'God Will Be the Judge &i


and Jury This Time'


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Less than 24 hours after a
deputy and his K-9 partner were
:killed and another deputy wound-
.ed, the suspected shooter was
'himself dead, shot by SWAT offi-
-cers searching for him in thick
woods.
Walking shoulder to shoulder
through vines and underbrush.
the officers were practically on
top ofAngilo Freeland before they
spotted him under a large, fallen
oak tree covered with vines, Polk
Sheriff Grady Judd said.
They ordered him to show his
hands; he raised one and officers
saw a handgun.
"It's the last thing he ever did."
Judd said in a news conference
Friday morning.
"God will be the judge and the
jury this time," Judd said. The
suspect "chose his end."
Officers knew the suspect's
"proclivity for violence" and his
"proclivity to create mayhem and
create death."
Later, Judd said he trusted
"God to be the judge and jury bet-
ter than anyone on the face of the
earth."
SWAT team members "clearly
saw a firearm in the suspect's
hand when they located him hid-
ing on Friday morning, and he
did raise the, weapon in their
direction," Polk' County Sheriff's
Office spiokesrimn Carrie Rodgei-s
said. 'Oollectively they fired 110)
rounds at.the suspect, several of
the rounds lodging in the oak tree
under.which he was hiding. The
suspect was hit by 68 rounds."
The suspect, identified as


S The Bartow city commi-sion
will reconsider this evening an
application for an 870-unit devel-
opment Wind Meadows South
on E.F. Griffin Road.
The development, w uch
includes 200 town house units,
was rejected by the commission a
few weeks ago.
S The' developer, Highland
Cassidy, LLC, filed suit against,
the city over the commission's
action.
In a mediated settlement, the
commission agreed to set aside
its action and reconsider the
issue, and in return Highland
Cassidy dropped its suit.
The 272-acre development on
the west side of E.F. Griffin Road
would have 670 -ingle-famnil,
homes in addition to the town
houses. It' would be zoned
"planned development," which
gives the developer and the city
leeway to depart from regular
zoning standards.
The development would have
some homes on 60-foot lots- 10


Angilio Freeland. 27, had dug out
under a large, fallen oak tree, and
was hiding there when officers
stumbled upon him Friday morn-
ing about 9:30.
. "We probably had dozens of
deputies walk over that 'area"
during the massive manhunt,
Judd said, and it was only "by the
grace of god that other deputies
Weren't shot."
The 20-hour manhunt, involv-
ing 1.000 police officers from
throughout Central Florida,
began Thursday after Deputy
Matt Williams and his K-9 part-
ner Diogi were killed and Deputy
Douglas Speirs was wounded fol-
lowing a traffic stop on \VWbash
Avenue in Lakeland.
Speirs stopped Freeland for
speeding at 11:45 a.m., and
Freeland gave a false identifica-
tion to the officer. Freeland ran
into the woods, and the deputies
followed, not knowing the suspect
was armed, Judd said.
Speirs was on top of a drainage
ditch, and could see Williams and
Diogi working the brush, Judd
said. Williams and Diogi were
shot first, then Speirs. Judd said
it appeared that Williams and
Diogi were ambushed in the thick
brush.
Williams was shot eight times:
once each in his right wrist, left
bicep, left rear thigh, right leg,
right buttock, and right upper
arm; a close range shot behind his
right ear, and a contact wound,
where the muzzle was touching
his skin, near his right temple.
Deputy Williams was not
wearing a vest, but it wouldn't
have changed the outcome, based
on the wounds he received, specif-

Rodgers said.
K-9 Diogi, a German shep-
herd, was shot once in the chest,
according to an autopsy report.
Deputy Sheriff Doug Speirs
was fired at several times by the
suspect, Rodgers said, and was
shot once in the leg.
Two Lakeland police officers
who went to a nearby house were
fired at several times by the sus-
pect, who was in the back yard.
The police, who were not hit, fired
back, with the residents nearby.
Freeland, a Jamaican man,
had previously been arrested in
Polk County in 1999 by the
Florida Highway Patrol for no
valid driver's license, reckless dri-

resisting arrest without violence,
and carrying a concealed weapon.
His autopsy showed that he
died from multiple gunshot
wounds. The fingerprints that

Ctty Ofticals To Hear Public on

Growth Management Issues


After more than a year of meetings with city staff
and planning consultants, the Bartow city commis-
sion will seek the public's opinion on Tuesday after-
noon on what they would like to see Bartow become
in the next generation.
The commission and the zoning board will hold a
joint meeting at 5:30 p.m. at city hall.
The one-sentence agenda reads: "Public hearing
to receive public input regarding growth and devel-
opment for the City of Bartow."
Public debate on growth policy has been sparked
primarily by the profusion of high-density subdivi-
sions on E.F. Griffin Road, a rural area which pre-
viously has had single homes on multi-acre lots.
Concern over the city's growth patterns prompt-
ed the creation of Our Town Bartow, an organiza-


tion of 92 citizens concerned about growth manage-
ment.
:In a mailing to its members laAt week, Our T'bw
Bartow said that Bartow's city-limits have quadru-
pled in size in the past five years due to annexation,
but the city's land use map h '-not been revised.
The city has approved moi 'than 2,300 new
homes, and was sued by a developed, iho waits to
build another 870 homes on E..' Griffin Road,
including 200 town house units.
"This is the first opportunity citizens have had to
address city leaders on growth management that
didn't involve a specific development project," Brian
Garrett, president of Our Town Bartow, wrote ih ai
letter to members.

Bartow DAR Celebrates Constitution Day


Rebecca Lockhart, state re-
gent of the Florida State Society
Daughters of the American
Revolution, was the keynote
speaker at the Bartow Chapter
National Society Daughters of
the American Revolution's Con-
stitution Day luncheon.
Representatives from DAR
chapters of the FSSDAR Heart-
land Regents Council and the
Sons of the American Revolution
Chapter in Lakeland were pre-
sent.
The event, held at the Peace
River Country Club, celebrated
the signing of the Constitution of
the United States 219 years ago
on Sept. 17, 1787.
Mrs. Lockhart reviewed a
brief history of the Constitution,
the document by which our coun-
try is governed. She emphasized
the meaning of the Preamble,
which states the purpose of the
Constitution. The opening
words, "We, the People of the
United States," underline the
thought that we, whose who are
being governed, have a part in
forming the government, Mrs.
Lockhart said.
Mrs. Lockhart also displayed
a first edition of the Florida
State Society yearbook. Pro-
duced in 1933, it covers a period
of time from the first state re-
gent appointed in 1894, through
1932. The Bartow Chapter, or-
ganized in 1930, is one of the 36
chapters listed, and this year
celebrates 76 years of service to
the objectives of the National So-
.ciety Daughters of the United
States.

The parade will begin at 4
p.m., at the corner of First Ave-
nue and Main Street in down-
town Bartow. Due,to partial clos-
ing of Main Street, the parade

to Oak Avenue, to Summerlin
Street, and then back onto
Broadway Avenue, ending at
IMC Park.
The annual carnival, which
will feature games, food, rides,
and more, will be held immedi-
ately following the parade at
IMC Park, north of the Bartow
Civic Center.

Beware of Scam Letter And Bogus Check


Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief
financial officer, warned Floridi-
ans to be on the lookout for bo-
gus letters telling them they've
won a contest and urging them
to send checks to collect the
prize.
Florida is among several
states whose residents have been
targeted by this scheme in re-
cent weeks.
The letter is on forged MAG
Mutual Insurance Company sta-
tionery and implies the recipient
has won $250,000 in a contest.
The letter includes a worth-
less check for about $2,900 to
cover "administrative payment
and clearance fees" and asks the
recipient to deposit the check
and then write one of their own
for the costs of receiving the non-
existent prize.
"We are working with com-
pany representatives and other
states' law enforcement agencies
to track down the perpetrators of
.this scam," said Gallagher, who
oversees the Department of Fi-
nancial Services' Division of In-
surance Fraud, which was ini-
tially alerted to the scam.
The scam perpetrators seek to
receive and cash the recipient's
check before they or their bank
realizes the check sent-with the
letter is worthless.
So far, only one Floridian has
reported receiving the letter.
Anyone who gets one of the let-
ters is urged to call the depart-
ment's Fraud Fighters' hotline at
1-800-378-0445.
Gallagher said this is an ad-

vance fee scheme that occurs
when the victim pays money to
someone promising something of
greater value such as a loan,
contract, investment, or gift -
and then receives nothing in re-
turn.
Gallagher, who also oversees
the Bureau of Unclaimed Prop-
erty, said these schemes may
also tout found money or prop-
erty and ask the consumer to for-
ward a finder's fee; however, too
often the "finder" never has the
intention or the ability to help
the victim.
Florida's unclaimed property
laws prohibit the solicitation or
acceptance of a fee in advance
for notifying or assisting some-
one with a claim for unclaimed
property. Only registered loca-
tors can lawfully solicit and re-
ceive a fee, and then, can only do
so after a claim is approved and
paid.
Gallagher offered the follow-
ing tips on how to avoid such a
seam:
If the offer of an 'opportu-
nity" appears too good to be true,
it probably is.
Know with whom yjou are
dealing. If you have not heard of
a person or company with whom
you intend to do business, learn
more about them. Depending on
the amount of money that you
intend to spend, you may want
to visit the business location,
check with the Better Business
Bureau or consult with your
bank, an attorney, or the police.
Make sure you fully under-


stand any business agreement
that you enter into. If the terms
are complex, have them re-
viewed by a competent attorney.
Be wary of businesses that
operate out of post office boxes or
mail drops and do not have a
street address; be wary of deal-
ing with persons who do not
have direct telephone lines and
who are never "in" when you call
but return your call later.
Be wary of business deals
that require you to sign nondis-
closure or noncircumvention
agreements that are designed to
prevent you from independently
verifying the identification of the
people with whom you would do
business.
Con artists often use noncir-
cumvention agreements to
threaten their victims with civil
suits if they report their losses to
law enforcement.
"We urge anyone who may
have information about this
scheme to call our hotline and
report it," Gallagher said.
"These schemes often prey on
those who can least afford it."

4 The Polk County Democrat October 2, 2006


.J. A L ,.JLC.

When you nick a cop, we all bleed.

Legend has it that the Mounties the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police -
"always get their man."
To what extent that boast is valid, we do
not know.
But in our considerable experience cov-
ering local crime news, it is our observa-
tion that one of the surest ways to be
arrested is to kill a law enforcement officer.
And despite the fact that many of us
have had the experience of seeing flashing
red and blue lights in the rearview mirror
at a time when we wish the officer had
been watching someone else, there is an
almost universal sense of support for law
enforcement when somebody kills a cop.
That phenomenon has led us to the
observation that opens this editorial.
The murder early Thursday afternoon of
Polk County Deputy Sheriff Matt
Williams, and the wounding of Deputy
Douglas Speirs, underscores the, lesson
that "a routine traffic stop" can become
anything but routine in a heartbeat.
A motorist stopped for speeding pro-
duced false identification to Speirs, a
deputy assigned to traffic duty in the north
Lakeland area. Apparently fearing that he
would be jailed, the motorist fled on foot
into a wooded area north of Kathleen High
School.
Even that action was not so irrational as
to suggest that the motorist was a poten-
tial killer.
Williams and his K-9 police dog, Diogi,
were dispatched to the scene, and began
searching the dense underbrush.
The fleeing motorist fired on. both offi-
cers and the dog, killing Williams and
Diogi,'and wounding Speirs.
The foolish mistake of running from a
traffic officer was transformed into what
would soon become the fatal mistake of
killing a cop.
Before long, an estimated 500 police offi-
cers from law enforcement agencies
throughout central Florida converged on

the scene and established a perimeter
around the woods that a fruit fly couldn't
have gotten through.
Sheriff Grady Judd declared: "We'll not
sleep; we'll not rest until we have this guy
in custody."
Less than 24 hours later, Judd
announced that officers had spotted the
gunman, almost completely hidden
beneath a fallen tree.
When ordered to show his hands, Judd
said, he showed only one, and an officer on
the scene said he spotted a pistol in or near
his other hand.
Nine officers immediately opened fire,
killing the fugitive.
An investigation will be made into the
circumstances surrounding the shooting,
as always should be done when an officer
uses deadly force. At this point, there
seems to be no cause to second guess the
decision of the officers on the scene.
Somewhere, someone undoubtedly
grieves for the dead man; he is entitled to
that.
Few Polk Countians will.
If there is misfortune in this case -
beyond the, death of a law enforcement
officer it is that the gunman's reason for
taking another man's life to avoid. capture
may never be known.
In announcing the shooting, Judd said it
will be up to God to serve as judge and
jury. That says it well.

her occasionally.
She would call the office mid-
afternoon each day, and ask who-
ever answered the phone, "Will
you tell me the time please?"
We all recognized the charm-
ing French accent, and were only
too happy to give her the time of
day. We wondered if she had a
list of people she called,. and if
this was her way of maintaining a
social life in her adopted home-
land.
And while it was Madame
Parisot whose voice and person-
ality were known to the commu-
nity, it was her husband whose
place in medical history was sig-
nificant, if not widely known.
As a young man, he was an
associate of Louis Pasteur, whose
name lives to this day as the
inventor of pasteurized milk.
Less well known, he also was the
man who invented the rabies
serum.
"Medical history relates that
one night while Pasteur and his
assistant were working late, there
came a frantic knock on the door.


"They fit exactly the physical
stereotype of the elderly French
couple the husband, fat and
with a Walrus moustache, seated
in an easy chair, the wife, diminu-
tive and stooped, flitting birdlike
around the room.
"Both had been born in France
many years before they came to
America and, eventually, to
Bartow. They lived in a small
house on South Central Avenue, a
home built more to the propor-
tions of the wife than of the hus-
band.
"They spoke fluent English,
with a strong French accent.
"His name was Louis Parisot,
and he had brushed an important
event in medical history, His wife
was known as 'Madame Parisot.'
I'm sure she had a first name, but
I never heard it."

Thus began a column written
by Dad. slightly more than 20
years ago. A friend brought a
copy to the office last week.
To my recollection, I never met
Madame Parisot, but I talked to

OUR READERS SAY

Praise for Officers, Faculty


BARTOW I wish to express
my sincere appreciation to our
students, parents and guardians
as well as our staff members for
their patience and professional-
ism during a very serious situa-
tion in and around the Kathleen
area.
There is no greater concern for
us at Polk County Public Schools
than the safety and security of
our students and staff. I am
grateful that all of our students
and staff returned home safely
Thursday evening.
The professionalism demon-
strated by pur staff Thursday
reinforces my belief that the
countless hours we spend each
year preparing emergency man-
agement procedures is a crucial


part of our program. While we
can never fully predict a crisis sit-
uation and the outcome, we can
certainly prepare and continue to
evaluate our processes.
To all of our brave men and
women in law enforcement,
thank you for your tireless efforts
to keep our students, staff and
community safe. Your leadership
and assistance during the crisis
was invaluable. I am deeply sad-
dened by the loss of one of your
family members and the father of
three of our students. Please
know'that my thoughts and
prayers are with the Williams
family and the greater law
enforcement community.
Thanks also goes to the pastor
and members of Victory Church


for allowing us to transport over
1,600 of our students to their
church. Their willingness to
accommodate our students
allowed us to safely release stu-
dents to parents in an area
deemed safe by law. enforcement.
They further extended their gen-
erosity by providing refresh-
ments.
And to our greater community,
thank you for your continued
support of our schools. It takes a
combined effort to educate our
children in a safe environment
and effectively prepare them for
the next steps in each of their
lives.

Local Healthcare (A Personal Experience)


BARTOW Many people
debate the issue of quality health-
care in the Polk County area.
On May 16, I was in an auto-
mobile accident. I had no option
but to accept the doctors, nurses,
staff, and healthcare facilities pro-
vided on emergency basis. I was
taken to Lakeland Regional
Medical Center by ambulance for
emergency services. There I was
diagnosed with multiple life


threatening injuries.
It was truly questioned
whether I would, live or die over
the next several weeks.
Fortunately for me, I survived.
After spending one month at
Lakeland Regional Medical
Center and one month at Winter
Haven Hospital, I am now back
at work.
I can only say from my person-
al experience that the quality of


healthcare which I received from
these two facilities and the many
doctors and healthcare providers
was excellent and professional in
all respects.
I would like to thank each and
every one of these healthcare
providers that rendered care to
me and aided in my recovery. I
praise God and thank Him for the
healthcare in Polk County.

Mental Illness Strikes One in Five


LAKELAND Stop. Look
around. When you're at your job,
driving in your car, in your class-
room, grocery store, library or
church, one out of every five peo-
ple you see is affected by mental
illness.
Mental illnesses are medical
illnesses that can affect persons of
any age, race, religion, or socio-
economic status. They can pro-
foundly disrupt a person's think-
ing, feeling, mood, and the ability
to relate to others.
Mental illnesses include such
disorders as bipolar disorder,
schizophrenia, major depression,
obsessive compulsive disorder,
post-traumatic stress, child and
adult ADHD, and other severe
and persistent mental illnesses.
Scientists tell us that being
sick with this physical brain dis-
order is no different than being
sick with diabetes or heart dis-
ease.
Mental illnesses are not the
result of personal weakness, lack
of character, or poor upbringing.
They are not the fault of the par-


ents or the person with the ill-
ness.
Without treatment, the poten-
tial consequences .of mental ill-
ness for the individual and soci-
ety are staggering: unnecessary
disability, unemployment, sub-
stance abuse, homelessness, inap-
propriate incarceration, and sui-
cide. The economic cost of
untreated mental illness is more
than $100 billion each year in the
United States.
Treatment works for people
living with mental illness, and
access to the appropriate medica-
tion and support from peers and
family are necessary to ensure
recovery.
If mental illness affects you or
your family, you are not alone. In
your neighborhood you can find
support and education. The
National Alliance for the
Mentally Ill (NAMI) is the
nation's largest grassroots mental
health organization dedicated to
improving the lives of persons
living with serious mental illness
and their families.


NAMI of Polk County joins
other affiliates nationwide this
week, Oct. 1 to 7, to recognize
Mental Illness Awareness Week.
This is a joint effort of NAMI
organizations to raise mental ill-
ness awareness in every commu-
nity.
NAMI of Polk County pro-
vides support and education to
the mentally ill, their families and
friends through a variety of free
programs and classes. Many indi-
viduals and families in Polk
County have 'benefited from
NAMI's dedication to the wel-
fare of people who suffer with
this "no fault" brain disease.

When You


The assistant young Louis
Parisot opened the door to a
distraught mother, carrying her
small son who had been attacked
by a rabid animal," Dad wrote.
"Up to that time, rabies was
invariably fatal.
S"Pasteur had been working on
a serum to combat the disease,
but the antidote's effectiveness
had not been proved. With noth-
ing to lose, Pasteur and Parisot
administered the serum to the
stricken child.
"He lived, and a great advance
in medical science was born."

Madame Parisot survived her
husband by more than a decade,
"gradually becoming more
stooped, more birdlike with the
passing years."
In Bartow, the Parisot name
was associated with a dear little
old lady who called to ask what
time it was.
To medical science, it is associ-
ated with a cure for rabies.

4-H Week Celebrated In Florida


More than 240,000 4-H par-
ticipants in Florida will share
their accomplishments within
their communities during Na-
tional 4-H Week, Oct. 17.
Counties across the state also
will observe the week with proc-
lamations, community service
activities and events.
4-H is one of the largest youth
development programs in Amer-
ica, involving more than 7 mil-
lion young people ages 5 19, and
538,000 youth and adult volun-
teers.
This is their week to celebrate
their program and thank those
who support them.
National 4-H Week also
serves as a great recruiting tool
to attract new members. .Open
houses and ice cream socials are
very common so that communi-
ties can learn more about the 4-
H youth development program.
Alachua County also plans to
hold an open house for new and
prospective 4-H members and
families.
Many counties including Palm
Beach, Walton, Gilchrist and
Santa Rosa will meet with their
city government leaders to re-
ceive proclamations recognizing
the week. Proclamations provide
formal recognition to 4-H and al-
low youth to experience the gov-
ernmental process.
"Proclamations are a great
learning. tool for youth during
this week," Florida Agriculture


Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "They are able to visit
with their city and county lead-
ers and learn more about the
democratic process."
Lake, Orange, Osceola, Semi-
nole, Brevard and Volusia coun-
ties are joining together and
partnering with Second Harvest
Food Bank to hold a peanut but-
ter drive.
Twenty to 30 youth from each
county are expected to partici-
pate at various Publix stores on
Make a Difference Day, Oct. 28.
Other counties will promote 4-
H in area schools. Putnam
County 4-H groups will promote
their clubs by wearing their 4-H
shirts all week at school, while
handing out buttons and bro-
chures to their friends.
Okaloosa County plans a
similar marketing plan by put-
ting flyers up in the schools and
distributing brochures.
Youth members in Bradford
County are delivering baskets of
goodies to businesses and indi-
viduals who have supported
their program throughout the
year. Santa Rosa County is also
having an annual 4-H Awards
night to acknowledge the accom-
plishments of youth throughout
the past year.
4-H is Florida's only youth de-
velopment program directly con-
nected to the technological ad-
vances and latest research of the
University of Florida. 4-H mem-


Suspect Killed


(Continued from Page 1)

Freeland. Freeland also was
known as Eswardo Rainclaim
and Alex or Andrew Cloxton,
according to PCSO.
Freeland had two weapons on
him, including Williams' own
handgun.
In the rental car, investiga-'
tors found a book with associates
involved in the drug trade, Judd
said Friday, and say Freeland
had drug connections in Orlando,
Miami and Lakeland. No drugs
were found in the car.
During a press conference on
Friday, friends said how much
they would miss Williams.
Sgt. Jim Bryan, .Williams'
super\ -or, said, "I was also his
friend." .
Williams, a K-9 handler for
nine years, was "probably one of
the best K-9 handlers in the state
of Florida." He also was a trainer,
and the department will miss his
leadership in training, Bryan
said.
"I'm going to miss him not only
because I was his supervisor, but
he was my friend."
Colleagues also will miss
Diogi, the German shepherd
partner. "It's difficult. You can't
explain to somebody who hasn't
been there, the bond you have
with the dog. You literally spend
more time with the dog than with
members of your own family."
Deputy Mike Evans, speaking


Angilo Freeland


on behalf of the-Williams family,
his wife Nancy and three chil-
dren, said that the family wanted
"to thank everyone for what they
are doing...
"Matt was a very close friend
of. nine," and was one of the
greatest K-9 handlers and
deputy sheriffs that has ever
been here. We lost a wonderful
father, wonderful husband, won-
derful son, and we've all lost a
wonderful friend."
He wants Williams remem-
'bered as a hero: "He lived as a
hero, he died as a hero; his lega-
cy to his friends and everyone in.
Polk County is a legacy that will
live on."

Using a "learn by doing"

think independently to get them
the most from their experience.
In addition, 4-H helps our
communities' young people reach
their full potential. Recent stud-
ies show youth who participate
in 4-H do better in school, are
more motivated to help others,
feel safe to try new things,
achieve a sense of self esteem,
and develop lasting friendships.
Founded in 1902, 4-H reaches
more than 240,000 rural, subur-
ban and urban youth ages 5 18
in Florida and is active in all 67
counties, and with the Seminole
tribes.
All programs are open to all
persons regardless of race, color,

The Commandant


By Cadet 1st Lt Lindsey
Dorman and
Cadet 1st Lt Renee Lee
Summerlin Academy is proud
to have Colonel Mike Butler as
our commandant.
The commandant is equiva-
lent to the principal in most high
schools. The rank of colonel is an
honorary title given to the lead-
ers of most military high schools.
After graduating from Bartow
High. School, Butler joined the
Army and attended basic train-:
ing then Advanced Individual
Training (AIT). After his AIT
Colonel Butler attended the
prestigious Airborne School,
then he attended Special Forces.
Medical Training (MET).
He then served in the 82nd
Airborne Division for two years.
Col. Butler spent 4-1/2 years on
active duty in the Army and 3-
1/2 in the reserves.
After departing the Army, he
attended college courses to pre-
pare for a teaching career, while
working at the United Parcel
Services (UPS). During his sen-
ior year in college, he became a
manager and trainer for UPS.
When he completed his
schooling, UPS took him on as a
full-time operations manager.
He used his skills from the Army
and applied them. After an 11-
year career with UPS, he went to


work for FedEx.
In the fall of 1999, Colonel
Butler resigned from FedEx and
went back to his teaching career.
At Haines City High School he
taught English and history.
In 2002, Butler came to Bar-
tow High School once again. He
started out as a teacher-then
later became dean and assistant
principal.
In the spring of 2003, Ron
Pritchard, the principal of Bar-
tow High School, asked Butler to
begin working on the new mili-
tary school project.
"We had fun figuring out a
name for the school," Butler
said. "Summerlin Academy was
the best fit since Summerlin In-
stitute and Unidn Academy are
the two oldest high schools in
Polk County."
In the colonel's spare time,
when he is not doing something
for the Academy, he is out
watching his daughter play soft-
ball.
Also, his favorite quotes are
"the only easy day was yester-
day," taken from the U.S. Navy
Seals and "the only thing needed
for evil to triumph is for good
men to do nothing," by Edmund
Burke.
Commandant Colonel Honor-
ary Mike Butler is a great asset
to Summnerlin Military Academy
and all cadets that attend.

Jackets Keep Playoff Hopes Alive

By Outswarming Hornets, 37-29


By JEFF THORNBURG

The Bartow Yellow Jackets
took a huge step toward the post
season, holding off a late rally by
the Haines City Hornets for a
37-29 district win at the Field of
Thunder at Lake Region High
School, Friday night.
Trailing by eight points at
halftime, the Yellow Jacket of-
fense exploded with three Carl
Edler rushing touchdowns in the
third quarter. Meanwhile, the
Bartow defense kept the Hornet
offense.on the sideline, allowing
only seven offensive plays, and
three of those ended in two fum-
bles and an interception.
"A district win is a district
win," said Bartow Head Coach
Shawn Killets. "We scored 37
points on a good football team."
Bartow scored first on the
very familiar passing combina-
tion of Devarious Cook to Mal-
colm Johnson, a scoring pass of
34 yards, capping a eight-play,
65-yard drive on the game's
opening possession.
Haines City struck right back,
tying the game with a time-con-
suming, 21-play, 76-yard scoring
drive, finished on a three-yard
run by the senior, Hornet quar-
terback Kendall Berry.
The Hornets to6k the halftime
lead when Cook lost the ball, and
Haines City's Calvin Fletcher
scooped it up and dashed 21
yards into the end zone with sec-
onds left in the first half.
Bartow owned the third quar-
ter, scoring three times on runs


of 14, 11, and six yards by senior
Carl Edler, who finished the
night with 145 yards on 27 car-
ries.
Early in the fourth and trail-
ing by 15, Haines City attempted
a fake punt on fourth and three
at midfield. The pass was inter-
cepted by junior Myles Strick-
land who rumbled down the side-
lines 51 yards to extend Bartow's
lead.
The Hornets did not quit.
They scored two touchdowns
over aspan of three and half
minutes, and then recovered an
onside kick with two minutes re-
maining.
After driving to Bartow's 35-
yard line, Haines City's come-
back stalled, when Phillip Jack-
son out-jumiped the Hornet re-
ceiver and claimed Bartow's
third interception of the game.

"The kids showed a lot of
heart tonight," said Killets.
Bartow improves to 5-1 over-
all and 2-1 in the district, while
Haines City dropped their third
staright game to a record of 2-3,
and 1-1 in the district.
Bartow will host the Fort Me-
ade Miners at Veterans Stadium
at George Jenkins Friday night,
and honor the seniors, while
Haines City travels to Winter
Haven.

Fisherman and Hunters Face

Harsher Penalties For Violations


Hunters and fishermen who
repeatedly violate Florida's fish
and wildlife laws may find them-
selves becoming couch potatoes
under a new law.
The change increases penal-
ties for repeatedly violating salt-
water or freshwater fishing and
hunting laws.
The law also increases the
penalty for hunting or fishing
with a suspended or revoked li-
cense, making it a criminal of-
fense, increasing the fine and
adding jail-time and suspension
of the license.
"The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) believes this new legisla-
tion will serve as an additional
deterrent to those who violate
wildlife laws," said Capt. Curtis
Brown of the FWC division of
law enforcement. "As our popula-
tion continues to grow, these
new laws will help protect Flori-
da's fish and wildlife for genera-
tions to come."
The enhanced penalties re-
sulted from a joint effort by Flor-
ida's outdoor sportsmen who
said people must begin to police
themselves to preserve the
state's hunting and fishing heri-
tage, Brown said.
"They should be truly com-
mended for their work and sup-
port of this effort," he said. Some
of the major supporters of the
legislation included the Allied
Sportsmen's Association, Florida
Wildlife Federation, National
Wild Turkey Federation, Na-
tional Rifle Association, Interna-
tional Hunter Education Asso-
ciation, Quality Deer Manage-
ment Association, Everglades
Coordinating Council and
Coastal Conservation Associa-
tion.
The new legislation provides
consistency among penalties for
similar saltwater and freshwater
fishing and'hunting. '
:The new law classifies viola-
tions at four levels and includes
increased penalties at each level
forre-pe-at violators. They- ar-:
Level 1: Noncriminal viola-
tions which do not directly im-
pact natural resources, such as


hunting or'fishing without a li-
cense, deer hunting without an
orange vest and violations of
wildlife management area-ules.
First and subsequent convic-
tions result in a $50 fine plus
court costs, unless the person
was convicted of having no li-
cense. In that case, he would
have to pay the cost of a license,
Stood.
Any subsequent violations of
having no license would result in
a mandatory $100 fine plus the
cost of a license.
Level 2: Criminal infrac-
tions that directly impact re-
sources, 'such as exceeding bag
limits, fishing or hunting during
closed seasons, violating artifi-
cial reef requirements and ille-
gally feeding wildlife.
First conviction, a second-de-
gree misdemeanor, results in a
fine of up to $500 fine and 60
days in jail.
Second conviction within
Level 2 and within three years
first-degree misdemeanor.
with penalties of a mandatory
minimum fine of $250 fine and
up to a year in jail.
Third conviction within five,
years and Level 2 or higher -
first-degree misdemeanor charge
with a mandatory $500 fine, a
year in jail and a mandatory
one-year suspension of all FWC
recreational licenses and per-
mits.
Fourth and subsequent con-
victions within 10 years of
Level 2 or higher same penal-
ties as a second and third convic-
tion, but adds a minimum man-
datory fine of $750 and a three-
year suspension of all FWC rec-
reational licenses and permits.
Level 3: Criminal violations
of fish and wildlife laws that di-
rectly impact resources. These
are considered more serious vio-
lations than Level 2, such aspos-
session of commer'-ial quanlititci
of freshwater game fish,, taking
deer or turkey during a closed.'
season or with use of a gun and'
light at night, possession ,of
Three fish in excess of daily bag;
limit of tirut, snook or relldfih.

higher results in a first-de-
gree misdemeanor and up to a

mum mandatory fine and man-
datory three-year suspension of

criminal fish and wildlife viola-
tions that directly impact natu-
ral resources includes possession

tion or theft of freshwater fish-
ing gear or lobster, stone or blue
crab traps, lines or buoys, or ille-
gal sale of deer, turkey or ma-
rine fish that are illegally har-
vested.
First and subsequent convic-
tions third-degree felony -

which carried only a $50 fine,
court costs and the cost of the li-
cense.

the law now will face a manda-
tory $1,000 fine and five-year
suspension of all FWC recrea-
tional licenses, and could be sen-
tenced up to a year in jail.
