City continues negotiations


Manager candidate
visits City Hall

By Cindy Monk
City Manager candidate Robert
L. Brady made a visit to Frostproof
City Hall, Saturday, Jan. 14, 2006
to attend a Special Meeting held to
negotiate his contract with the
City of Frostproof Council mem-
bers.
The meeting was called to
order at 10:36 a.m. with all mem-
bers present except for Vice-
Mayor Mike Denby.
Mr. Brady's first request to
changes in the employment


agreement was in the event of his
death he would like it stated in the
contract that his retirement and
accrued benefits be paid to his
spouse and not to his estate,
unless there isn't a surviving
spouse. The council and the city
attorney (Brian Haas) agreed to
the change.
Mr. Brady then requested that
a retirement account be estab-
lished as a passport savings
account at Citizens Bank since he
is 59 years old and did not plan on
working more than ten more
years. City Finance Director Bar-
bara Smith interjected saying she
didn't think a passport account


would be the way to go due to tax
issues. Council member Kay
Hutzelman said she thought the
council needed to hold off on a
decision as to what type of
account would need to be put in
place.
The next topic to be discussed
was a change in the moving
expenses, the city was offering up
to $4,500 to relocate. Mr. Brady
said he wasn't sure of the actual
cost but wanted to know if he
would be held to that figure since
he now resides in a five bedroom
home in Rincon, Ga. He went on
to say he would be getting three
estimates as early as Monday

Rotary WGD full of


The Frostproof Rotary Club
and the Frostproof Rotary Chari-
table Foundation will continue
the tradition on Saturday
evening, Feb. 18, 2006, when
they hold their 23rd Wild Game
Dinner. The Wild Game Dinner
has been an annual event in
Frostproof since 1982, except
for last year, when many Rotari-
ans were too busy repairing hur-
ricane damage at homes and
businesses to tackle the many
details required to put on a Wild
Game Dinner.
This year's Wild Game Din-
ner will be held at Friendship
Park at the Depot, one block
east of Scenic Highway on Wall
Street. For many years, the Wild
Game Dinner has been held at


Hopson's Ranch. The three hur-
ricanes in 2004 reeked havoc on
the electrical utilities that had
been specially set up at Hop-
son's Ranch for the Wild Game
Dinner, and would have
required a major investment to
repair. The Rotarians felt that the
community would be better
served if that money were used
on local educational and chari-
table projects.
This will also be the first Wild
Game Dinner in Frostproof
Rotary history that will be alco-
hol-free. Wild Game Dinner
chairman Byron Matteson
explained. "Frostproof Rotari-
ans have been talking about
eliminating alcohol from the
Wild Game Dinner for several


afternoon. Mayor Damon Nichol-
son and the council felt if it would
take another $1,000 or $1,500
they were agreeable to pay the
difference if needed.
Mr. Brady asked if he could be
allowed to have the same liability
coverage as the council had. This
request would be granted. He
then asked to be included in the
proofing process of the inserted
contractual changes. This also
received a positive response.
Mr. Brady then began salary
negotiations asking to be hired at
$80,000 instead of the base salary

Warriors defeat rival


Royals in overtime


Junior Guard Juan Alvarez led
the Warriors to an overtime victo-
ry against conference rivals
Warner Southern College (9-12).
Alvarez had a team high 17
points with 5 rebounds and 1
block. The Warriors improve
their record to 3-15 for the sea-
son and 1-0 in conference play.
The Warriors came out strong
in the first half, scoring the first
three points of the game off a
jump shot and free throw by
Sophomore Forward Jose Davila.
However, Webber fell silent for
the next 5 minutes as Warner
answered by scoring 13 unan-
swered points. With 8 minutes
left in the first half, Webber
pulled with 1 point, regained the
lead with 7 minutes remaining,
and lost it again on the next
drive. Although Warner had the
lead for the majority of the first
half, Webber would not be
counted out as they ended the
half on top 29-27.
The second half\\ as equally
as exciting as the first, as both
teams fought hard and tried to
secure a conference victory. Nei-
ther team had a lead of more
than 5 points in the entire half.
With 38.7 seconds left in the
game, Warrior Guard Davila


went to the foul line to tie the
game 58-58. Warner drove back
down the court and Junior For-
ward Tomandie Alexander came
up with a big rebound with 3.8
seconds left and just enough
time for the Warriors to call a
quick time-out. This allowed the
Warriors hold off the Royals and
take the game into overtime.
Guard Juan Alvarez made a 3-
pointer to start OT and put the
Warriors on top. Warner Center
Micah McCoy answered by mak-
ing two free throws and pulled
the Royals to within 1 point.
Alvarez came through for the
Warriors again with 5.9 seconds
left as he blocked a shot by Junior
Guard Todd Dambach. Warrior
Forward Jose Davila came up
with the rebound and a foul.
Davila was 1-for-I at the line to
put the Warriors ahead 64-62 and
lead them to their first conference'
victory on the season.
Also contributing for the War-
riors was Senior Center Jared
Pena vilth 11 points, 8 rebounds
and 3 steals Sophomore For-
ward Jose Davila had 9 points
and 5 rebounds, while Freshman

rebounds.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or totry
to control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrali-

Celebrate Banana Church Directory


George Blair Day


He's a photographer, patent-
owner, real estate developer and
a world famous, record-holding
water skier. Now Banana
George Blair will add another
title to his distinguished list;
Mayor of Cypress Gardens
Adventure Park. Join us as we
honor George for his 91st birth-
day on Jan. 21 at 11 a.m. in the
ski show stadium.
At age 40, many folks are
looking forward to retirement
and relaxation, but not George
Blair. It was only then that he
picked up water skiing as the
hobby that turned into a profes-
sion leading to Guinness World
records, including oldest bare-
foot water skier. Add to that his.
penchant for the color yellow
and Chiquita bananas and you
have Banana George Blair, a
name that is recognized around
the world.
Many of his days were spent
entertaining thousands at "the
water ski capital of the world" in
his trademark yellow wetsuit,
both bare footing and on his
hydrofoils. He is best remem-
bered in recent history for joyful-
ly.exclaiming "This is the best
day of my life!" at the grand
opening ceremony when
Cypress Gardens reopened in
December of 2004.
In honor of his history and
relationship with the park,
Banana George will be declared
the Mavoi of Cypress Gardens,
just in time for his 91st birthday.
He'll arrive at the park in grand
manner, flying in on a yellow
Piper Cub float plane and land-
ing just in time for the start of the
II am ceremony. After he is
"sworn in" as the Mayor by Pres-
ident, CEO Kent Buescher, he
and his wife will be awarded life-
time passes and a special
reserved parking space decorat-
ed in yellow and marked by a
permanent banana-shaped sign.
Then the park will celebrate his
birthday in style with a cake and
giant birthday card and every-
one will be. treated to one of his
famous performances during
the ski show.
Guests are encourages to
stop by Cypress Gardens next
week and sign the giant birthday
card, located at the ski show sta-
dium. And make sure to wear
yellow when you come out to
enjoy the celebration!
Banana George Blair Day is
part of the 70th anniversary cele-
bration and joins 39 exciting
rides, spectacular daily shows,
arid Jubilee Junction, a pictur-
esque village where food and
shopping take an entertaining


old-fashioned twist. Come face-
to-face with more than 150 ani-
mals 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
wonder at the world-famous ski'
show. It's adventure for all,ages!.
The park is located in Winter
Haven; Florida two miles west of
SR 27 on Cypress Gardens
Boulevard.
Group rates are available for
church, school, corporate and
any group with 15 or more peo-
ple. Ask about our new Group
Super Saver rate! For more infor-
mation, contact Group Sales at
