Thousands attend Annual Parade


'City sidewalks, busy side-
walks dressed in holiday style'
was the case on Saturday, Dec. 3
as Frostproof celebrated 'Christ-
mas Around Town.'
The day began at Futral's
Foodway when the rooster
crowed at 7 a.m. and their
Farmer's Market opened. By 11
a.m., the day was in full swing.
Santa was posing for pictures
with children of all ages as shop-
pers enjoyed music while sam-
pling Foodway's holiday selec-
tions. Businesses around town
welcomed the community as


they traveled from business to
business to participate in the
'Christmas Around Town' prize
drawing. By 10 a.m., as balloons
donated by Futral's Foodway
were being placed by the doors
of participating businesses, one
business reported that eight par-
ticipants in the map contest had
already dropped by, becoming
aware of the products that they
sell. Lowell Mathews of Mathews
Auto Supply explained what a
great idea 'Christmas Around
Town' was and he was hopeful
that it would expand next year


into weeklong event.
Sandy Sackett, Frostproof's
Woman of the Year and the Co-
Chair of this year's Relay for Life
for the American Cancer Society,
was excited that during the craft
show at Friendship Park, she was
able to pass out over thirty flyers
about this year's Relay. All who
attend enjoyed the music provid-
ed by Bee See Sound. At 2 p.m.,
the music moved to Scenic High-
way in front of Frostproof Realty
and Brent Walker and Mr.. Web-

Shafer resigns



as WIU Head



Football Coach


Bill Heath, Director of Ath-
letics at Webber International
University, has announced that
Head Football Coach Rod
Shafer has resigned, effective
Dec. 15, 2005. Coach Shafer
has directed the Warriors foot-
ball program since its inception
four years ago. WIU played as a
club team during their first year
and have since participated at
the intercollegiate level as a
member of the National Asso-
ciation of Intercollegiate Athlet-
ics for the past three years.
Coach Shafer released this
statement: "We have over-
come an amazing amount of
hurdles in building this pro-
gram. Webber is a unique
place and is a family. My leav-
ing has nothing to do with any-
thing that Webber has done or


hasn't done. I will always sup-
port Webber and I have noth-
ing but good things to say
about our college and our ath-
letic programs, and I will con-
tinue to be WIU's biggest sup-
porter in the Lake Wales
community."
Shafer also added that "leav-
ing Lake Wales and coming to
Webber was the hardest deci-
sion I ever had to make and
leaving Webber to go back is
just as hard. I would love to
coach for the rest of my career
here at Webber, but my main
reason for leaving is my son.
Our games are played on Satur-
day (and) I was unable to

ley's swim meets these past

Rotary to host benefit opera


German opera star
and Italian pianist to
perform at City Hall
The Frostproof Rotary Club
recently announced plans to
hold "An Evening of Opera" to
benefit the restoration of the old
high school auditorium. Italian
pianist Francesco Attesti will
accompany German Opera
Soprano Annika Kaschenz for an
evening of entertainment on
Thursday, Jan. 19, 2006 at 7 p.m.
in old high school auditorium at
Frostproof City Hall.
Annika Kashenz is "among
the most talented classically-
trained voices of Europe's young
generation." Critics have praised
her for her "expressive, warm,
and nevertheless flexible voice."
Others have said that "it was not
only the beautiful voice that gath-
ered the attention of the audi-


ence but more importantly it was
Annika's personality and creative
power" which made for an
unforgettable event.
Francesco, who was born in
Cortona in the heart of Italy's Tus-
cany region, is an "extraordinary
professional who greatly com-
bines musicality and enormous
talent, all of which makes him
belong to the elite of the young
Italian concertists." He has per-
formed as a soloist and with
orchestras in many of the grand
concert halls of Europe. The pub-
lic and critics alike have "unani-
mously acclaimed him as a great
concert performer, a refined and
brilliant interpreter of the early
music and romantic repertoire."
Francesco and Annika gave
their first concert as a Duo in May
2001 .and have delighted audi-
ences throughout Europe and
the United States with their per-
fected interpretations and plan-
ning. In the past two years, they


have performed individually or
together in Italy Denmark, and
New England, and have booked
engagements for 2006 in Austria,
Switzerland, England, Germany,
Czech Republic, New York, and
Florida. The concert will include
some of the most famous arias
by composers like G. Verdi, G.
Puccini, V Bellini, G. Donizetti,
and W. A. Mozart as well.as some
piano solo work.
Frostproof Rotarians are very
fortunate to be bringing this tal-
ent to Frostproof. Their January
and February Florida tour will
begin in Frostproof and be fol-
lowed by performances in much
larger cities including Lake City,
Port Charlotte, Daytona, Long-
boat, and Sanibel. Frostproof
Rotary Club President Bea Reifeis
explained how the performance
came about. "Francesco is a

were things that I could never
replace."
"Coach Shafer has done an
unbelievable job of building our
football program into a national
contender in four short years,"
said A.D. Bill Heath, "I have been
impressed with the quality stu-
dent-athletes he has brought into


our Webber family." Heath also
added: 'I understand exactly
where coach Shafer is coming
from about his children and want-
ing to spend valuable and quality
time with them and his wonderful
wife, Sue. College coaching is a
tough profession and does
require an immense amount of
time away from your family and I
appreciate Rod's concern about
that. The athletic staff and I wish
him the greatest success at Lake

our campus."

FHS Student News


Attention FMSHS
parents/guardians:
As the end of the first semester
rapidly approaches, I am writing
to inform you of some important
scheduling changes related to
upcoming semester exams and
the last three days of the semes-
ter.
At the recent Principal's meet-
ing it was approved for Frostproof
Middle/Senior High School stu-
dents to be released early from
school at 12 noon following
morning semester exams and
lunch on Dec. 14, 15, and 16,
2005. The early release will pro-
vide teachers with additional time
on these afternoons for tutoring
students, administering make up
work or tests, and the grading of
exams toward closing out the first
semester of this school year.
Bus transportation will be pro-
vided for those students who
meet district criteria and are regu-
larly transported by bus. All other
students should make the appro-
priate arrangements for trans-
portation home on these days.
In order to ensure proper
supervision, all students are
expected to leave campus no
later than 12:20 p.m. on these
days unless they have made prior
arrangements and will be under
the direct supervision of a
teacher, coach or administrator.
Please note that this early
release of students applies only to
FMSHS students. Therefore ele-
mentary school students are not
affected in any way by this sched-
ule change and will be released
from their school at their usual
times.
Thank you in advance for
making the necessary arrange-
ments for the early release of stu-
dents. Should you have addition-
al questions, please contact the
main office at635-7809. Best
wishes for an enjoyable holiday
season!
Sincerely,
Stephen White

FHS Club seeks
military addresses
The Frostproof High School


Interact Club needs help in
obtaining names and addresses
of military personnel who are for-
mer students of Frostproof High
School and/or the surrounding
area. Members of the Interact
Club are participating in a special
project to send Christmas cards
and letters to our military people
both stateside and abroad. Real-
izing that many of our country's
military people do not often
receive mail, we want to let them
know how much we appreciate
them and their service to our
country.
The Interact Club is newly
formed at FHS and is sponsored
by the Frostproof Rotary Club.
We practice the motto, "Service
Above Self" and will participate
in several service projects in our
community throughout the
school year. The Club officers are
Jay Gildin, President; Alexa
Corso, Vice-President; Kati Hutto,
Secretary; and Linzy Browne,
Treasurer. Our newly elected
Board of Directors includes Ninfa
Rodriguez, Amanda Blocker,
Meghan Bell, and Heather Part-
ington. We will have several proj-
ect managers as we start each
project. Our first project man-
agers are Esmeralda Gauzin and
Santos Gonzalez.
The Interact Club members
are excited about the formation
of their new club at FHS and serv-
ing their community.
We appreciate your help in
providing names and addresses
of our military personnel. Please
phone this information to Mrs.
Corso or Mrs. Michaelis at 635-
7809 (Frostproof High School).

2006 Project
Graduation
Project Graduation for the
Class of 2006 needs Senior Par-
ents to help organize and give this
year's graduates a wonderful cel-
ebration in May. In case you don't
know, Project Graduation sends
the graduating class off in style. It
usually involves bussing me class
to a destination, like Wonder-
Works or Cypress Gardens. They
spend all Graduation Night there,
in a fun but safe environment.
Most years, there are prizes of all
kinds given to the seniors and
sometimes, even a breakfast
when they return early the next
morning. This event is not a
school-sponsored function, so it's
up to parents and other people
.from the Frostproof community
to get things going. Ernie Pittman,
FMSHS teacher and parent of a
2005 graduate, served as last
years school contact. He and
some of last year's Project Gradu-
ation committee members
would be glad to meet with par-
ents of this year's seniors before
school gets out for Christmas
Holidays Dec. 16. For more infor-
mation please contact Ernie
Pittman at 635-7809 ext. 288 or
email ernie.pittman@polk-fl.net.
This year's seniors deserve a
great Project Graduation and
time is slipping away quickly.
Please step up and volunteer to
serve on the Class of 2006 Project
Graduation Committee.


When Cathy Cranford Futral,
professor, Art Department,
South Florida Community Col-
lege, wanted to design and illus-
trate a book of art lessons, she
turned to her daughter, Sarah.
The product of their five-
month collaboration, "Art
Lessons Notebook: 101 Lessons,
Elementary to Adult," is now
complete. The Futrals hope it
will find its way to a publisher
sometime next year.
As its title indicates, "Art
Lessons Notebook" has been
compiled in a three-ring binder.
Color-coded chapters focus on
drawing, design, watercolor,
painting, crafts, and sculpture.
Individual lessons explain every-
thing from basic materials, prin-
ciples of design and composi-
tion, and the color wheel to
drawing portraits, painting
seascapes, making a clay coil
pot, and weaving baskets.
Each simple lesson has
approximately three to six steps.
The level of difficulty and time
invested depends entirely on the
student. For example, the first
lesson, on using lines for design,
might take a 6-year-old 10 min-
utes to draw a few basic pat-
terns, while an older student,
with a more mature eye, could
easily spend 45 minutes toying
with intricate designs.
Futral said the inspiration for
the book goes back 30 years. As
a beginning teacher, she benefit-
ed from an experienced art
teacher's handwritten lessons.
"I'm often asked to do art les-
sons for all ages," Futral said. "I

thought the book would be a
good resource for beginning art
teachers or for anyone who
wants to teach children about
art. I wanted it to be a notebook
so that pages could be copied or
added to it."


From March through May,
Futral began entering her lessons
into her computer. In May, she
approached -Sarah about illus-
trating and designing the book.
With a talent for drawing and an
interest in graphic design, Sarah

had just graduated from Walker
Memorial Academy in Avon Park
and was set to begin classes at
SFCC in the fall. The project con-
sumed her summer.
For the novice author and the
novice designer, it turned out to
be a learning experience. Some-
times, the lesson was compro-
mise.
"It was frustrating. We are
both artists, and we disagreed,"
said Sarah Futral. "Because she
is my mom, I could tell her what
I thought needed to be done.
She didn't always agree with
me."
In one 18-hour working ses-
sion, the mother and daughter
created the samples of the art
projects that are used as the
book's illustrations. Sarah then
took photos of the projects and
scanned them into her comput-
er. She designed the book in
Microsoft Word.
Other contributors pitched in
as well. Sample artwork was
provided by Futral's son, James,
her former art student, Kim
Boyd, and John Rodriguez. The
book was edited by Patricia Kin-
saul Lamb, the newly elected
president of the Florida Art Asso-
ciation.
The first self-published copies
came back in early October.
Since then, Futral has shared
them with Polk County art teach-
ers and in a seminar at the High-
lands Art League. In January, she
will give art lessons on Thursday
evenings at the Frostproof Art
League.

Coalition working on lake issues


By Pete Gawda
OKEECHOBEE The quarterly
meeting of the County Coalition for
Responsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, the St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee Estuaries and
Lake Worth Lagoon held Thursday
at the Okeechobee County Civic
Center resulted in both heat and
light being shed on ecological
problems.
There was talk of litigation
against water managers as well as
discussions of positive steps being
taken being taken to clean up the
lake.
The organization is made up of
county commissioners from Okee-
chobee, St. Lucie, Martin, Lee Palm
Beach, Hendry, Glades; Highlands
and Osceola counties.
"Today, I can tell you the St.
Lucie Estuary is in the worst condi-
tion it has ever been." asserted
Kevin Henderson of the St. Lucie
River Initiative.
He went on say that the current
condition is "not just a shame, it is
a horror" and is causing significant
economic damage.
"What is going to be done
about it?" he asked the coalition
members
"It's criminal negligence; a
number of people need to be
indicted for this," charged Wayne
Nelson, executive director of Fish-
ermen against the Destruction of
the Environment. "The reason the
lake is dying is that some bureau-
crat did not have courage to make
a decision."
He claimed that the U. S. Army


Corps of Engineer (COE) had the
authority to modify their lake regu-
lation schedule to avoid the current
situation but did not do so.
Mark Perry of the Florida
Oceanographic Society said the
water quality was the worst it has
been since 1957. He noted that
even though there is an abundance
of water now he predicated a
drought and then people would be
asking where the water went.
"Enough is enough," he said.
He called for revision of the
water supply/environmental
(WS/E) the schedule used to
regulate Lake Okeechobee.
Donna Stoter of Glades County,
referring to the pending lawsuit
facing water managers, noted that
lawyers are the only ones who
come out ahead in such situations.
Paul Gray of the Audubon Soci-
ety predicted that the drawdown of
the lake that was planned in the
spring of 2006 to help submerged
vegetation recover would not be
feasible due to high water. In order
to do that, he said 4 feet of water
would have to be removed in four
months. He said the Audubon
Society recommended that, the
present continuous release be ter-
minated at about 16.25 feet and
Level I pulse releases be used after
that.
Pulse releases mimic normal
rainfall and runoffcycles.
Dr. Gray recommended getting
the lake as low as possible before
the next hurricane season. He said
that 13.5 feet by June 1 was as
good as could be expected.
He noted that one advantage to


the high water is that during this
time South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) can treat
the exotic plant, torpedo grass.
Herb Zebuth of Friends of the
Everglades said high water in the
Everglades is killing tree islands,
which are a critical habitat.
"We're demanding too much of
the lake," he asserted. "We need a
new, lower regulation schedule."
He urged storing water some-
where other than Lake Okee-
chobee.
Mr. Zebuth urged litigation say-
ing: "If you are going to make
progress you have to sue some-
body. Litigation works."
Richard Earp, an engineer with
Osceola County, injected a positive
note by saying that Osceola County
wants to be part of the solution. He
noted that Osceola County had
enacted a tax to buy sensitive land
for environmental purposes and
suggested combining these funds
with funds from other sources for
environmental projects.
"We support the district
(SFWMD) and the Corps (COE),"
he added.
Martin County Commissioner
Sarah Heard told the group that
there was no alternative but to take
legal action against water man-
agers.
"We have to have compliance,
we have to have clean water, we
have to obey our laws," she said.
"I would like to see a roadmap
to fix the problem," was the com-
ment of Glades County Commis-
sioner Alvin Ward.
He said his pet project was


cleaning up Lake .Okeechobee
inside the dike. He said that not one
penny of the governor's recently
announced $4 million program for
restoration of the lake went to
clean up the inside of the lake. He
suggested that during times of
drought, backhoes be brought out
onto the lakebed to load up nutri-
ent-laden sediment and haul it off.
He advocated that the group's
first priority be cleaning up inside
the lake, and then working for
more water storage.
Commissioner Ward urged the
coalition to create a plan that
would cause all counties to suffer.
He asked that an agreement be
reached on steps to be taken and a
price tag placed on those steps. He
then advocated using the taxes col-
lected by SFWMD to finance the
project.
The commissioners said that
farmers are not the total cause of
the problem but that the increase
in population has also been a con-
tributing factor.
Okeechobee County Commis-
sioner Clif Betts urged SFWMD and
COE to push up the schedule on
lake projects.
Conditions in Lee County have
gone from bad to worse according
to Lee County Commissioner Ray
Judah. Trying to lower the lake by
sending water through the
Caloosahatchee River has had a
tremendous negative impact on
fishing, tourism and real estate, he
claimed. The commissioner said
his county had allocated $25,000
for legal options to address the
problem.
