Hospice House sets open house


BOB REICHMAN
Editor
More than three years
ago, -Hospice of Lake and
Sumter announced plans to
build a home in Sumterville
to care for terminally ill
clients.
Since that announcement,
building costs escalated, the
project got stalled a bit and
Hospice underwent a name
change to Cornerstone Hos-
pice.
But come Saturday, Dec. 6,
the wait is over. That's when
a ribbon cutting ceremony
has been scheduled to cele-
brate the opening of the
Lane Purcell Hospice
House.
"We are very. thrilled to


start serving patients in
Sumter County with the
Lane Purcell Hospice
House," said Cornerstone
Hospice President and
Chief Executive Officer Pat
Lehotsky. She called the
project "a real community
effort.
"The community came to-
gether to raise funds, to pro-
vide volunteers, and raise
gifts in kind to make this
dream a reality."
The ribbon cutting is
planned for 10 a.m., with the
open house following and
continuing until noon.
The facility 'is at 2452
County Road 526 E., off U.S.
301, near the Sumterville
campus of Lake Sumter
Community-College.


The eight-bedroom home
is on two acres of land. In
2007, a groundbreaking cer-
emony was on the site hon-
oring people who had
contributed to the effort, in-
cluding land donors Glenn
Wade, Lowell Clark and Jon
Manning.
The home is dedicated to
the memory of Lane Purcell,
a local community leader
who died early in 2005. Pur-
cell was the owner of Pur-
cell Funeral Home in
Bushnell. He died in a vehi-
cle accident.
The open house will pro-
vide an opportunity for the
public to meet staff mem-
bers and to tour the facility.
Refreshments will be
served.


There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday, Dec. 6, to celebrate the opening
of the Lane Purcell Hospice House in Sumterville.

BUSHNELL OPENS

SKATE PARK





BOARDING

I rBushnell residents have noticed less skateboard-
ers on the sidewalks around town recently, there's
a ood reason why- The new skate park at Kenn.'
Dixon Sports Complex in Bushnell opened Sunday,
Nov. 21.
Bushnell's 18-year-old Tomniy Whittaker said be-
fore it opened, he and others had to drive to Lake
County if they wanted to use a skate park. "We come
here like every day now," he said. "It's smaller (than
the park in Tavares) but it's still fi n."
The $100.000 park, a 60-by 100-foot concrete slab
with ramps. rails, and benches, was purchased with a
Florida Recreation Development Assistance Pro-
gram grant.

Wait for disability benefits causes hardship


AMANDA MI.MS
Staff Writer


The wait for Social Security dis-
ability benefits can wreak havoc on
the recipient's finances, especially
if the application has to go through
the appeals process.
In some cases, applicants wait
years from the time they apply until
they get their first payment.
Bushnell residents Katherine
Lindner and her husband, Charles
Lindner, waited 18 months for his
disability and Veterans Administra-
tion payments to start. Charles, 38,
who suffers from posttraumatic

stress disorder and fibromyalgia,
was discharged after 15 years in the
military.
Charles was 19 the first time he
went to the Middle East, and often
volunteered to serve longer periods
of time away from home.
"He had five years left to go. He'd
have loved to finish them out," said
Katherine, 31.
"He was in Desert Storm and
Desert Shield. During this last war
the first time he was deployed he
was in Kuwait. The second time he


was deployed, he had to go straight
t into Baghdad."
After he was discharged, the tran-
sition from two paychecks to one
was difficult for the Lindners, who
have two young children.
Katherine continued working as a
secretary, but she said it was only
because of their other relatives that
they were never in danger of losing
their home. It was that and the lump
sum payment they received from
the military when Charles was dis-
charged, which helped them pur-


chase a home.
A bit of advice they got while wait-
ing was to think of the disability
benefits as a savings account they
never planned to have.
"But when you're losing your
house, when you're losing your car,
that does not help. Fortunately, I
was working and I had good family
(in the area). We scraped by with
what we could. We have an enor-
mous amount of credit card bills
now," she said.
"There's a plethora of people that
have come across this situation."
In fact, Katherine's sister and

County Sheriff's Office re-
port He pointed the weapon
at the pharmacist, demand-
ing the narcotic painkiller
Oxycontin.
According to the report:
"When (the pharmacist)
went behind the shelf con-
taining the Oxycontin, the
suspect told (him) to show


him his hands. (The pharma-
cist) advised him that he had
to go behind the shelf to get
that particular medication,
but if the suspect came to the
pick-up counter, he would be
able to watch him get the
pills. The suspect then left
the main counter and went to
the pick-up window."
The pharmacist handed
the suspect two bottles con-
taining a total of 171 Oxycon-
tin pills valued at $1,156. The
suspect took the bottles, emp-
tied them into a plastic Zi-


ploc bag, and ran out of the
store heading west, accord-
ing to the report.
K-9 units tracked the sus-
pect west through the park-
ing lot and across Buenos
Aires Boulevard and to the
Circle K store on U.S. 441 but

The only customer inside
the store at the time told po-
lice she had not seen or
heard the suspect.
The suspect was described
as a white man in his early
20s, about 5 feet 2 inches tall


Helping the Salvation Army


Funeral homes in Sumter and Lake coun-
ties are joining in the effort to assist needy
families this holiday season.
"We have become acutely aware of how the
current economy is forcing people to make
very difficult choices just to meet their daily
needs", said Jim Semesco, area general man-
ager of Northstar Memorial Group. 'To that
end, we are collecting nonperishable food
items for The Salvation Army and toys for
Toys for Tots. In these trying times it is very
important that we not forget the children and
families who need help today and during the
holidays," Semesco said.
Food and toys will be coll be collected at the four
area funeral homes as well as at the "Night of
Lights" luminary remembrance program at
the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, on Friday,

"While taking time to remember our loved
ones and friends, this seems a very appro-
priate time and place to remember and offer
assistance to those who are living in need",
Semesco said.
The "Night of Light" will include a mes-
sage of hope from the Rev. Sidney Brock,
and, inspirational music by the Rev. Brian
Williams.


Lt Colonel U.S.M.C. (Ret) Terry W, Cannon
will represent Toys for Tots. Bill Stewart, di-
rector of development will be representing
The Salvation Army. Participants will be in-
vited to light a candle in honor of their loved
ones and there will be thousands of lumi-
naries placed in memory.
"This is a very unique opportunity for us
to remember our loved ones and also to help
those who are needy We are very thankful to
Jim Semesco and his associates at the fu-
neral homes and cemetery. The food we col-
lect will bring needed relief to our
almost-empty pantries," said Bill Stewart,
representing the Salvation Army
The ongoing collections of nonperishable
food and toys will be taking place at the fol-
lowing locations; Banks Page Theus Funeral

Winter Fest scheduled


Get ready for snow, enter-
tainment, fireworks and just
good old family fun.
It's definitely in the mix
and all on the schedule at
the Wildwood Winter Fest,
planned for Saturday, Dec.
20, at the Wildwood Commu-
nity Center.
It all starts at 3 p.m. with a
parade.
Following the parade, at
4:30 p.m., the festival,

City of Bushnell Vice Mayor
Warren Maddox said in the
past, business owners have
complained about skaters
using sidewalks and benches.
Now, the business owners
don't have to worry about
skaters, and the skaters have a
place to go.
"It's been a long time com-
ing," said Bushnell Public
Works employee Ruby Mark,
who worked on the grant ap-
plication.
"We've wanted (to build a
skate park) for a long time."
In recent years, teens have
gone as far as collecting signa-
tures in support of building a
skate park.
Maddox said it was a change
in state law several years ago
that really made it feasible for


period, but it's almost im-
possible to do without it,"
she said.
"People need to know. It
could be three years before
they get (a payment). They
have to be ready for this. I
don't know anybody that has
three years worth of salary
saved."
Charlie Keller, spokesman
for Congresswoman Ginny
Brown-Waite who repre-
sents District 5, said it's an
issue her office regularly
deals with - they help with
hundreds of Social Security
cases at a time, many of
them for social security dis-
ability.
Keller also said Florida

Gibson said this fest is not
only designed for holiday
fun, but as a way to celebrate
great American pride.

'The main thing that spear-
headed this was the legisla-
ture, several years ago, passed
a law that held ...government
entities harmless if they would
buila a skate park," he said.
"The money was available
and we had the land, so we de-
cided to do it," he said.
"We try to do what we can
within our means."
Maddox said the city has au-
thorized City Manager Vince
Ruano to seek grant funding
for a possible water spray
park, also for Kenny Dixon
Sports Complex.
"That primarily would be
geared to the younger kids,"
he said. Whether the water

lem, she would like to see
the system change so others
don't have to experience
what she did.
"What good is the system if
it doesn't work? It either
needs to be completely re-
vamped or done away with,
to me. I'd love to see the en-

Government appears


to be headed north
Sumter County government is on the move, and that move is
north - out of Bushnell. The recent approval by the County
Commission to construct government offices near Wildwood
drives home the point that while Bushnell may still be considered
the county seat, the power is headed northward, toward The Vil-
lages.
Most recently, the County Commission has given its nod of ap-
proval to plans to build a 50,000-square-foot building on property
along County Road 139, near County Road 466A., north of Millen-
nium Park in Wildwood. Construction is expected to take about two
years.
What's interesting about this proposed construction is that it in-
cludes not only a new library, but plans to house county adminis-
tration offices.
Currently, those offices reside in Bushnell. County Administrator
Bradley Arnold's office and other offices associated with county
administration are housed in the transformed South Sumter Shop-
ping Plaza, a few miles north of the Sumter County Courthouse.
The courthouse had been the home of county administration
until quarters in the courthouse became so cramped that adminis-
tration, among other offices, recently moved out and into the refur-
bished shopping center.
That move also included moving County Commission meetings to
the new complex.
While it hasn't been determined yet, it shouldn't surprise anyone
that .commission meetings could very well end up moving north to
this new building.
Arnold has already said that the County Commission workshop
meetings, currently held in Bushnell, could end up at the new facil-
ity. It seems like it wouldn't be a far step for all County Commission
meetings to end up there.
While we're not saying that's planned, we certainly wouldn't be
surprised to see it happen, given the current political situation in
Sumter County.
In part, it makes sense. The majority of Sumter's population is in
the northern portion of the county.
On the other hand, this could turn out to be just another example
of how the central and southern portions of Sumter County are
being overlooked by government officials.
Election results are certainly showing that the county is basically
controlled by The Village votes. The public is becoming more and
more aware of how government focus has turned to the north, and
their frustration is growing because of it.

Red Cross National
Day of Giving: Dec. 13


The Red Cross has desig-
nated Dec. 13 "National Day of
Giving for the American Red
Cross" as part of its efforts to
reach the $100 million fundrais-
ing goal for the Campaign for
Disaster Relief, which the or-
ganization launched in Septem-
ber.
As a result of an active year of
disasters - a record number of
tornadoes, the worst flooding in
the Midwest in 15 years, an
early wildfire season and an ac-
tive hurricane season - the
American Red Cross launched
a concerted campaign to raise
an initial $100 million to fill its
depleted Disaster Relief Fund.
We are past the halfway point
raising more than $60 million in
cash and pledges.
From January through Octo-
ber 2008, the Red Cross had al-
ready responded to more.than
70 large-scale disasters.
In the Mid-Florida region
which consists of Central
Florida, Polk/Highlands County,
Space Coast, and Coast to Coast
Chapters, we provided relief for
several wildfires and Tropical
Storm Fay as well as a large
number of single-family house
fires.
The Disaster Relief Fund enh-
ables the Red Cross to provide
shelter, food, counseling and
distribution of emergency sup-
plies to people who need it,
whenever and wherever disas-
ters occur. Because emergency
needs cannot wait, the Red
Cross ensures lifesaving servn-
ices are made available imme-
diately to victims of disaster
when they need them most


The Red Cross provides all
relief services free of charge.
The fund also allows the Red
Cross to prepare for emergen-
cies before disaster strikes by
mobilizing personnel and sup-
plies at a moment's notice. This
is only possible through the
generous donations to the fund
by individuals, foundations and
corporations.
Consider this; if everyone de-
cided to donate the cost of a
burger and fries of around $5 to
the Red Cross, it would make a-
lot of difference to someone af-
fected by a disaster.
Simply use your cell phone to
donate $5 to the American Red
Cross Disaster Relief FuRind by
text messaging the keyword
"GIVE" to "2HELP (24357) or
call 1-800-RED CROSS. You can
also donate to the Red Cross by
going to www.redcross.org.
The American Red Cross, a
humanitarian organization led
by volunteers and guided by its
Congressional Charter and the
Fundamental Principles of the
International Movement pro-
vides relief to the victims of dis-
asters and helps people
prevent, prepare for and re-
spond to emergencies.
As a volunteer-led organiza-
tion, The Florida's Coast to
Coast Chapter relies on the gen-
erosity of the communities for
charitable contributions of time
and money to perform its hu-
manitarian mission.

Letter to the editor


Curious about
voting totals
For my own curiosity I decided
to look at some precinct voting to-
tals for this past November's elec-
tion.
My personal interest was
mostly in the Reverse One
Sumter totals. So I thought I
would pass this information on.


The Village precincts voted at
85.9 percent with 1.6 percent vot-
ing for Reverse One Sumter. The
rest of Sumter County voted at
70.5 percent with 74 percent vot-
ing for Reverse One Sumter. An-
other point of information: The
number of registered voters out-
side of The Villages -
24,863. Conversely, registered vot-
ers in The Villages number


35,050. It will continue to be in-
teresting to see the ongoing im-
pact these numbers have on our
whole county.
My thanks to those individuals
who labored so hard to Reverse
One Sumter an'd to provide fair
and equal representation to all of
the county.

Humane Society




Update on Oxford horse neglect case


With the outpouring of con-
cern for the rescued 32 horses
found malnourished and neg-
lected in Oxford on Sept. 11, the
Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County wanted to pro-
vide the community an update
on their condition. '"All the
horses have been receiving lov-
ing daily care and nutrition
thanks to our dedicated volun-
teers" commented Trish Che-
ston, Equine Adoption & Foster
Coordinator on one of her fre-
quent horse visits. "Letters with
donations came in to help us
help them, but the need won't
end there until they find perma-
nent loving homes so, although
we thank everyone so much, we
still need financial help from the
community until they are placed
in forever homes, provided we
are awarded permanent custody.
The worst thing that could hap-
pen is to betray their (horses)
trust and send them back to
those living conditions."
The Humane Society/SPCA
had hired legal counsel to file
for a civil custody hearing, but


the original October date was
postponed due to a granted ex-
tension requested by Sally
Grenko-Gregis' defense attorney.
The Humane Society/SPCA's
hope is to receive permanent
custody so the best interest
would be only that of the horses.
Once fully recovered physically,
they would all have the opportu-
nity to be placed into permanent
safe homes.
"We think these horses really
know how fortunate they are
now that they're out of there and.
being tended to with kindness"
says Sheri Evans, Humane Soci-
ety/SPCA Cruelty Investigator.
Volunteers noted that once the
horses got past the initial risky
transition phase of going from
little to no food on to quality pas-
ture, then hay followed by feed,
you could see a beautiful im-
provement physically and psy-
chologically.in all of them.
They began settling down and
were more willing to be taught
so they were more approachable
to treat their individual needs so
long denied.


"Donations of time, money,
hay, feed and pasture land have
made such a difference in their
lives and we want to say thank
you again to everyone who has
helped and will help with the
next phase of their futures"
stated Trish Cheston. '"Just hav-
ing the volunteers' gentle caring
hands apply healing ointment
and sunscreen on their sun-
burned wounds alone was not
easy, since so many suffered
from neglect this way. I think
both the, horses and the volun-
teers felt better from the time
shared together. We are always
grateful that the good outweighs
the bad, which gives us hope
when faced with such animal
neglect."
Thanks also go to Seminole
Feed and Sparr Building and
Farm Supply of Wildwood for
their continued help. Contact the
Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County, Inc. at 352-793-
9117 or humane@sum.net for
more information on how you
can help these and other ani-
mals in need.

Communion fun 101


Nancy
Kennedy)

Special to the
Times


When I was little, I
used to play church
with my dolls and
stuffed animals.
I'd take gooey white Won-
der Bread, smash it flat and
tear it into round commun-
ion wafers. Then I'd pour
Kool-Aid into colorful shiny
aluminum tumblers, the
kind that used to sweat when
they're cold, and that was my
wine.
I'd say the words, "the
body of Christ" and "the
blood of Christ," and I'd have
my holy snack and then go on
to play something else -
Chutes and Ladders with my
sister or put on my roller
skates and skate around the
block
To me, communion was
something to play. But still, I
always had a drawing to-
ward the sacred. Even when
I've been eyebrow-deep in
sin and rebellion, the notion
of communion, of receiving
and remembering the bene-
fit of the body and blood of
Jesus, has pulled at me.
At my church we consider
communion a sacrament, a
means of grace and a tangi-
ble reminder that we can't
do life apart from Jesus.
We don't believe that com-
munion is for those who are
pure, but for those who are
not and know they're not. It's
for those who know they're
broken and need fixing, who
are weak and need strength.
It's for sinners who know
they're sinners and who
admit they need a Savior

At my church we used to
do communion the way a lot
of churches do, with ushers
passing trays of broken
crackers or bites of bread
and trays of tiny cups of
grape juice down the aisles
for people to take and eat
and drink at their seats.
I'm not sure when we
changed, but now we walk to
the front of the church, take
a piece of bread from a per-
son who looks into our eyes
and says, "The body of
Christ, broken for you." Then
we dip it into a cupful of real
wine held by a person who
says, "The blood of Christ,
shed for you."
Sometimes the servers use
our names - "Nancy, this is
Christ's blood, shed for you."
I love that. I love the get-
ting out of my seat and mov-
ing toward the front of the
church singing songs about
the blood of Jesus. "What
can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of
Jesus" and "There is a foun-
tain filled with blood, drawn
from Emmanuel's veins. And
sinners plunged beneath
that flood lose all their guilty
stains."
I think that's my favorite
part, being reminded of hav-
ing my sins washed away.
Last summer I decided I
loved communion so much
that I wanted to be a com-
munion server I told my, pas-
tor I couldn't think of
anything better than to say
about 50 times in a row,
"This is the body of Christ,
broken for you."
I wanted to be reminded
that communion is coming
together as a body of believ-
ers to eat and drink. It's not
a solitary act, alone in a bed-
room with just dolls and
stuffed animals. Rather, it's
like a family dinner table, a
feast of grace, where we join

All children are invited.


with our Father and remem-
ber who we are - his chil-
dren - and who he is - our
Redeemer
A few months ago we
added a time of staying up
front after receiving com-
munion, to kneel or stand, to
pray or to praise.
From my vantage point as
a server, I get to watch un-
spoken dramas unfold. Cou-
ples holding hands or
wrapping their arms around
each other, people on their
knees, bowing their heads to
the stage steps, then rising to
wipe away tears or walk
back to their seats smiling.
The first time I served they
put me at the grape juice sta-
tion. That's for people who
don't want wine.
At first I was disappointed
because I didn't think I'd get
many "customers," but I was
wrong. Plus, the grape juice
station also has bread, so not
only did I get to tell people
that Jesus shed his blood for
them but that his body was
broken for them, too.
And I had a lot of cus-
tomers, so many that I
smiled through the whole
thing and smiled all the way
home, because God had
smiled on me.
Maybe that's what com-
munion is about, at least par-
tially. A reminder that God
smiles on his own.
So, pass the bread - our
sins are forgiven! Break out
the wine - we are washed
clean! It's time to eat, drink
and be merry - our guilt is
taken away.

Experiencing life with an exchange student Veterans
kdnnlnv


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

When you have one child,
you may as well have two or
three - that could be the pol-
icy of Bushnell resident Lynn
Burris.
Maybe not, but she's an avid
believer in growing a child's
education and cultural expe-
riences. That's the job she
took on when she was looking
for employment in recent
years.
She heads up the local
"Academic Year in America"
program, matching up ex-
change students from around
the world with local host fam-
ilies.
She had,originally wanted
to get to know her way around
the organization before host-
ing a student herself, but she,
her husband Brad and Ciara
have already been host family,
on more than one occasion.
Currently, they're host par-
ents to Laszlo Luening of Ger-
many.
Big placement seasons are
spring and summer and then
again about this time of year,
as students coming in January
need placement
Their family may temporar-
ily host as students are being
placed or transitioning- there
are so many variables in plac-
ing a student and the student
remaining in that home.
This last year, she had two


students she was unable to
find families for.
"One left and went to Geor-
gia after two months," but the
other stayed in the area and
they became the host family
"We just absolutely love
him," she said.
Some of the students stay
for a semester, others an en-
tire year.
In recent weeks, one host
family had financial issues to
deal with and they needed to
find a new host family for the
student.
The teen ended up staying
with the Burris family for sev-
eral weeks before she was
successfully placed with a
new family, Burris said.
"She was at South Sumter
and loves it."
"South Sumter High School
is so open to having exchange
students which has been so
wonderful - because not all
schools are so open to the
idea. They're (schools not
open to the idea) really miss-
ing out," she said, explaining
that the exchange students
bring so much to the school.
As for the teens, Burris said,
"It really teaches them to be
self-reliant, gives them a lot
more self confidence in just
about every area of their life."
She said they learn they
most likely can do things they
thought they couldn't.
They also learn how to man-
age money, deal with peer
pressure and various situa-

Bolles ends South Sumter's playoff run 57-7


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

South Sumter High head
varsity football coach
Inman Sherman holds the
Jacksonville Bolles High
football team in very high
regard.
Bolles gave Sherman
plenty of reason to main-
tain that level of respect
Friday, Nov. 28 in Jack-
sonville.


Bolles beat South Sumter
57-7 to give the Bulldogs the
Class 2A Region 2 champi-
onship.
Bolles is now 12-0. South
Sumter finished a success-
ful season with a 10-2 mark
Bolles running back
Stephen Barnett had touch-
down runs of 44 and 67
yards on his way to 183
rushing yards. Quarterback
Chandler Carr fired a 67-
yard touchdown pass to
Jacob Stenson.


Jawan Jamison added a
38-yard touchdown run.
Bolles scored 34 points in
the second quarter.
Sherman knew what his
Raiders were in for when
they reached the Bolles
game.
"I thought they were very
good, very well coached, a
very good football team,"
Sherman said. "I think they
were fast and physical.
"A true measure of our
success is this. If one of our


teams gets to play Jack-
sonville Bollles, we had had
a pretty good year. We have
had a successful year."
South Sumter quarter-
back Denzel Smith ran for
the only touchdown, a six-
yard run. The 6-foot-2, 200-
pound senior completed six
of 15 passes for 98 yards
and three interceptions.
Bolles' Matt Barnes had all
of the pickoffs.
Cashin Irving, a 5-foot-ll,
195-pound senior running


back, led the Raiders with
33 rushing yards.
For the Raiders, the end
of a season is a sad feeling.
"This week is always a
tough week," Sherman
said. "We have been work-
ing at a steady pace. It's
kind of an empty feeling."
Sherman felt his team
gave its best in a 10-2 year.
"I think we kind of car-
ried the slogan, one team,"
he said. "When we won, we
won as a team and when we


lost, we lost as a team."
Years ago, Jacksonville
Bolles was the number one-
rated football team in the
USA Today poll.
While this year's team
can't compare to that team,
it is no shame for a quality
team like South Sumter to
lose to Bolles.
South Sumter can feel
very proud of a strong sea-
son that ended when they
played a better team.


Frostproof ends Wildwood Wildcats run 27-7


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Wildwood High head foot-
ball coach Dude Thompson
said he believes his Wildcat
team has to beat itself to lose
a game.
Friday, Nov. 28, the Wild-
cats did beat themselves.
Frostproof High helped Wild-
wood. The Bulldogs won 27-7
in a Class 2B regional cham-
pionship on the Wildwood
gridiron.
Wildwood's eight-game
winning streak came to an
end and Wildwood finished
the year with a 10-2 mark, the
best record in 23 years for the
Sumter County team.
Wildwood . averaged 36
points per game coming into
the contest but lost three fum-
bles and was guilty of missed
tackles and dropped passes.
The only Wildcat score
came when quarterback
De'Andre Mitchell found
Justin Akieme on a nine-yard


pass for a touchdown. Cruz
Rodriguez booted the point
after The score came with 31
seconds left in the game.
Frostproof had plenty of
speed and was very illusive.
Bulldog running back Nick
Robey ran for 204 yards on 15
carries and scored touch-
downs on runs of 92 and six
yards. Quarterback D.J.
Barnes had a 61-yard touch-
down run.
The Bulldogs of Polk
County ran for 344 yards.
Wildwood hurt itself, espe-
cially with fumbles. The Wild-
cats fumbled away the ball on
their first offensive play.
Wildwood also stopped
Frostproof on a goalline stand
but the Wildcats could not
capitalize on it.
The Wildcats even made a
successful onside kick recov-,
ery but couldn't find the end
zone until late in the game.
Wildcat running back Rod-
ney Rose had 14 carries for 75
yards. Wildwood, which had
been a dominating rushing


team, had 116 yards on the
ground for the game.
Mitchell finished complet-
ing five of eight passes for 69
yards and the one touchdown.
The game was frustrating
for a team that was used to
success.
After the game, Thompson,
his players and coaches were
emotional. They knew they
were a far better team than
they showed Friday night and
they had all grown as individ-
uals and a team.
"We put our hearts and
souls into these kids and I
hope it has been overwhelm-
ingly evident," said Thomp-
son. "The one thing about this
team that is special is that we
really truly loved each other
A lot of kids say that but I feel
that we as a staff loved them
and they loved us in return. It
is special.
"They took us one huge
step in the right direction. I
can't say enough about these
seniors and the hard work
and the direction they have


instilled in these young kids.
"Our game plan was to run
the football because we are
bigger and stronger than they
were. Now, they were faster
but we could pound them."
Thompson was frustrated
that the game was there for
the Wildcats to take and the
team made human errors.
"The only team that can
beat Wildwood is Wildwood,"
the coach said. "We beat our-
selves tonight. We told them
that every week
"The one night to come out
flat, right off the bat, putting
the ball on the ground, drop-
ping passes, not stepping on
simple protection stuff that
we have done all year long,
those things got us beat
tonight
"That scoreboard is -not
even a glimmer of how spe-
cial a football team we can be.
Those turnovers in critical
moments just killed us. We
are two missed tackles away
in the first half from it being
a 0-0 halftime.


"I think we saw a great
team (Frostproof) that capi-
talized on our mistakes and
that didn't turn over the foot-
ball."
Thompson said he watched
game film and saw Frostproof
make eight turnovers in the
last two games.
"Our game plan was to
make them drive," he said,
"and when we had the ball, to
pound it, eat the clock and
score when we had opportu-
nities. We just flat out didn't
do it.
"We just made mistake
after mistake, two big missed
passes.
"I think tonight was a story
of missed opportunities for
us. We are hitting the weight
room this off season."
Thompson feels his team
can use this season and build
on its success.
"I think the future of Wild-
wood football is very, very
bright," he said. "Like I told
the kids, it's an honor and a
privilege to be here as the


head football coach. I think
we have an opportunity to
build something very special.
Hats offto the seniors for put-
ting us in this situation.
"The 10-2 record is the best
record since 1985. That's the
year they went to the state fi-
nals.
"It was a great season."
This was Dude Thompson's
first year as head football
coach and oh what a year it
was.
The 10-2 mark indicated a
team that accepted Thomp-
son's concepts and made
them work in a winning sea-
son.
The final defeat was the off
night that proved that Wild-
wood's football team had pro-
gressed and that Thompson
and his coaching staff made
his team accept their love,
their passion and confidence.
This was a very successful
team and one that Wildwood
High School and the Wild-
wood community can be es-
pecially proud of.


Sumter County Chamber of Commerce Connecting Business & Community


W HAT IN T Keeping theDoors Open in a Difficult Econmy

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME? CHAMBER LUNCHEXCHANGE


One of the first questions that a business must
ask when it considers joining a Chamber, of
Commerce is "What's In It For Me?"
As representatives of the Chamber, every
member of the team including the staff, the Board
of Directors and Chamber Ambassador's should
be ready to answer that question. "The Sumter
County Chamber of Commerce Membership rate
is extremely reasonable," said Debi Agnolucci,
membership representative, "but nothing is a good
value, if you don't receive something for your
investment. When we add a new benefit, it can be
difficult to ensure that all of our members are
aware of the addition. We've added several new
benefits this year and expect to be adding more as
our membership grows."
Our extensive list of benefits includes
networking opportunities, like the Chamber
Lunch Exchange and First Thursday's where
businesses have an opportunity to make new
contacts and expand their network. Special events
offer an opportunity to recognize businesses that
have made a significant contribution to our
community and social networking events offer a
chance to entertain clients and build relationships.
Tangible benefits include a business article
(new members only!). Advertising discounts are
available to all members in the Daily Commercial,
Sumter Express, Sumter Shopper and Sumter

Times. This year we have added a 10% discount
on auto insurance and personal umbrella coverage
as a part of a group discount in partnership with
Auto Owners and Frank Slaughter Insurance, a
5% discount for members for web design through
NetSource Technologies, Inc. a 15% discount on
rooms at the Waterfront Inn (some restrictions
may apply) and new chamber members can enjoy
a free case of paper from Ernie Morris with their
first fifty dollar order. "We encourage all
chamber members to offer member-to-member
discounts," said Ms. Agnolucci. Other specialized
advertising opportunities include the ability to
advertise in both our maps and our membership
directory, which are both popular community
resources. All members receive a listing in the
membership directory as a part of their
membership value.
Other chamber items, like Chamber
Connections and chamber emails, keep members
informed of activities and help the chamber fulfill
it's mission to connect business and community.
Our lobby is your lobby! We refer to chamber
members only and offer a "one-stop" location for
the Sumter County Community and visitors alike
to receive business information, tourism
information and relocation packets.
"We are really excited about our new website
and expect it to be operational before the end of
2008," said this year's Chamber President Andrea
Benda, The website will offer a community
calendar for member events, a job listing section
and a place for our member realtors to list both
commercial and residential property for sale. All
of our members will receive a link to their
website, thereby increasing their visibility on the
internet. The new website will include a special
section on tourism featuring area
accommodations. "Last year our chamber
website received almost 50,000 visits.
"Sometimes a potential member from one of
the larger businesses might say "I see why a small
company would join the chamber, but I can't see

the value for my organization," The Chamber
provides equal value for our larger businesses
including keeping them informed of issues within
the community, providing opportunities to
network and working on quality of life issues that
strengthen the community as a whole," said Lee
Ann Carr, Executive Director. "We've recently
added Federation Partnership with the US
Chamber to our menu of benefits. The Federation
Partnership will allow our business members to
enjoy membership in the US Chamber under the
umbrella of their local chamber membership.
This will give them access to information on
important business issues, being addressed at a
Federal level. The US Chamber has also designed
a "Vote for Business" site for the Sumter County
Chamber of Commerce that will integrate with
our new website. Businesses will be able to
contact their legislators directly from this site."
Chamber membership can also mean instant
credibility for a business, increasing chances of
success during difficult economic times.
According to a recent independent study
conducted by the Shapiro Group in Atlanta, 63%
of consumers are more likely to buy from
Chamber Members. "Those members that
participate actively in the chamber will definitely
receive more value from their membership but the
chamber is working actively for all of it's
members, even when they don't have time to
participate," said Past Chamber President Marilyn
Connell.
Carr reported that other benefits are currently
under development and will continue to be added
as the chamber grows. Membership investment is
based upon the number of full-time personnel that
a business employs. "The cost of membership for
a business of 1-5 employees breaks down to
approximately $12.50 per month," said Debi
Agnolucci, "We think that's a value in any
market."


Mandy Wettstein, co-owner of
Baker Wettstein Marketing & Public
Relations will be the speaker for the
December 10, 2008 Chamber Lunch-
eon. Mandy's goal is to help fellow
chamber members keep their doors
open in a tough economy. During
the Lunch Exchange, Mandy will
share the differences between
Advertising, Sales, PR and Market-
ing. She will be teaching our busi-
ness owners and managers to apply
those concepts and help them sur-
vive during these tough times.
Mandy hopes her fellow business
members will be able to utilize her
strategies to gain market share. "It's
time to be bold and actually grow
your business while the economy is
down," says Mandy. Businesses
sometimes make the big mistake of
cutting back on advertising and mar-
keting when the market is falling.
Mandy wants to explain why
that's a mistake and what you


should do instead of cutting back.
Mandy will show attendees ways to
get value for your media dollars.
"Clients are realizing the importance
of customer service and learning
new ways to promote their brand,"
said Ms Wettstein. Attendees will
receive information on writing a
creative marketing plan. There will
be times for questions and answers.
The Chamber Luncheon
Exchange is held on the second
Wednesday of every month at the
Wildwood Country Resort on Route
44 in Wildwood. The doors open at
11:15am for early registration and
networking. The program begins at
11:30. The member cost to attend is
$10.00 (non- members pay $15.00)
and includes lunch. Members who
wish to pre-pay for the year will be
invoiced at $8.00 for 12 months.
RSVP's are required by 11:30am on
Tuesday, December 9. Reserve your
space by calling 352-793-3099.


2010 CENSUS
The Chamber supports the US Census effort in Sumter County because
data collected may mean new funds and more jobs for our county: The 2010
census will provide the federal government with the information that it needs
to: Apportion seats in the House of Representatives; Draw state legislative
districts; Distribute more than 300 billion annually in federal, state, local
and tribal funds; Evaluate the success of community programs; Identify
populations that might be open and responsive to new services; Determine
sites for new businesses
The upcoming 2010 census also means additional jobs for our residents.
These temporary positions (generally lasting 5-10 weeks) can provide great
supplemental income. Positions include: Census Taker, Crew Leader, Crew
Leader Assistant and Recruiting Assistant.
A test is required and a sample is available for your review in the
chamber office. Brochures detailing positions and providing more
information about this opportunity are available in the Chamber office. Call
1-866-861-2010 to get additional information about testing times and
locations.

'Forever In Our Hearts' Pet Memorial Service planned


The public is invited to at-
tend the 2nd Annual "For-
ever In Our Hearts" Pet
Memorial Service. For all
who have had a special com-
panion that has passed
;away, we invite you to cele-
brate the time you shared to-
gether.
For so many of us, our pets
are family members whom
we love. We share our lives
together through the good
times and the bad. We care
for them, and in return, our
pets give us endless loyalty
and love. We carry pictures
of our animal companions
with us, we include them in
our social events, and family
outings. They share our
sofas and our beds. They


happily greet us every morn-
ing, eager to share a new day
with us. They are our com-
panions who offer uncondi-
tional love and emotional
support.
But sadly, our pets grow
old too soon, or they become
ill. Our roles change in our
pets' lives from playful com-
panions to caregivers. We
tend to their medical and
failing physical needs. When
once we played vigorous
games of fetch or tag, we
now sit quietly together, en-
joying the pleasure of each
other's presence. Our time
together becomes even
more precious, as we realize
how limited time now is.
So when that day comes,


and our beloved pet passes
away, our sorrow is over-
whelming. Our friend, who
had always been there to
greet us at the door, is no
longer there. We walk alone
now, without our companion
by our side. Our home be-
comes empty and lifeless.
Coping with grief is a per-
sonal experience, and there
is help available if you need
it. For all who have felt the
loss of a special companion,
we invite you to join us in
the second annual "Forever
In Our Hearts" pet memo-
rial service. A moving ser-
mon by the Reverend
Shirley Newman will be by
the Christmas trees and
poinsettias in the Memorial


Garden of Sumter Crema-
tion Services, in Bushnell.
The service is free and the
public is invited to attend.
You may want to bring a pic-
ture of your special pet that
has passed away. Ornaments
can be purchased to put on
the Christmas trees, person-
alized with your pet's


name. Proceeds from the
sale of the ornaments will be
donated to the Humane So-
ciety/SPCA of Sumter
County. Refreshments will
be served, and the public
can view the Memorial
Room where pet services
are held for family and
friends.


Celebrate the life you
shared with your pet with a
special prayer at the "For-
ever In Our Hearts" Pet Me-
morial Service. Mark your
calendar for December 7, at
3 p.m., at Sumter Cremation
Service, 680 E. Southland
Ave., Bushnell. For more in-
formation, call 352-568-0223.


Pet of the week


Mock trial set for Dec. 8


Teenagers in today's soci-
ety often have a miscon-
strued perception of the
roles and processes within
the judicial system.
Recognizing this fact,
Karen Cloud, an American
government teacher 'at
South Sumter High School,
holds an annual mock trial
in Which students partici-
pate and receive grades.
The mock trial is a means
of furthering student
knowledge and apprecia-
tion of the American judi-
cial system.
* The mock trial has taken
place since 1987, and is
highly anticipated by stu-
dents. They are presented
with a hypothetical situa-
tion and are asked to re-
view and prepare a case for
both the defense and prose-
cution.
They are assigned to a
broad spectrum of roles,
with cases ranging from at-
torneys to witnesses; the
only role students will not.
be asked to participate in is
that of the judge, which is
filled by County Judge Tom


Skidmore.
This year, Cloud's third-
and fourth-period classes
will participate in the mock
trial; the prosecution team
being third period and the
defense, fourth.
" Students will begin with
a prescript deposition and
police reports, with which
they must memorize and
base their case.
Recognizing that each
side will be given the same
script, students also care-
fully prepare for cross-ex-
amination so they may truly
play their part during the
case.
During the preparation,
students spend hours both
in and out of class tweaking
and perfecting arguments.
Examples of such prepara-
tion include student clerks
who are asked to prepare a
jury list; the bailiff, who
will discuss his or her role
with a deputy sheriff; the
clerk reporter, who will in-
terview a local court re-
porter and learn
throughout the trial the
tasks involved in recording
a trial.


Student lawyers are
asked to work with both the
local public defender and
state attorney's office so
they may have a near flaw-
less case with fine-tuned
opening and closing state-
ments.
Cloud even asks the stu-
dents who are members of
the student jury, to inter-
view an individual who has
served on a jury, so that no
student is left without a
chance to obtain valuable
information. As a whole,
the preparation will take
anywhere from two to three
weeks.
This year's mock trial
will be Monday, Dec. 8, in
the Bushnell County Court-
room. The trial is sched-
uled to begin promptly at 1
p.m.
If you have any questions
about the trial, you may
contact Karen Cloud at 793-
3131.
Parents and family mem-
bers are invited, as well as
all those who wish to wit-
ness the dedication and
hard work of these stu-
dents.


Adorable little Pachelli is 8 months old. He is very friendly and playful and gets
along well with other dogs. Pachelli 'enjoys playing ball, going for walks, and car
rides. He is neutered and current on his vaccinations. If you would like to adopt
this little cutie, call the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County at 352-793-9117 or
e-mail to humane@sum.net.
