Summer Adventures


A Night Of Fun At Old Town


By DAWN WADE
Staff Writer

Where can you see classic cars,
listen to a band, shop, eat, ride a
Ferris wheel, get tattooed, and get
scared in a haunted house?
All with free parking and free
admission?
Old Town, of course!
Located on I Drive near Disney,
Old Town is just another way for
tourists to part with some money
and for locals to have a relatively
cheap night out.
Pulling up, it is difficult to miss
the bright lights of the ride area,
especially the tall tower of the
human lingshot.
I was out of the car within min-
utes, starving for Old Town treats,
and on the hunt for my favorite
classic car - the Chevy Chevelle.
I recently heard about and saw
this car for the first time, and I
must say, it was love at first sight. I
am sad they don't make cars like
this any more, but then again, cars
go a lot farther now on a gallon of
gas.
Old Town has quite a few
restaurants to choose from, not to
mention a few snack shops, but for


me, it was time for yummy fish
and chips.
I love the British. I adore the
accent, the enhanced vocabulary,
and their love of vinegar on French
fries.
The first time I had this treat, I
was but a wee girl at the fair, and
my father doused his fresh-cut
salty fries in vinegar, and then
offered me one. I think he thought
I wouldn't like the taste, but soon
he was ordering more. Since then,
every year I have to have fries with
vinegar at any fair.
It's an acquired taste from what
I hear. While popular on board-
walks in Northern states, it seems
to be unheard of by Southerners,
at least among my friends.
If you haven't tried it, make
some fries and malt vinegar soon.
The Old Town Chippery offers
two types of fish - haddock and
cod, chips, sausages, steak and
kidney pie and the very British
cheese fries.
The man working the counter
was British, to the point my com-
panion had some trouble under-
standing him, but I found him
adorably authentic. Within min-
utes we had large pieces of fried


cod and delicious fresh fries ($8.95
per meal).
After dinner, we down the open
street to window shop. Our first
stop was the Old Town Pet Palace.
Being the owner of a new
puppy, I delighted in the selection
of adorable pet leashes, collars,
signs and clothing.
My puppy will be all dressed up
for Halloween. I foresee an
adorable fireman costume in his
future.
From the pet store, we were off
to my favorite spot in Old Town -
Black Market Minerals.
This is a fun store filled with
rocks, gems, wood carvings and
geodes.
I love geodes. It's so amazing
that such pretty crystals exist
inside such ugly rocks. I love
things that are much better than
they seem.
Everyone seems to love Black
Market Minerals. By far, it was the
most packed store we visited.
Children foraged in the rock
bins for treasures, -and played with
rainsticks, while adults admired

3 Arrested in Home Invasion


Three men have been
arrested for a home invasion
robbery that occurred this
weekend in Bartow.
Jamal Luckett, 18, of 1130
East Wabash Street, and
Marcus Spurlock, 16, and
Rodrick Spurlock, 18, both of
S 455 Seventh Avenue, are
charged with robbing two
men at a residence on East
Summerlin Street around
1:45 Sunday morning,
Bartow Police Detective
Michael Prevatt said.
Victims in the robbery
told police that two of the
suspects were armed with an


unknown type of handguns,
one described as a "machine
gun," Prevatt said. One of the
victims had a firearm put to
his head as the suspects
demanded money.
After the robbery, the sus-
pects fled the area on bicy-
cles. One of the bicycles was
spotted by Bartow Cpl.
Bryan Dorman at a home on
East Wabash Street, approxi-
mately four blocks from the
Summerlin Street residence,
shortly after the' robbery,
Prevatt said.
Stolen items belonging to
the victims were scattered in

front of and on the porch of
the home, he said.
Upon initial questioning,
the three men denied any
involvement in the robbery.
Detectives obtained a war-
rant to search the home,
where they found more
property belonging to the
victims and clothing
described by the victims as
being worn by the suspects.
A gun matching the victims'
description also was recov-
ered from the home.
The firearm turned out to
be a paintball gun altered to
resemble a machine gun,
Prevatt said.
After their arrests, the sus-
pects recanted their original
statements and admitted
their involvement in the rob-
bery, he said.
Anyone who has informa-
tion regarding this investiga-
tion may contact Crime
Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS,
or Prevatt at 534-5040.

Cousins Mount Attempt


To Save Old Cigar Factory


The county is planning on
taking bids in two weeks to
demolish the old cigar facto-
ry on Third Avenue, but two


cousins hope to make them
reconsider.
William Melvin and Ken
Atkins were going through
old family records when they
discovered one of their
ancestors was a supervisor
at the factory. Alerted to the
existence and historical sig-
nificance of the factory, they
set out to save it.
During the city commis-
sion meeting last Monday,
Melvin and Atkins asked the
city to help them prevent the
factory's destruction. While
the ultimate decision rests in
the hands of the county gov-
ernment, they hoped back-
ing from the city would help
champion their cause.
They said that they were
only looking .for the city's
blessing and voice, not its
dollars.
Melvin and Atkins said


that the cigar factory was the
only historical industrial site
left in Bartow.
They had previously met
with Clifton Lewis, whose
experience with the L.B.
Brown House helped them
figure out how to save the
building.
The building would be a
self-sustaining venture
under their several plans,
they said, which included
turning it into a visitors'
bureau, providing confer-
ence and ;office space for
non-profit organizations,
and having demonstrations.
of the old factory for stu-
dents.
The city commission said
that they supported their
efforts, and advised them to
speak with CRA Director Jim
Duane to get further help in
putting their plans together.


Labor Day Garbage


Work on a water main at Wilson Avenue and Main Street
is just part of the completion of the Main Street redesign
project. Gibbs and Register of Lakeland won the contract
bid over David Nelson Construction Co., which had done
the previous work. The job has been expanded to include
not only the milling and resurfacing of Main Street between
Floral and Oak Avenues, but also the resurfacing of four side


streets - Wilson, Hendry, Florida, and Jackson Avenues -
for one block north and south of Main Street. Also included
is installation of an eight-inch water line between
Carpenter and Wilson Avenues, serving the heart of down-
town Bartow. The larger line will provide a greater volume of
water in the event of a fire, and will improve water quality.

Schools and Students Honored

For Learning Through Service


Several Polk teachers and
student representatives were
honored by the school board
for the successful comple-
tion of a service learning
project in their communities
during the 2006-2007 school
year.
The schools shared more
than $44,000 in Florida
Learn and Serve grant
money to coordinate pro-
jects that helped students
develop skills to become
lifelong learners and
involved citizens.
Service learning com-
bines a curriculum and
instruction aspect to a com-
munity service project that
addresses a local need, helps
to resolve a social issue or
makes a contribution to a
community.
These experiential learn-
ing projects focus on one of
five issues: literacy,
civics/history, environment,
intergenerational issues and
drug/violence prevention.
Components of the stu-
dent projects included


research, project design and
implementation, demon-
stration of learning and eval-
uation of the project's
impact.

the larger (and more expen-
sive) carvings and art.
A trip rip to Old Town is not
complete without viewing
the artisans at Kandlestix
work. From vats of colored
wax, the candlemakers can
create glowing bulbs with
names, pictures or pretty
much anything you wish.
After Kandlestix, which
my (male) companion pro-
nounced "boring," we were
off to visit the cars.
Every Saturday night, Old
Town offers music and the
"Classic Car Cruise," where a
variety of classic cars take to
the streets and vroom
through Old Town.
At 8:30, the streets are
cleared and Commander
Cody's "Hot Rod Lincoln"
signals the beginning of the
cruise.
Owners file through the
streets in cars that look
showroom shiny, regardless
of their advanced age. From
Corvettes to AMCs, the cars
make a lot of noise, but offer
fantastic entertainment.
I, sadly, was only able to
count three Chevelles on the
night I visited. One, however ,
was for sale. I wonder if they
would let me make payment
installments, or perhaps
trade in my Toyota.
After the cruise, we wan-
dered off to the bright lights
of the midway and ended
our night on the Ferris
wheel, while the bright lights
of Orlando twinkled below.

Anti-Smoking Funds A Good Start; Nex


It was important to restore fund-
ing for anti-smoking programs
aimed at youth.
The next step is to consider an
increase in the cigarette excise tax.
It's been a long time coming, but
Florida is back on track with its ini-
tiative aimed at curbing smoking
among our youth.
A referendum passed by 61 per-
cent of Floridians last November
called for the state to restore funds
originally set aside for smoking pre-
vention programs following the 1997
settlement of a lawsuit with the
tobacco industry.
That settlement'yielded $11.3 bil-
lion and spawned the Florida
Tobacco Control Program.
Florida's initial anti-smoking cam-
paign was widely heralded.
According to the group Tobacco Free


Kids, smoking was reduced by 50
percent among middle school stu-
dents and 35 percent among high
school students in the initial years of
the program, 1998 to 2002.
But in subsequent years, the huge
sum of money proved too attractive
for a state government facing budget
shortfalls. Bit by bit, the fund was
raided until it was down to $1 mil-
lion in the 2006 fiscal year.
It is now restored, thanks to the
referendum, and some $58 million
will be pumped into anti-smoking
programs in the coming year.
It's a good thing. Tobacco Free
Kids reports that earlier trends
toward less smoking among
teenagers have leveled off.
At the beginning of this year, it
was estimated that 15.5 percent of


Florida's


high school students


smoked, with 23,600 people under
age 18 becoming new daily smokers
every year.
That's just below the level of adult
smokers, 21 percent of the popula-
tion.
Tobacco is the only lawful product
in America which, when used as
directed, causes illness and death.
It's a healthy move to use the
money that was originally ear-
marked for smoking prevention pro-
grams for those programs. It's good
to have it back.
But anti-smoking advocates point
out that Florida lags far behind other
states in excise taxes on tobacco; we
rank 46th out of the 50 states.
For more than 15 years, the tax
rate has remained at 33.9 cents per
pack, according to the American
Lung Assn.


ct, Raise Tax

That organization cites studies
that show that youth smoking rates
drop by 7 percent for every 10-per-'
cent increase in the price of ciga-
rettes. Raising the per-pack price by
$1 might prompt many smokers to
quit and would be a serious deter-
rent to new smokers, especially
among Florida's younger popula-
tion.
As a general rule, we believe taxes
should be based on need for govern-
ment revenue, and not as an instru-
ment of social policy.
A higher tax on tobacco products
- with the money used to discour-
age smoking and perhaps for public
health funding - would have ele-
ments of both.
We believe a larger levy is appro-
priate.

( E Travel, Then and Now
' . !, .:O ltoliuwTO uNll /^ >L ^ -cv i, i i i iu i u


For as long as I can
remember, my parents loved
to travel.
In their later years after I
was grown, they visited 47
states and six continents.
After mother's death, Dad
visited the other three states
and the continent of
Antarctica.
Their idea of adventure
was to fly to Europe, rent a
car, and drive into an Iron
Curtain country whose lan-
guage they did not speak.
My idea of adventure is to
leave for a weekend trip
without having confirmed
reservations for both nights.


Cabins. (I'm guessing at
Sadie's; the remainder I
remember well.) Dad
inspected, the room, as he
customarily did before
booking a room, and
declared it to be spic and
span.
Nothing more.
If recollection serves, it
was heated by a pot belly
stove. Mother and Dad slept
in the swayback bed and I
slept on the floor.
It was spic and span.

In our 44 years of mar-
riage, Mary and I also have
enjoyed traveling. We. have
visited probably 15 or so


brought back by the eight-
day trip we just completed
to Savannah, Ga., and
Asheville, N.C. If the spirit of
adventure found in Hazzard
is lacking in our travel these
days, the certainty of accom-
modations which are gener-
ally spic and span and vastly
more comfortable than
Sadie's makes for more plea-
surable travel.
We can scarcely keep up
with the changing alliances
of hotel and motel franchis-
es, some of which, under the
same corporate banner,
range from four-star resorts
to one or two chains at
which I would not board a


ADVENTURES AND MISADVENTURES / By PAT BLAKE SIMS

Neither Hair Nor There


I was watching television
last week when the same ad
appeared again. And again.
And again.
It was for a product that
grows hair. At least, that is
what the men and'women
participating in the ad
claimed.
My hair has always had
the consistency of "biddy
fuzz," the fluff that appears
on a newly-hatched chicken.
There were people in the ad,
both men and women, who
were ecstatically displaying
their newly grown locks.
I had my hair cut the
other day and it looked like a
molting silver dandelion. I,
like silver hair, but I would
prefer a lot more of it.
I decided to give it a try. I
called the 800 number on
the screen and ordered
some. It was very expensive
- it probably came to $10
per hair, but what the heck.
After a week or so, when the
box arrived, I couldn't wait to
see what would happen.
I'll tell you what would


happen. Nothing! The box
arrived this. morning and
when I opened it, the first
thing I saw was a warning.
I didn't even take the plas-
tic off of the contents
because the first thing I saw
was a blue square with big
white letters that said, "NOT
FOR USE BYWOMEN!"
Another blue square said,
"For men."
I first felt insulted and
then angry. The box was
addressed to Patricia B.
Sims. Does that sound like a
man's name? I looked at the
return address and when I
saw that it was in California,
I thought that explained the
matter. People in California
are somewhat, well, differ-
ent.
I called the 800 number in
California and spoke to a
most unpleasant-sounding
woman who told me to take
the box to the post office and
get some kind of shipping
number to return it.
I told her that I am 80
years old and did not plan to


go to the post office.
She hung up on me. I did-
n't care.
I noticed this morning
that the package had a
return address in Tennessee
and had been shipped from
there. I am asking myself
why I should send it back to
California when it was
shipped from Tennessee. I
am also asking myself if this
is some kind of racket to
make a lot of money on
postage.
If these people give me
any trouble refunding my
money, I will lower the boom
on them. I can be really
mean just for fun. I have
worked for the F.B.I. in
Washington during WWII,
the Florida Highway Patrol,
the DeKalb County Police in
Decatur, Ga., and have been
the organist and choir direc-
tor of two choirs at an
Episcopal Church trying to
keep order in the choir loft.
The woman in California
with a mean mouth better
watch out.

From the Fort Meade


Historical Museum


By LETA WRIGHT
Community Correspondent

The volunteers met
together on Tuesday to cele-
brate at the monthly birth-
day luncheon for three of
our volunteers - Verna
Atwell, Berneice Harris, and
Pearl Wogan.
After lunch, a huge birth-
day cake was presented to
them to blow out the candles
and serve the cake.
Those present were:
Jeanette Albritton, .Mavis
Carmichael, Wioma Coulter,
Janet David, Ginger
Durrance, Marie Douglas,
Janet Hancock, Olma
Hendrick, Velma Howell,
Peggy Langston, Helen
Palmer, Betty Speer, Inez
Varn, and Leta Wright.
We have just received 10
Fort Meade High School
annuals from the high
school to be placed in the
museum's school room so
-that our visitors can enjoy
looking at them. These are
,treasure books and we'll
enjoy having them on dis-
play.
I have been appointed by
:Doyle Tillis, who is the chair-
man of the Fort Meade High
School reunion committee,
to present a program on Oct.
6 that will cover a lot of the
past history on Fort Meade.
The two-story brick
school on the eastern half
was built in 1912 and the
western half was built in
1915. How I wish that build-
ing were still there, as it had


so many memories of our
school days.
The reunion celebration
is for the classes 1930-1950
and will take place at the
American Legion. A letter
will be in the mail soon con-
taining the registration. It's
first come, first served as the
building will only hold so.
many. So do send your reser-
vation and check in as soon
as possible.
Can anyone tell me who
the first high school princi-
pal was in Fort Meade in
1912? In fact, I'm trying to
get a list of all the high
school principals.
Thanks to Ed Walker of
The Strawbery Patch and to
Freddie Wright of Bartow for
calling in the date of the
Sand Mountain Ski Show put
on by Dick Pope and the
water ski teams of Cypress
Gardens. The date was Dec.
2,1951.
As we are working with
old pictures, documents,
and artifacts for the muse-
um all the time, I would like
to impress upon the young
people, teenagers especially,
that as they have pictures
developed, they should
write on the back of the pic-
ture who it is, the location,
and the date.
Pictures are history and
they need the information.
We have a number of items
today in the museum that
are hard to identify because
they lack that information.

Pests? Check Before Signing A Contract


Have pests? Don't panic
and sign a buggy deal.
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging con-
sumers to get all the details
before signing over their ter-
mite protection contract.
Recently, some pest con-
trol companies have been
offering "sign over" con-
tracts where they take over
the protection and warranty
contract from another com-
pany.
Bronson wants to ensure
that consumers are aware of
this practice, referred to in
the pest control industry as a
"take-over warranty" or
"pick-up warranty."
A pest control business
will offer to take over a
wood-destroying organism
(WDO) contract or warranty
originally issued by another
company, usually at a lower
price as an incentive for
homeowners to switch. The
contracts most often cover
subterranean termites.
Consumers should be
aware that there is no provi-
sion in state law for a com-
pany to "take over" or "sign
over" an existing contract.
The pest control company
offering to "take over" an
existing warranty is actually
issuing a new contract war-
ranty with new terms and
conditions under their com-
pany name.
The property owner is
usually encouraged to can-
cel their original contract
and continue their termite
protection with the new


company. Switching con-
tracts is not contrary to the
state pest control law or reg-
ulations.
If the property owner
elects to continue the origi-
nal warranty in addition to
the new warranty, the new
pest control company, ,by
law, must obtain written
consent in letter form that it
is the property owner's
desire to have a second con-
tract warranty for the same
wood-destroying organism.
"Protecting your home
against termites is an impor-
tant part of home ownership
in Florida," Bronson said. "A
wood-destroying organism
protection contract with a
licensed pest control com-
pany is the key to that pro-
tection. But homeowners
need to read the fine print
and know exactly what they
are covered for and to ask
questions if a new company
comes in offering to take
over or switch their con-
tract."
The contract specifies
what the company will do to
protect your home and
whether they will treat, re-
treat, or repair any damage if
termites occur. Pest control
companies are legally oblig-
ated to abide by the terms of
the contract.
However, consumers
should be fully aware that
the new contract in a "take
over warranty" is likely to
have different terms and
conditions than the original
contract, and should care-
fully compare the new con-
tract before signing it.


Military Memorabilia

At Interstate Rest Stops


The Ellwood Robinson
'Bob' Pipping, Jr. Memorial
Act, signed into law on May
24, 2005, allows for military
monuments, memorials,
and plaques, as well as
retired military equipment,
to be displayed at interstate
rest areas and welcoming
centers throughout the state
of Florida.
Charter members of Iwo
Jima Monuqment, Inc.,
played an instrumental role
in implementing this
process to recognize and
honor Florida's military vet-
erans and their families.
The Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT)
established guidelines to
oversee the Pipping Act's
requirements.
"We are happy to be part-
ners in this unique project
that recognizes and honors


our military veterans and
their families," stated Stan
Cann, District One secretary.
Iwo Jima Monument is
the first organization to take
advantage of these new
guidelines and plans to erect
the Bob Pipping Monument
at the Polk County, east-
bound-Interstate 4 rest area
at mile marker 46.
The monument is a sym-
bol of the United States
Marine Corps War Memorial
located near Arlington
National Cemetery.
The installation of the
monument will be done by
Iwo Jima Monument, and its
on-going maintenance will
be conducted by the Florida
Chapter of the Navy Seabees
Veterans Association.

In addition, the new con-
tract will most likely not
cover any damage or infesta-
tion that occurred before it
went into effect.
Once the original contract
is ended, the original com-
pany will not be liable for
that damage or re-treatment
either. The result can be that
the consumer has no protec-
tion for existing damage or
infestation when a new con-
tract is entered into.
Consumers should be
thoughtful and cautious
about any change in the ter-
mite protection of their
homes. Consideration
should be given to the fol-
lowing:
* Is the new warranty cov-
erage equal to or greater
than the existing coverage?
* Is any initial treatment
to be rendered by the new
pest control company?
* How do the renewal
terms and costs compare
between warranties?
* Is the new pest company
in good standing as to repu-
tation and consumer satis-
faction?
* Will the contract cover
any hidden infestation or
damage that occurred
before the new contract was
signed?
The department, through
its Bureau of Entomology
and Pest Control, stands
ready to assist consumers by
providing information about
the "take-over warranties."

Fun Finding Out Facts


Research Resources


Do you think you'll be writing a
research paper this semester?
Researching your homework topics
might seem like a lot of work, but it
can be really fun, too.
SThe key is to
know where to
start and how to
keep going. If
you find some-
thing that inter-
ests you, you'll
have a good time
exploring it.
The Mini Page talked with an
expert on research and libraries for
tips on doing your homework.
Ask a librarian
Remember, you don't have to
do everything on your own.
Librarians are trained to help people
research subjects, and they love
doing it.
Start your research by asking a
librarian for help. You could go to your
school librarian or to your public
library.
Your public library probably has a
special children's section. The librari-
an there can help you track down
facts. Many public libraries also have
special research librarians
who help people find
out informa-
tion. � M Vf


Checking out homework help
Libraries have many sources that
you might not have at home. There
might be whole sections full of books
on your topic.
Most libraries subscribe to special
electronic
sources, too.
Librarians
have already
checked out
these
sources. They
know these
sites can probably be trusted to state
the facts and are appropriate for kids.
Anyone can use these sites at the
library. Or, if you have a library card,
you may be able to use these sites
from home.
Ask your librarian what is available
and how you can gain access to those
sources. You may need a password.


SThis student is finding
help at the library.
Libraries have many
special resources to
help you with your
research papers. These
may range from encyclo-
pedias to special
Internet databanks. A
databank is a collection
zof facts about a certain
subject.




Choosing a topic
Ask yourself what you want to
know about a subject. You might need
to narrow the subject down to one
thing. Or you might need to broaden
your idea.
For example, if your teacher asks
you to write
a paper
about the
Wright
Brothers,
you might
narrow the
subject to
their plane,
their bicycle shop or their childhood.
Or, if your teacher asks you to write
about something that happened to you
over the summer, you might want to
broaden the subject and write about
amusement parks, or soccer, or ani-
mals.










Research Tips


Searching the Internet
After you've figured out your
topic, do a search on Google, Yahoo
or another search engine. The more
words you put about the subject into
the search box, the easier it will be
to sort through the sites.
For
example, if
you type
in "flight,"
you will
probably
get millions
of sites. If you type in "Wright
Brothers" you will still get thou-
sands of sites. But if you type in
"Wright Brothers' first flight," or
"Wright Brothers' bicycle shop," you
will have a bettj of finding
what you are 1 WPg eight away.


Search engines for kids
There are many search engines
especially for kids, such as
www.askforkids.com, cyber-
sleuth-kids.com, and
www.aolatsbhool.com. Librarians
have designed a search engine for
kids, www.kidsclick.org.
These search engines have. been
checked out by experts. Parents can
know they are safe for kids to use.
Information found through these
search engines is also more likely to
be accurate.
There are also many databases
especially for kids. Sometimes, the
library pays for these special databases.
They are called subscription databases.
You may have to use them at your
library, or with your library card at
home.
Some examples include Kids
Search (EBSCO) and Searchasaurus
(EBSCO).


______________________________________ i a


Be suspicious
Even on databases that have been
checked out, information may not
always be correct. If you are using a
general search engine such as
Google, you must be even more care-
ful.
First, ask yourself if the source is
trustworthy. Find out who is respon-
sible for the site. Many groups have
a point of view they want people to
believe. For
example, a
site created
by the
Democrats
might not
be fair about Republicans. A
Republican site might not be fair
about Democrats.
Try to find out who wrote the
information. Often this can be found
at the end of the page. Does the
author have good credentials? For
example, perhaps the author is a
medical doctor or a professor.
One way to check out a site is to
see if words are spelled correctly. If
the authors don't even check
spelling, that's a clue that the rest of
the information may be wrong too.

More Research Tips


You may know right away what
you want to explore further. Make a
list of what you want to know.
Or you may not know enough
about the subject even to know what
questions to ask. That's just fine. The
beginning can be fun, too.
If you know
very little about
a topic, start by
going to a non- �
fiction source, A
such as an
encyclopedia or
picture book.
Nonfiction
picture books
are great places to get started. The
author has probably already taken a
lot of time and energy to sum up
that subject. You can get a good
overview in a short time by reading
a picture book.
Be a detective
Always ask questions.
Researchers
such as a sci-
entists, histo- 4
rians or
police detec-
tives are
always look-
ing for clues
to help them
solve a problem or puzzle. They are
always asking, "What does this tell
me?" "What else do I need to know?"
"Where else should I look for infor-
mation?"

The Mini Page thanks Sandra Hughes-
Hassell, associate professor, School of
Library and Information Science, University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, for help
with this story.

Sites to see: kids.yahoo.com
www.kidsclick.org

Next week The Mini Page is about the ways
we are alike.


Checking it twice
Even when the source is trustwor-
thy, information could still be wrong.
Knowledge is changing all the
time. If you are looking at an older
site, the information may already be
outdated.
For example, we know a lot more
about dinosaurs than we did 30
years ago.
An old text-
book might
say that the
iguanodon had
a spike on its
snout. That's
because when it was
first discovered, only one spike was
found. Scientists figured it went
somewhere on its head.
But later discoveries showed that
the spikes were on the iguanodon's
thumbs instead.
Most Web sites will tell you when
they were last updated. This can
probably be found at the very end of
the page.
It is usually best to choose the
most recent site you can find.


Look through your newspaper for subjects
you would like to learn more about.


Ag These students are
i learning about healthy
eating habits by playing
a game on the comput-
er. They understand that
, finding out facts can
also be fun.











Sometimes you may find many
different answers to a question. For.
example, one source may say the
compsognathus dinosaur is as big as
a crow. Another may say it's as big as
a chicken, and another may say it's
as big as a turkey.
The trouble is, experts may not
really know. They may not have
found enough bones to know for
sure. - >


Credit where credit is due
In your paper, be sure you list
where you got your information. If
you copy something, be sure you put
it in quotation marks and say who
wrote it. Never copy someone else's
work without giving him or her cred-
it. Instead, gather the facts and then
write them in your own words.

Be Safe When Using Heely Skate Shoes

BE SAF whe 'sn .Hels sktsosrskts


From ARAContent
Participation in after-school activi-
ties and community sports has
become increasingly popular. With
kids heading back to school, many
children will be signing up for sports
for the first time.
From softball to skateboarding,
sport participation can lead to injury.
For many sports, protective gear and
safety lessons are the first steps to
ensure an injury-free school year.
The American Academy of
Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) stresses
the importance of protective gear
while engaging in a particularly new
phenomenon - heeling.
Heelys - also known as roller shoes
or street gliders - are shoes that have
a wheel on the heel. These types of
shoes fall into the category of inline
skates which qualifies them as a sport,
and carries warnings for their use,
including wearing protective gear such
as wrist guards and helmets to avoid
injuries.
According to Dr. James H. Beaty, a
pediatric orthopedic surgeon and
president of AAOS,
"Orthopaedic surgeons are in fact
seeing children come into their prac-
tices with injuries due to Heeleys,
mostly of a fracture-type within the
hand, wrist or elbow."
For a child to maneuver in roller
shoes, they merely shift their body
weight backward over the heels, the
wheels then engage and cause a
change from walking to rolling.
"As these shoes are sold in depart-
ment stores, parents buying them may
develop a false sense of security - that
they are like any other shoe," Beaty


said.
"Roller shoes are very similar to being on roller
blades or inline skates and protective gear should
be worn at all times. If children are to 'heel,' it
should not be done while going down a hill, over
a curb or over rocky areas," he said.
Once kids have mastered safe heeling, they
may want to wear them to school. Some schools
have banned Heelys from being worn on school
grounds during the school day, but if school is
within walking distance, and they're used with
the proper safety precautions, Heelys can be a,
great way for kids to get to school. Just be sure
they bring another pair of shoes to change into.
Injuries can be avoided if safety precautions
are remembered. Below are a few safety tips for
those that take up wheeled-shoe sports:
* Learn the basic skills of the sport; particular-
ly how to stop properly,, before venturing out.
* Wear a helmet, wrist protectors and knee and
elbow pads.
* Avoid rolling in crowded walkways.
* Avoid rolling in traffic. If you come to a cross
walk, obey traffic signals, stay to the right side of
the sidewalk and don't weave in and out of
crowds.
* Heel on smooth surfaces, away from traffic.
* Do not let a young child heel unsupervised.
Before heading out to buy wheeled shoes,
keep the following in mind:
* Do not buy roller shoes that put too much
pressure on any area of your foot; the pressure
can cause blisters.
* Choose the shoe size at the end of the day
when feet will be their largest.
* When selecting the size of the roller shoe,
wear the same type of sock that will be worn
when heeling.

injuries, visit www.orthinfo.org.

Don't Drink and Drive This Labor Day Dr. At LRMC Completes
ByDr. Steven Stylianos gum and Tic Tacs have your reaction time and Cmputer Navigation Surgery
Chief of Pediatric also been listed as quick impair your judgment, %Jmputer Navigation Surgery


Surgery,
Miami Children's
Hospital

Labor Day culminates
the deadliest driving sea-
son in the United States.
In 2005, Labor Day saw
506 motor vehicle fatali-
ties, almost 200 of which
involved a driver with a
blood alcohol concentra-
tion (BAC) of more than
.08 percent (the illegal
limit in all states).
Although the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA)
recently reported that
overall traffic fatalities
declined in 2006, the
number of alcohol-relat-
ed fatalities actually
increased slightly.
Drivers aren't getting
the message that drunk
driving is deadly, often
buying into myths that
they are not affected by
alcohol or that they can
deceive an officer, but
those myths aren't reality.
See for yourself:
Myth: Placing a penny
under your tongue will
alter the results of a
breathalyzer test, render-
ing it ineffective.
Mustard, Ice Breakers


and easy ways to get out
of a DUI, but none work.
Law enforcement offi-
cers have found nothing
that drivers can put in
their mouths to reduce
the reading of a breatha-
lyzer.
In fact, The Discovery
Channel's Mythbusters
recently tested this theory
with a variety of objects
and foods, from pennies
to onions. The only sub-
stance that altered the
reading was mouthwash
- because of its alcohol
content, the BAC results
slightly increased.
Myth: Coffee or a cold
shower will sober you up
to the point that it's safe to
drive.
Coffee and a cold show-
er may wake you up, but
they certainly won't affect
the amount of alcohol
that's in your system. Only
time can do that.
Myth: If I pay closer
attention and drive slow-
er, I can drive just fine
after drinking.
Inching along below
the speed limit can be just
as dangerous as speeding,
and can also pinpoint you
as a drunk driver.
Just one drink can slow


wnicn no amount o0
attention can counteract.
The only safe driving is
sober driving.
*Myth: Drunk drivers
drink liquor. If I stick to
beer and wine, I'm safe.
Alcohol is alcohol. It
doesn't matter if you're
drinking beer or bourbon,
merlot or martinis, each
drink affects your ability
to drive. A 12-ounce beer,
a five-ounce glass of wine
and a 1.5 ounce shot of
liquor all contain the
same amount of alcohol
- and choosing one over
the others will not
improve your reflexes or
judgment.
As law enforcement
officers step up the
"Drunk Driving. Over the
Limit. Under Arrest."
campaign around the
Labor Day holiday,
remember that there is
only one proven method
to beat a drunk driving
charge.
It's actually the easiest
and most inexpensive of
all - don't drink and
drive.


Lakeland Regional
Medical Center was first in
the United States to com-
bine unicompartmental
knee resurfacing surgery
with computer navigation'.
The minimally invasive
procedure was performed
successfully by Dr. Donald
Serot, orthopedic surgeon,
on Aug. 7.
Dr. Serot specializes in
conditions of the knee and is
one of the few surgeons in
the area to use a computer
navigation system with
every joint replacement.
"Computer navigation
provides guidance to the


surgeon so more accurate
knee resurfacing and
replacement is performed,"
said Dr. Serot. "The result is
better functioning knees
that last longer."
The navigation system
acts as a surgical assistant to
surgeons, providing them
with extra support and guid-
ance to precisely align
implants.
The surgeon first attaches
small pins called "trackers"
to the bones and to the
instruments. During surgery,
the surgeon is able to identi-
fy several landmarks on the
bones, allowing the comput-


Teen Grief Group Offered


Children and teens who
have lost loved ones grieve
just as deeply as adults, but
they have different ways of
expressing their grief.
Good Shepherd Hospice
offers grief support groups
specifically designed for
children and teens where
they can share their feelings
and learn ways to cope with
the pain and sense of loss.
A free, six-week children
and teen grief support
group is scheduled to run on
Thursday, Sept. 13 to Oct.
18 at the Good Shepherd
Hospice Bethany Center, 50


Lake Morton Drive, in
Lakeland.
The group will meet from
5:30 to 7 p.m. and is open to
children and teens, ages 6 to
17 who have experienced
the death of a loved-one.
One parent or guardian
must agree to also attend.
Participants need not have
used Good Shepherd
Hospice programs in the
past.
For more information,
contact Thelma Ralat at 616-
2823 or, toll-free, at 1-800-
464-3994 to register or for
more information.


er to identify the best align-
ment for the implant and
restore healthy physiology.
The navigation system
tracks the surgeon's instru-
ments in real-time, showing
the actual position of the
implant on a monitor. As the
surgeon proceeds with the
resurfacing of the joint to
accommodate the implant,
the navigation system veri-
fies the preparation accura-
cy before the final implant is
inserted and again after it is
in place.
With optimum alignment
achieved through the use of
the precision navigation sys-
tem, the life of the implant is
extended due to even weight
distribution - resulting in
less joint wear.
When there is less joint
wear, there are fewer reasons
to worry about revision
surgery in the future. With a
more perfect fit, recovery
becomes less painful and
mobility is restored more
quickly.
With unicompartmental*
knee resurfacing, patients
are up and walking the same
day, discharged the next day
and back to enjoying their
favorite activities in weeks or
even days.

Yellow Jackets Stumble Against

Panthers in Kickoff Classic, 21-14


By JEFF THORNBURG
Sports Correspondent

Don't tell Panther fans
Friday's Kickoff Classic win
over Bartow doesn't count.
The 21-14 win over the
Yellow Jackets, ended
Mulberry's decade-long
frustration against, its
Highway 60 neighbor.
The start of the game was
delayed about 45 minutes
due to lightning in the area
of the Phosphate Bowl.
Mulberry began the scor-
ing with an eight-play, 72-
yard drive on their opening
possession. The scoring
drive was capped by a 17-
yard off-tackle run up the


right side by sophomore
Rowe Lorenzo.
After a scoreless first
quarter, Bartow junior quar-
terback Christian Clay con-
nected with Jamal Darling
on a 63-yard pass play for
the Yellow Jackets' first
points of the season, tying
the game at 7-7 early in the
second quarter.
The Panthers struck right
back on the their next pos-
session. Quarterback Steven
Willis hooked up with Jerrell
Carr on a 73-yard scoring
pass, giving the Panthers a
seven-point halftime lead.
Bartow would tie the
game again with the open-
ing possession of the second


half. A. 67-yard, four-play
drive took them straight to
the end zone, capped by a
one-yard quarterback sneak
by Clay.
Mulberry took the lead for
good in the fourth quarter
when Carr sprinted along
the right sideline 36 yards
into the end zone.
The wet conditions
caused a combined eight
turnovers - five for Bartow
and three for Mulberry.
Bartow will now prepare
for the regular season home
opener against the Winter
Haven Blue Devils, who also
suffered a 21-14 setback
Friday against Ridge
Community.


Florida Sees Largest Ever Increase

In Students Taking the ACT


Florida has had its largest
ever increase in both the
number and percentage of
high school graduates who
took the American College
Test (ACT).
This year, 81,527, of'
Florida's 2007 high school
graduates took the ACT, an
increase of 23 percent
(15,228 graduates) over
2006. Nationwide, the num-
ber of ACT-tested graduates
increased only 8 percent.
In addition to the record
number of graduates who
took the ACT, Florida saw a
large increase in the per-
centage of students who
took the ACT as compared
to last year.
Of Florida's 153,100 high
school graduates, 53 per-
cent took the ACT in Florida
compared to 45 percent
(147,700 graduates) the
prior year and 42 percent
nationally.
The ACT is one of two
college entrance tests
Florida students can take.
Florida has significantly
larger percentages of minor-
ity students taking the ACT
than the national average.
Minority students represent
51 percent of this year's test
takers, compared to 31 per-
cent nationally.
During 2007, African
Americans represented 23
percent of the Florida test
takers, compared to 13.5
percent nationwide.
Hispanic students com-
prised 19 percent of Florida
test takers, compared to 8
percent nationally. Since
1987, the percentage of.
Florida minority test takers,
has increased 26-percent-
age points, reflecting a long-
term positive trend.
The ACT is comprised of
four separate exams in
English, reading, math and
science and an optional
writing test. Students
receive a score for each sub-
ject as well as a composite
score, which is the average
of all the subject scores.
In Florida, the 2007 aver-
age composite score is 19.9,
down four-tenths of a point
from 20.3 last year, which is


not uncommon when there
are also increases in the per-
centage of test takers.
Florida's Hispanic students
continue to outscore
Hispanic students national-
ly with an average compos-
ite score of 19 compared to
18.7 nationally. Florida's
African-American students
scored slightly lower than
the national rate, earning a
16.4 compared to 17.
Results on the ACT'
underscore the importance
of students taking rigorous
coursework, especially in
math and science. In gener-
al, students who took high-
er-level math and science
courses in high schools
scored much higher on the
ACT than those who did not.
Florida students who
took calculus while in high,
school scored an average
24.3 on the math section of
the ACT, compared to 20.4,
for those whose highest
math course was trigonom-
etry or another advanced
math and 17.4 for those who
had not gone beyond geom-
etry and algebra 2.
Similarly, students who
had skipped past general
science to take biology,
chemistry, and physics aver-
aged 22.7 on the ACT sci-
ence section. Students with
three years or more of sci-
ence, but not Physics, aver-
aged 19.1, while those who
had less than three years of
natural science averaged 18.
To bolster student
achievement in math and
science, the Florida
Department of Education.
recently created the new
office of mathematics and
science to increase the rigor
and relevance of secondary
programs to increase the'
number of students who
graduate prepared for post-
secondary education and
the workforce.
This new office will over-
see the development and
implementation of new
world-class math and sci-
ence standards, develop
and deliver professional
development, and coordi-
nate all state and federally


funded programs in these
subject areas.
For more information on
the office of mathematics
and science, visit
www.fldoestem.org.
In addition, Florida's high
school requirements have
increased this year and
require four years of math.
The ACT is a voluntary
college entrance exam. ACT
scores can be used for
admission to a state univer-
sity, the Talented 20 pro-
gram, for meeting qualifica-
tions for the Bright Futures
Scholarship Program or for
placement into regular col-
lege courses. Students may
access information about
the ACT and other college
entrance exams through
Florida's online student
advising system, the Florida
Academic Counseling and
Tracking for Students at
'www.FACTS.org.

ACT ,and to view the ACT

New FWC Officers To Hit The Woods and Water


They come from various
backgrounds, but they all
have one thing in common -
the desire to protect the
state's natural resources.
Yesterday, 34 diverse and
determined recruits official-
ly joined the ranks of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission (FWC) to
become conservation law
enforcement officers.
Before earning that sta-
tus, recruits had to com-
plete 29 weeks of training,
which included alligator
handling, man-tracking,
vessel operation, all-terrain
vehicle driving, defensive
tactics and firearms.
FWC Commission
Chairman Rodney Barreto
praised the new officers.
"I'm extremely proud of
this group of people,"
Barreto said. "It's not easy,
but by successfully com-
pleting the academy, they
have joined a professional
organization dedicated to
protecting the state's pre-
cious natural resources."
FWC's law enforcement
commander, Col. Julie
Jones, also praised the new
officers.
"These officers are our
new ambassadors," Jones
said. "They will help people,
enforce Florida's laws and
educate those whom they
come in contact with about
our great state and its natur-
al resources."
The elite group will be
assigned to areas through-
out Florida. As FWC officers,
they will have the authority
to enforce every law of the
state, but enforcing fish and
wildlife laws will' be their
primary function.
"Resource protection is
what we do every day."


Jones said. "But these offi-
cers also are prepared to do
their jobs in unexpected
ways - whether it is helping
people in hurricane-rav-
aged areas or assisting in
search-and-rescue opera-
tions."
The class started with 43
recruits, but nine of them
dropped out. The recruits
who stayed and made it are
eager to get to work.
A commercial fisherman
had told Ben Westrope
about law enforcement
positions with the FWC.
Westrope, who was a squad
leader at the academy, for-
merly worked in research at
NOAA. He wanted a more
active role in conservation.
Like Westrope, Naomii
Tye also is ready to start
working. A former laborato-
ry technician for the Florida
Dept. of Agriculture, she
was drawn to the FWC
because of her love of the
outdoors. She duck hunts
and fishes for bass.
Sandra Blackburn, for-
merly held a civilian posi-
tion as hotel manager for
the U.S. Army in Germany. A
job with the FWC seemed
like a good fit when she
returned to the United
States two years ago.
Building swimming pools


was not something William
Suggs was committed to for
the rest of his life, but now
he is to the FWC. Hailing
from Pensacola, Suggs grew
up hunting and fishing.
In college, Suggs majored
in criminology but realized
he didn't want to just drive
around in a car on a regular
beat. When he heard what
FWC law enforcement had
to offer, Suggs said, "That
was it."
After a, year on the job;
FWC Officer Doyle Cook
returned to the academy as
a counselor for this class.
Cook is stationed in
Southwest Florida and is
glad he signed on with the
FWC.
"I'm on land and on the
water," Cook said. "I get to
go to Big Cypress, the
Everglades, patrol panther
zones and go out on a boat
in the Ten Thousand
Islands."
As for the new graduates
and what they are about to
take on, Cook recommends
they take the time to learn
from others.
"They should model
themselves after their senior
officers and ask them a lot of
questions," Cook said,
"because there will be a lot
of them."
