Wildwood loses two On the hunt Nearly 40 hunters turned out for an afternoon dove hunt last week in Webster. The event was a fundraiser hosted by Sumter County Longbeards members in a local hayfield last Saturday. Shirley and Lamar Parker led the effort with Longbeards Wildwood City Manager Robert Smith is moving on. As of Oct. 24, Smith will no longer be employed as the city manager of Wildwood. Smith is leaving the city to accept a position as town manager for Windermere, in Orange County. The town is only about a 10-minute drive from Smiths Winter Garden home. Smith, 35, has been city manager since Feb. 2009. He was the director of development services before that for approximately three and a half years. Leaving Wildwood was a hard decision to make, Smith said. Im happy with Wildwood and we have a lot of projects started here. But his proximity to Windermere and the opportunity to become town manager was a great opportunity, he said. Smiths first day with Windermere is Oct. 25. Ill miss the employees and the City Commission, he said. Weve laid a lot of groundwork and Ive fully enjoyed working with the commission. They were a pleasure. CELE BR ATING THE ER AS Inside KATHY BRANNEN/Courtesy to the TimesThe event drew nearly 40 hunters who spent the day relaxing after lunch. Some of the hunters are shown here preparing to head into the field. See SMITH Page 2 W hile Spirit Week certainly isnt designed to reconnect you with some entity thats crossed over but at South Sumter High School, its definitely a week that sparks the imagination and unleashes more than the average pom-pom or football jersey from the closet. This week, peace signs, tie dye and psychedelic were standard as well as the poodles on fluffy skirts. There were ponytails and bobby socks, stuffed animals, binkies and even toddlers and tiaras. Spirit Week is actually a week of fun for the Raiders to gather B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff writer B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff writer A s cooler temperatures start to settle in, fall is in the air, and its definitely on the calendar.

King Day last Friday in Wildwood, just in case you didnt know. The City Council recently issued a proclamation naming the special day in her honor. After 34 years, or rather 34 and a half years she just wont let you forget that additional half year King retired from working for the City of Wildwood on her day of honor. King, executive assistant to the city manager, leaves her longtime employment with lots of good memories and excitement about things to come. Ill miss my friends, the people I work with and the community, she said. But Im looking forward to spending more time with my husband and our family. There have been a lot of changes in Wildwood since King first started as a clerk in the utility billing department in Aug. 1976. Back then, a minimum monthly utility bill was $12.51. That included $5.01 for water, $4 for sewage and $3.50 for garbage.

The bills were handwritten and the cash register cranked, people paid either by cash or check, no debit or credit cards, she said. Shes worked with seven city managers over the years and three different mayors. In those early days, work accommodations werent as lavish as they are today. When I started with the city, the city managers office, utility department, City Commission chambers, county tag office, police department and the jail were all housed in one building, she said. The fire department moved out a short time before King started. Kings fondest memories are when city employees would get involved in community events like the homecoming parade and the Christmas parade. She also has some fond memories of the days when Richard Dick Rector was mayor. Back then, there was more time for things, she said. Rector was an avid fisherman and gardener. Often, he would go mullet fishing and then prepare a meal for city employees from his catch. Hed tell us to put a closed for lunch sign on the front door and wed come on over to the fire station for lunch. Almost always, he would cook Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for the staff, she said. Back then, it felt like family, she said. But then technology and management changes happened, and things changed. Now, everything moves too fast to really enjoy each other in that type of setting, she said. King remembers the then miracles of correction paper and correction fluid, it was awesome. But when the facsimile machine came through the door, it seemed that was the day that things started changing and things kept getting faster and faster. During her years with the city, she advanced from billing clerk to secretary to the city manager, director of the citys rental assistance program, interim city manager and administrative assistant to the city manager, before being named executive assistant. .King said its time for me to move on and I am very, very excited about that. Kings husband Gerard just recently retired and the couple is making plans. The couple is planning a trip up the east coast that will eventually lead them to Gerards home state of Maine. Together, the couple has four children and six grandchildren. I feel sure they will help us fill any days that we might have available in the future, she said. Time spent with family is very important to us, a great investment in our future and we thank God for that awesome privilege.

After more than 34 years with the City of Wildwood, King retired last Friday. KING continued from Page 1 It will be tough to leave here, he said. In the meantime, the Florida City and County Management Association will assist the city to help find a replacement for Smith. Mayor Ed Wolf said Monday that Smith will be missed. I hate to lose him, hes done an excellent job for the city, Wolf said. Hes top notice. Smith informed the City Council of his decision to accept the Windermere position with plenty of notice. We knew of his decision in time for budget sessions, but I was hoping hed changed his mind, Wolf said. He ran this city like a business and he brought a lot of professionalism to city hall, the mayor said. It was very easy to be an elected official with him as city manager. He did his job and he always followed through. I hope we can find someone exactly like him. Until a new city manager is hired, City Clerk Joseph Jacobs will temporarily take the position. A replacement isnt expected to be found until late this year or early next year.

Police report Police: Three necklaces, but not the right ones A robbery victim in The Villages had three necklaces returned to her last week, unfortunately, they werent the necklaces that had been stolen from her home. The theft happened on the 1400 block of Juarez Place when a resident hired a neighbor, Steven Bates, 21, to do some yard work for her, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. The woman noticed Bates coming out of her master bedroom and questioned him about being inside, Caruthers said. Bates reportedly told her that he had to use the bathroom. The following day, she noticed that three gold necklaces were missing from a dresser drawer in the bedroom. The woman placed the value of the necklaces at $1,000, according to Caruthers. She confronted Bates about the missing items and he initially denied taking them, Caruthers said. He later admitted to taking the jewelry and said he would return the items. Bates did return three necklaces and left a note on the victims door apologizing for taking them, Caruthers said. When the woman studied the returned items, she realized they were not the necklaces that had been taken. Deputies were called to the scene on Friday, Sept. 2, and Bates admitted that he sold her necklaces at a cash-for-gold place for $300, Caruthers said. Bates was arrested for grand theft and placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $2,000. B OB R EICHMAN Editor Steven Bates Visit our website at www.sumtercountytimes.com

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 6, 2011 A different angleRobert Wesolowski keeps his word processor hot cranking out propaganda for the democratic political machine, but because he is biased it is hard to understand his writings, so I have included an interpretation table (see below) to help the reader. Two wrongs make a right democrats make a goof but it is OK because Regan, Bush, or any other republican made a similar goof. Republicans refuse to negotiate in good faith if you dont do it the democrat way, without comment, you are selfish, arrogant, and a loser. Racist you proved a democrat wrong and made that information public. Republicans block all good and worthy legislation democrats had control of both houses and the presidency for two years and all they could do was pass Obamacare in the dark while blocking republican participation. Now they give their friends and their donors a get out free pass to circumvent Obamacare. Bush created the economy problems and passed them to Obama Obama and the democrats spent hundreds of millions of dollars in a campaign to gain governmental control, and through the stimulus programs they have gained all that money back with a substantial profit. Truth and honesty hunt down and destroy anybody who opposes the democratic party line regardless of their previous accomplishments (i.e. CIA, military, etc.). Facts and figures lame numbers and statements pulled out of thin air with no background information, no references, and incorrect context. New jobs phony numbers, outrageous saving claims, temporary government jobs (census workers), and claims for saving jobs that the democrats dont deserve. Republicans do nothing several major legislation packages sent from the house to the senate were tabled by Harry Reid, a democrat, and were not acted on. Harry did not like the proposed legislation because it was in opposition the democrat position. Although I could fill pages with these statements, Ill stop here because the reader has by now realized how meaningless, abusive, and wrong Roberts writings are. Regards, Ronald ManciniA note of thanks The First Christian Church of Inverness would like to take this opportunity to thank our minister, John A. Scott. John and his family, wife Sheri, daughters Krystal, Hannah and son Andrew, have been here since March 2009. We are very fortunate to have John who is a tireless worker especially in visitations, calling and ministering to the congregation. He is always available when needed. Anyone in search of a Bible based, God loving church, please come and join us. First Christian Church of Inverness Friend Day Sunday, Oct. 2 was Friend Day at Providence Baptist Church. Friends of members and friends from our community joined us for special services and dinneron-the-grounds. The adult who brought the most visitors was given a one-hundred dollar gift card. At the end of the morning services the Lord blessed as four people were baptized, one family joined our fellowship and one precious soul accepted Christ as her Savior. The Lord is working at Providence and we would love for you to come and see what He is doing! Providence Baptist ChurchBack to School Carnival Bushnell Elementary Schools PTO put on a Back to School Carnival last Tuesday. There were games, a double bounce slide, photos, a clown and food for the families of BES to enjoy. The PTO wanted to offer a fun filled night to the students and families of Bushnell Elementary that was affordable for all. The teachers and staff of BES came out to help support by running games, making popcorn and snow cones, as well as taking fall pictures and grilling hotdogs. Mr. Fowler and his wife dressed as a clown to create balloon animals with his wife, our school receptionist. The community greatly supported the carnival. The SSHS JV Cheerleaders ran the cotton candy booth, Wal-Mart and Winn Dixie made food donations, and A & Ds BouncinG FuN RentalS donated a gift certificate for a chance drawing of a free dry bounce house rental; congratulations to Mrs. Christensen, the winner. Everyone had a great time with family and friends at Bushnell Elementary School. This is just another reason that Bushnell Elementary School is a Great Place to Grow.Bushnell Elementary School PTO When the good ones go, you sure feel it I ve got to say it. I dont like it when some people retire. In this business you work with lots of people some good, some not so good. But boy, when the good ones go, you feel it. It all started when Bernard Dew retired as county administrator. While Bernard could be short on quotable statements from time to time, he was always enjoyable to talk to and easy to work with except for having to pull comments out of him. He was probably excited about retirement but I felt a loss. I still do. Bernard was great for off the record comments that gave me better insight into county issues. He was enjoyable to talk to. Sandi Howell was the same way. I didnt like it when she left the county earlier this year. Id known her long enough before she married that its still hard for me not to call her by her former name, Sandi Dixon. She was great to work with and between Howell and Dew and a few other county employees who have also retired, I always got the information I needed and had a good time in the process. Not that I dont enjoy dealing with current County Administrator Bradley Arnold. Arnold is very good about getting back to me when I need information. Its just that we dont have the bond I felt with Dew or with Howell. We dont joke. We dont know each other very well. There was always plenty of time to joke with Howell and Dew. Of course, those relationships go back decades and that makes a big difference. As clich as it sounds, things seemed to be simpler back then and there was more time to sit around and talk and more importantly there was more time to joke around. It even bothered me when County Attorney Randall Thornton retired from his position a few years back. I wouldnt exactly call Randall a friend because I think he liked to keep the press at arms length, but Ive got to say, I really admired his decision-making ability. While some people mockingly called him the fifth commissioner because of the large amount of influence he had with the County Commission, his input was often invaluable and it was enjoyable to watch his mind work. He steered that board away from making some bad decisions and he could get me chuckling at a County Commission meeting when his temper would flair. Now comes Doris King, longtime assistant to Wildwoods city manager. While Doris and I have lost touch over the years, I still dont like the idea that shes retired. She too was fun to work with, and Im going to miss her. It seems ironic to have worked in one job long enough to see so many people retiring. Our ages arent that far apart. I guess change is good, but darn, seeing some of these people leave their jobs over the past years has really been difficult. They were all valuable employees and beyond that, they made my job more enjoyable just by knowing them.

OPINIONS INVITED A step beyond Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor Extension office P arents, do you really have any impact on your teens decision to drink? Homecoming is right around the corner and you are probably wondering what is my teen going to do when presented with an opportunity to try a beer, take a shot or worse drink and drive? The good news is YES! Researchers at Brigham Young University have found that teenagers who grow up with parents who are either too strict or too permissive tend to binge drink more than their peers. The study was published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs. What, wait a minute, this research says either too strict or too permissive are they sending us a mixed message? While we know that we cant necessarily keep our teens from trying alcohol we can equip them with the skills necessary to make decisions about drinking and any number of risky behaviors. The research mentioned above surveyed 5,000 teens in seventh to twelfth grade about frequency and quantity of drinking as well as how they communicated with their parents. The largest group of teens who abused alcohol were those with indulgent parents who did not monitor their behavior. These youth were three times more likely to participate in binge drinking. For both girls and boys who have unsupervised time in which they have no responsibility their likelihood of trying risky behaviors, such as drinking, drug use and sexual activity increase according to the Journal of Adolescent Health. Therefore, if youth must spend time unsupervised it is prudent to provide structure and clear boundaries along with responsibilities that youth must accomplish. It is also important that parents continue to check in with their teens during unsupervised time. Furthermore, research provided by the Search Institute shows that youth seek clear boundaries and appreciate knowing the Bob Reichman Editor Clearly set boundaries are important for kids Sarah Hensley Extension Office See EXTENSION Page 12 BRENDA LOCKLEAR/ Sumter County TimesStaff of the Sumter County Fifth Judicial District Attorneys office hosted a yard sale on S.R. 48 in Bushnell Saturday.

Eleven singers and 33 songs would bear the tale and give the tally for the final round in the Lickity Splits Karaoke contest this month. A crowd of more than 230 people gathered at the Bushnell ice cream shop for the final round, a competition worth $1,000 to the first place contestant. That prize was taken by singer Raquel Sanchez. The event drew entire families, from children on up to grandparents as folks settled in their lawn chairs, lounged in their golf carts or kicked back in the Adirondack chairs at the shop for fun, music and even some dancing. The Friday night finalists in the Lickity Splits karaoke contest were Brianne Noel, Emily Mooneyham, Melanie Whitelaw, Dawn Palmer, Emily Poe and Raquel Sanchez, John Hindman, Michael Saylor, Billy Bowles, Jesse Palmer, Ken Waggoner. Several of the contestants, as well as Mad Cow Music will be at Bushnells annual Fall Festival this year, to perform.

For the teens whose parents were very strict they did not internalize their parents values nor understand why heavy drinking was a poor choice. These youth were twice as likely to binge drink. For youth whose parents are too overbearing they do not learn to develop a sense of what is the wrong choice versus the right choice. So what does all this mean, do you set boundaries or give freedom to your teenager? The answer is you do both. Give your kids clear expectations; and not because you said so. Youth need to understand why in order to develop values that protect them from making poor choices regarding risky behavior. According to research parents who balance between accountability and support leads to the lowest levels of risky drinking. Furthermore, youth who trust their parents develop a protective factor against sexual activity, tobacco, and marijuana use in girls and alcohol use in boys. As in all things moderation is the key to success and a parents job is to provide children with the tools they need to make good decisions in a safe environment where trust and love is evident.

Report by Donna and Steve Lind Tracys Point Fishing Lake PanasoffkeeNews and tournament results for week ending Sept. 25: Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 197 Anglers Bass Fishing 182 Bass caught 206 Bass Released 191 Pan Fish Caught 185Boy Howdy forget bout the fishin how bout this weather? I looked forward to our first true cold snap for months each year and we finally got it. How sweet it is. As I have reported in the last few articles I just knew that the fishing would take a turn for the best. Blue Gill have been smoking but the Speckled Perch (Crappie) will be right around the corner I loaded up on live minnows last Friday so were ready to put you on em! Tim Gay was a guest here at Tracys Point and was fishing in a canoe in front of the dock adjacent to his room. He caught a nice Bluegill using live Big Red worms. Spencer Miller and Josh Hacker were fishing on the Point, the boys were fishing with worms and they were having the time of their lives. No matter what paths these young men may take in life, it is likely that they will always maintain memories of what we refer to as the good ole days. Kelbi Morgan she is 4 years old and Carson, also 4 years old caught some nice fish. The night before their family caught 22 catfish and several Bluegill. I just love to see kids having a god time like this it makes it all worthwhile. Also, Lamar was at it again with a nice 5 pound bass caught on a watermelon seed worm at the mouth of Big Jones Creek. In past articles I have provided information on several fish including the Bowfin, Crappie, Bluegill, Long Nose Gar. This weeks Lake Panasoffkee fish of the week is the Large Mouth Bass which is the most popular fish on the lake. The following information is compliments of the FWC: Appearance: The largemouth bass is the best known and most popular game fish in North America. It is distinguished from other black bass because the upper jaw extends beyond the rear edge of the eye, and the first and second dorsal (back) fins are separated by an obvious deep dip. Habitat: The Florida largemouth bass is the state freshwater fish. Found statewide in lakes and rivers, they are commonly found along vegetation, or underwater structure, but schooling bass are also found in the middle of lakes. Behavior: Black bass spawn in spring, when males fan out a bed and then protect the eggs and fry. The baby fish eat zooplankton (microscopic animals that drift in the water column), and when about an inch long begin eating other small fish. Adults eat a wide variety of fish, crustaceans and larger insects. State Record: 17.27 lbs. (Note several larger fish have been documented but not certified.) Big Catch: 24 inches or 8.0 lbs. Fishing Tips and Facts: Florida is an outstanding destination to catch a trophy. A photo and measurements of your fish can be converted into lifelike fiberglass mounts, so you can release the lunker to fight another day. The best live bait is a golden shiner, fished under a float or freelined. Typically, the shiner is hooked through the lips or back with a large hook, 2/0 to 5/0. A medium to medium-heavy rod with 14to 20-pound test line is preferred, particularly when fishing in areas with thick vegetation or cover. Plastic worms are the most dependable artificial bait for largemouth bass. A weedless Texasor Carolina-rigged worm is especially effective with heavy plant cover. Checking Florida Fishing Weekly is a great way to learn about the full array of techniques available to bass anglers as well as specific details about different bass fisheries around the state. The final Florida Black Bass Management Plan can be reviewed online, or printed using the links below, along with summary materials and background information. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation approved this plan at a public meeting in St. Augustine, Florida, on June 9, 2011. We would like to thank the thousands of anglers who provided input either in person, or via surveys to help ensure this plan included a broad public perspective. We also greatly appreciate the hard work of the Technical Assistance Group (TAG) that helped interpret the public input and merge it with our best scientific recommendations to develop the plan. The TAG was comprised of representatives from a variety of public stakeholder segments such as avid anglers, tackle shop owners, lure manufacturers, tournament anglers, fishing guides, outdoor writers, university researchers and tourism destination marketers. We heard from more than 7,500 people, who completed either the first or second survey (or both) or spoke with our biologists. The complete plan can be downloaded if you choose. There are also simple 3-panel (letter-sized) and 4-panel (legal-sized) brochures summarizing the plan. See links below. Together we will ensure Florida is the undisputed Bass Fishing Capital of the World, thus helping significantly to enhance the habitat not only for bass but for all aquatic species and people. Promoting the quality of our fisheries will also tourists and generate the next generation the cares further helping our economy and local businesses and improving the quality of life for families and children by getting them involved in a lifetime of healthy, outdoor recreation. I hope the above information has been enjoyable and informative.

Slow Cooker Tips To cook food safely, manufacturers and the USDA recommend that the slow cooker be filled between halfand two-thirds full. Ground meats, poultry and sausage must be completely cooked before you place them in the slow cooker. Brown in a skillet over medium heat. Dont open the lid during the cooking process each peek adds an additional 15 to 20 minutes of cooking time. Dairy products tend to break down in a slow cooker, so only add them during the last 15 minutes of cooking. For high altitude cooking, add an additional 30 minutes for each hour of time specified in the recipe.

P AGE A16SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 6, 2011 With a critical District 4A-4 showdown with Bradford looming, South Sumter knew it had other business to tend to Friday night at Ned Love Field. That business was with Dunnellon High School, a district champion the past two seasons. After a sluggish opening quarter of play, the Raiders offense gained just 18 yards. But South Sumter (4-1) found its rhythm after the Tigers tied the game at 7-all with less than two minutes remaining in the opening half. In the final three quarters of action, the Raiders offense gained 271 and tacked on 19 unanswered points in posting a 26-13 victory against Dunnellon. Boy, theyre pretty physical, South Sumter coach Inman Sherman said. They do a great job of getting after the ball. We earned every little inch we got tonight. That first quarter was a battle. Thats a very good football team. They remind me of us. We werent perfect, but we made a play or two more than they did. The Raiders certainly did. South Sumter forced a pair of turnovers in the first half, including Kenneth Maxwells 45-yard interception return in the first quarter, before reeling off those 19 unanswered points on offense. After the Tigers Malcom Ross scored on a 5yard run to tie the game at 7-all with less than two minutes remaining in the first half, South Sumter, working in its no-huddle offense, moved the ball with ease in the waning minute of the second quarter, to take a 13-7 lead on Dalton Hofeckers 7yard touchdown reception with 6 seconds left in the first half. The Raiders set the score up with a pair of long receptions, most notably on Ladovick Gibsons 27-yard reception on a first-and-10 play from the Tigers 41-yard line. Two plays later and quarterback Ian Papenheim found Hofecker in the back of the end zone. Those passing plays certainly sparked us, Sherman said. Scoring right before half was certainly a key for us. The Raiders wasted little time picking up where they left off in the third quarter, taking their opening drive 67 yards in nine plays. South Sumters Garrett McMullen capped it with a 5-yard touchdown run for a 20-7 as the Raiders defense never allowed the Tigers to mount a challenge. South Sumer capped its scoring with Ladovick Gibsons 10-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Clay Simmons. The Tigers offense finally found a spark when Wesley Beasley hauled in a 42-yard touchdown reception with 2:13 remaining in the second half to cut the Raiders lead to 2613. Dunnellons ensuing onside kick attempt was thwarted as South Sumter ran the clock out. Give credit to coach Sherman and his staff, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Hes been doing this for 25 years; he knows how to prepare for big games like this. Theyve got a great team. Theyre going to great things this year. South Sumter plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Bradford County at home. The Tornadoes (5-0 overall, 1-0 District 4A-4) are coming off a 46-7 shelling of Oakleaf. Bradford has scored 40 or more points in its last four games. Weve been waiting for this game for a while now, Sherman told his players after the game. This is a big game. JULIE MANCINI/Special to the Sumter County TimesSouth Sumter defensive back Kenneth Maxwell eludes Dunnellons Wesley Beasley during his 45-yard interception return for a touchdown in first-quarter action Friday night at Ned Love Field. The Raiders improved to 4-1 with their 26-13 victory.

FIRST PLACE IN STATE One would think that if Sean Hensley gained 195 yards rushing, Wildwood Highs football team would win. It didnt quite work out that way Friday. The 6-foot-2 quarterback picked up the yards on 15 carries and scored a touchdown and Kendrick Brown ran 10 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns but Williston beat Wildwood 35-28. The Wildcats even gained 400 yards rushing which usually happens in a victory. However, the Wildcats hurt themselves on penalties. They had 14 penalties for 145 yards. Penalties can kill off a team as they did Friday. Hensley ran for 143 yards against Crescent City when Wildwood won. The senior has become the focus of the Wildcat offense. Teams that run over their opponents usually win but it didnt happen Friday night. Wildwood head football coach Matt LaBranche wouldnt even comment on the latest game. There was at least one shining star on the Wildwood defense, however. Elliot West hounded the Williston athletes and managed 13 tackles and one sack for the evening. Perhaps, West can repeat his feat this upcoming Friday. The next opponent has a relatively short trip over. Citrus Countys Lecanto High will play Wildwood Friday night at 7:30 p.m. It will be the Homecoming game for Wildwood. Lecantos teams were an automatic victory for their opponents in the past but nothing is automatic any more. Hopefully, the Wildcats will have something to celebrate after facing the Panthers.

Wildwood loses two On the hunt Nearly 40 hunters turned out for an afternoon dove hunt last week in Webster. The event was a fundraiser hosted by Sumter County Longbeards members in a local hayfield last Saturday. Shirley and Lamar Parker led the effort with Longbeards Wildwood City Manager Robert Smith is moving on. As of Oct. 24, Smith will no longer be employed as the city manager of Wildwood. Smith is leaving the city to accept a position as town manager for Windermere, in Orange County. The town is only about a 10-minute drive from Smiths Winter Garden home. Smith, 35, has been city manager since Feb. 2009. He was the director of development services before that for approximately three and a half years. Leaving Wildwood was a hard decision to make, Smith said. Im happy with Wildwood and we have a lot of projects started here. But his proximity to Windermere and the opportunity to become town manager was a great opportunity, he said. Smiths first day with Windermere is Oct. 25. Ill miss the employees and the City Commission, he said. Weve laid a lot of groundwork and Ive fully enjoyed working with the commission. They were a pleasure. CELEBRATING THE ERASInside KATHY BRANNEN/Courtesy to the TimesThe event drew nearly 40 hunters who spent the day relaxing after lunch. Some of the hunters are shown here preparing to head into the field. See SMITH, Page 2 While Spirit Week certainly isnt designed to reconnect you with some entity thats crossed over but at South Sumter High School, its definitely a week that sparks the imagination and unleashes more than the average pom-pom or football jersey from the closet. This week, peace signs, tie dye and psychedelic were standard as well as the poodles on fluffy skirts. There were ponytails and bobby socks, stuffed animals, binkies and even toddlers and tiaras. Spirit Week is actually a week of fun for the Raiders to gather BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff writer BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff writer As cooler temperatures start to settle in, fall is in the air, and its definitely on the calendar.

King Day last Friday in Wildwood, just in case you didnt know. The City Council recently issued a proclamation naming the special day in her honor. After 34 years, or rather 34 and a half years she just wont let you forget that additional half year King retired from working for the City of Wildwood on her day of honor. King, executive assistant to the city manager, leaves her longtime employment with lots of good memories and excitement about things to come. Ill miss my friends, the people I work with and the community, she said. But Im looking forward to spending more time with my husband and our family. There have been a lot of changes in Wildwood since King first started as a clerk in the utility billing department in Aug. 1976. Back then, a minimum monthly utility bill was $12.51. That included $5.01 for water, $4 for sewage and $3.50 for garbage.

The bills were handwritten and the cash register cranked, people paid either by cash or check, no debit or credit cards, she said. Shes worked with seven city managers over the years and three different mayors. In those early days, work accommodations werent as lavish as they are today. When I started with the city, the city managers office, utility department, City Commission chambers, county tag office, police department and the jail were all housed in one building, she said. The fire department moved out a short time before King started. Kings fondest memories are when city employees would get involved in community events like the homecoming parade and the Christmas parade. She also has some fond memories of the days when Richard Dick Rector was mayor. Back then, there was more time for things, she said. Rector was an avid fisherman and gardener. Often, he would go mullet fishing and then prepare a meal for city employees from his catch. Hed tell us to put a closed for lunch sign on the front door and wed come on over to the fire station for lunch. Almost always, he would cook Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for the staff, she said. Back then, it felt like family, she said. But then technology and management changes happened, and things changed. Now, everything moves too fast to really enjoy each other in that type of setting, she said. King remembers the then miracles of correction paper and correction fluid, it was awesome. But when the facsimile machine came through the door, it seemed that was the day that things started changing and things kept getting faster and faster. During her years with the city, she advanced from billing clerk to secretary to the city manager, director of the citys rental assistance program, interim city manager and administrative assistant to the city manager, before being named executive assistant. .King said its time for me to move on and I am very, very excited about that. Kings husband Gerard just recently retired and the couple is making plans. The couple is planning a trip up the east coast that will eventually lead them to Gerards home state of Maine. Together, the couple has four children and six grandchildren. I feel sure they will help us fill any days that we might have available in the future, she said. Time spent with family is very important to us, a great investment in our future and we thank God for that awesome privilege.

After more than 34 years with the City of Wildwood, King retired last Friday. KINGcontinued from Page 1 It will be tough to leave here, he said. In the meantime, the Florida City and County Management Association will assist the city to help find a replacement for Smith. Mayor Ed Wolf said Monday that Smith will be missed. I hate to lose him, hes done an excellent job for the city, Wolf said. Hes top notice. Smith informed the City Council of his decision to accept the Windermere position with plenty of notice. We knew of his decision in time for budget sessions, but I was hoping hed changed his mind, Wolf said. He ran this city like a business and he brought a lot of professionalism to city hall, the mayor said. It was very easy to be an elected official with him as city manager. He did his job and he always followed through. I hope we can find someone exactly like him. Until a new city manager is hired, City Clerk Joseph Jacobs will temporarily take the position. A replacement isnt expected to be found until late this year or early next year.

Police report Police: Three necklaces, but not the right ones A robbery victim in The Villages had three necklaces returned to her last week, unfortunately, they werent the necklaces that had been stolen from her home. The theft happened on the 1400 block of Juarez Place when a resident hired a neighbor, Steven Bates, 21, to do some yard work for her, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. The woman noticed Bates coming out of her master bedroom and questioned him about being inside, Caruthers said. Bates reportedly told her that he had to use the bathroom. The following day, she noticed that three gold necklaces were missing from a dresser drawer in the bedroom. The woman placed the value of the necklaces at $1,000, according to Caruthers. She confronted Bates about the missing items and he initially denied taking them, Caruthers said. He later admitted to taking the jewelry and said he would return the items. Bates did return three necklaces and left a note on the victims door apologizing for taking them, Caruthers said. When the woman studied the returned items, she realized they were not the necklaces that had been taken. Deputies were called to the scene on Friday, Sept. 2, and Bates admitted that he sold her necklaces at a cash-for-gold place for $300, Caruthers said. Bates was arrested for grand theft and placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $2,000. BOBREICHMAN Editor Steven Bates Visit our website at www.sumtercountytimes.com

PAGE4 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER6, 2011 A different angleRobert Wesolowski keeps his word processor hot cranking out propaganda for the democratic political machine, but because he is biased it is hard to understand his writings, so I have included an interpretation table (see below) to help the reader. Two wrongs make a right democrats make a goof but it is OK because Regan, Bush, or any other republican made a similar goof. Republicans refuse to negotiate in good faith if you dont do it the democrat way, without comment, you are selfish, arrogant, and a loser. Racist you proved a democrat wrong and made that information public. Republicans block all good and worthy legislation democrats had control of both houses and the presidency for two years and all they could do was pass Obamacare in the dark while blocking republican participation. Now they give their friends and their donors a get out free pass to circumvent Obamacare. Bush created the economy problems and passed them to Obama Obama and the democrats spent hundreds of millions of dollars in a campaign to gain governmental control, and through the stimulus programs they have gained all that money back with a substantial profit. Truth and honesty hunt down and destroy anybody who opposes the democratic party line regardless of their previous accomplishments (i.e. CIA, military, etc.). Facts and figures lame numbers and statements pulled out of thin air with no background information, no references, and incorrect context. New jobs phony numbers, outrageous saving claims, temporary government jobs (census workers), and claims for saving jobs that the democrats dont deserve. Republicans do nothing several major legislation packages sent from the house to the senate were tabled by Harry Reid, a democrat, and were not acted on. Harry did not like the proposed legislation because it was in opposition the democrat position. Although I could fill pages with these statements, Ill stop here because the reader has by now realized how meaningless, abusive, and wrong Roberts writings are. Regards, Ronald ManciniA note of thanksThe First Christian Church of Inverness would like to take this opportunity to thank our minister, John A. Scott. John and his family, wife Sheri, daughters Krystal, Hannah and son Andrew, have been here since March 2009. We are very fortunate to have John who is a tireless worker especially in visitations, calling and ministering to the congregation. He is always available when needed. Anyone in search of a Bible based, God loving church, please come and join us.First Christian Church of InvernessFriend DaySunday, Oct. 2 was Friend Day at Providence Baptist Church. Friends of members and friends from our community joined us for special services and dinneron-the-grounds. The adult who brought the most visitors was given a one-hundred dollar gift card. At the end of the morning services the Lord blessed as four people were baptized, one family joined our fellowship and one precious soul accepted Christ as her Savior. The Lord is working at Providence and we would love for you to come and see what He is doing! Providence Baptist ChurchBack to School CarnivalBushnell Elementary Schools PTO put on a Back to School Carnival last Tuesday. There were games, a double bounce slide, photos, a clown and food for the families of BES to enjoy. The PTO wanted to offer a fun filled night to the students and families of Bushnell Elementary that was affordable for all. The teachers and staff of BES came out to help support by running games, making popcorn and snow cones, as well as taking fall pictures and grilling hotdogs. Mr. Fowler and his wife dressed as a clown to create balloon animals with his wife, our school receptionist. The community greatly supported the carnival. The SSHS JV Cheerleaders ran the cotton candy booth, Wal-Mart and Winn Dixie made food donations, and A & Ds BouncinG FuN RentalS donated a gift certificate for a chance drawing of a free dry bounce house rental; congratulations to Mrs. Christensen, the winner. Everyone had a great time with family and friends at Bushnell Elementary School. This is just another reason that Bushnell Elementary School is a Great Place to Grow.Bushnell Elementary School PTO When the good ones go, you sure feel it Ive got to say it. I dont like it when some people retire. In this business you work with lots of people some good, some not so good. But boy, when the good ones go, you feel it. It all started when Bernard Dew retired as county administrator. While Bernard could be short on quotable statements from time to time, he was always enjoyable to talk to and easy to work with except for having to pull comments out of him. He was probably excited about retirement but I felt a loss. I still do. Bernard was great for off the record comments that gave me better insight into county issues. He was enjoyable to talk to. Sandi Howell was the same way. I didnt like it when she left the county earlier this year. Id known her long enough before she married that its still hard for me not to call her by her former name, Sandi Dixon. She was great to work with and between Howell and Dew and a few other county employees who have also retired, I always got the information I needed and had a good time in the process. Not that I dont enjoy dealing with current County Administrator Bradley Arnold. Arnold is very good about getting back to me when I need information. Its just that we dont have the bond I felt with Dew or with Howell. We dont joke. We dont know each other very well. There was always plenty of time to joke with Howell and Dew. Of course, those relationships go back decades and that makes a big difference. As clich as it sounds, things seemed to be simpler back then and there was more time to sit around and talk and more importantly there was more time to joke around. It even bothered me when County Attorney Randall Thornton retired from his position a few years back. I wouldnt exactly call Randall a friend because I think he liked to keep the press at arms length, but Ive got to say, I really admired his decision-making ability. While some people mockingly called him the fifth commissioner because of the large amount of influence he had with the County Commission, his input was often invaluable and it was enjoyable to watch his mind work. He steered that board away from making some bad decisions and he could get me chuckling at a County Commission meeting when his temper would flair. Now comes Doris King, longtime assistant to Wildwoods city manager. While Doris and I have lost touch over the years, I still dont like the idea that shes retired. She too was fun to work with, and Im going to miss her. It seems ironic to have worked in one job long enough to see so many people retiring. Our ages arent that far apart. I guess change is good, but darn, seeing some of these people leave their jobs over the past years has really been difficult. They were all valuable employees and beyond that, they made my job more enjoyable just by knowing them.

Homecoming is right around the corner and you are probably wondering what is my teen going to do when presented with an opportunity to try a beer, take a shot or worse drink and drive? The good news is YES! Researchers at Brigham Young University have found that teenagers who grow up with parents who are either too strict or too permissive tend to binge drink more than their peers. The study was published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs. What, wait a minute, this research says either too strict or too permissive are they sending us a mixed message? While we know that we cant necessarily keep our teens from trying alcohol we can equip them with the skills necessary to make decisions about drinking and any number of risky behaviors. The research mentioned above surveyed 5,000 teens in seventh to twelfth grade about frequency and quantity of drinking as well as how they communicated with their parents. The largest group of teens who abused alcohol were those with indulgent parents who did not monitor their behavior. These youth were three times more likely to participate in binge drinking. For both girls and boys who have unsupervised time in which they have no responsibility their likelihood of trying risky behaviors, such as drinking, drug use and sexual activity increase according to the Journal of Adolescent Health. Therefore, if youth must spend time unsupervised it is prudent to provide structure and clear boundaries along with responsibilities that youth must accomplish. It is also important that parents continue to check in with their teens during unsupervised time. Furthermore, research provided by the Search Institute shows that youth seek clear boundaries and appreciate knowing the Bob Reichman Editor Clearly set boundaries are important for kids Sarah Hensley Extension Office See EXTENSION, Page 12 BRENDA LOCKLEAR/ Sumter County TimesStaff of the Sumter County Fifth Judicial District Attorneys office hosted a yard sale on S.R. 48 in Bushnell Saturday.

For the teens whose parents were very strict they did not internalize their parents values nor understand why heavy drinking was a poor choice. These youth were twice as likely to binge drink. For youth whose parents are too overbearing they do not learn to develop a sense of what is the wrong choice versus the right choice. So what does all this mean, do you set boundaries or give freedom to your teenager? The answer is you do both. Give your kids clear expectations; and not because you said so. Youth need to understand why in order to develop values that protect them from making poor choices regarding risky behavior. According to research parents who balance between accountability and support leads to the lowest levels of risky drinking. Furthermore, youth who trust their parents develop a protective factor against sexual activity, tobacco, and marijuana use in girls and alcohol use in boys. As in all things moderation is the key to success and a parents job is to provide children with the tools they need to make good decisions in a safe environment where trust and love is evident.

Report by Donna and Steve LindTracys Point Fishing Lake PanasoffkeeNews and tournament results for week ending Sept. 25:Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 197 Anglers Bass Fishing 182 Bass caught 206 Bass Released 191 Pan Fish Caught 185Boy Howdy forget bout the fishin how bout this weather? I looked forward to our first true cold snap for months each year and we finally got it. How sweet it is. As I have reported in the last few articles I just knew that the fishing would take a turn for the best. Blue Gill have been smoking but the Speckled Perch (Crappie) will be right around the corner I loaded up on live minnows last Friday so were ready to put you on em! Tim Gay was a guest here at Tracys Point and was fishing in a canoe in front of the dock adjacent to his room. He caught a nice Bluegill using live Big Red worms. Spencer Miller and Josh Hacker were fishing on the Point, the boys were fishing with worms and they were having the time of their lives. No matter what paths these young men may take in life, it is likely that they will always maintain memories of what we refer to as the good ole days. Kelbi Morgan she is 4 years old and Carson, also 4 years old caught some nice fish. The night before their family caught 22 catfish and several Bluegill. I just love to see kids having a god time like this it makes it all worthwhile. Also, Lamar was at it again with a nice 5 pound bass caught on a watermelon seed worm at the mouth of Big Jones Creek. In past articles I have provided information on several fish including the Bowfin, Crappie, Bluegill, Long Nose Gar. This weeks Lake Panasoffkee fish of the week is the Large Mouth Bass which is the most popular fish on the lake. The following information is compliments of the FWC:Appearance: The largemouth bass is the best known and most popular game fish in North America. It is distinguished from other black bass because the upper jaw extends beyond the rear edge of the eye, and the first and second dorsal (back) fins are separated by an obvious deep dip.Habitat: The Florida largemouth bass is the state freshwater fish. Found statewide in lakes and rivers, they are commonly found along vegetation, or underwater structure, but schooling bass are also found in the middle of lakes.Behavior: Black bass spawn in spring, when males fan out a bed and then protect the eggs and fry. The baby fish eat zooplankton (microscopic animals that drift in the water column), and when about an inch long begin eating other small fish. Adults eat a wide variety of fish, crustaceans and larger insects.State Record: 17.27 lbs. (Note several larger fish have been documented but not certified.) Big Catch: 24 inches or 8.0 lbs.Fishing Tips and Facts: Florida is an outstanding destination to catch a trophy. A photo and measurements of your fish can be converted into lifelike fiberglass mounts, so you can release the lunker to fight another day. The best live bait is a golden shiner, fished under a float or freelined. Typically, the shiner is hooked through the lips or back with a large hook, 2/0 to 5/0. A medium to medium-heavy rod with 14to 20-pound test line is preferred, particularly when fishing in areas with thick vegetation or cover. Plastic worms are the most dependable artificial bait for largemouth bass. A weedless Texasor Carolina-rigged worm is especially effective with heavy plant cover. Checking Florida Fishing Weekly is a great way to learn about the full array of techniques available to bass anglers as well as specific details about different bass fisheries around the state. The final Florida Black Bass Management Plan can be reviewed online, or printed using the links below, along with summary materials and background information. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation approved this plan at a public meeting in St. Augustine, Florida, on June 9, 2011. We would like to thank the thousands of anglers who provided input either in person, or via surveys to help ensure this plan included a broad public perspective. We also greatly appreciate the hard work of the Technical Assistance Group (TAG) that helped interpret the public input and merge it with our best scientific recommendations to develop the plan. The TAG was comprised of representatives from a variety of public stakeholder segments such as avid anglers, tackle shop owners, lure manufacturers, tournament anglers, fishing guides, outdoor writers, university researchers and tourism destination marketers. We heard from more than 7,500 people, who completed either the first or second survey (or both) or spoke with our biologists. The complete plan can be downloaded if you choose. There are also simple 3-panel (letter-sized) and 4-panel (legal-sized) brochures summarizing the plan. See links below. Together we will ensure Florida is the undisputed Bass Fishing Capital of the World, thus helping significantly to enhance the habitat not only for bass but for all aquatic species and people. Promoting the quality of our fisheries will also tourists and generate the next generation the cares further helping our economy and local businesses and improving the quality of life for families and children by getting them involved in a lifetime of healthy, outdoor recreation. I hope the above information has been enjoyable and informative.

PAGEA16SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER6, 2011 With a critical District 4A-4 showdown with Bradford looming, South Sumter knew it had other business to tend to Friday night at Ned Love Field. That business was with Dunnellon High School, a district champion the past two seasons. After a sluggish opening quarter of play, the Raiders offense gained just 18 yards. But South Sumter (4-1) found its rhythm after the Tigers tied the game at 7-all with less than two minutes remaining in the opening half. In the final three quarters of action, the Raiders offense gained 271 and tacked on 19 unanswered points in posting a 26-13 victory against Dunnellon. Boy, theyre pretty physical, South Sumter coach Inman Sherman said. They do a great job of getting after the ball. We earned every little inch we got tonight. That first quarter was a battle. Thats a very good football team. They remind me of us. We werent perfect, but we made a play or two more than they did. The Raiders certainly did. South Sumter forced a pair of turnovers in the first half, including Kenneth Maxwells 45-yard interception return in the first quarter, before reeling off those 19 unanswered points on offense. After the Tigers Malcom Ross scored on a 5yard run to tie the game at 7-all with less than two minutes remaining in the first half, South Sumter, working in its no-huddle offense, moved the ball with ease in the waning minute of the second quarter, to take a 13-7 lead on Dalton Hofeckers 7yard touchdown reception with 6 seconds left in the first half. The Raiders set the score up with a pair of long receptions, most notably on Ladovick Gibsons 27-yard reception on a first-and-10 play from the Tigers 41-yard line. Two plays later and quarterback Ian Papenheim found Hofecker in the back of the end zone. Those passing plays certainly sparked us, Sherman said. Scoring right before half was certainly a key for us. The Raiders wasted little time picking up where they left off in the third quarter, taking their opening drive 67 yards in nine plays. South Sumters Garrett McMullen capped it with a 5-yard touchdown run for a 20-7 as the Raiders defense never allowed the Tigers to mount a challenge. South Sumer capped its scoring with Ladovick Gibsons 10-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Clay Simmons. The Tigers offense finally found a spark when Wesley Beasley hauled in a 42-yard touchdown reception with 2:13 remaining in the second half to cut the Raiders lead to 2613. Dunnellons ensuing onside kick attempt was thwarted as South Sumter ran the clock out. Give credit to coach Sherman and his staff, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Hes been doing this for 25 years; he knows how to prepare for big games like this. Theyve got a great team. Theyre going to great things this year. South Sumter plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Bradford County at home. The Tornadoes (5-0 overall, 1-0 District 4A-4) are coming off a 46-7 shelling of Oakleaf. Bradford has scored 40 or more points in its last four games. Weve been waiting for this game for a while now, Sherman told his players after the game. This is a big game. JULIE MANCINI/Special to the Sumter County TimesSouth Sumter defensive back Kenneth Maxwell eludes Dunnellons Wesley Beasley during his 45-yard interception return for a touchdown in first-quarter action Friday night at Ned Love Field. The Raiders improved to 4-1 with their 26-13 victory.

FIRST PLACE IN STATE One would think that if Sean Hensley gained 195 yards rushing, Wildwood Highs football team would win. It didnt quite work out that way Friday. The 6-foot-2 quarterback picked up the yards on 15 carries and scored a touchdown and Kendrick Brown ran 10 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns but Williston beat Wildwood 35-28. The Wildcats even gained 400 yards rushing which usually happens in a victory. However, the Wildcats hurt themselves on penalties. They had 14 penalties for 145 yards. Penalties can kill off a team as they did Friday. Hensley ran for 143 yards against Crescent City when Wildwood won. The senior has become the focus of the Wildcat offense. Teams that run over their opponents usually win but it didnt happen Friday night. Wildwood head football coach Matt LaBranche wouldnt even comment on the latest game. There was at least one shining star on the Wildwood defense, however. Elliot West hounded the Williston athletes and managed 13 tackles and one sack for the evening. Perhaps, West can repeat his feat this upcoming Friday. The next opponent has a relatively short trip over. Citrus Countys Lecanto High will play Wildwood Friday night at 7:30 p.m. It will be the Homecoming game for Wildwood. Lecantos teams were an automatic victory for their opponents in the past but nothing is automatic any more. Hopefully, the Wildcats will have something to celebrate after facing the Panthers.
