Design Change Coming


With First Issue in July


Beginning with our first
issue in July, our newspapers
will go to a slightly narrower
page width - 12-and-a-half
inches, compared to 14 inches at
present.
In conjunction with the
change in page width, we will be
redesigning the look of our
newspapers. The most dramatic
changes will be on the front
page and the editorial page.
While some design decisions
have been made - including a
new typeface for news stories -
others still are being studied.
The concept is to give our news-
papers a brighter, more exciting
look, and to make more effective
use of our four-color printing
capability.
The two primary reasons for
the new format:
* To meet a new industry
:standard for the convenience of
:.advertisers and advertising
agencies.
* To standardize with other
* Sun Coast Media Group news-
papers, so that in a crisis, all
:three Sun Coast printing plants
- in Bartow, Venice and
Charlotte - can back each
- other up.
The change will apply to all
three of our community newspa-
pers: The Polk County
Democrat, The Lake Wales
News, and The Fort Meade
Leader. Pages in our monthly
tabloid publication for Polk
County government employees


- Polk County Times - will
have the same page width, but
will be an inch-and-a-half short-
er.
Our last format change was
in the first issue of 2006, when
we reduced our page width from
16 inches to 14. We doubted that
our readers would even notice.
To the contrary, reader reac-
tion was swift and favorable; the
narrower page is easier for
readers to hold. We hope there
will be a similar reaction to our
upcoming change.
Until 30 or 40 years ago,
there was little uniformity in
page sizes and column widths in
the newspaper industry. This
was of little consequence to
small advertisers, but it was a
real problem for chains and
advertising agencies, which had
to prepare ad copy in a number
of different sizes.
In the late 20th century, the
industry moved toward a stan-
dard column width. And then
another. And then another.
Our newspapers adopted the
standard of the AAAA -
American Assn. of Advertising
Agencies - and not long after
that, the SAU, or Standard
Advertising Unit, became the
industry standard. So we adopt-
ed SAU, and continue to use it
today.
With the trend toward nar-
rower pages, the SAU standard
has changed, and we are adopt-
ing the new SAU column width


effective July 1.
Our column widths will be a
quarter-inch narrower - an
inch-and-three-quarters com-
pared to our present two-inch
columns.
In order to insure that our
readers get approximately the
same amount of news on a
slightly smaller page, we will
switch to a new typeface, called
Utopia. At present, we use New
Century Schoolbook.
Characters in Utopia are
slightly narrower, meaning that
the number of letters in a line
will be about the same as New
Century Schoolbook. Utopia
also is a more readable typeface.
Our advertising staff will
work with advertisers on con-
verting to the new column
widths. Any resizing of ad copy
will be achieved without cost to
our customers.
Advertisers with questions
may direct them to their regular
ad representatives or to our
general manager, Bob Bobber, at
533-4183.
Packaging and delivery of
news is constantly changing,
always with the objective of
doing the best possible job for
our readers and our advertisers.
We hope you'll be pleased
with the changes.

City Audit 'Cleanest


In Recent History'


$1.90 Stormwater Tax


Increase in Prospect


Bartow residents probably will
see a $1.90 per month increase in
the stormwater tax in October.
The city's stormwater tax ordi-
nance calls for an annual increase
in the tax tied to the Engineering
News Record construction cost
increase, but specifies that the
increase "shall be subject to
adjustments based on budgetary
requirements."
According to a report to be sub-
mitted to the city commission
tonight, that increase would take
the residential charge from $45 to
$46.90 unless the commission
chooses a different amount.
A resolution on tonight's agen-
da would increase the water and
sewer impact fees by 4.1 percent,
based on the same index. That
increase is automatic, but the city
is required to give notice by pass-
ing a resolution. Impact fees are
charged on new construction to
pay for the increased investment
in infrastructure needed to pay


the costs of serving new construc-
tion.
The commission will hold a
work session this afternoon at
5:30 at city hall,.and will recon-
vene for its regular business
meeting at 6:30. This will be the
first commission meeting since
the city voted 3-to-2 to approve a
negotiated dismissal agreement
with City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge,
terminating his employment
immediately.
One of the items on tonight's
agenda is a resolution ratifying
the commission's vote last
Tuesday to appoint City Clerk
Linda Culpepper as acting city
manager.
Other items on the agenda:
* A review of the commission's
policies and procedures manual.
* Scheduling of joint meetings
with advisory boards.
* Designation of the city's vot-
ing delegate to the Florida
League of Cities conference.


* Discussion of a charter
review commission and appoint-
ment of members to it.
* A proclamation regarding
Bartow's annual Fourth of July
celebration.
* Waiver of the city's prohibi-
tion on discharging fireworks to
allow the city-sponsored fire-
works display on July 4.
/ * An appointment to the code
enforcement board.
* Consideration of buying a
cemetery management program
for the Wildwood and Oak Hill
cemeteries, a computer program
that would help the city keep
track of burials and lot sales at
the two cemeteries.
* First reading with a public
hearing on an ordinance rewrit-
ing the city's stormwater tax ordi-
nance to adopt new terminology,
and first reading on a related
ordinance on the annual increase
in the tax.


Bartow's financial operations
have shown dramatic improve-
ment under the leadership of
David Wright as finance director,
Tierso Nunez, the city's external
auditor, told the city commission.
In presenting his audit report
for the 2005-06 fiscal year, Nunez
called it "probably the cleanest
audit report in recent history."
The report contains no adverse
comments, and the city's books
required "virtually no audit
adjustments" at year's end, he
said.
Profits from the city's busi-
ness-type activities are a major
source of revenue to support the
general operations of govern-
ment, such as public safety and
recreation programs.


The electric department
showed a surplus of nearly $6.7
million; water and sewer, $3.6
million. Property taxes generated
about $2.1 million, and public
service taxes and franchise fees
brought in $2.4 million. The city
received $1.5 million in state rev-
enue sharing funds, and slightly
more than $1 million on invest-
ment earnings.
"It's a tight budget; Bartow
has a big appetite," Nunez said.
But expenses were held within
the budget.
Nunez, who has been the city's
external auditor for nine years,
compared this year's audit with
the one he performed in 2003.
"Financial accounting was in
disarray," he recalled. "The state


of accounting records ... was
unacceptable," and the city "was
in a deteriorating financial condi-
tion."
The situation was so bad that
he recommended that City Mgr.
Joseph J. DeLegge replace the
finance director, Nunez said.
Under Wright's leadership, "the
trends have been reversed," he
said, adding, "It's the first time I
can, remember having hardly any
adjustments."
DeLegge commended his
department heads for staying
within their budgets, and
Commissioner James F.
Clements called for a round of
applause for Wright.

Fort Fraser Trailhead

Planned in Bartow


A new trailhead on the Fort Fraser Trail is being planned for the north side of Bartow. The city will
accept responsibility for maintenance of the new trailhead which will offer a resting spot for people using
the trail. The nearest trailhead now is in Highland City, on the east side of U.S. Highway 98. - Staff photo
by Peggy Kehoe


The City of Bartow will accept
responsibility for maintenance of
a planned new "trailhead" on the
Fort Fraser trail on the north
side of the city.
Trailheads offer a resting spot
for people using the trail, a rails-
to-trails project built in the old
railroad bed between Bartow and
Lakeland. It draws its name from
a fort once located near the trail.
The nearest trailhead at pre-
sent is in Highland City, on the
east side of U.S. Highway 98.
Asst. City Atty. Drew
Crawford told the city commis-
sion that he anticipates that the
Florida Dept. of Transportation


will deed the Bartow trailhead to
the city.
The FDOT is responsible for
construction and maintenance of
the trail.
City Mgr. Joseph J. DeLegge
said the Bartow trailhead will be
built near the communications
tower northwest of the parking
lot of the former Winn-Dixie
supermarket building.
Commissioners voted unani-
mously to accept the mainte-
nance responsibility, but directed
Crawford to negotiate for word-
ing to protect the city from legal
liability for injuries occurring at
the facility.

"Man, she sure can rattle the dust out of those instruments," John
M. Phillips said of Sylvia Spencer, the new organist/pianist at Asbury
United Methodist Church in Bartow. Born and raised in Lakeland,
Ms. Spencer started piano lessons at the age of 8, and was playing in
church when she was 10. Eight years ago, she moved to Englewood
and became the assistant music director at Englewood United
Methodist Church. She returned to this area in August, and became
involved with the Bartow High School chorus and drama group as
keyboard pianist. She currently resides in Bartow with her two pugs,
Napolean and Cleopatra. - Photo by John M. Phillips

Bartow Lions Told Insurance
Industry Is In 'Crisis Mode'


Crises in the Florida insurance

Services told Bartow Lions at
their June 12 luncheon meeting.

"Disaster victims have no race
or gender in our office," Ms.
Smart said.
Floridians have felt the results
of the 2004 hurricanes, either
directly or indirectly, through
increased insurance premiums
charged to pay for damages from
storms during that year, she said.-
Consumers who have insur-
ance problems may contact Ms.
Smart at 813-899-6160.

International Association of Fire

River area was a 'nursery' for the
colossal Megalodon shark. So you
may get lucky and find some
large shark's teeth.
"We saw two alligators along
the way - one huge, one small -
neither was a threat.
"After we paddled under the
railroad trestle, it was only 15
more minutes to the 'take-out'

about four-and-a-half hours, with
stops. There is a longer trip,
which debarks farther upriver,
around Gardner."


In 2006, 105 firefighters died
in the line of duty; already this
year, 26 have been lost.
The purpose of the Stand
Down is to reduce these deaths
and injuries by calling attention
to safety practices and improving
them. Stand downs have been
used by the military for years to
correct issues that have been
identified as a problem through-
out the ranks.

4 The Polk County Democrat


Like almost all Floridians, we raised our
voice to demand property tax relief.
Property values in the state in the past
couple of years have risen out of all pro-
portion to the Consumer Price Increase ...
or the ability of homeowners to pay them.
Long-time homeowners are protected by
the Save Our Homes Amendment, which
limits annual increases in property assess-
ments to three percent - about the
increase in the CPI. Buyers of new homes
have no such protection. Nor do owners of
rental and other commercial property.
We look forward to hearing a robust dis-
cussion of the two-pronged approach
taken by the Florida Legislature to solving
the problem last week: freezing next year's
taxes at this year's level, and requiring a
roll-back of 3 to 9 percent, based on growth
in taxes in the past few years.
This first step strikes us as reasonable,
perhaps even modest. Local governments
which have reaped' windfalls in the past
two or three years will be required to
return only part of the increase to the tax-
payers.
Less clear to us is the impact-of the pro-
posed "super exemption" amendment that
will be submitted to the, voters in January.
It would substitute an exemption of 75 per-
cent for the first $200,000 in homestead
value and'15 percent of the next $300,000
for the present $25,000 exemption.
Huh?
While it's hard to feel too sorry for some-
body living in a $500,000 house, this strikes
us as a way to penalize those who prefer to
invest their savings in a home, rather than
tlie stock market; a boat; a luxury car, or
whatever.
And we have not seen addressed the
issue of a curious Florida law that requires
property to be assessed at 15 percent less
than its fair market value.


Unfortunately, most taxpayers, we
believe, will vote in favor of any scheme
which appears to transfer the tax burden to
someone else, without undue considera-
tion for what it will do to schools and other
institutions of local government, or for
fairness to all taxpayers.
After all, Florida voters cast their ballots
to mandate a bullet train, and. to reduce
class sizes in public schools, in each case
without asking how much it would cost
and where the money would come from.
How long will a voter living in a
$200,000 home study an issue that would
reduce his taxable value from $175,000
(after homestead exemption) to $50,000
(with the "super exemption")? Will he
pause to ask if basic government services
can be maintained if he pays less than one-
third of his present taxes, or if other tax-
payers are being treated unfairly to benefit
himself?
We like the short-term revenue freeze
and roll-back.
This "super exemption" business
deserves a lot more study - probably
more study than it is likely to receive from
the voters.

How Much More Will Be Spent?


lBARTOW- I have followed
the trials and, tribulations that
have, resulted from the dissemi-
nation of the results of te morale
survey by: Di. Mel Jurado. I
understand that there are always
two sides to any story and that I
have only seen the side presented
in the media. .
Having stated that, I find the
whole situation embarrassing for
Bartow and its citizens. The com-
mission paid a credible agency to
provide a litmus test for employ-
ee morale. The survey had
numerous stakeholders' approval
prior, to implementation. Yet
when the results were less than
favorable it appears that some
folks are having problems taking
their medicine.


I understand that Mr. DeLegge
has been a catalyst in the progress
the City of Bartow has made
under his tenure and I applaud
him for those accomplishments.
However, based on the survey
.results, it appears that some of
this progress carried a heavy cost
for city employees.
What is extremely disturbing
to me is the final outcome of this
debacle. I waited patiently to see
how the city commission would
handle themselves in the wake of
all the uproar. I am sad to say that
I am very disappointed in their
actions.
The city commissioners are
responsible for being good stew-
ards of the taxpayers' dollars. Mr.
Huff, Mr. Longworth, and Mayor


Hinton, you failed your con-
stituents. You cost all of Bartow
$46,000. The termination packet
that was in place should have
been followed.
Comments made by Mr. Huff
stated that Mr. DeLegge's accom-
plishments in his tenure should
be acknowledged, thereby pro-
viding his reasoning for accept-
ing the severance package.
Excuse me, but weren't those
accomplishments acknowledged
with periodic raises throughout
his service?
If'other department heads face
termination I wonder how much
more money the commissioners
will throw away?

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

Where Civilized People Draw the Line


'Super Exemption' Idea


Needs Close Scrutiny


In that most brutally inhu-
mane instrument of national pol-
icy - warfare - mankind has
written certain rules to try to
limit the inhumanity.
They were conceived, perhaps,
with the twin goals of keeping
the mayhem - for both sides -
within certain bounds, and for
allowing for the recovery which
inevitably follows the cessation
of hostilities.
Founded in common sense,
many of these rules are codified
in the Geneva Convention.
These rules of land warfare
probably are best known for the
conventions on the treatment of
prisoners of war, the protection of
civilians, and the status of
refugees. But there are other, less-
er known conventions.
For a year or two of my 30-
year career as an officer in the
Florida National Guard, I was the
S-5 of the 53rd Infantry Brigade.
The S-5, or civil affairs officer, is
by far the least known of the staff
officer positions. ,
Familiar to every officer are
the S-1 (personnel and adminis-
tration), the S-2 (intelligence and
security), the S-3 (operations and
training), and the S-4 (logistics, or
in simpler terms, supply and
maintenance), and the executive
officer, who functions as chief of
staff. In my career, I held all of
these posts except S-2 and S-3.
Many headquarters don't even
have an S-5 (as the position is
known at brigade.level). At divi-
sion (general staff) level, the civil
affairs officer is known as the G-
5, and at joint staff level, as the J-


5.
Pay attention; this stuff might
be on the test.
My relatively brief assignment
as an S-5 was brought back to
memory by the reports from
Baghdad last week that some
idiot had destroyed what was left
of the once gold-domed Askariya
shrine in Samarra, which is locat-
ed some 70 miles north of
Baghdad. The mosque was
shelled once in February 2006,
destroying the gilded dome, and
again on June 13, destroying most
of what was left.
General David Petraeus, top
commander of U.S. forces in Iraq,
told reporters he had a "terrible
sinking feeling" when he learned
of the attack. And with good rea-
son.
Such symbols of a nation's her-
itage assume an importance that
far outweighs their financial
value, or their military signifi-
cance, if any. There are certain
potential targets which simply
are off limits to civilized people,
even combatants in time of war.
What does all of this have to
do with the task of the S-5/G-5/J-
5?
It is the civil affairs officer
whose duties include identifying
such cultural features, and
declaring them off limits to his
(or her) own forces.
In my career, I was never
involved in protecting mosques,
even in a training exercise. I did
set forth the rules for protection
of red-cockaded woodpeckers at
Eglin Air Force Base a couple of
decades ago. A real-life endan-

Too Generous With Tax Funds


'BARTOW - The Florida
Legislature is seeking to cut prop-
erty taxes while city and county
leaders predict serious budget
shortfalls because of it.
During the city commission
meeting on June 4, Bartow's
external auditor, Tierso Nunez,:
gave an "almost glowing" report
to the commission that Bartow
had achieved very good results
on its last audit. You could tell
this glowing report was not lost
on the commissioners if you were
watching their faces.
However, what was lost dur-
ing this presentation (by at least
three of the commissioners) was
the auditor's comment that
"Bartow could not rest on its lau-
rels because its budget is tight."
He further stated that "Bartow
has a big appetite."
We saw ,an example of
Bartow's "big appetite" on June
12 when our commission voted 3-
to-2 in favor of giving City Mgr.
Joe DeLeggee $174,154 to leave.
This is in place of the one-half
year's salary that his contract


called for upon his' termination.
DeLegge negotiated this contract.
The way I figure it, the most he
should have gotten was $95,526,
that being his one-half year's
salary and accumulated sick
leave and vacation time.
My greatest concern regarding
the above actions by three of our
longest sitting commissioners
was the message it sent to our
employees. I am very pleased
that Commissioners Jackson and
Clements expressed the same
concerns.
My next greatest concern is the
attempts to stifle citizen input:
speakers at the commission meet-
ings being held to three minutes
now instead of five, and refusal
to allow someone to give the
speaker additional minutes by
giving up your own appears to
have been taken away.
Meetings being called at the
last minute, preventing citizens
from attending. Mayor Hinton's
comments that he "hated that
they (commission) had to discuss
these matters in public." You are


an \elected official and you are
required to discuss these things
in public.
"If you can't take the heat, get
out of the kitchen."
It's done. We cannot change
that. I wish Mr. DeLegge the best
in his future endeavors.
However, we can change the atti-
tudes of the majority of the city
commission.
During the past several years,
when speaking of our commis-
sioners, I have labeled them the
"Good ol' Boys." Well, we have
three of the Good ol' Boys still sit-
ting on the commission. We need
to change that at the voting polls.
The next time each of these
three come up for re-election, I
will be right here to remind our
employees and citizens that want
good responsible government
that it's time for a change. We
need more good stewards of our
tax money on the commission
like Jackson and Clements.

gered species, it enjoyed protec-

But for training purposes, we
learned the importance of identi-
fying cultural treasures and
avoiding them. After all, every
war eventually comes to an end,
and when that day arrives, the
victor wants to have some basis
for reestablishing a sense of nor-
malcy with the vanquished foe.
,Look at America's relationship
today with Germany and Japan.
Or Great Britain, to go back a
couple of centuries and change.
A Shiite cleric declared that the
desecration could not have been
wrought by a Sunni, so it must
have been an American action.
Hardly.
Of all the errors - both mili-
tary and political - that America
may have committed in the war
in Iraq, gratuitously blowing up a
shrine is not likely to be one of
them.
Mistakes, even grievous mis-
takes, happen in warfare.
Blowing up the other guys
religious shrines goes beyond
mistakes; it is stupidity beyond
description.
Or conceivably evil beyond
description, committed to throw
suspicion on an adversary - the
U.S. in this case - who didn't do
it.
Petraeus' "terrible sinking
feeling" is well-founded.
Blowing up religious shrines is
not the action of civilized people,
even in time of war.

Is Stress Eating Affecting Your Waistline?


The Polk County Democrat


Being overweight has become a
national health issue. Yet despite
growing public awareness and
millions of dollars spent on all
types of diet plans, the problem
isn't disappearing.
One reason may be that people
often focus on their food choices,
but ignore the reasons why they
eat. And stress-related eating is
one of the biggest reasons for
overeating.
We live in a world full of stress.
From national tragedies to family
problems to traffic jams, we all
face situations that add stress to
our lives. And, unfortunately,
many of us react to that stress by
reaching for something to eat.
It's actually a natural reaction.
Many foods can affect our moods
and feelings. They may remind us
of better, simpler times (think
comfort foods), or may actually
bring chemical reactions that
make us feel better (think sugar
high), at least for a short while.


Over time, we learn that reaching
for that candy bar takes our mind
off our stress and actually leaves
us feeling better. And so we do it.
But how can you avoid using
food as a stress reliever?
Start by looking at when and
why you're eating. Try keeping a
diary for a few days of when you
eat, what you eat and what you're
feeling at the time. You may find
that without realizing it, the
times when you're 'snacking
unhealthily are the times when
you're feeling not hungry, but
simply stressed.
A next step is accepting that
the food you're consuming is actu-
ally doing nothing to relieve your
stress. Food doesn't make prob-
lems go away, and may even
increase stress by leaving you
feeling guilty about overeating
and excessive weight gain.
Rather than reaching for more
food, start analyzing the sources
of stress in your life and what you


might be able to do to reduce or
manage that stress. Look to non-
food related activities, like exer-
cising, reading a book or just tak-
ing a walk. Spending time with
friends or family can help. Often
simply being aware of what trig-
gers your stress-related eating is
enough to help you avoid it.
It isn't easy to overcome stress-
related eating, but it can be done.
If your eating problem is a serious
one that's affecting your health,
consider consulting a professional
counselor who specializes in this
area.

Smart Swimming


Fuel for swimmers
Swimming is hard work.
Swimmers use their arms, legs and
torso to move through the water. To
get the energy they need, swimmers
should eat healthy foods.
Experts in nutrition at USA
Swimming gave The Mini Page some
tips about which foods and drinks
help provide the energy to swim well.
* Drink water or sports drinks
early and often during practice,
about every 15 minutes. Without flu-
ids, your body can't work as well.
* Healthy foods supply the body
with energy. These foods include:
* Carbohydrates: bread, pasta, cereal
* Protein: peanut butter, lean meat
Solve oil, n fish




* Avoid carbonated drinks such as
soda; they make you feel bloated, or
blown up.
* Avoid drinks with
caffeine; they cause
your body to lose fluid.


Swim safety





C,


m a
This is Longfellow, the American Red
Cross' friendly WHALE (Water Habits Are
Learned Early). He reminds kids how to
be safe in the water.


Read the posted
rules and obey
them.


Swim in an area
supervised by a life-
guard.
POOL RULES







Watch out for dan-
gerous "too's": too
tired, too sun-
burned, too cold.


Swimming is a great way to have
fun and exercise. Longfellow's WHALE
Tales, or tips, help kids remember the
rules about water safety.
Longfellow is named after Wilbert
E. Longfellow. In 1914, he started a
campaign to teach water safety.
The first thing you can do to be safe
in or near the water is learn to swim.
You should always swim with a buddy,
never alone.
Here are some more tips from the
Red Cross:


Jump feet first into
the water instead of
diving.


Wear a life jacket
if you are not an
experienced
swimmer.


Pay attention to
water depth, and
be aware of lad-
ders and ropes.

Everybody Into the Pool!


Sensational Team Swimmers


Is there a pool near your home?
Does it have a swim team?
Many kids have fun competing in
organized events called swim meets.
To make the team, kids should be
good at one or more of the four
strokes: freestyle, butterfly, breast-
stroke and backstroke.


o 0
0;. 7�


The diagrams on this page show two of
the four swimming strokes and how
they're done. This one is freestyle.
They practice and do their best to
help the team win. Parents help by
making sure kids get to practices and
meets.
Who's in the pool? To find out, The
Mini Page spoke with experts at USA
Swimming, the governing organization
for competitive swimming.




This is the butterfly.
More than 2.5 million kids across
the United States are on swim teams
at their local pool. Most USA
Swimming members are between the
ages of 6 and 12. Some kids swim
year-round. Many go on to swim in
high school and college.
Young kids may participate in all
events. As their bodies grow, they may
find one or two events they like best.


"My best stroke right now is probably my butterfly, but I'm improving on my freestyle,"
says Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps. He is working toward the Olympic trials and
,making the USA team for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China.


The 2004 Summer
Olympics were sen-
sational for Michael
Phelps. He brought
4 e home eight medals
.. (six gold) from
S Athens, Greece.
. This March in
. Melbourne,
Australia, Phelps set
a world record in
the 200-meter freestyle at the World
Championships. He broke his own world
record in the butterfly.
Phelps, 21, goes to the University of
Michigan. He was born in Baltimore, where
he swam for the North Baltimore Aquatic
Club. He answered a few questions about
himself for The Mini Page.
What made you want to com-
pete?
"I have always been competitive, so
it was natural for me to want to race."


How does your family support
you?
"My mom and my sisters have been
so supportive of me through the years.
I couldn't do what I've been doing
without their constant love and sup-
port."
Do you have a good luck charm?
"Before I race, I always swing my
arms and slap my back."
What does it take to win?
"Hard work and dedication are the
foundation of my success. At one point,
I went five years straight without tak-
ing a single day off from swimming."
What is your favorite ...
Food? "Steak."
TV show? "SportsCenter."
Book? "Bringing Down the House."
Movie? "Tommy Boy."

Swim Meet Basics


Have you ever been to a swim
meet? Events move quickly. Crowds
yell and cheer on their favorite
swimmers.
Here are some of the things you
might see at a swim meet.
Events and heats
An event features a certain stroke
over a set distance. For example, a
swimmer might swim a 100-meter
freestyle.
If there are more swimmers than
there are lanes in the pool, there will
be "heats." If there are 12 swimmers
in the 100-meter freestyle but only
10 lanes, there might be two heats of
six swimmers.




This is the backstroke.


Swimmers
begin their
events by div-
ing off
"blocks," or
platforms at
the end of the
pool. Most I'" ,"'
blocks have a .
handle at the
bottom where "
swimmers
hang on before 7'
they start back-
stroke events.


The competition
Swimmers may swim in order
based on their "seed times." This
means that swimmers with similar
times in an event will compete
against each other.
At some meets, swimmers are
grouped by age.


A hero in the pool
Did you see a movie last spring
called "Pride"? It's about Jim Ellis, a
I a swim coach in inner-city Philadelphia.
About 30 years ago, Ellis gave African-
American kids a chance to compete in
the pool. Some of his teams were big
winners.
In May, Ellis received the 2007
President's Award from the
i International Swimming Hall of Fame
in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. We asked him
a few questions about his
career in swimming.
Jim Ellis is still coaching today. Here he
works with a swimmer during practice.
What does a coach do?
Laughing, Ellis says, "I just throw 'em in the water!"
Seriously, Ellis says he tries to help kids understand the
benefits of working hard, learning to set goals and having
better judgment. These qualities will help them all "I just love the
through their lives, water," Ellis says.
What's the hardest thing about coaching kids' swimming?
"There's nothing hard about it. I enjoy what I'm doing."
He adds that the challenge is convincing parents that the hard work won't
hurt their kids.


What do swimmers wear?
Boys usually wear tight-fitting,
short racing suits, or "jammers,"
which are a little longer. Girls wear
one-piece suits.
Some swimmers wear caps to con-
trol their hair. This also helps them
to move through the water faster.
Most swimmers also wear goggles
to protect their eyes from the chemi-
cals in the pool.

o


This is the breaststroke.
The officials
At a swim meet, you may see:
* a referee, who enforces the rules
and makes sure all the other officials
are being fair;
* a starter, who sounds a horn or
shoots a cap gun to start a race;
* a stroke judge, who watches to
make sure the stroke is being done
correctly;
* a turn judge, who makes sure
the swimmers start, finish and turn
correctly at the end of the lane.

The Mini Page thanks Jamie Fabos, com-
munications director for USA Swimming,
and the American Red Cross for help with
this issue.
