Smoking Banned

On BRMC Campus

Beginning June 1


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

-:Those going for treatment will,
as of June 1, no longer have to
walk through a cloud of smoke on
their way into Bartow Regional
Medical Center, and those who
smoke will find themselves
unable to engage in their habit
anywhere on hospital property -
including their own vehicles.
Watson Clinic has already
instituted a smoke free policy,
and now Bartow Regional
Medical Center follows suit.
"We are a health care provider,
and we want to enhance the
health of the community," hospi-
tal CEO Justin Davis said. "We
also have heard numerous com-
plaints from non-smokers regard-
ing walking through smoke on
the way into the hospital."
The ban will apply to the hos-
pital, parking lot, physician
offices on the campus and private
vehicles parked in the lot basi-
cally there will be no smoking
anywhere on property owned by
the hospital no ifs, hands or
"butts."
-Davis said he sympathizes
with the smokers on staff and


Bartow Relay For Life, sched-
uled for Friday and Saturday,
April 13-14, has been moved back
to Bartow Memorial Stadium.
Relay Committee members
and Bartow High School adminis-
trators came to this decision after
evaluating the current progress of
the new soccer fields near
Summerlin Park.
S"We are disappointed but we
are still planning on some big
changes to make this year's Relay


employed at the physician offices,
so the hospital will be offering
free smoking cessation classes for
employees through the Polk
County Health Department.
"Quitting smoking will reduce
your risk for chronic obstruction
of lung diseases, cancer, heart dis-
ease and stroke, among other ill-
nesses," Jennifer Tempel, tobacco
prevention specialist for Polk
County, said.
Classes offered by the depart-
ment are six weeks, and Ms.
Tempelsaid the classes basically
work as a support group for those
wanting to quit using all forms of
tobacco.
"We discuss coping with with-
drawal, diet and exercise, and
nicotine-replacement therapies,"
she said.
While Davis said he has heard
one or two complaints, the major-
ity of the staff has been very pos-
itive regarding the change.
"Most people have said 'thank
you, this gives 'me a reason to
finally quit.'"

County Health Department

The next class will begin in
May in Lakeland.


New Cartoonist Debuts


A new cartoonist debuts her
work on today's editorial page,
and she's homegrown.
Priscilla Perry, staff writer for
The Fort Meade Leader, not only
reports the news, she's also a
graphic artist.
Her cartoons have appeared in
The Cherokee Chronicle, Gaffney,
S.C.; The Neighbor in Tampa; and
The Gaffney Ledger, also in South
Carolina.
"Sometimes you can get the
point across instantly with a ear-
toon and people can draw their


own conclusions," Perry said. "It
doesn't take a lot of words to get a
cartoon across.
"I'm inspired by those issues
that mean a lot to me and I feel
like there are a lot of other people
out there who share that common
interest."
She and her husband, Charles,
live in Fort Meade, where they are
raising their three grandsons. She
is active in coiimmiity organiza-
tions and both are active mem-
bers of their church.

Scenic Highway Plan Calls For


Increased Development Restraints


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

From an uneasy alliance of
ranchers, farmers, citrus growers,
business owners, land owners,
conservationists and others, a
plan was created to keep east
Polk's scenic highway both scenic
and profitable.
The focus group of 10 members
began meeting more than a year
ago, and saw public participation
from the very beginning.
From those meetings, the
group decided on a "community
vision for the road."
"The group was strongly in
support of agriculture, but want-
ed to balance development," Tom
Woodrich, of Polk County's long
range planning department, said.
As the road winds its way
through several municipalities,
enforcing the plan may be a chal-
lenge, Woodrich said, but the
group is currently working with
the cities.
Key elements of the plan
include larger buffer zones, ask-
ing developers to donate land for
trails and turn-offs, smaller signs
and increased tree plantings.
In addition, the group decided


the plan would only apply to prop-
erty abutting the scenic highway,
and that incentives would be
given to developer wishing to
donate land.
The plan also would only apply
to new development.
"If you have some sort of build-
ing now, that's fine, but when you
want to build more that's when
we'll look at the standards and
incentives," Woodrich said.
In addition to providing a love-
ly drive, Woodrich said the high-
way plan would highlight areas in
each community.
"There are certain attributes
that we want to capitalize on aid
put up signs to encourage people
to get off the road and benefit the
local economy," he said.
Major changes in the land
development code call for a
change in the landscaping buffer
from six to 25 feet, and the use of
more trees in the proposal and
less shrubs.
The group recommended the
use of local native plant species
(longleaf pine, turkey oaks, pal-


metto, scrub hickory) and recom-
mended developers use a mix of
species.
Development or property walls
will be required to blend with veg-
etation,, and the group proposed
the use of wrought iron, stone,
picket, or split rail fencing.
Barbed wire, due to its long
history in agriculture and invisi-
bility from the road, also would be
acceptable, Woodrich said.
The proposed plan also calls
for more natural stormwater
ponds, and building height not to
exceed one story within 40 feet of
the highway.
A list of non-compatible busi-
nesses and uses for abutting
property also was included in the
plan. Some of the uses were sal-
vage yards, adult uses, vehicle
sales, landfills, drive in movies,
power plants, truck stops, car
washes, communication towers,
vehicle repair shops, outdoor com-
mercial storage and self-storage
facilities.
With new homes, Myers said
he could see the use for some stor-


age facilities, but Woodrich said
the plan did not preclude such a
business from surrounding areas,
just property abutting the road.
"Literally 100 feet down the
side street these things can exist,"
he said.
Additionally, signs must be 25
percent smaller and 25 percent
lower than the current land
development code. Additionally,
blinking, non-permanent, and
electronic message boards would
be against new regulations.
Developers giving land could
see incentives including increased
density and quicker movement to
the level two review process in
the county.
In the incentive program there
are four levels developer donates
land for trail, developer donates
land for pull off, developer builds
pull off facility.
"We've come a long way, baby,"
Mimi Hardmen, member of the
focus group, said. "I know you all
are going to be very proud when
we get this done."

For Bonnie Allen, Bartow's
Relay for Life to raise money for
the American Cancer Society is
more than a community event; it
is a quest with intensely person-
al overtones.
Mrs. Allen in one of three hon-
orary chairmen of this year's
Relay, to be held April 13 and 14
at .Summerlin Park, east of
Bartow High School.
"Cancer has touched my fami-
ly in many ways," she said, none
more dramatically than when
her daughter, Kim, "a happy
teenager" who had just been
named Miss Bartow, was diag-
nosed with Hodgkin's Disease.
Kim spent three months at
Shands Hospital at the
University of Florida, and was
treated again for a relapse a year
later.
"We prayed so hard," Mrs.
Allen recalled.
Twenty years later, her daugh-
ter then Kim Tucker was
diagnosed with breast cancer. An
early misdiagnosis delayed treat-
ment for five months, Mrs. Allen
said.
After four-and-a-half years of
battling the disease, Kim died on


April 1, 2004.
"She was a gentle, quiet per-
son, but a real warrior," Mrs.
Allen said of her daughter. And
she became an ardent supporter
of Bartow's fund raising events
for the American Cancer Society.
She was involved in planning
Bartow's first Relay for Life, and
somehow always found the
strength. to participate in the
event, even though weakened by
the disease and the treatments
for it.
"My faith was really shaken
when she died," Mrs. Allen said.
"I had to come to grips that God
knows best.
"She has no more pain."
Kim was committed to three
principles which she urged her
mother to follow:
"Treasure the moment,
Mom.
"Live life to the fullest, Mom.
"If you have a .choice to
dance or sit it out, dance."
Several other members of Mrs.
Allen's family have battled can-
cer, and just one year ago, her
husband, Ken Allen, was diag-
nosed with prostate cancer, she
said.


He received treatment at a
new, state of the art Proton
Therapy Institute at Shands.
"He had eight weeks of thera-
py and he never had one bad
day," she said. A follow-up PSA
test showed he was cancer-free,
she said.
Speaking on behalf of the
Relay for Life, John Hutto said
that it.is one of the most success-
ful events of its type in the south-
eastern United States.
Last year, the Relay raised
$180,000, and this year's goal is
$185,000.
In addition to raising funds for
the ACS, the event brings aware-
ness of cancer to the community,
and recognizes patients who have
survived the disease.
Throughout the nation, 3,700
cases of cancer are diagnosed
each day, he said.
The five-year survival rate has
risen from 50 percent a few years
ago to 65 percent.
Hutto presented an audio-
visual show on last year's Relay
for Life that was created by Trish
Pfeiffer.


on Sheffield Koad at Spirit LaKe
Road, on land owned by Clear
Springs Land Co.
In making that finding, com-
missioners endorsed the recom-
mendation of a Polk County
school board committee. that
ranked four possible sites.
Because the committee's first-
ranked site is in Bartow's sani-
tary sewer service area, the city's
recommendation must be consid-
ered by the school board. The Polk
County commission also will be
asked to concur in the selection.
The other sites, in order, are
east of Starr Lake; on the south-
east shore of Spirit Lake; and
north of Bartow Municipal
Airport. The latter site is in a run-
way approach zone, which effec-
tively eliminated it from consider-
ation, according to Robert
Wiegers, city planning director.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to endorse the school
board committee's recommenda-
tion.
Employee Survey
The commission also approved
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge's rec-
ommendation that the city retain
Dr. Mel Jurado to conduct an atti-


mended by a labor-management
committee.
The process can include a
briefer survey of retired city
employees, commissioners decid-
ed. Daryl Stewart and Tom
Wheeler, co-chairmen, of the com-
mittee, said members were divid-
ed on whether or not to include'
the city's approximately 25
retirees in the survey process.
DeLegge recommended
against including retirees, saying
that the survey "is a management
tool, not a survey of the retire-
ment plan. I don't see where that
would be beneficial."
Retired Police Chief Roy
McKinsey urged the commission
to include retirees in the plan,
saying, "We love the city; we did-
n't stay around here all those
years because we weren't happy."
The commission also:
City Election
Noted DeLegge's announce-
ment that the city will begin pub-
lishing an employee newsletter.
Approved the process for ver-
ifying absentee ballots, and
scheduled a meeting as the can-
vassing board for Thursday, April
5, at 8:30 a.m. at city hall to certi-


Library will be closed on Monday,
March 26, to begin inventory.
Heard Gerald Cochran's
complaints that commissioners
don't talk loud enough at work
sessions, that commission candi-
dates should be given copies of
the city budget, and that the city's
streets are in poor repair.
Heard Paul White urge the
city to establish a four-way stop
at the intersection of Clower
Street and Shumate Drive. White
echoed Cochran's complaints
about the condition of streets.
Designated April as Water
Conservation Month.
Appointed William Fritze to
the Historic Architecture Review
Board.
Reappointed Steve Earley
and John Godwin, to the
Beautification Advisory Board.
Postponed appointments to

Approved an agreement with

temporary placement of a modu-
lar office building on the State

Social Security Trust Funds May Be Exhausted
By 2040, S.S. Executive Tells Lions Members


Why


were 5.1 Social Security tax-pay-
ing wage earners per one benefi-
ciary; by 2006, only 3.3 workers
per beneficiary; and in 2032, it is
projected there will be only 2.1
workers per beneficiary.
Elkins showed figures indicat-
ing 78 million "baby boomers" will
begin retiring in 2008, and in
about 30 years, there will be twice
as many older Americans than
today. Nearly 162 million workers
are earning Social Security pro-
tection, and about 49 million peo-
ple receive retirement survivors
and disability benefits from
Social Security.
The system is designed so that
there is a link between how much
workers and their employers pay
into the system over their work-
ing years, and how much workers
will receive in benefits. The cur-


rent combined payroll tax rate is
12.4 percent.
Workers may retire as early as
age 62 with reduced Social
Security benefits, or wait until
full retirement age, now 65 years
and 10 months, and receive full
benefits. Full retirement age is
increasing gradually, and will
reach 67 for people born after
1959.
Social Security may help pay
for Medicare prescription drug
plan costs for those with limited
income and resources, Elkins
said.
More information about Social
Security benefits may be found by
calling 1-800-772-1213, or by log-
ging on to www.socialsecurity.gov.

Winter Haven Hospital will hold a major
groundbreaking on Tuesday, March 27, at
9:45 a.m. to ceremoniously kick off construc-
tion of the final phase of its three-year $40
million expansion and renovation project.
The 60,000 square-foot project, scheduled
to be completed in June 2009, will add capa-
bilities to multiple areas of the hospital.
New surgical facilities, a new cardiac step-
down unit and a cardiac rehabilitation center
will be added to the Bostick Heart Center.
The hospital's main lobby will be expanded
and refurbished, and a new facade will be cre-
ated for the hospital's main eight-story


Swann tower.
"This is the culmination of years of effort
by literally hundreds of people who worked to
get us.to this point, and at the same time, it
is the beginning of a new era for Winter
Haven Hospital," said Richard Straughn,
chairman of the hospital's board of directors.
The contractor handling the construction
project is Doster Construction of
Birmingham, Ala., the same company that
recently completed construction of a 117,000
square-foot, 283-place parking garage on the
hospital's grounds: The architect for the pro-
ject is Harvard Jolly, Inc. of Tampa.


"This is a watershed moment in the 81-
year history of our hospital," Lance
Anastasio, president and CEO of Winter
Haven Hospital, said "With this expansion,
we are greatly expanding our capacity for
patient care while presenting a modern new
face to the community. As an institution, we
are extremely proud of what we have accom-
plished and we invite everyone in east Polk
County to share in that sense of accomplish-
ment."

Florida Releases New Sacred Music

Folklife Collection Compact Disc


State Library and Archives of
Florida has released a new com-
pact disc titled "Shall We Gather
at the River: African-American
Sacred Music from the Florida
Folklife Collection."
The CD spotlights African-
American musical traditions
found in the Florida Folklife
Collection.
This rich collection, which is
generated by the Florida Folklife
Program, consists of field notes,
images, and sound recordings
documenting the ethnic, religious,
and cultural diversity reflected in
the communities of Florida.
This is the third musical CD
released by the State Library and
Archives of Florida. The first two,
"Music from the Florida Folklife
Collection" and "More Music from
the Florida Folklife Collection,"
feature a diverse selection of
music from across the state.
These three CDs have made
many of these recordings readily.

ated an overwhelming response,"
said Secretary of State Kurt S.
Browning. "The attention and
radio airplay they have attracted
from around the world are testa-
ments to Florida's unique cultur-
al heritage and the importance of
these preservation efforts."
The latest disc, which is avail-
able for free, features both nation-
ally recognized acts and previous-
ly unknown local artists, includ-
ing the Dixie Hummingbirds, the
Georgia Sea Island Singers, the
Versiteers, and the Amigo Male
Singers.
One of the most powerful
tracks comes from a group of res-
idents of the Madison County,
Senior Center, recorded in 1983.
The disc also includes two
musical traditions unfamiliar to
most listeners. The first is Hymn
Lining, a practice that dates back
to the 17th century and involves a
leader singing a hymn line which
is then repeated by the congrega-
tion. ,
The disc features a rendition,of
"The Peaceful. Death of the
Righteous" by Florida Folk
Heritage Award-winning hymn


liner Troy Demps.
Another unique tradition
showcased on the disc is sacred
harp singing, which dates from
the 1600s. This a capella singing
style used four syllables (fa, sol,
la, and mi), which were represent-
ed by four shapes (triangle, circle,
square, and diamond) in later
hymnals.
These shaped notes allowed
untrained or illiterate church
members to easily participate in
worship services. This tradition
is demonstrated on the disc by a
performance from the Florida-
Alabama Progressive Seven-
Shape Note Singing Convention.

Help is available for anyone entertaining
thoughts' or discussions about attempting
suicide.
Suicide is a subject that most people do
not talk about much.
According to the Florida Suicide
Prevention Coalition web site, suicide is
the tenth leading cause of death in Florida.
The most recent report, for 2005, reported
that there were 2,308 suicides in Florida,
the third highest number in the nation.
The largest number of suicides in
Florida was in the 45 to 54-year-old age
group, totaling 520.
It was the second leading cause of death
for Floridians age 24 to 34.
Suicide is the third leading cause-of
death among teenagers in America.
Teenage suicide rates have tripled over the
past two decades; 6,500 teenagers take
their own lives every year.
Nine out of 10 teen attempts take place
in the home just before parents come home
from work. About half of the victims have
been in trouble with the law or at school or
are known to abuse alcohol and drugs.
Another sobering statistic is that Florida
had more than twice as many suicides as
homicides.
According to the FSPC web site, the total
number of suicides in America was more
30,000. Every 43 seconds, someone in the
U.S. attempts suicide; every 18 minutes
someone in the U.S. dies by suicide.
There is no typical suicide victim. It
claims the young and the old, the rich and
the poor.
Each person who dies by suicide leaves
behind an average of six grieving family
members.
There are warning signs that if acted


upon can save lives. They are:
Hopelessness or helplessness.
Talking, writing or hinting about sui-
cide.
Extreme changes in behavior.
Putting one's affairs in order or giving
away possessions.
Relationship breakup.
Buying a gun or weapon or stockpil-
ing drugs.
Becoming suddenly happier and
calmer, giving the impression that things
have improved.
At a greater risk are those who have
attempted suicide before, or who have a
major illness; job or financial loss; untreat-
ed depression; isolation; family disruption;
or sexual, mental or physical abuse.
Help is always available.
The quickest way to reach out for help is
to call 1-800-273-8255. A talk line is avail-
able 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
We encourage anyone who has had
thoughts of suicide to call right away.
Help is waiting.

Item: State Sen. Victor Crist
has introduced Senate Bill 1462
relating to restaurant restrooms,
mandating, among other things,
that "a supply of toilet paper
must be provided in each toilet
stall at all times."i

Judge: Call the next case.
Bailiff: The State of Florida vs.
McDonald, R.
Judge: And what is the charge?
Bailiff: Failing to comply with
Senate Bill 1462 regarding main-
tenance of an adequate supply of
janitorials in public facilities
readily accessible to patrons at all
times.
Judge (to the defendant): Mr.
McDonald, the court is not
amused by your dress. The hori-
zontal stripes and oversize red
shoes are a fashion statement not
in keeping with the dignity of
this courtroom, and the white
make-up and fake red nose bor-
der on contempt.
Defendant: I'm terribly sorry,
Your Honor, but these are the
only clothes I have. As to the
facial make-up, I really don't
think anyone would recognize
me without it.
Judge: Are you trying the
patience of the court, Mr.
McDonald?
Defendant: Not at all, Your

to run red lights, park overtime.

with malice aforethought aind
felonious intent, I wouldn't have
much to do, now would I?
Defendant: No, Judge, I guess
not.
Judge: And just what sanction
do you believe the court should
impose?
Defendant: I suppose you
could hold the pickle; hold the
lettuce. It would be one of those
special order things. Some places
aren't upset by that type of order.
You know ... Have it your way;
have it your way.
Judge: I beg your pardon?
Defendant: Sorry, Your Honor,
I meant no disrespect. The tune
was just running through my
mind. Things like that happen in
my line of work.
Defendant continues, sobbing:
You have no idea what it's like
being in this business. I'm a
clown, and my competitors are a
plastic-headed king and little girl
with fake pigtails. Now there's a
cat who thinks he's a rap star. It's
a clown-eat-cat world out there.
And now I've got to keep TP in
every stall. Sometimes it's just
more than I can stand...

enough. Case dismissed.

Another Member of the Family


Almost half a century ago,
Lamonte and Emmalene Moore
were the publishers of the
Okeechobee News.
The family was having dinner
with their grandchildren on a
Tuesday evening when the front
door flew open and a neighbor
delivered startling news.
Their newspaper office was on
fire. The family business had
burned down.
Undeterred, Lamonte and
Emmalene packed up the family
and moved to nearby Lake
Placid, a beautiful town in
Highlands County. There was a
newspaper for sale, and the par-
ents told their children and
grandchildren of a community
filled with lakes, swimming, fish-
ing, boating and the pleasant
aroma of orange blossoms.
Highlands County's commu-
nity newspaper has been in the
Moore and Delaney families for
44 years.
Mat Delaney, the publisher of
the Journal, and his mother,
Constance Delaney, recently
decided that it was time to
entrust the family's business to
another family ours.
We are proud to welcome the
Journal family to our own group
of family-owned newspapers,
and especially proud of the trust


MESA, ARIZ. I'm writing
about Melanie Marshall's outstand-
ing letter: "Drug war is like witch
burning."
I'd like to add that if tough-on-
drugs policies worked, the idealis-
tic goal of a drug-free America
would have been reached a long
time ago.
And if tolerant drug policies cre-
ated more drug use, the
Netherlands would have much
higher drug usage rates than the
United States. They do not.
In fact, the Dutch use marijuana
and other recreational drugs at


the Delaneys have that we will
continue to publish a communi-
ty-oriented, weekly publication
in their hometown.
It was back in March 1963 that
Lamonte and Emmalene bought
the Journal from a group of local
investors. The Moores and their
daughter, Constance, ran the
paper's day-to-day operations.
As the years progressed, the
Moores and their five grandchil-
dren all took part in producing
the community's newspaper..
Grandson Mark Delaney
remembers a meeting called by
Lamonte back in 1963.
"I was in the third grade, and
my grandfather called a meeting
with all five, grandchildren, and
he explained to us that he was
going to teach us a trade. I didn't
know what a trade was, but if my
grandfather was teaching it, I
wanted to learn. And learn we
did. We all became proficient in
the newspaper and printing
trade.
"Kaye, the oldest, became the
bookkeeper, Monte became the
general manager, Matthew the
publisher. Mary Margaret, the
youngest, became the circulation
director, and I was the advertis-
ing sales representative,"
Delaney said.
Delaney said his grandfather

do. See the web site:

And if tolerant drug policies
caused more overall crime, espe-
cially violent crime, the Dutch
would have much higher crime
rates than the United States.
They do not.

rate, and their rate of incarceration
is about one-seventh the U.S. rate.

"One time he told us three
boys that if we could whip him
he would give us the newspaper.
None of us took him up on the
challenge," he said.
Our newspaper company is a
tad bit larger than the Lake Placid
Publishing Co., but we are a fam-
ily-run business with a similar
history. We understand and truly
love community journalism. We
believe every town, no matter
how small, deserves an indepen-
dent newspaper that reflects the
values of its citizens.
A local newspaper is owned
by the community. Our job will
be to work with all of the stake-
holders in the Lake Placid com-
munity to help make it a better
place for current and future gen-
erations.
It is truly an honor to be able to
carry on the tradition of commu-
nity newspapering in Lake Placid
that Lamonte and Emmalene
began back in 1963.

United States, marijuana is sold by
criminals who often sell other,
much more dangerous drugs and
who often offer free samples of the
more dangerous drugs to their
marijuana customers, thus creating
the gateway effect.
Legalize, regulate, and control
the sale of marijuana, and we close
the gateway. Legalize all types of
recreational drugs and sell them in

and we will make the term "drug-

INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD

Dean Martin: Still King of Cool


For several days now I've been on
a Dean Martin binge.
I do that sometimes, binge on cer-
tain singers. After seeing Bobby
Goldsboro in concert a few months
ago, all I listened to for days was
Goldsboro. Then I switched to Bing
Crosby for a while. Then Elvis.
Orbison. Buddy Holly. Bobby Vee.
Connie Francis. Anyway, now it's
Dean's turn. I can't seem to get
enough of him.
Dean Martin was born Dino
Crocetti on June 7, 1917, in
Steubenville, Ohio. He had one older
brother, Bill. The Crocetti boys
attended Steubenville Elementary
School. Dino played drums in his
local Boy Scout troupe.
Dino had his first Holy
Communion on May 15, 1927. He
took the name "Paul" as his confir-
mation middle name on April 30,
1928.
,Although it's generally believed
that Dino graduated from
Steubenville High, the truth is he quit
in the tenth grade.
"It was because I thought I
thought I was smarter than my teach-
ers," he admitted later.
He worked as a service station
attendant, a shoeshine boy, a store
clerk, and a steel mill worker. He
even put in a decent showing as an
amateur welterweight boxer aind
prizefighter. Calling himself "Kid
Crochet," he earned $10 a match, but
decided it wasn't worth the beatings.
During the Depression, Dino
delivered illegal liquor between state
lines. He sold lottery tickets and
booked small betting. In gambling
establishments around Steubenville,
he became an expert dealer and
croupier, and met many entertainers.
One night in August 1934, the
story gbes, Dino's friends pushed
him up on stage to sing. He was 17.
Soon he was singing at the State


Restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, with
the Ernie McKay Band. Word got out
to Sammy Watkins in Cleveland that
this kid was good. Dino became
Sammy's featured vocalist. It was
around this time that Dino Paul
Crocetti became Dean Martin.
Martin teamed with Jerry Lewis
and the two were a sensation. People
couldn't get enough of them. Every
performance was standing room
only. Their stage act led to a movie
contract.
But after 10 years of being half the
team of "Martin and Lewis," Dean
wanted out. The two were growing
in different directions and Dean was
feeling like a second fiddle. He also
was getting tired of all of the projects
and demands made upon them as a
team and wanted to spend more time
at home.
After 10 years the most successful
comedy team of all time called it
quits.
Soon after the breakup with
Lewis, Martin landed a role in "The
Young Lions." His work was
referred to as "Magnificent,
Outstanding, Superb!"
Over the rest of his career Dean
starred in 35 more movies and made
cameo appearances in many more.
But he continued to sing. He never
quit singing. And on August 15,1964,
the Beatles lost control of the charts
to him.
The Number 1 song in the nation
was Dean Martin's "Everybody
Loves Somebody."
In 1965, "The Dean Martin" show
began on NBC, and it was one of the
highest rated shows of the 1956-66
season. Dean's contract with NBC
was only for one year, but NBC was
so desperate to keep him they made
him an offer he couldn't refuse.
His first year contract paid him
$40,000 an episode, but they upped
the ante for a three-year contract


which gave him $283,000 an episode;
and threw in shares of stock in NBC's
parent company, RCA. Even by
today's standards, Dean holds the
record of highest paid television star.
When you calculate the hours it took
to earn that much money, Dean put
in about eight a week.

My soon-to-be-15-year-old son,
Kyle, knows none of this. If fact,
before yesterday if you'd asked him
how he liked Dean Martin, he'd have
said, "Who?"
It was late Sunday afternoon, that
sad time for me to take him back to
Bradenton. Hanging just above the
horizon, the sun was huge and bright
red, making wispy white clouds
blaze with color.
As Kyle was putting on the head-
phones for his iPod, I slid in a Dean
Martin CD. When "Everybody Loves
Somebody" began to float out of the
speakers, Kyle hesitated, took off his
headphones. We listened to Dean's
laid-back version of Merle Haggard's
"I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I
Am."
After "Bumming Around" and
"I'll Be Seeing You" played, Kyle
started putting on his headphones
again. "Deep Purple" came on and he
leaned forward, the better to hear the
words.
When it was over, he turned his
head to look at me. "Who is that guy,
Dad? He's too cool. What a great
voice."
Besides wrestling and playing
football, Kyle plays in the orchestra,
and 1 wasn't surprised he knew a
great voice when he heard it, but 1
was impressed that he recognized the
King of Cool at first glance.

Rehbinder
Word has been received of the
death ,of Leona Mildred
Rehbinder, 91, who died in
Daytona Beach on Dec. 21, 2006,
after a brief illness.
Born in Geneva, Fla., on Dec.
10, 1913, she was a resident of
Fort Meade for more than 70
years. She was very active in
Eastern Star, Chapter 47, after
her initiation on Feb. 5, 1932.
Ms. Rehbinder, who never
married, was a graduate of
Florida Women's College in
Tallahassee (now Florida State
University). She worked as a
dietitian in several Ohio hospi-
tals before returning to Fort
Meade to work with her father,
Leo, who owned one of the first
Ford dealerships in Polk County.
After they sold the dealership,
they owned and operated a
restaurant and motel. Ms.
Rehbinder was an active member

ing as a vestry member, senior
warden, treasurer, secretary,
chairman of the Altar Guild, a lay
Eucharist minister and a dele-
gate to the annual diocesan con-
vention.

Help of Fort Meade, the local
United Way chapter, the Fort
Meade Chamber of Commerce,
the Polk County Volunteers and
Polk County Elderly Services,
and was a longtime member of

One of her most cherished
experiences was traveling as a
tourist to China in the 1960s, a
friend said.
For the past several years, she
lived in an assisted living facility
in Daytona Beach, to be near her
friend and caregiver, who
described her as "an intelligent,
passionate woman who served
her community and church and
who cared for her dad until his
death. She will be sorely missed
by her numerous friends." There
are no living family members.
A celebration of life was con-
ducted on Jan. 7, 2007, at Grace

where she was a member.
Interment was in the family plot

2007 Bartow Candidate Questionnaire


Adrian "A.J." Jackson


Gerald Cochran Rufus Stephens


1. Why are you running for
the city commission?









2. What makes you the best
qualified candidate in your
race?









3. What is the biggest prob-
lem facing city government,
and what do you propose to
do about it?







4. What is your opinion of
the performance of City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge and his
staff?










5. Beyond completion of
the Main Street redesign pro-
ject, how would you propose
to further enhance the ap-
pearance and economic
health of downtown Bartow?'


I love Bartow and I am deeply concerned about its
future. We are facing huge growth issues, and I think
the next several years will be critical and may offer
our last chance to get things right in terms of setting
the vision for who and what we want Bartow to be. My
family has lived in Bartow for four generations and I
am passionate about preserving the history and sense
of community that is unique to Bartow. If we allow the
current growth trends to destroy the charm and char-
acter of Bartow, it will be lost forever.

Leadership and experience. I served our country for
36 years in the U. S. Navy retiring last year as a two-
star admiral. I led large organizations, dealt with a va-
riety of challenging issues, and made tough decisions.
Above all, I consider myself to be a people person with
an established record of team building and open com-
munication. I believe those qualities are essential to
leading the city of Bartow, and I will serve our commu-
nity with the same level of dedication and commitment
with which I served our nation.


It is difficult to point to one issue as being the great-
est because so many issues are inter-related. Overall, I
would say quality of life to include growth manage-
ment, public safety, infrastructure maintenance, rec-
reation, and economic development. I intend to ad-
dress some major traffic issues and work to ensure
that our comprehensive plan and land development
codes exceed the minimum standards set by Florida
Statute. The bottom line is that we must preserve the
quality of life that our current residents enjoy.


I don't think this is the proper forum to rate job per-
formance. I will do that as a sitting commissioner with
all the data available at evaluation time. My personal
experience tells me we have a responsive, service-ori-
ented staff and the city manager has done a credible
job of managing the budget and day-to-day operations.
But we should always strive for improvement. The city
employee morale survey will help determine where all
concerned might achieve better communication and
improvements. We are fortunate to have so many city
employees who want to make a difference for Bartow
and I commend them.


I don't think there is a silver bullet or a quick fix.
First and foremost, we have to finish Main Street. No
one is going to invest in downtown as long as the con-
struction continues. We have a. lot of groups with the
same goal: CRA, DBI, and the Chamber of Commerce.
We need to synchronize the efforts to stimulate busi-
ness and encourage leadership from business minded
people. We need investment incentives, aggressive re-
cruiting, and use of the Internet among other things. I
think the pending report from the Buxton consulting
group should also be of help.


1. Bring honesty and accountability back to city gov-
ernment. Insist on better performance of all city em-
ployees. Lower utility bills. Elect the mayor of Bartow
other than appointment within the commission. Give
the citizens longer than five minutes to speak and
voice their opinion at city meetings. Put a cap on de-.
partment head salaries. Reduce city commission sala-
ries to $30 a month. Provide budget books and materi-
als to citizens who attend meetings and workshops at
no charge.

2. This is the 15th time over the years I have run
for city commission. I have attended most city commis-
sion meetings and workshops for more than 30 years. I
have studied the budget and voiced my opinion on
management and waste for years. The commission and
city manager do not have the majority of the peoples'
interest at heart. I do, and I will put the voice of the
people first over the developers' voice and their hous-
ing projects.



3. Money is the biggest problem facing all city gov-
ernments. Reduce wasteful spending and stay within
the budget. Stop paying interest on large loans the city
borrows. Reduce city employees that serve no purpose.
Stop hiring outside contractors to do city employees'
jobs. Stop leasing and buying new vehicles and equip-
ment all at one time. Stop hiring consultants and engi-
neers to be the work for city employees who are on
payrolls now.



4. I gave City Manager Joseph J. DeLegge a minus
10 the last several years out of 10. He has not im-
proved one bit over the years. He has very poor com-
munication with the citizens of Bartow. Doesn't stay
within budget. I would look for a new city manager
and replace his staff that has been hired to do the job
he is paid to do. He is not worth $100,000 salary a
year. Golf course still in red after 12 years of his man-
agement as city manager. Roads falling apart because
of poor supervision of paving contractors.




5. Appearance would be to take the Christmas
lights out of the oak trees. Take ropes and stakes off
oak trees. Paint the light receptacle a color to match
the flower beds. Replace a few larger business signs
with smaller ones. Economic health is to get more
shops for people to shop in.


5. I propose that we actively recruit thriving busi-
nesses that would a "good fit" for downtown Bartow
and encourage them to continue to work to enhance
the charm of downtown.


6. Do you support efforts I prefer low density, but I don't think a mandatory
to require lower density in "one size fits all" approach is the answer. Part of the
new Bartow subdivisions; if character and charm of Bartow is the variety and
so, where, and how do you uniqueness of our homes. My main concern is that
propose to bring it about? new construction be compatible and complementary to
surrounding neighborhoods. I dislike the cookie cutter
approach of many builders and I would support an
anti-monotony ordinance that cities like Plant City are
considering. I am also a proponent of the "smart
growth" concepts that limit sprawl and the associated
drain on resources in addition to protecting our green
space.



7. Do you support requir- I believe sewer lines should be mandatory in any
ing new subdivisions to con- new subdivisions as long as we do not exceed the ca-
nect sanitary sewer lines in- pacity of the treatment facility. This is another reason
stead of septic tanks? If so, for long range planning. As long as the capacity is
how would you propose to there, I will not vote to allow septic tanks. I consider
pay for them? the installation of sewer lines the responsibility of the
developer period. Developers should build to our
standards and not the other way around.



8. What is your position on I am opposed to limiting the opportunity for public
the city commission's poli- comment. We need more, not less, public comment in
cies on limiting the occasions city government. If a citizen is concerned enough to ap-
on which the public may ad- pear before the city commission then they should ex-
dress the commission on or- pect their concerns to be heard, whether it is a first
dinances in general and land reading or a fiftieth reading. I think the five-minute
use decisions in particular? limit for comments is reasonable since that does en-
sure that anyone present has the opportunity to speak.
Time is the cost of doing business in our style of city
government. I'll be there all night if that is what it
takes.


6. I support lower density in new Bartow subdivi-
sions. Two homes per acres to be the maximum for de-
velopment. Change the comprehensive plan and make
developers build to Bartow standards.










7. I say no to all septic tanks in all new develop-
ment. Make the developers pay for new sewer lines. If
not don't approve the project until the sewer lines are
installed to their development. Impact fees were sup-
posed to pay for that expense.


8. I think the city commission is wrong to limit any-
one the chance to speak only one time or any ordi-
nance. You should be able to speak on first and second
reading of all ordinances in general and land use deci-
sions in particular.


6. Before looking at the density issue, I think we
need to study the master plan, research the various
growth issues planned growth, smart growth, slow
growth, no growth and look at zoning and ordinance
which will allow us to be creative and innovative in
dealing with housing.








7. I support requiring subdivisions to connect to
sanitary sewer lines by perhaps tacking a fee of sorts
on the developers (included in the impact fee?)


8. The commissions policies appear to be working
"as is"; however, if there are future problems, we will
modify them accordingly.


Preserving the charm and character of Bartow is
one of my major goals. My travels throughout this
country and the world reinforced my belief that Bar-
tow is a very special place. We have a rich history and
sense of a bygone era that we cannot afford to lose.
Our heritage is who we are. Initiatives like the Cham-
ber's "Our history comes to life" is a step in the right
direction. We must continue to develop that theme and
infuse our schools, churches, and neighborhoods with a
sense of community pride that will perpetuate the
charm and character of Bartow.




We've got to start increasing ,the numbers of police-
men and firemen. The requirement for an additional
fire station has been documented since 1962. Street re-
pair and repaving must also be addressed. 1 would
first look for grant money, but I would also like to see
the commission more involved in the front end o' the
budget planning process than at the tail end. A top
down review of the budget and long term capital plan-
ning is essential. I think we could also get some inno-
vative cost saving ideas from the city employees if they
were properly challenged and rewarded.


9. To maintain character stop building too many
units per acre. Demand larger lot size. People will then
have room to park their ears in their yards instead of
the streets. Let people build their house of their choice
instead of telling them it doesn't comply to that neigh-
borhood. Stop making our parks look like prisons with
poles, crossties, P.V.C. pipes, fences. This is not charm.







10. Roads would be Number One. Maintain and up-
grade sewer and water lines in downtown Bartow. Up-
grade sewer and water plants to handle the new an-
nexed city limits growth and new developments. The
new impact fees from new development and city utili-
ties should pay for improvement. If not we have too
many city employees on the city payroll.


9. I propose to maintain Bartow's charm and char-
acter by acting as a liaison facilitator, advocate with
public and private companies to insure Bartow's
charm and small town character is maintained.










10. The city's greatest needs for capital improve-
ment should be to make better use of the downtown
area. This can be done by using multi-level buildings,
change zoning and developmental codes, etc. To ensure
multi-use building in order to bring more people down-
town on a consistent continuous basis thereby enhanc-
ing the feasibility of downtown. I propose to pay for
the city's greatest needs for capital improvements
through grants, T.I.F.'s and other incentives.


1. I am running because I know I can bring addi-
tional progressive, positive and effective leadership to
the city commission.








2. My life experiences make me the best qualified
candidate; I have been a teacher, assistant principal,
military officer, entrepreneur; my civic involvement as
chairperson of CRA and West Bartow Front Porch
Council has prepared me in all facets of board interac-
tion. All.of these have prepared me to be the best
qualified candidate.





3. The biggest problem is a lack of focus on major is-
sues such as a job market that will create jobs and im-
prove Bartow's economy by facilitating well paying op-
portunities from new and existing wealth creating
business; thereby, improving the community's finan-
cial base and its quality of life and the workforce. I
would create an economic development department
which would recruit, retain and work with existing
businesses to insure that Bartow continue to grow.



4. I am not presently in a position to fairly evaluate
Mr. DeLegge's job performance at this time.

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, abd 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 IHanrden Boulevard; for West
Pretreat I ond, appioxiisatoly 800 feet northeast
of tile 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 the flooding
sources) cited above.
West Wet Pond
Location: Approximately 1,000 feet northeast
of the intersection of Drane Field Road and CSX

to nearest whole foot
Under the above-mentioned Acts of 1968 and
1973, the Mitigation Division must develop crite-
ria for floodplain management. To participate in
the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP),
the community must use the modified BFEs to
administer the floodplain management mea-
sures of the NFIP. These modified BFEs will also
be used to calculate the appropriate flood insur-
ance premium rates for new buildings and their
contents and for the second layer of insurance
on existing buildings and contents.
Upon the second publication of notice of
these changes in this newspaper, any person
has 90 days in which he or she can request,'
through the Chief Executive Officer of the com-
munity, that the Mitigation Division reconsider
the determination. Any request for reconsidera-
tion must be based on knowledge of changed
conditions or new scientific or technical data. All
interest parties are on notice that until the 90-
day period elapses, the Mitigation Division's
determination to modify the BFEs may itself be
changed.
Any person having knowledge or wishing to
comment on these changes should immediately

CHANGES ARE MADE IN DETERMINATIONS
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 and hydraulic analysis were per-
formed to incorporate detailed topographic infor-
mation for Blackwater Lake at approximately
2,600 feet north of the intersection of Fourth
Street and Avenue C; for Blackwater Ponding
Area No. 1 at approximately 2,000 feet north-
west of in the intersection of Fourth Street and
Avenue C; for Enclave Ponding Area No. 1 at
approximately 2,000 feet southwest of the inter-
section of Wells Road and Pheasant Drive;
along Channel A from the confluence with
Channel C to approximately 3,100 feet
upstream; along Channel B from the confluence
with Channel A to upstream of Old State
Highway 60; and along Channel D from the con-
fluence with Channel C to approximately 600
feet upstream. These analyses have resulted in
increases and decreases in SFHA width for
Blackwater Lake; Blackwater Ponding Area No.
1, Enclave Ponding Area No. 1, Channel A,
Channel C, and Channel D; decreases in SFHA
width for Channel B; and establishment of BFEs
for all the above-mentioned flooding sources.
The table below indicates existing and modified
BFEs for selected locations along the affected
lengths of the flooding sources) cited above.
Blackwater Lake:
Location: Approximately 2,600 feet north of
intersection of Fourth Street and Avenue C
Existing BFE (feet)*: None
Modified BFE (feet)*: 113
Blackwater Ponding Area No. 1:
Location: Approximately 2,000 feet northwest
of intersection of Fourth Street and Avenue C
Existing BFE (feet)': None
Modified BFE (feet)*: 110
Enclave Ponding Area No. 1:
Location: Approximately 2,000 feet south-
west of intersection of Wells Road and Pheasant
Drive
Existing BFE (feet)*: None
Modified BFE (feet)*: 117
Channel A:
Location: Just upstream of confluence with
Channel C Approximately 3,100 feet upstream
of confluence with Channel C
Existing BFE (feet)': None
Modified BFE (feet)*: 113
Channel B:
Location: Just upstream of confluence with
Channel A Approximately 50 -feet upstream of
confluence with Channel A
Existing BFE (feet)*: None
Modified BFE (feet)": 109, 110
Channel C:
Location: Upstream of Old State Highway 60
Approximately 3,600 feet upstream of Old State
Highway 60
Existing BFE (feet)*: None
Modified BFE (feet)*: 99, 110
Channel D:
Location: Just upstream of confluence with
Channel C Approximately 600 feet upstream of
confluence with Channel C
*National Geodetic Vertical Datum, rounded
to nearest whole foot
Under the above-mentioned Acts of 1968 and
1973, the Mitigation Division must develop crite-
ria for floodplain management. To participate in
the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP),
the community must use the modified BFEs to
administer the floodplain management mea-
sures of the NFIP. These modified BFEs will also
be used to calculate the appropriate flood insur-
ance premium rates for new buildings and their
contents and for the second layer of insurance
on existing buildings and contents.
Upon the second publication of notice of
these changes in this newspaper, any person
has 90 days in which he or she can request,
through the Chief Executive Officer of the com-
munity, that the Mitigation Division reconsider
the determination. Any request for reconsidera-
tion must be based on knowledge of changed
conditions or new scientific or technical data. All
interest parties are.on notice that until the 90-
day period elapses, the Mitigation Division's
determination to modify the BFEs may itself be
changed.
Any person having knowledge or wishing to
comment on these changes should immediately

Attorney General, Jim Walter Homes


Reach Agreement on Sales Practices


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum's office
has reached an agreement with
Tampa-based Jim Walter Homes,
Inc., addressing misleading repre-
sentations about construction
times for new homes and the
builder's unresponsiveness to sev-
eral consumer complaints.
The company, a leading builder
of new homes, agreed to modify
their sales practices and proce-
dures for handling consumer com-
plaints.
"Construction .companies must
be responsive to their customers,"
McCollum said. "This agreement
is an important step toward keep-
ing customers fully informed
about the length and nature of


the construction process as well
as the specific terms of the con-
tracts they are signing when pur-
chasing their new homes."
The Attorney General's
Economic Crimes Division began
investigating the builder in April
2006 after receiving numerous
consumer complaints that focused
primarily on claims that new
home construction had not been
completed in the time frame buy-
ers were told. Jim Walter Homes
fully cooperated in this investiga-
tion, McCollum said. The builder
has resolved most of the com-
plaints and is in the process of
resolving the remaining issues.
Under the agreement, the
builder will modify its sales prac-


tices to disclose conditions that
delay or impact construction.
Additionally, salesmen will no
longer quote construction start or
completion times for the home
during the sales process.
The agreement also provides
that if a construction contract is
delayed past a certain length of
time, which may vary on a case-
by-case basis, consumers will be
furnished with written updates
on the status and a timetable of
future construction tasks.
Jim Walter Homes will reim-
burse the state $45,000 for the
costs of investigation, which
revealed that the builder was
impacted by the 2004 and 2005
hurricane seasons and other fac-


tors, which increased the average ,
construction time to approximate
ly 18 months from the contract
date.
Jim Walter Homes will main-
tain its toll-free hotline number,
1-800-925-8374, to address cus-
tomer service inquiries. Any con-
sumer lodging a complaint
through this hotline is entitled to
a response within three business
days.
A copy of the agreement is

Simmerlin Judo Seizes YMCA Synchro Swimmners

Medal At Nationals Take Awards at Invitational


Summerlin Judo took five elite
players to the National Middle
School/High School Judo
Championships held on March 24
at Florida International
University in Miami.
Four of the five earned a top
five placing in their division.
"All our kids stepped up their
game," said Head Coach Brian
Germain. "It is good to see the
kid's, progress displayed at a
national event".
"I was especially impressed
with Eric Wortman (53 kg,
Rochelle Middle School). He over-
came a controversial call that cost
him his first match.
"Like a champion, though, he
put it behind him, got even more
determined, and won his next
three matches to secure a
bronze," he said. "He displayed a
lot of poise on the mat in his
comeback. I feel it is just a matter
of time before he is a serious con-
tender for the gold at future
national events".
Katie Germain (44 kg,
Lakeland Highlands Middle
School) took a bronze also.
"What makes me even more
proud of these two kids is that
they were also named Academic
All-Americans," he added.
Katie Germain holds a 3.87
GPA while Wortman's GPA is
3.14.
Rounding out the team's per-


formance was a fourth place fin-
ish from Johnny Purvis (70+ kg,
Bartow Middle School), and a
fifth place finish from Mike
Kowalczyk (64 kg, Bartow Middle
School).
Also competing was Dallas
Gobble (90 kg, Summerlin
Academy).
"Dallas was impressive with
his determination. He has only
been in judo for seven months
and really wanted to compete at a
national event," Coach Germain
said. "He even insisted on signing
up to compete against the visiting
number one high school team
from Japan.
"He definitely got his fair
share of experience at this event.
I can see already that with his
determination he is going to
develop into a very tough player
in the future".
Summerlin Judo now turns its
attention to the Florida State
Championships in May and then
the Sunshine State Games in
June.
"Judo is a year round sport"
said Coach Germain. "If you're
willing, and most true aspiring
champions are, there is always
going to be another competition
opportunity around the corner.
"Little by little I want people
to know that here in Bartow at
Summerlin Academy we are pro-
ducing some future judo greats."

The Lakeland Thunderbolts
(4-1) defeated the Florence
Phantoms (1-4) Friday night in
Florence 54-18.
This was the second meeting
between these two teams. The
Thunderbolts beat the
Phantoms 69-25 in the season
home opener.
"Our defense had another
outstanding game," Head Coach
Teddy Keaton said.
"We had a solid performance
from the defense tonight. The
defense shut down the Phantom
offense in the second half," said
defensive coordinator Pat
Dooley.
"Our defensive line was awe-
some especially in the second
half. Larry Thompson also had
another outstanding perfor-
mance with four interceptions."
Thompson is leading the
team with 10 interceptions in
four games. Defensive back
Daimen Demps also had an
interception and Jermaine
Blakely recovered a fumble
leading to a touchdown.
Quarterback Aso Pogi had a
great night throwing six touch-
down passes.. 'A.J. Bennett
caught four. Octavius Day and
Don Robinson each had one.
Running back Marvin "Boogie"
Brown rushed. for one touch-
down his fourth this season.
"The offense was able to put a
lot of points on theoboard but I
am concerned we failed to score
4 times inside the red zone" said
offensive coordinator Kenny
Johnson.
"We were able to play many
of our young players giving us
the opportunity to evaluate
them and letting them gain
valuable playing experience,"
Johnson said.
"Having an open week will
allow our injured players the
VP"t


time to heal. We are banged up
and the extra time should allow
us to get back to full strength,"
Keaton said.
The Thunderbolts next game
is on the road against the
Danville Demolition on April 5.
Due to the Phantom statis-
tics computer crashing during
the game no statistics were
available.

More About Beatrix Potter


Her diary
Beatrix Potter was a very private
person. At age 15, she invented a
secret code for her diary. She
recorded in it daily for years.
This code was so good that other
people were not able to break it until
years after her death.
Her books
At first, Beatrix had a hard time
finding a publisher for her first book,
"The Tale of Peter Rabbit." Many
that she sent it to turned it down.
But Beatrix did not give up, and a
publisher, Frederick Warne, decided
to publish it.
