Voting for gambling issue under way


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Early voting has begun for
a special election in which
Sumter County voters are
being asked if they want to
allow a horseracing and
gambling facility.
The election is June 17.
Early voting started Monday
and will continue through
Saturday, June 14.
Voters are asked to an-


swer "yes" or "no" to the fol-
lowing question: Do you
favor the existence of a
quarter horse racing and
wagering facility in Sumter
County?
After the election, the
county Zoning and Adjust-
ment Board and Board of
County Commissioners is
scheduled to hear the de-
veloper's request for a spe-
cial use permit to allow a
quarter horse racing track
in Oxford.


The public hearing before
the Zoning and Adjustment
Board is set for June 19 at
6:30 p.m. at Colony Cottage
Regional Recreation Center
in The Villages and for the
Board of County Commis-
sioners June 24 at 5:30 p.m.
also at Colony Cottage Re-
gional Recreation Center.
The Iowa-based devel-
oper is Sumter Real Estate
Holdings, LLC, which is
under contract to buy the


310-acre property from cur-
rent owner Larry Brown. Of
the 310 acres, the developer
is requesting to use 117
acres for the facility.
The application, filed by
Sumter Real Estate Hold-
ings agent Michael Gold-
stein April 21, shows plans
for a card room, restaurant,
track and arena.
Some county residents
have objected to the devel-
oper's proposal because of
the gambling element, while


others, horse enthusiasts,
are supporting the idea.
Early voting locations are
in Bushnell, at the Supervi-
sor of Elections office, 900
N. Main St., at the Wildwood
office, 372 Shopping Center
Dr., in The Villages Annex at
8033 E. County Road 466 No.
401, and at the Villages Li-
brary, 325 Belvedere Blvd.

Emergency Management preparing for hurricane season

Deborah Smith picks up the phone at the citizen's concern desk inside the Sumter
County Emergency Operations Center in Bushnell. Smith, who works at the Veter-
ans Service Office in The Villages, was one of more than 40 workers from various
organizations around the county to participate in a hurricane preparedness exer-
cise there June 4.


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

With the official start of the
hurricane season behind
- them, Sumter County Emer-
gency Management officials
conducted the department's
annual hurricane training ex-
ercise last week.
About 40 workers from var-
ious county departments and
organizations gathered at the
Sumter County Emergency
Operations Center June 4,
three days after the official
start of the 2008 hurricane
season to practice what
they'll be doing during an ac-
tual hurricane. Divided into
emergency support functions,
participants including em-
ployees from public works,
animal control, emergency
medical services, the local
health department, and relief
organizations had about an
hour to work through scenar-
ios ranging from a downed
tree blocking U.S. Highway
301 to a tornado in Center
Hill.
The training was part of a
statewide exercise using
"Hurricane Herb," a simu-
lated storm that swept across
Florida last week.
"Our purpose today was to
identify what needs work and
adjustment," said Sumter
County Emergency Manage-
ment Director Judd Wright
"That's what we did."
During last week's exer-
cise, Wright said they had a
problem transferring the

Also, there was a slight In-

being fixed right away, he
said.
. Wright said this is the first
silch exercise conducted in-
side the new Emergency Op-
erations Center.
"It's never been utilized to
this capacity before," he said.
"Today was an experimental
day."

Three arrested
in drug bust
AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Three suspects were
arrested on drug charges
when the Sumter County
Sheriff's Office SWAT
team raided a home at
404 Peters Street in Wild-
wood Thursday, June 5.
Ellis Latimer, 29, Eu-
gene Dixon, 36, and
Shacara Corbin, 21, were
arrested and held at the
Sumter County Detention
Center.
The raid was a result of
a two-month investiga-
tion during which con-
trolled drug buys were
made, according to sher-
iff's LL Steve Binegar.
Police found one ounce
of powder and crack co-
caine in the home, but the
setup was considered a
"mid-level" drug opera-

WILL BE YOUR ONLY CHANCE


TO VOTE








HORSE PARK -GAMBLING IN SUMTER COUNTY

THE COUNTY ZONING BOARD PROBABLY CAN'T STOP IT

THE COUNTY COMMISSIONERS CAN'T STOP IT


IT'S UP TO YOU


HERE ARE A FEW OF THE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD

VOTE NO TO "HORSE PARK":


IT WILL INCREASE,
NOT DECREASE, OUR TAXES
The race track people say it will bring $400,000 in new tax revenue to Sumter
County. However, assuming that this figure is accurate, which we doubt, the
increased costs to the county will likely offset any new income and will result
in increased taxes.
Increases in crime and social problems directly linked with this new gambling
venture will require additional law enforcement officers and social services to
deal with criminal behavior, gambling addictions, family abuse, and
bankruptcies.
"For every dollar of revenue genriaeted by gambling, taxpayers must dish out
at least three dollars in increased criminal justice costs, social-welfare
expenses, high regulatory costs, and increased infrastructure expenditures."
-John Kindt, Ph.D., Professor of Commerce and Legal Policy at the
University of Illinois
"There are two simple questions: Where does the money come from, and
where does the money go?... 'If the customers live in a local area, there's no
way you can have economic development."
-William Thomson, Prof. of Public Administration at the
University of Nevada in Las Vegas
GAMBLING CAUSES
INCREASED CRIME
Despite spending $59 million yearly to monitor gambling businesses during
their first three years in operation, Atlantic City jumped from fiftieth to first on'
the nation's per capital crime chart.
-Goodman, The Luck Business, 57-58.
Crime statistics in Nevada reveal that 50.6% of problem gamblers stole
money or materials to gamble or to pay gambling-related debts; 30.1% stole
money from the workplace; 63.3% passed bad checks.
-R. Keith Schwer, Social Costs of Gambling in Southern Nevada
Another Crime Issue Associated with Gambling is Street Crime. US News
and World Report did a comparison of crime rates in cities with gambling
versus those that do not. The crime rates were significantly higher in the
places that allowed gambling.
-Roger Dunstan, Gambling in California, California Research Bureau


GAMBLING LEADS
TO GAMBLING ADDICTION
One out of every 33 adults who gamble will become addicted. One out of
every 11 adolescents who gamble is likely to become a problem gambler.
Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery
According to experts, an estimated five to 10 million Americans are afflicted
with serious gambling addictions. (More recent estimates are now 15.4
million).
Earle Eldridge, "Nation's Steamy Love Affair with Gambling Still Growing"
Pathological gambling is one of the fastest-growing mental health problems
in the western world.
The New England Journal of Medicine, 10/5/2000
GAMBLING RESULTS
IN FAMILY PAIN & ABUSE
Increases in family and child abuse, divorce, and suicide are attributable to
gambling.
When gambling operations were legalized a 328% increase in domestic
violence incidences from 1992-1996 occurred in Biloxi, MS and calls to the
Gulf Coast Women's Center crisis line doubled in three years. The National
Gambling Impact Study Commission reported: "Children of compulsive
gamblers are often prone to suffer abuse, as well as neglect, as a result of
parental problem or pathological gambling." Gulf Coast chancery court Judge
William L. Stewart said gambling is now a factor in at least a third of the-
divorce cases he oversees.
Ronald A Reno, Gambling's Impact on Families
"One in five pathological gamblers attempts suicide, a rate higher than for
any other addictive disorder."
National Council on Problem Gambling
GAMBLING CAUSES
INCREASED BANKRUPTCIES
There is a higher rate of bankruptcies at locations surrounding gambling
facilities.
"According to a 1997 bankruptcy research report, gambling is "the single
fastest-growing driver of bankruptcy. ...Counties with gambling had a
bankruptcy filing rate 18% higher than those without. The rate for counties
with five or more gambling outlets was 35% higher than counties without
gambling."
SMR Research Corporation, "The Personal Bankruptcy Crisis, 1997
Almost half of problem gamblers were led to bankruptcy through gambling,
and the average debt of a problem gambler was $57,160
R. Keith Schwer, Social Costs of Gambling in Southern Nevada

"NO"


TO HORSE PARK

JUNE 17TH

"Florida is a family-friendly, wholesome, prosperous place.. .gambling doesn't have a part in that ... gambling is a
deterrence for true economic development ... the bottom line is that this is a money-making enterprise for a select few
that do really, really well at the expense of the communities where they exist."

NO'[HEALU IR ,-_ E o










Recently, the people of Sumter County have been called upon to decide, by
special election, whether a pari-mutuel horse park should be constructed in
Oxford. Talk of potentially rampant crime and the degenerative effects of
gambling is overshadowing the real issue and Is being used to fuel the
propaganda machine of those ignorant to the nature of the horse racing industry.
For more than one hundred years, the farmers and ranchers of Sumter County
0h' ..,rfl':e. a:ndia oked tirr-iesiV upon the soil soaked with their blood, sweat,
and tears. Agriculture being.such on integral part of ,Sumter's Industry since the
county was founded, one does not have to look far to find evidence of the
resilience of its citizens. Generations of family farms and ranches have sculpted
the landscape geographically, politically, and socio-economically. Regardless of
how we may be viewed by some, the people of Sumter County are not so gullible
as to be duped by blatantly misleading tactics being used to confuse a discussion
of Oxford's proposed horse park. Long before celebrities were preaching
environmental awareness from the steps of their private jets, the people of Sumter'
were composting, growing their own organic food supply, and doing their best to
preserve the land because their survival depended upon it not because it was
trendy or made a good bumper sticker,
Underestimating the intellectual sophistication of voters in Sumter County may not
be such useful strategy, Better than most would presume, the people of this
community are keenly aware of difference between fact and fiction. For example,
I find it absurd that opponents of this facility would go so far as to suggest that any
related gambling will corrupt the county's youth. Let me assure you that a serious
miscalculation has been made by the person who thinks that, by its mere
existence, a horse park has the ability to counter any example of a moral lifestyle
parents have chosen to show their children.
As I read the submissions to the Times' Opinion column in response to this issue, I
was saddened by the unawareness the contributors displayed to the opportunities
that might be realized from this development. Furthermore, I lamented the view of
horse racing presented by those writing in to the paper. Obviously, cable television
can be a dangerous substitution for exposure to reality since the opinions
depicted a scene more relative to an' episode of The Soprano's than what
actually occurs on the grounds of an equine ,:i:'it,'. Furthermore, this alleged
incessant noise and confusion is a comical thought. It may be necessary to take
moment and point out the difference between horse racing and NASCAR, While I
never thought someone from Sumter County would have to be told this, horses
really aren't that loud, And the crowds, while possibly energized, will not be
comparable to those at comparable sporting events., I am infinitely open to
discussion on this topic, however, opponents might better educate themselves as
to the very strict regulations and sizeable contributions to Sumter's tax base that
will well offset any additional infrastructure in the north end. While some may desire
a return to the horse and buggy days of Sumter's past, this is an unrealistic pursuit.
It is in the best interest of all tax-funded entities including schools, law enforcement
agencies, and public healthcare institutions, to develop a diversified tax base.
Much like my fellow residents, I grew up watching my father lace, up his work boots
and set out for work before the sun rose. Well after sunset, he would return home
and prepare to do it all over again the next day, Seven days a week my father
dedicated himself to the operation of his own harness horse stable in upstate New
York. I watched countless times as he braved ice and snow to nurse an Injured
animal by taking up watch on an overturned feed bucket In the sparse
accommodations of a stall in a night darkened barn. Injured, exhausted or ill he
never missed a day of work. Amazed and proud, I watched wins by horses others
told him would never make it to the races, never mind place. Going to the track
to watch a race was a reward and is a cherished memory from my childhood.
Growing up on a horse farm taught me the importance of hard work and instilled
an appreciation for the difficulties and challenges associated with agri-business.
Please read the proposed legislation carefully when you prepare to vote on this
matter on June 17th. Consider the facts separate from the nonsensical ramblings
and anonymous signage displayed around the county. Encourage opponents to
present a lucid argument as to why this facility should be rejected instead of using
scare tactics. If a convincing case can be made for blocking this track, It lies not in
an effort to legislate morality by denying honest horsemen and women the
opportunity to practice their trade.

Voters divided on


gambling issue


O n Tuesday, voters will
decide if they want a
horseracing and gam-
bling facility in Sumter
County.
But this isn't the first time a
developer has wanted to put a
quarter horse race track in the
county.
When the county was faced
with the idea for a horse rac-
ing facility in 1986, it didn't re-
ceive a warm welcome from
Sumter County residents and
the idea didn't get very far.
This time around, the idea
certainly has its opponents as
well as advocates.
Churches and residents who
oppose the racetrack fear po-
tential problems when gam-
bling is introduced into the
community.
Some horse enthusiasts, on
the other hand, want to see the
racing facility become a real-
ity, and look forward to other
horse competitions the facility
is expected to host.
Considering the history of


this issue with Sumter County
residents, it will be interesting
to see what happens at the
polls.
Even though Sumter County
has said 'no' to this type of ac-
tivity in the past, will it be dif-
ferent now that the county has
so many new residents and in-
fluences and a much larger
population?
The special election is set
for Tuesday, but voters can get
their votes in early.
Early voting started Monday
and continues through June
14.
Early voting locations are in
Bushnell, at the Supervisor of
Elections office, 900 N, Main
St., at the Wildwood office, 372
Shopping Center Dr., in The
Villages Annex at 8033 E.
County Road 466 #401, and at
the Villages Library, 325
Belvedere Blvd.
For more information about

Proposed gambling
in Sumter County
Well folks, it has now come
down to the wire. It is now "do or
die" for Sumter County.
The proposed gambling facility
will become a reality if we don't
act now.
The promoters of the horse race
track/gambling facility are saying
to you: Hey, what's the big deal.
It's just a few horse races.
And they are right Horse racing
is not the only thing that will be
going on out there. The gambling
rooms they are proposing are the
big money makers. Sure, they want
you to believe that it is a good
thing for all of us, even the chil-
dren. But how can a gambling fa-
cility be good for children? Is that
the environment in which you
want to raise your children or
grandchildren?
They say that it will boost the
economy with more tax money
But in reality, the tax money
paid in by them will not cover the
increased costs of social services
and law enforcement that will be
needed. Studies have shown the
"before and after" effects of such
facilities and have concluded that
for every dollar paid in taxes, it
takes more than three dollars to
pay for the increased cost of serv-
ices such as gambling addiction,
crime, etc.
They also say that it will create
about one hundred new jobs. Of
course, not the management jobs,
but the cleanup jobs. There are
more people working for Wal-Mart
on each shift than that. Big deal!
They also say it will be a big
boost to the agricultural industry
by bringing in horse farms rather
than new housing developments.
We can't go back in time now.
North Sumter County was an agri-
cultural county but isn't now, and
never will be again. Horse farms
will not locate to North Sumter
County now, there is too much con-
gestion.
If they are serious in what they
say, tell them to build the horse
park without gambling and see
what they say. It won't happen.
If we don't stop it at the polls, it
will become a reality. The Zoning
Board won't stop it. The County
Commissioners won't stop it. It
will happen if we don't stop it.
If you haven't already voted,
Vote "no" on gambling on June 17.
Sincerely yours,
Charles B. Lucas
Oxford

Support for
race track
I am writing to express my
support for the proposed horse
park in Sumter County. My hus-
band and I own property that


borders the proposed site for the
new facility and we think it will
bring a number of economic and
recreational benefits to Sumter
County.
An equestrian facility is long
overdue in Sumter County. As a
horse owner, breeder and barrel
racer, I am thrilled that there
might be a facility where I can
compete and attend a variety of
equestrian activities right here
in Sumter County. There are
very few nearby facilities and
arenas where individuals like
me can compete in the area.
It will bring new jobs and new
revenue at a time when the
economy and many individuals,
families and small business own-
ers are struggling to pay their
mortgage and fill their gas tanks.
It will have a very positive im-
pact on the local equine commu-
nity from owners, to
veterinarians to local feed and
tack shops.
I have spent decades training,
working and competing at events
at similar facilities throughout
the country. I know how well
they are run, the strict security
measures and regulatory
scrutiny all those who work and
participate in events at the facil-
ity are subject to as well as, the
benefits they bring to the com-
munities.
Additionally, as a neighbor of
the proposed facility I have
taken the time to get to know the
developer who is proposing the
horse track. He is extremely
knowledgable about industry
and has exhibited his intense
commitment to this project and
ensuring that it truly benefits
Sumter County as well as the
equestrian community in the
area.
I think the proposed Oxford
Horse Park is going to be a
tremendous asset to our commu-
nity and will have many positive
impacts on all Sumter County
residents. I hope all members of
our community embrace this
tremendous opportunity and
vote yes on June 17. I know I am
very much looking forward to
seeing this exciting new project
arrive in our backyard -- liter-
ally!
Connie Hearn

Thrilled with
horse park idea
I am one of the.closest neigh-
bors to the proposed site for the
Oxford Horse Park and I couldn't
be more thrilled with what is
being proposed. I fully support
the project and will be heading to
the polls to vote yes on June 17. I
felt the need to write this letter
based on several letters to the edi-
tor that ran in the Sumter Times


OPINIONS


* The opinions expressed in Sumter County
Times editorials are the opinions of the editorial
board of the newspaper.

on June 5. I couldn't believe some
of the misconceptions that the au-
thors of these letters claimed.
My wife is a competitive barrel
racer and we even have a small
arena where she practices and we
have on occasion held small
events there. I have spent years
traveling all over Florida and
throughout the Southeast support-
ing her and attending barrel rac-
ing events. The claim that the
noise from the proposed facility
will travel well beyond and into
adjacent counties is ridiculous.
These facilities are built to con-
tain the noise and I have yet to
hear a single person or surround-
ing community for that matter
ever raise an issue with the noise
generated by these facilities.
In fact, I would be willing to
bet it is more likely to hear the
train on a consistent basis than
to be bothered by a sound from
this facility if it is built.
I will admit I had some ques-
tions about the proposal when I
first started hearing about the
project a few months ago. But
the developer, Michael Goldstein
sat down with the local neigh-
bors and told us exactly what he
was proposing. Since then I
have fully supported the project
and have even been spending
several days a week in their
local offices talking to members
of the community about what
this is all about.
In addition to living next to
the property, my wife and I own
and breed horses, including
Quarter Horses, and she com-
petes in barrel racing events
throughout the country.
There is no facility in the area
that offers local riders and train-
ers the types of equestrian oppor-
tunities that will be offered at this
site.
With prices nearing $5 per gal-
lon for diesel and $4 for gas, it
sure would be nice to have an op-
portunity to compete in events
right in our own community
rather than traveling all over
Florida and the country for that
matter.
There are so many upsides to
this proposal, new tax revenue
for Sumter County, a new facility
for people of all ages to come and
see and compete in horse racing
and other equestrian competi-
tions, new entertainment and ad-
ditional support and
opportunities for the equine in-
dustry which is such an signifi-
cant part of this community -
seems to make a whole lot of
sense to me.
I will definitely be voting yes
and my wife and I are looking for-
ward to being frequent patrons
and participants at the facility!

White powder scare at prison BUST a

BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Sumter Correctional au-
thorities weren't sure what
they had on their hands Mon-
day afternoon, when a white
powdery substance fell out of
an envelope in the facility's
mailroom.
Later in the day, tests con-
firmed the powder was ec-
stasy, but for a couple of
hours, authorities weren't
sure what they were dealing
with or how toxic it might be,
according to Greta Plessinger,
of the Florida Department of
Corrections.
The envelope was ad-
dressed to an inmate at the
facility and opening and
checking each piece of mail is
standard procedure, she said.
Sumter County Fire Res-
cue, Sumter County Emer-
gency Management and a
HAZMAT worked the area as
the substance underwent
testing.
The substance tested posi-
tive for ecstasy, Plessinger
said.
The envelope was ad-
dressed to an inmate who is
currently in administrative
confinement as an investiga-
tion takes place. They want to
determine if the inmate knew
about the drug or knew the
person who sent it to him,

don't think I was there two

said of EMS and the hospital
staff.
And surprisingly, "I never

Fussell is recuperating,
walking around some, but
not much, because of the
medication he's on. He said
it makes him a bit woozy and
the sun bothers his head

said.
He said he was afraid of
Fussell's condition as he
called 911, but during the
call, he heard someone yell
that Fussell was out. Swaf-
ford said Fussell is tall and
he believes the tree hit him,
shoving him down into the
seat and knocking him un-
conscious.
According to Sumter Fire
Services Deputy Chief Le-
land Greek, the storm dam-
age was .isolated to the
Webster area, with several
downed trees. One of those
trees came down on a house,
piercing the roof in seven
spots, but no injuries.
He said the shift com-

Sumter teen gains Eagle ranking


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Teen Corey Stoops knows
a little something about
commitment and what fol-
low-through means after
all, he is an Eagle Scout and
follow-through is a key for
achieving the rank.
But Stoops not only went
after his Eagle rank, he suc-
ceeded when others said he
would fail.
Stoops didn't get into
scouting until he was 13.
Typically, Eagles need to
start by the time they're 11,
at the latest that's because
they have to acquire 21 merit

badges.
Stoops said scouts usually
earn five or six a year and
that's if they go to summer
camp.
In the past few years, he
earned more than 33 merit
badges, donated 20 first aid
kits to South Sumter High
School and made Eagle.
"I feel fortunate and
proud for being able to
achieve such a prestigious
award," Stoops said.
He plans a "lifelong com-
mitment to the values and
morals that I learned in Boy
Scouts of America."
As for the project, 'At the
time, the school only had two
functioning kits, a big one for

football and a smaller one
for other sports."
Stoops said he ap-
proached Kim Cross, who
was the athletic trainer for
the high school at the time,
and she gave him some di-
rection in their needs.
He said he had to get troop
approval, then Principal
Preston Morgan's approval
and finally the scouting
council's approval, before he
could even begin the project
Once it was approved, he
gathered support from sev-
eral different directions, in-
cluding the K-Mart store in
Inverness, his church and
his troop 351.
He said the church, Cal-
vary Apostolic in Oxford,
helped him host two
spaghetti dinner fundrais-
ers. His troop worked a car
wash and the store, as well
as other businesses, made
donations. They earned
more than $800, purchasing
Craftsman plastic toolboxes
and the medical goods to fill
them.
Stoops was able to provide
the kits and $75 to the
school.
"We started in March and
we turned them in Septem-
ber," he said.
Now that it's done, Stoops
said he feels "good and re-
lieved.
"Good because it helps

other people and relieved
that it's over."
They spent more than 196
hours completing the proj-
ect, from start to finish.
"To me it was major,"
Stoops said of achieving
Eagle.
That's because when he
started scouting at 13, he
started with someone else.
When the other person


stopped attending, his par-
ents urged him to stay and
he succeeded.
With strengths in math
and science in academics,
he said, "I also have multi-
ple strengths that I have ac-
quired through the Boy
Scouts of America," striving
to be helpful, trustworthy
and loyal.

The opening ceremony
drew the crowd with all the

flew with flags depicting
each of the challengers'

athletes, representing 13
countries.
After all the other coun-
tries had been introduced, a
rider entered the arena, dis-
playing the American flag
and a trio of voices sang the
national anthem.
, The song was followed by a


final introduction rider, car-

the announcer proclaimed,
"Let the games begin."
Dressage class competi-

Sumter sports



Jenkins journey went from Wildwood to Auburn


LARRY BUGG
Staff Writer

Thavius "TJ" Jenkins is
making the long trip back
home this summer.
Jenkins graduated from
Wildwood High School in
1998 and is currently work-
ing and living in Greenville,
South Carolina.
His former Wildcat bas-
ketball coach, James Pres-
ley, is bringing Jenkins back
to take part in the summer
program Presley is running
at Wildwood High.
"He is doing a lot for this
camp," said Presley. "TJ was
a football player and track
athlete at Auburn Univer-
sity."
"I came into a very good
situation when I took over at
Wildwood (as head basket-
ball coach). He was a senior
at the time. We were 0-9 at
the start of the season.
'"After Christmas, it took a
while to get them to buy into
the discipline. After the
Christmas break, we went
on a run. We were one game
away from the Final Four.
We lost to Hamilton County."
Presley said Jenkins was
impressed when he took
part in a local charity.
"There were a lot of com-
munity programs," Presley
said. "One of them was Feed
the Hungry program. First
time we took part in it, the
bus was quiet. I can remem-
ber Thavius saying it made


a big impact on him. It
opened up a whole other
area of life to him. He and
some other players talked
about the program. That one
event at Christmas, 1997
opened their eyes to the
real world."
Jenkins was something of
a project to Presley.
"Thavius was like a wild
child," the former coach
said. "We had to pull him in.
We had to discipline him.
Once he fell into that phi-
losophy, he worked very
hard for the basketball pro-
gram.
"It paid off for him. I
ended up winning Boys Bas-
ketball Coach of the Year for
Lake and Sumter counties."
Jenkins was named Class
3A All State in football. He
went to state in four events
in track. He played in the
Lake-Sumter All Star Bas-
ketball Game his senior
year. He averaged 13 points
per game in basketball.
"I was known for dunking
the ball," Jenkins said.
Dunking is not that easy,
especially since Jenkins is
an even six feet tall.
Jenkins, now 28, played
college football and track at
Auburn University. He
played cornerback for
Auburn.
He ran the 400 meters and
400 hurdles. He was a fresh-
man All Southeastern Con-
ference in track.
He left Auburn in 2001.
Since then he has become

a manager for United Parcel Greenville, S.C.
Service. He lives in Jenkins said he occasion-


ally comes back to Wild-
wood to visit his mother,
Avon Hambrick. His
brother, Ezra Jones, was a
scholarship athlete at Mis-
sissippi State and was a
three-time All American in
track. He will also speak at
the camp.
Jenkins is now into coach-
ing.
He is a coach in recre-
ation football and basket-
ball leagues in Greenville.
"We were the champs in
basketball and runners-up
in football," Jenkins said.
The former Wildcat en-
joys the job of role model
and teacher involved in
coaching.
"Coaching is giving back
to the kids," Jenkins said.
"It's very gratifying."
Jenkins said he will take
part in the James Presley
Dream Center Basketball
School on July 12. He will be
a guest speaker there.
Presley didn't have a lot of
time to make an impact on
Jenkins.
"We were together only
one year," Jenkins said. "We
had a good football program
and were strong in track.
Basketball was suffering.
We went really far his first
year. I remember he said
this is going to be a program.
"He brought a whole lot of
discipline," Jenkins said.
"He was fun to play for. He
was an assistant coach at
Leesburg High before he
came over. He was home-


grown in Wildwood. He
came back
"It was like Dorothy in the
'Wizard of Oz'. There's no
place like home.
"He came with a lot of
fresh, new ideas. It was real
good. We were district
champs and regional final
runners-up. We won more
games that year than my
previous two years com-
bined."
Wildwood High has had a
strong tradition of pumping
out athletes for years.
"Wildwood always has
athletes," Jenkins said.
"There are so many ath-
letes. I can think of 50 Cats
that left there to play ball in
college in one sport or an-
other. There was Marvin
Coleman who played in the
Canadian Football League.
Ron Dixon, Ellis Johnson,
Brian Haugabrook, Mario
Davis, Alfred Corbin and
others."
The former Wildcat stand-
out feels the need to give
back.
'"At this point, you want to
do something positive for
the kids," he said. "There is
so much negative right now.
If we don't grab hold of the
kids, they will be swooped
up in negative things. The
negative things are drugs,
alcohol, violence and other
things."
And giving back will bring
Jenkins back to Sumter
County.

Alive" was the day's theme,
according to club manager

the brick will help the club

Basketball program open to dreams In this corner


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer
Looking for a place to
dream?
If you're a teen, or you have
a teen and you want to make
sure they've got dreams, James
Presley is working to back you
up.
Assistant principal at Wild-
wood High School, Presley
and his wife Yolanda are
building "Operation Hope" for
youths in the central Florida
area.
One of those components is
the "Dream Center Basketball
Program."
"It's a lot different from a
camp," said Presley
While the kids will deft-


nitely learn basketball, they'll
also meet and hear athletes
who have honed their sports
abilities.
"As a leader and assistant
principal in our area, I've dis-
covered that kids no longer
know how to answer the ques-
tion, 'What is your dream?'
"Kids don't even dream
about the NBA or NFL any-
more," he said.
"Our goal, at the end of the
day, is to inspire kids to
dream."
Designed for sixth to ninth
graders, the program will in-
clude a list of motivational
speakers and will be from
June 14 through July 27 at the
Wildwood High School gym.
The sessions will be from 3


p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and
Sunday and the only cost is a
$20 registration fee, which
pays for the camp T-shirt and a
cookout at the end of the
camp.
The Presleys worked as
youth ministers in Lake
County and Mrs. Presley al-
ready initiated an after-school
program there.
Along with the motivational
speakers and learning the fun-
damentals of basketball, the
kids will get a chance to take
part in three-on-three and
five-on-five competition.
Another aspect of the
Dream Center includes the
"Midnight Basketball League"
for an older crowd aged 17-25
years.


That includes workshops
with individuals graduating
and pursuing their GED.
Presley has also worked
with the Department of Juve-
nile Justice.
With his varied background
working with youths, he said
he's learned that the term "at-
risk" can be applied to more
kids today than before.
'All kids have issues we're
living in a time right now when
society is introducing issues to
kids."
He said they're working "to
stand in the gap and try to help
the next generation."
To sign up, or for more in-
formation, contact Presley at
(352) 636-2188 or e-mail dream-
centerbs@aol.com.


Hart, Carter Sr. to speak at Dream Center


LARRY BUGG
Staff Writer

Clint Hart and Vince
Carter's father will be among
the speakers at the Dream
Center Basketball School
starting Saturday at Wildwood
High School.
Hart is a starting cornerback
for the San Diego Chargers
and a graduate of South
Sumter High School.
Hart has said he has not de-
cided on a date when he will
speak. Hart has a camp every


year at South Sumter High
School. He was also named
San Diego Charger Man of the
Year this year because of his
charitable work.
Hart never played collegiate
football but played Arena
Football en route to the pros.
James Presley, the director
of the Dream Center Basket-
ball School, said Vince Carter
Sr, director of the Midnight
Basketball Program in Or-
lando, will speak July 13. He is
the father of professional bas-
ketball player Vince Carter.
"Vince had a younger son
who took a wrong turn," Pres-


ley said. "That's the story that
will be told."
Presley said he didn't know
if Carter Junior will be able to
attend. Carter played at Day-
tona Beach Mainland High
School and has played profes-
sionally for the Toronto Rap-
tors and the New Jersey Nets.
Presley, a recent inductee
into the Flagler College Hall of
Fame, will be the keynote
speaker. Presley is a graduate
of Wildwood High. He has
coached basketball at Wild-
wood High and other schools
and is currently the assistant
principal at Wildwood High.


Presley said that Wesley
Green, son of former pro bas-
ketball player Kenny Green,
will also speak. Wesley has
played at DePaul University
and is looking into playing pro-
fessional basketball in Eu-
rope. He is a graduate of
Eustis High School and will
speak July 27.
The Dream Center starts
Saturday at 3 p.m. in the Wild-
wood High gym. It is open to
youngsters in sixth through
ninth grade.
The charge for the school is
$20 to pay for the T-Shirt and
cookout at the end of the
school. The School will end
July 27.

South Sumter High School students, parents go to Europe


South Sumter High School
Students and Parents Expand
the Classroom to London,
Paris and Madrid.
Local Foreign Language
Teacher Sandra McClanahan
gives students the world on a
trip to England, France, and
Spain.
On June 9 several students
of South Sumter High School
embarked on a 15-day adven-
ture on an EF Educational
Tour to England, France, and
Spain.
Rather than just reading
about Big Ben, the Mona Lisa,


Versailles, and the Sagrada
Familia, they are going to ex-
perience these historical
treasures firsthand, taking
their understanding of world
history and cultures to a new
level.
Participants include Tyler
Burns and his father, Ken
Burns, Amanda Pasko, Nicole
Palmer, Justin Abney, and Ian
McClanahan.
The tour includes stops in
London, Paris, Bordeaux,
Biarritz, Pamplona,
Barcelona, Toledo, and
Madrid. Highlights include


visits to Notre Dame Cathe-
dral, the Louvre, Chartres
Cathedral, Chenonceau Cas-
tle, Roman ruins, Parque
Guell, Versailles, Windsor Cas-
tle, Madrid's Royal Palace, the
Prado, and an authentic Fla-
menco evening in Barcelona.
Guided city tours are also in-
cluded in each of the major
cities on the tour. A special
treat will be passage on the
now-famous Eurostar, the
train that takes travelers be-
tween England and France,
under the English Channel.
Students who are not seniors


this year will have the oppor-
tunity to complete coursework
upon returning from their
tour, enabling them to receive
extra high school credit.
Ms. McClanahan has al-
ready planned the 2009 trip as
well. That 16-day trip will in-
clude Paris, Versailles,
Barcelona, the French Riviera
(Monaco and Avignon), the
Leaning Tower of Pisa, Flo-
rence, Rome, Pompeii, Sor-
rento, and the Isle of Capri.
"In today's world, interna-
tional education and cultural
knowledge is more important


than ever," said Ms. McClana-
han. "I not only believe in the
educational value EF Educa-
tional Tours provide our stu-
dents academically, but I feel
strongly that world travel
changes their perspective. It
can even influence career di-
rection."
In preparation for the trip,
participants were meeting in
the evenings in order to re-
ceive a few lessons in conver-
sational French and Spanish,
and to watch PowerPoint pre-
sentations on some of the high-
lights of the tour that they'll be


experiencing. "It is one thing
to learn about world history
and other cultures in a class-
room. But it will mean so
much more to actually see the
Eiffel Tower in person, to taste
real French and Spanish food,
and to see what life is like in
another country," said Ms. Mc-
Clanahan.
These trips are open to any-
one interested in European
travel, teen and adult alike,
but who are not quite ready to
take off on their own. For more
information, contact Sandra
McClanahan at 793-3525.

Bonnie Walters, second from left, is shown with a new fishing pole prize, a prize she received for catching the most fish at a recent Outdoors Without Limits event at
Colt Creek State Park. Walters, a client of SCARC (Sumter County Association for Retarded Citizens) is shown at the SCARC office in Bushnell with Outdoors Without
Limits Vice Chairman Rich Cole, left, Chairman Ron Berry, center, SCARC director Marsha Perkins, right, and Outdoors Without Limits Chaplain Bill Farmer, second from
right. Not shown is Toni Coleman, Outdoors Without Limits secretary/treasurer.



Fishing Outdoor/4



Without limits
ay 24 was a day of fishing, fun and food for well
over 100 people that attended the Colt Creek
State Park Inaugural ADA Fishing event hosted
by the Sumter Chapter of Outdoors Without Limits
(OWL).
Over 40 disabled people from SCARC, Inc. in Bush-
nell, Marion ARC Ocala, and Sunrise ARK Leesburg
joined other disabled fisherman for a day of fishing at
the new state park south of Webster.
The 60 plus volunteers helped the participants by
baiting their hooks and unhooking their catches.
Though the fishing was a little slow, everyone had
fun.
Park Manager Scott Spaulding and his staff worked to
make the event successful and even provided a short
tram ride through the park for everyone before lunch.
The OWL committee grilled hotdogs and provided '
cupcakes and other snacks for all in attendance. Participants were lined up and fishing "without limits" because of help from volunteers.


A volunteer tends the hotdogs as over 100 hungry people gather under the tents to
eat.


Bonnie Walters from SCARC is excited by her catch.
