise. It takes a bil-
lion bucks to make the. cut this
year, plus or minus $100 million.
In billionaire circles, that's close
enough for government work.
Bill'Gates is at the head of the
list, with $53 billion, and Warren
Buffett is second at, $46 billion.
Their places at the head of the
class don't appear to be in jeop-
ardy; the guy in third place,
Sheldon Adelson, who owns casi-
nos and hotels, tips the scales at a
mere $20.5 billion.


There's a 27-way tie for last
place, those who barely cleared
the bar with an even $1 billion.
In 1982, the first year that
Forbes published its list, there
were only 13 known billionaires.
The opportunity to crack the Big
B should serve as a source of
inspiration to us thousandAires
throughout the land.
Martha Stewart no longer
makes the list, having lost nearly
$400 million. I always wondered
how a woman who claims to
gather her own fresh eggs for
breakfast every morning could be
so rich.
Of the 400 filthiest among the
filthy rich, 89 live in California
and 44 in New York City. I have
visited both places several times,
and I don't begrudge them their
riches. A billion bucks doesn't go
as far .in California or the Big
Apple as it does in Polk County.
In scanning the list in a futile
effort to find a few of my friends,
I discovered that the first
Floridian. on the list is John
Werner Kluge of Palm Beach,
who made his $9.1 billion at
Metromedia.
If my count is correct, there are
28 billionaires living in. Florida,
including Malcolm Glazer and
family, owners of the Bickaroos,
in a 29-way tie for 160th place at
$2 billion. Seldom do billionaires
seek my counsel, but my advice

Tnfsnts Receiving Vaccine Combination e
-W-W W -W 0Members


Have Higher Chance Of Fever Danger


Infants receiving a new com-
bination of vaccines were twice
as likely to require medical at-
tention for fevers after their
shots as babies who received the
prior shot regimen, University of
Florida and Columbia University
researchers have found.'
Babies who received a new
shot that mixes five vaccines
into one at the same time they
were given two other standard
shots visited the emergency
foom, underwent blood tests and
were treated with antibiotics
more often than other babies,
the researchers write in the cur-
rent issue of "The Pediatric In-
fectious Disease Journal."
"Reducing the number of
shots is wonderful, but it just
happens that when you combine
it with two other shots also rou-
tinely given, there is an in-
creased risk of fever," said Dr.
Lindsay A. Thompson, a UF as-
sistant professor of pediatrics
and the study's lead author.
"This study shows that be-
yond the important safety and
efficacy studies the FDA re-
quires there are often unin-
tended consequences when you
apply any new technology to the
real-life Petri dish."
The new vaccine, introduced
in 2003, protects against diph-
theria, tetanus, pertussis, polio
and hepatitis B. It allows doctors
to give infants one shot instead
of several different shots. The
other two shots, which combine
with the new vaccine to cause
more fevers, protect against bac-
terial infections such as pneumo-
nia and meningitis.
Before pediatricians -widely
adopt new vaccines, they should
decide how to address issues like
these to best treat their tiniest
patients, the researchers suggest
in the study. This is particularly
important as new vaccines con-
tinue to be introduced, Thomp-
son said.
While these fevers are gener-
ally harmless to infants, they



Obituaries

Marylou
Lewis
Marylou Lewis, 79, of Lake-
land, died of a brain hemorrhage
Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2006, in
Lakeland.
Born in Cleveland on June 2,
1927, Mrs. Lewis lived in Clear-
water and Mt. Carmel, Ill., be-
fore moving to Lakeland in 1990.
She was a homemaker, and a
member of First United Method-
ist Church in Lakeland.
Mrs. Lewis was preceded in
death by her parents, Eugene
Shumate and Zelmia
(Greathouse) Shumate.
Survivors include her hus-
band of 61 years, Frank M.
Lewis; two sons, David Lewis
and wife, Karen, of Fort Meade,
and Gregg Lewis and wife,
Donna, of Lakeland; and five
grandchildren.
A memorial service will be

create a two-prongedproblem for
pediatricians, Thompson said.
Doctors treat fevers aggressively
in infants. 3 months old or
younger, which is when most ba-
bies receive their first shots.
Dangerous bacterial infections
are to blame for about 10 percent
of infant fevers, which doctors
would not want to miss, she said.
Because of this, infants with vac-
cination-related fevers might go
through unnecessary testing,
such as a spinal tap, or be ex-
posed to emergency room germs.
There's also the chance that
some doctors will begin to over-
look a fever after a baby has
been vaccinated, passing it off as
a side effect of a vaccine when it
could actually be something
more serious.
Of the nearly 4,000 records re-
searchers combed from Columbia
University's health-care system,
where Thompson completed the
research, 1 out of every 100 ba-
bies visited the. emergency room
for fevers after their shots. Re-
searchers did not measure the
number of parents who may
have just called their doctors or
decided to treat the fever at
home, she said.
"In the scheme of things, 1 out
of 100 babies going to the emer-
gency room is not a massive bur-
den across the U.S., but I think
for each family it is," Thompson
said.
The researchers found that af-
ter using the vaccine for awhile,
many doctors seemed to delay
when they gave the shot to ba-
bies, likely because infants gen-
erally are not treated as aggres-
sively for fevers after they are 2
months old, Thompson said.
"That, I think, is problematic
because there is a real need to
vaccinate all children as soon as
possible," she said. "Some fami-
lies may have a hard time get-
ting back to the clinic. You could
miss giving a child an immuniza-
tion."
Waiting to vaccinate until a
child is 8 weeks old also may be
putting, the infant at risk, said
Dr. Tobias R. Kollmarin, an as-
sistant professor of pediatric in-
fectious and immunological dis-
eases at the University of British
Columbia. Some conditions doc-
tors vaccinate against, such as
pertussis, make adults sick but
can kill a 6-week-old infant, he
said.
Kollmann said the UF study
highlights the biggest need for
pediatricians, health workers
and parents: more education and
communication about vaccines.
The more doctors and nurses
know about vaccines, the more
parents will know, improving the
chances that all children will be

vaccinated, he said.
"It's an important finding," he
said. "The biggest hurdle is edu-
cation. Everyone involved needs
to be up-tospeed."
Thompson stresses that the
combination vaccine is safe and
used across the United States
and in UF clinics. But she em-
phasizes the need for more re-
search into how to best evaluate
children with fevers after vac-
cines to avoid exposing them to
unneeded tests and antibiotics.
"One of my primary interests
as a pediatrician is to make sure
every child is vaccinated," she
said. "But I think we work in an
isolated way. Researchers work
on vaccines. Primary care physi-
cians work on primary care. I
think there needs to be more
overlap between new technolo-
gies and'the real world."

It's difficult to accept the idea
that a young, healthy person
would want to take his or her
own life. Yet, suicide is the third
most common cause of death
among those 11 to 24.
Unfortunately, there are a
number of commonly accepted
myths about young' people and
suicide that sometimes get in the
way of recognizing and helping
those at risk. The recent book,
Suicide Across the Life Span, ed-
ited by Dr. David Capuzzi, exam-
ines a wide range of issues re-
lated, to suicide and its pieven-
tion, including dispelling many
of these mistaken ideas.
Myth: "Adolescents who talk
about suicide never attempt sui-
cide.",
Dr. Capuzzi reports all suici-
dal adolescents make attempts
(either verbally or nonverbally)
to let a friend, parent or teacher
know that life is becoming too
much to bear. Talk of suicide is
an attempt to find help and iden-r
tify options other than death to
decrease,the pain being experi-;
enced.

no warning."
Actually, suicidal adolescents
offer numerous hints and warn-
ings about their intentions. Un-
fortunately, such hints are often
overlooked or dismissed, espe-
cially if a potential suicide has
few friends or a disengaged fam-'
ily.
Myth: "Adolescents from
wealthy families attempt or com-
plete suicide more often than
adolescents from poor families."
Experts find suicide is evenly
divided among socioeconomicd
groups.
Myth: "Once an adolescent is
suicidal, he or she is suicidal.for-
ever."
Experts say when adolescents
are taught to identify things
stressing them, and learn prob-
lem-solving skills to remove the
stress, they're able to avoid the
hopelessness that drove them to
-consider suicide.

cents because it may give some
of them the idea."
Actually, talking about sui-
cide may help an adolescent ver-


balize feelings of despair. The
adolescent wants help and a way
out, not to die. Sadly, when an
adolescent believes someone
knows he or she is suicidal, but
that the person is afraid to ap-
proach the subject, it can
heighten feelings of despair and
hopelessness.
As "Suicide Across the Life
Span" notes, adolescent suicide
is a growing problem that needs
more understanding. Often, even
a small amount of assistance can
help many adolescents get
through their moment of crisis.
"Suicide Across the Life Span"
features essays from 'sixteen ex-
perienced counseling profession-
als. It's available through Ama-
zon.com or the ACA bookstore at
1-800-422-2648, ext. 222.

"The Counseling Corner" is
provided as a public service by
the American Counseling Asso-
ciation, the nation's largest or-
ganization of counseling profes-
sionals. To learn more about the

Poker Run Planned For Red Cross


American Red Cross Polk
County Chapter and Highlands
County Service Center have be-
gun gathering riders and spon-
sors for this year's fall mnotorcy-
cle poker run.
The Fun Bike Center Ride for
the Red to benefit the American
Red Cross of Polk County will
mount up at 10 a.m. Saturday,
Nov. 18, in two locations with
two motorcycle packs.
One pack will leave from the
Circle in Sebring. Another will
leave from Central Park in Win-
ter Haven, the site of the origi-
nal ride.
Riders will have their choices
of eight stops four in High-
lands County and four in Polk,
County to end at the Winter
Haven Bikefest at 5 p.m. ..
For those who haven't pre-
registered, registration begins at
8:30 a.m. at the two locations.
Linda Scialo, emergency serv-
ices director for the Polk County
Chapter, organized the original
Ride for the Red and said she
was thrilled to have Fun Bike
Center agree to be title sponsor
for this year's event.
Not only was Fun Bike Center
in Lakeland an original stop and
sponsor from the inaugural Ride
for the Red in Polk County, Ms.
Scialo and several members of
her family purchased their mo-
torcycles from Fun Bike Center
and met many of their riding
friends two years ago through
rides sponsored by Fun Bike
Center.
Highlands County Service
'Center Director Art Harriman
first learned of the ride last fall,
he and Ms. Scialo immediately
began discussing plans for a dual
event, giving avid motorcyclists
in Highlands County who
showed tremendous support for
the American Red Cross during
the last two years a chance to
have fun in a family-oriented
event.
Harriman said he looks for-
ward to having this ride on a
regular basis every year, and is

ting a motorcycle and training to
do the ride himself.
Prospective riders from both
counties are welcome to stop by
Fun Bike Center in Lakeland
and see a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan
Classic 1500, to be given away in
a chance drawing after the ride.
So far, stopsinclude Fun Bike
Center as title sponsor and
Bartow Chevrolet. Other stops
are expected to be announced
soon.
Opening ceremonies will get a
bit more involved this year, as
well. The Sebring pack will have
local soprano Patty Young open
the ride with the Sandy Patty
version of "The Star-Spangled
Banner." followed by bagpipe
music from local pipers Sue Wes-
ton, Tony Barrett, and Bob
Campbell. "
The Winter Haven pack open-

Jackets End Hardee's 46-Game

Streak In Nailbiting Finish, 32-31


By JEFF THORNBURG

Friday night the Bartow Yel-
low Jackets snapped Hardee's
46-game regular season winning
streak by defeating the Wildcats
in a thrilling 32-31 overtime con-
test.
It was a very exciting and en-
tertaining high school football
game, filled with intensity, great
plays, passionate fans and a
longtime storied rivalry.
The game took place before
2,500 fans at George Jenkins'
Veterans Stadium.
All 31 points scored in the
first half came off turnovers.
Bartow converted two Hardee
fumbles into 10 points in the
first quarter. Jacket defensive
lineman Mark Keeley recovered
a loose ball, and on the next play
Jacket quarterback Devarious
Cook connected with the county's
leading receiver, Malcolm John-
son, for a 25-yard touchdown
pass.
Hardee fumbled away its next
possession, and Jacket lineman
Russ Workman recovered the
ball. Four plays later junior
kicker Brent Delph added a 22-
yard field goal. The potent Wild-
cat offense trailed 10-0, after
running only four offensive
plays.
Then it was Bartow's turn to
give the ball away and Hardee
scored 21 unanswered points.
Jacket senior running back Phil-
lip Jackson had the ball stripped
away, and three plays later Har-
dee's Herman Patterson scored
from two yards out.
A Bartow pass was inter-
'cepted on its next possession.
Hardee mounted a 51-yard drive
capped by a five yard run by
their quarterback Weston Pal-
mer.
The touchdown gave Hardee a
14-10 lead in the second quarter.
Hardee, 4-1, took an 11 point
lead into halftime, when Palmer
tossed a five yard touchdown
pass to Jermaine King. following
Bartow's second fumble of the
first half.
The Yellow Jackets narrowed
their deficit to four on their first


possession in the third quarter, a
70-yard scoring drive in just
seven plays. The drive was kept
alive on a fake punt pass play
from Jasper Stephens to Jack-
son, and the next play Jamal
Darling leaped and snagged a
26-yard touchdown pass from
Cook.
Late in the fourth ,quarter,
Bartow's Ellis McRoy blocked a
36-yard Wildcat field goal at-
tempt.
Trailing by four with two and
half minutes remaining, Bartow
marched 78 yards in seven plays,
and recaptured the lead with
less than a minute left on Dar-
ling's second touchdown catch of
the half, a 17-yard pass from
Cook.
If you ask Jacket fans, the
game's final minute took forever
to play. Hardee started on their
own 20-yard line. Three com-
pleted passes and a Bartow pen-
alty moved the ball to the Jacket
28-yard line, where Hardee at-
tempted a 45-yard field goal to
force overtime.
As time expired, the kick fell
short, but Bartow was flagged
for a personal foul. Since the
game cannot end on a defensive
penalty, the ball was mbved for-
ward to the Jacket 13-yard line,
and the Wildcats' Pablo Anselmo
was successful on his 30-yard
field goal. The game was tied 24-
24, at the end of regulation.
In high school overtime, both
teams get an offensive posses-
sion starting at the 10-yard line.
Bartow won the overtime coin
toss and elected to go on defense
first. Two plays later Hardee's
quarterback Palmer threw an
eight-yard touchdown pass to
Orel Virgile, and Anselmo added
the extra point.
The Jackets' turn on offensive
was quick. Senior running back
Carl Edler wasted no time, on
the first play he took the handoff
and blasted straight up the mid-
dle into the end zone. Delph
added the extra point, but Har-
dee was penalized on the play.
Bartow decided to accept the
penalty, go for the two-point con-
version aind the win. From the

High Expectations for

BHS Boys Golf Team


By NEAL DUNCAN
Sports Correspondent

Bartow High School Golf
Team is off to a red-hot start
with expectations of a record set-
ting season.
The best ever finish for a BHS
Boys Golf Team was second
place in the district tournament
iri 1989. with one of the current
coaches, Chris Banks, being a
member of that team.
"We set a goal this year to get
through the district tournament
and hopefully finish high enough
to move on to state," Banks said.
To date the Jackets have a re-
cord of 11-3 with two of those
losses being to a very talented
Lakeland High School team and
the other to Winter Haven. Bar-
tow has beaten Winter Haven
the other three times they have
faced them in head-to-head com-
petition and in tournament play.
There are only two classifica-
tions in golf in FHSAA play, 1A
(small school) and 2A (large
school).
Bartow, competing in the 2A
division, is in a district that basi-
cally covers all Polk County's big
schools, as well as a few others
from out of the county.
Bartow started off well this
season by placing second behind
Lakeland at the County Match
Play Tournament.
Bartow also is coached by
Scott Newell and is led by senior
Lee White, sophomore Nick Tho-
mas and freshmen Drew Guffey
and Cole Mitchell.
Bartow also is getting solid
contributions from Kyle Baker,
Danny Leckie, and Brendan
Mattina.


New Snook Minimum

Size Limit Takes Effect


Snook season reopened Sept.
1. and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion I.FWCi issued a reminder
that it has added an inch to the
snook minimum size limit.
The FWC approved a rule in
June to increase the snook mini-
mum size limit to 27 inches total
length. Previously, the minimum
size allowed for snook harvest
was 26 inches.
The FWC passed the new rule
to complement another new
regulation, which took effect
July 1. That regulation requires
snook to be measured by deter-
mining the straight-line distance
from the most forward point of
the head with the mouth closed.
to the farthest tip of the tail with
the tail compressed or squeezed
together, while the fish is lying
on its side.
Increasing the snook mini-
mum size limit by one inch com-
pensates for a slight increase in
length some anglers may achieve
when measuring snook this way.
It also likely will increase snook
spawning stocks by decreasing
snook harvest by 22 percent on
Florida's Gulf Coast and by 12
percent on the Atlantic Coast.
The maximum size limit for
snook remains unchanged at 34
inches total length.
Snook harvest is prohibited


from Dec. 15 through Jan. 31
statewide and from June
through August on Florida's At-
lantic Coast. On the Gulf Coast
and waters of Monroe County
and Everglades National Park,
snook harvest is not allowed
from May through August.
At all other times, a recrea-
tional daily bag limit of two
snook per person applies on the
Atlantic Coast. The limit on the
Gulf Coast and waters of Monroe
County and Everglades National
Park is one snook daily per per-
son.
Licensed saltwater anglers
must purchase a $2 permit to
harvest snook. Snatch-hooking
and spearing snook are prohib-
ited, and it is illegal to buy or
sell snook.
Snook regulations also apply
in federal waters.
A recent FWC stock assess-
ment for snook indicates harvest
has been increasing in Florida
because more anglers are fishing
for this popular sport fish, and
consequently, the management
goal is falling short.
To address the problem, the
FWC is working with a stake-
holder. group to review .snook
management issues, and the
commission will consider further
adjustments to regulations if the
group recommends them."


"We have a young but tal-
ented group this year,"J3anks
said. Though Banks is very mod-
est about it, much of this talent
has been developed in the youth
program that he began nine
years ago.
The program runs during the
summer months at Bartow Golf
Course.
"It gives the kids a chance to
play all summer and work on
their game. I am just thankful
the City of Bartow has been so
supportive of the program." said
Banks.
Banks and some Bartow vol-
unteers have been heavily in-
volved with the creation and im-
plementation of the Central
Florida Junior Golf Tour. Many
BHS players have participated
and placed well on this tour.
"I know that the Central Flor-
ida Tour has helped our young
kids develop more under some
pressure situations," Banks said.
He is counting on this develop-
ment to help the Jackets when it
is time to compete for the district
title.
Bartow Golf Course will be
hosting this year's county tour-
nament on Oct. 5. The district
tournament will take place just
days later on Oct. 9-10 at Sun n'
Lake Country Club in Sebring.
