Gatorland: Florida Natives

I love living in Florida.
Other than the oppres-
sive heat in the summer,
the weather is great, the
people are nice, and where
else can you see some-
thing as cool as alligators?
When I was very young,
and we had first moved to
Florida from frigid
Connecticut, my family, of
course, visited Orlando,
land of Mickey, Minnie
and Gatorland.
What I remember from
my first visit is stepping
through the large bleached
jaws of a gator into basi-
cally a very small tourist
attraction.
Well, over the years, a
lot has improved, and
Gatorland is still making
improvements.
We set off early Sunday
morning, and about 45
minutes later, we were
pulling off Orange
Blossom Trail, and into
Gatorland.
Gatorland is located
smack in the middle of a
busy area. Across from a
couple of shopping plazas,
the attraction looks very
small, and while it is much
smaller than say Disney
World or Universal, it is a
world away from the com-
mercial highway.
After being admitted,
we entered the park and
wandered past a greeter
parrot.
I have always been fas-
cinated by talking parrots,
and this one delighted me
for probably much longer
than anyone else, ever.
I had thought the "hi,
hi," came from a speaker,
and when I realized it was
the parrot, I became
instantly obsessed with


)se

hearing the bird offer
some other sentiment. I
am not sure that he knows
other words, but he did
repeat his greeting often.
The park has kind of a
corny, cute feel, with a
large dog house offering
the home of "Cuddles" a
fake, but still scary python.
And the signs are both
cute and educational.
As the jumping gator
show was starting soon,
we quickly made our way
past an assortment of
Florida animals, including
a sleeping bear, deer and
real, although glassed-in
poisonous snakes.
The snakes were foul,
and unlike most zoo
snakes, these were awake
and slithering, searching, I
am quite sure, for blond
girls to eat.
I moved quickly past,
refusing to become tempt-
ed by my companion's
invitations to see how
incredible the white in the
cottonmouth's mouth was.
The jumping gator
show was full of puns and
actually kind of funny
jokes, that both children
and adults should enjoy.
The actual jumping
gators and crocodiles were
enormous, but surprising-
ly hungry, and willing to
jump higher than I could
for raw chicken.
After the show, we
stopped by the water park.
If I was still a child, the
price of admission would
be worth this fun-looking
park. It featured water
attractions, water guns to
shoot other children, and
a playground.
As it was about a thou-
sand degrees, I wandered
in to partake of the spray,

Polk Commission Approves


$1.8 Billion Spending Plan


By DAWN WADE
StaffWriter

In a short meeting with little public
participation, Polk County commis-
sioners approved next year's $1.8 bil-
lion spending plan, up from this year's
$1.6 billion budget.
But while spending is up, taxes were
decreased, and commissioners
approved the county's millage rate at
6.8911, a decrease of 1.3819 mills over
last year.
This means, for those living in a
property valued at $100,000 after
homestead exemption, the tax will be
$689.11.
The approved millage rate is expect-
ed to bring in $242.3 million.


Commissioners also approved a tax
of .4219 mills for the parks municipal
service taxing unit (MSTU), .2109 mills
for the library MSTU, .20 mills for envi-
ronmental lands debt service.
Municipal service taxing units are
areas required to pay taxes for services.
In the case of the libraries and parks,
county residents are required to pay a
tax for use of city parks and city
libraries through the Polk Library
Cooperative.
For the first year in recent memory,
residents chose not to speak (or com-
plain) about property tax levies, but
rather growth, the need for services,
and, in one case, a local park.
What concerned Auburndale resi-
dent Ray Ready was the growth of the


budget, which he said has inflated on a
yearly basis.
"You have decreased property taxes
by 9 percent; you should decrease
spending by the same," he said. "Since
2000, the county budget has increased
173 percent.
"I think it is time to rethink how you
are spending the citizen's money and
cut back," he said. "My generation is
suffering the burden of high taxes and
high impact fees like never before.
"The county cannot be all things to
all people and should limit itself to
providing the things that are neces-
sary."

School Board Approves $1.5 Billion Budget


By BRETT LOWE
StaffWriter
A $1.5 million budget was
approved 6-0 by the Polk
County School Board for the
2007-2008 school year on
Tuesday.
Board member Tim Harris
was not present for the
meeting.
The total budget for the
year is the largest it has ever
been at $1,524,629,020, up
about 10 percent from last
year's $1,389,815,644 bud-
get.
The general operational
budget makes up slightly
more than half of the total


budget at $798,356,641.
Instructional services use
$489,963,589 of that money,
with support services and
administration using
$51,367,637 and
$39,658,451, respectively.
Funds used to build new
schools and make additions
take up the second largest
part of the budget at
$427,589,498.
Because of an increase of
$5,343,405,027 in gross tax-
able property value in Polk
County, the village rate has
been decreased in compli-
ance with state mandate.
Total millage has dropped
.258 mills from 7.770 mills to


7.512 mills. Required local
effort decreased to 4.752
from 5.010 last year. Basic
discretionary local effort,
additional discretionary
local effort, and capital out-,
lay millage have all
remained unchanged at
.510, .250, and 2.000 respec-
tively.
The budget was present-
ed to the school board by
Mark Grey, assistant super-
intendent of the business
services division. After he
finished, a public hearing
was held, but no one chose
to speak except school board
members wishing to thank
Grey and his staff for their


work on the budget.
While there had been
concerns about statewide
budget cuts having an
impact on the school dis-
trict's funding, Board
Chairman Margaret Lofton
said that Governor Charlie
Crist had promised to not
allow any cuts to education.
She said that she hoped
that would remain the case,
and that they would use the
figures previously promised
by the Legislature until
informed otherwise.
The budget is available on
the school board's website at
www.polk-fl.net.


What is now a plain parking lot at Bartow Civic Center
will soon be dressed up with shumart oaks in curbed oases.
A sidewalk will go through the middle of the landscaping,
extending from the present walk across from Bartow Public
Library to the racquetball courts. Wheelchair ramps will be
built on each side of the blocks. J.D. Davis, division chief in
the city's public works department, smooths a curb, while
more concrete is poured in the background. The parking lot
will be resurfaced, as well. - Staff photo by Peggy Kehoe

Bartow Municipal Airport
and Industrial Park
Executive Director Cynthia
Barrow was the guest speak-
er at the Sept. 11 luncheon
meeting of the Bartow Lions
Club.
Mrs. Barrow is a 31-year
employee of BMA. The gov-
erning board of the facility,
which is owned by the City
of Bartow but is self-sustain-
ing, is the Bartow City
Commission. ,
More than 1,300 people
are now employed at BMA,
between the airport opera-
tion and the various indus-
trial firms located within the
confines of the airport
boundary, Mrs. Barrow said.
The airport has three
active runways, maintains
120 "T" hangars for aircraft
shelter, and offers aircraft
maintenance and aviation
fuel, as well as providing
flight training. The 5,000 foot
runways will accommodate
a 727 jet aircraft, Mrs.


Barrow said.
A new airport building,
which houses executive,
administrative and flight
preparation offices, an air-
port museum, and restau-
rant which can seat 120 per-
sons, was opened there this
year.
The airport was built in
1940 as a flight training base
for fighter aircraft of the
United States and other
allied nations during World
War II.
Mrs. Barrow introduced
Chris Scott, who operates
the restaurant and bar at the
airbase. The Flightline Grill
is open from 10:30 a.m. to 2
p.m. Monday through
Friday, and serves dinner on
Friday evenings from 4 to 9
p.m. A Sunday brunch buffet
is available from 9 a.m. to 2
p.m.
President Fred Egli intro-
duced the speaker. Loren
Wideman was introduced as
a reinstated Lion member.

Organ Donors Are Life Savers


For thousands of people waiting
for organ transplants, the clock is
always ticking.
We can save lives if we' decide to
become organ donors.
It's something we all have the
opportunity to do.

They wait by the phone.
Many times it rings in time to save
their lives.
Sometimes it doesn't.
According to the Web site ustrans-
plant.org, as of Sept. 7 of this year,
:92,216 people are on waiting lists for
transplants. As of the same date,
14,225 transplants had taken place.


Unfortunately, the difference
between the number of those wait-
ing and the number of transplants
performed seems as vast as the
ocean. Yet, for those 14,225 people
who received donated organs it was
a miracle - a life-saving blessing.
It's a personal, and for many, a dif-
ficult choice whether or not to.
become an organ donor.
Fortunately, thousands of citizens
across the'state and the country
have opted to help someone else
after they die. So me 6,000 donations
from living don rs also take place


each year.

INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD

The Poet


When Mr. Smith asked me to
speak here tonight I thought he
was joking. I'm no speaker and
I'm no expert on nothing, except
hash, maybe. I told Mr. Smith
that but he said for me just to
talk to y'all like I was talking to
my friends down to Harry's. I
have to be back to work by eight.
Friday night is our busiest time.
Harry needs me.
Now let me say right off the
bat that I'm all for education. If I
wasn't, I wouldn't have worked
so hard to get my GED, and I
wouldn't have signed up last
week to take a class over to the
junior college. But if you look
around at all the kids that are
flunking, and them that ought to
be, you can't help but see some-
thing has gone wrong.
As most of y'all know, I quit
:school in the tenth grade. I'm
inot stupid. I just never had time
to study. When Daddy run off
with Letty Enthauer, I had to
work afternoons after school
and on weekends to help Mama
'pay the bills.
, After I dropped out I got me a
Sfull-time job as a dishwasher at
Hungry Harry's Homestyle Hash
House, and now I'm Harry's
night manager, the head hash
Sslinger when Harry's not there.
I've worked hard for Harry and I
started climbing up the ladder
fast.
SHe come back to the kitchen
after a long, busy night and
,slapped me on the back and
,goes, "By golly, Buddy, out of all
the dishwashers I've had, I do
believe you're the best worker
out of 'em all!" And right then
and there he give me a dime-a-
hour raise!
That made me feel mighty
good, a long way from how I
used to feel when my teachers
give me back papers with big red
.Fs scratched on 'em. That made
me want to slide down out of my
desk and crawl under the carpet.
with the cockroaches; but
instead of crying, I'd laugh and
make out like flunking was
funny.
Of all the teachers I ever had,
the one I liked and respected the
most was Mr. Smith, who asked
me to speak here tonight.
Mr. Smith never got mad.
He'd act mad sometimes, like
when some smart-aleck got too
nasty and he'd kick him out of
class. But then he'd grin and
crack some corny joke.
SMost kids liked him, even the
tough guys that he wouldn't take
crap off of. I think that's why
they liked him; they knew where
they stood in his class and what


the score was. He was the boss in
his classroom and they knew it,
Mr. Smith never put a F on
any paper I ever turned in, but
he'd chew me out good if I didn't
turn one in. He'd mark a few
spelling and punctuation errors
and at the end he'd write a little
note.
He told the truth, even when
it hurt. He said my reading and
writing skills was on about a fifth
grade level. That made me feel
sick, but he said it didn't mean I
was stupid, and that it wasn't
altogether my fault.
What really won me over to
Mr. Smith was what he wrote on
a paper I wrote about a friend of
mine named Jim who died.
"Buddy," he wrote, "You have
the heart and soul of a poet. If
you ever have the opportunity to
back up and brush up on the
basics, please do, because you
could be a great writer!"
Now I want you folks to know
those words scribbled at the bot-
tom of that paper brought tears
to my eyes. I didn't believe it, but
it was the nicest thing any
teacher ever said to me.
SIt takes a pretty special per-
son to handle a roomful of kids
the way Mr. Smith did. One time
I asked him how he did it and he
just smiled and lifted up his eyes
and said he didn't do it alone. I
guess he meant God helped him,
but I don't see how since God
has been kicked out of every
school in the country.
Not every teacher can be a
Mr. Smith any more that every
baseball player can be Babe
Ruth. But all in all I think teach-
ers are the hardest trying and
hardest working people I know
of. I wouldn't put up with the
crap they do for no amount of
money.
I don't think kids need more
education; they need less. What I
mean is, a little learned well and
remembered seems to me to be
better that a lot learned a little
and forgot fast.
How's a kid gonna do calcu-
lus when he doesn't know basic
math? How is he gonna under-
stand The Odyssey when he
can't read Old Yeller?
Don't blame the teachers.
They do the best they can with
what they've got to work with.
What happens is a teacher gets a
room full of mostly decent kids,
but there's always some jerks
who won't listen or even try to
learn; they cause so much trou-
ble the teacher has to spend
more time trying to keep them
in line than teaching.
But if he flunks 'em the par-


ents go whining to the principal
blaming the teacher instead of
the kids who goofed off all year.
If the teacher gets in trouble for
flunking too many, next time
he'll probably pass 'em because
he don't want to be called a bad
teacher and maybe lose his job.
It'll take a lot bigger mind
than mine to figure out how to
keep kids on track. It really
ought to start at home, but in a
lot of cases, it doesn't.
I'll tell you this, though: there
won't be any answers until more
people start to care. By caring I
don't mean giving away good
grades like gumdrops and pass-
ing the troublemakers and dead-
beats on to the next grade
whether they deserve it or not.
I'm talking about making 'em
behave and do their work - and
if they don't, sending 'em to an
alternative school.
It's not right that a few smart-
alecks ruin things for everybody.
If a bag of oranges has a few rot-
ten ones in it, you pick the rotten
ones out or else the whole bunch
will go bad. Kids need to learn
discipline. When they start
learning discipline, everything
else will begin to fall in place.
The problem is that so many
kids these days have no respect
for themselves or anybody else.
And they have no fear because
they know nobody can touch
'em. Except for a few old-fash-
ioned parents who've got some
common sense and hold their
kids responsible for their behav-
ior and grades, most people
blame teachers.
But that's stupid. When a kid
won't shut up long enough to lis-
ten and won't even try to learn,
how's the best teacher in the
world gonna teach him any-
thing?
I thank y'all for having me
here, but my time is about up so
I better get on back to work. I
sling hash a lot better than I talk,
so if any of y'all get hungry,
come on down to Harry's and I'll
sling you up a plate that'll make
your mouth water.
And if you're interested, this
week we've got napkins with a
little poem of mine printed on
'em. Harry gets 'em printed that
way when he likes what I've
wrote down on a tablet I keep by
the cash register when business
is slow.

For Organ Sharing, when you
become an organ donor, you can
help save or improve the lives of
more than 50 people.
The group stresses that any deci-
sion to become an organ donor
should always be discussed with
family members first.
You can indicate your desire to
donate your organs on your driver's
license and by signing and carrying
an organ donor card.

Survival.
Whether it is a 6-year old girl
school girl or a 50-year old construc-
tion worker, for thousands of recipi-


ents that's a word they will never for-
get.
Neither will they forget that there
was a person who made the decision
to save lives by sharing their organs
after their life ended.
Many of us have friends who are
alive today because someone else
chose to become an organ donor,
and friends who anxiously await
notification that a life-saving organ
has become available. ,
Albert Einstein said, "Only a life
lived for others is a life worthwhile."
It's up to us - we have the power
to save lives.

Now slightly cooler, we
wandered off to the swamp
trail to visit the crocodiles of
the world.
During this part of the
walk, I almost stepped into
a picture of a lizard that a
small boy was taking. It
filled me with joy that some-
one saw a lizard fascinating
to photograph, and I hope
he saw the amazement of
the tiny, wild lizard, a little
cousin of the enormous alli-
gators he was seeing..
The crocodiles were
mostly sunning, and the
walk eventually led to a
large lake, with a beautiful
observation tower. From
this tower, alligators could
be seen living in their natur-

Our final attraction was
the alligator-wrestling exhi-

show started, visitors could
have photographs taken
with taped-mouth gators.
A tiny boy approached
the gator, and, once seated
on his back, began petting
the gator. He seemed
unaware the beast was not

The wrestling offered less

Jared Fogle, Subway
spokesman who lost 245
pounds, will be in Lakeland
Thursday to talk about the
upcoming Polk Start! Heart
Walk.
He will be at the Subway
at 2278 Griffin Road, dis-
cussing with Polk County

importance of starting
heart-healthy habits like eat-
ing a balanced diet and exer-

For every one hour of vig-

walking, you gain two hours
of life expectancy, he said.

Walk is scheduled for
Saturday, Sept. 22, at the
IMC Agrico Park in Bartow,
starting at 7:30 a.m.
The Polk Start! Heart Walk
- one of the Polk County's
largest "walk" events with
2,000 participants - pro-
motes physical activity and
heart-healthy living in a fun
family .environment and
benefits the American Heart
Association.
Walking has the lowest
dropout rate of any physical
activity and is the simplest
positive change individuals
can make to effectively
improve their heart health.


The American Heart
Association offers these
steps to get started with any
physical activity:
Step 1 - Safety is always a
priority. Moderate physical
activity is safe for most peo-
ple, but some adults may
need to check with their
healthcare provider first.
Men older than 40 and
women older than 50 who
plan a vigorous program or
who have chronic disease or
risk factors for chronic dis-
ease should contact their
physician to design a safe,
effective program.
Step 2 - Understanding
American Heart Association
recommendations for physi-
cal activity for heart health:
* Moderate-to-vigorous-
intensity physical activities
for at least 30 minutes on
most (and preferably all)
days of the week.
* Physical activity can be
accumulated throughout
the day. It's,, important to
include physical activity as
part of the regular routine.
* Moderate-to vigorous-
intensity physical activity for
at least 60 minutes most
days of the week to help lose
weight or maintain weight.
Step 3 - How do you
know if your physical activi-


ty is enough? One way of
knowing whether your activ-
ity is moderate or vigorous is
the talk test. The talk test
method of measuring inten-
sity is simple:
* A person who is active at
a light intensity level should
be able to sing while doing
the activity.
* One who is active at a
moderate intensity level
should be able to carry on a
conversation comfortably
while engaging in the activi-
ty.
* If a person becomes
winded or too out of breath
to carry on a conversation,
the activity can be consid-
ered vigorous.
'Research shows that the
benefits of walking and
moderate physical activity
for at least 30 minutes on
most days of the week or
every day can help reduce
the risk of coronary heart
disease, improve blood pres-
sure, maintain body weight
and enhance mental well
being.

Walk, call the American
Heart Association at 1-866-

HIGHLAND

CASSIDY, LLC



An open letter to the Citizens of Bartow:
My name is George Lindsey and I am vice president of Highlands Cassidy LLC. After three
(3) years we have recently obtained approval in connection with a development known as Wind
Meadows South on E.F. Griffin Road. I am writing this letter because the Citizens of Bartow deserve
to know the facts in order to make an informed decision about how and where your City should grow,
instead of relying upon the misstatements and emotional rhetoric with regard to this development.
A few residents of E.F. Griffin Road, and others, believe that the working families, who would
own their homes at Wind Meadows South, are somehow riot worthy of being a part of Bartow. The
school teachers, deputies, nurses, firemen, 'mine workers, and dozens of other occupations are not
the "high end consumers" that they want to live in their neighborhood. This small group is
circulating a petition for referendum and we would ask that before you sign such a petition
you consider the following:
1. The E.F. Griffin Road folks claim that schools have been ignored in this process. The
fact is that Wind Meadows has to meet school concurrency requirements or
development would halt. This is a specific term of the zoning ordinance. The Wind
Meadows homeowners will be paying school taxes and Bartow city taxes over two
times that of the median value homeowner inside the city limits. Additionally, these
residents will be paying over $3,300,000 in school impact fees.

2. The Petitioners would have you believe that Wind Meadows will make Bartow a "city
of concrete" when in fact the negotiated neighborhood plan adopted by the Bartow
City Commission specifically requires that 28% of the site (over 76 acres) are open
space, recreation- and conservation areas.

3. The E.F. Griffin folks would have you believe that the homeowners and the recreation
facilities at Wind Meadows, including the softball field, the soccer field, pool,
clubhouse, jogging trails, basketball court and picnic areas are somehow, a drain on
the city of Bartow. This in spite of the fact that these same homeowners would be
paying almost $2,000,000 in recreation impact fees to the city of Bartow.

4. We have invested in your City. The City of Bartow and Highland Cassidy entered into
a contract in 2005 whereby Highland Cassidy paid for a $1,400,000,00 sewer line to
serve Wind Meadows, at the proposed density, and the surrounding areas, including
the new elementary school. It has been built, paid for by Highlands Cassidy, and
dedicated to the City of Bartow.


5. Despite the rhetoric Wind Meadows is a model for smart growth in the state of
Florida. That has been the opinion of every professional planner regarding the
development. The development's only flaw is its misfortune of being in proximity to
wealthy, vocal, and litigious neighbors.

Another thing that needs to be clarified is the clam that Highland Cassidy LLC has threatened or
intimidated the City such that this recent zoning ordinance was approved. In fact, what Highlands
Cassidy LLC has done is appeal the denials of their zoning requests because it believed that the
denials were not based upon competent evidence but rather the emotional pleas of a few vocal
residents of the road. Through negotiation and compromises on both sides that has now been
worked out and the City will be getting a full and complete release by Highlands Cassidy, LLC of
any claim Highlands Cassidy could ever have against the City with regard to this development.

To the contrary, the individuals on E.F. Griffin Road have filed lawsuits on other
developments on their road and promised to do so here if their demands are not met. Don't
forget their lawyer, who lives on the road pocketed huge legal fees while the lawsuit he filed cost
the City of Bartow hundreds of thousands of dollars; dollars that could have been used to hire
policemen, buy firefighting equipment, or purchase library books.

The City of Bartow staff, management team, city commission leadership and the city's
legal counsel have concluded the negotiated Wind Meadows site plan conforms to all of the
city's current development standards and it is in the best interest of the city to close this
chapter and move the city forward with other important business. IT IS THESE CITY
OFFICIALS WHO HAVE THE BEST INTEREST OF YOUR CITY IN MIND.

On behalf of the Wind Meadows Team and all future homeowners we are proud to be
part of the City of Bartow. We respectfully ask that you think before you sign any petition
that are long on emotional rhetoric and short on facts.

Citizenship Day, Sept. 17


Settling in America


"Give me your
tired, your
poor,
"Your huddled
masses yearn-
ing to breathe
free,
" "The wretched
4A refuse of your
teeming
shore.
"Send these,
the homeless,
tempest-tost
to me,
"I lift my lamp
beside the
golden door!"


These words are on a plaque inside
the base of the
Statue of Liberty in
New York Harbor.
They were written by
Emma Lazarus in
1883. Her family " "
came to the United
Stats from Portugal. Emma Lazarus
Wel e 1849-1887
Welcome
Lazarus' poem was meant as a wel-
come for people coming to America -
people who wanted to be free, who had
to leave their native lands, and who
had traveled a long way.
The Mini Page celebrates
Citizenship Day, Sept. 17, by exploring
immigration.


America's immigrants
SImmigrants are people who come to
a new place to live permanently. Most
experts agree that the earliest immi-
grants to North America probably
came across a land bridge between
northeast Asia and Alaska about
13,000 years ago. These people are
believed to be the ancestors of Native
Americans.
About 1,000 years ago, people came
across the northern Atlantic Ocean
from Ireland and Norway. Some land-
ed on the coast of Newfoundland in
what is now Canada.
Arriving in the Americas
In 1492, the
king and
queen of
Spain sent
Christopher - -
Columbus
across the
Atlantic. He
landed in San Salvador in the
Bahamas, southeast of Florida. When
he arrived, millions of Native
Americans lived in North and South
America. About 1 million to 3 million
lived in the area that would become
the United States.


Tracing your roots
Even if you and your parents were
born in the United States, your family
may be able to trace its roots to anoth-
er country.
In the 1800s and early 1900s, more
than 63 million people migrated to the
United States. Most of them were
from Europe: England, Scotland, Italy,
Ireland, Germany and other countries.
Others were from Asia, Africa, Canada,
and Central and South America.

SAsk your
L parents
(9 about your
ancestors
and where
they came
from.

Immigrants came to the United
States for many reasons. Some were
looking for land to farm or better jobs.
Others wanted to freely practice their
religion, or they were unhappy with
the government in their homeland.
Many European immigrants settled
in cities along the East Coast. States
in the Midwest and West advertised
their farmland to those looking for
land. In 1862, the U.S. government
passed the Homestead Act, which sold
160 acres cheaply to settlers who
would stay at least five years.
Some immigrant groups lived close
together and didn't often mix much
with other groups.










The Mini Pa?


Becoming a Citizen


When a person comes to the United States to stay, he
or she applies to be a lawful permanent resident.
Some people call this having a green card. (The cards
were once green. When they were changed, the name
stuck.)
Lawful permanent residents have certain rights and
responsibilities: They must pay taxes, but they cannot
vote in some elections or be a member of a jury. They are
protected by U.S. laws.
Citizens' responsibilities
All U.S. citizens have certain responsibilities. They
include:
u ei* Support and defend the
Constitution against all
enemies.
1* Stay informed about
S issues that affect you.
SVote.
" * Respect and obey all
laws.
* Respect the rights,
beliefs and opinions of oth-
- ers.
y Pay taxes.
* Defend the country.
This soldier is defending his * Serve on a jury when
country. Immigrants who join called.
our armed forces are able to
become U.S. citizens more * Participate in your local
quickly, community.


Citizenship
If a lawful permanent resident wants to become a citi-
zen, he or she must apply for naturalization. The U.S.
government will check the immigrant's history and make
sure he or she is eligible.
Naturalized citizens
have the same rights
and responsibilities as
native citizens, except
they cannot be president
of the United States.
In general, to become These new citizens took an oath
naturalized, a person of allegiance to the United States
must: in July in Philadelphia.
* be 18 years old or older
* have been a lawful permanent resident for five years
* be a law-abiding resident

More About Immigration


First Mexican-Americans
In 1848, when the Mexican-
American War ended, the United
States gained a large amount of
southern and western territory in
North America. Many Mexicans
lived there.
The United States gave them the
choice of becoming U.S. citizens or
moving south into Mexico. Most of
them stayed. They were the first
Mexican-Americans.







In the 1920s, many Mexicans came to
the U.S. to work. Some worked in agri-
culture and others moved to cities.
Getting along better
During World War II, many immi-
grants fought in the American mili-
tary. After the war, immigrant
groups began to get along better with
each other. Kids of parents from dif-
ferent countries played together, and
people from different religious back-
grounds married each other. This is
part of assimilation (uh-sim-i-LA-
shun), or becoming more similar.
Today's immigrants
Since the 1960s, many more peo-
ple have come to the U.S. from
Mexico and Central America than
from other countries. They may be
looking for work or trying to escape
war and other problems.
Most immigrants later apply to
become U.S. citizens, but many cross
the southern U.S. border without
permission, or a visa, from the gov-
ernment. They are called illegal
immigrants.


Immigrating illegally
Some Latinos, or people from Mexico
and countries in Central America, have
entered the U.S. illegally. Some swim
across the Rio Grande, a river between
Texas and Mexico, or walk through the
desert. Others have ridden in trucks, o]
hidden on trains or in the trunks of
cars.


: ; -, -" -- ' . ..,


Illegal immigrants have come from other
countries, too, such as the Dominican
Republic and Haiti. Some travel in small,
unsafe boats.


Immigration plus and minus
Immigration adds a lot to the cul-
ture of a nation. People from
other countries
bring new ideas,
customs and lan-
guages to our
towns and neigh-
borhoods. They
introduce us to
unusual foods and interesting enter-
tainment, such as dance and music.
But immigration also puts pres-
sure on a country. Sometimes it's dif-
ficult for people of different back-
grounds to get along. The added
numbers of people can strain a
nation's resources, such as energy,
water and food supplies, housing,
jobs, health care and education.
Some Americans worry that immi-
grants might not have the same val-
ues and will not'defend and protect
America in times of crisis. They are
concerned that people won't assimilate.


r



Groups of immigrants have joined
together in favor of an amnesty, or
forgiveness, of illegal immigrants. This
sign reads: "No human being is ille-
gal."
Coming to America this way is not
only illegal, it's also very dangerous.
People have died walking in the heat
of the desert or riding in hot, over-
crowded trucks. Overloaded boats
have capsized at sea.


Government gets involved
You may have been hearing news
reports or your parents talking about
immigration reform.
President Bush and the Congress
have been working to come up with
a plan that will keep aliTe America's
tradition of welcoming newcomers
while being practical about how
many people we can take in.
Earlier this summer, President Bush
and some U.S. senators proposed that
about 12 million illegal immigrants
in the U.S. be given a chance to
legally stay here and become citizens.
Their idea also included making U.S.
borders more secure so people couldn't
so easily cross the border illegally.
However, most of the Senate did
not agree with the plan, and it never
came to a vote.

The Mini Page thanks the Office of
Communications at the U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services for help with this
issue.

IN MEMORY

In Memory of
Wilson Smothers
Nov. 13, 1935 -Sept. 19, 2005
It's going on 2 years. God
took you away from us. No one
knows why, but it hasn't been
easy. There is not a day goes
by we don't miss your voice and
wish you were still here with us.
.A lot's happened we wish you
were a part of.
Kathy has gotten married.
His name is Eddie and they are
expecting a little boy. They have
chosen Daniel Wilson after you.
And also for you to meet your
other grandson, Mark. But she
got the very best. Just like her
Daddy.
We're keeping Mom going.
She is excited about becoming
a grandma.
Dad, I know one day we will
all see each other again, but
you give God a message: "He
has a special person in His gar-
den." He has you.
We love you and miss you
dearly.

Love,
Morn, Eddie, Kathy, Mark, Paula
and your 1st grandson, Daniel.

Lawmakers Glad Budget-Cutting Session Pushed Back


By BOB FLISS
StaffWriter
How's this for a paradox?
Sept. 5th's announcement
that the Legislature's special
budget-cutting session had
been canceled was actually
redundant - because you
can't cancel something that
hasn't been scheduled in the
first place.
The Legislature is all
about procedure, after all.
Although both House
Speaker Marco Rubio and
Senate President Ken Pruitt
warned their members in a
July letter that they should
keep the latter half of
September open, they never
went so far as to issue the
actual special session order.
All they told legislators
was that they had picked
Sept. 18 as a likely start date
for a session that could have
run through the first week of
October.
So, Wednesday's letter to
members is about as bind-
ing as the one in July.
Basically, Rubio and Pruitt
stated that progress on iden-
tifying potential budget cuts
is going slowly.
While they remain opti-
mistic that the budget can
be trimmed by another bil-
lion dollars or so, the Sept.
18 target date no longer
looks good. They didn't


speculate on an alternate
date.
Delaying the special ses-
sion "is probably a good
thing, on a few fronts," said
Rep. Paige Kreegel, R-Punta
Gorda. "It means progress is
being made to zeroing in
what cuts can be made. Also,
people are of two different
minds - one favoring
across-the-board cuts, the
other targeted cuts. I think
you are going to see some
cuts in every department."
The budget needs further
work mainly because of the
slowdown in residential real
estate sales. Documentary
stamp tax revenues are a
major state revenue source,
even though this tax is large-
ly unknown to the public.
These revenues wax and
wane with the real estate
market - and home sales
across Florida are down
about a third from their 2006
levels.
The latest revenue fore-
casts are even lower than the
conservative estimates the
Legislature was using when
it wrapped up a $71.9 billion
budget in May, explained
Rep. Mike Grant, R-Port
Charlotte. This in itself was a
reduction from $73 billion in
2006.
Gov. Charlie Crist used his
line-item veto to trim about
another $500 million from


the budget.
But'the current economy
has proven tougher still.
Crist directed every state
agency to come up with a
budget that would reflect a
10-percent general fund cut.
This was done for planning
purposes, with the recogni-
tion that the real cuts would
amount to only about 2 to 3
percent of general fund rev-
enue.
Grant said he's disap-
pointed over how many
agencies have handled
Crist's mandate.
"It was their responsibility
to give us options. Rather
than doing that, they punt-
ed. They tried to figure out
ways they could protect
their budget and shift the
cost to someone else," Grant
said.
For example, several
agency proposal included
mixing general fund revenue
- which as the name states
is no-strings money used for
normal operating expenses
- with trust fund revenue,
which is money held for spe-
cific purposes like new con-
struction. This is a funda-
mental breach of public
budgeting rules, Grant
noted.
While legislators don't
have a deadline on budget
cuts, the clock is ticking on
an unrelated problem that


everyone in Tallahassee
knows needs fixing - and
many wish would just go
away.
Florida's 1970s-vintage
no-fault automobile insur-
ance law expires Oct. 1. The
main feature of the law is its
requirement that all
motorists purchase $10,000
of Personal Injury Protection
coverage.
This money is doled out
- almost on a no-ques-
tions-asked basis - for
emergency room care, out-
patient treatment and mis-
cellaneous expenses like lost
wages.
The problem with PIP has
been that the $10,000 is
enough to attract swindlers
but not enough that insur-
ance companies can afford
to challenge every claim.
Outpatient "PIP clinics"
have sprung up across the
state - but chiefly in
Miami-Dade, Broward and
Palm Beach counties -
offering outpatient treat-
ments, usually just enough
to consume the full $10,000
benefit.
Although lawmakers are
aware of PIP fraud, they're
also cautious about letting
the current law sunset with-
out a replacement. The
House Republican leader-
ship in August introduced a
bill that would cap outpa-


tient awards to $5,000, while
allowing hospital emergency
rooms to claim up to the full
$10,000. The law would also
be extended through 2012.
Will this make an ade-
quate PIP compromise?
Kreegel said he doubted that
the Republican leadership
would not have prepared the
30-page bill without a "wink
and a nod" from the Senate.
"I think there will be
chaos in the state of Florida
if at this late date we let PIP
go," Grant said. Given the


fact that the Sept. 18 date is
dead, Grant said he could
envision lawmakers hurry-
ing up to Tallahassee to vote
on a last-minute PIP repair
bill.
"I guess it would have to
be the last week of the
month," Grant said. "I'd be
ready to go to work Saturday
or Sunday, if that's what it
takes."

for the Charlotte Sun-
Herald.


Commercial trucks, with
more than six wheels will be
required to use the right two
lanes of Interstate 4 (1-4) in
portions of Hillsborough,
Polk, Osceola and Orange
counties by the end of
September.
The restrictions will be
enacted for approximately
60 continuous miles on 1-4,
which is six-laned from
County Road 579 in
Hillsborough County east
into Polk and Osceola coun-
ties, ending at the State Road
528 interchange in Orange
County.
The designated truck
lanes are being enacted for
safety reasons to reduce the


potential conflicts between
commercial vehicles and
passenger vehicles. The lane
restrictions are similar to
those which have been suc-
cessfully used on six-lane
sections of 1-75 and 1-95 in
Florida.
They are also consistent
with six-lane sections of 1-95
in Georgia.
To make drivers aware of
the restrictions, signs stating
"No Trucks Left Lane" are
currently being installed.
Additionally, other signs
will be placed defining the
beginning and end of the
truck restriction zone.

Using Rewards to Encourage Good Behavior


We all have expectations
for our children - behaviors
we want to see achieved, as
well as a long list of things
we don't want them doing.
Unfortunately, as .parents,
we often find ourselves
focusing on the negative
side, warning or threatening
our children about what to
do or not do.
� What research has shown,
however, is that rewards,
rather than threats or pun-
ishments, are usually much
more effective in modifying
behavior. But to be effective,
what matters are not only
the types of rewards that are
used, but also how they are
used.
Rewards don't always
have to have monetary
value. Studies show that
simple praise can be a
longest-lasting, powerful
reward. Perhaps you still

remember something you
did well in your own child-
hood because of the praise it
brought.
Something as simple as
parents paying real attention
to school work and other
projects has been shown to
be a reward that is effective
for most children. Similar
intangible rewards can
include simple things like
extra time with Mom or Dad
for a special activity, or
maybe a little extra play, TV
or computer time for having
done well.
Other times, a tangible
reward, such as a book, new
game, or special food treat,
might be appropriate. But
more important than the
type of reward is how it is
used if it is to be effective.
Research shows, for
example, that you want to
reward only occasionally.
Constant rewarding loses its
value, and if the child figures
out when a reward is com-
ing, that's probably the only
time you'll see the desired
behavior.
It's also most effective to
reward immediately after
the desired behavior.
Children don't handle


delayed gratification very
well. Similarly, you will get
better results when you
reward effort, not just per-
formance. Reward the extra
effort put into studying to
improve grades, rather than
waiting for the report card
and the final outcome.
Rewards shouldn't be
bribes. Children who per-
form desired behaviors only
to earn rewards aren't really
growing and learning to
mature positively. It's impor-
tant that rewards are not the
only motivation to perform,
because over time rewards
will lose their value. But they
can be a valuable way to
encourage short term
behaviors, and are often
more effective than using
threats and punishment to
discourage unwanted
behaviors.

Center Helps Those With

Disabilites Find Independence


By JOHN LAWHORNE
Staff Writer
DESOTO COUNTY -
DeSoto Health Resources is
known in DeSoto County as
the gateway to affordable
health care for low-income
individuals, the needy and
the elderly.
Healthcare information is
its special service. The com-
pany invited Donna Willis, a
consumer coordinator for
the Center for Independent
Living in Central Florida, to
address a workshop at
Trinity United Methodist
Church on what the center
can do for DeSoto residents.
"The reason I'm here
today is to see what we can
do for you guys," Willis said.
"You, your friends and your
family."
The main purpose of the
Center for Independent
Living, Willis said, is to help
consumers with disabilities
become more independent.
Services are provided in
DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands
and Polk Counties.
"Many disabled people
want to live more indepen-
dently, but they need help,"
Willis said.
She distributed a
brochure that states the cen-


ter's mission: "In partner-
ship with the community,
the center is dedicated to
promoting personal rights
and responsibilities among
people with all disabilities
and strives to eliminate
architectural, communica-
tion and attitudinal barriers
by providing education,
resources and training."
The center emphasizes
that the majority of its staff
and board members are
people with disabilities who
have been successful in
establishing independent
lives.
Services provided by the
center include skills train-
ing, peer support, informa-
tion, referrals and advocacy
for the disabled.
"It's whatever the con-
sumer needs to help them
become more independent,"
Willis said. "That's what
we're all about. And these
services are free to you guys.
There's no hidden agenda.
We aren't going to charge
you money.
"I know you have family,
friends, neighbors who need
walkers, who need crutches,
or wheelchairs and they
can't afford it, they don't
know where to turn. They
need to call us.


"We try our best to give
them whatever it takes them
to become more indepen-
dent. That's the whole goal
here. Learn to be an advo-
cate for yourself, learn your
rights. You have rights and
you need to know how to
assert yourself and get the
things you need.
Willis added, "There's a lot
of people out here that have
a lot of resources if you know
where to tap in on them. You
can make your life easier.
That's what we are all about
- trying to help you help
yourself. It's so rewarding
when you can help people."
For more information,
contact the center at 863-
413-2722.

Jackets Shut Out Bloodhounds

For First Season Victory, 26-0


By CHRIS THORNBURG
Sports Correspondent

The Bartow Yellow Jackets
defeated the Auburndale
Bloodhounds 26-0 at Bruce
Canova Stadium Friday
night, the Jacket's first of the
season and Bartow's fifth
. straight win over the
Bloodhounds.
The Jacket defense put
two defensive touchdowns
on the board while quarter-
back Christian Clay passed
for 166 yards, completing
eight of 16 passes on the
night. This included the
Jackets first play from scrim-
mage, a 71-yard touchdown
pass from Clay to Jamal
Darling on the game's open-
ing offensive possession.
The quick start was soon
dampened by the weather.
Lightning in the area caused
a 90-minute delay, sending
the teams to the locker
rooms, and fans under, the
stands.
Near the end of the first
half, the Bartow defense
:flexed its muscle against the
Bloodhounds. After render-
ing the Hounds scoreless
'through almost two quar-
ters, Ambrose Young inter-
cepted an Auburndale pass
at the 45-yard line, and

returned the ball all the way%
to the end zone to give
Bartow a 12-0 halftime lead.
Midway through the third
quarter, the Yellow Jackets
capped off an 82-yard drive
with a 15-yard run by Clay,
who fumbled the ball on the
goal line. The fumble was
recovered by Jamal Darling
in the end zone, and the
Jackets took a 20-0 lead.
Once again the Jacket
defense shined late in the
third quarter, as Auburndale
quarterback Demarcus
Davis was forced out of the
pocket and fumbled the ball
at the Bloodhound 37-yard
line. Bartow senior Jasper
Stephens scooped the ball
up and returned it into the
end zone for the Jackets' sec-
ond defensive touchdown of
the game.
Bartow Head Coach
Shawn Killets was satisfied
with the win.
"Both sides of the ball
played hard, and we got
lucky a couple of times on
defense," said Killets.
The Yellow Jackets
improved their record to 1-2
(0-1) heading into next
Friday's home game against
the Ridge Community Bolts.
This game will be the second
district matchup of the sea-


ment of educational leader-
