Cops: Killer had




murder in mind


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

"Whoever went there, went
there to kill," said Sumter
sheriff's Capt. Gary Brannen
of the murders of Esperanza
"Hopey" Wells and Margarita
Ruiz.
"He encountered Margarita
-at the door and he started
shooting. He doesn't steal any-
thing, he doesn't molest the
women," Brannen said of the
double murders in 2000.
In all the evidence gathered
from a killer's plan, there was
another unusual piece of
information a vicious piece.
Both women died from gun-
shot wounds, but they were
stabbed repeatedly in the
neck after they were dead,
Brannen said.


"It was almost like a signa-.
ture and come to find out it
was."
The murders occurred on
the morning of March 15
while Wells, 42, and her moth-
er, 72, watched two younger
relatives in the family home
in Tarrytown. Both women
were shot to death, but the
children, ages one and three,
were uninjured.
Authorities have investigat-
ed numerous leads over the
past six years, including infor-
mation they got from the chil-
dren. While some of the infor-
mation from the children did-
n't take them anywhere, the
oldest, a girl, stayed true with
her information on the color
of the car, according to
Brannen.
Back in 2000 she told
authorities that the suspect

jail cell


Edit ii

About 14 hours following
his arrest by a sheriff's
deputy, a 66-year-old Villages
Mnan was found dead in his
holding cell at the county jail.
Sheriff's investigators are
awaiting the results of toxicol-
ogy reports performed by the
medical examiner's office to
determine the cause of death
of Daniel Eugune Zubrinitz.
Those results aren't expect-
ed to be known for six to eight
weeks, according to sheriff's
Chief Deputy Jack Jordan. An
autopsy was performed but
the cause of death remains
unknown.
Zubrinitz was arrested
about 2 p.m. Wednesday, June
21, for trespassing after warn-
ing at the Sparky's Shell
Station on County Road 466 in
The Villages, according to a
sheriff's office press release.
Following his arrest,
Zubrinit2: was placed in a
holding, cell at the jail. A
detention center deputy
checked on him about 4:37
a.m. Thursday, June 22, and
found him unresponsive,
according to the press
release. Emergency service
workersE pronounced him
dead at 4:49 a.m.
Zubrinitz was arrested by
Deputy, Michael Dragneff
after the manager of the con-
venience store telephoned
the sheriff's office on the
afternQon of June 21 stating
that Zubrinitz refused to
leave the business after being
asked several times, accord-

Villages road issue rumbles again


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent


Sumter County Commis-
sion.ers on Tuesday decided
-they want to examine other
options and see what other
counties are doing before
agreeing to a policy that
would result in the county
spending more money foi
more intensive upkeep of
road right-of-ways in The


Villages.
Rather than agreeing to
adopt a policy that would
define separate "levels of
service" for rural and urban
roads, respectively, the board
decided to have staff check on
policies that other counties
might have and how much
they are spending on similar
situations.
Staff is also to check on the
potential cost for Sumter
Public Works to do the inten-


sive turf maintenance that
Villages roadways are getting.
It's basically an old. issue
that has resurfaced.
This month, Peter Wahl, dis-
trict co-manager for the
Village Center Community
Development District, sent a
letter to the county asking for
the policy consideration.
He noted that the county
until 2003 had paid up to
$5,000 a year to the CDD for
maintaining right-of-ways of


county roads in The Villages.
And, he noted that after the
public works director took
issue with that rate, the board
agreed to pay the CDD only
$647 per mile, per year for
seven mowing events per year.
There was no provision to pay
for landscape maintenance.
Apparently that rate is not
satisfactory to the boards that
are responsible for getting the
work done in The Villages.
"The boards of supervisors


of Districts 1, 2 and 3 believe
that the participation of the
county is based upon an inac-
curate understanding of the
roadway systems in The
Villages which are part of the
countty's roadway systems,
and are requesting that the
Board of County
Commissioners readdress its
intergovernmental agreement
in line with its acceptance of

Former

official


dies, 86

BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Former County Commis-
sioner Harry S. Lovett died
Wednesday, June 21, at the
age of 86.
Lovett served on the
District 4 seat of the County
Commission for 12 years,
from 1974 to 1986.
Recently retired County
Administrator
Bernard Dew
worked with
Lovett during
the last three
years he
served on the
board.
"Harry was
persistent,"
Dew said. "If
there was
something he Lovetr
wanted to get
done he would continue to
work on it."
During Lovett's terms in
office, the County Commis-
sion was involved in the
expansion of the Sumter
County Courthouse and the
Sumter County Detention
Center.
Lovett also had a strong
focus on Sumter transporta-y
tion systems.
"He was interested in roads
and how to improve the coun-
tN road system." Dew said.
.,Harry was close to people
He was a people-type per-
son," he said.
Lovett was also involved in
controversy during his final
year on the County
Commission. In 1986, he was
arrested in connection with a
proposed racetrack near
Bushnell. The arrest led to
his removal from the County
Commission that year by the
governor.
In 1987, Lovett was sen-
tenced to one year of commu-
nity control for illegally
accepting money from the

Coleman City Council could eliminate clerk position


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

In light of Clay Godwin's
removal from office, the
Coleman City Council may
.eliminate the elected position
of city clerk.
However, there doesn't seem
fo be a simple way to go about
it.
; The council presented sever-
al options at a special meeting
June 20, including hiring an
employee to take over the role
Of city clerk. A decision on the
future of the city clerk's elected
office has not been made.
SCity Attorney Brenda Smith
Said there is conflicting lan-
guage in the city code for elimi-


nating the city clerk's position
and did not advise the council
to abolish it without a referen-
dum.
The council discussed put-
ting a referendum on the ballot
in the next election to let voters
decide whether or not to have
an elected city clerk. At the
same election, the people
would be asked to vote for a
candidate for city clerk.
Theoretically, if the referen-
dum passed, a candidate could
be elected city clerk at the
same time the position is elimi-
nated.
Another option would be to
hold a special election with
only the referendum to see if
voters want a city clerk or not,
but Smith said holding a spe-


cial election would be expen-
sive..
"The problem is we're trying
to save money and hedge our
bets at the same time," she said.
For now, the council plans to
seek applicants for a newly cre-
ated hourly position of public
service director. The public
service *director would take
over responsibilities of the city
clerk. The council did not
immediately set a salary range
or deadline for applying.
If the council hires an
employee to take over the city
clerk's duties, and a new city
clerk is elected later, the elect-
ed city clerk would have very
limited duties, council mem-
bers said.
Councilwoman Virgie


Everett said she is in favor of
having a city clerk and it does-
n't make sense to have two peo-
ple performing the same job.
"I think we're wasting money
to bring in somebody and they
don't do anything."
Everett also questioned
whether eliminating the posi-
tion would be legal.
"I think we need to put it on
the election to see ifthe people
want a city clerk," she said.
Council Chairwoman Mary
Bigham said that in the past,
there hasn't been much compe-
tition for votes in the city clerk
races.
"There are cities that .don't
have city clerks," Bigham said.
Councilman Cleveland
Williams, Jr. expressed concern


that there could be other conse-
quences to eliminating the
position.
"It can be legal but still have
(political) repercussions," he
said. "Are we going to let people
know that they are running for
nothing?"
Mayor Lonnie Evans sus-
pended Godwin in late March
for neglect of duties. The coun-
cil was scheduled to make a
decision regarding Godwin's
status at an April hearing, but
the board was split on the issue.
When they voted again on May
8, the vote was 4-1 to remove
Godwin.
This is not the first time the
council has had to fill Godwin's
position.
In February 2004, he was sus-


pended without pay or benefits
for similar. reasons by the
mayor. He was, however, elect-
ed to the post again later that
year.
Bigham said the city was in a
similar predicament another
time several years ago when its
city clerk retired. While the
position wasn't eliminated
then, it was discussed, and the
option is on the table now.
Akiko Teagle, the city's
finance manager, is currently
the only employee working at
City Hall.
Bigham said she expected
the issue to be discussed at the
council's upcoming meetings.
The next regular meeting is
scheduled for Monday, July 10
at 7 p.m.


Two die in 1-75 accident


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Two people died and three
others were injured Saturday
morning in a single vehicle
accident on Interstate 75 near
the entrance to the Florida
turnpike.
The accident happened
about 6:30 a.m. when the tire
tread separated on a 2003 Ford
F-150 pickup, sending the vehi-
cle into the center median
where it overturned, accord-
ing to a Florida Highway
Patrol report.


The truck was driven by
Raul Zuniga, 38, of
Loxahatchee. He was trans-
ported to Orlando Regional
Medical Center for treatment.
Two passengers: Estella
Zuniga, 12, and Oliveria
Benitez, 66, both of
Loxahatchee, were pro-
nounced dead at the scene of
the accident, according to the
report. Both passengers had
been thrown from the vehicle
onto the roadway during the
accident.
Two other passengers, Maria
Diaz, 42, and Monica Zuniga,
40, both of Loxahatehee, were


transported to Orlando
Regional Medical Center for
treatment. Zuniga was also
thrown out of the vehicle dur-
ing the accident.
The truck was southbound
on 1-75 in the inside lane when
the right rear tire tread sepa-
rated and caused the truck to
rotate and enter the center
median, according to the
report. It then overturned and
came to rest in the northbound
inside lane of 1-75.
Following the accident,
northbound traffic was
reduced to one lane for more
than two hours.

approval from the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission.


Jail receivesaccreitation
a ..1


Most professional organiza-
tions subscribe to an accredi-
tation process.
The Sumter County
Detention Center is one of
them.
In its quest for excellence,
the jail staff has recently suc-
ceeded in being re-accredit-
ed by the Florida Corrections
Accreditation. Commission
(FCAC).
There are 243 standards to
comply with. An evaluation is
done every three years and
this is their accreditation
process that began in 2000
when the jail was initially
accredited. '
S"We have always had 100
percent compliance with the
rigid standards. The recent
inspection resulted in a 99.29
percent compliance due to
issues of overcrowding," said
Accreditation Supervisor
Juliane Day, who has been
involved with the process
since 2000.
- Accreditation was designed
to improve correctional serv-
ices and all aspects of the jail
from administration to
inmate housing. The FCAC
standards exceed the state
standards of the Florida
Model Jail Standards.
With FMJS, the inspections
are annually and only one
day. The FCAC inspection is


three days with the inspec-
tors looking at three years of
proofs to show compliance.
Sumter County Detention
Center 'was inspected by a
team selected by the FCAC. It
was composed of a captain
from Lee County Sheriffs
Office, a sergeant from St.
Johns County Sheriffs Office
and a sergeant from Sarasota
County Sheriffs Office.
In their recommendation
report to the commission, the
inspection team wrote, "The
Sumter County Sheriffs
Office Detention Center staff
demonstrated an overall
commitment to the accredita-
tion process. It was clearly
evident at the time of the
entrance interview that com-
mand staff was eager to show
their facility and were open
to suggestions. Their staff
members are knowledgeable,
pleasant, and it is evident
that the staff is performing
their work responsibilities
according to agency policies
and procedures on a daily
basis."
Rachel Turner is. the
accreditation manager and
has been involved since the
re-accreditation process in
2003.

important part of our accred-
itation process and I am

It was dark and most
Sumter residents were sleep-
ing through squall lines that
preceded Hurricane Alberto
on Tuesday, June 13. It was
still early in the morning
when telephones in Lake
Panasoffkee rang and the
voice on the other end of the
line warned of a burglary in
the area.
The Sumter County
Sheriff's Office Reverse 911
system warned residents
about a break-in that had
occurred just after midnight.
Someone had broken a
window and entered the
Lake Panasoffkee Water

Concerned about Sumter


Citizens For Clean Air and Water are
supporting the folks in Center Hill
against the expansion of the Rinker lime
rock mine.
The hearing before the Board of
County Commissioners, who will decide
the case, is being held at the Fair
Grounds at Bevilles Corner on Thursday,
July 6, at 6 p.m.
Some of our concerns include what we
believe to be the drastic dewatering of
the area. We believe there is an increase
in sinkholes and we feel it is directly
attributed to the mining process. Homes
in the area have driveways and walls
that have cracked. We believe blasts
have shaken homes and broken dishes.
There is an old dump (unrelated to
Rinker) that has been abandoned, built
long before they ever knew about linings
and regulations: we strongly suspect this
dump contains toxic materials.
We fear the worst example of the dam-
age being done is in Jumper creek.
There had been a beautiful spring in
Jumper Creek only weeks ago and it is
gone. We feel mining activities in the
area have caused this. There is now a
hole there approximately 100 ft long and
50 ft wide.
After the Zoning and Adjustment
Board (ZAB) meeting, the papers report-
ed that few concerned citizens had


shown up at the meeting.
It is hard to believe that these things
are being totally discounted. Rinker has
brought in a number of so-called experts
to testify at the BOCC in their behalf.
I fear our voices will fall on deaf ears.
There is no way the local people can
compete with Rinkers' deep pockets; I
am talking about a billion-dollar busi-
ness up against small homeowners. We
were no match for them. The ZAB has
recommended that the BOCC approve
the expansion of the rock mine.
Let me remind you: There are no walls
cordoning off one area of the aquifer
from another. Let me remind you, what
effects South Sumter's aquifer is, in
essence, going to affect The Villages as
well as the surrounding counties.
Our hope is that the commissioners,
who live here, drink the same water we
drink, and profess to love Sumter County,
will not be beguiled by the promise of big
bucks, but will take it to heart that we are
the stewards of this precious God-given
land. Perhaps they will remember this
and not turn their backs in favor of
cement and more paved over roadways.

President of Citizens for Clean Air
and Water


Wasteful fire
service continues
Citrus County has a population of
approximate 131,000 according to an
estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau
for 2004.
In April 2005, the University of Florida
estimated Sumter County's population at
approximately 75,000, but that includes
the Villages. So, let's take an estimate of
25,000 for Sumter County. So, that makes
Citrus County have a population 5 times
that of Sumter and they have a higher
percentage of older population.
Let us compare Citrus County
Fire/Rescue vs. Sumter County,
Fire/Rescue: Battalion Chiefs-Citrus 0,
Sumter 3, volunteer/independent con-
tractor with take home vehicle (VIC-
THV); Division Chief/Training Officer-
Citrus 1 Full Time training officer,
Sumter 2-(VICTHV); Safety Officer-
Citrus 0, Sumter 2 (VICTHV); District
Chiefs- Citrus 0, Sumter 10 (9VICTHV);
Assist. District Chiefs- Citrus 0, Sumter -
not sure but by public records there are
at least 2VICTHV
Appears once again that the taxpayers
are getting the short end of the stick
Talking with officials with EMS, I have
found out what basically the First
Responders/Fire Fighters in Sumter
County can do when responding to cer-
tain types of medical emergencies (e.g.
general illness, back pain, lower GI
bleed, etc.). They can take your blood
pressure, check your pulse, respiration,
blood sugar, give you oxygen and hook
you up to an automatic electronic defib-
rillator (AED), and that is according to
the protocol of the medical license for
Lake-Sumter EMS.
According to a report that was done for
Citrus County Fire/Rescue, the number
one '"critical customer concern" was
"some of the response requirement may
not be necessary, i.e., medical calls hav-
ing fire back-up," but yet here in Sumter
County, the Fire Administration wants
the Fire Department to respond to ALL
medical calls. Thank goodness that has
been changed but there is still room for
improvement. In Citrus County,
Fire/Rescue does not respond to general
illness medical calls unless it meets cer-
tain criteria, so why is Sumter County
doing it? Are commissioners scared to do
a similar study here in Sumter County to
"find out what the taxpayers want and
need and not Fire Administration."
Citrus taxpayers are paying $48.10 for
Fire Services on a $100,000 taxable value


home. Herein Sumter County that same
$ 100,000 home costs you the taxpayer $
105.90. You may be asking how I got that
figure, $56 Fire Assessment Fee plus the
.499 mils from ad valorem tax dollars to
help subsidize the Fire Department,
equals $105.90. Prediction, fellow tax-
payers, for fiscal year 2007-2008 for that
$100,000 home you will be paying
between $200 and $325 for Fire Services.
So, fellow taxpayers, the wasteful spend-
ing continues.

BEYOND SUMTER


Last week, I wrote a column
about insurers' last effort of the
year to offer you Medicare
Advantage plans. It is seldom that I
write about this Medicare
option, and with good rea-
son. So, I shall throw a lit-
tle more ink on the subject.
Medicare Advantage
(MA) is an alternative plan
that the government, by act "-
of Congress, has offered
beneficiaries since 1989.
Initially, it was identified
as Medicare Health Maint-
enance Organizations.
And, indeed, that is exactly D
what these organizations RoF
are. The plan's name was
changed to Medic.are-Plus-
Choice, and now, Medicare
Advantage, sometimes Medicare Part
C.
As an alternative to "Traditional
Medicare," or original Medicare, MA
and its predecessor plans never
clicked with the Greatest Generation.
Note, my good folks, this issue crosses
all party lines, both executive and con-
gressional.
In fact, Medicare HMOs never
signed up more than 13 percent of its
beneficiaries at any given time. This is
despite the fact that this is the type of
plan that the government wants to see
its Medicare beneficiaries enrolled
in. At this current time, perhaps, 11 to
12 percent of beneficiaries have this
plan. Basically, and I mean very basi-
cally, the government pays hospitals,
medical physicians and providers a


singular amount for each benefici-
ary/patient who enrolls in a plan.
Physicians, based on ideological and
economic reasons, usually do not
favor these plans.
However, hospitals seem
to delight in them. These
plans are administrated by
private insurance compa-
nies that have a primary
responsibility to their
stockholders. For this rea-
son, I, too, have an ideolog-
ical problem with these
.. 'plans. And most of all
Medicare beneficiaries
AN have little understanding
HAN of HMOs and their sister
SAN plans, PPOs, preferred
provider organizations.
So, those of you who
have been writing to me, sit back and
take it easy The ads that you are see-
ing are just last-minute Christmas
shopping for insurers.
Why don't I write about these types
of policies? Understand, my friend, I
am published in different markets,
some of these markets have had
Medicare HMOs and PPOs for nearly
two decades; some markets don't have
them at all.
Hence, some markets that are new
to these plans think that Rohan is the
greatest since sliced bread, yet com-
munities that have had them for years
think my sweet lord, what kind of
jerk is Rohan? These thoughts may
run through your heads weekly, no
matter what I write.
So, for those of you engaged in free

SUMMER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 2006, PAGE 5



County Commission to decide mine expansion


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The Rinker/Florida
Crushed Stone mine in Center
Hill continues to seek
approval from the County
Commission to expand its
operations by nearly 400 acres.
The company is asking for a
conditional use permit to
allow mining on land zoned
agricultural.
Commissioners are expect-
ed to make a decision at a pub-
lic hearing set for 5:30 p.m. on
Thursday, July 6, at the West
Central Florida Agriculture
Center at the Sumter County
Fairgrounds.
Though the conditional use
permit would be for 395 acres,
Rinker is only requesting to
mine 152 acres, according to
Roberta Rogers, director of
Sumter County Planning and
Development
County commissioners


denied a similar application
Rinker filed last year after
months of protests from resi-
dents, and, as the company
continues to seek the county's
approval to expand, citizen
groups continue to oppose it.
"I don't think that they
should expand because of
what they have done already.
It has scarred the landscape,"
said Sue Michalson, president
of Citizens for Clean Air and
Water. "We feel that (mining
activity) is damaging the land,
that it is impacting the
aquifer."
The group has joined forces
with CORE (Citizens Opposed
to Rinker's Expansion), which
formed last year when the
mine first sought approval to
expand its operations.
Michalson and others claim
a sinkhole approximately 100
feet long near Rinker's prop-
erty boundary recently
engulfed a spring along
Jumper Creek


"It's heartbreaking," she
said. "It's like looking at an
open wound."
Michalson, of The Villages,
said the groups have brought
in their own legal counsel and
experts, but they "can't com-
pete" with Rinker.
"We can't afford it The bur-
den should not fall on us, real-
ly. If the commissioners are
suspect of it or concerned,
they should bring in the
experts. They shouldn't hear
just one side and we can't
afford it."
Numerous residents of the
area have complained of sink-
hole prevalence they feel is
directly related to mining
activities, as well as damage to
nearby homes and wells.
They complain that mining
impacts property values and
that they are disturbed by
noise from blasting.
However, Rinker officials
have attempted to address
these concerns since the ini-


tial application was turned
down by the County
Commission last year.
They're offering to pay for
well and structural inspec-
tions at residences within a
mile of the mine, and officials
say that Rinker will help if it is
determined that Rinker's min-
ing activities have caused
damage.
"We will make reparations,"
said Tracy Bryant, Rinker's
community relations manager.
Matt Mouncey, the compa-
ny's regional environmental
manager, said this application
is considerably different than
the one the company filed in
2005. The area Rinker intends
to mine has been reduced to
152 acres.
In addition to reducing the
mining area, Mouncey said
Rinker has increased setbacks
on all sides of the property
beyond what the county
requires and has increased
water monitoring by adding


"several new monitoring sta-
tions.
"That was done voluntarily
by us."
He said the sinkholes on
Rinker property and land
nearby have occurred natural-
ly
"We would say that sink-
holes we've seen and looked at
along with the water manage-
ment district... are naturally
occurring."
Though the company has
been criticized for past permit
violations, Mouncey said
Rinker is currently in compli-
ance with all of its permits.
"We are a community part-
ner," Bryant said. "We are
doing business the way we
should be doing business."
Public hearings involving
Rinker's applications have
been so lengthy in the past
that the County Commission
has changed its public hearing
process and imposed time
restrictions for each side to


present its case.
Last week, the County
Commission changed the

amount of time allowed for
each side to present its case to
the board. Now, the applicant
and organized opposition each
have 60 minutes to present to
the board. Also, residents are
each allowed three minutes to
speak
For technical questions
related to mining, Rogers said
the county has a consultant,
Chuck Drake of the firm Tetra
Tech, for assistance and to
provide the county with a
hydrologist and geologist.
"They work for the county
and they give us advice," she
said.
"Their concern is for the
county and we depend very
much on their expertise."
She said the consultant is
present throughout the hear-
ing process and will be avail-
able at the July 6 hearing for
the board to call upon.

Having fun: Cops and kids style


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

On June 24, roughly 80 chil-
dren made it to the Sam
Harris Memorial Park in
Webster, where city officials
were offering free food, rides
and games for Cops and Kids
Community Fun Day
"It turned out to be a good
day," said Webster Police
Officer Marjorie Sanders, who
coordinated the event.
She said she hoped to show
children that police can be
trusted and shouldn't be
feared.
"We just don't write tick-
ets.. .there's more to us than
that."
This is the second year the
city and police department
have sponsored the event in
an effort to educate young-
sters and give them a free day
full of fun.
The police department cre-
ated child identification cards
for 39 children and provided
free gun locks and literature
on drug prevention.
Event volunteers included
Webster City Coimmissioners
Michael Alderman and
Patricia Ward, as well as some
city employees.
Local individuals and busi-
nesses provided everything
from the rides and games to
the food, she said.
"I'm very proud of the com-
munity to come together and
support this."
Sanders took an active role
in the day's entertainment:
She found herself being
soaked in a game they called
"Dunk a Cop.":
Also among the amuse-
ments were a bounce house
and rock wall.
A young monster truck driv-
er even came over from
Dunnellon to help make the
day a memorable one.
Stephen Hill, 17, a student
at Dunnellon High School,
drives a 10,000-pound pickup
truck called "Monkey'n
Around."
Hill set up at the park and
passed out autographed pho-

EMBARGO


In Sumter County,


Change is Good!!!


And what is this change?
Sprint local is no longer a mem-
ber of the Sprint Nextel family of
companies. We separated from
-Sprint Nextel in May and we are
now EMBARQ. We proudly serve
more than seven million house-
holds and businesses in 18 states
including ours, the sunshine state.
We are excited to be the largest
non-Bell local company in the
nation and proudly trading our
new stock under the NYSE symbol-
EQ.
Think about this if you want to
get somewhere in this world, you
have to leave things behind.
Columbus left Spain. The colonists
left England. Our astronauts left
Earth. In doing so they also took
with them the knowledge and
experience they had gained. -We
are taking our 107 years of service
experience and marrying it with
innovative thinking to bring com-
mon sense to an industry that,
quite frankly, needs it. EMBARQ
offers residents and businesses the
total package --- wireline, high
speed Internet, entertainment and
wireless.
So why is this change so good?'
For starters, EMBARQ continues
to provide those living and working
in Sumter County with reliable,
innovative products. As a matter of
fact be on the lookout for some
incredible offers this summer to
celebrate the launch of our compa-
ny's new name and logo.
Secondly, EMBARQ will contin-
ue .to provide the most reliable
service to your homes and busi-
nesses. The same telephone tech-
nicians that kept service up and
running during the hurricane sea-
sons of 2004 and 2005, will continue
their service and support to the
communities.


E Vents


Margo S.Odom
Public Affairs Manager
And beyond that, EMBARQ is
further strengthening its focus on
local community support. Be look-
ing for us as we support and spon-
sor multiple community events this
summer such as Sumter Chamber
of Commerce Casino Night, Best
Places to Work in Lake & Sumter
Counties, and the America Cancer
Society Cattle Barron's Ball.
As EMBARQ's Public Affairs
Manager in Sumter, I want to
assure you that our products, per-
sonnel, service and community
focus are aimed at and committed
to making our neighborhoods the
best places to live, work and raise
families.
All of us at EMBARQ are doing
our best to earn and keep your
business by providing you with the
most reliable and innovative com-
munications solutions available.
Stay connected with us. You'll
like what you see.
Get set -for an exciting time .of

assistance from The Salvation

their need and careful network-

agencies is done to avoid dupli-

Project Your Cash Flow


HOW IS YOUR CASH FLOW?
DOWN IN THE SUMMER? NEED
MORE CASH

A Are you advertising
summer specials?
B. Are you giving your
year around customers incen-
tive to purchase now?
C. Do you' have seasonal
products to sell in the sum-
mer?
D. Have you adjusted
your inventory for the season,
these are dollars on the shelf.
E. Put away cash for the
slow months. PLAN

ELEMENTS OF CASH FLOW

1. Starting Cash is the
amount of cash at beginning
of period, it is the same cash
onahand at the end of the pre-
vious period.
2.. Cash In this is the
source of all incoming cash
for the period.
A Sales are primary source
of cash, but only include cash
sales. Invoiced sales does not
represent current cash you
can spend.,
B. Paid Receivables are
those sales previously
invoiced and paid this period.
It is important to project
accurately when you expectto
get paid. 30 days. 60 days. etc..
Include only receivables you
expect to be paid this period.
C. Interest any interest paid
on investments of company
funds.
D. Other sale of stock,
repayment of loan, sale of
assets, etc..
3. Cash Out is cash leaving
the business in two basic
ways:
A. Fixed Expenses are
incurred regularly and gener-
ally do not fluctuate, such as
rent, payroll, utilities, taxes,


insurance, etc. with sales vol-
ume.
B. Variable Expenses
change from period to period
and often vary \% ith sales vol-
ume or production volume.
such as supplies. commis-
sions, ray. materials, promo-
tions, etc..
4. Ending Cash is the
result of the cash in and the
cash out figures. Add the
Starting Cash to total Cash In
then subtract total Cash Out.
If positive this the Starting
Cash for next period, if nega-
tive you have no cash to start
next period.
5. Cash Flow is the
amount that has flowed
through the business and is a
measure for what has hap-
pened for the period. Cash
Flow is not an indication as to
Profit or Loss. It is the amount
of cash necessary to operate
your business.

Supporters give Hospice $200,000 VeteranServices


head start toward new facility Secretary Nicholson announces


.The Villagers for
Hospice presented
a check for
| $200,000 at a
luncheon recently
fEven before detailed plans
fr Hospice of Lake and
sumter's second Hospice
iouse in this community
lTave been drawn, an enthusi-
astic group of Hospice sup-
iorters have raised nearly a
ctuarter million dollars
tbwvard its construction.
:The Villagers for Hospice,
fi independent, all-volun-
teer organization dedicated
to raising money for the
HIospice organization, pre-
sented a check for $200,000 at
luncheon recently, Hospice
officials said. The group,
leaded by co-chairs Arlene
Ifentz and Pat Reynolds, des-
ignated the money to help
lray for the second of an even-
tual four 12-bedroom resi-
ctences for patients unable to
itmain in their own homes.
,The first residence cost
$2.7 million and opened in
JAine 2003. officials said. It is
located on CR 466 just west of
the Morse Boulevard inter-
sect ion and occupies roughly
(ne quarter of a 5+ acre land
parcell donated by The
Villages developer. "We'd
asked them for enough land
t~,accommodate one Hospice
Ijuse," explained Hospice
GEO Pat Lehotsky. "Instead,
t5ey gave us enough for four,
spying that they wanted us to
be able to meet the area's
r'owing need for our servic-
e well into the future."
SAccording to Lehotsky, the
fjrst residence is adequately
meeting community needs at
this time. "However, our cen-
spis continues to rise steadily
a more people learn of the
special benefits of Hospice
care." While active planning
for the second of the four
ltuses hasn't. begun yet, the
OEO said it likely would start
ii the next few years.
In preparation, -The
\pllagers for Hospice have
staged an array of major
r nd-raising events. "Walkin'

in Rhythm" is an annual vari-
ety show conceived and
organized by Arlene Bentz,"
said Reynolds. Also, Villagers
for Hospice run an annual
golf tournament, a "Hogs for
Hospice" barbecue, a "Trees
of Love" Christmas fund-rais-
er, and a yearly cruise,
Reynolds said. "Two years
ago we went to Russia and
Scandinavia and this year we
just returned from a cruise to
the Greek Isles."
In addition, Ashley Hux, a
former Miss Florida and cur-
rent Miss University of
Florida, stars in an annual
concert to help the group.
The Villagers for Hospice
also conduct smaller, ongoing
fund-raising activities
including the sale of
inscribed honor/memorial
bricks for the walkway
fronting the existing Hospice
House. Also, local business-
es, clubs, organizations and
individuals often conduct
their own fund-raising events
to assist the Hospice support
group, Reynolds said.
And while the $200,000 is
an impressive amount, the
Hospice volunteers know
they still have work ahead of
them. "Construction costs
have gone up considerably in
the past few years," noted


Reynolds. "We understand
that the second Villages
Hospice House will cost
somewhere between $3 and
$4 million." It will be similar
to the current 12-bedroom
residence and, like that facil-
ity, will face toward the
Serenity Center, a medita-
tion/prayer sanctuary for
patients and families, which
eventually will be the central
focal point for all four hos-
pice houses on the site.
Beyond the $200,000
they've raised so far for the
second patient residence, the
Villagers for Hospice have
also collected a whopping
$450,000 to help pay for the
first Hospice House and the
adjacent Serenity Center,
Lehotsky stated. And all of
that has taken place since the
group created itself in 2003,
she said. Like the Women for
Hospice, a similar but sepa-
rate Hospice volunteer group
based in the Mount Dora
area, the Villagers for
Hospice play a critical role in
ensuring that Hospice care is
always there for anyone who
needs it, the CEO explained.
"We rely heavily upon both of
these wonderful groups to
enable us to do \ hat \we do
for the community."


As part of the continuing
efforts by the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) to pro-
tect and assist those poten-
tially affected by the recent
data theft that occurred at an
employee's Maryland home,
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
R. James Nicholson recently
announced that VA will pro-
vide one year of free credit
monitoring to people whose
sensitive personal informa-
tion may have been stolen in
the incident
"VA continues to take
aggressive steps to protect
and assist people who may be
potentially affected by this
data theft," said Nicholson.
"VA has conducted extensive
market research on available
credit monitoring solutions,
and has been working dili-
gently to determine how VA
can best serve those whose
information was stolen.
"Free credit monitoring
will help safeguard those who
may be affected, and will pro-
vide them with the peace of
mind they deserve," he
added.
The Secretary said VA has
no reason to believe the per-
petrators who committed this
burglary were targeting the
data, and Federal investiga-
tors believe that it is unlikely
that identity theft has result-
ed from the data theft.
This week, VA will solicit
bids from qualified compa-
nies to provide a comprehen-
sive credit monitoring solu-
tion. VA will ask these compa-


nies to provide expedited
proposals and to be prepared
to implement them rapidly
once they are under contract.
After VA hires a credit mon-
itoring company, the
Department will send a
detailed letter to people
whose sensitive personal
information may have been
included in the stolen data.
This letter will explain credit
monitoring and how eligible
people can enroll or "opt-in"
for the services. The
Department expects to have
the services in place and the
letters mailed by mid-August.
Secretary Nicholson also
announced VA is soliciting
bids to hire a company that
provides data-breach analy-
sis, which will look for possi-
ble misuse of the stolen VA
data. The analysis would help
measure the risk of the data
loss, identify suspicious mis-
use of identity information
and expedite full assistance
to affected people.
As part of VAs efforts to
prevent such an incident
from happening again,
Secretary Nicholson previ-
ously announced a series of
personnel changes in the
Office of Policy and Planning,
where the breach occurred;
the hiring of former Maricopa
County (Ariz.) prosecutor
Richard. Romley as a Special
Advisor for Information
Security; the expedited com-
pletion of Cyber Security
Awareness Training and
Privacy Awareness Training


for all VA employees; that an
inventory be taken of all posi-
tions requiring access to sen-
sitive VA data by June 30,
2006, to ensure that only those
employees who need such
access to do their jobs have it;
that every laptop in VA
undergo a security review to
ensure that all security and
virus software is current,
including the immediate
removal of any unauthorized
information or software; and
that VA facilities across the
country every hospital,
Community-Based
Outpatient Clinic (CBOC),
regional office, national
cemetery, field office and VA's
Central Office observe
Security Awareness Week
beginning June 26.
People who believe they
may be affected by the data
theft can go to
www.firstgov.gov for more
information. VA also contin-
ues to operate a call center
that people can contact to get
information about this inci-
dent and learn more about
consumer-identity protec-
tions. That toll free number is
1-800-FED INFO (1-800-333-
4636). The call center is oper-
ating from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm
(EDT), Monday-Saturday as
long as it is needed.

cemetery grounds this year.
Since the first picnic in
1897, picnickers have come to
buy plates of chicken and rice
and barbecue, sip lemonade
and gather on blankets and
lawn chairs.
Most of the afternoon is
spent talking among family
members and catching up
with old friends, but there
are also drawings for cash


prizes and an auction for pies
and cakes that sometimes
sell for hundreds of dollars.
Politicians also use the pic-
nic to campaign candidates
for school board, circuit
judge, state house of repre-
sentatives and county com-
mission found their way to

search but he was looking
for two women, related by
blood, who had been mur-
dered somewhere in the
United States. He found their
DNA on the same knife that
held Marquardt's mother's
blood.
Thiesen learned about the
murders of Ruiz and Wells
from a public flyer on the
Internet, which didn't
include the information that
the women had been
stabbed.
While family members and
law enforcement knew, it
hadn't been released to the
general public.
"You always hold back
some information to verify
people's confessions,"
Brannen said, noting that in
some cases, people come for-
ward and confess to crimes
they haven't committed -
either because they are men-


tally ill, need attention, or for
other reasons.
What they hold back is
determined in each individ-
ual crime and holding back
some information -is a stan-
dard step, guided by FBI pol-
icy, according to Brannen.
Immediately after the mur-
ders, there were different
theories ,and authorities
were following up on leads
and possibilities.
Some of the things they
looked at included the fact
that there are "three differ-
ent identified drug houses
within a short distance from
that house.
"There were a lot of things
that we considered at that
time," he said.
"None of us, in our wildest
imaginations, thought it was
someone from Wisconsin."
Assistant State Attorney
Pete Magrino, currently han-
dling the Jessica Lunsford
case in Citrus County, is
expected to serve as prosecu-
tor in the state's case against
Marquardt.

good day," he said.
The cake auction alone
brought in $6,310, raffle tick-
ets sales totaled $2,577 and
individual desserts and
drinks brought in more than
$1,000.
Gideons said there is
enough money to maintain
the cemetery for another
year.
Everything is donated -
from the prize money, pies
and cakes, meats and lemon-
ade to the time and hard
work the picnic requires.
"It's all a labor of love,"
said Bill Carlisle, the author
and coauthor of several
books, including Ties that
Bind and Ties that Bind II,
which chronicle the history
of Linden and its cemetery.
Copies of the books, along
with an array of old photo-
graphs of Linden families,
were displayed at the picnic.

"He asked one of the sales

When they asked why, what
was the problem, he pro-
ceeded to urinate in his

deputy's report states.
Zubrinitz was then asked
several times to leave,
according to the report.
When he refused, law
enforcement was called.
Zubrinitz was then asked
repeatedly to leave the busi-

he had memory problems,

His letter continued to list
five points, among them argu-
ments that the urban roadways
require a higher level of main-
tenance, that there is a direct
benefit to the county in
increased tax revenues from
enhanced property values and
that the "county's participation
should at a minimum reflect the
actual cost of mowing all eligi-
ble collector and minor collec-
tor rights-of-way based upon
the actual cost of mowings that
are required to maintain those
urban roadway standards.
His letter asks that the policy
should reflect only the mowing
costs, not landscape mainte-
nance or irrigation.

letter, Wahl cited mowing costs

what was happening.
When Zubrinitz got inside
his vehicle, instead of leaving
the business, he told the
deputy, "But I have to write
all this down," according to
the deputy's report. He was
attempting to "write on
scratch papers."
By that point, Zubrinitz
had been advised at least five
times to leave the area.
When he remained in his
vehicle, after being warned
that he would be arrested,
Dragneff, assisted by officer
David Vargas, removed
Zubrinitz from his vehicle,
placed him on the ground
and handcuffed him.
During his time at the jail,
Zubrinitz was the only occu-
pant in the holding cell,
Jordan said.
"There was no foul play. We
just have to wait on the
results of the toxicology
reports to determine what
happened."

racetrack developer.
Lovett was born Sept. 5,
1919 in Bushnell where he
was a lifelong resident.
At the age of 21, he entered
the armed forces and served
with honor in the 28th
infantry (the Black Lions) for
more than four years. He
received many awards includ-
ing two purple hearts, a
bronze star as well as other
medals while serving in the
European Campaign. He held
the rank of tech sergeant
when he was honorably dis-
charged in 1945.
After leaving the service, he
held several jobs including
game warden, logger, grocery
store owner and auto
parts/inspection station
owner.
He was a faithful member of
the First Baptist Church of
Wahoo where he served as a


Chairman Joey Chandler.
"I don't see establishing a
new policy unless it's going to
apply to everyone," Chandler
said.
But Commissioner Richard
Hoffman agreed with at least
one of Wahl's points, that the
intensively managed right-of -
ways enhanced property values
and in turn increased the ad-
valorem revenue coming to the
county.
He cited a recent study that
he said showed that The
Villages not only paid for itself,
but also added about $10 mil-
lion annually to the county rev-,
enue.
"This community is doing
much more than just pulling its
own weight," Hoffman said.
His motion to table the issue
so staff could research the
information was approved with
a four-to-one vote, Chandler
casting the dissenting vote.

of a bond resolution.
It is the first formal step in
the issuance of up to $33 million
in bonds to finance capital
improvement projects,
although the county's bond
council, Bill Zabarra, said that
the final amount would likely
be closer to $31 million.
In two weeks, the board is to
consider an "award resolution,"
he said. At that time, the bond
firm will have a firm interest
rate and other details.
Zabarra said that .there is
good news for the county: there
was a "positive" response and a
fgopdprice from bond insu rers,
which lowers the interest rate
cost to the county.
From the bond funds;,$22 mil-
lion is slated for a project total
of $24 million for jail expan-
sions. One Million is to come
from the Villages Development
of Regional Impact obligation
and $1 million from the county
general fund.
From the bonds, $8 million is
slated for a new county admin-

According to information
Arnold submitted to the board,
the county is spending about
$5,355 annually for mowing
slightly more than eight miles of
right-of-way.
According to Arnold, the orig-
inal developer's agreement was
not exactly specific about
where the county and develop-

end.
But, everyone enjoys the aes-
thetics of those roadways, he
said.
He suggested.that.the board
should determine if such a pol-'
icy would be fair to other coif-
parable areas of the county.
"Arguing over the dollars is
not the point, rather are we
going to treat these roads differ-

Arnold asked.
He suggested that the board
study other counties' policies.
"Then you can get down to talk-

age; they cannot transport
themselves or cannot pur-
chase their own transporta-
tion.
Created in 1979 and re-
enacted in 1989, spawning the
Florida Commission, which
enhanced service and provi-
sions to communities through
local coordinating boards.
Both Sumter and Levy
County Commission boards
are official planning agencies.
Fire Services is paid per
trip, plus a mileage rate for
travel distance through a mix
of funds supplied by the coun-
ty and state, said Jim Sparks,
director of Sumter County
Community Services.
According to fire services
information, the agency per-
formed an estimated 800
assists, moving residents.
"They provided a very good
service," Sparks said.
Transits coordinates the
trips, contacting fire services
to inform them of the trips
they need to make. Along with
stretcher transports, they typ-
ically cover holidays and after
hours.
Fire Services converted a
bus into a vehicle for wheel-
chair and stretcher transport.
"It's well deserved," Sparks
said of the department's
award.
"They work hard," he
added, pointing out that
honor is statewide.

Sumter County Fire Services earned the "Operator Award of the Year," awarded by the .Commission for the Transportation
Disadvantaged. The agency held their annual Conference earlier this month in Orlando. The award was also based on safety
record, driver training and their contribution to the Transit itself, as a dependable, reliable, efficient, operator. Fire services repre-
sentatives are shown: (back row, left to right) Chris Burris, Chris Helbig, Geoffrey Martz, Commissioner Jim Roberts and Fire Chief

Police Department turns up the HEAT this summer


impaired driving, and speed-
ing violations will not be toler-
ated.
Preliminary data from the
Florida Department of
Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles (DHSMV) shows that
487 people died on Florida
roads last summer in less than
a two-month period. Many of
these deaths could have been


prevented. Almost 62 percent
of those killed in vehicles
equipped with safety belts
were not buckled up at the
time of the crash. About 34
percent of the total fatalities
last summer were alcohol-
related.
The Bushnell Police
Department fully supports
this enforcement effort


because the goal is to save
lives. Last summer there were
almost 39,000 traffic crashes
in Florida. The risk of sustain-
ing lifelong injuries or being
killed in a motor vehicle crash
is very high. Always using
your safety belt, driving the
speed limit, and driving sober
will help you and your loved
ones significantly decrease


the risk of being seriously
injured or dying in a crash.
"Too many people don't
realize that hundreds of peo-
ple are killed on our roads in
Florida during the summer,"
said Chief Wells, Bushnell
Police Department.
"It's time to buckle up,
secure the kids in their child
safety seats or booster seats,


drive sober, and obey the lim-
its."
Although 20 percent of the
nation's population resides in
the Southeastern United
States, data from the National
Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA)
shows 25 percent of the
nation's total crash fatalities
occur in the South.

Cops tip $7,000 mark during Tip-A-Cop project


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Sumter County law enforce-
ment was out in full force to
support Sumter County
Olympians this month.
Thanks to local restaurants,
staff and customers, officers
collected more than $7,000 in
"tips" for Sumter County
Special Olympic athletes, said
Sumter Sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers.
"Restaurants gave an
advance notice of when we
were coming, and residents
came out just to support the
fundraiser," according to
Caruthers.
They received several tips
of $500 or more.
Host restaurants for the
event included Buddy's
Barbecue, Hayseed, the
Speckled Butterbean, the
Coffee House and Bono's.
It was "very successful,"
Caruthers said, adding his
gratitude.
"We want to thank the
restaurant owners and wait-


resses for putting up with law
enforcement," he said.
As for the officers, he said,
"We put the apron on because
we knew it was such a good
cause."
The majority of them were
school resource officers and
the list included Caruthers,
Josh Greenwood, Jimmy
Little, Tony Hutto, Joey


Mooneyham, John Farfaglia,
Sidney Woolfork.
Nicole Stout, who works in
records at the sheriff's office,
was also on the floor as a serv-
er for tips.
Along with their tip money,
they managed to raise more
than $2,100 in T-shirt money
for the state Special Olympic
games.

Sumter DART logistics team assists in helping 73 dogs


recently, the Sumter
DART logistics team
was called upon to
assist in a lifesaving transport
of 73 dogs.
The Humane Society of the
United States (HSUS) was
called in when a shelter in
Douglas, Ga., was critically
overcrowded with dogs confis-
cated in a hoarding case.
Many dogs were rescued
from the horrible conditions of
the hoarding case, but for some,
help came too late. Some dogs
were left chained outside, and
died of starvation.
HSUS needed a large trailer,
equipped to move a large num-
ber of dogs quickly.
The Sumter DART logistics
team has just the equipment
that was needed. When HSUS
requested assistance, the
Sumter DART team responded.
Arrangements were made with
the Vero Beach Humane
Society to accept the dogs, and
for the Sumter DART team to
transport the animals from
Douglas, Georgia to Vero
Beach.
Lined with transport ken-
nels, the 73 dogs were loaded in
Sumter DART's 44 ft. air-condi-
tioned trailer. The long trip
from Douglas, Georgia to Vero
Beach took almost 7 hours.
There were several stops along
the way to check on the status-
of the 4ogs, who seemed to
know they were being helped.


They were relaxed and com-
fortable; free from the
deplorable conditions they
were forced to once live in.
The Sumter DART logistics
team traveled a total of 800
miles to save the lives of 73
dogs. The team remains on
standby for HSUS and sur-
rounding counties that request
transport help.
Team members, Ronnie
Graves, Linda Graves, and
Daniel Hickey recently attend-
ed a Pinellas County DART
training class. The Sumter
DART members were acknowl-
edged and thanked for their
past work in disasters.
Arrangements for future disas-
ter assistance between Sumter
and Pinellas were made, all to
benefit people and their pets.
We were all asked to urge our
representatives in congress to
support the "Pets Evacuation
and Transportation Standards"
Act. "No pets left behind"
requires local and state emer-
gency preparedness authorities
to include pets in their evacua-
tion plans. Lessons learned
from Hurricane Katrina when
people were forced to leave
their pets will hopefully never
be repeated again. Send a mes-
sage to your senators by going
to:
www.community.hsus.org/cam-
paign/FED_2006_PETS3 and e-
mail your representatives urg-
ing their support of this bill.


The Sumter DART logistics team traveled a total of 800 miles to save the lives of 73 dogs. Pictured in front is team member
Ronnie Graves.


While the entire school bene-
fited from the cash award,
South Sumter Teacher of the.
Year Starcey Morrison's class
had a little extra fun from a
$1,000 donation made by the
Bushnell Wal-Mart
Supercenter.


Beth Hunt and Angel Field of
the Bushnell Wal-Mart

Sumter County Youth Center's
Della Oxendine and Clay

kids at the center to show off
a $1,000 donation made by
the store to the center.

Venturing out for a lesson about gopher tortoises


Last week in my outdoor
column I wrote about
gopher tortoises and
where I thought the
females might lay *"*""
their eggs.
Well, strange
events do happen
every once in a
great while and if .
you can believe it,
just yesterday right
around noon time, I
had been back in
the woods directly
behind where I live
trying to take some JA
wildlife photos and AD
anything else within ...,,
the realm of nature
I could find to pho-
tograph, and perhaps use in
an article sometime on down
the road.
On this particular venture, I
was concentrating on a fairly
large pond that is drying up
fast due to the severe lack of
rain. It is a natural process for
many small ponds to dry up
every so often here in Florida
and it is an important part of
nature's ever changing cycle.
This particular pond, I know
for a fact, has dried up at least


I


two times and returned to its
natural state at least twice
during the 40 years I have
been living close to
-""""""' it.
On at least one
occasion after the
pond went dry and
heavy rains filled it
.- back up to normal
rather quickly, I got
some fingerling
bass and blue gills
brim from Harrell
Revels who worked
at the Richloam
MIE Fish Hatchery and
WMS restocked the pond.
....... The next time it
went dry I did not
do anything and as
I expected somehow it man-
aged to get restocked on it's
own by Mother Nature. I don't
know how a pond will go slap
dry to the point where you
could drive a Cadillac car all
over it and then, after a lot of
heavy rain filled it back up to
the brim, and then in hardly
no time at all it will once again
have fish in it
I'm not just talking about
trash fish like mudfish and
gar, but bass and blue gill will,


through nature's mysteries
and Gods, wonderful miracles,
show back up in no time.
Anyhow, there were all
kinds of wading birds feasting
on the few remaining frogs
and pot gut minnows that
were gathered up in the few
receding pools. There was one
beautiful bird at the pond that
caught my eye right off the bat,
was a solitary Roseate
.Spoonbill.
While it's true there are a
lot of these colorful birds in
south Florida, they don't usu-
ally hang out in large numbers
up this way. As a rule you see
them down around the south-
ern part of the state, especial-
ly around the ten thousand
islands and salt marshes near
Naples. ,
Well anyhow I thought I
might be able to slip-around
the edge of the marsh in my
golf cart and with a bit of luck
find Shug a couple of pink
feathers that the spoon bill
might have shed while preen-
ing.
Folks, my hemi-hauler golf
cart that I use in the woods is
a far cry different from the jil-
lions that swarm around like


ants on the golf courses in the
north end of Sumter County.
Mine, for instance, will run
close to 40 miles an hour. Shug
camouflaged it and with the
lift kit it has, I run some pretty
good-sized tires on it. It also
has one set of gun racks
mounted above the seat and I
have another floor-mounted
set coming that Will be
installed before deer season
opens.
Actually it is a little on the
ugly side and looks as if it
could eat one of those sissy
carts those golfers ride around
in up in Sprawlville while sip-
ping their mint julips or what-
ever it is they like to indulge
in.
Well anyway, I looked for a
couple of feathers that the
Spoonbill had shed but
instead of finding any feath-
ers, I found a sure nuffbad bog
hole and sunk my buggy down
to the gourd.
I finally managed to push
and shove the buddy out and
with sweat dripping off the
end of my nose, made a mental
note that the next thing that
was going on my buggy was an
electric winch. Then, on the


other hand, the buggy will go
just bout anywhere set up the
way it is and thinking back,
this was the first time I had
bogged it in.
Well, while getting out of the
bog I was pretty much covered
all over with muck mud that
the buggy's spinning wheels
had slung all over me so the
first place I headed for back at
the house was to a water
spicket to turn on the water.
hose.
Good friends, it was
between the parked buggy and
the water spicket that I just
about stepped on a baby
gopher right in my own back
yard. Talk about timing if I
had been 15 seconds earlier or
later I would not have seen the
little booger as he was moving
at a pretty good clip, and to
where I ain't got the foggiest.
Well I picked him up and
called Shug to show it to her
and take some photos. I don't
think he was .fresh hatched
because even as small as he
was there was no way he could
fit into a gopher egg. However
he could have been hatched
back in March or early April6
and grown a little between


then and now.
I don't know of any active
gopher caves close to my
house so Shug and I took him:
back to where the coons or
possums had destroyed the
nest I mentioned last week
Sure enough, the last we seen
of him after we turned himi
loose was him scooting into-
the mouth of the cave.
Good friends it is with .a
great deal of aggravation and
concern that I see where the
five members who make up
the Sumter County.:
Commission have shut down-
the use of airboats on Lakes
Miona and Deaton except for a
few hours during daylight
hours.
This not only affects Sumter
County but will impact those
of us who love to operate air-
boats all over the state.
Anyhow, this action has drawn
the ire of the many state and
nation airboat associations
and I will be writing much
more about what has taken
place in regard to this matter
in coming articles. Frankly,
folks, this regulation smacks
of rules made for only a cho-
sen few.

Jones team takes seventh at national event


Ezra Jones is a fonnrmer track


star from Wildwood High School ,


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Most athletes feel fortunate
to reach a national title event
Ezra Scott Jones was part of a
relay team that took home
some hardware. Jones' 4x400
relay team from Mississippi
State University took seventh
in the NCAA Division I Track
and Field Meet in
Sacramento, Calif. on June 10.
Jones, 20, a former track star
at Wildwood High, ran the sec-
ond leg of the relay.
Mississippi State is located in
Starkville, Miss. He is a junior
there. He is scheduled to grad-
uate in December 2007.
Jones was just a little disap-
pointed. "It was a pretty good
experience," Jones said. "We
could have run better than we
did. We just had a mishap. Our
third legman was tripped up.
We should have finished sec-
ond."
He ran his best at nationals.
Jones ran a 44.9 in his split, his
personal best for his track
career. He also runs on the
4x100 and 4x200 relays and
the 200 meters.
The team ran a 3:05.9. The
team had a best ever time of


Jones ran a 44.9 in
his split, his personal
best for his track
career. The team had
a best ever time of
3:03.09 during the
season.


3:03.09 during the season.
He graduated from
Wildwood High in May 2003.
He earned a full track and
field scholarship to
Mississippi State. He was the
400-meter Class 2A state
champion in 2003. He won the
title at the University of
Florida in Gainesville.
"I knew I was going to win
going into it," Jones said of the
state title. "I felt like I wanted
it more than anyone else. I
pretty much ran the race by
myself."
In 2005, he was running for a
4x400 relay team that won the
national junior college title.
He was running for Wallace
State Community College in
Hanceville, Ala. "Winning the
national title at Wallace State


was more of a thrill," he said.
"I am very proud," said
Avon Hambrick, his mother.
"He used to ask to run along-
side the car as a five-year-old.
That was our sign that he
would be doing something
with track. That takes me
back
"I saw him win the state
championship. I watched the
nationals on TV He is doing
very well as a student and ath-
lete, majoring in psychology"
Jones played football and
basketball at Wildwood High.
He was coached in track by
Coach Khalil Tucker at
Wildwood High. He played
wide receiver and cornerback
in football and shooting guard
in basketball. He averaged 12
points per game in basketball.
"There is greatness in him,"
said Mrs. Hambrick.
Jones is already planning
his post-college career. "I
want to start off with social
work and then go into therapy
after that," Jones said. He
feels Coach Tucker was a
major influence in his life. "I
believe most of my success
was due to him," Jones said.
"He pushed me
harder to be better than I
was."

cohorts on the grassy field
for some dribbling exercis-
es.


British Soccer Camp was
not just about soccer.
Rather, kids gained knowl-
edge about other countries
as well. Here, after a day of
dribbles and drills out on
the field, these little lads
had fun painting their faces
before competing in the
camp's World Cup. From left
to right Jimmy Waldie,
Canyon Sovercool, Paxton
Cline, Natheniel Capps,
Anna Spruil and Jenny
Williamson were excited to
pick what team they wanted
to play on and which coun-
try to represent.


Each year, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) offers
exceptional dove hunting
opportunities throughout the
state. The FWC manages eight
special-opportunity dove
fields through its Dove Club -
the agency's special-opportu-
nity dove hunt program.
Beginning at 10 a.m. (EDT)
July 1, sportsmen can pur-
chase dove club permits at
any county tax collector's
office, authorized license
agent, online at
MyFWC.com/dove or by call-
ing toll-free 1-888-HUNT-
FLORIDA (486-8356). The
deadline to purchase permits
is 11:59 p.m. (EDT) Sept. 10.
Dove club permits are avail-
able on a first-come, first-
served basis and allow one
adult and one youth (under
age 16) to participate in all
scheduled hunts for a desig-
nated dove field (up to eight
days). These Saturday half-
day hunts cost $150 and
enable the permit holder and
youth to both take a daily bag
limit of birds.
Dove hunting opportunities
are in high demand, and these
special hunts offer the perfect
setting for friends and family
to hunt together in a social
atmosphere. Hunters who
purchase the annual permits
save more than half the cost of
regular daily permits for the
season.
There are three new spe-
cial-opportunity dove fields


that will be open this coming
season Allapattah Flats
Public Small-Game Hunting
Area (PSGHA) in Martin
County, Fussell Farm PSGHA
in Polk County and
Watermelon Pond PSGHA in
Alachua County.
The other five special-
opportunity dove fields
already are familiar to some
hunters, because they were
open last year. They are:
Schneider Farms PSGHA
(Escambia County), Caravelle
Ranch (Putnam County),
Dexter/Mary Farms Unit
(Volusia County), Hilochee
(Lake County) and Frog Pond
(Miami-Dade County).
Dove "day" permits also are
available for $35. These daily
permits enable one adult and
one youth (under age 16) to
hunt together but only allow
one bag limit of birds between
the two hunters.
Additionally, there is an
option to buy a $10 youth per-
mit at the same time a dove
day permit is purchased. The
youth permit allows the youth
to harvest his own daily bag
limit of birds, while hunting
under the supervision of the
adult dove day permit holder.

Interested hunters should
purchase permits early,
because demand for these
hunts often exceeds their
availability. For more infor-
mation on these great dove
hunting opportunities, visit
MyFWC.com/dove.

South Sumter Middle School teacher Stacey Morrison (left)
earned a $1,000 check from Bushnell Wal-Mart Supercenter for
her school, thanks to the support of her students and their par-

Sponaugle (shown center), who wrote dozens of comments
praising Morrison. Grant administrator Beth Hunt said there
were literally hundreds of written comments lauding Morrison's
positive attributes as a teacher.
