New storeowners welcomed


Randy and Sotera Lacourse are
the new owners of Corky's Coun-
try Store located at 348 County
Road 630E, Frostproof. They pur-
chased Corky's last October 18th
from Collin and Robbin Fazzini
and took over daily operation of
the store as of December 1,2004.
They will continue to run the
store as a family operation with
the help of Silvester and Maria
Castillo, Sotera's daughter and
son-in-law, along with their chil-
dren Cassandra and Laura.
The Lacourses said 'the com-
munity has made them feel so
welcomed in a short time'.
Randy and Sotera own a farm
in Pemberville, Ohio that is
presently for sale. Randy is a
mechanic for Dahmlier Chrysler
Corporation and will return to
Toledo and come back to Frost-
proof in April after he retires April
1st.
At the present time Sotera and


the Castillo family will operate the
store in Randy's absence.
Randy was raised on Lake Erie
hunting, fishing and trapping. He
remains to be an avid hunter and
fisherman.
Sotera retired from a county
job working for the Wood County
Commissioners for 27 years.
The Lacourse's want to let the
community know that Corky's
will remain the same "Corky's"
that everyone in and around
Frostproof has come to love and
depend on.
All the basic staples will still be
available. Of course bread, milk,
eggs and all varieties of beer, ciga-
rettes and snuff will always be
available at the same competitive
low price.
Corky's hunting and fishing
supplies are presently limited to a
small area of the store. Randy
plans to dedicate the present
room.entirely to hunting and fish-


ing supplies, including live baits
for fishing, guns and ammo, dog
supplies, and earlier hours to
accommodate sportsmen and
women. He also plans to have a
check station and issue hunting
and fishing license.
Randy will also be expanding
the pool supply part of Corky's by
adding pool service and mainte-
nance to the business. Randy's
son Matthew will be joining the
team when he graduates this
summer with plans to start full
service pool service in May or
June. Corky's presently has a full
line of pool supplies and chemi-
cals in stock, including an 850-gal-
lon supply tank of chlorine, and
does water quality and analysis.
You can bring in your water sam-
ple and have it checked at no
charge.
Future plans also include
adding a walk-in cooler so

January-2004 Citizens Bank of
Frostproof ("Citizens") and
American Banking Corporation
("American") announced that
they have entered into a defini-
tive agreement for Citizens to
acquire American, based in Lake
Wales, Florida, and its bank sub-
sidiary, American Bank & Trust
("AB&T") for approximately
$20,000,000 in cash. Citizens will
pay $48.25 for each of Ameri-
can's outstanding shares. AB&T
has approximately $125 million
in assets and the combination
forms a bank with approximately
$240 million in assets. The trans-
action remains subject to share-
holder and regulatory approvals,
and, if approved, is expected to
close in the second quarter of
2004.
"The merger of our two cen-
tral Florida banks is a win-win for
shareholders and customers of
each bank, and forms a strong
institution that will serve this
community for years to come.
Customers of both banks will be
offered new products and more
.lending opportunities because of
this transaction. We will contin-
ue the strong community service
traditions of both banks," said
Greg Littleton, President of Citi-
zens, who will be president and

original program from charter
night and the Rotary Code of
Ethics. Frank Thompson had
saved the program since Febru-
ary 1928, when the Frostproof
Rotary Club was chartered. Char-
ter night had taken place at the
Highlands Hotel in Avon Park,
when the Avon Park Rotary Club
sponsored the Frostproof Rotary
Club. Frank Thompson had
been a charter member of the
Frostproof Rotary Club. The
Rotary Code of Ethics was found
in its original 1928 frame that
Frank Thompson had prepared.
So, thank you to the Thomp-
son family for realizing the value
of these items. And thank you to
June Felt for discovering them
and sharing them with the Frost-
proof Rotary Club.
By the way, the charter night
program and the Rotary Code of
Ethics will be on display at the
Frostproof Historical Museum at
210 South Scenic Highway.
Museum hours are Tuesdays,

Awesome discoveries

January-2004 Rotary Receives
76-Year Old "Charter Night"
Memorabilia
What are the chances that
after 76 years, memorabilia from
the chartering of the Frostproof
Rotary Club will be located? The
answer is. "pretty good" when
you're dealing with Frostproof
Historical Museum's Grande
Dame, June Felt. Ramon Thomp-
son, a dear friend of June Felt,
recently passed away. Ramon's
widow Amanda decided to sell
the home and 300 acres of grove
located on South Lake Reedy
Boulevard. Just prior to the clos-
ing, Ed Flood, a friend of the
Thompson's, asked June if she
wanted to look through the items
left in the home to see if there
was anything that the Frostproof
Historical Museum would be
interested in. After looking over
the home, June realized that she
could not possibly go through
everything before the closing, so
she had the items delivered to
her home, filling up half of her
front porch!
June started through the
items immediately and soon
found the original blueprints to
the Ramon Theater. The theater
was built by Ramon Thompson's
father Frank and was named
after Ramon. June forwarded the
blueprints to the Chamber of
Commerce and they will be used
in the remodeling of the theater.
Then June discovered two
items of value to the members of

Postal employees fill
shelves at Care Center
May-2004 On Saturday, May
8th, the employees at the Frost-
proof Post Office delivered mail
and collected food at the same
time. Thanks to the kind donations
of Frostproof residents, the carriers
were able to meet their goal for the


2004 food drive which netted 5,003
pounds of food to fill .the shelves at
the Frostproof Care Center. Ralph
Waters said the amount of food
collected would feed children all
summer and help those in need in
the Fall months as well. Thanks to
everyone, this was our most suc-
cessful food drive ever.
Debbra Monk is the annual
coordinator for this event at the
Frostproof Post Office, and wishes
to thank all the employees
involved for their dedication and
hard work, for another successful
event.
As part of the annual food drive
and charitable -donation Frost-
proof's new Postmaster Rick Ben-
son enhanced the Federal Cam-
paign by challenging the postal
employees to another notable
cause. He said if they donated
$1,000. or more to a charity of their
choice, he would in turn run their
route for a day. Letter carrier Deb-
bra Monk met that challenge and
donated $1,000. to the Frostproof

FWC announces top spots for stripes


Bass anglers don't have to hang
up their fishing rods for the winter
just because Florida's legendary
largemouths pretty much come
down with lockjaw when the
weather gets too cool. Fall and win-
ter months offer the best striped
bass and hybrid bass fishing here in
the state that bills itself as the Fish-
ing Capital of the World.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
has some tips for anglers who
would like to go after these mon-
ster fish that scientists call
"morones" (because of their sci-
entific family name, "Moronidae").
"In Florida, morones keep to
freshwater," said FWC fisheries
biologist Rick Long. "Atlantic and
Gulf saltwaters are too warm for
them."
Striped bass stripers for short
- can get enormous. The state
record is a 42.25 pounder, bagged
in the Apalachicola River in 1993.
Anglers catch stripers on heavy
bait-casting or open-faced spinning
tackle with 12- to 25-pound test
line. For big stripers, live shad or
small eels are the best baits. For
smaller stripers, yellow or white
1/8- to 1 /2-ounce jigs are good
baits, and so are plastic twitch baits
and poppers for surface fishing and
also spoons.
Sunshine bass a hybrid prod-
uct of artificially crossing a female
white bass with a male striper -
also are among the heavyweight
morones in Florida's waters. The
FWC stocks a million of them in
fish management areas and other
public waters every year. So far, the
state record is 16.31 pounds. That
one came out of Lake Seminole in
1985. Sunshine anglers use lighter
gear than striper fishermen and
many of them favor lures that
resemble shad. Other popular baits
include live minnows, live or dead
shrimp and chicken liver, fished on
the bottom.


"White bass are smaller, but
they are scrappy fighters on light
tackle," Long said. "They'll hit flies,
spinners, small plugs or minnows."
The state record white bass is
4.69 pounds, and it came out of
(where else but?) the Apalachicola
River in 1982. FWC fisheries biolo-
gist said the most productive
morone fishing in Florida in 2005
will be:
The Apalachicola River/Lake
Seminole This is the home of all
three state record morones. In the
lake, stripers and sunshine bass
congregate along the old river
channels and near the dam in fall
and winter. They migrate up Geor-
gia's rivers in the spring.
In the river, stripes and sunshine
bass range from the dam to the
coast during fall and winter around
pilings, deep channels and drop-
offs. Larger ones hang around the
dam in the spring. They go after
bucktail jigs and crankbaits. White
bass feed in schools, and they like
live crayfish and freshwater shrimp.
* Lake Talquin/Ochlockonee River
- This system produces lots of 10-
to 20-pound stripers that take to live
shad, jigs and spoons. White bass,
rebounding from recent drought,
historically approach state record
size. They are all over the place in
the fall and winter and migrate to
the dam in the spring.
St. Johns River The FWC
doesn't stock the river with sun-
shine bass anymore, but it still has a
few. Stripers are a different story
with 8- to 12-pound fish showing
up regularly. Striped bass move
throughout the river in fall and win-
ter. The best spots to catch them
are around jetties, the bombing
ranges in Lake George,the lower
Oklawaha River, Buffalo Bluff,
Shands Bridge, Buckman and
other bridges in Jacksonville. The
big stripers congregate in cool-
water creeks in the summer. Live
shad and shiners, jigs and shad-imi-

tating crankbaits are the baits to
use in this river. Blackwater/Yellow
rivers In this northwest Florida
area, the FWC stocks these waters
with stripers every year. The best
fishing is in the upper Blackwater
Bay, near the river mouths in the fall
and winter and upstream in the
summer. Sometimes, the best time
to go is at night. Be prepared to bag
10-, 20- or even 30-pound striped
bass. Use live mullet, menhaden or
shrimp for bait. Shad-imitating
lures also work. Choctawhatchee
River The FWC stocks this river
with stripers and sunshine bass.
The main fishery is between SR 20
and Choctawhatchee Bay in Wal-
ton and Washington counties dur-
ing fall and winter. The baits to use
are live finger mullet, shad and
menhaden. During cold weather,
anglers use shad-imitating lures to
bag fish from surface-feeding
schools. During summertime, the
fish'seek out cool-water tributaries.
Escambia River The FWC
has begun stocking this river annu-
ally, alternating striped bass and
sunshine bass. Anglers catch both
species in the lower 10 miles of the
river during fall and winter. The fish
migrate up-river in the spring.
Dawn and dusk are prime times for
striper fishing, especially on a
falling tide. In the lower tidal part of
the river, points of land extending
into the river are good fishing spots.
The best baits on this river are live
mullet and menhaden, shad- or
mullet-imitating lures, live shrimp


and twister-tail type jigs.
St. Marys River Striped bass
are the most popular sport fish in
the St. Marys River and connected
waterways. The FWC stocks the St.
Marys with stripers, but it also gets
some migrating fish from the St.
Johns River. Stripers tend to spend
the winter in the lower river and
move north above U.S. 17 in the
spring. On the St. Marys, anglers
bag stripers between 1-95 and the
town of St. Marys near the mouths
of the larger tributaries, along deep
banks and around the 1-95 Bridge
Pilings. On the Nassau River, which
is connected to the St. Marys,
striped bass hang around the con-
fluence with Thomas Creek to
below U.S. 17 around Pearson
Island. In the summer, stripers con-
gregate in tributaries with cool-
water discharge. Trolling along or
casting to steep banks with jigs or
shad-imitating lures is the way to
go on this river. Live shrimp work
too.
Eagle Lake This is a 200-acre
reclaimed phosphate pit in
Hamilton County. It's a fish
management area that the FWC
stocks with 50-100 sunshine bass
per acre annually. The lake's abun-
dance of shad nurtures sunshine
bass to 6 or 7 pounds in two years.
Fall and winter are the best times to
go. Rapidly retrieved crankbaits
fished deep and suspending shad
imitators work well on this lake.
Edward Medard Lake The
FWC stocks 100 sunshine bass per
