Gambling in Sumter's future?


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Is parimutuel .wagering in
Sumter County's future?
It could be, if all goes according
to one company's plans to build a
quarter horse racing facility in Ox-
ford.
County commissioners are ex-
pected to vote on an application
for a special use permit for the
proposed facility to conduct
parimutuel wagering. The Iowa-


based developer is Sumter Real
Estate Holdings, LLC, which is
under contract to buy the 310-acre
property from current owner
Larry Brown. Of the 310 acres, the
developer is re-i-si tingto-use-117-
acres for the facility.
A message left by the Times for
Allison Jones, spokeswoman for
the project, was not immediately
returned.
The application, filed by Sumter
Real Estate Holdings agent
Michael Goldstein on April 21,
shows plans for a card room,


restaurant, track and arena.
According to state law, the issue
also has to be approved by voters.
At a regular meeting April 22, the
Board of County Commissioners
adopted resolution setting a spe-
cial election for June 17.
Voters will be asked to answer
"yes" or "no" to the following ques-
tion: Do you favor the existence of
a quarter horse racing and wager-
ing facility in Sumter County?
The developer is paying for'the
special election and has made a
deposit, of $150,000, the total esti-


mated cost of the election.
The issue might sound familiar
to longtime Sumter County resi-
dents. Parimutuel wagering
sparked controversy in Sumter
County when a quarter horse rac-
ing facility was proposed in 1986.
Back then, commissioners de-
nied a request to set an election to
decide the issue.
The current application comes
at the same time as pending state
legislation to harden quarter
horse gambling regulations, a bill
that has already passed in the


Florida Senate.
The bill contains a grandfather
clause that would exempt six ap-
plicants around the state who filed
applications since February, in-
cluding Sumter Real Estate Hold-
ings, from the tightened
restrictions.
Currently, quarter horse racing
permit holders are allowed to
have card games while holding
only one race per year.

bation, according to sher-
iff's office records. He was
held at the Sumter County
Detention Center without
bond.
Webster was booked at
the jail the day after the
sheriff's office distributed
a flyer with Webster's.de-
scription and photograph,
indicating he was wanted
for violation of probation.
According to information
on the flyer, Webster was
believed to be armed and
dangerous.
Last Tuesday, April 22,59-
year-old Peter Berli of In-
verness was found dead
with multiple gunshot
wounds in the driver's seat
of his Kia Sedona van.
The van was parked in a
lot used as a junkyard on
County Road 238 in Wild-
wood. Inside, police found
crack cocaine and a pipe in
the driver's side door.
There were also gro-
ceries including a gallon of
milk, which was still cold
when police arrived. Berli's
wallet and cellular tele-
phone were missing and
police said the motive was
likely drug-related robbery.
Police did not say how
many times Berli was shot


or what kind of gun was
used.
Berli's body was discov-
ered at about 4:30 p.m. by
Levon Mason, the owner of
the lot, who went there to
get some tools, sheriff's Lt.
Bobby Caruthers said.
Berli was wearing a cap,
blue polo shirt, gold watch,
grey shorts, and black san-
dals.
Police said last week
Berli withdrew cash from
his bank in Inverness at
1:15 p.m. the day he was
killed. He then bought gro-
ceries at a convenience
store at County Road 470
and State Road 44 in Lake
Panasoffkee.
"We can assume from
that that he had some cash
on him. His car keys were
also missing," Caruthers
said last week.
"The Sumter County
Sheriff's Office feels this
case can be solved with the
help of the community. If
anyone has any informa-
tion, please contact us or
CrimeLine."
Anyone with information
should call Det. Thomas
Williams at the sheriff's of-
fice at 793-0222 or the Cen-
tral Florida CrimeLine
(800) 423-TIPS (8477).
CrimeLine callers can re-
main anonymous and may

ward.

according to Assistant

"They couldn't say no and
be in compliance with
Florida Statutes," she said.
"It was discussed in the
meeting that the devel-
oper's goal was to have the
special election before July
1 because there's pending

The alleged victims
picked Dragneff from a
photo lineup, according to
sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers.
The victims, a 16-year-old
boy and his friend, told po-
lice two men pulled up in
front of him in a late 1990s
black Ford F-150 pickup
truck Saturday, April 5, at
about 10 p.m., according to a
sheriff's office report.
The teen, waiting for his
girlfriend to get clothes from
her house, was stopped at a
stop sign with a friend.


The event included,
prizes, food, fun and activi-
ties, with a number of ven-
dors on site.
The high gloss gave off its
sheen in the parking lot, as
bobtails and combos were
on exhibit for the public.


According to the report,
the teen "stopped at a stop
sign (he was unable to ad-
vise what street he was on)
and the truck pulled in front
of his vehicle. (The teen)
stated a white male got out
of the driver's side and ap-
proached his vehicle. (The
teen) stated the driver was
holding a black handgun
and a wallet with a badge,"
according to the report.
The driver of the Ford
truck told the teen and his
friend to get out of the vehi-
cle with their hands up. The
driver of the truck then pat-
ted them both down and
took their wallets from their
pockets.
The suspect then looked
at their driver's licenses and

Suspect accused of raping teen


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

A 21-year-old Wildwood
man is accused of threaten-
ing a Bushnell teen with a
knife and raping her April
27.
The suspect, Brian Pen-
nington, was arrested April
27 and was being held at the
Sumter County Detention
Center on charges of sexual
battery on a victim over 12,
false imprisonment, and ag-
gravated assault with a
deadly weapon without in-
tent to kill. Bond was set at
$60,000.
The 17-year-old victim
told police she was raped
early in the morning April
27 after she attended a party
in Wildwood, according to
sheriff's Lt. Bobby

Bruce Merritt and Rosalee
Tomberlin are shown getting
ready to plate-up and deliver
fresh barbecued pork sand-
wiches for the 'Noles
fundraiser, held last week.
The local Florida State Uni-
versity Seminoles group
provides a number of schol-
arships, and the pork lunch
and dinner is just one of
their efforts. The barbecue
earned the fund another
$500-plus. Merritt and his
wife Betty lead the local club
and coordinated the cooking
event. Merritt slow-cooked
the pork in front of the
Sumter County Sheriff's Ad-
ministration office on Main
Street in Bushnell. The
meals were pre-sold
during the week.


Caruthers.
The girl was with a group
of people at a party at about
2:40 a.m., which she report-
edly left with Pennington in
an SUV to go to a gas station,
Caruthers said.
Afterward, Pennington al-
legedly drove the SUV to a
residential area and parked
behind a house.
"He exited the driver's
seat and walked.around to
her door, told her to get out,"
Caruthers said.
Pennington then allegedly
sat down in the passenger
side and told her to sit on his
lap.
"They argued for about 10
minutes because she would-
n't sit on his lap," he said.
"She told him to let her go
and he refused to do so. He
made threats to her, which
involved a knife."


Caruthers said Penning-
ton is accused of taking a 6-
inch knife from the front
seat and threatening "to use
it on her if she didn't listen
to him.
"At this time, he did sexu-
ally assault her. From there,
he took her home."
The victim called police
from Bushnell and was "ex-
tremely upset," he said.
She said she didn't know
her, attacker's name and es-
timated he was about 21
years old. She described his
vehicle and told police she
was not familiar with Wild-
wood but described the area
where he took her, leading
police to Kilgore Street. Po-
lice got Pennington's name
by interviewing witnesses
from the party. The victim
picked him out of a photo
lineup, Caruthers said.

By law, voters of a for J

It's not the first time that

confronted with the issue.
Way back in 1986, plans rum-

The proposal rocked the
county as supporters and op-
ponents took sides on the con-
troversial issue.
Supporters said it would

The American Lung Asso-
ciation has selected Nick
Jones as their National
Volunteer of the Week for the
second week of April 2008. He
was also recognized as Ameri-
can Lung Association of
Florida-Central Area Volun-
teer of The Month for his
achievements and contribu-
tions to the Sumter County
area. The national honor
means that Nick is one of 52 fi-
nalists for the American Lung
Association's Annual Volun-
teer Excellence Awards.
Born in the state of Maine,
Nick refers to himself as a ma-
niac - and when you get to
know him and his passion for
what he believes in, you just
might agree! As he puts it:
"Born in Maine in a feather
tick bed," he grew up to be
short (underfed). When the
oxygen flows up the hose in his
nose, he turns into a virtual
airhead! In 1996, Nick was di-
agnosed with COPD, along
with emphysema, chronic
bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis
and asthma. He has had two
heart attacks, four mini
strokes, and five stents in his
right coronary artery and has
had a section cut out of his left
lung. However, none of this
slows Nick down.
Nick runs two support group
meetings for an average of 40
people at each meeting. Nick
has been married to his wife
Janet for 37 years, and to-
gether they teach breathing
and exercise classes and living
well with COPD at Life Long
Learning College in the Vil-
lages. His group, "The Air-
heads", has been named the
Better Breathers Club of the
year in Central Florida each of
the last two years.
Nick is on oxygen 24 hours a
day, but despite all of this has
dedicated countless hours of

LU


able influences into the
county.
The issue, however, never
did go to the voters back then.
That County Commission re-
fused to schedule the referen-
dum vote.
It will be interesting to see
the difference two decades
might make.
The developer will
also need the county
hction to approve its appli-
duled cation for a special
S1-7 use permit to allow a
pari-mutuel wagering
horseracing track
The following meetings have
been set for the county to re-
view the developer's applica-
tion, which was filed April 21:
*May 12 at 2 p.m. - The De-
velopment Review Committee
is set to review the application
in Bushnell.
*May 19 at 6:30 p.m. - The
Zoning and Adjustment Board
will hear the case at Lake
Miona Recreation Center.
*May 27 at 5:30 p.m. - County
Commissioners are expected
to vote on the application at

Center in The Villages.


planning, implementing and
executing The American Lung
Association's inaugural Air-
heads Joyride, helping raise
$14, 660. It took place at The
Villages, one of the world's
largest retirement communi-
ties with more than 75,000 res-
idents. Nick single-handedly
recruited more than 40 indi-
vidual groups to participate in
the Joyride making it a parade
consisting of more than 500
participants including a
marching band, an equestrian
unit, clowns and belly dancers.
There were more than 250
carts in the inaugural event.
Nick also dedicates his time
to the Airheads Better
Breathers Club in the Villages.
He is the vice president and
"spark plug" for the group. The
Airheads started originally as
a COPD support group, but
soon became a Better
Breathers Club of the Ameri-
can Lung Association. The
idea for the Airheads Joyride
came about back in March
2007 through the efforts of the
Sumter County Advisory
Board for the American Lung
Association of the Southeast -
Central Area. Nick has served
as the Chairman of the Board
since its inception and contin-
ues to devote many hours to-
wards its success in being able
to implement American Lung
Association programs in
Sumter County schools.
Nick truly loves people and
is dedicated to helping those
with COPD. He can't wait to get
started planning for next
year's Airheads Joyride and
looks forward to the many suc-
cesses it will bring.
The staff at the American
Lung Association is very
thankful for his continuing ef-
forts and contributions toward
changing lives, one breath at a
time.

Letters to the editor


Giving thanks
for support
We wish to give thanks for your
kind support in our efforts to
maintain our peaceful rural
neighborhood. We would like to
thank Sumter County Times for
sharing our stories concerning
the changes that we will face due
to heavy industrial mining. In
spite of what most stated was use-
less in our efforts, we felt the
strong urge to see this process
through to the end, for sometimes
you don't choose a battle, but the
battle chooses you. This experi-
ence in opposition by no means
was stating we feel the mining in-
dustry does not have good, kind-
hearted people that do good
things for the community, for this
was a point made clear in the last
BOCC meeting; this simply was an
effort for our rural neighborhood
to keep our way of life and our fu-
ture dreams, as well as seeking
deserving recognition for our Vet-
erans Memorial Road that is long
overdue.
We will continue efforts to have
Veteran Memorial Highway Road
recognized in every way, no mat-
ter where this road may lead, for
it deserves to be front and center;
and CR 673 the Mine Road,
known as secondary.
We deeply appreciate the many
riches we are blessed with from
those represented by this road of
remembrance and to the Ameri-


can soldiers of today for sadly, too
many continue to join this road's
most powerful tribute with the
cost of their precious lives.
This past week, a funeral pro-
cession turned west off 301 onto
our Veterans Memorial Road
heading to the National Cemetery
and while awaiting its passing, it
would have been befitting had
there been a large prominent sign
with an American flag flying and a
few plantings below to let every-
one know without question this
was the road of remembrance,
their pathway leading to the final
resting place at the beautiful Na-
tional Cemetery. A highly visible
tribute should be placed at all
four entrance ways and the road
upgraded when possible. This
road, along with the National
Cemetery, should be two promi-
nent features of Sumter County;
after all, if there has been anyone
that has given the most for our
community and for our entire na-
tion it has been the American sol-
dier. Their devotions protect and
embrace our Roads of Peace, so
we may never see those Roads of
War that continue to brutally take
the lives of our heroes today and
that we must never forget.
May the eagles soar in tribute
and support of all veterans
"everyday."
The Lester family and
families of our Rural
Neighborhood Bushnell


SSHS Project
Graduation 2008
Project Graduation would like
to thank the community for its
continued support this year. We
have continued to raise money to
fund a great after graduation
party, providing a safe all- night
activity for our graduates. If we
save one life or avoid one serious
accident, the countless hours of
fund raising by our volunteers
will be worth it We cannot thank
our community supporters
enough.
We are a volunteer group doing
the best we can to provide this
valuable and expensive event Be-
cause of this, we do require rais-
ing a large sum of money.
Unfortunately, an internal audit
has revealed errors in accounting.
We found the errors and re-
sponded accordingly If any vol-
unteer has intentionally handled
funds inappropriately, the proper
authorities have and will be con-
tacted and an investigation re-
quested. We support prosecution
of any wrongdoing to the fullest
extent of the laws.
This organization is only in ex-
istence to help our graduates by
providing a safe party after grad-
uation. We will not allow poor
judgment from anyone to distract
us from this goal. Again, thank you
for the support to our graduating
seniors- SSHS Class of 2008 par-

Adolescents and weight-loss diets


A according to Family
Album Radio's Stephanie
Fulger, most of us have
known many people who have
dieted to lose weight. But were
any of these dieters teens or pre-
teens? According to a nation-
wide study, 50 to 60 percent of
girls ages 12 to 17 have tried a
weight-loss diet (Brown, 2005).
Although child obesity is on
the rise and has become a con-
cern to many, teens and their
parents should know that weight
gain is normal, especially during
adolescence. Boys tend to gain
weight before a growth spurt,
and girls often gain weight be-
fore the onset of menstruation.
In fact, puberty is a process that
requires a certain amount of
body fat (NIDDK, 2004).
Most active young people be-

Maddox

Office


tween the ages of 11 and 18 need
to consume at least 2,200 calories
per day (Brown, 2005). Weight-
loss diets that restrict calorie in-
take to 1,200 calories per day or
less can create large energy
deficits in adolescents (NAASO,
2001). This lack of adequate calo-
ries and nutrients may inhibit
growth and cause delayed pu-
berty. In addition, dieting can be
the precursor to more severe
eating behaviors, or even eating
disorders such as anorexia and


bulimia (Dowshen, 2005).
If a child's weight is of con-
cern, the family as a whole can
engage in healthier eating habits
and more physical activity. This
is a positive approach that does
not single out the child, which
could lower his or her self-es-
teem (NIDDK, 2004). In extreme
cases, it may be appropriate to
place a child on a weight-loss
diet. However, this approach
should be discussed with a
physician and a dietitian famil-
iar with youth development and
nutrient needs (HHS, 2005).

They are no-fear Muckateers Parson Brown descendants
..- ..AL .l -m . ..A& . M I - . . W - .-..&. --


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

The 4-H Muckateers have
no fear when it comes to
muck
Really.
As a matter of fact, they
went after a grant to put
them right in the middle of
muck in the Withlacoochee
State Forest. They were
awarded a $165 Community
Pride Grant to trim, clean
and maintain horse trails
through the forest, in the
Hog Island area.
The money is contributed
by Chevron Texaco Corpora-
tion and distributed through
the Florida 4-H Foundation.
"Riding trails are an asset
to promoting tourism," said
Muckateers leader Rose
Marie Martin.
"Bringing horse people
into our community also
promotes the economy They
buy gas, food, horse feed and
supplies and they stay at
motels, bed and breakfasts
or campgrounds. Also, vol-
unteer workers help county
agencies save tax dollars,"
she said.
Martin cites the benefits
for the 4-H members as
learning more about their
community and the impact it
has on their lives.
The grant money was re-
quested so they could pur-
chase two long-handled
trimmers, two hand clip-
pers, two small, folding saws
and one-inch glow dots to
serve as markers on trees.
Before stepping into the
project, the group checked
with local businesses and
the 4-H office, surveyed ran-
dom residents, contacted
the necessary agencies and


Youngsters participate in an outing to Hog Island.


took a good look at what
needed to be done.
Through the project, the
kids learn how to work ef-
fectively in community ac-
tivities, programs and
organizations and develop
skills and knowledge in
community leadership, ac-
cording to Martin.
4-H was founded in 1902
and works with more than
223,000 rural, suburban and
urban youths between the
ages of five and 18 years old
in Florida.
For information about
joining 4-H, contact Sarah
Hensley at 352-793-2728.

noehcnulr ofr eht a


Back in the 1800s, a circuit
riding Methodist minister
named Nathan Lofton Brown
discovered a wild orange on
his travels.
It was tasty and Brown de-
cided to work to make it even
tastier, planting seeds from the
orange and grafting it into an-
other type of citrus to create
the "Parson Brown Orange."
Last week, several of his
great-great granddaughters
got together for lunch.
Six months ago, Jeannine
Browning and Sharon Drag-
neff were working to get their
great-great grandfather into
the Citrus Hall of Fame.
He was one of the main
sparks that got the citrus in-
dustry moving in Florida,
Browning said.
As they began to contact
Brown's other descendants in
their efforts, they began hear-
ing from folks all over the
place, she said.
"Wouldn't it be fun to get all
the girl cousins together?"
they queried.
And they did just that.
By the time the event took
place, the cousins were com-
ing in from as far away as
Texas and South Carolina.
The ladies gathered at
Browning's Webster home,
where they looked over scrap-
books, shared stories, recalled
their youth and even shared
new books they've written.
For example, Browning's
book "Sand In My Shoes" is a
book with their family history
and a whole bunch of treas-
ured recipes.
Her cousin Jane Warnock
McElyea has had more than a
dozen books published, in-
cluding "Southern Sensibili-
ties," "Christmas Confetti" and
"That's What Grandmothers
Are For" - from legends and
recipes to little snippets of
wisdom.
The family moved to Florida
- first to Palatka, then Crow's
Bluff- staying long enough to
grow a crop in each spot, be-
fore moving on.
While Webster came later,
the Browns moved their fam-
ily to the area and made that
their permanent home.


Descendants of Parson Brown gathered in Webster at the
home of Jeannine Browning. Mrs.Browning is the great-great
granddaughter of Nathan Lofton Brown. Descendants who
attended are shown here (back row, left to right) Pam Barnard

Free trees, music commemorate Arbor Day


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

The city of Wildwood cel-
ebrated Arbor Day Friday,
April 25, with a plentiful of-
fering of free trees, music,
and a ceremony in front of
City Hall.
The morning gathering
included city officials,
Progress Energy volun-
teers, and the Wildwood
Middle School jazz band.
In all, about 100 people
turned out for the event
"This is an important
day," said Wildwood City
Manager Jim Stevens. He
said the day serves to rec-
ognize the importance of
trees to human life and to
the planet
This is the 18th year Wild-
wood has been designated
a Tree City USA, according
to Mayor Ed Wolf. "We're
very proud of that," he said.
The tree giveaway was
part of Progress Energy's
"Know Where You Grow"
program, an effort to en-
courage residents to plant
"power line-friendly" trees.
On Friday, residents chose
from a selection of five
types of native, low growing
trees.
"We have 500 trees to give
away," said Jean Lamb, pro-
gram coordinator for


Progress Energy. Represen-
tatives of the company also
gave away fluorescent light
bulbs.
"It's all part of trying to
be energy efficient," she
said.
This is the first year
Progress Energy has been
part of Wildwood's Arbor
Day program. "We're really
excited to be partnering
with Wildwood," Lamb
said.
Friday's audience in-
cluded Wildwood city com-
missioners Pamela Bivins
and Ron Allen, and Sumter
Sheriff Bill Farmer.
In addition to songs per-
formed by the jazz band,
the event also included po-
etry readings by other Wild-
wood Middle School
students.
The Wildwood Tree
Board and Wildwood Im-
provement Committee gave
away 200 daylilies. In sup-
port of the
celebration, Sumter Gar-
dens Tree Nursery also do-
nated about $2,000 worth of
trees and plants to the city
of Wildwood to plant
around the city.
In the U.S., many states
observe Arbor Day on dif-
ferent dates according to
the best times to plant
trees. Florida's Arbor Day
is in January, but National
Arbor Day is observed on
the last Friday in April.


Get ready for


Summerscape


The Sumter County Board
of County Commissioners,
along with financial support
from the Winn-Dixie Founda-
tion is proud to present "Sum-
merscape 2008" for teenagers.
The program will be at two
Sumter Count parks: Lake
Panasoffkee Recreation Park
from June 9 through June 27,
and at Royal Park from July 7
through July 25.
The program is designed
with ages 13 to 17 in mind.
The activities and events
planned for Summerscape
will provide teens with a fun
and exciting alternative to sit-
ting around the house trying to
find something to do, or wast-
ing precious summer days
away when they could be ca-
noeing, deep sea fishing or de-
signing, writing and
performing a play with other


teenagers.
Ever want to go on a scav-
enger hunt or geo-caching?
What about spending a day at
a paintball field?
Are you competitive? Amaz-
ing Race-style games and
gauntlet-type courses will take
place for team- based compe-
tition. How about learning self
defense or even an introduc-
tion to martial arts?
The cost per week is $55.
Partnering with the board to
make the most of Summer-
scape will be the Sumter
County Health Department,
Sumter County Fire Services,
and Leslie Neese, of Sumter
School of Shotokan. Contact
Sumter County Parks and
Recreation at 793-3624 for reg-
istration and more informa-
tion.

Ben Moffitt hopes to make a
dream come true within the
next few months.
Moffitt recently
signed as a free agent
with the Dallas Texans.
The former South
Sumter High standout
played at the Univer-
sity of South Florida.
He was expected to Mo
be drafted in the Na-
tional Football League
Draft over the weekend but
signed as a free agent instead.
Moffitt heard from several
teams before signing with the
Texans.
He stands 6-foot-2 and


weighs 245 pounds.
"He thinks it is an excellent
opportunity," said South
Sumter High head football
coach Inman Sherman. "He
seemed pretty happy
about it."
He was a starting
middle linebacker for
the University of South
Florida.
At one time, the Bulls
were ranked second in
:ffit the nation in major
polls.
Moffitt is hoping to
join San Diego Chargers safety
Clinton Hart as a player in the
National Football League.
Hart was recently named
Chargers Man of the Year for
his charitable efforts.

Jake's Day Out drew about 200 children out for the fun.The event was hosted by the the Sumter County Longbeards/National Wildlife Turkey Federation.The Florida Wildlife Commission
and the Florida Department of Forestry provided classes through biologist Nancy Dwyer, officer Ken Hensley, hunter Ed Crew and retired officer Jamie Adams. Along with a variety of
events, the crowd got to line the banks of a hatchery pond and cast a line for big bass.


Longbeards reel in kids'


day


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Richloam Fish Hatchery was
the site for fun last weekend, if
you love to fish and wanted to
know a little about the envi-
ronment, hunting and nature.
The fun was all part of
"Jake's Day Out," hosted by the
Sumter County Longbeards.
The Longbeards are part of the
National Turkey Wildlife Fed-
eration and "Jake" is for the
young members.


The hatchery was open for
youth fishing, while exhibitors
taught kids everything from
hunter education and archery,
to turkey calling and cleaning
fish.
The fun was from 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. on the 26th and kids even
got to visit with Smokey the
Bear.
There were bounce houses, a
helicopter and K-9, and tours
of the hatchery to see where
bass are raised and studied.
"We felt like we should do
something to give back to the

community," Adams said of
planning the event.
"We didn't realize that many
people were going to show up,"
he said, noting that they were


really pleased with the
turnout.
They were hoping for 75 and
got more than 200.
"So many kids nowadays
don't get the chance to get out-
side," he said, explaining that
their outdoor experiences are
through what they see on tele-
vision.
They wanted to give kids the
chance to experience it for
real.
He said for many of the kids,
it was their first time fishing.
And already the talk is about


next year, as kids share with
other kids about their experi-
ence. Adams said he's on the
ballfield every night and the
talk's there.
Other coordinators of the
event were the Florida
Wildlife Commission and the
Florida Department of
Forestry with biologist Nancy
Dwyer, officer Ken Hensley,
hunter education teachers
Jimmy and JoAnne Peagler
and - retired officer Jamie
Adams.


Trent and Cody Melton, 10, show off their handiwork. The
two caught plenty to keep the family fed.

Colby Causey got some help from dad Bobby in the archery lesson. But even with help from dad, it was pretty obvious that
concentration was a key.


There's more to life than fishing - there's minnow catch-
ing. Blake Peavey was busy with his net, catching minnows
along the pond bank.

where she could get lots of
love and attention. She also
gets along well with other
small dogs and cats. Randi

Sumter DART (Disaster
Animal Rescue Team) is plan-
ning a meeting at the Hu-
mane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County's office in
Lake Panasoffkee. Anyone in-
terested in learning more
about DART, or becoming a
team member, is welcome to
attend. The meeting is sched-
uled for Thursday, May 1, at
6:30 p.m. The address is 994
C.R. 529A, Lake Panasoffkee,
33538.
This is an important meet-
ing that will cover new state
mandates and upcoming re-
quired DART certified train-
ing information. Recent


meetings with Emergency
Management will have
Sumter DART volunteers
more actively involved in
local incidents and disasters.
As hurricane season ap-
proaches, DART volunteers
must keep abreast of updates
and changes in the law, and
how they affect our team.
Sumter is unique in that it
has two individual DART
teams. Sumter DART (Disas-
ter Animal RESCUE team)
volunteers work under the di-
rection of the Humane Soci-
ety/SPCA of Sumter County.
The volunteers consist
mainly of people who are an-
imal handlers and clerical
workers. They are dedicated
volunteers who continuously
attend training sessions to
keep their skills sharp and


stay current on changing poli-
cies. The Sumter DART vol-
unteers not only respond
locally, but anywhere in the
southeastern states. They de-
ploy to hoarding cases, ani-
mal cruelty cases, and
disasters.
Sumter DART (Disaster
Animal RESPONSE Team)
Logistics, Inc. consists of
large specialized equipment
that must be constantly main-
tained. These are trained vol-
unteers who are experienced
big rig drivers, truck drivers,
and heavy equipment opera-
tors. They drive the trucks
and transport trailer that can
transport large numbers of
animals to safety. They have
specialized equipment to cre-
ate a self contained com-
pound that supplies rescuers


and recovered animals with
electricity, water, and basic
necessities. Emergency and
life-saving procedures for an-
imals can be performed on
the mounted operating ta-
bles. Sumter DART Logistics
responds not only locally, but
to requests by any humane
organizations, and animal
control agencies anywhere in
the country They respond to
hoarding cases, large animal
cruelty cases, and disasters.
Recent deployments have
been in Sumter County, Geor-
gia, Ohio, California, and
New Orleans.
Both Sumter DART and
Sumter DART Logistics, Inc.

tifications. The dedication of

The NWTF chapter hosts successful event for people with disabilities


The Sumter County Long-
beards chapter of the Na-
tional Wild Turkey
Federation (NWTF) hosted
a Wheelin' Sportsmen event
on April 19 and 20.
The Wheelin' Sportsmen
program is one of the
NWTF's outreach programs.
This program is designed to
provide people of all ages,
with disabilities, opportuni-
ties to get out and enjoy out-
door activities such as
hunting, fishing, bird watch-
ing, and much more.
This particular event gave
six people and their guests
the opportunity to hunt the
elusive Osceola Turkey, wild
hogs, and to fish in a local
pond. Able-bodied individu-
als were partnered up with
those in need of assistance
to aide in these outdoor ac-
tivities.
At least 1 in 5 Americans
has some kind of disability,
although many aren't obvi-
ous, and 1 in 10 is severely
disabled. Unfortunately,


their opportunities to take
part in outdoor activities are
often limited and sometimes
nonexistent The goal of the
Wheelin' Sportsmen pro-
gram is to get people in-
volved in exciting and
rewarding outdoor activi-
ties.
With the same commit-
ment the NWTF has made
in restoring wild turkeys to
their historic numbers, and
improving wildlife habitat
the NWTF's Wheelin'
Sportsmen outreach pro-
gram is also bringing the
beauty and wonder of the
outdoors to people with dis-
abilities.
Wheelin' Sportsmen
events are designed to over-
come barriers that prevent
or limit those with disabili-
ties from enjoying outdoor
activities. Each event pro-
motes education, healthy
living, sportsmanship, self
esteem, recreation and
awareness. Due to the
uniqueness and. design of


the program, we are able to
provide participants with a
variety of outdoor adven-
tures.
The National Wild Turkey
Federation also offers out-
reach programs to include
and educate women,
through the Women in the
Outdoors program, and chil-
dren, up to age 17, through
the Jakes program.
The Sumter County Long-
beard Chapter would like to
extent a note of gratitude to
all who made this event a
success.

formation on the Sumter
County Longbeard Chapter

get families to work together to
build the reading strengths of
their children and included a
workshop aspect.
The workshop included
teaching parents how to set
their children up for success-
ful reading practice at home;
"clue" parents and students
into a set of key reading strate-
gies that strategic readers em-
ploy; provide a learning
experience that middle school

as a worthwhile effort and to
promote positive partnerships
