Youth Fair Celebrates 60 Years; Opens Saturday


Polk County's 60th annual
Youth Fair will be held on March
10-16 at the Polk County
Agricultural Center, fondly know
as the Cow Palace, on U.S. Hwy.
17 in Bartow.
.The first fair was held on Nov.
7, 1947. The idea for the fair was
initiated by W. Paul Hayman, who
at that time was a Polk County
agricultural agent.
Hayman need help with the 4-
H programs, and so he hired
Harper Kendrick, who was teach-
ing vocational agriculture at
Bartow High School, to direct
these 4-H and related programs.
Grover Howell was then
employed to take Kendrick's posi-
tion at the school. It was from this
group, that the idea of a Polk
county Youth Fair arose and
developed.
Hayman spoke to Bill Pamplin,
the Rotary Club president at the
time, and Howell did the same
with Loyal Frisbie, a Rotarian
and editor of The Polk County
Democrat. They brought the idea
to the Rotary Club, in hopes the
club would sponsor the project.
. The interest in the fair was so
widespread, that the first fair was


held at Hughes Field Armory on
North Broadway in Bartow, and a
Polk County Youth Fair
Association was created to spon-
sor the second annual fair. The
second fair was held on Dec. 3 and
4, 1948, in the unfinished live-
stock pavilion.
This year, events will begin on
Saturday, March 10, at 8:30 a.m.

38 Homes on Septic Tanks


Approved

With one dissenting vote,
Bartow zoning board, members
voted. to recommend to the city
commission approval of a 38-
home. subdivision on Gandy Road
which will be served by septic
-tanks.
Winding River Cove, to be built
between Units 1 and 2 of Peace
RiHer-:Estates, will be a half-mile
west of Gandy Cemetery Road in
the Connersville community. The
land was annexed into the city
limits last year.
The zoning board's action was
to recommend that the city com-
mission approve the preliminary
subdivision plat.
Winding River Cove will have
a half-acre "common area" for res-
idents, Planning Dir. Robert
Wiegers told the board.
SPolice and fire protection
response to Connersville will
improve as development of the
area continues, Wiegers said.
*'"Things get done as growth
happens," he said.
-"I'm trying not to get beat over
the head" on the issue of emer-
gency services to the area.
Zoning Board Chm. Michael J.
Marchman asked if water pres-
sure is adequate in the area. Bill
Fritze, engineer for the developer,
said water pressure should
improve because "a strong water
loop" will be created when the
subdivision is built.
SZoning Board Member Bo
Raulerson said that Gandy Road
is inadequate to handle the cur-
rent traffic, and asked if any pro-
vision has been made to widen it.
Noting that Gandy Road is a
county road, Wiegers said that
the developer "will be required to
makPl intersection improve-
menits


by Zoning Board


"I expect us to do a small
widening of the road; not big,"
Fritze told the board.
"I hope we don't talk about sep-
tic tanks," he added.
Zoning Board Member Susan
Brewer asked, "How is this in the
best interests of Bartow?"
"I believe this area is going to
boom some day," Fritze replied,
adding that the subdivision is
being built on 'land presently
occupied by "an ineffective orange
grove."
SHe said the subdivision will
bring more water customers to
the city's utility system.
"It's not the most special place
on this earth, but it will be nice.
This is not Highland Homes,"
Fritze said.
Raulerson asked if the devel-
oper would install "dry lines,"
sewer lines to be connected to
Bartow's sewer system if it is ever
extended to the area.
Wiegers replied that it would
not, and that he didn't believe the
city will extend sewer service to
within a quarter-mile to a half-
mile of the development. The
nearest sewer line will probably
be on Gandy Cemetery Road, he
said.
Fritze said it would cost about
$5,000 per home to install "dry
lines" in the subdivision, plus the
cost of a pump station.
Kay Blocker, whose home is
next to the subdivision, expressed
concerns about septic tanks, and
noted that more developments
are planned in the area.
Raulerson expressed concern
about the city's approval of more
and more developments served by
septic tanks in the Connersville
area.
"The city commission has said


it doesn't want more septic
tanks," Wiegers said.
Jim Sacarello, developer of
Winding River Cove, said that the
two units of Peace River Estates
that flank his subdivision are on
septic tanks.
"I enjoy the low cost of septic
tanks," he added.
"We're drinking that water,"
Raulerson replied.
He moved that approval of the
plat be conditioned on installa-
tion of "dry lines," and his motion
died for lack of a second.
Mrs. Brewer's motion to recom-
mend approval of the plat passed
by a 3-to-1 vote, with Marchman
and Board Member Drew Guffey
voting for it, and Raulerson vot-
ing "no."
Wiegers said the city commis-
sion will consider the plat at its
meeting tonight.
The board also recommended
that the commission approve a
land use designation of "low den-
sity residential" and zoning of R-1
(single family residential) on two
adjoining parcels of land on Lyle
Parkway, an eighth-of-a-mile east
of E.F. Griffin Road.
The parcel fronting on Lyle
Parkway, owned by Alan
Mashraghi, is 9.9 acres, and the
parcel just south of it, owned by
Ana Barcelo Gonzalez, is 7.9
acres.
The board voted unanimously
to recommend approval of the
land use and zoning.
Wiegers distributed to the zon-
ing board members three articles
on alternative approaches to zon-
ing and land use planning.
"The two most obnoxious terms
in zoning are 'sprawl' and 'densi-
ty.' You're either one or the other,"
he said.


Bartow city commissioners will
hold a public hearing tonight on
creation of the city's first
Community Development
District.
A CDD is a special agency of
local government with the
authority to impose taxes to build
streets and other infrastructure
within the defined community.
This CDD, to be called the
Saddle Creek Community
Development District, would be
for property in the Silver
Companies "active adult commu-
nity" to be developed north of
town between U.S. Highway 98
and E.F. Griffin Road.
The budget for the proposed
CDD is $54.12 million, to pay for
roads, street lights, water and
sewer facilities, storm drainage,
landscaping, amenities, and engi-
neering and project management.
Unlike most city ordinances,
which come up for a public hear-
ing only on second (final) reading,
a public hearing on the CDD ordi-


nance will be held on first reading
tonight, and again on second
reading.
The commission will meet for a
work session at 5:30 p.m. at city
hall, and will reconvene for its
regular business meeting at 6:30.
Other items on the agenda:
Discussion of.appointments
to the Mayor's Youth Council and
the beautification advisory board.:
Recognition of 10 police offi-
cers and a dispatcher for their
part in arresting two suspects in
the robbery of Mid-Florida Credit

Before turning to writing full
time, Atkins worked as a crime
reporter for The Tampa Tribune,
earning a Pulitzer Prize nomina-
tion for his seven-part series on
the 1955 unsolved murder of
Tampa gambling king pin Char-
lie Wall.
Atkins wrote two crime novels
set in the South, "Crossroad
Blues: A Nick Travers Mystery"
(1998) and "Leavin' Trunk
Blues" (2001) while working as a
reporter.
Commercial success as a nov-
elist and an offer to become a
visiting journalism professor at
the University of Mississippi
convinced him to concentrate on
writing full time.


Polk Museum of Art has been
awarded a Challenge America
Grant by the National Endow-
ment for the Arts.
The grant is being used to
fund a series of events called
Dialogues with Artists that will
include lectures, performances,
and community outreach pro-
grams.
"Receiving a grant from the
NEA is a prestigious honor for
us," said Daniel E. Stetson, ex-
ecutive director of Polk Museum
of Art.,
"It shows that we are provid-
ing nationally important educa-
tional opportunities for the com-
munity and allows us to expand
those offerings."
"We're going to be able to
bring in artists and speakers
that we otherwise would not
have," said Rebecca Sexton Lar-
son, curator of education. "And
we're also going to be able to
take some programs outside of
the Museum."
The Challenge America Grant
is a $10,000 matching funds
grant, which will be matched by
more than $10,000 for these spe-
cial educational programs.
It will be used for the Dia-
logues with Artists series which
will bring in speakers and an
artist for two exhibitions: Ansel
Adams: Celebration of Genius
and Kickin' It With Joyce J.
Scott. It will also be used to help


fund art education programs and
projects with Davenport School
of the Arts (for Ansel Adams)
and with three Teen Parent -
Creative Parenting and Play pro-
grams (for Joyce J. Scott).
For Ansel Adams: Celebration
of Genius, John Szarkowski, for-
mer director of the Photography
Department at the Museum of
Modern Art in New York, visited
Polk Museum of Art to speak
about Adams and his work.
More than 60 students from
Lakeland High School and Har-
rison School of the Arts were in-
vited to a private lecture and
gallery tour with Szarkowski on
Feb. 2. That evening, he spoke to
a crowd of more than 300 com-
munity members at the mem-
bers' celebration opening recep-
tion.
On Feb. 16, students from
Davenport School of the Arts
had the opportunity to have a
special guided tour of Ansel Ad-
ams: Celebration of Genius. On
March 17, the same students
will participate in a community
photography project with guest
photographer Reiner Munguia.
The students will learn how to
light and photograph the land-
scape with their digital cameras
and will then go on a photo shoot
at a location in a nearby neigh-
borhood.
Dialogues with Artists will
continue with the exhibition

Kickin' It With Joyce J. Scott.
- On Friday, April 13, artist
Scott will talk about her work at
the members' celebration open-
ing reception for her national
touring exhibition.
Scott is one of the most promi-
nent African-American artists in
the country, Larson said. Her
work focuses on the traditional
crafts of beadwork and quilting,
and is best known for its biting
and often humorous examina-
tions of racism, violence, sexism
and stereotypes.
She also is an experienced
and enthusiastic performance
artist.
On Saturday, April 14, the se-
ries will continue with a day-
long discussion of Scott's work,
the centerpiece of which will be a
special performance artwork by
Scott.
Dr. Leslie King-Hammond,
dean of graduate studies at the
Maryland Institute,' College of
Art, will discuss Scott's work
within the context of African-
American Art.
An outreach component of the
grant will include students from
three Polk County Teen Parent
programs who will visit the Mu-
seum to tour Kickin' It With
Joyce J. Scott.

Editorial


It is traditional in government circles -
both military and civilian that when a
problem is discovered that is so egregious
that heads must roll, the discipline usually
takes place somewhere way down the food
chain.
Often, this is the appropriate response.
When it is the first echelon supervisor, or
in the military equivalent, the squad or
platoon leader, whose judgment is
abysmally flawed, it makes sense that his
is the head that should roll.
But if the bad judgment was known, and
tacitly condoned, at higher echelons, it
stands to reason that others must be held
to answer.
The Washington Post in an investiga-
tion that one pro-military organization
harrumphed was not authorized by the
Army exposed appalling conditions at
the Army's premier medical facility, Walter
Reed Army Medical Center in Washington,
D.C.
More than in any previous war, wound-
ed soldiers from the war in Iraq and
Afghanistan are surviving grievous battle-
field trauma. Part of the survivability is
due to improved body armor; part is a
reflection of the unprecedented level of
medical care, from the battlefield to hospi-
tals in theater to facilities like Walter Reed.
But at Walter Reed, The Post found
buildings infested by rodents and cock-
roaches. The substandard conditions had
even been reported by members of
Congress.
For some inexplicable reason, two con-
secutive hospital commanders failed to
exhibit any initiative to correct the situa-
tion. And that is unacceptable.
Last week, the two-star general who
commanded Walter Reed Maj. Gen.
George Weightman was fired. But the
man selected as his replacement, a three-
star general Lt. Gen. Kevin Kiley was
the commander who preceded him in that


job. By all accounts, Kiley also was aware
of squalid conditions at the hospital on his
watch..
On Friday, Secretary of the Army Francis
Harvey was fired for that incredibly poor
exercise of judgment. Whether or not
Harvey personally made the decision to
put Kiley back in charge, it was an issue of
such importance to America's soldiers, and
to the nation, that he could not escape
responsibility for it:
The decision to fire Harvey was made by
Defense Secretary Robert Gates, a recent
appointee whose initiative, already had
won him admiration.
It was a proper decision.
In a masterpiece of understatement,
Gates expressed concern that "some do not
properly understand the need to commu-
nicate to the wounded and their families
that we have no higher priority than their
care. Our wounded soldiers and their fam-
ilies have sacrificed much, and they
deserve the best we can offer."
His action put meaning in his words.
The accountability rests at the highest
levels of the Army.
Smart money says that conditions at
Walter Reed will improve dramatically
and rapidly.
Our wounded soldiers and our nation
- are entitled to nothing less.

accomplishment, especially
when you do them in ink, there
is the latter day research that
shows that such mental exercises
stave off the onset of dementia.
That was a good enough reason
for me.
Then came a new game called
Sudoku.
It's like a crossword puzzle
with numbers. And when I say
that, I have exhausted my
understanding of Sudoku.
Truth be known, I have to
check to see where the U's and
O's come in the word. They're
almost interchangeable.
SOur family has a math gene; It
is passed down through the
females. Our daughters are math
whizzes, as is my wife; my son
and I have to get by on charm.
Mary is a big fan of Sudoku. I
read the comics; she does the
Sudoku puzzles.
She has books and computer
programs filled with Sudoku
puzzles.
If I can balance my check-
book, I consider myself an.over-
achiever.
Sunday night, I found a
Sudoku puzzle called
"Universal Sudoku Kids" in The


Tribune. It was color-coded to
help you figure it out, and the
instructions even gave you a
hint what number to put in a cir-
cle in one of the 36 squares. Of
the 36 squares, 12 already had.
the numbers filled in, and the
circle hint was a gimme.
It was basically written for
six-year-olds, which gave me a
60-year advantage.
It wasn't enough.
The object of the puzzle is to
fill in six digits on each row, and:
in blocks of six squares, using,
each digit only once.
It's a little like tic-tac-toe, but
with more than just X's and O's.
I struggled with it for a few
minutes using a pencil, not a
pen and made little progress.
Mary announced that it was
time for supper ravioli and
I guess that must be brain food.
After having a raviolum or
two, I 'returned to Stdoku-fbr-
Toddlers, and actually solved
that bad boy.
Am I hooked?
Not on your tintype, Clyde.
I am one for one on Sudoku
puzzles.
I'm quittin' while I'm ahead.

OUR READERS SAY

USF Lakeland Realizes a Dream


LAKELAND When I was
asked by USF President Judy
Genshaft to make a move from
California's fabled. "Silicon
Valley" to Florida's heartland, I
came because of my faith in the
president's vision for the
University of South Florida and
her belief in the potential of USF
Lakeland to 'help transform the
communities it serves.
I shared that vision immedi-
ately, and realized that one of my
roles at USF Lakeland was to play
a part in bringing the creativity,
innovation and .entrepreneurial
spirit from one side of the coun-
try to another.
However, another visionary
leader also had already done that,
making my work here at USF
Lakeland a genuine pleasure.
That person is state Senator JD
Alexander. While many around
the state have been satisfied to
funnel funding for education to
the coasts and traditional centers

comes letters from its

signed, and the writer's'
name will appear with

length and libel. No
poems, please.


of influence, Senator Alexander
has been a forceful voice for
investment in communities such
as those that we serve in Polk,
Highlands and Hardee Counties.
In addition, Senator Alexander
understands our role as a player
in the .Tampa Bay Region and
along the high tech corridor.
Early in his legislative career, he
established education as his
trademark cause, and our com-
munities are infinitely better
because of that commitment.
Earlier this week Polk
Community College and USF
hosted hundreds of important
guests at a ceremony marking the
opening of the new Lakeland
Technology Building on our
shared Lakeland campus. That
building represents a vital step in
the ongoing transformation of


USF Lakeland from a mere "satel-
lite" campus into a 'thriving poly-
technic campus that will draw
students from across our region
and beyond.
That building would not have
been built without the leadership
and vision of Senator Alexander,
and the new USF Lakeland cam-
pus on I-4 at the Polk Parkway is
equally dependent on his com-
mitment in Tallahassee.
On behalf of USF Lakeland, I
thank all of those in our commu-
nity elected officials, civic and
business leaders, donors and oth-
ers who have shared our aspira-
tions who have already
endorsed Senator Alexarder's
dream.

REPORTER'S CORNER / By PAUL LEVASSEUR

The Grass Wasn't Greener After All


I've heard people say, "The
third time is a charm."
This is true. This is my third
time employed by Frisbie
Publishing Co., now Sun Coast
Media Group, Inc. and this time
has been a "charm."
Let me introduce myself. I am
.the pressroom supervisor of the
Polk County Print Center of Sun
Coast, otherwise known as The
Polk County Democrat, The Fort
Meade Leader, The Lake Wales
News, and Polk County Times.
This is my third time being part


of this team.
Time one, I left on a mutual
agreement. I thought I was
smarter than the publisher; boy
was I wrong.
Here's some advice kids:
Never think you know more than
the man who owns his own busi-
ness and signs your paycheck,
and never think you are the only
one who can fill the position and
that you cannot be replaced.
I think I was absent for a good
month-and-a-half when I realized
I should apologize for my poor
judgment. It was a great learning
experience and humbled me
quite a bit.
Time two, I went out on a limb.
I wanted to live my dream and
work in law enforcement of any
kind. Detention officer was my
choice. I figured it would keep
me off the street on busy, hot
nights in June when it's just me
against the bad guy.
The detention center was
inside, air conditioned, and how
hard could it be? Well, it should-
n't be a hard job. I would work at
night. Everybody would be
asleep (yeah 'right). I wouldn't
have to do much as far report
writing, filing, or physical exer-
tion (what was I thinking?).
I worked in intake, master con-
trol, and several "modules" and
believe me, not everybody was in
la-la land. Some clients wanted to
make my dream as miserable as
they could, and some did.
The one thing 1 did learn is, the
grass is not greener on the other
side of the fence. I think it was


that same publisher who men-
tioned that in conversation.
Thanks S. L., will I ever learn?
Yes,.I am back to the right side
of the fence, where the grass hap-
pens to taste and look better.
Things are different now. We are
now part of a large company. We
have 25 or so people working on
our team and we keep track of
everything we do.
I am very, happy I chose to
make the transition back here at
The Democrat, with the team I
worked with for several years
before. A lot has changed since I
was living my "dream." We now
print full color. Our presshas
four black-and-white units and
two color units that are stacked.
And now I am typing from my
desk on a computer, yes kids, nly
very own computer.
I have been back for five
months and I'm happy to be part
of this huge family. It's been a
learning experience, and yes you
can teach an "ole dog" new
tricks.
There are several people I have
to thank, there are too many to
name, and the producer is telling
me it's time for a commercial.
Thanks to everyone. You know
who you are.
(Editor's note: Ihis feature is
called "Reporter's Corner," because
articles typically are written Ib
timembers of our news staff whlo have
an editorial itclh /1t needs scratch-
ingl,. Pa1 l l tev'asse01r, our p'ressroom.)I
supCrviso', hadt a similar' itch, an1d
this seemed the best place to scratcli
it. s/f,iv)


For most of my life, cross-
word puzzles haven't held that
much fascination for me.
Instead of holding a real job, I
write for a living. This mainly
involves putting a noun and a
verb between two dots. If
enough people enjoy your
efforts, you get paid for it.
Life is good.
Crossword puzzles introduce
an element of labor into word-
smithing. When you write, you
can sort of fake it; close, they say,
only counts in horseshoes and
hand grenades. Close also works
in writing.
Crossword puzzles are unfor-
giving. One wrong word and
you're in the soup. Close doesn't
count.
In the last year or so of Dad's
life, I got interested in crossword
puzzles. He liked for me to visit
him every night. It wasn't neces-
sary for us to talk; merely sitting
together a few feet apart was a
fulfilling experiencefor both of
us.
Crossword puzzles were a
lifetime form of entertainment
for him, and'in my early 60s, I
found the fascination.

the Museum."
The Challenge America Grant
is a $10,000 matching funds
grant, which will be matched by
more than $10,000 for these spe-
cial educational programs.
It will be used for the Dia-
logues with Artists series which
will bring in speakers and an
artist for two exhibitions: Ansel
Adams: Celebration of Genius
and Kickin' It With Joyce J.
Scott. It will also be used to help
fund art education programs and
projects with Davenport School
of the Arts (for Ansel Adams)
and with three Teen Parent -
Creative Parenting and Play pro-
grams (for Joyce J. Scott).
* For Ansel Adams: Celebration
of Genius, John Szarkowski, for-
mer director of the Photography
Department at the Museum of
Modern Art in New York, visited
Polk Museum of Art to speak
about Adams and his work.
More than 60 students from
Lakeland High School and Har-
rison School of the Arts were in-


vited to a private lecture and
gallery tour with Szarkowski on
Feb. 2. That evening, he spoke to
a crowd of more than 300 com-
munity members at the mem-
bers' celebration opening recep-
tion.
On Feb. 16. students from
Davenport School of the Arts
had the opportunity to have a
special guided tour of Ansel Ad
ams: Celebration of Genius. On
March 17,' the same students
will participate in a community
photography project with guest
photographer Reiner Munguia.
The students will learn how to
light and photograph the land-
scape with their digital cameras
and will then go on a photo shoot
at a location in a nearby neigh-
borhood.
Dialogues with Artists will
continue with the exhibition
Kickin' It With Joyce J. Scott.
On Friday, April 13, artist
Scott will talk about her work at
the members' celebration open-
ing reception for her national
touring exhibition.
Scott is one of the most promi-
nent African-American artists in
the country, Larson said. Her
work focuses on the traditional
crafts of beadwork and quilting,
and is best known for its biting
and often humorous examina-
tions of racism, violence, sexism
and stereotypes.
She also is an experienced
and enthusiastic performance
artist.
On Saturday, April 14, the se-
ries will continue with a day-
long discussion of Scott's work,
the centerpiece of which will be a
special performance artwork by
Scott.
Dr. Leslie King-Hammond,
dean of graduate studies at the
Maryland Institute, College of
Art, will discuss Scott's work
within the context of African-
American Art.


MR. AND MISS BHS for next school year are Ervin Goad and
Rebecca Berry. They were selected on Feb. 24, along with the calen-
dar couples. First runners-up were John Mahoney and Monica
Bhutiani; second runners-up were Mark Keeley and Breanne

Business & Finance
Two Attorneys Join


Polk Clerk Receives Two

Financial Reporting Awards


Former County Commissioner
Paul Senft presented two awards
to Richard M. Weiss, accountant,
auditor and clerk to the Polk
board of county commissioners at
the Feb. 28 meeting.
The certificate of achievement
for excellence in financial report-
ing (CAFR) and the award for
outstanding achievement in pop-
ular annual financial reporting
(PAFR) for Polk County for the
fiscal year ending Sept. 30, were
awarded to Polk County by the
Government Finance Officers
Association of the United States
and Canada (GFOA) for its com-
prehensive annual financial
report (CAFR).


This is the highest form of
recognition in the area of govern-
mental accounting and financial
reporting.
An impartial panel judged the
CAFR and determined it met the
high program standards, includ-
ing demonstrating a constructive
"spirit of full disclosure" to clear-
ly communicate its financial story
and motivate potential users and
user groups to read the CAFR.
Polk County has earned this
certificate of achievement for 26
consecutive years.
The award for outstanding
achievement in popular annual
financial reporting is a widely-
respected national award that


recognizes conformance with the
highest standards for preparation
of state and local government
popular reports.
In order to receive an award
for outstanding achievement in
popular annual financial report-
ing, government units must pub-
lish a popular annual financial
report with contents conforming
to program standards of creativi-
ty, presentation, understandabili-
ty and reader appeal.
This is the fifth year Polk
County earned this award.
Richard Weiss' office is primar-
ily responsible for preparing the
award-winning CAFR and PAFR.

Yummy And Healthy Snacks For Kids


HAVE A HEART. Watson Clinic's radiology puted tomography (CT) imaging system. (Photo

Watson Clinic Offers' VCT Imaging


Watson Clinic's radiology
department has acquired a
LightSpeed VCT computed
tomography (CT) imaging sys-
tem.
This state-of-the-art "64-slice
CT scanner" produces clear
images of the human body and
can be used to non-invasively
detect disorders of the spine,
head, abdomen and chest.
Watson Clinic's cardiology
department, in particular, will
benefit from the clear and
detailed' imagery unrivaled by


those produced from previous CT
scanner models, leading to earli-
er detection of heart disease.
"We are proud to be the first
clinic in Polk County to offer this
new technology," says Richard.
Gould, director of Watson Clinic's
radiology equipment. "Patients
no longer need to leave the area
as this technology is now at their
fingertips."
The anatomical imagery can
be examined in 64 thin cross-sec-
tions, or "slices," which provide
physicians with a better under-


standing of the exact location of a
problem area.
In addition to the enhanced
quality, the system also produces
its images in a fraction of the
time previously required.
In vascular applications, the
system provides the imagery nec-
essary to perform complex vessel
analysis, including stenosis
assessment of calcified and non-
calcified plaque densities,
pre/post stent planning and vas-
cular surgery follow-up.
Results from scans are typical-
ly made available within 24
hours and all files are stored in
digital Picture Archiving
Computer Storage (PACS) for
access.


American Institute
for Cancer Research
These days, most kids are
encouraged to participate on
sports teams, which, in itself, is
a good thing.
But many "sports treats"
wipe out any benefit from the
exercise, since too often, ready-
made "treats" are too full of
sugars and fats.
Even so-cqlled "healthy"
sports bars can be poor nutri-
tional bargains, but expensive
in many other ways.
One great solution is to
make the snack yourself. The
other kids will love the idea of
something new and, if you
involve your own children in
the cooking process,. they'll
have something to brag about
as well as share.
By making a snack with your
children, you are achieving four
goals: providing a nutritious
yet delicious treat, teaching
them some new skills that are
fun, help them learn about
healthy foods, and having qual-
ity parent-child time.
Helping with cooking, even if
it's this simple Sweet and Salty
Crunchy Mix, gives children a
sense of power in their ability
to "cook."
Another way to let them take
charge is giving them choices
about which ingredients to use,
say, between walnuts or
almonds, dried raisins or cran-
berries.
This also is a good opportuni-
ty for nutrition lessons that
unfold as part of an ordinary
conversation, not a preachy ser-
mon.
Even if you only impart one
piece of new information
"Turmeric and other spices help
fight infections" your child will
be one fact smarter about nutri-
tion. Another lesson might be
that different fruits contain dif-
ferent types of health-promot-
ing substances so the greater
the variety, the wider the mix of
-protective benefits.
Measuring tile snack into


individual bags illustrates, serv-
ings and portion sizes. But
remember: too much informa-
tion can lead to overload, so
keep the messages sound-bite
brief.
Sweet and Salty
Crunchy Mix
Canola oil spray
2 cups cereal, preferably
whole grain, e.g., old-fashioned
rolled oats, puffed whole wheat
or brown rice, or low-fat gra-
nola
2 cups thin pretzels (prefer-
ably salt-free), broken into
small pieces
1/2 cup walnuts or almonds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp. turmeric
2 cups mixed dried fruit
(preferably unsweetened), e.g.
raisins, berries, apples, dates,
etc.
1/4 1/3 cup honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
.if baking 15 to 20 minutes, and
300 degrees for slower baking
for 45 to 60 minutes. Slow bak-
ing takes more time but deep-
ens the flavor. Lightly coat bot-
tom of two baking sheets and
set aside.


In a large bowl, mix together
the cereal, pretzels, nuts and
seeds until well combined. Stir
in the turmeric until evenly dis-
tributed. Stir in the dried fruit.
In a heat-resistant measur-
ing cup, gently warm the honey
to thin its consistency in a,
microwave, or stovetop using ,
small saucepan containing hot
water. Slowly add just enough
of the honey into the cereal
mixture, stirring constantly,
until the mixture begins to
adhere and form clusters.
Spread the mixture on the
baking sheets in a thin layer.
Spray with canola oil spray.
Bake until cereal is lightly
browned, stirring once if baking,
at 350 degrees, or 3 to 4 times if
slow roasting at 300 degrees.-
Remove from oven and cool
on a rack. Serve immediately or:
store in a sealed container or in
zip-lock plastic bags.

Fort Meade Hosts Senior Games

Checker Competition for 15th Year


%War- & II


By PRISCILLA PERRY
Staff Writer
There were no beads of sweat
or cheers from the stands, but
there was a feeling of competition
in the air.
People walked quietly and
whispered so as not to disturb
serious concentration. It could
only be Senior Games checkers
competition.
The games were held at the
Fort Meade Center last Tuesday.
Matched partner against part-
ner, the scene was set as the cou-
ples locked their eyes on the
board. Red and black was the
color scheme.
Elbows were rested, fists
clinched, and fingers, nimble and
exercised, were ready to maneu-
ver each move to conquer the oppo-
nent.
Twenty-two competitors from
throughout the county arrived at
the community center ready to
spend the day doing what they
love and are good at.
They squared off and played
checkers as the elimination
process took its course. Winners
were declared by age category.
The winners in the 50-59 year-
old group were Wayne Broderick,
gold; Linda Armstrong; silver; and
Gaye Mattimore, bronze.
The 60-69 year-old category
winners were Robert Perrault,
gold; Tommy Jenkins, silver; and
Edward Cunningham, bronze.
Winners in the 70-79 year-old
group were Richard Hoar, gold; Jil
Rosenthal, silver; and Nancye
Thornberry, bronze.
The 80-89 year-old honors went
to Joe Lane, gold; Harry Morse, sil-
ver; and Chuck Gugino, bronze.
This marked the 15th year that
Fort Meade has hosted the check-

ers competition for the Polk
County Senior Games.
Deena Wilbur, executive direc-
tor of the Senior Games, was on
hand to present Dennis Guenther,
director of leisure services, and
Marcella Nelson, assistant super-
visor, with their 15-year medallion
as event managers.
"This' was the best, most orga-
nized, and well-participated tour-
nament we've ever had," Jeff Zell,
superintendent of leisure services,
said.
Senior Games is a national
sports venue that opens all areas
of competition to senior citizens 55
and older.
Polk County Senior Games
opened Feb. 24.
The closing celebration for the
2,450 competitors, 500 volunteers,
their family, and friends will be
held on Sunday, March 11, at The
Lakeland Center in the Youkey
Theater at 2 p.m.
The celebration is the only time
during the Games where partici-
pants from all sports gather


together to socialize and swap
tales of their achievements. It
will feature a parade of the com-
petitors and volunteers who
have been with the Games since
the inception in 1992.
A health fair, goody bags, sou-
venirs, pictures, and videos will
precede the awards ceremony in
the lobby of the Youkey Theater
at 1 p.m. All festivities are open
to the public and admission and
parking are free.
Awards will be presented by
Senior Games sponsors and offi-
cial representatives of partici-
pating communities. Those rec-
ognized will be the best competi-
tors by age group and also the
outstanding event managers
and volunteers.
A special award will go to the
senior community with the most
participation. Door prizes will be

JV Lady Jackets Shut Down

Ridge Community, 11-0


By MARK KING
Sports Correspondent
Bartow High School Lady
Jackets' junior varsity softball
team unhinged the Bolts of Ridge
Community High on Friday night
in an 11-0 shut-out at One Bug
Place.
The Baby Bugs got on the
board quickly in the bottom of the
first inning when lead-off hitter.
Jessica Lopez chopped a high-
bouncer over the glove of the
Ridge Community pitcher for a
base hit.
Brittany Atkinson reached on
a Bolt boo-boo then Danielle Ward
launched a rocket to centerfield
that bounced off the defender's
glove to rack the first run for
'Tow. Later, with one out, Lindsey
Martin ripped a double bagger to
right field to score two more runs.
The Ladies added another run
in the third, three more in the
fourth and four in the fifth to end
the game early. Lopez finished the
game with three base hits and


scored three times. Ward also
banged out three hits for Bartow.
Other hitters for the Bugs
included: Atkinson, Danielle
Stinson (double), Martin (two
doubles), Sami Burton, Christian
Taylor, and Kaly Flood.
Sami Burton was the winning
pitcher for the Bugs, hurling nine
strike-outs while allowing only
two base hits.
The Lady Jackets will try to
leash the Polk County Curs, also
known as the Auburndale
Bloodhounds, tonight at The
Hive.
Auburndale beat the Jackets
earlier in the season in a 5-4 12-
inning marathon, so the Bugs are
on a mission tonight. Junior var-
sity action begins at 5:30 p.m. and
the varsity's first pitch is at 7:30.
On Tuesday night, there's more
softball shenanigans as the
Haines City Hornets buzz into
the Jackets' Hive. Games are at
5:30 and 7 p.m.
On Thursday, the team travels
to Ridge Community.

Why


Is


It?


A person wakes up after sleeping

under an ADVERTISED blanket

on an ADVERTISED mattress

and pull off ADVERTISED pajamas,

bathes in an ADVERTISED shower,

shaves with an ADVERTISED razor,

brushes his or her teeth with ADVERTISED toothpaste

washes with ADVERTISED soap,

puts on ADVERTISED clothes,

drinks a cup of ADVERTISED coffee,

drives to work in an ADVERTISED car

and then...

refuses to ADVERTISE, believing that it doesn't pay.

Later, if business is poor,

the person ADVERTISES it for sale.

Bring fun to mealtime with these

tasty pizza recipes your family will

love to make and eat.



FAMILY FEATURES

F or dinner tonight, turn on the fun and try one of
these easy-to-make pizza recipes that begin with
convenient Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust. Bring
the whole family into the kitchen to make prepara-
tion a hands-on activity. Each person can add a tasty, cus-
tomized twist along the way. For example, the 4-Square
Family Pizza allows for four tailored mini masterpieces all
on one crust that bake at one time. There's also a slam dunk
idea for pleasing kids who love playing with their food.
Pizza Dipping Sticks are a hand-held version of pepperoni
pizza
in a dunkable stick. Or tap into a pizzeria trend and bake up
a Stuffed Crust Pizza. The kids will have fun helping "stuff"
the crust with string cheese. Buffalo Chicken Pizza is a top
taste pick that's baked in a rectangle for easy serving.
"Making pizza together is a great way to get dinner on the
table while having some fun as a family in the kitchen," said
Julie Hinderks, pizza recipe creator and senior test kitchen
expert; "When you start with refrigerated pizza crust dough,
it's easy to roll up your sleeves and join in from pressing
out the dough,
to adding sauce, to topping the pizza with cheese and
favorite ingredients. People will find there are countless ways
to improvise, customize and create a pizza that everyone in the
family will enjoy."

The M ini lAe Standards Spotlight:
by Uniers Sd. sc f How Newspapers Work
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 read and understand a variety of texts. (Language Arts: Reading)
Students use the structure of text to construct meaning. (Language Arts: Reading)
Activities:
1. On a large piece of paper, design a newspaper front page that shows exciting
stories and photos of you and your friends. Share your front page with your
friends.
2. Conduct a survey among family members and friends. Ask them to name the
newspaper department they would most like to work in. Have them tell you why.
Which department was most popular? Which department would you like the best?
3. Divide a piece of paper into three categories: Words/Language, Arts/Design and
Electronics/Equipment. Now look at the different newspaper jobs and departments
shown in today's Mini Page. List the jobs in the correct categories on your paper.
4. Find a newspaper story or section that would be of interest to (a) an actor, (b) a
historian, (c) a basketball player, (d) a teacher and (e) an economist.
5. Write an essay discussing the ways your local newspaper serves your community.
Be sure to include newspaper sections such as local news, entertainment, sports,
weather, business and modern lifestyles.
(standards by Dr. Sherrye D. Garrett, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi)

Meet Katherine Paterson
Katherine Paterson is the author of the 1978
Newbery Medal-wiining book "Bridge to Terabithia."
The book, which has just been made into a movie,
tells of two fifth-grade friends, Jesse and Leslie. E
Jesse is a poor farm boy who wants to be the fastest
runner in the school. Leslie is a runner, too. She and
Jessie compete. They start racing against each other
and become fast friends. The imaginary land they I
create, Terabithia, changes their lives.
Paterson, 74, grew up in China. Her parents were missionaries, and
she and her four siblings moved 18 times while she was growing up.
After graduating from college with a degree in English, she taught
sixth grade for a year. She went back to college to prepare to become a
missionary, and then was sent to Japan. J
She began writing education materials for fifth- and sixth-graders.
She then took a class in creative writing and wrote her first novel for
that course.
Paterson has since written many award-winning books, including the
Newbery Medal book "Jacob Have I Loved" and the Newbery Honor
book "The Great Gilly Hopkins."
