LEARING- A LESSON


HENRY POATES
Times Correspondent

A unique program was per-
formed for students and fac-
ulty of South Sumter High
School Thursday, April 14.
Schools have in the past
had lectures and films on the
subject of drunk driving.
Students are implored not to
drink and drive.
Sumter County
Fire/Rescue has come up
with a real attention-grab-
bing program that is hoped to
make a dramatic difference
in preventing drunk driving,
especially among young driv-
ers. Lt. Robert Doremus
spearheaded the program for
Sumter Fire/Rescue, which
pulled together a multi-
agency force to perform this
very realistic program.
South Sumter High
School provided the loca-
tion for the program.
Fire/Rescue personnel
"staged" three vehicles in a
mock wreck on the track,
which surrounds the high
school football field. The
students and faculty were
presented with an unob-
structed, bird's eye view of a
very realistic simulated
- crash as they entered the
grandstand. The scenario of
the program was a three-
vehicle crash, with two
fatalities and ten injured, as
a result of drunk driving.
Along with the three real
"crash" vehicles, members
of Fire Explorer Post 2911
were "made-up" or
moulaged as injured pas-
sengers and were realisti-
cally placed inside of the
vehicles. All ground emer-
gency vehicles were staged
in the parking lot behind the
f stadium, out of view of the
spectators.
After the students and fac- i
ulty were seated in the
grandstand, Sumter
Fire/Rescue, Station 11
Assistant Chief Brian
Tucker, who is also a law
enforcement officer, began
the program with a brief
description of the scenario


and what was about to take
place. The program was to
include actual extrication of
victims, simulated treatment
.of victims, and transport of
the injured. Police made
"arrests" of the drunk driver
and other youthful intoxicat-
ed passengers and
bystanders.
The program began with
an actual "page out" from the
Sumter County sheriff's dis-
patch, which was broadcast
over the PA system. The first
vehicles to arrive on the
"sceiie" were two Bushnell
Police cars with lights flash-
ing and sirens blaring. The
two officers began a quick
assessment of the scene and
radioed dispatch-givingi
information to incoming

After the exercise, personnel participating in the demonstration were applauded by the stu-
dents and faculty for a job well done.


All of the activities, which included extrication and removal of "victims," although slowly and carefully performed to prevent
injury to victims and rescue personnel, seemed to hold the attention of the spectators. All of the same procedures used for
this demonstration are used on real wreck scenes.


Hundreds of acres to change from agricultural to commercial


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

' More development is slated
for northern Sumter County
*ith' a group of land use
changes approved Tuesday by
the Sumter County
commission.
The board approved three
Comprehensive Plan amend-
,ents that will change hun-
dreds of acres of agricultural
land into commercial devel-
-.pment and homes. Proposals
for the tracts scattered north
.f Wildwood and the outskirts
,f Oxford include single fam-


ily.residences, "quad" condo-
miniums, a three-story hotel
and more.
While some of the proper-
ties considered by the board
re-kindled the ongoing debate
about housing densities in
Villages vicinity, all the pro-
posed amendments won
board approval. In the
process, developers made a
few concessions about density.
The board first discussed
the application of the Power
Corporation which was seek-
ing to change 90 acres on the
northwest shore of Lake
Miona into a 700 unit mixed
use development with what


planner Greg Beliveau
described as "quad" condo-
miniums and about 20,000
square feet of commercial
space.
The property was formerly
home to Camp Universe and
was briefly active as a reli-
gious retreat. The tract is
south of C.R. 472 and off the
east end of C.R. 114.
. The proposal drew criticism
from residents of the neigh-
boring Village's subdivision
arid concerns by commission-
ers both centering on traffic.
Joan Runyon specifically
complained about the ongoing
stream of trucks on Rainey


Drive and the noise that it
brought. Commissioners said
that staff, residents and the
developer would have to meet
to seek a solution to that prob-
lem.
But, attorney Steve Richey,
representing the applicant
along with Beliveau, said that
the project would not con-
tribute significantly to noise
on that road.
The Power project will have
access off C.R. 472 and an
emergency vehicle access off
C.R. 114.
The 1,400 to 2,000 square
foot units would start at about
$199,000, Beliveau said. The


project would also have a $1
million clubhouse. Streets
would be owned and main-
tained by the condominium
association and would be
gated.
While only a few residents
addressed the board,
Sumterville resident Keith
Allen's comments were almost
a repeat of those he had for
another land use change last
week
He had recently read a
newspaper article about
urban sprawl not paying for

Center Hill


council


takes tour

of plant

BOB REICHMAN
AND AMANDA MIMS


On Saturday, three Center
Hill Council members were
scheduled to tour a cement
plant in Suwannee .County
that may be considering
building a similar facility in
Center Hill.,
But information about the
proposal is hard to come by
and some residents are cast-
ing a concerned eye at coun-
cil members for taking the
tour in the first place.
Center Hill Mayor Ralph
Barry said Friday that he is
not planning on touring the
facility.
"I don't have any plans to
go," Barry said. "I agree that
this tour doesn't send a good
message."
Barry said no proposals
have been submitted to the
city and no annexation
requests have been submitted
for a proposed site.
He said city officials have
checked with the state attor-
ney's office about taking the
trip together.
Barry said the council
members can go on the trip as
long as they do not discuss
any aspects that could involve
decisions about the facility.
"They can go and take the
tour and look"
Barry said he's already
receiving calls from residents
who are concerned about the
issue. "Citizens I've spoken to
aren't in favor of such a plant
or a facility."
Barry, however, said at this
point, he doesn't have much
information about the pro-
posed facility.
City Council Member Elsie
Ramsey, who planned to go on
the tour, said she didn't see
anything wrong with going,
since it was discussed at the
April 5 meeting.
The tour, however, was not
listed on the meeting agenda.

itself, he said. He cited impact
fees for homes and parks and
recreation in Orange and
other neighboring counties
along with increasing solid
waste fees in those areas as
the result of urban sprawl.
"It's not paying for itself,"
Allen said. "You know that, I
know that and these people
out here know that"
Richey argued that it's not
urban sprawl because it is
contiguous to an urban devel-
opment boundary. He also
stated that the. development
would have better than 45
percent open space because
of the project design.
Commissioner Michael
Francis and Richard
Hoffman both objected to the
proposed density. Francis
suggested that a maximum of
four units per acre would be
more appropriate.
Richey eventually offered


to set the maximum density
at 6 per acre, then later to 5.5
units per acre.
While commissioners cal-
. culated, someone came up
with a 486-unit maximum for
the project That seemed to
be what the board settled on,
although that is slightly less
than the 5.5 unit per acre
density that was discussed.
The official action was in
two parts. Commissioner first
voted on the amendment.
That was approved with
Commissioner Jim Roberts
casting the one dissenting
vote.
On the accompanying zon-
ing change, Roberts and
Commissioner Randy Mask
cast votes against the propos-
al.
Some of the other amend-
ments brought short debates
and one drew hardly any
comments.
These are the projects:
The John and Merle
Peterson property is a 60-
acre tract on C.R. 101 imme-
diately south of Quail Point
and north of an 80-acre par-


eel recently amended for
extensive residential devel-
opment.
The amendment sought for
the Peterson tract was for
high density residential on 20
acres and medium density on
40 acres. That request was
changed to medium density,
Development Services
Director Robbie Rogers said.
Engineer David
Springstead, representing
the applicant, said that a
maximum of 200 hundred
homes was proposed for the
tract which would provide a
density of 3.33 home per acre.
Both Francis and Hoffman
said they appreciated the
reduced density.
Commission Chairman
Joey Chandler said he want-
ed the various developers of
this project, the neighboring
project to its south and the
Villages to come up with a
solution to thwart the traffic
that would be coming off U.S.
301, across C.R. 104 and down
C.R. 101 to get to the Wal-Mart
store planned for C.R. 466.
The vote was unanimous


for .approval of the amend-
ment, and the accompanying
zoning change.
Next on the list was the
Lake Andrews Preserve, a
project involving 60 acres of
commercial development
and 38 acres of low density
residential.
The residential would be
two homes per acre with the
Wildwood providing water
and sewer utilities, Richey
said.,
The property is at Oxford,
just west of U.S. 301 and is on
the north side of C-466.
There was almost no com-
ment Chandler asked about
stormwater management to
protect the lake.
Richey said it would be
contained with a swale sys-
tem' that would prevent the
runoff from reaching the
lake.
The amendment was
approved unanimously The
zoning application is still in
process for this project.
The commission consid-
ered a somewhat different
project -a few miles further


west of Oxford.
The Jamie and Janet Zito
property in the vicinity of the
planned new 1-75 inter-
change on C-66 is proposed
as the site for a new three
story hotel, restaurants and
some "condo" type short-'
term rental units.
It involves 38 acres in the
southeast quadrant of the
anticipated interchange.
Richey, also representative
on this project, said there
would be no impact on local
schools and that the short-
term (one week or less)
rentals would also be subject
to the county's tourism tax.
There was some discussion
about how developers would
deal with the wetlands on the
tract. Beliveau said that the
100-year flood line would be
modified and that larger
stormwater retention areas
would be ,provided to com-
pensate for that.
Bushnell area resident
William Costner asked who
would be paying for widening
of C-466. Commissioners said
the Villages were paying for


the improvements up front
and recouping the expense
through impact fees.
Roberts had a different
concern about funding road
improvements.
"I hope you are watching
the legislature," Roberts said,
referring to his warning earli-
er in the meeting that there
are bills pending that could
end the county's transporta-
tion impact fees.
"I don't a developer is going
to put that money out for aA
interchange if he can't b'e
reimbursed," Roberts said.
Again, the vote was unan -
mous on both the amendment.
and the zoning change.
While the board is' done
with most of these for th@
time being, the amendment
process did not end with thfs
hearing, according to Rogers.
The approved amendment
will be sent back to thb
Florida Department 6f
Community Affairs for final
review to determine if tlU
changes comply with thl
Comprehensive Plan, she
said.

Early Thursday morning, April 14, vehicles were "staged" for a
mock wreck in front of the grandstand to afford all of the ,[
South Sumter High School students and faculty a close-up 3
view of the program. '


The exercise began with an actual dispatch from the Sumter County Sheriff's Department patched into the PA system for all to
hear. Two Bushnell Police Department officers arrived with lights and sirens, followed by the first Sumter County Fire/Rescue
truck from Bushnell Station 11. ... .... a, ,. ,

Morgan.
"She was always working on
making things better," he said.
She's also an inspiration to
kids, who are willing to work
hard for her when it comes to
school projects.
Howton is a favorite teacher
at the high school and has
been known by many of the
students for several years.
This is her first year at the
high school, but she spent the
previous 20 years teaching at
South Sumter Middle. That
means that some of those
same high school juniors were
in her classes at the middle
school.
An English teacher, she's
very involved with student
activities. As a matter 'of fact,
it was her work with, the
school prom that put her in

Howton was returning from
Lake Receptions with a bor-
rowed truck and trailer when

the collision occurred. The
location is a catering and ban-
quet facility that students
used for their school prom.
Morgan said she had years
of experience coordinating
the eighth grade dances at the
middle school, so it was,
Howton that took on coordi-
nating the high school prom.
He said the students enjoy
working with her and putting
together the event.
"They assemble it here and
move it over there."
They put together the deco-
rations for their international
cities theme and put every-
thing together for the
Saturday night event,
On Saturday, Howton, stu-
dents and other adults had
decorated the hall. She
unhooked the trailer so she
could travel the immediate
area and pick up some other
things they needed.
As the prom came to an end,
chaperones and others were
on hand, discussing how
smooth things had gone and
what a great job Howton had
done. At about that time, "She

thing that will be voted on."
she said.
City Clerk Diane. Lamb

members, Doug Cook and

proposed property is owned

adding that he and some of
the others had gone ahead,
while she was talking to the
facilities owner.
In the meantime, Assistant
Principal Mike Wood stayed
behind to supervise a student
who was waiting to be picked
up.
The trailer, full of prom dec-
orations, detached when
Howton pulled on the main
highway. She pulled the truck
around and shined her lights
on it,
Wood came out and an off-
duty firefighter and his son,
who stopped as they were
traveling by. tried to direct
traffic.
-Wood and ,the others
attempted to get the pick-up
truck driver to slow down as
he entered the area, but were
unsuccessful. The truck hit
Howton's truck, and then rico-
cheted to hit Howton. The
driver appeared to slow for a
second and then drove away.
On Monday, as authorities
'search for the driver, Howton
was in recovery and is expect-
ed to be on a ventilator for the
next 24 to 48 hours.


The ventilator was needed
because. of injuries to her ribs.
Morgan said they don't want to
take a chance on her not being
able to breathe correctly.
. While she recuperates, they
worked to put the teens. at
ease about her situation. He
said the word began to filter
out when they were on their
way home.
They have grief counselors
available, but he pointed out
that older students handle
things a bit differently than
the younger kids.

vehicles to arrive on the scene
were two fire trucks and a
Brush/Rescue Truck from
Station 11. Firefighters quick-
ly assessed the medical needs
of the "victims" and triaged
the scene to identify the most
severely injured. The silver
-vehicle had four occupants
and they would need to be
extricated or "cut-out" of the
wrecked vehicle. The red car,
on its side, had one severely
injured occupant who was

pants of the red car were
dead. The van had five occu-
pants with injuries ranging

van were "drunk"

Treatment was given to the
injured and less serious
patients were transported by

remove the "bodies" of the
two fatalities to the funeral
home.
Air transport of the two
most severely injured
patients was requested and
the first to arrive was Bayflite.
Bayflite transported one of
the critical patients from the

To the cheers and clapping
of the student spectators,
police officers "arrested" the

them in handcuffs and seated
them in their squad cargo.
Several other "intoxicated'

_,A convicted sex offender;

Kenneth Larry Nickerson
Increased concerns
in community
Instances like this and
recent child abductions* and
murders have prompted citi-
zens to look for information
about sexual offenders and
predators.
Caruthers said he and oth-
ers there have been getting a
substantial amount of phone
calls about Sumter's sex
offender list, especially since
the sexual assault and murder
of 9-year-old Homosassa girl
Jessica Lunsford in February.
John Couey, who reportedly
confessed to her murder, is a
convicted sex offender who
failed to register.
On Sunday, David Onstott, a
convicted sex offender, con-
fessed to the murder of 13-
year-old Michelle Lunde of
Ruskin, Fla.
There have been many
more children in the state
murdered and sexually
assaulted by people already
convicted of sex crimes.
In light of events over the
last year, the Sumter Sheriff's
Office is looking into improv-
ing their method of checking
up on these convicted sex
offenders. Caruthers said
recently his office has been
increasing the number of vis-
its to sex offender residences
and verifying addresses.
"Since the last couple of
cases, there have been more
inquiries from the public
about sexual offenders and
sexual predators. The
Sheriff's Office is trying to let
everyone know about those
people who are on the list,?"he
said.
Although the visits have


increased, the department is
going to wait and see what
changes to legislation are
made before they change
their official policy Currently,
the policy in Sumter is what
state law requires, which is
one visit per year
Checks on addresses are
good,. but don't offer much
help in cases like the one in
Bushnell this week.
Nickerson left Michigan with-
out notifying authorities, and
moved to Florida without reg-
istering.
Brannen said the registra-
tion laws are helpful, but
aren't the answer "If these
people decide to become
invisible, you can disappear
in this country."
Brannen said law enforce-
ment needs the public's help
in keeping a watchful eye in
their communities.
"Let's trust our instincts
when we're dealing with peo-
ple," he said. "If something
about a person makes you
uncomfortable, there's proba-
bly a reason."
"Naturally don't let your
children go anywhere you're
not comfortable with," he
said.
Brannen said to keep lines
of communication open with
children, so if there is a prob-
lem they will come forward.
He also said that in
instances where a child is
accusing an adult of inappro-
priate conduct, there are
always people who think the
child is lying. He said that
children lack motivation to lie
about sexual misconduct and
to treat all accusations seri-
ously, no matter who the
accused happens to be.
"Society is obligated to take
care of our children, By doing
that, we have to listen to our
children," he said.
Sexual offenders in
Sumter County
In Sumter County, there are
81 names on the list of sexual
offenders and predators, but
that number fluctuates regu-
larly and includes a small per-
centage of offenders cu rrently
detained at the state and fed-
eral prisons in the county.

The mystery of the rising Part B
premium continues to baffle
the minds of many Americans.
The Medicare Part B monthly pre-
mium in 2001 was $50 per month, an.
increase of $4.50 from the previous
year.
The Part B premium for
2006 is estimated to be
$87.70 per month. This rep-
resents an increase of about
$10 per month from 2005.
and a total of a $21-increase
during the past two years,
without question the highest -
two-year dollar increase of
the 40-year program.
Have you saved a few
bucks? Well, starting in 2007,
this premium will be Daniel
increased by an adjusted Rohan
amount based upon your
income.
If you, as an individual, have an
earned income, including Social
Security of:
$80,000 per year, you will pay an
additional 10 percent
N $100,000 per year, an additional 25
percent
$150,000 peryear, an additional 40
percent
n $200,000 per year, an additional 55
percent.
The three years beginning Jan. 1,
2003,'your Part B premium will have
risen almost 33 percent, an increase


of one-third every three years.
Prepare for the future: Eitheryou will
pay for Part B, commonly referred to
as, doctor's, insurance, or doctors-
will.The Medicare Modernization,
Improvement and Prescription Drug
Act of 2003 (MMLA) will actually pit
patients against their physi-
sgi cians for the cost of Part B. If
physicians do not receive an
annual Part B increase, they
are presently slated for a
;4 number of years of decreas-
es, decreasing at a rate of
More than 4.5 percent per
year. So, if physicians
receive increases, you will
pay more in premium, and
R vice versa get it?
This is not only bad medi-
cine for both physician and.
patient, but it is patently stu-
pid!
Your Part B premium covers physi-
cian services, hospital outpatient
care, durable medical equipment and
other services outside hospitals. In
2001, it was estimated that some 39
million beneficiaries opt in for this
voluntary coverage.
This Center for -Medicaid and
Medicare Services (CMS) is quite dis-
turbing. One must understand that the
same government agency tells us its
future and projected cost on an entire
Medicare population of 41 million.

receive Medicare subscribe to Part B.

more than a decade. So, good folks,
tell,me: If, in 2001, the CMS, then

Twist in agricultural development BALL

continued from


Under a proposal considered last Tuesday by
the Sumter County Commission, developers
would be able to increase agricultural land
densities up to three homes per acre


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

There could be a new twist
n development of Sumter
county rural land coming in
he next few months.
red last Tuesday by the
umter County Commission,
developers would be able to
increase agricultural land
densities up to three homes
ier acre instead of the now
me home per five acre or
ne home per ten-acre densi-
ies.
The change in density
allowances would come from
t text amendment to the
otmty Comprehensive Plan.
1he board last week decided
o "transmit" the proposed
changes to the Florida
department of Community
Affairs (DCA) for review by
hat and other state agencies
The amendment would not

Rogers told the commission


close look at what is happen-
ing with clustered develop-
ment in south Lake County
when considering this issue.
"Deny it like you did in the
fall," Allen said.
But, Greg Beliveau, a prin-
cipal of the LPG Urban &
Regional Planners Inc., said
that the proposal was "fined
tuned" to limit the density.
It was his firm that last
year had unsuccessfully
sought the text change
involving a proposed project
that would create about 65
building lots out of a 235-acre
tract along the
Withlacoochee River.
With this amendment,
parcels would have to be at
least two acres in size and
there would be no "packing"
of the uplands, Beliveau said.
Also, a prospective devel-
oper could only calculate for

ject tract, he said.
On a 100-acre tract with 25
acres in uplands and 75 acres
in wetlands, the density
would be the same as one
home per five acres,
Beliveau said.
"It puts nature first,"
Beliveau said.
Commissioner Randy
Mask, noting that it "looks
okay," asked to hear more
from Allen.
"It just lets people put
more homes into an acre,"
Allen said. "It has a similar
impact as in south Lake
County."
Commissioner Jim Roberts
said he likes the provisions
that would save large trees
and provide for advanced
septic systems.
"I think most residential
objects have been
addressed," he said.
Commission Chairman
Joey Chandler said he had
looked around the county for
likely tracts and couldn't find
any properties that would
qualify for the maximum one
to three density.
Roberts moved to transmit
the proposal to DCA. Board
approval was unanimous.

"How do I decide which funeral
home to call when the time comes?"

Aside from the requirement that all funeral homes be,
licensed by the state, some basic questions you might ask
when selecting 'a funeral home include: Are they flexible
enough to handle your specific needs? Are decisions made
locally or from an out-of-town corporate office? Are they
full service? Do they sub-contract services such as
cremation or do they provide these options on-site?
Everyone has different priorities and questions about
funeral pre-planning. We. invite your questions and we
will respect your priorities. Please call us for a no cost, no
obligation, no pressure appointment to get the facts on
how you can benefit from funeral pre-planning.

BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

The Rebel returned this
weekend, as more than 300 peo-
ple set out to see an original
musical presentation written by
local talent Bob Clark.
Clark and his wife Arlene
have an extensive music back-
ground and spend their spare
time writing music and drama.
Members of the Lake
Panasoffkee United Methodist
Church, the Clark's pulled the
drama team together for two
performances.
With a master's degree in
music, Clark wrote "The Rebel"
over the summer and based the
story on the biblical story of
"The Prodigal Son."
With a western twist, Clark's
"Fair Weather Friends," and
"Rebellion" gave the crowd
more than enough to laugh
about as they watched the story
of the young man who asked for
and received an early inheri-
tance so he could see the world.
But Hank, played by Corey
Nelson, got the money only to
squander it away with some
questionable characters played
by Danielle Beville, Tina Burt
and Colin Cash.
Nelson and his real life broth-
er Merel, were cast in the role of
brothers for the play Merel
plays Hank's older brother
Frank
Clark himself took on the role
of Hamisunbi (Ham-he-soon-be)
a shady character with swine-
like tendencies and a connec-
tion to the fair weather friends.
With no money left, Hank
found himself dining with swine
and dreaming about going home
to ask for a place among the
hired help. But when Hank the
rebel returned home, his father
offered him far more than a
place in the bunkhouse.
Pa, played by Charles Melin,
welcomed his son home, giving
him new clothes and even host-
ing a party with the fatted calf -
after all, his lost son had been
found and come home. And
while Pa rejoices over Hank's
return, he also has to deal with
brother Frank's jealousy, but in
the end it's a celebration for the
entire family.
The performance was put on
by the Lake Panasoffkee United
Methodist Church drama group.
They hosted a dinner theater on
Saturday night, at 5 p.m. with
chicken wings and barbecued
beef, homemade potato salad,
baked beans and cornbread.
The kitchen was as authentic


as the stage, when it came to
western atmosphere guests ate
off of pie plates and dabbed with
red checkered napkins.
While a team of dedicated
actors, singers and creators
went to work, the scenery cred-
its went to MerryAnne Melin.
A master with imagination
and paint, Melin created a barn
and Ubetcha saloon interiors
taking folks back in time.
Joan Tuttle tickled the ivories
on an authentic aged piano and
Caleb Melin played trumpet for
tips in the saloon.
While the fair weather friends
fled Hank in poverty and
Hamisunbi refused to let him
dine with swine, it was "Big Bad
Rooster" that stole the show.
The hammy fowl took to the
microphone and crowed as a
reminder to jealous brother
Frank to listen up. Big Bad
Rooster was played by Tommy
Sue Money.
And why did Clark pick "The
Prodigal Son" as his subject?
"Well, I had always struggled
with 'that Parable. My under-
standing of it was very nebu-
lous," he said. "I really didn't
think I understood what Jesus
was trying to say." He said it was
a matter of trying to understand
the different characters.
"Particularly Frank," he said,
noting the similarities between
Frank and other people -
burned out, but continuing out
of a sense of duty, rather than for
the love. As for the presentation,
Clark said, "I was very, very
pleased with our people in
terms of doing their very best to
bring it to fruition."
While Saturday night was sold
out, Clark said he would have
liked a few more people for the
Sunday matinee.
Throughout the entire event,
the Cowhand Band kept up the
music and shared their thoughts
on all the happenings, bringing
their own laughs to the crowd.
Other performers, prop work-
ers and kitchen staffers includ-
ed Mary Kay Brewer, Chuck
Wiese, Kristen Cabbage, Carlie
Nelson, Molly Melin, Joana,
James, JB, John and Diana Goff,
Ellen and Jack Weldon, Rhonda
.McClain, M.L. .Marsh, Tina

GraceNOTES 'Aunt Bea' Berneda Smith turns 96


A friend called recently to
ask if I knew anything
about raising my hand.
"Like wanting to be picked as
a game show contest-
ant?" I asked.
"No, like when
they raise their
hands at church,"
she said. "I don't do
that aiid I'm not sure
I could. But if I'm
missing out on some-
thing, I'd like to know
what it is."
I told her that wor-
ship comes in a vari-
ety of forms and NAI
expressions, and that KEN
hand raising isn't --
"better" than non-
hand raising; hand raisers aren't
more spiritual. I also told her
that it has a lot to do with cul-
ture.. If you grew up.in a hand-
raising church, or say if you're a
hand-raising sort of person in
your everyday life, it's just what
you do when the music starts.
I've seen hand raising at rock
concerts.
I've also seen regular church
hand raisers snarl and snipe at
each other out in the church
parking lot, yet as soon as they
get inside and that first chorus
starts, their eyes close and their
hands go up in the.air as if on
autopilot
Hands up or down isn't an
indication of how spiritually
attuned you are or how engaged
you are in your worship, I told
my friend.
This brings the discussion to
the real question: What is wor-
ship? Is it an attitude? A state of
mind? Is it an activity- "praise-
andworship" swaying,
singing, eves closing, feet stomp-
ing?
Is it as I remember as a' child,
sitting straight-backed with
hands pressed together and
thumbs folded, trying, like
everyone else in the pews


I


N


around me, to affect a posture of
holiness? Is worship ritual and
liturigal grandeur, pomp and
ceremony? Or is it something
else entirely?
*I"" I believe worship
is infused in every-
thing we do, ordinary
and not, inside the
church accompanied
by piano and organ
as well as at home
with our kin. It's
what happens when
the Word of God is
Q alive and active in
and through every
4cY cell of our being and
4EDY our responding with
--9 a wholehearted
"Yes!" to the God
who made us.
That might make our hands go
up in the air, but it might not It
might make us weep, or it might
make us sit still and think
Whatever worship inspires us to
do, it should, however, never be
devoid of God. That sounds ele-
mentary, but it happens.
Kathleen Nbrris, .author of
'Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary
of Faith," writes about attending
a worship workshop that was
dry as dirt. As the "worship
facilitators" approached the
lectern, briefcases in hand, their
faces had the same expression
Norris recalled seeing on her
mother's .face "when she ,had to
give one of us kids castori oil."
She describes singing songs of
psychobabble gobbledy gook
about who knows what and how
she craved refuge in the long-
ago hymns of the faith, saying.
they often act as icons for her, "a
window pointing toward the
holy."
She concludes, "When litur-
gists try to retain too much con-
trol over worship and use it for
didactic purposes, it becomes
sluggish, like a bad poem, with
weight of ideas and the gravity
of political idealogy."


Worship need not always be
foot-stompin' lively, but it must
be sound theologically.
Last Friday night I attended a
worship concert The band a
bunch of scruffy young guys -
played old hymns set to new
music, centuries-old words and
electric guitars.
. What made it worship-inspir-
ing was the richness of the
words we sang: "What can wash
away my sin? Nothing but the
blood of Jesus. What can make
me whole again? Nothing but
the blood of Jesus.
"0 precious is the flow that
makes me white' as snow; no
other fount I know; nothing but
the blood of Jesus."
I remember singing and think-
ing, "Yes! This is it! This is wor-
'ship; this is what life's all
about!"
It wasn't just emotion,
although it stirred my emotions.
It wasn't the music, but the
words of the gospel "nothing
but the blood of Jesus."
It's as Norris starts out in her
chapter on worship: "Worship is
primary theology.' It's basic -
God inhabiting human hearts,
making them clean and whole
and healed. It's gospel, pure and
simple.
So, Joan, if you're reading
this, here's how you know if you
have worshiped: The question is
not, "Have I raised my hand?"
but "Have I humbled my heart?"
If the answer is yes, then you
haven't missed out on any-
thing.

ROBIN EDDINS
Times Correspondent

In 1909, Cartier opened a
jewelry store in Manhattan,
Charles Strite was given a
patent for the pop up toaster,
the French government
ordered the Eiffel Tower to be
torn down, Robert Peary
reached the North Pole, and
on April 12 of that year
Berneda (Spencer) Smith was
born.
Although born in Flint,
Michigan, Berneda spent a
good portion of her life in
Florida attending church
many years ago in Pedro when
electricity and telephones
were not available.
A surprise birthday party in
her honor was held at her
home on April 12. Held as an
open house, guests arrived
through out the afternoon to
congratulate "Bea" and honor
her as a friend.
When one guest wished her,
a happy birthday, Bea respond-
ed, "This will be my last one!"
After many gasps and
admonishments from other
guests Bea smiled a devilish
grin and said, "Well, I won't be,
96 ever again."
Mrs. Smith was a World War
II veteran from 1943 to 1947
and was stationed at
Homestead in the Women's Air
Corp when it was destroyed by
a hurricane in September
1946. She was staying in Ocala
with her sister when she


here in Wildwood. She doesn't
find fault with anything or any-
one. She's been in the local
women's club, an associate
member of NARVRE."
Mrs. Smith has also been a
past Worthy Matron in the
Eastern Star and is an active
member of the First Baptist
Church of Wildwood.
Not a stranger to adversity,
Mrs. Smith has overconie a
broken back from a diving acci-
dent, serious stomach prob-
lems, a broken hip, her second
husband passed away in 1968,
losing her son to complications
of diabetes and a daughter in a
tornado.
Both her caretakers, Lauira
Schaffer and Betty Barlow, are
thrilled and honored to spend
time with her. Laura stays with
her during the week and Betty
assists her on the weekends..
Both chimed simultaneous
"She's just wonderful! SI
prays for everyone she know.
She even prays in her sleep'"s
Her local involvement aid
love of children lead her to
become '"Antie Bea" to more
than 50 youth in the area.
When asked what her secret
to long life is, she first
answered, "I haven't any." But
after a moment's thought she
responded, "Live close to God
and Country"
Her friends and family say
that her being social also con-
tributes to her longevity but
one thing for sure in these
parts, Berneda Smith is well
loved.

Workforce comes to Sumter


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer


If you're looking for a job,
get on board.
Workforce Central Florida's
Mobile Express is coming to
Sumter twice a month, making
one stop in Bushnell and one
in Wildwood.
Inside the big red and white
bus, visitors can look for jobs,
create resumes, apply for
unemployment and acquire
skills in some Microsoft Office
products.
The bus made an all-day
stop in Bushnell on Thursday,
April 14, where 13 job seekers
came in to take a look. Grant
Knowlton, manager of the
Mobile Express, helps visitors
with everything from printing
their resumes to searching
through the thousands of jobs
in the Workforce database.
They can also search else-
where on the Internet in other
job banks using 11 worksta-
tions, which have computers
and printing capabilities.
Previously, jobseekers and
those applying for unemploy-
ment had to go to the Leesburg
One Stop Career Center.
The bus isn't just for job
seekers, either. One employer
who was there at the bus's first
stop in ,Bushnell said he's
been using Workforce for five
years and calls the Mobile


Grant Knowlton, Mobile Express manager, left, and an employ-
er, Les Singleton of AAA in Ocala, spend a day aboard the
Workforce Mobile Express and await job seekers on the bus at
the Bushnell Community Center.


Express "a great tool."
Les Singleton, ofOcala AAA,
said over the years he's found
quality employees through the
organization.
"I like the Workforce job
fairs. They've been very help-
ful for me," he said.
"The workforce people go
out of their way to find
employment for suitable can-
didates," he said. "I would rec-
ommend any future employer
in Sumter County to get with
Workforce." I
For employers, Workforce
offers testing in Windows,
Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
Access, and Outlook for poten-


tial employers and a private
interviewing room.
Knowlton said it is often
possible for job seekers to
obtain an immediate inter-
view on the bus when employ-
ers are present
The Mobile Express is
scheduled to come to the
Bushnell Community Center
on the second Thursday of the
month from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. and in the Wildwopd

A B RIEF LESSON ABOUT

Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union.

(And why you don't have to be a teacher to join.)







84 Buying a car. Saving for a home. Planning retirement. These are the tests in

life eveirone needs to be read) for. 0 So allow us to tell Nou a few things that

these just don't teach you in school, starting with the difference between banks

and credit unions. If sour money's in a bank, the profits on that money go to

stockholders. At a credit union, profits ;are returned to members. This explains

why members of Suncoast can get a new or used car loan for as low as 4-.75%

APR'. It's why our high-yield certificate accounts earn up to 4.80% APYv

arnd only require a balance of $1.000. And why "free checking" is really

free checking. J In 193+, teachers chartered our credit union with the

philosophy of helping one another. Since then, we've expanded the criteria

for membership beyond school employees. Now, employees of many local

businesses, hospitals, cities and counties, and people 55 or older can join.

Immediate family members are eligible as well. So it's possible you could

become a member too. Call 800-999-5887 or visit joinsuncoast.org

to find out more. A'ier all, there's no telling what you could learn.

Wildwood High School teens charter TARS group


Photo by Brenda Locklear
Vice-Chairman Matthew Livingston signs the charter, as teacher Shanna Smith, director Rhyan
Metzler, treasurer Dustin LoRusso and state committeewoman Mary Todd stand by.


There's a brand new group
of TARS at Wildwood High
School these days. No not
sailors, but rather Teen Age
Republicans.
After a study of politics and
parties, the teens took steps to
form a brand new organiza-
tion and signed their charter
on April 8 with State
Committeewoman Mary Todd,
State Committeeman Don
Burgess and Field Director
for the Republican Party of
Florida, Rhyan Metzler.
Taught by teacher Shanna
Smith, the students have been
learning about political par-
ties in the United States gov-
ernment.
As they learned, they began
to form their own connections
with those parties, opting to
actually charter a TARS
group. Officers for the
Wildwood group are:
Secretary Kayla Johnson,
Chairman Travis Collier, Vice-
Chairman Matthew
Livingston and Treasurer
Dustin LoRusso.
Students varied in their rea-
sons for following the
Republican Party from the
way their teacher taught poli-
tics in the class to the recent
presidential election.
One of the students said
they definitely felt Bush, a
Republican, had better views
on certain subjects.
Collier said his Republican
choice was his belief in moral
values.
"Their "beliefs are my
beliefs," he said.


He also sees that as less gov-
ernment, more individual.
The students have already
taken part in collecting toys
for children in need and plan
to earn money for future ven-
tures in learning more about
government and politics.
One of the things that cre-
ates a challenge for building
on political education at the
school is that students don't
have American Government
until their senior year, accord-
ing to Smith.
She said the Wildwood stu-
dents can remain members of
the TARS group until they
turn 19.
They'll be working on sever-
al fundraisers in an effort
experience more in politics.
That includes a trip to
Tallahassee, where they can
actually see government in
action.
State Field Director for the
Republican.Party of Florida
Rhyan Metxler was on hand
for the signing of the charter.
The party was founded by
Abraham Lincoln and cur-
rently, the two largest TARS
groups in the country are in
Florida and Georgia, accord-
ing to State Committeeman
Don Burgess. ,
He pointed out the connec-
tion between all political par-
ties in the United States, but
said there are differences in
philosophies, the way party
members think and the way
they choose to support gov-
ernment.
"This is a great Democracy,"


Burgess said, pointing out that
it's so great because groups
equally stand up and voice
what they believe in.
He said the, last election
was a perfect example, with
candidates and parties toe-to-
toe.
Republican representatives
also pointed out the official
creation of the group, noting
that organizations are not
allowed to use the word
Republican in their name
unless they have received a
Republican charter.
Johnson said she based her
choice on agreeing with the
views of the Republican Party.
Smith said students moved
out and did the groundwork to
determine their party selec-
tion.
Their charter contains 10
articles of stipulation. That
includes the age limits
between 13 and 19 to their
bylaws pertaining to endors-
ing candidates, but among the
most important may be its
purpose "To bring young
people into the Republican
Party and to provide an
opportunity for them to find
political expression and
recognition; To foster and
encourage the activities of the
Republican Party and to pro-
mote its ideals; To collect,
analyze, discuss, and dissemi-
nate information concerning
political affairs and political
philosophy; and To advise,
coordinate, and promote the
activities of Teen Age
Republicans."

The Southwest Florida
Water Management District is
encouraging people to log
onto its web site to take the
Watershed Pledge..
The Watershed Pledge was
created to encourage people
to make a commitment to pro-
tecting their watershed.
Making simple changes in and
around their home can posi-
tively impact our water
resources.
A watershed is an area of
land that water flows across as
it moves toward a common


body of water, such as a
stream, river, lake or coast. A
watershed is where people
live, work and play.
"We hope, the pledge will
encourage people .to actively
participate in activities that
will impact their watershed in
a. positive way," said Beth
Bartos, communications man-
ager. "Some of those activities
include conserving water and
maintaining septic tanks."
The Watershed Pledge is
being distributed to more
than 28,000 students who are

Caterpillars


are back

A common spring pest, the
oak tussock moth, is showing
up in many central Florida
yards.
The caterpillars hatch is
spring and feed on the foliage
of hardwood shade trees,
especially oak trees. This
caterpillar can defoliate and
cause a decline in trees if the
damage is severe. Two or
more years of such stress may
cause the tree to die. Keep
your trees healthy and vigor-
ous and the trees will recover
quickly from the defoliation.
The caterpillars' habit of
falling out of trees is unnerv-
ing to most people. Rashlike
symptoms have been report-
ed by some individuals
exposed to repeated contact
with caterpillar hairs.
The mature caterpillar is
about 1.5 inches long with a
red head, yellow to cream
color body and stiff tufts of
black and white hairs along
their bodies. Mature caterpil-
lars spin their cocoons on the
trunk and branches or on a
nearby object. Adult moths
emerge about two weeks later.
The tussock moth usually pro-
duce two to three generations
of caterpillars each year.
Predators, parasites, dis-
eases and unfavorable weath-
er usually keep caterpillar
populations at low levels. In
most cases it is not practical
to spray large oak trees for
these caterpillars. For high-
value trees or extremely sen-
sitive people, use an
approved insecticide such as
Dipel, Orthene, Sevin or
Tempo and follow all direc-
tions on the pesticide label
For more infonnation on
the tussock moth in Florida,
please see the. website: or

Extension office at 793-2728
for additional information.



Safeguards


in place to


protect


from flu

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.-
Bronson today outlined
actions his department is tak-
ing to prevent avian influenza
from striking Florida.
The disease. is a major con-
cern for poultry producers as
,some strains can devastate
poultry flocks, and some
avian influenza strains have
the potential to infect humans
as well as birds.
"We have a number of safe-
guards in place to prevent
this disease from impacting
Florida, andwe are maintain-
ing our vigilance and surveil-V
lance efforts to keep this out,
of our state," Bronson said.
Among efforts being taken
are: .' '
1 Poultry from areas of the
world with serious strains of
the disease are prohibited
from entering the U.S., and all
commercial poultry entering
Florida from other states are
required to have a permit for
entry and must originate from
influenza free flocks.
I The department's Division
of Animal Industry has 35
authorized agents trained to
collect samples, and testing to
detennrmine the presence of
the disease is being conduct-
ed at both the department's
animal health diagnostic lab-
oratories. Samples are regu-
larly collected from backyard
flocks and commercial poul-
try breeding flocks and 35
botanicas in the state partici-
pate in a voluntary surveil-


lance and testing program.
I Veterinarians. veterinary
laboratories and those work-
ing with birds in Florida are
required to report suspected
cases of avian influenza to
Bronson's department.
Quarantine and other emer-
gency plans are in place to
eradicate such a disease as
quickly as possible if avian
influenza is detected.
The last reportable case of
avian influenza in Florida
occurred in a single bird in a
botanica in 2001. Birds at the
location were depopulated,
and the premises were
cleaned and disinfected to
insure that the virus was
eliminated.

We're pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Quality Water Report. We want to keep you informed about the excellent water and services we deliver to you every
day. Our constant goal is to provide to you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve thi
water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source comes from seven ground water welfk"
then the water is chlorinated for disinfection purposes and then polyphosphates are added for iron. The wells draw from the Florida Aquifer. .'
We are pleased to report that our drinking water meets all federal and state requirements. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, pledse
contact the Water Department at: 352-330-1346 or the City Hall Utility Department at: 352-330-1335 ext. 108. We encourage our valued customers to be informed aboaht
their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our City Commission meetings. They are held on the second and fourth Monday's of each month, at 7:QQj
p.m. in the City Hall Commission Chamber at 100 North Main Street. He
The City of Wildwood Water Department routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Exceoj
where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2004. "As authorized and approved ^y
EPA, the State has reduced monitoring requirements for certain contaminants to less often than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are noa^
expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of our data (e.g., for organic contaminants), though representative, is more than one year old."
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level or MRDL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition ofl-a
disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum Residual Disinfectant Level or MRDLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no.known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs dr.c
not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. ..o
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant, which, if exceeded, triggers treatment, or other requirements, which a water system must follow.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. 'o
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) '- one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. V
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the
surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or from human 'activity.
Contaminates that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment.plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater
discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. a'n
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and ca-
also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA
regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contains at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not
necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental
Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer
undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be
particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to
lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline 1-800-426-4791.
Thank you for allowing us to continue providing your family with clean, quality water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply we
sometimes need to make Improvements that will benefit all of our customers. These improvements are sometimes reflected as rate. structure adjustments.
Thank you for understanding.
James Stevens, City Manager

We at the City of Wildwood would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually Improve the water treatment process and protect our water

If you had to choose, which
would you rather be able to
do: Take a shower or water
the lawn? With an ever-
increasing population, water
restrictions are here to stay.
But as homeowners, we can
do a lot to preserve water.
Today, anywhere from 30 to 70
percent of urban water goes to
irrigating lawns, depending
on where you live and what
time of year it is. Changing the'
way we landscape can dra-
matically reduce this water
use.
Many of us have heard
about xeriscaping, an
approach to landscaping that
emphasizes careful planning
and plant selection, efficient
irrigation systems, and liberal
use of mulches to reduce
water needs. Mother Nature
already provided us with a
great model for plant selec-
tion: Native plants. Native
plants are those, which have
been growing in Florida for
thousands of years without
our help. Native plants have
naturally adapted to sand,
muck, intense heat, dry win-
ters, wet summers, down-
pours, cold snaps,. salty air,
wildfires, and tropical storms.
A key point for water-wise
landscapes; native plants
drive on available rainfall. If
they didn't, they wouldn't still
be here.
Take a walk in the woods


and admire the variety of
plants growing, even in time
of drought, with not a sprin-
kler system in sight. "But,"
you think, "I can't use those
plants in my landscape." Why
not? In colonial times, the
royal families of England,
France and Spain hired
botanists to come here, dig up
our wild plants, and take them
back for planting in the royal
gardens. Our native plants
were exotic to them, beautiful,
unusual, and used for land-
scaping the most exclusive
European homes.,
Evidently it's human nature
to be attracted most to the
unusual. As a result, we tend
to overlook the beautiful and
truly extraordinary "ordi-.
nary" plants around us.
Consider the saw palmetto, a
plant that requires no water-
ing once established, suffers
no pests, provides an excel-
lent sound and privacy barri-
er, thrives in full sun and
sandy soil, provides food and
shelter for wildlife (including
the Florida panther, black
bear, and .more than five
dozen of bird species), and is
now used to produce dietary
supplements for prevention of
prostate -problems in older
men. For thousand of years,
Wildlife and people have
been using native plants. As
you learn about this rich natu-
ral history, you recognize that


native plants have a beauty
that extends far beyond the
color of flower or shape of a
leaf.
Your AFNN (Association of
Florida Native Nurseries)
native nursery can guide you
in selecting and planting
natives so that once estab-
lished, your -landscape can
thrive on available rainfall.
And you can save your water
for the swimming pool, the
fruit trees, your vegetable or
herb garden, and a birdbath
or two.
Parts for this article was
taken from a publication by
the AFNN.

extension office in Sumter

S" Sumter Middle School students



.A.,i work on special survey project


South Sumter Middle
School's 7th grade, 4th and
5th period math classes, in
Mrs. Desa Rae Shirley's
room, have been working in
groups for the past several
%weeks on a survey project.
Each group of students had
to choose a company they
would like to represent.
Then each group chose
something to research that
would be of particular inter-
est to their company.
The students also had to
justify their choice.
Each group then worked
on selecting their target audi-
ence, which also had to be
justified.
After all this was in place,
the groups worked on
preparing their scripts.
First they determined
exactly what they would be


saying to each person that
they su reyed. Once com plet-
ed the students broke down
their target audience and
decided how many people in
each group each group mem-
ber was responsible for sur-
veying.
Upon completing the sur-
veying process, the groups
came back together to pre-
pare a PowerPoint presenta-
tion to display their work and
their findings.
Each of the groups created
9 to 11 slides filled with cus-
tom animation and graphics.
Among the slides, the stu-
dents were required to cre-
ate were two slides contain-
ing graphs of their data.
The first ofthese slides was
a bar graph which displayed
all of their collected data.
The second was a circle


graph displaying their over-
all percentage.
To wrap up the presenta-
tions, the groups had to
explain the meaning of all
their data.
All students worked
extremely hard on the pre-
sentations and did an out-
standing job! .;
There were many special
guests who stopped by 'f.
observe the presentations:
among the many were Schoo
Superintendent, Mr. RiRk
Shirley. and school board
member. Mrs. Lind!
Winchester, also many teacf-
ers and invited students werg
in attendance. .
Some of the presentations
are available for viewing

13, test for this weekend's
Fastruck Pro series race at
the Inverness track.
While father, son and a
small crew shook down
Matt's No. 66 Gatorade-
sponsored trucks, a small
crowd of onlookers
watched from the railing -
some clutching cameras,
hats, t-shirts and die-cast
cars hoping for a photo or
autograph from one of
stock car racing's most pop-
ular and most successfiIl
drivers.
Speedway promoter Billy
Hooker said the small
crowd was by design.
"I just wanted to let in a
few of the people who work
for us here and that's it,"
Hooker said.,
"It was nice enough for
him to come and want to
spend some time with us."
Hooker said he received
word of Martin's desire to
visit about three weeks ago,
but didn't publicize it
because he didn't want
Martin owner of 34
career Cup wins, 45 Busch
wins and over $50 million
in on-track earnings to
be swarmed by fans while
working with his son's race
team.
"I know what it's like for
(Nextel Cup drivers)," he
said. "When they get a\\ay,
if there's just a few people
it's more comfortable."

so many winners, it's
see that the level of
tition is at an all-time
nd each week more
ore drivers are added
list of those taking the
mes-elusive trip to vic-
ne.


On average there have
been 145 racers in one race
night. Twice, the number
topped 160, and that's just
incredible.
Why are so many drivers
heading to the racetrack in
Inverness?
For one thing, Sunshine
Speedway closed its doors
last year and many of those
drivers have chosen Citrus as
their new home track.
But what has made the
biggest impact is the overall
racing program Billy Hooker
and Don Cretty have put
together this season.
Most race nights have seen
six to eight divisions compet-
ing on the 3/8-mile oval. Add
in the 140-plus competitors
and what they've got is a race
program that includes the
best variety of action around.
This week, the Corteco
Modifieds and FASTRUCKS
join the local ranks of Mini
Stocks, Hobby Stocks and
Thunder Stocks in heat and
feature action. And as past
events have already proven,
it's going to be a race night
you won't want to miss.

KM BOLLImNGER
Special to the Times

Last year's Late Model
Rookie of the Year, Daniel
Webster, was declared the
winner of the Late Model fea-
ture after the decision to dis-
qualify him and five other
drivers for moving under the
red flag was overturned.
"We're going to go back to
the 28th lap. Daniel Webster is
the winner. Herb Neumann Jr.
will be penalized for the cau-
tion, and Chris Hooker penal-
ized for passing low on the
restart. Everyone else will be
paid accordingly."
That was the message race
director Don Cretty provided
to Late Model drivers at a
post-race meeting concerning
possible disqualifications.
levied under the red flag.
Based on a new rule instat-
ed during the mandatory dri-
ver's meeting prior to the
night's race event, any driver
who moved his racecar under
the red flag unless instructed
to do so by a track official
would be immediately dis-
qualified.
The Late Model field was in
full'contest and running to the
white flag when Mark
Dominique slammed into the
turn four wall. Flagman
Brents Fults dropped the red
flag signaling all drivers on


the track to stop.
While most of the field
yielded to the red flag, Daniel
Webster, Danny Johnson,
Raymond Lovelady, Jim
Smith and Chris Hooker con-
tinued moving through the
first and second turns until
they came to a stop on the
backstretch.
Herb Neumann Jr., the sixth
driver in question, had spun
in the first turn and was par-
tially off the racecourse. Once
he regained his composure,
he returned to the racetrack
before coming to a halt.
All were running in the top
six.
Subsequently, all six were
disqualified based on the rule
and the win was given to Gary
Grubbs. Mike Bell, Tuffy
Hester, Eddie King and
Dustin DesChamps rounded
out the top five.
But with so much at stake
and many questioning the
call, officials decided, to
review the situation at the
completion of the race night
before making the finish offi-
cial.
"We're going to be fair," said
track promoter Billy Hooker
before the official decision
was given.
In a post-race meeting with
the entire Late Model field,
Cretty announced that the win
would be awarded to Daniel
Webster. Danny Johnson was


second, Raymond Lovelady
third, Jim Smith fourth, and
Gary Grubbs fifth.
Chris Hooker was penalized
back to sixth place, Neumann
to the rear of the lead lap if
13th.
As for the disqualifications,
Cretty said, "Had they
stopped on the track and then
took off again, the decision
would have stood."
In Hobby Stock action,
Corkey Miley took an uncon-
tested win over Tommy Smith.,
Mike Wedlick and Curtis
Flanagan ended with an offi-
cial tie at the line.
Brett Jameson won in Mini
Cup Pro action over Rick
Auriemma and Frank Pfister.
Eric Cunningham took the:
uncontested Mini Cups Junior;
feature over Thomas Warnock
and Tylor Payton.
A last chance effort for the
Mini Stock win landed Clint
Foley with the checkered flag,
Michael Lawhorn the run-
nder up. Defending Mini
Stock champion Jim Curry
rebounded from an early race
incident to finish third.
John Chrichton beat
Norman Dismuke to the finish
in 4-cylinder Bomber action.
Kevin Stone finished third.
James Baton led the Super
Stock field wire to wire in fea-
ture action. Richie Smith fol-
lowed in second, Bobby
Taylor third.

Taking control at your



real estate closing


By Charles J. Koialeski
You've finally found the
perfect house, and have
struck a deal with its current
owners. So, after months of
scouring the real estate sec-
tion of the local paper, dedi-
cating Sundays to open hous-
es, checking daily mortgage
interest rates and shopping
around for- lenders, it all
comes down to. this: Closing
Day.
It's an exciting time when
the process feels all but
done; however, issues can
still arise at closing that can
throw a kink into the whole
deal. Misunderstandings
about occupancy dates, the
absence of a current certifi-
cate of occupancy, even dis-
agreements about whether or
not the curtains are staying
can cause unnecessary delay
at closing.
Most disputes at closing
can be avoided by
hammering out a well-
crafted contract
beforehand; in fact,
the more detailed reG
your contract, the bet-
ter chances are for a
smooth sailing at clos-
ing. If your real estate
attorney didn't draw up the
contract, it's a good idea to
have him review it well
before closing. Of course,
'having your attorney review
the contract before you sign
it is, the best way to ensure
your best interests are pro-
tected.
Taking control at closing is
really about being as pre-
pared as possible before the
big day. It's also about being
relaxed and having enough
time to carefully read all the
documents on the table, ask
the necessary questions and
feel confident in your deci-
sions.
Before you close, your
lender will require you to
secure a lender's title insur-
ance policy to protect the
lender against any title prob-
lems. To protect your inter-
ests, you'll need to secure an


owner's title insurance poli-
cy, as well. This secures your
legal claim to the property,
and protects you against title
"defects" legal rights to a
property claimed by some-
body else.
Other paperwork to double
check before closing
includes:
Certificate of occupancy -
Prior to closing, check with
the local building depart-
ment to make sure that
what's on file matches what
they've seen at the house,
thus avoiding potential prob-
lems later. A new certificate
of occupancy is required
after any major renovations,
such as adding new bed-
rooms or bathrooms.

Property liens A seller
may have refinanced or
taken an equity loan and
paid it off, but never gotten a
mortgage satisfaction, which


Faking control at closing i
ally about being as prepar
s possible before the big da


would show up as A lien. In
addition, make sure all open
equity credit lines on your
new home have been can-
celled before closing.
Being prepared for the
amount of documents .and
their scope will also make
the closing go much more
smoothly than if you are
unsure about what you are
signing. Some of the docu-
* ments 'you'll be required to
read, understand and sign at
closing include: -

Payment letter This
paper will dictate your regu-
lar payments for the life of
the loan, and includes a
breakdown of your monthly
payment into principal,
interest, taxes, insurance and
ahy other monthly escrows.
Be sure you understand and
agree with all the numbers


set forth in this document

Truth in lending state-
ment Another important
place to double check num-
bers. Here you'll find an
itemized list of numbers,
including the interest rate of
your loan, its annual percent-
age rate, how much you are
financing and the total cost of
the loan over its life, as well
as a breakout of the amount
financed and related costs
such as points.

Mortgage Among other
things, this document
secures a lien on the house
you are buying to secure the
loan. This means the bank
can foreclose if you default
on the note and take the
house from you.

O*Note When you sign the
note, you are giving your per-
sonal guarantee that you will
pay back all the money
you are borrowing.
Most importantly,
S expect the unexpected
ed when you arrive at the
closing table. You can
always expect a few
faws in the process,
but most problems can
be resolved to everyone's sat-
isfaction. Also, keep in mind
that work on the closing
doesn't end once the buyers
receive the deed to their
property, and it might take
several months to tie up all of
the loose ends.
