Panasoffkee development approved


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

The Lake Panasoffkee com-
munity might be about to have
one of the largest growth
spurts it has seen in years.
Sumter County
Commissioners on Tuesday
approved a zoning change that
will allow a 206-home devel-
opment at the intersection of
County Roads 470 and 479.
The board approved chang-


ing the existing A5 and R1
designations to an RPUD des-
ignation a residential
planned unit development. It
involves a 150-acre tract.
The property was formerly
the S.E. Montgomery ranch.
Some years ago, a small
airstrip occupied a portion of
the property adjacent to a
small mobile home subdivi-
sion. The tract is also some-
what across C.R. 459 from the
Lake Panasoffkee
Recreational Park and the

cent to a small mobile home subdivision.


Lake Panasoffkee Library
County documents listed
Ronnie Hamilton, ETAL, as
the applicant, with Down to
Earth Lawn Care II, Inc., list-


ed as representative.
Hamilton is a long-time
Bushnell area resident. Down
to Earth is Mount Dora-based
corporation.


The change is not an
increase in overall density,
Development Services
Director Robbie Rogers told
the board. The number of
dwellings for the entire tract
would be equal to the total
number allowed under the
existing 40 acres of agricultur-
al property and 109 acres of
the low-density residential
designation.
But, that was not a satisfac-
tory situation to a number of
the residents who crowded


into the commission meeting
room for the zoning hearing.
And, neither was it accept-
able to Commissioner Jim
Roberts who cast the one dis-
senting vote against approval
of the change.
Roberts insisted that the
western part of the tract the
40 acres that were zoned agri-
cultural should have no more
than eight homes.

Board: Director's tie to Villages not a conflict


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Members of the
Withlacoochee Regional
Water Supply Authority
(WRWSA) apparently found
no conflict of interest between
its executive director's profes-
sional ties with The Villages
and his work on the board.
Jack Sullivan, who has
served as the WRWSA's execu-
tive director for 23 years, also


provides services as a land
use consultant. His list of
clients includes The Villages,
which is currently applying to
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District
(SWFWMD) for several sub-
stantial water use permits in
Sumter County.
The WRWSA's membership
includes Sumter, Citrus and
Hernando counties and the
City of Ocala, the purpose of
which is to evaluate the
potable water needs of the


Withlacoochee region, pre-
pare plans and help the local
governments in the region
implement their long-range
water supply plans, according
to the organization's Web site.
The question of an appear-
ance of a conflict of Sullivan's
professional interests was
recently raised by Center Hill
resident Louise Racine and
discussed at the board's regu-
lar meeting April 19.
Sullivan initiated the dis-
cussion, saying he was "some-


what floored" by Racine's
view.
"I don't think that I have an
ethics problem with this and I
certainly don't think I have a
conflict of interest"
He said the WRWSA does
not have a regulatory role in
water use issues.
"You hired me with the
understanding that I would do
these kinds of projects," he
told the board.
WRWSA Attorney Larry
Haag advised members he


didn't perceive any conflict
with Sullivan's work for The
Villages and the board.
"I do not see a conflict of
interest there...we all have
other jobs and other clients,"
he said.
Racine said the issue came
to light when she read a letter
from Sullivan to David Moore,
SWFWMD executive director,
expressing concern for

County Commission considers charter government


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

Sumter County commission-
ers decided in a special meet-
ing Monday to consider some
proposals for changing the
county to a "charter" govern-
ment operation.
While not every commis-
sioner was expressing desires
to start a process toward
reforming the county organi-
zation, there was a general
consensus to have county staff
prepare some sample charter
proposals for the board to con-
sider in the near future.
: Commission Chairman Joey
Chandler wanted it to be next


month, but no specific date
was scheduled.
In the meantime, County
Administrator Bradley Arnold
is to prepare the sample pro-
posals, then circulate them
among the county's constitu-
tional officers and municipal
officials to get their comments
on the proposals.
Before deciding on that pre-
liminary step, Assistant
County Administrator Sandra
Howell presented an
overview on charter counties.
These are some of the
points of her presentation:
Charter governments are
authorized by revisions to the
state constitution in 1968.
M Charters establish powers


County Administrator Bradley Arnold is to pre-
pare the.sample proposals, then circulate them
among the county's constitutional officers and
municipal officials.


of local self-government pro-
vided that they are not incon-
sistent with general or special
laws.
Charters provide clarifi-
cation regarding conflicts
between ordinances of the
county and a municipality and
which one would prevail.
Charters can provide
power to amend the duties of


county offices (such as sheriff,
supervisor of elections and
property appraiser) described
in the state constitution.
Her report noted that 19 of
Florida's 67 counties have
charter governments and that
Miami/Dade is the only county
that no longer elects constitu-
tional officers.
According to Howell's


report, charters can give coun-
ties more accountability with
efficient and effective service
delivery. It would also allow
for consolidation of opera-
tions such as fleet services,
information technology, cen-
tral purchasing, human
resources and finance.
Along with those possible
features, a charter could allow
for appointed county officers
to perform the duties of the
currently elected, constitu-
tional officers.
The changes could allow for
greater control over budget
and policies by the county
commission.
The presentation also cited
a possible "realignment" of


the relationship between the
legislative and administrative
functions of county govern-
ment. In general, it would
clarify the separation of these
two functions.
And an apparent key issue
in the discussions, a charter
could give the County
Commission the power to set
minimal policy standards on a
countywide basis, regardless
of municipal boundaries.
While the county might gain
authority to set minimal envi-
ronmental standards, such as
for groundwater, wetlands
and stormwater, some con-

Raider band in tune Poli"-


Band takes

top honors

BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

The South Sumter High
School Raider band has some
recognition to grab as the
2005-2006 school year comes
to a close all three bands -
the marching, jazz and con-
cert were superior ranked
this year.
They were "One of two
bands in our district to get
that this year," said band
director Jeremy Langford.
While it was a year of hard
work and major responsibili-
ty, Langford said students are
pleased with their success.
"You can only hope that it's
going to drum up more par-
ticipation," he said of the
future.
Langford said there was no
one thing they focused on,
"But I hold them responsi-
ble," he said.
He has a particular philos-
ophy in teaching, which he
implemented for the year.
"I use this as a medium for
learning life.'" he said.
explaining that everything
they learn will directly affect
them in real life.
"Practice and put in your
time, you're going to be duly
rewarded," he said, adding
that it's the same with a job,
but the reward is your pay.
"In a nutshell, that's my
philosophy of education."
Langford believes that
accountability is easier to
learn when they have the four
walls of school around them
than when they're out there
in the real world.
Of the dozens of band mem-
bers, he relied on seven,
"Student leaders who are
responsible for others, below
them."
When other band members
didn't come through,
Langford approached the
leaders, asking why things
weren't done.
It's "a tribute to the senior
class this year, a lot of them
stepped up," he said, adding
how proud he is of the entire
band.


South Sumter High-School Raider Band


And these students didn't
just succeed from their time
spent in the classroom they
had to stay after school, three
hours a day, two days a week
During the fall, they didn't get
any class time, because of
block scheduling.
Their biggest challenge has
become scheduling getting
rehearsals in, fighting after-
school jobs.
Out of 20 bands, South
Sumter was the only after
school band to take a superi-
or rating, Langford said.
He points out he's extreme-
ly proud of the band mem-
bers who have put in three-
plus hours of rehearsals after
school on Tuesdays and
Thursday and played during
the Friday night football
game.
One of the weekday prac-
tices was slated right after
school, the other at night.
Langford hopes to encour-
age students to make their
positive mark and good mem-
ories.

It's an opportunity,, "To
come out and be proud to be
a Raider," Langford said.
The band also has obliga-
tions outside school and con-
test, including performances
at the Florida National
Cemetery for Memorial Day
and Veterans' Day.
Langford has an under-
standing of the military needs
and patriotism in band he
spent nine years as .a
reservist the last five in
were in the military band.
He said the experience at
the cemetery is great for the
kids they're always
approached by at least three


or four people who are. cry-
ing, moved and appreciative
of the performance.
"It's priceless for them,"
Langford said.
"They just a bunch of hard-
working kids," "Looking for-
ward to what the future has in
store."
The South Sumter High
School Raider Band 29th
annual spring concert is com-
ing up.
This one is the "Legacy
Concert," which will include
special honors to former

Langford notes Sherman's
efforts in the past 20-plus
years and the varsity team's
success this year as number
two in the state.

Government out of


the 'sunshine'?


Want to know what happened
at the April 10 Coleman City
Council public hearing?
That's when City Clerk Clay Godwin
was suspended.
Well, we'd love to tell you more, but
we can't
Ever since that meeting, the Times
has unsuccessfully attempted to listen
to the tape of the meeting. Now keep
in mind, this is April 27, that's 17 days
since the meeting.
Despite two phone calls to City Hall
and leaving multiple phone messages
for City Attorney Brenda Smith, no
one has bothered to honor our
request to hear the tape.
Apparently, city officials have little
regard for the Florida Government in
the Sunshine law.
The law states: "It is the policy of
this state that all state, county and
municipal records shall at all times
be open for a personal inspection by
any person." Public records are
defined as "all documents, sound
recordings or other material, regard-
less of physical form or characteris-
tics, made or received...in connection
with the transaction of official busi-
ness by any agency."
It leaves us wondering why a simple
public records request has turned
into such an impossible feat And why,
at least, the city attorney wouldn't be
more receptive to our request.

Diabetes is a disease in which the
body has trouble converting carbohy-
drates (sugars and starches) to ener-
gy. People with diabetes should mon-
itor their carbohydrate intake but
they don't have to give up eating
sugar. Sugar should, however, be
used in moderation. So, you don't
have to pass up that peanut butter
cookie. But, make sure you only eat
one small one and cut back on other
carbohydrate foods such as bread or
potato.

Airboat education campaign continues


Florida airboat owners
have a few more months to
ensure their crafts have auto-
motive-style* mufflers
installed on the boats' engine
exhausts.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) approved
the enforcement protocol last
year, effective June 30, 2006.
An education campaign for
airboat owners will continue
through June 30. After that
date, FWC officers have the
option to issue written warn-
ings or citations for failure to
use the appropriate muffling
devices.
Registered airboat owners

cerns were raised that the
county would be able to gain
control over cities' land-use
and development issues.
Some counties, Howell
reported, use "starter char-
ters" which upon adoption

A charter could also allow
the county to enact a "munici-
pal utility tax" in the unincor-
porated areas of the county to
help provide services in the
faster growing areas of the
county.
She also noted in the pres-
entation that it is usually easi-
er to amend a charter than to
adopt a new:charter.
Howell also listed the
process for a county charter to
get on the ballot for a voter
decision:
A charter commission
established by the commission
could issue a binding recom-
mendation.
It could be proposed by
ordinance drafted by the
board.
Or, a citizens advisory com-
mittee could provide a non-
binding recommendation.
While the board is prepar-
ing for possible consideration
of the issue, the state legisla-
ture might make some
changes that would weigh con-
siderably on the commission

Pending legislation could
give cities the ability to "opt
out" of countywide ordi-
nances, including those
involving the use, develop-
ment or re-development of
land and voluntary annexa-
tion.
The proposed bill would
effect existing charter county
provisions also, giving the
cities the choice of "opting
out" by ordinance.
County commissioners
recently agreed to notify the
legislative delegation of their
objections to that legislation.
Arnold proposed a number
of questions for the board,
including why the commission
wants to consider charter gov-
ernment.
He also asked what overrid-
ing benefit would be the "sell-
ing point" offered to the vot-
ers.
And, he wanted to know

nances to restrict vessel
sound to 90 decibels at 50
feet.
Researchers examined
sound levels from different
styles of mufflers including
exhaust and intake manifold
mufflers and differing pro-
peller designs at various
operating speeds and dis-
tances from an observer.
They determined that several
components, when used
together, could provide the
needed incremental
improvements to reduce air-
boat sound levels significant-
ly. They include mufflers,
wide-blade propellers and
prop-speed reduction.
Commissioners expressed a
variety of views on the subject
Commissioner Jim Roberts -
who had apparently been pro-
moting the charter issue to
some extent and
Commissioner Randy Mask
both, said they like the con-
cept for centralizing some of
the county's functions such as
purchasing and human
resources.
But, neither of those com-
missioners expressed any
desire for appointed officers.
"I'm not sure as a citizen
that I want to give up my right
to elect a sheriff, clerk of court
or any of the constitutional
officers," Roberts said.
He later said he was not
even interested in continuing
the discussions of the topic if it
involved appointed officials.
"I'm not interested in remov-
ing any of the citizens rights
today."
But, he did note that he
liked the potential savings to
the county. "Five percent of a
$100 million budget is $5 mil-
lion."


South Sumter Middle School
student Harsh Patel is shown
on his trip to Washington D.C.
with other students from
around the nation. Patel was
selected to meet with other
students to take part in a spe-
cial learning experience
called People to People. The
program, created by the late
president Dwight D.
Eisenhower, was designed to
promote peace and under-
standing in 1956. Students
from around the world gather
in places around the world to
learn and share.


Commissioner Richard
Hoffman said he liked the idea
of a study of the comparable
systems. That's one reason it
wouldn't likely be ready for a
vote in November.
Commissioner Michael
Francis said that it seems that
part of the motivation for the
charter issue came from the
Bridgeport Men's Club, a
Villages-based organization.
They have done a prelimi-
nary study, Francis said. One
reason for a charter would be
to get formal coordination of
the comprehensive plan
between the cities and the
county.
Two recent issues in that
area have been the recent
northward annexations by
Wildwood and Center Hills
annexation of property for a
new limerock mine and
cement plant
"The cities are doing some
things that county residents
are upset about," Francis said.
But, he noted that there are
other reasons to consider a
charter, including the poten-


tial financial savings to the
county.
But, commission Chairman
Joey Chandler had little use
for the proposal.
"Don't like it don't want it,"
Chandler said. "If it ain't
broke, don't fix it."
"People told us before that
they wanted to vote for all of
us," he said, referring to the
issue of possibly appointing
officials and the voter
approved switch two years ago
to county-wide elections for
commissioners.
Arnold said that some of the
issues that the board might
consider are whether or not a
proposed charter would pro-
vide for a county mayor or
chairman and how they would
want a committee to be setup.
Francis, had asked early
about possibly getting the
issue on the November ballot.
But, Arnold responded that
there was not sufficient time -
that the board was about a
month behind schedule for
accomplishing that.
"Trying to push quickly is

A


not prudent on like this, I
think," he said.
When asked about the cities'
role in the process, Arnold
noted that it would be a matter
of whether they work for or
against a charter proposal.
"If the board feels strongly
about county-wide ordinances
prevailing, them you may want
to consider the cities' stance
and potential agreements on
that," Arnold said.
The makeup of a committee
for the project would be up to
the commission, he said in
response to the commission-
er's questions. "It's important
if we're going to get the needs
of the cities, the citizens and
the constitutional officers.
"You will need to determine
how you want to work with the
cities if you want to pursue
this," Arnold said.

Gorilla leads to student win


Prevatt gets

Golden Pallet
BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

When Veronica Prevatt was
just a little tyke, she captured
her very own green gorilla. She
locked him in a purple cage
and moved him into a red
room.
She didn't have to run
through the jungle or put her-
self in danger. Prevatt was safe-
ly tucked away at Hobby Horse
daycare in Bushnell and her
new pet was on paper.
That's when she first real-
ized she had a serious interest
in art
She still has that picture, but
she's come a long way from
green gorillas.
These days she's doing
murals and paintings and plan-
ning her creations for the com-
puter games she hopes to cre-
ate. Now 18, she's on her way to
Daytona Beach Community
College just across the street
from Electronice Arts the
maker of some top video
games.
It's also her last year at South
Sumter High School. The sen-
ior was chosen by art teacher
Cindy Spell to receive the
school's Golden Pallet Award.
Spell chose Prevatt because
of her dedication and willing-
ness to make things happen.
"She's always willing to do
anything I asked," Spell said,
pointing out their recent mural
for the county fair.
She said Prevatt and another
student put the mural together.
"I've liked watching her tal-
ent bloom," Spell said.
"Shading's improved," Spell
said with a smile, drawing a
laugh from Prevatt, who had
already mentioned that shad-
ing was one of the things Spell
helped her with.
"She's always trying tq got
that extra inch that's just
Veronica," Spell said.
Even when it comes to help-
ing in other areas. For exam-
ple, she's helped Spell with her
computer.


Prevatt is also on the school
Hi-Q team, is sweet and well-
liked, according to Spell.
She plans to attend college
for. video game design and
wants to create some interac-
tive games for kids that allow
them have fun and learn with-
out realizing they're learning.
What she's picked up in art
will help her with tones and
shadows on storyboards, as her
games are created.
Prevatt has a 4.0-plus grade-
point average and hopes for a
promising career in video
games.
She said more than $46 bil-
lion dollars was spent in the
industry last year.
She got her first computer in
1994 a friend of the family
gave it to them. But she was the
only one who was really inter-
ested, so it went into her room,
she said.
Even now, she's the one who
sets up the Play Station for
play.
She couldn't even type when
she started out and still hasn't
learned to type 'correctly, but
says she manages over 100
words a minute with three of
her fingers.
She said she doesn't know
how, but they (her fingers) do.
After her early experiences,
Prevatt said she began to draw
with graphite and in middle
school with colored pencils.
Her subjects were usually
things she had seen.
She even worked with clay
during those early years and
said her dad still has a couple
of her clay cupholders.
She had Linda Farmer for
art at South Sumter Middle
School for two years and spent
a lot of time doing ceramics at,
a shop in Lake Panasoffkee.
Her house is full of angels and
dragons and Native American
ceramics from those days.
At South Sumter High
School, Prevatt began to learn
from teacher Cindy Spell.
"She taught me how to use
watercolors, which has become
my preferred choice of medi-
um," she said.
Spell has taught her to hone
her talents and to make her
characters look more realistic
she said, adding that her work

Community Colleges Key Player


In Florida's Workforce Needs


LEESBURG (April 6, 2006) -
Lake-Sumter Community
College, along with Florida's
other 27 community colleges.
are playing an increasingly
vital role in preparing young
people to enter the workforce
and in retraining adults to
qualify for the fastest growing
jobs in Florida.
According to Florida
TaxWatch's new research
report detailing community
college benefits to students
and the state's economy, it
found that most of in-demand
jobs require community col-
lege degrees, not university
degrees. Dominic M. Calabro.
president and CEO of this non-
partisan government watch-
dog group says, "The commu-
nity college students benefit
from higher wages. while
Florida and its taxpayers ben-
efit from the resulting higher
employment, enhanced tax
revenues, lower social service
costs and increased gross state
product" The research also
notes additional advantages to
the state through avoided
costs of crime, welfare and
unemployment benefits.
"We've been an efficient and
productive system in provid-
ing opportunities for an
increasingly diverse and grow-
ing number of Florida stu-
dents," said LSCC President
Charles Mojock, "while provid-
ing a crucial workforce to, sup-
port the state's growing econo-
my."
Created in response to com-
munity needs for post second-
ary academic and technical
degree education, Florida's
community colleges had an


enrollment of 800,000 students
last year, most of them part-
time with an average age of 27
years old. The Florida
TaxWatch report states that
university tuition increases
and tightening financial aid
have driven more high school
:graduates toward community
colleges. Sixty percent of high
school graduates, who go on to
college, attend a community
college. Full-time enrollment
rose 25 percent from 1999 to
2004, and is expected to sur-
pass 320,000 students by 2007.
The report offers hardnum-
bers to document positive eco-
nomic, civic and individual
benefits of Florida's communi-
ty colleges. Additional find-
ings included:
S Community college gradu-


ates are paid more than high
school graduates, with addi-
tional annual earnings of $112
per credit hour taken or $3,926
for each full-time. (12 credit
hours) student.
Community college gradu-
ates with an Associate in Arts
degree earn $220,000 more
and those with Associate in
Science degrees earn $480,000
more in a lifetime than a high
school graduate.
Through their resulting
increased spending power,
those graduates will create 2.6
new jobs tor Florida's econo-
my.
Public funding of commu-
nity colleges more than repays
itself in economic growth by a
13.3 to 1 ratio.
Florida students enjoy a


good return on investment as
well, out performing on aver-
age their national counter-
parts and enjoying a 34%
return on investment, com-
pared to the national average
of 25%.
Last year, the Florida
Legislature appropriated $849
million dollars from General
Revenue and another $99 mil-
lion from the Lottery to com-
munity colleges. Student fees
provided another $459 mil-
lion. Florida TaxWatch rec-
ommends that further
research be done to determine
what, if any changes, should
be made to state funding and
how best to use the communi-
ty colleges to meet current and
future student and workforce
challenges.-

Lake-Sumter Community College President Honored


LEESBURG (April 11,2006) -
Nine people were honored on
March 29, during the annual
Lake County Community
Service Awards Banquet One
of those notables was Lake-
Sumter Community College
President Dr. Charles Mojock,
recognized for his contribu-
tions to education.
Barbara Perry, program
director of Leadership Lake
County, one of the banquet's
sponsors, said the committee
of judges received more than
100 nominations from the com-
munity for the eight cate-
gories. Selected by a panel of
judges, the Awards usually rec-
ognize citizens for a lifetime of
work within the Lake County
community. Serving as LSCC's
president since 2002, Dr.
Mojock's selection emphasized
the impact he has made on
LSCC and entire community
within a short four years.
Some of those successes are
creating invaluable communi-
ty partnerships resulting in
joint-use projects such as the
new library and softball com-
plex on the South Lake
Campus, and leading the col-
lege during its most dramatic
growth from a full-time equiva-
lent enrollment of 1,825 in 2002
to 2,339 in 2005, with a more
than a 136 percent increase in
minority students. During his
tenure, he generated commu-
nity support that increased

Drop in water level to benefit Panasoffkee


In an effort to continue to
improve water clarity in Lake
Panasoffkee, the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District is temporarily lower-
ing the lake level by operating
the Wysong-Coogler Water
Conservation Structure.
The District is in the
process of dredging approxi-
mately 3.4 million cubic yards
of sediment from the lake to
improve fish habitat, restore
the historic lake shoreline
and improve navigation.
However, the process of
dredging the sediment is also
removing beneficial sub-
merged vegetation. The state
permit for the dredging
requires vegetation to cover a
percentage of the lake bottom.
Submerged aquatic vegeta-
tion helps maintain good

water quality.
The District expects the
desirable vegetation to return
if it receives sufficient sun-
light. Eelgrass needs about 9
percent of the sunlight that
hits the surface to filter to the
bottom. The dredged areas
are deeper, reducing the
,amount of sunlight that reach-
es the eelgrass. Lowering the
lake levels will increase this
light reaching the vegetation.
Over.the last year the water
level in Lake Panasoffkee'has
been maintained at almost 40
feet above sea level. During
the past month, the District
has lowered the level of the
lake by one foot, to 39 feet
This is not enough to reach
the necessary 9 percent light
level, so District staff is lower-

foot at a time to determine
what level will sustain the
desirable light level.
Lake Panasoffkee will not
be lowered below 38 feet,
because that is the level need-
ed to continue the dredging
process. Once the vegetation
returns, the lake levels may
rise. Dredging is expected to
continue through January
2008, however, all time frames
are approximate and may
change based on conditions
beyond the District's control.

But, Rogers said that it was
not actually a comparable sit-

It gives the applicant some
flexibility, but it keeps much of
the agricultural area in open

The developer is installing a
central sewer system, a costly
amenity, Rogers said. This is
needed to make the project
economically feasible.
Roberts still protested.
"We're going to take a stand on

board to keep the agricultural

said.
"Then he built laundromats
and several convenience
stores," and at one time, they
both had their real estate

Mrs. Drawdy had the busi-
ness background and said
having grown up, "...in a gro-
cery store. My father taught
me a lot about business."
She liked the indoors, he
loved the outdoors, but "They
say opposites attract," she
said.
And while she shared some
of Drawdy's life, Mrs. Drawdy
was very concerned that noth-
ing sound boastful.
She said Drawdy was '"A
very, very humble person. He
never bragged on what he
did."
"He never told anybody
what he did (for others)," she
said, adding that sometimes,
that even meant her.
Sh'e would only learn of
what he had done for others
when they approached her
years later to tell her how
kind he had been or how
appreciative they were.

"He liked ranching. He

that they had scaled back

"He just had to pull in his

She said they have a won-

rently taking care of things for
them.
Their son Jack P died in

Roger Meder has operated
Meder's Septic Tank Service
on an adjacent property. He
said that he was not totally
opposed to the project, but
was concerned that the pro-

would be somewhat next to his
property.
Meder said' he had heard

After all those years as

and blessed and gave thanks,
she said.
She told him, "The Lord has
been good to you and you won
all your elections. There's a
time to come and a time to go."
And he did retire.:
"He was a very religious
man he loved his church and
he supported his church," she
said.
Former Sumter Sheriff
Jamie Adams worked with
Drawdy for years, as both
sheriff and then before that as
a game warden.
"He was a real judge and I
knew him to be fair," Adams
said.
"While you might not
always agree with him, you
respected him and knew he
was going to be fair."
Adams said Drawdy was
also a self-made man, who had
things difficult coming up.
Old Florida cracker throw-
backs, was the way Adams
referred to Drawdy and him-
self.
"We \ ere both right for the
times when we served."
"He understood the people
in Sumter County and was
close to them."
Drawdy knew the heartbeat
of the county and understood
what real justice was, Adams
said.
"I could always depend on
getting him in the middle of
the night to get a search war-
rant if I needed one," Adams
said.
"He was good for Sumter
County"
Pointing out Drawdy's rela-
tionship with his wife Vera, he
said

"That's going to look nice,"
he said, adding that it was
"ridiculous."
But, David Tillman, a con-
sultant representing the appli-
cants, said that the applicant
had considered the concerns
about the sewage treatment
plant and that it would be relo-
cated somewhat away from
the neighboring properties.
He also said that the devel-
opment would have only a six-
foot-high brick fence that
would not be totally enclosing
- that there would be some sort
of "wrought iron look" with a
more open effect.
Tillman also said he
addressed the issue of schools
with Jim Allen at the Sumter
County School District and
that Allen had informed him
that there was sufficient
school capacity available.
Commissioners raised some
other concerns, such as visual
screening or buffers and the
possibility of additional emer-
gency access from other road-
ways.
Chandler also suggested
that there be an access gate for
residents to use to get to the

in Sumter County. He was
tough, he was relentless.
"He didn't mind standing
out in Sumter County in a-
rainstorm and shaking
hands," Adams said, adding
that Drawdy was one of the
last non-lawyer judges to
serve.
"He was a good judge."
Adams and Drawdy were
also friends outside work.
"We were personal friends,
we hunted together, we were
in social organizations togeth-
er," Adams said.
Drawdy is survived by his
grandson, John C. Drawdy of
Leesburg; a granddaughter,
Kelly M. Drawdy of Leesburg;
a daughter-in-law Lavonia
Drawdy of Leesburg, two
nieces Sarah Gross of Ft.
Walton Beach and Janice
Powell, of McClenny and one
nephew Jitter Akins of
Webster.
Drawdy served as a mem-
ber of Sumter County School
Board, the Bushnell Masonic
Lodge # 30 F and AM, a 32nd
degree Scottish Rite Mason
and a member of the Bahia
Shrine Temple in Orlando.
Visitation .. is slated for
Thursday, April 27 from 1 p.m.

Church of Webster.
Services will follow at 2 p.m.

Dr. Haig Medzarentz and
Pastor Emery King.
VFW Post 8083 will provide
military honors. Drawdy
served in the United States
Army during World War II.
Interment will be at the
Garden of Memories in
Webster.
In lieu of flowers, the family
suggests that donations be
made to the Hospice of Lake
and Sumter or to the
Methodist or Baptist chil-
dren's homes.

Villages development. She
said she was not attacking
Sullivan personally but ques-
tioning the appearance of his
relationship with the two enti-
ties.
The letter referred to
SWFWMD's work on setting
minimum flows and levels for
area water bodies.
"Commissioners from
Sumter on our board and a
major developer in Sumter,
The Villages, made us aware
that the implementation of
the 'proposed MFLs could
severely restrict the build out
of existing approved develop-
ment in the county," Sullivan's
letter states.
The minimum flows and
levels could impact issuance
of water use permits and have
an effect on permits already
issued if a lake or wetland
falls below the specified mini-
mum.
Racine said she saw this as
"a major conflict," and that
attorneys she has consulted
view the situation differently,
than Haag. .
In an April 14 letter to
Sullivan, Racine wrote that
for the WRWSA to have maxi-
mum credibility, its executive
director cannot be a paid
advocate of any special inter-
estgroup.
"My concern remains that
the modeling process (for
minimum flows and levels) be
as close to 'pure science' as
possible, and not have the

About 8 a.m.
tones broke
the morning
silence
Firefighters can only do cer-
tain things to plan for their
days: stay fit, eat well, rest,
keep their skills up through
training.
But as each day begins they
know that their day will be
orchestrated by the needs in
their communities, always
knowing their goal and mis-
sion is to save lives and to pro-
tect property.
And so it was on the morn-
ing of April 10. About 8 a.m.,
tones broke the morning
silence at Sumter County Fire
Rescue Station 21 Lake
Panasoffkee, with a request
for service to fight a structure
fire. As the firefighters
donned their equipment and
set out in their fire engines,
good neighbors did what they
could to keep the blaze in the
mobile home at bay.
Firefighters arrived to find
the owner safely outside of
the structure and quickly
extinguished the blaze. As
firefighting operations moved
into the "mop-up" stage, com-
mand was informed that the
family cat was still inside.


Pictured (left to right) are Division Chief Jim Simon and
Firefighter Tom Murdaugh.


, Sumter County Firefighter
Tom Murdaugh entered the
charred structure to search.
In a back bedroom he found a
gray fuzzy cat, still and hiding
behind a bed, but breathing,
with evidence of smoke
inhalation.
As he moved the cat to fresh
air, he was joined by Division
Chief Jim Simon and


Firefighters Kim Ivy and
Melissa Strickland.
Together, the crew adminis-
tered oxygen to the cat that
quickly regained his compo-
sure and moved on to enjoy
his new life for the day.
When asked if he knew the
cat's name, Murdaugh said it
best, "In my mind, his name
will always be Lucky!"

only five months old, precious

grieve her death.
To help us cope, we are all
grateful to her foster family,

help.
What is the hardest to bear is
the foster home that loses a
young kitty or dog in their care
to illness. It doesn't happen
often, but when it does, it is
heartbreaking.
While one kitty has passed
away, another foster family is
nursing a cat back to health
after being hit by a car. And
another foster home cares for
Fredrick, a senior arthritic dog.
Every foster family is special,
and the ones that foster special
needs animals are exceptional
in the care and nurturing they
must provide to help the ani-
mals in their care.
The Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County is able to keep its
commitment to the animals in
our care because of the special
foster families who volunteer for
us. Our hats go off to them all,
and we are forever thankful to
their dedication and help.

Oud.ja uid ADAMS



Spending Easter weekend on airboat excursions


It had probably been at
least a couple of months
since I had last put my air-
boat in the water.
So, having a free
weekend with noth-
ing exciting to do I
decided to take it
down to Lake Wales
where my eldest
son Jimmy lives and
check out a few out, -l
of the way places he
had told me about
that he though
might make for an
interesting day. I JA
would be checking AD
out places that
could only be
approached by a strong air-
boat or a Go-Devil boat.
The place Jimmy located
was Reedy Creek, a small
creek that connects Lake
Reedy to Lake Arbuckle
which is located down close to
the unique village of Frost
Proof. Jimmy is an investiga-
tor with the Fish and Game
Commission..His job requires
that he patrol and check on
the out of the way places
where illegal game and fish
operations might be taking
place. Many of these locations
are not the spots the average
honest sportsmen might ven-
ture into but someone with
illegal intentions could make
use of them as their regular
haunts.
Reedy Creek has always
been -there but it has been
inaccessible for years in that
over time many huge cypress
trees fell across the creek all
along the narrow corridor as it
twists and turns while flowing
from Lake Reedy to Lake
Arbuckle. With all of the natu-
ral obstructions, the creek
was virtually impassible to
navigate until only recently
when the county or state gov-
ernment opened it up by
removing all the natural
obstructions so that the water
could run unimpeded.
I reckon this. is fine and
dandy if you only have flood
control in mind due to all of
the recent hurricanes but with
the beauitfuil unspoiled creek
now being opened.up to motor
boat traffic traveling up and
down the creek at will it is just
a short matter of time before
the effects of man and his
destructive ways will most
assuredly show up.
As of right now, the creeks
water level is extremely low
and only an airboat or as men-
tioned a Go-Devil powered
boat can make it through the
creek due to it being so shal-
low. But, as soon as a little rain
comes and the two adjoining
lakes levels once again rise to
normal, any type outboard

motor boat could easily tra-
verse the pristine creeks
route and the creek will
immediately show
the effects of mans
use both well inten-
tioned and
inevitably the bad
also.
On the trip
through the creek,
Jimmy and I made
on my airboat I only
observed one beer
can along the
shoreline and it
MIE was of a vintage
WMS made at least 30
years ago. I have to
but wonder howev-
er what the unspoiled shore-
line and creek bottom will
look like even a couple of
months from now.
I suppose the easy answer
could be to shut the creek
down to boating traffic but
that is not the right answer.
The real answer is for all us
caring and concerned real
sportsmen to take care and
pride in what little natural
unspoiled resources we still
have left in our fast dissolving
beautiful state.
Folks, it is for sure that we
sportsmen and other knowing
voting citizens must take the
necessary steps to correct the
sickening situation going on
with the everyday destruction
of our natural resources as the
slick talking shallow minded
politicians and glut hog
money grubbing land develop-
ers desiring to build still
another hundred or more golf
courses and dozens of new
sprawl malls are sure not
going to protect our state.
Good folks, Reedy Creek's
natural make up is so unique
and pristine that you almost
imagine you are going back in
time a thousand years. The
banks of the creek are in
places nearly thirty feet high
and there is no other place in
the entire state that has this
type shoreline that I am aware
of. The sheer high banks mak-
ing up most of the creeks
shoreline consists of pure
white sand and the under-
growth growing on the high
banks consists of saw palmet-
to and native trees found in
both Florida hammocks as
well as the unique type vege-
tation found only in the
Florida highland scrub areas
of the state. I know of no other
place in the state that has this
distinct and unusual diverse
type of native habitat in one
small location and thankfully
now the state of Florida owns
it.
Jimmy doesn't think the
native Indians lived along the
creek due to the area possibly

being under water during the
period when most of the
Indians lived in the state but
he doesn't know for sure. He
just has not, as of this time,
found any telling evidence
that would substantiate his
theory one way or the other.
For my part, it looks like it
would have been the ideal
place to live as it sure has a lot
to offer in the way of what
someone living off the land
might require for survival.
After checking out Reedy
Creek, we made a short trip
over to Lake Kissimmee and
put in my airboat and rode
around the north shoreline
and over to Brahma Island. At
Brahma Island there were
some exotic cattle feeding on
the native lake grasses and
one of the strange bulls resid-
ing there had some of the
largest horns I have ever seen
on any animal wild or domes-
tic. In fact, the horns were so
big that the bull could hardly
lift its head. I reckon these
exotic cattle were brought to
the island somewhere back in

Age is only a number



when a man loves to run


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Many runners can look at
Jim Blount and hope they can
run as well when they
reach his age.
Blount, 76, is one of those
runners who has been blessed
with good health and a dearth
of injuries. He also will run
his 1,000th race some time in
the next year. He has already
run three marathons plus a
pair of 31-mile distance tests.
He was selected Citrus
RoadRunners Runnerof then.
Year in 2003. The award may
very well have been a kind of
"lifetime achievement"
award. Blount lives in
Bushnell but took the great
circle route to reach his
Sumter County home.
Blount was born in
Hillsdale, Michigan. He
played football, basketball
and ran track at Jonesville
High. He ran the half-mile
and mile. He spent two years
at Hillsdale College, playing
semipro basketball. He spent
two years in the Army. He was
stationed in San Luis Obispo,
California and Fort Holabird
in Maryland and in Paris,
Francis. He worked in person-
nel management in the Army.
He moved to Los Angeles
after leaving the Army. He
worked in finance, as an asso-
ciate manager of a firm on the
New York Stock Exchange. He
was there for 16 years and

Jim Blout
in the United States and
Canada. He moved to Winter
Park in 1975 and lived there
for 15 years while working for
the golf industry. He retired in
1992 and moved to Bushnell
in 1993.
He started running compet-
itively when he was 48 years
old. "I ran 5Ks," he said. "The
longest was a 31-miler. I ran
those when I was in my mid-
50s."
Blount said he doesn't run
with the speed he had years


ago. He ran 959 races
by the end of 2005.
"I have run some half
marathons,' he said. "I have
run several half marathons. I
normally place but don't nec-
essarily win my age group.
Fortunately, I am still capable
of running.
It took a mishap to push
Blount into the competitive
running. "I had been in a car
accident," he said. "I had
some massive leg damage. On
a challenge, I entered a race."
Blount isn't necessarily that
concerned with his time. "I
enjo. the purity of the spoil,"
lie said "I enjoy the competi-
tiveness of it. As I get older,
the age group gets smaller. I
want to continue for the com-
petitiveness and my health.
"Fortunately, I have been able
to keep my health," he said.
An active individual, Blount
likes to give of himself as a
volunteer. He is a member of
the Dade Battlefield Society
and works as a volunteer. "I
have no particular skills to
volunteer whenever possi-
ble," he said. 'At a recent
South Sumter High track, I
did timing which I normally
do. The schools are always in
need of help. I was a cross
country volunteer coach
for several years."
Blount wants to keep hitting
the pavement. "I want to run
as long as I am capable of
competing," he said. "I want
to run as best I can. I was run-
ning at 65 far better, times
than I am now."


Citrus topples South Sumter, 17-3


C.J. RISAK
Special to the Times

Something's happened in
the last six weeks. Back when
Citrus' baseball team visited
South Sumter, it was hardly a
pleasant journey. The Raiders
hammered the Hurricanes 11-
5.
In the time since that deba-
cle, it could safely be said
Citrus has put its game togeth-
er. After all, the Hurricanes
have won 14 of 17 games since
then, before hosting South
Sumter in a return engage-
ment last Thursday night
Like the first game, this one
wasn't pretty either only this
time it was South Sumter that
suffered the ignominy of a lop-
sided defeat Citrus struck for
seven runs in the first inning
and added six more in the sec-
ond, and the picture never
improved for the Raiders, who
tried four pitchers in four
innings but never found an
answer in suffering a 17-3
mercy-rule loss. The victory
allows Citrus to conclude its
regular season at 18-7. South
Sumter is 12-13.
"We're a much different
team than we were when we
* went over there," said Citrus
Coach Jon Bolin. "We've
, improved defensively, our


pitching is better, and offen-
sively we're much improved."
That was plainly evident
from the start against South
Sumter. The Raiders had man-
aged just a bloop single in the
first two innings against Citrus
starter Joey Budnick, and as it
turned out they would get very
little else until there, was no
doubt as to the outcome.
And that assurance came
quickly.
South Sumter starter Zack
Robison hit Citrus lead-off
batter Nick Delguidice, then
gave up a two-run home run
over the right-centerfield
fence to Randy Hernandez.
When Robison walked the
next batter, South Sumter
coach Allen Shirley pulled his
pitcher.
"Plain and simple, he wasn't
throwing strikes," said Shirley.
"That was pretty much the
case, so we went with Plan B."
As it turned out, Plan B wasn't
any better than Plan A or any
other plan the Raiders tried.
Justin Andrews relieved
Robison and he gave up a
walk, a run-scoring double to
Derek Desomma, RBI singles
to Jarod Mann and Anthony
Delguidice, and then a two-
run double to the guy who
started it all, Hernandez.
A lack of fielding con-
tributed to South Sumter's


woes in the second inning.
Two errors combined with five
hits two of them doubles and
a walk led to six more Citrus
runs. Anthony Delguidice had
another RBI single and Nick
Delguidice added a run-pro-
ducing double, which was fol-
lowed by a two-run double by
Hernandez. Hernandez fin-
ished the game with a homer
and two doubles in three trips,
with six RBI. Shirley called on
his third pitcher, Chris
Matthews, three batters into
the second inning, and then
summoned Travis Hutcheson
to start the fourth.
The pitching wasn't good, to
be sure, allowing 14 hits, four
walks and a hit batsman in
four innings. But five errors by
the Raiders didn't help mat-
ters, either.
"Sometimes things start
going wrong and it's that snow-
ball effect," said Shirley. "But
you can assume we never plan
to kick the ball around like
Little Leaguers. "We had a lit-
tle bit of everything that's not
good in baseball happen to us
tonight"
The Raiders got two runs in
the fourth on a double by Kyle
Starnes and a two-run homer
by Robison, and got a third in
the fifth on a Alex Ornelas'
double, an error and Jared
Chandler's ground out

Middle schoolers explore Center Hill fish farm


Guided by South Sumter Middle School science teacher Luke Bennett, eighth-grader Tiffany Fortsch
studies bugs and insects found in one of the ponds at Florida Fish Farms in Center Hill last Friday.


Koi are one of several different types of fish raised at Florida Fish Farms in Center Hill, which was visited by South Sumter Middle
School students last Friday.

Edwards examine bugs and insects through a magnifying glass during a
trip to Florida Fish Farms in Center Hill on April 21.


iddle schliool-
er, got a
glimpse of a
daN n the life
aquatic April 21 \hen the\
stepped off the bus and onto
Ron Sla 's fish farm just outside
the cit, limits of Center Hill.
This is the fourth %ear Florida
Fish Farms, Inc. has hosted the
tour for South Sumter Middle
School eighth-graders.
About 45 students .vere di\ id-
ed into groups and took turns in
fi\e stations set up around the
farm. \\here the\ dabbled in
after r sampling, bug identifica-
tion and just checking out some
of the farm's aquatic inhabi-
tants, including koi, catfish,
bluegill and largemouth bass.
There are millions of fish on
the 80-acre farm, which are sold
retail and wholesale, according
to Slay's fiance, June Wilson,
who helped guide the tours.
One highlight of the trip was a
walk around several tanks hold-
ing countless multicolored koi,
ornamental carp with Japanese
origins.
Wilson explained how koi are
raised, and how the fish will be
injected with hormones and
placed in other tanks to spawn.
She said all of the farm's koi


comes from brood stock import-
ed from Japan.
To minimize spread of dis-
eases. "\\e allo\\ no outside fish
to come in," she said.
Other activities students
enjoyed at the farm included
water sampling and bug identifi-
cation.
Thomas Edwards. 14. %\as
among those trn ing to identity
bugs in one of Slay's -16 ponds.
"Actually, it's kind of weird,"
Edwards said of the wigygl.
creature he %\as holding in a
Petri dish. "It has feet in the
front but not in the back."
After the exercise, SSMIS sci-
ence teacher Luke Bennett said
bug identification is "the one
they get into the most.
"Initially, we get the 'ooh,
gross,' and then they get inter-
ested," he said.
Slay, a 30-year veteran of the
industry, said operating a fish
farm is hard work.
"These things didn't happen
by themselves out here," he
said.
"It's a 24-hour a day job."
Wilson said though the work
has its drawbacks, she, never
tires of the life or the fish.
"I still love them," she said. "I
never get tired of them."

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER

For Aqua Utilities Florida Customers in The Woods
The Woods water system routinely monitors for the pres-
ence of drinking water contaminants. Test results from
monitoring showed that our system exceeded the U. S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) drinking water
standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for to-
tal trihalomethanes (TTHMs). The MCL for TTHMs is 80
ug/L (micrograms per liter). The running annual aver-
age (RAA) level of TTHMs over the last four quarters was
90,2 ug/L.
Although this Is not an emergency, as our customer,,
you have a right to know what happened, what
you should do, and what we are doing to correct this
situation.
What should I do? You do not need to use an alterna-
tive (e.g., bottled) water supply or bol your water.
However, If you have specific health concerns, consult
your doctor. Because some research suggests a possi-
ble connection between high levels of THMs and preg-
nancy problems, women of childbearing age may
wish to seek alternative water sources. Customers who
are concerned about exposure to THMs can choose
alternative sources of water (e.g. bottled water) or use
a home water treatment device, such as a "flow
through' pitcher, certified by NSF for reducing THMs.
(Contact NSF at 1-800-670-fj275 or http://www.nsf.org.)
What does this mean? This Is not an Immediate risk. If it
had been, you would have been notified Immediate-
ly. Disinfectants combine with naturally occurring or-
ganic and Inorganic matter In water to form chemicals
called disinfection byproducts (DBPs), including THMs.
The EPA sets standards for controlling the levels of disin-
fectants and DBPs In drinking water. Some people who
drink water containing trihafomethanes In excess of
the MCL over many years may experience problems
with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and
may have an Increased risk of getting cancer,
What happeooned? What is belng done? When will the
problem be corrected?
We are presently making changes.to the way we oper-
ate the system, Including Increased flushing, to lower
TTHM levels. We will continue quarterly testing and will
notify you of future results until complance Is achieved.
Please share this Infomati'on with all the other people
who drink this water, especially those who may not
have received this notice directly (for example, people
In apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses.
