Residents aid in recovery


By Cindy Monk
So many people have been
affected by the destruction from
Hurricane Katrina to Alabama,
Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Although, Frostproofwas hit by
three major hurricanes last year
there is no comparison to the dev-
astation those folks in the three
States have endured.-But Frost-
proof, being the "Friendly City," is
making sure every attempt is
made to assist in the relief efforts.
Many local residents and business-
es have been collecting donations
to the aid the victims of Hurricane
Katrina.
First Baptist Church of Frost-
proof members felt they wanted to
help give relief 'to areas that


haven't yet been given any assis-
tance. Several members have
worked diligently this past week.
contacting area businesses and
individuals for donations.
Pascagoula, Mississippi is one of
the towns the Church family and
other volunteers will be aiding.
Church member and local resi-
dent Tina Scali said, "the response
has been awesome, not only from
the Frostproof community but
from other neighboring areas as
well."
"In just five days so many dona-
tions have been made," she said.
Tina and her husband Ron will
be updating everyone as soon as
they return from Mississippi.
Tina O'Neal, a pilot teacher and
coach at FMSHS has family in Oak


Grove, La., said she will be going
back home to help folks in her
hometown in the very near future.
Tina's father oversees the Shell Oil,
Enchilada Platform on the Gulf
Shelf. Tina was born and raised in
SLouisiana and came to this area a
year and a half ago. Shortly after
the news of Hurricane Katrina
pounding and flooding Alabama,
Louisiana and Mississippi, Ms.
O'Neal voiced her concerns about
several of her family members.
She knew her Mom, Dad and
brother were fine, but due to the
power lines and phone service
out, her and her immediate family
were unable to find anything out

several cousins and friends who
lived in the flooded areas.
Ms. O'Neal said "it's been very
difficult watching the coverage on
television and not being able to get
in contact with family and friends."
She also said she felt there should
have been a better plan of action in
place for transportation of evac-
uees and that the Levy should have
been reinforced years ago.
FMSHS Principal Steven White
said some faculty members have
been working with the American
Red Cross to assist with the recov-
ery effort. For the last couple of

asked City Finance Director Bar-
bara Smith when the actual bal-
ance sheets would be available.
She said she could possibly have
them before the next meeting.
Frostproof resident and local busi-
ness owner Estelle Sullivan said
she would be willing to do her part
and pay the increased rates in
order to help the City get out of
debt.
Council member Polk asked
City Attorney Brian Haas, how
might the Council be able to cut his
fees? Attorney Haas replied with
the City's continued growth and
other factors he didn't s where it
could be cut. If anything it he felt
his fee wasn't where it should be.
Local resident Anthony Sackett
raised a two part question to the
Council about the possible 9 per-
cent increase in garbage rates. He
asked with the increase in place,
would there be an added increase
in the rate when the Polk County
Landfill located on Golfview Park-
Cutoff Rd. shuts down and the
garbage then has to be hauled to
Lakeland? If so, how much of an
increase? This question was not
fully answered.
After about an hour and forty-
fifty minutes of discussion regard-
ing what cuts could be made to the
tentative budget, local resident Bea
Reifeis stood at the podium and
asked, what services have been cut
from the budget and what expens-
es were added to the budget? She
also stated the citizens of Frost-
proof deserve a summary of the
City's expenses. It was suggested
that copies of the tentative budget
and/or actual budget be given out
at the Public Meetings so they
could be viewed by the citizens
attending. Mayor Damon Nichol-
son replied that the budgets are
Public Record and anyone could
receive a copy from City Hall dur-


ing normal business hours. It is
suggested to call City Hall in
advance at 635-7854 to request the
copy prior to going to City Hall. The
Budget is about twenty-five pages
long.
The 5:30 p.m. meeting ended
nearly two hours after it started.
The 6 p.m. meeting got underway
with the acceptance of resignation
of Council member Larry Hadden.
Mayor Damon Nicholson then rec-
ommended Larry Sullivan to fill the
vacancy. Council approved the rec-
ommendation and Mr. Sullivan
was sworn in. Immediately follow-
ing, Interim City Manager Carl R.
Cheatham and City Clerk Tenny R.
Croley were both sworn in as well.
A Proclamation to declare Sept.
1,7 Sept. 23 "Constitution Week "
was signed and presented to the
Daughters of the American Revolu-
tion member Sylvia Carson.
The Council then approved the
proposed Resolution 2005-23 to
increase the garbage rate charged
to the City's utility customers, thus
passing on the 9 percent increase
in rates charged to the City by Flori-
da Refuse.

Leave those



whiskers alone!


That's the advice of animal
experts when it comes to vibris-
sae, the technical name for
whiskers. They serve a purpose
and it's not a good idea to cut or
trim them, as many pet owners
feel they should do.
"It's best to just leave them
alone," said Dr. Bonnie Beaver, an
animal behavior expert at Texas
A&M University's College of Vet-
erinary Medicine and Biomedical
Sciences.
"Some pet owners might get
the urge to take out some scissors
and give some long whiskers a lit-
tle trim, but they should not.
Whiskers serve a very real pur-
pose they are a sensory device
for the dog or cat.
"Especially in cats, whiskers
keep the animal from bumping
into things at night and help with
depth perception. They help the


animal decide where it's going, so
it's not a good idea to cut them."
Cats can have whiskers on the
sides of their face, under their
chin, above their eyes and on the
back of their front legs. The aver-
age cat has between 20 and 30
whiskers. Whiskers are attached
to a nerve under the skin, and
provide cats with all sorts of infor-
mation. They can tell the animal
about its immediate surroundings
and also help it move in closed-in
areas where space is tight.
"Sometimes, whiskers will nat-
urally fall off," Beaver explained.
"If this happens, it's nothing to be
alarmed about. Over time, the
whisker will grow back."
"Dogs use their whiskers in the
same way as cats do," Dr. Beaver
said, "but because cats are more
nocturnal, they tend to rely on
their whiskers a little more."
