Closing Arguments Begin


In Quadruple Homicide Trial

By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Closing arguments began
today in the trial of Nelson
Serrano, accused of one of the
worst mass murders in Polk
County history.
Serrano is charged with killing
four people George Gonsalves,
Frank Dosso. George Patisso and
Diane Dosso Patisso at Erie
Manufacturing in Bartow on Dec.
3. 1997.
Nearly nine years later the
case will finally go to a jury this
week.
Prosecutors have laid out in
progression a case built primarily
on circumstantial evidence, while
defense attorneys have sought to
show other explanations for each
step in the state's theory of
events.
The defense does not plan to
call any witnesses, and Serrano
told Circuit Judge Susan Roberts
Friday that he will not testify.
Today both sides officially rest-
ed their cases and started closing
arguments to the jury. Planning
ahead, Judge Roberts said in
court Friday that she will instruct
them to bring packed bags on
Tuesday for an overnight stay.


Testimony ended Friday with
Special Agent Tommy Ray. The
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement I.FDLEi agent has
been part of the case since two
days after the murder, as part of
the multi-agency task force
formed to investigate the case
almost immediately after the first
Bartow police officer was dis-
patched to the gruesome scene on
that chilly evening in 1997.
Attorney Robert Norgard
began the defense's closing argu-
ment this morning, telling the
jury that when business problems
began with Erie Manufacturing
and Garment Conveyor Systems,
Serrano took "the lawful and
legal approach." The other two
partners in the business. George
Gonsalves and Felice Dosso,
voted to remove Serrano as presi-
dent.
"He could easily have stayed in
the company," Norgard said. "He
was still a partner," but he decid-
ed to start his own business.
Serrano started American
Slick Rail after being ousted from
Erie. His son. Francisco, who was
fired from Erie in June of 1997,
now runs Serrano's company.
Norgard also disputed the
prosecution's theory of how
Serrano committed the murders,


telling jurors that "the evidence
itself can provide a basis for rea-
sonable doubt."
Prosecutors say that Serrano,
who flew to Atlanta on Dec. 2.
1997, then flew to Orlando under
another name, drove to Erie
Manufacturing in Bartow. com-
mitted the murders, then drove to
Tampa and flew back to Atlanta
under a third name.
Agent Ray found two parking
tickets from the Orlando Airport
that were later found to have
Serrano's fingerprint on them.
Each ticket had the right index
print on the back.
When Norgard resumed his
closing after lunch today, he
attacked the testimony of Alvaro
Penaherrera. Serrano's nephew
who told police he rented a car for
his uncle in December 1997 at the
Orlando Airport.
Norgard said that Penaherrera
fashioned his story to fit what the
police wanted.
He told the jury to use common
sense when considering the evi-
dence.
Closing arguments will contin-
ue Tuesday. then Judge Roberts
will give the jury their instruc-
tions before they retire to deliber-
ate.


CLOSING ARGUMENTS began today in the
murder trial of Nelson Serrano 'seated,, accused of
killing four people at Erie Manufacturing in Bartow
on Dec. 3, 1997. Assistant State Attorney John
Aguero ilefti reads notes last week during the trial.

L, City of Barto\w Fire Department will be hosting its annual Fire
Prevention Week educational days on Tuesday. Oct 10. and
Wednesday, Oct. 11.
Kids are scheduled to attend the station's education exhibit

YOUR HOME The fire department, is located at 110 East Church Street.


After rejecting the proposal a
few weeks ago, the Bartow City'
Commission voted Monday to
approve an application Ior the
870-unit Wind Meadows South
development on E.F. Griffin Road.
The 'ote came on first reading
of an ordinance for "planned
development" zo-nning A public
hearing will be held when the
Ordinance is considered on final
reading on Oct 16
The developer. Highland
Cassid,', LLC, filed suit againr-t
the city over the- commission's
action In a mediated settlement,
the commission agreed to set
aside its action and re':,ri.-ider
the issue In return Highland
Cassidy dropped its suit
The development, '.,.hich
includes 200 ton house units-.
has 30 fewer 'single-family homes
than the plan which was reject-ed
by the commission after neigh-
bors complained about th' densi-
t.. The revised plan .aisu mi'ov.es
the town houses farther from the
highway.
The 272-acre development, on
the west side of E.F. Griffin Road.
would have 670 single-family
homes in addition to the town
houses. "Planned developmrnnt"
zoning g-ives the developer and
the city leeway to: depart from
regular zoning standards.
The development would have
some homes on 60-foot lots 10i
feet narrower than the city's stan-
dard for R-1 subdivisions "iin


order to maximize green space
and open space," according to a
staff analysis of the proposal.
The town house units would
have a minimum of 18 feet of
frontage, according to the report.
"'The developer has made a sig-
nificant improvement,"
'Comnii-ioner Pat Huff said.
The commission also.
Postponed again final pas-
sage of an ordinances to approve
"planned development" zoning on
a 172-unit. 72.5-acre subdivision
in C'onnersville. The homes would
have .-eptic tanks, because the
city doe- not have sanitary sewer
line- to the area.
Passed on final reading an
amendment to the city's code
enforcement ordinance to clarify
the city'z authority to fine proper-
ty owners for violations. Gerald
'Cochran said that the city is one
of the chief violators of the code
by allowing tall weeds to grow in
retention ponds. City NMgr. Joseph
J. DeLegge said most retention
ponds are the responsibility of
developers.
SNoted DeLegge's report that
Southern Holdings submitted the
high bid of $303,001 on a 4.7-acre
parcel of city-owned property on
Woodlawn Avenue across the
street from Wildwood Cemetery.
DeLegge said he plans to use the
money to maintain and enlarge
the cemetery.
Heard Cochran object to a
five-minute limit imposed by the


commission on comments from
the audience. "I believe in free-
dom of speech; it's hard to give a
speech in five minutes," he said.
Was told by DeLegge that
the city got a $600,000 grant from
the Florida Dept. of
Transportation to pay contractors
to landscape state highways with-
in the city limits. Cochran said
the work should be done by city
employees.

Journal of Deputy's Killer Gives Insight to H Conflicts


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

-What turns a man into, a
killer?
A journal kept Angilo
Freeland, the man who shot and
killed Polk County Sheriff's
Deputy Matt Williams and his K-
9 DiOGi and ,wounded Deputy
Doiuglas Speirs, gives some
insight into the shooter's some-
times disturbing thoughts, some-
times universal concerns.
The journal and assault
weapons were found during a
search of Freeland's Lakeland
area residence last Thursday by
Polk deputies; agents from the
federal Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms, and
Explosives; officers from the
Lakeland Police Department; and
agents from the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
(FDLE).
The address of the residence
where Freeland stayed in the
days prior to the shooting, and
the names of others living there,
are not being released because of
an ongoing federal drug and
firearms investigation.
PCSO officials have said that
Freeland had drug connections in


Lakeland. Miami and Orlando.
Freeland himself was shot and
killed Sept. 29 by SWAT team
members searching for him in the
thickly overgrown woods where
Williams was killed following a
traffic stop of Freeland for speed-
ing the day before.
Officers found an AK.47 assault
rifle, an SKS assault rifle and a
.380 handgun, according to
Donna Wood, PCSO spokesman.
At the time of the -hooting,
Freeland was : wearing
Thunderwear, a type of conceal-
ment holster worn under clothing.
It looks similar to a nail apron,
with an elastic waistband .and
Velcro, that' wraps around the
waist.
A little more than half of the
journal is devoted to recollections
of Freeland's childhood up
through third grade. The last
page ends in the middle of a sen-
tence, and Wood said that the
pages that PCSO released are "all
that we have." She also said it
was written within the last few
months.
The 15 handwritten pages
relate Freeland's conflict between
serving "higher forces" and
"earthly happiness."
Freeland writes, "The choices
of a man are never easy, at least


for a man that his part has
already been laid out for him bvy
what se-ms like higher forces He
still comes upon thu'je crossroads
Which always offer him e-arthly
happiness or at least earthly
tranquility."
The. man with a calling "is
often tormented by that same
calling . he's constantly being
forced to look at himself e'.ery
-econd of every day and every day
both elves grow strong, so every
day becomes harder than the
other. But who dares refuse that
which has been ordained, only the
fool."
Perhaps one reason he kept the
journal was to "allow my'word to
comfort me at a latter date, allow
me to remember my moments of
weakness and grow stronger by
recognizing it existed even if it
were for but a time."
Freeland goes on to say, "I do
feel pain and the pain is real. It is
the kind that makes you want to
destroy every and anything in
your path, even (though) it is
understood that will bring failure
to your mission and the missions
of many others.
"But sometimes when the pain
becomes, great it seems like a log-
ical way out for that is the only
way I can see. That's the only way


a soldier can see his way put of a
mission from a higher authority
to go out in a moment of bezerk
madness. forcing the enemy to
play the end game before it is
time even though you full,, under-
stand that you are not ready."
This "is seen as an acceptable
way out of the dilemma brought
upon you by a higher force that
has thought you trained'. . 'But
still it seems almost too great for
you to bear and the more thought
put into bearing this burden to
the bitter end, the more it seems
the burden increases. But it is
almost certain that if the neces-
sary thought is not applied, then
you will certainly buckle under
the pressure, or at the very least
allow the madness to come and
take you over. Maybe that's the
way a solider takes control of his
own destiny, or at least feels he
does."
Freeland seems to examine
part of his life and not be happy
with his progress.
"What would express the mind
frame I am currently in? Maybe
the word is contemplation . I
am sure that I can find something
to express out of the confusion
that is my mind."
A few months before writing
the journal, Freeland says, he


was "well read, at least two books
a week, many times that in one
night" and exei-cised regularly.
"Tehe downside was I was practi-
cally penniless. Although the
mind, heart and body w as willing
the financial was just n6t' there.
The financial still is not there, but
now it is accompanied by lack of
progression in mental and the
physical and in this competitive
life lack of progression translates
to regres, ,n.
"That is not good when your
enemy is your physical and men-
tally superior to you. This is just
one of the things 'that bother
same but that can be rectified by
increased dedication."
He also writes about feelings
that most people wrestle with in
their lives. "Human, manly Angilo Freeland

Halloween Should Be Safe And Fur


Halloween fun should not end
with a trip to the emergency
room, which is why the members
of the American College of Emer-
gency Physicians (ACEP) urge
parents to remember safety first
when preparing their children to
go "trick-or-treating."
"Every year you see kids in-
jured while trick-or-treating, and
it's always frustrating because
the injuries are easily pre-
vented," said Dr. Brian Keaton,
the incoming President of ACEP.
"Typically the most common
incidents are eye injuries from
sharp objects, burns from flam-
mable costumes and children hit'
by cars as they walk and run
around the neighborhood. Par-
ents and caregivers have to
make certain that a few impor-
tant safety measures are fol-
lowed as their children collect
their treats."
ACEP strongly suggests
adults follow these guidelines for

a safe and fun Halloween:
Make sure you see all the
candy before your child con-
sumes it. Avoid candy not
wrapped in its original wrapper,
as well as all fruit.
Make sure your child stays
on the sidewalks as much as pos-
sible (off streets) and obeys all
traffic signals.
Discuss the importance of
staying together in a group. Re-
quire at least one adult to serve
as chaperone during candy gath-
ering, and forbid children from
accepting rides from strangers or
visiting unfamiliar homes.
Avoid costumes that could
cause children to trip, such as
baggy pants, long hems, high
heels, and over-sized shoes.
Avoid costume contact
lenses.
Avoid masks. If your child
must wear one, make sure it is
well ventilated and does not im-
pair his or her vision.


1


Make sure costume fabric,
wigs, and beards are made of
flame-resistant materials, such
as nylon or polyester.
Make sure costumes are
visible at night; avoid dark col-
ors. Add reflective tape to the
costume so your child is more
visible to motor vehicles.
Check accessories such as
,swords, knives, wands and other
pointed objects are made from
flexible materials and have
dulled edges.
"The American College of
Emergency Physicians also rec-
ommends children go "trick-or-
treating" at organized Halloween
festivities, such as those organ-
ized by churches, shopping malls
or schools," Dr. Keaton. said.
"This way kids are not walking
around in the dark and in unfa-
miliar parts of their neighbor-
hoods. It also allows for constant
adult supervision."

Editorial


Mark Foley Is Not


A Bona Fide Political Issue


Maybe Demon Rum made him do it;
Maybe childhood molestation made him
do it.
Maybe he'sjust plain dumber than dirt.
One thing is for sure: former
Congressman Mark Foley's career in pub-
lic service is washed up, and deservedly
so.
He was forced to resign his seat in the
House of Representatives when ABC
News broadcast the text of sleazy mes-
sages he sent to.a 16-year-old House page.
You see guys like him on the Nightline
show every week, though Foley didn't
pursue the kids the way the predators on
Nightline do. Unless future revelations
reveal otherwise, Foley apparently never
propositioned any of the kids while they
were still in the page program, never
attempted to have physical contact with
them.
Nonetheless, his conduct was reprehen-
sible, totally unacceptable for a member of
Congress.
What his conduct was not despite
what the opposition political party and
many in the press would have us believe
- was a reflection on his party, which hap-
pens to be the Republican Party.
As much as some would wish otherwise,
the GOP is not the Party of Perverts.
Foley's actions are not a reflection on the
Republican Party, the State of Florida, 'the
House of Representatives, or Mankind in
General. They are a reflection on Mark
Foley.
The extent to which the Republican lead-
ership knew about Foley's conduct, and
what, if anything, they did about it, is
proper topic for exploration. ..
But let's keep things in proper perspec,,,
tive. Every member of Congress is answer-
able to his or her constituents, and while
the party leadership can make life easy or
difficult for members of the party, the
bosses are back home in the voting booth.
In the flurry of damage control that has
followed Foley's fall from grace, it is
unclear who said what to whom, when
they said it, and what, if anything, was
done about it. As is usually the case in pol-


itics and other bureaucracies, the first
order of business is to deflect the blame
somewhere else.
Members of Congress should judge
whether or not House Speaker Dennis
Hastert, the House members who oversee
the Congressional page program, mem-
bers of Foley's own staff, or others should
be held accountable for failure to discover
and react to his misconduct.
But to hold the entire Republican Party
accountable for the misconduct of one of
its members would be as absurd as hold-
ing the entire Democratic Party responsi-
ble for the misconduct -- which went far
beyond sending dirty e-mail in the Oval
Office of President Clinton. Nobody sug-
gested that anyone,but Clinton himself
should be held to account for his activities.
There are plenty of issues for which the
majority party in Congress properly
should be held to answer, from a war that
is going badly to an energy policy that
barely exists. There's the federal deficit, the
viability of Social Security, the cost and
availability of medical care.
The list goes on.
Foley was a sleaze. He's resigned in dis-
grace. He's yesterday's news.
To suggest that one man's misconduct,
however, reprehensible, demeans an entire
political party is absurd.
Hold the Republican majority responsi-
ble, yes, but hold them responsible for
those things for which they should be held
to answer. Mark Foley's dirty e-mails
should not be on the list.

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

Look Up 'Blessing'


On the one hand, it seems like
only last week; on the other, I
can't really remember life with-=
out him.
Liam our first grandchild -
turns four years old today.
Sometimes I feel I should apol-
ogize for writing about my fami-
ly so often, but readers say they
enjoy it. I know why; what I write
about our children, and now our
grandchildren, reflects how you
feel about your own, I am simply
your surrogate.
It was 1:40 in the morning on
Oct. 9, 2002, when the phone
rang. We answered it on the first
ring.
We knew our first grandchild
would be a boy; his name was
kept secret until his birth.
Liam, the last four. letters in
William.
William Loyal Holton.
We were blessed not only with
a wonderful grandson, but by the
fact that he and his parents live
less than half an hour away. We
see him (and them) at least once a
week; more often in a good week.
Each visit is a new adventure:
from a baby who looks at you
with those trusting eyes blue
eyes that can see right through to
your soul to a little boy who is
learning to climb in GranMary's
tabebuia tree in the front yard,
under the watchful eye of
Granddaddy.
Liam loves to help cook. And
he's pretty good at it.
He loves to put on the shoes of
one of his parents, or grandpar-
ents, or uncle or aunts, go clomp-
ing around the house, and
announce that they are his own.
Liam is a big NASCAR fan; he
gets that (surprise) from his
Daddy His favorite driver is N\o
24, Jett CGordon- that i .s his own"
choice. His Daddy is a Dale
Junior fan.
He also is a big fan of Thomas
'Train, a simple wooden toy
whose manufacturer has turned


it into a franchise of trains and
tracks, bridges, books, VCR
tapes, and DVDs. Thomas has
friends -- locomotives with dif-
ferent names and Liam's pas-
sion for Thomas and his friends
assures that we will never be
lacking for birthday and
Christmas ideas.
At 4, Liam is in his second year
at Florida Southern College.
Okay, he's enrolled in the demon-
stration school for education
majors, but he's nonetheless in
his second year at FSC. This is,
after all, my story, and I get to tell
it my way.
We precede each meal at
home or in public with the
blessing, and Liam is given the
opportunity to begin. When he's
in a mood to do so, he thanks
God separately for each item on
his plate, followed by a confident
"That's all."
Four months and 10 days ago,
a new blessing entered Liam's
life, and ours..
His baby brother, a.lvini James
Holton is ili tall identical in'
appearance to Liam.a t the same
age.
One of Liam's best friends had
a baby brother a few months
before Calvin was born, so Liam


O. .


had a pretty good idea what to
expect. Liam is loving to Calvin,
but understands that he is not an
instant playmate. And Calvin is
as devoted, in his own way, to
Liam as Liam is to his baby broth-
er.
One of the high points of
Mary's and my .life was when
Liam spent three days with us
when his brother was born. He is
on his best behavior when he's
with GranMary and
Granddaddy.
When he was younger, the
words Granddaddy and Great-
Granddaddy were more than he
could manage. We were Deedy
and Great Deedy.
In my daily prayer litany, I
give thanks for our grandsons,
and special thanks that Liam was
his great-grandfather's last great
blessing in this life;
Early in Liam's life. Dad knew
who he was, and in his final
weeks, Dad knew this little fel-
low loved, him, even though he
\\wa no longer sure vhy.
Look up "blessing" m the dic-
tionar\, and Vou'lHind a picture
ot a grandchild
Yours, mine, anybody's.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Saved from a Hog Pen and Freezing


I had thought this would be a
dull day, but I was wrong.
I knew Sparky had to go to the
vet for a bath and some shots, but
I didn't know the furnace was
going to suddenly give up the
ghost and had forgotten that Ana
was coming to clean. All of a sud-
den, everything was a bigger
mess than usual.
I am glad that Sparky had an
appointment for a bath because
he loves joining in whatever is
going on whether I want him to
or not.
I am glad that the furnace
chose yesterday to die because it
was still warm, but it is going to
be cold tonight. Rodney Garceau
is down in the basement putting


in the new furnace even as there
is a cold wind blowing outside.
Talk about timing!
Rodney has been servicing the
air and heating equipment in this
house for 30 years and hauls fur-
naces and air conditioning units
around all by himself. He must
have muscles of steel, although
he doesn't look like it. He is about
five-feet nine-inches tall and has
white hair. He says he is going to
retire in a year or two.
Ana has just finished and left.
She is from Brazil and I sure was
lucky to get her. She is so cheerful
and hates dirt. You can tell. She
brings an amazing supply of
cleaning products with her and
looks like she is coming to clean


the governor's mansion or down-
town Atlanta.
I am going to have to learn to
speak Spanish. We do a lot of
pointing and gesturing, but man-
age to communicate. She is a
young lady who has more energy
than I have ever had.
I hear Rodney dragging the
old furnace out of the basement
door. I don't see how he gets
those things hauled around with-
out help. It is amazing what peo-
ple can do. I am lucky to have
him, too.
I am very thankful for these
two people. Without them,
Sparky and I would be living in a
hog pen and freezing to death.

DEP Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month


Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP) is
celebrating Hispanic Heritage
Month by recognizing a myriad
of Hispanic historical and cul-
tural resources preserved at
Florida's statekparks.
"The history surrounding
Florida State' Parks provides
education and resources to ex-
plore Florida's past," said DEP
Secretary Colleen M. Castille.
"By learning about Florida's His-
panic heritage, visitors can dis-
cover significant events and
achievements throughout the
state's cultural history."
Parks such as De Leon
Springs State Park have an ex-
pansive cultural history dating
back to the indigenous people of
Florida. Established as a state
park in 1982, local folklore
claims that Spanish explorer
Juan Ponce de Leon discovered
the Fountain of Youth on the site
in 1570.
Prior to the Spanish settlers,
Native Americans lived in the
area in 5,000 B.C. and historical
records tell of a British company
trading with the Seminole Indi-
ans as early as 1779.

Today, the Old Spanish Sugar
Mill Restaurant at the park com-
memorates construction of the
original sugar mill by early set-
tlers. In addition, Civil War re-
enactments of an 1835 Second
Seminole Indian War honor the
site's historical events.
Visitors also can enjoy recrea-
tional activities such as boating,
canoeing, kayaking, nature
trails, wildlife viewing and pic-
nicking.
Ybor City Museum State
Park, housed in the historic Fer-
lita Bakery Building, is another
state park with significant His-
panic heritage.
From the opening of the first
factory in 1886, Ybor City has al-
ways been a historic Latin com-
munity. In the late 1800s, Don
Vicente Martinez Ybor came to
the frontier near Tampa and
built a city that became the "Ci-
gar Capital" of the World.' Tam-
pa's first industry, the Ybor Ci-
gar Factory was the largest in
the world, employing more than
4,000 of the 20,000 workers in
Ybor City.


Competition from machines,
popularity of cigarettes and the
Great Depression combined to
bring about the decline of the ci-
gar industry in Ybor City. How-
ever, visitors can still visit the
museum that traces the rich cul-
tural history of the area as well
as La Casita, a restored cigar
worker's house.
Florida's state park system is
one of the largest in the country
with 159 parks spanning more
than 725,000 acres and more
than 100 miles of sandy white
beach.
From swimming and diving in
rivers and springs to birding and
fishing or hiking and riding on'
natural scenic trails, Florida's
state parks offer year-around
outdoor activities for all ages.
Battle reenactments and Na-
tive American festivals celebrate,
Florida's unique history,.while
art shows, museums and light-
houses offer a window into Flori-
da's cultural heritage.

ida State Parks, visit www.flori-

- three years straight.
Drafted by the Cincinnati
Bengals as a cornerback in 1969,

career spanning 15 seasons, fin-
ishitig with 65 interceptions, the
fourth highest total in NFL his-
tory.
He had career-best nine (9) in-
terceptions in 1976, while earn-
ing All-AFC and All-Pro honors
'(Associated Press and United
Press International) in- 1975,
1976 and 1983. He also served as
the Bengals' defensive captain
for eight seasons (1976-83).
In, 1986, Riley, a favorite son
of Florida A&M, responded to
the call to service of his alma
mater with 17 years of energy,
dedication and hard work to-
wards taking the university's
athletic program to a higher
level.
As head football coach at
FAMU from 1986 to 1993, the
Rattlers posted a 48-39-2 mark,
with two Mid-Eastern Athletic
Conference titles (1988, 1990),

sion 1-AA Top 20 finishes (1988,

has been'nominated for the pres-
tigious National Football League

Riley is married to the.former
Barbara.Moore and they are the
parents of three children and
three grandchildren.-- daugh-
ters Kimberly Nicole and Ken-
ishal Michelle, and one.son, Ken-
neth II.
Prior to Riley's speech,
PCTSM presented awards for
athletic achievement, commu-
nity partnership, hospitality
service and innovative market-
ing.
The first award was created
to recognize not only personal or
team athletic excellence but also
achievement that brings recogni-
tion to Polk County.
The winner was Chris Cam-
eron on Lake Region High
School. Cameron recently repre-
sented Polk County by winning


the USA Gymnastics Visa
Championships Elite Junior (18-
and-under) pommel horse title
and taking second all-around in
the event.
This 17-year-old Lake Region
High School senior has earned a
spot on the USA Gymnastics
Junior National Team, for that
PCTSM recognized Chris Cam-
eron with' the Polk County Tour-
ism and Sports Marketing Ath-
letic Acl:hi-\ement Award.
The second award presented
was the Community. Partner
Award which was presented to
the City of Auburndale for it's ef-
forts in assisting PCTSM in se-
curing the relocation of the state
headquarters of the Florida
Youth Soccer 'Association to
Lake Myrtle.
SThis accomplishment will
mean millions of dollars in eco-
,nomic impact for Polk County.
Next was the .Hospitality
Service Award, created to honor
exceptional service in the hospi-
tality industry. These profession-
als are often the frontline, the
first people visitors see when
they arrive in Polk County.
The award was presented to
Jennifer Gough for her dedicated
15-year career as a service
worker, the last seven years at
the Texas Cattle Company.
The last award presented was
the Innovative Marketing
Award. The innovative market-
ing award is given in recognition
of outstanding tourism-market-
ing efforts that help to enhance
and improve the Polk County
Tourism Industry and related
businesses.
When the Central Florida's
Polk County placemats, high-
lighting attractions and must-
sees, were. introduced, the Best
Western Admiral's Inn displayed
them in the hotel's restaurant.
STaking it one step further,
they created tent cards on which
they offered "Visit 3 Great 1
Free." For those visiting three
Polk County attractions listed on
the placemat and returning with
receipts or ticket stubs, the
guests received one free entr6e.

PHILLIP JACKSON (#7) MAKES a catch sive players. (Photos by Mike Creech)
despite heavy coverage from Fort Meade defen-


Jackets Sting Fightin' Miners, 17-14


By JEFF THORNBURG

Friday night the Bartow Yel-
low Jackets held on for an emo-
tion-filled 17-14 win over the
quick and talented Fort Meade
Miners in Veterans Stadium at
George Jenkins High School.
Trailing by three with two
minutes left in the game, the
Miners drove 42 yards to the
Bartow 21-yard line.
Fort Meade's senior quarter-
back, Danny Grant, going for the
win, tossed a pass in the
enzdone, and for the second
straight game, Bartow's Phillip
Jackson intercepted the ball to
stop the comeback threat, and
preserve the Yellow Jacket vic-
tory.
"Boy, they were quick," said
Bartow Head Coach Shawn Kil-
lets. "Another very good football
team."
The Miners scored first, when
Bartow's punter Jasper Ste-
phens had.his first punt of the
game blocked and Fort Meade
recovered the ball at the Jacket
une-yard line.
On the next play, Onterrio
McCalebb dove over the goal
line, giving Fort Meade an early
lead.
Stephens' next punt for Bar-
tow covered 54 yards and pinned


Fort Meade on their own three-
yard line, where Jacket line-
backer Aaron Davis caught
McCalebb in the end zone for a
safety.
Bartow took the lead on a 13-
play, 53-yard drive capped by a
one-yard run by senior quarter-
back Devarious Cook. Jacket
running back Carl Edler high-
lighted the drive with seven
rushes, gaining 31 yards. Edler
finished the game as the leading
rusher with 96'yards on:25 car
ries.
Fort Meade struck right back
and regained the lead on an 80-
yard, 11-play drive using just
over four minutes. Freshman
fullback Jimmie Office bullied
his way into the end zone, secure
ing a halftime lead for the Min
ers.
So far this year, Bartow has
owned the third quarter, outscor
ing their opponents 58-6. And
this game would follow' that
trend. One reason is Bartow's
impressive turnover margin of
+10.
The Jackets took the lead for
good on their first possession in
the third quarter. The touch-
down was set up by a 49-yard
punt return by Jamal Darling,
down to the Miner 11-yard line.
Cook tossed his 11th touch-


down pass of the year, this time
connecting with Stephens from
six yards out.
Then the Jacket defense took
over. Fort Meade had five sec-
ond-half possessions; four ended
in punts, and the final one ended
with the Jackson interception in
the end zone.
The Miners did an excellent
job of containing the county's
leading pass receiver, Jacket
Malcolm Johnson, who did not
catch a pass all game, drawing
double coverage much of the
night.
"We made some mistakes, and
you can't make mistakes against
a good team like Fort Meade,"
Killets said. "We have some ar-
eas to work on."
Bartow improves to 6-1 and
will enjoy a week off. The Jack-
ets return to action Oct. 20 at
Winter Haven. Fort Meade falls
to 3-3, and returns to district
play at Admiral Farragut.

short, they may use the pro's
drive as part of their effort to
win the scramble.
The pros to beat are two
young college students who
swing golf clubs so well they
were chosen for the Duramed
