County Tourist Tax To Pay for


Bartow Park Softball Upgrades


Softball fields at the
Bartow Park recreation com-
plex on County Road 555 will
get more than three-quar-
ters of a million dollars for
renovations from the Polk
County tourist development
tax.
The city will receive
$763,500 from the tourist
tax, which is collected on
lodging in hotels, motels,
and other short-term
rentals.
As proposed by the coun-
ty, Polk County Tourist and
Sports Marketing would
have right of first refusal on
the facilities for tourna-
ments.
But city officials negotiat-
ed priority for the city for
organized league play,


Interim City Atty. Sean
Parker told the commission.
Sports marketing officials
will use the softball field
complex as a magnet to
draw large softball tourna-
ments to Polk County. The
,purpose of the tourist tax is
to fund projects that "will
put heads in beds" in the
county.
Commissioners voted
unanimously to approve the
agreement with the county.
In other business, the
commission:
* Approved a three-year
extension of the city's whole-
sale electric power contract
with Progress Energy (for-
merly Florida Power Corp.).
Commissioner Leo
Longworth said the city's


electric consultant, Ed
Wisser, had concluded that
Progress Energy's price was
the best available to the city,
and that the city will bid out
its contract before the new
agreement expires.
* Got an update from
Karen Karvasy, the city's
wastewater consultant, on
plans 'for a $30 million
upgrade to the city's waste-
water collection and treat-
ment system. Much of the
cost will be paid by the Polk
County Commission
because the city will accept
sewage from unincorporat-
ed areas of the county. Plans
to construct a force main
down 91 Mine Road have
been modified to bring the
line down Clear Springs


Land Co. property about a
mile farther east, she said.
* Was told by Interim City
Atty. Sean Parker that he is
"making significant
progress" in negotiating an
employment contract with
George Long, chosen by the
commission earlier this
month to be Bartow's next
city manager. Long will
begin on Jan. 7, but will visit
Bartow before then to see
the Halloween parade and
the Magic on Main pre-
Christmas events, and to
attend work sessions on
revision of the city's land
development and zoning
code.
* Noted Longworth's
request that the commission
support a position of the
Florida Leagues of Cities
opposing a spending cap on
an affordable housing pro-
gram supported by tax
stamps on deeds.
* Heard a request from
Jim Driskell of the Lakeland

Name Released in Fatal Crash


Bartow police have released the name of
the victim killed in an accident last week
near Polk Street.

nounced dead at the scene after the work
truck he was riding in on West Van Fleet

over Polk Street and flipped down the
embankment, coming to rest just east of
Childs Avenue.


Flags of Celtic nations and [he United States were carried by an honor guard from the
New World Celts, who were among those enjoying Friday Fest last week. Irish music from
Paul Duffy, food and beverages, a bounce house, and friendly chats make the monthly
street party fun for residents and visitors alike. New World Celts meets on the last Saturday
of each month at Molly McHugh's, 111 South Kentucky Ave., in Lakeland, at 2 p.m. Music
begins at 1 p.m. More information is available on the Web at www.newworldcelts.org. -

Have you always had a
secret desire to operate your
own Tiger Bay Club?
Now's your chance.
Earlier this month, the
Polk . Workforce
Development Board decid-
ed to withdraw its staff sup-
port of the organization,
effectively shutting it down.
The board made that deci-
sion because the Tiger Bay
Club is not in keeping with
the agency's mission of job
training and placement.
(Polk Workforce got
involved in the first place
because two founders of the
Tiger Bay Club served on the
board.)

Garcia was partially ejected from thel
truck, killing him.,
The driver of the truck was not injured.
Five other passengers in the truck were
taken to Bartow Regional Medical Center for
treatment of their injuries, and have since
been released, Bartow Police Detective Greg
Rhoden said.
No charges have been filed; investigation
of the accident is still ongoing, Rhoden said.


to pick up the reins may call
Stacy Campbell-Domineck
at 508-1600.
The Tiger Bay Club is a
loosely organized group,
with chapters throughout
the state, which invites
speakers of prominence in
the county or state to pre-
sent their viewpoints in
their areas of expertise, and
to answer often pointed
questions from the audi-
ence.
Polk County's chapter
was established early in
2004, largely under the lead-
ership of Mike Stedem.
Among speakers who
have appeared before the
Polk County Tiger Bay Club


are Congressman Adam
Putnam (twice), U.S.
Senator Mel. Martinez
(before he was elected to
that office), U.S. Senator Bill
Nelson, Congressman Jim
Davis, at least nine incum-
bent or former members of
the Florida Legislature,
County Mgr. Mike Herr,
School Supt. Gail McKenzie,
and most members of and
candidates for the county
commission and the school
board.
In addition to politicians
advancing their own candi-
dacies, topics of meetings
have ranged from living
wills to legalization of drugs.

Trick-or-Treaters Out for a 'Spooktacular'
Cause, Collecting Used Eyeglasses for Needy


"Jeepers creepers,; we
need your old peepers!"
This Halloween, local
school children will have a
"frightfully" good time "scar-
ing" up used eyeglasses
accumulating in the com-
munity, to help children and
adults in developing coun-
tries have a new out "look"
on life.
Bartow residents are
asked to look around for
eyeglasses that they have
outgrown or are taking up
room in dresser drawers,
and help give those in need a
"howling" good time.
Lions Clubs, in coopera-
tion with Bartow military
cadets, are sponsoring the
project.
/ According to a Lions Club
spokesman, one child goes
blind every minute, and half
a million will have lost their
sight by the end of the year.
"Childhood blindness is,
only one part of the global
vision crisis," the
spokesman said. "If nothing
is done, the world's blind
population could double


from 37 million to 74 million
by 2020."
True to their commitment
to be "knights of the blind,"
Lions have launched
Campaign SightFirst to pre-
vent this tragedy. With
SightFirst, Lions have a
worldwide program to com-
bat preventable blindness.
Over the last nine years,
Lions have sent nearly 48
million pairs of eyeglasses to
the official Lions Eyeglass
Recycling Centers.
Since Helen Keller's call to
be "Knights of the Blind" in
1925, Lions have crusaded
for sight conservation.
Recycle for Sight Month in
October is a means to give
Lions Club's eyeglass recy-
cling program a boost.
The eyeglasses that are
donated to. developing
countries allow a large num-
ber 6f people to see well for
the first time.
A recycled pair of eye-
glasses costs as little as eight
cents, yet the expense for
correcting poor vision is
astronomical to many peo-


pie in developing countries.
In many countries, an eye
exam costs as much as one
month's wages, and there is
often only one doctor for
hundreds of thousands.
Poor eyesight that is left
untreated can cause blind-
ness or force adults into
unemployment. Through
eyeglass donation programs,
glasses are made available to
millions each year.
All types of glasses for
children and adults are
needed, including very
strong and very weak pre-
scriptions. Reading glasses
and non-prescription sun-
glasses also are helpful.
The Bartow Lions Club
has a year-round eyeglass
recycling program, with sev-
eral collection drop-off units
in town, including one at the
Bartow Public Library.
Collected glasses are
cleaned, categorized by pre-
scription, and prepared for
distribution in local home-
less sites, but mostly over-
seas in third world coun-
tries.

Teen Depression Should Not Be Ignored


A serious, but often over-
looked problem for many
teens today is depression.
It's far more common than
most parents realize, and far
more serious than most par-
ents want to admit. Teen
depression can lead to a
variety of problems, with
teen suicide at the top of
that list.
Unfortunately, deciding
whether your teenager is
depressed is not an easy
task. Most teens are
"moody" at times. Teens
face hormonal and physical
changes, the stress of school
and jobs, relationship issues
with peers and a variety of
other pressures that can
leave them stressed and
uncommunicative.
But the most serious
form of depression, usually
described as teenage
depressive disorder,-is more
than just being moody. It's
persistent feelings of
depression that interfere
with the teen's ability to
function normally. And it
does have certain warning
signs:
- Previously good grades
slipping
- A dramatic change in
attitude


- A radical shift in your
child's identity
- A major change in
friends
- Loss of interest in pre-
viously enjoyed activities
- Withdrawing from
friends and family activities
and becoming uncommu-
nicative.
While none of these
behaviors alone mean your
child is suffering from
severe depression, when
you see one or more it sig-
nals a need to pay more
attention to what he or she
is facing.
Since virtually every teen
tends to hold back on shar-
ing too much with a parent,
it takes effort to find out
what's going on. Ask ques-
tions anyhow. Ask about
friends, school and current
activities; Be persistent.
Your child may resent the
intrusion, but you have a
responsibility to know
what's happening in his or
her life.
It also helps to be more
involved. Try spending more
time with your teen. Simple
things like family dinners, or
encouraging friends to be
invited to the house, can
help open doors and show


your care.
The most important
thing is to not ignore any
warning signs. Studies
report about only one-third
of clinically depressed teens
are actually diagnosed.
If you suspect problems,
talk to adults who know
your teen, from teachers to
school counselors to sports
coaches. If they have also
noticed potential problems,
seek help. Your school coun-
selor, family physician or
local mental health organi-
zation can usually offer sug-
gestions on counseling pro-
fessionals specializing in
teen issues.
Teen depression is not
just a "phase" that will be
outgrown. Ignoring it can
leave your teen's life hang-
ing in the balance.

Q: Is cracked wheat
bread the same thing as
whole wheat?
A: Cracked wheat simply
refers to whole-wheat
berries that have been bro-
ken into smaller pieces. This
process typically yields
products with a lighter taste
and texture than those
made with regular whole
wheat.
Although cracked wheat
is a whole grain, be careful:
Some "cracked wheat
bread" contains only a
token amount of cracked
wheat and is made mainly
of refined flour.
When shopping, check
the ingredient label to make
sure that cracked wheat or
whole-wheat flour is listed
first. The primary position
shows it's the main ingredi-
ent. The American Institute
for Cancer Research (AICR)
emphasizes that whole-
grain and minimally
processed grains are more
healthful choices than
refined products.
Whole grains are higher
in dietary fiber, several vita-
mins and minerals, and a
variety of health-promoting
phytochemicals.

olive oils?
A: All forms of olive oil
provide the same amount of
fat and calories. Light olive
oil is processed to have a
light color and a subtle fla-
vor - more similar to other
vegetable oils than the dis-
tinctive taste of regular olive
oil.
If a lighter flavor is not
needed, choose virgin or
extra virgin olive oils, which
are less processed than the
light form.
These varieties are also
higher in natural plant com-
pounds that may offer can-
cer protection and other
health benefits. Overall,
olive oil is an excellent
choice.
It is considered a heart-
healthy selection and it does
not appear to promote can-
cer development.
Regardless of which type
you choose, use moderate
amounts to avoid getting
more calories than you
need.

Although many people
realize they overeat or lack
balance in their food choic-
es, they aren't sure when,
why or how much they eat.
To keep track, experts
often recommend recording
the day's intake, with notes
on time, portion sizes and
location of the meal (restau-
rant or home, kitchen table
or sofa with TV).
It is also helpful to note
how hungry you are (1 to 10
scale) and. record your
thoughts or emotions when
eating. All of this record
keeping yields crucial infor-
mation that may help to
identify specific problem
areas and offer., hints about
what needs to change.
To foster a positive atti-
tude create a food log that
keeps track of successes, not
failures. For example, try
noting how many servings
of vegetables and fruits you
eat each day and how often
you choose whole grains, or
record instances when you
chose to relieve stress in
non-food ways.
Regardless of how you
choose to log your eating
habits, for the food record to
help you, it needs to be
something that you keep up
with regularly.


Alzheimer's Institute Plans


Caffeine Human Trial Test


Byrd Alzheimer's Institute
in Tampa is conducting
human trials replicating its
innovative caffeine study,
which showed that long-
term caffeine intake
reduced the risk of
Alzheimer's disease in mice.
"The link between caf-
feine and Alzheimer's is a
fascinating one teeming
with possibility for both pre-
sent and future Alzheimer's
patients and their families"
said Dr. Huntington Potter,
CEO and scientific director
of the Byrd Alzheimer's
Institute. "These human tri-
als are the second crucial
step to investigating
whether caffeine can have a
truly therapeutic effect on
our brains."
Byrd Alzheimer's Institute
researcher Dr. Gary
Arendash, documented
promising outcomes in
mice in a previous caffeine
study, the results of which
were published in the jour-
nal Neuroscience last year.
The Byrd Alzheimer's
Institute's prior research
showed that the human
equivalent of five cups of
coffee per day (500 mg/day)
protected mice with
Alzheimer's against certain
memory impairments and.
reduced disease pathology.
In the study, Dr. Arendash
and fellow researchers gave
Alzheimer's mice caffeine in
their drinking water and
then tested the mice in a
variety of tasks involving
learning, memory and
recognition.
Across multiple behav-
ioral measures, the


Alzheimer's mice given caf-
feine performed much bet-
ter than those given normal
drinking water.
The researchers also test-
ed levels of beta-amyloid -
proteins that cause the
death and dysfunction of
brain cells - in the mice's
brains. Again, the
Alzheimer's mice given caf-
feine had much less beta-
amyloid present than those
given normal drinking
water.
"Caffeine is not just treat-
ing the symptoms of
Alzheimer's," Dr. Arendash
explained. "It is' actually
treating the disease
pathologies."
Now the Byrd Alzheimer's
Institute is, replicating its
groundbreaking caffeine
study in human trials.
Researchers will conduct
the study by monitoring
participants' levels of beta-
amyloid proteins, which are
substances in blood that act
as a marker for the presence
of Alzheimer's in humans.
Researchers will give par-
ticipants caffeine tablets
containing the equivalent
amount of caffeine in five
cups of coffee. Over the
course of two days, the sci-
entists will measure blood
levels .of beta-amyloid pro-
teins.
If the levels are reduced
in the blood, that is a good
indicator that the beta-amy-
loid levels would also be
reduced in the brain.
The use of caffeine could
revolutionize the treatment
of Alzheimer's, Dr. Potter
explained. Unlike prescrip-


tion drugs, which can be
expensive and hard to
obtain for some people, caf-
feine is readily available and
affordable. If it proves to be. -
effective, caffeine could be
administered through
tablets.
Alzheimer's, a neurode-'
generative disease that
results in the loss of brain
cells and their connections,
affects 4.5 million
Americans and costs the
U.S. economy $100 billion a'-
year. Ten percent of people
age 65 and older and half of
those ages 85 and older
have the disease.

Editorial


Tax Reform: Better No Plan Than a Worse One

It has been said that anyone who actually believed that it could be the same conclusion. The 500- eral Legislature is inefficient is cor-


loves sausage or respects the law
should never watch either being
made.
There is some merit in that.
It would be easy to ridicule the
Florida Legislature for its inability to
rewrite Florida's ad valorem tax law
in one week.
Easy, yes, but unfair.
Some call the government's defin-
ition of a crash program: "Give me
nine pregnant women and I'll get
you a baby in a month." By that stan-
dard, perhaps the assumption in
Tallahasssee is: "Give me 160 Florida
legislators and I'll get you tax reform
in a week."
We're not sure the former is much
more illogical than the latter. The
difference is that the Legislature

enon in a microcosm.


And none of us has a political ax to

half dozen or so editors and publish- face.
ers - including the publisher of this If it had been an important
newspaper - confer several times a enough issue, like, say, endorsing a
week by e-mail, reviewing and com- baseball team in the World Series,


meeting on each other's proposed
editorials. All are persons of consid-
erable experience and presumably
average intelligence, at least for
newspaper editors.
Last week, one editor wrote an
editorial endorsing the Legislature's
proposal for tax caps, among other
things. This newspaper made sub-
stantial revisions in the wording for
publication here, while supporting


we probably would have negotiated
and found a position we could all
support. Sometimes we conclude
that it's not worth the fight, and
move on to the next subject.
- And that essentially is what the
Legislature did. It was not
Democrats and Republicans who
could not agree; it was Senate lead-'
ers and House leaders.
(Anyone who thinks that a bicam-


rect; that is one of its greatest
strengths. Bicameral: made up of
two houses. Remember that; it
might be on the final exam.)
We were no fan of the "homestead
super-exemption" plan that the
Legislature devised last spring, and
we're glad a judge pulled it from the
ballot.
Perhaps some of the ideas floated
at last week's special session were
better, but we'd rather see the
Legislature postpone a decision for
more study than rush through a bad
decision.
Floridians want - and deserve -
property tax reform. But we deserve
a plan that's better than the one
already in place, and it will take
more than a week to create it.


INSIDE OUT / By CHIP BALLARD

Halloween Ambiance Year 'Round


Beauty is truth, truth beauty;
that is all ye know on earth,
and all ye need to know.
From "Ode on a Grecian
Urn" By John Keats
"It's all in.your mind," some-
,one said. Is it really? Some
:think so. Others scoff at the
' idea. I've come to believe it.
During a drought, brown
:grass, in my view, is more
beautiful than green grass.
A few years ago when
Hardee County was beginning
to resemble Oklahoma during
the dust bowl, and water
restrictions were being strictly
enforced, I would cringe when
I've drive by green, luxurious
lawns.
My own yard, dry, parched,
brown, and spotted with sand-
spurs, to me looked infinitely
more attractive.
"Now there's a guy who con-
serves," some of my neighbors
said, their voices tinged with
awe and admiration. Others
: whispered, "He's too lazy to
water his yard."
Truth is I did water it, once.
But I felt guilty squirting water
on the ground while some peo-
ple, I'd heard, had mud sput-
tering out of their faucets and
shower heads; I wondered if
the folks with the lush, green
lawns had the same qualms.
Take dust. The sight of it
: sends some people scrambling
for dust rags. Me, I've gotten
beyond that. I've learned that
dust is a protective coating that
will add years to the life of fur-
niture.
It has other functions, too.
Instead of trying to keep track


of pens and paper, you can
simply write notes in the dust
with your finger.
"Honey, I've gone to the
store for soap," is infinitely
more effective written in the
dust on the bathroom wall
than scribbled on a piece of
paper and stuck to the mirror
where it can easily fall off and
float down into the toilet where
the water blurs the ink, render-
ing it unreadable.
Spider webs? They should
be appreciated for the works of
art that they are, not swept
away like trash. Did you ever
look closely at one? The intri-
cate designs are breathtaking.
Let them grow and expand
in your home and you will have
precious, natural art and year-
round Halloween decoration
money can't buy.
To most people's minds, the
most beautiful automobiles
are those that are new and
bright and shiny, without a
speck of dust, a scratch or
blemish. But if you look
beneath the surface, and think
on a deeper level, you realize
owners of such vehicles are
nervous wrecks.
A bug hits the windshield
and they speed to the nearest
car wash. A small scratch
appears and they burn rubber
all the way to the shop to have
it touched up. Owners of shiny
new vehicles don't breathe eas-
ily for at least two years, by
which time they begin to real-
ize keeping their vehicle in
mint condition is impossible;
only then can they begin to
relax.
Our society brainwashes us


into believing women are
beautiful only if endowed with,
certain physical attributes. Do
these physical features, which
will fade like flowers in the fall,
really indicate beauty? Or is
there something 'that lies
beneath the surface far more
substantial?
The lyrics of a popular song
a few years ago go
"If you want to be happy for
the rest of your life
"Never make a pretty
woman your wife;
"From my particular point
of view
"Get an ugly woman to
marry you."
The song laments the perils
of marrying a beautiful
woman, saying it isn't the pic-
nic one might imagine because
other men are always flirting
with her, and she, being
human, is flattered, and, soon-
er or later, flirts back. A man
married to a woman oozing
what society portrays as beau-
ty worries constantly that
some guy will steal her away.
The great philosopher Plato
said most of us live as if we
were bound in the back of a
cave, mistaking the shadows
cast upon the walls by flicker-
ing firelight for reality; and
were we able to break free and
emerge into the pure light of
truth, we would be stunned at
the wonder of it.
I bet old Plato never dusted
his coffee table, swept spider
webs off his walls, washed his
car, or watered his lawn.
He probably married an
ugly woman, too.

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

Skirting the Issue in Japan


One of the most memo-
rable scenes in a James
Bond film - at least for a
scene that didn't involve
beautiful women, high
speed chases, or fancy gad-
gets - was when Bond,
James Bond, was standing
on a sidewalk and he spot-
ted someone whom he did
not want to spot him.
Bond - Sean Connery,
the real James Bond -
turned toward a building
and wrapped his arms
about himself. From the
back, it looked for all the
world like he was engaged
in a passionate embrace
with one of the aforemen-
tioned beautiful women.
Camouflage, of which
James Bond's embrace was
at least a first cousin, works
not by hiding a person or an
object, but by manipulating
the appearance in such a
way that the object sought
to be obscured blends in
with the surroundings.
A passionate smooch on
a public sidewalk - espe-
cially in a James Bond
movie - simply fits in with
the surroundings. The
absence of a beautiful
woman in Bond's arms is
easily overlooked, except, of
course, by 007 himself.
And such appears to be


the reasoning behind the
invention of a Tokyo cloth-
ing designer named Aya
Tsukioka.
A New York Times report,
complete with pictures,
shows how Ms. Tsukioka
designed a skirt with a flap
which can be whipped up to
reveal a full-size fabric
photo of a vending
machine.
If the wearer believes
herself to be in danger, she
whips up the skirt flap, rais-
es it above her head, and
looks exactly like a cloth-
covered vending machine, a
machine with two feminine
feet protruding at the bot-
tom.
According to The Times,
a woman who feels herself
in danger simply steps to
the side of the road and dis-
guises herself as a soda pop
machine, albeit a machine
that perhaps needs ironing.
The feet showing at the
bottom,' and the fact that
from the side the drink
machine looks like a
woman holding a blanket in
front of herself, are fine
points that perhaps will be
worked out. Another ver-
sion, which starts out as a
kimono and not just a skirt,
is a four-sided model that
hides the wearer from all


sides. And if she'll just lower
it a few inches, it could han-
dle that pesky foot problem.
"It is just easier for
Japanese to hide" than to
make a fuss, Ms. Tsukioka
said. "Making a scene
would be too embarrass-
ing." That is compared to
converting one's self into a
wrinkled cloth vending
machine.
The inspiration for her
camouflage outfit came
from ancient ninjas, who
wrapped themselves in
black blankets to become
virtually invisible at night.
I am all for anything that
helps the Good Guys out-
smart the Bad Guys, and if
dressing up like a soft drink
machine will do the job,
that's great.
But given the number of
people whom I have seen
attack a vending machine
as if it were their personal
enemy for failing to dis-
pense their selection, I have
concerns about what will
happen if a crook that
dumb stops in mid-chase to
plunk two or three quarters
into the machine for the
pause that refreshes.
Somehow, I think this
idea may need a little refin-
ing.


FULL CIRCLE / By C. J. MOUSER

Success Is Just a Click Away


It sure is nice to know that
all I have to do is sign onto
the Internet and check my
mail, and I will find that all
my problems have been
solved.
On any given day there is
someone proclaiming that
they will find me a new job,
consolidate my debts, make
me healthier /stronger/
younger / more appealing to
the opposite sex and / or
give me an IQ test so that I
can know how smart I am
not.
Have you ever taken an IQ
test? A sample question is as
follows:
Q: Which number should
come next after 144, 121,
100, 81, 64?
A: 17, 19, 36, 49, or 50.
Well, call me crazy, but I
consistently come up with
144, 121, 100, 81, 65, which
you can clearly see is not an
option in the answer list. I
think it's safe to say that my
IQ is roughly equivalent to
my shoe size, and frankly,
why do I need to be remind-
ed of that?
Q: John likes 400 but not
300; he likes 100 but not 99;
he likes 3,600 but not 3,700.
Which does he like?
A: 900, 1,000, 1,100 or,
1,200.
Who cares? John clearly
needs to get a life. Many of
you may know the correct
answers to these cryptic
questions. If you do, keep
them to yourself, huh? I took


one of these tests the other
day and immediately
received an e-mail telling me
that I was too dumb to live,
and please don't contact
them anymore.
Well, hey - you contact-
ed me, I didn't contact you.
I get confirmations for
stuff I never ordered, offers
for loans, cell phones, satel-
lite television, new cars,
overnight fat burners, and
offers to hook me up with
kids I went' to high school
with some 30 years ago.
Frankly, if I'd wanted to
stay in touch with these peo-
ple I would already know
where they are and how
they're doing. Why do I need
to know that the class nerd is
now worth $16 billion?
I could refinance my
house, meet the love of my
life, protect my pets from
fleas, make money at home,
get life/health/auto insur-
ance, naturally fight stress,
and save on printer ink car-
tridges.
I could qualify for a schol-
arship, get any ring tone I
want, fly to the Bahamas for
pennies on the dollar, and
protect my personal infor-
mation for a lifetime with
just a click of a button. I go
down this list with my finger
poised over the delete but-
ton.
Delete, delete,- delete,
delete. Sometimes I get
stuck in delete mode and get
rid of something I should


kept.
"Did you get my e-mail
the other day? I'm still wait-
ing for an answer!"
Oooops.
Meanwhile I try to be
more careful when I delete
mail that promises me that I
can learn to speak Spanish,
German or French in three
easy steps, get my contrac-
tor's license, learn to paint
like DaVinci, curb carpal
tunnel syndrome, and create
a resume that will "knock the
socks off the competition."
Every single Internet
provider claims that they are
the absolute tops when
blocking unwanted mail. So
why is it, then, that I contin-
ue to get mail regarding
everything from re-growing
hair to solving my PC prob-
lems?
Right now the only prob-
lem I am having with my PC
is dealing with the tons of
junk mail I get every day. If
they could really figure out a
way to fix that, all my prob-
lems would be solved.
I wouldn't be losing the
hair they promise to re-grow,
I would not be nearly so at
risk for carpal tunnel syn-
drome, and my stress level
would go down consider-
ably.
Makes perfect sense to
me.

'Polk Growth Matters' Workshops


sPolk County Planners
along with Polk Vision will
be hosting three public
workshops, entitled "Polk
Growth Matters," to get citi-
zens' comments on how
they want Polk County to
grow in the future.
Polk Growth Matters is a
joint venture of the Polk
County Long Range
Planning Division and Polk
Vision. Earlier this year,
these groups hosted a series
of workshops to listen to
what citizens consider the
most important growth-
related issues facing Polk
County.
In response, planners


have developed a set of pro-
posed growth strategies that
are intended to address
these issues.
The next round of work-
shops will provide an oppor-
tunity for citizens to review
and comment on these pro-
posed growth strategies.
The public is invited to
attend any or all of these
community workshops to
discuss growth and related
issues in Polk County.
Workshops will be held
on:

Growing a Drought-Proof Landscape


By CHARLIE NARDOZZI
Family Features

I love warm, sunny, dry summer
days. But too many of those days in
a row can spell disaster for my
plants.
Drought has become a common
occurrence for many gardeners.
While in my area droughts may
only last a few weeks, in some
regions they can go on for years.
Whether your droughts are short
or long-lived, there are steps you
can take to create a landscape that
can resist the vagaries of the
weather and still look great.

Choose the Right Plant for Your
Location
Selecting the right plant for your
location and growing it properly
can go a long way toward having it
survive rainless periods. The
wrong plant growing in the wrong
location will struggle and be more
susceptible to dying from drought
and disease or insect attacks.
Plant trees and shrubs in full or
part sun, depending on the variety.
Consider the location of overhead
power lines, windows and doors
when planting, so you won't have
to stress the plant by drastically
pruning it when it grows too large.
Choose native plants that are
more tolerant of drought, insects
and diseases. Listings of native and
drought-tolerant plants should be
available through your state uni-
versity's Cooperative Extension
Service.

Plant Correctly
An old garden adage goes,


GARDENING .
--^R..^. Charlie


,i o'rm l !i ra cd r "ig O . c e ',--


"Never put a $10 tree in a $2 hole."
Get your plant off to a great start by
digging a hole three times the
width of the football and as deep
as the ball. Be sure the soil is well-
drained. Fill the planting hole with
water. If it takes longer than a few
hours to drain, consider another'
site.
Amend the soil with compost,
fertilizer and lime only if the soil is
poor quality, such as heavy clay or
mostly sand. Heavily amending
the planting hole encourages roots
to stay in the hole and not grow
into the native soil where they
belong. Keep the plant well-
watered by placing irrigation bags
around trees and mulching with a
3- to 4-inch-thick layer of bark
mulch. Keep the mulch at least 6
inches away from trunks to avoid
crown rot.

Grow Lawns Properly

Be selective about where you
grow lawn grass. Most grasses
thrive in full sun and struggle in
part or full shade, especially under


Senorita6 Rosalita Cleome hybrid (a drought tolerant plant). - Photo courtesy of Proven Winners


trees where they have to compete
with tree roots for water and nutri-
ents. Select grass varieties tolerant
of diseases, insects and drought. In
shady areas, try growing ground
covers such as vinca, pachysandra
and violets instead. For deep shade
areas, such as under pine trees,
skip ground covers and grass and
spread mulch.


Water and Fertilize Wisely
Install drip irrigation lines
around trees, shrubs and flower
beds. Use a timer to water in the
early morning. Fertilize with a
slow-release or organic fertilizer at
the appropriate time for your,
plants: trees and shrubs in early
spring and after a fall frost; lawns
in spring and early fall; and vegeta-
bles and annual flowers in spring.


Charlie Nardozzi, a nationally
recognized garden writer, book
author, speaker and radio and tele-
vision personality, has appeared on
HGTV, PBS and Discovery Channel
television networks. He is the senior
horticulturist and spokesperson for
the National Gardening
Association and Chief Gardening
Officer for Hilton Garden Inn.

expected to be seen roam-
ing the halls at Bartow High School during the DCT Haunted Hall Friday and Saturday, Oct.
26 and 27. Students and community people will be lurking for people to scare in the 500
and 600 wings of the school. Haunted Hall will be open from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Cost is $3 for

Citadel Cadet Pvt.
Samantha Hamil is one of
nearly 400 Citadel seniors
now wearing the Citadel
Sing.
Members of the Class of
2008 received their Citadel
rings on Oct. 12 during the
annual Parents' Weekend
event. In the crowd at the
Charleston, S.C., military
college were Mike and Tracy
[lamil of Bartow,
Samantha's parents.
A 2004 graduate of
Bartow High School, she is
majoring in business and
finance.
The ring presentation
kicked off a weekend of
activities and events for par-
ents and families.
Additional highlights
include academic depart-
ment and barracks open
houses and a military dress
parade in honor of all par-
ents. Also, members of the
Class of 2011 were promot-
ed to cadet privates, signify-


ing the end of their military
training period.
The Citadel ring marks a
milestone in a cadet's jour-
ney toward graduation.
Cadets must be proficient in
all areas - academic, mili-
tary duty and discipline -
to receive a ring.
"Wearing a Citadel ring is
an obligation that you
accept... an obligation that
implies you will abide by the
core values of The Citadel,"
said Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa,
president of The Citadel.
"Academics, duty, honor,
discipline, morality and
diversity are the core values
that shape our institution.
These core values, along
with our vision of
'Excellence in the Education
of Principled Leaders,'
speak to the highest and
best ideals of character.
"By wearing a Citadel
ring, you are accepting a
commitment to conduct
yourselves in a manner that


will make your classmates
and the generations of oth-
ers who wear the ring
proud."
Also during the ring pre-
sentation, the families of
five deceased cadets who
were members of the Class
of 2008 were presented with
their sons' rings. The rings
were paid for by classmates
and The Citadel Alumni
Association.
Receiving rings were the
families of Brett Mitchell
Warren, Clarke Gilbert
Russell and Blake Alexander
Campbell, all of
Simpsonville, S.C.; Leith
Paul Trask of Beaufort, S.C.;
and Payson Dana of
Florence, S.C. Warren,
Russell and Campbell died
in a car accident in
September 2005. Trask died
two months later in
November 2005 also in a car
accident. Dana died in
March 2007 in a fall at his
home.

Goodwill Gives Yearly Awards


Goodwill Industries-.
Suncoast honored its
achiever, graduate and
employer of the year on Oct.
18 at an awards luncheon at
the Renaissance Tampa
Hotel International Plaza.
The awards honor two
individuals who have over-
come daunting challenges to
become self-sufficient and
an area employer that has
fostered the success of such
individuals.
Goodwill Achiever ofthe
Year Collin Cox of Lakeland
has a home of his own for
the first time in his life,
thanks to newfound self-
confidence and a steady
paycheck earned working at
the Goodwill Outlet Store in
Lakeland.
Born with developmental
disabilities, Collin grew up in
an orphanage and later
moved to a group home, but
he never stopped longing for


his own home.
His steady job has made it
possible for Collin to move
into an apartment and expe-
rience the excitement of
buying things for his own
place, for the first time ever.
TV shopping network
HSN presented Collin with a
big-screen television for his
apartment.
Goodwill Graduate of the
Year Christa Moreland, a sin-
gle mother in St. Petersburg,
simply wasn't able to sup-
port her two young children
with her health care job.
Goodwill staff at WorkNet
Pinellas arranged child care
and tuition for advanced
nursing training, allowing
Christa to get a high-paying
part-time job as a licensed
practical nurse while she
pursued additional training
to become a surgical techni-
cian.
She landed a surgical


technician job at Health
South's St. Petersburg
Surgery Center and also has
a Sunday job as an LPN pro-
viding home health care.
Presenting sponsor
SunTrust Bank of Tampa Bay
will award a $2,000 scholar-
ship check to Christa.
Goodwill Employer of the
Year Viking Cases of St.
Petersburg has hired 36 par-
ticipants in Goodwill's sub-
stance abuse and work
release programs during the
past three years.
The company, which
manufactures custom ship-
ping and carrying cases,
offers Goodwill clients
secure employment, special-
ized training and the oppor-
tunity for advancement -
key factors in helping people
with troubled pasts get their
lives back on track.

Be Safe This Halloween Putnam


A number of families will
be celebrating Halloween on
Wednesday, Oct. 31.
With that in mind, the
Polk County Sheriff's Office
Crime Prevention Section
offers a few safety tips to
help keep "trick or treat"
activities safe.
Supervise small children
at all times. Instruct them to
only visit homes that have
the porch light on, and to
never enter the home of a
stranger.
Have children use side-
walks in well-lit streets in
familiar neighborhoods.
When choosing a cos-
tume remember to wear fire-
retardant and light-colored
or reflective clothing; avoid
masks that limit a child's
vision.
Remember to inspect all
candies and goodies
received and remove any
choking hazards for small


children.
Motorists should drive
carefully watching for all
pedestrians.
Drive slowly through
neighborhoods, and be pre-
pared to stop suddenly.
Watch for children cross-
ing the street. They may not
be paying attention to traffic
and cross the street mid-
block or between parked
cars.
Carefully enter and exit
driveways and alleys.
Turn on your headlights
to make yourself more visi-
ble - even in the daylight.
"The festivities of the hol-
iday can create great excite-
ment for children, it's our
job as parents to supervise
all of their activities," Sheriff
Grady Judd said.
For more information on
Halloween Safety, contact
the PCSO Crime Prevention
Section at 534-6677.

FWC Expands RSS Offerings


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is mak-
ing greater use of those little,
orange rectangles seen on
many Web sites to provide
customized delivery of news
and information over the
Internet.
Since 2005, the FWC has
used a technology called
Really Simple Syndication -
commonly known as RSS -
to alert interested parties
when news releases are pub-
lished on its website at
MyFWC.com.
Websites commonly use
the orange rectangle with
the letters "RSS" to denote
pages using this increasingly
common service. In recent
weeks, the FWC has doubled
its offering of "channels" or
"feeds" to deliver various
categories of news releases
via RSS.
For more about RSS,
including a list of the FWC's


feeds, go to the site at
MyFWC.com/RSS.html.
"Our first feeds covered
topics like hunting, fishing,
law enforcement and
wildlife," said Scott Ball, web
editor with the FWC's com-
munity relations office.
"As RSS became more
common, we added chan-
nels for news from our
Tallahassee headquarters
and each of our five admin-
istrative regions as well as
the Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute."
Users wishing to receive
RSS feeds from the FWC will
need an RSS reader on their
computers. There are
numerous readers available
online; most are free, and
installation is relatively easy.
"Once you have a reader
installed, go to
MyFWC.com/RSS.html to
sign up for as many feeds as
you wish," Ball said.

In addition to news
releases, the FWC now offers
an RSS feed for those who
wish to offer their opinions
on emerging issues at the
FWC.
"Public participation in
the agency's decision-mak-
ing process is a high priori-
ty," Ball said.
"Our site features a page
that lists numerous online
surveys and other opportu-
nities for people to com-
ment on proposed rules and

calling for public input. That
page now includes an RSS

team, has continued helping

ments.

the Tampa Twisters. After a
10-0 lead in the first four
innings, the coach put in his
other pitcher Caitlyn
Ostrander to finish the
game. The Storm finished
that game 11-0.

game the Storm faced the
Lady Boltz. Starting pitcher
was Hailey Pack, who strug-
gled on the mound due to a
sore ankle.
Lanier was brought in
with the bases loaded in the
first inning with the score 3-
3. She struck out the next
two batters and the third
was out by a short blooper
caught by Lanier.
Then she struck but four
of the next six batters as the
Storm beat that teaml0-3.
Going into the last game
on Saturday, the Storm faced
the Plant City Riptide, giving
the mound to Ostrander. She
held her own for the first
three innings as the Storm
went up 5-3, then Lanier was
brought in to finish the
game.
The Riptide was hitless for
the next two innings with
the Storm winning 5-3.
The Sebring Storm. was
the first seed on Sunday as
the started out playing the
Riptide with Lanier on the
mound. The Storm made
quick work of them, beating
them 11-1.
Lanier hit a home run in
that game over center field
with the Plant City Sizzlers
watching, who would face


the Storm in the champi-
onship. The Riptide only had
two hits off Lanier.
Going into the champi-
onship game, the Storm took
the field after winning the
toss. They showed no mercy
and took the sizzle out of the
Plant City Sizzlers.
The Sizzlers tried to rattle
Lanier at her first at bat,
going inside with the pitch
in the first inning, and hit
her in the arm.
Back at the mound,
Lanier shook it off and took
it to the Sizzlers, shutting
them down completely as
the Storm mercy-run-ruled
them after five innings, win-
ning 8-0.
Lanier pitched in 19
innings all weekend for the
Storm. The opponents man-
aged to score one run off
Melissa with only three hits
total for the weekend. She
also struck out 32 batters.
Lanier has had back to back
to back wins in tournaments
- two with the Storm and
one with her regular team,
the Intimidators.

Locals Raising Money

For Israeli Ambulance


The , Tampa Bay
Committee To Bless Israel
(TCBI) and The Lakeland
Committee to Bless Israel
(LCBI), its sister organiza-
tion, are teaming together in
an effort to provide a much
needed ambulance for
Israel.
The result of much delib-
eration about how to raise
the needed $120,000 has led
to the formation of a week-
end of fundraising efforts
between the two cities
(www.BlessIsraelTampaBay.
com).
The Tampa Bay
Committee to Bless Israel
(TCBI) is hosting "A Gala
Event To Bless Israel" on
Saturday, Nov. 17, at
Bayanihan, Art Center, 14301
Nine Eagles Drive in Tampa,
near Oldsmar
(www.BayanihanArtsCenter.
org).
The semi-formal event
will include live performers,
such as acclaimed violinist
Maurice Sklar, who played
the theme music for the
1993 Steven Speilberg film
Schindler's List, and inter-
nationally known musician,
PaulWilbur.
In addition to the musi-
cians, there will be a dance
processional by Kol Simcha,
a Florida-based Israeli-
dance team, led by Rabbi
Tony Arroyo, an acclaimed
Israeli-dance instructor.
Special speakers will
include Consul General Of
Israel in Miami Ofer Bavly;
Dr. Norman Gross, presi-
dent of Primer, an organiza-
tion that is a watchdog
against anti-Semitism in the
news; Robert Schwartz of
American Friends of Magen
David Adom (ARMDI); and
Pastor Joe Van Koevering of
God's News Behind the


News.
Israeli hors d'oeuvres are
included as part of the $25
ticket price, and there will
be many other opportuni-
ties to donate.
The preceding night,
Lakeland's First Baptist
Church At The Mall, 1010
East Memorial Blvd., is host-
ing a special Shabbat service
with acclaimed violinist
Maurice Sklar, and interna-
tionally known musician,
Paul Wilbur.
Also speaking will be Dr.
Norman Gross, president of
Primer, and Robert
Schwartz of American
Friends of Magen David
Adom (ARMDI).
Seating is on a "first-
come, first-served" basis. As
always, no admission is
being charged for the
Shabbat service, which
begins at 7:30 and ends
around 11 p.m., but a dona-
tion of $25 is recommended.
All proceeds will go to
Mogen David Adom, a
group that builds ambu-
lances for Israel.
The goal is to raise
$120,000 to buy a cardio
unit ambulance for use in
Israel; all proceeds from this
event will go to the ARMDI.
The tickets for Tampa's
"Gala Event To Bless Israel"
are $25 each, with discounts
available for groups of 15 or
more. Sponsorships are
available from $500 to
$5,000. The larger amount,
$5,000, will place the
donor's name on the ambu-
lance.

group rates, or get more

event or how your organiza-
tion can become involved,

i Forgiveness


Do not judge others, and God will not judge you; do not condemn others, and God will not
condemn you; forgive others, and God will forgive you (Luke 6:37). There are many verses in the
Bible like this one that tell us that we should forgive those who have offended or insulted us in
one way or another. Often, relationships between families and friends have been destroyed
because of the hardening of the heart and the refusal to forgive others for something that they
may have said or done. Because we are close to our loved ones, we may feel that we can say
things to them that we would never say to others. Although the spirit of forgiveness is not always
easy, forgiveness is usually more important to those who have been offended than to those who
have caused the offense.


Quite often, a person may not even
realize that they have said or done
something that disturbs us, and
frequently a person's words or
actions may simply be
misinterpreted. Forgiving others as
God forgives us is necessary
in order to live our lives as our
Heavenly Father requires.
Forbearing one another, and
forgiving one another, if any Man
have a quarrel against any: even as
Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

Author Don Miguel Ruiz at

Lakeland Center Friday


Unity-In-The-Grove of
Lakeland will sponsor an
evening with Don Miguel
Ruiz, author and teacher of
personal transformation
through Toltec wisdom, on
Friday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m., in
Youkey Theatre at the
Lakeland Center.
Ruiz was raised in
Mexico, born of a curendera
mother, and heir to the
Eagle Knight lineage of
ancient Toltec tradition. He
studied medicine at the
University of Mexico, and
subsequently began a career
in neurosurgery.
His interest in the causes
of symptomatic illnesses of


body and mind later
prompted him to leave
medicine and begin study-
ing with his mother, Sarita
Vasquez, a healer in San
Diego.
His exploration of the
human condition continued
as he followed his ancestral
heritage to the ancient city
of Teotihuacan, Mexico,
where in 1992, he took on
the work of awakening the
dream of the Toltec Masters.
Ruiz teaches dreaming at
the Center for Toltec
Wisdom in Las Vegas, and
appears with his sons in
select public lectures.

Fright and Delight This Halloween


October 24, 2007 The Polk County Democrat


From ARA Content


Halloween is a season
that brings jack-o-lanterns
to front porches and spi-
ders, super heroes and
princesses to the streets.
This year add to the ghoul-
ish atmosphere with a few
safe and healthy tricks that
will make your book of
spells the most popular on
the block.

Lanterns Lead the 'Spooky'
Way:
. Safety comes first on
Halloween when you are
welcoming trick-or-treaters
to your haunted mansion.
Always maintain a well-lit
area to prevent accidents
and to monitor ghosts and
goblins as they approach.
Use pumpkin-inspired
paper lanterns to do the
trick. Have the kids draw
jack-o-lanterns on paper
lunch bags, cut out the.eyes,
nose and mouth and add
several inches of sand to the
bottom of each bag. Place a
small votive candle in a
glass jar, position on the
sand and light for an eerie
trick-or-treat experience.

Fright Light:
Whether your costume is
scary or sweet, always wear
lightweight and lightly col-
ored clothing and remem-
ber to carry a flashlight to
navigate through the dark
night. Try adding a recog-
nizable patch or reflector to
a child's costume to make
sure they are easily spotted.


"Boo" in Your Basket:
According to the National
Confectioners Association
(www.CandyUSA.org), 93
percent of children go
"trick-or-treating," making
candy the focus of the door-
to-door Halloween ritual. So
why not give some special
attention to the way you'
pass out your candy selec-
tion? Make your treat bowl
the most memorable in the
neighborhood and give it a
costume of its own.
Decorate your treat basket
with a witch's broom and
hat or create a ghostly sil-
houette with a white cloth
covering a round table.
Costumes are no longer just
for kids.

Gummy Mummy:.
Choosing which candy to
pass out is a tough decision.
NCA surveys reveal that
kids' favorite treats are
candy and gum. Give trick-
or-treaters what they want
this year and fill your bowl
with Life Savers Halloween
Gummies. Kids love them
for their adventurous fla-
vors and gummy texture
and parents like the lower
calorie, fat-free treat option.
You can also use gummies
to top seasonal cupcakes,
cookies and cakes.

Carry in Style:
Making a one-of-a-kind
trick-or-treating bag with
inexpensive materials is a
fun way to involve kids in


Halloween preparation.
Grab an old pillowcase or
bag and let kids decorate it
to match their costume or
favorite Halloween creature.
Adding design is easy with
fabric paints, ribbon andi
buttons.

Cook before they Collect:
In addition to choosing a
guilt-free treat for trick-or-
treaters cook a wholesome
meal before sending your
goblins and ghosts into the
night.
Serve a Halloween
themed meal like grilled
cheese sandwiches cut into
tombstone shapes with an
enchanted forest of broc-
coli. Add "Boo" and "R.I.P"
in ketchup to make them
smile.
Sending your trick-or-
treaters out on a full stom-
ach will prevent them from
over eating their Halloween
goodies.

Chew Gum:
After the kids sample
their basket treats, suggest
they chew gum. According
to the American Dental
Association (ADA), chewing
sugar-free gum, like Eclipse,
Orbit or Extra, helps reduce
tooth decay. Let the kids
indulge a little during the
special holiday, but don't
forget the importance of
oral hygiene and brushing
and flossing your teeth
before bed and after every
meal. They'll need those
fangs again next year. (ARA)

Creating New Worlds


A Book's Look


This year, Children's
&)� Book Week is celebrated
Nov. 12 through 18.
The theme is "Rise Up
Reading!"
- The Mini Page cele-
brates with a story about picture
books and some of the illustrators who
changed the way we look at kids' books.
The Mini Page talked with an
expert at The Eric Carle Museum of
Picture Book Art about the history of
children's book illustrators.
A look through history
Artists have been r
illustrating books for s
hundreds of years. I _
Before the printing rs I t
press was invented in I SN: sW01
about 1440, religious.
people such as monks and nuns copied
books by hand. They painted detailed
pictures along the sides of the text.
These books were called illuminated
(ih-LOO-muh-na-ted) manuscripts
because people thought the decorative
art looked like it was lighted.
Because these books took so long to
make, they were very expensive. Only
rich people or churches and other
groups could afford them.
In the late 1600s, attitudes about
education began to change. Pictures
became an important part of children's
books. People realized that children
learned better if there were pictures
along with words.


The Caldecott Medal shows an illustration
from one of Randolph Caldecott's most
famous children's books, "The Diverting
History of John Gilpin." This book, pub-
lished in 1878, is a funny story about a
bridegroom who wants to get to his wed-
ding, but his horse has other ideas.

Books for kids
Later, in the mid-1700s, John
Newbery began publishing books for
children. They were designed to be
enjoyable along with giving instruc-
tion. (Today, the John Newbery Medal
is given to the author of the most out-
standing children's book.)
Randolph Caldecott (1846-1886)
changed the way illustrations were
used. In his books, illustrations
weren't put in just to be pretty. They
were as important as words in telling
the story.
The top prize for illustrators of chil-
dren's books, the Caldecott Medal, was
later named after him.
Another artist in Caldecott's time,
Kate Greenaway (1846-1901), also
changed books for kids.


"The Pied Piper of Hamelin" is one exam-
ple of Kate Greenaway's illustrations. She
painted watercolors that were printed with
wooden blocks.
A British printer, Edmund Evans,
promoted the new kinds of children's
books. He strongly encouraged
Caldecott, Greenaway and another
artist, Walter Crane, to illustrate the
affordable children's books he was
publishing.
Arthur
Rackham's
(1867-1939)'
' = illustrations of
imaginary
worlds were
printed in
beautiful gift
books. One
example was
"The Legend
ff-Fc N -0t - of Sleepy
- LI '.F I- lf !f. . .)V ? Hollow" by
- Washington
Irving.

Meet Illustrator


Eric Carle is best known for his
picture books using collage (kuh-
LAZH). A collage is an artwork
made from pieces of materials glued
onto paper or other material.
He said he chooses this unusual
method of creating because "I like
the process of making something
whole out of smaller pieces. I like
the free, loose feeling of collage."
He founded The Eric Carle Museum
of Picture Book Art in Amherst,
Mass., after he and his wife, Barbara,
visited Japan-and discovered many
museums dedicated to picture book
art. They wondered why the United
States had none.
He said, "I've noticed this about
picture book artists, that the interest
and inspiration started for many at
an early age."
He and his wife wanted to "open
the door for our children to the arts."


jacket art � 1969 by Eric Carle, pub-
lished by Phlromel


Eric Carle's
best-known
book is
"The Very
Hungry
Caterpillar,"
a book for
young kids.


SEri
Eric Carle
paints tis-
sue paper,
cuts and
tears the
paper and
creates his
pictures
with the
pieces of
paper.


Childhood
Eric Carle was born in Syracuse,
N.Y., in 1929. His parents were
German immigrants, and when he
was 6, the family moved back to
Germany. He and his father used to
walk in the German woods.
Most of Eric's books are about
nature. He said: "My father loved
animals, and it was from him that I
inherited a love of all kinds of crea-
tures. He used to take me on walks
in nature and would peel back the
bark of a tree to reveal the tiny
insects that lived underneath."
He said he has always loved art.
"Ever since I was quite young, I
loved to draw and knew that I want-
ed to someday be an artist."
When he grew up, he returned to
America to live.


C


Carle


His work
When Eric returned to New York,
he worked as a graphic designer.
Later he worked as the art director
of an advertising agency.
One day an author, Bill Martin Jr,
asked Eric to illustrate a story he had
written. He had seen Eric's art in his
ads and loved it. Eric illustrated his
first book with Bill Martin, "Brown
Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?"
Eric said sometimes it takes years
to form an idea for a book. Once the
idea has been completely worked
out, he illustrates and writes it for
many days until it is finished.
Advice to kids
"Be kind. Work hard. Follow your
instincts and listen to your inner voice."
SEric Carle and
Bill Martin Jr
" ; " worked togeth-
er on a sequel
to their first
book. Their lat-
est book is
"Baby Bear,
Baby Bear,
What Do You
See?"

More About Illustrators


A growing trend
Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) wrote
and illustrated 23 "little books" that
kids could hold in their hands. Her
fun tales and charming illustrations
are still loved by kids today.
In 1893,
.. Beatrix Potter
wrote one of
-- "- the world's
. " most popular
.6 books, "The
Tale of Peter

The change in children's picture
books began in England and quickly
spread to the United States. Illustrators
such as Howard Pyle and N.C. Wyeth
began illustrating American children's
books with colorful art. They also
illustrated magazine stories.
Howard Pyle (1853-1911) is best
known for illustrating and writing
books such as "The Merry
Adventures of Robin Hood."
N.C. Wyeth (1882-1945) was a stu-
dent of Pyle's. He illustrated more
than 100 books, including "Robinson
Crusoe" and "Treasure Island."

More milestones
In the 1940s and 1950s, during
and after World War II, many chil-
dren's book publishers had to
cut back on color printing because
of the cost.
"Make Way for

was planned
as a full-color
book, but
because of
World War II,
the publishers
