'Extreme amounts' of



body parts found on 1-75


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) was investigating
the discovery of "body
parts" found scattered
across three northbound
lanes of Interstate 75 at
County Road 464 near the
boundary of Sumter and
Marion counties early
Wednesday morning.
Limited information
was available about the
incident by press time
Wednesday.
Lt. Patrick Riordan,
FHP district spokesman,
said that a female pedes-
trian was struck by "nu-
merous vehicles" during


Lt. Patrick Riordan, FHP district spokesman, said that a fe-
male pedestrian was struck by "numerous vehicles" during
nighttime hours on 1-75 in the northbound lanes.


nighttime hours on 1-75 in
the northbound lanes.
No vehicles involved in
the initial strikes re-
mained at the scene, ac-
cording to Riordan.
The interstate was
closed from 7 a.m. until
10:15 a.m. due to "extreme
amounts of body parts,"
scattered across three
travel lanes, according to
an FHP report.
"It's a tragic incident
made much worse be-


cause none of the drivers
involved in the first
strikes stopped or called it
in," said Riordan.
FHP spokesman Sgt.
Steve Gaskins said his
troop was involved in traf-
fic control, even though
the incident occurred
north of his district.
FHP was dispatched at
6:48 a.m. after receiving
reports of the fatality, ac-
cording to an FHP crash
report.


FHP closed all lanes of
1-75 while the incident
was being investigated
and Sumter and Marion
sheriff's deputies assisted
FHP by rerouting traffic
along U.S. 301 through
Wildwood and other
areas.
Gaskins said traffic was
diverted off 1-75 at Exit
329 (the Wildwood exit) by
his troopers.
No additional informa-
tion was available at press
time.

Mother Nature cooperated Saturday by delivering an overcast sky without rain and temperatures several
degrees cooler than the day before the Linden Cemetery picnic. Please see story and photos inside.


COLD




CASES



Laborer's body found

in Wildwood lot


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

This is the fourth
story in a series ofsto-
ries featuring 12 un-
solved murders
contained in the
Sumter County Sher-
iff's Office Cold Case
File. During the up-
coming weeks, the
Sumter County Times
will publish informa-
tion about each of the
murders.
MARILYN
ELIZABETH
MCKENZIE
Marilyn Elizabeth
McKenzie was a sea-
sonal farm laborer.
She left Pennsylva-
nia in November 1975
to pick apples and she
also traveled with la-
borers picking water-
melons between
Immokalee and Wild-
wood.
On July 27, 1976 at
approximately 10:12
a.m. the skeletal re-
mains of McKenzie,
17, were discovered
in a wooded lot off
Jackson Street in
Wildwood.
The body was dis-
covered by two broth-
ers clearing a lot at
the north end of the
street, according to
sheriff's department
records.
Investigators sus-
pect that her death
occurred about two
months earlier.
At the time, DNA
testing was not avail-
able to help deter-
mine her identity. Her
remains were posi-
tively identified by
chest X-rays sent to
the National Museum
of Natural History at
the Smithsonian In-
stitute in Washington,
D.C., said sheriff's
Major Gary Brannen.
At the time of her
death, she had on a
denim jacket, a navy
blue striped shirt and
sneakers. "She had $5
in her pocket and a
wristwatch, so she


Marilyn McKenzie
probably wasn't
robbed," Brannen
said.
An old rusty key to
what was then the
Days Inn in Wildwood
was recovered from
her pocket and it re-
mains in the evidence
file.
Few clues exist in
the case. She is even
hard to identity by the
small photograph
contained in her file.
While it was diffi-
cult to determine how
McKenzie died, inves-
tigators suspect that
she was murdered
and that she had been
beaten just prior to
her death.
Investigators
learned of her iden-
tity from a telephone
call from McKenzie's
mother in Augusta,
Ga., Brannen said.
The woman had
heard rumors that her
daughter had been
beaten or murdered.
McKenzie was pos-
sibly last seen in the
Wildwood area get-
ting into a 1970s
model blue and white
Buick Electra 225
with two unknown
black males.
Anyone with any
possible information,
please contact Major
Gary Brannen at the
Sumter County Sher-
iff's Office at 793-
0222.

It was a community ef-
fort. There was the imme-
diate family from here in
Sumter County and the
cousins who drove up from
Tampa. There were friends
and co-workers, bosses and
business owners who do-
nated and served and there
were strangers who came
out to buy a dinner and

Fire leads to marijuana bust


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

A Webster man was ar-
rested for allegedly culti-
vating marijuana plants
when firefighters discov-
ered some plants in his
barn while extinguishing a
fire sparked by an over-
heated air conditioner.
Deputies were dis-
patched after the arrested
man's wife called them
about a fire on her prop-
erty at S.W 49th Plaza
around 6:35 a.m. Thursday,
June 23, according to the
arrest report.


John D. Graves, 64, told
deputies he had left an air
conditioner running in a
"closet space" in his barn
overnight.
"I have eight marijuana
plants growing for my per-
sonal use," said Graves,
when deputies asked why
he cooling a "closet space"
in the barn.
After Sumter County
Fire Rescue extinguished
the flames, Graves showed
deputies his "marijuana
grow house" that included
eight marijuana plants be-
tween three and four
inches tall.


Graves told deputies he
grows marijuana for his
personal use and showed
them plant pots with plant
residue from a previous
harvest and a bucket con-
taining a "large amount" of
marijuana leaves, accord-
ing to the report.
Deputies confiscated a
total of 244 grams of mari-
juana between the eight
plants and the cultivated
marijuana leaves found in
the bucket.
Graves was transported
to the Sumter County De-
tention Center and jailed
in lieu of $10,000 bond.

Changes to the Bush-
nell Fall Festival are ap-
proved by the city and
they represent a mix of
cut backs, fee increases
and limitations on ven-
dors.
The theme of the 2011
annual Bushnell Fall
Festival is "Rock Around
the Clock" and the event
kicks off at 10:30 a.m.

Vendor Categories -


Info/sales w/o sales
Activities/sales
Games and rides
Small Arts&Crafts
Non-profit fund raiser
(raffles/crafts/activities)
Non-profit small food
(1-2 items or spaces)
Large retail
(3 or more spaces)
Large food
(3 or more spaces)


Saturday, Oct. 15. Festi-
val entertainment is
capped off by a Street
Dance from 5 p.m. until 7
p.m.
The festival survived
budget cuts but the event
was shortened and does
not include any fire-
works this year. Also, the
popular festival will be
limited to vendors from
Sumter County. Addi-
tionally, booth prices
have increased and pa-
rade entries will be


charged new fees.
Hosting the Fall Festi-
val costs the city's tax-
payers at least $25,000
per year, according to a
city report.
Another significant
change will be the
arrangement of a "Food
Court", where all food
vendors, large and small,
will be placed around a
square block, with cov-
ered eating areas in the
center.
New fees for parade


entries include a $5
entry fee per vehicle (or
group) for all non-profit
organizations, beauty
queens, sweethearts, po-
litical candidates,
churches and charities.
There is a $10 fee for
business vehicles (a
truck and trailer is con-
sidered one vehicle).
There is a $25 fee for any
parade entry wishing to
be judged.

Protecting pets during the summer


On a hot Florida
day the tempera-
ture in your car
can quickly gets
high enough to
kill your pet!

Sumter County Animal
Services Team is provid-
ing educational tips to res-
idents on protecting the
welfare of domestic ani-
mals during the dog days
of summer.
On a hot Florida day the
temperature in your car
can quickly gets high
enough to kill your pet!
The best advice is to never
leave your pet in your car
even with the windows
cracked.
If you see an animal left
in a vehicle, have some-
one immediately enter the
business where the owner
may be and have the
owner paged until some-
one comes forward.
Make sure someone
stays with the vehicle,
keeping the dog in sight at
all times. A situation can
quickly change from bad


to worse.
In Sumter County call
Animal Services at 352-
793-1470 during regular
business hours (9AM-
5:30P, M-F) or at other
times call the law enforce-
ment if necessary. Animal


cruelty is a crime in
Florida, FS 828.12 (1).
Keep your pet safe from
heat exhaustion this sum-
mer!
Here are a few tips to
ensure your pet's safety:
Always give your pet ac-


cess to water.
Never leave your pet in
the car, leave them at
home instead.
Pavement is hot and can
burn foot/paw pads.
Pets can sunburn, espe-
cially white ones.

Linden event



means community


A n overcast sky and a threat of rain didn't stop sup-
- porters from attending the annual Linden Ceme-
I ery Picnic last Saturday
While the event was speeded up to ensure that attendees
stayed dry, there was plenty of mingling, eating and enjoy-
ment as the event organizers worked tirelessly to help raise
money for the upkeep of the community cemetery
Families with long ties to Sumter County traditionally at-
tend the yearly event and the sense of community that
spills over from the gathering is undeniable.
From grandparents to infants, the pavilions at the ceme-
tery are filled with people conversing while munching on
a barbecue meal and sipping homemade lemonade.
It is an event that is rich in tradition with older partici-
pants passing down stories about the picnic that span the
decades.
Volunteerism is the steady engine that has powered the
popular south county event for 114 years. In a visit to the
kitchen area, one will see volunteers lining either side of
the facility's long stainless-steel table busily preparing the
barbecue sauce, potato salad, chicken and beef dinners
and other culinary delights.
Last year volunteers sold over 830 meals, this year, about
950. Volunteers do much of their work at home, baking the
pies and cakes that bring thousands of dollars used to
maintain Linden Cemetery and ensure that the picnic re-
mains an enduring success.
However, the Linden Cemetery Picnic is much more than
a fundraiser, it's an annual reunion of community that re-
vitalizes old friendships and preserves and strengthens the
bonds between current residents and those who return to
their roots each year from different areas of the country. It
must be comforting to feel that no matter how far one wan-
ders from Linden and south Sumter, he or she can always
come home, even if only for a day - a very special day in a
rather special community.



A step beyond




Neither rain, nor



sleet, nor gloom...


Brenda -
Loddear

Staff Writer

I have to say, I was a little
surprised during one of
last week's thunder-
storms. The postal oath
talks about getting the mail
to residents, no matter
what, through all types of
trials and challenges. While
she wasn't a mail carrier
with parcels, she was the
heart of the matter.
I had just run across the
Walmart parking lot in the
pouring rain, now soaked
from my little excursion. As
I put my car in reverse I no-
ticed movement in my
rearview mirror. I stopped
and took a good look to
judge where the person was
and saw that it was a young
woman, late teens, early
twenties on the next row
over. She had taken her
buggy back to the cart corral
and was heading back to
her car - or so I thought. In
the pouring rain, she
grabbed a second cart and
took it to the corral too. I'm
not sure how many times
she made the effort, but I
know she was soaked.
At first I thought she
might be on staff at the store
or maybe helping her
boyfriend out. Then I won-


dered if she needed that
particular parking space.
As I drove away, she was
finally heading to her vehi-
cle, wearing a sleeveless
shirt and I'm sure, chilled.
I didn't think much more
about it until later, when I
was standing in another
store and noticed a couple
making a purchase. I real-
ized it was the same young
woman and mentioned to
her that I had seen her put-
ting all the carts away.
Without hesitation, she
said that all the carts were
left in the handicapped spot
and it would make it impos-
sible for someone with a
disability to park without
getting soaked. That was it,
plain and simple - she was
serving others.
While some folks had self-
ishly left their carts in a
spot that would make things
that much more difficult for
a person already facing a
challenge, she had self-
lessly ran through the rain
to give.
It's nice to know that
there are some who live
their kindness and wear
their integrity, no matter
what. That there are some
who "Neither rain, nor
sleet, nor gloom..." will hin-
der in giving.
How about you - seen
any acts of kindness lately?
Look for this column at
www sumtercountytimes.co
m as a blog - you can al-
ways share any acts of kind-
ness you've seen.

Letters to the editor


Why are Republicans
staying home?
When the Tea Party loses its
political fever, the GOP grows
more uneasy In a recent poll by
a Republican pollster, Alex Pat-
ton found that registered
Florida voters said the Tea
Party did not represent their
views. Independent voters look
unfavorably on the Tea Party by
3 to 1. Thus, the GOP has a prob-
lem: If GOP candidates hug the
Tea Party, they will lose; if the
GOP candidates ignore the Tea
Party, they also lose. (St Peters-
burg Times, June 26, p. 3B)
In another poll, The War
Room Logistics survey found
that 54 percent of Florida voters
had a negative view of Rick
Scott, and some of that unfavor-
able view rubs off on the Tea
Party Republicans are parents,
and they do not like those Re-
publican cuts in Florida educa-
tion.
Before the 2010 election, Re-
publicans in Washington prom-
ised to focus on jobs, jobs, jobs.
Then six months after the elec-
tion, Republicans voted to sup-
port the Paul Ryan Medicare
reform proposal which is an ef-
fort to balance the federal
budget by cutting the current
Medicare system and offering
future retirees a voucher sys-
tem so they can buy their own
insurance. The Ryan plan in-
tends to kill Medicare. (Isn't that
what Dubya tried to do?) Those
unwise proposals and the hot-
headed Tea Party candidates
have the GOP on slide to defeat
in 2012.
Here is another indication
that the GOP is in deep doodoo.
Indiana Governor Mitch
Daniels, a GOP favorite, said he
will not run for president be-
cause his wife doesn't want him
to run. What? Other big-time
Republicans are backing away
from the 2012 election: Jeb
Bush said NO, Mike Huckabee
said NO, Chris Christie said NO.
That leaves a thin group made
up of Michele Bachman, Rick
Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and
a couple of people from the
Mormon Church.
Why are the big-time Repub-
licans holding back in 2012?
Obama's successful decision to
go after OBL, and his welcome
decision to bring troops home is
in bold relief against the Bush
days of "Bring it on," and the
Bush Hollywood landing on an
aircraft carrier with a banner
that proclaimed "Mission Ac-
complished." It was all bluster.
Voters know that Obamacare
is good for America's health.
They also know that we are
safer because OBL is dead.
They will be thrilled to see our


military forces returning to the
United States in a few days. The
Tea Party cannot compete with
that record. Smart Republicans
know that and they are staying
home.
Best,
Robert WesolowsM

Bushnell streets are
CSX's rail yard
Why is the City of Bushnell
letting CSX use our city streets
as a rail yard? Yes you heard it
right a rail yard. It seems more
and more the railroad is using
Bushnell as a parking lot and a
switching yard changing rail
cars blocking our streets for
hours on end multiple times a
week
This is getting old and the
county needs to wake up and fix
this problem. We the tax payers
of this county pay to maintain
these roads and we expect to be
able to use them. The other
night I tried to use the street in
front of Hungry Howies and it
was blocked forcing me and
about 100 other drivers to turn
around to find another route
because the road was blocked. I
came back later through there
thinking that CSX would surely
be gone after three hours but
guess what? That's right they
still had the road blocked.
If CSX wants to keep blocking
the roads we pay for then they
should have to pay for it as well
or the county needs to deduct
this amount from the tax payers
as we are paying for something
we can't utilize.
What happens if an emer-
gency happens and emergency
personnel go the wrong way and
end up having to back track to
go around this mess? Yep some-
one could die and if they do that
makes CSX and The city Of
Bushnell responsible for dam-
ages as a result. I think one good
lawsuit and this problem then
will get taken care of.
CSX has a rail yard in Wild-
wood and should be using that
not our city streets. If someone
can get a petition going to have
something done about this
please give me a copy as I will
sign it and I am sure a lot more
people will do the same be-
cause we are all sick and tired
of this mess and it's high time
someone in our city and county
government do their jobs and
do something about this.

Response to article
I am writing in response to
the article, "Retired vet ar-
rested for animal cruelty," pub-
lished on June 16.
My family and I live close to
Mr. Estrallas-Roman's second
home in Sumterville. He visits
his home almost everyday to
take care of all of his animals.
He has invited us over, on sev-
eral occasions, to see all of his
animals. He takes great pride
and care of all of the animals on
his property
I was surprised to see there
was a charge of animal cruelty
brought against Mr. Estrallas-
Roman. When I read the article,
I failed to see where there was a
case for animal cruelty The ar-
ticle states he paid someone to
take care of his animals and he
complied with all of the actions
suggested by the Humane Soci-
ety These do not sound like be-
haviors of someone that is cruel
to animals.
I am greatly disappointed in
the Humane Society's hasty de-
cision to arrest Mr. Estrallas-
Roman. The message the
humane society has sent is that
it doesn't matter if you hire
someone to care for your ani-
mals and follow their (the Hu-
mane Society)
recommendations, in the end
you will be charged, arrested
and prosecuted for something
you are innocent of.
The Humane Society seems
far more interested in patting
themselves on the back than
taking the time to thoroughly in-
vestigate an unfounded com-
plaint. In trying to help an
animal, the Humane Society,
has disregarded and over-
looked the basic rights of a
human being.

The crowd shown is
only a small portion of
the people who volun-
teered for the fundraiser.
Coordinator Colleen
Cason said there were
an estimated 45 people
who volunteered their
time and effort to help
raise money, along with
the hundreds who gave
money to the cause,
through general dona-
tion, dinners and car
washes.






HELP

continued from Page 1

make a donation - all to
help out local resident
Cory Heding and his fam-
ily Heding was in a motor-
cycle crash earlier this
year and is recuperating,
unable to work for about a
year.
The volunteers washed
more than two dozen cars
and served over 250
smoked chicken dinners,
the weekend before last,
according to Heding's sis-
ter and event coordinator
Colleen Cason.
Along with family, first
up were Tim and Becky
Knight. Cason said he read
about her brother in the
Sumter County Times and
wanted to help. He con-
tacted Cason "He sug-
gested we do the dinners
and helped me coordinate
the benefit."
She couldn't say enough
about the Knight family's
contribution.
"He was my backbone -
if it wasn't for Tim, I don't
know what I' would have
done really"
Cason said Heding's boss
Jack Hatcher opened the
Bushnell Tire shop for
their use out of the sun,
restrooms, air conditioning
and event location.
Then there was family
Cason wasn't surprised by
support from relatives in
Tampa, but she was sur-
prised by how many She
said 13 family members
travelled up and spent the
day helping out.
With her relatives they
had about 45 people come
out to volunteer their time
and effort.
'And it took every one of
us," she said.
"It was unbelievable."
Her husband's boss
Kenny Smith won the raf-
fle and his company, Vul-
can, donated the grill for
cooking, tables, chairs and
another cooker, as well as
paying for the half the
chicken.
They raised over $5,000
through the benefit.
Cason's goal is to keep the
family afloat for the year
that he can't work. His wife
Jensy Heding is employed,
but it's not enough to cover
everything. They're pur-
chasing a home and Cason
is trying to help him meet
the mortgage payment and


cover other bills.
Cason and Heding are
two of five siblings and he's
eight years younger than
her. The two of them have
always had a "very, very
close bond," she said,
adding that, "He was the
baby and I took him every-
where with me and did
everything with him," even
pulling him around in his
wagon when he was little.
"He's very special to
me."
But Cason said she didn't
choose to help Heding just
because he's her brother.
'Just the thought of an in-
dividual going through
what they're going through
- they needed help bad."
And helping out isn't new
to Cason or to Heding. She
said they hear about fami-
lies who need help for the
holidays and they'll work
on providing for that fam-
ily.
"He's always been there
for me - he's been there to
help others."
Cason was grateful for all
the donations from the
community, including Wal-
mart and Center Hill who
gave cash.


Cason's husband
Brett and volunteer
Gary Starling
cooked, as Mark
Wilson and Jack
Hatcher chat in the
background.










Cayden and Logan
Pike, finish up with
dessert.


"Porters Jewelers made
the fliers, Trianglers made
the tickets, Herb and Peg's
donated all the cole slaw
and Purcell's provided an
outdoor tent.
Cason said her brother
was overwhelmed by the
community support from
the business donations to
the individuals who came
in to purchase dinners or
have their car washed.
Although Heding is recu-
perating from the crash
and they are concerned
about finances, "He's got so
much to be thankful for,"
Cason said, adding that,
"all these people that came
together for him, is God's
doing."
They stayed fairly busy
throughout the day, until
about 4 p.m.
Cason was sure to keep
others in mind when the
event was over - she do-
nated the remaining food
to "The Refuge" shelter in
Bushnell.
The money was donated
to her to purchase food for
the benefit, so she felt it
was only right to donate
what was left over and
"pass it on."

'B I don't want a cheap funeral, but I can save a lot

of money by planning now...so why not?

I'm a person who plans ahead and I'm also pretty careful with
, the money I make.
Since someday my family and I will need a reliable funeral home,
why not make my arrangements now and lock in a low price that I can
control?
controlThe old saying is true: you can't take your money with you. But,
if I make my plans now I can make the decisions on all the details that
matter to me, including the cost, and that's like leaving more money

Students become 'creators of information'


Taylor Kellogg, Devin Russell, Brianna Sweet and Jordan Bailey imported pho-
tos to create their own movies during the technology class.

A trip to Mars, a peek at
Mt. Rushmore and technol-
ogy were the focus early
this summer as teens and
pre-teens headed for En-
viro-Tech Summer Camp.
The locally written cur-
riculum was implemented
this year at middle school
and high school campuses
around the county With
lessons in technology, the
students have learned they
can read water and soil
temperatures, find spots
around the world and even
view their own location
from the sky through
Google Earth.
They used global posi-
tioning systems to locate
and view and Google Earth
for a "scavenger hunt." Uti-
lizing laptops, the com-
puter became an entirely
new experience for the stu-
dents as they realized all
the different things they
were able to do on them.
Many of them said that be-
fore the classes, their only
experience was for gam-
ing.
They learned to use flash
drives to transfer and carry
information, to do
searches, download photos
and even make movies.
One of the students said
the gear they were using
was like using a big DS
gaming system that doesn't
fold.
Student Ginette Comes
said she learned that com-
puters pick up "cookies
from the Internet." Student
Dominic VanHorn said he
learned how to save things
from the Internet and stu-
dent AJ. Buschena said he
learned how to update in-
formation, while James
Adams learned how land
was formed and Kristin
Powell learned how sen-
sors collect different infor-
mation.
The courses were taught
at Wildwood Middle High
School, South Sumter High
School and South Sumter
Middle School by a total of
16 teachers and students
even took a field trip to the
Sumter Environmental Ed-
ucation Center in Center
Hill. That's where they


gathered their outdoor in-
formation and where their
finished products will be
put on display in kiosks.
Curriculum coordinator
Bridget Veal said they
were targeting the students
changing schools, moving
into the sixth and ninth
grades.

Help stop child
abuse
The cruel and callous
death of 2-year-old Caylee
Anthony shocked and hor-
rified central Floridians
and the nation. The death
of little 10 year old Nubia
Barahona, a victim of
abuse and neglect, who
was tortured and allegedly
killed by Jorge and Car-
men Barahona, her adop-
tive father and mother, left
most of us outraged. In re-
sponse to increased media
coverage of such cases, the
number of calls to the
Florida Department of
Children and Families
state abuse hotline has sky-
rocketed and the number
of children entering the
child welfare system is
edging upward.
Here in the 5th Judicial
Circuit, which includes
Marion, Lake, Citrus,
Sumter and Hernando
counties, more than 1,500
children, most of whom are
below 10 years of age, are
involved with the depend-
ency court system. Nearly
all of these children have
been removed from their
homes and placed with a
relative or in foster care.
State and national statis-
tics show such children are
at higher risk for depres-
sion and anxiety, school
failure and impaired social
relationships. Many are in
danger of becoming in-
volved with the juvenile
justice system.
The Guardian ad Litem
Program, a predominately
volunteer based organiza-
tion, advocates on behalf of
abused and neglected chil-
dren whose cases are in
the court system. Trained
volunteers, who are fo-
cused on interrupting the
cycle of abuse one case at a
time, take the actions nec-
essary to ensure "their"
kids are safe, protected
and given every opportu-
nity for future success.
For readers, who had a
visceral reaction to the
aforementioned cases and
wish to do something to stem
the tide of abuse and neg-
lect, I suggest they call Lynn
Sennett, Guardian ad Litem

It's the law, period!
For someone to suggest
that because a lawmaker
attempted to repeal a law
in 1995 and failed, that said
lawmaker should not abide
by and hold others ac-
countable to abide by the
law as it stands on the
books is ridiculous!
It's the law! It's their job
to abide by and make sure
others abide by the law. To
suggest that this is a "flip-
flop" of a lawmaker's be-
lief is totally without merit.
Regardless of lawmaker's
personal thoughts on a par-
ticular law, it is his or her
duty to enforce said law for
as long as it remains the
law of the land, period.
I find it funny that the
Democrats would have the
stomach to bring up the
subject of "flip-flops" when
their "Golden Boy" our
Pres. Obama is the "King of
Flip-Flops" as I see it! If
you want to check it out
just Google "Obama flip
flops" and look at the pages
of documentation! I would
say after his current job is
over (end of 2012) he could
get a job at any circus side-
show as a quick-change
artist! Let's see, if I list just
a few of the positions that
he has changed his mind
on like, campaign finance,
Gitmo, NAFTA, troop with-
draw from Iraq, the surge
in Iraq, Afghanistan, Is-
rael-control of Jerusalem,
offshore oil drilling, mis-
sile defense, meeting with
our enemies without pre-
conditions-Iran and N.
Korea, Darfur, importing
RX drugs, federal spend-
ing freeze, televised
healthcare negotiations,
individual mandate for
healthcare, and of course
the War Powers Act! You
see our president said it in
his own words in 2007 and I
quote, "The president can-
not unilaterally authorize
military action in a situa-
tion that does not involve
stopping an actual or im-
minent threat to the na-
tion." Hummm isn't that
exactly what he is doing in
Libya? Let's not forget the
recent release of oil from
our strategic reserve.
Seems in 2005 he can be
quoted as saying, "This
supply is for emergency
use only; it should not be
tapped to provide a short
term decrease in gas


Jerry Eubanks


Mr E's death, said they were
amused many times when
thinking of how their
Florida-Sumter County
news came to them by way of
Alabama. I will miss our
conversations and sharing of
life experiences with him.
Former City of Bushnell
Councilman, Frank Hamil-
ton, served on the City Coun-
cil with Mr Eubanks and me.
Frank said, "my most vivid
memory of Jerry was the
time he painted himself
blue like a "Smurf" for Hal-
loween and drove around
Sumter County as the blue
Pappy Smurf character" I
thought this was cool as most
bank presidents are per-
ceived as being reserved but
Jerry had a sense of humor."
Also Frank said Jerry was
assessable. When Frank and
Jerry served as City Council
members, Jerry was very
helpful in explaining finan-
cial issues so Frank and oth-
ers could understand. Frank
added Jerry was always
helpful on banking and
other matters over the years
when he was Florida Na-
tional Bank president.
In notifying several for-
mer employees, I received
these statements. One em-
ployee stated she was al-
ways treated fairly by Mr
Eubanks. He helped his em-
ployees' families through so
many hard times personally
and financially. Another for-
mer employee said she was
thankful for Mr. Eubanks'
leadership.
She went on to say that Mr
Eubanks was a wonderful
boss, friend, and community
leader. He was loved and
greatly respected in our
community as was all of his
family

prices." It seems that his
stance on these subjects
depend on the audience he
is speaking to at the time.
Well from where I sit this
would make our president
the "King of flip-flops" in
our nation, but I'll leave
that up to you to decide!

Obama's Big Lie
"Spending is Simulative"
- that is a half truth! Gov-
ernment spending is simu-
lative if you spend existing
dollars in an existing econ-
omy, if you have to borrow
those dollars and then in-
crease taxes to pay those
dollars back, that is de-
pressive or counter pro-
ductive!
The left keeps following
the Keysian theory telling
us that tax cuts hurt
revenues. " In current
budget negotiation they
keep saying we need to in-
crease revenues, we can't
cut taxes now!
It is said, that if you don't
learn from history, you are
doomed to repeat it! So
let's take a look back at the
historical data on "tax
cuts."
Historically, we have had
three marginal rate tax
cuts. And in each case, the
revenue to the U.S. treas-
ury increased significantly
In 1920 we had the


Maryfrances Terrell
Bryant stated Mr. Eubanks
created a job for her in 1980
because he knew she
needed a job. Because of Mr
Eubanks taking a chance on
her, she was able to advance
to other positions within
Florida National and its suc-
cessors. Maryfrances stated,
"I have so much to thank Mr
Eubanks for besides his be-
lieving in me, he donated his
time to video my wedding in
1987 to (the late) Frank Ter-
rell. I treasure the video to
this day and will cherish it
forever" Maryfrances added
"May He rest in peace."
Laurie Thompson, an At-
torney in Delray Beach and
a friend of the Eubanks and
their son Brian, had much to
say about the Eubanks. Ac-
cording to Laurie, "Sumter
County lost a great man with
the passing of Jerry Eu-
banks. Even though he has
lived with his wife, Susan, in
Mexico for more than a
decade, he will always be re-
membered by those of us old
enough to remember as
president of the Florida
Bank at Bushnell. As a
banker in a small town, he
represented what bankers
are supposed to be, i.e., a
leader in the community. He
really cared about the town,
county, and its people. He
made loans to people that
were good for both the bank
and the borrower. Today
when there are record fore-
closures, it is noteworthy
that Mr. Eubanks never fore-
closed on a home. If a bor-
rower got into trouble Mr.
Eubanks would work with
them. He also made sure
that the high school band
had enough money to go on
trips, the little league and

Coolidge tax cut; JFK cut
taxes in the 60's and Rea-
gan in the 80's.
The Coolidge adminis-
tration cut the top mar-
ginal tax rates from 73
percent to 24 percent. The
resulting effect was the
economy grew 59 percent
from 1921 to 1929. Effec-
tively increasing the Fed-
eral Treasury from $719
million in 1921 to over $1.1
billion 1929. That is a 61
percent increase! During
this time period, there was
zero inflation with a more
than six percent annual
growth rate.
During the Kennedy ad-
ministration, marginal tax
rates were cut from 91 per-
cent to 70 percent and the
economy grew by 42 per-
cent, that was an average
of 5 percent a year from
1961 to 1965 and tax rev-
enue to the U.S. Treasury
was increased by 62 per-
cent. If you adjust for infla-
tion, revenues rose by
one-third.
Under Ronald Reagan,
marginal tax rates were cut
from a top of 70 percent to
28 percent. Revenues to
the U.S. Treasury almost
doubled. According to the
budget of the U.S. Govern-
ment, for 1997, Office of
Management and Budget.
Revenues increased from
around $500 billion in 1980
to $1.1 trillion in 1990.

Is osjm o


girls' softball teams had
money for uniforms, and the
children of the community
received something from
Santa on Christmas morn-
ing. Mr Eubanks understood
that it was the banker's job
to provide capital to the
small businesses and indi-
viduals in the community,
not gambling money for fat
cats on Wall Street. We could
use more people in the
banking industry today with
the ethics and morals exhib-
ited by Jerry Eubanks." Lau-
rie, a former resident of
Lake Panasoffkee, worked
part time at Florida Na-
tional Bank (Florida Bank at
Bushnell) during her sum-
mer and school breaks after
high school before moving
away for college.
When asked, Joan Merritt,
former employee of Florida
National, said "Mr. Eubanks
was a good boss and helpful
to all. He loved people and
the community. He went out
of his way to help others.
Many times I saw him take
money out of his pocket to
help someone that the bank
could not"
Winnie Merritt, another
Florida National Employee
and Eubanks family friend,
said she remembers Mr Eu-
banks spending time with
people needing money
rather than acting like a big
shot and pushing them out
of his office and on their
way. He had a heart. Over
the years, we all became like
family. He was very under-
standing when we had fam-
ily emergencies and needed
time away from the bank."
Betsy Ruano, Library
Board member and chair-
man of the Bushnell Fall
Festival for ten years, re-
membered Mr. Eubanks for
his generosity to the Bush-
nell Library. "He donated
his City Councilman's salary

In every case, the per-
sonal income taxes paid by
the so-called-rich in-
creased after their tax
rates were cut. The top 10
percent of earners during
the Reagan administration
paid 48 percent of the in-
come tax collected from
1981 and 1988.
Now what were the ef-
fects of tax policy during
Bush and Clinton years?
How did the Clinton in-
crease in taxes change in
the revenue received by
the Treasury? Harvard
professor of economics
Martin Feldstien, esti-
mated that the U.S. Treas-
ury would have collected
two-thirds more revenue
during the first three years
of the Clinton presidency
had his administration not
raised taxes. During Bush,
Tax revenues in 2006 were
18.4 percent of gross do-
mestic product which is ac-
tually above the 20-year,
40-year, and 60-year histor-


to the Bushnell Library
when it was trying to survive
on donations for the most
part. It enabled us to buy
books and keep the library
open during "hard" finan-
cial times. I also remember
him being a kind gentleman
that always helped with the
Fall Festival by donations
and his wisdom on putting
on these big events."
Vince Ruano, Bushnell
City Manager, remembers all
of Mr Eubank's time, effort,
and donations to fill the
hundreds of bags of candy
for the Christmas celebra-
tion in Bushnell that he and
Fred Dietz started for years
as the Sumter Civic Club.
Santa's arrival kicked off the
evening's festivities and
gave every child a goody bag
filled with treats he and
Fred Dietz "fixed up." Vince
went on to say Mr. Eubanks
was a valuable ally while he
served as city councilman
and vice mayor providing
advice and help to him and
the city employees.
We all know Mr. Eubanks
wasn't perfect but his life
touched all of us that knew
him in some way It is nice to
recall the pleasant memo-
ries of him and his years of
service to the bank and the
community. He did a lot for
Sumter County, his employ-
ees, and the City of Bush-
nell. Many people
remember him with kind
thoughts. It was a delight for
many us to know that he was
enjoying life doing the
things he enjoyed, traveling
all over the world plus vol-
unteering in the local li-
brary of his Mexican
community. The best way to
sum up this compilation of
memories is to say - he did
it his way even in death.

ical averages. The 20 per-
cent tax revenue increase
between 2004 and 2006
represents the largest two-
year revenue surge since
1965-1967
So you have to ask your-
self, if all this is true and
history demonstrates that
tax cuts increase revenues
and grow the economy,
they one, did not learn
form history or two, they
have ignored history! Why?
Why do Obama and the De-
mocrats continue to insist
that we have to raise taxes?
Could it be politics? Could
it be agenda driven? Could
it be that they care more
about their interest and
not yours? If you ignore
these facts and continue to
support people that are in-
tentionally undermining
our economy, destroying
jobs and inflate our cost of
living, please stay home on

Grower's Market hosts hot dog eating contest STUDENTS


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

It's the Fourth of July
weekend and if you're
looking for a taste of Amer-
ica, how about the Wild-
wood Grower's Market?
For residents and visi-
tors, it's a way to celebrate
the American farmer and
the land of plenty, through
a bounty of fresh fruits and
vegetables, all grown
within a 100-mile radius of
the market.
And this weekend coor-
dinators are planning a lit-
tle added America to the
market as they invite com-
petitors to launch into
Nathan's for a hot dog eat-
ing contest.
Contestants will have a
chance to "win 100 bucks of
Paul's money," said


Nathan's hot dog stand
owner Paul Jochum.
While the winner has the
chance for cash, Jochum
and market manager Jerry
Townsend have created
the event as a fundraiser
for the Pilot Club of
Sumter County Jochum
and his wife, Diane, are
both Pilot members. The
organization provides as-
sistance for people with
brain disorders and
Jochum said like everyone
else right now, they've been
negatively affected by the
economy
Jochum said they're
looking to get anywhere
from two to 10 contestants,
sponsored by an individual
or a group. The entry fee is
$50 and the proceeds will
be donated to the club for
their charitable work.


"The rules are pretty
simple," said Jochum.
He said there's a time
limit of five minutes and a
total of 10 hot dogs and
buns per person and the
food has to go down and
stay down for at least 10
minutes.
"No chipmunking," he
said, explaining that that
means stuffing food into
the sides of the mouth.
As for the challenge, it's
really pretty mild in com-
parison to last year's
Nathan's challenge. The
winner ate 57 hot dogs in
10 minutes.
They're asking chal-
lengers to sign up early
The contest is at 11 a.m.
this Saturday, July 2 and
they're looking for folks to
sign up starting now.

Have a safe 4th of July celebration


The U.S. Fire Adminis-
tration (USFA) and Safe
Kids USA are encouraging
families and individuals to
prepare for a safe and
memorable Fourth of July
by practicing safe grilling
and leaving the fireworks
to the professionals.
"Independence Day is a
major highlight of the
summer and for many
people there's a lot of ex-
citement around setting
off colorful fireworks and
starting up the grill," said
Deputy U.S. Fire Adminis-
trator Glenn Gaines. Meri-
K Appy, President, Safe
Kids USA joins Deputy
Administrator Gaines in
urging all Americans to
have a fun and safe week-
end. "We are reminding
everyone of simple steps
they can take to protect
their children who are
most vulnerable to fire-re-
lated burns, injuries, and
deaths," says Appy.
Fireworks
Many children and
adults are fascinated by
fireworks, but they can be
extremely dangerous. Ac-
cording to the U.S. Con-
sumer Product Safety
Commission's (CPSC) an-
nual death and injury re-
port (PDF, 325 Kb) on
fireworks, approximately
40 percent of fireworks in-
juries occur to children
younger than 15 years of
age. In addition, CPSC re-
ceived reports of three fa-
talities related to
fireworks in 2010.
The best way to protect
your family and friends is
not to use any fireworks at
home. Attend public fire-
works displays and leave


the lighting to the profes-
sionals.
Fireworks Fire Safety
Tips
Sparklers are not toys.
They can reach 2,000 de-
grees Fahrenheit-hot
enough to melt some met-
als.
Leave pieces of fire-
works on the ground after
an event. Some may still
be ignited and can ex-
plode.
Stand several feet away
from the professionals
lighting fireworks; fire-
works have been known to
backfire or shoot off in the
wrong direction.
For more information,
please visit the USFA's
Focus on Fire Safety: Fire-
works webpage and Safe
Kids USA at
www.safekids.org.
Grilling
Every Fourth of July
Americans look forward to
picnics, camping, and
other outdoor activities.
The holiday, however, also
brings fires and injuries
due to outdoor cooking. By
taking a few fire safety


precautions, you can en-
sure that everyone enjoys
a safe Independence Day.
Grilling Fire Safety Tips
Propane and charcoal
BBQ grills must only be
used outdoors. If used in-
doors, or in any enclosed
spaces such as tents, they
pose a fire hazard and a
risk of exposing occupants
to deadly carbon monox-
ide poisoning.
Place the grill a safe dis-
tance from lawn games,
play areas, and foot traffic.
Grills should be posi-
tioned at least 10 feet away
from siding, deck railing,
and out from under eaves
and overhanging
branches.
Keep, matches, lighters,
and starter fluid out of the
reach of children in a
locked drawer or cabinet.
Keep children and pets
away from the grill area:
declare a three-foot "kid-
free zone" around the
grill.
Use long barbeque mitts
and long-handled grilling
tools to protect the chef
from heat and flames
when cooking.
Periodically remove
grease or fat buildup in
trays below the grill so it
cannot be ignited by a hot
grill.

please visit Safe Kids USA
at www.safekids.org and

Safety: Summer Fire
Safety webpage.

Wildwood takes second in Dixie Boys district


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

This year's district tour-
nament was held earlier
this month for the majors.
Wildwood earned the sec-
ond place title and the
right to compete at state.
Bushnell was eliminated
from play, but they were
also invited to play in the
state championship.
The Wildwood 13-year-
olds played four games,
winning two and losing
two.
They defeated Hernando
twice, 14-4 and then 11-0,
but lost to Spring Hill, 13-7
and 6-5.
Ingram said in their
third tournament game,
which was against Her-
nando Wildwood's Ronnie
Ingram and C.J. Blanton
combined efforts and
pitched a no-hitter. Wild-
wood won the game 11-0
against Hernando.
Ingram said the Wild-
wood team strengths are in
their pitching and hitting
and it's something they
continue to hone during
their practices and lists
player Chris Persovich as a
top hitter through the tour-
nament season.
What are they focusing
on?
"Winning," he said with a
laugh.
The team held a car
wash on Saturday to raise
money for their trip and is
currently working on other


fundraisers.
While Bushnell was
eliminated in district tour-
nament play, they got an in-
vite to participate at state,
just to get a taste of the
championship competi-
tion, according to their
coach Byron Smiddy
He said the teens are
"super excited" about the
opportunity to play and the
tournament kick-off is
slated for July 9.
Smiddy notes that only
two of the players on this
year's 13-year-olds Dixie
Boys All Stars team have
ever played at the state
level before.
Smiddy said the Bush-
nell players began to gel as
a team during the tourna-
ment and ended play with
just a couple of errors.
Some of this season's top
plays were made byJacinto
Arredondo.
"He was our ace at pitch-
ing. He's leading the team
in pitching and hitting."
In the meantime, as they
raise money for the state
experience, Smiddy notes
they'll be hard at work
practicing with a focus on
batting.
As a fundraiser, they're
currently selling raffle tick-
ets and giving buyers a
chance to win $2,000.
The tickets are $20 each
and only 200 tickets will be
sold.
To purchase tickets or
for more information, call
Smiddy at 303-7737 or Car-
rie Ray at 457-3875.


The Wildwood Dixie Boys 13-year-olds took second place in the district tournament and earned the right
to head to state. Team members are (front row, left to right) Ross Bowersox, Jesus Rivera, Charles Williams,

Wildwood Majors Coach
Ken Hurst said they had
some top plays in their
Saturday game.
Alan Greene went two
for three with two dou-
bles; Ty St. Amant went
two for three with a dou-
ble and a homerun; Noah
Miller went one for three:


Jarrod Hurst went two for
three with a double and a
single and Taylor Pridgen
went one for three with a
single.
Hurst said the team's
strength is in their hitting.
They were slated to play
Oak Griner Tuesday night.
For Bushnell it was 6-0
nothing in the first inning
of that game.


Deonte' Grant made the
first hit of the game, slam-
ming the ball over the
fence and into the parking
lot and Chandler Lake fol-
lowed suit, said Coach
Mike Eastburn.
The team had 11 hits,
six walks, giving up five
hits and six walks. His ma-
jors are working on all as-
pects of the game as they


practice and their coach
notes they an "all around
solid team."
"When you win and you
didn't play your best, you
know you've got a good
team," he said.
Of the Saturday compe-
tition, Eastburn said it
was a good game.
Bushnell took the win,
10-7.

Umpires needed locally for



variety of league action


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

With an increase in ball
leagues throughout Cen-
tral Florida, umpires are
in demand.
The Hernando Sumter
Umpires Association is
scheduling a series of clin-
ics to provide men and
women over the age of 16
with the skills to become a
baseball or softball um-
pire.
While the association
serves a three-county
area, (Sumter, Hernando
and Pasco), league expan-
sions in Sumter are creat-
ing a need for more
umpires.
"Since we picked up
Bushnell baseball this
spring, we need to get
more local umpires," said
Jerry Theilen, association


president.
"We've been sending
umpires from Hernando
County to Sumter but we
need to find some local
people," he said.
The association recently
finished up T-ball tourna-
ments in the county and
also provides umpires for
South Sumter girls' soft-
ball.
In total, the association
has about 89 umpires with
about 25 umpires used in
Sumter County.
"We're hoping to ex-
pand in the county and get
some better people in-
volved," he said.
To that end, an umpire
clinic has been scheduled
for noon on Saturday, Aug.
27, at the Kenny Dixon
Sports Complex in Bush-
nell.
During the three-hour


clinic, students will be
taught and tested on the
rules of the game. All of
the participants will take
a 100-question test based
on Major League baseball,
high school, AAU, USSSA,
Dixie baseball and soft-
ball and Little League
rules. They will receive an
MLB rulebook, positional
charts and other hand-
outs.
An umpire can make an
average of $20 per hour
working part time.
The clinic has limited
seating and pre-payment
and registration is re-
quired. To sign up, visit
the HSUA clinic web page
at www.hernando-
sumterumpire.com or for

LUNCH, LEMONADE AND LINDEN


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

An overcast sky kept tem-
peratures down without
raining on the 114th Lin-
den Cemetery Picnic where a
"from-scratch" yellow cake with
coconut icing, baked by Barbara
Farmer, of Webster, was auc-
tioned for $450. Proceeds from
the annual picnic pay for main-
taining the historic south
Sumter cemetery
The annual picnic hosted by
Linden Cemetery Association
(LCA) Saturday, June 25, served
over 940 barbecue dinners,
served gallons of homemade
lemonade and auctioned 49
cakes and pies to raise about
$5,000, according to LCA.
Long ago, the fundraiser
evolved into a popular commu-
nity reunion where former
classmates and residents scat-
tered around the country return
to swap yams and enjoy fellow-
ship with current residents of
the community.
An estimated 800 to 850 visi-
tors attended the event last year
and pre-recession crowds often
topped 1,000 people, according
to Bill Carlisle, LCA board
member, who added there may
an increase this year judging by
the gathering crowd.


LARRY CLIFTON/Sumter County Times
Volunteers make things happen in the kitchen during the Linden Cemetery Picnic; many
are busy preparing food into the wee hours of morning the day of the picnic.


As the mouth-watering scent
of barbequed beef and chicken
wafted through the air and
some of the tastiest cakes and
pies east of the Mississippi
were stacked on tables near the
auctioneer's microphone, peo-
ple shared their stories.
Norris Bryan recalled the
first time he attended the picnic
in 1947, when beer was still


served at the picnic.
"When my father became pas-
tor of Linden Church of God in
1947, the picnic was a contro-
versy at the church because al-
cohol was being served at the
event and some elders in the
church decided it wasn't right
for folks to attend," said Bryan.
Some from the church were
already attending the picnic so


Bryan's father, Rev Carl W
Bryan, put it to a vote and the
congregation voted 80 to 20 per-
cent in favor - officially ending
the controversy
"My father parked a flat-bed
truck right over there in that
area," said Bryan, pointing to
an eastern edge of cemetery
property. "We put some speak-
ers on the bed of the truck, my


father led a prayer, and the
quartette I sang with performed
for the picnic audience," Bryan
said, adding he was about 14,
and that was his first Linden
Cemetery Picnic experience.
Alcohol is no longer served at
the event.
Now a retired pastor and cur-
rent LCA board member, Bryan
told how there used to be rail-
road tracks between Highway
50, which rims the property, and
the cemetery
"Each year the engineer
would make an unofficial stop

sengers could walk over and
purchase a picnic lunch," he
said.
While the picnic is a reunion
where people rekindle commu-
nity ties and friendships, it is
also a respectful venue for bid-
ding farewell to those in the
community who have passed
on.
Ella Catherine Hayes, of Web-
ster, who baked auction cakes
and actively supported the pic-
nic for about 60 years, passed
away a week before this year's
picnic. Hayes' granddaughters,
Kristan Chancey, Kelly Brun,
Jennifer Chancey and Rene
Combs, baked two cakes using
her recipe to honor their grand-
mother's legacy.


LARRY CLIFTON/Sumter County Times
Tracey Chancey, Kristan Chancey and Al Chancey brought cakes baked in honor of long-
time cake contributor Ella Catherine Hayes who passed away the week before this year's
Linden Cemetery Picnic. The commemorative cakes were baked by Hayes' granddaugh-
ters, Rene Combs, Kelly Bryan, Jennifer Chancey and Kristan.


This made-from-scratch yellow cake with coconut frosting
baked by Barbara Farmer, of Webster, attracted a $450 bid
during the cake auction.

were in the class of 1953, which graduated 12 girls and one

Rural Development, CHC re-
ceived a $1.5 million Rural
Development Community

The new health center has
replaced the former South
Lake Family Health Center,
and is still located at 1296
West Broad Street, Grove-
land, FL 34736. Patient ac-
cess to services was not
compromised during the
year long construction, as the
existing South Lake Family

stay operational during the
construction phase. The new
building was completed and
opened on April 12, 2011 for
patients and the old building
was demolished and a new
larger parking lot has been
built to handle the increased
patient volume.
CHC was able to expand
the health center from a
9,450 square foot building
into a 13,600 square foot new
facility - expanding existing
Family Practice care and
Adult Dental care, and pro-
viding new Pediatric and Pe-
diatric Dental care services.
CHC has been providing
medical, dental and pharma-
ceutical services to the South
Lake community since 1978.
In the past year, the South
Lake Center provided med-
ical services to 2,500 pa-
tients, with 8,505 visits and


dental services to 1,087 pa-
tients, with 3,590 visits, and
20,213 prescriptions were
filled within the pharmacy
The ribbon cutting cere-
mony gave members of the
Groveland community an op-
portunity to tour the center
and meet the staff serving
the site. Special guests and
speakers included Mayor

Some Things Fishy



at Tracy's Point Fishing Lodge


Report by Donna and Steve Lind

Fishing Report, news and tournament results for

week ending June 26

Fishing Report
Blue Gill fishing has
been fantastic - they are
not on the bed, from what
I can tell, however that
hasn't slowed em down -
fish the Southeast side of
the lake - for bait use
ether crickets or live
worms. Catfish are also
doing well approximately
mid-lake on the East side.
Live worms or hot dogs
will work just fine.
As for bass, fish mid
lake and use watermelon
or Junebug worms - also
it's that time of year to do
a little bit of rapalaing -
Rapallo's are a great bait
and an outstanding bait
for Lake Panasoffkee - if
mid lake isn't working for
you, try pitching your bait
under docks, etc. If all else
fails, we've got domestic
shiners. Let me tell you -
I've got photos of two bass
weighing in North of 11
pounds caught during the
summer - it's worth a shot!
Brody Long was fishing
out here on the dock and
caught some nice size
Bluegill on live red
worms.
Lemar Miller was out
for one of his weekly trips
to the lake and caught
these nice Bass that
weighed from 3 lbs to 6
lbs, he was fishing over by
Colemans landing with a
watermelon seed worm.
Then we have One Shot
of Willy (Bill Boyette) that
is our hunter that kills
Water Moccasin's for us
and this time he got a baby
one. Boyette took another
moccasin for us a few
weeks ago.
Please don't get the
wrong impression - it is
safe to "hang out" at
Tracy's Point. One of the
things that has always at-
tracted me to Lake Pana-
soffkee, and Sumter
County for that matter is
that "it ain't for sissy's" -
think about it. How many
folks do you see out water
skiing, jet skiing, or raft-
ing? Not many. It's not that
scary, it's just common
sense and reflect the
beauty of the lake.
In Sumter County (Lake
Panasoffkee in particular)
you truly are experiencing
Florida today, like your
parents did 50 years ago.
Here you are seeing "un-
filtered" nature at work
including snakes, gators,
otters, eels, etc. in their
natural habitat.


Within an hour's drive
from here you can see the
same critters in a safer en-
vironment at places such
as Gatorland in Kissim-
mee.
The reality is that we
take significant precau-
tions here at Tracy's Point
to keep the presence of
snakes and gators down.
We keep buckets at our
fish cleaning stations that
our staff use to discard
waste.
Snake-bitten is a term
that may well have de-
scribed Joseph and Dar-
lene Cutrone even before
a venomous reptile buried
its fangs in the woman's
left arm two days ago.
At 39, the mother of two
teenage boys has survived
10 cancer surgeries, in-
cluding a double mastec-
tomy.
Related
Florida's venomous
snakes:
Of the 45 species of
snakes in the state, only
six are venomous.
Joseph Cutrone has
been using a wheelchair
since he fell off a roof in
April and injured his
back And he nearly lost
his two young sons in 2008.
Darlene Cutrone said
on Sunday from her bed in
Memorial Hospital that
she has never experi-
enced the physical pain
she is enduring after a
snake - believed to be a
water moccasin - bit her.
It happened Friday after-
noon as she reached down
to move a lawn chair in
the backyard of the cou-
ple's Pembroke Pines
home.
"Within 10 minutes it
felt like my hand was on
fire," said Cutrone. "Then
I had blurred vision, nau-
sea and started losing con-
sciousness."
She reached her hus-
band on a cell phone as he
was driving home from
work, and he dialed 911.
Within minutes, Pem-
broke Pines Fire-Rescue
was at the scene. Not far
behind came Miami-Dade
Fire-Rescue's Antivenom
Unit.
Joseph Cutrone, 43, said
the quick response from
paramedics saved his
wife's life.
The good news for Dar-
lene Cutrone is that she is
in stable condition, and
could be discharged from
the hospital on Monday.
But she has been told
there is more pain ahead
as the anti-venin works its
way through her system.
"Doctors told me the
pain is going to be worse
than when I came in," said


Cutrone, a former private
investigator.
Cutrone said she saw
only the tail of the snake
as it slithered away. Water
moccasins, also called cot-
tonmouths, are common
in western Broward and
Palm Beach counties.
The snake bite is just
the latest calamity to
strike the couple.
Good luck and good
fishing!


Brody Long was fishing
out here on the dock
and caught some nice
size Bluegill on live red
worms.


Lemar Miller was out for one of his weekly trips to the lake and caught these nice Bass that weighed from
3 Ibs to 6 Ibs, he was fishing over by Colemans landing with a watermelon seed worm.

Annual statewide small farms conference July 15-17


Florida's only statewide
small farms conference returns
for a third year July 15 through
17 in Kissimmee, and this
year's slate is even more in-
depth than in the conference's
first two years.
For this year's Florida Small
Farms and Alternative Enter-
prises conference, organizers
have added two six-hour work-
shops and two farm tours as
pre-conference activities.
In one of the workshops, par-
ticipants will learn how to cre-
ate a food safety plan to ensure
that their farm meets safety
standards now being required
even by smaller buyers. The
second workshop will teach in-
experienced growers the basic
scientific principles behind
food production. One tour will
be oriented toward livestock
producers and one toward
crops.
About 800 farmers and indus-
try professionals are expected
to attend. The conference fea-
tures more than 100 speakers,
about 30 educational sessions
and more than 90 dealer ex-


hibits, along with awards, live- and network, including a large
stock displays and networking gathering Saturday evening.

Another change to this year's courage farmer-to-farmer
conference, he said, is that discussion on key issues and
there will be more opportuni- promote opportunities avail-
ties for attendees to socialize able to small farm operators.


It'll be a little less of a "lec-
ture style," Hochmuth said.
The conference, at Osceola
Heritage Park in Kissimmee, is
hosted by the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences and
Florida A&M University's Col-
lege of Engineering Sciences,


Technology and Agriculture.
Topics for the conference are
wide-ranging, and include ses-
sions on government regula-
tions, marketing, pest control,
livestock production, irrigation,
Community-Supported Agricul-
ture, agriculture equipment
and the latest in growing and
protecting crops.
Florida's small farms com-
munity includes about 44,000
families. According to U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture stan-
dards, any farm with less than
$250,000 in gross annual sales is
small; more than 90 percent of
Florida's farms meet that de-
scription.
Those interested in attending
the conference may go to the
Small Farms and Alternative
Enterprises site, at http://small-
farms. ifas.ufl.edu. Besides reg-
istration information, the site
includes a wealth of informa-
tion for anyone considering
starting a farm.
Space for some of the pre-
conference events is limited, so
organizers encourage those in-
terested to register soon.

We go together like
peanut butter and
Jelly, like milk and
cookies, like baseball and
hotdogs. We go together be-
cause we have been to-
gether our whole lives.
Nine years to be exact!
And we plan on staying to-
gether forever. So we need
to find a family that will
adopt both of us together.
Rex and Nadia have
lived with a family for nine
years, but due to unfortu-
nate circumstances, they
are now homeless. They
are now residing with the
Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County until they
can once again find a home
together. Rex and Nadia
are housetrained, and very
friendly and affectionate.
They get along well with
other animals, and are
wonderful companions.
When illness, job loss, or
disaster suddenly occurs,
people as well as family
pets suffer. Many families


Rex and Nadia need a home


are now having to make
difficult decisions to give
up their beloved pets, be-
cause they can no longer
care for them.
Many humane organiza-
tions are stepping up to the
plate, and taking the now
homeless animals in, and
re-homing them.
How sad to think that
someone had to give up
their pet. How sad for the
animal to unexpectedly
lose the love and security
they have known their
whole life, and to be sud-
denly put into a whole new
environment. It is amazing
how resilient most animals
are. With love and kind-
ness they receive from hu-
mane volunteers, they are
able to rebound and move
on. Others take a longer
time to adjust, and our
local Humane
Society/SPCA gives them
the time and attention they
need, until they too regain
their confidence and are
able to be adopted to a new
family
The Humane
Society/SPCA provides a


safe haven for homeless
animals, allowing them all
the time they need to find
a home. Once in the Hu-
mane Society/SPCA's care,
their medical needs are
taken care of.
Many people confuse the
Humane Society/SPCA
with Animal Control or the
Cares Center. Each is their
own individual entity The
Humane Society/SPCA of
Sumter County is an all
volunteer group of dedi-
cated animal lovers, and
they receive no money
from any local government
agencies. The Humane So-
ciety/SPCA of Sumter
County is a non-profit or-
ganization that runs on do-
nations only, and they are
an essential asset to the
community. If you love ani-
mals and want to help, do-
nations can be mailed to:
PO. Box 67, Lake Panasoff-
kee, FL 33538.
The Humane
Society/SPCA is here to
help animals like Rex and
Nadia who, by no fault of
their own, have become
homeless. They want to be


there to help other animals same sad situation. With can continue their impor-

have in three decades and plan to
steadily increase over the next
decade. With life's essentials such
as food and fuel at record high
prices, less money is being spent
in other areas of the economy.
This is critical for local
businesses. The latest couponing
craze can not only help families
weather the storm at the grocery
counter to potentially put money
back in to the local economy, it
can also be a way for business


owners to expand their customer
base and increase their revenue.

small business in the
community. I want to thank you

BOARD MEMBER OF THE MONTH JUNE 2011


The timing was right states
Danny Smith, owner of Smith
and Smith Realty, when he was
asked to join the Chamber Board
of Directors. He had just finished
a prior position with the Realtors
Land Institute and the
opportunity presented itself. I
have found that the more you put
into an organization the more you
get out of it. He believes that it
has made him a better person,
and is honored and humble that
he was invited to join and be a
part of the chamber's leadership.
Danny feels that communicating
the chamber's values and
benefits to non-members, along
with encouraging members to
become more active, is one of the
organization's greatest
challenges.
The Chamber is the bus and
membership is the ticket. You
wouldn't buy a bus ticket and
then walk into town, states


Danny. You have to
actually get on the bus
if you want to ride.
Danny believes that
the chamber has
accomplished a lot --
from the Leadership
Sumter program to k
connecting businesses
from all ends of the
county -- but
promoting and
referring existing
businesses is the Dann
chambers most
important role. Then
you have Andy Cripps, our new
director that is taking us from a
really good chamber to a Great
Chamber, adds Danny. Just come
to our next luncheon exchange,
where we have had over 100
attending, and see for yourself!
Danny's goal for the chamber


would be to fill the
seats on the bus; the
more businesses we
1Si.o- -, board, the
p ..o... ..i;fortunity we
I,,, educate,
i .ad promote
S\\ m., ..sked what
. uo..i like to see
. additional
I ., to our
. ,-,,,-1.. Danny
i- . ..- I' . I .', ice cream
ny Smith on Fridays!
Seriously, I am a big
supporter of networking
opportunities that promote
Sumter business. I know we
already are doing this; however,
the more we have an opportunity
to meet our neighboring
businessman, the better our
chances that we might find a
way to do business together.

tant message someone might be trying
to send to you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) That project you've been
working on is almost ready for presen-
tation. But you still need some infor-

AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febru-
ary 18) Don't let those negative atti-
