Commission approves cement


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

Sumter County Commis-
sioners on Tuesday granted
approval for a possible second
cement plant to be built in the
county.
With a three-to-two vote, the
board agreed to modify an
existing conditional use per-
mit for Natural Resources of
Central Florida (NRCF) so the
company can build the plant


on limerock mine. property
near Sumterville.
The board's action came
after a second round of hear-
ings on the issue. Commission
Chairman Joey Chandler con-
vinced the board last week to
table the matter until he could
learn more about possible air
emissions from the proposed
plant and about potential traf-
fic impacts.
This week, Chandler joined:
with Commissioners Michael
Francis and Richard Hoffman


in approving the mining com-
pany's request.
Commissioners Jim Roberts
and Randy Mask voted'against
modifying the permit.
The cement plant would use
limestone, sand and clay from
the site along with other mate-
rials to produce cement in a
kiln with an approximately
275-foot-high exhaust stack,
according to information sub-
mitted with NRCF's applica-
tion.
The company would contin-


ue mining operations on the
property that are currently
performed by Dixie Lime and
Stone, according to company
representatives.
The plant site is a 46-acre
piece of an approximately
1,200-acre mine site. It is
north of County Road 470 and
about two miles east of U.S.
301.
Attorney Anna Long pre-
sented commissioners with a
package of "evidence" docu-
ments this week. She listed


numerous items that were
included including copies of
letters from Dixie Lime and
Stone agreeing to address
access road problems for that
operation also.
She also reiterated that
NRCF has agreed to fund a
traffic study for C-470 in the
mine vicinity and would
include the Dixie Lime and
Stone entrance.
Chandler said he generally
had gotten the information he
needed since the last meeting,

--Landfill regulations



to be considered


Photo by Amanda Mims
A man officials believed to have outstanding warrants in Suwannee County added a few more
charges to his rap sheet after being pulled over by Citrus County deputies. James Roy Love,
37, was arrested on U.S. 44 Tuesday, Aug.16. in Lake Panasoffkee near Inverness. Lieutenant
Buddy Grant of the Citrus Sheriff's Office said officers spotted Love, who was wanted on drug
charges, on his motorcycle and pulled him over. At one point the Sheriff's Department vehicle
and the motorcycle collided, but the incident caused no visible damage to the vehicles. Love
was taken to the Sumter County Detention Center and held on charges of carrying a concealed
weapon and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

County Commissioners on
Tuesday are scheduled for a
second round of discussions
and a possible vote on land
use regulations for Class-I
landfills.
Commissioners are slated
to hear comments from citi-
zens as well as individuals
with a potential business
interest in the landfills during
the public hearing scheduled
for 6:15 p.m.
It could be the final
required hearing for the pro-
posed land use rules, as the
approval requires two hear-
ings and a vote by the board.
But, according to County
Attorney"Randall Thornton, if
the commissioners are not
satisfied with the content of


the ordinance before them,
they can continue the hearing
process to a future meeting
Last week during the first of
the hearings. Thornton told
board members they could
incorporate changes to the
proposal to consider at the
next hearing. "You don't hate
to approve it then you can
continue to refine it till you
have what you want," he said
Some of the key provisions
of the proposed regulations
are a number of "setbacks" -
the minimum distance
between landfill operations
and neighboring land fea-
tures.
They include no less than
one half mile to any resi-
dence, three hundred feet
from any jurisdictional wet-

not an issue with the new
plants."
Having almost everything
under cover or enclosed pre-
vents problems, according to
Chandler and NRCR project
manager Cary Cohrs.
Chandler did ask
Development Services Director
Robbie Rogers if dust control
could be included in operating
permit requirements.
She affirmed that it could be
included.
Chandler also noted that the
FDEP representative had told
that the agency rules are stricter
with every permit it issues. And,
the county could get additional
monitoring requirements added
to the permit.
John Koogler, the air quality
consultant for NRCF's permit-
ting effort, said that the plant
emissions would be monitored
continuously and reported at
least quarterly to the FDEP He
acknowledged that the agency \
required "on-line" monitoring
for a recently built plant in
Alaclua County.
Roberts said he had major
concerns, among them the
potential discharge of mer cury
as an air contaminant
Representatives for another
cement plant that has been ten-


tatively proposed for the Center
Hill area had told residents that
plant would potentially dis-
charge up to 170 lbs. of mercury
per year, Roberts said.
But Koogler said the amount
is actually about 122 pounds,
most of it coming from the lime-
stone, clay, and sand on site.
The assumption is that all of it
would be released to the atmos-
phere, Koogler said, noting that
all raw materials and fuels input
into the process would be close-
ly monitored for mercury con-
tent. '
Roberts raised the issue about
public health warnings advising
that childbearing women and
children should not be consum-
ing any largemouth bass from a
number of local lakes due to
mercury content.
He also said he was con-
cerned that the potential con-
tamination area from the plant
would not be just .a two mile
perimeter as was sometimes

mentioned during the discus-
sions that it would actually be a
plume with a contaminant "drop
out" extending from about 11-47
miles from the plant.
"We're talking about moving
more than 32,000 people within
miles 'of this plant," Roberts
said.
But, Koogler maintained that
having a discharge and finding a
"measurable" amount of mercu-
ry in the area are not the same
thing.
A lengthy and complex admin-
istrative hearing in Alachua
County resulted in the hearing
officer determining that the 100
pounds of mercury discharge
permitted for a plant there
would not result in a measura-
ble amount of contamination.
"But, wouldn't this plant be
permitted to discharge 122
pounds per year for a 100 years,"
Roberts asked.
And, he also noted his concern
for the "group effect" of soon


having potentially three of these
plants in the county.
"Are we not opening the door
to adding mercury to where
there is not mercury," Roberts
asked.
Koogler contended that the
FDEP would weigh the impact
of three plants and other possi;-
ble air contaminant sources
such as the coal-fueled Florida
Power plant at Crystal River.
As. for opening the door, Long
told the board that "the door is
already open," referring to
recent commission approval for
a proposed cement plant on the
Mazak ranch property at Mabel.
The issue of using discarded
tires as one of the fuel sources
was also discussed. Roberts
questioned that as a possible
source of dioxin emission.
Koogler said the plant would
not generate d iox in with the way
the tires would be 'burned at
very high temperatures.
"Someone would be exposed

to more dioxin grilling a steak in
their back yard than from a
cement plant," Koogler said.
Hoffman suggested that it
would benefit the company to
test for background levels of
mercury in the local environ-
ment prior to operating the
plant and to do the same on an
annual basis to determine if a
problem developed.
A few citizens addressed the
board, again raising their con-
cerns about potential air con-
tamination and the proliferation
of limerock mining in the county.
Lake Panasoffkee resident
Marjorie Wells warned that you
couldn't expect the state agency
to help you.
When she lived near Center
Hill, she had numerous prob-
lems because of the limerock
minre, and was promised all sorts
of help. she said. -'They did noth-
ing to help. After 53 years I
moved away."
She had even shown as real-

tor Cohrs the Mazak mine prop-

the board approve a cement
plant there, she said.
"I don't believe in letting
money buy our environment,"
Wells said. Commissioners
should think about what is in
that area: a community college
campus, a medical center and a
planned hospice house, she
said.
Mask said that he lived within
two miles of the plant site, but
did not really know enough
about it to be concerned for him-
self. But, the people of the coun-
ty are whom he represents and
they are concerned, he said. "I
do not feel comfortable with this
for that reason."

School board budget increases by nearly $8 million


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Sumter residents will be pay-
ing slightly less toward public
schools when they pay their
property taxes next year, since
the School Board proposed a tax
levy of 8.039 mills earlier this
month (one mill equals $1 in:
taxes for each $1,000 of assessed
taxable property value).
, Even though the anticipated


8.039 mills is close to this year's
8.402, the proposed budget of
27,124,640 has increased by
$7,776,570 compared to last year.
For the owner of a home with
a taxable value of $100,000, the
anticipated savings would be
about $36.
Figured into the millage rate
is also a 2-mill property tax for
the district's capital outlay proj-
ects, which include construction
and remodeling at Lake


Panasoffkee Elementary,
Webster Elementary, .and
Wildwood High School Sports
Complex, and the purchasing of
seven school buses and two


other vehicles.
The district also added 47 new
teachers to its roster at the end
of July.
Finance Director Debbie


Smith said there is a required
amount the School Board has to
collect in taxes in order to
receive $16,251,351 in state edu-
cation grants. Sumter's manda-
tory sum, or required local
effort, is $17,076,956, a 9.98 per-
cent increase over last year. The
required local effort makes up
more than 60 percent of the total
proposed budget.
Smith said there aren't any
major changes with the district's


budget this year, but revenue
has increased because of growth
in the county, and that the board
has steadily decreased the mill-
age rate over the last several
years.
A final budget hearing is
scheduled for 6 pm. on Tuesday,
Sept 6, during a regular meet-
ing at the District
Administrative Complex on
West County Road 476 in
Bushnell.

tary, talks with DCF employee
Retta Hodges during a visit to
the District 13 office in
Wildwood.
13 is one of the lowest-funded

ing does not determine effec-
tiveness.
She also said during her
visit, she was looking for ideas.
for methods to implement
elsewhere.
The tour was followed by an
awards banquet tor DCF
employees in Wildwood,
which Hadi attended
She was scheduled to visit

pared when the time
occurs.

The first 200 individuals to show:
up at the door ^will receive a hurri-
cane preparedness bag.
During a power failure, cooking
and eating habits must change. You
may have no heat, no refrigeration
and limited water. Health risks from
contaminated or spoiled. food may
increase.
When preparing food during a
power outage follow these guide-
lines.
Conserve
fuel
Consider the amount of cooking
time needed for particular foods.
If you have limited heat for cook-
ing, choose foods which cook quickly.
Prepare casseroles and one-dish
meals, or serve no-cook foods..
Alternative cooking methods
include:
/ Fireplace
Many foods can be skewered,
grilled or wrapped in foil and cooked
in the fireplace.
/ Electric utensils
If gas is 'cut off but you still have
electricity, use electric skillets, hot
plates or coffee makers to heat food.
S Candle warmers
Devices using candle Warmers
such as fondue pots maybe used if no
other heat sources are available.
Camp stoves, charcoal burners and
gas grills may be used outside your
home. Never use these fuel-burning
items inside your home. Fumes from
these stoves can be deadly.
Do. not cook frozen foods unless
you have ample heat for cooking.


Commercial canned foods can be
eaten straight from the can.
Do not use home canned vegeta-
bles unless you have the means to
boil them for 10 minutes
c before eating.
Conserve water
Save liquids from
canned 'vegetables.
Substitute these for water
in cooked dishes.
Drain and. save juices
from canned fruits'.
Substitute these for water
in salads and beverages.
Observe health
ETHA precautions
iDOX Boil all water used in
.... food preparation for at
least 10 minutes.,
If you .are without refrigeration,
open only enough food containers for
one meal.
If necessary, substitute canned and
powdered milk forTfresh milk.
Prepare and eat foods in their orig-
inal containers.
Safety of frozen foods after a power
failure
When anticipating a power failure
set the refrigerator and freezer tem-
perature to the coldest setting to
build up a cooling reserve.
If flood water enters your freezer
or refrigerator, dispose of all food not
sealed in metal airtight cans or glass
jars.
Keep your freezer
door closed
With the freezer door is closed,
foods usually will stay frozen at least
a day or perhaps two or three days
depending on the quantity of insula-
tion.
Food in well-fitted, well-insulated,
four cubic foot home freezers will not
begin to spoil in fewer than three
days; in, 12 to 36 cubic foot freezers-
food will not begin to spoil in fewer
than five days, and may be all right
seven or eight days if the food is very
cold.
Open the freezer only to take out
the food for moving to a locker, plant
or to add dry ice.
Do not put hot foods in the freezer
since this will increase the tempera-
ture.
Keep hot foods covered and dis-.
card if not eaten within 2 hours.
.Keep meat above 140 degrees E

John and Ethel


Stephens
Much has been said about Mr.
and Mrs. Stephen's contributions
to past FFA members; however,
just as numerous are their contri-
butions to the current generation
of FFA members. When I joined
FFA in the seventh grade, I
learned of the true history and
winning tradition, started by the
Stephens family. They believed in
the program, and because of their
leadership, today's members of
the South Sumter FFA Chapters
still enjoy the prestige of being a
South Sumter FFA member.
Although Mr. Stephens has offi-
cially been retired for many years,
he still maintains an active inter-
est in the South Sumter FFA chap-
ter and its members. My sister
Stacy and I share the unique.
honor of being the first brother
and sister state FFA. presidents.
However, neither of us could have
made it there without the support
and encouragement of both Mr.
and Mrs. Stephens. Although not
officially our FFA advisor, Mr.
Stephens had a great influence on
our FFA careers. He and Mrs.
Stephens were always willing to
give ad%\ice, critique speeches and
applications, and were still com-
mitted to making South Sumter
. FFA the best. They have a genuine
interest in the/youth of Sumter
County
"The scholarship endowment in
honor of Mr. and Mrs. Stephens is
truly a testament to their belief in
agriculture and agriculture ed u-
cation. If you have not already


done so, I strongly encourage you
to order your tickets to attend the
dinner in their honor on Aug. 27,
at 6 p.m. Tickets may be pur-
chased at SunTrust, Center State
Bank, and Sumter County Farm
Bureau.
Contributions to the scholarship
fund can be made payable to "UF
Foundation-SHARE" and mailed
to PO. Box 272, Bushnell, FL
33513.1 I encourage you to be a part,
of this event honoring two very
special Sumter County people.

Commissioners need to
Solve animal problem.
I would like to thank Diane
Hartman, Sandy Mitchell and
Linda Graves for standing up for a
subject that is much in need of
attention.
If the county can find monies for
many things, they should find
money to take care of the overpop-
ulation of our animals.
But they. still have. not
addressed the real issue. The peo-
ple who throw away their animals
when they no longer want them.
There should be a stiff fine for
that (if they catch them).
Only a Few months ago there
were 23 cats in our neighborhood.
Five of which took up residence in
my flowerbed. They are all stray
cats. They w would tear up my yard.
I had to catch five of them myself.
When I found out they put them
to death, I was surprised. I had
thought they kept them to see if
they could find homes for them.
The animal control explained to


me that was not the case. They
haven't any place to keep them.
The do-gooders who feed stray
animals believe they are doing a
good thing. In the long run they do
them an injustice.
These animals are territorial
and there isn't any place for them
to go. That's how bad the.problem
is. The problem escalates, as these
felines are not fixed. Right here
the cats just had another litter.
These animals need loving per-
sons and homes.
The community needs to under-
stand: If they really love animals,
they should contribute to the
Humane Society and help animal
control to fix the problem.
Thank you to all those who do
help.
The animal control group does a
great job with what they have to
work with.
Come on, Sumter County, let's
get on the bandwagon and HELP!
Especially you, our commission-
ers.

In
appreciation
With grateful hearts, we the fam-
ily of Linda E. Smith, wishes to
thank the many family and friends
for all your thoughtful ways of kind-
ness during the passing of our
loved one.
We will never forget you all.
May God bless you for all prayers,
calls, visits and all other acts of love
and caring.

Outsourcing makes for, phone frustration


SDan, every time I telephone
Medicare or Social Security, I
am more confused than
before I made the telephone call,
and the long wait for
Social Security. What is
going on?"
A.: Yours is a common
complaint, and one that
I receive a number of-
times per year, year
my favorites.
So, allow me to spend
some time with the
answer.
I personally survey
both the Social Security D
Administration (SSA) Ro
and Medicare help line
twice a year. Your call to
Medicare is not a call to the
Center for Medicare and Medicaid
Services (CMS), but rather it is a
call to a separate division of a pri-
vate insurance company that acts
as an intermediary for CMS.
The call may be taken from the
telephone number that appears
on your Medicare explanation of
benefits, and they handle all ques-
tions concerning your claim, as
well as any problems with the pay-
ment or status of said claim.
It is "outsourced" and has been
since the beginning of the pro-
gram.
A question to the Medicare "hot
line" is actually a call made to
another privately held company
that answers general questions.
Again, the hot line is outsourced.
In fact, most of the Medicare's
payments, claims, questions, mail-
ings are all outsourced, with the


'I


exception of rules and regula-'
tions.
The government has little to do
with the day-to-day operation of-
', this $300-billion pro-
gram, not including the
S.. forthcoming cost of Part
N D that also will be out-
; sourced to private
insurance companies.
Who exactly answers
the phones at SSA? I
believe that it is true
federal employees.
.Both Medicare and
SSA operators work off
a computer-generated
AN queue-card system.
HAN This is were the prob-
lem begins. Whatever
the nature of your ques-
tion, it must be interpreted by
each individual operator, and
each may interpret your question
differently, hence, it is quite pos-
sible, especially with the
Medicare hot line, to have your
questions interpreted differently
by each operator, so there is a pos-
sibility that the wrong queue will
be brought forward on their com-
puter, and you may receive three
different answers from three dif-
ferent operators.
Folks, these people truly work to
their best ability to answer your
questions. These are hardwork-
ing, well-meaning folks. They
receive far too many calls and they
are ill trained. Because of the
number of calls that they receive,
there is little to no quality control.
Remember, their lack of training
is not their fault; however, it is not
an excuse.


I sometimes believe that gross
incompetence is a high-level man-
agement decision. It might sound'
'strange, but give it some thought.
Post script: Is the government
using propaganda at the Social
Security information line? No
way, not this administration.
Oh, yes indeed. While you're
awaiting an operator to assist you
with your question or problem,
you will be forced to listen to a
number of recorded "helpful"
messages. And one that plays over
and over again has to do with
changing Social Security.
Remember, the president's
grandiose plan to change the
mechanics of Social Security, you
know the one that did not have any
specifics, just oratory.
Well, I do not have the direct
phrase, so here is a paraphrase
version; phone them and listen for
yourself.
Social Security needs to
change and needs to change now
- in just 10 years, our baby
boomers will be entering the
Social Security program it
needs to be changed the sooner
the better."
This is abusive and disgraceful.
Let us force our "elected protec-
tors" to keep their personal agen-
da were it belongs and not with-
in a government-sponsored help
line, paid with our tax dollars.
Keep my green tea warm, and I
will talk to you next week.

SUMTER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, AUGUST 18, 2005, PAGE 5


Council member battles cancer Bushnell youth headed to Washington


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Way back when she was a
teenager, Marilyn McCray did
a little smoking.
It wasn't much and she did-
n't for long, but these days,
she's warning kids to stay
away- even for a short period
of time.
That's because McCray
learned in December that she
has lung cancer.
She's spent the last eight
months undergoing chemo
and radiation treatments -
she's dropped six sizes in
clothes.
"I lost all my hair, oh I cried
so," she said.
"I still do sometimes."
But even with the tears and
the hair loss and the pain,
McCray still has her sense of
humor.
"The doctor says I'm cute
with a bald head. I'm the only
black woman : in the county
with a bald head," she said.
with a laugh, adding that she's
used to having a full head of
hair.
"I've got my life. I can wear
a wig and be as cute."
How her body reacts in the
next little bit of time will
determine whether or not
she'll undergo more surgery.
She went to the doctor in
December for the pain, think-
ing she had pulled a muscle.
She said -doctors, first,
noticed something and
thought she had pneumonia,
but nothing helped.
They eventually realized it
was cancer and she's been
undergoing treatment ever
since. ". .
". She's sharing her story and
her faith in God, which she
said is 'the most important
thing it's what's gotten her,
through
She's also sharing her story
to warn others to stay away
from smoking and to let resi-
dents know what's going on
with her.
"Those that are smoking,
they really need to stop.
"I tell my own children -
don't' smoke."
"It's really truly a bad
thing," she said of what she's
been through.
"I just want the people to


know," she said, mentioning
the residents of Coleman who
elected her to represent them
on the city council.
She's spent a total of 17
years as a-council member.
. She said she's very grateful
for all the things people have
been doing for her from res-
idents to city leaders to
church leaders, people have
gathered up donations to help
McCray with finances.
She still has a daycare, but

is unable to work as a teacher,
which she misses terribly she
said.
She's also without insur-
ance and up until last week,
she was taking 41 pills a day to
help with the pain. She had a
bag filled with $2,500 worth of
medication.
She's experienced breath-
ing problems and pain so
severe she couldn't stand it.
This, week, she's down to
three pills a day.
It's a pain that. nobody
wants to experience, she said.
"I didn't ask for and I cer-
tainly wouldn't wish it on any-
body else."
McCray said she was actual-
ly on lethal doses of medica-
tion, in order to help with the
pain.
"Some of the doctors could-
n't believe it."
She's hoping she'll be able
to go back to work next year.
"Right now I feel good, but I
don't have, the energy to
work," she said, adding that
the radiation and chemo are
draining.
"I can't get in the sun."
She cited the emotions she's'
experienced and 'crying over
her hair.
"When you share your good,
that's when your good will
come back to you," she said of
the way to live life.
But don't do it to gain., "Do it
because you see a need," she
said of doing [or others.


"Brotherly, sisterly love we
gotta have that and that's the
way we should we live every-
day."
She's also begun to, "Live
each day like it's my last,
because you know what? It
could be my last. We never
should take anything for
granted. God has healed my
body but Pve still got to fight.
"Only God has brought me
through what I've been
through only God can. do it.
He has delivered me and
I don't take it for granted."
She looks back and has no
doubt that God sent the doc-
tors who took care of her,
She said her surgeon who
locked hands with her, and
her husband Celvin, to pray
before she went into, sur-
gery. He successfully
removed two of her lymph
nodes and right now her
body is showing clear
"You gotta have faith. He
said just the faith of a mustard
seed. So I've got that faith."
She asks that others contin-
ue to pray for her, "And I'll do
the same for them. I'm not
gone yet."
"I'm going to sing again,"
she said.
McCray and her sisters love
to sing.
"I sing everyday now,
though not as well. It's some-
thing I gotta do."
The couple has been mar-
ried more than two decades
and he's been there with her
through everything.
They've got six kids and "my
nine grandbabies."
She said she knows there's
a purpose for what's going on
in her life and not long after
that, considered the affect her,
illness- has had on others
around her.
"All my family, my sisters -
its drawn us together," she
said, adding that it even
seems to have 'drawn resi-
dents of Coleman closer as
they work to help her.
"So much good has come
out of my sickness."
These days, she's watching
what she eats she doesn't
want to gain her weight back,
but said she doesn't want to
lose it the way she did last
time.

"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.

Plan today for peace of mind tomorrow!

Get lots of love from Guliver, a five-year-old mix


Maranda and Wesley Gill


Marlin and Gill wed


Maranda Marlin, daughter
of Kenny and.Lisa Krupenski
of Webster, and the late
Robby Martin, was married
June 11, 2005, to Wesley Gill,
son of Elizabeth Gill of
Webster, and the late Mark
Gill.
Rev. Jerry Alexander per-
formed the ceremony at
Croom-A-Coochee Baptist
Church, followed by a recep-
tion,in the social hall.
The bride is a graduate orf
Marantha Christian
Academy and is employed at
Leesburg OBGYN and
Associates.
The groom is a graduate of


Omega High School, having
been home schooled for 12
years.
He also played Varsity
Baseball for four years at
South Sumter High School
and Varsity Football for one
year.
He is enrolled at Lake
Sumter Community College
where he will pursue a
degree in sports medicine.
He is also on the Lake
Sumiter Communiity College
Baseball Team.
. The couple enjoyed a hon-
eymoon cruise to the
Bahamas. They are currently
living in Webster.


Guliver is an adorable 5-
pound Chihuahua mix. He is
quite the character once you
get to know him. Guliver gives
lots of kisses and lots of love. If
you are interested in adopting
Guliver, call the Humane
Society/SPCA of Sumter
County at 793-9117 and leave
your name, address, and
phone number. Or e-mail us
at:. Visit our new web address

Many people still seem to
confuse the Humane
Society/SPCA with Animal
Control. Animal Control is an
agency of Sumter County, with
county paid employees. When
animals are picked utip by
Animal Control Officers, they
are brought to the county's
facility where they have three
days to live before they are
euthanized.
The Humane Society/SPCA
is a non-profit organization
with an all volunteer work-
force. The Humane
Society/SPCA rescues adopt-
able animals from Animal
Control before they are put
down. The animals are put
into our adoption program,
where they are given veteri-
narian care, vaccinations, and
are spayed and neutered.
There is NO time limit on how
long we keep our animals.
Adoptable dogs and cats will
stay in our foster care until
they find a home no matter
how long it takes!

for this service. When an ani-
mal is in imminent danger, the
Society then calls for assis-
tance from law enforcement
or Animal Control Officers to
impound the animal.
Immediate medical care,
which is often necessary for
these animals, is paid for by
the Humane Society/SPCA. It
is not the policy of Sumter
County to pay for the medical
care of animals that are
impounded, so to elevate their
suffering, the Society takes on
the medical expense. The
Humane Society/SPCA then
works with law enforcement
to bring animal cruelty
charges against the person
who victimized the animal.

Demonstrations, etc. The
Society sponsors PAWS, a pet
therapy program, where dogs
are trained and certified to
visit nursing homes, hospitals,
schools, and libraries.

ly attend education and train-
ing courses. Current informa-

highest standards of animal
care and keeping the public
informed on new issues and
ideas forming in the humane

show a commitment to serve
the animals and the communi-


ty by attending these courses
at their own expense.

mals are all done from dona-
tions. The Society receives no
money from the county, state,
or other humane organiza-
tions.
The donations from com-
passionate citizens, :and the
efforts of our volunteers, is
what so many homeless and
abused animals depend on for
help.

How do Sumter County Fire Explorers like to spend their weekends? For the last weekend in July the answer was... camping.
Sumter County Fire Explorer Post 2911 spent the weekend at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa at their Lake Lewis facility.
Activity was the key word for the weekend with MacDill hosting a number of events including movies and bowling, visits to the
K-9 Kennels for a Military Dog demonstration and the SP Armory for weapons demonstration, a tour of the Flight-Line Control
Tower, and the highlight to our young aspiring firefighters, a visit to the Flight'-Line Fire Department. Even the summer heat
could not:diminish the enthusiasm the group showed during their tour of the fire station. To be sure there was an abundance of
animated discussion of both the differences and the similarities in the military and civilian fire service.
.lThe Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County made some
gains last week, thanks to a
donation by Prosthetics
--. FResearch Specialists owners
and society members Linda
0 and Ronnie Graves. The
... Graves purchased a home in
Bushnell and donated rev-
enues made from the sale of
its contents to the organiza-
tion. Those shown (back row,

Orlando Hunting Summit


and duck calling contest


or years there has been
talk amongst the differ-
ent hunter groups from
all around Florida of getting


together to have a
summit and discuss
problems and solu-
tions for the trouble
hunting is undergo-
ing in the state.
-First of all, hunt-
ing has always been
a part of mankind's
lifestyle and still is
today. The big dif-
ference in a hunter
today and in the
past is now most
hunters hunt for the
sheer enjoyment
where in the old


JAMIE
Outdoor


days many hunters often had
to hunt to provide food for the
table.
In Florida we have plenty of
game left in some places. But,
with the development of so
much of the good habitat, our
wild game needs places
where game can survive.
Hunting in Florida has
been in a high rate of decline
for more than 20 years and a
summit was recently held in
Orlando to try and figure out
what was causing this decline.
Strangely, the summit was
held at one of the ultra fancy
resorts not too far from the big.
tourist attractions which I
thought was a little odd as the
people who run those tourist
traps for the most part are
extreme anti-hunters.
For my part I would have
liked to h&ve seen the summit
held at a place with at least a
few real. living acorn produc-
ing oak trees within a mile or
two anyway. In fact, where the
summit was held used to be a
part of my old patrol area
when I was a game warden
and this area only a few years
ago was a virtual paradise for
all kinds of native wild game.
Today, anywhere within
miles of this place you are
mighty lucky to see anything
alive other than gawking peo-
ple from all over the world
speaking languages I did not
even know existed.
You might if you are
extremely lucky see a live crit-
ter or two but don't expect it
be anything other than possi-
bly a scavenging disoriented
crow or a hapless salt sick
sparrow or two trying to sur-
vive on the leavings of the dis-
carded hot dogs left on the
sidewalks and streets by
uncaring tourists.
My friends, what you are
more likely to see is plenty of
foreign made and imported
florescent pink colored plas-
tic flamingos adorning little
manmade ponds with quaint
little artificial water falls
squirting recycled water into
the air and then falling back
into shiny green slimy pools of
filth under the watchful eye of
a ceramic bloated toad frog.
Oh well, it's well document-
ed as to my feeling about what
is happening to Florida with
regards to our beautiful state
as it is being cemented and
asphalted over.
As far as the hunting sum-
mit went, I managed to sit
through three days of trying to
listen to speakers from all
over the U.S. telling us
Cracker hunters all that was
bad wrong with our state and
we ought to be doing things
the way they do where they
came from.
When all this finally settled
around the summit and we
Florida huriters got a chance
to say our piece, we let the
FWC wildlife biologist
experts know what was really
taking place that was causing
folks to quit hunting in droves.
The reason has been obvi-
ous to hunters for years. The
rules and regulations are out
of control to the point that


some of the dedicated game
wardens themselves can't pos-
sibility keep up with them. A
few good places to hunt are
still available but
they all have so
many stupid and
unnecessary rules
relating to them
that is making
hunting a burden
instead of a pleas-
ure.
To make matters
even worse, the
Game Commission
has a set of quota
ADAMS system rules for
r Writer getting a permit to
hunt you have to
jump through that
is the worst system in the
entire United States. This asi-
nine quota system is beyond
being terrible and the hunters
attending the summit let the
FWC leadership know this in
no uncertain terms.
Folks, you can bet the lead-
ership of the Fish and Wildlife
Commission got their ears full
and things had better start
taking a different course as
far as taking care of all
hunters in Florida or there
may be a major move to
replace the top leadership of
the FWC.
There were three of the
FWC Commissioners at the
meeting and they heard first
hand the hundreds of com-
plaints coming from the
ticked off hunters instead of
been fed a bunch of same old-
same old garbage from the
FWC staff in Tallahassee.
I am glad I went to the sum-
mit for several reasons. One of
the main ones is that the com-
mission finally got to hear
about the real problems con-
cerning not only wild game
but they got the hard facts on
the black bear situation and
the out of control problems
that is going on with alligators.
If you can believe it, there are
only going to be 4,000 gator
hunting permits issued and
the FWC wheels themselves
know that at least a quarter of
a million gators need to be
harvested to bring the gator
population anywhere near the
safe numbers it should be.
The FWC should be very
well aware of some very seri-
ous problems with the way
they are administering all
hunting. from gators to squir-
rels. in Florida; hopefully the
three commissioners who
were at the summit will get
the ball moving and start to
take corrective actions.
On a much brighter side
there is going to be a Florida
State Duck calling contest
held in Orlando on the 28th of
August (2:30 p.m.) at the Bass
Pro Shop in Orlando.
There are a lot of duck
hunters in the state and you
guys and gals need to get over
to Orlando and participate or
at the least attend and give
your duck hunting buddies
some support. A duck-calling
contest is a barrel of fun to
attend and even if you don't
hunt duck you can have an
afternoon of great family fun.
There is a small fee to enter
the contest but there are also
some mighty fine prizes if you
win and if you should win the
contest you will get to repre-
sent the state of Florida at
Stuttgart, Arkansas for the
nation championship.
Registration for the contest is
at noon on. the Aug. 28. Hope
to see you all there.
For more information give
Mark Stepbach, the event
chairman, a phone call as he
is in charge of the event and,
by the way, a good buddy of
mine as well as being a world
class duck calling champion
himself. His number is (352)

LANDFILL

continued from Page 1
land and one half-mile from
any private wells or existing or
proposed community or
regional water system.
Landfill sites would be
restricted to agricultural or
industrial land use areas and
would have to be on land abut-
ting properties with like desig-
nations.
There are also many other
provisions covering a broad
spectrum of issues, including
water table elevations, moni-
toring wells and related test-
ing, access roads, structures,
construction standards and
operation.
Development Services
Director Robbie Rogers led off
the comments on the proposal.
The committee that worked on
the regulations decided early
in the process to try to create
rules that would balance pri-
vate property rights, environ-
mental concerns and commu-
nity needs.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
(FDEP) already has many
technical rules for landfills,
Rogers said. But, few on siting
of landfills and impacts on
neighboring properties.
"That was a major concern
of the committee," she said.
While the board received
written comments from
sources such as engineers and
consultants on various aspects
of the proposal, engineer
David Springstead, landfill
operator Randy Messer and
Jeff Wild, an installer of land-
fill liners, were the only three
industry-related people to
address the board.
In general, the committee
did a "great job," Springstead
said. But, there were some
technical issues that he dis-
agreed with.
Specifically, Springstead
said that the requirement for a
,100-mil thickness plastic land-
fill liner might not be desir-
able as the state-required 60
mil.
Springstead claimed that
because of the extra thickness
of the material, there could be
a problem with the "welding"
or bonding of the sheets of the
material it could become brit-
tle and leak
"Going to 100 mil will not get
you much more environmental
protection," Wild said.
Springstead .and Wild sug-
gested that'the 60-mil, double
liners would be the most effec-
tive.
But, what happens if you
develop a leak, Commission
Chairman Joey Chandler


asked.
The second liner will claim
any leaks, Wild responded.
"But what if the second liner
leaks," Chandler asked.
In that case, there would
have to be more monitoring
wells to determine the extent
of flow if the contaminants and
possibly an attempt to inter-
cept the flow with some sort of
barrier, Wild said.
In response to additional
questions from Chandler, Wild
acknowledged that in some sit-
uations, the landfill materials
could be removed and the con-
taminants removed from the
ground.
"There is no real answer to a
worse case scenario,"
Thornton said. Later, he added
that with "the current history
with liners, we're not getting
the leaks."
Chandler did not appear to
be satisfied with the answers.
"Why do we need all the moni-
toring wells if this works so
good?"
Thornton noted that the
results from liners depend
upon the experience and thor-
oughness of the people
installing them.
"Wouldn't the county moni-
tor the installation,"
Commissioner Michael
Francis asked.
There are ample regulations
for that, Wild responded.
The only citizen comments
came from Bushnell area resi-
dent Jack Bratton.
"Are we considering this to
accommodate a landfill or to
prevent one," Bratton asked.
"Neither," Chandler
responded.
Bratton also asked about
what happens if there is a fail-
ure.
Springstead said there
would be more wells, monitor-
ing and testing to determine a
plan for containing the con-
tamination.
Bratton also wanted to know
if the county would monitor
the landfill.
Monitoring would be by the
FDEP, Thornton said.
But, the landfill would be
subject to random inspections
by the county, Rogers said.
Chandler also raised one of
the oldest issues related to
solid waste disposal in the
county. "I know I've asked
before, but is there anyway to
keep this strictly a county
landfill," he asked.
No, you cannot impede com-
merce, was the answer from
Thornton. However, he noted,
it might be legal for a landfill
business to adopt a police \ to
only accept garbage from
inside the county.
Other issues included set-
backs from property lines. ,
* Springstead .asked that the


board consider reducing the
setbacks to adjoining parcels
is those were industrial use.
He also suggested that
instead of requiring "split sam-
pling" of monitoring wells, that
the county should instead pick
someone to test the wells.


FUN

continued from Page 1
brought a sprinkler and
another a Slip and Slide and


before you knew it all of the
children were getting wet
and cooling off.
Of course, it wasn't all chil-
dren that were having fun
dousing each other with ice
water, either.


The piece de resistance of
the day was a visit from
Wildwood fire truck 131 with
a tank full of water.
Children of all ages joined
in getting doused by the fire
hose.

and R.C. Roper
(third) at the end of
35-laps.
Leading from the
drop of the green
flag in four divi-
sions included
Kyle Bookmiller in
Modified action for
his first trip to vic-
tory lane (Jimmy
IM Wagner, Stephen
INGER Harbuck, Robert
Ray and Tommy
Schnader followed,
respectively); Stephen


Anderson in Sportsman
action with Johnny Sanders
finished second, Bob
Masciarelli third, Mike
Veltman fourth and Rick Kase
fifth; Chris Hooker in Mini
Stocks over Jay McKenzie,
William Prevatt, George
Neumann and' Mike Curry;
and Todd Downs in a flag to
flag win ahead of Artie
Hewitt, Mike Wedlick, James
Batson, John Zuidema; and
Kevin Stone in 4-cylinder
Bomber action over Will
Curry, Rusty Adams, Jesse
Mullis and Tim Herrington.


Taking the checkered flag
in Thunder Stocks was Wayne
Heater over D.J. Macklin,
Louie Coie, Mike Loudy and
Steve Stinedurf.
Red, green, yellow, white,
checkered. The Figure 8 divi-
sion saw it all. In the end it
was Darryl Hage in victory
lane over Seth Nistok,
Rodney Davis, Gary Swing
and Clifford Rousseau.
The most curious display of
flags came when starter Brent
FIlts dropped the checkered
flag. Now, I've been covering
race action since 1989 at


Citrus County Speedway (and
one year at Ocala Speedway)
and I can honestly say I've
never actually seen a flagman
drop a flag before.
With that said, I fully antici-
pated giving him the black-
flag for his action (or lack of in
this case) but his willingness
to assist Jay Reagan when a
medical emergency material-
ized in the grandstands I feel
compelled to overlook this
incident and instead award
him .with his own checkered
flag (attached with a Velcro'
strap of course for easy han-


dling).
And speaking of Reagan,
two emergencies in the grand-
stands and a handful of on-
track incidents was proof of
the racetrack's ability to deal
with safety-related incidents
without any .outside assis-
tance.
For that, a trip to victory
lane should be forthcoming.
Next Saturday night Will
see the return of the Late
Models, Gulf Coast Modifieds,
Mini Cup Cars, Super. Socks,
Mini Stocks, Thtiuder:.cks
