County considers solid waste assessments


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

Sumter County
Commissioners on Tuesday
approve a handful of actions
as part of an initial plan
toward alleviating the finan-
cial burden of the county solid
waste-handling center.
SAnd, one of the five deci-
sons by the board could have
%umter residents and busi-


nesses paying annual solid
waste disposal assessments in
the next year or so.
The board decided to
approve five recommenda-
tions presented to them
Tuesday by County Attorney
Randall Thornton. They gen-
erally encompass some of the
suggestions that the commis-
sion has been getting from its
solid waste consultant over
the past several months of
studies, workshops and meet-


ings.
Most recent of those was a
workshop meeting Monday
with their consultant, Mitch
Kessler.
Thornton first suggested
that the board allows county
staff to negotiate with the
legal firm of Nabors, Giblin &
Nickerson, PA., and it's asso-
ciated consulting firm
Government Services Group,
Inc., for an assessment fee
study. The firm is one that has


provided similar services to
the county for fire services
and transportation impact
fees.
The second suggestion was
to authorize Kessler to discuss
two issues with the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (FDEP). The first
of those items is changing the
garbage digester operation
from a three-day to a two-day
process, speeding the com-
posting process.


The other issue would allow
Kessler to work on getting the
Lake Panasoffkee waste facil-
ity properly permitted by the
FDEP as a solid waste trans-
fer station.
The third suggestion was to
direct county staff to begin
searching for funding sources
to make necessary changes
and renovations in the facility.
Thornton's fourth sugges-
tion was for the board to
decide what method the coun-

choices.

Bushnell City Council
approved a controversial
plan to extend city water and
sewer services into
Sumterville despite resi-
dents' efforts to stop it.
Two sides of the plan were
heard at a City of Bushnell
special meeting on Monday,
April 25.
The meeting had to be
moved to the Community
Center because the approxi-
mately 80 people in atten-
dance could not fit into the
small meeting room at City
Hall. and they started lining
up on the sidewalk outside. i
The plan that has so many
up in arms involves running
Bushnell water lines to
Sumterville for businesses
including Thomas Langley
Medical Center, Lake-Sumter
Community College, Sumter
Christian School, and
Hospice of Lake and Sumter.
The lines would run north of
the city along U.S. Highway
301 and over to the medical
and school areas.
Residents had concerns

The state's prosecution of
X-Mart Adult Supercenter
will be allowed to proceed,
after the store's request for an
injunction was denied by a
federal judge last Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge William
Terrell Hodges dismissed a
complaint against State
Attorney Brad King and
Sumter Sheriff Bill Farmer
for the prosecution of the
store's owners being "initiat-
ed by the defendants in bad
faith."
The complaint was filed by
Evgueni Soulaguine, the
store's owner, and 75 Retail
Enterprises, Inc., the store's
parent company.
Shortly after the store
opened last year, an under-
cover deputy entered the

HENRY POATES
Times Correspondent

A little after 4:30 p.m. last
Friday, April 23 a house fire
occurred in Wildwood at 600
Gray Avenue. The blaze hap-
pened while residents were
away,
A neighbor living across the
street reported the fire.
When the first pumper from
Sumter County Fire Rescue
Battalion 3, Wildwood Station
'31, arrived on the scene, heavy
smoke was pouring out from
around the eves of the roof.
Additional Battalion 3 equip-
,ment and personnel from

which was now coming through
the roof of the home.
Firefighters were able to
removed two parrots in a large
metal cage from the burning
building, unharmed.
While some firefighters
engaged the blaze in the ceiling
and roof, other firefighters cov-
ered a large curio cabinet con-
taining collectible dolls with a
tarp to keep damage from smoke
and water to a minimum.
The exact cause of the blaze is
under investigation, but the fire

Among many other con-
cerns residents had were the
storage of large amounts of
chlorine in the area, the
expense of running the
water lines, the fact that peo-
ple in Sumterville cannot
vote for Bushnell represen-
tatives, and whether
Bushnell should be bringing
city utilities into
Sumnterville.
Regarding permitting,
Mayor Joe Strickland said
the city had no control over
what water authorities
would do.
Residents were told the
plan does not involve manda-
tory hookups, but the city
could not make a guarantee
that wouldn't happen in the
future.

At the service were not only
people who have been attend-

faces as well.

the event for the first time, is a
lifelong resident of the area.

to stores that sell adult mate-

The X-Mart side sought to
stop prosecution of
Soulaguine as well as to pre-
vent future searches and
arrests in the store.
The judges ruling, howev-
er, .states "the Defendants
were simply addressing com-
munity concerns, voicing
their own concerns, and
explaining to the community
what they could do within
the law to prevent X-Mart
from selling obscene materi-

participated in egregious
behavior."

Flames break through the roof of the residence at 600
Avenue in Wildwood last Friday. No one was home at th
of the late afternoon blaze. Two parrots in a cage (seen
ground) were rescued, by firefighters, from the structu
unharmed.


But those who would bene-
fit from the extension saw it
as something good for the
area.
Ted Williams spoke on
behalf of Hospice of Lake
and Sumter, saying the pro-
posed water and sewer lines
would help them because it
would save money, but busi-
ness would continue without
the lines.
"If it's there, we'll hook up
to it. If it's not, we will still
serve the patients in, Sumter
County," he said.

Webster teen awarded Purple Heart


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

To look at Don Gavin, you
wouldn't know just months
ago, he was in a hospital in
Iraq, recovering from injuries
he sustained when a bomb
went off under the Humvee he
was driving through Baghdad.
Gavin, 19, an Army private
first class, had injuries to his
back, shrapnel in his left arm,
and experienced hearing loss
from the noise of the explo-
sion, but has since recovered
significantly and regained his
hearing.
In December, Gavin was


awarded the Purple Heart for
wounds received in action.
"It is an honor," said his
mother, Lafreda Gavin, who
works as a reading teacher at
East Ridge High School in
Clermont. "I'm very proud of
him."
Before being injured near
the end of his tour, Gavin
spent the better part of a year
in Iraq. His main method of
communicating with his fami-
ly during that time was
through e-mail, which his
mother says only came every
four to six weeks.
"That was our lifeline,"
Lafreda said. I would e-mail
him almost every day even


though he couldn't read
them."
Late in March, Gavin was
sent to Fort Bragg, where he is.
currently stationed, though
there has been talk of another
deployment to the Middle
East at the beginning of next
year.
On his three weeks of leave
at home in Webster, his family
enjoys every minute.
"I just want to look at him
every day and see that he's
safe," Lafreda said. "But he's
a normal 19-year old. He's just
trying to enjoy his life."
She said he's spent a lot of
time with his friends and his
girlfriend, and even bought a


car.
"Every morning, we have
someone knocking on the
door asking for Don," she said.
"He knows a lot of kids from
(South Sumter) high school
and the neighborhood."
"He's a great kid," said his
mother. "He's a very likeable
person. He loves to have fun."
Lafreda said she doesn't
kndw if he will continue in the
military after the next two
years of his enlistment are
over or decide to pursue
another career.
"He wants to attend col-
lege," she said. "That's the
most important thing he talks
about."


Bushnell meth lab dismantled


" BOB REICHMAN
*: Editor

o A methamphetamine lab
,discovered inside a Bushnell
.iome earlier this month has
been dismantled and two
occupants of the home have
been arrested.
, The lab was found inside
fhe home of David Jennings,.
43, 8904 County Road 624A, on
Friday, April 15.
, Jennings and another occu-
pant of the home, Isaac
Reagan, were arrested on a
-ariety of drug charges.
The lab was discovered
ifter members of the Sumter
.County Special Investigations
Unit were alerted that
Reagan, wanted for outstand-
ing warrants from other coun-
ties, may be at the home,
according to Sumter sheriff's
Lt Bobby Caruthers.
. When officers arrived at the
residence about 3:38 p.m.,
,hey heard persons inside and
saw through a window what
appeared to be a metham-


phetamine lab operating in
the kitchen, Caruthers said.
The officers said they could
smell a strong odor coming
from the home.
When officers entered the
residence, the lab was operat-
ing at the time, Caruthers
said.
Both Jennings and Reagan
were arrested, handcuffed
and escorted out of the home.
Officers took the men to the
sheriff's department for ques-
tioning and then they were
placed in the Sumter County
Detention Center.
Jennings, 43 was arrested
for manufacture of metham-
phetamines, possession of
marijuana and possession of
precursor chemicals. Bond
was set at $21,000.
Reagan, 40, was arrested for
manufacture of methamphet-
amines, possession of drug
paraphernalia and possession
of precursor chemicals. He
was also arrested on warrants
from Osceola County for viola-
tion of probation for posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia


and no valid driver's license
and an Orange County war-
rant for trafficking in
methamphetamines. No bond
amount was set.
Following the arrests, spe-
cial agents of the state Drug
Enforcement Agency along
with sheriff's Det. Louis
Fernandez were called in to
dismantle the lab, Caruthers
said.
"The chemicals used to pro-
duce methamphetamine are
poisonous and potentially
explosive," Caruthers said.
"Special teams are called out
throughout the country made
up of DEA agents for the pur-

They also confiscated a

A Webster man was arrest-
'd last Thursday after report-
edly selling undercover law
enforcement officers illegal
drugs. .
Christopher Brown, 29,
ourity Road 714, was arrest-
,ed for delivery of metham-
phetamines within 1,000 feet
of a place of worship, posses-
sion of methamphetamines
With intent within 1,000 feet
ofa place of worship, posses-
_ion of methamphetamines


*within 1,000 feet of a place of
worship, possession of mari-
juana and possession of drug
paraphernalia,. ;, ..,
He,. was., played, in; ,the
Sumter County ,Detention
Center with bond set, at
$91,000.
Undercover officers of the
Sumter County Drug .Task
Force went to Brown's resi-
dence asking if they could
buy methamphetamines,
according to sheriff's Lt.
Bobby Caruthers.
"He took them to a small
shed in the back of the resi-
dence where he had a small


clear plastic bag with a crys-
tal substance inside,"
Caruthers said.
'Officers 'also saw a small
amount of a green leafy subW
stance inside the shedd; he
said.' :
Brown was arrested after
the materials tested positive
for methamphetamines and
marijuana, according *to
Caruthers.
Because Brown resides
within 1,000 feet of the Faith
Baptist Church in Webster,
arrest charges against .him
were increased, Caruthers
said.


The Sumter County Sheriff's Office dive team Monday after-
noon recovered this white Ford pickup truck that had been
submerged in a Sumterville rockpit on County Road 526. off
County Road 471. The vehicle was located after someone
called 911 saying they saw a hole in a board fence surround-
ing the rock pit and bubbles coming from the water, according
to Sumter sheriff's Lt. Bobby Caruthers. Lake County law
enforcement authorities had reported that the vehicle had
been stolen earlier that day from a local business.

"We have the truck," said
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper Kim Miller, of the
vehicle involved in a hit-and -
run collision that left Sumter
County teacher Donna
Howton in intensive care.
The crash
occurred near-
ly three weeks
ago, but Miller t.
said they still
cannot name .
the driver of "'
the S10 pick-
up truck or say
whether
charges will be
filed because .
the investiga-
tion is ongo- Howton
ing.
"We can't even say how we
came to have the truck," she
said, adding that authorities
are investigating everything
involving the crash.
Howton was evaluating a
horse trailer that detached
itself from the truck she was
driving, when the pick-up
crashed into her.
Howton is in- Orlando
Regional Medical Center.
"She's on a ventilator that's
been attached to a tracheoto-
my," said South Sumter High
School Principal Preston
Morgan.
He said she has been, bat-
tling swelling from the trau-
ma of the injury and since she
would be on the throat venti-
lator longer than originally
anticipated, doctors changed
the ventilator.
Howton is a popular
teacher and was returning
from Lake Receptions after
the Saturday night Senior
Prom when she was hit. T
The driver of the truck
reportedly drove the truck
into her vehicle and rico-
cheted off of it to slam into
her.
Howton had been standing
nearthe pick-up, she was driv-
ing and calling 911 for traffic
assistance. She was also try-
ing to figure out why the trail-
er she was towing detached
itself from the truck, accord-
ing to Morgan.

Center Hill tour


doesn't look good


Center Hill city council mem-
bers recently took a tour of a
cement plant in Suwannee
County, a business apparently
interested in building a similar
facility -in Center Hill.
Elsie Ramsey and -
Jimmy Smith were
believed to be the only
two to end up going on
the April 16 trip that
raised eyebrows and
caused several people
from the area to question
what exactly is going on
there.
If you were to call city
hall, chances are you AmA
wouldn't be able to get a M1
whole lot of information
about it-who it is, what
the company's intentions are, etc.
Yet it's obvious at least some city
officials have been in contact with
the business since they've gone so
far as to visit the plant.
According to the city clerk, the
company has not submitted any-'
thing to the city thus far. What,
then, is the purpose of going on
the tour?
It seems to us if officials want to
partake in something like this, the
city aught to be ready to answer,
any questions constituents may
ask. Outwardly, this doesn't look


very good on their part.
In their defense, officials else-
where take tours of different
things all the time. But why go
somewhere so controversial with-
out having a detailed
"" discussion about it at a
public meeting first?
City employees and
elected officials work for
the citizens.
The city maintains the'
fact of the tour was
known by many resi-
dents, but not everybody
feels that way.
This sends a pretty
NDA strong message that
MS there is a problem with-
in the city between resi-
dents and government
City Clerk Diane Lamb said
Friday nothing about the plant has
been placed on the agenda for the
next council meeting, but Ramsey
and Smith may discuss what they
saw.
Our guess is the topic will come
up, as there are people who seem
to be awaiting answers about the
cement plant
The next meeting is scheduled
for Tuesday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. in
the meeting room across from City
Hall.


II


While we question the basis of their
fear, we don't question their concerns.
At least not after the Times attempt-
ed to get information last week about
a trip to a Suwannee County concrete
plant
Getting information
-''* about this trip from city
officials was sketchy at
best
We still don't understand
why council member Elsie
Ramsey and Jimmy Smith
: were touring a concrete
plant when absolutely no
plans, requests or anything
else have been. submitted
to the city concerning a
gB :concrete plant,
oMAN What's going on here?
A Why would city officials
go .traipsing off to, a con-
crete plant if nothing has
been requested from the city? '
Based on just that experience, we
can see why some Center Hill resi-
dents are concerned and why a
newsletter on the Internet could be a
great idea.
It all depends on how this plays out.
From what we've seen so far, the infor-
mation provided on this website
expresses justified concerns without
attacking.
If it remains a forum for the expres-
sion of viewpoints, ideas and ques-
tions it could be a very useful tool for
the residents of Center Hill.
And whether it be through a web-
site or through the Sumter County
Times, residents of Center Hill will
have a vehicle through which to voice
their concerns.


It's unfortunate when residents of
a city don't feel comfortable
expressing their opinions openly
about city leaders.
That seems to be the case in the city
of Center Hill.
Recently, a website has
been created by some
Center Hill residents call-
ing themselves Concerned
Citizens of Center Hill.
The group has been pub-
lishing a newsletter and
posting it around the city
but they claim that newslet-
ter has been taken down I
and their information is not
being seen.
So, the group has taken to
getting their message B
across through a website. REICH
The website address is.
It's worth a read.
We can't tell you who these con-
cerned Center Hill residents are
because they've decided to'remain
anonymous. We don't know if this is
one concerned Center Hill resident or
a dozen.
Most often, the Times does not pub-
lish or, promote anything that is pro-
vided by anonymous sources but
we're treating this group, at least for
the purpose of this column, as an
exception to the rule.
We can tell you that their anonymi-
ty causes us concern.
They maintain that they are afraid to
reveal their identities for fear of retri-.
Sbution from city leaders.
We'd like to believe that their con-
cerns are unfounded. City officials
are elected to represent people, not
scare or intimidate them.

Need affordable
health care
To the members of the Senate and
Congress: I recently received a letter
from Blue Cross of Florida increasing
my monthly premium $2 a month,
This I could live with.
On the April 16 I received another
rate increase of $40 a month. The total
premium will now be $324 a month,
and this is just for my coverage, not to
mention the amount we pay for my
husband's Medicare and supplement
This may not be a significant
amount to you considering the type ol
health coverageyou receive at the tax-
payers' expense, but with an income
at or just above the poverty level, it is
a very significant amount to me. As I
am under the age of 65, and cannot
qualify for Medicare there are few
choices left to me.
Most doctors in our area will no
longer accept Medicaid. With this
problem facing a majority of people,
not just in Florida, I think this would
be a much better issue for you and
President Bush to take an interest in
than spending our tax dollars running
around the country trying to abolish
Social Security.
I realize that it is the goal of this
administration to eliminate the mid-
dle class altogether and have only the
very rich and the very poor. Let me
state that this goal is well on its way to
becoming a reality I think it is about
time for the government to get to the
priorities of the PEOPLE instead of
big business.

Honoring nurses
during special week
On May 6, the American Nurses
Association and Classic Home
Health Services, Inc. are sponsoring
National Nurses Week, which is held
every year during May 6 to 12. The
purpose of National Nurses Week is
to raise public awareness of the
value of nursing and .to help educate
the public about the vital roles nurs-
es play in meeting the health care
needs of the American people.
To. celebrate National Nurses
Week, Classic Home Health
Services, Inc. would like to pay trib-
ute to the number of nurses in our
nation (2.7 million), or in our state, or
other registered nurses who provide
highly skilled, safe and quality care
in a variety of settings, and who
encounter increased challenges to
their professional and ethical com-
mitment to deliver essential health
care.
Classic Home Health Services,
Inc. is soliciting stories that pay trib-
ute to these nurses. Perhaps, for
example, an'individual may want to
thank a nurse who'cared for him/her
or his/her family member; or per-
haps a nurse was involved in saving
a particular individual's life and the
individual would like to show his/her
gratitude. Classic Home Health
Services, Inc. would like to hear
from your readers.
Please help us recognize our
area's nurses and give an individual
the opportunity to share his/her
story and pay tribute to a particular
nurse or to all indispensable nurses
on this special day.
All stories can be sent to: Classic
Home Health Services, Inc., PO. Box

Teresa Rogers.
Thank you.

Support.Hospice,
call legislators
Locally, we have a treasure known
as Hospice of Lake & Sumter, whose
mission is to provide the best end-of-
life services to the most frail and vul-
nerable people in our area. However,


if the Florida legislature passes a pro-
posed bill to strike the words "not for
profit" from the definition of hospice
in Florida, those services could
diminish.
Florida has the most comprehen-
sive, end-of-life services in the nation.
"Not for profit" hospices in Florida
r have over 1,000 residential hospice
beds in homelike facilities. No "for
profits" in the country provide resi-
dential beds, because using money to
provide hospice houses would defeat
their purpose, which is to show a prof-
t it for stockholders.
f Providing residential beds is one
example of -a service that is riot a
reimbursed item. Hospice of Lake &
Sumter has many such services. A
transitional program, Pathways, helps
t many patients before they are ready
for the full hospice program. Tuck-In
helps people in assisted living facili-
ties and nursing homes. Community
bereavement is extended to everyone
even if no loved one had received hos-
pice care.
The children's grief programs help
youngsters who have lost someone
dear and are lauded by the school sys-
tem. Extended care provides far-
reaching services for home modifica-
tions, utility payments, and caregiver
support All these .and many more
services are provided through dona-
tions, which come from the communi-
ty for the benefit of the community
"For profits" seek stockholders to
invest in their organizations. "Not for
profits" seek terminally ill patients
and their families to provide the best
end-of-life services and programs that
go far beyond basic care provided by
"for profits."
Help preserve your community hos-
pice services. Time is of the essence.
Please join me in defeating this legis-
lation by calling your legislators today.
Alex W Ogilvie DI
Board Chairman
Hospice of Lake & Sumter
Foundation
Help preserve
Hospice definition
At this moment; there are bills
before both the Florida House and
Senate to remove the wording not-
for-profit from the definition of a
hospice organization.
"Not-for-profit," the phrase
speaks for itself.
From the very outset of hospice
care in America, the State of
Florida has characterized this spe-
cialized healthcare service as
being care-driven, not profit moti-
vated: As the state's more than 40
hospices have grown, they have
directed their energies toward cre-
ating more and better offerings for
patients and. families facing any
kind of life-limiting illness.
Hospice of Lake & Sumter offers
self-funded, specialized assistance
programs in bereavement, caregiv-
er support, children's needs, and in
nursing homes and assisted living
facilities. These and similar offer-
ings by other not-for-profit hospices
are not revenue generators, but the
immense benefit they provide to
patients and families is testimony
to their real worth.
To help fund such additional
services, Florida's not-for-profit
hospices rely heavily upon local
community donations. In addition,
not-for-profit hospices accept any
and all patients, regardless of the
nature of illness or expense in
treating it.
From its inception, the not-for-
profit hospice designation has
served Florida well. Now your
local hospice organization and all
others throughout the state ask
your help in preventing the defini-
tion of hospice from being changed.
Please call your state legislators
now and request that they vote
against House Bill 1633 and Senate


Bill 1622.
Time is of the essence. Please
call today!

Pop Warner coming
to South Sumter
As many of you are aware, the chil-
dren of the south end of the county
have been playing Pop Warner foot-
ball for the past two years. We would
like to thank The Villages for allowing
us to play those years in their league.
As our numbers have grown, we feel
that we can get a Pop Warner fran-
chise started in the south end of
Sumter County, with the help of our
community.
On Saturday, April 30, we will be
having an organizational meeting and
pre-registration for all interested par-
ties to discuss what we need to do to
get this accomplished. We invite par-
ents of children, 'ages 7 to 13, interest-
ed I n football and cheerleading to
join us at 11 a.m. at the Kenny Dixon
Sports Complex in Bushnell, at the
picnic area.
We would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank the following businesses
and individuals for their support and
donations to help this league get off to
a great start Dr B. Novak (Bushnell
Family Dentistry), Mr. Aldo Robaina
(General Repair Services), Coach I
Sherman (SSHS), Coach J. Kinley.
(SSMS), and Hawkspoint Design.
For more information on how you:
can help the league be a success,
please call 352-568-7332.
Pop Warner organizers'
Press should
be. more cautious
I am writing in regards to a*
recent story in your newspaper. Ii
feel there are certain topics that'
deserve media coverage. However,
when that coverage harms the chil-
dren involved, it should not be nec-
essary to disclose so many details
without first getting all the.facts.
I am referring to the article
"Teens removed from cockroach-!
infested home." The headline itself.
was uncalled for. How do you think
the children in that article feel?i
They have to live and attend school I
in this community. Do you think!
their peers will understand, care or'
accept them now? I know that chil-
dren can be 'very cruel to others;
who do not fit in their inner circle:
or are different from them. It's hard,
enough being a teenager these
days! They certainly don't need the
press to make it worse!
I am not trying to defend the
actions of the. parent involved, but;
rather the children who had to live
in the only home their parent could
provide at the time. There were:
extenuating circumstances.
There are many homes that are a
lot worse than this one was
described and the people (with
children) continue to live there
even after a visit from DCF!
The head lice is an ongoing prob-
lem with many children in our'
school system. In this case, one.
teen did not have lice. It's a fact
even the cleanest person can get
lice and it's very difficult to get rid
of. Families need to be educated
better on how to get rid of it The
schools and DCF provide other
programs so why can't they provide
programs to help with recurring
problems of head lice?
In conclusion, I think the press
should be more cautious in howl
they report certain topics. There
are more important news stories to
cover than singling out one individ-
ual and ruining their life and hurt-
ing the victims even more!

Kaylee Ray, 13, sings between drawings for the Teasha
Edwards Scholarship reverse raffle on Saturday, April 23.


A high school student from
the 2005 graduating class will
be getting a scholarship this
year in the name of Teasha
Childs Edwards, a history
teacher who died after an acci-
dent on March 21.
Edwards, a favorite at South
Suniter Middle School in
Webster, was named Teacher of
the Year by the school district
earlier last month.
The middle school put
together a scholarship fund,
obtained sponsors, sold raffle
tickets, and held fundraisers
for three weeks to start a schol-
arship in her honor.
After selling 200 tickets for
$100 each, the school had
$20,000, of which they reserved
half for the raffle prize and half
for the scholarship.
Shannon Woodard, a physi-
cal education instructional
aide at SSMS, said the scholar-
ship committee will be looking
for someone they think "might
need an extra push," as well as
criteria like financial need,
future plans, and a written
essay. .
By giving a $500 scholarship


"This scholarship is special,"
she said. "All you need is a 2.0
grade-point average. Teasha
was always for the underdog."
The raffle winner was cho-
sen at the Sumter Farmers
Market in Webster on Saturday,
April 23. There were food and
drinks for the approximately
70 people who purchased tick-
ets while the losers were
picked during the reverse raf-
fle. Every tenth number drawn
got a consolation prize, ranging
from haircuts to oil changes, all
donated from local businesses.
Many of those who attended
and entertained were friends,
coworkers, and students of the,
young educator. Eighth-grader
Kaylee Ray sang the Mariah
Carey song, Hero, in between
raffle drawings. "I sang that
song because Mrs. Edwards
was my hero," she said. "She
was my role model."
At the end of the evening,
one ticket worth $10,000 was
drawn. The four winners who
chipped in to buy the ticket
were Dennis Johnson, Susan
Reddish, Myra Paxton, and
Amy Scarborough.


Marilyn Connell drew 200 names during the scholarship raffle
at the Sumter County Farmers Market in Webster. There was a
$10,000. prize for the last ticket drawn.

Key Areas of Concerns regarding Florida Senate Bill 1622
and House Bill 1633
No-o-Poi Hosp ice F* e r opie


Community-based Hospices can raise
money, over and above Medicare and
insurance thru donations, because of their
non-profit status.


They cannot do this.


SUMMER COUNTY RESIDENTS URGED TO GET INVOLVED


An Open Letter From Hospice
Dear Friend of Hospice:
During recent days, For-Profit Hospices have been successful in
,getting both a House and a Senate bill introduced to strike the words
"Not-for-Profit" from the current legal definition of Hospice in
'Florida law. If this legislation is enacted, Florida Not-for-Profit
'Hospices could have their services to many terminally ill patients
'drastically reduced.
Most Flondians are not a%%are that For-Profit Hospices exist. Our
concern is that people would confuse all Hospices and think they are
tall for-profit. This could cause great damage' to the not-for-profits
that are allowed to recene, and depend greatly on, community giving
to assist in providing the nauon's most comprehensive end-of-life
-services. If Floridians stopped giving to Hospices, services would
have to be cut. Additonally, as the community donations decrease
[due to the perception that Hospices are for profit, many of the not-for-
profit Hospices could cease to exist. This would further erode the
'services to our citizens that are currently provided through donations.
Another concern is that for profit Hospices target patient popula-
tions \ ith less expensive diagnosis. If the for-profits deny patients,
the not-for-profit Hospices would be over burdened with patients with
the more costly diagnoses.
It boils down to serving terminally ill patients or stockholders;
being community-driven or margin-driven; or, better said, Main Street
ys. Wall Street.,
We would like you to join us in mounting a grassroots campaign
against this legislation. Please contact your legislators today. Time is
running out!
Thank you for your concern and assistance in this most important
matter invol% ing the most frail and vulnerable citizens in our commu-
nirN. We appreciate your help in preserving your Hospice services.
Sincerely.

Pat Lehotsky

China Crossing the Cultural Threshold


By Debra Canterbury
For decades China closed its
doors to ,the outside world. I am now
seeing first-hand the life and culture
of these fascinating people. My
home this year is the small town of
Pinghu located an hour south of
Shanghai, bordering the Hangzhou
Bay! My occupation is teaching
English as a second language in
Xinhua Compassion Senior High
School. I welcome you to look
through my eyes into this land of
ancient history, mysterious culture,
and exotic cuisine.
The Pinghu territory dates back to
the Spring and Autumn period (770
BC-476 B.C.); however, during the
beginning of the West Han Dynasty
the land sunk into the Zhe Lake and
years after, in 127 A.D., into the
Dang Lake. Later, the water receded
and land appeared once more. This
land was appropriately dubbed,
Leveled Lake, in the Ming Dynasty
(1430 AD), or as we know it, Pinghu.
While the United States boasts of St.
Augustine and its 440 year old
Men ndez settlement history, Pinghu
possesses a history extending 575
years. The 400 year old bridge still
used in a park downtown is a picture
of its rich history.
Taking a stroll through downtown
may surprise the foreign observer.
Bicycles and mopeds dominate the
traffic bustling through town. Other
forms of transportation include
buses, taxis, cars, and mini-vans -

reminiscent of VW vans right out of
the 1970's. Another unique form of
transportation is the rickshaw. For
about 50 cents a man riding ,a bike,
with a green cart attached to the
back, will take you to your
destination.
Apartments are the main form of
housing within the city limits, while
houses are built in the remote coun-
tryside. In good weather, you can
see the retired citizens of Pinghu
gathering for their early morning
exercises, such as ti jif, and later sit-
ting by the water discussing and con-
templating various matters of life.
Chinese take-out cannot compare
to the exotic Pinghu cuisine.
Seafood is very popular as Pinghu is
a coastal city. Fish is served in a
very life-like fashion. The platter
dons a whole fish, with an eyeball pit
staring back at you. Shrimp (xi_) -
with eyeballs in tact, eel (shAn), pig
tongue (zh_ sh6tou), and pig, cow,
and chicken stomach (zh_, mnii,
and xioj_ wei) are merely a few of
the delicacies served to me. Shen
Hong, a local Pinghu resident, says
she prefers, "Tang ch pai g_" a type
of beef still on the bone cooked in
sauce, she says, "It's delicious!"
Another Pinghu resident, Yu Cui
Qiong, enjoys the Chinese egg and
tomato soup. One of my favorite
dishes is ji_o zi, a fried dumpling
with a mixture of herbs cooked
inside dough. A quaint little restau-
rant us foreigners affectionately refer

Debra Canterbury
at the Great Wall
of China
About the Author: Debra
Canterbury has lived in Florida
all of her life, growing up on
the east side, living a year in
Sumter County's Lake Panasoffkee, and finally residing
in Citrus County until her college years. She is a 2004
communications graduate from Thomas Edison State
College, Trenton, New Jersey. She is currently teaching
high school sophomores at a private Pinghu High School
in the Zhejiang Province of China. Upon her return to
the United States in July, she hopes to pursue a career in
journalism. She says her experiences in China have only
strengthened her desire to learn more about people and
then communicate that knowledge to the world.


While the United States boasts of St.
Augustine and its 440 year old Men6ndez
settlement history, Pinghu possesses a
history extending 575 years. The 400 year
old bridge still used in a park downtown is
a picture of its rich history.
to as, Gramma's, lies tucked away off
a side street where a charming
woman in her later years runs a
"mean" kitchen. In addition to ji_o
zi, we order her tantalizing fried rice,
a mixture of rice, eggs, carrots, pep-
pers, and mushrooms.
The Chinese culture possesses a
distinct difference from that of my
own Florida roots. However, I can
still feel at home halfway around the
world because of the companionship
of my new Chinese friends. Through
a cultural exchange the ancient his-
tory seems more tangible, the myste-
rious becomes more familiar, and the
exotic less eccentric. As you are
asleep in your beds, it's time for my
lunch, perhaps today duck head (y_
t6uno) will be on the menu.

TALLAHASSEE Governor Jeb Bush
today recommended the' state provide $9.5
billion during the next decade -- $1 billion
in cash this year, followed in 2007 with a
10-year bond program -- to fund the trans-
portation component of his growth manage-
ment proposal. Under the funding plan, the
Governor proposes asking Florida's voters
to approve the bond program by referen-
dum in November 2005. Governor Bush's
growth management reform plan highlights
the need for concurrency -- tying growth
decisions made by local government to the'
availability of schools, roads and water.
"As our state continues to grow, our
quality of life is threatened by a system of
growth management that fails to fund criti-
cal public infrastructure to support new
development," said Governor Bush. "This
funding plan ensures we continue to build
our infrastructure at a pace that keeps up
with demand, strengthens Florida's econ-
omy and maintains our high quality of life."
The Governor's growth management
plan requires a pay-as-you-go system,
where decisions about new development
are based on Florida's communities' ability
to provide adequate infrastructure. Under
the plan, comprehensive plans require a
budget and timeline to address the backlog
of infrastructure as well as the increased
demands of new development,
"If we continue in the same direction,
* we will continue to get the same results,"
said Florida Department of Transportation
Secretary Jose Abreu. "Our transportation
needs are tremendous and are growing with
the state's population. The Governor's
funding proposal tackles our transportation
issues and improves the mobility of our
citizens and. visitors."
The Governor's proposal addresses the
following:
Schools Local governments and
school boards would be required to work
together to plan for a growing student
population caused by new development.
Educational facilities would need to be
available or under construction within three
years from approval of development.
Roads Capacity on roads would need
to be available or under construction within
three years from approval of development.
Water Local governments must
ensure sustainable water sources are avail-
able by coordinating and planning with
regional Water Management Districts.
Adequate water supplies would be required

to be available at the time of local develop-
ment approval.
"The Governor's bold proposal allows
Florida to effectively plan for growth in a
way that expands our economy and pro-
vides residents with a reliable supply of.
water and protection for rivers, springs, and
wetlands," said Department of
Environmental Protection Secretary'
Colleen M. Castille. "This coordinated,
collaborative funding plan ensures services
and infrastructure for Florida's communi-
ties are available to meet the needs of our
citizens." Under'the transportation funding
proposal, local governments would be
required to use local revenues to meet local
needs created by growth. Statewide,
Florida communities have a combined
annual total of $5.3 billion available for
infrastructure, including $1.1 billion for
roads, $2.8 billion for schools and nearly
$1.4 billion for general infrastructure.
Under the growth management plan, local
governments will be required to tap into
existing funding sources to pay the cost of
needed local infrastructure, while state gov-
ernment will fund infrastructure of state-
wide priority.
"Governor Bush's proposal ensures
Florida's future contains adequate roads,
water and schools, protecting our quality of
life," said Department of Community
Affairs Secretary Thaddeus Cohen. "Local
governments have funding sources avail-
able for critical infrastructure and these
untapped resources need to be used to
maintain healthy and growing
communities."
The plan unveiled today focuses on
investing in our transportation system to
relieve urban congestion and expand our
major trade and tourism routes. According
to the Florida Department of
Transportation, every one dollar invested in
transportation (highways, rails and transit)
generates a return on investment of $5.50 in
economic benefits.
The funding proposed will address the
backlog of transportation funding and
improve road conditions throughout the
state. And if approved by the voters, the
Governor's proposal would be the largest
transportation funding increase in state his-
tory without raising taxes.

Bush's Growth Management reform pro-
posal please visit www.myflorida.com.

Still groggy from a early-

Martin's appearances were
scattered, but fruitful for fans.
With every appearance
came a handful of autographs,
not just from Martin, but his
son Matt as well;
The thought of having such
a celebrity on hand for a local
event left many star-strucked
and watching from afar as
Martin worked with his son's
truck crew to prepare for the
day's event.
Having a driver of this cal-
iber could have been disas-

Wildwood High School hosts lesson on hazards of drunk driving


ROBIN EDDINS
Times Correspondent

With the Prom only days
away, a dramatic way of show-
ing the serious dangers of
alcohol and driving was 'pre-
sented to the junior and sen-
ior classes at Wildwood High
School.
'The event was stage twice
last week once during the
school day and again in the
evening for parents, students
and a group from Teen Court
The students gathered in
the gym for the program with
a short play depicting three
young girls preparing for their
dates, dancing at the prom
and a rush to a party. The play
continued with Officer J.
(Pork Chop) Lindsey taking
the microphone and telling
the crowd just what would
'happen to them if they were
found drinking and driving on
Prom night or any other night.
"I will put you in jail and
then maybe go after your par-
ents for letting you drive,"
said Lindsey. "One beer and
you are legally drunk in one
hour. The legal limit is .08.
'The smaller you are .the
quicker you are drunk"
Lindsey a life-long
Wildwood resident and for-
mer WHS graduate, told the
students about losing family'
members to a DUI incident
He concluded by speaking
for the Wildwood Police
Department saying, "We will
be out on Prom night"
At that moment another stu-
dent, acting in the drama, ran
in screaming that there ,had
been an accident The audi-


ence was then sent outside to
observe the accident scene.
Participants in the realistic
accident scene included the
Wildwood Police Department,
the Sumter County Fire
Rescue, the Lake/Sumter
EMS, Oxford Fire
Department and the
Wildwood High School Drama
Club. The group efforts were
coordinated and narrated by
Brian Gibson of the Sumter
County Fire Rescue
Department
As the scene Unfolded,
Gibson explained the proce-
dures to the crowd of onlook-
ers from the arrival of the
police officers, the EMS
assessing the accident vic-
tims, the arrest of the driver, a
victim being, cut from a vehi-
cle,. a helicopter arriving to
transport a victim, to the coro-
ner arriving to pronounce the
dead.
During the performance,
the onlookers watched as the
rescue workers followed
through the procedures of
caring for the injured and
putting the dead into body
bags while other actors por-
trayed friends and family at
the scene crying and hoping
for the best for the victims.
Speaking at both events was
Howard Odor a. representa-
tive from MADD and a father
who lost two children to alco-
hol and driving incidents.
Sumter County Deputy S.
Woolfork said, "If (the mes-
sage portrayed) reaches just
one student then it's been
worth it. Sadly, it may take
someone going to jail before
they get the message."


Wildwood Police arrive at the
'scene' in the second per-
formance of Prom Promise on
Thursday evening, "accident
victims" lay "dead" and
"injured."











EMS and Rescue place "vic-
tim" Chris Lipps, sophomore,
into a body bag during the
enactment meant to display
the true horrors of drunk driv-
ing to WHS students.


Oasey Wilson, Junior at WHS is "arrested" at the scene of the
"accident'" for D.U.I. by Wildwood Police Officers.

Last year Mrs. McKinney's first grade class built five bluebird
boxes to create a bluebird trail on the North Sumter Primary
School campus and have had some success in the effort. One
nest is full of baby bluebirds and this year's students were
very interested in the birds. They were inspired to read to the
nest of babies after they visited a horse farm on a field trip.
The bluebird reading was sparked by a little reading to horse
on the farm. Student readers were Bradley Anderson, Kryroan
Armstrong, and Marquavias Gordonwere.


Sumter jail administrator

earns certification


Capt. Thomas Moffitt,
,Sumter County Detention
Center jail administrator, has
earned national certification
,as a certified jail manager by
.the authority of the American
Jail Association.
"We are accredited by a
'Florida organization and we
,are governed by state jail
!standards. I thought it was
important to also have some
'credentials from an interna-
tional authority," Moffitt stat-
ed.
, The process starts with the
Liling of a rigid experiential
application that requires the
applicant to achieve points
through work experience,
education, community sern-
ice, published works, and
teaching or inspection
engagements.
Of the 775 points possible
applicants must meet at a
minimum 500, however, the
points must be well rounded
:and not all scored in one dis-
cipline. Moffitt easily met the
requirements and submitted
his application for accept-
ance to sit for the four-hour
test.'
Due to the lengthy process,


the Jail Manager's
Certification Commission
holds only four tests a year,
Moffitt had to travel to
Atlanta to take the test
The test consisted of seven
different disciplines. Moffitt
scored 227 out of a possible
250. He scored a perfect score
in the discipline of profes-,
sional issues. Certification in
jail management is a demon-
stration of competency and
professionalism in the field.
The jail manager's certifica-
tion documents -,the mastery.
of a strong level of knowledge,
in the specialty and demon-
strates continuing education
and growth.
Moffitt worked in the jail
from 1991 to 1997, and
returned in 2001 at Sheriff
Bill Farmer's request to run
the Detention Center:
"I am very proud of Captain
Moffltt attaining this status. It
makes all the men and
women who are employed by
my agency very proud also.
Captain Moffitt is a true asset
to the men and women he
cares for at the Sumter
County Detention Center,"
stated Farmer.


This nest is filled with baby bluebirds and is on the bus loop at
North Sumter Primary School. It was shot by Cyndy Foster, as
she looked down on them. Three students at the school began
reading to the baby birds and got a reaction, as shown in the
picture. Foster said the birds began opening their beaks, as
the boys read.

SMedicare hotline chills



callers with inaccuracies


IT or many years, I have
complained about the
services of what is
now referred to as the
"Medicare hot
line."
The inability of
hot line staff to pro-
Side accurate
Information, even
tiearly accurate
Information, to
Medicare benefici-
aries has puzzled
me.
I am particularly
confused by the
government's abili- DAI
ty to deposit both Rom
Social Security and
disability checks in
the accounts of tens of mil-
lions of Americans, in thou-
sands of banks across this
;nation, on time each month,
yet, it is still difficult for
those who answer the hot
line phone to provide an
answer to a beneficiary's
question.
Yet, each year, the annual
Medicare handbook is more
{informative and reader
understandable than ever.
However, the program
increases, year after year, in
eneficiary discrepancy. But
beneficiaries who read the
handbook still need further
assurance.
The confusion starts here.
Basically, the hot line staff
,works from the same book
But the book used by hot line
staff has been converted into
the form of questions and
answers, based on both a
hard copy and computer
structure.
i Since its creation, this
service has been a nightmare
For those who require infor-
pmation. It is indeed a fact
that one may call this govern-
|ment-provided free service
land receive a different
answer to the same question
4if more than one call is


placed to the hot line.
Through the years, physi-
cians and other medical
providers have had the same


problem 4s benefi-
ciaries when they
receive incorrect
information pri-
marily billing
information.
Since the
M e d i c. a r e
Prescription Drug
Improvement and
Modernization Act
of 2003 (MMA) was
passed into law,
the number of hot
line operators has
increased by more
than 1,200, and the


NIEL
MIAN


phone calls increased by
more than 11 million in 2004.
This only added to the confu-
sion of the program's callers.
The present telephone
number, aptly, is
800-MEDICARE The pre,
or (800) 633- phone
4227.
My corn- aptly,
plaints to vari- MEDIC
ous members of -(800) 63
Congress, the
Center for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CMS), its predeces-
sor HCFA, and the
Department of Health
Human Services (HHS) have
always fallen upon deaf ears.
The problem became
prevalent once again during
MMA's Medicare discount
card issue, and the income
allowed by those who wanted.
to apply for the $600 special
credit based on their person-
al income. ,
After I wrote many
columns concerning this
credit, I received many let-
ters and e-mails stating that
they had phoned 800-
Medicare, and that their
Social Security income was
excluded from the amount of
income, or lack of, to qualify


for this two-year special ben-
efit Wrong!
One positive regulation of
MMA was to have the CMS in
conjunction with the
Government Accountability
Office (GAO) to conduct an
accuracy check of this sys-
tem. The report was issued in
early December of 2004; the
GAO conclusions were of no
surprise to me the system
is horrendous.
Accurate answers concern-
ing the new prescription
drug benefit and the discount
drug cards were answered
correctly only one-third of
the time. Ten percent of the
800-Medicare customer serv-
ice representatives didn't
have any answer
As for Medicare questions
provided by providers, it was
worse. Provider-billing ques-


tions we
sent tele-
number,
is 800-
,ARE or
33-4227.


re answered incor-
rectly 55 per-
cent of the time,
and another 42
percent of said
questions
resulted in par-
tial answers.
I decided to


give the benefit of doubt to
the then-newly appointed
CMS administrator Mark
McClellan, but, with six
months left to apply for the
new prescription drug bene-
fit, nothing has changed.
The Medicare discount
card was a gross MMA fail-
ure, because of the lack of
constant and accurate infor-
mation, and so will be the
prescription drug benefit,
that you will be all too soon
applying for!

A BRIEF LESSON ABOUT

Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union.

(And why "free checking" really means free checking.)


JUf When it comes to looking out for your mones, a lot of banks just aren't

making the grade. (Or perhaps you're done the math on sour "free checking"

account and determined that a service charge here and a service

charge there does not equal free.) 'That being the case, there's no better

time to become enlightened about joining a credit union. See, banks ecst

for one reason: to return profits to shareholders. At credit unions, profits go

right back to members in the form of lower rates on loans, higher earnings

on deposits and free and low-fee services. 7M< Consider what you can get at

Suncoast: Free checking with no minimum balance or monthly fee. You also

get free access to sour account at branches. ATMs. by phone and the internet

We even provide free bill pay. _And you'll find friendly, experienced advisors

who are committed to treating you the way they like to be treated. That

includes taking the time to explain things, with straight answers. And you just

can't put a price on that. 8 You may be eligible to become a member of

Suncoast. Just call 800-999-5887 or visit joinsuncoast.org to learn more.

Criter CHATTER


A home I
Opie is a friendly fellow with
a playful personality. He likes
'the company of people, other
animals, going for walks, and
playing in the yard.
. Opie is approximately 1-1/2
years old and 35 pounds. He
has all his vaccinations and is
neutered. If you would like to
give Opie a home, e-mail the
Humane Society/SPCA of
Summer County at
humane@sum.net or mail in


for Opie
your request to EO. Box 67,
Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538.
Visit our web 'site at
www.humanesocietyspcaof-
sumtercounty.com to see other
orphaned pets in need of a
home.
The Humane Society/SPCA
of Sumter County is a non-prof-
it organization whose mission is
to rescue animals in need, and
find them loving homes. Some
of the animals that come into


our care may be ill or injured.
Some Humane Societies and
rescue groups will only take in
healthy adoptable animals, and
refuse a refuge to the ill and
injured. The financial expense
of caring for a sick dog or cat, or
repairing their broken bones
can become exuberant
When Opie came into the
Humane Society/SPCA's foster
program, he was in the incuba-
tion stages of having the deadly
disease, parvo. Not only did
Opie become immediately sick,
but so did his sister, Pippi.
Some organizations have a pol-
icy not to treat illnesses, but


instead have the animal
humanely euthanized. Not so
with the Humane Society/SPCA
of Sumter County. Every effort
is made to save the animals that
come into our care. We feel a
commitment to that animal,
and he or she deserves the
chance to get well. That is why
we have treated animals with
mange, parvo and broken bones
too.
We can commit to the ani-
mals in our care because of our
dedicated volunteers and
financial help from the public.
In many businesses around the
county you can find our dona-


tion doggie banks (a red dog-
house with Snoopy sitting on
top). If you see one, drop some
of your change in it. The money
in these boxes go directly for


medical expenses for our ana
. mals.
Help us keep our commit-
ment to the animals; help fil
those doggie banks!

Plenty of interest while going on a cruise


To tell you the truth, I
have never really had
very much of a strong
desire of going on a cruise of
any kind much less one that
lasted for seven days. I sure
did not
care any-
thing
.. ~ whatsoev-
er about
.going
a down to

j Bahamas
or any
other of
th-ose
tourri'sPt

for that
matter.
However, I have always
had a very strong interest in
the vast but lost civilization
belonging to the great Mayan
people and their wonderful
culture. The remaining
Mayan people still live in
Mexico and Central America
and with this in mind a
cruise to this part of the
world would be a great
opportunity to visit and study
the ruins where these fantas-
tic people once thrived.
'Well, as things turned out,
the opportunity to take a
cruise down into Mexico and
Central America came up
and the timing was right
where my good friends the
Reynolds from Kellogg,
Idaho, could go along also so
I told Shug to try and put a
cruise together.
Folks, if you read my arti-
cles from time to time you are
well aware that
I spend a lot of
time out in
Idaho each fall I was no

have enjoyed
the hospitality
that he and his wife Adrienne
have extended to me for
nearly 30 years while I am
out there.
With this thought in mind, I
got a hold or Roy Bass from
Hawthorne, another friend
who hunts and camps with
Doyle, who quickly agreed
that this would be. a great
time to get Adrienne down
here and give her a well
deserved break from the long
winters they have in north
Idaho.
Doyle has been making the
trip down here for years to go
wild turkey hunting in the
spring time and it was way
past time for Adrienne to
come along also. As far as the
turkey hunting with Doyle
went this year, his luck was
better than good because on
the first two mornings we
went hunting he was lucky

enough to get a trophy long
bearded gobbler on both
mornings.
His hunt this year was
much different than last year.
In that last year, he got a good
gobbler on the first morning
but as hard as we hunted it
was two weeks later and on

i Anyway, as air as the cruise
went, right off the bat I was
thinking to myself 'what in
this world am I going to do for
seven .days while being
trapped on a cruise ship?'
Well, as I quickly found out,
once we got under way there
really is plenty to keep you
occupied. If you like to eat
you can best believe there is
no shortage of mighty fine
groceries that you can feast
on all day and well into the
night and never eat the same
meal twice. The food, as I had
heard before going on a
cruise, would be fantastic
and on our ship the
"Splendor of the Seas" the
food preparation and presen-
tation was even better that I

around to reading a couple of

they are something else. It is
hard to conceive how those
people were able to build the
thousands of beautiful struc-
tures they did without the
help of modern tools we have
at our disposal today.
I could have spent a year
down there studying the
ruins but at least I got to actu-
ally touch and admire them
for little while and if I get the
chance I am going back when
I can stay a lot longer. The
weather down there never
gets cold and when we were
there it was about like a June
or July typical day here in
Central Florida.
As it turned out, I had a
great time on our cruise as
well as did Shug and the
Reynolds and Bass's. If and
when I get to go on another
cruise I want it to be to
Alaska. I have heard a lot of
folks say this is also great
cruise to go on so we have it
on the drawing board for
vacation on down the road.

was the only local Modified
driver to compete in the spe-
cial event.
Tommy Bowser came off the
pole to lead the first 10 laps
before being displace by
Wayne Jefferson as they two
battled out of the third turn.
Jefferson checked out on the
19-car field but used up his
energy too early and bowed
out of the event with 20 laps to
go with power failure on his
No. 1 Modified machine.
Bowser regained control
and took the win uncontested.
The battle for second came
down to the wire with Jimmy
Wagner and Lee Collins in a
side-by-side dual out of the
fourth turn and all the way to
the checkers with Wagner
beating
Collins to the line by inches.
Jack Arnold III was fourth,
followed by Modified rookie
Curtis Neumann.
The Gulfcoast .Corteco
Modifieds are scheduled for*
their second appearance ,on
June 18.
With the best turnout of kid-
competitors, the FASTKIDS
program started 14 in the 12-'
17 age bracket. And by the end
of 25 grueling laps, it was 14-
year-old Patrick Stampolli


with his second winner's tro- r.
phy in as many events.
Spencer Taylor finished
second over John Kidwell, ,
Brian Blum and Joe Coulter.
Rick Morales landed his
second FASTRUCK Pro event -
over Rick Moxley, Tim'
Schnaffer, Gary Foxworth and
the 2004 FASTKIDS champi- .
on 14-year-old Dalton Zehr.
The FASTRUCK series
returns Aug. 27. ,p
Zehr, like Matt Martin have-
stepped up their racing pro-
grams and are competing in
the Pro division this season. ,
But unlike Zehr, Martin's day
was not as prosperous for the -
13-year old in his first Pro -
event
Martin started third in the'
24-truck field and was having.
a good race before sliding out ,,
of the groove and being sent to' ,
rear under caution. Despite E
the setback, and several addi- ,
tional trips to the tail-end of
the field, Martin was able to ,
make his way to 11th before a
final incident ended his run
for the day ,
Next week brings the USA
Winged Sprint Cars, Open
Wheel Lites, Late Models,
Super Stocks. Thunder Stocks
and 4 Cylinder Bombers to the:
3/8-mile asphalt oval.
