Exploring

Sumter's

future

BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Ever wonder what the
future has in store for Sumter
County?
County government is going
to try and answer a portion of
that question during several
public workshops next month
aimed at addressing the next
20-some years of county,
growth.
Called Sumter 2030:
Visioning the Future of Our
Community, the workshops
had been set for two different
locations, on two different
dates.
The first series of work-
shops will be Thursday, April
10, at the Colony Cottage
Recreation Center, 510
Colony Blvd., in The Villages.
The second series will be at
the Sumter County
Agricultural Center (at the
county fairgrounds), 7620
State Road 471, south of
Bushnell.
Two workshops are
planned at each location on
those dates. Workshops are
set for 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and
then 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at both

AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

An 18-year-old Wildwood
woman was arrested in con-
nection with a shooting in
Leesburg on Friday.
Lecreasha Linzy, 18, of
Wildwood, is one of five sus-
pects being jailed for alleged
involvement in a shooting
incident and attempted rob-
bery that left a Leesburg man
hospitalized in serious condi-
tion.
The shooting happened
when Lori Linzy, 26, of
Groveland, tried to rob the.
occupants of a Leesburg
apartment and ended up
shooting a man in the back,
according to the Leesburg
Police Department
Lori Linzy, accompanied by
22-year-old Michelle Rada of
Leesburg, is suspected of
shooting and attempting to
rob a 25-year-old Hispanic
man at about 10 p.m. March 7
outside the apartment on

Drawing winner Emily Daughtry (center) with Supervisor of
Elections Karen Krauss and Hospice Director Ted Williams.


And the vacation winner is...


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

How would you like to spend a
nice relaxing week alongside
the ocean?
That's what one lucky Center
Hill resident is planning to do
this summer thanks to the
Sumter County Supervisor of
Election's Office.
Emily Daughtry was recently
named the winner of a drawing
held by the Supervisor of
Election's Office.
Proceeds from the drawing
amounted to $1,145 and while
Daughtry gets a seven-day stay
at the Daytona Beach Regency
in Daytona Beach, the funds
help with the construction cost
of the Lane Purcell Hospice
House.
The lodging accommodations


include two bedrooms and two
baths, full kitchen, private bal-
cony, in-room Jacuzzi all just a
few steps away from the board-
walk by the ocean.
The Lane Purcell Hospice
House is currently under con-
struction by Hospice of Lake
and Sumter, in Sumterville, near
the Thomas Langley Medical
Center.
At an estimated cost of $2.6
million, thb facility should be
completed in mid 2008.
The home is intended to offer
the most comprehensive care
available to terminally ill
patients.
It is dedicated to the memory
of Lane Purcell, a local commu-
nity leader who died early in
2005. Purcell was the owner of
Purcell Funeral Home in
Bushnell. He died in a vehicle
accident


In the meantime, while build-
ing progresses, Hospice of Lake
and Sumter continues to accept
donations for the facility.
Donations can range from mon-
etary contributions to cars, boats
or property.
The Supervisor of Elections
Office got on board in 1995,
sponsoring fundraisers and
donating their own money.
Almost since the beginning,
members of the staff have donat-
ed a portion of their paychecks
to the cause. That effort allowed
them to add another $733 to the
check recently passed on to
Hospice Director Ted Williams.
Between those fundraisers
and staff donations, the office
has donated nearly $14,000.
For additional information
about donating to the Lane
Purcell Hospice House, contact
Hospice at 343-1341.

County Fair


continues


he weather might be questionable this week,
but the Sumter County Fair isn't. Without a
doubt, this year's fair is drawing the crowds
with new rides, kitchen renovations and an expand-
ed community exhibit, according to Erin Munz, of
the Sumter County Fair Association.
This year's midway apd front gate numbers are up,
and she credits it to the addition of a roller coaster
and three more rides on the midway, more live
entertainment, the new fair kitchen and an expand-
ed community project exhibits.
"The roller coaster is definitely a big hit," she
said.
They've also received a lot of compliments on the
new kitchen, which includes new appliances and
new tables the entire restaurant has been renovat-
ed and is currently being run by the Speckled
Butterbean.
The community exhibits open class exhibits for
challengers sharing their talent in cooking, canning,
quilting, painting, photography and crafts is also a
big draw this year with dozens of exhibitors and
even more projects.

locations.
"This strategic visioning
process provides a couple of
opportunities for us for a
county," said County
Administrator Bradley
Arnold.
The process will involve
input from municipal govern-
ments as well as citizens.
"This is also a precursor
and ties right into our ...
update to our comprehensive
plan."
During the workshops,
county government represen-
tatives will discuss a visioning
process to determine future
growth in the county, accord-
ing to Arnold.
City leaders are also being
invited to attend and present
their thoughts, according to
Arnold.
The workshops aren't just
about the future as it relates
to development; though that's
a large part of it, Arnold said
the county is looking to hear
about other topics and social
concerns, like affordable
housing.
"This is our opportunity to
raise these concerns or
issues," he said.
"Sumter County has experi-
enced tremendous change in
the past decade," according to
a workshop press release.
"Pressures for change con-
tinue. A countywide vision of
the future allows for this
change to be managed and
assure the quality of life of all
citizens of Sumter County.
"Anyone with an interest in-
the future of Sumter County is"'
encouraged to attend,"
Arnold said.



FAIR

continued from Page 1
There's also a live butterfly
exhibit in the community hall.
"People are very excited,"
Munz said.
And while the Aaron Tippin
concert and the annual live-
stock sale have already taken
place, there's still plenty of
fair and plenty to do.
Every night this week, fair-
goers can check out
Gunslinger a monster truck
based in Brooksville, but on
display at the fair.
This weekend, it's profes-
sional wrestling on Friday
night and a demolition derby
on Saturday night. Goat and
dairy shows are slated for
Saturday in the daytime.
Wrestling starts at 7:30 with
doors open at 7 p.m.
Scotty2Hotty, Lexy Fife and
Hector Guerrero will be on
hand.
The demolition derby starts
at 7 p.m. and fireworks are
slated to follow.
The goat show is at 9 a.m.,
the dairy at noon.
A stormy Friday night
affected the first night of this
year's fair, sending folks
inside for cover and changing
the venue for Tippin's con-
cert.
While the association had
hoped to have the concert in
the outdoor arena where they
can seat 5,000, they were
forced to move things inside
to an expo hall and limit seats
to just over 1,000.
But even with the rain and


location change, the concert
was sold out.
Tippin performed after
fans listened to Dan Story and
Jim Van Fleet.

vehicle after the crash and left in another truck. No injuries
were immediately reported.

Thanks for



the fair fun


As Sumter County works its
way through the week of the
annual county fair, there's
plenty of effort to be recognized.
There are coordinators and plan-
ners and laborers there's a brand
new kitchen and restaurant on the
grounds and the effort that put it
together was pretty much volun-
teer.
That meant new tables, new
appliances and renovated walls
and floors.
That meant days of intense labor.
As a matter of fact, almost all of
the fair is a volunteer event there
are volunteers who serve on the
board and then work the grounds -
they stand at gates, they mop water
from cement floors, they coordi-
nate events, they deal with prob-
lems and so on.
And remember, it's not an event
that just takes place in a few days.


The planning for the event goes on
year 'round.
Ideas and agendas are consid-
ered and reconsidered.
The Aaron Tippin concert is a
perfect example. It almost didn't
happen when the first date didn't
work out. Then the concert was
slated for the outdoor stadium, but
the line of storms changed the
venue. That had to be coordinated,
worked out and redesigned.
It happened.
We'll breeze through the grounds,
settle in for entertainment, take a
ride on the midway, enjoy some-
thing yummy to eat or browse the
exhibits and chances are pretty
good that the person who took our
ticket at the gates or answered a
question by the door, put in plenty
of effort to make sure we'd have a
great time today so here it is, in a
nutshell... thanks!


Central Florida's low-income families
often live "at the edge of financial catas-
trophe," and their middle-income
brethren struggle with high debt, a lack
of health insurance and worries that
they are not prepared financially to
retire, according to a new University of
Central Florida study
Sociologists James Wright and Jana
Jasinski, of UCF's Institute for Social
and Behavioral Sciences, released the
first comprehensive survey on "Poverty
in Central Florida" today. Based on sur-
veys of more than 1,400 Central
Floridians, the analysis focuses on the
concerns facing the working poor, a
group that has grown in the past decade
as a result of welfare reform.
"The real surprise in our data is how
far into the middle income categories
financial hardship and anxiety have
penetrated," Wright and Jasinski wrote.
A quarter of the middle-income group
reported that they have no savings
accounts, nearly one in five are not cov-
ered by any health insurance plan and
half are concerned that their retirement
planning is inadequate.
The survey, administered in summer
and fall 2007, covered Orange, Osceola,
Seminole, Lake and Sumter counties.
Wright stressed that the general patterns
revealed in the Central Florida study are
true to some degree everywhere in the
nation.
The study designated low income as
households earning no more than half of
the area's median income. Locally, that
means families earning about $30,000
per year or less. Middle income is
defined as earning 50 to 120 percent of
the area's median income, or about
$30,000 to $70,000 a year in Central
Florida.
The study's findings include the fol-
lowing;
n Low-income profile: 49 percent of
low-income people reported that they
are v.,irkini;, 16 percent each are dis-


abled or retired and 9 percent are stu-
dents or housewives. Only 10 percent are
laid off, unemployed or otherwise eco-
nomically idle.
Housing: 78 percent of low-income
residents and 50 percent of middle-
income residents reported spending
more than 30 percent of their incomes on
housing. In addition, 60 percent of low-
income renters reported spending more
than half of their incomes on housing.
Federal guidelines say families should
not spend more than 30 percent of their
income on their rent or mortgage plus
utilities.
One paycheck away: 56 percent of
low-income respondents said they could
not pay their bills if they missed one
month's pay. Surprisingly, 38 percent of
middle-income respondents and 24 per-
cent of upper-income respondents made
that same claim.
Debt; 25 percent of low-income, 14
percent of middle-income and 10 per-
cent of upper-income families said they
are so far in debt that they feel "they will
never be able to get out."
Retirees: There is a "very sizable
pocket" of low-income retirees in
Central Florida, and most of them are
less-educated, widowed women.
Workforce Central Florida, the Heart
of Florida United Way, Orange County
government and UCF's Metropolitan
Center for Regional Studies all provided
financial support for the study
UCF Stands For Opportunity: The
University of Central Florida is a metro-
politan research university that ranks as

Our next
commander-in-chief
It is not an understatement to say
that in this critical election year, not
only will the leadership of the free
world be decided but the near-term
future of democracy may also be
affected by the outcome of the presi-
dential election.
The next president of the United
States of America will be the com-
mander-in-chief of the best trained,
best equipped military force in the
history of this planet The fate of our
nation, our allies and all freedom-
loving people may depend on when
and how that force is or is not
deployed in the next four years.
The next president of the United
States of America will need to con-
tend with radical Islamic militants
whose stated objective is to destroy
western civilization and modernity.
While bin Laden may be the titular
head of this movement, its influence
extends far beyond him and his fol-
lowers hiding out in the mountains
on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
It is a global threat that requires
global solutions.
The next president of the United
States of America will need to con-
tend with the ever increasing aspira-
tions of Venezuelan dictator Hugo
Chavez. With complete control of the
Venezuelan military and treasury he
is rapidly developing the resources
to wreack havoc in our own hemi-
sphere.
Senator John McCain is a genuine
war hero, with genuine military
leadership credentials and experi-
ence. Senator John McCain is a
proven coalition builder. Senator
John McCain has the ability to unite
our nation and the free world.
Now for the sake of our nation,
now for the sake of our children and
grandchildren, it is time for the


American people to unite behind
Senator John McCain.

n our fitness-conscious and
competitive world, there are
multitudes of self-styled nutri-
tion "experts" who have plenty of
advice to offer, many
with a product to sell. -
For parents of athletes,
the choices can be
overwhelming as they
seek to provide that -
competitive edge to
their children through
proper nutrition. If
you're packing for long '
days on soccer side-
lines, wrestling mats,
baseball fields, swim-
ming pools, tracks or MAR"
any number of strenu- MADI
ous sports activities for
your children, knowing
how to provide the right fuel
throughout the day can be confus-
ing, according to Family Album
Radio's Linda Bobroff and Donna
Davis.
According to nutrition experts,
except for energy (calories) and
water, nutritional needs are basi-'
cally the same for people who
exercise for fun and health, for
athletes, and for those who are


less active. Using MyPyramid as a
guide to eating well for fitness and
health can help parents provide
their young athletes with good
nutrition for training
- and competition. And,
while well-nourished
athletes don't require
supplements of protein,
amino acids, vitamins, or
ergogenic aides such as
chromium or creatine as
many marketers might
have you believe, there
are certain nutritional
steps your young athlete
can take to maximize his
rHA or her performance.
Dox For starters, a high-
IM carbohydrate diet pro-
vides energy for training
and competition. By eating a high-
carbohydrate diet each day, your
child will have a ready supply of
glucose when it's needed.
Likewise, make certain your ath-
lete is well hydrated by consuming
cool water before, during and
after exercise. Dehydration
decreases performance and can
cause serious harm to the body.
During intense exercise lasting


longer than an hour, commercial
sports drinks are even better than
water as they replace the sodium
and electrolytes lost during exer-
cise. And while these tips will help
children during their sports activ-
ities, the same rules hold true for
the adult athletes in your family!

County Commission tightens noise ordinance


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Sumter County commission-
ers approved a change to the
county's nuisance noise ordi-
nance Tuesday in light of
recent complaints about a
Lake Panasoffkee gasoline
station.
The county has set specific
noise levels allowed under
the ordinance.
A noise level greater than 60


decibels within 1,000 feet of
the location generating the
noise in a residential area is
considered a "noise distur-
bance."
A level greater than 75 deci-
bels within 1,000 feet, regard-
less of the surrounding land
use, is considered a "noise
disturbance" under the ordi-
nance.
The change to the ordi-
nance, unanimously approved
Tuesday, followed complaints
to the county and the sheriff's


office about Lorenzo's, a
Chevron gas station and week-
end tikii bar" involving alco-
hol sales and outdoor music.
Many of the complaints about
the business involved loud
music.
Residents a half-mile away
from the business have com-
plained about the noise there,
according to County


Administrator Bradley.
Arnold. The change is meant'
to help sheriff's deputies
enforce the ordinance.
"This is an opportunity for
them to be able to have the
law behind them" to correct
the problem, he said.
County Commissioner Doug
Gilpin, who represents the
Lake Panasoffkee area,


defended Lorenzo's and said
discretion should be used
when dealing with the busi-
ness.
"He (the owner) wants to
obey the law and he's a good
honest citizen trying to make a
living," Gilpin said. "There
are many people in the Lake
Panasoffkee area that enjoy
going there so I don't want to
put a damper on any honest
activities that's going on."
The sheriff's office plans to
provide deputies with meters


to measure noise levels,
Arnold said.
Penalties begin with a ver-
bal Warning.
If another noise distur-
bance is committed within 120
days of a verbal notice being;
issued, the offending party
will receive an additional
penalty, according to the ordi-
nance.
The maximum penalty for
violations of the nuisance
noise ordinance is $500 or 60
days in jail.

Church building campaign
The United Church of

rich history. Since December
of 2003, we have been meeting
in various locations (in our
homes, Hope Lutheran
Church, Skyline Conference
Center, Seventh Day Adventist
Church, and currently at
Temple Shalom). The Florida
UCC Conference helped us
purchase land on C.R. 101 in
2004 and we are now ready to
build our church home. We
are building our future ...
guided by faith. Hallelujah!
The campaign will conclude
on Sunday, March 30, with a
Celebration Service at
Temple Shalom.
Our pastor, the Rev. Dr. C.
William Wealand, has helped
our family of faithful people
on this journey to create a
home:
a home for our family
gatherings
a home for our family
work and service
a home for our family
spirit
This home, the new church
building, is not the church. It
is the home in which the
church gathers, worships, and
works. This home will be the
place where the church fami-
ly's heart is. It is with eager-
ness and excitement that we
begin this work of creating our
faith family's home.
We are an open and affirm-
ing church and we believe
that God is still speaking.
Please join us and share in
our joy during this journey!

Dealing with mini me


t five-foot, one-inch I'm
little.

I'm not as little as Phyllis
Gorski Houghton,
but littler than .
Laura Isaacs and
she's little.
Years ago, Randy
Newman wrote a
song about short
people. He said we
have "little baby
legs" and we "stand
so low" and that big
people like him
have to pick us up
just to say hello. NA
He said we've got KEN
"little cars that go
beep, beep, beep"
and little voices that go "peep,
peep, peep."
As a little person, I also
have abnormally little hands
and tiny crooked fingers. I
wear the ruby chip ring that
my husband wore when he
was maybe 3 or 4.
When I went for my Air
Force enlistment physical, the
guy who was about to draw my
blood asked if the doctor saw
my "deformity."
I was incredulous! "What
deformity?" I asked.
"Um. Your hands."
Being little definitely has its
drawbacks. I can't see a
parade or a live snake han-
dling demonstration without
being up front. Ican't see the
dust on top of my fridge and I


have to pull my car's seat way
up so my short legs can reach
the pedals.
On the other short, little
hand, being petite
Also has its advan-
tages,. like being
called "petite."
Being little means
being first in a size
order line and put
in front in a group
photo.
It also means I'm
able to hide in
plain sight if I want
to. I can be in the
iCY middle of a crowd
4EDY and be unnoticed.
- It makes eaves-
dropping a whole
lot easier.
I've always been little, and
the older I get the littler I feel,
not just physically, but other
ways, too.
I've been thinking a lot late-
ly about the bigness of the
world the vastness of pover-
ty and need, even the need in
my own community. It's over-
whelming and it makes me
feel helpless and impotent to
do anything about it.
I so badly want to make a
difference, but how? Where
do I start? And what differ-
ence can a little person like
me make?
My friend Tara heads the
mercy ministry at our church.

"We hope that other organi-

be aware of the ongoing need
and offer their assistance to
The Salvation Army."

been making some special
appeals to help keep their
pantry stocked. During
February, the pantry sup-
plied 960 pounds of food to
107 people. In 2007, the

families. Working with the
United Way of Lake and
Sumter Counties and the
Human Care Network, 98,852
pounds of food were distrib-
uted to 8,604 people in
Sumter County. The need
continues to grow with more
families facing crisis due to


climbing gasoline and utility
costs, as well as job losses
and reduced work hours.

Thompson to bring youth, enthusiasm to Wildwood football coach job


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

The new Wildwood High
School head football coach is a
27-year-old energetic, enthusias-
tic man who has the nickname of
"Dude."
Friday morning, Wildwood
High principal Richard
Hampton introduced to local
media a native of London,
Kentucky named Matthew
Thompson as the new coach. He
replaces Robert Lindsey who
resigned recently without giving
a reason for his resignation.
Thompson played inside line-
backer at Union College and
Western Kentucky University
before four collarbone surgeries
ended his football career. He
graduated from Western
Kentucky in 2004.
His father, 'Ernest Thompson
Sr., was a three-time All
American football player at
Eastern Kentucky University.
Thompson is currently head
coach at Paris High School in
Paris, Kentucky but he will come
down as often as possible to run
spring football practice at
Wildwood later this spring.
Thompson said he will teach
English next year when he
comes to school in Wildwood. He
will finish his year as a teacher
at Paris High.
He comes to Wildwood after
assistant coaching jobs at Corbin
High in Kentucky, Henry County
High in Kentucky and
Melbourne Central Catholic in
Melbourne, Florida.
He brings a strong back-
ground as a defensive coach to
the Wildcats position.
People at Melbourne Central


Catholic High advised
Thompson that Wildwood would
be a good place to coach.
"They said this is something
you need to go after," Thompson
said. "There is something spe-
cial there (at Wildwood). They
(at Melbourne Central Catholic)
told me this is a very special
place as far as location in
Florida. They always had posi-
tive dealings with the people
here, felt it was a great commu-
nity, but they also thought that
the football program is on the
brink We could be highly suc-
cessful in the 2B classification. I
know this class well.
"I think we have the tools here
and hopefully, we will have the
hard-working staff. I think
everything is here for us to com-
pete at a high level in this class."
Thompson said he wants to
train quality student-athletes.
"I'm an educator first," he
said. "I will be an educator on
the football field. I am a full
believer that the football field is
an extension of the classroom.
We will treat our kids not just as
an opportunity to.win games or
not to get better as athletes but
an opportunity to be better men,
to go on and do better things."
He said he will take advantage
of some sick leave to come down
from Kentucky and conduct as
much of spring practice as possi-
ble.
"I plan on being here for two
full weeks of spring practice," he
said. "Paris has been very sup-
portive."
Thompson said he once drove
through this community and
drove around Wildwood.
"That's why it was so haunting
for me when the position came
open," he said. "I always thought

it would be a pretty neat place to
live and then I got all these con-
tacts about this job. I am a great
believer in destiny.
"I'm looking forward to getting
settled in."
Thompson said 27 is young for
a coach.
"I always call myself 39 as a
coach," he said. "I am going to
stay there forever even when I'm
50. I think I have a great wealth
of knowledge and experience.! I
want us to compete at a high
level, but I also want our kids to
go on to college and go out and
do great things and come back to
make Wildwood a better place."
Thompson said he is going to
start studying film of the
Wildcats to find out where their
needs are.
"I believe that 11 kids regard-
less of athletic build, size or
strength who will work hard for
themselves and their coaches
will be a very successful group,"'
Thompson said. "It won't take
me long to assess talent"
Thompson said he would start
assessing his coaching staff
Friday.
"We are going to run the
defense and offense that best fits
our kids," he said. "I have a
defense that I created. I have a


playbook that I have written and
that is in the process of being
published. It's based on a lot of
college principles but it's a lot
simpler We can dip in and out of
the 3-4. We can run a 6-1. We can
run a 52, roll into a monster
Four. We can run a Cover 2 but it
is very simple. The great thing is
that it is very simple.
"The kids have to know exact-
ly what to do in every situation."
Thompson said he hopes to
have Lindsey as a mentor and
friend.
"Every coach wants to be able
to leave a legacy," he said. "The
legacy that I want to leave is that
I was here for the kids. I was
somebody that they could go to.
Someone who can help them be
better men.
"It is very appealing, this posi-
tion, because I feel that with the
support, and I think this is a phe-
nomenal campus and I think this
is an incredible place. There is
that hump, so to speak, and it
will take a special effort to get
over it
"We are going to bring a cham-
pionship level of coaching here.
We want our kids to be better
men. We are going to bring that
caliber of coaching here. This is
a great program, a pretty good


tradition. Hopefully, we can take
that momentum and create
something really special."
Thompson said he would take
all the kids he could get and
make those kids feel good about
themselves.
"I am here to help these kids
in every way, shape and form,"


Thompson said. "I want to be an
inspiration in all aspects of the
things they are doing and help
them be better men. That's the
main goal. Hopefully, in doing
that, we will bring a charisma
and enthusiasm and an attitude
towards this game that kids will
want to be part of."


South Sumter suffers

loss to Dunnellon


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

For three innings, the
Dunnellon High and South
Sumter High softball team had a
pretty decent battle. Sadly, three
errors and some Dunnellon hit-
ting gave South Sumter another
loss. Kasey Fagan jacked a
three-run home run, a triple, a
sacrifice fly and pitched the
Tigers (9-0 overall and 8-0 .in
Class 4A-District 6) beat South
Sumter 11-1 in a five-inning
"mercy rule" victory.
South Sumter junior hurler
Sarah Russo (2-8) pitched four


Fagan homers,
pitches Dunnellon to
11-1 win over
South Sumter
innings and took the loss.
Fagan (5-0) was also the win-
ning pitcher. She held South
Sumter. (3-11) to three hits,
struck out seven and walked
one. Dunnellon made three
errors, unusual for the Tigers.
South Sumter was first to
score. Leadoff batter Audra
Mazak reached on an error but

She and I talk often about how
best to feed hungry people,
and not just feed them, but
help them to get out of pover-
ty. We don't know how. There
are so many where do we
even start?
The other night I saw a
news report about a medical
team that spent a week in a
rural place, in Tennessee I
think They treated thousands
of people for free, but had to
turn away about 500 people
waiting in line because their
week was up.
What about the calls we get
here at the paper, pleas for
help after house fires and cat-
astrophic illnesses? So much
crime and poverty, hunger
and abuse, desperation, need,
despair.
What about the people who
have plenty but who are spiri-
tually poor? Not everyone
embraces Jesus, and there's
nothing I can do to change
another person's heart or
mind, and that makes me feel
very, very little.
Too often my littleness
becomes too big for me to han-
dle. I forget God's bigness, his
infinite enormity and how he
can take whatever little I have
and multiply it to serve his
purpose.
Last week my pastor told a
story about a little boy and a

Charles A. Screws,
77, plumber
Charles Anderson Screws,
77, of Mayo, died Sunday,
March 9, 2008. He was born
Jan. 3, 1931 in Emanuel, Ga.
He was a plumber. He served
in the U.S. Army during the
Korean War. He was a mem-
ber of Pleasant Hill Baptist
Church. He is survived by his
wife, Minnie Screws of Mayo;
a daughter, Elaine Eddie
Duval of Bushnell; sons, Andy
Screws of Sarasota, and Mike
Screws of Bushnell; step-


his vast field. My pastor said,
"All his smallness was
enveloped by (the man's) big-
ness." His point: The boy did-
n't do anything but hop on the
tractor; the man did the rest.
It was his field, his job to plow
it, yet he invited the little boy
to "help."
My pastor's sermon was in
the context of being generous
with our stuff, giving it away
and trusting God to use it to
further his kingdom and to
care for his little ones who
dare to risk That doesn't just
apply to giving away our stuff,
but our very selves for the
sake of the gospel.
"Our little lives make a dif-
ference," he said, "because
they're wrapped up in God's
bigness."
I walked out of church, with
my little baby legs, encour-
aged that maybe being little
was OK after all. God doesn't
ask me to do everything, just
what I can, and if he wants to,
he'll make it big.

He has a new


in his life


Daniel Hickey has a
new Lady in his life.
It was love
at first sight. He -
knew the moment
he saw her that she
was the one for
him.
Daniel and his
Lady have been
seen cruising
around town, and
they are planning
camping trips and
vacations together. N
The blonde beauty LIR
has the perfect GR
personality. She is
playful and fun loving and is
happy to go wherever Daniel
wants to go.
Daniel first met Lady at
Animal Control. He didn't


N
*


expect to find the perfect
Lady there, but there she
was! Lady is a
-1 great companion
and fun to be with.
And oh, by the
way, Daniel's not in
the dog house with
his wife Rikki;, she
approves of the
,- 2 new Lady in his
life.
Are you search-
ing for love in all
the wrong places?
IDA Do you want to find
VES that perfect
match? Have you
checked out your
local Animal Control facility
or Humane Society? What
are you waiting for?
You would be surprised at


Warm weather is upon us
and small children are
very curious.
Remember to keep
constant supervision on
them at all times,
especially outdoors
near water.







?/18194

We love and miss you very much -
Karen, James, Ricky & Phillip


how many wonderful dogs
and cats are at Animal
Control or with the Humane
Society/SPCA. Call Animal
Control at 352-793-1470 or the
Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County at 352-793-
9117 and make arrangements
to see some of the wonderful
pets available for adoption.
When you adopt a shelter
pet, you are saving a precious
life. Sadly, most animals that
are in Animal Control are
there at no fault of their own.
Some were left behind when
the family moved; some grew
from the cute little puppy or
kitten to unwanted adults;
others were turned in when a
new spouse joined the family
and didn't want the pet; the
list of excuses goes on and on


and on.
Bottom line is that too
many loving animals find
themselves homeless. They
are living, breathing, sentient
beings. Given a chance, they
will be our best friends. And
yet, they were tossed out,
without a care as to what
their fate will be.
Please adopt a shelter ani-
mal. You are their only hope.
Don't support the puppy
mills and backyard breeders.
Remember the saying,
"When you buy, one will die."
Thousands of dogs and cats
loose their lives every year,
because no one comes to
adopt them. Lady got lucky
when she found a home. And
Daniel and his family got
lucky with the loving com-
panionship of a special Lady.


Daniel Hickey and Lady are out for a ride.

Lots to see and do

for SECO members


SECO Annual Meeting is
Saturday, March 29


Sumter Electric Co-
operative (SECO) will con-
duct its Annual Meeting of
the Membership on Saturday
morning, March 29. The
meeting will take place on
the grounds of the Co-op's
headquarters compound in
Sumterville.
This year SECO marks its
70th Anniversary and the
theme for the meeting is con-
servation. Members will be
able to see many practical
ways that they can reduce
their electric bills and save
energy at the same time.
"Our annual meeting is
attended by many members
from all across our service
territory and is always a
great event," said SECO CEO
Jim Duncan.
At this year's Saturday
morning meeting, those
attending will be treated to
entertainment and refresh-
ments. In SECO's
Technology and Conser-
vation Tent, members will
see a wide range of displays
giving them the knowledge
they need to make real
inroads into conserving


energy.
Each registered member
receives a free gift and is eli-
gible for the big raffle at the
end of the business meeting.
Top prizes include one
$1,000 and three $500 cash
awards. There is also a host
of other major prizes that
will be given away during the
drawing.
Registration for the event
begins at 8:30 a.m. on
Saturday morning and con-
tinues until the business
meeting starts at 10:30 a.m.
"The annual meeting is
one of the things that distin-
guish electric cooperatives
from other types of utilities.
Aside from having a lot of fun
and learning more about
their co-op, members get to
interact one-on-one with the
employees who work on
their behalf all through the
year," concluded Duncan.
SECO is a member-owned,
not-for-profit utility serving
164,000 members and their
families in parts of Marion,
Lake, Citrus, Sumter, Pasco,
Hernando and Levy coun-
ties.


LOSS
continued from Page 8
was thrown out trying to steal
second base. Heather Speer
then singled, reached second on
a wild pitch and scored on
another error.
Dunnellon struck back with
three runs in the first inning.
Sami Fagan singled and stole
second base. Tory Williams fol-
lowed with a single. Kasey
Fagan then hit a sacrifice fly to
center to score her sister. Dallas
Towns then doubled to score
Williams and Towns scored on
Holly Roberson's sacrifice fly
Dunnellon added two more
runs in the third inning. Kasey
Fagan led off with a triple to
right field and Towns walked.
Roberson singled to score Fagan
and Towns.
Fagan, who was 2-for-2 with
four runs batted in, blasted the
three-run home run in the
fourth inning. It was a nice arch-
ing shot over the left-field fence.
The Tigers finished off the
game with three runs in the fifth
inning. Danielle Burns reached
on an error but was forced out as
Caylee Underwood reached
base. Sami Fagan then singled.


Underwood scored on an error.
Tory Williams tripled to score
Fagan and Williams scored on a
wild pitch.
Williams scored three runs
and was 2-for-3 with an RBI.
Towns was 2-for-2 with two runs
and an RBI. Roberson had three
RBIs. Underwood scored two
runs.
As usual, the Tiger hitting was
there as they had 11 hits, includ-
ing a home run and two triples.
"I feel like we played decent
ball," said coach Kevin Fagan. "I
think maybe they weren't as
intense. We beat this team up
earlier. I tried yelling at them.
"They were dodging bullets at
the beginning. I think this is a
very talented team, but I don't
feel like the pitching will take us
very far in the playoffs. I think
we need to be sharper."
The young South Sumter team
had problems in the late
innings.
"I think they played about
four innings pretty well," said
South Sumter coach Sharon
Looney. "We kind of blew up. I
don't know if we lost our focus.
Again, the errors got us. We have
seven freshmen on the team. I
just think we need to keep at it.
We need to practice our funda-
mentals."

The Sumter County

Longbeards chapter

earns national award


The Sumter County
Longbeards Chapter of the
National Wild Turkey
Federation received two LA
Dixon Memorial Chapter
Awards during the NWTFs
annual Convention and Sport
Show in Atlanta, Feb. 21 to Feb.
24,2008.
The Sumter County
Longbeards Chapter of Florida
was recognized by the NWTF
for sponsorship achievement
for having 122 sponsor mem-
bers, and as the second runner-
up in the best local chapter cat-
egory. The Sumter County
Longbeards Chapter has been
a leader in the NWTF's chap-
ter system, and a credit to the
NWTE
"Our chapters and volun-
teers are our greatest asset,
and the lifeblood of the
NWTF," said Rob Keck, NWTF
CEO. "Their support makes the
NWTF's work possible. We
honor our chapters for their
efforts through the LA Dixon
awards because we know who
makes the NWTF so great."
The L.A Dixon Memorial
awards are given in honor of a


man who gave unselfishly dur-
ing the NWTF's early years.
Dixon founded the North
Carolina State NWTF chapter,
served at the national, state
and local levels and traveled
thousands of miles at his own
expense carrying the NWTF's
message to all who would lis-
ten. The NWTF honors Dixon's
achievements through the LA
Dixon Memorial Chapter and
Banquet awards.
The LA Dixon awards are
given to local, state and provin-
cial chapters that excel at con-
servation fund raising, educa-
tion and outreach events.
Chapter awards honor year-
round performance, while ban-
quet awards honor one-time
banquet performance.
Last year, 2,300 NWTF chap-
ters hosted Hunting Heritage
Super Fund banquets to raise
funds for the NWTF's conser-
vation and outreach initiatives.
For more information about
the NWTF's LA Dixon awards

UDC Granville Beville Chapter No. 2234 collects goods for needy


The United Daughters of
the Confederacy met at the
home of Marilyn Barnes,
Bushnell. There was a brunch
served to start off our meet-
ing. We collected cancelled
stamps, pennies for educa-
tion, nickels, pop tops and
canned goods for the needy to
be given to the First Baptist
Church of Bushnell.
President Joyce White gave
the greeting and Chaplain
Carolyn Shaw led us in our
ritual. Bettye Jemison read
our Southern Poetry,
"Foreward: Bitter Berries" by
Dianne Drake Boren. The
program for the month was
done on Flag Conservation,
the care of our hallowed ban-
ners was done by Joyce White
with Megari Black assisting.
The Confederate Battle flags
were shown. Flags, whether
the First National, the Second


National, the battle flag
issued by the quartermaster,
and handmade flags of indi-
vidual design bore the dirt,
smoke, and blood of battle.
Ripped and torn by shells and
the wear of war took its toll on
these flags.
The old flag was often sent
home and replaced with a
new one. Some were not given
up at the surrender and smug-
gled home. Confederate flags
were taken by the Union sol-
diers as souvenirs after the
War Between the States.
Flags were preserved only to
find that many of the restora-
tion techniques were damag-
ing the flags.
The International Institute
for the Conservation of
Historic and Artistic Work, an
organization in London,
England, in 1950 developed
standards for practice to


restore and preserve these
flags. From this came a proto-
col for treatment of historic
objects like flags. The guide-
lines are: Analysis and
Documentation, Cleaning and
Stabilization, Paintings on
Flags, Encapsulation and
Mounting and Framing. In
conclusion, the cost of conser-
vation of a flag depended on
its condition and materials
and could cost from $3,000 to
$25,000. After the flag has
been conserved, it requires
care and monitoring. There is
a special part of our Southern
History in the preservation of
these flags.
There were two certificates
presented to Peggy Sloan for
her Confederate ancestors
who served in the War
Between the States, Pvt.
Jethro Brown and Pvt.
William Brown, sons of


Lorem P Brown.
The Granville Beville
Chapter No. 2234 Bushnell,
District IV will be holding a
Confederate Memorial Day
Service and Dedication on

placing markers on the graves
of eight Confederate soldiers.
The soldiers are Stephen S.
Carlton, Hezekiah B. Drawdy,
James Lee, Jesse Lee,

Tomlinson. This will take
place at the Empire
Cemetery, Groveland, Lake
County, Fla. located on
Empire Church Road, on the
outskirts of Groveland.
Refreshments will follow.

RSVP by April 1, 2008 to
