Garrett Not In Trouble


With PCSO, Judd Says


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Sheriff's Lt. Brian Garrett is
not in trouble with Sheriff Grady
,Judd foir speaking out at a public
hearing on a housing develop-
ment near his home, and that
word comes from Judd himself.
"He is in absolutely no trouble
with the sheriff's office." Judd
said.
Last Monday. Garrett told the
city commission that Police Chief
Erik Sandvik had complained to
the sheriff after Garrett. who
lives just off E.F. Griffin Road,
had spoken out at a Nov. 6 public
hearing in opposition to the Wind
Meadows South subdivision.
Garrett asked if the city "is going
to conduct business by intimida-
tion or threats."
Sandvik acknowledged that he
had spoken to Judd, and said he
believed that Garrett had "dispar-
aged the police department and
me and the city manager" when
he said the department did not
have enough manpower to
respond to calls on the Clear
Springs Land Co. property.
Because of this. Garrett said, it is
unrealistic to expect the BPD to
be ahlj to adequately police 870
more homes on E.F. Griffin Road.
In the days following Garrett's
*f \___________


reporting of the incident to the
commission last Monday, rumors
circulated that the deputy was in
serious trouble with the sheriff.
Absolutely untrue, Judd said.
Under Florida law, deputies
work at the pleasure of the sher-
iff, and can be fired for any rea-
son, or for no reason.
After Sandvik contacted him,
Judd instructed Rick Sloan, chief
of the department of law enforce-
ment, to talk to Garrett. and Judd
later talked to Garrett himself.
"I said he had not only the
right but the obligation to defend
his position and his community's
position in this conflict." Judd
said.
"But my request was that he
speak as an individual and not as
a representative of the sheriff's
office, and make sure that the
people know that his positions
and statements reflect his views
as an individual and not as a
member of the sheriff's office.
"My suggestion was that any
law enforcement research be pro-
vided by another person, and that
he should stick with traffic issues,
growth issues, community issues.
"He can't hide the fact that he
works for the sheriff's office."
He said that Garrett told him
that when he spoke to the com-
mission, he made it clear that he


was speaking only for himself,
and not for the PCSO.
Judd declined to go into details
about his conversation with
Sandvik, whom he said was the
only person who contacted him
about Garrett'., comments at the
public hearing.
"I'm not going to divulge our
private conversation," he said.
"I didn't get any indication this
was retaliation."
As to Garrett's comments that
the sheriff's office responds to
calls for service on Clear Springs
Land Co. property, Judd said:
"It's my duty and responsibili-
ty to provide service and assis-
tance to all the people in the
county. The Bartow Police Dept.
asks for our assistance and we
ask for their assistance.
"The chief had a conversation
with me and I reiterated to him
that we are there to assist the
Bartow Police Dept. any time
they need assistance, and we're
glad to do it.
"I have the highest respect for
the Bartow Police Dept. and for
the officers who work there.
"I don't want this growth con-
flict (on E.F. Griffin Road) to cre-
ate an environment in which the
Bartow Police Dept. would be

State regulators and at least
three members of the Bartow city
commission share doubts about
the wisdom of allowing homes
within the city limits to have sep-
tic tanks, rather than requiring
them to be connected to sanitary
seWer lines.
But in an effort to move toward
approval of a 172-home subdivi-
sion on 72.5 acres in Connersville,
city commissioners and the
Florida Dept. of Community
Affairs have reached an uneasy
compromise to allow "advanced
on-site treatment methods"
instead of conventional septic
tanks.
Planning Dir. Robert Wiegers
described the settlement reached
with DCA as "an agreement to
disagree."
The DCA, which exercises over-
sight over city and county growth
management programs, previous-
ly had ruled that allowing septic
tanks on the Connersville devel-
opment violates the city's own
comprehensive plan. That plan
allows septic tanks only as a tem-
porary measure, and only in areas
not served by the city's sewage
collection and treatment system.
Further, the state agency said
that the type of soil on the
Connersville property was not
suitable for septic tanks.
Wiegers said that the develop-
er's engineer concluded that the
soil was appropriate for septic
tanks, based on soil borings. He
said the DCA's decision was based
on soil maps of the area, and not
on tests of the site.
The proposed development on
Gandy Cemetery Road would he

Inc. Approval of a "planned devel-
opment" on the site has been
stalled for months by the DCA's
reluctance to allow septic tanks

efits.
One month premium is gener-
ally between $4 million and $5
million.
The sole objection was that of
Dr. Brenda Reddout, who said
that she did not want the money
saved to be specifically marked
for employee benefits.
'What are the unfunded needs
of the school district?" she asked.
"The school employees already
get a benefit health insurance.
I don't think they should neces-
sarily get another benefit on top
of that, especially considering the
other needs of the district."
Dr. Gall McKinzie, superin-


tendent of schools, said that
because the money was saved by
the employees keeping them-
selves healthy and not filing
claims, the money should go back
to the employees in some fashion.
Marianne Capoziello, presi-
dent of the Polk Education Assn..
said that PEA had not been the
source of suggesting the premi-
um holiday. The unions support-
ed it, but only as long as this one-
time holiday did not force the dis-
trict to later raise the co-pay in
the health plan. she said.
The measure for the premium
holiday with savings used for
employee benefits passed 6-to-1,
with Dr. Reddout dissenting.

Local 4-H to Benefit From Movie

In the movie Fern, played by
Dakota Fanning, wears a 4-H T-
shirt and takes her pig, Wilbur,
to the 4-H Fair.
As the only educational youth
development program connected
to Florida's land-grant colleges
and universities, 4-H encourages
young people to use their'head,
heart, hands and health to be-
come strong, confident and con-
tributing citizens.
"The 4-H emblem will be
prominent in the movie," said
Nicole Walker, Polk County Ex-
Stension 4-H Agent. "I hope that
it will encourage kids, parents
and communities to find out
what-4-H is now, in 2006, and
discover how participating can
be a positive part of their lives."
In "Charlotte's Web," Fern
uses her head, heart, hands and
health to encourage family and
friends to save Wilbur from the
smokehouse. Fern's hard work

and dedication to Wilbur show
the level of commitment many
young people make in 4-H,
whether they are raising a pig,
designing a website or partici-
pating in local community serv-
ice activities.
Fern exemplifies the essen-
tial elements of 4-H youth devel-
opment belonging, mastery,
independence and generosity -
as she helps save Wilbur and
brings the community together,
Walker said.
"I'm very excited about the
movie," said Etta Robinson, a
Polk County 4-IH volunteer club
leader for the Green Swamp 4-H
Club. "It's a fantastic way for
movie studios and 4-H to work
together."
The movie opens in theaters

tickets will be available for pur-
chase now through Jan. 31. To

er's zip code, a $1 donation will
be made by Hollywood Movie
Money to the Florida 4-H Foun-
dation.
The Foundation supports local


4-H programs throughout the
state through special program
grants, teen leadership events,
scholarships and national award
trips. Polk County 4-H'ers bene-
fit from the foundation's efforts
by winning scholarships, attend-
ing Florida 4-H Congress, a com-
petitive and leadership learning
event, and participating in Flor-
ida 4-H Legislature, a civic
learning program held annually
in Tallahassee.
"This partnership will help
youth in your state," Robinson
said. "This is the first time some-
thing like this has been done for
4-H."
In 4-H, youth have fun and
make friends through a commu-
nity of young people across
America who are learning lead-
ership, citizenship and life skills.

land grant universities to pro-
vide more than 6-.5 million young
people hands-on experiences in

Don't Let Lowest Common


Denominator Be the Standard


After more than a year of hearing from
all interested parties on what Bartow's
growth objectives should be and how to
achieve them, city commissioners and zon-
ing board members are poised to begin
making decisions.
We urge the commission to establish one
standard up front:
Do not settle for the lowest common
denominator.
Much of the mess that Bartow has gotten
itself into with high density development
in rural areas which have inadequate roads
and no sewage treatment has been based
on the fact that, "Well, we already allowed
it down the road."
It is an argument that teachers from
kindergarten forward urge us not to suc-
cumb to:
When Alvin says he dipped Susie's pig-
tails in the inkwell because Tommy did it
last week, -the teacher's response is, "If
Tommy jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge,
would you jump off the Brooklyn Bridge,
too?"
The fact that a poor decision has been
made once, or twice, or a dozen times,
should not become the justification for
repeating it over and over again.
It is up to the city commission, with
input from the zoning board, to decide
what decisions were poor ones, then
resolve not to keep repeating them.
We see three issues as being of para-
mount importance:
A badly flawed definition of "low den-
sity residential."
An equally flawed definition of "com-
patibility."
A policy that is either poorly worded
or poorly enforced that declares that septic
tanks are only a temporary solution for
disposal of sewage wastes within the city
limits.

Bartow's development code defines up
to six homes per acre as "low density resi-
dential." The planning director has said
repeatedly that it is impossible to build
more than about three-and-a-half homes
per acre under the city's most dense sin-
gle-family zoning classification, R-1.
The development code, in unmistakable
language, declares that a development is
defined as "low density" if it is nearly
twice as dense as-the zoning code allows.
This makes, no sense.
The city should decide what really is
"low density development," and define it
accordingly. As a starting point, we would
suggest that three homes per acre or less
would make more sense than six homes
per acre.
And if Bartow wants to allow subdivi-


sions with six homes per acre, at least come
up with a term for it that makes sense.

The definition of "compatibility" in the
code talks about uses that can "coexist."
Clearly this is the lowest common
denominator.
Homes in Bartow "coexist" with a land-
fill in the northwest and the county jail in
the east, because the city code allows them.
They "coexist" in large part because home-
owners can't do anything about it. They
choose not to sell their homes and leave,
but not because the jail and the landfill are
appropriate neighbors.
We suggest a powerful yet simple defin-
ition of compatibility:
Any proposed zoning designation must
be equal to or higher than the adjoining
property. That would mean that a develop-
er wanting to build next to an R-1-A subdi-
vision would have to meet at least R-1-A
standards; not R-1, not commercial, not
anything less desirable than R-1-A.
To do otherwise encourages the "lowest
common denominator" standard that has
become widely advocated in Bartow.

The septic tank solution is even simpler:
ban them within the city limits.
Cities build sewage treatment plants
because they are a more environmentally
responsible way of disposing of sewage
wastes. If this were not so, it would make
no sense for municipalities to spend mil-
lions of dollars on them.
While the definition of "urban sprawl"
lies largely in the eye of the beholder, there
cannot be a clearer definition of the term
than allowing development in areas where
basic municipal services, including sewer
lines, are not available.

There are many ways in which Bartow's
growth management policies and code can
be improved; three of the most important,
we believe, are realistic definitions of "low
density development" and "compatibility"
and banning of septic tanks within the city
limits.

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

Kinder, Gentler, and Fairer


They don't teach stuff like
this in journalism school, but I
subscribe to a "kinder, gentler"
approach to our craft.
Actually, I like to think of it
as a more basic concept fair-
ness but I will acknowledge
that it is not the aggressive
stuff from Reporting 101.
,I tend to give people the
benefit of the doubt, including
those charged with a crime.
In our stories, we try to
make it clear that the allega-
tions against them are made by
police officers, and attribute
those .allegations, rather than
assuming guilt. 'Courts will
decide guilt or innocence, not
the police, not the press.
We also try to iniimize the
details of more tawdry crimes,
particularly 'those of a sexual
nature. We try to report only
enough to show why the sus-
pect was arrested, without
going into the clinical detail
that will come out in court but
that you might prefer not to
have in the copy of our news-
paper that we hope you make
available to your children or
grandchildren.
My instructions to our staff:
if you would be embarrassed
to read your story aloud at a
staff meeting, you've gone too
far.
'It is against that philosophi-
cal background that I. take
exception .to reports that
"drinking was believed to be a
factor" in a traffic accident.


That statement, commonly
voiced by law enforcement
officers and commonly report-
ed in the press and on televi-
sion, as recently as last week,
casts a shadow of suspicion
over every.dfiver. It is rare that
an accident involves two
drunk drivers.
Just as unfairly,' it makes an
accusation that the officer is
unwilling or unable to support
by issuing. a citation.
SIn some instances, a blood
sample has been drawn but not
processed; in other cases, some
circumstance may .have pre-
vented'the drawing of a blood
sample.
But by reporting that "drink-
ing was believed to be a fac-
tor," the press has cavalierly
cast aside that presumption of
innocence to which every per-
son is entitled in this country.
And in this context, it's not
merely a presumption of inno-
cence of a charge filed against
him; it's a presumption of
innocence when he hasn't even
been charged.
You think he was drunk,
Officer? File the charge, and1
we'll report it.
The most reprehensible,
example I can recall was in one
of those terrible accidents a few
years ago in which several
teenagers were killed.
A Tampa television news-
caster made the comment:
"Police don't know if they
had been drinking, but after all


... they were teenagers."
What?
Being a teenager is prina facie
evidence of having been drunk?
I can think of several stereo-
types relating to race or reli-:
gion that would get a reporter:
fired and probably run out of
town on a rail.
"Police don't know if the bur-
glar was a (enter the
minority of your choice), but the
only thing missing was'
(insert the item of
merchandise of your choice)." .,
If this is too subtle, ask me lo
fill in the blanks next time yo~
see me, and I'll give you a vari-
ety of possible choices.
But it's okay to make ai~
assumption because the driver
was a kid, he was probably
drunk?
I don't fault law enforce-
ment officers for their use .: f
the "drinking was a factor,.
comment; they're reporting
what they suspect, and that's a
lot of what cops do. It's up {8
the courts to decide if their su's
picions were accurate.
I do fault journalists for
blithely reporting such cont'
ments, without considering the
accuracy of the accusation.
Once we've reported it, 'the
finding of the court does not,
fully undo the damage.
And assuming the driv.ek
must have drunk because he
was a teenager?
Tell me again about the gen-.
eration gap...
I,'

Today's "Adventures and
Misadventures" is a first for Pat
Blake Sims: a guest column written
by, in her words, her termite man.

By GREG WHEELS

It was' somewhat unsettling
when we first discovered the true
nature of the events that were
happening in our house during
the night while we were asleep as
well as in the day while we were
away at work.
Upon reflection, it started sev-
eral years ago, but we were busy
with our lives and really did not
notice. I guess that I should have
recognized that something
strange was going on, and per-
haps unconsciously I did, but it
was such an unusual phenome-
non that I totally ignored the
truth for a long time.
It is a rare occasion in our
house when the television is not
on during the night; we usually
try to find something onr one of
the history or science channels to
lull us to sleep. This seems to
work better O'an any unnatural
sleeping pills.
"And in 1492 Columbus land-
ed in the New World. Little did


the Aztecs realize the destruction
that these light skinned men from
Europe .."
Wait; wake up!
Looking back, I now realize
that I woke up far too often to the
Animal Planet channel. I just
thought that I had rolled over on
the buttons and accidentally
changed the channel as I tossed
and turned in my sleep. I should
have noticed how my cat, Bob
Stalker, was paying attention to
the bears or the monkeys.
When we leave for work, one
of us usually turns the television
off and turns the radio on. This is
for the sake of resting the TV and
more importantly, keeping the
animals company while we are
gone; at least Wifey Poph feels
that way, and far be it for me to
rain on her parade.
I should have noticed the
many days when I got home from
work that the stereo was off and
the TV was on. I just figured that
Wifey Pooh had left it on and she
thought that I was the culprit.
I believe that it was the aroma
of freshly cooked popcorn that
gave it away. When I came home
last Friday, the television was on
TV Land. Lassie 'was running for


help because poor little Timriy
was trapped in a cave by a moun-
tain lion. What a silly show that
was. Of course, I loved'it when I
was a boy.
Apparently Stalker does tob.
As I walked up the sidewalk to
our house, I couldhear a Lassie
barking 1pudly from the Ty
speakers. The smell of popcorn
alerted my senses. What is going
on? I asked myself.
Ever so carefully I tiptoed onto
the front porch. I guess that they
did not hear me. They were root-
ing for the lion. When I opened
the door, popcorn and cats went
flying everywhere.
The cats, at least six of them df
various colors, went flying from
my sofa, into the'kitchen, anti
outside through the cat door.
Yes, I know that this is unbe-
lievable, but I swear to you on a
stack of cats that it is the whole
truth and nothing but the truth.,'
Bob Stalker acted like she was
as surprised as we were, and:I
have not come home to a house
full of cats eating popcorn again.
But in the wee hours of the
night, while I pretend to sleep, I
have seen her change the channel
with her little paw.

Sheriff Speaks to Committee of 100


Christmas Parade Correction


It,


Sheriff Grady Judd of the Polk County Sheriff's Office (PCSO)
gave the Committee of 100 of the Greater Bartow Chamber of Com-
merce an update on Friday. Although growth is an issue, as well as
overcrowded jails, the Sheriffs Office has been working with the
federal courts to access probation violators every day insteadpf tak-
ing four to 10 weeks, Judd.said. This moves probation violators
more quickly to state prison, freeing up county jail space. Judd told
the group about new building projects for administration and addi-
tional jail beds. Committee of 100 members attending were (from
left): seated Jeff Tebo, PCSO; Barbara Newell, City of Bartow;
Casey Fletcher, PalletOne, Inc.; Scott Wilder, PSCO; Anita Stasiak,


Citrus & Chemical Bank; C.C. Corbe.tt; Jeff Clark, Bartow Cham-
ber; standing Tom Haggerty, Polk Works; Isaac Hartmann, Allen
& Company; Linda Bagley-Wiggs, Bagley Advertising; Brian Hin-
ton, Bartow Community Healthcare Foundation; Jim DeGenarro,

commissioner; Len Jordan, URS Southern; Judd; Joe DeLegge, city
manager; Jim Duane, Bartow, Community Redevelopment Agency;
Larry Madrid, Madrid Engineering; George Lindsey, Highland

Avoid Headaches

This Holiday Season


Do you find yourself more
stressed out during the holiday
season?
According to a recent online
survey conducted by the Na-
tional Headache Foundation
(NHF), 52 percent of respon-
dents stated that during the
holiday season the frequency or
severity of their headaches in-
creases. In fact 64 percent of re-
spondents have changed their
holiday plans due to their head-
aches.
There are a number of situa-
tions that can exacerbate one's
headache condition, and accord-
ing to the NHF online survey,
the three most prevalent triggers
include stress due to added re-
sponsibilities (61 percent), al-
terations in sleep/wake cycle (56
percent) and being in smoke- or
perfume-filled rooms (47 per-
cent).
Here are a few tips to make
the holidays easier:
Don't disrupt your normal
sleeping and waking patterns.
Those late-night parties also can
lead to headaches by tempting
you to stay up past your bedtime
and wake up later than usual.
Try to go to sleep and awaken
the same time every day. To
minimize this trigger, 44 percent
of survey respondents said that
they maintain a regular sleep/
wake cycle.
Be aware of smoke- and per-
fume-filled rooms. Both are typi-
cal celebration environments
that can trigger headaches. If
possible, get some fresh air or
find an area that is relatively
free of odors.


If you choose to drink alco-
hol, do so in moderation. Try to
drink slowly. Mixed drinks con-
taining fruit or vegetable juices
-will probably have less negative
effect than straight alcohol. Al-
ternate non-alcoholic beverages
such as soda or water with alco-
holic drinks. Avoid red wine,
which contains tyramine, a natu-
rally-occurring amino acid
known to trigger headaches. Try
a glass of white wine instead.
Don't skip meals. An empty
stomach could spur a headache.
Therefore, if you're unable to fol-
low normal eating schedules, be
sure to pack a snack. Avoid foods
such as ripe cheese, processed
meats and chocolate, which may
trigger headaches for some peo-
ple.
Schedule personal time.
Holidays bring families together
for quality time, but being with
your family over several days,
perhaps in close quarters, may
be stressful. Have realistic ex-
pectations about the visit. Plan
to visit friends, take long walks
and give yourself a break.
See your health care pro-
vider. If you find you are experi-
encing more frequent or severe
headaches during the holidays,
make an appointment with a
doctor to develop a treatment
plan.

www.headaches.org or call 1-88-
NHF-5552.

The Polk County commission
will apply to take over a program
for low income households that
the beleaguered Polk County Op-
portunity Council is losing.
Commissioner Jack Myers
urged his colleagues to authorize
the county apply to the Florida
Dept. of Community Affairs to
take over the Community Serv-
ices Block Grant program.
Terry Beaudry, director of
housing and neighborhood devel-
opment, said that the county
commission administered the
program from 1981 to 1991, be-
fore it was transferred to PCOC.
The program does things like
"weatherizing" the homes of low
income households to make them
more energy efficient.
Elba Cherry, director of the
county's neighborhood services


department, said that DCA pre-
fers to place the program with
non-profit agencies, but that lo-
cal governments aft the agency's
second choice.
Polk has told DCA that it is
willing to take over the program
if no non-profit agency is se-
lected, she said.
"Our position is completely
consistent with their position,"
she added. ... ;
Myers urged the commission
to submit an active application
for the program "to make sure
these funds do not go unused."
He asked that Commission
Chm. Bob English contact Con-
gressman Adam Putnam "to be
sure he's okay with that."
Commissioners unanimously
authorized both actions.

heart, I will keep saying, there's no place like home ,, there's no place like home,,, there's no place
like home ., .


Beginning the first day of his
third term as a Polk County
commissioner, Randy Wilkinson
renewed his call for creation of a
citizens review board for the
sheriff's office.
Wilkinson recalled that he
proposed the concept several
years ago, but could muster the
support of only one other cornm-
missioner.
He said that 138 city and
county police agencies in the
country have some sort of citi-
zens oversight board.
,Among Florida cities and
counties with review boards are
Orange County, Hillsborough
County, Orlando, Miami, and St.
Petersburg, he said.
In addition to investigating
complaints, oversight boards can
offer guidance on agency policies
and procedures, he said.
The Polk County Sheriff's Of-
fice prides itself in being proac-
tive, Wilkinson said, adding that
it is not necessary to wait for a
crisis before creating a review


board.
Other commissioners noted
Wilkinson's proposal, but did fot
comment or take action.

Judd made it clear that he's
not going to be drawn into, the
conflict between residents ofE.F.
Griffin Road, who want to pre-
serve the rural atmosphere of the
area, and developers, who want
to build large subdivisions en it.
'"There are wonderful people
on both sides of this issue, and
I'm not going to get involved," he
said.
'This is a neighborhood issue
that involves Brian Garrett as an
individual.
"He has not ofily the right but
the obligation to defend his inter-
ests and his neighborhood."

A person wakes up after sleeping
under an ADVERTISED blanket
on an ADVERTISED mattress
and pull off ADVERTISED pajamas,
bathes in an ADVERTISED shower,
shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,
brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED tooth-
paste,
washes with ADVERTISED soap,
puts on ADVERTISED clothes,
drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee,
drives to work in an ADVERTISED car
and then...
Iefuses to ADVERTISE, believing that it doesn't pay.
Later, if business is poor,
the person ADVERTISES it for sale.

Jackets Win in Dominating Fashion, 70-43


By NEAL DUNCAN
Sports Correspondent
Bartow High Sch6ol boys' bas-
ketball team got their second
district win of the year with a,
70-43 win over Haines City on
Dec. 5 at BHS.
The Jackets began the game
sluggishly with Head Coach Ter-
rence MfcGriff calling a timeout
just one minute into the game.
After the timeout, the team im-
proved their play and ended the
first quarter with a 10-7 lead.
Bartow took control of the
game with a 24-point second
quarter that increased their lead
to 12 points with a halftime
score of 34-22. With strong in-


side and outside play, the Jack-
ets were led in the third and
fourth quarters by Weedlens
Beavil, Marlon Austin and
Shawn Montgomery.
Bartow's best offensive pro-
duction of the season, accompa-
nied by tenacious defensive, led
Bartow to the 70-43 district vic-
tory.
When asked if his young team
is continuing to get better each
game, Coach McGriff had this to
say, "We are certainly getting
better on the offensive side. but
we are still missing too many
lay-ups. We are fouling way too
much and we need to cut down
on our turnovers."
The Jackets turned over the

Bartow Intimidators Win Back to Back Titles
By BILLY LANIER


Coming off a dominating per-
formance just two short weeks
ago winning their first tourna-
ment, the Bartow Intimidators
did it again, this time in the gold
division.
The Intimidators won their
second title in the ISA Toys for
Tots 14 and under girls' fastpitch
tournament held in Lakeland on
Dec. 2-3.
On Saturday in the seeding
games, the Intimidators won two
games, losing the last game to
the Central Florida Sting. That
loss snapped the Intimidators'
- eight-game winning streak.
SGoing into Sunday's elimina-
tion rounds, the first team the
Intimidators faced was the Plant
City Sizzlers, whom they beat
14-4 with Taylor Wagner pitch-
ing. Wagner went 2-0 as the
starter.
The second game was a re-
match game against the Central
Florida Sting with Melissa La-
nier pitching for the Intimida-
tors.
Lanier went 3-0 as the starter
with Mariah Reynolds catching.
With Lanier hitting her spots all
game long. the Intimidators took
it to the Central Florida Sting.

sending them home early by
beating them 3-0.
With that win, the Intimida-
tors went into the championship
game against the Tavares Twist-
ers, a team that had not lost a
game all weekend.
At the coin toss, the Twisters
won and selected home. Lanier.
with her stoic look. took the
mound.
The Twisters took the early
lead, scoring one run in the sec-
ond inning.
In the top of the third, the In-
timidators' bats finally got
started, scoring six runs.
Now the stunned Twisters
were not able'to get anything
started with the hot defense of
the Intimidators putting out any
chance. Two great-double plays
were made by third-base Ra-
chael Imig. who is only 11 years
old.
Alexis Edmondsca. the sec-
ond-base player, made two out-
standing plays. One was hit to
her like a rocket it spun her
around and with her mouth wide
open in disbelief she looked at
her glove and yes, the ball was
there. She is 12 ears old and
weighs about 60 Ibs. She also
caught a pop fly hit foul by the


fence.


Making great plays in the in-
field were Kelly Britt at short-
stop and her sister. Katie Britt.
playing first. Wagner also made
some great plays, playing in cen-
ter field.
The Intimidato:rs scored an-
other run in the sixth inning.
beating the Tav'ares Twisters T-

Lanier faced 24 batters, strik-
ing out nine batters with two
hits and on- walk. For the com-
bined two, championship games
she faced -18 batters \with four
hits. one %walk and 17 strikeouts.
Lamer says she ish very com-
fortable at the mound because
she knows she has eight other
great players backing her.
The top three hitters :for the
weekend were Katie Britt with a
.715 average. Chelsea Brukhardt
with a .425 average, and Taylor
Wagner with a .400 average. Ka-
tie Britt also had an inside-the-
park home run in the champion-
ship game.
Mariah Reynolds also had an
inside-the-park home run earlier
in the tournament. Shelby Dun-
can also played some shortstop
very well during the absence :'f
Kelly Britt.
