Joseph William Owens


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Linden residents Janice
and Jimmy Owens are of-
fering a $10,000 reward for'
information leading to the
arrest and conviction of the
person responsible for
their son's death.
Joseph William Owens,
who was 28 years old and a
lifelong resident of the
area, was found dead in
May at Potts Preserve in
Citrus County, east of Inver-


ness.
A woman on horseback
discovered his shirtless
body on May 24, four days
after he was last seen, ac-
cording to Citrus County
Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Gail Tierney.
When his body was
found, it was in a state of
decomposition and his face
was not recognizable. The
medical examiner could
not determine the cause of
death or the manner of
death, which is unusual but
not unheard of, Tierney


said.
Police are considering
the death "suspicious" but
Janice said she believes he
was murdered - "ab-
solutely, without a doubt."
Joey Owens, the youngest
of the couple's four chil-
dren, lived with his parents
and traveled to West Palm
Beach during the week for
his job putting up screen
pool enclosures.
He went by Joey and his
other nickname, "Bull
Dog," according to his
mother, who last saw him


May 19.
"He was a good boy," she
said tearfully. She hopes
the reward, which they
have increased from $5,000
to $10,000, will help solve
the mystery of his death.
"That's all you can really
think about."
Janice and Jimmy Owens
are asking anyone with in-
formation to call them at
(352) 418-2026.
The case remains under
investigation by the Citrus
County Sheriff's Office.


Only Village vote

BoB REICHMAN
AND BRENDA LOCKLEAR

So, how did Sumter vot-
ers cast their November
election ballots concerning
the Reverse One Sumter
issue?
While the referendum
issue was defeated by the
majority of Sumter voters,
all precincts
outside of The
Villages voted in "We

Votes to maintain One

in all precincts of The Vil-

Ironically, the election re-

"The people outside of

BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer,,

After 18 years in voca-
tional education, Susan
Kelly moved into a posi-
tion as extension agent
for Sumter County. She
has already organized
several-events and
earned some special
recognition along the
way.
One of her most re-
cent successes was the
annual Lake Panasoff-
kee Celebration.
After officials pulled
together a multi-million
dollar cleanup of Lake
Panasoffkee, Kelly coor-
dinated an annual cele-
bration to mark the
event
The fun included live
music, guest speakers,
food and outdoors expe-
rierices, including a
fishing contest for kids.
It also gave kids a
chance to use their
artistic talents to teach
about the environment
Kelly was honored by

good at what they do."
He expressed concern
that the defeat will be seen
as an open door to try and
push charter government
into the county.
"Then people of our
county don't even need to
worry about voting."

KELLY

the Southwest Florida Water
Management District for hbr
efforts. She received a Part-
ners in Watershed Education
Award for putting together
the event.
"I'm thrilled," Kelly said of
the honor.
"I love this job," Kelly said
of being able to teach others
and serve in her position.
Kelly has implemented the
annualAgritunity event, draw-
ing a crowd of folks interested
in agriculture.
Kelly has coordinated a
local farmer's market and now
she's working towards creat-
ing a community garden.
The garden would be dedi-
cated to the memory of the late
John Stephens, an agriculture
teacher, former county com-
missioners and a leader of the
local community garden in
past years and an avid gar-
dener at home.
Stephens and his wife Ethel
were role models for numer-
ous Sumter County students.
Kelly is looking for a central
location and said each garden
space would be a 10-foot by 10-
foot space.
"People would become
members - that would allow
them to have a space for a sea-
son," she said. "You can grow
a lot in that space."
Locally, there's been a lot of
interest in gardening. She's
taught three classes on basic
gardening- this year. The
classes have been for the be-
ginner.
Kelly and her husband Jerry
live in Clermont and have two
children - Lauren, a senior at
South Lake High School and
Ryan, who resides in Orlando.


DOGS
continued from Page 1
Red Man, the older of the
two, worked at Desoto Cor-
rectional Institution before
coming to the sheriff's of-
fice, said his handler,
Deputy William Lamb.
Red Man is doing "excel-
lent" work so far, according
to him. Recently, the dog
tracked a suspect for the
first time as a sheriff's of-'
fice dog.
Red Man succeeded in
finding his suspect, who
was armed and wanted for
domestic assault, in a short
amount of time.
As for the younger dog,
which started with the
sheriff's office one month
ago, his handler Deputy
Eric Burkes said training is
coming along nicely. "When
we got him, he wasn't leash
broke or anything," he said.
The dogs -are being trained
every week and Burkes is
working on refining Al-
bert's sniffing skills.
"He's being trained for


scent discrimination,"
Burkes said, which means
the dog will be able to pick
and follow a particular
scent, rather than following
the freshest scent.
"They're a much more so-
cial animal than the shep-
herd," said the sheriff's
chief deputy, Jack Jordan.
As the friendlier breed,
the bloodhounds will likely
take part in the sheriff's of-
fice public relations activi-
ties.
"We're going to start tak-
ing them to schools, proba-
bly elementary schools,"
Burkes said. The visits will
benefit the dogs by allowing
them to get used to differ-
ent people, sights, and
sounds.
The sheriff's office ac-
quired the dogs to use in
cases where German shep-
herds cannot be.
"We said, 'We really don't
have an animal that can be
used for cold tracks,"' Jor-
dan said, describing tracks
that are several hours old.
If, for example, the sher-
iff's office investigates a
burglary at 7 a.m. that hap-
pened seven to eight hours


earlier, tracking won't be a
problem for a bloodhound.
The dogs are also ideal for
use in missing persons
cases.
Another benefit to the
friendly bloodhound: they
will respond to different
handlers. With a German
shepherd, the handler is
committed to the dog for
five or six years, according
to Jordan, but bloodhounds
are different. If the handler
cannot be there when the
dog needs to track, some-
one else can work with the
dog.
"It won't bother a blood-
hound. You can't do that
with a German Shepherd,"
Jordan said.
The younger dog was do-
nated to the sheriff's office
by the Jimmy Ryce Center
for Victims of Predatory
Abduction, an organization
formed in honor of 9-year-
old Jimmy Ryce, who was
kidnapped from his school
bus stop, raped, and mur-
dered. The center provides
free bloodhounds for law
enforcement agencies to as-
sist with finding abducted
and'lost children.

Sex offender arrested


A Pensacola man was ar-
rested Dec. 3 in Lake Panasof-
fkee for failure to register as a
sex offender.
Darryl Steven Brannen, 49,
was arrested after an anony-
mous tip came in to the sher-
iff's office about his
whereabouts, according to the
arrest affidavit.
Acting on the tip, a sheriff's


office detective met up with
Brannen at Turtleback RV Re-
sort at about 2:30 in the after-
noon.
Brannen, whose driver's li-
cense showed an Escambia
County address, told the de-
tective that he had been in the
area for four days, according
to the affidavit.
The suspect's roommate


confirmed that Brannen had
been staying with him for that
amount of time, and Brannen
was arrested for failure to reg-
ister as a sex offender and de-
tained at the Sumter County
Detention Center.
State law requires sex of-
fenders to register a new or
temporary address within 48
hours of moving.

Students arrested in separate bomb threats


Two 13-year-old South
Sumter Middle School stu-
dents were arrested in sepa-
rate incidents involving bomb
threats last week.
In one, a 13-year-old boy al-
legedly made a bomb threat
at the school Nov. 25.
According to police, he left
a note inside the boys' rest-
room indicating a bomb
would go off at 1:03 p.m. that
day. The note had the boy's
initials at the bottom.
Another student found the
note and reported it to school


staff. Students waited in the
gymnasium while the school
was locked down and law en-
forcement officers searched
the school.
School was closed for
Thanksgiving from Nov. 26
and through the weekend.
The school resource officer
continued an investigation on
Dec. 1, when school started
again, and gained informa-
tion linking the student to the
threat, sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers said.
"He was called up to the of-


fice and the staff and re-
source officers interviewed
him and he did admit being
the person responsible for
the threat," according to
Caruthers.
The student described the
note in detail, "which was in-
formation that we had not
given out to anybody," he
said.
The student was sus-
penrded and held at a juvenile
detention facility in Ocala.
A day earlier, on Nov. 24, a
13-year-old female student al-


legedly made a bomb threat,
writing on the wall of the
girls' bathroom "today there
will be a bomb."
"The school was evacuated
and searched with negative
results," according to the ar-
rest affidavit.
On Dec. 3, the school's vice
principal told the school re-
source officer that a student
had confessed to making the
threat. The student then
showed the deputy where
she'd written the threat and
was subsequently arrested.

Make an early resolution to

create less holiday waste

DEP urges Floridians to rethink habits
during the holidays and year-round

Now that the holiday season has officially begun, the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection (DEP) is encouraging citizens to be
on the lookout for ways to avoid extra holiday waste and help conserve
Florida's natural resources by recycling and reusing a variety of prod-
ucts.
"Celebrating the holidays is about the spirit of giving and spending
time with loved ones, but we should also avoid filling landfills with un-
necessary trash," said Mary Jean Yon, DEP's Director of Waste Manage-
ment "Reducing, reusing and recycling can prevent pollution and
protect the environment"
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Americans
throw away 25 percent more trash between Thanksgiving and the New
Year than during any other time of the year. This accounts for the cre-
ation of almost 25 million tons of additional waste during the holiday
season.
Simple things that can be done to reduce waste during the holidays:
* When shopping, bring your own reusable tote bag instead of accept-
ing a separate plastic or paper bag for each purchase.
* Buy holiday cards made from recycled paper or make your own cre-
ative cards on recycled paper.
0 Reuse packing cartons and shipping materials.
* Purchase LED Christmas lights for energy efficiency in your holiday
display.
* Put all Qf your lights on timers for energy savings and peace of mind
while you're away.
* Use tins you've been saving for gift boxes.
* Recycle unwanted and duplicated gifts by promptly exchanging
them or giving them to a local charity.
* Gifts of new appliances and clothes will often replace items that can
still be used. Collect these items and donate them to local charity
groups.
* Purchase a Christmas tree that can be mulched or planted.
M Compost your kitchen scraps from holiday dinners and parties.
* Give personal services such as massages, gym memberships, mani-
cures, or haircuts as a gift instead of a present that could eventually end
up in the trash.
* Don't wrap oversized gifts and reduce wrapping paper waste. Hide
them and give the recipient clues. Make the search a treasure hunt
* Make the wrapping a useful part of the gift; put cookies in a flower
pot or hide jewelry in a new pair of gloves or socks.
* Purchase gifts that are durable or that can be used or recycled or
made with recycled products.
* Use cloth napkins, silverware, glass drinking cups and ceramic cof-
fee mugs and reusable plates rather than disposable plastic, Styrofoam
or paper at holiday dinners and parties.
* Rent party furnishings rather than buying things you will only use
once a year. This reduces clutter at your home and also produces less
waste for the environment.
*'Buy and use rechargeable batteries.
In February 2009, the television broadcast signal will change to a digi-
tal format which some older televisions will not be able to receive. If you
plan to purchase a new TV during the holidays for your family, it's im-
portant to note that unwanted electronics should be recycled in order to
recover and reuse the product itself or materials such as copper, steel,
and glass that the product contains. For more information, visit:
www.dep.state.fl.us/Waste/categories/electr6onics/defaulthtm.
To increase recycling throughout Florida, this summer Governor
Charlie Crist signed the Energy, Climate Change, and Economic Security
Act of 2008 into law which establishes a new statewide recycling goal of
75 percent to be achieved by 2020. Within the law, DEP is directed to de-
velop a program to achieve this goal and submit it to the Florida Legisla-
ture for consideration by January 1, 2010. For more information on the
new statewide recycling goal of 75 percent, and to share your comments
on ways to achieve this goal and view comments from others on our web-
based forum, visit www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/recyclinggoal75/.'

Make water conservation a holiday tradition af


ROBYN FELIX
Special to the Times

With the holiday season upon us,
the Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District is asking residents
to make water conservation a new
tradition.
"This holiday season it is espe-
cially important to conserve water
because the District is still experi-
encing impacts from two years of
drought and we are now in the dry
season," said Robyn Felix, the Dis-
trict's media relations manager. "We
can all make a difference by incor-
porating a few simple tips into our
routines."
During the holidays, water plays a
role in everything from food prepa-
ration' to the clean-up process. Ap-
pliances and fixtures such as
dishwashers, clothes washers, show-
ers and toilets are also used more
often,
However, there are ways to save
water while celebrating the holidays
without compromising convenience
and comfort.
Here are six easy ways to incor-
porate water conservation into your
holiday preparations and celebra-
tions:


* Defrost frozen foods in the re-
frigerator or the microwave instead
of running hot water over them.
*. Rinse vegetables and fruits in a
sink or pan filled with water instead
of under running water. This water
can then be reused to water house-
plants. A running faucet can use up
to 3 gallons per minute.
* When washing dishes by hand,
fill one sink or basin with soapy
water and fill the rinsing sink one-
third to one-half full. Avoid letting
the water run continuously in the
rinsing sink.
* Select the proper size pans for,
cooking. Large pans require more
cooking water than may be neces-
sary.
* Scrape food scraps into the
garbage can or a composting bin,
rather than rinsing them into the
sink's garbage disposal. A garbage
disposal uses up to 4 gallons of
water per minute.
* Run your dishwasher only when
you have a full load. Dishwashers
use between 7 and 12 gallons per
load.
For more water conservation tips,
information about the drought and
the current water restrictions,
please visit the District's web site at
WaterMatters.org/drought.

Remember when fast food
restaurants started provid-
ing drive-through service?
Seems to me, the system
worked pretty well. You drove up
to the menu board and spoke
your order into the microphone.
You then drove up to the window,
paid, and received your order. All
in all, it seemed like a pretty con-
venient service that worked quite
well.
So, why am I writing in the past
tense? Well, it sure seems to me
that things at the good old drive-
through have changed - and not
for the better.
I don't know when it happened.
But, given my recent experiences,
it definitely has happened.
The problem: Seems like you're
very lucky if you end up driving
away with what you actually or-


dered.
. Take today. I ordered a sand-
wich that came with a drink and
French fries. Now, perhaps the
clerk was just concerned about
-my health and decided that I
should skip the fries, but, at the
very least, she could have said
that
Instead, after driving away
without looking inside the bag
(and I should know better by
now), I discovered that my fries
were missing. Paid for, mind you,
but nonetheless, missing.
Unfortunately, as has happened
to me on numerous occasions, I
was already miles away from the
restaurant and unwilling to turn
around and go back. I only no-
ticed the mistake when I dug into
the bag to sample a fry.
Not only did I not want to drive
back, I also didn't want to again
wait in line to announce the mis-
take.
So I proceeded on my way,
grumbling under my breath that
once again my order wasn't right
Something else bugs me about
this. I've noticed that the mistake
is never made in my favor. I never
get an extra order of fries or two


hamburgers instead of one.
Sometimes it all seems a bit too
suspicious. I'm starting to wonder
if this just isn't some sneaky way
for restaurants to save money
during a slowing economy. Maybe
they're actually training their em-
ployees to shortchange us. Maybe
they get bonuses for it.
Well, I think a new law needs to
be enacted.
Our legislators need to require
fast food restaurants to put large
warning signs near their drive-up
windows perhaps in flashing
neon:
Something like: "Warning,
please check your order before
you drive away. It is very likely
that something is missing."
For some reason, I don't re-
member this happening as often
as it has in recent years. Maybe
I'm just getting older and crab-
bier - or maybe, just maybe,
clerks just don't care as much as
they used to.
It sure seems that way - espe-
cially after you give the clerk a
specific and clearly stated order
only to have them ask you to re-
peat it again - but that's a whole
different story.

Caruthers ready to be mayor


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Evelyn "Eve" Caruthers is
ready to get to work
Caruthers, 54, was elected
as the city of Coleman's new
mayor last Tuesday, Dec. 2.
She beat longtime, mayor
Lonnie Evans by 41 percent-
age points.
Evans, 69, could not be
reached for comment. He has
served as mayor since 1997
and prior to being elected
mayor, he served on the city
council since 1971.
Out of the 204 ballots cast,
144 votes were in favor of
Caruthers, . compared to
Evans's 60 votes. About 39 per-
cent of the city's 526 registered
voters turned out to vote in
this year's election.
Caruthers said she believes
residents voted for her be-
cause they wanted change and
"they want to make sure we're
going forward and not back-
ward."
She hasn't always been in-
terested in running for public
office, and said she made the
decision to run because she
wanted to help the city shed its

Principal, Mrs. Jensen getting splashed by Shelby Hankins



Jumping to save lives


Cardiovascular disease
ranks as the number two cause
of death for children under the
age of 15.
Students at Webster Ele-
mentary discussed heart dis-
ease and how to avoid
contracting this deadly illness.
Students participated in the
"Jump Rope For Heart" pro-
gram to raise money and bring
aware to this devastating dis-
ease. According to the
fundraiser coordinator, Kay


Ms. Richards getting r
slimed by Geovanni Macia
and Principal, Mrs. Good-
son, getting slimed by
Alexandria McGough.


VandeMark, "Our school goal
was $1,000 and we surpassed
our goal and collected a total
of $1500.63." Alexandri Mc-
Gough was presented a gold
medal for raising the most
money, $75. Ms. McMullen's
fourth grade class won the
banner for raising the most
money as a class. To encour-
age students to raise as much
money as they could, special
activities were scheduled such
as: the office staff dressed as


Mary Ann W.


Southern belles, the cafeteria
ladies wore weird hair and
passed out ice cream, the PE.
staff dressed as hippies, and
teachers were to dress in the
pajamas. However, the high-
light of the day was the Splash
Bash of our teachers and the
sliming of Mrs. Goodson and
Ms. Richards.
Fun was had by all and, most
importantly, our community
supported the American Heart
Association.

"image problem."
"I felt like a citizen needed
to get involved," she said.
"Somebody needed to step up
to the plate."
Caruthers wants Coleman to
be a bedroom community
that's friendly and inviting to
visitors and she wants to im-
prove its appearance.
For years, the city has been
a known speed trap, according
to her, and she sees blue flash-
ing lights nightly on the street
by her house.
It's "embarrassing" and
wants to improve the police
force in the city and see more
warnings issued, Caruthers
said.
Another one of her goals is
to reduce the amount resi-
dents are paying for water.
On election night, Caruthers
waited for the votes to be
counted at the community cen-
ter on election night.
"It was kind of nerve rack-
ing," she said. "As soon as I
closed my office I went
straight to the community cen-
ter and sat and waited while
they counted each vote."
Besides being the new
mayor of Coleman, Caruthers,
who is a nurse practitioner,


owns Total Lifestyle Change
(TLC) Weight Loss Center, a
general practice and weight
loss facility on Dixie Avenue in
Leesburg. She works there
full-time and also owns First
Attempt Farm in Sumterville,
with her husband and Cole-
man businessman Bobby
Caruthers. She has lived in
Coleman for about 10 years.
City council members Virgie
Everett and Cleveland
Williams, Jr., whose terms ex-
pire this year, were not op-
posed in this election.
In the city of Wildwood elec-
tion the same night, a referen-
dum passed with 68 percent of
the votes.
The referendum, which al-
lows property tax exemptions
for new businesses and the ex-
pansion of existing businesses,
was approved in 1999 but ex-
pires in 2009.
The city had a three percent
voter turnout; of Wildwood's
2,862 voters, only 86 ballots
were cast
The two Wildwood city com-
missioners up for re-election
this year, Ronald Allen and
Robbie Strickland, were not
opposed.

"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.

Sergeant First Class William "Billy" Graham, Jr., of Coleman (back, center), is
shown standing with three Iraqi interpreters. Graham was awarded the Bronze
Star Medal for his work at Camp Bucca in Iraq.


Graham returns from Iraq


AMANDA MIMS
Staff Writer

Billy Graham Jr. recently returned
from his third tour of duty in Iraq.
This time, something followed him
home: a Bronze Star Medal.
The honor was awarded for the Na-
tional Guardsman's work at the Camp
Bucca prison camp - a theater intern-
ment facility in the military's terms -
where he served as a liaison officer. Gra-
ham, a 39-year-old Wildwood High School
alumnus now living back in Coleman,


worked with, and resolved differences
between, the Iraqi correctional officers
and the Americans stationed there.
The sergeant first class credits his suc-
cess at Camp Bucca with his military
training and his upbringing. He said the
most important thing was "treating every-
one with a little bit of respect and dignity.
"I always wanted to make sure my
troops were taken care of before myself.
It was just the way I was brought up."
He is also quick to recognize the serv-

Sumter County Sheriff representative McGruff was in control during the annual
Lake Panasoffkee Christmas Parade. He and friends (including Sheriff Bill Farmer
and Farmer's wife Linda) took part in the event, which took place Saturday, Dec. 6
along County Road 470. While a few drizzles in the morning started the day, things
were dry by parade time and the event drew a crowd.

Humane Society/SPCA sets groundbreaking


The Humane
Society/SPCA of Sumter
County is proud to announce
the next phase of its capital
campaign, the construction
of its Equine/Livestock Barn
with the official ground
breaking ceremony on Fri-
day, Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. The
event will take place at their
five acre site, 994 C.R. 529A,
just off of C.R. 470 in Lake
Panasoffkee.
All members of the com-
munity are welcome to at-
tend as Cullison-Wright
Construction Corp. of Ocala
will begin its initial work to
utilize a modular inter-
S.: , '. ,


changeable system. This sys-
tem design will allow the
HS/SPCA to modify anything
for future growth without
forcing the site to be demol-
ished or wasting material
resources.
"The Board of Directors
so greatly appreciated the
contributions by one of our
barn's major donors in mak-
ing this project possible.
To recognize his generos-
ity, we would shall be nam-
ing the barn 'The House
That Shorty Built' in honor
of his beloved little goat
Shorty, who will be in atten-
dance at the groundbreak-


ing too!" noted Linda
Graves, Chairman of the
Board.
The HS/SPCA will be true
to its commitment of being
as "Green" as possible, by
constructing the
Equine/Livestock Barn with
green features such as recy-
cled 'galvalum' metal roof-
ing, a material which is
higher in reflectivity than
any painted colors to deflect
heat and the walls which
will be derived from recy-
cled plastic slats resembling
wood.
If you are interested in be-
coming part of Sumter,


County history and wish to
contribute to the capital
campaign of Florida's First
"Green" Animal Shelter,
contact the Humane Soci-
ety/SPCA of Sumter County
at www.hsspca.org, 352-793-
9117, humane@sum.net or
at PO Box 67, Lake Panasof-
fkee, FL 33538. More infor-
mation on "going green" is
available at the U.S. Green
Building Council website
www.usgbc.org.
Light refreshments will be
served at the adjacent
HS/SPCA Library/Office on
site after the groundbreak-
ing ceremony.

South Sumter falls short of upset 54-42


LARRY BUGG
Times Corresponderi,

The Lecanto High girls
basketball team didn't ex-
pect a real workout Friday
when they walked into the
South Sumter High gym.
The Panthers were flying
high on a 7-0 won-loss
record roll and weren't ex-
pecting a real battle until
they played Ocala West Port.
South Sumter (3-4 overall,
2-3 in district) made the Pan-
thers work for their 54-42
victory.
"They (South Sumter)
played an exceptionally
good game," said Lecanto
coach Jack Hall. "They
played us probably harder
than any other team we have
played this year. He (South
Sumter coach Gary Russo)
has done a tremendous job
with them.
"I'm really proud of our
girls. We probably played
better as a team than we
have in any other game. We
got a lot of people on the
board. We had some really
good motion."
Lecanto has scored over
70 points this year but they
weren't going to get a run-
ning clock Friday night.


Lecanto took a 14-9 first
quarter lead with Bri Jack-
son hitting five points for
Lecanto and Quasia Harri-
son leading the Raiders with
three points.
In the second quarter,
South Sumter scored five
straight points and tied the
Citrus County team 14-14.
The score was still tied at
16-16 when Lecanto hit
seven straight points to take
a 23-16 lead.
Lecanto had a 28-23
hafltime lead. Lexy Angelo
led the Panthers with four
points as Lecanto tied South
Sumter 14-14 in the period.
Desiree Mitchell led the
Raiders with six points.
Sophomore guard Tasha
Kenderson had six re-
bounds.
Lecanto outscored South
Sumter 14-10 in the third pe-
riod. Angelo and Marie Tay-
lor led the Panthers with
five points apiece. Kender-
son scored six points and
grabbed three rebounds for
the Sumter County team.
Unfortunately, Kenderson
injured her shoulder and
had to leave the game in the
fourth period.
Lecanto outpointed South
Sumter 12-9 in the final
quarter. Harrison had four


points to lead South Sumter
while Marie Taylor had four
points.
Harrison led South
Sumter with 11 points and
added seven rebounds and a
steal. Kenderson finished
with 10 points and 11 re-
bounds. Mitchell had 10
points, six rebounds and a
steal.
Taylor led Lecanto with 15
points. Jackson and Angelo
both had 13 points. Angelo
had seven rebounds, four
steals and a blocked shot.
Jackson had four steals and
three rebounds.
The Lecanto fullcourt
press forced South Sumter
into 16 turnovers but the
Raiders were hitting some
high percentage shots and
their defense held the Pan-
thers down.
"We did some good things
and did some bad things,"
said Russo. "We just have to
get better. It really hurt us in
the final four minutes losing
Tasha, our leading scorer.
She dislocated her shoulder.
We did okay. I thought the
other kids stepped up. I
thought Desiree played re-
ally well with an injured
back. We have to take this,
build on it and keep getting
better."

Wildwood hoop girls nip Citrus 46-43


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Wildwood High girls bas-
ketball coach Paula Lindsey
had this very weary smile
Thursday night.
Her Wildcat team man-
aged a 46-43 victory over Cit-
rus High (2-4) at the Citrus
High gym but the coach had
to sweat this one out.
The Wildwood girls made
23 turnovers but managed to
outscore their hostesses 18-
12 in the fourth quarter.
Rhonisha Mitchell hit a
lay-up with 23 seconds left to
give Wildwood a 45-43 lead.
Both teams would make
turnovers in the final sec-
onds.
Citrus made 22 turnovers
as both teams played tough
defense.
Fortunately for Wildwood,
the Canes missed a number
of lay-ups while Wildwood
made most of their high per-
centage shots.


Mitchell, a junior guard,
led all scorers with 13
points. She also grabbed five
rebounds. Nikarre Sesler
had eight points and four re-
bounds.
Citrus High's McKenzie
Brisson led the Canes with
11 points. Shannon Candi-
leri and Vanessa Hill both
scored nine points for Cit-
rus.
Wildwood led 10-9 after
the first quarter. Ashley
Fluitt had three points for
the Wildcats.
Citrus took a 23-18 half-
time lead with Devon Miller
hitting a buzzer-beating
three-point goal.
Citrus then took a 29-27
lead in the third quarter.
The victory enabled Wild-
wood to even its record at 3-
3.
Lindsey's team won but
the coach may have lost
some follicles in the process.
"I think I lost some hair
tonight," said Lindsey.
The Wildcats were much


shorter than their oppo-
nents but made up for that
disadvantage with hustle
and quickness.
"I think the effort and the
heart they put into it were
there," the coach said. "I
think we could have hit a lot
more shots but the heart and
effort were there. They
came off a tough game last
night. I think they bounced
back and did a good job."
It wasn't a pretty sight but
Lindsey didn't have a prob-
lem taking the victory.
"I think morally, it was a
good game," she said. "We
did some things that we
have been struggling with.
They really worked on it
tonight."
If Wildwood's hoop girls
can show that sort of hustle
and heart in every game this
season, the Wildcats could
be a very successful.
Hopefully, Lindsey won't
need a wig by the end of the
season.

Don't forget about pets during the holidays

Humane
Society


People everywhere are
making preparations for the
upcoming holidays.
Tree trimmings, holiday
decorations, presents, and
delicious treats are many of
the season's delights. Get-
ting ready for visits from
family and friends, we can
get preoccupied with holi-
day plans.
Let's not forget our four-
legged furry family mem-
bers during this hustling and
bustling time. It is important
to make every attempt to
keep on a regular schedule
so that Fluffy and Fido ex-
perience a minimal amount
of stress. Keep feeding times
the same and plan time for
daily exercise and playtime
with your pet.;
Holidays abound with po-
tential hazardous situations.
Take precautions to elimi-
nate.any dangers.
Before guests come to
visit, determine if your pet
would enjoy being part of
the festivities or feel more
comfortable staying in a
quiet room. If your pet joins


in on the fun, take every pre-
caution when the front door
opens to avoid escapes.
Many holiday foods are
toxic and can make your pet
ill or even cause death.
Keep, candies, chocolates,
alcoholic beverages, and
turkey, fish, and chicken
bones away from furry fam-
ily members.
Keeping your dog or cat
on their regular diet will
, prevent upset tummies, di-
arrhea, constipation, and
more serious illnesses.
Christmas trees, glass or-
naments, tinsel, electrical
cords, ribbons, foil wrap are
all items that can fascinate
young puppies and kittens,
and cause serious injuries.
Several holiday plants are
poisonous, and should be
kept away from pets. Holly,
poinsettias, mistletoe, and
Christmas rose are just a
few. You can go on the Inter-
net to learn which plants are
poisonous and should be
avoided.
Stay vigilant and keep all
family members safe, and a
happy holiday can be en-
joyed by all.
This time of year, as we
celebrate the holidays, keep
in your minds and hearts the
many homeless animals.
Making a donation to the
Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County (P.O. Box 67,
Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538)

GRAHAM

ice of other medal recipi-
ents and veterans in this
area. "You have a lot of good
folks here that have served,"
he said.
Graham was first de-
ployed to Iraq during the
Gulf War in the early 90s. He
believes the U.S. presence
there has made a positive
impact on the country and is
disappointed with the way
the war is portrayed in the
media.
"I can honestly tell you it's
so much better," he said.
"Right now there are so
many good things going on."
For instance, military doc-
tors regularly travel out in
convoys to Iraqi towns and
treat the residents.
"Nowadays it's so much
easier to see the work that's
being done. It's a more
friendly environment," he
said.
"I would say you're safer
there than you are in Or-
lando now. The changes that
have been going on ... are
unbelievable."
Graham is also grateful
for the support he and oth-
ers received from the peo-
ple living back home.
While he was in Iraq, he
benefited from the Opera-
tion Shoebox organization
in Belleview, which sent
troops various items from
coffee to golf clubs. He said
he was shocked when he


found out the people around
him were receiving things
from Belleview, Florida,
right around the corner
from his hometown.
"I said, 'Belleview? You're
kidding me."'
Since returning home,
Graham has paid a visit to
the Operation Shoebox vol-
unteers and presented them
with a flag to show his ap-
preciation.
"I'm telling you, it's unbe-
lievable."
He visited about 200 vol-
unteers in The Villages
while they put 600 packages
together. "I was blown
away," he said. "I was
amazed.
"They've started doing the
Christmas stuff already. I
can tell you firsthand, some
of the guys that were in my
group ... had nobody back
here. (The volunteers) are
doing a heck of a job."
Graham would rather talk
about what other people are
doing than about him re-
ceiving a Bronze Star.
He said, "I just played a
small part in something that
was huge. I'm just a grain of
sand that's out there in the
desert. I'm glad I was part of
it"
He also wants the people
here to remember the serv-
ice members who are still
overseas.
"Don't forget about the
boys that are still there, and
the girls. They still need our
support," he said.
"If you can offer a little
prayer at night or at church,
just keep them in your
prayers."

for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The re-
quest must be filed (received by the clerk) In the Office
of General Counsel before the end of the time period
for filing a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled
to written notice under Section 120,60(3), Florida Stat-
utes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication
of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Seciton
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who
has asked the Department for notice of agency action
may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of
such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition
within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall consti-
tute a waiver of that person's right to request an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent
intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding of-
ficer upon the filing of a motion In compliance with
Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which
the Department's action is based must contain the fol-
lowing Information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of
each petitioner; the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner's representative, if any; the
Department permit Identification number and the
county in which the subject matter or activity Is lo-,
cated;
(b) A statement of how and when each pettioner re-
ceived notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial
Interests ae affected by the Department action;


(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact.
If there are none, the petition must so Indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the ptitioner contends
warrant reversal or modification of the Department ac-
tion;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged,
as well as the rules and statutes which entitle the peti-
tioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants
the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process is
designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of
a petition means that the Department's final action
may be different from the position taken by it in this no-
tice, Persons whose substantial interests will be affected
by any such final decision of the Department have the
right to petition to become a party to the proceeding,
In, accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation under Section 120.573. Florida Statutes, Is
not available for this proceeding.
