3artow Marketing Plan


To Target Newcomers,


Visitors, Public Employees


A marketing plan for Bartow,
its businesses, and its activities
that will reach out to present res-
idents, newcomers, county and
state workers, and residents of
other communities was presented
to Bartow's Community
Redevelopment Agency and the
city commission Tuesday night.
Jeff Clark, executive director
of the Bartow Chamber of
Commerce, presented the propos-
al. It was created by the Bartow
Marketing Partnership, a coali-
tion of the Chamber and the CRA.
Though no vote was taken,
response at a joint meeting of the
CRA and the commission was
positive. The plan, if adopted, will
be funded by the CRA.
The theme of the marketing
proposal is "Our History comes to
life!" and promotional materials
would feature the emblem devel-
oped by the CRA that is being
used on signs throughout the
downtown area. That logo has the
image of the historic court house
surrounded by the words
"Bartow, City of Oaks and
Azaleas, Est. 1851."
Promotion would be in news-
papers, broadcast outlets, an
Internet website, and billboards.
Printed materials also would be
distributed at the Chamber, the
Historical Museum and
Genealogical Library, city hall,
Bartow Public Library, and local
businesses and tourist lodging
establishments.
Information would be included
on local services and amenities.
Specialty items promoting
Bartow would include picture


postcards, T-shirts, coffee cups
and decals.
Materials also would be
developed to appeal to business-
es considering locating in
Bartow.
A special 'focus would be the
thousands of county and state
employees who work in Bartow
but live in surrounding commu-
nities. They would be encour-
aged to shop in Bartow, in part
through the creation of a dis-
count plan.
Among other features of the
plan:
Exploration of the feasibili-
ty of a downtown transportation
system for county workers.
Re-establishment of down-
town walking paths.
Promotion of new business
development.
Establishment of a building
and land inventory for potential
new businesses.
Processing of leads on poten-
tial new businesses.
Promotion of Bartow
Municipal Airport, including the
new terminal and restaurant.
SDevelopment of a co-op
advertising program to help small
businesses advertise.,
Promotion of tour packages.
Development of audio self-
guided tours.
Creation of a shopping and
dining guide.
Creation of a discount and
coupon package for new resi-
dents.
Development of Bartow as a
destination for bicyclists, includ-
ing those who use Fort Fraser


Trail.
"We realize that we have limit-
ed resources," Clark told the com-
bined meeting. "We didn't want to
let it get away from us.
"This is not a Chamber initia-
tive. It will involve everyone."
Linda Allen, the city's grants
coordinator, will provide major
help in creating a new website, he
said, adding, "The hub centers
around the website."
Throughout the nation,
"urbanization is being reversed.
People want to move back to
small towns," Clark said.
The key to the marketing plan
is to focus on Bartow's unique his-
torical assets, he said.
On June 30, Bartow will cele-
brate the 125th anniversary of its
incorporation as a city, he said.
(The 1851 date on the logo is the
date of the arrival of the first per-
manent settlers.)

Brief, Violent Storm


Rakes Through Bartow


A brief but furious thunder-
storm raked through Bartow on
Tuesday afternoon, bringing
down numerous tree limbs and
causing isolated flooding, but
apparently causing little major
damage.
A little before 3:30, the skies
darkened' ominously as eastern
Hillsbobrough County and west-
ern Polk County were placed
under a severe thunderstorm
warning.
High wind- c:'ming from the
southwest snapped oak limbs


throughout the city, including a. miles per hour, the center of the
major one on the lawn of city hall. storm swept through Mulberry
Some, predictably, brought dpwn but passed west of Bartow. The
power lines or phone lines as they storm was gooe in about 15 min-


fell.
One crashed across a parked
motorcycle.
Branches and twigs littered
the streets in much of the city,
along with empty garbage cans
along Tuesday's collection route.
The heavy wind caused rain to
fall more horizontally than verti-'
cally.

CMS Nurse Accused of

Stealing Inmates' Drugs


Polk County Sheriff's detec-
tives arrested a Correctional
Medical Services (CMS) nurse
Wednesday afternoon after an
investigation revealed she was
allegedly stealing .inmates' pre-
scription medications.
Lynda Maier, 42, of 2019
Woodbriar Loop in Lakeland, was
taken into custody without inci-
dent after being interviewed by
detectives and admitting that she
took home prescription medica-
tion intended for inmates.
Detectives had received infor-
mation that she had the drugs in
her home, and when they inter-
viewed her and searched her
home, they found several differ-
ent types of prescription drugs,
mostly antibiotics such as amoxi-
cillin and fluconazole.
Maier was booked into the
Polk County Jail Wednesday. She
is charged with eight counts of
possession of prescription med-
ication without a prescription,
and eight counts of petit theft,
and was being held on $8,000
bond as of this morning.

New City Policy Limits


Input on Ordinances


For the next few months, at
least, Bartowans will not be
allowed to address the city com-
mission on proposed ordinances
until a few minutes before a final
vote is taken.
Although the policy adopted by
the commission applies to all
ordinances, the primary effect
will be on zoning and develop-
ment issues.
Under the new policy, only the
applicant's plans will be consid-
ered by the commission when the
ordinance is considered on first
reading, and commissioners will
be virtually required to vote for
passage. Opponents will not be
allowed to speak until a public
hearing, which normally takes
place at the next meeting, imme-
diately before the final vote.
The policy was presented by
City Atty. George Dunlap at the
commission's work session, and
adopted by unanimous vote at the
commission's business meeting
an hour later.
As a policy not an ordinance
it can be waived by the com-
mission at any meeting, except in
* "quasi-judicial" proceedings, pri-
marily relating to zoning and

part-time basis.
Cities are required to have a
certified building official.
"Mr. True has been employed
by the city for over 17 years,"
DeLegge wrote in a memo to the
city commission and department
heads on Tuesday.
"He has done an excellent job
as the city's building official dur-
ing a time of unprecedented
growth in the city of Bartow.
"His knowledge and expertise
has been recognized throughout
Polk County and he will be
missed."


land development, Dunlap told
the commission.
The new procedure prohibits
audience comment, except from
the city staff, at first reading. The
staff report outlines the develop-
er's plans, which typically have
received staff approval by the
time they get to the commission.
The title of the ordinance will
be'read on first reading, and the
mayor will have the option of ask-
ing for a staff report, not to
exceed 10 minutes.
Commissioners will be allowed to
ask questions of staff members.
The mayor will then call for a
vote.
Dunlap's memo to the commis-
sion said:
"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 will be made.
In land use ordinances, the
applicant will be given 15' min-


utes to make an opening state-
ment, and five minutes for rebut-
tal at the close of the hearing.
Each member of the audience
will have five minutes to speak on
the issue, unless two other people
in the audience yield their time to
him before the start of the meet-
ing, in which case the speaker
will have 15 minutes.
Time spent by speakers
answering questions from the
commission will not count
against their allotted minutes.
In a copy of the policy to be dis-
tributed to the audience before
the meeting, speakers will be
urged not to repeat arguments
made by prior speakers.
The policy prohibits "clapping,
shouting, hooting and the like
from the audience."
The commission's vote will
come at the close of the hearing.
In his memo, the city attorney
urged the commission to follow
the new procedure "for at least a
few months to see how it works."
Dunlap told the commission on
Monday:
"Hopefully it will work; if not,
we'll go to Plan B."

Also known as Lou Gehrig's
disease, ALS (Amyotrophic lat-


eral sclerosis) is a neurodegen-
erative disease that usually at-
tacks both upper and lower mo-
tor neurons and causes degen-
eration throughout the brain and
spinal cord.
Lou Gehrig first brought na-
tional and international atten-
tion to the disease in 1939, when
he abruptly retired from baseball
after being diagnosed with ALS.
SMost commonly, the disease
strikes people between the ages
of 40 and 70, and as many as
30,000 Americans have the dis-
ease at any given time.
The walk is part of a national
effort in support of local patient
services and nationally directed
research. Last year, more than
1,400 walkers throughout Flor-
ida raised more than $405,000.
Money raised helps fund cutting
edge research and Florida pa-
tient programs.

LRal" k talte










4A The Polk County Democrat February 15, 2007


Editorial


Over the years, Bartow has seen a vari-
ety of community development and mar-
keting plans come and go.
Some, such as the formation of
Downtown Bartow, Inc., which became the
catalyst for establishing the Community
Redevelopment Agency, have been a
resounding success.
Others, like the Milo Smith report,. a
well-thought-out building-by-building
redesign plan for Bartow's historic Main
Street, never went much further than a city
hall filing cabinet.
Plans are relatively easy to develop, not
nearly so easy to implement.
We predict that the marketing plan
developed by the Bartow Marketing
Partnership and unveiled Tuesday night in
a presentation by Jeff Clark will accom-
plish much for the community and its
businesses.
Although ambitious, it also is realistic.
With the CRA as a funding source, there is
enough money to make it a reality.
And while Clark, executive director of
the Bartow Chamber of Commerce, is
quick to say that "This is not a Chamber
initiative. It will involve everyone," any-
one familiar with Clark's creative talents
and seemingly boundless energy knows
who will make it all come together.
Indeed, one of the strengths of the plan
is that it does not have a sophisticated
hierarchy of executive boards and task
forces and committees and subcommit-
tees.
Oversight will come from the Bartow
Marketing Partnership, a collaborative
organization of the CRA and the Chamber.
Brian Hinton, a city commissioner and
president of Bartow Consulting Group, is

INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD


chairman of the partnership, and brings
strong leadership to the program.
Another of the strengths is that it focus-
es in large part on the customers who are
most ready to be sold: present residents,
newcomers, and county and state workers.
The latter swell Bartow's population by
several thousand people a day, and repre-
sent a powerful market for Bartow's
restaurants, retailers and service
providers.
They are, in management terms, the
"low hanging fruit" who represent the
greatest return for the least amount of
effort and investment.
The marketing program also will reach
out to other Polk Countians, selling them
on the merits of a visit to the historic coun-
ty seat and its special events.
Bartow has much to offer; long-time res-
idents are aware of that.
The Bartow Marketing Partnership will
take the message to others.
It promises to be a highly successful pro-
gram.

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

Help for the Incantationally Challenged


Bartow Marketing Plant


Ambitious and Realistic


Ever have the feeling that
your skills at casting spells that
once came as second nature just
aren't there any more?
Well Bunkie, it's not your
fault.
The rules have changed.
There's more to casting spells
these days than the old tried-
and-true ."Bubble and Bubble
and Double Your Trouble," or
whatever that famous incanta-
tion of your youth was.
This is the day of the Internet,
and nothing is as simple as it
used to be in the days when we
actually talked to each other
instead of sending e-mails and
IM-ing our most intimate
thoughts.
I know stuff like this because
some time or other according
to one of the many Purveyors of
Better Living on the Internet I
agreed to receive correspon-
dence from somebody in New
Jersey. I really don't know many
New Jerseyonians, but since the
Internet is the Final Source of All
Incontrovertible Truths, I'm sure
I must have done so.
-Inexplicably, there's also an
address in Austria listed. Maybe
Up Nawth, they consider
Austria to be a suburb of New
Joisey. The cold weather does
affect those people's minds, you
know.
"It's NOT your fault that your
spells and rituals aren't turning
out like you want ... YET,"


assured my pen pal in New
Joisey, or maybe Austria. I have
been taught that writing in all
caps is like shouting in a sym-
phony, but when yoti're trying
to sell a book of 21st Century
Sure-Fire Incantations, I guess
subtlety just isn't the style.
At any rate, for an amount of
money not yet established, I can
purchase "Old Witchcraft
Secrets." Apparently, despite the
21st Century marketing tech-
niques, there's No Witch Like an
Old Witch.
"The truth is...." rhy witch-
craft consultant assured me,
punctuating the assurance with
pointless ellipses, "you've been
misled by self-proclaimed pow-
erful wizards and., witches....
and the truth is that 99 percent of
these 'professionals' are DEAD
WRONG!" Wow; two truths,
two sets of ellipses, two all-cap
words, and an exclamation
point, all in one sentence. This is
powerful stuff.
"They don't want you to
know the right way to cast spells
because if you did, you'd never
need them again and they would
lose their power!
"You cannot invent 'new'
spells like you cannot invent a
new tree. Everything is old. But
not everything is known in the
right way."
I am promised that merely for
visiting their website, I can get
three spells. Implicitly, they are

Dreaming of Being a Cowboy


"I grew up dreaming of being a cow-
boy,
and loving the cowboy ways;
pursuing the. life of my high-riding
heroes,
I burned up my childhood days."
Willie Nelson

I belong to the last of a breed: the
native Floridian. I am a fourth gen-
eration Floridian on both sides of the
- family: I was born in Arcadia, raised
in Zolfo Springs, around plenty of
cowboys, and I always wanted to be
one.
I went away for a while and
came back home to a town I hardly
recognized.
That great natural landmark, the .
swimming pool, of which I've writ-
ten extensively, has been closed
down and covered up.
The Peace -River Swamp is less
swampy than a city street, and chil-
dren play there in less danger than
an uptown playground.
The black panthers that used to
prowl the woods are gone, moved
on to greener pastures; their chilling
cries, like blood-curdling screams of
terrified women, vanished like
smoke on the wind. It is rare to hear
the call of a whippoorwill.
Fate must have wanted me back
in my grandmother's house because,
against all odds, she wriggled her
fickle finger and the universe con-
spired to bring me back into it, an
event I never dreamed would hap-
pen.
When I was a boy growing up


here, dreaming of being a cowboy,
and wearing white hats, I slept in the
room we called the sleeping porch.
Windows wound all the way
around the sleeping porch, and in
spring and early summer, when it
was cool, I'd open the windows to
let in the wind and the scent of right
jasmine, and better to hear the calls
of the whippoorwills, the hooting of
owls, and the myriad other night
sounds that have gone the way of
the panthers and the cowboys.
Although I kept it a secret, the
sleeping porch was magic. At night,'
I'd turn off the light, lie on my back
in bed, and stare up into the dark-
ness. The ceiling slanted downward,
toward the west, and after awhile it
would begin to sway, very gently,
from side to side ... and then, as if
someone had turned on a TV, figures
would form, and begin to move.
Images and voices, as clear as
those on the screen of the Starlight
Drive-In, would unfold in complex
dramatic scenes. The movies I
watched on the ceiling were always
westerns, usually in black and
white.
They starred Roy. Rogers, Gene
Autry,' Hopalong Cassidy, Lash
LaRue, Jimmy Wakely, Tex Ritter,
Rex Allen, the Lone Ranger, and
other cowboy heroes. I looked for-
ward to each night's presentation
and watched with the same excite-
ment as I watched the double-fea-
tures every Saturday afternoon in
the'walk-in theater in Wauchula,
next to the Wauchula State Bank.

Preserve History


BARTOW Thank you for
your endorsement of saving the
cigar factor).
Though not a native
Bartowan, my heart is here.
Bartow is supposedly described
at its entrance as "Historic
Bartow." The designation will not
apply much longer if we contin-
ue to tear down memories.
Some that come to mind are
the Oaks Hotel, the old city hall,
the delightful old train station,
the Florida National Guard


armory which was torn down to
make way for a parking lot, and
as you mentioned, the second
Summerlin Institute building.
The fires that we have had in
the past several years also have
destroyed some old landmarks.
It's interesting that we as
Americans dream about and
make it a reality, if possible, visit-
ing European nations to enjoy the
"old buildings."

ANNE SMITH


Admission to the theater was 35
cents. Popcorn was a dime and cokes
were a nickel.
The movies on the sleeping porch
ceiling were not only free but
imbued with the magic of a little
boy's dreams.

What was that phrase again?
Oh yes.
It must be true; I saw-it on the

Harley-Davidson /Buell In Lake

Wales To Celebrate Grand Opening


Participants will be in "hog-
heaven" as Central Florida's
newest Harley-Davidson/Buell
dealership will celebrate its
grand opening on Saturday, Feb.
17.
Located at 1501 Longleaf
Boulevard south of Lake Wales,
the dealership carries a full line
of Harley-Davidson and Buell
Motorcycles as well as Motor-
Clothes, Harley and Buell
themed gift and collectibles.
The parts, accessories, full
service department and Dyno
Room are located in the 36,000
square foot building.
Saturday's grand opening will
feature shows by motorcycle
stuntman Bubba Blackwell also
known as "The Buell American
Daredevil."
Blackwell is the only official
Harley-Davidson daredevil to


bring back the nostalgia and hu-
man drama of the stunt jumping
made popular by Evel Knievel.
Before 6.5 million viewers on
the Tonight Show with Jay Leno,
Blackwell flew his Harley over
14 semi trucks, creating a name
for himself in the record books
and daredevil history.
Also on hand to entertain will
be musician Bobby Friss.
Friss and his band will pre-
sent two shows during the event.
Friss appeared on the David
Letterman show in New York
City and soon after was in the
studio recording with guitar leg-
end Pat Travers.
"Cut Loose," his first CD, was
released in 1988 and received
regular rotation airplay from
many Florida FM stations, help-
ing it to sell more than 10,000
units in Florida alone.


From his early days on the
road, Friss had a strong follow-
ing with bikers and that contin-
ues to this day. Harley-Davidson
events are an important part of
Bobby's schedule, with annual
performances in Daytona Beach
for Bike Week and Biketoberfest
and many Wisconsin shows in-
cluding the Milwaukee Rally and
Harley-Davidson's 100th Cele-
bration.
The event also will feature
Granger and Son's famous bar-
beque, drinks, and "spin to win"
prizes. A special treat that bik-
ers will have is the opportunity
to drive through a special tent
and have their pictures taken
with one of several 2007 Calen-
der Dolls at no charge. This is

Florida And 29 States Reach An $8

Million Settlement With Bayer Corp.


Florida and 29 additional
states have reached an $8 mil-
lion settlement with Bayer Cor-
poration, resolving an investiga-
tion into the marketing of a drug
to lower cholesterol.
The settlement was part of a
consumer protection enforce-
ment action initiated over con-
cerns that Bayer failed to ade-
quately disclose safety risks as-
sociated with Baycol.
In May 1998, Bayer began
marketing Baycol, a type of cho-
lesterol-lowering drug known as
a station. Statins carry a known
risk of myopathy, a weakening of
the muscles, as well as a more
serious muscular disease.
Through post-marketing stud-
ies of its product, Bayer learned
that the risk associated with
Baycol was significantly higher
compared to other stations, par-
ticularly at higher doses and
when combined with another
particular cholesterol-lowering
drug. Baycol was withdrawn
from the prescription drug mar-
ket in August 2001.
The investigation, initiated by
the states in 2004, alleged that
while Bayer informed the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration
about these adverse effects, the
company failed to adequately
warn consumers.
The settlement requires
Bayer to pay a total of $8 million
to the 30 participating states.
Florida's share of the settlement
funds is $200,000 and will reim-
burse taxpayers for the cost of

Honorary Chairmen a Source of Inspiration For All


By NEAL DUNCAN
Community Correspondent

The 2007 version of Bartow's
Relay For Life is scheduled to
take place on April 13 and 14 at
Summerlin Park on Wilson
Lake.
Bartow held its annual kick-
off event at Citrus & Chemical
Bank in January. The event,
sponsored by Mosaic, is held
each year as a rally for those re-
turning teams, as well as an ori-
entation for new teams that may
not know exactly what Relay For
Life is.
Another purpose of the kick-
off is the public announcement of
the honorary chairmen; these in-
dividuals are cancer survivors or
caregivers.
This year, Bartow named
three honorary chairmen for the -
2007 event: Bonnie Allen,
Keonte' Gavin, and Abby
McDanal.
Well-known in the commu-
nity, Mrs. Allen and her hus-
band, Ken, have been in Bartow
for years, giving back so much to
the community they love.
"Cancer has touched our fam-
ily in many ways;.my mom, my
mother-in-law, my brothers, my
uncle and aunt, :and many
friends," Mrs. Allen said. "But
my real job as a caregiver began
when I was 37 years old."
Mrs. Allen had four children
who were'all healthy, happy, and
very active. Her oldest daughter,
Kim, was a senior band member,
in the Anchor Club, National
Honor Society, ran track, and
was a happy teenager.
But then she developed a
small lump near her collar bone
that after a month, still had not
gone away.
"When it didn't go away, we
went to the doctor, and our won-
derful Dr. McMicken began to
prepare us for what was to be-
come a real nightmare," Mrs. Al-
len said. "We finally got the
news that Kim had Hodgkins
disease, and we traveled to
Gainesville for the staging proc-
ess, which included exploratory
surgery and three months of ra-
diation. A year later, she had a
reoccurrence, and this time it
was more surgery, chemo and ra-
diation." .
Many times they faced almost
losing Kim.
In this difficult situation, the
Allen family continued to turn to
family and friends, as well as
keeping an unwavering faith in
God.
"It was definitely a growing
time for all of our family and my
Bible Study friends; we prayed
so hard. Kim developed other
physical problems due to her
treatments, but we thanked God
for remission, and she went on
with her life," Mrs. Allen said.
After 20 years, Kim developed
breast cancer, due to the radia-
tion she had received.
"Another horrible blow was
that she was misdiagnosed, and
we went an additional five
months thinking it 'was just fi-


brocystic disease," said Mrs. Al-
len. "When we finally discovered
that it was breast cancer, I knew
we were in for a very bad time.
"Kim had already had all the
radiation and chemotherapy that
she could have. However, we had
no other choice if we wanted her
to live."
So the family decided to take
the risk, and with the support of
the family, including Kim's hus-
band, Gerald Tucker, and her
daughter, Ashley Tucker, they
all began what would be a coura-
geous four and half year battle
that ultimately ended on Aug. 1,
2004, with the passing of Kim.
"Before Kim was taken from
us, she and her husband Gerald
had become involved in an
American Cancer Society event
Relay For Life," Mrs. Allen said.
"Kim and Gerald became in-
volved with the Relay from its
inception in Bartow.
"Both of them, along with
their daughter, worked so hard
to form a team and raise money.
I, on the other hand, was in-
volved with the entertainment
that first year. We all had a
great time, and we were commit-
ted to the event."
This commitment has never
wavered, with Mrs. Allen being
involved as a team leader, enter-
tainer, and executive committee
member.
In another cruel twist of fate,
Ken Allen was diagnosed with
prostate cancer approximately
one year ago, and Mrs. Allen
went back to being a caregiver
and praying that her husband
would be healed.
"God has a plan," she said.


"His plan is to prosper -s, and to
heal us. I don't know what I
would have done with out His
help.
"Even though Kim died, she is
alive. She is here, she is wvith us,
spurring us on to greater
heights. So let's go for it! Let's
give it all we have to honor and
glorify all those who have fought
the good fight. Let's keep our
eyes on the goal and get rid of
this terrible disease."
The next two honorary chair-
men for the Bartow Relay For
Life don't have quite as exten-
sive a story as Mrs. Allen's, but
certainly have had a difficult
road and have shown courage in
the face of adversity at such
young ages.
Honorary Chairman Keonte'
Gavin is an 11-year-old, fifth
grade student.
He was diagnosed with acute
lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
approximately two years ago,
and is still undergoing treat-
ment.
He also faces other problems:
He was diagnosed with nephrotic
syndrome 10 months prior to be-
ing diagnosed with ALL.
According to Keonte's mother,
Equilla Cherry, "It has been a
struggle, especially being a sin-
gle parent. It's hard dealing with
the doctor appointments and
other life issues we face on a
daily basis.
"We are grateful to have my
mother, the doctors, and organi-
zations such as the American
Cancer Society to help us with
the struggle."
Even with his cruel disease
and often being very tired,


Keonte' has taken on the oppor-
tunity of being an honorary
chairman, and has challenged
family and friends to assist him
in raising funds for this year's
Relay For Life.
And just like Keonte', the next
honorary chairman has been
stricken by cancer.
Abby McDanal was diagnosed
with leukemia and went into re-
mission all by the tender age of
6.
According to her mother,
Cynthia McDanal, "Since Abby's
initial diagnosis at age 5, Abby
has been deeply involved in her
own treatment. She speaks di-
rectly with her nurses and physi-
cians, knows the names and dos-
ages of her' daily medications,
and understands and follows the
precautions she must take as a
result of her compromised im-
mune system."
Like Keonte', Abby copes with
her illness by educating and sup-
porting others with similar ill-
nesses. In a day and time where
the word "hero" is used way too
much, these two children are he-
roes in every sense of the word.
They both are promoting
awareness of the Bartow Relay
set for April 13 and 14 at Bartow
High School, as well as asking
the Bartow community for mone-
tary donations and event partici-
pation.

Helping Kids Say 'No' to Drugs


It's never easy, but it is es-
sential that parents talk to
their children about drugs.
Despite widespread anti-
drug education programs, what
influences children most is
their peers. And with drug us-
age becoming common among
even young children, it's im-
portant for you to help your.
child to be prepared for poten-
tial drug encounters.
When is the right time to
begin drug discussions with
your children? It's long before
they've become teens. Experts
say children as young as five
have the ability to comprehend
that certain things are bad for
them.
This is a time to explain to
your child why some common
substances (such as cigarettes,
alcohol, and certain household
products) are called drugs. Be
ready to explain why these
substances are harmful.
When you start such discus-
sions early, it becomes easier
to add additional age-appropri-
ate material as your child


grows. With children as young
as 8 commonly having their
first drug experience, usually
inhaling common household
products, you want to prepare
your child early to be able to
handle situations where drugs
may be involved.
An important step parents
can take is to help their child
develop a plan of action for
dealing with drug situations. If
a friend asks them to try some
substance, your child should
already be practiced in saying
no.
That sounds easy, but kids
want to belong and fit in. If
sniffing some household chemi-
cal is what the "cool" kids are
doing, your child needs support
to be able to refuse to join in.
Encourage your child to dis-
cuss how he or she would feel
and react in .such situations.
Try role playing typical situa-
tions so your child can get a
real feel for what his or her re-
actions might be. Let your
child know you understand
how difficult such situations


can be.
Be ready for questions
about your own experiences
with drugs. Open, honest com-
munication is usually best, but
be aware that adolescents
might just as easily feel that if
you did it, there's no reason
they can't, too.
Your library or local health
department has material on
talking to kids about drugs.
And if you suspect your child is
being exposed to drug usage,
or may be experimenting or us-
ing already, talk to your
school's counselor for advice on
what to do and where to turn
for additional help.

Ill and Poor Pet Owners Find Relief

With PAWS Support Group At UF


Many people who suffer from
debilitating illnesses such as
cancer and AIDS struggle emo-
tionally, physically and finan-
cially to care for themselves, so
properly looking after their four-
legged family members can
quickly become more effort than
they can shoulder alone.
Enter the Pets Are Wonderful
Support group, or PAWS, at the
University of Florida College of
Veterinary Medicine.
"We generally have 20 to 30
clients, and each of them can
have a limit of three pets that
well treat," said Jenna Ashton,
class of 2007, who since 2001 has
played a key role in running
PAWS and currently serves as
its vice president of surgery.
Richard Martin, a retired Pa-
cific Bell employee whose income
is a monthly disability check,
has been a PAWS client for five
or six years, he said.
Martin has brought Rip, his
13-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback
crossbred dog, to PAWS for rou-
tine physical examinations and
for periodic biopsies of the fatty
tumors Rip is prone to getting on
his body.
Martin first heard about
PAWS through the Ryan White
program at the public health de-
partment.
"It has really been a blessing
for us," said Martin, who ac-
quired Rip as a puppy from his
nephew. "I probably couldn't af-
ford to have a pet if I had to pay
all the costs myself, after rent,
utilities and insurance."
PAWSworks with representa-
tives of community organizations
that serve individuals with spe-
cial health needs to identify po-
tential clients.
Participants must certify that
they have a terminal or debili-
tating illness, and that they
meet low-income criteria.
"The program was patterned
after one in California that was
set up specifically to help AIDS
patients at a time when they
were considered pariahs and of-
ten had no one for emotional

support, except their pets," said
Dr. Jack Gaskin, who along with
Dr. Amy Stone, serves as PAWS'
clinical instructor and adviser.
Dr. Natalie Isaza, is the group's
surgery supervisor.
He added that PAWS volun-
teers are compassionate, commu-
nity-minded and dedicated to the
true calling for many veterinari-
ans: the human-animal bond.
"Our clients are needy and
very grateful that these young
professionals-to-be take time
from their busy schedules to as-
sist them and their pets," Gaskin
said. "It's very much a mutually
beneficial relationship."
Gaskin credited the program's
founder, UF veterinary college
professor emeritus Dr. Tom
Lane, with the program's suc-
cess. Lane, who also helped to
create the college's 24-hour pet
loss support hotline, retired in
2000.
"So much of the veterinary
community has benefited from
Dr. Lane's largesse and exper-
tise," Gaskin said. "He is very
much a credit to our college."
To participate in surgery clin-
ics, students must have com-
pleted either the shelter medi-
cine or surgical rotations,
whereas for general clinics to
serve as doctors under faculty
supervision students must be
juniors or seniors and have
taken either general medicine or
small animal medicine.
Freshman and sophomore stu-
dents serve as technicians.
Money is allocated to the
group through the Veterinary
Medical College Council, which
receives funding from the UF-


wide Board of College Councils.
Gaskin said PAWS also had
benefited from support from
Westside Animal Hospital and
its owner, veterinarian Dr. Wil-
bur Wood, as well as from Mi-
canopy Animal Hospital and its
owner, veterinarian Dr. Molly
Pearson.
"They really helped in the
early phases of the program by
volunteering their clinics, staff
and resources," Gaskin said. "In
addition, Cheryl Shechta and
her associates at Webster Veteri-
nary Supply have been very gen-
erous in donating supplies over
the years."
In addition to supplies pro-
vided through Webster, pharma-
ceutical companies including
Pfizer, Novartis and Bayer -
have donated medication to be
distributed to pets receiving care
through the program.
Hills Pet Food has donated
food for PAWS participants as
well.
"What's really important
about PAWS is that third- and
fourth-year students with clini-
cal experience give guidance to
first- and second-year students
who, in turn, gain firsthand ex-
perience dealing with clients, pa-
tients and routine veterinary
care issues before they enter
their formal clinics," Gaskin
said. "The PAWS environment is
low-key and unhurried, so stu-
dents have the opportunity to
learn their way around the small
animal clinic and gain some
clinical expertise in advance of
their classmates who choose not
to participate."


Mental Exercise May Improve Life


1;: ~'~lj'L;-""'
rl ;


Just as physical exercise is
good for the body, mental train-
ing can keep older minds func-
tioning better, with results last-
ing for years.
Older adults who received just
10 sessions of mental training
showed long-lasting improve-
ments in memory, reasoning and
speed of processing five years af-
ter the intervention, say re-
searchers who conducted the Ad-
vanced Cognitive Training for
Independent and Vital Elderly
study, or ACTIVE.
The findings appear in the
Dec. 20 issue of the Journal of
the American Medical Associa-
tion.
The mental exercises were de-
signed to improve older adults'
thinking and reasoning skills
and determine whether the im-
provements also could affect sen-
iors' capacity to follow medica-
tion instructions correctly or re-
act to traffic signals quickly.
"Our findings clearly suggest
that people who engage in an ac-
tive program of mental training
in late life can experience long-
lasting gains from that training,"
said study researcher Dr. Mi-
chael Marsiske, an associate pro-
fessor of clinical and health psy-
chology at the University of Flor-
ida College of Public Health and
Health Professions.
"The positive results of AC-
TIVE thus far strongly suggest
that many adults can learn and
improve well into their later
years."
The researchers also discov-
ered some evidence of the train-
ing's "transfer" to everyday func-
tions. Compared with those who
did not receive mental training,
participants in the three train-
ing groups memory, speed of
processing and reasoning re-
ported less difficulty performing
tasks such as cooking, using
medication and managing fi-
nances, although the effect of
training on performance of such
daily tasks only reached statisti-
cal significance for the reason-
ing-trained group.
"We had about 25 years of
knowledge prior to the ACTIVE
study suggesting that older
adults' thinking and memory
skills could be trained, but we




/ ./


didn't know whether these men-
tal gains affected real-life skills,"
said Marsiske, also a member of
UF's Institute on Aging. "In this
study we see some evidence that
training in basic mental function
can also improve seniors' ability
to perform everyday tasks."
The ACTIVE study is the first
large-scale, randomized con-
trolled study of cognitive train-
ing in healthy older adults.
Funded by the National Insti-
tute on Aging and the National
Institute of Nursing Research,
the study involved 2,802 seniors
aged 65 to 96 who were divided
into groups to receive training in
memory, reasoning or speed of
processing in 10 90-minute ses-
sions over a five- to six-week pe-
riod. A fourth group received no
training.
Those in the memory training
group were taught strategies for
remembering rord lists and se-
quences of items, text material
and the main ideas and details
of stories.
Participants in the reasoning
group received instruction on
how to solve problems that fol-
low patterns, an ability that is
useful in such tasks as reading a
bus schedule or completing an
order form. Speed of processing
training was a computer-based
program that focused on the
ability to identify and locate vis-
ual information quickly, skills
that are used when looking up
phone numbers or reacting to
traffic signs.
When tested immediately af-
ter the training period, 87 per-
cent of participants in speed
training, 74 percent of partici-
pants in reasoning training and
26 percent of participants in
memory training showed reliable
improvement in their respective
mental abilities.
In earlier reports, researchers
found the improvements had
I been maintained two years after
training, particularly for seniors
who were randomized to receive
"booster" training one and three
years after the original training.
The improvements in mem-
pry, problem solving and concen-
tration after training roughly
counteracted the degree of cogni-
tive decline that older people

without dementia may experi-
ence over a seven- to 14-year pe-
riod, said the paper's lead
author, Dr. Sherry L. Willis, of
Pennsylvania State University.
But researchers have now dis-
covered that cognitive improve-
ments in the participants were
still detectable five years after
training.
"The durability of training ef-
fects that we saw in ACTIVE ex-
ceeds what has been reported in
most of the published literature,"
Marsiske said. "Five years after
training, seniors are still outper-
forming untrained participants
in the mental abilities on which
they received instruction."
Researchers are now discuss-
ing with the National Institute
on Aging and the National Insti-
tute of Nursing Research how
best to follow up these findings.
"By actually manipulating the
type of experience with cogni-
tive activities that seniors have
in an experiment, the ACTIVE
trial has been incredibly impor-
tant in providing evidence that
there is a causal relationship be-
tween 'using it' and not 'losing
it,'" said Dr. Elizabeth A.L.
Stine-Morrow, a professor of
educational psychology at the
Beckman Institute at the Uni-
versity of Illinois at Urbana-
Champaign. "Showing that
training gains are maintained
over five years is a stunning re-
sult because it suggests that a
fairly modest intervention in
practicing cognitive skills can
have relatively long-term ef-
fects."
In addition to Marsiske, AC-
TIVE investigators include Dr.
Karlene Ball, University of Ala-
bama at Birmingham; Dr. Jef-
frey Elias, National Institute on

Lake Wales Gets Ready For

Its Biggest Mardi Gras Ever


Lake Wales Mardi Gras Com-
mittee is gearing up for.what is
expected to be the greatest
Mardi Gras event ever in Lake
Wales.
At last count, more than 30
entries were signed up for the
parade. More than ever before,
this year's Mardi Gras celebra-
tion is targeted toward not just
to folks looking for a party, but
to families and children alike.
The official Mardi Gras Kick
Off will be Friday, Feb. 16, when
Tampa's Fox 13 will be broad-
casting live from downtown Lake
Wales between the hours of 7:30
and9 a.m. .
Friday night party goers will
have a couple of options. The
Krewe of Pegasus Gala Corona-
tion Ball will be held from 7 p.m.
until 1 a.m. at the Lake Wales
Country Club.
Meanwhile, from 5 to 10 p.m.,
the fun downtown will include
music, food, and beverages at the
Main Street Mardi Gras Bash
Music and Garden near the Wa-
chovia Bank parking lot.


Families should be sure to
come downtown Friday night to
enjoy the games, entertainment,
and fun put together by the
teamwork of Lake Wales Mardi
Gras and Friday Night Live.
Not to give away all secrets,
but it is rumored that there will
be a Kid Zone with a rock wall,
bounce houses, and bungee
jumping. The Kid Zone will be
open all day on Saturday and
Sunday, as well, sponsored by
the Lake Wales Police Athletic
League.
On Saturday, Feb. 17, the fes-
tivities will begin right where
they left off Friday night. All
day, from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m.,
food, arts, and craft vendors will
fill the streets of downtown.
In addition, the Chalet Su-
zanne Mardi Gras Breakfast will
be from 8 until 11 a.m. on Satur-
day. Call the Chalet for reserva-
tions at 1-800-433-6011.
Webber University will have
its third annual 5K Fun Run/
Walk early Saturday morning,
which will take the runners on a


scenic tour of Lake Wailes and
the parade route. After the 5K
contestants finish, they will need
to get in costume for the parade.
The Mardi Gras parade will
start in downtown Lake Wales
at 3 p.m. and this year's event
promises to be a flamboyant
show. Ken Suarez from Fox 13 is
the grand marshal of the parade.
Don't think that the fun stops
when the parade ends. The Mu-
sic Garden will be open until 10
p.m. and local downtown restau-
rants will be open as well.
If you haven't had enough fun
after all that, join the Krewe of
Rex at its Prince of Wales Grand
Coronation Ball from 7 p.m. un-
til midnight at the Lake Wales
Country Club on Fat Tuesday,
Feb. 20.

Lake Wales Mardi Gras and the

We have the American and
smiley flags flying all around the
porch and they do look festive.
The American flag is so patri-
otic and the smiley flag says
"Hello, come in the museum and
visit us."
We have been open for four
days a week for two weeks and
have had lots of visitors. Do
come in and take a look.
The museum is so pretty, and
admission is free.
We are planning a big cere-

the museum.
The chiefs clothes were given
to the museum by Jim and La-

Seminole artifacts you would
like to give to the museum, we
will gladly display them. We'll
let you know when the unveiling
will take place.

ALEENE MAYO became the newest member of the 90 Year Club
of the Fort Meade Historical Society on Jan. 14. (Photo provided)


5, in 1916. At that time, the
American Chemical Company
owned the town and operated a
phosphate mine that opened in
1899.
"The company owned all the
100 homes. Tiger Bay was a
thriving town with a train com-
ing through twice a day. It was
called the 'Happy Jack' and went
from Fort Meade to Tampa. John
Hancock owned a livery stable
where residents could rent a
horse and buggy.
S"He also owned one of a few
cars in the area. He used to hire
the car out and take people to
Tampa.
"Residents of the mining town
and people from the surrounding
farms and ranches bought most
of their groceries from the com-
pany commissary. The commis-
sary had a rail out in front to tie
up the horses. There was a two
room school house.
"The school had a basketball
team and the students often put
on plays. Lawrence Mayo lived
in the mining quarters and went
to the Tiger Bay school when a
flu epidemic closed the Fort
Meade schools.


"Mayo said the town had its
own power provided by the min-
ing company as well as tele-
phones, something that Fort Me-
ade didn't have.
"George Hancock said they
.farmed the land and his father
ran a meat market beside the
commissary. He said it was a
great little town, even had a
theater.
"Tiger Bay got its name from
'the blind tiger.' The blind tiger
was a place to buy liquor when it
was against the law to sell liquor
in Polk County. It was close to
the mine, possibly in a swamp
clearing called a bay, hence the
name Tiger Bay.
The company town began to
wither and die after a strike in
1919, the same year a rock dry-
ing plant burned. After that, the
company built a railroad line
from Tiger Bay to Pierce. The
mine closed for good in 1924.
"In 1915 much of the land was.
sold for real estate development.
Most of the big shops moved to
Fort Meade and Frostpoof.
There's nothing out there any
more."
Thanks to Velma for this arti-
cle of history on Tiger Bay.

ration and finalist notifications
were sent this week.
More than 1.4 million stu-
dents entered the 2007 National
Merit Program by taking the
preliminary SAT/National Merit
Scholarship Qualifying Test
(PSAT/NMSQT).
The 2007 National Merit fi-
nalists, including thirteen Polk
students, represent less than one
percent of U.S. high school sen-
iors and are the highest scoring
entrants in the country.
Polk students will now com-
pete for more than 8,200 Merit
Scholarships totaling more than,
$33 million. National Merit


Scholarships will be awarded in
the spring and summer' of 2007.

Fire Dangers Are Serious In Winter


With winter storms and cold
weather impacting much of the
country, the need for supplemen-
tal heating is on the rise.
Continued reports of deaths
and injuries associated with al-
ternative heating products
prompted the U.S. Consumer
Pi'oduct Safety Commission
(CPSC) again to warn consumers
to exercise extreme caution
when using space heaters, kero-
sene heaters, and fireplaces.
On Jan. 17, a 1-year-old,
Westmoreland, N.Y., girl was
killed when a space heater in her
room ignited a fire.
Her mother, while trying to
rescue the child, received burns
to her hands, arms and face. In
another recent incident, a Tar-
rant City, Ala.. couple was killed
when embers from their fire-
place ignited a fire that spread
throughout the home.
"There are nearly 25,000 fires
and 140 deaths on average each
year from portable heaters, fire-
places and chimneys," said
CPSC Acting Chairman Nancy
Nord. "Use these products prop-
erly and have working smoke
and carbon monoxide alarms to
help keep your-family safe this
winter." .' "
Home heating equipment is
one of the most common causes
of residential structure fires, sec-
ond only to cooking fires. Port-
able heaters, including space
heaters, are the leading cause of
deaths in home heating equip-
ment-related fires.
Space heaters can cause fires
if they are placed too close to
flammable materials such as
drapes, furniture or bedding.
Fireplaces can cause fires if
the chimney is cracked, blocked


You can tell a lot about a fellow's
character by his way of eating
jelly beans.
-Ronald Reagan
:i ^


or coated with creosote, or if
sparks and embers reach flam-
mable materials.
Also, carbon monoxide (CO)
from gasoline-powered genera-
tors that may be used during
winter weather-related power
outages can kill in minutes. Con-
sumers should never use a gen-
erator, charcoal or gas grill in an
enclosed area.
In addition, fuel-burning ap-
pliances can cause carbon mon-
oxide poisoning if they are im-
properly installed, poorly main-
tained, have defective or blocked
venting systems, or are misused.
To help prevent deaths and
injuries, CPSC urges consumers
to:
Have your heating system,
water heater and any other gas,
,oil, or coal burning appliances
serviced by a qualified techni-
cian every year.
Install battery-operated CO
and smoke alarms in your home.
Locate CO alarms outside the
bedrooms in each separate sleep-
ing area. Locate smoke alarms
on each level of the house and in-
side every bedroom.
Replace smoke and CO
alarm batteries in the spring
and fall when you change the
time on your clocks.
If an alarm sounds, leave
your home immediately and call
911.
Seek' medical attention im-
mediately if you are feeling
dizzy, lightheaded or nauseous.
These are symptoms of CO poi-
soning.
Have flues and chimneys in-
spected before each heating sea-
son for leakage and blockage by
creosote (an oily deposit that
readily ignites) or debris.


Open the fireplace damper
before lighting the fire and keep
it open until the ashes are cool.
Never close the damper if the
ashes are still warm. An open
damper may help prevent build-
up of poisonous gases inside the
home.
Store fireplace ashes in a
fire resistant container and
cover it with a lid. Keep the con-
tainer outdoors and away from
combustibles.
Never use flammable liquid
to start a fire.
Place a space heater on a
.level, hard and nonflammable
surface (such as a ceramic tile
floor), not on rugs or carpets or
near bedding or drapes. Keep the
heater at least three feet from
bedding, drapes, furniture and
other flammable materials. Keep
children and pets away from
space heaters.
To reduce the risk of fire,
never leave a space heater on
when you go to sleep or place a
space heater close to any sleep-
ing person. Turn the space
heater off if you leave the area.
Never use extension cords to
power electric heaters.
Use a space heater that has
been tested to the latest safety
standards and certified by a na-
tionally-recognized testing labo-
ratory. These heaters will have
the most up-to-date safety fea-
tures. A newer gas space heater
that meets current safety stan-
dards will shut off if oxygen lev-
els fall too low.
Never burn charcoal inside
of homes, vehicles, tents, or
campers. Charcoal should never
be used indoors, even if ventila-
-tion is provided.

Preliminary Report Finds More

Manatees Died This Year Than Last


A preliminary report from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
ser.vation Commission (FWC)
says there were 416 manatee
deaths in state waters in 2006.
That compares to 396 in 2005.
Scientists are unsure as to
whether the increase reflects
manatee population growth, in-
creased mortality or better de-.
tection of carcasses.
However, the best available
science indicates that Florida's
manatee population is stable or
growing in all regions of the
state except the Southwest,
which may contain more than a
third of the statewide popula-
tion.
The FWC report indicates wa-
tercraft-related mortalities and
red tide contributed to more
than half of the total deaths in
2006 in instances where scien-
tists could determine the cause
of death.
Researchers classify manatee
mortalities in eight categories -
watercraft, floodgate/lock, other
human, perinatal (newborn),
cold stress, other natural, unde-
termined .and unrecovered car-
casses.
The number .of manatee
deaths declined in every cate-
gory except watercraft, undeter-
mined and unrecovered.
"It is always sad to see such
high numbers, especially in wa-
tercraft-caused mortality, but
these numbers shed some light
on the measures we can take in
our commitment to reducing hu-
man-related threats to manatees
and possibly other threats," said
FWC Chairman, Rodney Bar-
reto. "With continued human
population growth and enjoy-
ment of the outdoors, we must
all be diligent in the .conserva-
tion and protection of this gentle
animal."
FWC scientists report that


red tide continues to threaten
manatees in Southwest Florida
with 37-96 deaths annually in
four of the past five years.
Preliminary findings suggest
red tide may have been responsi-
ble for the deaths of 61 manatees
in 2006.
The 86 watercraft-related
manatee deaths in 2006 are the
second highest on record for that
category.
As a result, FWC law enforce-
ment will enforce a special
manatee speed zone detail this
weekend. The FWC is urging
boaters to abide by manatee
speed zones and assuring law-
abiding boaters, who hit mana-
tees that they will not receive ci-
tations if they report such acci-
dents.
Accident reports provide valu-
able information for sharpening
manatee protection efforts.
"The FWC's seizing every op-
tion in helping manatees con-
tinue to recover," Barreto said. "
We'll be exploring other options
to ensure recovery stays on
track."
For instance, manatee mortal-
ity figures provide useful infor-
mation on why manatees die and
the risks they face.
Information from necropsies
(non-human autopsies) help
FWC scientists develop conser-
vation measures to reduce risks
to manatees. One such measure
is development of the state's first
manatee management plan..
The draft plan, which is avail-.
able for public comment, exam-
ines past protections and out-
lines additional measures such
as protection of warm-water ref-
uges to reduce stress on mana-
tees during the winter.
It also proposes new measur-
able biological goals and objec-
tives that will provide bench-


marks and timelines to help
guide future management deci-
sions.
The number of manatees for
which a cause of death could not
be determined because of decom-
position of carcasses was unusu-
ally high in 2006, representing
37 percent or 155 of the total.
"Every year a substantial por-
tion of deaths cannot be attrib-
uted to a specific cause because
of the advanced decomposition of
the carcasses," said FWC re-
search scientist. Leslie Ward.
Scientists use population
models to estimate manatee
population growth.
Although the most recent
analysis indicates manatee num-
bers have been stable or growing
in many parts of the state, some
areas may require more atten-
tion.
"The FWC is aware of that,"
Barreto said. "But the bottom
line is the FWC and other par-
ties are taking steps that have
moved manatees away from the
threat of imminent extinction,
and will continue to nurture
them along the road to full recov-
ery and use whatever tools it
takes."
-Manatee mortality informa-
tion is maintained by FWC staff
at the agency's Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute (FWRI) Ma-
rine Mammal Pathobiology
Laboratory in St. Petersburg.
It is the primary facility in
Florida for manatee necropsies.
Research done by the biologists
at the lab includes aging and life
history, skeletal anatomy and bi-
ology, pathology and forensics.

Manatees had a lot of people
watching their backs recently
during Operation Mermaid.
Federal, state and local law
enforcement agencies, together
with officers from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), patrolled 11
Florida counties to educate the
boating community about ways
they can help protect the endan-
gered marine mammals.
Officers talked to thousands
of boaters hundreds were
given boating citations or warn-
ings, and some were charged.
Leadership at Save the Manatee
Club had praise for the FWC's
expert coordination and initia-
tive of the awareness campaign.
Efforts such as this are espe-
cially critical now, following the
deadliest year ever documented,
for manatees, a club spokesman
said.
In 2006, 416 manatees died,
with at least 86 deaths as a re-
sult of boat strikes, tying the sec-
ond highest year on record.
"Last year's high mortality
only reinforces the overall trend
we've been seeing in recent
years," said Patrick Rose, execu-
tive director of Save the Manatee
Club.
The question is whether such
great efforts to protect the mana-
tee population will continue at
this level.
The FWC's recently-released
draft of their Manatee Manage-
ment Plan, which is the final
step in lowering the manatee's
classification on the state's im-
periled species list, allows a 30
percent decline in the population
over three generations.
In the last 10 years, more
than 3,100 manatees have died
from all causes, with over 760 of
those animals killed by boats.

about future plans to protect
Florida's manatees.
"The population can't possibly
continue to sustain mortality of
this kind," explained Rose. "The
FWC should give manatees the
highest level of state protection,

free


to be lowering the manatee's im-

Attention at the L.B. Brown Festival was
focused on Brown's old house as it served
as a backdrop for step teams like the Soul
Steppers (above left). Even the young ones
got in on the action as the 2-to-5-year-old
hip-hop class from Crystal's World of Dance
in Bartow showed off their moves (left).
John Boyd kicked off the dancing with an a
capella rendition of the national anthem
(right). The festival always draws a crowd
for its wide variety of eats (above right),
such as barbecue ribs, steamed crabs, and
fried fish on a stick. After eating, the festi-
val-goers could shop at the family-friendly
vendors, who sold many items, from clothes
to art (bottom middle). While mom and dad
shopped, the kids had fun on the inflatable
playgrounds (bottom left) or rode horses
(bottom right). Clifton Lewis, organizer for
the event, said he tries to keep the L.B.
Brown Festival growing, little by little,
every year.

It is almost always more enjoyable to do something
that we do well rather than something at which we fail
miserably. Whether playing a sport or a musical instru-
ment, the better we get at it, the more pleasure we usu-
ally derive from the activity. But this doesn't mean that
we have to be virtuosos. Not everyone can play the cello
like Yoyo Ma or play tennis like Venus Williams. The
good news is that it doesn't really matter how well we
play. What gives most of us satisfaction is that we are
getting better. When we start to learn something new,
the learning curve is steep, and so we see rapid improve-
ment, which generates a lot of satisfaction. After a while
however, we inevitably hit a plateau, where it requires
considerably more effort to improve. These plateaus are
the tough spots where we have to persevere and redou-
ble our efforts. We will be rewarded, but it takes time
and effort. Therefore, we should remember the old
adage: that if it's worth doing; it's worth doing right.
And, since many activities take years to perfect, it may
be best to also tell ourselves that if it's worth doing, it's
worth doing poorly when we're just starting out. We
should just do it with the aim of getting better at it!
In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends
only to want. R.S.V. Proverbs 14:23

Reflections


On Faith


Still Valentines?


By ROGER CAMPBELL

"Doesn't anybody stay together
anymore?" asked a once popular
song.
Sadly, it's a question that's still
in tune with today's marriage
miseries. Home breakups are the
major tragedy of our time, and
the trend keeps accelerating.
Thankfully, there are' some
efforts to right the marital ship
and stem the tide of this plague
that so negatively affects children
and those left alone to raise them.
SThe seven days leading up to
Valentine's Day have been desig-
nated as Marriage Week in the
United Kingdom since 1996 and
in the United States since 2002.
This special designation is to cel-
ebrate the importance of mar-
riage.
Julie Baumgardner, director of
"First Things First," believes
Valentine's Day is the perfect
time to make this emphasis, say-
ing: "We celebrate birthdays, we
celebrate holidays, but when it
comes to marriage, people often
forget that it's really something to
be celebrated."
An organization called
"Anscombe," at Princeton
University, is sponsoring an
upcoming conference titled
"Making Marriage Last."


I've written to this Princeton
group, commending them for
their effort to strengthen mar-
riages. We need all the help we
can get.
My first five words today were
spoken to my valentine of more
than 50 years: "I'm thankful we're
here together." And my sleepy
valentine's reply made my day:
"I'd be thankful to be anywhere
with you!"
Love makes marriage one of
life's greatest adventures, but
married people who ignore the
importance. of cultivating love
through caring Words and atti-
tudes miss out on the mutual feel-
ing of accomplishment' that
results from making a marriage
last.
A seminary student and his
wife were having such serious
marital problems that they con-
cluded divorce was their only
option. Then, agreeing to give
their marriage one more chance,
they sought counsel from one of
the professors at the seminary.
The wise professor advised
them to read I Corinthians 13
together each day for a month
and then report to him on how
they were doing. This moving
description of love, so often read
at weddings, says love is to be
patient, kind, giving, forgiving,


and faithful.
At the end of that month-long
experiment, this searching couple
had discovered the meaning of
love and rescued their marriage,
enabling them to have a long and
satisfying relationship and share
their discovery with others.
During my years as a pastor, I
developed a counseling approach
for couples who came to talk to
me about getting married that I
hoped would help them keep their
love alive.
First, I asked the prospective
groom why he wanted to marry
this woman. His answer was
almost always the expected:
because he loved her.
"Why do you love her?" I then
asked.
An awkward period of silence
often followed, during which I felt
sorry for the bride-to-be whose
future husband couldn't think of
one reason for loving her.
Finally, after time to think
about it, each of these men was
able to give reasons for his love,
as did the prospective brides
when they faced the same ques-
tion.
If you haven't voiced your love
to your valentine recently, speak
up!
Remove all doubts about your
love today.

Bake


Cooking can be a pain
sometimes.
After a long day of work,
sometimes the last thing you
want to do is create a deli-
cious meal from scratch.
It can be very tempting to
pick 'something up, but too
many to-go meals can be
expensive and unhealthy.
A better idea is creating
healthy and delicious
casseroles, freezing and then
popping them into the oven
on a busy night.

www.meals.com.
