WSC receives



generous gift


Warner Southern College has
received a $1 million dollar gift
from an anonymous donor, col-
lege officials announced. Presi-
dent Greg Hall said, "We are
enormously grateful to the indi-
vidual who gave this very gener-
ous gift, which will fund the initial
phase of our building campaign
for new student housing."
Vice President for Advance-
ment, Doris Gukich, said, "Pro-
viding additional housing for stu-
dents is one of our priorities.
Warner Southern has outgrown
the capacity of current student
housing. It did not help that our
campus was hit by three hurri-
canes, which severely damaged
some-of the student housing.
While most of the housing has
been repaired, some units were
totally destroyed."
Plans are set to construct
cluster housing units arranged in
townhouse style on the college's
west campus. Current housing
accommodates 225 on-campus


students.
Warner Southern College is
located five miles south of Lake
Wales, Florida. Its 380-acre cam-
pus is found on both sides of High-
way 27. The east campus is the
location for the Raines Administra-
tive Building, the Fulton Fine Arts
Building and Williams Hall where
academic departments and stu-
dent housing are located. The west
campus facilities include the Rigel
Student Center, the Pontious
Learning Resource Center, Cleary
Center, Turner Athletic Center,
Spencer Hall and athletic fields.
Anyone interested in finding
out more about the campaign
plan to build new student resi-
dence halls forWamer Southern's
students can call the Advance-
ment Office at (863) 676-7261.
Warner Southern College is
'accredited by the Commission
on Colleges of the Southern
Association of Colleges and
Schools to award the Associate,
Bachelor, and Master Degrees.


Breen inducted



to Hall of Fame


By Gary M. Wiesing
Lake Wales native, George
Breen, was inducted into the
NHRAs Drag Racing Hall of Fame
on Saturday, January 15, 2005.
The ceremony took place at the
Jacksonville Marriott Hotel as part
of NHRA's southeast division
awards banquet. George was
honored for his pioneering contri-
butions to the sport of drag racing.
George was introduced by
drag racing legend Big Daddy
Don 6arlits. Don told George's
many contributions to the early
days of drag racing. George was
instrumental in bringing organ-
ized drag racing to Lake Wales in
the early 1950's. He is credited
with the first sponsored car in
Florida, the first use of fuel injec-
tion on a drag car, and the first
use of a handbrake. He was also
a formidable competitor known
from Miami to Lake City. He
accomplished all this on a very
limited budget and a sincere love
of the sport.
A replica of George's most


famous car, JR-IV, is on display at
Don Garlit's Museum of Drag
Racing in Ocala. It was taken to
Jacksonville and put on display in
the lobby of the Marriott for the
evening ceremony. He terrorized
opponents with that car during
the mind-1950's. The car once
ran 128 mph in the quarter mile
using a flathead Ford engine.
In 1957 George ran 135 mph in
an updated racecar, JR-V in Fort
Lauderdale. It was recognized as
the fastest speed ever recorded for
a flathead powered car in Florida
and may still stand today.
George retired from racing in
the early 1960's o manage his cit-
rus groves, run his machine
shop, and raise a family with his
wife Joelyn. Today he builds a
flies radio-controlled model air-
planes with his son, Mike. He is
also restoring a 1946 Ford as a
1950's hotrod. Polk County can
claim a member of drag racing's
hall of fame, George Breen, a
pioneer in America's fastest
motorsport.

The Lady Bulldogs soccer
team had another taste of vic-
tory in Avon Park at last Friday

powerful.
Eighth grader Faith Franklin

cessful pass from Yuridia
Aguilar in the first minute of

Alvardo kicked the winning
goal with less than five minutes
left on the clock. Meghan Wag-
ner the keeper for Frostproof


has been doing an exceptional
job protecting the goal. The
Lady Bulldogs have pulled
together all season long and
are a team to be proud of. This
was the first district champi-
onship in the eleven years that
the female soccer program has
been in competition at Frost-
proof.
The Lady Bulldogs will take
the field again at home on
Thursday, February 3, at 7 PM

culent .barbecue, delectable
swamp cabbage and the many
other culinary pleasures that await
those who attend the Frostproof
Rotary Wild Game Dinner!


Children explore their


senses in HBS program


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services is assisting the
federal government with educating
hurricane victims about their rights
and responsibilities as tenants. The
Department has provided the Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) with 30,000 Land-
lord/Tenant Law brochures to be
distributed to Florida residents in
affected areas. FEMA provides dis-
aster assistance to people who


were victimized by the hurricanes
and wants to educate disaster
applicants about their rights as ten-
ants.
The agency will distribute the
brochures at Disaster Recovery
mobile units deployed throughout
the state. It's important that Florida
residents who may have been
forced to vacate damaged rental
units for any amount of time find
out What their rights are about pay-
ing rent during the time they were


not occupying a structure. The law
also covers the conditions under
which a tenant can terminate a
lease. In addition, thousands of res-
idents were displaced when their
homes were damaged or
destroyed during one of the four
hurricanes that struck the state.
Many are still unable to return to
their homes and are renting houses
or apartments until their homes
can be repaired or rebuilt. Home-
owners may not be aware that


state law provides them with cer-
tain rights as tenants and provides
landlords with some rights as well.
Landlords and tenants need to find
out what their responsibilities are
so these temporary placements
don't become a hardship. "The key
to avoiding problems is to know
what the law does to protect you as
a tenant, and what it doesn't do,"
said Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson.

Sports


Baseball:

WIU opens
season with a win
The Warriors baseball team
(1-0) opened up regular season
play with a 6-2 victory over Short-
er College from Tennessee (0-2).
The game remained scoreless
until the third inning where both
teams scored a run a piece.
The Warriors rallied to a 4-1
lead in the fifth inning following
Jeremy Byrd reaching base on an
error; Grover Benton hitting a
double; Travis Hill reaching on an
error (scoring Chris Dupree who
pinch ran for Byrd and Benton);
Scott Scherer walking; and BJ
Ubrey singling to score Hill and
pretty much put Shorter College
away.
The Warriors then tallied up
another run both in the bottom of
the sixth and the eighth with
Shorter trying to rally late in the
top of the ninth by scoring one
more run and leaving two men
on base.
Going the distance for the
Warriors on the mound was
Kellen Marshall with five strike-
outs in nine innings.
Leading the offense was Ben-
ton, who gained hits on 4 of 5
times at bat; he also added two
RBI's/ Hill, Ubrey, and Byrd each
gained two hits on four times at
bat. Hill drove in two runs and
Ubrey one.

WIU edged by SC
The scoreboard displayed a 6-
6 tie-game after eight innings, but
Shorter (1-3) rallied to add one
more in the top of the ninth and
then hold the Warriors (1-1)
scoreless in the bottom of the
ninth to steal the win 7-6.
The Warriors started the game
just as they had left off, by scoring
twice in the first inning. Shorter
rallied back and managed to
score six runs off six hits and an
error in the third inning to take a
6-2 lead. WIU retaliated by string-
ing together three more runs in
the bottom of the inning, includ-
ing a two-run homer by BJ Ubrey,


to pull back within one. The War-
riors then tied the score at six in
the bottom of the 4th following a
single by Jeremy Byrd, a single by
Kenny Cruz Riviera, a fielder's
choice by Grover Benton, and a
singly by Scott Scherer to knock
in Cruz Riviera.
After allowing a run in the top
of the ninth, WIU couldn't .get
anything going with three up and
three down.
Gaining two hits each for the
Warriors were: Cruz-Riviera,
Scherer, and Byrd. Pitching for
the Warriors were: Todd Wain-
scott, Derek Rodgers, Matt Boyer,
and Michael Irvin. Wainscott
open with 2 1/3 innings, Rodgers
followed with 2/3 of an inning,
Boyer tossed the next 5 innings,
and Irvin threw in the ninth.
Boyer and Wainscott each con-
tributed three strikeouts.
WIU will host University of
Auburn-Montgomery on Satur-
day at noon for doubleheader
action. The game will be held at
the Heart of Florida Regional
Medical Center Field on the WIU
campus.

Warriors sweep #18
Auburn-Montgomery
The WIU Warriors rebounded
from their heartbreaking loss on
Friday night to sweep NAIA #18
University of Auburn-Mont-
gomery 7-6,3-2.
The first game was tied at six
from the top of the sixth inning
through the top of the 10th with
the Warriors coming up to bat.
Ryan Kendrick led the 10th inning
rally with a single, which was fol-
lowed by Jeremy Byrd hitting a
single. UAM then chose to inten-
tionally walk Grover Benton to
load the bases with just one out.
UAM tallied up another strikeout
from there, but then Kendrick
scored by stealing home on a
wild pitch to end the game.
The second game remained
scoreless for the first three
innings. Auburn then stored
twice in the top of the fourth and
Webber notched run number
one in the bottom of the fifth,
adding the tying run and the go-
ahead run in the bottom of the


sixth to end the scoring on the
seven-inning contest.
On the day, winning pitchers
for the Warriors were Darren
Hardy and Zach Cordier. From the
plate, Scott Scherer added four
hits, BJ Ubrey added three, and
Benton connected for two more.
The Warriors are now 3-1 on
the season and will return to
action on Tuesday at St. Leo Uni-
versity for 7pm action. WIU will
then travel to Mobile, Alabama for
a tournament against some ofthe
top teams in the NAIA next week-
end. The next home game will be

erd College at 6:30 p.m.

ond half to climb back into the

Library hosts African American History programs


The Lake Wales Public Library,
Lake Wales Library Association,
(Friends of the Library) and the
Florida Humanities Council invite
you to celebrate African American
History Month with two outstand-
ing programs.
The Lake Wales Public Library
and the Lake Wales Library Asso-
ciation was awarded a Partner-
ship Grant by the Florida Humani-
ties Council to present
outstanding public humanities
programming for the community.
The grant will be utilized to pro-
vide extraordinary community
events in February.
On Tuesday, February 15, 7 PM
the Lake Wales Library Associa-
tion and Florida Humanities
Council will join forces with the
Lake Wales Arts Center to present
University of Central Florida pro-
.fessor and Folk Art expert Dr.
Kristin Congdon. Kristin G. Cong-
don has taught art in a variety of
settings, including public schools,
correctional settings, treatment
facilities, museums, and universi-
ties. She has a Ph.D. in art educa-
tion from the University of Oregon
and has published extensively on
the study of folk arts, feminist criti-
cism, and community arts.
Dr. Congdon will .bring her
extensive knowledge of art histo-
ry and folk art to her Lake Wales
presentation, "The Folkloric


Roots of Clementine Hunter and
Other African American Folk
Artists." The Lake Wales Arts Cen-
ter will provide the perfect back-
drop with an exhibition of work
by a woman who's been called
the first African American folk
artist, Clementine Hunter. African
American folk artists like Clemen-
tine Hunter have created wonder-
ful works of art that are some-
times highly valued for their
aesthetic appeal. While their art
can entice us with whimsy, color,
and delightful subject matter, it
also has the potential to teach us
about a way of life, a system of
beliefs, and ancestral continuity.
In this talk Dr. Congdon will intro-
duce a number of important
African American folk artists -as
she explores how their work con-
nects them to their heritage. Dr.
Kristin Congdon's talk will be held
at the Lake Wales Arts Center with
the works of former plantation
worker Clementine Hunter as
backdrop
Kristin Congdon recently pub-
lished /Uncle Monday and Other
Florida Tales/ (University Press of
Mississippi, 2001), illustrated by
Kitty Petterson. This book won
the Carolyn Washbon Award for
best popular book in Florida his-
tory and the Dorothy Howard
Prize from the Folklore and Edu-
cation Section of the American


Folklore Society. She is the 1988
and 1999 recipient of the Manual
Barkan Memorial Award for
scholarship from the National Art
Education Association and the
1998 Ziegfeld Award from the
United States Society for Educa-
tion Through Art for international
work in the arts.
Dr. Congdon is a recent Presi-
dent of the Florida Folklore Soci-
ety and member of the Florida
Folklife Council. She is a Professor
of Film and Philosophy, teaching
half time in each department, and
Director of the Cultural Heritage
Alliance.
The library's celebration of
African American History Month
continues on Friday, February 18,
7 PM in the Lake Wales Senior
High School-auditorium with a
rousing performance by the Flori-
da A & M University Gospel Choir.
From its beginnings in 1957 the
FAMU Community Choir was the
dream of oneman, Prince Jona D.
Olds, the founder of this amazing
group of musicians. Early on the
FAMU Community Choir per-
formed on a popular Sunday
morning program on Tallahassee
television, WTCV, Channel 6.
Under the direction of Helena
Barrington the choir stirred souls
throughout the viewing audience
in the Florida Panhandle and
South Georgia. Later the choir


held center stage on the national-
ly televised "Lamp Unto My Feet"
and the "Mel Tillis Show." It was
in the late 1970's that the choir
became known as the Florida A &
M University Gospel Choir. For
more than four decades the Flori-
da A & M University Gospel Choir
has stirred listeners throughout
the south and beyond. The FAMU
Gospel Choir is now under the
direction of Aaron Snipes III. He
directs the choir in traditional and
original contemporary gospel
music. In observance of African
American History Month the choir
will incorporate Spirituals as a his-
torical tribute to the music that
lead the way for gospel music and
is culturally identified with African
American history.
This outstanding program is
sponsored by a grant from the
Florida Humanities Council
encouraging the exploration of
culture in the field.of humanities.
Sponsors for these two unique
events include the Lake Wales
Library Association, Lake Wales
Arts Center, Lake Wales Unity in
Community, Lake Wales Rotary
Club, the Lake Wales Care Center
and Kathy Manry Clark. All pro-
grams sponsored by the Florida
Humanities Council and the Lake
Wales Library Association are free

mation call 863-678-4004.

Florida's workforce partners encourage use of tax credit


Florida's Agency for Work-
force Innovation and Workforce
Florida, Inc. urges Florida workers
to take advantage of the
als/article/0,,id=96456,00.html>
Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC),
a refundable federal income tax
credit for low to moderate
income working individuals and
families. The tax credit is a valu-
able source of support for-people
who work, but don't earn high
incomes. Taxpayers who qualify
and claim the credit can pay less
federal tax, pay no tax or even get
a tax refund of up to $4,300.
"The Earned Income Tax Cred-
it is a tremendous asset to qiali-
fled Florida workers and we urge
them to take advantage, of it," said
Susan Pareigis, Director of the
Agency for Workforce Innovation.
"There are far-teaching benefits


not only for the worker's family,
but for their community as well,
because these refunds are used
for family essentials and the
money is spent locally."
In tax year 2003, a total of 1.5
million Florida taxpayers filed for
EITC refunds in the total amount
of $2.7 billion. In-a recent study of
the economic impacts of the EITC
refund, the Brookings Institute
found that the spatial distribution
of EITC filers in Florida was fairly
evenly dispersed with 21.6% from
large cities, 17.4% from large sub-
urbs, 16% from small metros, and
22.1% from rural areas. This dis-
tribution shows that supporters of
large metros and rural areas have
a common interest in promoting
the EITC as a critical economic
tool for their low to moderate
income working families.
"This is a program that literally


makes work pay," said Curtis
Austin, President of Workforce
Florida. "The Earned Income Tax
Credit provides a substantial
incentive for low to moderate
income families to participate in
the workforce. At the same time
it imparts to these families the dig-
nity of work and self-sufficiency."
Congress originally approved
the tax credit legislation in 1975.
The maximum benefit at that time
was $400 per year and has grown
to $4,300 for tax year 2004. Income
and family size determine the
amount of the EITC. When the
EITC exceeds the amount of taxes
owed, it results in a tax refund to
those who claim and qualify for the
credit. To qualify, taxpayers must
meet certain requirements and file
a tax return. For more information
on claim requirements for the
EITC, visit www.irs.gov/eitc


or call
1-800-TAX-1040.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation is the state's lead work-
force agency and directly adminis-
ters the state's Labor Market Statis-
tics program, Unemployment
Compensation, Early Learning and
various workforce development
programs. The agency served as
the administrative and fiscal entity
for Florida's school readiness sys-
tem since 2000.
Workforce development poli-
cy and guidance in Florida is pro-
vided by Workforce Florida, Inc.
Workforce Florida and the
Agency for Workforce Innovation
are partners in the Employ Florida
network which includes 24
Regional Workforce Boards who
deliver services through nearly
100 One-Stop Career Centers
around the state.


2004 Earned Income Tax Cred-
it requirements
To claim the EITC, taxpayers
must meet the following rules:
S* Must have earned income
Must have a valid Social
Security number
Investment income is limit-
ed to $2,650
Filing status can't be "mar-
ried filing separately"
Generally must be a U.S. cit-
izen or resident alien all year
Cannot be a qualifying child
of another person
Cannot file Form 2555 or
2555-EZ (related to foreign
earned income)
You need to have worked and
have earned income less than:
$11,490 ($12,490 if married
filing jointly) if there is no qualify-
ing child
$30,338 ($31,338 if married


filing jointly) if there is one quali-
fying child
$34,458 ($35,458 if married
filing jointly) if there is more than
one qualifying child
Qualifying child criteria
The child must meet the rela-
tionship, age and residency tests.
Common errors to avoid
Taxpayers claim a child who
is not a qualifying child
Married taxpayers who
should file as married filing sepa-
rately instead file as single or head
of household
Income-reporting errors
Taxpayers or qualifying chil-
dren with incorrect Social Securi-
ty numbers

Underwater earthquake impacts Florida aquifers


South Florida Water Manage-
ment District scientists discover
spikes in deep monitoring well
water levels 60 minutes after
earthquake.
The massive, Dec. 26 under-
water earthquake off the coast
of northern Sumatra impacted
the earth's underground water
levels approximately 8,000 miles
away in Florida, according to
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District hydrogeologists.
Water levels in the District's
deep Floridan aquifer monitor-
ing wells in Collier and Okee-
chobee counties and other wells
throughout the agency's 16-


I


county region, saw sudden
spikes up to 4 inches approxi-
mately 60 minutes after the
earthquake, which measured
9.0 on the Richter Magnitude
Scale.
"Normally, water level
changes in the Floridan aquifer
happen slowly," said John Mul-
liken, the agency's director of
Planning and Resource Evalua-
tion, who oversees a team of
water supply planners, environ-
mental scientists and hydrogeol-
ogists. "The spikes were sudden
and very unusual.
The speed at which the shock
wave moved was absolutely


awesome."
The spikes were not uniform
from well to well. U.S. Geologi-
cal Survey (USGS) scientists esti-
mate that seismic waves from
the earthquake traveled across
the globe at approximately
7,400 miles per hour, causing
small water-filled crevices in the
Floridan aquifer to expand and
contract. This action forced
water in and out of the wells.
The hydrologists also con-
cluded that no damage to the
Floridan aquifer or water supply
resulted from this event.
The wells, ranging in depth
from 1,350 feet to 1,900 feet, are


used by South Florida Water
Management hydrogeologists to
monitor and learn more about
the Floridan aquifer system, an
underground layer of porous
limestone that covers most of
Florida. The system is used as
the primary water supply source
for millions of people, business-
es and farms throughout much
of the state. It is a secondary sol-
lource of water in the area south
of Lake Okeechobee.
Scientists for state and feder-
al agencies have reported simi-
lar readings in deep wells in
other states resulting from the
earthquake.
