Winter Fest delights residents


AMANDA MIMVs

Shrieks of pure snow-cov-
ered joy resounded through
Wildwood's Millennium Park
as youngsters from toddlers
to teens jumped, hopped and
flopped through mounds of
snow during the city's Winter
Fest holiday celebration
Dec. 9.
For a town that usually
doesn't see much snow, there
were literally tons of the cold
stuff for kids to get into last
Saturday.
According to event volun-.
teer Ginger Jacobs, workers
on site created six tons of
,snowthat afternoonn. ., .
Long before the snow was
piled up high and after a visit
from Santa, children began
waiting in line with parents
and relatives for their time
in snowy bliss..
"We've never seen snow,"
said Bushnell resident Chris
Morrison, who waited in line
for two flours with her 4-
year-old daughter, McKenzie.
Saturday was also the first
time Wildwood 9-year-old
Douglas Kaufman saw snow.
"That was fun. It was the
first snow of my life. I love
it."
While Wildwood's snow
was heavier and more dense
than real snowflakes, "It
makes great snowballs," said
Wildwood City Manager Jim
Stevens, who had actually
just been hit by one.
Even so, he gave the
Winter Fest the thumbs up.
"I think it's (the Winter
Fest a great success for the
first year," Stevens said. "I
think they'll build on to it
year after year," like
Bushnell's Fall Festival.
Stevens estimated the
number of festivalgoers to be
in the low thousands.
Besides the Winter Fest's
obvious big draw, there were
games, numerous food and

according to

was stopped by a deputy near
Wildwood on 1-75 based on
information about the robber's
vehicle.
Hicks was arrested for armed
robbery, driving while license
suspended, possession of evi-
dence of theft and dealing in
stolen property. He was placed
in the Sumter County Detention
Center with bond set at $50,500.
Hicks reportedly robbed the
Waffle House restaurant after 4
a.m. on.Dec.12, Caruthers said.
Hicks had ordered food in the
restaurant, according to
Caruthers.
When he went to the cash reg-
ister to pay, he threatened the
waitress with a razor blade say-
ing "he would not hurt her if she
gave him all the money," accord-
ing to the arrest report. The sus-
pect then jumped over a booth
and reached into the cash regis-
ter taking out money.
Hicks then left the restaurant,
throwing away the razor blade
and fled in a Pontiac Sunbird
north onto 1-75, Caruthers said.
After being stopped near
Wildwood without incident,
Hicks was then taken into cus-
tody, Caruthers said.
Following a license check,
deputies also determined that
the vehicle Aicks was driving

said organizer Brian Gibson.
Gibson, a Sumter County
firefighter, said the idea for a
big holiday celebration in
Wildwood began last year. It
started as a fundraiser for
the fire department, and it
grew into a bigger event to


benefit the community, with
help from sponsors including
the City of Wildwood.
"It's been a great event ...
the community is out here.
That's what matters.
"As long as they're smiling,
we've done a good job."

Lake Panasoffkee property
that he never uses. Maybe it
wasn't too surprising when he
opened up the door to get
something and found that
bees had made a home in his
storage shed.
But it's the size of the nest
that's enough to make a per-
son quake in their boots.
Estimated at six feet by five
feet in size, the nest stretches
from the window, across the
shed, over a lamp and down
onto stored items, holding

"I'm trying to get a beekeep-

he said. He's already had one

he was about to retire and it
was too big of a job for him.
He urged Hemmeke to call

"We had seven patients inside
the bus that we had to get out to
be able to treat," said Sumter
County Fire Services Dep. Chief
Brad Burris of the crash.
"We had to extricate those peo-
ple as quickly as we could to give
them care."
Things were intense for emer-
gency rescuers as they worked to
free the victims.
"We were able to open the sec-
tion of the bus that was right
above the windshield. The wind-
shield had been shattered, so we
had a very little bit that we had to
cut away.
"It took all of about two min-
utes."
Victims, all residents and staff
members of the Westminster
Shores in St Petersburg, were
transported to Leesburg, Pasco
and Orange counties for treat-
ment in what rescue workers
term a mass casualty incident
The crash occurred about 2
p.m. near the 309-mile marker on
Interstate 75, south of Bushnell,
when a 2002 Chrysler 300M
Sedan, driven by Gail Melton, col-
lided with the rear left of the
shuttle bus, sending both vehicles
into a rotation, authorities said.
Both Melton and the 1999 Ford
bus were traveling south on
Interstate 75, Melton on the
inside lane, the bus in the outside
lane, according to a Florida


Highway Patrol report. Melton
drifted into the median, then
steered right The front of her car
collided with the rear of the bus,
sending both vehicles spinning.
The van spun onto the west
shoulder, then overturned, com-
ing to rest on its right side, facing
north, trapping victims inside.
Melton's Chrysler also came to
rest on the west shoulder, but fac-
ing south.
Victims included van driver
Paul D. Dupuis, 68, of Tierra
Verde; staff member Janice
Clifton, 47 of St Petersburg and
Westminster residents Mary
Lawson, 89; Virginia Brundagt,
95; Emmaculate Versandi, 85;
Jeanne O'Brien, 91 and Mildred
Haan, 99, according to the
Florida Highway Patrol report.
Melton, 38, of Altoon, was not
injured.
Life Net helicopter and at least
six ambulances were on scene to
transport patients and the south-
bound lane of the highway was
closed while investigators dealt
with the crash.
The bus belongs to
Westminster Shores and was
transporting residents from a
Christmas event in Bushnell, said
Westminster Communities of
Florida spokesperson Pat
Letchford.
Executives of the company
were spending Wednesday con-
tacting families of the other resi-
dents on the bus, Letchford said.
The other residents were
expected to recover, she said.
An investigation of the acci-
dent continues by Florida

County to discuss city annexations


MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent


Sumter County commission-
ers decided Tuesday to kick
off a series of workshops early
next year with discussions
about how the county will deal
with recent and future land
annexations by Sumter cities.
-The board plans to tackle
that issue during a 9 a.m. to
noon workshop on Jan. 17.
Commissioner Garry
Breeden suggested that the
board needed workshop ses-
sions outside of regular com-
mission meeting days to dis-
cuss about eight separate top-
ics, but noted that probably
three or more subjects could
be handled in any single ses-
sion.
The annexation issue came
up earlier in board discus-
sions with County Attorney
Randall Thornton providing
the board with a briefing on
recent changes in the county.
Commissioners in recent
years have expressed con-
cerns about traffic and
impacts on neighboring com-
munities where cities have
annexed mostly vacant land
and approved major develop-
ments.
In some case, it has left the
board scrambling to deal with
road, drainage and other
impacts.
In a memo prepared for the
Tuesday meeting, County
Development Services
Director Robbie Rogers out-
lined some of the recent


changes in the county.
During the last two years,
Wildwood has been annexing
land and was expected this
week to complete annexation
of an additional 8,200 acres,
according to Rogers' memo.
The county land use desig-
nations remain on the proper-
ties until the city completes its
land use and zoning changes.
The memo also stated that
Wildwood this spring complet-
ed a comprehensive plan
change on approximately
1,800 acres. A large portion of
those parcels was along U.S.
301 north to C-475 or east of
the city along C-466A.
In October, the city transmit-
ted a second application for
land change to the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs. It included 79 parcels
for about 1,236 acres.
A second application for
development of regional
impact and comprehensive
plan amendment is expected
for "Wildwood Springs" south
of C-468 near Coleman. It is
projected to include a 1,024-
acre mixed-use development
with 3,000 housing units and
150.000 square feet of com-
mercial space.
At a minimum, the county
needs to consider the impacts
these developments will have
on roads, according to
Breeden. He also noted that
the county does not have
much other infrastructure in
those areas.
Commissioner Michael
Francis said he had received
some citizens' phone calls
concerned about the exten-


sive annexations.
"It is certainly something on
my mind and theirs," he said.
He suggested that the coun-
ty create an "ad hoc" commit-
tee to review these annexa-
tions as they come up.
The cities should be
informed about the county's
expectations, Breeden said.
Commissioner Randy Mask
asked Thornton if the board
could actually stop an annexa-
tion.
Thornton answered "no."
But he said the board could
appeal an annexation through
the courts.
Commissioner Doug Gilpin
asked if the board could set
guidelines and conditions and
then enforce them.
Again, Thornton answered,
"no."
One of the problems is that
the annexation laws are not
"exactly clear" on matters
such as roads and drainage,
he said.
Breeden said that it's
important for both the cities
and the county to know what
each one expects in such situ-
ations.
The board agreed that the
workshop would also try to
deal with planning and devel-
opment issues, structuring a
committee to deal with annex-
ations, building renovations
and possibly some general
board issues and protocols.
The board also set a work-
shop on solid waste for 3:30
p.m., Jan. 30.
There's no specific sched-
ule set for the other topics
Breeden brought up, but there


was some talk about work-
shops every other week after
the first couple of sessions.
Commissioners have tenta-
tively discussed dealing with
the fire services, emergency
medical services and solid
waste on Jan. 31.
In other business:
Commissioners rejected a
recommendation from the
Parks and Recreation
Department to name the
recently purchased 45-acre
tract in Webster the "Sumter
County Sports Complex" and
to place a permanent sign for
that at the site.
The suggestion followed a
couple of community meet-
ings dealing with the future of
that land for a county recre-
ational park.
But the board sentiment
was generally summarized by
Commissioner Richard
Hoffman who said that the
county should not spend the
estimated $200 to $300 for a
four-foot by eight-foot sign
until the board could have
time to consider a name and
develop a plan for the proper-
ty.
Hoffman, who earlier this
year argued against the board
buying the property, said that
any plans to develop a recre-
ational complex should not
include frontage along State
Road 471.
That frontage should be
developed as commercial lots
to benefit Webster's commer-
cial base and sold to help
recoup some of the land cost.


Cops: Suspect pulled woman out of vehicle by hair


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

A Lake Panasoffkee man
was arrested in Coleman last
weekend after he reportedly
pulled an Orlando woman
out of a vehicle by her hair,
stole her car keys and then
fled, according to a Coleman
Police Department report.
Brian Sigler, 34, was arrest-
ed one day after the incident
and charged with robbery,
aggravated assault and bat-


tery. Sigler was placed in the
Sumter County Detention
Center with bond set at
$10,500.
Sigler reportedly followed
behind the victim as she
drove through Coleman
about 6:33 p.m. on Dec. 9 to
pick up a vehicle, according
to the police report.
Coleman Police Officer
Matt Perry reported that he
responded to an assault alert,
finding a Nissan Pathfinder
on the east side of Central
Avenue.


The victim told the officer
that a vehicle followed
behind her "within inches,"
according to the report.
She pulled slightly off the
road to allow the vehicle to
pass but it stopped behind
the Pathfinder she was driv-
ing.
The woman said she was
"ripped and pulled from the
vehicle by her hair" by Sigler,
a friend of her former
boyfriend, the report states.
He then allegedly threw her
to the ground and sat in the


driver's seat, removing the
keys.
When she attempted to
stop him from taking the car
keys, she was again thrown to
the ground and Sigler
attempted to kick her,
according to Perry's report.
Sigler then reportedly fled
from the scene in a green
Chevrolet Camero.
Sigler was arrested the fol-
lowing afternoon after he
turned himself in to Coleman
authorities.


uncommon in Sumter County.
He's seen one near the
Primitive Baptist Church and
clumps'"of them hanging out in
the woods.
As big as the hive is, he said
the bees could create it in two
months.
"They set up housekeeping
and they go to work"
Most of the ones in the Lake
Panasoffkee hive are females.
As for concerns about the
bees, Hemmeke said, "some of
my neighbors are more worried
about it than I am."

State attorney asked to investigate Center Hill election


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The City of Center Hill's
unusually high Dec. 5 voter
turnout 41 percent and its
voluminous stack of absentee
ballots supporting incumbent
candidates have raised eye-
brows among some of the
city's other candidates.
Bill Sanders, who lost a bid
for City Council Seat 1 to


incumbent Bubba Hodge by
three votes despite garnering
the majority of votes at the
polling place, is asking State
Attorney Brad King to investi-
gate perceived "apparent vot-
ing irregularities."
In the Dec. 5 election, three
challengers would have been
the clear winners were it not
for the nearly 50 absentee vot-
ers; almost all of them favored
incumbents Jimmy Smith, J.R.
Smith and Bubba Hodge.


For example, Sanders
received 60 votes at the
polling place and zero by
absentee ballot. Hodge, his
opponent, received 28 votes at
the polling place and 35 by
absentee ballot. Doug Cook, a
former council member who
also challenged Hodge,
received 14 votes at the
polling place and 11 by absen-
tee ballot
But Councilman J.R. Smith
said while he was "pleasantly


surprised" that he won in
what he considers his most
controversial election, "I did-
n't campaign that way (to get
absentee votes) at all.
"I hardly did any campaign-
ing."
The pastor and volunteer
firefighter said he did very lit-
tle campaigning aside from
talking to Center Hill resi-
dents he knows, but "the peo-
ple (incumbents' challengers)
that were running, they really


did campaign," which may
have contributed to a higher
voter turnout.
According to election
results released by the city,
there were 150 total ballots
cast including 47 absentee
ballots. The tally sheets were
signed by the canvassing
board: Mayor Ralph Barry,
City Clerk Diane Lamb and
Election Clerk Wynne
Darulla.
"I was expecting around 100


(ballots cast), so yeah, that was
pretty different. But then
again, this was a big election,"
J.R. Smith said.
'"As far as absentee ballots,
I'm not sure what happened
there.
"I have no doubt everything
was run the way it was sup-
posed to. I have total confi-
dence in our staff here."

Suspect nabbed

after officer stuns

him with Taser

BOB REICHMAN
Editor

A Bushnell man was
arrested Saturday night after
he fled on foot from a sher-
iff's deputy in Center Hill
and was finally apprehended
when he was stunned by the
officer's Taser gun.
Matthew Simmons, 28,
Bushnell, was arrested for
possession of crack cocaine,
battery on a law enforcement
officer, resisting a law
enforcement officer with vio-
lence and on a Sumter
County warrant for driving
while license suspended.
The incident began about
8:20 p.m. Dec. 9 when Deputy
Bill Lamb became suspicious
of a vehicle traveling south
on Virginia Avenue, accord-
ing to sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers. Lamb
approached the vehicle


when it stopped at a home.
While he was questioning
Simmons, the driver of the
vehicle, Lamb noticed that
Simmons was becoming
nervous and kept glancing at
his passenger, according to
Caruthers.
Lamb then told Simmons
he was going to "pat him
down," Caruthers said.
Simnmons attempted to stop
Lamb from checking his coat
by breaking the officer's grip,
he said. Simmons then start-
ed running.
The officer pursued and
unsuccessfully yelled for
Simmons to stop.
As Simmons continued to
run, Lamb saw Simmons
attempting to dump the con-
tents of a white pill bottle,
Caruthers said,
Lamb was able to catch up
to Simmons and stunned him
with his Taser gun when he
refused to stop, according to
Caruthers.
He was then handcuffed
and taken into custody.
The pill bottle was recov-
ered and its contents tested
positive for crack cocaine,
Caruthers said.

A successful event for city Departurefrom


W ell, Wildwood certainly
pulled it off. Last week-
end, thousands of people
ventured to Millennium Park to
participate in the community-
sponsored Winter Fest.
From the turnout, it looks like
Wildwood has a winning festival
on its hands, one that is certain to
become an annual event.
That's great news not only for
those who attended, but also for
the organizers. In the past,
Wildwood's attempts to have a
holiday celebration have fallen
flat neither the interest nor the
support seemed to be there.
But this year, well this year's
event WAs a completely different
story.
And we believe City Manager
Jim Stevens is correct. The event
does look like it's headed in the
same direction as the Bushnell
Fall Festival a quality communi-
ty event that grows with each
.passing year.
S.So many kids got to play in the
snow (six tons of snow created at
the park); many of them have
never even seen snow before.
They were there, on Saturday,


throwing snowballs and making
snow angels.
That alone is surely an experi-
ence many of them won't soon for-
get.
Then there're the visits from
Santa, the food, the Christmas
music no one seemed to be going
home disappointed.
There even appeared to be a lit-
tle more participation Saturday
in the morning Christmas parade
that's been going on for years.
A lot of the credit for this feat
has to go to organizer Brian
Gibson and the crew of people
that helped make the event suc-
cessful.
Not to mention the sponsors -
the City of Wildwood, the area
individuals and businesses and
the fire department.
Then there's the main contribu-
tion a $5,000 tourist develop-
ment grant, funded by revenue
from the county-imposed "bed
tax."
We're pleased here at the Times
to see this event flourish.'We were
glad to help promote the event
and keep news about it in front of
our readers' eyes.

Gallagher provides Floridians

with holiday fire safety tips


s Floridians prepare for chilly
weather and the 2006 holiday sea-
son by turning up their heaters
and setting out candles and lights, State
Fire Marshal Tom Gallagher is urging
residents to keep safety in mind.
According to the National Fire
Protection Association, 73 percent of
home-heating deaths are attributed to
space heaters. The association also
reports that real or artificial Christmas
trees were the first item in the home to
ignite in an estimated average of 310
reported U.S. home structure fires per
year from 1999 to 2002. These fires
caused an average of 14 deaths, 40
injuries, and $16.2 million in direct prop-
erty damage per year.
"This time of year we see a large num-
ber of preventable fires that occur in
Florida's homes," Gallagher said. "I
urge all Floridians to be cautious, have
working smoke alarms and fire escape
plans."
Gallagher encourages all Floridians to
follow these simple fire safety tips:
Make sure you have smoke detec-
tors and make sure they work
Create a fire escape plan for your
family and practice carrying out the
plan.


Use flashlights instead of candles if
electrical power is knocked out.
Plug electric space heaters directly
into wall outlets. Do not use extension
cords.
Keep space heaters and other heat
sources at least 3 feet away from furni-
ture, walls and drapes and never use a
space heater in a bedroom.
Before using a fireplace, make sure
the chimney flue is open so carbon
monoxide gas can escape.
If your natural gas is shut off or the
pilot light needs to be re-lit, contact your
local gas company. Do not attempt to turn
the gas on or light the pilot on your own.
Water Christmas trees daily.
Don't let tree lights touch needles or
curtains.
Turn out lights and snuff candles
before going to bed or leaving the house.
Keep candles out of reach of chil-
dren and pets and use sturdy candle-
holders.
Have an operable fire extinguisher
readily available.
"Education and awareness are critical
to help prevent home fires," Gallagher
said. "These tips can help save lives."

It is with a feeling of sadness and
anticipation that I am leaving the
position of Medical Director at
Thomas E. Langley Medical Center.
I have worked as a family physician
and geriatrician at your community
health center for almost nine years.
During this time I have seen your
children grow, your adults grow
older and some of your elderly pass
away. You always made me feel
part of your families. I have
become a more experienced doctor
with your help. I have learned to
listen. I have improved my ability,
not only to diagnose diseases, but to
recognize that we can explore
options for treatment together and


you, the patient, will ultimately
choose the one that is right for you.
Now I know. "Nobody likes to take
pills."
You are probably wondering why
I am leaving. I am sure you will
understand my reason. I need to be
closer to my family, physically and
emotionally As you know, they are
the priority of my life and they
deserve all my attention at this
time.
As I leave, I would like to take the
opportunity to advocate for the
importance of prevention. An old
saying states, "one ounce of pre-
vention is worth a ton of medicine."
You can be healthier longer if you
vaccinate your children, get your-
self tested* for common forms of


cancer, such as breast and colon,
eat healthy and exercise regularly.
You can make the change.
Achieving and maintaining a
healthy weight will keep your
entire family from having to take
"medicines" for blood pressure,
cholesterol and diabetes for gener-
ations.
Thank you for making me part of
your community. I have really
enjoyed feeling like one of yours. I
feel honored and privileged to have
been your physician.
Wishing you optimal health and

A political and social history of Medicare


It is now more than 40 years since
Medicare was started. I wrote in
December 2003: "President
Bush's Modernization ofMedicareAct
of 2003 (MMA), currently
portrayed to 'we the peo-
ple' as a prescription drug
act, isI far more profound
and gloomy than we are
being told. It is in all
authenticity an attempt to
repeal Medicare as we
have known it, by means of .,0
turning it over to the pri-
vate sector." And it has
come to pass through the :
confusion of Part D last
year, and the push of DA
Medicare Advantage plans ROI
this year.
As part of Lyndon
Baines Johnson's Great Society, titles
XVIII and XIX of the Social Security
Act were implemented in 1965 as
Medicare and Medicaid. Currently,
more than 100 million Americans are
enrolled in both programs. Medicare,
presently near a budget of $85 billion
per year, continues to baffle all pro-
jected budgets. Now, trying anything
to privatize Medicare, at any cost, we
are approaching the entry of 78 mil-,
lion baby boomers, and guess what?
Next year, Generation X will be 42
years of age.
Some 20 years before Franklin D.
Roosevelt created the Social Security
program, his original concept was to
create a minimum-standard of gov-
ernment-controlled assistance to help
with cost, not a national pension, for
those older than 65.
The Constitution does not grant the
republic the right to start such a pro-
gram. Yet, it continues and has been
expanded.
It is my personal opinion that
Roosevelt, using the wisdom of John
Maynard Keynes, the preeminent
economist of the 20th century and the


father of deficit spending, never
intended Social Security to exist post
depression. This \vas during a time
when Roosexelt created the TV_, the
WPA, the CCC and, most
important to my theory,
Sthe National Youth
Administration (NYA).
The NYA was created to
;: provide jobs to young peo-
ple in school. All of these
programs were created to
not only provide jobs, and
'*. float dollars, but most
importantly to "prime the
:- pump."
."; The government was
LN already printing money, a
HAN tenet of Keynesian eco-
RMM nomics. It is my belief that
Social Security was creat-
ed for this reason, and not an altruis-
tic reckoning.
Had Roosevelt lived and been of
healthy mind, he would have termi-
nated Social Security in 1946. Social
Security is the only New Deal pro-
gram still around. And Social Security
was the antithesis of the NYA.
Upon the death of President
Roosevelt and the ascent of President
Truman, there was a philosophical
difference between the two.
Remember, I am addressing only
Social Security and Medicare. In 1948,
the Democratic Party of President
Truman included in its platform an
expansion of Social Security into the
health sector, something like
Medicare.
President Truman continued to
attempt to pass some type of health
care for the elderly, until the end of
his administration.
He also saw to it that the 1952 and
1956 platforms of Adlai Stevenson
included some sort of health care for
the elderly Truman never gave up.
In the 1960 election of John F
Kennedy, Truman again persuaded


the party and the new president to
create some form of Medicare. The
tragic and premature deatih of
President Kennedy did not end the
idealism of Truman and the era of
New Deal politics. After the 1964 elec-
tion of President Johnson, Congress
started to move. Nobody could manip-
ulate the Congress like Johnson. He
was eager to pass the legislation of his
Great Society, and inscribe his place
in history. The legislation was passed
in 1965, and became effective July 1,
1966. Unknown to LBJ, this would
indeed become his primary legacy;
the last two years of his administra-
tion would become agonizing.
The first Medicare card was deliv-
ered by President Johnson, at
Independence, Mo., in the name of,
and to, Harry Truman.
Two major points in the history of
Medicare: First, the only major group
opposing the new law was the
American Medical Association. The
irony is that for the first 20 years of the
program, physicians gained the most.
Now the program is breaking them.
I once had lunch in the early 1980s
with an ophthalmologist, who told me:
"Dan, Medicare was the worst pro-
gram ever legislated into law, but
because of it, I live in a $2 million
home." The second point is the pro-
gram itself: Was it truly an altruistic
move on the part of LBJ? Remember,
with one stroke of his pen, he relieved
every labor union and major
American corporation of the liability
of retirement health care, ultimately
saving them trillions of dollars! And
now our medications are disappear-
ing.
And, once again, the tab is on all of
us.

Partnerships and nutrition assistance aimed at ensuring healthy families


Our nation has a long and dis-
tinguished record of providing
nutrition assistance to our chil-
dren, low-income families and
the elderly Progress has been
made, but much remains to be
done to ensure that all families
have access to healthy food.
To achieve this goal all of us
must work together. The
progress we've made as a nation
can be attributed to strong com-
mitment to our nation's nutrition


assistance programs. The strong
partnership that exists between
the government, food banks,
16cal faith and community-based
organizations and others who
are on the front lines across the
country is critical to ensuring
that everyone who is eligible for
nutrition assistance has access
to it.
Since 2001, we have added 6.6
million more low-income chil-
dren and families to the Food


Stamp program. The Food
Stamp Program now serves
more than 26 million people
every month, enabling them to
put nutritious food on the dinner
table. In many food pantries and
soup kitchen across the country,
volunteers are helping low-
income families begin the
process of enrollment in the
Food Stamp Program as they
pick up a needed food package
or receive a warm meal.


Access to the child nutrition
programs has increased as well.
Over the past five years, more
than 1 million more low-income
children ate a free or reduced-
price lunch and 1.3 million more
children ate a school breakfast
That means that today 30 million
children receive a school lunch
and nearly 10 million receive
school breakfast.
Federal programs like the
Food Stamp Program and the


child nutrition programs are an
important part of the solution.
Equally important is the individ-
ual and corporate donations to
food banks and other emergency
feeding sites and the many citi-
zen volunteers who give gener-
ously of their time to improve
the lives of their neighbors and
their community.

Will is shown in the Jack Russell Hurdle Racing competition at the national finals of the Purina
Incredible Dog Challenge.

,Incredible Will: Small, but speedy


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

He's less than a foot tall, but
he's among the fastest in the
entire nation.
That's Will, a Jack Russell ter-
rier owned by Shelly and Glen
Holland of Lady Lake.
The three-year-old took first
place in the Jack Russell Hurdle
Racing competition at the
national finals of the Purina
Incredible Dog Challenge.
The event was held in St.
Louis, Mo., on Oct. 7 and will be
televised on NBC at noon on Jan.
20 and at 11:30 a.m. on.Feb. 3 on
Bravo.
The Hollands, all five of them -
Shelly, Glen, Will and their other
two Jack Russells, are spending
their days traveling from state to
state as Will vies for titles.
Mrs. Holland said they went to
their first Jack Russell competi-
tion about 16 years ago when they
got their first dog. They became
more interested as time passed
and this year, they've been to
Missouri, North Carolina,
Maryland, Memphis and
, Zephyrhills as Will competes.
She knew Will was at the top of
his game right now as he moved
through the national competition,
and he works to keep in shape.
"He swims every day."
He spends about 20 minutes in
their pool, retrieving a ball that
Mrs. Holland throws for him.
Twice a day, he also runs the
fence of their four-acre property,
with Mr. Holland, the Holland
dogs and the black Labradors
that live next door.
"I call them trainers," she said
with a laugh of the Labs.
He also plays against a tennis


Shelly and Glen Holland with their racing champ Will.


ball chucker, retrieving the balls.
Mrs. Holland said his regimen
with the chucker lasts "until he
runs for the pool instead of bring-
ing me the ball back."
Regionals are coming up in St.
Petersburg, which will include
two dogs from the east, two from
the west and two from Missouri.
The Hollands love what they're
doing with Will, pointing out the
hospitality of Purina as the hosts
and all the friends they've made
through competition.
It's a very social event, she
said.
Jack Russells are bred for
hunting underground quarry and
have a lot of energy, she said.
Because of Florida sand, it's
difficult for them to hunt locally,
so "they have to go into Georgia to
hunt"
Holland thinks that's why
Florida has the reputation for the
fastest racing dogs in the breed.
Will has been clocked at 34
miles per hour.
"They can do everything a
retriever can do in a small pack-


age," she said, pointing out that
they're loyal and sweet
"They're the best breed," she
said with a laugh.
There are several competitions
the Jack Russells can be entered
in, but Will's competition
includes a 250-feet course. The
race starts with six dogs in a start-
ing box. They chase lure and at
the end of the run, there's a hay
bale. The first dog to get through
the hole and into the back of the
finishing area is the winner.
Holland said the dogs get to the
end of the run, where they know
the lure is, and they're all going
crazy for it.
Holland said once a person has
a Jack Russell, that's the dog of
choice. "I've had everything."
She said they have no smell at
all and "they just love their peo-
ple so much," she said.
The Hollands love the opportu-
nity for their dogs to compete, but
they also love the gathering of the
events.
"Purina just really goes all
out."

ELECTION
continued from Page 3
Lamb, too, said she was sur-
prised at the high voter turnout
"I've been here six years,
almost seven, and we've never
had more than 100 (ballots
cast)," she said, adding that
some voters turned in absentee
ballots at city hall because they
felt "intimidated" by those chal-
lengers who were campaigning
outside the polling place across
the street
'They were walking people
up to the polling place. When
the cars were coming up the
road, they were coming up to
people."
She said last year, only 10 vot-
ers used absentee ballots and
there were about the same num-
ber of registered voters (there
are 363 now).
"I think at the last election we
had only 64 voters (participate
in the election) and that includ-
ed absentees."
But the 31 percent of votes by
absentee ballots in this election
is partly what prompted David
Theriaque, Sanders' attorney, to
ask for an investigation.
On Dec. 8, Theriaque sent


King a letter requesting an
investigation "to ensure that no
violations of the state's election
laws occurred.
"The voting tally sheets for
the Center Hill election reflect
that an inordinately large num-
ber of absentee ballots were cast
for incumbent candidates in a
ratio far different from that of
the votes cast at the actual
polling place," according to the
letter.
Calls to Jimmy Smith and
Hodge were not immediately
returned.
Theriaque compared the
Center Hill election to the elec-
tion held by the City of Bushnell,
which has 1,401 registered vot-
ers, the same night.
"In the Bushnell election, a
total of 255 votes were cast, only
12 of which were by absentee
ballot (4.8 percent). Further, the
voting ratio for absentee voting
in Bushnell was statistically in
line with the votes cast for the
candidates at the polling place."
According to Theriaque's let-
ter, 84 percent of the absentee
ballots were cast for incum-
bents.
Cassie Brown, who ran
against Jimmy Smith for City
Council Seat 5, also questions
the election results and said
being "a poor loser has nothing


to do with it.
"I'm not making accusations,
but it (the high number of absen-
tee ballots) warrants an investi-
gation."
J.R. Smith said much of the
controversy in this city election
season is due to the city's con-
sideration of a 1,300-acre mine
and cement plant for Sumter
Cement.
On the day before the elec-
tion, the City Council unani-
mously approved requests by
the company to move forward
with the project.
Council members were sched-
uled to review those requests
the day of the election, but the
City Council meeting was
rescheduled for Dec. 4.
The mining project and other
development projects have left
some residents of Center Hill
and the surrounding areas at
odds with the city for more than
a year.
The City Council previously
approved requests for the mine
and plant project in January.
However, three lawsuits were
filed against the city for its deci-
sions in favor of the mining com-
pany and one of those lawsuits,
on which Sanders was listed as a
plaintiff, resulted in the city's
decisions being nullified in cir-
cuit court in August.

Raider girls still can't find the basket, lose two


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

The South Sumter High girl's
basketball team still has only
one problem. They almost can't
find the basket and it is getting
to be painful to them. South
Sumter lost to Clermont East
Ridge High 53-21 ;and to Nature
Coast 57-22.
East Ridge beat them on Dec.
7, the 65th anniversary of the
attack on pearl Harbor in
Clermont. /
The Raid rs coach felt like his


team went through a hoop bomb-
ing. "It felt like Pearl Harbor,"
said coach Gary Russo. "It was
poor shooting. We were 10 for 49
and one for two at the free throw
line. We do all: aspects of the
game well except for shooting.
It's been that way all year."
Paulcia Brown had seven
points and 11 rebounds to lead
the team. "None of the games
are bad," Russo said. "It just all
goes down to shooting. You
ought to be in the game. That's
been our problem all year."
They lost to Nature Coast Dec.
8 at Spring Hill. Brown had 13


The holidays start with a tournament Dec. 21-
23. South Sumter will play at the Mount Dora
Christmas Tournament. They will play Oak
Ridge at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 21.


points and 12 points.
"Our shooting percentage was
eight for 45 and our free throws
were six for 13," said Russo. "We
played good defense. We
rebound well. We have to put the
ball in the basket It seems to be


a problem that runs the whole
thing.")
The coach can't say his team is
shooting wild low percentage
shots. "We charted all our
games," the coach said. "Out of
the 45 shots against Nature


Coast, 41 were all good shots. We
are getting the shots. We have to
put them away.
"Nature Coast is probably the
best team in the district. Our
effort was fine. We turned the
ball over a little bit. "I think
Nature Coast was runner-up to
Gulf in the district last year. This
year, they look like they are
going to be the team to beat.
They are just a balanced team
inside and outside. They just do
a good job."
The South Sumter team is
healthy.
The team is 3-4 overall and 3-3


in district play.
South Sumter was to play
Mount Dora Monday and
Tuesday at Hernando High.
Results were unavailable at
press time.
South Sumter will play Dade
City Pasco High Dec. 18 in
Bushnell. The following Monday,
they will face East Ridge at
home.
The holidays start with a tour-
nament Dec. 21-23. South
Sumter will play at the Mount
Dora Christmas Tournament.
They will play Oak Ridge at 4:30
p.m. on Dec. 21.


FOR THE GATORS FAN


McCray leads Wildwood


boys to three wins


The Sumter County Retired Educators held its monthly meeting last Thursday and drew the name
of the winner of their Florida Gators jacket. The donated jacket earned nearly $500 in scholarship
money for the group and the jacket was donated by Jackie Denham. They provide scholarships
for two students who plan to become teachers from each of the county's two public high schools.
Shown are Minnie Ruth Stumborg; Dr. Germaine J, Phillip, district board trustee, and Horton
Barnes as they drew the name of the winner Charlie Jacobs. The local group of retired educa-
tors met for their Christmas meeting and the drawing on Thursday, Dec. 7 at the Wildwood United

Williams had 15 points and

Mark Stephens led South
Sumter with 12 points.
"We jumped out to an early
lead," said Moreland.
"They took the lead in the
fourth quarter. It was a typi-
cal Wildwood-South Sumter
game. We were able to score
in the end. Demetrice had
eight in the fourth quarter
but it was a team effort. We
rebounded well. We turned
the ball over a little bit too
much.
"We didn't shoot exception-
ally well. I thought the guys
did a good job of hanging in
there and doing what it took
to win the game."

67-49 at Umatilla on Dec. 8.

Numbness



& Tingling

in your extremities?

Are you or someone you know experiencing
pain or numbness in your back, legs or feet?
If yes, it could be the result of a herniated disc.

Thanks to a recent breakthrough called Minimal
Access Spinal Technologies (MAST'`), our qualified sur-
geons can now treat this condition using a minimally
in.oasi-,e technique that is less painful and less traumatic
than traditional disc surgery. This can help reduce scar-
ring and recovery time.
It's just another way we bring state-of-the-art care to
you. For more information, contact us today.

Veteran COC:SER --


It's been a good year


ForAMVET Post 793 and
the Sumter Volunteer
Honor Guard it has
been a very good
year
We have added
several new mem-
bers to the Post and
have also added .
new members to
the honor guard. If
you are thinking
'about joining 'the
AMVETS I would
suggest you do it
now, as the dues
will go up in WoIL
January 2007. PoL
We have done
well with our
money-raising projects and
have been able to help sever-
al local charities.
The honor guard is sad-
dened to be losing so many of
our veterans, but also proud
to have been able to provide
military funerals for some of
the veterans. The honor guard
has averaged 45 funerals per


month this past year.
It was very good news to
hear that the $370 million
Orlando veterans
hospital has
received the go
ahead. I read an
article awhile ago
that the VA hospi-
tals are the best in
the U.S. I am sure
this one will have
state-of-the-art
equipment and be
staffed with the
best doctors.
LIAM If you are flying
3URN during the holidays
(I mean in a plane,
of course) I would
suggest you take extra care
with your medications. It does
get hot in the baggage com-i
apartment. (so I'm told) and be
sure to take enough medica-
tion with you in case of
delays.
My Health e Vet has added
three new features to their
Web site. I don't know how


many of you use the Web site,
but it's a lot more convenient
than waiting for someone to
answer a phone. The new
sites are Food Journal,
Activity Journal, and Pulse
Oximetry. Give them a try, you
might like it.
If you would like to join the
AMVETS, give Howard May a
call. If you have some spare
time and would like to join
the honor guard, give Garfield
Jones a call.
Before leaving on a busi-
ness trip, Lex took his young
son Cameron aside. "Cam,"
he said, "I am trusting you to
take care of the family you
will be the man of the house."
Comprehending the gravity of
the situation. Cameron said,
-In that case I'm goingtbo need
the remote."
The AMVET POST 793 and
The Sumter Volunteer Honor
Guard wish every one a merry
Xmas and a happy new year
and may all the children get
what they want for Christmas.

Linden Church of God sponsors toy drive


Derrell Isom, November Artist
of the Month for Cindy Spell's
second period drawing class.

J.R. Sabilona is the November
Artist of the Month for Cindy
Spell's painting class at South
Sumter High School.


"We are looking for our niche
in our community for Christmas
time," said Senior Pastor Lanny
Troller while addressing his
congregation recently.
The Linden Church of God is
sponsoring a Christmas Toy
Drive now through Dec. 22.
They got the idea from a state
sponsored program that the
Church of God does each year.
After receiving information on
that program, Troller and sev-
eral members of his church
council began discussing
whether or not to participate in
the state program and instead
decided to localize it them-
selves.
Church member Gary
Norman built a large toy box to
collect the toys in and it now
sits in the foyer of the church.
"I would like to see that box
filled not just one time, but
many times. over," stated
Troller.
With that statement, Norman
also provided a trailer for stor-
ing the toys when the box was
filled to capacity, so it could be
emptied and refilled again.
Now.the congregation does not
want to fill the toy box, but the
trailer.
The church is looking to the
community to help brighten the
Christmas of Sumter County
families who might not other-
wise have a Christmas. If you
would like to help with this toy
drive, you may donate new,
unwrapped toys with a value of
at least $5. The church is look-

ing for donations of new blan-
kets and new heaters for needy
families as well. Troller has a
goal of 100 blankets.
There are two drop off points
if anyone would like to help
donate items to this cause: the
Linden Church of God, 4309
C.R. 772, Webster or the Winn-
Dixie, 440 Gulf Atlantic Blvd.,
Wildwood.


Items will be collected until
Dec. 22 and plans to distribute
the items to needy families are
as big as the drive to collect
them. The Webster Market has
given space to Pastor Troller
and his church for Saturday,
Dec. 23. Beginning at 11 a.m.
the church will be at the market
with free hot dogs and live
music to distribute the items.


Music will be provided by
Psalm 101 of Lakeland, the
Christian Edge Coffee House of
Lacoochee and others.
Everyone is welcome to come
and be a part of this day with
this local congregation.
Contact the church office at
793-4281 with any questions or
for information regarding this
event.


Roman Hernandez is the
November Artist of the Month
for first period drawing in
Cindy Spell's art class at
South Sumter High School.


During this holiday season and every day
of the year, we wish you all the best.

British Columbia adventure, checking out Davis Lake with Harold


I think, remembering back,
it was about the fifth or
sixth day of our stay while
we were visiting Harold
Lewis, my long time
buddy who now ----
resides way up in
the northern most
reaches of British
Columbia, that we
had just returned
from a. long
overnight trip up to
one of his distant
most neighbors'
ranches 30 miles or
so north of his
place. JAI
For myself, I was ADA
still more than a lit- --
tle bit on the saddle
sore side resulting from the
long horseback ride. But, I was
feeling much better now that I
had two feet on firm ground
instead on the back of a horse.
Anyhow, after returning
back to Harold's place, and
helping him cut and rack up a
cord or two of firewood, I put
on a big bait of Dawson City
pork spare ribs on a charcoal
fire and started fixing supper.
You know folks, pondering on
it a tad, I don't know of any-
thing much better to feast on
that is any better than close
trimmed pork ribs cooked
over a good bed of hot coals
and then eating right off the

The next morning, after
another fine nights sleep,
Harold wanted us to take yet
another horseback ride over to
a hidden lake he
---- had discovered sev-
eral years back As
far as he knew, it
had never been
fished by anyone
other than himself
and his boy Davis
and with a couple of
other close closed-
mouthed buddies.
,r. On this horseback
ride, while I had the
MIE same horse, you can
IMS best believe I
- changed saddles
This time, the ride
was a pure out and out pleas-
ure. We took off right after
breakfast and this ride to the
lake was a good three hours
through some more beautiful
country much like the trip we
had just had the couple of days
before but with the exception
that the woods were a whole
lot thicker and much higher in
the mountains.
Harold has named the hid-
den lake after his youngest son
Davis and even has had a sign
made up and placed on the
end of the lake where he has a
small primitive camp site
cleared out and a hitching rail
to tie off the horses. The wind-
ing ride to the lake took us by
several spring and seep fed
creeks that were teeming with
beavers and the amazing dams
they build. The trail xwe were
riding on, from time to time,
looked to me as if the beavers
had often burrowed out caves


right in the bank directly
under the trail and we were
often riding right over the top
of them.
I could not help but think
about the gator caves we have
here in Florida and the
thought kept racing through
my mind that I sure hoped
none of the horses stepped in
a spot where the caves were
close to the surface and we
and the horses fall into the
beaver dens below. However,
the well-trained and experi-
enced mountain horses, as on
the trip at night, knew exactly
where to step and we had no
problems at all.
It was a little before noon
when we got to the lake and
the only way I can try and
describe the beauty of the
water is to say that it is much
like the light blue-green pale
color of fine looking cat-eyed
woman. The water was crystal
clear and clean and there
were fish which Harold said,
"were rainbow trout" rising to
surface feeding everywhere
we looked.
There was also a pair of
swans with their new hatch-
lings feeding along the shore-
line. But, the most intriguing
thing to me was the loons that
were feeding and cutting up
all over the lake. I had often
heard the sounds that loons
make on the television nature
shows many times in the past
but the actual sound they
make is something to behold.
They sent shivers up and
down my back
We had brought the leftover
ribs from the past night sup-


Giv ng horses a well needed rest at Davis Lake in British Columbia


pers along with a couple of
thermos bottles of coffee in
our saddle bags and after we
unsaddled the horse for a rest
we once more enjoyed the
ribs. For my part, they were
even better than when they
were hot. You can bet there
was not much meat left on the
bones for the dogs to enjoy but
they were mighty glad to get
them.
The grass is deep and lush
around Harold's campsite so


we all had us an hour or so of
serious nooning and my
friends this was the kind of
nap you could do all day with-
out any trouble but there was
things to see and places to
check out so we cut the naps
short
As we walked around the
lake, we were making big time
plans for a return trip next
year and this time we would
come to the lake with the nec-
essary equipment to cold


camp for a couple of days and
do some serious fishing.
Harold has not fished the lake
in the summer months but he
has ice fished the lake in the
winter and knew they were
some really big rainbows in
the lake. He can get to the lake
on a snowmobile in the winter
but other than the horses or,
walking there is no other way
into the lake the rest of the
year.
To be continued.
