Jackets Advance to State Semis


In Nailbiter Four OT 37-31 Win


By JEFF THORNBURG

In a quadruple overtime game
with a nailbiting finish, the
Bartow Yellow Jackets pulled out
a 37-31 victory in the Class 3A
regional finals over 12th-ranked
Hardee Wildcats Friday night.
With an overflow crowd of
7,000 watching at Wildcat
Stadium, the Jackets propelled
themselves to the state'semifi-
nals.
"Boy, that was a heck of a ball
game," said Bartow Head Coach
Shawn Killets. "Give credit to
Coach Bryan and the Hardee kids
- they played great. It was just a
great ball game."
Bartow senior running back
Carl Edler scored three overtime
touchdowns, including the game
winning nine-yard sprint. off
right tackle, stretching his 5-foot-
10-inch frame and reaching the
ball over the goal line. Edler's
score came after Hardee missed a


20-yard field goal on their posses*
sion in the fourth overtime.
"We were just trying to set up
for a field goal," said Killets, "but
the kids wanted it. It was a heck
of an effort by both teams."
Bartow's four first half posses-
sions ended with two intercep-
tions, a punt, and the game's only
touchdown in the first half.
Jacket senior quarterback
Devarious Cook tossed a 16-yard
pass into the corner of the end-
zone, where Mialcom Johnson
turned, outjumped the Hardee
defender, and cradled the ball as
he fell, with only seconds left in
the half. Johnson caught four
passes for 55 yards during the
night.
Despite claiming two
turnovers, the Wildcats were
caged by the tough Jacket
defense, forcing three punts and a
missed 42-yard field goal in the
first half.
Hardee quickly tied the game


in the third quarter, following a
Bartow fumble on the Yellow
Jacket 33-yard line. Five plays
later, Hardee's senior quarter-
back Weston Palmer connected
with Jermaine King from five
.yards dut.
The Wildcats pulled ahead on a
32-yard field goal by Pablo
Anselmo in the fourth quarter.
Moments later, Bartow's Brent
Delph knotted the game at 10 and
forced overtime with a 30-yard
field goal, set up by a fumble
recovery by senior linebacker
Alfrederick Jones.
For three, overtime periods,
.both squads exchanged touch-
downs and kickers were success-
ful on extra points. Both teams
benefited from pass interference
penalties to keep their posses-
sions alive.
And both teams were success-
ul -on fourth down scoring plays,
forcing another overtime period.
Hardee began the fourth over-


time with two runs, moving the
ball to the three-yard line. On
third down a Palmer pass fell
incompplete, forcing Anselmo to
attempt a 20-yard field goal with
sailed wide right, giving the
advantage to Bartow.
The Jackets. only needing a
field goal to win. gave the ball to
Edler. who gained a yard on first
down, and then broke across the
goal line from nine yards out on
second down, vaulting the
Jackets into the state semifinals.
Edler gained 81 yards on 24
carries with three touchdowns.
and caught two pastes.
"I oive all credit to the offen-
si'e line," said Edler "Those guys
never gave up.
Despite three interceptions,
Cuok completed 14 passes for 16.3
yards, and two touchdowns.
Bartow'-s offensive attack was
aided by Phillip Jackson's 59

Council Splits on Water, Sewer


Bartow city commissioners
split 3-to-2 on an ordinance
removing the city manager's
authority to approve development
agreements with developers on
extension of water and sewer
lines to new subdivisions.
Three commissioners voted to
move that authority to the com-
mission: two wanted the city
manager to keep it.
Approval of an agreement with
Highland Cassidy. the developer
who wants to build 1,200 homes
on E.F. Griffin Road, was cited by
the developer in a lawsuit filed
when the city refused to approve
a development with 200 town-
house units.
That water and sewer line


agreement was signed by the city
manager before the development
plan was submitted to the com-
mission.
Commissioner Leo Lonmvorth
said he didn't see the need to
make the change, and that the
city manager, with a salary of
more than $100,000. and the city
attorney should make the deci-
sinns.
But he agreed that in the
Highland Cassidy development,
"the number of units should not
have been placed in the agree-
ment."
Comrnmissiuner Brian Hinton.
who proposed the change., -sid
the city manager would still nego-
tiate contracts, but final approval


would rest with the commission
Speaking of the Highland
Cassidy agreement. Hinton said:
"I don't like [he way it was
done."
He said the commission
approves vehicle leases and other
items of business far less imp'..r-
tant than agreements which pur-
port to hind the city to high densi-
ty housing.
Commirn sioner James F.
Clements aiid the commission
should have the final approval
authority "so it will come hack ion

City A\tty ( George Dunlap said
that the city's agreement with
Highland Cassidv requires the

From The Fort Meade

Historical Museum


THIS EARLY 1900s HOUSE, built by the
W.H. Lewis family, will be on the tour of four pio-
neer homes in Fort Meade on Saturday, Dec. 2, as
part of the Fort Meade Historical Museum's


grand reopening. The home, now owned by Reed
and Debbie Gifford, and the other three will be

FM Museum To Reopen During

'Christmas on Broadway'


DECKING THE HALLS at the Fort Meade, Fisher, Phyllis Norris, Mary Ann DeLoach, Joan
Historical Museum were (from left): Linda Daniels and Loraine Harrell. (Photo provided)


A "grand" day is in the works
in Fort Meade.
Combined with the grand re-
opening of the Fort Meade His-
torical Museum will be Christ-
mas on Broadway, with activi-
ties planned all day long on Sat-
urday, Dec. 2.
Being in the eye of three hur-
ricanes in 2004 did considerable
damage to the historic museum
building. After seeming to sur-
vive Charley and Frances, the
museum found Jeanne too much
to handle.
Four windows were blown
out, allowing wind and rain to
enter from all sides. One window
upstairs was blown across the
room, but the glass didn't even
break. Pictures were blown off
walls, frames were broken, cur-
tains torn, and chandeliers and
ceilings fell. '
In a matter of days, mold and
mildew covered the old house,
and all artifacts had to be
packed away in storage.
Renovation began several
months later, thanks to city in-
surance. Walls and ceilings were
replaced'and painted, a new roof
was put, on, the :woodwork was
refinished, and. the outside
painted. A year-and-a-half later
the museum is beautifully re-


stored.
A number of items were lost,
but Historical Society members
are putting the pieces back to-
gether and planning a special
day to celebrate,
The museum will be open
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Dec. 2,
and outside will be a Motorcycle
Club display and a vintage car
exhibit from Flywheelers.
Barbecue will be served from
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Farm
Equipment Shed.
Entertainment in the band-
stand is planned from 11 a.m. to
1:30 p.m. with the Oak View
Lakes Kitchen Band, Fort Meade
High School Chorus, dancing by
Oak View Liners, and John
Johnson and Mary Wooten from
the Fort Meade Jamboree.
The evening's highlight will
be the Holiday Tour of Pioneer
Homes from 5 to 7 p.m. Four
homes are on the tour: 30 North
Lanier, owned by Preston and
Tanga Calhoun; 424 North Oak,
Reed and Debbie Gifford; 205
East Broadway, Presbyterian
New Covenant House; and 102
South Pine, Mel Parker.
On the same day is the town's
first Christmas on Broadway
celebration.
Activities will start at 11 a.m.


and end around 10 p.m. down-
town.
A Kiddies Corner will offer ac-
tivities for children. Gause Riv-
erside will have a Santa's Work-
shop open all day, giving little
ones the opportunity to purchase
small gifts for the family.
A snow machine sponsored by
the Junior Women's Club will be
center stage, along with a moon-
walk, a super slide, pony rides,
and a choo-choo train, all spon-
sored by local businesses and the
City of Fort Meade, in partner-
ship with the Chamber of Com-
merce.
Other activities scheduled are
a pie-eating contest, karaoke
contest, line dancing, antique
cars, Shooters'Motorcycle Club,
local dance groups, and a cake
walk.
Fort Meade professional base-
ball player Andrew McCutchen
of the Pittsburgh Pirates will
signbaseballs, and Santa Claus
will be in the gazebo.
Rounding out the day will be
the annual Christmas parade at
7:30 p.m. This year's theme is
Broadway musicals.
A Christmas movie with free
popcorn will be shown on the
side of one of Fort Meade's his-
torical buildings downtown.


By LETA WRIGHT
We decorated the Fort Meade
Historical Museum last Tuesday
for the Christmas holiday, and
had the help of members of the
1964 graduating class from Fort
Meade High School to do the ac-
tual decorating.
They put up the most beauti-
ful Christmas tree, lighted gar-
lands around the porch,. the
doors, and arches inside the mu-
seum.
Little Christmas trees with
lights are in every room up-
stairs. It is beautiful.
Lights will be turned on and
the doors will be open to the pub-
lic on Saturday morning, Dec. 2
at 9 a.m. for the grand re-open-
ing of the museum after all the
hurricane damage.
Following all the decorating
work, we had lunch on the porch,


which was a delight, because it
was handmade by all those good
volunteer cooks. Incidentally,
the cookbooks are selling like
crazy. I'm so glad we reordered.
The price is $15 for the treas-
ured recipes.
Volunteers and members of
the Class of 1964 were Loraine
Harrell of St. Petersburg, Linda
Fisher of Dade City, Mary Ann
DeLoach of Lakeland, Phyllis
Norris of Wauchula, Joan Dan-
iels of Winter Haven and Roy
Lunn of Fort Meade.
They really worked and their
talents will be shown throughout
the holidays.
Regular museum volunteers
who also attended and gave time
were Karolyn Nunnallee, Helen
Palmer, Marian Clyatt, Inez
Varn, Nancy Kitchings, Wilma
Coulter, Pearl Wogan, Janet


Hancock, Elsie Barnett, Marilyn
Gunter, Violet Sheffield, Verna
Atwell, Velma Howell, Ruby
Moody, Janet Davis, Olma Hen-
drick and Leta Wright.
Everyone has made good com-
ments about the new 2007 birth-
day calendars. People enjoy look-
ing at all the old Fort Meade
school pictures and recognizing
people. We still have some calen-
dars if you would like to pur-
chase one. They are $6.
We are now selling tickets for
the barbecue dinner for $6. The
dinners will be served on Satur-
day, Dec. 2, at 11 a.m. The holi-
day tour of four pioneer homes
tickets also are on sale. The tour
is $5, and begins at 5 p.m.
Drive by the museum and
look at the beautiful salvia
blooming in that bright Christ-
mas red, set by Tim Walker.


The soul has a taste for goodness, just as the body has an appetite
for pleasure.
-Joseph Joubert

4 The Polk County Democrat November 27, 2006


I; It wasn't that many years ago that the
relationship between the City of Bartow
and the Polk County commission left
something to be desired.
City 'commissioners, by and large,
viewed county government as something'
of a nuisance, while the county commis-
sion viewed the city as "unappreciative of
the stable workforce that the county brings
to the county seat.
Like other municipalities, Bartow com-
plained about double taxation: taxes paid
to the county for services that city-dwellers
already were paying for through city taxes.
Part of the strained relationship dates
back to the pre-Government in the
Sunshine days, when city and county com-
missioners met privately to make deals
that were, never committed to writing.
Given the passage of a few years, with
players changing in both governments at
each election, these unwritten deals
became the subject of disagreements over
S who had promised what to whom.
Those days appear to be gone, as both
city and county officials are seeking areas
of cooperation.
The most recent evidence is the agree-
S ment under which the city will enlarge its
sewage treatment plant to handle the load
from the county's central regional plant
between. Lake Hancock and Bartow
Municipal Airport.
S The county's plant is a temporary facili-
ty nearing the end of its useful life, while
S the city's plant is state-of-the-art.
Under terms of a deal still to be final-
ized, the county will help pay the cost of
expanding the city's wastewater treatment
plant, which is more cost-effective than
S building its own new plant.
Another area of mutual cooperation is
the growing interest in a downtown park-
Sing garage to serve the governmental com-
plex. In a three-way agreement between
the city commission, the-county commis-
S sion, and Bartow's Community


Redevelopment, Agency, the three will
share the cost of a feasibility study. There is
at least the inference that the cost of the
garage might be shared.
In a low-profile but equally important
agreement, the city has promised to give,
the county first refusal on the city ware-
house and motor pool property on North
Mill Avenue, if and when the city moves
those operations to another location. The
land would allow expansion of the county
government complex: the administration
building and.its across-the-street neighbor,'
the courthouse.
To the average taxpayer, who operates
sewage treatment plants is of little impor-
tance. As long as the sewage doesn't back
up into our homes, we're satisfied, and we
really don't need the details.
The parking garage, if and when it
becomes a reality, will be a little more con-
spicuous.
The Mill Avenue property would further
anchor county government in Bartow.
It's a win-win relationship for both city
and county government.
The ultimate winners are the taxpayers
of both Bartow and Polk County, whose
money goes farther when their elected ser-
vants at city hall and the county adminis-
tration building work together for their
common good.

A Positive Influence Remembered


BARTOW I am very swiftly
approaching my 66th birthday in-
early 2007. I bid farewell to my
last-remaining aunt a couple of
weeks ago and have been doing
what we humans so often do on
such occasions wishing I had
taken greater advantage of talk-
ing with, listening to and thank-
ing her for so much positive
influence throughout my life. I
suppose we never get it all said
while here on earth. That is prob-
ably why God has planned our
stay in Heaven to be eternal.
The subject matter I desire to
Share with you today is of anoth-
er person who also had and has
S much influence on my life. He
lived his life never knowing just
how much. I was privileged to

ber of occasions as his journeys

throughout Bartow often brought
him by my address on South
Broadway.
He would sometimes be alone
and at others have his dog with
him. Once in awhile I would see
him with his son. He walked
many miles around our town as I
do now. For about seven to eight
years, I have walked, hoping to
keep in shape as long as the Lord
decides to keep me here.
Over the past- four or five
years, I have traveled a path that
covers four miles and part of the
area this man walked. Over the
past two years I have found
myself remembering him more
regularly on these early morning
excursions which begin around 4
a.m. Monday through Saturday,
and not always enthusiastically.
My regards have gone out to


him on a daily basis for a long
time now and prompted me to
write you so you will be aware of
just how much your dad (Loyal
Frisbie) has motivated me with-
out ever being aware of it. I thank
you because I was too negligent
to thank him while he was build-
ing the influence he has had upon
my life. I'm even considering
adopting a puppy.
In saying this, I hope that it
just prompts someone else to
think about those who have had
great impact on their lives and
thank them in person so they do
not have to write the editor of a
newspaper some day to confess
and ask forgiveness.

Fond Memories of a Bygone Era


BARTOW What develop-
ment has wrought.
From 1943 to 1946 we lived in
the Blanding house at 205 North
Oak Ave. This is only five blocks
east of the old Polk County
Courthouse and four blocks
south of the old Seaboard
Railroad tracks and four blocks
west of the old Atlantic Coastline
Railroad tracks.
The Blanding house was a
large single story house with lots
of windows for cross ventilation.
There was no air conditioning in
those days and the windows
were open all the time.
Lying in bed late at night, a
mournful yet beautiful sound
could be heard echoing through
the Peace River swamps as the
steam engines sounded their
whistles as they approached the


road crossings along their routes
coming into town. The sound
was comforting and familiar and
made you feel that everything
was okay.
This is one of many pleasant
memories I have that can never
be experienced by anyone
younger than my generation. The
steam engine was replaced by the
diesel and the railroad tracks that
cut. through the swamps have
long since been removed. The
swamps that we roamed and
explored no longer exist due to
development, mining and
changes in weather patterns.
We were the last generation to
know the wonders of Bartow and
the surrounding area.
So much has been lost to
growth and development that
our children and their children


will never be able to experience.
All these are gone: Kissengen
Springs, John's Drive-In south of
town on the way to Kissengen
Springs, the Blue Bird Drive Inn,
the Yellow Jacket Soda Shop, the
dances at the Civic Center, the
Ritz Theater, the pavilion at Eagle
Lake, the soda fountains at the
Bartow Drug Store, Corner Drug
Store, and Wilson Drug Store, the
excitement of the election night
postings on a large blackboard
north of the Polk Abstract office
and later across from the post
office.
These things were from a sim-
pler time but are a part of the his-
tory of our town that has passed.
The unbridled growth and
development the. leaders of our
community and county have
encouraged in the name of


progress has ensured our chil-
dren will never be able to experi-
ence anything like we did.
All they can have is over-
crowded schools, houses with no
yard to play in, traffic that is grid-
locked because there was no
planning to put infrastructure in
place before allowing any devel-
opment and the developers pay
for it, and the most serious conse-
quence, a shortage of water for
everyone.

holding a rifle across the lap and

The opposite state of mind is
that of Lt. John Kerry, who
returned with patriotic fervor
from Vietnam to desire a part of
the leadership of the country he
had served (another vet with this
fervor is Sen. McClelland of
Georgia).
But what did the lieutenant
find a home? A Democratic
National Committee which had
no message to give him to carry
to the people to whom he would
be speaking in our behalf in his
run for the Presidency. Thus, the

opposing party found it delight-
ful to put words in his mouth.
Now, today, while not a candi-
date, but hopefully assisting in
the election of his party's candi-
dates, his own party does not
speak out on his behalf at any
time, any place, with any group
of people. They are no more loyal
to their own as they were then.
Kerry has one fault which is
not a fault at all, and that is, after
having experienced so many hor-
rid situations in the war, he does
not want to cause anyone to feel
bad or be hurt by anything so he
would apologize for that which
needs no apology and can

As to his speech, verbatim,

people, when they join the armed
forces out of high school, first,

they've ever made in their lives

not state is that those of this
group that remain in Iraq, is
determined by decision-making
faults, evaluation of capacities,
future plans, set purposes where
education would play a certain
role. This is business, both logical
and practical and this is war.
Americans want to be idealis-
tic; we do not want to acknowl-
edge the basic truths of every day
human action. We like to think
that everybody is thoughtful,
grateful, and honest, but this sim-
ply does not exist in today's
world. If so, only occasionally.
Isn't it sad?
It is'a pity that someone who
really wants the best for all
Americans would have to feel the
abrasiveness of the worst in our
society. I am so very proud to
know that the great state of
Massachusetts has another groat
senator for its own.

Cars must be parked in the of-

take-home cars are K-9 dog han-

Police Chief Erik Sandvik es-
timated that the policy will ex-
tend the present two-year useful
life.of police cars to at least five
years. That reflects the fact that
cars will be used only for one
shift per week, and not 24/7, and
the belief that officers will take
better care of cars assigned for
their exclusive use.
Having cars assigned to a sin-
gle officer will fix the account-
ability for damage to vehicles, he
said.
Five new police cars are
scheduled for purchase each year
and will be assigned for patrol
officers on duty. Older cars will

Tops Tips For Holiday Eating


One of the most challenging
times of the year for anyone try-
ing to lose weight or manage
their, weights the holiday sea-
son.
Through December it's hard
to avoid food-centered activies -
especially holiday parties and
other celebrations.
Tops Club, Inc., a weightless
support organization, offers the
following tips on how to avoid
overindulgence:
SEat something healthy be-
fore going to the party. Arriving
with an empty stomach makes it
more difficult to control your eat-
ing. Fill up at home on raw or
cooked vegetables, vegetable
soup or a small carton of yogurt


or a piece of fruit.
If you know the hostess, of-
fer to bring something to the
party. Prepare something low-
calorie that fits into your meal
plan.
Be sure to schedule some
time to exercise on the day of the
party. You also may want to in-
crease your normal exercise rou-
tine the day before and after a
party, especially if you do over-
eat.
If you host a party, send
leftovers home withguests.
Make the people, not the
food, a top priority at the party.

Ej Team Wins Season Opener


By NEAL DUNCAN
Sports Correspondent

Bartow High School boys bas-
ketball team began its 2006-
2007 regular season campaign at
Lake Region High School with a
49-46 win over the Thundering
Herd on Tuesday, Nov. 21.
The win came after the Jack-
ets participated in two preseason
games; BHS split the games,
first winning against Hillsbor-
ough 67-52 and then losing to
Middleton 67-61.
The win for Bartow (1-0) gave
Coach Terrance McGriff his first
win against Lake Region in nine
attempts. The Jackets were 19


for 51 from the field and three
for six from the three-point line.
Bartow out rebounded Lake
Region 36 to 20 with eight of
those rebounds coming on the of-
fensive end.
Leading the Jackets were:
Vincent Reid with 10 points and
13 rebounds; Richard Murvin
with eight points and one re-
bound; Weedlens Beauvil eight
points and two rebounds; Jere-
miah Manning with eight points
and six rebounds; Julius Thomp-
son with eight points and four
rebounds.
"We are such a young team,
we really needed this win for our
confidence," said Head Coach


Terrance McGriff.
"We had senior Julius Thomp-
son playing in a limited role be-
cause of an injury. We also had
senior Jeremiah Manning in foul
trouble for most of the game, so
for our younger players this was
a big win.
"We have four freshmen,
three sophomores and two jun-
iors (one out with an injury), so
game experience will come, and
we will get better every game,'
McGriff added.
The Jackets will take to the
court again on Tuesday, Nov. 28,
at Lake Wales. The junior var-
sity game will begin at 6 p.m.
with the varsity following at 7:30
p.m.

Lakeland Flying


Tigers Set
SThe Lakeland Flying Tigers
era officially began Nov. 11 when
the team unveiled its new name
and logo at a press conference at
Tigertown on Veteran's Day.
The team name changed from
the Lakeland Tigers, the name
the team 'has used since 1967.
The Flying Tigers are a Class A
affiliate of the Detroit Tigers and
2007 will mark the 41st season
as a Tigers' affiliate, the second
longest affiliation in all of Minor
League Baseball.
The 2007 season also will
mark Lakeland's 55th season in
the Florida State League (FSL).
Lakeland is an original member
of the FSL which was estab-
lished.in 1919.
Tigertown is the site of the
Lakeland School of Aeronautics.
Between 1940 and 1945, more
than 8,000 American and British
pilots trained there for World
War II combat.
The taxiway to the main run-
way is still present at Tigertown
and separates Joker Marchant
Stadium and the Tigers' minor
league complex. Hangers that
protected aircraft still stand to-
day and are used by the City of
Lakeland Parks & Recreation


For Battle
Department.
The "Flying Tigers" were
American fighter pilots who pro-
tected China in early 1942.
These heroic pilots painted red
shark teeth near the nose of
their P-40 Warhawk fighter
planes and this became their
trademark.
The new logo features the
head of a fang-bearing Tiger sur-
rounded by a pilot's wings. The
uniforms will feature a squadron
patch with a P-40 and the words
"Tigertown USA" worn on the
sleeve.
Instead of traditional gray,
the Flying Tigers' road uniforms
are military tan.
Managers' caps will display
special "Scrambled Palms," des-.
ignating their status as "com-
mander" of the team.
Lakeland opens the 2007 sea-
son on Thursday, April 5, at 7
p.m. against the Tampa Yankees
at Joker Marchant Stadium.
This will mark the Flying Tigers
inaugural game.
Joker Marchant Stadium is
located at 2301 Lakeland Hills
Blvd.
For more information, call the
Tigers at 686-8075.
