Though that may be 4 com-

destroyed the mobile home

"It was a blessing from God
that we weren't home," she

Homes planned on alleged sewage dumpsite


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

A developer is planning
about 90 homes in Oxford, but
one neighboring property
owner says the land has been
a known dumping ground for
human waste for years.
Since 1999, Dave Lindsay
has lived on property adjacent
to the proposed development
site near The Villages north of
County Road 466.
He told county commission-
ers last week he is concerned
about the welfare of the devel-
opment's future residents.
"For three years of our liv-
ing there, we witnessed some
septic tank companies dump-
ing human waste and lye on
the site ... I believe there is a


Sumter County Planning and Development Director Roberta Rogers said
she did not know whether there was a licensed dumpsite on the property.


human waste dumpsite that is
right on the corner of the
property."
He said other residents
have witnessed the dumping
for years.
"The neighbors, who've
been there longer than I have,
said they've been doing this
for nearly 16 years," he told
the board.
Sumter County Planning
and Development Director
Roberta Rogers said she did
not know whether there was a
licensed dumpsite on the


property.
"However, it is an industry
practice for septic tank com-
panies to take the waste, treat
it and then spread it on prop-
erty," she said.
"Currently, we require peo-
ple to get what we call a spe-
cial use permit on different
sites to pursue that activity."
After hearing Lindsay's
comments and Rogers' report,
county commissioners voted
unanimously in favor of a
request by WPIC Investments,
Inc. to amend the county's


comprehensive plan, chang-
ing the property's land use
designation from agricultural,
which allows one home per
ten acres, to low density resi-
dential, on which two homes
per acre are allowed.
However, according to coun-
ty documents, "the developer
will limit the number of units
on the site to 90 or fewer.
"He has committed to
improving County Road 101
from his north property line to
County Road 104. The existing
lane widths will be


increased."
Rogers said this request by
the developer was submitted
to the state Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) in
August and, in September,
DCA issued the county its
objections, recommendations
and comments.
"In the report that we have
received back from the
Department of Community
Affairs, they did have some
concerns," she said.
Though county staff
believed the applicant's pro-
posed road improvements
would be adequate, Rogers
said, DCA asked for a traffic
study on U.S. 301, which was
provided to commissioners.

Another

armed

robbery at

adult store

BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Armed with high-powered
assault rifles, three masked
gunmen robbed an adult
entertainment business near
Wildwood early last Thursday
morning, taking an undeter-
mined amount of money.
The robbery is the third this
year in which armed gunmen
have robbed the X-Mart Adult
Supercenter, at 973 E. State
Road 44.
The most recent robbery
happened about 3:20 a.m. on
Dec. 21 while two employees
were at work, according to
sheriff's Capt. Gary Brannen.
The men entered the store
and threatened to harm the
employees if they did not turn
over money in the cash regis-
ter, according to Brannen.

work all day, but her boss let her
go home early, at 11 am. When
she got home, she and her hus-
band decided to take a drive
with the children to Dade City
to deliver a payment for their
computer even though they
could see the weather was get-
ting worse.
"We never do anything like
that," she said.
About 15 minutes after they
left, they received a frantic call
from other nearby family mem-
bers and they got the news that
their house had been
destroyed.
Trees were knocked down,
and an oak tree near the front of
the Crawfords' mobile home
seems to have twisted and
snapped near the base of the
trunk, falling and crushing an
end of the home. Flowers from
the cemetery on the other side
of the highway were blown into
the front yard.
On Tuesday, debris still lit-
tered the yard, even after an
estimated 100 friends, family
members and passersby came
Monday afternoon to help.
Jennifer said she doesn't
know whether it was a tornado
that caused the destruction or
something else, but she was
touched by the generosity of
those around her.
Once word got out about what
happened to the Crawfords'
home, neighbors and many per-
fect strangers came with chain
saws on Christmas to help clean
up, Jennifer said.
Others brought their
Christmas dinners and two

While inside the business
the robbers destroyed the sur-
veillance cameras, he said.
No one was injured during
the robbery, Brannen said.
The suspects used weapons
that aren't typically seen in
robbery cases, he said. Two of
the men are believed to have
been wielding AK47 assault'
rifles. The third man was
armed with a black semi-auto-
matic handgun.
"The AK-47 assault rifles'
are pretty unique and power-
ful rifles," Brannen said.
"They are military-grade
weapons that can do a lot of
damage."
Investigators are trying to
determine if the X-Mart rob-
bery is connected to a Lake
County robbery that hap-
pened later the same day.
The Washington Mutual
Bank on State Road 50, in
Clermont, was robbed by gun-
men about 9 a.m., he said.
"We're working with the
Lake County Sheriff's Office
to determine if the two are
connected," Brannen said.


strangers stopped by Monday
and handed her $100.
The family seems to have lost
many of their belongings that
were either blown out of the
uninsured 1984 singlewide
mobile home, or wet from
Monday's rain. On Tuesday,
some of the children's toys
could be seen scattered across
the yard.
'A lot of our clothes are wet
and they have glass in them, but
I'm going to the Laundromat
tomorrow," she said.
The children, ages 3 to 16,
have stayed calm and support-
ive through the ordeal, she said.
"Last night I told them,
'everything is going to be OK'
My one son said, 'I know.'
"I have wonderful kids."
She said the American Red
Cross arranged for the family to
have three hotel rooms in
Bushnell for three days, but she
doesn't know where the family
will go from there. She hopes
something will happen to help
the family.
"We have to be out of the
hotel by Thursday," she said.
"No matter what, we'll all be
fine.
"I just take it moment to
moment That's all you can do."
Jennifer can be reached at
(352) 308-1128.
Though similar weather was
reported in other counties, in
Sumter, the damaging weather
seemed to be confined to the
south end of the county Reports
indicate that another Linden
home was destroyed in the
storm.
In Center Hill, uprooted trees
and tree limbs could be seen
scattered along Virginia Avenue
and a patch of large trees were
knocked down along King's
Highway. A home was also


The suspects are described
as three black males, all wear-
ing masks. All three suspects
are of thin build (between 130
and 140 pounds) and about 20
years old. They range in
height from 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 8.
Anyone with information
regarding this robbery or any
other unsolved felony crime
should call Crime Line at
(800) 423-TIPS (8477). Callers
may be eligible for a reward of
up to $1,000. Callers may
remain anonymous.
Investigators are also trying
to determine if the robbery is
related to past robberies at X-
Mart.
"There could be a connec-
tion but it's too early to say,"
Brannen said.
In July, four men armed
with weapons .robbed the
business wearing T-shirts over
their faces to hide their iden-
tities.
The suspects took money
from the cash register and the
safe and threatened two store
employees.
In April, a similar robbery
occurred at the X-Mart when
three men got away with an
undetermined amount of
money after threatening store
employees with a small hand-
gun.

show that storm conditions
began to turn destructive in
south Sumter about noon on
Christmas Day.
The storm was created as a

Wind gusts during afternoon
hours were estimated at 40 to 45
mph, with hourly rates of rain at
one to two inches, according to
the National Weather Service.

DCA "also wanted informa-
tion on the impact of this resi-
dential development on the
school system," according to
Rogers.
She reported to the com-
mission the proposed devel-
opment's projected impact on
the Sumter County School
Board, which could leave the
developer footing the bill to
provide room for additional
elementary school students.


Sumter Electric Cooperative
(SECO) reported power outages
during the storm.
The majority of outages hap-
pened between noon and 1 p.m.
on Monday when 1,813 Sumter
customers lost power.
For the entire day, about 2,897
SECO customers in Sumter
experienced outages.
All electricity services were
restored by 8:30 p.m. that
evening, according to a SECO
representative.


"Information was received
from the school board that
indicates that currently in the
northern part of the county,
there is available capacity in
the high school and in the
intermediate school. .In the
elementary school, this would
bring it slightly over the 90
percent level of service
capacity that was adopted
recently when we did the
school concurrency.
"In that case, when this
development gets ,to the
development phase, it would
(need) to provide a propor-
tionate share of their impact
to the school board."

because of his high academic
achievement and thirst for
international travel. He sub-
mitted letters of recommenda-
tion and successfully complet-
ed an interview process.
Through challenging. work-
shops, Oliver will learn leader-
ship, skills, set personal goals
and learn to step outside his
comfort zone.

team to Honduras."


Oliver strives to make good
grades and maintain positive
relationships with family,
friends and teachers.
He notes the importance of
his planned trip; "If we
become friendly with
teenagers from other coun-
tries, then when we grow up,
positive relationships have
already been established
between the countries."

wants to be a blessing to oth-
ers, as others have been a


blessing to him.
He recently traveled with
his family on a church mission
to Honduras where he said
international travel was "awe-
some."
The travel was an intense
hands-on education.
"Over 40 percent of the pop-
ulation of Honduras doesn't
know where their next meal is
coming from. It is so different
than where we live and so
intensely sad."
While the trip is coordinat-
ed, funding is not provided.

A true experience:


Dade Battle relived


If you want to experience a
unique adventure this holiday
season, be sure to visit Dade
Park in Bushnell for the annual
reenactment of Dade's
Battle.
Set for Dec. 30 and
Dec. 31, the event prom-
ises to be entertaining as
thousands of spectators i
watch while the historic
Dec. 28, 1835 battle is
reenacted by hundreds
of historians and re-
enactors, clad in 'period,
costumes. B
The event is a great REI
opportunity to relive -..
Florida's historic past as
the battle, which became known
as Dade's Massacre, recreates the
ambush of Major Francis Dade,
seven officers and 100 soldiers by
180 Seminole warriors.

With over 500 varieties, hollies are
one of the most common land-
scape plants in the United
States. Although several vari-
eties are native to the United .
States, many of them originat-
ed from South America and
Asia.
Hollies' beautifully shaped,
shiny leaves are evergreen, .
with the female plants pro- :
during berries while male
plants do not. Don't feel badly, -
however, fellows, as female
plants will not have berries
unless pollinated by the
males. Bees may carry the JEI
pollen from distances of up to Po-
two miles.
Hollies' diversity in size
and shape range from trees to dwarf
spreading plants. But just because a
shrub is called a dwarf, don't assume it
will remain small. The dwarf is only rel-
ative to the larger species of hollies that
can obtain heights of 40 feet and widths
of 20 feet Now that'll fill up your porch
planter! The dwarf varieties average five
feet high by five feet wide. The majority
of the dwarf varieties will not have
berries as they are primarily male
plants.
You can plant container-grown hollies
any time of the year. Water the root ball
for a day or two before planting. As with
all plantings, care should be taken to
plant at the same depth as previously
grown. Many trees and shrubs die due to
being planted too deep, causing trunk
rot
Water the plant thoroughly to settle the
soil, also removing air from around the
roots. Organic mulch added to the soil
surface will conserve moisture and help
keep weeds away. Keep your mulch
materials at least three inches from the
plant's trunk or the mulch itself can
cause trunk rot. After approximately
three weeks, add slow-release fertilizer
with a ratio of approximately 15-5-15
according to the manufacturer's recom-
mendations, or other products for acid-


loving plants. If the hollies are grown
among palms, a palm fertilizer with at
least 30 percent slow-release contents
will be fine. Keep in mind
palm roots will extend thirty
feet from the trunk
As with most landscape
plants, diseases and common
plant pests are best avoided
.... by creating proper growing
conditions, with adequate
light, fertilization and irriga-
tion, including proper soil
drainage. Most common
insect pests can be treated
.", with horticultural oil sprayed
RRY thoroughly twice, six to ten
TER days apart
Hollies require little prun-
ing, except to keep them
pleasing in appearance and size.I per-
sonally have many hollies. There are five
that ring an elm tree in my front yard and
eight hollies spaced four feet apart on
the north side of my home that are grow-
ing into a hedge.
Hollies remind me of Christmas
wreaths and other beautiful decorations.
I was unable to grow them in Michigan
because of the cold temperatures so I do
appreciate them here in Florida. Happy
Holidays. Credit goes to the University of

Safety is a key factor for turkey


During the Christmas holiday
you are busy preparing your
families' favorite foods and
you want to enjoy the
food you prepare. Safety _
is a key factor to keep in
mind when preparing all
your food but I would
like to address turkey
safety in this article.
With the latest salmonel-
la outbreak you need to
use extra precautions
when preparing your
holiday bird.
What is Salmonella?
Salmonella bacteria can MAR
be found in many differ- MAD
ent places and in a vari-
ety of animal species.
Salmonella is most frequently
found in foods such as raw meats,
particularly poultry. It can also be
transferred to soil, water and
kitchen surfaces through contami-
nation. The symptoms of
Salmonella Infection include:
cramps, diarrhea, fever, headache,
nausea, and vomiting. Symptoms
usually develop within three days
of eating contaminated food. If not
treated, most people experience
full recovery within one week For
more information about Salmonella
and preventing the infection, visit
the following website:
http://solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu.
When preparing your turkey fol-
low these safety guidelines: When


you purchase your turkey, figure
one pound per person. Thaw your
turkey properly and remember to
remove the giblet bag
from the inside of the
turkey, thaw the turkey in
its original wrap on a tray
placed in the bottom of
the refrigerator. Allow
.B about 24 hours of defrost
time for every 5 pounds of
a turkey A 20-pound turkey
will take 4 to 5 days to
thaw. Do not thaw on the
counter. Thawing at room
temperature increases
HA risk of bacteria growth.
AOX You can thaw your turkey
M in cold water by submerg-
ing the bird in its original
wrapping and changing the water
every 30 minutes. Allow 30 minutes
per pound to defrost a turkey in
cold water. Do not use warm or hot
water.
If you stuff your turkey, follow
these guidelines: Never stuff the
turkey in advance. Once you have
decided on a stuffing recipe, mix
ingredients quickly and lightly stuff
the washed cavity just before plac-
ing the bird in the oven. Allow /2 to
% cup stuffing per pound of turkey.
Keep in mind stuffing needs room
to expand during cooking, so this is
why you do not over stuff. Stuffing
must be cooked to a minimum tem-
perature of 165 degrees F and
should be removed from the cavity


of the bird to a separate serving
dish before carving the turkey. Do
not leave stuffing out for more than
2 hours. Refrigerate leftover stuff-
ing and use within 1 to 2 days. Be
sure to reheat your leftover stuffing
to 165 degrees F before serving.
When cooking the turkey, make
sure you have a roasting pan large
enough for the turkey and the juices
that will cook out. Dark meat takes
longer to cook; so when test tem-
perature, insert the thermometer in
the thickest spot of the turkey thigh.
The meat thermometer should reg-
ister a temperature of 180 degrees
F or higher when the turkey is
done. Allow the turkey to sit for at
least 20 minutes before carving;
this allows time for the juices to
redistribute and the turkey will be
easier to carve. Store leftovers ,in
the refrigerator; remember the
safest margin is 2 hours from the
time you take the bird from the
oven before you store in the refrig-
erator Leftovers will keep in the
refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.

Listerine may not be a substitute
for flossing. However, Pfizer is
the master of the floss.
There have been many crazy weeks
with stories that sit at the
helm of lunacy. And, all in --
all, just another week at
the pharmaceutical indus-
try and the highly politi-
cized week at the Federal ,
Food and Drug .
Administration (FDA) ..
both provide the stage for a
play of the absurd.
Near the end of every
year, I poll the readers for
some of their favorite DA
columns, broken into cate- ROI
gories of serious, educa-
tional and humor.
This week, we have one
new item added to the script.
However, I decided to re-run it It was
one of the most requested columns of
the year. I do hope you enjoy it.
Pharmaceutical companies are
constantly playing hardball with
patients' physicians, the government
and others in the same industry.
Luckily for all, the FDA did not have
to make a decision about this matter;
a U.S. District Court Judge handled it.
This story concerns "the big P"
Pfizer., and, Johnson and Johnson
(J&J). The situation involved Pfizer
and its friends from Madison Avenue,
as well as the mouthwash manufac-
tured by Pfizer, Listerine.
In June 2004, in a robust attempt to


add to Pfizer's already deep pockets,
they opted to include Listerine's
alleged additional benefit of substitut-
ing for flossing. So, with new and slick
media buys and an addi-
tion to its label, the big P
was off to increase its sales
", of the product. Mind you,
at present, only 160 million
bottles of Listerine are
sold annually
Hey, why not shoot for a
quarter of a billion bot-
tles? The only thing that
g was shot was Pfizer's foot
4 Along comes J&J, the
,.N manufacturer of string,
IAN excuse me, dental floss.
After all, in 1898 J&J was
the first to take out a
patent on string sorry, I
mean dental floss.
Now, follow me closely folks, it gets
better. J&J's subsidiary McNeil-PPC
actually markets the string, darn it,
you know what I mean.
So, off to U.S. District court for J&J
and the Big P
U.S. District Court Judge Denny
Chin cleared up the matter on behalf
of "we the people." Thank goodness.
I take my mouthwash seriously, for
true. Basically, and I ever so loosely
have captured the essence of the rul-
ing. A wash is a wash and string is
string. A wash cannot take the place of
string, nor do the job of string.
Judge Chin concluded that both
companies were in the same market


or "head-to-head competition," and
that we, the people, who may not be
regular "flossers" (folks, this is not a
real word, but if J&J could obtain a
patent on string for teeth, I can create
words), "would be easily enticed,"
believing that one could gain the same
benefit from a wash as from a piece of
string.
Pfizer received an advertising
cease-and-desist order, and is no
longer allowed to mislead us and
unfairly dip into the pockets of J&J.
End of the story. No, not quite yet, it
gets even better.
Pfizer indicated that it might
appeal Judge Chin's decision.
However, in the meantime, the Big P
has millions of bottles of Listerine on
shelves across this nation.
Unfortunately, they have labels that
are now considered not only mislead-
ing, but also illegal.
So what to do? Pfizer has sent out
4,000 sales representatives with labels
to cover up their unsubstantiated
claims concerning plaque and floss-
ing. I know that I am sleeping better. I
hope, with this matter clarified, you
will, too.
So, good folks, get out to your
favorite retail grocery or pharmacy
store this week and meet your Pfizer
representative.

A visit with Santa


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

The Florida Department of
Probation and Parole in
'Sumter County put together
420 bags of goodies for local
children, made plans to head
for the Bushnell Christmas
tree at South Sumter High
School and even invited
Santa.
Then they invited kids from
all over the place to join them.
The bags were filled with
goodies like bouncy balls,
candy, flying airplanes and
stuffed animals seven toys in
all.
It was all part of their annu-
al effort to provide for kids in
the community.
It's an annual tradition
that's been taking place for
years.
Originated by the Kiwanis
Club, it was picked up by Fred
Dietz and his staff at the pro-
bation office years ago.
While Dietz has retired, he
is still leading the way as the
group maps out the event. In
late summer and early fall,
they begin planning a night at


the tree on the South Sumter
High School campus.
They begin considering toys
and looking at new things,
said coordinator and assistant
to Dietz, Cindy Jackson.
They provide snacks cook-
ies and hot chocolate and
this year they had "More than
we've ever had. It was huge,"
said Jackson.
"Mr. Dietz was thrilled."
They also had the benefit of
music and good weather.
"It just means putting back
into the community and see-
ing happy faces," said Jackson
of what the event means to
them.
One youngster climbed up
on Santa's lap and said she
didn't want anything for
Christmas, except for little
Trenton Duckett to come
home safely
The Sumter County toddler
has been missing for several
weeks.
"That got everybody.
Everything kind of stopped
for a minute," Jackson said.
The entire probation office
gets in on the action and the
community donates funds to
help make it happen.


"We all enjoy it."
As for those who give, she
said, "They really, really are
wonderful. Every year we ask
and every they give."

Wildwood boys top East Ridge ELEMENTARY


58-44 despite turnovers sm...S
JL~~~ ---a---HM:-_-.-^-a ;.^ gt~^'.'! SrS


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

The Wildwood High boys
basketball team had a curious
statistic recently. The Wildcat
team beat Clermont East
Ridge High 58-44 Wednesday,
Dec. 20 in Clermont.
Demetrice McCray led
Wildwood with 17 points,
three steals and three assists.
Mike Hicks scored 13 points
,and five rebounds.
Wildwood High is 7-3 over-
all and they are 3-2 in Class
3A-District 7.
The odd numbers showed
Wildwood making 16
turnovers in the first half and
only four in the second half.
That is odd.
"I didn't think we played a
.particularly good first half,"
;said Wildwood head coach


Von Moreland. "Turnovers
plagued us in the first half. We
did a better job playing in the
second half.
"We had 20 for the game but
16 in the first half. We only
had four in the second half. At
halftime, they were leading
30-26.
"McCray didn't play the first
half and had all of his points
in the second half. He helps
us out quite a bit. He had to
miss a practice for a good rea-
son. I didn't realize it was
quite that drastic.
"I think we did play better
defense. We held them to 14
points in the second half.
"McCray had missed a prac-
tice so he sat out the first
half."
Since McCray averages 22
points per game, obviously
the team is better off with him


on the floor.
Wildwood will play Eustis
Dec. 27, 7 p.m., in the Eustis
Christmas Tournament
Hicks is averaging 12
points.
"I think we have had times
when we rebounded the ball
real well," Moreland said.
"The biggest things we have to
work on are our decision-
making and ball handling
skills. We are also working on
trying to get better defensive-
ly and trying to play good
team good defense.
"We have won seven and
lost three. It's not too bad. We
want to try to step up and win
some big games. We lost dis-
trict games to Trinity Catholic
and Mount Dora. We have
some ground to make up. It
will take hard work and
determination to make up


that ground. We have to focus
on trying to make up the
ground. Our other loss was to
Leesburg, another pretty
good team. If you are going to
have a good year, you need to
beat some of the good teams
you play."
"We are hoping to enjoy
some time off here at
Christmas. We want to do well
at Eustis. We lost Matt
Rollerson, who had surgery to
repair torn ligaments.
He will be out for the sea-
son.
"Kelvin Jackson has a left
shoulder that was separated.
It could go out at any time. If
it does, we will have to set
Kelvin out."
Wildwood will play East
Ridge on Jan. 5 at Wildwood.
Wildwood plays Mount Dora
on home on Tuesday, Jan. 9.


South Sumter girls shooting


On Monday, Dec. 18, students, faculty, staff and more than 150

everyone joined in at the end of the program to sing four songs
together. The program ended with a surprise visit from Mr. and

Friday, Mount Dora beat
South Sumter 48-35 and it was

"The key in that game was
we were down 42-17 at the half
and we were able to hold them
to just six points in the second
half," Russo said. "Because of


a slippery floor with a mal-
functioning air conditioner,
players were slipping. We had
to play the final four minutes
with a running clock We were
six for 22 in the first half. The
running clock killed us. .

School. Each student was given a present to tide them over until
the big day and an opportunity to inform Santa of the status of
their behavior, as well as to make certain he knew exactly what
they wanted for Christmas. All the children were very excited to
be able to visit with Santa. He's shown here with student Julian
Ayala, his younger sister Julissa and his mom Crystal.

Watching the beavers in British Columbia


On my recent trip to
British Columbia, I had
the grand experience
to see a lot of beavers. The
well-known, four-
legged species and
another type of m
beaver that I will
tell you all about a VF
little further on in
this article. l.
If you have been .
keeping up with
any of the previous
seven chapters
relating to my visit
at the Crying Girl
Ranch, operated by JA
long-time friend AD
Harold Lewis, you ---
are acutely aware
by now that the ranch is quite
a long ways out in the woods
and way out in the middle of a
vast but beautiful part of this
world.
Anyway, as to the beavers,
there is no shortage of them
on the Graham River and the
many tributaries that feed the
river. Folks, I don't have the
foggiest idea how big beavers
get but up where we were
fishing apparently they have
not been trapped for decades.
They are huge.
When swimming, if beavers
are alarmed they instantly
dive under the water and slap
their tails hard on the surface
of the water. In doing so, they
create a very loud sound and
the sound resulting from this
action kind of reminds me of
the loud splooshing sound
that is made when a great big
rock or some other heavy
object is chunked off of a
bridge or high cliff into deep
water.
Actually, the beaver living
near the river didn't pay a
whole lot of attention to us as
we moved along the river
bank fishing but when
Harold's dogs got anywhere
close to where they were
swimming they would slap the
water with their tails and you
could hear the sounds from a
great distance even though
you could actually see them.
When one of the beaver would
dive under the surface they
would swim a ways and then
pop back up and go on about
their business doing whatever
it is that beavers do.
From all I read over the
years, beaver were almost
trapped to extinction in many
areas of the American West
and the beaver fur was made


4I


into the fancy top hats that the
higher-class dudes wore back
in the seventeen and early
eighteen hundreds. They
were the rage of
fashion until a
manmade material
was eventually
used to make the
hats.
The beaver popu-
lations have made
a good comeback
ands their numbers
are large in some
states. Where they
are numerous, they
MIE can do vast damage
AMS to the trees that are
--- growing close to the
rivers and creeks.
There is a trapping season for
beavers in many states to con-
trol their large numbers but I
don't know what is being
made with the fur these days
but it apparently is very luxu-
rious and in demand around
the world.
Beaver are most active in
the nighttime in most of the
places where I have seen
them. Around Harold's place,
they paid little or attention to
human presence at all.
They are a lot fun to watch
as they go about their daily
activities and you would be
amazed to see the size of a
tree they can bring down with
their perseverance and sharp
teeth, which never stop grow-
ing.
The most amazing ability
they have is the dam a family
of beaver build. It is a truly
engineering feat. How they
can actually stop a fast flow-
ing creek is hard to imagine if
you don't actually see the
work they perform. Believe
you me; they can bitterly flood
large areas with their huge
dams. I don't really under-
stand why they build dams in
the first place but I think it
may have something to do
with creating new feeding
areas that they can access by
swimming.
Anyway, as to the other
beaver I mentioned, it is an
airplane. I don't know the real
manufacture's official name
for the plane but from all I can
gather these airplanes have
been around for a long time
and they are tough, depend-
able and the plane of choice
for many of the bush pilots of
the northwest.
One day while at Harold's,
one of the beaver planes

Columbia.


showed up to transport a
bunch of lumber to a hunting
camp a hundred or so miles
from Harold's place. The lum-
ber had been dropped off by
truck because Harold's place
is where the road ends and
anything going any further in
to the wilderness has to be
taken by horse back or by
snowmobile or airplane or
helicopter
There is a small airstrip
that has been cleared at
Harold ranch that the bush
pilots frequently have to use
to pick up supplies and any-
thing that needs to be taken

into the wilderness. The
beaver plane that landed
quickly got Doyle Reynolds,
Jimmy (my son) and my atten-
tion as we all have airboats
and we wanted to check out
the engine on the plane and
look it over from stem to stem.
The massive and powerful
radial engine has nine cylin-
ders creating a lot of power to
make short takeoffs with a
heavy load. The beaver that
landed at Harold's could
carry a thousand pounds of
weight with ease.
We all helped the pilot
quickly load the plane with


NEW LOCATION

lumber and the boards were
twelve feet long. The lumber
was loaded in from the tail
end of the plane and went all
the way up to the passengers'
seat. When the estimated
weight load was met the pilot
strapped it down and started
the engine .and after revving
up the engine full blast he was
airborne in short order


The plane had tires on it so
big that they could have been
used on a swamp buggy we
have here in Florida. The big
tires allow the pilot to land
just about anywhere that is
long enough to take off and
land. It was amazing to watch
the skills of the pilot, as he
would take off and land.

- criterCHwnrT SECO: 'a best place to work'


Sumter electric cooperative
(SECO) was honored at the
annual recognition ceremony
acknowledging "the best
places to work in Lake and
Sumter counties" held at mis-
sion inn on Dec. 21.
SECO was named a best
place to work for a private
employer with more than 200
employees.
SECO CEO Jim Duncan said,
"this is a significant accom-
plishment and the competition
is tough. It is not a popularity
contest, since the winners are
selected by the firm that devel-
oped the 'best places to work'
concept. All candidates are
judged on a very complex sur-
vey that covers virtually all
workplace-related criteria."


Duncan noted that the s r-
vey covers the key components
that are important to employ-
ees including compensation,
benefit packages, training,
time off, turnover and more.
He continued, "We have
hard working employees here
at SECO. We know they appre-
ciate and value their work-
place because of our own
internal employee surveys.
However, it has now been offi-


cially certified by a respected,
independent third party and
we are very grateful for this
honor."
"Employees who have good
places in which to work tend to
deliver the very best in terms
of great customer service. I'm
proud of our employees and
the excellent job they do day in
and day out for our cus-
tomers," concluded SECO's
CEO.

Bumper wants a home for the New Year.


Trying to find a


home for Bumper


W hat will the New Year
hold in store for
Bumper?
Less than a year
old, the black
Labrador mix's life
didn't start out so A
well.
Born a stray,, he
wandered "the ,
streets for six
months until hi -
unfortunate acci- .
dent.
In front of the'
Webster Flea
Market, he was a LiN
victim of a hit and RA
run accident. But,. .
who would have
thought that Ihi- unfortunate
e eut Wvould be the turiniln
pojiL tin the Labrador's life
Wit'iesses made frantic
call' to the Humane
Society SPCA of Sumter
County-foyrhelp. A realtor at
* Micki Black.rn Realty
'brought the Labriador pup to
Shr business where she gave.
him food and water until help
a arrived
The dog's skin was ripped
off his side and hip. The
Humane Society/SPCA inves-
tigator rushed to help and
assessed the severity of the
injury She knew the dog
needed emergency medical
care before going to Animal
Control. The Humane
Society/SPCA is the only local
agency that will pay emer-
gency medical expenses for
injured stray animals, and the
Society couldn't let him suffer
in Animal Control for three
days while hoping for a care-
taker to claim him.
Unfortunately, the Humane
Society/SPCA recently had an
overload of emergency med-
ical expenses for animals and'
had exhausted its "Hope
Fund," which is money specif-
ically designated to help
injured and abused animals.
But our volunteers have huge
hearts, and when several of
our office volunteers saw the
Labrador' u in ju i-ies, they dug
in deep and came up with the
money out of their own pock-
ets.
They made it possible for


the Society to afford the dog's
medical expense. And they
named him Bumper.
The Humane
-- Society/SPCA does-
n't ever want to be
in the position of
having to turn
injured animals
away for lack of
funds. That is why
public donations
J are critical.
Without your
donations, we
would not be able
IDA to pay for veteri-
WES ; narian care.
Without your d6na-
tio6ns. Bumper and
others like him \ ou ild have no
relief from their ufiering.
Bumper is recovering nice-
ly from his injuries. No one
came to claim him from
Animal Control, so the
Humane Society/SPCA took
him into our foster program.
'Soon it will be 2007. Our
New Year wish for Bumper is
to.find a great home. Bumper
is a big energetic boy, who is
friendly, playful and loyal.
Because of his size and exu-
berant personality, he wuvoufd
benefit greatly from basic obe-
dience classes.
He would love a home with
a family that will play his
favorite game with him Ball!
You can work on your pitching
Bumper will get the ball
every time. Maybe you need to
practice your tennis serve -
No problem Bumper will
bring the ball back to you
every time! Do you enjoy
going for walks? Bumper
would love to keep you com-
pany. Bumper is a big boy, just
under a year old. He has been
neutered and is current on his
vaccinations.
Would you like to help
Bumper start the New Year
off right? Can you give
Bumper the home he needs?
Maybe you would like to be a
foster home for Bumper and
teach him his basic manners,
and get him ready for a peir-
manent home. If you've got
what it takes to help Bumper -
call us at 793-9117. Or e-mail
us at: humane@sum.net.


Bumper is recovering nicely from his injuries.
