During the upcoming weeks, the Sumter County Times will publish information about each of the murders. Clerk ignores would-be robber Howell retires after 36 years Back in the 1970s, Sandee Dixon (now Howell) had just finished high school with some business class certification. When at 17 she hadnt found a job yet, her farmer dad stepped in. He took her out to the pepper and cucumber fields for a little incentive. After a few days of that I got really busy trying to find a job, she said with humor, pointing out that she was thinking along the lines of something with air conditioning. And she got it. Her first job was with local attorney Jack Johnson. In private practice, he did some public defender work as well. That was 1973, the same year she got her experience working in the pepper fields. But by 1975, she had found that career job air conditioning included. She went to work for Sumter County. Her first job was for Clerk of the Court T. Burton Marsh. At that time, the county didnt have a county administrator, but rather the clerk of the circuit court performed the administration services, along with the finances, she said. The young woman took on the role of clerk, but eventually worked herself into the An unusual tattoo on his upper bicep helped investigators learn the identity of the body of man they found lying in woods in Croom-a-Coochee back in 2007, but nothing has led officials to an arrest in the case. The body of 20-yearold Jaime OrtizMorales was discovered about 6 a.m. on Sept. 17 by a man who told police he was looking at a wooded lot he was considering buying. He and two others were walking in a wooded area off County Road 656 G, about 150 yards from the road, when they noticed buzzards flying nearby. They observed legs and what appeared to be a deceased male lying in the clearing. They immediately went to the Croom-aCoochee fire department and called 911, according to sheriffs office accounts. At the time of the discovery, the body was so badly decomposed that investigators did not know the cause of death until after an autopsy had been performed. Investigators believe Ortiz-Morales was murdered two or three days before his body was found. The cause of death was determined to be homicide as a result of multiple gunshot wounds. Ortiz-Morales was an illegal alien without any family in the area, which made it difficult for police to positively identify him, according to sheriffs office reports. But photographs from Pasco County police led to identifying the victim. Pasco authorities had photos of OrtizMorales because he was a witness to a murder there in 2006, according to reports. Investigators think he had been living in Pasco County. Anyone with information in the case should contact sheriffs Major Garry Brannen at 793-0222. B OB R EICHMAN Editor The would-be robber demanded money. The convenience store clerk was not impressed, nor was she cooperative. A lone armed gunman attempted to rob the Kangaroo Express convenience store, 9985 U.S. 301, north of Wildwood last Saturday, Aug. 20, according to a sheriffs office report. The attempted robbery happened about 8:30 p.m. when the masked suspect entered the store dressed in black or dark-colored clothing, according to the report. The man demanded that the store cashier, who was stocking shelves at the time, give him money, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. Just give it to me, the suspect reportedly demanded of the clerk. But instead of complying with the mans demand, instead, the clerk did not respond and continued stocking shelves, Caruthers said He pointed a handgun at her and she still didnt respond. The gunman reportedly then said, Youre not going to give it to me? Still no response from the clerk she just stared at him, according to Caruthers. The clerk then called for a co-worker who was in a backroom. The suspect then fled from the store. The suspect is described B OB R EICHMAN Editor Rescued cats, dogs now ready for adoption L ooking for the perfect pet? The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County may have the answer, and at a reduced adoption cost. Until the end of August, the organization is offering special adoption rates for dogs and cats. Adoption application requests for animals must be received no later than Aug. 31 to qualify for the special rates. The discount started last weekend during the Big Adoption Day, on Aug. 20. The animals available for adoption were rescued from a south Sumter home in July when the owner of the pets contacted the Humane SocietySPCA of Sumter County requesting assistance because the pets became too much for the family to deal with. Altogether, 18 dogs and 25 cats were removed from the home. The animals had not been available for adoption until last weekend because they were being spayed or neutered and receiving medical attention and required vaccinations. These animals have blossomed from the one-on-one time with volunteers, said Claudia Labbe, organization representative. They have been receiving not only basic handling education and manners but lots of love and affection. The special adoption rates that will apply through August are: dogs over 35 pounds are $65, other dogs and puppies are $125. Adult cats (over one year) are $40 and kittens are $80. The HS/SPCA does not do "sameBOB REICHMAN/Sumter County TimesThis puppy (pictured a month ago on the front page of the Sumter County Times) is now old enough and available for adoption along with two other littermates and numerous other dogs and cats that were removed from a home in south Sumter County when the family could no longer care for the pets. B OB R EICHMAN Editor The body of Jaime Ortiz-Morales was found in Croom woods. An unusual tatto helped investigators identify the man.

If you are or know of someone who wishes to adopt one or more of these dogs or cats, come by and make a connection. Please help these loving animals get a chance at a loving home, Labbe said.

The Florida Highway Patrol will participate in the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign through Labor Day. The Patrol will join thousands of other law enforcement and highway safety agencies across the nation through Sept. 5 to reduce the number of impaired drivers on Floridas roadways in an effort to save lives. Drunk driving is simply not worth the risk. Not only do you risk killing yourself or someone else, but also the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for impaired driving can be significant, said FHP Director, Colonel David Brierton. Violators often face jail time, the loss of their driver license, higher insurance rates, attorney fees, time away from work and dozens of other expenses. Do not take the chance. Our troopers will pull you over if you do not drive sober. The campaign encompasses the Labor Day holiday weekend, which begins Sept. 2. The holiday caps off the summer season for many, and historically travel increases with people driving to celebrate with friends and family. All uniformed FHP personnel, including those normally assigned to administrative duties, will patrol interstates and other major state roads during the four-day holiday period. FHP Auxiliary troopers also will volunteer to augment the Patrol this weekend. The Patrol aims to increase its presence throughout Florida in an effort to deter traffic violations and to enhance services to motorists who break down while traveling or who need other assistance. Please remember to dial *FHP (*347) from your cell phone to contact FHP to report an aggressive or impaired driver or to request roadside assistance. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Police report A Webster man ended up in jail after he reportedly broke into his former girlfriends home in Bushnell, shoved her during an argument and then took jewelry he had given to her. Branden Vance Mauldin, 21, was arrested Aug. 19 for burglary, battery and larceny. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $7,500. Mauldin waited until his former girlfriends mother went to work, about 6 a.m., and then entered her home through an open garage door, according to a sheriffs office report. The victim told investigators that when she woke up, Mauldin was standing in her bedroom. Although they had never lived together, they dated for about two years. Mauldin reportedly started yelling and demanding that the victim return jewelry he had purchased for her during their relationship. He became upset when the victim would not talk to him and he grabbed her arms and put her back on the bed so she would listen to him, according to the report. Mauldin told deputies he took the jewelry after the victim said she had no intention of renewing their relationship and then left the residence.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 25, 2011 Sheriffs drug sweep was valuable operation W hile the sheriffs recent Summer Sweep operation had its problems with some erroneous charges being filed against some of the arrest suspects, the three-month-operation to sweep crime from the streets of Sumter County was a very valuable one. While some people were concerned about wrong charges that were initially made public, the benefits of this operation far outweigh the mistake. Some of the arrests in the sweep were actually the result of residents contacting the sheriffs office because of suspicious activities they saw in their neighborhoods. During a press conference about the sweep, Sheriff Bill Farmer and staff members voiced praise for the support of local residents who spoke up about concerns in their neighborhoods. Those residents may have expected quick results from their calls, but investigations had to be conducted and evidence of illegal activity had to be compiled before arrests could finally be made. The amount of arrests over the three-month period was staggering to some people. In Lake Panasoffkee, where many of the arrests were made, people in the community were surprised by law enforcements visibility during the operation. Farmer and his staff deserve considerable praise for the success of this operation even if it did come with a few mistakes. Just the facts MaamDo you remember Sgt. Joe Friday from Dragnet and his tagline Just the facts maam? President Obama and his cohorts keep telling us that we need to raise taxes on only some of the American people in order to reduce the deficit. Remember, Democrats never suggest we balanced the budget, they only suggest we reduce the deficit. Lets see what happens when we apply Joe Fridays investigative approach to the rhetoric being put forth by the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats. Uncontroverted fact number one: in January 2007, Nancy Pelosi became speaker of the House and Harry Reid became the Senate majority leader. Uncontroverted fact number two: In January 2009 Barack Hussein Obama became the president, thereby giving the Democrats control of both the Executive and Legislative branches of the federal government. Uncontroverted fact number three: The Democrats were not shy about using their majorities in Congress to pass what really mattered to them. For example, Obama care passed without input or support from Republicans and Speaker Pelosi pushed through the infamous cap and trade legislation. Uncontroverted fact number four: Although the Democrats control both the House and Senate during both the 110th and 111th sessions of Congress, it was not until the final days of the 111th Congress that tax legislation was voted on. After the 2010 midterm elections, in a lame-duck session, Congress passed the Tax Relief Act of 2010. This legislation, signed by Pres. Obama on Dec. 12, 2010, actually extended the socalled Bush Tax Cuts through 2012. It seems the Democrats like to talk about raising taxes but when they had the majority in both the House and the Senate they failed to act. Since the leaders of the Democrat-controlled Congress did not have the will to raise taxes, and Democrats never want to reduce spending, their leadership chose the path of least resistance; they borrowed more money. The Obama Administration and Congressional Democrat are now faced with a dilemma; they refuse to reduce spending on entitlement programs and now they lack not only the will but the votes to raise taxes. What can they do? Its easier than you might think. In lock step, the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats decided to blame Americas economic plight on the fiscal conservative right. Thats right; they decided to place the blame on the Tea Party! So, in the next few months when youre out and about and hear someone spout the latest Democrat excuse for Americas financial troubles; dont let them forget who created the mess. It was the Obama Administration, Pelosi and Reid, who spent the money that America had to borrow. Now Republicans have to reverse the pattern and clean up the mess. Look them right in the eye and your best Jack Webb voice, give them the facts, just the facts. Richard L Cole, Jr. The VillagesAttention deficit disorder or bad manners? When President Barak H. Obama ordered a lockout of duly elected sworn-in Congress people from attending the Obamacare health voting odyssey, while posting a sergeant-atarms enforcer to keep the duly elected public officials from presenting its constituency that action was groundbreaking. President Obama then crisscrossed U.S.A. extolling the virtues of a law no one read. Is that attention deficit disorder? Vice President Joe Biden called American voters terrorists. Is that bad manners? Who has the power? It is in the hands of every voter. U.S.A. is the greatest nation civilization has ever produced; a work in progress. And we vote listen to us stop name-calling we, the people, have the power. We will vote at the polls. It is an American tradition. Ruthie Kelly The VillagesFlorida Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten, VPK Many people have heard this term but are unaware of what it means and that it could possibly benefit them. In 2005, Governor Jeb Bush signed a law that gives every four year old in the state of Florida the opportunity to go to preschool for free. The VPK legislation was to better prepare all children entering kindergarten and give them a strong foundation for future success. Because of the VPK legislation, children that would otherwise have been unable to attend a preschool program are now able to attend the quality preschool of their choice. The VPK program is set up so that a child may attend during the school year before they begin kindergarten or during the summer before they begin kindergarten. The school year program is 540 hours and the summer program is 300 hours. A child may attend either one of these sessions, but not both. The teacher to child ratio is smaller in this program than in a standard preschool. There may be 1 teacher for every 10 students with the number of children per classroom not to exceed 18 in the school year program and not to exceed 10 in the summer program. All teachers in the VPK classroom must have a minimum of a child development associate or bachelors degree in early childhood or related fields. These higher standards ensure that each child is given the highest quality education that they can possibly receive. The VPK classroom brings a lot of emphasis to early language and literacy. This is done through many different activities in the classroom including reading, writing and social skills. However, all areas of learning are addressed. All curriculums must include the following areas; physical health, approaches to learning, social and emotional development, language and communication, cognitive development and general knowledge, motor development, and character development. All programs success rates are available to the public on the Florida Department of Education VPK Readiness Rates website. There have been many changes to the program over the last 7 years, one thing which has not changed has been Floridas continued investment in the growth of our states future leaders. Angela M.

OPINIONS INVITED Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor Thanks Sheriff Farmer!I would like to say thank you to Sheriff Bill Farmer, the men and women of the Sumter County Sheriffs office and the FDLE for the recent Operation Summer Sweep. This operation has put over 30 people that were up to no good out of business so to speak. The vast majority of these arrested are charged with some type of illegal drug distribution in our county and we are all a little safer tonight because of the efforts of the Sumter County Sheriff and FDLE. I see that a few of these people that were arrested in this roundup were charged with selling alcohol to people under the age of 21. I gather from reading the editors letter last week that several of these people were reported by the Sheriffs department originally as being charged with some type of drug charge along with the alcohol charges, and then the next day the sheriff department corrected the error and released an updated list of the charges against the people. I would think from reading the letter from the editor that this has put a dark cloud over the entire operation and would have some type of major effect on the final outcome of the accused; possibly some of those that are charged with serious crimes might go free or someone was wrongly convicted due to a clerical error? I think that the fact that several of these people were originally listed as being charged with other offenses is unfortunate and I was glad to see that the sheriffs office did release a revised list of the charges as soon as it was discovered. But to suggest that a small computer error has somehow overshadowed the hard work of so many is ridiculous. First of all the charge of selling alcohol to someone under 21 years of age might seem like a rather small crime when compared to some of the other drug charges in this case, but if we look at the results of selling alcohol to underage youths this crime takes on a more sinister appearance. The NIAAA Stats say that 5,000 people under the age of 21 are killed each year in the United States due to underage drinking. This number includes 1,900 killed in car crashes, 1,600 killed in homicides, and 300 suicides. This number does not include the thousands of injuries to those less than 21 years old; it does not include the deaths and injuries of those over 21 years old that are affected by the underage drinking. It is important to realize that all these people are only charged at this point, not convicted. This also speaks to the relevance of the computer or clerical error. No one was actually charged with the wrong crime as far as we know. It is unfortunate that there was a clerical error or computer error that listed additional charges against several of these individuals, but if they were not committing a crime in the first place they would not have been there to have been affected by this error. I for one am extremely proud and grateful to Sheriff Farmer, the Sumter County Sheriffs Department, and the FDLE for the three months worth of work that they did in order to rid us of some of this illegal activity. I am Proud to say that I voted for Sheriff Farmer, and will do so again if the opportunity comes. If any of these people are innocent of the charges filed against them they are free to pursue any option they feel is justified. Until then, great job Sheriff Farmer and friends!

Aarionshay Gordon and Danielle Cole are members of WOW Women of Wildwood. Under the leadership of teacher and club sponsor Twila Haeser, the teens spent some of their summer vacation at a three-day conference in Tampa at Eckerd College for Leadership. The three-day event was sponsored by HOBY (Hugh OBrian Youth Leadership). HOBY was founded in 1958 and created to inspire and develop the global community of youth in leadership, service and innovation. Haeser is a teacher at Wildwood Middle High School and is club sponsor for the all female WOW sorority. This was a great experience for the girls. They stayed in dorms and roomed with girls from other schools, Haeser said, adding that she and her husband drove the girls to the event. They were so excited! At the conference they attended seminars and workshops about leadership, education and healthy living. They also participated in a community service project where they made blankets for children that were hospitalized. I am very proud that they had the opportunity to attend. Haeser said she spoke with the girls during the conference and afterwards and they absolutely loved it. Aarionshay Gordon and Danielle Cole The public will have an opportunity to comment about the proposed county budget for the upcoming 2011-12 fiscal year during two upcoming public hearings. The first hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12, at the Sumter County Government Complex, 910 N. Main St., Bushnell. The final hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 26, in the Parlor Room of Colony Cottage Recreation Center, 510 Colony Blvd., The Villages. The budget does not become final until county commissioners approve it at both public hearings. This years proposed budget includes a recommended tentative millage rate of 6.32 mils. This is the seventh year in a row the county has been able to prepare a budget at or below the projected calculated roll-back rate and thereby meeting the legal test of no tax increase, according to County Administrator Bradley Arnold. Arnold attributes the countys ability to retain the same tax rate to the fiscal responsibility Sumter County showed in recent years as well as the continued growth due to the residential and commercial construction focused in or around The Villages. The proposed budget provides the same level of county services with a few exceptions: Section 8 Housing services will be performed by Citrus County; the State Housing Improvement Program has been eliminated, Cherry Lake Park has been eliminated and truancy services were eliminated because the School Board did not provide required funding, according to Arnold. Increased or enhanced services for the upcoming year include: ambulance services, fire and emergency medical services, mosquito control services and sheriffs office traffic operations. The fiscal year budget takes effect on Oct. 1, and ends Sept. 30, 2012.

Ray will be out again in September. I may include an article on gator hunting in the near future, however, in the interim as an FYI, Lake Panasoffkee has an abundance of gators and while the FWC typically only issues two lottery tickets for gator permits for Lake Panasoffkee, the application process typically takes place during June and, if youre lucky enough to be drawn, you will be issued two tags good for two gators. Ray will be back to Tracys Point in a couple of weeks to try and fill his second tag. Ray is good buddies with the famous Mark Baker and his Son in Law Dusty who made the newspapers a few years back with a monster 12 footer! The following is the continuation of a series on bass fishing: Prior to reading this article, please keep in mind that we are working hard to finalize the details of the Sumter County Bass fishing tournament scheduled for mid March of 2012. At the suggestion of Jim Veal of Pana Vista I am seriously contemplating moving the tournament date to mid April to not disrupt the spawn. In any event, we at Tracys Point take conservation seriously and would never schedule a tournament during a time that we feel would be deleterious to the health of the bass. I will keep everyone posted regarding the actual date weve still got of a year left prior to the tournament so there is plenty of time. Where to find the Largemouth Bass Finding Largemouth Bass in Spring In the spring as the water temperature starts to rise the bass will start heading into shallower water to begin spawning. So during this pre-spawn period look for the bass to be just outside of their spawning grounds. As the temperature rises the bass will move into the spawning area... After a cold front the fish will move back out into deeper water. Bass will start their feeding binge as the water reaches the temperature of about 55 degrees F. Baitfish are scarce so the bass will spend most of their time cruising through shallow water in search of food. When the water temp reaches 70 degrees F. it signals the post-spawn period and the resumption of good fishing. The bass will feed heavily in the shallow waters but spend most of the day in the deeper water.Finding Largemouth Bass in Summer Strong sunlight and warm temperatures may force the bass out of the shallower water and into the deeps. The bass will form loose schools around deep water structure. And then come into the shallows very early and very late in the day to feed. But due to the abundance of small bait fish in the shallows the feeding time is usually very short. Water temperature above 80 degrees F. will push the bass in very deep water. But in fertile lakes low oxygen levels in the depths prevent bass from going deeper. They must remain in the shallower water but become listless and very difficult to catch. Finding Largemouth Bass in Reservoirs and Natural Lakes Look for the bass to be heading into the shallower water in the back ends of coves, the edges of creek channels, around shoreline cover such as brush, sunken logs, and weeds. Look for areas with flooded timbers extending far out from the shore. This indicates a wide shoal that warms quickly and attracts many spawners. Search for sheltered bays that warm faster that the open areas of the lake. An ideal bay to fish would be one that is fairly shallow, secluded with high banks to protect it from the cool spring winds but allows the sunlight to warm the water quickly and has some cover such as flooded brush or timbers. Look around areas that have floating vegetation, or the presence of lily pads that are starting to break the surface of the water. Try out the areas with emergent vegetation such as bullrushes, and Maidencane these make excellent cover for spawning bass. Finding Largemouth Bass in Summer Fish the edges of deeper water dropoffs, the edges and humps of underwater (sunken) islands, the edges of deep water weed beds. Try just off the edge of points of land that jut out into the water. These areas usually indicate a quick drop off, and warm water bass will lay in the deeper water and in the early morning and late afternoon make a quick tour through the shallower water in these areas. The outside bends of creek channels will usually hold more bass than inside turns or straight sections of the channel. Brushy flats serve as feeding areas. Flats with deep holes and abundant cover are better than large flats with uniform depth and little cover. Fish around docks or piers close to deep water that have an abundance of weeds nearby. Be sure to check out the slop bays (small bays or coves with alot of floating vegetation). Finding Largemouth Bass in Rivers and Backwaters A highly overlooked bass fishery is North Americas river systems. Try fishing the backwaters of some of your neighboring rivers such as the Withlacoochee which connects to the outlet on the West side of Lake Panasoffkee adjacent to Pana Vista Lodge. Look for chutes between islands off of the main river channel that empty into large pools. Try fishing around bridges, they offer shade and cover. Bass will often hold along the edges of abutments near shore and around pilings in midstream. Look for rocky points of land that jut out into a small pool out of the current of the river or backwater. Shady overhangs of trees hanging over the water is an excellent place to find a waiting bass. Make sure to try fishing close to riprap, these large rocks hold many baitfish and crayfish that the bass feeds upon. Stump fields, weedy shallows, and fallen trees all provide excellent cover, and should never be overlooked. Look for bass in the slack water on both sides of a spillway or damn where it empties into the main stream. Any type of structure in close to riffles in a small creek can provide ample cover for a bass waiting for an easy meal. Just be careful and mindful that there are an abundance of rocks on the outlet leading to the Withlacoochee River most of these are on the outer edges of the outlet but unless you are familiar with the outlet you just never know the ticket is wake speed or less and fish along the way. Ive found Rapala to be an excellent lure on the outlet.

Robinson, 53, is walking with the hope of seeing Brother to Brother Day become an annual, national day of celebration to honor everyone in uniform, including military, police, firefighters and other emergency rescue personnel. We need to create a day of national sacrifice, he said, adding that there is no day that currently recognizes all the brothers and sisters, in all uniforms. He points out hes travelled more in Florida than in the other states, 500 miles so far. He stopped in Tallahassee first, but felt that to get the word out he would have to go further. Hes been to Gainesville, Flagler. Ft. Pierce, Okeechobee, Lake Placid and most recently Sumter. He relies on donations and the support of veterans organizations to help him get across all 50 states. As he stops in each community, hes asking governments to create a proclamation declaring Brother to Brother Day. He received a proclamation from Bushnell Mayor Bill Spaude last Thursday. Before ever reaching Florida, he had already collected dozens of proclamations from various governments across the United States, including cities in the Carolinas, New York, Rhode Island, New England and Illinois. Robinson said he chose Sept. 10 as the date because it was the eve of destruction. The day prior to 9-11 and the attack on America when so many lives were lost. He said he was sparked by the idea after walking from his home in Delmont, Pa., to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington, Va. He spent three nights in Bushnell last week. VFW Post 10137 funded his stay for two of those three nights and Robinson paid for the third night. He often relies on veteran organizations to leapfrog him from place to place as well. Robinson served as a United States Marine stationed for part of his tour in Japan. Robinson has photos of the proclamations and of his travels on his Facebook.

job of assistant county administrator. She spent 36 years serving Sumter County before retiring in July of this year. She experienced plenty of change in both the county and her own life. Shes since gotten married to Bushnell resident Mike Howell, become a mom and is now a grandmother. Back at the office, a lot of technology has occurred since I started, she said She was hired to take the place of retiring clerk Edith Seese whose primary job duty was to take minutes for the County Commission board meetings. Seese actually typed the minutes with carbon paper and I think she made seven copies. When she made a mistake she had to erase seven copies, Howell said. That was about the most intimidating part of the job for her back then. Shes lived and worked through a mimeograph machine, a bookkeeping machine and electric erasers. It was noisy and messy, she said of the mimeograph machine used to copy documents with ink and stencils. Eventually the county did purchase a Xerox copy machine, but even then it was one machine for all the offices. She recalls their first fax machine. It was given to the county by state emergency management. It literally sat there for a year, unused because no one else had one. No one could send them anything and there was nobody to send it to, she said with humor. She recalls an electric eraser. You plug it in and it would spin around, she said. In her work with the county, Howell began to develop personnel files, helped with accounting and general administration. Working in that position, taking the minutes, I got to learn about county government. The Board of County Commissioners is the hub for county government. Because of the budget, she was also exposed to the workings of the constitutional officers (clerk, tax collector, supervisor of elections and property appraiser) She said you learn a bit about all of it in school, but if its not really your focus, you dont get to know the nuts and bolts of how county government works. In the early 1980s the county added an actual county administrator position which was filled by Bernard Dew. He was also employed by the clerks office and was already experienced at working directly with the commissioners. Then I was selected to start the office with Bernard, she said, adding that she was extremely happy about that opportunity. I really liked working with Bernard. Everything just kind of grew from that point. She said when youre handling things from A to Z as growth occurs, naturally youll grow along with it. While Howell loves the time she has to devote to family now, she misses her job too. I would like to extend my appreciation to both county administrators I reported to, she said, naming Bernard Dew and current County Administrator Bradley Arnold, as well as former County Attorney Randall Thornton, for the support provided to me through my career.S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 25, 2011, P AGE 13 SAR003086 TO PLACE A CLASSIFIED AD, CALL TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 MONDAY-FRIDAY 9:00 AM-4 PM (DEADLINE 11:00 AM TUESDAY) CLASSIFIEDS CANCELLATIONSAdvertisements may be canceled as soon as results are obtained.

Going back in time, Mrs. Lyles said, Markee had just started pre-k and she loved it. As a matter of fact, she loved it so much she couldnt understand why she couldnt go on Saturdays and Sundays. That was last year and she began coming home with colds and swollen lymph nodes. She went to two different hospitals before being taken to St. Josephs Hospital in April. Thats when she was diagnosed with leukemia, according to family friend Jennifer Cramer. As Markeee battles the disease, She overcomes anything that goes on with her. It doesnt matter whats going on in her life, Markees okay, she said. She refers to Markee as a little mama saying she loves to entertain other children and babies. Mrs. Lyles recalled how the family felt when Markee was first diagnosed. At first we were scared. We didnt know what to tell her. When they went to the hospital, she told Markee the illness was a nasty bug that goes through your blood. Thats why were here, so we can get rid of it. Okay Mom, Markee responded. That was the end of it. When her hair began falling out she didnt understand. But Mrs. Lyles told her there were pretty wigs and hats and that bald is beautiful. Yeah! Markee yelled in the background as her mom shared their story. She takes everything in and goes on every day. Through the battle, Markee is dealing with some other medical issues, including seizures and diabetes and other things that are the result of medication, her mom said. There was a six-week period where Markee wasnt herself, she never smiled, slept constantly and had no interest in anything even when they took her to the Disney store. But once they put a feeding tube in, Markee was back to her old self and full of energy. Shes truly had a rough road, but even with everything shes gone through, she still walks around with a smile on her face, her mom said. Markee is currently dealing with chemotherapy treatments and will soon be taking physical therapy. As Nicki and John Lyles watch their baby go through so much, they also have to calculate finances and keep things going at home. Mrs. Lyles points out that the lack of work in her husbands construction field and doing battle with the disease has affected family finances. She said her husband is lucky to get 40 hours a week right now and theyre struggling to pay their mortgage, car and electric bills. They do get assistance with Markees needs, but theres a $2,500-a-month deductible. She said Markees medicine is $3,000 a month, which is covered by Medicaid, so it wipes out the deductible, but there are others costs including travel expenses for getting Markee to and from medical treatments. And if one need didnt cancel out the other, they would have the deductible to pay as well. Mrs. Cramer and her husband James are making their own efforts to help the Lyles family. They said theyve seen how difficult it is, so they decided to put together a fundraiser. Mr. Cramer met with a friend of his in Dade City who owns Triple-S Golf Ranch. The owner was willing to host a golf tournament. The Cramers have combined a number of events to help the family. Theyre selling $5 raffle tickets for a shotgun, hosting the golf tournament and a dinner this Saturday, Aug. 28. The tournament begins with registration at 8 a.m. and a shotgun tee-off at 9 a.m. The entry fee is $160 per 4person team. The fee includes golf with cart, prizes and dinner. First, second, third place will earn prizes, as well as several other shots. Theyre also hosting the dinner that day, which is not only for the golfers, but open to the public. Dinner is included for golfers and available for $10 per meal to others. Dinner is at the Moose Lodge in Dade City, where there will also be an auction open to the public. Donations can be made to Suncoast Federal Credit Union. The donation can be made to any branch, but it must include the information acct. #4381716. For more information call Mrs. Cramer at 352-303-1505. As for Markee, since being diagnosed shes made her own big plans. She plans to grow up and become a pediatric doctor or nurse. She wants to be like the ones that have taken care of her, her mom said. The whole road has been hard. Sitting back knowing that theres nothing in the world I can do to make it better. A mom is supposed to be able to kiss the boo-boo and make it better and I cant do that. Her hope is that others dont take their children for granted and dont wait to seek medical help if they arent satisfied with the answers. Speak up, we have to be their voice, Mrs. Lyles said of pursuing a diagnosis. She said she was told it was viral infections and sinus infections, but when she was finally diagnosed, learned that Markee had had leukemia for months. I was in awe. I keep Markee in a bubble or try to. I do everything that Im supposed to, Mrs. Lyles said. She questioned the results, wondering if they had gotten someone elses. I really didnt know what to think, but she did question herself. Oh my God what did I do wrong? What have I done that I wasnt supposed to do and what didnt I do that I was supposed to do? But her mother and mother-in-law were her support there, insuring her that she was a great mom and there was nothing she could have done to stop it. Its like a bad dream youre walking around with and theres this black cloud on top of you. As for her wishes, Markee wants a five-day stay at Disney in order to meet all the princesses and a chance to meet Selena Gomez. She also has a very healthy imagination, telling her mom that teen heartthrob and singer Justin Bieber was her boyfriend. But theyve broken up twice and now theyre through.

Wildwood has 30 on the varsity team. There are 20 on the JV squad. This is the first time the Wildcats will have a JV squad in three years. LaBranche is shy about making predictions.

Last year, Matt LaBranche was the interim head football coach at Wildwood High School and just hoping for a chance to hold onto his job. The Wildcats were 6-4 last year and he now has the permanent job. Surprisingly, LaBranche isnt feeling a difference in this year. I guess it feels the same way, he said. I was just going to do the best job I could and go from there. Wildwood is now in a new district. Its a Class 1A district and includes the Villages, Pierson-Taylor and Crescent City. The Wildcats have played the Villages many times. Two years ago, Wildwood also played Pierson-Taylor and Crescent City. Wildwood will play Trinity Christian Deltona at home 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25. That will be their kickoff classic. They open with South Sumter on Sept. 2 at Wildwood. They beat South Sumter for the first time in years in 2010. The score was 14-10. This contest is for bragging rights in Sumter County and is very important to the players. I think its obviously a great game to see where we are at, LaBranche said. I think they are really concentrating on the district. We had three losses in the district last year. The quarterback is senior Sean Hensley, a gifted athlete who is likely to earn himself a college scholarship this year. He took over the job from his brother, Scott. Both transferred from the Villages a few years ago. He took every snap from center last year, LaBranche said. He is a jack-ofall-trades. He can kick, throw, run and he can play free safety for us. Last year, as he went, the team went. We are hoping there will be others who can step up. Wildwood will run multiple offensive sets including two wings and a fullback. They dont normally run a tight end. At running backs are Drew Terry (Sr.), Elliot West (Sr.), Jalen Gooden (Jr.) and Kendrick Brown (Sop.). These can play fullback or wingback. Terry is 5-6 and weighs 200. He is one of the strongest on the team. At wide receiver are Shawn Aten (Sr.) and Donte Johnson (Soph.) Center will be Denzell Williams (Sr.). cock (Jr.) and Devon Papenheim (Soph.), Ians younger brother. Returning Dalton Hofecker, a senior, is injured. Centers will be seniors Dalton Moss and Reid Sarno. Guards will be Dillon Jones (Jr.), Tyler Sowell (Jr.) and Louis Covarrubias (Sr.). There is plenty of beef in the Raider tackles. They are Chance Edwards (6-5, 350, Jr.) and B.K. Allen (6-3, 340, Sr.). Placekicker will be Jared Bates, a senior, has been kicking for three years. We will run multiple sets, said Sherman. As always, the offense will run no-huddle, which creates a challenge for their opponents. A key figure on defense has to be free safety Keanu Kiki Neal. Former pro player Clint Harts younger brother has size (6-0, 200) strength and speed. He is a junior. The other defensive backs are Davy Vera (Sr.), Bo Farmer (Jr.), Brandon Anderson (Soph.), and Kenneth Maxwell (Jr.). Sherman said he has some pretty good players in his secondary. The linebackers are Max McClain (Jr.), Trenton Martin (Jr.) and Devyn Jesmer (Jr.). The nose guard is Tevin Jones (Jr.), Darien Williston (Jr.) is at defensive end. Brandon Curtis (Jr.) is at the other defensive end. Bryce Mobley (Sr.) will be the punter. Sherman is not going out on a limb about this season. We are taking a wait and see approach, he said. It is hard to tell. I am cautiously optimistic. We will see how we react. We will see what kind of team we have after we play some games. Sherman has been coaching since 1984. One of the advantages the Raiders have is that most of the assistant coaches have been there for years. Ty Lawrence is the defensive coordinator. Keith Hileman coaches defensive line and Mike Foote handles defensive line. Jonathan Borum coaches defensive backs. Stan Coburn coaches offensive line along with K.C. Martin. Justin Borum coaches offensive backs. A. J. Bryant coaches wide receivers. Brian Simmons coaches the tight ends. Matt Ellis is volunteer coach with our quarterbacks. Most of the staff actually played football here, Sheman said. The ones who didnt play here have been here so long they might as well have played here.

The veteran coach would love to predict a very successful year for his Raiders but unfortunately the team had problems last year and there are some uncertainties about the teams on the schedule this year. His Raiders went 3-7 last year and find themselves in a new district, Class 4ADistrict 4 in 2011. Sherman said he is cautiously optimistic about the Raiders prospects. His schedule will not include powerhouses Orlando Bishop Moore, Dade City Pasco or Orlando Jones unlike last year. Since they are not on the schedule, that is a reason for rejoicing in Raider Nation. The new district includes Interlachen, Bradford, Mount Dora, Keystone Heights and Umatilla. South Sumter has little or no history with those teams. The Raiders will have their Kickoff Classic Aug. 25 against Wesley Chapel at home with a 7 p.m. start. The Raiders will play what may turn out to be their biggest game of the year when they face Wildwood High Sept. 2. at 7:30 p.m. The game means Sumter County bragging rights and may mean the most to the players. Last year, Wildwood beat South Sumter in a Kickoff Classic. This time, the game counts on the record. The key player on offense is the quarterback and Sherman has three to choose from. The quarterback will be either Levi Sapp, Ian Papenheim or Clay Simmons. They are all doing so well we could let any of them play, Sherman said. We sure could have a multiheaded quarterback. Sapp (Jr.) does everything well. Thinks well. He is doing really well. Papenheim (Sr.) is one of the team captains. He provides senior leadership.

The veteran coach would love to predict a very successful year for his Raiders but unfortunately the team had problems last year and there are some uncertainties about the teams on the schedule this year. His Raiders went 3-7 last year and find themselves in a new district, Class 4ADistrict 4 in 2011. Sherman said he is cautiously optimistic about the Raiders prospects. His schedule will not include powerhouses Orlando Bishop Moore, Dade City Pasco or Orlando Jones unlike last year. Since they are not on the schedule, that is a reason for rejoicing in Raider Nation. The new district includes Interlachen, Bradford, Mount Dora, Keystone Heights and Umatilla. South Sumter has little or no history with those teams. The Raiders will have their Kickoff Classic Aug. 25 against Wesley Chapel at home with a 7 p.m. start. The Raiders will play what may turn out to be their biggest game of the year when they face Wildwood High Sept. 2. at 7:30 p.m. The game means Sumter County bragging rights and may mean the most to the players. Last year, Wildwood beat South Sumter in a Kickoff Classic. This time, the game counts on the record. The key player on offense is the quarterback and Sherman has three to choose from. The quarterback will be either Levi Sapp, Ian Papenheim or Clay Simmons. They are all doing so well we could let any of them play, Sherman said. We sure could have a multiheaded quarterback. Sapp (Jr.) does everything well. Thinks well. He is doing really well. Papenheim (Sr.) is one of the team captains. He provides senior leadership. Simmons is a junior but provides the same things as Papenhim. South Sumter has several running backs. Tailback Shawn Baker (Sr.) played quite a bit last year. Davarreus Gibson (Jr.) will play all of running back positions. Garrett McMullen (Jr.) and Ladovic Gibson (Jr.) will also play. Gibson wasnt allowed to play in the spring game due to scholastic difficulties. The wide receivers are Kameron Bannister (Jr.) and Javonte Everrett (Jr.).

Last year, Matt LaBranche was the interim head football coach at Wildwood High School and just hoping for a chance to hold onto his job. The Wildcats were 6-4 last year and he now has the permanent job. Surprisingly, LaBranche isnt feeling a difference in this year. I guess it feels the same way, he said. I was just going to do the best job I could and go from there. Wildwood is now in a new district. Its a Class 1A district and includes the Villages, Pierson-Taylor and Crescent City. The Wildcats have played the Villages many times. Two years ago, Wildwood also played Pierson-Taylor and Crescent City. Wildwood will play Trinity Christian Deltona at home 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25. That will be their kickoff classic. They open with South Sumter on Sept. 2 at Wildwood. They beat South Sumter for the first time in years in 2010. The score was 14-10. This contest is for bragging rights in Sumter County and is very important to the players. I think its obviously a great game to see where we are at, LaBranche said. I think they are really concentrating on the district. We had three losses in the district last year. The quarterback is senior Sean Hensley, a gifted athlete who is likely to earn himself a college scholarship this year. He took over the job from his brother, Scott. Both transferred from the Villages a few years ago. He took every snap from center last year, LaBranche said. He is a jack-ofall-trades. He can kick, throw, run and he can play free safety for us. Last year, as he went, the team went. We are hoping there will be others who can step up. Wildwood will run multiple offensive sets including two wings and a fullback. They dont normally run a tight end. At running backs are Drew Terry (Sr.), Elliot West (Sr.), Jalen Gooden (Jr.) and Kendrick Brown (Sop.). These can play fullback or wingback. Terry is 5-6 and weighs 200. He is one of the strongest on the team. At wide receiver are Shawn Aten (Sr.) and Donte Johnson (Soph.) Center will be Denzell Williams (Sr.). cock (Jr.) and Devon Papenheim (Soph.), Ians younger brother. Returning Dalton Hofecker, a senior, is injured. Centers will be seniors Dalton Moss and Reid Sarno. Guards will be Dillon Jones (Jr.), Tyler Sowell (Jr.) and Louis Covarrubias (Sr.). There is plenty of beef in the Raider tackles. They are Chance Edwards (6-5, 350, Jr.) and B.K. Allen (6-3, 340, Sr.). Placekicker will be Jared Bates, a senior, has been kicking for three years. We will run multiple sets, said Sherman. As always, the offense will run no-huddle, which creates a challenge for their opponents. A key figure on defense has to be free safety Keanu Kiki Neal. Former pro player Clint Harts younger brother has size (6-0, 200) strength and speed. He is a junior. The other defensive backs are Davy Vera (Sr.), Bo Farmer (Jr.), Brandon Anderson (Soph.), and Kenneth Maxwell (Jr.). Sherman said he has some pretty good players in his secondary. The linebackers are Max McClain (Jr.), Trenton Martin (Jr.) and Devyn Jesmer (Jr.). The nose guard is Tevin Jones (Jr.), Darien Williston (Jr.) is at defensive end. Brandon Curtis (Jr.) is at the other defensive end. Bryce Mobley (Sr.) will be the punter. Sherman is not going out on a limb about this season. We are taking a wait and see approach, he said. It is hard to tell. I am cautiously optimistic. We will see how we react. We will see what kind of team we have after we play some games. Sherman has been coaching since 1984. One of the advantages the Raiders have is that most of the assistant coaches have been there for years. Ty Lawrence is the defensive coordinator. Keith Hileman coaches defensive line and Mike Foote handles defensive line. Jonathan Borum coaches defensive backs. Stan Coburn coaches offensive line along with K.C. Martin. Justin Borum coaches offensive backs. A. J. Bryant coaches wide receivers. Brian Simmons coaches the tight ends. Matt Ellis is volunteer coach with our quarterbacks. Most of the staff actually played football here, Sheman said. The ones who didnt play here have been here so long they might as well have played here.
