'Let managers manage'


Sparks says
council wouldn't
let him do his job

By MaryAnn Morris and
Cindy Monk
INI Florida
A petition is being circulated
to recall two members of Frost-
proof's city council.
Mayor Damon Nicholson and
Councilman Otto Polk are asked
by these petitions to step down
from their leadership positions in
Frostproof's government. The
petitions cite "misfeasance, neg-


lect of duty and/or incompe-
tence." due to Mr. Polk's refusal
to continue support for current
City Manager Edward Sparks;
and Mayor Nicholson's voting for
two city managers who later
resigned, citing lack of council
support, and a third who was
hired without a background
check.
The City of Frostproof has
hired and lost three city man-
agers in just over a year. With
issues of crumbling. infrastruc-
ture to be addressed and funds
depleted by damages from the
four hurricanes that swept across
Frostproof in 2004, the manag-
er's office will be empty again.


"The campaign is going very
well," said James Dickinson, Jr.,
who heads the committee that
authored the recall petition.
"The matter should be con-
cluded in a couple months," said
Mr. Dickinson. "Then we can hire
a new manager and get our city
government back to the good
government it should be and
begin to recover the money we
have unwisely spent."
When asked if he thought Mr.
Sparks would stay on if there
were a new council, Mr. Dickin-
son said that Mr. Sparks' last day
is Tuesday, but he could of
course, re-apply to a new city
council.

Interact Club active in community


On Tuesday, Nov. 14, Frost-
proof Rotarians visited the Club
at their after-school meeting.
Rotary President Ralph Waters
presented Interact Vice-Presi-
dent Santos Gonzalez with a
bell, mallet and carrying case
for the Club's presiding officer
to use to call the meeting to
order, to bring the, members
back to attention, and to con-
clude the meeting. The Frost-
proof Rotary Club used a dona-
tion it received from State
House Representative Baxter
Troutman's Re-Election Cam-
paign Fund to fund .this pur-
chase.
The Frostproof Interact Club,
a Frostproof High School serv-
ice club sponsored by the Frost-
proof Rotary Club, has three
pieces of news to report.
After the bell presentation,
Ralph Waters, Chairman of the
Chamber of Commerce's 2006
Frostproof Christmas Parade,
asked the Interactors if they
would decorate the Frostproof
Care Center float for the parade.
As is tradition, the float will
include Santa and his reindeer
as well as toys that will be


Mayor Damon Nicholson, the
subject of one of the recall peti-
tions had comments on the peti-
tion.
"The information in the peti-
tion is not true with regard to the
three managers leaving," said
Mayor Nicholson, "Council was
advised by the then acting city
manager, Stella Heath, that a
background check had been per-
formed and Mr. Johnson cleared.
It was not so. After Mr. Johnson,
the next city manager, Mr.
Brady's wife refused to relocate
to Frostproof." With regard to Mr.
Sparks' saying that he did not
have the support of the council,
Mayor Nicholson had this to say:


"No, I did not agree with him
100 percent on every issue, nor
did I agree with him 100 percent
of the time. But, I said, I will work
with him. We had an issue when
Mr. Sparks wanted to be head of
the Public Works Department,
which he could. The problem
was that Mr. Sparks did not want
to follow the city charter and I
told him so. In the charter, 5.04b
says 'With approval of council,
the city manager may serve as
head to one or more depart-
ments ...' and I said to him,'All
you had to do was ask.' I did not
feel that he communicated well

SPower lines may be kept out of Everglades


WEST PALM BEACH -- New
power transmission lines original-
ly planned to run for approxi-
mately 8 miles through Ever-
glades National Park might now
be located outside the Park
boundaries, thanks to a utility
easement authorized today by the
South Florida Water Management
District. The plan would require
Florida Power & Light Company
(FP&L), which currently owns a
utility easement one and three-
quarter miles inside the Park, to
release their interest. The new
easement, to be granted to the
United States in order to protect
the Park, will then be conveyed to


FP&L. The easement is located on
District right-of-way lands in
Miami-Dade County near Tamia-
mi Trail and along the L-31 north
canal.
"The District's easement offer
is very much appreciated," said
Dan Kimball, Superintendent of
Everglades National Park. "High-
power transmission lines are best
sited outside the Park and away
from Everglades wetlands. It may
allow FP&L to continue with their
upgrading work without directly
impacting the national park. "Mr.
Kimball added, "This innovative
solution is just another example
of the partnership between the

'Parent's Night Out'


South Florida Water Management
District and the U.S. Department
of the Interior in restoring the
Everglades and protecting the
Park."
The resolution by the District's
Governing Board assigns a "per-
petual access and utility ease-
ment" on a 330-feet-wide tract
within the L-31N right-of-way and
on adjoining District lands north
of Tamiami Trail and south of the
G-211 structure. These additional
tracts are needed to connect with
an existing Florida Power & Light
corridor. The resolution is subject
to an agreement by all parties,
which includes Florida Power &


Light's releasing its existing land
interests within the Park. Other
than recording fees, no costs are
required from the Park for this
easement.
"Interagency cooperation
again proves key to Everglades
restoration," said Carol Ann
Wehle, Executive Director of the
South Florida Water Management
District. "Even a basic issue like
this, a utility easement, requires
us to communicate, share our
resources and keep the primary
mission in mind. America's Ever-
glades continue to be in good
hands."


It's 'Parent's Night Out' at
First Baptist Church. This annual
outreach event is sponsored and
staffed by Preschool and Chil-
dren's department leaders and
will be held Friday, Dec. 8, from
6p.m. until 9 p.m.
Parents are given an opportu-
nity to spend a few hours shop-
ping, dining out, or just relaxing.
All children (infant thru 5th
grade) are invited and wel-
comed to join us for a fun time.
Seasonal music, games, crafts,
and Bible stories will be fea-


tured. Puppets, skits, and family
movies are often included in this
time of non-stop fun and adven-
ture.
You do not have to be a mem-
ber of First Baptist Church to
participate. There is no cost or
obligation, though you may
make a donation to the Chil-
dren's Department if you wish.
You may pre-register your
children by stopping by our
office located at 96 West B
Street, or by calling 635-3603.

Boosters welcome new members


The FABC (Frostproof Athletic
Booster Club) is for anyone want-
ing to help with all Frostproof
High School sports. FABC meets
the second Monday of each month
in the FHS Media Center at 7 p.m.
The club raises money for the
following sports; baseball, volley-
ball, swimming, weightlifting,
.wrestling, track, cross country,
,softball, tennis, basketball, golf,
:soccer and football.
SThe Boosters would like the
,community to know that the club
tries to support ALL FMSHS sports,
'so when they see a fundraiser


please know that it will help sup-
port a variety of sports.
Wish lists have been submitted
from all the coaches and it's the
intention of the Boosters to fill
most of those requests. The club
has already begun by purchasing
tents that will be used by swim-
ming, tennis, cross country imme-
diately and any other sport that
needs them in the future.
Booster members are currently
working on providing lighting for
the tennis courts and hopes to
assist the baseball team with
much needed uniforms. Wrestling


is another sport that has special
needs.
The needs of the sport teams
mentioned are a huge undertaking
since many of the FMSHS sports
are considered non-revenue
sports.
Football is a large part of Frost-
proof sports and the Boosters are
very appreciative of the communi-
ty support that particular sport
receives, but there are so many
othersports that need the support
from the community aswell.

the Annual Frostproof Rotary

tournament will be held at Lake
Wales Country Club, beginning
with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.
Citizens Bank & Trust is spon-
soring the Hole-in-One Contest!
The Frostproof Rotary Club
has served the Frostproof com-
munity for seventy-nine years
and has held a golf tournament
to raise money for scholarships
for the 'past eighteen years.
Frostproof Rotary Club Presi-
dent Ralph Waters explains, "In
the past, so that donors were


able to take tax deductions, the
Club used the golf tournament
proceeds exclusively for scholar-
ships for Frostproof High School
graduates.. The Frostproof
Rotary Club set up a public char-
ity, allowing the Club the flexi-
bility to use the proceeds not
only for scholarships but also for
other school and community
needs. Donations made to a
public charity by local citizens
and businesses are tax
Deductible to the extent permis-
sible by federal law."
Rotary is accepting registra-
tions for golfers and hole spon-
sors until Wednesday, Dec 13.


The golf fee of $75 includes
greens fee, cart, lunch, and par-
ticipation in the longest drive
and closest to the hole contests.
Hole sponsorships guaranteeing
recognition on Rotary's sponsor
board are $100. A corporate
package of $350 includes a four-
some and a hole sponsorship.
Registrations should be.sent
to The Frostproof Rotary Chari-
table Foundation, Inc. at P.O.
Box 456, Frostproof, FL 33843.

National Farm-City Week celebrated statewide


GAINESVILLE As wise stew-
ards and innovative entrepre-
neurs, farmers and ranchers
improve our well-being by
working to ensure a healthy and
abundant agricultural supply. To
succeed in this important enter-
prise, they rely on essential part-
nerships with people in urban
communities to supply, sell and
deliver finished products across
the country and around the
world. National Farm-City
Week, celebrated annually on
the week leading to and ending
on Thanksgiving Day, recog-
nizes the importance of this
cooperative network to the suc-
cess of America's agricultural
industry.
"Our farmers know how to
grow the 280 different com-
modities that we produce in the
state of Florida," said John:
Hoblick, president of the Florida
Farm Bureau Federation. "They
also know that it: takes many
other partnerships in order for
that food to get to America's
table, and it's the success of
those partnerships that we cele-
brate during Farm-City Week."


Today, the agricultural indus-
try provides us with many of the
necessities of life, such as food,
clothing and fuel for our energy
needs. Agriculture employs
more than 24 million workers
including farmers, shippers,
processors, marketers, grocers,
truck drivers, inspectors and
others in America who annually
contribute more than $1.3 tril-
lion to our gross domestic prod-
uct.
"Farm-city collaborations
help maintain and improve our
nation' food supply and con-
tribute to a better quality of life
for countless citizens," said Mr.
Hoblick. "With this Farm-City
Week observance, we com-
mend the many Americans
whose hard work and ingenuity
reflect the true spirit of America
and help ensure a prosperous
future for all."
Where does Florida agricul-
ture fit into this equation? Flori-
da has 44,000 farmers who grow
more than 280 different crops
on a commercial scale that's
more than any other state
except California with cash


receipts totaling over $87.5 bil-
lion.
"Through our farm-city part-
nerships, agriculture has an
enormous economic impact on
our state," said Mr. Hoblick.
How are they getting the job
done? Florida farmers employed
more than 94,000 farm workers,
and overall the industry sup-
ports over 388,000 jobs in the
state.
And, what about the environ-
ment? About two-thirds of Flori-
da is farmland and forests. More
than 30 percent is devoted to
agriculture, which includes crop
production as well as improved
pastures, woodlands and open
spaces, and nearly 40 percent,
representing commercial
forestry, is covered with trees.
These well-managed, produc-
tive lands help preserve Florida's
environment by providing green
space, conserving water and
protecting wildlife habitat.
Farmers and ranchers, grow-,.
ers and producers, care about
their environment. According to
a U.S. Geological Survey report,
Florida farmers reduced their


ground after withdrawals 7 per-
cent by installing more efficient
irrigation systems and imple-
menting other Best Manage-
ment Practices (BMPs) such as
using reclaimed wastewater
and stored rainfall. During the
same period, withdrawal for
public supply increased by 7
percent due to population
growth.
"We are seeing more and
more of our agricultural land
being converted into housing
and urban development," said
Mr. Hoblick. "With the increas-
ing pressures faced by agricul-
ture, combined with the increas-
ing value of property, that trend
will most likely continue."
Agricultural crops provide
the same environmental bene-
fits as natural vegetation. Plants
and trees emit water into the
atmosphere through transpira-
tion, contributing to the hydro-
logic cycle that produces rain-
fall. Once land is paved over it
cannot absorb the water and
recharge the aquifer. Agricultur-
al land does not waste rainfall.
Water not absorbed by plants or


evaporated into the atmosphere.
is returned to the soil where it
replenishes the aquifer and pro-
vides groundwater for other
uses.
Agricultural land also pro-
vides homes for Florida's unique
wildlife such as alligators, bald
eagles, panthers and wood
storks. Many farms and ranches
have established management
programs to maintain wildlife
habitat.
With agriculture as a corner-
stone of our nation's security
and way of life, America's farm-
ers and ranchers provide the
safest, most abundant and most
affordable food supply in the
world. It's important to remem-
ber, though, that American agri-
culture reaches far beyond the
farm or ranch. It is an industry
that includes 24 million Ameri-
can workers, about 17 percent
of the total U.S. workforce, who
help process, sell and trade the
nation's food and fiber.
National Farm-City Week
strives to increase understand-
ing, cooperation and relation-
ships between rural and urban


residents. As this year's com-
memoration again culminates
on Thanksgi ing, all Americans
are encouraged to thank some-
one who helps make it possible
for you and your family to
enjoy the bounty of our food
supply. It's. a partnership
summed up best whether you
are from the farm or the city as,
"Let's eat!"
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gen-
eral-interest agricultural associa-
tion with more than 144,000
member-families statewide.
There are Farm Bureaus in 60
counties in Florida, where agri-
culture comprises a stable, vital
leg of Florida's economy, rival-
ing the tourism industry in eco-
nomic importance. Headquar-
tered in Gainesville, the
Federation is an independent,
non-profit agricultural organi-
zation and is not associated
with any arm of the govern-
ment. More information is
available on the organization's
web site, http://FloridaFarmBu-
reau.org.
