Law protects Wilkes but
Limnn said he was

By PEGGY KEHOE

STAFv WRITrERS
It's a case of"he said, he said" that
ended in one life nearly being lost when
another man perceived a threat to his
own life at his own home.
Under Florida's "Castle Doctrine"
Richard "Jeff" Wilkes was found to be
justified in the shooting of longtime
friend Joe Lunn after a couple of months
of "trash talking," misunderstandings
and anger came to a head on Aug. 7.
Lunn went to Wilkes home that after-
noon and his actions and words were
perceived by Wilkes to be a serious
enough threat that he pulled his hand-
gun from his pocket and shot Lunn.
In a letter to Lunn dated Oct. 27,
Assistant State Attorney James Wagner
noted that "under Florida law, a person

Attorneys in the prosecutor's office

Wagner wrote. Based on the review,
"the use of deadly force in this instance
would be authorized under the law."
The Castle Doctrine took effect in
Florida in Oct. 1, -'i''., despite some
fearing it would turn the Sunshine State

states have some form of the Castle

a person has the right to protect his or
her castle. According to Chip Thulberry,
spokesman for the State Attorney's Of-
fice, no matter what an individual may
feel about the law, the state is clear on
its purpose.
"There is no fine line here as some
may expect because this is a fairly com-

More people at center, but shopping still stagnant


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

The number of people at the
Golden Gate Shopping Center has
increased noticeably since Publix
opened its doors Oct. 24 but traffic
to the neighboring businesses hasn't
happened yet, shop owners say.
But they also believe the customers
will come back to them.
"The people are going there but
they don't seem to be coming here,"
said Subway Manager Irene Olsze-
wski.
She said there usually is a line of
20 to 25 customers at the store at
lunchtime and in the first week since
Publix reopened since it closed six
months ago for a redesign, that hasn't
returned.
"But," she was quick to add, "even-
tually they'll come back."
She said Subway gets a lot of cus-
tomers from the county courthouse
and Polk County Administration
Building, and though the number of
customers has declined, the sales are
fine.
"I'd say we're down a smidge (in
customers), but we're still doing bet-
ter (in sales) than last year."
A couple of doors down from
Subway, at Peterson's Cleaners,
employees there said the traffic has
increased, but they're still waiting for
the clientele coming to that location
to return. The company has been in
business for 50 years and the Golden
Gate Shopping Center is one of four
stores it has.
"The people coming here hasn't
picked up and we're praying that
it will, but there seems to be more
people (in the shopping center)," said
Mary Woolard.
Ruth Peterson said the shop in
Golden Gate lost some business
when the sheriff's office moved from
Broadway to its office in Winter


Haven and that could be lending to
a drop in business there. The store at
Golden Gate attracts regulars from
the county buildings, while people
who live in Bartow generally use the
store on Summerlin Street.
Mike Samler, the manager of Sprin-
gleaf Financial, said he's certainly
noticed more traffic at the shopping
center in the last week, but business
for him is about the same. However,
he added, being a lending institu-
tion he doesn't get the same kind of
people that go to the other stores
- restaurants and retail shops as
much.
"I have seen more traffic in the
plaza, but those aren't the people
who come here. We're a financial
store ... the traffic like that isn't for
us," he said.
Employees at Family Dollar Store
said the number of people who have
come to the store has increased in
the last week, but the sales have not
seemed to improve. That could be to
the slow economy.
"It's really the same," one employee
who didn't want his name to be
used but who has worked there both
before and after the Publix closed
and reopened. "It's not slow, but it's
not the flow we anticipated. I think it
could be from the economy."
The increase in traffic could be
good news for John Waltz, who
moved into the old Walgreen's loca-
tion to sell the shelves and leftover
refrigerators and such there. For the
next two weeks, Waltz, who bought
the old equipment from Walgreen's, is
selling the items to anyone for about
60 to 70 percent less than what they
would pay for them regularly.
He hired eight people at $8 an hour
to help him move items people buy
from the store. He said, for example,
he'll sell three feet of shelving and the
stand for $29.
That former Walgreen's, to the west

of Publix, is empty now and no one is
currently seeking to move in. There
are also a handful of empty store-
fronts on the other side of Publix.
Waltz said there are about 280 sec-
tions of shelves to sell, coolers from
the liquor store and anything else
people may be interested in.
The new Walgreen's has all new
equipment in it. Overall it was cheap-
er to put in new shelves, cooling
equipment and the rest rather than to
hire people to move it, get trucks to
move them and reinstall old shelves.

week when asked about additional steps

Trick or what?


How many words or phrases of yes-
teryear (that's the era when you and I
wereyoung, Bubba) have no meaning
today?
What would your grandchildren do
if you asked them to "wind up" a car
window? (For that matter, why would
the window be down unless the A/C
were out?)
Or if you were having a heart attack
and pleaded, "Dial 9-1-1!" Dial? You
want a bar of soap at a time like this?
Or in another context, how would they
respond to the familiar television warn-
ing of our day, "Don't touch that dial!"
Would they understand if you told
them about the days when you and
your main squeeze listened to records
(whether the original 78s, the small 45s,
or the miracle of an entire album on
a 33) played on aVictrola? CB radio?
Quadraphonic sound? Eight-track
tapes? Super-highways (any road more
than two lanes wide)? Icebox? Power
Glide? Dynaflow? Skate keys? Oleo?
All this came back to mind as I heard
the three or four dozen kids who visited
our home on Halloween night quietly
say (often at the prompting of a parent)
"Trick or treat."
How many of them understood that
this was a form of genteel extortion that
required payment of tribute to avoid
retribution?
In my day, it was not unheard of for
a trick-or-treater to have around his
neck a bar of soap suspended from a
rope, spinning it around in a menacing
gesture that suggested the possibility
of soaping windows, or worse, screens,
should a treat not be forthcoming.
I was even known to carry a few
toothpicks with which to-jam a doorbell

had such doorbells always were well
equipped with treats).
Long forgotten by most folks, the
Crickette Club Halloween parade and
carnival tradition in Bartow was insti-
tuted as a wholesome alternative for
soap-toting youngsters on All Hallows
Eve.
It proved effective, even though
these days, the parade and carnival are
scheduled before Halloween, leaving
Oct. 31 for trick-or-treating.
Today's young innocents think a bar
of soap is only for washing hands or
taking a bath, and I shall not tell them
otherwise.
When you complain about today's
generation of kids (would you really do
a thing like that?) give them credit for
a Trick-or-Treat request that carries no
threat of a consequence.
And for a frequent (if parent-inspired)
"Thank you."
(S. L. Frisbie is retired, from journal-
ism and from trick-or-treating. He
remembers with great fondness the late
Betsy Ravenel, godmother to his three
children and longtime Polk County
Democrat employee, who used to talk
about the days when her husband, Tom,
was in the Air Force, assigned to MacDill
Air Force Base. On Halloween, the adults
would go door to door, shouting "Trick
or Drink!")

Bartow has been aggressively marketing its
downtown to new businesses.
We still have a long way to go, though.
Job growth will return slowly, Snaith said,
and the housing rebound will be tied to the
job market.
As for the building sector, his take was that
construction employment levels "will not
come back to where they were for decades."
On the other hand, retirees may feel more
confident about spending on goods and
homes due to the bounce in the stock mar-
ket. That would be very positive for Florida.
As Snaith said, local governments have
to keep doing what they can to keep them-
selves in the pool, to hold and strengthen
their positions for better times in the future.
Or, to put it another way, just keep pad-
dling as best as you can.

An attempt to pocket $100
from the cash register at her
workplace landed a clerk at
a local laundromat in a lot of
hot water.
Ruth Plaisimond, 42, of 2511
S. Crystal Lake Drive in Lake-
land phoned Bartow Police
Wednesday at approximately
6:58 a.m. from New Concept
Coin Laundry located at 1025
N. Broadway Ave. in Bartow.
Plaisimond stated that she was
working her shift as a clerk for
the laundry facility and that a
robbery had just occurred.
When officers and detectives


arrived, Plaisi-
mond was lying
on the ground
near the rear of
the building and
told officers that
she had been
struck on the
head by the thief PLASIMOND
and was ren-
dered unconscious. She was
immediately transported by
ambulance to Bartow Regional
Medical Center while detec-
tives investigated the robbery.
During the course of the in-
vestigation, Detective William
Lawson and Detective David
Reynolds were.able to view


security surveillance from the
business and found no such
robbery had taken place. De-
tective Reynolds immediately
went to BRMC to interview
Plaisimond and alerted her to
the fact that the video from
the business was in contrast to
her claim about a robbery. At
that point, Plaisimond admit-
ted she had fabricated the
story and that she had taken
$100 from the register the
previous night.
Plaisimond was arrested and
charged with false reports to
law enforcement, a first degree
misdemeanor, and petit theft,
a first degree misdemeanor.

extent in which a person can defend
themselves against a forcible entry to
their dwelling."
, Although the law has accomplished
its goal in countless instances where
citizens have used deadly force to
protect themselves in their homes or
vehicles without prosecution, there are
still gray areas.
One such case took place in Florida
where a drunk stumbled onto the wrong
property and went up to the door only
to get shot by the fearful owner. The
killer was not prosecuted, as dictated by
the Castle Doctrine.

Lunn: Shot for no reason
"I'm going to fight this until the day I
'die," Lunn said. "That guy shot me for
no reason. It's an injustice, is what it is."
Lunn was shot three times. The first
bullet went through his liver and hit his
diaphragm and lung, he said. Lunn says
he turned and was trying to run away
when he was struck by another bullet in
the right shoulder and went down.
"I don't remember anything after that,
but I was shot in the left temple," Lunn
said. "I laid in the front yard," bleeding
to death. Polk County emergency re-
sponders revived him in the ambulance,
Lunn said, and he died two times at
Lakeland Regional Medical Center.
Before he was put in the ambulance
Lunn told Bartow Police Sgt. William Re-
all, "Don't believe anythinghe says," ac-
cording to the investigative report. Reall
responded, "What should I believe?"
Lunn said, "He shot me for no reason."
Wilkes told Reall that day that, "I am
the victim here; it was self-defense,"
adding "I was in fear for my life; I didn't


want to shoot him."
Lunn was in a coma for two weeks
and, according to the police report
suffered a fractured rib, collapsed lung,
fracture of the C-l vertebra, a fractured
scapula, lacerated liver, several facial
fractures and lost sight in his left eye.
Lunn underwent reconstructive sur-
gery on his face while in the hospital for
31 days and still carries three bullets in
his body. He said he was told by a doc-
tor in the hospital that he also had blunt
force trauma to his head from being hit
by an object.
The shooting occurred after a dispute
between the longtime friends at Wilkes'
house. Police retrieved some text mes-
sages and talked to members of Wilkes'
family who told of a dispute over Wilkes
blaming Lunn for his son having to
drive a truck from River Ranch although
he has a suspended license, and over
Lunn's truck being in Wilkes' yard for
repairs by his son.
Wilkes, 50, told Bartow police he shot
in self-defense after Lunn, then 49, went
to Wilkes' house on Aug. 7, and start-
ing yelling, then stepped on a cooler
and tried to climb the chain link fence
around the backyard, according to the
report. Wilkes also said Lunn punched
him in the face, knocking his glasses off.
Wilkes told police he bent down to
get his glasses, and thought Lunn was
leaving, but that Lunn turned around
and came back, saying the "fence ain't
stopping me."
Wilkes pulled a semi-automatic, .380
caliber handgun from his pocket and
shot Lunn, then called 911, the report
said. Wilkes has a concealed weapons
permit and told police he always carries
a gun.
The report summary by Detective Bill


Lawson says, "Lunn fell down off the
fence and fell down to the pavement."
Lunn denied he tried to go over the
fence. "I leaned over the fence to look at
my truck," Lunn told The Polk County
Democrat. Wilkes' son R.J. was going to
do some work on Lunn's truck. Wilkes
had said he wanted the truck removed
from his yard, and Lunn said he leaned
over to see whether the front axle had
been welded yet, so he could move the
truck to his own yard.
"I never touched him," Lunn said,
saying that there were no marks on his
fist or Wilkes' face. "There's no way I hit
him. He was on the other side of a six-
foot fence."
Police found Lunn's fingerprints on
the fence, but Lunn said, "I have leaned
on that fence a thousand times" during
many visits to the Wilkes' home. Be-
cause "the dogs jump on you, I don't go
in; I just stay outside and talk to RJ."
Though he lost 55 pounds in the hos-
pital, at the time of the incident Lunn
weighed 220 pounds. "If I tried to jump
that fence, it ain't gonna hold," he said.
"I would bent it.
"I won't lie to you," Lunn added. "He
cussed me and I cussed him" that day,
but said he had no warning of what was
going to happen.
"I can see him pulling the gun and
thinking 'you're not going to shoot me.'
It wasn't to Warn me ... he just cocked
that thing and started firing. If he had
said 'get out of my yard or I'll shoot
you,' I would have boogied."
Despite repeated attempts, Wilkes
could not be reached for comment.
However, he spoke to The Polk County
Democrat a few days after the shooting.
"I'll never get over it," said Wilkes
then. "It's not something I'll ever forget.


It's the first time something like this has
ever happened in my life. I'm a Chris-
tian man who loves Jesus and goes to
church."
No one witnessed the shooting, but
did hear angry voices and expletives,
witnesses told police, then three "pop-
ping" sounds.
Lunn gave a statement to Lawson in
the hospital two days after he awoke
from his coma. He said he told the de-
tective that he "was not thinking prop-
erly; I just had a bullet go through my
head. I haven't talked to anyone since
then," Lunn said."It just doesn't seem
fair that I didn't have a chance after I
got out of the hospital and was thinking
clearly to make a statement."

Feels injustice occurred
After receiving Wagner's letter Tues-
day, Lunn said he was in a state of shock
after learning that no charges would be
filed. "I don't know what to do. I feel that
I have not been treated fairly and an
injustice occurred."
One of Lunn's lifelong dreams was to
become a pilot. "I finally achieved that
and now it's been taken away" because
of losing sight in one eye. A mainte-
nance supervisor for the city of Lake-
land, Lunn used up all his days off while
in the hospital. He doesn't understand
why Wilkes' word is being taken over
his.
"I read the Bible; I'm a Christian
man," Lunn said. He quoted Dr. Martin
Luther King, Jr., who said, "Injustice
anywhere is a threat to justice every-
where."
"Why would you have to shoot
somebody three times?" Lunn asked,
wondering why he survived. "I guess the
good Lord wasn't done with me yet."

EBOOK: Libraries gain huge fanbase


FROM PAGE 1A

less visible than it is now. Although li-
brary eBooks were accessible on Barnes
& Noble's Nook, the Sony Reader,
smartphones, laptops and other de-
vices, Kindle users felt left out. On Sept.
21, Amazon announced that it was now
going to open up its popular Kindle
device to library eBooks, making Kindle
books available at more than 11,000 lo-
cal libraries around the country.
Since Kindle is the world's biggest
selling e-reader, this move broke the
library eBook market wide open by
giving it massive exposure. Demand
for library eBooks will increase, pub-
lishing analysts predict, estimating
that roughly 15 million e-readers will
be purchased in the United States this
year.
Winter Haven Library was the first to
offer eBooks in Polk County in Novem-
ber of last year. The concept has since
caught on and is offered in seven more
libraries in the county. Using a sub-
scription to OverDrive, a global leader
in digital books for libraries with sup-
port for iPod, iPhone, iPad, Android,
Sony Reader, Kindle, and thousands of
other mobile devices, anyone with an
e-reader device can access thousands
of book titles with just one require-
ment a library card. Simply browse
categories including audio books by
genre, subject or author name, choose
your books, download them to your e-
reader and when the determined loan
period is up, the file simply dissolves,
making it a thing of the past to have
to worry about returning your library
books on time to avoid the penalty of a


late charge.
"Some people have a stigma about
electronic books taking the place of
a real book in a person's hands," said
Beman-Cavallaro. "I tell them that eB-
ooks haven't taken the place of a book,
but put thousands more into your
hands. You can access countless titles
from every category you can think of,
download books of your choice in mere
seconds and do it all from the comfort
of your own home or even when you're
on the go. It makes reading easier,
which encourages people to read even
more. This is something that is here to
stay."
Since Beman-Cavallaro teaches com-
puter classes at the library, he is also
in charge of assisting patrons with the
process of getting started with eBooks.
While most of his client base are the
older adults who aren't as tech-savvy
as the younger generation, he claims
their enthusiasm for the new technol-
ogy is generally "off the charts," with
fiction being the most popular genre in
demand by readers.
"They get a taste of it and then
they're hooked," said Beman-Cavallaro.
"When they see how easy it is to down-
load eBooks to their devices and the
brand new world that this opens up to
them, it's like seeing a kid with a brand
new toy. They go from curious begin-
ners to avid eBook fans who obviously
can't get enough of it."
Despite the many advantages to ac-
cessing thousands of books on a device
small enough to fit into your purse,
pocket or briefcase, there are still some
gray areas to this new amazing avenue
of technology. Beman-Cavallaro points


out that it is not inexpensive as Nooks,
Kindles, and other e-reading devices
can range from the low hundreds of
dollars on up.
Also, in this economy people often
can't afford a higher electric bill or
Internet access. Although the Winter
Haven Library lends iPads in-house to
their patrons, if a person does not have
an e-reading device or a way to access a
computer in other areas of the county,
the amazing world that eBooks puts at
a person's fingertips will unfortunately
be out of reach.
More than 64 percent of libraries re-


port they are the only source of free In-
ternet access in their communities with
70 percent of libraries reporting public
use of Internet computers increased in
2010. More than 74 percent of librar-
ies offer software and other resources
to help patrons create resumes and
employment material.
"The boom of eBooks hasn't nega-
tively impacted the number of people
we see here at the Bartow Library at
all," he said. "Libraries aren't going
anywhere just because eBooks are now
available. If anything, our popularity is
soaring because of it."

Women's Care Center prepares clients for independence


By STEVE GITHENS
CORRESPONDENT

"One of the great ministries in Bar-
tow" is the Women's Care Center Rotar-
ian Rob Patrick told fellow club mem-
bers as he introduced the center's
Mary Smith and Lisa Olinger at the
Oct. 26 Rotary Club meeting.
As director Mary Smith has been run-
ning the day-to-day operation of the
Women's Care Center for 11 years and
Lisa Olinger a driving force in and of
herself-- serves as the chairperson of
the board, Patrick said. He has served
on the Board of Directors of the Care
Center himself for several years.
Smith and Olinger tag-teamed the
presentation and said that women
of any age are welcome to stay at the
Center while boys up to age 6 may stay


there. Groups and families have spon-
sored dormitory rooms in the back wing
of the facility, and each of those spon-
sors has continued to take care of the
needs of the room.
The Women's Care Center is open
to women who have needs that have
come about due to a divorce, domestic
abuse, or some other difficult situa-
tion. The women are "damaged goods,"
the speakers said. When a woman tirst
comes in, she has an interview with
Smith and the house mother. From that
interview a determination is made as to
whether she can take advantage of the
services that are offered by the Women's
Care Center and a contract is signed by
the three parties.
The goal is to offer transitional not
permanent assistance for a period of
six months. An extension can be offered


for an additional six months if the client
is going to a program, such as school,
that requires more time to finish. Mary
Frisbie and other members of the Zonta
Club have been actively engaged in
providing financial planning courses to
the women. From this course the clients
learn a good bit about financial stability.
In sum, the Women's Care Center does
what it can to prepare the clients for
independent living.
One of the hardest tasks that the staff
has is to ask someone to leave. The staff
does their best for clients as they set
them up with "care packages," which
include everything from beds to kitchen
goods, when they move out.
The budget for the operation is fund-
ed 50 percent through United Way and
50 percent through funds raised in the
community. That means that $6,000-


$7,000 have to be raised every month in
order to support the operation.
Specific needs that the Center cur-
rently needs include any monetary
donations, paper products and canned
food. They are also looking for vol-
unteers to help in a clean-up day in
the garage. Other assistance they are
looking for includes having the facility
pressure washed.
A motorcycle-car poker run fundrais-
er is coming up on Saturday, Nov. 5. A
golf tournament is scheduled to be held
later in the year. Tours of the facility will
be given during an open house that will
be held on Saturday, Dec. 10.
Both Olinger and Smith said that it
is an organization that has positively
impacted the lives of the people it has
touched. As Smith said, "It's not a job,
it's a mission."


Polk Master Gardeners win awards . "t,..


Polk County Master Gardeners earned
international and state acclaim in Octo-
ber for educational and service projects
sponsored in Polk County.
David Shibles, Ornamental Hor-
ticulture Agent for the Polk County
Extension Service, summed up the
accomplishments of the group as "re-
wards well-deserved for the dedicated
volunteer work that Polk County Master
Gardeners do on a regular basis."
Polk County Master Gardeners won
the 2011 International Master Gar-
dener Conference "Search for Excel-
lence" Award for its Agri-Fest horti-
culture project which teaches fourth
graders about seeds and plants, and
the consumer products that they
produce in the county's agricultural
economy.
The first place award in the youth
project category was presented by
Monica David, SFE Chair; of the Uni-
versity of Illinois during the organi-
zation's conference held Oct. 11-14
in Charleston, W.Va. to Polk County
Master Gardener Carol Leffler and
Polk County Urban Horticulturist
Shibles. Leffler gave a short presenta-
tion about Agri-Fest, on behalf of the
Polk County Master Gardeners, to
1,000 Master Gardeners attending the
conference.
Agri-Fest "Horticulture" is a program
that attracts 6,000 fourth graders and
325 teachers annually in the spring. For
12 years students have been coming to
the Polk County Extension Service from
throughout the county which is com-
prised of eight agricultural stations.
Although the SFE Award was given for
the Master Gardeners' project relating
to horticulture, students also visit other
disciplines including citrus, blueberries,
honeybees, livestock, forestry, phos-
phates, small farms, and the water cycle
to learn about the local agricultural
economy.
Polk County has experienced a
43 percent increase in population in the
last decade. Most students are less likely
to have direct experience with the his-
torically agrarian lifestyle that is a basis
of the Polk County economy, despite
the continued importance of agriculture
in their lives.
Polk County Master Gardeners rede-
signed the horticulture program in 2010,
to focus on giving students hands-on
experience and developed a teaching
tool called "The Market Basket" to intro-
duce students to the direct relationship
between horticulture and their everyday
lives. Students also potted a plant to take


home. The result is that students find
themselves learning to appreciate plants
and beginning to think about land and
water conservation as the basis for suc-
cess in their environment.

Master Gardeners shine
at awards conference
The State Master Gardener Confer-
ence in Orlando on Oct. 24-26 recog-
nized state winners for projects in two
categories for projects during the 2010-
2011 year.
The state recognizes 12 categories
annually for excellent Master Gardener
service to the state of Florida. Polk
County was awarded sole recognition in
the categories of "Community Beautifi-
cation" and "Demonstration Garden."
The awards were presented by state
Master Gardener Coordinator, Tom
Wichman of the University of Florida.
The Community Beautification State
Award was given for the "Little Gem
Magnolia Project" in Fort Meade. Debra
Howell worked with the Chamber of
Commerce and city staff, along with
Master Gardeners Pat Farris and Maria
Carillo, to make this project a reality.
The citywide project, "Fort Meade
PRIDE," resulted in plantings of Little
Gem magnolias and vinca in large brick
street-planters, beach sunflowers at
public intersections, a butterfly garden
at Peace River Park, and a program for
community groups to adopt areas for

COUNTY REPORT


Auburndale officer knows


she's lucky to be alive

Deputy wants to return to duty despite

being shot three times in shootout


By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
The first thing you notice about
Auburndale police Officer Stacy Booth
is her genuine smile. The scars on her
right arm and the motorized wheel-
chair are the only visible giveaways that
she nearly lost her life Sept. 2 after be-
ing shot three times while responding
to a 911 call.
In a press conference held at the
Auburndale Police Department Thurs-
day, Booth answered media questions
for the first time since the night she
was critically wounded. When asked if
she would go back and undo it all if she
could, a spirit of survival and strong
faith emerged over any anticipated
bitterness.
"Undo it?" Booth echoed. "I believe
in faith and that everything happens for
a reason. If it weren't me, it would have
been somebody else. I'm glad it was
me, instead."
Booth's shift that night was just like
any other until she responded to a
domestic violence call at 413 Diamond
Ridge Drive in Auburndale, the home
of Michael W. Lester. Although his wife
and young daughter had already vacat-
ed the residence after an argument be-
tween spouses led to physical violence,
Lester was armed and ready with three
loaded weapons and more than 1,000
rounds of ammunition when Booth ap-
proached the front door. Seconds later,
before ever making contact, Booth was
the target of a barrage of bullets from a
SKS assault rifle.
' Booth, 26, who started with the
Auburndale Police Department April 5,
2010, took three hits; one in her right
arm, one in the abdomen and one
in her holster, then managed to drag
herself to a neighbor's garage while
calling for backup. Several law enforce-
ment agencies responded along with
the Polk County Sheriff's Office SWAT
team to try to negotiate with Lester to
exit the house peacefully. The suspect
continued to shoot 11 more rounds of
ammunition' prompting the evacuation
of residents in nearby homes. When
Lester refused to come out as ordered,
the SWAT team dispensed gas canisters
into the home and minutes later made
their capture at about 1 a.m.
Lester was booked into the Polk
County Jail where he is charged with
four counts of attempted murder of
a law enforcement officer, one count
possession of a firearm while engaged
in a felony, one count shooting within a
dwelling, one count aggravated battery
and one count resisting arrest without
violence.
"I didn't need the doctors or any-
one else to tell me I was lucky to be
alive," said Booth. "I'm trained and I
know how quickly a person can bleed
out from gunshot wounds and I know
I'm lucky to be here. The whole time
I was laying there after it happened,
all I could do was think of my mother
and fiance. I thought it was unfair that
the two most important people in my
life wouldn't have the chance to say
goodbye."
To date, Booth has endured six
surgeries and anticipates another on
her abdomen in the next six months


followed by lengthy physical therapy
with the hope of eventually returning
to duty. She described how she has lost
sensation in her right hand and can no
longer pick things up, as well as having
a difficult time sitting up straight be-
cause of the damage to her abdomen.
Just recently, she had two open bullet
holes that needed packing and unpack-
ing by her mother and fiance who have
been her full-time caretakers and are
considered her "unsung heroes." Both
were present at the press conference as
Booth faced the cameras.
"I didn't write anything down to say
today," said Booth. "I decided to speak
straight from the heart and say thank
you to everyone including the people
that were out there the night of my
accident, all the agencies, Auburndale,
Winter Haven, the Sheriff's Office, and
medical professionals. I couldn't have
asked for a better experience, which
sounds weird after such a tragic situ-
ation, but really the turnout couldn't
have been any better."
Booth spoke of the strength she
received from the community where
more than 3,500 people sent posts to her
prayer page and 500-600 friends have
been added to her Facebook page. Even
now, Booth smiles as she explains that
prayer is still coming in from as far away
as London and from Fort Lauderdale.
With much being shared about her
physical condition, Booth acknowl-
edged there was a process of emotional
healing, as well. She described being
fearful of leaving the hospital, which
became her comfort zone, and being
jumpy over little sounds like a rock
hitting a window. By taking what she
referred to as "baby steps" and facing
fears head on, she is determined to
conquer any anxiety and hesitations to
regain control of her life again. Still, she
states, the hardest part of all was what
her family had to go through.
As for her feelings toward her assail-
ant who nearly cut her life short, there
was no trace of anger or resentment.
. "I-can't comment on him as a person
or dwell-on it all saying 'I hate that guy' or
it would just get me down," said Booth.
"I don't know what he was thinking and
do believe good people do bad things. I
must move on and that's what I've done,
but I do believe there was definitely
someone watching over me that day."


By KIM WILMATH
ST. PETERSBURG TIMES

The University of South Florida says its
Lakeland campus is overstating its avail-
able assets by $62 million and making a
promise it may not be able to keep that
students could transfer to another USF
institution in the wake of a split.
Those were among several concerns
outlined in a new critique of USF Poly-
technic's secession plan, added to the two
dozen concerns outlined last week about
optimistic growth projections and unclear
cost explanations.
While USF president Judy Genshaft has
remained notably silent in the indepen-
dence debate the past few months, staff


SunRail moves forward,

but minority contracting questioned


FLORIDA NEws SERVICES
The Department of Transporta-
tion said Thursday it has completed
the purchase of the 61-mile SunRail
commuter rail corridor owned by CSX,
allowing construction to start on the
central Florida commuter railroad.
CSX, meanwhile, said they'll spend
a half billion on upgrades over several
years in the state.
"Our partnership with CSX, and to-
day's announcement of their increased
infrastructure investment in Florida to
$500 million over the next 8 years, will
improve the movement of freight and
commuters throughout the state, will
increase the capacity and efficiency of
Florida's ports, and will make Florida
the best place.to live, work, and visit,"
Secretary of Transportation Ananth
Prasad said in a statement.
Also Thursday, Prasad and officials in
the governor's office declined to respond
to a letter from a central Florida state
senator who says minorities weren't
involved enough in the SunRail project.
Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, sent a


letter to Gov. Rick Scott asking him to
put a freeze on the awarding of new
contracts for SunRail. Siplin said only
one African-American subcontractor
had gotten a contract out of the new
project. The Florida Department of
Transportation has shown complete
disregard for the small and minority
businesses and particularly African
American-owned businesses in Central
Florida in its awarding of contracts for
the SunRail project, Siplin said.
So far, Scott hasn't placed any freeze
on contracting. Phase I of the project,
which will begin now with the pur-
chase of the track, will include track
upgrades, signal improvements and
the building of stations and an opera-
tions control center.
The CSX subsidiary that will build
SunRail expects to create hundreds of
jobs in the area.
In a building phase on SunRail it
will come close to Polk County as the
DeBary to Orlando commuter rail will
end in Poinciana.
DOT said construction will start
before the end of the year.


from her academic affairs and student
success departments have been busy
poking holes in USF Poly's proposal.
"Unfortunately, many USF Polytech-
nic students may not meet USF's admis-
sion criteria," administrators write of USF
Poly's plan to give students a "one-time
only" opportunity to transfer.
The plan states that the branch
campus has $77.4 million in assets. But a
breakdown by USF shows that only $14.5
million in cash and investments on hand
could be used for new initiatives.
The campus says it may hold class-
es in "modular facilities," or trailers, for
at least a decade and possibly up
to 20 years while its new campus is


under construction.
The plan says the new university
would want to join the NCAA, but it
doesn't say which sports it wants or how
much that would cost.
The school says having "talent man-
agement agents" in the place of advisers
will help recruit and retain students. But
USF's review casts doubt on the role of
these employees.
One page of the plan says there is
"sufficient funding in place to start the
new Polytechnic university and continue
its growth through 2016." Yet, a few pages
later, USF Poly states that it will need mil-
lions of dollars to continue growing past
2017.

SCHOOL .



School can get library if you vote for it


Grant will be awarded the
school with the most votes


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOU NTYDEMOCRAT.COM

Vote and vote often and it could help a
private school in Bartow get the money it
needs to build an automated, web-based
library management system.
First Methodist School is seeking a
$50,000 grant from Clorox Company's
Power A Bright Future program to build
a library. And, the way to win the grant is
through a voting contest. People can go to
the website, www.PowerABrightFuture.
com, and vote every day until it ends on
Dec. 9. Anyone older than 13 can vote
once per day.
"Last I checked there were over 1,000
schools that have been nominated," said
Becky Harrison, an office manager at
the school. "It's a popularity contest. The
more people who vote will determine who
wins."
Each school that is nominated has cre-
ated a page to tell about the school and
what it plans to do with the money. First
Methodist School's page says, "the library


will centralize and efficiently track and in-
ventory books, enable students to quickly
search for the books they need, allow
greater access to resources, and enhance
the accelerated reading program."
Harrison said the school has a library
now, but wants to move it to a new room
and update it for the 133 students cur-
rently in the school.
In order to attract voters to the website,
parents and teachers have put links on
their Facebook pages and emails and
fliers were sent to the Board of Direc-
tors. The school has also put ads in the
newspaper.
Whether or not they win the money,
Harrison doesn't know. It's something new.
"It's a learning process," she said. "I'm
hoping and praying we have a chance."
There's no cost involved to vote and cur-
rently First Methodist seems to be doing
OK on the process.
As of Thursday afternoon the school had
258 votes. However, there are dozens of
schools on the list among the more than
1,500 candidates. In the first 22 pages of


the search, St. Ignatius in Cincinnati had
3,737 votes as it is trying to get money for
a parcourse fitness center and improve-
ments to a walking trail.
To vote go to the Clorox page and click
on "Vote Now." Once a person finds the
school or does a search on the page it
takes him or her to, you can click on "Vote
for This." It asks for a name, email address
and how the voter is related to the school.

Words on parade at FMS. First Methodist School's
first through-third grades, taught by Jackie
Stoltz and Elsa Huff, had their annual Vocabu-
lary Parade. The children made learning words
a three-dimensional activity. Each was given a
word, told to learn the definition, and make a
hat depicting the word. They were very creative
and had fun making their hats, the teachers
said.

Words of Comfort
Don't think of the loved one as gone
away their journey's just. begun, life
holds so many facets this earth is
only one.

Just think of the loved one as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how they must be wishing
that we could know today how nothing
but our sadness can really pass away.

And think of the loved one as living
in the hearts of those touched...for
nothing loved is ever lost and they
were loved so much.
E. Brenneman

"History of Theatrical Comedy"
originated when Kerner jokingly
mentioned to a fellow faculty member
that perhaps he should teach a course
far removed from his "Literature of the
Holocaust," such as a course based on .. ,
comedy. To his surprise, Kerner's com- .-. '
ment was well-received and he soon
found himself developing the course.
A course based on comedy was seen
as an opportunity to expand the Col-
lege's literary offerings. .t .
"Professor Kerner's thoughtful ap-
proach to course development has been .
an incredible asset to the College. In .

to Polk State's curriculum, of course,
he has provided our students with -
some truly wonderful opportunities
to broaden their horizons and deepen
their appreciation for the world around
us," said Dr. Ken Ross, vice president of
academic and student services.
While Kerner is readying for the
new challenge of "History of Theatri-
cal Comedy," he is also eager to teach
another semester of his "Literature of
the Holocaust."
Kerner first taught "Literature of
the Holocaust" in spring 2009, but the
course was offered under the generic
"Current Interest Themes in Litera-
ture," a catch-all title that can be used
for an ever-changing slate of classes.
This fall, the College began offering it .
as a standing course, with its own title ,
and course number that will appear on :

Weird chili wins A-C-T cookoff

Event raises money for United Way


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKEHOE@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

There was some sweating' goin' on at
A-C-T Environmental & Infrastructure
Wednesday and it wasn't just from the
bright sun in the cloudless blue sky.
In the company's second Chili Cook
Off, to raise money and awareness for
United Way of Central Florida, three judg-
es tasted and sweated their way through
three categories of chili: mild, hot and
weird. The flavorful event saw a record
number of both entries and attendees
Sand raised $811 in 90 minutes, Director of
Communications Cindy Rodriguez said.
Both A-C-T employees and outsiders
entered pots of chili from longtime family
recipes to their own concoctions. Win-
ning the grand prize was Jeri Cartwright,
who entered her Ohio Sausage Chili in
the weird category. Doug Coleman took
second place honors for his Inferno Chili
in the hot category, and third place was
secured by another hot category favor-
ite, Seven Generations' Heirloom Chili,
entered by Rodriguez.
Judges were County Commissioner
Todd Dantzler, United Way's Debbie Bur-
dett and Clark Environmental's Jim Clark.
This second chili cook off tripled in size
from last year's inaugural event, with 19
chili entries and more than 100 attendees,
who donated to United Way in exchange
for the delights of tasting the varieties
of chili. Last year there were seven chili
entries and approximately 30 attendees.
A-C-T's Human Resources Director,
Jennifer Jonsson, who also serves as the
firm's United Way coordinator, wanted
the Chili Cook Off to become a signature
event for the company's annual fund-
raising campaign one that would have
a broad appeal and involve as many
community members as possible.
Last year's winner was company
President Rob Kincart, whose award "in-
cluded a certificate, bragging rights for a
year, but more importantly, the reward
that comes with contributing to a great
organization that does so much to help
folks in our community," Jonsson said.
"A-C-T has come up with a great
event and I overheard several folks say-
ing that our job as judges was definitely
difficult because the chili was so good
that, really, all the entries could have
been winners,," chili judge Dantzler
said. "From my perspective though, as
tough as the judging may have been,
I'd gladly do it again just to be able to
sample every entry like I did today!"
A-C-T plans to hold the event an-
nually in November. For information
about entering your own winning chili
or attending in 2012, contact A-C-T at
(863) 533-2000. For information about
A-C-T, visit www.A-C-T.com.

Cindy Rodriguez declined to share
her family recipe, but second place


winner Doug Coleman, said, "Sure. I
will give up my secret recipe." Coleman
is a senior project manager at A-C-T.
This is his prize winning recipe.

Inferno Chili

6 cloves of garlic (minced)
2 diced onions (any type)

When onions are translucent, add the
following ingredients on medium heat,
stirring for about 7 minutes.
1 fire roasted red pepper (diced)
1 lb. sirloin beef (minced)
1 small can of smoked chipotle pep-
pers with adobo sauce (mince them)
Add .i cup of water halfway through to
keep mixture from burning on bottom.

chilies
2 cans of chili beans pintoss with

Add remainder of minced garlic,
ground beef, and:

4 tbsp. hot sauce
2 tsp. black pepper
3 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce
4 large bay leaves
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
Bring to boil for about 20 minutes
and then simmer for about 2 hours.
"Easy stuff that brings plenty of heat,"
Coleman says.

Grand prize winner Jeri Cartwright,
who works in billing and collections
for A-C-T, also shared her recipe, which
competed in the weird chili category.
It may be different, but the judges and
diners thought that was a good thing.
Ohio Sausage Chili

browned)

Miners win 13th straight district title


By FRANK DERRICK
CORRI:SONDEiNT
Fort Meade Miners hosted the Car-
dinal Mooney Cougars for the Class 3A
District VI championship Friday night,
and ending up with their 13th district
title and a 21-3 win.
The Miners expected strong com-
petition and they got it as the Cougars
would use a slow-down running game
to eat the clock. A nine-play drive by
the Cougars would move to mid-field
only to end in a punt. The Miners
would follow on their series and get
what appeared to be a 78-yard touch-
down run from Jalen Brown only to
see it nullified with a holding call. The
Miners would still manage the drive to
mid-field only to have Jay Smith inter-
cepted at the Cougar 45-yard line.
The teams alternated possessions
until the Miners got the ball at their
own 23 with eight minutes left. Giv-
ing the ball to six different ball carri-
ers, Fort Meade would go the distance
in 11 plays, scoring on a 15-yard run
from Brown with 5:41 left in the second
quarter. The kick by Jack Cortez was
good and the Miners led 7-0.
The Cougars would get a final pos-
session from mid-field with under a
minute left and would take advantage
of a 21-yard screen pass to get into field
goal range.
The Cougars scored on a 35-yard at-
tempt as the clock expired for the half,
making the score 7-3 Miners.
Coming out of halftime the Miners
immediately grabbed back the mo-
mentum from the Cougars, getting
a 79-yard kickoff return from Chris
Morris, setting up play at the Mooney
14. Seconds later D.J. Clark raced in for
the 14-yard scoring run. Following the
Cortez kick the Miners quickly led 14-3
with 11:41 left in the third quarter.
Cardinal Mooney would put together

down the Cougars went to the air, but
Morris came up big again, intercepting
the pass at the goal line and returning
the ball all the way to the Cougar 33.
Clark would make quick work of the
opportunity, dashing 33 yards on first
down for the score. Cortez was true
again and the Miners led 21-3 with 8:42
left in the third.


The rest of the game would be lit-
tered with Cougar personal fouls as the
frustrated Mooney squad saw the game
slipping away. The Cougars would
have one last scoring chance moving
to a first and goal at the Miner four-
yard line with 10 seconds left. But the
Mooney pass into the end zone would
be picked off by Miner backup corner


back Chris Combee. The Miners' Jay
Smith would take a knee as the Miners
finished in the victory formation for the
fourth consecutive game.
The win runs the Miners' record to
7-2. It also seals a 13th straight district
title for the Class 3A power house. Fort
Meade has not lost a district contest
since 1998.

Three-way tie breaker to be played



for district runner-up


By JEFF RQSLOW
news@frostproofnews.com
A three-way tiebreaker on Monday
will decide who will take second place
in District VI.
With Fort Meade beating Cardinal
Mooney 21-3 Friday it won the division
title and with Lakeland Christian beat-
ing Frostproof 41-35 those two teams
and Cardinal Mooney finish the season
with 1-2 division records.
The tiebreaker will be played at 7
p.m. Monday at Lakeland Christian.
The loss drops Frostproof to 4-5 on
the season while the Vikings improve to
5-4 on the year.
After starting on fire, scoring on their
first two possessions, Frostproof lost
momentum in the first half right after
Lakeland Christian scored its second
touchdown on a 70-yard bomb to se-
nior Mike Whearv.
The momentum continued for the
Vikings through the rest of the game
and though the Bulldogs got to within
seven points, they never got back the
momentum they started with.
Receiving the ball to start the game,
the Vikings gave it up less than two
minutes into the quarter, giving the
Bulldogs their first possession at Lake-
land Christian's 44.
Jake Smith gained 16 yards on the
first play and Tyrone Hamilton followed
that with a 10-yard gain, giving Frost-
proof a first and 10 at the 18. Frostproof
continued to drive and with 6:43 they
had third and goal at the four.
Reggie Allen then ran up the middle
to score the game's first touchdown.
The point after was good and Frost-
proof led 7-0 with 6:39 left in the first
quarter.
On its next possession Lakeland
Christian came back, moving the ball
from their own 38 into the end zone to
tie the game with 3:50 left in the first
quarter.
On the Bulldogs' next possession the
momentum-they started with contin-
ued. After starting at their own 42, the
Bulldogs drove the ball into the end
zone and went up 14-7 on a six-yard
run from Jake Smith with 10:17 left in
the second quarter.
But the momentum turned around
after that. The Vikings took over on
their own 30 and on the first play from
scrimmage Christian Alexander hit
Wheary who ran the ball in on a 70-
yard run.
Though that tied the game at 14-14, it
was almost all Vikings from that point.
Wheary and freshman T.J. Simmons
combined for six touchdowns, each
scoring three in the rest of the game.
Though the Bulldogs got to within
seven points two times in the game,
they never truly threatened the Vikings
lead.
Throughout the first half the score of
the Fort Meade-Cardinal Mooney game
was called out to cheers from the 1,422
in the stands and the teams went into
halftime with Lakeland Christian lead-
ing 28-14.
In the second half it appeared Frost-
proof was going to mount a come-
back. Kaleel Gaines intercepted a pass
and returned the ball 86 yards for a
touchdown with 11:45 left in the third

quarter. Reggie Allen followed the score
with a two-point conversion to make
the score 28-22.
Frostproof then recovered a fumble
on Lakeland Christian's next possession
and though it went to the 24-yard line,
it gave up the ball on a fourth and five.
Lakeland Christian scored on its next
possession on a 33-yard pass to Wheary
and led 35-22.
And, once again, the Bulldogs ap-
peared to be heading back in the right
direction as Marcus Bobb scored on a
72-yard interception return, running
down the sideline with 1:08 left in the
third quarter.
However, Lakeland Christian scored
once more, making the score 41-28.
In the closing minutes of the game,
Frostproof scored once more as Gaines
dove over the defense to score a one-
yard touchdown with 1:33 left in the
game.
After Frostproof takes part in the
tiebreaker it will end the season next
Friday in a game at Auburndale at 7
p.m. in Frostproof.

McCalebb not taking a pass on the pass


By JOELERICKSON
MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERS

AUBURN, Ala. Before this
season, one thing was missing from
Onterio McCalebb's skill set as Au-
burn's change-of-pace option next to
bruiser Michael Dyer.
Blessed with plenty of speed, Mc-
Calebb had been used very little in
the passing game. In his first two
seasons at Auburn, McCalebb only
had 13 catches combined.
McCalebb has become a vital part
of Auburn's passing game this sea-
son. Through eight games, McCalebb
leads the Tigers with 22 catches for
239 yards and a touchdown.
"I remember when I first got here,
he couldn't catch very good," re-
ceiver Travante Stallworth said. "Now
he's become the double threat."
McCalebb's early struggles in the
passing game at the collegiate level
had to be a little puzzling. As the fea-
ture back at Fort Meade High School.
McCalebb had 800 receiving yards as
a junior and senior.
More than anything, though, Mc-
Calebb's impact in the passing game
was limited because former running
back Mario Fannin handled those
duties. When Fannin graduated,
Auburn needed somebody to fill that
role.
McCalebb has handled the transi-
tion with ease.
"He's really developed his game as
far as catching the football, whether
it's bubble screens, screens out of
the backfield, check downs," Auburn


Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District's Alston Tract, which is
part of the Upper Hillsborough Pre-
serve, will be temporarily closed to the
public for hog hunts. Nov. 15-17.
Only permitted hunters will be al-
lowed on the property during these
dates. All of the permits for these hunts
have been sold. The Alston Tract is
at 42144 Deems Road, southeast of
Zephyrhills in Pasco and Polk counties.
The hunt is one of a series of hog
hunts being held on District lands in


head coach Gene Chizik said.
McCalebb rarely catches the ball
downfield, but his speed Stall-
worth said McCalebb is the team's
fastest player has created four
receptions of more than 20 yards this
season.
"I'm not sure how fast he is,"
Chizik said. "I just know he's really
fast."
Before the season began, the
coaches approached McCalebb with
a challenge.
A junior with two years of signifi-
cant playing time, McCalebb needed
to take on more of a leadership
role on a team full of freshmen and
sophomores.
McCalebb responded by being
more vocal.
"Even though we have been having
some down times in games, I still
have to be a leader and a positive
role model," McCalebb said. "1 just
have to be positive and tell them to
keep their head up and keep
fighting."
McCalebb has learned to be more
vocal, but he leads mostly by
example.
Put back on kickoff return in the
third quarter against LSU, McCalebb
took a vicious shot to the head from
Jarvis Landry and stayed down long
enough that Auburn's trainers rushed
on to the field.
McCalebb is only listed at 174
pounds. His frame isn't big enough
to constantly absorb the kind of hit
Landry laid on him Saturday.


an effort to control the damage being
caused to the natural habitats.
The District only allows hogs to be
controlled through hunts when the
damage they cause is at unacceptable
levels, and damage is occurring more
frequently and with increasing severity.
Wild hogs live throughout Florida
in various habitats, but prefer moist
forests and swamps, as well as pine
flatwoods. They are omnivorous and
feed by rooting with their broad snouts,
which can cause extensive damage to

Although Auburn's Onterio McCalebb, a former star in Fort Meade, is know for his rushing touch-
downs (like this 14-yarder recently against the Florida Gators) his work in the passing game is


drawing positive reviews as well.
But McCalebb only missed one
play, and he was mad that the train-
ers asked him to leave the field for
that one play.

Highlanders make comeback to win district


By TRANESE BOSTON
CORRESPONDENT

After last week's disappointing loss
against the Winter Haven Blue Dev-
ils, the Highlanders took to the field
Friday night against the Auburndale
Bloodhounds in a tough district game
that Lake Wales won 14-7.
The Highlanders entered into the
matchup without their star quarter-
back, Roland Milligan. Milligan suf-
fered a minor back injury in last week's
game, but is expected to return to the
field soon.
The Highlanders began the matchup
on the defensive end, with Dakarial
Scott di; agging down a Bloodhound
after a pile up.
Lake Wales jumped on offense early
in the quarter, and was held up with a
penalty call before the attempt to reach
a first down. Jonte Sergeant stepped up
to the challenge after muscling his way
through a pile up of Bloodhounds to
gain the Highlanders a few yards.
Devonte London of Auburndale
gave the Highlanders a good chase,
after breaking past two tackles to gain
several yards for the 'Hounds. The first
quarter of the game came to a close
without a score from either team.
Lake Wales moved the ball on the
offensive end in the second quarter of
game play. Tony Reeves and Sergeant
got the job done, gaining yards before
Auburndale took over the ball game
offensively.
Highlanders Scott and Bobby Leath
doubled up on a joint tackle.
Reeves was the ball carrier, as the
Highlanders sent their offense out
onto the field for the third time in the
game, late into the second quarter. The
Highlanders were still on the hunt for
a touchdown, but never achieved that
goal.
Auburndale came to play. An explo-
sive run by Bloodhound running back
Charles Taylor led the team to its first
touchdown, scored by London in the
remaining seconds of the first half. The
second quarter ended with Auburn-
dale in the lead by seven points, as
Lake Wales struggled to put points on
the board.
After slow start to the game by the
Highlanders, halftime brought hopes of
turning the game around in their favor.

Wales in the third quarter of the
matchup left Auburndale in good
standings, after penalty calls left the

Highlanders in a swarm of turnovers.
With 1:46 remaining in the final quarter
the Bloodhounds were moving the ball
well in this district game.
Entering into the final quarter, flash-
backs of last week's game came surging
back to memory, when the Highlanders
went without points for four quarters
against the Winter Haven Blue Devils.
This week's battle picked up as the
Bloodhounds tried to pull off the upset
against Lake Wales with their 7-0 lead.
Ladaran Wilson of the Highlanders
made a big turnaround in the game
for his teammates, after a short punt
return took him all the way to the end
zone, giving Lake Wales its first points
in the game. Tate Mathewson's kick
was incomplete, and the Highlanders
missed out on an opportunity to tie the
game.
Intensity ratcheted up when
Mathewson was hit hard on the play in
a fumble snap, which could have been
Lake Wales' last opportunity to win the
District game. The Highlanders took
their final time out with 1:31 left in the
final quarter with a score of 7-6.
A huge turn of events gave the High-
landers their first lead in the game, as
quarterback Railond Garrett completed
the pass that Marcel White ran into the
end zone for the 14-7 win.
The Highlanders pulled off the vic-
tory in a comeback game in the final
quarter for the district championship.

Injuries hamper Jackets in 31-7 loss


By LARRY JEWETT
CORRESPONDENT

The task was daunting. Bartow had
to take on a highly-ranked team on the
road in their final district game of the
2011 season. The opponent was Winter
Haven and the Blue Devils were com-
ing off an emotional draining overtime
win against rival Lake Wales. Bartow, on
the other hand, was riding the momen-
tum of their previous game, a win over
Sebring.
Winter Haven started showing its
strength in the second quarter and
powered to a 31-7 win.
The game stayed scoreless early
through the first quarter which proved
to be a penalty-filled stanza. With 4:28
to play, Michael Walker broke off a 42-
yard run on the right side to race into
the end zone. Danny Williams tacked
on the extra point to put Bartow up 7-0.
SThe scoring drive was set up by Walk-
er opening with a 17-yard gain. Bartow
went to the air with short completions
to Jeremy Williams. Winter Haven
jumped offsides to give Bartow the first
down. Walker scored on the next play.
Winter Haven put up a quick three-
and-out before punting it back to the
Jackets. Bartow took possession on
the 35, again going to the short out to
Williams. Leverett carried twice to get
the needed first down to keep the drive
alive and eat up the clock. Walker's
wide sweep gained a fair amount of
yardage, but a holding call made it
moot. The first and 20 got worse when
Leverett was sacked at the end of the
first quarter.
Bartow couldn't muster positive yards
and had to kick the ball into the wind.
The ball was dropped but an early
whistle prevented Bartow from fight-
-ng for possession. Winter Haven went
to the air successfully, setting up a first
and goal at the eight.
The Blue Devils kept attacking on
the ground and faced a fourth down.
They were forced to take a timeout to
figure out a play that would get past the
stonewall defense. Senior running back
Corey Scott plunged over with 7:50 left
in the half and the kick tied it up.
At this point, Bartow's defense was
without the services of linebacker Ga-
brielAl-Shaer, sidelined with a shoul-
der injury, and defensive end Jermaine
Laneair with a leg injury.
With a tie game, Bartow opened the
drive from the 20. On the first play,
Walker lost the handle and Winter
Haven claimed the loose pigskin. The
plays started as runs, but Winter Haven
,went to the air to get inside the five. On
the play, defensive back Danny Wil-
liams was helped off the field. He suf-
fered a left leg injury, double jeopardy
considering that Williams is also the
Kicker.
Winter Haven tried a trick play that
lost three yards. Quarterback Levi Bor-
ders tucked in under his arm and raced
the five yards to the end zone. The extra
point made it 14-7.
William Cooper gave Bartow a good
,starting spot at the 42. Cooper got the
work but his two carries didn't fool
Winter Haven. Bartow punted with
Williams back in action. Rico Mathis
made a touchdown-saving tackle, but
the officials would have called it back
"anyway.
Now with the lead, Winter Haven
mixed up the play with a Borders pass

nearly intercepted by linebacker Phillip
Schoch. Borders was able to connect on
his next attempt to gain 22 yards. The
drive stalled and Winter Haven kicker
Moise Jean came out to try a field goal.
Bartow took a time out to ice the kicker.
Jean gave it plenty and the 40-yarder
was true, moving Winter Haven up 17-7
with 42 seconds to play.
Bartow would have one more shot
before halftime. Cooper gained four
to start, then Leverett scampered for a
first down with one second left. Bartow
was moved back for a false and Coo-
per's short gainer ended the period.
Bartow kicked off with an onside
kick, hoping to surprise Winter Haven.
The ploy failed and Winter Iaven went
to work. It looked like Bartow stopped
Winter Haven, but a late hit out of
bounds opened up opportunities for
Winter Haven.
An incomplete pass was followed by
a 23-yard completion. The Devils went
to the air, completing a wide receiver
screen to put the ball at the 10. Wal-
ter Bridges ran off left tackle to score.
Winter Haven assumed command to
the tune of 24-7.
After Freddie Stevenson ran for
four yards, Bartow went to the air as
Leverett found Jeremy Manning for a
gain of 26. Leverett found a wide open
Jeremy Williams who looked away and
dropped the ball. The Jackets, called
the Hornets by the P.A. announcer on
at least one occasion, did not move the
ball and kicked it away.
Winter Haven was pinned deep but
managed to get out to the Bartow 45.
Running back Roderick Ceaser scam-
pered off tackle and Winter Haven, with
the extra point, broke the game open
31-7.
Bartow's final possession of the third
quarter began with a hurry-up offense


and quarterback Dimitri Leverett oper-
ating from the shotgun. He connected
with Vontarius West for back to back
gains of 17 and 19 before time ran out.
When play resumed in the fourth, that
hookup worked again for 40 yards,
moving Bartow to the three. The Jackets
fumbled on the next play when a bad
snap materialized. This turnover ended
a promising drive and put a tired de-
fense back onto the field.
On the first play, senior lineman
Montel Collins was injured. Collins
had left the game in the first half, but
was able to return before this injury
happened. Winter Haven knew time
and the scoreboard were on their side,
staying on the ground and grinding out
a series of first downs, some by major


penalties against Bartow. Winter Haven,
who will be the district champion, was
able to give their starters a rest and
allow other players some game time.
After chewing the clock down to under
three minutes, Winter Haven turned it
over on downs.
With just under two minutes to play,
another Bartow player fell as Freddie
Stevenson had to be carried off the
field. The Jackets attempted to move
the ball, but the clock ticked down to
end the game.
Bartow returns home for its final
game of the 2011 season, playing the
Lake Wales Highlanders. The Jackets,
3-6, finished their district play with a
1-3 record. Game time for senior night
is 7 0.m.
