County May Demolish Bartow's


Historic Cigar Factory Building


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

It may be on the National Register of Historic Places, but the
Thompson and Co. Cigar Factory in Bartow may also be marked for
destruction.
The building, at 235 North Third Avenue, has been owned by the
county since 1968, but was last used in 1989, when it was closed out
of concern for the presence of asbestos and pigeon droppings.
The county declared the building as surplus in December of 2002.
"Things have gotten more dangerous since the hurricanes," Polk
Facilities Management Division Director Terry Pittman said.
While no final decisions have been made, Pittman said the staff is
assessing the building's value by working on an architectural assess-
ment, a Realtor's assessment and an appraisal.


Once the county has that information, Pittman said a recommen-
dation will be brought before the board of county commissioners.
"We want to find the best and greatest opportunity for the building
and the land, and we plan to see if the county or city of Bartow has
any use for the building before a final decision is made," he said.
Pittman said the county worked with the residents of East Bartow
during the destruction of the psych ward at the old Polk General
Hospital, and said the county plans to work with residents this time
as well.
In the past, the Bartow Rotary Club has expressed interest in
cleaning up and restoring the building, possibly as a cultural center,
but was unable to secure funding for the project.
According to the Florida Department of State, listing in the
National Register does not automatically preserve a building or keep
it from being modified or destroyed.


Ordinance Procedure, Ametek


Purchase, On Tonight's Agenda


1Bartow city commissioners
may adopt a new procedure for
enacting ordinances tonight, and
will hold a public hearing on pur-
chasing the Ametek manufactur-
ing plant on West Polk Street.
The Ametek plant is being
vacated, and the city has negoti-
ated to buy the building for $2.6
million. If purchased, the build-
ing would :house several city
departments.
The .commission passed the
purchase ordinance on first read-
ing on Jan. 16, and will-hold a
public hearing before taking final
action' at tonight'Q meeting.
The commission will meet at
5 30'this afternoon for a work ses-
sl6no ard will reconvene- at 6:30
for its regular business meeting.
iAt the work session, City Atty.
Q.orge Dunlap will present the
fial draft of a proposal to limit
public input when the city adopts
ordinancess.
-The new procedure would pro-
hibit audience comment, except
fr6m the city staff, at first read-
irg, and would virtually mandate
thl~ commission to adopt ordi-


nances on first reading, leaving
the final decision for second read-
ing.
Dunlap developed and refined
the proposed policy after getting
input from the commissioners
over the past several months.
Under the new procedure, the
caption of the ordinance would be
read on first reading, and the
mayor would have the option of
asking for a staff report, not to
exceed ,10 minutes.
Commissioners would be allowed
to ask questions of staff members.
The mayor would then call for
a vote. Dunlap's proposal reads:
"Only under extraordinary cir-
cumstances should this vote be
negative, (and never regarding a
quasi-judicial matter, such as
zonings, rezonings, plat
approvals, etc.)."
When the ordinance is consid-
ered on second .(final). reading
(normally at the commission's
next meeting), a staff report not
to exceed 10 minutes would be
made. The applicant (in land use
ordinances) would be given 15
minutes to make an opening


statement, and five minutes for
rebuttal at the close of the hear-
ing.
*Each member of the audience
would have five minutes to speak
on the issue, unless two other
people in the audience yielded
theii" time to him, iri which case
the speaker would have 15 min-
utes.
Time spent by speakers
answering questions from the
commission would not count
against their allotted minutes.
Speakers would be urged not to
repeat arguments made by prior
speakers, and the policy would
prohibit !'clapping, shouting,
hooting and the like from the
audience."
The commission's vote would
come at the close of the hearing.
In his memo submitting the
policy, Dunlap urged the commis-
sion to follow it "for at least sev-
eral months to see how it works."
Last year, the commission
attempted to switch to a proce-
dure in which it did not even take
a vote on first reading, but
returned to the practice of voting


on first reading because the new
policy caused so much confusion.
Other items on tonight's agen-
da:
A public hearing an final vote
on an ordinance to allow perma-
nent placement of snack wagons
like the one at Lowe's.
First reading of an ordinance
authorizing the city to buy a par-
cel of land at 1020 East Wabash
St. from Johnny L. and Iola Jones
for $13,400. The city wants to buy
the land to solve a drainage prob-
lem.
Recognition of winners of the
city's annual water conservation
poster contest.
Authorization for the Bartow
Police Dept. to use forfeiture
funds to purchase tasers.
Approval of an agreement
with the supervisor of elections to
conduct the April 3 city election.
*Appointment of City Clerk
Linda Culpepper to represent the
city at a test of voting equipment.
Discussion of two appoint-
ments to the zoning board.

A former Bartow woman spent
the longest 15 seconds of her life.
in a closet riding out the torna-
does that devastated four Florida
counties early Friday morning.
Amanda King, who lives in A
Better Place manufactured home
community, just west of
Beresford, near DeLand, was one
of the lucky ones when it came to
damage of her home, but spent
some harrowing time in her clos-
et as the storm hit.
She was lying in bed trying to
sleep, when the storm started
right after 4 a.m.
"It got really bad; really, really
loud," she said. She ran in her
closet and closed the door. The
wall started ,shaking, she said,
but it probably lasted just 15 sec-
onds.
Amanda, her roommate and
her cat were not injured, but their
home was damaged when a tree
fell on the carport, and something
punched a hole in a wall.
"It was nothing in comparison
to other people," she said.
The park across the street,
Hawthorne Hills,.is gone for the
most part.
Amanda, a 'student at the
Daytona campus of the
University of Central Florida, is
the "daughter of Mark and
Carolyn King, and spent a few
days here in Bartow with her
family before heading back home
for classes.

President George Bush
declared Lake, Seminole, Sumter,
and Volusia counties a major dis-
aster area, and David Paulison,
director of the U.S. Department
of Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) said that federal disaster
aid has been made available to
help people and communities
recover from the effects of the
severe storms and tornadoes.
Florida National Guard sol-
diers are assisting storm victims,
establishing emergency water
and ice distribution
Gov. Charlie Crist issued an
executive order declaring a state
of emergency in Lake, Seminole,
Sumter and Volusia counties.
Following the order, the Florida


National Guard activated plan-
ning cells to work with state and
local emergency responders, and
provided three UH-60 Black
Hawk helicopters for officials to
survey damage from the air.
Also assisting in the recovery,
serving and preparing meals and
snacks for victims and emergency
responders, and providing shelter
are The Salvation Army and The
Red Cross.

tary donations can do so via 1-
800-Sal-Army or www.salvation-
armyusa.org, or by mail, The
Salvation Army Disaster Relief
Fund, P.O. Box 270848, Tampa
Fla, 33618.
The Red Cross website,
www.redcross.org, features a
secure section called Safe and
Well where people in the affected
area can register their well-being
and where friends and family
elsewhere can access that infor-
mation.
"If you hear from a loved one
without access to a computer in
the affected area, you can register
them yourself through Safe and
Well," said Joe Becker, senior vice
president of disaster prepared-
ness and response for the
American Red Cross. "That way,
other loved ones can be reassured
as well. You can play a part in the
disaster relief effort, right from
your own home."

By LETA WRIGHT

Several months ago I received
a letter from Leola Hancock
Pullin, giving me some informa-
tion concerning her father,
James Arthur Hancock.
Her dad graduated from Fort
Meade schools and the family
lived about five miles southwest
of Fort Meade on a farm. In
1902, he attended Stetson Uni-
versity in DeLand and received a
civil service surveyor degree to
become a licensed civil engineer
to survey.
He was the surveyor for build-
ing the Pembroke mine around
1909 until it was finished. He
worked for Maurice Richie, who
was a Frenchman and a contrac-
tor. Her dad thought so much of
Richie that he named her third
brother after him when he was
born in March 1911.
She had some pictures of the
laying of the foundation for Pem-
broke mine with her dad and Ri-
chie.
In her mother's diary was a
note from Leila Underhill, who
was her mother's school teacher
and also boarded with her grand-
parents, Willoughbly Whidden
and Susan Durrance Whidden.
She was Leila Fitch's mother,
and Leila Fitch was Leola's
ninth grade history teacher.
She wrote that her father sur-

veyed about half of Polk County
in the early 1900s until the
1940s. He surveyed the building
of a concrete road from Brewster
to Highway 92 and from
Wauchula to Palmetto in the
1930s.
He and the older generations
were positive that the founda-
tion was solid and was built to
last forever, not knowing that fu-
ture engineers would come along
and build greater things that we
now see crumbling, because the
foundation was not solid enough.
She wrote that in the early
1930s that my dad, E.F.
Mitchell, leased between 40 and
80 acres of land from her dad to
grow watermelons. The whole
season went by and her five
-brothers, who still lived at home,
never heard of anyone stealing
watermelons.
She wished in her letter that
she could easily have been able
to fill a book of stories of her
family life, but, now at 85, she
could not remember everything.
She was the only daughter and
learned many lessons from her
brothers.
Leola passed on a couple of
months ago, but she gave pic-
tures to the Museum of two of
her brothers in military uniform.
Hancock is remembered as a
very prominent citizen of Fort
Meade and Polk County.
If any of you readers have


some human interest stories of
past Fort Meade families, please
let me know and we'll share
them.

Polk County Leisure Services
will host the third annual Sweet-
heart Swing at the Polk County
Historical Museum in Bartow on
Saturday, Feb. 10, from 6 to 10
p.m.
This unforgettable event is
modeled after a 194's canteen
party, and the public is encour-
aged to come dressed in swing or
military-inspired garb.
"This event appeals to people
of all ages because it really al-
lows them to take part in some-
thing unique," said Brandy
Gray, recreation coordinator
with Polk County's Leisure Serv-
ices.
Adding to the mood, this
year's event will feature Vivac-
ity, a swing band from Orlando.
Inexperienced dancers can set
their minds at ease, as the band
also will provide one hour of
swing dande lessons at the be-
ginning of the evening.
Refreshments will be served
throughout the night, and there
will also be raffle drawings, a
military exhibit, photo opportu-
nities and a game room.
The Historical Museum is lo-


cated at 100 E. main Street in
Downtown Bartow.
Tickets are on sale now at the
museum and Polk County Lei-
sure Services Office, 515 E.

Editorial


Non-Smoking Policy Will


Help People Live Longer


Lake Wales Medical Center made an
announcement last week that is either
courageous or outrageous, depending on
whether or not you smoke.
Put us in the "courageous" column.
LWMC announced that on Feb. 14 it will
ban use of tobacco products anywhere on
its property.
Even in the parking lot.
Even in parked cars.
No smoking; no chewing; no dipping.
The rule applies to everyone: employees,
patients, medical staff, volunteers, visitors,
vendors ... as in "What part of 'everyone'
do you not understand?"
Tobacco is not a moral issue; it is not a
product used by "bad people."
Tobacco is a public health issue.
It is the only product sold lawfully in the
United States that has been proven to
cause illness and death when used as
directed. There is no "safe" tobacco-prod-
uct.
Florida law already bans smoking
indoors in most buildings accessible to the
public, including newspaper offices and
printing plants. We welcomed that law; it
gave us the backbone to do something we
had wanted to do for years: to ban smok-
ing in our buildings.
With the increasing volume of informa-
tion becoming available about the harmful
effects of secondhand smoke, Florida's
Clean Indoor Air Act was a logical and
needed protection of public health.
While exposure to secondhand smoke in
designated outdoor smoking .areas is
arguably less intensive than in a building,


there is exposure nonetheless.
As a facility dedicated to saving liv.
and restoring health, it is logical that a ho
pital would take the next step and ba
smoking anywhere on its campus.
It is both a public health issue and
property rights issue. A business clear
has the right to regulate or ban what
deems to be harmful conduct on its pro]
erty.
Lake Wales Medical Center will off
smoking cessation classes and nicotir
replacement therapy to employees wh
want to kick the habit, and nicotir
replacement products to patients whe
authorized by their doctors.
Lvv'MC's move is a bold one that will I
applauded by non-smokers and assailed
by si: kiers.
We applaud it.
In the final analysis, the hospital is doir
its part in still another way to help peop
live longer.

Truth be known, I am not look-
ing for another part-time job.
For 30 years, while employed
at The Polk County Democrat in
es jobs of' increasing responsibility
,S_ (thanks, Dad), I served in the
SFlorida National Guard.
I retired in 1995, thanks to a
well thought-out law that
a requires old colonels to get out of
ly the way so that some young guy
it smarter than you can take your
p_ place. Incidentally, that's how I
got promoted, so I think it's a
great system.
er When I retired from the
le Guard, Mary asked what I was
10 going to do with my spare time.
ie Maybe sleep late on Saturdays, I
n told her.
Instead, I bought The Lake
Wales News.
A few weeks ago, Mary and I,
?d sold our four newspapers (The
Democrat, The News, The Fort
Meade Leader, and Polk County
g Times) to Sun Coast Media
le Group. It was a good decision,
and I would do it again in a
heartbeat.
No, read the fine print. We are
not retiring. We each have a
three-year employment contract
with Sun Coast, and frankly, one
month and change into the transi-
tion, I think they are getting their
money's worth. Of course, that's
just my opinion.
None of this has anything to
do with today's epistle, as long-
time readers (if there are any) of
this column will find to be unre-
markable.
To repeat the opening premise,
I am not looking for a part-time
job, thank you.
But if I were, I think I have
found one that makes sense.
Unless, of course, you want to be
paid for it, which so often is the


rationale behind a second job.
Honorary Consul.
Diplomat Without Portfolio.
Hot shot who doesn't amount
to anything.
Able to beat speeding tickets
with a single wink.
The nation of Austria has
selected a guy from Orlando.to be
its honorary consul in Orange
County.
The new consul, his
Something-or-Otherness Toby
Unwin, has never been to
Austria, or any other European
country. He doesn't, speak
Austrian, a language that doesn't
exist, or even German, which is
what they speak in Austria.
He says it's a tough language
to learn, and I'll accept that on
faith. He says that all Austrians
with whom he has come into con-
tact which probably isn't
many, since he's never been to
Austria speak flawless
English.
That's remarkable, and proba-
bly stems from the fact that most
Austrians have not visited
America, where few people
speak flawless English. They
haven't picked up our bad lin-
guistic habits.
His Consulness, a native of
England, where they speak
English with a funny accent,
applied for the job of Honorary
Consul to (or is it from?) Austria,
probably in response to an
Internet blast mailing, though
that is only a guess on my part.
He had the two requisite qual-
ifications, according to the
Associated Press:
(1) He passed a background
check.
(2) He's rich.
(3) Not necessarily in that
order.


He, like all the 1,038 honorary
consuls of foreign governments
in the United States, is technically
a foreign diplomat, which entitles
him to such things as exemption
from speeding tickets and park-
ing tickets, if the local constabu-
laries understand the meaning of
the license plate on his presum-
ably pretty nice car.
In Washington, D.C., they
understand stuff like that; I'm not
sure how that shows,up on the
radar in Polk County, Florida.
Typically, these honorary con-
suls operate out of.their homes,
because that makes it pretty
cheap for the countries whom
they represent. And local code
enforcement officers may be
reluctant to take on a foreign gov-
ernment over operation of a con-
sulate in a zone which only
allows only code minimum hous-
ing.
In the case of Toby Unwin, he
got three flags (the story didn't
say if they were all Austrian; per-
haps two of them were for the
Super Bowl teams), a map of
Austria (in case he ever wants to
go there), and a CD and sheet
music for European anthems.
(My personal favorites are God
Save the Weasel and Pop Goes
the Queen.)
Okay, I've got a job. I'm not
looking for another one.
But if you've got a few hours a
week on your hands, and a spare
bedroom in which to establish a
foreign embassy, be my guest.
Before you make a commit-
ment, you might find out if the
local constabulary will really
exempt you from parking tickets.
If not, it may not be worth the
trouble.
Except that it would look real
nice in your obituary,


ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

The Big Garbage Can Lids Scam


"My cigarette company sent me this after that story about
brain damage stopping the urge to smoke."

GUEST COLUMN / By JIM GOUVELLIS


How Long

TALLAHASSEE I started to
wish my last name was People.

Watching Gov. Charlie Crist
speak to the reporters and editors
at the Associated Press legislative
planning session on Wednesday, it
was apparent that Crist is:taking
this "People's Governor" stuff seri-
ously.
"We are all in this together," he
told us. "You provide the window
into the world of the people's gov-
ernment."
People is how Charlie Crist got
Florida's top job.
I remember interviewing him in
our Charlotte Harbor office during
his unsuccessful bid for the U.S.
Senate years ago. He met me once
in a group of people for about an
hour.
Later, I saw him in a meeting in
Tallahassee. I was sitting in the
front row and during a lull in the
proceedings he turned to me and
said, "Hi, Jim, how are you?"
This governor is one of the most
able politicians I have ever seen.
He makes people his business. We
have always known that about
Charlie. The difference now is that
a lot of people are starting to think
that his political persona might
actually be who he really is.


Will 'The People' Reign?


More than one person I spoke
with said that when you talk with
the governor privately, he is just as
corny and nice as he appears in
public.
The governor has been talking
about "The People" for years. Now,
that's all he talks about. He spoke
for less than an hour and it was
crystal clear that "The People" is
now part of the official language of
the Charlie Crist government.
Crist has already thumped the
insurance industry pretty good in
his first month in office. He
responded, for better or worse, to
the insurance crisis in a way that
would have made Willy Stark ("All
the King's Men") proud.. People
first, business second.
He is going after local govern-
ment officials now, saying that they
are not good stewards of "the peo-
ple's money."
He might be right; he might be
wrong. I don't know, and I've
asked our editors and reporters to
find out if that is true of our local
governments. But one thing is clear
- when it comes to any controver-
sial issue, our governor is going to
govern as though there was an
election right around the bend.
It is certainly refreshing to see


the state's top leader take on these
issues and talk about our interests
aS though they are more important
than a giant industry.
It is a nice change to see that we
are going to open up our govern-
ment more with his open govern-
ment initiative and requiring state
workers to write rules and regula-
tions in a language that is foreign to
them English.
If you are going to take the pop-
ulist approach to governing, you
probably should try to get most of
your people pleasing done in the
beginning of your tenure. After
some time, the bureaucracy or your
own sense' of self-importance
brings you down..
During the campaign, Crist said
over and over that Jeb Bush was
the best governor the state ever
had. What I heard him say to my
colleagues last week was that he
intends to govern a lot differently.
My personal opinion is that all
of this is very exciting and inspir-
ing. But I wonder how long Charlie
can govern with "The People" as
his only ally.

(Jim Gouvellis is executive editor of
Sun Coast Media Group newspapers.)


I have just realized that there is
an enormous theft ring going on
right under our noses.
This really stinks to high heaven.
As far as I know, the general pub-
lic has not given this any thought at
all. And it is happening on your
street as well as mine, all across this
country.,
This realization popped into my
head yesterday. I made out my "to
do" list, which included buying dog
food, dishwasher soap, and three
garbage can lids.
I have four garbage cans sitting
out in my carport. Three of them do
not have lids. I took 'a pencil and
paper and tape measure and went
out to measure the ones without lids
so that when I got to the hardware
store, I would have the information
I needed to get some new lids. Each
of them had a different color and
dimension.
I have done business with this
hardware store for years. It has
everything. I have never been disap-
pointed when I went there.
Until yesterday.
I bought a big black spring to
keep the pull-down stairs in the car-
port up and out of the way. When
the pest control man was here, he


pulled on the rope for the stairs and
they landed with a crash. I was glad
my car wasn't under it. That day
wasn't starting out right.
The pest control man came down
and told me I had roaches and mice
in my attic. 1 was ready to put the
house on the market and move
when I heard that. It gave me the
cold shudders. He told me that this
wasn't unusual.
I don't know where he goes on
his rounds, but I wouldn't want to
live in that neighborhood. I was
wondering what the neighbors
would think if they found out. I had
a mental image of them peeping out
of their -windows at the truck
parked in my driveway that said,
"Complete Exterminations! Mice,
Rats, Roaches and All Kinds of
Varmints" on both sides. I couldn't
ask him to park behind the house
because of the fence.
I signed a contract with him that
assured me that he would take care
of my varmints for the rest of my
natural life.
I then turned my attention to
garbage can lids. I measured each
one that needed a lid color, size,
rectangular, square, round, etc. -
and went to the hardware store.


The garbage cans were in a screened
area on the front of the store.
I was measuring lids when this
man came.out and asked if he could
help me. I told him he sure could
and handed him the list. He studied
it for a minute and said, "We don't
sell lids. We sell the whole thing. If
we sold lids, we wouldn't come out
even."
I told him that I was missing
three lids and I wasn't coming out
even, either. He told me that he
could sell me as many cans and lids
as I wanted.
That's when 1 realized what a
huge scam was rampant in my
neighborhood, and yours. There
were lid thieves going 'around
behind the garbage:trucks and mak-
ing off with the lids that were
thrown on the ground or in the
street.
What a sneaky way to make a liv-
ing. They probably own the compa-
ny that manufactures the cans and
make double the money selling the
lids again.
Keep, your eyes peeled on
garbage day. When these thieves
come along, write down their tag
numbers and call the police.

Fort Meade Jamboree

Continues On Feb. 10


By PRISCILLA PERRY
Staff Writer .

Residents and winter visitors
may have thought it was all
over, but the Fort Meade Jambo-
ree will continue.
The Jamboree was thought to
have held its last show Dec. 8,
when Lee DeVane retired from
the 18-year tradition of monthly
entertainment.
But new life has been
breathed into the event.
Once again the Fort Meade
Outdoor Recreation Area, lo-
cated on Peace River on High-
way 98 East, will be the site for
local gospel and country talent to
perform.
Mary Wooten and John John-
son have taken on the job of
hosting, scheduling, and manag-
ing the Jamboree.
Ms. Wooten and Johnson took
over management so quickly
that a Jamboree took place in
January without missing a note.
Fort Meade Jamboree is
scheduled for the second Satur-
day of the month from 5 to 8
p.m. There is no charge for the
show, but donations are appreci-
ated for upkeep.
"Mosquito bombs will be set
off prior to the show," Mrs. Woo-
ten said regarding that perpet-
ual problem. "People can be com-
fortable, bring their lawn chairs,
sit back and tap their feet to the
music.

gation of Lakeland, 3140 Troy
Ave., Lakeland.
C. Ann Staley will discuss
"Directories, A Line by Line Ac-
counting of our Ancestors."


gins at 5 p.m. with John and
Mary (country/gospel), Jim Wat-
son will offer country music at
5:45, at 6:30 Sonny Davis will
perform gospel, with John and
Mary performing again at 7:15.
The show will end at 8 p.m.
New talent is invited to pre-
pare a short demo for audition
purposes.

SIn honor of the 97th anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scouts of
America, we'd like to salute the current and past Scouts and volunteer '. ,-
Sleaders who have served our community and our nation in so many
ways. -

SScouting teaches boys how to become men, how to be prepared for
life and how to achieve.

SThrough all the stages of scouting, boys grow and explore, learning :
About others and the world around them.

SThroughout it's long history, scouting has helped boys grow physically,
: mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Turning the boys of today into the men of tomorrow that's what scout-
ing is all about.

Much of her current research
focuses on how the interrelation-
ships of African and indigenous
peoples in the Americas and the
Caribbean relate to cultural
identity.
Her book, "Black Seminoles in
the Bahamas" (2002) explores
both the historical relationships
of Seminole Indians and Black
Seminoles, and their present-day
descendants in Florida.
Her latest research involves,
an interdisciplinary project, "
Looking for Angola," about a ma-
roon community formerly located
near Sarasota, that could have
direct connections to the Baha-
mian Black Seminole descen-
dants on Andros Island.
Her research about the exis-
tence of the Black Seminoles'
pathway to freedom in the Baha-
mas will become part of "The
Slave Route," a project mapping
the African Diaspora that is be-
ing conducted by UNESCO
(United Nations Educational,

Lady Jackets Win Pre-Season Classic


By MARK KING
The Bartow High School Lady
Jackets were excellent hosts to
themselves, as they came away
with the championship victory at
the annual Pre-season Classic at
the BHS softball complex, One
Bug Place, this past Saturday.
Players and fans dared over-
cast skies and came away with
an entire day's worth of excellent
high school softball as four
teams duked it out on the field.
Fans packed the park from
Ocala Forest, Lake Region,
McKeel Academy and, of course,
BHS.
The Bartow Lady Bugs de-
feated their rivals from up the.
road when the Thunder was si-
lenced in the first game. Then, in
a Fight of the Felines, the Wild-
cats of McKeel Academy fell to
the Ocala Forest Lady Cats.


BHS Car

Wash

Feb. 10
Bartow High School students
will be washing cars in a bid to
visit Germany.
The car wash, planned Satur-
day, Feb. 10, from 8 a.m. to 1
p.m. at Wal-Mart in Bartow, will
raise money for the three week
trip in March.
Tickets may be bought in ad-
vance or donations will be ac-
cepted the day of the event.
For more information, call
Lisa Olinger at 533-1209.


FSC Plan

'Blood

Brothers'
Florida Southern College's
theatre arts department per-
forms "Blood Brothers" in the
Loca Lee Buckner Theatre on
the college campus, as part of
FSC's Festival of Fine Arts.
Performances begin at 7:30
p.m. Feb. 15-17 and Feb. 22-24;
matinees start at 2:30 p.m. Feb.
18 and Feb. 25.
Paul Bawek, assistant profes-
sor of theatre, directs the play.
In "Blood Brothers," a hapless
mother with too many children
to support surrenders one of her
newborn twins to a childless
neighboring woman. The two
boys grow up as friends, never
suspecting the truth, but trouble
ensues when they fall hopelessly
in love with the same girl.
This award-winning 1983
British musical, with book, lyr-
ics, and music by Willy Russell,
is one of the longest-running mu-
sicals of all time.
Tickets are $15. FSC students
are admitted free. Non-FSC stu-
dents pay half price.
For ticket information, con-
tact the Branscomb Auditorium
box office at 680-4296.

tunities, strings of tension wait-

In the consolation game, Lake
Region defeated the McKeel
Wildcats, 5-0. The Thunder
roared in the final two innings of
play, scoring one run in the sixth
and racking four more in the top
of the seventh.
Then, at 5 p.m., the Lady
Jackets tussled with the Lady
Cats in a nail-biter. The Bugs
were victorious, winning by the
score of 3 2.
Bartow gave up a run in the
top of the first inning when Brit-
tany Wagner scored on a liner up
the middle by Brooke Bennette.
But the Lady Jackets played
good defense, with pitchers Dan-
ielle Mills and Courtney Putnam
and their defense mates keeping
the Kitties quiet.
In the bottom of the fifth,
BHS scored its first run. Desig-
nated player Jacquelyn Hawley
spanked a base hit with one out.
Brittany Rowlette advanced


Hawley with a base hit, then Tif-
fany Douglas sacrificed into foul
territory along the first base side
to rack Hawley for the tying run.
In the top of the sixth, the
Jackets scored two more runs
when players B. B. "the Gun"
Wyatt and Erin Foley scored for
Bartow. Leading 3-1 going into
the bottom of the seventh, the
Jackets defense allowed one
more run for the Lady Cats, but
held on tough to record the win.
With the preliminaries out of
the way, the real season starts
with an away game on Tuesday,
Feb. 6, with who else? the
Lady Cats of Ocala Forest High
School at 7 p.m. Then, on
Wednesday, the Ladies will host
the Lady Leopards from Her-
nando High in the season home
opener at The Hive. Game time
is 7 p.m.


FWC Steps Up Enforcement

vendors, also are required to
have permits to sell these ducks,
and by law, they cannot sell mal-
lards to anyone who does not
have the proper permit.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
law enforcement officers will be
making routine visits to sellers
of ducks, educating retailers on
the rule and making sure of com-
pliance.
"This is not a new law, but we
are making an effort to make
sure businesses selling mallard
ducks are aware of it and its im-
portance," said Lt. Col. Michael
Wiwi, FWC's deputy director of
law enforcement.
The rule, which also makes it
unlawful to release captive-
reared mallards into the wild,
was passed by the FWC in 2004
to help protect the existence of


the state's native mottled duck
- a unique subspecies found
only in peninsular Florida.
The problem is, these pet mal-
lards do not migrate and once re-
leased, become established, year-
round residents of our state.
When they mate with wild mot-
tled ducks, it pushes Florida's
mottled duck population closer
to extinction.
"Domesticated or feral mal-
lards are crossbreeding with our
mottled duck, producing hybrid
offspring," FWC biologist and
waterfowl management program
coordinator Diane Eggeman
said.
"This is a serious concern and
if not stopped, this hybridization
could result in the extinction of
Florida's mottled ducks."
For more information on this
rule or to learn how you can help
protect Florida's mottled duck,
call the FWC waterfowl office at
850-488-5878, or visit

National Parks


Black History Sites


To celebrate Black History Month,
The Mini Page talked with experts at
the National Park Service. They gave
us this list of some of the most-visited
sites that have been preserved to help
us honor and appreciate the
contributions of African-Americans.
Some sites are buildings, others are
parks, and some are monuments.
Someday you might step back in history
and visit some of these places yourself.
(These sites are arranged alphabetically.)

The Booker T. Washington
National Monument is the
birthplace of this amazing educator.
He was born in Hardy, Va., as a slave
in 1856. He later helped found

Activities:
1. Pick a building or park in your neighborhood that might make a good national park site one day.
