Search for woman leads to Panasoffkee


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Have you seen her?
If you have information that
leads to an arrest in the case of
a missing 59-year-old woman,
it may be worth $80,000.
More than a year after 59-
year-old Sandra Hamby Prince
was last seen and detectives
discovered her blood in the
trunk of her car, Temple
Terrace investigators are still
looking for the Hillsborough
County woman.
This past Wednesday morn-
ing, the search led authorities
to Lake Panasoffkee where


Prince owned property and
had a long-term relationship
with Lake Panasoffkee resi-
dent Earl Pippin,
said Temple Terrace
Det. Michael
Pridemore.
Pippin, who owns
a construction busi-
ness in Hillsborough
County, had a five-
year relationship
with Prince and is
the sole beneficiary
of her estate,
Pridemore said.
Prince was in the
process of developing
the land and slated to make a
trip to Sumter County on Dec.


in


31, 2005 but "Reportedly she
did not show up there,"
Pridemore said.
Through bank
surveillance tapes
subpoenaed after
the last time she
was seen, authori-
ties discovered a
masked man mak-
ing withdrawals
S from her bank
accounts at two dif-
S ferent ATM loca-
tions.
According to the
ice report, the vehicle in
the ATM surveil-
lance video appears to be
Prince's 1994 white Buick,


which was found in her garage
on Jan. 3, days after she was
last seen.
Investigators wanted to con-
tact residents and businesses
in Sumter County, distributing
fliers with the missing
woman's information and the
reward amount, with the hope
that someone would remem-
ber seeing something.
A neighbor reported Prince
missing at the beginning of
2006 and when they discovered
her Park Avenue in the garage,
there was a significant amount
of her blood found in the trunk,
according to police reports.
The vehicle bore the tag
Florida State University SHP


The masked man who used
the car is described as a white
male with a stocky build, dark
hair on his arms and wearing a
short-sleeved, light-colored,
plaid shirt and dark pants. He
is believed to be in his mid 30s
to early 40s and is approxi-
mately 5 feet 11 to 6 feet tall,
weighing 215 to 245 pounds.
His hair is dark brown, and
he was clean-shaven.
He was last seen wearing a
white shirt and blue jeans and
what appears to be a green
mask
Authorities have a compos-
ite of the suspect
Pridemore said the last time
Prince was reportedly seen


Villages, Wildwood merge with town square


I e WvvIuwouua tLy iommissoinul Istens to a presentation uy rep-
resentatives of The Villages on a proposed commercial develop-
ment similar to Spanish Springs and Lake Sumter Landing.


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The Villages is planning
another town square for shop-
ping and entertainment,
much like Spanish Springs
and Lake Sumter Landing.
The difference this time is
that this one will be in
Wildwood.
Representatives of The
Villages development pre-
sented a rough proposal to an
enthusiastic Wildwood City
Commission Monday night.


The development could
"absolutely turn Wildwood
into a town we never would've
expected," Mayor Ed Wolf
said.
"The retail, the entertain-
ment is going to be right here
in the city of Wildwood and we
appreciate that," he said.
The project is being called
Brownwood, and is planned
along State Road 44. It will
have its own fictional history
like Spanish Springs and
Lake Sumter Landing.
"As you're aware, all our


town centers have a theme
and a story," Gary Moyer, vice
president of development for
The Villages, told commis-
sioners.
With it, Brownwood will
bring a movie theater, a hotel
and retail shopping into
Wildwood, City Manager Jim
Stevens said Tuesday
He said this will be an
"extremely significant" part
of the city's economy.
"The city goes back to the

Prince is cofounder of ACTS
- a drug and alcohol rehabili-
tation center in Hillsborough
County.
Twice divorced, her only
known relative is her 92-year-
old mother in North Carolina.

tion is asked to contact

County


seat not


moving


north

MARTIN STEELE
Times Correspondent.

County commissioners on
Tuesday were lining up topics
for their next two workshops
while trying to calm an appar-
ent controversy that devel-
oped from their most recent
planning session.
At least three of the com-
missioners assured citizens
that they have no plans to
move the Sumter County Seat
now in Bushnell to. the
north end of
the county;
and, the
other two
appeared to
be in agree-
ment with
them.
According
to some com-
missioners,
they have
been getting
phone calls Breeden
since some
media accounts of their work-
shop last Wednesday includ-
ed information about a possi-
ble county government move
to the Wildwood area.
While commissioners
acknowledged that they
might find merit in a possible
shift of some county opera-
tions to the north, they con-
tend that moving the county
seat is not their plan.
Commissioner Garry
Breeden was the first to
address the topic, noting that
it even made its way into the
television news this week
"We supposedly proposed
to move the county seat,"
Breeden said. "We never dis-
cussed that.
"I have no inclination of
moving the county seat, mov-
ing county operations from
here," he said.
Any decision to move the
county seat would have to be
made by the citizens not the
board, Bfeden said.
But Iseeden also com-
mented ;hat the, northern

Commission balks at Webster sports complex


Sports complex enthusiasts not deterred


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The County Commission may
be balking at a land purchase
for a new sports complex in
Webster, but youth sports
enthusiasts are not deterred.
"We're moving ahead," Larry
Swafford, president of the
Sumter Dixie Youth League,
said Jan. 19. "This thing is
going to happen."
Plans for the combination
community- and county-spon-
sored park in the city of
Webster hit a snag Jan. 17,
when county commissioners
seriously questioned the land
purchase for the park
So far, the county hasn't des-
ignated any funds for develop-
ment of the sports complex.
"That's important that every-
body knows ... we agreed to pay
for the land but no money is in
the budget for development,"
Commission Chairman
Michael Francis said.
Community Services
Director Lilla Holt told com-
missioners that costs not cov-
ered by funds raised by the
sports complex committee
would be requested from the
county.
The sports complex commit-
tee, which has about 20 mem-
bers, provides suggestions to
the Board of County
Commissioners and is raising
funds for development of the
project, but the board has the
final say.
The previous County
Commission that included Jim
Roberts and Joey Chandler
voted to purchase roughly 46
acres last year for the long-
awaited park at a cost of $1.3
million. The county paid for
about half of the property and

percent of the population and

be provided where the popu-
lation is.
The County Road 139 site
that the county received from
the Villages development
agreement might be part of
the answer to that, he said.
The rest of the board
appeared to agree with
Breeden's position.
Commissioner Doug Gilpin
also commented on the
reports.
"My intent is to base deci-
sions on what is best for all of
the people," Gilpin said,


was set to pay for the rest in
installments.
"We have a lease purchase
agreement on the rest,"
Commissioner Garry Breeden
said.
Francis said the first pay-
ment is due in October and
directed Interim County
Administrator Sandra Howell
to find out whether the county
is obligated to pay for the rest
Francis said because of near-
by facilities the city of Webster
received grant funding to
improve, the "original need
(for the sports complex) is not
there."
Commissioner Doug Gilpin
said he wanted more informa-
tion about current use of local
parks.
"To me, the thing that's miss-
ing in these (existing parks) is
children," he said.
Francis also took issue with
Holt's estimate of the number
of players and coaches
involved with local sports.
Using figures from sports
organizations in southern
Sumter County, she said there
were 721 players and 113
coaches between the summer
of 2005 and spring of 2006.
"That could be the same
child playing soccer in the
spring and softball in the sum-
mer and football in the winter
... I know there's double counts
in that number. It's not 700
kids," Francis said.
However, Swafford and oth-
ers believe the park is needed.
"They (children in Webster)
are playing on a dump,"
Swafford said, referring to the
Sam Harris Memorial Ball
Park "Webster doesn't have the
money" for a sports complex,
he said.
Holt told commissioners Jan.
17 that the Southwest Florida
adding that he supports
Bushnell remaining the coun-
ty seat.
But he does "seek efficiency
in government," he said. And
to accomplish that, some gov-
ernment facilities will likely
be needed near the popula-
tion centers.
Commissioner Randy Mask
said his view was the same.
"I don't know how it got
twisted around," Mask said.
Proceeding with future
planning, the board already
iiad a tentative agenda for
their Jan. 31 workshop ses-
sion. It includes solid waste,
roads, budget, and the county
pay plan.
That session is also sched-
uled for review of the infor-
mation for the cities regarding
the proposed fire municipal


Water Management District
plans to take over the park in
Webster, which is known to
flood.
The board directed Holt to
go ahead with development on
the portion of the property the
county already owns. County
Commissioner Richard
Hoffman said the board should
"put as much on there as we
can and we hold on to the rest
and see what this does and see
what the city of Webster is
going to do."
About the lack of support
coming from the County
Commission, Swafford asked,
"Why would you fight some-
thing that's going to benefit the
county?"
Swafford, Richard Lovett,
head of the Sumter County
Youth Soccer Club, and others
involved in organized youth
sports have lobbied for facili-
ties in the southern part of the
county.
Lovett has said Sumter chil-
dren have to go to Wildwood to
play in the league's soccer
games because of a lack of
facilities in south Sumter
Supporters plan to go ahead
with the first phase of the proj-
ect, which involves develop-
ment of four soccer fields, two
multipurpose fields, fencing
and irrigation. This first of
eight phases is estimated to
cost $250,000. The total cost of
development is expected to be
around $1.8 million. The local
soccer club has also applied for
a grant for $100,000 through a
national soccer organization.
Swafford said the Sumter
Dixie Youth League has
already donated $1,700 and
numerous individuals, a few of
whom live in Lake County, have
offered donations.
"I've already picked up $21
services taxing unit.
SWorkshops in January and
February are scheduled for 9
a.m., in the historic
Courthouse.
Commissioners agreed that
discussions about a possible
county charter government
needed to be "put on the back
burner" for the time being.
Subjects that the board
agreed to discuss on Feb. 17
include fire and emergency
medical services, parks and
recreation, the library system,
and funding for canal
cleanup.

Larry Swafford, president of the Sumter Dixie Youth League, stands in front of the Webster
property proposed for a new sports complex.


(this morning)," Swafford said.
"Granted, that's not a lot of
money, but it's important."
The committee is working to
drum up some financial help
through upcoming fundraisers.
Organizers hope to make $1,200
by selling chicken and rice and
barbecue dinners at the
Sumter County Farmers
Market.
A golf tournament is planned
for May 4 at Cane Garden
Country Club in The Villages.
The committee hopes to raise
$150,000 there.
While the project may be
uniting some sports groups, the
issue has proven to be divisive
among county commissioners.
Last February, Hoffman ini-
tiated a decision not seek fed-
eral funding for the sports com-
plex, saying the county would
be asking for "pork" Francis
and Commissioner Randy
Mask sided with Hoffman, vot-
ing to not seek $2 million for
the park and a stormwater
retention project, but Mask has
otherwise supported the pro-
posed sports complex.

Administrator Sandra Howell
announced this year's

scheduled for 9 a.m. until 3

Public announcements of
the event are planned.

tee regular meetings are on the

Commission could change policy on appointments


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer


The Sumter County
Commission could be changing
the way it looks for citizens to
serve on local boards.
At a regular meeting Jan. 16,
the board tabled a discussion on
appointing one nominee for the
Sumter County Tourist
Development Council after
Commissioner Garry Breeden
questioned the commission's
lack of advertising for the vacan-


cies.
"These (vacancies) really
don't get advertised so the pub-
lic doesn't know that these posi-
tions are available," Breeden
said when the commission was
asked to make a decision on
appointment of Jennifer
McCubbin to the Tourist
Development Council.
"I would think that it would
benefit us in some way ... adver-
tise that we have these positions
open so folks in the industries
might be more apt to show an
interest instead ofjust being rec-


ommendations from the board
or councils or whatever," he
said.
Commissioner Richard
Hoffman agreed.
"It seems as though we ought


to at least let people know that
this is available," Hoffman said.
Earlier during that meeting,
the board unanimously voted to


appoint Wildwood resident
Nathan Yoder, nominated by
Commissioner Doug Gilpin, to
the Sumter County Zoning and
Adjustment Board.
Hoffman said because the
vacancy on the zoning board was
for someone in District .2, it
made sense that Gilpin had a
person in mind.
"However, this (tourism)
board is open to anyone who fits
that category from anywhere in
the county," he said.


Interim County Administrator
Sandra Howell said the boards
and vacancies are listed on the
Board of County Commissioners
Web site:
www.sumtercountyfl.gov, but it
"has not been effective" in find-
ing candidates.
"These are volunteer jobs,"
said County Attorney Randall
Thornton. "That's why commis-
sioners are frequently the ones
who go out and seek people to
serve."

Matthews "went to the fire pit
in between the apartments
where (Matthews) observed sev-
eral people hanging around,"
said sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers.
Matthews "saw Courtney
Turner standing in front of the
fire," he said.
"He backed up to a home-

mately 6 feet tall and 6 feet
wide," when he saw Matthews,"
Caruthers said.


Matthews "saw him drop
something behind the wall to
conceal it," he said.
That's when she found a .45-

four bullets in it. When she
checked the weapon's serial
numbers, Matthew learned the
gun had been stolen in Leesburg

PUBLIC NOTICE
OnDecember 18, 2006, the Federal-
Highway Administration granted
location and design concept
acceptance for the following Federal
Aid project:
Financial Project ID Number:
240418-2-22-01
Federal Aid Project ID Number:
5652 007 S
Project Limits: SR 48 from CR 313
(west of the 1-75 ramps) to CR 475
(Main Street) in Sumter County,
Florida.
Project Description: The Florida
Department of Transportation '(FDOT),
in consultation with the Federal
Highway Administration (FHWA), is
proposing to widen State Road 48 from
two lanes to four lanes by constructing
one additional travel lane in each
direction, bicycle lanes, curb & gutter,
and sidewalks along both sides of the
roadway. Within the Interstate 75
interchange area, a median will be
developed to separate opposing traffic
Ilnos and provide space to
accommodate dual left turn lanes at
each of the 1-75 ramp intersections.
The proposed improvements will
require expansion/replacement the
1-75 bridge, which will be accomplished
by a separate project also under
development by FDOT. Between CR
609 and Wall Street, a center two-way
left turn lane will be provided between
the eastbound and westbound travel
lanes.
This project will now proceed to the
next phase of development. 68,1

Ways to lower your cholesterol


Availab


"Copyrighted Material


Syndicated Content


le from Commercial News Pro


he American Heart Association
statistics report that about 34.5
million American adults have
cholesterol levels of 240 mg/dL or high-
er. This high level is at the
point at which it becomes a
major risk factor for coro-
nary heart disease and
stroke. Your total cholesterol
should be below 200mg/dL,
and your HDL (good) choles-
terol should be 40 mg/dL or
higher. Your eating habits
affect your cholesterol so it
is fairly easy to lower your
blood cholesterol by eating
more foods low in saturated
fat and cholesterol and cut MAF
down on high fat ones, espe- MAI
cially those high in saturated
fats.
Here are a few guidelines to help you
with some simple daily guidelines: Eat
at least five servings of fruits and veg-
etables every day. Eat six or more serv-
ings of cereals, breads, pasta and other
whole grain products. Eat fish, poultry
without skin and leaner cuts of meat
instead of fatty ones. Eat nonfat or 1 per-
cent milk dairy products rather than
whole milk dairy products. Enjoy 30 to
60 minutes of vigorous activities on
most days of the week. Watch your
caloric intake by eating a wide variety of
foods low in saturated fat and choles-
terol and maintain a healthy weight
An exercise program is an important
factor in lowering your blood choles-
terol. However, sometimes it is hard to
get motivated; here are a few tips to
help you get started. When you exercise
wear comfortable clothes and sneakers
or flat shoes with laces. It is important
your feet are comfortable. Start slowly
,and gradually build up to 30 minutes of
activity each day. If you do not have a
full 30 minutes do two 15-minute ses-
sions. Exercise at the same time of day
so it becomes a regular part of your
lifestyle. Drink a cup of water before,
during and after exercising (but check
with the doctor, because some people
need to limit their fluid intake). Check
with your doctor before you start any


t
DI


type of exercise program. Ask family
and friends to join you and this will help
you be more likely to stick with it Use a
variety of exercises to keep your inter-
est up. Walk one day, swim
the next time, and then go for
a bike ride on the weekend.
Join an exercise group,
health club or exercise pro-
gram at work, church or sen-
ior center. Don't get discour-
S aged if you stop for awhile;
just get started again gradu-
ally and work up to your old
pace. Do not engage in any
activity that causes chest
pain, shortness of breath,
THA dizziness or lightheadedness.
DOX If these happen, stop what
you're doing right away.
Remember not to exercise
right after a meal, when it's very hot or
humid or when you do not feel up to it
Now that you have started some type
of exercise program, let's look at your
lifestyle and use these guidelines to
make some lifestyle changes. Ask your
physician or healthcare professional to
help you with nutrition advice. Learn to
read food labels so you'll be able to tell
how much fat, sodium and other ingre-
dients are in your diet Keep a diary of
all your nutrition and physical activity
efforts. When you have successes, write
them down and it will encourage you to
continue with your good habits. Talk to
your physician if you feel you are not
making progress and they should be
able to help you figure out why your
progress is slow.
The main steps to remember in low-
ering and maintaining a healthy choles-
terol level is to watch your eating habits,
exercise, make some lifestyle changes
and follow doctor's orders.

Unsung
heroes
I had the misfortune to spend the
last three days of 2006 in the LRMC
Hospital in Leesburg. Actually it was
my misfortune to get sick, but I was
fortunate to go to a good hospital and
be taken care of. This not a story about
me, but my observations about my
recent experience with my 911 call,
and treatment at LRMC Hospital, and
the unsung heroes that took care of
me.
The first step of the process was the
call to 911 and their prompt response
to the call. The paramedics checked
me out and with a fever of about 104F
made the call to transfer me to the
LRMC Hospital. They wired me to the
instruments that monitor my vital
signs, and put a needle in my hand for
the infusion of liquids if needed. They


were professional and did a good job.
In my definition of a hero, they are not
heroes but still should be recognized
for the good job they did.
In the ER at LRMC hospital I was
checked over by medical personnel,
and wired up for monitoring and after
a doctor got all the results, I was put
on antibiotic infusion directly in my
blood. Again, I would not call them
heroes, but commend them for doing a
professional job.
After finishing in the ER, I was
transferred to the fourth floor of the
hospital. The nurse in charge and the
nurse's aides were professional. I was
now hooked up to an infusion appara-
tus and also wired for monitoring my
heart functions. This was about ten
o'clock at night, and I was ready for
some sleep. The next thing I was
awakened by the sound of an alarm. It
sounded like the klaxon on a subma-
rine that is going to dive. After the
commotion was over, I was told that
the patient in my room was warned
not to try to get out of bed. He was not
steady on his feet, and to prevent him
from falling and hurting himself the
automatic alarm would go on. The
alarm went on three more times dur-
ing the night, and between other inter-
ruptions such as drawing blood, and
monitoring my vital signs -I got very
little sleep.
The next day I was sent for more
ultrasonic tests, and when I came
back to my room, my bedroom partner
was snoring happily away. I requested
a change to a different room, but there
was no other space available. Now I
come to the unsung heroes.
I observed that most of the nurse's
aides were from all over the Americas
and including Philippines. They


spoke good English, and were doing a
very good job.
The next night was a repeat of the
night before. After the third alarm, the
patient demanded a shower. This was
at 3 o'clock in the morning. The nurse
and the aids finally convinced him to
allow the aids to give him a sponge
bath. I was impressed by how well
they handled the job. In particularJ
was impressed by a Philippine nur9
aid. She was perhaps less than hurt-
dred pounds in weight The patient
was rude and bullied the girls. And by
now I had it! When the aids left I told
him I have met some inconsiderable
men, but he took the prize. I had a few
more comments as to his actions, and
how insulting his actions were. The
rest of the night was less exciting,
Now as to the unsung heroes. I have
witnessed many acts of heroism. One
definition is an act above and beyond
the duty to risk one's life for someone
else. This is probably the highest level
of heroism. There are many levels of
heroism that are mostly never recog-
nized. The nurse's aid service-toaat
abusive, rude, bullying patient while
maintaining their patience and per-
forming their tasks cheerfully with
kindness is a form of heroism that
should be at least recognized.
Our country is great and the envy (f
the rest of the world because of the
people who came to this country in
search of a better life. The words free-
dom, life, liberty, and pursuit of hap~
piness are not just empty slogan.
Heroism is a common virtue of the
free people. It is the unsung heroes
that make America great

New leaders waddling same paths


Don't duck and cover Heck no,
we don't duck and cover in the
light of the hole, although we
don't truly know where or when we
shall fall into the hole of a
most devastating health
care system that we all
saw coming.
We shall continue to
name the players, as we
remain politically neu-
tral.
Fear not, my friend,
hold my hand, and togeth-
er we shall walk with our
new leaders and justly
show you how to get noth- D
ing done in swift manner.
Our new leaders may
sound like a duck, they
may stoop like a duck,
but, quite unfortunately, they are not
merely ducks.
First, the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA). Dr. Lester M.
Crawford, the former commissioner
of the FDA, is a great start and story
when one wants a peek at the begin-
ning of politicalization for a govern-
ment nomination.
After waiting a number of months
for the FDA nomination, Crawford,
who was President Reagan's friend
and subsequently his director of the
FDA's Center for Veterinary
Medicine, was finally passed by the
Bush administration. No, he hadn't
been waiting all this time, but he did
work some 15 months for that posi-


U

I


tion and quit for a number of rea-
sons just two months later. I shall
leave it right here.
Next, Dr. Andrew C. von
Eschenbach is an incred-
ible choice as Crawford's
FDA commissioner Von
Eschenbach was the
national director of the
l U.S. National Cancer
SInstitute; in fact, for a
A"J while he served as both
NCI director and acting
i administrator of the FDA.
He now lingers about
seeking an office. He held
his NCI post, but, I
believe, he now just
AN heads up the FDA.
The doctor is my type of
person: controversial,
knowledgeable and refuses to take
guff. And, he doesn't know how to
stop burning bridges. He is a found-
ing director of the Prostate Cancer
Research Program, served in the
U.S. Navy Medical Corps and has
won a number of awards.
Unfortunately, I fail to see how he
will make it around Bush's people;
hence, I don't see him staying too
long. I sure hope a future president
will see the light. I hear von
Eschenbach is trying to find an
office, but not looking for Crawford's
office. I believe von Eschenbach
knows a little about bacteria.
Next, we tackle the office of the
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid


Services (CMS). Since March 2004,
its administrator had been Mark
McClellan, PhD. Economics, and
M.D., Harvard-MIT Division of
Health Sciences and Technology.
Last September, McClellan
resigned. Perhaps he was too smart,
perchance he has political ambition.
Bush people knew that Like the
brilliant gentleman that he is, he
left
And, what do you think that the
administration and the new friends
of the people are doing? The latter,
once again, are clueless. The former
have all of their ducks quacking.
Well, try this one on: They have
appointed two acting administrators
for the CMS. The acting administra-
tor is a woman by the name of Leslie
E Norwalk, Esq. She worked for a
law firm by the name of Epstein
Becker & Green PC. Her duties were
to tutor the firm's clients about
health policy matters. She also
served the Bush administration.
The other, titled acting deputy
administrator, is named Herb B.
Kuhn, a longtime health care lobby-
ist

- Gra NOTES -


Help for those who


help themselves


I used to drive a 10-year-old
Ford Tempo with 189,000
miles on it For the last
two years I drove it,
a noise that sound-
ed like metal con-
tracting and
expanding drove
me crazy. But
because my
mechanic couldn't
find anything A
wrong, I shrugged it
off and continued
driving it
When I bought a
new car, I gave the NA
Tempo to a woman KEN
at work She drove KE
it home, parked it in
her yard and the engine fell
out! For those two years I had
driven the car completely
unaware that three out of four
bolts that hold the engine to
the block had fallen off. The
noise had been caused by the
weight of the engine straining
the remaining bolt
On the outside, the car
looked perfectly normal and
healthy, if cars can be healthy.
But internally, it was a disas-
ter waiting to happen.
It was only the profound
mercy of God that the engine
didn't fall out while I or some-
one else was driving it
All that time I was unaware
of my need for help, but I was
nonetheless in need. You bet-
ter believe that I was and still
am beyond grateful that God
came to my rescue and helped
me even when I thought all
was well.
That's how life is some-
times. Not everyone's life is in
crisis all the time, thank God.
We are not always in tears,
begging God for help.
Sometimes life works. Maybe
your life works right now -
you've got your health; your
bills are paid. Maybe your
kids are behaving even
your teenagers. Even your
adult kids.
Maybe your faith is secure
and you know, that you can
always call on God if you need
his help. But right now you
don't. You're doing fine with-
out it
However, needing God's
help isn't solely for the des-
perate. Sometimes we need
his help most when we're
least aware of our need.
Like me with my Tempo.
I must say, I've never con-
sciously said, "Lord, every-
thing's going smoothly so
today I'm going to stop trust-
ing you for my daily needs."
For me, maybe for you, too, it's
more of a subtle, gradual drift-
ing. I leave my Bible
unopened for days, weeks,
months. My prayer life wanes.
Even though I know God is
in his heaven and all is well, if
I'm not aware of my utter
dependence on him for each
breath I take, I become dis-


M


w

L
I


connected from him, like my
car's engine.
When that happens, there's
a vague dullness to
my life that I usual-
ly can't put my fin-
ger on. It's like lis-
tening to the noise
of my car for so
long that I don't
even hear it any
longer. And since
S '-. nothing is outward-
ly wrong and I
seem to be doing
S fine on my own, I'm
CY not aware of how
NY desperately I need
NEDY God.
I keep thinking
about how oblivious I was to
the danger of driving around
with only one bolt holding my
engine to the block I shudder
to think about what could
have happened.
Spiritually, it's when I'm
oblivious and think I can do
fine on autopilot that I'm most
susceptible to tumbling head-
first into sin. Not necessarily
the obvious "deadly" sins,
although that's possible. More
likely I tumble into the more
subtle, soul-stealing, joy-rob-
bing sins of self: self-reliance,
self-satisfaction and self-right-
eousness.
When I'm trusting in myself,
I'm essentially turning my
back on God. Without meaning
to or realizing it, I am in
essence waving my fist in his
face and declaring myself, the
creature, greater than he, the
Creator.
That's when I need God's
help most, help to find my way
back to dependence on his
grace, and his grace alone, for
my very next breath and
heartbeat
In our culture, we often
despise helplessness, espe-
cially our own. We'd much
rather be self-sufficient it's
the American way! But we
were born helpless and creat-
ed to be dependent The truth
is, only the helpless can truly
know the awesome rescuing
power of the Almighty. Only
those who cry out in depend-
ence can know the loving
dependability of the Father
and the security of the Rock
We miss out on so much
when we rely and seek help
solely in ourselves. And we
risk great damage and
destruction when we lull our-
selves into thinking all is well
when it's not.
Sometimes we have a screw
loose and don't know it.

The results are in and
Sumter Electric Cooperative
(SECO) has been judged an
outstanding utility by its mem-
ber/customers.
The National Rural Electric
Cooperative Association's
Market Research Services
division conducted a tele-
phone survey of SECO mem-
bers that was concluded in
December of 2006. The results
have now been tabulated and
it's clear that SECO members
think very highly of their coop-
erative.
SECO CEO Jim Duncan said,
"We conduct an annual tele-
phone survey of the members
because in a fast growing co-
op like ours it is important to
stay in touch with our cus-
tomers and get their impres-
sions of how we are doing from


a performance point of view.
The survey is one of the ways
in which we do that"
On a five-point scale where
one means 'poor' and five
means 'excellent' SECO was
rated very highly on support-
ing the local community, being
environmentally concerned,
keeping members informed,
giving personal attention to
customers, advocating for co-
op member rights and having
consumers' best interests at
heart The average score for
these six satisfaction indica-
tors was over 4.5 on the
five-point scale.
Service performance indica-
tors on the five-point scale also
received extremely high
marks. Again, the average
score was over 4.5 for minimiz-
ing longer power outages,


responding quickly to service
requests, providing consistent
voltage, restoring power quick-
ly after an outage and mini-
mizing blinks or momentary
outages.
SECO also wants to know
how it stacks up when com-
pared to other utilities across
the nation where customer sat-
isfaction is concerned. To get
the answer, the survey con-
tained specific American
Consumer Satisfaction Index
(ACSI) questions that are
asked uniformly of customers
of other utilities during their
surveys.
The ACSI rating scale goes
from one to 100. SECO's score
when compared to other utili-
ties was an 86 which was the
highest score in the ACSI rank-
ings. It greatly exceeded the


electric industry average score
of 72. It also beat the scores of
such utilities as Southern
Company which received a 79,
Allegheny Energy which
received a 77, Duke Energy
which received a 76, as well as
all the ranked investor owned
utility scores in Florida.
"The survey report is more
than 70 pages," concluded
Duncan, "but, in a nutshell, it
tells us that our member/cus-
tomers think very highly of
their co-op and are generally
well pleased with our labors
on their behalf. It also tells us
that where customer satisfac-
tion is concerned SECO is at
the top of the heap amongst
ACSI ranked utilities nation-
wide. We are very grateful for
our members' continuing trust
and approval."

coach Von Moreland.
"Wiregrass is a first year team.


They shoot the ball from out-

ty good for that game."
Friday, Wildwood beat the
Villages High 50-28 at
Wildwood. Derrick Williams
had 12 points. Tadrain
Williams had 11 points.
DeAndre Mitchell and
McCray both led the team
with eight rebounds. McCray

"I thought we did a pretty
good job defensively," said
Moreland. "We didn't shoot
very well. I don't know if it was
a good game for either team.
They didn't run off and leave

plish a whole lot. I thought the
Villages played hard."
Saturday, Wildwood beat
Belleview 66-59. McCray had
33 points. Tadrain Williams
had 12 points.
"It was closer than that,"
Moreland said. "We were up
three points. There was a con-
troversial call that went in our


direction. That drew a techni-

on the bench. It was a tough
call to swallow.
"It was a charge-blocking.

the fourth quarter. Demetrice
definitely stepped up. He shot
16 free throws and made 14.
They are Class 5A and we are
3A. We have played a pretty


tough schedule. We have lost
two to Mount Dora. Trinity
Catholic and Mount Dora are
definitely quality teams. We
have beaten East Ridge twice,

Deltona Pine Ridge High.
Belleview is another big
school.

first half, maybe 13 points.
They closed the gap at half-
time. It was 34-28 at.halftime.
They came back and whittled
away. They were ahead going

a good win. I knew it would be
tough. I thought our kids did a
good job of hanging in there
and getting it done."

South Sumter girls lose


three straight games


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

The South Sumter High
girls' basketball team recently
lost Tiajuana Jordan and it
hurt.
The senior co-captain.had a
seizure in the classroom and
missed the last four games
and will miss the rest of the
season and probably track
also.
South Sumter coach Gary
Russo said she was one of the
team leaders and this clearly
has been a blow to the
Raiders.
The South Sumter High
girls' basketball lost three
games last week
On Tuesday, Jan. 15, Class
4A-District 8 foe Gulf High
beat South Sumter 59-36.
Paulicia Brown scored 15
points and had 10 rebounds.
"It was pretty good," said
coach Gary Russo. "They
outscored us 10-2 in the sec-
ond quarter. We shot 13 of 52
from the field for 25 percent.
We were five of 13 at the free
throw line. I think they (Gulf)
are going to end up third in
the district seeding."
Wildwood, a Class 3A state-
ranked team, beat. South
Sumter 40-33 in Bushnell.
Brown had 14, all in the sec-

ond half.
"We played really well," the
coach said. "We had a chance
to win it but couldn't make the
shots. We made 15 of 45 from


the field, 33 percent. We bat-
tled back The score at half
was 20-7 Wildwood. We came
back and made it pretty close.
We outscored them 15-7 in the
fourth quarter. We made a run
at them. We were so far
behind.
"When you hold a team like
Wildwood to 40 points, it was a
great (defensive) effort. We
played hard. We're not doing
bad."
Friday, they played the dis-
trict's top-seeded Nature
Coast and lost 51-41 in
Bushnell. Within three min-
utes of the end of the game,
South Sumter was within four
points of the lead.
Brown led the Raiders with
25 points, the best scoring
effort by anyone.
She also had 15 rebounds.
"She was really outstanding
in that game," said Russo.
"She kept us in the game all
night. They are an outstand-
ing team."
South Sumter will begin
play in the district tourna-
ment starting at 6 p.m. on Jan.
31, playing Hernando High at
Nature Coast High in Spring
Hill. If they win, the Raiders
will play the winner of the
Nature Coast against
Springstead contest. South
Sumter is now fourth seeded
in Class 4A-District 8.
Thursday, South Sumter
will face state-ranked Mount
Dora Bible in Bushnell.
"Without the Jordan girl, it
will be tough," said Russo.

So many animals end up
at the county's Animal
Control facility. Some
are strays, some are
owner turn-ins, and ,
some are from ani-
mal abuse cases.
Animal Control
conjures up images
of things most of us
would rather not .
think about. For
many animals at -
the facility, this
could mean the end
of their lives. But
for others, the lucky LiN
ones, it could mean GRA
a second chance for
a better life.
Animal Controls across the
nation euthanize millions of
homeless animals every year.
How sad to think that the
majority of these sweet inno-
cent animals must pay with
their lives because of irre-
sponsible people who will not
get their pets spayed and
neutered. Unaltered animals
allowed to roam contribute to
the never-ending cycle of
euthanasia across the coun-
try.
At Sumter County Animal
Control, compassionate
employees have worked to
improve conditions for the
animals. Under the direction
of Supervisor John Hezlep,
animals have been made
available for adoption from
the facility. Carol LeGrand,
who works in the kennel area,
gives exceptional care to each
of the animals. On cold nights,
Carol makes sure every dog
has a blanket. When a blanket
was not enough for a little
shivering Chihuahua, Carol

S The Humane
DA Society/SPCA of
VES Sumter County
L ^VES continues to raise
public awareness
of the needs at Animal
Control with a successful
ongoing blanket drive for the
dogs on cold winter nights.
But the needs of the animals
goes well beyond Animal
Control. Until every citizen
acts responsibly, animals will
unfortunately pay the ulti-
mate price. Please spay and
neuter to prevent litters of
puppies and kittens. There
are not enough homes for
them all. Don't let your ani-
mals roam the neighborhood.
Not only are they a nuisance
to your neighbors, but they
can easily be hit by a car,
injured in a dog- or cat fight,
or taken in by animal abusers.
Don't keep a dog chained up.
.They are social animals and
want to be a part of your fami-

ment, and let's end this cycle

abused animals in our county.

Oudoowit ADAMS


Leaving British Columbia, the final chapter


O ur stay (with Jimmy and
Doyle) up in British last-
ed a little more than a
week and it was one of those
kinds of trips where
you dread going to
bed at night because
you knew one more
precious day was
gone off your trip.
As I lay in my .-,
bunk that last night,
deep in my sleeping
bag, I could not help
but reminisce about
the previous days
and how much fun JA
and excitement I A
had experienced. I
was especially
thankful for the special oppor-
tunity of being with some close
friends but mostly the opportu-
nity to spend some quality time
with my eldest son Jimmy. He
and I both really needed to get
away from the grueling every
,day struggles in the world for a
little while and get back to
being close to nature for a few
days.
Jimmy celebrated his 40th
birthday on the trip and this
was the first real vacation for
him since graduating from high
school. Jimmy is an investiga-
tor with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Commission (FWC)
and an excellent woodsman. It


is only understandable that he
really enjoyed and appreciated
the beauty of the land in
British Columbia.
Looking back now
on the trip, I know I
want to and will go
back again if the
Opportunity arises.
This time, I would
like to take both of
my boys and stay a
Little bit longer.
S Davy, my youngest
son, is also a game
S warden with the
E FWC. He is very
skilled in tracking
MS animals, and for that
matter, I know if he
could get the chance to make a
trip up to Harold's Place on the
Crying Girl Ranch he would
greatly enjoy it
Laying in my bunk waiting
for sleep to take over, I thought
about this old world we all live
in and just how very special it
really is. I, for one, do not
believe for one second that all
the beautiful things we have
been blessed with within the
vast realm of nature's domain
was created with some great
big bang as some of the educat-
ed so-called scholars would
have us believe.
I have had the wonderful
opportunity to see with my own

eyes a small portion of the
majestic world we live in. I
truly believe that a mighty and
supreme being by the name of
God created this paradise we
live in. There is no way that the
sun and moon along with the
very act of new life in all the
creatures living on this earth
being birthed just happened by
happen chance.
There is a mighty supreme
power who had and carried an
eloquent plan for this planet
we call Earth. For my part, he
did a pretty good job with his
handiwork That is not to say
however that mankind has not
been mighty destructive in
messing up his handiwork in
way too many cases.
There was a song I heard
many years ago that had words
something to effect of: a master
painter in the far away hills
that created the flowers and
daffodils or something like
that But, anyway, the song had
it right in its portrayal of how
beautiful this world we live in
really is.
One time, many years ago,
when I was trying to get re-
elected as the sheriff of Sumter
County, I was making my
rounds visiting folks in the
Lake Panasoffkee area and
asking for their votes.
When I stopped by an elderly

Columbia.


lady's house whom I had
known for some time to remind
her to vote for me, she invited
me in for a cup of coffee.
While we were drinking our
coffee, I got to talking about the
western portion of the country
and especially North Idaho. Lo
and behold, it turned out that
this dear old lady had been out
in that very same part of the
country years ago while on her
honeymoon.
When I asked her if she ever
had the notion to make another
trip back out there, she just
smiled and told me, 'Jamie I
can go back out there any time

Wallon, Ronald Gainer, Louis Hook, Wallace Montgomery,
Gerald Corbett, Tomas Tucker, Frank Whitside,. Kenneth
Freeman.


I want to because all I have to
do is let this old easy chair
back, close my eyes and in a
matter of seconds I am right
back out there."
I will never forget that beau-
tiful little lady's comments and
she is so right because even
now if I want to take a trip back
in time I do the very same thing
in my own easy chair.
Anyway, I hated to leave
Harold's place. But, I have the
fond memories of the nights
when the sky was so clear with
stars shining by the millions
looking to be so close that you
could just reach out and grab a


hand full and put them in your
pocket They can even hear the
sounds of the Graham River
flowing and tumbling over
rocks flowing toward the
mighty Columbia River to join
in with the rush of crystal clean
water surging on to the Pacific
Ocean.
I, for sure, will long remem-
ber the friendship and wel-
come feeling bestowed on us by
fine men like Marlin Watson,
his twin boys Ridge and Reinn
along with Gary Heyer, Terry
Hart and especially Chef Keith.
Yep, it's for sure, I have to go
back one more time.

today during the annual con-
ference for co-op CEOs from
across the nation held by the
National Rural Electric
Cooperative Association
(NRECA). The award honors a
CEO who advances communi-
cation in the electric coopera-
tive industry.
Only one such award is
made each year to a CEO from
one of the nearly 1,000 electric
cooperatives across the coun-
try. Duncan was cited specifi-
cally for "demonstrating a
clear understanding of and
commitment to the strategic
role of communication in
employee, member and com-
munity relations."
The panel of judges consist-
ed of communication and


management experts in aca-
demia as well as from busi-
ness and industry, including
electric co-op utilities. They
emphasized the manner in
which Duncan has integrated
two-way communication into
SECO's daily operations, its
interactions with co-op mem-
ber/customers, and for proac-
tive community service and
consumer advocacy.
In accepting the award from
NRECA CEO Glenn English
and other co-op representa-
tives, Duncan said, "I am
deeply appreciative of this
honor. I firmly believe that
good communication is vitally
important to the success of
any business and it is particu-
larly critical for member-
owned electric cooperatives.
It leads to open and honest
dialogue and that results in a
high customer satisfaction
ranking."
SECO recently received one
of the highest scores in the
nation on the American
Customer Satisfaction Index
for electric utilities.

Sago palm: It's really not a palm at all


he sago palm is not a
palm at all. The spiny
fronds have the palm
appearance and the care of
the sago is similar to that of
palms, hence the name "sago
palm" has stuck.
The sago is actually a cycad,
which is an ancient cone-bear-
ing plant with roots (no pun
intended) or fossils dating
back a quarter billion years.
They are normally planted as
a small foundation plant.
Sagos are slow growing, only
about one inch per year, and
are very hardy.
Pruning your sago leaves
should be done at least once
per year. The oldest and low-
est leaves will turn brown.
Allow the leaves to turn fully
brown, as the degeneration of
the leaf is actually feeding the


rest of the plant, then cut as
close to the trunk as possible.
New leaves emerging from
the top that are yellow or wrin-
kled is a sign that the plant has
either been over- or underfer-
tilized. Although sagos need to
be fed with slow-release or
palm fertilizer, as with all
plants, never allow the granu-
lar fertilizer to rest on the
leaves or trunk of the plant
Spread the granules uniform-
ly under the leaf spread of the
plant without touching the
trunk
If you notice a new plant
growing out of the side of the
trunk close to the ground, this
is called a "pup" and can nor-
mally be twisted off or cut off
with a knife or a flat shovel.
This pup can be placed in a
pot or in the ground with some


success for continued growth.
The Asian cycad scale is the
white, scaly substance you see
on the lower leaves of many
sago palms in our
areas. Left untreat-
ed it can kill a medi-
um size sago palm W
in a year. It origi-
nates from Thailand k
and Southern China
and is believed to
have been acciden-
tally introduced
through legal
importation of sago
cycads. The scale
hatches as an insect JE
capable of move- Pa
ment, finding a suit-
able spot to insert
its pointed mouth (much like a
straw) into the plant and starts
feeding. The scale spreads


T
07


rapidly by wind dispersal and
transportation of infested
plants.
The ideal solution to defeat-
ing the scale is the
introduction of nat-
ural predators/par-
asites. Currently,
studies are being
done on a predato-
*"- T ry beetle and a par-
'- asitic wasp. Time
will tell if this bio-
logical approach is
the answer.
The short-term
solution for your
RRY sago with scale
r-ER which is somewhat
effective, especial-
ly on the younger
sago, is to spray the affected
plant with horticultural oil or
malathion-in-oil. This will kill


the outer insects, but pay par-
ticular attention to the base
and underside of the leaves.
The infestation also affects the
roots down as far as 24 inches
and for this you will need to
drench the plant with a sys-
temic insecticide, allowing the
material to soak into the
ground. This is absorbed into
the leaves and into the roots,
killing insects as they feed.
You will need a hand pump
sprayer for both of these prod-
ucts. To bring the pests under
control and prevent future
generations of scale from
hatching, spray every other
week in warmer weather and
once a month in cold weather.
The hope is that once a
predator/parasite population
is established we can stop our
chemical control. In the mean-


time, many sagos that are not
cared for will die.
Now that you know how to
treat your plants, tell your
neighbors and friends in an
effort to slow the spread.
