'Wanted' Artist


Beauty To Loca


-By PRISCILLA PERRY
Staff Writer

SThis cowboy's ride is brown -
a. Ford Mercury that carries his
wares.
And the music he listens to
just may be country western or
classical whatever fits the
mood as the tape player on the
hood inspires him to work a little
longer on a hot day.
He has a Clint Eastwood
squint to his eyes and fits his tall,
lanky self into boots splashed
with the colors of his trade. Hat
pulled down to an angle to keep
the afternoon sun at bay, he
dresses the part. He's a cowboy,
and can tell the tales to prove it.
"My heart is in the West," he
throws over his shoulder.
That may be true, but he's cer-
tainly a "wanted" man all over
these parts.
To add to this list of puns, one
could say he's a "quick draw" to be
dealt with on his own terms.
James Camp, known for his
murals in Bartow and Fort
Meade, was born in 1940, but has
a youthful grin and a twinkle in
those crunched up eyes of his.
It's those eyes that see a
palette on every building, wall or
fence, and it doesn't matter how

With Soliciting Student Online

Man Charged With Killing Ospreys


Travis Dale Grace, 34, of
Bartow, was arrested last week
by a Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
officer on charges of shooting and
killing two adult ospreys.
The birds of prey were build-
ing a nest in a tree in Grace's
yard. Both birds died from
wounds from a .17-caliber pellet
rifle Grace used to shoot them,
investigators said.
Grace told neighbors he shot
the birds because he was
annoyed by the sounds the birds
made, according to the FWC
report, and he was concerned the
Spanish moss the birds used to
line their nest would kill the
trees in his yard..
Ospreys are protected under
the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
FWC Officer Lee Birge charged
Grace with two counts of taking a
migratory bird, a second-degree
misdemeanor punishable by a
maximum $500 fine and 60 days
in jail for each count. The air rifle
Grace used was seized as. evi-
dence. The FWC will seek addi-
tional restitution for veterinary
services.


Late Thursday, April 19, a
neighbor of Grace called FWC to
report an injured bird, which she
took to local wildlife rehabilitator
Joan Waters. Waters drove the
badly injured bird to veterinari-
an Dr. Thomas Schotman in Lake
Wales for treatment. Schotman
determined the internal injuries
from the pellets were too severe
for the bird to survive. The vet-
erinarian euthanized the osprey.
While Birge gathered evidence
in the first incident, Grace
allegedly shot and killed a second
osprey early Monday morning,
April 23, over the objection of a
neighbor. Bartow Police and
Birge responded to a neighbor's
call. Birge interviewed Grace,
charged him and took him to jail.
Grace was released late Monday
on $500 bond.
Both Schotman and Waters
have extensive experience treat-
ing injured wildlife. Schotman
regularly donates his services,
treating injured wildlife without
compensation since the 1980s.
Waters runs a non-profit wildlife
rehabilitation center in
Auburndale that subsists entire-

ly on private donations.
Barfow Fire Department pro-
vided a ladder truck to the FWC
to inspect the osprey nest for
young or eggs. None were found.

A former karate teacher at
Summerlin Military Academy
was arrested Thursday after Polk
County Sheriffs Computer
Crimes detectives discovered he
was using a computer to solicit a
child.
Theodore Kaine Thorner, 32, of
Lakeland, was booked into the
Polk County Jail on six .felony
counts of use of a computer to
solicit or seduce a child. Each of
those charges carries a $20,000
bond. Thorner also was charged
with one count of receiving .com-
puter statements for the purpose
of sexual conduct with a minor.
Thorner is a karate teacher at
Martial Art Health Center in
Lakeland, which was under con-
tract to provide instruction at
Summerlin Academy.
Investigators said Thorner had


The National Civic League
named Polk County as one of 21
national finalists for the All-
America City Award, which the
organization calls America's orig-
inal and most prestigious commu-
nity recognition.
Since 1949, the award has hon-
ored communities of all sizes for
their outstanding partnerships
and efforts in addressing critical
local issues.
Polk County was acknowl-
edged for addressing some of the
community's most important
needs, through these programs:
Hurricane Heroes -
Hurricane Heroes campaign mar-
kets Polk County to the thou-
sands of out-of- county electric
company line workers, insurance
adjustors and FEMA staff who
assisted with the 2004 hurricane
recovery.
This initiative has helped
increase sales of overnight accom-


six conversations online with a
16-year-old female student from
Summerlin Acaademy over a two-
week period, and that he solicited
the girl to have sex with him.
The girl reported the incidents
on April 5, and an investigation
was started. The Polk County
School Board terminated the con-
tract with Martial- Art Health
Center on that same day.
Detectives seized Thorner's
computer and, during their inves-
tigation, located the, online con-
versations. A warrant for his
arrest was issued Thursday after-
noon, and he was taken into cus-
tody without incident. His bond
was set at $20,000 for each of the
seven charges.
Summerlin Academy is a mili-
tary school of choice for grades
nine through 12, located at


modations, generated record
tourism tax revenues, and
enhanced Polk County's tourism
and economic climate.

nation through community com-
mitment, asking residents to
assume ownership of a park by
signing an adoption pledge to
care for and maintain park facili-
ties.
Park Partners also has devel-
oped a system by which plants
can be propagated, planted and
maintained solely through com-
munity volunteers with programs
such as Backyard Nurseries,
Schoolyard Nurseries, Boot Camp
Nursery, "how to" clinics, pre-
ferred customer discounts, and a
plant delivery network.

cation to teens through school
and community based events.
Its mission is to educate teens
and encourage them to set
healthy goals and make appropri-
ate and responsible choices. The
team members, students ranging
in ages from 10 to 19 years, also
advise the Teen Pregnancy
Prevention Alliance on many
aspects of their work and give a
voice to the unique perspective of
Polk's teens.
Communities that earn the
All-America City title realize sev-
eral benefits, including national
recognition, greater civic collabo-
ration, and economic stimulus.
The award recipients will be
selected in June after each final-
ist presents its innovative pro-
grams, along with their local solu-
tions, to a jury of national busi-
ness, government and nonprofit
leaders.

Class of '57

Reunion Is

This Weekend
Summerlin Institute's Class of
1957 will hold its 50th class
reunion this coming weekend in
Bartow.
Those wishing to attend Friday
night, Saturday brunch at 10 a.m.,
or Saturday night's event from 6 to
7 p.m. at the Peace River Country
Club, are asked to call Sally
Hughes Putnam at 533-7829, or
Gerty Walker Thompson at 533-
3242, by Wednesday morning.


Family reunions dotted the Fort
Meade area the weekend of April 21,
and the forecast is for more to head
that way throughout the spring and
summer months.
Relatives wheeled in from across
the nation as they enjoyed memories
and home-cooking with people they
had not seen in at least a year..
The Martins met under the small-
er pavilion at the Fort Meade Outdoor
Recreation area.
Howard Martin, 83, the patriarch
of the family, came in from Kentucky
and visited with cousins and younger
generations that descend from the
family roots that settled in the
Tilghman area south of Fort Meade.
A large poster on the wall showed
some family lines and photographs of
his parents and relatives.
There also was a picture of
sawmill in Tennessee.
"Everybody said to move to Florida
because there were more trees to
work," Martin said.
His family loaded up the sawmill
on a barge and took it down the


Tennessee River to the Gulf and
around to Charlotte Bay. They had
been told Peace River was deep and
could handle the barge well. And it
did, Martin said, until the men got to
Torrey, where they had to manually
push and pull the barge as far as
Paynes Creek.
They had originally planned to go
farther up the river, but when they
dragged bottom, they decided they
had gone far enough and it took them
four months to get that far. So they
decided to settle in Tilghman.
The Martin family included five
generations at the reunion.
Howard Martin headed the gener-
ation chart, followed by Julia
Simmons Broome, Susan Coker, Kelly
Eggers, and Austin Eggers. Again
with Howard Martin as the head,
there was Julia Simmons Broome,
Rubye Main, Christine Brown, and
Trinity Brown.
Across town, another reunion was
enjoying the same kind of family tra-
ditions.

Youth Villa Turns 50


It's hard to believe, but the
Florida Sheriff's Youth
Ranches have been around for
a long, long time. With its
beginnings in Live Oak as a
single cottage of 20 boys, it has
grown to include four residen-
tial child-care campuses and
two camps helping to restore
hope, fulfill dreams, and
prepare boys and girls for
the future.
This year the organiza-
tion is celebrating its 50th
anniversary, and to com-
memorate the event,
memberships are avail-
able to those wishing to
get involved with'the :
ranches.
"For the first time we
want to offer a $50 club
membership to anyone
wishing to contribute to
the Florida Sheriff Youth
Villa Ranches," long-time '
Youth Villa Ranches sup-
porter Wally Edwards
said.
Edwards was one of the
first ranchers to benefit
from the agency. He grad-
uated while living at the "
Florida Sheriffs Youth "
Ranch, and was the first
rancher to go to college.
He even married his


sweetheart in the ranch
chapel.
This year Edwards is at the
helm of the committee that
organizes the Florida Sheriffs
Youth Villa Classic, which is
the longest running benefit for
the Florida Sheriffs Youth
Ranches. Last year, as interim


chairman, Edwards oversaw a
revamping of the golf tourna-
ment.
With a goal that made his
committee gasp, Edwards
made the challenge for this
year a $50,000 goal to cele-
brate the 50th year of the
Florida Sheriffs Youth
Ranches. In order to
reach the goal, Edwards
has implemented the $50
Club so everyone can
become involved in this
effort.
To become a $50 Club
Member, send in your
name, address and a
check or money order for
$50 to Florida Sheriffs
Youth Ranches, 907 N.
Wilson Ave., #313,
Bartow, 33830.
Club members will
receive a 50th anniver-
sary button, and a listing
in local media as a club
member.
Contributions also are
still being accepted for
sponsors, $2,500; and
Patrons, $350. For more
information, contact
Edwards at Ray Willis &
Associates, Inc., 534-
1591.

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

A 100-Quid Bet Worth Winning


When I was a kid, Dad would
always buy the maximum
amount of flight insurance when-
ever he got on an airplane.
They had coin-operated insur-
ance machines in the airport; for
25 cents, you could buy a certain
increment, maybe $1,000. Seems
like he always bought the maxi-
mum, which I believe was
$10,000.
You mailed the policies to your
beneficiary, and happily, Dad
usually got home before the life
insurance policies arrived in the
mail.
I grew up thinking this was the
responsible thing to do, until
somebody pointed out that buy-
ing flight insurance is betting
against yourself that the plane
will crash. I haven't bought a
flight insurance policy since then.
This rite of passage from my


youth was brought to mind by a
story about a 90-year-old man in
Great Britain who placed a bet of
about $200 (it was 100 pounds, a
denomination which those of us
on this side of the pond can never
figure out) that he would live to
be 100. The odds were 250-to-1
against him.
A few days ago, he collected
$50,000 on his bet.
Alec Holden is a retired engi-
neer, and he plays chess every
day.
The Washington Post reported
that at the age of 90, he told the
British Broadcasting Agency that
he "was going to live forever."
Not wanting to let an opportu-
nity like that slip through his fin-
gers, he went to a bookmaking
firm called William Hiss and bet
100 quid on his reaching 100. The
bookie firm quoted him odds of


250-to-1, which makes me won-
der how the bookies figure that
people make it to 100. Strikes me
that making it to 90 with enough
faculties to be able to play chess
every day is a pretty good omen.
Holden said that in the few
days before the odometer turned
over on 100 years, he was extra
careful. At the age of 66, I find
myself becoming a little more
careful each day, and I don't even
have a wager on my own
longevity.
So as an Old Guy in Training, I
salute Alex Holden, chess player
and retired engineer, not only for
making 100, but for betting on -
not against himself to make it.
I only have one question:
What does a 100-year-old guy
whose 'biggest vice is playing
chess all day do with an extra
$50,000?


Local Government Budget


Cuts Must Make Sense


The handwriting on the wall .is fairly
clear that the Florida Legislature will
require local governments to roll back part
of the windfall in ad valorem taxes that has
resulted from the Florida land value boom
of the last few years.
Although we doubt this is why the legis-
lators are doing it, this is the course of
action that we proposed as they convened
in Tallahassee.
As a general rule, we believe that the
annual growth of local government bud-
gets should be 'kept at the rate of inflation
plus the percentage of'populatiorn growth:
With land values rising in double digits
while the rate of inflation has been in the
three to four percent range for the past few
years, local governments have reaped a
bountiful harvest of ad valorem taxes that
is without precedent in recent history.
Taxpayers demanded relief, and lawmak-
ers, in campaigning for office, promised it.
Already, city and county officials
throughout the state are predicting dire
results if the Legislature follows through on
its plan to require a partial rollback of the
property tax rate. They have only them-
selves to blame.
If they could provide adequate govern-
ment services five years ago for a given-
amount of money, but now discover they
can't get by without a double digit annual
budget increase, government either was
S spending too little money a few years ago,
or is spending too much today.
We recall no taxpayer clamor to increase
government spending a few years ago, so
we suspect that the level of spending was
about right.
If the Legislature follows through on its
tax relief plans, taxpayers should insist that
cuts be made in the right places. It doesn't
always happen that way.
We recall a number of years ago when
Polk County commissioners directed the
county manager to reduce expenses, the
first cut was made in mosquito control.
Although the money spent for that service
is a minuscule part of the county's total
budget, cutting mosquito control assured


Supreme Court rulea: No partialebirth abortfo's,


that the public would, quite literally, feel
county government's pain.
There are other programs far less popular
that could have been reduced, but the one
that was selected was one that was certain
to produce reaction from the public.
As city and county governments look for
ways to respond to the likely state man-
date, the places. to look first for cuts are (1)
large, less than vital programs, and (2) areas
of the budget that have been expanded as a
result of the windfall in property taxes.
CuttimtagEht office that has two employees
'to only)'one employee will result in a dra-
matic loss of service; cuts should be made
in the largest areas in the budget.
As a general rule, we have sided with
local governments in their complaints
about "unfunded mandates" from the
Legislature. Over the years, the Legislature
has required local governments to fund
new programs, or to take over funding of
programs previously paid for by state tax
dollars.
But the property tax reduction mandate
is reasonable.
It is the responsibility of local officials,
both elected and appointed, to make intelli-
gent reductions in local budgets. The tax-
payers ... and voters ... should accept
nothing less.

INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD

The Irony of Elvis (Part 2)


Because Elvis Presley's
appearance was so different from
his peers, he was considered an
oddity, a rebel.
At Memphis's Humes High
School, which Elvis attended
from 1948 to 1953, most boys
wore flat-top haircuts, jeans, and
plaid shirts. But Elvis wore his
light-brown hair long with side-
burns down to his earlobes (he
dyed it black when he started
making movies), pink shirts, and
thin, baggy, black slacks. He often
took his guitar to school.
Occasionally he was asked to
sing and he never turned down
an opportunity to do so. In his
senior year he won first place in
the annual talent show.
Elvis might have looked like a
rebel, but he wasn't. He was
quiet, shy, insecure, and unfail-
ingly polite. Despite his good.
manners, his appearance brought
him much ridicule and made him,
a target for bullies.
One time, six jocks, their scalps
shining in the overhead light, cor-
nered Elvis in a hallway bath-

room. Five of them held him as
the sixth pulled out a pocketknife
to cut his hair. Red West, who
later became a member of the
"Memphis Mafia," came in just in
the nick of time and crashed the
party, and Elvis kept his hair.
Elvis had fans even before he
became famous. Knox Phillips,
son of Sun Studio owner Sam
Phillips, remembers that Elvis
used to come to their home on
occasion to play pool. Knox, 9 at
the time, and his 6-year-old
brother, Jerry, thought Elvis was
the coolest thing they'd ever
seen.
"Just the way he'd pad around
the pool table with that slinky
kind of grace that you'd see on
stage made us want to imitate
him," Knox said in an interview.
"We started wearing our hair like
Elvis's right away and when
we bought our clothes at
Lansky's, we had black velvet
added to the top of our sports
coat lapels just so we could
look a little more like him."
And that was before "That's
All Right, Mama" tore
through the Memphis
airwaves making
Ad Elvis an instant local
sensation. Knox
Phillips remembers
Greater the night his father,
Sam Phillips, brought
worship home a 45 RPM press-
ryof the ing of "That's All
nis Club Right" and "Blue
orida Eye Moon of Kentucky."
[osaic "I'd never seen my
.dminton; dad so excited," Knox
edia/Gus says. "He wanted my
rts. mother and Jerry and
re able to me to hear it right
an event away. I don't remem-
f our par- ber if he'd played us
Is, volun- the acetate first, but
support the sight of that little
yellow label going
round and round on
our vinyl-covered
black-and-white high


fidelity record changer, the sound
that was generated by that Sun
45, and the sheer excitement on
my father's face, as if this was the
summation of everything he had
been working for for so long, as if
this was the differentness that he
had been preaching. I can't
divide it, it's all encapsulated in
that one moment. And in that
moment, I think, everything
changed."
Sam Phillips took the acetate
of "That's All Right" to Memphis
disk jockey Dewey Phillips (no
relation to Sam). Dewey's show,
Red Hot & Blue, was the first
major radio show by a white disk
jockey to play rhythm and blues;
Dewey integrated the airwaves in
1952. He also has the distinction
of being the first DJ ever to play
an Elvis Presley record.
When "That's All Right" hit
the airwaves for the first time that
historic evening in June 1954,
Dewey's phone lines were
jammed with calls asking about
the singer and wanting to hear
the song again. Dewey claims to
have played the song no less than
12 times that night.
But 18-year-old Elvis was
unaware of the commotion he
was causing. He was so nervous
about his song being played on
the air, and so afraid it would
flop, that he went to a movie and
sat through several showings of
the same film. When the theater
closed, he drove home in his
Crown Electric truck, found his
mom and dad asleep, and went
to bed.
When the sun came up over
Memphis the next day, it shone
on the boy who would be king,
though in his wildest dreams he
could not have imagined the
heights of celebrity to which he
would ascend.

Polk County Teachers Receive Grants for

Collaborative Web Technology Projects


A team of Polk County teach-
ers worked together on collabora-
tive web/technology projects from
December 2006 through April of
2007 as part of a new grant
opportunity.
A benefit of the grant for
Alternative Certification
Education teachers was the com-
pletion of their state technology
accomplished practice #12 and
technology standards.
Participants had an initial
workshop and planning session at
the Jim Miles Professional
Development Center on Dec. 14.
Joined by Linda Robinson, Winter
Haven High School business
teacher and ACE technology
instructor, participants learned
how to navigate WEB Quest
Gardens, a building area website
for teachers.
Teachers also signed up for
shadowing/collaboration days and
the FETC conference. Teachers
returned from the conference and
participated in sharing and net-


working information about the
conference and their projects.
On Feb. 2, the teams met again,
to complete their web quests and
order materials that they used
along with the units of study.
Each lesson unit is a student-
data-driven project and matches
the curriculum each teacher is
teaching. Grant monies for the
project totaled more than $4,000.
During the final meeting on
the 10th, each team of teachers
shared their experiences with
members from Smith Barney
Citigroup partners and district
personnel. The Web Quest
Gardens website addresses and
lessons that were shared will be
displayed for other teachers to
access on the Polk Education
Foundation website at
www.polkeducationfoundation.or
g.
The evening of April 10 began
with a welcome and introduction
of the guests by executive director
for the Polk Education


Foundation, Susan Copeland, and
program manager Lou Ann
Bigsby. Following the opening, the
grant recipients were invited to
share their projects.
The presentations began with

DeMeza of Lake Gibson High
sharing their project dealing with
anatomy and physiology entitled
"Now Boarding: USS Hemo to the
Heart and Beyond," Sherryl
White of Mulberry High and Lori
Jenkins of Kathleen High devel-
oped "Vocabulary in the Real
World: A Teen's Perspective,"
Diane Conley of Fort Meade
Middle Senior High developed

Secondary School Principals and
underwritten by local community
schools and civic clubs.
It is felt the age of sophomores
is a critical time for decision-
making in the lives of youth. It is
important enough for Fort Meade
Middle High School to select
Rowell to represent the communi-
ty and to pay the $150 registra-
tion fee for the three-day seminar,
which will be held in Orlando,
May 4 to 6.
Rowell will become eligible as
a HOBY alumni to take advan-
tage of many organizations and
related youth programs that offer
benefits in the form of trips,
scholarships, discounts, and other
opportunities.

State Ag Museum Gets Funding For New Black Cowboy Exhibit


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agricultural Museum has
received $31,000 in funding from
the Division of Historical
Resources to mount a new exhib-
it, "Florida's Black Cowboys: Past
and Present," state Agriculture
and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced.
The permanent exhibit will
introduce visitors to the involve-
ment of black men and women in
Florida's cattle industry, past and
present, through text panels,
archival images, and appropriate
artifacts. Some images and text
will be collected during inter-
views with present-day African
American cattlemen.


The involvement of African
Americans in the state's cattle
industry is a little-known and
under-reported aspect of Florida's
history. The term "cowboy" was
introduced to America during the
18th century in coastal South
Carolina and specifically referred
to a black male slave who tended
cows.
Long before that, however,
African Americans, both enslaved
and free, served as ranch hands
and overseers on the large ranch-
es established by important
Spanish families connected to the
royal government of Florida.
Many Africans had experience in
tending cattle in their homelands
and interestingly shared an "open


grazing" approach to cattle rais-
ing with the Spaniards, who
introduced both cattle and
African Americans to the state.
Some free blacks ranched for
themselves but more frequently
they acted as drovers for herds
being moved into and out of the
state. Black participation in
Florida's cattle industry contin-
ued throughout the centuries
Florida's development. Today,
black men and women remain
important players in ranching
operations throughout Florida.
Cattle were first introduced to
Florida by Ponce de Leon on his
second voyage in 1521. The expe-
dition failed, and it seems unlike-
ly that the cattle survived.


When Pedro Menendez de
Aviles successfully established
his colony in 1565, he brought
with him 200 terneras, or bred
heifers. By the 17th century, the
largest of Florida's Spanish
ranches were coming into exis-
tence.
Throughout the colonial and
territorial periods, and the days of
early statehood, cattle remained a
crucial component of Florida's
economy and history. Even today,
in the face of development and
the loss of rural working lands,
the cattle industry remains a cor-
nerstone of Florida's agricultural
operations.
Phase One of the exhibit will
be completed over the course of


the next year. Funding is current-
ly being sought for Phase Two of
the project. Phase Two will
involve the production of a DVD
for possible distribution to televi-
sion stations and all public
Florida K-12 schools and 4-H
coordinators for inclusion in their
youth development and educa-
tional programs. The DVD also
will be added to Phase One of the
exhibit.
The museum is currently seek-
ing black men and women ranch-
ing in Florida today to interview
for inclusion in the exhibit. IF you
know anyone who would like to
participate, contact Bruce J.
Piatek, executive director, at 386-
446-7630 or send e-mail to famu-


seum@pcfl.net or piatek@pcfl.net.

Museum, part of the Department

The 2007 season for the
Bartow High School Lady
Jackets' softball team came to a
relatively early end when Naples
High School defeated the Bugs
Friday night 1-0 in the Class 4A,
Region 3 semi-final game at
Naples.
The Lady Jackets had been in
10 straight state championship
games before this year, winning
the last five in a row. It has been
an unprecedented run, and a tes-
tament to the dedication of the


Bartow

Women's

Golf
Bartow Women's Golf
Association had two tournaments
during the last few weeks.
Mandy Singletary won with
257 strokes in a championship
tourney. Martha Post came in
second with 268 strokes, Pat
Lowery came in third with 290
strokes, and Tracy Anderson
came in fourth with 317 strokes.
For the Divine Niners, Jane
Klitzing won with 165 strokes.
In the HDCP tournamnet,
Mandy Singletary won with 212
strokes. Pat Lowery came in sec-
ond with 221 strokes. Marth
Post, Mary Bourque, and Susan
Prevatt had a three-way tie for
third with 223 strokes. Yvonne
Cole came in sixth with 225
strokes.
For the Divine Niners, Mary
Jo Smith won with 116 strokes.


student-athletes, coaches, volun-
teers and fans of the program.
A good contingent of Lady
Jackets fans made the trip and
were treated to a hard-fought
game. Coach Glenn Rutnebar was
happy with the effort his young
bunch of Bugs put forth.
"It was a great game,"'
Rutenbar said in a telephone
interview. "The girls played hard.
We did a lot of good things offen-
sively."
SAnd their defense also did well.
"Candace (Howell) pitched great
- one of her best outings," the
head coach remarked. Howell


fanned six and allowed five hits.
According to Rutenbar, the
Naples team really didn't present
a scoring threat until the seventh
inning when they loaded the
bases. The Jackets got out of that
jam, but were unable to put any-
thing across the plate to take
advantage of the situation.
"Offensively, Naples' slappers
hurt us a little," Coach Rutenbar
quipped. "But they're tough -
they've only allowed 10 runs all
year. We had a couple of hits and
five base runners, so we did well.
I am not unhappy with the game
at all."


Dance and Cheer Camp
Sunshine To be Held in July


Angela Newell, owner of
Sunshine Celebrations, one of
Lakeland's event planning com-
panies, will host Camp Sunshine,
a non-competitive dance and
cheer camp, in July of 2007 at the
Lakeland Center.
Camp Sunshine is the first of
its size and caliber to be offered in
a non-competitive format in
Lakeland.
Registration is open to boys
and girls from kindergarten to
eighth grade and will provide a
learning experience for both the
seasoned dancer and the novice.

Bartow got two hits off Erin
"Big E" Foley and Rachael "Laser
Ray" Giddens.
The score was knotted at nada
all the way into the bottom of the
eighth, when Naples loaded the
bases and scored a run on a per-
fect bunt by Amanda Leiter.
So the Lady Jackets end their
season with a final record of 20-
10. It was a young team, with just
one senior on the roster, and will
hopefully return a more mature,
battle-hardened group next year.
The Bartow faithful can't wait!

In Jamestown We're Remembering ...


America's 400th Anniversary


Why it is so important
The people in Jamestown, Va., are
getting ready for a big weekend, May
11 through 13.
The event is the 400th anniversary
of the founding of the first English set-
tlement in America.
The story
After a voyage of more than four
months, three ships anchored at
Jamestown on May 14, 1607. A total of
104 men and boys came ashore.
This was 13 years before the Pilgrims
landed in New England. Experts
believe that Plymouth might not have
happened had it not been for the suc-
cessful settlement of Jamestown. .
Jamestown paved the way for future
British colonies.
A business trip
We might say that these sailors of
400 years ago were on a business trip.
They were sent by the Virginia
Company of London. The company
planned to make money for investors
by sending back gold, silver and other
products. The settlers didn't find gold
or silver. But their settlement was the
first step in the beginning of our coun-
try.
The Mini Page thanks Dr. James Horn,
author of "A Land As God Made It:
Jamestown and the Birth of America"
(Basic Books) and the vice president of
research at Colonial Williamsburg, for
help with this issue.


Jamestown Settlement is a living history
museum. Visitors can learn about life in
the 1600s. There are
life-size copies of the
three ships that
brought the first set-
tiers to the site. The
Susan Constant,
Godspeed and
Discovery are
anchored at the
Settlement to offer
visitors a chance to
learn about life on a
sailing ship 400
years ago.


As soon as the settlers
arrived, they started building
James Fort. Inside the fort
they built a church, store-
house and some houses.
For many years, people
,. ~ thought that the fort had
washed into the James
River. However, recently
archaeologists (people who
discover the past through
Digging) have discovered the
fort's outline and many arti-
facts (human-made items).



Jamestown matters
Jamestown was an experiment in
how to set up a colony. The settlement
was important for many reasons.
Ideas about our government can be
traced back to the orders of the
Virginia Company that the colony set
up a "general assembly" in 1619. The
idea was to provide "just laws for the
happy guiding and governing of the -
people."
Jamestown established English as
our country's first language.
Jamestown was the first successful
settlement to grow a money-making
crop. Tobacco brought trade, wealth
and colonists to America.
People from different backgrounds
- the English, Virginia Indians and
Africans lived in the same area.
Sometimes there were serious prob-
lems and even attacks, but they
learned to survive together.

1607, as well as the lifestyle of the
Powhatan Indians who had lived in
the area for thousands of years.

A statue of Pocahontas. She is shown
dressed as a young girl in a native
American dress.

Early life
The story of the "Indian princess"
Pocahontas is one of the most
famous in American history.
Pocahontas was the daughter of
the powerful Virginia Indian leader
Powhatan (POW-a-tan). He ruled
over many tribes in the area.
We know very little about her
early life.
When she was about 11 years old,
she met the colonists and John
Smith, one of the leaders.
He wrote about how she saved his
life. In the story, he said that the
natives were about to kill him: "She
got his head in her arms and laid
her own upon his to save him from
death."
Many people think he might have
just made up the story.


It might have been a way to test
John Smith and show that
Powhatan was in charge, but no one
knows for certain.
We really don't know how they felt
about each other. When they met in
London years later, she called him
"father."
Her later life
After John Smith returned to
England, Pocahontas was kidnapped
by the English. Her father agreed to
some demands, but the English did
not free her.
The English taught her to read
and write. She adopted the Christian
religion. She was given the new
name of Rebecca.
While a hostage, Pocahontas met
and married a tobacco planter, John
Rolfe. She was 18 at the time.
In an effort to encourage colonists
to come to Virginia, she and her hus-
band sailed for England in 1616.
Pocahontas died in England at
the age of about 21 of unknown
causes.


Pocahontas was an amazing young
woman. She and John Rolfe had one son
who later settled in Virginia.

The Virginia Indians cut young
trees to make poles to make frames
for their homes. Some houses had
shingles made of bark. Others were
covered with mats made of reeds. Light came in through
the smokehole at the top or through doors.
Women and children grew crops of corn, squash,
beans and pumpkins. Girls and women gathered wild
plants for food, medicines and materials to make houses.
Girls helped cook food and take care of the younger chil-
dren.
Every day, even in the winter, everyone bathed in
streams. Sometimes they had to break the ice first. Even
babies were bathed in icy waters to toughen them up.
Life wasn't all work. Storytelling was a favorite pas-
time. The Virginia Indians also enjoyed dancing and
singing.
Boys sat in the fields and used bows and arrows to
frighten away the birds. Boys learned to hunt and fish
like the men in their tribe.

Nancy Egloff of the Jamestown Settlement for help with this issue


The Virginia Indians
wore necklaces of
shells, teeth or bones.
Men and children
shaved part or all of their
heads. Both men and
women painted their
bodies with designs.
SWomen often tattooed
