What investigators do know is that someone murdered the 89year-old Webster resident. They broke into her home in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 17, 1979, doused the place with old gasoline and set it ablaze. Authorities were alerted to the fire about 4:55 a.m. They also doused the elderly woman with gasoline. Her charred remains were found in bed in her bedroom. Torrance lived alone in the home on the west side of Webster. While there hasnt been an arrest in all these years, law enforcement investigators still maintain that they have a suspect just not enough evidence to arrest the person. B OB R EICHMAN Editor Someone set woman, 89, ablaze 43 pets taken Society seeks local support This is the seventh 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. County seeks Villages for development job If approved by county commissioners and voters, economic development for Sumter County would become the responsibility of The Villages during the upcoming 2011-12 fiscal year while the Chamber of Commerce will be out $16,000. The proposals are just several included in the budget proposal submitted to the County Commission for consideration by County Administrator Bradley Arnold. County commissioners met two days last week and finalized a proposed budget for the upcoming 2011-12 fiscal year that does not include an increase to taxpayers. They also agreed to pass economic development onto The Villages and to withhold financial support from the Chamber of Commerce. As far as economic development is concerned, currently, E5 Solutions is operating as Sumter County Economic Development. However, the companys contract with the county ends Sept. 30, 2011. With the end of the contract, so goes an annual amount of about $513,000. The board instructed Arnold to cease negotiations with E5 and instead the county will be looking toward The Villages to provide development services to the county. The Villages would assume the marketing function doing business as Sumter County Economic Development. The assistant director for development services would be the direct point of contact for any leads and follow up provided through these marketing efforts as well as continuing the direct existing business outreach, Arnolds budget proposal states. Arnold said last Friday that he will begin negotiations with The Villages to fulfill that role. He does not expect a final contract or a contractual amount to be ready before September. But is it odd to pay an adult retirement community as the countys provider of economic development services? I wouldnt call it odd, Arnold told the Times. Id call it unique. Because of its outstanding marketing record, The Villages is ideal for the role, he said.

B OB R EICHMAN Editor A South Sumter family voluntarily gave up 43 cats and dogs last week to animal care providers when the pets became too much for the family to deal with. All told, 18 dogs and 25 cats were removed from the home by representatives of the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. The animals are being cared for at the Humane Society facility in Sumterville. Were getting them ready for adoption or foster housing, said case investigator Sheri Evans. Evans said no charges are being filed and the family is not being identified because they were trying to get help for the animals. It was pretty overwhelming for the family and the living conditions for the animals were not desirable, Evans said. The dogs were housed in wirefenced kennels and the cats were kept in a housed area at the home that did not have air conditioning. Now that most of the animals are gone, the family can concentrate more on themselves and the dogs that were left with them, she said. Most of the animals are in good health, although some of the dogs will have to be treated for heartworms, Evans said. After their arrival at the Humane Society, volun-See CASE Page 3 See COUNTY Page 5 The Sumter County Special Investigations Squad, crime scene analysts, Sumter County Fire and Rescue and a disposal team from the Lake County Sheriffs Office swarmed a vehicle in The Villages last Friday morning when they discovered chemicals and devices for the manufacture of methamphetamines inside. A 1996 black GMC utility vehicle was stopped about 8:56 a.m. on County Road 466A for a speeding violation, according to a sheriffs office report. The vehicle failed to immediately yield at the time of the stop and the deputy saw the male driver switch places with a female passenger. The female driver then stopped the vehicle near C.R. 466A and S. Buena Vista Boulevard. The original driver was identified as Jesse P Burns, 29, of Leesburg, according to the report. The female passenger was identified as Crystal G. Thomasson, 31, of Wiersdale, and a third passenger was identified as the vehicles owners, James G. Yaeger III, 18, of Lady Lake, the report states. During the stop, deputies discovered that Burns was operating the vehicle with a revoked Florida drivers license and was wanted in Marion County for violating probation. Deputies then found the materials inside the vehicle and called in specialists to remove the hazardous materials. They seized 4.2 grams of methamphetamines, 294 grams of methamphetamine oil and 23 grams of ephedrine. Various agencies were called in to assist because of the volatile nature of the chemicals, said sheriffs Lt. Kevin Holfecker.. It was a potentially dangerous situation because those chemicals have an explosive nature.

teers were busy bathing the dogs to remove fleas and a veterinarian had worked late into one evening testing the animals to assure they could be adopted. The cats all tested negative for feline leukemia although some have eye infections that need to be cleared up, Evans said. Most of the dogs are mixed breeds many of them are only a year or two in age. There are five young puppies that cannot be adopted yet because they are still nursing. The dogs are friendly and were teaching them to walk on leases, Evans said. But while the animal confiscation may take pressure off the family, its also adding financial stress for the HS/SPCA. Already contending with a lag in financial assistance, the additional animals are creating a burden. Between tests, care and food, the cost is mounting. Its been a mean, lean summer, said Evans. This comes at a bad financial time for us, but if the community gets behind us and helps, well continue on. Evans said shes hoping that members of the community will help contribute to their care. Every little bit counts whether its $5 or $500.

Police report More than 7,300 teen drivers and passengers ages 13 to 19 died in traffic crashes between Memorial Day and Labor Day from 2005-2009 Summer is the deadliest time of year for teen drivers and passengers with seven of the top 10 deadliest days of the year occurring between the Memorial Day and Labor Day, according to an analysis of crash data completed by AAA. Since deadly traffic crashes peak for teens during the summer months of June, July and August, AAA urges parents with teen drivers to increase their focus on safety during summer. More than 7,300 teen drivers and passengers ages 13 to 19 died in traffic crashes between Memorial Day and Labor Day during the fiveyear period of 2005-2009. An average of 422 teens die in traffic crashes during each of the deadly summer months as compared to a monthly average of 363 teen deaths during the non-summer months, according to AAA. Parents need to go the extra mile and talk with their teen driver about responsible driving as well as the inherent risks associated with distracted driving, said John Pecchio, traffic safety manager, AAA Auto Club South. During the summer months teens are more care-free and excited to have the freedom to drive around, so its imperative parents help keep safety top of mind. Although Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee have Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) laws, Florida lacks restrictions on the number of passengers a teen driver can have in a vehicle as well as cell phone bans while driving. A recent poll by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows a clear majority, seven out of 10 Americans, favor stricter enforcement of driving laws. But regardless of the law, parents play a critical role in keeping teens safe To keep teens safe during these dangerous months and year round, parents should go beyond compliance of state laws and make teens abide by rules of the house, said AAA Foundation President and CEO Peter Kissinger. AAA Tips for Parents to Help Keep Teen Drivers Safe: Restrict driving and eliminate trips without purpose. Teens have three times as many fatal crashes as all other drivers, based on amount of miles driven, and a teens crash risk is highest during the first year of solo driving. Parents should limit teens driving to essential trips and only with parental permission for at least the first year of driving. Become an effective driving coach. The best way for new teen drivers to gain experience is through parentsupervised practice driving, where parents can share their wisdom accumulated over many years of driving. Even after a teen has a license that allows solo driving, parents and teens should continue to practice driving together to help the teen manage increasingly more complex and challenging driving conditions. AAAs Teaching Your Teens to Drive coaching program is a great tool to help parents become effective driving coaches for their teens and is available at 800-327-3444. Limit the number of teen passengers and time as a passenger. Teen crash rates increase with each teen passenger in the vehicle. Fatal crash rates for 16to 19year-olds increase fivefold when two or more teen passengers are present versus when teens drive alone. Also, riding in a vehicle with a teen driver can be risky for teen passengers. Crash risk begins to increase at the age of 12, well before a teen can obtain a drivers permit or license and before many parents start to think about their children being at risk riding as a passenger of a teen driver. Parents should set firm rules against driving with teen passengers and restrict their teens from riding as a passenger with a teen driver. Restrict night driving. A teen drivers chances of being involved in a deadly crash doubles when driving at night. Many parents rightly limit driving during the highest-risk late night hours, yet they should limit evening driving as well, as more than half of nighttime crashes occur between 9 p.m. and midnight. AAA recommends that newly-licensed teens not drive after 9 or 10 p.m. AAA: Deadliest days for teen drivers

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 21, 2011 Villages proposal is odd at best! I ts definitely a win-win situation for The Villages. During county budget hearings last week, County Administrator Bradley Arnold got the green light from the County Commission to begin negotiating with The Villages to take the lead in encouraging and promoting new growth in Sumter County. Commissioners agreed not to renew a contract that ends in Sept. with E5 Solutions to the tune of more than $500,000 a year and instead use The Villages for that role. While Arnold is saying he still has to draft a contract for the service and doesnt know what the amount will be for their services, you can bet it will be substantial. Arnold, and apparently county commissioners, believe that with The Villages strong marketing skills, they are the perfect choice to become Sumter County Economic Development. Arnold points to the strong growth that still continues in The Villages despite the faltering economy. Hes also probably correct when he says that many of The Villages residents are successful business leaders and may be in opportune situations to entice their associated businesses to move to Sumter County. Unfortunately, we dare to speculate that would mean more focus on Villages development rather than Sumter County development. The Villages encompasses three counties, not just Sumter, and theres plenty of open space still available around there. In comparison, take a drive along Bushnells main streets. Youll see a lot of empty buildings and plenty of closed businesses. Is The Villages likely to concentrate on that economic dilemma? This situation brings up some questions, the first of which is: should a county contract, and pay money to, a private development inside that county for county services? It certainly sends a clear message that the two are working together which is ironic, because thats the exact reason the County Commission gave for not agreeing to fund a $16,000 budgetary request from the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce. They didnt want to give the impression that somehow the county has influence over the Chamber of Commerce by providing them with money. Some may consider this trying to compare apples to oranges but we do see problems. Arnold may consider the agreement as unique. We call it odd at best. Killer of four motorcyclists going to prison On March 13, 2010 Paul Sermons got drunk, got into his truck, and decided to drive down County Road 476 in Sumter County. The traffic in front of him going slower than Sermons wanted, he began passing other vehicles. The two motorcycles coming in the other direction had no chance. Sermons hit both bikes ejecting all four riders; with one rider being launched into the windshield of the truck Sermons was passing. All the motorcyclists were killed. On June 10, 2011, Sermons was found guilty of four counts of DUI Manslaughter and one count of driving on a suspended drivers license. A few weeks later on July 6, 2011, the Honorable Judge Hallman had Sermons in his courtroom for the last time. By the time this final hearing was over, it was decided; Paul Sermons would never again walk as a free man. Not only did Judge Hallman sentence Sermons to life in prison, he sentenced Sermons to one life sentence for each of the four people he killed as well as pulling his drivers license for life and many fines and fees. ABATE of Florida members from many chapters were at every hearing throughout this case. Our members were there to offer support to the victims families from the beginning to the end of the hearings and trial. The court recognized our presence from our members being in the courtroom to asking potential jurors if they were ABATE members. Although justice was finally served in this case, all must understand that in the end, there were no winners. ABATE of Florida, Inc. is Floridas largest motorcyclists rights organization, and one of the top four largest nationwide. ABATE of Florida members come from all walks of life and include many elected officials. Our missions are to educate the public about motorcycle awareness and continuing to fight in Tallahassee for the rights of every motorcyclist and the public in general. To aid in these ends, we have an exclusive lobbyist and have founded the Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Program, both with the intentions to help make the roads safer for everyone. ABATE of Florida, Inc. Dangers of Internet pornography Having just celebrated our nations birth, I thought that my fellow Americans should be alerted to one of the most dangerous activities destroying America today, causing personal and familial heartache, moral decay and a weakening of the American spirit, initiative and drive: Internet pornography. Our nation was founded on great freedoms, high morals and sane laws. However, we do not need to be bombarded with decadent messages which seep daily into our moral fabric, show up in our dress, degrade our values and negatively affect our behavior. Porn is our new drug of choice, a drug which hypnotizes its viewers, weakens their minds and promotes promiscuity and permissiveness. We Americans have become an immoral, permissive and degraded group. Rome, too, was once a mighty empire which fell prey to immorality and decadence. Shall this, too, be our fate? According to online research services, in the U.S. alone, Internet pornography generates more revenue than all the combined revenues of all of the NFL, MLB and NBA sports franchises. In fact, U.S. porn revenues exceed the combined revenues of ABC, CBS and NBC! ($6.2 billion, at last count.) America, instead of wasting your time watching porn, why dont we find other sane and creative outlets which enhance us, not degrade us! We Americans used to lead the world in great and dramatic ways. Lets set a better example by choosing to turn away from porn. Sincerely, Sean Thau Tampa The driver, the bin climber and me N o its not the happy followup to Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. Instead, its another foray into the world of garbage picking and dumpster diving though I cannot believe its happened again. I believe this is the third time in recent months. It happened back when I was using someone elses car, but I was reminded of it today when I had to fish something out of the office garbage Never mind that, this is about dumpster diving, not the office garbage. As for the dumpster diving excursion, Im really not sure it was all my fault. The friend who owned the car placed some important items on the backseat and warned me not to let anything happen to them. That was the same day I had a collection of papers in the backseat to go to the recycle bin. Now when I say it may not be all my fault, all Im really saying is, look who he was talking to. Youd think hed know better. Anyway, I dropped the papers off, careful to make sure the items were still on the seat, drove home and gave the car back. About an hour later I got a phone call from the owner of the car. You didnt toss my paperwork that was on the backseat did you? No. I made sure it was still there when I put the papers in the recycle bin. I knew it was all there I saw it Its not here now. Uh-ohhh It couldnt be I know I am absolutely certain NOOOOOOOO way. Already, I knew what I had to do. I had to drive back across the county and climb into that nasty recycle bin. Then it dawned on me I didnt have a car and possibly more important, I certainly couldnt drag myself to the top of that eight-foot bin and jump over. I couldnt do a pull-up when I was skinny, it was pretty unlikely it was going to happen now. I began to get nervous and nauseous. What was I going to do? I would hire someone, thats it! Someone to drive me and someone to climb inside. I had to coordinate the pickup and drag my little kitchen ladder along, but about 30 minutes later we were back at the bin the driver, the bin climber and me. The driver sat in the car with her grandchild while the bin climber and I headed outside. I pulled out my ladder but he just looked at me, grabbed the top of the side and pulled himself up like it was nothing. I stood there in awe. Then he jumped down into a pile of papers and even some magazines. Hey, those magazines any good ? I asked. He just looked at me again then grabbed the trio he had thrown to the back of the bin and handed them to me. One by one he sorted through newspapers. He was getting near the bottom and I was getting nervous. Finally, with only two or three newspapers left in the pile, there they were skinny little notebooks filled with all kinds of receipts. Phew that was over. Now heres the real dilemma I mean really, how much do you pay someone who just dove head first into a dumpster for you? Especially considering its pretty likely youll need them again in the future...

OPINIONS INVITED A step beyond Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor As horrible as the death of Caylee Anthony is and regardless of whether you believe her mother guilty or not-guilty the abuse and ill treatment of children in our state is a fact. When sensational cases such as this hit the media the cry for justice is loud and recriminations even louder. How could this happen? What kind of person would do this to a child? What can we do to prevent this type of thing from happening in the future? This must be an isolated case, right? Wrong! Abused and neglected children are all around us. In Florida alone there are currently over 22,000 children that have been abused or neglected in some manner or other and now they and their parents are involved in lengthy dependency court proceedings. Here in the 5th Judicial Circuit, which includes Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus and Hernando counties, nearly 1,500 children find themselves involved with the Judicial and Child Welfare systems. What can I do? Is there any way I can help? Yes. Become a Volunteer Guardian ad Litem. A Guardian ad Litem is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a volunteer supervisor and program attorney. He or she becomes familiar with the child and his/her case and makes recommendations to the court to help insure a safe, caring, stable and permanent environment is secured for the child. Today in Florida more than 7,500 citizens are volunteering with the Guardian ad Litem Program. However, here in the 5th Circuit, fewer than 500 volunteers are actively looking out for the health, welfare and care of our dependent children. We need more help. To qualify as a Guardian ad Litem volunteer, you must be 21 years of age or older, successfully complete 30 hours of pre-service training, have a clean criminal background check and possess the ability to be objective. On average, volunteers spend 6 to 10 hours a month on a case that may last about 10 months. If youre interested in volunteering or learning more about how you can help abused and neglected children, contact Lynn Sennett at (352) 369-2525 or e-mail her at Lynn.Sennett@GAL.FL.GOV or visit our web site at www.guardianadlitem.org.

Burns was held without bond on the Marion County warrant. All three were placed in the Sumter County Detention Center. ment is still pulling in 20 development permits a month during a downturned economy, he said. If thats not a tangible marketing method than what is? Arnold also said many new residents to The Villages are business owners and company officers. By having The Villages as economic development, those people may also encourage their associated businesses to move to Sumter. They didnt approach us with this idea, we approached them about this to jump onto their successful bandwagon. In other business-related budget topics, Arnolds report recommended denying a funding request of $16,000 from the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce which commissioners supported. The rationale for the elimination of the direct cash subsidy, is due to the desire of Sumter County BOCC to only participate as a member of the Chamber of Commerce, the desire to see the Chamber of Commerce serve its business members rather than assuming a role of serving all County business regardless of their membership affiliation with the Chamber of Commerce, and finally to support the Chamber of Commerce in obtaining its own self-determination without the perception that of Sumter County BOCC is directing its operations any more so than a business member in good standing would. While the budget provides funding to maintain or increase the current level of county services, with a few exceptions, it provides a millage rate this is at the rolled back rate and therefore constitutes no legal tax increase, according to proposed budgetary information compiled by Arnold. The recommended tentative millage rate is 6.32. This is the seventh year in a row the County has been able to prepare a budget at or below the projected calculated rolled-back rate and thereby meeting the legal test of no tax increase. The proposed rollback tax rate is expected to be adopted when the board meets on July 26. The public hearings for the proposed budget will be held in September.

The stop resulted in the arrest of three suspects and the discovery of methamphetamine supplies inside the vehicle. Boundary dispute ends in arrest A boundary dispute led to the arrest of a Center Hill man last week when he threatened to shoot two men he believed were clearing his property. Aaron C. Bass, 32, was arrested Thursday, July 14, for aggravated battery with a firearm. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $7,000. The incident started when members of a land clearing crew called 911 fearful that the suspect was going to shoot them, according to a sheriffs office report. The men were on S.E. 55th Way clearing land on Central Beef property when they were reportedly confronted by Bass wielding a gun. Bass confronted the men believing they were clearing his land and not the land of Central Beef, the report states. Bass was armed with a 9mm Ruger handgun. Bass reportedly pointed the pistol at the men and threatened to shoot them if they did not stop clearing his land. Fearful of violence, the men made the emergency call. The victims said that they were clearing land owned by Central Beef that had been recently purchased and that the land was within the boundary based on a survey of the property conducted at the time of purchase. Bass disputes the claim. No one was injured in the incident. Aaron C.

P AGE 8S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 21, 2011 Sumter business The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting event in celebration of the grand opening of Salon Unique in Lake Panasoffkee. Salon Unique is a full service salon offering cut, color, style and more. Appointments and walk-ins are welcome. For more information call 568-0049. The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of the West Bushnell Fire Station 22. This location is strategically significant in that it addresses the need for a fire station at the western area of the city which is cut-off geographically by a railroad line with no overhead crossing from the existing fire station that serves this area. In keeping with fire house tradition, Commissioner Don Burgess cut the ribbon on the new station by taking apart couplings on a fire hose. Ribbon cutting Red, White and Blue BBQ planned by Chamber Barbecue and recognition are on the agenda in early August as the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Sumter host the Red, White and Blue BBQ. Slated from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 5, the barbecue will be at Lakeside Landings in Oxford and celebrate the service of local emergency rescue personnel. Its designed to give the public a chance to honor police, fire and emergency medical technicians in the area who are nominated by the community for an outstanding job, according to Sumter County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Andy Cripps. This is the third annual Red, White and Blue BBQ, he said. Along with the emergency personnel, theres a Community Hero Civilian Award, given out. These are community heroes who go out of their way everyday to protect us and to help us, Cripps said. This is one way the community recognizes them. Im proud that our chamber does this and that we get the community involved in that effort. The event is open to the public and tickets are $20 per person in advance and $25 per person at the event. Theyre barbecuing up beef and chicken for dinner and the event is presented in conjunction with the Leadership Sumter program, he said, explaining that class members do a lot of the work that goes into the program in an effort to give back to the community.

And it was their duty to make sure that there was no possibility that a two-year-old would be either bitten or in any way harmed by such a large animal. Those were the words of the juror who served as foreman in the manslaughter case of two-year-old Shaiunna Hare last Thursday. Jurors deliberated for less than two hours before finding the little girls mother, Jaren Ashley Hare, 21 and the mothers boyfriend, Charles Jason Darnell, 34, guilty of manslaughter, murder in the third degree and child abuse in the childs death. After the trial the jury foreman agreed to talk with media representatives but asked that her name be withheld and her face not shown. She said their initial discussion was in understanding the law. we wanted to understand Florida law specifically how it applied to what we understood had happened, so we were very careful to go through the charges and the written instructions that came from the judge, she said in front of the Sumter County judicial complex following the verdict. She said they went through each count as it applied to each of the two defendants. At that point it was relatively simple for us to come to our decision. She noted that once they reached the decision, We were 100 percent positive, as a collective group, that we had done the right thing, made the right decision. When asked about having to view photos from the scene, she said, It was very difficult, it was the most emotional part of the week for all us. We feel extremely upset about having to make this decision but we believe it was the correct one. She said they were able to make the decision, Because we took the time to understand what child neglect means in the legal sense of the state of Florida, what culpable negligence means in the state of Florida and it was clear to us that these two defendants were guilty on these two counts. The couple was accused of preventing a more than 8-foot 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. He also told investigators that the snake was inside the aquarium when he went to bed the evening before the childs death but he later found it in the hallway. He then put it in a mesh bag and returned it to the aquarium. He found the snake wrapped around the girl 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.

On Sunday, July 17, Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church, Royal celebrated providing spiritual uplifting, comfort and services to the Community of Royal. According to available records, Mt. Moriah AME Church Wildwood, is the mother church of Ebenezer AME Church. The first settlers that came to this community walked five miles to the old Mt. Moriah cemetery to be in worship with the members of Mt. Moriah AME Church. In 1875, Rev. Alfred Brown established and built the first church in the Community of Royal. The church property was purchased for the sum of five dollars from William and Elsie Harley. The deed was made to the trustees of Ebenezer AME Church and their successors in office, Picketsville, Sumter County, Florida now known as Royal. There has been four churches built on this property, two wooden and two block. Construction on the present edifice began in 1972. The cornerstone was laid March 29, 1981, by Royal Masonic Lodge No. 129, Rudolph Bradley, Grand Master, the Rt. Rev. S.S. Morris, Presiding Bishop, Rev. L. L. Johnson, Presiding Elder and Rev. Jerome Andrews, Pastor. Bishop Morris also delivered the message for the occasion. His subject was The Right Connections. There has been 20 pastors, who served at Ebenezer, including Rev. Jerome Andrews. Rev. Jerome Andrews came to Ebenezer on January 1, 1955 and served as pastor until September 2000, a total of 45 years. He was the first pastor to retire from this church. Bishop Frank C. Cummings preached the retirement message. His subject was A Faithful Servant. Reverend Andrews, who is 100 years old, was one of the distinguished guests at the celebratory service on this past Sunday. Since 2009, Rev. Robert Thomas Dixon is presently serving as pastor. The Rev. Dr. Kenyetta Rivers was the speaker of the hour and his subject was God has been our help, Bible text 1 Samuel. Also, there was a crowning of the Little Miss Ebenezer Queen contest. The contestants were a part of the churchs youth department: Ms. Chimesa Thomas, Ms. Kandai Towns and Ms. Simone Wilson. Simone Wilson, who raised the largest contribution, was crowned the queen by First Lady Lillie Dixon. A glorious, prayerful and spiritual time was had by all. Ebenezer services are: 11 a.m. morning worship on 1st and 3rd Sundays and at 9 a.m. on 2nd and 4th Sundays. Bible study at 7 p.m., on Tuesdays. All are welcomed; at any time.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 21, 2011, P AGE 13 Sisters set for 105-mile benefit ride Diane Strickland and her sisters are hitting the road again with some support from Sonnys barbecue restaurant. Strickland, an Oxford resident, is preparing for an upcoming bike ride that will lead her on a three-state trek to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). Sonnys, at 1128 Canal St., The Villages, is supporting Stricklands effort by donating 15 percent of a diners purchase to the foundation between the hours of 5 and 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 2. Strickland will be at the restaurant that evening to talk about her upcoming ride. On Aug. 13, in Wisconsin, Strickland along with her sisters Lynn Page and A.J. Matison will join hundreds of other riders across the country to ride 105 miles to reach their goal of raising $5 million. The sisters participated in a similar ride in 2009 through Death Valley. It was such a rewarding experience, sharing our familys story of juvenile diabetes, that we have decided to ride again this year to help support JDRF in their research to find a cure for juvenile diabetes, she said. With both my sister A.J. and my nephew, Britain (Lynns son) living with juvenile diabetes, we personally know how important this research can be. On Aug. 13, the sisters will meet in La Cross, Wis., and ride 105 miles through three states, crossing two bridges and along a river. But we wont be intimidated and we wont be stopped, Strickland said. This is a challenge that we will accept with over 300 riders who have the power of their supporters and donors behind them like us, to take on diabetes and make a difference. Stricklands goal for the ride is to raise $2,500. More than 85 percent of JDRFs expenditures directly support research and research-related education, she said. To donate to Stricklands efforts, visit ww.SistersOnBikes.com. Submitted photo Diane Strickland, of Oxford, and sisters A.J.

Sonnys restaurant supports cause B OB R EICHMAN Editor Knights Of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary of Saint Lawrence Catholic Church is helping needy students return to school equipped to learn. For some, making it easier for students to succeed in their education is an investment in the future that pays extraordinary dividends for society. Providing young people with the tools of learning ensures that the current economic downturn does not diminish those returns. Others may view their support for students in struggling families at a more personal level, repaying thoughtful acts of anonymous generosity from their own school days. Each approach is very much in the spirit of recognizing we are all in this together. The need for help is great and this is an opportunity to help kids who might otherwise have no way of getting the necessary supplies for the new school year, especially in the current economy when families are struggling to meet their basic needs. Anyone wishing to participate in the Pack to School drive is encouraged to pick up extra school supplies when shopping for back-toschool items. The most needed items are: backpacks, blunt scissors, calculators, colored markers, crayons, erasers, facial tissue, folders, glue sticks, loose-leaf line notebook paper, No. 2 pencils, pencil sharpeners, pens, rulers, spiral notebooks and three-ring binders. Giving back to our community also means helping our youngest community members get the solid start they need to excel in their studies. I encourage everyone to donate to the Pack to School drive. Our goal is to have all donations by Aug. 7 to ensure our students have their supplies prior to entering school. Members of the public can drop off donations at Saint Lawrence Catholic Church, 320 East Dade Avenue, Bushnell. Office phone 793-7788 The Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary is a very active council. The ladies work hard in raising funds to give back to our community. Money and supplies raised by the Ladies Auxiliary goes to benefit our community, the following organizations have benefited by the fund raising activities: Farm Workers of Florida, SCARC, Lane Purcell Hospice Fund, Footprints Ministries, Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes, Saint Leo Abbey in support of a seminarian, Home for unwed Mothers, South Sumter ROTC and School Supplies for the schools of Sumter County. The love for God, Family and Community is what binds the hard working members of the Ladies Auxiliary, please help by giving and getting involved.

That was Saturday in Lake Panasoffkee as organizations gathered, volunteers served and more than 550 residents participated in the third annual Back-to-School Luau. Hosted at the Lake Panasoffkee United Methodist Church, this years event had a completely new twist as the Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Project became the coordinating organization. This year, there were more than two dozen exhibitors on hand to share information with families everything from native plants and church programs to Kids Centrals assistance programs. Headed by LPNP community facilitator Tammy Gorbry, the vendors included the Sumter County Health Department, the First Baptist Church of Lake Panasoffkee, ACCESS, the countys Emergency Operations Center, Gorby also serves as the co-chair for the Sumter County Childrens Alliance. Coordinators tied the churchs annual luau in with the positive youth development of Devereaux Kids, working to provide preventative resources to the community. She said the idea is to look at the needs of both the current and future generations of youth. As for the event, I though it went extremely well. It was such a collaborative effort on the part of so many people, Gorby said. Along with the local coordination, it was a big networking effort. She said volunteers stepped up ahead of time to gather sponsors for the event and donations of equipment. Gorby also had high praise for the Sumter Correctional Institution. The facility has adopted the Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Project as their community service project for the next two years. Boot camp inmates were at the church by 7 a.m., doing set-up. It was a great community building event. A great outreach to families that need assistance, she said. The project included a giveaway of 113 backpacks filled with school supplies, as well as 100 back sacks for students ready to head back to the classroom. Families were also able to find clothes and shoes, as well as get free haircuts. Tina Graves of Tinas Makin Waves, Kristi Farr of Salon Unique and Angela Ferguson of LaGents worked for several hours straight, giving free haircuts. The stylists donated their time and experience to the project. Gorby said it was not only an individual community effort to raise awareness, but a collaborative effort with outside agencies as well. For example, the sheriffs office, Haven and the Early Learning Coalition got the word out through their organizations, expanding the effort and response. It was also just a fun-filled day for families, she said, citing the bounce house, water slides, facepainting and games. The inflatibles were donated for use by Rex Lowe, the First Assembly of God in Sumterville and the live music was by Mike Weaver and Allen Keene of the Lake Panasoffkee Baptist Church. Even the dumpster and porta-potty were donated those by GoodFellas. Gorby said theyve gotten positive feedback from those who attended the event, expressing their gratitude. So many people were able to take advantage of the outreach and so many people did want to get engaged in their community, she said. Supplies and foods were donated too for example, Steve and Cathy Brunner donated many of the school supplies, as well as half the hot dogs and buns, a lot of school supplies, and snow cones. The next meeting of the LPNP is slated for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 1. For questions about the LPNP or contacting some of the service providers, call Gorby at 352-4462064. Service providers included: the LPNP Lake Panasoffkees Church of the Fisherman and First Baptist Church Celebrate Recovery, Parenting Education and the First Baptist Church of Bushnell, Hope Pregnancy Center, Take Stock in Children, Awanas, 4-H, Disaster Preparedness Emergency Operations Center, Native Plants, SWAT and the Sumter County Health Department, 40 Developmental Assets, Kids Central, Inc., Integral Quality Care, ACCESS Florida, Lifestream Behavioral Center, Department of Children and Families, Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, Guardian Ad Litem.

H anna Banana and I enjoy hiking adventures, particularly in the mountains. The air is cool and crisp, the scents are intoxicating, and the views are breathtaking. We will spend hours hiking up to mountain peaks, and then down rocky gorges, through lush forests, and open meadows. Some trails are an easy leisurely walks, others moderate, and many strenuous. Nothing stops us, we just keep on hiking! As in any exercise activity, it is important to be physically in shape before starting out. At least a month before a planned adventure, Hanna Banana and I start a workout routine that builds up our stamina and prepares our bodies for our upcoming undertaking. Hanna Banana is always ready and willing to go, and she makes our training sessions fun and enjoyable. When the big day arrives, I need to pack my backpack with some necessary items. Water! Not just for me, but for Hanna Banana too. So I need to carry her collapsible drinking bowl. Energy bars and healthy dog treats! The energy bars are for me, and healthy energy packed dog treats are for Hanna Banana. And of course I bring a sandwich that we both can share. But that is not all. In my backpack I carry first aide items that can be used by both me and my dog. I pack Benadryl, first aide cream, bandages, and band aides. Once Hanna Banana got stung by a bee, and her face immediately started to swell up. She looked like a little bull dog! Benadryl quickly relieved the swelling, and she was better in no time. Now that the backpack is filled with everything we need for a fun and safe day, there is one more thing left to do. Hanna Banana slips into her halter with a 5 ft. lead. On her halter as well as her collar she is wearing her identification tags. Ok we are ready to go! The hike planned for the day is to Glen Falls in Highlands, North Carolina. My hiking book tells us that it is a strenuous hike with beautiful waterfalls to view. No problem! We have trained for this. We are packed and ready for the adventure!

P AGE 16SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 21, 2011 Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 329 Anglers Bass Fishing 289 Bass caught 403 Bass Released 391 Pan Fish Caught 531Quote of the week: Perch swallows the grub-worm, the pickerel swallows the perch, and the fisherman swallows the pickerel; and so all the chinks in the scale of being are filled. Henry David ThoreauFishing Report: I realize its hot outside, but the fish dont care so much about that. Whether your bass fishing or pan fishin, fish early and fish the shade which is the pace to be for you and the fish. Bass love to hang out under docks, logs, trees, etc., more so than pan fish with the exception of perhaps stump knockers, which are a good fightin fish that love shady creeks. Regarding bait, stump knockers enjoy red worms and my pick for bass this time of year would be plastic worms in particular June bug and watermelon, which we carry plenty of. Changing gears for a moment, I have been including info in recent reports about what I hope will be a big time bass tournament and festival which I plan to include every business in in Sumter County during the month of March of 2012. I promise to keep everyone posted in future articles. As for this past weeks fishing action: Lemar Miller with his grandsons were out on the lake for a nice outing as a family and caught these nice Bass. Mr. Miller was teaching his grandsons how to catch big Bass. On a personal note; Lemar is a good Christian and teaches me a lot every time I see him. He is truly a good man. The Shellcrackers were biting in front of the point and the fishermen were gathered around like a wagon train trying to catch there dinner. Brook Lambert was staying at Tracys Point with her dad and caught this nice Bluegill off the dock. This is the first time Brook has ever been to a fish camp and she told her dad that she wants to come back so that she and her sister can stay in a cabin and go fishing again. Kayla and Annie Gordon were fishing with their grandpa and caught 70 shellcrackers right out in front of the point. Rule changes became effective on June 20, 2011: The Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission has adopted several rule changes: To help anglers adjust to the change, the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission has printed 20,000 posters and distributed them to tackle stores and other places fishermen are likely to congregate. Unfortunately Tracys Point has not yet been a recipient of these posters. The posters spell out the new bass rule provisions: A five-fish-per-person daily limit. A minimum size of 14 inches south and east of the Suwannee River, 12 inches in North Florida and the Panhandle. A trophy-bass limit of one fish exceeding 22 inches per day. Along with the posters, the commission has printed a pamphlet explaining the new regulations, plus giving instructions on how to comply with the law, For example, when measuring a bass to see if it meets the 14-inch minimum, anglers are advised to squeeze the sides of the tail together. Then, they should measure overall length rather than measuring to the fork or one tip of the tail. The brochure also warns against cleaning the fish while youre still fishing. It is illegal to fillet any fish or remove their heads or tails until you are through fishing for the day, the pamphlet reads. GFC Fisheries Director Dennis Holcomb said that to help anglers adjust to the new size limits, the commission also is distributing 50,000 adhesive rulers to be attached to a boat or tackle box. On the rulers, the key measurements of 12, 14 and 22 inches are printed in a larger type face. Holcomb said he expects most fishermen to willingly abide by the new rules. I think public sentiment is behind the new rule, he said. All the feedback were getting indicates weve got a lot of support for the regulation. A commission survey revealed anglers favored the change by a 5-1 margin. To bolster that support and make sure the angling public gets the word, the commissions law enforcement division is planning an intensive on-the-water effort next weekend. The commission has no formal policy to ease in the enforcement of the new rule during the first few weeks, so whether violators get a warning or a citation will be at the officers discretion, Weaver said. The new rule is being put into effect to help stop the decline of Floridas bass populations. Since the 1950s, bass have had almost no protection from overfishing. The only rule limited anglers to keeping 10 fish per day, but there were no minimum or maximum size limits. FWC staffers have said the average angler tends to keep any bass that are at least 10 inches long. With the increase in the states population and interest in bass fishing, that means the bass were being killed before they could grow to full size. Biologists calculate it takes a bass five years to reach the 3-to 5-pound size that is considered a quality fish and 8 to 10 years to attain 8-to 10-pound trophy size. Not enough bass have been surviving to maintain a quality bass fishery state wide. With the new rules in place, the biologists hope to see an increase in larger bass in three to five years.

This has been one of the best years, said Mike Eastburn of the local Dixie Youth ball teams. He said Sumter County has five teams that have played or will play in state competition this year and one, the Bushnell Mini Minors team, thats heading to the Regional World Series. Wildwood T-Ball and Bushnell and Wildwood 13 and 14 year olds have already played at the state level, while Wildwood and Bushnell Majors will be playing for the state title starting this Saturday in Brooksville and the 16 and under team played in Chipley this week. Its a pretty impressive year, he said. Eastburn attributes it to the skills of the players and support of the parents and coaches. Its just a lot of community participation, he said. Along with the parent support, he said the volunteers make a big difference, pointing out that people like Ronnie Hawkins who coaches pitching and Wendall Gill give their time, even though they dont have any kids on the teams. He believes the volunteer efforts help to make the community better. Theres one other facet that Eastburn has led to success. I think it pretty much started about two years ago. He said thats when the baseball academy, Grand Slam U.S.A. opened and players were able to get additional instruction on playing. In recent months, the academy has closed and owner Fred Popp is now coaching at South Sumter High School. Popp is also the coach for the 16 and under team. Last Saturday the youth league hosted a scrimmage game between Wildwood and Bushnell, just before they headed off to state. Bushnell took the win by one run, 9-8. They also hosted a homerun derby, working to raise funds for travel expenses for both the Bushnell and Wildwood teams during the state tournament. Eastburn said they had about 30 participants in the derby and raised about $280. The Bushnell Majors were still short about $2,000 on their expense needs earlier this week, but Eastburn said they were hoping to make it by the weekend. The Mini Minor team just began their fundraising theyre hosting a barbecue dinner fundraiser today, Thursday, July 21, and a 50/50 raffle drawing for $1,000. Dinner tickets are $6 each, raffle tickets are $10 each. Eastburn said the community should be very proud of the players, countywide.
