invasion


investigation


continues
By BRIAN ACKLEY
NEWS @ FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
The Polk County Sheriff's Office is continuing to
investigate a rare home invasion in Frostproof last
week, according to department reports.
As of Tuesday morning, the incident remains
unsolved, police say.
According to PCSO Public Information Officer
Donha Wood, at approximately 12:55 am, on
Friday, an unknown suspect, described as black
male, entered a residence on Chesney Boulevard
through an unlocked rear door. Residents of that
address are 62-year-old Geraldine Denvy and
56-year-old John Harrison.
According to reports, the suspect was approxi-
mately 6-foot to 6-foot-3 man, with a medium
stocky build, black shirt, green pants, and his face
was covered.
Police say that upon entering the residence, the
suspect started looking through the freezer located
in a laundry room just inside the residence near
the rear door. The bedroom and laundry room are
located in the same portion of the duplex style
apartment.
The victims' dog started barking and Denvy got up
out of bed to see why the dog was barking, accord-
ing to Wood. As Denvy was getting out of her bed,
the suspect started to strike the dog and then struck
Denvy in the head with an unknown blunt object.
Denvy yelled for her boyfriend, Harrison. The
suspect immediately went to Harrison, who was still
in the bed, and started to strike him about his head
and body with the unknown object, Wood added.
Police said that during this entire incident the
suspect continually stated "Where is it? Where is
it?"
Wood said the victims stated that the suspect
never elaborated on what "it" was but assume
he meant money because at one time they kept
money in the freezer. Denvy attempted to contact
law enforcement and the suspect fled out of the
rear door, jumping over a fence. He was last seen
running east along Chesney Boulevard.
Emergency medical services arrived and treated
Harrison at the scene for minor injuries.
The investigation is on-going. Anyone with infor-
mation is urged to contact the Polk County Sheriff's
Office at 863-298-6200.
Anyone with information who wants to remain
anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward is
asked to call Heartland Crimestoppers at 800-

Five Frostproof men were part of a
major drug sweep late last week targeting
methamphetamine drug trafficking and
distribution, law enforcement officials said.
A joint investigation involving the Polk
County Sheriff's Office, Central Florida
High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas
Task Force, and the Drug Enforcement
Administration resulted in multiple
federal indictments by the United States
Attorney's Office (Middle District of
Florida) and the arrests today of 15
individuals with Polk County ties.
"This is a great day for Polk County.
Working with our federal law enforcement
partners, we have taken down a major
methamphetamine trafficking organiza-
tion," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said.
"Methamphetamine destroys.lives, drives
up crime, and hurts families, neighbor-
hoods, and our local economy."
He noted that there was cooperation on
many fronts that led to the charges.
"We thank United States Attorney
Robert E. O'Neill and DEA Special Agent


in Charge Mark R. Trouville, Miami Field
Division, for their key role in making our
community safer and working to improve
our quality of life. As always, the credit for
the success of this investigation goes to
the men and women working on the front
lines our Polk County Sheriff's Office
detectives, HIDTA Task Force detectives,
and Drug Enforcement Administration
agents. They make it happen and I am so
grateful for their hard work and dedica-
tion to improving our communities."
As of last Friday, task force detectives
seized approximately 11 pounds of
methamphetamine, 11 guns and more
than $131,000 in cash, according to a
spokesperson.
According to the sheriffs department, the
following Frostproof residents have been
charged, including:
Pablo Barrios, 36, conspiracy
to distribute 50 grams or more of
methamphetamine.
Felipe Barrios, 38, conspiracy to distrib-
ute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine


Meliton Jaramillo, 29, conspiracy
to distribute 50 grams or more of
methamphetamine
Fernando Mondragon, 27. Count
one: Conspiracy to distribute 500 grams
or more of methamphetamine, Count
two: Attempted possession with intent
to distribute 500 grams or more of
methamphetamine
Abraham Espinoza-Perez, 26. Count
one: Conspiracy to distribute 500 grams
or more of methamphetamine, Count
two and count three: Distribution of 50
grams or more of methamphetamine,
Count four: Distribution of 500 grams or
more of methamphetamine.
The indictment charging Pablo
Barrios, Felipe Barrios, and Jaramillo
notifies the individuals that the United
States intends to forfeit $44,540 in U.S.
currency seized on March 5 and $56,020
in currency seized on March 22, which
are alleged to be traceable to proceeds
of the offense, according to the U.S.
Attorney's office.

"How are your kids doing in school?"
That's a question we should all be asking
ourselves. "But wait," you may say, "I don't have
kids in school."
Oh yes, you do, is our reply. They may be the
sons and daughters of friends, neighbors, or even
complete strangers, but their progress affects
you, your community, and your future.
Those kids may grow up to become your
doctors and firefighters, or in the wrong circum-
stances, the bane of your existence. It is up to
each of us to help to motivate and encourage
their progress.
The news that Lake Wales High School is now
an official part of the International Baccalaureate
program was received with applause, and is
one example of how a coordinated locally-
guided educational system is enriching our city.
Motivating students to do their best requires a
steady diet of positive reinforcement.
It was especially encouraging to see that the
Lake Wales Charter School leaders are wise
enough to use the achievements of high school
students to help motivate kids at area elementary
schools. The News recently featured extensive


Our Viewpoint
coverage of how students from the high school
ROTC honor guard, Highlander Band, and state
champion basketball team, among others visited
with younger students and shared their suc-
cess stories. These are ideal role models for the
younger students.
When a colorfully-dressed Scottish dancer
from the Marching Highlanders stands before
a group of 5th graders, they get stars in their
eyes. When the beloved former principal of Polk
Avenue Elementary, Donna Dunson, comes
to tell students about the IB program she has
helped to bring to the high school, they want to
be a part of it.
The philosophy of education today has
changed dramatically from recent decades, and
not every change has been good. Mandated
achievement tests such as FCAT have resulted
in many schools focused on "teaching the test"
rather than the complex set of skills necessary
to set young feet on a good path toward future
success.
Motivating our young people to be the best


they can be is the result of dozens, and perhaps
hundreds, of interactions with the community,
with adults and peers, and the encouragement
each of us can help to spread.
Not every student will be a doctor, scientist, or
lawyer. Many will find their fulfillment as fire-
fighters, landscapers, painters, or auto mechan-
ics. Yet all of them will learn things in school that
will help carry them through life with a positive
attitude about what they can achieve if they ap-
ply themselves. They will see the results in their
friends, and they will find the role models that
lead them forward. These things don't fit neatly
into test questions.
Hundreds of adults volunteer for area schools,
and are rewarded by the interest and attention
of their young charges. They are often im-
pressed at the way that their developing minds
quickly grasp new concepts, and respond to new
challenges.
So next time you are chatting with a friend or
co-worker, introduce a new element into the
conversation by asking them "how are your kids
doing in school?" You might be impressed by
what you learn.


Letters to the editor


Reconsider fireworks move


I agree with the main point of
the recent editorial on the City
Commissioners vote to move the Fourth
of July celebration to the Eagle Ridge
Mall.
The "urgency" Mr. Gallup felt was
necessary to bamboozle the commis-
sioners into a rush vote was totally
uncalled for and gave them no chance
to review this option or to hear from
their constituents.
However, I do not support this
decision and have no intention of
attending the festivities if they are held
at the mall. Mr Gallup stated, "This is
an opportunity to mirror what Haines
City does," and went on to say he had
requests for the city to do more.
Excuse me, but Haines City's celebra-
tion is held at Lake Eva, and by moving
this event to the mall totally does not

More rec op
I read with interest the survey results
regarding recreation opportunities in
Lake Wales. A municipal swimming
pool has been a long held dream of
local citizens.
However, the reality of not only the
initial cost, but the ongoing cost of such
an amenity seems to be out of reach.
A few years back a group of citizens,
after doing their research, came before
the city commission with a plan for
zero depth water features that could be
put in playgrounds at nominal cost.
The water used would be recirculated
after being treated.
Everyone from babies to the elderly
could enjoy getting wet without any

downtown business owners.
Mr. Gallup's concerns should be for
the economic development of Lake
Wales, not Eagle Ridge Mall.
What sounds better: spending the day
at the lake, mingling with family and
friends who reside in and are proud of
Lake Wales, having the chance to sit un-
der a tree and marvel at the lake, stroll-
ing through town or hanging out on
hot pavement, risk getting heat stroke
with no shade in sight, and spending
your money to benefit the mall instead
of our local business owners?
The city commissioners definitely
need to reconsider this decision and
do what is best for Lake Wales and the
residents.

Lutton: Not the question I asked


Nowhere during the meeting did I ask
s idea. what the City Attorney was getting paid
iter and are or questioned any billings, people read
into my question what they wanted.
ts in the I asked if he could let us, the com-
cooled missioners, know if we ever ask him
have good, to do something that is outside of his
contract/retainer.
couldn't Why would I ask this question on
reas, but at my first night sitting in the seat? The
the water answer is the old adage "Lead by
example." If the city commissioners
would offer are requesting that all the city staff
ety and tighten their budgetary belts, we, the
Idren in the commissioners should be the first
ones to tighten that belt. The commis-
Pat Turner sioners have very little direct contact
Lake Wales with spending money, but we can


inadvertently spend money by ask-
ing for tasks outside of city staff's job
descriptions, which includes the city
attorneys contracted scope.
I also disagreed with the need for
meal reimbursement and mileage to
attend Ridge League of Cities meetings
when all the city departments are asked
to cut their budgets again this year. The
out of pocket cost should be less than
$25 per month. I probably spend this
much just doing Scouting activities and
I don't get paid for that leadership job.
This City Commission has to once again
set the example.

trying to build the Gospel House within
the past decade, but finances have been a
major setback. They used to receive funding
from the states, but ever since the recession,
they have been receiving fewer and fewer
donations.
Gravley first learned of the project during
a summer mission trip in 2010.
'As he gave us a tour of his half-finished
home, I immediately felt compelled to
do whatever I could to help him finish it,"
Gravley said.
After returning to Southeastern University,
both he and his roommate brainstormed
ideas to raise money. They glanced at the
world atlas on their wall, and immediately
thought of going on a cross-country bike
trip. Neither of them had attempted such
a feat, but they were determined to do it
anyway, praying to God for guidance and
receiving support from family and friends.
When summer arrived, the two flew to
Alaska with bikes donated to them and
started their journey back home. Neither of
them was prepared for what was ahead.
"We didn't have any idea what we were
doing," he said. "I wasn't a cyclist. He wasn't.
We didn't know anything about bikes. We
didn't know anything about it. But we got
through it. I remember being on the plane
to Alaska, not knowing how to change a tire.
We were pretty ignorant about everything.
And the first day, it snowed on us. And we
weren't prepared for that. But man, we
got through it, and it was an incredible
experience."


The two of them faced any and every
challenge imaginable from wild animals to
bad weather; nonetheless, they loved every
moment of the experience and persevered
through it with their faith in God and with
the help of the occasional stranger.
"It was an incredible experience where we
really got to see God provide for us, because
through many times, we nearly ran out of
supplies, and miraculously someone would
stop and give us more out of the blue or it
would begin to snow and someone would
approach us and give us a place to stay,"
Gravley said.
The toughest challenge for him was
sitting on a bicycle seat for hours on end,
which was literally a pain in his behind.
"Other than the mental aspect of the mo-
notonous movement of your feet pedaling
hours and hours every day the worst part is
the soreness of your behind," he admitted.
"Last sumrner, because we couldn't shower
much, and we were in hundreds of miles
of wilderness, the hide of my skin would
be rubbed away and would actually bleed
sometimes. It was pretty painful."
The two made it back to Florida within
two and a half months. Both of them man-
aged to raise $8,000 nearly half of what
they needed to help build the Gospel House.
To them, though, the tour had been less
about the money and more about the mes-
sage behind it.
"Our primary goal is not to raise funds but
to share the reason we were compelled to
raise the funds in the first place, and that's
the saving love of Jesus Christ," Gravley said.
"That's something we feel very strongly
about, and its the motivator behind it all.
It's all a matter of the original act of love and
that's what Christ did."


Gravley has already raised nearly $10,000
for this trip, and hopes to reach his overall
goal of $20,000, which he's fairly close to
achieving when he combines the funds
from last year.
He has yet to determine how he and his
friends will return home to Florida once
they reach Maine, but he claims he will
figure out a way once he gets there. When
he does return to Florida, he and seven
friends will fly to Uganda and help build the
Gospel House.
Gravley will graduate Southeastern
University this December with a biology
degree with an emphasis on agriculture. He
plans to help others in developing countries
learn howto farm. He sees this as an op-
portunity to not only help the less fortunate
provide for themselves, but also share with
them the gospel message.
"There's literally dozen of examples or
analogies of agriculture which God uses in
the Bible to help illustrate the concept of
heaven, to illustrate his love, to illustrate any
aspect of who he is, from sowing seeds to
tilling the soil to the growth of a plant to the
actual harvesting of a plant," he said. "It all
correlates with the gospel."
Gravley dreams of embarking on a
worldwide bicycle tour, possibly after
college, an excursion he claims would help
raise funds for Bible translations. If he ever
does attempt such a tour, it would probably
start in Europe where he will trek through
the continent to Asia, then sail to Argentina
where he will cycle through South America
all the way back to Florida.

trip and how you can support him, visit his

CURE
FROM PAGE 1A

booth went to the Federation of Christian
Sportsmen. Their booth had a memory
wall with the pictures of eight loved ones
who lost their lives to cancer.
As dusk turned to evening, the park
soon basked under the spotlights set
on each comer while booths lit up with
candles, lanterns, and electric lights.
By 9 p.m.,;the park fell into darkness
for the Luminaria Ceremony, the time to
remember those who are either fighting
cancer or who have lost their lives to it.
The spotlights shut off. The generators
were silenced. The booths switched off
their lights. And all became quiet. The
only light came from the full moon above
and the luminarias lining the street
and sidewalks below. Each candle bag
donned the name of someone fighting
cancer. The ones with angels were of
those who had passed away.
The ceremony opened with 'Amazing
Grace" played on the bagpipes by Becky
Blackwater. It then became a moment of
quiet reflection as participants walked
a lap in silence to honor those they had
lost or who were still fighting.
The event continued with music,
contests, games, and other activities
throughout the rest of the evening and
the following morning until noon.
So far, this year's Relay for Life man-
aged to raise over $17,000, though money
will continue to be raised until August,
American Cancer Society Frostproof
Community Representative Caellan
Curtis said.


Letters to the editor



What's next? Move Pioneer Days or the Christmas parade


What does the Fourth of July mean to
you? Maybe many things, but one thing
is freedoms. Another was to be sure
of always knowing a traditional family
event at the shores on Lake Wailes com-
plete with the mere beauty of glowing
fireworks over the Lake Wailes.
Instead, a group of people decided
to take your voice and vote quickly


to remove the fireworks display to an
asphalt Eagle Ridge Mall.
Where is the beauty or family unity in
that? I am deeply concerned if they can
do this, what is next?
No art show because the lake takes
a beat down, or Pioneer Festival, or
Christmas Parade? Events for longer
hours than a mere day of family fun


at the Lake Wailes for which this city
is named after. Please remember not
everyone can afford to walk to the mall,
but most of even the unwealthy people
in this city can walk to the lake. As for
the mall, and in the words of a song by
Aron Tipton: I quote, "Stand up
for something or you'll fall for any-
thing." (He is a country star singing at


the mall).
Please be heard, tell your commis-
sioners this is wrong, they were wrong
to vote our family tradition away.
Remember them when it comes time
to vote for new commissioners. Let
freedom ring, your freedom of speech.

Leave our town's traditional celebrations alone, please


I read in the Lake Wales News that our
city commission has voted to move our
Fourth of July celebration and fireworks
to the mall. I am not happy. Hear my
story.
I came to Lake Wales March 1, 1940. I
was 8 years old. It was Dec. 7, 1941, that
we heard the-news on the news on our


car radio told us the news.
The Japanese had bombed Pearl
Harbor and destroyed many of our
Navy.
We were mad as hell at the Japenese
and we already hated Hitler and
Germany.
The next day Congress declared war


on both. W6 were at war in the Pacific
and in Europe. We were united for war.
War was real. The Fourth of July and
Memorial Day are days of celebration of
us winning the war.
In the four years, the industrial might
and the military won two wars, Europe
and Japan. In those wars thousands of


our young men and women died. Two
were my neighbors. I played coronet
in the band and played TAPS at many
friends funerals.
Please leave our traditional celebra-
tions in Lake Wales around Lake Wailes.

Not everyone ought to vote


It is a staple in the newspaper busi-
ness especially left-wing newspapers
- to exhort people to vote at every
election.
Conservatives, however, are more
interested in quality than quantity.
That is, they are more interested in
having fair elections than in driving
everyone to the polls including people
who are ineligible to vote.
Last year the Legislature passed a bill
that tightened up the election laws in
Florida, to lessen the chance of fraud
and to save money. Among other things
it reduced the number of days but not
the number of hours that early voting
is allowed.
The ACLU, the League of Women
Voters and other liberal groups went
bonkers, demanding investigations,
filing lawsuits and citing "studies" from
George Soros-funded outfits that churn
out whatever the billionaire needs in his
quest to suppress capitalism, which is
his main goal in life.


Lloyd Brown

There's nothing magic about early
voting. It has never been difficult to
register and vote in Florida, whether
by showing up on election day or by
absentee ballot.
Making it a bit easier is fine but not
if it makes it easier to cheat as well.
It also is expensive to keep polls open
for days on end just to have a few voters
wander in from time to time.
Liberals cleverly tagged this law, and
similar onesin other states, "voter sup-
pression" laws.
Balderdash.


It would be more accurate to label
them "fraud-suppression" laws.
We hear the same kind of hysteria
about requiring photo identification at
the polls.
Odd. When a citizen of Mexico goes
to vote in his own country, he has to
show photo ID. If he sneaks over the
American border, he probably can vote
in an American election without one.
You have to show a photo ID to get
into the Department of Justice building
in Washington,, D.C., but the head of
that department doesn't think it is fair
to require one to prove you are a citizen
and registered voter when you go to the
polls to elect a president.
If it is so onerous, why did an election
reform commission headed by Jimmy
Carter endorse photo IDs?
Leftists at the fringe not only oppose
fraud protection but want to make it
a requirement for people to vote. Big
mistake. If forced to vote, the silent
majority probably would sweep liberals


out of office.
The truth is everyone does not need
to vote.
It is a choice, not an obligation or a
civic duty.
There are people so fed up with
politicians that they choose not to vote
because they don't believe it makes a
difference. As far as they are concerned,
one pol is as bad as another.
Here's an example of someone who
doesn't need to vote: A non-citizen
who doesn't know one candidate from
another, or anything about the issues in
the race, but has been given a sample
ballot marked with choices, a fake ID, a
$20 bill and a ride to the polls.
Maybe if we could suppress voters
like that, we would select better people
for public office.

business nearly 50 years, beginning as a

You can't miss Twice Is Nice
Consignment and Boutique. Just look
for the shop with the bright green door.
Twice Is Nice opened three weeks ago,
replacing Pocket Savers Consignment.
The previous store opened in
February, but then store owner Mary
Milton turned it over to its new owners
a month later due to personal issues.
"I didn't have time in my schedule
to give the store my full attention, and
so I wanted to sell it to someone who
would give 100 percent of their time to
it," Milton said. She is finishing up her
teaching degree at Warner Southern.
-The store's new owners, Larry and
Bobbi Dixon, bought the store after
finding it on Craigslist. The two have
been considering opening their own
business after moving from California
four years ago.
"My husband and I both have outgo-
ing personalities, so retail business is a
perfect fit for us," Bobbi said.
Bobbi had originally worked in the
mortgage and title business and as the
assistant vice president of a clothing
department in California. After mov-
ing to Florida, she became the office
manager of a roofing company where
she occasionally volunteers when not
working at the store.
She and her husband renamed the
store Twice Is Nice and refurbished it to
make it look more like a "cute boutique"
rather than like an old-fashioned
consignment shop.
"Some consignment shops look like
thrift stores where everything is just thrown
together," Bobbi said. "We try and mer-
chandise our things so it looks inviting."
Gone is the children's clothing area


as the store will focus more on men
and women's clothing and accessories.
The former men's clothing area is being
rebuilt as a dressing room.
The store features a vast array of mer-
chandise including homemade jewelry
by Bobbi and her mother, hand-woven
scarves and shoulder bags by local Ruth
Plant, and pictures by local artists.
As with the previous store, consign-
ments of gently-used clothing without
tears, rips, or stains are accepted.
Consignments take 60 percent of the
original sale price and offers consigners
40 percent.
Prices range for 50 cents to $150.
Pants and shirts range from $3 to $6.
Clothing donations are accepted. A
percentage of the proceeds go directly
to Wounded Warriors, a U.S. Army
program that assists severely injured


PHOTOS BY JAMES COULTER
While still accepting good consignment items, the store is being set up to be as much "boutique"
as clothes store.


service men and their families through
their recovery.
"My husband is an ex-Marine who's
adamant about taking care of our
military," Bobbi said. "They do a lot
for us, do a lot for our country, and
Wounded Warriors seems like a good
charity that does a lot for the veterans
coming back. We felt it would be a good
contribution."
Bobbi hopes more people become
aware of the store, as she claims many
customers were unaware it even existed,
yet she has high expectations for it.


"I think once we have some advertis-
ing out there and folks start realizing that
we are here, I think it's going to be real
successful," Bobbi said. "Hopefully we
will have so much business and mer-
chandise that we will have to expand."
Twice As Nice Consignment is located
at 215A Scenic Highway in Downtown
Frostproof. Hours are Tuesday-Friday
from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sat. from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

An orange and a dream



Iconic home near Frostproof had humble beginnings


By KATHY LEIGH BERKOWITZ
KLBERKOWITZ@LAKEWALESNEWS.COM
This is the first of a three-part series
about the history ofIrwin Arthur
Yarnell, his contribution to Lake Wales,
and later, the home he built for his wife,
La Casa de Josefina in Highland Park.
Look for part 2 in Saturday's edition of
The Lake Wales News.
Funny how an orange in a Christmas
stocking can change one's destiny.
Such was the case for Irwin Arthur
Yarnell, one of Lake Wales' early land
developers, having founded The
Southern Land Company, soon after
visiting Central Florida in 1907.
Historic accounts note that as a lad,
every year Yarnell received a single
orange in his Christmas stocking, "and
he dreamed of a day when he would be
able to eat all the oranges he wanted,"
according to Highland Park Deputy
Clerk Blair Updike.
Yarnell was born on a farm in
Francisville, Ind., on March 16, 1876, to
Samuel G. and Rachael Andrews Yarnell.
At 4 years old, his family moved from
Minneapolis, Minn., to South Dakota,
where his father worked in real estate
- and loans, and his mother wrote for a
Minneapolis newspaper "about life on
the frontier with the Sioux, among whom
her son found friends," notes Updike.
Yarnell was thus captivated by Native
Americans, and by oranges.
Family history says that later in life
he made arrangements for his friend
and philanthropist August Heckscher
for a New York City exhibit of Lone
Wolf's artwork.
Wolf was a famous painter.
An Indian trading post in Pierre, S.D.,
however, was where Yarnell started his
career.
At 19, he moved back to Minneapolis
and lived with his uncle, whom Updike
notes was a Givil War veteran. Yarnell
took a position at a State Institution as
Savings bookkeeper and by age 32, was
vice-president of the same.
Updike notes Yarnell was a Mason
and a member of the Scottish Rite
and of Zuhrah Temple, Ancient Arabic
Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.
Then Lillian Fairchild came into his
life, in 1898. She was the bank presi-
dent's sister, and the two married.
Together, they had a child, Doris
(Peter) in 1901, but Lillian passed away
just two years later.
Yarnell and his brother-in-law,
Harold E. Fairchild, remained friends
throughout their life.
But Yarnell did have another destiny,

and that was his marriage to his second
wife, Josephine A. Sullivan.
Josephine was born Feb. 12, 1886, in
Fernbank, Ohio, to Lawrence and Mary
Ellen Page Sullivan, who "was a tal-
ented artist and whose paintings would
later hang in the Casa," according to
family history.
Josephine spent her childhood in
Richmond, Ohio, the daughter of a
comptroller for the Chesapeake and
Ohio Railroad. On April 30, 1908, she
married Yarnell, in Richmond Va.
It was here that he became a bank
vice-president, and was self employed
in farm land sales.
Yarnell and his brother-in-law visited
central Florida in 1907, and seeing the
great possibilities for development,
created The Southern Land Company.
Initially, The Southern Land
Company sold grove and residential
tracts, but it didn't take long for Yarnell
to shine in residential property sales
and learn how to run a citrus business.
Among the many things he did, he
developed ways to protect citrus during
Florida's noted freezes.
He became a banker and enabled
many, some of whom had never even
owned land, to buy their first homes.
Perhaps remembering his beloved
Christmas stocking, and that solitary
annual orange, he planted trees -
citrus trees everywhere.
Updike notes Yarnell had been
quoted as saying "It's a big thing and
thrills the imagination this seeing a
new country, singularly blessed with
a wealth of natural resources, come to
life and yield its treasure to the labor
and ingenuity of man."
The Citrus Control Board of the State
greeted him as their first president, and
some time later, Yarnell also became
the vice-president of the National
Grape-fruit (sic) Board.
Among the organizations who
enjoyed his membership were the State
Beautification Committee, the Florida
Historical Society and the Florida
Horticultural Society.
Known as a charitable man whose
"politics were in line with those of Abe
Lincoln," according to family notes,
he donated generously to those who
needed it, and paid $1,000 for the first
box of citrus picked from the Heckscher
groves in support of the Heckscher
Foundation for Children in New York.
In addition to his daughter, Doris,
Josephine and Yarnell had a son and
four daughters, Virginia (1910-1929),
Irwin Jr. (Bubs) (1914-1930), Josephine
S. (Brees) (1916-1989), Jane S. (Connelly)

Yarnell is also locally known for de-
veloping the community of Hesperides
east of Lake Wales on State Road 60.
St. Anne's Shrine (Ste. Anne du Lac), a
Canadian Catholic settlement, was de-
veloped by him, which was a small lake
surrounded by a road and a footpath,
with homes built around the upper rim.
Later, this same design would be
repeated in Highland Park.

By JEFF ROSLOW
NEWS @ FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
Polk County School Board mem-
bers said the money it collects in
impact fees is too important to give
it up for anything, even if it means
attracting new businesses to the
county. In fact, keeping it rather
than doing what the county com-
mission has done with business
impact fees is more likely to help
attract businesses than giving it up.
Impact fees the school dis-
trict collects, which School
Superintendent Sherrie Nickell
said is a small percentage of its
$1.4 million budget, goes to fix and
upgrade schools. Without construc-
tion money coming from the state
it is the only money the school
district has and that could help
attract businesses and people here,
members said.
"The goal of the county commis-
sion's dedication to the moratorium
is to hopefully attract business
investing in the county. Whether or
not that has been successful, no-
body has an answer. The question
is whether the school board can do
that too," County Commissioner
Bob English said.
School Board Chairman Hazel
Sellers replied, "My thought on this
is when people move in they're very
concerned with the schools. We get
a reaction every day, well regularly,
of disapproval with the shape of the
schools."
The Polk County Commission
and the School Board met together
last Thursday afternoon to discuss
issues they could work together
on and a moratorium on impact
fees was one of their topics.
Commissioners started a morato-
rium on business impact fees in
2010 and have a workshop on May
15 to decide whether to continue or
stop it.
Right now no one in the county
knows the effect it's had, but they
hope to learn that at the May 15
workshop. The moratorium is
scheduled to end on July 31.
Recently, Frostproof has been
debating the similar issue when a
church asked that its impact fees be
waived. Discussion among the city
council members was split. One of
the mitigating factors in that case
was that churches, once built, do
no pay ongoing ad valorum taxes,
meaning impact fees is one of the


only ways a muncipality can recoup
some of its own costs associated
with the project.
The county, officials indicated last
week, think the impact fee waiver
has helped.
"We have looked at it in a couple
of ways," County Manager Jim
Freeman said. "We have focused
on commercial (impact fees) and
looked on was it greater than prior
(to the moratorium)? The answer is
somewhat anecdotal, but we cer-
tainly heard it has played a role that
has helped. So it is difficult to find,
but we're pulling it all together for
the May 15 meeting."
To illustrate what kind of shape
the schools are in and what has
to be done to them to make
them more useful, Assistant
Superintendent of Support Services
Fred Murphy explained what items
are "on the shelf" the board can-
not get to now. He said there is a
significant need for high school
replacement in Mulberry. The
school cannot handle the technol-
ogy that is available to schools,
he said. Southwest Middle School
needs upgrades and Bartow High
School is another aging facility that
needs help.
"We know what we need to do but
with the lack of PECO funds we had
to shelve it," he said. PECO (Public
Education Capital Outlay) funds
come from the state.
"Without PECO funds what can
you use?" Commissioner Melony
Bell asked.
Murphy said there really wasn't
anything else to use but did suggest
a referendum to voters to increase
taxes but there would be a limit on
it, using the example that it could
last four years.
Since 2005-06 the school district's
intake of impact fees has dropped
89 percent, from $32 million to $1.4
million last year.
Mark Grey, the assistant superin-
tendent of business services, said as
far as reserve money in the impact
fees, "We're not holding back any
impact fees. It's not spent but it is
all budgeted."
Murphy added that there are
also 800 portables that have to be
replaced.
"With the portables is there a
safety concern or is the Polk County
School Board required to change
them?" Commissioner Sam Johnson
asked.

Although fees are typically waived for homes being built by Habitat for Humanity, like this Frost-
proof home going up on F Street, the waiving of impact fees for other projects is a hot local topic.


"Both of them. We live in Central
Florida and it's the home of light-
ning, wind and tornadoes," he said
pointing out the danger of a por-
tables. On that he had agreement
from both boards.
"I taught in a portable for one
whole year and when those (weath-
er) warnings come the learning
stops and it becomes a child care
center," Commissioner Ed Smith
said.
Johnson, also a former teacher,
showed the same concern about
portables. Illustrating how badly


the schools need to be upgraded,
Sellers said, "As a former school
teacher, I've taught in closets with
the stuff still in there. Under a
moratorium, I don't know where to
go."
She added, to answer English's
question of whether the school's
.impact fees be included in the
county's moratorium, that the
school district using that money
could help attract business.
"A quality education is part of
it so I think the two play hand in
hand."

Frostproof Pitcher Josh Baber helps his own cause by tagging out this runner at home. Unfortu-
nately, there weren't enough of these types of plays, as Berkley Prep defeated the Bulldogs, 6-1.
Berkley Prep improved to 15-11 on the season, and Frostproof ended the year at 16-9 in falling in
the Class 4A playoff game.


Frostproof manager Jeremy Byrd paid a first inning visit to the mound in trying to quell a four-
run uprising by host Berkley Prep in Class 4A baseball playoff action last week. Berkley scored
four runs in the inning, aided by three errors, and the Frostproof offense could only manage
three hits in falling, 6-1.

LW chamber award night has Frostproof flavor as well


By STEVE STEINER
NEWS @FROSTPROOFNEWS.NET
As often is par for the course, the 54th
Annual Citizen of the Year Awards Gala,
put on by the Lake Wales Area Chamber
of Commerce this past Friday, May 4,
and held at the Lake Wales Country
Club, was no exception, filled with vary-
ing amounts of humor, humility and in
one instance, near tears.
The event was the opportunity for the
Chamber and its members to recognize
and publicly thank those individuals and
organizations who through the years
have toiled tirelessly and without fanfare
to improve Lake Wales and the lives of
those who live in the community.
Altogether there were five awards. The
first three were to recipients already an-
nounced. The Community Leadership
Award, presented by Andi Brannon, with
Citizens Bank and Trust, went to Kevin
Respress. In her address, she summa-
rized a key element of why Respress was
being honored.
"Management is doing things right," she
said. "Leadership is doing the right thing."
A devout Christian, Respress down-
played anything he had accomplished
and quoted Matthew 5:16. "Let your
light so shine before men, that they
may see your good works, and glorify
your Father which is in heaven," said
Respress, who humbly acknowledged
the contributions he had made but
emphasized that "God gets the glory." -
There was some good-nature banter-
ing when Paul Gerrard of CenterState
Bank presented the Public Servant of
the Year Award to Lake Wales Fire Chief
Jerry Brown. Just as Brannon before him
when she introduced Respress, Gerrard
gave a brief biography of Brown and
lauded Brown for his devotion to Lake
Wales and its citizens. He closed by
touching upon a key trait of Brown.


"The one that stands out to me is what
it means to be fire chief," said Gerrard
of Brown. Not only did Brown love the
people of Lake Wales, the fire chief "loves
his men and women."
When Brown made his acceptance
speech, he joshed Gerrard.
"He hurt my feelings," said Brown, with a
twinkle in his eyes. "He didn't say anything
about being handsome." His joke brought
about rounds of laughter.
On a serious note, Brown expressed his
gratitude to the citizens of Lake Wales.
"When you serve a community that is so
thankful, they make it so easy," he said. "It's
wonderful serving the community."
Like Respress, Brown spoke of the
great honor of serving, not just his
fellow man, but serving his savior,
Jesus Christ, and God. He added that
he planned on doing this even after the
day he eventually stepped down as fire
chief. "I just want to serve Him and do
whatever He wants me to do."
Attorney Angela Pulido, of Lilly, O'Toole
& Brown was given the privilege of present-
ing the Community Service Organization
of the Year Award to Max Linton, otthe
Mountain Lake Community Service. The
award, Linton said when receiving it, came
on the organization's 25th anniversary
He added that while over the past
quarter-century the organization has
helped numerous agencies and entities,
it has done so without fanfare, which is
part of the reason the Chamber award
came as a surprise when he was first
informed it was being so honored. Linton
was joined by immediate past president
Kim Betler in accepting the honor.
The distinction of presenting a new
award the Community Champion
Award -went to Scott Smith, CEO of Lake
Wales Medical Center.
"As we pay tribute to Lake Wales, we
would be remiss if we didn't pay tribute
to a citizen of Polk County," said Smith,


Lake Wales Medical Center CEO Scott Smith
(left) presented JD Alexander with a new Lake
Wales Area Chamber of Commerce award, the
Community Champion Award.

"Senator JD Alexander."
While the number of accomplishments
were many, Smith repeatedly empha-
sized one in particular, of Alexander's
passion for education. Not only had
Alexander supported Polk State College,
as well as led the crusade that estab-
lished the creation of Florida's 12th
university, closer to home, Alexander was
instrumental in bring the International
Baccalaureate program to Lake Wales.
"I'm honored to honor you," said Smith
and Alexander wended his way to the
podium. Clearly, Alexander admitted he
was caught unawares.
Following Alexander was his wife,
Cindy M. Alexander, last year's Citizen of
the Year recipient.
"The 2012 Citizen of the Year is a fifth-
generation Floridian," started Cindy M.
Alexander. He also is a Lake Wales citizen,
a graduate of the University of Florida. He
also worked with the same company 29
years. Also, he was a past president of the
Lake Wales Chamber of Commerce. But his
volunteerism didn't stop there.
"This person has served on every
board in Lake Wales," she said, and
added he also served on a number

Year, poses with 2012 Citizen of the Year
recipient Jerry Miller.
of Polk County Boards and currently
led the Central Florida Development
Council as its board president. With that
she called out the name of Jerry Miller.
"The first thing I want to say is, I'm
humbled," said Miller. At times as he
spoke, his voice choked and he struggled
to maintain composure. "I'm honored and
I'm humbled to get this award."
In addition to being named Citizen of
the Year, Miller was further surprised when
members of his family- especially his
four sons appeared.
"This is quite a night," he said. "My four
boys are here."
Not all of his acceptance speech was
wrought with heartfelt emotion. He shared
how earlier he had told Chamber Executive
Director BettyWojcik how relaxed he felt.
It was the first time in years he was not
involved in any aspect of this or other
chamber ceremonies and events.
"It was relaxing," he said, "But it (also)
felt weird."
One of his last remarks was how
honored he felt that it was Cindy Alexander
who had made the presentation, and
lauded the contribution the Alexanders
had made throughout the years.
