County approves water system for new industry


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent


It must have seemed like
one last showdown for Sumter
County Commissioners Jim
Roberts and Joey Chandler on
Tuesday as the board debated
and approved a revised plan to
help provide water and sewer
services to a proposed major
industrial project
Roberts and Chandler -
joined by Commissioner
Randy Mask voted to
approve a request from the


City of Bushnell to change the
target site in an interlocal
agreement that may eventual-
ly pay for part of the cost to
provide municipal infrastruc-
ture to a proposed large Sysco
Corporation food distribution
warehouse.
That approval came with
opposition from Commission-
ers Michael Francis and
Richard Hoffman, similar to
what they presented earlier
this year when the board
approved the contract for an
earlier proposed site.
For Roberts and Chandler, it


may be their last board battle
for some time. Both suffered
stinging defeats at the polls
earlier this month and were
sitting for their last board
meeting as commissioners.
Bushnell Public Works


Director Bruce Hickle told the
board that Sysco had deter-
mined that the originally pro-
posed project site adjacent to
the Sumter County Solid Waste
Facility at Sumterville was no
longer suitable for its needs.


However, the firm was still
interested in a possible
Sumter location on County
Road 313, west of both
Bushnell and Interstate 75, he
said. It is an area of about 85
acres.
This site posed the same
challenges as the last: city
water and sewer are needed.
But, according to the project
estimates presented by
Bushnell officials, this site
could actually cost the county
less than the original $700,000
cap set in the former agree-
ment It might be closer to


$325,000.
The city officials also
requested that the board
amend the agreement so it
would not be site-specific.
However, the board followed
the advice of County Attorney
Randall Thornton and amend-
ed the contract for the specific
location.
Chandler commented that
"it's a good company and
would be a benefit to the coun-
ty."

Villages vote controls election. outcome


lectim ANALYSIS


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

While the majority ofvoting
precincts and districts sup-
ported incumbent county
commissioners Joey
Chandler and Jim Roberts in
the Nov. 7 election, both can-
didates still lost election to
their respective Republican
challengers Doug Gilpin and
Garry Breeden.
Though each only received
about 20 percent of the votes
overall, both Chandler and
Roberts, running with no
party affiliation, overwhelm-
ingly captured the winning
votes geographically in the
county. They secured the
most votes at most precincts
and in most districts but
they were still defeated.
The win for Gilpiri and
Breeden is based on strong
voter support primarily in
The Villages. That strong vot-
ing block overshadowed the
support that Chandler and
Roberts received from other
voting districts.
County Commission dis-
tricts are divided based on
population estimates. Each
district contains roughly the
same amount of people. But
while districts may be fairly


divided in terms of popula-
tion, those districts tell a very
different story when you con-
sider the actual number of
registered voters in each one.
Here's how Chandler, rep-
resenting District 2, and
Roberts, representing
District 4, carried most of the
voting districts but lost the
election to their Republican
challengers.
Chandler and Roberts lost
in Districts 1 and 3 but
received the majority of votes
in Districts 2, 4 and 5.
Districts 1 and 3 encompass a
large percentage of Villages
voters.
While all five voting dis-
tricts may contain about the
same amount of people, the
most active and greatest num-
ber of voters live in Districts I
and 3.
-Of- Siumiters estimated
49,863 registered -oterN,
about 60 percent oftlhos4 v'ot-
ers, 30,126 voters, live within
Districts 1 and 3, according to
statistics filed at the
Supervisor of Elections
Office. With those two dis-
tricts containing so many vot-
ers, they actually controlled
the outcome of the County
Commission races.

in the Nov. 7 election. While County Commission incumbents Jim Roberts and Joey Chandler carried about two-thirds of the
geographical area of Sumter County, Republican challengers Garry Breeden and Doug Gilpin won the largest amount of con-
centrated votes in the northern and northeastern portion of the county winning the election. Democratic challengers Miranda
Skipper and Ron Allen also carried several precincts in the northern portion of the county.

More than 50 years after
Army Master Sgt. Alfred H.

Alonzo, of Tampa, served in
the U.S. Army from 1945 until
he was presumed dead in M
1953. N
About 30 friends and family N
members, including the sol- di

ore than 50 years after he was presumed dead, the remains of Army Master Sgt. Alfred H. Alonzo Sr. were interred at Florida
national Cemetery last week. Alonzo's remains were among those of at least 10 Americans recently discovered by a farmer in
orth Korea. About 30 family members and friends attended last week's service.

after a North Korean farmer

A Nobleton couple and
their daughter were arrested
last week in what police are
calling a large and elaborate
marijuana growing operation.
These arrests and more
than 10 others were a result of
a broader investigation,
dubbed "Operation Home
Grown," by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement, Drug Enforce-

Force and sheriff's offices in
multiple counties, according

members of the same family
or friends of the family, were
made last week in Hernando
County, where the investiga-
tion began, and in Citrus,
Highlands, Martin and
Okeechobee counties.
In all, more than 650 mari-
juana plants were seized from
30 rooms located in structures
that ranged from homes,
garages, sheds, to barns,
according to an FDLE press
release.
In a hidden room of the
Nobleton home, police seized
109 marijuana plants, each at
least five feet tall, Caruthers
said.
Luis Almenares, 45, of 7416
CR 659, was arrested Nov. 7
for cultivating/manufacturing
marijuana, trafficking in
cannabis, possession of para-
phernalia, theft of utilities,
resisting an officer without
violence and violation of pro-
bation.
His wife, Barbara Buires,
43, and the couple's daughter,
Gliset Almenares, 22, were
each arrested for trafficking

else since he learned his
father had been found.
"It was a big relief because
I always wanted my dad to
come home," said Alonzo Jr.,
whose mother is no longer
living.

But, Hoffman and Francis
disagreed.
Funding the project would
enhance the value of some-
one's privately owned proper-
ty, Hoffman said. "I don't think
we should be doing that with
taxpayers' money."
There are four industrial
parks in the Wildwood area
that were developed without
county funding, he said.
"We're getting on dangerous
ground. I think we're going to
open the door to get many
requests for taxpayers' money
to enhance private projects."
Hoffman also asked if any-
one on the board was affiliat-
ed with the owners of the pro-
posed land tract, if they
should not abstain from voting
on the issue.
Chandler responded that
the owners employed him. He
also later noted that Hoffman
would not have had to ask, but
he was going to acknowledge
that.
Thornton said that it was
proper for Chandler to
declare that relationship, but
since it was not an issue of
personal gain for Chandler, it
would not be necessary for
him to abstain from voting.
Chandler also commented
that the commissioners didn't
object to spending $13 million
on improving US 301 near
Wildwood and Oxford so that
businesses and developers in
that area could continue to
benefit.
Roberts asked Hickle who
would own the services paid
for with the county funds and
was told that Bushnell would
own the water mains, sewer
lines and water storage tank
"We're trying to get money
to entice 400 good-paying
jobs," Chandler said.
But Francis argued that
while the original project was
in the county, this new site is
in the City of Bushnell.
"I don't see how we could


facturing
cannabis and
possession of
parapherna-
lia.
All three
suspects
were held at
the Sumter
County
Luis Detention
Almenares Center with-
out bond.
Caruthers said there were
originally nine search war-
rants served at different hous-
es, including the one in
Nobleton.
"Out of that, we discovered
nine marijuana grow houses
with plants growing inside.
Three houses had growing
equipment installed but there
were no plants at the time," he
said.
"All these houses were simi-
lar. They were remodeled
with hidden rooms or sections
of it to grow marijuana. They
had to divert massive amounts
of power to the grow houses,"
he said.
A hydroponic method was
used to grow the plants.
"Instead of planting seeds
in soil, they planted them in
pots on water," he said.
"This was an elaborate sys-
tem they had set up."


"It took a lot of weight off
our shoulders."
At the North Korean burial
site, remains of at least 10
soldiers were uncovered,
along with other items.
Identification tags, including
Alonzo's, were also found.
In Unsan County, where
Alonzo Sr.'s remains were
found, U.S. forces fought
Chinese units in the battles
of Unsan and the Chong


pick one over the other four,"
he said. "It raises serious
questions. Other cities could
be demanding money."
He also contended that
Sysco is a "Fortune 500" com-
pany and is well financed.
"We don't need to subsidize
them by any means."
Francis also suggested that
the issue be tabled until the
new, incoming commissioners
are seated.
Roberts said that the county
is not giving the money to
Sysco and that there weren't
any objections when the coun-
ty recently gave Wildwood
$300,000 for Hughey Street
improvements.
"We're broadening the tax


Chon River in November and
December 1950, according to
a Department of Defense
news release.
About 300 U.S. soldiers are
believed to be missing in
Unsan County from those
battles.
During the Chosin
Campaign, also in November
and December 1950, more
than 1,000 Americans were
missing from combat against


base of this county," Roberts
said.
Mask said he looked at the
situation as a business issue:
there will be other businesses
served by the utilities and
Sysco would generate more
than $200,000 a year in taxes.
"I'll gladly put money up
front if I'll keep getting that
for years to come," Mask said.
He hadn't heard who owned
the property and it didn't mat-
ter, he said. "It's the jobs."
'Roberts moved to amend
the agreement and Mask pro-
vided the second.
But, before the three-two
vote of approval, Bushnell
Mayor Joe Strickland offered
some observations.

Chinese forces.
Over 8,100 soldiers are still
missing from the Korean War.
Alonzo Sr.'s funeral was
held the day before the annu-
al Veterans Day ceremony at
Florida National Cemetery
was scheduled.
The event usually draws an
audience of 2,000 people, and
there are roughly 80,000
graves within the 513-acre
cemetery.


"I just want to remind the
board that everyone in the
city is also a county taxpayer,"
he said.
Hoffman asked him if the
city would get money from the
utility services and eventually
recoup the investment on the
extension of the systems.
"What more do you want,"
Strickland responded. "It'll all
come back to you in two to
three years."
"I don't financially gain a
bit, I just dig ditches,"
Chandler said.

S- According
to police,
stolen elec-
tricity was
used to sup-
ply the
Nobleton
grow house.
I"At the
main feed
Gliset where it
Almenares would go into
the house,
they did a power diversion ...
they dug underground ... and
they diverted it to the grow
operation itself," Caruthers
said.
The Withlacoochee River
Electric Cooperative, the
local power company, took a
financial hit as a result of the
marijuana growing opera-
tions, he said, adding electric-
ity usage equaling an estimat-
ed $900 to $1,200 per month
was used for the Nobleton
grow house.
Altogether, power company
officials believe "they've lost
anywhere from $150,000 to
$200,000," he said.
"They (the Nobleton family)
were able to cultivate ... 30 to
40 pounds every three
months. You're probably talk-
ing, per house per year,
between $250,000 to $500,000"
in marijuana, he said. ,


"All the
marijuana
that was culti-
vated was
being trans-
ported to
Miami."
The family
previously
owned the
Barbara Havana
Buires House restau-
rant in
Hernando in Citrus County,
but "even that, detectives
believe, was a front," he said.
According to the press
release, "The investigation
into the grow operation began
in July after Florida Highway
Patrol troopers from
Hernando County found mari-
juana grow operation materi-
als in a vehicle during a rou-
tine traffic stop.
"The troopers contacted
FDLE special agents with
information on the vehicle.
Local DEA task force mem-
bers conducted surveillance
and gathered information that
revealed a network of indoor
marijuana grow operations
that were active throughout
Highlands County."
The investigation is contin-
uing and more arrests are
expected, according to the
release.


ELECTION

continued from Page 1

Another contributing factor
to the loss for the incumbents
may have been that Districts
2,4 and 5 have a substantially
larger percentage of inactive
voters than the other two dis-
tricts, according to
Supervisor of Elections
Office statistics. Less voters
went to the polls in the three
districts captured by
Chandler and Roberts.
When voters approved One
Sumter a few years ago, it
opened the doors to dramatic
changes for County
Commission elections.
In the past, only voters
residing in a particular dis-
trict could vote for candi-
dates within that district. In
other words, if One Sumter
had not been approved,
Roberts would have been
elected to the District 4 seat
and Chandler would have
been elected to the District 2
seat.
Both Roberts and Chandler
led in their respective dis-
tricts and in each other's dis-
tricts. In Chandler's District
2, Chandler received 1,226
votes, compared to chal-
lengers Doug Gilpin with 692
and Ronald Allen
(Democratic challenger) with
1,050 votes. Roberts received
1,259 votes, compared to chal-
lengers Garry Breeden with
745 votes and Miranda
Skipper (Democratic chal-
lenger) with 917 votes.
In Roberts' District 4,
Roberts received 1,974 votes,
compared to challengers
Breeden with 807 votes and
Skipper with 606 votes.
Chandler received 1,860


votes, compared to chal-
lenger Gilpin with 795 and
Allen with 727.
Roberts and Chandler also
took the highest amount of
votes in District 5.
In that district, Roberts
received 1,207 votes, com-
pared to challengers
Breeden with 806 and
Skipper with 746 votes.
Chandler received 1,132
votes, compared to chal-
lenger Gilpin with 798 and
Allen with 857.
But where the two incuni-
bents failed to garner enough
votes was in District 1 and
District 3. By losing in those
districts, Roberts and
Chandler actually received
the least amount of votes
when all district votes were
tallied.
In those two districts,
Roberts' challenger,
Breeden, and Chandler's
challenger, Gilpin, easily took
the majority of votes turning
the election their way.
In District 1, Breeden easi-
ly lead the group with 6,095
votes while Roberts received
806 votes and Skipper
received 2,162 votes. Gilpin
also was the easy winner,
receiving 6,334 votes while
Chandler received 594 votes
and Allen received 2,294
votes.
In District 3, Breeden had
7,506 votes while Roberts
received 1,388 votes and
Skipper received 2,566.
Gilpin received 7,645 votes
while Chandler received
1,049 votes and Allen
received 2,945 votes.

Two Louisiana men got more
-than a speeding ticket during a
traffic stop last week after a
iFlorida Highway Patrol officer
-allegedly discovered $100,000
in cash, in addition to drugs
,and paraphernalia in their
,vehicle.
a The driver, 34-year-old Tuan
jfran, was stopped on
Interstate 75 near Bushnell on
ENov. 8 in a 2007 Chevrolet SUV
jor following another vehicle
itoo closely, according to FHP
,Public Information Officer
jLarry Coggins..


During the stop, the two men
"were interviewed and had
conflicting stories about their
travels," according to Coggins.
An FHP K-9 unit "arrived on
scene and alerted to the vehi-
cle. A subsequent search of the
vehicle revealed over $100,000
hidden in the vehicle along
with MDMA (Ecstasy) pills.
Both subjects were arrested
for possession of MDMA and
money laundering."
Tuan Tran and passenger
Hai Tran, 32, were also arrest-
ed for possession of parapher-
nalia and taken to the Sumter
County Detention Center. Bond
was set at $30,000 for each of
the men.


Tuesday, Nov. 7
Danny Boyer, 59, Lake

Seeing the results

Your VOICE


o, how do you like the results of
One Sumter? If you're in The
Villages you may just be ecstat-
ic. If you're not, you may just be shak-
ing your head in absolute dismay.
The general election was the first
time in decades that county commis-
sioners have been elected
by the majority of voters in
Sumter County.
Now, it's time to see just
how voters feel about the
voter-approved 2004 ballot .
issue that ended single- ..
member voting districts and
instead opened the county J1
commission races to all vot- :
ers.
Jim Roberts and Joey
Chandler are the first to feel
the sting of the One Sumter Bc
initiative. Both men would REICI
have retained their board -
seats if the election had
been decided only by the voters within
their districts.
When the votes were counted, the
election ended with big losses for
Roberts and Chandler and big wins for
their Republican challengers Garry
Breeden and Doug Gilpin.
Did voters have their fair say on
Election Day as One Sumter prom-
ised?


IH


My Town, where is my town? I want
to go visit my town. I cannot find you.
I want to walk along your streets I
once strolled. I want to visit your
place, I cherished. Your two-man post
office, your family run grocery, your
mercantile, your gas filling station,
where a stop for gas included wind-
shields wiped, tires checked, oil
checked, a full service, was a common
thing. The drink box filled to the brim
with ice, one had to stir around to find
his choice drink, He would probably
find Royal Crown Cola, Coca Cola,
Nehi, Veno Punch, Strawberry,
Orange, Grape, 7 up etc.
I want to go out on the lake I used to
swim and fish in, once again. The
open woods where our coon hunting
with the carbide headlamps took
place, our dogs were there, anxious to
give chase. Our hunting rabbits on a
good night we could dress and sell
them to regular customers, to whom
they were a specialty.
All the back roads that were so fun
to travel are now paved. The places
where we pulled the Spanish moss
that hung from the big oak trees; there
was a market for it in the past. Where
are the ponds that we found the bull-
frogs in to bring home to make a tasty
meal similar to fried chicken?
We loved the back roads, where the
sand piled high in the ruts; one had to
get a running start to get through
those deep sandy ruts.
However sweet and enticing the air
of change, I want my town; I want to go
back there. I want to see, feel, and
hear all the things to which I was
accustomed. I want to visit those
places where we as young folks, loved
to walk, talk, and plan our futures
together.
Oh! I want to go there once again, to
take my grandchildren back and show
them all your places where we were
so at home.
The scenery, the blue skies, the rip-


ple on the water, the good old swim-
ming hole, at the end of the dock, the
old platform from which we dove off
into the water.
I remember the clean, clear water,
white sandy beaches, and the smell of
fish spawning nearby. You could hear
frogs croaking, birds like the red
winged oriole, the wild mallards and
the blackbirds all making their
sounds, while feeding around through
the cattails, saw grass, lily pads and
hyacinths.
The farming areas such as the toma-
to fields as far as you could see; the
fields of watermelons and can-
taloupes with long, long rows.
The packinghouses, which ran the
fruit and vegetables through for mar-
ket stayed busy day and night. Sweet
corn grown over on the riverbanks
was known for its sweet tender flavor
My town, where the old church
house stood, the one we got married
in, the one we attended so faithfully,
where so many fond memories took
place in our early lives. Those memo-
ries have penetrated deeply within
the core of our being.
My town, my place, where are you?
Where may you be hiding? Are you
just an echo of the past? Do you even
exist at all? Can you hear my calling to
you? I long to find you, to visit you,
that quiet little place I once lived,
where I experienced your breezes,
blowing strongly through my hair and
into my face repeatedly.
My eyes strain to find you. I listen
and I hear nothing, nothing familiar at
all. I long to see your fields, I long to
hear the horn of the ole train as it flies
by, like a big fire engine going to a fire.
Oh! Little town of mine, I long for
you, my most loved friend, I see you
only vaguely through the hazy mist of
my old and fading memory.
Sincerely,
Mary Rebecca Twiss
Belleview


While the One Sumter concept was
promoted as a means to allow all voters
their voice in County Commission elec-
tions, it may have resulted in just the
opposite.
While the majority of voters picked
Breeden and Gilpin as their choices
for the board, the majority of
voters outside the two
Villages districts picked
Roberts and Chandler
In reality, what One
Sumter did was allow the
two County Commission
S? races to be decided largely
S by voters in The Villages.
About 60 percent of
Sumter voters live in or near
The Villages, and a higher
percentage of those voters
1B actually vote than their
IMAN counterparts in other dis-
wS tricts.
This election just may
prove that what some voters bought as
a good idea to increase their say in
local elections, may have actually had
the opposite effect.
One Sumter has actually decreased
the power of many of Sumter's voters
throughout the county by allowing a
concentration of voters in the north
and northeastern portions of the coun-
ty to decide election outcomes.


Join us for
Christmas meeting
The Sumter County Historical
Society will not have a November
meeting due to Thanksgiving, but
would like to invite all interested
persons to our annual Christmas
meeting and social event.
We will have a short meeting on
Dec. 7, at 6 p.m. at the Sumterville
Community Building in
Sumterville. Following the meet-
ing, we invite all interested persons
to bring a covered dish and join us
for the evening.
If you would like to join us and
don't know what to bring, we will be
happy to help coordinate the menu.

Agreeing with
Bushnell mayor
I agree with the Mayor of
Bushnell in his opposition to the


upcoming MSTU issue. He is to be
thanked for bringing this to our
attention and now let's do our part
to insure it doesn't happen.
This Municipal Service Taxing
Unit(s) MSTU will be a separate
line item on your annual tax bill in
addition to the fire assessment you
now pay.
This taxation must be returned to
the district from which it is collect-
ed. Thus it is easy to see The
Villages will get the lion's share of
such taxation.
In the past, the Board of County
Commissioners has allocated funds
to the various fire stations through-
out the county based upon need
and quality of service. Contact your
County Commissioners (793-0200 or
209 N. Florida, Bushnell 33513)
today and voice your opposition to
creating the Municipal Service
Taxing Units (MSTU) for Fire
Rescue Services.
It seems there will be a never-
ending barrage of proposals to ben-
efit The Villages.

Thanks for
the assistance

Nov. 7, our first vote in Sumter
County my husband and I recent-
ly moved from St. Petersburg and
we looked forward to the experi-
ence in our new hometown.
What a pleasure! Outside our
polling place, the First Baptist
Church in Center Hill, we were
greeted around 2 p.m. by a kindly
gentleman; we signed in quickly
and easily thanks to an efficient
poll worker with a luxuriant beard
and hair to match who kidded with
me about stealing his good pen;
another worker clearly explained
how to use the voting machines;
one worker correctly described a
certain machine as "slow"; and, as
we left, the same kind gentleman
bantered with my husband.
Thank you, Center Hill poll work-
ers, for such a pleasant first experi-
ence. And certainly Karen Krauss
and her staff deserve thanks for
both a voter-friendly website and a
well organized Nov. 7.

Turkey facts for the upcoming holiday


Okay, so it's your turn to host
the annual Thanksgiving
feast for the entire family.
You're nervous because Aunt Kay
has been cooking
turkeys for 40 years, and
Cousin Debbie is a gour-
met cook Can you tack-
le a turkey without
being traumatized?
Believe it or not, tak-
ing care of "Tom
Turkey" isn't that tough.
Just follow these turkey
facts and your bird will
turn out fine without a
lot of toil and trouble.
The experts at USDAs MAR
Meat and Poultry MAD
Hotline say that each
November, both novice
and experienced cooks
have the same basic questions on
preparing a turkey. Here are the
answers.
How big a turkey should I buy?
You'll need about one pound per
person or a pound and a half per
person if you have hearty eaters or
want ample leftovers.
When should I buy the turkey?
While the quality and taste of
frozen and fresh turkey are quite
similar, a frozen turkey can be pur-
chased months in advance, but
fresh birds should be bought only 1
to 2 days ahead.
What kind of turkey should I buy?
There are basically two types of
raw birds to choose from a pre-
basted bird or an unbasted to
which nothing has been added.
Personal preference usually dic-
tates this choice.
How long will it take to defrost a
turkey?
It's best to defrost your turkey in
the refrigerator. The rule of thumb
is a minimum of 24 hours of defrost
time for every 5 pounds of turkey.
Thus it can take 4 to 5 days to
defrost a 20-pound turkey A com-
pletely thawed bird will last for an
additional 1 to 2 days in the refrig-


erator once defrosted.
If you need to speed up defrost
time, it is safe to defrost the bird in
a large utility sink of cold water
Submerge the wrapped
Sbird in cold water. Check
or change the water
every 30 minutes to make
sure the water remains
cold. Allow 30 minutes
S per pound to defrost this
: way. Please follow all
.- .i safety precautions when
S handling poultry prod-
ucts.
How long should I roast
S the turkey?
THA Roughly 15 to 18 min-
Sutes per pound for an
NOX unstuffed bird, and 18 to
24 minutes per pound for
a stuffed bird. Have your
oven preheated to 325 degrees F.
Use a meat thermometer to deter-
mine doneness. A whole turkey is
done when the temperature reach-
es 180 degrees F in the inner thigh.
A breast is done at 170 degrees F
The juices should run clear.
Stuffing temperature should reach
at least 165 degrees E
Can you roast the turkey the day
before?
Yes. However, for safety reasons,
the cooked bird must be deboned
before being refrigerated. The
carved meat should be stored in
shallow containers. The meat can
then be reheated in the regular
oven the next day for approximate-
ly 10 minutes per pound. To pre-
vent the meat from drying out, add
either the leftover meat drippings,
gravy or turkey broth, and cover
with foil.
Decide how much turkey you
will need before you shop.
Get a meat thermometer
Make sure you have roasting
pan large enough for your turkey.
Allow an adequate number of
days to refrigerator defrost a frozen
bird.
Wash hands, sinks, counter,


utensils and platters thoroughy--
with soap and hot water before and
after working with bird.
a Remember to remove the bag
of giblets from inside the bird.
M Wash the inside and outside of
the turkey in cold water and drain
well.
Stuff right before roasting.
a Place the turkey breast side up
in a shallow roasting pan. You may
want to brush with oil or melted
margarine.
Insert meat thermometer in
inner thigh.
Cover loosely with aluminum
foil.
Roast the bird 15 to 18 minutes
per pound for an unstuffed bird, 18
to 24 minutes per pound for a
stuffed bird.
Remove foil 20-30 minutes
before roasting is finished to allow
the bird to brown.
Remove turkey when dark
meat reaches 180 degrees F and
the stuffing reaches 165 degrees E
Allow the cooked turkey to sit
for 20 minutes before carving.
After dinner, carve leftovers
from bone and refrigerate prompt-
ly. Remember, you have two hours
from the time you take the bird
from the oven.
Smile, enjoy and Happy
Thanksgiving.

1Wildwood brings Allen back to City Commission


AMANDA MIMS,
Staff Writer

Ronald Allen may have lost
the County Commission race
last week, but the Wildwood
City Commission welcomed
him back to the board with
open arms Monday.
.Because Allen sought an
elected position on the County
Commission, he was required


to resign his seat on the City
Commission effective Nov. 6.
But by the time Monday's
regular meeting got under way,
Allen was sworn back into
office.
Allen made a formal request
to city commissioners and the
mayor in a letter dated Nov. 8.
"I would like to take this
opportunity to thank each of
you for your encouragement in
my efforts to win a seat on the

Strickland asked City Attorney

'Anybody who would be
interested (in being considered
to fill the vacancy) could pretty
much read the commission and
know that ... the chances of the
vote going Commissioner
Allen's way would be very
much favorable," Wolf said.


"I'm just wondering, do we
have an obligation to advertise
it?" he asked.
"Within 30 days after the
vacancy occurs you need to
choose some properly quali-
fied person to fill the vacancy,"
Blair said.
"There's nothing in there
(the city code) that says any
procedure you have to follow."
The commission voted unan-
imously to appoint Allen to the


seat.
Before taking his oath of
office, Allen offered thanks to
the.meeting audience.
"I'd like to thank all the citi-
zens of Wildwood. It (the cam-
paign) was an effort to repre-
sent the City of Wildwood. Even
at that token, I didn't think it
was a lostcause, but I appreci-

from the people of the county."

Edward Jones hosts


investment seminar


In 2003, more than 46 mil-
lion Americans received
more than $460 billion in
Social Security benefits,
according to the U.S. Social
Security Administration.
As this number continues
to grow and the benefits of
Social Security diminish,
retirees are concerned about
the possibility of outliving
their income.
While no one knows what
the future of Social Security
holds, there are measures
individuals can take to help
prepare themselves for a ful-
filling retirement.
Edward Jones investment
representative Jo Capporelli
of Bushnell will be sharing
this information by hosting a
free educational seminar on
how to help make your
retirement more comfortable
and rewarding.


The seminar will be
offered at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 1 at
United Methodist Church in
Webster.
"Unfortunately, many peo-
ple aren't aware of the way
they can help make a better
retirement life for them-
selves," said Capporelli. "I'm
going to share several useful
strategies that could help
individuals gain an advan-
tage and stretch the lifespan
of their income."
The seminar will focus on
how to help increase current
and future income and how
to help avoid the financial
risks of retirement through
investing and managing cash
flow.
This seminar is free, but
space is limited.
To make a reservation, call
Capporelli at (352) 568-0406.

SWell, your dismay might be
about to end.
Sumter County, commission-
:,ers: on Tuesday approved a
local ordinance which would
let restaurants with outdoor
dining areas obtain permits to
allow dogs to accompany their


dining owners.
The board's action follows
what has generally been
referred to as the "doggy din-
ing" law approved by the
Florida Legislature earlier
this year.
There was a relatively brief
discussion before the board
adopted the proposed ordi-
nance; but, that doesn't guar-
antee your pooch a place at
the table.
In response to
Commissioner Jim Roberts'


questions, County Attorney
Randall Thornton said that
this is a voluntary option for
restaurants and that there are
specific details of the ordi-
nance that have to be met
For example, applicants for
the permits must provide dia-
grams of the layout and
boundaries of the areas in
which dogs will be permitted.
There are other rules:
"Employees shall be prohib-
ited from touching, petting or
otherwise handling dogs

Salvation Army concerned about having enough volunteers


"We are thankful that folks
are calling and asking about
how to help during the holi-
days," said Bill Stewart, service
center administrator for The
Salvation Army, Sumter County
Service Center.
"Right now we are concerned
that we may not have enough
volunteers to assist with the
various holiday programs.
"Volunteers are still needed
to help Ring the bells at the tra-
ditional Red Kettles as well as
with the Angel Trees' and gift
distribution," Stewart contin-
ued.


Volunteers play a key role in
helping to raise funds that are
used to assist people during the
holidays and throughout the
year.
During last year's holiday
season, 374 people were assist-
ed in Sumter County and that
number is expected to increase
greatly this year.
The Salvation Army kettles
will be seen at the local Wal-
Mart (Bushnell) and Winn-
Dixie in Bushnell and
Wildwood.
Individual volunteers and
organizations often form teams


to ring the bells for one or sev-
eral days.
"We are hoping that local
churches, service clubs, school
groups, and individuals will see
this as an excellent opportunity


to provide help to our friends in
need," said Stewart Many stu-
dents use this opportunity to
earn community service hours.
The Angel Tree provides an
opportunity to select a particu-


lar child or senior citizen and
then purchasing clothing and
other suggested items for them.
The Angel Trees will be at
Wal-Mart (Bushnell), and other
sites throughout the county.
Any churches, offices, or
businesses that would like to
have an Angel Tree are encour-
aged to call The Salvation
Army.
Applications for Christmas
assistance will be taken on Dec.
4 and 5, from 9 a.m. through
noon at The Salvation Army,
Sumter County Service Center
at 870 N. Main Street in


Bushnell.
Holiday assistance is offered
to families and senior citizens,
based on financial need and
available resources.
Persons and groups interest-
ed in volunteering for any of the
holiday programs may visit the
office at 870 N. Main Street in
Bushnell, or call 568-2284.
The Salvation Army is a par-
ticipating agency with United
Way of Lake and Sumter coun-
ties, and the Human Care
Network, the Sumter Chamber
of Commerce and the Sumter
Ministerial Association.


Red Kettle,

Angel Tree


campaigns

to begin

The Salvation Army,
Sumter County Service
Center is pleased to
announce that the traditional
red kettles and the bell
ringers will be in place as of
Friday, Nov. 17, at Winn Dixie
(The Sumter Crossing
Shopping Center, 440 W Gulf
to Atlantic Highway,
Wildwood) and Winn-Dixie
(Walker Ridge Square, 1122
N. Main Street, Bushnell).
The Red Kettles will be at
Wal-Mart (2163 West C-48,
Bushnell) on most days begin-
ning with Friday, Nov. 24
through Saturday, Dec. 23.
The Salvation Army does not
place kettles on Sundays.
"We continue to be thankful
for all the ongoing support
from Winn-Dixie and Wal-
Mart. Wal-Mart has increased
the number of days that we
will be able to be at their
store. This should mean
increased income that will be
used to assist persons who
need help during the holiday
season and beyond. We are
very excited about this oppor-
tunity," said Bill Stewart
,Sumter County Service
Center administrator. "Last
year we were able to assist
1,074 people during the holi-
day season and we expect
that number to increase this
year," Stewart added.
The "Angel Trees" will be in
place at area businesses
throughout the season. Angel
trees serve as a collection
point for clothing and gifts for
needy children, seniors and
disabled adults throughout
Sumter County. For informa-
tion re the "Angel Trees" and
their locations, please call
(352) 568-2284.
The Salvation Army is cur-
rently recruiting individual
volunteers and groups (such
as churches and service
organizations) to assist with
various activities, including
taking applications for assis-
tance, collecting, sorting, and
preparing gifts, as well as for
the Red Kettle campaign.
"The fact that so many people
are helped is due to the many
volunteers and hundreds of
volunteer hours; every volun-
teer has a direct impact on
the number of people we are
able to help," said Stewart.
In 1891, Captain Joseph
McFee wanted to help the
poor people in San Francisco,
especially for the coming
Christmas season, but he did-
n't know where to get funding
for his project.
He remembered, during his
earlier days as a sailor in
Liverpool, England, seeing a
large kettle called "Simpson's
Pot" where passengers of
boats that docked at Stage
Landing tossed coins to help
the poor. The following day
Captain McFee placed a pot
at the Oakland Ferry
Landing. Beside the pot was a
sign that read "Keep the Pot
Boiling." He was able to col-
lect enough donations to have
a Christmas dinner for the
poor people.
Today, the Red Kettle and
the friendly bell ringers are
seen all across America, rais-
ing funds to help the needy.
Let us all do our part to
"Keep the Pot Boiling," here
in Sumter County.
Persons interested in vol-
unteering for any of the
Salvation Army programs or
seeking further information
should contact Bill or Eleanor
Stewart at (352) 568-2284.
The Salvation Army is a
participating agency with
United Way of Lake and
Sumter counties, the Human
Care Network, Sumter
County Chamber of
Commerce and the Sumter
Ministerial Association.

Kelly leads South Sumter to 52-12 playoff win


The ultimate payoff would be

for the Raiders to win and reach

the state finals Dec. 2.


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

It just might be that the
South Sumter football brain
trust had this simple idea of
how to beat Keystone Heights.
Hand the ball to huge running
back Richard Kelly and let
him find the end zone.
Kelly scored four times
Friday as the Class 2A-fourth
ranked Raiders beat
Keystone Heights 52-12 in the


Class 2A-Region 2 semifinal
game Friday.
South Sumter won its first
playoff game and they are on
to a very challenging oppo-
nent this comingFriday.
"It is an exciting week," said
South Sumter coach Inman
Sherman. "This is why we do
what we do. We are excited.
We are proud of it."
Kelly impressed his head
coach. Kelly offers strength
and speed.
"Wasn't he something?"


said Sherman. "He
might have played
his best team. We're
really proud of him.
"He is 6-foot and
240 pounds. He has
bench pressed 360
pounds. He is very
fast. It was a total
team effort.
Everybody played
exceptionally hard.
We were able to win a
big game in the play- Richa
offs."
The Raiders (10-1) inch
closer to the Class 2A state
title with the victory.
This week, they travel to
Jacksonville Bolles High
School. Bolles (11-0) is ranked
first in the state and the game


ird Kelly


will be at 7:30 p.m.
Friday.
Kelly scored on
runs of 59, three,
two and four yards.
He ran over many
Keystone Heights
defenders in his
quest for paydirt.
Kelly has Alabama,
Florida State and
the University of
Florida looking at it
and that is not sur-


prising.
Unfortunately, South
Sumter linebacker AJ. Rice
suffered a leg injury during
the first quarter. He was taken
to the Leesburg Regional
Medical Center. He broke his
leg Friday.


Sherman said he had suc-
cessful surgery Saturday.
"He will be able to make 100
percent recovery but he won't
play any more football for us
this year," said Sherman.
There is no underestimat-
ing the strength of the
Raiders' next opponent.
"Bolles is still one of the
best programs in the United
States," said Sherman.
"There are no weaknesses.
They do everything extremely
well. We beat them 38-35 last
year."
Bolles often measures suc-
cess in terms of how many
NCAA Division I scholarships
they can get for their players.
"We have to go there with
the mental focus that we can


play them," the coach said.
"We have to get everybody's
emotions under control. We
are going to have to be hard-
headed and hard-nosed. We
have to have a group of kids
who are playmakers. We can't
make mistakes against them.
We are playing against a pro-
gram that is nationally
ranked.
"There is no one program in
the United States that is bet-
ter than Bolles." The Bolles-
South Sumter game is the
regional finals. South Sumter
would play Madison or
Pensacola Catholic on Nov. 24
if the Raiders beat Bolles.
The ultimate payoff would
be for the Raiders to win and
reach the state finals Dec. 2.

Wildwood 51-6


Wildwood finished the season

LARRY BUGG

No one wants to end a foot-
ball season this way.
Unfortunately, Wildwood
High's playoff run lasted just
one game. Clearwater Central
Catholic beat Wildwood 51-6
Friday in the Class 2B-Region
3 semifinals.
Clearwater Central Catholic
(74) moves on to the regional
final to face Sarasota Cardinal
Mooney. Cardinal Mooney
beat The Villages 33-0.
Wildwood was 4-0 in Class
2B-District 5 but finished the
season with a 4-7 overall
mark. Unfortunately, the
Wilddats had an early injury
to deal with against a talented
team.

helmet hit Mitchell in' the

The Marauders took a 35-6

Wildwood running back
Tory Davis made a 59-yard
run. That set up Kelvin
Jackson who later scored from

his ankle early in the game

Part five of trip to British Columbia: Marlin Watson's place


In the last article I wrote and Rain. When I asked Marlin

Folks, having been raised in a grand tour of Marlin's place. The
family that was in the construc-
tion business, I fully understand
what good craftsmanship and
hard labor is. With that in mind,
I will try and relate to you a bit of
the sheer magnitude of the job
that Marlin has successfully
undertaken over the years in
creating a small paradise in the
vast wilderness of some of the
most beautiful unspoiled terrain
left in North America.
Marlin's place, without doubt,
is the result of many thousands
of hours of hard, back-breaking
manual labor that he and his
parents before him have put in
while carving out a small ranch
where his parents settled on a
piece of land they received from
the government nearly a century
ago.
Marlin was raised in a hand-
made, small log cabin on the
homestead where he and his
family withstood many hard
times while carving out the
small ranch he and his two sons
have and love.
By the way, his two sons are
twins and are 17 years old and
both are already grown, well-
mannered men, with many skills
and abilities to do a man's job.
While working at the ranch, they
do exactly that on a daily basis
under Marlin's watchful tute-:
lage.
The twins are named Ridge Marlin Watson in the front yard


house he has is an engineering
feat in itself as well as all of the
barns, sheds, horse pens and
everything on the ranch, tor that
matter. It has been built one log
or plank at the time and the
craftsmanship is superb.
The logs for the house and
other buildings have all been cut
from trees in the woods close to
the ranch. They are all individu-
ally hand-fitted with unbeliev-
able tolerances and I can only
try and imagine the labor that
went into building all of the
structures on the ranch with-
out, I might add, the aid of heavy
equipment that we have avail-
able in the fast-moving world we
live in. It just goes to show you
that if a person really wants to
do something bad enough they
can get it done and all it takes


is real determination and
patience.
Marlin and his folks before
him have cleared up a pretty
good portion of their land and
have hay fields planted on most
of the open space that not only
raises hay for the horses; it can
be used by bush pilots to land in
an emergency
The fence that keeps the
string of horses Marlin has
enclosed is in itself something to
see. They don't use barbed wire
out there; they build their fence
one section at a time out of
peeled lodge pole pine tree
trunks with a circumference of
about six to eight inches. If I
have it right, it takes about seven
poles of what I would guess to be
about 12 to 14- feet long to make
each section, plus the A-frame


end that holds up and secures
the poles. Anyway, it is quite an
undertaking to build a fence in
this manner and Marlin and his
boys built 165 sections of this
type fence one summer. Folks,
that was a heap of back-breaking
work especially when you take
into consideration that they had
to cut each individual pole and
peel the bark off.
Speaking about Marlin's hors-
es, this past winter wolves got to
and killed eight of his prize hors-
es so you can be assured that
this situation is going to be taken
care of this winter. In fact, the
game folks out there will proba-
bly help Marlin try and reduce
the wolf population. Horses are
very valuable commodities for
ranchers and they cannot afford
for predators to devastate their


livestock.
The house that Marlin and the
boys live in sits right on the bank
of the Graham River- and as we
had breakfast, we had a beauti-
ful view of the river and sur-
rounding mountains.
Incidentally, Marlin can take his
spotting scope out into his front
yard and look at all kinds of wild
game from mountain sheep to
moose and grizzly bear while
having a cup of coffee. Around
dinnertime, we had to head back
down to Harold's place because
we did not want to ride back at
night. Besides, we wanted to see
the country we had ridden
though the previous night For
my part, I still had another sec-
tion of my south end that needed
another saddle sore.
To be continued.

Main Street Christmas Stroll

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
Oh the weather outside is balmy ... not exactly the
version you may remember; but for Floridians it's not
the typical Christmas carol.
But following their annual tradition in downtown
Leeburg, community leaders are heralding in the sea-
son, dropping the temperature and lighting up the
weekend.
Snow falling, Christmas lights, toy soldiers,
Dickens Carolers, snow sledding and more.
Holiday shops open and crowds on every street cor-
ner, it's all part of the Main Street Christmas Stroll.
The stroll will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on
Friday, Nov. 24.
Fun for the whole family, stores open for holiday
shopping and there'll be hayrides, a real snowy won-
derland, a petting zoo and Charles Dickens Carolers.
There'll even be a strolling jazz band and festive
foods.
That's also Venetian Gardens Light Up weekend.
The lighting ceremony will be held in Venetian
gardens at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 25.
The lights will be on nightly through Jan. 1.
Drive or walk through Lake County's largest holi-
day display featuring over 500,000 mini lights and
displays.


'The Grudge 2"
Running time: 95 minutes
MPAA rating PG-13
There's nothing really
scary about "The Grudge"
movies. They're not particu-
larly great films, either -
and yet, I do enjoy them
somewhat.
I think the reason is that
I'm always wondering when
and where that Creepy Kid
With the Big Eyes Who
Makes the Kitty-Cat Sounds
will pop up next. I really real-


ly really like the Creepy Kid.
The film stars Amber
Tamblyn as Aubrey, the sister
of Sarah Michelle Gellar's
character (the lead in the
first film, and who makes a
cameo in this sequel).
Aubrey is sent to Japan to
find out what happened to
her sister. It seems that after
the events of the first film,
Sarah Michelle Gellar's char-
acter was placed in the
looney bin of a Tokyo hospi-
tal.
Aubrey also meets a
Japanese journalist investi-
gating the mysterious events
surrounding the house
where Gellar lived.
It has been at the center of
several grisly murders -
and, of course, we the audi-
ence know that the house is
haunted by Creepy Kid and
his Croaking Mom.
What may confuse the


'I


audience is that "The Grudge
2" weaves three different
story lines and three dif-
ferent time frames.
Events are shown out of
sequence, so it's tough to
know what's going on until
you've seen the whole movie
and had a chance to take
everything in.
I think if director Takashi
Shimizu had done a better
job of cluing us in about
When Things Were
Happening, this movie
would've been better
received.
If you liked the first film,
then you'll definitely enjoy
the sequel.
If you haven't, "The Grudge
2" might be a little confusing.

Diabetes program Gangone earns prestigious award


planned locally,



pre-r-egistration set


The University of
Florida/Sumter County
Extension is now offering an
educational program.
The program is geared to
help adults with type 2 dia-
betes control their blood
sugar to feel better and
reduce risk of health compli-
cations.
The program will include
eight classes taught by a team
of qualified educators and
health professionals, and a
personal consultation with a
registered dietitian/certified
diabetes educator
Class topics will include
information on the types of
diabetes, standards of care,
medications, cardiovascular
disease risk, nutritional man-
agement, carbohydrate
counting, physical activity
and foot care.
Health assessments
(height, weight, and blood
pressure measurements) are


included.
The classes will start in
January; however, we must
start recruiting participants
now.
There is a $75 program fee,
which includes the educa-
tional classes, 90-minute
nutrition consultation, a free
blodd glucose monitor, pro-
gram materials and health
assessments. Class size is lim-
ited to the first 20 registrants.
We are now recruiting par-
ticipants for this program.
If you have been diagnosed
with type 2 diabetes, are at
least 21 years old, and are
interested in being a part of
this program, please call the
Sumter County Extension
office at (352) 793-2728 and
ask for Family and Consumer
Science Agent Martha
Maddox. Participation is by
pre-registration only.
Deadline for pre-registra-
tion is Dec. 7.


Library Services Manager Lucy B. Gangone was presented the
prestigious 2006 Emerson Greenaway Award


Sumter County's very own
Library Services Manager, Lucy
B. Gangone, was presented the
prestigious 2006 Emerson
Greenaway Award by her previ-
ous employer in New England.
The award is presented to
individuals who have had a
demonstrated impact on the
library field in the New England
region.
Gangone received the award
at NELAs annual banquet held
at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22, at
the Sheraton Burlington in
Burlington, Vt.
She was told by one colleague
that she was selected based on
her "enthusiastic embrace of
library services in New England
for most of her career."
A second library colleague,
who supported her nomination,
stated that Gangone "always
commits energy, enthusiasm, and
encouragement to the project at
hand. Coworkers have been able
to expect a collegial atmosphere;
newcomers, a warm welcome."
Established by the New
England Library Association
(NELA) in 1988, the award is
named for Emerson Greenaway,
an innovator in library organiza-
tion and practice in the 1940's
and 1950's.


Gangone was the champion of
NELLS (New England Library
Leadership Symposium), a
unique program within NELA
that develops and explores
"leadership potential of new
librarians, giving them the tools
that they need to build on that
potential and at the same time,
invigorate each state's library
organizations by introducing
new leaders on a regular basis.
Besides serving as an officer in
various state library associa-
tions, she has also served as past
NELA Membership Chair,
Treasurer, Conference Chair,
and President
Gangone has worked in
Connecticut, Massachusetts,
New Hampshire and now in
Florida for Sumter County
Library Services as library man-
ager
She is a graduate of
Connecticut College with a
Bachelor of Arts degree in
English and Music History, and
of Southern Connecticut State
University with a Master of
Science in Library and
Information Science.
She also holds a Certificate of
Librarianship from the
Massachusetts Board of Library
SCommissioners.


TI II INK SAVINGFOR








THINK AGAIN.
Some of the best plans in life are often the simplest ones,
especially when saving for retirement. For example, you can invest
a set amount of money on a monthly basis into an Edward Jones
IRA, This lets you:
* Take full advantage of contribution limits and potential tax benefits.
* Eliminate the worry about investing at the right time.
* Add potential growth and diversification to your portfolio.
* Keep your long- term financial goals in focus.

To learn why it makes sense for you to invest a set amount of
money into an Edward Jones IRA each month, call or visit
your local investment representative today.
Automatically investing each month does not ensure a profit and does not protect against
loss in declining markets. Such a plan requires 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.

SECO members
receive $1.1 million
in capital credits
Member/customers of Sumter
Electric Cooperative (SECO)
will receive a total of $1.1 mil-
lion in capital credits on their
November electric statements
this year. Over the last ten years
SECO has given back $12.4 mil-
lion to its customers in Lake,
Marion, Sumter, Citrus, Pasco,
Levy and Hernando counties.
Capital credits are the accu-
mulation of all prior year's rev-
enue after the Co-op's expenses
have been paid. These credits
are applied on a pro-rata basis
to each SECO member's
account and represent a portion
of the total monies paid to the
Co-op by each customer
SECO CEO Jim Duncan said,
"Capital credits are but one
example of the many benefits
that come from being a member
of a democratic electric cooper-
ative. We normally apply these
credits to member accounts
each November and they seem
to enjoy getting this particular
credit around the holidays."
"As a not-for-profit, member-
owned utility, we continually
strive to keep the focus on what
is good for our members and the
communities in which they live.
Being able to share'capital cred-
its is unique to.the cooperative
business model," he concluded.

Whistles through the Rocks


Chapter Twelve
The Mud Cut Station
The unrelenting heat from
the sun beats down on my
head as I work in the end-
less rows of tobacco fields today.
Summer is in full swing. The
flowering dogwood and redbud
trees are offering their blossoms
for all to enjoy. The warm sum-
mer breeze is refreshing and
clean. There isn't a cloud in the
vast blue sky.
I notice that Daniel is growing
taller and both of us have gotten
stronger. I, in particular, have
grown stronger in many ways. I
know now how important it is
that I assume the responsibili-
ties that go along with being an
adult Many things have changed
and will continue to change for
my family in Burnt Chimney.
The coming of the railroads has
brought us into a new way of life,
and the old way of life has now


passed away never to return
again.
I can see changes in Dad as
well. He no longer seems to be
annoyed with Daniel and me as
we share our enthusiasm over
the railroad. As a matter of fact,
Dad is being very helpful to us
by giving us an understanding of
the history of the railroad and
the importance of it. More
importantly, Dad is being very
helpful to David. Although Dad
is grateful that David has a job
shoveling coal, he wants the best
for David. They have been work-
ing diligently on learning Morse
code and using the telegraph
machine. Dad also has been
encouraging as David waits for a
job opportunity
David has been going through
some changes as well. He is
more confident about himself.
He has a better attitude about
going to work and shoveling
coal.
This is most likely due to the
fact that he has learned another
skill and he feels that he will


probably not be shoveling coal
for the rest of his life. He is excit-
ed when he gets up every morn-
ing and yet anxious that another
day will go by and he will not
receive any news about a possi-
ble job opening.
For the most part, our family
situation is on an upswing. Since
the railroad made its way
through Rocky Mount, our fami-
ly has been able to sell wood to
the railroads, gather coal and
sell it in exchange for money,
and receive money through
David's job shoveling coal. We
still don't have an abundance of
resources; however, we are
beginning to recover from the
financial stress that was caused
by the war. Life is different now
with this new industrial revolu-
tion. Our family is learning to
accept it and perhaps even
embrace this new way of life.
Naturally, just when I think
that things are heading on an
even keel, the winds of change
begin to blow. Change can be a
frightening thing with its uncer-

tainty about the future. This
time, however, change is some-
thing that has been long await-
ed, and it comes from a most
unlikely source.
It is now the hottest part of the
day. I can see Dad in a distant
tobacco field waving to me. He is
letting me know that it is time
for Daniel and me to go inside
and get out of the hot sun. Mom
is preparing our lunch and she
doesn't like to be kept waiting.
Even though Daniel and I are
wearing straw hats, the heat con-
tinues to penetrate through
them. As we walk back to the


farmhouse, w
familiar sound

'e can near tne something different today. Most
d of a train as it days, there are no passengers
down the tracks. that depart from the train at the
ain makes its way Wirtz Station, except for my
ise on schedule brother David. However, today a
iesn't seem to care well-dressed gentleman walks
., snowing heavily casually onto the train depot
hottest day of the platform. Since Daniel and I are
ne job to do and walking in the opposite direc-
y other day, it will tion toward the house, we can't
oute and nothing ,get very good look at him. We
stop it. don't think much of it and con-
y enough,there is tinue on our way home.
Once inside, Daniel and I run
upstairs to splash some water on
our faces and to get cleaned up
for lunch. Both of us collapse on
top of our beds until Mom calls
us downstairs. It feels good to get
out of the bright sunlight. At
first, it is difficult tosee until our
eyes adjust to the dim light of
our bedroom. We are thankful to
be shaded by the rooftop, so that
we can cool down for awhile.
Daniel and I hear Mom as she
calls and quickly run down-
stairs. While we are eating, we
hear a knock at the front door.
"Who could that be at .this
time of day?" Mom asks.
"I don't know," Dad says as he
gets up from the table. "I wasn't
expecting anyone today."
Then Daniel blurts out that we
S- saw someone get off at the train
depot before we came inside. "I
wonder if that is who it is?" asks
Daniel.
"Well, hello, John," Dad says
4 P as he answers the door. "What a
surprise to see you. What brings
you way out here today?"
Daniel and I can't believe our
eyes. We had not seen John since
the day he rescued us from the
men who tried to steal our coal.
We are also surprised that Dad
seems to know John. Dad waves
his hand for John to come
inside.
"It has been a long time since
P 4 I've seen you boys," John looks
over at us and says. "I wanted to
drop by and say hello and see
how everyone is getting along
since I was in the area."
With a big smile on his face,
S Daniel says, "Oh, we're all just
fine now. My knee is much bet-
ter. Thanks for the bandage."
John looks at me and asks,
"How about you, Michael? How
have you been doing?"
"Much better these days," I
reply. "Did you know that the
night you dropped us off Daniel
and I got lost in a terrible snow-
N Stormm"
b o John looks around the house
and replies, "It looks like you
found your way home all right
Today is a far cry from a snow-
w- storm; it's a scorcher out there."
Dad invites John to sit down
and have something to eat We
W talk for a while and tell John
About all of the exciting things
that have happened to us since
we last saw him.
When we finish eating, John
looks over at Dad and says, "I
Understand that your boy is look-
ing for work as a dispatcher, is
S[art that true?"
Dad begins to tell John about

David practicing Morse code on
his telegraph machine and that
David has been unable to find
any work for several months.
"Well, I think I can help you
out," John explains. "I know of
an opening at the Mud Cut
Station. The job is his if he wants
it He will have to travel a little
bit
From Rocky Mount, he would
have to take the train past the
Melton and Redwood Stations in
order to get there. I know the
people who work at the Mud Cut
station, and they would take
good care of him."
Dad looks at John in disbelief.
"Would you really do that for
David?" Dad asks.
John looks back at Dad and
says, "Of course I would, but
you'll have to let me know as
soon as possible. I can't hold the
position for long."
Dad goes on to say that he will
talk to David this evening; how-
ever, he is sure that David will
take the job.
"Consider it done!" exclaims
John. "Have David report to the
Mud Cut Station first thing
Monday morning."
Daniel and I walk John back
to the train station before we go
back to work in the tobacco
fields.
"It was great to see John
again." Daniel says. "He saved
our lives."
I look down at Daniel into his
bright sparkling eyes and say,
"Now he is going to help David.
In a way, John is going to save
David's life as well."
We go back to work deep in the
rows of the tobacco fields and
wait for evening to come. We
can't wait to see David get off of
the train, unsuspecting that his
life is about to change forever.
That night at the supper table,
Dad breaks the good news to
David. David is filled with
excitement He is also a little
anxious about all of the changes
that he will soon undergo. He
knows that soon he will be leav-
ing his safe home with our fami-
ly and going out into the world
on his own.
I also know that things will
change for me as well. I will now
have to fill David's shoes.
I will have to be the adult that
Dad depends on for greater
responsibility. I am ready and
know that Daniel is ready to fill
my shoes as well.
On Monday morning, David
leaves for the Mud Cut Station.
He decided that he will not
move out of the house at first He
will take one change at a time,
the first being his new job.
While Dad, David, Daniel and
I wait for David's train to depart
for the Mud Cut Station, we can
hear the familiar sound of an
odd-looking vehicle as it rolls
down the tracks.

hold during election season


edge of a subject matter that a
bird dropped in my ear, barely
two hours ago. Honestly, good
folks, some of the biggest name
writers are seemingly addicted
to this form of putting-pen to
paper and just tossing it to the
wind.
Subsequently, at election
time, I went on the lam. So, I
attempt to stay within the
bounds of factual journalism.
Most columnists choose to
remain in the narcissistic
plane of opinion journalism.
After all, their opinion is far
more important than facts. At
times, I do offer my opinion, but
it is known to. all that it is
indeed my opinion.
I remember November 2005,
when a Medicare beneficiary
and columnist offered her


"opinion" of what the bench-
mark premium for Americans
would cost in the first year of
Part D insurance. As a factual
journalist, I only have to read
the law, and figure about what
the premium should cost the
government based upon the
very complicated structure put
forth by various offices, com-
mittees of both the executive
branch and the congressional
branch of government
Several notations: This jour-
nalist, as a writer, is far more
talented than I. But, by jumping
from opinion to fact, she soon
was lost, with a law that few
ever understood or for that
matter understand.
The "benchmark premium"
is extremely difficult to
explain, not only to the general


public, but also the Congress
that voted for this law. This is
not the time, place or column to
delve into benchmark premi-
ums and explanations.
Again, as a factual journalist,
I only need the ability to know
where to go to research. On the
other hand, an opinion journal-
ist only needs to go to the
periphery of their cranium.
Though, this sphere is as deep
as they can go, I, on the other
hand, must not only have to
understand, I must translate, so
that my readers may under-
stand.
If my translation is at fault,
then all has been for naught. If
the opinion journalist is at
fault, nothing is lost, primarily
because they didn't know or


understand the matter to begin
with. And, often they write
from their heart, soul, but sel-
dom from the subject matter of
the academia of thesis initiat-
ed.
Yes, my dear friend, they may
make it look prettier than I can,
but at the end of the day, you
will learn less than you may
have known the day before.
And, quite unfortunately, they
themselves are also just as con-
fused as they were on the pre-
vious morning.
The importance of my writ-
ing is translation and your
understanding.
What are they talking about?
What does it mean?
As opposed to "read what I
wrote, aren't I profound?"


Sumter Electric Cooperative communications honored with 10 awards


Sumter Electric Coopera-
tive (SECO) has been honored
with eight national awards
and two state awards for the
various printed communica-
tions pieces it produces and
offers to its members to help
them stay in touch with what
is happening at their electric


cooperative.
SECO serves nearly 55,000
member/customers in Lake
County, 50,000 in Marion
County, 35,000 in Sumter
County and over 15,000 in
Citrus County. It also has
member/owners in Pasco,
Levy and Hernando counties.


Four Magnum Opus Awards
were garnered by SECO in

Association, Costco and
Walgreen's. Four more nation-
al awards for SECO's commu-

Cooperative Communicators
Association and the co-op
took 2 Florida Print Awards,
