For the second year in a row, it
is unlikely county employees will
receive raises - unless constitu-
tional officers can limit their pro-
posed budgets.
At a Jan. 19 workshop meeting,
county commissioners supported
a wage freeze for the upcoming
2010-11 fiscal year that begins in
October.
The result of the commission
meeting was a letter, dated Jan. 26,
signed by County Administrator
Bradley Arnold, sent to all county
constitutional officers, directing
no salary increases for county em-
ployees be included in their
budget requests.
"I think the letter is fine, worded
very well, very professional," said
BOCC Chairman Doug Gilpin, dur-


'hat could be
better on a
* cool and driz-
zly Saturday afternoon
than a few friends, a
live band and a cup of
chili?
Ask the folks who
turned up in down-
town Bushnell last Sat-
urday and chances are
they'll tell you what
they think - after all,
they paid $5 a person
to give their opinion on
some of Sumter
County's top chili
recipes in the Project
Graduation Chili Cook-
off.
"Things went very
well considering
Mother Nature not
being on our side,"
said event coordinator
and senior parent
Bekkie Smith.
For Bushnell and
South Sumter High
School, it was what co-
ordinators are hoping
was the first of many.
Smith said she came
up with the idea after
attending a chili-cook-
off during a bluegrass
festival last year
A fun experience,
she thought it would
also work as a
fundraiser for Project
Graduation.
"As far as for our first
year, I think it was very
successful."
They cleared nearly
$400 on the event and
have a collection of
supplies left that can
be used for future
events without the

cent over the same two years.


ing last week's BOCC meeting in
The Villages.
Gilpin said county officials
should work together as a team,
and not be political.
In 2009-10, county commission-
ers received an $802 annual pay
increase, according a report by
Florida Legislative Committee on
Intergovernmental Relations
(FLCIR), the state committee that
calculates their compensation.
Conversely, county employees,
other than constitutional officers
and school district officials, re-
ceived no increases in last year's
budget.


The BOCC, in the letter, stated
that if,constitutional, officers gen-
erate sufficient savings in their
budgets to meet rollback require-
ments of a balanced budget, then
raises would be considered.
Budget requests are due May 1,
2010.
Presently, County Administrator
Bradley Arnold, at $134,655, takes
home the largest county paycheck
Compensations for county and
school district officials are listed
below, including 2009-10 base-pay
increases from previous year, from
highest to lowest pay grades, ac-
cording to the FLCIR report.

The dinner play, "Clue
in," that kicked off the
65th Chamber of Com-
merce annual meeting
Friday at the Wildwood
Community Center was
apparently not as well
publicized as the meeting.
After a dinner buffet,
the play provided light-
hearted entertainment.
Titled,."Who killed Mr.
Boddy," the play was au-
thored by an anonymous
- but popular - "local
playwright" and featured
the board game "Clue"
theme.
"Prosecutor" Bradley
Arnold, alias the county
administrator, provided
opportunities for laughter
as he humorously listed a
roster of controversial
events (cases) that took
place in Sumter County
during the past year.
Mentioned were the
failed county attempt to
move a historic Lake
Panasoffkee cemetery to
make room for an un-
named industry, Bush-
nell's "land annexation" to
put an ACMS Class-A
dump near Sumterville,
and the county's hiring of
E5 Solutions as the new
economic development
entity, among other deal-
ings.
Many in the audience
were unaware of the plot,
or even that there was a
play.
An attractive blonde sat
at a table next to a man,
about 60, who had been
alone at the table.
"Are you married?" she
queried. "Do you have a
lot of money?" she asked,
blinking long lashes.
The man, apparently not
accustomed to blunt flirta-
tions, stared blankly and
dropped his jaw - nearly

Dale Dietz, Leta Hart and Terry Rich (seated left to right) and Ken Hart of K.T's
Kitchen were "cowboyed-up" with their heaping of first place chili. The senior
parent team took first place in the "People's Choice" category for tasty chili.
They also managed to dress up their tent in western style.

extra expense.
They also have some
chili that they plan to use
for a chili dinner.
Starting at noon last
week, challengers were
gathered on the plaza,
armed with more than
three gallons of their best
chili, a smile and hopes
that they'd take home first-
place honors.
For chili lovers, it was
taste-bud heaven.
They paid $5 each and
received an armband, cup,
spoon, napkin and one
very special ticket They
were then free to move
from tent to tent, sampling
each chef's chili. Once
they decided on their fa-
vorite, they dropped that
ticket into a bag on the
table in froiif of their fa-


-(,


vorite chili, casting their
vote for the ."People's
Choice" chili winner.
Then, once they made
their choice, they could go
back for more - again and
again and again.
In the background, Todd
Brown and the River Junc-
tion band played from a
dry covered carport across
the street
While it was cloudy and
misty throughout the day,
folks just scooted up be-
neath chili tents or chatted
with umbrellas and pon-
chos when the rain came
down a little harder.
Smith said she heard
positive comments from
people who would be
happy to attend future chili
cook-offs and enjoyed the
festive atmosphere - even
in the rain.
"We hope that it contin-
ues to be an annual tradi-
tion," Smith said, adding
that the organization is
now officially a registered


nonprofit thanks to Ellen
Pitts. The status will make
it easier for businesses to
donate, when it comes to
tax deductions.
Smith also built a Web
site for the organization.
She said they've "never
had an official Web site be-
fore" and urged readers to
check out the site for up-
coming events.
Their next big event is a
golf scramble at Shady
Brook, planned for April
17.
Typically, the group initi-
ates or continues
fundraiser events, passing
them on to the next group
of senior parents. Each
year, they may improve,
change, drop or add to
those events.
Other parents and com-
petit6rs who stepped out
with their chili recipes to
support the kids were

A pair of recent drug
busts included the arrest
of two Wildwood men; one
was from the sheriff's 10
Most Wanted list.
Tihlo Lamar Woods, 24,
Wildwood, from 10 Most
Wanted, was found hiding
under a bed in a Wild-
wood residence on Thurs-
day, Jan. 28, according to a
sheriff's office report.
The Wildwood arrests
were the result of cooper-
ation between Wildwood
police and the sheriff's of-
fice.
Acting on a tip that
Woods was in the resi-
dence at County Road 144,
in Wildwood, three Wild-
wood police officers and a
deputy with a K-9 dog
from the sheriff's office
approached the home and
saw Woods open the door,
the report states.
When he saw police,
Woods slammed the door
and hid inside. A woman
opened the door when po-
Itce officers approached;
a man was standing be-
hind her.
The man and woman
claimed Woods was not in
the home, but allowed
them to search.
Officers observed a
sawed-off rifle and a pistol
wrapped in a ski mask
lying on a kitchen chair,
according to the report.
Woods was found hiding
under a bed and was
taken into custody. The
other man was also ar-
rested.
Police confiscated 12
plastic bags of white pow-
der that field-tested posi-
tive for cocaine, a bag of
substance that tested pos-
itive for marijuana and as-
sorted drug
paraphernalia.
Both Woods and Derrell
Mack Johnson, 46, Wild-
wood, were arrested for
possession of a controlled
substance and possession
of firearms by a felon.
A warrant was issued
for Woods in September

operation.
"This is rented property,
and whenever we can, we

every possible direction,"
he said.
The investigation was
launched after police got
a tip that marijuana was
being grown in the home.
The plants, -packaged
marijuana, and parapher-
nalia were seized during
the search.
The Weises were
charged with cultivation
of marijuana, possession
of marijuana - over 20
grams,. maintaining a drug
house and possession of
drug paraphernalia.

ally charged with failure
to register as a convicted
felon.

Downtown Chili



just right

W hat a great idea! Especially when people are work-
ing so hard to keep the 25-year-old Bushnell Fall Fes-
tival, dealing with economic problems and
sometimes just feeling adrift.
South Sumter High School's Project Graduation put to-
gether a chili cook-off that invited the public to gather in
downtown Bushnell and just relax - together - as a com-
munity
There was chili, live music, camaraderie and laughter -
just what the doctor might order at any given time.
Well, maybe not always chili, but the rest is a definite.
And it was a fundraiser for the seniors to boot
Parent and organization member Bekkie Smith came up
with the idea, after attending something similar at a Blue-
grass festival last year.
For the Bushnell group, it was the first year, so things were
expectedly a little slow.
It was also raining, but that still didn't stop the event and
certainly didn't dampen the atmosphere as folks moved from
chili pot to chili pot with cup in hand and spoon at the ready
Of course they stopped to chat and share their chili choice
thoughts with others along the way.
And when they were done tasting chili, they were even al-
lowed to go back and get more - all that for only five bucks.
While it's a great new-fundraiser for the organization, we
think it's also a tremendous community event for the public
on the cozy Bushnell Plaza.
As a matter of fact, we think it's just right
Can't you just imagine it in the next couple of years when
a brand new gazebo sits in the center of the lot? The crowd
will mill around and they'll actually run out of chili.
We're thinking it can only be enhanced - how about ven-
dor slots from local crafters with handmade items? And don't
forget the band - it melded the pot together just perfectly.
Kudos to the Project Graduation crew and to those who do-
nated their time and effort, including the River Junction
band.

Who you talkin'to?


Brenda

Staff Writer


so much time with myself,
or, perhaps, from a love of
singing (I sing along with the
radio in the car, I sing along with
singers on the stage and on tele-
vision, I sing as I stroll through
the house) or, as some say, it's
because I like to hear myself
talk
There are, for sure, two con-
stants in my life - my lips mov-
ing and sound coming from my
mouth.
Sometimes I find myself read-
ing out loud - but only when
I'm having trouble concentrate
ing and need to comprehend.
Then, there are times when
I'm a little angry or frustrated
and releasing steam - hmmm ...
that one, well ... let's not go
there.
And yes, there are times when
it's in prayer.
But the really big one, when
I'm by myself and strolling
along, is list making. I'm con-
stantly making lists in my head
that seem to filter out through
my lips.
I finally purchased a recorder
that I can speak the lists to and
transfer to the computer - that
should help with that one.
I've considered that my need
to constantly chat may come
from years and years of writing
- after all, each time you write,
you have to read things back to
yourself over and over to see if
they flow.
While usually it's pretty harm-
less, sometimes it does cause a
problem - like the time I was in
the car with my sister and was
heading to Ocala. She was driv-


ing and we were about 30 min-
utes out when she looked over at
me and asked, "Can't you ever
just shut up?"
You can imagine where that
one went...
Not really, she smiled when
she said-,it and then we both
laughed. Why? Because we both
know it's true.
Here's another little problem
with it Apparently, it doesn't re-
ally matter if no one else is
around, I'm evidently more than
happy chatting with myself.
One time, one of the girls I
worked with came in and said
her husband had seen me at the
plaza a couple of days earlier. As
she told it, "He said, 'Honey, that
girl you work with is crazy as a
loon. She was walking down the
sidewalk the other day just talk-
ing away..,'"
And the problem is...?
Then she finished, "...to her-
self."
That could be a real problem.
What if I'm in line behind some
really bad meanies and I'm re-
ally mad at myself. Why, I could
let myself have it- imagine the
things I might say...
Do you think they're going to
believe me when I tell them who
I was really talking to?
Of course, I've come up with a
solution for that particular part
of the "Brenda-loves-to-talk,"
problem.
. It's called a "Blue Tooth,"
have you heard of them?
Really neat little gadget
While the hands-free may
draw most people, that's not
what really interested me. I
mean, I can talk anyway -
hands free, hands up, hands
tied.
Apparently I can hook that lit-
tle earpiece in my ear, speak
into that mini-microphone and
as far as the world is concerned
I'll be on a very important
phone call. No one will ever
know it's me I'm talking to.
Ain't technology grand?

Letters to the editor


The Silence
of the Lamb
The far left can no longer ig-
nore the fact that Osama Bin
Laden and Al Qaeda have de-
clared war on the United States
of America. The far left can no
longer ignore the fact that
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the
self professed master mind of
the 911 attacks, did so under or-
ders from Bin Laden and Al
Qaeda. It is naive to think that
such an attack which required
years of planning, a coordinated
team of terrorists, cost millions
of dollars to complete and re-
sulted in the deaths of more
than 3,000 Americans was not
an act of war. It is naive to think
that such an attack was not part
ofAl Qaeda's declared objective
to destroy the United States.
Why then does Attorney Gen-
eral Holder insist on treating
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed not
as a self professed enemy com-
batant but as a common crimi-
nal? Why then did Attorney
General Holder take action to
remove this enemy combatant
from military jurisdiction and
place him under the jurisdic-
tion of the Department of Jus-
tice? Why then did the Attorney
General take steps to ensure
this enemy combatant became
entitled to all the same rights
and protections of the Constitu-
tion of United States afforded to
any criminal defendant? Why
then has the man who named
him Attorney General, the man
to whom he reports, President
Barrack Obama been silent
about that decision? Why then
did President Obama ratify At-
torney General Holder's deci-
sion by asking Congress for a
$200 million appropriation to
provide security for the Ameri-
can people during Khalid
Sheikh Mohammed's civilian
trial?
Why does President Obama,
who declared recent actions by
the Cambridge Massachusetts
Police Department as "stupid,"
remain silent about the Attor-
ney General's reported unilat-
eral decision to have the
Christmas Shoe Bomber read


his Miranda rights after only 50
minutes of questioning? During
that initial 50-minute question-
ing, did not Abdulmutallab
boast that he was trained and
supplied by Al Qaeda? Why
then has President Obama re-
mained silent regarding the At-
torney General's action which
after only 50 minutes of ques-
tioning placed Abdulmutallab
under the jurisdiction of the
Department of Justice as a
criminal defendant? Why as a
self professed agent of Al Qaeda
and an enemy combatant was
he not placed under the juris-
diction of the United States mil-
itary?
During the 2008 Presidential
Primary Debates, then presi-
dential candidate Senator
Joseph Biden stated that early
in the new president's term he
will surely be tested by interna-
tional events. Vice President
Biden's prophecy is being ful-
filled. The American people
can only hope President Obama
begins to realize te gravity of
his decisions before it is too
late.

Not a time
for apathy
I read with disgust that the
county commissioners are
thinking about letting the mines
expand anywhere they like.
I have a few simple questions:
Who benefits from giving this
expansion to the mines? How
much tax do the mines pay to
Sumter County? Do the mines
pay for the improvements and
repairs of the roads that their
heavy-duty trucks destroy? How
much more water will the
mines be allowed to suck out of
the aquifer? How do the citi-
zens of Sumter benefit?
Sumter County is classified as
agricultural and the commis-
sioners are trying to rezone it as
industrial. Silently the very
land of Sumter county is
screaming out in despair over
its mutilation.
If the commissioners have
their way, they will turn most of
Sumter County into one big


gravel pit
The majority of these com-
missioners are not from Florida
and have no respect for our
land. These commissioners are
not thinking straight, are plan-
ning to destroy Sumter and
need to be replaced..
Every citizen of this beautiful
county should take action. Write
the commissioners a letter, call
them, make yard signs, do
something to let them know we
do not want this land given over
to the mines. This is not a time
for apathy.

Their own
agenda
I failed to respond to last
week's article about drug deal-
ers using hybrids (I assume
dogs) to guard their drugs and
our county employees trying to
outlaw the hybrids.
In case it hasn't surfaced yet,
the dealers are transporting
their hybrids and their drugs in
a specific kind of truck Let's
start a movement to outlaw this
type of truck That makes as
much sense as outlawing hy-
brids
Ndw, on to this week
Opening the county up for
more mining due to the opera-
tor being sued in South Florida
makes as much sense as the
above. Perhaps a look as the
reasons for the suits would cre-
ate a reason to back away from
the mine interest
Our commissioners will not
listen to any testimony given by
residents because they are not
experts but will take in and be-
lieve any statement made by a
paid expert furnished by the
mine interest.
I am sure that the current
panel of commissioners has
their own agenda that does not
include following the wishes of
the majority of residents.
Our only option is either
learn to live with the dust noise
and the rape of our countryside
or move out of this county alto-
gether.

Grace notes


Nancy NOBFUM
Kennedy

Special to the 1 ..
Times

I spent most of last Sun-
day afternoon in my
recliner chair reading
about an overweight, out-
of-shape guy who decided
to go to Peru and hike the
Inca Trail to Machu Pic-
chu.
He did it because he
wanted to impress a girl
who was also going on the
trip. When he learned
how strenuous the trip
would be, because he did-
n't want to weenie out in
front of the girl, he started
working out
A few months ago I
joined a new gym, which
is challenging me physi-
cally. I'm not training for a
hike or anything, just a
healthier life.
At the gym, I'm sur-
rounded by people,


Faith that takes a licking


younger and older, who
can probably bench press
me. Being around them is
inspiring, and while I'd
rather be stretched out in
my recliner, when I man-
age to make it through the
gym door, the actual exer-
cising is often not too ter-
rible and occasionally
enjoyable.
When I first joined, a
trainer showed me
around and taught me
how to use the machines
and wrote out an exercise
plan to follow.
Each time I go to the
gym, I try to do more than
the time before. I'm trying
to challenge myself to go
beyond what I think I'm
able, to surprise myself.
My muscles often whim-
per and beg me to stop,
curl up on the mat and
take a snooze. But also, as
whiny as my muscles can
be, they concede that it's a


good ache, a healing, nec-
essary pain.
The apostle Paul
likened the spiritual life
to training as an athlete.
Years ago at a Bible study
we got to the passage of
scripture where Paul
talked about how he "buf-
feted" his body. One
woman thought the word
was buffet, as in "all you
can eat," and that maybe
to buffet a body meant to
eat all you can.
We got a good laugh out
of that (and went out to
lunch afterwards).
But, Paul was talking
about physical discipline
and pushing oneself to go
beyond in order to con-
centrate on holiness and
godliness and reaching
heaven fit and ready to
enter the eternal city.
I like the idea of push-
ing myself physically, be-
cause the obvious result is


tightening the jiggles and
looking better in my
clothes. I know that's not
virtuous or admirable in
any way. Just being honest
here.
However, it occurred to
me recently that what I re-
ally want, more than push-
ing myself physically, is to
be pushed spiritually, al-
though I don't want God to
know.
Yes, I am fully aware
that God knows our
thoughts even before we
think them and that trying
to keep a secret from him
is utterly impossible and
ridiculous. But it's what
we all do, isn't it? Play
mind games with God?
The truth is, I'm com-
fortable. I'm not going
through any personal
crises or trials at the mo-
ment and I don't want any.
Who does? Still, I'm see-
ing people around me


stretching and working
out their faith. They're ex-
periencing God doing
amazing things, and I'm
envious, although I don't
want to do anything about
it.
It's like sitting on your
couch watching "The
Biggest Loser" eating
Cheetos and wishing you
could lose 75 pounds.
Wishing won't make it so.
For me, getting off the
couch and to the gym is far
easier than trusting God
to stretch my faith. I've
been there many times be-
fore, and it often involves
pain.
When the guy in the
book hiked to the top of
the mountain in pain with
blistered feet and sore
legs, he thought about the
other people also there
who had taken a train and
then a bus and only hiked
a mile to the top.


He wrote, "But the peo-
ple who took the bus did-
n't experience the city as
we experienced the city.,
The pain made the city
more beautiful."
He said it made him
think about the hard lives
of so many people and the
sacrifices they endure and
how "these people will
see heaven differently
from those who have had
easier lives."
When God pushes and
challenges us, it's painful.
I don't like pain and fight
it with all my might. I'd
rather watch TV I'd much
rather take the train and
the bus.
But it's pain that makes
the city more beautiful,
and something within me
longs to see its full beauty.

"How do I decide which funeral
home to call when the time comes?"


Aside from the requirement that all funeral homes be
licensed by the state, some basic questions you might ask
when selecting a funeral home include: Are they flexible
enough to handle your specific needs? Are decisions made
locally or from an out-of-toum corporate office? Are they
full service? Do they sub-contract services such as
cremation or do they provide these options on-site?
Everyone has different priorities and questions about
funeral pre-planning. We inviteyour questions and we
will respect your priorities. Please call us for a no cost, no

SUMMER COUNTY (FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2010, PAGE 7




Missionaries to Haiti home for help


Lou ELLIOTT JONES
Special to the Times

By all accounts, Beverly
and Richard Felmey of Bell
should be having the time of
their life cruising around the
Caribbean on a tour ship
sending postcards home to
their son, Levy County
Deputy Brian Capps, of Fan-
ning Springs, and their
daughter, Healther Class, of
Bell.
They made it to the
Caribbean, but not as
tourists. The Felmeys oper-
ate the Feed My Sheep Mis-
sion in Montrouis, Haiti. It's
a mission, school and clinic
that the couple has operated
since 1998.
Beverly Felmey is a gradu-
ate of Chiefland High School
and Richard Felmey is a
graduate of Sumter High
School in Bushnell. Their
home church is First United
Methodist Church in High
Springs.
The ministry is about 60
miles from the epicenter of
the devastating center of the
earthquakes that have
shaken Haiti since the first
one hit at 6:35 p.m. on Tues-
day, Jan. 12.
And if things had gone ac-
cording to Richard Felmey's


plans, the couple and five
Pennsylvania students work-
ing at their mission would
have been in Port-au-Prince
when the first massive quake
shook the port city at 6:53
p.m. on Jan. 12.
Felmey was notified two
days before that a tractor and
agricultural supplies he was
expecting had arrived in Port
au Prince and he needed to
come pick them up the next
morning. But Felmey, who
was also expecting medical
supplies for the ministry's
clinic wanted to wait until
they arrived the following
day and pick up everything
in one trip.
"But they said no, I had to
come get the tractor because
they had uncrated it and we
needed to be there by 8 a.m.,"
Richard Felmey said. "That
meant I had to get up at 4
a.m. to drive there and load
up the tractor.
"That annoyed me, but I
didn't know God was watch-
ing out for me."
Once there, the students
took pictures of the port, the
huge yellow crane and the
tractor next to it.
"We got back to our base
and two hours later the
earthquake struck," Felmey
said. "It hit that port harder
than any place else. That big

mission in Haiti to raise money for earthquake relief.


crane, the one the students
took pictures of, was tossed
into the water and blocked
the port."
The Felmeys say Mon-
trouis, which they describe
as "a village of about 40,000
people," was rolling in the
quake.
"We weren't really shook,"
Beverly Felmey said. "But
you could look out and see
the Jeep was rolling.... It was
as if the ground was heav-
ing."
Richard Felmey described


it as "like being in a rubber
raft. It was actually lifting us
up."
The Felmeys say the
Haitians in their village were
immediately praying after
the quake to thank God for
their safety.
In the days after the quake,
the Felmeys realized their
bank was gone, limiting
funds at the mission to what
was on hand and that they
needed to get the visitors
from Pennsylvania back to
their families.
After giving the staff all the
money they had, the Felmeys
and the students made their
way to the only operating air-
field in the country and were
evacuated on a U.S. Air
Force plane. "We have a very
competent staff to run
things," Richard Felmey
said. "We can do more here."
Now the couple is spend-
ing time with their son and
traveling to churches to
spread the word that the
Haitian people need a help-
ing hand from folks in Levy


County and North Central
Florida.
They are also arranging for
cargo boxes of relief supplies
to be sent to Haiti. The first
of what they hope will be
many shipped out on Tues-
day.
"There is a mission in
Jacksonville that ships cargo
boxes of supplies," Richard
Felmey said, detailing the
list of available supplies. "We
are hoping to send 80 con-
tainers. " Felmey said the
containers can hold up to
$100,000 in relief items and
the boxes can be purchased
for $6,000 each.
The Felmeys want folks to
krnow that the Haitians are
hardworking people who are
turning to Christianity, aban-
doning the once officially
sanctioned practice of
voodoo, who want the oppor-
tunity to earn a living and
provide for their children.
"Right now Christianity had
outgrown voodoo," he said.
"If they have one meal a
day, they are grateful and
, praise God," Richard Felmey
said. "If they have two meals
a day they praise God more
for it."
That one meal a day for
many Haitians may be the
reason for the amazing sur-
vival stories like that of the
boy, rescued after 11 days in
a crushed building.
In addition to the small
diet, Felmey noted that many
Haitians live in "itty-bitty"
houses. "They have many
who live in a two-room house
that we would call a storage
shed in size," Richard
Felmey said.
There is no widespread
public school system like the
American system, he said.
Most education is done at
Christian and missionary
schools supported by foreign
congregations.

Refugees of the earth-
quake in Haiti waiting to
catch a plane out are re-
flected in the window of an
unused building at the Port
au Prince airport. The
cracks in the structure,
caused by the quake, show
why it is going unused.

And the Haitians are hard-
working, start their day at
4:30 to 5 a.m. - with prayer
before work, he said.
After the earthquake, Bev-
erly Felmey said, most of the
homes in their village were
standing. "And people were
praying and singing gospel."
The Felmeys see God's
hand in the quake. They see
it as a wake-up call to Amer-
icans and the world.
"The living conditions are
being publicized," he said.
"It's a tragedy of this nature
that can get people's atten-
tion."
At their website, one mes-
sage says it all: Continual
prayer is always appreciated.
After all, we are in HAITI.
But now they need more
than prayer and the couple is
seeking donations.

Hybrid


ban


halted

LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

Commissioner Garry
Breeden didn't like
changes in animal control
codes that included ban-
ning crossbreeds (hybrids)
and collaring cats, as pro-
posed during a County
Commission meeting a few
weeks ago.
His objections sent staff
members back to the draw-
ing board, and last week, at
a subsequent meeting,
Breeden saw most of his
objections heeded.
Breeden objected to ban-
ning hybrid canines, sug-
gesting they weren't any
more dangerous than
Doberman or Pit Bull
breeds.
Breeden also voiced con-
cerns that cats living out-
doors and wearing collars
are susceptible to injury
because they are prone to
getting hung-up on collars.
Instead of banning hy-
brids, commissioners set-
tled on language that
requires county animal
control officers to deter-
mine through "wild-versus-
hybrid characteristics"
whether an animal re-
quires a Florida Wildlife
Conservation (FWC) per-
mit rather than domestic
animal licensing.
FWC does not issue per-
mits for all hybrids.
Cats should wear snap-
open collars, breakaway
collars, or no collar, ac-
cording to the new lan-
guage.
Regarding feral animals,
there were no new changes
in language that allows for
the destruction of a feral
within 24 hours of written
determination that it is a
feral.
The feral determination
is made at the sole discre-
tion of an Animal Control
Services manager or de-
signee.
The term feral, as de-
fined by code, meansany
wild, domestic animal,
whether it was born wild or
reverted to wild state due
to abandonment or lack of
domestication.
According to Director of
Community Affairs Deb
Barsell, between October
of 2008 and September of
2009, the county had to de-
stroy 1,094 cats and 646
dogs.

2010 Census

flexible hours, mileage re-
imbursement and the

munity, according to the
U.S. Bureau of Census.
Hearing tests set
Deaf and Hearing Services
of Lake and Sumter counties
is pleased to announce hear-
ing screenings that will be
conducted at no charge.
Dr. S. Vicki Rezen, Ph.D.,
CCC-A will be at the Deaf and

eral information and answer

formation call 323-0757,


Ribbon cutting ceremony

The Sumter Chamber and Sumter Board of County Commissioners held a rib-
bon cutting ceremony at the intersection of Morse Boulevard and San Marino
Drive. The ceremony signified the completion of what was originally planned
as three separate projects but was unified into one large project, both mini-
mizing public impact within surrounding areas, and conserving fuel taxes.The
project which began in August 2009 was completed by C.W. Roberts Contract-
ing.

South Sumter, Wildwood lifters end year


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

It wasn't their year for ei-
ther the South Sumter
High or Wildwood High
girl weightlifters.
None of the Raider
lifters were able to qualify
Friday, Jan. 29, at the
FHSAA Girls Weightlifting
Sectional Qualifying Meet
at The Villages High
School.
One of the South Sumter
girls would have had to get
a first, second or third
place at the meet. Quali-
fiers advance to the
FHSAA State Girls
Weightlifting Meet Feb. 13
at New Port Richey River
Ridge High School.
Senior Heather Speer


came the closest. She com-
peted in the 119-pound
class. She had a 105-pound
effort in both the bench
press and the clean and
jerk. Her total was 210
pounds.
"I feel pretty good (about
Friday's effort)," Speer
said. "It was one of the best
I have done since I started
lifting. I have done it three
years. I didn't have a lot of
nerves.
"I put everything I had
on the floor out there."
The Raiders didn't have
a great year but their coach
enjoyed their progress.
"I had about 40 when we
first started off," said South
Sumter Coach Vivian
Fields. "After the other
sports start, it started dwin-
dling down. We had 15


lifters but today, we only
brought eight.
"I am very proud of the
girls. They did very well
this year."
At Spruce Creek High
School in Daytona Beach,
Wildwood High girls tried
to qualify for state but fell
short.
Angelia Marrero and
Shaniqua Hunt both fin-
ished seventh in their re-
spective classes at their
sectional qualifying meet.
Marrero was in the 139-
pound class and Hunt was
in the 129-pound class.
Marrero had a 115-
pound bench press and a
115-pound clean and jerk
for a,230-pound total.
Hunt had a 110-pound
bench press and a 105-
pound total on clean and


jerk for a 215-pound total.
This was the first year of
girls weightlifting for Wild-
wood High School. Both
girls are seniors.
The coach knew the odds
were stacked against
"We knew there was
going to be some strong
girls there," said Coach
Dude Thompson. "This is
the strongest sectional in
the state. There were girls
from New Smyrna Beach,
Spruce Creek. There are
girls who were the
strongest I have seen in my
life.
"I thought they (Wild-
wood) did a great job. They
worked hard. They were
very competitive. In the fu-
ture, we will have more
girls involved and have
more success in the fu-


ture."

Sumter Boy Scouts prepare for food drive


BOB REICHMAN
Editor


Local Boy Scouts are in the
process of organizing their an-
nual food drive to help feed
needy families in Sumter County.
The Scouting for Food Good
Turn annually gathers approxi-
mately 1,000 non-perishable food
and personal care items for dis-
tribution to Sumter County citi-
zens in need, according to Duane
Rieker, district scout executive.
This year, the goal has been
raised to 5,000.
The Scouting For Food Good
Turn comes at a time of great


need, as many food pantry
shelves are empty or nearly so,
according to Rieker.
Scouts plan to distribute bags
on Saturday, Feb. 13, and collect
them on Saturday, Feb. 20. There
are more than 300 registered
Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Ex-
plorers in Sumter County.
Then, on that Saturday, the
scout units will bring their food
to the Salvation Army on Main
Street in Bushnell between 10:30
a.m. and 1:30 p.m. for counting.
"About half of the food will stay
with the Salvation Army for them
to distribute and the other half
will go to some local church food
'pantries, "Rieker said. "Our goal


is to have our biggest food drive
ever this year."
Don't be surprised if you find
an empty grocery bag on your
front door Feb. 13.
That's when scouts will come
through area neighborhoods and
leave the bags on front door
knobs.
"We ask that area residents fill
this bag with non-perishable
foods and personal care items
(please, no glass containers) and
place the bag at your front door
by 8 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 20. On
that day, the Scouts will return to
the neighborhood and collect the
bags of food to distribute to area
food banks."


In 1988 the first nationwide
Scouting For Food collection was
launched. In that first year, more
than one million Scouts col-
lected an estimated 65 million
items of non-perishable food
items. The Gulf Ridge Council,
Boy Scouts of America partici-
pated in that first Scouting For
Food Good Turn and has been
coordinating this excellent com-
munity service program each
year since, according to Rieker.
Reasons
As many as 20 million Ameri-
cans go hungry at least a few
days each month. Of these, as
more than 4 million are children.
Hunger is a growing societal


problem of massive proportions
and it prevails in all of our com-
munities and rural areas. Re-
quests for food from needy
families in some areas have in-
creased by as much as 50 per-
cent.
"We are very grateful to our
partners in Scouting For Food:
Publix Super Market Inc, The
Salvation Army, and the various
food pantries that distribute the
food to the hungry and needy,"
Rieker said.
Persons who do not receive an
empty bag or if you would like
more information about how to
participate, please call Duane
Rieker at 556-3713.

UnitedHealth HEROES
grants support local pro-
grams that help children
get and stay healthy

UnitedHealth Group
(NYSE: UNH) has
awarded the Sumter
County School Board a
$500 grant to implement a
program aimed at fighting
childhood obesity in its
community.
The grant is part of the
UnitedHealth HEROES
program, a service-learn-
ing, health literacy initia-
tive designed to encourage
young people, working
through educators and
youth leaders, to create
and implement local
hands-on programs to ad-
dress the issue of child-
hood obesity. Grants were
awarded to schools and
youth-focused, community
center-based programs
that have demonstrated a
clear understanding of the
health risks associated
with pediatric obesity; pro-
,posed'creative solutions to
fighting obesity in their
neighborhoods and com-
munities; and can be easily
implemented, scaled and
measured.
The Sumter County
grant will focus on fifth
grade students at Wild-
wood Elementary School,
educating them about
healthy exercise and
healthy food choices. Stu-
dents will develop a chil-
dren's healthy choices
recipe book and host a
school wide walk-for-
wellness event in the
spring of 2010. All students


in the school will partici-
pate in the walk for well-
ness and copies of the
children's healthy choices
recipe book will be distrib-
uted throughout the
school.
UnitedHealth Group col-
laborated with Youth Serv-
ice America (YSA) to
develop the UnitedHealth
HEROES ' program. To
date, UnitedHealth Group
and YSA have awarded
more than $250,000 in
grants. A list of all the 2009-
2010 grant winners will be
available online at
www.ysa.org.
"With UnitedHealth HE-
ROES, we are helping
young people take action to
improve their overall
health and quality of life in
a way that's not only edu-
cational, but beneficial for
their communities. As peo-
ple become more aware of
health issues through
health literacy and advo-
cacy initiatives they will
make positive changes to
live better lives," said
David Lewis, CEO for Unit-
edHealthcare of Central
and North Florida..
"We believe these grants
will empower teams of stu-
dents to collaborate with
teachers and community
leaders to develop their
own awareness programs
that will make their
schools and neighborhoods
healthier. In reviewing the
grant .applications, we
were inspired by the cre-
ative ideas young people
came up with to help fight
obesity and encourage
healthier living," said
Lewis. "The UnitedHealth


HEROES grants are part of
UnitedHealth Group's
overall commitment to
help stem the rising tide of
obesity, and related
chronic health conditions
like diabetes."
The HEROES service-
learning projects are im-
plemented during the
spring semester and will
culminate on YSA's 21st
Annual Global Youth Serv-
ice Day (GYSD), April 23-
25,2010. GYSD provides an
opportunity for students to
include their projects in a
larger, global youth service
movement that seeks to im-
prove communities in all
50 states and more than
100 countries.

the UnitedHealth HE-
ROES program and serv-
ice-learning is available at

Obesity is a critical prob-
lem in America's class-
rooms. According to 2008
data from the Centers for
Disease Control, one in
three children is obese or
overweight, putting them
on the road to lifelong
chronic conditions like di-
abetes and heart disease.
In Alabama, 36.1 percent of
children ages 10-17 are
considered obese or over-
weight.
Also, according to the
2009 America's Health
Rankings"', if left
unchecked or untreated,
obesity will affect 43 per-
cent of adults by 2018 and
will add nearly $344 billion
in that year alone to the na-
tion's annual direct health
care costs, accounting for
more than 21 percent of


health care spending.
America's Health Rank-
ings is an annual compre-
hensive assessment of the
nation's health on a state-
by-state analysis. It is pub-
lished jointly by United
Health Foundation, the
American Public Health
Association and Partner-
ship for Prevention.

Valentine Queen

Candy, flowers and jewelry are just some of
the gifts given on Valentine's Day. Cards are
another popular gift. Although they're common
today, the only Valentine's Day cards in the
United States in the early 1800s came from
England until a woman named Esther Howland
decided to go into the card-making business.
Esther Howland was, born in 1828 in
Worcester, MA. Her parents owned a bookstore.
One year Howland's father decided to buy some
Valentine's Day cards from England and sell
them in the bookstore. Howland saw the cards
and thought she could make better ones. In
1848, Howland made her first set of cards and
put them in her parents'bookstore to sell.
Several customers liked Howland's cards,
and before long, Howland received more orders
than she could handle. She hired several people
to help her and formed the Howland Company.
The company was a huge success, making
$100,000 a year selling Valentine's Day cards.
Eventually Howland expanded the company,
and by 1870, it had begun making cards for
Christmas and other special occasions. In 1881,
Howland retired and sold the business to the
George C. Whitney Company.
Esther Howland was the valentine queen.
Because of her, Valentine's Day cards have
become an American tradition.


Holiday

for an Animal


Color in each space that contains a letter.


Think about it. Of all the common holidays
celebrated in the United States, only one
involves an animal-Groundhog Day. Every
winter people look to the groundhog to predict
the weather. If the groundhog pops out of its
hole and sees its shadow, six more weeks of
winter are yet to come. If it comes out and
doesn't see its shadow, spring is on the way.
How did the groundhog become so famous?

In the 1700s, farmers in Germany relied on
badgers to tell them when spring was coming.
When the farmers moved to America, they
brought the tradition with them. However,
because there were more groundhogs than
badgers, they changed the tradition to include
the groundhog rather than the badger.

The tradition soon spread and Groundhog
Day was established on February 2.
Today hundreds of people and
businesses recognize Groundhog
Day. There is even an official
groundhog site in
Punxsutawney, PA.

ARIES (March 21 to April
19) Your natural Arian lead-
ership qualities make you
the person others will follow
in tackling that important
project. But don't get so
involved in the work that you
neglect your personal life.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) Aspects favor sorting
through your possessions,
both at work and at home,-to
start giving away what you
don't use, don't need or
don't like. Relax later with
someone special.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) The issues are not quite
as clear as they should be.
That's why you need to
avoid getting involved in dis-
putes between colleagues at
work or between relatives or
personal friends.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) You'll get lots of support
from others if you own up to
your mistake quickly and
include a full and honest
explanation. Learn from this
experience so that you don't
repeat it.
LEO (July 23 to August
22) There might be some
early confusion over a major
move, whether it's at work or
at home. But once you get a
full breakdown of what it
entails, it should be easier to
deal with. Good luck.
VIRGO (August 23 to
September 22) Creating
order out of chaos, even in
the most untidy spaces,
should be no problem for
organized Virgos. So go
ahead and do it, and then
accept praise from
impressed colleagues.
LIBRA (September 23 to
October 22) Whether it's for
business purposes or just for
leisure, a trip might be just


what you need right now.
You would benefit both from
a change of scenery and
from meeting new people.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21) While things
generallygo well this week,
a romantic situation seems to
have stalled. But you can
restart it if you want to. Then
again, maybe this is a chance
to reassess the situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Novem-
ber 22 to December 21) A
meeting that was promised
quite a while back could
finally happen. So be sure
you're prepared with every-
thing you'll need to make
your case sound convincing
and doable.
CAPRICORN (December
22 to January 19) A work-
place blunder could create a
problem down the line
unless you deal with it right
now to see how and why it
happened. Don't be sur-
prised at what you might
learn.
AQUARIUS (January 20
to February 18) This is a
good time to re-sort your pri-
orities and see if adjustments
are called for. Be honest with
yourself as you decide what
to keep, what to discard and
what to change.
PISCES (February 19 to
MIarch 20) Letting yourself
be bathed in the outpouring
of love and support from
those who care for you will
help you get through a diffi-
cult period sooner rather
than later. Good luck.
BORN 'THIS WEEK: You
have an uncanny gift for
reaching out to all people
and creating bridges of
understanding among them.

Critter chatter



Identification on pets is extremely important


Linda
Graves
Humane .
Society
Oh no! Your pet just
darted out the front
door. Or maybe
Fido has dug a hole out of
the backyard and ran off.
A road trip can turn into a
nightmare if your pet sud-
denly escapes the vehicle.
These are just some of the
scenarios that can happen
without warning, and your
pet suddenly becomes one


of thousands of lost ani-
mals. What can you do to
recover your pet?
First and foremost, cau-
tion and prevention will
help some of these inci-
dences from occurring.
Teach your dog or cat
"Stay" to prevent running
out of a door. Check your
yard daily for any escape
holes that may be starting.
And when traveling with
your pet, crates or pet seat
belts are the safest way to
keep your furry compan-
ion in the vehicle in case
of an accident or just from
getting out of a window.
The most important
thing you can do to help
your pet return home is


make sure your pet is al-
ways wearing identifica-
tion. A collar with rabies
tag and a tag with your
name and phone number
on it gives you a 95 per-
cent chance your pet will
be returned. If your dog or
cat is picked up by an ani-
mal control facility, or a
concerned citizen, they
can then call you to let you
know they have your pet.
What if your pet looses
his collar? Many people
microchip their animals.
Animal Control facilities
and veterinarians will be
able to read the mi-
crochip, and help get your
pet back to you. Unfortu-
nately, concerned citizens


may not know to have a
lost pet scanned for a mi-
crochip.
It is highly recom-
mended that you use both
the identification tags and
the microchip as means to
recover your lost pet.
Okay, so you have dis-
covered that your pet is
lost. We understand all the
emotions you are feeling:
fear, worry, panic! Here is
what you do: Start imme-
diately searching the area
where your pet was last
seen. With luck, your dog
or cat will come back
when called.
If you are not able to
find your pet, start calling
your local and surround-


ing counties' humane so-
cieties, rescue groups, an-
imal control facilities, and
veterinarians. Make flyers
with a color picture if pos-
sible, of your lost pet and
put them at as many
places as you can. Be sure
to bring a flyer to the hu-
mane society and animal
control facility. Put a lost
advertisement in local
newspapers. Don't stop
here!
Check every other day
at your local shelter or an-
imal control facility. Not
just by calling, but in per-
son. This is very important
because so many dogs or
cats may fit your pet's de-
scription. Only you can


identify your dog or cat.
Owners are guaranteed
only three business days
to claim their pet at the
Sumter County Animal
Control facility. Animals
can then be euthanized or
adopted to a new owner.
Remember, you never
know when it could hap-
pen. In a split second,
your pet could dash out
and become lost. Or a nat-
ural disaster can separate
you from your pet
Taking precautions now
can prevent a heartbreak-
ing separation from your
pet. Keep identification
on Fido and Fluffy, and
have your pet mi-
crochipped.
