Fifteen Sumter County residents are accused of participating in a major drug trafficking ring that ran from Mexico, through several southern states and finally ended with drug distribution in Central Florida. The 15 Sumter residents were named along with five other persons who were indicted last week by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Methamphetamine Task Force. All the defendants are charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamines, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Robert E. ONeill. Were thankful for the indictments, said sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. They send a strong message that any drug dealing, of any time, will not be tolerated and that we will use whatever resources are available to pursue and bring drug dealers to justice. The drug trafficking organization sold large quantities of methamphetamine in the Central Florida area from an undetermined time until July 28, according to the release. The methamphetamine originated in Mexico and was transported through Texas to Georgia. From there, it was sent by Josue Aleman-Valdez, also known as Gabino, by couriers, from Atlanta, Ga., to Central Florida several times a week, the report states. It was then distributed to other members of the drug trafficking organization operating in Central Florida the report states. Each of the 20 defendants is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum penalty of life in federal prison for each county.

Gadson had just received and cashed at $1,500 income tax refund check. It is believed to be the motive for her murder back in April of 1981. But after questioning numerous suspects and subjecting them to polygraph tests, not enough evidence was ever collected to result in an arrest for her murder. Heres what investigators do know in the case: An eyewitness saw two black men force Gadson into a brown Ford station wagon about midnight back in early April 1981.

Hunter Davis gets a hug from American Idol winner Scotty McCreery, backstage at an Orlando concert. McCreery is one of her favorites. If you travel the roads in Sumter County, chances are good that youve been behind one. Sometimes, it seems those big yellow buses are everywhere. As a new school year is gearing up, so are the school buses that transport students to and from county schools. Last year, the Sumter County School District spent $3.5 million in costs associated with hauling Sumter students back and forth to their educational facilities. Not only does it take a substantial amount of money to transport the students, it also requires traveling a lot of miles. In a year, the school buses travel more than one million miles through the countys 546 squaremile area and spend about $348,000 in fuel costs, according to information from the state Department of Education (DOE). By the way, all the buses use diesel gasoline.

Jason Matthew Coello, 27, was arrested Friday, July 29, on 25 counts of possession of obscene material depicting children participating in various sexual conduct, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The sheriffs office launched an investigation about a week before the arrest when family members voiced concerns that Coello may be in possession of child pornography, Hofecker said. During a preliminary investigation, a detective contacted Coello and asked if he could preview or review material on his computer, Hofecker said. Coello refused and the state Department of Children and Families and Coellos probation officer became involved. At the time, Coello was on probation for possession of marijuana.

Officers of the Sumter County Sheriffs Office participated in the investigation. In February, a largescale drug sweep was conducted locally to terminate the drug pipeline. At the time, several residences in Sumter, Lake, Citrus and Marion counties were identified as distribution points and meeting locations. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration confiscated close to $200,000 worth of cocaine and methamphetamine as well as several vehicles and money during the operation. according to the sheriffs office cold case report. No one knew what happened to Gadson until four days later. About 3:30 p.m. on April 6, 1981, her body was found by two men who were searching for her in a wooded area off County Road 291, about one mile west of the Wildwood city limits. Investigators say Gadson was murdered where the men discovered her body. She had been shot in the face with a 12-gauge shotgun. She was fully clothed and jewelry was still on her body. Anyone with information is urged to contact Sumter sheriffs Major Gary Brannen at 793-0222. If youve ever driven behind one and wondered just how many stops they make to pick up students, the answer is 1,922 stops in a year in Sumter County.. Sumter has 91 school buses with 67 in daily service, according to the DOE statistical report. It takes 68 bus drivers, 12 substitute drivers and 12 bus attendants to ensure that students are transported to their destinations. Of the 7,554 students enrolled in county schools last year, 2,839 relied on bus transportation or 37 percent.. Right now, things are hopping at the school bus yard, off Palm Avenue in Bushnell. Were gearing up for the new school year, said Eric Suber, district transportation supervisor. Were making sure that all the buses are in good inspection to get back on the roads. The first day of school for students is Aug. 10. In preparation for the students, all school bus drivers will be going through a training program on Aug. 2. Basically what we do is go over any new legislation or rules that the drivers need to know, Suber said. We also refresh them on safety procedures on the buses and make them aware of any new safety features. Bullying has been a hot topic in schools and bus drivers are training to deal with bullying situations, he said. For the most part, the buses start rolling out between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. Because some schools have staggered starting times, bus drivers often have two different routes during a day one for elementary school students and the other for secondary school students. By about 4:30 or 5 p.m., the buses are back in the yard. One concern as the new school year starts motorists who do not stop for school buses that are loading and unloading students. In a 28-state study of motorist illegally passing school buses when they are stopped, 112,000 participating bus drivers reported 37,756 incidents where motorists did not stop for the school buses. In Florida, 9,000 violations were reported, Suber said. Locally, I think we have about six or seven in one day, he said. Were constantly aware of this problem and students are asked to wait for the bus driver to motion to them before coming across a street to get onto a bus. Fortunately, Sumter hasnt had an incident where someone was injured, Suber said. But motorist need to be aware, when the school bus lights start flashing red, they need to stop, he said. METH continued from Page 1 computer and the officer found images that he felt were child pornography, Hofecker said. Coello was arrested after investigators found 25 images of child pornography on the computer, according to Hofecker. More than one computer was seized from Coellos home and there contents are currently being examined, he said. Additional charges may result following the examination. Coello was additionally charged with violation of probation. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond.

On Saturday, July 30, Sumter County sheriffs detectives dismantled a Bushnell marijuana grow operation. At about 5:47p.m., sheriffs deputies responded to a residence in the 8400 block of C.R. 614A after a family member reported discovering the operation in the residence. The detectives with the sheriffs Special Investigations Squad responded and executed a search warrant for the property. The residence is a rental property owned by the family member who discovered the operation. Detectives confiscated 37 marijuana plants, a lighting source, and other paraphernalia found inside the residence. Arrested were Jarrod P Lane, 25, and Camilla J. Bran-nen, 19, of Bushnell. Both were charged with Cultivation of Marijuana, Possession of Paraphernalia, and Rental of Property for Manufacturing a Controlled Substance. Lane faces an additional charge of Violation of an Injunction for Protection; he was served with an Injunction for Protection on July 29, 2011 and removed from the property. He violated the order on July 30 after attempting to contact the petitioner and was found within 500 feet of the residence. Ms. Brannen also faces an additional charge of Violation of Probation. At the time of her arrest, she was on probation for the Sale of Marijuana. Both are held without bond. A Bushnell man, registered as a sex offender, was arrested last week for allegedly threatening to kill his mother. James Barronton, 33, was charged with aggravated battery. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond. Barronton was arrested on Wednesday, July 27, after the sheriffs office received a call that the woman had been threatened, according to a sheriffs office report. The victim, who was at a neighbors home, told deputies she and her son had an argument and he then threatened to kill her. The woman was visibly frightened and told deputies that Barronton had been physically abusive in the past, according to the report. The last incident happened a few days earlier, on July 25, when Barronton allegedly struck her several times with a belt and belt buckle and with a closed fist, according to the report. He had also reportedly chocked her in the past. Deputies saw a large bruise on the womans hip, back and waistline that was about seven inches long and three inches wide, the report states. A similar bruise was on the womans leg. A witness told deputies of past acts of battery including the beating. Barronton was apprehended and placed under arrest and taken to the county jail. He is a registered sex offender for crimes committed in Duval County, according to the report. Tuesday, July 26Carl T. Tolliver, 52, Webster, was arrested for driving while license suspended.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 4, 2011 Honing valuable knowledge, providing priceless experience I ts a busy weekend in Sumter County and at least two of this weeks events are all about preservation. On Saturday morning, the gates at Dade Battlefield Park will open to portray a military base of sorts. People from around the state and in some cases the nation, will be on hand to take part in the World War II Commemorative Day. Its a preservation of history as re-enactors don military uniforms from the era and exhibitors show off their collection of memorabilia, from communications systems and weapons to vehicles. Therell be living encampments, demonstrations and even items for sale. They will take the crowd back in time to experience life in the mid-20th century. The event is being held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the park. Later that day, as evening rolls in, the action moves to the Sumter County Fairgrounds in Bevilles Corner, where a collection of residents interested in the heritage of outdoors, hunting and fishing will gather. The National Wild Turkey Federation and the Sumter County Longbeards are involved with preserving woodlands and habitats, while providing sports enthusiasts with physical disabilities and youth a chance to experience the world of outdoors. The federation members will host their annual banquet, which serves as their main fundraiser. The fundraiser is what allows them fund the habitat preservations and give those experiences to the residents in the community. Each year the group hosts a massive fishing day at Richloam Fish Hatchery, which allows the children a chance to fish all day, learn archery, learn outdoor information and meet with representatives everyone from Smokey the Bear to game wardens and helicopter pilots. They teach the children archery and turkey calling and more. It can be a great thing to see groups working on preservation handing down heritage from generation to generation and holding tight to the memories from the past, as they share with future generations. Hands-on opportunities bring things to life providing valuable knowledge and priceless experience. Road congestion Congestion on our roads costs the U.S. an estimated $145 billion annually in wasted time, repairs and operating expenses. Thats an unnecessary burden that our economy is in no shape to carry. Yet, Washington seems to be toying with short-term transportation plans and cuts to transportation funding. Thats no way to remedy Americas gridlock. Instead, Congress should pass a long-term (at least six years), well-funded surface transportation bill that allows for real road, bridge, rail and transit improvements. New transportation projects will create thousands of new jobs in and of themselves, but thats small potatoes compared to how improved transportation and logistics efficiency will boost our overall economic picture. Our economy cant grow, if cars and trucks cant go. Tell your Congressman its time to get Florida and the nation rolling again! Sincerely,William A. DiRico, Jr. President Southeast Division Martin Marietta Materials Mitchell family expresses gratitude Its so hard to say goodbye to one that is loved so dearly. Loved ones who expressed their love in special ways have helped us bear this heavy loss. Thanks to those who visited, called, prayed, brought food, sent cards with gifts of love, sang a song, spoke words of comfort and all other acts of kindness during our bereavement. Our entire family is eternally grateful to all of you. It is friends like you who have helped us to continue on during our weakest moments. May God richly bless you for all the love you have expressed to our family. Please continue to pray with us, as we will do for your family. The family of Willie Mitchell his wife Birdie and their children: William, Jackie and Dee. To representatives in Washington, DC As a constituent residing in The Villages, I urge you to stop playing chicken with the debt ceiling negotiations, and adopt a plan that includes some revenue increases, as well as spending cuts. Much of the borrowing in the past decade has been done so as to allow the wealthiest taxpayers to reduce their taxes. That lost revenue was not compensated for with spending cuts. Consequently, most of the last 11 years saw a pattern of borrowing and spending that was irresponsible. Now Congress seems to be asking only those who benefited least from those tax cuts, to foot the bill, primarily though cuts in service and benefits, that the wealthiest dont use or need. It seems clear that the relatively small tax cuts awarded middle class families since 2001, will soon be offset by the costs of deficit reduction. Proposals offered by both parties target cuts almost entirely in a manner that would put the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of middle class taxpayers. Only the wealthy are asked for no sacrifice. The wealthiest taxpayers alone will end up with a net positive after the history of these tax cuts is written. Is it any wonder that we have surpassed the inequality levels in wealth and income that existed prior to the Great Depression? (The GINI coefficient, a measure of disparity of wealth, is currently well over 0.46, the highest it has ever been in US history ... thats not good BTW). The current crisis shows that this unwarranted transfer of wealth over the last decade was neither wise, nor prudent. The government has effectively asked middle class taxpayers to borrow money on their credit card, give it to Donald Trump, or Oprah Winfrey, and then pay it off without any help from The Donald, or Oprah. Thats just not fair. That is why I urge you to include at least some increase in revenue in arriving at a fair settlement with the president. You may argue that we cant tax the job creators, but that is a false argument. (1) The jobs they have been created lately have been mostly overseas, so our workforce has reaped no benefit from the jobs that have been created so far. (2) Corporations are sitting on huge stockpiles of cash. They could create jobs any time they want. But why would they, when the demand for goods and services is so weak? If you want job creation domestically, you need to find ways to increase demand. Oh, by the way, the cuts in government spending being offered will no doubt have just the opposite effect, by putting even more people out of work, and lowering demand for goods and services. You all were elected to get the country back to work, but instead you have adopted an austerity agenda that in all likelihood will slow the economy, or even set it back into recession. But thats an argument for another day. First you need to get the distraction of this debt limit fight off the table and get to work doing something for the citizenry you were elected to serve. So far, my perception is that the president has done all of the compromising in this fight, and the House Republicans have simply obstructed the process. Sincerely, Robert Rabinowitz The VillagesDealing with Gods factsPromises! I like to read the number one bestselling book in the world, the Bible. The Bible is our basic, instructions before leaving Earth. Promise 2 Chronicles 7:14: If my people, God promises he would heal their land. Gods promises and the natural laws of the land work hand in hand: Constitution of the United States, Bill of Rights, all laws spiritual and natural go together. Promise Psalm 72:1 for he shall deliver the needy when he crieth. The poor also, and him that hath no helper (no helper). The United States Constitution promises life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We owe our soldiers, elderly, children who are our future to keep these promises. I ask that we continue to pray for the United States, the world, for we are all connected to each other. We are only stronger when we are concerned and respectful to one another. The Bible speaks about our record, I/We make our record daily. God keeps accurate individual records. God is everywhere, all the time, knows all things at all times, and reveals all when he wants. My/Your record will be judged by God how I treat my neighbor. Who is my neighbor? My neighbor is anyone/everyone throughout the world. God does not see color, national origin, disability, creed, rich, poor, old, young or Ivy League, etc. God said everything he created was good! I deal with facts, Gods word, change not, God promises, change not. Cynthia D.

Anchoring Kids in Early Education Orlando for her 14th birthday. Thats where they met Idol families and got a chance to go backstage for hugs from the contestants including winner Scotty McCreery who is one of Hunters favorites. I surprised Hunter, my granddaughter, on her 14th birthday, said Davis, who explained she had no idea they would end up backstage. I dont think this birthday could ever be topped, Davis said. To our surprise we met Caseys (Abrams) aunt while waiting to be seated, then ended up sitting in front of her. While exchanging conversation during the show, she remembered she had two extra backstage passes and graciously offered them to us. They ended up chatting it up with the parents and relatives of some of the other contestants and when Casey Abramss mom had camera problems, Davis offered to send her photos. Everyone we met couldnt have been any nicer, we had the time of our lifes. Hunters big hug from Scotty McCreery brought tears to her eyes, and a smile to my heart, Jacob sang her a short happy birthday tune, notes Davis. She said her granddaughter even hit it off with singer Lauren Alainas mom and invited her to be a Facebook friend. Of course meeting them all was wonderful, but nothing could top Scotty in Hunters eyes, said Davis of her granddaughter. Davis had the gift selected as soon as she heard that one of the American Idol touring concerts was on Hunters birthday. I kept the secret for like two months. I had the tickets. Davis said Hunter had no idea, right up until they got in the elevator at the Sheraton in Orlando. Thats where an elderly gentleman asked if they were going to the American Idol concert. My grandmothers never lied to me, said Hunter, adding that as soon as they got out of the elevator, her grandmother had a big smile and fessed up. At that point, Hunter ran to their room and jumped on the bed, thrilled with her present. She was so excited, her grandmother said. In the meantime, as thrilled as she was by the gift itself, Hunter finds another aspect to the gift. I think it was very important to me because it was something from my grandmother. Of course, the best part of the evening was meeting Scotty. I think hes really sweet, hes really nice and he can sing very well and I think hell go far in his music, pointing how McCreery and Lauren Alaina are two of her favorites with singing abilities that she considers amazing. I love music, I could sing for hours. And while Hunter loves to sing and has tremendous respect for top talents, she has her heart set on a career as a veterinarian. This year will be her first at South Sumter High School where shes looking forward to spending time with friends and working to keep my grades up so I can be that person that I want to be when I grow up, she said. IDOL continued from Page 1 Bushnell: Dealing with park vandals Recent and reoccurring acts of vandalism at Kenny Dixon Sports Complex in Bushnell have resulted in city officials agreeing to set new operation hours at the sports facility. Last month, City Council members agreed to open the park at sunrise and close it at 10 p. m. unless an approved supervised function is allowed to continue past that time. City Councilman Dale Swain brought the issue before the board saying that substantial money and time has been invested in the park but vandalism is creating a problem. Swain suggested the park close at 10 p.m. unless a supervised function was in process. City Mayor Bill Spaude also asked the Bushnell Police Department to help lower vandalism potentials by making sure the gate and bathrooms are locked at the specified closing time. Bushnell Police Chief Joyce Wells knows all too well how much expense has been involved with the acts of vandalism. Most recently, a bathroom at the complex sustained substantial damage when someone either knowingly or accidently set a trash can on fire inside the bathroom. The incident happened on June 10 and resulted in the destruction of one toilet and charring throughout the restroom. Currently, the restroom is still closed until repairs can be made. Wells recently posted an open letter on the citys website asking residents to help monitor the park and report any suspicious actions. The list of vandalism acts at the park is extensive, including restroom doors removed, stolen signs, broken picnic tables, fence posts damaged, sinks and toilets have been broken, water coolers have been destroyed to name a few. Wells points out that it cost $1.4 million of grant funds to develop the complex and it costs the city about $200,000 a year to keep all city parks operational. The City of Bushnell and the Bushnell Police Department are asking all the good people to help catch the few bad ones that have nothing better to do than destroy our beautiful city, according to Wells. During the council meeting, Swain, along with others, suggested placing some responsibility on the coaches and leagues to make sure the premises get locked up appropriately when they leave the park. B OB R EICHMAN Editor BOB REICHMAN/Sumter County TimesBushnell Police Officer R. Boyher inspects the entrance to the bathroom at Kenny Dixon Sports Complex that was set ablaze. It is one of the recent acts of vandalism in the park that the city is attempting to curtail. The toilet was destroyed when someone either intentionally or accidentally set a trash can on fire.

P AGE 8S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 4, 2011 Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 322 Anglers Bass Fishing 296 Bass caught 342 Bass Released 323 Pan Fish Caught 421 Fishing reports and tournament results: We had no tournaments this past weekend, however we did have some folks catch some nice fish as described below: As I have promised in past articles, I am going to provide you with information regarding the Fishing Classic and Festival which follows: The Sumter County Fishing Classic and Festival promises to be the most anticipated wine and food festival event of the year in the Central Florida area. We will launch an event dedicated to bringing together excellence by offering, for the first time in the Central Florida Market, the highest caliber of fishing and a variety of outdoor cookie all to educate, entice, enlighten, and entertain festival goers. Guests will be awed by the beauty of Lake Panasoffkee revered for its backdrop of pristine water and wildlife. We will be inviting Sponsors to become a partner in this ground breaking event by accepting an official sponsorship role for the 1st annual Sumter County Fishing Classic and Festival. As a sponsor, your company will not only be able to tap into the many sales and marketing opportunities that this vent will encompass, but you will become a creating partner in the launch of a world class country festival from inception to full recognition! Our corporate partners will enjoy the benefits of being associated with a major event whose marketing goals will reach people locally, nationally and internationally. Additionally, sponsors have the prospect of receiving on-site unique on-site branding opportunities and a generous package of print, electronic and hospitality benefits. The Sumter County Fishing Classic and Festival will act as a conduit to help your company build longstanding relationships, thus expediting sales. Here is an update on progress made as of this date regarding the development of the Sumter County Fishing Classic and Festival scheduled for midMarch 2012. As you can imagine, I am in the initial planning stages, however I want to be clear that my objective is to bring in significant amounts of new business into Sumter County which means I will be doing significant advertising via television ads, out of town newspapers, magazines, radio commercials and so on. These things cost money big money. My plan is to come up with this money through a variety of ways which include (among others) Sponsorship dollars including a brand new bass boat for first place and significant cash prizes from 2nd to 5th place. Secondly we will be relying on registration fees as well. Although this is not cast in stone, I am considering registration fees of $300 per boat (2 persons) with payouts of 1st place new bass boat, 2nd place $5,000 cash, 3rd place $3,000 cash and 4th and 5th places will be sponsor based but will most likely be new boat motors, etc. Registration will be limited to 100 boats. As mentioned earlier, this event is not all about Tracys Point it is for the benefit of Sumter County so many businesses in Sumter County will be hearing from me in the near future so we can discuss how you might be able to help us pull this off. I view all of the fishing lodges as equals and my hope is that we will have (in addition to the 2 day bass tournament), live music and a cook off with each camp providing a different venue; i.e., one camp may decide to do a chili cook off, another perhaps a fish fry, another perhaps smoked pig hopefully you get my jest. Over the next several weeks I will be meeting with folks, finalizing the budget and revising media materials, soliciting sponsorship, et al. Weve got an excellent connection with Brighthouse and we are hopeful they will end up being a significant player in this spectacular event. I am working with a Tampa based graphics and media company in developing all of the media materials mentioned above and things are developing nicely and on schedule. Fishing activity for this past week is as follows. My apologies for not having more photos fishing was very good but I think my photographer fell asleep. Ken (The Big Worm) Sullenbuger and Rubin Perez were out fishing for the day and caught some size Bass before they had to go home to Tampa. Many admirers ask why they call Ken The Big worm thats because he uses a minimum of a 10 inch worm, often shifting to a 12 incher. He divulged several secrets of his, however Ken says the bigger the worm the bigger the catch. Ken and Rubin like to come up here to Tracys Point to get away from the city and relax for a few days. They say this is their getaway. In closing let me say that we are all so very fortunate to be living on a lake of national acclaim, particularly one that has had such a tremendous investment done to it to enhance the fishing even further. I say this only to emphasize that this weeks fishing forecast (yes, in the middle of the heat) is good Bass are hitting well on Rapalas as well as the good ole stand byes of June Bug and Watermelon plastics. In addition, the pan fish (Shell crackers and Bluegill) are still doing well on live worms. We hosted several commercials underwater several weeks ago and with no effort whatsoever we ended up right on top of a Shell cracker bed. You all will be seeing these films on Bay 9 news and other stations beginning November of this year it is literally awesome. Good luck and good fishin! Some Things Fishy at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Fishing Report, news and tournament results for week ending July 31 By Donna and Steve Lind Chad Williams was out fishing with his son and caught this nice Bass, he caught this over at Colemans Landing on a June bug worm. Tyler Cain and Jacob Filer with some nice Bluegill and Shell crackers that they caught this week mid lake directly east of the outlet, they were fishing with big red worms. Ken (The Big Worm) Sullenbuger and Rubin Perez were out fishing for the day and caught some size Bass before they had to go home to Tampa. Lemar and T.J. Miller were out on the lake for some father and son time together. These two men like to go out fishing to relax and spend some father and son time to talk about life and fishing. Busy summer at center Bushnell Police Chief Joyce Wells chats with the kids during one of the presentations. Shown right to left are: Jesse Palmer, Labreeska Hinton and Elizabeth Franz, with Weston MacMullen in the background. Summers wrapping up for teachers, parents and students, but not before a little summer fun. Members of the Sumter County Youth Center spent the warmer months at the facility and on the road. The children did everything from bowling and roller skating to learning from local law enforcement. They had visits from at least two different agencies the Sumter County Sheriffs Department and Bushnell Police Department. Center director Della Boushley said they want the children exposed to law enforcement so they become comfortable and understand that they (officers) are the good guys. Boushley said they split the children into groups, by age, and then provide a number of summer activities. The fun includes arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor recreation and water days. This year they had six different presentations, including two from Sumter Electric Cooperative (one on conservation and another on safety). The center also hosts a math party and helps the children work on reading. On Friday, Aug. 5, the center will get 20 refurbished computers from the Villages Computer Club, Boushley said. The group already provided computers for the Wildwood center, which the center children can use for a new program designed to teach through sports from Kids College and their homework help program. The children also had the experience of 4-H education. Boushley said representatives were there through the summer. The children hatched eggs and did several science experiments. The program funding is provided through various sources, including an on-site thrift shop for the public. Boushley and the staff are currently planning their in-school season and taking sign-ups for after-school youth for both the Wildwood and Bushnell locations. For more information about the center or registration information, call 352-568-8722. Limbo? Just for fun. John Oelkers shows how its done. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer

Offer expires 8/31/11 Ask for code: mo Receive 4 Weeks Free $25.00* Critter chatter Abandoning an animal is a crime A bandoning an animal is illegal in the state of Florida. Florida State statue #828.13 section 1(3) specifically states, abandons any animal in a street, road, or public place without providing for the care, sustenance, protection, and shelter of such animal is guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree The crime can be punished by a fine up to $5,000. Sadly, hundreds of animals are still abandoned throughout the state every day. Some are left in a home or yard where the family has moved away. They are left to starve with no food or water. Some are abandoned on the side of a country road or at a busy intersection. And others are left on doorways or in parking lots at veterinarian offices. Many local veterinarians have come to work in the morning, only to find animals left in either crates, tied up to their fence, or just running loose on their property. The local veterinarian is not a shelter and they cannot take in every animal that is abandoned on their property. The staff at Bushnell Animal Hospital has seen firsthand, the problems of animals abandoned at their facility: We have had cats left in a crate that was not secured properly and were unfortunately killed in traffic. Or, Our facility may be closed for vacation and we would never know if an animal was left here. It could be left here for days, in the heat, with no food or water. The American Heritage Dictionarys definition of abandoned is deserted or forsaken, to withdraw ones support or help from. If you cannot care for your pet or farm animal anymore, there are steps you must take to legally surrender that animal. You do have some choices on how to legally surrender an animal. 1. The county has an Animal Control facility located in Lake Panasoffkee. Animals that can no longer be cared for, or no longer wanted, can be brought to Animal Control. If you need assistance, their phone number is: 793-1470. 2. The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County has limited space available, but may be able to assist you with the surrender. Their phone number is: 793-9117. Both options are the legal way to surrender your animal. Not only are these options legal, but they are the humane way to leave an animal behind. The animal will be in a secure place and will be provided with food and water. It is the very least that should be offered to a surrendered animal. Scarlett is a five-year-old Chihuahua mix, weighing between 12 and 14 pounds. She is very well behaved and would be the perfect dog in a quiet adult home. Scarlett enjoys listening to her masters voice, sunbathing, taking naps and being a couch potato. Leisurely walks are fun too! Routine and consistancy work well with Scarlett. She has a special diet need Halo Stew is the only food she can eat. If you would like to adopt Scarlett, call the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County at 352-793-9117 or email to email@example.com.
