They not only came out ready to play by taking the win, 41-6, they were dressed in brand new uniform jerseys. Last spring, Coach Mathew LaBranche and his coaches got together to write an essay and make a video in an effort to earn the team new uniforms from Allen Sportswear. Wildwood was named a finalist in the competition and supporters were asked to get on the sportswear website and vote for their favorite video. The team with the highest number of votes won the uniforms a purchase that can cost up to $10,000, according to LaBranche. I just want them to understand that it would be a huge lift to our program toThe second of two Bushnell men arrested last year for sodomizing a 10-year-old boy was sentenced last week to spend 15 years in prison for the crime. Anthony Shelt, 45, was sentenced to 15 years each on two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child under 12. Shelt was additionally sentenced to 5 years for cultivation of marijuana. All three sentences will run concurrently, according to the ruling by Circuit Court Judge William H. Hallman. Shelt was arrested in July 2010 along with his roommate Charles Coleman, 34, in connection with the case. Coleman was sentenced back in April to 25 years in prison with 10 See SEX Page 2 B OB R EICHMAN Editor About a dozen suspects apprehended in March during a sheriffs office predator sex sting operation began filtering through the Sumter County court system last week, with one of the suspects being sentenced to prison. It is the first sentencing in connection with a multiagency undercover sting operation dubbed STARCOP that resulted in the arrest of 22 suspects from various locations in Florida who authorities say tried to meet under-age children for sex. Most of the suspects appearing in court last week before Circuit Court Judge William Hallman were there for pre-trial hearings. However, last Wednesday, Aug. 24, one of the suspects caught in the sting, Daniel MacDonald, 24, Alachua, pled guilty to a charge of using a computer to lure a minor a thirddegree felony. MacDonald is the first suspect to be sentenced in the sting operation. He was sentenced to 42 months in prison for the crime and 18 months probation, according to Dan Mosley, assistant state attorney. MacDonald is also required to register with the state as a sex offender. Mosley is the lead prosecutor for the majority of the sex sting cases. Initially, MacDonald was arrested on three charges but agreed to a plea arrangement that allowed him to only face sentencing for the one charge, he said. Mosley said he was pleased with the outcome. Because this was the first sentencing, we were anxious to see how the judge would rule and were pleased, he said. The sentence also brought a positive response from the sheriffs office. Our top priority is protecting our children and we hope that this prison sentence acts as a deterrent to those who are thinking about using the Internet to prey on our children, said sheriffs B OB R EICHMAN Editor Always reaching Squeak by, inside Squeak by, inside Daniel MacDonald Richard Dyal, Denzell Williams, Jalen Ishall (across back), Sean Hensley and Kendrick Brown show off Wildwoods new uniform jerseys.

While that may not sound like such a big deal at first, the basic materials he used and the reception he gets are enough to get your attention. His washer and copper and wood antenna pulls in television stations from the other side of the state and almost as many as his dads 50-foot tower antenna attached to the side of their Bushnell home. Oh, and Joeys only 12 years old. But just a few minutes with Joey and you see theres far more to consider than how he made his own antenna. He and his younger brother Jonah, 10, are consistently curious and stretching. Neither of them really seems to have much hesitation about trying something new. Joey is an All-Star baseball player his team even played in the World Series in the 2010 season and both boys play basketball. Well-rounded is a term that seems to fit. For Joey, its seeing the mechanics of things and putting them together, making them work. He decided to make the antenna after reading a story in an issue of Popular Mechanics. Reading the magazine is kind of a family tradition and the boys get great encouragement from both their parents. Their dad Charles said when he was Joeys age he used to read his grandfathers copy of the magazine and now Joey reads his. He made the antenna for fun, but in a recent science fair he made a solar powered box. About four-inches by eight-inches, the clear plastic box he used would typically be used for index reference or recipe cards. Joey added a solar panel, some wires and a meter. Now, when its outside in the sun, the box gathers enough energy to power a light bulb. Hes used studies on endocrines and stopping the aging process to write a school assignment for a futuristic newspaper in the year 2031. After showing his solar box, he begins to share a bit of information about Nerf guns. He pulls out a collection and knows everything about each one and some of their counterparts.

STARCOP was conducted between March 14 and March 20 and logged over 500 hours of Internet time resulting in the arrests of 21 male suspects and one female who is reportedly married to one of the male suspects. Detectives said their Craigslist ads received hits within 10 minutes of posting them when they posed as 14-year-old minors and parents and guardians of minors interested in soliciting children for sex. Detectives placed ads and responded to ads placed by potential suspects on Craigslist. The suspects utilized chats, emails, text messaging and phone calls to undercover detectives to set up meetings to engage in unlawful sexual conduct with minors or in the presence of minors after traveling to an undisclosed residence. When suspects arrived to meet with the minors, they were arrested by law enforcement officers. Four law enforcement agencies, the sheriffs offices of Sumter, Citrus and Lake counties and Florida Department of Law Enforcement, took part in the investigation that resulted in the arrests. STING continued from Page 1 years probation after entering a no contest plea to the charges. Coleman also was registered with the state as a sexual predator following the sentence. Coleman was arrested July 21, 2010, for sodomizing the boy. Shelt was arrested the same day for sex-related crimes on the boy and on a 7-year-old boy. The youth reported the incident while visiting a relative in Citrus County, according to police reports. The relative then contacted authorities who interviewed the boy at a child advocacy center in Citrus County. He reported being sodomized by the man on at least one occasion at a Bushnell residence. SEX continued from Page 1 An Oxford couple was sentenced to 12 years each in prison in the death of Shaianna Hare, 2, strangled to death by a pet Burmese python in 2009. Last week, Circuit Court Judge William Hallman sentenced Jaren Hare, 21, and Charles Jason Darnell, 34, in the third-degree murder case. Hare and her former live-in boyfriend had been convicted by a Sumter County jury in July for third-degree murder, manslaughter and child neglect. Both had faced penalties of up to 45 years in prison. They each additionally received 5 years probation after being released from prison. Both Hare and Darnell went to trial together and received sentences together. Defense attorneys argued that the death of Hares daughter was an accident. Prosecutors said the couple should have known the more than 8feet-long snake was dangerous because it had gotten out of its confines several times. In July 2009, the snake h crawled out of its aquarium and into the childs bedroom where it bit and wrapped itself around Shaianna and strangled her. Hallman said the couple should have realized that the snake could be dangerous to the child.

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY S EPTEMBER 1, 2011 Cold cases arent just forgotten L ast week ended the final chapter of 12 stories taken from the Cold Cases file of the Sumter County Sheriffs Office. The Sumter County Times featured one of the cases each week for 12 consecutive weeks. We know from comments weve received that readers appreciated the stories. Most of the cases were chilling. For the murder victims featured in these stories, their deaths go unsolved and their murderers remain free. Each of the case files contains information, sometimes stacks of information, about the cases. The files include investigative reports, photos of the victims and photos of potential suspects, and other case-related material collected by the sheriffs office in an attempt to solve each of the 12 cases. Some of the material is disturbing to view and read. Many of the photos were far too graphic to include in the newspaper stories we ran. Reliving the cases, which dated back to 1970 and continued through 2007, only drives home the frustration that investigators, families and loved ones feel about having no ending to so many chilling deaths. Of interesting note, although the cases are old, that doesnt mean they have been forgotten. To this day, the sheriffs office continues to work the cases. Investigators still send out information to various agencies in hopes that ever-advancing technologies can provide the pieces they need to make arrests in the cases. In a few of the cases, investigators say they actually believe they know the identities of the killers. Unfortunately, the much needed pieces of evidence required for an arrest are missing. These cases may be old, but investigators dont treat them that way. They are like painful splinters that cant be removed. The chilling murderous acts, the dealings with grieving family members all take their toll and keep investigators watchful. While the publication of these stories has not resulted in any new arrests, it is hoped that bringing these stories to light again will spark something new that persons in the community who know things about the murder victims will come forward and finally end the mystery and the heartache that accompany each of the 12 cases. An environmental disaster Right now in Washington, D.C., Americans from all over are gathered to join voices to Stop the Pipeline the proposed Keystone XL pipeline from Alberta, Canada to Texas, which will pump 900,000 barrels of dangerous tar sands oil every day, the most environmentally devastating form of carbon fuel yet devised. Among these folks are groups from every religious house in this nation from Baptist to Unitarian Universalist. What they and those of us who support them feel, is a sacred rage, the desire to take frustration and anger at what is happening to our sacred environment, and voicing it both locally and nationally. While this pipeline will not travel through Florida, some of the refined products that come from it undoubtedly will so we have a stake in this process, and the duty to express our opinion. This project needs to be stopped. There are plenty of other ways of generating energy available to us that are not so threatening. Once damaged or destroyed by this pipeline, the environment wont return in our lifetime, if ever. Is that worth threatening the lands of abundance that lie in the very path of this monster? Robert Keim UU Church In The Pines Brooksville False Alarms As Sumter County has increased in population and businesses we have seen an increase in false or nuisance alarms. False alarms cause unnecessary panic and bring resources such as emergency services to a location where they are not needed. This causes undue dangers to responding Law Enforcement and the public. In the last six months The Sumter County Sheriffs Office responded to 795 (seven hundred and ninety-five) alarm calls. Over 95 percent (ninetyfive) of these calls were false alarms. An alarm system is a great tool in deterring crime and notification of other emergency issues (fire and medical). The following are some recommendations on ways to reduce false alarms: Make sure everyone is familiar with the alarm system operations. This should include visiting guest and relatives. Secure doors of residence and or businesses before turning on the alarm system. Notify the monitoring facility of any and all changes (i.e. house guests, name changes, new employees, etc.) Equipment should always be routinely inspected and maintained by qualified personnel. Make sure all authorized persons know the code and/or how to cancel a false alarm. Always treat your system with care. Lieutenant to the Sheriff Bobby Caruthers Heres looking at you!

While the chance of humans contracting a mosquito-borne disease is low, we still need to take precautions against mosquito bites, said Dr. Sanford D. Zelnick, director of the Sumter County Health Department. These precautions will be important to limiting the spread of mosquito-borne diseases to humans. Mosquito-borne infections in people include dengue fever, eastern equine encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, and West Nile virus, some of which can cause headache, fever, dizziness, confusion, movement disorders and coma. The best defense against these mosquito-borne illnesses is prevention from bites. This can be done by eliminating the places where mosquitoes lays their eggs, primarily containers that hold standing water. To prevent mosquitoes from living and multiplying around your homes or businesses: DRAIN standing water: Drain water from garbage cans, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discarded old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that arent being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. To protect yourself from mosquito bites and from the diseases mosquitoes carry: COVER your skin with: CLOTHING if you must be outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. REPELLENT apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the manufacturers directions on the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting only to protect children younger than 2 months old. COVER doors and windows with screens: Keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios.

About 8 or 10 property owners have requested annexing their property into the Bushnell city limits. But, because of state governmental changes and reorganizational decisions, those annexation requests had been put on hold until the state changes were enacted and clarified, according to Denise Lee, city director of zoning and code compliance. Now that the states role in local development has been clarified, Bushnell is ready to submit the annexation requests in a Comprehensive Plan amendment, Lee said. In particular, the state Department of Community Affairs was recently overhauled so that local government would have more control over local land use issues. In the past, local government was required to collect detailed information concerning land use requests to the state agency and typically was required to submit more information after state planners reviewed the locally submitted documents. New state regulations give local entities more say over development. Weve gone through the annexations and pulled out whats no longer required by the state, Lee said. The proposed annexations will be considered for recommendation to the state when the board meets at 5:30 p.m. in Bushnell City Council Chambers, 117 E. Joe P Strickland Jr. Avenue. Documents pertaining to the proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment can be reviewed at Bushnell City Hall. Annexation cases to be considered by City of Bushnell B OB R EICHMAN Editor The proposed annexations will be considered for recommendation to the state when the board meets at 5:30 p.m. in Bushnell City Council Chambers, 117 E.

Compeau Church calendar The Refuge at Jumper Creek in Bushnell will receive $1,101 to aid the homeless in the area, thanks to a special collection at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Marion County (UUFMC). The agency (www.therefugejumpercreek.org) provides transitional housing, mentoring, life-skills, education and outreach to individuals and families at risk of homelessness in central Florida. They serve families who have lost their homes due to foreclosure; single parents and their children; individuals and couples who are in financial crises; and anyone in need of help finding shelter. Executive Director Vicki Genz said the donation will be used to expand housing services at the facility by renovating a mobile home. Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages people to seek their own spiritual paths. The faith draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. Members and friends are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. The congregations are places where people gather to nurture their spirits and put their faith into action by helping to make their communities and the world a better place. In months with a fifth Sunday, UUFMC donates that collection to a local charity, as it did for this agency in July. The church (www.uufmc.org) is located at 7280 S.E. 135th St. in Summerfield (off highway 301 a few miles north of Wildwood). It presents forums on timely issues at 9:30 a.m. Sundays and services at 10:30 a.m. All are welcome. UUFMC donates funds to the Refuge at Jumper Creek

Joey originally planned to be an engineer and wanted to go to work for NASA, but with the shutdown of the program, his goals changed. I want to be a doctor, he said, clarifying he wants to be a heart doctor. Joey is an A student no Bs. As a matter of fact, when he got a B one time, he was very upset. I cant stand to get a B. When Jonah, mellow and lounging on the floor gives a few words of encouragement to his brother, saying something about the teacher giving him a grade, Joey responds quickly reminding his brother that the teacher doesnt give it to you, youve go to work for it. While Joeys hammering washers and clipping wires and planning for medical school, Jonahs tilling the land and planting seeds. His interest came from his time at the Sumter County Youth Center where they have a club garden. The club is led by Sumter County master gardeners on the center site. For Jonah, its more outdoors with a love of animals and a concern for people. Jonah has loved animals all his life. He runs through the woods barefoot, looking for critters. He catches them and always wants to keep them, said his mom Nicey Cilenti. She teaches at South Sumter High School and serves as the volleyball coach. Jonahs more in line for a career as a zookeeper. He said he used to start every morning seated in front of the Jack Hannah show while he munched on an Eggo waffle. Picking up on that love of the outdoors, he helps his dad with the cattle and when he decided to grow his garden, he got out the tiller and tilled the rows himself. He checked out other gardens too, to learn how to cultivate and get the best yield from his own. Through the summer, family dinners included vegetables from Jonahs garden. The produce included squash, corn, okra and beans. His fertilizer was organic and the garden was pesticide-free. Even now there are giant okra on the bush, zinnias, sunflowers and periwinkles still growing. With his garden still yielding, Jonah is already making plans for the next garden larger and off to the side of the house. There are also large pots of herbs growing on the porch, which Jonah said is a family effort. They spend days with their dad and their fishing poles. Mr. Cilenti owns a tractor sales business in Bushnell, has a masters degree and was pursuing a career in law, but right now, his focus is on being a good dad he spends time with them on their ventures, helping to fuel their desire to learn. They spend some days just fishing and other days stretching their minds. Mr. Cilenti has his own theories about where his sons personalities and drive will take them. For Joey, he believes its probably going to be some big money career and for Jonah he mentioned politics because of an ability to get along with everybody. And on a lazy afternoon, like its nothing to till the soil and grow a garden at age 10 or create a working television antenna at age 12, the boys meander off to climb the stairs of their clubhouse and sit in a chair in the shade of a big oak that towers overhead. A few minutes pass and Joey disappears. Somewhere, someones playing the drums. Its Joey self-taught. And there, across from the drum set, lying on its side is an electric guitar BUILD continued from Page 1 The boys in the clubhouse their dad built for them. At the bottom are a catchers net for ball practice and a weightlifting bench. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesJonah Cilenti took an interest in gardening, farming and ranching. Hes shown here with some of the okra still growing in his garden. While they usually like to pick it earlier, he said the larger produce is better in some dishes. 0008A1M 000940S Joey Cilenti shows off the antenna he made from a Popular Mechanicsdesign.

P AGE 8 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY S EPTEMBER 1, 2011 The August Lunch Exchange at NASCAR RV Resort at Blueberry Hill brought a new member benefit. Tony Kamus was the first member to receive the Ambassadors Member of the Month Plaque, which was presented by Ambassador Cynthia Edgar. Tony received this plaque due to his dedication to the Chamber and his tireless effort to support the Chamber and the Sumter Community. When asked why he chose to be a member of the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce, he stated that he liked the energy and enthusiasm of chamber leadership and the office staff. Tony also saw it as a great opportunity to network for the business and to make sure the information on Purcell and Beyers gets out correctly. Tony feels there is a real sense of community spirit and pride that is exhibited in the chamber and membership. He also saw the opportunity to be part of a business group that brought timely programs and essential information to him that would help him improve personally and help the business grow. When asked what he felt the greatest challenge for the Sumter County Chamber was, he stated, Leading the membership and business community to innovate and change the way they do business to thrive and grow in a challenging business environment. Change brings challenge, but challenge brings opportunity! The Chambers greatest accomplishment, Tony stated, has been inspiring and motivating the business community to become more involved by becoming more engaged in the chamber and the events like the monthly luncheons and the leads groups. He also feels it an important goal of the Chamber to provide communication, participation, and provide leadership opportunities to the economic engines in Sumter County. Beef & Boogie will give recognition and awareness to the beef industry, but we need to continue to promote the opportunities with the transportation hub in Wildwood, the retirement community of The Villages, and the agricultural businesses in Sumter County, and the small businesses that support the residents and major businesses of Sumter County. We need to continue to promote Sumter County as the place to be for businesses and individual consumers. As our economic engines in Sumter County continue to grow, Tony said. I would like to see a quarterly meeting where government (state, local, and federal) entities, agricultural, transportation, development and technology would meet in a forum to speak to what their plans are to expand and grow i n Sumter County including their needs for construction, supplies, infrastructure expansion and improvements, housing, retail, and services. I see this forum as a way to help us all to be involved in what is coming in the future so we as business owners and professionals can plan and adjust accordingly.

P AGE 10 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY S EPTEMBER 1, 2011 Raiders squeeze by Wesley Chapel FOOTBALL SEASON LAUNCH South Sumter High head football coach Inman Sherman wondered if his team ever really practiced the onside kick after the Thursday Kickoff Classic with Wesley Chapel High School. In the Kickoff Classic, the visitors sneaked up on the Raiders and almost upset them. Wesley Chapel High scored a touchdown with 18 seconds left but fell one point of victory 27-26 losing to South Sumter High. Wesley Chapel Highs Sasha Mentor caught a sixyard TD pass from quarterback Keegan Tanner but the Wildcats could not convert on an attempted twopoint conversion pass. Wesley Chapel tried four onside attempts and recovered all of them on kickoffs. Their first onside kick set up a quick score. Wesley Chapel scored on their first play from scrimmage. Tanner found Robert Jota open for a 49yard touchdown pass. Josias Vizcano kicked the point after. South Sumter tied the score early in the second quarter. Running back Shawn Baker ran it in untouched from five yards out. Jared Bates kicked the extra point. South Sumter quarterback Ian Papenheim scrambled six yards for the go-ahead touchdown. Bates missed the point after. Baker scored his second touchdown on a 37-yard run with 3:59 left in the half. Raider free safety Keanu Neal picked off a pass from Tanner and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown. The Wildcats took advantage of a bad snap by South Sumter on an attempted punt. Wesley Chapel had the ball at the Raider oneyard line. Tanner ran for the score from four yards out. Wesley Chapel back Devin Piper scored a TD on a five-yard run. The score was set up by a pass interference call against the Raiders. The score was 27-20 South Sumter. South Sumter blocked the attempted PAT. You would think we never worked on onside kicks, said Sherman. Kiki Neal and Shawn Baker did well. Sherman indicated he was concerned about the Raiders first opponent. They will face Wildwood High Friday in Wildwood. We know they are wellcoached, Sherman said of Wildwood.

TAMMY FORE/Sumter County Times Team support is the name of the game, as shown by Onix Torres (right) and Jalen Golden. Wildwood wins Classic 41-6 Wildwood High head football coach Matt LaBranche was very happy with his teams 41-6 triumph over Trinity Christian Deltona Thursday in the Kickoff Classic. I thought our offensive line and running backs did a great job, LaBranche said. We still have work to do on our defensive backfield and special teams but overall the coaching staff is very happy with the output which everyone on our team did Thursday. Very importantly, the coach said his team had no injuries. The opener is against South Sumter High School Friday, Sept. 2 at 7:30 p.m. in Wildwood. The game is for bragging rights and for general pride. Both schools are familiar with each other. I expect South Sumter to be very big up front and to pound the ball until we stop them, the coach said. I have noticed that South Sumter has a very much improved passing game that we must watch out for. As always, their defense is very aggressive and explosive. L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent

This will be his first trip to the State game. I am sure there will be many more for him and other Sumter County Golfers, said Dr. Lindsey Smith, the new coordinator for Sumter County. Candace Lord is a veteran competitor and medal winner in many state games of the Special Olympics. This will be her first trip as a golfer. Candace is a very talented athlete and showed that in her putting, by draining 3 of 5 putts from 6 foot in the area games. Dr. Smith expressed her pride in all her athletes and hopes to expand the program. She states, We can only achieve our goals by increasing sponsor and individual donations and continued volunteer support. We currently can offer golf, basketball, bocce, and bowling, but are continuing our efforts to expand into more sports and reach more Special Athletes. Donations and volunteers can help by contacting Sumter County Special Olympics at: 352-454-2202. Please help us move forward, Sumter County can lead the way. The weekend golf tournament was a swinging success for five-year-old Markee Lyles and her family as nearly 90 golfers came out to play in the tournament fundraiser. It was a good turnout, said Jennifer Cramer, one of the event coordinators. Friends hosted the golf tournament at the TripleS Golf Ranch in Dade City to help with the expenses and medical needs for Markee, who is battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Since the entire event was created to help with the expenses and medical needs of Markee, who better to play than the little girl herself? We were all in awe of her, said Cramer of watching Markee pick up a golf club. She managed to stay with the crowd and the energy all day. Gollfers finished up about 2 p.m. and dinner and the auction were over by 6 p.m., Cramer said. While the numbers looked good, Cramer said they didnt have a total yet. It was wonderful, she said, adding that two of the teams were from Tampa Bay and their group had already hosted their own dinner and raised money for Markee and her family. One of those teams took second place in the tournament and also donated all their winnings back. Along with golfing, Markee also did some bidding at the auction and bought herself a ring, Cramer said with humor. Actually, Markee did the bidding but someone else did the purchasing and gave it to her, said Cramer. Markee spent the day with her close friend Gabrielle Ringo. Cramer said theyre participating in another event this Saturday when the Bushnell Walmart hosts a Bone Collector Event. Cramer and others plan to set up a table at the event to sell dinners and auction off a tree stand. Completing one fundraiser and moving on to another, Cramer said, We want to thank everybody for their participation. That effort includes 2,000 bottles of water donated by one local resident and several pies and cakes baked by another. The baked goods were auctioned off.
