Verizon's efforts 'Heroic'


Verizon's hurricane efforts
deemed 'Heroic' by Polk Coun-
ty's Central Florida Develop-
ment Council-
As successive hurricanes
ripped through Florida last year,
each seemed to choose Polk
County as a reference point as
they laced the state, leaving
devastation and headaches for
residents, businesses and gov-
ernmental agencies in their
wake.
Despite this unprecedented


season of fury, Verizon worked
pro-actively and cooperatively
with the Polk County Emergency
Response Team in an effort to
keep telecommunications serv-
ice disruptions for Polk citizens
to a minimum.
The Central Florida Develop-
ment Agency recognized Veri-
zon's tremendous efforts during
the 2004 hurricane season with
its Hurricane Hero Award.
"The intensity of Charley,
Frances and Jeanne devastated


large parts of Polk County and
left many of our citizens needing
to put their lives back together,"
said Tom Patton, executive
director, Central Florida Devel-
opment Council (CFDC). "But
one essential tool was still with-
in reach to assist with that
process for the vast majority of
our citizens the telecommuni-
cations system. This award is a
small way to recognize Verizon's
heroic efforts to keep that sys-

arid to say 'thank you' for excep-
tional service and a job well
done."
According to Verizon
spokesperson Bob Elek,
throughout the string of hurri-
canes, Verizon maintained serv-
ice to 98 percent or more of its
network.
Further, Elek said that with-
out proper planning and essen-
tial back-up systems, however,


as much as 30 percent of Veri-
zon's lines could have been in
jeopardy. "We are very grateful
to be recognized for our efforts
during this incredible hurricane
season," said Regis Foster, direc-
tor, customer operations-inland
division, Verizon. "Hundreds of
Verizon employees worked day
and night to keep as many Polk
County customers in service as

'100 years of faith' in Frostproof


By Mattie Duncan
The first church to be estab-
lished in Frostproof is now- as we
know it-The First Presbyterian
Church, located at the corner of
North Palm Avenue and West A
Street.
Many years ago (1905) a small
group of concerned, dedicated
Christian citizens realized the
need for a place to worship. After
much prayerful thought and work
a memorable day came when
there was organized a church to
be known as "The Church Among
the Lakes."
The Reverend J. S. Townsend,
of Avon Park, who has [sic]
helped them in many ways came
once a month to fill the pulpit. His
salary was small-based on the
amount of the offering on Sunday.
In 1906 "The Church Among
the Lakes" had growing pains and
efforts were made to raise money
to build a permanent place of

Consumers warned of scam


Attorney General Charlie
Crist advised consumers of a
new and aggressive financial
scam that leaves no Floridian
immune from attack including
the Attorney General himself.
Last week; Crist received two
cashier's checks totaling
$21,000 attempting to draw the
Attorney General into the latest
variation of a familiar scam.
For more than two decades,
authorities have battled an inter-
national mail scheme common-
ly known as the "Nigerian Bank
Scam." In its traditional form,
the scam involves a promise that
an individual will pay the victim
from a large pool of money
being held overseas, if the victim
first sends a smaller amount of
money as "security." The victim
sends the money but then never
again hears from the sender.
Recently, a new twist on the
old system has emerged. In this
variation, the victim receives a
cashier's check in the mail or via
overnight delivery. The check is
for a large sum of money from
what appears to be a nationally


recognized banking institution.
No explanation accompanies
the check, but the victim may
attempt to deposit it into his or
her bank account. Should the
victim's bank accept the deposit,
the check is routed to the finan-
cial institution of origin, where it
is discovered that the account
has been closed. The check is
then forwarded to the original
holder of the closed account,
who now has the victim's bank-
ing information.
It can take some time for the
victim to realize that the integrity
of his or her bank account has
been compromised.
"The audacity of these crimi-
nals is breathtaking," said Crist.
"It's clear that these scam artists
will stop at nothing, and spare
no one, in their shameless ploy
to make a quick buck. This is a
vivid reminder that if something
sounds too good to be true, it
probably is. It is important that
all Florida consumers are aware
of this threat."
Crist is a leader in efforts
against identity theft and other


scams, and immediately recog-
nized that the cashier's checks
were of dubious authenticity. He
contacted the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement to
alert them to the scheme. FDLE
confirmed that the checks are
indeed part of a scam, and said it
appears to be a variant on the
traditional Nigerian check scam.
FDLE is now investigating this
new development.
Consumers who receive any
type of similar cashier's check or
solicitation to participate in an
advanced pay scheme should
immediately contact their local
U.S. Secret Service office. Attor--
ney General Crist also offers
these suggestions to avoid
becoming the victim of such a
scheme:
Avoid providing your per-
sonal or banking information to
any unknown person or busi-
ness.
If you receive a request for
personal or banking information

worship as services were being
held in the school house.
As the membership grew there
were those who opposed the
name "The Church Among the
Lakes" and after much thought
and discussion the little church
changed its name- and was known
as the "Union Church." This was
satisfactory for a while but soon,
one after another, groups became
conscious of differences in creeds
and churches. The remaining
members of the Union Church
feeling that this church had served
its mission saw the necessity of
affiliating itself with some denomi-
nation. They expressed their desire
to organize into a Presbyterian
Church-thus in 1915 the Union
Church became known as "The
First Presbyterian Church of Frost-
proof" and was a member of the
Presbytery of South West Florida,
U.S.A. A short time later this affilia-
tion- was transferred to the St.
Johns Presbytery of the Presbyter-
ian Church U.S.A., which at that
time comprised all of South Florida
from Orlando to Key West.
The following September a
Minister, Reverend J. E. Bird with
His family was sent here to preach-
two Sundays a month. Part-time
preaching has never been success-
ful, so in 1926, Reverend Bird
received the call from the congre-
gation as their first fulltime Minister,
and under his leadership a parson-
age was erected.
In 1949, the first church building
tq which educational Rooms had
been added, made way for a brick
Colonial building.

Leadership competition on Friday,
February 18, 2005. The competi-

ticipate in this academic competi-

her at (863) 638-2978.


About that time, the wood
frame church built in 1913 was par-
tially disassembled. It is believed
that the building was moved and
reassembled in, or near, Sebring.
Many efforts have been made dur-
ing the past several months to learn
the status of this building with no
success. If anyone reading this has
information about the story of this
building, please share it with The
First Presbyterian Church of Frost-
proof and its members. The
Church Office phone number is:
(864) 635-3955.
In 1958, the L. Maxcy family
built and gave the Educational
Wing to this building and it
includes Assembly Room-Class-
rooms and a Recreation Room.
Mrs. Duncan concludes with
the following:
At the present time the church
is a member of the Florida Pres-
bytery. It carries on a full program
of work-with men- women-young
people and children and is active in
the work of the Associate
Reformed Presbyterian Church
(ARP) and the Synod of Florida.
The present Pastor, Reverend
David Trimmier, is serving his sec-
ond pastborate here, and lives in the
brick colonial Manse with his
attractive family.

Alturas Elementary's

provides Shelter Boxes


Alturas Elementary has raised
more than $1,800 to sponsor two:
Shelter Boxes to be shipped to
displaced survivors of the tsuna-
mi.
Shelter Boxes, www.shelter-
boxusa.org, are projects of the
Rotary Club and are 33"x "24 x
24" sealed boxes that weigh
approximately 110 Ibs. Shelter
boxes include sleeping bags,
water purification tablets, water
carriers, eating utensils, a shovel,
" flashlights and batteries, rope,


rain ponchos, tools and a stove.
A Shelter Box representative
brought an actual Shelter Box to
the school on Thursday, February
17, for students, parents and staff
to inspect.,.
.$900 is the amount to sponsor
a Shelter Box and Alturas Elemen-
tary originally hoped to raise
enough to sponsor one box. The.
school, and. the community
response was so overwhelming
that enough money was raised to
sponsor two-boxes.


Polk Community College's
Collegiate: High School students
raised $100 for PCC's Hurri-
cane/40th Anniversary fund.
The fund, established by PCC
President J. Larry Durrence after
three hurricanes hit Polk County
this fall, will help PCC students
with their college finances. For
students that dropped out of the
college because of the hurri-


cane, the fund will help repay
their Pell Grants.
The CHS students raised
another $100 that was donated
to the American Red Cross
Tsunami Relief Fund.
Some 160 high school jun-
iors and seniors attend both
high school and college courses
as part of PCC's chartered Colle-
giate High School.

Young voters help Pqlk


achieve milestone


A high school registration drive
netted enough, new voters to
increase Polk County's voter rolls
above the 300,000 mark. During
Government week, January 14-
18, 412 high school students reg-
istered to vote, bringing the num-
ber of registered voters in Polk
County to 300,141.
Bartow High School won the
competition for most registra-
tions, with 110, while Homer


Addair academy won for the high-
est percentage. At Addair, 100% of
students eligible to register to vote
did so. Addair was also a winner
in the 2004 government -week
competition.
Although most of Polk County's
voters-are older, recent trends show
an increase in young voters. About
30,000 of Polk's voters are aged 18-
25, compared to more than 75,000
who are 65 years old or older.

3) dropped a three-game week-
end series against St. Thomas
University (7-5, 3-0) to open
conference play at home.
In game one last night, the
Warriors stayed right with the
Bobcats, taking a 2-1 lead after

strikeouts and only allowing two
runs. Gonzalez contributed two
hits and two RBI's. Cruz added
two hits and a RBI as well.

stayed with STU through the 3rd
with a 2-2 score. From there St.

three, three, and seven in the
4th, 5th, and 6th-innings respec-
tively to end the game ahead 1'5-
2. For the Warriors, Ryan
Kendrick nabbed two hits.
Grover Benton and Heath
O'Neal added a hit apiece. In
game three, WIU took the early
1-0 lead once again but gave up
four runs in the 3rd and two in
the 4th before adding their sec-
ond run. WIU scored once in

the Bobcats just wouldn't let up
as they hammered out nine runs
total for the game, including a
grand-slam homer by Peter
Rodriguez. The final score was
9-3 in favor of the Bobcats.
WIU's Gonzalez led the WIU
effort on offense with three hits.
O'Neal added two as well. Cruz,
Scott Scherer, and Travis Hill
each connected for a hit apiece
too.
