Bartow Public Library: 110 Years of Reading


Bartow Public Library will cel-
ebrate 110 years of library ser-
vice this year.
The library is the oldest in
Polk County, and one of the oldest
in Central Florida.
The "birthday" of the library is
considered to be March 3, 1897,
when "a call" was placed in
Bartow's newspaper, Courier-
Informant, inviting all interested
in the formation of a Public
Library and Reading Room to
meet at Summerlin Institute to
organize.
By the end of the month, an
association was formed and
planned a circulating library.
In May, a room above the Polk
County National Bank on Main
Street was opened for library
reading. In 1899, the library
moved to a ground location at*
Broadway and Summerlin.
public use increased when there
were no stairs to climb.
There were many moves
S through the decades until the
library settled in its present loca-
tion at 2105 South Broadway
next to the Bartow Civic Center


complex.
Books enjoyed by library
members in the early years
included "The Invisible Man" and
"War of the Worlds," by H.G.
Wells. Also popular were
"Captains Courageous" by
Rudyard Kipling and "Dracula"
by Bram Stoker.
By the end of the decade, and
after three years in operation,
the Bartow Public Library
Association reported its holdings
at 335 bound volumes, 190
unbound volumes, eight pictures,
one map, one lamp, four tables,
one desk, 102 chairs, one water
bucket and one new broom.
Now the library houses 57,260
titles (books, films and audio-
books), plus computers for public
use, an art gallery, and offers a
number of programs for readers
of all ages.
More facts about the founding
of the library may be found in
"Bartow Public Library: More
Than 100 Years of Reading in
Bartow, Florida, 1897-2000,"
available at the library.

"It is my privilege as a Member

work session by Jonathan T.
Johnson, a Tallahassee lawyer
whose firm specializes in creating
such agencies.
A CDD carries out many of the
responsibilities usually associat-
ed with a homeowners associa-
tion, but is more financially stable
and more accountable to the city,
to state agencies, and to the pub-
lic, Johnson said.
The district will be governed
by a five-member board of super-
visors. Theinitial interim board
will be appointed by the city com-
mission presumably the five
people nominated by the' develbp-
er and after 90 days, members
are elected by property owners,
who cast one vote per acre of land
owned.
After six years, board members


are elected by homeowners in the
district.
"It, is int a substittite for the
City of Bartow," Johnson said of
the board. It has no zoning or per-
mit-issuing authority.
The board will have the
authority to sell bond issues and
assess taxes within the bound-
aries of the district to pay for
improvements. The CDD is solely
responsible for the financing of
the improvements.
"We hope to sell bonds this
summer," Johnson said. "This is a
stable source of lower cost funds."
The city will continue to collect
taxes and impact fees from the
development.
CDD boards are governed by
the same laws as other public


agencies, including public meet-
ings, public records, and budget-
ing and bidding requirements,
Johnson said.
There are nearly 400 CDDs in
Florida.
The 506-acre Silver Company
tract is located between U.S.
Highway 98 and E.F. Griffin
Road.
This would be Bartow's first.
CDD, and would be called the
Saddle Creek Community
Development District.
SCity Atty. George Dunlap told
city commissioners that the ordi-
nance creating the CDD will come
before the commission for first
reading on March 5, and will
come up for a public hearing and
final action on March 19.

John and Dezzie Lane. He grew
up in Lakeland and graduated

completed law school before being

both immense patience and
respect for others.

4 The Polk County Democrat Feb. 26, 2007


Editorial -


At first blush, the proposal before the
Florida Legislature to abolish the property
tax and replace it with a two-and-a-half-
cent increase in the sales tax seems nothing
short of bizarre.
On closer examination, it seems like a
viable if not ideal way to solve
Florida's property tax crisis.
And crisis is not too strong a word.
First, three basics of Florida tax policy:
Florida has no personal income tax.
That is a major advantage that Floridians
have over much of the rest of the nation.
The Legislature historically has
reserved the sales tax as the state's prima-
ry form of revenue, but has yielded some
of this source to local governments.
Ad valorem property taxes historically
have been the primary source of tax rev-
enue for most cities and counties.
The theory behind ad valorem (which
translates "on the value") property tax is
that it is assessed against those people who
are fortunate enough to own property, his-
torically a measure of financial comfort, if
not wealth. It is a "progressive tax" in that
it imposes the highest taxes on those who
own the most expensive homes, and on
owners of business property.
A homestead exemption of $25,000 (it
used to be $10,000) allows homeowners
some relief. That figure once covered most
or all of the value of basic housing. Today,
"starter homes" are priced in six figures.
The concept that property tax is a "tax
on the rich" is out-of-date. Indeed, it is low
income homeowners who are most in
jeopardy of losing their homes through the
combination of skyrocketing property
taxes and insurance premiums.
The greatest criticism of the sales tax is
that it is a "regressive tax," meaning that it
imposes the greatest burden on those least
able to pay.
The "regressive tax" argument is not
entirely valid. Florida exempts two essen-
tials of human existence groceries and
medicines (both prescription and non-pre-
scription) from the sales tax. Every


effort for "tax reform" that comes out of
Tallahassee preserves those exemptions.
People have a choice when paying sales
tax; if they buy less merchandise, they pay
less tax.
Homeowners have no choice. Although
people are protected by the "Save Our
Homes" amendment for as long as they
keep their present homes, they get socked
when buying a new home. First-time
homeowners also get hit by the high taxes.
We still like a proposal we made early on
- an idea that is now circulating in
Tallahassee to go back to a pre-boom
base year (2001 has been proposed in the
capital) and index increases from that year
forward, limiting them to the increase in
population and inflation. That would keep
the present tax structure (sales tax for the
state, property tax for cities and counties)
in place, but would reverse the tax crisis
created by the housing boom.
It also would continue to give cities and
counties more control over their own des-
tinies by allowing them to set local tax
rates to meet local needs. We like the con-
cept of local control.
That said, the possibility of eliminating
property taxes and financing local govern-
ment with a higher sales tax much of
which would be paid by tourists has a
certain appeal.
It is at least worth a look.

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

Life Before Easy-Bake


Scrapping Property Tax


Is Worth a Look


When last we met, I remi-
nisced a little about a game my
Kelley cousins and I played
called "Eeks! The Toast!"
That was a game played with a
toy of my childhood days called
an Easy-Bake Oven. We'd put a
slice of bread in this little light-
bulb-powered toy oven, and pre-
tend to forget about it until we
could faintly smell the bread
warming, and scream, "Eeks! The
Toast!" This was before the really
sophisticated toys, like Pet Rocks
and Hula Hoops.
;Since "I am a few years past
baking in toy ovens, I have lost
track of Easy-Bake, and I even
speculated that in the unlikely
event it is still around, it is called
something cutesy like EZ-Bake.
Well, Kemo Sabe, the Easy-
Bake Oven is still around, and
they're still spelling it with real
words.
Thanks to Peggy Kehoe, our
managing editor, I have discov-
ered that there are 14,000 or so
Web sites on Easy-Bake Ovens,
Easy-Bake Mixes, the Easy-Bake
Potato Chip Maker, and even, of
course, the CPSC Easy-Bake
Oven recall.
All 14,000 of the sites, or at
least the three or four sites that I
looked at, reported that the first
Easy-Bake Oven was manufac-
tured in 1963, as "America's first
working toy oven."
1963?
Just a minute there, Bubba.
The Kelley kids and I played
with an Easy-Bake Oven when
we were all kids; I doubt I was
more than 10 or 12 years old.
In 1963, the year that Easy-
Bake historians say the first one
of these little puppies was made,
I was a first lieutenant, in the
United States Army.
Now I retained my child-like
sense of humor even as a first bal-
loon in the armed forces, but I did


not play with Easy-Bake Ovens.
By then, I was trying to learn
to cook on a real oven in a sec-
ond-story walk-up apartment in
Washington, D.C. It was not a
pretty thing to watch.
Having established that if I
ever expected to have a meal that
didn't come out of a can pre-
cooked stuff that only had to be
reheated I knew it was time to
abandon my bachelorhood.
It was in 1963 that Mary and I
were married.
Mary, the oldest of five chil-
dren, knew how to cook, and I'm
not talking about an Easy-Bake
Oven.
She was accustomed to cook-
ing for her parents and her four
siblings, and it took me several
months to get her to understand
that there were only two of us,
not seven, and the recipes she
used with such expertise needed
to be throttled back a little.
We had a lot of leftover supper
back in 1963.
Anyway, I was cooking on -
actually, in an Easy-Bake Oven
a good 10 years before historians
say the thing was invented.
According to the timelines on
the Internet, the Easy-Bake Oven
cost $15.95 in 1963. To put things
in perspective, the federal mini-
mum wage that year was $1.25,
and it hadn't been that high for
long. I was working for a buck an
hour at The Tallahassee
Democrat a couple of years
before that, and got the only 25
percent raise in my life when the
minimum wage went from $1 to
$1.25.
My point is that in 1963, an
Easy-Bake Oven went for 12.76
hours at minimum wage. Fast
forward to 2007, and 12.76 hours
at federal minimum wage is
$78.47. With a little luck, you can
find a small microwave oven for
that price.

War on Drugs Has Failed


SARASOTA Thank you for,
publishing this refreshing per-
spective ("Tiger Bay Club
Ponders Decriminalization of
Illegal Drugs") on the failed war
on drugs.
We certainly have lost this war.
Drug use statistics have varied
little over the last 30 years, other
than the increase to 10 percent of
high school seniors having tried
MDMA, more commonly known
as ecstasy. High school students


obtain these drugs through the
underground black market,
where there is not a license to lose
for selling to minors, or regula-
tions that will be followed to
ensure there are no chemical
adulterants poisoning those of
our children who decide to
experiment with drugs.
We have learned nothing from
alcohol prohibition, when adul-
terants cause health problems,
crime syndicates arose and


fought over lucrative supply con-
trol, and addicts hid rather than
allowing us to help them. At least
in alcohol prohibition, they didn't
arrest users for possession.
It is time to legalize drugs.
Visit Law Enforcement
Against Prohibition on the Web
(www.leatp.cc) and join with me
in working to end this silly war
against our neighbors as a sup-
porter of LEAP.

OUR READERS SAY

Drugs: Balance the Pain


PALM HARBOR History
teaches that relaxing prohibitory
drug laws diminishes the com-
bined net damage caused by the
drugs and by their enforcement.
In the 1920s, federal alcohol
prohibition caused more societal
damage than it prevented. In
1933, we ended it and tossed the
ball to the states. Most of them
began some form of regulation,
and the lawlessness of


Prohibition stopped.
At the other extreme was
tobacco, promoted in an unfet-
tered free market until the mid-
1960s. Tobacco's regulation has
reduced its damage to public
health without criminalizing
those who sell it..There have been
no serious proposals to go back,
either for alcohol or for tobacco,
two drugs as intoxicating (alco-.
hol), and as addictive (tobacco) as


any illegal drug.
Today we promote some drugs
and prohibit others, with almost
no drugs in between. It is the
worst possible situation. The
challenge is to put them all in
between and find their optimum
point of regulation, that point
where the pain of the drug bal-
ances the pain of its enforcement.

Marijuana and Scripture


DILLON, COL. It's time for

cannabis.


Another reason to stop caging
cannabis users that doesn't get
mentioned, is because it is
Biblically correct since Christ
God Our Father, The Ecologician,
indicates He created all the seed-
bearing plants, saying they are all


good, on the very first page
(Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30).
The only. Biblic dal restriction
placed on cannabis is that it is to
be accepted with thankfulness
(see 1 Timothy 4:1-5).

REPORTER'S CORNER / By PRISCILLA PERRY

Invest in Our Kids' Future


It used to be teens gathered at
the drug store for malts and after-
school socializing. There were
booths and padded stools and
maybe a radio with some new
tunes playing in the background.
And there was always a ham-
burger joint: where you could
drive up with a car full of friends
and check out the wheels.
Maybe inside would be a juke-
box and couples jitterbugging.
Kids needed to get together
and just hang out.
They still do.
What do they do now? Have
you heard about pasture parties?
Is that what our kids will remem-
ber most about their high school
years in Fort Meade?
It's for sure if they aren't in the
pasture they are on the highway
heading to some other city to
spend their time and money
because they don't have a choice.
If you are an investor and
want to put your money on a sure
thing, it seems that investing in


Fort Meade would double your
money. There are rows of empty
buildings in the downtown area.
Most have made the necessary
upgrades needed to accommo-
date anyone wanting to buy or
lease.
We're at a pivotal point in our
economic growth. It's like Jimmy
Stewart's movie, "It's a
Wonderful Life." Remember
Bedford Falls with all the busi-
nesses before George Bailey
stood out on that bridge in the
snow? Remember what it was
like when Potter had taken over
the town? George ran down the
street lined with less-than-family-
oriented establishments.
Maybe empty buildings in
Fort Meade are better than unde-
sireable businesses, but neither is
acceptable.
You can stand on the corner of
Broadway and Charleston and
imagine downtown on a week-
end: Cars lined on both sides of
the street, folks entering a movie


theater, strikes coming from the
bowling alley, families gathering
in the street for a "snake dance,"
and local talent performing at the
gazebo.
Teens today are more sophisti-
cated and catered to than those a
generation or so back. But there
are some things that don't
change. Teens need to establish
friendships, gain confidence, and
have acceptable options in their
social life.
What does Fort Meade have to
offer? The schools and churches
are working overtime to provide
activities for their members. But
they can only do so much for
their own.
Families would like to run
down the street to enjoy an hour
or so of entertainment, instead of
making the half-hour or longer
trip to another city.
Where does it start? Right
here in Fort Meade. Let's put our
money where our future is.


*'i .,;


Not a toy microwave oven; the
real thing.
Somehow, I can't envision
Uncle Holland and Aunt Evelyn
buying the Kelley kids a toy oven
that operated with the heat from
a light bulb for a day-and-a-half's
pay.
Back to the toy.
In 1993, Hasbro offered three
Easy-Bake Oven models, includ-
ing the Easy-Bake Oven and
Snack Center powered by a 100-
watt bulb.
The bulb was sold separately.
Go figure.
By 1993, Easy-Bake Ovens
could cook a variety of cakes,
cookies, candies, and other
desserts, all of which were made
from mixes placed in little bitty
pans and stuck into a slot in the
toy oven, which continued to use
the heat from a 100-watt bulb.
In 2003, a deluxe model that
could cook two little bitty dishes
at a time won the Toy of the Year
Award from Parenting magazine.
In February of this year, the
CPSC recalled 985,000 Easy-Bake
Ovens when it was discovered
that if kids stuck their fingers in
where the pans were supposed to
go, they could get burned.
Well duh!,
The recall fix was "a free retro-
fit kit with a consumer warning."
I presume that was a decal telling
you not to stick your fingers in it.
Today the Easy-Bake sells for
around $25, or about four times
minimum wage.
According to the Internet sites,
there were more than 16 million
Easy-Bakes sold by 1997. And
keep in mind, that was assuming
the first year of manufacture was
1963.
Add the one that the Kelley
kids and I played with at least 10
years earlier, and sales were more
than 16 million and one.

The Counseling Corner

From the American Counseling Association



Handling Disagreements With A Friend


Human beings are social crea-
tures. Time alone can be nice,
but we all need the warmth of
human companionship on a
regular basis.
But even more important
than simply interacting with
others are the relationships that
we build with some people.
These are people whom we care
about, share emotions with, and
depend upon for encouragement,
advice, and support.
These relationships, with the
people we consider real, close
friends, are special and impor-
tant. They're long-term relation-
ships. They can result from mar-
riage, friendships or business re-
lationships, and rest on common
foundations. Usually the people
we're closest to are those with
whom we share a number of
similarities.
But even in the closest of rela-
tionships, whether romantic or
between friends, there will still
be areas of disagreement. An im-'
portant element in establishing
or maintaining a healthy, long-


term relationship is how such
disagreements are handled.
Honesty, openness and trust
play important roles. One way of
building trust is to agree to be
honest with one another when
disagreements come up, and
then to actually do just that. For
a strong relationship to be estab-
lished and grow, both members
of the relationship must commit
to this goal.
It's sometimes called the
"ABC" method of sustaining a re-
lationship.
The "A" stands for affirming
the value of the relationship.
That means the two of you agree
that the relationship itself is
more important that either of
your views on any particular is-
sue.
The "B" stands for behavior,
for letting the other person know
that when there are disagree-
ments, you won't let them affect
the basics of the relationship. It
means that neither of you will
set ultimatums or try to force
your point of view on the other


person.
The "C" stands for clarifying
issues when there is a disagree-
ment. Rather than your "inter-
preting" the words and actions of
the other person, you have to be
open and honest with that per-
son and let him or her clarify the
intent and meaning of what has
been said.
Long-term relationships are
important to our lives. To make
them last and grow takes work.
One important key is to find
room within the relationship for
the differences that are going
naturally going'to exist between
any two people.

Lady Jackets Earn First


Home Victory, 8-2


By MARK KING
Sports Correspondent
Bartow High School's Lady
Jackets softball team returned to
its winning ways in front of a
packed house at home Thursday
night, with a dominant perform-
ance over their district rival
Lake Wales Lady Highlanders
with an 8-2 victory.
Candace Howell started for
the Lady Jackets and was the
winning pitcher of record. The.
junior hurler combined with
Sami Burton to fan two Bagpip-
ers and allow eight hits.
Bartow got things started off
early, scoring two runs in the
bottom of the first inning. Ra-
chael "Ray-Ray" Giddens
spanked a high chopper to sec-
ond for an infield base hit.
Then the Bartow Bomber,
Brandice Brown, racked an RBI
when she hit a worm-burning
two-bagger over the first base
into right field.
Brown got over to third on a
wild pitch by Highlander hurler
Rachael Hunt, then scored a run
when Diana Thompson hit a
fielder's choice to' third base.
It was three up and three
down in the third inning for Bar-
tow, but in the fourth the Jack-
ets exploded for six runs on five
base hits.
Gwen Jones got things going
when the speedster bunted her
way on and advanced to second
on a Highlander error.
With one out, Brown again
cranked a shot that scored Jones
from second. Then, teammate
Erin Foley lined a double to
right ceriter to bring Brown in
from second base.

these busy


hit their way on base to load the
bases for BHS. A fielder's choice
by Tiffany Douglas failed to
score Foley, who was nailed at
home, but with bases loaded
Kennah Orr drove in Thompson
for the third run of the inning.
A base hit by Tiffany
Rowlette, combined with aggres-
sive Bartow base running, scored
two more runs for Bartow before
Rowlette was tagged out at third
base.
Two runs scored by LW in the
top of the seventh were not
enough to bring the Highlanders
back into the game, and Bartow
walked away with its first home
field victory of the 2007 season.
On Friday, the Ladies
boarded the bus and trucked
down to Naples to play the
Golden Eagles.
After the JV Baby Bugs tied
the Golden Eaglets in the 5 p.m.
game, the varsity Bugs tangled
with Naples, another premier
program in Florida softball. Al-
though they played tough, the
Jackets came out on the short
end of the stick in an exciting 2-1
loss.
With the score tied at one in
the bottom of the ninth, Naples
got a base runner when a ball
brushed the lead-off batter's
sweatshirt, according to the
home plate umpire.
The runner was bunted over
to second, then a bloop-single
over the Bartow third baseman
brought in the winning run.
But Coach Glenn Rutenbar
was not too upset by the loss.
"It was a good game," Ruten-
bar said. "They've got a pitcher.
Freshman, 5-foot, 10-inches, big
girl. We won't face a better
pitcher this year."


And the numbers tend to ver-
ify the coach's assertion.
Through the nine-inning pitch-
ing duel, the Naples' pitcher
fanned 18 Bugs. That's an aver-
age of two strikeouts an inning.
Howell was the losing pitcher
for Bartow, throwing eight
strikeouts of her own.
"We did some good things. I
think this team will be just fine.
Now if someone had told me we'd
be two and four, I might have
thought differently. But we could
have beat them (Naples), so we
can play with anybody," Coach
Rutenbar added.
And the coach is right. The
team has improved tremen-
dously over the last several
games, so fans can be assured of
some exciting times throughout
the season.
Another thing to keep in
mind: The Golden Eagles are in.
the same division as Bartow, so
they may meet again in the re-
gionals if both teams advance
that far in the postseason.
And one of their major goals
for the year, according to senior
shortstop/second baseman
Amanda Lieter, is to beat Bar-
tow and advance to the state
championship.
Now here's the good news for
softball fans: the Jackets' next
home game is actually two
games.
Wednesday the Bugs host the
Wildcats of McKeel in a rare
double-header. The first pitch of
Game 1 will be at 5:30 p.m. and
the next game will start 7:30.
And BHS softball fans will
also want to be at The Hive on
Thursday night when the JV
Baby Bugs take the field for a
solo game at 7:30 p.m.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) asks anglers to remember
their camera to participate in
the new Saltwater Ethical An-
gler Photo Contest.
All you need to do is send a
picture of you or someone else
properly releasing or handling a
saltwater fish, and you may be
featured in an upcoming FWC
publication. To be considered,
you must handle your fish using
recommended catch-and-release
techniques.
Every angler's responsibility
is to strive for 100 percent sur-
vival of released fish.




Music is the poetry of the air.
-Jean Paul Richter




Music is the mediator between
the spiritual and the sensual
life.
-Ludwig van Beethoven
***



Music is your own experience,
your thoughts, your wisdom. If
you don't live it, it won't come
out of your horn.
-Charlie Parker
s**


An ethical angler handles his
catch with wet hands only, is
careful not to poke fingers into
gills, and fully supports the body
weight of the fish by cradling it
horizontally.
Large fish should not be taken
aboard a boat, because removing
it from the water can injure the
fish.
Contest guidelines and a
catch-and-release brochure that
describes techniques to increase
survival of released fish can be
found at MyFWC.com/marine.
Ethical angling photographs
may be submitted to Ethica-
1Angler@MyFWC.com.

Scholars i
Awards
Students who receive aca-
demic scholarships to Southeast-
ern University will get a nice
surprise when the 2007-08 aca-
demic year begins in August.
Those students will see their
scholarship awards increase by
as much as 29 percent, said ad-
mission director Omar Rashed.
The President's Award, which
is awarded to students who
maintain at least a 3.9 grade
point average, will increase to
3,000 annually, a 20 percent in-
crease from the $2,500 awarded
this year to recipients.
The Dean's Award, given to
students who maintain at least a
3.75 GPA, will increase to $2,250
annually, a 29 percent increase
from the $1,750 currently
awarded.
The Southeastern Scholars
Award also will increase 20 per-
cent to $1,500 annually, up from
the $1,250 awarded this year.
Students who receive this award
must maintain at least a 3.5
GPA.
The increases came as the re-
sult of additional funds being
budgeted through the universi-
ty's operating budget, Rashed
said.
During the 2006-07 academic
year, more than 900 students
have received more than $1.4
million in academic scholarship
awards.

Rain Barrel Sale March 10


Polk County Extension Serv-
ice Florida Yards and Neighbor-
hoods program is coordinating a
rain barrel activity at Spring Ob-
session, Saturday, March 10, at
Munn Park in downtown Lake-
land with nine local schools.
Rain barrels have been
painted by students from Lake-
land Christian School, Rochelle
School of the Arts, Lincoln Ave-
nue Academy, Lawton Chiles
Middle School, Scott Lake Ele-
mentary, St. Anthony Catholic
School, Dixieland Elementary,
North Lakeland Elementary and
McKeel Academy of Technology.
The rain barrels will be en-
tered into a contest for each age
group and ribbons will be
awarded. The painted barrels
will be on display and for sale to
the public. The cost for the
painted rain barrels are $50
each. All of the proceeds from
the barrel sales go back to the
teachers for additional water
conservation projects.


Rain barrels are devices used
to catch rainwater off of the robf
of a building for irrigation and
other outdoor uses. This project
is funded through a youth educa-
tion grant from the Southwest
Florida Water Management dis-
trict.
The event will be from 9 a.m.
until 4 p.m.
Florida Yards and Neighbor-
hoods is partially funded
through grants from the Alafia
River, Hillsborough Rive, and
Peace River Basin Boards of the
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District, the University
of Florida and Polk County.
The program emphasizes cre-
ating and maintaining attractive
landscapes to enhance the com-
munity and protect Florida's
valuable natural resources.

Icy Habitat Disappearing


Polar Bears in Trouble


The beautiful, powerful polar bear
is in danger. Polar bears spend most of
their lives on floating ice in the sea.
But that ice is melting, and polar
bears have nowhere else to go.
In December, the U.S. Fish &
Wildlife Service recommended that
the government list the polar bear as
"threatened." This would give more
protection to polar bears and their
habitat.
Habitat
Polar bears can live only in places
where the sea is covered with ice most
of the year. Their home is in the north,
the Arctic.
There are about 20,000 to 25,000
polar bears in the world. More than
three-quarters of them live in North
America. There are five main polar
bear groups, spread across the cold
areas in northern Alaska, Canada,
Greenland, Norway and Russia.


Most polar bears stay on sea ice all year,
spending only short periods on land.
Scientists say there has been more ice
melt than normal in the last 15 years. In
the last six years, the melting has speeded
up even more.


The importance of ice
Bears do most of their hunting from
ice close to, or attached to, the shoreline.
There has been ice near the land for
hundreds of years.
Now, however, much of the ice is far
from land. It can be 200 miles out during
the summer. But polar bears can swim
only about 60 miles a day. They cannot
swim.in high waves for much longer.
Many bears are drowning before they
can reach the next ice floe.
In one of the top polar bear habitats
in Canada, scientists have found that
the ice is melting four weeks earlier
than it did 20 years ago.
This means there is less time for
bears to hunt. They are not getting
enough to eat. Bears in this area have
been losing weight they need.


Most experts
S" ... believe global
t warming is the
reason polar bears
are in trouble. The
I ice they live on is
melting.
Scientists estimate
that there will be
::- no ice left in the
Arctic within 35
years. A few polar
bears would
probably survive
for a while longer,
in zoos or in the
wild. But experts
are afraid polar
bears could
S. completely
disappear within
100 years.

The polar bear's average body size
is also down. Scientists are seeing the
same problems in other areas as well.
Polar bears are running out of icy
places to live and hunt.


i
Females are now having fewer cubs. There
are about one-quarter fewer polar bears
than normal in their Canadian habitat.

How to Help Polar Bears


The Mini Page talked to experts
from the San Diego Zoo and Polar
Bears International, an
environmental group doing research
on ways to protect polar bears.
These experts say people can do a
lot to change things for the better.
People have saved other animals in
danger in the past. For example, the
bald eagle was once
endangered. Today it
is doing well. Experts
tell us this happened
because people cared
C enough to take action.
Much of our energy comes from
fuels such as oil and gas. When
these fuels are burned, they can give
off carbon dioxide. Experts believe
this gas increases global warming.
Whatever people do to save
energy helps stop global warming.
Here are some things you can do to
help the polar bears and other
animals right now:
Replace the regular lightbulbs
in your house with
energy-saving
lightbulbs. This will
help save your family
money, too.


& Turn off the lights
when you leave a room.
Turn
off your
computer
when you
are not using it. This
will help save some
money too, because computers cost
12 to 20 cents per hour to operate.
Turn off the TV. Don't wander
off and forget about it. It costs about
20 cents an hour to run the TV. Turn
( off your stereo
Sand video
player, too.


This polar bear
basks in the
sun. The polar
bears' ice may
be melting
because of
global
warming.







Recycle. Making products
requires energy, or fuel.
If your family recycles
aluminum cans, glass
bottles, plastic and
cardboard, you can
reduce the carbon
dioxide going into the atmosphere by
about 850 pounds a year.
Take your bike or walk to school
at least two days a week. If you do
this, rather than catching a ride, you
can lower the
carbon dioxide
going into the air
by about 1,600
pounds a year.

The M ini ?agte Standards Spotlight:
The *ay Ti ,=oPolar Bears in Trouble
Distibuted by Unrversal Press Syndicate
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 the characteristics and life cycles of organisms. (Science: Life
Science)
Students understand the interactions of animals and their environments. (Science: Life
Science)
Activities:
1. Make a series of polar bear trading cards. Use 3-by-5-inch cards. Draw pictures of polar
bears on one side of the cards. Put interesting facts about them on the other side.
2. Make a collage of newspaper words and pictures of animals you associate with cold
weather or cold places.
3. Talk with a group of friends about problems polar bears have. Make a list of three
things you could do to help polar bears.
4. How do each of these characteristics help polar bears: (a) blubber, (b) webbed forepaws,
(c) small ears, and (d) black skin?
5. Use resource books and the Internet to learn more about other animals whose lives and
habitats are threatened by global warming. Use these questions to guide your research:
What animal would you like to investigate? How big is this animal's population today?
Where does the animal live? How is its habitat threatened? What are people doing to
help save it? Write several paragraphs discussing your findings.
(standards by Dr. Sherrye D. Garrett, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi)

Meet Freddie Highmore
Freddie Highmore, 15, plays Arthur in the
movie "Arthur and the Invisibles." This movie
combines live actors with animated characters.
Freddie (or Alfred) grew up in London. He has
already appeared in several movies. His mother
is a talent agent, and his father is also an actor.
Freddie acted with his dad in the TV movie
"Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story." He has
also acted with his older brother, Bertie.
Freddie began acting in small parts on TV shows when he was
7. He played Peter in "Finding Neverland." Actor Johnny Depp
was so impressed with Freddie's acting in the movie that he asked
him to take the role of Charlie Bucket in "Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory."
Freddie enjoys soccer and video games and plays the clarinet.
He is learning to play the guitar. He has decided that he does not
want to be an actor when he grows up.

More About Polar Bears


Polar bear bodies
Polar bears are specially made for
life in cold sea areas. They are better
suited for swimming or walking on
the ice than for walking on land.
Polar bears depend on the fat
from the young seals they eat. Land
animals do not have enough fat to
keep the bears alive.
Polar bears have lots of blubber
and air in their bodies, which helps
keep them warm and helps them
float. Their fur is'made of hollow
tubes of hair filled with air.
Polar bears have clear hairs with
shiny surfaces. Since the hairs
reflect light, the bears look white to
us. The white-looking hair helps
camouflage the bear, or helps it
b~-ed in with its surroundings.
T e bears have black skin that
also aosorbs the heat of the sun. The
icOtomr layer of their hairs is oily
ano water-resistant.
heir short snout, small
tail and small ears help /
prevent heat loss by leaving less
body surface area exposed to the cold.
Folar bear paws, which can be 12
inches wide, give them great traction
on the ice. These huge paws spread
their weight across more area. This
helps them walk across thinner ice
than a human could.


Polar bears' front legs make good paddles.
Their forepaws are partially webbed to
help them swim. They have an excellent
sense of smell and sharp eyesight and
hearing.
The Mini Page thanks Carmi Penny, curator
of mammals, San Diego Zoo; and Robert
Buchanan, Polar Bears International, for
help with this issue.


Cubs
Polar bear mothers build dens in
the fall. These dens are usually about
the size of a phone booth. They are
often in snowbanks near streams or
by steep slopes. Bears living farthest
north may build dens on the ice.
Mother polar bears go into a deep
sleep. This is not hibernation. They
wake up to care for their cubs.
Mother bears start coming out of
their dens to
hunt around
March. They
have been
living on their
body fat, and may not have had
anything to eat for about nine
months. They need to get food fast to
survive and help their cubs.
If there is not enough nearby ice to
hunt from, the mother may have to
swim to new areas. She may have to
abandon her cubs to search for food.
In the last few years, scientists
have been seeing disturbing
behavior. Male bears have been
hunting females and cubs for food.
This is another sign polar bears are
not able to hunt for enough food.

Look through your newspaper for stories
about the outdoors in winter.
Next week read all about how newspapers
work.


Mother bears have one
or two cubs each time.
-:.. Newborn bears are
about the size of a
guinea pig.
The babies are born
around December or
S 7. January, and stay in
the den until around
SMarch or April. Cubs
stay with their mothers
for about two years.





Fixing the problem
Experts believe it is young people
who will make the difference and
help save the environment. Kids
today may invent technology that
does not pollute. They could find new
ways to save resources. There is a
great deal of hope that people can fix
this problem.
Scientists are trying to find ways
to help polar bears. The bears can't
move any farther north, because
they are already at the far north of
the planet. Scientists are searching
in the Arctic for pockets where ice
may stay, and polar bears can live.
Scientists are also running tests to
see how human activities affect polar
bears. For example, they are testing
to see whether oil drilling equipment
hurts a bear's hearing.
Zoos are keeping small numbers of
polar bears safe. People can learn
about them in zoos.
Seals are a polar
bear's main food.
S The bear sits by a
seal's breathing
hole on the ice
for hours, waiting
for a seal to pop
Sout of the hole.
