Wildwood to annex 8,000 acres shootingkills


As city doubles,

new homes are

on the horizon
AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The City of Wildwood is get-
ting ready to double in size -
again.
On Monday, the city com-
mission held a first reading of
an ordinance to annex 8,107
acres to the south and east of
the city. Commissioners are
expected to vote on the annex-
ation at their next regular
meeting on Dec. 11 at 7 p.m.
If and when the annexation
is complete, the city will have
quadrupled in size since 2003,
bringing its area to more than
16,000 acres or 25 square
miles.
That would make
Wildwood, in area, 3.5 times
the size of Inverness and
twice the size of Clermont.
The property to be annexed
extends south of County Road
470 and would take the
Wildwood city limits toward
Center Hill.
Plans for the 8,107 acres are
not clear; but, according to
city Growth Development
Coordinator Robert Smith,
the property is being annexed
with an agricultural land use
designation.
City documents list current
Owners of numerous parcels
that make up the more than
8.000 acres as B1ailey
Brothers, Inc. and Bexley
Brothers, Inc.
As the city continues to take
ini land, other housing proj-


ects in Wildwood are moving
through various stages of
development.
And, as the city prepares to
head into a new year, Smith
continues to meet with two
developers every day on aver-
age.
"There're a lot of people
that have expressed interest
in developing in the city,"
Smith said last week
And naturally, as more
housing developments pop
up, "you'll see a lot more com-
mercial."
Probably Wildwood's most
notable proposed housing
development so far, Wildwood
Springs, is being planned on
1,000 acres annexed into the
city earlier this year. Three
thousand homes are antici-
pated on the property south of
County Road 468.
"We only have six develop-
ers' agreements right now,
three of which are churches,"
Smith said, but there are
between 10 and 15 developers
who are "serious" about
building in Wildwood.
Three of these developers
are planning large communi-
ties.
The City of Wildwood has
completed several large
annexations and will likely
continue.
"We have probably about
150 applications (for annexa-
tion) on file right now" for
properties ranging in size
from one-half acre to thou-
sands of acres, Smith said.
However, some properties
are "so far away (from the city
limits) that we won't be able to
annex for 10 years."
Smith said even after con-
struction begins for some of
these housing developments,


the projects won't be complet-
ed overnight
"The large developments
are not going to build 750
homes in one month. A lot of
the projects' build out will
-take five to 10 years."
Many Wildwood residents
and those in the surrounding
area have supported the city's
continued growth, he said.
"The city could not do this
unless people have signed up
(to annex)... you have more of
a say in what's happening
around you" by being inside'
the city.
"They realize that this area
is changing."
Much of the appeal to annex
is access to city water, he said.
"What's driving this is the
utilities."
Wildwood has potential
well sites far enough away
from highly developed areas
and won't affect nearby lakes,
according to Smith.
"We're very confident
Swiftmud will give us water
permits."
Smith said with proper
planning, Wildwood will be
able to retain its character as
development continues.
"blou can do it wisely with
architectural design and stan-
dards and incorporating the
city's identities in those stan-
dards," along with a well-
designed open space require-
ment.
"We're drafting that."
Right now, Smith said
developers who already have
contracts with the city are in
the site plan approval
process.
"You'll see houses coming
up around the fourth quarter
of next year."


Sumter County Judge Tom Skidmore performed the swearing-in ceremony Tuesday afternoon
for newly elected county commissioners Doug Gilpin (second from left) and Garry Breeden
(far right). They're shown here with their wives Diane (far left) and Joyce (third from left).

the city is considering annexing (shaded in blue). On Monday,
the city commission held a first reading of an ordinance to
annex the property, 8,107 acres, to the south and east of the city.
Commissioners are expected to vote on the annexation at their
next regular meeting on Dec. 11.

Times Correspondent


The Sumter County
Commission on Tuesday
reorganized with the selec-
tion of board members from
districts in the Villages to
serve in two key positions.
The board unanimously
approved Commissioner
Michael Francis as board
chairman and picked
Commissioner Richard
Hoffman to serve as the
vice-chairman.
The only other experi-
enced member, Commis-
sioner Randy Mask, was
voted in as second vice-
chairman.
The reorganization is a
routine annual event and
this year came during the
first regular board meeting


for newly elected
Commissioners Garry
Breeden (District 4) and
Doug Gilpin (District 2).
Before the nomination
process, Mask said he was
agreeable to a possible
chair slot that Hoffman
asked him about two weeks
ago.
But on Tuesday, Hoffman
said the chairman should
have' experience including
that of previously chairing a
government body.
Only one person on the
board has that experience -
Francis, Hoffman said with
a motion for the nomina-
tion.
After a brief vote, Francis
was chairing the meeting.
Then Gilpin nominated
Hoffman for the vice-chair-

Webster man

BoB REICHMAN
Editor

It was only minutes into
Thanksgiving Day when a bul-
let ended the life of 20-year-
old Howard Lee Stewart.
The accidental shooting
happened outside Stewart's
residence at 850 N.W. Sixth
Street in Webster, sending
one bullet from a .38-caliber
handgun into his neck,
according to sheriff's Lt.
Bobby
B o b b y
Caruthers.
The shoot-
ing happened
while Stewart,
his sister
Patricia
Stewart and
B o b b y
Clemons Jr.,
also of Clemons
Webster, were
joking around, Caruthers
said.
All three had just arrived at
the Stewart home in Clemons'
1979 Pontiac Bonneville.
Clemons stayed in the car
while Patricia and Howard
went inside.
Howard was going to baby
sit Patricia's child for the
night, Caruthers said. Patricia
is Clemons' girlfriend.
Once the baby was inside
the home, the Stewarts
returned to Clemons' car,
Caruthers said.
That's when Stewart began
joking with Clemons and said
he was going to pull out a gun
from his pocket,according to
Caruthers. Clemons, also jok-
ing, pulled out a loaded hand-
gun from his jacket pocket
and pointed itin HoJward's


tim in the neck," he said.
Following the shooting,
Clemons attempted to pro-
vide aid to Howard and then
loaded him into the car to
take him to Leesburg

Spilled mercury results in


evacuation, clean-up at


Panasoffkee Elementary


CONTEST WINNERS


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Hundreds of tiny spilled
mercury beads caused a class-
room evacuation, shut down
an elementary school and cost
thousands of dollars in envi-
ronmental clean-up, but the
health dangers appear to be
minimal, according to school
officials.
Just before school was out
on Monday, Nov. 20, a fourth
grader at Lake Panasoffkee
Elementary School took a
small vial of mercury from her
book bag and put it on her flat-
top desk, where it spilled.
The mercury "beaded up
and fell onto the tile floor and
one big bead turned into sev-
eral hundred little. beads,"
said Sumter School Supt. Rick
Shirley. The incident hap-
pened at the end of the school
day, just minutes before buses
were slated to take students
home.
The student got the mercury
from a family friend who did-
n't realize the danger, accord-
ing to a health department
representative.
Shirley doesn't believe the
student did anything inten-
tionally wrong.
"It's just one of those terri-
ble things that happen occa-
sionally," he said. There didn't
seem to be any negative intent
on the part of the child or the
neighbor
The health department has
spent time sharing informa-
tion with the child's family
and the friend on how to clean
any mercury from the home
,and its dangers. They also
referred the family to their
own physician for evaluation.
Shirley said the dangers
from mercury are caused
from intense, long-term expo-
sure.
According to an information
sheet from the health depart-

man post That also was quick-
ly approved.
Hoffman followed that with
a nomination for Mask to the
second vice-chairman post.
After the votes, Francis
thanked his fellow board
members for their confidence
and said he would "try to do a
fair and just job." He also
asked staff and the board for
their suggestions and input.
He also added some state-
ments that he said were for
the "audience and the press."
"We are a board that repre-
sents the entire county,"
Francis said, adding that you
hear comments from the
board members about the
"south or the north.
"I intend to make the focus
of this board county-wide," he
said. "We'll sometimes say
'no', but it will be for fiscal or
legal reasons, not geographi-
cal."
He referred to the stormwa-
ter utility workshop that the
board had held Tuesday after-
noon as an example, noting
that there was a great deal of
discussion and a consensus.
"If we discuss issues thor-
oughly, I believe we'll often
come to a consensus," Francis
said.
In other business:
Commissioners unanimous-
ly approved an ordinance
which establishes a permit


ment, the most danger is when
temperatures rise above 80
degrees, turning liquid mer-
cury to vapor, which can then
be inhaled. If the spill is larg-
er than the amount of mercu-
ry found in a thermometer,
the sheet cites the spill as
large and urges those affected
to contact their physician for
evaluation.
Sumter School Assistant
Supt. Hannah Foster said
according to the Sumter
County Health Department,
the incident would have a
negligible impact and if any-
thing, the School Board was
pursuing things farther just to
make certain there is no
future danger.
The health department
notes their number one prior-
ity is the safety of residents.
But for anyone concerned
about it, she said they may
want to see their doctor, "To
allay your own fears."
During the day, the vial
apparently leaked mercury
through the book bag, infect-
ing other areas of the school.
Facilities Coordinator Jim
Allen said he received a nar-
rative of everywhere the stu-
dent had been on campus that
day. An environmental clean-
up team from Orlando tested
and cleaned those areas.
The school also contacted
the families of children who
were most likely to have had
contact with the student that
day.
Shirley said, the district has
an emergency contact system
and parents were notified,
with the option of keeping
their children home the fol-
lowing day. Of the 600 students
enrolled, 160 showed up for
school on Tuesday, the last
day before the Thanksgiving
holiday. Those students were
put in areas that weren't
affected by the mercury as the

process for businesses or indi-
viduals to exceed posted
weight limits on certain coun-
ty roads.
The ordinance authorizes
the county to obtain security -
by cash, surety bond, or letter
of credit for possible road
damage.
The action stemmed from a
company's plan to haul mate-
rial from a Lake County prop-
erty that was only accessible
by County Road 716.
A future public hearing will
actually set the vehicle weight
limits for that road. But the
issue won't end at that.
Breeden raised a concern


environmental team contin-
ued the cleaning process dur-
ing the day, according to
Allen.
The lunchroom was shut
down and lunches were sent
in from another school on
Tuesday, as the cleaning
process continued.
According to Shirley, a cou-
ple of things that really
worked in the district's favor
were the air conditioning sys-
tem and tile floor in the class-
room. The air unit was a sin-
gle-unit and not connected to
other rooms.
The rooms were tested and
two of the rooms needed to be
cleaned again, according to
Shirley and Allen. The second
cleaning was done on Friday
and they were still waiting for
the results this past Tuesday.
Allen arrived at about 2:30
p.m. and stayed throughout as
the mercury was vacuumed
from the school with special
equipment. He said they used
a special solution to neutral-
ize the metal.
When they cleaned two of
the rooms, they removed the
paper goods, put them in bags
and placed them outside
where they heated up to more
than 76 degrees. At the higher
temperatures, the mercury
begins to vaporize.
The team then put a device
into each bag with a 'sniffer'
or hose to determine if there
was mercury on the paper.
'And there was not," Allen
said.
The situation turned into an
exercise in procedure, Allen
said, also crediting staff for a
good job and explaining that
they isolated and reviewed
the situation and followed
protocol.
As for the cost of the envi-
ronmental team, Shirley said
they don't have a figure yet.

that farming or agricultural
operations weren't exempted
from the rule, something that
he said had been "historical-
ly" done in the past.
But County Attorney
Randall Thornton said the
rest of the existing weight
restriction ordinance had a
section that listed exemp-
tions.
Another ordinance would
be needed to change that sec-
tion.
Board members agreed
with Breeden's suggestion
and asked for Thornton to
bring back another ordinance
draft that they can consider
for a public hearing.

Regional Medical Center.
En route to the hospital,
Clemons turned back and
returned to the home to call
911.
When deputies arrived,
Patricia "ran up to the patrol
car screaming for help and
asking to call for an ambu-
lance," Caruthers said.
Inside the vehicle, a
woman, identified as
Elizabeth Clemons, was hold-


ing a piece of clothing
against Howard's wound.
Emergency medical per-
sonnel arrived and attempt-
ed first aid but Howard was
pronounced dead at 12:40
a.m., Caruthers said.
Clemons, 39, was arrested
for manslaughter and posses-
sion of a firearm by a convict-
ed felon. He was placed in
the Sumter County Detention
Center with bond set at
$20,000.
Clemons' felony charge
stems from a conviction for
sale and possession of crack
cocaine, Caruthers said.

Candidates prepare for upcoming city elections


" On Tuesday, Dec. 5, voters in
bushnell, Center Hill and
Coleman will be asked to
Choose their city representa-
ives.
Editor's note: Candidate
questionnaires were sent to
ach person running for a city
Suffice. Printed below are the
)Yesponses from those candi-
iates who returned the ques-
ionnaire.
BUSHNELL
' In Bushnell, three council
seats will be decided. The
winners will be elected to
serve four-year terms.
- For Council Seat 1, incum-
bent Mayor Joe P Strickland
*Jr. is being challenged by
Edgar Slate.
Slate is 68 years old, mar-
ried with four children, and
manages Dogwood Mobile
Home Park
SHe believes Bushnell needs
,.new approaches in our gov-
ernment, some out-of-the-box
thinking, so to speak. Folks
have told me that my experi-
fence as the manager of a large


mobile home park could offer
a more fair and practical
approach to city government.
"The principal reason I'm
seeking this office has to do
with our sewer system," Slate
wrote.
"People have asked me,
'Why don't we have the sewer
available? Will the system be
adequate to handle all of
Bushnell? What about han-
dling our expected growth?
What are our costs going to
be? How will providing for
users outside the city affect
my property taxation?' It
seems that there is little or no
information about all this
that's available to voters."
He believes on of the great-
est changes the city could
make would be to better
inform citizens about "inner
workings of their city govern-
ment" and make the city gov-
ernment "more open to the
public.
"I would like to do what is
necessary to encourage a
greater attendance at, and


attention to, our city council
meetings and a more thor-
ough publication of the work-
ings of the council."
In the race for Council Seat
3, incumbent Vice Mayor
Warren Maddox is being chal-
lenged by Anthony Key.
Maddox, who has served on
the city council since 1999, is a
59-year-old married retired
State of Florida employee.
He is seeking re-election "to
help guide to completion
Bushnell's doubling of its
wastewater treatment capaci-
ty to accommodate the City of
Webster and our city's expan-
sion along with the conclusion
of the siting, design and con-
struction of a new city hall."
He believes continued
expansion of city electric,
water, sewer and refuse col-
lection services is important
"to decrease our dependency
on property taxes as a major
source of city revenue.
"The City of Bushnell, in my
opinion, is moving forward in
the right direction and no


major changes are needed.
Our council, staff and manag-
er are doing a responsible job
meeting the challenges at
hand.
"Speaking as a lifelong resi-
dent of Bushnell, I promise, if
re-elected, to continue to rep-
resent Bushnell's best inter-
ests as my only interest."
In the race for Council Seat
5, incumbent Councilman
Dale Barnes is being chal-
lenged by William Durham.
CENTER HILL
In Center Hill, Cassie
Brown is challenging Jimmy
Smith for City Council Seat 5.
Brown, a married realtor with
one child and four grandchil-
dren, previously served on the
city council and served a two-
year term as mayor of Center
Hill. She believes the current
city council has "failed to lis-
ten to the citizens' outcry"
over the proposed mine and
cement plant. "What we need
is residential growth to pro-
vide housing for our children
who cannot find adequate


housing in Center Hill. which
is a healthy project. We do not
need a cement plant/rock
mine. Annexation is OK for
needed development and
growth, but this 1.400-acre
rock mine/cement plant is not
the answer."
Brown believes Center Hill
needs "a new council and
administration to carry out
the will of the people and not
personal wishes.
"After a successful court
challenge to stop the annexa-
tion of ... a 1400-acre rock
mine/cement plant, the coun-
cil still went against the will of
the people. Should I be elect-
ed to represent the people of
Center Hill, the people will

Help for seniors during


the cold months


Energy assistance is important
to all who receive it, but it is
critical for the elderly who are
more at risk for life-threatening ill-
ness or death if their home is too
cold in the winter.
Older adults are especially vulner-
able to hypothermia, or abnormally
low body temperature. The drop in
body temperature can be a result of
staying in a cold place for too long.
According to the National Institutes
of Health, hypothermia kills about
600 Americans every year, and half
of those are 65 years old or older.
As the body ages, its ability to
endure long periods of exposure to
cold is lowered.
Older people are at an increased
risk for hypothermia because cer-
tain illnesses, such as diabetes and
medicines, affect the body's
response to cold. Hypothermia
affects the brain, making the victim
unable to think clearly or move well.
Signs to look for that indicate
hypothermia include,, confusion,
drowsiness, slowed or slurred
speech, shivering or -tiffness in the
arms and legs, weak pulse or low
blood pressure, or poor control over
body movements or slow reactions. If
you suspect that someone is suffer-
ing from the cold and you have a


thermometer available, take the
temperature and if it's 96 degrees or
lower, contact 9-1-1 for emergency
help.
To prevent hypothermia, in addi-
tion to dressing appropriately for the
outdoor climate, older adults must
make sure their home is warm.
Energy assistance is available for
those 60 and older who are having
problems keeping their home warm.
The Emergency Home Energy
Assistance for the Elderly
(EHEAEP) program is available for
people, 60 years of age and older,
who met income guidelines and are
experiencing an energy-related cri-
. sis.
A crisis maybe an impending cut-
off of electricity, lack of fuel, wood,
blankets and heating unit, and bro-
ken heating system.
Individuals interested in applying
for EHEAEP assistance should con-
tact the Elder Helpline at 1-800-96
Elder or 1-800-963-5337.
The Elder Helpline is available
Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Voice mail is available for after
hour calls
For more information on
hypothermia, please contact the
National Institutes of Health at

A time
for change
Tuesday, Nov. 7 marked the start of a
new and better era for America.
American voters made it clear that
they want change and new leadership
that will move the nation in a dramati-
cally different direction.
This election was clearly a victory for
democracy A congress that had become
unaccountable to its people.... was
defeated.
And of course kudos to Nancy Pelosi,
the first woman speaker of the House ...
You go girl!
All of us here in The Villages who
worked hard on this election cannot let
the local losses defeat us.
More people went to the polls than
ever before: we met all the candidates
and knew all the issues and cast our vote
with conviction for those we believed in.
I am certain beyond a shadow of a doubt,
that here in our overwhelmingly
Republican Village, we made the
Republicans sit up and take notice.
So were do we go from here on the
national level?
One of our highest priorities will be to
find a way to work with the present
administration. We need to change our
course in Iraq and end this continuing
nightmare with our foreign policy We
need to again earn the respect and admi-
ration we once had throughout the
world.
Here at home, one of our first orders of
business will be to give working families
in America the raise they deserve by
increasing the minimum wage.
Sadly, the Republican-controlled
Congress blocked every attempt that was
made by Democrats to raise the mini-
mum wage in recent years, even though
they voted to increase their own salaries.
It is time to fix our ailing education
system.
It is time to provide health care for
every American.
It is time to change Medicare part D
and end the notorious "donut hole" that
is trapping millions of us seniors in
excessive drug costs.


We will have to pass a tax reform bill
that will give relief to the middle class
and reverse the outlandish tax breaks
the Bush administration has bestowed
upon the rich.
That sure is a tall order, but one that
must be tackled, and one that we must
succeed in accomplishing.
We need to address the loopholes in
campaign financing laws that give huge
corporations and their lobbyists undue
influence upon the legislative process.
As an example, Doug Gilpin, Hugh
Gibson and Garry Breeden received
over one quarter of a million dollars: an
absurd amount of money to have been
collected for candidates in a county the
size of Sumter!
We have a lot of work ahead of us.
SueMichalson
The Villages
Trade
imbalance
I suggest a tax tariff, if you may, on
all goods and services that are provid-
ed by jobs that have been "out-
sourced."
This monetary amount could be
equivalent to the amount of Social
Security earnings and taxes that
would have been provided by the now
non-employed American workers.
This would include such products,
for example, as those made in Mexico,
and then implanted into U.S. assem-
bly points of automobiles, etc.
Consideration should be given that
this is not proposed to be in any way
interfering with the Fair Trade Act.
Yes, this will result in a higher
acquisition cost for the American con-
suming public government.
The advantage would be that this
cost would be spread out over all con-
sumers.
Additionally, I would comment that
the American worker should not be
forced to compete with slave labor.
Please, let's not talk this to death,
let's get on this catastrophic SS/Tax
Imbalance ASAP

SCARC offers
thanks
SCARC, Inc. was the beneficiary
of two wonderful Thanksgiving
"gifts" that illustrate the level of
community support that maintains
the agency's ability to enrich the
lives of the people it serves. Not
only did these two events "nourish"
our bodies and our bank account,
but they also nourished our spirit
giving us new hope for the future.
On Monday, November 20, the St.
Catherine United Methodist
Church invited its sister churches
in Bushnell, Linden, Sumterville
and Webster to join in a
Thanksgiving Week Community
Church Service to recognize and
support the service to the commu-
nity provided by SCARC, Inc. Grant
Grogan, a member of the SCARC,
Inc. Board of Directors and a par-
ticipant in its programs, spoke to
the gathering offering his view of
the organization from "first-hand"
experience.
Approximately 90 people attend-
ed the event in the historic church
and generously donated $610 to
SCARC, Inc. Beautiful music was
presented by Mrs. Bridget Smith at
the piano and Mr. Bernard Dew at
the county's only pipe organ.
Inspiring messages were given by
laypersons at each participating
church as well as the Rev. Haig
Medzarentz from St. Catherine
Methodist and the Rev. Debi
Jenson from Bushnell Methodist. It
was truly a joyful and uplifting
experience.
Then on Wednesday, November
22, the Bushnell Assembly of God
Church treated SCARC, Inc. partic-
ipants, staff and board members to
its 12th annual pre-Thanksgiving
feast turkey and dressing with all
the trimmings all prepared by the
willing hands of the church mem-
bers and coordinated by Mrs. Janis
Harrison. A wonderful musical pro-
gram was presented by Ms. Pam
Morehead of Lake Panasoffkee.
Such a meal with entertainment
would have cost the agency easily
$700+ had the Church not so gra-
ciously donated it.
On behalf of everyone associated


with SCARC, Inc., many, many
thanks to the congregations and
leaderships of these churches who
supported these two events truly
demonstrating the spirit of the
Thanksgiving holiday.
Marsha Woodard Perkins
Executive Director
To residents
of The Villages
Why did you decide to select
Sumter County as the place to
spend your retirement years? It
must have been because you
thought it was a pretty nice place to
live nice enough to invest your
retirement money in tiny lots and
modest homes at premium prices.
You were right. Those of us who
are natives and long-time residents
think it's a "great place to live, work
and play." That's been our advertis-
ing motto for many years and with
your help, we can all continue to
enjoy it; but let me emphasize we
will need your help.
Of course because of sheer num-
bers and a developer with big
bucks to spend on the projects he
wants to see implemented, you will
be able to determine Sumter's
future. You now have four of our
five county commissioners and I
predict you'll have all five in anoth-
er two years, so our future and
yours rests on your shoulders.
Some of you were also promised
"free" amenities and didn't realize
until you were settled in that you
are paying dearly for those freebies
through your development districts
controlled by the developer. Some
of you now recognize that you not
the developer should be the ones
to determine what happens in your
district Support those who are now
working for the right to make the
decisions that affect you, not the
purse strings of the developer.
One of the first actions that you
will see the new county commis-
sioners take will be to try to change
our form of county government
from a commission to a charter-
type government obviously pro-
moted by the developer to create
his own little dictatorship. A major-
ity of the current board of commis-
sioners is inexperienced in county


government.
With a charter form of govern-
ment, you along with the rest of us,
will lose our rights to vote for othdr
county officials and school boardi-
they will all be appointed by the
inexperienced people running the
county government They will also
be able to largely dictate what the
cities can and can't do and they'll
control all of the financial deci-
sions.
Become educated. We will have
the right to vote on the change, so
please do what is right for you and
for all of Sumter County.
Why am I getting so excited about
something that hasn't yet hap-
pened? I predict we won't have
long to wait. In this case, the one
thing that could make me happy is
to be wrong.

Special to the Times

s my friend Tara and I
sat in a Thai restaurant,
the irony was not lost on
either of us.
Tara heads the mercy min-
istry at our church and her
"baby" is the Harvest program
that provides food for those in
need. We met to talk about feed-
ing the hungry as we stuffed
ourselves with pad thai noo-
dles.
Recently, the paper I write
for ran a series of stories for a
project we called Scant
Harvest about the big problem
of hunger in our community
We, the well-fed, writing
about who? I'm speaking for
myself here, but I don't know
any hungry people personally.
That bothers me, and that's one
of the things Tara and I talked
about
When she first took this job
she thought of the poor much
like I still do as projects.
Let's give them our cast off cans
of beets and green beans so we.
can feel good about ourselves.
I hate thinking like that, but
the more I hang with Tara the
more I feel my heart changing.
She is moving toward loving
and valuing them as people, not
projects, which is what we're
supposed to do. They're not
supposed to be "the poor," but
Joe and Lisa and Mrs. Appleton
and Jane who sings like
Whitney Houston.

The Rev. Thomas Beaverson


question: By giving people
food, does that really help
them?
On the one hand, some peo-
ple have nothing to eat, and not
the way you and I open the
fridge and stare at the jars and
containers and pans of leftover
lasagna and lament, "There's
nothing to eat!" I'm talking
about those whose stomachs
hurt, who open the fridge and
stare at a bare light bulb and
nothing else and have no idea
what to do to quiet the cries of
their hungry children in the
next room.
That's hunger. That's nothing
to eat.
I said to Tara, "How can we
not feed people?" She agreed.
We must But there's another
side to it. Does giving bags of
food to the same people week
after week create a dependen-
cy on our charity? With each
handout, do we perpetuate the
problem? Do we harm the peo-
ple we're trying to help? Do
they lose pieces of themselves,
of their sense of self-worth and
self-reliance with each bag of
groceries?
But they're hungry.. -
Tara told me about her new
hero, Shane Claiborne, who has
abandoned himself to identify-
ing and living with and loving
the poor and hungry in a com-
munity in Philadelphia called
the Simple Way. Like a com-
mune, everyone shares with
everyone else. Frankly, I think
it's weird, but there's some-
thing inside of Tara that is
drawn to that kind of wild living

- living wildly for the good of
others and the glory of God.
In Claiborne's book, "The
Irresistible Revolution," he
gives away all the royalties
earned from the sale of it! he
says, "Writing a check makes us
feel good and can fool us into
thinking that we have loved the
poor. But seeing the squat hous-
es and tent cities and hungry
children will transform our
lives. Then we will be stirred to
imagine the economics of
rebirth and to hunger for the
end of poverty."
I want to end poverty and
hunger and homelessness, and
I asked Tara what I could do.
She suggested I buy a turkey for
a Harvest family for
Thanksgiving. OK, I did that
Now what?
Claiborne has a different,
deeper answer. Jesus said the
poor and hungry will always be
with us, among us, in our midst.
Claiborne says they will cease
being "the poor" when they
become our friends.
He says that when we "fall in
love with people across class
lines," sharing comes naturally.
We begin to love them as we
love ourselves, as Jesus said we
must. Poverty and hunger pri-
marily result from a breakdown
in relationships.
That sounds too simplistic
and pie-in-the-sky utopian and
I can't imagine how that will
work or even if it's possible. It
would mean changing people's
hearts it would mean chang-
ing my heart.

Celebration set in 'Scottish castle'


Wish you could step back in
time and dine with a king?
Or would you like to laugh
with the royal court as jesters
entertain and musicians
keep the beat and celebrate
the Savior's birth in the royal
castle, among friends from
long ago?
Then join King Merel the
Hammer as he hosts his holi-
day feast with family and
friends a Madrigal Dinner,
where good humor will reign.
At times called the Duke of
Pana-Vista, lord of the outlet,
Earl of the turtle back, Count
of the catfish and protector of
the fisheries, the Hammer is
also known as "Gentle for his
stocks," for they are lined
with fur.
Sit among royalty and be
wary of the stocks, as you
feast and make merry in cel-
ebration.
Set for Saturday, Dec. 16 at
the Lake Panasoffkee United
Methodist Church, seating
begins at 5:15 p.m. as the
chamberlain announces each
guest and the fun is set to
begin at 6 p.m. as the Scottish
Hammer arrives.
The Hammer and his
future bride, Lady Alia, will
hold court and host dinner.


With a few laughs and
shenanigans and even a
promising message or two,
the event includes dinner -
or not. Guests can purchase
full meal tickets or seating-
only tickets in the peasant
section.
Bob Clark, a master musi-
cian and coordinator of the
event, said the group has
done a number of similar
presentations in earlier
years and this would be '"A
different way of presenting
the Christmas story," he said,
adding that while there's a
Madrigal dinner in Leesburg
and other nearby areas,
there's none in Lake
Panasoffkee.
"And the music is so uplift-
ing," he said. While some of
the songs are serious and cel-
ebratory, others were created
simply for fun.
"We're trying to recreate
the concept of what it would
be like to be in a Scottish cas-
tle back in the early days."
He said they wanted to give
their holiday presentation a
"little flavor" which will
allow guests to return to an
early era of Christianity.
And the event has some
authenticity, according to


Clark, who notes they'll be
using instruments from that
early period, such as the kel-
horn and renaissance
recorders. The instruments
are used regularly in their
church services at Lake
Panasoffkee.
There's even authenticity
in the roots several of the
cast members are descen-
dants of real Scots, he added.
Dinner, for those interest-
ed, will include a roast beef
entrde, vegetables, salad,
dessert and drink. Tickets
range from $5 or $10 for chil-
dren to $10 or $20 for adults,
unless guests would rather
skip dinner and play simple
peasants at $5 per person.
While it's by no means
required, all guests are urged
to dress in period costume
for fun.
And then there's something
for absolutely everyone!
Following the dinner,
there's a free holiday concert
in the sanctuary, hosted by
the king and his lady, and
everyone's invited!
There'll be images of the
Nativity and songs to tell it
all, so for more information
or tickets, call the church at
793-3438.

SUMTER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2006, PAGE 9



Lake Panasoffkee Restoration Council releases progress report


Efforts to restore Lake
Panasoffkee are progressing
well as almost half of the
1,977-acre dredging portion
of the Lake Panasoffkee
Restoration Council's four-
step, multimillion-dollar
restoration plan is complete.
According to the Lake
Panasoffkee Restoration
Council's annual report,
which was recently accepted
by the Southwest Florida


Management District and
will be submitted to the
Legislature, approximately
956 acres have been dredged.
The restoration plan,
which is being managed by
the District, involves dredg-
ing approximately 8.4 million
cubic yards of sediment from
the lake, which will improve
fish habitat, restore the his-
toric lake shoreline and
improve navigation. The


project will also restore
approximately 920 acres of
open-water habitat that has
been lost to the encroach-
ment of dense emergent veg-
etation since the 1940s.
Lake Panasoffkee is desig-
nated as an Outstanding
Florida Water by the Florida
Department of Environ-men-
tal Protection, and is one of
the District's Surface Water
Improvement and Manage-


ment (SWIM) priority water
bodies.
The dredging was broken
up into three steps.
Approximately 25 acres were
restored in Step 1, the
Coleman Landing Pilot
Dredging Project Step 1 was
completed in December
2000.
Step 2, also referred to as
dredging to hard bottom,
focused on dredging the


western shoreline while Step
3 focused on the eastern side
of the lake.
So far, contractors have
completed dredging 218
acres along the western
shoreline and 713 acres on
the eastern side of the lake.
The material that is
dredged from the lake is
being deposited at a spoil site
off County Road 482 South,
immediately west of


Interstate 75.
The dredging is expected
to continue through January
2008.
"In four years, when all is
said and done, approximate-
ly 1,977 acres of lake area will
have been restored or
enhanced in connection with
the full-scale in-lake restora-
tion effort," said District
Operations Director Mike
Holtkamp.


SECO and its members


lend a human touch


Sumter Electric Cooperative
(SECO) officials said today that
thousands of SECO members
are helping to look out for
those less fortunate.
In late 1997 the Co-op creat-
ed the SECO Angel Fund and
its major funding component
the Pennies from Heaven pro-
gram. The idea was to be able
to help families that had been
hit hard by a serious illness or
death, families where the
breadwinners lost their jobs
through no fault of their own,
families who lost everything
when their homes burned to
the ground and other serious
scenarios.
1 The Pennies from Heaven
program enables SECO mem-
bers to round up their electric
Iill to the next highest dollar.
As an example, if a member's
ill were $83.65 it would be
rounded up to $84.00 and the
Ixtra thirty-five pennies would
ge placed in the SECO Angel
Fund to assist those in dire
need.
i SECO Director of Public
Affairs Barry Bowman said,
'iThe old adage 'a penny saved,
is a penny earned' is certainly
true. So is the new adage 'a
lenny donated, is a penny that
changes lives' especially when
thousands of public-spirited
SECO members are joining
together to combine their Abe
Lincolns. Since the program
began, over a half a million dol-
lars have been given to those
less fortunate in our service
territory. Now that's Penny
Power!"
He cited a few examples
from the 2006 Angel Fund files:
A horrific house fire in


Marion County destroyed the
home of a single mother and
killed her two small children.
The mother was also injured
and was left in desperate cir-
cumstances. The Angel Fund
stepped in and provided much
needed assistance.
An elderly lady in Citrus
County trying to survive on
Social Security found that her
24-year-old air conditioner was
malfunctioning and driving
her electric costs way up. The
Angel Fund helped her get her
bills under control and
enabled her to deal with the
A/C problem.
A Sumter County member
was in a Miami hospital getting
treated for kidney failure. He
had previously received a liver
transplant at this facility prior
to moving here. While receiv-
ing dialysis he also suffered a
heart attack. The spouse, was
having a terrible time dealing
with travel costs back and forth
to the hospital, medical costs
and other bills piling up.
SECO's member angels helped
her through a very difficult
time.
Battling breast cancer and
trying to live on a fixed income,
a Lake County member found
that her bills were overwhelm-
ing her. The Angel Fund inter-
ceded and lent some relief.
SECO CEO Jim Duncan said,
"The Angel Fund and the
Pennies from Heaven program
have brought comfort to thou-
sands of SECO members who
have found themselves in diffi-
cult circumstances. SECO's
members should be proud that
they are making a difference in
the human condition here in
Central Florida."


The Sumter County Queens Court had a busy year attending
numerous events in and outside of Sumter County. Following
their crowning, during the Sumter County Fair in March, the
court has participated in a number of events and activities.
Members of the court are: Little Miss Sumter County Brisyn
Strickland: Sumter County Princess Courtney Terry: Jr. Miss
Sumter County- Sarah Durham; Teen Sumter County Kirsten
Coleman and Miss Sumter County- Laci Wells. Most recently, the
girls attended and performed at the Bushnell Fall Festival.
Pictured are members of the court performing at the Bushnell
Fall Festival, attending the Dixie Stampede in Orlando and the
Relay for Life in April. For information about having the Queens
Court attend local functions or events contact Cindy White at

Allen and Diana Mullen
have a farm in Bushnell, but
they're not growing peppers
or melons or other vegeta-
bles.
The Mullens are growing
Florida Christmas trees,
offering the community a
place to cut down their very
own tree for the holidays.
And it's any tree for $20.
The Mullens spent years
farming dairy in Sandy
Creek, N.Y, before selling
out to a tree nursery. That's
when Mullen went to work
for the new owners and
learned tree farming.
There he was managing a
farm of between 300,000 and
400.000 trees. Here in
Florida, the Mullens are


growing about 600 trees. It's a 'a
space just under a half an
acre.
Mullen started the lot
about six years ago and got
his first crop two years later.
He replants right next to
the stump of where an origi-
nal tree was cut and spends
about two hours a day prun-
ing, four times a year. He can
get up to 90 trees done in one
day.
They open for business the
day after Thanksgiving each
year and he enjoys watching
the kids help pick out the
family tree.
The trees are sand pines
and they only grow between
Tampa and North Florida.
The farm is off County
Road 622, from County Road
575. west of Bushnell.

Rezoning & Conditional Use Permit For Proposed 1,250-


Acre Limerock Mine & Cement Plant



The 1,250-acre limerock mine and cement plant is proposed to be located between CR 478 and 469 in Center Hill, with mining"
being conducted on the western portion of the property. Two driveways to the plant are proposed from CR 469. The truck traffic'
associated with the proposed mining operation is expected to exceed 750 trips per day, and is projected to almost double existingI
traffic on CR 469. The mine is anticipated to operate from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., 7 days a week, and would involve blasting at;
times. The cement plant is anticipated to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The mining operation is projected to have a life:
span of approximately 70 years. Structures on site will range between 100 to 300 feet in height, and will be lit at night. Fuels'.
expected to be used in on-site processing will include coal, petroleum coke, and whole or chipped tires. If approved, the plant
would be a major source of hazardous air pollutants, including mercury and dioxin.


Area residents, business owners, and surrounding property owners are encouraged to attend the final public hearing on December
4,2006, to express their views to the Center Hill City Council concerning the proposed 1,250-acre limerock mine and cement plant,
and the future direction of their community.

North Sumter Intermediate School celebrates Thanksgiving


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Nine- and 10-year-olds at
-orth Sumter Intermediate
school (NSI) began their
hanksgiving celebrations
earlyy this year.
On Nov. 21, the last school
ay before Thanksgiving,
urth grade classes enjoyed
e NSI Fall Festival- out-
oor games, lessons on the
history of the holiday, a spe-
lal meal and a movie.
And students "love it,"
according to fourth grade
teacher Kimberly Belcher,
j ho organized the event.
q Lead i ng up to the fest are a
ew weeks of learning about
uch things as history and
customs of American Indian
ribes,. namely those from
'lorida
S"For two to three weeks, it's
ied into their reading, social
studies and math ... they've
Really been looking forward
fto it for a while now."
, "


The event started off with
reading and songs, and even-
tually brought students out-
side for numerous games and
foot races.
"They (the games) were
fun," said 9-year-old Kelsi
Johnson. "Instead of being in
a room, having to do work."
Some students were eager
to share what they'd learned
so far.
"Indians share a lot; they
trade," said 10-year-old
Talayko Zerniak. The stu-
dents were given an opportu-
nity to barter and trade items
they made, including "rain-
makers" and drums.
Charlie Matthews, 10, said
the best part was being able
to have a good day to spend
time with family and friends.
Numerous parents volun-
teered to supervise the
games, brought food and vis-
ited with their children.
Belcher said this is the
third year the school has
sponsored the event.

Last-minute


Holidays are a festive
time to enjoy listening
to your favorite season-
al music, baking or eating your
favorite holiday goodie. getting
together with fami-
ly and friends to
enjoy catching up,
and decorating
your home or
enjoying the deco-
rations others have
put up. Oh yes, we .
can not forget about
making our shop-
ping list and hitting
the road to those
crowded malls for
that special gift for MAR
each person on
your list. Not every- MAD
one loves to shop
and even the best
shoppers run into the problem
of having someone on their list
that they are not quite sure
what to buy them. On the other
hand, some of us just were not
born to shop and hate those
crowded malls. In this article
you will find a number of last-
minute gift ideas that are sure
to please family and friends
and you won't have to fight the
crowds of shoppers to pur-
chase them.
A gift from the post office
would be a good idea for that
individual who loves to write
letters. Send a distant friend or
relative a book of stamps, bun-
dle of pre stamped envelopes
or post cards. Or give a collec-
tion of decorative stamps
issued by the post office.
Homemade gifts made with
love are always a good idea.
Give a cake, bread, cookies, or
a box of candy that you have
made. You can include the
recipe so that the recipient can
continue to enjoy the gift all
year Other gifts might be those
that you make especially for
the recipient such as a pillow,


SFree
Hearing Aid Repairs
all mahes and models I

Battery 'ale

I .. L,,Tl ; ,,. li


scarf, gloves, hat rack. bird-
house or a basket of wonderful
herbal products.
Magazine or newspaper sub-
scriptions are always a winner.
You can order a sub-
scription in the
name of the person
on your list. On
Christmas Day you
can give the individ-
-' ual a copy of the lat-
est issue, along with
a card that tells
when their subscrip-
tion begins. Some
companies will send
the recipient and
nice gift card or if
THA you request it can be
DOX sent to you to pres-
I ent in a wrapped gift
box.
Give a money gift but do
something more creative than
just writing a check. Fill a see
through container or a clear
glass piggy bank with shiney
half dollar coins or make a
money tree as your gift.
Tickets are a great gift
because this is something
someone might love to do but
won't buy the ticket for them-
selves. Give two tickets to a
special event such as a ball-
game, concert, movie, play,
dinner theater or sports event.
You could also consider a tick-
et to one of the theme parks in
Florida for the day or even a


't ideas

yearly pass.
If the person on your list is a
handyman, a gift from the
hardware store would be the
perfect gift. Put together a set
of nails, screws, nuts and bolfs
in see-through storage contain-
ers. Add to the basket a ham-
mer, screwdriver, saw or vari-
ety of other tools the individ-
ual could use.
For the gardener on your list
you could put together a gar-
dening basket filled with a
variety of gardening tools, pot-
ting soil, seeds or potted
plants, gloves, pots or contain-
ers to plant in or place trans-
plants and insect repellent.
Depending on the amount of
money you want to spend and
the size of the gift you could
purchase a wheelbarrow and
place your items in it
Now that you have several
different last-minute gift idea, -
I'm sure you can think of sev-
eral more that would be per-
fect for someone special oh
your holiday list. May you and
your family have a wonderftil
holiday season.

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

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

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

Outdoos wih ADAMS


Making the trip to British Columbia Falls.


The only other waterfall that is higher is the

famous honeymoon Mecca Niagara Falls

that borders the U.S. and Canada


I was sure dreading the
long horseback ride down
to Harold's place through
some 30 miles of
rough country
mainly due to the
big saddle sore I
had developed on
the previous mid-
night ride up to
Marlin Watson's
Ranch.
However, it was
the only way back
down to Harold's
:other than walking
:and I for sure did JAI
-not want a dose of ADA
that pleasure espe-
cially since, as an
American citizen, I was for-
bidden to have any type of
firearm in my possession and
every step of the trip was
through grizzly and wolf terri-
tory.
Anyhow, thankfully as it
turned out, I was not near as.
sore as I expected to be once
I got back in the saddle and
started on the trip back down
which followed a trail adja-
cent to the Graham River for
the most part.
The woods along the trails
with their unspoiled natural
beauty and the fast flowing
river was something to
behold. None of us were in
any hurry whatsoever so for
my part I just took in the
sights. Before too long, my
agony seemed to just go away.
I can understand why the
horses would sometimes get a
little antsy on the dark night
ride the night before. I got the
chance to see the rugged ter-
rain in broad daylight that we
had traveled through the pre-
vious night.
In the blackness of the
night, we could not see where
the horses were stepping.
During the daylight, it was
evident we had often been on
a very narrow and perilous
trail passing through musk
keg country which is the
equivalent to our wet marsh-
es here in Florida with the
exception that there were
fallen down tree logs all along
the trail that the horses had to
either step or jump over or

n


break their way through. With
the daylight, we could see a
lot of bear tracks all along the
trail and I am sure
the horses were
picking up these
smells and they
knew there were
bear in the vicinity.
About half way
back down to
Harold's, I started
to hear a distant
rumble that sound-
ed a lot like thun-
der. As it turned
out, we were near-
ing Christina Falls,
_MS which is the second
highest waterfall in
all of Canada. The only other
waterfall that is higher is the
famous honeymoon Mecca
Niagara Falls that borders
the U.S. and Canada up at the
northeastern part of the
United States.
As mentioned before, there
is no vehicle traffic to the falls
so the falls have not suffered
the manmade pollution and
litter problems that the
tourist industry invariably
brings. The falls are a part of
the Graham River. When we
approached the falls and tied
off the horses, we walked
down for an up close look
Folks, I have jumped out of
a bunch of airplanes while in
the Army and have hunted in
some high and rugged moun-
tains over a lot of the west but
these waterfalls and the deep
canyon they plummeted
down into gave me a real for
sure case of the spooks and
heebie-jeebies. I just could
not make myself get any-
where near the edge of the
sheer cliffs.
Christina Falls thunders
down over a cliff into a deep
hole that I reckon has been
created over thousands of
years. Harold said that "the
falls were more than 200-feet
high" and I don't doubt his
summation one bit. As the
falling water hits the bottom it
creates a fine mist that looks
as if steam is boiling up from
the bottom. But, in fact, it is a
cool vapor that really feels
good and when you breath in


the air around the falls it feels
good as it enters your lungs.
I have heard from time to
time that animals could smell
water from a great distance
and I believe now after expe-
riencing the clean moist air
surrounding the falls that
humans can do the same
thing especially if they are in
a unique place such as the
immediate area around the
Christina Falls. I could sense
that the air was extremely
clean and as I mentioned so
easy to breath even though we
were probably above five
thousand feet altitude.
However, I did not like the
looks of that deep hole and
the sheer cliffs that dropped
of so sharply. To be quite
frank, I did not get to close to
it. Jimmy and Doyle on the
other hand went right up to
the edge and took a bunch of
pictures and checked the
area out from every angle.
Me, I was just as happy to let
them tell me about what they
saw and I took my photos
from 'a safe distance with a
good handhold on a tree limb.
The horse ride after we left
the falls was still another
three or four hours and we
did have one black bear run
across in front of us. He was-
n't a threat as black bears as a
rule don't want anything to do
with humans unless they have
cubs or a rouge male that has
gone a little on the crazy side.
When we. got back to
Harold's that afternoon, we
helped him cut up some fire-
wood. He only has wood
heaters to warm his cabin
with and he goes through a lot
of wood during the eight
months of bitter cold.
With all of us cutting the
logs up and racking the wood
we managed to get him a cord
or more ready to burn. He
,w ill need a whole lot more to,
make it through the long win-
ter. I mentioned earlier his
nearest neighbor is a mere 50
miles away and when the
snow really sets in, the only
way in or out is by snowmo-
bile.
To be continued...

South Sumter hoop girls win two games


I


LARRY BuGG
Times Correspondent

The South Sumter High girls
basketball team started off the
season just the way every team
wants to: by winning. South
Sumter beat Hernando 45-19
in Bushnell on Nov. 14.
South Sumter's leading scor-
4r Paulicie Brown, scored 21
points and had 18 rebounds
and six steals. Brown is 5-foot-
7 and is a forward.
Tiajuana Jordan had 10
points, six rebounds and six
steals.


The Raiders had 14. steals.
They shot 17 of 48. "We played
a good man-to-man that night,"
said coach Gary Russo. "We
are a young, inexperienced
team other than those two. We
had a 14-2."
The game was special for
the veteran coach. "That was
my 450th win," he said. "I feel
old. This is my 31st year of
coaching. My overall record is
450-360."
South Sumter beat
Zephyrhills 43-38 in Bushnell
on Nov. 21.
Brown had 17 points, 20


rebounds and three steals.
Jordan left early for a
Thanksgiving holiday and her
coach felt the team missed her.
Haley Williams, a junior,
scored 11 points and had four
rebounds. Junior center
Chelsie Moffitt grabbed seven
rebounds. Moffitt is 6-foot-i
and is in her first year of play.
"They did a good job," Russo


said. "We had a third quarter
lead. We were missing one of
our better players. We execut-
ed well and were lucky enough
to have won it. There were a
few people in foul trouble and
some inexperienced players.
Missing Tiajuana really hurt.
A win is a win."
Russo said the team hit 16 of
64. They made 11 of 19 free


throws.
In the third quarter, the
Raiders led 38-26. At one time,
they led by 14 points.
"We have to get better and
hit those shots," Russo said.
As we get better and mature,
we will be able to hit those
shots."
South Sumter was to play
Spring Hill Springstead High
Tuesday at Bushnell. They will
play Hudson High Friday
there in a district game.
South Sumter is in the same
district with Hernando,
Springstead, Zephyrhills, Gulf,


Hudson and Nature Coast.
Nature Coast and Gulf are the
two top teams, according to
Russo.
South Sumter said his team
was 11-15 last year and seeded
fifth in the district last year.
South Sumter will play two
Christmas tournaments.
They will play in the Mount
Dora Christmas Tournament
Dec. 21 through 23 and then
they will play in the Ocala
Forest High Dec. 28 through
30. Russo said South Sumter
will face Ocala Forest on Dec.
28 at 7 p.m.


Leesburg catches Wildwood


on cold night, wins 58-49


OUTDOOR FUN

Times Correspondent

, It was cold outside and both
boys basketball teams seemed to
i! be just as cold when it came to
i shooting the basketball.
i'. Leesburg beat Wildwood 58-49
in a tough battle at Wildwood
- High's gym. It was the Wildcat's
first game and loss of the season.
Demetrice McCray led
Wildwood with 21 points.
McCray also led in rebounding
with 10 boards. Tadrain
Williams had 10 points.
Wildwood was missing two foot-
-ball players and the game
showed that both teams are not
in midseason form.
"I guess we got off to an okay
r start," said Wildwood coach Von
AVoreland. "In the first quarter,
wve were up 9-7. Neither team
-Was shooting well. They
outscored us 17-7 in the second
g quarter. They had a 24-16 lead at
the half.

Wildwood will play
in the Eustis Rotary
Tournament Dec. 27
through 29.

"I thought we played hard. We
just did not have a real good
shooting night. That was the dif-
ference. We shot 18 for 57 over-
all, 31 percent We were 15 for 37
inside the three-point line. It
just wasn't a good night as far as
hitting the basket."
The Wildcats came close in
the second half but didn't score
enough to take the victory.
"We kind of made a little run
and got within five," said the
coach. "We outscored them 24-20
in the fourth quarter: It wasn't
enough.
"We are just getting our foot-
ball guys back We still have a
couple who are banged up. We
are not where we want to be.


"Leesburg is a good team. We
just would have had to play a lit-
tle better to beat them. I felt like
we did a pretty good job. Jarrell
Douglas, their power forward,
had 24. He was pretty strong. I
felt like we did a pretty good job
defensively Our goal as a team is
to hold a team under 55."
Wildwood was missing run-
ning back Kelvin Jackson. He
was recovering from a shoulder
. injury but had the flu bug and
did not suit up.
Quarterback DeAndre
Mitchell sprained his ankle
badly before the team's first
practice. He did not dress.
"We are hoping to get him suit-
ed up before long," said
Moreland.
Wildwood will play Citrus
High in Inverness on
Wednesday. The Wildcats play
first year school Wiregrass
Ranch High Friday in Pasco
County. Wildwood will play in
the Eustis Rotary Tournament
Dec. 27 through 29.

Commander McGriff told
Chairman Buyer and the rest
of the committee. '"Access to
quality health care has been
compromised by budget short-
falls, rising medical costs and
a sharp increase in demand
for services. The current dis-
cretionary funding formula
pits VA against other agencies
and billions in pork barrel
projects. We believe the sys-
tem needs to be fixed through
assured funding."
Join the AMVETS and add
your voice to the keeping of
veterans benefits.
I figured out how to cure the
high divorce rate in this coun-
try. Have cell phone compa-
nies write the marriage con-
tracts you'll never get out of
them.
