Property tax notices sent out


Joe G. Tedder, Tax Collector,
announced that annual property
tax notices to all of Polk County's
property owners were mailed
out on Nov. 1.
"Property owners should be
receiving their bills in the mail in
the coming days", said Tedder.
"We want taxpayers to make
sure they get a bill on or before
Nov. 14."
The property tax bill mailing
went out this week to over
389,650 property owners.
A separate bill is sent out for


each parcel or account. Howev-
er, failure to receive a tax notice
for a particular parcel or account
does not relieve the property
owner of their obligation to pay
their taxes.
Florida law makes taxpayers
responsible for knowing that
their property taxes are due and
payable each year.
"While the responsibility is on
the property owner to make sure
that they receive a bill," Joe Ted-
der states, "our office works hard
each year, to notify the public


when tax bills are sent out and
due. And because of the way the
law is written, the burden
remains with the property owner
to notify our office should they
fail to receive a bill."
Taxes for 2005 have a total
taxable amount of $523,754,064,
as compared to last year's tax roll
which had a total taxable
amount of $432,892,690. The
increases this year reflect an
increase both in appraised values
across the county as well as mill-
age rates levied by the various

roll represents a 21% increase in
taxes and assessments billed
from the prior year.
Tedder's office also provides
an insert with the tax notice to
help answer taxpayer questions.
The insert provides instructions
and information, including a list-
ing of taxing and levying authori-
ties and their telephone num-
bers, as well as a brief
description of taxes and/or
assessments that may appear on
an individual's tax bill.

City careful




in making




decisions


By Cindy Monk

The Frostproof City Council
meeting held Monday, Nov. 7
showed council members to
be more vigilant in their deci-
sion making in regards to items
listed on Nov. 7 agenda.
Following the approval of
minutes by the council, the
council commended City Clerk
Tenny Croley on the excellent
job she has been doing.
Comments from the public
brought forth Sean Roper of
Colony Avenue, Frostproof,
requesting permission from
the council to continue to park
two trucks at the end of Colony
Avenue. His said his request
came because Code Enforce-
ment told him he could no
longer park the vehicles there
unless he had permission from


the council. The council did
not commit to his request, but
did say they would go by and
look where the trucks had
been parking.
Doug Wise requested the
status of the debris removal bid
that the Wise Bros., Inc. had
put in. Mr. Wise was told that
there was an advertisement
running and to re-enter his bid.
He replied he had.
The first item listed was the
second reading of Ordinance
No. 2005-49 Cemetery Restric-
tions. Councilmember Otto
Polk suggested that Section G
of the cemetery be "grandfa-
thered in" since there were
grave sites existing with marble
or granite coping and gravel. It
was agreed by the council to

Frostproof News/Cindy Monk
Frostproof Rotarian Judy Brown (center) and Maydelle
Moore (Judy's Mom ) as well as several other Rotary
members visited the Frostproof Historical Museum on
Thursday, Oct. 27 as part of the weekly luncheon. Mrs.
June Felt (right), Director of the museum was the Rotary
guest speaker and invited all Rotary members to tour the
museum and learn about some of Frostproofs' history.


Frostproof News/Cindy Monk
Frostproof Historical Museum Director, June Felt,
describes to members of the Frostproof Rotary Club vis-
iting the museum the history of the leggins on display.
Mrs. Felt explained that her husband August Felt was
called to active duty on March 10, 1942. She went on to
say at that time the Army didn't have uniforms to issue at
Camp Blanding, so he was issued a World War I uniform.
Colonel Felt was in the Army Chemical Unit until he
retired and his WWII gas mask and uniform are also on
display at the museum.

Cheerleaders gain funds
The Frostproof Rotary Club donated a $300 check to three
FHS cheerleaders on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2005 at the weekly
Rotary luncheon.
Kaleigh Williams, Yahtea Benton and Jordan Mills were
chosen as All American Cheerleaders while they attended
a cheerleading camp over the past summer. The girls were
very appreciative of the donation they received saying "it
will help with their travel expenses". The All American
squad will perform at the Orange Bowl during the Christ-
mas holidays. Pictured with the cheerleaders is Rotary
President Bea Reifeis.

Each and every one of us has much
to be thankful for. Have you taken the
time to countyour blessings, lately?
Our Church Family would like

of thanks on Thursday, Nov. 24 at

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers
or corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try
to control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrali-
ty. We try to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous
discussion of public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud
to understand the difference.

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your
editor.

Peer mediation



team gives update


By Jessica Chavis and
Stephanie Melton

We the peer facilitators of
Frostproof High School are a
group of student mentors who
are ready and willing to help our
fellow students through any of
the problems in which they may
encounter.
This year, our team invited
the Bartow peer facilitators to
Frostproof to administer a work-
shop on mediation. The Facilita-
tors of Frostproof along with the
Facilitators of Bartow participat-
ed in initiatives such as Leg pat,
Human knot, and the Radioac-
tive River, and soon following
together processed the initia-
tives.


Other things we are involved
in this year or have conquered
already include: 'Red Ribbon
Week' which was held from Oct.
23 to Oct. 31 lead by Jesse Land
and Joey Garcia.
Right now we are participants
of Teen Trendsetters lead by
Emily Kuchinskus, Mix It Up lead
by Monica Mills; and Janae Gay
and Levette Rucks are exploring
their options for Teen Pregnancy.
Our peer group is lead by Mr.
Tilley (a great teacher). We do
initiatives like the Trust Fall, Traf-
fic jam, and many others that
make our team gain trust
amongst us. With the facilitation
skills we have learned our, group
plans to help the school and
community.


It started with a dream in a
Cypress swamp more than 70
years ago and grew into a land-
mark of grace, beauty and fun
known around the world.
Cypress Gardens Adventure Park
marks its 70th anniversary in
2006 and the park will celebrate
by paying tribute to its rich and
storied past with many special
activities. New shows and events
will be unveiled and the park will
introduce the all-new Platinum
Passport. Cypress Gardens will
also break ground for the Starlin-
er, another piece of amusement
park history, which will get a new
lease on life at the park in 2007.
On January 2, 1936, Cypress
Gardens opened for business
after much hard work by
founders Dick and Julie Pope. At
times, in the four years preceding
the opening, it seemed as if the
Popes' dream wouldn't see
fruition, but perseverance and
sacrifice ensured the vision of
Dick Pope would see the light of
day. That same dedication turned
the Gardens into the first major
Central Florida attraction within a
few short years and created tradi-
tions that will forever be associat-
ed with the park.
While most of the treasured
traditions are still alive today at
the park, the 70th anniversary
will feature special events honor-
ing the high points of the park's
history, starting this November
with the return of the world-
famous pyramid to the water ski
show. The park will also bring
back the Cypress Gardens water
ski school, teaching 70 young-
sters the basics of water skiing
each week. More water fun
graces the park as the beautifully
refurbished paddle boat, Cypress
Belle, sets sail for daytime sight-
seeing excursions and nightly
dinner cruises. The Cypress Cove
Ferry Line will start transporting
passengers between the north
and south ends of the park this
month as well.
Late in November, Wings of
Wonder will become home to
beautiful new residents when
more than 2,000 exotic butterflies
are added to the park's collection.
And tradition abounds with the
return of the park's "Color Me
Christmas" poinsettia festival as a
part of "Christmas Wonderland,"
beginning November 18.
A great season of all-star con-


certs kicks off in January, with
eight stellar shows scheduled for
that month alone! The line-up for
the year includes the "Legends"
Tour featuring Bill Anderson,
Jimmy Dickens and George
"Goober" Lindsey; the Oak Ridge
Boys; Frank Sinatra Jr; Don
Williams and Bobby Bare; An
Evening with the Grand Ole
Opry; The Temptations; The Let-
terman; Ronnie Milsap; Blake
Shelton; Percy Sledge and various
orchestra performances such as
Cab Calloway and Glenn Miller.
Country legends Merle Haggard
and George Jones will also light
up the Star Haven Amphitheater
later this year. Shows are being
added to the line-up daily and an
updated concert listing can be
found at
www.cypressgardens.com.Cypre
ss Gardens features a number of
dazzling daily shows as part of
the park's entertainment and the
line-up gets a new look in 2006.
"Shake, Rattle & Roll" dances its
way onstage in January, recalling
the nostalgic feel of the 50's, with
numbers like "Rock Around the
Clock," "Hand Jivin'" and the title
song "Shake, Rattle & Roll"
amongst the numbers per-
formed. Look for plenty of poo-
dle skirts and leather jackets in
this show.
The first of the new events for
the year debuts in February, with
"Beaus and Arrows," a four-day
"wedding-vow renewal" festival,
complete with cake and a recep-
tion each day. Love takes aim at
the park on a most appropriate
holiday, as "Beaus and Arrows"
runs Feb. 1.0 thru Feb. 14.
"Blooms and Blossoms," a
flower and garden extravaganza,
takes root at the park February 17
and runs through April 2. Also
returning in the month of Febru-
ary, as a nod to the park's history,
are the Botanical Garden cruises.
First introduced in 1938, these
boat tours of the gardens were a
staple for many years and were a
delightful venue to showcase the
park's natural splendor.
Excitement is in the air over
the much-anticipated return of
the Junior Belle program, which
allows little girls to delight in
dressing up in pint-sized versions
of the big hoop skirts and pan-
taloons worn by the Southern
Belles of Cypress Gardens. Let the
fairy tales begin in March, when


the baby belle dresses will be
available.
Splash Island will enjoy its first
full .season in 2006, complete
with a Grand Opening bash. The
Grand Opening party will be
March 2, with the water park
reopening to the public on March
3, complete with Kowabunga
Bay wave pool, Polynesian
Adventure water-play area, Par-
adise River and the Tonga Tubes
and Voodoo Plunge slide com-
plexes.
Another new event, "Taste of
the South," will open April 14
with six weekends of favorite
Southern flavors and other food
fun. Look for "Southern Fried,"
"Grillin' & Chillin'" and "That's
Smokin"' themed weekends,
among others, as the event runs
through May 21. Another special
event is being planned for April;
the opening of the Pope Memori-
al Museum. This collection of
memorabilia will honor the
Popes and their commitment to
excellence, not only in Cypress
Gardens, but Florida's tourism
history as a whole.
Memorial Day weekend will
usher in a brand-new 3-D laser
and fireworks show, "Night
Magic." Spectacular lasers will
dance across the sky over Lake
Eloise, punctuated by brilliant
bursts of fireworks. The program
will be set to a medley of music
meant to stir the soul.
"Celebrate America" opens
June 23 with shows, a parade
and a special patriotic 3-D laser
and fireworks show. This red,
white and blue tribute to America
will invoke a patriotic spirit in
park-goers through July 30th.
And over the Fourth of July holi-
day, the water ski pyramid will be


recreated in larger-than-life fash-
ion, as Cypress Gardens' skiers
attempt the largest water ski pyra-
mid in the world. Guinness World
Records has been contacted to
be on hand to record this spec-
tacular feat.
"Kidzpalooza" takes over
Cypress Gardens in August and
September, with great kid's
shows, cartoon characters and
exciting arts & craft projects. Also
look for the park's own show,
"Gunk'd," to hit the stage full of
new super-sloppy challenges.
Face your fears in October with
an expanded "Phobia." The
park's scare fest will include a
brand-new haunted house, a
journey into the unknown on the
Terror Train and all-new "Scare
Zones."
"Mum's" the word as one of
the park's most popular flower
shows, "Mums Up," graces the
park once again in November of
2006. The festival first debuted in
1984, featuring simple cascades
of the colorful flowers. Over the
years, the festival grew to include
different arches, topiaries and
other forms, making it the largest
mum festival of its kind in North
America. This year's event is
included as a tribute to the park's
history during the 70th anniver-
sary celebration.
Simple pleasures will be the
focus when Cypress Gardens
presents "An Old-Fashioned
Christmas," starting in Novem-
ber. The park will be a haven
from the hustle and bustle of the
season, with all the sights,
sounds and scents of Christmas
past. The "Color Me Christmas"
poinsettia festival will also land-
scape the park during the holiday
season.
