Wildwood:


Two home invasions


BOB REICHMAN
Editor


Wildwood police continue
to search for suspects in two
recent home invasions where
the occupants were held at
gunpoint and one man was
stabbed.
Police have not determined
if the two incidents are relat-
ed.
The first home invasion
happened last Thursday, July


27, at an apartment in the
Wildwood Commons, accord-
ing to Wildwood police Capt.
Eddie Reeser.
Two black men wearing ski
masks kicked in the apart-
ment door and held two
women, ages 20 and 22, and
two children, ages 2 and 1, at
gunpoint before locking them
in the bathroom and securing
the door with power cords,
Reeser said. The men then
ransacked the apartment,
apparently looking for money.


The boyfriend of one of the
women, Kevin Harris, 23, of
Leesburg, was abducted by
the men and placed in the
trunk of his girlfriend's car,
Reeser said. The men then
drove away with Harris inside
the trunk


Harris was later removed
from the trunk, about a block
away from the apartment on
Jackson Street, and stabbed
two times in the side by one of
the assailants, according to
Reeser.
Harris went to a home in the


neighborhood where he began
banging on the front door. The
homeowner called for emer-
gency help after seeing that
Harris had been stabbed.
Harris was flown to Orlando
Regional Medical Center and
underwent surgery for his
injuries. He was reported in
stable condition late last
week
In the meantime, the
women were able to get out of
the bathroom by cutting
through the power cords with


a pair of scissors, Reeser said.
None of the occupants were
injured.
The suspects are described
as two black men, one about 6
feet tall, weighing 170 pounds.
The other suspect is about 5
feet 8, weighing about 190
pounds, Reeser said.
Police investigators are
questioning witnesses and vic-
tims.

Cracker Ball beats expectations


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

It appears that last Friday's
Cracker Ball was a smashing
success not only for the
crowd who enjoyed a filet and
chicken dinner, but for coordi-
nators as they tabulated
funds, according to Thomas E.
Langley Medical Center's
director of operations Andrea
Benda.
Hoping to raise $40,000 for
the center through the event,
the total was closer to $50,000


by the time the night was over,
Benda said.
The center is building a new
facility, slated to open later
this year. While the majority
of the funding ($4.4 million)
comes from the Federal
Department of Agriculture
rural health department and
another $3 million is bor-
rowed for construction costs,
there are still equipment
needs' that aren't covered.
Fun at the Cracker Ball
began at 6:30 p.m. as the
crowd prepared for dinner
and took part in a silent auc-


tion at the Wildwood
Community Center.
Emcee Patrick Grady led
the evening, as the event
transformed from silent auc-
tion and cocktail hour to din-
ner and guest speaker.
The items on display in the
silent auction ranged from
theme park tickets to scenic
photographs of sunsets and
horses. There was luggage, a
collector's doll and numerous
other items up for bid.
Dinner included beef and

With Howell taking over in
mid July as interim county
administrator, her assistant
county administrator position
was then filled by Jim Sparks,
county director of community
services.
But last week, Sparks, 57,
announced that he is retiring
at the end of August.
As they did when they
replaced Dew, commissioners
agreed to hire the Mercer
Group consulting firm again
to begin the process of con-
ducting a nationwide search
for qualified candidates for
the interim county adminis-
trator slot.
Commissioners last week
agreed to pay the company
$15,000 to compile a list of
appropriate applicants.
In the meantime, Sparks,
57, has agreed to extend his
stay with the county until the
middle o0September.

county for the past 13 years.
He was initially lgTed as the

Police have not determined if the two
incidents are related.


Administrative roles in
county government haven't
quite settled down yet after
County Administrator
Bradley Arnold left in July for
an 18-month stint in the U.S.
Navy Reserve.
Arnold was hired by the
County Commission in
January to fill the county
administrator position left
vacant with the retirement of
Bernard Dew. He was select-
ed for the job from a variety of
applicants following a nation-
wide search by the Mercer
Group consulting firm.
But a few months into his
new position, Arnold was
ordered to report for duty in
Afghanistan.
After discussing their
options, in the end, commis-
sioners finally agreed that
Assistant County Administ-
rator Sandra Howell was the
best selection to fill in for
Arnold.

Police have recovered Harris'

Reeser said.
The second home invasion
happened about 3:58 a.m.
Sunday, July 30, at a home on
Orange Street.
Four to five black subjects
with shirts pulled up over their
faces kicked in the front door,
Reeser said. The men were
armed with automatic assault
rifles.
They held two women, ages 19
and 23, and an 8-year-old boy at
gunpoint while they reportedly
stole cash, jewelry and electron-
ic equipment, he said.
No one was injured in the
incident.
Police have arrested one
Lake County juvenile in connec-
tion with the invasion but are
not releasing additional infor-
mation.
"We're checking both of these
to determine if they're related;
but outside of the fact that they
both were home invasions,
that's where the similarities
seem to end," Reeser said.
Persons with information
about the suspects or the home
invasions should contact the

when he and his family actually
drove cattle across Interstate 4.
Bronson even showed the
crowd where the name cracker
came from as he popped his cat-
tle whip.
An addition to the fundraising
was the live auction with several
hunting trips and a hand-paint-
ed chest and chair, as well as
other items.
Benda said the auctions drew
a total of more than $13,000.
They had hoped to raise
$40,000 from the evening, but
managed to raise almost all of
that just from sponsorships,
prior the event, Benda said.
Just before the ball they had
"We're excited for this
opportunity. We've got a great
group of people participating
in the association (and) we're
excited about what we're
going to be able to accom-
plish."
Bryant said the group
plans to be involved in chari-
table activities in the county
and hopes to "do some
fundraising activities (for)
the ball fields" in Webster.
'"Anything that we can do to
assist the community and
support our community,.
that's our goal," she said.

in Center Hill near the
Rinker mine, according to
Bryant.


"We all volunteered and
worked on it to get it done,"
Grant said.
"It's just wonderful. The kids
love it and I know I do."
The Youth Center, which start-
ed in 1997 as the Boys and Girls
Club, provides child care at a
reduced rate; parents pay 20
percent of the actual cost of the
service. There are around 250
children enrolled in the
Bushnell center.
The Youth Center depends on
donations and fundraising activ-
ities (the center has a thrift store
and mini mall in Bushnell) to
keep its doors open. The new,
Wildwood building was made
possible by a donation from a
Sumter resident's estate in the
amount of $130,000.
A few area businesses also
donated labor and construction
materials to the cause, making
the total cost of the building
around $150,000.


$37,000, she said.
The night's total included
$500 in donations for particular
items.
"That was just the kick-off,"
she said of a continuing effort
get items purchased for furnish-
ing the new facility.
Residents are still welcome to
donate for the, purchase of spe-
cific items and Benda has a list
of things needed.
"The majority of our sponsors
were newand didn't know about
the Cracker Ball," Benda said of
people who attended this year.
In several cases, people were
invited by guests who had pur-
chased extra tickets.
"This is the biggest event
we've ever held," she said,
adding that 330 people attended.
She said guests liked the tim-
ing, the theme and the d6cor.
The group also offered a num-
ber of contacts and referrals -
some positive networking expe-
riences.
Next on the list is the grand
opening, slated for Friday, Oct.
13.
Open to the public, the event
will .include food, entertain-
ment, guest speakers and tours
of the new building.
"We just had a great turnout.
We are thankful as a center to
see so many people support

time to come out and show their

Sumter ready for new school year


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Sumter County is kicking off
the school year as one of the
few "A' districts in the state -
only one of 24, according to
Sumter School Supt. Rick
Shirley.
'That means that when you
look at the average of all of our
FCAT scores, it's 410 or above."
That's an overall A ranking,
"and one of the very few rural
districts," he added.
'Administrators and kids aie
working hard they're doing
the right thing for the kids," he
said. "We've done a big literacy
push."
That includes reading coach-
es in the secondary schools, the
literacy program Writers in
Control and utilizing technolo-
gy labs.
They utilize the lab to help
find out why and what area a
student is having trouble in and
then focus on that area.
The Sumter district has one


computer for every 2.5 kids.
They are in the classroom
and in computer labs.
"We're actually in pretty good
shape," Shirley said of the tech-
nology access.
'A great portion of that was
paid with grant funds. We still
look for those grants hard and
heavy."
Staff changes include new
principal Donna Wells at Lake
Panasoffkee Elementary
School. She replaces Bill
Donahue who retired last year.
Gloria Croft has moved to
head up Sumter's Adult
Education and Dana Williams,
principal of North Sumter
Primary, will now also serve as
principal of North Sumter
Intermediate School.
That will give her an opportu-
nity to combine the staffs of
both schools into. a cohesive
unit and analyze strengths,
Shirley said.
The primary school is the
oldest campus in the district
and students will be moved to


Sumter County is kicking off the school year as
one of the few "A" districts in the state.


North Sumter Intermediate.
That change should take place
by the 2007-08 school year.
The primary school campus
can then be utilized and con-
structed as needed.
Sumter opens the year with
46 teachers brand new to the
district
Another major change this
year is for students at South
Sumter Middle School.
Classes will begin later, at 9
a.m., allowing students addi-
tional sleep in the morning, as
well as shorter bus rides.
Shirley said research indi-
cates that older adolescents
need more sleep in the morn-
ing. They tried it last year with
South Sumter High School stu-
dents and decided to expand it
to the middle school.


For parents concerned about
the change in school time, there
is a program available for the
students between 8 a.m. and 9
a.m. and they can take the earli-
er bus run, according to Shirley.
They also offer a breakfast
program.
"It worked out well for the
high school, so we're trying it
for the younger students, too,"
he said.
Pre-kindergarten has been
expanded, "which has been a
very effective program for us in
helping prepare kids."
And a second alternative
school has been added this
one on the north end of the
county.
The Sumter district just
bonded a little over $16 million
- borrowing money and locking


in rates to today's construction
costs.
In the process, the district
received an A rating for finan-
cial stability one of the few in
the state of any size.
The construction will include
additional classrooms and
other facilities.
While the growth rate is still
low in Sumter County, there are
big land purchases by develop-
ers, who Shirley believes are
just waiting for water and
sewer.
"Once that's in place, I do
believe that we are going to
pop."
The construction is also
designed to accommodate the
class size amendment passed in
recent years.
That restricts class size to:
one teacher per 18 students in
grades K-five; one teacher to 22
students in grades four through
eight; one teacher per 25 stu-
dents in grades nine and up.
With additional classrooms
and teachers, the core facilities


become too small.
One item up for construction
will be a new cafeteria at South
Sumter High School.
Shirley said they'd like to
work with the county to make
the new cafeteria "hurricane
hardened" for shelter in the
storms.
A mandate passed earlier
this year required that porta-
bles be eliminated from public
school campuses.
Shirley said they're doing
pretty good on portables, but
notes they still rely on them for
some things, mainly for
resource rooms and for the
"bubble" classroom. That's
when there's an unexpected
burst in a grade level or other
group that may be temporary.
"Do you build a new church
to accommodate the Easter
Sunday crowd?"
This year, there are between
7,600 and 7,800 students in
Sumter County, including stu-
dents at the Villages charter
schools.

Authorities do not know who was driving this 1995 Dodge van that burst into flames after crashing head-on into a tree along
Interstate 75, according to Florida Highway Patrol Public Information Officer Larry Coggins. The wreck happened south of County
Road 470 at 2:45 Sunday afternoon, but the driver, who was headed northbound, "left the scene by unknown means," Coggins said.
There was no license plate on the vehicle and no victims were found inside the van or in the surrounding area, according to
Coggins.

according to a Citrus County
Sheriff's Office arrest report.
A 19-year-old woman from
Morriston said Frederick
Gerald Hicks, 29, had sex with
her after she had been drink-
ing tequila and passed out on
a futon at his house.
According to the report, Hicks
said the sex was consensual,
and he thought she was
awake.
Hicks works as a correc-
tional officer at the Sumter
County Sheriff's Office,
according to the arrest report.
Hicks has been employed by
the sheriff's office for the past
six years.
Hicks has been suspended
without pay pending further
investigation, according to
sheriff's Lt. Bobby Caruthers.
Hicks was taken to the
Citrus County Detention
Facility. His bond was set at
$5, 250.


in May based on a complaint
that animals there were not
being taken care of properly,
Caruthers said.
When a deputy and an ani-
mal control officer arrived,
they found "filthy living con-
ditions" inside the home,
Caruthers said. A deputy
reported that the inside was
"covered with chicken feces"
and one room contained cat
feces.
Officers said they heard
barking coming from a bed-
room, Caruthers said. A
small mixed-breed puppy


was found inside without
food or water.
Officers also found a foot-
long small alligator housed in
an aquarium, scorpions and
two dead snakes.
Outside were two mixed-
breed pit bull dogs, two
turkeys, nine chickens, three
cats and three ducks all
apparently neglected, he
said. Six rats were also
removed from the property.
The animals were placed
in the custody of Sumter
County Animal Control.
A warrant was issued for


Glaze's arrest after officers
could not locate him at the
time of the investigation,
Caruthers said.
Glaze was placed in the
Sumter County Detention
Center Sunday with bond set
at $1,000.
The alligator and snakes
were taken into the custody
of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FFWCC).
Glaze could face additional
charges by the FFWCC for
housing the alligator and
snakes, Caruthers said.

Playing field changes


for local candidates


republican. Democrat.
When it comes to issues
facing local government,
just how important is candidate
party affiliation?
This upcoming elec-
tion season, two County --
Commission incum-
bents are hoping that
just maybe party affilia-
tion isn't as important
as their past voting
records and their char-
acter. At the least,
they're hoping that vot-
ers will see beyond the
small fortunes that are B,
being funneled to their REIC
challengers this cam-
paign season, and not
cast their votes based on costly
campaign ploys.
Last week, incumbent county
commissioners Jim Roberts and
Joey Chandler left behind their
Republican Party affiliation to
run in the November election as
candidates without any party
affiliation.
They are literally candidates
not affiliated with any party.
It's a bold and historic move.
Changing parties or leaving par-
ties just a few months before
election doesn't happen very
often.
Local officeholders have
flipped and flopped on party
affiliation in the past, but not like
this.
Sumter has definitely had its
share in the past two decades of
newborn Republican officehold-
ers hatching from the bodies of
once diehard Democrats.


C
I
H


It wasn't that long ago in
Sumter's history that, if you
weren't running as a Democrat in
a local election, you weren't like-
ly to get elected.
Republicans back then
were as hard to find as
Democrats are now.
But what Roberts and
Chandler have done
w' goes way beyond the
SJ conventional party
changes that just coinci-
dentally seem to hap-
pen as voting majorities
swing.
Do In a county where
HMAN developers and devel-
Sopment are capturing
more and more political
power, the two former
Republicans have seen the writ-
ing on the wall ..
They feel the deck has been
stacked in favor of their
Republican political chal-
lengers, and they've made a bold
move to try and help even out the
game.
This will be the first County
Commission election where vot-
ers will be able to select any can-
didate they choose regardless of
the district they represent.
"One Sumter" opened the door
for countywide elections and
both Chandler and Roberts are
saying that withdrawing from the
Republican Party will give all
voters the opportunity to make a
decision beyond party affiliation.
Their decision is a gamble -but
based on Sumter politics these
days, it's about the only card they
could play and stand a chance of

Why vote? My vote
doesn't count anyway
I have no idea if anyone will read
this article.
I have never been so sick of a state-
ment as the title of this article reads.
My vote does count and so does yours.
Please, if you are talking to me, never
make this statement Instead when
someone asks you if you vote, say I do
not care one way or the other so I do
not vote.
If you care about Sumter County
and your heritage, you will vote.
The election that is coming up for
the two commissioners does count
and if you care about the direction of
this county and your home, you will
vote or tuck your tail between your
legs and move to another area or
maybe tuck your head in the sand like
an ostrich or grumble like most peo-
ple do.
Thousands and thousands of people
in this nation have died for the oppor-
tunity to vote, yet people will not take
the time to vote.
I hear each day the developers are
taking over Sumter County. Well, if a
"dog will not even bark at his own
bone," what do you expect?
The time is most critical for Sumter
County. The developers have their
candidates in place and you have two
that will have the courage to vote
their own minds and that is Jim


Roberts and Joey Chandler My vote
goes to them. Yes, I agree that a lot of
things are not fair and your rights
have been trampled on by special
interest groups. Now is the time to
speak out and vote.
If you do not vote, do not complain.
Register to vote. You have until
August to register. This race is very
critical to Sumter County and your
home and future.

Read the book
then vote
A few weeks ago you printed a letter
written by Mr. Dale Lamb of the
Villages. He recommended that
everyone read the book, "The
Family," written by Kitty Kelly. On his
recommendation, I read the book and
I totally agree. (My utmost respect to
Mr. Lamb and his judgment.)
Any person calling himself an edu-
cated voter needs to read this book. It
should be mandatory reading for all
college students. The mechanics of
our government in actual operation is
very clearly shown. The book is not
just for Republicans, Democrats or
Independents. This book is for all who
vote.

The Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services was former-
ly known as the Health Care
Financing Administration.
Why the name was
changed, with the excep-
tion of an appearance of 9*
change, who really knows?
The respective acron-
yms are CMS and HCFA
A physician's diagnosis
and ultimate treatment
were indicated on a uni-
versal claim form titled
HCFA-1500. It is now
called the CMS-1500.
Although it has ,a new DA
name, the form is the Ro
same. This form also
includes patient's ID,
address, insurer and many other
identifiers of the patient and physi-
cian. It has been a universal physi-
cian claim for more years than I care
to remember, since 1977.
Why?
In June 2001, the name and pro-
gram were changed from HCFA to
CMS.
Official government explanation:
The Department of Health and
Human Services (HHS) changed the
name of the Health Care Financing
Administration (HCFA) to the Centers
for Medicare and Medicaid Services
(CMS) effective June 14. The new


agency will have three business cen-
ters: the Center for Beneficiary
Choices, the Center for Medicare
Management and the
Center for Medicaid and
State Operations.
This was the first indica-
tion that the new adminis-
tration decided to do away
with, i.e. privatize, the
archaic social welfare pro-
grams of Presidents
Roosevelt and Johnson.
Is this, a necessary
move? My opinion:
Without question!
4N However, it seems to me
IAN that this particular admin-
istration and aligned con-
gresses were not prepared
to touch Social Security. In fact, it is
now historical fact. The writing,
preparation, education of citizens for
proper interpretation of The
Medicare Prescription Drug,
Improvement and Modernization Act
of 2003 (MMA-2003) are abysmal, and
prevented any movement with the
reorganization of Social Security. It
was an awful show.
We shall not hear much more about
Social Security reform for three to
seven years.
In actuality, the strides taken for
proposed Social Security reform
were in all actuality far better than

School is
open again
It's that time of year again for
schools bells, backpacks, and yel-
low buses. Most importantly, it's a
time when children are on our
roads and sidewalks, eager to get to
school. This is an exciting time for
both children and parents, and we
can all help to assure them a safe
start to the school year Drivers
need to be extra cautious now that
summer has come to an end.
Thousands of children will be wait-
ing at school bus stops or walking
and biking to school, often at dawn
when it can be particularly hard to
see them. Statistics show that one-
fifth of all children age 14 and
under who die in motor vehicle
crashes are pedestrians. Many of
these fatalities are children who
run across the street, not paying
attention to oncoming vehicles..
Children are at a disadvantage
because they are less visible to
motorists. Children are also less
capable than adults of judging
where and when it's safe to cross
the street and less likely to fully
understand the consequences of
their potential misjudgments.
Motorists need to keep this in mind
and pay extra attention so that we
can keep the children safe, not only
.in these first few critical weeks, but
throughout the entire school year.
AAA Auto Club South will be car-
rying out its annual "School's Open
- Drive Carefully" educational
campaign throughout the months of
August and September and AAA
School Safety Patrol members will
be on full alert at schools for dan-
gerous situations. We ask that all
motorists be on full alert too. The
best protection to avoid a fatal mis-
take is for drivers to slow down.
Every mile per hour you reduce
your speed allows for greater reac-
tion time. This could be the differ-
ence between life and death for a
child that unexpectedly darts
across the street That child could
be yours!
Whether it's the beginning, mid-
dle, or end of the year, always


remember, "School's Open Drive
Carefully."

An open letter to fellow
residents of Sumter
I am writing this letter because I
love Sumter County. I have called
Sumter County home for all of my
36 years. The recent comments by
one of our county commissioners
has provoked me to do something I
have never done, which is write
this letter to the local paper. I do
not claim to be the smartest person,
and I am certainly not the wealthi-
est. However, I live in Sumter
County, specifically south Sumter
County, not because I am "broke,"
but because I love living here. It is
rural, and at the moment, it is still
beautiful. Most of the people in my
neighborhood are the same people
that lived here when I was still
using a bicycle for transportation.
I happen to work in a doctor's
office near The Villages. Most of
our patients are Villages residents,
and most of them are friendly
enough. But it is people like
Michael Francis who give The
Villages residents their, for lack of a
better description. "stuck-up" rep-
utation. He obviously doesn't know
much about the south end of the
county that he is supposed to rep-
resent all of. Isn't that what the
"One Sumter" movement was all
about? The southern area of
Sumter County is long overdue for
a recreational park for kids and
adults. It appears to me that Mr.
Francis is not concerned about the
welfare of our community. And his
blatant disregard for all of us
"broke" people "down here" is
more than enough reason for
everyone to put an end to people
like him trying to take over our
county government
I urge everyone to go out and vote
at election time. Vote for people
that are going to be fair for all of
Sumter County. If you aren't regis-
tered, go register now. Do it to save


our county, our home, from being
choked out by The Villages.

Webster
Smart move for,
Chandler, Roberts
Back in the 1980s, the
Republican Party was just begin-
ning to interest folks in Sumter
County. We then elected county
commissioners "at large."
Several of us got together and
were able to put a measure on a
November ballot to have them
elected by "member districts." -
That process worked well until
last year when we were again
asked to vote for "at large" com-
missioners. Many of us believed -
then and still believe that this was
a move in the wrong direction.
Now we are faced with the pos-
sibility of candidates facing other
candidates who claim to be of the
same party in the primary elec-
tion.
Two of them did the smart thing,
and decided to run in November
with no party affiliation. This 4
allows any voter to vote for the
candidate of his/her choice with- "
out regard for either party.
I hope that many good conserva-
tive voters of both major parties
will vote for Roberts and Chandler,
in the best interest ofalloffSumter
County. We need them. :
And we need to return to the sin-
gle member districts that served
the county well for many years.
One Sumter was bad for us in the,
1980s and is bad for us now.

MMA-2003; albeit it, we never saw a

the extended life span of the Greatest

For the second time in 40 years the
government (note: different side of
the aisle) implemented a plan it knew
nothing about; both Johnson, etc., in
1965 and Bush, etc., in 2003.
Blue Cross-Blue Shield saved the

County stands behind bid award despite objections


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Despite protests by two
other companies, county
commissioners on July 25
stood behind a previous deci-
sion to award a bid for home
inspections in The Villages to
a company owned by a former
county employee.
Commissioners unani-
mously voted to deny protests
filed with- the county by two
other bidders, M.T Causley,
Inc. and CAPRI Engineering,
LLC.
Commissioners voted June

construction inspections of

Villages.
The -two companies
claimed the county did not
award the bid based on
advertised criteria.
Brian Rusu, Sunshine's
president, left his job as a
building inspector with the
county in mid-May.
Shortly after, the corpora-
tion was legally formed May
22, the same day its response
to the county's RFQ (request
for proposal) was submitted,
according to the formal
protest filed by Causley.
, Rusu worked as a county
building inspector since 1999
and was promoted to chief
building inspector in 2004,
according to documents filed


House Services.
The service was described
as "reverse direct deposit."
Last week, city commis-
sioners voted to adopt an ordi-
nanice requiring permits for
special events including cir-
cuses, carnivals, sporting
events, concerts, seasonal
sales events such as fireworks
or Christmas tree sales, reli-
gious revivals, temporary
sales events and craft fairs.
The ordinance prohibits
temporary uses and special
events from happening on the
same property more than
twice in a 12-month period.
The ordinance lists specific
criteria for automobile and
recreational vehicle sales,
which must be vacant proper-
ty at least one acre in size and
not a part of a shopping center

with the county.
Sunshine was "formed
undoubtedly just to submit
solicitation on this RFQ,"
said Causley's attorney, Berk
Edwards.
He argued that the bid was
awarded based on Rusu's
experience performing
inspections in The Villages,
not established criteria.
"Under that criteria, no one
else could possibly qualify for
the award of this contract,"
Edwards said.
The RFQ required all com-
panies to carry specified
amounts of insurance at the
time the responses were sub-
mitted and Sunshine was not
insured, he said.
"All the other bidders had
insurance."


Also, in its submission,
Sunshine supplied letters of
recommendation that
referred to Rusu, not the
company.
Edwards said the county
overlooked three of the four
set criteria.
"It can't be equal unless
everyone is required to do
the same thing."
Larry Marchbanks,
Sunshine's attorney, argued
that the initial decision to
award the contract to
Sunshine was "accurate and
well within the law."
He said the selection com-
mittee that reviewed the sub-
missions was right to choose
Sunshine because of Rusu's
previous experience in The
Villages, which was not part


of the four criteria.
Language in the bid adver-
tisement "gave the selection
committee and this board the
opportunity clearly to go
beyond the four criteria,"
Marchbanks told commis-
sioners.
"To ignore the qualifica-
tions of Brian Rusu ... defies
common sense."
While the company was not
insured, a certificate of insur-
ance "for bid purposes only"
was supplied.
If the company bought the
insurance and lost the bid,
"my client would have had to
cancel the insurance and
paid 25 percent of the premi-
um," as a penalty for cancel-
ing, he said.
"The bottom line is, the


insurance is available. It is
ready," he said.
County Attorney Randall
Thornton said the issue of
insurance is whether the
company is insured at the
time the county enters into a
contract.
Regarding consideration of
Sunshine's experience in
The Villages, he told commis-
sioners "you want to retain
the right to be subjective and
look at (bidders) from differ-
ent perspectives."
Commission Vice Chair-
man Jim Roberts said the
committee considered Rusu's
experience along with the
other criteria. He made the
motion to deny the protests
and the board followed with a
5-0 vote.

, Weeds are common to all
i 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 pout 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

shape. Examples of sedges--_.-'
include yellow nutsedge, some-
times called nutgrass, purple :-
nutsedge and globe nutsedge
Annuals complete their lifecy
cle in less than one year arid -
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 an4
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 simple and tlfe
creeping perennials. Simple
perennials reproduce by sedd
only and examples are dande-
lion, dock, broadleaf plantain
and Florida betony. Creepinig
perennials reproduce by both
seed and vegetative parts and.
are the most troublesome to;
control. Examples of this group;
are wild strawberry, creeping
beggarweed, dollarweed (pen- -
nywort), bermudagrass, nut-
grass and johnsongrass.

Myself. Richard also does his around at about the same
S iog hunting in the daytime and speed. ...


Chipper is about half my age
and from time to time he has to
slow down a tad for me to try
and keep up with him. He rush-
es in to help his dogs when
they've caught a hog.
Richard uses mountain curr
dogs for his hog .hunting and
these dogs are not very big. But
what they might lack in size,
they make up for big time with
pure grit The mountain curr
dogs also have good noses and
the ability to trail up hogs and
then they have the courage to
bay up the hogs until Richard
and Terry can get to them and
finish the hogs off with a rifle.
Chipper, on the other hand,
has trail and bay dogs but he
also has dogs that will go in and
actually catch the hogs by the
ears and hold them until
Chipper and anyone else with
him can get to the dogs and
then catch the hog and tie it up:
On the hog hunting trip down
to Arcadia, Richard and Terry
had seven of their dogs with
them including one very spe-
cial dog called Tripod. Tripod
only has three legs, that are
functional. A couple of years
ago while on a hog hunt Tripod


got hit with the sharp tusks
from a big boar hog and the bad
cut from the boar resulted in
one of Tripod's back legs
becoming permanently para-
lyzed.
You can bet that even though
Tripod only has three legs that
function that handicap has not
slowed him down one iota.
Tripod is the boss dog and the
one who leads the pack when a
hog is jumped. He also is right
in the middle of the action bay-
ing up a hog when Richard gets
to the fray.
On our trip down to Arcadia,
we got rid of about a dozen hogs
but there were plenty more left
that Richard and Terry will
take care of further down the
road. We bayed up a bunch of
the hogs and shot them and a
couple of the hogs were in
prime shape so we brought
them back so that Richard
could make some smoked pork
sausage from them.
It was really hot on the day
we were hunting. Even though
we waited till it had cooled off
a little before we started hunt-
ing, it was real hard on the
dogs. The first track we found


Tripod, the three-legged mountain curr dog on a hog hunt.


was on the edge of the water-
melon field and it was a good
mile and half to the far side to
where there was a real bad
bunch of high palmettos.
This, as we expected, was
right where the dogs took off.
The dogs were hot on the hog's
trail. We had to skirt the field to
get to the place where the dogs
were baying. When we finally
busted into where the dogs
were baying .the hog, one of
Richard's dogs was lying down
breathing hard. He had not
been hurt by the hog but it was
evident that he was in bad
shape.
Richard quickly took care of
the hog and we got the dog back


out to truck where it was plain
to see that the dog was in trou-
ble. The best we could deter-
mine was that due to the heat it
had suffered a heart attack We
did everything we could to cool
it down and try to help it but
the courageous dog did not
make it. Folks, that sure put a
damper on our hunt but
Richard said and I had to agree
,'the dog was doing what it
loved to do."
Hog hunting is not for every-
one that is for sure but if you
are inclined for a little real-life
adventure and excitement
every once in a while you might
want to tag along on a Cracker
style hunt sometime.

She's quiet with a loving


LINDA GRAVES
Humane Society

Autumn is a beauty with long
colorful hair and big golden
eyes.
She is a quiet cat with a lov-
ing personality. Autumn enjoys
being brushed while purring on
your lap.
She would like a quiet house-
hold with someone who will
appreciate her gentle
demeanor. Autumn is 3 years
old, spayed, and current on her
vaccinations.
If you would like to adopt
Autumn, call the Humane
Society/SPCA of Sumter County

website at: www.hsspca.org.
Vacationing with our pets can
be an enjoyable experience.
Preparation is key to a safe and
fun filled time; Traveling with
your cat may take some special
preparations to assure your cat
also has an enjoyable experi-
ence.
Well before your travel date,
get your cat accustomed to a
travel crate. You can do this by
having the crate in your house
with the door open and putting
tempting treats inside. Kitty
won't be able to resist Do not
close the door, just let Kitty go
in and out as she pleases. Next
put a small litter box inside and
leave the door open.. A favorite


personality


Autumn is 3 years old, spayed, and current on her vaccinations.


blanket or towel on the inside
'floor of the crate will round out
the secure den feeling. Soon
Kitty will be going in and out of
her soon-to-be home away from
home. Once. Kitty is comfort-
able with her new den, close
the door for short periods of
time while she is inside.
Your next step is to take short
car rides or day trips with Kitty
in her crate. You never can pre-
dict when an accidental escape
may occur, so be sure your cat is
wearing identification, and/or
is microchipped.-Keeping Kitty


in a crate is not only safe for
her, but will help keep your
mind on your driving, and not
on where a loose cat would be
in the car.
As you prepare for your long
awaited vacation, plan ahead.
Check out which hotels wel-
come pets.
Most campgrounds are pet
friendly, and camping with a
cat can be much easier than
with a dog.
Pack your cat's favorite food
and toys. Bring food and water
dishes, a litter box and litter,


and old towels to clean up any
spills. Many people train their
cats to wear a cat harness and;
walk on a leash. Then .Kitty i's
able to experience the green,
grass and exciting scents wherO
ever you are vacationing.. ":
Always carry your cat's vacci-',
nation records and an emer-,
gency first aid kit. *:
Remember to bring your:
camera. You will want to cap-:
ture those memorable'
moments of a fun-filled vaca-I
tion through the eyes of your-
kitty.

Some helpful hints for freezing fresh fruit

"If you properly freezer bags or wide
ieeze fruits you can retain mouth glass jars are suitable
much of their fresh flavor and containers for freezing fruits.


Do not use the following
household containers for
freezing: cardboard cartons
that milk; ice cream and cot-
tage cheese come in because
they are not moisture vapor
resistant enough.
Only regular canning jars
should be used in freezing
because other jars break too
easily at freezer tempera-
tures.
Preparing the fruit is the
next procedure.
You will sort, wash and
drain the fruits carefully. Be
sure to discard parts that are
green or of poor quality. Wash
fruit quickly and do not allow
to soak in wash water or it will
lose nutrients and flavor.
Prepare enough fruit for only


a few containers at a time
because some fruits tend to
darken rapidly
Galvanized equipment is
not recommended for use
with fruits because the acid in
the fruit dissolves zinc, which
can be harmful in large
amounts.
There are four different
ways to pack fruits for freez-
ing: syrup pack, sugar pack,
dry pack or unsweetened
pack The sugar or syrup pack
gives fruits a better texture
and flavor. '
If an individual is watch
their sugar intake the sugar is
not necessary to safely pre-
serve the fruit and the sugar
can be left out or artificial
sweetener can be substituted.


Fruits packed in syrup are
generally best for uncooked
dessert use and dry sugar or
unsweetened are best for
most cooking purposes.
Be sure to leave enough
space at the top whatever
method you choose; this
allows for expansion of the
food as it freezes. Refer to
University of Florida, IFAS
Extension fact sheet:
Preserving Food: Freezing
Fruits.
Packaging, labeling and
storing are the last steps in
preparing your fruits for the
freezer. Before closing freezer
containers, make sure sealing
edges are free of moisture and
food particles. Seal the con-
tainer removing all air possi-


ble and label with the follow-
ing information: Name of
food, date and type of pack
Freeze packaged fruits as
quickly as possible at 0
degrees F
Your fruits will maintain
high quality for eight to twelve
months at 0 degrees F or
below; citrus fruits and citrus
juices for four to six months.
