Saturday, the 2010 Relay
For Life event at the Lake-
Sumter Community Col-
lege campus in Sumterville
began with a survivor in-
troduction ceremony fol-
lowed by the traditional
"Survivors Lap," an inspi-
rational moment in Relay
when survivors circle the
track together to celebrate
the medical and emotional
strides achieved over can-
cer.
Sumter's annual Ameri-
can Cancer Society Relay
For Life is slated to be a


"life-changing" occasion to
celebrate the lives of peo-
ple who have battled can-
cer, remember loved ones
lost, and fight back against
the disease.
Relay does much more.
The event brings people in
the community together,
both well and those af-
flicted with cancer, to face
and confront a historic and
horrific medical malady
that will touch most indi-
viduals in some way during
their lifetimes.
Ironically, a group less
likely to contract cancer

Airborne during Dodge Southeast Circuit Finals Rodeo in November with an arm around a charging steer that weighed hun-
dreds of pounds is 56-year-old Judge William "Bud" Hallman, 5th Circuit Court judge and longtime Sumter County resi-
dent. Regarding his age, Hallman quipped, "we don't have to behave like old people just because society treats us a certain
way."












Webster's justice-dispensing cowboy


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

His roles are as different as Clark Kent's
is to Superman's. Depending on your tim-
ing, he's either 56-year-old 5th Circuit
Court Judge William Hallman or, he's Steer
Wrestling Champion of the 2009 Dodge Cir-


cuit Finals Rodeo, "Bud" Hallman.
Recently, the justice-dispensing cowboy
from Webster could have used a little help
from Superman in throwing a couple of the
500-pound steer randomly drawn for him
by 2010 Dodge National Finals Rodeo offi-
cials in Idaho.
Though Hallman was by far the oldest


man competing in the Idaho rodeo, the
judge said his age was never a factor.
"A lot of things seemed to go the wrong
way, but I feel blessed to qualify and com-
pete at that level," said Hallman.

Remembering




the Holocaust


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

Along with two older sis-
ters and his parents, 16-
year-old Gene Klein was
marched from the familiar
comforts of his home in
Hungary and eventually
herded onto a crowded
railroad cattle car contain-
ing one bucket for human
waste and another for what
passed for food; the jour-
ney that followed delivered
him into the bowels of in-
humanity
South Sumter Middle
School Eighth-Grade
Reading Teacher Valery
Aquilar and Curriculum
Coordinator Stacy Morri-
son recently arranged for
Klein, a holocaust survivor,
to share details of his ex-
perience with eighth-grade
students.
The train's destination
was Auschwitz, a sprawling


Nazi concentration camp
in southern Poland near
the end of World War II.
Klein, now 80, told his
story to the collective
eighth-grade class in the
school auditorium last
week
"I will never forget the
old lumber yard where we
stayed after they took our
home. There was no lum-
ber left, no walls, just pole
barns we used old blan-
kets for warmth and pri-
vacy," said Klein. "Then
one day they forced us into
cattle cars at gun point for
the three-day trip to
Auschwitz."
Klein described the hor-
rific treatment of Jews at
the Auschwitz Nazi killing
factory One of the most ef-
ficient "death machines"
involved in the holocaust,
Jews were starved, defiled,

Klein was only 16 when

CRIME

continued from Page 1

sheriff's office press re-
lease.
Mosley was arrested
April 30, by sheriff's inves-
tigators.
The report stated the vic-
tim was at the rehabilita-
tion center approximately
two months and that she
discovered the thefts after
being discharged on March
20.
The victim reported
$1,440 in fraudulent
charges on her credit card
billing statement.
Mosley allegedly used
the victim's credit card to
purchase personal items
from Walmart, gasoline,
pedicures and bus tickets,
according to the report.
Investigators from the


sheriff's office arrested
Mosley after human re-
source officers of Freedom
Pointe identified her from
surveillance photographs
taken while she was using
the victim's credit card, ac-
cording to the report.
Mosley was working as
an aid at Freedom Pointe
when she allegedly stole
the patient's credit card.
Investigators say after
her arrest Mosley admitted
to the crimes and was
transported to the deten-
tion center charged with
fraudulent use of a credit
card and petit theft. Bond
was set at $2,500.
Exploitation of
elderly arrest
Kathy L. White, 57, Belle-
view, was arrested for ex-
ploitation of the elderly
and grand theft by sheriff's
investigators on April 29,


according to a sheriff's re-
port.
The victim is an 88-year-
old male dementia patient
from Lake Panasoffkee.
White, a licensed certi-
fied nurse's aid, admitted
to obtaining $400 from the
victim under false pre-
tenses because of his con-
dition, according to the
report.
The ongoing investiga-
tion is focused on approxi-
mately $6,000 of
questionable expenditures
from the victim's bank ac-
count.
Investigators said White
could "talk him into any-
thing," and she knew what
she did was wrong.
Investigators intend to
contact the Florida De-
partment of Health regard-
ing potential licensing
violations in White's case.
Bond was not set.

Try keeping





it local

ome things are not as they appear. We have all learned

that lesson probably a dozen times or two. We're seeing
more and more interest in eating healthier For many
people, eating healthy means eating more vegetables. And
we're not just talking any vegetables but vegetables grown
local at nearby farms not shipped in from Mexico or Ar-
gentina.
In some areas, co-op programs between farmers and those
wishing to obtain fresh fruit and veggies exists. An upfront
fee helps the farmer with some seed money excuse the
pun to start up. The weekly fee gets the contributor a wide
variety of veggies, fruit some can even be exotic and un-
usual.
A local small farmer has lots to overcome before he or she
makes the first buck Cost of seed, fertilizers, lack of rain or
too much rain, broken equipment makes farming a chal-
lenge. Challenges that may mean the farmer needs to charge
more for a pound of tomatoes.
But buying from the farmer, through a farmers' market,
means you really know where your vegetable came from.
There is no relying on a sticker to tell you the vegetable's ori-
gin when you know the grower Interestingly, items in a su-
permarket are shipped an average of 1,500 miles before
being sold.
And here's a sad fact, only 18 cents of every dollar, when
buying at a large supermarket, goes to the grower
Here in Sumter County, consumers have a variety of
sources to help support local growers and to ensure that pro-
duce is as fresh a possible.
On Monday, there's the Sumter County Farmers Market
in Webster where all sorts of fresh food products can be pur-
chased. On the north end of the county, there's the Wildwood
Growers Market operated every Saturday.
If that's not enough, small fruit and vegetable stands flour-
ish along Sumter roadsides displaying lots of locally grown
items.
With all the competition out there, try and support growers
who provide you with fresh locally grown items.
But, the local farmer isn't the only one facing stiff compe-
tition.
Fishermen have some of the same problems facing the
farmer
They too have seen in influx of imported seafood flooding
the markets.
According to the National Marine Fisheries Service, for-
eign countries claim the vast majority, 88 percent, of the mar-
ket in the United States. Florida's shrimp industry supports
4,400 jobs and contributes more than $185 million to the
state's economy
Think of that when you are in the mood for some shrimp
and then buy as close to the source as you can.
Taking the time and paying a few cents more to support
local food sources is a wise investment. Eating tastier food
today keeps the local economy chugging along and that's get-
ting a big bang for your buck


A step beyond




Moms are special


Sunday, May 6
is Mothers' Day

A face without freckles is like a
night without stars! At least that is
what it says on the plaque in my
kitchen that my mom gave me.
Don't you love moms? They al-
ways know how to make you feel
good.
Having a mom is like having
your own personal cheerleader.
Where would we be without
them? Really, who else would
make you feel good about having a
face full of freckles? Leave it to
good ole mom.
Moms have amazing talents.
They can get the straw in the juice
box every time. For me, this
process usually involves a knife
and a juice stain on my shirt. I
can't get that dar straw in no mat-
ter how hard I try Moms know
how to fold a fitted sheet into a
nice neat square, unlike the rum-
pled ball on the shelf in my linen
closet. Moms carry medicine cab-
inets in their purses. If they don't
have a band-aid they are always at
the ready with a kiss to make it all
better
I don't know how they do it but
moms are always wise. They know


Special to the
Times

everything. Listen to your mom.
She is always right. I was told they
have eyes in the back of their
heads. I haven't been able to verify
this but I believe it to be true. They
always know what you are up too.
You can bet your mom is a mem-
ber of the secret mom network. As
long as she pays her dues she'll
have moms looking after you no
matter where you are.
Moms have big hearts. No, make
that huge hearts. They forgive you
when you cut up their good sheet
set to use for a craft project. They
get over the vase you broke when
you were playing ball in the house
even though you were told a thou-
sand times not to. Moms take in
stray cats, dogs, and friends. They
have enough love to go around.
Moms are the best. They make
good listeners. You can always talk

Calendar, Just a place to put an "X"


Today's societal chal-
lenges usually mean that
children grow up in a dif-
ferent environment than
what their parents were
exposed to. I am not talking
about all the external influ-
ences, rather the simple
pleasure of having a parent
available to put you on the
bus, meet you when you get
off the bus, and spend the
afternoon with you doing
whatever activities fill the
calendar. Fast-paced agen-
das and busy schedules
have replaced family time
and group activities. While
this almost seems normal,
it is especially difficult for
a small percentage of our


population.
April was Month of the
Military Child. Both my
wife and I come from fam-
ilies with many veterans,
but neither of us were mil-
itary brats. Our fathers
were out of the service by
the time we were born. For
us, as much as possible, we
experienced a rather nor-
mal childhood. Other than
an occasional work emer-
gency or school meeting,
my parents were both
around to shuttle my sister,
brother, and I to our vari-
ous after-school engage-
ments. With my children,
like so many other military
families, at least one par-


ent is either deployed, or
getting ready to deploy, to a
country far from home. My
kids are eight and five, and
I am currently spending
my 35th month in Iraq.
While it is easy to feel
sorry for my kids, unfortu-
nately, they see it as an or-
dinary part of life. At their
young age, they perceive
the normalcy in daddy
going to Iraq for a year or
so, because that is part of
his job. The strength, inde-
pendence, and mental
tenacity they develop
cause them to mature
much sooner than we all
would like. This same ma-
turity strengthens their re-


solve and assists in coping
and understanding. I can
remember being upset if
my dad was not able to
make it to one of my games,
yet when I missed 15
months of my daughter's
activities, she just said,
"It's OK daddy, I know you
were in Iraq helping all
those other people."
When the kids were
younger, time really did
not have much meaning.
To them, a week, a month,
and a year were all about
the same a long time.
Until they learned how
long a year really is, the
calendar was just a place
to put an "X" over each day


daddy was gone. Time
stamps were measured in
major events, such as "I
won't be here for your
birthday party this year,
but I should be home in
time for your party next
year"
So, when you see a tired,
sad, distant parent, and
their children have on
shirts that say, "My dad is
in Iraq," make sure you
take the time to thank
them. I do not mean thank
them for what we are doing
over here, but thank the
children for being strong
and powering through the
situations they have no
control over and the over-


powering emotions their
young minds just can not
comprehend.

"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.

Nancy!"
Urn, that didn't happen but
some humbling and humili-
ating stuff did. Plus, for two
years after that I didn't get a
single invitation to speak, not
even for free.
I always figured that God
was punishing me for being a
wretched sinner too full of
myself to be filled with him.
Frankly, I deserved much
worse than just a two-year
Time Out.
But my friend, whom I re-
spect immensely, said that
was balderdash, that if God
punished either one of us for
being full of ourselves when-
ever we spoke at an event,
neither one of us would ever
speak anywhere again.
I don't know. I still think I
was being punished, or at
least disciplined. Isn't that
the same thing?

God being a good Father, and
good fathers punish their
children when they misbe-
have. So, wouldn't God do the
same?
In talking further with my
friend, he explained that
there's a lot of manipulative
teaching and bad theology
out there regarding how God
deals with his children.
Hebrews 12 talks about the
discipline of God, that God
disciplines everyone he con-
siders his child and how
we're not to despise the
hardships we go through, but
to endure them, even em-
brace them, as from the
hands of a loving Father
But.
But, as my friend pointed
out, not every bad thing that
happens is a direct result of
the bad we do or have done.

For example, he said, you
don't get cancer because you
were mean to your mother If
God kept score, if he played
tit for tat, we would all have
been fried on the spot a long
time ago.
My friend also said it's
neurotic to think that God's
going to break your face
when you get out of line, yet
that's common thinking in
some churches.
Isn't it true that whenever
someone is caught commit-
ting one of the really big sins
and then later something ter-
rible happens there's a buzz
around the church? "Well,"
someone will say, "he proba-
bly lost his business because
he cheated on his wife a few
years ago. After all, God dis-
ciplines everyone he calls a
son, don'tcha know."
In many churches there's
an underlying, even an open
fear, that if we don't toe the
line then God will "adminis-
ter the rod of correction to
the seat of learning."
There's a sense that God is
a strict, no-nonsense discipli-
narian who's constantly
watching for people who step
out of line so he can whack
them, and the whacking is
called "God's discipline."
But is it?
That brings up another
question: If God still pun-
ishes us for our sin, what was
the Cross all about? When
Jesus said, "It is finished,"
and later the writer of He-
brews wrote that God says he
"will remember our sins no
more," doesn't that mean the


penalty for our sin is gone?
Freedom from the penalty
of sin isn't free if we have to
continually "mind our P's
and Q's" lest God raps us on
the knuckles. Grace isn't
grace if we have to strive to
maintain it.
Even so, the Bible is clear
that hardships come to God's
people as part of his disci-
pline for us, but it's for our
good and for our training in
making us better, not because
we've been bad.
My pastor friend told the
story of an American who
went to a Middle Eastern


school, family and friends
snatched away and the three-
day journey aboard the filthy
cattle car were, they paled in
comparison to the time he
spent at Auschwitz.
Klein calmly and articu-
lately described how his life
abruptly changed from a nor-
mal existence in Hungary to
a desperate struggle to sur-
vive under conditions so de-
plorable that many of those
who were not gassed and
burned "threw themselves
on electrified barbed wire to
end their suffering."
Some students covered
their mouths with a hand and
still more lowered their
heads while absorbing de-
tails of the holocaust from
such a credible eyewitness.
"I remember the elders
talking about war as early as
1938 when Germany manipu-
lated and supported Hun-

Make greener
choices
After the tragic oil rig ex-
plosion in the Gulf Coast,
many people are rightfully
concerned that the oil spill
will reach our shorelines,
polluting beaches and devas-
tating marine life. Unfortu-
nately, there isn't much we
can do to undo the destruc-
tion or bring back the work-
ers who are presumed dead.
We can, however, at least try
to negate some of the envi-
ronmental damage by mak-
ing greener choices in our
daily activities.
Choosing vegan foods, for
example, can help reduce
pollution and conserve re-
sources. More than one-third
of the fossil fuels produced
in America are used to raise
animals for food, and factory
farm waste lagoons are a
leading source of water pol-
lution. According to the EPA,
chicken, hog, and cattle ex-
crement has polluted at least
35,000 miles of rivers in 22
states and contaminated
groundwater in 17 states.
Eating vegan foods will help
animals too. Most of us aren't
able to assist rescue groups in
their efforts to save seabirds
and other marine animals in
the gulf, but we can each help
save hundreds of other sentient
animals by going vegan. Please
see www.VegCookingcom for
recipes.

Is this what a presi-
dent does?
Arizona recently passed
country and saw a man driv-
ing sheep across a street, hit-
ting them with his staff and
yelling at them. The Ameri-
can said, "I thought shep-
herds led sheep with their
staff, but you're hitting
them."
The man replied, "I'm not
their shepherd; I'm their
butcher"
I don't presume to know
why hardships and suffering
come to us, nor if any are
punishment for sin. I do know
that ifI get caught shoplifting,
I will get arrested.
But I also know that just as
shepherds don't hit their
sheep, God doesn't hit his
people. His discipline to-
ward his children is from his
unfailing love and not from a
need to avenge. As the
psalmist said, "his rod and
his staff, they comfort me."

gary's aggression against
Czechoslovakia," said Klein.
"The leaders of Germany
and Hungary were stoking
the hatred, blaming Jews for
just about everything."
At some point we were
forced to wear yellow scarves
which distinguished us as
Jews."
Regarding their arrival at
Auschwitz, Klein described
how the Nazi officers in
charge separated entire fam-
ilies with whimsical gestures.
"We were given numbers
and were not allowed to call
one another by name. The
number was who we be-
came," said Klein.
The young, old and sick
were sent to the gas cham-
bers almost immediately and
many of the rest died from
starvation, disease and lack
of medicine in "labor
camps," according to Klein.
"Right after we arrived,

legislation to protect it citi-
zens from the influx of "ille-
gal aliens" that have crossed
its border. Many have been
critical of the governor for
taking these actions. These
are knee jerk reactions
which we see far too often
from those on the left.
So let's take a look at the
situation and respond as op-
posed to react to the situa-
tion. Many of the laws we
have are based on "Natural
Law." Natural law or the law
of nature is law whose con-
tent derives naturally from
human nature or physical
nature, and therefore has
universal validity. In natural
law jurisprudence, the con-
tent of man-made positive
law is related to natural law,
and gets its authority at least
in part from its conformity to
objective moral standards.
Natural law theory attempts
to define a "higher law" on
the foundation of a universal

to a mom. You hate to admit
it but their advice is always
on the money
They give good directions
too. They know the way home
- it is where their heart is.
The only annoying part is
when they tell you how to
drive.
Helping with homework is
also a mom specialty, unless
it is the "new math." Then
you are on your own. They
know how to make good sci-
ence projects or Halloween
costumes. Sometimes they
are one and the same.
You can't forget the taxi

their calling.


they told my father to join a
group on the other side of the
room. I never got to see him
again they gassed him. Gas
and burn, gas and bur -
that's what they did," said
Klein, his voice rising slightly
but still controlled. He
paused to collect his thoughts.
"We were given a pair of
striped pajamas and a spoon,
cup and bowl that was our
worldly possessions for the
duration," Klein said.
Once, garbage from the
camp's kitchen was backed
up just outside the prison
perimeter Klein said some
the men jabbed at the bags
with wires through the elec-
tric fence and rotting potato
peelings fell out. The rotten
peels were painstakingly col-
lected, brought to an area out
of the guards' view, roasted
and consumed.
Flashing forward, Klein
described a recent trip to

understanding that certain
choices in human life are
good or evil, or that certain
human actions are right or
wrong. In short, natural law
is the way in which a rational
human being, seeking to sur-
vive and prosper in society,
would act.
It has been said that these
people crossing our borders
are doing so to feed their fam-
ilies and therefore deserve
some special exemption from
the consequences that come
from that illegal activity. Let
me ask you a question, should
an American citizen in order
to feed their family steal
money or food to provide for
their family, what would hap-
pen to them?
Here in Florida we under-
stand that you as a person
have the natural right for
survival and should another
person break into your home
you have the right to protect
yourself and your family with
They could have raced any
New York City cabbie and

They have the patience of
a saint. Technically it is re-
quired to deal with
teenagers. In fact their can-
onization usually begins
when the child is in his or
her 30s and walking in their
mom's shoes.
Yep, moms are great. I
know because I have the
"bestest" mom in the whole
wide world. I hope you take
some time to remember your
mom on Mother's Day They
deserve all the credit they
can get. There is nothing bet-
ter than a mom. All right, dad
is a close second but we talk
about him next month.

France where his daughter
treated him to a delicacy en-
tree at a fine restaurant.
"Those rotten potato peels
tasted better than that ex-
travagant meal, as good as it
was," said Klein.
Klein described a final
scene when the Nazis aban-
doned the camp overnight.
We didn't know where they
were or even if they were all
gone, Klein said.
After daylight, a man on
horseback was spotted ap-
proaching the gate from a
great distance.
As he drew closer, Klein
and the others could make
out a big red star on his hat. It
was a Russian soldier come
to report they were free.
"It's amazing how my mind
could no longer contemplate
freedom."
But the Russian shot the
lock off the gates and the sur-
vivors knew it was for real,

deadly force.
I suggest that is exactly
what is happening in Ari-
zona, people are breaking
into their homes, committing
crimes and "Natural Law" in
a civilized society allows
them to protect themselves.
In our society we have had
a problem with underage cit-
izens going into stores to pur-
chase beer or tobacco. We
have passed laws prohibiting
the selling of those items to
minors. So those business op-
erators have made it policy
to card everyone regardless
of age, or race.
I would suggest all the gov-
ernor has to do is to make it
the policy of the police, that
anyone they encounter in the
course of their day to day in-
teraction with people that
have made some infraction
of the law, that all persons,
must provide proof of citi-
zenship, red, yellow, black or
white ... no discrimination ...
because they are required to
ask everyone, they cannot se-
lectively ask, it is policy!
Pretty simple.
But when it comes to law,


said Klein.
"We ran through the bar-
racks yelling, 'we are free' in
every language that we
knew," said Klein.
But one of the most terri-
ble things happened after
the food and medicine ar-
rived.
Suddenly, people could eat
as much as they wanted.
"This is an extremely vivid
memory to me," said Klein.
His emotions seemed to roil
just below the surface.
"They started dying. Peo-
ple were dropping dead all
around because their emaci-
ated systems were totally
overwhelmed by too much
food that was being eaten too
fast."
Klein said freedom was a bit-
tersweet moment because,
ironically, if they had adminis-
tered the food in smaller
amounts, he believes thousands
more would have been saved.

what I find despicable, are
the actions of our president!
First, all of our presidents
take an oath to uphold, pro-
tect and defend our Constitu-
tion. In our Constitution we
are all given the "presump-
tion of innocence until
proven guilty." Yet this presi-
dent when addressing the sit-
uation in Arizona made the
following statement, "now
suddenly if you don't have
your papers and you took
your kid out to get ice cream,
you can be harassed, that's
something that could poten-
tially happen."
He, Obama, has charged,
tried and convicted the po-
lice, and this is not the first
time. Is that what a president
is supposed do? How much
longer are our elected repre-
sentatives going to let this at-
tack on our Constitution
continue? After all they too
have taken an oath to uphold,
protect and defend our Con-
stitution. If they don't do
their job, my guess is we will
put those in office who will!

portunity to me, both per-
sonally and academically,
and has provided me with
the confidence I needed to


succeed at the University
level."
Each semester, in com-
pensation for their service,
Ambassadors receive a
$600 stipend through the
Lake-Sumter Community
College Foundation, Inc.

LARRY CLIFTON/Sumter County Times
Chealsea Robinson (right) presents Jim Blount with
a certificate of appreciation for his years of selfless
support. For years, Blount walked all night for previ-
ous Relay events however he was not well enough to
do that this year. The "spirit" walking stick was
handed to survivor Greg Mclntyre who walked for
him Saturday.


RELAY

continuedfrom Page 1

anytime soon was one of
the most well represented
groups at Relay
South Sumter High
School students were
everywhere; the band
played, the school's ROTC
drilled, and the chorus
sang.
Later, a pageant parade
comprised of individuals
representing schools,
churches and businesses
wearing handcrafted props
and creative costumes
strolled around the main
tent entertaining survivors
and guests.
However, the survivors
provided a poignant dose
of inspiration with their
stories of survival and
many suggested that peo-
ple not take the days of
their lives for granted.
As a survivor, Jim Blount
carried the "Spirit Stick," a
custom walking stick, and
walked the Relay track all
night in past events.
But last year was exceed-
ingly difficult for Blount
and though he attended
the 2010 Relay and was
given a certificate of ap-
preciation by Event Coor-
dinator Chelsea Robinson,
he was unable to continue
his walk-a-thons.
Young survivor Greg
McIntyre stepped up to
carry the Spirit Stick for
Blount on Saturday Many
who witnessed this moving
change-of-guard came to


tears as Blount was helped
away, weakened and un-
steady, emotions welling
up in his eyes.
One by one their names
were called and they
walked up to the presenter,
some assisted, most unas-
sisted, to be recognized as
survivors, briefly stating
the nature of their cancer
and the length of time
since diagnosis.
Some were still in the
throws of sickness, pale
and nearly bald from
chemotherapy Others, like
Ruth Pilgrim, had battled
cancer and won many
years ago.
I'm a 44-year survivor
and I thank the Lord, said
Pilgrim.
The survivors at Satur-
day's 2010 Relay For Life
were of both genders and
of all shapes, sizes and
backgrounds. They in-
cluded teachers, custodi-
ans, policemen and
politicians.
These survivors did not
predict an easy win over
cancer by society or sug-
gest that science is winning
the fight for a cure.
However, these survivors
have faced the merciless
adversary, cancer, and they
are waging open warfare of
a personal nature against
it.
The Sumterville Relay
event raised just over
$43,000 of a $50,000 goal
from 35 fund-raising teams
of which 23 participated in
the actual event, according
to Chelsea Robinson, event
coordinator

Donna Etts works to feed Lisa Perryman for the win
in the pie eating contest. Etts and Perryman were on
the Sumter Electric Cooperative team and were
among nearly two dozen competitors who braved
the pie eating challenge. The winners earned "spirit
chips" in a race for the "spirit trophy." The Relay for
Life trophy is for "team spirit" the team who earns
it, keeps it for one year before it rotates on a to a new
team.


Larry Clifton/Sumter County Times
Survivors talked of hope for cures for cancer and often expressed an optimism that they say is crucial in
the fight against cancer.

Since 1977, SCARC, Inc.
has operated a day training
program. Participants are
engaged in a variety of
work areas depending
upon their skill level rang-
ing from lawn mainte-
nance crews to
sub-contract work. An En-
richment Program pro-
vides activities for
individuals for whom work
is not suitable. Adult Basic

fered to everyone.
A long-range goal has
been to construct a new,

form the surrounding
acreage into a fully acces-

home."
Nugent said he agreed to
run because of his long expe-
rience in law enforcement,
commitment to the military
and "great love for this coun-
try."
"I have three sons serving
in the U.S. Army so I think I
have an even greater stake in
providing for our veterans,"
he said.
If elected, Nugent said he
would press for more long-
term jobs in his district.
"I don't think anyone's re-
ally happy with what's going
on (in Washington)," Nugent
said.
Nugent had planned to re-
tire at the end of 2012, when
his term expires. If he wins
the House seat, he said he
would step down as sheriff at
the end of this year and the
governor would appoint
someone to complete his
term.
The sheriff stressed that
his run for Congress does not
mean his office is not inter-
ested in taking over opera-
tions at the Hernando
County Jail.
"We stand ready to work
with the county," he said.
Republican Jason Sager
and Democrat Jim Piccillo
are also running for the con-
gressional seat.
Sager called Friday's polit-


ical turnaround good news
for his race.
"It benefits us because
we're not having to challenge
the juggernaut machine of an
entrenched incumbent,"
Sager said. "At the same time
it's disappointing that my po-
litical party (has) continually
discounted me and chosen to
hand-pick a candidate who
has never shown any interest
in national politics.
"It's obvious there's a
power struggle in place that
is trying to protect itself," he
added.
Sager said he will pit his
record of fiscal responsibility
against Nugent's track
record as sheriff, who saw a
budget increase every year
in office.
Sager said Nugent may
have name recognition in
Hernando County but not in
the entire district, which in-
cludes Citrus, Lake, Levy,
Marion, Pasco, Polk and
Sumter counties.
"I look forward to chal-
lenging the sheriff in any de-
bates coming forward," said
Sager, who describes himself
as a Jeffersonian Republican
who adheres to the country's
founding precepts.
He also espouses the con-
cepts of the growing Tea
Party movement.
Piccillo, who lives in Land
O' Lakes, said he sees Nu-
gent's entry into the race as a
"token gesture" by the Re-
publicans and doesn't be-
lieve the sheriff will attract
many votes.


"I wish him the best but I
don't think he would do well
in this seat," Piccillo said. "I
think this was a friendly ges-
ture and Jason Sager will
come away with the nomina-
tion."
Piccillo also cited Nugent's
many issues with the Her-
nando County Jail.
In March, Nugent sur-
prised county commissioners
by proposing to take over the
operations of the jail from
Corrections Corporation of
America and said he could
run it more efficiently and
save the county money
On April 13, he withdrew
his proposal, saying the jail
was in too bad of shape and
needed an estimated $2 mil-
lion in repairs.
And this week, Nugent
said he would consider run-
ning the jail now that CCA
has opted out of its jail con-
tract in 120 days.
CCA representatives said
the county's overture to Nu-
gent was one factor in lead-
ing to its contract
termination.
Brown-Waite's pullout
means the Fifth District is no
longer a "safe" Republican
seat and the election is now
a toss-up, Piccillo said.
Blaise Ingoglia, chairman
of the Hernando County Re-
publican Executive Commit-
tee, said the executive board
was slated to meet in special
session Friday night and
issue a statement in a couple
days regarding the 5th dis-
trict race.


"No matter what happens,
a Republican will win the
seat," Ingoglia said.
Ingoglia said Friday's an-
nouncement was a surprise
and he was not aware she
was withdrawing from the
race.
"Our hearts and prayers go
out to Congresswoman Ginny
Brown-Waite and her family
and we wish her a speedy re-
covery," Ingoglia said.
Representative Ginny
Brown-Waite and Sheriff
Richard B. Nugent issued
the following joint state-
ments:
Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite:
"As I have prepared for my
campaign, I have been trou-
bled by persistent health
problems and have come to
the disappointing and sad
conclusion that I cannot run
for re-election. There are
simply too many unresolved
issues around my health and
my pancreas in particular As
of this morning, my doctors
are still undecided about
what course to pursue next
for my treatments.
"I encouraged Sheriff Nu-
gent to run because I know
him to be a strong conserva-
tive who will continue my
fight for veterans and sen-
iors. This past week Rich
told me he would stand in my
place for election to Con-
gress. On Monday I will to ask
the secretary of state to with-
draw my name from the bal-
lot.
As I go forward with my


medical treatments, I would
continue to ask for your
prayers for my family and
me."
Sheriff Richard Nugent:
"I am deeply honored by
the trust Ginny has placed in
me. As Wendy and I dis-
cussed beginning this cam-
paign and what it would
mean for our family, we
could not turn down this call
to duty at such a serious time
for our country
"My history of service
began as an 18 year old en-
listing in the Air Force and
serving six years in the Illi-
nois Air National Guard, 12
years as a police officer in a
suburb of Chicago and as a
deputy sheriff and sheriff in
Hernando County, Florida,
for the past 25 years. My wife
has been a teacher in our
public schools for 29 years
and all three of my son's are
committed to serving this
great nation as officers in the
U.S. Army. Our family has a
legacy of service. We will run
a vigorous campaign based
on the conservative values
shared by so many of our
neighbors in Hernando
County and throughout the
5th District.
"There is no one in this
country who has been more
committed to serving our
seniors and veterans than
Ginny Brown-Waite. I am
proud to continue her fight
on their behalf and thank
Ginny for her service and
sacrifice."

presentation on Brownwood and
the future of Wildwood growth at

Exchange. Attendees learned that

in Florida with five residential
DRIs currently engaged in the
approval process, Commissioner
Burgess and Wildwood City
Manager Robert Smith reported
the status of each DRI, addressed
other current road projects, and
opened the floor for questions
from attendees.

Recipes and Reminiscences


t's been said that the fondest
memories are made while gathered
around the kitchen table. We believe
that.
The Sumter County Chamber of
Commerce wants a piece of your
kitchen and your memories to be
included in a Sumter County
cookbook. Recipes are a staple in
southern homes; passed down from
generation to generation and the face
of Sumter County is changing every
day. The Chamber would like to pay
homage to southern tradition and
honor the history of Sumter County
with a compilation of recipes and
photographs built by the Sumter
Community. Are you famous for
your banana pudding? Does your
uncle make the chicken and rice at
every church function? We want the
recipes. We are looking for any and
all photographs that depict Sumter
County's history- landmarks and
businesses that have changed or are
no longer here, family and friends
gathered around the church picnic. If


it represents Sumter County history,
we want to see it. Photos at annual
functions such as the Bushnell Fall
Fest, Royal Homecoming, Linden
Cemetery Picnic, and photos
featuring businesses or Sumter
County places of interest such as
Dade Battlefield or the Webster
Farmer's Market have a higher
probability of publication. Pictures
must be accompanied by a detailed
description of the content and photo
credit. It must be scanned in JPG
format or dropped by the Chamber
office to be scanned. The Chamber
will be working with various media
outlets with the possibility of
featuring the submitted
photographs. Recipes can be mailed
or emailed to the Chamber office.
Please email-
membership sumterchamber.org
or call Samantha Youngblood at
(352) 793-3099 for more
information. Submission does not
guarantee publication and a
release form will be required.

Transportation Trust Fund


The transportation construction
industry is the backbone of
economic development in Florida
but now some lawmakers propose
using funds from the Trust Fund to
balance Florida's budget. With
Tourism and New Home
Construction both !iqin" in
revenues, balancing 1 i.. I,
budget is a daunting task at best;
however the Transportation Trust
Fund which is largely made up of
state fuel taxes, motor vehicle fees,
tolls and federal grants and was
d-i"'nqted tn fund critical road
r11,i .... i i"r.. was established
1, i .1ii, II.e tax payers and
should be used for its intended
purpose. Using these funds to
balance the general fund will
further slow economic recovery.
According to Florida Road
Builders Association, the state's
road funds should not be used as a
"rainy day" money pit and many
members of the Sumter County
Chamber of Commerce, as well as
Florida Attorney General Bill
McCollum (R) and Florida's CFO
Alex Sink (D) support protecting
the fund.


The current reduction to FDOT
funds has already resulted in job
loss and balancing Florida's budget
through the use of the
Transportation Trust Fund will
compromise thousands of Florida
jobs at a time when we simply
cannot afford the economic impact.
A grassroots effort and a
mandate by the tax payers is the
only likely source to preserve these
funds which are necessary for
economic stimulus, the importance
of which should be obvious when
one considers how much of the
stimulus funds were dedicated to
road projects.
The Sumter County Chamber of
Commerce encourages you to
contact your legislators and
encourage them to make every
effort to protect the trust fund both
now and in the future. Our
economic recovery depends on it.
More information can be found at
www.ftba.com or visit the
chamber's website at

need assistance locating your
representative.

A pill of an

operation
Sumter County Sher-
iff's Office partnered
with The Villages Fire
Rescue and Sumter
County Fire Rescue last
month, to sponsor Opera-
tion Medicine Cabinet
that offered residents a
chance to safely dispose
of unused or expired
pharmaceuticals.
The event was at two
locations, The Villages
Sweetbay Market on Old
Camp Road and the sher-
iff's office in Bushnell.
"It was a huge suc-
cess," said Lt. Bobby
Caruthers, sheriff's of-
fice spokesman. "I never
would have guessed we'd
have the turnout that we
did."
According to a press
release from the sheriff's
office, the two drop-off
locations collected 410
pounds (including bottles
and containers) of ex-
pired or unused medica-
tions.
The operation was con-
ceived to prevent dis-
carded drugs from
leeching into the envi-
ronment and contaminat-
ing water supplies and to
keep drugs from getting
into the hands of chil-
dren.

JUDGE


continuedfrom Page 1


One week before the
rodeo, a steer's horn
punctured Hallman's fore-
arm, injuring the muscle
and requiring stitches.
It sank to the bone and
angled away with the
curve of the horn, Hall-
man said.
The injury didn't help,
but a lot of things have to
come together when
you're competing at that
level so far from home,
said Hallman.
"The night before the
rodeo we experienced a
snow storm with 60-mph
gusts and my horse was
delayed in Wyoming on
the other side of the Rock-
ies," said Hallman.


Like people, horses in
competitions need rest
and a chance to settle to
their new environment.
There simply wasn't
enough time for that, ac-
cording to Hallman.
"The delay caused ap-
prehension in my horse
and added to my stress
level since he didn't arrive
until just before the first
round."
During the less than
five-second time frame a
competitive steer wrestler
has to perform, a lot of
things come into play. The
hazer and his horse have
to perform well, the con-
testant's horse is in play
and the steer one draws
are some examples, ac-
cording to Hallman.
"I don't know many peo-
ple out west. California
and Texas have their own
circuits and national


Hallman said he is

the oldest steer-

wrestling champion

he knows of


rodeos draw a lot of loud
and loyal fans.
"In the arena, steers be-
have differently at differ-
ent times. I've seen the
soles torn right off a cow-
boy's boots by a fast steer,"
Hallman said. "That same
steer might stop right in
his tracks during another
round."
Hallman said the steer
in his first round dropped
his head low and was es-
pecially strong.
"It took the next contest-
ant 27 seconds to land that
steer," said Hallman.
"That's forever."
For the second round,


Hallman drew a fast steer.
"He was powerful and ran
hard and managed to rip
loose from my grip.
"I nearly tore up my
knee trying to hold him."
"In the end, it's the indi-
vidual cowboy's event to
win or lose and maybe I
wasn't on my A game," the
judge relented.
Hallman said he is the
oldest steer-wrestling
champion he knows of but
his age was not a factor.
However his age did
come up in some awkward
conversations.
Shortly after arriving,
Hallman was filling out
rodeo forms when a rodeo
employee told him that
contestants were required
to sign their own forms.
Apparently the person
couldn't grasp that a guy
my age could actually be
the contestant, said Hall-


man.
One rodeo judge re-
ferred to Hallman as "the
old guy from Florida."
"In another case, I
asked a woman about
picking up Hallman pho-
tos and she told me how
nice it was of me to do that
for my son," said Hallman
with a chuckle.
Hallman said after he
knew the event was not
winnable he enjoyed the
historic rodeo from a
spectator's perspective.
Hallman maintains his
age was not the reason he
did not win at the Dodge
Nationals.
"It occurs to me that we
don't have to behave as
old people just because
society treats us a certain
way," Hallman said. "We
can decide when we're too
old instead of following
society's templates."

SUMTER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY 6, 2010, PAGE 17


Critter chatter


Be aware of your surroundings


Linda
Graves
Humane
Society


Wildlife abounds in
Florida. Observing
wildlife in natural
habitat, we appreciate and
enjoy the beauty of nature.
Yet, it is always important
to remember to keep our
distance and respect ani-
mals in the wild.
Because this is an active
time for alligators, and the
family pet is at risk, this
column will focus on safely
co-existing with Florida's
famous reptile resident.
Alligators are an intri-
cate part of Florida's
ecosystem. They live in our
swamps, marshes, lakes,
rivers, and can even be
found in ditches. Alligators
dig deep "gator holes" dur-
ing dry seasons, which pro-


vides necessary water for
other aquatic life, that will
in turn repopulate our
water sources. As a hunter,
the alligator is essential in
keeping the balance of na-
ture in Florida's ecosys-
tem. Unfortunately, due to
their loss of habitat by de-
velopment and the ever
growing human popula-
tion, interactions between
humans and alligators
have become more fre-
quent.
Knowing some impor-
tant facts about alligators
can prevent dangerous and
deadly encounters for you
and your pet. Be aware
that the mating season is in
April and May, and alliga-
tors become more aggres-
sive during these months.
Two months later, the fe-
male will lay her eggs, typ-
ically near a water source,
where she will always be
near, protecting her eggs.
65 days later, the eggs will
hatch. Baby alligators
make loud chirping noises,
which brings mother
quickly to their aide.


Over the years, TV news
has reported alligators
killing family pets. Records
show that far more alliga-
tors attack dogs than hu-
mans. To safely co-exist
with alligators, and keep
your pet safe, take the fol-
lowing precautions.
Be aware of the possibil-
ity of alligators near bodies
of water. Because dogs re-
semble an alligators natu-
ral prey, don't allow your
pet near or in waters that
may be alligator habitat.
Do not walk your dog by
lakes, rivers, and marsh
lands. Because alligators
travel from one water
source to another, always
pay attention to your sur-
roundings. Alligators may


be out in the mornings,
sunning themselves, and in
the water later on in the
day They are more active
at dusk and night, when
they naturally feed. If you
have a pet and live near a
body of water, you should
have a fence at the very
least 412 feet high.
Alligators are essential
to Florida's wetlands, and
important to the eco-sys-
tem. To co-exist safely, we
must educate ourselves,
stay aware of our sur-
roundings, and respect the
alligator for his vital role in
our environment.
Stay vigilant for your
pet's safety as well as your
own, and enjoy the beauty
Florida has to offer.
