City To Evaluate Sites


For New Middle School


What is the best location for a
new middle school to be built
between Bartow and Winter
Haven?
Bartow city commissioners
will consider that question
tonight as they review four possi-
ble sites selected by the Polk
County school board.
Because the board's first-
ranked site is in Bartow's area
that is served by sanitary sewer
service, the city's recommenda-
tion must be considered.
The site ranked first by the
school board is on Sheffield Road,
on land owned by Clear Springs
Land Co.
The other sites, in order, are
southwest of Starr Lake; on the
southeast shore of Spirit Lake;
and north of Eagle Lake on
County Road 540.
The commission will hold a


work session this afternoon at
5:30 at city hall, and will recon-
vene for its regular business
meeting at 6:30.
Other items on the agenda:
Approval of the process for
verifying absentee ballots, and
scheduling of the canvassing
board meeting to verify the
results of the April 3 city com-
mission election.
Recognition of Herold Green
for serving five years on the
Historic Architecture Review
Board.
Designation of April as
Water Conservation Month.
Appointments to the
Historic Architecture Review
Board, the Mayor's Youth
Council, and the Beautification
Advisory Board.
Approval of a an agreement
with CLM Polk Properties to


allow temporary placement of a
modular office building.
Appointment of poll workers
for the April 3 city election.
Approval of an amendment
to the city budget.
Final reading and public
hearing on ordinances to:
(1) Create the Saddle Creek
Community Development
District.
(2) Approve the final plat of
Bridgeport Phase II subdivision.
(3) Designate two recently-
annexed parcels of land on Lyle
Parkway as "low density residen-
tial" and zone them as R-1 (single
family residential).
First reading of an ordi-
nance redefining Bartow's occu-
pational license tax as a "busi-
ness tax" and redefining the city's
occupational license as a "busi-
ness tax receipt."


Youth, Adults Form Green

Coalition; Earth Day Friday


Youth and adult service clubs
in the Bartow .community have
joined together as the Growing
Green Coalition to adopt the
city's Summerlin Park and soon-
to-be-connected Nye Jordan
Park.
Student members of the
Bartow High School Key Club,
the newly-formed Interact Club,
its science department and ag
program will join representatives
of Bartow Rotary and Kiwanis
Clubs, and the Junior Service
League in the signing of multiple
Friends of the Parks Foundation
"Park Partners Pledges."
They have pledged to keep the
two park sites clean and beauti-
ful as part of opening ceremonies
for the Bartow High and IB


School's first annual Earth Day
on Wilson Lake beginning at 9
a.m., Friday, March 23.
"Our Earth Day event is
designed to showcase student
studies and community service
activities, that instill life-long
commitments to responsible
stewardship of mother earth and
volunteerism giving back to
our communities," explains Dr.
Edwin Vetter, IB principal.
"Through grants from
Southwest Florida Water
Management District and the
School Board's community-ser-
vice learning program, we are
able to involve our students in
projects that make a real differ-
ence. As one of the Foundation's
first Schoolyard Nursery sites.


Spring Cleanup Week in Bartow continues through March 23.
The city's solid waste department will waive special collection fees for
residential customers. Furniture, large appliances, small appliances,
and junk will be picked up at no charge. Special collection fees will.be
charged for vehicle .tires, building material, whole trees, and high-
density material, such as tree stumps, limbs and branches more than
six inches in diameter. Small items should be bagged and placed with
boxes, furniture, junk, yard waste, large and small appliances at the
curb before your neighborhood's yard waste and junk collection day.
Once collection crews leave the neighborhood, they will not return
until the following week, when piles will be subject to special collec-
tion fees. Staff photo


students in our ag program will '
be growing native and Florida- .! *

No Local Cases of Illness Reported From Recalled Pet Food


By PEGGY KEHOE
Managing Editor

Like Old Mrs. Hubbard, pet
owners went to their cupboards -
but they were hoping that their
canned pet food was not recalled.
A major recall of "cuts and
gravy" style pet food in cans and
pouches sent shivers of fear
through many pet owners over
the weekend. The "precautionary"
recall was issued by Menu Foods
Income Fund on Friday for "a por-
tion of the dog and cat food it
manufactured between Dec. 3,
2006 and March 6, 2007."
The recall is limited to "cuts
and gravy" style pet food in cans
and pouches manufactured4t two
of the Fund's United States facili-
ties.


While many of the affected
products are sold as store brands,
some are higher-priced brands.
Dry food is not affected.
SVeterinarians in Bartow and
Fort Meade report no cases of ill-
ness, although Bartow Animal
Clinic has heard of a case in Polk
City.
Dr. R. Craig Case of Main
Street Animal Hospital said they
are "putting out fires and getting
as'much information as we can."
One patient had eaten a can of
one of the recalled brands, but
the owner checked the date on the
can and found it was not one of
the affected products.
Symptoms would be wide-
spread, Case said, and could
include malaise, not eating, vom-
iting, gastrointestinal problems


and possibly neurological prob-
lems.
Bartow Animal Care Hospital
and Dr. N.L. Black of Fort Meade
have reported no cases. Black said
he does not sell any of the recalled
brands.
Consumers should stop using
the affected products immediate-
ly, and consult with.a veterinari-
an if any symptoms are present in
their pet.
After receiving some reports of
illness, Menu Foods ran a "sub-
stantial battery of technical tests,
conducted by both internal and
external specialists, but has failed
to identify any issues with the
products in question." However,
the complaints coincided with the
introduction of an ingredient from
a new supplier. The company


stopped using the ingredient
shortly after this discovery and
production since then has used
ingredients from another source.
"We take these complaints very
seriously and, while we are still
looking for a specific cause, we are
acting to err on the side of cau-
tion" said Paul K. Henderson,
president and CEO of Menu
Foods.
The number of complaints has
been relatively small, the compa-
ny said.
In addition to changing suppli-
ers, the company has increased
testing of all raw materials and
finished goods.
The recall could cost the com-
pany between $30 million and $40
million, a spokesman said.
A list of brand names recalled


can by found on the company's
website at
www.menufoods. com/recall.
Products not identified on the
website can continue to be used.
Consumers should check back
regularly to get up-to-date infor-
mation. The website contains
detailed information on the prod-
ucts subject to recall, together
with updated dates of production
and links to related recalls.
Information also is available
by calling 1-866-895-2708

Ridge Career Center To


License Student Truckers


Trucking companies CTL
Transportation, LLC, and CCC
Transportation, LLC, together
with the Ridge Career Center in
Winter Haven, have begun a
partnership to train students
interested in obtaining a Class A
commercial driver's license.
As part of Florida's Polk
County Public. School System,
Ridge Career Center will provide
students with nationally accred-
ited Class A tractor-trailer driver
training. Upon graduation from
this comprehensive training pro-
gram, students will have the
opportunity for immediate
employment through CTL
Transportation or CCC
Transportation.
The first three-week training
class began on Feb. 5 at the
Winter Haven campus.


The program teaches students
vital skills through a combina-
tion of in-class and on-the-job
training, and students start earn-
ing a salary after the third week.
New classes are scheduled to
begin every three weeks.
In addition to instruction, the
modern facilities at Ridge Career
Center, located at 7700 State
Road 544, provide an ideal envi-
ronment for student drivers, a
spokesman said. The campus fea-
tures a lighted skill pad with a
half-mile track, spacious class-
rooms and an on-site cafeteria
where sponsored students will be
treated to hot lunches during
training.
While delivering comprehen-
sive training is a major objective
of this program, another priority
is offering immediate career


placement for graduates.
To benefit from this partner-
ship, a student driver should first
apply to CTL Transportation or
CCC Transportation. Those com-
panies will then sponsor qualify-
ing students to attend the driver
training program at no cost, in
exchange for completing one year
of employment with the sponsor-
ing company immediately after
graduation.
Sponsored students must
repay the tuition loan only if they
do not complete one year of
employment with the sponsoring
company.
To enroll or for more informa-
tion on. Ridge Career Center dri-
ver training program, call 419-

SEU Students
Devote Spring
Break to
Service in
Mexico

A group of Southeastern
University students soaked up
the sun in Mexico during their
spring break, but it was while
painting school buildings and not
lounging on a beach.
Twenty-six students painted
schools and volunteered in at an
orphanage, a rehabilitation cen-
ter and several local churches
during their visit to San Luis del
Rio Colorado in Sonora, Mexico.
The alternative spring break
experience is the first of its kind
led by Southeastern University's
Student Life Department and is
an effort to promote servant lead-
ership.
The concept of servant leader-
ship how. a leader serves oth-
ers in a way that enables them to
fulfill their potential to achieve
excellence, quality and continued
growth is a cornerstone of
Southeastern.
"Servant leadership is think-
ing about other people's needs
before thinking of our own," said
Amber Grayford, a. 19-year-old
communications major from
Eustis. "This trip is about putting
ourselves second and responding
to the needs of others."

4 The Polk County Democrat March 19, 2007


Editorial


Judge Roberts Is Not Soft


On Crime, or Criminals


No prosecutor likes to lose a case, espe-
cially by directed verdict.
No judge likes to be reversed by an
appellate court, especially in a high profile
case.
After talking to a number of knowledge-
able people on both sides of the highly-
publicized battle of wills between the state
attorney's office and Circuit Judge Susan
Roberts conversations both on and off
the record we are convinced that the
whole controversy boils down to those two
facts.
Judge Roberts has properly maintained
her silence; a judge is in a unique position
among elected officials, and cannot appro-
priately comment in a case like this.
For several weeks, the state attorney's
office has tried to have Judge Roberts
removed from trying 26 first degree mur-
der cases in Polk and Highlands Counties,
first by asking her to recuse herself, then
(through the attorney general's office) by
asking the Second District Court of Appeal
to remove her.
The state asserts that Judge Roberts has
shown a bias against the prosecution, and
has let the possibility of reversal on appeal
color her decisions.
The Second DCA didn't buy it, and with
all due respect to State Attorney Jerry Hill
and his capable staff, neither do we. Judge
Roberts simply isn't a candidate for the
"soft on crime" label.
Probably the most telling criticism that
can be leveled at her is that she speaks her
mind, sometimes telling people what they
don't want to hear.
Anyone who knows Judge Roberts, pro-
fessionally or socially, is well aware of this.
It is a sign of her strength of character, but
it doesn't always serve her well on the
bench.
There is a truism in judicial circles: No
judge ever got in trouble by keeping his (or
her) mouth shut. By ruling without
explaining, a judge can largely escape crit-
icism. That may not be good government,
but it probably is good politics.
We would rather see elected officials
stand behind their decisions with explana-
tions, but that's not the easy way out for a
judge.
The state attorney's objections are based
in large part on these issues:
She told the families of the four vic-
tims in the Nelson Serrano murder case
that she would hold them in contempt of
court if they displayed emotion in the
courtroom. We found her tone unnecessar-
ily sharp in that case, but don't see where
it had anything to do with a finding of


guilt or innocence in her courtroom. (The
defendant was convicted on all counts.)
She directed a verdict of acquittal in a
murder case, and told the jurors that she
believed a conviction likely would be over-
turned on appeal. Whether she was correct
or not, we have no idea. But her candor
didn't sit well with jurors, who apparently
would have convicted the defendant, or
with the prosecutor, who presumably
could smell victory. No judge wants to be
reversed on appeal; most just aren't that
candid in acknowledging it.
She told prosecutors that she would be
more cautious in allowing evidence to be
introduced in a capital murder case than
she would in a less serious felony. We sus-
pect most judges would do the same, but
most wouldn't be candid enough to say so.
She urged the state to reconsider its
plan to seek the death penalty against a 65-
year-old defendant, reasoning that he
probably would die of old age before the
appeals ran their expensive course. That
was a practical, if judicially tactless, obser-
vation.
The issue presumably will go away
when Judge Roberts and several of her col-
leagues are rotated into new assignments
the first of July.
For peace in the courthouse, that may be
a good thing, but we'd really rather have
seen Judge Roberts try the cases assigned
to her.
For the record, Judge Roberts has been
reversed twice in the Daryl Moody murder
case, a case in which the evidence against
the defendant was overwhelming. We
agree with the judge that the evidence dis-
allowed. on appeal was properly obtained
by police.
We believe the reversals in both trials
were wrong, and that justice was not
served.
Judge Susan Roberts may not be a diplo-
mat on the bench, but she is not soft on
crime, or criminals.

An early, dramatic demonstra-
tion of man and nature's changes to
the soggy earth, swamps and
streams that feed the Peace River is
Kissengen Springs.
The bucolic setting was a popu-
lar summer recreation mecca by the
1930s. The Springs, midway in the
dozen miles that separate Bartow
and Fort Meade, was very nearly
round and about 200 feet across.
The popular swimming hole
offered dressing rooms and a dance
pavilion at the edge of its sandy
beach, shaded by tall trees. The
water was deep enough for a two-
level diving platform.
The Springs went dry 50 years
ago and has never come back. A
picture of the Springs in the old
days is among scores of pho-
tographs in "Peace River Pioneers,"
a slim volume published in 1974 by
Louise K. Frisbie. It is a delightful
book by a newspaper woman, who
was married to a newspaperman
and mother of a newspaperman.
Her son, my friend S. L., is the
fourth generation of Frisbies to run
The Polk County Democrat, which
recently became part of our news-
paper efforts.
The book carries us through the
first settlements in the 1840s and
50s, then through the Indian Wars.


Empty of settlers, Southwest
Florida began to attract.pioneers in
the 1840s when General Andrew
Jackson promised 160 acres free to
any who would settle and join a
militia company.
We meet many. a pioneer whose
progeny populate the valley from
Bartow to Charlotte Harbor. Lt.
Alderman Carlton was killed near
Fort Meade during a surprise
Indian attack. He was the great-
great grandfather of Doyle Carlton,
one of five governors to live- in the
Valley.
Others were Henry Mitchell,
elected in 1893, and Albert Gilchrist
of Punta Gorda, who served from
1909 to 1913. He was followed by
Park Trammell. One of the most
distinguished was Bartow native
Spessard Holland, governor during
World War II.
Cattle baron Ziba King had vast
holdings but lived most of his life
in the Fort Ogden-Arcadia area.
Kings Highway follows his old cat-
tle trail.
We meet many familiar names
whose offspring still populate the
area: Wilson, Summerlin, Parker,
Seward, Hendry, Wells, Morgan,
Albritton and Morgan Bonapart
"Bone" Mizelle, a cowboy with
style, to name a few. Mrs. Lydia


Carlton Hendry Moody had 383
descendants when she died in at 86
in 1898.
In the early days and, into the
middle of the last century, the
tough, scrawny cattle roamed free
on the open prairie and in the pal-
metto scrub or hid in the palm and
oak hammocks.
Roundups and branding of the
calves was usually a cooperative
affair, but not always. The assump-
tion was that the calves belonged to
the nearest branded cow. This left
room for disputes.
In the 1890s a full-scale cattle
war erupted in DeSoto County
with imported gunmen and shoot-
ings from ambush. The bloodshed
ended when' James Newton
Hollingsworth called rival cattle-
men together and persuaded them
to share the pastures.
Colorful characters, camp meet-
ings, the sketchy education, a cer-
tain pioneer independence and
community pride in paved streets,
new courthouses or Masonic halls
reveal a sense of our Peace River
Valley heritage.

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

Maybe You Should Keep the Sticker


Every newspaper editor in
the nation but one encourages,
cajoles, even shames people
into going to the polls on each
election day.
If you don't vote, they warn,
you're doomed to get bad gov-
ernment, bad karma, and bad
breath.
And who might that one
exception be?
Who indeed? You're reading
his work.
I have long urged voters to
cast, an informed vote, after
studying the candidates and
the issues. And if that is too tall
an order, at least talk to your
friends, or see whose signs are
posted in the yards of people
whose judgment you trust.
To cast a random vote for
someone you never heard of is
worse than useless; it is coun-
terproductive. You cancel out
the vote of someone who takes
the voting responsibility seri-
ously, and who knows which
candidate stands for what.
I use myself as Exhibit A.
As a freshman at Florida
State University, I voted in the
first student body election in
my freshman year, because I
knew everybody was supposed
to vote.
I didn't recognize a single
name on the ballot.
Hometowns were listed next to


the candidates (a mistake for
people like me) and I voted for
the candidates who lived in or
nearest to Polk County.
I later realized that I had
canceled out the vote of some-
body who knew what was at
stake, and so I never again
voted in student body elections,
except in those rare races in
which I knew for whom I was
voting.
Thus, even though it be
heresy to say so, I find no evil
in failing to vote.
As a general rule, I find no
fault with incentives offered to
voters, the most common being
those nifty little "I Voted" stick-
ers that you get at the polls. I
wear mine with pride for the
remainder of the election day,
and have even been known to
stick one on the back of my
electronic flash unit.
That way, the people whom I
flash know how patriotic I am.
Well, you know what I mean.
Over in Tampa, there is a fre-
quent candidate for public
office named Joe Redner. He is
the most colorful candidate in
Hillsborough County politics
since the late Jim Fair. Jim rates
a whole anotherr column some
day.
Joe is a businessman of no
small reputation. He is the
Entrepreneur of Adult


Entertainment. The Guru of
Gentlemen's Clubs. The
Choreographer of Exotic Dance
Establishments.
Okay, he owns strip bars, got
it?
Just as the voters of
Hillsborough County eventual-
ly elected Jim Fair to be super-
visor of elections, the voters of
Tampa have put Redner into a
run-off for city council. ,
As an incentive to voters to
go to the polls in the run-off, he
has offered to waive the $20
cover charge (seems to me it
should be called an uncover
charge, if you get my drift) for
admission to his premier club
for anyone wearing an "I
Voted" sticker.
It is, by all accounts, legal.
The supervisor of elections
gives you an "I Voted" sticker;
Joe Redner gives you a free
peep. Different strokes for dif-
ferent folks.
I think this is where the Law
of Unintended Consequences
rears its ugly but not unfamil-
iar head.

"Hi, Janie, I'm home."
"Hi, David, did you remem-
ber to go vote?"
"Of course I-did. You know I
never miss an election."
"Then where's your little 'I
Voted' sticker?"


ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

No Longer a Scofflaw


My birthday was on Feb. 22
and I was 80 years old. I didn't-
pay too much attention to that
until March 2, but when I hap-
pened to look at my driver's
license at the grocery store, I real-
ly flipped out.
It expired on my birthday.
I could
have been arrested for driving
without a license. Arrested! Me!
Arrested
My first job out of high school
was in 1944 when I went to
Washington to work for the F.B.I.
during World War II. I was
assigned to the Identification
Division, classifying fingerprint
cards.
After the war was over, I came
home to Bartow and went to
work for the Florida Highway
Patrol. I really loved that job. I
did a little of everything -
relieved the radio operator, typed
accident reports, and in hurricane
season, day or night, I stood by
with the mop. We were in the
basement and water occasionally
rose more than a foot down there.
I think that was my favorite job
ever.
In 1950, I couldn't decide
whether to move to Atlanta and
get married or stay in Bartow and
be the only girl in the office. I did
finally decide to get married and
move to Atlanta. I worked for the
DeKalb County Police for awhile,
but it didn't come close to the job


satisfaction I had with the Florida
Highway Patrol. I quit the police,
had a baby, and stayed home.
I have always been a law abid-
ing citizen. I even stop for caution
lights.
And then it happened. I
became a law breaker and didn't
even know it until 10 days later. I
was driving. Without a driver's
license.
Horrors! What would have
happened if I had been stopped
at a driver's license checkpoint?
It made me sick at my stomach
to think about it.
Luckily, the sheriff of DeKalb
County is a friend of minet 1
called him and told him of the
awful thing I had done. He said
not to worry, that he would turn
the whole thing over to Sergeant
Wayne Fitch, who would make
sure that I didn't wind up in jail
and would report back to him
after I got my new license.
The Driver's License Bureau is
way over on the other side of the
county and I had no idea how to
get there. Even if I did, I wouldn't
have driven there without a dri-
ver's license.
I called my friend, Rad Eldel,
the taxi driver, to come and get
me. When I get in a bind or don't
know where I am going, 1 call
Rad. He is always so cheerful it
makes me feel that everything
will turn out all right. He knew
exactly where the driver's license


bureau was and took me there in
no time flat.
They had moved since I got
my last license. They were in a
huge new mall right next to
Amazing Rooms Furniture. They
had a line snaking around and
around through the ropes and a
lot of people behind counters
asking questions
I filled out the questions on the
paper they hailded me and then
got in line to have my picture
taken. A lady told me to take a
seat and wait until they called me
on the loud speaker.
When they called me, I
thought they would give me my
license, but no. They called me
back and said my picture didn't
turn out right and wasn't satis-
factory. She took another one.
That one wasn't satisfactory,
either. The third one she took met
with her satisfaction. She filled in
the form, put it in the machine,
and called me back to get my
license.
It was a funny looking license.
I looked, well, frozen in the pic-
ture.
Kind of like I had recently had
plastic surgery. I didn't care. I
wouldn't have cared if it looked
like 1 was bald and cross-eyed.
The most important thing on it is
that it is good for five years.
1 wonder if 1 am.

No. Local Cases In Pet Food Recall Junior Service


In an effort to increase agricul-
tural literacy statewide, Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner read to
children at a Tallahasee elemen-
tary school to kick off the fourth
Florida Agriculture Literacy Day.
Bronson read "Oh Say Can You
Seed?" to two kindergarten class-
es at Roberts Elementary School.
He joined more than 1,400 farm-
ers, ranchers, members of local
FFA chapters agricultural
industry volunteers and educa-
tors who are reading in more
than 2,900 elementary class-
rooms around the state in honor
of the day.
National Agriculture Week is
March 18-24.
Florida Agriculture Literary
Day is organized by the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services and Florida
Agriculture in the Classroom,
Inc., a non-profit organization
based in Gainesville and charged
with educating Florida students
and teachers about the impor-
tance of agriculture.


"Children today are several
generations removed from the
farm, so it's important we use
events like Florida Agriculture
Literacy Day to teach them their
food, fiber and landscape materi-
als come from farms and not
stores," Bronson said.
More than 294 volunteers read
today in 557 classrooms.
Florida Ag in the Classroom
provides the books to industry
volunteers free of charge, and
asks the books be donated to the
school libraries after readings. In
addition to the books, the organi-
zation provides volunteers with a
lesson designed for the book for
teachers and a classroom set of
bookmarks.
Florida Ag in the Classroom
funds the program through sales
of the agriculture specialty
license plate the "Ag Tag."
In addition, the organization
provides curricula, materials,
workshops, grant money and
other programs to teachers and
agriculture industry volunteers.

CHANGES ARE MADE IN DETERMINA-
TIONS OF BASE FLOOD ELEVATIONS FOR
THE UNINCORPORATED AREAS OF POLK
COUNTY, FLORIDA, UNDER
THE NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE
PROGRAM
On December 20, 2000, the Department of
Homeland Security's Federal Emergency
Management Agency identified Special Flood
Hazard Areas (SFHAs) in the unincorporated
areas of Polk County. Florida, through the
issuance of a Flood Insurance Rate Map
(FIRM). The Mitigation Division has determined
that modification of the elevations of the flood
having a 1-percent chance of being equaled or
exceeded in any given year (base flood) for cer-
tain locations in this community is appropriate.
The modified Base Flood Elevations (BFEs)
revise the FIRM for the community.
The changes are being made pursuant to
Section 206 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act
of 1973 (Public Law 93-234) and are in accor-
dance with the National Flood Insurance Act of
1968, as amended (Title XIII of the Housing and
Urban Development Act of 1968, Public Law 90-
448), 42 U.S.C. 4001-4218, and 44 CFR Part
65.
Hydrologic analysis were performed to incor-
porate detailed topographic information for West
Wet Pond, approximately 1,000 feet northeast of
the intersection of Drane Field Road and CSX
Transportation; for Pit Pond, approximately
1,300 feet northwest of the intersection of Drane
Field Road and Harden Boulevard; for West
Pretreat Pond, approximately 800 feet northeast
of the intersection of Drane Field Road and CSX
Transportation; for Northeast Pretreat Pond,
approximately 1,000 feet northwest of the inter-
section of Drane Field Road and Harden
Boulevard; and for Hotel Pond, approximately
1,100 feet northwest of the intersection of Drane
Field Road and Harden Boulevard. This has
resulted in increases and decrease in SFHA
width and establishment of BFEs for the flooding
sources cited above. The table below indicates
existing and modified BFEs for selected loca-
tions along the affected lengths of tihe flooding
sources) cited above.

Lake Wales High School Lady
Highlanders swatted the Lady
Yellow Jackets of Bartow High
in an exciting 6-4 ball game
Friday night at Lake Wales.
Courtney Putnam started the
game for the Bugs, but lasted
only one and two-thirds innings
as the Highlanders liked what
she was serving, racking four of
their runs.
Danielle Mills came into the
game in relief and went the rest
of the way, allowing two more
runs over four and one-third
innings.
Once more proving that the
baseball sage knew what he was
talking about, the game wasn't
over until it was over.

Bartow plated three runs in
the top of the final frame and
had the bases loaded with two
-outs. A base hit would tie the
game. Alas, the final out of the
contest was a fly ball to right
field that squashed the Bugs'
hope for a win.
Head Coach Glenn Rutenbar
took some solace in the loSs.
"I was. excited with the
game," Rutenbar exclaimed.
"I'm real happy with the kids.
Last time we met, we had a
bunch of strikeouts. This time?
Ten hits, no strikeouts."
"We'll see them again in the
Districts," he added.
Fans who came early Friday
got their money'.s worth, as the
junior varsity Lady Jackets
defeated the Highlanders 4-1.
"Super" Sami Burton recorded
the win for BHS.
The Bug batters were pelting


the pitc es at the platter all
night lo g. Kaly Flood and
Jessica opez both crushed
three hit,, leading the team.
But C ristian Taylor had the
