Hearing Set Tonight


On New City Emblem


Dressed in riding gear and ready for dressage, the Summerlin equestrian team rode into the hearts
of their parents and friends last Tuesday night. The team is coached by Heather Jaekel Snyder.


Bartowans may express their
opinions tonight at a public hear-
ing on a proposal to change the
emblem that appears on city vehi-
cles and equipment.
The new logo, called the "his-
toric medallion design," was a
byproduct of the city's streetscap-
ing project, and was recommend-
ed by the Bartow Marketing
Partnership.
The new logo, which appears at
the bottom right hand of the front
page of each issue of The
Democrat, is an oval with a draw-
ing of the historic courthouse at
its center. Surrounding the pic-
ture are the words "City of Oaks
and Azaleas, Est. 1851." A banner
across the bottom bears the name
"Bartow."
The new emblem would
replace a circle with an oak tree
at its center, azalea blossoms on
the side, depicting the city's slo-
gan, "The City of Oaks and
Azaleas."


that the new, logo "will present a
more consistent and attractive
image for the city."
Given the furor that some past
changes in the city's promotion
logos has created, City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge scheduled a
public hearing on the new
emblem for tonight's commission
meeting..
The commission will hold a
closed meeting at 5 o'clock to dis-
cuss a lawsuit filed by a subdivi-
sion developer, Highland Cassidy,
followed by a public work session
at 5:30. The commission will
reconvene for its regular business
meeting at 6:30.
At that meeting, the commis-
. sion will consider .on first reading
ordinances relating to zoning and
land use:
Designating 4.2 acres of land
in West Bartow as R-5 (high den-
sity residential) for construction
of an "affordable housing" apart-
ment complex.

House as recreation and open
space; to prevent development of
the property.
Rezoning land behind the
Brooks veterinary clinic on U.S.
Highway 17 for commercial use to
allow expansion of the building.
The commission also will adopt
a proclamation designating May
20 to 26 as National Public Works
Week.

mission will:
Discuss appointees to the
Joint Airport Zoning Board of the
Transportation Planning
Organization.
Review appointees to various
boards and'committees.

Equestrians Ride Water Restrictions Remain;


Into Hearts Of Fans


What young girl doesn't dream
of owning a pony?
For several Summerlin
Academy students, that dream is
coming to life as they become the
school's equestrian team..
The students, some of whom
had never touched a horse before
joining the team; rode in forma-
tion and demonstrated their
horsemanship last Tuesday at
High Gate Farms near Alturas.
Team members have been
training for the entire year, and
delight shown on their faces as
they rode the horses in front of


their friends and family.
In addition to learning to ride,
the students learn to care for the
animals, and the responsibility
horse ownership entails.
The team is coached by
Heather Jaekel Snyder, and leas-
es horses from High Gait Farms,
owned by Bonnie and Ken Allen.
Team members .are Tracy
Coker, Jackie Clark, Emily
Thraen, Beth Taylor, Emily
Stone, Ashley Hill, Kristina
Congdon, Natalie Candelaria,
Candis Stalk, Daniela Fagnilli
and Kim Durbin.

Extended dry weather condi-
tions are creating high demands
for water, straining both potable
(drinking) water and reclaimed
water sources managed by Polk
County Utilities, Director Greg
Boettcher said.
Lawn and landscape irrigation
are causing water use to approach
and sometimes exceed water sys-
tem capacities. Earlier this year
the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
declared a severe water shortage
emergency; however customer
water usage has continued to
climb.
The high water demands have
exhausted all reclaimed water
supplies in Polk County's
Southwest Regional Utility
Service Area, Boettcher said.
Until the drought conditions
improve and reclaimed water sup-
plies recover, Polk County
Utilities must periodically shut
down reclaimed water service.
To minimize the frequency and
duration of these service suspen-
sions, customers are urged to use
all water sources wisely and con-
servatively, Boettcher said. The
more water used by customers,
the longer the current shortages
will apply, so ultimately, customer
usage determines the extent and
length of water service problems.

Classified Ads Page 13

"All customers are urged to
conserve water," Boettcher said.
"The combined result of 55,000
customers doing their part can
produce a significant water sav-
ings. Even in'service areas where
water supply conditions are not
yet critical, high demands result
in reduced water pressure,
reduced reserves and strain on
equipment."
The SFWMD water emergency
declaration includes all of Polk
County and is in effect until July
31. Except where cities have
stricter schedules in place, resi-
dents should water using the fol-
lowing guidelines. All customers
using potable water, private wells
or lakes for irrigation should fol-
low the one day per week water-
ing restriction.
No customers may irrigate
with potable or reclaimed water
between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Customers may only water one
time per designated watering day.

Fort Meade residents Dan and
Ruby Moody recently visited Ret.
Lt. General Bill Fitch, formerly of
Fort Meade and Bartow, and his
wife Margaret Marie, in McLean,
Va.
The Moodys' trip was an
anniversary gift from their son,
Daniel, his wife, Nancy, and their
children, Mallory and Drew.
Besides enjoying the seasonal
variations of that part of the
country, the couple also did some
historical sightseeing in
Washington, D.C.
The purpose of the trip, howev-
er, was to visit with Lt. and Mrs.
Fitch, whose basement is a muse-
um of Fitch's Marine Corps
career.
Fitch invented and flight-test-
ed the multiple carriage bomb
rack, which enabled the A-4 and
other jet aircraft to carry a larger
and more effective ordnance load.
He was issued a U.S. patent

The Counseling Corner
From the American Counseling Association


Keeping the Romance In A Relationship


It certainly isn't news that
relationships take work. We've all
been told that we have to put
effort into keeping a romantic
relationship fresh and interest-
ing. But too often we get wrapped
up in our busy lives and end up
ignoring our significant other or
taking him or her for granted.
To fix that problem, you might
try a more organized approach for
keeping the romance in a rela-
tionship, not unlike the way you
probably handle your busy day at
the office or managing a house-
hold. It may sound more busi-
ness-like than romantic, but rela-
tionship maintenance can actual-
ly be very enjoyable.
Start with your day planner,
PDA or regular old calendar.
Schedule events for your relation-
ship, just like you do meetings or
appointments. Note special days
beyond the usual birthday and
anniversary dates. Maybe the day
you first met, or the anniversary


of a special vacation. Include ran-
dom prompts to do something
romantic at other times for no
special reason.
Similarly, keep an intelligence
file on your partner. Make a list of
favorite things, from wines to
flowers to authors to movies. It's
not only a way to stay more in
tune with each other, but can
make gift giving more special and
meaningful.
You also want to create a regu-
lar schedule for time together. If
that orthodontist or gym trainer
deserves a set appointment each
week, why not your romantic
partner? Your date night doesn't
have to be a fancy night out, just
a time when the two of you can
reconnect and get beyond the
daily minutia that fills up so
much of our lives.
Also try setting a regular, daily
meeting time. Maybe it's just 15
minutes at the beginning or end
of the day, but make it happen


every day. Find out what your
partner has been up to, what's
gone right or wrong, and what's
being planned. Stay connected
with each other.
If your romantic relationship
has started to feel stale and bor-
ing, realize it won't just fix itself.
Put some thought and effort into
doing things that will bring the
romance back. If you need extra
help, check the yellow pages for
counselors who specialize in rela-
tionship or couples counseling.
Giving a relationship the work
and attention it deserves can pay
you back with a lifetime of com-
panionship, happiness and love.

Red Cross Celebrates 90 Years In Polk County


May 17 marked the 90th
anniversary of the American Red
Cross serving Polk County.
The chapter first organized on
May 17, 1917, at the home of Mrs.
J.A.G. Allen in Winter Haven.
Ladies gathered there to make
shirts and bandages. As their
activities and fundraisers grew,
they asked for a charter. The
national organization suggested
they invite other towns to join, so
the "Eastern Polk County
Chapter" included Auburndale,
Davenport, Eagle Lake, Eloise,
Haines City, Lake Alfred, Lake
Hamilton, Loughman, Mountain
Lake, and Winter Haven.
Some towns formed the Haines
City Chapter for a time, but the
original office in Winter Haven
was on Central Avenue, between
Second and Third Streets West.
Eventually, the chapter
merged with other chapters, and
then with the Greater Lakeland


Chapter in 1985. What was then
called the "Ridge Area Chapter"
became the "American Red Cross
Polk County Chapter." '
The office in Winter Haven sits
two blocks from 'the original
office, but the Polk County
Chapter has come a long way.
From those humble begin-
nings, chapter services would
branch out.
Over the years, services includ-
ed a district health nurse to over-
see health in public schools; the
Lakes Life-Saving of which cur-
rent Executive Director Thomas
E. Costello and his father served
as members; assistance to mili-
tary servicemen, helping cut red
tape for medical treatment or
compensation; first aid, cardio-
pulmonary resuscitation, swim-
ming and babysitting classes;
mass care feeding for disaster vic-
tims and emergency personnel;
and Disaster Action Teams that


respond to home fires and other
disasters within two hours of
being called.
The Polk County Chapter
brings together volunteers and
supporters from all over the coun-
ty; and also oversees the
Highlands County Service Center
in Sebring.
No matter what time of day, no
matter how far or close to home,
Red Cross volunteers stand ready
to assist disaster victims. The
Polk County Chapter has sent
volunteers and staff to assist with
disasters in every city in the
county, throughout the state to
assist with tornado, flood and
hurricane relief, and through the
nation and world to help with
relief efforts.

Minor Strokes Are Not Very Minor


No one is at zero risk for
stroke, which explains why it is
vital to know the signs and
understand how to decrease the
chance of experiencing a stroke.
Current therapies are power-
ful and effective, but can be
applied only in the first few
hours, said Dr. Dennis Landis,
chairman of neurology at Baylor
College of Medicine in Houston.
Good cardiovascular health
habits greatly reduce the risk of
stroke. Hypertension and dia-
betes must be recognized and
treated. Smoking, obesity and
lack of exercise all increase the
risk of stroke, but that risk is
reduced when a person modifies
those habits.
A stroke is caused by loss of
blood supply to a portion of the
brain which results in loss of
brain function.
For example, loss of blood sup-
ply to the portion of the brain con-
trolling movement may result in
paralysis of the arm and leg.
Landis stresses the importance of
acting on the following warning
signs and seeking emergency care
immediately:..
*Sudden numbness or weak-
ness affecting the face, arm or leg,
especially on one side of the body
eSudden difficulty in speaking
or understanding speech
*Sudden trouble seeing in one
or both eyes
*Sudden trouble walking,
dizziness, loss of balance or coor-
dination
At a certified stroke center, a
Brain Attack team of specially
trained physicians and nurses
can rapidly determine whether a
stroke is in progress, and whether
to treat it with clot-busting med-
ications.
A stroke can be stopped in its
tracks in the first few hours with
clot-busting medications.

.1 sa~;. i t *&a,


Nearly half of strokes are pre-
ceded by transient symptoms or
signs. These are warnings of dis-
aster. Even though a person may
seem to recover in minutes, they
should go directly to an emer-
gency facility for diagnosis and
help.
Some ischemic strokes may
seem to cause only minimal dam-
age, but they are still important.
"If you have a block in a small
blood vessel irrigating a portion
of the white matter in the frontal
lobe, the symptoms may be sub-
tle. Don't ignore the minor prob-
lem," said Landis. "Diseases like
diabetes and hypertension are
also causing damage in similar
vessels elsewhere. A block in an
equally small blood vessel that
serves the.portion of the.brain
responsible for motor activity can
cause a person to be paralyzed."
Stroke victims can recover par-

Direct electrical stimulation of
muscles in paralyzed limbs can be
used to elicit nearly normal move-

"We're getting better and bet-
ter with preventive and treat-
ment techniques," said Landis.
"Even more exciting is that there
are now many therapies that can
greatly reduce the risk of stroke."

Editorial


Queen Elizabeth came to check on the
Colonies earlier this month.
It's always nice to have Her Majesty
come over for a visit; it gives us a chance to
practice curtseying and bowing. We don't
do a lot of curtsies and bows for our own
political leaders.
The occasion for her visit was to com-
memorate the 400th anniversary of the
founding of Jamestown, Va., which
became America's first English settlement
on May 14, 1607.
No less an authority than Time
Magazine reported that the event marked
the milestone of "America at 400."
Not so fast.
St. Augustine, Fla., was established on
Sept. 8, 1565. America is 441 and counting.
Pedro Menendez de Aviles, a Spanish
explorer, established St. Augustine with an
expedition of approximately 500 soldiers,
200 sailors, 100 farmers and craftsmen, and
an unknown number of wives and chil-
dren.
It is for this reason that while the
National Guard traces its lineage to the
Minutemen of 1776, the Florida National
Guard dates its heritage from the
Menendez contingent in 1565.
The Spanish entourage built the Castillo
de San Marcos, a stone and coquina
fortress, to protect St. Augustine.
Construction began in 1672 and ended in
1696. The Castillo remains open to tourists,
and is a "must see" for visitors.
The first European birth in what would
become the United States was Martin de


Arguelles, born in either 1566 or 1567.
Martin was a young adult when Virginia
Dare was born in North Carolina in 1587.
St. Augustine is recognized as America's
Oldest City. Less well known, even St.
Augustinians acknowledge that Eensacola
was America's First City. Pensacola was
established before St. Augustine, but did
not survive. It was re-established later.
Residents of the two cities have agreed
to the Oldest City/First City labels for each
other.
The City lof St. Augustine considered
placing a billboard outside Jamestown
wishing a Happy Birthday "to our
younger brother."
Congratulations are indeed in order for
Jamestown on its 400th birthday.
Let's just not forget.that Florida's own
St. Augustine (or Pensacola, if you prefer)
is where it all began.

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

Keep the Faith, Graduates


Let's Not Forget


Where It All Started


('This column was first pub-
lished in 1983, when our oldest
daughter graduated from Bartow
High School. I hope that the mes-
sage is timeless, and one which
parents of this year's graduates'
might like for their youngsters to
hear.)

There are normally only two
ways to get to speak to a bunch of
graduating seniors: either be one
of the top graduates, or get a
prominent job, such as President
of the United States.
My chances of doing either are,
about equal.
But I was given the opportuni-
ty to speak to a small group of
Polk County high school gradu-
ates last week, thanks to an invi-
tation from the school superin-
tendent, and it was both an honor
and a challenge to try to find
words worthy of that occasion.
High school graduates aren't
interested in hearing lectures,
and they are doubly uninterested
in hearing how 1 used to walk 10
miles through the snow to get to
school when I was their age._
Besides, that story rings a little
hollow in Central Florida.
But I did have a brief message,
one born of my own college expe-
rience, and I offer it to any mem-


bers of this year's class who
might find it helpful:'

As your teachers 'have been
preparing you for the academic
challenges which lie ahead, your
families, your churches, your
communities have been trying to
prepare you for one of the biggest
steps in your life the step when
you leave home and achieve a
greater degree of independence,
whether in employment, in mar-
riage, or in college.
We have tried to instill in you
certain values. Not all parents are
in full agreement on what those
values should be, but most of us
have tried to pass along to you
the faith we have in a Supreme
Being, however we may perceive
Hinm to exist; we have tried to
pass along a belief in the value of
honest effort, and in the worth of
every person.
College is a time when your
basic values will be challenged.
Peer pressures are nothing new
for you; you've already felt the
pressure of the crowd in matters
of sexual conduct, drug use,, and
other areas where tough deci-
sions have to be made.
But in college you will find
other basic values challenged, not
only by your fellow students, but


Ah, the Glories


Of Daylight Saving Time


All right. Who was the genius who
decided the nation should be forced to
wake up and go to work in the dark in
March?
No, it wasn't a senator from Alaska who
wanted us to discover what it felt like to
wake up in our most northern state, where
the sun doesn't pop up in the east until
8:30 a.m. at this time of year.
Our, Daylight Saving Time benefactor is
Congressman Ed Markey, a Democratic
from Massachusetts. He pushed through
that law two years ago as an add-on to an
energy bill.
Markey's theory was that it would save
us money and energy if he could keep us
in the dark on March mornings.
Are you already saving energy? Are you
turning out the lights and going to bed.an-
hour or two earlier now? How many resi-
dents get dressed without turning on a
light? Our guess is if you did, you have a
greater problem than mismatched socks.
The American Council for an Energy
Efficient Economy contends that by 2020,
consumers will save $4.4 billion, we will
have to build just three new power plants,
and we will reduce consumption of natur-
al gas and reduce carbon emissions.
Do you now feel full of energy? More
alert? Is there less or more road rage?


Have there been fewer traffic accidents
on dark mornings? Are you expected to do
more home chores, in the evening, with
more daylight things you would never
be asked to do in the morning?
Wives, do you have more time to pack a
nourishing lunch for your children or hus-
band? Men, did you nick yourself while
shaving without the bathroom lights on in
your effort to prove Markey right?
Have the police found the crime rate
plummeting, as Markey predicted it
would? Or must the crooks just wait an
extra hour longer to prey on us?
If you really want to save energy, dis-
connect your air conditioning unit. Switch
off the circulating pump on your swim-
ming pool and let the algae turn it into
green pea soup. Turn off your drier and
hang your clothing outdoors on a line as
grandmother did. Walk or bicycle to work.
Remove the bulb in your refrigerator and
turn off your ice maker. Heat your coffee
on a charcoal grill.
We are told to "spring forward" when
we change our clocks. Is it possible some
people in the United States would spring
forward to shake Markey's hand to thank
him, or would we be more apt to go for his
jugular?


INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD

Roughing It


Smoke burned my eyes as I sat
down on the big log by the fire.
Ashes sprinkled down like warm
snowflakes.
Randy, who owned the land,
perched on a log behind me, was
telling a friend how much God had
blessed him. My old pal Mackie,
Randy's uncle, watched the cof-
feepot, waiting. My son, Kyle, five
at the time, was still asleep in the
tent.
Last night was cold. The quilt did
little to soften the hard ground. The
dew made the sides of the pup tent
sag, and water trickled down the
inside of the thin fabric and dripped
onto my face, the only part of me
not cocooned in damp blankets.
Somewhere in the wee hours of
morning, nature nudged me. 1
untangled myself from the covers
and tried to stand, but the tent w'as
too low.
Bent and shivering, I was unzip-
ping the tent door when a cramp
knifed through my hamstring. With
no room to maneuver, I kicked and
stomped trying to get the cramp out
without stepping on Kyle. Stifling a
scream, I tore at the zipper and
stumbled outside.
Later, lying on my back, cold and
stiff and sore, 1 stared up into the
darkness at the top of the tent until,
at last, it began 'to lighten. Kyle
breathed softly beside me.
I-learing movement down by the
creek, I crawled out again. T'he back
of my thigh was sore. 1 limped
down to the fire site by Charlie
Creek, seven miles east of Zolfo
Springs, where in 1905, the Lanier
brothers, Hlosea, -lubert, and
Albert, and their sisters, Bessie and
Myrtie, moving from Ocala to Zolfo


Springs, had crossed the creek in
this very spot.
Their horse stumbled and a trunk
containing almost all of their clothes
slipped off the buggy into the creek,
and neither trunk nor its contents
were ever seen again.
The Lanier family had celebrated
that event every year since then by
camping here, and this year Kyle
and I had been invited. Tents were
spread throughout the woods like
wigwams. Some of the campers
stayed a week.
"Dad! Dad!" Kyle ran up beside
me, grinning.
"What are you so excited about
this early in the morning?" I asked.
"You gotta see this, Dad!" he
says. "Snow!"
"Snow?"
"Come look!" he cried, taking
my hand and pulling me toward the
car.
The heavy moisture in the night
had frozen on the car into a thick
frost that looked just like snow. Kyle
scraped off a big handful. "Come
on, Dad. Let's have a snowball
fight!"
"Uh, 1 don't think so son. I,
uh..." Whap! Right in the heart.
I bolted for the fire.
"Come back here, you chicken!"
he yelled, laughing.
"Not me!" I hollered back.
The smell of bacon frying, com-
mingling with percolating coffee
and wood smoke, was fine.
Mackie's sister, Lura, the chief chef,
had outdone herself. One dishpan
was piled high with fried eggs,
another with scrambled. There were
bowls of grits, rice, and a pot of chili
left over from last night.
Bacon, sausage, biscuits, gravy,


and toast. Jellies, jams, and pre-
serves. A platter of fried fish: butter
cats, blue gill, and bass, caught in
the creek yesterday.
Lura called for attention, said
grace, asking God to bless those in
the world less fortunate. A food line
that seemed to stretch out a mile
formed fast. Children were allowed
to go first, so I fixed Kyle's plate and
took it to him down by the creek,
where he was throwing acorns into
the water.
As I was serving my own plate,
wedging a catfish in between piles
of scrambled eggs and grits, I saw
Duane, Mackie's nephew, toss an
empty paper plate onto the fire and
get his Bible and head down creek.
Duane is senior pastor at Millcreek
Baptist Church, east of Bradenton.
Ron, the church's youth minister,
followed him.
I took my plate back to the log by
the fire and sat down. Behind me
Randy was saying, "...and God
has certainly blessed me, and my
investments. I've made a lot of
investments, too. And I know He
will continue to..."
Overhearing his testimony, I
agreed that Randy was blessed.
With a small part of a huge inheri-
tance, he had purchased this land
that had been part of the Lanier
family history and tradition for
almost 100 years. Along with a love-
ly wife and four fine kids, he now
had all that money and all this land
with a house trailer with many com-
forts of home, including a soft,
warm bed.

by your faculty. You will be chal-
lenged to defend if only to
yourself your personal ethics,
your beliefs.
Some in college will'tell you
that any faith, any belief that
can't be proved in the laboratory
or verified by mathematic com-
putation isn't valid.
That's baloney.
I urge you to reject the notion
that anybody you'll meet in col-
lege, whether student or faculty,
has better judgment than you in
matters of personal faith and
beliefs.
As you go out on your own,
it's time to examine the beliefs of
your youth. But do your own
examining, make your own deci-
sions.
It's great to march to the beat
of a different drummer; from
such independence can spring
greatness and personal satisfac-
tion.
But you and you alone must
choose the beat to which you'll
march. No one else is capable -
no one else is worthy of cast-
ing aside the faith and the values
which you now hold.
I have only one other thing to
say to you on behalf of your par-
ents: Congratulations, and good
luck kids; we love you.

Fort Meade Woman Struck o s


By LETA WRIGHT
Community Correspondent
We were honored to have the
Polk County Industry
Community Advisory Panel (PAC)
meet at the Fort Meade Museum
train.
They arrived about four
o'clock, toured through the muse-
um and had a catered dinner in
the dining car of the train.
The spokesman for the group
flew in from Charleston, W. Va.,
and said this was the first time
she had conducted a meeting in a
train. She was happily surprised
with the convenient atmosphere.
Companies represented were:
American Compliance, Airman
Custom Chemicals, Ashland, Inc.,
Mosaic, Progress Energy, and
Tampa Electric.
We invite them back anytime.

A piece of history has been dug
up on East Broadway Street by
workers on the repaving project.
They found a piece of rail track
about eight feet long that was laid
for the streetcar line to haul peo-
ple from Old Town to the depot to
catch the train in the late 1800s.


Museum


A replica of the streetcar is on
display in the farm equipment
shed on the Museum block. The
streetcar was mobilized by mules
and was a thriving business.
Eventually, Old Town moved
from the west side of Peace River
to its present location.
We have a mural painted on
the building of Hodgetel of how
Fort Meade looked in the olden
days. Another mural is being
painted on the side of the building
owned by LisaJo's Bar-B-Q and
Ice Cream.
You must ride by and see these
two historical murals of our town
in the past.
Inside the sleeper car of the
train, we have the history of Fort
Meade painted on the walls by
local artists. They are beautiful,
and show the industries of citrus,
cattle, phosphate, as well as the
churches, Peace River Bridge and
downtown.
We, at the museum, are trying
to preserve all the history we can
of this oldest town in Polk County.

car, Inez Varn's grandfather, W. H.

Francis, drove the streetcar with
his two mules from Old Town to

He came to America from his
home in south Wales with his wife
and made their home in Fort
Meade. He was a stationmaster in
England, so he knew his trade
well.
It was quite a change in living
conditions for them to move to

Students to

Assist in

Internet,

Crime Busts

Attorney General Bill
McCollum has launched a new
initiative as part of his efforts to
protect Florida teenagers from
the possible dangers often lurk-
ing beneath the surface of the
internet.
The Internet Student Advisory
Council is intended to match
technology-savvy teenagers with
the Attorney General's Child
Predator CyberCrime Unit's law
enforcement team. The goal of
the partnership is for students to
provide investigators with valu-
able information when investi-
gating cybercrimes against chil-
dren.
"I am excited about the oppor-
tunities this program presents us
and look forward to the partner-
ships between our teenagers and
our investigators," Attorney
General McCollum said. "Today,
we are taking important steps to
combat this continuously evolv-
ing criminal activity. The stu-
dents'. knowledge will be a valu-
able resource because they are
truly the most knowledgeable
users of the internet."
Investigators with the
CyberCrime Unit will work close-
ly with the students on the coun-
cil to identify new internet
trends, including those that could
be potentially harmful to young
people. Additionally, the students
will share information to enable
law enforcement to stay abreast
of popular teen activity online
while protecting children from
internet predators.
Students can apply to the
CyberCrime Unit to join the
council, which is expected to
expand statewide at a later date.
In April, the CyberCrimes
Against Children Act of 2007 (SB
1004) was unanimously passed in
both chambers of the Florida
Legislature. The bill, when
signed into law, will significantly
strengthen penalties for those
who use the internet to sexually
solicit on children.
According to the act, penalties
are increased for the possession
or distribution of child pornogra-
phy online and a new, separate
penalty is created against inter-
net predators who communicate
with a child online and then trav-
el to meet that child for the spe-
cific purpose of further abusing
sexually him or her.
In addition to increasing the
penalties for the possession and
distribution of child pornography
and for those who travel to meet'
children, the legislation also
increases penalties for offenders
who misrepresent their age to
seduce a child over the internet.
This behavior, known as "groom-
ing," is intended to make a child
believe the offender is closer in
age to the child, therefore encour-
aging the child to feel more com-
fortable conversing with the
offender.
The new legislation gives the
Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution jurisdic-
tion to prosecute child pornogra-
phy and internet child sexual
abuse cases.

month-old daughter secured in a

way, Wood said.

Lakeland Regional Medical
Center, where she was listed in
critical condition. The child's
father, Larry Barber, was located

Features
Performances
Friday evening's concert at the
55th Annual Florida Folk
Festival will feature perfor-
mances by Florida's own Red and
Chris Henry, Jim Carrick and
Ben Prestage.
The three day festival is held
by the majestic Suwannee River
on May 25-27 at Stephen Foster
Folk Culture Center State Park.
Sponsored by the Department
of Environmental Protection, the
Florida Folk Festival is Florida's
premier event' offering music,
dance, crafts, food and story-
telling about Florida's unique
history and heritage.
Proficient bluegrass mandolin
picker and folk musician Red
Henry joins son Chris Henry in a
stellar Florida Folk Festival per-
formance of songs, stories, blue-
grass and folk music. Red has
spent his life dedicated to music
and is pleased that son, Chris,
will accompany him this year to
the Florida Folk Festival con-
tinuing a family tradition where
humorous stories and hot blue-
grass picking inspires belly
laughs and foot tapping good
times.
St. Augustine's Jim Carrick is
no stranger to the Florida folk
music family. When Carrick
steps up to the microphone, grabs
the neck of his guitar and begins
rolling his fingers through the
strings, audiences pay attention.
Carrick is one of the very few
musicians who can emulate
Florida folk legend Gamble
Roger's intricate fingerpicking
style, which he learned over
years playing with the master
himself. A natural guitarist who
is comfortable in many different
musical genres he is the complete
performer adding an expressive
baritone voice to his strong musi-
cal mix
Growing up in the swamps of
south central Florida allowed
Prestage to develop his own
brand of Florida Swamp Blues.
Prestage plays guitar, drums
and sings at the same time. His
innovative approach to instru-
mentation, songwriting and
singing, all painted on a tradi-
tional and personally historical
background, produces a vivid pic-
ture of the next generation of
Blues and Americana music.

From NewsUSA

"Mompreneurs" are part of a
trend that's becoming more and
more prevalent, as millions of
business-mirided mothers are
starting online companies and
operating them from home.
Providers of Internet services
are taking note of this increasing
number of enterprising mothers.
Network Solutions, for example,
recently partnered with Victoria
Colligan, mother of two and co-
founder of a women's networking
company called Ladies Who
Launch.
The partnership combines
Colligan's entrepreneurial know-
how with Network Solutions'
business-building tools, such as
Do-It-For-Me Web sites, easy-to-
use templates and flexible e-com-
merce packages.
But even with such helpful
resources, starting a business


can be tough, especially when
being a mom is top priority. If
you're looking to build a website
and start your own business,
Colligan offers the following tips:
Brand your company. Ask
yourself: What kind of style do I
want for my business? Serious or
whimsical? Sophisticated or
youthful? Your type of branding
could be any of these things, but
having a consistent style can
grant your company a sense of
personality.
Words are key. Carefully
determine a handful of keywords
that describe your company, and
then incorporate these words into
your site's URL, page titles and
content. This tells Internet
search engines what your site is
about, so people using these key-
words can find your site more
easily.
Sell, sell, sell. Don't overlook
conventional marketing. Include


detailed product descriptions and
quality photos of merchandise on
your site. A satisfaction guaran-
tee is a great way to exemplify
confidence in your product.
Keep it fresh. Give your cus-
tomers a reason to come back to
your website. Be sure to add new
content whenever it's appropri-
ate and monitor your site to
ensure that the content is rele-
vant.
Don't be afraid to ask for
help. Do your research and find a
Web solutions provider that will
be available when you need help.
Companies like Network
Solutions have professional web
designers and search analysts
that can help you design and
optimize your website to attract
more customers.

Learn To Save Money After College


With a diploma in hand, many
young graduates are ready to
take the workforce by storm.
SYet, with a regular income
comes more responsibility, says
Mike Sullivan, director of educa-
tion for Take Charge America, a
national non-profit credit coun-
seling agency. /
"Often times, we see young
workers fall deeper into debt as
their income rises. The reason:
their spending increases too," he
said. "One of the most important
lessons young grads will learn is
how to budget their money and
start saving."
It's estimated that employers
will hire 17.4 percent more
recent college graduates this
school year than in 2005-2006,
according to the National
Association of Colleges and
Employers.
So, what should your priorities
be? Sullivan describes the finan-
cial dos and don't for recent
grads:
Do pay off credit card debt -
Credit card debt is so prevalent
among 20-somethings that the
young adults have been dubbed
"Generation Plastic."
In fact, students in their final
year of college carry an average
credit card balance of $2,864,
according to Nellie Mae. Make
paying off your debt a top priori-
ty.
In addition, prolonging pay-
ments means that you could end
up shelling out hundreds or even
thousands more dollars in inter-
est down the road.
Do start thinking about
retirement. It's never too early to
save for retirement. Sign up for
your employer's 401k plan as
soon as you are eligible. It's one of
the smartest money moves you'll
ever make. Money is taken out of
each paycheck automatically, and


it will grow tax-free.
Do start an emergency fund
a common financial mistake
among young adults is that they
don't stash away any cash for
emergencies.
Illnesses, car problems and job
losses are just a couple of life's
unexpected turns that require
extra funds. Try to save up at
least three months of living
expenses in an interest-bearing
. savings account and don't touch.
your stash unless it's really an
emergency.
Don't become "house poor."
There is no need to rush into pur-
chasing a home right out of col-
lege if you can't afford it.
Traditionally, your mortgage
payment should be no more than
30 percent of your income. Your
total mortgage payment, com-
bined with your monthly debt
payments, should not exceed 36
percent of your income. But keep
in mind, a mortgage is only part
of the picture.
Other expenses include utility
bills, yard work and unexpected


maintenance and repairs. If a
mortgage isn't in your budget
now, start saving. Take a fixed
amount of money from each pay-
check and deposit it into an inter-
est-bearing savings account to
use as a "house fund."
Don't buy a new, fancy car -
While many grads are on the
path to financial success, it's
important not to get to hasty.
Throwing down hundreds of
dollars a month on a car payment
isn't a smart money move if you
can't easily cover daily expenses,
Sent, savings, 401(k) and extra
cash for entertainment.
If you need a car, shop for a
used one. You might also consider
locating near public transporta-
tion. It's cheaper than owning a
car and it's better for the envi-
ronment.
Don't be afraid to ask for
help. If you have questions or feel
overwhelmed with your finances,
seek the advice of a credit coun-
selor.

reputable agency.

Restoration Of

Peace River Underway


Initial steps for restoration of
the Peace River basin are under-
way, Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP)
announced.
This month, DEP adopted spe-
cific pollutant load reductions,
total maximum daily loads
(TMDLs), for the Winter Haven
Southern Chain of Lakes, near
the headwaters of the Peace
River.
This is the first action called
for in DEP's recently released
Peace River Basin Resource
Management Plan.
"Actions, not words, will
improve the Peace River basin,"
said Mimi Drew, DEP deputy sec-
retary for regulatory programs
and energy. "Achieving the pollu-
tant load reductions will require
on-the-ground projects to reduce
pollution, and we will work with
area stakeholders to make them
happen."
The Winter Haven Chain of
Lakes drains to Peace Creek,
which flows into the Peace River,
making pollutant load reductions
to the lakes beneficial to down-
stream river water quality. DEP
identified eight lakes in the
southern chain that do not meet
water quality standards for nutri-
ents (nitrogen and phosphorus).
Besides their immediate
impact on the lakes, much of this
pollution ultimately ends up in
the Peace River. Excessive
amounts of nitrogen and, phos-
phorus can lower oxygen levels,
increase algae, and upset the nat-


ural balance of plant and animal
life.
The nutrient load reductions
necessary to meet the TMDLs
will demand better management
of the urban stormwater runoff
from roads, parking lots and fer-
tilized lawns that surround the
lakes.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, the
City of Winter Haven and the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District are work-
ing together to address the prob-
lem through better stormwater
treatment and management sys-
tems as well as the construction
of man made wetlands that will
further clean the stormwater
before it enters the lakes.
DEP's Peace River plan pro-
poses other actions to improve
water quality throughout the
basin. DEP is working with the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, the Natural
Resource Conservation Service,
and area local governments to
restore flows by recreating some
of the extensive wetlands and
interconnected lakes once part of
the historical headwaters that
were cut off and drained for agri-
cultural and mining purposes.
When completed, these collec-
tive projects will increase the
amount of water flowing to the
Peace River and improve its qual-
ity.


Pioneer Luncheon June 21

Speech Contest About Leadership Blind Student A eve Hih School Hono
Blind Student Achieves High School Honors


Taylor Durkin of Lake Wales, a
sophomore at All Saints High
School in Winter Haven, won first
place in the Group 7 public speak-
ing competition held in Bartow
last week by the Bartow Rotary
Club.
She won a $175 cash prize, and
will compete at the district public
speaking contest on May 12, Asst.
Gov. Ed Vetter said.
Three contestants spoke on the
topic that is this year's Rotary
International theme, "Lead the
Way."
Miss Durkin spoke on global
warming, and urged her audience
to do their part to reduce it.
"I will see the effects in my life-
time," she said. "My children will
see the effects in their lifetimes."
She suggested that if everyone
does little things, the overall
effect will be significant.
Among her suggestions:


Use compact fluorescent
light bulbs, which use one-third
the electricity and last 10 times
as long as conventional incandes-
cent bulbs.
Recycle to reduce consump-
tion of raw materials and to
reduce the manufacturing energy
required to make items from alu-
minum and plastic.
'* Use cloth bags instead of
plastic bags for carrying gro-
ceries.
Turn off computers and
other electronic equipment when
not in use. It has been estimated
that three-fourths of the energy
consumed by this equipment
occurs when it is not in active use.
Others will follow the exam-
ples of those around them, she
said.
"The United Nations is leading
the way to stop global warming
... but there is a missing link,


and that is you."
Lindsey Poole, a senior at
Bartow High School, placed sec-
ond.
Defining leadership, she said,
"This is my dream; this is what I
believe."
She said leaders must stay one
step ahead of their followers "so
people following them can make a
difference.
"Everybody has to lead in one
way or another."
Felicia Rowell, president of the
sophomore class at Fort Meade
Middle-Senior High School,
placed third.
"Leadership takes place in the
hearts of students around our
country," she said.
"Without leadership, we
wouldn't be able to accomplish
anything in life."


By PRISCILLA PERRY
Staff Writer

Graduating with honors is
what one would expect of a
bright, intelligent, and articulate
young person.
After all this is the 21st centu-
ry and all the technology a stu-
-dent could want is at his or her
fingertips. Not only that, the sky's
the limit when it comes to making
dreams come true.
That just describes Juan Pablo
Gonzalez to a T.
Even though he was born with-
out sight, he has a great vision of
what he wants in life. Being blind
has not stopped him. J.P., as his
friends call him, has focus, stays
on track, and obtains his goals.
The Fort Meade High School
senior will graduate with honors
Tuesday night and will take with
him a four-year Take Stock In
Children scholarship not given
but earned. He also will take with
him'some good memories of his
high school years.
Gonzalez, son of Estella
Gonzalez, moved to Fort Meade in
1998 when he was in the fifth
grade, but attended classes in
Lakeland before blending into the


campus body at Fort Meade
Middle School as a sixth grader.
He said he likes math and dis-
likes science.
Juan Pablo has musical talent,
too. He joined the Fighting
Miners Band and has played the
coret since the seventh grade.
When asked which teacher left
an impression on him, he quickly
replied "Mrs. Woods!"
Cynthia Woods teaches the
subject he likes best, math, and
taught him in sixth, 10th, and
11th grades.
Another faculty member,
Guidance Counselor Paulette
Gillispie, had this to say about
Juan Pablo, "This is a young man
with goals and directives, and he
will not let anything keep him
from reaching them."
Mrs. Gillispie referred to one
person who made a significant
impact in Juan Pablo's life.
Vision-Impaired Teacher
Roberta Daily is with him each
day to assist in his school routine
and is always close his side.
"She's a very, very special and
wonderful lady," Mrs. Gillispie
said.
After two years at Polk
Community College are complet-
ed, Gonzalez plans to attend the

PCC Holds 'Groundbreaking'


For JD Alexander Center


A new Polk Community
College facility housed in the old
Lake Wales City Hall will be
named the JD Alexander Center,
President Eileen Holden
announced at groundbreaking
ceremonies held May 14.
State Senator Alexander
spearheaded the drive in the
Legislature to fund the $3.6 mil-
lion renovation of the building,
which opened in 1928 and served
as the Lake Wales City Hail until
1998.
It was severely damaged by
the 2004 hurricanes. Following
those storms, several community,
education, and governmental


leaders developed a plan to turn
the building over to PCC and con-
vert it into a modern academic
center serving southeast Polk
County. A partnership was forged
between PCC, the City of Lake
Wales, the Lake Wales Charter
Schools, and others in the com-
munity.
During the 18-month long ren-
ovation, the structure will be out-
fitted with five general education
classrooms, a large computer
classroom, and a first floor class-
room/meeting room that will be
available for community use.
PCC anticipates that the new
facility will have a substantial


impact on the local economy
starting with an estimated $1.1
million in construction spending
that will occur during the renova-
tion.
Among those participating in
the groundbreaking, held in a
large tent set up in front of the
building, were State Senator JD
Alexander, PCC student Jerry
Lewis, Rev. James Cleare, Pastor
of Allen Temple AME Church,
Lake Wales Mayor Alex Wheeler,
Lake Wales City Manager Tony
Otte, and PCC President Eileen
Holden.


Kids can take art classes all

during SummerArt Camp 2007.

and create some great artwork
and great friends while they are
here."
Children can take up to three
classes per day and each class

weeks.
There will be five sessions of

Jackets Reap Rewards
Student Achievements in the 06-07 Year

Bartow High School is known as the Home of Champions with good reason almost everything the students strive for, they achieve. This year brought many accomplishments for our talented
students, in many different categories of study. Students at Bartow have great leadership skills, as seen in Kathryn Mammel, who served as Chief Justice for Youth and Government in Washington,
the Code Blue Dance Captain, Jordan Galloway, and the Spanish Club President, Jenny-Claire Valenti.
Students also display a great knack for learning languages. For example, the Spanish students won First Place in the Spanish State Conference. In addition, Mark Kavesh won First Place in Talent,
and several perfect scores were received in the Dramatic Presentation, Impromptu Speaking, and Declamation. Mark Kavesh, Maggie Holland, Rachel Bouchillon, David Holdaway, and ltzel Arteaga
all qualified between the 95th and 99th national percentile on the National Spanish Exam. A French student, Andrew Heneen, received one of four French Government Scholarships at this year's
French State Competition in March. He won a ten day stay in Paris during the summer, in which he will be taking part in various cultural activities and excursions in and around the French capital.

Making History in Polk

BY YOLANDA DELACERDA AND BRETT HORN
Slistorv is about change and transition. The History Fair in Polk County at Bartow High School revolves around change,
transition, and achieving goals. BHS teacher Alisa Blaauw became involved in the first year of the Polk County History Fair
in 1999. The fair was an arm of a large national organization that celebrates the study of history on a wide scale. Teachers
throughout the country from elementary to high school lead half a million students in researching, planning and delivering
projects in a variety of ways.
As a graduate of West Virginia State College with a degree in social studies, it was only natural for Blaauw to involve
herself in the beginnings of History Day in Polk County, and this year that involvement paid off. Blaauw's student, Kaylie
Starling, a ninth grade student at BHS, advances to Nationals this June.
"In some ways," says Blaauw, "Kaylie reminds me of myself when I first got started with history fair. With each year, she
persevered." Indeed, Starling has taken the lessons shl learned from three year's participation in county and state competi-
tions to make her goal of advancing to Nationals.
"About 300 students participate in state competition," said Starling. With students coming from all 50 states, the nationals
take place in College Park, Maryland, June 10 through June 14.
Starling admitted to being both excited and scared about moving up to this all-important final level. "I'm excited because
I get to go to the final level for the very first time," she said.
Blaauw is confident that Kaylie will continue to do'well, as will the other Polk County participants advancing to Nation-
als. They include Abby Fishburn and Kent Stephan from McKeel Academy of Technology. The threesome is the first Polk
county students to advance to National History Day competition.
Starling's success has inspired Blaauw to join teacher Ted Wright in building a History Day program at BHS next year.
State winners, like Starling win cash, while National winners can gain up to $5000 in cash, scholarships and a wide variety
of other prizes depending upon their topic of study.
The projects, including Startling's Apollo 11 PowerPoint documentary, teach critical thinking and problem-solving skills,
research and reading skills, oral and written communication and presentation skills. The process also builds students confi-
dence and sense of responsibility. After all, without these, Startling and others wouldn't have had what it takes to stick with
their projects. Three years ago Starling brought a documentary and only made it to state competition. The second year she
made it to the runoffs, but for Starling, the third time has been the charm.


Student Wins Fish-

er Award Again
BY JILL SHAH
With a hint of irony, IB junior Jasmina Ouhri won the Robert J.
FisherAward for Excellence in Poetry for the second year in a row at
the Polk Country Poetry Awards on April 3 for her poem "Detritus."
The subject matter of the poem was what made the victory ironic.
"I based [the poeml on the trapped feeling I had after winning the
Fisher prize last year. I was sure there was no way to get even close
to that, so I felt like my past accomplishments were blocking me
from making any more," said Ouhri. "Detritus" described an indi-
vidual stranded on a desert island, gaining sustenancefrom grades,
and being trapped by past accomplishments.
When Ouhri learned that she had won, she was in shock. "They
read the poem out loud before they announce the winner, and the
moment I heard the first words, my legs started shaking. It was a
dream-like feeling because it just didn't seem like an even remote
possibility that I had actually won especially after what I had writ-
ten the poem about," Ouhri said.
The Fisher Award rewards the recipient one hundred dollars, a
trophy, and a $2500 scholarship to Florida Southern College. She
received this same prize for her poem last year, entitled "Poetr 's
Puppet." Ouhri's advice for those who are trying to write a poem
is to base it on something from their life. "I usually take a feeling
or emotion I've had from an experience in my life and turn it into a
story, an extended metaphor, like being stranded on an island. Then
rewrite, rewrite, rewrite!"

TI Girls' Tennis Team Wins


Districts Championship
BY TERAH TAGACAH

While some, on a Monday and Tuesday, may have been taking tests, sleeping in
class, or studying for upcoming up exams, others were playing tennis.
On April 16 and 17, Bartow's own varisty tennis team went to district champion-
ships and brought home first place titles from all top five players: Bhakti Kadiwar,
Maggie Holland, Shea Perez, Emily Bhutiani, and Emily Helm.
The team's record for the entire season consisted of no losses, making them unde-
feated.
"This was a good season," said third-ranked player Shea Perez, "and all of us get-
ting first in districts really made it feel like all of our hard work paid off." -
On the other hand, however, the team fell short at regionals held on April 20.
Second-ranked player Maggie Holland was unable to attend due to the Spanish State
Competition. This affected the team greatly.
"It was still so much fun," said fifth-ranked player Emily Helm. "Obviously, we
would like to have won. But under the circumstances,we did great and tried our
hardest."
With an undefeated record, winning districts, and attending regionals, the players
can look back on a fun and memorable season.
"We all think the season was an overall success," said Helm. "We grew close and
can't wait for next year's season to start."
