Planning Director's


Rezoning Request


Rejected by Council


SBartow's discarded Christmas trees some of them, at least- went up in a traditional bonfire on
Friday night. The tree-burning was moved forward two nights from New Year's Eve, which fell on a
:unday, and the pile was smaller than usual. This prompted S. L. Frisbie, IV, master of ceremonies for
the event, to quip that this might be the first year in which the people in the audience outnumbered the
trees in the bonfire. Staff photo



PCSO Deputies To Have AEDs


SThose in need may soon find
help as close as the nearest police
car.
SNinety-nine Polk County
deputies will now have automat-
ed' external defibrillators (AED)
Sin their cars, and be trained on
how to use the device to save
lives.
*: An AED is a portable electron-
ic device that diagnoses and
t reats cardiac arrest by re-estab-
'lishing a heart rhythm through
Electronic shock.
The device is commonly used
S in cases of cardiac arrest, and do
not typically pace the heartbeat of
the victim.
;: The county already owns sev-
eral portable devices, and Polk


County Emergency Services
donated the 99 new ones, all pur-
chased through a grant.
Sometime. this month, Sheriff
Grady Judd said he expects all
cars to have the device, with the
remaining. 300 purchased.
through law enforcement trust
funds.
These funds are seized from
crime and drug sales.
The purchase was planned
more than a year ago, when Judd
said he heard the story of an offi-
cer leaving a meeting and hearing
an emergency call. On the way to
the call, the officer passed four
deputy sheriff's cars, all of which
were not equipped to deal with
the emergency.'


There were deputies who could
have been at the scene faster
than the ambulance, Judd said.
"If it's someone you love, do you
really care if it's a deputy sheriff
who arrives first?
"Our job is not to take the
place of EMS, but to be a first
responder," he said.
Polk County EMS and Public
Safety then stepped in and
offered 99 of the devices, pur-
chased through grant funds. Each
unit costs around $1,000.
"With this presentation and
approval in January (of the pur-
chase)," Judd told county commis-
sioners, "you will be directly
responsible for saving lives."

By a vote of 3-to-2, Bartow city
commissioners denied an applica-
tion by City Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers to downgrade the zoning
on a parcel of land at Kissengen
Avenue and Mann Road to allow
eight homes instead of the six
permitted under present zoning.
The commission's vote Tuesday
night mirrored the 3-to-2 split on
the zoning board, which recom-
mended denying the request.
The commission met one night
later than usual because of the
New Year's Day holiday.
The application by Wiegers
and his wife, Lisa, would have
changed the zoning from R-1-A to
R-1 on 1.95 acres of land that
they, purchased at 1250 East
Mann Road.
R-1-A zoning requires lots at
least 100 feet wide and homes of
at least 1,600 square feet. R-1
zoning allows 70-foot lots and
1,200-square-foot homes.
Linda Weldon, assistant city
manager, and William Konrad, a
developer who has built several
developments in and around
Bartow, presented the case for
Wiegers. Some neighbors spoke
for the rezoning and some against
it.
No one taking part in the pub-
lic hearing mentioned the fact


'that Wiegers heads the one-per-
son department that normally
processes zoning applications.
But at: the work session pre-
ceding the regular meeting,
Mayor Rosie Thornburg said the
request is not spot zoning, as
Zoning Board Chm. Michael J.
Marchman suggested, "and this
makes it compatible.
"I think we should take that
into consideration as much as
who he (Wiegers) is and where he
works."
She said a number of homes in
the area are smaller than 1,000
square feet.
City Atty. George Dunlap told
the commission, "As far as I'm'
'concerned, spot zoning doesn't
exist any more if you have a com-
prehensive plan."
.Commissioner Brian Hinton
asked why the city even has dif-
ferent standards for single-family
residential zones from R-1 to
R-1-5A if they are all compati-
ble.
"I don't know," Dunlap replied.
In presenting the application
for Wiegers, Konrad said that
incompatibility is putting a
slaughterhouse in a residential
neighborhood, or putting small or
cheap houses in upscale neighbor-
hoods.
He said that although zoning
in the area is R-1-A, a number of
lots and homes don't meet the


standards for that designation.
The average price of homes in
the neighborhood is $170,000,
while new homes, even if built to
R-1 standards, sell for around
$200,000, he said.
"You cannot make the numbers
work" by building to R-1-A stan-
dards, he said, because the homes
would be too expensive.
He said Wiegers wanted to cre-
ate six lots with 70 feet of
frontage, and two corner lots 93
feet wide.
Ken Hastings, who owns a
home nearby, said that surround-.
ing property is zoned R-1-A and
R-1-2A, that that rezoning the
Wiegers property "would be out of
character with the neighbor-
hood." He said the average size of
nearby homes is 2,000 square
feet.
Downgrading the property
would set a precedent for other R-
1 development in the area, he
said.
Hastings told the commission
he had a petition with 70 signa-
tures of people who opposed the
"rezoning.
Nathaniel Prescott, who owns
the home immediately north of
the Wiegers property, said the
rezoning "would cause undue
stress in the neighborhood."

'Nelson Serrano reads testimony on his monitor
during hearings held Tuesday and Wednesday
before Circuit Court Judge Susan Roberts. Family
and friends said that Serrano was a "good and car-
ing" man, who helped family and acquaintances
financially and emotiona'iy. Ana Ordonez (left), wife
of Serrano's nephew Alfredo Luna, said Serrano
"would never harm anyone." The couple flew from
Quito, Ecuador, to ask for leniency for Serrano. In

JIM HANCOCK SHOWS off the full dress of a Seminole Indian
man, which he donated to the museum. (Photo provided)


By LETA WRIGHT
About two weeks ago Mr. and
Mrs. Jim Hancock came to the
museum to donate a Seminole
Indian full dress attire for a
man.
Hancock modeled the clothes
and hat so that we could see how
it looks. It is beautiful.
We have so little artifacts of
the Indians who lived in Fort
Meade before we did. We really
need a mannequin to show off
this Seminole Indian suit.
We do thank the Hancocks for
this gift. I'm sure all the visitors
will enjoy seeing it.
The holiday decorations were
beautiful at the museum, but the
New Year will start with dis-
mantling and carefully storing
all the decorative pieces for an-
other year.

Editorial


Inaugural addresses should be, and usu-
ally,. are, ambitious and optimistic mes-
sages.
Ideally, they should be realistic as well,
dealing in specific needs and how to
achieve them. They should focus on solu-
tions, more than on problems.
Gov. Charlie Crist, sworn in as Florida's
44th governor on Tuesday, set a high but
realistic expectation for his administration
and for the Legislature.
Whether his goals can be realized will
depend in large part on both the wisdom
and the courage of the Legislature.
It comes as no surprise that he identified
alleviating the twin perils to home owner-
ship skyrocketing insurance premiums
and out-of-control tax increases as his
paramount objectives. A special session of
the Legislature will convene later this
month, to look at those two areas.
We have said before that we think the
Legislature should look first at taxes, not
insurance, because the Legislature has vir-
tually unlimited authority to do something
about taxes.
Historically, "insurance regulation" in
Florida has been an oxymoron to the per-
son paying the rate. Whenever the price of
any product or service rises annually at
several times the rate of inflation, the con-
cept that it is being effectively regulated is
pretty hard to comprehend.
There are no easy answers to the insur-
ance crisis. It would be nice for the federal
government to underwrite catastrophic
losses, reducing the exposure of insurers
to manageable levels. But it is unrealistic
to expect a Congress which represents the
interests of all 50 states to come rushing to
the aid of those relatively few states along
the coasts of the Gulf of Mexico and the
Atlantic Ocean.
We have few ideas on how the
Legislature can bring about insurance
reform in Florida; we can only assert that
reform is critically needed.
Taxes, on the other hand, can be con-
trolled by the Legislature, either directly or
by proposing an amendment to the


Florida Constitution. Crist has proposed
the latter, and we believe that is the wiser
choice. That which the people approve in
an amendment to the Constitution can
only be reversed by the people in a future
amendment.
And if the Legislature does an effective
job in that regard, it should serve to fore-
stall citizen initiatives which have pro-
duced such ill-advised unfunded man-
dates as High Speed RailPand the Class
Size Amendment.
To achieve this, as Crist said, will take a
bipartisan or nonpartisan effort of the
Legislature, and that is a tall order.
We have editorially suggested that the
state establish a baseline year for property
taxes residential and commercial and
limit the annual growth, in appraisals. This
is precisely what the Save Our Homes
Amendment did, but that applies only to
owner-occupied homes (homesteads) and
lasts only for as long as owners stay in
their present homes.
The Save Our Homes approach was a
sound one, and could be broadened.
Crist speaks of being "the People's
Governor" and calls on the Legislature to
be "the People's Legislature."
Both Crist and the Legislature will earn
those proud titles if they make meaningful
progress toward protecting the American
Dream of home ownership by creating
relief from property insurance rates and
property taxes that put that dream at peril.

major new addition to the South
County Jail in Frostproof.
SNo parking garage. City and
county officials have been talking
for years about building a park-
ing garage east of the county
administration building. It's an
expensive project, and it won't
happen this year.
More cooperation. Polk
County government and Polk's
municipalities will enter into fur-
ther discussion of city-county
cooperation, such as the plans
now in place for Bartow to build
a regional sewage treatment
plant, partially funded by the
county.
Charter school slowdown.
The rapid expansion of the char-
ter school program in Polk,
County will slow down in 2007.
Once viewed as an educational
panacea, the charter school pro-
gram has shown once again that
there are few easy answers in the
quest for higher quality, cost-effi-
cient education.
No rush to modular. Polk's
first all-modular school was
approved in 2006. Will this set a
trend? No; bricks and mortar will
be the rule, not the exception.


Failure is not an option. The
Florida Legislature will move full
bore on looking for ways to drive
down the cost of property insur-
ance and'real estate taxes. The
effectiveness of these initiatives
are problematical. This is more
than the Issue du Jour; it is a mat-
ter of keeping alive the American
Dream of home ownership.
No draft. A year end poll
revealed that 35 percent of
Americans believe that the mili-
tary draft will be resumed in

REPORTER'S CORNER / By DAWN WADE

We Should Be Okay


History From Our Files
Compiled from the files of The Democrat by Loyal Frisbie


On Monday, an unsettling
thing happened.
As I was making up the front
page, S. L. Frisbie reminded me
to change the line in the banner
from "Copyright Frisbie
Publishing Company" to
"Copyright Sun Coast Media
Group."
While it seems like such a
small thing, the finality of those
words hit me like a ton of bricks.
I was born in California, and I
was raised in Port St. Lucie, but I
grew up in Bartow specifically,
at The Polk County Democrat.
Working at The Democrat was
my first real job. Sure, I had
worked little jobs in high school,
but my aim there was not to do a
great job, but to flirt, have fun,
and make enough money to buy
new CDs.
There are, sadly, few opportu-
nities to flirt at The Democrat.
This was the first job that came
with a paycheck vital to my exis-
tence. The first job that carried
with it a real responsibility, and
at 21, I was scared to death.
In my seven years at The
Democrat, I have learned so
much about reporting, photogra-
phy, page makeup and journal-
ism in general, but I also have
learned so much about myself.
I have become a better person
here, and I thank Mary and S. L.
Frisbie for that opportunity.
This is the only place I have
ever worked where I wanted to
try new things and take on new
responsibilities, not because of a
mandate or raise, but because I
felt a loyalty to the people I
worked with and the product we


It was here that we were
allowed to make mistakes not
Large ones and, hopefully, not in
print and allowed to gently
come to our own decision of how
very wrong we were.
It was here that although we
have to cover some things that
we find less than fun, we were
allowed to find our own pas-
sions, our own stories, and write
about things we find interesting.
It was here that some of us
went through hard times -
deaths, breakups, sicknesses -
and knew that our hardship
would be understood and felt by
those we worked with.
It was here that we have cele-
brated happytimes- marriages,
births, Wednesday night pizza
parties, and the occasional
breakup and knew our joy
would be genuinely shared.
It was here that a customer or
reader or anyone could call, and,
if S. L. was not on church busi-
ness or visiting our Lake Whles
office, the caller could speak to.
the publisher sometimes for a
good hour.
It was here that the major deci-
sions about the paper, from color
to the page size, were discussed,
not decided from the ivory tower.
And it was here that we have
always felt we have had a voice.
Now the paper has new own-
ers, and so far they have shown
themselves understanding, gen-
erous, and having the desire to
grow with the people here.
As those people include S. L.
and Mary, I think we should be
okay.


Fifty Years Ago

A 17-year-old youth who
crashed his motorcycle into a left-
turning. automobile, was pinned
by one leg in the wreckage for an
hour before his vehicle could be
taken apart. A doctor who was
called to the scene gave the youth
a local anesthetic, and helped him
remain standing on one leg until
his badly fractured leg and foot
could be freed. The next morning,
he was reported in "fairly good"
condition in Bartow Memorial
Hospital.
Most telephone bills in the
Bartow area will increase by up to
85 cents a month, effective on
bills dated Jan. 1, N.E. Jordan,'
manager of the local Peninsular
Telephone Co. agency,
announced today.
Governor LeRoy Collins
announced today that he will
appoint State Atty. Gunter
Stephenson of Winter Haven to
the new judgeship of the 10th
Judicial Circuit, and will name
R.B. Huffaaker, Bartow attorney, to
succeed Stephenson as state
attorney.

Forty-Five Years Ago

Having come up short of
names for the second time in two
years, Polk County "wets" said
today they will ask the county'
commission to have the voter reg-
istration books purged.
An unusual gasoline price war
here has driven gasoline prices
down a full eight cents, to 28.9 for
premium grades and 24.9 for reg-
ular. And according to most


local distributors no end to the
war is in sight.
Otho L. Graham, Jr., was
named mayor for 1962, as city
commissioners reorganized
Tuesday night, with Dr. W.B.
Geiger as vice-mayor. All major
.city officials were reappointed:
C.R. Odom, city manager; C.A.
Richardson, city clerk; W.P.
Tomasello, city attorney; Leonard
F. Blanker, Jr., city judge; Monte
Campbell, prosecutor and assis-
tant city attorney; George T.
Dunlap, III, assistant prosecutor.

Forty Years Ago

Even if all Polk County schools
are required to be integrated in
the Fall, School Supt. Shelley
Boone foresees no particular
problems.
Governing bodies reorganized
for the coming year, and have
chosen new sets of officials: City
commission: C.A. Richardson,
mayor; W.S. Renfroe, vice-mayor;
appointive officials named: C.R.
Odom, city manager; E.Y.
Etheredge, city judge; William A.
Norris, city attorney (replacing
Wallace Storey who resigned);
Mrs. Newell Bowden, acting city
clerk.
County commission: L.W.
Dunson, Winter Haven, chair-
man; Floyd Woods, Mulberry,
vice-chairman.
County school board: Wendell
W. Watson of Lakeland, chair-
nian; Seth McKeel, District 1,
vice-chairman.
Miss Carolyn Gayle
Duckworth, 23, of Alturas, was
killed in a one-car accident


Monday night when she was
thrown from her car as it over-
turned, then was trapped under
it.

Thirty-Five Years Ago

Cities Service Co., under a
court order not to resume opera-
tions until its settling ponds are
strengthened, has laid off
"approximately 100 hourly paid
employees," effective at 8 a.m.
today.
Dr. Paul E. Coury was elected
Bartow's mayor for 1972 by his
fellow commissioners and newly-
elected Dr. Thomas M. McMicken
was chosen vice-mayor.
J.D. Raulerson, Jr., registered
engineer, was hired Monday
night to serve as part-time indus-
trial recruiter as a joint project of
the city commission and
Chamber of Commerce.
Resignation of William M.
Rogers, III, as Bartow's finance
director was announced today by
City Mgr. C.R. Odom. Appointed
to succeed Rogers is Miss Nancy
Holloway, an accountant in the
finance department since May 25.
Sgt. Walter T. Daniels of
Bartow has been named out-
standing maintenance man at
Anderson Air Force Base, Guam.

Thirty Years Ago

A New Year's Eve argument in
the parking lot of a liquor store
ended with the shooting of one
man (who is recovering at Polk
General Hospital) and the jailing
of another on a charge of aggra-
vated battery.


Dr. W.B. Geiger was elected
Bartow's mayor by his fellow
city commissioners Tuesday
night. George Coker was elected
vice-mayor.
Two Bartow students have
been chosen for all-state bands:
Chris Post for the senior high
sight-reading band, and Karen
Bowen for the junior high concert
band.

Twenty-Five Years Ago

The state's crime fighting com-
puter system resulted in three
unrelated arrests over the New
Year's holiday weekend. A com-
puter check on a car parked
behind Union Academy at 3:42
a.m. Friday revealed that both the
license tag and the car had been
stolen in Orlando, and so had the
owner's billfold.
Police investigating a distur-
bance on Dunbar Street arrested a
man who gave several conflicting
stories on previous jobs when
they discovered that he was
wanted in both Polk and
Hillsborough Counties on a vari-
ety of charges. A check on the
man arrested on the disturbance
call revealed the man was wanted
for attempted murder and shoot-
ing into an occupied vehicle.
International Minerals &
Chemical Corp. will lay off 65
employees indefinitely, begin-
ning Jan. 18, and two of IMC's
Polk County facilities at
Kingsford and Phosphoria will
be cut to five-day shifts.


Last year's, predictions were
only slightly better than the
Seminoles' team record, but life
goes on.
Here are my predictions for
2007:
Finished at last. As 2007
dawns, work is in its early weeks
on shoring up and restoring the
old Philip's Department Store
building, which the owners claim
was damaged by the Main Street
redesign project. The project has
been delayed for more than a
year. By year's end, the street will
be repaved, the decorative cross-
walks will be in place, and the
Main' Street project will be fin-
ished at last.
Moving Day ahead. The city
will buy the Ametek building and
will begin relocating several
departments to it. It is a vastly
more affordable concept than
building a new city services com-
plex on the State Road 60 bypass.
A new look. Plans will begin
for the remodeling of the interior
of city hall. Construction?
Probably not, but plans -will be
drawn.
More space for more guests.
Construction will begin on the

thinking skills regarding a topic
that is both authentic and im-
portant to the citizens of Flor-
ida," said Dr. Evan Lefsky, Just
Read, Florida! executive director.
Students are asked to play
the role of mayor of a community

trina and develop a prepared-
ness plan.

Rezoning

(Continued from Page 1A)
Pat Crisman, who lives near-
by, spoke in support of the appli-
cation, saying, '"This is a good
development for the neighbor-
hood" and would provide "work
force housing."
She also told the commission:
"You are required to vote on
substantial competent evidence,
not on hearsay."
Hubert Whitten called the
rezoning application "a win-win
situation for, the city and the
neighborhood." He said the qual-
ity of the houses that are built
are more important than the size
of the lots.
In rebuttal to opponents,
Konrad said that the standard
for compatibility in the city code
is land uses that "can coexist."
On a roll call vote, Hinton and
Commissioners James F.
Clements and. Pat Huff voted
"no," while Mrs. Thornburg and
Commissioner Leo Longworth
voted "yes." Huff said that while
good arguments had been made
in support of the application, he
would follow the. zoning board's
recommendation to deny the
request.

Florida Minimum Wage

Increases 27 Cents


Florida's minimum wage is
now $6.67 per hour, effective Jan.
1, for all hours worked in the
state.
This represents an hourly
increase of 27 cents over the cur-
rent state minimum wage of
$6.40 per hour. Florida's mini-
mum wage was created in a con-
stitutional amendment approved
by voters on Nov. 2, 2004, and
covers all employees in the state
covered by the federal minimum
wage.
The increase in the minimum
wage this year represents a 4.2
percent change in the federal con-
-sumer price index for urban wage
earners and clerical workers in
the South Region for the 12-
month period prior to Sept. 1,
2006. Florida's new minimum
wage will be $1.52 more than the
current $5.15 federal minimum
wage.
Employers must pay their
employees a wage not less than
the amount of the hourly state
minimum wage for all hours
worked in Florida. The defini-
tions of "employer," "employ-
ee," and "wage" for state pur-
poses are the same as those
established under the federal
Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA).
For "tipped employees" who
meet eligibility requirements for
the tip credit under the FLSA,
employers may count tips actual-
ly received as wages, but the
employer must pay "tipped
employees" a direct wage in an
amount equal to the minimum
wage of $6.67 minus $3.02

Employees who are not paid

may act to enforce the minimum
wage.
FLSA information and compli-

Agreement States Vonage

Must Inform Consumers

About 911 Service


Attorney General Charlie
Crist announced an agreement
with Vonage requiring the
, nation's largest provider of Voice
over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
phone service to change its proce-
dures so customers signing up for
911 emergency services will be
informed of differences between
how Vonage and, standard phone
companies provide those services.
The 911 services will now be
offered to customers automatical-
ly when they sign up with Vonage
and provide an address for the
service. The company also will
begin providing more information
that will help local emergency
agencies locate and assist Vonage
customers in need.
Florida and five other states
began investigating Vonage in
May 2005 after they received con-
sumer complaints about the com-
pany's emergency dialing proce-
dures, which are different than
traditional 911 procedures
because VoIP service uses the
internet, rather than standard
telephone lines, to send and
receive calls.
The agreement addresses the
company's alleged failure to prop-
erly inform customers about the
steps that had to be taken to acti-
vate the 911 feature.
Prior to the agreement, con-
sumers who had not activated the
service but attempted to dial 911
during an emergency would
receive a recorded message
informing them that their 911
service had not been activated.
Even if the consumer had activat-
ed the emergency feature,
Vonage's 911 service failed to
transmit the caller's telephone
number and location information
to emergency operators, a fact the
company did not disclose to con-
sumers.


"Not only should consumers
know what they. are signing up
for, they should also be able to
trust that lifesaving services are
readily available," said Crist.
"This agreement could actually
save lives."
Other problems with the 911
feature included a procedure that
directed Vonage customers' calls
to an administrative line rather
than directly to emergency
response personnel through the
local 911 network. In some places,
these administrative lines were
answered only during regular
business hours or were answered
by an automated answering ser-
vice.
Despite these limitations,
Vonage promoted its 911 dialing
capability and advertised the ser-
vice as a "replacement" for tradi-
tional phone service.
As part of the agreement, the
911 feature will be automatically
activated when a customer signs
up as soon as the customer pro-
vides' a physical address. This
address will be transmitted to
- emergency response personnel as
the address of the caller. Vonage
must inform consumers that
-because the service is 'portable,
users must update their address
every time they move and they
should be aware that there may
be a delay in updating the infor-
mation.
Vonage also must disclose
other limitations of the 911 ser-
vice, including the fact that a con-, 4
summer will not have access to 911
during power outages or if the
consumer's broadband connection
is lost.

Florida's enhanced 911 system is

Q. Is black cohosh a safe
remedy for my menopause-
related hot flashes?
A: Black cohosh, available as
tablets or an extract, is an herb
used for menopause-related hot
flashes and insomnia.
Scientists used to be concerned
that if this herb had estrogen-like
effects, it could increase risk of
breast or uterine cancer, 'which
are associated with increased
estrogen.
Recent research suggests, yet
does not completely prove, that
black cohosh's effects are not
estrogenic. One study showed
that after one year of taking 40
milligrams of black cohosh daily,
women showed no change in uter-
ine thickness, a sign of estrogen
exposure.
Some women may experience
headaches, stomach discomfort,
or weight gain, but overall, black
cohosh has a good safety record.
In Britain, products containing
black cohosh will be required to
carry a warning label that the
herb may cause liver damage.
Long-term safety data on black
cohosh is lacking.
SSome researchers recommend
limiting the use of black cohosh to
six months or less, since few stud-
ies provide safety information for
longer use. As for its effective-
ness, some studies suggest black
cohosh may help relieve
menopausal symptoms and other


studies do not. It's difficult 'to
interpret these studies because
they use different amounts of
black cohosh and measure results
in different ways. So far it seems
that women with at least moder-
ately intense menopause-related
symptoms may find symptoms
reduced by up to 50 percent.
Women with less severe prob-
lems may not benefit as much.

Q: Are there tricks to deal
with taste changes that occur
during chemotherapy or radi-
ation treatment of cancer?
A: Taste. changes affect some
people more than others, but are
completely normal consequences
of these treatments.
These changes usually' disap-
pear gradually a few months after
the end of treatments. If food
seems too bland, make it more
flavorful with extra herbs or (as
long as you. don't have mouth or
throat sores) added lemon or lime
juice, salt or spices.
If food seems too salty, counter
by adding sweet flavorings, such
as fruit, honey, molasses, or sweet
spices like cinnamon. If food
seems too sweet, try adding salty
or acidic foods or flavorings, such
as lemon juice or buttermilk.
If food seems too bitter, pro-
ducing an aversion to meat,
choose other protein sources such
as poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, or
beans. Overall, you can make food
more flavorful by using mari-
nades and sauces, highlighting
the flavors that most need to be
added.


You can reduce metallic tastes
in foods by eating from plastic
utensils. If food tastes and smells
become offensive you may toler-
ate cold foods better than hot
foods, which tend to have
stronger aromas. Make sure to
talk with your cancer care team
about mouth hygiene, such as
mouth rinses, to reduce problems
with sores and bacterial growth.

Q: Is natural peanut butter
a better choice than regular
brands?
A: In general, "regular" peanut
butter contains 'hydrogenated oil
to prevent the natural peanut oil
from separating.
Some people are concerned if
they see hydrogenated oil listed
among the ingredients, but only a
trace amount is used.
Check the trans fat content
listed on the label; it's usually
zero. Although regular peanut
butter also contains a small
amount of sugar, the difference
between 1 gram per serving in
natural peanut butter and 3
grams in standard versions
equals about a half-teaspoon of
.sugar.
This difference is unlikely to be
nutritionally significant. If the
natural peanut butter contains no
salt, the choice will save about
120 milligrams of sodium, but
even that is not a huge cut.
Natural peanut butter offers the
chance to avoid salt and sugar we
don't need, but other food choices
you make have a much larger
impact.


Whole Grains Go Mainstream For Taste

Headlines announcing a Jour-
nal of the American Medical As-
sociation study linked consump-
tion of green tea with protection
from stroke, but not cancer,
caught many people by surprise.
Tea provides a good example
of why we need to consider both
laboratory and population stud-
ies in choosing steps to lower
cancer risk and promote overall
health.
Green tea contains relatively
high amounts of a type of phyto-
chemical called EGCG. Labora-
tory studies have shown EGCG
is a powerful antioxidant.
A variety of antioxidants from
plant foods seem to stabilize
"free radicals," protecting DNA
from damage that could allow
cancer to develop, and protecting
blood vessels from damage that
could promote blockages.
Laboratory studies show
EGCG can also increase produc-
tion of enzymes that protect us
from cancer-causing substances,
decrease levels of a substance
key to promoting cancer develop-
ment, and increase cancer cell
self-destruction.
In most studies checking
signs, of green tea's effects in
people, antioxidant levels in the
blood increase, showing we can
absorb antioxidant compounds in
tea.
For example, in a study of 133
heavy smokers who are ex-
posed to DNA damage from


smoking four months of drink-
ing 4 cups (8 ounces each) of de-
caffeinated green tea daily re-
duced the signs of DNA damage
by 31 percent:
Large population-based stud-
ies of the impact of green tea
show much less consistent re-
sults. Some population studies
link higher green tea consump-
tion with lower risk of colon,
stomach, breast, prostate and
other cancers.
Other, similar-type studies,
show no effect. In the recent
study of more than 40,000 Japa-
nese adults, those who drank at
least one, three-ounce cup of
green tea daily suffered 25 per-
cent fewer deaths due to cardio-
vascular disease than those who
did not drink it daily.
However, deaths due to stom-
ach, lung or colorectal cancer did
not decrease, even with five or
more three-ounce cups daily.
It's possible we might see can-
cer protection if we look at those
drinking the equivalent of three
or four eight-ounce cups daily,
which some researchers suggest
may be needed for cancer protec-
tion.
Benefits in the effects seen in
tea drinkers may come from
other healthy habits.
Differences of study findings
may also mean green tea offers
more benefit for some people
than others, depending on diet
or exposure to risk-producing
substances such as tobacco or
pollution.
One study, for example, sug-
gests tea and soy may produce


similar benefits, and consuming ;
one may decrease the chances of
benefit from the other. That
might explain why cancer protec-
tion was not seen in the recent
study of Japanese adults, almost
all of whom ate soy foods daily.
Genetics may explain part of.
why population studies tend to -
show large variation in how .''
study participants are affected i
by tea.
The antioxidant benefits of;"
tea, which could help reduce.
blockages in blood vessels, may"-''
not be strongly affected by genet- ':
ics. However, research has
shown genetic differences will in- "'
fluence how people respond to '
phytochemicals in tea that can ,.
lead to stopping cancer-causing.
substances. '
This may mean green tea of- '.
fers more cancer protection for :"
some people than others.
Simply drinking green tea .
can't save us from the damages ,
caused by overeating, a poorly- :'
balanced diet, or a sedentary
lifestyle. Today's research identi- -
fies a plant-based diet, a healthy
weight, physical activity, and ,'
avoiding tobacco as the most ef-: '
fective steps to lower cancer risk. '
For those who would like to do "'
more to reduce their risk, replac- ':-.
ing three or four cups of coffee or 1 *
soda per day with green tea is ,
still a reasonable step that may ,"
bring a variety of health bene- '
fits.

You no longer have to go to
the health food store to find
whole grains.
The health benefits of eating
whole rather than processed
grains have become so widely ac-
cepted today that they're easy to
find at any supermarket.
Research reported by the
American Institute for Cancer
Research shows that whole
grains such as whole wheat, oats
and brown rice have powerful
.antioxidants, cancer-fighting
agents that went undocumented
for years.
Whole grains, the study
found, exhibit a level of anti-can-
cer activity that is equal to, and
sometimes greater than, the
level known to occur in vegeta-
bles and fruits.
The scientists involved in the
study say thatthe key to a whole
grain's enormous cancer-fighting
potential lies in its very whole-
ness.
A grain of whole wheat has
three parts: endosperm, bran
and germ. When wheat, or any
grain, is refined, the bran and
germ, where most of the protec-
tive phytochemicals and fiber
are stored, are removed.
These findings may partially
explain why diets high in whole
grains can help reduce the inci-
dence of colon cancer, breast can-
cer, prostate cancer, heart dis-
ease and diabetes.
There are a large variety of
whole grains, opening a whole
new world to bakers and cooks
who may have only used proc-
essed flours and grains.
Kasha, or buckwheat groats,
is a good whole grain with which
to become familiar. Native to
Central Asia, it was introduced,
to Europe toward the end of the
Middle Ages. In Russia, kasha
refers to a variety of grains. In
the U.S., however, it means the
roasted buckwheat groats that
have a toasty, nutty flavor.
Kasha is full. of B vitamins
and rich in magnesium, phos-
phorous, potassium, iron and
calcium. One cup of kasha ker-
nels contains more than 20 per-
cent of the recommended daily
intake of fiber.
And it is an incredibly versa-
tile'grain,' eaten at breakfast,
lunch, or dinner. It can be' served
with eggs or as a hot cereal. It's
good in a hearty soup or in a cold
salad. The following colorful dish
mixes kasha with vegetables and
a dollop of yogurt for garnish.

Fort Meade Town Yard Sale

Helps Youth Football Program


Turn your trash to treasure
and help out Fort Meade's youth
at the same time.
How?
By participating in Fort
Meade Leisure Services "Trash
to Treasure" community-wide
yard sale benefiting Fort Meade
youth football and cheerleading
programs.
The event is planned for Sat-
urday, Jan. 27, from 8 a.m. to 3
p.m., at Fort Meade Community
Center. Registration deadline is

member of the Pop Warner
Heartland League.

Mitey-Mite, Pee Wee and Midget
teams, plus cheerleading squads
for each team.
Players and cheerleaders
range from 6 through 14 years
old. The program has 150 kids
and coaches.
Pee Wee and Midget teams
went undefeated (9-0) this sea-
son and won the Pop Warner
Heartland League champion-
ships in their divisions.
Fort Meade youth football is


operated under the direction of

the financial needs for each sea-
son's budget, with the goals of,

lies, businesses and individuals,

FCA Touches Lives of 3,000-5,000

Students in West Central Florida


Working through Christian
coaches and student athletes in
middle schools and high schools,
the Fellowship of Christian Ath-
letes touches the lives of 3,000 to
5,000 students per year in four
West Central Florida counties,
according to Charlie Warren,
area director for FCA.
Those youngsters "make some
type of commitment to change
their lives," Warren said in a
talk to the Bartow Rotary Club.
"We work one person at a
time, making our communities a
better place to live," he said, and
"teaching them to make right
choices every day."
The West Central Florida of-


fice of FCA serves Polk, High-
lands, Hardee and DeSoto coun-
ties. The office has a staff of
three people.
"You have a very good Chris-
tian coach in Shawn Killets," he
said. Killets is head coach of the
Bartow High School Yellow
Jackets football team.
FCA works through coaches
who are committed Christians,
and also has community chap-
lains who assist in its programs,
he said.
One of FCA's main Ways of
reaching out to students is
through athletic camps that com-
bine sports training, inspira-
tional speakers, and fun, he said.


Students are required to raise
$100 of the cost of attending the
camps; the balance is raised
through community contribu-
tions.
The West Central Florida of-
fice has a budget of $350,000, of
which $50,000 is to support the
camping program, Warren said.
"We pay for a lot of pizza and
drinks," he added.
FCA was organized in 1954,
founded on the concept that if
athletes can sell products in the
marketplace, they can bear wit-
ness to their faith in their com-
munities.
It estimates that it touches
some 1.5 million lives each year.


FWC Seeks Public Input On Snook Management


Floridians have a chance to
comment on snook fishery man-
agement during one of five pub-
lic workshops scheduled
throughout the state this month.
A recent Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) stock assessment for
snook concluded the manage-
ment goal of a 40 percent spawn-
ing potential ratio established
for this fishery is riot being met,
and increased fishing is contrib-
uting to the declining rate.
Spawning potential ratio is
the ratio of the egg production of
mature fish in a fished popula-
tion to the egg production that
would exist if the population was
not fished.
The purpose of the workshops
is to review the Commission's re-
cent snook stock assessment and
consider recommendations made


by a workgroup formed by the
FWC to help evaluate the man-
agement of the snook fishery.
The workgroup recommenda-
tions for snook include narrow-
ing the current 27-34 inches to-
tal length slot limit, changing
the closed seasons and reducing
the Atlantic coast daily bag limit
from two fish per day to one fish.
The public workshops will
take place from 6 to 8 p.m.:
Monday, Jan. 22, Old
County Court House, 2115 Sec-
ond St., Fort Myers
Tuesday, Jan. 23, FWC Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute,

had the opportunity to see, first
hand, how security is handled by
the nation's finest as they fight
the war on terror.
The first stop was at the Port
of Tampa. Starting on the jour-
ney, the group was accompanied
by Tampa Port Authority per-
sonnel who gave them a behind-
the-scenes look at the various in-
dustries that call the port home.
From the bus, the group trav-
eled the roads back through the
maze of areas accessible not only
by ground transport, but also by
ship.
With everything from steel,
vehicles, lumber, concrete and
phosphate, the port is a major
point accessible to companies
around the world.
Of course, the cruise industry
has found a home at the port as
well. With so much industry
coming in and out of the area on
a daily basis, security is of ut-
most importantance with check-
points and access areas that can
only be accessed by authorized
personnel.

ium was a first for many in the
group. The attraction showcases
more than 10,000 aquatic plant
and animals.
From the aquarium, the group
traveled to MacDill Air Force
Base where the U.S. Special Op-
erations Command is housed.
With lunch in the Officers Club
on the base, each table of Lead-
ership members was ale to sit
and speak with officers currently
stationed at the base.
The group had an opportunity
to visit with a few men in the Air
Force IED (Improvised Explosive
Devices) Division. IEDs are one
of the major threats t troops
overseas and the group at
MacDill gave the class a first-
hand look at what these devices
can look like and at the strate-
gies that are in place to combat
this deadly element of the war.
A couple of the men who
shared their expertise had just
returned from Iraq. Their stories,
had everyone in awe as they
gave details of what troops face
daily. These guys are the front-
line forces that go in when an
IED is suspected.
Robots and special suits made
of Kevlar are used to disengage
the devices. These men are. fight-


ing a whole separate element of
the war on terror, doing every-
thing they can to ensure the
safety of ground-troops.
From an outsider's perspec-
tive, this is one of the most dan-
gerous jobs, and yet each one of
these men chose the job and-
wouldn't change it for any other"
military job. They are.proud of
what they do and we were all
proud to have met them and felt
privileged to shake their hands
and thank them for their dedica-
tion.
The stop at the U.S. Special
Operations Command was a.
unique experience that gave ai
detailed account of the strategies
that the leadership faces on a"
daily basis. It gave a different
perspective of exactly who the:
enemy is, what the enemy is d:-
ing, why the enemy is doing
what they do, and ultimately
what it will take to secure thd
safety of all U.S. citizens.
The Leadership group walked:
away with a new appreciation,
not only for the men and women
who make our freedom a reality,
but the minds that are behind
the strategic thinking and plan-
ning to take out terrorist activ-
ity.

Seeds from the Sower
, *By Michael A. Guido


A hillbilly walked down a
street in Atlanta and came to a
furrier shop.
He stopped to look at a leopard
skin that had been made into a
coat
He gazed on the fur and
thought on the price.
"O'cat," he said, "you were bet-
ter Off before you were worth so
much."
I think I've seen some cats like
that, too.
Just because people are better
off doesn't mean they're better.
A Christian in a Cadillac is no
more precious in the sight of God
thhn a believer on a bicycle.
What's life's poorest invest-
ment? Exchanging your soul for
silver.
Our Lord said, "What will it
profit a man, if he shall gain the
whole world, and lose his own
soul?"

Two men broke into a service
station in California and stole a
paint sprayer and cans ofpaint.
Then they hurried home, say-
ing "We've made it."
But they hadn't.
In the morning, the police were
at the door. A can of paint had
leaked, and left a line from the
station to their home.
Every sin you commit leaves a
trail behind you. It may not
always be seen by man, but it is
seen by God.
The Living Bible says, "He
knows about everyone, every-
where. Everything about us is
wide open to the all-seeing eyes of
our living God; nothing can be
hidden from Him."
Want your tracks covered?
Confess your sins to God. He'll
cover them, cleanse you, and keep
you clean.

A man ran for the train just in
time to see it pull away.
"I guess you didn't run fast
enough," suggested the agent.
"No," answered the man, "I didn't
start soon enough."
No one plans to perish. No one
deliberately decides to go to the
lake of fire.
Why do people perish? They
don't start soon enough to be
saved.
To linger is to be lost. To put if


off is to perish.
The Bible says, "Now is the
accepted time; now is the day of
salvation."
Don't you want to become a
Christian?
Receive Christ now. Don't put
if off put it over!

The New Year had just started
and Joe was feeling very sick.
"Cut down on your workload,"
advised the doctor. "Can't,"
answered Joe. "I have seven kids
to care for."
Finding his patient healthy
and happy a little later, the doc-
tor asked, "What happened?" "I
learned I'm just a pipe," said Joe,
"not a cistern."
He experienced God to be his
Source. He had a breakthrough,
not a breakdown.
God is equal to every situation.
He's ever-present, never-failing,
and all sufficient.

A thief broke into a shoe store,
stole the shoes out of the boxes,
and put the boxes back in place.
When the customers came in
to be served, the clerks pulled out
box after box, only to find them
empty.
Life for so many is like those
shoe boxes empty!
"I have everything to live
with," cried a young man, "but
nothing to live for. Life is empty."
What seemed sweet became
bitter. His lust became disgust.
His drugs became despair.
Do you want a life that's full,
free, and fascinating?
Look to the Lord. He said, "My
purpose is to give life in all its
fullness."

would be a new day and a new
year.
The evidence to the contrary
,was glaring back at me from my
bathroom mirror. When some-
body tells you mirrors don't lie,
don't you believe it. I will not say
the mirror has invented lying;
they have just perfected it, to a
point of deceptive art.
About this time, a refreshing
thought came to mind. It could
very well be that the mirror has
lost track of what time it really
was.
After all, things like that can
happen. Perhaps in time, my
bathroom mirror will catch up
with the New Times.
Glancing away from the mir-
ror, I happen 'to espy the bath-
room scale. Down through the
years this resident of my bath-
room and I have engaged in many
a battle. ,Unfortunately, I have
not been losing.
The careful thought was that
perhaps the bathroom scale was
in tune with the New Times. After
all, the bathroom scale deals with
numbers and is an expert at facts.
In the past, that is the Old
Year, I have been quite hesitant
about stepping on this apparatus.
I am convinced its only purpose in
life is to humiliate me. And, I
might add, it has been quite suc-
cessful. But this is a New Year.
Everything old is new.
With these .cheering thoughts,
I glided toward the bathroom
scales to address it with a very
cheery "good morning." All last
year this contemptible contrap-
tion has insisted that I have
weighed %?!$@! pounds. I, of
course, have argued to the con-
trary.
But this is a new year. And all
things old should be forgotten.
The new year suggests starting


out with a fresh, honest approach
to life.
Even though the mirror great-
ly disappointed me, I was opti-
mistic about the bathroom scale.
So, with "a great deal of confi-
dence, I gingerly stepped on the
bathroom scales. Before looking
down, I shot a glance toward the
mirror and in a momentary lapse
of good taste, my tongue automat-
ically protruded from my mouth
toward the mirror.
When I looked down at the
scale, I was shocked to see that I
weighed %?!$@! pounds, the exact
amount I weighed the day before
the New Year.
There is a conspiracy between
my mirror and my bathroom
scale, which I thought had passed
away with the old year. I now
know that the new year is simply
the old year all over again.
Fortunately, God is above my
mirror and bathroom scale. I like
what the Bible says, "Therefore if
any man be in Christ, he is a new
creature: old things are passed
away; behold, all things are
become new," II Corinthians 5:17
KJV.
The New Year may be the Old
Year revisited, but thank God,
God's "new" is just that new.

Reflections On


.l Faith
By Roger Campbell


We Need a January Thaw


By ROGER CAMPBELL

Now that the message of peace
on earth, good will toward men, is.
neatly packed away with the
Christmas debbrations, we're in
danger of entering our annual
relapse into business as usual.
Though totally inconsistent
with the message of the season
we've been celebrating, this too
often happens.
Those of us who live in cold
climbs now brace ourselves for
winter winds and lots of snow, but
we often look forward to a brief
break, soon after the beginning of
the New Year, called a January
thaw.
We could use one of those mer-
ciful warming times in most of
our churches and in many of our
homes.
Let's thaw the frigid feelings
that divide us from others. Icy
stares and cold meaningless
greetings must go. Bitterness and
strife between members of con-
gregations can thwart the work of
God causing whole communities
to suffer.
Melting spiritual ice is no easy
task. Real and imaginary wrongs
have often built up such strong
barricades to blessings that true
reconciliation among people who
should know better seems out of
the question. Yet our Lord came


Glory Fest

Saturday

At IMC Park

A "Glory Fest" will be held at
IMC Park in Bartow on Satur-
day, Jan. 6, from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m.
The event will feature,a vari-
ety of gospel singing, testimo-
nies, drama team performances,
a puppet show, activities for
kids, and free food.
The park is located at 2250
South Floral Avenue, near the
Bartow Civic Center.
For more information, or to
participate in the event, contact
Pastor Angela at 224-7491, or
Sister Cargil at 632-1950,,


to reconcile us to Himself and
commanded that we forgive oth-
ers as we have been forgiven.
Through her tears, a woman
told me how negatively her life
had been affected by her unwill-
ingness to forgive.
Once she had been one of the
most active members of her
church. Then she had become bit-
ter toward another person in the
congregation and as a result had
spent two unhappy years over
their disagreement. Now she real-
ized how foolish she had been to
carry that old grudge and forgave
her adversary.
The reconciliation of these two
who had been at odds was great
news. But the two years they had
lost could never be regained.
Readiness to forgive at the time of
the offense could have rescued
them from nearly a thousand
days of misery.
A free flow of forgiveness
would revive most churches.
Barriers erected long ago would
fall. Efforts now spent by church
leaders in holding the church
together and catering to warring
factions could be given to reach-
ing out to the community and the
world.
Power to forgive comes from
realizing we have been forgiven..
And both our own forgiveness and
the ability to forgive others are

the results of God's love.
The first century church was a
tiny minority in a dangerous and
hostile world, but they knew their
situation called for unity so they
laid aside their differences in
order to fulfill their mission. They
loved one other, forgave one
another, shared their burdens
and became known as people of
one accord.
We're still benefiting from the
thawing among them that
enabled them to reach their
world.
The warmth of love in any
church can be felt, by tgembers
and visitors, as can the chill of
congregational conflict. What's
the feel of your fellowship?
We're living in dangerous
times and the message of your
church is needed as much as at
any period of history. What are
you going to do about it?
Try increasing your love for
God and others.
Forgive those who have
wronged you and start reaching
out to hurting people.
Your warm-hearted action may
raise the spiritual temperature of
your church enough to bring
about the urgently needed
January thaw.

Maybe your idea of great
seafood is freshly-caught catfish
fried over a campfire, accompa-
nied by hush puppies and grits.
(Is it still seafood if it comes from
a lake or stream?)
Maybe you prefer to grill
grouper over charcoal in the back
yard, or like to. whip up a tuna
salad sandwich with pickle relish.
For me, the best seafood is pre-
pared in a restaurant and served
at my table. But if you like to
experiment with Florida's natural
resources, try some of these
recipes from the Bureau of
Seafood and Aquaculture
Marketing, part of the state Dept.
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services.
Today's column focuses on oys-
ters, 'amberjack and shrimp. For
more Florida seafood recipes and
information visit the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Bureau of
Seafood and Aquaculture
Marketing websites at www.FL-
Seafood.com and www.wildflori-
dashrimp.com.

Apalachicola Bay
Oysters
Now is the perfect time to
enjoy Florida's renowned Apala-
chicola Bay oysters, known for
their mellow flavor,, plumpness
and even saltiness. Traditionally,
oysters are named by the bay,
region or town where they are
grown and not necessarily by
their species.
Apalachicola Bay, with its
warm shallow water fed by the
fresh water of the Apalachicola
River, provides an excellent envi-
ronment for oysters. It is also one
of the most productive marine
ecosystems on the continent.
Oysters feed mainly on single-
cell plants and flourish in estuar-
ies where nutrient-rich fresh
water rivers meet coastal salt
water. Florida's estuaries provide
favorable conditions and a plenti-
ful food supply for Eastern oys-
ters (Crassostrea virginica) to
grow rapidly.
In less than two years, Florida'
oysters can reach marketable
size, while it may take up to six
years in colder northern waters.
Along Florida's Gulf Coast, oys-
ters are harvested commercially
from small boats by fishermen
using large, long handled tongs to
scoop oysters from the sandy bot-
tom beds.
Apalachicola, a tiny Gulf Coast
Panhandle town, is one of
Florida's historic waterfront com-
munities and has been commer-
cially marketing oysters since
1837.
Oysters are still a large part of
the economy in Apalachicola
today, with Apalachicola Bay pro-
ducing 90 percent of Florida's oys-
ters and 10 percent of the supply
nationwide, according to- the
Bureau of Seafood and
Aquaculture Marketing.
Fresh-shucked oysters should
have a clean, sea breeze odor and
a clear or slightly milky, light
gray liquid, called "liquor," in the
container.
The oysters can be stored on
ice or in the coldest part. of the
refrigerator for up to five days
from date of purchase.
People with compromised
immune systems are at high-risk
and should avoid consumption of
raw oysters. They can, however,
consume thoroughly cooked oys-
ters. Anyone with chronic illness
of the liver, stomach, blood, dia-
betes or other immune disorders,
is at greater risk of serious illness'
from raw oysters and should eat
oysters fully cooked.
People in high-risk groups
insistent on consuming raw oys-
ters should consider only oysters
that are labeled "processed to
reduce Vibrio vulnificus to non-
detectable levels." If unsure of
your risk, consult a physician. For

Amberjack: Florida's
Colorful Jewel From
The Sea
Jewelry collectors covet amber
due to its beautiful golden hue
and versatile properties and uses.
Similar attributes are what make
the Florida amberjack a trea-
sured commercial fishing catch.
Amberjack is a colorful food
fish that can be found in Florida's
offshore waters among natural or
man-made reefs, rock outcrops
and wrecks. Its colors include
lavender and golden tints with an
amber band running from the eye
to the tail. These fish also have
amber, even pinkish, casts to the
body.
Amberjack is a member of the
jack family, Carangidae, and are
voracious predators that forage in
small groups over the reefs. They
range in weight from under 15
pounds to more than 150 pounds.
Seafood lovers can find amber-
jack on restaurant menus and in
local seafood markets. It is an
extra-lean fish with a firm-tex-
tured white meat. The flavor is
mild, which makes it adaptable to
many cooking methods and
recipes. When preparing amber-
jack at home consider these
guidelines for amount to pur-
chase:
Whole or drawn fish: 3/4 pound
to 1 pound per serving
Dressed or cleaned fish: 1/2
pound per serving
Fillets or steaks:. 1/4 pound to
1/3 pound per serving.
Popular ways to prepare
amberjack include grilled,
broiled, blackened, poached or
fried. Here are two simple recipes
for broiling and grilling.

Shrimp For All Seasons
No matter the season, just
thinking about eating succulent
and sweet wild-caught Florida
shrimp can be intoxicating. As
America's favorite seafood,
shrimp is the perfect tastebud
tickler to spark your appetite and
pique your culinary curiosity. As a
perennial chef's favorite, wild-
caught Florida shrimp shines in
culinary cuisines from the Pacific
Rim, the Italian countryside,
South Beach and the bistros of
Europe.
Wild-caught shrimp is avail-.
able fresh year-round and is an
excellent source of high-quality
protein. Naturally low in fat, car-,
bohydrates and calories, it is an
ideal choice for a low-carbohy-
drate diet and healthy lifestyle. It
also is a source of omega-3 fatty
acid, which medical research
shows may reduce the risk of
heart disease.
Shrimp is the most popular
seafood in the United States, so it
is good to know that it is a natu-
rally renewable and sustainable
resource according to the Bureau
of Seafood and Aquaculture
Marketing. They reproduce rapid-
ly with one female shrimp releas-
ing thousands of eggs that hatch
within 24 hours. The average life
cycle of a shrimp in the wild is
only 13 months or less.
Five species of wild-caught
Florida shrimp are commercially
harvested in the Gulf of Mexico


Lemon Garlic Oysters (above) and Red Hot Oysters


and South
Atlantic waters.
Four shrimp F!
species are cate-
gorized by shell /
color: pink,
white, brown, "
'and royal red.
:The fifth
species is rock
shrimp, a small-
er deep-water
cousin of the
pink, brown,
and white
shrimp with a
tough, rock-hard shell.

The recently opened Java Jacks has been making its way to the top of Bartow news.
With live music and scheduled events, this coffee shop is selling more than just coffee.
Despite having opened less than a year ago, Java Jacks has already hosted over thirty
different music shows.
Java Jacks' co-owner Mitch Lind duos as a music promoter. He produces music fes-
tivals biannually in Brooksville, Florida. He knows good music when he hears it and
does not hesitate to book it for Bartow.
The latest news on Java Jack's music
scene was the December 15 acoustic
show. All of the artists were local.
S Assistant manager Brian Miller said,
"We are just trying to get a young
crowd and get the Bartow music scene
started."
Co.-owner Kurt Keath came up with
the idea of a music night with young
musicians when he discovered the mu-
sical talents amongst his employees.
With a hin-up of six musicians and bands the night had high expectations as a big hit.
The show began at 7 00 p.m. and was free of charge.

With the newly founded Summerlin Academy in full swing, students have become accustomed to cadets that participate injudo or rifles. But some
may be unaware of another type of student who roams the halls: the scuba diver.
Students who have never explored the underwater world using scuba now have had the opportunity to.do so. The semester-long elective class offered
first period is available to any upperclassmen attending Summerlin Academy. Instructed by BHS baseball coach Tom Pfister, the purpose of the class
is to "have fun underwater and learn responsibility for yourself and for others," said Pfister.
Pool sessions at the Bartow Civic Center allow the students to put knowledge learned about scuba diving in the classroom to use. Before the stu-
dents begin diving, they have to pass a swimming evaluation which includes treading water for ten minutes and swimming four hundred yards. For
senior Brogin Beasley. "Swimming all those laps was easy."
For all of me students, taking their first breath underwater was exciting. Brandon Arnold. a student in theclass. said "I was kind of hesitant about
breathing underwater at first, but I got used to it."
In lessons, ile students earned buoyancy control, how to move and kick underwater and clear '
a foggy mask. The students also learned the importance of equalizing to avoid ear problems, and
breathing ccntinuousiy to avoid possible lung rupture or fatal injury.
After fine tuning their. skills in the poo, the class took a trip to Ginnie Springs, a campground
and dive site near Gainesviile. Leaving early in the morning on December 2, they traveled north .-
to spend a weekend camping and diving. The trip was not associated with the school, and each
student paid his o; her owr way. :
For student, Lindsey Dorman, her experience underwater in the 72 degrees Fahrenheit spring ,, :
was cool-- iiteraliy. "The water was freezing," Dorman said, "but it was nice to go somewhere
besides a poo!
As for stiden.. Jordan Bridges, his favorite part of the trip was the "drift dive." The drift dive involves using the current of the river to take divers
downstream :nto the main spring.
By comp'ic'ir g thcs:. dives, the students earned their certification of Open Water Divers. meaning they can go diving anywhere in the world with
proof of certification. Colonel Mike Butler, principal of Summerlin, wanted to include a scuba program in the curriculum because, he said, "Scuba is
good for building character. It teaches safety-and helps to overcome ecal. all the whiie building skills. Besides, it is a fun thing to do and diving can
be done for ai lifetime "

Club 'Bible Studies on


BY JOSETTE SOUZA


It is that time of the year again when lights adorn houses, familiar seasonal songs
play, and gifts are given to loved ones near and far. The holidays also represent a
busy time for club members all around the campus, from community service to
preparing for Noel.

The Anime Table is a club that just had its first meeting December 6. The club,
started by BHS sophomores Josh Tyson and Courtn6y Slocum, has a diverse mixture
of Bartow, IB, and Summerlin members. As of the end of December, the club met
biweekly in sponsor Mrs. Heather Snyder's room, 506, to learn Japanese writing and
enjoy other Japanese cultural enrichments.

The French club (Cercle Francois) meets twice a month in French teacher David
Lenker's room, 607. They will compete in March in Congres, a state competition in
Orlando, and the county language competition at Florida Southern College. Mem-
bers are currently rehearsing for a French-language play they will perform at the
state competition and working on a club scrapbook. Fundraisers conducted this
school year include a car wash and selling roses to cover Congres expenses.

Future Farmers ofAmerica is for any student whether they enjoy regular agricultural
classes or not. Club members learn about agriculture and leadership. Student-made
projects on plants and animals are showcased in the annual Youth Fair. A Parliamen-
tary Procedure Contest is in the works as a new addition this year.


Grant May Supply Student Laptops


BY KAYLA TAYLOR


Click, click, click loudly sounds throughout one classroom as the fingers of thirty
students run across the keyboards of thirty laptops. Owning a laptop is becom-
ing more and more popular among Bartow High, Summerlin Academy, and Inter-
national Baccalaureate students as technology increases and.classes become more
rigorous. While many students have laptops of their own and some bring them to
school to use in their classes, there are still more students without access to a laptop
and lack the luxury of using one.
Laptops, as all technological devices, have shortcomings and problems. "They
break too easily," said freshman Shane McNutt who once dropped his laptop. Lap-
tops are often dropped from different heights and to different degrees, whether it
be from the corner of a desk in classroom or out of a backpack. "They don't have
a long enough battery life," said McNutt as another reason he had not brought his
laptop to school.
Another reason not to bring laptops to school has emerged. Recent thefts on cam-
pus have also caused students to exercise more caution in bringing their computers. Several laptops have
been stolen from different locations on campus from administration and teachers alike. Jon Garrison,
an IB Geometry and BHS Algebra Honors teacher remarked that laptops "get stolen way too easily."
Laptops also disappear from buses.
"Students leave their laptops unattended, and assume that people are honest," said Dr. Ed Veger, IB
pnncipal. However, he said that laptops in general "are a great tool to have." He said that the school is
trying to get grants to buy laptops for all the students at BHS to give all students access to the school
network and hopefully input some interactive programs for classes on the Bartow campus. This will
give every student, even the ones who already have laptops, a school-based laptop with access to the
school.
Laptops are indeed a great tool for students in doing homework assignments, taking notes and doing
online research for any and every class, "the greatest thing since sliced bread," said Garrison. However,
students need to be careful when bringing them to school.






I am concerned about the school board's cell phone policy. How is it going to help students get-
ting to use the phone on breaks? How does it affect our grades? Was there any major increase in
our grades from last year? Are the kids doing better in school? Did the board change the policy i
because of the number of the cell phones teachers confiscated each year? Will this policy be still
in effect next year, or is it just a trial thing?
Sincerely,
Alka Nair, a senior.

It would not be scientific to attempt to explain any difference in students' grades last year to this
year as a result of the change in the student cell phone policy at BHS. There are several educa-
tional programs and strategies that were implemented this year that were not in place last year.
Thus, trying to show a causal relationship between cell phone policy and student achievement
from last year to this year is inappropriate.

Emilean Clemons, Assistant Principal
Cell phones have become a student must-have in this day and age, from calling home for
rides, such as sophomore Suma Metla does after school, to checking homework assign-
ments with friends. Photo Credit: Jass Ouhri.


Campus


BY SHELBY MERRITT


Twice a week, a group of BHS students gather in room 701 for lunch. How many oth-
er students know about these gatherings, and what are they about? They are Bible study
groups, and so far they have attracted little attention.
In mid-October, students Jaimi Ashe and John Holloway, who both attend First Baptist
Church at the Mall in Lakeland, wanted'to organize a group focused on peer advice based
on moral standards set down by the Bible. They yvent to BHS teacher Dana Wiltrout, a
reading teacher in the Freshmen Center, to ask if they could use her room for the bi-weekly
meetings.
Meetings for boys and girls are separate. Boys attend sessions on Mondays and girls on
Tuesday. The conferences were originally intended to be focused on personal integrity,
but have expanded into more general topics like ethics and the common problems that all
teens face.
"The meetings are open to anyone. I think people are just timid about it," said Wiltrout,
who acts as an advisor during the sessions. "Anyone open-minded is welcome to come in
and listen; they don't have to add anything to the discussion."
However, there has been some controversy on the legality of having religious groups such
as prayer meetings during school hours. According to Mr. Pritchard, this is not an issue.
"Students have varied interests, and there are various religious organizations within the
school. There is no problem as long as the students are not forced to attend," he said. There
is no school .board policy prohibiting such organizations, and Fellowship of Christian Ath-
letes (FCA) is a popular club.in many. high schools in the area, including George Jenkins
and Winter Haven High School. Though the bible study groups held in Wiltrout's room are
not yet recognized as a club, that may change in the next year.


Website Lets Students

Rate Teachers

BY TREY SARRATT

RateMyTeachers.com is a website that is growing in popularity. It allows students to
find one of their teachers on the BHS page, rate them based on the easiness of their work,
helpfulness, and clarity based on a scale of 1-5. Visitors can even rate teachers on their
popularity by giving them a "cool" or a "not cool' rating. The overall score of a teacher is
represented by a smiling,'frowning, or "neutral" face. Then participants are able to leave
a comment about their teacher, stating what they like or dislike about them. Students can
even leave a comment on another rater's comment.
There is some concern about whether Bartow High students would abuse this right and
flame their teachers anonymously. Freshman Josh Wescott says, "I wouldn't be dumb
enough to try and cheat the system and abuse [the power]. I hope that no Bartow kids
would try to do that.".
RateMyTeachers also contains a newsletter highlighting new teachers and schools, an
online forum for students to debate on why a certain teacher deserves a certain rating and a
Hall of Fame for the highest rated teachers on the website.
The Bartow High page of RateMyTeachers currently has fewer than ten teachers listed,
and there has been littleto no activity in the past year or two. Because of this, visitors to
the Bartow page cannot be informed about a teacher giving too much homework or being
extremely helpful to his or her students. The website gives upperclassmen the opportunity
to tell their-younger peers about their future teachers.
The few ratings BHS teachers have been given are generally high, emanating the apprecia-
tion Bartow students have for their teachers. In that sense, the website RateMyTeachers.
corn benefits the reputation of the entire BHS faculty and staff.

Students. Participate in


Christmas Parade


BY ANGELA LEWIS

As the holiday season began, students at Bartow High School had the opportunity to be a part of traditional
Bartow festivities welcoming the season. One such opportunity was the annual Bartow Christmas Parade.
This year's parade was held on the evening of Tuesday, December 5. Although no one could have guessed
Christmas was a mere 20 days away by the warmer-than-normal temperatures, the holiday spirit bubbled
over amongst parade participants and spectators alike. BHS organizations, including BHS junior varsity
and varsity cheerleaders, Student Educators Association and Key
Club were represented by floats in the parade. Members of the
SEA rode on and walked beside their float decorated with many
Christmas trees and enthusiastic students wrapped up in boxes
S like Christmas gifts. The Yellow Jacket band and dance team
brought holiday cheer to the streets of downtown Bartow, enter-
training parade goers with traditional holiday tunes like "Angels
Sat Christmas."
For as long as residents of Bartow can remember, the parade
has taken a'route from IMC Park down the long stretch of Main
Street until reaching the area around the Country Chicken and
Fish restaurant. Due to the recent beginning of a demolition of Philip's Antique Store located on 330 East
Main Street, the parade took a slight detour down Wilson Avenue. Large floats had a difficult time maneuver-
ing through the narrow intersection of East Main and Wilson, but spectators did not seem to mind the slight
slowdown. In the end it was a night full of entertainment, music, and nostalgia as students had the privilege
to be a part of this long standing Bartow tradition.



Skipping School Drops Grades

BY JILL SHAH

Skipping school seems to some like an simply a part of high school life. As one is eating lunch, common
conversations include those about skipping school the next day to avoid a test, or for a change of pace. Stu-
dents see this as an innocuous act, without much harm done, as Cyria Kelly, a tenth grade Bartow High School
student said, "I've skipped school before, and I know it's common, but I think it depends on how much you do
it before it matters. I mean, sometimes you just get tired and need a break from school."
However, skipping may not be as harmless as we think. Poor attendance in classes may lead to increased
chances of dropping out and failing grades. The reason for this, said Lee Putnam, Freshmen Center Dean, is
because "You need to be here to learn." It can be seen that if a student is tardy to a certain class, nine times out
of ten, that is the student's worst grade.
So is the possibility of failing or dropping out, not to mention breaking the law, worth a day of freedom?
Some students think so, such as ninth grader Nikki Walker, who said, "Sometimes it's actually better for your
grades, because you might need more time to study or something."
What would Putnam tell those students who skip school frequently? "Shame on you. It might take time, but
you will be caught."

Book Fair Selection


"Thin"


High school has the word "high" in it for a reason. No, not that kind of high. I mean
"high" as in "higher learning." By the time students have reached the ninth, tenth,
eleventh and twelfth grades, we should be on a more elevated level of academic
skills. We have moved on from counting on our fingers to multiplying binomials,
from sounding out words to identifying their Latin roots in order to discern their
meanings at least, we should have made that transition.
Yet the Scholastic Book Fair held at BHS in December featured books like Hip Hop
Kidz: Bring It On and Lizzie McGuire: Broken Hearts. These books barely approach
one hundred pages in length; they are aimed, according to amazon.com, for fifth
grade through seventh grade readers. How did they find their ways into a high school
book fair? Worse, why were they only two of a large population of elementary and
middle school level books present at our book fair?
There are logical reasons to explain their presence. Polk County is home to a large
Hispanic population that is still learning English as a second language. The content
of seventh and eighth grade books is at the right level to cultivate their English skills.
Polk County is also home to a high concentration of teenage mothers, so perhaps the
elementary level books were furnished for the offspring of BHS students.
Unfortunately, however, the truth is that thin, preadolescent-aimed books are all
that a frighteningly large portion of today's high school students can handle. The
introduction of study guides like SparkNotes and Cliffnotes have eliminated the need
for students to actually read The Scarlet Letter and allowed them instead to read its
synopsis in dumbed-down versions.
Recent research by associations like the Alliance for Excellent Education has un-
earthed a startling statistic: only 50% of the college-bound students who took the
ACT were prepared for the level of reading required in college. Furthermore, over 6
million middle and high school students are not even at their grade reading level.
In the past few years, countless secondary schools have employed reading teachers
employed for the express purpose of teaching reading to students. That used to be a
job reserved only for elementary school teachers!
The point here is that the presence of 90-page books at our book fair should serve as
a wake-up call. Literacy has gone up in smoke, and without it, the nation of America
will be hard-pressed to keep up with the nations to whom we outsource our jobs.
We, as a generation, must take action. We may not be able to completely salvage our
generation's reading skills, but we can preserve those of younger generations by tak-
ing part in programs like Teen Trendsetters and by encouraging our younger siblings
to read instead of plopping down with their Wii, and, of course by participating in
Silent Reading on Wednesdays and paying attention to the enlightening Words of the
Week.

Mommy, Where Do Choco Tacos Come From?

"Mommy, where do choco tacos come from?"
Well, Jimmy, once upon a time there was a dazzling, dashing taco named Paco.
Paco Taco's best friend was Berto Burrito.
One day Berto Burrito introduced Paco Taco to his friend Charlotte Chocolate who
was as cute as a canary cupcake.
Charlotte Chocolate and Paco Taco fell in love as surely as gravy lava pours out of
the mashed potato volcano.

"What did they do when they were in love?"
They did something that is formidably forbidden for food to fulfill:
They squandered away time in each other's section of the grocery store.
Berto Burrito spent hours amongst the foil and the vermilion and peacock colors of
the candy constituency.
And Charlotte Chocolate whiled away her time in the spicy Spanish subsistence
subdivision.

"But where do choco tacos come in?"
One day, Berto and Charlotte decided that they loved each other with the fiery
power of one million bottles of Tobasco sauce,
so they decided to have a baby.
Charlotte gushingly, mushingly melted into a savory sauce of chocolate goodness.
Saucy Charlotte merged with Paco coating his toppings with russet running relish.

"Ewwwww. That's nasty."
That is where choco tacos come from;
They are the offspring of Paco Taco and Charlotte Chocolate.
Without their undying love'that lasts as long as the aftertaste of garlic, you would
not
have the ideal ice cream, the choice chocolate, and the savory shell of the luscious
choco taco.
Jimmy shrugged and devoured the sorrel and snowy splendor of the choco taco.
