considers new budget

By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
The Frostproof City Council
held a special meeting Aug. 31 to
consider the preliminary budget
for the city.
The regular public hearings
for the final budget will be held
on Monday, Sept. 11 and Mon-
day, Sept. 25 at 5:30 p.m. in the

city council chambers before the
regular City Council Meetings
which follow.
At last week's special meet-
ing, as reported by city finance
director Barbara Smith C.P.A., the
council worked through each
department's budget without sig-
nificant changes, except those of
public works and utilities.

According to Ms. Smith, the
state's review of the city's budget
revealed that the gross adjusted
taxable base had been used,
rather than the gross taxable base,
increasing the overall budget
being $975,000 (in round num-
bers) rather than $948,000 as origi-
nally planned. This resulted in an
additional $26,845 becoming
available with the millage staying

constant at 8.5 mils.
Of the $26,845, $3,800 was
allocated for equipment for the
council chambers, $1,800 more
for the city clerk's pay, $245 to
cover payroll taxes, etc. resulting
from that $1,800 increase, $5,000
more for the hurricane damage
fund and $16,000 more for profes-
sional fees.

with the detour for the morning. They would especially like to thank the sponsors for the boys' cars. Full spon-
sors include: Bob Fannin Plastering of Sebring, Bill Lomaneck & Sons of Frostproof, and Fields-Huston Cadillac
Buick Pontiac GMC Inc. of Lake Wales. Partial sponsors include: Wise Seed Co. Inc., O'Hara Restoration, Frost-
proof Recycling all of Frostproof, and General Engines Co. Inc. of Lake Wales. A big thank you to goes Bagwell
Lumber, Cargil, and Ben Hill Griffin Inc. for their continuing support of the Cub Scouting program throughout the

Your edible landscape

can be containerized

By Dee Dee Dilger Jacobson,
Horticulture Extension Agent
Just between you, me, and
"The Garden Post" I would like to
suggest growing an edible land-
scape in containers. Now I am not
crazy, here me out. What better
way to grow edible herbs, and
vegetables than in pots. It wouid
be low maintenance, wouldn't
take up much space, and who
needs volumes of vegetables any-
way. The whole idea of gardening
is for it to be a labor of love, not
more labor then love. Such small
scale editable landscapes can be
practical as well as ornamental il
properly and imaginatively done.
Containers for your edible gar-
den can be anything you have on
hand. Just keep in mind that the
container needs to be sufficiently

durable and large enough to hold
the fully grown plant or plants.
has adequate drainage and is aes-
thetically pleasing to the eye This
is done by having different con-
tainer heights and utilizing hang-
ing baskets. Don't forget, you can
also use different plant forms
such as upright, sprawling, and
mounding plants to help create
depth and height. Leaf texture
and color will also add depth and
interest. Another idea for your edi-
ble landscape is utilizing themes.
This would include herbs, scent
or texture, or your favorite .egela-
bles. There is nothing more satis-
t'ing then having fresh vegetables
and herbs from your own garden.
What kind of vegetabless and
herbs to grow would depend on
the time of the year and your per-
sonal laste.

Juror call is a scam
Please pass this information to
your family and friends. It is
spreading fast so be prepared
should you get this call.
Someone calls pretending to be
a court official who threateningly
says a warrant has been issued for
your arrest because you didn't
show up for jury duty. The caller
claims to be a jury coordinator.
If you protest that you never
received a summons for jury duty.
the Scammer asks you for your
Social Security number and date of
birth so he or she can verify the
information and cancel the arrest
Sometimes they even ask for
credit card numbers. Give out any
of this information and your identi-
ty gets stolen.
This scam is particularly insidi-
ous because they.use intimidation
techniques, over the phone he or
she will try to coerce people into
giving information by pretending
they're with the court s.stem. The

have issued nationwide alerts on

featured in Save the Manatee
Club's adoption program, became
well-known when he decided to
take a long, leisurely swim up
north over a decade ago. He's a
great ambassador for his species,
as many people throughout the
world followed Chessie's nomadic
adventures while learning about
endangered manatees.
Florida researchers think that
the Florida manalee population
could be reduced by as much as
50 percent in the future from
growing: human-related threats
unless appropriate safeguards are
taken to protect the manatees'
wintering habitat and -reduce
human-caused mortality. Unfortu-
nately, boat strikes continue to kill
manatees in near-record numbers.

northern sightings serves to
encourage more boaters to be
careful on the waterways, as many
Florida visitors also like to go boat-

public inquires about the northern
manatee traveler and about mana-

unusual because the Club has

Keep 'Community"

Actions being taken by some
Lead Agencies in Florida's Com-
munity Based Care system for chil-
dren and families threaten the
philosophical and legislative intent
of Florida statutes designed to pri-
vatize child protection and foster
care by involving an array of com-
munity-based entities in the deliv-
ery of services. Instead, some Lead
Agencies are limiting the amount
of direct services provided by com-

munity partners.
We are deeply concerned at the
direction recently taken by The
Children's Network in Southwest
Florida. As a Lead Agency, The

Florida's cracker horse was a key player

By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Cracker horses are genuinely
almost native to Florida. Their
ancestors were brought to Florida
by the Spanish explorers in the 16th
century. These Colonial Spanish
horses descended from the horses
Andalusia in southern Spain, and
possibly North Africa, during the
period of the conquest of the New
Thanks to the patience and
horse savvy of the Spanish, a horse
was chosen that was small enough
to bring across the Atlantic in a sail-'
boat, yet tough enough to endure
the rigors and hardships of working
in an unknown world.
The Colonial Spanish Horse was
able to survive the harshest of
weather and endure the most sus-
tained work, as military mounts,

work horses and herding horses.
They are the foundation of the
western mustangs and the Florida
cracker horse.
In the year 1521, Juan Ponce De
Leon brought a small herd of
Andalusian cattle and horses with
him on his second expedition to the
New World. These were the first
cattle and horses to ever set foot (or
hoof) on what is now the continen-
tal United States. The Spanish
explorers were forced back to their
ship by the Calusa Indian warriors,
and Ponce De Leon received a mor-
tal wound. There is no record of
what became of the explorers live-
stock, so it is thought that these
were the first cattle and horses to
ever run wild in Florida. The horses
brought to the New World were the
product of selective breeding and
they played a tremendous role in
Florida History.

This graphic is a portion of a painting showing Hernando de
Soto, one of Florida's Spanish explorers mounted on a horse
brought to the New World.

In 1540 Don Diego Maldonado
brought a large herd of Spanish cat-
tle and horses to the Pensacola Bay
area to supply the expedition of
Hernando De Soto. Don Diego was
unable to make contact with the
conquistadors and it was reported
that many of the cattle were lost to
run wild in the timber of north Flori-
da or left with the Indians.
In 1565 Pedro Menendez De
Aviles founded the city of St. Augus-
tine and soon had cattle and horses
shipped from Spain to begin pro-
ducing beef for the garrison.
Ranching was born when Jesuit
and Franciscan Friars set up a sys-
tem of missions across north and
north-central Florida. Their mission
was to convert Indians to Christiani-
ty but the Friars also used Indian
labor to tend livestock and crops.
These were the first established
ranches in North America. Note
that the pilgrims who landed at Ply-
mouth Rock had not yet been born!
By 1700 there were over 30 pri-
vately owned ranchos in Florida. A
census ordered by Spanish tax col-
lectors reported over 20,000 cattle
on the ranchos. Mission herds were
exempt from reporting, cattle
owned by individual chiefs and
those running wild would not have
been counted. Persons born in
Florida to Spanish parents were
known as Criollas. Many Criolla
men worked as vaqueros on the
ranchos of Florida. Vaqueros and
natives clashed during the Indian
revolt of 1647. These were probably
the first fights between cowboys
and Indians in North America.
To protect horses being carried
in ships, slings were constructed to
allow the horses to swing with the
roll of the ship, and to take the
weight off their feet. Confinement
in damp, dark holds and lack of
exercise took its toll on equine emi-
grants. Sometimes half of the hors-
es died on the long passage to
That section of the Atlantic
Ocean known as the "Horse Lati-
tudes" gained its name from the
sad fact that innumerable dead
horses were thrown overboard into
the ocean during these early voy-
ages of colonization. Horse trans-
port between the Old and New
Worlds remained a great hazard
until only recently. Records from
the 1800s tell of the frequent death
of valuable horses, lost to the
stormy Atlantic.
When a ship anchored off the
coast of the New World, the horses
that survived the voyage were
brought out of their stalls in the
ship's hold. In order to prevent the
horses from panicking, they were
blindfolded and carefully raised
from below deck by hoists attached
to slings surrounding the horses'
bodies. In these early days before
wharves were built, the horses
were lowered into the water and
made to swim ashore, led by men
in row boats.
The horses that survived the
journey were the toughest of the
tough. Small, quick and tough, with
an uncanny herding instinct,
together with a running walk,
known as a "Coon gait" by South-
erners, these horses were major
contributors to Florida's cattle-
based economy.
During the "Dust Bowl" years of
1930's, government programs
encouraged moving cattle herds
out of areas hardest hit by the
droughts into the lush grasslands of
Florida. The great influx of cattle
should have been a boon to the nat-
urally gifted cow ponies, except for
the parasitic screwworm that came
with the cattle and flourished in the
warm, humid climate. The entire
cattle industry changed, jeopardiz-
ing the place of the Cracker. Where.
once a small, agile horse was per-
fect for chasing, turning and stop-
ping cows, now bigger, stouter
horses were needed to rope and
hold them for treatment against the
Florida cracker horses almost
became extinct during the Great
Depression of the 1930s, but Florida
ranchers who respected these
tough little horses, did not let that

In 1984 the family of John Law
Ayers donated a small herd of
cracker horses to the Department.
Mr. Ayers had maintained a herd of
pure old cracker stock and resisted
temptations to cross them with
other breeds. From this stock, horse
herds were established at the Agri-
cultural Complex in Tallahassee
and on the Withlacoochee State
Forest near Brooksville. The Ayers
family and others such as the Bron-
sons, Boals, Partins, Sassers and
perhaps others continue to main-
tain small herds of cracker horses.
Today, the Florida Cracker Horse
Association keeps alive the history
and tradition of a key player in Flori-
da's history, the Florida Cracker

Grab your bow because Hunting Season is here

By Tony Young
Florida Fish and Wildlife Cohser-
vation Commission
Summer's officially over even
though you can't tell 'cause it's
still so hot and sticky outside.
We've finished our preseason
scouting and hung our tree stands
along well-traveled deer trails,
hopefully next to a mature white
oak that'll begin dropping acorns
soon. Finally the time of year
we've been waiting for is here -
the beginning of football season,
and better yet, opening day of
hunting season, specifically
Archery season provides a
great opportunity to take a trophy
whitetail and is arguably one of
the best times to do so, along with
hunting the rut. If you're stealthy
enough and have done your
homework, you've got a good
chance of having a nice one walk
out in front of you.
Florida's divided into three
hunting zones, and you'll need to
know which zone you'll be hunt-
ing in because season dates vary.
Hunting season comes in first
in the South Hunting Zone where
archery season begins Sept. 9 and
ends Oct. 8. Next up is the Central
Zone which runs Sept. 23 Oct.
22. In the Northwest Hunting

Outta the


Zone, archery season begins Oct.
14 and ends Nov. 12.
To hunt during archery sea-
son, you'll need a Florida hunting
license and an archery permit.
If you're a Florida resident, a
hunting license costs $12.50.
Nonresidents may pay $46.50 for
a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12
months. The archery permit costs
$5 for in-state and out-of-staters.
Anyone planning to hunt one
of Florida's many wildlife man-
agement areas (WMAs) must
purchase a management area
permit for $26.50.
All of these are available at
county tax collectors' offices,
retail outlets that sell hunting and
fishing supplies, or by calling toll-
free 1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA or
clicking MyFWC.com/license.
The most common game to
take during archery season are
deer and wild hog. During this
period, deer of either sex are legal
game, regardless of antler size
(except for spotted fawns). The
daily bag limit on deer is two. Bag
limits on WMAs can differ, so con-

suit the area brochure.
Wild hogs are considered live-
stock on private lands and with
landowner permission can be
hunted year-round with no bag or
size limits. On most WMAs,
there's no bag or size limits, and
hogs are legal to take during any
hunting season except spring
turkey. On a few WMAs, limits do
apply so check the area brochure.
In addition to hunting big
game, it's also legal to shoot gob-
blers or bearded turkeys during
archery season. Only one can be
taken per day and there's a two-
bird fall-season limit. It's against
the law to hunt turkeys in Holmes
County during this period, and
you can't shoot turkeys while
they're on the roost, over bait,
when you're within 100 yards of a
game-feeding station or with the
aid of recorded turkey calls.
If you're quite the marksman,
gray squirrel, quail and rabbit are
three other species legal to take
during archery season, and
there's a daily bag limit of 12 for
Only bows may be used dur-
ing archery season no cross-
bows allowed, except for hunters
with a disabled crossbow permit.
Bows must have a minimum
draw weight of 35 pounds, and

hand-held releases are permitted.
For hunting deer, hog and turkey,
broadheads must have at least
two sharpened edges with a mini-
mum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a
half-hour before sunrise to a half-
hour after sunset. Except for
turkeys, you're permitted to take
resident game over corn or soy-
beans, as long as the game-feed-
ing station's been established for
at least six months and main-
tained year-round. It's against the
law to use such bait on WMAs.
Some things you can't do dur-
ing archery season include pos-
sessing firearms, using explosive
or drug-injecting arrows, using
bows equipped with electronic
computational or laser sights and
possessing a bow on an airboat in
Miami-Dade County.
You can't use dogs to hunt
deer, hogs or turkeys, but you can
use bird-dogs if quail hunting.
Otherwise, the only time you can
have a dog in the woods while
.hunting is on a leash, and you're
using it to trail wounded game.
Here's hoping all your prepa-
ration and persistence pays off
and wishing you luck on taking
that monster buck. As always,
have fun, hunt safely and ethical-
ly, and we'll see you in the woods!

Volleyball starts
with two wins
BABSON PARK, Fla. The lady
warriors started off their 2006 sea-
son with two wins against Brew-
ton-Parker College and Brenau
University. Defeating Brewton-
Parker 30-13, 17-30, 30128, 30-25
and then defeating Brenau 30-14,
30-33, 30-16, 30-16. Neither oppo-
nent made it easy for the warriors,
by taking them to four games.
Cindy Eurie led the team with
24 kills followed by Leah Mer-
rique with 12 and Chantelle Jor-
dan with 10. Danelle Wagner led
the evening with 69 assists, while
the opposing offense was con-
trolled by Chantelle Jordan's
defense, with 28 digs.
Coach Tim Edfors comment-
ed, "I was overall pleased with the
teams performance, but we need
to work on our serving."
Soccer team is 0-3
Webber women's soccer team
faced a Bethel College who were
on top form. The 20th ranked
Wildcats were in full control of a
very touch game for Webber.
Once again the Warriors start-
Sed slowly and found themselves a
goal down in the first five min-
utes. Philisha Lewis took full
advantage off an assist from the
faultless Alicia James.
James who scored two goals
on the day and an assist was the
architect of the Warriors down-
fall. The Warriors stuttering start
continued as the Wlidcats added
goals from Amanda Montesano,

Carla Chambers; Florence Iweta
and DeAnna Flores.
There was a bright spot in the
first half when freshman Christin
Carson rose above the defense to
flight a header over the Wildcat
'keeper in the 40th minute. Car-
son capped off an impressive
home debut with this very well
taken goal.
The beginning of the second
half continued much like that of
the first with the Wildcats scoring
quickly. Alicica James got the first
of her two goals in the second
minute after a magnificent run.
She added her second and the
teams seventh in the 54th minute
after some good work from Flo-
rence Iweta.
Leah O'Grady rounded out the
scoring for the Wildcats with a
strong shot to the lower left cor-
ner of the goal on. the 54th
minute. To their credit the War-
riors never stopped working and
got scant reward when Jenny
Simmons capitalized on a mis-
take by the Wildcats 'keeper to
coolly lob the ball home.
,"We came up against a very
impressive team today, and we
were clearly second best,"
announced Coach Gilks. "We
will be going back to basics after
this and regroup and tackle our
next opponent head on."
Football team travels
to Tennessee
Webber football team traveled to
Jefferson City, Tenn. with the
hopes of getting the season off to
the best possible start. Those

hopes began to fade after the Car-
son Newman Eagles got on the
scoreboard early thanks to a safe-
The Warriors did not help their
cause throughout the game
which was littered with 11 penal-
ties for a total of 103 yards. After
the safety the Eagles marched
downfield unopposed to score a-.
touchdown three minutes later.
After some rear-guard action the
Warriors defense caved again, this
time allowing Eagle quarterback
Alex Rouse to run in a 28 yard
touchdown. That proved to be
the final action of the first quarter.
The teams entered the second
quarter in much the same vain,
with the Eagles firmly dictating
play. In their first possession the
Eagles totaled four first downs in
a drive that ended with Trey
Stephens linking up with Alex
Good for a 14 yard touchdown
pass. With only six minutes left in
the first half the Eagles stretched
their lead courtesy off three War-
riors penalties which allowed
Alex Rouse to find Steven Childs
for a 44-yard touchdown. The
Eagles were dominating the War-
riors 30-0 at the interval.
The Warriors started the sec-
ond half much brighter and new
quarterback #BJ Hall# complet-
ed 5 of 14 passes for 38 yards. All
was not well with a series of bad
snaps, fumbles, and dropped
Less than one minute into the
fourth quarter, Hall fumbled on
his own one-yard line for Elliette
Jackson to recover and score. It
went from bad to worse when a

42-yard Travis Tubbs punt was
carried back 60-yards for another
touchdown, this time by Barry
Defensively the Warriors were
led by Eric Potochney with 17
tackles, followed by #Josh
Suggs# with 12. Offensively
Rupert Wembley had a good
return rushing for 40-yards-off 4
The Warriors will look to
recover from the early season loss

8 The Frostproof News, Thursday, September 7, 2006





On behalf of the Mid-Florida Medical Services Foundation Board of Trustees we wish to acknowledge and thank our 2006 Annual Fund donors and underwriters. Over the last five years our Annual
Fund donors, who are comprised of Winter Haven Hospital medical staff, private individuals, regional corporate leaders and Mid-Florida Medical Services/Winter Haven Hospital employees, have
helped us raise $700,000 to improve health care in East Polk county. Your combined gifts have made a dramatic difference in the quality of health care Winter Haven Hospital's patients are receiving.
This year we are proud to announce that our Annual Fund has raised $195,000 to purchase a $125,000 state-of-the-art CPR training system for the hospital's new Stroke Center. The $70,000 balance
will be utilized to underwrite new Foundation scholarships for future East Polk health care professionals. While recently addressing Foundation Trustees on the subject Winter Haven Hospital, President
Lance Anastasio stated "utilizing the Foundation's Annual Fund resources in this way will be of particular benefit to our organization and to the thousands of future patients the hospital and it's Stroke
Center will serve." Winter Haven Hospital Board Chairman Mark Bostick adds "the Foundation's Annual Fund Campaign is proving to be a serious fundraising engine that provides direct community
benefit. It allows everyone, regardless of their economic status, to participate in improving health care locally. All gifts to the Annual Fund, no matter how large or small, are gratefully received and the funds
go right back to the patients Winter Haven Hospital and the Regency Medical Center care for." I can think of no better way to sum it up than to say thank you again to our Annual Fund Campaign
