s Vapors from Agri-Chem



Plant Prompt Complaints


Bartow police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at RadioShack in
Bartow late Tuesday morning. Further information will be published as it becomes
available. - Staff photo



New School Named


After Spessard Holland


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher
An ammonia-like vapor
released from an acidic
pond at the closed USS
Agri-Chemicals phosphate
plant on State Road 60
west of Bartow prompted
several calls to the Bartow
Fire Dept. from residents
of Highland Lakes Estates
about 6 o'clock Monday
night.
Firefighters said the
vapor did not produce any'
apparent injuries.
Lt. Gary Elliott said that
when he arrived at the
subdivision, located
northeast of the USS plant,
he detected an ammonia
smell, but that it was not
strong enough to produce
tears or difficulty breath-
ing.
Suspecting that the
vapors were coming from
the old phosphate pro-
cessing plant, firefighters
met with Mark Miller of
USS Agri-Chemicals at the
plant. He told them that a


lime slurry was being
pumped into an acidic
water holding pond to
change the pH.
The process produces
an ammonia vapor, which
was carried into Highland
Lakes by a wind coming
from the southwest, Elliott
said.
At Elliott's request,
Miller stopped pumping
the lime slurry into the
pond.
Firefighters received
another call from
Highland Lakes a short
time later, and dispatched
another unit, as well as a
county ambulance.
Responders to that call
reported that they could
not find anyone suffering
from ammonia inhalation.
Firefighters remained
on the call for about an
hour.
The vapors were
released as part of the clo-
sure activities at the plant,
which was closed down in
2005, according to Denver
Phares, managing director


of closure activities for
USS Agri-Chemicals. No
ammonia has been stored
there since then, he said.
The company has been
treating the process water
stored on the plant
grounds for about three
months. The problem
Monday night probably
was caused by a shift in
wind direction, Phares
said.
"It's an odor from the
treatment system that's
just part of the process.
"We have been working
with the Florida Dept. of
Environmental Protection
to eliminate contaminants
in the water as part of the
plant closure process.
"We shut the system
down and we're looking at
ways to be able to, treat our
water and eliminate any
concerns to the public.
We'll watch wind direction
and treat water when the
drift won't be toward resi-
dents."


One of Bartow's most
famous native sons finally
will have a Polk County
school named after him.
The committee for
naming the new elemen-
tary school to be built on
E.E Griffin Road in Bartow
told the Polk County
School Board at a work-
shop session last week
that they had decided
upon Spessard L. Holland
Elementary School.
The second and third
choices were Fort Fraser
and James A. Van Fleet,


respectively.
Holland was born on
July 10, 1892, and became
a successful Florida politi-
cian, never losing an elec-
tion.
After serving in World
War I and working as a
lawyer and judge, Holland
first became involved in
politics in the Florida
Senate in 1932, serving
eight years. He was elected
governor during World
War II and served from
1941 to 1945.
While governor, he


worked to increase $tate
defenses and the number
of military bases in
Florida. He also proposed
the amendment for the
creation of the Game and
Fresh Water Commission
and set the groundwork
,for the designation of
Everglades National Park.
After finishing his term
as governor, he ran for the
U.S. Senate, where he
served from 1946 to 1971.
As senator; he sponsored
the 23rd Amendment to
the U.S. Constitution,
which prohibited the poll
tax. After choosing not to
run for reelection, he
retired to Bartow where he
died at age 79 on Nov. 6,
1971.
Other facilities named
after Holland include the
Spessard L. Holland Law
Center at the University of
Florida Law School, the
Holland Building in
Tallahassee, and the
Spessard Holland Golf
Course, Park, and
Community Center in
Melbourne Beach. A
Spessard L. Holland
Elementary School
already exists in Satellite
Beach. A bridge over Peace
River and U.S. Highway 17
in Polk County also are
named for him.
The new school will be
the first facility named
after Holland in Polk
County. Construction will
begin' next year, with the
school planned to open in
2009.


Bartow firefighters responded to a Ford Ranger truck fire in the parking lot between
Aaron's and Goodyear at 12:56 p.m. on Monday. The owner, Thomas Schuler, said he
had been having some mechanical problems before the vehicle caught fire, Deputy
Chief Bobby Pitman reported. According to firefighters on the scene, the fire appeared
to have started in the engine compartment and moved to the interior of the vehicle.
The truck was totaled by the fire. - Photo provided by Bobby Pitman


Johnson Is New BoCC Chairman


As expected, Polk County Commis-
sioner Sam Johnson, District 5, was elect-
ed to the post of chairman of the com-
mission on Tuesday.
In an unexpected turn, however,
Commissioner Jean Reed, District 3, was
not the first candidate named for the post
of vice chairman.
Most years, the chairman and vice
chairman are elected on a rotating basis
and this year would have been the turns
for Mrs. Reed and Johnson, but Bob


English made a motion to name Jack
Myers vice chairman.
"I'm kind of surprised by this motion,"
Commissioner Randy Wilkinson said.
English said he made to motion to
begin next year with a "clean slate," since,
because of term limits, Myers would be
unable to serve as chairman or on the
commission at all after the election.
The motion died for lack of a second,
and Mrs. Reed was unanimously named
to the vice chairman post.

Little Kitten Tests 91


By KATHY LEIGH
BERKOWITZ
Staff Writer

Not long ago, Ed Wall, a
professional golfer who
lives on Walk-In-Water
Road in Lake Wales,
received a courtesy call
from Polk County 911 dis-
patchers.
On a Sunday evening he
noticed his phone was off
the hook, and saw that his
cat, Sammy, was sitting on
top of the device.
He set the phone back
on the receiver only to
have to pick it up again
immediately.
"This is 911, what is
your emergency?" dis-
patchers on the other end
asked.
While explaining to
them that he thought his
cat may have called them,
dispatchers said, "Mr. Wall
are you married?"
, And they asked to speak


with his wife.
Once the Mrs. got on
the phone she informed
them there was no emer-
gency at and that they
believed Sammy made the
call accidentally.
A few minutes later,
deputies from the Polk
County Sheriff's
Department pulled up into
their driveway, saying "Mr.
Wall, is everything all right
out here?" and the couple
explained that their cat
dialed 911.
Walls said he was
impressed with the emer-
gency response system
and the efficiency of the
sheriff's department.
He said the system
worked well, adding that if
someone had shot him
and was trying to force his
wife to tell 911 everything
was all right, the quick
response of the deputies
might have prevented a
life or death situation.

1 System
"Had there been no fol-
low-up, who knows what
might have happened?" he
said.
Nonetheless, it is still a
mystery to all as to how
Sammy dialed 911.
Sammy had a rough
birth, Wall said, and has
suffered respiratory prob-
lems.
His veterinarian, Dr.
Lori Shank of Lake Wales
Veterinarian Hospital, was
asked if she had ever heard
of felines making 911 calls,
-to which she replied, "No,
not really, but he's obvi-
ously a pretty special and
talented little guy."
Simply a mishap,
maybe, but the tiny one-
and-a-half pound kitten
serves to prove the system
still works and is busy sav-
ing lives.

Wales News.

AN OPENING RECEPTION for "Robert Stackhouse: Swimmers and Floaters" will be
held Friday, Nov. 30, at Polk Museum of Art. - (Museum photo)


Robert StackHouse Exhibition Planned


An opening reception
for the exhibition "Robert
Stackhouse: Swimmers
and Floaters" will be held
Friday, Nov. 30, at Polk
Museum of Art.
Stackhouse will attend
and will speak about his
work at 6 p.m. The recep-
tion will follow at 7 p.m.
The lecture and recep-
tion are free for museum
members and $10 for non-
members.
"Robert Stackhouse is
the most widely respected
visual artist to have called
Polk County home," said
Todd Behrens, curator of


art. "His work is full of
amazing technical skill, so
you can appreciate it on
that level, but it also
reveals the story of how
childhood experiences can
shape our lives and the
way we define and under-
stand ourselves.
Stackhouse has taken his
experiences on the lakes of
Polk County into the realm
of fine art."
"Swimmers and
Floaters" refers to the
snakes and boats featured
in much of Stackhouse's
work, both of which
embedded themselves in


his consciousness during
his teen years on Lake
Juliana in Auburndale.
This 30-year retrospec-
tive will be on display Dec.
1 through March 2.
"Robert Stackhouse:
Swimmers and Floaters" is
sponsored by ASC
Geosciences with addi-
tional support from a
grant from the National
Endowment for the Arts.

Phone Number Conservation

Measures Are Showing Results


A series of telephone
number conservation
measures implemented by
the Florida Public Service
Commission (PSC) contin-
ue to show positive results.
Since 1999, conserva-
tion initiatives have result-
ed in more than 18.2 mil-
lion fewer numbers issued
to carriers, saving con-
sumers from the expense
and inconvenience of
changing area codes.
The PSC initiated num-
ber pooling, allowing
phone numbers to be allo-
cated to service providers
in blocks of 1,000, instead
of 10,000 numbers. In
addition, the PSC took
back unused number
blocks from carriers who


did not assign them to cus-
tomers.
Based on a recently-
completed analysis of area
code exhaust dates for the
United States, the project-
ed exhaust dates for all of
Florida's area codes have
been extended from three
months to 2.5 years.
The number of Florida
area codes has expanded
from 4 in 1994 (305, 407,
813 and 904) to 17 today,
due to population growth
and the increased use of
cell phones and dial-up
Internet services.
The local 863 area code
now has an exhaust date of
2025.
The 850 area code,
which has a projected


exhaust date in late 2011,
will be the next area
requiring relief.
The PSC will start relief
plans for this area in late
2008, 36 months prior to
the projected exhaust
date.
The PSC has approved
relief plans for the 305 and
407/321 area codes pro-
jected to exhaust in 2010.
Area code 786 will over-
lay the Florida Keys, now
served by area code 305,
and area code 689 will
overlay the area served by
the 407/321 area codes.

tion, visit the website

Friendships are being jeopard-

Sarcasm is replacing discourse.
In some ways, Bartow isn't
quite as nice a place to live in as it
used to be, and not because of
the size of houses or building
lots.
It doesn't have to be this way.
Several developers have sat
down with neighbors to hear
their concerns, and have modi-

those concerns. And from what
we hear, their homes are selling
just as rapidly as the starter
homes.
Yes, it takes more work to listen
to the community than it does to
wave Bartow's flawed compre-
hensive plan and declare that it
allows whatever the developer
wants to build.


It takes more finesse than
going to court.
Civility takes effort, and a will-
ingness by all parties to be cour-
teous and to seek consensus, or
at least compromise.
But in the end, it's worth the
effort.
George A. Long will become
Bartow's city manager on Jan. 7.
One of the things that most
impressed us in his employment
interview with the city commis-
sion was his appreciation for
"getting it right" when it comes to
charting the city's growth.
As the new guy on the block,
we hope he can not only get it
right, but also restore civility to
the process.
We don't want Bartow to
become a Shangri-La where peo-
ple don't like each other.

Why Bartow Is Special


BARTOW - Tuesday
evening as I was walking
my dog, Scooter, Fire
Engine No. 3, manned by
Firemen Robertson and
Bennett, was returning, to
the station from a run.
There was a lady with a
small child whose truck


was broken down at
Church Street and Oak
Avenue.
Those men could have
continued to the station
but instead made the
block and pulled behind
the broken truck to lend
any assistance they could.


I'm constantly
impressed by the home-
town assistance the city
firefighters seem to render
whenever they can. Chief
Robinson can be proud of
all his people.

OUR READERS SAY

More Is Involved Than Money


SANTA ROSA BEACH -
Being a past resident
(Summerlin Class of 65), a
past business owner
(Nelson Pennington
Locksmith, Inc.), a past
member of the Bartow
Lions Club, and just being
a bona fide Bartowan by
my feelings for the town, it
is with sadness that I read
about the problems the
town is experiencing.
Despite the old adage,
"There is nothing constant
but change," I can't believe.
that the people of Bartow
would even consider the


demise of the Bartow
Police Dept. It seems that
just about everything
these days come down to
the all mighty dollar.
I won't argue about the
savings of money, but that
when Sheriff Judd is finally.
no longer the sheriff,
Bartow would be in the
hands of someone who
could pull the rug right out
from under them, or at
worse, demand more
money than the city could
afford.
It seems that annexa-
tion is really the cause of


this. If the commissioners
had not wanted to add to
the area of the Bartow city
limits, you all would not be
even discussing this. But,
with the damage done, I
pray that whatever is
decided will be the best for
Bartow, and for all its citi-
zens.
Good luck, Bartow. May
the decisions of your com-
mission be for the good of
the people, not for the
good of the wallet.

"Put Carlos on the table,"
said the vet, a young man of
about 30 known as Dr. Bud.
Carlos was my cat, a stray
calico I'd adopted and
named after the writer,
Carlos Castaneda. As I held
him out toward the metal
table, he hissed and tried to
scratch me.
When his feet touched the
tabletop his back went up
and he glowered at the vet as
if to say, "Keep your
&%@+%& hands off me!"
This was Carlos's second.
trip to the vet. On his first
visit he'd gotten a shot. He'd
hardly seemed to notice the
shot once the needle was in,
but getting him to sit still
long enough to take it had
been the trick. The vet had
applied a procedure he
called "the cat and the iron
claw."
Carlos had taken up in my
garage and had been living
there about a month. After
tom-catting all night one
night, he came limping in
just after daylight one morn-
ing looking like he'd had a
fine night.
His left ear was chewed
up and a chunk had been
bitten out of his hind leg and
his fur was matted and
bloody.
"Was it worth it?" I asked
him.
He seemed to grin. Then
he glared at me a moment,
and hobbled over behind the
lawn mower and lay down,
ignoring his bowl of cat food.
1 figured he might need a
tetanus shot, or whatever
kind of shots cats got after.
such romps, so that after-
noon I took him to the vet, a


young man who asked to be
called Bud.
"Put him on the table," Dr.
Bud said.
Carlos hissed and
scratched at me when I set
him down on the metal
tabletop.
"He's scared," I said.
Dr. Bud nodded. He
scratched the top of Carlos's
head with one finger, then
dragged his fingertips over
the patches of black, orange,
and white fur on his side. His
hands seemed incongruous-
ly gentle considering the
strength and power they
seemed to possess.
Carlos closed his eyes and
purred; but moments later,
when the vet produced a
syringe, he sprang to his feet
and his back went up making
an arch. He hissed through
bared teeth and he looked
very angry and mean.
"There now," said the vet
soothingly. "This won't hurt.
You won't even know it. A
mosquito bite hurts worse.
You went through the painful
part last night at the party.
Nice kitty."
As he spoke he began to
tickle Carlos's chin with one
finger and almost instantly,
Carlos closed his eyes and
began to purr again.
Dr. Bud put his hand gen-
tly over Carlos's shoulder to
hold him down so he could
administer the shot.
Immediately Carlos began to
struggle.
Dr. Bud eased the pres-
sure, stroked his chin until
he relaxed, and then again
applied pressure. lie repeat
ed this process several times.
"Dr. Bud, why don't you


just hold him down and
shoot him?" I asked.
He laughed. "I tried it
once and discovered fast that
I'd need an iron claw with an
arm wrap up to my shoulder
t6 do that. The harder you try
to hold a cat down, the hard-
er he's going to struggle, and
somebody's going to get
hurt, and it very well might
be me.
"Cats don't like being
strong-armed. They'll coop-
erate and take their medi-
cine, but you have to make
them think it's their decision
to do it."
"Hmmm," I thought.
That was many years ago,
but I've always remembered
Dr. Bud's lesson of the cat
and the iron claw and I'm
convinced it works with kids
as well as cats.
I work with teenagers. In
my position, as in most posi-
tions where one is responsi-
ble for children, it's impera-
tive to keep the reins tight.
However I've learned that
if I hold them too tightly, if I
don't allow a little wriggle
room for them to breathe
and believe they're at least
partially in control of their
long days in my lustrous
presence, I'd wish I had an
iron claw with an arm wrap
up to my chin because the
spitting and hissing would
be fierce and I'd be scratched
and bloody on a daily basis.

The Anchormen

The Anchormen to Appear in Fort Meade


The Anchormen will
perform in concert at First
United Methodist Church
of Fort Meade on Saturday,
Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.
The quartet is based in
Goldsboro, N.C.
Growing up near
Mayberry, N.C., Keith
Casstevens cut his teeth
listening to southern
gospel music. After joining
his first quartet at 12 years
old, Casstevens says, he
realized it would have to
be a part of his life forever.
He is married and has
three children.
Karl Rice, tenor, from
Charleston, S.C., started
singing with his dad at 10
years old. He was raised in
and around gospel music
all his life. Along with
singing, he plays the har-
monica and serves as
emcee. At 22 years old, he
is the youngest member of
the quartet.
Spartanburg, S.C. native
Robbie Norwood brings a
lifetime of experience to
the group. During his high
school years, he was in the
SC Baptist Allstate Choir,
which later led him to the
SC Allstate Chorus with
several national perform-
ances, including New York
City's Carnegie Hall and
many cruise ships.


Bass singer Jon Hall, a
preacher's kid and native
of Elon, N.C., started in
gospel music playing bass
guitar as a teenager. Hall
and his brothers formed
their own quartet shortly
after, traveling and singing
for several years on a
weekend basis. When he
isn't singing, he enjoys
hunting and fishing.
The Anchormen per-
form 200-plus dates per
year in all varieties of
major events, from con-
cert halls, cruises, church-
es, arenas, festivals, fairs,
theme parks, and interna-
tional venues.
The group makes an
annual appearance at the
National Quartet
Convention in Louisville,
and has appeared at the


"Grand Ole Opry" in
Nashville. Their last 15
radio singles have been in
the national top 20 charts,
and they are one of four
Southern gospel music
artists invited to perform
at Country Music's Fan
Fair in Nashville.
They have been fea-
tured guests on the
National Public Radio
Network, have received
national television expo-
sure on The Nashville
Network, Christian
Broadcast - Network,
Inspirational Network,

and Trinity Broadcast

Time to Get Moving


Let's Dance!


Do you like to dance? Some kids
dance as part of physical education at
school. Some take lessons in a particu-
lar kind of dance. Most of us love to
dance at home with our families.
Moving around to music can lift your
spirits and put a smile on your face. It's
also good for you - it's a fun kind of
exercise.
What is dance?
Dance is the movement of the body
in a rhythmic, or regular and repeat-
ing, way. Dancing is usually done to
music, which gives us a beat and a
tempo, or speed.
Animal dance
It's not only
humans who
dance. Many
animals per- ,
form dances wi
to attract
mates. For
example, 4 .
some spi-
ders wave their legs to attract mates. A
male prairie chicken, above, and many
other birds will show their feathers proudly
and prance for the females.


Dance before words
In a way, you danced before you could
walk or talk. Experts think movement is
one of our first ways of communicating
without words.
When you were a baby and you moved
your arms and
legs around, you
were sort of
dancing. You
were exploring, /, )
learning and
communicating
with others by
moving.


These kids in Covington,
Ky., are making rhythm
and patterns with their
feet. They are learning
W" clogging steps.
" - Clogging is related to tap
Dancing. It developed in
the mid-1800s in the
southeastern United
States.


Moving toward learning
Many experts believe that people
learn better through kinesthetic (kin-
es-THET-ic), or movement, education.
For some kids, this type of learning
works better than just reading a book
or listening to a teacher.
For instance, one dance teacher in
Rhode Island worked with English and
history teachers to develop a unit
about the Holocaust during World War
II. The kids researched the subject.
Then they each choreographed
(KOR-e-uh-grafd), or designed, a dance
to share what they had learned.

More About Dance


These kids are doing a
Greek dance with mem-
bers of their church.
Many kids are getting
involved with world
dancing, or folk dancing.
One popular dance now
is Irish step dancing.
Kids might also learn
other traditional dances
of their ancestors.



More than fun
Human beings dance for many rea-
sons. In some cultures, people use dance
to communicate. For instance, in
Hawaii, hula means dance. These beau-
tiful dances tell stories and describe the
islands.
Some dances express religious beliefs.
Native Americans might dance for help
with the harvest or to pray for rain.
Many people dance to celebrate, such as
at weddings or family reunions. Through
dancing, they strengthen their connec-
tions to each other.
Dance can also be seen as a form of
art.


New types of dance
Have you heard of the show
"Stomp"? In this show, the performers
strap large metal oil drums to their
feet and use garbage can lids like
cymbals. They also use brooms to cre-
ate a swishing noise, lighters for
clicking noises, and a paper bag for a
crumpling noise.
The show was created in 1991 in
England. It combines percussion,
movement and comedy to entertain
the audience. Cast members also
involve the audience with clapping
rhythms.


Dance words to know
ballet: theatrical dancing; rules
were made in France around 1700.

tap: a syncopated (SINK-oh-
pated) dance in which the dancer
uses his or her shoes to
tap a rhythm on the
floor.

ballroom dances:
social dances usually
performed by couples.

clogging: from the Blue Ridge
Mountains; involves stomping and
tap steps with
the upper body
S held straight.

disco: a popu-
lar dance style
started in the 1970s; danced to elec-
tronic music with strong rhythms.

square dance: an American folk
dance with an even number of cou-
ples forming a square.

Meet Maria Sangiolo

Maria Sangiolo has recently released her
third CD for kids, "Under the Mystic Sea." She wrote
and recorded this music after seeing lessons about
the ocean from her daughter's third-grade class.
Maria said she wanted "to inspire children and
their families to find small ways that they can make
a difference for the planet in their own homes and
lives."
Maria grew up in Stoughton, Mass. She took violin
lessons in elementary and middle school. In high
school she took guitar and voice lessons. After college,
she sang in a group that performed during the Christmas season. She also began
writing and singing her own music.
Maria has also recorded four CDs of folk music for adults. She and her husband
and his brother own a restaurant in Pomfret, Conn., where musicians perform.

Let's Dance!
Mini Page activities meet many state and na nal educational standards Each wekwe identify tan-
dards that relate to The Mini Page' content and offer activities that wil help your students reach the
This week's standards:
* Students will execute original or existing artistic dance movement or works of art using elements and skills of
dance. (Dance: Performing)
* Students relate and transfer meanings, ideas and experiences from other disciplines and areas ofknowledge to
dance and movement experiences. (Dance: Inter-Connecting)
Activities:
1. Draw three large circles on a large piece of paper. In each circle, draw a dancer showing a specific type of
dance, such as ballet, folk dance, modern rock dance, or popular recreational dance. Label your pictures.
2. Look in your newspaper to find two places where you could take dance lessons. Find two places where you
could attend a dance performance. Write several sentences about the type of dance you would like to learn or
the type of dance performance you would like to see. --
3. Locate a news story that you find compelling. Enlist several friends to create a dance that tells the events of
the story using dance movement.
4. How can dance (a) improve your health, (b) make you feel happier, and (c) allow you to explore your artistic
side?
5. Use resource books and the Internet to learn more about a favorite dancer. You may select a classical ballet
dancer like Mikhail Baryshnikov, a Flamenco dancer like Jose Greco, a musical comedy dancer like Fred .
Astaire, or a modern rock singer-dancer like Madonna. Use these questions to guide your research: When did
the individual begin dancing? What type of formal or informal training did he/she receive? How did he/she
coordinate dance lessons with regular schooling? What did critics say about his/her dancing? Write a para-
graph discussing your findings.

Dancing for life
People who loved to dance as kids
often go on to find careers in dance. But
you don't have to be a famous ballerina
to have a job that involves dance.
"There's something for everybody who
loves dance," one expert told us.
For example, choreographers plan
dance movements. Researchers study
the benefits or history of dance. Teachers
help young kids and adults learn to be
better.dancers. Someone who wanted his
or her own business might
open a dance studio.
Newspaper reporters
might write
reviews
of dance per-
formances.
Many universities offer programs for
those who do want to dance profession-
ally.
Even people who go on to other
careers might continue to dance as a
hobby, for fitness and relaxation.

Developing Negative Thoughts About My Photographer


By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER

Every time I need a new
portrait taken, I shudder,
which is why I put it off as
long as I can.
Everything was going
fine along this line, and
then my new publisher
requested a new picture
for an upcoming book. .1
insisted on an old picture;
they insisted on a new pic-
ture.
I tried pointing out to
them that I had an old por-
trait of a newer face, which
I thought would be better
than a new picture of an
older face. This is exactly
what I do not like about
new portraits. The newer
the portrait the older the
face.
You would think with all
the advances in technolo-
gy, somebody could come
up with a camera that truly
captures the essence of a
person and not just the
appearance. Whoever said
"appearances are deceiv-
ing" must have been look-
ing at one of my portraits.
I want a camera that
shows the inner beauty of
the person and not the
outer shell that is deterio-
rating with time. A lot is
said about Mother Nature,
but it is Father Time that
has the last laugh with all
of-us.
The Gracious Mistress
of the Parsonage was no
help along this line.
Usually she is most help-
ful, but in this area she was
not the "help meet" I
desired.
"When," she persisted,
"are you going to get your
picture taken?"
I tried ignoring her and
pretended I was busy read-


ing a book.
Have you ever tried
ignoring your wife when
she is insistent upon your
attention? It is like pre-
tending that the mosquito
is not buzzing around your
ear. If you ignore it too
long, it will eventually bite
your ear.
Then I heard those
words that brought me
back to the state of reality,
where she is the governor.
"You are not ignoring me
are you?"
"What?" I stammered,
trying to look a little sur-
prised. "Oh no, this article
I am reading is quite fasci-
nating. I just didn't hear
what you were saying."
"What is the article
you're reading?"
You know you are
backed into a corner when
both walls come crashing
in on you. Then I had to
confess that I was, in fact,
ignoring her. It is a terrible
confession to make, for it
carries with it severe con-
sequences.
One of the hardest
things a husband has to do
is admit his wife is right.
However, harder than that
is admitting this to her
personally because he
knows she will never forget
it. It is like a feather in a
wife's war bonnet. My wife
has enough feathers for 17
war bonnets.
"I'm going to make an
appointment for you," she
said matter-of-factly, "and
you will go."
She put what I felt was
undue emphasis on the
phrase "you will go."
I did not, however, bring
this to her attention.
"What's said in the dark-
room should stay in the


darkroom," is what I
always say . . . but never
outside the darkroom.
The fateful day came for
my appointment and my
negative feelings toward
the photographer were
developing.
One of the things I do
not like about a photogra-
pher is one who smiles and
laughs a lot. I never know if
he is just being jovial or if
what he's looking at is
making him laugh. I think
taking a person's portrait is
a very serious matter and
should not be polluted
with a lot of laughter.
"Now," said the photog-
rapher after I had been
seated, "let's see if we can
find your good side."
It's not so much that he
said this, but he followed it
up with a very hearty
laugh. Too hearty if you ask
me.
I assumed this photog-
rapher was a professional,
but I confess it took him a
little longer than it should
have to find my good side.
Plus, he laughed too much
to please me. I really did
not get the joke.
He finally found what
he thought was my "good
side," and began fiddling
with the camera while his
assistant was adjusting the
lighting. I settled down
thinking that the worst of
this ordeal was behind me.
Finally, he seemed to
have the camera adjusted
to suit him. He looked at
me and then he began to
frown.
Although his smiling
and laughter irritated me,
this irritated me far more.
The more he looked at me,
the more he frowned. The
more he frowned, the


more aggravated I became.
"Come on," he said
rather sternly, "you can
smile better than that. Let
me see the biggest smile
you have."
I gritted my teeth and
slapped on the biggest
smile I could find within
me.
"Great; hold that smile.
Now tilt your head to the
right and hold it."
With that came a series
of light flashes and the
photographer said, "Great,
I got your picture."
Now that he had my
picture, he was after my
wallet. Not only must I
endure the strain of pos-
ing, 1 now have to pay a
king's ransom and believe
me, I am not Prince
Charming.
I took comfort in a Bible
verse, "But the Lord said
unto Samuel, Look not on
his countenance, or on the
height of his stature;
because 1 have refused
him: for the Lord seeth not
as man seeth; for man
looketh on the outward
appearance, but the Lord
looketh on the heart." (1
Samuel 16:7 KJV).
God sees me as I really
am - and loves me.

Reflections on Faith


Thank God For You


By ROGER CAMPBELL

Nine words of thanks-
giving written long ago
from a lonely Roman
prison cell might, if heed-
ed, break down most of the
barriers that divide fami-
lies, hinder the growth of
churches, and separate
friends.
Ten years earlier, Paul,
the apostle, who penned
these words, had visited
Philippi, introduced a few
there to his Lord, spent an
unusual night in their jail
and, upon being set free by
an earthquake that shook
the prison doors off their
hinges, started a church.
What are these nine life-
changing words?
"I thank my God upon
every remembrance of
you" (Philippians 1:3).
We're now nearing the
end of the season that
incubates attitudes of grat-
itude. Fields of golden
grain have been harvested,
colorful crops of fruit are
largely off, the trees or
vines, and it's pleasant to
bask in the beauty of fallen
leaves decorating lawns
and crunching beneath


our feet.
A great harvest makes
thankfulness come easy,
but the Old Testament
prophet, Habakkuk, con-
cluded we ought to be
thankful either in bounty
or blight, writing: "Though
the fig tree may not blos-
som, for fruit be on the
vines; though the labor of
the olive may fail, and the
fields yield no food;
though the flock be cut off
from the fold, and there be
no herd in the stalls - yet I
will rejoice in the Lord, I
will joy in the God of my
salvation (3:17-18).
"Sounds like a tough
time to be thankful," you
say.
Granted.
But carrying out Paul's
pronouncement on
thanksgiving may be even
more difficult.
Think about it.


These nine words call
for being thankful for
everybody in your church
(even the pastor) whenev-
er they come to mind.
What's going on here?
Was the church at
Philippi perfect?
Of course not. There are
no perfect churches
because there are no per-
fect people.
Someone told the still
noted 19th century
English minister, Charles
Spurgeon, that he was
looking for a perfect
church to attend.
"If you find one don't
join it or you'll spoil it,"
Spurgeon replied.
How then could the
author of this powerful
nine-word formula carry
out his guarantee of con-
tinual thankfulness?
He chose to focus on the
faithfulness of these frail


people, rather than on
their faults, and following
his example would create
an atmosphere of love in
any church or family.
Frequently I have con-
ducted a "Thank God for
you" service in churches
where I have been a guest
speaker. This featured a
time when all members of
the. congregation were to
look at the others and let
me know when they saw
someone for whom they
were thankful.
The results have always
been gratifying as people
discovered how many
loved, appreciated and
gave thanks for them.
Changing your attitude
from grumbling about
people to gratitude for
them may make this the
greatest harvest season
your church and family
have ever known.

Health


November 28,2007


If you read this column
regularly, you're well aware
of my passion for retro-
food.
This includes dishes
from as far back as ancient
Rome and the Middle Ages
to my favorite recipes that
I grew up with.
It's always fun to update
the classics and create new
dishes that the whole fam-
ily can enjoy.
Whether tasting these
foods for the first time or
revisiting a fond memory,
you can savor these tried-
and-true flavors while put-
ting a modern, healthier
twist on them.
With holiday party sea-
son about to arrive, I'm
always looking for dishes
that are simple, can be
made ahead of time and,
above all else, impress my
guests. One of my favorite
retro dishes fits the bill
perfectly.
Remember sweet and
sour cocktail meatballs?
To jog your memory,
think grape jelly and
ketchup. These tiny, tangy
meatballs were staples at
get-togethers throughout
the sixties and seventies.
To update the original
recipe, I'm using lean
ground turkey breast in
place of beef and whole-
wheat bread instead of
white breadcrumbs.
I've also added some
cooked brown rice to light-
en up the meatballs while
providing some additional
fiber and nutrients. Lastly,
rather than fry the hours
d'oeurves, I'm baking
them. This not only cuts
out calories, but saves
time as well.
For the sauce, I've cut
out the sugar and corn
syrup featured in the origi-
nal recipe and am using
fruit-sweetened grape
spread.
If this isn't available in
your area, low-sugar grape
jelly is an appropriate sub-
stitute. I use chili sauce
(most often served with
shrimp cocktail) rather
than ketchup because it is


spicier and less sweet.
To suit today's pen-
chance for bolder flavors,
I've also added chili pow-
der, ginger and a hint of
garlic to the sauce.
The entire dish freezes
well and is perfect for
making ahead of time. The
recipe can be multiplied
up to four times, although
I suggest starting with
three whole eggs, not four,
if you increase the yield by
this much.
Hot Cocktail Meatballs
1 cup tomato puree
1/2 cup chili sauce
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 cup fruit-sweetened
grape spread, or low-sugar
grape jelly
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 slices whole-wheat
sandwich bread, crusts
removed
1 lb. 93 percent lean
ground turkey
1/2 cup cooked brown
basmati rice
1/2 cup finely chopped
onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 large egg plus 1 egg
white
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black
pepper
Preheat the oven to 375
degrees.
Soak the bread in a bowl
of cold water until it is soft,


about 30 seconds. Squeeze
out all of the moisture and
place the bread in a large
mixing bowl. Add the
turkey, rice, onion, garlic,
egg, egg white, salt and
pepper. Mix with a fork
until well combined.
Form the mixture into
1-inch meatballs, placing
them 1/2-inch apart on a
baking sheet. Bake 20 min-
utes, or until the meatballs
feel firm and are white in
the center.
Meanwhile, in a large,
deep saucepan, combine
the tomato puree, chili
sauce, tomato paste, grape
spread, chili powder, garlic
powder and ginger.
Bring to a gentle boil,
reduce the heat and sim-
mer the sauce, stirring to
dissolve the jam. Cook
until the sauce thickens
slightly, about 15 minutes.
Add the meatballs and
cook 5 minutes longer.
Serve immediately or cool
and refrigerate, tightly cov-
ered, for up to two days.
Reheat in a saucepan over
medium heat, stirring
often, for about 30 min-
utes. Or, cover with foil
and place in a 350 degree
oven for 30 minutes.
Makes 36 meatballs.

balls): 87 calories, 2 g total

During the holiday sea-
son it often seems there
aren't enough hours in the
day. Not only do we have
our own busy schedules,
but requests for help from
others can also increase at
this time of the year.
Whether it's our par-
ents, children, school,
church or friends seeking
assistance and "a little bit
of your time," it can add
up to a burden that leaves
you stressed and without
enough time to care for
your own needs.
While saying "no" to
some of those requests
may seem the obvious
answer, it's hard to do,for
many people. Often that
inability to say no is tied to
how you see yourself.
Experts find that people
who almost always say yes
often have low self-esteem
and self-confidence.
They're nervous about
offending and often rate
others' needs higher than
their own.
None of this means that
you need to say no to


every request, but when
others' demands leave you
feeling exhausted, stressed
and upset, it's time for a
change.
How do you fix the
problem? Start by actually
learning how to say no..
Your refusals needn't be
complicated or backed by
false excuses. Just keep it
simple and direct. Saying,
"Thanks for thinking of
me, but sorry, I just can't
do it," works fine. You
want to be firm in your
decision and strong in
your body language. Don't
over-apologize. You don't
need permission to say no
when that's really the right
response.
And saying no isn't a
reason for guilt. Your time
and happiness have value.
Plus, it's good for your
children or a demanding
parent to hear an occa-
sional no. It helps set
boundaries and make
clear you can't grant every
wish.
It also helps to realize
yes and no aren't the only


answers. Compromise
often works, doing what
you can but not granting
the full request. However,
if what you really need to
say is no, then do so.
Being unable to ever say
no is not a healthy way to
live. While giving and
helping others has its
rewards, you also need
time to enjoy yourself and
your life.
If saying no is virtually
impossible for you, talk to
a counseling professional.
An experienced counselor
can help you know your-
self better, understand
what you really want from
life and put your life in
better balance.

Corner" is provided as a

PCSO Plans DUI Initiative


Polk County Sheriff's
Office, in partnership with
the Polk County
Community Traffic Safety
Team will be working this
holiday season to crack
down on impaired drivers.
The "Drunk Driving:
Over the Limit. Under
Arrest" program is
designed to detect


impaired drivers, and to
identify drivers with safety
violations.
Motorists should look
for sobriety checkpoints,
saturation patrols and
undercover officers.
According to the Nation
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA),
in 2006, more than 13,000


people were killed in traf-
fic crashes that involved at
least one driver or motor-
cyclists with a blood alco-
hol concentration (BAC) of
.08 or higher.
"Drunk driving is not
worth the risk," said
Sheriff Grady Judd.


Nutrition Wise-
By Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN
for the American Institute for Cancer Research


Q: How much weight do
most people gain during
the holiday season?
A: The holidays can
spell trouble for anyone
trying to lose or maintain
weight.
While many people
begin the New Year feeling
five to 10 pounds heavier,
such large gains are not
the norm. A study of near-
ly 200 adults published in
the New England Journal
of Medicine reported an
average weight gain of
about one pound per per-
son from mid-November
to early or mid-January.
Another study, pub-
lished by the University of
Oklahoma, found that, on
average, college students
gained one pound within
the two weeks preceding
and following
Thanksgiving break.
But it is important to
note that these averages
obscure individual differ-
ences among study partic-
ipants. In the former study,
those who were less active
than usual gained more
over the holiday season,
while those who reported
increased activity levels


stayed about the same
weight or even lost a
pound or so.
In both studies, people
who were already over-
weight gained more than
participants who began
the study at a healthy
weight.
Also, although fewer
than 10 percent of the
adults studied gained
more than five pounds
over the holiday season,
overweight and obese sub-
jects were much more like-
ly to be in this high-
weight-gain group.
While gaining one or
two pounds doesn't seem
like much, many people
retain the excess weight
from year to year, con-
tributing to the gradual
increase in body weight
that frequently occurs dur-
ing adulthood.
To help combat holiday
heft, be sure to keep phys-
ically active. Also, don't let
an extra treat or two derail
your efforts. The "I've
blown it" outlook usually
leads people to really over-
do it, which could end up
affecting your weight.

publications to build a
bridge from analysis to
action," said Education
Commissioner Jeanine
Blomberg. "It is rewarding
to provide tools to educa-
tors that support and aid
in classroom instruction."
In 2006, the DOE con-
vened a task force of cur-
riculum supervisors and
specialists, resource teach-
ers, school administrators


and Florida educators to
examine and review the
DOE's data analyses of stu-
dent performance.
The task force used
these insights to draft
observations and instruc-
tional implications to
improve instruction in the
classroom.
This is the second time
the DOE has published
Lessons Learned for read-
ing and mathematics. The
first publication was
released in May 2002, and
contained data results in
reading and mathematics
from 1998-2000 and writ-
ing from 1993-2000.
The DOE intends to
begin work on editions of
Science and Writing+
Lessons Learned in the
near future.
Printed copies of the
latest Lessons Learned
have been shipped to
every district across the
state for teacher use.

Asymptomatic Fresh Carson Is CFDC Director Immigration Topic

Fruit May Be Shipped Of Business Development of Roundtable Event


U.S. Department of
Agriculture has issued a
final rule that allows for
the shipment of asympto-
matic fresh citrus fruit to
non-citrus producing
states in the domestic
market.
In addition, grove certi-
fication will no longer be
required for the shipment
of Florida fresh fruit.
Instead, a qualified
sample will be taken from
each load and inspected
by USDA inspectors.at the
packinghouse. Fruit that is
found to have canker
symptoms will not be
shipped.
About 10 percent of
Florida citrus goes to fresh
channels, the remainder is
processed into juice.
"We applaud the USDA
for making a measured


decision on this rule," said
Michael W. Sparks, execu-
tive VP/CEO of Florida
Citrus Mutual. "Without
this type of rule we might
lose the entire Florida
fresh citrus industry."
Florida packers will still
not be able to ship fresh
fruit to commercial citrus
producing states such as
California, Texas and
Arizona.
Sparks said Mutual will
continue to work to imple-
ment a policy that eventu-
ally allows fresh Florida
citrus to enter commercial
citrus producing states.

Disgusted with seeing
droopy drawers worn in
public, the Opa Locka city
council passed an ordi-
nance a couple of weeks
ago prohibiting saggyy
pants."
Bartow might be able to
enforce the same standard
under its existing code of
ordinances.
It's a matter of "fashion
trends versus virtually
obscene" dress, Interim
City Mgr. Sean Parker told
the city commission.
He researched the issue
after a citizen urged the
commission in October to
insist on more modest
dress in city parks.
Parker said the Bartow
code of ordinances already
prohibits "obscene behav-
ior," and that provision
could be used to regulate
dress in public. It also
could lead to litigation, he
warned.


People with complaints
about the way people can
dress can call city hall or
the police department, he
said.

Miner Dreams Dashed by Glades Day Gators, 23-21


By FRANK DERRICK
Sports Correspondent

Hearts were broken and
tears flowed after Belle
Glade Glades Day man-
aged a late game drive and
field goal to upset the top-
ranked Fort Meade Miners
23-21 Friday night.
Feelings were raw
because the Miners gave
everything they had physi-
cally and emotionally to
try and win this back-and-
forth battle.
Head Coach Mike
Hayde felt his players' pain
but was proud of their
effort.
Glades would receive
the opening kickoff and
promptly grind out a ten
play drive consuming the
first five minutes of the
game. The Gators recog-
nized the need to keep the
ball out of Miner hands as
much as possible, espe-
cially those of Onterio
McCalebb.
But the Miners defense
came to play and eventu-
ally forced Glades to turn
it over on downs, giving
Fort Meade the ball on
their own 34-yard line.
Then disaster struck.
On first and 10, junior
quarterback Rumeal
Carlton attempted a pass
to Tray Williams in the flat
but it fell incomplete.
The problem was, it
actually was ruled a later-
al, allowing the Glades
defense to "scoop and
score," and even though
the PAT failed, the Gators
led 6-0 with seven minutes
left in the first quarter.
On Fort Meade's open-
ing possession, the offense
would go three and out,
having to punt it away, but
the Miner defense had
their back. On third and
six, Glades would commit
their first turnover, fum-
bling at the Miner 48-yard
line, giving the ball right
back to the offense.
The Miners would get a
nice pass to Jeff Jones for
12 yards and a 12-yard run
from Onterio McCalebb,
only to lose the ball again
on downs.
It would take Glades
just seven plays to move
67 yards, scoring on a 25-
yard pass from Bo
Schlecter to Anthony
Norton with 10:49 to go in
the first half.
The two point try failed
but now Glades had a 12-0
lead and all the momen-
tum. But this year's Miner


team has faced adversity
many times this season.
They were not about to
give up to their long-time
playoff rival.
On the kickoff, Glades
intentionally kicked short,
away from McCalebb, try-
ing to avoid a long return.
Unfortunately for Glades,
Anthony "Smoke" Russell
would be the recipient.
Taking the ball in
around his 20-yard line,
Russell would race 70
yards to the Gator 10-yard
line. Even with a Miner
personal foul call, Fort
Meade still began their
drive at the Glades 29-yard
line. It wouldn't take long.
Three McCalebb runs
followed by a Miners
motion penalty would put
the ball at the 19-yard line.
On second and 10, Carlton
would find Jeff Jones in the
corner of the end zone for
the touchdown pass.
Following the PAT of
Freddy Cortez, the Miners
were right back in it, trail-
ing 12-7 with 8:39 left in
the half.
Following a three and
out and a short Glades
punt, Fort Meade would
set up shop at the Gator
44-yard line. Again,
Carlton found Jones
behind the Glades defense
for a 44-yard bomb.
Cortez' kick was good,
and just like that, the
Miners now lead 14-12
with 6:47 to go in the first
half.
In the next six minutes,
Fort Meade had an oppor-
tunity to seize control of
the ballgame. A blocked
Glades punt, a Glades
fumble, and a short Glades
punt would give the
Miners three red-zone
chances, only to come up
empty on each.
Following the blocked
punt, the Miners turned it
over on downs. After the
fumble, : Cortez would
snub a 38-yard field goal
attempt. On the short
punt, the Miners would
run out of clock, as they
attempted to score on sec-
ond and four from the
Glades eight-yard line
with one second left. The
red-zone shut out would
prove decisive in the final
result.
But at halftime, Fort
Meade had the lead and
the momentum. By mak-
ing defensive adjustments,
the Miner defense had all
but shut down the Glades
playmakers.


In fact, the Miners
would allow only one
Gator offensive touch-
down on the night. It was
turnovers that sealed the
Miners fate.
After trading posses-
sions early in the second
half, Fort Meade would
drive to the Glades 40-yard
line on the strength of 53
yards in McCalebb rushes.
On third and 12,
Carlton dropped back to
pass but was sacked under
hard pressure. As he was
hit, Carlton put the ball on
the ground, giving Glades
its second "scoop and
score" in the game.
The two-point conver-
sion was good and with
1:37 left in the third quar-
ter, the Miners trailed
again 20-14.
The following Miner
drive would stall after
eight plays, forcing a Fort
Meade punt. Cortez would
hit a nice 36-yard place-
ment kick and pin Glades
back at their nine-yard
line.
But the Gators would
get their running game
going, allowing Glades to
click off a twelve play
drive, eating up valuable
minutes in the process.
The Miner defense
would finally bow up, forc-
ing a Glades punt that
would put the Miners at
their own 16-yard line.
With just under six min-
utes to play, things looked
bleak for the home team.
That's when senior run-
ning back McCalebb
showed why he has been
the Miners' go-to guy this
season.
Finding a crease on the
right side, McCalebb
squirted through the hole
and raced untouched for
an 84-yard touchdown
and, after the Cortez kick,
the Miners had the lead
back at 21-20 with 5:29Jeft
in the game. Cortez boot-
ed the kickoff 68 yards and
out of the endzone for a
touchback.
But five and a half min-
utes would prove to be
plenty of time for Glades,
as they would rediscover
the passing combination
of Schlecter to Norton.
Norton would get open
twice, first for 32 yards and
then for 36 yards, giving
Glades a first and goal at
the Miner seven-yard line.
A tough Miner defense
would give up just two
yards on three plays, but
on fourth and five,

the lookout for Grace next year as the Miners try to find a replacement for the gradu-
ating Onterio McCalebb. - (Photo by Armando Lopez)


Schlecter would boot the
winning 22-yard field goal
with 58 seconds left.
But the never-say-die
Miners would fight to the
very end. After kicking out
of bounds, Glades was
forced to re-kick, and
Anthony Russell would
show great effort, getting
all the way to the Glades
46-yard line.
Carlton found Russell in
the flat for a 7 yard gain. A
2 yard McCalebb run
would move the ball to the
Glades 37 yard line.
An incomplete Carlton
pass would make it 4th
and 2.
The savvy Carlton
would then tuck it under
for the keeper and gain a
crucial 10 yards, giving
Fort Meade a 1st and 10 at
the Glades 27-yard line.
The Miners were now in
range for a Cortez attempt,
based on a successful 47-
yard effort in the Fall
Classic back in August.
But the Miners still had
32 seconds and Hayde was
hoping to get Freddy a bet-
ter shot. But the sideline
pass would prove deadly
as the Gator defender
broke on Carlton's pass,
snatching the ball away
and, with it, the Miners'
championship dream.
"We did mount a come-
back," said Hayde. "We
had a nice drive and tried
to throw the out-route and
get positioned for a field
goal and then their kid
picked it off."
The end result was extra
frustrating, because,
unlike last year's 44-0


defeat at Glades, the
Miners outplayed the
Gators in every phase.
The Miners out-gained
Glades with 359 total yards
to 279 yards for the Gators.
The Miners out-passed
and out-rushed Glades.
They even out-defended
Glades. Even with Glades
playing to contain
McCalebb, the senior back
turned in a typically bril-
liant effort, rushing for 222
yards on 22 carries.
The Miners also had the
three offensive scores to
just one for Glades. But, in
the end, the two turnovers
for scores and a late field
goal would prove to be the
difference for the under-
dog Gators.
In his closing comment,
Hayde expressed his pride
in this year's squad.
"But you know, we as
coaches are very proud of
this football team - very
proud," he said. "They
played with great effort -
great heart, all year long.
We had a much better sea-
son than last year."
Sometimes, especially
at this level, a loss can feel
like the end of the world
for a group of young men
who've given their all on
the field of play, as the
Miners did Friday night.
But a strange event
occurred Saturday morn-
ing at 6:56 a.m. The sun
came up ... and life kept
on coming.
We'll remember this
year's team as a tough
bunch who overcame a lot
of adversity to compile an
excellent 10-2 record. A


ninth consecutive district
championship and Coach
Hayde's 100th coaching
victory in just his tenth
year were memorable.
And dominating wins
over county rivals Bartow
and Frostproof were par-
ticularly sweet.
If the Miners can fill
some big shoes in the line-
backing corps, and
Tamorris Grace, LaKevin
Camp, Dwayne McCalebb
and company can take up
the slack for graduating
Onterio McCalebb, the
2008 Miners should be a
lot of fun to watch. Add in
the top kicker in the state
in Freddy Cortez and
another shot at Orlando
next December may very
well be a realistic goal for
next year's Miner squad..
As we close out this
2007 season, a personal
note is in order - a big
thanks to all the Fort
Meade Miner fans who
have expressed positive
feedback for the Leader's
coverage of Miner football.
It is a labor of love for
this moonlighting sports
writer. It's also just plain
fun to follow our young
people as they represent
us on the various playing
fields here and elsewhere.
If you're like me, you are
already experiencing high
school "football withdraw-
al."
So take heart. It's only
250 days until fall practice
starts.
See you then and Go
Miners!

Feral hogs are a non-

that damage natural areas,
compete with native
wildlife and destroy vege-
tation. Florida has the sec-
ond largest wild hog popu-
lation in the U.S., next to
Texas.
They cause damage by
rooting with their broad
snouts, leaving large areas
that look like plowed
fields.
The Sumica property, a
4,031 acre site east of Lake
Wales on State Road 60,
was purchased by Polk
County through its
Environmental Lands
Program and the South
Florida Water
Management District in
1999.
They acquired the land
to protect Lake Walk-in-
Water and the Walk-in-
Water Creek shoreline,
protect the wetlands and
marsh systems on site,
protect rare species, and to
provide nature-based
recreation opportunities.

Today is an important
day in Polk County's sports
history: 100 years ago, on
Nov. 28, 1907, students
from Summerlin Institute
in Bartow gathered with
other spectators to watch
Polk's first high school
football game.
Summerlin's team,
coached by noted football
player Glenn Skipper, sank
Lakeland High School 53-
0. Here's the story of that
Thanksgiving Day tri-
umph, as told by local his-
torian Lloyd Harris.

The birth date of foot-
ball is generally regarded
by historians as Nov. 6,
1969, when Rutgers
University played
Princeton. The first profes-
sional game dates to 1895,
when paid teams from
Latrobe and Jeannette, Pa.,
met on the scrimmage
line.
Polk County's first game
was played on the parade
field of South Florida
Military Institute on South
Broadway in Bartow when
boys from Company A and
Company B took a turn at
this interesting contest on
Thanksgiving Day 1903.
The fever soon spread.
By January 1906, high
schools were following
suit. An embryonic team
was pulled together at
Bartow's Summerlin
Institute (now Bartow
High School) with
Lawrence Summerlin as its
first captain. The game
was rough, mostly rushing
through the middle or
flanks. The forward pass
was just being introduced
to the game, and by the
next Thanksgiving, the
stage was set.


The first week of
November 1907, saw
Bartow again organizing a
team with Glenn Skipper, a
noted football player,
coaching the team.
Practice was held every
day. Two games would be
played this year, a big line-
up with Lakeland and
Tampa teams proposing to
challenge. By the second
week of November, there
still wasn't a set date.
Everyone in town was
interested.
The newspaper
quipped: "Nothing devel-
ops the physical manhood
of a boy like football."
By the end of
November's third week,
the gauntlet was picked up
by Lakeland. The date of
the game? Why not
Thanksgiving?
On Monday night, a
crowd of high school stu-
dents and teachers met in
the school's auditorium to
practice "yells" for
Thursday to help the
Bartow boys beat
Lakeland.
The playing ground
would be the empty
parade field of the old
South Florida Military
College, which had closed
a couple of years earlier. It
was considered that the
game would be close as
Bartow's boys averaged
145 pounds and Lakeland's
had a few pounds advan-
tage. Bartow's team said
they didn't mind bucking a
few extra pounds and were
determined to have
Lakeland's scalp.
The call went out to the
community to wear
Summerlin Institute colors
of orange and white.
Lakeland would be wear-


Summerlin Institute students, football players and
fans, including a dog, gathered to watch a game in 1908.
Automobiles include one of the first off the market. The


Undisputed champions of Florida from 1909 to 1912 Van Fleet; second row - *R. Borden Wilson, Sam Lang,
were the gridders of Summerlin Institute. This 1909 team *Joseph Woodard, *Noel Stanley; back - George
photo include several members of the original 1907 Hamilton, Clarence Tillman, Bill Davis, James Tillman,
team (marked by an asterisk) (from left): front - *Coach Glenn Skipper, Lee McLean and *FrankWilson.

ing black and white and
coming in large numbers.
Admission was 25 cents.
Thanksgiving Day, 1907.
Dinner over, the crowds
gathered in front of the old
college. Orange and white,
black and white. Lakeland
wins the toss and chooses
to defend the south goal.


Promptly at 3 p.m.,
Summerlin kicks offto
Lakeland, and in less than
a minute, a fumble turns
into Bartow's first score.
Emerson Harless (Class
of 1909) goes over for the
first touchdown. A kick by
the left halfback, Snedigar,
adds to the score. Other


car has no headlights, so lanterns were used when nec-
essary. At right is a water boy, with a bucket. Football
players are wearing striped socks.


touchdowns were made in
rapid succession. In fact,
all Summerlin needed was
to get the ball. The score at
the end of the first half
stood Summerlin 21,
Lakeland 0.
The second half,
Lakeland substituted two
players, but Bartow kept
its original lineup.
Punching through the line
coupled with end runs
garnered the Bartow team
six more touchdowns.
Lakeland had gone to
pieces.
The Summerlin team's
sponsor, Miss Nellie
Dunlap, was smiling as
Bub Whitney blew his ref-
eree's whistle, ending the
game.
Bartow's Summerlin
Institute had scored 53
points to Lakeland's 0. The
encouragement of the
crowd's school yells and
display of orange and
white were noted to be an
encouragement to the
home team and discon-
certing to Lakeland.
The Lakeland team
showed true sportsman-
ship in acknowledging the
best team won. Bartow
boys admired them for
their grit and gave them a
rousing cheer.
Bartow's team contin-
fled to dominate. The next
year, five games were
played, including Rollins
College, Orlando High


School, Stetson, and
Tampa's Hyde Park profes-
sionals.
Summerlin, undefeat-
ed, scored 99 points to
their opponents' five. In
the succeeding years, 1909
to 1912, Bartow held the
Florida championship.
High school football
continued to grow in Polk
County, and today still
provides a training ground
for sportsmanship, team-
work, physical stamina,
leadership, and fair play.
Bartow's first high
school football game was a
smashing victory and set
the standard for years to
come.
Championship teams
gathered laurels for the fol-
lowing years: 1908, 1909,
1910, 1911, 1912, champi-
ons of Florida; 1921, 1922,
1932, 1938, 1939, 1940,
1941, 1942, 1945, 1946,
South Florida champions;
1955, 1957, 1960, 1962,
Southwest Florida cham-
pions; 1977, 1985, state 3A
champions; and 1996,
state 4A champions.
Summerlin Institute's
first football game predat-
ed the Florida High School
Athletic Association,
which was founded on
April 9, 1920, by a group of
29 high school principals
who met at Peabody Hall
on the University of
Florida campus in
Gainesville.

First Field: The parade ground of the
former South Florida Military College
(1895-1905). Located between Stuart
Street and Tharp Street parallel to
Broadway Avenue on the west, and direct-
ly north of Bartow High School's
Summerlin building.
The Game in 1907: Football consisted
of 11 players on each team competing for
a period of one hour divided into two
halves of 30 minutes each. The distance
to gain for a first down had recently been
increased to 10 yards. Teams changed
goals after every touchdown and the for-
ward pass had been introduced the year
before. A touchdown was awarded five
points followed by a successful conver-
sion garnering an additional one point.
Field goals were awarded four points and
a safety would net two points. Uniforms
were not purchased until the. second sea-
son and consisted of a leather helmet, jer-
sey, padded trousers, cleats, and knee
socks. Reforms in the game were intro-
duced this year due to crippling injuries
resulting from hurdling and mass forma-
tions where brute strength and great
weight were deciding factors. The new
"safety rules" and reforms appealed to the
introduction of the game at the high
school level and no doubt led to Bartow
and Lakeland's first contest 100 years ago.
Summerlin Institute (Bartow) chal-
lenged 10 high schools and universities
for the 1908 season.
From 1909 to 1912 they were the undis-
puted state football champions.


Summerlin Institute featured on a postcard, circa 1910.

acres to serve as a Library expansion


known as Florida Southern College.
The project is located in Polk County,
Section(s) 19, Township 28 South,
Range 24 East. The permit applicant is
Florida Southern College whose
address is 111 Lake Hollingsworth
Drive, Lakeland, FL.
The permit number is 44014465.006.
The file(s) pertaining to the project
referred to above is available for
inspection Monday through Friday
except for legal holidays, 8:00 a.m. to
5:00 p.m., at the Southwest Florida
Water Management District (District)
170 Century Blvd., Bartow, FL 33830-
7700.
NOTICE OF RIGHTS
Any person whose substantial interests
are affected by the District's agency
action may petition for an administrative
hearing in accordance with Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statues
(F.S.), and Chapter 28-106, Florida
Administrative Code, (F.A.C.), of the
Uniform Rules of Procedure. A request
for hearing must (1) explain how the
substantial interests of each person
requesting the hearing will be affect-
ed by the District's action, or final
action; (2) state all material facts dis-
puted by each person requesting the
hearing or state that there are no dis-
puted facts; and (3) otherwise com-
ply with Chapter 28-106, F.A.C. A
request for hearing must be filed with
and received by the Agency Clerk of the
District's Brooksville address, 2379
Broad Street, Brooksville, FL 34609-
6899. within 21 days of publication of
this notice (or within 14 days for an
Environmental Resource Permit with
Proprietary Authorization for the use of
Sovereign Submerged Lands). Failure
to file a request for hearing within this
time period shall constitute a waiver of
any right such person may have to
request a hearing under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the District's final action
may be different from the position taken
by it in this notice of agency action.
Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final deci-
sion of the District on the application
have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation pursuant to Section 120.573,
F.S. to settle an administrative dispute
regarding the District's action in this
matter is not available prior to the filling
of a request for hearing.
