City hires interim mana
By Cindy Monk
At the Aug. 22 Frostproof City
Council meeting, Robert
Cheatham was voted in as Inter-
im City Manager unanimously by
council members to be effective
immediately. Interim City Manag-
er Barbara Smith said, "I will call
him as soon as this meeting is
over," this brought laughs by
City of Frostproof Police Lt.
Yancy Plair and each council
member looked into Mr.
Cheatham's background as well
an extensive ten year background
investigation performed by
Charles A. Salemme.
Council member Otto Polk
said he was amazed by the inves-
tigation done, performed by
Charles A. Salemme.
Council members each said in
talking with past co-workers of
Mr. Cheatham's there were posi-
tive responses and a few negative
responses, but most felt he would
be a good candidate for Interim
Authorization was passed for
the payment of $19,968.61 to Mr.
Brock Self for the investigation of
the sexual harassment claim
made by Stella Heath against for-
mer City Manager Elly Johnson..
An update on water quality
issues raised more questions as
local resident Bea Reifreis came
forward with extensive informa-
tion regarding the city's lack of
care or knowledge in filing appro-
priate applications with the Polk
County Department of Health for
swim areas to be tested. Applica-
tions to have the water tested
once a month should be submit-
ted as long as there are open pub-
lic swim areas.
An application was not sub-
mitted for the swim area near the
boat landing or near the areas
where picnic tables once were in
use (now under water). Signs are
to be posted indicating swim
areas are open or if swim areas
are closed. Interim City Manager
Barbara Smith said the city would
post new signs in the swim areas.
The boat races which were to
be held Oct. 1 and Oct. 2 were
cancelled for this year and the
funds paid will carry over for next

mailed Aug. 19
Marsha Faux, Property
Appraiser has announced that
the Notice of Property Assess-
ment (TRIM Notices) will be
mailed on August 19 to every
property owner. It shows the
estimated "just value" of your
property as of January 1.
?When you receive your TRIM
Notice, review it carefully.
Both sides of your notice pro-
vide important information.
Please note the wording at the.
top: DO NOT PAY-THIS IS
NOT A BILL. NO money is due
at this time.
The notice will show both
last year's and this year's val-
ues and exemptions. But most
homeowners will not see
much- of an increase in the
assessed value of their home
due to Save Our Homes.? All
residences with a homestead
exemption are limited to a 3%
cap on assessment increases.
When you purchase a home
from someone who has had a
"capped" value, the "capped"
value will remain in effect
only for the year of purchase.
The primary mission at the
Property Appraiser's Office is
to estimate fair and just values
for all real and tangible prop-
erties in the county. Many fac-
tors influence value, and an
important one is the amount
that similar properties sell for
on the open market.? After
noting this year's value, ask
yourself whether your proper-
ty can be sold for the indicated
market value. This is crucial
because Florida law requires
that properties be appraised at
fair market value. If you
believe that you could not sell
your property for the market
value indicated on the notice,
you may request that the

Changes to Bus
Route 35 drastically

Polk County Transit Services

ership on its rural bus routes by
implementing changes that will

Effective September 1, transit
officials will eliminate the sel-
dom-used "Alternate Express
Route 35" in order to offer the
more popular "Regular Route

run from Frostproof to Eagle
Ridge Mall in Lake Wales, but
the alternate route takes a more
direct route along Highway 27.
Elimination of the alternate
route will enable transit officials
to offer the regular Route 35 five
"A passenger who takes Reg,
ular Route 35 to Eagle Ridge Mall
now has to wait four or five
hours to catch the next bus
back," said Jack Camp, supervi-
sor of fixed-route bus service for
PCTS. "Once we start running
the route five times a day, the
next bus will be back within a
Two stops from the alternate
route will be incorporated into
the new Route 35 a loop
around Lake Wales Plaza and a
segment from Highway 17 in
Frostproof to Highway 98 at 27.
Consequently, those few riders
who used the alternate route will
still be able to get to all the same
places, but with drastically
reduced waiting times.

'Xtreme Cuisine Cooking
School' teaches students how to
make healthy after-school snacks
After-school snacks are as
much a part of the school year as
pencils, paper and textbooks. But
if those snacks are low in nutri-
tion and fiber and high in salt,
sugar and fats they can con-
tribute to the growing problem of
Teaching students how to
make their own healthy snacks
using fresh Florida fruits and veg-
etables is the focus of a new pilot
program developed by the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Timed to coincide with the
start of the new school year, the
"Xtreme Cuisine Cooking
School" introduced students
aged 9 to 15 to the world of cook-
ing and good nutrition. The one-
and two-day classes were held at
County Cooperative Extension
Offices in Tampa, Miami, Orlando
and Tallahassee during June, July
"Many children often prepare
their own after-school snacks
when they come home each
afternoon," Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "We want to help them
change their snacking habits.
Instead of automatically reaching
for junk foods, we want them to
explore healthy alternatives by
using fresh Florida fruit and veg-
etables as ingredients for fun and
Under the guidance of Execu-
tive Chef Travis Summers, stu-
dents learned to prepare whole-
wheat pizzas, fruit parfaits and
other nutritious and tasty treats
using Summers' original recipes.
They also learned how Florida
fruit and vegetables used in these
recipes provide vitamins and
minerals that can help prevent
heart disease and other obesity-
related illnesses. In addition, stu-
dents learned the dangers caused
by excessive amounts of salt,
sugar and fats in their diet, and
how fiber could eliminate their
desire for high-calorie, low-nutri-
tion snack foods.
At the end of each session, stu-
dents learned how many calories
are needed for their age and gen-
der, the vitamin and mineral con-
tent of many Florida fruit and veg-
etables, and how to read a food
nutrition label. They also received
recipe and nutritional brochures
as well as an "Xtreme Cuisine"
certificate attesting to their skill in
the preparation of healthy

provided at these seminars will

ing choices as they become

Summer temperatures Upcoming Polk County Events
bring health dangers
As summer temperatures con-
tinue to stay in the 90s, health offi-
cials warn of the dangers of heat
stroke and heat exhaustion.
Hot temperatures can also
bring other health risks. One con-
cern is the effect of high tempera-
tures on some prescription drugs.
The guidelines that come with
prescriptions usually tell you to
keep medication refrigerated or to
keep it at "room temperature."
Drugs kept at "room tempera-
ture" should be stored in an area
that is 68 to 78 degree Fahrenheit.
Those who keep their homes
cooled with air conditioning 24
hours a day can safely leave these
prescriptions in a cabinet or draw-
er. But those who don't air condi-
tion their homes might have more
trouble keeping medication at the
High temperatures can cause
prescription drugs to degrade,
making them less effective. This
can be potentially dangerous to
those who take them. In some
cases, high heat can cause a pre-
scription drug to spoil and even
When you are given a pre-
scription drug, read the drug
information sheet carefully and
keep the drugs stored properly in
the right temperature range.
If you store prescriptions in the
refrigerator, use a thermometer to
check temperatures in different
parts of the refrigerator so you can
pick the safest place for the pre-
scriptions. For example, the veg-
etable crisper drawer is generally
warmer than the rest of the refrig-
erator. The top shelf of the refrig-
erator may be colder than the bot-
If you carry prescriptions with
you when you leave the house,
you might want to put what you
need in a pill case instead of car-
Life e f
with Katrina Elsken
trying the whole bottle around.
Don't leave prescription drugs
in a bag that is in the car while
you shop. Temperatures inside a
parked car can quickly rise to
more than 100 degrees.
If your prescriptions have been
left in the heat, consult your doc-
tor before taking any more pills.
Heat can make the pills less effec-
tive, or even toxic.
Make-up can also be damaged
by heat. Light and heat can
destroy the preservative in make-
up that help fight bacteria. Bacte-
ria can be transferred from your
face to the cosmetics when you
apply make-up; the preservatives
are in the cosmetics to prevent
this bacteria from growing. Don't
leave cosmetics in a hot car. Items
of special concern are mascara
Enriched foods, such as white
bread, can also suffer from heat
damage. For example, some
white breads have been fortified
with Omega 3 fatty acids. Pro-
longed exposure to heat can
cause these healthy fatty acids to
turn into dangerous "trans-fats."
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription drugs. Some drugs inter-
act badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered

open cuts or sores exposed to the
floodwater, keep them as clean as
