County discusses Village traffic


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Potential safety risks from
golf carts crossing a busy two-
lane road in The Villages
dominated discussion at,
Tuesday's County Commission
meeting, the second meeting
held in The Villages at Laurel
Manor Recreation Center
Commissioners addressed
residents' concerns about
road safety in the' area by
ordering a traffic study on


County Road 472 after review-
ing a request to create a golf
cart path crossing on the road
in addition to lowering the
speed limit from 45 miles per
hour to 35 miles per hour.
About a dozen residents
sent letters to District 1
Commissioner Dick Hoffman
regarding the problem recent-
ly, and the issue prompted
several more to ask the com-
mission for a resolution on
Tuesday.
Residents said they are wor-
ried about the possibility of


accidents as a result of golf
carts attempting to cross the
road.
Vice Chairman Jim Roberts
said he believes the issue to
be a safety hazard and the
solution should be a bridge,
not a crossing.
"I think we're setting a dan-
gerous precedent by creating
a path," he said.
He said adding to the prob-
lem are drivers coming in
from outside the community
who are not familiar with golf
cart traffic..


"I think the developer
needs to find a solution and I
believe the solution is either a
bridge or a tunnel, not a cross-
ing."
Michael Francis, who repre-
sents part of The Villages, dis-
agreed.
"'Golf cart drivers cross
streets that are busier than
472 all the time," he said.
"I don't see this as a prob-
lem at all," he. said. "I don't
see this as a great safety
issue...I think we'll be fine."
After further discussion, the
---- .-.-.--- .-.- .. .. -. .L --... .. ... .- .


commission unanimously
voted to order a traffic study
to validate the request regard-
ing the proposed crossing and
the developer instituting traf-
fic calming devices.
They also voted 4-1 to adopt
a resolution to allow the cross-
ing if the speed limit is low-
ered to 35 miles per hour or
lower, pending the outcome of
the study, with Roberts casting
the dissenting vote.

Officials meet to


discuss growth


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

School district and local
government leaders meet
again next week to continue
looking at ways the Sumter
County school system can
meet the demands of the
county as new growth occurs.
Last fall, representatives of
the school district and local
government launched a series
of growth management meet-
ings aimed at ensuring that
Sumter County -will be- pre-,
pared for an influx of new res-.
idents and new students in
the future.
Required by state law, lead-
ers are hoping to create a plan
that addresses local growth


issues and includes steps that
the school district, county and
cities can take to contend with
that anticipated growth.
The meeting is scheduled
from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on
Friday, Feb. 24, at the School
Board meeting room in school
district offices on County
Road 476.
"The meetings can be very
beneficial to the public," said
School Supt. Rick Shirley
"They provide a good oppor-
tunity to get an overview of
what's going on countywide
(concerning development),"
he said.
The goal is to develop a
growth plan that will be

Sheriff's Office divers set
out Friday on a search at
Outlet Park in Lake
Panasoffke on a tip that some-
thing resembling a rifle was
tossed into the water recently.
It was found the same day,
loaded, dripping wet and
muddy.
But what came as somewhat
of a surprise to law enforce-
ment officers was that it actu-
ally turned out to be just a BB


gun, covered in camouflage
tape.
Still, it's a mystery why
someone would go to the trou-
ble of coming to the outlet in
the early evening just to toss a.

On Feb. 12, a man who saw
someone toss the object into
the water found a deputy in
town and told him about it.
He said he saw a full-size

ROBIN EDDINS
Times Correspondent

The long awaited day has
come as the groundbreaking
commenced on the new build-
ing being constructed for the
Sumter County Youth Center
on St. Clair Street in

The old building was razed
after the end of last year's
school term and the area
cleared for the new building.
While some glitches delayed
the commencement, the roof
was completed and is patiently
waiting and ready to be place
atop the new 75 foot by 100 foot
building to better service the
youth .in the north end of the
county.

gations that several animals
at the woman's home were
not being cared for properly.
Penny Patrick, 28,

iff's Lt. Bobby Caruthers.
At Patrick's home, investi-
gators found several dogs

deprived of food," Caruthers
said.
"There were numerous
cats roaming around the res-
idence, many of them did not'


look like they were in good
health," he said.:
SAt' the"' time, Patrick
informed authorities that the
animals belonged to her hus-
band and that he was not
available to care for them,
according to Caruthers.
Patrick gave Animal

Hoffman's idea isn't


realistic right now

In some idealistic sense, County Commissioner Richard Hoffman's idea not
to accept federal money for local projects is admirable.
He's got a great economic philosophy but it's just not very practical, not the
way he's trying to sell it
Unfortunately, if you realistically think about what Hoffman is proposing, it
tells another story completely.
Last week, again Hoffman promoted his stance to have the County
Commission contact District 5 Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite (R-.
Brooksville) and inform her that Sumter County will not accept "pork money"
that she has helped channel to Sumter County through the federal govern-
ment.
Hoffman maintains that the federal government is facing a record deficit
and shouldn't be adding to that by sending unnecessary money to counties to
fund pet projects.
Hoffman's vision would be great if his intention was to work with other coun-
ties, banding together to create a solid push to stop this sort of spending. After
all, the money that comes to Sumter from the federal government is being col-
lected from taxpayers around the country. Sumter County should absolutely
quit seeking federal dollars- that is, the minute residents don't have to help
fund other pet projects around the country. It would be great if we could some-
how see that all counties and communities are self-sustaining.
But Hoffman isn't proposing doing that. It's almost as if his intention is to
somehow give Brown-Waite a black eye.
Hoffman's viewpoint definitely reflects the difference between two cultures.
Hoffman, from The Villages, lives in a World of neatly manicured roads and
pristine parks and golf courses. He resides in an affluent part of the county,
and his attitude reflects that. : :. :
But most of Sumter County isn't like The Villages.
Communities outside that development struggle. They have fundraisers to
keep local projects alive. They rely on volunteers to maintain their cemeteries
and fund their community groups.
Groups have meetings in buildings that need to be painted, need new furni-
ture and need renovations.
Outside of The Villages, organizations fight to stay alive in Sumter County.
The Sumter County Association for Retarded Citizens, for example, battles
regularly with government programs that all too regularly attempt to cut their
funding. They are forced to battle just in order to provide the services that p'ro-
vide human beings with the dignity and care that they should be entitled to.
We suggest that Hoffman visit SCARC and see if he still believes the county
shouldn't be seeking federal dollars.
The Humane Society of Sumter County works unceasingly to provide help to
- stray and unwanted animals. Their road too, isn't an easy one. While condi-
tions are improving, there have been battles to just find enough money to keep
unwanted animals from being kept in unsuitable housing conditions.
People outside The Villages know all too well how much some additional
federal dollars can help certain causes. They know it every time an organiza-
tion has a fundraiser for some special project They know it every time they
have to say no when asked for a contribution because there are just too many
of them.
We'd love to see Hoffman's proposal supported by every county and city in
Florida and in the country. At that point, then maybe something could be done
to revolutionize federal spending.
But for right now, we don't think Hoffman's suggestion makes much sense
and we wonder about his motives.
Those same residents who won't benefit from federal revenue, will continue
to scrape up enough to help the mentally challenged and house the animals
and maintain community cemeteries all while they're forced to continue
anteing up at the pork belly table.
They just won't get any of the meat.

A farewell to Oxford


Today, a small part of me died. '
I saw my town beaten to death. No
longer were my trees there, no longer
did the picture that I always had in my
mind exist.
It looked as if someone savagely
beat my town. My town! Part of me!
My friend had been stabbed, had
been beaten. The dirt was torn up and
piled, left lying with its insides show-
ing. My friends, the trees were torn
out of the ground. Big majestic oaks
laying on the ground bare naked
roots drying in the sun. The big beau-
tiful branches cut, no more moss flut-
terilg in the breeze. So stripped of all
dignity! My friends!
This little stretch of road that had
been mine since I was 4 and able to
look out the car window at my friends.
It may seem silly to think of the trees
as friends but they had always been
there! The town had always been
there and no matter where I went in
the world that little .stretch of road
always stayed in my heart


Piece by piece, my town is disap-
pearing. And when my family is gone
from there and slabs of concrete are
all that remain who will I be?
When strangers and buildings fill
the places that used to be home; then
where will I return to?
I was mad that I didn't take a pic-
ture of Oxford, of 301. But just like
everything else the picture would
fade, and it seems my memory will be
all I will have left.
For now, there is still a small place
we call home. For now, we have poke
berries and fox squirrels and phlox
and hot days and afternoon thunder-
storms and woodpeckers and baby
calves and old fence posts, frogs
croaking at night, sunsets, the reflec-
tion of the sun and the clouds in the
pond the hope that it could all just
stay the same forever because deep
down I feel like everything I love will
be gone someday and that's what
hurts the most.

Simple hunting
accident
It is ridiculous that the mainline
media would try to turn a simple
hunting accident into a case
against Vice President Dick
Cheney and would indict him if it
were possible! The mainline
media is so anxious to be accusa-
tory, disrespectful and rude
toward President Bush or Dick
Cheney or others in the Bush
Administration that. they take
every opportunity to malign Bush
and Cheney when there is no sub-
stance to their charges.
The mainline media is trying to
make a mountain out of a mole-
hill. They are trying to divert
attention from other news stories
to what they prefer to focus on.
The mainline media is upset that
they were not notified first, even
before Harry Whittington
received medical attention. How
absurd!
Liberals and the mainline
media joked about the accidental
shooting, when it is nothing to joke
about. Dick Cheney feels badly
that he accidentally shot his
friend while hunting. Tuesday the
accident took a more serious turn
of events when Harry Whittington
suffered a mild heart attack while
in the hospital recovering from
the birdshot that traveled to his
heart. Whittington was moved
back to the intensive care unit to
be watched and for his privacy. He
was reported in stable condition.,
While the mainline media con-
tinues to make it an issue and
elaborate on the accidental shoot-
ing, Mr. Whittington continues to
improve. Harry Whittington was
quoted later as saying "it's much
ado about nothing!" That tells it
all, too bad the media does not
understand that people can see
through what they are doing! That
makes the mainline media even
less respected and appreciated by
the American people.
Mrs. Betty Sikes
They deserve a cost of
living adjustment
For more than 30 years, SCARC,
Inc. has cared for people with pro-
found handicaps and severe dis-
abilities in Sumter County. More
than 60 percent of our funding
comes from state and federal dol-
lars, however, a crisis is looming
that needs to be addressed now.


Everyone knows it's getting more
and more expensive to live in
Florida. While our per capital
income remains well below the
national average, rising costs for
fuel, utilities and housing impacts
everyone. For our organization and
countless other non-profits that
care for individuals with develop-
mentally disabilities, these fiscal
pressures have put the people we
serve in jeopardy.
As the governor and legislature
decide whether to approve budget
increases for citizens with develop-
mental disabilities, we are urging
them to consider a 10.5 percent
cost of living increase for the indi-
viduals receiving community-
based care through the Medicaid
waiver.
Consider this: Medicaid funding
for people with developmental dis-
abilities hasn't increased since
2003 when the state set funding
rates for services.
Since that time, utilities have
increased nearly 21 percent,
employer health insurance premi-
ums jumped about four times the
rate of inflation, minimum wage
increased 25 percent and gasoline
is up 78 percent per gallon.
Between 2003 and 2007 Florida's
rate of inflation will rise 10.5 per-
cent according to the governor's
office.
For community-based agencies
that provide 24-hour care, food,
clothing, personal hygiene, trans-
portation and rehabilitative servic-
es for individuals with severe dis-
abilities, Medicaid funding for
these services has not adjusted to
keep up with the rising costs. As a
result we're being forced to lay off
direct care staff, limit services and
in some cases, close our facilities
because we can't afford to keep
them open.
The governor and legislature
strongly support a community-
based system of care for individu-
als with developmental disabili-
ties. As more and more people with
developmental disabilities are
taken off the waiting list for home
and community-based care, they
deserve funding to cover all of the
services they need.
It's difficult for us to provide
these services facing deficits in our
budget We strive to provide the
best quality care for the people we
serve and families look to our staff


to give their loved ones a stable and
comfortable environment
We are a vital link to keeping
people with developmental dis-
abilities out of more costly institu-
tions. Approving a 10.5 percent cost
of living adjustment for individuals
receiving services under Medicaid-
funded waivers will help.
Without it, this system of care
will be severely strained. Group
homes may close. Day programs
may close or limit services.
Sincerely,
Marsha Woodard Perkins
Executive Director
Pork barrel politics
in Sumter County
I had the opportunity to attend
the County Commission meeting on
Tuesday, Feb. 14, and I saw a one-
sided issue on a recreation com-
plex in South Sumter mainly from
Commissioners Hoffman and
Francis, of The Villages. ,
From what I saw, we have no
friends from The Villages.
I would like for each and, every
one in the south end of the county to
remember the names when they go
to vote. Mr. Hoffman ranted and
raved about pork barrel politics.
You would think we had just robbed
a bank I have spent the last 18 years
trying to get a decent place for the
kids in South Sumter County to play.
I'll bet if it was to take 'money for a
new library in The Villages, he
would be the first person in line.
Follow the money trail, it leads
north.
To think I was open-minded we
had a fair opportunity to obtain a
decent "complex."
Well forget it Mr. Mask brought up
a motion for approval of the federal
grant and none of the commission-
ers would even second the motion
and the issue died, so we know the
respect Mr. Mask has from the other
commissioners.
Now I know why the people of
south Sumter County despise The
Villages of the north. My open-mind-
ed position toward The Villages has
changed. If The Villages wants you
to have a small morsel in the south
end of the county, you will get it If
not, you will do without it
Talk about "pork barrel politics."
Take all the tax money from
Sumter County and spend it in the
north end.

Sheriff's Det. Richard Fujimoto (right) retrieved a BB gun at Outlet Park in Lake Panasoffkee on
Friday, when the divers were searching for what was believed to be a rifle someone reportedly
tossed into the water. At left are Deputies John Farfaglia (back) and Jim Smothers.

on the road by some picnic

SheritTfs (flice report.
.The :witness indicated that

-bject that "appeared to be a
rifle or possibly a BB gun;"'
Sand that it was a dark color,
about three to four feet in
length ,
He described the man who
discarded the object as a
white male, about 200 pounds,


six feet tall, and in his late 20s
or early 30s.
The witness also said he
believed there, was a female
passenger in the truck.
In any case, the team found
the -BB gun in only about two
minutes in the murky brown
water.
"I'm just glad we recovered
it," said Lt. Bobby Caruthers,
Underwater+ Recovery Team..
Commander.
"To me this was a lot of luck,
but it does show these guys
are familiar with their sur-
roundings," he said, because
they found it quickly even
though they couldn't see at all


in the brown water
Det. Richard Fujimoto, who
found it, felt it beneath his
feet even though the water
was thoroughly littered with
tree limbs. The area they
searched was somewhat shal-
low, but the. divers quickly
sunk into the thick sludge
with water reaching their
elbows.
. ,While it miay be unlikely the>.
BB gun was used f6r any ille-
gal activities (except maybe
littering), detectives are going
to look it over anyway.
The BB gun was handed
over to. Det. Angie Wilkerson

ate the USDA Summer Food
Service Program for Children.
When school lunchrooms
close for the summer, a signif-
icant number of children in
low-income Florida commu-
nities could be at risk of
hunger or poor nutrition-
because free and reduced-

available.
USDAs Summer Food
Program is designed to bridge
this summer nutrition gap. It
reimburses organizations for
serving free, nutritious break-
fasts, lunches or snacks to
children in eligible low-


income areas. However, the
program continues to be
underutilized, largely due to a
lack of willing operators and
feeding sites. Last year
8,067,535 free meals were
served to low-income Florida
children at a USDA summer
food program. Yet the number
of free and reduced-price
school lunches that Florida
children ate during the school
year was 178,176,514.,.
In Florida the Summer

Education. To operate the
program this summer, organi-

"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 specic 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.

Business Assistance Center Debuts Website


LEESBURG Thinking of starting a
neW business or looking for ways to
improve an existing one? The Business
Assistance Center, at Lake-Sumter
Community College's Leesburg
Campus, has created a new website at
www.lscc.edu/bac. Serving as an infor-
mation resource for Lake and Sumter
County entrepreneurs,
its portal design provides an easy-to-
navigate, question-and-answer format
with links to national, state and local
business sites.
This is the first of a three-phase web-
site project which will offer a unique
business-to-business link between Lake
and.Sumter counties. Phase II will pro-


vide a listing and description of the
services that businesses require includ-
ing: financing information from the var-
ious lending institutions, attorneys and
their specialties, commercial real
estate information, CPA's, marketing
firms, consultants and much more.
Phase III will provide a one-stop listing
of seminars and classes, a newsletter,
and information on business events
within the two-county area. The BAC's
goal is to facilitate a hub that electroni-
cally provides information and
resources to help businesses prosper.
This February and March, the
Business Assistance Center is partner-
ing with the City of Leesburg to provide


a series of workshops which support the
USDA Rural' Business Development
Program. The free sessions will be
funded by the Minority/Women
Business Enterprise (The Alliance),
which provides loans to small and
emerging businesses with less than 20
employees and less than $1 million in
gross annual revenues. Please call the
Business Assistance Center for further

LAKE/SUMTER CHAPTER 414

MARKETING continuing with the four (4) P's of marketing we will consider the third (3) P
which is PRICE. Pricing seems to be the main issue with some small businesses, but remem-
ber it is only one consideration in the marketing of your business. There are several factors
that enter into establishing your price. Some are as follows:
1. WHAT ARE MY COST. This should be your first consideration, your price must
include all cost Cost consists of three things A. Material B. Labor C. Overhead
and D. Profit
A. Material consists of every thing that is a part of your product or service.
as in a PRODUCT ever piece, nut. screw, wood, metal, plastic, etc whether
purchased, made by you, or whatever the source, you get the idea, don't
leave anything out. If it is a SERVICE it is the same, everything you use in
the way of material to perform your service.
B. Labor this all of your time, your employee's time, or out side purchased
labor. Your time is valuable this is part of ho\V you earn your salary.
C. Overhead consists of some of the following: Rent, Utilities, License,
Advertising, Marketing, Leasing [vehicles, equipment, etc.*. Taxes,
Maintenance, and all other general continuing cost involved in running
a business.
D. Profit this is not a direct cost but must be considered in establishing
your price because that is what it is all about.
Pricing needs to consider other factors such as:
A. Retail sales direct to end user, this is at full price.
B. Distributor sales, what is the discounting schedule?
C. Uniqueness of the product or service.
D. Advantages of the business location.
E. Customer services offered. Your personal touch.
F. Quality of the product or service.
These are only a few factors, use your imagination as to why customers would
buy from you, these are of value, too.
Contact SCORE for added information and details about your pricing procedure
or other business assistance. Contact us at 352-589-2250 ext. 149 or at

Address: 3502 E. Warm Springs Ave, PO Box 456 Phone No. 352-748-1017
Coleman, FL 33521-0456

TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:

On,-r about March 13, 2Q06, the City of Coleman will request the Florida Department 'f,.
CoAiinity Affairs, drdi1nated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urbap.-'
Development, to remove the environmental conditions and release Federal funds urider

following project:

DCA No. P6DB-3K-05-70-02-N18
Drainage Improvements
Estimated Cost: $600,2000

It has been determined that such request for removal of environmental conditions will not
constitute an action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment;
accordingly the above-name. recipient has decided not to prepare an Environmental
Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (PL 91-190).

The reasons for such decisions not to prepare such Statement are as follows:

After an environmental assessment, a Finding of No Significant Impact was made.
Further this project does not involve any situations that would require an
Environmental Impact Statement under 24 C.F.R. 58.37.

An Environmental Review Record respecting the above project has been made by the
above named recipient that documents the environmental review of the project and more
fully sets forth the reasons why such Statement is not required. The Environmental
Review Record is on file at the above address and is available for public examination and
copying upon request at the Coleman City Hall at the above address between the hours of
9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

No further environmental review of such project is proposed to be conducted prior to the
request for removal of environmental conditions.

All interested agencies, groups and persons disagreeing with this decision are invited to
submit written comments for consideration by the recipient to Lonnie G. Evans, Mayor.
Such written comments should be received at the address specified on or before March
10, 2006. All such comments so received will be considered and the recipient will not
request the removal of environmental conditions or take any administrative action on the
above project until the date specified in the preceding sentence.

The recipient will undertake the project described above with Block Grant funds from the
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under Title 1 of the Housing
and Community Development Act of 1974 through the State of Florida. The recipient is
certifying to DCA that its environmental certifying officer identified below, in the official
capacity as Mayor, consents to accept that jurisdiction of the federal courts if an action is
brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to environmental reviews, decision making
and action; and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal effect of the
certification is that upon its approval the recipient may use the Block Grant funds and
HUD will have satisfied its responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act of
1969. DCA will accept an objection to its approval only if it is on one of the following
bases: (a) that the certification was not in fact executed by the certifying officer or other
officer of applicant approved by DCA; or (b) that applicant's environmental review record
for the project indicates omission of a required decision finding or step applicable to the
project in the environmental review process. Objections must be prepared and submitted
in accordance with the required procedure (24 C.F.R. part 58) and may be addressed to
DCA, Florida Department of Community Affairs, Bureau of Community Development,

will not be considered by DCA.

Sheppard, Hatfield and Gentry Wildwood High School lists its quarter 2 honor roll


Sumter Electric
Cooperative has announced
that three incumbent mem-
bers of the Co-op's Board of
Trustees have been re-elected
to serve additional three year
terms on SECO's governing
body.
In elections held in late
January and February, Wilson
G. Sheppard of Sorrento was
re-elected to represent SECO
members in District 8.
Sheppard is a third genera-
tion Floridian and prior to
retirement was a certified.
public accountant in central
Florida until 1999. He also
served as a Lake County
School Board trustee arid on
the Lake County Planning and
Zoning Board. Additionally,
he served as a small claims
and county court mediator.
His historical knowledge of
the Co-op and its daily opera-
tions has served the SECO
board and membership well.
Jerry D. Hatfield : of
Umatilla was re-elected to
represent SECO members in
District 9. Long -involved in
education as an administrator,
and teacher, Hatfield is now a
charter. school consultant.
Prior to this he served as the
principal of the Spring Creek,
Altoona, and Midway elemen-
tary schools. He has served as
a member of the Florida
Department of Education
Academic Accountability
Panel and president of the
Lake County Association of
School Administrators.
His skill set has brought
even more diversity to the
SECO Board.
The election in SECO
District 7 resulted in the re-


election of Robert G. Gentry of
Rainbow Lakes. Gentry
moved to Florida in 1983 from
Illinois where he had a distin-
guished career as an educator
and as a superintendent of
schools. He served for 13
years as a member of the advi-
sory committee for Rainbow
Lakes Estates. His experience.
with administrative matters
dovetails well with his SECO
Board participation.
The SECO. Board of
Trustees is comprised of nine
members representing: nine
different districts in -the Co-:
op's nearly 2,000 square mile
service territory. SECO mem-
bers get to vote on who repre-
sents them on the SECO
Board every, three years.
Elections are staggered so
that three board trustees' are
running for election in any
given year. That assures conti-
nuity on the board.
SECO Director of Public
Affairs Barry BoTwman said,
"It probably isn't likely that
anyone knows the people who"
are on the boards of any other
types of utilities such as the
telephone company, the gas
company. etc. It's doubtful
most people get to choose who
represents them on those
boards. And, it is highly
unlikely anyone could contact
those board members with a
problem or question. That's
the reason the cooperative
business model is so special.
"In an electric cooperative
like SECO, any qualified
member in good standing can
serve on the board of trustees
and it is the members them-
selves who elect their repre-
sentatives," Bowman said.

MARTIN GRUM AND
WENDEL MARTINKOVIC

Things to do in March, for
Central Florida homeowners.
Lawns, this is the month
when one should fertilize the
lawn.
For best results, apply 61b.
of 16-4-8 or 15-0-15 slow
release fertilizer per 1000
square feet
This should be repeated in
September. If lawn is not up to
par by the end of May, give it a
dose of sewage sludge, such as
Milorganite (16 pounds per
1000 square feet).
All annuals, perennials,
shrubs, and young trees
should have plant food now. A
balanced fertilizer like 6-6-6
or 8-8-8 can be used.
Azaleas, Camellias,
Gardenias or other acid loving
plants need an Azalea
Special.
Annuals, (hopefully this was
the last frost that we have to
endure. (The last frost record-
ed in Sumter County was
March 15). Spring and sum-
mer blooming annuals should
be planted now, so that they


have time to develop a good
root system before the sum-
mer heat hits us,
Citrus trees can be planted
now. Call or visit the Master
Gardeners office for the best
varieties to suit your needs.
Vegetables, all warm season
crops should be planted or
seeded now. Fertilize with a
good quality 6-6-6 as needed.
Mulches are beneficial to
all landscape plants except
Citrus trees.
Mulches conserve water,
cool the soil for the roots, sup-
press weeds, and keep the
string trimmers away from the
stems of plants.
.Oak leaves and pine'straw
make excellent mulch, espe-
cially for Azaleas and
Camellias. Don't waste them.
Pruning and cleaning the
yard must be done now. Prune
all broad-leaved evergreen
shrubs for size and shape.
Leave the spring flowering
plants alone till they have fin-
ished flowering.
Don't forget to prune off all
winter damage,
Poinsettias should be plant-
ed outside now and cut back


to about four inches. The cut-
tings can be used to propagate
new plants.
Light maintenance pruning
may be done any time of the
year to keep plants at desired
heights and shape.
Plant clinics are held at the
extension office in Sumter
County 793-2728 on
Thursday, as well as 1 to 4pm
on the first Monday of. every
month at the Sumter County
Annex on County Road 466;
and a Florida Friendly
Landscape Series is held from
5 to 6 pm on 'the second
Wednesday of every month at
the Lake Panasoffkee
Recreation Center.

The 16th annual Lake
Panaso'lkee Elementary
School Super Bowl ended
with a 12 to 6 for the elemen-

A touchdown was called
back on the Steelers when one
of the players ran out oC

That score would have tied
up the game, so the win went
to the Seahawks.
The annual game is a tradi-

While the fifth grade classes
vie on the field and the cheer-

sidelines, students from the
other grades witness the exhi-

Parents even come out to
support their elementary-
aged kids and check out the
game.
After the game, it's time for
a tailgate party of sorts, as stu-

enjoy hot dogs and chips.
While typically ends with


the same results as the nation-

was a little different the

took their Steelers.
Because of inclement
weather, it was also played
after the original Super Bowl,
rather than the Friday before.


Mr. Ashley gives Caleb Brown some playing advice during the
game.

who created the Wheelin'
Sportsmen organization.
Thomas himself is paralyzed,
according to Blanton.
The event will be in the typ-
ical style of the federation's
banquets, except all the funds
raised from the event will go
to the Wheelin' Sportsmen, to
get people with disabilities
outdoors.
According to Blanton they
come up with ways for people
with disabilities to do every-
thing from fish to hunt
That may mean anything


from using their ingenuity to
create special equipment to
enabling them to get to facili-
ties. Blanton and some of the
others actually design and
put together equipment to fit
each individual's needs.
For example, in one case,
Blanton put together a piece
of equipment to hold
Strickland's gun in place on
his wheelchair.
Josh Strickland, a Bushnell
resident who has cerebral
palsy, said he was successful
at getting an eight-point buck
with help from the organiza-
tion.
"There are people way
worse than me that are out
there doing this. They make a
way for them to do it,"
Strickland said.
It was about 5:30 a.m. when
Strickland drove his van out
to a spot that he could maneu-
ver his wheelchair through
and the chair did pretty well,-
he said.
He moved into the "blind,"
an area where tree stands or
camouflage tents are housed.
He entered a tent and waited
with organization member
Justin Parish.
"I had been with my dad
and just kind of watched," he
said.
It was, "My first time actu-
ally doing it myself."
Strickland serves on the
board and is currently one of
the key coordinators in get-
ting the word out locally, as
well as getting support for the
banquet and getting tickets
sold.
The national organization
holds approximately 500 sim-
ilar events around the nation.
Blanton is a regional coor-
dinator and deals with
Florida, Georgia, Montana,
Idaho, Oregon, Washington
State, Hawaii and Alaska.
In Sept, the organization


took 12 kids from around the
country to Disney for four
days and three nights. They
spent an entire Saturday fish-
ing on theme park property.
Blanton said he got into the
organization through a friend
of his. He worked with the
friend in the 1980's in Crystal
River.
With a long-term back-
ground in outdoor sports,
Blanton applied for the posi-
tion with Wheelin'
Sportsmen.
He said they've had some
great partners for this event,
pointing out that Cindy's
Chevrolet and the 75 Chrome
Shop took on a major part of
the expense in putting it
together.
So if you love the outdoors,
but disabilities challenge you


in being able to pursue sports
adventures, you might want
to contact the organization. If
you want to support the
effort, or would just- enjoy
spending an evening with
some avid outdoors enithusi-
asts, collecting some wildlife
items or sampling a great din-
ner, contact Blanton or one of
the other locations for tickets.
The sportsmen provide
everything for the participant
from snacks to. eat during
their wait in the woods; to the
actual weapons they will use.
For more information, call
Blanton at 352-212-9718 or see
their website at www.wheel-
insportsmen.org
Tickets are available at
Nordic's Pawn, Par Gas,
Sumter Realty and Pana-
Vista.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGE OF LAND

USE AND OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR SUMTER

COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

Sumter County, Florida, by and through its Board of County Commissioners, will hear an application
to make amendments to the Comprehensive Plan, including a change to the use of land within the

application proposes to transmit to the Florida Department of Community Affairs (DCA) these
amendments to the Sumter County Comprehensive Plan, for its objections, recommendations and
comments, pursuant to the requirements of Chapter 163, Florida Statutes.

Prior to its transmittal to DCA for review, two public hearings on the proposed amendments will be
held in the Sumter County Courthouse, 209 North Florida Street, Bushnell, Florida, as follows:

Generally, the proposed amendments to the Future Land Use Map change the existing land use of
the property shown from Agricultural or Commercial to Mixed Use, and extend the urban
development area boundary to encompass the Mixed Use areas. The total acreage involved is 89.
The areas are proposed to be added to the Villages of Sumter, DRI. No additional housing or
commercial entitlements are requested. No text amendments to the Comprehensive Plan are
proposed. This application is filed in conjunction with a proposed change to the Development Order

Division of Planning and Development, Room 324, Sumter County Courthouse, between the hours of

On the trail of a ten-pound largemouth black bass (Part 1)


S ood folks, if I am
* blessed with having a
sure nuff passion for
an outdoor related activity
any greater than that of hunt-
ing wild turkey gobblers in
the springtime it must be
fishing for large mouth black
bass while using
live native golden -
shiners as bait.
Having admitted
to the fact that I
dearly love to use
live shiners while ,
bass fishing I know
that there are
some of you purist
bass fishermen out
there who would
not dare, under
any circum- JAI
stances, attempt to ADJ
catch a big bucket
mouth black bass
with anything other that
some fancy man-made artifi-
cial lure while at the same
time possibly even look down
your noses at those of us bass
fishermen who unabashedly
have no remorse at all using
live shiners as bait as we pur-
sue the greatest freshwater
game fish in the world.
Seriously now with all
jokes aside, I do enjoy bass
fishing in the spring for tro-
phy-sized large mouth black'
bass with live bait. It is in the
late winter and early spring-
time that the big female
brood bass starts to go on into
their spawning cycles and as
Sa rule they usually go on a
feeding frenzy a few days
before starting to lay their
eggs. There is nothing they
like to feed on better here in
Florida than a native wild
golden shiner.
The truth of the matter is, I
also enjoy fishing for bass
with artificial lures but dur-
ing the months of January
February, and .March I want
to be on the water some-
where tempting those really
big sow bass with a live well
full of wild shiners about
seven or eight inches long.
The rest of the year I use
artificial lures and if you saw
the size of my freshwater
fishing tackle box and the


A


vast assortment of lures of
every conceivable size and
color you might think I would
need a big wheelbarrow just
to haul it from my pick up
truck to the boat.
Shug says that I have this
strange addiction of not
being able to go in a
- sporting goods
store during fishing
season and not buy
at least a couple of
new lures of some
type or another.
Worse yet, I got at
least two more
tackle boxes
crammed slap full
of salt-water fishing
tackle to boot.
IE When I was a boy
MS growing up on the
a banks of the once
pristine and beauti-
ful Fennholloway River up in
Taylor County, I had the won-
derful opportunity to be able
to fish just about anytime I
wanted to. Big ole bass and
all kinds of brim and catfish
abounded in the slow moving
dark coffee colored current
of the river and you can bet
me and my buddies used
every trick in the book to try
and catch all the fish anyway
we could.
Looking back, some of our
devious methods of catching
fish in those bygone days
were not at all legal by
today's modern standards
but they were not frowned on
back then and they sure were
appreciated by my mama
when I showed up with a nice
stinger offish. If I had lucked
out and caught a big seven or
eight pound trout it was time
for some serious praise and
much jubilation.
My daddy was an avid fish-
erman and his methods not
only included using a con-
ventional cane pole and rod
and reel as he had many
other tricks to put fish on the
supper table. He was a well-
known expert skilled in the
method of shooting big bass
with a thirty-thirty rifle using
a full-jacketed bullet. This
was a unique skill.
.While some of our methods


of bringing home fish to eat
would surely be frowned on
big time in today's society, we
Crackers were not hoggish
back then and we had a very
strict rule and unwritten
code of only taking what we
could eat or share with a
needy neighbor. Back in
those days, we did not have
the modern luxury of having
a freezer to keep large quan-
tities of freshwater fish.
In fact, as I remember, we
did not get a refrigerator
until I was in high school but
we did have a big wooden ice
box and a couple of times a
week we would have a block
of ice delivered to our house.
Mama would fry up all the
fish that had been caught
along with a big batch of
scratch made hush puppies
and a great big pot of grits. By
the way, back then Cracker
folks around where I lived
did not put any cheese in the
grits either and the fish were
cooked in home rendered
hog lard to boot.
Hard hoop cheese was usu-'
ally enjoyed at the neighbor-
hood country store with a
sleeve of soda crackers
washed down with a big 12
ouncer RC or Pepsi.
Incidentally, that hard hood
cheese also makes good bait
in a rattrap.
In the previous paragraph
I mentioned that I often
brought home a big trout that
had been caught one way or
another. That was no mistake
because here in Florida most
Crackers referred to large
mouth black bass as being
trout.
Good friends, you have got.
to have a lot of miles on you
as well as being a certified
Florida Cracker old enough
to draw your Social Security
pension to remember that
factual bit of lore. For my
part, it was not until I left
home to pull a hitch in the
Army that I found out what
real freshwater trout were.
Come to think about it, I don't
think my daddy every called
a bass anything but a trout
his entire life. To be contin-
ued,

Crtiter CHATTER




New Animal Control facility would keep many dogs comfortable


Dusty is an adorable 6
year old Sheltie -mix.
He has a very sweet
personality and loves atten-
tion. Dusty loves going for
long walks and
car rides. He also """"--
loves to be
groomed! Dusty's
ideal home would
be in an adult
household, or y .;
with a family with
older children. If
you would like to "
make Dusty part
of your family, e-
mail the Humane
Society/SPCA of LIN
Sumter County at: GRAV
humane@sum.net
or mail in your
request to: PO. Box 67, Lake
Panasoffkee, Fl. 33538. Visit
us on line at: www.hsspca.org.
The Humane Society/SPCA
of Sumter County is dedicated
to the welfare of animals. We
are an independent non-prof-


D'


it organization, all volunteers,
and not funded by any govern-
mental agencies. Over the
past year, we have seen
improvements finally being
made at the county's
SAnimal Control facil-
ity. A promise of a
new building to be
constructed would
keep many of dogs in
M. a climate controlled
building.
But even after the
new building is com-
pleted, there still
remains the outside
kennel areas where;
A dogs may still be left
ES exposed to freezing
M winter nights. Our
hope is that a solu-
tion to this problem is being
explored by county officials
and contractors. So while the
problem remains,, we ask the
good citizens of Sumter
County to continue donating
blankets to alleviate the suf-


fering of the dogs at the coun-
ty's facility. Please bring your
donated blankets to Animal
Control in Lake Panasoffkee,
or you can drop blankets off at
Prosthetic Research
Specialists, Inc. in Bushnell.
Blankets will continue to be
collected throughout the sum-
mer months also, to assure
that there will always be
enough for every dog left out
in the cold.
New leadership at the coun-
ty's Animal Control facility has
more compassionate person-
nel working with the animals.
The county's Animal Control
officers, are trained officers,
certified in their own respec-
tive fields. They are dedicat-
ed personnel that serve the
public with professionalism
and determination. Yet
Sumter County offers the low-
est wages to these officers
then all surrounding counties.
How does the county expect to
keep trained Animal Control


officers when job offers in sur-
rounding counties have a
much higher starting wage?
Animal Control officers are
at risk of injuries from ani-
mals, and possible violence
from people who abuse and
fight animals. These are the
hazards of their job. Sumter
County's Animal Control
department has made many
improvements over the past
year. Keeping the current
personnel is key to continued
positive progress.
The HumaneSociety/SPCA
of 'Sumter County is con-
cerned about the welfare and
humane treatment of animals.
We believe that the needs of
the animals as well as the citi-
zens of our county are being
met with the competent per-
sonnel, at Animal Control,
along with the assistance of
the Humane Society/SPCA.
We support higher wages
more comparable with sur-
rounding counties for these


Dusty loves going for long walks and car rides.

Spring pruning time


Grace NOTES


Late winter and early spring
is the time to prune many
shrubs and small trees in the
yard. .Shrubs that bloom in
summer and fall generally
develop flowers on current
seasons growth and should be
pruned before the first flush of
growth in the spring. Shrubs
that bloom .in the spring or win-
ter should be pruned immedi-
ately after flowering has fin-
ished. Pruning is practiced to
maintain plant health, control
plant growth, and encourage
flowering and fruiting. These
objectives should be remem-
bered as you prune.
Pruning should encourage
plant health, not plant disease;
therefore, it is important to
prune properly using the cor-
rect pruning tools. For general
cleanup hand pruning shears
are used, loppers may be used
for branches up to one half
inch, a pruning saw can be
used for larger branches and
hedge shears should be used to
trim closely clipped hedges
only. All tools should be kept
sharp. Sharp tools not only .cut
easier, but will not bruise-the
plant tissue. Bruising the plant
causes slower healing of the
wound and causes an increase
in the probability of disease.
A clean cut should be made.
This means the cut surface
should be smooth and care
should be taken not to insure
the plant around the cut, or rip
or tear the bark above or below
the cut The cambium layer, a
thin layer of cells just below
the bark, which is important in
wound healing, is easily
injured. Do not twist or turn
the shears as you cut because


you will injure the plant as
well as you shears.
Painting the wounds witl
tree wound dressing has lately
become a controversial prac
tice. The standard recommend
dation has been to paint al)
wounds over one inch in diam
eter with a quality tree wound
dressing to protect the cut sur
face. Some research has show
that upon exposure to the sun
the protective coating ofter
cracks, and moisture enters
the cracks and accumulates ir
pockets that may occui
between the wood and the
wound covering. This situation
would be even more inviting tc
wood-rotting organism thar
one with no wound cover.
Clipped hedges require e
specialized type of pruning
and may' become a continued
job during the growing season
There are two important fac
tors to remember aboui
clipped hedges. The hedge
should be clipped while the
new growth is green and succu.
lent, Also, the plant should be
trimmed so that the base of the
hedge is wider than the top sc
that light can reach the lowel
leaves.
Unless a shrub is a topiary
espalier, or part of a formal
hedge it should not be closely
clipped but allowed to develop
into a naturalistic form. This
does not mean that the plant
should be left alone, but thai
pruning is done to enhance the
natural beauty of the plant
The first step in pruning is tc
remove all dead, diseased, o0
injured branches. Once this is
done it may be necessary tc
thin out the plant
