City seeks new manager

Former resident Asked if he'd ever been fired Council member Otto Polk i.. .

considered for
interim manager
By Cindy Monk
A former Frostproof resident
is being considered for the posi-
tion of interim city manager.
In a special City Council
meeting held Monday, Aug. 15
the council interviewed Interim
City Manager candidate, Robert
Carl Cheatham.
Mr. Cheatham gave a brief
background of his former work
history in utilities, Public Works
and Local Government service.
He also mentioned that he
lived in Frostproof on B Street at
a very young age and moved
away for a short time, then
returned to Frostproof where he
graduated from Frostproof High
School in 1953. He was a public
works director for the City of
Lake Wales and city manager in
Aniston, Ala., as well as city
manager for Winter Haven.

had not but added that Winter
Haven city commissioners had
asked him to retire in a 3-2 vote
and gave him quite a retirement
package he was pleased with.
He retired four years ago and
decided to go back into the
workforce on a part-time basis
as a substitute teacher. Most
recently, he has been subbing at
Westwood Middle School.
Council member Kay Hutzel-
man asked Mr. Cheatham if he
was hired as interim City Man-
ager what he feels would be first
on his agenda. He replied "com-
pleting the budget," and "mak-
ing an assessment of the com-
munity and city employees
Asked what his strengths
were and he replied, "31 years
of experience answers that."
He repeated "I'm interested
in short term only" during the
public interview, although he
said he would stay on as long as
it took the council to find a per-
manent city manager.

asKed ii lhe WOUIU e willing lt
sign a waiver for a background
check and Mr. Cheatham said, "I
have no problem with that."
Then he was asked if there has
ever been an informal or formal
complaint filed, or sexual
harassment complaint filed and
he replied, "no".
A motion was made by coun-
cil member Otto Polk to go
ahead and hire Mr. Cheatham
since the need for an interim
city manager is imperative and
Mr. Cheatham has had several
years of background in local
Interim City Manager Bar-
bara intervened and said that
she felt that City Attorney Brian
Haas should be informed before
a motion was made. Frostproof
resident and local business

ditches and creeks prevented
water from moving south.
Crooked Lake is connected to
Lake Clinch through a manmade
ditch first dug in 1891, Mr.
Spence explained. He said for
many years, due to low water
levels, the ditch was not needed
for flood control. It became over-
grown with vegetation.
Mr. Spence said earlier this
year when Crooked Lake's rising
waters threatened area homes,
county officials cleaned out and
removed vegetation from the
ditch for the first time in many
Crooked Lake is 123 feet
above sea level. Lake Clinch's
lake level is 109 feet, he said.
"Water runs downhill."
From Lake Clinch, water runs
through a ditch and pipe system
through downtown Frostproof
to Lake Reedy, which has a lake
level of about 80 feet above sea
level, Mr. Spence said.
He said originally there was a
creek that ran through the City of
Frostproof from Lake Clinch to
Lake Reedy. Over the decades,
some property owners have put
pipes in where the creek once
ran, he said. Some of these pipes
are not large enough to accom-
modate the needed water flow,
he said. The county is currently
in the process of replacing these
with larger pipes.
In a joint effort between Polk
County, the City of Frostproof
and South West Florida Water
Management District, a plan is
under way to put a pipe under
Wall Street from Lake Clinch to
Lake Reedy. They have hired the
engineering firm Chastain Skill-

caused some Frostproof resi-

potential health hazards due to

ria and came back in the safe
range. He said fish caught in the
lake should be safe as long as it
is cooked properly.
Approximately 20 miles from
Frostproof, Saddlebag Lake has
flooded, threatening homes. Mr.
Spence said power to more than
250 homes was turned off due to
safety concerns because of the
high water.
"We have seen an extreme
rise in the lake levels, wetland
levels and groundwater levels in
the past five years, just from rain-
fall," he said.
Mr. Spence said they hope to
pump water from Saddlebag
Lake two miles to Lake Rosalie.
This will require getting permis-
sion from two water manage-
ment districts as well as private
property owners. He added they
will also have to make sure the
project will not negatively
impact Lake Rosalie. He said the
county has allocated $500,000
for that project and they hope to
be able to start work in two to
three weeks.

Heath's city position still unclear

By MaryAnn Morris
One issue facing a new city
manager will be the city position
held by Stella Heath.
In her sworn deposition taken
July 11, 2005, during the investi-
gation of her allegation of sexual
harassment against then City
Manager Elly Johnson Ms. Heath
refers to herself as "Assistant City
Manager of Frostproof." But city
records don't indicate if the city
ever actually created the assis-
tant city manager position.
Disputed minutes of a City
Council Workshop Meeting of
April 4, 2005, included a discus-
sion, motion and second by the
city council, to appoint her as
"Assistant City Manager" with a
salary of $50,000. But this sec-
tion of the minutes was typed in
after the typist had left for vaca-
tion and no mention of the dis-
cussion exists in the clerk's
handwritten notes from the
meeting. The remainder of the
minutes tracks the clerk's notes
almost exactly. The tape from
the meeting was apparently

investigated allegations that the
minutes had been tampered
with, but no charges were filed
as the investigator said he could
not determine who had changed
the minutes, since several peo-
ple may have had access to that
"The Frostproof City Charter
does not allow the City Council

to hire anyone but the City Man-
ager," said Mayor Damon
Nicholson. City Attorney Brian
Haas agreed.
"By charter the City Council
may not create the position of
Assistant City Manager or any
other position," said Attorney
Haas. Even if the City Council did
discuss Ms. Heath's position, the
Council cannot hire her, he
Former City Manager Elly
Johnson was the only person
who could have created an
"Assistant City Manager" posi-
tion. Mr. Johnson himself, cited
in a State Attorney's Report,
attested he knew nothing of any
such discussion by the City
"I did not make any such
motion, nor would I," said Coun-
cil Member Mike Denby, who the
controversial minutes listed as
making the motion. Council
Member Kay Hutzelman is cited
as remembering her second of
his motion.
"Stella has been the Assistant
to the City Manager for quite
some time," said Mayor Nichol-
Acting Interim City Manager
Barbara Smith, the city's finance
office, explained that when Jeff
Brown was city manager, Ms.
Heath held the position of assis-
tant to the city manager and was
paid $28,000 a year. Since Ms.
Heath also did work for the
Chamber of Commerce during
her work day, the chamber reim-

bursed the city $10,000 a year.
Ms. Smith said Ms. Heath's
$28,000 salary included this
$10,000 reimbursement.
When City Manager Jeff
Brown left last September, the
City Council appointed Ms.
Heath.as interim city manager
while they sought a replace-
ment. At this time, her salary
was increased to around
$56,000/year. However, Ms.
Heath was no longer to handle
Chamber of Commerce business
during her normal working
hours. Ms. Smith said the city
was not concerned if Ms. Heath
worked for the chamber after
hours or on the weekends.
On Oct. 1, 2004, Ms. Heath
was given a cost of living pay
raise along with other city
employees, bringing her salary
to around $57,000/year.
When Elly Johnson was hired
as city manager in April 2005,
Ms. Heath's salary was dropped
to $50,000/year. Mr. Johnson's
salary as city manager was
City records are not clear
about Ms. Heath's job title at that
time, but minutes of city meet-
ings refer to her as "Assistant City
In June, after the controversy
about minutes of the April 4,
2005 meeting, Ms. Heath's salary
was reduced back to about
$29,000/year, as assistant to the
city manager.
According to Ms. Smith, Ms.
Heath has been on administra-

tive leave which started when
the State Attorney was investi-
gating the allegations of records
tampering. She has continued to
work at the Chamber of Com-
merce while on leave from her
city position.
Ms. Smith said she will not
make any decision on the matter
since she will only be the interim
city manager for about two
weeks while the city finds a long-
term interim city manager.
On Monday, the city council
interviewed Carl Cheatham, 70,
who retired after a long career in
government, most recently serv-
ing as city manager for Winter
Haven. Mr. Cheatham said he is
not looking for permanent work,
but would be willing to serve as
interim city manager until the
city hires a new city manager.
Mr. Cheatham is former Frost-
proof resident.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog."
Most citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe
their public officials at work, or to determine how well public insti-
tutions are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more lik..e, "mad dogs"
than "watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog"
role as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a
courteous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

Historic Bok Sanctuary displays Starbuck's artwork

"Florida-An Enchanted
Land" by Santa Rosa Beach artist
Dorothy Starbuck will be on
exhibit at Historic Bok Sanctuary
through September 29. Star-
buck's paintings mirror the beau-
ty, color and tranquility of tropical
Florida landscapes. Visitors can
view these extraordinary works in

the Visitor Center from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. The cost is included with
general Sanctuary admission or
Starbuck uses her exceptional
talent to preserve the images of
Florida's diverse and dwindling
natural features. Her images rep-
resent the Atlantic and Gulf

beaches, lakes, rivers, springs,
marshlands, swamps, ham-
mocks, mangroves, forests and
pastures. Her representational
style conveys calmness and seren-
ity and her diligence ensures
accurate portrayal of all elements
painted. Her powers of direct
observation, pursuit of excellence

and ability to capture the nuances
of color, light and shadow give
her oil paintings an authentic feel.
Starbuck's paintings have
been featured in the Florida-State
Capitol Building, Tallahassee; the
Cannon House Office Building,
Washington, D.C., and in numer-
ous Florida galleries and muse-

ums, including Elliott Museum,
Stuart, A.E. Bachus Gallery, Fort
Pierce, and the Historical Muse-
um of Southern Florida, Miami.
Her works are part of the U.S. Air
Force's permanent collection.
Since 1978, she has exhibited in
juried art festivals and has gar-
nered more than 50 awards.

General Sanctuary admission
is $8 adults and $3 children ages
5-12. Members and children
under 5 are admitted free. For
questions about the exhibition or
art purchases, contact Pirjo Resti-
na at (863) 734-1221 or e-mail

Park opens cosmic coaster-Galaxy Spin

Cypress Gardens Adventure
Park heads for the final frontier as
their fifth coaster, Galaxy Spin,
blasted off on Wednesday, August
17th. Festivities will continue
through the weekend
Galaxy Spin is a spinning
mouse coaster, a twist on the
more traditional mouse style.
Passengers are strapped into cars,
not a coaster train and then sent
off on an adventure of cosmic
proportions! The cars themselves
spin as they dip and dive through
the hairpin twists and turns of the
track, taking passengers on a
unique coaster experience.
"We're proud to launch the
fifth coaster and 39th ride at
Cypress Gardens Adventure Park.
Galaxy Spin is a wonderful com-
plement to our ride selection, in
keeping with our effort to offer

'We're proud to launch the fifth coaster and
39th ride at Cypress Gardens Adventure Park.
Galaxy Spin is a wonderful complement to our
ride selection, in keeping with our effort to
offer great family excitement,"
Kent Beuscher, President/CEO

great family excitement," says
Kent Buescher, President/CEO. "I
think guests of all ages will find it
a thrilling ride, with enough exhil-
aration to keep the thrill-seekers
happy, but not too intense for our
younger and older guests."
The alien- theme is in keeping
with the park's retro atmosphere,
recalling the fascination America
had with UFO's in the middle of
the last decade.

"When Cypress Gardens was
in its first hey day during the
1950's and 60's, there was also
another phenomenon occurring.
More and more Americans were
looking to the skies for signs of'lit-
tle green men,"' says Buescher
with a grin. "Roswell was a big
deal and reports of alien abduc-
tions and UFO sightings were
growing. When we were search-
ing for our fifth coaster, the spin-

ning cars just lent themselves to a
UFO theme. This is our tongue-in-
cheek tribute to that facet of
Galaxy Spin joins an already
exhilarating park experience. Dis-
cover 39 exciting rides, spectacu-
lar daily shows, and Jubilee Junc-
tion, a picturesque village where
food and shopping take an enter-
taining old-fashioned twist. Come
face-to-face with more than 150
animals in Nature's Way or take in
the beauty of Wings of Wonder,
the famed butterfly arboretum.
Revisit historic gardens, graceful
southern belles, and gasp in won-
der at gravity-defying water ski
shows. It's adventure for all ages!
The park is located in Winter
Haven, Florida two miles west of
SR 27 on Cypress Gardens Boule-

WIU officials to attend

roundtable discussion

Webber International Univer-
sity's Dr. Keith Wade, Chief Aca-
demic Officer and Mr. Bruce
Sabin, Director of Institutional
Effectiveness, will moderate a
roundtable discussion at the
2005 Annual Meeting of the
Commission on Colleges of the
Southern Association of Colleges
and Schools (the body which
accredits colleges and universi-
ties in this region). The round-
table.discussion, entitled Bun-
-yanesque Tasks with Lilliputian
Resources: A Small School's
Approach to the Reaffirmation
Process, is intended to be a
fqrum for small schools to share
expertiseat managing their reac-
credidation process.
Wade, who drafted the ses-
sion proposal, notes "the accred-

station requirements are the
same for huge schools and tiny
schools. It's all about continuous
improvement, so it's a great
thing that yields tremendous
results, but it takes some creativ-
ity for small schools to complete
all the tasks they must complete.
We thought we could share
some of the things we've learned
with other small schools who
are perhaps not as far along in
the process yet."
Webber's President, Rex
Yentes notes "We always come
back from SACS learning so
much. Keith and Bruce are doing
some great things here, so we're
very excited that they've been
given the opportunity to share
some of our ideas with their col-
