Villages water needs may impact development


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The Villages is the top-sell-
ing master-planned communi-
ty in the country for the third
straight year, according to a
survey published in February
by a Maryland real estate
advisory firm, but the devel-
opment could be out of the
running in the future if its
increasing water needs are
not met,
The Villages sold more than


4,000 homes last year accord-
ing to the survey, but that
influx of new residents, cou-
pled with the community's
multiple executive golf cours-
es, manicured lawns and land-
scaping needs, could require
more water resources than
the area can provide.
Currently, the development
is asking the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District (Swiftmud) for five
water use permits in Sumter
County alone, two of which
have been under review for


two years. At the same time,
citizens' organizations have
been addressing the per-
ceived threat of current and
future development to
groundwater and surface
water in that area.
The water use applications,
which are usually approved
within one year, are still
under review because of the
high per capital demands and
the potential impact of water
withdrawals on lakes and wet-
lands, according to John
Parker, Swiftmud water use


regulation manager.
"It is unusual for permit
applications to remain in that
cycle for so long," he said.
"The impact potential is a
major issue."
A main concern is the
potential effect of water with-
drawals on Lake Miona,
Cherry Lake, Black Lake and
unnamed wetlands that are
"relatively shallow and some-
what sensitive to drawdown
effects," according to Parker.
However, The Villages
spokesman Gary Lester said


the permits "aren't anything
new.
'All of the permits are with-
in the framework of what was
approved in 2001" by the
Sumter Board of County
Commissioners, the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs and Swiftmud, he said.
"I think when people see a
water permit, they assume
that it's something new. We
still aren't using all the water
that's been approved for our
development."
If granted, one application


to modify an existing permit,
filed by The Villages Water
Conservation in November,
could allow up to about 26 mil-
lion gallons of water per day
in a peak month for recreation
and aesthetic purposes, such
as golf course irrigation and
landscaping. The modifica-
tion would nearly double the
maximum water use allowed
by the most current revision of
the permit, which was set to
expire March 1, according to

Center Hill


approves plans


for 1,300 homes


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer


A proposed development
along County Road 478 is
closer to becoming a reality,
thanks to a green light cour-
tesy of the City of Center Hill.
In a 4-1 vote, the council
agreed Tuesday to allow a
zoning change from agricul-
tural to a mixed use category,
which would allow up to 2.8
homes per acre, on about 500
acres.
The decision went against
the city's recent zoning board
recommendation to deny the
request.
Developers of Jumper
Creek Estates, formerly
called Chester Hill, plan to
eventually build 1.300 single-'
family homes on the proper-
ty.
The request will be submit-
ted to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs for review and will
come back to the city for final
approval.
Councilman Jimmy Smith,
who voted against the devel-
opment, said he is not in
favor of "flooding that area
with that many units.
"People move out here to
get away from that...I can't
see us compromising our
community for revenue."


Several residents, as well
as two other council mem-
bers, J.R. Smith and Frank
Moore, also voiced concerns
about the zoning density.
"Center Hill will never be
the same, never be close to
the same," said Robert
Farris, who lives adjacent to
the Jumper Creek Estates
property.
He said new voters moving
into those 1,300 new homes
would easily outnumber the
voters currently in Center
Hill.
"They can make it whatev-
er they want," he said. "I
don't think the people of this
town understand what's
going on."
He said hel received a
notice of the developer's
intentions because of its
proximity to his property, but
other residents may not have
been informed. ,
Farris requested the coun-
cil table the issue until resi-
dents could be better
informed.
Though J.R. Smith voted in
favor of the development, he
said he is against the 2.8
units per acre density.
"When it comes back for
adoption, I'm against that,"
he said.

Mayor proposes


clerk suspension

BOB REICHMAN
Editor


Once again, Coleman City
Clerk Clay Godwin has been
suspended from his city-elect-
ed position by Mayor Lonnie
Evans.
Godwin received written
notification on March 23 from
the mayor stating that he has
been suspended and that the
mayor is recommending his
removal from his post for neg-
lect of duties. Godwin
received a similar notice back
in February 2004.
"...It is apparent that you
have neglected your office,"

Congratulations, you haven't won $425,000


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

There's a new scam in town
that could be coming to a mail-
box near you.
Last week, a Bushnell resi-
dent received notification by
mail that he won a substantial
sum of money in the interna-
tional Strike Five Mega Lotto.
The letter of notification also
included a cashier's check for
$3,650 to help pay for the
insurance and processing fee


required to claim his big win-.
nings of $425,000.
There's only one problem,
according to Bushnell Police
Chief Joyce Wells. The
cashier's check enclosed with
the winning notification is
bogus and so is the Strike Five
Mega Lotto.
"It all comes to you looking
very authentic," Well said. "It
is very real looking."
Fortunately, before the
alleged winner took any
action, the letter was submit-
ted to Wells who realized the


notification was nothing more
than a scam, she said.
"They want you to deposit
that check in your bank
account and then it will
bounce," Wells said.
In the meantime, duped vic-
tims end up sending out a
check of their own to cover the
alleged expenses, thinking the
cashier's check is legitimate
and they lose their money, she
said.
"Unfortunately, people
think you can get something
for nothing," Wells said.


Wells said another Bushnell
resident received a similar
scam letter with an enclosed
cashier's check.
"When she tried to deposit
it, she found out that it wasn't
good," she said.
Wells warns residents not to
be fooled by the impressive
looking announcement and to
be wary of similar notifica-
tions.
The Times attempted to
contact representatives of the
Strike Five Mega Lotto from a
telephone number included


in the winning announcement
letter. The call was answered
by an answering machine ask-
ing the caller to leave a mes-
sage.
The letter lists an address in
Seattle, Wash.
According to Kristin
Alexander, public information
officer for Washington State
Attorney General's Office, no
such address exists in
Washington, and Strike Five

Swiftmud records.
Parker compared water use
rates in The Villages to that of
residents in the north Tampa
Bay area.
"The goal is that the per
capital use rate would not
exceed 150 gallons per person
per day."
That number is significantly
larger in The Villages.
"The number I recall, not
including golf courses, is
somewhere between 260 and
270 gallons per person per
day" in The Villages," he said.
Also a -possible threat to
Villages development is
Swiftmud's proposed mini-
mum flows and levels for Lake
Panasoffkee, Lake Miona,
Lake Deaton, Lake
Okahumpka and Big Gant
Lake.
Once set, permitting for
development could be impact-
ed if a lake's water level falls
below the established mini-
mum.

HOMES

continued from Page 1
None of the homes would
be smaller than 1,600 square
feet, according to Hugh
Harling, president of Harling
Locklin & Associates.
Many of the houses would
have three bedrooms, two
bathrooms and two-car


garages and would be located
on lots 120 feet long and 50 or
75 feet wide.
Harling said baseball, soft-
ball and general purpose
fields are being planned and
facilities would be open to
both city and county residents
outside of the Jumper Creek
community.
Although the development
would be deed-restricted, it
would not be age-restricted,
he said.

according to Evans' letter. "First
and foremost you have not been
at City Hall enough to keep cur-
rent with city affairs and to
properly respond to city busi-
ness.
"In short, the Charter pro-
vides that I may suspend you for
neglect of duty and report my
suspension to the City Council
for approval, or I may suspend
you, notify the City Council that
I recommend removal, and pro-
vide you with notice and oppor-
tunity to present a defense."
The suspension became
effective March 23, the same
day that Godwin received the
letter.
The issue is scheduled to be
discussed at a special hearing
during the next Coleman City
Council meeting. The meeting
begins at 7 p.m. on Monday,
April 10.
"It's a little bit like deja vu all
over again," Godwin said last
week "But this time, I made it
expressly clear that I was not
going to resign."
In February 2004, Godwin
was suspended without pay or
benefits, for similar reasons by
the mayor. Initially, Godwin
agreed to resign his post but
later changed his stance based
on medical reasons.


At that time, Godwin received
a letter saying that he had neg-
lected his office and duties
assigned to him by the City
Council.
Godwin, 43, has served as city
clerk since January 2001. He
has been elected three times to
the two-year position.
Although his position is elect-
ed, the City Charter "provides
the mayor with the ability to
suspend with a hearing before
the council," Godwin said.
Prior to his recent suspen-
sion, Godwin said he met with
the mayor in February to dis-
cuss a letter from Godwin's doc-
tor informing the mayor that
Godwin was being treated for a
"major depressive disorder."
Godwin said he's hopeful that
the City Council will not agree
to the suspension.
"There is a possibility that
there won't be enough votes to
remove me," he said. "I hope
I'm correct."
Godwin said the notification
of suspension came unexpect-
edly.
The only indication he had
that the council may have not
been pleased with his perform-
ance was a comment made by
Council Chairwoman Mary
Bigham at the January meeting.
"She said maybe the city
should start paying me by hour
(instead of salary)," Godwin
said. "But it was a passing com-
ment that didn't go anywhere
from there."

Total hits 23,000 for seized X-mart adult videos


BOB REICHMAN
Editort

When the final count was
.completed, the sheriff's office
,had confiscated more than
23,000 videos from X-Mart
Adult Supercenter during a
last week search of the busi-
ness.
All that remains in the store
is about 50 DVDs and seven
,VHS tapes, according to sher-


iff's Capt. Garry Brannen.
The X-mart videos were con-
fiscated because they were not
labeled properly as required
by state law, Brannen said.
Additionally, about 1,000. more
videos were confiscated from
two dealers at the Webster
Flea Market for similar rea-
sons.
The videos are being held
until the court system deter-
mines the next step, Brannen
said.


The videos are being held until the court system
determines the next step, according to sheriffs
Capt.Garry Brannen said.


The tapes taken from the flea
market were seized because
they appeared to be pirated
movies, Brannen said. "We sus-
pect some of them were filmed


in movie theaters with a cam-
era.
"Some of the movies avail-
able for sale are still playing in
theaters," he said.


This week, the sheriff's
office was scheduled to com-
plete their reports and turn
over their findings to the state
attorney's office.
"We're hopeful that the state
attorney's office will charge the
(X-Mart) corporation with law
violations," Brannen said.
"Unless the court orders us
to replace them, we're going to
petition to destroy them," he
said.
The videos were removed


from vendors at the flea market
and X-Mart because proper
rating information was not
being displayed clearly on the
outside of the packages as
required by law.
The search was a result of a
two-month investigation by the
Special Investigations Squad.
Brannen said all video rental
stores in the county were
searched for the same reasons
and no additional violations
were found.

Our VOICE


Just what is County


Commissioner Francis doing?


P probably the best thing to come
out of last week's County
Commission meeting was
Commissioner Jim Robert's motion to
table discussions about how to tem-
porarily replace County
Administrator Bradley Arnold.
Arnold leaves this summer for more
than a year serving with the Navy
Reserve. He's scheduled to leave in
July for 18 months in Afghanistan.
It's not the best situation for the
County Commission since Arnold has
only been onboard for about three
months. But in that time, Arnold has
shown some strong leadership quali-
ties that have served the county well.
Unfortunately, just as those quali-
ties are showing up, he's leaving and
it is right in the middle of considera-
tions for some important issues facing
the county like making final decisions
about new county building construc-
tion and proposals to change to a
charter government.
One of Arnold's missions before he
leaves is to recommend a proposed
interim management plan addressing
how the county will operate in his
absence.
Arnold's plan includes naming
Assistant County .Administratori
Sandra Howell as interim county
administrator and County Service
Director Jim Sparks as interim assis-


tant county administrator.
But Arnold's recommendation was-
n't met with overwhelming support,
from board members last week.
Instead, Commissioner Michael
Francis presented an idea of his own.
He suggested another candidate for
the temporary slot of county adminis-
trator.
Without forewarning, Francis
strongly recommended a "volunteer
of extraordinary qualifications" to
take over until Arnold returns.
His announcement was not
received well by other commission-
ers, probably because the board had
not discussed actively seeking
replacements.
He made a hard push to have
Villages resident Don V Hahnfeldt
selected for the post.
We're wondering why Francis
would launch into such a recommen-
dation before the board even decides
if it wants someone other than Howell
to step into the leadership role.
This recommendation does not play
out well. Chandler, Roberts, Hoffman
and Mask may also have great candi-
dates for the slot but last week's meet-
ing certainly wasn't the right forum
for this announcement.
Francis' announcement was prema-
ture.

Never ceases
to amaze me
It never ceases to amaze me, the
audacity of people that is. The
more important they perceive
themselves to be, the more audaci-
ty they exhibit
Take for instance the new dilem-
ma the County finds itself in with
the new County Administrator
being called to active duty just
months after taking over the man-
agement position from Mr. Dew.
This was a possibility that was
accepted by the Board of County
Commissioners when Mr. Arnold
was hired.
Now the dilemma is who should
replace Mr. Arnold until he returns
from serving his country? Youf
would think this should not be the
mind-boggling, contentious debate
it turned into at the County
Commission meeting Tuesday
night. You see, the County already
employs a highly qualified, capable
and experienced Assistant County
Administrator.
However. evei though Mr. A.rnold
personally recommended the
County would be in good hands
with the Assistant Administrator
stepping in to bridge the gap, some
County Commissioners act as
though the job vacancy has already
been advertised and are taking on


the initiative of accepting applica-
tions or resumes from interested
parties.
Now with all things considered,
things like your tax dollar that has
already been spent searching for a
new County. Administrator; that
there is already a qualified person
available to step into the position
with a minimum of disruption; and
the cost effectiveness of promoting'
from within,. (especially since this
is a temporary position), a person
must ask why the County is being
asked, almost demanded, to hand
this (temporary) position over to an
outsider.
Could it be that because the
Assistant Administrator, with well
over 20 years of service to the
County in that position, does not
have a college diploma? Or maybe
because she doesn't live in The
Villages, or worse yet, because she
is a she?
The two commissioners from
"'The Villages" seem to believe it is
their duty to, advance the Village
agenda no matter the cost to the
rest of the County. The audacity
shown at Tuesday's County
Commission meeting by these two
Commissioners is truly overbear-
ing
Just because a person does not
have a piece of paper telling the


rest of the world how smart theyA
are, does not mean they are unedu-
cated. And not everyone chooses to
live in a sardine can and be bound
by unreasonable rules, some og
which are not disclosed till afteb
the closing.
People -still know right from
wrong and good from bad, and try-
ing to demean the qualifications,
loyalty and ability to do the job is
wrong not only for the moral of theo
Assistant and the rest of the staff,
but for the County as a whole.

Lane Purcell Hospice House construction in ne


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Construction of the
planned Lane Purcell
Hospice House in
Sumterville could be com-
pleted by the end of this year,
according to Pat Lehotsky,
chief executive officer of


Hospice of Lake and Sumter.
Hospice of Lake and
Sumter is a not-f6r-profit
organization that provides
end-of-life medical care in
homes, assisted living facili-
ties and Hospice residential
environments.
The house is slated for con-
struction on a 2-acre site
near Langley Medical Center


off U.S. Highway 301.
Original plans for the Lane
Purcell Hospice House fea-
tured eight bedrooms for
patients unable to remain in
their own homes.
Hospice officials estimated
the total cost of construction
to be around $2.5 million and
by the end of last year,
around $1 million had been


raised to fund the new build-
ing.
Lehotsky said final con-
struction plans should be
completed by the end of May.
The total cost of the build-
ing based on original plans
was too high and "some value
engineering" was done,
Lehotsky said.
She expects to have final


'construction plans by the end
of May. ,
The facility is being named
for Lane Purcell, a well-
known community leader
who died in a vehicle acci-
dent in early 2005.
He was the owner, of
Purcell Funeral Home in
Bushnell.
A dedication ceremony at


Wildwood in 1985 from Alliance,
Ohio. He was a pest control
owner/operator. He is survived
by his fiancee, Brenda Lindsay
of Wildwood; children, Eric
Long of Wildwood, Denise Glaus
of Brewster, Ohio, Vickie
Lancaster of Canton, Ohio, and
Jeff Long of Lake Panasoffkee;.
brothers, Ronald of Canton,
Ohio, and Leeroy Long o0
Belpre, Ohio; nine grandchil-
dren and two great-grandsons.,
He was preceded in death by his
sister, Peg Mayle, and grandson,
Joshua Long. Funeral services
were conducted on Friday,
March 31, 2006, at Banks/Page-
Theus Chapel with Pastor Bobby,
Williams officiating. Private bur-
ial followed. Banks/Page-Theus
Funeral Home and Cremation

"How do I decide which funeral
home to call when the time comes?"


Aside from the requirement that all funeral homes be
licensed by the state, some basic questions you might ask
when selecting a funeral home include: Are they flexible
enough to handle your specific needs? Are decisions made
locally or from an out-of-town corporate office? Are they
full service? Do they sub-contract services such as
cremation or do they provide these options on-site?
Everyone has different priorities and questions about
funeral pre-planning. We invite your questions and we
will respect your priorities. Please call us for a no cost, no
obligation, no pressure appointment to get the facts on
how you can benefit from funeral pre-planning.

Just leafing through a bookTES



Just leafimg through a book


R recently, I picked up ashamed isn't a half-bad
the book "You're Late place to be, because it's
Again, Lord!" at the where the Father loves us
airport in Charlotte, N.C. and reminds us that we are


The subtitle is:
"The Impatient
Woman's Guide to
God's Timing.",
I bought it as I
waited for my
flight after seeing
my daughter
Leafing through
it, I stopped at the
page that said
"God's Grace, My
Ego." Since grace
is my "thing," I
was curious and
kept reading.
The author


NAN
KENI


wrote about a move she
made with her husband
when he took a job in anoth-
er city They bought a new
house before selling the old
one and she had expected
the old house to sell right
away, that they would live
happily ever after, accord-
ing to her plan, "because I
wanted it to," she wrote. "It
seemed logical enough, not
a stretch for God's power, so
why would he object?"
She thought the things she
wanted would be fairly
unimportant to God, and
perhaps he would supply
them in part to "end (her)
constant nagging." Then he
could "move on to more
important matters."
But God didn't give her
everything she wanted right
when she wanted it. With
two house payments, their
lives and their patience
were stretched and
strained. Through it all, she
heard God say, "Don't worry.
It'll be all right"
She concluded, "What I
was waiting for wasn't the
sale of the house or more
money. It was reassurance
that God was in control of
my troubled world."
As I write this, especially
after reading that book, I am
feeling deeply ashamed
before God, although, as my
uncle-dad often tells me,


his.
When I left
Charlotte, my
daughter still had-
n't started working
"for real." For
three weeks she
had been in train-
ing at a local
Cheesecake
Factory restau-
rant. She had
spent a lot of her
NCY money on work
IEDY clothes and her
MON"""O savings had
almost run out;
she needed to start working
"for real." The only thing
holding her back was pass-
ing her final "cheesecake
exam." If you don't pass, you
don't get hired "for real."
Although Laura studied
harder than I had ever seen
her study for any test in
school, she worried that she
would freeze. She asked me
to pray, and I did, but I
began to doubt that God
would really answer my
prayer.
Because this job was
something I wanted for my
kid, I thought God would
keep it from her. I realized I
viewed God as a
Disappointer of Dreams,
that he dangles something I
want in front of me, and
then just when I think he's
about to give it to me and it's
within my reach, he yanks it
away.
Even now, my deep dis-
trust in God's willingness to
take care of my daughter
still grieves me. Just to read
these words as I write them,
I'm struck by the corrupt-
ness of my heart to think I
am somehow kinder than
the One who sent his Son to
die for me.
When I left Charlotte, my
daughter still hadn't taken
her final exam, and I had a
hard time leaving.
I was plagued with "what


ifs."
What if she didn't pass? I
vaguely knew that would
mean God had something
better for her. However, at
the time, as her mother who
often thinks she knows
what's best, I wanted what I
wanted when I wanted it,
and fretted and worried all
the way home.
"Dear God, pleeeeeeese
help her pass her cheese-
cake test!" I pleaded, even
though I didn't expect him
to.
Even though I kept hear-
ing the words of Jesus to his
disciples, "If you then, being
evil, know how to give good
gifts to your children, how
much more will your Father
who is in heaven give what
is good ... ," I didn't think he
would give this good gift.
All week, my heart was
troubled.
Last Thursday, Laura
called. Not only had she
passed her test, but she got
100 percent.
I wept, thoroughly
ashamed for behaving like a
spoiled toddler throwing a
tantrum.
Ashamed that I had decid-
ed ahead of time and with-
out reason that God was
cruel and arbitrary.
That's when and where,
just like my uncle-dad had
said, the Father met me,
loved me and reminded me
that, despite my spoiled-tod-
dler ratings and misplaced
trust in my own goodness,
his Father-heart will always
welcome sinners like me
home.

Ooops! We Goofed!
We made a mistake on our Suffragettes page.
The tea party took place on July 9, 1848 in the
village of Waterloo in Seneca County. That's one
hundred and fifty-eight years ago. Prior to the
tea party, in April of 1848, New York State passed
its first married woman's property act.
We apologize for the error and would like to
thank our knowledgeable readers in Seneca
County for supplying the correct information.

Students meet goal, head to beach


On March 24, students at
Bushnell Elementary School
took part in Hawaiian Beach
Day to celebrate 40,000
Accelerated Reader points.
Along with being urged to
dress in Hawaiian attire and
getting a movie time in class,
the administration cooked
for faculty and students.
.Book circulation has
increased in the library dra-
matically over the last three
years, according to teacher
Kathy Hairston, one of the
coordinators.
She said that during the
2003-04 school year, their
checkout reached 54,000. It
increased to 88,203 the fol-
lowing year and this year it's
already at 84,000 with two
months remaining in the
year.
They're averaging approxi-
mately 10,000 books a month
being checked out, so they
expect to. far exceed last
year's book circulation.
For the most part, students
are achieving above 80 per-
cent accuracy on their AR
tests.'
Hairston and others
believe it's a great indication
that student comprehension
is consistently improving.


Darria Randall, Joseph Cilenti, Deanna Mercado are shown
with teacher Gail Tompkins during Hawaiian Day at Bushnell
Elementary School. The students were celebrating high scor-

Remembering Samantha with love


Thirteen and one half
years ago we found in a
cardboard box, an aban-
doned six week old puppy
She was weak and covered
with mange. We took her to
the veterinarian to try to save
her. With meds in
hand, we took her ."
home but were
told not to get our
hopes up, because
she may not make
it through the
night. We named
the puppy
Samantha, in
memory of our .
dog Samson who
we had to put
down that morn- LINI
ing. GRA
Ronnie and I
were so heartbro-
ken over losing Samson that
December morning, but the
sick little puppy kept us busy
caring for her. Samantha had
to be isolated for three
months until she was no
longer contagious.


D,


During that time, we han-
dled her with protective
gloves, and washed and
bleached our clothes and
shoes constantly
She slowly gained her
strength and started putting
on weight
-""" The first few
months of a puppy's
life are the social
formative months,
but unfortunately
Samantha had to be
kept isolated.
Consequently, she
grew up shy and
._ I timid with strangers,
but remained loving
and faithful to her
)A family
=ES One of Samantha's
- greatest joys was
finding a stick in the
front yard and running with it
while I played chase with her.
Then she would throw her-
self on the ground and roll
upside down kicking her legs
in the air while I gave her a
tummy rub. I could just imag-

ine hearing her laughing with
delight
Samantha's nickname was
Water Dog, because she loved
to dive in the water and go
swimming.
My mom and I would take
her to our property on the
coast each weekend where
she would spend the whole
day swimming and diving for
her tennis ball in the canal.
Oh how she would dance
with excitement when she
knew we were taking her
swimming.
Samantha was a good girl
and an excellent dog. She
never gave us a minute of
trouble. She was so eager to
please that we only had to tell
her something once, and from
then on, she knew what was
expected of her.
As the years passed,
Samantha's strong body start-
ed to age. Arthritis set in first
in her front leg then later in
the rest of her legs.
Medication kept her comfort-
able and she continued to


play, but not as often any-
more. Where she once
enjoyed chasing the squir-
rels, she now enjoyed sitting
in the front yard watching
them. She still enjoyed a good
stick now and then, and she
loved carrying around a
stuffed toy.
But last week, my beautiful
girl could no longer stand.
The medication no longer
eased her pain.
Her legs had grown weak,
and her front leg, the first one
that became arthritic years
ago, she couldn't even bear
any weight on it any more.
That night we held our girl
and told her how much we
loved her and what a good
girl she had always been
while she was humanely
euthanized. How do we get
past this heartbreak?
As the days pass, we
remember the joyful life she
shared with us, and through
our tears, we begin to smile,
remembering our beautiful
Samantha.

SUMTER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL 6, 2006, PAGE 17



Hamilton retires after 36 years in county office


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Thirty six years ago Frank
Hamilton was working at the
A&P Supermarket in
Bushnell. That's when then
Sumter County Tax Collector
Curtis Beville offered him a
job as a clerk in the tax office.
That was 1970.
Back then, automobile tags
were numbered, Sumter
County was number 44 and
Hamilton enjoyed his job.
He still does or did, until
he retired earlier this month.
Hamilton plans to spend
some time working in the yard
and traveling through some
historic places in the nation.
"I liked meeting people and
I liked challenges." he said of
working tor the county.:
The challenges came in
finding out what options were
available for helping cus-
tomers get problems resolved.
During his time in the
office, Hamilton worked with
three different clerks -
Beville, who died in office,
then Beville's wife Doris. He
retired as a clerk for current
tax collector Tom Swain.
When Hamilton started the
tax office was a small office in
the front of the historic court-
house building they handled
real estate, occupation licens-
es and tags, he said.
In the late '70s the system
changed from numeric to
alpha-numeric, providing
more combinations for tag
identification.
"When I started we would
do a tag and title reported,
once a week, now we do daily
reports," he said of the
growth, noting that the popu-


nation then was only around
11,000.
He's been through technol-
ogy changes, "When I.started
we did everything manually."
Back then they typed the
same information on six dif-
ferent forms. These days, with
computers, they have two
forms, at most, to put together.
"We're online so it's updat-
ing the information when we
key it."
"In the old days it took six to.
eight weeks to issue a title by
mail." now it can be done in a
week or less.
They cani even issue what's
called a ."fast title" in the
office.
He also expressed his con-
tinuing gratitude to local resi-
dent and realtor Billy Merritt.
Hamilton said that during
his early years, it was Merritt
who really took time to
explain real estate to him. ,
"I was as green as a gourd,"
Hamilton said.
Born and raised in
Bushnell, he graduated South
Sumter High School in 1964.
He spent some time as a
supervisor, but enjoyed his
job as a clerk and chose to go
back to it.
He went for the job with
benefits and "The rest, as they
say, is history."
There are some other things
that he's experienced over the
years too.
"I remember one time there
was a prisoner that tried to
escape," he said, noting that
the man was on the second
floor.
When the man tried to flee,
the constable shot him.
"He fell at our door,"
Hamilton said, explaining
that everyone in the office


stayed put to see if there
would be anymore shooting.
He said there was a retired
United States Army nurse in
the office at the time, so she
went out and bandaged up his
wound until additional help
arrived.
As for his retirement, since
he stopped working on March
24, "I have stopped I've been
in the yard," he said, adding
that he goes out early in the
morning, when it's still cool
and comes in around 10 a.m.
He loves to read history,
especially Florida history, but
also plans to travel to some
historic sites around the
nation. That includes Virginia
and North Carolina and
Charleston, S.C.
. In Virginia, he wants to visit
Poplar Forest another home
of Thomas Jefferson's, that's
currently under restoration.
He said there's a website on
the location and he also has
an interest in architecture.
He'd like to go back to New
Orleans too, but said he fig-
ures he'll have to wait a while
for that.
He's been there twice
already, but has yet to ride the
streetcar.
"It seems like my time was
always limited."
With a laugh, he said that
will be his chance to sample
the life in the Big Easy the
food and culture and history.
He wants to check out
North Georgia,' the former
home of a United States mint.
It's a place where people can
still pan for gold and some-
thing he may give a try
"It's closer than California,"
he said with a laugh.
As for his love of history, he
said,. "Hiktory determines

Sherry McCook. Hamilton retired earlier this month after 36 years with the county agency.


who we are today and what
we may be tomorrow.
Hopefully we'll learn from
history and not repeat the
same mistakes."
Co-workers and county
employees dropped by for a
retirement party last week
and one of his former co-
workers called from her cur-
rent home in Alabama.
Nadine Pierce worked with


Hamilton for 30 years.
Along with being born local-
ly, which he said is rare,
Hamilton \\as born in what's
now a funeral home.
Purcell's, in Bushnell, used
to be a small community hos-
pital.
"I guess I'll go out the same
way I came in," he said \ ith a
laugh.
Hamilton has one older


brother, Jimmy, who lives in
Georgia. He's the son of Sallie
and the late Roscoe Hamilton.
His dad worked for the
Florida game commission
and passed away in 1978.
And just what advice does a
longtime tag employee have to
offer?
-M Alw ays carry your registra-
tion, proof of insurance and
your driver's license," he said.


Saying 'goodbye' to Sam


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Seeing Sam and Sadie in
the back of the white plumb-
ing truck has been a pretty
common, sight in downtown
Bushnell.; Sam, the golden
retriever, and his mixed breed
buddy Sadie were well man-
nered and more than happy to
sit waiting tor their master,
Steve Davis. as he conducted
business or stopped at a near-
by restaurant for a meal.
But this week. Davis is
mourning and Sadie's riding
alone Sam died on Tuesday.
He had to be put to sleep
after doctors discovered a
tumor that was paralyzing his
right leg.
"He \ as the most intelligent
dog I've ever owned," said
Davis of Sam.
"He could do anything. The
only thing he couldn't do was
talk"
But Davis said even that
was possible with him that
while Sam couldn't speak in
human language, he could
certainly communicate with
his master.
Davis got emotional a cou-
ple of times as he talked about
Sam,
"It's hard to work without
him."
As a matter of fact, Davis
missed the first day after he
had to put Sam to sleep.
As for his attachment, he
said it's hard for some people
to understand how attached a
person can get their pet, but
it's possible Sam w as always
with him.
Several years ago, Davis
had to put down Sam's dad,
Chaucer, but he was 16. Sam
was only eight.
The golden retriever start-
ed limping about six months
ago and Davis thought he had
stepped on a spurM so he didn't
pay niuch attention. When the
limp continued, he took him
to the vet, but they couldn't
find anything, so they suggest-
ed Davis take him for further
testing. Davis took him to the
University of Florida where
they discovered a tumor in his
pelvis area. The mass was cut-
ting off all the nerves, paralyz-
ing his right leg.


Sam is shown here in the back of Davis's plumbing truck. It was
a common sight to people around Bushnell.


"He wasn't suffering," Davis
said, but when he started to
suffer, Davis knew it was time
to put him down.
"I can't stand to see my dogs
suffer," he said.
"It was terrible. I couldn't
work for a day or two."
-'He was like an employee -
lie %was like my kid."
"He loved the water. He
loved to swim. He loved to
ride in the back of my truck"
And while he was in the
truck, "He had this phobia
about bushes," Davis said,
explaining that Sam didn't
want any branch to get to
close to the truck if one did,
he would bite it off.
"The back of my truck
would be full of brush," Davis
said.
A couple of times he went
after brush that outsized him
and snatched him off the back
Davis said Sam would just
clamber up and run alongside
the truck, waiting to get back
on.:
"You could tell: him to do
anything and he'd go do it and
that was it."
Davis said he was well
behaved in stores and in the
truck
Davis said he wanted to do
something special for Sam, so
he planned to put an obituary
in the paper to get the word
out. He wanted people to


know, so they wouldn't ask
him.
Davis said Sam was his con-
stant companion, riding on
the truck for nearly eight
years..
Davis considered him a best
friend he was there as Davis
hunted or fished and there to
listen, as Davis pointed out,
when no one else would.

Davis also wrote this obitu-
ary for his dog.
,Samson (Sam) Davis, the
faithful partner and constant
companion of Steve Davis,
was put to rest.
Sam rode on my plumbing
truck for almost eight years.
He also accompanied me on
many hunting and fishing
excursions and almost every-
where I went.
Things won't be the same
without Sam riding with me
on my truck
He was my best friend and
companion and I will miss
.him a lot.
It's hard to understand how
an old golden retriever can
mean so much to a person, but
he did.
He was there to listen when
no one else would.
I don't think he can ever be
replaced, but his memory will
live with me always.
Rest in peace, my old gold-
en dog.

Ourkey calls, go together ADAMS


Gobbler season and turkey calls, go together and gaining popularity


If I had to make a calculat-
ed guess, I would probably
surmise that when it came
to wild game-call
popularity, it would -
be that, far and
away, more wild
turkey calls are
being produced
and sold each year -
than all of the other i
game calls put
together. That is, of
course, if you did
not count duck
calls.
Spring gobbler JA
hunting has only AD
reached the enor-
mous and fast-
growing popularity being
enjoyed by today's modern
hunters within the last 25
years. Before that time actual-
ly, avid spring gobbler hunters
were few and far between.
For my part, it seems like it
was only yesterday that when
spring gobbler season rolled
around each year, I had the
woods I hunted in here in cen-
tral Florida almost entirely to
myself.
The phenomenon of
hunters getting addicted to
spring gobbler hunting has
sure made it a lot more diffi-
cult to find a good public hunt-
ing area to hunt, whereas the
resident mature gobblers
have not been pressured and
hunted hard.
Subsequently, on many of
our public wildlife manage-
ment areas that are open to
spring gobbler hunting, the
resident long-bearded gob-
blers have been sought after
hard by a legion of gobbler
hunters using every hunting


km


method imaginable.
These gobbler hunters use a
multitude of different types of
turkey calls while
Hopefully trying to
lure a trophy long
beard into shooting
range. And, folks,
for the most part,
<'. the serious gobbler
hunters who have
done their pre-sea-
son homework and
scouting are very
successful in their
attempts.
IIE With all of the
MS many proficient
hunters in hot pur-
suit of the highly
vocal long-bearded gobblers,
it would seem to be a miracle
that any long-bearded gob-
blers could somehow manage
to survive at all.
However, many of the old
mature gobblers quickly learn
the hunter's methods and
tricks and they are very capa-
ble of eluding the very best of
spring gobbler hunters. This
fact is well documented and
evidenced, as with each new
spring there are plenty of
large, healthy populations of
wild turkey all over the state
and more and more trophy
long-bearded gobblers are
killed each season. The one
thing that hurts our wild
turkey populations the worst
is the loss of good native habi-
tat And, my friends, you just
have to look to the north end
of Sumter County to verify this
escalating and tragic fact of
native land destruction and
abuse.
Just this past weekend, I
drove along a county road in


the north end of Sumter
County where I know for a fact
there used to be acres and
acres of native woods, and a
pristine native prairie wet-
lands marsh. A horrible sight
is taking place there as I write
this article, as droves of bull-
dozers are at work destroying
what was wildlife habitat
around a beautiful wetlands
marsh and only a month ago
was the home for all type of
native wildlife which had
thrived there for uncountable
thousands of years.
Oh well, with the all-mighty
dollar doing the slick talking
and with the help and bless-
ings of weak-kneed, gutless
political leadership we have
in way too many places
around our state, my good
friends I am afraid it ain't
gonna get no better no time
soon.
Anyhow, back to turkey
hunting. There are all kinds of
great custom-made turkey
calls on the market and not
only are most of them very
efficient in calling in a long-
bearded gobbler, but many of
them are fine works of art.
Several of the country's top-
rated turkey call makers live
in the state of Florida, and in
Sumter County there are two
custom call makers that are
producing some fine turkey
calls. Ray Tompkins and Tim
Clayton, both of Sumterville,
produce a variety of very fine
turkey calls.
However, the grandmaster
craftsman of all custom-made
turkey calls is Lamar
Williams, considered without
question by the experts to be
the very best call maker in the


world. He lives in Starke, and
if you can somehow get your
hands on one of his box calls,
you had best put it in a safe
deposit box. The value of any
of his calls probably doubles
the same day you get your
hands on it, especially if it
happens to be one of his rare
boat-paddle models that fetch
anywhere from $500 to $1,000
at collectors auctions.
Right behind Lamar is
another outstanding Florida
call maker Will Martz of
Sebring, whose custom-made
box calls are in the same class
as a Lamar William turkey
call. Then, too, I have to add
with a little special pride that
my eldest son Jimmy Adams of
Lake Wales, a law enforce-
ment officer with the Fish and
Game Commission, is turning
out a small limited number of
custom box calls that are as
finely hand tuned to create as
authentic and pure wild
turkey sounds as I have ever
heard.
One other custom call
maker that makes an out-
standing custom box call is
Scott Fletcher of Melbourne. I
recently spent an evening
with Scott and country music
artist as well as good wild
turkey hunter John Anderson,
who personally signed a few
of Scott's custom box calls that
are going to be sold to a lucky
few collectors on a very limit-
ed basis.
John Anderson, by the way,
is the country music singer
that recorded the song
"Seminole Wind," which is
one of my all-time favorite
country songs about our great
state of Florida and the unde-

feated Seminole Indians.
I have read someplace that
the early American Indians
used a wing bone that had
been hollowed out and, by
sucking on one end, could
closely imitate wild turkey
sounds. Supposedly, accord-
ing to some historians, this is
thought to be the first
attempts to create a workable
and efficient wild turkey call.
Since that time, there have
been literally thousands of
attempts to make calls that
could and would lure in a wild
turkey, and some of the very
finest are made by the crafts-
men I mentioned living here


in the state of Florida, who
are themselves serious wild
turkey hunters and know what
a real wild turkey is supposed
to sound like.
Buying a handmade custom
wild turkey call from a well-
known call maker is going to
be a major investment, as the
best calls are very time con-
suming to make, but the best
ones start to appreciate in
value the day they are pur-
chased.
They are expensive, as a
rule, but any fine work of art is
well worth the investment and
they will last several lifetimes
as heirlooms.

refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Long-term storage is best
done in the freezer for up to 1
year. Unopened vacuum
packed cans or packages of
beans or ground coffee can be
stored in the pantry for up to 1
year. For the best tasting cof-
fee, always start with a clean
coffee maker that has been
washed with soapy hot water,
and brew coffee with fresh
cold water.
Tea Making Tips: you can
store tea bags or loose tea at
room temperature in an air-
tight container for up to 2
years. Be sure to keep each
kind or flavor of tea in sepa-
rate storage containers. To
make the perfect cup of tea,
pour boiling water over one
tea bag or a tea infuser con-
taining 1 teaspoon of loose
tea. Allow to steep for only 3-5
minutes to assure quality fla-
vor; if you desire a stronger
tea steep longer but tea may
have a bitter taste the longer
it is steeped. Remove the bag
or infuser after steeping.
Quick iced tea can be made by
pouring 4 cups boiling water
over eight tea bags in a heat
resistant container. Cover and
steep 3-5 minutes. Remove


Easy Cutting for
- Cinnamon Rolls: if
you find it difficult
to slice cinnamon
rolls dough with a
knife, try a piece of
dental floss or
heavy duty thread.
Place the thread
under the rolled
dough, 1 inch from
the end, bring the
sides of the thread
THA up around the
DOX dough and cross it
eeN over the top, cutting
through the dough
and filling. Repeat every inch.
Cookie Making Tips: for
best results, use regular short-
ening, butter or margarine
(containing at least 80% oil) in
cookie recipes. Whipped, tub,
soft, liquid or reduced fat
products contain air and
water and will produce flat,
tough, or under browned
cookies.
Measure all ingredients
accurately. Use shiny alu-
minum baking sheets without
sides for golden brown cook-
ies. Turn on your oven to the
required temperature 10-15
minutes before baking. If a
.recipe directs you to grease
the baking sheets, use short-
ening for best results. For
even baking, make cookies
the same size and thickness.
Always place cookie dough
two to three inches apart,
unless otherwise directed, on
cool baking sheets. Leave at
least two inches around the
baking sheet and the oven
walls for good heat circula-
tion. For best results, bake
only one sheet of cookies at a
time. Unless otherwise direct-
ed, let cookies cool for one
minute on the baking sheet
before removing to a wire

Caring for summer gardens


Summer! It is the best of
t iimes: it is the worst of times.
The heat, humidity and
moisture help the lawn and
flowers grow, but that combi-'
nation also encourages weeds,
fungus and disease, insects
and nematodes, all of which
attack our landscapes.
In our summer climate, trop-
ical plants grown in containers
make wonderful focal points.
They often will not get through
the winter outdoors, but can be
treated like an annual or cut
back and stored in the garage
or some other protected area
during freeze periods.
Some of the plants in this
category include croton, hibis-
cus, ixora and bougainvillea.
Possible companions to these
to fill in and trail over the edge
of a large pot are periwinkle,
petunias, verbena and aspara-
gus fern. Bushy focal plants
will create enough shade that
even ivy, geraniums and impa-
tiens do well under them.
Be creative; use your imagi-
nation and experiment. I am
sure you will be pleased with

the results.
There is still plenty of time
to add some color to your gar-
den. A few annuals that do well
are periwinkle, marigold,
salvia, celosia, zinnias,
Mexican sunflower and portu-
laca.
To help keep your crape
myrtles blooming, remove the
faded flower heads. This
encourages growth and new
flowers.
Do not prune azaleas, poin-
settias, gardenias or other


spring flowering plants after
August. Such action can inter-
fere with the formation of new
flower buds that are forming.

rack. Cool completely before
storing.
Tips for Bread Machine
Users: read your bread
machine owner's manual
carefully. Measure ingredi-
ents precisely with all the
appropriate measuring tools
before adding to your
machine. Then, add in the
order your manufacturer rec-
ommends. For best results,
bread flour should be used in
all bread machine recipes.
Although active yeast can be
used in bread machines,
bread machines yeast is rec-
ommended. Its finer granula-
tion is dispersed better dur-
ing mixing and kneading.
Recipes containing eggs, milk,
sour cream, cottage cheese
and other dairy products
should be baked immediately
and not placed on a "time
bake" cycle. Listen to your
bread machine as it's knead-
ing the dough. If the machine
sounds labored, the dough
might be too dry. After 5 min-
utes of mixing, take a look at
it. It should be forming a
smooth, satiny ball. If the
dough looks dry or cracked,
add 1 to 2 tablespoons of
water If dough is flat and wet
looking, add 1 to 2 table-
spoons of flour.
Tips For Using Blenders
and Food Processors: use a
blender or food processor to
make salad dressings and
sauces and to puree soups. A
food processor is best to mix
and puree very thick mixtures
such as cheese spreads, sand-
wich fillings, and pesto
sauces.
Don't use a blender or food
processor to mix cakes from
scratch, whip cream or beat
egg whites. For more nutri-
tion information contact the
University of Florida, IFAS,
Sumter County Extension
Office at 352-793-2728.
