Couple recovering, dog shot in home invasion


Pastor and his wife were

injured in getaway collision


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

A Sumterville woman's dog
was shot to death and a couple
was injured following a home
invasion last week that result-
ed in the arrest of two sus-
pects.
Darriohn Nyvar Pryor, 25,


Clearwater, was arrested for
armed burglary, grand theft
and aggravated assault with a
weapon. Bond was set at
$30,000.
Demarkriis Eugene Boles,
23, Trilby, was arrested for
armed burglary, grand theft,
use of a firearm during com-
mission of a felony, resisting
an officer without violence


Darriohn Nyvar Pryor
and criminal mischief. Bond
was set at $61,000.,
Both subjects were 'trans-
ported to the Sumter County
Sheriff's Detention Center. .


Demarkriis Eugene Boles
The incident began about
12:44 p.m., on Wednesday, Jan.
18, when the suspects showed
up at the home of a 46-year-
old Sumterville woman, on


County Road 522, according to
sheriff's Lt. Bobby Caruthers.
"They came to her door and
when she opened it, they.
asked her for narcotics,Q'
Caruthers said. "She said she
didn't have any and closed the
door."
After she closed the door on
the men, Boles is suspected of
pulling out a semi-automatic
handgun and kicking in the
door, Caruthers said.
The woman, after calling
911, ran out the backdoor of
her home, he said. Once
inside the home, the men


were confronted by her
mixed-breed dog that they
shot three times and killed.
The men took a Playstation
'2 video game and a candle
from the residence and fled in
a blue 2001 Buick.
A deputy passed the vehicle
on County Road 533 and a pur-
suit began, Caruthers said.
The subjects attempted to
ram a sheriff's patrol car turn-
ing off of State Road 470 and
continued into the landfill on

BOB REICHMAN-

The plans were straightfor-
ward but that didn't mean
county commissioners had an
easy time trying to determine
how to expand and build
county offices.
Commissioners met
Monday afternoon in a work-
shop session to review archi-
tectural plans prepared by
Long and Associates to con-
struct new county offices and
renovate existing space in the
Sumter County Courthouse
and Judicial Building.
Early into the meeting, it
was obvious that Long's plans
had a long way to go before
co commissioners would d reach

about all county offices
inchlding the tax collector,

sor of elections, sheriff's
office, state attorney's office,
administration, clerk of the
circuit court, judicial services
and zoning and development.
Lex Long presented pre-
liminary drawings of new
office; spaces and buildings
that had commissioners
immediately making modifi-
cations and questioning how
the plans came together.
County Commissioner Jim
Roberts appeared perplexed
by some of the designs that
had not been considered or
discussed by a special build-
ing committee of which
Roberts is a member. The
committee was- created to
help steer the county's build-
ing needs.
Roberts repeatedly ques-
tioned Long about how he
had received information to
design certain building
spaces that did not come from
recommendations from the
committee.
Some of the design work
came from meetings with
department heads and consti-
tutional officers who provid-
ed input into the housing
needs, he said.
Long told commissioners
that the plans "are a work in
progress."

Panasoffke couple rescued after airboat overturns


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Thanks to a small fire they
started, a stranded couple
whose airboat overturned on
the Withlacoochee River
Monday was safely rescued that
night.
Charlie and Minjalee
Salamone, of 'Lake
Panasoffkee, were both wet but
in good health when Sumter
rescue personnel finally locat-
ed them along the banks of the
river about four miles from
where they launched their new
airboat earlier that day, accord-
ing to sheriff's Lt. Bobby


Caruthers.
The couple was reported
missing about 8 p.m. by a neigh-
bor, Larry Smith.
Earlier that day, Salamone
showed Smith the couple's new
airboat and told him that they
were going to take it out for a
try near the Wysong Dam,
according to Caruthers.
. When Smith noticed that the
couple had not returned home
by 7:30 p.m., he got worried and
drove out to the dock near the
dam, Caruthers said.
When Smith found the cou-
ple's vehicle and boat trailer in
the parking lot, he informed
friends who launched a search
for the couple in theirpontoon


During an extension search, helicopter pilot
Deputy Brent Evans noticed what appeared to
be a small fire near the river about four miles
south of where the couple launched their boat.


boat.
"With no results, Smith con-
tacted the sheriff's office say-
ing they had left that day about
3:30 p.m. and were still miss-
ing," Caruthers said.
The sheriff's office launched
a search which included using
their helicopter, airboat, fire
department personnel and offi-


cers of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
During an extension search,
helicopter pilot Deputy Brent
Evans noticed what appeared
to be a small fire near the river
about four miles south of where
the couple launched their boat
The pilot then directed other


searchers to the area where the
couple was found about 9:45
p.m. beside a small fire they
had started on the bank of the
river, Caruthers said.
The couple's airboat had
overturned in the middle of the
river and they swam to the
shore and started the fire to
alert help, he said.
The couple was in good con-
dition although Mrs. Salamone
had numerous mosquito bites
and showed some signs of dehy-
dration, Caruthers said.
"Without that fire, they might
have been there all night," said
Evans.
I "They did a good job of
starting that signal fire."

vant who always wanted to
come back and serve the com-
munity that he grew up in,"
said his daughter Jeana
Wresh.
"That was very important to
him," and he did so through-
out his career, she said.
He believed that diverse
communities could come
together as a benefit for all.
He would debate with you
but was very open minded,
regardless of the subject,
according to Wresh.
Strickland was born in
Wildwood in 1931.
He grew up in this commu-
nity, she said, adding that he
was a 1949 graduate of
Wildwood High School.
He went to college, spent
some time in the United
States Army, but returned to
teach and serve in the local
school district.
As for things she learned
from him, she said that was,
"Definitely the openness to
live and experience different
things and not be judgmental
of them. Compassion and for-
giveness."
He was married to Peggy
Mills Strickland and had
Wresh and two sons.
He and Edwards became.
friends while teaching at
Wildwood High School. After
that, they spent years working
.as a team for Sumter County,
even going on to serve on the
Sumter County School board
together. with Strickland as
superintendent .
Strickland really loved the
kids, he said.
"He was devoted to kids in
school and his family."
His love for children
showed through not in his


BUILDING

continued from Page 1

While no plans were final-
ized, here are some of the plans
that were considered.
A new 90,000-square-feet,
three-story county administra-
tion building .is proposed for
construction directly east of the
Sumter County Judicial
Building. The building would
be substantially larger than
either the existing courthouse
or the Judicial Building.


Voice and speech, but in his
efforts to secure and main-
tain good quality teachers,"
Edwards said.
"That was his priority"
And one of his joys in life
was to be at graduation cere-
monies for both the high
schools, as the students
received their diplomas.
Even after Strickland
retired, he spent five or six
years lobbying for funds -
focusing on insuring ade-
quate salaries for personnel
and construction funds for-
quality school facilities.
"He was interested in our
community college and
played a role in securing
that," Edwards said. And
though not a prime mover in
obtaining' the Sumter cam-
pus, he was active in that
effort.
"He led our schools
through the integration
process," Edwards said,
explaining that Strickland
worked with the community
to make things happen as eas-
ily as possible.
During integration,
Strickland dealt with some
student walkouts and difficul-
ties between communities
and administration.
"One of the things that Joe
was very good at was meeting
with people one-on-one and
meeting with people in
groups."
Under his administration,
three new schools were built
in Sumter County Wildwood
and South Sumter high
schools .and Lake
Panasoffkee Elementary.
When, spending construc-
tion funds, Strickland worked
to pull. most of the money
from state tax dollars.
"He looked after the inter-
est of our taxpayers,"
Edwards said.
Edwards recalled concerns
for a north, south rivalry and


A new 9,000-square-feet one-
story state attorney's office is
proposed as an addition on the
south side of the Judicial
Building. Commissioners are
also considering whether to
keep the addition one-story or
make it a two-story addition.
A new building to house
Planning and Development
services is proposed for con-
struction south of the Judicial

Building.
With current parking at a
premium around the existing
county government complex, a
substantial amount of new
parking spaces are also includ-,


ed in the plans.
Currently, the complex has
parking for about 310 vehicles.
New parking areas would
increase that amount to spaces
for at least 1,354 vehicles.
For most constitutional offi-
cers, the proposed plans did
not appear to provide enough
space for their future needs.
The exception to that rule was
office plans for the tax collec-
tor's department and the prop-
erty appraiser's department,
which would be located on the.
first floor of the proposed'
administration building.
While commissioners begin


the process of making changes
to the plans, the project is
scheduled for completion in
2015.
Once commissioners agree to
plans for the governmental
complex, they will still have to
address the growing need for
additional governmental office
space in The Villages, said
Commissioner Michael
Francis.
While The Villages currently
houses an annex for govern-
ment facilities, about .65,000-
square-feet of-space \% ill soon
be needed .to accommodate
county services, Francis said.

pointed out that building two
high schools was a concern.
"But his vision was good.
He saw down the road, saw
the need for two schools."
He' said Strickland was a
financial wizard, with a grasp
on funding.
He was prepared for board
meetings and gave members
as much information as he
could when he made recom-
mendations. His staff at that
time included Billy Suber,
Millie Mizell and Edwards.
With humor, Edwards went
on to say that Strickland,
"Certainly let us know that he
was going to make the final
decision," but wanted to hear
their thoughts and opposi-
tion.
But there were also times
when he would take their
advice and change direction.
"He valued people who
would speak up."
When Strickland served as
superintendent, board mem-
bers in the early years includ-,
ed Joe Merritt, Irwin Brian,
Sherman Wilson, Aubrey
Caruthers and Bobby
Shoemaker.
Over the years he also
worked with John Wallace
and Rose Lee Tomberlin.
Other successes during his
tenure included being one of
the first counties to develop-a
countywide in-service train-
ing program for instructional
and non-instructional person-
nel and initiating a school-
based management concept
With citizen, principal and
teacher involvement.
Strickland had. an early
bout with lung cancer, more
than two decades ago. He had
surgery then and didn't
encounter any more prob-
lems with it, but he began to
battle cancer and heart prob-
lems in recent years.
Strickland claimed
Methodist affiliation, but he


attended and served in the
Baptist church with his wife
Peggy until her death.
He earned his .master's
degree at the University of
Florida and was a leader in
teacher organizations, locally
and at the state level, spend-
ing time in Tallahassee.
Those affiliations include the
Florida Educator's
Association, retired
Superintendent's Association
and the North East Florida
Education Consortium.
He was a teaching princi-
pal at Coleman Elementary
School before returning to
Wildwood High School as
principal. Edwards served as
assistant principal during
those years.
Strickland eventually
became School Board super-
visor of instruction and was
president of the Florida
Educational Association for
one term.
He became Sumter County
school superintendent and
was active in the Lion's Club.
Strickland even worked to
make the Lake Miona Golf
Course and Country Club
happen.
He is survived by his sons:
Jody Strickland, Jr. and his
wife Pat, of Wildwood; Jesse
Shane Strickland, of
Wildwood; his daughter
Wresh arid her husband
William of Melissa, Texas. He
is also survived by his grand-
children: Jesse and his wife
Ruthie, Arfber, Jared and
Rachel; his brother Frank of
Wildwood; his sister Mina
Sue Merrick and her husband
Bill, of Clarksville, Ga.
Funeral services were held
at the Assembly of God
Church in Oxford at 2 p.m., on

ed reactions to increasUERd police presence



Mixed reactions to increased police presence


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Some Wildwood residents
have differing views about.
changes going on in the city,
which has been growing at a
rapid pace.
One change that has pro-
voked both criticism and
praise is the increased police
presence in some areas, made
possible with the addition of
three new police officer posi-


tions funded by a $5 police
user fee -added to residents'
utility bills last summer.
Since then, the presence of
police patrolling in vehicles
and on foot has increased
along with the numbers of
drug arrests, but not everyone
is happy about it.
Four residents from one
neighborhood, labeled a high-
risk drug area, complained to
the City Commission Monday,
claiming the police have been


harassing and threatening
them.
Edward Barkley, who lives
near Jackson Street, said
police have been telling peo-
ple there not to walk on the
sidewalks.
"If I'm not breaking the law,
then why harass me?" he
asked.
Another area resident,
Tracy Seabrooks, said the
police have asked her 13-
year-old daughter for identifi-


cation. "They're telling these
kids they need I.D.," she said.
Mayor Ed Wolf said the
police are there because
other residents want them to
be.
"They're there at' the
request of the folks that live
there," and police are trying
to curtail illegal activity, he
said.
Wildwood Police Captain
E.W Reeser said he wasn't
aware of officers telling peo-


ple not to walk on the side-
walks.
He also said there has been
a positive response from
Wildwood residents regard-
ing the additional police
work.
"I've never heard more
compliments on what's being
done here," Reeser said.
City Commissioner Pamela
Harrison-Bivins asked that
the police officers talk to the
people "without asserting


authority and build a relation-
ship with them if at all possi-
ble."
However, some audience
members disagreed with
Barkley and Seabrooks.
Annette Colston, pastor of
Mount Moriah A.M.E. Church,
was one of two women who
told the commission the area
has improved.
"I personally want to say
thank you. It is a totally differ-
ent area" now, she said.


Soup kitchen serves up



hot meals with a smile


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Volunteers come to a
Wildwood soup kitchen every
weekday to help out those in
need, with plenty of hot
meals and warm smiles to go
around.
Last Friday was a typical
day at the Wildwood
Methodist Church dining
hall, where about 90 meals
had already been served by
the middle of lunch hour.
The room quickly filled
with people eating a lunch of
spaghetti and meatballs,
green beans, bread, and
slices of cake and pie.
The numerous volunteers
come together from different
churches in Wildwood,
Oxford, The Villages, and
Tavares.
On an average, they pro-
vide between 150 and 190
meals each day, many of
which are delivered to
homes of people who are
unable to come to the church.
Wildwood resident Phyllis
Guillot, just shy of her 80th
birthday, has been working at
the soup kitchen since it

"Sometimes we don't have
many choices (of food to
serve). but we're always able
to prepare a good meal," she
said.
On holidays there are the
traditional meals like turkey
at Thanksgiving and spiral
ham at Christmas.
'While there are people
who eat at the church out of
necessity, she said others
come for the companionship

Marilyn and Stephen
Rogers are former volunteers
who come to the soup kitchen
often. Marilyn said they're
unable to volunteer because
of health. reasons, but they
"still come to gab."
The soup kitchen can be as


important to some of its vol-
unteers as it is to the people
who eat there.
*"I just enjoy the work. I
would be lost without it,"'
Guillot said.
S"It's very rewarding."
There is no shortage of vol-
unteers, either, In fact, they


have a waiting list for people
.who wish to join their ranks.
Joanne Wendel, who
attends New Covenant
United Methodist Church in
The Villages, coordinates the
soup kitchen and said
around 39,000 meals were
served last year.

Welcome aboard


Bradley Arnold


W welcome aboard Bradley
Arnold, you're in for an
interesting ride.
As Sumter County's new county
administrator, the 37-year-old
Arnold joins county government
at a very interesting time. He's got
challenges ahead of him and he's
not entering his new county posi-
tion during a period of smooth
sailing.
In particular, Arnold is thrust
into his administrative role dur-
ing a time when there is substan-
tial unrest and concern about
development issues facing
Sumter.
With all the new mining inter-
ests hitting the county and a pro-
posal for a new landfill near
Sumterville, environmental
issues are topping Sumter's entry
into the new year.
A recent demonstration oppos-
Sing plans for the landfill and chal-
'lenges to-mining-operations speak
,of a changing Sumter County.
For many of his years as county
administrator, Bernard Dew
watched a county that was desper-
ate to attract new growth and
development. With Dew's recent
retirement, so go the days of
approving just about any new
growth project if it meant a few
more jobs. Just about anything
was acceptable if it provided a
shot in the arm for Sumter's floun-
dering economy.
For Arnold, those days are histo-
ry. Sumter County is one of the last


counties in this part of Florida to
feel the fury of development. But
it's happening now, and it's com-
ing at a rapid pace.
Surely one of Arnold's main mis-
sions will be to ensure that county
government is well prepared to
deal with the new growth propos-
als that are springing up.
Arnold will not be alone. More
than ever, County commissioners
will be making complicated and
technical decisions- involving
growth issues.
They will need to be more
reliant on a county staff that is
well prepared and well trained in
growth management.
We've already learned from
recent issues, that Sumter County
could use a better support staff as
it faces environmental issues.
Big development always seems
to bring with it, topnotch special-
ists to help promote the cause.
Sumter County heeds to be in a'
position where it can also provide
its specialists. Currently, there is a
gap.
As Arnold learns more and more
about the county, our hope is that
he becomes a thoughtful and
proactive leader, one who realizes
.the importance of growth but also '
the pitfalls that can come with it.
Let's hope he hits the ground
running and he can use his expe-
rience to better equip the County
Commission with what it needs to
make the best decisions for the
people of Sumter County.

"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.

CENTRAL FLORIDA


Manufacturer's Seeking

Technical Skills in Workforce

WCF offers $50,000 Training Grants as Solution
ORLANDO, Fla...WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA
(WCF) releases the results of its Manufacturing Survey of 54
Manufacturing Association of Central Florida members
today. Survey highlights include:
Manufacturers most commonly report 10 to 20 openings
per year (43%) with the most common reason being growth
(49%).
Manufacturers' surveyed average hourly entry wage is
$8 to $10 (57%) with the average hourly wage being $12 to $16
(48%).
Manufacturers surveyed identified lack of soft skills
(22%) and lack of technical skills (20%) as the most common
challenges in filling vacancies. When asked to rate the sin-
gle biggest challenge, they identified lack of technical skills
as their number one issue.


In response to the survey results, and as part of the devel-
opment of WCF's Manufacturing Workforce Model, WCF
announces today that they are raising the maximum dollar
amount manufacturers may apply for on Employed Worker
Training grants from $25,000 to $50,000. These grants are
offered to employers to train their current workforce to help
upgrade their technical skills. To date, WCF has awarded
more than $600,000 in EWT to local employers.
WCF will continue in the development of its
Manufacturing Workforce Model, where already two focus
groups have taken place with thirty participants including
employers, educators and other partners. "Our goal is to
work with industry to identify manufacturers'specific work-
force needs, prioritize them, develop strategies to address
those ofhighest priority, and begin to work collaboratively to
find creative was to implement what's in the best interest of
our community," states Gary Earl, President & CEO of
WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA. This model is being
shaped after WCF's award-winning Healthcare Workforce
Model that has garnered state and national recognition,
brought partners together, and. resulted in many achieve-
ments including recently bringing a nearly $3 million grant
to Central Florida to expand capacity in local nursing pro-
grams. '
The manufacturer focus group will meet again in early
February and WCF expects to release a list of prioritized
needs and strategies in about six months.

The Business Assistance


Center moved into


its new headquarters


The Business Assistance
Center (BAC) at Lake Sumter
Community College in
Leesburg has moved into its
new headquarters and
launched a series of new serv-
ices for Sumter and Lake coun-
ty business people. The BAC is
now located just south of the
main LSCC campus on highway
441 in the completely renovat-
ed Furniture Country Building.
The Business Assistance
Center was formed to provide
the services necessary to help
new and existing businesses
succeed.
The BAC just designed and
implemented a new website for
businesses in Lake and Sumter
county that is focused upon
providing information to new
and existing businesses. For
the first time in the area, busi-
nesses can go to one place and
get answers to many of their
questions. The website offers
businesses an opportunity to
enter their email .addresses
and join the "BAC Quick
Connect" service. By entering
just your email, you will
receive timely information and


notices of events that impact
your business as well as a regu-
lar electronic newsletter which
will include financial and legal
articles. Please go to
www.lscc.edu/bac to view the
site. Your suggestions and ideas
are appreciated, as this will
continue to evolve over time.
In a collaborative effort with
SCORE, we are adding a sec-
tion to the website called
"Resources". This will be the
first business to business, coun-
ty-wide connection where busi-
ness owners and prospective
business owners can find the
attorneys, CPA's, consultants,
lending institutions,'etc. to help
them launch, grow, and run
their businesses. We will
charge a fee to the firms listing
their services and will have
each describe their specialties.
The banks will be able to
describe their loan offerings,
policies, and indicate who to
contact for their services.
' Also, in a joint effort with
SCORE, we are developing a
microloan program to service
new and existing businesses
that need funds, but may not


qualify for bank loans. The area
of Lake and Sumter Counties is
comprised of over 20,000 micro
enterprises, which means com-
panies with 5' employees or
less. It is our mission to help
those businesses flourish and a
microloan program is an inte-
gral part of that effort.
We are launching a series of 7
seminars that will be held once
a month for seven months. The
seminars are called "The Seven
Deadly Sins of Business". Each
seminar will run approximate-
ly 2 hours and will focus on one
each of the "Deadly Sins". The
seminars will be conducted in
such a manner as to allow each
person to directly apply it to
their business immediately.
They are slated to begin in
March of 2006.
Please check the BAC web-


site for further events such as a
"Business Law". day and a
"Financing your Business" day.
We are very open to any sugges-
tions on topics or services that
you feel would be important to
your efforts.
Our new center offers coun-
seling on several levels includ-
ing in-depth work through
SCORE counselors. We have a
new Business Information
Center which includes a com-
puter lab for use by any resi-
dent of Lake or Sumter county
and includes most business
software and Internet access.
We will be conducting work-
shops that are designed to help
business people employ tech-
nology from the basics of
understanding how to use ,a
computer .in any business to
advanced QuickBooks.


THE SALVATION ARMY SALUTES SUPPORTERS IN SUMTER COUNTY


"This past Thanksgiving and
Christmas season was a real
blessing to Eleanor. and I and
especially to all our volunteers
and supporters and to those
who we were able to assist and
make the holidays a bit
* brighter", said Bill Stewart,
Sumter County Service Center
Administrator. "This past sea-
son, We were able to assist 251
families representing 767 peo-
ple. Assistance included food,
clothing, and toys, as well as
emergency assistance with util-
ities, rent, prescriptions and
other basic necessities. It
would not have been possible
without the generosity of our
community", added Stewart
*There was a significant
increase in the number of vol-
unteer groups and organiza-
tions as Well as individual \ol-
unteers. Bell ri.geres, at the-
Red Kettles;. gave' more than
440 hours and collected over.
$7,000.00. Other volunteers
assisted with. taking applica-
tions for assistance, sorting'
gifts, placing Angel Trees and
Angels, as well as distributing
gifts and collecting food and
other donations.
"In fact", said Stewart "this
year we raised over $21,000.00
in our Red Kettles. That com-
pares to $14,000.00 in 2004.
Much of that was because of the
many volunteers whohelped us
and the stores who graciously
allowed us to place our Red
Kettles at their. businesses."
The host Red Kettle sites were.
Wal-Mart SuperCenter Store
#959 in Bushnell, Winn-Dixie
Marketplace #2320 in
Bushnell, and WinnrDixie
Marketplace #2321 in
Wildwood. Wal-Mart allowed
twice the number of collection
days due to the work of The
Salvation Army because of the
gulf region hurricanes in 2005.
The number of Angel Tree
sites also increased and this


year the sites included the
Bushnell Public Library,
Bushnell City Hall, Center
State Bank, SunTrust Bank in
Bushnell, Lake Panasoffkee,
and Wildwood, McDonalds
Restaurants in Bushnell and
Wildwood as well as at the First
Presbyterian Church in
Wildwood and United
Methodist Church is Bushnell
Wal-Mart in Bushnell and the
many individuals who also
"adopted" angels. Other sites
such as Habitat for Humanity
(in Wildwood) and the Dollar
Store (in Bushnell) collected
toys, food and other gift items.
There were 199 angels
returned with gifts that made
Christmas happier for chil-
dren, disabled adults and sen-
ior citizens.
The Salvation Army will con-
tinue its community service
through the year providing
emergency assistance to fami-
lies and individuals in need.
They also host the Home
League as part of their


Women's Ministries and they
also provide "League of Mercy"
visitation to area nursing
homes.
"Programs and services are
growing at such a rate that we
need more space", said Stewart
"We are hoping to find a space
that will accommodate our
offices as well as room for
meetings and storage. So far
we have found that available
space does not meet our needs
or our budget. We continue to
'pray that we will be directed to
a place that will enable us to be
of more service to our commu-
nity."
"We certainly cannot give
enough recognition and praise
to the many people and the
funds they donated to. make all
our services possible. We had
companies and businesses and
individuals who donated thou-
sands of dollars so that needy
people would have a better hol-
iday season and receive help.
throughout the year. Many peo-
ple in our community give reg-


ularly through our direct mail
appeal and others make dona-
tions anonymously and without
being asked"', said; Stewart.
Eleanor and I give thanks every
day that we have been able t6
become part of this. generous
and caring community. May
God bless our many supporters
who want to be sure that needy
people have their needs
addressed"', addedSt'ewart
The Salvation- Army is a
Participating Agency with
United Way of Lake & Sumter
Counties, and the Human Care
Network.


Preserving your'


investment
A proper sealcoating of a
parking lot does more than
increase the visual appeal of a
parking lot, it can add years to
its life. The moment asphalt is
laid it begins to deteriorate.
Rain, sun and traffic under-
mine the binder that holds the
asphalt together. Sealcoating
protects the asphalt from each
of these elements and provides
superior protection against
environmental distress.
Tim West Lot Maintenance
offers premium SealMaster
coal tar-sealers that have an
outstanding resistance to fuel,
moisture and oxidation.
SealMaster is the leading pro-


ducer of coal tar emulsion
pavement sealer. Tim West Lot
Maintenance also offers strip-
ping and traffic markings,
including handicap signs,
arrows and more.
Tim West Lot Maintenance
uses a slurry machine that
allows them to add additional
additives that will increase
resistance to oil, rain and


power steering fluid marks.,
The use of a slurry machines
provides an even coating of
sealant and ensures a smooth,
eye-catching appearance. From
driveways to RV parks there is
no'job too big or small. So for
better looking home or busi-
ness and longer lasting asphalt

MARKETING continuing
with the four (4) Ps of market-
ing we will consider PLACE
as this month's topic.
Decisions regarding place
will include selection an area
where your product or service
will have the best chance for
success. This will entail
researching the area, which
many small businesses do not
spend enough time at. The
lack of information, making a
wrong decision about place, is
often the cause of many small
business failures. Your deci-
sion should be based on a very
simple concept: 'Your success
depends on your product or
service being readily avail-
able to the consumer, and the
consumer must be readily
available to your product or
service".
Your type of business will
help determine the best place
for you to locate. A Retail
business relies heavily on
consumer availability to you.
Traffic Flow and Accessibility
are very important for this
type of business. Main streets
or a shopping center may be
best for your business. Traffic
and Accessibility.
A Wholesale Distributor or
Service Type business must
be readily available to the
customer Therefore, having a
good method of delivery and
access to various means of
transportation may be very


important factors in deter-
mining your place.
Downtown Main Street or
shopping center may not be
the best location and would
likely be more costly.
Spend time analyzing your
needs and the needs of your
customers. Don't be inahurry
your decision must last for a
period of time. Use CAU-
TION and determine the best
location to achieve success in
your business.

"Can Do" Elections Office Raises

$5,500 For New Hospice House


BUSHNELL The planned
Lane Purcell Hospice House is
closer to becoming reality,
thanks to the "can do" efforts of
the Sumter County elections
supervisor and her staff.
Karen Krauss pnd members
of her office recently presented
a check for $5,500 to go toward
construction of the new facility
in Sumterville. In accepting the
donation, Ted Williams, execu-
tive director of the Hospice
Foundation of Lake and Sumter,
and Hospice Foundation Board
President Alex Ogilvie praised
the group for its effort.
"This was completely their
idea," Williams said. "They
decided they wanted to do
something to help us support
patients and families facing life-
limiting illness. They'd heard
about our planned Hospice
House and made that their goal."
Krauss picked elections office
staffer Pat Lovett to organize a
variety of fund-raising events to
be held over a three-month peri-


od. With a September gospel
sing as the kickoff event, the
activities were designed to
appeal to a wide range of inter-
ests, Lovett explained.
This latest donation brings to
$1 million the amount raised so
far to build the Hospice House,
Williams said. He said a total of
$2.5 million will be needed to
construct the 8-bedroom home,
which will be built on donated
land near the Lake-Sumter
Community College campus in
Sumterville.
Hospice of Lake and Sumter
officials said the new facility is
being named in memory of Lane
Purcell, a former Sumter County
resident and well-known com-
munity leader.
When complete, the house
will provide warm, comfortable
living accommodations and full
Hospice services for patients
unable to remain in their own
homes. Each patient will have
his or her own room, complete
with private bath, screened


porch, bedside internet access,
and many other amenities, offi-
cials explained.
According to Williams, the
cost of half of the home's eight
planned patient rooms has
already .been covered by four
private contributions. "We still
have many donor opportunities
remaining," he added. Rooms
and other designated areas
within the Hospice House will
be permanently recognized with
appropriate plaques, Williams
said. Prospective donors are
invited to call him at 352-742-
6800 or toll-free 888-728-6234 for
more information.
Hospice of Lake and Sumter
is a not-for-profit, community
healthcare organization.
Hospice provides medical, nurs-
ing, emotional, spiritual, and
personal care services for
patients and families dealing
with any kind of serious, com-
plex illness. Hospice services
are provided according to need,
not the ability to pay.

Raiders take 50-45 win


against Nature Coast


STEVEN AYERS
Times Correspondent

The Raider Varsity squad
took the court against the
Nature Coast Sharks directly
after the JV squad got done
with their win last Friday
night in the Raider gym.
The game began with Travis
Hutcheson putting in points
on the scoreboard early into
the game with Shark John
Ortiz putting points on for
Nature Coast as well as boast-
ing a modest 2-point lead. The
Sharks kept their lead
throughout the 1st quarter. At
the end of the 1st the score
was 10-16 with the Sharks in
the lead.
Heading into the 2nd quar-
ter, John Ortiz and Mike
Dudek stood out offensively
for Nature Coast throughout
the quarter but Kendall


Smith, Charlie Breen and
Brandon Ward took the ball
all putting points on the
board. Dravious Rice came
out of his shell offensively as
well for the Raiders. The
score was tied up 16-16 but
was soon 18-16 with the
Sharks taking the lead
halfway through the 2nd quar-
ter. The Sharks maintained a
lead with a 20-16 score above
the Raiders. Ward played
aggressive and powerful
defense throughout the first
half for South Sumter to end
the first half with a score of
26-18 with South Sumter
behind a moderate 8 points.
The 3rd quarter started
with the 18-26 lead by Nature
Coast still predominant but
the Raiders came up on
points to create a lead of 35-26

The JV game began last
Friday night with a tight score
between the Nature Coast
Sharks and the South Sumter
Raiders, but midway through
the 1st quarter South Sumter
pulled ahead of Nature Coast
thanks in part to defensive
powerhouse Will Seward and
all-around stand out Jawad
Stephens. Also standing out
for the Raiders was Travis
Hutcheson throughout the
game.
The Raiders managed to
keep a solid lead against the
Sharks throughout the 1st half
with a 12-point lead early into
it. Seward showed his usual
aggressiveness on the court,
which continued into the 2nd
half. Patrick Mobley and
Yourhigness Morgan came out
in the latter half of the 1st half
with aggressive defense. 22-8
was the final score at the half
time break showing the
Raiders formidable lead


against the Nature Coast.
The Raiders came oiut
strong again at the beginning
of the 2nd half but halfway
through the 3rd quarter
Nature Coast managed to
come up on points thanks to
Sharks' Chris Bossio, Josh
Gambrel and Mike Cote.
Late into the 3rd quarter,
Nature Coast still lagged
behind with a 12-32 score.
Also late into the 3rd South
Sumter's standouts Seward,
Stephens and Sammy Morrill
continued to keep the points
for the Raiders high into the
4th quarter. The score was 38-
24 with South Sumter in the
lead.
Into the last quarter of the
game, the Raiders main-
tained their formidable lead
with Jawad Stephens- taking
fouls shots and making most
of them to boot. Josh Ortiz of
the Sharks stood out in the 4th
until the last seconds of the
game.
The final score of the game
was 62-31 with a Raider victo-
ry


.--Sprint.

Snow falls on

Snow days ,are usually
reserved for children up
north, and here in the
Sunshine State, a break from
school due to inclement
weather generally means
bJ waiting out a hurricane.
All that changed for the
%- prekindergarten students at
' North Sumter Primary School
0 in Wildwood on Friday, when
0 they were treated to their very
ft own "snow day."
The fact that the snow was-
t n't falling from the sky didn't
b stop the 4 anc. 5-year-olds
A from jumping into the slushy
: stuff, and they didn't hesitate
. to throw snowballs at each.
. other.
1- The "snow" was actually
shaved ice purchased from a
4 store, and it was laid on the
. ground just outside the two
pre-K classrooms where an
> anxious line of bundled-up
'f children waited to jump right
t in.
Teacher Lynn Ellis said
- they try to do something dif-
K ferent for the kids every
. Friday, and last week the two
prekindergarten classes were
having fun while learning a
lesson about the properties of
0- water.
"We said 'Well, if we can't
have snow,.we'll go .get it."'
According to Ellis, the stu-

agreed.
"It's fun because you can
throw it at somebody," she
said.
"It went through my gloves,"
said one of her peers, Dakota
Geoghan.
"It's very very cold.. It made
my hands red. It's fun to play
with."
Afterward, the kids sat
around on picnic tables, dis-
cussing the snow and sipping
hot cocoa. Their teachers
passed around a bowl con-
taining a more realistic ver-
sion of snow.
"We played with ice today,
but if you were up north, the
snow would feel different,"
Ellis told the classes.
She said this is the second
year they've had a "snow day"
at North Sumter Primary, and
the teachers try to be creative
when choosing Friday activi-
ties.
"This is one of the (events)
they really, like," she said.
Other activities Ellis and
another prekindergarten
teacher, Cindy Foster, plan for
the kids are circus day and PJ.
day.
The students were already
taken on an indoor camping
trip, when they roasted
marshmallows, went "fish-
ing,"' and.sang songs around a
make-believe fire.


Pre-K students at North Sumter Primary grab handfuls of
crushed ice on Jan. 20 outside their classrooms. The children
get to participate in a special activity every Friday, and last
Friday was "snow day."

against the Sharks which was
held throughout the 3rd and
going into the 4th. Those
responsible for South
Sumter's comeback were
Terry Mobley, Brandon Ward
and Kendall Smith, all stand-
ing out and showing excellent
skill on the court.
The last quarter of the
game, the 4th continued
South Sumter's lead at 31-21.
With only 3 minutes left in the


game the Raiders managed to
keep their lead thanks to the
standout from all four quar-
ters. The game got tight later
in the 4th with a 4 point lead
with 11 seconds left in the
game but with Marc Stephens
putting a 2 pointer, the final
score of the game was 50-45.
After the game Raider's
head coach Keith Hileman
commented with, "I thought
Terry Mobley had a great
game. He came up and scored
big in the 2nd half. We played
with energy in the 2nd that we
didn't have in the first. We try
to stay patient and calm and
usually it works out for us."

Warning: new credit card scam February outdoor care


There is another new
debit/credit card scam
out there but in this one
the caller does not ask for a
credit card number
because they
already have it, they
are looking for
something else.
Your credit identi-
ty is very important
and you need to pro-
tect it every way you
can. Today we have
lots of scams indi-
viduals need to be
aware of. The fol-
lowing article is MAR
from a scam, from MAD
California; you need
to be aware of scams
of this matter and be aware if
you receive a phone call of this
nature to hang up immediately
and call the Attorney Generals
Office to report the scam in
your area. For more informa-
tion on Credit Card Fraud call
the Sumter County Extension
Office at 352-793-2728.
It is getting very phreaky.
Miscreants incessantly phish-
ing and pharming on the
phone and over the internet,
looking for credit card num-
bers, personal identification.
numbers (PIN) and the three
to seven digit security num-
bers off of the backs of cards.
The ICFE became aware of
a new, clever, telephone
approach where the caller
asks a few questions, and tells
the targeted consumer they
are processing a credit of
almost $500 because one of
their credit cards may have
been improperly used. Wow, a
$500 credit will make. most
cardholders take notice and
initially listen to the unknown
caller.
In this scheme, the caller
has already acquired the vic-
tim's credit card numberss,
name, address, telephone
number, and etc. They are call-
ing because they need just one
more thing to begin spending
the remainder of an available
credit line, and that is the.
security PIN on the back of the
card, a seven digit number.
The last three are the PIN and


therefore .the most important
for a thief to possess.
This newly uncovered phish-
ing scenario plays out this way:
The individual call-
ing says, "This is
(gives a name), and
I'm calling from the
security and fraud
department at
VISA. My employee
ID badge number is
3736214."
Next comes an
ominous warning.
"Your VISA card
has been flagged for
THA an unusual pur-
ODOX chase pattern, and
SI'm calling to verify
some things. This
would be on your VISA card
which was issued .by (the name.
of your bank)." The victim
gradually lowers their guard
because the caller knows the
name of their credit .card
issuer. "Did you purchase an
anti-virus software program
with a personal firewall for
$497 from a sales and market-
ing company based in
Georgia?" the caller asks.
When the target consumer
responds "No," the caller will
continue with, "Then we will
be issuing a credit to your
account. This Georgia based
telephone boiler room outfit is
a company we have been
watching. The bogus charges'
range from $297 to $497, just
under the $500 purchase pat-
tern that flags most cards," the
caller authoritatively explains.
"Before your next statement,
the credit will be sent to (then
gives the card holder their
address), is that correct?"
The cardholder says "yes".-
The caller continues "I will
be starting an internal fraud
investigation. If you have any
questions, you should call the
1-800 number listed on the
back of your card (1-800-VISA)
and ask for the security
department You will need to
refer to this control number.".
The caller then gives the vic-
tim a six-digit number. "Do you
need me to you read it again?"
the caller politely inquires.
The main event, when the


consumer gets phished, is
next The caller then says, "I
need to verify you are in pos-
session of your card." He or
she will ask the cardholder to
"Turn the card over and look
for some numbers. There are
seven numbers; the first four-
are part of the card number,
the next three are the security
numbers' that verify you are
the possessor of the card,"'the
caller calmly explains. "These
are the numbers you may
sometimes use to make
Internet purchases to prove
you have the card in your pos-
session." Then the caller will
ask the victim to read the three
numbers back to them.
After the cardholder tells
the caller the three numbers,
the caller will say, "That is cor-
rect, I just needed to verify
that the card has not been lost
or stolen, and that you still
have your card in your posses-
sion. Do you have any ques-
tions?" After the cardholder
responds, the caller then
thanks them and states, "Don't
hesitate to call back if you do,"'
and disconnects.
The victim cardholder actu-
ally says very little, and is
never asked to tell the caller
their debit or credit card num-
ber. The cardholder usually
feels secure this was a legiti-
mate call and rarely calls back
Those intuitive cardholders
who do call the bona fide VISA
Security Department are told
the call was bogus and just
another scam. More upsetting
however, during that call the
cardholder is often told a new
purchase of $497 was recently
charged to their card.
If you are on, the receiving.
end of such a call, do not give
out ANY security numbers.
Make verifiable fraud report to
the issuer involved and imme-
diately close the accounts) in
question. VISA or MasterCard
will reissue a new number.
What the crooks really want is.
the three-digit Security PIN
number on the back of the
card. Don't give it to anyone
who calls you.
Instead, tell the callers) you
will call VISA or MasterCard


directly for verification of
their conversation. VISA and
MasterCard security depart-
ments tell the ICFE they would
never ask for anything on the
card, as they already know the
information because they
issued the card!
This writer recently
received a call from the securi-
ty department at my bank
about a number of transac-
tions made within a two-hour
span, which is unusual for me.
They asked me to about usage
to verify they were" legitimate,
but never asked.-me for any
sort of ID PIN numbers on the
backs of the card.
When the scammers on the
phone get a three Digit PIN
Number, the victim cardholder
may think they're going to be
receiving a credit. However, by
the time they get their state-
ment they'll see charges for
purchases they didn't make,
and by then it may be too late
and, perhaps, much more diffi-
cult to actually file a fraud
report and undo the bogus pur-
chases.
Should you receive a call
like this, hang up immedliate-
ly. Be aware and stay safe.

Lawns: February is too
early to safely fertilize a lawn.
Cold weather can do severe
damage to new growth that
fertilizer stimulates.
. Vegetables: Plant lettuce,
cabbage, spring onions,
radishes and similar cool-sea-
soned crops. It is a good idea
to treat the soil with granular
Diazinon to control cutworms
and other insects that might
damage your plants. Add 25 to
100 pounds of compost or cow
manure per 100square feet.
Avoid overfertilazation.
Never exceed 2 lb. of 6-6-6 or
8-8-8 per hundred square feet.
You can always add more fer-
tilizer if you need to, you can't
take back any excess.
Therefore, the best-case sce-
nario is waste of money; the
worst case is contamination of
groundwater.
Deciduous. Fruit Trees:. At
pedal fall or blossom drop,
apply a spray of Malathian
and Sevin. Repeat monthly
until harvest. This applies to
Apple, Peach, Nectarine, Pear
and Persimmon. Prune Apple,
Peaches, Nectarines, Pears,
and Persimmons this month.
Prune all broadleaved ever-
green shrubs and Roses for


size and shape. When new
growth signals the arrival of
spring, trim back freeze-dam-
aged summer and fall bloom-
ing shrubs. 'For Azaleas,
Camellias and Dogwood, wait
until after blooming. Prune
Muscadine and bunch Grapes
now. Also this is the month to
prune Crape Myrtle, Cut off
anything that is smaller tan a
pencil.
Citrus fertilize with V lb. of
Citrus Fertilizer per linch
trunk diameter now and in
April, August and October. A
Citrus special fertilizer is rec-
ommended, since it contains
extra minerals in the portions
most needed by these trees.,
Roses: Now is the time to
plant new bare-root rose
stock. Be sure the plants you.
get are grafted on rootstock
crafted for Florida condi-
tions. Fortuniana is best, Dr.
Huey is also good. Don't forget
to look for the "old" garden
roses that. are vigorous and
low maintenance.
Martin Grum is a Sumter
County Master Gardener, for
help with any garden or land-
scape advice call the Sumter
County Extension office at
352-793-2728.

Ceremony attendees LSCC Vice President of Educational Service Wes Estey (above, left to right)
District Board of Trustees Chairman Jackie Talley and Trustee Ray Gilley presented the Florida
African American Education Alliance's award for educational contributions to LSCC President
Charles Mojock and other Board members during their January 18th meeting.


LSCC recognized for student



outreach accomplishments


The Florida African
American Education
Alliance selected Lake-
Sumter Community College
as one of only four communi-
ty college' finalists recog-
nized for their support of the
Alliance's strategic plan to
continually to improve edu-
cational initiatives benefit-
ingAfrican Americans.
LSCC's Educational Talent
Search, Upward Bound and
College Reach-Out programs
have been tremendously suc-
cessful in identifying poten-
tial Wttidents: then providing
them the support and skills
needed to continue their
education onto a college ori


university level.
Keynote speaker Governor
Jeb Bush addressed over 800
guests during the Alliance's
January 16th Recognition
Ceremony at the Doubletree
Hotel, as part of Orlando's Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s
Annual Birthday
Celebration.
In addition to community
colleges, which included

Palm Beach and Florida
Community College at
Jacksonville, the Alliance
honored Florida teachers,
students, school administra-
tors, businesses, community
leaders and organizations


who have demonstrated a
commitment to education
and service throughout the
year.
A not-for-profit organiza-
tion, the Florida African

Alliance .was created in
response to the concern that
Florida's communities are'r
not fully aware of the bene-
fits of the education reforms
and are not taking full advan-
tage oF\\ hat is available with-
.in the education system.
Their goal is to raise this '
educational awareness and
promote opportunities in the
advancement of education
for all.

Pixie prefers a quiet homelife


Pixie is a little 3-year-old
that is cute as a button. She
has the biggest round eyes
that beg to be loved. Pixie
needs a quiet home with a
woman only she. is very
afraid of men. Pixie is loving
and affectionate, but must be
crated when not supervised. If.
you can give Pixie the special
home she needs, please e-
mail the Humane
Society/SPCA of Sumter
County at: humane@sum.net
or mail in your request to: PO.
Box 67, Lake Panasoffkee, Fl.
33538.
Just as our personalities are
shaped by our experiences, so
are the personalities of ani-
mals. We have no idea what
most of our foster animals
lives were like before they
were rescued, but we can only
imagine by their actions. We
assume that Pixie's fear and
mistrust of men must,be from
past inhumane treatment she
must have received from a
man.
If a dog is fearful of a person
or a situation, it, can take a
longtime and a lot of patience
and understanding to change
the fearful behavior.
Sometimes the best we can
hope for is just to know that at
least the dog will feel secure
with us.
Building a dogs confidence'
will help lessen the fearful
behavior Joining a basic obe-
dience class is an excellent.
way for your dog to gain confi-
dence, as well as socialize
with other dogs. You will both
.learn to better communicate
with each other while build-
ing a bond of trust and mutual
understanding. Once a dog
understands its place in its
"pack," he.or she will become
a happy and confident dog.
Some dogs may never com-
pletely get over their fears.
But if we can make them feel
secure and loved, they will
enjoy life.
The Humane Society/SPCA
believes the right home is out
there for ,every dog., Some
dogs need a quiet home, and
others need an active family.


Pixie is a little 3-year-old that is cute as a button.


We believe it is important not
only for the dog's well-being,
but to for the prospective
adopter to be happy with their
new family addition also.
If you are thinking of adding
a pet to your family, consider
adopting a shelter animal. We
have taken the time to learn
our foster animal's personali-


ties, and. understand their
unique needs. We will do our
best to find the right dog or eat
for you, so that you can look
forward to a .sharing your
home with the perfect com-
panion. Visit our website at
www.hsspca.org to see all of
our adorable little orphans
looking for homes.

OutM doors D AM


Bear was busy making the rounds through the concrete jungle


I have got to let you folks
know about a rather
humorous e-mail I just
received from the staff of the
FWC.
The e-mail was in
regards to a some-
what fearsome and
disturbed bear that
the FWC had been
having a lot of seri- -
ous problems and
complaints about
Well, as I under-
stand it, the FWC
captured the cul-
prit bear and cere-
monially named the JAMIE
marauding beast Outdool
"N15" when .they
adorned him with a
brand-new, high-tech, radio-
tracking collar.,
As I understand it, the "N"
in the bear's new "N15"
moniker stood for "nuisance,"
as he was considered to be
something of a nuisance, but
when you are aware of the
facts surrounding old N15's
disastrous junket into the


asphalt and concrete jungle of
Central Florida, the "N" prob-
ably should have stood for
nuts or naughty or some other
goofy Smokey-Bear-
type word starting
with the letter "N."
Anyhow, it seems
old N15 liked to
hang out around
cities and raid folks
S garbage canis dur-
ing the night, and
sometimes even in
broad daylight,
chase housecats up
trees, hide out in
ADAMS overgrown azalea
rWriter bushes and do
M whatever else it is
that troubled and
disturbed bears like to do to
entertain themselves.
Eventually his antics
reached the point to where he
was no longer considered cute
and cuddly and he started
alarming the folks he was
hanging out around. He was
eventually captured by the
FWC's expert bear wranglers


and carted off to the vast
Ocala National Forest where
there is far and away the
largest population of black
bear in the state, and maybe
even east of the Mississippi
River.
Well, judging from the well-
documented facts provided by
the radio collar, old N15 did
not take too well to being'
removed from the city life, so,
in less than a week, he showed
up in a sure-nuff huge cement
and asphalt jungle not too far
'from the Ocala Forest locally'
referred to as "The Villages"
in north Sumter County.
This gigantic, unincorporat-
ed, metropolis consists of
thousands and thousands of
acres of urban sprawl and
really did not have much to
offer in the way of wholesome
and nourishing food for old
N15 to forage on, except for a
few faded-out, one-legged,
pink plastic flamingos. and
scads and scads of triple-recy-
cled, nearly-slap-wore-out,
flat-sided golf balls.


So, old N15 carefully, and
mostly by the light of the
moon, traversed his way
around and through countless
miles of horrible and nearly
unnavigable mazes made up
of twisting and turning golf
cart trails, often swimming or
wading across manmade tad-
pole and gator-infested, slimy-
green-water lakes back to
Lake County.
There it was not nearly as
crowded, the garbage can food
was a little better, the plastic
flamingos came in all differ-
ent kinds of florescent colors,
and, for the most part, had at
least had two legs.
Well, good folks, the good or
bad news, depending on your
true feelings about bears, is
that ol' N15 has met his final
demise.
. I, for one, am tore up real
bad. It happened when he
showed back up at his old
stomping grounds.
Now, if I understand the
facts anywhere close to being
right, it seems like a couple of


old boys put old N15 com-
pletely out of his and every-
body else's misery.
I don't know for certain how
many shots or what kind of
gun it was, but from what the
initial reports indicate, it took
at least three shots smack dab.
in the middle of the go-fetch-it
to do him in right, once and
for all.
In Cracker language, old
N15's, traveling has come to a
blissful end, and, in most
cases back down the road just
a few years in time, it would
have been time for celebra-
tion in the community.
The old boy, or boys, who
shot old N15 had some serious
plans, as I understand it, for a
fine bearskin rug. With him
weighing in at somewhere
around 300 pounds, a pretty-
good-sized barbecue- could
have been held for-the neigh-
borhood he had been terroriz-
ing.
Well, as nearly always hap-
pens, some nosey enviro
neighbors found out about the


old boys' plans and "The Man"
was called, leading to the two
old boys who put old N15 out
of his misery being arrested.
Now, instead of the old boys
being local heroes for a day or.
two, they were all of a sudden,
pure out villains and, worse'
yet, they may have to go to;
court for doing the county and,
state a much-needed service.
I don't know what the
charges will be against the old
boys, but it for sure will not be'
for hunting bear out of season,
because, we all know, we ain't
got a bear-hunting season in
Florida.
I don't really think the old:
boys have a lot to worry about,.
because I can't believe the'
illustrious State Attorney;
from down our way, who inci-'
dentally has been all over the:
local, state and national news,
concerning his ongoing prob-
lems of failing to get convic-
tions on many of his major,
cases, will get too involved'
with this feat of heroism.

Traditional Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days are coming up, Feb. 4-5


Youth Waterfowl Hunting
Days are quickly approach-
ing. This event provides a spe-
cial time for experienced
waterfowl hunters to take
youths afield to teach them
the techniques and ethics of
duck hunting.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), in con-
junction with the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service, has
established Feb. 4 and 5, as
this year's Youth Waterfowl
Hunting Days to help pass on
the duck hunting tradition.


This statewide, two-day sea-
son allows children under 16
years old to hunt waterfowl,
coots and common moorhens.
Adult supervisors (18 years or
older) must be present and
can assist but. are prohibited
from hunting. Licenses, per-
mits and federal ducks
stamps are not required for
youth hunters under 16 years
of age.
The daily bag limit of ducks
is six. The six-duck limit may
consist of no more than one
black duck, one mottled duck,
one fulvous whistling-duck,


one pintail, one canvasback,
two redheads, two wood
ducks, two scaup, four scoters
and four mallards (of which
only two can be female).
Taking or attempting to take
harlequin ducks is illegal. All
other species of ducks may be
taken up to the six-bird limit.
In the Panhandle north and
west of the Suwannee River,
light geese may be taken.
Light geese include snow,
blue and Ross' geese. There is
a 15-bird, daily bag limit on'
any combination of these
geese.


In the Florida waters of
Lake Seminole, which is
south of SR 2, north of the Jim
Woodruff Dam and east of CR
271, Canada geese may be
taken. The daily bag limit on
Canada geese is five.
All other regulations for
hunting waterfowl apply to
these youth hunting days and
the regulations are at
MyFWC.com/hunting or in the
FWC's waterfowl and coot
seasons brochure, available
at county tax collectors'
offices.
Two Youth Waterfowl


Hunting Day events are
scheduled where young
hunters' will learn about
waterfowl and waterfowl
hunting from. experts,- and
will have the opportunity to
hunt with experienced men-
tors to put the skills they learn
into practice.
The South Brevard Chapter
of Ducks Unlimited will host a
Youth Waterfowl Duck Camp
at the Thomas M. Goodwin
Wildlife Management Area
(WMA) in Brevard County, on
Feb 3. Participants will camp
out the Friday evening before


the Youth Waterfowl'
Weekend. Dinner will be pro-
vided Friday evening, a light'
breakfast will be served on:
Saturday morning and lunch;
