Fresh out of basic training in the U.S. Air Force, Virginia Mary Ries, 19, was headed toward a career in the military. The blonde-haired, green-eyed petite Tampa resident kept a journal. She wrote about her experiences, even sharing what she ate from day to day and how much a meal cost. But the one thing her journal never revealed was enough information to find her killer. Ries was murdered in 1978. Her skeletal remains were not found until a year later along Interstate 75, just north of the Webster exit in Sumter County. A Department of Transportation worker found the decomposed body on May 2, 1979, in a wooded median strip along the busy highway. She was identified by dental records. Ries had been struck several times in the face, her jaw had been broken. She was stabbed at least twice in the chest, according to sheriffs office records. The second stab wound B OB R EICHMAN Editor Military womans body found along interstate Virginia Mary Ries Snake trial continues Television camera crews and the vehicles of the curious filled the park lots at the Sumter County Courthouse in Bushnell early this week as trial proceeding started for an Oxford couple accused of being responsible for the Burmese python strangulation death of 2-year-old Shaiunna Hare. It is believed to be the first death case of its kind in the state and it created ripples throughout the country when news of the toddlers death spread. Jaren Ashley Hare, 21, and her boyfriend Charles Jason Darnell, 34, are facing third-degree murder, manslaughter and child neglect charges in the death of Hares daughter. If convicted of all charges, they could each receive 35 years in prison. The couple rejected a plea offer on Monday that would have required them to plead guilty to manslaughter and each would receive no more than 10 years in prison. A six-member jury, with one alternate, was selected early Monday afternoon in the case before Circuit Judge William Hallman. The couple is facing trial together because of the identical charges. Opening statements began on Tuesday morning. Assistant State Attorney Pete Magrino said Hare and Darnell were responsible for the childs death and called the snake an instrument of death. The couple is accused of preventing a more than 8foot albino snake, named Gypsy, from escaping from the glass aquarium it was kept in on July 1, 2009, and making its way into the childs room and attacking her in her crib. The snake was wrapped around the child and strangled her to death. Bite marks from the snake were found on the girls forehead although pythons are not venomous. Darnell told investigators he stabbed the snake several times to remove it from the toddler. Darnell also told investigators that the snake was This is the sixth story in a series of stories featuring 12 unsolved murders contained in the Sumter County Sheriffs Office Cold Case File. During the upcoming weeks, the Sumter County Times will publish information about each of the murders.

Reliving World War II may be long over, but its not forgotten. Next month, the Dade Battlefield Society is sponsoring its annual World War II Commemorative Day on Saturday, Aug. 6, at Dade Battlefield Historic State Park, 7200 County Road 603, in Bushnell. The day provides an opportunity to participate in a real life display of history as crowds roam the park and experience life during the war. The event will feature mechanized vehicles, working communication stations, period vendors, food and music.

B OB R EICHMAN Editor DOING DAY CAMP Filth, drugs lead to arrest Alta Risen The Lake Panasoffkee home had dirty and unwashed clothing piled fourfeet high in the kitchen. Roaches and ants had infested the kitchen sink and kitchen countertops. The condition of the home and the presence of marijuana led investigators to arrest Alta B. Risen, 32, for child abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia. Risen was arrested Saturday, July 9, when investigators from the state Department of Children and Families went to the home based on allegations of child neglect, according to a sheriffs office report. When they arrived, Risen showed signs indicative of being under the influence of a narcotic and determined that the residence was unfit for occupancy, according to the report.

He then put it in a mesh bag and returned it to the aquarium. He found the snake wrapped around the girl the when he awoke, Investigators said the snake was malnourished at the time of the attack and had not been fed for about a month. The snake had also reportedly escaped numerous times from its enclosure before the incident. Hares death caused a strong reaction by lawmakers. Because of the horrific circumstances of the girls death, then Gov. Charlie Crist enacted a law making it illegal to import several varieties of snakes into the state including Burmese pythons. Following the childs death, manhunts were launched in the Everglades to capture pythons that may have escaped from captivity. The trial is expected to last through the week. TRIAL continued from Page 1 Television camera crews and vehicles filled the parking lots near the Sumter County Courthouse early this week as the trial started.

Ries was last seen leaving her mothers home in Punta Gorda with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend reportedly dropped her off at Interstate 75 and Bush Blvd. in Tampa. From there, Ries was to hitchhike her way back to Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi following a weekend visit in Tampa. Hitchhiking was not uncommon to Ries. Sheriffs Major Gary Brannen refers to Ries as a habitual hitchhiker, which put her in a high risk category. Its the only behavior that investigators believe put Ries in potentially dangerous situations. She would hitchhike everywhere, said Brannen. She hitchhiked from the base down to be with her family. She was such a good hitchhiker that she knew how much time she needed to get back. Ever since the body was found, investigators have continued to work the case. They have even gone back to the murder site by I-75 moving dirt around in hopes of finding additional clues to her murder. Throughout the years, they have repeatedly interviewed suspects. To this day, investigators remain hopeful that they will solve the case and make an arrest in her murder. This is one of those cases that haunts you because we have a really good idea who committed this murder, Brannen said. We also believe that there may be someone who the murderer confided in and hasnt come forward yet. Brannen said he even holds out hope that the murderer will finally confess to the crime and close the case forever. Anyone with any information can contact Brannen at the Sumter County Sheriffs Office, 793-0222.

WAR continued from Page 1 An Oxford motorist was sentenced last week to life imprisonment for killing four motorcyclists last year while attempting to pass a slower-moving vehicle. Paul Sermons, 46, was given four concurrent life sentences last Wednesday when he appeared for sentencing before Circuit Court Judge William Hallman III. In June, a jury convicted Sermons of DUI manslaughter. The same jury found Sermons innocent on four counts of vehicular homicide. Sermons was traveling west on County Road 476 on March 13, 2010, in a 1991 GMC pickup when he attempted to pass a 2003 truck being driven by Melissa Pike, then 27, of Floral City. Sermons vehicle struck two oncoming motorcycles carrying four motorcyclists, killing everyone on the bikes. All four riders were ejected from the bikes and one, a female passenger, crashed into the windshield of the truck that Sermons attempted to pass. Three of the bikers died at the scene and the fourth, a woman, was flown to a local hospital where she died of her injuries a short time later. Killed in the accident on a 2003 Harley-Davidson were its operator, John Holmes, 55, of Beverly Hills, and his passenger, Patricia Biehayn, 52, of Hernando County. Aboard the other bike, a 2005 Harley-Davidson, was the driver, William Barker, 54, of Stuart, and his passenger, Patricia Poole, 55, of Mount Dora. Pike and her passenger Michael Rogers received minor injuries in the accident, according to an FHP accident report. Members of several motorcycle clubs, notably ABATE, an activist club that campaigns for legislation on behalf of motorcyclists had frequently attended Sermons court hearings and his trial. Following the sentencing, state prosecutor William Catto said he believes the sentence was justified. I feel it was a fair sentence under the circumstances, he said. Its a tragedy but its fair. DUI motorist receives life sentence Paul Sermons B OB R EICHMAN Editor After being reported several times for driving recklessly and then ramming into a sheriffs patrol car, a Bushnell man was arrested last Thursday evening. Cody M. Johnston, 19, was charged July 9 with fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer, driving with a suspended drivers license, driving under the influence and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, according to a sheriffs office report. Problems started for Johnston about 7 p.m. when a deputy saw a gray Chevrolet truck being operated in a careless manner on County Road 631A after the office was notified of an intoxicated driver in the area of County Road 476B, according to the report. When a deputy tried to stop the vehicle using flashing lights and siren, the driver accelerated abruptly and sped away from the patrol car. A short time later, deputies discovered the truck behind the Circle K in Nobleton after receiving more reports of a reckless driver in the area. As deputies approached the truck, Johnston attempted to flee again and intentionally rammed one of the patrol vehicles, causing minor damage, the report states. Deputies drew their service pistols and ordered Johnston to get out of the truck. After making several commands, he finally got out without incident. Johnston had a strong odor of what appeared to be an alcoholic beverage, the report states. He was taken to the Sumter County Detention Center, and tested with a .146 blood alcohol level. Bond was set at $11,500. Under Florida law, DUI is proved by impairment of normal faculties or unlawful blood alcohol or breath alcohol level of .08 or above. No one was injured in the incident. 10 Most Wanted This information is provided by the Sumter County Sheriffs Office, 793-2621.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 14, 2011 Bushnell tries to stimulate growth T he city of Bushnell is hoping that a new policy will help kick-start lagging development in the city and offer a substantial incentive for new growth. It also can provide substantial savings for those who pay city taxes. In August, the City Council is likely to approve an ordinance placing a moratorium on the fees the city charges for residences, businesses and industries to tie into the citys water and sewer system. The savings can amount to anywhere from about $1,000 to more than $20,000. City officials are hoping that by eliminating the fees, until the end of Decemeber 2012, new development will be more attracted to move inside the city limits. Its the citys way of combating the unstable economic conditions it and the community now faces. The ordinance may also provide an incentive to land parcels currently outside the city limits that are beside city boundaries. Annexing into the city limits would make the properties eligible for the savings. Of course, the bigger the development, the more savings would be realized. City service connection fees have always been an obstacle for developers. By eliminating those fees, developers could find Bushnell a more attractive location for new businesses and industries. The proposed ordinance is expected to be adopted when the City Council meeting in August. That meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 1, at Bushnell City Hall. If the ordinance is approved, it would become effective the following day.

To do this the deficit must be cut by raising taxes on the blessed and powerful who earn more than $250,000 annually and not on the backs of the poor, disabled and seniors, particularly those persons who receive Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. President Obama, in my opinion, is badly mistaken if he believes the American people will accept any cuts to social security or the other vital programs that help our children, disabled and our senior citizens. If the president agrees to cut the entitlement programs he will be a one term president and the Democrat Party will suffer immensely. The American people, I believe, want to live in a democracy that is ruled by our constitutional type government and not an oligarchy form of government in which a few persons hold the ruling power. If the Republicans have their way the very elite and rich and their corrupt corporations using their lobbyists and wealth will control our government and the American people. We The People should band together and defeat these greedy, selfish and corrupt individuals and corporations, especially those who use our newspapers, TV, and other communication outlets who broadcast and print untruths, lies and distortions to the detriment of the American people. It seems the corporations and some businesses and the superrich have declared war upon the majority of the American people, and are very busy at controlling our work place, our communities, and indeed the entire life of the American society. In my opinion, in a democracy the majority rules, not big money or power or fame. Americans should stand up against these hypocritical do-gooders and robber barons and put this country back in the hands of those who will form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity as set forth in the United States Constitution. William A. Perry Blocton, Alabama Animals in crisis across our nation need help! The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Animal Rescue Teams have been crisscrossing the country, coming to the aid of animals in need from North Carolina to California and from North Dakota to Alabama. Every day brings new challenges for these rescuers, whether its removing more than 150 dogs from an overcrowded California property in scorching 113-degree heat this last week, navigating floodwaters in Mississippi to save stranded cats from rooftops a couple of months ago, or helping to shelter and care for hundreds of pets rescued from puppy mills, hoarding, and disasters week after week. And right now, the HSUS needs our help to keep rescuing and caring for animals in need. Please make an emergency donation today at www.humanesociety.org/site/donation. If you love animals, read The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them, by Wayne Parcelle, President and CEO of HSUS. This book changed my life! I want to help how about you? Virginia R. Miller Bushnell Everybody doesnt love Raymond M y cable company offers over a hundred channels, so why is finding a sitcom that doesnt star a pseudo-intellectual hyper-silly metrosexual male so difficult? Its as though television executives are attempting to make up for portraying women as varied versions of Lucy Ricardo for the first 40 years by stereotyping men as similar dolts for the next 40. I mean it was hard enough to believe Neil Patrick as Doogie Howser, M.D., an 18-year-old smarty-pants doctor now we are asked to believe him as Ted Mosby, in 2030, telling his children how he met their mother, as narrated by Bob Saget. And if the plot isnt weak enough, front-page tabloid photos of Patrick and his fianc, David Burtka, hit supermarket check-out counters weeks ago. While I wish the happy couple all the best, their real-life bliss doesnt move the plot of how I met your mother forward. Then there is the predictable comedy How to Be a Gentleman. That sitcoms main character, Andrew Carlson, who makes Mr. Rogers of PBS seem socially abrasive, runs into Bert Lansing, an arrogant bully from his high school days who prefers punches to handshakes. Lansing agrees to teach utterly polite Carlson to be manlier. Watching Carlson who plays a magazine etiquette columnist man up is like watching Hulk Hogan perform Black Swan wearing motorcycle leathers and boots in Dancing with the Stars; its only funny once. Some of the new shows have a cult-like following, at least if a cult can be defined as a small but dedicated group suffering from laugh dyslexia. Wilfred Pelican is a sitcom about Ryan, a rather meek young man, and his neighbors dog, Wilfred. Wilfred is actually actor Jason Gann in a dog suit, whom everyone else sees as a regular dog. Unless Wilfred morphs into Cujo, the mad St. Bernard from Stephen Kings novel that terrorizes a family, and clamps down on Ryans backside, Im pretty sure this ones headed to the sitcom doghouse. Metrosexual television sitcoms became popular in the s and s with shows like Roseanne and Friends, but the classic metrosexual male is perhaps best personified by Ray Romano of Everybody Loves Raymond. Romano plays a hapless golf-crazed, self-absorbed husband and father of three whose domestic attentions are divided equally between absorbing his mothers excessive adulation and begging his wife Debra, who is usually exhausted from cooking, cleaning and raising their children, to go up stairs with him. The slap after insult to wife Debra comes each episode when Raymond poohpoohs her culinary efforts in favor of his mothers cooking. But everybody doesnt love Raymond in fact, many of us despise Raymond despise him, I say. His character is only equaled in emasculation by the pathetic antics of his giant, socially-impaired brother, Robert, whose script consists of refried servings of animated sibling rivalry punctuated by lingering dim-witted gazes. I apologize to any Romano fans I may have offended but it needed saying on behalf of everybody who doesnt love Raymond.

OPINIONS INVITED A step beyond Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor Patrol arrests 90 motorists for impaired driving Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol, today announced the preliminary results from the Patrols Independence Day holiday enforcement effort. During the four-day heightened enforcement period, FHP increased the number of troopers patrolling Floridas roadways. Auxiliary troopers augmented FHPs force. Troopers issued nearly 8,600 traffic citations and made 90 arrests for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs. They cited more than 3,200 drivers for speeding and nearly 1,100 for failure to buckle up. Troopers also investigated more than 900 crashes during the holiday period, including 12 crashes that resulted in 13 fatalities. Additionally, troopers assigned to commercial vehicle enforcement conducted 232 safety inspections on trucks. Our troopers worked hard to help our residents and visitors have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend, said Brierton. Motorists who operate their vehicles in an unsafe fashion are a danger that puts innocent lives at risk. The men and women of the Florida Highway Patrol did their part to identify the unsafe drivers and take the steps necessary to decrease that risk. The members of the Florida Highway Patrol would like to remind everyone that it is the law to move over when approaching any authorized emergency vehicle or wrecker displaying rotating or flashing lights stopped on the side of a roadway. Also, remember that *FHP (*347) dialed from your cell phone contacts FHP should you need to report an aggressive driver or require roadside assistance.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 14, 2011, P AGE 5 Bushnell residents, businesses and industries have an opportunity to save a substantial amount of money if they pay city property taxes and want to tie into the citys water and sewer lines. The City Council plans to adopt an ordinance placing a moratorium on the collection of capacity reservation charges, the fees associated with connecting to the systems. In other words, if homes and businesses meet certain criteria, connecting to the city water and sewer system would be free. The savings is substantial, according to City Manager Vince Ruano. Depending on the type and size of a structure, the savings can amount to anything from more than $1,000 to about $20,000. The savings are incredible if you want to connect and service is available, Ruano said. The final reading on the ordinance is scheduled for the Monday, Aug. 1, council meeting at Bushnell City Hall. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. If approved, the ordinance would become effective the following day. But the savings wont last indefinitely, the ordinance provides for free connections until Dec. 31, 2012 when the moratorium will be lifted. The City Council agreed to temporarily abolish the fees because a deep economic recession has gripped the United States and City of Bushnell for over three years, according to the proposed ordinance. The city has determined that in order to promote economic development and growth within the city, and serve the best interest of the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the city of Bushnell, Florida, it is appropriate, proper, and necessary to establish a moratorium on the collection of capacity reservation charges for certain types of existing properties and new developments. Council members agree that the moratorium will promote and stimulate development and act as an incentive to owners of existing properties within the city limits to connect to the citys water and sewer utilities. The moratorium applies to any residential, commercial, or industrial zoned property located within the boundaries of the city that meet the following criteria: (a) The property was developed prior to the effective date of this ordinance or the property is a new development that has been issued all necessary building permits prior to the expiration of the moratorium. (b) The property use of the water utility does not exceed five equivalent single-family residential units (E.R.U.). Were really trying to encourage development by letting people benefit by this action, Ruano said. The moratorium would also apply to properties considering annexing into the city limits. Moratorium could save Bushnell customers money B OB R EICHMAN Editor Peebles gave a lifetime of service to Wildwood Jess Willard Peebles was a patriot a real statesman, according to his former employee Gynelle Rast, who spent more than a half of a century working for Peebles. At 96 and after a lifetime of serving Wildwood and Sumter County, Peebles died on Friday, June 17. In the lifetime he spent here, the city, the county, the whole state benefited, she said, also pointing out that he spent a lot of his own money doing things for the community. Peebles moved to Sumter County in 1945 from Ocala to open a second furniture store for his family. The business was successful and so was the community. The Seaboard Coastline Railroad, Interstate 75, the Florida Turnpike, U.S. 301 and S.R. 44 were all either in Wildwood or near it and the community became known as the Transportation Hub of Florida. With an economy on the move, the state decided to fourlane U.S. 301. While the move would allow an increase in traffic, it would also displace several of the businesses along the main street through town. The railroad was booming then and things were going fairly well for Wildwood, but the needed widening of Main Street left several businesses with no place to go. I talked with some people and we decided to build a shopping center so those businesses and jobs would have a place to stay here in Sumter County, Peebles said in an earlier interview. They opened the Wildwood Shopping Center which continues to house local business. When the center was first built, the local economy was doing well the railroad employed more than 500 full-time workers. But in the 1970s, freight trucking affected the railroad and Wildwoods unemployment rate. Peebles created and led the Wildwood Development Committee, luring a steel company, the nursing home and built the 125-acre Willard Peebles Industrial Park. He was also instrumental in the creation of the Wildwood Improvement Committee and making Traditions a reality the shop specialized in Italian Capidamonte porcelain flowers. The business expanded into furniture and is currently an antique business on S.R. 44. He was a World War II United States Army veteran and then a businessman. He began his political service with the Wildwood City Commission, then went to the School Board and to the County Commission. From there, he was appointed to the road board, Rast said. He was a man who was interested in serving, not in keeping his political position, a wonderful employer and a man of great character, according to Rast. Rast began working for Peebles when the State Road Board determined where the roads were placed. Peebles served on the board as a representative for 12 Central Florida counties, including Sumter, Citrus, Levy, Marion, Orange and Brevard. During the years he served on the board, The moon program was started, Rast said. Roads were needed as the program was put into place and Peebles worked on it. Today there is a bridge in Indian River named after him. The balance of power leveled out as the population changed and Peebles and others gave the power over to the legislature about five years later. Rast continued to work for Peebles, then at his furniture store. As you get older, the younger generation has no idea who did all these things, she said of time passing. I really miss him, I think about him a lot. Even after he became ill, Rast visited him at home twice a week. We were very good friends. Peebles spent much of his time with longtime friend and former Speaker of the House E.C. Rowell who rented the office next to Peebles in the Wildwood center. I never knew what was going to happen, she said of the men, who were always playing practical jokes. Marnie Miller Peebless Granddaughter He was very kindhearted and very gracious, she said, adding that his generosity was not limited to her and family. She points out that shes heard from many people how generous and kind he was. Peebles also loved his music Irish music especially. Danny Boy was among his list of favorites. Miller and her two children both have warm memories of Peebles and said he loved to sing, especially When the Saints go Marching in. He always did so much for us, Miller said, noting that they always had benefit vacations around the state and the country, thanks to his generosity. My childhood was great, but it was even better because of him. She recalls growing up listening as Peebles would share stories about his adventures with his closest friend Rowell. Ironically, Miller and Rowells granddaughter have also grown up as best friends, though their meeting did not take place through their grandparents. And Miller has another memory, of staying with him for a while. She treasures the memory that every morning he would take them breakfast and they would get to choose, Peppers or the Chow Hound. I really looked forward to that. Overall, she said, I was very proud to be his granddaughter. The Great-Grandchildren Millers son Noah, 12, referred to great-grandfather as an optimist. Noah said his Granddaddy would always encourage him in sports. Especially golf. By the time Noah began to golf, Peebles was no longer able to take on the course, but he was always ready to watch his great-grandson play and ply him with encouragement. If he missed a shot, his granddaddy would have already moved past it and say, Wait for the next shot. Along with his singing, Noah and his sister Sadie, 10, recall his cane collection and his hats. It was like he would put on a play or something. He entertained me a lot, Sadie said of time she spent with him. She cites his generosity and notes, Thats such a good legacy to leave us. Willard Peebles in his later years, after serving on political boards and as a local businessman in Wildwood. Marnie Miller (left) and Sherry Dasher are best friends today, just as their grandfathers were. Their friendship dates back nearly to the first grade, but ironically, the girls werent introduced by their grandfathers. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Best friends E.C. Rowell and Willard Peebles serving as grand marshals for a Wildwood parade. State growth management role downsized Depending on ones perspective, the state Department of Community Affairs (DCA) was an enormous bureaucratic impediment to growth and economic development, or an environmentally-sensitive agency that prevented urban sprawl and overbuilding from overwhelming municipal infrastructures. Either way, Floridas legislature recently dismantled the agency by dismissing all but 10 of its 62 planners, cutting the agencys funding by 90 percent and placing DCA within the new Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO). According to Jason McHugh, development services coordinator for Wildwood, the legislation represents a big change in the states approach to growth management. In the future, Wildwood, due to the citys proximity to The Villages, stands to benefit, in terms of navigating fewer bureaucratic requirements and delays laid by DCA planners. But while DCAs diminished role in managing local growth and urban sprawl will speed up the growth management process in the long run, the move will not greatly impact Wildwood in the short term, according to Melanie Peavy, director of city development services. Peavy said the city recently completed a four-year process that culminated in approval by DCA of the citys 2035 Comprehensive Plan, a complex blueprint for future land use and related infrastructure improvements. In the past, Sumter County and its municipalities had to submit their large-scale development plans to DCA in hopes that a development of regional impact (DRI) would be approved. The process often led to lengthy negotiations, delays and often costly changes for developers. While such large-scale comprehensive growth plans still must be submitted to the state, the downsizing of DCA means that state review agencies may only comment on state resources and facilities that may be affected, and municipalities will deal with a scaled back expedited state review process, according to Peavy. For the county, Brad Cornelius, director of county planning and development, says the changes to DCA will be positive ones for Sumter. The new growth management plan very much puts the focus to local government, Cornelius said. While DCA will continue to be involved with development issues locally, the role they really play will be more of a partnership, he said. For developers, the process of getting largescale development approved is expected to be cut in half because of DCA changes. Under the old process, large-scale changes typically took 8 to 12 months, Cornelius said. Thats probably been cut in half, taking about 4 to 6 months now. Cornelius said DCAs new role with be more to assist local governments as a resource and to provide support.

On Monday night they played West Seminole and lost one 18-6. We started out Saturday with a good win over Freeport, said Dixie Youth Mini Minor Coach Bobby Paxton. The Sumter youths took the win 16-0. It was just great hitting, great defense we just played a really good game. On Sunday, we went back and played East Lakeland and we won that game 11-2. Our hitting was off last night, and West Seminole is just a fantastic ball team, he said. The next game for the district champs was slated for 6 p.m. Tuesday night against Sebring. Paxton said the Sumter team has a solid defense, all the way around. Currently, all players in that age bracket are practicing with pitching machines. Paxton said its a requirement for all players at that age who are playing at the state level. Some of the players never practice against human pitching, so the requirement is an effort to level the playing the field, according to Paxton. Seven teams had already been eliminated in the state challenge. The deeper you get into the tournament the better quality of player you play, he said. Team members are Bradly Morrison, Blake Clark, Royce Arredondo, Austin Keefer, Ty Parish, Evan Paxton, Trevor Moffitt, Jonathon Dinova, Grady Carson, Carson Clark, Zander Eastburn, Christian Caruso, Angel Gracia.

P AGE 10SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 14, 2011 Field trips and hands-on can be a great way to teach, summer fun is in and the economy is down, so why not? Why not create some brand new day camp ventures and teach the campers all about conservation? Thats exactly what planners for the City of Bushnells Summer Day Camp did this year. As part of the day events, campers took a field trip to the public utilities, including the citys water tower, water plant and electric utility warehouse. City employees Stephen Fussell and Jay Fuller explained where the water comes from and how its transported and stored, while city staffer Susan Noell talked about water conservation. The idea for the excursion came from councilwoman Cookie Norman-Tadlock. With cost cutting, they still wanted to provide a good, quality day camp, Noell said. The field trip was something they felt the city could host with minimal expense, but it would also serve as an educational resource and something the kids could enjoy. Noell said it seemed as if the campers had a good time and after a trip inside the water tower and around the plant, watching and listening as massive pumps pulled from the water source, they were treated to a pizza lunch and some additional conservation information from Noell, including how to help their parents save on utility bills. Campers even took home goody bags, filled with conservation information and tools such as a conservation flying disc, water and electric saver pamphlet, colouring book and an energy saving kit for parents. The kit contained a low flow shower head, weather stripping, an LED nightlight, a refrigerator thermometer and other valuable resources. Field trip is exercise in conservation BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesDirector Stephen Fussell chats with campers, explaining the workings of the storage tower. He told the children how the water gets to the tower, up into the top and how much is there. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesDylan Woodard and Colby Pitts stand by some of the pipes that work the water system for the city. Shawna Sowell, Christina Wright and Austin Pinion were among the campers who got a lesson in water conservation and a tour of the citys public works facilities during their summer camp experience.BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesWhat used to take hours to do by hand is now done in just seconds by machine. The children took a look at a hole just seconds after it was dug. Hallee Conley shows of the goody bag provided by the city, to campers. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer

P AGE 12SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 14, 2011 Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 312 Anglers Bass Fishing 181 Bass caught 247 Bass Released 232 Pan Fish Caught 502Bass fishing has been awesome with Lamar Miller from the Dade City Bass Masters club taking the cake this week with five bass weighing in at 33.42 pounds. Many people ask me where are the fish biting? The real truth of it is that to find where theyre biting requires effort. Its unrealistic to expect that you can fish once a month (on any lake) and expect to have great results. Lamar fishes Lake Pan on a regular basis and his catches reflect the amount of effort he put in. Thats not to say you cant get lucky many anglers do, in particular, because Lake Pan is one of the finest lakes in Central Florida loaded with bass and pan fish. As a follow up to my report of last week concerning my desire to hold a two-day fishing classic and festival in the spring of 2012, while there are many details to be worked out, I have established tentative dates of March 12 and 13, 2012 and will involve most all of our local businesses including hotels, motels, restaurants, and of course all of the fishing lodges and most importantly the county. I felt like the Tourist Development Council was receptive to my initial presentation last Thursday, however there is much work to be done, the first is to develop a budget and an action plan for submission to the Board of County Commissioners for final approval. Let me share it plain and simple. I, as well as many other citizens of Sumter County, have mixed feelings about forward progress in our county. I remember well some 20 years ago when my wife and I first visited Lake Panasoffkee. Im not sure how we picked Lake Panasoffkee for a fishing trip, but we did. We immediately fell in love with the place starting with dinner at Catfish Johnnys where I purchased for my wife Donna her first alligator turtle foot necklace which she still has to this date 20 years and many fond memories later. Im sort of torn, meaning coming to Lake Pan from Tampa truly was an instant relief from the rat race of the city, consequently I am torn about the notion of moving more business to the county, but I reckon theres no fighting progress. Having owned Tracys Point for almost eight years now, weve gotten to know many of the local business owners and one thing is for sure folks are struggling. Stay tuned if this initiative turns out the way I hope, it will be the beginning of enhanced business for Sumter County for years to come and a lot of fun for its citizens along the way including pig roasts, chili cook offs, arts and crafts sales, etc. Ken Sullenburger and Rubin Perze were fishing about 50 yards off of the east side of the lake approximately 50 yards north of the cat tail line when they caught these nice fish. Ken (Big Worm) Sullenberger caught most of the fish with a 10 inch Watermelon seed worm. These nice gentlemen have been great customers of Tracys Point for years and most always catch fish. According to Rubin it gives them an opportunity to get away from the big city (Tampa) and relax for the weekend. Dennis Liccio was staying here at the lodge with his mother and he caught some nice size Bass. Dennis claims that Mama put him on the fish. Lamar Miller was here on one of his weekly fishing trips and caught 5 nice Bass, as you can see. If you squint your eyes tight enough you can actually see the Bluegill that Johnny Pearson caught fishing off of the dock here at Tracys Point. He was fishing with hot dogs.

The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce is launching a series of new public events designed to promote county businesses and industry. They include a food tasting event that will raise funds for scholarships, and a festival celebrating the countys cattle beef industry. The chamber plans to promote the countys unique dining and shopping attractions with a new event called A Taste of Simply Sumter on Thursday, Oct. 6, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Continental Country Club in Wildwood. Cripps said the event is an extension of the chambers Simply Sumter promotion, which showcases what makes dining and shopping special in Sumter County. Distinctive local restaurants will serve samples of their signature dishes. Guests will enjoy live entertainment and browse displays from local boutiques and specialty shops. There will also be an auction of valuable prizes. Tickets are $25 per person. A portion of proceeds will fund new scholarships for graduating seniors at Wildwood High School, South Sumter High School, and The Villages Charter High School. The Sumter County Chambers other new event is a celebration of the countys important cattle beef industry. Beef and Boogie, scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4 and 5, at the Sumter County Farmers Market in Webster, will feature live bands, beef cook-offs (including a competition for Sumters Best Burger), childrens activities, educational displays, a beauty pageant, and craft, food and merchandise vendors. Were very excited about Beef and Boogie, because it will bring lots of people into the county to enjoy great food, great live entertainment, and fun activities. So it will have a strong economic impact, plus it will make those people more aware of Sumter Countys remarkable role in supplying high-quality beef to dinner tables all across our country, Cripps said. Even here in our own county, many people dont realize that Sumter County beef reaches every part of our country, or that the leather seats in their cars likely came from the hide of a cow raised right here. Cripps said the new event provide high-profile opportunities for business sponsors to increase their visibility and show their community support. When sponsors help us shine a spotlight on our countys distinctive dining and shopping, raise funds for education, and celebrate our biggest industry, its good for their bottom line, good for our chamber, and good for the local families that rely on a strong business environment, Cripps added. The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce is the primary business organization in Sumter County, Florida, representing more than 430 members. Its mission is to serve as the gateway to our county for visitors, residents and businesses alike, helping grow and thrive through increased visibility, advocacy, networking and information.

P AGE 14SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 14, 2011 Sumter native on the run for kids with cancer P hillip Fields, a 1965 graduate of South Sumter High School, ran marathons for the sport of it earlier in his life I ran 3:30s in the s, s and 2000s. I qualified for Boston in 1996 with a 3:25 and in 2004 with 3:35. In January of 2007, he ran a tune-up marathon to check his readiness for the Boston Marathon. I noticed an alarming change in my stamina. I couldnt complete three miles without walking. Following eight months of cardiovascular, respiratory and GI exams, the doctors had no clue. At my yearly checkup that September, my physician discovered enlarged lymph nodes and a high white blood count. I was referred to the Mitchell Cancer Institute (Mobile, Ala.). Further blood tests, a bone marrow biopsy and second opinion confirmed chronic lymphocytic leukemia, he said. When I explained the importance of running to my oncologists and asked about running marathons, I was told that taking the trash out would be fatiguing much less running a marathon. And besides, I would likely be starting chemotherapy within the next 6 months. After a year of two-day training sessions, he learned to run with fatigue and took a marathon in Pensacola. The race start was my scariest moment ever. In training runs, I was hitting the wall at six miles and would force myself to do 10 more. However, 20 more miles was an unknown. The marathon was two loops. Passing the half marathon finish and continuing the second loop totally out of gas was mental. However, I figured I wouldnt get closer to finishing a marathon, and if I quit, would I ever again be able to force myself to complete one. Although not close to qualifying for Boston, I was elated with 4:30 and began planning my next marathon. He learned about the 50 States Marathon Club and set a goal to become a member, running in all 50 states and Washington D.C. In a way, leukemia has been a blessing. Because of the fatigue, Im not running marathons as fast as I would like, but I am having a blast going state to state and seeing our great country while doing what I enjoy running marathons. I would never have done this without leukemia. As a Christian, I truly believe that things happen that are designed to open our eyes. We have to be ever-vigilant for when that occurs and seize the moment. My moment came at the Prairie Fire Marathon in Wichita, Kansas in October of 2010. The race director contacted me about the local newspaper running an article about my running marathons around the country with leukemia. I had spent 2007-10 keeping my leukemia known to close friends only, but figured since no one knows me in Kansas, what the heck. A lady in Wichita read the article, tracked down where I was staying in Wichita for the marathon and called me. She said how inspired and encouraged she was with what I had accomplished. She went on to tell me about her young daughter who was recently diagnosed with leukemia and was starting chemotherapy. Her story really touched me and I knew what I had to do. I began to research foundations that focused on the treatment of childhood diseases and especially cancer. I checked out how much of the donations coming in were actually spent on treatment verses administrative cost and advertising. I had a friend who serves on the board of directors at St. Jude and Nemours. Nemours is a foundation that devotes all its time and resources on research and treatment of childhood diseases and especially pediatric cancer. So, I developed a website www.marathonwithleukemia.org and with the help of Nemours set up a direct donation link to their foundation. Hes been raising money ever since, wearing one of his Running for Kids with Cancer shirts as he marathons. Foundations like Nemours are dependent on donations. The National Cancer Society budgets $4.8 billion/year to cancer research. Less than 4 percent, about $175 million, is devoted to pediatric cancer. That is why the newest treatment for childrens leukemia was developed nearly 20 years ago, he said. My running, or faith in God, appeared to delay the need for chemo; however, in February my oncologist informed me that it was time. Again he asked if could continue to run. Fields said he was told Do whatever you feel like doing. However, you are not going to feel like doing it. Fields cites a quote from the director of the Crazy Horse Marathon: You dont limit your challenges, you challenge your limits. I guess that is what I have been doing. In June, South Bend, Ind., was my 34th State with leukemia in 29 months and fourth during chemotherapy. Believe me, it is easier taking the trash out. Chemotherapy is not for sissies. My treatments were three consecutive days every 21 days. This was followed by a three-day weekend of not being able to keep anything down, including water. I would lose 12 to 15 pounds and require IV fluids on Monday. I have heard of frail people who didnt survive the first round of chemo. Since I was in fairly decent shape I would be running another marathon two weekends later and get back just in time for the next round of chemo. He said his advice to others is get involved in some form of an exercise program. It will improve your quality of life as you get older. Fields is the son of the late Ann Fields, Sumter Countys first public health nurse, and is currently a professor of anatomy to students at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. Favorite marathons to date: Choteau, Montana afterwards, hiked Glacier National Park; Sedona, Arizona afterwards, stayed at El Tovar on the rim of the Grand Canyon; South Dakota started at Crazy Horse Monument near Mount Rushmore. Hardest: Estes Park with its altitude. I guess having sufficient red blood cells really is important. Philip Fields running in a marathon.

Extension office Drought tolerant plants for Sumter County W ater is our most precious resource in Florida. Over 90 percent of our drinking water comes from our aquifer and other water bodies. To conserve water in your landscape, you may want to consider using drought tolerant plants. These are plants that do very well during times when rainfall is scarce or there is a lack of irrigation. Lack of moisture in the soil can injure some plants. Drought tolerant plants have characteristics that help them cope with drought stress, characteristics other plant species do not have. Drought tolerant plants can include FloridaFriendly and native plants, but not all native plants or Florida-Friendly plants can be considered drought tolerant. When selecting plants, be sure to follow the first principle of Florida-Friendly Landscaping. Use the right plant for the right place. Prior to planting perform a pH test to determine what plants will grow best in the selected area. When planting, be sure to water your plants well to get established. Drought tolerant plants will require regular irrigation for about 6 weeks to 6 months to become established in the landscape. Trees that have a 2 caliper or larger, will take much longer to establish. Below is a sample of some common drought tolerant plants found within the landscape. For information visit sumter.ifas.ufl.edu. Drought Tolerant Trees Live Oak, Bottlebrush, Red Bud, Yaupon Holly, Southern Red Cedar, Crape Myrtle, Jerusalem Thorn, Elm, and Longleaf Pine. Drought Tolerant Shrubs Walters Viburnum, Rosemary, Pineapple Guava, Plumbago, Indian Hawthorn, Chaste Tree, Pomegranate, and Beautyberry. Drought Tolerant Palms/Cyads cabbage palm, Coontie, Mexican Fan Palm, Saw Palmetto, European Fan Palm, Pindo Palm, Lady Palm, Dwarf Palmetto, and Needle Palm. Drought tolerant Groundcovers Native Lantana, Bromeliads, Bermuda Grass, Beach Sunflower, Juniper, Asiatic Jasmine, Liriope, Society Garlic, and Gopher Apple. Drought tolerant Vines Trumpet Creeper, Cross Vine, Coral Honeysuckle, confederate Jasmine, Muscadine Grape, Native Wisteria, Carolina Jessamine, Creeping Fig, and Flame Vine.
