draw a large crowd, most of
those who observed appeared
to be pleased.

well," said World War II veter-

Cutler, who served in the
U.S. Air Force in Europe dur-

Development planned for Wildwood


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The developer of the well-
known Disney town
Celebration plans to create
another vast community on
1,000 acres of pastureland
recently annexed into the city
of Wildwood.
"We are in the beginning
stages of planning for a mas-
ter-planned community," said
Perry Reader, president of the
Florida division of Crosland,
Inc. and former president of


The Celebration Company.
"We don't look at ourselves
as a residential subdivision
developer," he said, adding
that the company takes into
consideration recreational
facilities, schools and nearby
places to shop.
Wildwood City Manager Jim
Stevens said the development
would provide "plenty of open
space" and create jobs in the
process.
"It's going to be a high-qual-
ity development, like
Celebration or The Villages,"
Stevens said.


Wildwood City Manager Jim Stevens said the
development would provide "plenty of open
space" and create jobs in the process.


The company has worked
on numerous developments in
the southeast and Florida
projects include two in Wesley
Chapel and another nearby on
State Road 54.
In the Tampa Bay area,
Crosland has created


Longleaf, a development with
"traditional design features,"
on part of a working cattle
ranch.
However, Reader said it is
still too early to tell what kind
or how many units would be
built at the Wildwood site.


"It's too soon for us to tell.
We're undertaking a market
study (but) we haven't deter-
mined a specific type," he
said.
"At this point our vision is a
residential community with a
mix of retail or commercial as
would be necessary to support
the community and surround-
ing residents."
Reader said he anticipates
the community would be a

A single-vehicle accident on
Interstate 75 near Sumterville
Sunday left one child dead and
two adults injured.
The accident occurred at 7:40
p.m., when three people were
headed southbound on the
interstate in a 1999 four-door
Mazda car, according to a
Florida Highway Patrol report.
The vehicle left the roadway
and traveled onto the west
shoulder, according to the
report.
The car continued south-
bound on the shoulder until the
front of the vehicle struck a
tree.
The car then rotated clock-
wise and came to a stop on the
west shoulder of the road, next
to the tree, facing southwest.
One passenger, Rebecca
Sypes, 11, was killed in the
crash and the driver of the vehi-
cle, 48-year-old Nigel Reesor, of
Aurora, Ontario, Canada, was
transported to Orlando
Regional Medical Center for
treatment of injuries, according
to the report.
The second passenger, 38-
year-old Dawn DeVille,
received mih r injuries,
according to thoeport.

impact) because of the size of
the land, but a final decision
has not been made.
In Sumter County, a devel-
opment with at least 750 units
is considered a DRI, which
requires approval by the state
Department of Community
Affairs.
Reader said initial plan-


ning for the development
should be completed by the
end of 2006.
In addition to this 1,000-
acre parcel, which was owned
by William Bigham at the time
of annexation, another large
piece of land was brought into
the city last month.
Another 1,950 acres owned
by the Bigham Hide Company
was annexed.
Robert Smith, Wildwood's
growth development coordi-
nator, said there was current-
ly no intent to develop the
1,950 acres at that time.

Sheriffs Mobile Command built for SWAT operations


OUIDA WILLIAMS
Times Correspondent

No more are the days of
dragging hard-core criminals
pack to the sheriff's station.
Nowadays, deputies wheel
the station right to the offend-
brs.
Less than a year ago, the
Sumter Sheriff's Office
ordered a specially designed
station to be built, giving it the
hiame Mobile Command. It
pan be seen atop a set of trail-
er wheels, rolling smack dab
into the face of any danger.
: When in hot pursuit of a sus-
pect, the new Mobile
Command Station allows
deputies to get right where
they need to be; because it's
novable, they can actually
zoom their many tracking
devices right alongside them.
:1he Mobile Command's pri-
inary function is for communi-
cation, to help resolve
heinous crimes, among many
bther police matters.
"It's like a mobile sheriff's
station," said Chief Deputy
Jack Jordan. "We bring it right


where we need it. But we use
it only for major operations.
Anytime there's a SWAT oper-
ation, missing child or person
that requires more than a few
hours in the field, we use the
Mobile Command to track
them."
But that's not all. It's filled
with some serious gadgets too.
"It has what we call a 'clon-
er' inside of it ... think of it as
cloning all radios into one
channel. It can sense any
radio frequency and .detect
their codes, enabling officers
to connect with any radio in
the world. Fire Rescue, Coast
Guard, and police can all be
circuited into one channel
through this thing ... it really
comes in handy. Officers
establish contact with
whomever they need to...all
around the world," said Tom
Fields, assistant coordinator
for Radio Emergency
Services.
"Everything that can be
done in the sheriff's station
can be done there," Jordan
said. "It contains a complete
radio pack and a satellite dish
that gives us total access to all


criminal justice systems. It
helped us last year during the
inmate escapes, which was a
30-hour operation."
But this Mobile Command
not only helps deputies track
offenders, it has other fea-
tures too. Naturally, everyone
knows officers are thrown into
the midst of some tense chas-
es. But the mobile station pro-
vides a pleasing atmosphere
for law enforcement's some-
what displeasing situations.
Inside, the new Mobile
Command has a kitchen, air
conditioning, generators, a
septic system, and holds 125
gallons of fresh water. On top
of all that, it's energy efficient.
"We can run it on site with-
out having to refuel the gener-
ators for up to 35 days," said
Jordan. '"Just this past October,
we took it to the middle of the
county for a drug roundup. We
were able to issue over 70 war-
rants."
Certainly, the Mobile
Command proves itself as a
fast-moving machine, equip-
ped in handling any catastro-
phe that may arise. Simply
put, it has everything deputies


need and more. So how much
did the specially designed
center cost?
"$150,000 with everything in
it, inside and out. And that
was done with grant
money...hardly any tax dol-
lars," Jordan confirmed.
"You can't find one like this
for less than $350,000. We've
seen some that cost over a mil-
lion dollars, and they can't do
half the things ours can do. We.
were able to get ours built
cheap and with grant money."
But wait. The Mobile
Command does even more. It
also aids in training amateurs
how to radio for help, in case
of a hurricane or tornado. Just
this Sunday, the ARES
(Amateur Radio Emergency
Services) got some good prac-
tice in managing these high-
tech frequencies inside the
Mobile Command.
"It's used as a combined
effort between emergency res-
cue and Sumter police. For
the past 24 hours, we've been
inside of it, training amateurs
in radio. I mean we all
remember the catastrophe in
New Orleans last year after


Sumter Police's new Mobile Command is ready to move. Sitting
on top of 18 wheels, deputies motor it wherever they need it.


Hurricane Katrina. All their
systems had shut down.
Amateur radio was all they
had during it.
"There were over 1,000
amateur radio operators
assisting and providing com-
munication ... and they were


all volunteers," Fields contin-
ued.
Mobile Command not only
serves Sumter County, but if
trouble calls elsewhere,
deputies will wheel it to
neighboring counties as well -
if needed.


Day recei

The Sumter County
Sheriff's Office is proud to
announce that Sgt. Juliane
Day was awarded with the
2005 Accreditation Manager
pf the Year Award. The
Accreditation Manager of the
Year Award honors a highly
inotivated individual who has
exhibited the skills to accom-
plish the agency's goals of
achieving accreditation and
Mll related activities.
: Sergeant Day was selected
based on her innovation and
creativity in achieving signifi-
cant program and organiza-
tional results for her agency,
her contributions to improv-
ing the agency's internal and
external services, and for
establishing relationships and
promoting cooperation.
. It is evident to anyone who
knows Day that she has a
hands-on work ethic and an
infectious "can do" attitude.
In 2000, she helped her
agency become the smallest
capacity jail in Florida to
earn accredited status and, in
addition, achieve compliance
\ith 100 percent or the appli-
bable standards.
. Since that time, she has
helped her agency earn reac-
bredited status two more
times. Within the Sumter
County Sheriff's Office
Detention Facility, Day has
earned a reputation for cre-
atively working through prob-
lems instead of around them.
She is credited with develop-
ing internal policies and pro-
bedures that allow her facili-

Man who robbed,
injured elderly
woman found in
Palm Beach

AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer


Last week, police caught up
with a man in Palm Beach
County suspected of robbing
and seriously injuring an eld-
erly woman as she walked
near a shopping center in The
Villages a few weeks earlier,
according to a sheriff's office
press release.
Christopher Dale
Nunemaker, 32, of Palm
Beach Gardens, was arrested
for robbery by sudden snatch-
ing and .aggravated battery
with great bodily harm,
according to the release.
He was held at a Palm


Beach County jail without
bond.
The woman was walking in
the parking lot of a shopping
plaza off U.S. Highway 441 in
The Villages on June 14 in the
late afternoon when the man
grabbed her purse.
The woman was injured as
she attempted to fight back,
according to Sheriff's Lt.
Steve Binegar.
"She fought back and she
tried to retain her purse and
was actually pulled by the
individual," he said.
"She was actually slung try-
ing to hold on to her purse" as
the subject started to take off,
in the vehicle.
Wittnesses came out from
inside the stores attempting to
get a description of the robber,
he said.
Nunemaker was arrested
two weeks later in Palm
Beach County.
The woman suffered a bro-


ken arm as well as cuts and
bruises in the fray, according
to the press release.
She was taken to The
Villages Regional Medical
Center for treatment, Binegar
said.
The victim's property was
found in a stolen vehicle in
Marion County, according to
the release.
The vehicle had been stolen
from Palm Beach County.
Wwhen authorities retur-
ned the vehicle to Palm
Beach, its owner found the
Sumter victim's property
inside, according to Sheriff's
Lt. Steve Binegar.
He said the victim was a few
days away from purchasing a
home in The Villages and was
staying with friends at the
time of the robbery.
Nunemaker has an exten-
sive criminal history that
includes drug-related
charges, Binegar said.


Sgt. Juliane Day was awarded with the 2005 Accreditation
Manager of the Year Award.


ty's staff to work more effi-
ciently, with a significant
reduction in the number of
forms needed.
While guiding her agency's
accreditation efforts over the
past eight years, she has also
directly assisted over 14 other
jails helping them earn their
accredited status many of
these have been the smaller
facilities with limited


resources and difficult chal-
lenges. Day shares her enthu-
siasm for accreditation and
promotes its benefits at every
opportunity by visiting other
agencies and serving as a
facilitator during accredita-
tion training sessions. All of
these accomplishments and
professional \ qualities make
Juliane a worthy recipient of
this award.

it was to them.
So again, as one of the people
who drop by to eat at the marina

the patriotism, for being neighbor-

Grill Safety tips for cooking meat


ummer is here and it's time to
clean off the grill and dust off
the cooler for some fun outdoor
cooking. It is also time to
brush up on your food
safety knowledge to
reduce the chance of food-
borne illnesses that are
associated with outdoor
cooking. Grilling is fun
for everyone. Follow these
steps to make sure your
meat is safe to eat.
Preparing


Shopping |
When shopping, buy MAi
cold food like meat and MAD
poultry last, right before MAC
checkout. Separate raw
meat and poultry from
other food in your shopping cart. To
guard against cross-contamination,
which can happen when raw meat or
poultry juices drip onto other food,
put packages of raw meat and poultry
into plastic bags.
Drive home directly from the gro-
cery store. Always refrigerate perish-
able food within two hours, or one
hour if the temperature is above 90F.
Place meat and poultry in the refrig-
erator immediately Freeze poultry
and ground meat that won't be used
within one or two days; freeze other
meat within four or five days.
Defrosting
Completely defrost meat and poul-
try before grilling so it cooks more
evenly. For safety, thaw meat in the
refrigerator or thaw sealed packages
in cold water You can defrost the food
in the microwave if the food will be
placed immediately on the grill.


r
II
)[


Marinating
Meat and poultry can be marinated
for several hours or days to tenderize-
or add flavor. Marinate
f food in the refrigerator, not
on the counter If some of
the marinade will be used
as a sauce on the cooked
food, put aside a portion of
the marinade for that pur-
pose before putting raw
meat and poultry in it. But
if the marinade used on
raw meat or poultry will be
reused, make sure you
bring it to a boil first to
THA destroy any harmful bacte-
Dox ria.
- Transporting
When carrying food to
another location, keep it cold. Use an
insulated cooler with sufficient ice or
ice packs to keep the food at 40F or
below. Pack food right from the refrig-
erator into the cooler immediately
before leaving home. Keep the cooler
in the coolest part of the car.
Keeping Cold Food Cold
Keep meat and poultry refrigerated
until ready to use. Only take out what
will be used immediately.
When using a cooler, keep it out of
the direct sun by placing it in the
shade or shelter. Avoid opening the lid
too often, which lets cold air out and
warm air in. Pack beverages in one
cooler and perishables in a separate
cooler
Keeping Everything Clean
Be sure there are plenty of clean
utensils and platters. To prevent food-
borne illness, don't use the same plat-
ter and utensils for raw and cooked


meat and poultry. Harmful bacteria
present in raw meat and poultry and
their juices can contaminate safely
cooked food.
If you're eating away from home,
find out if there's a source of clean
water If not, bring water for prepara-
tion and cleaning, or pack clean cloths
and/or wet towelettes for cleaning sur-
faces and hands.
Cooking
Precooking
Precooking food partially in the
microwave, oven, or stove is a good
way to reduce grilling time. Just make
sure that the food goes immediately
on the preheated grill to complete
cooking.
Cooking Thoroughly
Cook food to a safe internal temper-
ature to destroy harmful bacteria.
Meat and poultry cooked on the grill
often brown very fast on the outside.
Use a food thermometer to be sure the
food has reached a safe internal tem-
perature. Whole poultry should reach
180F; breasts, 170F. Hamburgers
made of ground beef should reach
160F; ground poultry, 165E Beef,
veal, and lamb steaks, roasts, and
chops can be cooked to 145E All cuts
of pork should reach 1600E
Never partially grill meat or poultry
and finish cooking later.
Reheating
When reheating fully cooked meats
like hot dogs, grill to 165F or until
steaming hot
Keeping Hot Food Hot
After cooking meat and poultry on

Lovett story was
inappropriate, inaccurate
I'm compelled to respond to Mr.
Reichman's article on Harry Lovett
in last week's paper.
His statement concerning Harry's
legal past was number one, totally
inappropriate and secondly inaccu-
rate because he didn't conclude with
Harry's exoneration.
Harry Lovett was a member of
Tom Brokaw's "Greatest
Generation" to whom our generation
owes a great debt.


Harry was in the D-Day invasion
and while advancing in the hedge
row country of France was shot three
times in his upper chest. He lost one
lung, yet eight months later was back
in combat and in Berlin when
Germany surrendered. Tough,
unselfish doesn't begin to describe
him.
Mr. Reichman, Harry did this to
. allow you the privilege of expressing
your right of free speech and a free
press. Your failure to accept respon-
sibility along with privilege is the
great sin of most journalism today.
You rank right up there with Peter
Jennings, who castigated the USA for
delivering the knockout punch to
Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end a
fight which Japan started.
Harry, however, probably finds
your comments amusing because he
is in the "eternal city" in the pres-
ence of the King of Kings and Lord of
Lords, probably praying for you.
Harry could care less about an
apology; however you owe his family
an apology for dragging their family
name through the mud without any
justification.
Their .father, grandfather and
uncle was more of a man than you or
I could ever hope to be.

Earlier this year, it settled a $220 mil-
lion class-action suit by its sharehold-
ers. More civil actions are pending,
many to do with its Louisiana hold-
ings during Hurricane Katrina. Also,
California lawsuits concerning its car-
diology practices are too disturbing to
describe. In 1994, as NME, it paid
about $400 million in fines for virtual-
ly the same federal crimes of creating
claims. Mind you, THC/NME has
never admitted to federal crimes.
Despite this horrendous history, no
movement has ever been put into
motion to close this organization.
Item: HCA Inc., formerly known
as Columbia/HCA and HCA, had so
many federal claims for false billings
that their total agreed settlements
(again, no wrongdoing) with the DOJ
amounted to something just shy of $2
billion.
My dear friend, I could go on and
on. But for what cause? I can't use all
my ink in one column. The ERISA Act
of 1974 successfully eliminated, or at
least put a huge dent in, what was the
backbone of this great nation, the dis-
appearing middle class.
God bless, and God bless America!

the grill, keep it hot until
served-at 140F or warmer.
Keep cooked meats hot by
setting them to the side of the
grill rack, not directly over
the coals where they could
overcook. At home, the
cooked meat can be kept hot
in a warm oven (approxi-
mately 200F), in a chafing
dish or slow cooker, or on a
warming tray.
Serving the Food
When taking food off the
grill, use a clean platter. Don't
put cooked food on the same
platter that held raw meat or
poultry. Any harmful bacteria
present in the raw meat
juices could contaminate
safely cooked food.
In hot weather (above
90F), food should never sit
out for more than one hour.
Storing Leftovers
Refrigerate any leftovers
promptly in shallow contain-
ers. Discard any food left out
more than two hours (one
hour if temperatures are
above 90F).
Safe Smoking
Smoking is cooking food
indirectly in the presence of a
fire. It can be done in a cov-
ered grill if a pan of water is
placed beneath the meat on
the grill. Meats can also be
smoked in a "smoker," which
is an outdoor cooker espe-
cially designed for smoking
foods. Smoking is done much
more slowly than grilling, so
less tender meats benefit
from this method, and a natu-
ral smoke permeates the
meat. The temperature in the
smoker should be maintained
at 2500F to 3500F for safety.
* Use a food thermometer to be
sure the food has reached a
A safe internal temperature.
Pit Roasting
4 Pit roasting is cooking meat
in a large, level hole dug in
the earth. A hardwood fire is


been lower than that of state

schools.

built in the pit, requiring
wood equal to about two and
one-half times the volume of
the pit. The hardwood is
allowed to burn until the
wood reduces and the pit is
half-filled with burning coals.
This can require four to six
hours' burning time.
Cooking meat with this
method may require ten to 12
hours or more and is difficult
to estimate. A meat ther-
mometer must be used to
determine the meat's safety
and doneness. There are
many variables that can
affect cooking time, such as
outdoor temperature and the
size and thickness of the
meat.
Grilling and Cancer
Some studies suggest there
may be a cancer risk related
to eating food cooked by high-
heat cooking techniques such
as grilling, frying, and broil-

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


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

SECO announces new


online storm center


Site enhances

communications

with members
Sumter Electric Coopera-
tive (SECO) today announced
that it has developed a brand
new Web site to share power
outage information with its
member/customers and other
interested parties.
The site can be accessed
from SECO's newly revised
corporate Web site at
www.secoenergy.com or peo-
ple can go directly to www.sec-
ostormcenter.com.
SECO CEO Jim Duncan
said, "We place great empha-
sis on good communication
with our members and others
who have an interest in our
cooperative. The creation of
SECO's online storm center is
another indication of how
important we believe it is to
keep people apprised of our
activities. I think everyone in
our service territory will find


this latest innovation very
useful."
Visitors to secostormcen-
ter.com will be able to view
interactive maps of SECO's
service territory and will be
able to see where outages
have occurred and follow
power restoration progress.
Additionally, SECO customers
can report a power outage at
their address and check the
outage repair status by utiliz-
ing this site. Another handy
feature is the ability to look at
the summary page and see
how many people are out of
power and how many have
been restored in any of the
seven counties SECO serves.
The site currently updates its
information every 15 minutes.
"This site is going to be par-
ticularly helpful to those look-
ing for information on power
status during a major named
storm that impacts our,area,"
Duncan noted.
Barry Bowman, SECO
Director of Public Affairs,
agreed and said, "We discov-
ered during the hurricanes of
2004 and 2005 that many of


our members found a way to
utilize the internet to commu-
nicate with us even though
they had experienced an out-
age. Some used computers at
work for that purpose. Some
members used personal com-
puters with battery back-ups
or laptops with internal bat-
teries. A number of members
used computers in public
facilities that had power.
Others had evacuated and
were checking on status from
computers outside the storm
impacted region."
"So," concluded Bowman,
"the new online storm center
should prove helpful to our
members, county emergency
operations centers, the media
and any other interested par-
ties."
SECO serves well over
152,000 members in parts of
Lake, Marion, Sumter, Citrus,
Pasco, Levy and Hernando
counties. The Co-op mardin-
tains nearly 10,000 miles of
energized power lines and 43
substations in a service terri-
tory the size of the State of
Delaware.

Eagle Roofing company hunts


for people to fill job positions


Edith Zier, accompanied by her dog Grinch, must use her wheelchair for trips to businesses and
the doctor's office from her home on West Street in Bushnell. She says the trips can be danger-
ous without sidewalks.


Trying to make it



with out sidewalks


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

There's nothing scary
about West Street in
Bushnell.
Small homes and trees hug
the neighborhood roadway
that leads from State Road 48
to County Road 476.
But, if you're reliant on a
wheelchair to get around, all
of a sudden, traveling on West
Street can be scary and a dan-
gerous proposition.
That's how West Street res-
ident Edith Zier views her sit-
uation. There are no side-
walks near her home, only
patches of grass on both sides
of the road.
At 85, Mrs. Zier is becoming
increasingly dependent on
her motorized wheelchair as
a means of getting around.
She must use the wheelchair


as transportation from her
home to local businesses and
her doctor's office. It is a frus-
trating proposition.
"I'd like to get our local
politicians in my chair and let
them take a ride to the doc-
tor's office to see what it's
like," Mrs. Zier said. "It's very
dangerous."
Atrip for medical care or to
the store to buy groceries
means Mrs. Zier must make
her way along the road until
she reaches the sidewalks on
State Road 48. While the trip
is only about half a mile long,
it can be dangerous without
sidewalks, she says.
"I'm not the only one who
uses this road like this," she
said. "There are senior citi-
zens on three-wheelers and
children walking to school.
"They need to have side-
walks."
Daylight hours are bad but


early morning hours on the
road are worse, she said. "I
take my flashlight along with
me but when it's still dark you
don't feel safe."
But the lack of sidewalks
isn't the only dilemma for
someone bound to a wheel-
chair, she said. Once you get
onto the sidewalks, problems
continue.
Sometimes people leave
their trashcans for pickup on
the sidewalks and other peo-
ple park their cars there.
They can be difficult to get
around, she said.
"Sometimes, I have to get off
the sidewalk and go through
sand and mud just to make
my way around.
"I just wish people would
be more considerate."
Mrs. Zier said she's contact-
ed local officials but nothing
has been done to solve the
problem.

Times Correspondent

"The Eagle has landed," is
their motto. And it's landed
right here in Sumter County.
Eagle Roofing Products
LLC, a new company to
Sumter, has spotted its mark
and already swooped down to
break ground on County Road
470, between 1-75 and U.S. 301
in Sumterville.
"We're based out of Rialto
California. This will be our
6th plant," said Adrianne
Robledo, human resources
manager.
Covering 57 acres of land,
Eagle Roofing's new plant will
be ready for operation in mid
October.
"We have five other plants,
which are spread throughout
California and1 Phoenix,
Arizona, all of them success-
ful. And once we finish this
one here, it will provide
between 200 to 300 jobs for
people in Sumter," he said.
The company's reason for
landing: to produce and man-
ufacture concrete roof tile.
"We still have a lot of posi-
tions available," said
Robledo.
The company offers a wide
variety of positions. Whether
one prefers working in an
office, or outside in the sun
and air.
It all begins on the inside of
the plant where the tile is
formed on production lines,
manned by many people.
From there, the tile is hauled
out on forklifts and stored in
the yard.And while all that is
going on, .an administration
staff works inside the offices,
handling an assortment of
duties.
"There are many entry-
level jobs available. We are
looking for electricians;'
machine operators; forklift
drivers; yard support labor-
ers. And there are still admin-
istration openings too, in


Eagle Roofing clears the land, making way for its new tile pro-
duction plant.

Roofing Products' new facility.


accounting; customer service;
sales representatives and
supervisors. We'll be training
everyone,"' he confirmed.
Along with these jobs come
a competitive salary and ben-
efits as well.
According to Robledo,
Eagle Roofing will offer 401K;
profit sharing; college tuition
reimbursement; sick and
vacation pay; bonuses; as well
as medical, dental and vision
insurance.
And although the company


has already marked territory
out West, this is the Eagle's
first time soaring over to the
East.
"We're a successful compa-
ny, said Robledo. "This is our
first time in the southeast.
We're just hoping to breaking
ground. And we're starting
here in Sumter."
Anyone interested, call
Adrianne Robledo at 602-763-
2793, or e-mail resume to

tries.com.

Crape Myrtle: A rewarding small tree or shrub about DOT exams


A af %-.


The Crape Myrtle is one
of the most rewarding
small trees or large
shrubs for the landscape. Its
ease of propagation, long
blooming period and ability to
grow in nearly every soil con-
dition makes the crape myrtle
a widely used and greatly
admired ornamental.
The flowering season for
crape myrtle begins in June
and continues into fall. Each
long cluster of flowers is com-
posed of hundreds of one to
two-inch, red, pink, white,
lavender or purple flowers.
Leaves are often garnet tinged
in the spring, glossy dark
green in the summer, and dull
to intense yellow, orange or
red in the autumn. When the
leaves fall in the winter, the
crape myrtle becomes a living
sculpture. The trunk and
branches have an attractively
gnarled, twisted character'
with smooth bark varying in
color from light straw to rich
deep brown. Patches of bark
fly off in early summer to
reveal new bark ranging in
color from light pink to pale
green.
Crape myrtle is very versa-
tile in the residential land-
scape. Single-trunked or
multi-trunked specimens
make ideal small shade trees
for a sunny deck, terrace, or
entrance walkways. Multi-
trunked plants can be used as


a visual barrier, a specimen
plant in the garden, or a dom-
inant landscape feature when
planted singly or in groups.
Semi-dwarf and dwarf types
are suitable for foundation
plantings, use in containers,
or even as large groundcovers.
Occasional pruning may be
required to maintain desired
size and form. Background
plantings of evergreen shrubs


or trees may be employed to
further emphasize the floral
spectacle of crape myrtle.
Crape myrtle can be used to
create an alleee" in a large
garden area. Allees are usual-
ly long walkways where the
plants are spaced so their
canopies touch and enclose
the pathways. There is even a
patented, miniature weeping
crape myrtle variety for use as


a bonsai plant or in hanging
baskets.
Crape myrtles are available
in many flower colors and
plant heights. Plant heights
are characterized as dwarf
(less than 3 feet), semi-dwarf,
(3 to 6 feet), medium, (6 to 12
feet) and tall (greater tan 12
feet).
Crape myrtle should be
located in an area that


receives full sunlight most of
the day. Otherwise, a weakly,
spindly plant with a few flow-
ers can be expected. Plants
growing in shaded areas will
also be plagued by plant dis-
eases such as powdery
mildew.
Crape myrtle tolerates a
wide range of soil conditions,
but grows best in heavy loam
that is slightly acidic (pH5.0 to


6.5). Nutrient requirements
are minimal; high fertility lev-
els produce excessive vegeta-
tive growth and fewer flower
panicles. Applications of 6-6-6
or 8-8-8 fertilizer in early
spring at the rate of 1 to 2
pounds per 100 square feet of
planting bed may be benefi-
cial to established plants,
especially those growing in
poor soils. Mulches of pine
bark or hardwood chips are
beneficial in retaining soil
moisture and minimizing soil
temperature fluctuations dur-
ing summer.
Heavy pruning must be
done each year, in February, if
large specimen type blooms
are desired. However, one of
the most fascinating aspects of
the crape myrtle is its unusual
plant form. When the form is
destroyed by severe pruning,
then the blooms will be all
that remains for one to enjoy.
By a selective method of prun-
ing, the unusual sculptured
form, flowers and colorful
foliage make it a plant with
year round charm. On medi-
um or large-size plants cut
every twig that is smaller than
a pencil.
Frequently, crape myrtle is
attacked by aphids and white
fly. Aphids are small green
colored lice-like insects that
suck the sap and cause small-
deformed leaves. The white
fly and aphids excrete a hon-


eydew on which a black fun-
gus (sooty mold) lives. Booth
aphids and white fly can be
controlled by spraying with an
appropriate insecticide.
Powdery mildew is a com-,
mon disease of crape myrtle,
especially when it is grown in
damp shaded areas. This fun-
gus disease causes the plants
to be unsightly, but also can
cause some defoliation and
actual death of severely
infested stems. Control can be
achieved by spraying with an
appropriate fungicide or
planting resistant cultivars.
Remember to always follow
the pesticide label.
Plant clinics are held at the
extension office at 7620 SR
471 Suit # 2 in Sumter County
793-2728 on Thursdays from
10 a.m. to 4p.m., as well as 1 to
4pm 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 Gardeners Norm
Isbell and Martin Grum at the
Community Center in Oxford
(corner C.R. 106 and 107) from
1 to 3 p.m.
Martin Grum is a Sumter
County Master Gardener, for
help with any garden or land-
scape advice call the Sumter
County Extension office at
352-793-2728.


There have been numerous
television and news articles
focusing on the increase in
highway fatalities involving
long distance truck drivers,
school bus drivers, and tour
bus drivers.
The "increase in fatalities
has prompted a re-assess-
ment of the state Department
of Transportation (DOT) med-
ical exam.
Patricia Cheston, PA-C does
a large number of DOT exams
in the Urgent Care
Department at Thomas E..
Langley Medical Center.
"Recommendations for
new guidelines are scheduled
for release in mid 2007, at that
time, it is proposed that all
medical examiners perform-
ing DOT physical exams will
require certification under a
national registry," says
Cheston. "This new process is
designed to ensure a uniform
standard of competency
throughout the industry by
health care professionals who
are knowledgeable of the
physical and mental demands
associated with operating a
commercial motor vehicle."
Langley and the Urgent
Care Department Team plan
to be ready for the changes in
2007 to provide a seamless
service to the commercial
drivers in Sumter County.
Ultimately, it is hoped that
this improvement will result
in fewer highway fatalities.

Adopt sweet Adeline


SweetAdeline is a beauti-
ful young adult Walker
Hound who is
playful and loving.
True to her hound
heritage, Adeline's
nose will take her to
places unknown, so
she would need a
secured fenced in
yard to romp and
play in. Going for
walks is fun too. If
you can provide the
home Adeline
needs, call the LIN
H u m a n e GRA
Society/SPCA of
Sumter County at
793-9117 or e-mail us at:
humane@sum.net. To view
other animals needing homes,
visit our website at:
www.hsspca.org.
Responsible pet people
have always kept their ani-
mals current on vaccinations
and have them spayed and
neutered. Now responsibility
must be taken to the next
level. With the real threat of
another active hurricane sea-
son, every pet owner should
have an evacuation plan in
place for their pet.
If passed the "PETS" (Pets
Evacuation and Transpor-
tation) bill soon to be voted on
in congress, will require local
governments to include pets
in their evacuation plan. This
means that never again would
we be forced to leave our
beloved pets behind. But it


N


does not mean that the gov-
ernment will be responsible
for taking care of
" our pets. That
responsibility
remains with each
and every one of us.
Prepare now.
Identification on
your pet is an
imperative and the
more the better.
Have your pet
micro-chipped.
Keep an identifica-
IDA tion tag worn on his
VES or her collar. Have
- leashes and har-
nesses ready. Have
a pet carrier with you. Bring


bowls and enough food and
water to last two weeks.
Remember to pack any
medications your pet may
require.
Have a copy of your pet's
current rabies shot record
and other vaccination
records.
Pack a picture of you and
your pet in the event you
become separated. Carry a
favorite toy or blanket to help
your pet in a stressful situa-
tion.
You will not have the time to
prepare once the evacuation
orders are given. Prepare now
to assure you and your pet get
through the disaster safely.

Wildwood wins Dixie Youth Majors sub-district tournament


On June 30 and July 1, the
Dixie Youth Baseball Majors
Sub-District Tournament was
played in Ridge Manor
Teams participating were
Wildwood, Bushnell,
Belleview and Ridge Manor.
The Wildwood team finished
in first place by defeating
Bushnell on Friday evening
and Belleview on Saturday
morning in two very hard-
fought ballgames.
On Friday evening,
Wildwood was down 0-2 after
two innings. Wildwood's start-
ing pitcher, Kyle Stollar, who
had struck out four Bushnell
batters in two innings, was
relieved by Garrett Hurst and
Shawn Aten, who each pitched
two innings. Hurst and Aten
each struck out two of the bat-
ters they faced. Crucial defen-
sive plays by Jalen Gooden,
Jake Phillips, Andrew Terry
and De'varreus Gibson helped
to hold Bushnell scoreless for
the remainder of the game.
Wildwood's bats came alive
in the fourth inning when
Gooden and Cody Holton each
reached by singles and Phillips
was walked to load the bases.
Hurst singled and brought
Gooden in to score. Aten Was
walked with bases loaded and
Holton scored to tie the game.
Matthew McKinney then
reached on a single that scored
Phillips and Hurst to give


Wildwood the 4-2 lead.
The following morning,
Wildwood defeated Belleview
7-5. Jake Phillips, the starting
pitcher, was relieved by Kyle



Wildwood, Bushnell and
Belleview advance to the
district tournament, that
begins Saturday, July 8,
in Oak Griner.





Stollar (who pitched 1 two-
thirds innings and struck out
four batters) and Cody Holton.
Wildwood was down 0-3 in
the third inning when Garrett
Hurst was brought in to pitch
with bases loaded. Hurst
pitched four innings and
allowed only three hits and
struck out six Belleview bat-
ters.
Key defensive plays were
made by Kody Whited, Levi
Terry, Jalen Gooden, Matthew
McKinney and Andrew Terry
Wildwood's offensive game
began in the fourth inning with
a two-out rally. Jalen Goodenr
and Cody Holton each reached
on singles. Jake Phillips
reached on a single that scored


Gooden and Garrett Hurst was

run in the fifth inning, which
Wildwood answered when
Matthew McKinney reached
on a single and De'varreus
Gibson was walked. Gooden
drove a single to left field that
scored.
McKinney and Gibson and
gave Wildwood the lead. Jake
Phillips then reached on a
double that scored Gooden
and brought the score to 7-5.
Hurst allowed no runs in the
top of the sixth by striking out
three of the four batters he
faced to end the game.
The members of the
Wildwood Team are: Shawn
"Cheesey" Aten, De'varreus
"D" Gibson, Cody "Skrimp"

travels around the state. In these areas, habitat


destruction is not the culprit.
Yet the quail population is
down even with ongoing and
excellent proven quail man-
agement programs in place.
I don't have any hard and
fast factual answers as to what
has happened to the native
quail population here in
Florida, but there are several
reasons in the past decades
that could have possibly
knocked the quail population
back considerably.
I have been hearing for


years from. fellow outdoors-
men that fire ants might be
taking a hard toll on quail,
especially right around the
time the baby quail hatch out.
Folks, with the massive num-
bers of fire ant hills that
abound in the woods and else-
where, I tend to believe
strongly that fire ants might
well be playing a major role in
the lack of quail.
I have a 10-acre hay field in
the back of my house and I bet
you Shug and I treated at least


200 fire ant nests in one after-
noon this past fall. If this is
any indication as to what is
taking place in areas that do
not receive any type of fire ant
control, the numbers of fire
ant nests in the wild has to be
staggering.
Again, I want to state that I
have no scientific knowledge
to back up my theory; but it is
a hard fact that fire ants are
not native to Florida, and the
quail population sure has
dropped since they invaded


our state.
Another possible culprit is
non-native exotic cattle egrets
that have invaded our state. I
know that some biologists
have been saying for years
that these non-native birds do
not eat baby quail but, my
good friends, I tend to dis-
agree. When a baby quail is
but a few days old, they are
very small and would not even
be a partial mouthful for a

ter that they can catch.
Just a couple of days ago I
was out prowling around in
my golf buggy when I noticed a
dark object hunkered down
about a hundred feet in front
of me on the trail I was going
down. To the right of the dark
object, which incidentally
turned out to be a mother wild
hen turkey, were five cattle
egrets, all intently watching
the mother turkey.
The mother hen turkey was
spread out and on top of her
brood of very young poults
and had them under her pro-
tective wings. I scared the
egrets away and slowly
backed away so the mother
hen could get her brood into
the nearby woods and safety.
There is no doubt in my
mind as I look back and dwell


on the situation I came across
that the egrets would have dis-
tracted the mother hen and
eaten those young turkey
poults. While a cattle egret
might not have been capable
of swallowing a whole baby
turkey down in one gulp, they
would have no problem killing
the small poults and eating
them in small pieces.
I know that all nature's ani-
mals depend on each other for
food, but cattle egrets and fire
ants are not native to Florida
and they are not in the natural
food chain that is conducive to
Florida.
So in that respect, until
proven otherwise with some
facts and I mean facts deriving
from hard and real hands-on
field research, I strongly sug-
gest that the non-native
species of fire ants and cattle
egrets are major culprits with
the drastic reduction of our
quail populations.
There is one other con-
tributing factor that might
well play into the quail popu-
lation reduction also and it is
huge numbers of cooper or
marsh hawks that are now in
the woods. However, that is
another story that I will
address on down the road one
day. The FWC does, by the
way, have some very good
research on this matter and
some of their findings might

There is no doubt that over-development of the once productive quail hunting areas around the state has probably had a major
impact in some places.

Dealing with weeds


Weeds are common to all
lawns. They increase the main-
tenance cost of a lawn, reduce
the lawn value and in some
cases contribute to allergies
and poisonings.
Weeds compete with all
,desirable plants for water,
nutrients and sunlight. They
also harbor insects and dis-
eases that might attack lawns,
trees and shrubs.
Lawns which are properly
maintained are less apt to be
plagued with weeds. A vigor-
ously growing lawn provides
little area for weed seeds to
germinate and will usually
smother out those that do ger-
minate.
If weeds become a problem,
one can hand pull the weeds or
one can use herbicide.
Herbicides (weed killers) are


available to control broadleaf
weeds and grassweeds in
lawns, around trees, ornamen-
tal plants, along ditches and
fence lines, in areas difficult to
maintain with mechanical
equipment and, in annual flow-
ering beds.
Before one can effectively
control weeds, one must first
be able to recognize the weed
problem. Weeds can be classi-
fied into three broad cate-
gories and are further distin-
guished by their lifecycle. As to
categories, a weed will be con-
sidered a grass, a broadleaf
weed or a sedge. Its lifecycle
will be annual, by-annual or
perennial. Grass weeds are
true grasses and have hollow
and round stems. Grass leaf
blades are much longer than
they are wide and have paral-


lel veins. Among the grass-
weeds are bermudagrass, crab-
grass, and sandpur. Broadleaf
weeds abound in great variety.
Most broadleaf weeds have
net-like veins in their leafs and
many. have showy flowers.
Broadleaf weeds include
chickweeds, dollarweed, hen-
bit and spurge. Sedges are a
group of grass-like weeds.
However, they are not true
grasses. Sedges have stems that
are solid and triangular in
shape.
Examples of sedges include
yellow nutsedge, sometimes
called nutgrass, purple
nutsedge and globe nutsedge.
Annuals complete their lifecy-
cle in less than one year and
are usually the easiest to con-
trol. There are summer-annual
weeds, such as crabgrass,
goosegrass and Florida pusley
and winter-annual weeds such
as annual bluegrass, common
chickweed and henbit


The second lifecycle weeds
are the biennials, which
require more than one year,
but less than two years, to com-
plete a life cycle. Cudweed and
bull thistle are examples of this
group.
The third, and most difficult
group to control are the peren-
nial weeds. They live for more
than two years and may possi-
bly live many years.
Perennials are classified
according to their method of
reproduction.
There are two types, the sim-
ple and the creeping perenni-
als. Simple perennials repro-
duce by seed only and exam-
ples are dandelion, dock,
broadleaf plantain and Florida
betony. Creeping perennials
reproduce by both seed and
vegetative parts and are the
most troublesome to control.
Examples of this group are
wild strawberry, creeping beg-
garweed, dollarweed (penny-


wort), bermudagrass, nutgrass
and johnsongrass.
Herbicides can be useful if
applied properly and incorpo-
rated into the overall weed
control program.
Both pre-emergence and
post-emergence herbicides, in
combination with mechanical
equipment, are needed for a
good weed control program.
Ask your local county exten-
sion agent about the proper
chemicals to use on specific
weeds.
Calibration of the equipment
used is an important part of
any herbicide application. This
is simply making the necessary
adjustments to the sprayers so
that the proper amount of
chemical will be applied to a
specific area.
Regardless of herbicide
used, care should be exercised
and the chemical must be
applied in accordance with
instructions on the manufac-


turer's label. Also be sure that
the herbicide you buy states on
the label that it can be used on
your particular lawn. Using the
incorrect herbicide on your
lawn can seriously damage it.
Remember that the healthier
a lawn, the better it can com-
pete with weeds.
So fertilize, mow and water
your lawn properly to create
and maintain a healthy lawn.
