Suspected Ruiz-Wells murderer indicted


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer
- Last week, a Sumter County
grand jury indicted Wisconsin
prisoner Bill Paul Marquardt
for the brutal 2000 murders of
a Tarrytown mother and
daughter.
- "We're thankful to have the
indictment," said sheriff's
Capt. Gary Brannen, the lead
investigator on the 6-year-old


case that shocked and sad-
dened the small community.
"We're thankful that we
have this case solved, that
we're seeing to it that he gets
his day in court."
Marquardt, now 31, is
accused of killing 72-year-old
Margarita Valdez Ruiz and her
daughter, Esperanza Angela
Wells, 42, inside the women's
home off Highway 50 on
March 15, 2000. He is charged


with two counts of first-degree
murder and burglary to a
dwelling with a firearm.
Marquardt is currently
incarcerated in a Wisconsin


mental health facility, where
he is serving a 75-year sen-
tence on charges including
killing and dismembering ani-
mals.


According to police, the
murders were random. The
killer entered the women's
home, shot the women in the
neck and then stabbed them
repeatedly. At the time of the
murders, the women were
caring for two young relatives,
ages 1 and 3, who hid when
the women were attacked.
Nothing was stolen and
there was no evidence of sex-
ual assault, Brannen has said.


Initially, leads went
nowhere and the case quickly
grew cold.
For six years, investigators
never found a suspect or
determined a motive. The
only witnesses were small
children, and Wells' and.
Ruiz's family were left with-
out any answers.

It's been 2,000 years since
Christ was born in a tiny sta-
ble in Bethlehem, but last
\weekend. congregation mem-
bers of t he First Baptist
Church of Bushnell took
nearly 3,000 people back in
time to experience what
those moments might have
been like.
SIlembers donated their
time and energy to set up
their Bethlehem and Lord's
Supper and the host of angels
!and a host of other things, as
'they prepared for their 15th
annual Living Nativity.
One hundred and sixty peo-
ple of all ages joined together
to. present the birth, death


and resurrection of Christ in
period costume.
A two-night presentation,
the event was held from 6:30
p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday
and Sunday, Dec. 16 and 17.
Coordinated by member
Sim Cave, the event also
included live donkeys, horses
and cows. There was a host of
angels and the little town of
Bethlehem, with residents
overflowing the streets for
the census.
There was a manger and
several depictions of Mary,
from the one still carrying the
babe, to the one holding him
in her arms at his birth, to the
Mary who is the sister of
Lazarus. C

Don't think there's any agri-
culture left in Sumter County?
Think again there's plenty
of growth for the nation hap-
pening right here before your
eyes, and the Sumter County
Farm Bureau is working to
make sure you're aware of it.
Last week the organization
held their annual Farm City
Week luncheon, gathering
representatives from the agri-
culture industry and repre-
sentatives from the business


community. It was all part of
National Farm-City Week and
is designed to celebrate the
partnership between
America's rural, and urban
industries.
The luncheon drew county
government officers, realtors,
law enforcement, farmers,
ranchers and school board
representatives just to name
a few.
Typically, the event is held
in November. This year's
luncheon was at noon on
Thursday, Dec. 7 at the First
Baptist Church of Bushnell


and coordinated by Farm
Bureau members Patricia
Wells and Natalie Simmons.
This was Wells' turn to lead.
Gwen Blair cooked up the
roast, while the Speckled
Butterbean restaurant in
Webster catered the rest and
Future Farmers of America
served.
While the event is hosted by
Farm Bureau, it does include
state and local agencies such
as the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Sumter

election


lawsuit

AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Three defeated candidates
for City Council have filed a
lawsuit against Center Hill
officials and its winning can-
didates, casting shadows over
the city's December election.
The suit, filed last Friday by
Bill Sanders, Leigh Davidson
and Cassie Brown, lists defen-
dants as: the Sumter County
Canvassing Board, the City of
Center Hill Canvassing
Board, Diane Lamb as city
clerk and councilmen Bubba
Hodge, J.R. Smith and Jimmy
Smith.
Questions about Center
Hill's unusually high voter
turnout (41 percent) and high
percentage of absentee voters
was the subject of a letter sent
last week by David
Theriaque, of the firm
Theriaque, Vorbeck and
Spain (tino representing
Sanders, Davidson and
Brown), to State Attorney
Brad King requesting an
investigation into the elec-
tion.
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. Election results
showed all three incumbents
received more votes by absen-
tee ballots than at the polling
place. Of 363 registered vot-
ers, there were 150 total bal-
lots cast, including 47 absen-
tee ballots.
Sanders, Davidson and
Brown claim members of the
city canvassing board and/or
staff members instructed vot-
ers not to vote for them, say-

County adopts taxing ordinances thin gsreme Ur

AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

On Tuesday, county com-
missioners adopted two ordi-
nances that would give the
board the option to create
taxing areas for lire services.
or MSTUs (municipal servic-
es taxing units).
Though the change would
alter the way fire services
are funded, Commission
Chairman Michael Francis
said it won't necessarily
change the amount of taxes
residents will pay.
"This will provide for two
taxing districts in the coun-
ty," Interim County
Administrator Sandra
Howell explained to the
board.
The two ordinances are the
same, except one addresses
Sumter County Fire Rescue
and one is for The Villages
Fire Rescue.
"This came about through
a look at the way that we fund
our fire services in Sumter
County," Howell said.
"Essentially, this will pro-
vide for two taxing areas in
the county that will return
the taxes collected in that
area back to the fire depart-
ment which serves that
area."
She said the ordinances
create "a mechanism that
will set up the MSTUs. It
does not make any taxes

door open for the board to

city clerk, the deputy city
clerk and members of the
city's police department
would be fired or otherwise
lose their jobs. Such state-
ments were made to improp-
erly intimidate, coerce or oth-
erwise induce city residents
to vote for defendants Bubba
Hodge, J.R. Smith, and Jimmy
Smith," according to the suit.
Also, the alleged "miscon-
duct and improper activities
corrupted the election
process and call into doubt
the legitimacy of the Dec. 5:
election," and "the number of
corrupted, coerced, improper
or illegal ballots ... is sufficient
to change or place in doubt
the results of the Dec. 5 elec-
tion."
The Center Hill Canvassing
Board (Diane Lamb, Mayor
Ralph Barry, Sr. and Wynne
Darulla) reported the follow-
ing election results: For Seat
1, Sanders received 60 votes
at the polling place but none
by absentee ballot. Hodge, his

Currently the board uses

es benefit unit. an assess-
ment ot'$63 per parcel with a
structure. to partly fund fire
services, according to
Hu\vell.
"The other portion of the
funding comes from general
fund."
Francis said the previous
County Commission re-view-
ed the way fire services are
funded and found that "the
fairer way to pay for this
would be to have the areas
served pay for their service.
'At the present, we're tak-
ing money out of the general
fund and moving it to the dis-
tricts and it doesn't provide
any kind of accounting. It
doesn't provide a way to real-
ly manage it."
Lake Panasoffkee resident
Dave Starnes asked the com-
mission to be fair with the
county's fire fees, saying he
supports user taxes but was
unsure about the MSTUs.
"I'm going to assume that
the properties that have the
most fire calls are the ones
that are under that home-
stead exemption," he said.
"So we're going to have a
whole lot of structures that
we support through our taxes
that really pay no taxes other
than the MSBU."
Commissioners unani-
mously voted to adopt both

their support.

the polling place and 35 by
absentee ballot.
Doug Cook, a former coun-
cil member who also chal-
lenged Hodge, received 14
votes at the polling place and
11 by absentee ballot.
In the race for Seat 3,
Davidson received 52 votes at
the polling place and two by
absentee ballot. J.R. Smith
received 33 at the polling
place and 38 by absentee bal-
lot. A third candidate, Billy
Bowles, received 14 votes at
the polling place and 7 by
absentee ballot
In the Seat 5 race, Brown
received 55 votes at the
polling place and two by
absentee ballot.
Jimmy Smith received 43
votes at the polling place and
45 by absentee ballot.
J.R. Smith said in an inter-
view with the Times last week
he was confident "everything

posed to. I have total confi-

MURDER

continued from Page 1

But as Sumter investigators
would eventually find out, just
before Marquardt was named
a suspect in the Tarrytown
murders, he was found not
guilty in Wisconsin of murder-
ing his own mother, Mary
Jane Marquardt. She was
killed in the same manner as
Wells and Ruiz shot and
stabbed in the throat days
earlier on March 13, 2000, in
Wisconsin.
The break in Sumter's cold
case came in June six years
after the murders when
Chippewa County, Wis.,
District Attorney Jon Theisen


made the connection between
the suspect he was prosecut-
ing and the Tarrytown mur-
ders.
After failing to convict
Marquardt for his mother's
murder, Theisen began
searching for who he believed
to be Marquardt's other vic-
tims.
Blood on one of the alleged
murder weapons, a knife
Marquardt was reportedly
carrying when he was arrest-
ed for his mother's murder,
also included blood of two
other persons, female blood
relatives, investigators have
said.
Theisen's Internet searches
for unsolved double homi-
cides, and those two relatives,
eventually led him to the
Sumter County Sheriff's
Office.

As he spoke to Brannen
about the Ruiz-Wells murders,
the men soon discovered
many similarities.
The sheriff's office did not
release to the public that the
women had been stabbed,
because the information was
"held back" to verify informa-
tion or confessions; Theisen
did not find out exactly how
the women were killed until,
he spoke with Brannen.
The DNA evidence from
Marquardt's knife was com-
pared and matched with
Ruiz's and Wells' "to the

Funeral Home

"How do I decide which funeral
home to call when the time comes?"


Aside from the requirement that all funeral homes be
licensed by the state, some basic questions you might ask
when selecting a funeral home include: Are they flexible
enough to handle your specific needs? Are decisions made
locally or from an out-of-town corporate office? Are they
full service? Do they sub-contract services such as
cremation or do they provide these options on-site?
Everyone has different priorities and questions about
funeral pre-planning. We invite your questions and we
will respect your priorities. Please call us for a no cost, no
obligation, no pressure appointment to get the facts on
how you can benefit from funeral pre-planning.


Plan today for peace of mind tomorrow!

Water shortage authority delegated .


Lexie Russano, Kashla Acosta, Davey Reddick (left to right) and
Aiden Russano (facing left), show off their artwork done by
clowns at the Thomas Langley Medical Center Laura Vickers
party on Saturday.


Davey Reddick, 4, of Wildwood, is shown undergoing some
major paint work at the medical center party.


The Southwest Florida
Water Management District
Governing Board recently
gave its executive director
authority to declare a water
shortage prior to the January
2007 Board meeting if hydro-
logic conditions continue to
worsen.
The Board acted because
of current dry conditions -
and the time span between
the Nov. 30-Dec. 1 meetings
and the next planned meet-
ing on Jan. 30.
"We may need to act before
the next board meeting,
depending on rainfall and
the state of our water
resources," said David L.
Moore, executive director.

South Sumter Middle School
and students pulled together
food baskets for local families
in need. Some of the students
from her Family Career
Community Leaders of
America (FCCLA) are shown
here with just a few of the
fruit baskets they provided.
The students are: (front row,
left to right) McKenzie
Rodriguez, Kaitlyn Dario,
Desiree' Mitchell and Sydney
Rodriguez; (back row, left to
right) Jacobs, Yyanah Moore,
Courtney Franklin and
Kayley Ellis.


We will continue to monitor
water levels and respond
accordingly."
Rainfall for the calendar
year through November is
down from nine to 15 inches
throughout the District: Flow
in the Hillsborough,
Withlacoochee and Peace
rivers has been below normal
since May. Although many
hydrologic indicators are
below normal, meteorologi-
cal forecasts predict a wetter
than normal winter and
spring, which would provide
much-needed relief.
"We're hoping that predic-
tion is right, but we can't
depend on it," said Moore.
"We need to be ready for any


possibilities heading into the
heart of the dry season."
The District reminds resi-
dents to follow current water-
ing restrictions and not waste
water inside or outside the
home. Year-round watering
restrictions in the. District
are the strongest in the state,
and some cities and counties
have even stricter local ordi-
nances. The keys are educa-
tion reminding residents
what the rules are and
enforcement of the restric-
tions by local governments.
If the executive director
determines that additional
District restrictions or other
response mechanisms may
be necessary, a public hear-


ing will be held to discuss thj.
proposed water shortage
declaration. Thus date, tinw
and location of any pubR
hearing would be promptly
posted in the Florida
Administrative Weekly and
on the District's Web site at
WaterMatters.org. If a water
shortage declaration occurs,
the District will use newspa-
per advertising, letters 'tJ
permit holders, and othel1-1H
ways to communicate '
changes to the general pub.

County commissioner last
week directed County
Attorney Randall Thornton
to draft an ordinance that
would eliminate county
"occupational licenses" and
set a public hearing to con-
sider it on Jan. 9.
Those licenses are now
labeled "local business tax"
by Florida statute, and the
county is not required to
have them, according to
Thornton.
But, that's. not the. main
problem.
In a Dec. 7 letter to County

Tom Swain said that the
county is spending about
$79,125 a year to collect and
handle these fees of only
$82,630 a year.
"It appears that our occu-
pational license sales in
Sumter County are a 'wash'

"Consequently, I think the
county could do as well with-

Thornton noted that

Wildwood hoop boys now 8-3


LARRY BUGG
'-- Times Correspondent

Last week, the Wildwood
High boys basketball team lost
two pf their three games.
Wildwood boys are now 8-3.
Monday, Dec. 11 Ocala
Trinity Catholic beat Wildwood
69-5,1.
Demetrice McCray had 20
points. Mike Hicks had 15.
"We got off to a good start,"


said coach Von Moreland. "We
led after the first quarter.
Demetrice sat out the whole
second quarter in foul trouble.
"They took the lead. We just
never could get up. They have
players who are 6-8 and 6-7.
They are a quality team."
Tuesday, Dec. 12, Wildwood
beat Leesburg First Academy
71-38 at Wildwood.
"We won pretty easy," said
Von Moreland. "First Academy.


Demetrice McCray had 13
points that night. Derrick
Williams had 13 also. Mike
Hicks and Tadrain Williams
both had 10. D.J. Als had 12
rebounds. He is a freshman.
"I was happy about that one.
I thought First Academy did a
good job. They were missing a
player. We were a little too ath-
letic and big for them."
Friday, Dec. 15 Mount Dora
High beat Wildwood 66-48.


McCray had 17 to lead the
Wildcats. Hicks had 11 points.
"We played tough our first
half," said Moreland. "We didn't
take care of the basketball. We
turned it over a few times too
many in the second half.
"I think we had nine in the
third quarter. We got down 12.
We played tough for a half. We
are turning it over too much."
Wildwood was to play
Clermont East Ridge High


there on Wednesday.
Results were not available at
press time.
The Wildcats can hope
Christmas. will change their
momentum and perhaps get
them back on the winning
track.
Wildwood will play in the
Eustis Christmas Tournament
on Dec. 27. They play the.host
team in the first game.
Leesburg and Orlando Jones


are also in the tournament
McCray is averaging just over
20 points. Hicks is averaging
around 12 points.
The Wildcats have problems
with some injuries.
Moreland said Kelvin
Jackson suffered a separated
shoulder during football season
and is still hurting. Matt
Rollerson is probably out for
the season with torn ligaments
in his ankle.

basketball coach Gary Russo
has to shake his head when he
thinks about his Raiders.
They can play defense. They
can rebound. They can pass.
Unfortunately, the girls have
the toughest time putting the
ball in the basket. That proba-
bly means a long and frustrat-
ing season for Russo and the
girls.
South Sumter played three
games last week, losing two
and winning one. The girls are
now 4-6 overall and 4-4 in
Class 4A district play.
Mount Dora Bible beat
South Sumter 67-31 Dec. 11 in
Mount Dora.
Tijuana Jordan had 13
points. Paulica Brown had 10
points but the Raiders had a
major problem besides shoot-
ing. '"Again, we shot 13 for 45,"
said South Sumter coach Gary
Russso. "We made 42
turnovers. They are a very
good basketball team. That
just put us away. "We played
well other than the turnovers.
When you can't score, it even-
tually hurts you."
South Sumter beat


South Sumter girls
will play Oak Ridge
Thursday at 4:30.
p.m. at the Mount-
Dora High Christmas
Tournament.


Hernando Dec. 12 in
Brooksville 48-21. Jordan had
18 points and Brown had 10
points.
The Raiders managed to
win despite more poor shoot-
ing. "We were still 21 of 62
from the field," said Russo.
"We were five of 14 at the free
throw line. We were ahead 15-
14 at one time. We held them
to two points in the third quar-
ter and four points in the
fourth quarter.
"Our : shooting didn't
improve much but we were
able to stop them." That was a
district game.
Friday, Pasco beat South
Sumter 40-23 at home in adis-
trict contest. Jordan had six
points to lead the Raiders.
"We were 9 of 55 from the
field," Russo said. "The bad
part was we were tied 14-14 at


half. We had four points in the
third quarter and five points
in the fourth. Our inability to
score hurt us. If we eventually
learn how to score, we could
be a decent team. We play
hard defense but it gets to a
point where you have to score
and -we can't do
it. It just hurts us." ,
South Sumter was to play
Tuesday against East Ridge.
They will play Oak Ridge
Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at the
Mount Dora High Christmas
Tournament. South Sumter is
guaranteed at least three
games in the tournament.
Eustis, Pine Ridge, Madison
County, and Mount Dora are
also in the tournament
"We just have to get better
and learn how to score,"
Russo said. "It's frustrating
from the standpoint that they
do so many other things well.
They will have to work at it.
They don't play basketball
after the season is over."
If Santa can come through,
the Raiders may find them-
selves opening up jump shots
for Christmas.
If Santa doesn't come
through, the poor shooting
will make for a bleak New
Year.

With this thought in mind I company of many relatives


and I think what I remember
most about those
Christmases was the fantastic
meals my Mama always pre-
pared. She would in fact start
cooking cakes and pies a
whole month or so before
Christmas along with all
kinds of fantastic cookies and
candy She could sure make
some mighty fine divinity and
fudge candy and her most
famous cake was a great big
lane cake that Shug still has
the receive for and she
makes me and my brother
Felix a big one each year.
You know back in those
days we .set off a lot of fire-
works to celebrate
Christmastime and thinking
back, we didn't do all that
much noise making on the
Fourth of July as folks do
these days. You could actual-
ly order by mail all kinds of
big firecrackers, cherry
bombs, sky rockets, Roman
candles and bunch of other
types of out and out explo-
sives.


Times have sure changed
and in many cases for the bet-
ter as I remember one cold
Christmas morning I had a
big cherry bomb go off in my
hand and you can believe my
Christmas day was not enjoy-
ing all the gifts I had
received. I was in pure agony
for a couple of days and it is a
pure out and out miracle I
did not blow off a couple of
fingers as those cherry bombs
were not anything less than
miniature charges of dyna-
mite.
A lot of folks over the years
have asked me for advice on
buying a loved one who does
a lot of fishing and hunting a
Christmas gift. Most of the
time I advise them to get a
gift certificate as we hunters
as a whole are a little on the
particular side when it comes
to the gear we prefer.
On the other hand there
are many things that can be
purchased for the hunter and
fisherman whereas the giver
cannot go wrong. When it


come to clothes most folks
have a pretty good idea as to
size the person receiving the
gift is and with a little snoop-
ing the type of camo pattern
can be easily discovered. We
hunters are very particular
and choosy as to name brands
and patterns we prefer and
there are a lot to choose from.
In choosing a hunter's
camo or other clothing,
always check it to see if it
makes noise when rubbed
together. By this I mean that
many materials when rubbed
together will actually create a
noise that wild critters can
easily detect from long way
off. Most of the materials,
however, used in hunting
clothing are quiet these days
but it a small matter that
needs to be taken into consid-
eration when buying a gift.
Unless you know exactly
what type of gun or bow the
hunter wants, a gift certifi-
cate is in well in order
because with these types of
high-dollar items there are


way too many technical cpn-
cerns the serious hunter
demands for someone to lust
purchase a major high-dollar
item right off the shelf.
This rule of thumb lso
goes for fishing equipment
but the good news is there are
may small sporting goods
stores, especially in stall
towns, that can give the buyer
assistance. In a lot of cases,
the store owner will actually
personally know the person
the gift is going to be for-and
can help the buyer make'the
perfect selection.
Stocking stuffers are
always welcome and a new
American made knife, com-
pass, warm socks, caps, fish-
ing lures, and any of dozens
of other pieces of fislfing
equipment can always'be
used.
Anyway I hope all of you
have the best ever Christmas
and New Year and none of us
for one second forgets the
real reason for this wonder-
ful season.

,'Container Gardening
Container gardening is very
-versatile and continues to
"increase in popularity.
_1pepending on the pot size,
lrnost plants will grow success-
hilly in containers.
You need to use a good pot-
ling mix. Have drain holes in
the bottom of the planter and
S d not let the pot sit in a
& aucer of water. Water when-
eer the soil an inch below
A~he -surface feels dry.
Fertilize with a slow-
--brelease fertilizer four times
Scper year. When watering,
?,allow the water to drain out
brthe bottom holes to assure
c..horough saturation. On the
dheavy plants and ones that
isneed to be moved when
-ovwatered; I suggest. a plant
standd with wheels, which also
c -! comes in handy to help in
!-Tiloving the plants into a safe
area when a freeze is fore-
''casted.
Containers also can include
hanging baskets. Try to use
interesting flowers and
plants. An excellent conversa-
tion piece is the staghorn
fern. It is an air plant? which
-does not require soil, and can
-be placed in a hanging basket
with peat moss.
A couple of my favorite con-
tainer palms are ponytail
-palms. You can purchase
them from a single palm to a
triple. I suggest the triple and
plant it in a shallow bowl
planter. Mine is 24 inches
wide and 10 inches deep. I
also like the lady palm. This is
an excellent slow-growing
tropical-looking plant that
does well in partial shade. I
have tour of them as they are
Smy overall favorite for use in
outside entryways and patio
.,gardens, whether in a con-
Stainer or planted in the
ground.
SFor color, don't forget annu-
al plants such as periwinkle,
Impatiens, verbena, marigold,
r cosmos, geraniums and on
and on. Buy your planters
First, and then let your imagi-
rination be your guide.
-- If Iyou'retryingto create the
tropicall feel, don't forget to
:. iIc lude ferns and at least one
^ elephant ear. Be careful, and
Spread the label, as the ele-
a.lphant ear will get large. Mine
l'is five feet by four feet and is
.only one year old.
'- Dpn't forget a few tomato
S plants and, if you like to use
fresh herbs, you're living in
San area where there is no
excuse for not having at least


a small herb garden.
Your palms and other trees
may be planted at this time;
! but you'll need to wait until
Slate February fqr your other
' plantings. That does not, how-
ever, prohibit you from the
planning, designing and pur-
'chasing the containers.

said.
Vehicles were backed up on


Main Street from the entrance

Because the project is ongo-

They're already talking
about next year, according to
Casey. who said they're think-

"Unfortunately, many peo-
ple are so focused on getting
in shape, they sign up for a
membership without bother-
ing to read the fine print of a
contract," Bronson said.
"But there are issues that
are covered that consumers
really need to know about
from the onset, such as under
what conditions they can
cancel, what activities are
covered in the membership
and other aspects that may
be important to the con-
sumer's needs."
The law provides con-
sumers with the right to can-
cel a contract for certain rea-
sons including:. cancellation

vide, within 30 days, a facility
of equal quality located with-
in five miles; if a person
becomes physically unable to
use most of the services for
which they contracted, until
the disability ends.
Bronson also recommends
consumers follow these tips
before signing a contract:
Call the department's
helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) to make sure
the health studio is regis-
tered and to check its com-
plaint history.
Find out if the studio has
posted a bond with the
department, as most that col-


lect fees in advance are
required to do.
Prior to joining, ask
about the club's cancellation
policy should you move or
become physically unable to
use the facility.
Before signing up, visit
the club during the hours you
intend to use it to determine
whether it is overcrowded
and the equipment you plan
to use is available.
Find out if any of the
services offered require an
additional fee.
