grandchildren, Gregory and
Parker McGruder.
Mrs. Harvey-Wooten was di-
agnosed with breast cancer in
June 2004. Her treatment in-
cluded chemotherapy. radiation,
and Herceptin therapy.
She says "Cancer strength-
ened my faith in God," and she
attributes her survivorship to "
faith, family, friends, and fan-
tasy."
"Cancer enabled me to appre-
ciate the little things that most
people take for granted," she
said. "It opened my ability to ap-
preciate the wind blowing, the
birds singing, and the sun shin-
ing."
Like many other cancer survi-
vors. Mrs. Harvey-Wooten says
that cancer taught her how to
live each day as if it were her
last.
While undergoing her treat-
ment for cancer, she said, she
was comforted by knowing The
American Cancer Society was al-
.ways there when she had ques-
tions or needed support.
Mrs. Harvey-Wooten plans to
start a Breast Cancer Network
for African American women in
Polk County to educate them of
the importance of mammograms

cer survivorship is "Cancer sim-
ply means I CAN CERvive!"
Again this year, the rates of
cancer and cancer death are ex-
pected to be dramatically higher
for African-Americans than any
other racial or ethnic group in
the United States, a spokesman
said. The American Cancer Soci-
ety has been working to elimi-
nate the higher minority cancer
burden for several years.
Currently, the society pro-
vides funding for research int9
cancer prevalence, prevention,
and treatment in low-income
communities, and culturally ap-
propriate programs and services
for different populations. ACS
also works to secure insurance
coverage of screening tests and
treatment.
Some alarming cancer statis-
tics for African-Americans are:
African-American women
are less likely than white women
to develop breast cancer, but
more likely to die from the dis-
ease.
African-Americans with can-
cer have shorter survival than
white Americans at all stages of
diagnosis.
There are 20,000 expected
new cases among African-Ameri-
can women.
I Breast cancer is the most
common cancer among African-
American women.
An estimated 5,700 African-
American women are expected to
die from breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the second
most common cause of death
among African-American
women, surpassed only by lung
cancer. -
The breast cancer death rate
remains higher among African-
American women than white
women despite a lower incidence
rate.
The five-year survival rate
for African-American women is
73 percent, compared to 88 per-
cent among white women.
Gene and Tina Spath, owners


of Spath Jewelers, have donated
a piece of Lorenzo designer jew-
elry for a chance drawing during
the luncheon.
The piece of jewelry being do-
nated is a two-toned sterling sil-
ver and 18-karat yellow gold
hinged bangle bracelet with
amethyst accents. The retail
value of this bracelet is $495.
Chances for the jewelry drawing
(in addition to door prizes do-
nated by other local merchants)
will be sold at the fashion show.

4 The Polk Couity Democrat


S,..


On Nov. 7, Florida voters will decide the
fate of six proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution.
The Constitution should prescribe the
broad framework of government, not
micromanage the lawmaking process.
Among the most absurd amendments in
recent years is one that regulates the size of
pigpens. Others have mandated multi-bil-
lion-dollar programs with no mention of
the cost, let alone where the money would
come from.
This year's amendments are numbered
1, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8. There are no amend-
ments 2 or 5. All but No. 4 were proposed
by the Legislature.
Here are our recommendations:
No. 1, State Budget Yes
Amendment No. 1 would limit the
expenditure of "non-recurring revenue,"
commonly called windfalls, on operating
costs to three percent of the budget; would
mandate the creation of a Joint Legislative
Budget Commissioh; and would establish
a Government Efficiency Task Force,
among other things. This appears to be an
effort to bring more order to the chaotic
process of adopting a state budget. It
sounds good to us.
No. 3, Amendments No
Many poorly thought out amendments,
as previously mentioned, have been
adopted by the voters. By this amendment,
the Legislature wants to require a 60 per-
cent vote of the people for ratification. The
ratification process needs reform, but
revoking the basic premise of democracy
that "the majority rules" is the wrong way
to achieve it.
No. 4, Tobacco Settlement No
This amendment is a classic attempt at-
micromanagement of state government by
constitutional amendment. It would
require that 15 percent of the 2005 tobacco
settlement be used for anti-tobacco educa-
tion programs. The concept is a good one,
but this is an issue that should be fought in
the Legislature, not chiseled into the


Constitution.
No. 6, Homestead Exemption
For Seniors Yes
This amendment is a "feel good" form of
tax relief for low-income senior citizens,
extending the maximum additional home-
stead exemption to $50,000. We would
rather see the entire homestead exemption
system reformed, but until that elusive
goal is achieved, this is a step in the right
direction.
No. 7, Homestead Exemption
For Disabled Veterans Yes
This is another "feel good" amendment,
giving disabled combat veterans over the'
age of 65 a.discount on property' taxes in
the same percentage as their disability. It's
another piecemeal approach to tax reform,
butit has merit as a gesture of appreciation
to disabled veterans;
No. 8, Eminent Domain Yes
The amendment would limit the state's
ability to condemn private property and
sell it to another private party. It would
limit the effect of one of the worst U.S.
Supreme Court decisions in years. It could
be overridden by a three-fifths vote of each
house of the Legislature, and we don't
even like .that provision. But it is a good
statement of public policy: that the power
of-eminent domain should be limited to
condemning private property only for
public use.

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

Pacemakers R Us, Part 2


Our Recommendations


On Amendments


In the past seven days, I have.
worn more wires than a bootleg-
ger turned state's evidence dur-
ingProhibition.
My record is 10 at one time; I.
don't think there are that many
different colors of wires; they had
to use the same colors twice.
The minimum was two, which
is what got me where I am today.
In one case, the electrician who
wired me'up paused, shook his.
head, ,and switched every wire
from one electrode to the 'next.
That probably should have.
scared me, but actually, I found it
rather .amusing. In .my. do-it-
yourself projects around the
house. I have found myself in the
same situation.

If you missed my last epistle, I
am the first kid in my family to
wear a pacemaker.
After four months of occasion-
.al dizzy spells and fainting, I was
outfitted with a portable heart
monitor. It had only two wires,
and that sucker ratted me. out.
My dizzy spell on a Sunday night
was triggered by a couple of for-
getful moments: in which my
heart forgot to beat, first for six
seconds, then for eight.
That's seconds; riot minutes,
Bo, and that's important.
Aiid it was not a heart attack; it
was sort of an absent-minded
heart, which fits in well with the
rest of me.
Dizzy spell on Sunday; diag-
nosis on Monday; pacemaker
implanted on Tuesday; back at
work on Wednesday.
As I explained to my staff, I
did not have a heart attack; I am
not going to die. Most of them
seemed pleased.

I made the opening observa-
tion about being more wired than
an FBI informant to one of the
many nurses whose acquaintance
I have made in the past week,
and she told me I had had more
wires affixed to my chest than
were used in the vacation home
that she and her husband had
bought in the 141Is :
This is not a complaint.
Electrocardiograms generally
known as EKGs, but the new
abbreviation is (quite logically)
ECGs are fast and painless.
And unless they show that your


heart:took a vacation for a few
seconds, they don't seem to excite
: the medical community.
SIf they are happy, so am I.

Needles, that is a different
'story. '
In that same week, I have been
stuck with more needles than a
voodoo doll in Port-au-Prince on
Halloween night.
Once again, I am grateful for
the advances in medical science.
The needles,: I'm told, have
become smaller, and the nurses
-this I can testify to through
personal experience have
become more skilled in their
installation and removal.
Nurses are caring people. I am
immensely proud that my
daughter-in-lav has become one..
Hers is a marvelous calling.
I have fallen in love with sev-
eral nurses, though Julie, my.
son's wife,' isthe only one I have
fallen in love with ,when not
under the influence of sedation. If
you've been there, you, know
what I mean.
In my 42-hour stay in the hos-
pital, my roommate, who I hope
does not read this newspaper,
showed his butt to the nursing
staff, and not in the literal sense.
He chewed them out.
I considered going behind the
next curtain and counseling him
on the error of his vays, but since
I had a new pacemaker in my
chest, I thought .maybe that was
not what medical science recom-
mended.,
Instead, I walked out to the
nurses station, placed my hands
on the shoulders :of the two
women who had been the target
of his diatribe, and told them, "I
heard that. Ever',staff member of
this hospital who I have encoun-
tered has been both caring and
professional." One of them came
into my room at the enrd of her
shift and thanked me.
It was the right thing to do; it
was inspired by Father Wally'
Reynolds' sermon a week earlier.
Call me for service times.

If you have ever been to
Watson Clinic in Lakeland, and to
the Pentagon, you may have
noted certain similarities.
Granted, Watson Clinic has four
walls, the Pentagon has five.


The campaign for the election of.a State
Representative from District 63 has been
almost a stealth race;. it has attracted little
attention.
District 63 takes in the east side of
Bartow and the south'end of Lakeland.
Candidates are Seth McKeelt and James
(Jim) Davis.
Our choice is McKeel. (If the name
sounds familiar, there is a school in Polk
County named for his grandfather, who
served with distinction on the school
board.)
' McKeel, 31, served five years on the
Lakeland city commission. He has held
community leadership positions in VISTE












CAvilopyr1ab





Available from


(Volunteers in Service to the Elderly),
Imperial Symphony Orchestra, Merge
Lakeland, ; and McKeel Academy of
Technology.
As a small business owner (he and his
wife have a real estate business) he wants
to limit the regulatory authority that state
government exercises over small business-'
es.
He has sound views on growth manage-
ment, water resources, transportation, and
education.
We believe that Seth McKeel would rep-
resent District 63 well in the Florida House
of Representatives.

But if you're smart, you'll
leave a trail of popcorn so you
can find your way back.
I am beginning to find my way
around Watson Cliric .without
popcorn. That's a little scary.
SIt has become my home away
from home. In one day, I had four
post-pacemaker tests, and I will
be going there several more times
in the next few ieeks for follow-
ups,
If: I have two more appoint-
ments, I'll have to change my vot-
ing precinct from south Bartow to
north Lakeland.

Okay, enough light talk. And I
promise (1 think) that this will be
my last reflection on pacemakers.
Let me say something serious.
okay?
A few years ago, I developed
an alarming numbness in. my
hands and feet. It was cured by a
cervical laminectomy, a form of
neurosurgery that I won't go into
in detail, except to tell you that to
a guy whose only previous expe-
rience with surgery had been
having his tonsils out as a child, it
ivas scary as hell.
Because I went to a neurolo-
gist, and a neurosurgeon, as soon
as I did, I can still run and jump
and play like the other little boys.
My neurosurgeon told me that
most of his patients don't seek
medical help until it is too late to
reverse the damage.
When I started having dizzy
spells- and passing ,out four
months ago, I wanted to ignore it.
My wife and .children insisted
that I see the doctor, who insisted
that I see a cardiologist.
Because of that, I have a pace-
maker, and a new30-year lease
on life. At age 65, that's not bad.
My.point?.:'-' "
Do not ignore the symptoms,
friends.
Medical science can %work mir-
acles unimagined when I was a
child.
But you've got to go to the
doctor.
You got a stubborn spouse or
parent, or even a child, who
needs to hear this message?'
Tear out this column and give
it to 'em.
If it saves their life, give me a
call.
Our operators are standing by.

AMBER Alerts Offered For Wireless Phones


'Free wireless AMBER Alerts
will soon be available for Floridi-'
ans.
Attorney General Charlie
Crist said his office is helping
bring free Wireless AMBER
Alerts to more Floridians. makr
ing it easier for citizens to assist
in efforts to locate abducted chil-
dren.
Crist said the attorney gener-
al's website will now feature a
direct link to sign up for the free
wireless service, in a move de-
signed to raise public awareness
of the wireless AMBER Alerts
initiative and encourage Floridi-
ans to subscribe to the service.
The attorney general's office
is.joining with The Wireless
Foundation, the National Center
for Missing & Exploited Chil-
dren (NCMEC) and the U.S. De-
partment of Justice to promote
the Wireless AMBER Alerts ini-
tiative.
The AMBER Alert program
was created in 1997 when Dal-
las-Fort Worth broadcasters


teamed up with local law en-
forcement to develop an early
warning system to find abducted
children.
The program has grown so
that now 90 percent of Ameri-
cans with wireless devices may
receive localized AMBER Alerts
as free text messages, instantly
raising awareness of recent child
abductions and often producing
valuable information on the
child's whereabouts.
-Every minute a child is miss-
ing is a minute too long," said
Crist. "We must take every ac-
tion possible to help ensure that
children are safely .returned to
.their loved ones as quickly as
possible. This program saves
lives."
AMBER stands for "America's
Missing: Broadcast Emergency
Response" and was also named
after Amber Hagerman, the
Texas girl whose abduction and
murder led to creation of the
Alert system.
"It is our hope that by. enlist-


ing the .more than 13 million
Florida wireless subscribers in
the Wireless AMBER Alerts Ini-
tiative,'we can greatly increase
the likelihood of recovering an
abducted child during this criti-
cal time period," said Steve Lar-
gent, president and CEO of
CTIA-The Wireless Association
and president of The Wireless
Foundation. "Wireless technol-
ogy has given us the ability to
become the guardian angels of
our communities, and I urge
Florida residents everywhere to
sign up today."
Subscribers can sign up for
free text message alerts through
the attorney general's home page
at
http://www.myfloridalegal.com
or through the Wireless AMBER
Alerts home page at http://www.
wirelessamberalerts.org.
Crist encouraged Floridians to
access the site and subscribe to
the program in an effort to con-
tinue keeping Florida's children
safe.

Shands Offers Children's Sevices In Two cato Citizens Should Be Ready For Disaster
r anahneonaisasgy.


Hands Healthlare now oi-
fers children's services in two lo-
cations.
The healthcare system
w' apped up moving a portion of
pediatric programs from Shands
Children's Hospital at the Uni-
versity of Florida to Shands
AGH.
To accommodate the move,
which included relocating 27 pe-
diatric patients, Shands trans-
formed the West Tower at
Shands AGH into an 82-bed chil-
dren's facility, now called
Shands Children's Hospital at
AGH.
Upgrades included adding
medical equipment and monitor-
ing devices, adapting security
technology, improving the nurs-
ing stations and refurbishing pa-
tient rooms, all of which are pri-
vate.
"Offering children's programs
at Shands AGH will almost im-
mediately improve access to
healthcare for the children and
families we treat," said Dr. Terry
Flotte. UF College of Medicine
S chairman of pediatrics. "There is
S great benefit to the ease of a
more intimate and easily naviga-
Sble facility. This also \ill allow
us to create a door-to-door, child
and family friendly environment


[or familiess unti r tLe geII a
stress of having an ill child."
Shands announced the plan
to expand its children's services
in May. The move is designed to
supplement the adult healthcare
services offered at Shands AGH
and strengthen the regional hos-
pital for the future; enable
Shands at UF to meet increased
demand for services; and ulti-
mately consolidate children's
services in a new patient tower
at Shands AGH when funding
becomes available.
Programs moved to Shands
Children's Hospital at AGH were
pediatric otolaryngology, ortho-
paedics and oral/dental surgery,
and pediatric medical services,
including endocrinology, gastro-
enterology, immunology, infec-
tious disease, neurology, pulmo-
nary andrenal.
Shands also relocated pediat-
ric outpatient surgery services-to
Ayers Medical Plaza, across the
street from Shands AGH.
Children's services that re-
main at Shands Children's Hos-
pital at UF include the UF Con-
genital Heart Center, which of-
fers cardiology services and car-
diac surgery, pediatric general
surgery, transplantation,
trauma/burn, bone marrow, neu-


rosurgery and neonatology.
Vacated space will be used to
expand other clinical services.
Last year, Children's Miracle
Network raised more than $3.1
million dollars for Shands Chil-
dren's Hospital at UF.
Funds raised help children by
purchasing life-saving medical
equipment and diversionary
items, funding pediatric re-
search, and producing patient
education materials.
Shands AGH is a 367-bed re-
gional hospital that primarily
serves residents from seven
counties, including Alachua,
Bradford, Columbia, Levy, Su-
wanee, Gilchrist and Union
counties.
Opening its doors in 1928,
Shands AGH was Gainesville's
first hospital and it. has been a
major provider of health services
for more than 75 years. Today
the hospital's medical teams and
support staff provide a wide
range of services, with more
than 250 medical staff members
representing 32 specialties, in-
cluding medical, surgical, obstet-
ric. pediatric, cardiac and emer-
gency care.

Are You Ignoring the Signs of Depression?


It's only recently that the gen-
eral public has begun to accept
:that "depression" can be a seri-
ous health issue that can affect
virtually anyone. Today, we real-
ize that depression is an illness
that can have as significant an
impact as cancer, diabetes or any
other major health problem.
As importantly, we've begun
to recognize that depression is a
mental health condition with
clear symptoms, and that it can
.. be treated. We know that with-
out treatment; it often can
worsen and even become life-
threatening.
Yet despite such' growing
awareness, too many of us still
f' ail to recognize the symptoms
S that indicate depression, or fail
to understand that they need to
S be taken seriously.
While the symptoms of de-
pression can take a variety of
forms, the most common ones in-
elude:
changesini sleep or eating
patterns.
strong feelings of sadness,
guilt, hopelessness, or worthless-
ness
loss of interest in or the abil-
ity to enjoy activities you nor-
mally find fun, such as hobbies,
favorite sports, time with loved
ones, and sex
trouble concentrating or
making decisions
S general lack of energy for
no real reason
frequent negative thoughts.
such as "I'm no good," "I can't do
anything right," or "My family
would be better off without me"


thoughts of death or suicide
Simply having one or more of
these symptoms doesn't mean
you are suffering from depres-
sion. We all have periods when
we feel a little low and things ar-
en't going quite right. But if you
are experiencing more than'one
of these symptoms over a period
oftwd weeks or more, it's a good
sign there may be a problem that
needs professional treatment.
Thn:'s not always an easy de-
cision to reach. Many people fac-
ing depression tend to feel that
the problem is unique to them
and that others simply wouldn't
understand. That's far from the
truth,. of course. Each year,
about 9.5 million Americans
struggle with depression.
Most of us would think it fool-
ish to ignore a physical symp-
tom, such as a severe, ongoing
pain, yet find it acceptable to
simply try and' overlook the
symptoms of depression.
Instead, if you suspect depres-
sion may be affecting your life,
talk to someone. Start with
someone close to you, but don't
hesitate to seek professional
help. Whether it's your family
doctor or a counseling profes- ',
sional, there is a wide variety of
health professionals willing and
able to help you understand and
treat this all too common health
problem.

American citizens are unpre-

natural disaster, and there are
no significant differences among
military, retired military and ci-
vilian families regarding prepar-
edness for disasters, according to
a new survey released during
the annual meeting of the
American College of Emergency
Physicians (ACEPi in New Or-
leans.
Drs. Richard Dagrosa and
John McManus, both emergency
physicians in the military, sur-
veyed people in San Antonio.
Texas, including patients in two
military hospital emergency de-
partments.
The survey results show no
significant differences among
military, retired military and ci-
vilian families in regard to ha'-
ing a disaster plan, designating
a meeting place or having a dis-
aster kit.
Only half the families in the
survey had prepared any kind of:
disaster plan, and only one-third
possessed a disaster kit.
According to the study

since 9/11. it is surprising t, find
families lacking plans or sup-
plies for a terrorist attack or
natural disaster." said Dr. Da-
grosa, an Air Force captain sta-
tioned at Wright-Patterso.n Air
Force Base in Ohio.
"It's scary to think about pre-
paring for the worst case sce-
nario, but the alternative is do-
ing nothing. Yes, the local emer-
gency departments will be there
in a disaster, but so will all of
the people who didn't prepare
their families for a large scale
disaster.
"The best possible thing fami-
lies can do to prepare themselves
for a terrorist attack or a natural
disaster is to be as self-sufficient
as possible. And that goes for
Families in the military as well
as civilians."
The disaster kit portion .f the
survey was based on recommen-
dations of the Department of
Homeland Security and the
Amerilcm Red Cross.
The study authors said intlbr-


mtlion,on family readiness and
recommendations for creating a
household disaster kit are read-
ily available, but an overall lack
of personal preparedness is evi-
dent.
Drs. Dagrosa and McManus
concluded that' more education
and perhaps government subsi-
dized disaster kits may be possi-
ble solutions to the preparedness
problem.
The preparedness survey is
being presented in New Orleans
at ACEP's annual Scientific As-
sembly where emergency physi-
cians from the around the-coun-
try and many other nations
gather to share research and
learn the latest developments in
emergency care and patient
safety.
More than 400 poster presen-
tations are scheduled to be pre-
sented this year.

made possible through a gift
From Hal and Marjorie Roberts
of Lakeland, was announced by
FSC President Anne Kerr.
The Roberts Center will pro-
vide specialized instruction and
seminars in the early diagnosis

reaching, positive impact on the
reading and learning skills of
our local school children," said
Dr. Kerr. "Florida Southern stu-
Sdents will receive specialized in-
struction in the latest develop-
ments in identifying and ad-
dressing the learning needs of
student populations through
both required coursework and a
series of annual lectures by na-
tionally renowned educators in
the fields of learning and liter-
acy."
The Roberts Center was es-
tablished in response to an ur-
gent need for targeted teacher
training programs focused on
professional development in
reading instruction.
The need for well-trainedc
teachers is critical in a rapidly
expanding student population
and especially for students with
learning differences that often
remain undetected by classroom
teachers and-other educational
professionals.
"Reading is one of the most
important learning skills we de-
velop in our early school years.
Between kindergarten and third
grade, children learn to read so
that for the rest of their lives
they can read to learn." Marjorie
Hollis Roberts said. :
"Teachers must learn tor iden-

The organization approved 17

Florida Ag in the Classroom is
able to provide grant money for
these projects because of the
funding it receives from sales of

FSC $2.5 Million Donation

To Build Nursing Facility


Lakeland resident and philan-
thropist Alberta Blanton do-
nated $2.5 million to Florida
Southern College, FSC President
Anne Kerr announced.
The'gift will enable FSC to
build the Joe K. and Alberta
Blanton Nursing Building, a
state-of-the-art facility that will
enhance nursing education while
allowing the College to address
the critical nursing shortage in
the county, state and nation.
"One of the most important
areas where our students are
making meaningful contribu-
tions is in the area of health
care," Kerr said, citing national
statistics that indicate a short-
age of nurses currently and an
increased demand for nursing
professionals in the coming dec-
ade.
"Lakeland is no different from
the rest of the country in its bur-
geoning need for more nurses to
serve the residents of our gro\w-
ing city and Polk County. and
Alberta Blanton's magnanimous
gift will provide students and
faculty with a state-of-the-art
building in which to learn and
teach."
For the past 30 years FSC has
offered a BSN degree at its
Lakeland and Orlando campuses
for students who are already li-
censed nurses.
Two years ago, the nursing
department opened a master of
science degree program in Lake-
land with support from Lakeland
Regional Medical Center.


A grant from the Dr. P. Phil-
lips Foundation allcoved the col-
lege to launch a nurse educator
curriculum track within the
master of science degree in nwus-
ing program earlier this year.
More recently, a half-million
dollar commitment from Lake-
land Regional Medical Center
will enable FSC to add a four-
year bachelor of science degree
in nursing, the first baccalaure-
ate nursing program offered in
Polk Counts.
-The Florida Board of Nursing
is currently reviewing the colle-
ge's plans for the four-year pro-

Yellow Jackets Fail To Convert Yards

To Points Against Blue Devils, 21-7


By JEFF THORNBURG

Despite a career high per-
formance by Bartow's senior
quarterback. Devarious Cook.
the Yellow Jackets dropped to 6-
2 with a 21-7 loss to the Winter
Haven Blue Devils at Dension
Stadium last Friday night. be-
fore a crowd of 3,500.
Cook completed 24 of his 40
passes for 340 yards. rushed for
28 yards and scored Bart:ow's
only touchdown. Cook tossed two
interceptions, and was the vic-
tim of dropped passes in key
situations by his normally go.jd-
hands receiving squad.
"Turnovers hurt us." said Bar-
tow Head Coach Shawn Killets.
"You have to minimize mistakes
against a good team like Winter
Haven."
Bartow outgained the Blue
Devils by almost 200 total yards
of offense, held the ball for seven
more minutes than Winter Ha-
ven. and only punted twice.
However, the Jackets were
only successful on three of 10
third downs. Bartow failed on all
three fourth downs. ending
drives inside the Blue Devil 25-
yard line.
Although the Jackets
marched up and down the field

throughout the game, poihts
were hard to come by. Br4.t'o\
committed three turnovers to
end scoring threats and the reli-
able kicking of senior Brent
Delph couldn't catch a break.
Delph's three field goal at-
tempts, all more than 40 yards.
each encountered issues: one
bounced off the crossbar, another
was blocked, and the final kick
sailed wide left, but not by much.
Big plays were the keys to
Winter Haven's points. The Blue
Devils opened the scoring with a
quick two-minute. 68-yard drive
in just five plays. capped by a 25-
yard touchdown pass from DC
Jefferson to Devon Stewart.
In the second quarter. Jeffer-
son connected with running
back. Dasmon Williams on a 44-
yard pass. to give Winter Ha.-en
a 14-7 halftime lead.
The Blue Devil win was
sealed following a Barton turn-
,ever, when William- br.nke
through the Jacket defensive-
line and outran the secondary.
romping 61 yards for the touch-
down.

know the new crossbow season is
just around the corner.
The new season, established
for this year. provides additional
opportunities fo:r hunters wish-
ing to use crossbows. It also
lengthens the overall hunting
season and extends the number
of days conventional bowhunters
can use their bows since bows
now are legal to take game dur-
ing all hunting seasons.
The added season is limited to:
private lands and restricts har-
vest to bucks only. Crossbow
season does not apply to wildlife
management areas.
The season is between the
archery season and muzzleload-
ing gun season in the South and
Central hunting zones. Cross-
bo,% season lasts five days and
runs Oct. 23-27 in the Central
Zone. .
In the Northwest Hunting
Zone, the season runs one week
and opens the Monday following
.Thanksgiving (Nov. 27) through
Dec. 3.
The most common game to
take during crossbow season are
deer, wild hogs and bearded tur-
keys.
Only bucks with at least one.
antler five inches or more in
length can be taken, and the
daily.bag limit is two. Antlerless
deer may be taken rnly by hunt-
ers holding antlerless deer per-'
mits.
On private lands, there are no
bag or size limits on wild hogs
and, with landowner permission,
they can be taken year-round.
Only one turkey may be taken
per day, and there is a two-bird
fall-season limit. Turkeys may
not be harvested in Holmes
County during any fall season,
including crossbow season.

ing cr,:ssbiw nas., tr t ake lee-r.

Start P a7


Summerlin Judo placed t\wo
players at the US Open Judoi
Championships this past week-
end in Miami.
The US Open is the pinnacle
for senior and master judo com-
petition in the US. T.J. Har-
mnling placed fifth in the seniors
100-plus kilogram heavyweight
division while Head Coach Brian
Gt-rmain placed first in the -15-
49 ,ear. 100 kilogram division.
"I was impressed to see that
T J. was able to: fight his way
inmt a medal round and in the
heavyw-eight division no less,"
Germain said. "I would have pre-
fterred t':. see T J. make weight at
100 kg but he has had just to.-,
many distractions to his training
this time."
Harmeling added. "I'm defi-
nitely going back to 100 kg for
the next big tournament. These
guys are just t:oo big."
Harmeling fought Daniel
Ml:Cormick of Arlington, Texas.
fi:r the bronze. McCormick. at
6'5". 310 pounds, proved to be
tor much for the 6'0". 235-pound
Harmeling and threw him early
in the match.
"I giv~ TJ a I..t of credit just
going out against a guy that
siz-," Germain said. "I'll he glad
t-, .;e him back at 100 kilograms
though with guys more his own
size.
Ger'main showed his winning


form by defeating Blaine Belle-
rud from Oregon and Gabe Car-
michael from Fort Lauderdale.
-There just aren't a lot of guys
that play judo at 45-plus years."
states Germain. "There are even
fewer guys that play competitive
judo at a US Open Masters level
at 45-plus years. It's not my
fault though. I just do what I
have to do with who ever shows
up.
"Gabe was a tough match
though. He's a Fort Lauderdale
cop and a good friend of mine.
Every time we fight we always
give each other our best. We
both feel strongly about that.
"It's how we show each other
respect. No one wants their op-
ponent to lie down and we make
sure we push each other to fight
their best".
Germain now turns his focus
back to coaching. "There are
some great kids at Summerlin
Judo here in Bartow and I want
to continue to build the club." he
said. "I want to do what I can to
help the kids work towards their
next competitions."
There will he some smaller
state tournament in the coming
months but the next big event
%%ill be in the spring in Miami.
The National Middle and High
School Nationals will be in
March.
