Summer Adventures:

A Visit To The Rainbow River


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

It's very hot outside, and the temperature seems to be
rising every day.
On the Rainbow River, however, it's a cool 72 degrees.
A few weeks ago, practically melting from the brisk
hot air, I set off toward Dunnellon with Heather Kelly
and Gene Roberts, hoping for a relaxing ride down the
Rainbow River.
The trip to Dunnellon is not short. It involves a trek
down 1-75 and another trek 20 miles into the heart of
Marion County.
The trip through the county was interesting, however.
Adjacent to horse country, Dunnellon offered many
chances to spot beautiful, graceful horses, a few goats,
and, on one opportunity, miniature horses.
As a side note, did you know that they can train
miniature horses as guides for the blind? One, Cuddles,
has become quite famous. Visit www.guidehorse.org for
information about these talented little animals.
I, being a horse lover, noted each appearance with
"Oh look, horses!" Sometimes, for variety, I noted the
color - "Oh look, brown horses."
As there are approximately 9,000 of them to be seen,
this may have become a little wearing to my compan-
ions. Seeing my child-like delight however, they failed to
complain.
As we neared the river, we noted more and more cars
on the road with canoes, kayaks and other small boats,
but I failed to accurately grasp just how busy the river
would be.
We arrived before noon, and found both parking lots
full and our only parking option to be on a grassy lane,
about a half-mile from the park.


My best advice is to arrive early. Gina Peebles, admin-
istrative manager for Marion County Parks, reported
almost 29,000 people visited K.P. Hole Park during April,
May and June, and most visit on weekends.
"It's best to try to get there early, that way you can
really enjoy the heat of the day," she said.
Parking might be a little closer, as well.
I own a tube, and so did one of my companions, but
the other was tubeless, leading us to rent from the park.
I was worried that, from the amount of cars, tube
rentals may not be available, but it was no problem.
Entry into the park is $3 per person, and the park fea-
tures picnic tables, a swimming area, locker rooms, lock-
ers, grassy areas for relaxing, and tube, life vest, canoe,
diver down flag, and oar rentals.
Renting a tube costs $9 and features a shuttle ride
from the float end to the park. Shuttle tickets also are
available for those who own a tube as well.
Bring identification, as rental requires it.
On the day we visited, the park was fully-staffed, and
within a short amount of time, we had paid admission
and rented a tube.
Those of us owning our own tube procured quarters
and headed to the air pumps. I would advising blowing
up your float before visiting the park, as this was, by far,
the longest wait. The park offers four air stations, but
these fill fast, and the line can get rather long.
For the princely sum of $17, (two dollars in quarters to
fill the tubes) we were in the park.
After a generous 'slathering with a high-SPF sun-
screen, and a locker rental for our identification, car
keys, dry clothes and towels, we were ready to hit the
water.
When packing for a trip to the river, I advise you bring

SIGNS OF PROTEST - The Republican Women's Club of Regional Medical Center. Members staged a protest in front
Lakeland voted unanimously last week to pass a resolution to of the hospital at lunch today. - (Staff photo)
oppose the closing of the obstetrics services at the Bartow


28 Doctors Ask To Postpone OB Closure


Twenty-eight doctors who practice
at Bartow Regional Medical Center
have signed a petition urging the hos-
pital to delay the closing of obstetrics
service at the hospital until the present
patients of Dr. Ralph Nobo and Dr.
Mario Encinas have had their babies.
The hospital announced in June
that it would close OB services on
Saturday July 28.
The petition reads:
"Concerning the health of pregnant
women and their unborn child, we the
undersigned Bartow Regional Medical
Center (BRMC) physicians request
Health Management Associates
(HMA) and BRMC to extend the clo-
sure date of the obstetrical unit so that


patients under the care of Doctor
Encinas and Doctor Nobo may be
delivered by the physicians that know
their obstetrical history best, in a
familiar and safe environment."
Signers of the petition are:
* Dr. Mario Encinas
* Dr. Ralph Nobb
* Dr. Sara Evans
* Dr. Mahmudul Haque
* Dr. Ananth Pillai
* Dr. Larry Thomas
* Dr. Ned Panara

Opposes Bartow

OB Unit Closure


The Bartow Breakfast
Rotary Club went on record
today in opposition to the
closing of obstetrics services
at Bartow Memorial Hospital
on Saturday, July 28.
"It is the clear wishes of
the citizens of Bartow that
this closing not take place,"
the club said in a letter to the
hospital.
"Bartow has provided
obstetrics services for at
least 80 years, and as a mat-
ter of fact, the sale of the
hospital to private interests
was originally predicated on
the agreement that obstet-
rics and emergency services
would remain available
throughout the life of the
corporation.
"The choice of entering
into community healthcare
should entail more than just
a desire for the maximum
profit. Services to the com-
munity should also be a con-
sideration.
, "The financial bottom
line certainly should not be
the only consideration in a
decision of this magnitude.
It is generally accepted that


OB and emergency services
are not major profit centers
for hospitals. Should the cit-
izens of Bartow now be wait-
ing for the other shoe to
drop?
"It is also our concern that
continuation of the appar-
ent indifference to basic
public relations that you
have displayed may result in
members of the community
avoiding your facility for the
other services that you offer.
"Bartow is obviously a
major growth area. While
adjacent counties are con-
sidering closing public
school facilities because of a
decrease in enrollment, Polk
County continues to grow.
Bartow and the surrounding
area have plans for literally
thousands of new homes,
starter homes that usually
translate into births and
classrooms.
"Your decision does not
get ahead of the curve; it
avoids the curve and the
responsibilities of the indus-
try of which you choose to
be a part."


22 Arrested in PCSO's Third Online Predator Sting


A total of 22 men were arrested between
July 19 and today, charged with soliciting
sex from a child via the internet during
Operation Guardian, an undercover opera-
tion led by the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
The two-week-long operation also
included detectives, officers, and special
agents from the Internet Crimes Against
Children (ICAC) Task Force, the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE),
Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE), and the Plant City Police
Department, working in conjunction with
members of the State Attorney's Office and
Attorney General Bill McCollum's Office of
Statewide Prosecution.
The multi-agency effort, directed by
PCSO detectives, is the third such operation
conducted in Polk County. Undercover
detectives used chat rooms and instant
messaging to direct suspects to the loca-
tion.
Those arrested either lived or were stay-


ing in cities throughout Florida and trav-
eled to Polk County to the undercover loca-
tion with the purpose, of having sex with a
child, PCSO Public Information Officer
Carrie Rodgers said. Their ages and occupa-
tions were varied.
One suspect is a youth hockey coach in
Orlando, one is a volunteer firefighter, and
one is a former deputy sheriff from Marion
County and currently employed by the
Department of Homeland Security. Another
is a registered sex offender from the state of
Ohio, and one man paid $75 cab fare to
come to the house from the Rosen Plaza
Hotel in Orlando, Rodgers said.
"This operation is an excellent example
of what cooperation between federal, state
and local law enforcement can accom-
plish," McCollum said. "These individuals
would have victimized helpless children
were it not for the efforts of these dedicated
men and women fighting for the safety of
Florida's youngest citizens. My office will


work to ensure that these internet child
predators will be shown no mercy in the
courtroom, just as they would have shown
no mercy towards their intended victims."
Those arrested, in order of arrest, were:
Robert Hartmann, 19, of Rockledge, Fla.,
self-employed laborer/painter; tranrsmis-
sion of material harmful to a minor, receiv-
ing computer statement for the purpose of
sexual conduct with a child, use of a com-
puter to seduce a child, attempted lewd
battery.
Dennis Cardoso, 27, of Davenport, sales
representative for Southern Wine Spirit;
solicit a minor via the Internet, receiving
computer statement for the purpose of sex-
ual conduct with a child, use of a computer
to seduce a child, attempted lewd battery.
Keith Kenneth Alleyne, 21, of Kissimmee,
unemployed; solicit a minor via the
Internet, receiving computer statement for
the purpose of sexual conduct with a child,
use of a computer to seduce a child,


attempted lewd battery.
Nathan Christopher Galbraith, 22, of

ful to a minor (12 counts), solicit a minor

Gouvellis To Head Polk


Papers; Frisbie Promoted


Jim Gouvellis, vice-presi-
dent/news and executive
editor of the Sun
Newspapers, has been
named to manage the com-
pany's newly-acquired
newspapers in Central
Florida.
Gouvellis will take on the
newly-created positions of
vice-president/Polk opera-
tions and publisher of The
Lake Wales News, and asso-
ciate publisher of The Polk
County Democrat, The Fort
Meade Leader, and Polk
County Times. His new posi-
tion will include overall
responsibility for Sun Coast
Media Group's Polk County
newspapers.
"I am excited about this
move," Gouvellis said
Thursday. "To be asked to
work along side the likes of
S. L. and Mary Frisbie is like
being offered the chance to
receive a doctorate in news-
paper publishing."
The Sun's parent compa-
ny - Sun Coast Media
Group - purchased the Polk
County newspapers and
their parent company,
Frisbie Publishing Co., Inc.,
from the Frisbie family on
Jan. 1, 2007. At the time of
the sale, S.L. Frisbie, I, was
named associate publisher
of The Democrat, The News,
The Leader, and Polk County
Times.
He once again will take on
the role of publisher of The
Democrat, The Leader and
Polk County Times, the posi-
tion he held before the sale.
Bob Bobber will remain
general manager of all four
newspapers, and will divide
his time between the Bartow,
Lake Wales, and Fort Meade
offices.


Jim Gouvellis


David Dunn-Rankin,
publisher of the Sun
Newspapers said, "Jim
helped The Sun become a
nationally recognized news-
paper. He is ready to run all
aspects of a newspaper
operation. I'm excited we
were able to find someone
within the organization with
his enormous talent to help
grow our Polk County busi-
ness."
Gouvellis has been a Sun
Coast Media newsroom
employee for more than 26
years, beginning his career
in June 1981 as a staff writer
for the Venice Gondolier. He
later became editor of the
Englewood Sun and news
editor of the Gondolier
before assuming the posi-
tion of editor of the Sun in
1986.
"Nqt many editors get to
say they were the editor of
the same newspaper for
more than 20 years," he said.
"I feel honored that I was
given that opportunity.
Along the way, we created a
great community weekly
newspaper and turned it
into one of the best commu-
nity daily newspapers."
Chris Porter will assume
the editor's duties from
Gouvellis. Porter, a. graduate
of Maryville (Tenn.) College,
has been with Sun Coast
Media for 19 years. Porter
began his career as sports
editor of the Loudon County
(Tenn.) News Herald. He is a
former staff writer for the
Venice Gondolier, editor of
the Englewood Sun, and city
editor in Charlotte before
being named managing edi-
tor in 2005.
John IIackworth has been
named managing editor of
the Sun newspapers.
Hackworth was hired by the
Sun in 1994 to be its busi-
ness editor. He served as
Charlotte city editor before
taking over as editorial page
editor in 1997.
Hackworth, -a graduate of
Marshall University, began
his career with the
Huntington (W.Va.) Herald-
Dispatch and came to the
Sun from the Myrtle Beach
(S.C.) Sun News, where he
worked as assistant city edi-
tor and editor of the news-
paper's weekly Neighbors
sections.
Lorraine Schneeberger
has been promoted from her
position as city editor to
Charlotte editor.


Schneeberger, a , former
Englewood Sun editor and
reporter, will be in charge of
all Charlotte editorial prod-
ucts including the Punta
Gorda and Port Charlotte
Heralds.
Schneeberger, a graduate
of the University of Florida,
is a former assistant city edi-
tor for the Naples Daily
News.
Frisbie began his career
with Frisbie Publishing Co.
at the age of 12 as a newspa-
per carrier, and as a high
school student, supervised
the paper's carrier force.
He worked three years as
a reporter at The Tallahassee
Democrat while a student at
Florida State University, and
rejoined the family business
in 1964 after completing two
years of service with the
Army in Washington, D.C.
He also joined the Florida
National Guard that year,
retiring from the Guard 30
years later with the rank of
colonel.
His full-time career at The
Democrat began as manag-
ing editor. He was promoted
to general manager in 1976,
to publisher in 1981, and to
president of the company in
2004.
During his tenure, Frisbie
Publishing Co. established a
Fort Meade edition (now The
Fort Meade Leader), created
Polk County Times (a
monthly niche publication
for employees of Polk
County government), and
purchased The Lake Wales
News.
He was the fourth genera-
tion of the Frisbie family to
head the publishing compa-
ny founded by his grandfa-
ther and great-grandfather
in 1931.
"I could not be more
pleased with Jim's appoint-
ment as publisher of The
Lake Wales News," Frisbie
said. "It has been a long-
time goal of mine to see a
separate publisher for The
News, which has tripled in
size since we purchased it in
1998.
"Jim and I have estab-
lished a close working rela-
tionship on all of our Polk
County publications, as well
as a genuine friendship. I
recommended to the Dunn-
Rankins that he become Sun
Coast's executive to oversee
the company's operations in
Polk County."

Decision Approaching

On Tearing Down

Old Cigar Factory


The days of the historic
Thompson Cigar Factory
building in Bartow may be
numbered.
Polk County commission-
ers will consider a recom-
mendation from the facili-
ties management division
on Wednesday, July 25, to
demolish the building.
Located at 255 North
Third Ave., the building was
one of many in Central
Florida in which cigars were
rolled by hand 50 years and
more ago.
With the decades-old
embargo on Cuban tobacco,
cigar factories have just
about disappeared from
Florida.
The county has owned the
building for many years, and
most recently used it as a


distribution point for sur-
plus commodities to low
income families.
In recent years, it has
been boarded up, populated
only by varmints.
Several efforts have been
initiated to clean up and
renovate the building, either
for public use, such as an art
center, or private develop-
ment, such as an office
building. None has proven
successful.
- At Wednesday's meeting,
the commission will consid-
er a staff recommendation
to tear down the building "as
a matter of public health,
safety and welfare in addi-
tion to the highest and best
use."
The commission will
meetat 9 a.m. at the county
administration building.

Bartow Postmaster Jim
Dale was the guest speaker
at the July 17 luncheon
meeting of the Bartow Lions
Club.
A veteran of 22 years of
postal service, Dale is
Bartow's 28th postmaster
and has held the post for two
years.
The local post office now
handles 75,000 pieces of
mail daily, runs 17 delivery
routes, services more than
11,000 customers with 36
employees, and is quite effi-
cient, competitive, and
shows a profit, Dale said.
The Bartow building was
constructed in 1917, and has
had additions to the south
and east sides since that
time. When the building
underwent a fact life in
recent years, the original
blue prints were used to
assure that specifications
were up to beginning stan-
dards, he said.
"The office of postmaster
was a political appointment
until 1972," he said, "yet in
the 22 years I have been in
the postal service, I have
only met one postmaster
who was a political
appointee."
In 1972, the U.S. Postal
Service was charged with
operating their own income
and operating at a profit
which they now achieve.
With the 11-digit zip
codes now in use, he said,
each house is now identified
as a unique and specific
address.
The postal service also
now offers pickup services,
where customers may log on
to usps.com, submit a
Carrier Pickup request, and
have their package picked
up free of charge the next
delivery day.

'Being Drought Smart'


Report Released


Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) released "Being
Drought Smart," a report
identifying water use effi-
ciency measures that can
help in the current drought
and also better prepare the
state for future drought situ-
ations.
The report provides rec-
ommendations for agricul-
tural operations; public
water supply; and commer-
cial and industrial practices
and programs.
"It is likely that such
responses will always be
necessary in times of severe
water shortage brought on
by drought, but we can
reduce the frequency of
drought crises by being
more 'drought smart' in our
usage every day," said DEP
Secretary Michael W. Sole.
"In times of water shortage,
effective conservation
allows more users to share
the limited water available."
Being Drought Smart
identifies a number of
short- and mid-term recom-
mendations evaluated in
terms of drought respon-
siveness, water saved, cost-
effectiveness and ease of
implementation.
Recommendations
include more mobile irriga-
tion labs to improve water
use efficiency in agriculture,
providing goal-based water
conservation plans for pub-


lic water utilities, and
installing rain sensors on
automated irrigation sys-
tems.
In response to the 2007
drought, DEP, in coordina-
tion with the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the South Florida
Water Management District
and the Florida Division of
Emergency Management,
produced the Florida
Drought Action Plan in
April.
The agencies worked
closely with Conserve
Florida, a group established
to provide information and
tools to improve water con-
servation through the devel-
opment of utility-specific,
goal-based water conserva-
tion programs, to develop
the Action Plan recommen-
dations.
Among the tasks in that
plan is the development of
practical recommendations
and policy changes to allevi-
ate the severity of future
droughts in Florida.
Implementation of the rec-
ommendations in both the
Florida Drought Action Plan
and the Being Drought
Smart Report will require
collaborative efforts by
many federal, state and
local agencies as well as
other organizations such as
the Florida Section of the
American Water Works
Association, the Florida


Water Environment
Association and the Florida
Rural Water Association.
The necessity for such
measures is highlighted by
current drought conditions
throughout the state, partic-
ularly in South Florida.
In past droughts, the
region has been able to rely
on the storage capabilities
of different regions of the
watershed, such as .the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes,
the Water Conservation
Areas and Lake
Okeechobee. Never before
have all three of these
regions had critically low
water levels at the same
time.
In response to the current
drought, the South Florida
Water Management District,
for the first time in its histo-
ry, issued Phase III water
shortage orders (45 percent
reduction goal) for several
regions.
While Being Drought
Smart focuses on improving
water use efficiency as a
drought response, the state
is also encouraging the
development of drought-
resistant alternative water
supplies.

Drought Smart Report, visit

Red Cross Completes Busy Year


American Red Cross Polk
County Chapter just finished
another year on June 30,
having responded to 139 dis-
asters - almost all home
fires - and helping more
than 480 clients with emer-

Volunteers
Needed For
Good Shepherd
Hospice

Volunteers are the heart
of Good Shepherd Hospice,
and the organization is seek-
ing compassionate individu-
als who desire to help hos-
pice patients and their fami-
lies by volunteering one-to-
four hours each week.
Volunteers provide com-
panionship for terminally-ill
patients and assistance to
their caregivers.
Good Shepherd Hospice
will hold free volunteer
training starting Aug. 18 in
the East Polk area.
To register or for more
information on volunteer-
ing, contact Nina Gilbert at
551-3979.
Registration, a completed
application and a pre-train-
ing meeting with a Good
Shepherd Hospice volunteer
coordinator are required
prior to the start of training.
Volunteers are needed, to
help patients throughout the
Good Shepherd service
areas of Polk, Highlands and
Hardee counties. Good
Shepherd Hospice also
offers other fulfilling and
challenging volunteer
opportunities, such as sup-
plying office support; work-
ing at Life's Treasures, the
organization's thrift store;
staffing special events; and
providing massage therapy
or hair styling services.

responded to another five
home fires, and assisted
another 31 people.
Any day of the week, no
matter what time of the day
or night, local American Red
Cross Disaster Action Team
volunteers respond to disas-
ters. Each case is different.
Clients may need tempo-
rary shelter; emergency
assistance for food or cloth-
ing; a personal hygiene kit;
or sometimes a stuffed ani-
mal toy or blanket, such as
those donated to the local
Red Cross, to help relieve the
pain.
The first question volun-
teers always ask is if a client
has a place to stay with fam-
ily or friends. That support
can help promote healing
faster than staying in tempo-
rary lodging. In a crisis, peo-
ple normally turn to their
families.
In the weeks after a disas-
ter, Red Cross volunteers
and staff continue to work
with clients to see that they
are doing well.


In each case, the
American Red Cross applies
the principles of the
International Red Cross and
Red Crescent Movement, by
bringing assistance without
discrimination as to nation-
ality, race, religious beliefs,
class or political opinions.
The Red Cross relieves
suffering based on needs
and through the work of vol-
unteers, freely giving their
time and skills..
The American Red Cross
is always looking for volun-
teers, from all backgrounds,
who are willing to use their
skills, talents, and genuine
compassion to help anyone
with immediate emergency
needs.

State Universities Need Funding Relief


State colleges are coming up with
all sorts of methods to deal with a
shortfall in funding from the state.
We believe the Legislature should
reconsider its priorities in the future
and do more to avoid impacting the
opportunity for Floridians to follow
their dream of a higher education.
It wasn't supposed to be like this.
While the Legislature and Gov.
Charlie Crist can do little to avoid
the recession that much of the coun-
try and Florida is slipping into, the
shortfall in funding for higher edu-
cation is troubling.
Legislators directed each state
agency - and university - to cut
funding by about 4 percent due to


shortfalls in expected sales tax rev-
enues and because of the process
through which the Legislature funds
enrollment. The declaration is in
sharp contrast to the budget sur-
pluses we experienced the past few
years under Gov. Jeb Bush.
The free spending that lawmakers
enjoyed has come to an abrupt halt.
What it all means, in the short
term, is less of an opportunity for
someone to get a college education
and the possibility that the quality of
that education will be denigrated
because of larger class sizes.
The University of Florida, one of
the state's three flagship institutions,
will lose between $20 and $30 mil-


lion in funding. That has prompted
UF to institute a hiring freeze.
UF has formed a task force of fac-
ulty, staff and students to identify
other ways to save money. That
could include reducing energy costs;
trying to get suppliers to lower their
prices; outsourcing some activities
and functions; or increasing the
number of credit hours undergradu-
ates take each semester, which
would allow them to graduate soon-
er.
A spokesman for the University of
South Florida said that school is


streamlining classes, and perhaps
even a cap on enrollment.
None of these solutions are ideal.
Florida's university system should
be, and can be, a model for other
states to emulate. It is embarrassing
to see student enrollments capped,
class enrollment enlarged, and other
actions taken that ultimately will
hurt our image and impact students'
opportunities.
We believe Governor Crist needs
to reconsider his veto of a 5 percent
increase in tuition, and lawmakers
should look for other areas where


considering several steps to accom- they can save money.

I I Like Choosing My Bosses


DIRT ROAD DIARIES / By C. J. MOSER

The Screwdriver Dilemma


Willie, my son Jake's best
friend through middle
school, was a country boy
through and through. He's
about grown now, but the
memories he left behind will
always be with me, and I
have a fondness for him that
I suspect will always be
there.
His name came up the
other day, and I couldn't
help remembering one of
the last memories he left me
with.
- It started out with a com-
plaint about the fact that his
father would not give him a
screwdriver.
"1I won't ever catch anoth-
er wild hog if I don't find me
a screwdriver."
Being just that naive, I
had no idea how to catch a
hog with a screwdriver, so I
opened up the following can
of worms completely by
accident.
"What do you need the
screwdriver for?"
.�"Well, I got a rope tied to
the door on the hog trap. The
door slides up and down,
you see. I wrap the rope
around the bottom of the
screwdriver under the han-
dle, and I shove it down in
the dirt inside the pen, then I
pour some corn around the
screwdriver. The hog comes
along, goes in the pen and
roots around for the corn.
"Eventually' he pushes the
screwdriver out of the
ground and the door slams
shut on him."
I was irmpie.sed with the
simple ingenuity ... a coun-
;try boy will sur\ie.
' "That's a really good
idea," I said. "So what hap-
pened to the screwdriver
you've been using?"
"I reckon that mushroom
boy stole it," he said, frown-
ine, ...


"Who?"
"Aw, there's this boy I keep
catching on our property. I,
see him every now and then,
and chase him away. He lives
somewhere nearby. One day
I caught him diggin' around
out there. He said he was
looking for some mush-
rooms cause he was gonna
make him some mushroom
tea. That's what he said, but I
think he was; trying to get
high. You know some of
those mushrooms will make
you...
"Yeah, I know," I replied.
"But he's a thief, cause he
stole one of the panels off
my hog trap and I found it at
his house." He shrugged. "I
just stole it right back."
I gazed at Willie. The
memory was making him
mad - I could see it in his
jaw.
"So you're pretty sure he
stole the screwdriver, too."
"Yep."
"Is this some special
screwdriver or something? I
mean you know you can buy
one for a couple of bucks at
the hardware store."
His bottom lip came out a
half-inch or so, and his jaw
got square and tight again.
"It was my dad's, and he
said find it or he'll never give
me another tool to use. He's
real picky about his tools.
Besides ... his dad gave it to
him," he said, and grimaced.
Starting to see the seri-
ousness of the situation, I
said, "So what're you going
to do about it?"
"Well, I went over to his
house and I yanked him up
off the porch where he was
sitting , and I shook him, and I
said 'You better give me my
screwdriver.'"
"And?"
"He said he didn't have it,
but I didn't believe him and I


told him if I ever caught him
with it I'd beat him to a pulp.
He ain't nuthin' but a drug-
gie and a thief."
"Well, those two things do
tend to go hand in hand," I
said, and Willie nodded.
"Then one day I chased
him down the dirt road - he
was on his bicycle and I was
in the cab tractor." He
laughed. "You should' seen,
the chain on that bicycle
smoking ! He had no place to
go, there was ditches on
either side. I wasn't going to
run him over, but he didn't
know that."
He laughed again and
then frowned.
"I reckon he probably
stole that bicycle, too."
I wanted to give Willie a
screwdriver, but knew it
could never replace the one
that had been given to his
dad by his grandfather.
Besides, I suspected his dad
was trying to teach him
something about responsi-
bility, and taking care of
property that you borrow,
but there was also a little
part of me that wanted to see
Willie teach mushroom boy
a little thing or two about
respect for other people's
property.
I don't know how it all
ended up.
I imagine Willie finally
realized the futility of trying
to get the screwdriver back,
and focused on some way to
make it up to his dad, but if
there's any justice, maybe
one day mushroom boy will
forget himself and he'll leave
that screwdriver laying
around, and Willie will get it
back.
I have no doubt that Willie
has the determination and
the patience to wait. I could
see it in his jaw.


Shortly before 5 p.m. on
March 31, 1998, Mary and I
met with the staff of The
Lake Wales News to
announce that as of the
close of business, Frisbie
Publishing Co. would own
The News.
I told them we wanted the
entire staff (of four) to
remain with us, and asked if
there were any questions.
Wanda, the bookkeeper,
said she had to close out the
bank accounts and petty
cash as of 5 o'clock and
asked what we would do for
operating capital.
I fished $20 out of my wal-
let and told her that was the
petty cash fund. I have since
observed that The Lake
Wales News was capitalized
with $20.
I asked if there were any
questions, and Laurie, our
one-person ' news staff,
replied:
"When you told us we
could all keep our jobs, you
told us everything we want-
ed to know."
But she did ask who was,
going to be in charge. I told
her I guessed I would.
Pointing to the desk that
had been Owen Brice's, she
asked, "Who's going to sit at
that desk."
"If it'll make you feel bet-
ter, I'll sit at it when I come
over to sign the payroll every
Friday."
I expected them to oper-
ate as a committee-of-the-
whole on a day-to-day basis,
and to call me with any
questions they couldn't
resolve among themselves.

For the next nine-plus
years, the staff more than
doubled and the size of the


paper tripled, and the staff
functioned reasonably well,
most of the time, as a com-
mittee-of-the-whole, with
Mary spending a couple of
half-days a week in Lake
Wales and me going over at
least once a week.
But it remained a long-
term goal of mine to have an
experienced journalist at the
helm of The News full-time.
That goal did not change
when Mary and I sold Frisbie
Publishing Co. to Sun Coast
Media Group on Jan. 1 of this
year, remaining on under
three -year employment
contracts.
Of the many professional
friendships I have made
with Sun Coast, none has
been stronger than with Jim
Gouvellis, vice president, for
news of Sun Coast. He's good
at his job, and he thinks I'm
good at mine.
We have formed a mutual
admiration society.

A few months ago, I was
driving from Bartow to Lake
Wales and turned on my cell
phone. I had a message in
voicemail.
This is never a good
omen. Cell phones are a lot
like TiVo: a great idea, if I can
find someone near me to
operate them.
I fumbled with the but-
tons, and to my relief, did
not lose the message.
A familiar voice told me
he was thinking about mov-
ing Jim Gouvellis to Lake
Wales as publisher. I pulled
to the side of the road and
played it again.
When I got back to
Bartow, I told my friend
Mary, "Listen to this, and see
if it's who I think it is, and if


he's saying what I think he's
saying."
She confirmed my belief
that it was David Dunn-
Rankin, my boss - who
became publisher of our
four Polk County papers
when Mary and I sold the
company - and that he was
indeed proposing to move
Jim to Lake Wales.

Jim and I talked about it
in the weeks ahead, and I
assured him, as I did David
and Derek Dunn-Rankin,
that it was a great move. I
also told all three of them
that as the Polk County
operation grows, they would
need a Polk County execu-
tive to oversee the entire
operation.
I recommended Jim for
the job.
Last Wednesday after-
noon Jim called to tell me
that the next day, Sun Coast
would announce that he was
being named vice president
for Polk County operations
and publisher of The Lake
Wales News.
And incidentally, I would
assume my previous title
and duties as publisher of
The Polk County Democrat,
The Fort Meade Leader, and
Polk County Times.

When Jim arrived Friday
morning for the announce-
ment, I met him at the door
with "Good morning, Boss."
He started to protest.
"Jim," I told him, "not
many people are as lucky as I
am. I have gotten to choose
my past two bosses. First
David, now you."
Life is good.

'It Is Affecting Everyone'


Thank you for running
the page in the paper about
what the hospital is doing.
I am shocked by what
BRMC and HMA are doing! I
had a baby at Bartow
Hospital and had a great
experience.
Dr. Nobo and the
women's wing staff went
above and beyond what I
was expecting. I have no
complaints about the
women's wing and can't
understand why they would


do this to the community.
It is affecting everyone.
They need to take a look
at other departments before
they shut down the women's
wing. Have they not thought
of all the people who love
this town and are proud to
be born in Bartow?
We are a growing family
town that I love and hate to
see my fellow neighbors los-
ing there jobs and dreams.

Ann Lee Kelley Was One


Of BMH's First Babies


Chances are, the smell of
fresh paint was still lingering
in the air when Ann Lee was
born at Bartow Memorial
Hospital.
The date was Oct. 19,
1928; it was the year the hos-
pital opened.
Her mother told her she
wasn't the first baby born at
what was then the city-
owned hospital, but she was
one of the earliest.
Her sister was born one
year earlier at the county
hospital in Bartow.
Her good friend Barbara
Hunter (now Orr) was born
at BMH a month later.
Ann, daughter of


Katherine Graddy Lee and
Charlie Lee, was delivered by
Dr. R.L. Hughes. Family doc-
tors did virtually all the
deliveries in that era.
Her mother had lived in
Bartow since the age of 6.
She and Charlie ("He always
said his name was Charlie,
not Charles") were married
in 1926, a year or two after
Charlie moved to Bartow.
The birthing tradition has
continued to the third gen-
eration in the family of Ann
Lee (now Kelly) and Bob
Kelly, a retired phosphater
and a former member of
both the hospital board and


the hospital foundation
board.
Their younger son, Mike
Kelly, was born at BMH in
1960; Dr. John Miller deliv-
ered him.
And in 1989, Mike and
Margie Kelly's first child,
Chelsea, was born at BMH.'
Dr. Ralph Nobo delivered
Chelsea
Ann's opinion of the hos-
pital's plan to close obstet-
rics services on July 28?
"I think it's dreadful.
"Bartow is growing and
thriving; to think that
nobody else will be born in
Bartow..."


Tell Us the Real Reason


I am life-long resident of
Bartow. My grandparents
moved here in 1926. I was
helped into this earth by the
capable, caring hands of Dr.
Tom Caswall in Bartow
Memorial Hospital, as was
my brother six years prior. I
have been a patient of Dr.
Nobo's for 23 years and he
has been my doctor through
four pregnancies and deliv-
eries. I also had the privilege
to be Dr. Nobo's nurse after
the birth of my last child.
During this time he and
Dr. Encinas were doing the
rotating call by themselves.
There were many times
when he had been up all
night and came straight into
the office to see patients. He
did this without complaint.
Dr. Nobo is very passion-
ate about the things be
believes in and the care of
his patients. He would never
do anything to put them in
jeopardy. We have very capa-
ble pediatricians in Bartow
who are there to see the
babies after birth and have
made the necessary trans-
fers of the patients who need
NICU care.
This has not been a prob-
lem in the past and is not a
reason to close our OB.
So, what is the real rea-
son? Could it be that Bartow
gets a lot of uninsured
patients?
After reading the full page
letter from Bartow Regional
Medical Center CEO Justin


Olivia Foreman,
born March 12, 2004


Davis, I was compelled to do
a little research of my own. I
called the offices. that were
listed at the bottom of the
page and here are the
results:
Clark and Daughtry
Medical Group - Does not
accept Medicaid.
Gessler Clinic Women's
Division - Does not accept
Medicaid.
Lakeland OB/GYN -
Does not accept Medicaid
but the place next door does.
The Midwives Bond
Clinic - Does not accept
Medicaid.
Heart of Florida OB/GYN
Associates - accepts
Medicaid. My question was:
Would I be delivered by an
MD? The answers was:
Whoever is on call.
How does Mr. Davis think
this is an acceptable com-
promise for the patients who
depend on Medicaid? There
are many reasons why a per-
son resorts to Medicaid for
coverage. They are not sub-
standard and should not be
treated that way.
As per his nurse at pre-
sent, about 60 percent of his
patients are on Medicaid.
I am sure Dr. Encinas has
comparable numbers.
Where does this leave
them?
Are you discriminating
against them?
I am sure the midwives
are very capable if that is the
route you chose at the


Trace Foreman,
born Oct. 21, 1998


beginning of your pregnan-
cy; however, it should not
be the only way after this
abrupt closing.
Where are all the notices
in the paper? You can warn
everyone about the No
Smoking on Hospital
Grounds policy six months
in advance but nothing
about the cessation of deliv-
eries.
Some of Dr. Nobo's
patients live as far away as
Wauchula, Bradley, Lake
Wales, Polk City, Mulberry,
etc. They depend on, Dr.
Nobo and our local regional
hospital for these services.
Not only would they have to
travel to another hospital for
delivery; what about the
many appointments and
ultrasounds and labs they
would have to travel to
another city for?
What is the real reason?
Show us the figures and
maybe we could understand
this decision. My daughter,
born 16 years ago, was the
150th delivery of Dr. Nobo's
in 1990. Obviously the num-
bers have 'not changed, only
the big city administration.
We have a lot of pride in
our small town history. Don't
tear down what we have
worked so hard to build. As
my daddy would say, "It just
don't make good sense."

Used BMH for 80 Years


My family has been
using Bartow Memorial
Hospital for 80 years.
My son was born at the
Bartow city hospital in
1940. Dr. Carefoot from

I am unhappy about the
closure of the obstetrics

is hard for me to imagine
that any hospital would dis-

especially ours. This creates
undeserved problems for
our doctors and the commu-

I was born in Bartow on
July 9, 1933, not at the hospi-

Offer of Help Not Endorsement


One of the medical
groups that has agreed to
handle obstetrics cases
rejected by Bartow Regional
Medical Center said that it
does not endorse BRMC's
decision to close its OB unit
on Saturday, July 28.
Dr. Peter M. Alvarez, pres-
ident of Lakeland OB-GYN,
stated his firm's position in a
letter responding to an
advertisement placed by
BRMC, listing it as one of
five clinics and medical
groups that are willing to
accept displaced patients.
"It may appear that our
practice endorses this mea-
sure," Dr. Alvarez said. "We


do not support thie closing of
the obstetrical department
at . Bartow Memorial
Hospital.
"They simply asked our
practice if we would be will-
ing to accept transfer
patients from Dr. Nobo and
Dr. Encinas, and.we said yes.
"We will continue to offer
our help to Dr. Nobo and Dr.
Encinas, and we are in con-
stant communication with
Dr. Nobo to facilitate a
smooth transition."
The practices listed in
BRMC's advertisement as
being willing to accept dis-
placed patients are:
* Clark and Daughtry


Medical Group, OB
Department, 284-5941.
* Lakeland OB/GYN, 688-
1528.
* Gessler Clinic Women's
Division, 298-3204.

* Heart of Florida

No disposable containers
are permitted on the river,
so all drinks and foods must
be placed in a thermos or
plastic container. The river
is both beautiful and amaz-

ing disposable containers, I
am sure, helps keep the area
pristine.
I also would advise water

Our walk from the car

The water is 72 degrees,

from little rocks that dot the
bottom.
Getting on the float is
also a bit tricky for first-
timers, and, sometimes old-
timers, no matter how many
times you try. The only
advice I have is to keep
jumping. You'll get it even-
tually.
The river is not very wide,
and privately-owned homes
run along both sides. Most
homes have docks and lad-
ders, but tubers are not per-
mitted to trespass on pri-
vate property. Homeowners,
however, mostly seem
ambivalent about the
tubers, sometimes waving,
but most often paying no
mind to the parade of traffic
down their backyard.
Keep in mind the fact you
will not be able to leave the
river. Four hours without
any stopping is a long time.
Bring everything you may
need before setting foot in
the water.
The current moves slowly
most of the time, and with
chirping birds and the warm
sun, floating on the tube is
one of the most relaxing
ways to spend the day.
Just floating would have
made the day perfect, but
within minutes of being on
the river, we saw otters play-
ing.
I had never, ever seen an
otter in the wild, and just
seeing the playful, adorable
creatures swimming and
flipping onto their backs
made my day.

Ms. Peebles said the river
also boasts a variety of fish,
turtles, birds and the occa-

We saw fish, turtles and

seeing an alligator. In all the

ing the park available, Ms.
Peebles said alligators have
never attacked tourists and
floaters.
Alligators may prefer a
warmer environment.
Other tubers are friendly,
waving and offering hellos,
but as the current forces you
slowly down river, you may
find yourself having joined a
new group. This is why
string is important.
For those wanting to stay
together, the string will help
keep your group together.
After all, constant paddling
back to your companions
does not make for a very
relaxing day.
Napping, chatting, and
thinking only of delightful
things are encouraged.
After all, it's four hours to
think only of yourself,
nature, the pull of the cur-
rent and the warmth of the
Florida sun.
Eventually, the ride does
come to an end, and after a
short wait, the shuttle
appeared and whisked us
back to the park.
And while zipping to
work on the Citrus
Connection bus for my first,
adventure was fun, this was
a much better way to ride.












Democrat Wins Three


Awards in Contest


The Democrat won three
awards for journalistic
excellence in the 2006
Florida Press Assn. Better
Weekly Newspapers con-
test:
* First place for newspa-
per promotion.
* Second place for best
news story.
* Third place for commu-
nity service.
The first place award was
for the 32-page special sec-
tion published on Aug. 28,
2006, to mark the 75th
anniversary of the founding
of the newspaper. The first
issue was published on Aug.
28, 1931. The paper
remained in the ownership
of four generations of the
same family for those 75
years.
"Nice special section that
lets you highlight yourself. I
also like the historic pages.
Good story ideas," the judge


wrote.
The entire staff collabo-
rated on the section.
The best news story
award was for Jennifer
Starling's account of the
first Internet predator sting
conducted by the Polk
County Sheriff's Office.
Appearing under the head-
line, "Gotcha!" the story
related the arrival of men at
a rural Polk County house
for what they thought was a
sexual rendezvous with a
young girl.
"Good overview of
arrests; fair treatment to
(those) arrested," the judge
wrote. "Good description of
events."
The community service
award was for The
Democrat's news coverage
and editorial comment on
the growing number of sub-
divisions which the city was
approving that will be


served by septic tanks
because sewer service is not
available. The stories and'
editorials were written by
S. L. Frisbie, IV.
"Excellent job of report-
ing on an issue of concern to
residents," the judges wrote.
"The attention you gave to
the issue helped prompt
change. Good editorials.
Kudos to you!"
The Florida weekly
newspapers contest - one
of the largest in the nation
- drew 1,856 entries from
84 weekly, twice-weekly,
and tri-weekly newspapers
throughout the state.
Newspapers were judged in
three divisions, competing
against newspapers of simi-
lar circulation.
The awards were pre-
sented at the association's
annual convention in Ponte
Vedra.


DEP Recomends Use Of

Compact Fluorescent Lamps


Encouraged by the grow-
ing popularity of compact
fluorescent lamps, or CFLs,
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) is urging residents to
continue replacing incan-
descent lights with this ener-
gy-efficient technology that
now comes in a variety of
sizes and lighting qualities.
CFLs should be recycled
with other household haz-
ardous waste items.
"While energy-efficient
lighting is beneficial for your
home, it is important to
know how to recycle the
bulbs to ensure protection of
the environment," said DEP
Secretary Michael W. Sole.
"Both the Department and
the federal Environmental
Protection Agency are work-
ing with groups nationwide
to identify ways to make
recycling of compact fluo-
rescent light bulbs much
easier for consumers in the
future."
CFLs are small fluores-
cent light bulbs that can be
screwed into a regular light
socket, use about 75 percent
less energy than standard
incandescent bulbs and last
up to 10 times longer.

Lakeland's eLibrary Opens


Lakeland's "express public
library" is now open at 4740
South Florida Avenue in the
Lake Miriam Plaza (between
Gosh and Lighthouse
Christian store).
The library may not be
as large as a main library, but
it does offer many of the
more popular services that
the public enjoys including a
bestseller collection, maga-
zines, newspapers, DVD's
and music CD's.
The facility also has 15
public access computer sta-
tions and wireless internet
service.
"This is a new concept for
us," said Lisa Lilyquist, city


of Lakeland librarian. "We
are excited about being able
to meet the immediate
needs of the growing popu-
lation in south Lakeland."
This new public library
service is a joint effort
between the City of
Lakeland, Polk County
Board of County
Commissioners and the Polk
County Library Cooperative.
Hours are Monday
through Thursday, 9 a.m. to
7 p.m.; and Friday through
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Any book that is available
in the county can be deliv-
ered to the library. Visitors
can also return materials to


the library that were
checked out at other public
libraries.
Library cards are free to
Polk County residents.

From the Fort Meade

Historical Museum
I l l I


By LETA WRIGHT
Community Correspondent

As I was reading the Fort
Meade Leader dated
September 1955, Professor
R.D. Mitchell was giving a
grand welcome to five new
teachers who were joining
the local school staff for the
year.
See if you remember
these teachers when he was
the principal: Perry Johnson,
vocational agriculture; John
Sims, science/mathematics;
Mrs. Earl Walker, fourth
grade;
Eunice Power, eighth and
10th grades; Marguerite
Barnett, fourth, eighth, and
tenth grade English.
Soon Tom Ereditario,
principal of Fort Meade
Middle/Senior High School,
will be interviewing teachers
for this coming year.
Several months ago, one
of our readers brought a
written piece to me at the
Museum about teachers'
rules in 1872. Then, about a
month ago, I was in St.
Augustine in the old school
house, and saw this same
writing about teachers in
1872. I thought you might
get a kick out of these rules
written back in that time.
1. Teachers each day will
fill lamps, clean chimneys.
2. Each teacher will bring
a bucket of water and a scut-
tle of coal for the day's ses-
sion.
3. Make your plans care-
fully. You may whittle nibs to
the individual taste of the
pupil's.
4. Men teachers may take
one evening each week for


courting purposes, or two
evenings a week if they go to
church regularly.
5. After 10 hours in
school, teachers may spend
the remaining time reading
the Bible or other good
books.
6. Women teachers who
marry or engage in unseem-
ly conduct will be dismissed.
7. Every teacher should
lay aside from each pay a
goodly sum of his earnings
for- his benefit during his
declining years so that he
will not become a burden on
society.
8. Any teacher who
smokes, uses liquor in any
form, frequents pool or pub-
lic halls, or gets shaved in a
barber shop will give good
reason to suspect his worth,
intention, integrity, and
honesty.
9. The teacher who per-
forms his labor faithfully
and without fault for five
yeas will be given an
increase of 25 cents per week
in his pay providing the
Board of Education
approves.
Now, how do you like
those rules of 1872?
The W.H. Lewis-Canter
Building down town is tak-
ing on a new look and new
business, which we are so
happy to have. When this
building was first built, it
only had The First State
Bank on the southwest cor-'
ner and the Post Office on
the east end of the brick
building.
As time went on, the inset
building was the office of Dr.
SA. Lindsey, then, next door
on the west side was Dr.


David Hugh Varn. Next, was
Varn's Pharmacy owned by
D.H. Varn. Then came the
Lett Feed Store.
I can't remember the next
store, but later, it became
Mr. Stringfellow's Barber
Shop. Then, Mann's Grocery,
and later after the First State
Bank became D.L. Palmer's
Store, came Frank Heath..
Today, we have Andre's
Fine Jewelry, which is going
to move to South Charleston
Avenue. And next to them is
R&B Pawn Shop, MC's
Gunsmithing, and the new
antique gift store,
Chinoiserie, that has not
opened. It's hard to believe
that it's Alton Bourn's Feed
Store after Lett's.
It is beautiful, and we've
needed a gift store for so
long.
Do you remember Etoile
Altman's nice gift shop
which was located in
Mitchell Chevrolet Building?
And also, NellWatson's Dress
Shop?
Over the years things have
changed. And now, Larry
Hodge occupies that build-
ing with Hodgetel, which is
the communication for the
Super Bowl every year that is
world known.
And the Fort Meade
Leader occupies the once-
upon-a-time bar and pool-
room.
Let's hope the empty
stores downtown- will fill
with prosperous businesses
soon.
The Historical Museum,
hopefully, will open in
September.


National Minorit Donor

Day Celebrates Life


National Minority Donor
Day (NMDD), observed
annually on Aug. 1, pro-
motes the need for minori-
ties to designate their deci-
sion to become organ and
tissue donors across the
United States.
Minorities make up 20
percent of the U.S. popula-
tion; however they account
for over half of those on the
national transplant waiting
list. Minorities are dispro-
portionately affected by ill-
nesses including hyperten-
sion, diabetes, and kidney
disease; which can lead to
organ failure and the need
for a life-saving organ trans-
plant.
LifeLink of Florida, the
non-profit organ and tissue
recovery organization facili-
tates the recovery of organs
and tissue for transplanta-
tion therapy.
"National Minority Donor
Day encourages the minori-
ty community to understand
the importance of organ and
tissue donation and to dis-
cuss the decision to donate
with family members," said
Liz Lehr, executive director


for LifeLink of Florida "The
multicultural community
accounts for over half of
those awaiting organ trans-
plants statewide, an increase
in organ donation among
multicultural populations
can provide earlier and more
successful transplants for
patients."
There are nearly 100,000
Americans waiting for organ
transplants. More than 3,300
people listed for life-saving
organ transplants reside in
Florida; more than 51 per-
cent of those waiting are
minorities; and almost 40
percent of those listed for
kidney transplants in Florida
are African American.
Mike Dexter is thankful
for the individual whose kid-
ney functions within him.
"When Dexter became a
kidney transplant candidate,
our family faced a very diffi-
cult period," said Janice
Dexter, Mike's wife. "But
another family who also was
going through a difficult
time made a decision for
organ donation and saved
Mike's life. We are so thank-
ful."


Dexter celebrated his 10th
transplant anniversary this
past April and is commemo-
rating this milestone by
embarking on a second
career in academia.
After retiring from 13
years of service as a detec-
tive for the St. Petersburg
Police Department, he is
now teaching criminal jus-
tice at the high school level,
while simultaneously pursu-
ing a masters degree in crim-
inal justice.
To become an organ and
tissue donor sign up on the
state organ donor registry or
contact LifeLink for a family
notification card at 1-800-
262-5775 or www.lifelink-
found.org.

Presidential libraries
When a president's term is up, he needs a
place to store his important documents, pho- J
tos and other reminders of his life and time
in office.
Today, there are presidential libraries
administered by the National Archives hon-
oring our last 12 presidents.
- People go there to do research about these
presidents and to find out more about their
lives. The Mini Page thought our readers
would be interested in these presidents' edu-
cation.
1. Herbert Hoover, Iowa
2. Franklin Roosevelt, New York
3. Harry Truman, Missouri
4. Dwight Eisenhower, Kansas
5. John F. Kennedy, Massachusetts
6. Lyndon Johnson, Texas

7. Richard Nixon, California
8. Gerald Ford, Michigan
9. Jimmy Carter, Georgia
10. Ronald Reagan, California
11. George H.W. Bush, Texas
12. Bill Clinton, Arkansas


Saving school m rnfiories
Did you ever stop t4tiink that a person
who might somedlayibe president of the
United States-ould be in your classroom
this year?-'
Or fiaybe you are a future president your-
self.
You might want to save some of your
school stuff, just in case:
* report cards
* art creations
* school photos
* papers with good
grades.
People will want to
know you better. They
probably will really want to know about your
school years.
Even if you don't become president, you
will want to save souvenirs of your school
years to show your kids someday.
This photo was taken
of this president-to-be


when he was at Yale
University. He is hold-
ing his young son, who
later also became
president.


Can you look at the numbered photos at
the right and tell who this president
might be? tisn -AH e :jeMsu

From the Schoolhouse


'" To the White House


These are photos of nine presidents
while they were students. Can you
identify who they are by using their
adult photos as a clue?
He was raised

school he espe-
cially liked
spelling and
Smath. He went
on to West
Point and
became a U.S.
SArmy general.


He is the only president who
reached the rank of Eagle in
the Boy Scouts. He was very
good at football. This sport
helped him get a scholarship
to college and law school.


This photo was
taken when he
graduated from
Harvard.
He always went
to private
schools.
His keen interest
in social activi-
ties, football,
swimming and
golf took so
much of his time
that his grades
were not as
good as they
might have
been.


He made the swimming and
football teams in college. He
had the lead in most of the
school plays. He was a
straight "C" student who
was interested in sports, act-
ing and politics.


This president-to-be
never went to col-
lege. He grew up on
a farm. He took
piano lessons and
loved classical
music. He was a
great reader.


CThis photo was
taken on his 12th
birthday.
Later he played
the saxophone at
* Ihis first inaugu-
ration ceremony.
He worked for a
senator part-time
when he was in
college.
G r He was only 5
" when he start-
ed taking piano
lessons. He
loved music all
| Iof his life, and
. . also played the
clarinet, saxo-
1phone and
accordion.

He grew up on
a peanut farm.
When he was
only 7 years old
he wrote the

Can you identify
this student by
using the grown-
up photo on
Page 1?


This young boy's mother read to him. She paid close attention to
his education. He was educated by tutors at home. He had a
library of about 17,000 books as an adult.
He often took trips abroad while he was growing up. This photo
was taken on a trip to Germany when he was 14.


He went away to a private school when he was 14 years old. It's
hard to pick him out because the photo is so small. Who was he?

Where are other presidential papers
kept?
Before the presidential libraries were set up, the papers
and important documents of our earlier presidents were
distributed to many different sources. Some of these papers
were even destroyed.
However, the largest collection of presidential papers
from most of the earlier presidents is in the Library of
Congress in Washington, D.C.
The Library of
Congress is the
-.-. -largest library in
. , ,.. .the world. It has
millions of books,
b' -photographs,
recordings and
* other important
_- papers.


* After a fire destroyed the library's first collection,
Thomas Jefferson, our third president, sold his personal
library of 6,487 books to the Library of Congress for about
$24,000.
* Included in the library's collec-
tion of George Washington's papers is
a listing of 110 maxims or rules of
conduct, called "Rules of Chivalry .
and Decent Behavior in Company
and Conversation." At the age of 11,
Washington probably copied the list
from one that had been written earli-
er. One example: "Sleep not when
others speak."

LPGA Acquires Duramed Futures Tour

BHS Softball Coach Rutenbar Inducted

Into Polk County Sports Hall of Fame


By NEAL DUNCAN
Sports Correspondent

Glenn Rutenbar has been
a pioneer in establishing
fast pitch softball in Polk
County and throughout the
state of Florida.
After taking over the pro-
gram at Bartow High School
in 1987, he has a career
record of 562-101-1(.848).
As the only softball coach
in the school's history,
Rutenbar is accustomed to
giving plenty of victory
speeches. He has led seven
Yellow Jacket teams to state
championships, and four
more to state runners-up.
Prior to this past season,
Bartow,had won a state-
record of five straight state
championships, appearing
in the state championship
game every year since 1997.
Born in Flint, Mich.,
Rutenbar moved to Polk
County in 1985 with his wife
Cheryl, who is an assistant
principal for Socrum
Elementary School in
Lakeland. After teaching
three years at Fort Meade
High School and coaching
the baseball team for two
years, Rutenbar took over
the Bartow softball pro-
gram.
In his first season, he led
the team to a 20-0 record in
fast pitch, but then had to
play slow pitch in a Polk
County 'tournament against
nine other teams that had
experience hitting the arc-


ing ball instead of one shot
out of a rocket launcher.
Rutenbar has insisted that
not starting out in slow
pitch helped Bartow get a
jump on building a program
that would eventually domi-
nate the sport.
In 1988, schools had the
option of playing fast pitch
or slow pitch in the playoffs.
By 1993, schools were
required to play fast pitch.
While Rutenbar had a lot
of success his first 10 years,
winning the district title
seven times, a state champi-
onship still eluded the
Yellow Jackets. The team
went to its first state tourna-
ment in 1990 after a 22-11
season, and then went again
in 1991, losing again in the
state semifinals.
Satisfaction finally came
in 1997, when Bartow fin-
ished 30-6 and beat Lake
Region for the Class 4A title.
From there the floodgates
were open for a dynasty that
would go on to win six more
state championships over
the next nine years, an
unprecedented run for any
team in Florida High School
softball.
Rutenbar was one of five
to be inducted to the Polk
County All Sports Hall of
Fame on June 26. The event
took place at the Lakeland
Center with more than 500
attendees that included past
BHS players.
During Rutenbar's induc-
tion speech, he gave credit


to his family, all of his for-
mer players and their fami-
lies, his coaching staff, BHS
administration and many
others. In typical fashion,
Rutenbar was humble of his
accomplishments and said
he was embarrassed by the
honor. He didn't think he
should be singled out when
so many individuals have
worked very hard to make
Bartow softball what it is.
Even with Rutenbar's
humble ways, his record
speaks for itself and as long
as he is steering the ship,
more domination of girl's
softball seems to be certain.


Ladies Professional Golf
Association has acquired
the Duramed Futures Tour,
LPGA Commissioner
Carolyn . E Bivens and
Duramed Futures Tour
President Zarya Calderon
announced.
The Duramed Futures
Tour has been the official

announcement was made at
the LPGA's HSBC Women's
World Match Play
Championship at Wykagyl
Country Club in New

in a licensee role with the
LPGA.
In recent years the orga-
nizations have worked
closely to align business
practices to assist the mem-
bers of both tours with pro-
fessional development, and
to prepare members of the
Duramed Futures Tour for
the transition to the LPGA.
One of the biggest exam-
ples of the synergy between
the two organizations over
the years has been the
awarding of coveted LPGA
Tour cards for the top
money leaders on the
Duramed Futures Tour. In
2003, the LPGA increased
the cards from three to five.
The acquisition will put
women's professional golf in
the United States under one
umbrella. Together, the


tours will bring the female
professional golfers to more
markets, resulting in
increased exposure for the
players, sponsors and tours.
Currently the LPGA has
35 tournaments worldwide
and the Duramed Futures
Tour has 19 tournaments in
14 states.
Financial terms of the
acquisition were not dis-
closed. Notable terms call
for Calderon to remain as
president and CEO of the
Duramed Futures Tour and
become a member of the
LPGA's senior management
team. In addition, the
Duramed Futures Tour staff
will relocate from Lakeland
to the LPGA headquarters in
Daytona Beach by the end
of the year.
