'Everybody Has a Clint Wright Story'


Everybody, according
to his daughter, has a
Clint Wright story.
Debra L. Wright,
daughter of the late edu-
cator, represented her
family Tuesday night
when Wright, who died
almost exactly one year
ago, was inducted
posthumously into the
Bartow High School Hall
of Fame.
Ms. Wright, who bears
a clear resemblance to
her father in both appear-
ance and personality, said
she and other members
of her family often are
approached in the gro-
cery store and asked if
they are related to Wright.
Everyone, she said,
"has to tell me a Clint
Wright story . about
how he impacted their
life.
"He never turned water
into wine, but he kept the
party going," she
quipped.
She asked everyone in
the Summerlin Building


auditorium who knew her
father to stand, and about
half the audience did.
She asked them to tell
children "a Clint Wright
story."
Jeff Dodson, president
of B.E.S.T.T. (Best in
Education for Students of
Today and Tomorrow)
presented Ms. Wright
with a plaque honoring
her father.
Wright, who held a
doctorate in education,
was superintendent of the
Lake Wales Charter
School System when he
died at the age of 55. He
was born in Bartow on
Nov. 19, 1952, and gradu-
ated from Bartow High
School in 1971.
In his educational
career, he served as a
teacher, assistant princi-
pal, principal, assistant
superintendent, and
superintendent, and as
an adjunct professor at St.
Leo University and
Webber International
University.


He was a popular moti-
vational speaker, fre-
quently speaking to stu-
dents about staying in
school and continuing
their higher education.
He also spoke often to
students in the juvenile
justice system regarding
career paths and educa-
tional opportunities.
The Hall of Fame hon-
ors graduates of
Summerlin Institute,
Union Academy, and BHS
- the institution created
when SI and UA were
merged with the integra-
tion of Polk County
schools who have gone
on to achieve prominence
in the county, state, or
nation.
The B.E.S.T.T. organi-
zation is a community
support for the high
school, with emphasis on
academic support and
recognition.
At the Hall of Fame
program this year in its
15th year B.E.S.T.T.
presents academic letters


to the top scholars at
BHS, the International
Baccalaureate program,
and Summerlin Academy.

staff members who have
achieved special honors
in the school year also are
recognized at the event.
This year, they were:

of the year and National
Board certified teacher.

Townhouse Zoning Approved;


Trail Extension Prospects Dim


By S. L. FRISBIE, IV
Publisher

Bartow city commissioners gave
final approval to construction of a
22-unit townhouse development
on East Church Street at First
Avenue, and acknowledged that
hopes to extend the Fort Fraser
Trail along that site are fading.
The two-bedroom and three-
bedroom units, facing First Avenue
on the northeast corner of Church
and First, probably will be priced at
about $180,000, Joshua Cheney,
director of planning for Moduss,
Inc., told the commission.
(Cnmmiisionepr and nepirhhnrs


expressed few concerns about the
townhouses, but said they had
hoped that the Fort Fraser Trail, a
rails-to-trails project that stretches
from Lakeland to just south of Van
Fleet Drive, would follow that
route.
Robert Henry, who lives in the
Church Street Historic District just
west of the townhouse site, asked if
there was any chance that the trail
would be extended south near First
Avenue.
"At this time, the answer is 'no,"'
Mayor Brian Hinton replied. The
problem is getting permission for a
railway crossing, he said. '
H-Tpnrv said that the Dpnt of


Transportation demolished the
overpass on Van Fleet Drive hfat
would have provided safe passage,
and suggested that the city ask
DOT to build a "fly-over" over Van
Fleet.
Gil LePlante, who also lives in
the historic district, said any devel-
opment in the area should enhance
preservation of the Thompson Co.
cigar factory.
"I hope you can come up with
something other than townhous-
es," he said.
Cheney said the design of the
townhouses will be compatible

Mined Land Slightly Radioactive


Third installment of a
three-part story on the
Florida Institute of
Phosphate Research.

By GREG MARTIN
StaffWriter

Concerns that mining
exposes workers and the
public to elevated levels
of radioactivity have'been
raised since at least the
early 1980s. And the
Florida Institute of
Phosphate Research has
sponsored about a dozen
studies in response.
In 1986, a FIPR-funded
study found that the con-
centrations of radioactivi-
ty in certain crops grown





7 05252 00025 81


on mined land were "sig-
nificantly higher" than
the average on unmined
land.
However, the higher
levels were "quite low and
are not considered a
health concern," the
study stated.
FIPR hired Florida
Audubon in 1986 to find
out if certain animals
inhabiting mined lands
also had higher levels of
radioactivity. Reptiles,
armadillos, turtles and
alligators were sampled.
Only the turtles had a
higher-than-normal
radioactivity level, but
not high enough to
endanger the health of
people who eat them, the
study concluded.
Another study found
birds inhabiting mined
sites had four times the
level of Radium-226 in
their bones than the max-


imum acceptable for
humans. But since the
birds normally had a
short life span, the radi-
um was unlikely to harm
them, the study conclud-
ed.
FIPR conducted anoth-
er study to determine if
it's safe to eat fish taken
from pits on mined lands.
That study compared the
levels of Radium-226,
Lead 210, mercury and
cadmium in fish from
mine pits and natural
lakes.
The only notable dif-
ference between the fish
was that mercury levels
were higher in the natur-
al-lake fish. That's appar-
ently due to the fact that
natural lakes have been in
existence longer, so they
have absorbed more mer-

Small amounts of radioactive materials, like radium, are a natural part of
Florida's geology. As part of the phosphate rock, they are processed with it and may
accumulate in or on some equipment. In this photo, radiation levels are measured
with a survey meter. (Photo provided by FIPR)

Wrong Way To Choose a Vice President


Americans who are old
enough to remember the
administration of George Her-
bert Walker Bush may recall
awakening one morning to hear
news broadcasts that President
Bush had been stricken ill -
perhaps seriously ill during a
visit to Japan.
And they may remember
gasping slightly as they whis-
pered the words, "President
Quayle."
Sen. Dan Quayle of Indiana
was chosen by Bush to be his
running mate in the 1988 elec-
tion. Quayle may well have
been a good choice, but the vot-
ers barely knew him.
Like most vice presidential
candidates, he was chosen for
what political strengths he
could bring to his party's ticket,
and perhaps because his lack of
national reputation would not
detract from that of the presi-
dent.
At any rate, almost nobody
had heard of him before he was
tapped for the vice presidential
nomination, and had Bush


been as ill at it appeared he
might have been, Quayle would
have assumed the office of pres-
ident as a virtual unknown.

Vice presidential candidates
typically are selected to "bal-
ance the ticket," to please or
at least appease voters who
have major misgivings about
the presidential candidate, but
might be willing to vote for him
if he had a "more acceptable"
running mate.
When Massachusetts liberal
John E Kennedy tapped his
arch-rival, Texan Lyndon B.
Johnson to be his running mate,
it was an obvious pairing of
political opposites created to
appeal to a broad spectrum of
voters. And it worked.
As fate would have it, Johnson
was thrust into the presidency.
Whatever your opinion of his
political philosophy, his politi-
cal skills and qualifications to
hold that office were well estab-
lished.
In that regard, he was in the
minority of vice presidents.


Guessing who will be tapped
as vice presidential running
mates is a tradition as old as the
conventions at which delegates
rubber stamp the choice of the
presidential nominee.
Voters debate for months the
qualifications of the presiden-
tial nominee to hold that office,
but neither the nominees nor
the party pros give the slightest
thought to the leadership quali-
fications of the vice presidential
selections.
This year is no exception.
Most of the speculation at
this point is on the possible
Democratic vice presidential
nominees, even though the
presidential candidate has not
been chosen.
Hillary Clinton, as a woman,
obviously must choose a male
running mate. (Why? Just
because, that's why.) Might it be
her opponent and political
nemesis, Barack Obama?
After all, not only is he male;
he's also a minority.
If Hillary wins the presidency,


Bill will be the power behind the
throne, as she was in her hus-
band's presidency. But he's not
even under consideration for
the title of vice president.
Must Obama extend the olive
branch to Clinton and offer her
the vice presidential nomina-
tion? No, because it's okay to
have two men on the ticket, just
not two women. (Why? Just
because; that's why.)
Perhaps Bill Richardson. Not
only is he Caucasian; he's also
Hispanic. Two minorities on the
ticket, but one a white-skinned
minority.

Would any of these candi-
dates have the political and
intellectual qualifications to
hold the presidency, and would
they share the nominee's politi-
cal vision so that they could
carry on the policies that
attracted the voters to the nom-
inee?
Nobody knows, and nobody
cares, because that's not what
the vice presidency is about.
But it should be.

In my childhood, we
did our lessons on a slate
by the light of an open
fire, and solved our math
problems on an abacus.
Actually, I never mas-
tered the abacus, which
explains why I am, to this
day, mathematically
challenged. And the
rough surface of the slate
explains my illegible
handwriting.
That's my story, and
I'm sticking to it.
Hand-held calculators
have long since replaced
the abacus, not to men-
tion adding machines
and slide rules, and a lap-
top computer is almost
as essential to today's
scholars as a No. 2 pencil
was to my generation.
Some things, however,
I thought would never
change. Like kites.
Wrong again.
Liam, our five-and-a-
half-year-old grandson,
graduated from Florida
Southern College this
week. It took him only
,three years.
Okay, it was the educa-
tion lab program, in
which education majors
get experience dealing
with youngsters as young
as 2, but this is my story,
and I'll tell it my way.
Liam's Uncle Loyal and
Aunt Julie gave him a kite
for a graduation present.
(I'm sure he'll enjoy it
more if not for as long
- as the books that Mary
and I selected.)


Kites are one of those
things that I would sus-
pect had not changed
much since my child-
hood.
Hey, Bubba, everything
has changed since my
childhood.
Liam's kite is made
completely of plastic,
except for the string used
to fly it, which appears to
be nylon.
There is no such thing
as an indestructible kite,
but this. one ;came,
through its maiden flight'
in perfect condition.
Back in my day, kites
were made of tissue-
weight paper. Two sticks
placed at right angles
gave the kite its shape. I
don't know what kind of
sticks they used to make
kites, but matchsticks are
stronger. It you launched
your kite for the first time
without breaking one of
them, you were ahead of
the game.
Thin cotton string out-
lined the kite, with a tri-
angular link of string to
which you tied your ball
of twine. And it had a tail
of crepe paper, or a rag, or
whatever you could find
around the house. I don't
think store-bought kits
even came with tails.
I realize that if you
tried to build a kite from
this description, you
would end up with a cross
between a cocktail nap-
kin and a paper airplane,
but if you've read this far,


you probably had a kite
like that and you know
what I'm talking about.
Which means, inciden-
tally, that you're not as
young as you used to be.
Liam's kite is all plastic,
as I said. There are two
plastic cross-pieces like
the ones that were made
of sissy-sticks in my day,
plus a third one. Before I
could figure out where
that one went, Liam had it
put together. Okay,
maybe.it was his aunt or
his uncle, but Liam would
have figured it out before
I did.
In place of that trian-
gular loop of string, it has
a triangular piece of plas-
tic. Nothing to break;
nothing to get tangled.
And instead of that
crepe paper tail, it had a
plastic corkscrew tail that
looks like it belongs on
Porky Pig. Liam's kite is an
aerodynamic marvel.
You know that expres-
sion "When pigs fly"? This
is close.
Loyal and Julie and I
took Liam to Mary Hol-
land Park, where our own
kids used to fly kites.
There were few trees in
Mary Holland Park back
then. That has changed.
One thing has not
changed: trees still love
kites, as in love to' eat
them. But when this plas-
tic marvel flew into a tree,
Loyal gently coaxed it out,
in one piece.
It lived to fly again.


History From Our Files
Compiled from the files of The Democrat by Loyal Frisbie


50 Years Ago
Seven private clubs and a
score of suspected bootleg
joints were raided Saturday
in the biggest single assault
in history on the liquor trade
in legally dry Polk County.
Sheriff Hagan Parrish, who
coordinated the raids, said
about 70 men took part,
including sheriff's deputies,
State Beverage Dept. agents,
Polk County highway patrol-
men, police officers of the
cities affected, and represen-
tatives of the county solici-
tor's office.
Beginning Friday, May 1,
24 local merchants will
change their store hours to
remain open until 8 o'clock
on Fridays and close at 5:30
on weekdays, it was
announced today.

A new 1,800-ton dragline,
said to be the largest avail-
able for phosphate mining,
will be delivered to Virginia-
Carolina Chemical Corp.
here late this year, V-C share-
holders were told today.
Bartow's Key Club made
an unprecedented sweep of
honors at the state conven-
tion of Florida Key Clubs in
Hollywood Beach this week-
end. Hal Parkerson was elect-
ed state treasurer; a Bartow
musical combo won the tal-
ent contest and will go on the
national competition; and
the Bartow High School club
won the "single service"
award and placed second
with its achievement report.
40 Years Ago
Polk County was one of 22
additional counties placed
under a "no burning" procla-"
mation by Gov. Claude Kirk
yesterday in the prolonged
drought conditions existing
in nearly every section of


Florida. .
The Polk County Comri
mission authorized a pump-
ing operation Tuesday to
raise the level of the dwin-
dling pools in Peace River
Park in order to maintain the
wildlife population in the
park.
A Lakeland man was con-
victed at 2 a.m. Saturday of
first degree murder in the
shooting death of his wife.
The jury recommended
mercy, and Circuit Judge Allie
Lane sentenced the man to
life imprisonment. Shortly
afterward, as his father was
driving home to break the
news to the younger man's
mother, he was killed in an
auto crash, blamed on a
drunken driver.

Community spirit has
made a lot of difference in
how new school boundaries
and grade structures have
been designed in Polk Coun-
ty. Plans presented for Bar-
tow, Mulberry and Fort
Meade have met with little or
no resistance and probably
will be implemented with lit-
tle change in the next two
years. On the other hand,
Lake Wales and Winter

divided on what's best for
education in their communi-
ties and Lakeland has scarce-
ly even begun to talk about it.
W.R. Grace and Co.
announced Tuesday that

FIPR Studies Reclaimed Sites


(Continued from Page 1A)

cury from atmospheric
fallout, said Brian Birky,
FIPR radiological health
research director.
Scientists from FIPR
and Department of
Health scientists also test-
ed phosphate workers for
their exposure to radia-
tion in the mid-1990s.
Radiation detection
"badges" were placed on
hundreds of workers,
including those doing the
most risky task scrap-
ing a scale laced with
radium off a "filter pan" in
a chemical screening
device. The levels detect-
ed even on those workers
were within the accept-
able limit for the general
public.
"There's no significant,
compelling reason to
conduct further study on
that particular concern
with radiation," said
Birky.

Reclaiming
the moonscape
FIPR also has conduct-
ed numerous studies
intended to improve the
environmental quality of
reclaimed mine sites.
Some of those studies
reached conflicting con-
clusions.
For example, a 2001
study by environmental
scientist Laurie
MacDonald found that
gopher tortoises actually
reproduce more offspring
on sandy reclamation
areas than on natural
landscapes.
Wetlands ecologist
Kevin Erwin, in another
study, also found there
were more waterfowl and


fish, but less native
wildlife, on reclaimed
sites. However, he
described the man-made
wetland ecosystems as
"fragmented."
Another set of studies,
by Henry Mushinsky and
others at the University of
South Florida, found that
a dozen species of lizards,
turtles and birds found on
unmined sites were
"under-represented or
absent" from mined sites.
He attributed that to a
significant change in
habitat, primarily
through the loss of exten-
sive tree canopy and
understory.
FIPR also hired hydrol-
ogist Peter Schreuder to
experiment with using
mined sites as water sup-
ply projects. Schreuder
stored municipal waste
water in a clay settling
area and- filtered it
through a man made wet-
land and a sand tailings
pile to produce water that
meets almost all the
state's drinking water
standards.
The mining company
CF Industries is now
planning to put that
research to use. CF has
proposed diverting water
from the Peace River to a.
clay settling area near
Fort Meade where it
would be treated and
injected into the ground.
The goal is to restock a
public resource, said CF
Vice President Herschel
Morris, who sits on the
FIPR board.
"I think about a lot of
this in terms of how to
solve problems," said
Richardson, the FIPR
research director over


reclamation issues.
"Essentially, FIPR acts
sort of as a scientific think
tank regarding industry
issues that come before
it," said FIPR board mem-
ber Ann Paul, a Tampa
Bay regional coordinator
for the Florida Audubon.
Paul feels the studies
conducted by FIPR are
scientific and appropri-
ate. But she also encour-
ages people who feel
important issues are
being neglected to sug-
gest the institute study
them.
"On the one hand, we
can't approve projects
that aren't presented," she
said. "On the other hand,
making the most efficient
use of phosphate rock
here in Florida benefits
not only the companies,
which would clearly ben-
efit from using their
resources more efficient-
ly, but also the people.
Because we can't afford to
waste the resources of the
state."
Clifford said the insti-
tute's role is not to moni-
tor the companies' com-
pliance with regulations.
That's the job of the EPA
and the DEP, he said.
"FIPR's not charged
with doing everything,"
he said. "We spend the
funds on the highest pri-
orities that can help the
industry operate and
the government "operate
- in an environmental
manner.
"Our job is not to casti-
gate or defend the indus-
try" Clifford said. "We're
not involved in that
debate."


Trail Extension Not Probable

with the historic dis-
trict.
He said the plan is to
build the two-story devel-
opment in increments of
four units.
Commissioner Adrian
Jackson said he had
hoped to get a status
report on "traffic calming
devices" on Church Street
before taking final action
on the townhouses.
City Mgr. George A.
Long said the Community
Redevelopment Agency
has retained a consultant
to design them.
Jackson also said he
wanted to maintain the
option of extending the
Fort Fraser Trail through
that area to the cigar fac-
tory and the L.B. Brown
House.
"We have no vision for
what that area could be,"
he said.
As for a trail route, "it
seems like a lost cause,"
he said.
But he acknowledged
that townhouses would
be preferable to industrial
development, which
would be allowed under
existing zoning.

Hinton said that the
announced goal for the
trail is to bring visitors to
downtown Bartow.
Commissioner James E
Clements asked Cheney if
the developer would be
willing to build sidewalks
wide enough to accomo-
date the trail.
"It's something that
could be discussed,"
Cheney replied.
Commissioners voted
unanimously to approve
companion ordinances
changing the land use
from industrial to medi-
um density residential,
and the zoning from I-2

ment.

Longworth said the city
should consider extend-
ing the historic district
boundaries to take in the
old cigar factory.

Our museum porch
was buzzing with activity
last Thursday as we cele-
brated the 96th birthday
of Velma Howell, one of
our very active volun-
teers.
All the volunteers
brought a salad and those
were the best salads in
the world. We do have
some good cooks and
they all would have won a
blue ribbon for their sal-
ads.
Velma was presented a
pretty watch with a large
face that is easy to read by
the Historical Society .
She was surrounded by
her family and friends,
which made a happy day
for her.
I take a look at her
active energy in doing
things and think how nice
it is-to be able to reach the
age of 96 and then won-
der if I'll ever make it. So,
it's Happy Birthday to
Velma Howell and may
you have many more.

Back to the history of
the citrus groves with my
glass of orange juice by
my side.
During the 1880s, cit-
rus groves covered a large
area of the territory sur-
rounding Fort Meade and
other areas of Polk
County.
Of course, all work was
done by hand and some
of the early photographs
show spraying being done
from a barrel with a hand
pump being carried on a
horse-drawn cart. Two
men were needed to
operate it: one to pump
the spray and the other to
direct the spray on the
tree.
In those days, growers
counted their holdings by
the number of trees
rather than the number of
acres and sold their fruit
by the individual orange
rather than by the box.
In 1882, George
Summerlin, who had
planted a grove in Bartow
reported a sale of 25,000
oranges at $15 a 1,000.

VELMA HOWELL blew out her 96 candles during
her birthday party at the museum. (Museum

The northern market was
good but the transporta-
tion facilities made it dif-
ficult to ship fruit. Some
growers hauled their fruit
to Tampa where it was
loaded on ships and car-
ried north, while others
hauled their fruit to
Wildwood, then to the
nearest rail point.
About 1895, the first
packing house machinery
began arriving in Polk
County as growers began
modernizing their opera-
tions. When the railroad
stretched into Polk
County, providing rapid
shipment of fruit to the
northern states, a citrus
boom swept the area and
optimistic investors
began clearing land and
planting groves.
On Dec. 12, 1894,
nature took a hand and
turned the boom into a
disaster. An icy wave
swept out of the north,
sending temperatures in
Polk County below the 28-
degree mark.
Some fruit was dam-
aged and few trees hurt,
but the growers took
stock of their losses and
assured themselves that it
was not as bad as it could
have been. The cold lin-
gered a few days, to be
followed by a month of
warm, wet, spring-like
weather. Frozen fruit and
damaged leaves'fell from
the trees and tender new


buds began popping from
the bare branches.
On Feb. 7, a second
freeze slammed without a
warning across Florida.
Temperatures in Polk
County fell to 18 degrees.
Oranges, frozen to their
centers, burst on the trees
and the bark of many
trees was split, as the
freezing sap expanded.
In some groves more
than 90 percent of the
trees were killed. The
wealthy growers of
January were paupers in
February.
Many predicted that
the citrus industry would
never recover. Some
growers did give up their
holdings and entered
other endeavors. The oth-
ers, however, rolled up
their sleeves, grubbed out
the dead trees and began
again.
Their faith in PoJk
County as the potential
citrus center of the world
has been many times jus-
tified since then.
More next week on the
citrus industry.


Don't forget the
Maypole Dance on May 1
in the museum back yard
with about 750 students
taking part. The time is 9
o'clock in the morning.
Come watch the third
graders perform.

Get Tips To Stay'Green'


MADRID ENGINEERING GROUP celebrated the opening of its new office with
a Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting Friday. Larry and Connie
Madrid, holding scissors, along with son Daniel, were on hand to welcome guests.
The building has been registered "green" with the U.S. Green Building Council.
This is a first for Bartow and Polk County, Madrid said. (Staff photos).


Earth Day was Tuesday,
and the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation (Department)
and the Department of
Environmental
Protection are unveiling
"Business in the Green,"
an educational resource
website.
The page is intended to
encourage Florida's busi-
nesses and professionals
to get in the green -
environmentally, that is.
In support of Governor
Charlie Crist's "Serve to
Preserve" initiative, the
department has compiled
a Web-based resource
page with helpful tips and
links to help Florida foster
a more eco-friendly busi-
ness community.


"Our goal in creating
the 'Business in the
Green' Web resource page
is to inspire our licensees
to do their part in helping
to reduce our collective
carbon footprint," said
Interim Secretary Chuck
Drago. -"If all of our
licensees and businesses
commit to a few of these
energy-saving tips, not
only will they save money
on utility bills, but also
they will help Florida
become a leader in the
green movement."
"Business in the
Green" lists helpful tips to
become "Green at Home,"
"Green at Work" and
"Green in the Car," in
addition to providing
links to state and federal


organizations, ranging
from local governments
to the Department of
Energy's incentive and tax
credit Web page.
The department
recently took steps
toward environmentally
friendly practices by
changing all of the light
bulbs to more energy effi-
cient halogens, placing
motion sensors on light
switches, and replacing
some fleets of cars with
flex-fuel vehicles.
Those interested may
access "Business in the
Green" via the
Department's home page

Trek Ten Trails Continues


Friends of the Parks

"Messy room" it's
the one phrase that will
get the parents of virtual-
ly any teenager, boy or
girl, nodding in under-
standing and rolling their
eyes in frustration. It's
also a common cause of
teen-parent disagree-
ments.
So, looking for a magic
way to make a teen's
messy room problem dis-
appear?
Lots of luck.
But while there's no
miracle solution, "messy
room" stress and frustra-
tion can be reduced.
Start by identifying the
source of your frustration.
After all, your child lives
in the mess, not you.
However, what our frus-
tration comes from is
what the mess says about
us: about our authority
over our offspring and
our effectiveness as a par-
ent. If our child can't see
the mess and won't hear
our requests to clean it
up, are we failing as par-
ents?
For your teen, however,
the issue isn't the mess,
but privacy and autono-
my. Although we want our
children to develop inde-


pendence, it's disappoint-
ing to see it express itself
in ways such as a messy
room. However, to your
teen that room is his or
her domain, and keeping
it as desired is a way of
being independent.
So, instead of feeling
frustrated and arguing,
accept that this is part of
the developmental
process. Try setting sensi-
ble family rules that make
it easier to live with a
messy bedroom.
Rule one is that while
messy is okay, life threat-
ening is not. Bug attrac-
tors, like old food wrap-
pers and dirty dishes,
aren't acceptable. You can
close the door on untidy,
but unhealthy is a prob-
lem.
You can also set sim-
ple, acceptable rules for
family use areas. Cleaning
up after oneself in the
kitchen, or getting that
backpack out of the hall-
way, are rules teens can
understand as reason-
able, even when they see
a clean bedroom as
unfair.
It also doesn't help to
clean up for your teen.
That just breeds anger

and the lesson that once
it's messy enough, you'll
do the job for them.
But do offer help. Many
teens literally don't know
where to start once the
mess gets too big. Suggest
ways to break that big
task into smaller ones.
Offer storage and sorting
tips.
There are lots of causes
worth pushing hard for
with your teen. A messy
room is seldom one.
Someday that room will
get cleaned. A new friend
or the frustration of con-
stantly wrinkled clothes
or missing treasures
might be the motivation.
Or not. Then that clean
room will just have to
wait until he or she moves

Jackets Headed to Playoffs


By NEAL DUNCAN
Sports Correspondent

Bartow High School
baseball team played a
must win game Tuesday
night against the Spoto
Spartans in the district
semi-finals game at
Haines City.
Bartow sent Gage
Upthegrove to the mound
to pitch for the Jackets.
Upthegrove walked the
first batter of the game.
He then lost the grip on
the ball with it sailing over
Jacket catcher Jose
Henao; this allowed the
runner to advance to sec-
ond base with no outs.
The runner then stole
third, before Upthegrove
fielded a come-backer
that he tossed to Josh
Delph at first who made a
great scope on the ball for
the first out. Upthegrove
got a huge strikeout for
the next out and then
fielded another come-
backer to the mound to
kill the threat.
Bartow would strand a
couple of runners in the
bottom of the first, send-
ing the game to the sec-
ond with no score. The
game would remain
scoreless throughout the
second inning.
In the top of the third,
Spoto was able to load the
bases with only one out.
With the bases juiced, a
Spartan batter hit the ball
hard off the glove of
Ambrose Young, scoring
two runs as the ball went
into center field. Then the
runner on second was
moved over to third on a
fly ball that was caught by
Josh Register in center
field.
Spoto ran themselves
out of the inning when
the runner on first broke
early for second.
Upthegrove tossed the
ball to Young; he then
threw a bullet to Henao at
home to nail the Spartan
runner who tried to score
during the rundown.
Bartow would once
again come up empty on
the offensive end in the
third, but would still
manage to retire the
Spartans in order in the
top of the fourth, still
trailing 2-0.
In the bottom of the
fourth, Upthegrove came
to the plate with one out
and singled to left. He
then moved to second as


Delph singled to left as
well. Both Jacket runners
would score on a Henao
triple to right center,
evening the score 2-2.
The Jackets would take
their first lead on a soft
pop-up over the first
baseman, scoring Joey
Schley who was pinch-
running for Henao.
Buddy Putnam would
move the runners over on
a fielders choice.
Both runs would come
in on an infield single by
Josh Allen making the
score 5-2 in favor for
Bartow. That would be all
Bartow would get, but the
momentum had shifted
in the Jacket's favor.
The top of the fifth
would see Spoto- get a run
back on a home run blast
to right center field that
drilled the score board
making the score 5-3
Bartow. '
Neither team would
threaten again until the
top of the seventh inning.
Since Bartow was the
home team, Spoto's last
chance to keep their sea-
son alive was going to
have to be accomplished
against Register who had
come in the game in relief
for Upthegrove who had
struck out 10 Spartan bat-
ters in six innings.
Register would walk
the first Spartan he would
face. He would get the
second batter out on
three straight pitches for
the first out. Register
would then retire the next
batter on four pitches.
With two outs, Spoto's
batter who had homered
earlier was up, with the
Jackets one out away
from going to the district
championship game.
Register would fall behind
3-1 before throwing a
strike to run the count
full. The following pitch
would be ball four, giving
Spoto runners on first
and second with two outs.
Register loaded the
bases full as the next
Spartan batter drew
another walk. With things
getting very tense,
Register was able to get
the next Spoto batter to
fly out to Delph in center
for the final out of the
game.
The win raised the
Jackets' record to 17-8 as
they headed to their
fourth straight district
championship game.


"It wasn't easy; we had
to fight for it", said Bartow
Head Coach Brian Reves.
"Gage (Upthegrove) bat-
tled and got the big outs
when he needed to and
Josh (Register) did a nice
job closing it out."
The championship
game against Lake Wales,
who defeated Haines City
in the early game Tuesday
night, was scheduled to
be played on Friday night.
However, the game was
moved to Thursday night
because the two schools
were scheduled to com-
pete Friday night in the
softball regional semi-
inals.
The baseball matchup
was a tale of two games.
Bartow would take their
1-0 lead to the top of the
fourth inning where the
wheels fell off hard for the
Jackets. Bartow gave up
five runs in the inning
with three Jacket errors
causing most of the dam-
age.
It was clearly evident
that it would not be the
Jackets' night after watch-
ing the bottom of the fifth
inning. Bartow would get
its first batter on base
before getting rolled up in
a 6-4-3 double play that
seemed to kill any brief
momentum for the
Jackets.
A flicker of hope was
given to the Bartow faith-
ful as they would get
another runner on with
power hitter Kelly Green
coming to the plate.
Green promptly
crushed the ball to left
center field with what
seemed to be a certain
two run home run that
would put the Jackets
within two runs of the
Highlanders.
The wind was blowing
fiercely from left field to
right field and cut down
the ball just short of the
fence, scoring the runner
from first on the double
for Green. From that
moment, it seemed it
would be the
Highlanders' night. It
ended up being that as
the final score was 5-2.
With the loss, Bartow
will hit the road to take on
an opponent that will be
determined this week-
end. Jacket fans should
contact Bartow High
School at 534-7400 for
game date, time and loca-
tion.


BARTOW HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS' TENNIS team swept the district champi-
onship at the Lake Wales City Court. Winning all matches, the team score was 7-0.
Team members are (from left): Shea Perez (#4), Charley DeJesus (#2), Coach Cathy
Lewis, Stephanie Bandyk (#5), Maggie Holland (#1), Emily Bhutiani (#3), and

tournament in Sanford. (Photo provided by Mariann Holland)
