reports that Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2006
is the last day business owners can
make late payments on their delin-
quent occupational licenses before
incurring substantial penalties.
If the billboards around the
county are any indication of how
serious Tax Collector Joe Tedder
has become, businesses will want
to comply sooner than later.
Occupational licenses are
required and must be renewed
annually for all businesses operat-
ing in Polk County. Fees range from
$30 to $300. However, the tax peri-
od for timely.payment of the 2005-
06 license ended on Sept. 30, 2005,
causing an-additional 25% penalty
plus a $5 collection cost for late
payments made in February.
As of Feb. 28, delinquent busi-
ness accounts will be subject to a
100% penalty, additional collection
costs and attorneys fees. Moreover,

Wild Game Dinner format changes
By Cindy Monk
The Frostproof Rotary Club's
23rd Annual Wild Game Dinner,
held Feb 18, revealed- some
,major changes from previous
events. This year the dinner \vas
moved to downtown at Friend-
ship Park. No alcoholic bever-
ages were served and ticket
sales offered student and child
rates in addition to the adult || I
priced tickets. The Frostprool
Rotary also changed the serving p t
concept. Instead of having a
large tent and long lines of peo-
ple waiting to be served, there
were approximately ten
canopied tents which served the
usual favorites (swamp cab-
bage, venison pilaf, gator tail,
wild turkey, fried cornbread, Leon Respress receives a pocket knife from Rotarian

Due to the hurricanes in Fall

A lot of thought and considera-

was several other events

Church introduces new pastors
Over the past.40 years, First
Assembly of'.Frostproof has
changed names, buildings and
pastors, but a few things have
always remained constant: the
spirit, and the people.
Recently the church went
through another transition
when they hired Wayne.and
Jennifer Lee as their new pas-
tors. Wayne and Jennifer both
come from different areas of
the country. Wayne is from
West Palm Beach, and Jennifer
is from Carbon Hill, Ala. While
Wayne was a youth pastor at a
local church in Winfield, Ala.,
they met, fell in love and were
After positions in many
churches as youth, music, and
associate pastors they were
called by Dr. Mark Rutland, the
president of Southeastern Uni-
versity in Lakeland, to come
serve as directors of all student
worship on campus and all
touring teams from the school.
Along with their three chil-
dren Nick 13, Jonna 8 and
Howie 5, they began a tenure
which they thought would be
In a recent trip to First
Assembly's Church on the
Ridge, where they were filling
in to preach, both Wayne and
Jennifer felt a call of God to
transition one more time..
On Jan. 15, they accepted
the positions as senior pastors
at First Assembly's Church on
"We believe that God has
everything under control and
allows everything to happen for
a reason. This church is clearly
a beacon of hope and love for
this community and through
excellent leadership in the past
is poised to touch the heart not
only of Frostproof but of all
Central Florida," said Wayne.
Wayne and Jennifer ask that
community members come
and visit the fresh spiritual
renewal that is taking place at
Church on the Ridge.
"Everyone is accepted and
everyone is welcomed," Jen-
nifer said, "We like to think of it
as our family reaching yours."
The new pastors have many
great things planned for this
year and will be reaching out
to the community any way
possible. For information visit
them at their website
there you'll be able to keep up
with all the events they have
around the county" stated Tedder.
"Since the 2004 occupational
tax code revisions, we have made
a consistent effort to inform Polk
County business owners of those
changes and their responsibility to
voluntarily comply under the
law", he added.
The poster-size billboards are
prominently-located around the
county, and feature 'Polkie, The Tax
Dog', a pug dog who reminds view-
ers, "If you are doing your business
in Polk County, you need a license."
Tedder's office has also used
their internet site, www.PolkTax-
es.com and PGTV, the Polk Gov-
ernment television channel to
carry the message as well.
Those who have yet to renew
their county occupational license,
and who have not received a delin-
quent notice, or those businesses
that are operating in Polk County
without benefit of a county occupa-
tional license should contact the
Polk County Tax Collector's office
via email before February 28 at Eco-
om or telephone (863) 534-4731.
At a recent reception held a warm welcome to Frost-
Friday, Feb. 10 in the confer- proofs' newly appointed City
ence room of City Hall, Interim Manager Robert Brady.

said so long to several well would be available to Mr. Brady

Debra Richards Lewis presented Carl R. Cheatham with
a plaque thanking him for his support during the 2005
Flood problems. Debra represented the Southeast Polk
Citizens for Lake Management Committee.
Robert Brady was sworn in
as Frostproof City Manager at the
Feb. 20 regular city council meet-
After the swearing-in, the
council got right to business,
considering ordinances. The first
one read was an ordinance for
Silver Hill Cemetery regarding
the coping and gravel. Next was
the second reading of an..ordi-
nance for the annexation of
Coachlight Villa, located on the
south side of Lake Reedy.
The third ordinance consid-
ered was for the annexation of
five lakes: Lake Ida, Biscuit Lake,
Lake Moody, Lake Silver and
Hickory Lake. Former Interim
City Manager Carl Cheatham
was present to represent the
Urban Core Development
Group. This ordinance was
approved by the council. Coun-
cilmember Larry Sullivan
abstained from voting, citing a
conflict of interest.
The council scheduled a spe-
cial workshop on Wednesday,
March 1 at 3 p.m. to discuss pos-
sible changes to the water ordi-
nance. This was once again
brought to the council's atten-
tion by local property owner and
landlord. Carol Love vocalized
the unfairness she felt for the
responsibility of paying delifn
quent water bills for tenants
who have moved out She point-
ed out that the property owner is
not the person who signs for the

All 'fats' are not created equal
Do you read the food labels? I
find it interesting that different peo-
ple read different parts of the
labels. Some are concerned with
fat content, others with carbohy-
drates or calories.
In each case, there's more to it
than just a number. And now the
labels are adding another category
to the "fat" content.
Labels may give total fat, but not
all fats are bad for you. According
to the United States Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), fat is a major
source of energy for the body and
aids in the absorption of vitamins
A, D, E, and K. When eaten in mod-
eration, fat is important for proper.

nance of good health. Fats are an
especially important source of.
calories and nutrients for infants
and toddlers, who have the highest
energy needs per unit of body
weight of any age group.
When consumed with carbohy-
drates, fats can help stabilize blood
sugar levels, which is important for
energy and for overall health.
All fats are not the same. Some
fats, like olive oil, can be good.for
you. Olive oil helps promote your
body's, production of high density
lipoproteins (HDLs) otherwise
known as the "good cholesterol"
with Katrina Elsken
which helps your body rid itself of
low density lipoproteins (LDLs).
Saturated fats (such as the fat in
butter) and trans fats promote the
production of LDLs, which clog the
Trans fats may start out as
"good" fats, but they are chemically
altered so they will have a longer
shelf life. Trans fats are usually made
when hydrogen is added to veg-
etable oil during processing. If you
see the words "partially hydrogenat-
ed" you are dealing with trans fat.
Until recently, trans fats could
be found in so many products in
the American supermarket that it
was difficult to find cookies, breads
or snack foods without it.
Under a Food and Drug Admin-
istration (FDA) rule that went into
effect in January, food labels must

Pursuing its mission to ensure
high quality water for Florida's
growing communities while pro-
tecting the environment, the
South Florida Water Management
District has initiated the applica-
tion process for its FY 2006-2007
WaterSIP Grant program.
For the current year, WaterSIP,
which stands for Water Savings
Incentive Program, will distribute
up to $1 million District-wide for
projects that conserve a measura-
ble amount of water. To date,
WaterSIP has conserved more
than 1.4 billion gallons a day. This
annual funding program provides
matching funds up to $50,000 to
water providers or community
organizations for installing water-
saving technology such as low-
flow plumbing fixtures, rain, sen-
sors, fire hydrant flushing devices,.
and other water saving projects.
The District has worked with
local government as well as pri-
vate organizations and not-for-
profit agencies to promote various
conservation projects. On the west
coast, the City of Sanibel worked
with hotels and resorts on the
island to retrofit sprinkler systems
to use recycled water for irrigation.

Aware that the public is paying
more attention to trans fats, and will
soon be able to find trans fat infor-
mation on the food labels, manu-
facturers are cutting back on trans
fat use or eliminating it completely.
Some companies even started
adding this information to labels
before it became mandatory, happy
to proclaim their foods "contain'no
.trans fats!" It's important to remem-
ber that trans fat is not the only thing
to consider on the label. If the man-
ufacturer added more saturated fat
to compensate for eliminating trans
fats, the product still may be a poor
food choice for those concerned
about cholesterol levels.
For more on trans fat, see the

Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any prescrip-

act badly with foods thatwould oth-
erwise be considered "healthy."
Firework donations still needed
The Frostproof Area Chamber
of Commerce is asking for dona-
tions to fund this year's Fourth of
July fireworks. Due to financial
constraints, the City of Frostproof
is unable to fund the annual fire-
works show. The vendor who has
provided the fireworks for the past
two years is willing to give the
same price as last year. They are
also willing to provide ten percent
more fireworks if the total cost is
paid by March 1,2006..
Ben Hill Griffin, Alico, Inc.,
Gary Whidden Mobile Home
Sales, 'Scarborough Furniture
Company, Frostproof Realty, and
Johnny and Mary Lou Brantley
have already given $2,300
towards the $10,000 cost. Dona-
tions can be made by calling
Jimmy Scarborough at 635-2645
or Jim Harmon at 635-2244.
