Residents voice concerns


By Cindy Monk
The Regular City Council
Meeting held Monday, April 17,
was a packed room since sever-
al items on the agenda brought
a lot of interested local residents
wanting to vocalize their con-
cerns over growth, utility
deposits, as well as water,
sewage and garbage rate
increases.
Joel Jenkins was the first resi-
dent to make a request to the


council to speak regarding the
water and sewage rate increas-
es. Mr. Jenkins had current
water and sewage rates he com-
piled from Ft. Meade, Avon Park
and Lake Wales. According to
the figures he provided, Frost-
proof's present rates were sig-
nificantly higher.
Mrs. Lee Dyer informed the
council that her yard still has
ruts and her driveway has never
been repaired from the four
times the road she lives on was


torn up in order to install the
new sewer system. She also
asked why the rates keep going
up and yet the residents are not
benefiting from the increases.
She was asked by Mayor Nichol-
son if she had ever let the city
know about the state her prop-
erty was left in and said she had
called a few times. She also stat-
ed the engineer company
dumped a pile of dirt in her yard
but didn't assist any further to
see that her grounds were

Citizens Bank opens new branch


Citizens Bank &
Trust recently opened
their 8th office

Citizens Bank & Trust has
opened an office in Auburndale.
The new banking center is
located at 111 Havendale Boule-
vard. The ribbon cutting cere-
mony, held on Wednesday,
March 8, 2006 was well attend-
ed with about 50 60 guests on
hand. Jeff Vandiver, President-
elect of the Auburndale Cham-
ber / Main Street conducted the
ceremony. Other city officials in
attendance were Vice Mayor of
Auburndale, Ronnie Spears,
City Commissioner Richard
Hamann and several other
Auburndale Chamber / Main
Street Board Members. The
sons of Citizens Bank Auburn-
dale office manager Sherry Kel-
ley, Jacob and Luke, actually
performed the honors of the rib-
bon cutting.
"We are expanding into an


area where we feel the needs
and desires of the community fit
our strengths as a bank'." said
P.T. Wilson, .Chairman of the
Board of Citizens Bank & Trust.
"The Auburndale community is
a natural for us as a hometown,
community bank."
Greg Littleton, President of
Citizens Bank and Auburndale
native, knows personally the
niche which his bank can fulfill
in the community. "We have
another Auburndale native,
Sherry Kelley, who will be man-
aging this office who is already
very involved in this communi-
ty. An additional hometown
individual, Commercial Loan
Officer and First Vice President,
Raymond Epperson, will be
housed in this office as well,"
added Mr. Littleton. "Both of
these folks know their way
around the community and
hopefully will be able to make
an impact right away."
Citizens Bank has been busy
improving the location and
updating the structure for their


new office. The site was most
recently occupied by Commer-
cial Carrier's human resource
department. Most of the
improvements have been to the
building itself so the branch
could open. However, Phase II
of the improvements should be
completed by early June. Yet to
be finished include the new
parking area out in front of the
bank, a new drive up ATM, and
an entry to the drive thru from
around the building as well as
additional landscaping. Current-
ly the drive thru can only be
accessed from the Hughes Road
side street. There is also 5,000
square feet of office space avail-
able for lease on the second
floor of the building.
Citizens Bank and Trust is
$290 million in assets and also
serves the communities of
Frostproof, Lake Wales, Indian
Lake Estates, Dundee, Winter
Haven, and Haines City. Orga-
nized in Frostproof in 1920, Citi-

ued to show how much heart

the other teams were 4, 5 or 6A.
They defeated Lake Wales in
their first game this gave them a
chance to face Auburndale again
and show their true determina-
tion. Aft oosing during the sea-
son the C were ready proclaim
the win and they did just that
with a 4-2 win. This win sent
them to the championship game
against powerhouse Bartow.
This was the game they had
worked for all year. At the end of
regulation play the score was tied
8-8. Bartow was already using
their second pitcher as Frost-
proof had already recorded 2

Liz Russel), and a triple (by Katie
Hutto) along with several single

Letters to
the Editor


FP Postal staff
appreciated
As a new resident to Central
Florida (I actually reside in Lake
Wales) I must share my experi-
ence of the Little Post Office with
a huge heart. My best friend of
almost twenty years "Barbara"
has been inviting me to visit her
for two to three years now. She
originally moved to Frostproof
from South Carolina. I had never
heard of Frostproof although I
myself was living in South Florida,
the City of Sunrise. Finally in July
of 2005 I decided to visit. I found
Frostproof darling, a real modern
day Mayberry RFD. I house sat for
my friends while exploring my
surroundings, at that time they
had a P.O. Box in Frostproof and
occasionally I needed to check
their mail. This is the beginning of
my experience with the staff at
the Post Office; the entire staff
was warm, friendly beyond
words knowledgeable, charming,
and downright neighborly.
As a Free-lance Photojournalist
I have traveled much and have
experienced many different peo-
ple and places, yet "Frostproof FL"
stands alone. Those folks at the
Frostproof Post Office should be
knighted ambassadors for the
City!
Jimmie, Sherrie, Mike and
Calvin, although some may have
retired by the time you receive this
letter of appreciation, I was com-
pelled to write it. It's never what a
person say's, it is how they say it
and most noticeable is when it
comes from the heart naturally.
Each visit to the P.O. and there
have been many, the experience
was exactly the same, continually
receiving that warm down-home
neighborly friendliness, each and
every time, also let me not forget
tn mention their sense of humor
too
I just want to say Thank You to
all at the Frostproof Post Office.
So, if ya'll see a beautiful
female photographer with a cam-
era and tripod in hands, capturing
the local landscape feel free to
stop by and say hi.
Lake Wales' newest resident,
Jacqueline Thomas-Wilson

A word of thanks
The Frostproof Relay for Life
Committee would like to thank
everyone who donated, worked
at, and attended this year's 2006
Relay for Life. We hope that a
great time was enjoyed by all!
If you liked what you saw, or
have ideas to make the 2007 Relay
for Life even better please plan to
attend our wrap up meeting on
Friday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the Frost-
proof High School Media Center.
We plan to celebrate this years'
success and begin planning for
next years Relay for Life. Please
call Sandy Sackett, 635-5456 if you
have any questions.
Sincerely,
Frostproof Relay for Life Com-
mittee

Church begins new home study groups


Have you ever wondered

He wants you to know. Last
week at Family Life Church a
new study began with LIFE

This quarter the LIFE Groups

Near," by John Bevere. James


4:8 says it perfectly, "Draw near
to God, and He will draw near to
YOU!"
"Let me encourage you to
come and join us at Family Life
Church, or join in ",jr LIFE
Groups;'.- Pastor Kelly Uaifti
said. "We now have three differ-
ent locations on three different
evenings. You will learn how to
get into God's presence. Get

Seahawks overtake Warriors


The Warriors drop their first of
the three game series to the Sea-
hawks of Northwood University 6-
4. Northwood's Chanse Home
threw a complete game to take the
win. Darren Hardy took the loss for
the Warriors, starting strong with a
3-0 lead, before falling apart in the
fifth. Vinny Calabrese came in for
relief in the six finishing out the
game.
The Warriors started with an
early lead, scoring three runs in the
bottom of the first inning.
The Seahawks started their
offensive attack in the fourth inning
when Sammy Montanez led off the
inning with a double to left-center
field. A wild pitch by Hardy
advanced Montanez to third and a
sacrifice fly to center by Justin Grif-
fin allowed Montanez to score.


Hardy retired the next to batters
with consecutive fly outs to first
and short.
In the sixth, Hardy retired the
first two batters with back-to-back
fly outs to center. However, the
Seahawks rallied to score 3 runs off
2 doubles, an error and a walk.
Adonay Suarez hit a fly ball to cen-
ter, but miscommunication
between Joey Albsmeyer and Chris
Dupree caused both players to
miss the pop-up. Suarez sagely
reached second on the error and
scored on a double by Max Rios
that was misjudged in right by
Ivers. Hardy then issued a walk to
Cory Cooke before giving up a 2
RBI double to Montanez to tie the
score at 4 each. Hardy got Justin
Griffin to fly out to left and end the
inning.


The Seahawks continued to
pound Hardy in the sixth. Mike Far-
rell led off the inning with a high
home run to center field. The next
batter, Chris Johnson, hit a long fly
ball to centerfield, but Dupree was
unable to handle it and allowed
Johnson to reach third safely. Vinny
Calabrese came in for relief and
retired the next batter with a
ground ball to third base. Guiseppe
D'Andrea then singled up the mid-
dle off Calabrese to score Johnson.
Calabrese issued a walk and
allowed another single before retir-
ing the side with a ground ball back
to the pitcher. This capped the
three run offensive rally for the Sea-
hawks. The Warriors tried to put
together a rally of their own, but
were unsuccessful at the plate
once Home settled down.

Air Force Airman 1st Class
David B. Delk has graduated from
basic military training at Lackland
Air Force Base, San Antonio,
Texas.
During the six weeks of train-
ing, the airman studied the Air
Force mission, organization, and
military customs and courtesies;
performed drill and ceremony
marches, and received physical
training, rifle marksmanship, field
training exercises, and special
training in human relations.
In addition, airmen who com-
plete basic training earn credits
toward an associate degree
through the Community College
of the Air Force.
Delk is the son of Ronald Delk
and Teresa Hatfield of Oakwood

2005 graduate of Lake Wales High
School.


The annual TOP GUN World
Championships start in just two
weeks at the Lakeland Airport.
April 26 30 will bring the very
best pilots flying and competing
for over $25,000 in cash and
prizes, and the title of Mr. TOP
GUN.,
Radio Control Scale aircraft of
a quality rarely seen will be
.judged on the minutest detail, and
then flown to perfection by their
pilots. Many of these aircraft are
over seven feet long, and weigh
up to 50 Ilbs. The aircraft on dis-
play and flying throughout the
TOP GUN competition are simply
works of art, and far from what
many think of when the term
model airplane is mentioned.
At TOP GUN flying will start on
Wednesday and run through the
finals on Sunday afternoon. From


WW-I bi-planes to today's mod-
ern fighter jets and commercial
aircraft, just about anything that
has flown in the past eighty years
will be represented. During the
week- spectators will be -able to
take pictures, ask questions and
feel like they are part of the action.
There will be a large number of
airplane hobby related vendors
on site throughout the week
showing their products, and
answering questions as well.
Because everyone gets hungry
and needs to eat, a terrific food
court will be serving all week
long. A big hit at TOP GUN each
year is the midday airshow lasting
about ninety minutes on. Friday,
Saturday and Sunday. All types of
radio controlled aircraft will put
on one of the very best shows you
will see.
