Protests Lodged Over


Concrete Dust, DYL


Field Use Limitation


A State Road 60 businessman
urged Bartow city commissioners
to oppose a new business seeking
to locate across the highway, and
a boys' baseball coach urged the
city to require the Dixie Youth
League program to share the
DYL baseball complex with other
programs.
Robert Kincart of American
Compliance Technologies said a
new company across the highway
from ACT is in the business of
crushing concrete, and that the
activity is creating a major dust
problem in the area.
The business is just outside of
the city limits, and the county
has issued a notice of violation
because of the dust, he said.
He urged the city to oppose
allowing a concrete-crushing
plant to be built on the property.
Commissioners did not respond
to his request.
Eddie Pearce, a former DYL
coach who now coaches in anoth-
er youth program, asked the city
to require DYL to allow him to
use the city-owned fields for four
Sunday afternoons a year. He
said the league had turned down
his request to use the fields. He
said he is willing to pay rent for
use of the facilities.
Pearce told the commission
that three organizations have
been turned down in their appli-
cations to use the field.


City Atty. George Dunlap said
he would look into the matter.
In other business, commis-
sioners:
Noted complaints from resi-
dents about noisy roosters, and
about garbage collection prob-
lems on Shady Lane.
Approved an agreement,
retroactive to October 2002,
under which the city will pay
$59.64 per hour for bus service
provided to Bartow by the
Lakeland Area Mass Transit
District.
Noted City Mgr. Joseph J.
DeLegge's announcement that
the city will hold a hearing on a
proposal to use a newly-designed
logo on city vehicles. The city's
official seal, with a pineapple at
its center, will not be changed, he
said.
Proclaimed May 13 to 19 as
Police Week, and May 15 as
Peace Officers Memorial Day.
Reappointed Lloyd Harris
and Betty Faye Stidham to tie
library board.
Heard Gerald Cochran
report that he saw a city trash
truck without a tarp over its
load, and that restrooms, picnic
pavilions, and the entry road at
Mary Holland Park need better
maintenance.
Approved an application for
a $350,000 state grant to pay half


the cost of renovating the old
civic center (more recently the
Oaks School) as a city hall annex.
Approved an agreement
with the Florida Dept. of
Transportation under which the
city will be paid $170,996.25 over
the next three years for main-
taining rights of ways on high-
ways within the city limits.
Adopted a resolution to
obtain tax-exempt financing for
five police cars and five sanita-
tion department trucks for a total
of $926,446.
Passed an ordinance to
allow the Mayor's Youth Council
to have from five to 12 members.
Commissioner Leo Longworth
said next year's members should
be encouraged to attend meet-
ings regularly.
Passed an ordinance to sell
4.79 acres of city-owned land on
Woodlawn Avenue across the
street from Wildwood Cemetery
to Southern Holdings of Polk
County for $297,651.

Huff's report that all three mass
transit bus lines serving Polk
County will be combined into one
entity under Florida law.

meeting at 5 p.m. on May 21 to
discuss a lawsuit filed against
the city by Highland Cassidy
over development plans on E.F.
Griffin Road.


Man Accused of Kidnapping

At Bartow Daycare Identified


By JENNIFER STARLING
Staff Writer

Police have identified the man
they say took a woman hostage
at the Head Start Daycare
Center last week in Bartow.
Timothy Donald Douglas, 27,
is accused of armed burglary, kid-
napping, and aggravated assault
after he allegedly entered the
center on Martin Luther King,
Jr., Boulevard and Fourth
Avenue on Thursday afternoon,
and took a worker hostage.
Douglas had initially taken
two women hostage, police say,
but one of the hostages fled the
building without his knowledge.
Officers arrived on scene and
entered into negotiations with
Douglas, who said that he was
armed, but did not give further
details. Negotiations for release
of the hostage went back and
forth until the police heard a


woman screaming over the phone
line and through the walls of the
building.
Police rushed into the building
and found Douglas and the
woman wrestling on the floor.
The woman was extracted from
the fight and told to leave the
building, and Douglas was sub-
dued with a Taser.
Officers found Douglas armed
with a box cutter, a knife, and a
firearm.
Both hostages escaped with no
injuries. Children from the cen-
ter were away on a field trip at
the time of the incident.
Douglas, who said he had been
stabbed in the street prior to
entering the building, was taken
by police to Bartow Regional
Medical Center after the inci-
dent, where he was treated for
minor injuries.
He is currently being held in
Leon County for violating his


probation there, and also faces
charges of possessing cocaine and
resisting an officer without vio-
lence.

Undercover Drug Bust


Commission To Study 'Block Party' Rules


Just how restrictive does the
Bartow City Commission want to
be when it comes to regulating
neighborhood "block parties"?
Police Chief Erik Sandvik pre-
sented a list of 19 proposed rules
to the commissioners, and asked
that they decide which ones they
would like to impose.
The next step, he said, will be
to submit the ones selected by the
commission to City Atty. George
Dunlap for review.


The police department and city
commissioners have been receiv-
ing complaints about noise,
drinking, and rowdy behavior at
block parties, especially in East
Bartow.
The rules drafted by Sandvik
would, among other things:
Require a city permit for
block parties.
Allow permits to be issued
only for events sponsored by the
city, churches, civic groups, or


homeowner associations.
Require that parties end by
10 p.m.
Limit attendance to 50 par-
ticipants.
Require the consent of neigh-
bors before closing off a street.
Bar the serving of alcohol
without permission of the city
manager, and require one or more
security officers or police officers
to be present if alcohol is served.


Require that noise be kept to
"a reasonable level" and allow
police to break up a party for
excessive noise or other rowdy
behavior.
Prohibit block parties on
Sunday, except for events spon-
sored by churches or the city, or
Gospel events.
Allow the city to require a
$100,000 liability insurance poli-
cy and posting of a $100 clean-up
fee.


Commission Approves Jones Center Lease


Polk commissioners agreed to
continue leasing the Gill Jones
Center in Winter Haven as one of
three branch county offices.
The rental costs the county
$37,624 per month, a two percent
increase over the last contract.
Terry Pittman, facilities man-
agement director, said staff has
explored purchasing the building
and similar branch offices in Lake
Wales and Lakeland, but not yet
come to a decision.


A donation of land near the
Four Corners area may allow for
a branch office to be built, negat-
ing the need for the one in Winter
Haven, Pittman said.

ment agencies under one roof.

In both Lakeland and Lake

have been in dialogue with own-
ers, and have made headway with
willingness to sell, but in Winter
Haven, the hospital is looking to
sell the entire building, not just
the portion occupied by the coun-
ty.
In Winter Haven, the county
has five one-year lease options on
the building.


Undercover and under arrest
were..the results of Fort Meade
Police and Hardee County
Sheriff's Departments drug
sweep on May 1.
And it's not over. Police say
more arrests are expected in the
ongoing narcotic investigation.
Three members of a Fort
Meade family were arrested on a
variety of narcotic-related
charges, according to Fort Meade
Police Cpl. Steve Parker.
Fort Meade police officers,
along with detectives from the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
joined forces to investigate the
street-level sale of narcotics in
the Fort Meade area.
On Monday, May 7, the efforts
of that investigation produced
five arrests, including three
members of one family who
reside at 629 South Pine Ave.,
Fort Meade.
Arrested were:
Taka L. Smith, 29, charged
with three counts of sale of
cocaine within 1,000 feet of a
school or church..
Tabitha Smith, 31, charged
with sale of marijuana within
1,000 feet of a school or church.
Kenneth N. Smith, 42,


charged with sale of cocaine
within 1,000 feet of a school or
church.
Kenneth Smith also was
charged with possession of
cocaine after he was discovered
to be in possession of the illegal
drug at the time of his arrest on
the cocaine sale charge.
Sale of cocaine within 1,000
feet of a school is a first-degree
felony in Florida and carries a
minimum mandatory prison sen-
tence of three years. The narcotic
sales to undercover agents took
place within 1,000 feet of Anna
Woodbury Elementary School.
Two other individuals also
were arrested on possession
charges as a result of the investi-
gation:
Darrell Tyrone Miller, 37, of
Bartow, charged with possession
of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a
school or church, possession of
cocaine with intent to sell, and
resisting an officer without vio-
lence.
George David Thompson, 52,
of Fort Meade, charged with pos-
session of marijuana less than 20
grams.
All five individuals were taken
to the Polk County Jail.

Bartow police and firefighters honored James E. Stephens Elementary second-grader Jimmy Means

Then there's homework and find-

lead busy lives, and sometimes
those lives are just too busy.
Often, kids themselves drive
the schedule, not wanting to feel
left out or less involved than
their friends. Teens may feel the
need to boost their extracurricu-
lar activities in order to get into
the "right" college.
Other times, the parents may
do the pushing, wanting their
children to have a full range of
opportunities and not miss out on
classes or teams that are benefit-

resources, kids will just get in

Are they falling behind in school
work and suffering lower grades?
Are there stress-related health
complaints, like headaches and
stomach aches?
When you see problems, it's
time to limit activities. Start by
filling in a calendar with all the
current activities. You may be
surprised just how busy your
children are.
Accept that sometimes you
just have to draw the line and say
no. If an activity doesn't really
match your child's interests, age,
temperament and ability, why
schedule it?
Discuss with your children not
just what they want to do, but
why they want to do it and how
realistic it is. If the only reason
for an activity is because friends
are doing it, it might not be the


right choice for your child.
Are your children also aware
of the time that is needed for
some activities? Soccer is usually
not just a Saturday game, but
also twice a week practice.
Sit down with an over-sched-
uled child and discuss what's
happening and how it might be
possible to cut back. Kids need
free time away from organized
activities just to be able to relax,
to socialize with friends and to
blow off steam. Not much differ-
ent from the needs we all have,
right? So give your kids the free
time they need just to be kids.

4A The Polk County Democrat May 14, 2007


There was a time, not so long ago, when
there was a belief on the eastern side of
Polk County that the region was pretty
much forgotten in the county seat.
Under that paradigm, county govern-
ment believed that the county line ended
at U.S. Highway 27.
While the concept was overstated, we
would acknowledge that the Golden
Triangle of Bartow, Lakeland and Winter
Haven represented the preponderance of
political strength of Polk County, while
Lake Wales, Haines City, Dundee, Babson
Park, and Frostproof, and the other com-
munities east of Highway 27 didn't fare as
well.
That was the perception in Eastern Polk,
and as anyone with a basic understanding
of management principles is well aware,
perception not reality is what counts.
This perception was at least partially
founded in reality.
This perception, we believe, helped fuel
the creation of the Lake Wales charter
school system, which we predict will be a
model for charter schools throughout
Florida.
We sense that the perception has faded
-perhaps not disappeared, but at least
faded in recent years. The burgeoning
growth in the Four Corners area in north-
east Polk has attracted the attention of both
the Polk County Commission and the Polk
County School Board.
Plans for two new county health clinics
in Eastern Polk are one sign of the county
commission's commitment to the region.
Plans for new schools in the region echo
the school board's commitment.
That latest evidence of the county's com-
mitment to this rapidly growing area is the
establishment of a branch campus of Polk
Community College in the old city hall in
downtown Lake Wales.
The strength of the community college
system throughout Florida is its respon-
siveness to community needs, both in
establishment of curriculum to meet the
needs of the area served, and in making
classes available wherever needed, not just
on the primary campus.
PCC, with its primary campus in Winter
Haven, has a branch campus (shared with

Highland City and Eaton Park.
PCC's decision to establish its second
branch campus in Lake Wales is great
news not only for that community but for
Babson Park, Frostproof, and other com-
munities within a few minutes' commute.
The selection of the old Lake Wales city
hall as the site of this branch campus is a
welcome development not only for citi-
zens of Lake Wales, but for everyone who
shares the belief that preservation of our
heritage is preferable to knocking down
historic buildings and replacing them with
concrete, glass and steel.
This week, work begins on transforming
the two-story red brick building into
PCC's branch campus in Lake Wales, with
six classrooms plus administrative offices.
The building is classic Southern architec-
ture, but the hurricanes of 2004 took their
toll, placing the future of the building in
jeopardy.
The gnarly old oak in front of the build-
ing is a community landmark second only
to Bok Tower in its prominence. PCC offi-
cials have pledged to do everything possi-
ble to preserve it.
Progress sometimes involves not only
looking to the future, but looking to the
past, to preserve the best of yesteryear.
PCC's commitment to the historic city
hall, to Lake Wales, to Eastern Polk
County, and yes, to that wonderful gnarly
old oak is a welcome investment in Polk
County east of Highway 27.

What? Me Worried?


PCC's Lake Wales Campus


Is a Boon To Polk


One member of our staff used
to have a sign over her desk that
said: "My job is secure; nobody
else wants it."
She is gone, as is the sign; after
her retirement, somebody else
did.
While her sign was posted in
jest, American workers once
could assume, by and large, that
their jobs were reasonably safe, as
long as the supply of jobs and
job-seekers was generally in bal-
ance.
What we didn't take into con-
sideration is that there are folks
on the other side of the earth who
don't appreciate the Balance of
Nature when it comes to
American workers and jobs.
First, we fretted over migrant
workers taking jobs that, for the
most part, native-born Americans
weren't interested in doing. But
loss of jobs which entail all that
Climbing, bending and stooping
in agriculture didn't seem a
threat to the American worker.
And then it was "outsourcing"
of American jobs to foreign coun-
tries. Folks in many other coun-
tries are willing to work for less
money than Americans. There are
any number of reasons, including
lower costs of living, generally
coupled with lower standards of
living.
First manufacturing jobs, then
tech support, airline reservations,
and tax preparation. Little by lit-
tle, America began exporting her
jobs.
All of this is easy enough to
talk about in the abstract. Those

OUR READERS SAY

Coach Killets: A Real Leader


BARTOW Coach Shawn
Killets is a man of few words. So
when he speaks, people listen. He
has been the leader of the Bartow
High School football program for
the past four years.
He coached my two sons for
three of those four years. Now
because of Coach Killets, I have
one son who just finished his first
of college football and another
who just signed a letter of intent
to play next year.
They were not
"blue chip" athletes
and in many peo-
ple's eyes; they were
not even big enough
to play high school
football. Yet Coach
Killets saw through
their physical size
and recognized the ?L
size of their hearts.
With that they
excelled and now are
playing on
Saturday.
With Killets at the
helm, the Bartow
football program has
grown From 35
dressed on Friday
nights to around 50,
and the numbers are
continuing to grow.


He reminds me a lot of my late
father. He doesn't holler or
scream; he just leads his team and
his word is gold.
He had no home games this
past season and did not com-
plain. He just got his team ready
to play 10 travel games. Then 10
turned into 14 when he led his
team all the way to the State 3-A
semi-finals.
Coach Killets gave me as a
father one of the greatest gifts I


could ever receive. He gave me
the opportunity to watch my
boys play high school football on
Friday nights and then worked
overtime sending film to colleges
until both boys signed.
For that I will be forever grate-
ful to him, and I feel in my heart
that Bartow has a football coach
they can be proud of for many
years to come.

BRUCE D. EDMUND


local government is another.
Do we want to trust that
sacred responsibility to someone
whose understanding of
California culture consists of
watching a couple of Rose Bowl
parades and seeing Ahnold, the
Governator, on cable TV reruns?
The answer, at least from
pasadenanow.com, is "Uh-huh."
In Polk County, we sort of
double-team coverage of the Polk
County Commission, with Dawn
Wade attending the meetings,
and me watching on Polk
Government Television, com-
monly called PGTV. For extra
credit, we tape the shows.
We are all in the county seat -
Dawn at the meeting, me at my
office in Bartow a few blocks
away, and the VCR faithfully
recording in both my office and
her apartment.
So Dawn and I figure our jobs
are reasonably secure.
Jim Holton, my son-in-law, is
more cautious.
When he forwarded me the
story from (where else?) the
Internet, he did so with the
caveat that perhaps I shouldn't
make our corporate headquarters
at Sun Coast Media Group and
in particular my boss, David
Dunn-Rankin aware of this
development.
I'm not worried.
Not at all.
At least, I don't think I am.
David, should I be?
David...?
David...?

Ithaca, N.Y. "Celebrate
Urban Birds!" kicks off Thursday,
May 10, and continues through
the following months with antivi
ties such as gardening, bird
watching, art, and science. These
events will raise awareness about
birds in the city, and fuel scientif-
ic studies about how birds use
urban habitats. The project is
sponsored by the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology.
People of all ages and back-
grounds can participate, indepen-
dently or with the many local
organizations staging events in


conjunction with the celebration,
including schools, public gardens,
nature centers, museums, and
parks. Participants watch city
birds for 10 minutes and check off
15 target species of birds. The
information is then sent to scien-
tists at the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology by mail or online.
Everyone who signs up for this
free project at
www.urbanbirds.org/celebration
"tan download the Celebration kit
in English and Spanish, or ask to
receive one by mail. The kit
includes data forms for reporting


the species seen, a colorful urban
birds poster, educational materi-
als about birds and urban green-
ing, and a packet of sunflower
seeds to plant in pots and gar-
dens.
"It is vital that we understand
how birds are affected by avail-
able urban green spaces, includ-
ing parks, rooftop gardens, and
even potted plants on balconies,"
says project leader Karen Purcell.
"Bringing people's attention to
urban nature is essential for glob-
al conservation awareness and
efforts to help birds."

Celebrate Older Americans May Is Clean Air Month


With Healthy Activities


Department of Environmental
Protection's Florida Park Service,
in partnership with Florida
Department of Elder Affairs, is
celebrating May as Older
Americans Month.
The theme for 2007 is "Older
Americans: Making Choices for a
Healthier Future," which encour-
ages citizens to be proactive and
plan for the future.
"With more than 18 million
Florida residents over the age of
610 the Florida Park Service is
constantly working to meet the
recreational needs of this growing
population," said Florida State
Park Director Mike Bullock. "We
are enhancing park' programs
and facilities to create better
accessibility for all ages and abil-
ity levels."
Florida's state parks provide
ideal settings for older American
to take part in low impact
resource-based recreation.
Activities such as monthly bird
walks, gardening workshops and
guided nature walks encourage
older Americans in "Making


Choices for a Healthier Future."
An array of volunteer opportuni-
ties exist within the Florida Park
Service allowing older Americans
to become environmental stew-
ards and help preserve Florida's
natural beauty.
The first two-time Gold Medal
winner honoring the nation's best
state park service, Florida's state
park system is one of the largest
in the country with 160 parks
spanning more than 700,000
acres and 100 miles of sandy
white beach.
From swimming and diving in
Florida's rivers and springs to
birding and fishing or hiking and
riding on natural scenic trails,
Florida's state parks offer year-
round outdoor activities for all
ages. Battle reenactments and
Native American festivals cele-
brate' Florida's unique history,
while art shows, museums and
lighthouses offer a window into
Florida's cultural heritage.

Changes Being Made

At Circle B Bar Reserve


Construction for Polk's Nature
Discovery Center is underway
and is scheduled to be completed
in Fall 2008.
As part of this endeavor, the
visitor's entrance area to Circle B
Bar Reserve will take on a new
look. While the grass parking
area will remain, visitors will
now be directed to enter the hik-
ing area in a slightly different
manner.
As construction progresses,
hiking trails may also be rerout-
ed. Each of these changes will be
posted for visitors at the site
entrance. Additionally, in an
effort to keep visitors safe during
the construction period, the old
dirt road and construction site
will be closed to the public.
The purpose of the new
Environmental Education Center


at Circle B Bar Reserve is to pro-
vide information and discovery
opportunities for Polk County's
unique water, wildlife and wilder-
ness resources.
Visitors will experience Polk's
cultural heritage first-hand
through nature-based recreation
opportunities within environmen-
tal lands. Specifically, the pur-
pose of the center is to provide
Polk County teachers, school chil-
dren and visitors with opportuni-
ties to acquire knowledge and
skills to understand Polk's unique
local natural resources.
In the Fall of 2008, visitors will
have the opportunity to enjoy the
center, along with accompanying
picnic pavilions, wildlife observa-
tion viewing platforms, board-
walks and several multi-use
trails.


Florida is recognizing May as
Clean Air Month, encouraging
citizens to adopt environmental-
ly-friendly practices to reduce
energy consumption and protect
air quality.
A leader in clean air technolo-
gies, Florida is one of just three
states east of the Mississippi
River that currently meets all
National Ambient Air Quality
Standards and the only highly
urbanized state.
"Recognizing May as Clean Air
Month encourages Floridian's to
make a commitment to helping
ensure that Florida continues to
meet and exceed air quality stan-
dards," said Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
Secretary Michael W. Sole. "By
reducing emissions and investing
in clean energy technology we
will ensure a stronger, healthier
environment and economy for
future generations."
Over the last eight years, the
state has successfully prompted
the modernization of older power
plants to achieve large reductions
in emissions of soot, sulfur diox-
ide and smog-contributing nitro-
gen oxide. Further significant
reductions are projected over the
next eight years due to the imple-
mentation of new federal require-
ments, the Clean Air Interstate
Rule and the Clean Air Mercury
Rule.
As part of Clean Air Month,
DEP is encouraging Floridians to
do their share for cleaner air by
adopting clean air practices:
Use public transportation or
carpool.
Purchase energy efficient
products.
Conserve electricity at home
and work.
Maintain heating and air
conditioning units.
Ensure vehicle efficiency by
keeping tires inflated at the cor-
rect pressure.
Plant native trees and
shrubs.
More than 25 percent of the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection's
(DEP) fleet of clean energy'trans-
portation is comprised of 125
hybrid vehicles and more than


300 alternative fuel vehicles that
use combinations of fuel, ethanol
and electricity products.
Just last year, the state joined
executives from General Motors
and Inland Food Stores to open
the first public E85 ethanol pump
in Florida in Tallahassee. The use
of E85 can provides positive envi-
ronmental benefits in the form of
reduced greenhouse gas emis-
sions.
DEP's Office of Greenways and
Trails is pumping biodiesel, a
"green" fuel made from home-

Why Is It?



A person wakes up after sleeping

under an APVERTISEP blanket,

on an APVERTISEP mattress,

and pulls off APVERTISEP pajamas,

bathes in an APVERTISEP shower,

shaves with an APVERTISEP razor,

brushes his or her teeth with APVERTISEP

toothpaste, washes with APVERTISEP

soap, puts on APVERTISEP clothes,

drinks a cup of APVERTISEP coffee,

drives to work in an APVERTISEP car,

and then...

Refuses to APVERTISE, believing that it

doesint pay. Later if business is poor.

the person AIVERTISES it for sale.

Prenilla Perkins, a dedicated
hospital volunteer with the
American Red Cross Polk
County Chapter is this year's re-
cipient of the 2007 Hulda Glass
Award.
Ms. Perkins exemplifies the
term "volunteer." She comes in
at Winter Haven Hospital for
morning volunteer shifts with a
smile and a helpful attitude, of-
ten covering for fellow volun-
teers who have become sick, and
never asking any thanks for it.
She has worked as a volun-
teer at the hospital for more
than 10 years eight of those
as a Red Cross volunteer.
Hospital staff have given her
every award they can, and for
her and other volunteers, has
had to create awards to acknowl-
edge the way she and others con-
stantly raise the bar for service.
The Hulda Glass Award hon-
ors Prenilla Perkins since with-
out Mrs. Glass, there wouldn't be
a Polk County Chapter.
Mrs. Glass Started as a Red
Cross volunteer in 1942. When
the chapter moved to the old
Postal Building located on Third
Street and Avenue D, N.W., in
1943, Mrs. Glass was hired as
assistant to the executive secre-
tary.
When the executive secretary
resigned, she offered to do the
job temporarily until replace-
ment was found. The position be-
came permanent in May 1944.
By 1958, she was one of five
executives in the country se-
lected to serve on a national
American Red Cross committee
to study training of executives.
In 1960, the title changed to
executive director instead of ex-
ecutive secretary. When he
started volunteering at the
American Red Cross, current Ex-
ecutive Director Tom Costello. re-
members a woman who was the
Red Cross in enthusiasm and
clout.

years anniversary with the Red

Cross. In 1972, the chapter
building on Fifth Street was offi-
cially named the Hulda S. Glass
Chapter in honor of her 30 years
of service.
She retired in 1972, but as
Costello said Thursday, "that
only means you start volunteer-
ing," which she did. After Hulda
Glass died on March 3, 1984, the
chapter board of directors estab-
lished the Hulda Glass Award to
be given each year to a person
who has performed outstanding
service to the chapter.
Other awards given Thursday
were:
Phyllis Warren is the 2007
Hospital Volunteer of the Year
Michele Medani is the 2007

CSA Offers Help
Small family farms face enor-
mous challenges, but a growing
number are achieving economic
viability through an unconven-
tlional farming concept:
-Community Supported
:Agriculture.
In a nutshell, Commufity
upported Agriculture (CSA) is a
partnership between farmers and
consumers. In conventional agri-
culture, the farmer bears all the
iisk of production, but CSA
allows farmers to share farming's
risks and its rewards with
consumers.
CSA revolves around a com-
munity of consumers who pledge
their financial support to a farm.
At the beginning of the growing
'eason, members pay a fee to
:cover the cost of the farm's opera-
tions and the farmer's salary.
In return, each member
receives a weekly share of 'the
farm's bounty typically a box of
fresh vegetables and herbs,
though the box might also include
fruit, honey, eggs, and even meat.
Shares are picked up at the farm
or at a central distribution point
: maybe a local church or farm-
*ers' market, or a member's shady
porch.
S Membership fees vary, but usu-
ally run between $300 and $500
per season. Members must be
,prepared to deal with potential
:crop damage by weather and
pests.
They aren't paying for a partic-
ular amount of produce, but for
whatever the harvest may bring.
:Of course, the farmer must do all
:he or she can to prevent crop loss,
;covering tender plants before a.
:cold front, for example, and care-
,fully monitoring for insect pests.
"CSA reduces the financial risk
;for the farmer because you have a
;set group of consumers who com-
;mit to buy a season's worth of pro-
duce," said Rose Koenig, who
:farms for more than 90 families
through Plowshares CSA in
Gainesville. "Another benefit for
the farmer is volunteer labor.
Volunteers can. help with every-
thing from paperwork to distr -
:tion of the weekly produce
shares."
CSA members are encouraged
to become personally involved in
:the farm they are supporting. To
build community, many farmers
host picnics and educational
.workshops at the farm, or open
,he farm for tours and workdays.
Hiands-on involvement is satisfy-
ing to members, who are often
looking to : connectt with nature
nd their a :ricultural heritage.
Helping ,.. rs get to know
the farm is good for the grower,
too, Ly ...r-- members who feel
:that sense of personal connection
:are much nnrv likely to volunteer
:their tir ,AAd skills. .
S-e}) one; core group of com-
i ;ers,' Koenig said.
"'s like manage the
.. ... au out with the
nc~ .i.,ter and web site. That
way, my primary job is farming."


Network will charter with 40
members, 35 of them new to the
American Business Women's
Association unless more ladies
sign up before the charter.
The network will meet the
fourth Tuesday of the month at C
& C Bank Community Room,
Bartow beginning with network-
ing/lunch at 11:30 a.m. and meet-
ing/program from noon to 1 p.m.
May 22 speaker is Lori Van
Ness, human resource director for
the Polk County Sheriffs Office


and her subject will be "How to
Turn Dysfunctional Groups into
Dynamic Teams."

ships is available.

To Farmers And Communities


Farmers quickly learn to value
their volunteers, and many
become lasting friends.
"For farmers who like social
interaction, CSA is great," Koenig
said. "It's a really good opportuni-
ty to get to know the people who
eat your food."
"We have a diverse group of
people working together, making
friends," said Roberto Saenz, the
farm manager at Sweetwater
Organic Community Farm, a 150-
member CSA near Tampa. "It's
very interesting. We're trying to
create community. We're creating
a family here."
Many farmers are attracted to
CSA not just as a way to make a
living, but as a lifestyle choice.
They believe in organic farming,
small farms, and working to
restore community food systems.
They believe in nurturing the soil
and teaching people to eat locally
and with the seasons. A CSA farm
becomes a reflection of their val-
ues.
"The most rewarding thing to
me about CSA is showing city
kids where food comes from, let-
ting them get their hands dirty,"
Saenz said. "It's great to see kids
pulling food out of the ground,
establishing that connection to
the land."
CSA farming can be more
interesting than conventional
farming. Farmers plant a wide
array of crops to keep customers
interested and excited about their
weekly boxes. Since shipping
their products isn't an issue, CSA
farmers have a lot of freedom to
experiment with the varieties
they plant. Flavor is the para-
mount concern, rather than dura-
bility.
So farmers can plant what
tastes best, including rare and
heirloom varieties delicate,
delicious, and seldom seen in gro-
cery stores.
CSA has many rewards, but
it's not for every farmer.
Plantings must be carefully timed
so the produce boxes can be filled
with a satisfying assortment of
vegetables every week. Careful
planning is essential to prevent
gaps in produce availability.
"You need to offer a wide vari-
ety of produce to your customers,"
Koenig said. "So you need to be
able to cultivate a diversity of
crops and get the timing down so
you're harvesting the right crops
every week."
A CSA farmer needs good orga-
nizational skills and good people
skills: "If you don't like people,
you shouldn't do CSA," Koenig
said.
A CSA arrangement is a little
less flexible than other types of
farming. Promises have been
made to customers; they've paid
in advance and are counting on
their vegetables.
"You've made a commitment to
your members, so you can't miss
those weekly pickup dates,"
Koenig said. "Dependability is
most important as far as work


ethic goes.

It used to be Dr. David Hugh
Varn's office many years ago, but
now even with all its history, the
building is taking on new life.
R&B Pawn Shop will be open-
ing its doors both of them in
about a month.
Richard Howard, owner, lends
the R to the business name. His
wife Belinda is. the B.
Howard and his crew are busi-
ly preparing shelves and counters
for the business to make its way
in downtown Fort Meade.
He has spent approximately
two months bringing the building
up to code, and as soon as the
Slicenset: arrive R&B will be open..
Residents will have the oppor-
tunity to browse the wares,
receive loans, and sell items in
the near future.
The building does have a histo-
ry.
Evidently in its life, the back
portion of the building held a tai-
lor's shop. Scribbled writings on
the walls are like pages of a jour-
nal and follow the old saying, "If
walls could talk."
Some of the legible remarks
are, "On Dec. 22, 1934 A. W.

tailor shop in 1906." One's not
sure which date is correct.
"M. Burt had a fire going
today," the writing declares,
which is dated Jap. 31, 1936.
The tailor must have run short
of paper because the wall has
someone's dimensions: "inseam
30-1/2, bottoms 24-1/2, waist 37-

R&B is getting to make its own
memories now.

Students Break World Record


Guinness World Records con-
firmed that Florida middle school
students, which included Bartow
Middle School and Union
Academy students, broke the
record for the "Most People
Reading Aloud Simultaneously in
Multiple Locations."
The event, Breaking a World
Record: Reading Aloud!, was over-
seen by the Just Read, Florida!
office. The record attempt aired
from Disney-MGM Studios at
11:25 a.m. on Sept. 28, when
186,054 middle school students
statewide read an excerpt from
the book "Peter and the


Starcatchers" written by Dave
Barry and Ridley Pearson.
According to Guinness World
Records, Florida students broke
the previous record of 155,528
students throughout the United
Kingdom who read William
Wordsworth's poem "Daffodils,"
on March 19, 2004.
Copies of the official certificate
will be sent to each of the 456
schools that participated.
Guinness World Records is cur-
rently considering the record for
entry in their annual book.

More Polk County students
have become better writers,
according to the results of the
essay portion of the the 2007
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT)
Writing+.
However, overall performance
on Writing + has gone down.
"The ability to write proficient-
ly plays an important role in the
future successes of our children,"
said Education Commissioner
Jeanine Blomberg. "The educa-
tors of this state deserve much of
the credit for the long-term gains
shown. in our students' 'writing
skills. Their sustained focus on
increasing academic achievement
continues to pay dividends for
Florida students."
The FCAT Writing+ results for
students in grades four, eight and
10 include the traditional essay
scores and the newer Writing+
scale scores. An essay score of 3.5
is the standard used for grading.
Fourth Grade 78 percent
of students scored 3.5 and above
statewide, an increase from 76
percent last year. Polk County
students increased from 79 to 83
percent. The average essay score
remained the same as last year's
at 3.9 in the state and the county.
Eighth Grade 86 percent
of students scored 3.5 and above,
an increase from 83 percent last
year. Polk County students
increased from 81 to 83 percent.
The average essay score for the
state increased from 4.0 in 2006
to 4.1, while the county increased
from 3.9 to 4.0.
10th Grade 79 percent of
students scored 3.5 and above, a
slight increase from 78 percent
last year. Polk County students
increased from 73 to 74 percent.
The average essay score for the
state remained the same as last
year's at 3.9, while the county
average increased from 3.7 to 3.8.
For the first time, FCAT,
Writing+ scores are being report-
ed in terms of five achievement
levels as adopted by the State
Board of Education in January.
The achievement levels are based
on the total FCAT writing score,
which combines multiple-choice
questions and the essay.


Fourth Grade 60 percent
of students scored at or above
grade level (Level 3 and above) on
writing skills in the state, and 61
percent in the county
Eighth Grade 45 percent
of students scored at or above
grade level on writing skills, and
36 percent in the county.
10th Grade 49 percent of
students scored at or above grade
level on writing skills, and 41 per-
cent in the county
Students also receive an FCAT
Writing+ scale score, ranging
from 100 to 500, which is a combi-
nation of the essay and the multi-
ple-choice items. This score was
reported for the first time in 2006.
The 2007 statewide average scale
scores increased in grades four
and 10 over the 2006 scores.
Fourth Grade the average
state scale score is 302, up six
score points from 296 last year,
and the average county scale
score increased from 295 to 301
Eighth Grade the average
state scale score is 291, down four
score points from 295 last year,
and the average county scale
score decreased from 285 to 276
10th Grade the average
state scale score is 296, up one
point from 295 last year, and the
average county scale score
decreased from 283 to 281
The class of 2010, or students
who are in ninth grade this school
year (2006-07), will be required to
earn a passing score of 300 or
higher on the FCAT Writing+ in
order to graduate from high
school.
Although this requirement
does not affect this year's 10th
graders, 49 percent of them met
this passing standard.
Beginning this year, the FCAT
Parent Network, a secure site
that enables parents to view their
child's FCAT scores online, will
include F,CAT Writing+ scores.
Parents may view their students'
scores via the FCAT Parent
Network (www.fcatparentnet-
work.com) using the secure login
and password provided by their
school.
Bartow Elementary Academy,
which had the highest mean score
of local schools, had implemented


new strategies so that more stu-
dents would get perfect sixes on
the essay portion, said Principal
Carol Borders.
Three BEA students earned
sixes Chris Pion, Ben Esper,
and William Gibson which was
one more than last year.
"We hope to get even more next
year," Ms. Borders said.
Union Academy had 99 percent
of its eighth graders pass with a
3.5 or higher, with 96 percent
passing with a 4.0 or higher,
Principal Steve Petrie said. Seven
UA eighth graders earned sixes
on the essay portion Jordan
Bqntrager, Quinteise Douglas,
Heather Goldman, Lyndsey Kay,
Rebecca Dyer, Jessica Stavely,
and Kaitlin McKeen.
Bartow High School had 10
students who earned sixes -
Lauryn H. Albert, Leah L.
Cartwright, Jacklin Chavez,
Maverick- C. Fleming, Erin R.
Foley, Neill H. Lashkajani, Daniel
E. Leckie, Lindsay M. Lee, Casey
A. Taylor, and Sierra M. Taylor.

Chamber Diplomats Honored At Spirit of Bartow Breakfast


Volunteers of the Greater
Bartow Chamber of Commerce
were honored during the Spirit of
Bartow OJ Breakfast on May 3.
The "Diplomats" are 24 individu-
als who donate their time to the
Chamber doing everything from
answering the phone to preparing
mailers.
"We don't know what we would
do without our Diplomats," Jeff
Clark, executive director of the
Bartow Chamber, said. "A lot of
the events and programs wouldn't
ever happen if we didn't have the
support of our volunteers."
Virginia Condello, director of
communications for the Chamber
and Diplompt liaison, agrees.
"With a 'full time staff of.only
three, it would be impossible for
us to be involved in all we do if
our Diplomats didn't help us.
Although we are one of the top
three Chambers in the county, we
have one of the smallest staffs per
member, and I believe we are
involved in some way or other in
almost every event that takes
place in Bartow."
The Diplomats are many times
behind the scenes getting things
done for the Chamber and the
City of Bartow. They are the offi-
cial greeters at the Welcome
Center portion of the Chamber,
answering the telephone and
helping visitors and newcomers to
Bartow get acclimated with the
city and its recreational spots and
special events. Bartow's Welcome
Center is staffed by these volun-
teers 40 hours a week, Monday
through Friday. They work in half
day shifts 10 shifts a week.
The volunteers also are always
available to put together special
mailings. They recently prepared
and mailed out more than 5,000
request letters to help secure
sponsors and patrons for the
Youth Villa Classic. Every
newsletter sent out more than
1,000 each month is hand-
inserted, stapled and labeled by
the Chamber Diplomats.
"And they do all this without a
complaint," Condello said, "even
though sometimes the work and
the phone calls can get pretty
amazing."
The Diplomats have fielded
such questions as "Can you rec-
ommend a Greek interpreter?," or


after a long, detailed explanation
of a caller's plight, "Do I need a
lawyer?"
On newsletter day, the
Chamber boardroom transforms
from conference room to congre-
gational room as the Diplomats
gather to work, share their hearts
and stories with one another,, and
chuckle and laugh until the job is
done. "It's one of the best parts of
this job," Condello said. "Everyone
enjoys it when the Diplomats are
here."
At the Spirit of Bartow break-
fast, each Diplomat was called
forward and presented with a
Bartow Chamber shirt provided
to them by Gary and Barbara
Newell of Central Florida Truss.
"The Newells are very involved
with community events and the
Chamber and Mrs. Newell's sis-
ter, Mary Henderson, and her
mother, Marylee Conley, are both
Diplomats," Clark noted.
Other diplomats are Ortelle
Bowden, Evelyn Brown, Lavelle
Churchwell, Bonnie Davidson,
Jack Davis, Carolyn German,
Ilene Hinds, Mickey Hogan, Nell
Hollingsworth, Kitty Hunt, Issie
and Bill Jencowski, Tommie
Jenkins, Marietta King, Helen
Knight, Jean Long, Pete Parker,
Shirley Pittenger, Jeanne Scott,
Rose Marie Sherwood, Rhoda
Whitten and Frances Williams.
Mary Henderson was given the
2007 Diplomat Service Hours
Award, logging in the most time
as a volunteer for the Chamber.
This is her second year winning
the award in the two years it has
been given.
Jack Davis was presented with
the 2007 Diplomat of the Year
award an award voted on by all
the other Diplomats for the per-
son they feel most exemplifies the
spirit of volunteerism.
Sue Britt of Community
National Bank, the host for the
breakfast, said of Davis, "Our win-
ner this year is a charter member
of the Chamber Diplomats assist-
ing with the Chamber newsletter,
mailings, meeting reminder calls,
trips to the Post Office, or to pick
up lunch for the staff. In addition
to working his own shift in the
lobby, he frequently fills in when
other Diplomats can not work a
shift sometimes with only a


few minute's notice.
"With a lifetime of friends and
acquaintances in Bartow, Jack


Davis is a perfect fit when it
comes to representing our city
and the Chamber."

From Our Bill of Rights


The Ninth and Tenth Amendments


Ninth Amendment


"The enumeration in the
Constitution of certain rights
shall not be construed to
deny or disparage others
retained by the people."-

Words to know
This is what these words mean to
most people:
enumeration: listing
construed: thought to mean
disparage: make seem unimpor-
tant or. inferior
The Founding Fathers knew it was
impossible to list all the rights
retained, or held, by the people. Just.
because certain rights are not
listed in the Constitution does not'
mean that they are not held by:
the people.


Background on the
Ninth Amendment
The Bill of Rights is the first 10
Amendments to our nation's
Constitution. They protect our rights,
but which rights?
Personal liberties
James Madison felt very strongly
that the Ninth Amendment should be
added to the Bill of Rights.
While many rights were not listed
elsewhere in the Constitution, these
unlisted rights should be considered
important, too.
Exactly what are these unlisted
rights? Who has the right to decide?
In most cases, the courts have not
only used the Ninth Amendment, but
also looked to other parts of the'
Constitution to make these decisions.
The right to privacy
The right to

r U listed in the
Bill of Rights
or in the
S Constitution.
SBut the
courts have
often held'
that some
kinds of pri-
vacy are pro-
tected by the Ninth Amendment.


Tenth Amendment


Lawmakers pass our national laws in the
U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
I -% _.


Lawmakers in North Carolina meet in the
General Assembly building in Raleigh.

"The powers not delegated to
the United States by the
Constitution, nor prohibited
by it to the states, are
reserved to the states respec-
tively, or to the people."

Words to know
delegated: given
prohibited: forbidden
Meaning: The states, first, or the
people, second, keep all of the powers
not granted by the Constitution to the
national government.

Background on the
Tenth Amendment
To understand how important the
Tenth Amendment is, you would have
to step back in history to the laws
passed after the Revolutionary War.
1777
In 1777, many new states agreed
to unite under a series of laws called
the Articles of Confederation. An
article is a part of a legal agreement.
A confederation is a group united
for a purpose.
The states united for the purpose
of winning the war against the
British and they did. All states
agreed to the Articles by 1781.
1787
The Articles were weak because
the colonists feared a strong
government like Great Britain's.
When the Constitutional Convention
met in 1787, the delegates argued
about the powers 'that the federal
(national) and state governments
should have. The delegates gave lim-
ited powers to the national govern-
ment, but the new government had
more powers than before.
1789
The delegates to the first U.S.
Congress approved the 10thAmendment,
which said that the people and the
states retained (or kept) any powers
not granted to the federal government.
1791
Two years later, on Dec. 15, 1791,
the Bill of Rights was approved by
the required number of states and
became the law of the land.
This is the final issue in our series about
the Bill of Rights. The Mini Page thanks
the staff of the National Archives and Lee
Ann Potter, director of education and vol-
unteer programs, for their help with this issue.
Site to see: archives.gov
The Mini Page also thanks Claire Griffin, vice pres-
ident of educational services, the Bill of Rights
Institute, for help with this issue. Site to see:
