County commissioners

day, Jan. 13 of a resolution to
expand the functional ,
boundaries of the county

NJROTC has annual inspection


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

South Sumter High
School NJROTC members
underwent inspection last
month, under the direction
of Captain Al Prescott, USN
(Ret.).
Students are inspected in
a number of different areas
for their performance as
junior ROTC members in-
cluding uniform condition
and work completion.
The entire unit is exam-
ined as an operation, in-
cluding how well staff works
together.
The latest inspection took
place Wednesday, Dec. 10, at
the high school, in the unit
classroom and on the foot-
ball field.
Inspectors even do a com-
parison of how supplies are
stocked and organized, how
things would be stowed and
organized aboard a subma-
rine or ship.
They look at how secure
weapons are and what the
unit plan for the day is.
Prescott spent several
hours with the unit, finish-
ing up around 1 p.m. that
day.
One of the key focuses of
the NJROTC is leadership,
which was also the main
focal point for the day
The current unit includes
a number of students with a
4.0 grade-point average and
students who are hoping for
a career in the military.


BRENDA LOCKLEAR/ Sumter County Times
South Sumter High School NJROTC members underwent their Annual Military In-
spection earlier this month. The inspection includes everything from uniform con-
dition and conversations with cadets and officers, to condition of supplies and the
day's work plan.The students in the photo are shown assisting Captain Al Prescott,
USN (retired). The students are (left to right) Cadet Lt. D.J. Nobles, Cadet Stephanie

did not find Benoit or the
truck that was parked there
when the man was hit How-
ever, they did find several
personal items, including a

homicide due to his actions
the day of the crash which
included speeding, tailgat-

in the death of Joyce Bul-

Benoit was found at one of
the addresses, an apartment
at Club Wildwood on Huey

firmed to a sheriff's office
sergeant that he was the one
who'd been hit by the train.
Benoit showed the officer
his "swelled and red" left
arm and said the train hit it

According to FHP:
The crash happened just
before 6 p.m. Aug. 5, as Bul-
lock drove north on State
Road 471 near County Road
476. Isaacs, heading south in
a 2005 Jeep Liberty, at-
tempted to pass another car
and entered the path of Bul-
lock's vehicle, an unmarked
police car.
Bullock swerved right to-
ward the east shoulder in an
attempt to avoid the crash;
Isaacs steered left, applied
his brakes, and skidded to-
ward the east shoulder,
where the front of Isaac's
car hit the front of Bullock's.
Isaacs's vehicle spun and


being hit, and he responded
that "he was dazed and fig-
ured it was a bad day to go
fishing so he came here to
his wife," according to the
report.
The officer also suggested
Benoit see a doctor about
his arm.
Caruthers said the out-
come is nearly always tragic
when the sheriff's office gets
a call like this one.
"It was a happy ending to
find the guy, to find that he
was OK other than getting
clipped," he said. "He was
very fortunate that he was
able to dodge the train."


"It's a walk for health, to
get in better shape," she
said.
Friday was the kickoffday
for the program, which offi-
cially started Monday.
Each school and depart-
ment is organizing its own
walking schedule, but walk-
ers are getting together sev-
eral times per week for 12
weeks.
Stimpson said she's been
walking on her own for a few
years, but said the program
is beneficial because it gives
walkers someone to talk to
instead of going it alone.
Her group plans to wlk
five times around the 4p-
proximately one-mile track
at the sports complex.
Other groups all around
the county had their kickoff
walks on Friday. They in-
cluded .Wildwood High
School with 22 walkers,
Lake Panasoffkee Elemen-
tary School with 40 walkers,
South Sumter High School
with 47 participants, Bush-
nell Elementary School with
41 participants, and the dis-
trict office with 38 partici-
pants.

From King to Obama: growth
Next week, many Sumter County residents will partici-
pate in community programs in both Wildwood and
Royal honoring the memory and dreams of Martin
Luther King Jr.
The younger participants aren't old enough to remember
the turbulent times of the Civil Rights movement in the
United States. They are too young to remember the arrest of
Rosa Parks or to personally hear the speeches of Martin
Luther King. They know only of the struggle for equal rights
through the. pages of history books and through stories told
by their elders.
The older walkers will remember the discrimination faced
by blacks when seeking an education, a job or simply getting
a drink of water from a public water fountain. Many of them
will remember the first time blacks were allowed to vote, or
the integration of our schools.
King's efforts helped pave the way for blacks to live and
serve to their fullest potential.
Last Nov. 5, voters selected Barack Obama as president of
the United States. On Tuesday, Jan. 20, the president-elect
will take the oath of office as the 44th president of the
United States.
Tuesday marks his first official day of service to the Ameri-
can people as president.
When King stood up to lead his people in the early '60s, it
was during a time of strong prejudice. A feeling of despair
and frustration must have gone through the veins of each
and every black citizen during that time.
King's historic "I-have-a-dream" speech rings a clear mes-
sage today with the election of Obama.
Obama's election truly launches a new era for America. He
becomes president during a time when many Americans feel

Letters to the editor


A holiday thanks
Well, once again Santa took the
time to come all the way from the
North Pole to visit the children in
Bushnell, Florida on Dec. 20. Four
hundred bags of candy and toys
were given out by Santa's helpers
along with hot chocolate and fruit
punch and big cookies. All this was
made possible by many people, in-
cluding the local state probation of-
fice whose staff members
coordinated, bought and packaged
the toys and candy.
This year was dedicated to the'
memory of Probation Officer Cindy
Jackson, who spent many years in
charge of the event at the South
Sumter High School Christmas
Tree. Cindy passed away in August
and left a big gap in the organiza-.
tion of "The Tree Project" as well
as in our hearts. With Cindy's past
examples, we set out to continue
the tradition in hopes of another
successful year. It could not have
been done without the financial
help of the following sponsors,
both businesses and friends, to all
of whom we are very grateful. We
know times are tough and strained
for many of us and that makes us
even more thankful for those who
blessed us with donations.
Our special thanks go out to the
South Sumter High School Cheer-
leaders, Julian Harrison, Esq.,
Bushnell Trailer Court, Bob
Woodard, Porter's Jewelers, Sher-
iff Bill and Linda Farmer, Bushnell
Paint and Body, The City of Bush-
nell, Evans Hardware, Winnie Mer-
ritt, Purcell Funeral Home, Inc.,
Sumter Realty, Inc., James Wade,
III, PA, Ernie Morris Enterprises,
Inc., Doug and Patty Rickles, Beef
0' Brady's, Karen and Lee Kraus,
Wells of Salvation Church, Green-
view Properties, Bullfrogs and But-
terflies Daycare and Preschool,
James Kry Insurance, Kevin and
Cathy Webb, Pete Eveleth, Gayle
and Tom Burry, James and Theresa
Fussell, Sumter Correctional Insti-
tute, FSU Booster Club, Wal-Mart
and Winn-Dixie. Please stop in and
let our sponsors know you enjoyed
the "Tree." We truly appreciate
your continued contributions.
Further, a big thank you to the
City of Bushnell staff who set up
the Christmas scene and their gen-
erous donation. Another great help
came from Officer Linda Winston
from Sumter CI who arranged for
additional toys for the kids.
Finally, thank you Santa for
spending so much time talking and
listening to each child. (We hope
your back feels better.)
Thank you all for making our
year another success, Happy Holi-
days to you!

Challenge to collect jeans
My name is Kirsten Coleman. As
some of you may be aware, I'm the
founder and spokesperson for
Puppy Love. Puppy Love's mission
is to generate awareness of therapy
dogs for rehabilitative purposes
and to promote youth involvement
within the community.
Each year Puppy Love chooses a
charity organization to participate
with their fundraising efforts. This
year I have chosen "Pageant Pants"
and the HOPE organization as my
charity of choice.
Allison Kreager, Miss Florida
2007, founded Pageant Pants. Her
goals are to assist children with
eating disorders to be comfortable
withintheir own 'JEANS." She has
developed a blue jean donation
drive to collect unwanted denim
jeans to be given to appropriate
children's homes and homeless
shelters.
I would like to challenge each of
you to collect as many pairs of
denim jeans as you can and assist
me with this worthy cause.
The young lady who donates the
most jeans will be recognized with
a prize at the Little Miss Sumter
County Pageant
All donations may be brought to
the Sumter County Fair Grounds
and given to Ms. Barb or you can
contact me directly
I would like to ask that you
bag/box the jeans up and mark
them on the outside with your
child's name and the number of
jeans inside that would help. The
deadline for donations will be the
dress rehearsal night, Jan. 23.

A cruel act
. I am a Bushnell resident and
have never heard of such a cruel
act as the poisoning of the cats
near SSHS. My heart and prayers
go out to Joe Schiavo, his family
and all who love animals.
As a nation, town, and commu-
nity we are judged when we allow
acts of inhumanity, whether it is
against people or animals.
Will we listen to the call to be a
loving, caring and responsible com-
munity? I hope so. Do the right
thing and turn in the people who.
did this horrible act
Joe, I want you to know that my
family feels your pain and grieve
with you. Please know that there
are many more good people who
are like you. We have 6 adopted
cats (all fixed) and 4 adopted dogs
(all fixed). They give us great joy
and are family members with fur
jackets.
I am afraid to give my address in
case the people who did this act
might hurt our animals.
Rebecca Pet kus
Bushnell
Illinois, now Florida?
It seems to this writer that there
is more corruption in America than


ever before! Many politicians ap-
parently have now lost their 'moral
compass'! Case in point: Six of the
present seven members (directors)
of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District (S.EW.M.D),
which oversees, serves 16 counties,
were appointed by Gov. Charlie
Crist! Why, you say, is this a prob-
lem? Four of his 'picked' directors
recently voted to bail out U.S.
Sugar, which claims $6 million to
$7 million debt, by purchasing
181,000 acres in the
Everglades/Okeechobee region for
an inflated price of $1.34 billion,
when recently the same property
was appraised for $930 million!
Whilour state our state has a $2.3 billion
' deficit, wag this the right time to
make the largest land purchase in
the history of the state?
Why was it so important that he
called each member to push
through while on his honeymoon?
Then when you throw in all of the
financing and debt costs this con-
tract purchase will exceed $3.4 bil-
lion! The fact is that only a small
portion of this land was needed for
the flow-way, however thousands
more acres are needed from other
sugar growers to complete the huge
reservoirs envisioned, at an addi-
tional cost of at least $4.3 billion
and no one has initiated any nego-
tiations to purchase! The kicker?
The district admits that "it hasn't
developed a plan to construct the
flow-way"! And, would you believe,
the board even agreed to lease
back to U.S. Sugar, at 25 percent of
the going rate, for a period of seven
years! Now this large parcel will be
off of the tax rolls forever, and U.S.
Sugar will be in great shape to take
advantage of taxpayer growers!
The governor dipped into the state
contingency fund last year and now
will have to float a large bond if
this deal is closed! The governor, of
course, was well aware that many
colleges have had to 'cut back', uni-
versity professors are leaving for
other states, some schools are hav-
ing to close, health clinics have cut
staff, many useful programs for the
sick will simply die! The question,
what is propelling this sordid race
to the bottom in public official-
dom? Pray for Florida!

SUMMER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY 15, 2009, PAGE 5



New power lines to affect residents, meeting planned


Staff report
Sumter County residents
will have an opportunity to
examine plans for new elec-
tricity transmission lines
proposed by Progress En-
ergy at a meeting in Wild-
wood next week.
Progress Energy is plan-
ning the meeting, called an
open house, to present the
proposed routes for the
transmission lines, which
cut through portions of
Sumter County, and to
gather additional feedback
from members of the com-
munity.
The meeting is from 4 to
7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21,
at the Wildwood Community
Center, County Road 139.
The proposed transmis-
sion route will largely follow


an existing transmission
line in Citrus, Marion and
Sumter counties, according
to a Progress Energy press
release. The company may
need to widen its existing
rights-of-way in this area. In
some portions of Sumter
County, new rights-of-way
will be needed.
"Community input into
this process has been key.
Overwhelmingly, people
suggested we locate the new
lines along existing lines
wherever possible. We lis-
tened to that feedback," said
Jeff Lyash, president and
CEO of Progress Energy
Florida. "We're largely fol-
lowing the path of an exist-
ing transmission line, which
minimizes the impacts on
the community and environ-


ment from the line that runs
from the proposed Levy
County plant to the Wild-
wood area."
According to current
plans, which won't be final-
ized until the end of the
year, a total of 35 homes in
several counties will likely
be affected over the 200
miles of new lines, accord-
ing to Gail Simpson,
Progress Energy manager of
public policy. Some of those
homes are in Sumter
County, and many more
parcels will be affected. The
company has been contact-
ing owners of the parcels
and homes that will poten-
tially be affected.
The company has also
been seeking community
input and encouraging pub-


lic involvement as it selects
potential transmission
routes. As part of this
process, Progress Energy
initiated a community ap-
proach that includes partic-
ipation from key community
leaders throughout the re-
gion. The Community Part-
nership for Energy Planning
involves a cross-section of
community leaders and rep-
resentatives in Citrus, Mar-
ion, Lake and Sumter
counties, including public
officials, businesses, envi-
ronmental groups, neighbor-
hoods and economic
development agencies,
among others.
Representatives will pro-
vide information on the po-
tential corridors, including
aerial photographs, esti-


mated timeline, the need for
the lines and other informa-
tional materials.
Progress Energy has sent
letters to about 4,700 homes
and businesses near the pro-
posed routes in this area.
Aside from concerns
about the potential effects
on local properties, some
residents are concerned
about environmental and
health impacts.
"Some people are con-
cerned about the ... electro-
magnetic fields," Simpson
said. "We provide them a lot
of information online to let
them know that it's regu-
lated," she said, adding
Florida is one of the few
states that are regulated in
that area.
Legal requirements en-


sure "there are no safety or
health issues from the elec-
tromagnetic fields."
Plans for the new lines
won't be finalized until the
end of this year, and con-
struction is set for 2012.
Open house meetings
have already taken place in
Hillsborough, Polk and
Pinellas counties and simi-
lar meetings were set for
this week in Citrus, Her-
nando, and Levy counties.
"We hope the people can
come but if not, there're lots
of ways they can get infor-
mation," Simpson said. "We
will continue to keep the
public informed every step
of the way."

There is a mixer dance
every first and third Friday
night from 8 to 11 p.m. at the
Lake Panasoffkee Commu-
pity Building, on C.R. 470

block north of the traffic
light across from the truck
stop.


As the temperature outside
drops, Sumter County families
take to the indoors to keep
safe and warm. What they may
not realize is that turning up
the heat can increase the risk
of home heating fires.
According to the National
Fire Protection Association
(NFPA), nearly half of all
home-heating fires occur dur-
ing the winter months. On av-
erage, NFPA research shows
that heating equipment is in-
volved in roughly 70,000 re-
ported U.S. home structure
fires, with associated loss of
more than 600 civilian deaths,
almost 1,600 civilian injuries
and more than $1 billion in di-
rect property damage.
"While these numbers are
frightening, nearly all of these
fires are preventable," said
Brad Burris, Fire Marshal,
S.C.FR. "We can reduce the


number of home heating fires
in our community by taking
some simple precautions and
using heating equipment
properly." NFPA and Sumter
County Fire Rescue recom-
mend some simple home heat-
ing safety tips, so residents can
help keep our community safe
and warm this winter:
Have your chimney in-
spected each year and cleaned
if necessary.
Use a sturdy fireplace
screen.
Allow ashes to cool before
disposing. Dispose of ashes in
a metal container.
Space heaters need space.
Keep all things that can burn,
such as paper, bedding or fur-
niture, at least 3 feet away
from heating equipment.
Turn portable heaters off
when you go to bed or leave
the room.


Plug power cords only into
outlets with sufficient capacity
and never into an extension
cord.
Inspect for cracked or bro-
ken plugs or loose connec-
tions. Replace before using.
Install smoke alarms in
every bedroom, outside each
sleeping area and on every
level of the home.
Interconnect all smoke
alarms throughout the home
so that when one sounds, they
all sound. Test smoke alarms
at least once a month.
. Install and maintain a car-
bon monoxide alarm in a cen-
tral location outside each
sleeping area.
Never use an oven to heat
your home.
By taking simple precau-
tions, residents can help pre-
vent home-heating fires this
winter.

"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.


Plan today for peace of mind tomorrow!

Wildwood hoop boys now 11-3


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

The Wildwood High bas-
ketball team keeps piling
up victories.
Just a year ago, the Wild-
cats were 11-4.
Wildwood boys basket-
'ball is now 11-3 in 2009.
They are 3-1 in the district
Mount Dora is undefeated.
'and leading the district.
The Wildcats beat three
opponents last week.
They beat the Villages 78-
43 on Tuesday, Jan. 6.
DeAndre Mitchell led the
team with 14 points. Anto-
nio Tanner had 13. points
and Derrick Williams had
13. Demetrice McCray had
12 points.
"I thought they did a
pretty good job," said coach
Von Moreland. "We had a
little run before the first


half. I though the Villages
kids played hard."
Clyde Edwards, a guard,
had eight rebounds, four
assists and five steals.
Akeem Marsh had eight re-
bounds.
Wildwood beat South
Lake there Thursday 56-47.
McCray had 15 points.
Justin Akieme also had 15
points. Mitchell had 12
points.
"I thought we played a
pretty good first half," said
Moreland. "We pretty much
couldn't put them away. It
stayed close the rest of the
way."
McCray and Williams
both had seven rebounds.
They beat Ocala Trinity
Catholic 54-52 in Ocala. It
took a last second play to
give them the victory.
"We were able to strip the
ball," Moreland said. "Der-
rick Williams had a fast


break lay-up at the buzzer.
It was a good game and ex-
citing for the fans. We
squandered a lead at the
end. We let them back in.
We had a nine-point lead at
one time but they came
back to tie us. We didn't
handle the last few minutes
very well. We have to do
better."
McCray had 18 points.
Williams had 13. Akieme
had 11 points. Williams had
11 rebounds.
Wildwood was to play
South Sumter Monday
night. Results were un-
available at press time.

Forbes 24 keys 61-56 upset of West Port


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Quietly, the South Sumter
High girls basketball team is
sneaking up on the top teams
in the Class 4A-District 6.
Joy Forbes hit 24 points and
grabbed 11 rebounds to lead
the Raiders to a major 61-56
upset of Ocala West Port High
Friday at the Raiders gym.
South Sumter was 9-7 over-
all and 7-4 in district play
West Port fell to 10-8 overall
and 8-2 in district play
South Sumter recently lost
by a few points to Lecanto in
Citrus County.
The Raiders know that they
won't be the doormat of the
district when the tournament
is played Feb. 3 at Dunnellon
High. In fact, they could end
up as the third seed and have
a shot at the playoffs.
Forbes had some help espe-
cially from two other Raiders.
Tasha Kenderson had 15
points .and 11 rebounds and


Katura Harrison had 15
points and 13 rebounds.
Forbes has become an of-
fensive force with plenty of
scoring in recent games.
"I want to contribute as
much as I can," said Forbes.
"We have to play as a team.
"It (upsetting West Port)
means a lot. We came out and
played hard."
The Raiders may have lost
one of their top players. De-
siree Mitchell suffered an
ACL injury and may or may
not return to the team this
season.
The Raiders took charge of
the game in the third quarter
when they outscored the Wolf-
pack 20-7. Kenderson had six
points in the period.
West Port's Dakeira
Williams, who had 21 points,
scored eight in the fourth pe-
riod.
At one time, South Sumter
led 51-39. West Port scored the
final seven points of the game.
South Sumter committed 26
turnovers while West Port had


only eight.
However, West Port coach
Cory Rollerson said the
Raiders outplayed his team.
The Raiders coach had a
big smile after the upset tri-
umph.
* "There's a new challenger
in' the district now," said
South Sumter head coach
Gary Russo. "That was a huge
win for .us. They beat us by 45
or 47 up there. At least now,
people have to take us seri-
ously
"We have been doing this
for awhile. We are back in the
district hunt. The girls have
worked hard.
"We just beat one of the best
teams in the state of Florida.
What can I say?"
South Sumter was to play
Belleview at home Tuesday.
Results were not available at
press time.
The Raiders will face Crys-
tal River Friday in Citrus
County.

Critter chatter


A good book for animal lovers


LINDA GRAVES
Special to the Times

I have just finished reading
'a true story of "Dewey, the
3Small Town Library Cat That
Touched the World." This is a
good book to read not only for
cat lovers, but for all animal
,lovers. Dewey was loved by the
library staff, its patrons, and
the entire community. Read-
ing the book clearly illustrates
the special place this kitty
held in the hearts of all who
knew him.
The book got me thinking,
and so I did some research.
Was this an isolated case, or
are there more dearly loved li-
brary and bookstore cats?
I discovered that there are
many special cats that make
their home in. libraries and
bookstores across America.
Approximately 150 small town
libraries "employ" cats. Once
kept for rodent control, the
modern day cat has new re-
sponsibilities; to greet visitors
and create a welcoming and
homey atmosphere, and to
offer counseling and compan-


ionship to the people who
enter through the establish-
ment doors.
Because cats ,and books
compliment each other, cats
can be found in many small-
town libraries and bookstores.
Because of their intuitive-na-
ture, the resident cats of thbee
establishments can help you
choose the purrfect book to
read. Walking atop the many
bookshelves, kitties will en-
courage you to sit and read
while curling up in your lap.
What a relaxing way to spend
an afternoon.
Small town residents rally
around their library and book-
store cats, and many have be-
come famous not only in their
own hometown, but through-
out the world. They have be-
come public relations
specialists, and encourage
reading from children as well
as adults. They are special cats
with quiet demeanors and
friendly personalities. And
they are loved by their com-
munity citizens.
Cats have become so popu-
lar in rural libraries that in
1987, the Library Cat Society


was founded by Phyllis Lahti
of Minnesota. Inspired by
Bryant Public Library resi-
dent cat, Reggie, the mission of
the society is to advocate cats
in libraries and recognize the
need to respect and care for li-
brary cats. The Society en-
courages'libraries to curl up
with a good cat
Research shows that most li-
brary cats were found aban-
doned in parking lots or
dropped in book return
chutes. Rescued by the librar-
ians, these cats have given
back to their communities in
more ways than ever imag-
ined.
A few special cats found on
the internet are Molli of the
Azle Public Library in Texas;
there is Trixie the cat who
started her career in 1999 at
the Ocean Shores Library in
Washington; and in the Mystic
and Noank Library in Con-
necticut, the resident cat
Emily was named after au-
thors Emily Dickinson and
Emily Bronte.
Library and bookstore cats
encourage young children to
enjoy book reading time, and


offer adults and seniors a
quiet and cozy feeling. They
inspire reading and frequent
visits to the library or book
store. What a great way to
enjoy a book or magazine with
a cat curled up in your lap.
And best of all, you can
adopt a kitty from your local
shelter and enjoy curling up
with a good book and a loving
cat right in your own home!


Fiesty is a lap kitty, just
under a year old, who en-
joys the company of peo-
ple and other cats. She is
spayed and current on her
vaccinations. If you would
like to adopt Fiesty, call
the Humane Society/
SPCA of Sumter County at
793-9117 or e-mail to hu-
mane@sum.net.

SECO announces 2009 scholarship


Seniors from Marion, Cit-
rus, Lake, Sumter, Pasco,
Levy and Hernando coun-
ties Eligible
Up to twelve deserving
high school seniors from
Sumter Electric Coopera-
tive's service territory will
receive assistance from the
Co-op this year to go on to
college or a technical school
following high school. The
SECO Board of Trustees re-


cently voted to continue the
Co-op's popular scholarship
program which, over the
years, has helped many de-
serving students attain
higher learning when that
might have been more diffi-
cult otherwise.
The students chosen to re-
ceive SECO Scholarships in
2009 will eachbe the benefi-
ciaries of a $2,500 grant to
assist them in their pursuit


of higher education.
SECO Director of Corpo-
rate Communications Barry
Bowman said, "The selec-
tion of those students who
will receive scholarships
will be based on each indi-
vidual's past and present ac-
tivities in school and the
community, financial need
and scholastic record.
'All applicants will be
evaluated by an independ-


ent panel of educators from
around the SECO service
territory."
He noted that to qualify,
graduates must reside in a
home being served by SECO
and be enrolled in an ac-
credited college, university
or vocational/technical
school by the end of 2009. .
Applications are now
available at area high school
guidance offices and at any


of SECO's customer se
centers in Marion, Lak
rus, and Sumter cou
They must be return
SECO no later than I
27.
"The SECO scholar
program reaffirms th
op's commitment to t
ture of our young pi
and while the program
no impact on the ci
electricity, it is a sign

e, Cit- struggling to fund their

arship sources can be found on the

Members of the Granville Beville No. 2234 of the United Daughters of the Confed-
eracy met at the home of Mrs. Belle Phillips In Wildwood


Salt is the subject at meeting


She's only five years old but she knows how to ride
with the best of them. Madison Craig, daughter of
Johnny and Tammy Craig, of Bushnell, competed in her
first horse show on Jan. 10, at Leesburg Saddle Club.
Madison and her pony, Sammy, took first place in Pee
Wee barrels, poles and barrel weave. She is shown
here with her ribbons.


On Jan. 10, the Granville
Beville No. 2234 of the
United Daughters of the
Confederacy met at the
home of Mrs. Belle Phillips
in Wildwood. Those in atten-
dance were: Marilyn
Barnes, Kathy Black, Peggy
Griffin, Mary Harrison, Jes-
sica Hoag, Karen Larsen,
Belle Phillips, Eloise Pitts,
Deborah Riddle, Carolyn
Shaw, Peggy Sloan, Doris
Sue Smith, Jewell Stansell,
Laura Strickland, Bonnie
Tenney, Carol Tomlinson,
Joyce Higginbotham, Made-
line Larsen, and Miles
Larsen. Madeline and Miles
Larsen are both members of
the Florida Division Chil-
dren on the Confederacy


and hold the offices of Edi-
tor and Treasurer, respec-
tively.
Belle Phillips presented a
program titled "Out of Salt."
It discussed the great diffi-
culty in obtaining salt during
the War Between the States
due to the Federal blockade
of ports that cut off the im-
ported salt from Great
Britain, Europe and the
Caribbean to the Southern
states. Salt was greatly
needed for salted pork to
feed the troops. Without the
much-needed salt, the
troops weren't able to tan
leather for shoes, belts, har-
nesses, machinery belts,
gaskets, and pads.
Also, the uniforms would


quickly fade, as the dyes
would not be true colors.
After this very enlightening
program, Mrs. Phillips
served a delicious brunch.
The meeting ended with
the singing of "Old Folks at
Home" and "Dixie." Food
items, donated by the mem-
bers for a local church food
pantry, totaled more than 66
pounds.
The next meeting of the
chapter will be February 14,
2009, at the First Baptist
Church of Bushnell Fellow-
ship Hall at 10 a.m. All inter-
ested in attending are
invited.

Progress Energy Florida is working to ensure
our state continues to have the reliable power it
needs. This includes possible new transmission-
lines in your area.
To determine the best route for these transmission
lines, we are working with the Community
Partnership for Energy Planning, a cross-section
of community leaders and representatives from
Citrus, Hernando and Levy counties. The proposed
transmission route will largely follow an existing
transmission line in Citrus, Marion and Sumter
counties. The company may need to widen its
existing rights of way in this area. In some
portions of Sumter County new rights of way
will be needed.
To hear more about the proposed transmission
line in your area and our balanced solution for
meeting Florida's future energy needs, including
energy efficiency, alternative energy and
state-of-the-art power plants, please attend
one of these meetings:
