Commissioners divided on funding issue


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Differences in county com-
missioner's economic philoso-
phies surfaced Tuesday
evening when they were pre-
sented with an opportunity to
request federal funding for
some local projects.
They considered submitting
a request for $3.3 million for a
storm shelter and about $2
million for a sports complex
and water retention project in
Webster.
Commissioner Dick


Hoffman said he disagrees
with Congress earmarking
federal funding for projects
around the country, and if
county residents want these
projects, they should be will-
ing to pay for them.
"We're asking for pork,"
Hoffman said. "We're asking
for taxpayers all around the
United States to give us their
money for projects we think
we need in our county."
As a result, only some of the
requests for funding county
projects will be submitted to
Congresswoman Ginny
Brown-Waite, who requested*

information from the commis-
sion about projects in need of
federal assistance.
Commissioners voted to ask
for $3.3 million for the storm
shelter, the total cost of which
is expected to be about $5 mil-
lion.

Commissioner, Jim Roberts

disagreed with Hoffman.
Roberts said if Sumter does-

Brown-Waite, it will just go to
another county.
"The rest of the counties in

if Sumter doesn't want the
money then they would be
glad to take it."
Commissioners- axed the
part of the request pertaining
to the $2 million for a sports

They voted 3-to-2 in favor of
removing the sports complex
from the request, with
Roberts and Chandler dis-

Director leaves backroads and buses behind


Photo by Brenda Locklear
Dean Smith (right) retired as Sumter County School District Transportation Director earlier this
year. He is shown with Sumter Superintendent of Schools Rick Shirley at a luncheon that was
held in his honor. District officeq employees brought in home-cooked goodies and decorated the
gathering room with school busses and county roads, as well as a picture of Smith behind the
wheel of a county school bus.


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

You hear people say they
know an area like the back of
their hand. but it's very possi-
ble that nobody kaiows Sumter
County quite like Dean Smith.
That's because it. was back in
February 1972 that he really
began to get a firsthand
knowledge of local roads and
county buses. That's when he
began driving for the county's
school system.
And it's been something
he's done ever since.
Though he spent a lot less
time behind the wheel in
recent years, he still had to be
keen on what roads led where
and who lived there. That's
because the county school bus
driver moved on to become
the district's transportation
chief
Earlier this year, after more
than 30 years with the district,
Smith retired:
"Back then it was a lot dif-
ferent," he said.
Older buses and mechani-
cal problems were a key con-
cern in the earlier years.


"Not that we.don't have a lot
now, but back then that was
one of your bigger things," he
said, "keeping them on the
road, keeping them running."
The fleet's been updated
since he started those years
ago.
But even with the problems;-
it was never a safety issue,
only mechanical, he said.
When he started there were
only 49 routes in the county
and now there are at least 73.
He became transportation
chief for the county in 1978.
"I'm a native of Sumter
County, born and raised in
Sumter County."
- He was a barber for several
years and started as a substi-
tute bus driver, but went into a
route shortly after that.
He's a real family man,
according to his supervisors.
As for the job itself, there
was dealing with mechanical
issues, knowing paved and
unpaved roads, knowing
where the kids lived and
changing bus stop locations to
meet the changing needs.


sports complex, storm water
retention, and a fire station.
In other business, the com-
mission passed ordinances
. designed to ease the financial
burdens of "hardship cases,"
when a resident sets up a tem-
porary structure to care for ill
or elderly family members.
The ordinances waive

that the property owner would

the collision. Another passen-
ger, Jodi .Schleman, 12, of
Oxford, was taken to Orlando

Guillermo Mendoza, 21, was
arrested on two counts of DUI
manslaughter and driving
without a valid license.
Mendoza is listed as a

Program set


for curbing

rabies

BOB REICHMAN
Editor

.Sumter County will be par-
t icipating in a state-organized
Oral Rabies Vaccine Program
later this month aimed at
curbing rabies incidents in
the county by orally vaccinat-
ing raccoons against the fatal
disease.
The program involves dis-
tributing rabies vaccine bait
packets through a variety of
ways through rural areas in
the county. The baiting will
begin Feb. 13 and will last for
14 to 21 days, depending on
weather conditions, accord-
ing to Keith Hunter, manager
of Sumter County
Environmental Health
Department.

And while Smith notes the
big change in the buses them-
selves, he said the biggest
change he's dealt with
through the years is the dif-
ference in parents and chil-
dren.
He said when there's a
problem today, they (the dis-
trict) have to prove that kids
have. done something wrong
before parents will take
action and he believes it's
important that residents
know that.
Smith's job included every-
thing from knowing miles
around the county and rout-
ing buses to dealing with par-
ent conferences.
Learning the job was some-
thing that happened over the
years.
"It was a gradual thing that
came to you," he said, point-
ing out that he got used to
going along with the flow of
learning with the changes
and additions.
"I grew up with the sys-
tem," he said, which made it
less challenging than it could
be coming in, with every-
thing in place.
As for what he misses since
retiring, he said, "I miss the
people."
While he plans to do some
traveling, he's really just con-
tent to do what he wants
when he wants right now.
"I'm sure that'll change
later on, but right now it just
seems good not to have to get
up and rush to go to work."
Work meant dealing with a
barrage of constant phone
calls everyday, from 5 a.m. to
10 a.m. working to have
enough subs and solving
other problems.
And that's what crossed his
mind, "Ohhhh who needs a
sub?"
"If you really averaged it
out," you probably needed an
average of four to five subs
everyday, he said.
Sometimes (on rare occa-
sions) it was 15, sometimes it
was none. The need depends
on the day and what type of

eliminate the rehearing or
reconsideration procedure
from Sumter County Code.
The issue was brought to light
at a recent rehearing for the
Rinker mine in Center Hill.
"It was felt that (the rehear-
ing) was not done properly,"
said County Attorney Randall
Thornton.
He said the codes were
intended to apply to a "very
limited situation" when coun-
ty staff made recommenda-
tions for approval and the
commission denied the
request.
"You always have the inher-
ent power to rehear some-
thing. You don't need it in the
code," he said.


events were taking place -
whether or not there were
athletic or field trips.
There were some days
when, "We would all be driv-
ing mechanics, myself, sec-
retary and some of the coach-
es," he said.
But that was rare.
"He will be sorely missed
by the district," said assistant
school superintendent
Hanna Foster, adding that he
went above and beyond the
call of duty to complete his
job.
He was low key, but always
just got the job done; she'
said. -
Citing'the challenge of the
job, Sumter School Supt.
Rick Shirley. said the job
could like "Like herding cats,
sometimes."
Smith never lost sight of
children's safety, according
to Shirley and Foster. That
was his priority.
As a matter of fact, the first
question he always asked
when considering the routes,
was whether or not it was
going to be safe for kids, they
said.
It was constantly a matter
of evening routes out,
decreasing one as another
increased. He also always
tried to make sure the routes
were set at the end of the
year, insuring that they could
start a new year fairly even.
He is married to Vivian
and has a daughter Donia, a
son, David and two: grand-
daughters.
Mrs. Smith was also a long-
time employee of the school
district. She worked at North
Sumter Primary and North
Sumter Intermediate School.
He said they'll probably
spend more time in Texas
where his grandchildren are,
working with the kids in
school.
Last week, county office
employees brought in home-
cooked goodies and hosted a
luncheon for Smith and his
family, complete with paper
school busses, county roads
and a picture of Smith. They
also had him driven in by
limousine. School district
employee Rodney Rocker
owns his own liinousinie sertv-
ice and brought Smith and
his family to lunch, as a
crowd of eniployees lined.the
driveway pnd applauded his
arrival ; .

RABIES

continued from Page 1

Rabies is a deadly viral dis-
ease that can be prevented
but not cured. The virus
attacks the brain of warm-
blooded animals, including
people.
When an animal is sick
with rabies, the virus is shed
in the saliva and can be
passed to another animal or
a person, usually through a
bite.
Transmission may also
occur if this sali-
va or the animal's
nervous tissue The pro
enters open being
wounds, the by tht
mouth, nose or Depart
eyes of another -e C
animal or person. Owi
The bait distri- Seric
bution will help SerDic
to establish a 150- the Div
mile-long and 40- Wil
mile-wide barri- Serv
er across the
state roughly
along the 14 cor-
ridor.
In Sumter County, baiting
is expected to include areas
similar to those covered last
year; that included a 231-
square-mile swath of south-
ern Sumter County from just
.south of Nobleton northeast
to a few miles south of
Sumterville. The entire
county south of State Road 50
is also included.
Hand. placement of the
baits will be done in Center
Hill, Croom-a-Coochee,
Webster, and Bushnell.
"The rabies virus is
endemic in Sumter County,"
Hunter said. "Although we
don't have a high incidence
of rabies, it's in the wildlife
population."
Rabies is 100 percent fatal,
Hunter said. "The only per-
son who survived the disease
is a lady in Wisconsin who
participated in an experi-
mental treatment.
It's a scary disease."
The program is being pro-
vided by the state
Department of Agriculture
Consumer Services and the
Division of Wildlife Services.
Locally,' between six and
eight county employees are
expected to help distribute


bait packets, Hunter said.
The baits will also be dis-
tributed by fixed wing air-
craft, ground hand-place-
ment, and at bait stations
(where there is a high densi-
ty of raccoons).
Ground hand-placement
will be done by the staff of
the Sumter County Health
Department and Sumter
County Public Works (Animal
Control and Mosquito
Control) during the week of
Feb. 13.
Residents are advised that
in rural areas, baits will be
distributed by low flying air-
craft at an alti-
tude of 500 to 700
feet, operating
gram is from dawn to
provided dusk.
State Residents
ment of should not be
ldture alarmed and
umer should contact
es and either of the
vision of numbers below
.life with any ques-
ces. tions or con-
t* cerns.
Here's some
information
about the bait program:
Bait packets are slightly
more than an inch in size,
brown and square in shape.
The vaccine packet is inside
a hard fishmeal polymer
shell.
Instruct children to leave
the baits alone.
Keep dogs and cats inside
or on leashes at least a week
after your area is baited. It is
important that raccoons have
every opportunity to eat the
baits.
Do not attempt to take bait
away from your pet; you may
be bitten. The bait is not
harmful to pets.
If baits are found in areas
frequented by pets or chil-
dren, toss them into deeper
cover.
Damaged baits can be dis-
posed of in trash. It is recom-
mended that anyone han-
dling bait wear gloves.
If a person is exposed to
the actual vaccine (red liq-
uid), simply wash with soap
and water any areas of the
skin that came into contact
with the vaccine.

Department at 352-793-7133

PETA urges investigation of cougar's death


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

PETA (People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals)
is requesting an investigation
into the death of a cougar that
bit a worker after escaping
from its cage at Savage
Kingdom in Center Hill on
Jan. 10. Furthermore, the
group is calling for state offi-
cials to revoke the licenses of
the exotic animal breeding
facility following the episode
in which the cougar was cap-
tured but died after a struggle.
However, Savage Kingdom
owner Robert Baudy said
what happened was an acci-
dent, and after an investiga-
tion, the incident was deter-
mined a result of keeper error,
according to a Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation


Commission (FWCC) report.
"We breed cats. We save
cats. We don't try to kill them,"
Baudy said.
After the cat escaped, a rope
was placed around its neck in
an attempt to return it to its
cage and the cougar was ulti-
mately strangled, according to
a letter from PETA Captive
Exotic Animal Specialist Lisa
Wathne to Elizabeth
Goldentyer, regional director
of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture animal care divi-
sion.
"This incident clearly
endangered people and the
animal and appears to have
violated the minimum stan-
dards of the Animal Welfare
Act..." the letter states.
PETA is against keeping
exotic animals in captivity,
according to Wathne.
The victim is a keeper who


has been employed by Savage
Kingdom on and off for 25
years. She received two punc-
ture wounds in her lower left
leg and refused medical treat-
ment after the incident,
according to the report.
She has continued to work
at Savage Kingdom, Baudy
said.
In Wathne's letter, the alle-
gations and information were
attributed to a whistleblower
who contacted PETA.
The letter also made men-
tion of other incidents at the
facility in past years when two
workers were mauled in sepa-
rate incidents. One of them
was killed, according to
Wathne.
"Because of Savage
Kingdom's long history of big-
cat escapes and attacks...
PETA is asking the USDA and
the FFWCC to revoke the


menagerie's licenses."
The letter was dated Jan.26,
and Wathne said last week it
could be months before the
USDA responds.
There is no alternative to
shutting the facility down,
according to Wathne.
She said the cat's cage
should not have allowed it to
escape, and when it did
escape, it should have been
tranquilized.
According to the FWCC, the
keeper error in this case was
her failure to properly secure
the animal's cage, resulting in
the escape and bite.
"A suitable lock down was
available, thus the facility met
the captive wildlife require-
ment for providing a safety
entrance," according to the
report.
The keeper "should have
realized that the divider door


was not properly secured," the
report concludes.
The report also mentions
that at the time of the escape,
the cougars were "nervous
and agitated" by tree trim-
ming activities on the proper-
ty.
Baudy said he was 15 miles
away from the facility when
the cat got loose and by the
time he arrived, it was too
late.
"If I would have been there,
I would have tranquilized the
animal," he said.
Baudy said he's been there
for 60 years and bred thou-
sands of cats.
"If you deal with dangerous
animals, you're bound to have
some accidents. If you deal in
butterflies, that's a different
thing," he said.
Wathne said one of the rea-
sons wild animals shouldn't be


kept in captivity is because of
the safety risks it entails, but
Baudy said his facility is there
to breed cats, not harm them.
Baudy, 83, said the governor
of Florida asked him to help
restore the Florida panther
population in the 1970s and
*about 75 of them were pro-
duced at the facility.
The Feline Conservation
Federation lists Baudy's suc-
cesses as a breeder on its Web
site.
Snow leopards had only
been successfully born in cap-
tivity seven times in world
zoos, but they were produced
at Baudy's facility in 1971,
according to the site.
"This compound also pro-
duced a litter of cheetah and
the second ever breeding of
black jaguars," as well as
Amurian leopards, and
Siberian and Bengal tigers.

Bushnell celebrates Arbor



Day with tree planting

The City of Bushnell did its
part as a Tree City USA to cel-
ebrate Arbor Day by planting
one of its own trees at the
Kenny Dixon Sports Complex
on Friday.
A small crowd gathered at a
site that was once shaded by a
40-foot water oak, which fell
as a result of high winds and
rain during the 2004 hurri-
cane season.
In its place, they planted a
13-foot live oak.

Have you been dreaming
that you'd win big in the
Florida Lotto?
Would striking the Fantasy
5 make things financially
right for you.? Then the num-
bers 9-11-13-15-26 could rock
your world especially if you
purchased a ticket at the
Bushnell Hess store on Sept.
21.
If it hasn't been thrown
away or lost, then somebody
out there is holding a $53,729
ticket.
Check your tickets, check
with your friends, neighbors
and relatives who've come
down to Florida to visit you
recently.
Know anybody who's come
in from across the state?
Maybe they'll share a finder's
fee with you.
But check quick, because
the winner has a little less
than a month and a half to
claim their prize.
The deadline is midnight,
March 20. Winners are given
180 days to claim their prizes.
If the money is not claimed,

it will be split up, according to
Leslie Steele of Florida Lotto.
Eighty percent of the
money will be put into the
educational enhancement
trust fund and 20 percent will
go back into the pool for
future games and promo-
tions.
While it's rare that the larg-
er pools, such as Lotto and
Fantasy 5, remain unclaimed,
even the unclaimed $1 prizes
are divided into the 80/20
ratio, she said.
Typically, the Florida Lotto
is very aggressive in putting
the word out when the winner
has a Fantasy 5 Mega Money
prize to claim.
With larger prizes, the win-
ner may take their time, get-
ting .a lawyer on board and
financial issues in order,
before claiming their money,
but typically, that's for prizes
above $200,000.
But Steele said, "You never
can tell, it sometimes
depends on their circum-
stances."
When asked if there have
been other big winners at the
local Hess store, Steele
laughed and said, "Everyone
is a big winner to us."

Panasoffkee project gets funding


The Sumter County
Extension Service Office will
receive a $5,000 grant from
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District's 2006
Community Education Grant
Program.
The Sumter County
Extension Service Office was
awarded the funds for the
Lake Panasoffkee
Preservation Celebration,
which will provide more than
500 residents with the oppor-
tunity to learn more about the
history, restoration and future
preservation of Lake


Panasoffkee. This one-day
event will include a "Lake
PanPal" pledge program and
educational activities for
adults and children.
The project is funded by the
District's Withlacoochee
River Basin Board. The
Withlacoochee River Basin
includes portions of Citrus,
Hernando, Levy, Marion,
Pasco and Sumter counties.
This year the District
awarded 34 grants dis-.
trictwide for a total of
$151,278. The grants, which
are up to $5,000 each, help


fund projects that provide
communities the opportunity
to learn about water
resources.
The overall goal of the
Community Education Grant
Program is to actively engage
adults in water-related issues
pertaining to conservation,
protection and preservation.
Funded by the District's Basin
Boards, the program is
intended to motivate commu-
nities to get involved in water
protection through various
activities and educational for-
mats.

Prison program with


lots of benefits


BEYOND SUMTER


We've watched this program
for a few years now and if
you can see positive
results coming from a prison sys-
tem, this is definitely one of them.
On a reoccurring basis, several
inmates of the minimum-security
camp for female offenders at the
Coleman Federal Prison are
hooked up with young puppies in
a relationship that helps the
inmate, the dog and a needy com-
munity-member.
The program is called IMPACT
(Inmates Practicing Animal Care
and Training) and it matches an
inmate with a puppy. It is a part-
nership with the Southeastern
Guide Dogs Inc. and Coleman
Federal Correctional Institution.
The inmate becomes the care-
giver and trainer for the puppy.
The training is very specialized
because the dogs aren't just taught
obedience lessons; they're
groomed to become seeing-e.-e
dogs.
Inmates help to teach dogs the
commands they'll use in their
careers as guide dogs for the
blind, like how to find their own-
ers seats, maneuver through
doors, and to lie on the floor in dis-
tracting situations.


Making up
school time
The State Board of Education has
waived the requirement for students
to make up the day of school that was
missed due to Hurricane Wilma, how-
ever it will be required to make up the
day missed on Dec. 2, due to the State
Championship football game,
At South Sumter High School the
day will be made-up by extending the
school day for 30 minutes from Feb. 6
through 24. Students will return to
their test prep classes at 3:20 p.m.,
each afternoon and will utilize the
extra time by preparing for tests.
Ninth and 10th grade students will be
preparing for the FCAT test. School
will be dismissed for the day at 3:50
p.m.
Thank you for your support,
Preston Morgan,
Principal South Sumter High
School

Sick and
tired
I am sick and tired of the way things
are handled concerning our chil-
dren's buses and bus drivers. I think
that some bus drivers go a little too far
with their power.


It's obvious that the program is
beneficial to the recipients of
these dogs but it also provides a
great deal of benefit for the
inmates who raise them.
You can, see the connection
they've made with the puppy
they've raised the love and pride
when they speak about the dog
they've cared for and trained. And
it's moving to see their emotion, as
they have to let the animal go,
moving on to its new owner
For the inmates, it's a chance to
do something positive as they pre-
parb to step back into society -
typically; the inmates selected for
the program are nearing the end
of their incarceration.
For some of the inmate han-
dlers, the adventure spurs them to
consider seeking jobs as dog han-
dlers. In that case, the company
can provide inmate dog handlers
with letters of recommendation
and assistance with job place-
ment.
For the recipient, it means a. dif-
ferent world freedom to. go
places and do things, a 24-hour-a-
day companion, trained specially
for their needs.
It's a win-win situation for just
about everyone involved.

irbage Last time I checked, the above
;e constitutes a viable paragraph,
vice with an answer and the readers'
t, and solution. Basically, rather simple!
ne An e-mail received this past
works week:
"Dear Dan,
"I always enjoy your articles. We


H


haven't had a bit of problem with
Part D.
"I did a lot of homework and
brain burning, but it worked out for
my 84-year-old mom.
"Much too serious to
sign up for the first junk
mail that showed up."
I am pleased with pre-
senting this particular e-
mail. This reader either
had common sense or
followed my advice, or
perhaps both, and took
his time and everything
worked out fine.
Working with a govern-
,N ment "renovation" pro-
IAN gram is most difficult.
However, despite the
government's and the
private insurers' indication of a
rush to enroll, there was no neces-
sity to do so, and, quite frankly, you
still have 100-plus days to make an
educated decision, as the reader
indicated within the e-mail.
Another reader's e-mail received
the same day asks about a
Medicare supplement plan.
"Hi Dan, Hate to put another bur-
den of questions on you, but we are
at our wits' end, not only about plan
D, but also about our Medicare sup-

ance.
"We don't qualify for Medicare or
Medicaid extra help, but cannot
afford our current Medicare sup-
plement at $356 monthly with a 15
percent prescription coverage."
This e-mail continued with a
request for other types of Medicare
policies that are not available to
the reader based on the county
where the reader resides.
This is the type of mail that keeps
up all night, literally. And the read-
er is correct: With $31,000 in count-
able assets, the reader and spouse
live on $1,400 per month. The gov-
ernment encourages all Americans
to save, and when they do they
are penalized for doing so.
People have put aside a lifetime
of savings doing what was best -
the salt of the earth and were
urged to do so by a government of
"elected protectors," who could
never live on $700 per month or leg-
islate their own pensions, to assure
that they never end up in this situa-
tion.
Three different readers show dif-
ferent paths of life and philoso-
phies; one wants life simplified
and does nothing, one legitimately
can take advice and work a plan,
and yet another can't do either.

On Thursday, Jan. 29, Cindy

ting celebration at its new
location on Highway 44E in
Wildwood.
SWildwood Mayor Ed Wolf,
longtime faithful customer
Ben Corbin, GM Rep. Scott
Malatesta and GM Regional
Manager Doug Stephens were
among those that spoke to the
crowd of their appreciation
and dedication to Cindy Clark,
the driving force behind
Cindy Chevrolet.
Each one that spoke echoed
the same sentiments that

A multi-year aerial map-
ping project funded by the
Southwest Florida
Management District and
Sumter County will help pre-,
dict flooding and water qual-
ity problems by updating the
county's topographical maps.
During the first phase of
the project, the entire county
will be flown over with light
detection and ranging laser-
based technology (LiDAR) to
collect topographic informa-
tion, which will be used to
create detailed 'elevation
maps that show the area's
physical features.
From these maps, flood-
plain boundaries and water-
sheds may be determined to
help predict future flooding
and water quality problems.
The elevation data collect-
ed from the project will be
used to update the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) Flood


Insurance Rate Maps
(FIRM). Governments, insur-
ance companies and individ-
uals all use FIRMs to identi-
fy flooding risk and to plan
for potential flooding.
In addition, the informa-
tion will be used to support
cooperative projects
between the District and the
county, including future
watershed management pro-
grams, the design and imple-
mentation of any large-scale
drainage improvement proj-
ects, emergency prepared-
ness planning, and more
accurate and efficient map-
ping of wetlands.
Funding for the first phase
of this project will be divided
among the District, the
District's Withlacoochee
River Basin Board and
Sumter County. In fiscal year
2006, the District is contribut-
ing $83,218 and. the basin
board is contributing


$378,869. Additional funding
for future fiscal years is con-
tingent upon board approval.
Sumter County is contribut-
ing $151,650.
The county has submitted
this project for Rural
Economic Development
Initiative (REDI) considera-
tion. REDI funds are avail-
able to communities with
demonstrated economic dis-
advantages.
This project is being coor-
dinated with two other proj-
ects, the Citrus County
Watershed Management Plan
Topographic. Mapping and
with minimum flows and lev-
els mapping efforts.
The coordination of these
three projects has allowed
the District to negotiate bet-
ter prices and to increase the
consistency of topographic
data in the Withlacoochee
River watershed.

Sumter County for their sup-
port.
"It's.a start of a new chapter
for us and for Wildwood. I
thank each and every. one
you," she said.
The new facility is state-of-
the-art and will provide better
and faster service to new and
existing customers as well as
the space needed to provide a
wider selection of vehicles on
site, she said.
At one time, Clark
expressed an interest in psy-
chology but working after high
school and summers at her
father's dealership. in
Leesburg, she gradually
learned the ropes and found
her real calling a dealership
of her own.
Her father even supplied


her with all the reasons she
might not want to venture into
,owning a dealership: She
shouldn't like the hours
involved and the demands.
But, Cindy found a balance
that works for her. .
"I still love every minute of
it. It's not a job to me."
She doesn't take all the
credit for the success of the
dealership. It's a joint team
effort with everyone that
works with her. Cindy shares
her office, decorated by her
new husband Daniel Devries,
with her long-time friend and
companion Jesse a 12-V2 year-
old red Golden Retriever.
"It's a new chapter for:us to
make sure it runs smoothly
and we give the very best that
we can to all of our cus-
tomers."
Last week, Cindy Chevrolet
held a customer appreciation
day providing musical enter-
tainment, hot dogs and drinks
for all her customers.

Lake-Sumter Metropolitan
Planning Organization (MPO)
Board.
He has served on the MPO
Board since its inception in

mally established a system of

organization."

Chamber of Commerce


assists with college plan


The long-term success of a
business community is tied to
a better-educated workforce.
While high school diplomas
are a great start, many of
today's businesses are looking
for college graduates to fill
entry-level positions. And for
many parents in Sumter
County, the question isn't
whether they want .to send
their children to college, but if
they can save enough money
to get them there. The Florida
Prepaid College Board offers
two great options for college
savings: the Florida Prepaid
College Plan and the Florida
College Investment Plan.
To help inform residents on
ways to save for future college
expenses, the Florida
Prepaid. College Board has
joined forces with the Sumter
County Chamber of
Commerce. As part of the
alliance, the Chamber of
Commerce will distribute
information regarding both
college savings plans.
The Florida Prepaid
College Plan began in 1987
and has sold close to 1.1 mil-
lion contracts since its incep-
tion.
Our data shows that, on
average, one out of every 10
children in Florida have a
Florida Prepaid College
account. However, there are
still many families with chil-


dren in Sumter County who
have not taken advantage of
the benefits the program
offers.
With the Florida Prepaid
College Plan, families can
lock in the cost of college
tuition, local fees and dormi-
tory housing for a child at
today's prices.
When the child is ready for
college, the plan covers the
actual cost at any Florida pub-
lic college; or the value of the
plan can be transferred to
most private colleges in
Florida, select technical
schools and most out-of-state
colleges. .
Investing in a college sav-
ings plan is a big financial
'commitment, but it is well
worth it.
With a Prepaid College
Plan, the rates are locked in
today and prices never
increase. A family's invest-
ment is guaranteed and will
be there when it is time for,
the child to go to college.
Additionally, the savings for
a family can be dramatic in
many cases.
The open enrollment peri-
od for the Prepaid College
Plan ends on Tuesday,
January 31, 2006.
For enrollment information
on either plan, call 1-800-552-
GRAD (4723) or visit
www.florida529plans.com.

Critter CHAPTER IS I


students have a 'blast' She'd make an excellent companion


AMANIV DA IVMS
Staff Writer


Dozens of children were
attacked by aliens and bom-
barded with asteroids and
comets on a voyage into outer
space Friday, but they all
made it back to earth safely,
back to Webster Elementary
School where Lynn Thomas
teaches about the solar sys-
tem in an unusual way.
Every year, a classroom's
walls transform into a black
sky dotted with a myriad of
stars. The planets, illuminat-
ed by a black light, dangle in
Earth's solar system. In the
center of the room is a neon.
green spaceship, where four
children at a time take part in
the adventure. Throughout
the ride, a child's voice nar-
rates and tells the students
about each planet around the
room. At different times, the
spacecraft spins around and
rocks (with the help of a stu-
dent volunteer).
It may not be the real thing
and it may not feel like exact-
ly like a theme park ride, but
Thomas' first grade students
did n't seem to care.
"AL first when I was getting
in, I was so scared," said first
grader MacKenzie McNeal.
But she said the ride was
fun, especially when "they
(students dressed as aliens)
threw (rubber) eyeballs" at
the ship.
The aliens were also a
favorite of first .grader
* Alejandro Cedillo.
. Thomas said she's been
doing this for about 10 years to
teach about "what's in the
night sky."
'The spaceship is actually
made of plywood and gets its
mobility from a lazy Susan
underneath. Inside are its
S"controls," a keyboard and
joystick
Thomas said she received a
, grant for $500 to buy the mate-
rials back when she started,
and used about $1,000 of her
own money keeping it up
since then. :'
She keeps- doing it every
year because"the students
enjoy it.
S"'The first time they go in
they don't know what. tg
think," Thomas. said. "I've had

The Sippey family adopted

Little Honey Bun was a lit-

Her broken jaw and cracked

terrible life she once had.

faux leopard skin bed posing
as the spoiled little girl that
she has become.
Her mom and dad adore
her, and we couldn't be
happier.


Special needs dogs, such as
Millie, Dante, Josh, and China
who were diagnosed as heart-
worm positive, all found very
special homes.
Their new families opened
their hearts to take on the
responsibility of caring for
their new pets special needs.

Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County volunteers, Daniel Hickey, Linda Graves, Lucille Fusco, Ronnie Graves, and Diane
Hartman have received their certification from the Humane Society of the United States for completing the Disaster Animal
Response Team (DART) course. Three days of intensive training was hosted at the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County's
office in Lake Panasoffkee, where 30 people from throughout the state attended. Local DART members Lucille Fusco and Diane
Hartman are residents of The Villages, and Daniel Hickey, Ronnie Graves, and Linda Graves are Webster residents. Certification is
recognized as Florida State trained volunteers that can respond to disasters. Both Ronnie and Linda Graves, previously certified
5 years ago, attended because, "Much has been learned over the past few years, and we felt strongly in becoming re-certified."
DART volunteers have assisted over the years in such disasters as the 1998 Florida fires, 2004 Hurricanes Charlie and Frances,
and 2005 Hurricane Katrina. Their focus is on animal rescue and helping people with animals in disasters.

of these bi-annual meetings.
and I ,well remember they
sure helped me big time with
the difficult job I had to do
enforcing the laws of the
state in a professional


manner.
Since I have retired I still
try and attend these meetings
and hang out with many of
my old buddies
* every chance I get.
S At the same time, I
get the opportunity
to meet' the new
sheriffs that have
f- ,. been elected since
my retirement.
SWell, just this past
week the sheriffs'
winter meeting was
up in Panama City
and me and Shug
ADAMS went up for the
Writer meeting.
-M-M'-- I am glad we went
as Shug got the
opportunity to see a lot of the
sheriffs' wives she had met
over the years and I got the
chance to visit with a lot of
the sheriffs who I had served
with and are still serving
their folks. To- boot, there,
were also a lot of retired
sheriffs at the gathering that I
had had the pleasure of serv-
ing with.
At these meetings, there
are all kinds of classes the
sheriffs attend that are con-
ducted by skilled instructors
who bring the sheriffs up to
date on the many changes


that are taking place daily in
the field of law enforcement;
most especially in these
times when our national
security is so important.
The field of law enforce-
ment is becoming more and
more high tech and it is real-
ly important that our elected
sheriffs and any leader in law
enforcement be up to date on
the new tools that .are avail-
able for law enforcement. It
is at these sheriffs' meetings
that the newest equipment
relating to law enforcement
technology is displayed and
demonstrated to the sheriffs
as well )as their chief
deputies or other staff mem-
bers.
Anyway, at the sheriffs con-
ferences all is. not work and
there is some time for the
sheriffs and their wives to
relax. Some of the sheriffs
play a round of golf while
some others might take in a
half-day of fishing.
At the Panama City confer-


ence an old tradition was
renewed and that was a
friendly skeet-shooting con-
test.
!Years ago at the confer-
ences, along with golf and
fishing a skeet shooting con-
test was held among a few
sheriffs especially those who
were. into hunting big time.
This was the fun-time func-
tion I always took part in.
Quite frankly, I ain't too much
into the fine art of knocking a
little white or a bright orange
colored ball in and out of the
woods and into the surround-
ing ponds while desperately
trying to get the golf ball
down a hole not much bigger
than a half dollar.
On the other hand, I can do
fairly well sometimes shoot-
ing those little fleeting clay
birds with a good well-bal-
anced 12-gauge shotgun. At
the sheriffs' skeet shoot, I
had myself a good time.
I reckon that there were
about 15 or so sheriffs taking


part in the skeet shoot along
with me and a couple of other
retired sheriffs. A couple of
the still active sheriffs taking
part in the skeet shooting
contest were Johnny Mack
McDaniel of Jackson County
and 79-year-old, Sheriff
Harrell Revell of Liberty
County -a long time good
friend of mine who is still
serving.
Sheriff McDaniel and I
spent a little time together up
at the FBI National Academy
in Quantico, Va., back in the
eighties and have always
been close friends. Sheriff
Revell is an ex-paratrooper
having served in the 82nd
Airborne Division like myself
and our boys were raised up
attending sheriffs' confer-


ences over the years. I might
add that Sheriff Harrell fish-
es a lot at my most favorite
spot, Lake Panasoffkee, for
shell crackers each spring
and he and I have a fishing
trip scheduled on the full
moon in either March or
April of this year.
To say the least, Shug and I
had a great time up at
Panama City and we cannot
say thanks enough for our
own Sumter County Sheriff
Bill Farmer and his lovely
wife Linda for making sure
we both had a great time. I
hope I can always get to
attend the sheriffs' confer-
ence as they sure bring back
a lot of wonderful memories
and I get the chance to renew
a lot of special friendships.

More than $2,700 has been
raised by a group of Cypress
Ridge Elementary School stu-
dents' to help build a new
facility for Hospice of Lake
and Sumter, in South Lake.
County.
In return, Hospice
Foundation Board Member
Richard Lindgren and
Foundation Executive
Director Ted Williams pre-
sented a special "Caring and
Sharing 2005" award to the
students and Cypress Ridge
Principal Carmen Arnold.
The money will help pay for
construction of the Mike


Conley Hospice House, a resi-
dence for patients who are no
longer able to live in their own
homes, Hospice officials said.
The youngsters raised the
money by doing chores at
home and bringing their earn-
ings to school in envelopes
with their names, explained
Cypress Ridge teacher Mary
Battersby. She said she then
drew five names a day during
the five-day fund-raising
drive. Each of the five stu-
dents won a miniature
Hospice bear. On the fifth day,
two final envelopes were


drawn, and those winners
each received a large Hospice
plush bear as a grand prize.
According to Battersby, the
fund-raiser's success was due
to the great participation of
the students and the support
of their parents. A parent vol-
unteer's daily accounting of
the children's donations
helped make the drive go
smoothly, too, the teacher
added.
The Mike Conley Hospice
House will be a 10-bedroom
residence located near South
Lake Hospital, Hospice offi-


cials said. It 'vill be named in
memory of Mike Conley, a
longtime Clermont resident
and community supporter.
The new facility is planned to
open in 2006, they said.
Hospice of Lake and
Sumter. is a not-for-profit,
community healthcare organi-
zation.
It provides medical, nurs-
ing, emotional, spiritual, and
personal care .services for
patients with serious, com-
plex illnesses, and their fami- -

applied for the "Innovative
"Readine Pilot Program" com-
petitive grant last fall, which
-,was supported and approved
by the school board members.
Sumrter County was one ofthe

instructional reading pro-
grams for students in grades
kindergarten through three.
The schools include:
