Disabled teen
becomes Eagle Scout
LAKELAND( AP) A.J.
Trueblood leaned over a piano
at First United Methodist
Church and played the first few
notes of "The Star-Spangled
Banner." A group of khaki-clad
Boy Scouts marched an Ameri-
can flag through the auditori-
um.
"He forgot his music book at
home," his father, Bart True-
blood, said. But "he'll make it "
A.J. Trueblood is used to
making it despite the obstacles.
Growing up with Down syn-
drome, he might have been
expected to deviate from the
rules, skip the hard part, ot sim-
ply pass go because of his phys-
ical and mental disabilities. But
he usually spurns short cuts.
That's why the 18-year-old Boy
Scout stuck to the rulebook
when he set out to earn Eagle
status, scouting's highest rank.
He wanted to earn it just like
everyone else.
Serenading his own cere-
mony, the McKeel Academy
senior took the Eagle Scout
oath at a ceremony at First
Methodist Church in Lakeland.

Pioneer photographers


kept the memories alive


By MaryAnn Morris
We owe the word "photog-
raphy" to Sir John Herschel,
who first used the term in 1839,
the year the photographic
process became public and six
years before Florida became a
state. The word comes from the
Greek words for light and writ-
ing.
Paul Daguerre, a French-
man, announced the first pho-
tographic process in 1839 and
he named it the Daguerreotype.
George Eastman, an American
is remembered for introducing
flexible film in 1884. Four years


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history




later he introduced the box
camera, and photography now
reached a much greater num-
ber of people.
By the time the Lake Okee-


chobee area started to become
settled in the early 1900s, pho-
tography had become well-
established means of record-
ing events.. The early
photographers who braved
heat, flooded lands and mos-
quitoes to take pictures of the
wonder that was Florida left a
rich and remarkable record of
early life in the Everglades, and
on the lake and the prairies.
John Kunkel Small first
came to Florida in 1901 to col-
lect and photograph Florida's
unique plant life for the New

The plight of migrant farm workers has been documented by
many, including Marion Post Wolcott. Housing for migrant work-
ers and their children in Belle Glade was typical at that time.

York Botanical Garden. He was a
botanist and curator first of
Columbia University's herbarium,
then of the New York Botanical
Garden, a position he held until
his death in 1938. We have not
only his wonderful photographs
of the plants and landscapes that
existed before development but


also his written accounts of his
journeys in the state including two
in the Lake Okeechobee area.
Claude C. Matlack came from
Kentucky to Miami in 1917 where
he worked as a commercial pho-
tographer until 1942, photograph-
ing everything from socialites to
Seminoles. Particularly in the
'roaring twenties", he pho-
tographed everything from "flap-
pers" to tin-can.tourists and many
Everglades scenes.


Marion Post Wolcott was a
photographer for the United
States Farm Security Administra-
tion. She took thousands of photo-
graphs of rural scenes across the
country from the late 1930s into
the 1940s. Her photographs of the
Lake Okeechobee area record
some of the scenes of the time.
Today her work is collected and
displayed nationally.
These are not the only pholog:,
raphers of Central Florida. There


are many more. But the best pho-
tographs are so often those taken
by families to remember the lives
of the family members who came
before. We are grateful when they
sometimes share them with our
readers.

Guest Commentary


Don't hesitate to share your thoughts with legislators


By Lee Hamilton
Sometimes, you just have to get
in touch with your member of Con-
gress. Perhaps Congress is taking
up an issue the minimum wage,
say, or a bill to promote medical
research that would make a dif-
ference in your life. Maybe some
matter is embroiling your commu-
nity, such as growing drug prob-
lems at the high school or a pro-
posed urban renewal project that
will destroy a neighborhood.
Or, you might just want to sug-
gest that Congress start acting like
the independent branch it's sup-
posed, to be, rather than a rubber
stamp for the White House.
Whatever the case, you can
always write a letter or send an e-.
mail- the more personalized, the
better. This is the most common
form of communication with Con-
gress. But there are times when a
letter doesn't seem enough. So how
do you go about getting your Con-
gress member's attention? Isn't that
something only wealthy donors and
Washington lobbyists can manage?
Hardly. Remember, Congress is
there to represent you. For our sys-
tem to work, you need to be willing
to share your thoughts with mem-
bers of Congress, and they need to
be willing to listen.
In some ways, the easiest step is
actually getting in touch. If you call,


for instance, it's unlikely you'll get
your member of Congress right
away, but you can certainly pass on
a message most members set
aside time each week to call back
constituents.
Members also make time on
their schedules to meet with con-
stituents, so if you're going to be in
Washington, D.C., set up an
appointment in advance. It's even
more likely that you'll be able to
schedule a meeting back home, in
the district office or even at a local
coffee shop, where the distractions
of the Capitol are far away.
There are other avenues, too,
besides one-on-one conversations.
Members regularly hold public
meetings in the district, and their
times and places are usually listed
on the member's website. Just
show up, and don't hesitate to say
what's on your mind.
Members also hold "virtual
forums" which are online discus-
sions in which they and their con-
stituents can share their views. You
might also take the bull by the
horns and invite your member of
Congress to speak to a local group
to which you belong it's a good
way to get a conversation going,
and you may feel more comfortable
having friends and acquaintances
alongside you.
Finally, it is always worth getting

to know a member's staff, either in
Washington or in the district. These
men and women often have expert-
ise that can resolve your specific
problem. If only speaking to your
elected official will do, they can
help smooth the way.
Once you're on the phone or
face-to-face with your lawmaker or
a staff member, there are certain
things you can do that will help you
be more credible. Do enough
research beforehand to be knowl-
edgeable about the issue, and defi-
nitely do not overstate your case or
try to mislead. If you can make your
case with facts and figures instead
of spin, and know the arguments
on the other side, you will be far
more convincing.
Since you have limited time, be
sure to stick to the most important
points in your position. Do what
you can to be as personal as possi-
ble: explain how a given issue will
affect you or your family, and if you
can, appeal to your member's own
experience or background to make
a point.
Finally, mention who else in
your community a church
group, labor union, neighborhood
association shares your views,
especially if they're from a different
background or hold different ideo-
logical beliefs from you.
Perhaps the most important


advice I can give, though and I
speak from experience is that
how you say it is as important as
what you say. It helps to be con-
structive, to find a way not only to
raise a problem but then help your
legislator find a way to solve it. It's
important to listen as well as to
speak in order to learn more about
your lawmaker's position and gain
some insight into how this issue
might be playing in Congress.
Be patient, since some issues
demand time for deliberation and
consultation before your legislator
can give a commitment, and be
unfailingly courteous knowing
how to disagree without being dis-
agreeable is the surest way I know
to earn an elected official's respect.
Above all, be open to compro-
mise. Making some progress
toward your goal is better than
none at all.
And finally, relax! Say what you
want to say, and enjoy your
exchanges with your representative.
We live in a democracy, and my
experience has been that participat-
ing in it is both a privilege and a
pleasure. I hope that's what you
discover, too.

director of the Center on Congress at

By Daniel Shube
As the dog days of summer drag
on, I've been thinking that it is high
time to head for the hills. While
we've been fortunate in avoiding
storms, the heat has been oppres-
sive. Are you poised to high tail it
out of here for the- mountains? If
you are as ready as I am, then you
might see me in the Blue Ridge
Mountains of North Carolina.
Here's a great deal that I would like
to share with you.
The historic High Hampton Inn
of Cashiers will be hosting their
20th Annual Fall Senior Golf Clas-
sic. This event is a 5-day tourna-
ment with a different golf event
each day. Participants include men
and women, three age divisions for
each, plus team events with mixed
foursomes.
The event is open to Seniors
Ages 50-64, Super Senior I Ages
65-74 and Super Senior II Ages 75
or more. A spouse under age 50 is
invited to play and can participate
in prizes for team events but not in
prizes for individual play. Non-golf-
ing spouses always enjoy the fel-
lowship and amenities of the
resort.
The Fall Senior Golf Classic
takes place Sunday, September 17
until Friday, September 22.
When I heard about this event,
my first thought was how cool the
mountain air would be in Septem-
ber. Then I thought about the
added distance I would get off the
tee at a higher elevation. However,

what really caught my attention
were the reasonable rates for tour-
nament packages.
All-inclusive prices include a
choice of accommodations, three
meals daily, all greens fees, golf
cart, practice balls, and applicable
state and local taxes. No service
charge. No tipping.
. Accommodations in the Inn or
cottage are as low as $982 per per-
son for two golfers in a double
room. If you aren't packed yet, here
are the details of the event.
Arrive early Sunday and play a
complimentary practice round.
Then attend a get-acquainted cock-
tail reception at 6 p.m. at the High
Hampton Inn.
Monday is a Medalist tourna-
ment with awards in all divisions.
Handicap adjustments on Mon-
day's scores are made for other
events using the Callaway System.
Tuesday brings a Scramble tour-
nament with each team comprised

of men and women.
On Wednesday you will play in
a Stableford tournament with each
team comprised of men and
women.
Thursday is the Medal Play
Championships in all divisions
with prizes for both men and
women. A Cocktail party and
awards banquet begins at 6 p.m.
Friday is a "Shoot-out" to the
island 8th green with a $1,000
cash prize for a hole-in-one. There
are other awards for men and
women. Play concludes at 10 a.m.
If you are not familiar with the


High Hampton Inn, it is a secluded
vacation oasis that has been a
secluded vacation Mecca in opera-
tion since 1922. Don't expect
many modem distractions as the
rustic inn and cottages do not have
televisions and telephones. You can
expect great food, golf, scenic views
and a perfect getaway from what
you are used to in Florida. The Inn
is listed in 100 Best Family Resorts
in North America and the National
Register of Historic Places.

ects and be rewarded. She has set

livestock judging practices.

helped members develop reason-
ing and speaking skills, as well as
selection skills.
"My interest and involvement
in 4-H has influenced me to con-
tinue learning and improving in


order to be a better mentor to the
members, help them with advice
about their projects, and encour-
age them to develop their poten-
tials to the fullest, while becom-
ing good, responsible citizens,"
says Freeman.

Fair Beef Breeding, Steer Show
and Scholarship committees for
several years. She also served as
Secretary and Treasurer of the
Okeechobee Livestock Show.
Freeman is a co-owner and opera-
tor of livestock auction markets in
Okeechobee and Sebring.

ous awards for her work includ-
ing: Service and Leadership
Awards from the Florida Limousin
Breeders Association, the Florida
Cattlemen Association Premier
Bull Awards (1976-1977, 1979-
1980), nominated for Florida
Woman of the Year in Agriculture.


The Florida 4-H Hall of Fame
was established in 2002 to coin-
cide with the 100th Anniversary
Celebration of the 4-H Program. It
currently contains the names of
117 inductees honored for their
service' and dedication to the
Florida 4-H. One hundred indi-
viduals, living and deceased,
became charter members during
the 2002 founding. Florida 4-H is
the youth development compo-
nent of the University of Florida's
IFAS Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice currently serving 241,000

lion alumni nationwide.
