"No matter the face, complexity of race, eco-
nomical levels we face, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
you exemplify why my generation walks tall, broad
shoulders, a loud voice and stomp in our feet: I am
your dream!"
That is what Karin Belles Powell, a fourth grade
student at Dixieland Elementary, wrote in her es-
say that won first place in the elementary category.
Upon hearing her essay Wednesday, the 500 people
who attended the 11th annual Rev. Dr. Martin
I.uther King Jr. Essay Challenge Breakfast gave her
a standing ovation.
TIhe first place winner from the middle school
category Hayley Jackson from R.W. Blake Acad-
emy and high school category winner Derrick
Higdon from Aubumdale High also read their
essays.
The two-hour ceremony that included sing-
ing. dancing, and speeches from elected officials
noting King's significance, highlighted how far this
country has come, when he spoke of his dream,
though it was also noted that we still have much to
do before we fully realize equality.
"If he were here today, would he like to know if
someone today has reached higher than they were
able to reach?
He would,
like to get
statistics
out to see
how far we've
come from
his death to
where we are
today. Maybe
that could be
a project,"
Polk County
Commis-
sioner Sam
Johnson said
to the crowd.
"His
speech was

he said.

and his compassion for others. King fought hard
when opportunities for his race were hard if not
impossible to come by and he knew what he was
up against. To continue is important for those
growing up today.
"The vision was for his children," he said. "Any-
one alive today and in their 60s can picture the
amount of courage it took. I saw a quote from his
widow where she said he knew he wouldn't live a
long life because of the stand he was taking."
Recognizing his dream of where people of
different colors can sit together was not foreign to
those who didn't live through the rough times such
as black people did as late as the 1960s.
"He had many friends, and would've wanted to
befriend the people who hated him, because he
wanted peace with all races," Derrick Higdon read
from his essay.
Seventh-grader Hayley Jackson also seemed to
realize how hard it was for King in his time: "His
children and their children are living his dream
and I believe that if he were alive today, I would
like to tell him thank you for inspiring the world to
be a better place for e e ryone."

Teen killed

Feud between boys results
in shooting at Carncr
Village Apartwments
By DIANE NICHOLS
I 'I h II, I (l' -I I N I lTYn DEM(XK RAIT.OM
"Don't open the door!" were tlih last words
18-year-old John Hazelton heard before being
fatally shot in the head Thursday night.
A feud earlier that day between Hazelton and the
shooting suspect, Shaquille Rose, 16, led to what
neighbors described as "a tragedy that has affected
everyone."
According to police reports and witness ac-
counts, the two teens, who have known each other
since childhood, had been arguing earlier in the
day. At 8:50 p.m. the suspect went to Carver Village
Apartments at 1060 S. Golfview Ave. #41 where
Hazelton stayed with his older sister, Tara Autrell
Mathis, and his 2-year-old nephew, Jayden. After
pounding on the door and summoning Hazelton
to come outside, the suspect pulled a large caliber
handgun and fired two shots, one struck Hazelton
in the head, killing him at the scene, police said.
The suspect later turned himself in to the Bartow

OJ imports halted

into United States
By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
With the integrity of orange juice at stake and
dealing with hundreds of phone calls over this 1 -
week, the Florida Department of Citrus is not sure
how it will deal with the FDA's announcement that
it has halted shipments of imported orange juice
from all countries.
"It's just too early," said Robert Norberg, deputy
executive director at the (.itrus Department. "It just
hit us this week and mostly we've been answering
questions so we haven't been able to do anything."
One thing he know for sure though is there is no
health hazard.
"Basically the levels they had seen is not a hc.ilihl
concern," he said.
The imports will be held temporarily hi hle tIhe 'r
tested and may be sold if levels are below trace
amounts, according to the FDA. The fungicide, linked
in studies to higher risk of liver tumors in animals,
was found in trace amounts last munth in products
from Brazil, which produces almost one in every six
glasses of orange juice consumed in the U.S., Cit-
rusBR, an export induitr- association, reports.
While the chemical, carbendazim, is used in crops

of the accomplishments and realization
of Fir,'s work to the student -r noted
that 3,(0) students entered the i..Njd v
contest, and pointed out how some-
*irin gso far-fetched that he pitched has
actually become real.
'When i. King read that amaz-
ir=, speech, the dream was a foreign
dream. Bui look at what has been
.I1 i n[ plist' d "
One of the organi/rr of the event at
the Bartow Cr ic Center Wednesday,
Dale Terrell, said the dream has given
him si rngth.
'What the dream means to me is
that I have the strength, the integrity
and the vision to motivate others.
There is a fire and a desire to be the
best I can be and to educate, mentor
and motivate students to be their best
and to be successful no matter what
their background or their current life
situation. It is )pasinrg on that dream
and that passion to this generation
and the next grrnitrations to come," he
said, opening the breakfast.
But the essays were not all there was
to this breakfast. King's legacy was
remembered in songs, dance, speeches
and artwork. The Jewett School of Arts
chorus sang "Unity." Richard Anderson
from the Harrison School of Arts played
a piano tribuilt, Ramel Owens sang Sam
Cook's "Change is Gonna Come" and
students from the Florida Dance Acad-
emy performed. I cn In) pieces of art
in Ip.intings, photos and mixed media
were displayed. made by students from
McLaughlin, Southwest Middle. R.W.
Blake Academy and Union Academy. Si-
mon Cendeno from Harrison recited a
speech he wrote called "Acceptance" in
which he recognized we still have room
to further accept the dream.
"How can we land a man on the
moon, make deaf people hear and the
blind to see and still inflict pain and
practice prejudice?" he said. "We have
yet to reach unification as a species."


Dr. Shandale Terrell, the Community Rela-
tions Advisory Council chairman and dean of
students at Crystal Lake Middle School, said
"there is a fire and a desire to be the best I
can be and to educate, mentor and motivate
students to be their best and to be successful
no matter what their background or their
current life situation."

VIEWPOINT



Time to speak up for speaking up


If you attended a .r. commission mrneuring in
Bartow or Lake'.\ajI, recently you would have seen
r- iul.jr citizens stand up before their elected officials
and tell them what was on their minds.
It happens all of the time. Citizens talk about thing-
the commission is about to vote on. They give their
opinions and they point out things :he\ think need to
be improved in the city.
Residents like Vi'- Rog'er-. David Smith, Jack Van
'11 lIc Ruth Dampier, Sharon Becker and Manuel
(r,'sp), can sometimes be seen speaking out during
the public comments period during the Lake Wales
(.II Commission meeting. Bartow meetings would
not be the same without the public input of Gerald
Cochran. The I'fll3 County Commission often hears
from retired teacher Carol Castagnero.
Our meetings are better because those folks and
others get up out of their chairs and participate in the
democratic process.
Sometimes the public comment portion of the
i rncliings deal with controversial matters. Soumielinlm
the topic is potholes.
Public comment is such an ingrained part of any
public meeting in Florida ili;r we've come to think of
it as a legal right.


Our Viewpoint
A. u!LlJ'. that might not be the case.
Senate Bill 206 written by Sen. Joe Negron. R-Stuart,
seeks to clarify\ the issue and tudifi the right in state
law. His nil is a response to the decisions by the First
and Fifth District Courts of Appeal that Florida's Sun-
shine Law does not ,p)eLrifL alli guarantee the right of
citizens to speak at open meetings.
The rulings could mean any government -igtllnc'.
might prevent someone from expressing concerns to
elected 01lth 1ilj, be those concerns about sinkholes,
land use or climate change.
We seriously doubt our local governments would
ever chose to curtail the public's ability to speak at
public meetings. lust imagine the outcry.
We'd be first in line to clobber any public officials
who refused to give citizens a few minutes at the
microphone.
The letters to the editor column would fill with
outrage; radio talk shows would buzz.
So, no, it's an unlikely occurrence, at least on the
local level. But slip this one into the "you never know"
file. It's always possible unless the law says it's not.


As Barbara Peterson, the president of the lllalhal.
see-based I-Ir- Amendment Foundation, wrote in an
email this week the Senate bill by Negron and com-
panion House legislation offered by HR'rp Martin ki,r.
D-Davie, would amend the Sunshine Law to 'pec''11it
cally require reasonable public comment.
That doesn't mean carte blanche. Governments set
rules and time limits.
They have long agendas and business that has to
be completed in a timely manner. And many boards
hear from the same members of the public regularly.
But citizen comments broaden the conversation.
The,. often get a response. They keep decision-mak-
ers on their toes.
And, since these meetings are now ,iaillabl' on TV,
they give citizens a public platform they otherwise
might not have.
Negron's legislation contains minor exceptions and
allows for reasonable rules.
The important thing is that it CMuliL.s citizens'
rights to speak to their government and the rest of
the public. We encourage all of our readers, e'.pel i lly
those who like to show up at meeting and speak to
contact their local legislators on this one.
It's a good time to speak up.


Why have a court system?


Why have a court ,\ stern Haley Bar-
bour has gone from being a relatively
obscure politician little known out of
Mississippi, where he was governor, to
poster boy for a political system in bad
need of reform.
Barbour became the News Story du
Juur this week when he released more
rhan 200 prisoners, including several
convicted murderers, as his term as
Mississippi's chief executive drew to an
end.
It was one of the more bizarre actions
of a figure in what is sometimes one of
the more bizarre venues of American
life, politics.
As of'his writing, few common ties
have been found among the Favored
200 whose good fortune ranged from
early release from prison to outright
pardon.
The latter, by definition, means they
have no criminal record. The\ can vote,
teach school, serve on juries, run for
public oftite, become police officers,
and do all the other things that those of
us who never committed (or got caught
(ommnittiingl a crime can do.
They are honorable people, by decree
of the governor.

One of the few common bonds found
among them is that five worked as
trusties at the governor's mansion.
They weeded the governor's flower
beds, mowed and edged his lawn, and
otherwise did those things that the
less privileged among us either do for
ourselves or have to pay someone else
to do. This seems like precious little to
earn forgiveness for high crimes and
misdemeanors.
Before exiting this issuelet us note
that the term is trustlie-." not "trust-

ees," as was widely declared by network
personalities.
There is a difference.
A trusty is a prisoner whose behav-
ior behind bars is deemed sufficiently
meritorious to earn him a position of
limited trust, such-as tending the gover-
nor's tulips.
A trustee is a person who exercises
a position of authority over an institu-
tion such as a university or a charitable
trust.
Those who make their living in the
news media should know the differ-
ence. Many do not.

It is a common assumption in Ameri-
ca that "No man is above the law."
This usually is expressed in regard to
those who violate it.
But it also should apply to a chief
executive of a state (or the nation)
who can single-handedly overturn the
decisions of juries, judges, and appeal
courts, and declare a convicted felon to
be absolved of his sins.
This traditionally is done at the end
of the chief executive's term in office,
when he or she no longer is a servant of
the people who put him or her in office.
It is a final way of paying off politi-
cal debts to those found by the judicial

Letter to the editor



Thanks for all of the support


I could say I am surprised, but I'm
not, at the generosity of our Polk
County communities for their support
of the Fill-a-Bag program for our home-
less children in the Polk County School
System.
However, after chairing this proj-
ect for the Florida Public Relations
Association, Dick Pope Polk County
Chapter for three years, more and more
generous people provide the articles
needed. This year the project, which
was previously Fill-a-Bucket, contained
personal care items for the children
and will be given by the Polk County
School's Hearth Project all year long
and not just at the holidays. Thanks to
those who donated, those who put the


bags together, i.e., FPRA, Dick Pope Polk
County Chapter; Young Professionals
from the United Way; and the Order of
the Eastern Star (OES), Adah Chapter
#97, Lakeland. Chief Joe Hall, Bartow
Police Department, and his employees
filled 40 bags for the project. Bartow
Rotary Club was also among the donors.
For the third year Carla's Hair Design
Studio collected items.
Last, but certainly not least, Anita
Stasiak, Branch Manager of the Bartow
CenterState Bank, organized all the
CenterState Bank offices in Polk County
to collect the donations at their banks,
and delivered the donations to Beef

By DIANE NICHOLS
(DX fitOLS POLKC(OtL 'I)MOC*.RT .CO-M
A 13-'...,r-old girl's confession to her mother
about a sexual relationship led to the arrest
'Thursday of a h;.iri,.. man who had been
in trouble with the law before.
Robert Earl lull, r. _- has been ar-
rested and, I..arg.l with lewd and
lascivious tdiiirri ualirr a police
ii I ,1',iivljii found him sitting in
the Polk ( county jail on unrelated
arrest warrantst.
hI e hunt l rt,ii in late Decem-
ber when the victim's mother BUTLER
called authorities to tell then of
her l1.11011 'l 's admission. \V ti ii detectives
interviewed the girl, she stated that she had in
fact had a sexual relationship with Butler, who
warned her that she couldn't tell anyone about
it because he would "p'-i into trouble."
Evidence including )NA was submitted to
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
(rime lab, which confirmed the identity of
1I:li I and the sexual relationship. Detectives
then began looking for Butler, who was eluding
police due to prior arrest warrants dating back
to June of 2011 for burglary and grand theft.
Subsequently, Butler was captured and arrested
on these warrants on Jan. 9 and has been held
in the county jail.
Detectives went to the facility and interviewed
Butler, who reportedly confessed to having sex
with the victim. According to police affidavits,
Butler defended his actions by stating that he
believed the victim was 16 years of age.

A trip to a major Banro. ;h.pl,'L;'
outlet was one of the key . '.,
information the Polk County '- riff's
Department used in a.ppLrh rih.lJin two
suspects in an armed home invasion in
Fort Meade.
Booked without bond, i hLiri d with
burglary and robbery with a firearm,
are Ernest Jack 1'lIliI., of 716 Pine St.,
Fort Meade and Tshaumbe Smith of
,iit i Crews Lake Road, Lakeland.
According to police reports, the pair
entered a residence at 526 Seventh St.
S.E. at 7:35 p.m. Dec. 27 through a par-
tially opened garage. That led the pair
to a kitchen door and into the house,
where they encountered the victim sit-
ting on her couch in the living room.
According to reports, the suspects
were wearing black clothing and black
ski masks and one was armed with a
handgun. Police said at first the victim
thought it was a practical joke told the
suspects to stop playing. In response,
one suspect stated, "We're not playing,
bitch. We're not playing."
The one with the gun allegedly point-
ed it at the victim and she attempted
to push it away. When she touched the
gun, she realized it was a real weapon,
the report said. The other man tried to
tape her hands and as she fought them,
the woman yelled to her son in another
room to leave the house.
On Dec. 28, investigators then went
to Phillips' last known Fort Meade


address, and 'i-,und a black ski mask
and one brown glove. A relative told
police that the mask belonged to Phil-
lips, .iL urJiri' to an arrest affidavit,
and did not move the item h aIn L he
did not know if it was evidence or not."
Police tracked him to 2434 lum-
bleweed Trail in Lake Wales. I'l Il'p
was immediately arrested on an
', I In .. .r1i.li ii warrant from HIardee
County, but said he "did not know
anything" about the incident in Fort
Meade. However, he did advise po-
lice that he had been given a ride to
Walmaart in Bartow that evening.
On Dec. 29, detectives contacted
Forte, who said he had picked up
Smith and Phillips walking in Fort
Meade the evening of Dec. 27. Forte
said he took 'llilli,, to his Pine
Street residence and let him get a
bag of clothing. All three, along with
a fourth person, Justin Nelson, then
headed towards Bartow.
Forte, according to police records,
dropped off Nelson near Home-
land, and the trio continued on to
Walmart. As he was driving, Forte
said he received a call about the
robbery near his home. According to
police, he was joking with the sus-
pects that they were the ones who
that did it. The two suspects said
they had "screwed up" during the
robbery. During an interview with
police, Forte provided "intimate"
details of the robbery given to him
by the suspects.

George Gause shares honors with King


Remembered as mentor, lover of people, jokester


By PEGGY KEHOE
pjrf Asf:(I n.Ke f i.vn t It *T. f OM
As America celebrates the life of- ij il
rights hero Martin Luther King Ir., IBanno
also honors h1. -h.vui. of a local man who
was a leader in the community the late
George H. Gause.
Each year the Bartow Deacons &
Stewards Alliance King-Gause Committee
presents the King-Gause Parade through
Downtown Bartow on the MLK national
holiday.
While King's story is well-known and
part of the nation's history, the story of
Gause may not be known by newcomers
and those born after his death in 1986.
Gause was Barow's first black city com-
missioner and mayor and the first to serve
on the Polk County School Board. Iocal
history records his accomplishments; his
daughter, Joyce Thurman, remembers
his loving kindness and his humor. His
nephew, lon Sabb, remembers a men-
tor who inspired his own commitment to
community service.
He was born Nov. 6,1920, in Wilming-
ton, N.C., to Marie Freeman Gause and
George IHenry Gause, Sr. Ile was a suc-
cessful coniiructioni architect helping
to design naval ships, and also owned a
funeral home and grocery store. Advised
by his doctor to find a less stressful way
of life because of coronary disease, Gause
and his family moved to St. Petersburg.
then to Bartow where he learned there was
an opportunity to open a new business.
In 1928 he founded Gause Funeral
Home as a family business. Just five years
later he died, leaving his wife and four
children, Annette, Bemice, and twins
Evelyn and George, Jr. Mrs. Gause ran the
business, assisted by area funeral directors,
and later by the twins, who were active in
the community.
Gause graduated from Union Academy
in Bartow, then attended Florida A&M
University and the Atlanta College of
Mortuary Science. He married Alve Jones,
and was the fatherof Joyce Gause Thur-
man and the late Beverly Davis. After his
mother's death in 1975, the funeral home
was left jointly to the twins.
His sister, Evelyn, spent more than 43

in September 1978. A recount confirmed
that he had won a seat on the Polk County
School Board by just 12 votes, at the time the
narrowest margin ever.


years with Central ife Insurance Co. in
Polk County and also was active in family
business. She and her husband Isaiah
"Hahlin Sabb had a son. G,.-,or, Ronald
Sabb, who now runs the funeral home at
625 S. Spessard H lland Parkway.
At the time of his death, Gause owned
two mortuaries, one in Bartow and one in
Lake Wales. He was named National Black
Mortician of the Year in 1971. Running a
successful business might be enough for
some, but Gause also served his commu-
nity, and was a leader in local politics.
Elected to the city commission in 1969,
two years later he became Bartow's first
black mayor, the first black ma\ or of a
Florida city since the Reconstruction years
following The Civil War, and one of the
first in the Southeast. I e also was the first
African American to sit on the Polk County
School Board, representing District 3, ap-
pointed in 1977 by Gov. Rubin Askew to
fill a vacancy left by a resignation. He was
elected to a four-year term in 1978, but
didn't run again because of his health.
Cause served as vice chairman of the
Bartow Bicentennial Committee in 1976
and received the Jack McRay Humanitar-
ian Award in 1982 for public service. The
next year Polk Street Elementary School
was renamed George Gause Elemen-
tary School. It is now Gause Academy,
offering business, career and technology
programs for grades six through 12. Two
streets in Bartow are named for him, and
a monument at Carver Recreation Center
honors both Gause and King.
He suffered a heart attack on Thanks-
giving Day 1985, according to his obitu-
ary, and although he was reported to be
improving that December, he passed
away on Jan. 10, 1986.
The funeral home was left to his sister,
Evelyn, and wife, Alve, who ran the home
along with.Sabb. Since his mother's and
aunt's deaths, he runs the business with
his wife, Charlotta Stephens Sabb. Only
one of George Gause's sisters survives;
Annetta Smith of St Petersburg who is
now 95.
Named after his uncle, Ron Sabb fol-
lowed him into community service as a
city commissioner from 1990-96, with
two terms as mayor. He also served on
Bartow's Zoning Board of Adjustments
'and Appeals and as treasurer of the
Florida Black Caucus in the 1990s.
His uncle "was definitely an inspiration
to me to get involved in city government.
He believed we need representation from
all parts of the community."
Sabb is a quiet man, but when asked,
said "I'm sure he would be proud of me.
He was my mentor. I didn't have a father
figure in my life growing up and he was
it."
Gause was very involved in the com-
munity and "one of his 'pet peeves,' as he
used to say, was education,"Sabb recalled.
"It's so important nowadays."
Sabb hopes young people will learn
from his uncle's legacy of service to the
community, particularly among black
youth.
"I think there should be more interest
from younger people in the c,',mmunitc,
Sabb urged. "It's something we need to
keep in front of them and let them know
we needthem to keep this thing going."
Joyce Thurman remembers her father as

George H. Gause was the first black dty
commissioner elected in Bartow and the first
black mayor in Florida since Reconstruction.
He also was the first black to serve on the Polk
County School Board.
"a lover of people; a very, very kindhearted
and giving person; a God-fearing man.
When they were dedicating Gause Academy,
one of the officials, because Daddy had
been sick, asked him did he get right with
God. His response was 'I never knew that
God and I had a falling out.'"
He also '.as a jokester and a comedian
and a family man. "He loved his family:
his sisters, his wife, his children, his
grandchildren. I can remember when I
had my son and that was his first grand-
son. When they broke the ground at
Hamilton Gardens (now Azalea Gardens),
my son was out there helping with
groundbreaking."
"Even today he's so sorely missed,"
she said, especially this time of year. The
parade and events come just a few days
after the date of his death. "I miss him
and his loving ways, and he was comical;
some of the things he would say and the
jokes."
Besides his service as an elected official,
Gause helped friends and neighbors on a
personal level.

"He was special to so many people
because he was so caring," Thurman
said, remembering a teenage girl whose
father was very sick. She would walk to the
funeral home where they let her use the
phone. She didn't have any transportation
to get her father to the doctor, so Gause
would always send one of the employees
to drive the man.
"Anything he could do for anyone he
did," Thurman said.
Laughing, she also recalled that her
father couldn't cook. "He wasn't a chef
by no means." But"I tell ou what he
could cook crab and shrimp." The dish he
called "shala" was tomato-based. and also
contained chicken. He taught his daughter
how to make it.

monument at Carner Center. It says in
part, "This day sent aside to honor a giant,
because he always said I could and never
I can't A well-honored man for his work,
he bettered the land, because of his warm
heart, kindness and good deeds."
His personal legacy to her is "mainly he
was a lover of people. He was very giving,
caring; he was humble.
"He was just a special man ... and a great
father."

COUNTY REPORT


School board: State needs to be fair, let area control schools


By PEGGY KEHOE
PKHtt'. fe 4 .KC(l: .'T ItMCr T M.( Ol

Polk S cLunr, school Board members
.rtly, v. 'Ii for the coming .,-a that the
state I.'.gisluri: acts fairly in regard to
what :he. oversee, giving more control
to the local community.
'.TrMre control in the hands of the
people of the local I nmmunir,." is at the
top of the wish list School Board Mem-
ber' im Harris would write.
I larris didn't even have to think about
it when asked what his wish list would
be for the new year.
W\\ seem to be headed more in a
direction of state and national control
rather tha what was riginill., created
- local school boards, local schools.
lhtn we started public education in this
country, it was locally i introlled. locally
created, not a national issue."
I larris finds it frustrating :hat state and
national regulations extend to curricu-
lum, testing, finance and billing codes
for schools.
"The tentacles of federal and state gov-
ernment are wrapping rightl\ around lo-
cal education," Harris declared. "People
and parents in the local community have
lost influence to make local decisions;
they're more driven by state, governors,
r rigrcssinnal and the state Department
of Education."
In addition to a return of more local
control of education, Harris would like
to see improvements in performance,
finances and community support.

Spend some minutes
with Melony

By DIANE NICHOLS
DNICHOLS@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
If you have ever wanted to sit down
and share a cup of coffee with a county
commissioner to tell them
what's on your mind, you're
about to get your wish.
"A Few Minutes With
Melony," an informal
series of intimate sessions
between the public and
County Commissioner
Melony Bell, will begin on MELONY BELL
TI lt",Liy from 7:30-9 a.m. at
Perkins Restaurant located on 150 E.Van
Fleet Drive in Bartow. The session will be
free and open to anyone who is interested
in sharing thoughts, ideas and to pose
questions in a one-on-one casual forum.
Bell was elected as county commission-
er for District 2 in 2010. Prior to taking
her seat as a county official, Bell served 14
years as a Fort Meade City Commissioner,
served three terms as the Mayor of Fort
Meade, was the American Cancer Society
'tRdaL, for Life" Chairman for two years,
and has served on the Parish Relations
Committee at the First United Methodist
Church in Fort Meade where she was also
a Sunday school teacher.
The announcement for the "A Few
Minutes \'irli \lcli n\" sessions was made
at tuesday's county commission meet-
:,;-1 where Bell shared that she is looking
forward to meeting the people of Bartow
and listening to what is on their minds,
I.Likih notes and -i. t'iii. how she can bet-
ter address their concerns. Bell plans on
holding these rCmeetinir in various cities
around the county in i.ffoti to reach peo-
ple who minig not have the opportunity
or feel comfortable with addressing the
commissioners at their public nmetiill-.
Bell is married, has two dlughier., and
enjoys iri ning reading tennis and
travel.


School Board Member Frank 0 F:t-ll.
is definite on what he would like this
year: "That the Legislature, p-t:i'l.
our representatives here in Polk County,
would treat the public schools equallJ
to how they treat the charter schools in
which they have a personal interest.
"They 'tharter schools) only have to
make class size by each school; we have
to make by every single class ... It's hor-
rible, we spend S4-6 million more a year
than those schools to live up to the class
size amendment."
O'Reilly is frank in sas ing he believes
local legislators have a conflict of inter-
est because of their association with
some local charter schools: State Sen. ID
Alexander, R-Lake Wales, with the Lake
Wales Charter Schools, and Reps. Kelli
Stargel, R-Lakeland, and Seth McKeel,
R-I.;kelaind, with McKeel Academy.
"It hurts the public schools; treat us
, liuilly." O'Reilly pleaded.
"We've got to keep our eyes and ears
open starting IlttcI-dAl (Jan. 10, the start
of the legislative session) to make sure
our public schools get treated right."
Among his wishes for 2012 were these
from School Board Member Dick Mullenax:
I sincerely wish the Legislature would
stop shortchanging our student funding.
Expectations go up, academic bars are
raised for the best students and those
who struggle. Florida is at the bottom in
paying their teachers. We need funding
to carry out their wish list.
I wish all students would wear their
safety belts when in a moving vehicle.


We lose several each year that don't.
I wish our teachers would receive the
accolades they deserve, both in prlf-- .
sional re:-ipeC' and in their pay.
I wish more of our students were
tuned in aLcdrminicall% at the same level
ihe:, are tuned in electronically
I hope we have more students gradu-
ate, but I also wish many of our elemen-
tIr, and middle school students did
not have to ,irugglt as the\ do to learn
reading, math, science and wrilingI
I wish the electronic divide between
economic levels could be bridged.
I wish we could unlock the doors for
our students who are not natural English
peI'aker-,
It still deeply concerns me that we
have students living in all sorts of condi-
tions at home especially those who are
hungry.
I wish that every student had a strong
support 'llem at home and those
parent(s)/grandparents would stress the
importance of education.
And in the midst of it all ... celebrate
the small victories that are achieved
every day in the classrooms all over Polk
County. Remember it is our charge to
educate all the students. Remind our-
selves daily to respect, nurture and love
all of our students, even when they make
it difficult.
Like all people, whether directly or
indirectly involved with education, Polk
County School Board Member Lori Cun-
ningham's wish for students is singular.
"I want all our students to make learn-


ing gains," said Cunningham. Not only
does she want students to make gain-
but to buildd upon them on a continual
basis. She lauded e\ i ui.ne involved,
irLnI the students to the teachers to ad-
ministrators and support personnel who
have striven m.ikiig that achievement.
But there is more than just that Cun-
ningham has placed on a "wish list,"
and it involves money, also direcil\ or
indirectly.
"I would like, hope and pray that our
Legislature does not make additional
cuts," she said. Given the current eco-
nomics, she said she understood certain
funding had to be t ur11 .ild. but at the
same time she hopes lawmakers will
show some prudence.
"At least stay at :hlr current funding
levels," she said.
Cunningham also has another wish,
and that is for the Legislature to "contin-
ue to hold us harmless from (unfunded)
state mandates." These, she said, have
come, no pun intended, at a cost.
As two examples, she cited the new
teacher evaluation format and classroom
size. Attempting and accomplishing both
are precarious balancing acts, and Polk
County Schools has applied these man-
dates to its utmost ability. However, it
has come at a cost. Cunningham hopes
that should it ever reach the point that
Polk County Schools falls short despite
its best effort, even if only temporarily,
that it will be not be penalized.

State prison in Polk City to close


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
On June 1 there will be no more state
prisoners in Polk County. There also
will be no more of the 160 employees
who work at the Demilly Corrections
Institute working in Polk County.
That state prison in Polk City is one
of seven being closed, according to the
Department of Corrections. Four work
camps are also closing.
The closing of the Polk City facility
will save the state nearly S6 million.
The state projects it will save $75.7 mil-
lion with all the closings.
Demilly, which has 342 inmates and
160 employees, including 118 full-time
.-mptn', e',. is scheduled to be closed by
June 1. The facility opened in Febru-
ary 2009 to prepare inmates for work
release and help them re-enter into
society.
No inmates will be released early
from the closure, but whether or not all


1,293 employees from these facilities
will still have jobs is not yet known.
Demilly Warden Roderick James
had no comment on the closings or
what will happen with the employees,
but Corrections Secretary Kenneth S.
Tucker, said, "I'm not going to guaran-
tee we can place everyone."
He said remaining prisons have
about 116,000 beds for 100,000 current
inmates.

Poli u Department when he heard they
had been looking for him; he has been
charged w ith felony murder.
Joanna Hl era, a neighbor who lives
in the apartment across from the scene
of the shooting. choked back tears and
trembled revealing what happened.
"There were two young boys who came
around and first stopped at my apart-
ment unit, then knocked on my son's
, itndo i." said Rivera. "My bedroom
and my son's window is across from the
door where it happened. I don't know
why they did that. M;a bhe to see if any-
ludl was awake to avoid being identi-
fied or something. Then they just went
over to Tara's door and started pound-
ing. I could hear his sister yelling,.
'Don't open the door.' But he opened it
and one of the boys shot him right in
the head. John went to close the door
and the second shot went through the
door."
H1l ra stated that Hazelton's sister
was in her bedroom when the two boys
came to her door. Hazelton was in the
living room playing with Jayden, who
according to Rivera, hardly ever left
his uncle's side. She described how the
child was always excited to answer the
door whenever anyone knocked, so
Jayden was right next to Hazelton when
he opened the door.
"When the first shot hit John, he


managed to push the child back and
close the door so they wouldn't hit
Jayden," said Rivera. "Then they shot
through the door. The shots were so
loud. I have always heard gunshots
around here, but those were like huge
blasts."
Rivera describes Hazelton's mother as
a hard-working single parent who suf-
fered the loss of her husband a couple
of years ago. Rivera stated she dedi-
cated herself to her kids, including her
ohcer teenaged son who has a serious
medical condition.
"lWhen they got here last night and
were told John was dead, the son had
a seizure right there," said Rivera.
"While this boy is having a seizure, you
could hear people fighting. There was
a crowd of about 200 people here after
it happened and even with the police
on scene, it doesn't matter. People just
don't care anymore. It's horrible all the
crime that goes on around here. They
just don't realize that when something
like this happens, it doesn't just af-
fect the families of the victim and the
shooter. It affects all the people who
live here, especially the children."
The shooting left Reshaun Handford
walking around the property grieving
for a lifelong friend. Memories of fun
times, sports and simple laughs the two
had together over the years peppered
the shock he was dealing with.
"John and me have been friends
for as long as I can remember," he
said. "I've seen his mom and she's just


destroyed. She's not even comprehend-
ing what's happened. He kept a lot of
laughter in everyone's life. but I know
we just have to go on."
A contrasting description came from
Junior Burchfield who lives next door.
He said he knew both Hazelton and
Rose since the\ were born as thev lived
in the same apartment building at the
time on Fifth Avenue.
"Shaquille was a :eall% quiet boy who
didn't bother anyone," said Burchfield.
"From what I heard, John was bullying
the younger boy and even beat him
up and broke his nose a while back.
The boy came to the house last night.
I heard his sister tell John not to open
the door, but he did it anyway. ThtI-
had been fighting all day, I guess. My
heart goes out to both sides, but maybe
the kid just decided he had enough and


decided to stop it with a gunshot."
Ronald Pritchard, principal at Bartow
High School, remembers Hazelton as
a typical teen confused about what
he wanted to do in life and known by
many students.
"He started going to New Bugin.
nings in Winter Haven since the lirst
of the year and was still thinking
about the future and what options
were open to him," said Pritchard.
"He was liked by many and a lot of
students here knew him, so we've
made counselors ai;alable today for
those that needed to talk about it.
The tragedy is two famiiitis lost young
men one was killed and one will
most likely spent the rest of his life in
prison. Both sides will be messed up
forever because this young man's life
was cut short."


FUNGICIDE
FROM PAGE 1A
in many countries, it isn't approved for
use in oranges in the U.S. The agency's
announcement spurred calls by a-6hn-
sumer group for the FDA to set standards
on chemicals for testing going forward.
"We're glad they will be testing for this
fungicide, but we would like there to be
standards they could enforce for residue
levels in food for this chemical ahd
ofthrs, like arsenic or lead that have been
found in other jlictr," said Pary lovera,
assistant director of the Washington -
based Food and Water Watch.
But while there may not be a health
problem, Norberg said consumers may
not get that message.
Brazilian orange juice is used in some
of the orange juice manufactured in
America because of demand.
"We're still monitoring it," he said.
"There has been a lot of negative atten-
tion at the beginning, but it's dying down
a little bit."
"Carbendazim is widely accepted for
other crops, including apples, which are
consumed fresh," said Flavio Viegas, head
of Brazil's citrus growers association,


known as Associtrus said from Bebedou-
ro, Brazil "I don't understand what's the
deal with frozen concentrated orange
juice."
Carbendazim is used to combat black
spot, a fungus that doesn't affect taste or
crop yields, but makes fruits less appeal-
ing to consumers.
The FDA is also screening juice that's
already for sale in the U.S. market, said
Siobhan DeLancey from the FDA.
Concerns about the pesticide started
Dec;28 when the FDA learned that an
unnamed juice company had detected
low levels in its own and other products,
according to letter from the agency to the
Juice Products Association, a Washington
trade group.
When this was originally announced
orange juice futures rose the most in five
years, combined with freezing weather
that's damaged citrus crops in Florida.
The Florida Department of Citrus
board meets Wednesday and Norberg
said he isn't sure whether it will come
up. That meeting is set for 9 a.m. at the
Citrus Research & Education Center in
Lake Alfred.

Press was used in this report.

Stewart may remain as Pinellas chief through 2012-13


By REBECCA CATANELLO
TAMPA BAY TIMES

John Stewart could stick around as Pinel
las Count, school superintendent through
the end of the 2012-13 school year.
School Board members Tuesday
said they want to discuss negotiating a:
contract with Stewart that would keep
him in the 101,000-student district until
July 2013.
Stewart was the superintendent of
Polk County Schools from 1983-1996.
Originally hired as an interim super-
intendent in Pinellas, replacing fired
chief Julie Janssen, Stewart has continu-
ally impressed his new bosses with his
gel-it -done approach since assuming


the job in August.
Though Stewart told the board as
recently as October that he had no
interest in staying beyond December
2012, he wrote in an email to them last
week that he's changed his mind. He
told the Tampa Bay Times Tuesday that
he simply wants to finish some of the
work he's started.,
"I did a lot of reflection over the win-
ter break," he said. "I'd like to see some
of these seeds take root."
Board Member Carol Cook requested
that the topic be placed on the School
Board's February workshop agenda.
But every board member has expressed
great support for Stewart since he took
the job.


If board members agree they want to
enter negotiations with Stewart, they
could revisit his salary as well as any
benefits he receives.
Under his current contract, Stewart,
68, makes $12,000 a month or $144,000
a year. Janssen made $203,000 a year


before she was terminated.
Stewart came to the district after
his 2009 retirement as executive director
of the Florida High School Athletic
Association. He spent three years work-
ing as a deputy superintendent in Pinel-
las under Howard Hineslev.


Drop a line, help a veteran


Lake Reedy event helps fund

Wounded Warrior camp


By JAMES COULTER
%.1 ,As t NI 'l N [I'K H Ii '.?1 % [ I'

Call it fishing for a cause. A very good
cause at that.
A tournament and barbecue dinner
to benefit disabled veterans was held
Saturday at Lake Reedy The first-ever Greg
Briulev Perch Jerkin' Tournament and
BBQ, held by dith Federation of Christian
Sportsmen, raised $1,133 to fund the con-
struction of a permanent hunt camp for
WoundedWarriors, al S \nm\ program
that assists severely-wounded soldiers and
their families.
The hunt camp will be built on a state-
owned site called the Prairie Tract located
east of Lake Wales on itaie Road 60. Desig-
nated h\ til Florida Forest Service hli ,ogh
a legislative measure called "Operation
Outdoor Freedom." the site has been used
in previous years bI the Federation to host
. earh camping and hunting trips for the
\\iVnutided Warriors.
\\e provide a chance to get away in
God's creation to enjoy a time of fte'lliC. ship
with some other men that have experi-
enced some of the same kind of action as
them while dcl'i ld Lnrg our freedoms that
we all enijo Federation President Freddie
Senterfitt said.


Immediate plans for the hunt camp
include a 24-foot by 48-foot foot multipur-
pose pavilion, kitchen area and electric and
water utilities. Future plans include Ameri-
cans for Disabilities Act-approved bunk-
houses and bathhouse. Estimated costs are
$8,500 for the pavilion and $7,500-$8,500
for a well. No estimate has been made yet
for electric utilities.
Both the hunt camp and the fish-
ing tournament have been dedicated in
honor of Greg Brantle% co-founder of the
Federation and founder of Wounded War-
riors. Before passing away last year, he had
suggested the fishing tournament in order
to fund the hunt camp, Senterfitt said. His
father Johnny Brantley participated in the
tournament, and his wife Alice and mother
Mary Lou helped with the barbecue, which
was so popular it ran out of food.
The annual fishing tournament actually
started last year. Seven boats 'iv., fisher-
men each) participated this year, as did last
year, Senterfitt said.
Fir : place went to Tim and Steve Hood
for the heaviest catch (10 fish limit) at 8.27
pounds. Their prize was 5105 (a 35 percent
payback of entry fee), which th-,. donated
back to the cause.

The Lake les News

The Polk County Demcrat

Welcome to our new and improved newspapers. We have been working hard during the
past few months to bring you more local news and a more attractive product. Our staff
had made several improvements that I would like to share with you.
A SECOND DAY OF YOUR HOMETOWN PAPER
We now publish our paper every Wednesday and Saturday. That means you can keep up with
Polk County news twice a week and the news you receive is much more timely.
MORE POLICE AND GOVERNMENT NEWS
It is now easier to tell how safe our community is and where crime is being committed.
MORE COMMUNITY DISCUSSION
We have added columns from our city manager, local government watchdogs, the chief of police and civic leaders.
Your hometown paper is striving to be the marketplace for local ideas and commentary.
A SEPARATE CLASSIFIED SECTION TWICE A WEEK
We've added a classified section with employment ads, garage sales and other categories
to make shopping for those hard to get items even easier.
FREE CLASSIFIED ADS
If you have an item to sell and the cost is less than $500, you don't have to give us a dime. They are absolutely free.
MORE LOCAL SPORTS
We have expanded (almost doubled) our local sports coverage.We have been hard at work working
with local coaches and sports organizations and we now have drastically increased the number
of photos and sports results we publish each week.
THE BEST BUSINESS AND SERVICE DIRECTORY FOR POLK COUNTY
Looking for an electrician, lawn service and painter?
Our business and service directory is full ofbusinesses who can fit the bill.
We are proud of our recent improvements but know that there are many things to be done.
We would love to hear from you with your ideas.
If you think there is something we could do to improve our product, give us a call. I would love to hear your ideas.

Sincerely,
