County to close waste operation


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

The county's solid waste
transfer station adjacent to
the closed landfill at 835
County Road 539 is set to
cease commercial opera-
tions and lay off non-essen-
tial employees by Nov. 1.
The citizens' residential
drop off operation at the
facility will remain.

The county will desig-
nate Sumter Sanitation in
Wildwood to receive in-
county Class 1 commercial
solid waste after the
county closes its facility
Sumter Sanitation,
owned and operated by
The Villages developer,
was proposed by the
county to be the designated
location to deposit Class 1
solid waste after Nov 1, ac-


cording to Bradley Arnold,
county administrator.
During a Sept. 14 County
Commission meeting,
Arnold asked for and re-


ceived commissioners'
unanimous permission to
mothball the county-
owned waste transfer op-
eration after next month.


Assistant County Admin-
istrator Sandee Howell
said the last commercial
waste transfer may or may
not be completed by Nov 1,
but that is the date that af-
fects potential employee
layoffs and other employee
concerns related to closing
down commercial opera-
tions.
Arnold said he and Pub-
lic Works Director Scott


Cottrell needed commis-
sioners' approval to have
time to implement staff re-
ductions and other transi-
tion procedures involved
with management of a
smaller citizen's drop off
operation.

mercial citizen's drop off

Staff Writer

During a Board of
County Commission meet-
ing last month, County Ad-
ministrator Bradley Arnold
introduced new Public
Works Director Scott B.
Cottrell to those in atten-
dance.
Cottrell replaced Gary
Kuhl who was the county's
public works director from
November 2007 until Feb-
ruary 2010 when he re-
signed.
A retired Army colonel
with a bachelor's degree
from West Point and a mas-
ter's degree (PE.) from Uni-
versity of Tennessee,
Cottrell is said to be a Ten-
nessee Volunteers football
fan.
The Public Works Divi-
sion is comprised of four
departments: Road and
Bridge, Solid Waste, Parks
and Recreation, and Mos-
quito Control.
The Road and Bridge
Department is responsible
for the planning, design,
construction and mainte-
nance of county roads and
was allocated a budget of
about $18 million for the
past fiscal year.

Sumterville home certified


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

A Sumterville home is the first in the
county certified as meeting the Florida
Water Star "Gold" standard for water
conservation by the Southwest Florida
Water Management District.
.... "'/ Master Gardener Larry Boyce and
his wife Karen Boyce own the home.
The Boyces' residence at 3330

Wildwood takes a step toward green


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Wildwood will start look-
ing a bit greener soon.
Starting in October, the
city will be offering resi-
dents an opportunity to re-
cycle their plastic, metal,
paper and other items in a
recycling program that will
be provided by Waste Man-
agement.
Waste Management will
be the service provider for
both garbage and recycling
services starting next
month. The company re-
places the city-operated
refuse program.
Currently, Wildwood res-
idents are in the process of


receiving recycling bins
that they can use for their
recyclable material, said
Waste Management
spokesperson Amy Boyson.
To launch the program,
Wildwood Mayor Ed Wolf
will toss the first full bin of
recyclables into a recycling
truck at 11:30 a.m. on Sat-
urday, Sept. 25, at the Wild-
wood Growers' Market, 100
N. Main St.
During that day, Waste
Management will have a
booth at the market from 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. for informa-
tion about recycling along
with games, giveaways and
an up close look at a Waste
Management recycling
truck.

flow rates recommended
by the water district.
The entire house is
rimmed with mesh-cov-
ered gutters with buried
downspouts that pipe rain-
water to a low area on the
property where it harm-
lessly collects with no ero-
sion of soil.
Boyce uses micro drip
system to irrigate a large
butterfly and humming
bird garden on the prop-
erty Large trees rim the
garden and produce a par-
tial shade that moves
across the flower garden in
accordance with the Sun's
position in the sky thereby
minimizing evaporation.
Toilets can be big water
wasters, said Boyce.
"Our toilets are set at 1.6
gallons and they work just
fine," Boyce said.
The Boyce home has a


"guardian" generator that
starts automatically avoid-
ing the need to acclimatize
the home after temporary
power outages.
Other green features in
the Boyce home include
LED lighting and multiple
solar tubes that direct nat-
ural light into rooms elimi-
nating the use of electric
lights much of the time.
As a master gardener,
Boyce enjoys flowers,
plants and gardens but
doesn't use a lot of water to
maintain them. He accom-
plishes this by growing
Florida-friendly species
that do not require a great
deal of irrigation.
"When we notice a little
drooping of plants, we irri-
gate them with micro-drip
hoses but we try not to
leave faucets on when they
aren't needed."
Simple things like turn-
ing the water off while we
brush our teeth makes a
big difference in water
conservation, said Boyce.


LARRY CLIFTON/Sumter County Times
The brilliant lavender and purple hues of Ruellia
Mexican petunias set against a back drop of smooth
mini-boulders front a colorful butterfly garden
shaded by sprawling oaks on the Boyces' Sumter-
ville property. Partial tree shade and the use of oc-
casional micro-drip irrigation greatly minimize the
amount of water required for the garden's Florida-
friendly plants.

dumpsters that the county
would haul away will re-
main at the current site
and he anticipates it will
generate minimal ton-
nage.
"Staff intends to present
a (Sumter Sanitation) con-
tract for your adoption
during our Sept. 28 meet-
ing in The Villages that
designates Sumter Sanita-
tion as the site for deposit-
ing Class 1 commercial
solid waste," Arnold told
commissioners.
While the county is obli-
gated to designate a waste
transfer company for com-
mercial Class 1 waste in
the county, commercial
customers and haulers
are free to use Class 1
landfills and transfer sta-
tions of their choice,


therefore the contract
with Sumter Sanitation
does not require compet-
ing bid proposals, accord-
ing to Howell.
The county will main-
tain its contract with
Waste Services Inc. and
renew the transfer sta-
tion's commercial permit
in case it needs to tem-
porarily reopen the facil-
ity for any reason.
Some employees at the
facility will be offered "re-
duced pay" positions and
others will receive sever-
ance packages, according
to a county report.
The county's solid waste
transfer station would be
operating at approxi-
mately half the 65 tons per
day required to break
even by 2011 and the re-
port states that minimum
tipping fees haulers are
charged are no longer
competitive with private
solid waste companies.

3 illegals apprehended, one at large


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

An illegal alien who escaped after
a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) offi-
cer detained him and three others
during a 2:30 a.m. traffic stop near
Wildwood last Thursday was still not
apprehended Tuesday
However, Jorge Tejeda-Barra, the
driver who was charged with human
smuggling, and two other illegal
aliens detained by the trooper dur-
ing a traffic stop at the Okahumpka
Turnpike Service Plaza last week are
in custody
Tejeda-Barra and one of the three
illegal immigrants that he was deliv-
ering to Tampa for $150 each es-
caped from the FHP officer but a
Wildwood Police officer spotted
Tejeda-Barra and apprehended him
later, according to a U.S. criminal af-
fidavit.
According to the affidavit, Tejeda-
Barra initially presented a Mexican
driver's license to the state trooper
that identified him as Edwardo Gon-
zales-Rosales.
However, after Border Patrol au-
thorities ran his prints. Tejeda-Barra
admitted to being a Mexican citizen
here illegally and also stated that he


had been deported from the U.S. on
two prior occasions. The affidavit
states that he last entered the U.S. il-
legally sometime in December 2009
near Nogales, Arizona.
The 2000 Dodge Durango SUV they
were riding in was suspected of
being used for human trafficking and
was registered to the alias name on
the license Tejeda-Barra presented
to the trooper in Wildwood.
The four suspects attempted to es-
cape from the FHP trooper who ini-
tially apprehended them as a Border
Patrol van approached the service
plaza to transport them to jail.
Two of the men were apprehended
immediately but two others, includ-
ing Tejeda-Barra, escaped into the
darkness.
Passenger Ricardo Lopez-Sanchez
was identified by Border Patrol as a
Mexican national deported from the
U.S. twice before, once at Nogales,
Arizona during August 2009, and Hi-
dalgo, Texas in July 2010.
Authorities are working to identify
the suspect still at large and the re-
maining passenger who is in custody
Even though two of the escaped
suspects, including Tejeda-Barra,
were loose in the Wildwood commu-
nity, local police were not notified by
FHP or Border Patrol until 6 a.m.,


hours after the incident occurred.
"We had no idea these guys were
out there until 6 a.m. Thursday
morning; that's when we were noti-
fied," said Wildwood Police Captain
Paul Valentino.
Despite a gap of hours between the
FHP traffic stop and Wildwood Po-
lice being notified by other agencies,
Wildwood patrol officer Doug Pelton
observed and apprehended the
SUV's driver, Tejeda-Barra.
He was still wearing a set of FHP
handcuffs on his wrist when our guy
apprehended him, Valentino said.
After Wildwood Police and Sumter
County Sheriff's Office were notified
of the escape, both agencies con-
ducted a door-to-door search.
The sheriff's office added deputies
and several K-9 units to the opera-
tion and utilized its helicopter for
surveillance.
Valentino said Officer Pelton spot-
ted Tejeda-Barra near S.R. 44 and
apprehended him.
"The operation was a success be-
cause we got the main guy, the al-
leged alien trafficker, and no one was
injured, so that's a good day,"
Valentino said.

A bad time for a


water rate increase


in Bushnell


rate increase to be implemented over three years by
Bushnell could not come at a worse time for resi-
dents.
We understand that the city hasn't raised rates since
October 2005 and that an independent water association
has been named as the entity who recommended the sub-
stantial increase, but shifting the focus to consultants is
a little like putting lipstick on the proverbial pig.
Some say the country has come out of the longest re-
cession since World War II, others say we are still in that
recession, and most agree that unemployment has been
too high, too long.
What is certain is that people are hurting and if an eco-
nomic recovery is taking place, it is a subtle one that has
left Florida with double-digit unemployment and Sumter
unemployment edging up at 9.9 percent.
We think city leaders spreading the water rate increase
over a three-year period is an excellent idea and that
structuring water rates incrementally is a fair method of
billing that encourages water conservation.
However, implementing a substantial increase in water
rates at this time is an unfortunate necessity that would
not have involved lipstick and pigs had rate increases
been spread out over more years and before a flounder-
ing economy (hopefully) bottomed out.
If a collage of empty storefronts along Main Street and
beyond is any indication, Bushnell's unemployment rate
is as ominous as that of neighboring cities and munici-
palities.
This means there are more unemployed heads of
households and single parents who are struggling to put
food on the table; now they must come up with more
money to put water on the table.
While we like the idea that city leaders are at least
spreading this increase over a few years, it still doesn't
make it any easier for users to swallow.

Need your help. I could tell
you I can't do this alone. That
would be a lie. It is more along
the lines of "misery loves com-
pany"
I want to lose 50 pounds by the
time I turn 50. That gives me a
year and three months. I know
what you are thinking. You're
wrong!
It is not plenty oftime. You have
to take into account the age/time
phenomenon. The closer you get
to 50 the quicker time flies. When
I was a teenager 24 hours was an

I am not a healthy eater. I don't
eat a lot but what I do eat is junk.
I wish I could eat fruit without
having an allergic reaction.
I get wicked indigestion from
wheat. I can't eat the food that is
good for you. It doesn't leave me
much choice. My only saving grace
is that I eat small portions. Stop
laughing! It's true. You may find it
hard to believe but I only eat one
meal a day.
When we go out to eat I can't get
over how much food other people
eat. There's no way I could eat
soup, salad and then an entree. I
order the entree and if I can fit it a
dessert. I used to be able to eat
four and a half slices of pizza. If I
finish two I have eaten a lot. I no
longer have the appetite I used to
have yet I am the heaviest I have
ever been. How did that happen?
I do know one reason why Actu-

I am on medication. I have to be
on it for life. I think 30 pounds of
the 50 I need to lose is from that.
Personally, I don't think the med-
ication is working but I listen to
my doctor and do what I am told.
Secondly, I hate exercise. Nor-
mally, I don't like to use that type
of language. I get tired thinking
about it. Stamina is my downfall. I

I am counting on you folks to be

need an excuse not to exercise call
me. I have volumes full of excuses.

Letter to the editor


Helping a family in need
This year the Ladies Auxil-
iary of Our Lady of the Waters of
St. Lawrence Catholic Church
was there when the call of the
needy was heard.
One of our parishioners and
the newest member of the
Ladies Auxiliary at our meeting
told the story of a family that
was in need of several things
before school opened for the
year 2010.
It was a unanimous vote to
help this family with three
young children ranging in ages
from 12, 7 and 5 years of age.
We collected among ourselves
school supplies along with back
packs for each child and also
donated monies to buy clothes
and shoes.
Each year the Ladies Auxil-
iary works very hard in various
fund raisers to make money We
know by our unselfish long
hours of hard work we can give
it all back to our community.

September is National
Sea Cadet Month
Manatee Division of the US
Naval Sea Cadet Corps cele-
brated its fifth anniversary in


September, the same month as
National Sea Cadet Month.
These two events were cele-
brated with an "Open Ship" fun-
day to further acquaint the
community with the program.
The Sea Cadets were founded
in 1958 by the Navy League of
the United States who still ad-
ministers the program. Cadets
have an opportunity to gain in-
formation and experience
about the maritime services
and traditions. Training re-
volve around what someone
would need to know to succeed
in the Navy, Coast Guard, Ma-
rine Corps, and Merchant
Marines. The Navy League's
mission of being the civilian ad-
vocate of the maritime services
is reinforced by familiarizing
America's youth with these
services.
Five years ago, LCDR Myron
Wambold, who had been in-
volved the Sea Cadets in the
Puget Sound area of Washing-
ton state, saw a need to reintro-
duce the program to this part of
Florida. A few of those very first
cadets are still with the division
and are the backbone of the
youth leadership. His vision
and commitment has influ-
enced the lives of dozens of
young people. He retired from


the Corps earlier this year.
With current bleak economic
conditions, parents are contact-
ing the Sea Cadets because it
gives their children an advan-
tage. Participation in Sea
Cadets gives them the opportu-
nity to develop leadership
skills, do hands-on advanced
training in various career
fields, and advanced placement
in the Navy, Coast Guard and
other branches if they decide to
enlist. Sea Cadets can compete
to go to summer orientations at
the US Naval Academy and the
Coast Guard Academy Interna-
tional training opportunities
exist as well with most of the
bill being paid for.
Recent increased support by
the Tampa Bay Council of the
Navy League for Manatee Divi-
sion has enabled them to offer
more assistance scholarships
for enrollment and training.
Local businesses this month
such as Black Diamond, Planta-
tion Inn, and Captain Dan Cly-
mer have partnered with the
Navy League to help even more.
Happy Birthday Manatee Di-
vision. Have a great National
Sea Cadet Month. For more in-
formation about Sea Cadets go

from public donations.
This is where our story begins.
The Knights of Columbus Council
12544 Our Lady of the Waters of St.
Lawrence Catholic Church of
Bushnell has a Tootsie Roll Drive
every year where the men and
their wives give up many week-
ends collecting donations from
charitable people that would
come to shop at Walmart and Winn
Dixie. We don our bright yellow
aprons which say Knights of
Columbus Please Help the Hand-
icapped with pockets that hold
handfuls oftootsie rolls.
We greet you with a big warm
smile and hold our cans in one
hand that would hold the monies
given for contributions and free
tootsie rolls for anyone that would
like to have one in the other. I can
still remember standing out in
front of Walmart on a freezing
morning collecting, all the while
thinking of my nice warm house
and fresh coffee but knowing that
our sacrifices would be helping
someone in need. During tough
economic times many individuals
searched in their pockets and
gave all they could afford. One mo-
ment that stands in our hearts is
when a pick up truck came by
after going to McDonalds and
bought us hot chocolate and apple
pies. It just makes your heart leap


with joy for the goodness we can
give to one another.
Our drive enabled the Knights of
Columbus to present Ms. Maggie
Brock of SCARC with a check in
the amount of $1,050 and the
Ladies Auxiliary presented an ad-
ditional check for $400. So with
that said, make sure you look for us
this year, we are the ones with the
bright yellow aprons handing out
tootsie rolls with one hand and a
cans in the other hand asking for
your donations. We express out sin-
cere thanks to Walmart and Winn
Dixie for their participation in our
annual Tootsie Roll Drive. May
God continue to bless the Knights
of Columbus, the Ladies Auxiliary
and all that gave to help our fellow
citizens enjoy a better life.

Higher water rates proposed for Bushnell


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

Bushnell city council
members recently dis-
cussed a nearly 31 percent
increase in water rates
spread over three years
with increases ending in
October 2012.
A final public hearing on
the rate increase is sched-
uled for 6 p.m., Monday,


Oct. 4.
Because the proposed
increases are incremental,
homes using the most
water will be charged the
higher rates in increments
according to usage, said
Susan K. Noell, city cus-
tomer affairs representa-
tive.
The increases being dis-
cussed equal about 11 per-
cent the first year and


The increases being discussed equal
about 11 percent the first year and about
9 percent the following two years


about 9 percent the follow-
ing two years, Noell said.
While city meters meas-
ure water usage by the gal-
lon, the city bills per 1,000
gallons used, meaning
4,999 gallons is billed as
4,000 gallons with the 999


gallons carried forward to
the next billing period.
Because the rate in-
creases are incremental, a
residential customer using
18,000 gallons in a billing
cycle would pay $2.70 per
thousand for the first 5,999


gallons, $3.20 per thousand
for the next 7,999 gallons,
and $3.70 per thousand for
the last 3,999 gallons used
that month.
Noell said that the city
plans to split the increase
over three years basing it
incrementally so the rate
hike will have less of an
impact on customers.
The Florida Water Asso-
ciation analyzes the city's


costs verses rate charged
for water in making the
recommendation, accord-
ing to Noell.
The city hasn't increased
rates since 2005 and the
Florida Water Association
hasn't accessed the need
for an increase in years, ac-
cording to Noell.
Commercial rates are
also set to increase in sim-
ilar percentages.


Sumter SPCA fosters herd of unwanted horses


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

Claudia Labbe and Shari
Evans, representing the Hu-
mane Society SPCA of
Sumter County, were pro-
moting pet adoptions Mon-
day in Bushnell. Inside a
small cage Labbe carried
was a young adult Siamese
cat that one might expect to
find her way into a perma-
nent home soon. However,
economic conditions have
impacted adoptions.
Labbe said the Humane
Society is currently caring
for 29 horses and ideally only
has four to six.
"When the economy is
weak, people who have more
horses than they are able to
feed and care for may end up
neglecting them, and we're
seeing a lot of that now," said
Labbe.
Shari Evans, an animal
cruelty investigator who
works with the Humane So-
ciety and is a coordinator
with Sumter Disaster Ani-
mal Response Team (DART),
said a proposed horse track
near the Marion County line
could exacerbate the prob-
lem because people who
can't afford to be horse own-
ers will start breeding them.
"Amateurs don't under-
stand that legitimate breed-
ers spend tens of thousands
of dollars and only one out of
a hundred race horses be-


comes a winner," said Evans.
Bobbie Miller from Bobbie
Miller Training Center in
Marion County works with
the folks who foster our
horses, said Evans
"She teaches the folks who
adopt a horse how to care for
them, detect obvious disease
or injury, brush their coats
and maintain their health,"
Evans said.
Evans, who earned re-
spect of many in the commu-
nity by working to ease the
suffering of neglected horses
sometimes works with
deputies on abused animal
cases and reports on animal
abuse for the Humane Soci-
ety
Sometimes it's funny to
see a big deputy in a freshly
pressed uniform trying to
hold on to a frightened horse
that got out of a pasture,
Evans said. It's not for every-
body, but they always do the
best they can.
Poorly maintained fences
that allow cattle and horses
to run free across highways
are a danger to everyone, ac-
cording to Evans.
Evans showcases a good
sense of humor in her anec-
dotes that helps her get
through the emotional stress
of dealing with animal cru-
elty
Evans said a mare was
found wandering a County
Road 471 in the Green
Swamp area and Sumter Hu-
mane Society was able to

find a foster home for it, a
woman who lives near
Evans.
One day, Evan's 17-year-
old son, Nathan, was asked
to stay with the "still very
skinny" mare because she
wouldn't get up and Evans
and the fostering woman
were away.
"I got this call and it was
Nathan and he sounded so
upset," said Evans.
It turned out that "Cin-
derella" was pregnant when
Evans found her but so
skinny that no one realized
she was expecting.


When the foal was visible,
Nathan told her by phone
that he didn't mind taking
care of neglected animals,
but he drew the line at deliv-
ering horses, said Evans as a
wide grin stretched across
her face.
"Nathan waited for the
woman who fostered Cin-
derella to come home, but
the foal got there first,"
Evans said. "We named him
Champ."
"Nathan is a big guy and
he walked up to the woman
who had fostered Cinderella
with little "Champ" in his


arms and asked her to take
him because he didn't know
what else to do," said Evans.
After the happy ending of
the Cinderella anecdote, the
tone turned serious as Labbe
and Evans spoke on the cru-
elty involved with leaving
animals chained in yards.
The women talked about
cases where dog's limbs had
to be amputated after be-
coming tangled in ropes and
chains, and chained dogs
under a hot sun without
shade and dying from thirst.
The Sumter Humane Soci-


ety representatives said the
organization, as well as
adopting out spayed and
nurtured pets, is involved
with cruelty prevention,
public pet education, animal
rescue and fostering, Disas-
ter Animal Rescue Team
(DART) and conducts a Kib-
bles on Wheels food pro-

tions, fostering or wishing to

Lessons from my knees


Nancy
Kennedy

Special to the
Times

A s I was on my knees
one Saturday after-
oon, I had an
epiphany.
Lest you think I was on my
knees praying, I wasn't, al-
though Lord knows I should
have been. And it wasn't so
much an epiphany as it was
a random thought.
My husband and I were
painting, he up on a ladder,
me on my knees with a brush
painting the bottom of the
walls along the edging.
My random thought was
that everything in life illus-
trates Bible truth, as some-
one once said. On that
Saturday, with a paintbrush
in my hand, I thought about
how Jesus talked about
counting the cost of follow-
ing him.
He said a person who sets
out to build a tower doesn't
just start building it, but first
determines if he has enough
money to finish it. "Other-
wise, you might complete
only the foundation before
running out of money, and
then everyone would laugh
at you" (Luke 14:29, my par-
aphrase).
My husband and I had
taken careful measurements
of this particular room to de-
termine how much it would
cost to paint it. Since it was-
n't our room, we wanted to
make sure we estimated ac-
curately.
However, even though our
mathematical calculations
were accurate, we didn't
count on the walls sucking
up primer like it was a
thirsty kid drinking a straw-


berry lemonade slushie on a
sweltering summer day.
So, instead of two gallons
of primer, it took three and
two gallons of the colored
top coat, "Comet Dust," in-
stead of one.
Earlier, when we were at
The Home Depot getting the
third gallon of primer, I told
my husband about "House
Crashers," a TV show I've
been watching on the DIY
cable channel.
The host of the show, gen-
eral contractorJosh Temple,
hangs around home im-
provement stores talking to
people about their home im-
provement projects.
Without giving away what
he's up to, he tries to get
homeowners to let him come
home with them. He'll say,
"I'm a contractor and I'm
looking for work Let me fol-
low you home to take a
look."
Most people say no, be-
cause, well, would you let
some stranger follow you
home? But someone always
agrees, and once Josh gets
there he tells the home-
owner he'll be back bright
and early in the morning
with a bunch of contractor
friends and they're going to
totally redo whatever room
the person's working on.
It usually involves tearing
down walls and installing
state of the art, super tricked
out windows and doors and
flooring and appliances.
So, when we were at The
Home Depot I kept hoping
Josh was there and we could
pretend to not know who he
is and we could agree to
have him come and redo the
room we were working on.
That, however, didn't hap-
pen.
But as I was on my knees I
thought about how that's
what Jesus does to people.
You're going about your reg-
ular life and he just sort of


invades your space (minus
the camera crew, of course)
and says, "Let me come
home with you."
Lots of people say no, but
some say yes, even though in
the back of their minds
they're thinking, "This is
nuts and I might regret it,
but something inside me
says I should."
And then he comes and he
knocks out a wall or two and
in the end you're made
brand new, although with
"House Crashers" the work
takes only three days and
with Jesus it takes a lifetime.
Also, when I was on my
knees painting I thought
about how I originally
thought I could paint that
room by myself, but I could-
n't. I'm not tall enough or
skilled enough, and my hus-
band is quite skilled and
way more knowledgeable -
and taller than me.
I thought about how some-
one needed to be in charge
and my husband is better at
it than I am and that I actu-
ally prefer being the helper.
I thought about how there
can only be one God per uni-
verse, and as I kept getting
my section of the wall
drippy, I was glad that God is
God and I'm not since if I
can't even paint a room
alone, I surely can't run the
world.
I also thought about being
on my knees and that God
often talks to people while
they're down on the floor
Even if they're just kneel-
ing to paint and not neces-
sarily to pray.

Out to pastor


Are you ready to grumble?


James
Snyder

Special to the
Times

Normally (depending
on which definition
of normal you are
using), I am not given to
much grumbling. I do
admit to every now and
then exercising my right to
complain a little, but it is
not anything to write home
about.
If you would inquire with
the Gracious Mistress of
the Parsonage she might
have a different opinion al-
together. It seems that the
only thing we really agree
on is that we do not agree
on too much. Our biggest
disagreement would be in
this area of grumbling.
Just the other day I was
exercising my First
Amendment right when my
wife looked at me and said,
"Are you grumbling
again?"
What is a husband to do?
If I answer in the negative,
she gives me one of those
looks that pierces asunder
to the soul. She has done
this so much that I can hon-
estly say that I have a holey
soul. Then again, if I an-
swer in the affirmative I
acknowledge that she is
right and I am grumbling.
So I do not know what
grumbling really is or if,
like my wife insists, I am
the all-time record holding
champion of the art of
grumbling. As far as I am
concerned, I just have an
opinion and like sharing
that opinion with all and
sundry
To develop the fine art of
grumbling there are rules.
For example, some things


are off limit. I never grum-
ble about my wife's cooking
or keeping the house for
the simple reason that she
is the immaculate concep-
tion of effectiveness when
it comes to those house-
hold chores and duties.
After all, I never complain
about someone who pre-
pares my meals and has
control of the ingredients
that go into my meal.
There is one area that is
a completely free-for-all
when it comes to grum-
bling. That area is simply
the political arena. Every
United States citizen has a
free pass when it comes to
complaining about politi-
cians. After all, we pay our
taxes, usually on time.
This brings me to my first
area of grumbling when it
comes to politics. Why is it
that so many elected to of-
fice forget about paying
their income tax? I know it
only comes once a year,
every year and the taxes
are deducted on our pay-
roll, but everyone knows
how easy it is to forget to
pay taxes. I am seriously
considering running for
some political office, any
office will do, just for the
benefits; huge salary, enor-
mous retirement benefits,
the rest-of-my-life health
care and I can forget to pay
my income tax. What other
profession offers so much
for so little brainpower?
Another area of grum-
bling has to do with telling
the truth. What other pro-
fession is built upon lie
after lie after lie. Then
when caught in a down-
right lie, you explain it
away by saying, "That was
taken out of context." Or, "I
did not have sex with that
woman."
In just about every pro-
fession, as far as I can think
of, except used-car sales-
men and televangelists,


there are penalties to pay
if you tell a lie. However, in
the area of the professional
politician you cannot climb
the ladder in politics un-
less you are an expert Lies-
man. Moreover, you do not
have to be that good of a
liar. I am thinking about
writing a song titled, "The
Washington Liesman," and
have Glen Campbell sing it
for us.
This, as far as I can un-
derstand, is a bipartisan
problem. Both sides of the
aisle have developed un-
paralleled expertise in this
area. And the American
taxpayer has paid hand-
somely for this accomplish-
ment.
That is exactly why this
is fertile area for profes-
sional grumbling. The
motto of the Professional
Political Grumbler Associ-
ation is, "I am neither a Re-
publican nor a Democrat, I
am simply against anyone
in office."
We are now encroaching
the new election cycle. All
these election cycles have
me in a dizzy frame of
mind. I am not sure whom
to vote for this time. I am
thinking about starting a
write in campaign for Mr.
Ed, the talking horse. He
had more sense in his left
hoof than any 97 politi-
cians combined. At least
there were periods when
Mr. Ed would not talk. Try-
ing to find time when a
politician is not talking is
about as frustrating as pay-
ing your taxes on April 15.
No wonder politicians are
concerned about climate
change. All that hot air in
Washington.
The only good thing
about any election cycle is
that it gives me opportunity
to vent some grumbling not
associated with my wife.

Making This Right

Restoration

Health and Safety

Wildlife


I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach


No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.

PAGE 8 SUMTER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2010


A group of Blueberry Hill winter residents earned their certification last year. They're shown here at the end of the course.




Splint a leg, help a neighbor,



learn something new


CERT members are given a backpack with
safety equipment including a helmet, gog-
gles, vest and gloves.


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

What happens if there's a crisis in your
home if a fire breaks out or someone
breaks an arm and needs a splint?
What happens if someone needs CPR?
Are you trained? Can you handle it?
Then think free and take a look at
CERT it's a program designed "to
teach the public how to take care of
themselves as well as their neighbors in
times of disaster," said Brian Gibson of
Sumter County Emergency Management.
CERT stands for Community Emer-
gency Response Team and members take
a 21-hour course that teaches everything
from dealing with household hazards to
recognizing disaster stress in people.
Gibson said they even give a little
search and rescue training during the
course, teaching residents how to search
for additional victims in disasters.
"And there's no age requirement," Gib-
son said, adding that they have 400 CERT
members in the senior citizen community
of The Villages.
Once they finish the actual CERT
course, there's an advanced class that
they can opt take. That's where residents


get the CPR and AED (Automated Exter-
nal Defibrillator) certification. Good for
two years, the training is approved by the
American Heart Association.
CERT is new to Sumter County and
one of several things the emergency man-
agement team is providing in services to
the community and the state. Under the
leadership of Judd Wright, they're doing
several training in various areas.
CERT was implemented last year and
so far, along with The Villages residents,
winter residents at Blueberry Hill in
Bushnell and some Chamber of Com-
merce members have taken the course.
Gibson said they're looking for a good
response from the community, hoping
that residents consider, "If we actually
got hit in the county with a disaster and
you think about the number of emer-
gency responders who need to get to
every citizen at once, it would be impos-
sible."
Their first class for this season is
scheduled at the United Methodist
Church of Coleman and is open to the
public. Class starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday,
Oct. 5, and residents can just show up
that night, they don't need to pre-register.
"It's actually a 21-hour program," he


said, noting they'll start with a three-hour
class the first night and work on schedul-
ing the rest of the course from that night.
They typically offer the class in five
segments.
At the same time, they're working to
schedule other groups. Gibson said
they'll work a class for groups of 10 or
more and urges citizens to contact them
at 569-6000 for more information.
It can be businesses, organizations or
groups like the RV parks.
Once they graduate, the residents are
a part of the county's CERT team and can
even be "activated" during disaster
times.
And there's more free stuff too each
CERT team member gets a free backpack
filled with a first aid kit, safety helmet,
safety vest, goggles and gloves.
Once they finish the actual CERT
course, there's an advanced class that
they can opt take, where they would
learn CPR and AED (Automated Exter-
nal Defibrillator). The certification is
good for two years and is approved by the
American Heart Association. Normally,
that training costs $25 to $30 per person,
but through the program, it's provided
free.


Citizens learn how splint, wrap and deal with house-
hold hazards during the course. Here, residents of
Blueberry Hill worked on wrapping and splinting.


The CERT training involves learning to use a fire extinguisher to put out a fire.

Full Text:
ARTICLE VII
FINANCE AND TAXATION
SECTION 3. Taxes; exemptions.--
(a) All property owned by a municipality and used exclusively by it for municipal or
public purposes shall be exempt from taxation. A municipality, owning property outside
the municipality, may be required by general law to make payment to the taxing unit in
which the property is located. Such portions of property as are used predominantly for
educational, literary, scientific, religious or charitable purposes may be exempted by
general law from taxation.
(b) There shall be exempt from taxation, cumulatively, to every head of a family
residing in this state, household goods and personal effects to the value fixed by general
law, not less than one thousand dollars, and to every widow or widower or person who is
blind or totally and permanently disabled, property to the value fixed by general law not
less than five hundred dollars.
(c) Any county or municipality may, for the purpose of its respective tax levy and
subject to the provisions of this subsection and general law, grant community and
economic development ad valorem tax exemptions to new businesses and expansions of
existing businesses, as defined by general law. Such an exemption may be granted only
by ordinance of the county or municipality, and only after the electors of the county or
municipality voting on such question in a referendum authorize the county or
municipality to adopt such ordinances. An exemption so granted shall apply to
improvements to real property made by or for the use of a new business and
improvements to real property related to the expansion of an existing business and shall
also apply to tangible personal property of such new business and tangible personal
property related to the expansion of an existing business. The amount or limits of the
amount of such exemption shall be specified by general law. The period of time for
which such exemption may be granted to a new business or expansion of an existing
business shall be determined by general law. The authority to grant such exemption shall
expire ten years from the date of approval by the electors of the county or municipality,
and may be renewable by referendum as provided by general law.
(d) Any county or municipality may, for the purpose of its respective tax levy and
subject to the provisions of this subsection and general law, grant historic preservation ad

shall be determined by general law.
(e) By general law and subject to conditions specified therein, twenty-five thousand
dollars of the assessed value of property subject to tangible personal property tax shall be
exempt from ad valorem taxation.
(f) There shall be granted an ad valorem tax exemption for real property dedicated in
perpetuity for conservation purposes, including real property encumbered by perpetual
conservation easements or by other perpetual conservation protections, as defined by
general law.
(g) By general law and subject to the conditions specified therein, each person who
receives a homestead exemption as provided in section 6 of this article; who was a
member of the United States military or military reserves, the United States Coast Guard
or its reserves, or the Florida National Guard; and who was deployed during the
preceding calendar year on active duty outside the continental United States, Alaska, or
Hawaii in support of military operations designated by the legislature shall receive an
additional exemption equal to a percentage of the taxable value of his or her homestead
property. The applicable percentage shall be calculated as the number of days during the
preceding calendar year the person was deployed on active duty outside the continental
United States, Alaska, or Hawaii in support of military operations designated by the
legislature divided by the number of days in that year.
ARTICLE XII
SCHEDULE

No. 4
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE II, SECTION 7
(Initiative)

Ballot Title:
REFERENDA REQUIRED FOR ADOPTION AND AMENDMENT OF LOCAL
GOVERNMENT COMPREHENSIVE LAND USE PLANS.


Financial Impact Statement:
The amendment's impact on local government expenditures cannot be estimated
precisely. Local governments will incur additional costs due to the requirement to
conduct referenda in order to adopt comprehensive plans or amendments thereto. The
amount of such costs depends upon the frequency, timing and method of the referenda,
and includes the costs of ballot preparation, election administration, and associated
expenses. The impact on state government expenditures will be insignificant.

proposed plan or plan amendment shall be subject to vote of the electors of the local
government by referendum, following preparation by the local planning agency.
consideration by the governing body as provided by general law, and notice thereof in a
local newspaper of general circulation. Notice and referendum will be as provided by
general law. This amendment shall become effective immediately upon approval by the
electors of Florida.
For purposes of this subsection:
1. "Local government" means a county or municipality.
2. "Local government comprehensive land use plan" means a plan to guide and control

Ten Year Plan to address homelessness


Senator Mike Fasano to
open the meeting of lead-
ers from Citrus, Hernando,
Lake and Sumter counties
who have been invited to
learn about developing a
community-wide plan to
address homelessness.
This meeting will be at
the Department of Chil-
dren and Families office at
1601 West Gulf Atlantic
Highway, Wildwood,
Florida at 2 p.m., Thursday,


Sept. 23.
For years, the Depart-
ment of Housing and
Urban Development
(HUD) has encouraged
every community to de-
velop a Ten Year Plan to
End Homelessness.
Many communities
throughout the country
have developed their plans
years ago, and this has put
them in a better position to
secure HUD as well as


state funding.
Mid Florida Homeless
Coalition, which serves
Citrus, Hernando, Lake
and Sumter counties, has
recognized the need for
this plan as it directly af-
fects homeless funding
sources for our communi-
ties.
In addition, these plans
help develop collaborative
efforts amongst organiza-
tions that strive to keep


families and individuals
from losing their homes
and helping those without
homes to get into perma-
nent housing.
Mr. Eugene Williams of
Pasco County Community
Development Division and
Reverend Dan Campbell,
president of the Coalition
for the Homeless of Pasco
County will present why
this is important, what they


have learned through this
process, and the steps to be
taken to move our plan for-
ward.
They were instrumental
in the development of
Pathways to Permanence:
The 10-Year Plan to End
Homelessness in Pasco
County.

Sumter County
unemployment
rate rises
Sumter County's un-
employment edged up
from 9.8 percent in July
to 9.9 percent in August,
according to a Florida
Agency for Workforce
Innovation (AWI) report
released last Friday
Unemployment for
the state also rose from
11.5 percent in July to

The glimmer of good
news in the report is
that Florida's annual
job growth rate is up 0.4
percent from the same
month last year.
"Historically, mixed
signals from economic
indicators during the
bottom of a recession
are common until the
economy recovers," said

schedules these revisions to take effect upon approval by the electors of this state and to
operate retroactively to the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year.

Pasco gains revenge, wins 37-14 Player ofthe


week


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

There was no upset this
time.
Dade City Pasco High
School beat South Sumter
37-14 Friday night at WE
Edwards Stadium.
Pasco (3-0) was avenging
a 32-7 upset by South
Sumter (0-3) in 2009. The
victory was the season
highlight for South
Sumter and served as a
wakeup call for Pasco last
year. Pasco won most of its
games after the upset
while the Raiders went on
a losing streak en route to
a 3-7 season.
South Sumter managed
two scores. Quarterback
Ian Papenheim scored on
a one-yard quarterback
sneak in the third quarter.
Jared Bates booted the
extra point.
Backup Raiders quar-
terback Clay Simmons


Dade City Pasco High School beat
South Sumter 37-14 Friday night
at WE Edwards Stadium.


tossed a 24-yard touch-
down pass to Javonte
Everett in the fourth quar-
ter.
Pasco took a 20-0 lead in
the first quarter.
Pasco's defense held
South Sumter to just 30
yards total offense in the
first half
Just two years ago, the
Pirates went deep into the
playoffs and this year's
team looks like it has the
horses to repeat.
Pasco quarterback
Jacob Guy completed 11 of
17 passes for 211 yards
and two touchdown
passes. Receiver Mike
Clower scored on a 49-
yard touchdown pass just
before halftime. Clower
had two catches for 104


yards.
Pasco's Trey Dudley-
Giles scored two touch-
downs. One was on a
64-yard punt return. The
second was on a four-yard
scoring pass from Guy.
Pasco's Janarion Grant
ran five times for 91 yards.
"They always have a
group of kids who run
well," said South Sumter
High head coach Inman
Sherman. "They were
quite fast. They were well
coached.
"There were times we
played real well. Defen-
sively, we played ex-
tremely well. Offensively,
there were times we
played well."
The Raiders are hoping
that a stellar senior defen-


sive back can play this
week
"We are hopingJamarco
McKinnon will be re-
leased today," Sherman
said. "He had a whiplash
neck injury against Ever-
glades.
There are no breaks on
the brutal South Sumter
High schedule and this
week, Citra North Marion
High brings a lot of talent
to a game Friday at 7:30
p.m. in Bushnell.
"They beat us pretty bad
last year," Sherman said.
"They are fast, aggressive.
They are a real solid qual-
ity football team. They
have several quality play-
ers. They have a running
back who is lightning
fast."
The following week,
South Sumter faces tradi-
tionally one of the state
powers in Ocala Trinity
Catholic in Marion
County.


Stephen "Yogi" Davis is on a roll this season as he
earns the "Player of the Week" title again. It was five
solos, two assists, four tackles for a loss and three
quarterback sacks during the Raiders' Friday night
game against Pasco. "He is playing great right now,"
said Raiders' Coach Inman Sherman. Davis is the
son of Felicia Lyons of Bushnell. Davis, 18, wears the
number 79 jersey for South Sumter and is a defen-
sive and offensive tackle.

LSCC Foundation kicks off its 2010 Annual Campaign


The Lake-Sumter Com-
munity College Founda-
tion, Inc. kicked off its
2010 Annual Campaign:
Changing Lives..Building
Futures on Sept. 7, with
the goal to raise $200,000.
"The Changing Lives
and Building Futures
campaign goes far beyond
raising funds, it's a
broader goal to help es-
tablish a stronger culture
of giving that affords more
opportunities for the stu-
dents of LSCC," said
Rosanne Brandeburg, Ex-
ecutive Director.
During the past 30
years, more than 10,000
students have received a
scholarship from the
LSCC Foundation, Inc.
Many have graduated and

have had a significant im-
pact on their fields of ex-
pertise, their families and
their communities.
"Our donors are in-
creasingly more aware
that a college education
from LSCC has positive
ripple effects for genera-
tions to come in our com-
munity. Because of our
generous donors, many of
these students are where
they are today because of
a Lake-Sumter Commu-
nity College Foundation
Scholarship, and you can
be a part of this positive
change by making a dona-
tion to the 2010 Annual
Campaign. "


The 2010 Annual Cam-
paign provides financial
assistance for need based
and merit based scholar-
ships to help students on
the path to a college edu-
cation and a successful ca-
reer.
As we move forward in
these challenging eco-
nomic times, LSCC will
continue to experience
enrollment growth result-
ing in more students seek-
ing financial assistance
from the LSCC Founda-
tion, Inc. with the hopes to
achieve their dream of a
college education. Finan-
cial donations from the
community are what


make the difference in a
student's life because
more than half the stu-
dents enrolled at LSCC do
not qualify for other forms
of financial aid.
The LSCC Foundation,
Inc. Board of Directors is
leading the annual cam-
paign under the direction
Lori Baker, Isaac Deas,
Jim Judge and Reda Stew-
art. Each year the LSCC
Foundation raises funds
from friends and support-
ers to help keep education
at Lake-Sumter Commu-
nity College affordable
and to ensure educational
excellence for all stu-
dents.


"We are extremely
grateful for the tremen-
dous level of support
Lake-Sumter Community
College receives from its
alumni and friends, cor-
porations, foundations
and many organizations,"
said Brandeburg.
"Private support is very
important to the mission
of the college, and the
generosity of these donors
benefits every student,
faculty and staff member,
and user of LSCC's serv-
ices."

year's campaign, dona-

Some things fishy in Lake Panasoffkee


Greetings from Tracy's
Point Fishing Lodge
The fishing has been
pretty decent this past
week
The following is a sur-
vey done for a 5 day pe-
riod ending Sunday,
Sept. 19:
Bass Anglers on the
lake- 98
Bass Anglers surveyed
-56
Bass caught 123
Bass Released 97
Believe it or not we
were unable to locate
any pan fishermen. This
surprises me as you can
literally catch Bluegill
until your arms is tired
off of the shores at
Tracy's Point.
In any event the follow-
ing are tournament re-
sults for Tracy's Point
Fishing Lodge during
this past week ending:
Crossroads Bassmas-


In closing, I pre-
dict bass fishing to
continue to be
good this coming
week.
ters out of Ocala held on
Saturday, Sept. 18:
First place went to
Steve and Joe Dresbach
with 5 fish weighing in at
20.75 pounds (nice job
guys).
Second place went to
Mark O'Steen and Jeff
Remington with five fish
totaling 18.90 pounds.
They also won the big
bass award with a nice
fish weighing in at 5.98
pounds.
Captain Neal Bedfords
Father and Son tourna-
ment took place Satur-
day evening. They only
pay out for first place so
there are no reports or


information other than
the first place person
which is as follows:
First place went to
Steve and Kamron Harri-
son with 5 fish weighing
in at 13.00 pounds.
That's it for tourna-
ment fishing other than
for those interested we
will be hosting the state
"Firefighters Tour
Games" Bass tournament
this coming Thursday,
Sept. 23. Weigh in is at 3
p.m. so swing by for some
action if you have a mo-
ment.
In closing, I predict
bass fishing to continue
to be good this coming
week. While there
weren't many folks pan
fishing this past week
you can count on catch-
ing some nice bluegill at
Tracy's Point I guaran-
tee it.

College Paul P Williams Fine
Arts Auditorium located at
9501 U.S. Highway 441 and
College Drive.
The series includes two
fully staged operas, one light-
hearted Broadway Review, a
Tribute to Mario Lanza, and
a Spring Show of scenes from
the some of the most popular
operas and operettas.
The new five-part season
will be inaugurated with the
areas most talked-about con-
cert and social event, New
Sounds of Broadway on Sat-
urday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. and
Sunday, Oct. 17 at 3 p.m. This
fabulous Broadway review

anteed to please, 'cause
everybody loves Broadway!
Bring the whole family and
capture the true meaning of
the holidays with Amahl and
the Night Visitors. This
poignant yet light-hearted
opera features glorious


music, colorful costumes,
amusing characters, and
beautiful singing. It's a heart-
warming story of a crippled
shepherd boy, his destitute
mother, and their encounter
with the three star-guided
kings. A timeless and inspir-
ing tale of how faith, charity,
unselfish love and good
deeds can work miracles.
Sung in English, Amahl and
the Night Visitors appeals
equally to both young and
old, to opera aficionados and
to first-time opera-goers.
It is one of those rare the-
atrical masterpieces that en-
gage adults as fully as

a famous opera star and leg-
endary beauty, finds her

forced to resort to violent
measures to rescue her lover,
Mario, who has been trapped
in the web of the licentious
Scarpia, the Chief of Police,
who also desires her. Puc-
cini's sensuous melodies and
astounding conclusion atop


the Castello San Angelo will

God," are still popular fifty

movies: The Great Caruso,
The Student Prince, Sere-
nade, and That Midnight
Kiss, to name but a few, be-

Local student attends annual Florida Youth Leadership Forum


Aspiring lawyers spend
years reviewing case stud-
ies and observing court-
room protocol before
finally reaching that satis-
fying moment when they
can finally practice law.
For Leah Haefner, a 17-
year-old student at South
Sumter High School, that's
only the beginning. After
passing the bar exam,


Haefner wants to be an at-
torney for the Florida De-
partment of Children and
Families (DCF) a spe-
cialized type of legal coun-
sel that requires years of
experience and hard work.
In addition to her inter-
est in legal affairs, Haefner
has a passion for social
work and having the ability
to assist families in crisis.


Diagnosed with a specific
learning disability at the
age of 11 that challenges
her reading skills, a career
as an attorney at DCF
would allow Leah to
achieve both of these goals.
"I have been a member
of teen court for five years
and that sparked my hopes
of becoming an attorney,"
said Haefner. "My main


goal for the future is being
able to support myself
while doing something I
care about."
For four days last month,
Haefner participated in
the 2010 Florida Youth
Leadership Forum with
nearly 50 other delegates
from across the state. The
forum has been held annu-
ally for the past 11 years in


Tallahassee and is hosted
by The Able Trust, a non-
profit organization dedi-
cated to ensuring fair
employment opportunities
for Florida's population
with disabilities.
It is designed to teach
students with disabilities
about personal leadership
through workshops, social
activities, and mentoring


opportunities.
While at YLF, Haefner
was able to meet with
Judge George Richards of
the 20th Judicial Circuit in
Florida during a career
fair.
The fair is held yearly at
the forum to offer insight to
delegates on a variety of
professional fields.

Looking at my tally sheet
for the upcoming midterm
elections, my mouth is wa-
tering. Never has there
been a time in the history
of the United States of
America when there was
more to grumble about in
the area politics. This has
to be a grumbler's haven.


The event is set for Satur-
day through Monday, Dec.
11 to 13. Vendor spots are
$40 plus tax. That fee is the
total for all three days.
Crafters, call 352-793-2750
to reserve your vending
spot today! Shoppers, start
saving to buy those unique
Christmas gifts.
Wildwood Growers'
market
Everyone has to eat,
right? Why not eat food
that is good for you, fresh
from the farm or the ocean
and conveniently brought
to you by the City of Wild-
wood each Saturday morn-
ing. By purchasing your
weekly produce, seafood,
cheese, snacks and baked
goods from the growers'
market, you are helping
support our local economy
and hard working farm


This time it is like trying
to pick through a barrel of
rotten apples. There has to
be a good apple some-
where, but Lands O Lib-
erty, by the time you find
one it has begun to rot.
I had been thinking
about how blessed our na-
tion has been and thought
of what the Scripture says.
"Blessed is the nation
whose God is the LORD;
and the people whom he
hath chosen for his own in-
heritance." (Psalms 33:12


families.
Come purchase a one-of-
a-kind piece of art or craft
item from our local arti-
sans. Enjoy the music as
you meet your neighbors
and new and old friends
around the fountain. Snack
on a hot dog, kettle korn,
sweet roll or homemade
ice cream as you stroll
around the beautiful
grounds of city hall.
Wildwood Growers' mar-
ket is the place for our
community to gather, to
learn, to relax. See you Sat-
urday morning. Our loca-
tion is 100 N Main St.
(Rt.301) and we are open
year round from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m., every Saturday
Please call Rich Sopko,
market manager for any in-
formation you might need.
I always have free space

Youngster helps stop animal cruelty


Linda
Graves
Humane
Society


T hirteen-year-old
Daniel Hickey, Jr.
was witness to an
act of cruelty.
Daniel jumped into ac-
tion when he witnessed a
small dog being thrown
from a truck. The terri-
fied little chi-mix almost
ran into on-coming traf-
fic. In hot pursuit of the
dog, Daniel, along with
Sheri Evans, Humane
Society/SPCA animal
cruelty investigator, fol-
lowed the dog until she
turned into a residential
area. There, Daniel
jumped from the car and
caught the dog in a resi-
dent's front yard.
"I couldn't believe any-
one would do that," said
Daniel.
The little chihuahua is
recovering from road
rash while in the care of
the Humane
Society/SPCA.
Daniel resides in the
Croom-A-Coochee area
of Sumter County. His
whole family has been
active volunteers for the
Humane Society/SPCA
and Sumter Disaster An-
imal Response Team.
Both Daniel and his
sisters have assisted in
the Humane
Society/SPCA's "Big Fix"
events, which offers free
pet spay and neuter to
low income families. As a
volunteer for Sumter
Disaster Animal Re-
sponse Team, Daniel

animals.
He is always helpful
and polite, and an impor-
tant part of the team.
If you witness an act of


violence toward an ani-
mal that is in progress,
call 911.
Then call the Humane
Society/SPCA or Animal
Control. If you see an an-
imal that is suffering


from neglect, starving, or
has no shelter, call in
your complaint to the
Humane Society/SPCA at
793-9117 or Animal Con-
trol at 793-1470.
Sheri Evans advises to


be observant, get license
tag numbers, or a de-
scription of a vehicle or
person involved in the
crime.
No person or animal
should suffer from acts of


cruelty or neglect. Ani-
mal cruelty is a crime in
Florida, and is punish-
able by law.
Help stop the suffer-
ing, be a voice for the an-
imals and call for help.
