Sheriff's office seeks input from public


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Are you a critic of the
Sumter County Sheriff's
Office? Do you find the
department worthy of some
high praise?
Whatever your opinion, it's
being welcomed next month
by a group of examiners study-
ing the sheriff's office.
Assessors from the


Commission for Florida Law
Enforcement Accreditation
(CFA) are planning to exam-
ine the sheriff's office to
determine if it complies with
accreditation standards. The
sheriff's office must comply
with about 260 standards in
order to receive accredited
status. The sheriff's office
first received accreditation in
2002, according to sheriff's Lt.
Donald Knee.
The agency is re-evaluated


for accreditation purposes
every three years.
The visit will include an
examination of all aspects of
the department including
policies, procedures, manage-
ment, operations and support
services.
Accreditation "means that
the sheriff's office policies
and procedures meet national
and state accepted practices.
They go through every one of
our policies," Knee said.


But public input is also
important As part of the on-
site assessment, agency mem-
bers and the general public
are invited to offer comments
to the assessment team.
"We have a phone line that's
dedicated to public com-
ment," Knee said..
On Wednesday, April 9, the
public can call 569-6063
between noon and 4 p.m. to
address the sheriff's office's
ability to comply with CFA


standards. Telephone com-
ments are limited to 10 min-
utes.
The assessment team is
comprised of law enforce-
ment practitioners from simi-
lar agencies, according to
Rachel Turner, accreditation
program manager for Sumter
County. The assessors will
review written materials,
interview individuals and
visit offices and other places
where compliance can be wit-


nessed.
Once the assessors com-
plete their review, they report
back to the full commission,
which then decides if the
sheriff's office will receive
reaccredited status.
An accreditation program
has long been recognized as a
means of maintaining the
highest standards of profes-

shooting

BoB REICHMAN
Editor

A flyer poised around
town by the Wi Idwood Police
Department has resulted in
the apprehension of a man
believed to be responsible
for robbing a convenience
store .and shooting two
employees about a year and
a half ago.
Wildwood police last
Thursday arrested Ronnie
Leon Quaker, 23, of
Wildwood, in connection
with the September 2006
shooting and robbery at
M&K Quick Save conven-
ience store on Kilgore
Street.
Quaker was arrested for
armed robbery and two
counts of attempted murder.
He was placed in the Sumter
County Detention Center.
Quaker lives on Kilgore
Street, a few blocks away
from the convenience store,
according to the report.
He is accused of entering
the store on the evening of
Sept. 4, 2006, brandishing a
firearm, according to a
Wildwood police report.
Quaker robbed the store
clerk, Cynthia Hogan, and
then shot her twice, accord-
ing to the report. A security
worker, Angelo Martinez,
was also shot twice. Both vic-
tims were transported to
Leesburg Regional Medical
Center where they under-
went surgery.
Following the shooting, the
suspect fled from the store
on foot
Last week, during a line-
up, both victims identified
Quaker as the man who
robbed the store and shot,
them, according to Police
Capt. Eddie Reeser.
Following the shooting,
law enforcement officers
attempted to find a suspect
"but leads went cold,"
Reeser said. "About six to
eight months ago, we gener-
ated more leads from a flyer
that was posted."
Someone saw the flyer and
provided information that
led to Quaker's arrest,
Reeser said.
Although Quaker was
residing only a few blocks
from the store at the time of
his arrest, in 2006, he was
now living at a different loca-
tion, Reeser said.

Military Ministry supporting troops


The Bushnell Military
Ministry is busy supporting
the troops as individuals,
through a military hospital,
overseas and right here at
home, according to coordina-
tor Pam Tompkins.
It's a military ministry that
began in July of 2007, when
Bushnell First Baptist Church


Preacher Casey Ferguson
asked Tompkins to help coor-
dinate the effort she had
experience shipping items to
her son who had served in
Iraq.
"We have a great group of
people who work hard in this
ministry and we all have a
great passion for our mili-


tary," she said.
"We have worked hand-in-
hand with the Sumter County
Veterans Service Office. They
have been wonderful to work
with. They provided us with a
list of names of troops serving
overseas, and in the beginning
they had tons of supplies that
they didn't have the manpow-


er to get out."
What Veterans Services did-
n't have, the ministry did, so
the volunteers began sorting,
packing and shipping.
"It has worked out great."
On the homefront, they've

Lundy's story was one that
animal control employees
were happy to talk about,
especially the part about
Rosco originally coming from
an animal shelter.
"She ended up rescuing
Rosco from a shelter. Now he
turned around and rescued
her," said Carol Legrand, ken-
nel technician for county ani-
mal control.
"She was more concerned
about her dog's well being
than her own," Animal
Control Manager John Hezlep
said.
But Rosco didn't show any
signs of illness.
"He didn't appear to have
any type of medical problems
or anything. He was kept
under close supervision,"
Hezlep said.
The Lundys returned home
to Georgia, and Legrand said
the last time she spoke with
Mrs. Lundy, "Rosco was get-
ting the T-bone steak that he
was promised."
The Lundys also showed
their gratitude with a $100
donation to the local Humane
Society.

Is there a way to win


the tax or inflation battle?


In recent weeks, newspaper and
broadcast headlines have been
using the R-word recession.
It seems that the people with
money are hurting the stock
market is down, home and real
estate sales continue to languish,
oil futures topped $100 a barrel,
retail sales are sluggish busi-
nesses are hurting.
Working class families and
retirees don't need headlines to tell
them there may be a recession.
Their economy has been depressed
for a year or more and ongoing
price increases are causing even
more pain.
The most obvious ache is gaso-
line. Last February it was $2.29 a
gallon. Currently, about the best
you could do locally is $3.15. That's
about a $1 per gallon increase with-
in a year. It took more than 10 years
for gas to escalate a dollar a gallon.
Unleaded regular was about 99
cents a gallon in January 2000.
-It makes sense thatgroceries and
everything else transported by
semi-trucks is affected by inflation.
Currently diesel fuel is running
about 50 cents a gallon more than
regular gas. Trains and power
plants also burn fuel oil.
The cost of trucking produce to
market has driven the cost of sim-
ple salad ingredients to unthink-
able prices. Those four or six for $1
cucumbers now cost 72 cents each.
That 38-cent head of iceberg let-
tuce is $1.48, and a one-pound
tomato can cost $2.48.
The cost of roughage is getting
rough and the cost of everything
else is becoming harder to stom-
ach. And it hits working families as


hard as retirees.
We traditionally think of those
who- no longer work as being on
"fixed" incomes and that is still
true. Pensions, annuities and
Social Security checks don't effec-
tively adjust for inflation, leaving
families with less disposable
income each year.
Now that industry is in a bind,
including home construction,
employers are cutting back on staff.
Companies that aren't laying off
workers are not filling vacancies
that occur.
Some of the largest employers,
state and local governments, are
also cutting back Property tax and
home insurance increases have
pushed homeowners to the point of
demanding relief.
Lowering homeowner premiums
seems to be a lost cause: but Gov.
Charlie Crist, the Legislature and
voters have elected to cut property
taxes. The effect has yet to be fully
felt.
In Tallahassee, more tax reform
is being talked about and there will
probably be another bill for voters
to ponder on the November ballot.
The way things look, that $200
homeowners will save on property
taxes will be pulled out of their
pockets penny by penny. In sales,
it's referred to as "pay me now or
pay me later" but you still pay.
And life tells us that once prices
go up they seldom come down. With
government as well as business, it's
a bit of a shell game. Cut one tax
and add another.
At the grocery store, the candy
bar may still cost 50 cents but it's
no longer 4 ounces of chocolate, it's
3.


A year
of destiny
A year of destiny now
stands before us, that
could leave as great an
impact on further gener-
ations as the election
year of 1860.
Today, we see our
country dominated by
two political parties -
one taken over by the
McGovernite socialists
in 1972, and the other


firmly controlled by the
Trotskyite (Lenin)
"Neocons" since 2000.
Both groups stand in
open hostility to the tra-
ditional religious,
moral, and constitution-
al framework upon
which this great
Republic was estab-
lished.
Both will lead us into
a socialist abyss absent
the decisive interven-
tion of the people!


They differ only in
their tactics, with the
mass media along for
the ride!
What to do?
Turn off the TV, put
down the remote and get
off the couch and get
busy saving our country
and with God's help, we
will prevail! Pray for
America.

IFAS helps all Floridians
By John Hoblick
President of Florida Farm Bureau
Federation

What is the future of Florida's agri-
culture industry?
I am often asked questions very sim-
ilar to this and I have given it a great
deal of thought.
As president of the state's only gen-
eral agriculture organization repre-
senting 143,000 member families, I can
say I see a bright future for Florida.
A year ago I was tapped to serve as
chair of a group of CEOs and directors
of agricultural associations and corpo-
rations seeking a shared industry-
wide vision. The Future of Agriculture
task force developed the vision that
agriculture will remain a pillar of
Florida's economy The leaders who
serve on the task force see agriculture
remaining an important economic
force into the 21st Century and, we
want to share that vision with Gov.
Charlie Crist, legislators, and Bernie
Machen, president of the University of
Florida.
Agriculture's bright future doesn't
come without challenges. Many of
these challenges will require collabo-
ration.
Which brings me to the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agriculture Sciences (UF/IFAS) and
the threat of substantial budget cuts
during this year's legislative session.
We all understand that the state is
facing a record revenue shortfall that
will require budget cuts across the
board. Specific- figures are not yet
available, but most certainly UF/IFAS
will face cuts; so will every other pro-
gram funded by the Florida


Florida needs tax and
spending limits
By Barry Poulson
The impressive margin of support
for Amendment One should not have
been a surprise. Florida is experienc-
ing a property-tax revolt, not unlike
that which led to Prop 13 in California
in the late 1970's. Floridians have
found their property taxes rising at
double-digit rates due to the "stealth
tax" of rising property values. Existing
limits on taxes and spending have
failed to constrain the increasing bur-
den of property taxes in Florida.
Taxes in Florida are at an all-time
high. In the last few years, state and
local taxes have captured about 10
percent of the state's income. At no
other time in the state's history have
state and local governments imposed
such a heavy tax burden on citizens.
Since the recession hit in 2001, local
property taxes have increased more
rapidly than personal income. From
1991 to 2004 local property taxes more
than doubled, from less than $10 bil-
lion to more than $20 billion. Florida's
property tax rates are among the high-
est in the country.
Much of the increase in local prop-
erty taxes can be attributed to the
housing bubble. During the early
years of this decade, property values
in many parts of Florida increased at
double digit rates. As property values
increased, assessed values increased
as well. In the last year, increases in
property values have moderated and
in some communities property values
have declined. At the same time, some
local jurisdictions in Florida have
been increasing property tax rates.

ing the consequences. After all, if res-
idents perceive that "tax price" is too
high for the government services
offered, they'll move to another juris-
diction. It's already occurring.
Businesses also assess the taxes they
pay relative to the government servic-
es they receive. If those services aren't
worth the taxes they pay, they'll relo-
cate. So the question is why cities
would nonetheless increase their
property taxes to such a high level that
they drive out residents and business.
They do it because city governments
may exert a kind of monopoly power
akin to that exercised by monopolies
in the private sector. The difference is
that the government can impose a
legal monopoly that may persist while
monopoly power in the private sector
tends to be eroded by competition in
the marketplace, unless it's protected
by legal restrictions on competition.
To the extent that a local govern-
ment can exert monopoly power, it can
rake in more property tax revenue
than it needs for essential services.
The resulting surplus is equal to the
difference between the revenue gen-
erated by the tax and the true value of
services provided to citizens by the
government.
That surplus is often used to reward
special interest groups and by politi-
cians and bureaucrats in the form of
bribes, kickbacks, and other forms of
corruption involving contracts to pur-
chase goods and services.
In addition, politicians and bureau-
crats may be paid wage and non-wage
benefits in excess of the value of the
services they provide. This is espe-
cially likely to be true when public
sector employees are unionized.


Indeed, public employees' pay and
perks often exceed those received by
comparable employees in the private
sector. Moreover, the unfunded liabili-
ty linked to pension and health bene-
fits for public employees has emerged
as a major problem.
At all levels of government in
Florida, the taxes imposed and the
revenue generated by those taxes -
have little relationship to the value of
government services provided. The
explanation for these taxes is redis-
tributive politics.
Florida would benefit from a more
effective tax and expenditure limit
referred to as the Taxpayer Protection
Amendment. The Taxpayer
Protection Amendment proposed for
Florida would: 1) limit the growth 'in
state spending to the growth of popu-
lation plus inflation, 2) ensure surplus
revenue above this amount is invested
in emergency and budget stabilization
funds or returned to taxpayers, and 3)
require voter approval for tax increas-
es or any weakening of the amend-
ments limits.
The proposed Taxpayer Protection
Amendment would constrain the
growth of revenue and spending and
stabilize the budget over the business
cycle. This amendment would also
establish a hard budget constraint that
would create incentives for tax
reform. Florida could begin to provide
much needed property tax relief and
reduce property tax rates.

Deputy is 'Most Wanted'


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

A local sheriff's deputy is a
nominee for "America's Most
Wanted" All-Star.
In case anyone is wonder-
ing, that's a good thing.
Actually, it's a very good
thing. Sumter Sheriff's
Deputy Edward Lorentzen
has been nominated for the
television show honor and is
contending online with other
first responders from around
the country for the title.
IfLorentzen's name sounds
familiar, it may be because
he was honored in January
with the Medal of Distinction
for rescuing a 17-year-old girl
from a burning car.
'All the recognition he gets,


he deserves," said Sheriff's
Lt Bobby Caruthers.
Lorentzen was nominated
because of his efforts to save
Linzi Wilkinson of Bushnell
when she crashed off County
Road 468 in Wildwood Sept.
11, 2007.
Lorentzen, 25, was driving
by and was within 75 feet of
her car when she crashed.
"I'm very, very blessed. I'm
very thankful. I know God put
him there," Wilkinson said in
an earlier interview with the
Times.
"The fire could have easily
(spread) ... the car would've
exploded and I would've
died."
Lorentzen also braved
power lines that were down
on Wilkinson's car, which


landed on its side, when he
rescued her.
Instead, Wilkinson suf-
fered only whiplash, minor
cuts, and bruises.
"We're very proud of
Deputy Lorentzen,"
Caruthers said in January.
"Law enforcement officers
dd brave and courageous
things on a day-to-day basis
and it's not often that we get
to acknowledge their deeds."
The winner of the "Most
Wanted" contest will receive
$10,000 and an 'All-Star
weekend" at the NASCAR
SPRINT Cup Series All-Star
Challenge. As of early this
week, Lorentzen was one of
about 90 nominees.

"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.

HOW BIZAAR How to get a good nights sleep
How to get a good night's sleep


Sandy Emmons and Ernie King show off some of the plants that were available at the annual
Bushnell United Methodist Church Spring Bazaar. Every year, the church hosts the event with a
rummage sale, plants and other goodies, breakfast and lunch. Shoppers can find a variety of
plants at bargain prices, including azales, holly plants and day lilies. The event took place last
weekend.


Do you have a problem
with insomnia?
Insomnia is having
difficulty getting to sleep and
staying asleep and
the feeling of
being unre-
freshed upon
awakening. This
is a problem most
people will expe-
rience at some
point in their life.
Studies show that
women are 20 to
50 percent more
likely than men to
have insomnia, MAR
especially during MADE
midlife.
What causes
insomnia? The most common
factors are poor sleep habits
or other lifestyle factors. Also
some medical conditions and
side effects of medications
will affect your ability to
sleep soundly. Insomnia may
also be related to a psychi-
atric condition, including
depression, stress or anxiety.
After the age of 50 your sleep
patterns will change and
individuals awaken more
easily.
What can you do to help get
that 'good night's rest you
need? First, you must identi-
fy the factor that is causing
your insomnia. You. could
keep a daytime diary and
sleep log to evaluate the situ-
ation. Now you need to look
at your daily and nightly
habits to see if you need to
make any changes.
By avoiding the following
you should be able to fall
asleep easier and sleep more
soundly. Caffeine should be
limited especially around
bedtime. Caffeine is found in
coffee, tea and sodas, choco-
late and medicines used to
treat headaches, pain, colds
and sinus congestion.
Nicotine affects sleeping, so
limit nicotine use and avoid
nicotine use close to bed-
time.
Alcohol should be elimi-
nated close to bedtime.


T1
X


Studies have shown drinking
alcohol within two hours of
bedtime tends to disrupt
sleep. Inactivity or the lack of
physical activity
during the day
affects sleep. But do
not exercise too
close to bedtime or
you may not be able
to fall asleep. Avoid
large meals close to
bedtime or eating
within three hours
of your bedtime.
Naps should be lim-
ited to less than 30
THA minutes.
DOx The best thing
you can do to help
yourself get a good
night's sleep is make a check-
list to see if your sleeping
environment is healthy. We
all have internal clocks that
regulate our sleeping so it is
best to have a routine we
stick to at all times if possi-


Insomnia is
having difficulty
getting to sleep
and staying
asleep and the
feeling of being
unrefreshed
upon awakening.



ble. When we try to sleep in
one day or weekend to catch
up or go to bed early, it
throws our clock off and
makes it harder to get into a
routine. It is best to try to go
to bed around the same time
each night and get up the
same time each morning.
Try these tips and see if
you have a more restful
night Unwind in the evening
before you go to bed. Take
some time to relax and de-
stress.
Minimize interruptions in
your bedroom by closing your


door, turning on a ceiling fan
or quiet music to just help
you relax and unwind. Get
comfy.
Be sure your bedroom is at
the right temperature, your
bed and pillow are comfort-
able and your night clothes
are relaxing and not tight fit-
ting. Limit your time in bed
and don't try to force yourself
to sleep.
Try sitting up reading a
book, watching TV, or work-
ing on a hobby until you
become drowsy and sleepy,
then go to your bedroom to
fall asleep. Hiding the clock
is an excellent idea because
if you are having trouble
falling asleep you will find
yourself checking the clock
often to see what time it is.
If all these tips fail and you
still have trouble sleeping, it
is time to seek professional
help.
Your rest is very important
and when it is jeopardizing
your health, safety, work or
relationships you must con-
tact your doctor.
The doctor will refer you to
a sleep specialist
The sleep specialist will do
a sleep history and perform
tests to find your sleep dis-
turbance.
You could have obstructive
sleep apnea (involves brief
pauses in breathing during
sleep and is caused .by col-
lapsd of the upper airway) or
restless legs syndrome (a
pulling, creeping, or tugging
sensation deep in the legs,
worse with rest, inactivity or
at night and is relieved by
movement).
There are treatments that
can control and minimize
both of these conditions.

Cr itr CHATTER




'was a huge success


he Big Fix, the first
free spay and neuter
clinic sponsored by the
Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County,
was a huge suc-
cess.
The 12-hour
event was held at
the Croom-A-
Coochee fire
department. We j
appreciate the .
kindness of -
Assistant District
Chief Walt Andes, .
who had the fire
department open LIN
by 5:30 a.m., and GRA
was very accom-
modating moving
equipment around for the
benefit of the clinic. Country
Oaks Veterinarian Mobile
Clinic arrived with two vet-
erinarians and six vet techs.
Because of the large amount
of animals signed up for the
clinic, two surgery units were
set up, one in the mobile clin-
ic, and the other in the fire-
house station.
Local citizens took advan-
tage of the opportunity to
have their pets altered. Their
responsible choice to bring
their pets to the clinic will
help alleviate the pet over-
population that plagues their
neighborhoods. Twenty-eight
dogs and 15 cats were altered
and given free rabiesvacci-
nations.
The "Big Fix" free spay/
neuter clinic was made possi-
ble by Humane Society/SPCA
grant writer Mary Chiles,,
who secured grants from the
DJ&T Foundation and the
Elinor Patterson Baker
Foundation. Special thanks
to Patricia Cheston, PA..
Frank Tabenar: vet tech, and
Nathan Evans who worked
non-stop caring for the ani-
mals before surgery and dur-


ing recovery, and to all our
other dedicated volunteers
who put in a long day for an
important cause.
Many dedicated
People came
together to make
possible this first
ever program in
our community.
Our appreciation
to, the Croom-A-
Coochee fire
department for
their hospitality
and assistance
throughout the day.
IDA Our thanks to
VES Country Oaks
Veterinarian Clinic
for excellent med-
ical services in a unique
environment, and to Sumter
DART Logistics, Inc. for the
use of their mobile shelter
equipment that was used to
house the animals.
Millions of adoptable ani-
mals are euthanized in our
country every year, just
because there are not enough
homes for them. Spay and
neuter is the answer to this
problem. The Humane
Society/SPCA of Sumter
County is taking a proactive
approach to the pet overpop-
ulation problem. Eliminating
the birth of millions of pup-
pies and kittens will eventu-
ally end the need to eutha-
nize adoptable animals in
shelters around-the country.
This program was only the
beginning of more to come.

Teen named Youth of the Year


David Wallace, a 14-year-old freshman at
,Leesburg High School, has been chosen to
represent the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lake
Sahd Sumter counties at the Florida Youth of
Ahe Year Celebration in Tallahassee, to be
*ifIarch 9 to 11, where he will compete with
',pther Youth of the Year winners from around
Pe state.
',He was chosen from a field of deserving
.eers after a rigorous selection process,
4cluding a series of essays, a personal pres-
Sentation and an interview process in front of
,.4 panel of judges.
David, an aspiring graphic designer, has
come a long way during the past few years,
,and credits the support of the Boys and Girls
Clubs with much of his success.
"There was a time that I displayed bad
morals such as cursing, and showing my
teachers disrespect. I wore my pants low, and
frequently skipped class. I didn't care for
school. Now, thanks to the Boys and Girls
Clubs. I am working hard to obtain a 3.0 GPA.
I study hard to ensure a great future for


myself."
-Besides the time spent at school and par-
ticipating in a leadership level in several of
the Boys and Girls Clubs programs, David is
also responsible for helping around the
house and overseeing his younger siblings.
"Sometimes I work 14-hour days, and
David takes care of household chores, home-
work and dinner preparation. He is a well-
mannered and disciplined son," says his
mother, Beulah Spencer.
In the nine years David has been-a member
of the club, he has become a valuable asset.
From conducting tours to working with
younger kids, David helps out wherever he is
needed.
"David is an excellent choice to represent
our Club. He demonstrates the positive qual-
ities that we try to develop in our members to
create future leaders of our community," said
Alicia Brinson, Unit Director at the Teeter
Unit
David is also quick to credit his friends at
the club with helping him become Youth of


the Year, and names his parents as his
heroes.
"I am so honored to be representing my
club in Tallahassee. They have taught me to
respect myself and everyone else. They have
helped me set goals to get where I want to
be in life. I will look back at my childhood
memories of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lake
and Sumter counties, knowing that if it was-
n't for the club, I would not have the will to
succeed like I do today," says David.
The mission of the Boys and Girls Clubs of
Lake and Sumter counties is to inspire and
enable all young people, especially those
who need us most, to realize their full poten-
tial as productive, responsible and caring cit-
izens.
Our Clubs offer programming in five key
areas: Character and Leadership
Development; The Arts; Sports, Fitness and
Recreation; Health and Life Skills; and
Education and Career Development through
the Teeter Unit in Leesburg and the NE Lake
Unit in Eustis.

If you're 17 years or under and you love to
fish, Tracy's Point has something just for you.
They're sponsoring their annual Youth
Fishing Tournament and a grand prize of
$500 for the winner.
And this year's tournament is expected to
yield two grand prize winners one between
the ages of six and 12 years, the other
between 13 and 17 years.
Slated for Saturday, April 5, the crowd
leaves for the challenge at first safe light,
according to Tracy's Point owner Steve Lind.
And it's Lind who plans to call just what
time safe light is that day. The grand prize
will be determined by the total weight of the
angler's top 10 pan fish bass, trash fish, etc,
do not count.
There'll also be different prizes for the
anglers who take second and third place and
for the largest trash fish (as in mud, gar and
pickerel fish). Lind said every entrant will be
a winner, receiving a gift bag, T-shirt and
more.
The entry fee also includes lunch from

Wildwood softball team


loses 11-0 to Citrus


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

A look at Wildwood High
softball coach Mary Jo
Wittenberg's face told you
she wasn't too happy.
The first-year coach had
her team run laps after
Citrus High downed the
Wildcats 11-0 in a game
Monday night at the Citrus
High field. Then the team
boarded the bus and went
home.
The Citrus High senior
catcher Ashley Smith took a
fastball down the middle
from Wildwood High pitcher
Ashley Cumbie and belted
the pitch over the fence in
straightaway center field at
the Citrus High softball field.
Inspired by Smith's display
of power, the Citrus High.
softball team beat Wildwood
High 11-0 in a 10-run "mercy
rule" five inning contest
Monday night
Smith finished with five
runs batted in and was three-
for-three.
Cumbie took the pitching
loss for Wildwood. She gave
up five runs on four hits, no
walks and two strikeouts in
two and two thirds inning.
Taylor Baker relieved in that
inning but ended up giving
up six more runs.


Wildwood is now 3-4 for the
season after the non-district
contest. Citrus is now 3-5 for
the season.
"It was definitely not one of
our better games," said
Wittenberg. "The biggest
thing is we are a young team.
One mistake happens. Two
mistakes happen. We get a
couple of runs down and we
fall apart. The other night,
we scored eight runs in two
innings.
"We are capable. I think
the biggest thing is these girls
.don't realize how good they
are and how good they could
be. As a coaching staff, we
see it. We need them to real-
ize what they can do and
what they are capable of as a
.team."
Wildwood had four hits.
Shelbie Pope and Shyra
Sesler both doubled but no
one reached home.
Citrus had 10 hits.
Before Smith's jacking,
Citrus's Sam Heaney singled.
The home run gave Citrus
the first runs of the game.
They would score five runs in
the third and four more in
the fifth to end the contest
Citrus High pitcher
Brittany Eldridge pitched a
complete game, scattering
four hits and tossing a
shutout. She walked no one
and struck out one. She was


supported by several out-
standing diving catches by
her teammates.
In the Citrus fifth inning,
Chelsy Usher reached on a
single and stole second and
third base. One out later,
Candie Smith doubled to
score Usher. Eldridge then
walked. Heaney doubled to
score Smith and Eldridge.
Ashley Smith singled to drive
in Heaney. Smith also scored.
The Canes wrapped up the
early victory with four more
runs in the fifth inning.
Marissa Maggiore led off
with a bunt single and stole
second. Usher then sacri-
ficed Maggiore to third. Jerry
Reeder, who replaced North
in the lineup, then singled to
score Maggiore. Candie
Smith walked. One out later,
Heaney singled to score
Reeder. Smith singled in the
final two runs of the game.
The Citrus High head
coach thought the Canes
acted more' like themselves
than they did Friday night
"We have a lot of God-given
talent," said Citrus head
coach Butch Miller.
"Sometimes, I think it is
youth. We don't realize how
good we can be. Tonight, we
had great defensive plays. We
swung the bat aggressively
and we didn't do it the other
night We ran the bases well."

nated team made too many.
mistakes.
"They (Belleview) are4
tough team," said Souih
Sumter coach Sharon Loori..
"We played them over theW.e
and they had us in fiy
innings. They hit well.
"We are young. Right now,:
we are sick. Routine plays,<'
have to make them." *

SGrace NOTES Learning to be the forgiven


Love and break-ups


T he other clay a friend
announced that she
had "b*'h'er. inp" with
her daughter.
She laughed as she said it,
Sbut there was a hint of seri-
ousness to her words. At any
r'ate, she was obviously
upset.
"What did your daughter
say about it"" I asked. I
couldn't imagine
. a mother actually ii '
doing something -
like that,
although I'm sure
it crosses most
moms' minds at
least occasionally.
"Oh, I didn't tell
her!" she said. "I
broke up with her
secretly Besides,
.-I don't think it's N
possible for a
mom to break up N,
ivith a child."
This friend and
S* often talk about daughters
- together. She has two, just
like I do.
Like mine, one is easier
and one is more complex.
It's the complex ones who
make us feel the most inse-
cure in our roles as moth-
ers.
My friend said she never
knows where she stands
with her daughter or what
her role is in her life. For
example, if her daughter
-doesn't call for a week or
'two, she wonders: Should I
calll her? Will I be an intrud-
i-ng mom if I call too often?
(And how often is too
often?)
Can I ask if she's paying
her bills on time, changing
.,'the oil in her car, drinking
,too much? Can I suggest she
go to church or clean her
,-bathroom? -
.*: "I feel like I did when I
was a teenager and I liked a
boy but wasn't sure if he
liked me back," my friend
said. "That's why I say I'm
'breaking up.' It hurts too
much sometimes to contin-
ue feeling this t ,
Preach it, sister.
Almost every mom I've


ever talked to feels this way
at one time or another,
especially moms with
daughters. It's all part of the
growing up process, I sup-
pose -- moms growing up as
well as their kids.
From what my friend said,
nothing traumatic took
place between her and her
daughter. No fight or harsh
words. She just
. didn't feel con-
nected to her any
more. She felt
obsolete, out of the
loop.
My friend want-
ed to be her
daughter's friend
Y and confidante
and share in her
secrets and hopes
and dreams. She
iCY wanted to feel
IUED liked by her
daughter but did-
n't. She wanted to
keep her daughter from
harm, knowing that it wasn't
possible. And she wanted to

"Our anger is
never completely
righteous; our
hurt and sadness,
even our love, is
tainted with self."

be important in her daugh-
ter's life again.
I told her I could relate,
that I think most moms
could. Our babies growing
up and growing away seems
a cruel cosmic joke at times.
It doesn't feel natural,
although neither does walk-
ing around with a 130-pound
child on your hip seem like a
viable option.
Still, it's hard for moms.
After I finished talking to
my friend I called my own
mom. I've gone months with-
out calling her before. Never
again, I vowed.
It made me wonder if God
ever feels bad like moms
sometimes feel. When his
kids don't pray, don't honor


him, don't turn to him except
when in crisis, does he feel
sad? Does he ever feel like
breaking up with them?
I know I can't assign
human emotions to God,
even though he has emo-
tions. As beings created in
his image, we and he experi-
ence joy and sadness, grief,
anger, love. However, our
emotions are always tinged
with sin.
Our anger is never com-
pletely righteous; our hurt
and sadness, even our love,
is tainted with self. It's com-
mingled with a need for
approval and affirmation
and acceptance.
When moms want to break
up with their children it's
because of self self-
preservation, self-protec-
tion. It hurts to let go and to
realize that you're no longer
needed in the same ways
that you were, and possibly
not needed any more at all.
Thankfully, God never has
those feelings because, well,
he's God and needs nothing
to be complete. He doesn't
need his children's
approval, doesn't need to
hear their voices on the
other end of the phone say-
ing, "I still love you."
He doesn't need that, but
we who call ourselves his
children do need to stay con-
nected, at least I do. I need
to stay reminded that he
loves me so I won't go off on
neurotic, insecure tangents,
wondering if I'm still OK
with him.
His love never changes.
His acceptance never
wavers. As impossible as it is
for a mom to break up with
her child, it's infinitely more
impossible for God to break
up with us, not ever. Not
even secretly.

NANCY KENNEDY
Special to the Times

Good news! Thanks to the
marvels of modern science
we now know that forgive-
ness is not only good for the
soul, but it's good for the
body, too.
According to results from
a forgiveness study conduct-
ed at Stanford University,
those who go through "for-
giveness interventions" -
sessions in which people
who have been hurt are
encouraged to develop more
positive feelings toward
their offenders can
improve cardiovascular
function, lessen chronic
pain, relieve depression,
lower blood pressure and
improve overall health.
Fred Luskin, director of
Stanford University's
Forgiveness Projects,
believes that forgiveness is a
skill that can be taught. He
defines forgiveness as "tak-
ing less personal offense,
reducing anger and the
blaming of the offender and
developing increased under-
standing of situations that
often lead to feeling hurt
and angry."
One of the goals of the
Forgiveness Projects is to
use forgiveness as a health-
care protocol. Take two
aspirins, get plenty of rest
and forgive two people twice
a day.
Call me cynical, but I don't
think it's that simple.
As psychologist Lewis
Smedes once wrote in
Christianity Today, "When
you release the wrongdoer
from the wrong, you cut a
malignant tumor out of your
inner life. You set a prisoner
free, but you discover that
the real prisoner was your-
self."
I agree that forgiveness
results in better health for
the forgiver; however, I don't
agree that forgiveness can
be taught or learned in a
classroom setting, a clinical
laboratory or on a psychia-


trist's couch.
In "The Peaceable
Kingdom," United
Methodist theologian
Stanley Hauerwas wrote,
"Our first task is not to for-
give, but to learn to be the
forgiven."
If I'm holding a grudge
against someone, yeah, I
need to forgive that person,
"God has said to
forgive and since
when he issues a
command he also
makes a way for
us to follow it,
then forgiveness is
possible."
but I can't unless and until I
understand how much I've
been forgiven.
That's what I believe.
I also believe that a person
can't truly forgive I'm not
talking about forgiving a
missed lunch date because
you forgot to mark it on your
calendar, but the deep, soul-
piercing wounds, the dam-
age to your psyche and the
destruction of your person
caused by another's willful
act without the interven-
tion of God.
Without the grace of God.
(It always comes back to
grace.),
The Bible says we are to
forgive just as in Christ we
have been forgiven
(Ephesians 4:32). However,
it's terribly difficult to for-
give deep offenses. I'll even
say it's impossible, except
that with God all things are
possible and nothing is
impossible with him.
Therefore, since God has
said to forgive and since
when he issues a command
he also makes a way for us to
follow it, then forgiveness is
possible.
But how? And what do you
do with all the hurt and bit-
terness and memories? Wave
it off like it's no big deal?
Sweep it under the rug?


Pretend like nothing ever
happened? Forgiveness is
possible, but it's not easy.
In my church's Reformed
theological tradition, we say
everything is a gift from God,
from the air we breathe to
our ability to repent. Our
very faith is a gift to which
we respond.
Likewise, the ability to for-
give is also a gift, an act of
grace. You can't drum up
grace or work for it. You cer-
tainly can't deserve it- it just
is. God gives it; you receive it.
That's how it is with forgiv-
ing those who trespass
against us, as it says in the
Lord's Prayer. For those
great trespasses that are
humanly unforgivable, God
graces us with the ability to
forgive. It can't be any other
way; at least that's what I
think.
So even though you can't
work up the ability to forgive,
you can ask God for it. You
can even pound on the door
of heaven and tell God how
much you don't want to for-
give the other person, but
because it's making your life
hell on earth, you want to at
least want to and would he
please give you the grace to
do it?
God's answer is always to
point to the Cross as if to say,
"You cannot truly forgive
until you know how much
you have been forgiven."
My lies, my deceit, my lazi-
ness, my love for comfort, my
turning a blind eye to those
in need my sin list is great,
and great the cost of my for-
giveness.
I have been forgiven much,
and as I continue to "learn to
be the forgiven," I also learn
to be one who forgives.
