Roberts, Chandler: candidates without a party


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Two incumbent county com-
missioners have left their
party ties behind them as they
seek re-election this fall.
Both Jim Roberts and Joey
Chandler left the Republican
Party last week in order to run
for re-election in November.,
Both commissioners qua li iied
for the race by filing as candi-
dates without any party affili-
ation, according to informa-
tion filed with the Supervisor
of Elections office.
The change means that


Roberts, and Chandler no
longer belong to a political
party, according to Supervisor
of Elections Karen Krauss.
Neither commissioner will
have to face their Republican
challengers, Doug Gilpin and
Garry Breeden, in the pri-
mary election.
Instead, Roberts and
Chandler will be candidates
on the ballot in November for
the general election.
The commissioners are not
considered Independents or
non-partisan candidates; they
are literally candidates with-
out a party.,
Both Roberts and Chandler


said they
made the
change to
circumvent a
political tac-
tic being
used by sup-
porters of
One Sumter
and manage-
ment of The
Villages to Chandler
oust the two
incumbents from office. by
throwing support to Gilpin (a
Republican candidate chal-
lenging Chandler) and'
Breeden:(a Republican candi-
date challenging Roberts).


Roberts, 58,
Bushnell,
represents
District 4
w h i I e
Chandler, 43,
represents
District 2.-
The. deci-
sion to leave
t ha e
Roberts Republican
.Party was not
an easy one for Roberts, a
Republican for* the past 38
years.
"It was a gut-wrenching
decision to leave the party
that I worked so hard in,"


Roberts said. In the 1990s, he
served as the chairman of the
Sumter County Republican
Club and as the party's state
committeeman.
"Leaving the party was a
tough decision to make
because the party and the
platform of the party means so
much to me," he said. *But, if
my party doesn't want me then
I have to do what's best for
this county and the future of
this county."
Roberts said a strong push
is being made from within
The Villages to get his
Republican challenger elect-
ed. Roberts points to the


almost $50,000 in campaign
contributions already
received by Breeden as an
indication of that support.
"So basically, they're under-
mining the system," he said.
"They're beating the One
Sumter drum and they're
undermining the system. Now,
we'll give every citizen a
chance to make a decision.
"The hardest thing I've ever
had to do in my life is change
my party affiliation but it
doesn't change anything that's
in my heart.

Visions of a sports complex
in south Sumter may have
moved a step closer to reality
last week when county com-
missioners voted 4 tol to con-
sider paying $1.3 million for
the land if that amount is
justified by appraisals.
The decision does not mean
the County Commission is
approving the project. That-
would be decided in a later
vote. The vote last week only
locks in the price until the
middle of September.
"Basically, all we did is tie
the property up at that price,"
Commissioner Randy Mask
said.
Now, the County
Commission is awaiting the
results of two property
appraisals to determine if the
land is worth the asking price.
"We can't do anything until
the property is appraised and
we're assured that it's worth
that amount," Mask said.
James Sizemore owns the
46 acres being considered for
purchase. The land is located
on Gant Lake Road and
County Road 471.
Mask said if the purchase is


approved, he envisions the
complex providing a variety
of sports and recreational
facilities including fields for
baseball, softball, football and
soccer.
"A walk-
ing track
would also
be plan-
ned," he t
said. "It
will pro-
vide a great
opportunity
for people -
and once,
people
catch on to
the vision, Francis
it will star Francis
moving forward with a lot of
momentum."
leask said the parks impor-
tant because m any south
Sumter residents are forced
to travel to Bushnell to use the
facilities at that city's Kenny
Dixon Sports Complex.
"A lot of people in Webster,
Linden and Center Hill areas
are forced to travel to
Bushnell to play sports and
that impacts ,the Bushnell
leagues," Mask said. "There

Sheriffs Office veteran retires after


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Over a span of three
decades, Travis Farmer has
worked through' every aspect
of law enforcement at the
Sumter County Sheriff's
Office.
Fellow officers and co-
workers wished him well last
week at a retirement party,
when the sheriff, who is also
his first cousin, presented him
with a plaque and service
weapon, a .357 Magnum


revolver.
The new retiree was given
his last promotion that day. He
left the agency Maj. Travis
Farmer.
"He's worked through every
facet of this agency," the sher-
iff said.
Sheriff Bill Farmer, who
began working there in 1971,
said back then there were
only four road deputies and a
total of 12 employees.
Sumter had less than 20,000
residents then.
In those early days, he
worked road patrol with


Travis, earning $400 per
month and working 12-hour
shifts six days a week.
"We both started as road
deputies and worked our-
selves up through the detec-
tive division and up to ranking
officers in the department,"
he said.
"We worked really close
together as deputies."
Travis was committed to
"doing his job and doing it
well."

For the second time this
year, armed robbers held up
the X-Mart Adult Supercenter
near Wildwood.
The adult entertainment
business, on State Road 44,
was robbed on Friday, July 21,
by four men, according to
sheriff's Lt. Bobby Caruthers.
At least one of the men was
armed with a handgun.
The robbery happened
about 4:30 a.m., when several
men wearing T-shirts over
their faces entered the busi-
ness armed with weapons,
Caruthers said. One of the
suspects told the two store
employees to get on the
ground. Money was then
removed from the cash regis-
ftornn d thp. cf


business and fled in an
unknown direction, according
to Caruthers.
The suspect with the hand-
gun was described as 6 feet
tall, with a thin build.
A sheriff's office tracking
dog was used and followed a
trail leading from the front
door to the east turning
behind the building, accord-
ing to Caruthers. The dog then
lost the track in the parking
lot.
Anyone with information
about the robbery should call
the Sumter County Sheriff's
Office Criminal Investigation
Division at 793-0222 or
CRIME LINE at 800-423-TIPS.
In April, a similar robbery
occurred at the business
when three men got away with

has worked for the same
agency for 25 years, also
spoke highly of the major.
"Travis was a very knowl-
edgeable law enforcement
officer. He helped me out
when I got started. He is well
versed in a lot of areas of his
job."
Now the department has
200 employees.
Most recently, Travis
worked supervising the court
division and working over
the civil and warrant divi-
sions until his retirement.
"They all had a good work-
ing relationship with him" in
the courts, the sheriff said.
"He's done a great job."

are a lot of kids who can't play
because their parents don't
have the opportunity to get
them there."
But paying more than a mil-
lion dollars for the land isn't
going over well with one coun-
ty commissioner.
Commissioner Michael
Francis balked at the amount
saying the county should find
a better price and a better
deal. "It's just an egregious
waste of county money."
Francis told commissioners
that the owner of the property
would be making a 300 per-
cent profit on the land if the
county bought it. He ques-
tioned why the County
Commission would pay $1.3
million when the owner pur-
chased the land in 2004 for
$430,000.
"I don't think it's a good way
to spend our money," Francis
said.
"Farms are laying empty.
They're not farming them
because it costs more," he
said.
"I've been told everybody's
broke down there and now
we're going to give a man $1.3
million when he bought it for
$430,000 something smells,"
Francis said.
In defense of the price,
Commission Chairman Joey
Chandler told Francis that


land he purchased for $3,000
six years ago is now selling for
$30,000 an acre. "It's happen-
ing everywhere in this county
and everywhere in this state."
But Chandler's comments
did not sway Francis.
"I can't imagine stepping
into a deal where we're going:
to pay 300 percent more.. .that .
bothers me greatly," Francis
said. "I will not be a part of a
commission that spends that,
kind of money for that kind of
profit in two years."
Commissioner Jim Roberts
attempted to assure Francis;
that the appraisals would
determine if the property was
worth the asking price.
"I'm not ashamed to spend
$1.3 million on the youth of
this county when we're will-
ing to spend $20 million for a
jail," Robert said.
While Francis said he sup-,
ported providing facilities for
Sumter youth, "I don't think
this is a good deal for us or the,
youth of this county," Francis,
said.
Mask attempted to reassure
Francis that the price is with-,
in reason. He said county staff
has been looking for appropri-
ate property for a park in,
south Sumter for the past year
and supports the purchase.
"I think it's fair to pay what
it appraises for," he said,.
adding that the board's de6i-'
sion shouldn't be based on the
profit that Sizemore would be
making.
"This is an outrageous prof4
it," Francis countered. "I don't
agree with it."

"Over the last three weeks,
I've been going door to door
throughout the county, I dis-
covered how important some
citizens feel my tenure is to
this county," Roberts said.
"I've been overwhelmed by
the number of Democrats
and Independents who have
been willing to change their
party affiliation just to vote
in the primary. I decided that
if they could make that kind
of sacrifice for me then I
could make that sacrifice for
them and run with no party
affiliation."
Chandler, 43, Lake

he's been receiving support
from residents asking how

'"A lot of people have come

Who stole Big Jim's big bike? Election qualifying ends

If you've spent any time at

on his big red Monster
Cruiser.
Unfortunately for Big Jim,
the extra-large bike was
stolen from his West Dade
Avenue home sometime
between Monday evening and

With qualifying for the 2006
election over as of last week,
six candidates for Sumter
County Commission are set to
face off in November.
Each of the two races for
County Commission seats has
one Republican candidate,
one Democrat arid one with
no party affiliation, leaving
commission candidates out of
the primary election.
November's election will
be the first since the passage
of the One Sumter initiative,
which gives voters through-
out the county the ability to
vote for County Commission
candidates regardless of
where the voter resides.


District 4 Commissioner
Jim Roberts, Bushnell, is set
to run against Garry Breeden
(R) and Miranda Skipper (D),
the latest person to announce
candidacy.
Skipper, 21, Bushnell, did
not return messages left by
the Times seeking comment.
She paid $2,367 to qualify last
week, according to informa-
tion filed with the Supervisor
of Elections office.
Roberts, a Republican for
38 years, qualified last week
as a candidate with no party
affiliation.
Joey Chandler (R), of Lake
Panasoffkee, who is also no
longer affiliated with a politi-
cal party, will contend with
Democratic challenger
Ronald Allen and
Republican Doug Gilpin,


both of Wildwood. Chandler,
formerly a Republican, is
seeking his fourth four-year
term.
Voters will be seeing local
candidates for School Board
on the ballot in the primary
election in September.
Ken Kelly, The Villages, is
challenging Linda
Winchester, Wildwood, for
the District 3 seat.
Roy Mitchell, Webster, is
running against current
School Board Member
Michael Foot, also of Webster,
for the District 5 seat.
Both Winchester and Foote
have served on the board

A request to rezone 240
acres for a private ranch com-
munity west of Bushnell will
be considered next month by
the county Zoning and
Adjustment Board.
MTV Developers is request-
ing the rezoning, from agricul-
tural and rural residential
designations, to a zoning for
MPD (master planned devel-
opment).
The hearing is scheduled at
6:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 7, on
the third floor of the court-
house.
The request is the culmina-
tion of attempts to introduce
new land use designations
into the county's
Comprehensive Land Use
Plan that would increase
housing density in some of the
county's rural areas.


MTV proposes 60
home sites on the
acreage, located
along County Road
575.


Traditionally, rural zoning
designations only allowed one
house for each 10 acres of
land.
MTV proposes 60 home sites
on the acreage, located along
County Road 575, about two
miles south of State Road 48.
The land includes about a
mile of frontage on the
Withlacoochee River.
Called Hidden River
Ranches, the gated communi-
ty would include single family
houses estimated at $225,000,
on at least one acre per house,
according to plans submitted'


to the county planning depart-
ment. About 151 acres would
be used as preserve, parks and
common areas, according to
the plans.
The county has sent out 30
letters to nearby property
owners informing them of the
rezoning request. No replies
have been submitted to the
department yet
In May, the County
Commission supported revis-
ing development criteria so
that a greater housing density
could be accomplished on
some agricultural properties,
based on a point system.
Developers obtain points for
providing certain amenities
that maintain a rural setting in
MPD zoning. Those amenities
vary from tree preservation to
sanitary sewer service.
Points achieved by Hidden
River Ranches will be
reviewed at the August board
meeting.

Francis owes Sumter


residents an apology

Your VOICE


C county Commissioner
Michael Francis owes resi-
dents of south Sumter
County an apology.
His remarks at a
County Commission last
week were in bad taste
and degrading to south-
ern county residents.
The incident hap- .
opened when Francis took -
a strong stand against
purchasing Webster land
for a county park
Francis was outraged
that the board is willing
to spend $1.3 million for B
46.3 acres. He was the REIC
lone commissioner vot-
ing against pursuing the
deal.
First off, we have no qualms
with Francis grilling the board
about the price. It's a substantial
amount of money. As stewards of
taxpayers' dollars, commissioners
.need to be very cautious about
paying such a large sum of money.
But the way Francis voiced his
concern was way out of line.
Instead of challenging the price,
.he kept challenging the profit that
the landowner would make. He
repeatedly slammed the idea of
paying for the land because the
owner would make a 300 percent
profit
The important issue is what the
land is worth, not what the owner

one of the richest men I
have ever known. No, Billy

stretch of the imagination
when it came to worldly or ,
material possessions. In
fact, to my knowledge, he
never owned a new car.
However, Billy's real
wealth was immeasurable
when it came to the real
lasting treasures of this
world. Billy's earthly treas-
ure was the love and kind- JA
ness that flowed from his AD.
big heart which he shared """
daily with his fellow man.
Billy, for many years, ran a real
estate office in Bushnell that was a
hang out for all of his buddies. Now
Billy's buddies included his hunting
and fishing buddies as well as a mul-
titude of other folks both men and
women who loved Billy very much.
Billy was the type of person that no
matter how low or down and out you
might be feeling he could boost your
sprits in a moment as he always had
time to listen to your problems. In
most cases, he could come up with
some suggestion that would instantly
make you feel better.
Actually there was not a whole lot of
business that got taken care of before
noon at Billy's office due to the fact
that so many of his buddies were
hanging out there just shooting the
bull for the most part. After noon how-

is making in profit.
Not only did he spend most of
his tirade on the profit margin
instead of the price, he then went
on to do some real dam-
Sage by insulting the peo-
ple who live in the south
end of the county.
Apparently, someone
told Francis that "every-
,f body's broke down
there."
Francis' comments
leave no room for doubt
that he doesn't hold the
south end of the county
OB or its residents in very
HMAN high regard. It also does-
n't appear that he's ever
taken the time to visit
with them.
If he would have made such
statements about his fellow
Villagers, he'd surely be looking
for something else to do come
election time.
Commissioners are supposed to
represent all Sumter County resi-
dents. Well, Francis at least has
lifted the veil of that illusion.
Simply put, they don't. And the
commissioner's statements last
week drive home that reality.
South Sumter residents have
every right to be angry about his
comments. They were delivered
in a smug manner and with such
bad taste that Francis needs to
apologize.


ever, you could usually find Billy at
his desk pecking away on his small
manual typewriter writing a letter of
recommendation for some-
one or corresponding with
one of his many friends.
This was the time that I
chose on many occasions
to get his advice and coun-
cil on untold matters over
the years.
Billy's first true love was
his family and he had two
fine sons and one beautiful
daughter that were the
apples of his eye. He also
MlIE had three grand children
WMS that he constantly bragged
-""""" on; two girls, Kellen and
Merritt, and a grandson,
Little Evan, his fishing buddy. He also
had a bunch of nephews and nieces
and a heap of others who, while they
may not have been actually kin to him,
still called him Uncle Billy.
Now Billy had many talents that he
was well noted for but I have to say
that his greatest was his ability to put
on a top notch cook-out whether it
was a Sumter County barbecue or one
of his famous fish frys. The Good Lord
only knows how many mullet and
bream he and his brother (Buddy) Joe
cooked over the years not only at their
hunt camp but to benefit the commu-
nity by raising untold thousands of
dollars for some conservation organi-
zation or other worthwhile project.

Congratulations to
Dixie Boys team
Congratulations to the Sumter
County Dixie Boys 13 Year Old All-
Star Team.
This group of boys was chosen from
four different Sumter County Dixie
Boys teams who had competed
against each other earlier in the regu-
lar season and showed potential to
represent the Sumter County Dixie
Boys 13 Year Olds as an All-Star Team.
The Dixie Boys 13 Year Old District
playoffs were held in San Antonio and
the Sumter County Dixie Boys 13 Year
Old All-Star Team were the runner-up
team. Due to their strong and compet-
itive showing at the District level they
were invited to compete at the State
competition.
The Sumter County Dixie Boys 13
Year Old All-Star Team completed
their season at the 2006 Dixie Boys 13
Year Old State competition in
Sebring, Florida.
We have watched these boys turn
into mature, respectable young men
through their commitment of hard
work, dedication and discipline dur-
ing the past several weeks of practice
prior to the playoffs.
We would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank the many sponsors and
parents who supported this All-Star
team and made it possible for them to
have the experience of playing and
competing at the District and State
Playoffs.
Respectfully,

South Sumter
insulted
Once again southern Sumter
County has been insulted by County
Commissioner Michael Francis.
Based on Mr. Francis' latest
remarks in last Wednesday's The
Daily Commercial in which he stated
that he's heard that "everyone's
broke down there," meaning in south
Sumter I have to wonder if he's ever
ventured down here! Does he realize
how offensive his remarks are to those
of us who live in south Sumter County
or is he perhaps concerned that we
are too stupid to understand land val-
ues?
Frankly, I and a lot of other folks
are weary of elected officials who
adopt a condescending tone when
referring to south Sumter County and
its residents. Believe it or not, Mr.
Francis, we're not all broke nor are we
ignorant of current property values
and when other commissioners sug-
gest that the 1.3 million price for a
piece of property is fairly reasonable,
their suggestions should be taken seri-
ously especially when they live in the
area and you don't!
Of course, the county wouldn't be in
this situation of having to purchase
land for a sports complex if Mr.
Francis and his fellow Villager hadn't
spurned Congresswoman Brown-
Waite's generous grant. Researching
the mating cycle of moths is a "pork
project" but a badly needed sports
complex and storm shelter would
have been a valuable asset for south
Sumter County. Now he has the gall to
suggest that paying a fair price for
land is "an egregious waste of money."
Let's all remember Mr. Francis' com-
ments and his attitude when he's up
for re-election. With "friends" like
him, Sumter County hardly needs
enemies!

Campaign
Contributions
I owe my soul to the company store.
The lyrics from the Tennessee
Ernie Ford song Sixteen Tons were
never more appropriate. To see this
for yourself all you have to do is check
the contributions on the quarterly
reports of the candidates running for
office in Sumter County. They are
public records available at the office
of the Supervisor of Elections or on
line.
This is supposed to be a govern-
ment of the people, by the people and
for the people, not a government of
the purchased, by the purchaser for
the developers.
People, you must become involved
in rescuing the democratic principals
this country was based upon before it
is too late!
With the passage of "One Sumter,"
the money and undue influence the
major developers exert, the average
resident has all but lost the probabili-
ty of ever holding public office; in
Sumter County.
To prove that point, just check the
records of the candidates backed by
the developers. Most of the contribu-
tions reported are from contractors
and businesses connected to the
developers in one way or another.
Also check the number of contribu-
tions from out of state, or at the very
least, out of county. With these types of
contributions, you must ask WHY?
Why is all this money being poured
into small town, local elections? What
do these contributors expect to gain?
To see what they have to gain, you
just have to look around. All the
annexing of land by Wildwood and
Center Hill, the unchecked expansion
of the Villages and other developers,
the unbridled expansion of the min-
ing industry there will soon be no
Sumter "County" left. The urban
sprawl is slowly but surely devouring
all of rural Sumter County. And with
the demise of the rural life style, just
how long will the local residents be
able to afford to live in Sumter
County?
With urbanization comes city taxes,
water and sewer bills that never quit
going higher and higher. Then comes
the mandatory garbage removal, the
list goes on and on. And who will ben-
efit from this? Not Joe Public.
Don't let big money buy your vote.
Don't let the pressure of veiled threats
sway your vote. Our fathers fought and
died so we would all have the right to
vote our conscience and the right to
have our vote count Don't let them
have died in vain. Stand up, get out
and vote and make sure your vote
counts!

People deserve
better than Francis
At the Sumter County Commission
meeting on Tuesday, July 18, a great
step was taken towards finally pro-
viding a new recreational facility for
the Webster and Center Hill area.
Most of the county commissioners
have supported the county Parks
and Recreation Manager, Lita Hart,
in her efforts to secure this site.
Many of the commissioners, espe-
cially Randy Mask, Joey Chandler
and Jim Roberts, have also worked
long hours in this effort. Dick
Hoffman also gave his support.
Commissioner Michael Francis,
however, not only was against the
project, but used this forum to insult
the people in the South Sumter area


and especially Webster. His conduct
at the meeting goes beyond normal
debate and opposition though. His
attitude towards the people of
Sumter County was hateful and his
preparation for the meeting was
derelict for the following reasons:
1. The commissioners knew for
some time that they would be voting
on an issue involving real estate.
Commissioner Francis either did
not bother to learn the basics of real
estate values in Sumter County or he
was making some kind of a joke by
berating the land in the Webster
area. Does he really think he can
buy enough land for a sports com-
plex anywhere in this state for
$50,000?
2. With his insulting statements
about Webster area farmers and res-
idents, he made a mockery of the
One Sumter Initiative that he sup-
posedly supports. It is obvious from
statements like "There are farm-
lands that lay empty because they
can no longer farm and I've been
told everyone's broke down there,'!
that Mr. Francis knows nothing
about the Webster area. If he really
supports the One Sumter Initiative
he should have been familiar with
all of Sumter County by now.
. 3. His open hostility towards the
youth of Sumter County and lack of
any constructive ideas to help them
shows that he is unconcerned about
the future of this county.
Not only does the Webster area
deserve better than this but the peo-
ple in his core district in the Villages
deserve better. Do the people of the
Villages want a commissioner that
actively tries to promote disharmo-
ny in the county? Is that what they
came here for? Does this type of con-
troversy help business in the coun-
ty?
No, the people around Webster
are not all broke. We are hardwork-
ing people from a small town just
like the towns that most of the peo-
ple who have moved to the Villages
came from. We all deserve, better
and we demand better.

Critical of
campaign ad
In reference to a campaign ad for
Garry Breeden who is running for
county commissioner, my signature
has appeared on a Certificate of
Gratitude from the Humane
Society.
The certificate is dated 5/13/97,
when I first joined the Humane
Society. I was given inaccurate
information when I signed the cer-
tificate presented to Garry
Breeden. I personally endorse
Commissioner Jim Roberts.
Commissioner Roberts has in the
past, and continues to support
humane animal treatment at the
county's Animal Control facility.
If not for Commissioner Roberts,
there would be no cat facility. If not
for Commissioner Roberts, the
dogs would be left in freezing tem-
peratures without even a blanket. It
was Commissioner Roberts who
stood up for improved conditions at
the facility.
As you may be aware, no non-
profit organization can officially
endorse any political candidate
without risking their non-profit sta-
tus. This letter reflects my personal
statements; my personal endorse-
ment of Commissioner Roberts.

My husband is a smart
guy. He can take a
machine apart and put
it back together and have it work
better than before
and not have any
parts left over.
He's a smart guy,
but he can't seem to
grasp the concept of
prepositions. For
example, throwing ,
his bottle caps in the
trashcan instead of
leaving them on the
kitchen counter. Or
keeping his cold,
bony feet from my NA
warm ones when he KEN
gets into bed.
And he can't seem
to walk next to me when we're at
The Home Depot or Wal-Mart
and instead lopes three feet in
front of me and then wanders off
with the shopping cart leaving
me to wander around, calling
his name.
My daughter, the one who
loves prepositions, said I should
teach him to sing the preposi-
tion song about "under the
house, through the house,
around the house, into the
house."
I didn't even know there was a
song about prepositions. Even
so, I don't think singing about
one's relative position to a
house will help my preposition-
ally challenged husband to
remove his wadded up paper
towels from the table or put his
dirty laundry inside the laundry
hamper instead of on the top.

I confess, even

Currently, the message on the
board reads: By grace, through

propositions right, the dogmas
and doctrines and fine points of
theology, you need to under-
stand the prepositions.
Simply put, we are brought
near to God by grace his
grace, not ours, because we have
none of our own. That's preposi-
tion No. 2. (Preposition No. 1 is
that we are born in sin, in being
the preposition, and our sin
keeps us away from God.) Got
that?
Next comes preposition No. 3,
through faith. In sin, by grace,
through faith.
That brings a person to prepo-
sition No. 4, which is my favorite
in Christ
Prepositions connect nouns to
some other word in a sentence,
and when it comes to faith,
prepositions connect me to
Jesus. By grace and through
faith, I am brought into Christ
(you are, too).
Isn't that cool? It gets even
better. In Christ: I am safe; I am
loved. In Christ, I have hope and
strength. In Christ, I have a fam-

ily of fellow believers, a purpose
to life, peace within my soul, a
destination, a direction, a home.
In Christ, there's comfort and
security and forgiveness of sin
past, present and future.
In Christ, there's shelter from
storms and power to do the
impossible, 'power to deny
myself, power to obey.
My friends and family may
reject me, but in Christ I will
never be abandoned, never be
forsaken, always be accepted,
never be turned away.
In Christ, I can face an uncer-
tain future. In Christ, I can for-
give the worst offense. In Christ,
I can bear a brother's burden,
share a sister's pain. In Christ, I
can give thanks in all situations
and overlook even the most
annoying habits of those around
me.
In Christ, I can pick up my
husband's bottle caps. and put
them in the trash myself, will-
ingly, gladly, without grumbling
or complaining.
In Christ, I am set free.
All that and more, bound up in

The Southwest Florida
Water Management District is
celebrating 10 years of com-
munity education grants. The
program motivates adults to
get involved in education
projects that promote water
resources protection.
The District is once again
soliciting applications for
grants up to $5,000 to be used
for projects that provide
adults with an opportunity to
learn about water-related
issues pertaining to conserva-
tion, protection and preserva-
tion. Government agencies,
private individuals, educa-
tional facilities, business and
industry, neighborhoods,
homeowner and service
organizations, research and
other profit and nonprofit
organizations concerned
about water-related issues in
their communities are
encouraged to apply for a


community education grant to
help fund their projects.
From 1997 through 2006, the
District funded hundreds of
projects, totaling more than $1
million. The grants are fund-
ed by the District's Basin
boards. These projects
brought communities and
neighborhoods together to
share the responsibility of
their local water resources
through education.
"Over the past nine years,
the District has funded
Florida-Friendly landscape
demonstration gardens, edu-
cational signage, water quali-
ty testing, water-wise work-
shops, watershed festivals,
storm drain marking pro-
grams and more," said
Virginia Stemberger, commu-
nications coordinator. "These
projects teach participants
how to take better care of.
their local water resources


and encourage volunteer
efforts in their communities.
Everyone benefits the envi-
ronment and the residents."
Potential grant projects
should involve and educate
on any or all of the following
issues: alternative water
resources, water quality,
water conservation, flood pro-
tection, natural systems and
watersheds. The application
screening committee is look-
ing for innovative projects
that provide learning experi-
ences that will lead to protec-
tion of water resources
through cost-effective ways.
To apply online, visit the
District's Web site at
WaterMatters.org,/communi-
tygrants. Grant applications
are due Sept. 15. To discuss
project ideas, call Virginia
Stemberger, community edu-
cation grant coordinator, at 1-
800-423-1476, Ext. 4756.

If one of your worries is whether you're investing at the right
time, it shouldn't be. By investing a set amount of money regularly,
you establish a simple routine that can help make your financial
goals a reality.

In addition, investing regularly can:
i Make it possible to use market fluctuations to your advantage
i Add potential growth and diversification to your portfolio
i Keep your long-term financial goals in focus

To learn how investing on a regular basis can help you reach
your financial goals, call or visit your local investment
representative today.
Investing a set amount of money on a regular basis does not ensure a profit and does not protect
against loss in declining markets. Such a plan involves continual investment in securities regardless
of fluctuating price levels of such securities. You should consider your financial ability to continue the
purchases through periods of low price levels.

Langley provider attends Commercial Motor Vehicle Workshop


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-assessment of
the D.O.T. medical exam.
Patricia Cheston, PA-C does a
large number of D.O.T 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 med-
ical examiners performing
D.O.T. 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 profes-
sionals who are knowledgeable
of the physical and mental
demands associated with oper-
ating a Commercial Motor
Vehicle" she added. 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.

SECO site shares outage information


Sumter Electric
Cooperative (SECO) 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
people can go directly to
www.secostormcenter.com.
SECO CEO Jim Duncan
said, "We place great
emphasis on good commu-
nication with our members
and others who have an
interest in our cooperative.
The creation of SECO's on-
line storm center is another
indication of how important
we believe it is to keep peo-
ple apprised of our activi-
ties. 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 cus-
tomers can report a power
outage at their address and
check the outage repair sta-
tus by utilizing 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
particularly helpful to
those looking for informa-
tion 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 dis-
covered during the hurri-
canes of 2004 and 2005 that
many of .our members
found a way to utilize the
internet to communicate
with us even though they
had experienced an outage.
"Some used computers at
work for that purpose.
Some members used per-
sonal computers with bat-
tery back-ups or laptops,
with internal batteries.
'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 opera-
tions centers, the media
and any other interested
parties."
SECO serves well over
152,000 members in parts of
Lake, Marion, Sumter,
Citrus, Pasco, Levy and
Hernando counties.
The Co-op maintains
nearly 10,000 miles of ener-
gized. power lines and 43
substations in a service ter-
ritory the size of the state of
Delaware.

lrnent. "While they're not saying
01 1ything like last year, with 27
:6dr 28 storms, we are in a
stronger hurricane cycle."
Hill said a slow start doesn't
'ftiean a slow hurricane season.
'"The trend that's happening is
"these back-to-back hurricanes


where all of a sudden you have
three or four in a short period of
time."
With increasing water tem-
peratures in the Gulf of Mexico
and the Atlantic Ocean, "they're
predicting another bad hurri-
cane season," he said.
Hill said while hurricanes
may be inevitable, the key for
residents to weather out the
storms is preparation.
"The big thing is to get pre-
pared now," Hill said.
Residents are advised to fol-
low the guidelines for dealing
with hurricanes and to know
where their nearest shelter is in
the event that they need to evac-
uate.


"If you think you need to go to
a shelter, don't wait for the
winds to start blowing in on
you," he said.
While Sumter has hurricane
shelters throughout the county,
no shelters will be accepting
pets, Hill said. "We're looking
into that for the future, but for
right now we don't have any pet


shelters."
Hill also advises moving to a
shelter early if you believe you
are in danger.
While many people believe
they can receive emergency
assistance during hurricanes,
once the winds hit 45 mph,
they're basically on their own.
"It's a safety factor," Hill said.


"When wind speed hits 45 mph,
it's too dangerous for emer-
gency workers to be out."
For the most part, Hill said he
believes Sumter residents are
well aware of the precautions to
take and the dangers that can
arise; that education has come
from the past two hurricane sea-
sons.
"Some people used to say, 'We
live so far inland, nothing will
happen here," but the 2004 hur-
ricane season proved that con-
cept wrong.
"While Sumter isn't a coastal
county and doesn't have the
storm surge problem some
other counties have, as far as
anything else, we're all in the


same boat."
Preparation is the key to deal-
ing with the hurricane season.
"It's most important to listen
to officials (involved with hurri-
cane updates), when we say
evacuate...be prepared."
Hill advises people not to wait
to stock up on supplies.
"People have a tendency to
wait until the last minute. When
that happens, there's a panic at
the stores and sometimes there
isn't anything left."
Persons who need assistance
during a hurricane can contact
either Sumter County
Emergency Management at 569-
6000 or the Sumter County
Sheriff's Office at 793-0222.


JTaking precautions to make your home disaster-ready


.'e The Federal Emergency
Management, Agency (FEMA)
Pand Florida's State Emergency
;Response Team (SERT) urge
Residents to take steps to make
r'their homes safer during hurri-
'cane season. Getting a home
-disaster-ready is a key compo-
':lent for a faster recovery from
-'a hurricane or other disaster.
Hurricanes produce two pri-
,mtary damaging forces: high
Winds and flooding. Some
measures to reduce the damage
resulting from water and high
Winds are fairly simple and
inexpensive; others will
require a professional contrac-
S9tor licensed to work in a state,
county or city.
a,- It is important to ensure that
,,any work meets current state
?and local building codes.
-Exceeding the requirements of
'.the building code with a "code-
:plus" approach to rebuilding
increases the disaster resist-
:ance of a house and decreases
sthe chance of major structural
damage from wind or water. For
-nore detailed information,
homeownerss should talk to a
,professional homebuilder,
aVrchitect, contractor or build-
iing-supply retailer.
i"s The Federal Alliance for Safe
Homes F-IASH,Inc is a non-
'profit organization dedicated to
-promoting disaster safety, prop-


erty protection and economic
well-being by strengthening
homes and safeguarding fami-
lies from natural and manmade
disasters. Its Web site,
www.flash.org, features anima-
tions that guide a homeowner
or builder step-by-step through
the latest tested and approved
home mitigation techniques,
including im-provements to the
roof, walls and windows;
FLASH Cards, that provide dis-
aster-safety information cover-
ing 20 topics (including hurri-
canes and flooding safety) and
ordering information for the
FLASH One-Stop Resource
Guide, which provides concise
information on strengthening a
home.
FEMA's How To mitigation
series features illustrated
guides about mitigation topics.
The series can be viewed,
downloaded and printed by log-
ging onto
www.fema.gov/plan/prevent/ho
wto/index or copies ordered by
calling 1-800-480-2520.
Residents living in storm-
damaged homes may need to
evacuate should a hurricane
threaten the area; riding out a
hurricane in a weakened struc-
ture is dangerous.
Strengthening measures :still
.are no guarantee that a home
will not be damaged or even


destroyed by a hurricane.
Residents should evacuate
immediately if told to do so by
local authorities.
The following are some gen-
eral suggestions for rebuilding
safer and stronger:
Opening Protection
One of the most effective
ways to reduce damage to a
home is to install protection on
the home's openings (windows,
skylights and doors), such as
impact-resistant windows and
doors and/or storm shutters.
Homeowners should purchase
or make shutters for all
.exposed windows, glass sur-
faces, French doors, sliding
glass doors and skylights.
Typical types of'manufactured
storm shutters include wood,
aluminum and steel. Shutters
should be installed following
the manufacturer's guidelines.
Roof Bracing
Roof failures, especially in
unbraced gable roofs, are a
common cause of major dam-
age to houses and their con-
tents in high winds.
Homeowners should ensure
the roof framing is braced.
Check with the local building
department for code require-
ments and with a professional
about installation.
Doors
Exterior doors should be


wind and impact resistant or
protected with an impact-
resistant covering. Many hous-
es are equipped with double-
entry doors. Because double-
entry doors span a wider open-
ing than a single door, they usu-
ally are not as strong as a single
door and more susceptible to
wind damage. Homeowners
should add a heavy-duty dead-
bolt or replace the existing
deadbolt with a stronger one,
add slide bolts at the top and
bottom of the inactive door, and
replace the existing hinge
attachment screws, in both the
doors and the door frame, with
longer screws that extend fur-
ther into the door's frame.
Garage Doors
Garage doors can pose prob-
lems during hurricanes
because they are so large that
they can wobble in high winds.
Winds can pull garage doors out
of their tracks or make them
collapse. If garage doors fail,
high winds can enter a home
and blow out doors, windows,
walls even the roof. A garage
door can be reinforced by
strengthening the back of the
door and the glider wheel
tracks. Hardware and home
supply stores, as well as compa-
.nies tholI;I iecili:e % in o, l rhed
door sales and installation, can
advise homeowners about


stronger doors and track sys-
tems.
Protecting Property From
Flooding
Flooding is the most common
and costliest natural disaster
and often accompanies hurri-
canes. Residents can inquire
about the projected flood eleva-
tion for their neighborhood by
contacting their local building
departments, flood plain man-
agement offices or emergency
management offices.
Raising Electrical System
Components
Electrical system compo-
nents, including service panels,
meters, switches and outlets,
are easily damaged by floodwa-
ter. If they are under water for
even short periods, they may
.require replacement. The
potential for fires caused by
short circuits in flooded sys-
tems creates another serious
problem. Raising electrical sys-
tem components helps prevent
such problems and ensure a
quicker return home. All com-
ponents of the electrical sys-
tem, including the wiring,
should be raised at least 12
inches above the community's
base flood elevation require-
ment. In an existing house, this
work will require the removal
of some interior wall sheathing
(drywall, for example).


Electrical system modifications
must be done by a licensed con-
tractor, who will ensure that the
work is done correctly and
according to all applicable
codes.
Elevating Appliances
Appliances, such as washers
and dryers,' should be located at
least 12 inches above the com-
munity's base flood elevation
requirement. Washers and dry-
ers sometimes can be elevated
on masonry or pressure-treated
lumber; such appliances also
can be moved to a higher floor.
Raising HVAC
Heating, ventilating and cool-
ing (HVAC) equipment, such as
a furnace or hot water heater,
can be damaged extensively if
inundated by floodwaters. The
amount of damage depends on
the depth of the flooding and
the amount of time the equip-
ment remains' under water.
Exterior HVAC equipment
should be elevated at least 12
inches above the community's
base flood elevation require-
ment. A good way to protect
interior HVAC equipment is to
move it from the basement or
lower level of the house to an
upper floor or even the attic.
Relocation may involve plumb-
ing and electrical changes and
requires the skills of a licensed
professional contractor.

MHA a complete invento-
3ox ry of ALL your pos-
sessions.
Hurricane Warning- when
a storm is expected to strike
within 24 hours
Listen only to official
announcements on the radio,
television, and NOAA
Weather Radio .or the Civil
Defense and Red Cross. Do
not pay attention to rumors.
Turn refrigerator and
freezer to their coldest set-
ting (store plastic bottles of
water and newspapers in the
vacant areas of your freezer
cover your freezer with blan-
kets). Open only when neces-
sary.
Sterilize containers, and
.fill containers, bathtub and
washing machine with water.
You should have one quart of
water per person, per day, for
drinking.
Double-check your Por-
table Disaster Kit; it can be
used in a shelter

the water. You can put your
aluminum furniture in the
pool.
Stay at home, if it is sturdy
and on high ground and you
feel secure, unless advised to
evacuate by government offi-
cials.
Double check your area for
loose objects before the
storm strikes.
If you do not have a car,
arrange ahead of time for
transportation should you
have to evacuate. This is
especially important for the
elderly and handicapped.
Do not use the telephone
unnecessarily.
Bring your pets inside and
protect livestock.
During the Hurriceane
Remain indoors during the
hurricane.
(If calm center passes
directly overhead, there will
.be a lull in the wind lasting
from a few minutes to an
hour or more.)
Do not go outside unless
emergency repairs are
absolutely necessary.
Remember, at the other
side of the eye the winds ride
very rapidly to hurricane
force winds, and come from
the other direction.
Prepare for storm surge
and flooding.
(Storm surges, flooding and
tornadoes are the worst
killers associated with
Hurricanes.)
The electricity, water, gas
and telephone service may
be interrupted stay calm
and listen to your radio for
the all clear.
DO NOT leave your house
and do not sightsee.
After the "All Clear" is Given
Leave your shelter only


after officially being
released.
Stay away from the disaster
area unless you live or work
there.
Don't sightsee.
DRIVE CAREFULLY.
Advise interested friends
and relatives that you are
safe. It may be impossible for
them to contact you.
If you arrived at a public
shelter on a public bus,
return transportation will be
provided.
If your home was damaged,
enter with extreme care.
Avoid downed wires,
escaping gas, downed trees,
structurally damaged build-
ings, etc.
Check all utility systems to
be sure they are safe before
turning them back on.
Check to insure that your
water is safe.
Check for the possibility of
food spoilage. Bury spoiled
items. High water can drive
snakes, animals and insects
to high ground. Expect them
and be prepared to protect
yourself.
If You are OfficiallyAdvised
to Evacuate
Local authorities will offi-
cially advise by television or
radio when specific areas
should be evacuated and
which American Red Cross
Shelters 'will be opened and
staffed.
Act immediately in day-
light, if possible. Do not get
marooned.
Store perishables take
reasonable amounts of non-
perishable foodstuffs.
Turn off main switch for
utilities (consider that. you
may want some utilities left
on as long as possible for
refrigerators, etc.).
Lock your home securely.


Travel with care, leave
early, and follow recom-
mended routes. Stay away
from low-lying areas. Avoid
obstructions, wires and trees.
Keep listening to the radio.
Carry your transistor radio,
flashlight, and valuables with
you. Pack medicines, baby
foods, diapers and personal
hygiene requirements and
bring them with you.
Bring bedding you feel is
necessary. None will be
immediately available.

some time you may wish to
bring a change of clothing.
Do not attempt to bring
intoxication beverages, pets,
or firearms. You will not be
admitted if you do.
Recognize that an
American Red Cross Shelter
will not have all the comforts
of home.
If you suffer from more
then minor medical prob-
lems or are pregnant, per-
haps you should check in
with the hospital.
If you do not have your own
transportation, plan to travel
with friends or neighbors.

Exercising you and your dog


Commissioner Jim Rob-
erts can be
seen around
town walking his 4- """"
year-old chocolate
Labrador, Bosco.
The commission-
er and Bosco walk
three miles every
morning and then
again in the <-v
evening.
All dogs need to
exercise both their
minds and bodies. L
And a daily walk G
in the neighbor- -
hood is both enjoy-
able and informa-
tive to your dog.
Just as we read a newspa-
per to know what is happen-
ing in our community, dogs
sniff out the news of the day
on their daily walks.
From scents animals leave
on sidewalks, roads, bushes
and trees, your dog learns a
lot about the animals that
have been there before him.
Rabbits may have hopped
by last night, a stray cat could
have caught dinner on the
street hours ago, a snake may
have slithered by, etc.
Your dog can pick up all of
these scents and more, work-
ing his mind about the differ-
ent events that have occurred
since his last walk.
Suddenly the nose goes up
and sniffs the air.
Your neighborhood takes
on a whole new life of its own
through your furry friend's
nose, ears, and eyes.
Pity the poor dogs that
never leave their yard, or
worse, are tied to the same
spot day after day after day.
The saying, '"A mind is a ter-
rible thing to waste" is true
for canines, too.
A dog that has daily exer-
cise is a happy and well-
behaved dog.
Walking your dog has other
advantages, too.


NDP
AVE


You and your pooch can
work on simple
obedience exercis-
es while walking,
which will build
your dog's confi-
dence and the
bond between you.
And of course,
I we humans need
our daily exercise
'j also, and walking is
great for our
health, too.
You must be con-
A sistent. Take your
ES dog for a walk
every day, prefer-
ably twice a day.


Walk early in the morning
and in the evening when the
heat is not so bad.
If your dog pulls, try a Halti
head collar. The head collar
works like a horse halter, and
humanely prevents a dog
from pulling.
Be sure your dog is wearing
identification on his collar or
harness.
If your dog should acciden-
tally get away from you and
become lost, his identification
will get him back home to you.
Most important, have fun
and relax, and enjoy a
leisurely stroll with your best
buddy.


County Commissioner Jim Roberts and his dog Bosco out for
a daily stroll.


Things

Lawn care: If you are using a
natural organic fertilizer such
as Milorganite, apply 15
pounds per 1000 square feet in
the latter half of the month.
Natural organic fertilizers
require that soil fungi and bac-
teria break down the fertilizer
materials in order to release
the nitrates in low to moderate
amounts over a longer period
of time.
We do not want to have a lot
of available nitrogen present at
any one time and certainly not
after early October.
Also watch for chinchbug
damage in St Augustine grass,
or mole cricket damage in
Bahiagrass lawns.
Centipede grass should be
fertilized for the last time in
August.
And remember, don't bag
those lawn clippings!
Returning clippings will give
nutrients to your lawn.
Crape Myrtle: Remember to
continue clipping spent blooms
to encourage more flowering.
New blooms on the same stem
take four to six weeks.
Citrus is ready for its third
and last feeding. This should
carry it through February.
Palms: The best time to
transplant palms is in the sum-
mer months. Potted palms can
be planted at any time. Best
cold-hardy varieties for Sumter
County include Sabal, Canary
Island Date, Chinese Fan,
Dwarf Palmetto, European Fan
and Lady Palm.
Yellowing of older leaves
may indicate a shortage of
magnesium. The use of a good
quality palm fertilizer, applied
three or four times during the
growing season (March
through September), is the best
way to ensure healthy palms in
your landscape.
Poinsettias: This is the last
month to prune or shape these
holiday plants. Do not prune
after September first, or you
may loose those colorful bracts
for the holiday season.
Vegetables: Prepare vacant

to do in August


areas for fall planting this
month. You may wish to have a
pH test done to see if lime or
sulphur is needed. Add organic
matter, manure, if available
and turn under cover crops.
Add two to four pounds of 8-8-8
fertilizer per 1,000 square feet
one or two weeks before plant-
ing.
Diazinon granules spread
before planting can control
mole crickets, wireworms, cut
worms and other insects. If
your seeds have not been treat-
ed with fungicide, dusting
seeds with captain or thiram
will help prevent disease.
Always follow pesticide label
directions.
The University of Florida
"Vegetable Gardening Guide"
contains much valuable infor-
mation. It is available at the
Extension Office.
Going on vacation: Planning
for vacation may involve more
than packing the suitcase and
the car and making room reser-
vations.
Determine how to save water


in your garden areas and land-
scape by purchasing timers for
hose end sprinklers well
before you leave so that you,
have time to test the effective-
ness of those systems. Set-
timers on irrigation or irriga-.
tion systems to make regular
infrequent applications.
Arrange to have a neighbor
keep an eye on the irrigation
system to insure that it is work-
ing while you are gone. A
Florida Friendly Landscaping
Series is presented every sec-
ond Thursday at the
Community Center in Oxford
(corner CR 106 and 107) from 1
to 3 p.m. The August 10 topic
will be: "On the Waterfront"
This is free to the public and
everyone interested is wel-
come to attend. It is advised to
pre register by calling
352.793.2728.

eliminated Belleview from tour-

to play the. remainder of the

players due to the unavoidable
absence of three of their players,
two of whom held key positions
in both offense and defense for

The 13-player Wildwood All

Brandon Anderson jacked a
two-run home run for
Bushnell. Reace Kinley also hit
a two-run homer, his second of
the tournament. Bushnell had
five hits but played errorless
ball.
"Bushnell never gave up,"
said coach Chris Sullivan. "We
battled the whole game.
Starling hit a three-run home
run in the first game. We fin-
ished fourth in the state out of


80 teams. "For a small commu-
nity of 3,000 people, we have

with San Antonio for third place,
and there would be a playoff
game to determine which team
won the third spot to advance to
State competition. Either way,
\Wildu ood as facing an uphill
battle t6-keep their State hopes
alive.
Spring Hill defeated
Wildwood on Thursday 1-11, but
Wildwood was able to hold their
heads up knowing that they had
one more chance to make it to
State by defeating San Antonio
the following day.
On Friday, Wildwood showed
up ready to play and were able to
win third place at District as well
as advance to the State
Tournament in a 8-3 victory over
San Antonio. In the team huddle
after Friday's game, Coach Steve
Gooden told the team, "You guys
played with your hearts tonight
You could have given up when
we lost the other players but you*
didn't You kept fighting and I'm
proud of every one of you."
Wild\wood's advancing to state
is ruly a team effort by the 10
remaining players. Kyle Stollar's
pitching was on consistently
throughout the entire tourna-
ment Garrett Hurst also came
through with his pitching and
had some great defensive plays
as well. Cody Holton hit his first-
ever home run. Matthew
McKinney made an awesome
divine catch in center field.


Andrew Terry w as terrific
behind the plate and up to bat as
well. De'aarVreus Gibson's speed
in the outfield helped him make
several outstanding catches.
Jalen Gooden turned on some
speed around.the bases and also
did a great job filling in at first.
Kody Whited played great in
right field and was hitting the
ball well. Cody Glenn and Levi
Terry played the outfield well
and were able to prevent numer-
ous runs from being scored.
The team made a couple of
double plays and very few
errors. They had several 2-out
rallies and never gave up, even
when they were behind.
Teamwork is what got them this
far, and teamwork is what they
plan to take to the State
Tournament with them.
The State Tournament began
July 22 in Lakeland. This holds
special meaning for two of the
players, Kody Whited and
Garrett Hurst. When their dads,
Larry Whited and Ken Hurst
(one of Wilddwood's coaches)
played as Majors in Wildwood's
Dixie Youth League 25 years ago,
they also advanced to the State
Tournament also held in
Lakeland. Coach Hurst said, "I
got goosebumps when I heard it
was going to be in Lakeland. I've
coached most of these guys since
T-ball and wanted to take them to
State. For it to be in Lakeland -
that's icing on the cake."


run. It was Kinley's first homer
ever. Bushnell had just four
hits.
"It was more of a defensive
struggle," said coach Chris
Sullivan. "South Lake is a great
ball club. We play them every
year. Every time we play them,
it is a one-run game.
Xavier Story made a nice
catch in center field. Laramie
Strickland made several good
plays at second base and dou-
bled.
Call Graham made several
good scoops at first. Brandon
Anderson, our catcher, threw a
kid out stealing at second."

Kenneth Maxwell also batted 2-

Xavier Story both scored two
runs. Bushnell had 10 hits.
"I am so proud of our kids"
said head coach John Kinley
"We have put together a good
run. I don't think it was our
overall best effort. They battled
and had a nice 9-3 win.
"There were a lot of good
efforts. Garrett Cave and
Kenneth Maxwell pitched the

two innings.

GIANT

continued from Page 4
Billy loved sports big time
and FSU was his burning
passion. I reckon mainly
because he was one of the
first men who attended FSU
right after World War II on
the GI Bill educational pro-
gram.
He loved the FSU football
team beyond words. He for
sure suffered through a lot
years taking a ribbing from
us Gator fans but the day
finally came when he got to
pay us all back big time with
a lot of unmerciful Gator gig-
ging.
He also loved the South
Sumter football team and he
and his close friend Fred
Dietz announced all of their
home games longer that I
have been in Sumter County
and that has been quite a
while.
He was a big supporter of
education and it was through
his leadership that the land
where the Lake Sumter


Community College in
Sumterville is located was
acquired at no cost to the tax-
payers.
He had a good friend who
he convinced to donate the
land where the campus is
located and for that we all
owe Billy a great debt of grat-
itude.
Billy was a real genuine
Florida Cracker politician
and if an aspiring politician
whether it was a senator, con-
gressman, or some one want-
ing to be Florida's governor
they stopped by for a visit
and in most cases a contribu-
tion from Billy.
He was on the first name
basis with many of Florida's
past governors and fished on
Lake Panasoffkee with sever-
al over the years. He person-
ally knew at least one presi-
dent and he himself once
served in the Florida
Legislature.
Billy's love for the outdoors
knew no bounds especially
the Withlacoochee River and
Lake Panasoffkee.
He and his long time close
friend and fishing buddy Jim
Veal and State Repesentive
Everett Kelly were extremely


instrumental in getting the
Lake Panasoffkee restora-
tion program brought about
and he also helped get sever-
al wildlife management
areas established for hunters
over the years.
While Billy had an office
most of his daily business
was conducted from his shirt
pocket.
This is where Billy's most
important and pending files
were kept along with notes,
camp grocery list, appoint-
ments, and usually a little
cash which he freely gave to
folks stopping by for a dona-
tion for some charity or com-
munity benefit.
He also helped those in
dire need whether it be
someone who needed to get
their lights turned back on,
help with their overdue rent,
or a much needed tank of gas
or a perhaps few groceries
for their kids.
Billy was a true friend to
me and countless other folks
who loved him very much
and we all will miss Billy
greatly.
The county and state will
miss him as he truly was a
giant among men.


POEM


Billy Merritt and his grandson Little Evan at a recent fish fry at lake Panasoffkee.


Strangely enough, I don't
know why
They call him BILLY, when
that's not his real name
But that doesn't matter, we
love him the same

How well do I know BILLY,
very good I would say
You get to know a man
pretty well, especially
around a campfire...
And by sharing a tent

This man called
BILLY...Sorta like a Boy
Scout, trustworthy and
loyal
His other virtues, maybe
some doubt

His love for his Country,
State and County, he serves
as a peer
But don't mess with his
"Noles," less you feel his
spear

The South Sumter Raiders
he loves, with great pride
For thirty odd years, he
has announced for their
side

His office...his buddies all
like to hang out
The phone always rings
don't have any doubt
The bull never ceases, and
BILLY is never heard to
shout


"BILLY"


The Shellerackers start bit-
ing...Each Spring's first full
moon
You may not see BILLY til
way after noon

To BILLY...the politicians
all come for advice
Governors and
Senators... and yes even me
They all need his council,
and lots of his dough

Now BILLY'S cooking is
known, both far and wide
Legendary yes, most of it
I've tried

Concerning his menu, He
serves with great pride
Cottage cheese we'll pass,
We would rather have Deer
Stew

When it comes to nature,
BILLY is at his best
Don't mess with his river,
and especially our lake

Cause BILLY will front
you...His scolding will
scorch you
And that my friend, could
be hard to take

Now BILLY'S love for
hunting, has brought him
some fame
He's killed some deer and
an elk or two
But gator gigging is his

More on South
Sumter insult
It is with great concern and
disdain that I take strong
exception with one of Sumter
Counties elected County
Commissioners who recently
took a personal and hard slap
during an open commission
meeting at all of the good folks
who happen to reside in the
southern portion of Sumter
County.
Apparently the commission-
er considers all of us citizens
who live in the south end of
Sumter County to be poor,
broke and destitute. If the
commissioners really meant
what he said then he really
needs to evaluate his elected
position as a county commis-
sioner who is supposed to rep-
resent all of the folks in
Sumter County whether they
be rich or poor.
He as well as every other
elected official takes a solemn
and binding oath to represent
all of their constituents in an

honest and fair manner.
If the commissioner was
sincere with his disparaging
remarks about the south end
citizens of Sumter County
then he owes it to all of the cit-
izens he has sworn to repre-
sent to tender a letter of resig-
nation to the Governor as soon
as possible so that all of the
Sumter County citizens can
have a compassionate, fair
and understanding commis-
sioner who will represent all
of Sumter County weather
they happen to be wealthy or
poor or from the north end of
the County or the south end.
If the commissioner
remarks were not his real
feeling then an open apology
is most certainly in order from
him regarding to what his true


or hidden feelings regarding
the citizens of the South end
of Sumter County really are.
As far as the piece of prop-
erty in question I have per-
sonally seen the property and
it is an excellent place to build
a lasting place for the kids of
Webster and surrounding
areas.
Sure by the monetary val-
ues of years ago the price
might be high but I believe
with today's prices of land and
the location adjacent to the
Webster School and being
located within or very close to
the-city of Webster it is and
excellent opportunity the
county should not pass up as it
is a bargain.
Thank You,
Retired Sheriff
Jamie Adams

Wildwood AAA Dixie Majors split two games at state


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

:The.Wildwood AAA Dixie
Majors All Stars (ages 11 and
12) lost their first game but
won their second at the Dixie
Major AAA State
Tournament at East
Lakeland Baseball Field.
Wildwood 7, Quincy 4
Sunday
Wildwood beat Quincy 7-4
Sunday night. Garrett Hurst
was the winning pitcher in
relief. Kyle Stollar held
Quincy scoreless through
four innings and had six


strikeouts.
Quincy scored four runs in
the fifth inning but Wildwood
scored four in the sixth to
come back and win.
Wildwood scored one in
the first, two in the fourth.
Wildwood scored four in the
sixth to win it.
In the sixth, Cody Holton
reached on a single. Stollar
also singled. Jake Phillips
doubled to score Holton.
Davarreus Gibson doubled to
score Stollar and Phillips.
Jalen Gooden singled to
score Gibson with the final
run.
Wildwood had eight hits


and one error. Quincy had
five hits and two errors.
Holton and Stollar both
had two hits.
The Wildwood victory gives
the Sumter County team at
least one more game in the
double elimination tourna-
ment "They played a heck of
a game," said coach Kim
Stollar. "Every game, all of
these players stepped up to
the challenge."
Stollar said he was grateful
for all of the donations from
North Sumter area business-
es. The businesses helped
the team get to state.
Wildwood was to play


Monday night Results were
not available at press time.
Bartow 13, Wildwood 10
Saturday
It was bombs away
Saturday for the Wildwood
Dixie AAA Majors (ages 11-
12) All Star baseball team.
Unfortunately, Bartow did
the real damage.
Bartow's Mitchell Starling
belted a three-run walk off
home run as Bartow downed
Wildwood 13-10 in the Dixie
AAA Majors State
Tournament at East
Lakeland Baseball Park
The opening game loss
made Wildwood 0-1 in the


double elimination tourna-
ment.
Bartow also had a fourth
inning three-run homer by
Andrew Whitaker, Jonathan
Camp jacked a solo 250-foot
homer and Colin Foley fol-
lowed with a 200-foot shot.
The three homers took place
in the Bartow five-run fourth
inning.
Wildwood's Garret Hurst
gave up the sixth inning
homer Drew Terry jacked a
three-run homer in the fifth
inning. Terry added a two-
run double in the sixth
inning as Wildwood knotted
the score at 10-10.


ON A DIG!


Shopping: It's almost



back to school time


here are many necessi-
ties to be considered
when getting children
ready for school.
Some are
clothes, school
supplies, trans-
portation, lunch-
es and methods
of money man-
agement. Avoid
credit-based pur-
chases. Credit
cards have the
basic message of -
SPEND, howev- -"
er with interest MART
rates and finance MADDC
charges you may
end up spending
more for the item. Not to men-
tion the amount of debt you
may charge and not even real-
ize.
The family needs to consid-
er each of these when budget-
ing school costs.
: One of the first and most
obvious areas for back-to-
school spending is clothes
and shoes. Shopping for the
hew back-to-school outfits is
still ac',popular practice iin
Florida.'
You may find sales on
school clothes and shoes
otTering as much as 30 per-
cent off on "in season" stock
: It is important for families
Sto make the most of the family
clothing allowance. There are
a number of ways to do this. "
First, find out what each
child needs. Then take a
clothing inventory to deter-


"H
30
mm


mine what clothes can be
recycled or passed on to
another child. Make a shop-
ping list for new pur-
Schases needed to fill
the wardrobe gap and
plan shopping trips to
take advantage of
sales.
School supplies are
another large expen-
diture in back-to-
school preparation. If
you can obtain a list of
.* supplies needed and
can plan to take
IA advantage of sales,
Dx you will be able to
-M save as much as 20 to
40 percent on school
supplies bought during the
sales. Anticipating the child's
needs for supplies throughout
the year and then buying
them can further save money,
if you have storage space and
can control waste.
Transportation is another
expenditure that should be
included in the back-to-school
budget. The way children get
to school affects the,.cost. If,
Parentss. drive children t'd
school tigure about 50 cents
for each mile traveled. Car-
pooling can reduce this cost.
A bicycle may be an alterna-
tive for school transportation
if the distance is not too far
and the traffic is not too haz-
ardous. Walking or taking the
bus may be other less expen-
sive alternatives for school
transportation.
Lunches are a big expense


to consider. Estimate the
amount children will be
spending for lunches during
the entire school year,
whether they take their lunch
or buy it at school already pre-
pared. If the child takes lunch
to school, you can carefully
plan the menu using low-cost,
but nutritious foods.
Each school-age-child will
need some money to handle
during the school year. The
child will learn about han-
dling money by the method of
money management that the
family uses.
Most experts on family
finance suggest that children,
first grade and up, be given an
allowance to help them learn
techniques of money manage-
ment. Parents should talk
with children so that together
they realistically look at costs
of items needed.
The parent and child
together can decide what an
allowance is to cover. Plan
allowances according to the
child's needs and some
money left over so the child
can.make his or her own deci-
sions and develop his or her
own method of money man-
agement.

South Sumter High School students volunteered to assist Dr.
Terrance Weik in his ongoing research in Sumter County.
"Abraham's Town" is now only a cow pasture, yet 150 years
ago, more than 100 Seminole Maroons lived in Center Hill.


The lead changed hands
six times during the contest.
Both teams had 9 hits.
Wildwood and Bartow both
committed four errors.
Terry was 3-for-4 with five
RBIS and a run. Both Jalen
Gooden scored three runs
and Cody Whited and Jake
Phillips both scored a pair of
runs.
"That was tough," said
Wildwood coach Kim Stollar.
"They played good. They
(Bartow) just hit better than
we did. Four home runs,
that's hard to handle in Dixie
Youth baseball. We are proud
of our kids."


Permits


are still

available

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) still has

Time in surgery is reduced

Of this same study group, the
