accepts sheriff's help


By Cindy Monk
Frostproof News
After nearly three hours of dis-
cussion at the Special City Coun-
cil Meeting held Monday, Sept.
18, the Frostproof City Council
voted 3-1 to sign the contract
agreement (with the amended
provisions) with the Polk County
SSheriffs Office to begin January
2007.
Several local residents
expressed an uneasy feeling over


the change of command once
again and vocalized their con-
cerns.
Estelle Sullivan said her office
(Sullivan Real Estate) as well she
herself spent many long hours
working on annexations mainly
to gain the protection of the City
of Frostproof Police Department.
Mrs. Sullivan went on to
explain, that prior to being
annexed into the city she had
incurred a few negative response
times from the sheriff's Office


due to county dispatch errors.
She explained it appears the
county dispatchers aren't familiar
with the streets in Frostproof. She
said even though she gave a clear
street address, on more than one
occasion the response time was-
n't what it should be.
Jennifer Plair, the wife of a for-
mer Frostproof Police Officer (11
years of service), said her hus-
band had wanted to live where
they would have acreage outside
the city limits but they decided to

live in the city limits so the family
would reap the benefits of the
local police protection. She also
explained while her husband
was an officer he also helped to
coached sports at the high
school. She said it was nothing to
get a knock at the door all hours
of the night from students need-
ing help or someone to talk to.
She went on to say, how many
officers are willing to be available
to local residents at all hours
even when you are off the clock.


This you find in Frostproof.
Mrs. Plair also expressed con-
cern about what would happen
to the police department's retire-
ment fund. According to City
Attorney Brian Haas, by law the
city is responsible to maintain the
plan.
Frostproof Officer Billy Hood
said he was 100 percent in favor
of the agreement, but would like

Identity theft



in Polk County


BARTOW, Fla. Richard
Weiss, Clerk of the Circuit
Court of Polk County, Florida,
who serves as Jury Manager
for the Court system, wants
residents to be aware of an
identity theft scam that's crop-
ping up in Polk County.,
The scam is both simple
and intimidating. You receive
a phone call from a person
who identifies himself or her-
self as a court official. You are
told that you failed to report
for jury duty and a warrant
has been issued for your
arrest. You, or course, say you
never knew anything about it.
The caller then says that in
order to clear.the matter up,
you must provide some infor-
mation for "verification pur-
poses" birth date, social
security number, maybe even
a credit card number so you
can pay a fine.


Even though you may be
frightened by the threat of jail,
Weiss says your response
should be to hang up the
phone immediately and con-
tact law enforcement. Court
officers never ask for confi-
dential identifying informa-
tion on the telephone.
Weiss states, "I want to
emphasize that jury duty is an
important civic responsibility
and should be taken seriously
by all who are summoned.
However, the crime of false
representation is committed
when a person purports to be
a court official The public
must be aware of these scams
so they can both protect
themselves and report it to
authorities if it does happen."
Weiss strongly encourages
anyone who has been the vic-

Plane crashes



two fatalities


Bartow, FL. We are sad-
dened by last weeks plane
crash that resulted in the
deaths of two of our Polk
County Board of County Com-
missioners' Natural Resources
Division Mosquito Control
employees.
Pilot Richard Wheeler and
observer/mosquito control
foreman Clayton Merriett
were spraying insecticides in
the area when their plane
crashed' into the ground
approximately 8 p.m. just out-
side of Ft. Meade.
Our thoughts and prayers
are with the victims' families
as well as their BoCC family in
the Natural Resources Divi-


sion and others who knew
them.
The plane, a 1965 twin
engine Piper, functioned as a
Polk County mosquito control
sprayer. The chemicals on
board the plane caused a
chemical brush fire that was
extinguished byfirefighters.
Because of the chemicals
on the ground at the :rash site
and the late hour, Polk County
Sheriff's Office crime scene
technicians and .detectives
were unable to process the
scene, recover the bodies or
begin the death investigation..
Deputies secured the scene

Cypress Gardens reorganizes


Under the Governor's lead-
ership the state of Florida was
instrumental in saving Cypress
Gardens when it closed its
doors in 2003. Working hand-
in-hand with the state, local
government and the Trust For
Public Land, a historic deal
was inked early in 2004 to save
the venerable attraction with
new owner, Kent Buescher at
the helm. Work revitalizing
and restoring the park began
immediately and Cypress Gar-
dens Adventure Park was
reborn in November 2004.
It's business as usual as
Adventure Parks Group, LLC
begins reorganization. Guests
will see improved operations
at Wild Adventures and
Cypress Gardens.
Valdosta, GA- On Septem-
ber 11, 2006 Adventure Parks
Group, LLC (APG) took a nec-
essary and responsible step in
securing the future of Wild
Adventures Theme Park and
Cypress Gardens Adventure


Park. In a move designed to
allow the parks to continue to
offer its blend of affordable
family entertainment, APG vol-
untarily filed for reorganization
under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code. The move is
a direct result of the losses sus-
tained by the company due to
,extensive damages caused by
three direct hurricane hits in
2004. Shortly after APG
acquired Cypress Gardens, the
reorganization and reopening
were substantially impacted by
over $25 million worth of dam-
ages by Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne. The dev-
astation wrought by the storms
delayed opening and forced
the company to find additional
financing to continue recon-
struction. Subsequent efforts
to reach a claim settlement
with the insurance company
have been unsuccessful, mak-
ing it increasingly difficult to
meet financial commitments
and leading to this step.


Employees and guests will not
be affected by the reorganiza-
tion and should expect
improved operations at both
parks, as APG has obtained a
$15 million financing commit-
ment through General Electric
Capital Corporation.
During the reorganization,
park guests will continue to
enjoy all the entertainment
value they have grown to
expect without any interrup-
tions. Passports are being hon-
ored as usual, as are all other
customer programs and poli-
cies, to include parking per-
mits, concert reserve seats and
group tickets. Additionally, the
parks have planned an
expanded concert and event
line-up for the rest of this year
and into 2007.
APG will use the reorganiza-
tion process to reduce total
debt, improve profitability and
emerge as a stronger, more

Obituaries


William 'Buddy'
Kelsoe
* William 'Buddy' Kelsoe, 79,
of Frostproof, died Wednesday,
Sept. 6, 2006.
Mr. Kelsoe was born Feb. 2,
1927 in Altoona, Ala., and came
to Frostproof in 1945.
He was a retired truck driver
of Ben Hill Griffin.
He was a member of Frost-
.proof Church of God and an
Army veteran of World War II.
He was preceded in death by
his daughter; Sharon Joy Kelsoe
in 1949.
Survivors include his wife,
Mary Magdalene Kelsoe; daugh-
ter, Kimberly Kelsoe Cutts of
Frostproof; sons, Carl C. Kelsoe
of Statsburg, N.Y., Joseph D. Kel-
soe; brothers, Clifford Kelsoe of
Davie, FL., and Pete Kelsoe of
Jonesboro, Ga.; sister, Christine
Henneger of Scottsboro, Ala.;
seven grandchildren; three
great-grandchildren.
Visitation was held Sept. 8, at
Frostproof Church of God in
Frostproof. Interment followed
at Silver Hill Cemetery.
Marion Nelson Funeral Home
of Frostproof was in charge of
arrangements.

Joseph Parker Cresse
Joseph Parker Cresse, age 77,
died peacefully on August 29,
2006, at his home surrounded by
family. He is survived by his wife
of thirty years, Beverly Holiday
Cresse. Joe was born October 7,
1928 in Cutler, Indiana to Bruce
Cresse and Lela Baker. He
moved to the tiny central Florida
town of Frostproof with his fami-
ly in 1936. He attended Frost-
proof High School where he
enjoyed academics as well as
athletics, playing basketball and
football. Joe attended the Uni-,
versity of Florida on a Latt Maxcy
Scholarship and graduated with
a degree in accounting in 1950.
Joe served two years in the


Army, stationed in Germany. He
moved to Tallahassee in 1954
where he began a distinguished
career with the State of Florida,
serving various career service
positions beginning with assis-
tant State Auditor. He spent two
decades in the State's budget
office under various Governor's
including Leroy Collins, Farris
Bryant, Claude Kirk and Haydon
Burns. He served as the State's
Budget Director throughout
most of Governor Reubin
Askew's eight years as Governor.
Prior to leaving office, Governor
Askew named Joe to the Public
Service Commission where he
served from 1979 1985. At the
time, Askew stated "Joe Cresse
may well be the most able career
service employee that state gov-
ernment has produced in mod-
ern time. He was a walking
computer, totally honest and
performed outstanding service."
After thirty years of service to the
State where he earned the admi-
ration of governors and busi-
nessmen, he became a consult-
ant for the Messer, Vickers,
Capprello Law firm and worked
for another 15 years, retiring for
a second time in 2001.
In 1981 Joe was honored with
the University of Florida's Distin-
guished Alumnus Award for
excellence in his chosen field
and having performed outstand-
ing service for the university. In
1985, he was awarded the
National Governor's Association
Award for Distinguished service
to State Government. Former
Governor Bob Graham accepted
the award on Joe's behalf and
relayed "I did my best Joe Cresse
impression as I could, but there
is nothing like the original". The
Honorable Don Fuqua recog-
nized this national achievement
by reading an official statement
in the United States Congres-
sional Record. The statement
noted that "Joe is an individual
who gave increasing of his time
and devoted his career to sound


government for his fellow Florid-
ians."
Beverly and Joe celebrated
their 30th anniversary in July,
having shared together family,
friends, golf, travel, their mutual
love of animals and God's crea-
tures, as evidence by their home
in Tallahassee with the deer,
geese, birds, raccoons, cats and
dogs, Speck and Mandy. Joe had
a deep love of the outdoors
especially quail hunting, which
was an important part of his life
while growing up in Florida.
Although not given to exuberant
expression, Joe always radiated
excitement when one of his
many beloved bird dogs per-
formed admirably in the field.
He trained and cared for many
dogs throughout his lifetime, his
favorites being old Sport and
Sandy. One of his greatest pleas-
ures in life was spending a day
hunting at "Little River Farm" in
Midway. He also spent late after-
noons and weekend fishing on
his backyard lake, and was cer-
tain to play poker with his bud-
dies whenever possible. Joe
looked forward to the annual
reunion with his high school
classmates and truly enjoyed the
fellowship of those friends he
grew up with in Frostproof.
In addition to this wife, Joe is
survived by two daughters:
Elaine Atwood (and her hus-
band Bob) and Kay Huneidi;
three stepchildren, Richard Dozi-
er (and his wife Teresa), Holly
Plaviak (husband Mike) and
Suzanne Harvey (husband
Mark); six grandchildren includ-
ing granddaughters Lindsay and
Kelly Hogan, grandson Daniel
Huneidi, and step grandchildren
Ryan Dozier, Samantha Bennett,
and Sarah Williams, all of Talla-
hassee. Joe is also survived by
two sisters, Betty Cresse Hillard
of Melbourne, Florida, and
Rebecca Cresse Brandon, Lake
Wales, Florida, and various
nieces and nephews, including
Dan Hilliard and Bill Cresse Jr.

and Jack Cresse.
Joe always had an optimistic
outlook and though out his life
encouraged those around with a
simple philosophy of words
including "As you go through
Life, whatever be .your Goal,
Keep your eye upon the Dough-
nut and not upon the Hole." He
always told folks to look to
what's important! As Abe Lin-
coln said, "LIVE A GOOD LIFE:
In the end, its not the years in the
life, it's the life in the years."

Warriors shutout
Campbellsville
Lake Wales, Fla. -The Webber
football team improves their record
to 2-1 on Saturday as they shutout
the Tigers of Campbellsville (0-2)
36-0 at Legion Field in Lake Wales.
Sophomore running back Ranir
Rackley ran for 94 yards on 11
attempts with three touchdowns.
Webber's offense, behind junior
quarterback BJ Hall, tallied 460
yards and the defense collected
their first shutout of the season.
The Warriors set the tone early
scoring within the first five minutes
of the game when Joe Small recov-
ered a fumble by Campbellsville's
running back Cody Eubanks in the
end zone for a safety. After a couple
of quick changes in possessions
due to'fumbles the Warriors took
control of the ball at the Camp-
bellsville 17 yard line. Hall handed
off to sophomore running back
Rupert Webley on two plays for
seven yards before finally handing
off to Rackley for a 10 yard touch-.
down. Senior kicker Ryan McNal-
ly's extra point attempt was good
for a 9-0 lead.
The Warriors created a com-
manding lead in the second quarter
within 10 minutes of the quarter for
a 23-0 lead at the end of the half.
Hall found Rackley again.with 9:05
on the clock in the second quarter
for a three yard Warrior touch-
down. The 73-yard drive included a
23 yard pass to Josh Smith, 13 yard
pass to Chad Pearce, and a 19 yard
run by Ranir Rackley. Mike Wilson
intercepted a Michael Mikrut pass
at the Campbellsville 40 yard line
and ran it for a touchdown with
4:58 left inthe half.
On the Warriors first drive of the
second half, Hall found Rackley
one more time for the only touch-
down of the quarter and a 30-0 lead
over the Tigers. With 4:18 left in the
game senior quarterback Dedrick
Sykes picked out wide receiver Eric
Snyder for a six yard touchdown
pass. The Warrior possession,
which was obtained off a punt
from Ryan Donohue, led to a 55-
yard drive and a 10 yard penalty
which ended with the Sykes-Sny-
der touchdown. McNally's extra
point attempt was no good, finish-
ing the scoring for the Warriors and
keeping the score at 36-0.
The Warriors held a distinct
edge over the Tigers, 460-194 in
totally offensive yards. Rackley led
the Warriors rushing game fol-
lowed by Justin Mitchell with 73
and B.J. Hall with 70. Hall finished
the day 9-for-13 with 125 yards
passing and a 69%,dompletion.
David Tate and Eric Potochney led
the flawless defense with 8 tackles
each. Jimmie Barfield topped the
list aswellwith 7.
The Warriors take on Walsh
University next Saturday for the
third consecutive home game. The
game is scheduled to kick-off at 1
p.m. at Legion Field as the Warriors
look to improve their winning
streak to three.


Soccer

WIU men's soccer
prevails in GA
The Webber men's soccer team
traveled to Savannah, Saturday
afternoons ,d cam hqmne with the
result theywanted.
On a veriydifficultpitch the War-
riors started brightly and asked
questions early of the Bees defense.
After some greatwork in the middle
of the park, Bjorn Asbjornsson
broke through the Bees backline
only to be hauled down in the box
by SCAD's 'keeper. Asbjornsson
duly stepped up to dispatch the
penalty, and put the Warriors 1-0 up.
SCAD woke up after the goal
and started to put more pressure on
the Warriors but the team stood
strong and created some good
chances of their own. After a break-
down in communication SCAD tied
the score in the 35th minute
through Fadida who fired home.
The Warriors reacted well to the
goal and pilled on the pressure at a
greater rate. Several.good chances
went begging before an individual
piece of brilliance from David
Wahlberg. He turned his marker
inside out and supplied a ball to Jon
Hermannsson 'ho rifled a shot into
a SCAD defender for the ball to loop
over the stranded 'keeper.
The second half provided no
more goals and alot of SCAD pres-
sure. The reflexes of Tony Restino
were to keep the Bees from scoring
more than one on the afternoon.
Restino repelled any threat that
leaked past the Warriors defensive
unit and pulled off some excellent
saves.
"Tony was magnificent today, in
the second half he came into his
own and was faultless," said John
Haworth. "We got the result today
but we never really got into our
stride. I guess that is the sign of a
decent team when they do not play
well but still win,' commented
Haworth.
The Warriors travel to Florida
Southern mid-week to replay an.
earlier game that was cancelled due
to inclimate weather. The kick off is
Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 7 p.m.

Volleyball

Lady Warriors
win over weekend
After traveling down to West
Palm Beach last Friday to play the
Seahawks of Northwood Universi-
ty, the Warriors turned around to
play new conference foe Edward
Waters at home the following day.
It turned out to be the perfect
start for Edfors and his team. The
Warriors went 2-0 over the week-
end defeating Northwood 3-1 (30-
22, 30-25, 28-30, 30-14); and then
Edward Waters 3-0 (30-14, 30-20,
30-24).,
Leading the offense for the War-
riors in West Palm Beach were
Chantelle Jordan with 12 kills and
14 digs and Danelle Wagner with
29 assists. After dropping the third
game the Warriors came out strong
and punished the Seahawks 30-14.


Youngsters contribute to ARC


Scouts and students gather sup-
plies and funds for Polk County
American Red Cross
Polk County, FL. In the last
month, Girl Scouts in Lakeland and
middle school students in Winter
Haven have made significant con-
tributions to their local American
Red Cross.
On Aug. 26, just a week before
Tropical Storm Ernesto began to
bear down on Polk County, two
Juliette Girl Scouts Angelica Brig-
man and Lexi Rhoden of Lakeland
- collected enough materials make
280 children's' shelter activity kits.
As part of their service project to
earn the Girl Scouts of America
Bronze Badge, the two girls intend-
ed to put together 100 activity kits
and deliver them to the American
Red Cross by Aug. 12.
Once they started gathering the
materials, they had far more than
they needed and simply made
extra kits, which took the extra
time. Each kit contains a coloring
book, crayons, toothbrush, tooth-
paste, an activity/game book, stick-
ers and a Beanie Baby from their
parents' collection. They put the
activity book together themselves


on a computer, but everything else
was donated.
Brigman said the 2004 hurri-
cane season is one Polk Countywill
never forget. She and Rhoden said
they hope their project will bring
some comfort to children who dis-
placed during this storm season.
On Aug. 26, Emergency Ser-
vices Director Linda Scialo, Public
Relations Director PhilAttinger, and
Emergency Services Specialist Eric
Carroll from the Polk County Amer-
ican Red Cross arrived at the Brig-
man's Lakeland home to collect
the shelter kits and thank the girls
personally. Scialo was over-
whelmed by the sheer volume of
work the two scouts had complet-
ed. She said the kits would be used
at Polk County shelters, not know-
ing at the time how close Tropical
Storm Ernesto came to opening
those shelters.
Sara Beth Reynolds, who pre-
sented the check on behalf of the
organization's 41 student mem-
.bers, said the 2006-2007class of the
Jewett Middle Academy National
Junior Honor Socie't has planned
more fundraisers to help the Ameri-
can Red Cross this year.


Since last year's hurricane sea-
son, the National.Junior Honor
Society at Jewett Middle Academy
in Winter Haven has been raising
funds and decided to help the
American Red Cross as well. On
Wednesday, Sept. 6, they presented
the Polk County American Red
Cross Executive Director Tom
Costello with a check for $500.
Costello thanked Reynolds and the
-other students for helping to sup-
port American Red Cross efforts to
provide disaster relief and health
and safety classes in cardiopul-
monary resuscitation, first-aid,
babysitting, and water safety. It's
only through the support of the
community that the Red Cross is
able to provide these services,
Costello said.
Angelica Brigman and Lexi
Rhoden want to thank the follow-
ing for donating materials or funds
to help them provide shelter activity
kits. They are Mr. and Mrs. Brvan
Bailey, Dr. Harry E. Bopp, Dr. T.T.
- Brzozowski, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene
Casey, Mr. and Mrs., Jordan Cokee,
Mr. and Mrs. Jim Crawiord, Mr. and
Mrs. Kirk Davis, Dr. Suihung Fan,
