On the


circuit

LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

As different as Clark
Kent and Superman, 5th
Circuit Court Judge
William Hallman and
"Bud" Hallman. cham-
pion steer wrestler, are
two very different per-
sonas rolled up in one
six-foot-four. 56-year-old
frame.
"Physical. things like
running and steer
wrestling frees endor-
phins and relieves stress.
Exercise keeps me fo-
cused on working out
life's problems," says
Hallman.
The judge was recently
judged Steer Wrestling
Champion of the 2009
Dodge Circuit Finals
Rodeo after besting
much younger cowboys
with a three-steer aver-
age of 16.5 seconds.
Hallman says he con-
siders the law to be his
first priority after family:
however, he was a ranch
cowboy and traveled the
rodeo circuit long before
he practiced law.
Unlike Superman.
Hallman did not get his
rodeo skills or his judi-
cial acumen from alien
sources.
His father , William
Henry Hallman II. w\as
an attorney and a
rancher - and his
mother, Helen Renfroe
Hallman, was from the
Red Cattle Company clan

BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County Times
Barbara Shiflet was hired to manage the county's li-
brary system. She comes from the Hernando County
system and has been in the Central Florida area
since 1976.


County hires new librarian


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Barbara Shiflet did a
short stint in a law\ enforce-
ment office, moving be-
tween Hernando and
Marion counties before
taking a part-time job in a
library in 1982. It was those
few hours weekly that
launched her career.
"After law enforcement, I
kloew the library was a bet-
ter fit for me," she said
And that's where she
stayed - returning to
school to get her master's
degree in library science
in 1999. She worked her
way up through the ranks
in Hernando County and
was recently hired to man-
age Sumter County's li-
brary system.
She is the oldest of four
children in a family that


traveled around due to her
father's job
He was in the United
States Air Force and then a
consultant in the oil indus-
try.'-
"'We started in West Vir-
ginia and then went to
southern Louisiana.," she
said.' explaining that as
they lived in those states,
their dad was traveling to
Brazil. Alaska and the Mid-
dle East.
The family finally settled
down in Central Florida in
1976. While she said mov-\
ingaround is definitely not
for.everyone, she believes
it was a benefit for her.
She said it added to "my.
diversity and flexibility.
You do it as a child, you've
learned a lot," she said
She feels it has added to
her personality and ability
to adapt.
While the majority of her


immediate family is in the
Central Florida area, one
of her brothers is in Italy.
Her nieces and nephews,
as well as her own chil-
dren, are avid readers. Her
daughter is currently read-
ing through the Sunshine
State Readers for sixth
graders, she said.
As for "my siblings, I'm
not even going to talk about
that," she said with a laugh.
"Working in a library you
learn to respect a library
and what it stands for and
what it's doing in yourcom-
munity." she said.
"I know it's kind of a
cliche, but the library -
the public library, is the
cornerstone of.\our com-
nmunity," she said, adding
that she thinks the county
system should have
evening hours inside and

of Henry County.
The elder Hallman ex-
pected his son to follow a
judicial career path.
However, young "Bud"
Hallman had his own ideas
and attended the Univer-
sity of Tennessee on rodeo
scholarships for approxi-
mately two years while rid-
ing rodeo circuits.
The judge qualified for
Florida Cowboys Associa-
tion Finals 17 times be-
tween 1972 and 1989,
winning the association's
Steer Wrestler Title four
times.
Other accomplishments
include qualifying in the
top 15 of International Pro-
fessional Rodeo Associa-
tion (IPRA) world
standings for Steer
Wrestling.
Decades ago and right
after young Hallman won
an IPRA steer wrestling
competition in Tennessee,
his father suddenly died.
Hallman decided to at-
tend Nova Southeastern
Law School, a decision that
represented a split in the
trail. For many years, the
trails of rodeo and justice
remained separate ones as
Hallman moved forward in
his law career on a judicial
trail that saw him trade
saddle and chaps for an ex-
ecutive chair and robe.
After passing the Florida
Bar in 1992, Hallman went
to work for the state attor-
ney's office and qualified
for the Southeastern Cir-
cuit Finals at age 40. But

the judge took up golf, and
after qualifying in top 12
for Southeastern Circuit
Finals in 1994, he didn't set
a boot in another stirrup
for 15 years.
In 2007, rodeo fever re-
turned, culminating in this
year's steer wrestling
championship. The next
step is the Dodge national
circuit finals competition
in early April 2010.
"It helps to have a wife
who is supportive," said
Hallman, when asked what
keeps him competitive so
long after most have re-
tired from rodeo competi-
tion.
On being sore, Hallman
quipped, "it doesn't matter
if you're 18 or 56, when you
throw yourself in the path
of a spooked steer. If you
aren't in good physical con-


edition, you'll be sore."
Hallman believes
strength training offers the
advantage because the
longer it takes, the lower
the score and the more
you're sore.

Hallman at Dodge Circuit
Finals. The circuit court

"I feel that everyone
should take pride in their
public library."
She said if you're moving
into an area and looking
for good schools, look for a
good library.
As for what people who
don't use the library need
to know ..."They need to
come visit," she said.
The library has a collec-
tion of. databases, DVDR
movies, best-sellers, chil-,
dren's programs-and book,:
clubs, as well as computers
and access to the Internet


She said library services
also include copying and
faxing. In January, resi-
dents can even obtain their
tax forms.
"By having a library card
you have access to materi-
als and resources,"
whether you are in a li-
brary or at home, she said.
Shiflet said she made the
change to Sumter because,
"I saw the opening and I
saw the progress that
Sumter County was going
to be making with their li-
braries over the next cou-
ple of years. I just felt like I
could bring my experience
here," she said.
She said they are work-
ing to acclimate the Wild-
wood and Bushnell
libraries into the system.


They were both taken over
by the county in recent
weeks. The Wildwood li-
brary will also be expand-
ing, quadrupling in size
and doubling in staff, she
said.
She notes they have
great programs in place
now, but over time they will
assess each branch and the
clientele and see where ex-
pansions need to be. She's
hoping that within the
week, the libraries will be
fully staffed.
Their big focus in the im-
mediate future will be to
build a cohesive team for
the countywide system, she
said.
Shiflet and her husband
Larry have two children,
son Taylor, 10, and daugh-
ter Amber, 12.

Police report


Arrested deputy


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

A Sumter County sher-
iff's deputy was arrested in
Marion County for driving
under the influence a little
before 3 a.m. on Saturday.
Benjamin Duane
Muecke, 27, Oxford, a
deputy since March 2004,
resigned Tuesday, accord-
ing to Lt. Bobby Caruthers
of the Sheriff's office.
The incident occurred at
the 8000 block of State
Road 42 where a Marion
County deputy observed
Muecke's silver Toyota
SUV stopped in the west-
bound outside lane with
headlights on.
The Marion County


deputy said the vehicle
had an expired license
plate. As he pulled behind
the vehicle, the deputy ob-
served Muecke "drift
across the road into the
fast lane" at a slow rate of
speed. He then conducted
a traffic stop.
After approaching the
vehicle, the deputy deter-
mined Muecke had been
drinking, stating his
speech was slurred and it
was a challenge .for him to
retrieve his license and
registration.
The deputy conducted a
field sobriety test and ac-
cording to the incident re-
port, Muecke failed it and
was subsequently arrested.
A Marion County Sher-
iffls Office incident report,


resigns

dated Nov. 28, states that
while en route, Muecke
used profanity against the
arresting officer and the
Marion County Sheriff's
Office and made threaten-
ing comments directed at
the officer's family.
The report states that
Muecke also "spit all over
the back seat" and refused
to submit a breath sample
at jail.
Caruthers said that
Muecke helped pull a vic-
tim from a burning vehicle
in October of 2006 and was
awarded a Medal of Dis-
tinction for his actions.
The Marion County re-
port states that Muecke
called the arresting officer
to apologize for his behav-
ior on Sunday.


Willard Bryant of Webster was flown by helicopter to Orlando Regional Medical
Center after crashing his car into a tree in front of Winn Dixie Market Place on
Main Street in Bushnell.The single-car accident occurred around 2:30 p.m. last
Friday. Sumter Fire Rescue and Lake-Sumter EMS worked for more than a half

Citizens have a


responsibility to vote


in local elections
W while Americans, mostly young Americans, are dying
on foreign soil to secure the right for others to hold
fair elections, too many do not bother to cast their
votes in elections.
Meanwhile, the economic fate of young Americans is the
subject of great debate, as the federal government piles tril-
lions of dollars in new debt atop trillions in existing debt.
In the interim - with hundreds of thousands of troops de-
ployed, many at war, and double-digit unemployment loom-
ing at home - the country seems politically polarized,
lacking consensus or direction.
Despite such wide discord, a government census report on
the 1990 elections shows that younger Americans are more
likely to surrender their vote than older Americans, even
though such issues as war and deficit spending are more
likely to impact their lives.
The good news is that, in national elections, young people
have voted in increasing numbers since 1990.
Census numbers show increase in national elections
A 1990 Census report revealed that 60 percent of persons
age 65 and over, and 56 percent of Americans 45 to 64, voted
in the 1990 election.
On the other hand, 41 percent of those age 25 to 44 years
and 20 percent of 18 to 24-year-olds were reported voting that
year.
In the 2000 presidential election, almost 111 million Amer-
icans cast their ballot, including 36 percent of registered vot-
ers between 18 and 24 and 50.5 percent of those 25 to 34. That
year, 60.5 percent of voters between 35 and 44 voted.
In 2008, the Census Bureau report revealed that more
Americans voted in 2008 elections than in 2004.
The report states that about 131 million people reported
voting in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, an increase of
five million from 2004.
According to a table package released by the U.S. Census
Bureau, the 2008 increase included about 2 million more
black voters, 2 million, more Hispanic voters and about
600,000 more Asian voters, while the number of non-Hispanic
white voters remained statistically unchanged.
In 2008, voters 18 to 24 were the only age group to show a
statistically significant increase in turnout, reaching 49 per-
cent compared with 47 percent in 2004. Blacks had the high-
est turnout rate among 18- to 24-year-old voters - 55 percent,
an eight percent increase from 2004.
Local elections generally suffer poor participation
While voting in presidential elections has increased, there
is no evidence of such an increase in local races.
Unfortunately, turnout for local elections is uniformly and
consistently much lower than for national elections with rel-
atively few exceptions.
Ironically, local politics often have a more profound im-
pact on the lives of individuals within a community.
Nevertheless, it is common for local elections to be decided
by a small fraction of eligible voters.
An example of low voter turnout:
In November, 26.4 percent of Pinellas County voters de-,
cided for the other 73.6 percent, according to results certi-
fied by Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah
Clark
Local December elections in Sumter County are for city of-
fices, therefore do not involve all 61,561 registered voters in
the county.
In many of these races, a handful of votes may separate
winners from losers. To that end, every vote counts in local
elections.
Election Day in Sumter's five cities is Tuesday, Dec. 8.



Largest online Angel


Giving Tree program


J. C. Penney Company, Inc.
(NYSE: JCP) and The Salvation
Army are joining forces this
Christmas season to give joy to
even more people in need
through a grand-scale online
Angel Giving Tree program. For
the first time ever, until Dec. 14,
customers can adopt and shop
online for Angels at
www.jcp.com/angel, providing
tens of thousands of children
and seniors facing hardship in
communities across the country
with Christmas gifts.
"In a year when so many need
help, the new online Angel Giv-
ing Tree program will extend
our reach and make it easier for
our customers and Associates to
give back this holiday season,"
said Mike Boylson, executive
vice president and chief mar-
keting officer for J.C.Penney.


"By leveraging the strength of
jcp.com, we are helping to mod-
ernize an American tradition-
the Angel Tree program - and
creating an innovative way to
help families in need in our
communities across the nation.
Launching this program with
The Salvation Army allows us to
elevate our support for a cause
that is extremely important to
our customers and Associates,
underscoring our focus on the
'Joy of Giving' this holiday sea-
son."
The new online Angel Giving
Tree program builds on the
legacy of The Salvation Army's
Angel Tree program that has
been in operation for more than
40 years.
"We are excited about this

Letters to the editor


Food being collected
for the Salvation Army
"We have become acutely
aware of how the current econ-
omy is forcing people to make
very difficult choices just to
meet their daily needs," said
Jim Semesco, general manger
for a group of funeral homes
and cemeteries in Lake and
Sumter counties. "To that end,
we are collecting nonperish-
able food items for The Salva-
tion Army. In these trying times
it is very important that we not
forget the children and fami-
lies who need help today and
during the holidays," Semesco
added. Food and toys will be
collected at the four area fu-
neral homes as well as at the
"Night of Lights" luminary re-
membrance program to be held
at the Hillcrest Memorial Gar-
dens, on Friday, Dec. 4 at 6 p.m.
"While taking time to remem-
ber our loved ones and friends,
this seems a very appropriate
time and place to remember
and offer assistance to those
who are living in need,"
Semesco continued.
The "Night of Light" lumina-
tion will include a message of
hope, uplifting seasonal music,
a guest speaker from Toys For
Tots, and Bill Stewart, director
of development representing
the Salvation Army. Partici-
pants will be invited to light a
candle in honor of their loved
ones and there will be thou-
sands of luminaries placed in
memory. "This is a very unique
opportunity for us to remember
our loved ones and also to help
those who are needy. We are
very thankful to Jim Semesco
and his associates at the fu-
neral homes and cemetery. The
food we collect will bring
needed relief to our almost-
empty pantries," said Bill
Stewart.
The ongoing collections of
nonperishable food and toys
will be taking place at the fol-
lowing locations: Banks Page
Theus Funeral home, 410 Web-
ster Street, Wildwood; Hamlin
Hilbish Funeral Home, 326 E.
Orange Avenue, Eustis; Page
Theus Funeral Homes, 914 W.
Main Street, Leesburg; Stever-
son Hamlin Hilbish Funeral
Home, 226 E. Burleigh Boule-
vard, Tavares. Food and toys
will also be collected at the
"Night of Lights" at Hillcrest
Memorial Gardens, 1901
County Road 25-A, Leesburg on
Friday, Dec. 12.
The Salvation Army is a Par-
ticipating Agency with United
Way of Lake and Sumter coun-
ties, the Human Care Network,
the Sumter Ministerial Associ-
ation, the Sumter County


Chamber of Commerce, and
the Lake County Chamber of
Commerce.
The Salvation Army, an inter-
national movement, is an evan-
gelical part of the universal
Christian church. Its message
is based on the Bible. Its min-
istry is motivated by the love of
God. Its mission is to preach
the gospel ofJesus Christ and
to meet human needs in His
name without discrimination.
Bill Stewart
This guy doesn't
have a clue!
What do I mean when I say
this guy doesn't have a clue?
What has he done to address
our economic situation? In his
first 100 days in office, he has
created the largest expansion
of federal government since
World War II. This community
activist/former Junior Senator
from Illinois has shown he
doesn't mind spending billions
of our hard earned tax dollars
on the auto industry, banks and
insurance companies, running
up trillions of dollars of debt
for our children and grandchil-
dren in his inept attempt to
battle our economic crisis.
Huh, I thought it was Republi-
cans that were in bed with big
business.
Another guy who doesn't
have a clue is Treasury Secre-
tary Timothy Geithner, scratch-
ing his head, telling the
congressional oversight panel
America's banks are still bro-
ken, even after billions of upon
billions of taxpayers dollars
have been wasted, providing
little if any effect on job cre-
ation! The banks are broke be-
cause of progressive taxation.
The majority of our families
live paycheck to paycheck
spending all their income, saV-
ing none! Bank reserves have
declined as taxes have gone up,
thanks to government spend-
ing! This is a result of an abuse
of power. The Constitution
gives Congress the right to col-
lect tax to fund government,
not to grow government
Currently we are faced with
an underestimated 10.2 per-
cent unemployment rate.,This
is the highest since 1983. Presi-
dent Obama now plans to hold
a "jobs" summit, before heading
off on an Asia escapade; he an-
nounced he plans to hold this
"jobs" summit, a summit aimed
at obtaining job growth.
However, based on his past
endeavors I am sure it will in-
clude more reckless and waste-
ful government spending of our
hard earned tax dollars in-
tended to "break the back" of
the recession but will ulti-
mately break the back of our


economy.
Obama plans to bring to-
gether economists, owners of
small business, CEOs, financial
experts, nonprofit groups and
his cronies from labor unions
and "to talk about how we can
work together to create jobs
and get this economy moving
again." He also said; "We all
know that there are limits to
what government can and
should do, even during such
difficult times. But we have an
obligation to consider every ad-
ditional, responsible step that
we can take to encourage and
accelerate job creation in this
country"
IsHe kidding. He wants to
consider every additional, re-
sponsible step? Like what he'
has done thus far has been re-
sponsible? Here is a guy who,
because of partisan politics,
said "we won, we will do it my
way". This isn't a game!
There are three hundred and
ten million people (310,000,000)
in this country that he is ac-
countable to, not just the
69,456,897 million missguided
citizens that voted for him. Yet
he and the Democrats are
going to ignore the will of the
240,543,103 people who didn't
vote for him to satisfy the
69,456,897 that did. Isn't he sup-
posed to be the president of
our country, not the leader of a
faction?
He went on to say that the in-
tent of the forum is to prevent
making "any ill-considered de-
cisions even with the best in-
tentions particularly at a time
when our resources are so lim-
ited. But it's just as important
that we are open to any demon-
strably good idea to supple-
ment the steps we've already
taken to put America back to
work" Again is he kidding... ill-
considered, like pushing thru
legislation without reading it,
not knowing what is in it, not
knowing exactly just what you
are voting on, like that's well
thought-out! About 16 million
people are currently unem-
ployed, because of the ill-con-
sidered decisions he has
already made and I'm not quite
sure of his intentions!
Obama said, more is needed
to "encourage and accelerate
job creation." Obama said, "The
economic growth that we've
seen has not yet led to the job
growth that we desperately
need." Ya think?
Obama got indignant and
laughed at the Republicans for
their claims that his stimulus
bill was a spending bill. He
said, "What do you think a stim-

ulus is? That's the whole
point!"
What the Republicans un-
derstand and most high
school students understand
is that a stimulus program is
to put money currently in the
economy, back into the hands
of the "consumers" to "spend"
in the economy, it is not to
put money in the hands of
"politicians" to spend on
their "special interest" and
"pork." I thought we were
going to see change; all I see
is perpetuation of political
self interest and payback
One thing Mr. Obama is
clueless about is stimulus!
Stimulus is taking existing
money and give it back to the
American people (tax cuts) so
they can spend it and stimu-
late the economy; he has cho-
sen to borrow money from
the Chinese and to put us all
into debt This borrowing
will only aggravate the prob-
lem we find ourselves in, not
mitigate it as demonstrated
by its failure to produce jobs
and put people back to work.
But because tax cuts is what
Republicans would do, we
can't do that, that would be
admitting the Republicans
have a better understanding
of how our economy works;
they would rather destroy
our economy that admit that
tax cuts work!
As a society we cannot sur-
vive if we only have enough
income to pay for our needs.
We must have enough in-
come after we pay for our
needs to consume the things
we want After all, how many
shoes do you really need?

Right now the concern is

Obama thinks he can give
money to business compa-

of tax cuts, and incentives to
hire employees. Clearly

Woodard dies at 95


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Bushnell resident Mar-
sha Perkins said her aunt
Doris Woodard, was her
idol.
Perkins said she remem-
bers Woodard, a registered
nurse, had the "perfect
look," with her white
shoes, white uniform and
starched white hat.
She looked so. perfect
that Perkins wanted to
grow up to be a nurse just
like her.
"Then I found out what
nurses have to do - yucky
stuff with sick people," she
said with a laugh.
While Perkins chose a
different path, she can see
that still, to some degree,
she was inspired by her
aunt
Doris . (Dotty)' Marie
Woodaard, 95, died Thurs-
day, Nov. 26 after battling
pneumonia.
She had been hospital-
ized with difficulty breath-
ing on Nov. 8 and was
diagnosed with pneumo-
nia. She was released on
Nov. 20 and was doing
great, but suddenly took a
turn for the worse last
week
One of nine children, she
had a long history of
achievements. She, helped
coordinate and worked in
tuberculosis hospitals and
even worked in Sumter
County as a public health
nurse.
Her brother-in-law
Johnny Outlaw said
Woodard had been through
the "Great Depression"
and "she could see the
need of the rural people."
He believes that's one of
the reasons she chose


nursing.
"She was always looking
for higher education. Her
goal was to better herself
and be of service to peo-
ple."
Woodard was the
younger sister of Perkins'
dad Edwin and according
to Perkins, the nature of
the family was to help oth-
ers.
Even after she retired
from nursing, she was serv-
ing others. That's when she
became a social worker
and in the late 1960's and
early '70's helped families
to re-acclimate as institu-
tions closed their doors to
the mentally challenged.
Ironic, because Perkins
ended up as director of
SCARC, an agency that was
created from those
changes in the system and
currently serves at least
five of the clients that
Woodard served.
Perkins said she. had
asked her aunt how she
knew so much about some
of the clients and that's
when Woodard explained
she was the person who
helped them as they were
coming back home.
Recently Woodard do-
nated a van to SCARC.,
Perkins said Woodard
would always tell her,
"When I'm finished, I'm
going to donate this," to the
agency That would allow
them take a client to the
doctor without taking one
of the larger vehicles.
Woodard took money out
of her savings and paid off
the vehicle.
"We use that van every
day - 30 years later, she's
still taking care of them,"
Perkins said of her aunt's
dedication to her clients.
"She had a real interest

in helping people.
"I think that says some-
thing about her."
While in Hospice care,
Perkins said Woodard re-
ceived numerous phone
calls.
She said the nurse asked
who all the people were
who were calling, since
Woodard wasn't married
and didn't have a husband
or children.
She had nieces, nephews
and other relatives and
they were calling from
around the nation, accord-
ing to Perkins.
The calls came from
New York City to Seattle,
Wash. "They were all call-
ing to say goodbye to her,"
Perkins said.
She feels sure that her


aunt waited for them to ar-
rive Thanksgiving after-
noon before passing.
"Especially Kenny (one
of Woodard's nephews), he
had seen her on Sunday
and said 'Aunt Doris, I'll be
back on Thursday.'"
Woodard died about 30
minutes after they arrived,
as they stood holding her
hand.
Woodard battled more
physical illness than her
siblings and yet lived
longest, battling and de-
feating cancer twice in her
lifetime, Perkins said.
She also recalled the pay
structure for her aunt back
in those early days. She
said the county would run
out of money through the
year and provide employ-

SUMTER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2009, PAGE 9



Woman loses nearly $4,000 in reported scam


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Liz Luman just needed a
little extra cash when she
began to job hunt online.
"I was doing this for
Christmas money, so I
could get my boys Christ-
mas," she said.
But that was a few weeks
ago. Since then Luman has
applied for a loan from the
bank - not to purchase
Christmas gifts for her fam-
ily, but to pay back the
nearly $4,000 that she lost
after accepting a new
"job."
She deposited the "em-
ployer's" $4,000 check into
her account, wired them
more than $3,500 as part of
the work she was hired to
do and then found out the
check in her account was
no good.
She found the job while
"on the Internet browsing."
The job supposedly paid
$350 a week for residents
to serve as secret shoppers
- to visit a store, make
purchases and report serv-
ice, courtesy, etc.
"I thought 'Oh gosh, this
I can do,'" Luman said.
It would allow her to
work hours that wouldn't


interfere with her current
schedule. She works at her
own business and also
stays busy doing commu-
nity volunteer work
"I went ahead and filled
it out, thinking well, if they
call me that would be a lit-
tle extra money."
She went through a tele-
phone interview and
within days, "I got this let-
ter and this check in the
mail."
The check was for $3,950.
She said the man from
the company told her to de-
posit the check and call
him back When she made
the deposit, the bank said
there would be a five-day
wait before the check
cleared.
Luman's instructions for
the job were to evaluate a
local store. Part of that
evaluation included using
their money wiring serv-
ice, sending $3,650 of the
money to a store in the
United Kingdom.
She was supposed to pay
the wire charges with
money to be sent back and
keep the remaining $350 as
her pay.
Luman said she had to
call him to provide the
transaction number, as
well as fax the "customer


service evaluation" form.
She said that's when he
told her, "I will call you
Monday morning with an-
other assignment. He did-
n't call, so I called him."
She's been getting voice-
mail ever since and his
voicemail box is full.
By the following week,
"The bank called and said
the check bounced. Then it
kind of opened my eyes. I
goofed."
Once she realized her
mistake, Luman went to
the sheriff's office and
filed a report. "It's all been
checked out, it's all fraud,"
said Luman.
She said the bank told
her that there are six or
seven other people who
have gotten the checks lo-
cally, besides her.
"One resident attempted
to cash the check and that's
how she found out it was
no good. I should have
done that," Luman said.
"I'll have to pay the
money back to the bank -
we're trying to get a loan to
pay it back."
"Our account's frozen,
we can't even get in it."
That means they can't ac-
cess the Social Security
payments they live on.
"I was sick, I was sick,"


she said, adding that she
broke out in hives when
she found out.
As for her, "I'm just going
to end up paying it back.
I'm not sure how yet. That
kind of cash is not avail-
able in my lifetime."
Sumter sheriff's Det.
Billy Smith is assigned to
Luman's case.
He said there are a vari-
ety of schemes out there,
from the "secret shopper"
scams to the "advanced
fee" schemes.
"If you get an e-mail and
it says 'make money from
home,' don't even open it,"
Smith said.
The scams range from
finding someone willing to
cash checks or pay ship-
ping costs, to asking for
money to help bail some-
one out from another cqun-
try.
Smith said there's one
where victims get a phone
call claiming that one of
their relatives is being held
in another country.
The caller asks for sev-


eral thousand dollars in
bond money and then typi--
cally, a second person gets
on the phone and claims to
be the authorities.
"People fall for that and
they will actually send the-
money to Canada," Smith
said.
"They're .very hard to
solve. Outside - bf the'
United States, we don't
have jurisdiction to pick
the suspects up," he said,.
explaining that it's also
"very difficult to find.
leads."
He said most of those
calls seem to 'originate
from Canada and the au-
thorities there are "aware
of it and trying to take care
of it."
Luman wanted the story"
out 'in the public to stop"
other people from doing'
the same thing.
"Because I'm on a fixed
income - I can't afford it,
but all these people that
are really hurting ..," she
said, mentioning senior cit-
izens and people out of


.work, desperately seeking
work.-
"I'm so afraid :some-
body's going to try this and
really get in too deep."
Sumter sheriff's .Chief
Deputy Jack. Jordan said
scammers put information
out in various ways - ei-
ther using online::l-ist
sources, mailing in mass
nuinbetrs and telephoning.
"'The general rule of
thumb is, if it sounds too
good to be true. it probably
- Red flagsc.omei;n -the
form of requests for money
or personal financial infor-
mation - sending money to
find out what-you've won.
or a - checking account
number.
"Nothing's free in this
world," he said, adding
that there have been a lot
of scams and in many
cases, actually identity
thefts.
"It affects everybody, it
doesn't matter if you're
rich or poor."

ARIES tMarch 21 to April 19) That
change in holiday travel plans might
be more vexing than you'd expected.
But try to take it in stride. Also, it
couldn't hurt to use that Aries charm to
coax out some helpful cooperation.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your
Bovine determination helps you deal
with an unforeseen complication.
And, as usual, you prove that when it
comes to a challenge, you have what it
takes to take it on.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Although a romantic theme dominates
much of the week, all those warm and
fuzzy feelings don't interfere with the
more pragmatic matters you need to
take care of.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Best
not to ignore those doubts about an
upcoming decision. Instead, recheck
the facts you were given to make sure
nothing important was left out. A
weekend surprise awaits you.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) No time
for a catnap - yet. You might still
have to straighten out one or two fac-
tors so that you can finally assure
yourself of the truth about a troubling
workplace situation. Stay with it.
VIRGO (August 23 September 22)
News from an old friend could lead to
an unexpected (but nonetheless wel-
come) reunion with someone who had
once been very special in your life. Be

open to the possibilities.
LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) It might be time for a family coun-
cil. The sooner those problems are
resolved, the sooner you can move
ahead with your holiday preparations.
Don't let the opportunity pass you by.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November
21) Take some time out to give moree,
attention to a personal relationship
that seems to be suffering from a sense
of emotional neglect. Provide that
much-needed reassurance.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Cheer up. That unusual
circumstance that might faze most
people can be handled pretty well by
the savvy Sagittarian. Look at it as an
opportunity rather than an obstacle.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to Jan-
uary 19) Someone you believe has hurt
you in the past might now need your
help. Reaching out could be difficult.
But the generous Goat will be able to
do the right thing, as always.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febru-
ary 18) Prioritizing is an important
part of your pre-holiday scheduling.
Try to give time both to your workday
responsibilities and those personal
matters you might have neglected.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
With the vestiges of your anger about
that painful incident fading, you can
now focus all your energy on the more
positive aspects of your life, including
that personal situation.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a
way of bringing your own strong sense
of reassurance to others and encotirag-
ing them to hope.

Dear EarthTalk: I re-
cently heard the term "liv-
ing building." . Can you
explain?
- Rebecca Gordon,
Seattle, WA
Over the past couple of
decades, architects and
builders looking to green
their projects turned to the
addition of various piece-
meal elements to save
water here or cut down on
electricity there. Those
who added more than a
few green touches could
apply for and get certified
by the United States Green
Building Council (USGBC)
under its Leadership in
Energy and Efficient De-
sign (LEED) program.
While these efforts have
been laudable-essentially
launching the green build-
ing industry as we know it
today-they represent'
merely the infancy of what
green building might
someday become.
The concept of the "liv-
ing building" has now
emerged as a new ideal for
design and construction.


The Cascadia Region
Green Building Council
(CRGBC) - the Pacific
Northwest chapter of the
USGBC--defines a living
building as a structure that
"generates all of its own
energy with renewable
non-toxic resources, cap-
tures and treats all of its
water, and operates effi-
ciently and for maximum
beauty." The group has
been pushing for adoption
of the concept by construc-
tion industries here at
home, and also helped to
launch the International
Living Building Institute to
promote the concept inter-
nationally
"We view our role as the
organization that is meant
to ask the really tough
questions, to push the
boundaries as far as possi-
ble," says Jason McLen-
nan, CEO of CRGBC. To
this end, in 2006 the group
launched its Living Build-
ing Challenge (LBC), a
"call to the design and con-
struction community to
pursue true sustainability
in the built environment."
So far 60 different projects
around North America are
vying to meet the high stan-
dards of the LBC, which


exceed even the highest
status of LEED certifica-
tion ..
The first building to be
completed for considera-
tion under the LBC pro-
gram is, the Omega Center
for Sustainable Living, in
Rhinebeck, NY. The 6,200
square-foot, one-level
building, which serves as
headquarters for the
Omega Institute for Holis-
-tic Studies, features a geot-
hermal heating and
cooling system, solar pan-
els, rain gardens that di-
rect water run-off to
irrigate plantings, a 4,500-
square-foot greenhouse
that helps filter waste-
water for reuse,. "daylight-
ing" design that brings
natural light indoors to
minimize electric light
usage, and eco-friendly
building materials all
around. It was designed-
per LBC criteria-to be
"net-zero," meaning it uses
no more energy than it gen-
erates itself. Once the
building has been in opei-
ation for a full year next
summer, CRGBC will audit
it to see if its performance
lives up to the green hype.
Dozens of other LBC con-
tenders around North


America will be audited as
well.
Of course, the costs of
creating a living building
today are very high.
Achieving net-zero can be
especially costly, and
stands out as one of the
biggest obstacles to greater
interest in the living build-
ing concept Another chal-
lenge is finding materials
that meet LBC standards,
since many common build-
ing materials-such as
PVC piping for wastewater
transport-off-gas chemi-
cals and have other haz-
ardous attributes. LBC also
expects builders to source
locally as many materials
as possible to b6ost local
economies and make effi-
cient use of nearby natural
resources. McLennan re-
mains confident that costs
will come down as green
materials, . technologies
and methods become more
commonplace within the
general building industry.

International organizers, delegates and others attending the upcoming COP15
climate conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, are hoping for the establishment
of an ambitious, legally binding global emissions reduction agreement to take
effect beginning in 2012. That is when initial commitments made under the
Kyoto Protocol, an earlier international climate treaty that the U.S. refused to
join, expire.

Critter chatter




Holiday safety tips for your pet


Linda
Graves
Humane
Society I
T'is time to "deck the
halls" and trim the tree.
When preparing for the
festivities of the season, keep
in mind some pet safety tips.
Just as we are attracted to
the sparkle and glitter, so are
our kitty-cat friends and dog
buddies. Items such as tinsel,
ribbon, and ornament hooks
can cause intestinal blockages
if ingested, putting your pet at
risk.
Christmas trees can create
many dangers. If you have a
-real tree, cover the water in


the stand, and do not allow
your pets to drink the water.
Tree sap in the water can be
poisonous. - --
Some pets, particularly cats,
may think that climbing the
Christmas tree would be fun.
To prevent active pets from
knocking down the tree, use
fishing line to secure the tree
to the wall or ceiling.
Unplug tree lights when not
at home to prevent a curious
nibbler from getting an elec-
tric shock. If you have a pet
that is fascinated by the orna-
ments, leave the decorations
off of the lower tree limbs.
Any gifts containing human
food should not be left under
the tree. Tempting smells can
cause your pet to get into the
gift and feast on the contents.
Some human treats can be
dangerous to your pets, such


as chocolates, raisins, and al-
cohol.
Holiday plants such as poin-
settias and mistletoe should
be kept well out of reach of
pets. These plants are poison-
ous if chewed on or ingested.
If you have a curious pet that
you have concerns about, con-
sider gettifig artificial plants
to decorate with.
Scented holiday candles
bring beauty to any room;
however, be sure that they are
inaccessible to your pels Cats
can brush up against a candle
and easily catch on fire.
Because a fire can start if a
candle is knocked over by a
pet, never leave lit candles un-
attended.
The holidays are full of hus-
tle and bustle, including par-
ties with family and friends
and lots of food. Some furry


friends are born socialites, but
others may become over-
whelmed with holiday activi-
ties.
Have a quiet room where
your pet can retreat to if
needed.
And last, but not least, be
vigilant with your pet's diet.
Too many human holiday
treats can cause upset stom-
achs.
Many stores sell beautifully
decorated holiday treats made
specifically for pets. They
make great gifts, and should
not cause pets to become ill.
Holidays are happy times
when every member of your
family, both human and non-
human, shares in the festivi-
ties. Be sure family members
stay healthy and safe. -
Happy Holidays!


Pet of the week


Bobby Sue is wearing her Santa hate
and ready for the holidays. Bobby
Sue is a character and enjoys enter
training you with her antics. The onej
year-old is a mischievous kitty whq
loves to explore and play. She lovee
playing with other kitties. Sun,
bathing on the porch is how Bobby
Sue likes to relax. If you like to be eni
tertained, Bobby Sue is the cat for
you. Call the Humane Society/SPCA

__ LSCC instructor "Professor of the Year"


"Professor of the Year" yobil Brown witn ner nus-
band Robert at the FACC Convention.


Lake-Sumter Commu-
nity College now has brag-
ging rights to having on its
faculty the "Professor of
the Year." The award was
presented to math instruc-
tor Sybil Brown during the
Florida Association of
Community College's 60th
Annual Convention held
last week (Nov. 18 to 20) in
Orlando. This was the
fourth consecutive year
that LSCC has been repre-
sented at the state finals.
Each of Florida's 28
community colleges can
send a representative to its
regional competition.
Three finalists are chosen
to advance to the state
competition during the
FACC Convention. At each
of the three selection lev-
els, the contestants give a
fifteen-minute presenta-
tion that represents her/his
teaching style and subject
Brown taught from her
Introduction to Statistics


course. She incorporated a
real-life example that she
had used to interpret the
percentiles given to her
sister by her son's pediatri-
cian, explaining the boy's
body ratios. She humor-
ously "translated" the
medical statistics to give
her sister a more clear
meaning of the doctor's re-
port.
"Sybil drew upon. her
vast knowledge, witty per-
sonality and presentation
skills to entertain the audi-
ence during her award-
winning lesson," praised,
Math department Chair
Thom Kieft.

munity colleges. Member-
ship in the organization is

For the second year, The
Villages Mustang Club will
be ringing the bells at the
traditional red kettles. On
Wednesday, Dec. 2, the bell
ringer team will be at the
red kettle located at Pub-
lix on Hwy. 466 in The Vil-
lages. On Tuesday, Dec. 8,
2009 the club will have
their annual "Mustang
Caravan" that will bring
toys and donations to The
Salvation Army. The toys
and donations are col-
lected at the club's De-
cember Holiday Party.
According to Harry
Miller, vice president and
special events chair of The
Villages Mustang Club,
"The membership of our
club voted overwhelm-
ingly to again volunteer as
'bell ringers' during the
2009 holiday season. The
members who partici-
pated last year were eager
to again 'staff the kettles'
in 2009, perhaps on more
days and in more loca-
tions. The reaction from
persons making donations
was very heartwarming,
more than anyone really
expected." The Villages
Mustang Club members
will again donate quality
toys as an admission cost
to their December Holiday
Party. "Those toys will be
delivered via a 'Mustang
Caravan' to The Salvation
Army warehouse for dis-
tribution during the holi-
day season". Miller added
that "almost everyone has
had positive contacts with
The Salvation Army, and
we want to help that or-
ganization in any way pos-
sible."


Major Tony Barrington
said, "This will be Major
Suzanne Barrington and
my first Christmas as the
officers for The Salvation
Army for Lake and Sumter
counties. We are looking
forward to meeting Mr.
Miller and all his fellow
Villages Mustang Club
members. I know that the
collections they made and
the toys they collected
made a positive difference
for the kids and families
whom we serve. This is al-
ready proving to be a very
hopeful and promising
holiday season. God bless
all our wonderful support-
ers and volunteers."
For more information on
these events or for infor-
mation regarding how to
become a volunteer, or
make a donation, please
call Bill Stewart, Director
of Development at 728-
4302.
The Salvation Army is a
participating agency with
United Way of Lake and
Sumter counties, the
Human Care Network, the
Sumter Ministerial Associ-
ation, the Sumter County
Chamber of Commerce,
and the Lake County
Chamber of Commerce.

Animal Control set to open new building


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

Sumter County Animal
Control protects people and
property from roaming, un-
controlled animals and pro-
tects pets from animal
predators and the elements
and busy streets and high-
ways.
Animal Control is respon-
sible for enforcement of all
County Codes related to the
ownership and care of do-
mestic animals and operates
with three enforcement offi-
cers and a total staff of seven.
The organization is
presently expanding in
order to provide more and
better services in the coming
years.
A new, nearly completed
custom building will add 60
additional dog runs, for a
total of 100 to present capac-
ity. The new runs can be di-

I s RM �


vided in two parts, should
the kennel population swell.
Presently, the massive
concrete floors are to be
coated after which the ani-
mals will take possession of
their new temporary home.
"We adopted out 735 ani-
mals last year," said Mark
Gift, kennel coordinator.
"During fiscal 2008, we in-
creased the adoption rate
more than 50 percent, and
this year we are tracking a 20
percent increase."
All of the domestic ani-
mals that are adopted are
spayed or neutered, accord-
ing to Gift.
Still, many more domestic
animals did not find a home.
The organization processed
over 2,800 animals, well over
2,000 more than adopted.
However, Animal Control
has a new building that will
help boost the adoption
ratio.
"It (the building) provides


options. Having the ability to
house more animals fop a
longer period of time will re-
sult in more adoptions," said
Gift.
Community Services Direc-
tor Deb Barsell, who adopted
her pets from an animal con-
trol shelter, says improve-
ments to the facility are still
under way.
"We are adding a new en-
trance, separate from the
landfill facility entrance,"
said Barsell. "We want to
make it as simple as possible
for people to visit the facility.
In addition to creating a
new and separate driveway
from the main road, Barsell
says a fence will be erected
around the two main str'uc-
tures, and significant land-
scaping will be added.
"The Sumter County Exten-
sion Services is providing a
master gardener to supervise
the landscaping installation.
We want the facility to have


a welcoming appeal, less of
an institutional look," said
Barsell.
Barsell emphasized that
Animal Control is an adop-
tion agency.
"Some of the most won-
derful dogs and cats are
adopted here," said Barsell.
"It is important for people to
understand that we are in


the business of adopting out
these pets to new homes."
The facility also accepts
donations such as blankets,
towels, toys and cash.
"When I was in Monroe
County, their Animal Control
had a $1,000,000 fiscal
budget," said Barsell.
Sumter Animal Control
Services will come in around


$422,000 this year - less
than half of Monroe, accord-
ing to Barsell.
Those interested in pet
adoptions, or to learn more
about donations, should call
(352) 793-1470.
The facility is at 819
County Road 529 and busi-
ness hours are 8 a.m. to 4
p.m.


The new Animal Control building more than doubles the capacity of the pres-
ent facility from 40 to 100 kennel runs. A separate entrance from the landfill fa-
cility entrance will allow access seven days per week.


Fencing and significant landscaping will bring a sense of "welcome" to the ken-
nel, according to Deb Barsell, community services director. Barsell wants the
public to know that part of Animal Control services' mission Is to adopt spayed
and neutered domestic pets to good homes.


The Interior floors are
scheduled to be coated
- the last step before an-
imals are brought in.
