More World Series coverage, 14-16

As Bartow's AAA team Sunday was
warming up on Conley Field for their
second round game against Louisiana
in the Dixie Youth Baseball World
Series, Lee Conley was wandering the
grounds. He's the only living member
left from the first time Bartow hosted
the games in 1970-and he was present
the first weekend of Bartow's fifth time
hosting the event.
"I don't know if you know this, but
the first year we hosted the World
Series North Carolina had a pitcher in
the first game named Michael Jordan.
He won that game 1-0," he told me the
day before.
He said the former NBA superstar
played shortstop in the next game and
North Carolina lost the game 4.-3 but
he remembers the game where Jordan
pitched and he remembers that North
Carolina almost didn't have a team
in the World Series. In 1970 North
Carolina was added officially as a team
in Dixie Youth Baseball but the league
there didn't have the money to go so
Bartow picked up the bill for them to
attend, Conley said.
"I still have the box score for that


game," Conley said.
Conley said he watched that game
and though he nor anyone else there
knew of the young boy's future "he
was just another kid" out there it
certainly brought to mind that there
are plenty of kids out there that people
may say later, "I saw him play before he
could shave."
Some professionals people may have
seen playing Dixie ball include Bo
Jackson, a football and baseball all-star;
Otis Nixon, a former Atlanta Braves
outfielder; and Reggie Sanders, a star
in both football and baseball, as well as
Jordan.
In my first two days at the games I
saw some balls fly over the fence,, some
nice work in both the outfield and
infield, and some good thinking getting
done by players in the field. There
certainly are some players out there
who have potential futures.
Fans were fortunate that the rain
stayed away. After Bartow suffered a
heavy dose of rain Friday afternoon
and the opening festivities at Joker
Marchant Stadium in Lakeland was
delayed for about an hour, there was
a different kind of wetness this past
weekend at the George Pittas Complex.
It came from the 95-plus degree heat.

It was more than a storm to one


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER @POLKCQUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Anyone who has seen "The Curious Case of
Benjamin Button," the 2008 film that starred
Brad Pitt as a man who ages in reverse,
probably remembers several scenes that had
absolutely no bearing on the story, but which
were hilarious. Those scenes, filmed in sepia,
involved a man who was constantly struck by
lightning. Each time one of those vignettes
flashed on the screen, audiences would burst
out laughing the moment the man was struck
by lightning.
In real life, however, getting struck by
lightning is no laughing matter. Just ask Jerry
Grantham, who is often seen riding the streets
in his electric scooter, many times with his
wife, Carol, walking alongside. He was struck
by lightning during the thunderstorm that
struck Friday, Aug. 3.
"It happened just before 5 p.m.," said
Grantham. He and his wife were returning
from shopping. It began raining as they
traversed the bridge on U.S. Highway 17 that
serves as an overpass above State Road 60. As
STORM | T12


Carol Grantham grew worried when her husband,
Jerry, did not arrive home shortly after the thunder-
storm began, not knowing he had been struck by
lightning, which also damaged his scooter to the tune
of more than $600.


Roads to be resurfaced

Parts of 10.69 miles

slated to be repaved


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @ POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.
COM
In about two weeks, parts
of 63 roads in. the city will get
resurfaced, acting Public Works
Director Russ Martin told com-
missioners Monday.
"This work will start on
Monday and the contractor said
it would take about two weeks,"
he said at Monday's city com-
mission meeting.
Martin shared a map with
commissioners showing the
2012 proposed street resurfac-
ing that covers 10.69 miles. This
shows, he said, that it is costing
the city about $951,235.49 for
village and resurfacing.
To determine which roads are
being resurfaced in this project,
Martin said the Public Works


staff worked on a method that
rated the roads in three catego-
ries of priority: "needs, needs
attention and excellent condi-
tion," meaning those roads
generally had been worked on
recently.
"And there was a little bit of
working knowledge," he said.
Commissioner Wayne Lewis,
after viewing the map, felt the
order of fixing what was wrong
seemed to follow the method
well.
"The map shows broken
roads all over the city," he said.
"The place I get the most com-
plaints is in the area in front of
the high school and the middle
school. I see those are at the top
of the list."
Martin said not only are those

Tuesday declared Purple Heart Day in Polk County


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW @POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Tuesday was Purple Heart Day and to
honor it, the city flew a Purple Heart flag
presented to the city by Veterans Services.
Also the city issued a proclamation to
honor the day.
Ernie Roberts ofVeterans Services pre-
sented the flag to the city at Monday's City
Commission meeting, accompanied by
John Haas, the commander of the Bartow
American Legion.
"The four of us work daily to get veterans
what they deserve," Roberts said after
accepting the proclamation. "I want to
present the Purple Heart flag and tomor-
row on Purple Heart Day, I would like the
city to fly it."
In proclaiming Purple Heart Day,
City Attorney Sean Parker read from the
proclamation that Polk County's "highly
decorated veteran population" with about
4,000 Purple Heart recipients has three
Congressional Medal of Honor recipients
in James H. Mills, James R. Hendrix and
William R. Charette.
"Navy CorpsmanWilliam R. Charette,
recipient of the Medal of Honor, had the
Charette health Care Center, a part of the


Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth,
Virginia, dedicated in his honor on the 30th
of April, 1999," the proclamation reads.
Also in honor of the declaration of Polk
County becoming a Purple Heart county,
on Saturday, Polk County Transit Services
plans a ground-breaking ceremony for the
Purple Heart memorial and the unveiling
of the Purple Heart bus. The ceremony
will take place at 10 a.m. at Veterans
Memorial Park, 150 Lake Beulah Drive,
Lakeland.
"We plan to fill the Purple Heart County
bus with veterans from Polk County who
were awarded the Purple Heart and have
them disembark to begin the groundbreak-
ing ceremony for the new Purple Heart
memorial," Mike Mason, veterans services
supervisor for Polk County, said in a press
release. "This powerful visual will help
reinforce the importance of these brave
veterans to us all."
Speakers at the ceremony include Polk
County Commission Chairman Sam
Johnson, Lakeland City Commissioner
Don Selvage, Mason, CWO Greg Robinson
and Gary Clark.
Purple Heart County flags supplied by
the Military Order of Purple Heart will be
flown throughout the county as a show


The Purple Heart flag was flown in Bartow Tuesday, Aug. 7 after the city issued a proclama-
tion and Veterans Services presented a flag to the city at Monday's city commission meeting.
'Presenting the flag is Ernie Roberts to the left, the Veterans Service Officer, Pat Haas, the
commander of the Bartow American Legion and Bartow Mayor Leo Longworth.

VIEWPOINT



Our recommendations in judge races


Catherine Combee


Mark Kaylor


Circuit Judge, Group 27

Attorfieys Catherine Combee and Mark Kaylor want
to become the new Circuit Judge in the Group 5 race.
The 10th Judicial Circuit covers Polk, Hardee and
Highlands counties. Circuit Court judges hear major
civil and criminal cases. The circuit court is made up
of five divisions that include criminal, civil, family,
juvenile and probate.
Combee is a Polk County attorney who holds a
bachelor's degree, two master's degrees, a Ph.D.,
and a law degree. Combee had a successful career
in the medical laboratory field before acquiring her
law degree and practicing law. She is an attorney
in private practice who worked for a while in the
State Attorney's Office in Polk County. She has been
practicing law for about 11 years.
Mark Kaylor is a private practice attorney who
has offices in.Winter Haven, Lakeland and Sebring.
Before starting his practice he worked for the Public
Defender's Office for a short period of time.
He is a successful lawyer who says he is ready to
start a new career as a judge. In addition to practic-
ing law he has owned the Kissimmee River Park and
Marina in Winter Haven. He was a founding trustee
of All Saints Academy and board member of the Polk
Museum of Art.
The two attorneys in this race both have distin-
guished careers.
Combee's educational background is remarkable.
Her advanced degrees and her varied business expe-
riences make her a very well-rounded individual.
Kaylor has practiced law for 29 years. Both can-
didates are qualified to hold the position of circuit
judge.
We believe Kaylor's long experience in the practice
of law makes him a better choice in this race. If
elected, we believe he will be able to hit the ground
running, so to speak, and be an effective judge.
We recommend Mark Kaylor for Circuit Judge,
Group 27.


Our recommendations


Larry Helms


Christine Trakas Thornhill


Circuit Judge, Group 7

In the race to see who gets to be a new Circuit
Judge in the 10th Circuit,
Group 7, three candidates ."
are vying for the position. /
Larry Helms is a Winter
Haven attorney who has '
been practicing law for
37 years. The 64-year-old
lawyer is a University of
Florida graduate and very .
involved in his commu
nity, serving as the past
president of the local bar
association and president Bill Sites
of the Rotary Club of Bill Sites
Cypress Gardens.
He appears to be a
pragmatic individual who is proud of the local legal
community. "We've got a group of judges we can re-
ally be proud of," he told our editorial board recently.
Christine Trakas Thornhill is a 37-year-old attorney
who grew up in Polk County and after graduating law
school at St. Thomas University School of Law took a
job in the Public Defender's Office.
Thornhill said that experience gave her a keen
insight into the scope and complexity of a judge's job.
She has also volunteered with Teen Court in Polk
County.
Bill Sites is a Polk County attorney who has been in
private practice for 23 years. Sites looks at the court-
room as a big part of his life. "My life has been in
the courtrooms. I've been a good lawyer and a good
businessman," he said.
Sites also said he would have his courtroom
proceedings start on time. "There is no reason why
court can't start on time," he said. Everyone involved
in a court case has other things that they should be
doing and making sure court starts on time respects
everyone's time, he told our editorial board.
All three of the candidates in this judge's race are
intelligent, thoughtful attorneys. All have differing


levels of experience.
Thornhill has the least amount of experience but
would make a great judge after she gets a little more
experience.
We believe that Bill Sites has the temperament that
would be well-suited to sitting on the bench and
would make an excellent judge.
We recommend Bill Sites for Circuit Judge, Group 7.

County Judge, Group 5


William Twyford


Bob Grode


Bob Grode and William Twyford both want to be a
Polk County judge.
Grode is a native of Polk County and has been
practicing law since 1997. He currently practices with
the law firm Lilly, O'Toole & Brown in Winter Haven.
Grode is a graduate of Kathleen High School and
the University of Florida College of Law. Grode has
extensive experience as a mediator.
Twyford has been an attorney for 24 years. For
about five years, he was the chief of the 10th Circuit
branch of the Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil
Regional Counsel. This office represents indigent
clients who cannot be represented by the Public
Defender's Office. He has als6 worked for the public
defender's office. He is a graduate of Winter Haven
High School. He has a law degree from the University
of Memphis.
County judges handle criminal cases like DUIs,
petty theft, assault and battery and domestic vio-
lence. They also handle civil cases like small claims,
uncontested divorces and landlord-tenant issues.
It is a shame that both of these attorneys couldn't
be elected to the county court this year. They are both
very qualified and would make excellent judges.
But there can be only one.
Because the legal experience and community
involvement both candidates possess is so similar,
we think the edge goes to Bob Grode because of his
experience as a mediator on the 10th Circuit Court
mediation committee.
We recommend Bob Grode for Polk County Judge,
Group 5.

What was your

reaction to the

resignation of

Florida Education

Commissioner

Gerard Robinson?


Debra Wright
School Board Member

His reason for leaving to be
with his family is honor-
able. Although I did not like
portions of his message,
I respect the fact that he
did an excellent job carrying
out the mission and vision
of the governor.


'(7)


Tim Harris
School Board Member

Anytime you have family
divided over a job choice, it's
going to make it difficult if
you can't have your family
join you. [Robinson's family
remained in Virginia because
his wife had not been able
to find a law professorship
in Florida. He was appointed
commissioner in May 2011.]


DickMullenax
School Board Member


Mr. Robinson got caught
in the untenable position
of trying to implement a
program that was doomed
to fail. I wish him well. I
hope in the future we'll get
a commissioner that will be
able to add common sense to
what they're trying to accom-
plish with accountability.


Hazel Sellers
School Board Member


I'm not real surprised. There
were real issues with the
scoring system this year. It
was not transparent how
those problems came about
or some of the changes
afterwards. It made me
doubt the reliability of the
tests this year.


Temperament above all else


One of my most favorite activities in journalism was
interviewing candidates for public office who were
seeking the endorsement of our newspapers in their
bids for public office.
One of my least favorite activities was making the
selections.
As to the first, I enjoy meeting people, and I respect
anyone who will stand for election to public office. In
any contested election, there will be at least one loser,
and I have been assured by politicians that losing is
no fun.
I particularly enjoyed the comments of a friend who
ran for county judge many years ago, and lost.
After the election, he said, his wife told him, "If
you decide to run again, I hope your second wife will
enjoy your second campaign as much as your first
wife has enjoyed your first campaign."

As much as I enjoyed the interviews, making the
selections except where the choice was obvious -
was less fun. I never overestimated the influence of
our newspapers, but I wanted whatever impact they
had to be for good.
I used to make it a practice to say something good
about the candidates we did not support.
That changed the year that one of the candidates
we did not endorse used our favorable comments in
his campaign literature in an obvious effort to give the
impression that we had endorsed him instead of his
opponent.
When the candidate we had endorsed asked what
he could do, I told him not much, since we had
indeed said what we were being quoted as saying.
But that marked the end of my "good guy" practice of
offering a few kind words about the candidates we did
not support.


S.L. Frisbie




S.L. Frisbie can be contacted at
slfrisbie@polkcountydemocrat.com


I figured, rightly or wrongly, that endorsements
of judicial candidates carried more weight than for
other offices, since about all a candidate for judge can
promise is fair, impartial, and efficient administration
of justice. And I never saw a candidate base a cam-
paign on opposition to any of these goals.
In making judicial endorsements, I contacted a
number of prominent lawyers to ask them way, way
off the record whom they supported and why. That
pledge of secrecy follows them or me to the grave,
whoever gets there first.
For that reason, I feel released from the obligation
not to reveal that the late Jack Edmund was one of my
confidantes. Jack was killed in a traffic accident while
returning to Bartow from a legal proceeding in Tampa.
He sometimes told friends, "I will practice law until
the day I die." He did, and nobody was better at it.

One year, Jack, in responding to my biennial inquiry
about candidates, told me that any reasonably good
lawyer with the requisite law degree and years of
practice had the professional qualifications to be at
least an adequate judge.
The factor to examine, he said, was temperament.


An arrogant lawyer, he said, would only become an
even more arrogant judge. Colloquially, judicial ar-
rogance is known as robe-itis.
From that day forward, I quizzed candidates about
this issue. Several of them asked me to assure them
that if they were elected and I sensed they were
developing robe-itis, I would call their hand on it. Two
or three times I did so.

Not many people are willing to do this.
Other judges, even experienced ones, seldom will.
call the hand of a younger jurist who becomes ar-
rogant. I fault the judiciary for that.
Lawyers who practice before judges are even less
likely to meet with their former colleagues over a beer
and tell them they are getting too big for their judicial
britches. And I cannot fault them for their caution.
So that task is left to ornery journalists who are
willing to stick their necks out. That is one measure, I
believe, of a good editor.
In the current election, I have had the opportunity
to have the judicial arrogance discussion with a
candidate or two, even though I no longer am a one-
member editorial board.
One told me he hopes I will be around long enough
to call him aside if he develops robe-itis. I told him
I stand prepared to do so through his fourth term in
office.
I will be well into my 80s by then. And probably
more ornery than ever.

(S. L. Frisbie is retired. Judges need ornery critics, and
critics, in an enlightened sense of self-interest, need to
be really, really law-abiding citizens, lest they some day
find themselves standing before a judge to whom they
have given the benefit of their unsolicited critique.)

say. I think that John would share that
same character with you. Finally, he
has the support of some of the people


in this county that I have a great deal
of respect for right now. I believe that
John Hall will serve Polk County well as
our spokesman.
The Clerk of the Court, Richard
Weiss, is of the opinion that Stacy
Butterfield is the person that he
recommends for his replacement. For


a professional to say that he must have
confidence in that person. She worked
with him for 20 years so I would think
he must know her abilities.
Like John Hall, I called her and did
not reach her and she called back. So
she gave me the privilege of talking to
her personally.


She has the credentials to do the
job and is able to convey herself
very well.
I believe you will have made a good
choice if you put Stacy Butterfield in
this position.

Police to Stop the Blockage


Efforts to step up gridlock enforcement being undertaken


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
The construction in the area has
caused some traffic problems and to
deal with it a little more the Bartow
Police Department has started
Operation Stop the Blockage.
That traffic problem is called gridlock
and what has been happening is cars
are stopping in the middle of intersec-
tions and sitting there keeping cars
with green lights from going.
It hasn't been that the Bartow police
have been not paying attention to
this situation, but they are kicking up
people's awareness of the issue. They


want drivers to know if you get a ticket
for this it's going to cost $164.
It is illegal under Florida Statutes
for drivers to enter intersections or
crosswalks unless there is space on
the other side of the intersection or
crosswalk. If there is not enough space,
drivers must stop before the intersec-
tion. If they're stuck in the intersection
it is a violation.
"We'll issue citations and you'd be
surprised at how much good that has
done," Lt. Gary McLin said. "But we still
get complaints and calls."
Not only does this happen where the
heavy construction is going on at the
intersection of Broadway and Van Fleet


Drive but a lot of gridlock also happens
at Broadway and Polk Street. He said
there have also been problems on the
turns at Van Fleet and Broadway.
"People are sitting in the intersection
instead of waiting and others can't get
across," McLin said. "They're taking
chances with their lives and accidents
do happen.
"The vehicles that are going west-
bound on Van Fleet, they miss the right
hand turn and go onto Broadway,"
he said. "There's a big sign saying 'No
Right Turn' if you're going west on Van
Fleet and make a right turn but they're
doing it and making illegal right turns."
The city has tried to make it easier for


drivers on Van Fleet by synchronizing
lights to change at the same time, but
there are still problems.
"We change and we still have people
backed up," he said. "People who have
the green light (and can't get through)
get mad."
During the Stop the Blockage cam-
paign police officers will monitor the
intersections along Van Fleet Drive,
Main Street and North Broadway
Avenue during peak travel times -
early morning and afternoon rush hour
- to detect the violators. Not only is
there a $164 fine, but the moving viola-
tion carries with it a three-point charge
on the driver's license.


This week the Florida Departmen
Transportation is closing a portion o
inside eastbound lane on State Road

railroad crossing.

Final days of Stuff the Bus are here


Collection of back to


school


supplies for homeless students is Friday


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
In the second year of collecting
school supplies for homeless students
the Chamber Young Professionals have
blown away what they raised last year
but still with two more days of col-
lections they could use more because
there are a lot of children that could
be served.
"Last year we identified 2,401 home-
less people throughout Polk County.
This year we've already identified 2,500
and that doesn't include the Lake Wales
area," Dee Dee Wright, Polk County
School Board Project Hearth Specialist;
said when the campaign started.
According to the school district there
are about 350 homeless students in
public schools in Polk County.
Catherine Tucker said while the
organization has raised more this year
than it did in its first year last year,
people can still donate supplies or
money or both until the end of the
business day on Friday.
"Still backpacks is the big thing. We
got a lot of paper products," she said,
but there probably still isn't enough
for everyone. "Anything you can get
is welcome. We'll take monetary
donations."
Checks can be made out to the
Chamber Foundation, which is a non-
profit organization.
Supplies that can be given can

Through the end of this week The Engage steering committee of the Bartow Chamber of Commerce is taking items for the annual Stuff the Bus
collection. This is a school supply donation to help homeless students be ready for the start of school. School opens in Polk County on Aug. 20. From
left is are Engage steering committee members Clint Edwards, Randy Vosburg, Melissa Pittman; Polk County School Project Hearth Director Dee
Dee Wright; CYP steering committee members Shannon Medley, Jeff Kincart, Catherine Tucker and Josh Palmer. To get donation information, call
863-533-7125, or email ctucker@centerstatebank.com.


include zip binders, paper, three-
profig folders, spiral notebooks
and calculators. In addition, school
uniforms, gift cards for food, medical
and dental services are also needed.
Hygiene items such as shampoo,
conditioner, soap, deodorant, hair
brushes and feminine products are
always appreciated, Tucker said.
Any donation can be taken to the
Chamber of Commerce on Broadway
which is the only place to drop off
donations. The CYP now known


as Engage is a committee of the
Chamber of Commerce.
The Stuff the Bus project helps
Project Hearth, the Polk County
School Board's services department
for homeless students. It says that the
average age of a school-aged homeless
person is 9.
Engage got involved in the program
because of Wright appearing at the
club, which is made up of business
people between 20-42 years old.
"We heard Dee Dee speak and didn't


realize the impact that something like
this has in our hometown," Tucker
said. "We got moved from the message
and wanted to do something about
it. A lot of us in the group are parents
and while we want to provide for own
children we want to help those in the
community."
For those interested in donating in
the final days of the collection and
want information, people can call the
chamber at 863-533-7125 or email
ctucker@centerstatebank.com.


Two men and a woman were each
charged with having a methamphet-
amine lab at a Dudley Avenue residence
as police were looking into a retail theft,
the Bartow Police Department reported.
On Monday, police responded to
Walgreen's at 395 E. Van Fleet Ave. and
while looking into the retail theft they
were able to determine the suspect was
at 750 S. Dudley Ave., police reported.
When Officer Jason McCain went
to the house he arrested the resident
Michael Bottoms, 26, for retail theft and
the unlawful use of a driver's license,
police report.
Thomas Baldridge, 39 of 660 Formosa
Ave., Bartow, was arrested and charged
with unlawful use of a driver's license,
and Kristyne Peed, 21, of 750 S. Dudley
Ave., Bartow, was arrested due to an
outstanding burglary warrant and
resisting an officer without violence.
McCain had gotten information from


anonymous sources that Bottoms was
possibly manufacturing methamphet-
amine in his residence. Considering
that, the fact that Bottoms allegedly
was stealing Sudafed and a foul odor
being emitted from the residence,
Detective Steven Zawacki was noti-
fied, police reported. Zawacki, who is
a member of the Polk County HIDTA
(High Intensity Drug Trafficking
Areas) task force, came with other
HIDTA members. During a search,
task force members found a working
methamphetamine lab.
All three suspects were charged with
trafficking in methamphetamine of
more than 28 grams, manufacturing of
methamphetamine, possession of listed
chemicals, maintaining a dwelling for
drug manufacturing and possession of
drug paraphernalia, police report.
The suspects were booked into the
Polk County Jail.

it did, a woman driver offered Carol
a ride. Jerry urged her to accept the
offer, saying he would be home shortly
after.
A few minutes later, the rain grew
heavy, accompanied by thunder and
lightning. Grantham pulled out his
cell phone. Just as he went to dial, a
bolt of lightning struck nearby and
ricochetted.
"The first jolt hit the front of my
scooter," he said. The second hit the
hand holding the cell phone, traveled
down his arm, up to the middle of his
shoulder and into his neck, he said. It
pitched him forward and momentarily
knocked him out. When he regained
consciousness, he had a sizable
headache, plus the strike knocked the
breath out of him.
"Felt like I'd been kicked by a mule."
It also melted his phone.
Meanwhile, his wife had grown
concerned. Grantham should have
been home by now, so she tried to
locate him.
"I tried to call him, to check on

It may be almost imperceptible, but the area
just below Jerry Grantham's ring finger is

him,see if he was on his way home,"
Carol Grantham said. "I couldn't get
ahold of him. All I got was his voice
mail. I didn't know his phone had been
destroyed."
When the rain lightened, she
grabbed an umbrella and started to
search for him, finding him at the Ace
Hardware Store, 13530 E. Church St.
"At Ace, they assumed something
happened to me because they told me
I was 'lit up,' said Grantham.
Courtney Pfinkston, who was
helping a customer, remembered
Grantham coming into the store.
"He seemed fine, but kind of shook


up," said Pfinkston.
Angela Malloy, who was at the
counter, was the first to see him arrive
and enter.
"He was a little shaken, because the
storm came out of nowhere and he
was trying to get across the bridge,"
Malloy said. "He said it was one of the
weirdest feelings."
In addition to melting his phone and
leaving him with a slight mark on the
palm of his hand that held the phone,
Grantham was also left groggy, dizzy
and with a ringing in his ears. Plus his
scooter was temporarily put out of
commission (it still works, but will need
approximately $600 in repairs, which
insurance won't cover as the lightning
strike is considered an act of God).
"I got home; I immediately called
my doctor. He told me to get in bed,
lie down, stay still and be calm,"
said Grantham. He scrupulously
followed his doctor's orders for the
next three days, until the doctor told
him to slowly ease back into activity,
to be careful and not exert himself.
Grantham said he has an appointment
today, Aug. 8. Although the symptoms
are diminishing, he still is suffering
dizziness, headaches and ringing in
his ears.


Not the first time
When Grantham was 13 in 1965, he
and several siblings were inside their
home when a thunderstorm started.
A bolt of lightning struck the house,
traveled through the pipes and struck
Grantham and his brothers and sisters.
The strike knocked several of them
around the room. That strike hurt, he
said, but paled in comparison to last
Friday.
"That (the lightning strike in 1965)
was nothing like this," he said. "It burnt
us then."
Afterward, when he and his siblings
recovered, they laughed, cried and got
down on their knees and thanked God.
Literally.
"We were fortunate," he said. Not so
a friend who was next door in a field,
pitching hay with a pitchfork. The same
bolt of lightning struck his friend. "It
struck him in the head, killed him. I
saw him get struck."
He said it was like watching an
execution in the electric chair.
Both lightning strikes have made
Grantham appreciate life.
"I thank God I'm alive. For the past
two days I've thanked him," he said.
"I've thanked God he spared my life. He
didn't have to do it."

That didn't dampen the spirit
of the fans who attended from
11 different states who spent the
days in the sun in Bartow.
In a rare chance to sit down
for a while, Jennie Walker, an
organizer of the games in town,
said while part of the Home Run
Derby was taken out Friday,
she was relieved the forecast
of a weekend full of rain didn't


happen. Cooling off and resting
for a little while, she was able
to watch about four innings
of Bartow's AAA game Sunday
against Louisiana with a handful
of volunteers who have spent the
early part of the week running
around and serving anyone and
everyone there. On Saturday,
games lasted until almost
midnight.
The World Series has two
more days and six to eight
more games left. The two extra
games are scheduled in case
an extra game is needed in the


double-elimination tournament.
One day costs $7 per person
and people will be quite pleased
of the prices of refreshments.
The cost of one cool drink at a
Rays' game can get you four cool
drinks at these games.

Bartow City Commissioner Wayne Lewis
wore a Dixie Youth Baseball World
Series shirt to Monday's city commission
meeting. Here he is talking with Mayor

Series is in town and it's been a good
event so far. There are a lot of exciting
kids out there;' he said.

areas of Broadway and Clower at the
top of the list, the plan is to get those
fixed before school gets back into ses-
sion by Aug. 20.
Empower Construction, which is fix-
ing the roads, told Martin it would take
two weeks and Tuesday he said he was
told that is "very practical." However,
that is something he plans to talk to the
contractor about. There could be some
holdups in some areas. There is one
area on Wilson Drive around Pizza Hut
where some work has to be done and
that could create problems. But that is
something Martin and the contractor
will handle.
"That is a highly-used road right now
and he may elect to do some night time
work to help congestion."
The city, which is using money which


comes from gas taxes, has $780,630.88
funded; another $170,597.60 is un-
funded. City Manager George Long
and Finance Director David Wright
are to look for money for the extra
$170,0597.60 that is needed. However,
Martin said there could be some money
available from other Public Works
projects that came in under budget.
There will be a some traffic problems
with the resurfacing going on for the
next couple of weeks, however, they
should be minimal.
"We'll be managing traffic," Martin
said Tuesday. "They'll.detour traffic
around and work on one lane at a
time."
He said there will be a flagman and
if detours are necessary, those will be
used, too.
"Our goal is to get the work done
before the start of school," he said,
which is Aug. 20.
The resurfacing work has a life
expectancy of about 10 years.

Cadets preparing for school this week


187 incoming freshman taking part in basic training this week


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYNDEMOCRAT.COM
At 9 a.m. it was already more than
90 degrees outside and 187 incom-
ing freshmen, not yet cadets, were
lined up behind the Summerlin
Academy building doing Cadet Basic
Training.
Monday through Thursday from
about 8 a.m.-2 p.m. the incoming
students of the public military
school are taking lessons on how to
be cadets and get acquainted with
what the school offers. On Thursday
afternoon about 5 p.m. there will
be a ceremony ending the training.
School opens in Polk County on
Aug. 20.
"We have 187 incoming cadets
and 78 volunteers and there will be
physical training for the incoming
ninth graders," said Cadet Lt. Col.
Triana Rye, a senior who headed up,
organizing the program this year.
The students will be taught the
proper way of being. cadets in the
school as well as getting the knowl-
edge of what the school offers,
essentially the same as students get
entering other public high schools
in the county.
"Right now they have absolutely
no idea of what they're doing," she
said. "This is a high school ... not an
army. We tell the leaders to be polite
and we don't yell at them, but they
are authoritative."
Cadets in all grades teach the
incoming cadets what to do and
they train them properly. Teachers
also give them information on what
the school offers academically.
"We have so many opportunities
at this school to help the others
become better citizens," she said.
That portion is what could be
the biggest difference between
Summerlin and the other public
schools.
"We're more aggressive," Cadet
Sgt. Maj. Michael Copeland said.
"There's more you can gain," Rye
said.-"I know on paper what can
work extremely well. If I want to go

for a job interview I know what to
say and I know what to do."
She said the training isn't neces-
sarily there to help students enter
the military, but because students
are more involved in organizing
by being in charge and arranging
events they get more of a lesson.
"My sister went to this school for
four years and learned everything.
She never wanted to go into the
Army and right now she's in college
studying to be a veterinarian."
She said she wants to go into the
Army, however, because that has
been her desire for a long time.
In the week of activities at the
school students will be issued uni-
forms. There are three types: Class
A, Class B and Class C uniforms.
They cover everything from basic
dress at school to formal wear. They
get more of the Class C uniforms.
Students are taught the right way
to dress, which helps with all the
physical exercise students do at the
school.
"The reason for that is we do a lot
of physical training," Rye said.
"It's our job to teach how to do
it," Copeland said.

Stepping Out for Education
The Polk Education Foundation is
throwing its third annual "Stepping Out
for Education" event, a Dancing with the
Stars type fundraiser on Sept. 21 at 6 p.m.
at The Lakeland Center.
Just as in Dancing with the Stars, six
Polk County "celebrities" have been
paired with professional dance partners
and have been taking dance lessons
funded by the PEF and provided by
Lakeland Ballroom Dance.
Besides being brave enough to make the
commitment to participate in this event,
the community dancers had to have had
little to no prior formal dance training.
"Just knowing that 10 weeks ago, the
dancers knew nothing about ballroom
dance, and then seeing them perform all


the choreography was just amazing," said
Susan Copeland, executive director of
the PEE 'And, they had on full ballroom
costumes, it was all very beautiful."
The Polk Education Foundation raises
money to provide programs that sup-
port the work of the Polk County School
district. In light of many corporations
and foundations cutting back on the
amount of support they can give, the PEF
branched out to include this event and
has now made it an annual fundraiser.
Proceeds from the 2012 competi-
tion will go to support the Education
Foundation's reading tutoring program
for struggling kindergarten through third
grade readers at some schools, and their
Free Teacher Market, a store where as
the name indicates, provides supplies for
teachers that are free.
Professional dance judges will preside
over the competition and name the top
male and female dancers and an overall
winner. The audience will vote for an
'Audience Favorite."
Another award, the "People's Choice
Award" will be given to the celebrity who
earns the most $1 votes.
The public can vote for their favorite
at www.polkeducationfoundation.org up
until noon on Sept. 22.
The six dancers are Ashley Bell, former
marketing analyst for Polk County
Schools; Lauren Oakley Schwenk, Oakley
Rhinehart Cassidy, LLC; Jan Hyman, CPA
and Polk Education Foundation board
member; Jerome Ferson, The Ledger;
Gary Boyer, Boyer Building Corp.; and
Ken Suarez, Fox 13.
Tickets can be bought at www.polk

World Series play rolls on


The excitement of the 2012 Dixie
Youth Baseball World Series is still
in full swing at the George Pittas
Complex near the Bartow Civic Center.
Teams from 11 states in the Southeast have
each sent teams to this double elimina-
tion tournament, which started play last
Saturday.
Sadly, many of our new friends from
places as far west as Texas and as far north
as Virginia have already started making
their trip home, the early exit meaning
these youngsters were not able to make
the dream completely come true. For all,
though, it has a been a good experience,,
one that will remain a positive memory for
many years to come.
While play actually started on Saturday,
the teams arrived in the area by Friday af-
ternoon. They gathered at Joker Marchant
Stadium in Lakeland for the start of
opening ceremonies and it was a welcome
fitting for an event like the World Series.
Mother Nature, however, had other plans.
Despite the disruption by the weather,
many of the planned events took place, to
the delight of players and supporters.
The Home Run Derby kicked off the
action. A specially-constructed fence was
in place at the required distance and each
players was told they would receive pitches
until they recorded 10 "outs." Anything
over the fence was a home run and the
player with the most home runs was the
winner. With gray skies turning black, only
Alabama's Grayson Hooks could complete
his at-bat as Truitt Murphy-Caraway from
Arkansas was called off the field. The play-
ers and coaches retreated to the first base
dugout to continue getting acquainted
and waited out the rain for about an hour.
The scheduled team meal went off shortly
after 4 p.m., postponing any on-field while
the players and coaches enjoyed their
dinner. At the end of the meal, -the tarp was
removed and players were called back for
the Home Run Derby. The event picked up
where it left off for the 10-year-olds with
each state sending their representatives to
the plate. After the first round, representa-
tives from three teams were tied, bringing
a "five out" tiebreaker. Mississippi's Slade
Wilks was the only player to homer in the
overtime, earning the title. The competi-
tion for the 12-year-olds was cancelled due
to time. The host Lakeland Flying Tigers
were scheduled to play their game and the
fence had to be removed for the players to
prepare for that game.
The teams were then aligned for the
"Parade of Teams," a traditional portion of
the opening ceremonies. Each team, carry-
ing their state flag, walked the perimeter of
the field with players and coaches identi-
fied. Hundreds of supporters in the stands
who braved the weather watched and
cheered as their team passed by. With all
teams in position, Dixie Youth Baseball of-
ficials welcomed the crowd and the teams.
A special ceremony was offered for two
recipients of Dixie youth Baseball scholar-
ships, awarded each year. Treay Stinson of
Bartow was among the 2012 honorees.

The visiting teams were invited to stay
for the Lakeland Flying Tigers game with
the Clearwater Threshers, but many
coaches opted for a night of rest. The Flying
Tigers game was delayed, but the game
was played with a Lakeland 6-2 win and
special fireworks display.
The Bartow Civic Center and Pittas com-
plex was abuzz with activity early Saturday
morning. National organizers took over the
operation to present, the 2012 World Series
in a manner consistent with the more than
50 such events that have been held in the
sanction's history. By game time in the
afternoon, everything was in place to start
activity with all four fields being utilized. A
total of 12 games were played on Saturday,
highlighted by a no-hot game thrown by
Tennessee Majors pitcher Casey Coleson.
Each game concluded with presentation of
home run balls to players who hit a round
tripper during the game. Bartow Majors
player Luke Myers had two on Saturday
night.
Play is scheduled to resume tonight at
6 p.m. as the remaining teams continue
their quest for the world championship.
Admission is $7 with children under the
age of six admitted free.

Judge candidates speak their minds


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM

In the three races where Polk County
voters will vote on judgeships the six candi-
dates spent their evening Thursday saying
each of them are qualified for seats on the
bench and spent it answering questions
about impartiality and explaining their
fairness in a relatively similar fashion.
Up for the election in the Aug. 14 are
county judge candidates Bob Grode and
William Twyford who will replace Timothy
Koons who is retiring. Circuit Court Judge
Group 7 candidates Mark Kaylor and
Katherine Combee who will replace Ernie
M. Jones Jr. who is retiring; and Circuit
Court Judge Group 27 candidates Larry
Helms, Bill Sites and Christine Trakas
Thornhill..
When asked whether the system of
electing judges on the county or circuit
court level was a fair way pick judges as
opposed to being appointed by the state all
the candidates felt the way it is done now is.
fairer as the people should have their say.
Twyford said the electorate voted down
that notion some years ago and he has no
problem with that decision because "I'm
here to follow the law."
His opponent in the county judge race,
Grode said, he echoes his opponent's feel-
ing, "But speaking about the county court
those people running need to be vetted.
You're in the people's court. A lot of these
people may no be represented by an at-
torney and it may be their first time court."
Circuit candidates also felt having these
people nominated elected was preferable.
"There was a time in Florida when
they were appointed and we changed the
system because it was rife with the good old
boy system," Helms said. "Now it preferable.
The current court judges don't answer the
people but to the law."
One of his opponents, Sites, said when
he first started practicing law, he was told
a lawyer had to run and not be appointed.
Trial court level judges were closer to the
people and were dealing with the "meat
and potatoes" of people's lives.
"The appellate court may be on a dif-
ferent level and may be further away from
people's lives," he said.
The third opponent in that race, Thomill,
said judges should be accountable to the
people but mentioned, as the other did,
that they are not working for the people.
'As far as accountability it is to the law.
Sometimes we don't make what is the
popular opinion and that's why sometimes
it's difficult. But as long as we listen that's
what we have to do."
Combee said the state constitution
has a provision that every person has a
choice and that should be as it is while her
opponent Kaylor said he ascribes to "never
give up the right to vote."
"I went through the appointment process
and Gov. (Charlie) Crist didn't pick me," he
said. "I decided to run."
He said an appointment would take him
out of the area where he is familiar the
m ; .- "


10th Judicial Circuit and this way he isn't.
He just wants to be assured the electorate
knows who they are voting for.
'As long as they are informed," he said.
Circuit Court judges serve a district that
is made up Polk, Hardee and Highlands
counties.
On the question of whether a middle-
income or poorer candidate can get a fair
trial, candidates all agreed that this was a
perception and not the reality in the trial
court level.
"We have process in place where every-
one gets legal counsel and I'm not sure I
know a group of lawyers more dedicated to
what they do," Helms said referring to the
public defender's office. "They do it with
relish and what is best for the defendant.
The perception that if you hire an expensive
lawyer you get better representation I think
juries can see through that."
Combee said the perception could come
from the fact that those doing pro-bono
work or work in the public defender's office
may have more to deal with than private
attorneys.
"They are excellent attorneys but they
have a lot of clients," she said.
All the candidates have taken on pro-
bono cases and they said they have not put
less effort into those cases.
"Helms is correct that there is a percep-
tion," Sites said. "On the whole, day in and
day out we ensure to the best of our ability
that every client gets the due process of the
law."
Kaylor said some of this perception may
come from the fact that the legal process
has gotten quite expensive.
"The other part of this question are
people getting caught in the cracks of the
legal system?" Kaylor asked. "Perhaps they
are because the cost has gotten expensive.
Has the judicial system gotten expensive
begs the question of efficiency, economics
and the 21st century."
He was referring mostly to the idea of
businesses going to court especially against
large companies that can not only drag out
cases but have staff attorneys where smaller
businesses cannot compete economically.
However, Grode focuses his attention on
helping people realize the perception.
"To make changes we have to educate
the public," he said. "I presently give
information to people. On the whole it is a
perception and that can be changed. We as
members of the bar are doing that on our
own voluntarily."
In questions judging the impartiality of
the candidates who will rise from lawyers
showing a side and what influences their
backgrounds the candidates explained
changing their mode of thinking would not
be difficult to accomplish.
All of them felt that as successful lawyers
they have to look at all sides of cases
before arguing their sides and changing
to an impartial judge is an extension
of that and being able to listen to both
sides is paramount. In showing what has
influenced them they cited generally the
same Supreme Court decisions that stand

out most to them: Brown vs. the Board
of Education, the Terri Schiavo case and
Gideon vs. Wainwright. In Brown vs. the
Board of Education, the U.S. Supreme
Court ruled in 1954 law making is OK for
separate public schools for black and white
students was unconstitutional overturning
an 1896 Supreme Court decision. In the
Schiavo case, Terri who was in a vegeta-
tive state for eight years was the question
of whether her husband had the right to
terminate her life. His right to terminate
her life was opposed by her parents. Florida
legislation for the parents was struck down
by both the state and U.S. Supreme Court.
In Gideon vs. Wainwright the Supreme
Court ruled in 1963 that state courts are
required under the Sixth Amendment
to provide counsel in criminal cases for
defendants who are unable to afford their
own attorneys.
"My class was the first to be bused in
Polk County," Combee said. "I got to see the
result first hand."
Kaylor agreed that was a big decision,
but added in the Gideon vs. Wainwright
decision it was a "wonderful decision to
level the field of justice."
"Brown perhaps had most impact on


me," Helms said. "I grew up in Alabama
and it was not the most friendly place for a
lot of people. I remember the Birmingham
riots and Rosa Parks and it had a big
impression on me growing up."
Sites and Grode cited the Brown decision,
but added others that influenced them.
Grode cited the situation with President
Nixon that showed no one is higher than
the law while Sites cited Roe vs. Wade and
the Citizens United positions that have
changed the way the country can run.
Thornhill said she was probably most
influenced in the Schiavo case because the
ruling went against what Gov. Jeb Bush.
County judges serve six-year terms
and make $134,280 per year. They handle
misdemeanors and traffic offenses as well
as small claims and civil disputes less than

Delgado takes over



Dr. Wright's practice


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Stepping in to take over the late
Dr. Victor Wright's podiatric practice
is a veteran Lakeland foot and ankle
specialist who has long been estab-
lished in Polk County.
Dr. Gabriel Delgado, who also
owns Mid Florida Foot and Ankle
Clinic on Mockingbird Lane in
Lakeland, took over Wright's practice
on Aug. 1. He will continue his
practice in the Lakeland clinic he
founded in 2000, and add Wright's
practice to his clientele, he said
recently.
"I had known Dr. Wright for many
years and respected him and his
work highly," Delgado said. "It was
a pleasure to be able to step into his
practice after his tragic and untimely
death."
Dr. Wright died April 28, 2012.
Delgado, a 42-year-old former
University of Florida baseball player,
said he had always wanted to go
into medicine, and because "I had
foot problems when I was young,"
podiatric medicine "was the perfect
fit for me."
After completing his undergradu-
ate work at UE he spent his four
years of medical school at Berry
University in Miami and then did his
residency at the Veterans Hospital
in West Palm Beach followed by a
year of additional study at St. Luke's
Hospital in Phoenix.
"I worked with someone in
Lakeland after I finished my residen-
cies, and decided that I wanted to
establish my practice in my home-
town," he said. He started the Mid-
Florida Clinic and as it flourished,
he also established a professional
relationship with Dr. Wright. "I knew
Dr. Wright and we had a similar
perspective in our work. We saw the
work the same way."
When the opportunity arose to
consider taking over Wright's Bartow
practice, he was among those who
approached Wright's family about
taking over the practice.
"Several practitioners offered help
with the practice, but the family
ultimately called me and asked me if
I was interested in taking over, which
of course I was," he said. His take-
over was official on Aug. 1, although
he had been seeing patients at
Wright's West Main Street offices for .
several weeks before it was official.
He has maintained Wright's existing
staff.
"That was a real plus," he said,
"since they already know the pa-
tients and all we had to do was some

retraining in how I'm used to doing
things. They are great to work with,
so the transition has been smooth.
"I am so glad to be here in Bartow,"
he said. Presently he holds clinic
hours in Bartow on Monddays and
Thursday.
Another reason it was an easy
transition for him and his Bartow
patients was, he said, because
he was already on staff at Bartow
Regional Medical Center, where he
has conducted his surgeries for more
than a dozen years.
"I love working at BRMC. The staff
there is great and it's like working in
an ambulatory surgery center," he
explained.
Dr. Delgado's services include
sports medicine, vein therapy,
wound care, all medical conditions
of the leg and biomechanics, in ad-
dition to routine foot and ankle care.
Delgado's 510 W. Main Street office
hours are 8 a.m.- 5 p.m., Mondays
and Thursdays. He says he dedicates
Thursday mornings to surgery and
spends the rest of the day seeing
patients.

Serious complications of heartburn meds are rare


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Is it true that
those of us who have to take Prilosec
every day are in danger of getting a bone
fracture? Should we consider stopping
it? Anon.
ANSWER: We need to give readers a
clue to what we're talking about. The
subject is GERD, gastroesophageal
reflux disease, something most call
"heartburn." It's the eruption of stom-
ach acid and digestive juices into the
esophagus, a place not built to with-
stand those powerful fluids.
Proton-pump inhibitors are the most
effective suppressants of acid produc-
tion. There are eight: Prilosec (omepra-
zole), Nexium (esomeprazofe), Prevacid
(lansoprazole), Dexilant (dexlanso-
prazole), Protonix (pantoprazole) and
Aciphex (rabeprazole). These medicines
have made life livable for people who
don't respond to other strategies or
medicines for heartburn control.
All effective medicines have side
effects. A side effect of proton-pump
inhibitors is weakening of the hip bone
with possible fracture of it. It's not a
common occurrence. When it happens,
it happens to those who have taken
high doses of these medicines for five to

HEALTH

Donohue


seven years. As a preventive step, take
a proton-pump inhibitor at the lowest
dose that controls symptoms and for the
shortest time possible. You can resume
taking it if and when heartburn returns.
You also can try acid suppressants
that don't have this side effect: Tumrns,
Rolaids and Maalox. Don't eat foods that
cause you to have heartburn. Frequent
offenders are excessive amounts of caf-
feine, chocolate, alcohol, peppermint,
fatty foods, citrus fruits and tomatoes.
Or try a different family of acid sup-
pressants. Zantac (ranitidine), Pepcid
(famotidine) and Tagamnet (cimetidine)
are examples.
I wouldn't use the unapproved


treatment mentioned in the letter you
sent. It appears that its distributor is
playing on exaggerated fear.
The booklet on heartburn explains
this illness and its treatment in detail.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I always buy
orange juice marked "not from con-
centrate." I read somewhere that such
juice is lacking in some things. Can you
explain? EH.
ANSWER: "Concentrate" indicates
that water has been evaporated from the
juice. That extends its life, and makes
it easier to ship and store. Prior to sale,
it is reconstituted with water. Or it may
be a frozen product to which the buyer
restores water.
There's little difference in the nu-
tritional value and vitamin content of
concentrated juice. I just checked. It's
the kind of orange juice I drink every
morning.


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My father
was colorblind. Of his four daughters
and one son, two of his daughters were
colorblind. I just found out that two of
his three grandsons and eight of his nine
great-grandsons are colorblind.
How common is this? S.
ANSWER: Colorblindness affects
8 percent of men, but only 0.4 percent
of women. It is, therefore, 20 times
more common in men than women.
It's surprising that two of your
sisters have it. Less surprising is
the number of grandsons and
great-grandsons with it.
Most colorblind people get along in
life without much trouble. And most
have some degree of color perception.
A very few see the world only in grays,
black and whites.

Hey, it's your leg calling


Forget the talk about cellphones
causing brain tumors, which if you
listen to physicists, is impossible
because the phones don't generate
enough energy to break the
DNA bonds necessary to cause
mutations.
No, the real issue is "phantom
vibration syndrome." If you habitu-
ally carry your phone in your pocket,
you probably know what I'm talking
about: You feel your phone vibrating
against your leg, only to realize it
wasn't or, even weirder, it isn't even
in your pocket.
The experience appears to be quite
common. A recent survey of under-
graduates at Indiana and Purdue
universities found that 89 percent of
students reported feeling the sensa-
tion at least once. On average, they felt
the nonexistent buzzing once every
two weeks, though some say it oc-
curred much more often.
Researchers aren't sure how to
explain what's happening. It could be
a misinterpretation of sensory input, a
form of social contagion or some kind
of hallucination. One factor that seems
to play a role is how much emotional
importance heavy cellphone users
place on their text messages. The
greater the import, the more often
they feel phantom buzzing.
Behavioral scientists say two
personality types tend to be most

sensitive to the "syndrome": Extroverts
who check their phones a lot because
keeping in touch with friends is a big
part of their lives. And neurotics who
worry about relationships and status
and so put greater emphasis upon any
communications they receive.

treated in hospital ERs last year due
to "distracted walking," reports the

of distracted walking injuries is likely


under-reported, with many patients

their injuries.

Students, teachers


to hitch up sleeves


under Common Core


Tests coming next year likely to be

more difficult than the FCATs


4 "' ,'
I.... .. .. .. ..



















Michael Delacerda, from Fort Meade Middle Senior High School, brushes up for the FCAT exams.
With the Common Core curriculum coming next year it could get a little tougher for students and
teachers.


By CATHY PALMER
CO()RESPONDE'NT
While everyone seems to be
still reeling from the latest Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test results,
the Polk County Schools Curriculum
Coordinator says, it's only going to get
harder for both students and teachers.
Curriculum Coordinator Paula
Leftwich says the Common Core, a
federal standards program, will force
both students and teachers to "hitch up
their sleeves and keep plowing."
She says the new FCAT standards
implemented last school year "are just
the beginning" of changes to come for
both students and faculty.
"The Common Core tests, PARCC
(Partnership for Assessment for
Readiness for College and Career) tests
are much more difficult than what we've
already seen in FCAT," she says, adding
that PARCC will be the testing vehicle
used in Florida in school year 2014-15.
Some of the PARCC requirements are
already being implemented in some
Polk schools, Leftwich says, primarily in
kindergarten and first grade classes.
"Common Core has fewer standards
and they are national in scope," she
explains. "The expectations are higher
and more rigorous than the latest
FCATs," she says. "And they cover dif-
ferent topics and concepts."
She added that Polk schools will have


to make a gradual transition to the new
standards and change the focus of the
curriculum.
"We'll actually be changing the meth-
ods of teaching more than the content,"
she adds.
She says the PARCC will have a strong
reading curriculum and will focus on
non-fiction texts. "Instead of reading
fiction, the new reading programs will
have content that is far more complex
than what is presently in use," she
explains.
Polk County committed to the U.S.
Department of Education's Race to the
Top as a means of obtaining as much as
$700 million in federal support.
"That includes not only Common
Core assessments but also teacher
training and a teacher assessment
system based on the students' achieve-
ments," Leftwich explains.
"This reflects a wholesale transforma-
tion of public education," the veteran
educator says. "This concentrates on
college and career success so we can be
competitive globally."
She says the new focus will put pres-
sure on both the students and teachers.
"We're going to be expecting a lot
from each and every student. They
are going to have to perform or not be
promoted or graduated."
But the focus isn't all on the students,
she adds, and there will be additional
support for teachers as well.


."We'll be ramping up our support
for teachers. We'll continue to drill on
teacher development. We'll be targeting
or teacher training more usefully and
effectively," Leftwich explains. "Our dis-
trict support team will focus on specific
needs and those schools who need the
help the most. There will be a different
structure for support services that will
see professional development based on
specific needs in specific schools."
She explained that two area schools
already have been identified that
need targeted support in their reading
programs.
"Alturas Elementary School and
Auburndale Central need help with
their reading program and they will
have their school day extended by an
hour to provide intensive support to
bring up the reading levels."
Even though the school system is
working hard to prepare for the steadily


climbing requirements, Leftwich says
more and more parents need to be
involved in their child's education.
"More than ever, parents need to
understand and help their kids," she
says. "And the kids need to understand
that school is their job.
"They need a commitment to attend
classes and be prepared to do more and
more reading outside of school. Parents
need to hold their kids' feet to the fire
so the children can wring everything
they possibly can out of every school
day."
She added that there were lots of
- resources available for parents via the
schools' website and through their
individual schools.
"They can access materials that can
help their kids. They need to know
where their kids need to be in their
schooling, and be prepared to help
them every step of the way."


Common Core State Standards termed 'game changer'


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
Dramatic changes are in store
for the immediate and near future
for not just Polk County Schools,
but all Florida schools once Florida
implements Common Core State
Standards; standards Associate
Superintendent for Learning David
Lewis said will be "significantly
different than anything we've seen
before." In addition, Lewis said these
changes will be transformative for
teachers as well as students.
In his presentation at the Polk
County School Board on June 12,
accompanied by Sherry Moser and
Kerryn Bowden, Lewis brought to the
board's attention that Florida is one
of 45 states participating.
The 2012-13 school year will be
a training year for teachers, yet
according to Lewis, Polk County
Schools has already been working
with teachers. In August, someone
will be coming in to do further
training. However, School Board
Chairwoman Hazel Sellers asked
would that be enough. She wanted to
know whether it would be possible
to get intense training, especially for
mathematics.
Board Member Frank O'Reilly


wondered whether colleges are aware
and telling its students who are plan-
ning on becoming teachers what they
will need to be ready. Both Moser
and Bowden said they have been in
contact with the local colleges.
There will be significant changes
the board was told. Lewis said that
currently students are being required
to learn and know a wide range of
material, but with little depth. He
called it "a mile wide and an inch
deep." That will change with com-
mon core standards. As an example,
Lewis said that perhaps instead
of having to read 10 novels in an
English class, they will only be re-
quired to read five novels. However,
they will have to have a greater
depth of understanding, and will be
required to explain and justify what
they have learned.
"Our kids won't know as much, but
what they will know, they will know
better," summarized Board Member
Tim Harris.
All this is going to be a paradigm
shift, it was acknowledged.
"What you are asking students
to do is perform at a level we have
never asked previous generations,"
said Lewis. That included students
who graduated within the past five
to 10 years; there are significant


differences, it was mentioned.
It is a new approach to education,
one that Moser believed warranted.
"We are applying a 20th century
model to a 21st century learner for a
21st century job, and that (the 20th cen-
tury model) is not working," she said.
Another plus to the new standard,
it was brought up, will be the ability
to measure and compare to other
states also adopting the Common
Core standards.
"It's going to be great, because now
we'll be able to compare apples to
apples," said Kerryn Bowden.
Board Member Dick Mullenax did
not appear persuaded. When he
referred to a comment Sellers had


earlier made about teaching algebra,
he challenged that after more than
2,000 years, it was necessary to find a
new way of teaching it.
In response, Lewis said what was
being emphasized was not so much
a new way of teaching algebra, as it
was getting students to know why
rather than just how. It will be a new
approach. Instead of teachers lectur-
ing, they will serve as facilitators,
drawing out students, having them
do more of their own research. He
called it a "mind shift."
"This is going to be significantly
different," said Lewis. "It's going to
be a game changer."

Lunches are healthier and cost more School lunch prices


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

The days of mystery meat and plastic
cheese in school lunches are long gone
and have been replaced by healthy and
farm-fresh local foods, Polk County
Schools nutritionists say.
"We're adding increased fruits and
vegetables to our school lunches and
are using fresh Florida produce to do
that," says schools nutrition coordina-
tor Jenna Kaczmarski. "We want our
students to accept and eat healthier
options and are using that to prepare
food that kids will enjoy and want to
eat."
"We are excited that this year the
Florida Department of Agriculture is
working with school districts to make it
easier and more cost effective to source
produce from within the state," she
adds. "We'll be featuring 'Fresh from
Florida' fruits and vegetables through-
out the school year such as corn, green
beans, eggplant, oranges and tanger-
ines and more."
This year's school menus will include
fresh fruit and vegetable choices daily,
a selection of nutrient rich beans, red,
orange and green vegetables. Fresh
entree salads also will be served daily,
she says, adding that all Polk school
cafeterias will serve only whole grain
breads, all of which are baked on site
daily. Menus also will be low in saturat-
ed fats and have completely eliminated
trans fats.
"We know we'll face some challenges
to meet the new requirements on a
tight budget, but our school nutri-
tion program will be working hard to
serve healthy meals to our students,"
Kaczmarski said.
Polk County has allocated about $20

School lunch prices will increase slightly this year in Polk
County schools.


million for the coming school year
to provide 56,000 lunches and 50,000
breakfasts each school day.
Lunches for elementary school
students will cost $1.80 each and sec-
ondary school students will pay $2.10
for lunch. Breakfasts are all $1 for both
elementary and high schools. Faculty
and adult visitors may also purchase
lunches for $2.75 each, Kaczmarski


said. The prices for lunch
will increase a bit this year.
For elementary students it
is up from $1.70. Secondary
students will pay $2.10 and
the cost for adults will be
$2.75. Reduced lunches will
continue to be 40 cents.
More than 69 percent
of Polk's students qualify
for reduced price or free
lunches, she adds. Meals
are purchased through a
pre-pay system, like using
a debit card, she explained,
so those qualifying for lower
prices are not identified.
"Kids go to the counter,
get their lunch and, at the
check-out, they give their
name or student ID and the
computer automatically
deducts the price from the
balance."
Parents may apply for the
lower priced or free lunch
programs at their student's
individual schools.
The school system
publishes a monthly meal
menu on the board's website,
www.polk-net.com keyword:
nutrition, where parents and
students can check to see
what will be available each


day.
"That way, if they don't buy their
lunch every day, they can pick and
choose the days they want to,"
Kaczmarski says.
The school meal program hopes "to
change the way kids think about food
and nutrition and provide access to
healthy choices, we'll put them on the
path to a healthier future," she said.

to increase next year
By BILL ROGERS
BROGERS@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
Students and adults will be pay-
ing a little more for lunch in Polk
County public schools this year.
The School Board of Polk County
approved a price increase of 10
cents May 22.
Foodservice Director Marcia
Smith noted the district currently
receives a reimbursement of $2.46
for a free lunch from USDA.
"The new legislation requires that
we begin increasing the price of
paid lunches to ensure that suffi-
cient funds are provided to the food-
service account for paid lunches,"
she said.
The prices for lunch for elemen-
tary students will go up to $1.80
from $1.70. Secondary students will
pay $2.10 and the cost for adults
will be $2.75. Reduced lunches will
continue to be 40 cents.
According to Smith, 68 1/2 per-
cent of Polk's students participate in
the free and reduced meals pro-
gram. Smith noted the percentage
has gone up over the past several
years. It was 58 percent in the 2005-
06 school year.
Polk does have a high percentage
of students, but Smith said it is not
the highest in the state.
The prices for breakfast will
remain the same as last year $1 for
elementary and secondary, a la carte
prices for adults and 30 cents for
reduced.
The prices for after school snack
will also stay the same as.during the
2011-12 year 70 cents for elemen-
tary and secondary and 15 cents for
reduced.









700 buses ready to hit the roads


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

School bus schedules will be
posted at http://www.polk-fl.net/
prior to the start of the opening of
school.

Early on the morning of Aug. 20,
thousands of Polk County kids will
climb into those big yellow school
buses and be carefully delivered to
their respective schools for the start of
a new academic year.
But, during the summer months
while those kids are enjoying their time
away from the schools, the Polk County
School System's transportation depart-
ment has been working to make sure
their 700 school buses are ready to start
their morning and afternoon rounds.
Lum Thornhill, assistant to
Transportation Director Rob Davis, says
most kids will catch the bus where they
did last year and those new students
will have already been notified of the
location of their bus stops well before
the Aug. 20 school start date.
"The schools individually notify their
students of their bus assignments and
stop locations," he explained, adding
"most of the routes are unchanged
from last year."
The school system's 521 regular
routes are pretty static, according to
Thornhill, "but there could be some
tweaks in the routes, depending on the
placement of the children to be picked
up."
If parents haven't received notifica-
tion from their schools, they are asked
to contact them for route and schedule
information, he added.
The school board maintains 700
buses, but only 521 are on the road on
regular routes, Thornhill says.
"The others are spares and are on
standby for special events or are called
into service when needed."
Most Polk students who live
two miles or more from their as-
signed school are authorized to ride


buses, according to
Thornhill, but there
are exceptions to
the rule for students
with special needs.
Most children will
have minimal bus '
rides, but there are -
some exceptions,
Thornhill said.
"We do transport
some students .i..r
all the way from
Poinciana to =
Bartow," he said,"
and they have a - .
substantial time on. .
the bus." -
Picking up
thousands of kids
for school each
day doesn't come
cheap. The school
board spends about
$39 million each -
year to keep kids on
their way to school
each day.
"It costs us about School officials are w
$750 per child each of school. Parents cal
year," says Rob
Davis, the Polk
School Board's Transportation Director.
"'That's less than the state average
* which is $918 per child."
The school buses run on diesel
fuel, Thornhill says, which costs the
board $3.48 per gallon. But the board
is looking into alternative fuels. He
says last year, two buses operated on
compressed natural gas, but refueling
locations are scarce.
"He adds that the board is continu-
ing to explore the potential for other
alternate fuels.
Fuel isn't the only cost included in
the overall bus department's budget.
Thornhill says the board has 521 regu-
lar bus drivers and also pays for 162
bus attendants who accompany some
of the drivers.
The drivers and attendants are
schooled in bus operations and

interaction with students. Thornhill
said the school system is "always
looking for bus drivers." He said
the drivers undergo 40 hours
of classroom instruction, drive
buses eight hours without chil-
dren aboard and eight hours with
children before they are certified to
transport students.
While the board controls the
training of the drivers, parents are
also reminded that students are
also expected to learn "the rules of
the road."
"We let parents know that we
expect normal classroom behavior
from students when they are on the
bus," Thornhill said.
"The bottom line is we want kids
to be safe on our buses and we
expect them to behave."


Spessard Holland to lose crossing guard


By JEFF ROSLOW
JROSLOW@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
One of the two crossing guards will not be at Spessard Holland Elementary
School this year as traffic studies show the one at E. E Griffin Road and Finger
Lane is not necessary.
The School Crossing Guard Committee made that decision over the summer
and it is also taking away a crossing guard at Kathleen Road and Kathleen Pines
for students walking to Kathleen Elementary School and at Lime Street and
Mongomery Avenue for Philip O'Brien Elementary.
Amy Shafer, a Polk County Engineer who is the chairperson of the Crossing
Guard Commission, said data had indicated there was not enough traffic at that
intersection at Spessard Holland that a crossing guard is needed. She also said that
she and Tommy Walker, who is also on the committee, went to the site to physi-
cally count the traffic.
"We have- computer data counters and we collect the data and volumes with
those counters" she said. "We can tell how many trucks and cars cross those roads.
We also do manual counts."
Shafer said the guards are on site for an hour and 15 minutes and at the EF
Griffin Road and Finger Lane there are eight cars that would have been turning in


that path.
"There were no cars around and that's kind of how we reached this recommen-
dation," she aid. There still will be a crossing guard at at County Road 540A and
Finger Lane, she said, and that's where students can safely cross the road this year.
While the number of vehicles sometimes help make the commission make the
calls on whether to stop having guards, sometimes there are different reasons. The
reason there is no longer a guard needed at Kathleen is because there was one
student crossing the road at the intersection in question and that student will no
longer attend the school next year.
The crossing guards are needed, she said, for students who walk to school,
not for those whose parents drive students to school. There are instances
where students whose parents drive them do not drop off the students in the
parent pickup line and drop them off in a street where a crossing guard will
help them cross the path.
At Spessard Holland there are 400 students who are in parent pickup, Shaffer
said, but, "the guards are there for the kids who are walking," she said.
The School Crossing Guard Committee is comprised of representatives from
the Polk County School Board, the Florida Department of Transportation, the
Board of County Commissioners Traffic Engineering Division, the Polk County
Sheriff's Office, and a number of the municipalities within Polk County.

Bus delays

The school district's website has
a page informing of bus delays at
http://www.polk-fl.net/parents/
generalinformation/busdelays.aspx.
It is updated on an as-needed
basis to notify parents and school
personnel of bus delays of more
than 30 minutes.
For the firstifew weeks.of school
there may be a high number of bus
delays, the district reports. The de-
lays are common due to theyerifica-
tion that students are getting off at
their assigned bus stop. The routes
should stabilize two to three weeks!
after the beginning of school.

Parents seek to enroll their children

convenience). In other cases, par-
ents may be dissatisfied with their
child(ren)'s current schoolss. Note that
these are not sufficient reason to grant

guidelines and judicial rulings, and
is therefore not able to grant transfer
requests based on the above reasons.

What the middle schools have


Polk County Public School system
offers many choices for students in
grades 6-8:
Curriculum
So many choices
Course choices include core academ-
ics, fine arts and vocational electives as
well as extracurricular activities. Our
schools are student-centered, family-
oriented and business-friendly. We
welcome volunteers.

Academics
Middle school students are required
by the State of Florida Department of
Education to take and pass three years
of core academic coursework in order to
be promoted to the next grade level.
These core classes include mathemat-
ics, social studies, English and science.
These courses are specific in content
and geared toward providing a solid
academic foundation for high school. In
addition, civics, economics and career
planning are required middle school
educational components.
Calendars show what is taught. See
it at http://publish.learningfocused.
com/307643
Polk middle schools provide a rich
academic plan for all students, includ-
ing those with special learning needs
as well as those who qualify for acceler-
ated or advanced learning activities.
Many middle schools offer intensive
reading and math courses for those
students who test at Level 1-2 on FCAT,
and most campuses offer one or more
high level courses for high school credit,
such as Algebra I, foreign language and
science. Link to the middle schools
online at http://www.polk-fl.net. Click
on SCHOOLS/Middle.

Academy Life
Many of our middle school campuses
have academies within schools, such as
career academies and STEAM acade-
mies (Science,Technology, Engineering,
Arts and Math).
Each is unique and offers something
to enhance and enrich your child's basic
education. Currently the middle school
STEAMacademies use SPRINGBOARD
as the core curriculum. This curriculum
is designed to provide students with
a rigorous academic foundation for
Advanced Placement coursework in
high school.

Magnet Schools
In Polk County we offer, through an
application process, three middle mag-
net schools. The three middle magnets
are International Baccalaureate Middle
Years Program schools, which provide.
an academic background for attending
students to transition to IB programs in
high school.


In addition, students may apply for a
range of middle school choice programs
in environmental studies, science,
technology, engineering, mathematics
and the arts to appeal to every student's
interests.

Elective Choices
Robotics, humanities, fine arts, choral
music, dance, band, orchestra, foreign
language, drama, journalism, technol-
ogy, ITV, culinary arts, agri-science
and integrated lab are just a few of the
elective courses our schools may offer.

Physical Education and Sports
The physical education curriculum
focuses on student fitness and healthy
living habits. All courses assess students
in the five health related areas of fitness
and reports are sent home/shared
with the families. Health standards are
integrated into the physical education
curriculum along with concepts pre-
sented by visiting nurses. Many middle
schools offer extramural sports.
Programs vary by school and include
basketball, volleyball, wrestling, soccer,
tennis, golf and track.

Extracurricular Student Activities
Students who have specialized inter-
ests may join clubs involved with topics
such as math, computers, chess, foreign
language, business, science, technology,
student government, academic honor
clubs, broadcasting, drama or music.

Helping at Home
Require your child to read something
that interests them for 30 minutes each
day
Have your child read aloud to you, or
to a sibling
Be sure your child has at least 8
uninterrupted hours of sleep at night
Involve your child in activities that
involve measurement, such as cooking
and building
Provide a place and a time for your
child to study every day that is away
from noise and distractions
Be sure your child comes to school
and arrives on time; try to avoid check-
ing your child out before the school day
is over
Ask about your child's homework and
tests
Sign up for Parent Portal at your
child's school to view current informa-
tion regarding your child's attendance,
grades, discipline, lunch account bal-

By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT

Like Gov. Rick Scott, Polk County
school officials say students may be
overtested andthat recent Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Tests don't
show a true picture of how good or bad
Polk County schools and students are.
Polk County School Board
Chairman Hazel Sellers and
Assistant Superintendent for
Learning David Lewis maintain
that changing FCAT standards.
"in mid-stream" have affected
the test results and fall short of
representing what Polk students
are actually learning and at what
level.
"The scoring this year is so dif-
ferent," Sellers said, "and we just don't
really know what they mean."
"Parents and taxpayers expect mea-
surement. We've got to measure, we've
got to find out who the best schools
are," Scott said at the Florida Press
Association awards banquet in May.
"We've got to have a good measurement
system, but we have to make sure we
don't have too much of it."
About half of Florida's ninth and 10th
graders failed the reading portion of
the new and more rigorous FCAT tests,
which has prompted school officials
statewide to call for scrapping the
controversial testing system.
"Testing is just flat out of hand,"
Sellers said. "The scoring this year is
so different, we really don't know.what
they mean. The scores were so heavily
weighted, we don't believe they show
the real picture."
She blames the changes in FCAT
results on changes to the testing which
were implemented in December, well
after the school year's curriculum had
been set and standards based on last
year's tests were expected.
"Our schools are doing so much more
and better than the tests reflect," the
board chairman says, "and there is just
too much emphasis on these tests."
Lewis says the school system recog-
nizes a need for "accountability, stability
and reliability" in the school's measure-
ments, but that sometimes mandates
resulted in "unintended consequences."
He said the "unintended conse-
quences" include residual costs for
additional courses and classwork that
is not budgeted and that the school


meeting these graduation requirements.

Testing
Students must pass the required
statewide assessments: Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT), FCAT 2.0, and /or Florida
End of Course (EOC) Assessments.
Depending on the school year and the
grade level, students who do not pass
the required Florida EOC Assessments
may not receive course credit. Passing
scores on the statewide assessments
are determined by the state Board of
Education. Specific information about
these requirements and scores can
be found at http://fcat.fldoe.org/pdf/
fcatpass.pdf.

Postsecondary Education Readiness
Test
The purpose of Florida's
Postsecondary Education Readiness
Test (P.E.R.T.) is to adequately as-
sess your student's academic skills in


system budget is already strained.
"We want accountability, but not in
this way," Sellers said. "These tests can't
and don't show everything the state says
they do."
Sellers and Lewis both agreed Polk
teachers are doing more and more.
"Our teachers have more training and
more technology," Sellers says, "and the
tests results are
results of their
I, work or their
students."
Sellers, who
is also a board
3 member of the
-) Florida School
Board Association,
says the associa-
tion passed a resolution at its summer
session calling on Scott and his educa-
tion administration "not to rely on these
tests as a measure of our success." She
also said the association hopes the
governor's staff will listen to the school
leaders when his office reviews the exist-
ing testing systems.
Lewis adds local administrations are
"frustrated" by existing measures of
accountability.
"We know our schools are good,"
Sellers says. "We have kindergartners
who can read and our students are
progressing properly.
"We just need a better way of reflect-
ing what our children can do. These
tests just can't show everything. We
need alternative ways for accountability
in our system. This is just not working,"
she said.
In recent news reports, many schools
had their overall grades fall, but both
Lewis and Sellers say those reports
are based on the mid-stream testing
changes and do not reflect lower perfor-
mances by either teachers or students.
"It's the tests," Sellers said. "It's just
the tests."
Lewis added that the system is con-
stantly monitoring district-wide trends
to "see what's working and what needs
to be adjusted."
He added the test results can, how;
ever, give administrators "a baseline"
from which to work.
The FCAT test results are used to
determine whether children are pro-
moted and in secondary school, are also
used to determine whether students
can graduate.


math, reading and writing. It is used
to determine if a student is ready for
college level course work. You cannot
pass or fail the P.E.R.T. You may access
additional information at: http://www.
fldoe.org/cc/pert.asp.

End of Course Assessments
Florida is transitioning into EOC
assessments for certain high school
courses. Currently, EOCs are adminis-
tered in Algebral, Biology, Geometry,
and U.S. History. Depending on the
school year and the grade level, a
student must earn a minimum scale
score in Achievement Level 3, in order
for credit to be awarded. This require-
ment also applies to all middle school
students seeking high school credit in
Algebra I, Biology and Geometry. You
may find additional information at:
http://fcat.fldoe.org/eoc/.

Two Options for Graduation
Students can choose the standard
four-year program or a three-year
program.
Students choosing the three-year
option will meet with school person-
nel and sign a form that includes an
explanation of the possible impact of
choosing the three-year route.
Regardless of the option chosen,
passing scores on the 10th grade Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT)
and a grade point average of 2.0 on a
4.0 scale are required to earn a standard
diploma.
Communicate with high school
administrators and guidance counsel-
ors about promotion and graduation
requirements.

Diploma Designations
Diploma designations will be

Teacher, paraprofessional get top nod


August 2012

2012-2013 School Calendar


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @LAKEWALESNEWS.COM

Lake Wales, be proud.
Local educational staff brought home
the two top honors at the Charter
Schools' "We're all Aces" awards cer-
emony held Tuesday night in Lakeland.
Jennifer Simpson, who has taught
fourth grade at Hillcrest Elementary
for four years, was named 2012 Charter
Schools' Teacher of the Year. Tina
Lehning, who is maintenance person
as well as a paraprofessional at Our
Children's Academy, was selected to be
the Support Person of the Year.
Both women go above and beyond,
and were recognized for that by their
peers, according
to their principals.
And the kids
are crazy about
them too, by all
accounts.
Of Simpson, -
Hillcrest principal
Barbara Jones says
"Her lessons are Jennifer Simpson
so innovative that
when I visit her
classroom, I don't want to leave." Jones
says Simpson has a gift for appealing to
a broad range of students.
Lake Wales Charter System
Superintendent Jesse Jackson said,
"Jennifer is one of the best teachers in
the state, and for that matter, nationally.
The kids are captivated by her."
Simpson said she has always wanted
a career in education. When she was
a child, her stuffed animals became
"students" lined up in front of her
chalkboard, and she recruited friends
for the same purpose. In fourth grade,
in the same Hillcrest classroom where
she now teaches, she was a student of
Mrs. Powell, who ignited her love of
mathematics. From that time forward,
she took every math class she could,
including advanced classes in high school,
and now wants to pass that passion on to
her students. Same for science.
Simpson believes children learn through
putting abstract concepts into real-life
form. For example, her students recently
created fold-out books where they wrote
down their nightly observations of the
cycles of the moon. On the outside flap,
they drew pictures of how the moon looked
during different phases; on the inside, they
hand-printed their descriptions.
Her favorite quote is by Benjamin
Franklin. "Tell me and I forget. Teach
me and I remember. Involve me and I
understand." Simpson was selected over
the summer to attend the Mickelson
Exxon Mobil Teacher Academy in Jersey
City, New Jersey. The all-expenses-
paid week of highly intensive teacher
workshops in science and math had an
effect on her determination to think
innovatively, Jennifer said.
"Also, something I wish I had thought to
say at the awards ceremony is that I believe


in our Lake Wales Charter System because
it gives me the opportunity to be who I am,
to teach my way. I've felt encouraged every
step of the way," she said.
Jennifer is married to Matt, who is
Minister to Students at First Baptist
Church of Lake Wales. The couple have
two children, Avery, age nine and Halle,
who is seven years old. Both children
attend Hillcrest.
Tina Lehning, a relatively new employee
of Our Children's Academy, was snapped
up immediately when principal Sharon
McManus found out she had been put on
the "displaced list" at an elementary school
due to budget cuts. McManus knew she
was the daughter of Craig Lehning, who
was a carpenter/maintenance person for
the Polk School
System for 30
years. She figured
the apple hadn't
fallen far from the
tree. Sure enough,
Tina Lehning knew
carpentry, plumb-
ing, and just about
any skilled trade Tina Lehning
one could name.
"What I didn't fully
realize at the time we hired her was her
gift for working with children," McManus
said. "The kids follow her like she's the Pied
Piper." Tina is a paraprofessional as well,
and divides time between maintenance
and the classroom.
Lehning said that when she was grow-
ing up, she could always ease her frustra-
tions or blow off steam by working in the
garden. Coping with a number of learning
disabilities, she found the hands-on
aspect of gardening brought her confi-
dence as well as peace. She now extends
that opportunity to the students at Our
Children's through her role as keeper of
the school's vegetable garden. If a child
becomes agitated or upset in class, she
will take them along with her to tend the
garden, weed, or help build planter boxes.
"I think they feel they can say anything to
me," she said.
"Tina always remains objective,"
McManus added. "If a child is having a
really bad day, she still treats them with
calmness and kindness."
Lehning recently attended an agricultur-
al conference in Highlands County and has
big plans for the garden, including adding
peaches and blueberries to the line-up
and trying out new techniques in organic
gardening. She has also learned that brown
rice can be grown here.
Of her job, Tina says, "I seriously can't
wait to get up in the morning to go see
'my babies,' (her students.) I'd love to
just put them all in my pocket and take
them home."
Lehning's long-time boyfriend Herbert
was recently hired by the school as well,
having had experience in maintenance
for the Polk County School system.
The two winners received cash
awards as well as gift baskets and
watches customized by Herff Jones.

Magnet, Choice, and Charter schools


Magnet and choice schools offer themed
learning environments, such as math,
science, technology, communication or the
arts. Students must apply to attend magnet
and choice schools. Charter schools operate
as autonomous public schools and work
under an accountability contract with the
district. These schools are required to meet
the same state standards as traditional
public schools.

Polk County rules on bullying


Introduction
Bullying is the first form of violence
that many experience and it is not fun.
The American Medical Association has
determined that bullying is a public-
health issue with short and long term
consequences for everyone involved. A
study reported by Time magazine (Apri
18, 2005) states that 47 percent of sixth-
graders said they were bullied at least
once in the course of five school days.
Victims of bullying report being
unhappy, often earn lower grades, and
occasionally retaliate.
Warning signs that a student is being
bullied may be subtle, so it is important
for parents to keep a vigilant watch for
any changes in behavior which may
indicate bullying is taking place. If you
suspect that your child is being bullied,
report the incident to school personnel
and talk with educators at your child's
school about bullying.
Overall, everyone is affected by a
classroom climate that allows bullying,
because such a climate is not condu-
cive to learning. Teachers, parents, and
children are encouraged to use bullying
prevention activities, materials and
computer/internet resources to create
a school climate that eliminates bul-
lying. Children learn best in environ-
ments where they feel safe, respected,
and are encouraged to take risks.

Question 1: What is Polk County's
definitions of bullying and harassment?
Answer 1: The Polk County Schools
definition of bullying-
closely follows
the terms of the
Jeffrey Johnston
Stand Up for All
Students Act, and
defines bullying
as:
1. Bullying
means systemati-
cally and chrono-
logically inflicting
physical hurt or
psychological dis- -
tress on one or more
students or em-
ployees. It is further
defined as: unwanted
purposeful written,
verbal, nonverbal,
or physical behavior,
including but not lim-
ited to any threatening, insulting or
dehumanizing gesture, by and adult or
student, that has the potential to create
an intimidating, hostile or offensive
educational environment or cause
long term damage; cause discomfort or
humiliation; or unreasonably interfere
with the individual's school perfor-
mance or participation, is carried out
repeatedly and is often characterized
by an imbalance of power. Bullying
may involve, but is not limited to:
1.unwanted teasing
2. Threatening
3. Intimidating
4. Stalking
5. Cyberstalking
6. Cyberbullying
7. physical Violence
8. Theft
9. Sexual, religious, or racial
discrimination
10. Public Humiliation
11. Destruction of school or personal
property
12. Rumor or spreading of falsehoods
13. Bullying can take many forms;
boys and girls tend to bully differently
and generally their methods target
whatever the bully's group values the
most. Boys are often physical and
threatening; girls will attempt to alien-
ate the victim from their social groups.

Harassment means any threatening,
insulting, or dehumanizing gesture;
use of technology, computer software,


or written, verbal or physical conduct
directed against a student or school
employee that:
Places a student or school employee
in reasonable fear of harm to his or


her person or damage to his or her
property; has the effect of substantially
negatively impacting a student's educa-
tional performance, or employee's work
performance, or either's opportunities,
or benefits;
Has the effect of substantially
negatively impacting a student's or
employee's emotional or mental well-
being; or has the effect of substantially
disrupting the orderly operation of a
school

Question 2: How do I tell the differ-
ence between rough play, fighting and
bullying?
Answer 2: The first step in untangling
the differences between bullying and
other forms of aggression is to define
what bullying is and how it differs from
"normal" childhood conflicts.

Question 3: How do I tell the
difference between bullying and
harassment?
Answer 3: Bullying occurs when a
student or group of students targets an
individual repeatedly over time, using
physical or psychological aggression to
dominate the victim (Hoover & Oliver,


1996; Rigby, 1995; USDOE, 1998). The
repeated incidents function to create
and enforce an imbalance of power
between bully and victim. Harassment
involves any action that can be severe


enough that it keeps a child from being
successful in school. However, unlike
bullying, which involves repeated
incidents, harassment can be a one-
time occurrence.

Question 4: What Causes People to
Bully?
Answer 4: In general, bullies are us-
ing behavior that they have determined
will gain them status and feelings
of control, and they derive satisfac-
tion from inflicting either physical or
emotional pain on others. They usually
seek victims they can successfully bully.
Victims do not "ask for it," but there is
a group of victims who are not socially
successful, and may annoy others,
perhaps in an attempt to gain atten-
tion from their peers. Bullies use this
annoying behavior to justify their own
actions. To many bullies, their victims
were "asking for it."

Question 5: What are the signs and
symptoms of bullying?
Answer 5:
Frightened to walk to school
Schoolwork is going downhill
Has damage clothing, etc.


Becomes withdrawn
Starts fights with peers or friends
Has headaches, stomachaches, or
other stress symptoms
Cries in bed at night
Having nightmares
Possessions or money is missing
Unexplained bruises, cuts, etc.
Anxious when their cell phone rings
or they get a new email

Question 6: How Can I Help My
Child If He/She Is Bullied?
Answer 6:
Affirm the Child "You were right to
tell me about this." "I'm glad you asked
me to help you with this."
Ask Questions "Tell me more
about what happened." "Has this hap-
pened before?" "Did anyone try to help
you?"
Assess the Student's Safety -
Determine what the child needs in
order to feel and be safe now.
Take Action Talk to the teacher,
school counselor, or administrator. You
can also fill out the Bullying Report
Form online or download a copy and
give a completed copy to the school.

Question 7: What are ways for your
child to address bullying in school?
Answer 7: There are several ways
your child can protect his/herself:
Remind them not to fight, this is
dangerous and will only make the
problem worse
Bullies tend to pick on children who
are isolated. See if you can pair your
child with other children who do not
support bullying.
Remind them to avoid places where
supervision is limited
Are there adaptive skills that your
child needs to learn? It might help
them to know:

Question 8: How do I report bullying?
Answer 8: There are several meth-
ods for reporting suspected bullying
incidents:
Contact a school by phone and
report it to school personnel
*You can make a report in person
You can complete the Bullying and/
or Harassment Form

Question 9: What can I expect the
school to do once I report bullying?
Answer 9: Once a bullying incident is
reported, the following actions occur:
Administrators will acknowledge
receipt of your report in three school
days
A preliminary review of the incident
may be conducted to determine need
for the investigation
If warranted, an investigation will
be conducted and completed within 10
days
Parents of the victim and bully will
be notified of the results and the school
will take appropriate action

Question 10: What can the school do
to support my child if he's bullied?
Answer 10: Once school personnel
have determined a bullying incident
has occurred, an official plan will be
developed to support the child who has
been bullied. This plan will be imple-
mented as written, with follow-up and
modification if necessary. Plans will
involve a variety of means of keeping a
child safe and might include:
Increasing supervision
Restructuring schedules
Pairing the Targeted student with
other children who will not support
bullying
Counseling, to learn effective cop-
ing skills
Additional education for targeted
groups of students

Ten ways to drug-proof your child


1. Set a family standard on drug and
alcohol use: Tell your children the rules
early in grade school and repeat them
often. Live by them yourself.
2. Let kids know there are conse-
quences and punishments for violating
all family rules, like no car or TV. Make
them clear and fair and enforce them.
3. Set aside time every day to talk
with your kids about their lives, how
they feel, what they think. Listen and
care.
4. Help your children esta.blil,h realis-
tic personal goak in academic, ,. athlet-
ics and social life. Then encoiraig,- and
help them to achieve their goals.
5. Know your children's friends and
spend time with them.
6. Get excited about the things your
kids care about. Do fun things as a
family.
7. Be aware. Find out the warning
signs of drug abuse, trurm physical
changes to hostility, to loss of interest in
school or hobbies, and watch for them.
8.Talkv.ith your children about the
future. Discuss respi-n ibiliiies N'-IurI'
and theirs.
9. Enjoy your kids. Make your home a
happy, positive place.
10. Be a nosy parent. Ask your
children questions, know where they
are and who they are with. Let your
children know you are asking because
you love them.

Eleven warnings to avoid if you
want to increase the chances of your
child using drugs
1. Be your child's lawyer. Don't let
them accept personal responsibility for
their actions.
2. Be your child's banker. Provide
money for them whenever she/he asks
without earning it.
3. Be your child's insurance company.
No matter what she/he does, he.,he is
covered and protected.
4. Be your child's agent. .-\lha\ repre-
sent her/him.
5. Be your child's mechalnc F L\
everything for them.
6. Be your child's butler Clean her.'
his room; clean up after him her etc.
7. Be your child's fair god mintler.
Wave your wand andmake it happen.
8. Be your child's doormat. Let her,'
him take out her/his frustration on you.
9. Be her/his apologist. Whatever
she/he does, always hae an excuse for
her/him.
10. Be your child's adminnisratiL e
assistant. Do her/his homeiuork or
her/him, etc.
11. Fail to teach your child a lamil\
belief system.

Reasons not to take medications
that are not your own
1. Allergic reactions could occur.
2. Medical history is not taken into
consideration. For example, if a student
is just recovering from chickenpox or
flu, and she/he takes an aspirin, Reyes
Syndrome, a very serious illness, could
occur.
3. A reaction to mixing medicine
could be extremely dangerous. Two
drugs taken together can either affect
how one or the other behave in the
body, or if the both have the same
effect, can have a greater impact than
expected. A cold medicine with antihis-
tamine can dangerously increase the
sedative effects of some pain killers,
tranquilizers, anesthetics, and barbitu-
rates. Other combinations can develop
reactions that poison the blood, raise
your blood pressure, or contribute to
weight gain.

Prevention tips
1. Children need to be able to exer-
cise self-discipline, self-assessment,
and self-control.
Keep child from following the
crowd.


Give kids guided opportunities put
aside something they want to do at the
moment in order to achieve something
of value.
Practice the teaching question -
"What could you do to remind yourself
to get home in time for dinner?"
2. Children need the ability to oper-
ate successfully within a system.
Teach responsibility based on
cause/effect limits and consequences
-- eg los>: driIing pri% ik L.ts if they've
mixed drinking with drl %ing.
3. Children need positive role
models.
*Values are i-.,ught not taught.
Religion is an avenue for this.
4. Childicr, need confidence that they
can affect what happens to them.
Must work within limits they
reco1niiie and understand
5. Children need skills Inr working
effectively with others
Couper,.uitin 1 nmmunicat-
ing, negotiating, sharing Icelings,
empathizing.
6. Children need a si-ri, of "family"
to which they make contributions and
for which they have responsibility.
When they have a "family", less of
need for peer group.
7. Children need ability to make
judgments.
Allow kids to follow through on
their judgments whenever doing so
won't hurt them.
8. Children need to feel they are
loved and valued.
Love does not mean approving all
of their actions.
9. Children need clearly defined
limits.
Limits ghi e kid' a sense of having
dependable :ui rulindings.
Limits form a framework in which
children acquire confidence and re-
sponsibility through their choice, and
consequences uf those choices
lu. ( hildir n ni.ed to develop
sell -etiem.in.
Separate whatt children do from
who the\ are.

parade in Bartow in 2011.


6. Changing groups of friends.
It is important to know that all six
of these things can just be simple
growing pains. These often coincide
with hormonal changes the child goes
through. The key here then becomes
.observing and knowing your child so
that you can determine the difference
between growing pains and when your
child is using drugs.

If a child is using drugs
1. Don't be sarcastic with the kid.
2. Don't be accusatory who gave
your child the drug, why they gave your
child the drug are secondary issues.
Primary issue is that your child is using
something.
3. Don't be seeking sympathy the
kids care le,, what you or others think.
4. Don't be self-blaming.
5. Don i ever try to talk to a child
while e 'she is high on drugs.

Wa. s of dealing with peer pressure
1. Ha .e something else to do.
2. Be prepared for the different kinds
oi pressure.
3. Keep it simple your declination to
use drugs.
4. Avoid situati, ins where you knot\ "
drugs are being u-ed
5 'alk ahout things \ou want it not
about drugs.
6. Hang out with ti iends nho do not
use drugs.,
7. Learr Mw.v to handle teelings-
wiIthout uV ef drugs.
8. It we feel good about uurselIes,
other's teasing will not hurt us-

Teens and parties
Hosting Parties
1. Set the ground rules with sour teen
before the pare.
2. Notify your neighbors that there
vil be a party.
3. Notify the police when planning a
large part.
4. Plan t i ha. e plenty of food and
non-alcoholic di inks on hand.
5. 'lanl at tiiviues with your teen prior
to tht: parmt
6. limit parry attendance and times.
7. Avoid open hous-,e pa tLies.
8. A parent -hNuld be at home during
the parry.
9. Do not allow any guest who leaves
the party to return.

Attending a party
1. Know where your teen will be.
Obtain address and phone number.
2. Be sure your teen knows when


3. Know how your teen will get to and
from the party.
4. Contact the parents of the party
giver to verify the occasion. Be sure
that a parent will be present and
certain that alcohol and drugs will not
be permitted.
5. Be aware or have your teen awaken
you when she/he arrives home.
6. If your teen stays overnight with
a friend after the party, check with the
parents of the friend beforehand.
7. You and your teen may want to
phone the party giver the next day to
express your thanks.

Common parenting pitfalls
1. Inconsistent rules.
Consequences for breaking rules
need to be established ahead.
Let the kids have input into what
should happen if they break rules.
2. Not taking each child's personality
into consideration.
When establishing guidelines for
behavior and consequences, take those
differences into account.
3. Punishment not appropriate to the
offenses.
While the offense needs a punish-
ment. it should be immediate and
shor-tcr-im
Punishment is not the goal, observ-
ing the rules aie.
-1. Allowing children to play off the

School Uniform & dress code information


Polk County Public Schools
Dress code benefits
The Polk County School Board has a
mandatory dress code for all elemen-
tary and middle school students. There
are many positive reasons for a school
dress code, including:
A dress code encourages students to
express their individuality through per-
sonality and academic achievements,
not outward appearances
A dress code puts the focus
on academics, not fashion,
because they project a neat,
serious, businesslike image
Schools with dress codes
have fewer discipline problems
because students aren't distracted
Dress codes can be less
expensive
Dress codes eliminate the vis-

University coach to lead Highlanders hoops team


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @ LAKEWALESNEWS.COM

It was not an interview for the
faint-hearted. The three finalists for the
head basketball coaching position at
Lake Wales High School faced a semi-
circle of 15 people full-bore intent on
finding the best
person for the
job. The three
finalists were
Tyrhon Crawford,
head coach at
Lake Region High
School; Jimmy
Johnson, head
coc Pucoach at Atlantic
High School in
Port Orange and
previous coach,
New head basketball for Lake Wales
coach Randy Lee and Bartow; and
Randy Lee, head
coach at Tennessee Temple University.
In the end, questionnaires tallied and
consensus reached, Tennessee Temple's
Lee fit the bill.
Assistant coach Burney Hayes, popu-
lar with the team and their parents, was
among the final seven, but didn't make
the final cut. In all, 77 people applied.
Candidates were rated on a five-
point scale by a group that included
Highlander basketball players, school
staff, and community members.
The questions cut to the heart of the
school's culture and values. "How
would you be involved in the academic
achievement of your athletes? What
are the rules and methods of discipline
you plan to use to help these athletes
achieve character goals? Do you have
connections with college coaches and
how would you assist your athletes in
qualifying for the NCAA Clearinghouse?


Would you retain some of the coaches
already on staff? How do you plan on
fundraising for your sport?"
Principal Donna Dunson stressed
that each panel member's vote counted
equally, the student votes counting just
as much as hers and the other adults'
ratings.
Bok Academy principal Damien
Moses, who was on the committee, said
he was impressed by Lee's "vast experi-
ence in athletics at all levels, as well
as his commitment to seeing athletes
grow into productive citizens within
the community."
"All great coaches have that vision
for their players," Moses added. The
tone and number of professional and
personal reference letters was impres-
sive as well, Dunson noted.
Lee hit the ground running meeting
with the players and signing on for a 2
p.m. practice. He told the Highlanders
he respected and admired their reputa-
tion and said "I want us to build on
the success you already have." Lee told
them he grew up in Lakeland and was
very familiar with Lake Wales' reputa-
tion in sports. He also said he plans to
work closely with and learn from the
current assistant coaches.
When one of the players asked what
Lee expected from them, his answer
was "leadership." And the leadership
would have to be earned, not auto-
matically conferred because of senior
status, he said. He said the JV and
Varsity teams would not be practic-
ing together, an answer to a player's
question that seemed to bring brief
disappointment to the group.
Blending in right away with the
LWHS tech culture, Lee asked the play-
ers to take out their phones, and gave
them his cell number for their contact
lists. The players were requested to text

Lee told the players he was going to
meet soon with the team parents and
guardians as a group, then would be
visiting players' homes individually.
His three time status as coach of

about academics, and is himself
working toward a PhD in Athletic
Administration, due to graduate North
Central University in 2013.
Asked what besides the team's skill
appealed to him about the job, Lee
cited the administration and staff's
dedication to creating well-rounded
students.
Lee said he will be here all week, will


return to Chattanooga over the week-
end to start the moving process, and
will be back next week. The back and
forth will be for a couple of weeks at
least, he said, since his wife will need to
complete her employment obligations
there as well.
"I'm glad to be coming here in the
summer," Lee added. "This will give
me time to bond with the team before
the season starts."
Lee is taking over the coaching
position left open by the departure of
Billy D. Washington, whose last day
with LWHS is June 8. The team won the
state championship under Washington
last year. The previous year it finished
second in the state.


Stricter dress codes


coming to BHS


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT


Bartow High School students may
learn "what not to wear" when they
resume classes this fall because the
school "fashion police" have adopted
stricter dress code rules and intend to
enforce them, school officials said.
Students who don't meet a revamped
dress code will find themselves calling
home for appropriate clothes, dressing
from a community closet or sitting out
their classes with unexcused absences,
according to BHS Principal Ronald
Pritchard.
Pritchard says the changes "are
necessary to maintain an environment
focused on learning."
Among the changes or rules to be
more strictly enforced are: no more tank
tops or cutoffs, and shorts must reach
the top of the knees. Student shirts
must cover the entire torso, must have
sleeves that cover the shoulders, may
not be sheer or expose cleavage and
may not have any rips, tears or holes.
Suggested shirt styles are polo shirts
with a collar, button-down Oxford shirts
or T-shirts with a crew neck.
Super baggy pants will not be allowed
and must be worn at the waist, the new
directive says.
"Students with sagging pants will be
asked to tuck in their shirts and wear a
belt or suspenders," the code reads.
Girls' skirts also much reach the knee
to be considered appropriate under the
dress code.
No shower shoes or bedroom slippers
are allowed and students must abide
by course guidelines for those that may


require specific shoes or boots.
The faculty and staff will be on the
lookout for extreme or excessive jewelry,
hairstyles and makeup, the principal
says.
"Excessive is defined as unsafe, dis-
tracting or interfering with the learning
environment," Pritchard adds.
Students also may not wear clothing
associated with gangs, tobacco use,
drugs or alcohol or any articles that
may be considered discriminatory, the
code says.
Most students will be prohibited
from wearing headgear, other than
with uniforms, with exceptions granted
based on religious or medical reasons,
the rules say.
The new rules apply to Bartow High
School, International Baccalaureate
and Summerlin Academy and include
students enrolled in any academy when
not wearing the uniforms associated
with that unit, Pritchard says.
All faculty and staff will monitor
student dress and parents are reminded
that repeated violations of the dress
code become a disciplinary infraction
and will be dealt with as disruptive
behavior, the principal adds.
"We understand that these changes
will take some getting used to,"
Pritchard says, "and we want to give
parents and students ample time to
plan wardrobes for the fall." He added
that Wednesdays will continue to be
"dress for success" days.
"We feel these changes will provide a
positive impact on our school environ-
ment and culture," the principal added.
"Parents and students just need to use
good judgment."

Fourth-grader aims to clean up


By ANITA WHITAKER
CORRESPONDENT

Jocelyn Mclntee isn't your ordinary
elementary school student. The
fourth-grader is earning a reputation
for selflessness. In April, having just
recovered from a near fatal case of viral
meningitis encephalitis, Jocelyn wasn't
contemplating her recovery or just how
sick she had been for nearly a month.
Instead, she started to plan what she
could do to prevent the same thing
from happening to her classmates.
The Bethune Academy student's
goal is to raise enough money to
purchase electric hand sanitizers for
each classroom at the school. Once
that's achieved, she said she'd like to
help provide the sanitizers for all Polk
County schools.
"Kids need to be in school. They
don't need to be at home sick," said
Jocelyn. "I told my mom that I wanted
to help make sure that my friends
didn't get sick like I was."
Jocelyn and her mother, Ashlee,
who is a teacher at Bethune Academy,
initially met with the school nurse who
became an immediate advocate of the


Today, Jocelyn Mclntee has something to crow abo
from her battle with viral meningitis encephalitis.


project.
"I admire Jocelyn's battle and how
she keeps kicking back. Right now, her
fight is to educate her peers and adults
on the importance of hand washing
and sanitizing," said Mamie Hall,
Bethune Academy school nurse. "I look
at her and think, 'Wow. She is only 9
years old and look at what she is doing.
She truly is a dreamer and doer.'"


Even Disney thinks so, because in
May 2011, she was recognized and
named a Disney Doer and )reamer
Shining Star (District Elementary
School Level), one of only 15 students
across central Florida. Jocelyn received
that honor after forming a "Go Green
Garden Club" in order to revive a
butterfly garden on the school campus
that had become unattended.

Her illness
After nine scary days in the hospital
with several wrong diagnoses, Jocelyn
finally began treatment for viral menin-
gitis encephalitis.
Meningitis the inflammation of
the meninges, the tissues that cover the
brain and spinal cord, caused by a virus
is contagious and is spread through
either poor hygiene or mosquitoes.
That combined with encephalitis an
acute inflammation of the brain -
made Jocelyn's case more serious.
"The doctors aren't sure how Jocelyn
got sick since she wasn't diagnosed
immediately," Ashlee said.
Even after they knew what they were
dealing with, Jocelyn fell into a coma
for four days, prompting the doctor
to inform her

school year.
"When I was in the hospital, I
watched the doctors sanitize their
hands outside my door before they
came in and when they left," Jocelyn
said. "They kept everything clean that
way, so we can too."
Although the butterfly garden
benefitted the entire student body, as
will proceeds from Jocelyn's Story, her
current project is more personal for
Jocelyn and her family.


"I was just a regular girl. I played
with my dog, swam in the pool, loved
to go outside as much as I could,"
Jocelyn said in the YouTube video. "It
happened to me. There are viruses and
diseases out there. That's why I want to
get money to get hand sanitizers to go
around the school, to keep the kids as,
clean as possible so they don't have to
go through what I went through."

School scores declined, new DOE report states


By MARY CANNADAY
MCANNADAY @LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
As if public schools don't have
enough on their collective plates,
new figures released by the Florida
Department of Education show
that overall school scores in Florida
dropped, and that includes Polk
County.
Two Polk schools, Shelley S. Boone
and Lake Alfred Addair middle schools
received failing grades, under the new
criteria in place this year. There were 47
"F" schools throughout Florida, as op-
posed to 31 last year. The number of "A"
rated elementary, middle and combina-
tion schools dropped from 1,481 to 1,124.
According to Wilma Ferrer, Polk
County's senior director of assessment
and accountability, "There were so
many changes this year that it has to
be considered a totally new system, not
just a modification. So we're consider-
ing this the baseline year and expect
the scores to go up from here."
There are a number of programs in
place and coming down the pike to
help improve the schools' performance
under the new rules, she said. Among
these are the STEM academies. (STEM
is an acronym for science, technology,
engineering and mathematics.)
Schools in Florida are graded on an
A-to-F grading scale. The grades are
used to reward top schools and sanc-
tion those that get failing marks.
The state's system of evaluating
students, schools and teachers has
come under increasingly sharp criti-
cism, with Gov. Rick Scott questioning
whether the state is testing its students
too much.
He defended the latest round of
grades, however, telling the Associated
Press, "Every time we raise the expecta-
tions of our students and teachers,
they ultimately get better in later years.
Simply put, raising the bar works."
This may be of little comfort to
schools with failing grades, however.
The FDOE's intervention program
offers the district options for failing
schools' turnaround:
Reopen as a district-managed school,
replacing teachers and administrators
Close the school, with students re-
assigned to higher-performing schools
Reopen as a charter school
Contract with a private entity to run
the school
Hybrid model, district partners with
private entity
At a district school board meeting
in June, the board grappled with what
direction they would take with failing
schools.
"What they're doing to our schools-
is unconscionable," School Board
Member Frank O'Reilly said about the
state plans. "We'd only have a couple of
weeks to replace the whole staff ... this
method has torn every district apart."
Nickell agreed that "it is quite a
heavy-handed approach."
A district-managed turnaround
school would not only required replac-
ing the entire staff, but adding a new
curriculum focus, and coaches for
reading, math and science.
The board had discussed the idea
of closing a failing school if it were a
small elementary school and divert-
ing the students to another campus.
As it turned out, however, Polk's
two failing schools are both middle
schools.
According to the FDOE, school scores
are based on three criteria: overall
performance on assessment tests,
learning gains of all students and learn-
ing gains of students in each school's
lowest performing 25 percent. The
targeted subjects are reading, math,
writing and science.
At the high school level, the stakes
ramp up, and half the school's
grade is based on the number of
students in accelerated classes, the

percentage of advanced students
eligible to earn college credit, the
number of students who graduate
and the number of at-risk students
graduating. Also, part of the school
grade is based on college readiness,
based on scores in the ACT, SAT, CPT
or PERT college-readiness tests.
Because of the additional criteria,
high schools and combined middle/
high schools are not included in
Wednesday's report. Some of the results
are still pending.
In the area covered by The Lake Wales
News, Your Haines City Herald, The
Fort Meade Leader, The Polk County
Democrat and The Frostproof News, the
only school to receive a higher grade
this year is Davenport School of the Arts.
The school went from a "B" to an "A."
Seven schools maintained last
year's level and 13 schools in this area
dropped a grade level.
Former Education Commissioner
Gerard Robinson earlier this month
warned that the school grades would
drop because of recent changes to
the state's grading system. Robinson
resigned from his job on July 31.
A law adopted by the FDOE in May
prohibits dropping a school more than
one grade level per school year, or it
could have been worse, according to
Nickell's June discussion with the board.
According to the FDOE website,
Florida has raised expectations for
school grades five times in the past 10
years. The results show that after an
initial drop, school grades improved
consistently in the years that followed.
"As Florida moves toward implement-
ing the Common Core State Standards
in 2014-15, the progress seen over
the next few years will smooth the
transition to the more challenging
standards," Gerard said.
(Common Core is a nationwide effort
to standardize testing and curriculum
to avoid the patchwork of state regula-
tions now in effect.)

Graduation rates in Polk County climbing


By CATHY PALMER
CORR-SPONDE.NT

While Polk County high school seniors
are busy with FCATs and upcoming final
exams, school officials are waiting to see
if the county's overall graduation rate
will continue to climb as it has during
the past six years.
A recent study by an independent foun-
dation, the America's Promise Alliance,
charged with developing ways to improve
the nation's high school graduation
rate, found that statewide, Florida had
improved its grad rate from 68.9 percent
to 75.5 percent, but still fell a few points
below the national norm.
Polk County Schools Senior Director


for Assessment, Accountability and
Evaluation Wilma Ferrer says that Polk
graduation rates, in concert with the
overall state rates, have shown a six-year
steady rise, up from 68.8 percent to 74.8
percent in last year's tallies.
"That's not bad," Ferrer said, "We're
not throwing a party, but its not as bad
as some."
- When deciding the graduation rates
for both the state and county, one has
to look at different ways the ratings are
determined.
First is the Florida Regular Cohort
system which takes graduates who have
completed all four years of high school
together. Another, the National Governor's
Association, uses a slightly different criteria


New method to measure


leadership coming to schools


By STEVE STEINER
SSTEINER@POLKCOUNTYDEMOCRAT.COM
What do new leadership standards
mean? The Polk County School Board
(minus members Kay Fields and Debra
Wright,.on excused absences) found
out at the June 12, workshop.
In essence, it focuses on those
termed school leaders; specifically
principals and assistant principals,
said Cheryl Joe, the director for
professional development, who was
accompanied by Bill Strouse, a consul-
tant. Focusing on school leaders, she
explained, means making a positive
impact n both student and faculty
growth. : ,.
Giving board members a brief his-
tory, the new leadership standards as
devised by the Florida School Leaders
Association were adopted Dec. 17,
2001, and the model was unveiled
Jan. 30-31, in a 125-page evaluation
document. Fifty percent of it will be
based on _tuden[ achievement, in ad-
dition to the expectations of a leader.
The remaining 50 percent will come
from data accumulated throughout
Polk County Public Schools. According
to Joe, this will be on-going through-
out the school year.
"We need to know what is being
done right and wrong," said Joe.
Principals and assistant principals
are going to be ranked in one of four
categories: Unsatisfactory, needs
improvement, effective and highly
effective.
One of the situations that will be
addressed is to blend the scope and
responsibilities of the assistant prin-
cipals. As it currently stands, there are
two assistant principals in schools.
One handles administrative matters
while the other focuses on curriculum.


"Neither is better than the other,"
said Joe. "They have to be comprehen-
sive." By blending, she added, those
assistant principals who aspire to
becoming principals will have a more
comprehensive background.
"Many can achieve effectiveness,"
said Strouse. "However, highly effective
is more difficult to demonstrate."
Joe said this will be a new paradigm
that will link student achievement to
leadership development. It will call for
many changes.
"We must know not just data, but
how we use the data toimprove
student achievement," she said.
When Joe and Strouse opened the
issue to discussion, Chairwoman Hazel
Sellers posed a question to School
Superintendent Sherrie Nickell.
"Do we have enough supervisors
to evaluate and support this?" Sellers
asked.
"No, not at this moment," was
Nickell's reply. "We have to figure out
how to make this occur with the exist-
ing resources."
Nickell added that at current, little
organizational support had been forth-
coming from the state, especially in
the realm of insight. However, she said,
conversations have been ongoing.
"I wish we had more time, another
three to four months at least, to do this
well," said Nickell. Unfortunately, that
doesn't exist, she said, which meant
the school system would have to plod
along. "We need mentoring, coaching
and support. That's the key to success
of principals."
Board Member Tim Harris voiced
a frustration that has been uttered
before.
'Again, we don't have the money and
the people," he said.


and then there's the Federal Uniform
Graduation rate which, according to Ferrer,
is an even more stringent measuring tool.
All base their findings on how many
students start high school in the freshman
class and then graduate four years later.
In the Florida ranking system, however, all
students who graduate with either a special
diploma, a regular diploma, a certificate
of completion or a GED are counted. The


NGA doesn't count the students who get
a GED or completion certificate and the
federal system takes an even closer look at
which types of diplomas are issued.
Ferrer says, "Florida is moving up," as
evidenced by a steady increase in the
rates calculated on all three scales. "We
are moving up and have seen a steady

Lawyer: No way to provide


complete security in schools


By CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT
Even though the Polk County School
Board recently got slammed for requir-
ing board meeting attendees to show a
driver's license to attend board meetings,
they haven't eased on their restrictions
to go into any of the county's dozens of
schools.
"We are charged with the integrity
and security of all our school campus-
es," says School Board General Counsel
Wes Bridges. "And we do what we have
to to protect our children."
And what they do is ask that visitors
report to the office where they: ask you
for your driver's license, scan your license
through a sex-offender database and, if
you pass the scan, you are issued a stick-
on name tag with your driver's license
photo, or a photo taken at the school,
on it designating you as a visitor. You are
expected to wear it while on the campus.
Bridges says this scan allows school
officials to "quickly check that there
isn't a sex offender or someone with a


history of violence against children on
or near our campus."
He adds however that "our schools are
not compounds," and "we rely heavily
on our school officials to be alert to peo-
ple who are not supposed to be there."
The lawyer also said that once visitors
become known to administrators, the
formality is "sometimes waived."
Also available on most middle and high
school campuses, according to Bridges,
are school resource officers provided by
police departments or the sheriff's office.
"We do the best we can do," he says, but
adds "there is no practical way to provide
100 percent security in our schools,
particularly those with open campuses.
"In those schools, we rely on our
staff and students to direct visitors to
the office for admittance," he explains.
"We also have signs posted all over the
campus asking visitors to sign in at the
office."
Bridges also said school administra-
tors were frequently reminded to "stay
vigilant and monitor those who come
and go on our school grounds."


Dream Big

Our schools seek to inspire, teach,
change, create, explore, prepare and
challenge students. The campuses are
bright, clean, friendly, interesting and fun
learning environments.
Our six schools have individual personalities
and differences, but they all strive to help our
students achieve their potential as they move
through the K-12 system.

IB program gets its wings


By MARY CANNADAY
MCAN NA DAY IA KE\WA LES NEVWS.COM

The fledgling International
Baccalaureate program at Lake Wales
High School is official.
Charter School Superintendent
Jesse Jackson said the administration
was informed the local program had
been approved for "full-blown status"
as an IB school. It is the third IB
program in Polk County, with Bartow
and Haines City being the first and
second.
The accrediting committee that vis-
ited LWHS earlier this year has given
the stamp of approval to what was
previously approved for IB prep only,
comprising ninth- and 10th-grade
students. The actual IB program starts
with 11th-graders, according to LWHS
principal Donna Dunson.
"I'm just very excited that we're able
to offer this piece in our academic
program," Dunson said. "Our stu-
dents have sailed over every bar that
we have raised here, and I know they
will excel in this also," she added.
The IB program is worldwide, as
the name would indicate. Based in
Geneva, Switzerland, the non-profit
program emphasizes challenging
curriculum, multi-cultural awareness,
creativity, and critical thinking skills.
Dunson and Jackson both empha-
sized that the LWHS program will not
be as restrictive as some, however,
as far as admissions. Rather than
administering an admissions test, the
school will rely on teacher recom-
mendations and FCAT reading scores.
"If a student has a passion to be in
the program, we will help them all we
can to succeed," Dunson said. "We
are going to have a summer program
to help students with their reading
skills," she noted, "and our program
will even take qualified 11th-graders
who may not have been through the
through the pre-I.B. program."
Dunson said information will go
up on both the LWHS and the Charter
Schools websites, and on April 26, there
will be an open house at the school, at
6:30 p.m. for students and their families
interested in the program. "We will be
opening up IB slots for ninth, tenth and
eleventh graders, Even if your kids are
still in elementary school, feel welcome
to come and find out about the pro-
gram," Dunson said. Applications will be
available at the open house.
According to a spokesperson for the
LWCS, more than 900,000 students are
enrolled in IB programs in more than 140
countries.
"We are grateful to our students and
parents for believing in us, and support-
ing us during the year-long authorization
process," said Anuj Saran, the school's IB
Director. "Our students are committed to
be the architects of their lives and LWHS

upward climb. We're just inching our way
up. But it's a slow process.
"We're glad to see any increases, but
we know it's not the best rate," Ferrer
said. "We want more increases and we're
steadily working toward that. But it's dif-
ficult when every year new requirements
are added."
This summer, when the 2012 class is
counted, there may be a slight decline, ac-
cording to Ferrer, because of changes to the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
"This year there's the added algebra
component in the FCAT which could be
an issue for some kids," she said. "And
if they don't pass the FCAT, they don't
graduate."
Another component of the graduation
rate equation is attendance, Ferrer says.

Tenth graders enrolled in the Baccalaureate
Prep program at Lake Wales High give a big
thumbs up to news that they will have an
official IB program for grades 11-12, starting
in 2012-13. The students were out of uniform

is now positioned to help them build a
solid foundation," he added.
Saran said there are currently 100 stu-
dents in the Baccalaureate Prep program:
65 freshmen and 35 sophomores.
Betty Wojcik, a charter board member
and Lake Wales City Commissioner as
well as executive director of the Lake
Wales Chamber of Commerce, said that
the IB program will be a big draw for
companies and families who look at the
educational opportunities when consid-
ering relocation.
"I think that this is a giant step toward
promoting economic development in
Lake Wales," she said.

"You can't teach kids if they aren't there.
We're just about standing on our heads to
keep kids in the classroom. You just can't
teach an empty chair."
The rates for this year won't be in until
June, Ferrer says. "We wish we could get
them earlier, but with the new criteria,
we'll be glad to get them in June."
Then, she adds, "we can try to find ways
to continue increasing the number of Polk
County seniors who graduate."

CATHY PALMER
CORRESPONDENT


When Polk County students return to
class on Aug. 20, most of them will run
into a police officer or sheriff's deputy.
They are there to keep kids safe and
teach them not to be afraid of the po-
lice, says Polk County Sheriff's Deputy
Sgt. Vernon Noad, who oversees most
of the PCSO's school resource officers.
More than 40 law enforcement offi-
cers from both the sheriff's department
and local police forces head to school
each day under the Polk County Safe
Schools program, says Safe Schools
Director Greg Bondurant.
Bondurant works with the law
enforcement community to fund
75 percent of the officers' salaries
and benefits to the tune of some $2.1
million each year, he says, with the
remaining 25 percent picked up by the
officers' individual departments.
So what do these school cops do?
"It's just like policing a small com-
munity," explains Noad. "And we deal
with almost all the same problems, like
drugs, guns, knives, fights and even sex
crimes."

But fighting crime within the school
boundaries isn't all the school officers
do, Noad explains. He says his deputies
"do a lot of mentoring and teaching,
too."
"We spend a lot of time just trying to
get kids not to be afraid of the cops and
being there to listen," he says. He adds
that his officers teach classes about
drugs, bullying, violence in the schools
and what they can do to combat them
all.
"We also want kids to know we are
there to help them, really help them,"
the veteran deputy adds.
The officers are also responsible for
the sheriff's or police departments'
Explorer programs.
"We spend time teaching them about
law enforcement and how it serves the
community," he explains. "We get them
ready for our Explorer Academy and
ready to go on a ride-along."
Bondurant explains that Polk County
schools have had resource officers


places where we have elementary and
secondary schools close to each other,
they may share a resource officer, but
I'd love to have one assigned to each
school in the district," he said.
Both Noad and Bondurant said
Polk schools haven't had any major
incidents, but have had several that
involved students assaulted and
injured. Bondurant cited an instance in
Winter Haven several years ago where

hastily adds.


"Our schools are safer because our ,
resource officers are there. We are so
glad to have them. I just wish we had
more."
When school is out, most of the
officers either return to active patrol or
spend their summer months in train-
ing, Noad said.
"They are always busy, mostly
preparing for the next school year."


Partnerships is to ensure that grantee
and delegate agencies collaborate with
partners in their communities, in order
to provide the highest level of services
to children and families, to foster the
development of a continuum of family
centered services, and to advocate for
a community that shares responsibility
for the healthy development of children
and families of all cultures.
