County to decide on leadership plan


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

It's apparently going to take
at least a couple more weeks
before the Sumter County
Commission decides who is
going guide the county during
the upcoming absence of
County Administrator Bradley
Arnold.
Commissioners were sched-
uled to consider Arnold's pro-
posed "Interim Management
Plan" which would place
Assistant County Administra-
tor


Sandra Howell as the inter-
im county administrator and
Community Service Director
Jim Sparks as the interim
assistant county administra-
tor.
But, the proposal rapidly
became a somewhat con-
tentious issue among commis-
sioners on Tuesday as
Commissioner Michael
Francis attempted to get the
board to consider another
candidate for that temporary
post.
Without mentioning a spe-
cific name, Francis touted the
possibility of using a "volun-

touted the possibility of using a "volunteer

Bradley could return.


teer of extraordinary qualifi-
cations" to take on the interim
administrator post until
Bradley could return.
After the meeting, t hat indi-
vidual was identified as
Villages resident Don V


Hahnfeldt, whose resume
includes corporate experi-
ence serving as president and
chief executive officer of
Eurotech, LTD. Prior to that
he listed one year as city man-
ager of Sunnyside,


Washington, and a career in
the U.S. Navy that concluded
with the position of com-
modore, Trident Submarine
Squadron, Bangor,
Washington.
The latter involved being
responsible for operation of a
fleet of eight Trident sub-
marines.
Commissioners didn't dis-
cuss Hahnfeldt's abilities, but
there was considerable
debate about how wide the
field of potential candidates
should be for the interim post.

SECO has annual


AMANDA MIhMS

On March 25. thousands of
Sumter Electric Cooperative
members once again made


their way to SECO's annual
meeting in Sumterville, which
has been going on in since
1940.

tric company, which was start-
ed in Sumterville, now spans

meeting
across Sumter, Marion, Citrus,
Lake, Levy, Hernando and
Pasco counties. On Saturday,
members came from all over
to learn about changes in the
company and take part in the
business meeting.
Though he couldn't provide
an exact number, Barry
Bowman, director of public
affairs, said they usually
expect between 3,500 and
4,000 people.
"It's a pretty good crowd,"
he said before the meeting.
During the meeting, offi-
cials updated members about
the co-op and highlighted its
charitable programs like
Pennies from Heaven and
annual scholarships to 12 high
school seniors.
Jim Duncan, chief execu-
tive officer, also gave mem-
bers some good news that gen-
erated a roar of applause
through the large audience,
from members who were
spread out on lawn chairs
even beyond the meeting

Thousands of Sumter Electric Cooperative members turned
out for the annual meeting in Sumterville on March 25.


Joey Chandler said. He also
noted that he had been con-
tacted by two of the applicants
that sought the administra-
tor's position when Arnold
was hired late last year.
"I have faith in her and in
his plan," Chandler said.
"We're not going backwards."
Chandler, along with other
commissioners, stated that
regardless of who was to hold
the interim slot, the county
would continue with the chain
of command and procedures

AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Only about three months
into the job of Sumter County
administrator, Bradley
Arnold has been called up by
the Navy
Reserve and
will be headed
to Afghanistan
in July
When Arnold
steps out of his
office and into
a uniform.
Ass i st a nt
Administrator Arnold
Sandee Howell will take over
during the 18 months he will
be overseas.
Arnold, 38, an intelligence
specialist in the Navy, said his
orders are to report for duty
July 10, and he hopes to have
worked through several of the
county's goals before then.
He said by July, "a good
tone" will be set for the budg-
et process and progress will
have been made on plans for
construction of the new jail as
well as other building solu-
tions the county is currently
working toward.
County Commissioner Jim
Roberts said the board is sup-
portive, and Arnold's job will
be there for him when he
returns.
"We understand. We were
aware of the possibility when
we hired him," he said.
"We're proud. He'll be in
our thoughts and prayers."
He said Arnold's status as a
reservist was not a factor dur-
ing the hiring process late last
year when the board was
looking for a replacement for
longtime County
Administrator Bernard Dew,
who retired in January.
"When your country is at
war, it happens. You just have
to handle it when the situa-
tion arises," he said.
Although Arnold signed a 1-
year contract with the county,
Roberts said he hopes Arnold
will be a permanent fixture in

$6, or 5.3 percent, he said.
Bowman credited the
change to "stability of natural
gas prices" and smart purchas-
es.
"That savings is being
passed on to members,"
Bowman said. "Our focus is
strictly on them."
But Duncan cautioned mem-
bers the change "may be a
short-lived decrease because
we're at the mercy of the mar-
ket"
Duncan credited the co-op's
values with its success.
"Here at SECO, we have a
people first philosophy,"
Duncan said. "Our growth in
new membership continues to
be phenomenal."
SECO currently has about
150,000 members.


The annual gathering was
also a chance for the co-op's
board of directors to recognize
two individuals' service dur-
ing SECO's early years with
the Pioneer Award. One recip-
ient, 89-year-old Ray Robbins,
helped to found the co-op in
the 1930s and was its first
employee. Recipient Jettie
Pearl (Mickler) Gulley was also
one of the co-op's first perma-
nent employees. Both were
there to accept the awards.
Besides sitting and listening
to the business meeting, there
was plenty for members to see
and do on Saturday.
Following the meeting,
there were prize drawings for
everything from appliances
and gift baskets to the biggest
cash prize of $1,000.
For those interested in
learning about SECO technol-
ogy, information booths were
set up in a large tent outside
the meeting pavilion for mem-
bers to see.

possibility of being called to
active duty.
When he first received the
news he was being tagged for
mobilization, he was given a
March 27 date to report.
"Tensions were high in my
household," he said.
It was a relief when he later
received orders to report in
July, he said.
Arnold made the announce-
ment at the March 21 commis-
sion meeting.
"I think that set their (com-

there's an opportunity to get a

Arnold, whose reservist
brother has been called to
active duty twice since
September 11, said his family is

Developer planning 260 apartments in Wildwood


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

More new development is in
the works for northern
Wildwood. This time, it comes
in the form of a proposal for
more than 260 apartments
near County Road 466, about
one-half mile west of U.S.
Highway 301.
The ContraVest develop-
ment company is planning
Courtney Woods on 25 acres


featuring garden apartments
with attached and detached
garages, a resort-style swim-
ming pool, fitness center and a
theater/meeting room.
Representatives from the
company, based in Lake Mary,
presented information about
the proposed development at
Monday's Wildwood City
Commission meeting, when
members voted unanimously
to enter into an agreement
with ContraVest to run sewer
and water lines to the property.


ContraVest Senior Vice
President Steven Ogier told
the commission said the com-
pany is planning a "low-densi-
ty project" with about 15 to 18
units per acre. The apartments
would be located in 2- and 3-
story buildings, he said.


Ogier said depending on the
market, monthly rental prices
would range from around $800
for one-bedroom units to about
$1,200 for three-bedroom
units.
"I think the demand in that
area is going to be pretty high,"


he said, and Wildwood is "a
vibrant and growing market"
Commissioner John Johnson
said the development would
be "outstanding for the com-
munity."
One technical issue brought
up at the meeting is the height
of the apartment buildings.
Currently, buildings are limit-
ed to a height of 35 feet, but
Mayor Ed Wolf said a 3-story
building would exceed that
height.
"We're going to change that


anyway," City Manager Jim
Stevens said.
ContraVest's recent projects
include developments in
Jacksonville, North Carolina
and Arizona, all containing
between 200 and 400 homes.
The Courtney Woods proper-
ty is located on the eastern
side of Lake Andrew Preserve,
another proposed develop-
ment, which is planned for 134
acres with 73 residential units.
Home. sites would vary from
small parcels up to 10 acres.

Bushnell residents may
have noticed a considerable
amount of smoke rising into
the sky around Dade
Battlefield Historic State
Park last week, but officials
say there was no cause for
alarm.
The fire Wednesday, March
22 was a prescribed burn by
state park officials that lasted
about four hours and covered
15 acres, according to Toby
Brewer, who supervised the
burn.
Brewer, park manager of
Werner-Boyce Salt Springs
State Park, said prescribed
burns are beneficial because
they help remove materials
in forests that fuel fires, mak-
ing the area safer.
"Once it's burned, it won't
burn again for another two or
three years."
Without prescribed burns,
"you just keep getting this
heavy buildup of fuel," he
said.
Another reason for period-
ic burns is to introduce envi-
ronmentally beneficial fires,


which occur naturally, but
are hindered by roads and
other aspects of develop-
ment.
Development can create
"little pockets of forest that
sometimes get deprived of
fire," he said. Historically,
forest fires in Florida, chiefly
causedby lightening, have
not been uncommon, he said.
"There are actually some.
trees that need fire to repro-
duce," like sand pines ..
Despite appearances, once
burned, the vegetation is not
all destroyed, he said.
"It browns things;., it
appears to look dead," he
said, but some of the large
trees "generally come back."
Burns encourage "survival
of the fittest" in the plant
community and animals tend
to move ahead of the fires.
He said ash from fires
enriches soil by providing
nitrogen, a natural fertilizer.
When park officials deter-
mine there is a need for a
prescribed burn, they wait
for the most favorable weath-


JARRED PARISH


er conditions.
"We use wind to steer the
fire," he said.
Before burning, officials
notify local fire and police
departments, as well as near-
by property owners.
"The biggest thing we try to
tell (residents) is we're burn-
ing under conditions we
pick."
Brewer said keeping
smoke away from houses and
highways is a main concern,
but prescribed burns typical-
ly run smoothly.

"We've been pretty success-
ful," he said.
Residents shouldn't be sur-
prised if they notice more
fires there in the future. A
different area of the park is
usually burned once a year,
he said.

Guarding resources


How plentiful will Sumter County
water resources be in the next
few years and beyond?
It's not an easy question to answer.
But some Sumter County residents are
already beginning to worry that if local
residents and officials don't begin
addressing the issue, Sumter County is
destined to become water poor, like
some other counties throughout the
state.
Water regulatory bodies urge water
conservation and warn us about the
precarious future of our water supply,
but developers continue to receive
water permits from the state for more
and more new housing. Industry con-
tinues to grow that also requires the
use of substantial water resources.
A few weeks ago, Citizens for Clean
Air and Water met with representatives
of the Southwest Florida Water
Management District (commonly called
Swiftmud) to discuss a Swiftmud pro-
posal to set new guidelines for mini-
mum water levels in local lakes.
At issue is whether the guidelines for
appropriate lake water levels will
decrease and what levels really .are
acceptable.
Swiftmud officials said once lakes
and other water bodies fall below the
minimum acceptable level for a speci-
fied period of time, they would have to
come up with a recovery plan and it
could interfere with issuing water per-
.m its. ; ... .
At that meeting, some residents of
Lake Miona voiced concerns that fur-
ther development in the area, particu-
larly in the nearby Villages, will nega-
tively impact groundwater and surface
water levels. I
Their concerns, coupled with con-
cerns about the impact that new min-
ing projects in the county will have on


water levels, are stirring awareness
that Sumter's water supply is not end-
less.
Others are concerned that there is
risk in waiting too long to adopt mini-
mum levels.
With Sumter County being one of the
fastest growing counties in the state,
it's time for local leaders to launch
whatever measures are necessary to
ensure that the county has an adequate
water supply in the future.
That action needs to come from the
County Commission.
Surrounding counties are initiating
measures to protect their water
resources and not depending solely on
the state.
In the past, water issues have been.
addressed throughout the state only
when emergencies arise when wells
start going dry, when sinkholes seem to
open near newly developed areas.
For Sumter County to successfully
manage its water resources, it will take
a board of County Commissioners that
is proactive. One that puts water
resource issues to the foreground and
begins discussions and considers
implementing plans now.
We'd like to see the County
Commission taking a more active role
in protecting Sumter's water
resources.
It may be. even more important for
Sumter to get involved than for other
counties because of its particularly'
rapid growth.
The Villages is not the only area of
substantial growth in the county. New
developments are popping up through-
out the county, and unless the board
immediately starts addressing this con-
cern, Sumter's water fate could be an
unpleasant one.


'Point system'


-is it a


sellout to developers?


How many of you readers know that
our county's agricultural zoning basis
of 1 unit in 10 acres is about to be
undercut by a "points system" to allow.
higher development density? That's
right, at the request of a developer for
a more profitable subdivision of lands
on the banks of the Withlacoochee
River near Nobleton, our county is
now on the verge of implementing a
"points system" to allow density to rise
from one unit in 10 acres maximum, to
perhaps as high as 3 units in 10 acres,
depending on this new system.
A developer's sweet deal, for sure;
on the verge of approval by our com-
missioners. Actually, our commission-
ers already approved this idea, but
thanks to the Department of
Community Affairs (DCA), it was
rejected and returned to the county! It
will be coming up again for approvals,
and absent some public outcry, may
very well pass again.
Why are our commissioners doing
this? Well, perhaps they don't know
any better. This is not intended to be
glib or disrespectful, this is just to
point out that a very large part of our
commissioners' decision-making
process is their reliance on their
staff's recommendations on an issue.
Our tax dollars pay for staff and con-
sultants to review matters coming up
for votes, and to advise the commis-
sioners of the staff view of the issue at
hand.
In this case, I wonder if county staff
ever told our commissioners that the
enactment of this amendment would
- create a violation of an existing part of


the comp plan that specifically
required 1 in 10 max density along the
Withlacoochee? Did the staff tell the
commissioners that the language in
the new law was loosely written,
allowing different "interpretations" of
it by future developers? And perhaps
most importantly, did staff tell the
commissioners to consider the
impacts of this new law higher den-
sities in all our agricultural lands as
it impacts our water reserves?
Our water supply here is not infinite
- the aquifer system is showing the
strain of over-pumping and overuse.
Credible studies are available from
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District and other agen-
cies that indicate our county water
reserves will soon be unsustainable -
or perhaps are already beyond that
point. While our commissioners, I
think, have not yet really focused on
this as a fast emerging problem for our
county; any idea to increase develop-
ment density in light of water con-
cerns seems irresponsible.
The commissioners need to hear
from you. Do you agree we should
increase density on our ag lands? Is
this your idea of good planning? Talk
to the commissioners, they'll listen,
they need public input The develop-
ers aren't shy or humble, they make
their point as they work to maximize
their profits. The commissioners have
heard from them and know what they
want Have the commissioners heard
from you?

Let's celebrate
'Sunshine' in Sumter
During the month of March, the
citizens of the State of Florida get
to celebrate "Sunshine Week" in
observance of our Government-in-
the-Sunshine Law.
The Florida Supreme Court is
quoted as stating in May, 1987,
"...The right of the public to be pres-
ent and to be heard during all phas-
es of. enactments by boards and
commissions is a source of strength
in our country'... "Regardless of
their good intentions, these speci-
fied boards and commissions,
through devious ways, should not
be allowed to deprive the public of
this inalienable right to be present
and to be heard at all deliberations
wherein decisions affecting the
public are being made..."
In an Informal Florida General


Opinion, May 1987, the following
was offered, "...The public input
factor .to be meaningful must be
available at all public meetings, at
all stages of the decision-making
process..."
These sentiments have been
repeated since 1987 in other
Florida Attorney General
Opinions. So, why does the Sumter
County Board of County
Commissioners, at the urging and
direction of the, county attorney,
trample these inalienable rights of
its citizens by not allowing public
input at all board meetings?
It does not matter whether you
are Republican, Democrat, inde-
pendent or what your political
party is, no elected official should
be allowed to trample our inalien-
able rights.
We the citizens should be
allowed to be present and heard at
all meetings of the board, regard-
less of what the county attorney
says.
Yes, reasonable.rules can apply
to conduct an orderly meeting, but
to say when or if a citizens) can
speak or not at a public meeting
seems to be in conflict with the rul-
ings/opinions.
In a letter dated Feb. 23, 2006,
from the county attorney to mem-
bers of the board, he states,
"...There is nothing illegal in a
board scheduling a workshop of the
board to plan or discuss something
that gives the board or staff input as
to a direction in which to proceed.
I suggest we keep the same policy
we have had in the past.
If a citizen wants to speak to an
issue that is not a public hearing
matter, this should be decided on a
case by case basis by the chair or on
motion of a commissioner..."
This letter should not be inter-
preted by the board to exclude the
public. The word "public" has been
omitted in his. advice on a work-
shop.
Is this not in direct conflict of
what the Florida Supreme Court
has said about being able to be
present and heard at all delibera-
tions wherein decisions affecting
the public are being made?


Are they not making decisions at
these workshops that will affect the
public?
We the citizens of this county do
not need elected officials who
trample our inalienable rights.
Hopefully in November of this
year, we will have two new commis-
sioners who have signed a contract
with the citizens of this county, not
to trample on our inalienable
rights, and instructions to the
board from county attorney must be
in full compliance with the rulings
and opinions of the Florida
Supreme Court or Florida Attorney
opinions.

How to prevent mildew


Do you have a mildew
problem? If you live in
a humid climate or
where the humidity level is
high during the summer
months, you probably do have
mildew. What is
mildew? Mildew is ......
mold. A mold such
as .mildew can
decompose cellu-
lose and lignin,
therefore ruining
paper and cellulose
fabrics that are not
protected. Wood,
paint, glue and
leather may be
attacked by mildew,
also. MAF
Mildew mold MAD
secretes an enzyme
that decomposes
organic matter and uses it for
growth and reproduction. High
humidity is required to
hydrate mildew cells and
materials on which they can
grow. Mildew is unsightly, pro-
duces an unpleasant odor, and
often acts as an allergen that
can create health problems.
What is necessary for
mildew to grow? Mildew
spores, or seed-like forms of
mildew, exist almost every-
where. They will not grow and
spread, however, unless cer-
tain conditions are met. There
are many varieties of mildew,
but generally the following
conditions contribute to
mildew growth: Optimal
growth temperature range for
molds is 77 degrees F to 88
degrees F; some growth may
occur anywhere between 32
degrees F to 95 degrees F.
Mildew requires moisture and
are aerobic (they require oxy-
gen for growth). They thrive on
organic materials coated with
organic matter such as food or
soil.
With mildew spores always
ready to grow in homes, what
protection is needed to stop
mildew from growing and
spreading? The key words are
"clean" and "dry." The first
step in avoiding mildew is to
plan a program to keep sur-
faces clean a regular routine.
Don't let bathrooms become
mildew gardens. Clean regu-
larly before mildew is visible.
Change air conditioner filters
frequently Check the drip pan
thi'dbrr. bit frost-free reftrigera-
tor and freezer Wipe up spills'
as they occur, and vacuum reg-
ularly. Wash off finger marks on
door sills. Don't let dirty laun-
dry pile up. Don't put sweaty
clothes back into closets. Once
shoes have been worn, they are
"conditioned" to grow mildew,
so let sweaty shoes dry
Mildew needs moisture to

grow. The big question is, "How
can you keep a home in warm,
humid Florida dry?" Try these
tips:
/ Every time people open
outside doors to come and go,
moisture moves
....i. inside. Therefore,
individuals need to
open and close
doors promptly.
/ Air enters
"J homes through
cracks and crevices.
i Look around win-
dows and doors to

light anywhere. If
S you see daylight,
THA invest in weather
DOX stripping to stop the
OX moisture.
/ Hold a lighted
match in front of each electri-
cal outlet. If the flame flickers,
moist air can leak in. There are
inserts. to put behind cover
plates to control air and mois-
ture leakage.
/ A fireplace has a large
opening that air and moisture
can come through. Make sure
the damper (and glass doors, if
present) is closed.
Moisture coming into the air-
conditioning system through
joints and cracks in duct work
are often the biggest source of
moisture where severe mildew
problems are found.
When the temperature of
outside air drops to the low 70
degrees during the late
evening, should the air condi-
tioning be turned off and win-
dows opened to save energy?
Not in Florida. That outside
air is saturated and will bring
in a lot of moisture.
Furnishings can soak up
excess moisture. When air con-
ditioning is turned on again, it
will have to work harder to
remove the excess moisture
from air and furnishings.
During this period, moisture
will be high ,enough to invite
mildew.
Keeping your home mildew
safe during warm, humid
weather requires a routine
that is not difficult but requires
planning and family team
effort.
Once mildew appears, it
should be removed as soon as
possible and precautions
should be taken'toiprevent-its
return by 'keeping' humidity'
levels low. '
For charts containing
instructions for dealing with
mildew problems on common-
ly affected surfaces, call the
University of Florida, IFAS,

Office at 352-793-2728 and ask
for the fact sheet, "How to
Prevent and Remove Mildew."

Staff Writer

"We've got the land, we're
ready. We're more than ready
to go."
"It's so close and yet so far,"
said Sheri Evans of a planned
animal shelter to house county
animals.
So far, the Humane
Society/SPCA of Sumter
County has managed to pull
together a five-acre parcel of
land and enough cash to build
an office and supply a fence,
but that's where the bucks stop.
"For us to be able to build a
shelter, it's going to take the
community to get behind us to
donate," she said.
The organization doesn't
receive any government funds,
she said pointing out that
there's a real identity crisis
between animal control and
her agency
"Even county employees
don't understand," she said,
noting they get no money from
the county. "Not a dime."
That means that the 25 dogs
and 15 cats being sheltered by
the agency are being kept by
volunteers in private homes.
And those numbers are low -
there are usually more.
Once they get the shelter,
they'll have 50 kennels, along
with a cat room in a 5,000-
square-foot building.
They'll also be able to per-
form medical exams on site
and able to provide necessary
care for the animals housed at
the shelter.
As for the needs now, Evans
asks, "When do you turn them
away? Do you turn them away
when people call you and say

ly sweet?"
She pointed out that volun-
teers have a hard time saying
no, very often pulling money
from their own pockets.
They're building to meet the
growing needs of the communi-
ty.
Last year, they took in more
animals than ever before 250.
"Sometimes we have to make
that heart-wrenching deci-
sion," she said.
Evans herself volunteers
more than 55 hours weekly,
uses her own vehicle and funds
the gasoline to serve as the
director
That's on top of the organiza-
tion's $11,000-plus that it took
last year to do cruelty investi-
gations and provide medical
care for those animals in
Sumter County.

money at all. We do better car-
ing for the animals."
But at the same time, "The

person should have the full
support of the board.
Although the eventual vote
to table the issue was unani-
mous, Chandler was adamant
about considering others.
"I'm not going to look at one
individual," Chandler said.
"Sandy Howell has been here
for 31 years."
"If the ship breaks down,
we'll fix it," he said.
But, later, Chandler called
the department heads by name
and warned them "we want go
back."

the organization that Arnold
had in place, lie said. "We ma3
start taking names and scratch-

When Chandler asked
Arnold if he understood what
the board wanted him to do,


And the cost of construction
is ever-increasing, with the
price of steels or metals or
other materials going up.
Even today, they estimate the
cost for the facility, with no
frills, only meeting hurricane
standards at more than
$700,000.
Evans said people think they
don't have to meet those stan-
dards, but it's required
because it's a public facility.
Along with monetary dona-
tions, they're accepting con-
struction materials, time and
expertise in areas.
Thanks to donations from
the public so far and some
grants from the estate of resi-
dent May Kay Schade, the
fence is going up and they have
the land and office.
The estate has provided
about $35,000 so far.
The site is a five-acre parcel
in Lake Panasoffkee just on
the east side of the Sumter
County landfill, near
Sumterville. The address is 998
CR 529A.


Arnold said wasn't exactly
clear and that some "parame-
ters" were needed.
"I don't know that two weeks
is going to change my mind, but
I will follow the board's direc-
tion," he said.

that he and Arnold were to con-

They're building to meet the
growing needs of the communi-
ty.
Evans said people don't have
to win the lottery, adding that
even a donation of $5 is wel-
comed.
"We're really good at being
magicians, stretching that five
into six or seven.
"Every little penny counts,"
she said.
She expressed gratitude to
Sumter Correctional
Institution and
Sgt. Hewitt for bringing out
inmate crews to provide labor
for building the fence, as well
as to Capt. Moffitt of the
Sumter County Sheriff's
Office.
She said the fence is being
erected a little bit at a time, as
the labor is available.
As for the office, it's in place,

that," Francis said.
Arnold explained that since
he's been at the job, he's
.always been sure to copy all E-
mails to Howell. He explained
that it was so she would be "in
the loop" that in the even he
was unavailable for some rea-
son to perform his job, she
would be informed and ready
to step in.
"Ms. Howell is putting her
self at risk by stepping up to the

'tor;" Arn.iold said. "I admire her

"Ms. Howell is capable't-N's

More Than Just Luncheons


On the second Thursday of each
month businesses throughout
Sumter County gather at the Lake
Sumter Community College to net-
work and learn about Sumter
County. The Chamber prides itself
on bringing in quality speakers and
establishing strong networking
opportunities.
During the past year the
Networking Luncheon has become
an integral part of the Chamber, but
the Sumter County Chamber of
Commerce offers more than just
luncheons.
A Chamber of Commerce serves
to help businesses do business in
and with its region. To accomplish
this, the Sumter Chamber offers a
variety of services available to
members only. Special advertis-
ing opportunities, professional
services, and networking opportu-
nities help to define the functions


of the Chamber.
As a member of the Sumter
County Chamber of Commerce you
have the opportunity to advertise in
Chamber publications. Chamber
publications include the annual
directory, maps, newsletter, and
Time and Temperature.
The most visible advertising ven-
ues are the maps and directories.
Published once a year the directory
is distributed to new members of
the community and visitors.
Currently distribution of the direc-
tory exceeds 3,000 annually. The
directory provides visitors and relo-
cating individuals with vital infor-
mation about the county. It is often
viewed as the best resource for busi-
nesses and individuals in Sumter.
The Chamber map has a distribu-
tion of 10,000 maps. As the cost of
road maps continue to rise, this free
publication is increasingly valu-


able. This map is' given free of
charge through banks, hotels, RV
parks, local government agencies
and a variety of Chamber venues,
Each month the Chamber pub-
lishes its newsletter the Sumter Biz
Connection. The newsletter is dis-
tributed through the Sumter County
Times and various venues through-
out the county. Circulation for the
newsletter currently exceeds 7,000
per month. Advertisement and arti-
cle placement is available through
the Chamber.
Time and Temperature is a serv-
ice unique to the Chamber.
Individuals call and learn the
weather forecast and hear adver-
tisements from our members. The
service collects an average of 1,500
calls a month.
For more information on these
and other issues please contact the
Chamber office at 352.793.3099.

E. Be COST EFFECTIVE. Is circulation of
advertising going to my target area? Is there
co-op advertising available from vendors?
Can you co-op with other businesses? Is it the
right time of the year? A smaller ad may do
the job i.e. a quarter page instead of a full or
half page. Buying a concentration of ads for a
few weeks may be more effective. Trade your
products or service for advertising.
There are several avenues of advertising,
television, radio, newspaper, direct mail, fly-
ers, magazine, specialty advertising (pens,
pads, etc.) and of course WORD OF MOUTH
has proven to be the best and least expensive.,
There is a lot more to consider in PROMO-
TION than there is space in this column.

Recruiting Tips To Survive In

Today's Tight Labor Market
The Central Florida economy continues to
gain strength in employment factors.
January's unemployment rate of 3.0% is among
our Region's lowest rates in years; Sumter
County's unemployment rate is 2.7% down
from 4.0% just a year ago; Central Florida has
gained 47,800 jobs in the last 12 months; and
WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA's (WCF)
State of the Workforce Study last Fall showed
more than half of the 500 local employers sur-
veyed were planning for expansion during the
next year to three years.
SIn a market like this, Central Florida
employers are finding it more and more diffi-
cult to fill their job opportunities with quali-
fied, skilled candidates. Employers are going
to have to become very resourceful, rely on
multiple recruitment strategies, and look at
non-traditional workers to fill their'openings.
WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA (WCF)
offers some tips to guide employers along the
way:
1. Employee Referrals. One of the best
sources of candidates is often referrals from
current employees. Consider offering finan-
cial incentives to employees for each referral
hired, and reward them again once the new
employee has been retained for 90 days or six
months.
2. Recruit from WCFs ONE-STOP CAREER
CENTERS. Listing your job opening in their
on-line job bank allows thousands of potential
job seekers to respond to. your ad. You have
already paid for this service with your tax dol-
lars, so there is no charge. The centers also
offer other options, like training grants and In-
House Recruitments, or mini-job fairs held in
the centers each day.
WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA
407/531-1222 www.WorkforceCentralFlorida.com
3. Consider Non-traditional Workers.
Offering the right benefits, flexible hours, or
position might attract older workers from
retirement, students or workers with disabili-
ties. Here are a few of the organizations you
might contact to reach out to these candidates:
Goodwill Industries 4071235-1500
AARP/Senior Employment Prog. 407/420-6936
Experience Works 866/967-9631
Lake County Tech Career Center 352/589-2250
Lake-Sumter Community College 3521323-3603
Orange County Tech Schools 407/246-7060 x4808
Osceola County Council on Aging 407/846-0413
Rollins College Career Ctr 407/646.2195
SCC Career Resource 407/328-2033
Seniors First 407/292-0177
TECO (Osceola Tech) 407/344-5080
UCF Career Services 407/823-2361
+ VCC Placement Office 407/299-5000 x1035
4. Be Competitive. Research how your com-
' /,"


pensation package compares to companies
competing for the same workers. Are you pay-
ing enough to attract the right applicants?
Take a look at your benefit package and per-
sonnel policies. Consider strategies such as
unique benefits, offering benefits to part-time
workers, onsite childcare, job sharing, flex-
time, and telecommuting.
. 5. List your Pay Range. In your advertise-
ments, list pay ranges ... honestly Ads that
don't include wage information gather little if
any attention from serious job seekers. And,
in today's market, expect qualified job seekers
to request the top of the range. Listing what
you can offer may make the difference in
whether or not a candidate takes your listing
seriously
6. Exercise Great HR Practices. Don't give
up checking references and drug testing, just
to hire someone quickly. Good candidates,
people with the skills you need, are getting.
offers, yes that's plural. But you don't want to
miss something important by making a hasty
offer.
7. Reach Out to Community Organizations.
Many of these organizations have employment
or news bulletin boards that are accessed by
the community. Here are a few of the organi-
zations you might consider sending your
employment notices to:
+ Christian Help CFEC 4071834.4223
+ Metropolitan Urban League 407/841-7654
+ Center for Independent Living 407/623-1070
+ ESTEEM, Inc 407/645-1193
Lutheran Social Services 407/869-1909
+ Osceola Association ARC 407/847-6016
The Jobs Partnership of FL 407/235-1522
8. Try Headhunters, Employment Agencies,
or TemporaryAgencies. Listing your positions

THE SUMTER COUNTY ELECTION SECTION

SftLORA LADS THE NATION IN ELECTION REFORM


The eliminaton of outdated voting systems and
technology has increased the accuracy of voting-- bolh
in facilitating the voter and in tabulating results
VOTER EMPOWERMENT
The Florida Slate Association of Supervisors of
Elections iFSASEi using resources on the local level.
and with financial help from the Stale, implemented a
slalewide uniform
voter education
S campaign The
Empo wereda
citizens who are
more involved than
ever before in the
elections process.








RECOUNT PROCEDURES
Recount procedures have also been streamlined
with the implementation of uniform standards for
conducting the recount, as well as clearly worded
definitions of how to interpret voter intent. More time
has also beers allotted for Supervisors to conduct Ihe
recount lessening the potential for error due to fatigue
and time constraints. An additional positive step is that
all recounts will be conducted in open, plain view. The
public has every reason to be confident in both the
method in which recounts are conducted and the
results obtained
POLL WORKERS
Poll workers are better trained than ever before
an can better assist those voters who vole at the
pol~. Uniform standards in the methods of training
poll workers, as well as the curriculum covered have
helped ensure a much more satisfactory experience
Poll workers also receive specialized training in
conflict resolution and accommodating voters with
disabilities.
In addition to enhanced training for Poll
workers, advancements in technology, such as the
Electronic Poll Book, will allow for increased efficiency
at each Precinct


ABSENTEE BALLOTS
With the elimination of the requirement fcr a
witnesses signature and the need to prove why an
absentee ballot was needed, the absentee voting
process has been opened up greatly More voters than
ever before are able to vote by absentee ballot,
ensuring their participation in the elections process.
Special attention was given to military and
overseas voters so that their votes would be counted
and not discarded because of technicalities
Eliminating cumbersome restrictions on absentee
voting has greatly decreased the number of rejected
absentee ballots
EARLY VOTING
Early voting has been an overwhelming success.
Voters have embraced the idea of being able to vote
on the day of their choosing. An added bonus for early
voters was the ability to make corrections to their
ballot prior to feeding it into the tabulator Those who
early voted in the touch screen counties were no
longer faced with the possibility of losing their vote due
to a stray mark on a ballot or because they had
chosen too many candidates in error Voter feedback
to early voting has been exceptionally positive.
One area of potential reform is the expansion of
early voting in the form of voting centers patterned
after the very successful model in Colorado Florida's
busy, highly mobile society deserves the chance to
vote in places more convenient than the current law
allows Following the Colorado model would enhance
the early voting experience and save money. The
Flonda State Association of Supervisors of Elections
will continue to work with the Florida Legislature to
bring this model to Florida.
PROVISIONAL BALLOTS
Among the many reforms brought on by the Help
America Vote Act. passed by Congress, was the
introduction of provisional ballots. Voters who might
have been simply turned away in the past may now
cast a provisional ballot, giving the Canvassing Board
the lime to determine the eligibility of the voter and
their ballot
While technological advancements have become
a major part of election reform. Election Officials in
Florida wilI continue to stress the Three P s' when it
comes to administration and security issues. Policies,
Procedures, and most importantly, People. Successful
elections result from sound policies, proper procedure
in carrying oul Ihose policies, and Ihe principled
people that compnse the most capable slaffs found in
each office of the Supervisor of Elections
A commitment to honest and fair elections will always
remain the top priority.

Oxford teen raises Relay funds from pageant


Last Saturday, a beauty pag-
eant was held at the Sumter
County Fairgrounds that had
a special goal.
The competitors not only
participated but also helped
to raised funds to help fight
cancer.
Each contestant, in order to
enter the pageant, was
required to raise a minimum
of $100. Getting sponsors to
help an entrant is not out of
the ordinary but, raising the
funds for a charity was a bit of
a difference that made this
competition a cut above the
rest Six contestants raised an
impressive $1,100 for the
charity, Relay for Life.
They were: Amber
Caruthers, Tyler Foster,
Christina Chandler, Taylor
Wine, Kayla Lively and Calah
Carmicheal.
Brittani White, a junior at
Belleview High School and an
Oxford resident, took her
experience with beauty pag-
eants and her desire to help
her community to the next
level and organized the event
The 16-year-old has had
four members of her family


diagnosed with cancer and
two of them have sadly lost
their badly with the deadly
disease.
Wanting to help, she sat
down with her mother Cindy
.White and her pageant direc-
tor and planned the event.
She wanted a fun way to raise
money for Relay for Life.
When she was not in school
or at her job in a tanning salon
she organized the pageant
and raised funds for the win-
ners with a $500 scholarship
for the winner and a $250
scholarship for the runner up.
Brittani said that the win-
ners will be presented their
scholarships at the Relay for
Life and she will join them for
the first lap.
The age group for the com-
petition was 15 to 20 and
Sumter County was just the
first in a series to help raise
funds to fight cancer.
On April 23, there will be a,
pageant in Lake County at the
Leesburg Boat Club and plans
are also in the works for a sim-
ilar fundraising pageant in
Marion County. :
"They all did a great job and


I was actually the timer for
their interviews. They all
impressed," said the current
Miss Ocala Marion County's
Outstanding Teen, a title she
earned recently.
Competing herself for the
past four years and spending
the last two on the Miss
America Association circuit
has moved Brittani to take a
stand and become involved
with her community, her
country and the world.
Brittani will be competing
this July in Miami in the Miss
Florida's Outstanding Teen.
After graduation she plans to
attend Central Florida
Community College to begin
her studies for a degree in
interior design.
"It was a lot of hard work
but it's been fun. Well worth it
"Without the help of my
mom, none of this would have
been possible. I appreciate
her greatly and love her with
all my heart." said Brittani
who went on the say, "A big
thank you to all the people the
worked with me behind the
scenes."

Bow hunting an Osceola wild gobbler


I


t least once a year I try
to get away on a special
* / spring gobbler hunt
right by myself. For the most
part, during the
spring gobbler sea-
son I find myself
hunting with some-
one else while try-
ing to help them get
a trophy long-beard-
ed gobbler. More
often than not, it is a
close friend or a
special invited visi-
tor from way out of
town, or, in some
instances, perhaps JA
a novice hunter who AD
is just getting start-
ed spring gobbler
hunting and needs a bit of
help.
Sometimes it is way on
towards the end of the spring
gobbler season before I finally
get to slip off by myself to get
in a morning's hunt, but this
season, as it turned out, I got
my chance early on during the
middle of the second week of
the season.
I had already been spend-
ing nearly every morning in
the turkey woods for almost
the full month before the
opening day of spring gobbler
season, locating where the
gobblers were using.
When the right opportunity
arose without spooking and
alarming the turkey, on sever-
al occasions I was able to take
a bunch of photographs of
both hens and gobblers as
they were going through their
pre-mating rituals, getting
ready for their annual serious
strutting season.
The folks I had guided hunt-
ing the previous session of the
gobbler season, had all taken
fine gobblers. So between all
my scouting, photographing
and guiding, I pretty much
knew and had a decent idea as
to when the gobblers were
gobbling and a good notion as
to what they were doing for
much of the day.
Anyway, for my own person-
al hunting trip I have a secret
place I have been hunting,
from time to time, in Pasco
County located in some of the
dense swamps near the
Withlacoochee River.
I originally found this spe-
cial spot many years ago dur-
ing the time I was a young
game warden patrolling the
area for the old Game and


Fish Commission. This swamp
I like to hunt is really rough,
for the most part. But once I
wade through the outer barri-
er of cypress knees,
spider webs, and
snagging cat-claw
briers and find my
old trail, the woods
finally open up to a
small, beautiful,
typical, unspoiled
Florida-native
hardwood ham-
mock made up
mostly of ancient
live oak, hickory,
MIE Florida holly and
AMS magnolia trees and
,, interspersed with
just the right
amount of sparse patches of
saw palmetto.
The main reason I like to
hunt this particular piece of
-private property is that the
wild turkey that live there
derive from the original
native black legged Osceola
wild turkey, (M. gallopavo
Osceola) stock.
For untold eons, the unique,
thick, natural swamp vegeta-
tion has provided the needed
protection and forage the
Osceola wild turkey must have
to survive and, subsequently,
the pocket of Osceola wild
turkey living there have been
able to thrive and survive.
This swamp, by the way, is
not for the faint of heart to try
and hunt, and is for sure not a
place for a beginning non-
Florida Cracker woodsman to
mess around with, most espe-
cially on a foggy or misty, rainy
night
It was a long, tiring walk
after I left my pickup in the
darkest part of the night. But
one more time, I found my
way into the secluded ham-
mock I needed to and wanted
to be blinded up and ready to
hunt long before the first
crack of day.
It is during these short, pre-
cious minutes that I enjoy
spring. gobbler hunting the
most
The sounds that take place
deep in the swamp and sur-
rounding woods are in
absolute natural harmony and
most likely would terrify a
non-knowing person who is
the least bit afraid of the over-
powering darkness and could
not instantly recognize the
dozens of ear-piercing night
sounds being produced by a


multitude of rejoicing night
critters. However, to me it is
pure, unadulterated God-cre-
ated natural music and to my
old failing ears, are fleeting
moments of sheer bliss.
Anyway, after checking out
the base of a giant live tree for
the dreaded presence of a
coiled-up-and-ready cotton-
mouth moccasin, I settled
down on the ground behind a
blind consisting of a couple of
palmetto fans stuck in the
ground.
It was at this very moment
that droves of bloodthirsty
mosquitoes brought me back
into reality and I quickly fired
up my trusty "ThermaCELE'
in a valiant effort to keep
them at bay.
Along at the same time I had
gotten the skeeters at bay, the
morning's first barred owl let
loose with a series of loud
hoots and it was quickly
answered by at least four gob-
blers who were roosted near-
by inside the hammock
I quickly answered their
thunderous gobbles with a
couple of very soft tree call
yelps using a well-broke-in
"Primos" True Double mouth
call.
When at least two of the gob-
blers instantly answered my
calls with frantic double gob-
bles, I knew right then and
there I was in for an exciting
morning's hunt.
I had placed a hen turkey
decoy about 20 yards directly
in front of my blind, on a
sandy area that I knew from
past experience that gobblers
like to come and strut. I was


Jamie Adams with an Osceola gobbler taken with bow and arrow.


hunting with a bow and the
placement of the decoy also
served as a range finder, and if
one of the gobblers strutted up
to the decoy, I would know
exactly where to hold the siglht
pin on by bow.
I had about a 20-minute anx-
ious wait before I heard the
gobblers fly down.
And, sure enough, in short
order, two of the gobblers


appeared strutting straight to
my blind. I patiently waited
until the lead boss Osceola
gobbler passed behind a
clump of palmettos and slowly
raised and drew my bow.
My hunt was quickly over
and I reflected on how richly
blessed I was as I took my own
sweet time walking back to my
pickup with the trophy long-
bearded Osceola gobbler


slung over my shoulder. It was
not yet even 6:30 in the morn-
ing and already I had experi-
enced a wonderful day.

for the first time since the uni-
fication of fire services in 2002,
firefighters selected three of
their own to receive the distin-
guished "Sumter County Fire
Employee of the Year 2005."

to the fire service.
Three certificates for
Meritorious Service for life
saving were awarded to
District Chief Ginger Jacobs,
Lt Frank Franklin and Melissa
Strickland. A pediatric patient
entrapped in a vehicle was the
incident that allowed this team
to distinguish themselves.
Two members received spe-
"cial recognition as recipients
of The Fire Chief's Award for
outstanding performance.
Volunteer Assistant Chief Karl
B. Tucker was recognized for
coordination of the SCFR
Equipment Acquisition and
Standardization program,
including new and updated
breathing apparatus, positive-
pressure ventilation fans,
attack nozzles and powered
equipment such as K-12 and
roof ventilation saws for each
fire station. Assistant Chief
Tucker also serves as Training
& Safety Coordinator for
SCFR, developing our first
standardized annual training
calendar countywide.
Volunteer Assistant Chief
George M. Jacobs was recog-
nized for serving as the depart-
ment's first Fleet Maintenance
coordinator, overseeing the
maintenance and repair of
approximately 70 vehicles and
apparatus and their transition
from' municipal or independ-
ent volunteer departments to
part of the Sumter County Fire
Fleet Assistant Chief Jacobs
also serves as the Special
Operations coordinator for
SCFR Both assistant chiefs


also serve as Operations
Battalion Chiefs Incident
Commanders for major emer-
gencies in their respective bat-
talions.
The members of each battal-
ion were asked to nominate
and select a worthy represen-
tative from their own ranks to
receive the "Fire Rescue
Employee of the Year 2005"
for ongoing commitment, dedi-
cation and service to the citi-
zens of Sumter County and the
Fire Service. James F Smith
Jr. was the recipient for
Battalion 1. Christopher
Helbig was the recipient for
Battalion 2, and Battalion 3
chose Tyler Egner. All three
demonstrate the qualities that
we look for in our members
and as Chief Gulbrandsen
reviewed the individual rea-
sons that resulted in this honor,
he emphasized that these
three epitomize "role models"
that all members can be proud
of. Truly the recognition of
one's peers is an outstanding
achievement in itself. In addi-
tion to their award certificates,
Chief Gulbrandsen personally
provided each recipient with a
limited-edition, signed and
numbered print depicting the
history of progress in the fire
service. He felt that this ren-
dering caught the essence of
Sumter County's Fire Service
as we have rapidly progressed
in the last few years.
Guest speakers for the
evening's events included
Sumter County Commissioner
Jim Roberts, who commended
the firefighters and members
of the steering committee who
had the foresight to see the
growing needs in public safety
and the need for a unified
county fire rescue system to
better serve our citizens, to
upgrade equipment and to
offer first-response medical to
all citizens of Sumter County.
Bureau Chief Dave Casey,
Bureau of Fire Standards and
Training, Florida State Fire
College, spoke about fire serv-
ice traditions and he com-

mended Sumter County Fire
Rescue's role of leadership in
improving its firefighter's
training and safety. Chief
Casey also spoke about his 30-
year career and his roots as a


volunteer in the fire service,
emphasizing the importance of
trust and responsibility that
come with the badge, asking
each firefighter to be the best
firefighter or officer that they


can be.

of Service to firefighters and
