Iraq War
Bowlin said that. situation in
Iraq now has the United States
stuck in a quagmire, and that the
government is currently taking
the wrong path.
He supports plans for a time-
line for withdrawal in an orderly
fashion. He said that the war had
been a mistake, especially
because there is no connection
between al-Queda's Sept. 11,
2001, terrorists attacks and Iraq.
Viscusi said that he agreed
with Bowlin about bringing the
troops home, and used a good part
of his time on the question to say
that the reason he is running
against Putnam was because of
education and a prescription drug
plan. He also is in favor of split-
ting Iraq into three sections for
the Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds.
The Iraq war was connected to
the terrorist threat, Putnam said.
He said that the U.S. is doing well
in Iraq, and that the military
needs to finish the job.

Social Issues
When asked about abortion,
Ed Bowliri said that he disliked
how the issue of abortion had
caused so much division -and


hatred. He said that he wanted to
stop fighting about abortion, and
attack the cause eliminating
the occurrence of unw'vanted preg-
nancies.
Bowlin also said he is in favdr
of limiting online gambling,
because it could be addictive and
destructive. He is opposed to
requiring licenses to buy guns.
Viscusi is pro-choice, and he
said that it was a personal mat-
ter, not the government's.
Regarding online gambling, he
said that it was difficult to control
the Internet. He supports requir-
ing licenses for gun purchase.
Putnam said he has been con-
sistently pro-life, voting for legis-
lation that prevents traveling to
different states to avoid notifica-
tion laws. He opposes requiring
licenses for gun ownership.
He said that the best way to
regulate Internet gambling is not
to target websites, which can pop
up at anytime and can be hard to
stop. Instead, the government-
should focus on the wire transfers
of money, which mus go through
banks, he said.

Immigration
Viscusi said that building a


all-terrain vehicle, driven by Paul William Hamilton. 49, of Barto;ir,
was headed north on South Broadway, when Mrs. Wright attempted...:
to cross over Broadway to East Summerlin, Bartow Police Officer
Brandon Reed reported. After the two vehicles collided, Hamilton's
was pushed over the curb on the north side of East Summerlin. Mrs.
Wright hit a street lamp. continued across the sidewalk and hit this
building owned by NAPAAuto. No injuries were reported; both drivers
were wearing seat belts and their air bags deployed. Mrs. Wright was
-charged w ith failure to yield the right of way. Photo by Peggy Kehoe

County Atty Joe Jarret said
the current vsytem, with security
operations under the chief judge,
are not only legal, but common.
"The law mandates the county

employees should not be delayed

Putnam's Knowledge
of Foley
While answering the question
about online gambling, Viscusi
used the difficulties in controlling
the Internet as a segue to ques-
tion Putnam about what he knew
about former Rep. Mark Foley's
improper e-mails and instant.
messages to underage pages.
Viscusi said that as the fifth-
ranking Republican in the House,
Putnam needed to explain when
he learned about it, and what he
did in response.
Foley shamed the House,,
Putnam said. He also said that he ,
learned about the Foley scandal
at the same time as everyone else,
by watching the news.
He said what Foley did was
vile and disgusting. Foley broke ,
laws and will face charges, he':`
added.
However, he said, the e-mails -"
were sent before Putnam joined :,"
the House of Representatives, so
even if word had gone through the
Republican leadership at that
time, Putnam was not around to
hear it.


fence to deter illegal immigration
from'i Mexico is not a real solution,
and that a 10-foot fence will just
increase the sale of 11-foot lad-
ders.
He said that English should be
made the official U.S. language
and that illegal immigrants
should bN processed and deported.
He saia .hat his grandparents
came into the country the legal
way, through Ellis Island, and
that everyone who wants to live
in the U.S. should have to do it
legally.
Putnam said he is for increas-
ing border security, but he does
not like the fence. He said the bor-
der could be guarded by better
technology.
He believes concessions should
be made for those who have been
in the United States for a certain
amount of time and.have been
making contributions to the U.S.
through labor and holding down
jobs.
The wall .will reduce illegal
immigration, help security, and
prevent drug trafficking, accord-
ing to Bowlin. He said this was
another issue where the politi-
cians in Washington, D.C., are out
of touch with the American peo-

gles or to fight over money and
information.
That is the assessment of
County Atty. Joseph G. Jarret,
who spent six of his 10 years in
the Army as a special agent in
the.Office of Special Investiga-
tions.
He listed that as one of the
most important lessons to be
learned in the war on terrorism.
Jarret presented. his view-
points on terrorism to the Bar-
tow Rotary Club.
Other keys to success, he said:
"Don't forget the human ele-
ment" in intelligence gathering,
and become too reliant on tech-
nology. When terrorists realized
that their phone conversations
were being intercepted, they
went to face-to-face meetings.
America must "deal deci-
sively with rogue nations."
America must support its
allies in their counter-terrorism
efforts.
"The problem 'isn't going
away," Jarret said.
He defined terrorism as "the

dally as a means of coercion."
Jarret said that terrorism
"thrives on poverty, ignorance,
disease, social and political dis-
order, and discontent."
The view of what constitutes
terrorism varies, he said.
"One man's terrorism is an-
other man's patriotism. One
man's terrorist is another man's
free freedom fighter."
Terrorism is not limited to the
Middle East and to Islamic fun-
damentalists, he said.
The FBI's main concern about
terrorists is "eco-terrorism" di-
rected against domestic laborato-
ries and research programs, he
said.

"has a strict hands-off policy in

Keep Polk County Beautiful

Event on Saturday, Oct. 21, from
8 a.m. to noon in the old Publix
parking lot on the corner of Wa-
bash and George Jenkins Blvd.,
in Lakeland.
In addition to tires, residents
may bring rechargeable batteries
that weigh one pound or less,
used ink cartridges and mobile
phones to be recycled.
Residents may discard up to


intelligence, and technical exper-
tise, Jarret said.
There are three types of ter-
rorism, he said:
State-pponsored terrorism,
such as Nazi Germany.
Organized terrorist cells,
"which are getting more sophisti-
cated every year."
Lone operators, some of
whom have been kicked out of
terrorist cells for being too vio-
lent. "They are the most danger-
ous. they are almost impossible
to track."
There is an economic facet to
terrorism, too, he said, repre-
sented by mercenaries, illegal
arms trade, and money launder-
ing through apparently legiti-
mate businesses.
The Soviet Union "forged un-
holy alliances" with terrorists in
the 1960s, but did not target
U.S. installations, he said.
Al-Qaida calls itself "the basic
foundation" and the Taliban
calls itself "students of Islamic
knowledge," he said.
.Fanatic Islamic terrorists
have no fear of death and no re-
luctance to kill their own follow-
ers because of their belief that
Allah will reward all Muslims,
Jarret said.


10 standard-sized tires at the
event.
No commercial tires will be
accepted.
Tires must be off the rims and

4 The Polk County Democrat Oct. 16, 2006


,On Nov. 7, Floridians will, choose a
United States Senator to represent Florida
in Congress for the next six years, and a
member of the House of Representatives,
from the 12th Congressional District for a
two-year term.
The 12th District comprises most of Polk
County, as well as some territory to the
west of Polk.
This selection is a no-brainer.
Adam Putnam, the incumbent, is one of
the brightest politicians to enter thepoliti-
cal scene in Polk County in iany years.
When elected, he was the youngest mem-
ber of Congress, and still among the
youngest of his peers has risen to the
fifth-ranking Republican leadership posi-
tionin the House.
His grasp of the numerotis issues facing
SCongress is remarkable, and his represen-
tation of the interests of his district and of
the state of Florida in general has been
superb.
His commitment to the conservative
wing of the political spectrum is strong
and unapologetic, but he is no ideologue.
He is a master of the art of compromise.
Adam Putnam is clearly the best choice
for the 12th Congressional District.

Early in the year, we became the first
newspaper in the state to endorse the can-
didacy of Katherine Harris for the United
States Senate. We were one of ..the few,
newspapers in .the state to do so. The
press, with few exceptions, does not likely
Katherine Harris, and campaign problems
that would earn no more than a few lines
in any other race become front page head- .-
lines in hers.
The problems and yes, errors, in her
: campaign, have overshadowed what she
Offers to the voters of Florida.
S Like many Polk Countians, we have
Known her since childhood, and have


watched with pride as she worked her way
upthe political system. That is a perspec-
tive that few others have.
She chose to begin her campaign with a
stop in Barto,a and her father, from whvom
ve suspect she inherited her drive and
tenacity,.Said at that campaign kick-off that
her political career has been marked by
integrity ... honesty... hard work."
Indeed it has been.
.For her 'part, Katherine Harris said the
campaign "is not about making promises.
it's about keeping promises.' :
Beyond such popular campaign themes
as meeting the needs of senior citizens,
promoting national security, and fighting
oil drilling off Florida's Gulf Coast, she
said:
"We want to preserve this piece of par-
adise for'future generations." That's the
kind of vision w\-e would like to see Florida
politicians at every lev-el of government
embrace. : :,. ':
We respect Katherine Harris for her
integrity, her leadership,' her political
courage, and her tireless dedication to
public service.
Ours is a voice in the editorial \\ ilder-
ness; we raise it in support of Katherine
Harris for the United States Senate.

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

Decaf Coffee: Another Oxymoron


For Congress: Putnam


And Yes, Harris


For the non-medical- school
graduates among. you, high
intraocular tension is a'sign of'
glaucoma. Remember that; it
could be on the test. ;
"Are you one of those people
who drinks a lot of coffee?" Ray
asked me at one appointment.
"Not unless you consider six
or eight cups a day to be a lot of
coffee," I replied.
*"From now on, two cups a
day; after that, decaf," he
ordered. Okay. Bubba, have it
vour way; that's one more name
stricken from my Christmas list.
Actually, I pretty much gave
up real coffee for decaf, and I
can't say I miss it that much. Now
I know why.
I didn't really give up caffeine.
A new study from what we
Seminoles call The Other
University of Florida shows that
just as there is some good in the
worst of us, and some bad in the
best of uis, there is. some caffeine
in just about any beverage that
has the temerity to call itself "cof-


According to an article in UF's
Journal of Analytical Toxicology
- a term I feel a little strong to
include decaffeinated coffee a
study of purchases from
Gainesville coffee houses, both
local operations and national
chains, showed from 3 to 15.8
milligrams of caffeine in all but
one brand. That one scored a
zero, or what a Gator defensive
lineman on scholarship would
call "a high B."
For purposes of comparison,
real coffee has about 170 mil-
ligrams of caffeine, so on a bar
graph of vices, 10 cups of the
heartiest unleaded would only
equal about one cup of the real
thing.
Going back to Ray's rationing,
I think that means that I can have
20 cups a day of the most power-
ful decaf out there before I reach
my permitted equivalent of two
cups of real coffee.
Life is good.

ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES/ By PAT BLAKE SIMS

That Kissengen Painting


In the primary election, Polk County
voters chose three new judges to serve iri
the 10th Judicial Circuit: two county
judges and one circuit judge.
On Nov. 7, voters will complete the
selection process by choosing-between
David Carmichael and Ernie.Jones, leaders
in what began as a three-candidate race for
Circuit Judge, Group 27.
The design of the ballot puts this race at

the run-off for Group 27.
We said before the primary that all 10
candidates for four judgeships had much
to offer, and in the run-off for Group 27,
that is particularly true.
We find both Jones and Carmichael to be
well qualified. Both have campaigned with
the dignity appropriate for this important
office.
Carmichael is board certified in trial
practice, and headed the special prosecu-
tions unit in the state attorney's office. He
has been an adjunct professor of law, an
instructor for the Florida Prosecuting
Attorneys Assn., and chairman of, the

grievance committee for the 10th Judicial
Circuit.
Peers describe him as "thoughtful, con-
siderate, experienced, very bright, easy
going, very low key, a hard worker."
Our choice. for Group 27 is David
Carmichael.

Preceding them on the ballot are merit
retention questions on three justices of the
Florida Supreme Court and five judges of
the Second District Court of Appeal.
Their names are little known outside of
legal circles.
Under Florida's merit retention process
for appellate judges, one-third of the
incumbent judges come up for review by
the voters every two years. They are not.
running against each other, or against any-
one else. They are running on their own
records.
The question on the ballot reads, "Shall
Justice/Judge ... be retained in office?"
A poll of lawyers indicates that all eight
of the men and women up for merit reten-
tion enjoy an approval rating of more than
,80 percent. That's good enough for us.
We recommend a "yes" vote on reten-
tion of all eight appellate court judges
standing for merit retention this year.

I wish I hadn't even received
The Polk County Democrat in the
mail this week.
It has made me wish I had
received it several weeks ago.
When I saw the painting of
Kissengen Springs 1894 in it and
then read that it was to be auc-
tioned off at the Bartow Art
Guild's Cornucopia artists recep-
tion, I got out my check book,
started to telephone my bid in

it was all over.
Even in black and white
newsprint,., it looks like a real
beauty, and it brings back all sorts
of memories., When I read that I
had already missed it and that.
the auction was to be held on the
Friday that had just passed, 1 was
so disappointed. I would have
certainly found a way to bid on


The painting was of Kissengen
Springs before it became the
gathering place of the high school
crowd, but it really brought back
memories.
Memories of World War II
when we rode.our bikes to get.
there because gas was rationed.
Memories of the big juke box
in the room with the dance floor.
Memories of Glen Miller's
orchestra .and songs like
"Remember Pearl Harbor."
That was before plastic was
invented and half covered the'
world. We had woven wicker
baskets to put. our clothes in
when we changed into our
bathing suits, which were then
stored behind the counter.
I remember the clear, cool
water in the pool area that came


up from the spring and ran off in
a little waterfall into a creek. Alot
of picnics were held at Kissengen
Springs and parties of all kinds
were numerous. It was a place we
could just enjoy the atmosphere
and not worry about the war.
Then something happened to
the Springs and it dried up and
just disappeared. I don't know
who was responsible, probably
some mining people' who didn't
care about'it. What a shame.
If I had been at that auction, I
wouldn't have left without that
painting. If someone wants to sell
it, or if there is another one, let
me know.
I am dead serious about this,
Hoping to hear from someone.

OUR READERS SAY

Viscusi Was a Good Teacher


BARTOW While attending
Lakeland Highlands Middle,
civics/American government was a
required class. While I felt this class
would be a "snorefest," surprisingly,
it was not.
The teacher was new and so pas-
sionate about government and our
country, that the subject became
interesting to myself and many other
disaffected teens surrounding me. He
spoke of how great our country was
arid what an honor it was'to be here,
how people can make a difference,
alone or standing together, he taught
us that we should and could stand
up for what we believed in, because
that is what America was all about.
That teacher was Joe Viscusi.
Several years later, while I was in
college, it came as little surprise to
me that Mr. Viscusi was running for
state representative. Friends and I
joked that he had waited long
enough for most of his students to


reach voting age. He ran and we
voted for him.
During his tenure, Viscusi helped
implement legislation for groups that
are dear to Floridians, working to
improving schools and law enforce-
ment. I was impressed with his
record on environmental causes and
his affiliation with conservation
groups.
As a Democrat, it came as a great
surprise to me that he later changed
party affiliation. To me, it seemed so
contrary to. his positions on many
issues. I questioned him as to the
rationale behind the move. He
explained that at the time,
Republicans were working to better
our state and attempting to bring.
about the same changes he desired.
Specifically, he opposed higher
taxes by Democrats (under the guise
that it was for education). Also, he
favors self-determination and
empowerment for individuals, as


opposed to entitlements and depen-
dency for individuals. As an ener-
getic fighter, his competitiveness did
not comport to the submissive cam-
paign styles of the Democratic Party.
I admired him for risking the ire of
his party and family. In recent years,
he has evolved into becoming inde-
pendent from any party affiliation.
Now, I have the privilege to work
with Mr. Viscusi on a professional
level. He has been a mentor and
friend to me. He is still the same ide-
alistic man who wants the.best for
Florida, who firmly believes in our
great nation, and that people even
one person can make a difference
for all of us.
The same man I met 25 years ago
as an impressionable schoolgirl is
even more impressive now that I am
a grown woman and peer. The only
difference is now I can call him Joe.

Last week Marie Douglas
brought in a book that was
printed in 1913.
It's full of practical advice on
all subjects. There is a menu fi,:
a part\ of 10 with the total co,-t
of $6 99 serving weiners. bread.
cake. coffee. butter, sugar. potato.
salad, and milk.
Can you iniagin that niu'.h
food for such a little amount of
mt,:ney? '
An. other' article ill this. book
had sdme hints fi:r housekeeping
and for the newlyweds. They
said that a girl sh. uld have one
or more terms at a col.ing

What a difference from 1913
to 2006. Today we can go to the

It is usually the case that
smaller mobile home parks may
pay more than larger ones. It is
also possible that a mobile home
park near the landfill may pay
less than one in a remote area of
the county.

used by the chosen hauler, each

assumption that some units will

ing the winter months.

A Greater Bartow Chamber of

held for Leland Family Minis-
tries (LFM) on Tuesday, Sept. 5,
at.its location at 550 E. Davidson
St. in Bartow.
Libbie Combee 'established
Leland Family Ministries, a Polk
County ministry that provides
support to'offenders, addicts and

their role to become more fmily-
oriented, thereby connecting


Citrus Connection, Winter

'County Transit Services and the
Florida Department of Transpor-.
tation have designated next
week (Oct. 16-20) as Commuter
Choices Week in Polk County.
As part of the week, transit
officials will be hosting an infor-
mation fair on Oct. 19, between
the hours of 7 a.m. and 1 p.m., to
promote the benefits of public
transit, carpooling, and other al-
ternatives to driving alone to
work or school.
The fair will be held in the
outside courtyard area west of
the Polk County Courthouse lo-
cated at 255 North Broadway
Avenue, Bartow.
A visit to the Commuter
Choices tent will provide infor-
mation about alternative travel
options available in the commu-

Each year, the Florida Alcohol
and Drug Addiction Association
hosts a statewide conference for
addictions professionals in the
state of Florida.
One of the highlights of the
conference is the opening ses-
sion, where key professionals are
recognized for their efforts to ad-
vance the field. This year,
FADAA chose to recognize two
employees of Tri-County Human
Services, Inc.
Mell Williams, program su-
pervisor of the Polk County
JASA programs, and the Sebring
and Wauchula outpatient offices,
was named the Professional of
the Year.
To be considered for the
award, the individual must dis-
play exemplary clinical skills
and embody the best our field
has to offer.
Polk Sheriff Grady Judd
wrote a letter of nomination on
Williams' behalf. In his letter,
Sheriff Judd described the suc-
cess of the JASA programs, ex-
plaining that while the program
saves money for tax payers, the
real benefit to the community is
the program's ability to trans-
form lives.
Of Williams, Sheriff Judd said
"Because of innovative programs
and contributions by dedicated
professionals like Mell Wi lliams,


problems to resources.
An outreach program of LFM,
MAMa was founded by Dr. Mary'
Holley in 2002. She helped de-
sign a program to educate and
provide recovery and support for
addicts and their families.
Ms. Combee started the first
MAMa chapter in the state of
Florida. Many of the state's
groups are based on this pro-
gram. The purpose of this pro-
gram is to provide competent
and compassionate drug educa-
tion and rehabilitative resources
fpr the addict, their family, and
the community.
MAMa is 'in partnership with


walking, telecommuting, and
flexible work schedules all help
to reduce traffic congestion dur-
ing peak travel times, making
our roadways more efficient.
Visitors to the tent will learn
about travel options and be
asked to complete a short sur-
vey.
The survey will be used to
gain a better understanding of
people's opinions towards com-
muting options. Snacks and.
shirts will be available while
supplies last.
"Public transportation bene-
fits not only those who use it; it
benefits all citizens of our com-
munity by spurring economic de-
velopment, reducing congestion
and fostering more livable com-
munities, said Danny Ours, ex-
ecutive director of Lakeland
Area Mass Transit District.


Polk County has seen a consis-
tent decrease in our crime rate.
We are safer in Polk County to-
day than we have been in over
30 years. .
"Mell has worked closely with
us through periods of uncertain
funding. His determination
never wavered. He has a heart
for others and has demonstrated
excellence, achievement, endur-
ance, dedication, and creativity
in providing services to the in-
mate clients and our community.
"Not only does Williams give
back to the community through
his job, but he also is actively
working with the Homeless Coa-
lition of Highlands County to de-
velop a faith-based housing pro-
gram and in serving as treasurer
of a volunteer fire department."
FADAA also gives a leader-
ship award to an individual who
displays exemplary leadership
skills, keen management skills,
and innovative vision.
This year, FADAA recognized
Bob Rihn, the executive director
of Tri-County Human Services,
Inc.
Neil Dwyer, District 14
SAMH Program supervisor for
DCF, wrote a letter supporting
Rihn's nomination.
Dwyer described the many
ways that Rihn contributes to

Currently, there are fourteen
weekly MAMa groups for the
public; six recovery groups, one
family support/recovery group.
There also are three adult pro-
grams per week in the Polk

There is one program each
week in the Juvenile Justice Fa-

need for volunteers to facilitate

"We want to educate the pub-

"I have found Rihn to be a

ways ready to step tip and pro-

the group (Partners in Crisis) as

"One of the;hallmarks of his
leadership is his constant striv-

most comprehensive services to
local citizens."


XAL.


Emphasizes
Florida School Bus Safety
Week runs this week from Oct.
15-21, Education Commissioner
John L. Winn announced.
This year's theme, "I see the
driver the driver sees me," re-
minds students how to stay safe
when they are getting on or off
the bus or crossing the road.
Motorists are also reminded
they must stop for school buses
when loading or unloading stu-
dents.
"Florida school buses trav-
eled more than 300 million miles
last year with only 209 reported
injuries, most of which did not
require medical treatment,"
Winn said.
The yellow school bus is one of
the safest modes of transporta-
tion for students. School buses
must meet Federal Motor Vehi-,
cle Safety Standards, as well as
Florida School Bus Specifica-
tions. ;
Recent improvements to bus
safety include fire-retardant
seating, antilock braking sys-
tems, reflective materials on the
exterior of the bus, improved
lighting and many others..
Florida's school transpqrta-
tion system is the fifth largest in
the United States. In 2005-06,
15,600 Florida school buses trav-
eled more than 303 million miles
,and transported more than one
million passengers each day.
Nationwide, 24.4 million ele-
mentary and secondary students
ride school buses every day.
One of-.the most important
safety features is "compartmen-
talization," whereby the seats in
school buses 'are spaced close to-
gether, with high seat backs and
specially designed cushions to
absorb' crash forces and protect
the occupants.
Additionally, all Florida
school buses purchased since
2000 must be equipped with two-
point lap seat belts, with more
than 8,500 seat belt equipped
buses now in service.
Florida works in partnership,


.k County Democrat


Visibility

with the Departments of Trans-
portation and Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles, the Florida
Association for Pupil Transpor-
tation, as well as local traffic
safety teams, school districts and
law enforcement to provide a
safe, accident-free environment
for students.
School buses provide a level of
safety eight times greater per ve-
hicle mile than passenger cars,
Winn said.
The United States and Can-
ada are the only two major coun-
tries in the world that provide
purpose-built buses meeting spe-
cial safety standards and re-
quirements and have specially
trained drivers for transporta-
tion' of public school students.
Florida bus drivers are re-
quired to pass pre-employment
and periodic criminal back-
ground checks and drug and al-
cohol tests. In addition, they
hold a commercial driver license
with a special school bus en-
dorsement.
Improved bus safety features
also include enhanced safety and
comfort for bus drivers. Tilting
and telescoping steering wheels.
high-back air suspension- seats,
remotely adjustable mirror sys-
tems, reduced pedal effort, im-
proved diesel noise reduction
and heat insulation are among
many recent upgrades.
In addition, more than 90 per-
cent of new buses. are ordered
with air conditioning as optional
equipment., School buses also
contribute to energy savings and
public health by reducing the
number of vehicles on the road.
Buses are also now smokeless,
producing significantly lower air-
borne exhaust emissions under
stringent federal standards.
Florida continues to make im-
provements in bus safety, rang-
ing from enhanced bus equip-
ment specifications to sponsor-
ship of meetings providing safety
workshops for local transporta-
tion staff at all levels. *


Free Smoke Alarms

Offered In October


Throughout the month of Oc-
tober, the Polk County Fire De-
partment, as a part of Project
S.A.F.E. Home (Smoke Alarms
for Every Home), will be distrib-
uting 1,000 battery operated
smoke alarms to residents in un-
incorporated Polk County.
According to the National Fire

smoke alarms reduce the risk of
death in a house fire by 40 to 50
percent:
The.Polk County Fire' Depart-
ment's desire is that every

forded this lifesaving tool.
"Smoke alarms are the first
line of defense in the event of a-
fire," Polk County Public Safety

Ward said. "And we look forward
to educating our residents about
the dangers of fire and how they


can work to protect their loved
ones."
In addition to the, smoke
alarm, residents will receive in-
formation about smoke alarm
use and care, calling 9-1-1 and
other useful fire safety tips.
Residents are encouraged to
take this opportunity to develop
your family escape plan, locate
two ways out of each room in
your home, be sure every mem-
ber of the family knows the plan
and practice your plan at least
twice a year.

Yellow Jackets Advance

To Playoffs As Runner-Up


The Yellow Jackets may not
have played on Friday, but this
weekend their advancement to
the playoffs as district runner-
ups was clinched.
On Friday night, Kathleen de-
feated Haines City, their last
district opponent, to advance as
undefeated district winners.
Ridge Community defeated
Lake Wales in their district
match-up, preventing the possi-
bility of a-three-way tie for sec-
ond should Lake Wales defeat
Bartow. A three-way tie would
have required a special game to
break the tie, which could have
allowed Haines City to advance
to' the playoffs. ,


With the results of .those
games, Bartow is 2-1, Haines
City and Ridge Community are
both 1-2, and Lake Wales is 0-3
in district play. The only district
games left are Haines City
against Ridge and. Bartow
against Lake Wales.
If Bartow defeats Lake Wales,
it will advance automatically
with the record of 3-1. .
In the unlikely event the
Jackets lose to Lake Wales, their
district record will be tied with
the winner of the Haines City-.
Ridge Community at 2-2. How-
ever, the Jackets own the tie-
breaker on both teams because
theyhave already beaten them.


The Lakeland ThunderBolts
will have some spots to fill on
their 2007 roster.
Threeplayers from the 2006
team have signed contracts w ith
AFL teams IArena Football,
League), Head Coach Teddy
Keaton announced.
Robert Branch, Brendan Gi-
van, and Otheese Wells will all
get shots at the next level.
Branch (#98), defensive line,
6'2", signed with the New York
Dragons. Givan (#44), line-
backer/defensive end, 6'2",
signed with the Nashville Cats.
Wells (#21), defensive back,
5'117, also signed with the Nash-
ville Cats.
All three players had a major
role in tle ThunderBolts being
the number one defense in the
league. The ThunderBolts went
13-3 and were the 2006 Atlantic
South Division Champions.
