A seven-hour standoff
between a Bushnell man and
sheriff's deputies ended
Monday morning when the
man was apprehended and
arrested on several charges.
The incident started about
9:30 p.m., Sunday, May 21,
when deputies responded to a
domestic dis-
turbance at
2780 County
Road 575,
Bushnell,
according to
sheriff's Lt.

Summers, 44,
came home intoxicated and
got into an argument with his
live-in girlfriend, according to
Caruthers. Summers kept ask-
ing the woman for his .45-cal-
iber handgun.
When she refused to give
him the gun, Summers
became angry and struck her
in the head, according to
Caruthers. Summers then
retrieved a .223-caliber rifle

indicted by a Sumter County
grand jury May 10 for first-
degree murder, according the
sheriff's office.
Mobley's body \?as found
face down and tied up with


Oliver's attorney. Julian
Harrison, asked for the short-
est possible prison term of 40
years, but Hallman ordered
the maximum: seven consecu-
tive sentences amounting to
195 years.
Hallman denied a motion
for a retrial in what he called
"a very emotional case."
The motion was based on a
letter he received from a con-
cerned juror that %\hat
Hallman said amounted "to
little more than Ibuer's
remorse."
The jurorwrote that she felt
pressured into convicting
Oliver.
."There is no indication that
any outside source infltue ntcd
the jurors' verdict"
Hallman said he received
"many fine, letters" about
Oliver but could not iv\e a li fe
sentence.

October 2005 arrest reported-

Commissioners
approve agreement
to makeover South
Sumter Plaza
MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent

Sumter County
Commissioners on Tuesday
approved a lease agreement
that will result in an almost
total makeover for the aging
South Sumter Plaza strip
shopping center in Bushnell.
Commissioners' said noth-
ing except to offer a motion
and approve it unanimously.
But, the action comes after
about a year of planning for
new county government
buildings, planning for tem-
porary office space, and nego-
tiating for a lease. Then, gen-
erally discarding the plans
and developing new ones.
The end result will be a
shuffle of county, services
among existing county build-
ings in the Bushnell govern-
ment complex along with
some renovation and remod-
eling and a migration of
some major government oper-
ations to the old shopping
center on N. Main Street.
County officials will now be
able to get started on the
somewhat involved process
after approving the lease con-
tract with Boulder LLC for
about 52,000 square-feet of
space.
While the county will have
to pay for renovations and
roof replacement of $140,698,
some commissioners have
touted the rate of $3.50 per
square foot.
The contract provides for
the monthly rent to begin Jan.
1, 2007, a date set to provide
for the roof replacement and
interior renovations.
The center will apparently
retain some existing commer-
cial operations, such as the
long-established Mr.
Goodburger restaurant and a

smear themselves in shaving

unexpectedly from holes on

LeCroy said she was at sta-
tion by 8:20 a.m. last week
and was on site until 2 p.m.,
after all the classes got a
chance to pass through.
Each class spent an hour
going through the maze of
water fun and even took part
in a picnic lunch.
This year, LeCroy aides
were Kathy Pearce, Linda
Reynolds, Rosemary Jowers
and custodian AKA lifeguard
Marvin Sowell. They also
relied on staff and faculty
from the school.
Reading from a letter, she
received from school princi-
pal Dana Williams, LeCroy
said, "We made a memory for
them (students)."
"They don't' remember a
lot of things about their
school days, but they'll
remember this."
LeCroy said Williams letter
indicated it was a great way
to end the school year.
"It's something that every
child can achieve," LeCroy
said, adding that the children
spend the year passing tests
and striving to achieve:
But in this case, "They did-
n't have to do anything -
everybody could succeed
and there was nothing but
smiles."
LeCroy said it's a goodbye
to school and hello to sum-
mer.

The county is also leasing the

Arrest made in Bushnell burglaries


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

The arrest of a Bushnell
teenager on May 13 has par-
tially cleared up a string of
recent burglaries and burgla-
ry attempts in the downtown
Bushnell business area.
The 17-year old was arrest-
ed on three counts of burgla-
ry and one count of grand
theft, according to Bushnell
Police Chief Joyce Wells.
Wells said she anticipates
that a second arrest will be
made shortly
"We're continuing an inves-
tigation and we have a second
suspect, we're putting the,
information together," she


said.
The teen was arrested after
he reportedly took food from
a shelf at the Dollar General
store on State Road 48 and
ate it without paying, accord-
ing to a Bushnell Police
Department report While the
teen was not charged in the
incident, during questioning
he informed Bushnell police
officers that he knew about
the string of burglaries in the
city.
During an interview with
police officers, the teen con-
fessed to burglarizing the
Creatiques Shop on E. Noble
Avenue between April 20 and
April 21, according to the
police report
During that burglary, a win-


dow was shattered and a side
entry door glass pane was
broken, according to police
reports. About $800 in cash
along with checks and
receipts was taken from the
register.
Most of the burglaries were
reported during the first
week of May and most of them
involved burglars entering
buildings or trying to enter
buildings by breaking doors
or windows, according to case
reports compiled by the
Bushnell Police Department
The earliest burglary hap-
pened in March at Citrus
Primary Care on Market
Street
In that burglary, a window
was broken and a prescrip-


tion pad and an unknown
amount of change were.
taken.
The May burglaries and
attempts started sometime
between Thursday, May 4,
and Monday, May 8, when
someone attempted to enter
the law office of James Wade
on Bushnell Plaza, according
to police reports.
Someone removed a win-
dow screen and opened a
window at the business but
could not gain access because
the window was too small, the
report states.
On Sunday, May 7, someone
attempted to break into a
business at 128 Bushnell
Plaza by breaking a window,
according to police reports.


"The unknown suspects
climbed up the wall and
looked into the area where
the glass was broken out but
did not attempt to go into the
building," the report states.
Also on Sunday May 7, bur-
glars attempted to enter two
antique stores in the city.
Lois Lynch Antiques on N.
Main Street and Jacobik
Antique Gallery, also on N.
Main Street, both had
attempted break-ins, accord-
ing to police reports.
Both businesses had
alarms sound about 8:30 p.m.
At Lynch Antiques, some-
one tried to break into the
store by using a two-by-four
piece of lumber to break
down the door, according to


reports. At Jacobik Antique
Gallery, glass had been bro-
ken out of a side door and
metal bars on the door were
bent "as if someone had
kicked the door."
Entry was not made at
either business, the reports
state.
Burglars were successful in
breaking into the Sumter
County Times office some-
time between Friday, May 5
and Monday, May 8.
An office window was bro-
ken and burglars entered tak-
ing about $120 from a cash
box, according to the report.
The burglars entered the
Times office again the follow-

Burn ban continues in -Sumter PoREPORT-


The ban was imposed by

the Commission in April


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

A sign reminds travelers
near the intersection of U.S.
301 and County Road 656
near Croom-a-Coochee that
Sumter County is under an
outdoor burning ban.
Despite a few days of rain
recently, the county will con-
tinue to remain under the
ban because of the extremely
dry weather conditions and
the high danger of wildfire.
The ban was imposed by
the County Commission in
April and will continue for an
indefinite period of time.
Because Croom is suscepti-
ble to fires during dry peri-
ods, community leaders
erected the sign to warn peo-
ple of the danger.
The Croom area can be
prone to fires during dry
times, said Sumter Fire
Services Chief Brad Burris.
"It's a wet swampy area and
when it dries out, it can cre-
ate some strong fires."


In Croom and other parts
of the county, all outdoor
burning is prohibited unless
permitted by the Division of
Forestry.
Permitted burns typically
involve land-clearing proj-
ects with land clearing
equipment and personnel.
monitoring the burn, Burris
said. "They are very con-
trolled conditions and the
state is being very strict with
permits."
The ban does not apply to
barbecues where a cooker is
being used, however, camp-
fires and bonfires are prohib-
ited.
If charcoal grills are used,
residents are urged to cover
the grills after use and make
sure coals are extinguished.
"Don't leave anything burn-
ing that could be a source of
ignition because the wind
can kick up and blow those
hot embers right out of the
grill," Burris said
For the most part, Sumter
residents are complying well


This sign along U.S. 301 at the intersection of County Road
656 near Croom-a-Coochee reminds travelers that a burn ban


isin effect for Sumter County.
with the ban, he said.
"We've been visiting unau-
thorized burns and telling
people to put them out," he
said.
"Most people cooperate
and some don't know that the
burning ban is in effect."
Fortunately, Sumter has
not had any serious fires dur-
ing the ban period, he said.
"But conditions are still ripe.
for that to happen."
According to a scale of
drought conditions, ranging
from 0 (for very wet condi-
tions) to 800 (for severe
drought), Sumter is rated at
559, Burris said.


"That means we're up in
the upper quarter of the
scale," he said. "So even
though we've gotten some
rain, it hasn't been enough to
keep things wet and reduce
the danger.
"Typically where we need
to be is less than 400 on the
scale."
Sumter isn't alone in its
burning ban. It is part of a
statewide burn ban, Burris
said.
"Until the ban is lifted,
we're asking everyone to be
very careful and to under-
stand that this is a statewide
problem."

thank you
For all the help
For all the South Sumter High
School graduates, I say THANKS! The
memorable speeches, the perfect
marching, the incredible voices from
)ur senior singers, and the overall
performances by all the seniors will
truly mark the Class of 2006 as one of
the very best to ever graduate from
South Sumter High School. I also
want to thank the seniors for my
'star." The certificate is framed and
will be a focal point in my classroom.
[ will actually have to keep that area
-lean all year so any new students will
)e able to see the famous "Cloud
Star." And finally, thanks to the out-
standing officers and executive coun-
cil for their dedication and service to
mur school and community. (It is
tuesday morning, and I keep thinking
you all will walk in at any moment
wanting your banana bread.)
I also want to say a special thanks to
the numerous teachers and staff who
all worked together to make the com-
mencement exercise so successful.
here is no way possible that over two
hundred seniors could have had a
perfect graduation ceremony without
the aid of over 30 dedicated and giv-
ing Raider teachers, administrators,
and staff. The custodians pulled extra
duty to ensure the gym was clean,
chairs lined and ready, and moving
plants into place. County
MIaintenance made sure all last
minute needs were met in setting up
he gym. While some gave finishing
painting touch ups, others found car-


pet tape!
Teachers, administrators, and staff
were ready to help in countless ways.
Whether being on stage, assisting as
ushers, helping in the library for the
closed circuit TV, frantically in the
lunchroom getting seniors ready, or
going over speeches, typing the pro-
grams, setting up the new sound sys-
tem, helping with senior chorus prac-
tices, organizing the ushers, assisting
with the marching in of the staff, I can
never say thank you enough to all
those who helped in their own special
way. Thanks especially to Cookie
Tadlock for the extra hours she has
given to this class all year. She attend-
ed all the Tuesday meetings, helped
with the fund-raisers (even in the
rain), and is without a doubt the best
senior co-sponsor in the world.
I also want to say a big thanks to all
the parents for their support through-
out this school year.
To the great class of 2006: I wish you
the very BEST!

Whose children are
more important?
When everyone agrees that our
e!d!!irii- ;r', ih',- future, itishard to
u.dit! -.Aliid why some people's
children are more important to the
future than others, For example;
the Sumter County Commission,
several weeks ago, agreed not to
seek pork money for a sports com-
plex for the children at the south-
ern end of the county Keep in mind
they did agree to ask for the pork
money to support two other proj-
ects that were beneficial not only to
Summer County, but Central Florida
in general. But when it comes to the
children of South Sumter, the pork
monies are not warranted,
i._-t,-i,.ini Di,,n. money has uh-(ea(l
been set aside by the federal gov-
ernment for such projects. But two
of our commissioners would not
agree to ask for the p)orik i iioy for
llhi:' project,
Can you believe that with the
majority rules" type of government
we are supposed to have, the two
no votes can rule the county? Well,
the decision on the pork money is
the proof. I can't understand why,
with the majority of the votes need-
ed, the rest of the commission
agreed to the (almost demand) that
the County not ask for the grant
monies to secure a sports complex
for South Sumter, but they did.
There was a verbal agreement by
at least one of the dissenting com-
missioners from the Villages that if
the rest of the Commission agreed
not to ask for the sports complex
pork money, he would support the
project if the County would pay for
it themselves. Well after a heated
debate, and unreasonable expecta-
tions by the Village commissioners,
the County approved the purchase
of a parcel of land for the- sports
complex.
The reason for the objection of
the project by the two commission-
ers from the Villages was if Webster
.wanted a sports complex, they
should pay for it themselves, and
not ask the County to bear the bur-
den, after all Wildwood and
Bushnell did. No one seemed to
care that Wildwood and Bushnell
are significantly larger, more afflu-
ent communities. They also sug-
gested that Webster levy another
tax on the residents of Webster to
pay for their complex. This coming
from Republicans, who are sup-
posed to be against higher taxes,
makes you want to laugh.
You would think it would be a
matter of pride for the entire com-
mission to be able to proceed,with
this much-needed project. With
well over 500 children involved in
baseball, soccer, football and all the
other activities, and only a few
places suitable to practice, let
alone host games, this project
should have been completed years
ago.
Even after the purchase of the
property was passed, by a vote of 3
to 2, the opposition by the Village
commissioners raged on. And
raged is the correct word to express
the behavior of Commissioner
Francis. The tirade exhibited by
this commissioner was, frankly,
embarrassing. It leaves you to won-
der just who is governing this coun-
ty, a group of reasonable, intelligent
men, or some spoiled, irrational
bullies who think their vote or
opinion is the only view that
counts, with dire consequences
vaguely threatened if not agreed
with.
With the passage of "One
Sumter," the County was supposed
to be united, with the confidence
that all residents would be repre-
sented equally by all commission-
ers. To me it seems just the oppo-
site has happened. As someone
who attends the County
Commission meetings regularly, it
is clear to see the divide between
the "North and the South" becom-
ing even more exaggerated. With
the next election looming ever
nearer, and the total confidence the
new commissioners elected will
owe their allegiance to the devel-
oper, the frustration of the minority
of the commissioners (at this time)


is becoming more eidernt.
The sports complex is just a
small part of the dissent festering
among residents and commission-
ers alike. Between the statement
made that there is no ongjin, g plan
to complete the project, and the
complex will "never fly," and the
allegations of unwise d,-r-isions by
former commissioners for some of
the major purchases made by the
County, some commissioners seem
to think they are the only ones with
intelligence enough to run the
county.
No one mentions the fact that if
these purchases were properly run
and maintained, the probability of
them being an asset to the County
would have been increased
immensely. But with neglect, and
dare I say sabotage, by the persons
in charge, the failure of several
major projects was inevitable.
Don't let the whole of Sumter
County go the way of Oxford. Do not
"go quietly into the sweet good-
night." Fight for your rights, fight
for your County, but most of all fight
for your children!

Open letter from
county resident
Mr Hoffman,
My name is Candice Arons and I
am a college student at Lake Sumter
Community College. I live in the
South end of the county just outside
of a small town called Center Hill. I
have a response to your statement
you made about the new sports com-
plex in Webster In case you have for-
gottein what was said, allow me to
help:
"Commissioners Michael Francis
and Dick Hoffman voted against the
park Hoffman said the people coun-
tywide will pay for a park that only
South Sumter residents will enjoy.
He suggested that cities interested
in parks should do what they can to
fund them. For instance, he said, if a
city has no money to pay for a park,
it could put in place a fee for new
construction to pay for it He also
said that existing parks in the coun-
ty are not used to their full potential.
Until these parks are at capacity, the
county should not fund any addition-
al parks."
It's apparent that you don't need
20/20 vision to see the difference
between the North end and the
South end of Sumter County. In my
opinion the main difference in this
county is that the people of the
South end are working people who
work long, hard hours to make a
decent living. People in the South
value the belongings they have and
work hard to keep them.
People in the North have worked
hard so they can retire. A huge
majority of the North, particularly
the Villages, have moved here from
various states and feel as if they can
control all that goes on in our coun-
ty.
I do feel that you, Mr. Hoffman, as
being a 'county commissioner'
should be concerned with the coun-
ty and not just yourself and the area
in which you live. With the mentality
of your position it seems that we are
fighting the Civil War again except
this time it's between the North and
South ends of Sumter County. You
were the driving force for the con-
cept of 'One Sumter,' yet you refuse
to extend that concept for day-to-day
operations.
I often consider businessman liars
for which they tell the customer
what they want to hear. Mr. Hoffman
the more I hear your thoughts the
more I think you don't say what you
mean and you don't mean what you
say. You cannot behave and think
this way when you're dealing with
people's happiness and more impor-
tantly people's lives. If people in the
South end of the County had the
resources as you in the North, we
would also have a community swim-
ming pool with water aerobics and
water ballet with golf cart paths to
take us from one place to another,
yet we need to beg for a community
basketball court to help those less
fortunate then yourselves.
Maybe you just haven't been fully


introduced into the county the way
that the people in the South have. I
can tell you from personal experi-
ence that the Kenny Dixon Sports
Complex in Bushnell is used on an
everyday basis. The South Sumter
High School uses that area as a
backbone for school activities, such
as when the soccer, track and field,
and long distance teams use the
track and when the girls' football
teams use the fields for practice.
Also which is a major importance is
where the seniors of that school
have their last picnic together
before graduation.
A'community' sports complex will
not just be utilized for those people
in South Sumter rather can be uti-
lized by all residents of the county
Perhaps we could put golf cart roads
in the South end so the people of the
Villages could enjoy it also: The chil-
dren of the South end will utilize
this park to its full extent. Most play
basketball in the streets because
they have nowhere to go in need of
an escape of day-to-day problems.
In response to your remark about
the fee for a new park or possibly a
tax on the people in the South to
help pay for it, I find it very bold of
you to suggest that, when the people
of the South, have been paying for
public roads in the North end of the
county so that you and its residents
can use their golf carts on roads in
which we pay and yet those with golf
carts don't have to have any insur-
ance, registration or tags on them.
The considerable thing for the res-
idents in the Villages to do is.to help
fund a community sports complex
for the residents of the county. Ifyou
feel so strongly about the South pay-
ing for its om things then perhaps,
we in the South should take away-
the money that supports your golf
cart roads, public roads, road main-
tenance and put it to some better
use, like imprc'ving our end of the
county which you so kindly neglect
I do have to however give a stand-
ing ovation to Randy Mask He
fought for this park and I strongly
believe this is what our area can use
as a stepping-stone for a better com-
munity. I hope that this sports com-
plex brings good things to the South
end of the county. Randy listened to
the people and stood up for them
and when you don't have a lot of
things it's hard to have someone do
that for you. I hope what I have writ-
ten has made a few meaningful
points and has helped you under-
stand a resident's point of view from
the South end of our county.
I hope you take the things I have
said into deep thought and consider-
ation.

Airboat Bill 1958
requires a veto ASAP
Consider the following;
An analysis of Airboat Bill 1958 in
simplified clarified form is as follows:
1. All airboats must be equipped
with an adequate or effective muffler.
2. All air boaters are not required to
use these mufflers.
3. All victims of airboat sound abuse
are restricted from utilizing any and
all means of obtaining relief other
than evacuating and becoming a
member of the airboat refugee group.
4. FWCC enforcement has nothing
to enforce as far as airboat sound
emission is concerned. Airboat Bill
1958 allows cutouts that cut away from
the muffler to allow raw sound to per-
meate the environment from engines
that could be as high as 700hp and
sound emissions as high as 140 deci-
bels.
Members of the Florida govern-
ment have made statements that the
air boaters must be able to enjoy their
"sport" and restrictions should not be
imposed to deny them this pleasure.
However, if secondhand cigarette
smoke can be restricted, shouldn't
secondhand sound from airboats be
restricted? I should be able to disal-
low both from entering my private
property. Airboat Bill 1958 does not
accomplish this.
Gov. Jeb Bush must veto this dra-
conian bill.

Rinker expansion request going to local boards


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Rinker/Florida Crushed
Stone mine in Center Hill is
once again attempting to
expand its operations by near-
ly 400 acres.
The company filed an appli-
cation with the county to
change 395 acres around the
existing mine from an agricul-
tural zoning category to allow
mining with a conditional use

Bushnell ready

to increase

safety belt use
The Florida Department of
Transportation, in conjunction
with the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA), are joining forces with
national, state and local law
enforcement agencies to
increase safety belt use. Among
those least likely to buckle up are
young males, pickup truck driv-
ers and their passengers, people
who live in rural areas, and
nighttime drivers. Although safe-
ty belt use increased to a record
82 percent nationally in 2005, less
than 74 percent of drivers and
passengers observed in Florida
were using their safety belts.
Even lower safety belt usage
rates were recorded for pickup
truck occupants (less than 62 per-
cent) and African American
males (51 percent) in Florida.
Failure to regularly use a safe-'
ty belt can be deadly During 2004
in Florida, 2,179 passenger vehi-
cle occupants died in traffic
crashes and more-than 62 per-
cent of those killed were not
using their safety belts at the
time of the crash. That's why
Bushnell Police Department
announced they are joining with
more than 12,000 other state and
local law enforcement and high-
way safety officials for another
aggressive national "Click It or
Ticket" mobilization to increase
safely belt use and reduce fatali-
ties on Florida's roadways.
"Safety belts clearly save lives.
But unfortunately too many peo-
ple in Florida still need a tough
reminder, so we are going to be
out in full force looking out for
those who are not buckled up,"
said Chief Joyce T. Wells.
"Remember, it doesn't matter if it
is day or night, click it or you will
get a ticket"
Safety belt saturation patrols
and other stepped-up law
enforcement activities will be
conducted during the national
"Click It or Ticket" enforcement
mobilization, which runs through
June 4 in Florida.
The mobilization is being sup-
ported by national and state
advertisements encouraging
everyone in Florida, but espe-
cially those that don't use their
safety belts, to always buckle up.
For more information on the
"Click It or Ticket Florida"
enforcement mobilization, visit

permit.
Efforts by the company to
expand its limerock mining
operations have been met
with opposition from area res-
idents who formed the group
CORE (Citizens Opposed to
Rinker's Expansion).
Rinker's last attempt to
expand ended with a 4-1 vote
by county commissioners to
deny the request at a six-hour
public hearing last October.
County Commissioner Joey
Chandler cast the only dis-


senting vote.
In November, commission-
ers voted 3-2 to give Rinker
another chance to appear
before the board after the
county received a letter from
Rinker arguing that the late
hour of the October hearing
did not allow representatives
from the company to suffi-
ciently address comments
made by the opposition.
In December, a lawsuit was
filed by Center Hill residents
challenging the board's deci-


sion to hear the request again.
Rinker's most recent appli-
cation for expansion is sched-
uled for review at the follow-
ing meetings:
Development Review
Committee, May 30 at 2 p.m. in
Room 327 of the Historic
Courthouse; Zoning and
Adjustment Board, June 12 at
6:30 p.m. in Room 222 of the
Historic Courthouse; and
Board of County
Commissioners, July 6 at 5:30
p.m. at the West Central


Florida Agriculture Center at
the Sumter County
Fairgrounds.
The Development Review
Committee meeting will be
open to the public but public
comment will not be allowed.
Comments will be heard at the
Zoning and Adjustment and
Board of County
Commissioners meetings.
Forty-four letters notifying
owners of properties within
500 feet of the proposed
expansion were mailed May

Scholarship recipients named by retired educators


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

The Sumter County
Retired Educators
Association met recently to
award their annual scholar-
ships, honor Sumter's top
teachers and work under
their new officers.
The meeting was held at
the First Baptist Church of
Bushnell and included a cov-
ered dish luncheon with
corn, fresh from the stalk.
This year's scholarship
recipients were Samantha
Cook and Crystal Cornet..
Each of the teens received a
$500 scholarship and both
are going into elementary
education.
The lunch was held
Thursday, May 4 and was the
last meeting until September.
"Most of our fund is done
in-house," said Horton
Barnes, treasurer.
He said they do a variety of
things including putting
change in a jar whenever
someone in the group has a
birthday. They do that
instead of sending cards.
They also hold an auction
during their membership
meetings and simply make
donations, rather than


depend on outside donations.
"It's strictly educators help-
ing young folks out," he said.
Every year, the students
they award scholarships are
nominated at the state level-
the state organization also
awards scholarships.
For the past four years,
both the state and the local
group provided scholarships
to Jessica Jocelyn a Sumter
student. Jocelyn should be in
the classroom by the upcom-
ing school year. <
The retired educators also
honored Sumter's Teacher of
the Year and nominees.
Wildwood High School's Dee

19, according to documents
filed with Sumter County
Planning and Zoning.
Residents have opposed the
expansion citing environmen-
tal and health concerns as
well as the mine's potential
effects on nearby structures
and property values. Several
residents, as well as some
county commissioners, have
been critical of the mine
because of some violations of
its permits from mining regu-
latory agencies.

Watermelon

Festival

Saturday

Sumter's first Watermelon
Festival is this Saturday, May
27, and fest-goers get rides,
food and fun for the family.
The fun starts at 9 a.m., and
lasts until 7 p.m., at the
Sumter County Fairgrounds
in Beville's Corner.
Along with watermelon
games, there'll be watermel-
on smoothies and watermel-
on.
Exhibitors will also be on
hand, showing off their wares
- concrete fountains, flags
and candles are all set for dis-
play by vendors.
While admission is $5 for
adults, $3 for children
between 3 and 12 and free for
kids under three, carnival
rides are free.
John and Brenda Curran, of
J and B Promotions, coordi-
nated the event and hoped to
see it become an annual
event.
The Watermelon Queens
are slated to appear and
there'll be contests, prizes
and more.
They'll even be a mechani-
cal bull to challenge and a
food court with a variety of
fair foods.
There'll be eight carnival
rides and something for all
ages.
The Sumter County Queens
Court and Branded Heart will
take to the stage and Potter's
House will coordinate addi-
tional performances for the
event.
Mrs. Curran said Cindy
Chevrolet has agreed to spon-
sor the carnival rides, so the
community rides for free.
And what's a watermelon
festival without watermelon?
Bass Farms made the donat-
ed of melons that'll make the
event a go.
A trip to the festival also
benefits individual families
in the community, because a
portion of the proceeds will
be donated to Habitat for
Humanity.
Other sponsors for the
event include Micki
Blackburn Realty, AmSouth
Bank and the Sumter County
Times.

tributed throughout the
region, and there will be an

ment tool. This professional

lizing CommunityLink's

Morley running for election at Circuit Judge


Michelle T Morley, an attor-
ney with offices in Bushnell
and Tavares, has announced
that she is running for elec-
tion for Circuit Judge. She
has named William Cauthen,
an attorney in Tavares, as her
Campaign Treasurer. The
election will be held on
September 5, 2005..
Morley is running for a
judicial vacancy created by
the retirement of long time
Circuit Judge Raymond T.
McNeal who has declared his
retirement effective at the
end of his term in January
2007. Although a Circuit
Judge could be assigned to
any one of Lake, Sumter,
Citrus, Marion or Hernando
counties, the position sought
by Morley will be transferred
to Lake and Sumter Counties
in January upon the reassign-
ment of Judge Willard I. Pope
to Ocala and Marion County
Morley announced her can-
didacy after having been
selected by the 5th Circuit
Nominating Commission last
year. She was one of three
finalists from over sixty appli-
cants. Her name was submit-
ted to Governor Bush for
appointment to a newly creat-
ed judicial position. That
seat was filled by Mark A.
Nacke, a four time nominee.
Being a judge has been a
long time career goal, accord-
ing to Morley and the honor of
having been one of the final-
ists out of a large group of
excellent lawyers a catalyst
for her decision to run. "This
is an important position and I
am humbled by the opportu-
nity to seek it. The people's


votes are important. Circuit
Judges preside over every-
thing from lawsuits involving
large amounts of damages to
death penalty cases," Morley
says. "I believe that my twen-
ty years of experience in all
phases of courtroom work
make me uniquely qualified
for this position. But, I hope
the voters will not make up
their minds based on a two or
three line introduction. I
hope they will ask the candi-
dates' clients, other lawyers,
and our friends, what they
think of us. Then decide
based on what they find out
about us from people who
know us well."
Morley has been practicing
law since 1986. She has han-
dled simple and complex
divorces, death penalty cases,
adoptions, construction prob-
lems, boundary disputes,
quiet title actions, probate,
guardianship, employment
discrimination, and a broad
spectrum of other types of
cases. She is certified by the
Florida Supreme Court as a
mediator in both family and
civil circuit law cases. She is
an experienced arbitrator
and presently serves on the
Lemon Law arbitration board
in Orlando. She lives in
Bushnell where her office is
located. She has maintained
another office in Tavares
since 1986.
A long time community
activist. Morley is a member
and Vice-Chair of the Board
of Directors at Thomas E.
Langley Medical Center;, in
Sumterville. Langley is a
non-profit organization that


,provides medical care for the
medically underserved in
Sumter, Lake, Citrus and
Hernando counties. She is a
ten year member of the Lake
County Sheriffs volunteer
Mounted Posse. She is a
member of the Legal
Assisting Advisory Committee
at Lake Sumter Community
College where she has been
an adjunct instructor since
1987. She has also served on
the Rules and Procedures
Committee at Lake Sumter
Community College. She has
served on the Florida Bar's
Grievance Committee and the
Professionalism Committee.
She is a member of the Lake-
Sumter American Inn of
Court which is committed to
professionalism in the prac-
tice of law. Her hobbies
include horseback riding,
weight training, kayaking and
cooking.
Morley is married to Judge
T Michael Johnson, a Circuit
Judge since 1995. Asked if
Morley considers her hus-
band's position an advantage
or disadvantage to her candi-
dacy, she replies, "There is
only one Circuit Judge to a
courtroom, so we will never
preside in the same court or
work together on the same
cases. People recognize that.
My husband is one of the
finest, most respected judges
in our circuit. He is an excel-
lent role model for any new
judge. I consider our rela-
tionship a great advantage"

Wildwood Wildcats show vulnerability in Spring Classic


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

There was at least one thing
the Wildwood High football
team learned from the Spring
Classic game last Thursday
against Nature Coast
Technical High School.
If a Wildcat can grab a fum-
ble, they have some players
who can run it back
Inside linebacker Carlton
Bailey took a loose ball and


returned it 11 yards for a
score with 6:18 left in the sec-
ond quarter. Later, outside
linebacker Tadrain Williams
grabbed another loose ball
and returned it 20 yards for
another score.
Offensively, quarterback
DeAndre Mitchell scored on a
QB keeper. He ran 39 yards
for a score, weaving his way
through the Sharks' defense
for the touchdown. The score
was the final touchdown as
Nature Coast topped


Wildwood 29-20 in three quar-
ters of varsity play.
The game was basically a
practice but Wildwood was
vulnerable to the "long
bomb."
Nature Coast quarterback
Josh Ortiz hit Stephen Pelaez
for touchdown passes of 54
and 66 yards. Ortiz also ran
five yards for another score.
Wildwood head football
coach Robert Lindsey was
looking for signs of improve-
ment in his young squad. His


2005 team had a 2-8 mark.
"I thought offensively, we
were able to execute,"
Lindsey said. '"At times, we
made big plays and at times,
we made big errors. We saw
what we wanted to see."
Lindsey said he wanted to
check out the better player for
the quarterback position.
DeAndre Mitchell and Alan
Sparkman both ran the shot-
gun option offense. Mitchell
had the final scoring run.
Lindsey said he would have to


check the film to decide who
was the better signal caller.
He felt both did well.
'Defensively, we ran to the
football well," the coach said.
"We got fatigued once or
twice. They ran an offense we
are not familiar with."
Wildwood ran for 72 yards
on 24 carries. The Wildcats
were only able to complete
three of 11 pass attempts for
27 yards. Two of the passes
were picked off for intercep-
tions.


By contrast, the Sharks
were able to run 30 times for
145 yards. The Sharks com-
pleted eight of 14 passes for
217 yards.
"We hurt ourselves with the
passing," Lindsey said.
The Wildcats will have the
summer to recover and they
will return to school in
August.
By that time, this Spring
Classic will be a distant and
probably unmemorable
practice.

Is Leavitt's approach correct for HHS? Counselor of Year


Critics of block grant believe it decreases benefits for low-income citizens


In the fall of 2004, after the
appointment of an insur-
ance broker as Secretary
of Health and Human
Services (HHS), I
wrote the follow-
ing:
Former
Environmental
Protection Agency
(EPA) administra-
tor and former
Utah governor "O
Mike Leavitt, self-
funded his political
career.
Leavitt was chief
operating officer of
the Leavitt Group, IRo
a family business
founded by his
father more than 50 years
ago.
The Leavitt Group is a 100-
plus chain of independent
insurance brokerage agen-
cies, marketing both person-
al and property-liability lines
of insurance, everything
from life insurance to med-
ical malpractice insurance,
workers' compensation to
Medicare supplements,
Leavitt has not been actively
involved in the family-held
business since 1992, although
he oi\\ns one-seventh or the
Leavitt Group.
:"The sale of Medicare sup-
plements account for a very
small percentage of the
group's overall profit. But
still. Leavitt is a poor choice
for this' particular cabinet;
position.


"His Utah Medicaid poli-
cies formed guidelines for
national Medicaid policy
"Leavitt is a believer in


revamping the
present Medicaid
program to a
"block grant" pro-
gram, (or some
derivative). A
block grant pro-
gram would allow
the various states
to implement
Medicaid in a man-
ner of each state's
needs and without
the hindrance of
federal restric-
tions and regula-
tions. Many critics


)AN
MHAN


of a block grant approach
believe that it would
decrease benefits for the low-
income blocks of citizens,
although it would create ben-
efits for those not presently
receiving them."
And indeed, it has; and
sadly, it shall continue.
Earlier this year, Gov. Jeb
Bush of Florida, working
closely with the HHS Czar.
and the administration,
effectively privatized that
state's Medicaid program by
turning it into an HMO. Mind
you, there are a score of state
governors watching this pro-
gram.
"Leavitt will support the
future privatization of
Medicare, the change of the
AMedicaid relationship.
between the federal and


state governments. He will
oppose stem cell research
and the purchasing of re-
imported prescription drugs
from other countries. I also
believe that he will do much
to clean up the mess at the
Federal Food and Drug
Administration (FDA)."
Was I so naive just 18
months ago? The near three-
decade long politicization of
the FDA has shamefully con-
tinued, increased and wors-
ened.
As of today and as I wrote
the previous column, we do
not now nor did we then have
a permanent commissioner
of the FDA.
We had a commissioner for
a couple of months during
this intermittent time frame.
However, there is talk that he
may, note may be soon indict-
ed; perhaps several past per-
manent commissioners.
This has nothing to do with
Leavitt directly, but the FDA
is part of his watch.
I don't question Leavitt's
integrity, just his lackluster
management approach.
Back to the previous col-
umn:
"I am more than willing to
give Leavitt the opportunity
to show his leadership for the
95 million Americans cur-
rently enrolled in Medicare
and Medicaid programs.
However the overall prece-
dent of appointing someone
from either the pharmaceuti-i
cal industry or the private'


insurance industry as HHS
head is not a good idea."
Quite unfortunately, he has
not shown his leadership for
"we, the people," but rather
his sightless loyalty to those
that he truly serves.
And, was it is it a good
idea to allow appointments
to those who already are in
the business of the govern-
ment agency that one will
oversee?
Show me the wisdom of
appointing an insurance bro-
ker as head of the HHS or a
veterinarian as

For the past three years
Lake-Sumter Community
College "CROP" program has
held a "Scholarship and
Recognition" banquet.
Each year the event brings
together hundreds of stu-
dents, parents, LSCC staff,
community leaders, area high
school counselors, principals
and others.
The students come out for
this gala ,event adorned in
evening gowns and suits,
which shows their commit-
ment, and value to the pro-
gram.
The CROP program manag-
er is Mr. Kevin Brown who is
also a proud "honor" gradu-
ate of South Sumter High.
CROP is a recurring pro-
gram that has been serving at-
risk Lake and Sumter County
youth continuously since
1986. Each year, LSCC tries to
encourage new supporters
abroad. Our track record is
proven and the success rates
are at an all-time high. This
past fiscal year there we 35
seniors in our program and all-
35 have been accepted to a
post-secondary institution.
Each year approximately
200 students participate in the
College Reach-Out Program
at Lake-Sumter Community
College: Students explore the
possibilities of, and prepare
for, college academic studies.
A variety of workshops are


Mona Oliver
conducted that cover topics
from FCAT preparation to
technology training to improv-
ing skills.
Students will tour local
businesses, conduct mock job
interviews; attend after
school tutorial classes and
some Saturday sessions.
This year several students
from South Sumter received
scholarships from the CROP
program and Ms. Mona Oliver
received the "Counselor of
the Year" award. This is her
second year in a row receiving
this auspicious award.
SMs. Oliver goes above and
beyond the call of duty to
ensure that all of the CROP
students at South Sumter

Helpful tips for keeping your bagged lunches safe


As the school year winds
down, children will be
carrying bag lunches to
summer
activities
or on pic-

informa-

also good
for any-
one car-
rying a
bag lunch
to work
MARTHA As par-
MADDOX ents, we
MADo want to


be sure that food brought
from home is kept safe. This
article has tips to help ensure
the food remains safe.
After safely packing your
lunch, it must be kept cold
until lunch. That's because
harmful bacteria multiply
rapidly in the danger zone -
the temperatures between 40
and 140 degrees F Perishable
food transported without an
ice source won't stay safe
long.
Begin with Safe Food
Perishable food, such as
raw or cooked meat and poul-
try, must -be kept cold or


frozen at the store and at
home. When carrying perish-
able food home, transport it
as fast as possible when no
ice source is available. Once
home, the food must be kept
cold.
Keep Everything Clean
Wash your hands before
you prepare or eat food. Wash
cutting boards, dishes, uten-
sils, and countertops with
hot, soapy water after prepar-
ing each food item and before
you go on to the next item.
Don't Cross-Contaminate
Harmful bacteria can
spread throughout the


kitchen and get onto cutting
boards, utensils, and counter-
tops. Always use a clean cut-
ting board. When preparing
sandwiches, use separate
cutting boards for food that
will not be cooked and a sep-
arate one for raw meat, poul-
try and luncheon meats.
Packing Lunches
Pack just the amount of
perishable food that can be
eaten at lunch. In this hurry
up world we live in we are
always looking for shortcuts.
It's fine to prepare the food
the night before and store the
packed lunch in the refriger-


ator. Freezing sandwiches
helps them stay cold.
However, for best quality,
don't freeze sandwiches con-
taining mayonnaise, lettuce
or tomatoes. Package these
and add before eating.
Insulated, soft-sided lunch
boxes or bags are best for
keeping food cold, but metal
or plastic lunch boxes and
paper bags can also be used.
If using paper lunch bags,
create layers by double bag-
ging to help insulate the
food.
An ice source should be
packed with perishable food


in any type of lunch bag or
box.
Keeping Cold Lunches Cold
To keep lunches cold away
from home, include a small
frozen gel pack or frozen
juice box. Some foods are
safe without a cold source.
Items that don't require
refrigeration include fruits,
vegetables, canned meat,
breads, crackers, peanut but-
ter, jelly, mustard and pickles.
For more information on
nutrition and keeping food
safe contact the Sumter
County Extension Office at
352-793-2728.

Integrated Pest Management

How does it affect the homeowner?


In past years the home-
owners and small farm-
ers were the ones that
used pesticides indiscrimi-
nately As the homeowners,
the farmers and hopefully all
of us are learning and under-
standing more about the dan-
gerous side of pesticides, we
are getting help from the
University of Florida
UF/IFAS, University of
Florida/Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences is pro-
moting IPM, which includes
scouting programs and the
use of beneficial insects to
reduce the need for pesticide
on crops and ornamentals.
The following are recommen-
dations from the IPM pro-
gram.
As an alternative to routine
pesticide application,
UF/IFAS Extension is pro-
moting the use of integrated
pest management (IPM)
strategies, which includes
biological control. These
methods are emphasized by
Extension because of
Florida's unique environ-
,ment, pest problems, agricul-
tural production systems and
rapid urban growth.
Extension provides up-to-
date information to commer-
cial producers on all aspects
of IPM, including the use of
field scouting programs to
detect pests early and pre-
serve natural enemies by
using chemical control meas-
ures only when needed. As a
result, IPM programs that
include biorational and bio-
control practices now are the
preferred pest management
strategy in agriculture, struc-
tural pest control, natural
resources and public health.
To educate commercial
producers about integrated
pest management (IPM)
strategies, including effective
"scouting" methods (check-
ing plants for pests before
using pesticides or other con-
trols), UF/IFAS Extension
has provided annual training
programs in Central Florida
during the past six years. The
popular four-day program,
which attracts participants
from as far away as Georgia,
is a cooperative effort of Lake
and Orange counties.
Participants say the program
helps them improve record
keeping and reduce pesticide
use by as much as 60 percent
Thanks to UF/IFAS
Extension urban pest control
programs, Florida residents
are no longer faced with the
choice of being exposed to
pesticides or living with pests
that contaminate, food, trans-
mit disease and cause aller-


gies. In fact, Extension edu-
cation and demonstration
programs have revolution-
ized Florida's 1.6 billion-a-
year pest control industry
Effective new technologies
such as insect growth regula-
tors, repellants and traps are
reducing the need for con-
ventional pesticides and pro-
tecting residents from unnec-
essary chemical exposure.
Pesticide use in schools has
been a special, concern
because children are more
susceptible to pesticides than
adults. Thanks to Extension
workshops on integrated pest
management (IPM), all school
districts are familiar with the
advantages of this pest con-
trol program. As a result, IPM
programs are now being used
in two-thirds of all Florida
school districts. The UF/IFAS
Extension school IPM pro-
gram helped one school dis-
trict save $2 million in legal
fees.
"Termites and Proper
Construction Practices" and
"Trees and Construction" are
two new Extension education
modules completed with
grants from the Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services and
the USDA Forest Service.
The modules are designed
for building officials, contrac-
tors and architects. Since
subterranean termites cause
more than $500 million worth
of damage in Florida each
year, the modules will reduce
the cost of controlling this
pest.
Plant clinics are held at the
extension office in Sumter
County 793-2728 on
Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m., as well as 1 to 4 p.m., on
the first Monday of every
month at the Sumter County
Annex on County Road 466.
A Florida Friendly
Landscaping Series is pre-
sented every second
Thursday by Master

Gator hunters get


At its February 2006 meeting,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) approved changes to the
statewide alligator harvest pro-
gram to offer alligator hunters
a longer season and a chance to
buy multiple permits during
this year's hunts.
Starting this year, the season
will include 41 additional hunt-
days and will run Aug. 15 to
Nov. 1.
Hunters also will be able to
purchase additional permits if
." -


available, but they can pur-
chase only one permit per
transaction. More than 4,000
alligator harvest permits will
be available on a first-come,
first-served basis.
Sale of these permits begins
at 10 a.m. (EDT) June 15.
Applicants have their prefer-
ence of applying at any county
tax collector's office, license
agent (retail outlet that sells
hunting and fishing licenses),
online at MyFWC.com/license
or by calling toll-free 1-888-

employees at the Wildwood
facility teamed up to prepare
for the unthinkable.
Members of the SCFR
SERT team responded to the
facility prepared to extricate
an injured employee from a
confined space in a simulated
emergency drill.
CYD employees and mem-
ber of the SERT Team joined
together to make the drill as
lifelike as possible. Members
of the SERT team carefully
measured the air quality in
the small space that held the


employee.
After all the safety equip-
ment was set in place, the
SERT Team members were
lowered into the space with
the employee to assess for
injuries and stabilize his con-
dition before hoisting him out
of the small space.
When the mock exercise
was completed, Sumter
County Battalion Chief G.M.
Jacobs praised Conrad
Yelvington Distributors for
their pro-active stance on
safety in the workplace and
stressed the importance and
value of these types of exer-
cises for fire rescue.

ing their hunts. At the same
time we changed the rule to
allow individuals to be
issued more than one alliga-
tor harvest permit.
These changes are part of
our population management
program.
Some people have asked if
alligator-mating season -
May through mid-June is a
significant factor in alligator
bite statistics.
It is not.
What is significant is the
fact that warm weather caus-
es alligators to become more
active at the same time peo-
ple are spending more time
in and on the water.
Since 1948 there have been
17 confirmed fatalities asso-
ciated with alligators.
(This number does not
include the three most
recent fatalities, which are
still under investigation.)
As terrible as these
tragedies are, they do not
represent an overall threat to
the general public.
I want to remind
Floridians to stay alert when
recreating in and around
fresh water, but at the same
time I think it is important
for Floridians to feel confi-
dent that Florida wildlife is
truly one of our state's great-
est treasures.

more about alligators, go to

FWC LISTINGS


Florida Wildlife Commission answers questions about listing species


What are the current criteria
used for listing species in the
state of Florida?
The FWC listing process is
driven by Florida-specific data
and clear standards consisting
of measurable biological crite-
ria, peer reviewed by panels of
experts, agreed upon by FWC's
Commissioners, and strength-
ened by species-specific man-
agement plans that are tai-
lored to the unique conditions
and needs of each species. To
view the criteria, see the defi-
nition section of the con-
densed rules at:
http://myfwc.com/imperiled-
species/listingproceduresand-
definitions.pdf
What is the FWC's listing
process and how does it work?
The listing process is a peti-
tion-initiated process the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) uses to classify imper-
iled wildlife species in
Florida. There are three
imperiled species classifica-
tions: endangered, threatened,
and species of special concern.
The imperiled species list clas-
sifications identify those
species facing the greatest risk
of extinction, they do not dic-
tate the level of protection a
species receives.
The process follows this out-
line:
An external or internal indi-
vidual or group can petition to
have a species classification
reviewed.
Once the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
accepts a petition, a team of
FWC biologists and non-FWC
professionals conduct a biolog-
ical status review following the
FWC's listing process.
The biological status review
team is comprised of 3, 5, or 7
biological and professional
experts, most of which are not
with the FWC.
The classification recom-
mendations are peer reviewed
by other biologists to see if
they agree.
The peer-reviewed classifi-
cation recommendations are
presented before the FWC's
Commissioners at a meeting
open to the public.
If the recommendation is
abbcpted, a detailed manage-
ment plan and' recommended
rule changes for each species
are developed, with public
input, to guide species recov-
ery.
No change in status will
occur until the FWC's
Commissioners approve the
management plan and vote on
species-specific rules recom-
mended in the plan.
Development of the plan can
take more than a year.
Why does the FWC use this.
listing process?
From 1972 through 1999,
Florida's listing process was
an intuitive process with no
fixed criteria and no standard-
ized formal review process.
There was no listing process
rule, the definitions were con-
sidered somewhat vague, and
listing actions were done
through rule changes.
Questions were raised on
this process and the Game and
Freshwater Fish Commission
(GFC) agreed to improve it. At
that time, the GFC implement-
ed a self-imposed moratorium
on listing actions from 1994
until a new process would be
approved.
In 1998, the GFC appointed
an 11-member stakeholder
panel (a mix of environmental,
development, agricultural and
recreational user groups) to
review the issues and provide
a list of desired characteristics
for a listing process.
Staff used the stakeholder
input to draft the process,
which was adopted in 1999,
and supported by the stake-
holders with no major objec-
tions. The 1999 process was
adopted by the GFC just prior
to the constitutionally mandat-
ed merger, and therefore did
not address marine species. As
a result, the newly formed
FWC reconvened the
Stakeholder Panel in
September 2002 with new
marine membership to
address concerns during
implementation of the 1999
process and new marine issues
the agency faced, and issued a


moratorium on reviewing list-
ed species.
As a result in April 2005, the
FWC adopted the new IUCN
criteria, the IUCN regional
guidelines, and other modifi-
cations, which have been test-
ed by the scientific community
worldwide. In fact, at least 30
countries are using IUCN stan-
dards as the basis for their own


imperiled species classifica-
tion process.
The FWC listing process is
driven by Florida-specific data
and clear standards consisting
of measurable biological crite-
ria, peer reviewed by panels of
experts, agreed upon by FWC's
Commissioners, and strength-
ened by species-specific man-
agement plans that are tai-
lored to the unique conditions
and needs of each species.
When will the biological sta-
tus reviews be completed?
The final peer-reviewed bio-
logical status review of the
bald eagle, Florida manatee,
gopher tortoise and Panama
City crayfish are toube present-
ed at the June 2006 meeting of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Will all biological status
reviews be identical?
No. The biology, life history
and available data on each
species vary greatly Species
experts, both within and out-
side of the FWC, will use the
best available science, data
and information for each
species review. In addition, the
reviews will consider the
unique risks each species
faces so that the appropriate
imperilment category is iden-
tified. To strengthen this
review recommendation, all
information and findings will
be evaluated by different inde-
pendent scientists to ensure
that the biological review
panel made sound science-
based decisions/recommenda-
tions.
If the FWC's Commissioners


decide that a reclassification
change is warranted, when
will this change occur?
The status change for any
species will occur only after a
species management plan is
developed, professionally and
publicly reviewed, and accept-
ed by the FWC's
Commissioners. The develop-
ment of a species management
plan can take more than a year.
What does it mean if a
species is reclassified from
"endangered" to "threat-
ened?"
A reclassification from
"endangered" to "threatened"
means that a species is no
longer in imminent danger of
extinction, but still has a very
high risk of extinction. It also
means that the species' biolog-
ical data no longer meet the
criteria for endangered, but
they do meet the criteria for
threatened.
If a species is reclassified,
does it mean that species pro-
tections change?
It could. The classification
categories in Florida's listed
species rule describe the rela-
tive risk of extinction, not level
of protection. The protections
for any reclassified species
will be defined in a species-
specific management plan that
guides species recovery.
Why is the FWC evaluating
the status of the bald eagle,
gopher tortoise, manatee and
Panama City crayfish?
The FWC received petitions
to assess the status of the bald
eagle, gopher tortoise, mana-
tee, and Panama City crayfish


from 2001-03. In April 2005, the
listing process was updated
and the Commission directed
staff to evaluate these species
under the new listing process
rules. All four biological status
reviews are expected to be
completed in June 2006.
How long have the manatee
and bald eagle been protected
in Florida?
Florida's manatee protec-
tion laws date back to 1893.
The bald eagle has been pro-
tected since 1940.
Bald Eagle
The bald eagle is a true
wildlife success story. When
the FWC first starting monitor-
ing eagle nesting in the 1970's,
there were only 88 known
nests. Today, there are more
than 1,100 known nests, and
these occur over most of the
state.
Will the bald eagle be pro-
tected if it is removed from the
state threatened list?
Yes. Any species moving on,
off or within the list requires a
species-specific management
plan that includes species-spe-
cific regulations required for
the continued protection of the
species, when appropriate.
The goal of the management
plan is to ensure continued
recovery of the species.
In addition, the Bald eagle is
currently protected by the
Federal Endangered Species
Act, the Bald and Golden Eagle
Protection Act, and the
Migratory Bird Treaty Act
What is the US Fish &
Wildlife Service doing about
bald eagles?


In 1999, the USFWS
released their findings that the
bald eagle had met or exceed-
ed all recovery goals for the
species, and that the species
warranted removal from the
threatened species list. On
Thursday February 16, 2006,
the USFWS re-advertised
their plans to remove the bald
eagle from the federal threat-
ened list, and advertised the
proposed guidelines for pro-
tecting the bald eagle under
the Bald and Golden Eagle
Protection Act.
To see the proposed Federal
guidelines and the notice of
intent to remove the bald eagle
from the threatened species
list, visit
http://www.fws.gov/northflori-
da/BaldEagles/bald-
eagles.htm
What numbers were used to
justify the recommendation to
remove the bald eagle from the
State Imperiled Species List?
Following the listing process
rule, a biological review panel
compared the latest informa-
tion on bald eagles in Florida
to the listing criteria for
"endangered," "threatened,"
and "species of special con-
cern." This evaluation con-
cluded the bald eagle did not
meet the criteria for listing in
any of the imperilment cate-
gories.
Gopher Tortoise Specific
What is a gopher tortoise?
A gopher tortoise (Gopherus
polyphemus) is a large land
turtle that, as its name sug-
gests, lives underground in a
burrow. Adults can weigh up to


15 pounds and average 9-11
inches long, but some can get
up tol5 inches long. They live
throughout Florida, but prefer
high, dry, sandy places such as
longleaf pine sandhills, xeric
oak hammocks, scrub, pine
flatwoods, dry prairies and
coastal dunes.
How are gopher tortoises
doing?
Gopher tortoises live in
many parts of Florida, but
their numbers are declining.
FWC biologists estimate that
their numbers have gone down
by 60-80 percent in the last
century mainly because the
places they live have been
taken over by human develop-
ment.
Gopher tortoises have been
around for about 60 million
years, but biologists who study
these ancient reptiles are con-
cerned they may disappear
from many areas unless more
is done to protect them and
preserve the habitat they
need.
Are gopher tortoises protect-
ed in Florida?
The gopher tortoise has
been listed as a Species of
Special Concern in Florida
since 1979. Right now, it is ille-
gal to kill, harass, injure, pos-
sess, transport, relocate or sell
gopher tortoises or their eggs,
or destroy their burrows, with-
out a permit from the FWC.
FWC biologists are recom-
mending the FWC commis-
sioners reclassify the gopher
tortoise from a species of spe-
cial concern to a threatened
species.

Confederate Memorial Service held as traditional honor


The observance of a
Memorial Day has become a
tradition in our country.
Whether it is observed on
April 26, June 3, or May 30,
patriotic citizens everywhere,
North and South, pause to pay
tribute to our soldier dead.
The setting aside of one day a
year to place beautiful flowers
on the graves of our fallen sol-
diers is evident of our grati-


tude for their noble sacrifice.
This is even more meaningful
today as our service men and
women are fighting on foreign
soil again.
A lovely lady of Columbus,
Ga., Miss Elizabeth
Rutherford, who was a mem-
ber of the Ladies Aid Society,
is generally credited with hav-
ing conceived the idea of a
designated day for a Memorial


Day. According to official
records, the first Confederate
Decoration Day was observed
in Columbus, Ga., on April 26,
1866, the first anniversary of
Gen. J.E. Johnston's surrender
of the Army of Tennessee at
Greensboro, N.C.
For Sumter County, the
Confederate Memorial Day
services were at 11 a.m.,
Saturday, April 22, at Slone's


Ridge Cemetery in Groveland.
The event is sponsored by the
Granville Seville Chapter
2234 of The United Daughters
of The Confederacy
As part of the program,
Joyce White presented a brief
history on the origin of
Confederate Memorial Day,
and Mary Harrison read "Why
I Am a Daughter of The
Confederacy."


Three UDC sisters, Betty
Watkins, Marjorie Coverston
and Eudora Cowart, were
remembered, as well as the
Confederate soldiers who are
buried in the Slone's Ridge
Cemetery. Taps was sung by
Mary Harrison in memory of
all soldiers of all wars. After
the service, the group enjoyed
a picnic at the home of Peggy
Sloan.

Bootsie with the big gold eyes


Beautiful Bootsie with
the big gold eyes. She is
a 2-V2 year old
Tuxedo/Manx mix. Bootsie is
very shy and takes a while to
warm up to you, but then is
very sweet She needs a quiet
home with an understanding
person who will let her know
she is loved. If you would like
to give Bootsie the love she
needs, e-mail the Humane
Society/SPCA of Sumter
County at: humane@sum.net
or mail in your request to: PO.
Box 67, Lake Panasoffkee, Fl.
33538.
Florida learned a hard les-
son back in 1992 when it
received a direct hit from
Hurricane Andrew. Back
then, there was no plan in
place to help animals and
people with their pets.
Citizens with pets had
nowhere to go, or no way to
find their lost pets. It became
apparent that pets were fami-
ly members to many citizens,.
yet there was no help for
them. That is when the
Humane Society of the United
States became the lead agency
for Florida's Department of
Agriculture in dealing with
animals in disasters. That is
when the conception of DART
(Disaster Animal Response
Team) was formulated.
Florida has a disaster plan
in place and a volunteer base
to implement it. But many
other states are not prepared,
as was seen in Hurricane
Katrina. Disturbing images in
the aftermath of the storm of
pets being pulled from the
arms of their owners, injured
and starving animals left
behind because there was
nowhere to take them to safe-
ty, and many people who
refused to go with rescuers
because they could not take
their cat or dog with them.
Hurricane victims were
forced to choose between sur-
vival and their pets. These
images made it clear that
helping animals in disasters
helps people in disasters too.
Hurricane Katrina has
brought to light the need for
legislation to include a nation-
al pet evacuation policy.


Currently, two bills coming
before congress would
require states and communi-
ties to have a disaster plan
that includes pets to be eligi-
ble to receive FEMA funds.
The Pets Evacuation and
Transportation Standards act
includes:
Hr3858 which requires dis-
aster preparedness plans to
take into account the needs of
individuals with pets and
service animals.
S2548 authorizes FEMA to


make financial contributions
to states and communities for
animal preparedness purpos-
es, including construction,
leasing, or renovating emer-
gency shelter facilities to
accommodate people with
pets.
Send a message to your
state representatives to sup-
port these bills, and hopefully,
never again will people be
forced to choose between sur-
vival and leaving their pets
behind.

A Gold Mine in Bedroom Drawers


Newswire: People are selling their old
scrap gold that is gathering dust for
its cash value because gold prices
are so high. With the price of gold at a
25 year high (over $700.00 per ounce),
it makes sense. GoldKit.com, a
gold recycler, offers free insured
recycle kits so people may cash in their
scrap with 24 hour service and
guarantee satisfaction. They accept


broken and outdated items like
chains, charms, rings and more.
"Everyone has bits of gold just lying
around which can be turned into cash"
says Richard Zakroff, VP of
marketing. "Even old dental gold has
value." GoldKit.com processes over
10,000 recycle Kits per month.
People can get a free GoldKit
at 1-800-283-4700 or GoldKitcom.

Beetle program for


landowners to begin


The program is
supported through
temporary grants
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced that
on May 1 the department's
Division of Forestry began
offering a new Southern Pine
Beetle Prevention Cost Share
Program to eligible non-
industrial private forest
landowners.
The goal of this program is
minimize southern pine bee-
tle damage in Florida by help-
ing forest landowners reduce
the susceptibility of their pine
stands to this destructive
insect pest.
Periodic southern pine bee-
tle outbreaks in Florida have
resulted in millions of cubic
feet of pine timber killed on
many thousands of acres.
Forest management prac-
tices, such as thinning and


prescribed burning, can
improve the health of pine
stands and decrease their
likelihood of developing
southern pine beetle infesta-
tions.
The minimum tract size
requirement is 10 acres and
funding requests may not
exceed $10,000.
For an application and
more information on program
requirements and proce-
dures, visit your local Division
of Forestry office.
Contact information for the
county forester office in your
area is available at
http://www.fl-dof.com.
Applications cannot be sub-
mitted before May 1 and will
be evaluated on a first-
received, first-served basis.
The program is supported
through temporary grants
from the USDA Forest
Service and will be offered
only as long as funding is
available.

afternoon and the store own-
ers would hook up to their
boat and head out to the lake
to get in on the action. The
bedding season for the most
part would start on or around
the full moon in March if the
weather was decent and the
fishing would be great for a
couple of days on either side
of the full moon. Every now
and then, if the weather
warmed up just right, it might
be on the new moon in March
or April when the brim would

there were close to a dozen

fishermen who came to Lake

a few are still in business and

sets on Lake Panasoffkee over
the years while taking care of
the thousands of guests who
have fished out of their camp.
It has not always been well
with Lake Panasoffkee howev-
er and sometime during the
early seventies all of a sudden
the fishing, for some reason,
began to fall off dramatically.
The fishing continued on a
downhill slide until a few
years ago when Jim Veal, Billy
Merritt and several other con-
cerned residents around Lake
Panasoffkee got a hold of our
state Representative Everett
Kelly and a committee was
formed that got some needed
help from the state to ascer-
tain what was wrong with the
lakes' fishing and to then get


the necessary help from the
state agencies to cure the
problems the lake was having.
History will record that-the
work the state carried out
while working closely the
committee brought the fishing
back in Lake Panasoffkee.
However that is another story
in itself when good folks work-
ing with government agencies
that really care can get a job
done.
As far as Bill and Buddy,
they caught plenty of fish for
their fish fry and I can vouch
for the fact that both the
Merritt brothers can still cook
brim up mighty fine and
Buddy Merritt is still the south
end of Sumter County's num-
ber one hush-puppy maker.
