SCARC faces severe funding cuts &


Seeking fundraiser sponsors


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

"I've never seen it this bad
before."
Marsha Perkins, SCARC
executive director, has said
more than once before that
SCARC is facing hard times
financially. Each time, it's
been true, and it keeps get-


ting worse for the Bushnell
organization for develop-
mentally disabled residents.
Most recently, state legis-
lators have slashed SCARC's,
budget for services by a total.
of $70,000, but that's not
what worries Perkins the
most
The state also cut funding
for each client by varying
amounts, in order to cut


$100 million from the state's
budget
The worst part? The most
severely disabled residents
are the ones facing the
biggest cuts the ones who
need care the most. The
three with the greatest
needs live in group homes
and require constant care.
They were receiving $65,000
a year but are now down to


$55,000.
That's a collective loss of
$30,000 toward their care,
and it's not enough to cover
what they need to live.
The situation is so bad
that Perkins said it's going to
take a miracle to get them
through.
"That's really what it's
down to. It's miracle time,"
she said. Community sup-
port, "sheer luck, and tough
choices" are how SCARC
has managed to survive so
far.


Nobody wants to think
about what will happen if
they can't raise enough
money to make up the dif-
ference for those residents.
"There isn't any really
good answer when it really
comes down to it. We're
playing Russian roulette
with people's lives."
On paper, it would make
the most sense to replace
those residents with three

S r a I Don Clark retires.
After all, Clark, 65, spent 37 years
d in law enforcement, most of them at
the Wildwood Police Department
"We're going to miss Don Clark,"
said Mayor Ed Wolf, who has
worked with the chief since Wolf
first started serving on the City Com-
9 mission in the late 1970s.
p "It's going to be a hard time filling
Don's shoes."
Clark started his career in Wild-
wood as a patrolman in 1967, was
chief in 1970, left to work at the
Sumter County Sheriff's Office, and
went into business for a few years
before returning to the Wildwood
Police Department in 1983.
"I think the biggest thing to be said
about Don is he's just like the rest of
us. He doesn't walk around in a
chief uniform with an air about
him," Wolf said.
"The interests of Wildwood have
always been first, over and above
himself. He always just seems to put
us first, and that's reflected in the
way the department has been man-
aged," the mayor said-
"Everybody respected him," said

Florida state parks celebrate literacy in September


The Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion's (DEP) Florida State
Parks are celebrating the
second annual Literacy
Month this September at
each of the state's 161 state
parks. In conjunction with
International Literacy Day
oft Sept. 8 and National Li-
brary Card Signup Month,
entrance to all of Florida's


state parks will be free the
week of Sept 7 to 13 for visi-
tors who bring a library
card, library book, or who
donate a new or gently used
family book
"Promoting literacy at
Florida's state parks creates
an appreciation for both
reading and the environ-
ment that visitors can take
back to the classroom and


community," said Florida
State Park Director Mike
Bullock. "September's Lit-
eracy Month is the perfect
time for all park visitors, in-
cluding families and schools
to experience resource-
based recreation while en-
hancing the mind through
literacy events."
Florida's state parks,
along with local libraries


and schools, will host a vari-
ety of events during Septem-
ber including book readings,
author appearances and
book exchanges. Books do-
nated during Literacy
Month will go to schools and
libraries in need or be used
for permanent book ex-
changes within state park
collections. The Florida De-
partment of Education's


(DOE) Just Read, Florida!
program will also distribute
lists of nature-themed read-
ing materials to libraries
and educators, and Literacy
Month bookmarks will be
distributed at libraries,
bookstores and state parks
through a partnership with
the Florida Lottery.

Pet cat shot,

Owner wants
killer to confess
AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer-

Denise Millett of Lake
Panasoffkee was shocked
two weeks ago when she
found her 1-year-old cat,
Nala, dead in her back yard.
Someone had apparently
shot the cat in the head and
then cut off half of its tail,
according to Millett, who
hopes that whoever did it
will confess.
"I'm hoping whoever did
it has a conscience maybe
they'll tell somebody,"_she
said. "Eventually, it'll get
back to who did it"
Millett, who has 12 cats,
described Nala as a beauti-
ful and trusting cat that
would come running when
she heard her name
"She'd follow you all over
the place."
Nala was born to one of
several stray cats left be-

who have lesser needs. But
it's one thing to look at the
numbers and "it's quite an-
other when you start put-
ting names and faces to it,"
she said.
It's not a matter of cutting
expenses here and there to
make up for it, either.
Perkins said SCARC's
budget has been cut as
much as possible, mainly in
staff positions.
"If there ever was any fat,
it's been cut out a long time
ago," she said.
"Now we're down to the
brass tacks, what's left. At
some points, there's noth-

ing left to cut to keep the
program going."
She's even seriously con-
sidered cutting her own po-
sition, which, with a
part-time bookkeeper,
makes up the entire admin-
istrative staff--the same as
it was in 1981.
"Now in 2008.. .we're back
to me and the part-time
bookkeeper."
Another irony in the situ-
ation is that one of the
three clients most affected
by the budget cuts all of
them familiar faces to many
in the community is the
reason the group homes
were created 10 years ago.
These three clients don't
have any family members
who can care for them, and
they would no longer be
able to live in Sumter


"You get close to them,"
Millett said.
Millett discovered the
black and grey cat dead at 7
a.m. Aug. 19.
The night before, Millett
had taken her mother to the
hospital and her husband
was working late.
According to the report
filed with the sheriff's of-


County-if the SCARC group
home wasn't an option.
They would end up
where the state decides to
send them, "wherever in
the state of Florida there's
a bed available shipped
out, that's all you can call
it," she said.
"It could be Pensacola or
Key West. They would lose
everything they know be-
cause they wouldn't be in
the county. That's the cruel
thing."
SCARC is planning a fish-
ing tournament next month
in hopes of raising money
to help offset the budget
cuts. But so far, they don't
have much financial sup-
port.
"We don't have a single
sponsor. It's a very difficult
economy. .A lot of people

Man suspected of animal cruelty


AMANDA MIVMS
Staff Writer

A Coleman man was
charged with five counts of
animal cruelty Aug. 28 after
his dogs were reportedly
found emaciated and in
poor health.
The suspect, 28-year-old
Michael Bowen was ar-
rested after an anonymous
complaint led a sheriff's
deputy to Bowen's home
where the deputy found five
dogs considered to be ema-
ciated, according to the
sheriff's office report.
One of the dogs was
chained to a doghouse and
the rest were in kennels, ac-
cording to the report.
The dogs, four pit bulls
and a "cur dog," didn't have
access to food, and one of
them didn't have access to
water. Water available to the
rest of the dogs "that had
some sort of larva growing
inside," according to the re-
port.


Michael Bowen


The suspect reportedly
told the deputy that he ran
out of dog food three days
earlier but had been feeding
the dogs scraps he brought
home from a restaurant
where he works.
Most of the dogs had sores
and their ribs and back-
bones were visible, accord-
ing to the report. One of the
dogs couldn't stand on its
own.
The deputy noticed that
an empty kennel "smelled of
decay as if something re-
cently died in it."
Bowen reportedly told the
deputy that one of the dogs

had gotten sick and died
there three days earlier and
buried it earlier the same
day the deputy arrived.
Bowen told the deputy the
dog "looked like the others"
and had some kind of dis-
ease.
Bowen said "all of his dogs
were hunting dogs and one
of them had caught some-
thing i few weeks ago and
died" and the other dogs
also got sick, according to
the report.
Bowen said he gave the
animals penicillin but it did-
n't help. He said he had not
taken any of them to a vet-
erinarian.
An animal cruelty investi-
gator removed the remains
of the buried dog from the
property for further investi-
gation. The animals were
taken to a veterinarian in
Marion County for treat-
ment.
Bowen was arrested and

Help SCARC by participating

in fishing tournament
Summer County is fortunate in the number of charities
and not-for-profit organizations within its borders.
And if there's one that really deserves to be noticed,
it's SCARC.
SCARC has been around for more than 20 years, and it
provides a great service. It enriches its clients' lives by giv-
ing them a place to work, a place to interact, a place to
live, and a place to belong.
Sumter County, its developmentally disabled residents
and their families, are fortunate SCARC is here and the
community should be proud of its achievements.
Because of SCARC, eight disabled people do not have to
live in an institutional setting. They live in four-bedroom
homes with their own bathrooms. Their home is a home in
every sense, even if some of them need constant attention
and care.
Unfortunately, SCARC is in real trouble financially, and
so are those who live in the group homes.
If it seems like we've said that before, it's because we
have. Well, it's truer now than it's ever been.
We said that back in May this year, when the organiza-
tion didn't know how it was going to get by because of fi-
nances. That was before a $70,000 budget cut came down
the pike July 1. And before a separate budget cut of indi-
vidual funding for SCARC's clients was approved. All 50 of
them are affected, but three of those clients in particular
- those who live in group homes and who have the great-
est need are being the most severely affected. Those
three are each having their individual assistance cut by
$10,000. What they're ending up with is not enough to
cover their living expenses.
SCARC is hoping for a miracle. They're having a
fundraiser fishing tournament in Lake Panasoffkee next
month and hoping to drum up some financial support.
We know SCARC isn't the only organization feeling the
economic crunch right now, but even those without a lot to
give can offer support. Why not go in with a friend and
split the cost of a two-person fishing team?
True, a little bit of money won't do much good. But a lit-
tle bit from a lot of people and businesses can make a
world of difference. It can mean the difference between
someone keeping his home or being moved out of familiar
surroundings to somewhere he's never been. It can mean
the difference between "home" and "institution."
SCARC doesn't have any sponsors yet, so it's time to get
involved. It's a good opportunity to have some fun, adver-
tise your business by becoming a sponsor, and maybe even
catch a few fish.
Available sponsorships are in the amounts of: up to $500
(bronze), $500 to $1,000 (silver) and $5,000 (platinum). The
cost to register for the tournament is $70 per team (for one
or two-person team). The tournament is set for Oct 11 at
Tracy's Point Fishing Lodge.
For more information about the tournament or to regis-
ter, call SCARC at 793-5156 or visit www.sumtercounty-
times.com and look under "Community," or visit
www.scarcinc.com.




Letter to the editor


Cat killer needs
to confess
On the night of August 18, 2008
someone entered my property
without permission. You walked
down my driveway in the darkness
of the night My cat, Nala, left her
place on the porch and followed
you.
Every day Nala and I walked
around our property. She must
have assumed you were just walk-
ing around and she would join
you. You walked past my house to
my back yard along the driveway.
You turned and spoke to Nala but
instead of kind words and a loving
pat ... you pulled out a gun and
shot her in the head as she looked
at you. She died instantly. But
killing her was not enough ... you
then mutilated her body and left
her lying in the driveway for me to
find.
Nala did not attack you! You
knew nothing about Nala. She was
born on my property to a stray. I
placed food on my walkway for her
mother. Each day her mother car-
ried her and her brothers to the
porch. I would pat them as she ate.


Soon the babies were coming to
eat with their mother. Nala was
beautiful. She was petite with
beautiful markings. She was trust-
ing and would come running when
her name was called. But you
know she was beautiful and trust-
ing ... you saw that yourself before
you shot her.
When Nala was six months old, I
took her, her mother and brothers
to be neutered and spayed. So you
see I was a responsible owner!
Nala never left my property ei-
ther! When you chose to trespass
on my property and you killed
Nala, you took away not just my
pet, but my friend.
Why were you on my property?
Were you poaching deer? Stealing
from us? You did steal from us, our
precious Nala. She was only one
year old. And we miss her so
much. So you see, I know what you
did and how you did it. But I don't
understand why you did it. And I
hope when or if your conscience
finds you, you will turn yourself in
and pay for what you did.

Letters to the editor


Thanks for
the supplies
Students at Webster Elementary
recently received school supplies
frgm the Sumter county organiza-
tion, "Tools for Schools." This or-
ganization is headed up by Angela
Taylor and Frank Slaughter Insur-
ance Company Students were ex-
cited and greatly appreciated all
the wonderful new school supplies.
In addition, the Board of County
Commissioners also provided Web-
ster Elementary students with
needed school supplies.
The students and staff would like
to thank all those evolved in this
great endeavor.
Webster Elementary School
Tier system will
force closings.
Congratulations to Governor
Crist and the legislature! You have
just turned the care of the intellec-
tually and developmentally dis-
abled back fifty years.
Is it your intention to warehouse
those with I/DD and return to the
shameful era of just locking them
in an institution and forgetting
about them? The Tier system will
force many care facilities to close
and leave many vulnerable citizens
essentially homeless.
I have been reviewing the Area
13 Review Form and am stunned at
the criteria for Tier 1. Obviously no
one with any medical background
was involved when determining
some of the criteria; for example, 4
hours of continuous nursing. I have
been a nurse for 41 years and have


worked in hospitals, nursing homes
and group homes and have never
spent four continuous hours with a
patient/client. There are not
enough nurses in the world for
every patient/client to have a nurse
standing by their bed for that
length of time.
How much time and money was
spent on the QSI program? I spent
many hours assisting the reviewer
and then the whole QSI program
was discarded. Another example of
government waste! What about Del
Marva? You want to save money -
that's a good place to start. How
about Maximus also?
If the general public ran their
house budget the way APD does
there would be a glut of bankrupt-
cies filed.
I am guardian for two severely
disabled people. Besides their gen-
eral health and physical disabili-
ties, they have no one to care for
them. One of them also suffers sim-
ply from age. Are they destined to
become another lost soul in a men-
tal institution?
Balancing a budget is difficult
for all of us in the current eco-
nomic times, but those of us at
home don't throw out "Mom, Dad,
Grandma" because it would be eas-
ier on our budget. I pray that this
situation can be straightened out
before some tragedy occurs.
I love working in this field and
am proud of my peers who give so
much to help those less fortunate. I
hope that you and the legislature
take another look at the I/DD situa-
tion and get intelligent input from
medical personnel who are ac-


tively involved in the care of the
developmentally disabled.

SCARC plans
fishing tourney
Just a reminder about the
SCARC, Inc. Benefit Fishing Tour-
nament scheduled for Saturday,
Oct. 11 at Tracy's Point Fishing
Lodge on Lake Panasoffkee.
We're looking for fishermen and
women as well as sponsors for the
tournament. We are going to put
the sponsors' names on T-shirts and
so need the sponsors in by Septem-
ber 12.
All the information about the
tournament as well as the entry
forms and sponsor forms are avail-
able on our website:
www.scarcinc.com.
This is an important fundraiser
for SCARC, Inc. Our annual fund-
ing was cut by $70,000 on July 1
when the new state budget imple-
mented a rate cut of 7.21percent
Now we are facing more cuts on
Oct. 1- perhaps as much as $50,000
to $100,000 when the state imple-
ments caps on services for people
with developmental disabilities. To
keep our group homes and day pro-
gram open we are trying to in-
crease revenues as well as
decrease expenditures.
We need your help to get the
word out about this tournament
Please forward this message to
anyone who you think may be inter-
ested.

t can seem as if mornings just fly
by when rushing to get ready for
work or school, according to
Lindsay Place of family album
radio. Eating breakfast can easily be
forgotten or neglected on busy
mornings like these. However,
breakfast may be the most impor-
tant meal that you and your family
eat all day.
Eating a morning meal has many
healthy ramifications. It is impor-
tant to "refuel" your body after not
eating for many hours during the
night Breakfast provides the glu-
cose that is the primary energy
source for the body and the brain.
Gail Frank of the American Dietetic


Association states that, "breakfast
skippers often feel tired, restless or
irritable in the morning." The
brain's functions are very sensitive
to changing glucose levels. Research
has also shown that missing this
meal diminishes the mental per-
formance of children, young adults
and the elderly
Eating breakfast may also help in
weight management because it re-
duces hunger and prevents eating
binges. People who eat a daily
breakfast are "far less likely to be-
come obese, compared to those who
skip the first meal of the day," ac-
cording to one study by the Harvard
Medical School.
So, to start off your day on the
right foot, make sure that breakfast
is included in your family's routine.
Simple meals such as whole grain
cereals, fresh fruits, and eggs can be
prepared easily and quickly. These
kinds of foods also provide energy
and many nutrients needed to stay
healthy.

"How do I decide which funeral
home to call when the time comes?"


Aside from the requirement that all funeral homes be
licensed by the state, some basic questions you might ask
when selecting a funeral home include: Are they flexible
enough to handle your specific needs? Are decisions made
locally or from an out-of-town corporate office? Are they
full service? Do they sub-contract services such as
cremation or do they provide these options on-site?
Everyone has different priorities and questions about
funeral pre-planning. We invite your questions and we
will respect your priorities. Please call us for a no cost, no
obligation, no pressure appointment to get the facts on
how you can benefit from funeral pre-planning.

It is true: "Bigger isn't
better." After all, who likes to


their car from the repair shop only to
discover that there had been a "big"
problem and now there is a "big" bill. Or
how about opening up a "big" electric
bill. Ouch! The same can be said of
churches: a big church doesn't always
mean a better church. The real test of a
church is the message being told inside.
Like a sandwich, it is not the bread, but
the meat in the middle that makes it
good.
We would like to invite you to try our
church. We are smaller, but we are very
friendly. We like to get to know everyone
as "family" not just as members. Come
and discover for yourself why "Bigger
isn't always better."

t is so important that
dogs that are timid like
Frenchie are adopted
into the appropriate house-
holds. Timid dogs are very
sweet and gentle in a quiet
adult home. In a busy
household with active chil-
dren, the timid dog will be-
come fearful and stressed.
When building the timid
dog's confidence, a gentle
positive approach is neces-
sary. When you first bring
her into your home, allow
for a week or two for your
dog to become familiar with
her surroundings and the
household routine. Keeping
to a structured schedule for
feeding times and walks
outside builds assurance
and trust. Never raise an


angry voice to your timid
dog, but calmly guide or
correct her.
Basic obedience training
taught with patience,
praise, and treats is a way to
communicate proper man-
ners to your dog, and build
a trusting bond. When she
understands what you are
asking of her, and she re-
ceives praise, her confi-
dence grows. Trained
professionals can help you
with specialized training
for timid, shy, and fearful
dogs, or help can be found
on the internet, in books, or
on TV
One of the most reward-
ing experiences for all of us
who love animals is to help
a frightened or timid ani-
mal to overcome their fears
and live a happy life. When
providing correct guidance
and using positive methods,
the amazing results you will
witness will not only better
the life of your pet, but give
purpose to your life.

apartment's biggest prob-
lems. Sometimes, a lone of-
ficer would have to respond
to a bar that had 800 to 1,000
people.
"You went," Clark said.
"You had to go- no excuses.
You had to go."
It's not surprising that
he's had a few close calls
and unpleasant encounters
over the years.
"I've been shot at ... I've
been hit, spit on."
Clark found himself in
the middle of a shootout
while working for the sher-
iff's office, alongside
Farmer, who was actually
shot in the boot that day
The standoff started when
Farmer responded to a
home where a man had


killed his mother and
grandmother. The suspect
"tried his best to kill me,"
recalled Farmer.
"That was a trying day.
Don backed me up on that
particular call," he said.
"Don was the first one of
the first people to arrive."
After a long standoff, the
suspect eventually took his
own life.
Another time, in the '70s,
Clark was punched in the
face just as he approached
the cab of a tractor-trailer
on the roadside. It was dur-
ing the time he worked for
the sheriff's office, and he
was supposed to have al-
ready left work to go on va-
cation.
Clark remembers exactly
what he said as he ap-
proached the cab of the
truck.
"What's the matter,
neighbor, you stuck?"
Clark then found himself
falling backwards to the
ground. He drew his gun as
he came back up, but that
didn't deter the trucker.
He told Clark, "you better
hope that gun's made out of
chocolate, 'cause I'm gonna
make you eat it."
Clark said that's when he
thought he might be in
some trouble. But he and
Farmer, who also re-
sponded, were able to sub-
due the man, who turned
out to be a cattle rustler,
with teargas.
Clark said through the

years, with all of the ups
and downs, working in law
enforcement has been a
good experience.
"Over the years, it's been
a lot of fun. I've enjoyed it
very much," he said.
"It's been a good experi-
ence in life. Helping people
is an important part of my
life."
Wildwood Police Capt.
Eddie Reeser, who has
worked with Clark for 25
years, said two of Clark's
biggest challenges when he
came back to work in Wild-
wood in the '80s was outfit-
ting the police officers with
the equipment they needed
and curbing the city's drug
problem.
Over the next several
years, Wildwood police
went from having to buy
their own bullets, hand-
cuffs, and flashlights, to
having everything they
needed provided for them,
including a patrol car for
each officer.'
Clark credits his wife of
39 years, Teedlee, for taking
care of their three sons and
daughter during the years


when he worked six days a
week, sometimes 12 to 16
hours a day.
"I credit my wife for rais-
ing my kids," he said. "If it
wasn't for that I don't know
where I'd be."
That's the only thing he
would change the amount
of time dedicated to his
family.
Now he tells the younger
officers to spend time with
their families and to put
family first, and that's
something Clark is looking
forward to after retiring.
The police department
helped him celebrate his
retirement with a "pre-re-
tirement" party in August at
the Wildwood Community
Center (it wasn't a surprise
though). "The chief is never
surprised," Reeser said.
Another longtime em-
ployee, Administrative As-
sistant Pat Antcliff, was also
honored at the get-together.
She retired in late July.
"It was quite an event; it
was quite an honor,"
Antcliff, 64, said about the
retirement party.


"It was a very, very re-
warding job," said Antcliff.
Co-workers "were like fam-
ily because it was a small
department." Antcliff said
she misses her former co-
workers.
"I miss them very much,"
she said. Clark is "one of
the finest people I've ever
known in my life."


Reeser said Antcliff was a
vital part of the police de-
partment.
"She was the glue that
held this place together," he
said. Antcliff is enjoying
spending time at home.
"It's been a long time
since I've been a house-
wife," and she is looking
forward to being one again.

LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

DeAndre Mitchell can see
himself playing some college
football next year.
In the mind of the 6-foot-3,
175-pound Wildwood High
School senior, he can see him-
self as starting strong safety
for the Rambling Wrecks of
Georgia Tech.
Whether this Wildcat ath-
lete ends up playing before
huge crowds in Atlanta, Ga.,
or not remains to be seen.
However, Mitchell's new
head football coach, Matt
Thompson, can easily see him
playing college football some-
where.
For now, though, Mitchell'
starts his third straight season
as quarterback and strong
safety for the Wildcats.
Mitchell has at least one un-
usual characteristic for a
quarterback.
Thompson said he is one of
the strongest, possibly the
strongest, player on the Wild-
cat team.
Mitchell has squatted 405
pounds and can benchpress
225 pounds. He also can run a
4.7 time in the 40-yard dash.
'The thing that is most im-
pressive about DeAndre is his
strength in the weight room,"
Thompson said. "Pound for
pound, he is probably the
strongest kid on the football
team. He power cleans well
over 230 pounds. He has a
great dedication to the weight
foom."
Thompson is happy to have
Mitchell out there and ex-
pects some college to swoop
up his quarterback-safety.


"He's a good kid in the
classroom and he's a leader
on our football team," Thomp-
son said. "I really feel that he
is going to land somewhere in
the secondary. We're going to
push those buttons for the re-
cruiting.
"I think he is going to have a
tremendous season. We have
been teaching him some
things. He has become a
tremendous quarterback.
"We like to throw the ball
occasionally We like to lean
on our running game because
we are fast
"I think he (Mitchell) is
going to bring something spe-
cial to the game, throwing the
ball and especially on de-
fense."
Mitchell isn't the "rah-rah"
loud leader some expect in a
quarterback
"He's kind of a quiet type in


the locker room and a quiet
type of leader," his coach said.
"Boy, does he lead by exam-
ple.
"Offensively, he is the straw
that stirs the drink and defen-
sively, he's the kid who comes
up and makes big plays. He is
such a force in the run, we are
going to be bringing up in the
front seven and front eight.
He is a big hitter. He will take
the big hit"
Thompson said Bethune-
Cobkman University has
shown interest in Mitchell.
Florida Atlantic, Florida A
and M and Florida Interna-
tional also are interested.
Mitchell knows he has a
major challenge in his senior
year.
"It's a hard job (being quar-
terback)," said Mitchell. "This
year, I worked on getting my
passing up.
"I'm competitive."
Mitchell is enjoying the
fresh coaching.
"I like the new coaches," he
said. "We are starting every-
thing new. We were 7-4 last
year.
"I think we can go unde-
feated and go into the play-
offs."
A life-long resident of Wild-
wood, Mitchell said he would
like to get out of Florida.
After football, he said he
might become a film or music
producer.
Mitchell said he averaged
14 points in basketball last
year for the Wildcats but he
said he is a better football
player.
And Mitchell would just
love it if Georgia Tech thinks
this Wildcat should be playing
in Atlanta next year.


Barnes can blitz and



he actually listens


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Montana Barnes can
blitz.
He can make the tackle.
However, the South
Sumter High School line-
backer does something that
South Sumter High head
football coach Inman Sher-
man really appreciates.
Barnes listens.
"He (Barnes) listens ex-
tremely well," said Sher-
man. "He is very selfless.
The team is more impor-
tant to him than anything.
He does everything you ask
him to do. He tries to do it
every time just right. He is
an unusually good football
player who does what he is
supposed to do every time.
It makes our job extremely
easy. It's a team sport and it
will always be about how
good the team is, not how
good I am."
College coaches are
noticing how good Barnes
is.
The Raider linebacker
already has some NCAA Di-
vision 1 schools looking at
him. They include Florida
Atlantic University, Col-
orado State and Indiana
University.
The 6-foot, 190-pound
senior also can sack his ac-
ademics as well. Barnes has
a 3.7 grade-point average.
Football coaches love a
player who is absolutely no
threat to go on academic
probation.
He also runs a 4.7 in the
40-yard dash and can bench
325 pounds.


Montana Barnes


"I am aggressive fast,"
said Barnes. "I do -more
pass rush. I had nine sacks
last year."
Barnes has also proven
he can come back from an
injury.
Barnes suffered a torn
ACL in the last game of the
2007 season.
He has been rehabili-
tated and is now one of the
team's co-captains.
"Montana Barnes is an
outside linebacker," said
Sherman. "He had to go
through surgery. He had a
tremendously intense reha-
bilitation.
"He is a great player. We
think he is our team leader
and someone we are count-
ing on to have a great year.
He is an excellent student."
At 6-foot, 190 pounds,
Barnes said he will likely


have to gain weight when
he goes off to college.
Barnes said he would be
willing to change positions
to safety if necessary in col-
lege.
"I will probably put on
weight," Barnes said. "I
would love to play safety,
too."
Football had a natural at-
traction to this Bushnell
resident.
"I have been watching
South Sumter play all my
life," he said. "I started
watching when I was a little
baby."
He said his football hero
is professional NFL line-
backing great Dick Butkus.
He played for the Chicago
Bears in the '60s.
Football is a matter of
love for Barnes.
"I love the atmosphere,"
he said. "I love the hitting."
The linebacker feels he is
blessed to be able to work
with the South Sumter High
football coaching staff.
"The best coaching staff
is here by far," Barnes said.
He played behind
Kendall Smith, who is
shooting for a starting spot
at Florida State University.
Barnes said he learned a
great deal from Smith. He
believes that Smith,
Yourhighness Morgan, Ben
Moffitt and Earl Everett
have all provided him with
fine role models.
"I have big shoes to fill,"
Barnes said.
Sherman thinks Barnes
can fill those shoes, partly
because the senior listens.

Lake Panasoffkee Restoration Council to discuss project completion


The Lake Panasoffkee
Restoration Council will
meet to discuss the comple-
tion of the Lake Panasoffkee
Restoration project on Mon-
day, Sept 8, at 5 p.m. at the
Lake Panasoffkee Recre-
ation Center's West Wing,
1532 County Road 459, Lake
Panasoffkee.
During the meeting the
council will receive status
updates on the lake dredg-


ing project, canal cleanup
and the sale of shell at the
spoil area. The public is
also invited to share com-
ments.
The Lake Panasoffkee
Restoration Council was
created by the state Legisla-
ture in 1998 to develop a
restoration plan for the
lake. The council is respon-
sible for reviewing the proj-
ect and reporting back on


the project's progress to the
Legislature.
The implementation of
the four-step restoration
plan, which is being man-
aged by the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, began in Sept. 2000.
The first three steps focused
on dredging the,lake. These
steps are scheduled to be
complete in September. The
fourth step of the project in-


volves dredging the residen-
tial canals along the west-
ern shoreline. Sumter
County was the lead agency
on the fourth step.
Steps two and three of the
project began in July 2004
and involved dredging ap-
proximately 7.8 million
cubic yards of sediment
from more than 1,741 acres
of lake area to improve fish
habitats, restore the historic


lake shoreline and improve
navigation.
Since the 1940s, 22 per-
cent of the lake, or 800 acres
of open water arpa, has
been lost to sedimentation
and vegetation encroach-
ment.
Lake Panasoffkee is des-
ignated as an Outstanding
Florida Water by the
Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection, and


is one of the District's Sur-
face Water Improvement
and Management (SWIM)
priority water bodies. Lake
Panasoffkee is the third
largest lake in west-central
Florida and is a nationally
acclaimed fishery.
For more information
about the meeting, please
call Tahla Paige at 796-7211,
ext. 4606 or (800) 423-1476,
