L.B. Brown Heritage Festival Awards
:::Rufus Stephens who received the Distinguished Service Cross for Valor the nation's second high-
est medal for valor, for his service in Vietnam as a first lieutenant in the Army infantry in 1966, was hon-
ored by William P. McCraney, president of the Korean Water Veteran's Association, at the seventh annu-
al L.B. Brown Heritage Festival. While under heavy fire and after his platoon leader was wounded,
Stephens directed medical evacuation crafts to his location, and evacuated the wounded in his. platoon.
Following this act of heroism, Stephens continually put his own safety at risk to control fire support
against insurgent attackers, the
award certification said.
Stephens was honored along .. '
with golfers Richard Lewis and .

It's Purple Martin Time in Florida


Most bird watchers have a
favorite, which for many in
Florida is the mockingbird, the
state bird. But another species,
the purple- martin, generates
enormous excitement and pas-
sion among area bird-watchers.
Because of its geographic loca-
tion, Florida leads the nation in
arrival of purple martins from
their wintering grounds in South
America. Reports of "scouts" are
watched nationally in an online
database at purplemartin.org


- maintained by the Purple
Martin Conservation Association
(PMCA), a nonprofit conserva-
tion organization.
The earliest arriving martin
for two years running has been
reported from Fort Pierce, on
Dec. 11 in 2006 a very early
bird and on Dec. 28 in 2005.
The first purple martin
reported this season in Polk
County was seen on Dec. 31 in
Lakeland.
Floridians have a long tradi-

which they obtain at two years of age. Females are a bit more drab,

tion of hosting purple martins,
which nest in colonies in multi-
compartment bird houses and in
gourds hung from large racks
placed in open areas in yards and
parks statewide. This largest
member of the swallow species is
totally dependent on humans for
housing, and "landlords" anx-
iously await their return each
year.
The term "scout" is a mis-
nomer, according to the PMCA.
These earliest arrivals are sim-
ply experienced older martins
that have made the journey
before and are eager to reclaim
their housing.
Adult male purple martins
are a glossy blue-black in color,
which they obtain at two years
of age. Females are a bit more
drab, with a gray breast. Most
older adults arrive in Florida
after about Jan. 15 and well
into February, according to a
PMCA migration map.
One-year-old martins so
called "sub adults" begin
arriving 10 to 12 weeks after
the older birds in the Deep
South. These younger birds are
more easily attracted to new
housing locations.
As a species, purple martins
are relatively common through-
out Florida, but have experi.
enced a decline in the central
part of the state, based on data
from the North American
Breeding Bird survey. Reasons
are unclear, but probably
include a lack of suitable hous-
ing.
While generations of
Americans have hosted purple
martins the custom adopted
from Native Americans who
hung out nesting gourds spe-
cific techniques to help a colony
thrive have emerged in the past

Four candidates one of
them a 19-year-old Bartow High
School student have qualified
to run for Seat 3 on the Bartow
city commission in the April 3
city election.
On Friday, the last day of the
qualifying period, Rufus
Stepherts, chairman of the
Community Redevelopment
Agency, and James Newberry, a,
senior at BHS, filed their papers
to run for office.
Earlier in the week, Adrian
"A.J." Jackson and Gerald
Cochran filed their qualifying
papers.
Although still in high school,
Newberry meets the require-
ments of the city code to run for
office: a registered voter (which
means he must be at least 18
years old) and a resident of the
district from which he is running
for at least 18 months.
Newberry lives at 930 Shady


With the purchase of 20 sec-
ond-hand Tasers, the Bartow
police department will be able to
equip all of its uniformed officers
and detectives with the non-
lethal devices.
City commissioners approved
the purchase of the M-26 Tasers
from the Coral Gables Police
Department, which is upgrading
to the X-26 model.
Tasers deliver a high-voltage
electric shock through twin
., darts, temporarily disabling agi-
tated suspects, Police Chief Erik
Sandvik said. The department
already had 25 Tasers.
Police Maj. Dennis Hoecherl
said that although the items are
secondhand, they are nonethe-
less new.
The city will use forfeiture
funds to purchase 20 Tasers, 60
15-foot air cartridges, 60 21-foot
air cartridges, and 25 holsters for
$5,401.20. Hoecherl said that
buying the secondhand equip-
Sment will save the city $7,956.
Sandvik said that the 15-foot
cartridges will be used primarily
for training.
The commission also:
Heard Commissioner Leo
Longworth relate "numerous
complaints" from constituents
about the fact that CSX Railroad


Lane. He named his mother,
Nancy Newberry, to be his cam-
paign treasurer.
Stephens, of 750 Baker Ave.,
is making his second run for city
commission. He ran three years
ago, losing to Rosie Thornburg.
Mrs. Thornburg is not seeking
re-election. He named Delphinn
Stephens his campaign treasur-
er.
Stephens will not have to
resign from the CRA board,
which oversees the multimillion-
dollar budget of the Community
Redevelopment Agency, to run
for office, because it is an unpaid
position, City Clerk Linda
Culpepper said. He would have
to resign from the CRA before
taking office as a commissioner.
Cochran, of 1615 East North
St., is a frequent critic of the city
commission and city .govern-
ment. He has run for the com-
mission a number of times, and


closed its crossings at Wabash
Street, Magnolia Street, and
Martin Luther King Boulevard
for repair at the same time, and
didn't put up adequate detour
signs.
Agreed to City Mgr. Joseph
J. DeLegge's request to hold a
half-day goal-setting session, to
be led by Rich Thompson of Polk
Community College.
Was advised by DeLegge
that he will retain the Polk
Community College Corporate
College to conduct an employee
attitude survey of city employ-
ees.
Noted DeLegge's report that
the city has posted new "way-
finding" signs in the downtown
area, and will create matching
street signs and parking signs.
Acknowledged a joint meet-
ing of the city commission and
the Community Redevelopment
Agency on Feb. 13 at 5:30 p.m. to
hear a presentation by the
Bartow Marketing Partnership.
Heard Johnny Jones, a city
employee, commend commission-
ers for their service to-the city,
Noted DeLegge's report that
the city cut down three or four
Chinese tallow trees in
Summerlin Park because they
are considered "extremely inva-


Several railroad crossings and the Wilson

has never been elected.
Jackson, of 690 East Church
St., is a pilot for American
Airlines. He retired last year as a
rear admiral (upper half) in the
Navy Reserve. This is his first
bid for public office.
All candidates for Seat 3 must
live in the city's north election
district. All registered voters who
live within the city limits are eli-
gible to vote in the election. Seat
3 is the only seat coming up for
election this year.
Under a recent change in
Bartow's election code, the win-
ner need not receive a majority of
the votes cast. In elections with
three or more candidates, the
person receiving the most votes
wins, even if receiving less than
half of the votes. There is no run-
off election..
The term of office is three
years.

Lioness Club Hears of Fla. Eye Institute


A DVD produced by Florida
Eye Institute for Transplant and
Research was featured at the
Bartow Lioness Club's regular
business and program meeting
Feb. 5 at the Civic Center.
Located in Ybor City, the insti-
tute has been dedicated to restor-
ing sight through eye donations
for 34 years.
Of the hundreds of thousands
of people who go blind each year,
more than 30 percent have suf-
fered corneal blindness, which is
caused by injury or disease. A
high percentage of corneal blind-


ness can be reversed through tis-
sue harvested from eye donors.
The institute urges people to
become donors through filling out
donor cards.
The program was arranged by
Betty Hain.
"A new member, Mary Sue
Brown, was initiated into the
club. Her sponsors are Edna
Webster and Sara Long.
Marietta King gave a report of
the group's recent tour of Hollis
Gardens in Lakeland, and also
announced plans for the group to
attend a performance of


"Oklahoma" at Theatre Winter
Haven on March 4.
The prayer and pledge were
led by Mrs. King.
Celebrating birthdays this
month are Nell Hollingsworth
and Anne Glasco.
The next board meeting will be
held Feb. 26 at the home of Nell
Hollingsworth. The next dinner
meeting is planned for March 5,
at the Bartow Civic Center.

Snowbird
Lunch
Set Feb. 27
The annual Hancock County,
Ind., snowbird lunch will be held
Tuesday, Feb. 27, beginning at 11
a.m., at Homer's in the large din-
ing room.
Reservations are not required.


Carolyn Wilson of CeeJay
Nursery in Lakeland presented a
program on propagating plants to
the Fort Meade Garden Club at
its Jan. 24 meeting, held at
Covenant House.
Eighteen members attended
the meeting.
Ms. Wilson began by showing
how she prepares most Florida
specimens for rooting, saying she
almost never uses a rooting hor-
mone in the process.
She starts with clippings she
collects from the various shrubs
and flowering plants in her yard.
The leaf mass must be reduced by
eliminating all but a few leaves
from the top of the stem, and in
some cases clipping large leaves
so that only a portion of the leaf
remains.
She also removes any flowers
that may be on the stem. By doing
this, it will be assured that all the
energy in the remaining plant
will go into root growth, she said.
Mrs. Wilson uses a mixture of
50 percent peat and 50 percent
pearlite in her rooting trays.
The easiest plants and shrubs
to root by this method include
copper plant, milkweed, salvia,
fire spike, flame vine, mandarin
hat plant, coleus, golden dew
drops, dwarf orchid tree, jasmine,
mallo hibiscus, Rangoon creeper,
ficus, panama rose, and fire


Audubon

Buck and Linda Cooper will
give a presentation about their
recent trip to Antarctica for the
Lake Region Audubon Society's
free evening program Tuesday,
Feb. 13.
The program begins at 7 p.m.

bush.
Mrs. Wilson set up a tray of 40
of these specimens that will be
placed in Alice Spieth's green-
house and distributed to Garden
Club members when they visit
the greenhouse in March. By
then, she said, the rooted clip-
pings will be ready for planting.
She also demonstrated air and
ground layering as a means of
propagation.
The method she uses for air
layering is: Cut two circles
through the cambium layer of a
branch about one inch apart (the
larger the branch, the further
apart the circles). Peel off the
bark between the two circles, dust
with rooting hormone powder,
and wrap with wet sphagnum
moss. Hold this in place tightly
with plastic wrap and secure at
the top and bottom with tie ties.
This method may be used on
almost any Florida plant, Mrs.
Wilson said. June and July are
perhaps the best months to prop-
agate using this method as the
sugar in the plant is highest at
this time.
She recommended the
American Horticultural Society
book, "Plant Propagation," by
Alan Toogood, as an excellent
resource guide.
A short business meeting fol-
lowed, led by President Bettye


Barnett. Lenora Culpepper gave
the devotional, Leta Wright led
the club in the Pledge of
Allegiance, and Nancy Kitchings
read the minutes from the previ-
ous meetings.
Marian Clyatt was thanked for
getting door prizes for the
December luncheon. Leta Wright
reported on a recent trip she, Inez
Varn, and Jean Barnett took to
Southeastern University in
Lakeland for the dedication of
Kelly Garden.
Other business included a
count of trees that members had
planted in commemoration of
Arbor Day. More than 15 new
trees have been planted in the
community.
Bettye Barnett announced an
upcoming workshop sponsored by
Friends of the Parks Foundation.
"Plant Natives First", will be held
at Historic Bok Sanctuary on Feb.
17 from 9 a.m. to noon. Keynote
speaker will be David Price,
director of horticulture at the gar-
dens.
Members were reminded to
bring flowers and foliage from
their yards along with a contain-
er to the Feb. 28 meeting. Mrs.
Barnett will present a program
entitled "Flower and Foliage
Arrangements."

is joining the Florida Trail
Association to encourage
Floridians to enjoy a healthy
lifestyle by taking advantage of
Florida's extensive trail system.
"February is the perfect time of
year to encourage outdoor recre-
ation on one of Florida's award-
winning trails," said DEP's Office
of Greenways & Trails Director
Jena B. Brooks. "Florida's green-
ways and trails promote environ-
mental stewardship and a
healthy lifestyle for our citizens
as well as economic opportunities
for local communities."
A match for any fitness plan,
Florida boasts more than 4,000
miles of trails for walking, biking,
hiking or riding. Initiated by the
Florida Trail Association, Florida
Hiking Trails Month emphasizes


fun and fitness along scenic and
diverse trails, including paved
rail-trails, urban trails through
cityscapes and wilderness trails
through Florida's award-winning
state parks.
The largest in the state, the
Florida National Scenic Trail is a
path that will ultimately extend
1,400 miles from the Gulf Islands
National Seashore in the
Panhandle to the Florida Keys.
As one of eight congressionally-
designated scenic trails in the
United States, this path includes
loop and linear trails on public
lands throughout Florida.
The sections were built and
maintained by volunteers from
the Florida Trail Association, in
cooperation with the U.S. Forest
Service, and include state green-
ways and trails such as the Cross
Florida Greenway and the Lake
Okeechobee Scenic Trail.
The Office of Greenways &


Trails (OGT) manages eight state
trails, including the Marjorie
Harris Carr Cross Florida
Greenway, Florida's longest green
corridor stretching 110 miles from
the St. Johns River near Palatka
to the Gulf of Mexico.
DEP, through OGT, also main-
tains five rail-trails, which are
railroad tracks restored and con-
verted to recreational trails for
hiking, biking and skating.
Through Florida Forever, the
state's land acquisition program,
$4.5 million dollars is spent
annually to purchase land for
future trail areas and build and
maintain Florida's greenways
and trails.

4 The Polk County Democrat February 12, 2007


Editorial


The Hillsborough County. commission
appears to have stumbled onto a remark-
able local initiative for ad valorem tax
relief:
Spend less money.
If their resolve holds, their tax relief plan
will require no amendment to the Florida
Constitution, no action by the Florida
Legislature, no taxpayer revolt.
Spend less money.
As explained by The Tampa Tribune, the
commission's plan would limit budget
increases for operating purposes to an
amount equal to the increase in the coun-
ty's population plus the rate of inflation.
The property tax millage would then be
reduced to the level required to produce
that much revenue. ,
If its resolve holds up and that is a big
"if" the Hillsborough County commis-
sion will reduce taxes through self disci-
pline.
It is a model that should be considered
by all local governments that genuinely
want to provide tax relief.
Instead of deciding how much it wants
to spend, and then setting taxes according-
ly, the Hillsborough plan will begin with a
government deciding how much money it
wants to extract from the taxpayers, then
adjusting expenses to meet that limit.
It is hardly a draconian approach.
It stands to reason that as government's
number of customers increases, the
expenses to serve them will rise propor-
tionately. And government, like everyone
else, must deal with the effects of inflation.
Put the two together increase in pop-
ulation and increase in inflation and
you have a simple formula for providing
the same level of service next year as this.
Only if the county's level of service is
deemed inadequate should it be necessary
to increase revenues further.
City and county .governments, which
rely heavily on ad valorem property taxes
for revenues, have experienced a windfall
from the housing boom of the past couple
of years, as property values have risen at


The most common question I
get as the new general manager is
-"How's it going?"
I am not sure anyone really
cares, but I always try to give an
honest answer like "hectic" or
"busy" or maybe just a simple
"great." Well, things are about to
change. We have some great
changes coming up and I want to
share some of them with you.
Most of the changes at this
point have to do with our classi-
fied advertising. You might ask,
why classified. Well, here is the
logic.
There is no question that The
Polk County Democrat, The Fort
Meade Leader, and The Lake
Wales News have been the infor-
mation leaders for local news in
these parts for some time. The
area where we have probably
dragged behind is being the mar-
ketplace for these areas. We plan
to change that.


several times the rate of inflation.
It has been a.blow to property owners,
whose household incomes have not risen
at the same rate as their housing values.
The blow has been doubly hard to people
who sell one home protected by
Florida's three percent Save Our Homes
cap on increases in valuation to pur-
chase a new home.
Hillsborough's approach follows the
concept of Florida's Truth in Millage law,
better known as TRIM, which is designed
to keep property millage under control by
encouraging millage decreases as property
values increase.
Local governments can go beyond the
TRIM limits, after giving proper notice to
the taxpayers, and we support that con-
cept. Local citizens, through, their elected
representatives, should have the option to
make extraordinary increases to meet
extraordinary needs.
But once government's revenues reach
the level needed to provide a reasonable
level of service, it stands to reason that
growth in revenues should mirror the
growth in population and inflation, and
not be based on a spike in property values.
We commend Hillsborough's initiative
to any local government that subscribes to
the notion that tax relief should begin at
home, not in Tallahassee.

When you open our newspa-

are in the marketplace. The first
place to start is our classified
pages.
Beginning this week, a private
party can place an ad for free in
our classified for two weeks for
items priced less than $500. If
after two weeks you have not
sold it, or you need to continue to
run it, it will only cost you $5 for
the next two weeks. When you
are ready to sell that old washer

think of us as the place to be.
If you are a private party sell-

Bodice-Rippers Made To Order


Tax Relief Can Start


With Local Initiative


Okay, Valentine's Day isn't
until Wednesday, so you don't
actually think I have done much
shopping, right?
Candy, that's an easy one. And
the price tags are easy to remove.
That's important to a New Age
Sensitive Guy like me.
Cards?
Not too tough.
They have them arranged
under headings like "Wife,"
"Daughter," "Son," "Both of
Them," and "Grandson." I have
one or more in all those cate-
gories.
The girls, they're not so tough.
Candy and maybe a house plant.
I'm sorry; I don't have a lot of
imagination at my age.
Which is 66, if anybody cares.
The grandsons get a card.
There's only so much space in
their rooms.
But what about my friend
Mary? After 43 years, there are
only so many rose bushes and
necklaces on the market.
A few days ago, I,read about
this outfit that will write a paper-
back novel about your relation-
ship. It's a fill-in-the-blanks book.
There are several versions,
from PG to how-many-Xs-are
there?
Yep, you send in your name to
Books By You, you answer 20 to
30 questions, and before you
know it, you are the star of your
own pulp novel. Your picture can

Bodice.
When is the last time you used
the word?
I've never seen a bodice,
except on the cover of cheap
books, where they are almost
always being ripped.
I could order a bodice-ripping
dime novel for $34.95 (plus
postage and shipping), but some-
how, that's just not quite my
style.
So let me see if I can write a
fill-in-the-blanks dime novel for
Mary and me.

I awoke at 10 o'clock on a
Saturday morning. It had been a
memorable Friday night, answer-
ing e-mails from Sun Coast until
almost midnight.
The kids' programs on
Channel 8 brought me to con-
'sciousness. I am not really into
talking sharks and dragons with
sob stories.
"Mary, time to wake up?" I ask
with an affectionate poke in her
ribs.
"What time is it?"
"Ten o'clock."
"Try me again at noon."
I stagger out to the kitchen and
try to remember how many
scoops it takes to make a cup of
coffee. One? Two? Three?

Polk in Top 15 Nationally for 2006

National Board Teacher Certification


Sixty Polk County teachers or
guidance counselors have earned
prestigious certification from the
Arlington-Va.-based National
Board for Professional Teaching
Standards.
NBPTS candidates go through
a rigorous, performance-based
assessment that takes from one
to three years to complete and
includes testing and videotaping
of their work.
Through the process, they
document deep knowledge of
their profession and demonstrate
an ability to manage and meas-
ure student learning.
Polk has a total of 272 NBPTS
certified teachers. The 60 certi-
fied in 2006 surpasses the school
district's high of 58 certified in
2005. Polk was ranked 15th in
the nation for number of teach-
ers achieving National Board
Certification in 2006.
The school district began
NBPTS certification programs in
1999 when 14 teachers became
certified.
NBPTS certification, which is
voluntary and not connected to
required state certification,
earns each teacher or guidance
counselor a $4,270.20 bonus
from the state of Florida for ten
years.
SNBPTS-certified teachers and
guidance counselors are also eli-
gible for additional bonuses
through a mentoring program
bringing the total bonus package
to more than $8,000 per year for
10 years.
Further information on
NBPTS certification is available

decade, based on research con-
ducted by the PMCA and by
landlords in the field.
Among innovations, are deep-
er compartments to better pro-
tect nestlings from rain and from
predators, and specially-shaped
entrance holes designed to admit
martins while restricting
European starlings, an invasive,
non-protected species.
The number one tip from the
PMCA for attracting martins:
Purple martins are swallows of
the open sky and prefer housing
with at least several open fly-
ways. Place housing in the most
open space available, but where
the colony can be enjoyed and
monitored.
Much more information about
purple martins can be obtained
from the Purple Martin
Conservation Association -
which is focused on aiding mar-
tins and landlords including a
products catalog and informa-
tion booklet, with advice on
attracting and managing a
colony, and data sheets to partic-
ipate in Project Martin Watch, a
national effort in which partici-
pants monitor nests and mail
information to the PMCA at sea-
son's end.
To obtain the booklet, contact

Downtown Bartow Boasts New

Restaurant Garden Side Cafe


Downtown Bartow now offers
another lunch option Garden
Side Cafe.
Owned by Diana Dixon and
her daughter, Lisa Torquemada,
the restaurant offers homemade
soups, sandwiches, salads, and
desserts.
The new restaurant opened
on Jan. 25, after Mrs. Dixon
closed her restaurant in Mul-
berry, and moved the business to
385 East Main Street.
"We always wanted to be in
Bartow," she said. "I really like
Bartow, and we looked very for-
ward to being here."
A former supervisor in a fresh


fruit and beverage facility and
employee for the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture, Mrs. Dixon
said she always loved cooking,
especially during holidays and
special occasions.
"It was the day-to-day plan-
niig I don't like," she said. "I
love to cook, but hate to have to
plan what's for dinner."
The restaurant, she said
solves that problem by offering a
set menu. Now, Mrs. Dixon is
spending less time in the kitchen
and more in the dining room.
"I am getting to know my cus-
tomers," she said. "I want to
meet them and see what we can


do to serve them."
The *restaurant has been
pretty busy during lunch al-
ready, Mrs. Dixon said, and they
plan to open now on Friday Fest
nights.
She also offers a meeting
room and catering service on
weekends and evenings.
"There just aren't many
places for small groups to hold
meetings, so we wanted to offer
that," she said.
Garden Side Cafe is open
from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday
through Friday. For information.

Polk Recognized For Purchasing Program


Polk County was recently fea-
tured in "American City and
County Magazine" for its pur-
chasing card program.
Through the use of technol-
ogy, this program has enabled
the Polk County's Purchasing
Division to improve efficiencies
and save money.
"A few years ago, Polk County
introduced the use of purchasing
cards (similar to a regular credit
card) to improve the efficiency of
its accounts payable system," the
article said. "Today, all of its de-
partments/divisions use the
cards for purchases under
$2,500, a change that has in-
creased accountability among
employees and saved money for


the county.
"Polk's Purchasing Director
Buddy Storey manages the pro-
gram and controls each card's
usage parameters including
spending limits, merchant accep-
tance and time of use and can
change them within 10 minutes
as needed so employees in spe-
cial circumstances can make nec-
essary purchases.
"The director also can view all
transactions through a real-time
electronic statement system that
tracks each employee's expendi-
tures as they are made.
"Employees submit all re-
ceipts to the director for verifica-
tion and tracking at the end of
the month when purchasing card


balances are paid in full.
"Polk County earns cash re-
bates based on its total volume
of business for the year. The
card program saves time and
money on each transaction, and
the purchase card transaction
volume has grown rapidly from
$800,000 in 2001 to an estimated
$15 million in 2006.
"Storey estimates that if the
county still were using the old
system, he would have to hire at
least four more employees to
handle the county's current
transaction volume of about
48,000 transactions per year."

How To Survive A Broken Heart


'Tis the season for hearts,
flowers and warm, fuzzy senti-
ments about love. But despite all
the ads and articles about mak-
ing Valentine's Day special, it's
also a time of the year when
many relationships end.
The increased focus on ro-
mance can lead some to look
closely at a current romantic re-
lationship and decide it's not the
right one. When that happens,
and someone you thought would
love you forever is suddenly
walking out the door, it can be a
shattering experience.
The sudden ending of a ro-
mantic relationship can leave
you feeling not just alone, but
abandoned and unlovable. You
might feel as if..your life can
never be the same and that the
pain you're feeling will never go
away.
While there is no instant cure
for a broken heart, there are
steps you can take to make the
hurt less painful.


Start by accepting that you've
suffered a loss, not dissimilar to
the death of someone close to
you. Don't feel guilty for natu-
rally feeling sad or angry.
Next, acknowledge that one
day things wiill get better. Time
really does heal a broken heart,
and the further you get from the
actual breakup, the easier it will
be to gain some perspective. A
flu may have you feeling terrible,
but you know it doesn't last for-
ever. Neither does a broken
heart.
Start the healing process by
taking care of yourself. Get
plenty of rest, exercise and eat
well and sensibly. It's not a time
for junk food or for crash dieting.
Don't just wallow in sadness.
Stick to your regular schedule
and maintain a social life with
friends. Accept their support, but
don't get stuck in stories of the
breakup or how badly you're feel-
ing.
Get busy and enjoy yourself.


Start a new hobby or restart an
old one. Take a class. Go on a
trip.
Don't get caught in the re-
bound trap. Rather than rushing
to develop a new romantic inter-
est, take the time to get to know
yourself again.
Your goal in surviving a
breakup is to minimize your pain
and to put your life back on a
solid footing. While giving your
heart time to heal, find friends,
activities and interests that ar-
en't focused on the pain. Soon
you'll find you're feeling better
and ready to look for a new rela-
tionship that's right for you.

Find More Time For Your Health


Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN
American Institute for
Cancer Research -

Nielsen Media Research re-
port from Fall 2006 shows that
the average American spends
four hours and 35 minutes
watching television per day.
Per week, television viewing
adds up to more than 30 hours
well beyond a part-time job.
Other reports show that national
and local commercials now total
an average of eight minutes of
every half-hour show.
So the average viewer is
watching 40 minutes of commer-
cials a day or more than four-
and-a-half hours weekly.
Television is not necessarily
wasted time as people use it to
relax and learn. However, lack of
time is one of the most com-
monly reported reasons that peo-
ple don't exercise or plan and
prepare healthier meals.
Perhaps it is worth consider-
ing the benefits that the time
you spend watching television
could bring. If lack of time keeps
you from adopting some health-
ful habits but you aren't ready to
reduce your television-w thing
time, you might reconsider the
way you spend commercials.
There are several different ap-
proaches you could take to make
use of this gold mine of time.
First, you could use commer-
cial times to accomplish those

health-supporting tasks you
never seem to get done. Many
people find that one of the se-
crets to healthier eating is to
plan meals ahead.
This allows you to grocery
shop more efficiently and avoids
the stress that comes when you
haven't given dinner a thought
until a few minutes before you
hope to eat.
Within an hour of television
programming, you could plan
close to a week's worth of meals
and perhaps even write the gro-
cery list for a weekly shopping
trip.
People often say that they
would like to save money and eat
better by bringing their lunch to
work, but that they have no time
to make it.
Others say they find no time
to prepare the fruit they'd like to
have with their breakfast. Com-
mercials offer plenty of time to
do these tasks. You could also
assemble foods for the next day's
breakfast.
.What about fitness goals that
are never met? In a single coin-
mercial break ypu could do sev-
eral sets of crunches to tone
those ab muscles, other
strength-training exercises or


stretches to improve your flexi-
bility.
Stashing weights or exercise
bands near the television allows
you to readily start an activity
when the commercials start.
A second approach is to use
commercials to take care of
small general tasks that eat up
the time you'd like to spend go-
ing for a walk or attending a fit-
ness class.
By using commercials to pay
bills, do laundry and sort
through mail and e-mails, the
average American can accumu-
late more than four hours of
time saved in the course of a
week, enough to make a substan-
tial boost in exercise time.
Technology offers a third op-
tion. If you have a recording
technology you can record televi-
sion shows and fast-forward
through the commercials. You
can finish four-and-a-half hours
of television-shows in less than
four hours. The trick, however, is
to use the extra time to work for
you, instead of to watch yet an-
other show.

Stay Safe This Winter


As Central Florida experi-
ences cold weather this week es-
pecially at night, the American
Red Cross encourages local fami-
lies to take certain precautions
to stay safe.
Exposure to cold can cause in-
jury or serious illness, depending
on factors such as physical activ-
ity, clothing, wind, humidity,
working and living conditions,
and a person's age and state of
health. Follow these tips to stay
safe in cold weather:
Dress appropriately before
going outdoors. The air tempera-
ture does not have to be below
freezing for someone to experi-
ence cold emergencies such as
hypothermia and frostbite.
Wind speed can create dan-
gerously cold conditions even
when the temperature is not
that low.
Dress in layers so you can
adjust to changing conditions.
Avoid overdressing or overexer-
tion that can lead to heat illness.
Most of your body heat is
lost through your head so wear a
hat, preferably one that covers
your ears.
Mittens provide more
warmth to your hands than
gloves.
Wear waterproof, insulated
boots to help avoid hypothermia
or frostbite by keeping your feet
warm and dry and to maintain
your footing in ice and snow.
Get out of wet clothes imme-
diately and warm the core body
temperature with a blanket or
warm fluids like hot cider or
soup.
Avoid drinking caffeine or al-
cohol if it seems that you or
someone you are trying to help
has hypothermia or frostbite.
Recognize the symptoms of
hypothermia that can be a seri-
ous medical condition: conftision,
dizziness, exhaustion and severe
shivering.
Seek medical attention imme-
diately if you have these symp-
toms.
Recognize frostbite warning
signs: gray, white or yellow skin
discoloration, numbness, waxy-
feeling skin. Seek medical atten-
tion immediately if you have

indoors during very cold days
and nights. Also protect plants
that might be affected by the low
temperatures.
Use caution when using
space heaters and other heating
sources, and plan ahead for the
possibility of a home fire.
According to the National Fire
Protection Association, four out
of seven home fires occur during
December, January and Febru-
ary, and about half of these fires
are caused by using candles and
overloading electrical circuits. As
families turn to alternative heat-
ing sources, there is an increased
risk of accidental fires in the
home.
Keep all potential fuel
sources (newspapers, matches,
bedding, clothing, carpets and
rugs) at least three feet away
from heat sources, such as space
heaters, fireplaces and stoves.
Provide constant adult su-
pervision in rooms with lit can-
dles or fires.
Keep fire in the fireplace by
using glass or metal fire screens.
Never leave a fire in the
fireplace unattended. Extinguish
the fire before going to bed or
leaving the house.
Never use a cooking range
or oven to heat your home.
Turn off portable space
heaters every time you leave the
room or go to sleep.
Have wood and coal stoves,
fireplaces, and chimneys in--
spected annually by a profes-
sional, and cleaned if necessary.
If you must use space heat-
ers, place them on a level, hard
and nonflammable surface (such
as ceramic tile floor), not on rugs
or carpets or near bedding or
drapes. Keep children and pets
away from space heaters.

Church, 637 Sixth Street in Win-
ter Haven.

tween a group that will meet
from 10:30 a.m. to noon and an-
other that will meet from 5:30 to
7 p.m.
Both sessions are open to any-
one who has lost a loved one, and
participants need not have used
Good Shepherd Hospice pro-
grams in the past.
Space is limited and reserva-
tions are requested. Contact

MUSEUM VOLUNTEERS Martha Hancock hard work preparing the museum for viewings. -
and Peggy Langston take a break from all of their (Photo provided)


By LETA WRIGHT

Last week's museum news
was written on the discovery of
the daughter, Ruth Maddox
Hughes, of one of our pioneers,
J.M. Maddox, who was still liv-
ing at the age of 92.
Her father had a hardware
store in Fort Meade in the loca-
tion of Mitchell Insurance in the
early 1900s. Ruth and her two
brothers, Francis J. and Alexan-
der B., graduated from Fort
Meade High School.
Since this finding in Novem-
ber, she has corresponded with
me regularly and I was deter-
mined to meet her, so I went to
Vero Beach the second week in
January.
We made plans for her to
come to Fort Meade as soon as
she could navigate a little better
after having a hip operation. She
was anxious to see the museum
and Fort Meade.
Last week I sent her pictures
that I made while visiting her.
One picture was the museum
memorial plaque with the plates
engraved with the names of her
two brothers that she ordered for
the plaque.
I mailed her the Fort Meade
Leader last Friday so she could
see her picture and read the Mu-
seum news which she will never
see as she passed away suddenly
on Friday.
This was crushing news to
me.
There was a graveside service
on'Monday in Evergreen Ceme-
tery in Fort Meade as she was
placed in the J.M. Maddox fam-

ily plot. After the service, the
family asked to tour the mu-
seum, which we did.

Last week, we finally got all
the artifacts that had been
stored in the train since the hur-
ricane disaster to a proper stor-
age place.
And, thanks to four members
of the men's coffee club that
meets every morning for moving
the display tables from the train
to the shed tool room.
The men were Wayne Gunter,
Bobby Mitchell, Don Marchman,
and Allen Hancock.
Every so often the coffee club
members come to our rescue to
move heavy articles and we
really do appreciate their will-

Supplement to The Polk County Democrat And The Fort Meade Leader


Our Constitution's Bill of Rights


ccond and third Smendmento


Second Amendment
"A well regulated militia,
being necessary to the
security of a free state, the
right of the people to keep
and bear arms, shall not be
infringed."
Words to know
This is what these words mean to
most people:
well regulated militia: ian army
of well-trained private citizens called
into service by a state government in
times of emergencies.
bear arms: carry weapons
infringed: violated


Minutemen, or
Citizen soldiers,
'=3" j. ",4 fight in one of
"' the first battles
of the
Revolutionary
War in
/ Lexington,
Mass., in 1775.
This battle was
fought against


held by the
Colonists at
Concord, Mass.
SThe Minutemen
proved they had
o the courage and
weapons to
fight.

Word meanings
Few issues about the Bill of Rights
cause as much debate as the Second
Amendment.
The debate often centers on what
the founding fathers meant when they
wrote "militia" and "people."
Does it mean that the U.S.
government cannot take away the
rights of state militia members to
have weapons?
Or could the word "people" mean
that the U.S. government cannot take
,away the rights of individual people to
own guns, whether .or not they are in
a militia?


9







Third Amendment
"No soldier shall, in time of
peace be quartered in any
house, without the consent
of the owner, nor in the time
of war, but in a manner to be
prescribed by law."
Words to know
quartered: given room and board
(meals)
prescribed by law: ordered by law
At one time, the British had passed
laws that required the Colonial
legislature (law-making group) to pay
for the room and board for British
soldiers stationed in America. Some
Colonists did not think this was fair.
Then, a later law demanded that the
British soldiers be put up in private
homes. The Third Amendnent was
passed so this would not happen
again.

The Bill of Rights had a long history of events that

Thomas Jefferson wrote most of the Declaration of
Independence adopted by the
Continental Congress. It said that all
Ei people are born with the right to "life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."


1786: Virginia Statute for
Religious Freedom
The state legislature of Virginia
passed this law to expand religious
-freedom in the state. It ended state-
sponsored churches in Virginia. The
statute was written by Thomas
Jefferson.
LET'S

1787: Northwest Ordinance
Under the Articles of
Confederation, Congress
passed this law for the western
territories. It promised freedom
of religion, trial by jury and the
writ of habeas corpus. It also
forbade slavery in the region.

1789: U.S. Constitution
The Constitution as adopted
included important rights. It
guaranteed trial by jury and the
writ of habeas corpus. The writ
demands that a court bring a
Prisoner before the court to explain
why he or she is being held.

The M ini a Standards Spotlight:
1 Second and Third Amendments
Dsibute by Urvrsa Pas Syncate
Mini Page activities meet many state and national educational standards. Each
week we identify standards that relate to The Mini Page's content and offer
activities that will help your students reach them.
This week's standards:
-Students understand family life in various places long ago. (History)
Students describe the geographic context that has influenced people and events in the past.
(Geography)
Activities:
1. What was life like in Colonial times for kids? Draw a picture of a chore that kids backthen
might have done.
2. Find three items in the newspaper that were used in Colonial times and are still used today.
Now find three modern items that would have made life easier for people living in the
Colonies. Paste your items on a piece of paper. Write a sentence next to each item telling why
you chose it.
3. How do you think the Colonists faced danger? Write a short paragraph describing two
different ways you think the Colonists protected themselves.
4. Select your favorite comic strip in the newspaper. Now think about how the characters might
have acted during the Colonial period. Draw a new strip with the characters living in the
late 1700s.
5. Use resource books ana the Internet to learn about the 27 amendments to the U.S. o
Constitution. If you could propose an amendment to the Constitution, what would it be?
Write a paragraph describing your amendment and explaining why you think it would make
the Constitution better.

tccond and third amendments


Background on gun
ownership
The right to own and carry guns
had been an English tradition for
hundreds of years.
At the time of the American
Revolution, most men had guns.
However, some form of gun
control is also a tradition.
There were usually some laws
about who was permitted to own
them.
During the Revolutionary War,
some Colonies had laws that
women, free blacks and members of
certain religions could not own
guns.

About militias
In Colonial times, many able-
bodied men between the ages of 15
to 60 served in their state's
"militias," or military units. Some
were soldiers, but many were
farmers. Their duty was to defend
their community.
During the Revolutionary War,
state militias joined in the fight for
freedom.
The fighters for our freedom
knew that their right to own
weapons, and assemble, train and
equip an army, enabled them to
.win the war.
After the war, the Second
Amendment was adopted to.
prevent the U.S. government from
taking away this right:

This is the third in a monthly series
about the Bill of Rights. The Mini ( \
Page thanks the staff of the
National Archives and Lee Ann
Potter, director of education and volunteer
programs, for their help with this issue.


The Minuteman statue is the symbol of
the "citizen soldier" or National Guard.
The statue is placed near the North
Bridge in Concord, Mass. He is standing
in front of his plow with his musket, or
gun, in his hand. This copy is at the
National Guard Memorial Building in
Washington, D.C.
The American Colonists would not
have won the Revolutionary War if
they had not had the fight to carry
guns.
The Mini Page also thanks Claire
McCaffery Griffin, vice president of
education programs, the ll of Rights
Institute, for help with this issue.

The gun control
debate
In this country, there is a debate
about how we should control guns and
who should be permitted to own them.
Some people want the U.S.
government to control gun ownership.
Other people want little or no
government control.
Both sides often point to the
Second Amendment because they
think it supports their argument.
How people feel about guns is
usually based on their own experience.
Some people have had negative
experiences with guns. They might
want strong gun control laws.
Other people have had positive
experiences with guns. They might
want little or no control.
The U.S. government has set up
a few rules, including those that
ban the sale of certain types of
weapons.
The U.S. government has not
stopped state and local
governments from setting up their
own gun ownership laws.
Each state and local area has its
own gun control laws.

Third Amendment
Remembering that the Bill of
Rights was proposed more than 200
years ago, in 1789, is important to
help us understand the Third
Amendment.
The American Revolution had
ended a few years earlier. The way
the Colonists had been treated by
the British was fresh in their
minds. They did not want to be
forced to house soldiers against
their will.
