The anticipated need for The Salvation Armys services is not expected to be reduced anytime soon which is why the organization is moving quickly to meet those needs and create even more community services. A campaign is under way to build a 30,000square-foot facility, approximately five times the size of the Salvation Armys current Leesburg headquarters, in order to accommodate the organizations increasing demand for its almost daily meal service for the needy and senior citizens. While the facility will be in Lake County, Sumter County residents are welcome, said Salvation Army Major Tony Barrington. Sumter residents will continue to receive services provided by the agencys Bushnell branch at 870 N. Main St., he said. The Salvation Armys main goal is to help people with basic emergency needs, Barrington said. The agency can provide food assistance, utility and water assistance, rent assistance in emergency situations and clothing to name a few. The Bushnell facility is open from 8:30 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8:30 a.m. until noon on Friday. They can be reached at 568-2284. The new $6 million facility planned for Leesburg will also offer classrooms, meeting space, a chapel, gymnasium, computer lab and other multi-use rooms for Salvation Army programs. The Salvation Army conducted a needs assessment of the community in 2009 and the message overwhelmingly was that the community needs more wholesome, safe programs for children, said Barrington. The new facility will allow us to meet that need with afterschool tutoring and fun activities, music lessons, vacation Bible school and more. In Bushnell, the Main Street branch is operating an afterschool program but additional students are welcome to attend, he said. A Lake Panasoffkee man died this past weekend after being struck by a Dodge van last Wednesday night, just after 9 p.m., according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. George Romer III, 31, was riding his Raleigh Coronado bicycle east along C.R. 470, near C.R. 400, when he was struck. According to the FHP report, the driver of the van, Ronald L. Wolford Jr., 49. stopped the van after the collision and his passenger exited the vehicle to render aid to Romer. When a Sumter County deputy arrived, Wolford allegedly fled the scene and travelled to his own residence where he was later arrested on charges of driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a crash with injuries. Romer was flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center with critical injuries, but died over the weekend. Since Romers death, the charges against Wolford have been upgraded. He is charged with DUImanslaughter, DUI-property damage and leaving the scene of a crash, according to the report. The incident remains under investigation. I N S I D E Making a difference Ronald L. Wolford Jr. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Lake Panasoffkee man died this past weekend after being struck by a Dodge van last Wednesday night, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Christina Richardson likes her new front door. Shes pretty pleased with the new windows and the new water heater too. At 97, Richardson had some problems at her Wildwood home that needed to be solved. The life-long Wildwood resident had drafts through her old windows and her front door had seen better days. The door had been damaged and wasnt efficient for dealing with weather conditions. On a limited income, making repairs like replacing doors, a water heater and windows was cost prohibitive, she said. I never could have afforded it without help, Richardson said. Help came by way of the Mid-Florida Community Services Weatherization Department. The department offers a federally-funded Weatherization Assistance Program to help eligible low-income families improve the energy Kenny Ryan Davidson Man arrested for sexual battery on teen Detectives arrested a Center Hill man on 10 counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child, according to a Sumter Countys sheriffs report. Authorities believe Kenny Ryan Davidson, 22, had 10 sexual encounters with the unidentified 14 year-old girl over the past month and the incidents took place at either the victims residence or Davidsons Center Hill residence, according to the report. The investigation was initiated after the victims parent contacted the sheriffs office. Davidson was on probation for grand theft at the time of his arrest. He is in the Sumter County Detention Center where he is being held without bond.

P AGE 2S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 27, 2011 The campaign to build the new facility, led by two prominent Lake County businessmen, will officially kick off in November with a team of more than 40 dedicated volunteers canvassing the community to educate residents about the Salvation Armys services and to raise money for the project. Attorney Archie Lowry of the firm Potter, Clement, Lowry and First National Bank of Mt. Dora vice president William Binneveld are enthusiastic soldiers in this effort. Its likely that many residents are unaware of the extent of the Salvation Armys programs in our community, said Bill Binneveld, campaign co-chair. Supporting this campaign is a small price to pay considering the potential impact if the Salvation Army could not provide the social services it offers every day. Bill and I are honored to lead this campaign because it truly benefits all of Lake and Sumter counties, said Archie Lowry, campaign co-chair. We are optimistic that the community will step up to help so that we can begin construction in early 2013. The Salvation Army has already purchased 10 acres on Leesburgs South Street, approximately one mile from the current headquarters. With some trusts and grants already in the bank, Major Barrington anticipates needing to raise approximately $3 million to cover construction costs. A donation to the Salvation Army is actually an investment in the community, said Barrington. Aside from our programs that benefit the community, we will make our beautiful new building available to organizations and groups for their benefit. About the Salvation Army The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar spent is used to carry out those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.

Police report Suspects arrested in attempted burglary Detectives arrested two men last week, after they allegedly attempted to burglarize a Mabel area home. Christopher Garcia, 31, of Webster and Thomas M. Fussell, 31, of Bushnell were arrested after the homeowner reported the incident to the sheriffs office, according to a sheriffs report. According to authorities, the men attempted to burglarize a home on C.R. 772, but were unsuccessful in gaining entry. The homeowners video surveillance system captured the images of suspects trying to pry open a door with what appears to be a screwdriver at about 1:20 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20. The video played an important part in leading detectives to the identity of the two men. Both men, arrested for attempted burglary and criminal mischief, are being held in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond. Garcia and Fussell were facing charges in unrelated cases and were out on bond when they were arrested. Thomas M. Fussell Christopher Garcia The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a Monday morning crash that killed one man and injured two others. Investigators were still attempting to confirm the victims identity at press time. According to an FHP report, it was just after 8 a.m. Monday when the driver of a 2008 Toyota Prius was travelling south on C.R. 475 at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of S.R. 44. The driver reportedly drove around a tractor-trailer that was stopped at the sign and headed into the intersection, where a Ford light-armored car carrier was traveling west on S.R. 44 in the inside lane. The front, right corner of the armored car struck the left side of the Prius, then both vehicles traveled off the north shoulder and caught fire. The driver of the Prius was not able to get out of the vehicle and died from his injuries at the crash, according to the report. Jimmy Colon, the driver of the armored car, and his passenger Franklin Espinal received minor injuries. The crash remains under investigation. Man dies, two others injured in car crash The Sumter Campus Library is located in Sumterville. It is open to all residents of Sumter County.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 27, 2011 Parents placing children at risk N ew parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccine-preventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health. Citrus County Chronicle Thank you Providence Baptist Church would like to say thank you to all those who stopped by our tents at the Bushnell Fall Festival!

This is especially appropriate this week during Make A Difference Week, Oct. 16-22. The culmination of the week is Saturday, Oct. 22. It is during this day that a group of volunteers gathered by the Webster Community Hall at 9 a.m. to inaugurate the first Community Vegetable Garden. We have named our beautification project Webster in Bloom. In a little over six months, volunteers have transformed many a drab area into a beautiful and colorful spot. Again many thanks go out to the volunteers, persons and organizations who have donated pots, plants and potting soil to make this project a huge success. You have all Made A Big Difference in Webster! Gratefully, Michael Harris, Parks and Recreation City of Webster Commissioner SECO employees pledge $50,068 to United Way S umter Electric Cooperative has completed its 2011-2012 United Way campaign and its community-minded employees have pledged $50,068 to assist those less fortunate in the Co-ops seven county service territory. SECO employees choose where their individual donations go and the breakdown for the current area United Way campaigns is as follows: Lake & Sumter Counties $27,322 Marion County $13,766 Citrus County .. $ 5,860 Other counties $ 3,120 Total ... $50,068 Our employees face many of the same economic challenges that our member/customers are facing. However, despite the current economic climate, they have certainly not abandoned their tradition of commitment to the communities we serve and the people who live within them, said SECO CEO Jim Duncan. I am very proud of them for their support of United Way, but its also important to mention that our employees are involved in a wide variety of humanitarian and community causes and events throughout the year. They do so by donating their time, talents and monetary support, he concluded. The Co-op also has its own humanitarian programs such as the SECO Angel Fund and the SECO Gatekeeper Program. Both programs have lent support to literally thousands of people who were in need of help.

OPINIONS INVITED SECO Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor A shoe box can become a childs whole world when filled with items which show that the child is cared for enough that a person in America would send him or her a special box for Christmas. Again this year the Samaritans Purse is sponsoring Operation Christmas Child which sends small shoe boxes to waiting children around the world. These shoe boxes are filled with school supplies such as pens, pencils, and sharpeners, crayons, stamp and ink pad; small toys such as small cars, dolls, harmonicas, yoyos, jump ropes; hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, mild bar soap (in a plastic bag) combs, washcloths; other items such as Tshirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry. It is easier to remember what not to include says Aldene Thomas coordinator for the Baptist Church in Bushnell, Do NOT include anything that could break, melt (such as chocolate) or spill in transit. Things such as glass bottles of anything, aerosol cans, used or damaged items, or war related toys, and interesting enough toy snakes were excluded last year. Just pack a shoe box full of things your kids would enjoy if they did not have electricity. Everyone can participate by packing a box or boxes of small items for children and bringing them to the 1st Baptist Church in Bushnell on Anderson Street, the 1st Baptist Church in Lake Panasoffkee on Hwy. 470, or the 1st Baptist Church of Wildwood on Oxford Street in Wildwood include $7 check or money order to cover cost of shipping. Shoe boxes can be dropped off at the Church Offices. Boxes may be packed for either a boy or a girl, also ages are 2 to 4 years old, 5 to 9 years old, or 10 to 14 years old. If a box is designated for a specific sex and age it will not be repacked, if items come for multiple ages separate boxes may be assembled at the various locations. If you would like to track where your box goes you may make your donation on line at www.samaritanspurse.org/ezgive. A label will be generated that should be attached to the box and a response will be sent to the individual indicating what country that box was sent to. Aldene Thomas says she encourages families to fill the shoe boxes as a family activity, allowing each child to add gifts to the total. We have so much in America that we need to take time with our families and appreciate all that we have. Our children need to be able to participate in giving and seeing that other children have so little. The shoe boxes in many countries act as storage places for these few personal items. In Bushnell the ladies of the church also make up small bags for the children to carry their items to school. The shoe boxes are too flimsy for childrens active lifestyles. The project is headed by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and is non-denominational. Mr. Graham began Samaritans Purse as a relief organization in 1993 and found so many children in many areas that had nothing. He then began an annual program just for the children in underprivileged countries called Operation Christmas Child since then 86 million gift-filled shoe boxes have been sent to hurting children around the world. One little boy said his shoe box was the first thing he ever owned. You often hear us use the phrase the power of a simple gift. That describes Operation Christmas Child in a nutshell. Last year we delivered 8.2 million gift-filled shoe boxes to hurting children in places like earthquake devastated Haiti and war-scarred Sudan, said founder Franklin Graham. How big is a shoe box?

Richardsons family members helped her fill out an application requesting assistance and she met the guidelines to have the improvements made without cost. Brenda Mobley, program director, said a number of improvements were made to Richardsons home to help reduce her energy bill. Besides those mentioned, the agency also recharged her air conditioning system, insulated her hot water heater, replaced eight windows, installed energy-saving light bulbs to name a few. While Mid-Florida Community Services is based in Brooksville, the agency provides service to five counties, including Sumter, Mobley said. She encourages low-income residents to contact the agency if they have need of the agencys services. In 2009, the agency provided assistance to 1,136 homes in the five-county area and additional stimulus funding from the federal government means more homeowners can take advantage of the program, Mobley said. Its a very worthwhile service and were looking for more Sumter residents to join it, she said. For more information about MidFlorida Community Services weatherization program call 352-796-1427.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 27, 2011, P AGE 7 BOB REICHMAN/Sumter County TimesMary Lou Jordan peels a Granny Smith apple in preparation of making the pies. Edra Nell Courtney and Joy Pitney are two of the volunteers that help make the pies. RELIGION Martha Polk and Edie White work on the pie crusts while other volunteers peel apples. T achycardia is a dangerously rapid heartbeat, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat and dead is no heartbeat at all and I had all three recently. That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently. I lost my camera. And by my camera I mean the one the newspaper gave me to use and not mine to keep. I got it back, but for about 40 minutes my heart raced and flip-flopped and stopped beating (if only in my imagination) because I thought it was gone, forever into oblivion, gone, gone, gone. I had it with me when I got on the plane to Washington, D.C. with the World War II veterans I was traveling with because I took their pictures. I had it the whole day I was in D.C. because I took pictures, and I took pictures once we returned to the airport in Clearwater. After I left the airport I got into a cab to take me less than five miles away to a restaurant where I was to meet my husband. Paid the cab driver, greeted the husband. Kiss, kiss, blah, blah. Want to see my pictures?, I asked. Tired, yet wound up from a long day of travel, I opened my purse to get the camera that hadnt been out of my reach all day and it. Was. Not. There. I panicked. I prayed, but I still panicked. Not only was the camera not mine, but it had photos on it from my trip with the veterans that I needed and couldnt retake. While I panicked I walked around in circles in the restaurant and asked a waitress for a phone book I concluded I took the camera out of my purse to reach the $10 bill I had tucked away for cab fare. Someone got the cab company number for me and I called, most likely rambling incoherently to the poor woman who answered the phone. Thankfully she took pity on me, put me on hold and called all her drivers and asked who had driven a crazy lady from the St. Petersburg-Clearwater airport to the nearby Beef OBradys. Since there had been only one, he called in, said he found my camera on the seat and within 10 minutes delivered it to me. And the angels sang! I gave him twice the fare amount and thanked him profusely. I may have even offered him my firstborn. I know I cried with relief and gratitude mixed with tiredness and slight insanity. (He looked scared as he left.) My heart returned to its regular rhythm and all was and is well. However, for that brief time, all was not well. I had lost something important and during its time of lostness it was all I could think of. All I wanted was to find it. I was hungry, thirsty and tired, but how could I eat, drink or sleep until it was found? Jesus told stories about lost things. In the Bible when something is repeated its God saying, Listen up yall this ones important. Take notes. One story was about a lost sheep and another about a lost coin. He talked about the extent the shepherd goes to find just one lost sheep, even leaving his flock of 99 others to retrieve it its that precious to him. The woman who lost her coin lights a lamp, sweeps her house clean and doesnt stop searching until she finds it and then calls all her friends and says, Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin! (Luke 15:9). Im with you, sister. I feel your joy. However, Jesus wasnt talking about sheep and coins, but about us, and not so much about our lostness as about Gods intense focus on finding us. While hes not wringing his hands, walking in circles and rambling on the phone to cab company dispatchers, he wants his lost children found. As badly as I wanted to find my camera, how much more does God want his children safely home with him? The Bible says the angels sing when one sinner repents. Losing my camera and then having it returned to me gave me a glimpse into how God might feel about us. Its good to be found!

Thursday is Pie Day Its Thursday and that means Pie Day for some members of the Church of Christ in Wildwood. Once a week, a handful of church volunteers come together on Thursdays to lend their creative talents to making apple pies inside the churchs new fellowship hall.. Each volunteer brings certain ingredients and together the group starts the pie-making process. We make them from scratch, says pie-maker Martha Polk. We all bring something and we buy our own ingredients. While shes busy preparing the dough, other volunteers are busy peeling Granny Smith apples for the four pies they will be distributing. About a year ago, members of the congregation started making the pies for shut-ins and needy community members. They also throw in a pie to people who have recently moved into the area or are new to the church. While the pies are baking, the volunteers have devotions. The idea was the brainchild of church member June Crenshaw, Polk said, as a way to provide a service to the community.

CHAMBER CONNECTION Our byway is old Florida, real Florida. We want to tell the story, we dont want it to be lost, said Brooke Moffis, who spoke on behalf of the Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway Corridor Advocacy Group at the October Chamber Lunch Exchange in Bushnell. Brooke represents the UF/IFAS Sumter County Extension office, and joins others from industries ranging from small business owners, retirees, concerned citizens and more to make up the Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway Corridor Advocacy Group. The journey of The Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway began in 2009 as a grass roots organization of concerned citizens who represent the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce, Sumter County Public Works, and UF/IFAS Extension. Pursuit of the Florida Department of Transportations Scenic designation through the Florida Scenic Highways Program quickly followed. The roads that comprise the proposed Byway include a cross section of the natural beauty that Sumter County offers. The Byway traverses pastoral farmlands, cattle ranches and horse farms with lush open fields. The Byway represents the charm and resources that our community desires to preserve, said Moffis. Its going to be lost if we dont take action to preserve it. For more information on the Byway or to write a letter of support, contact Diane Boorum at the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce.

Sumter County Community Comes Together to Plan First Sumter County Beef and Boogie Festival A coalition of businesses, community leaders and residents has come together to make the first Sumter County Beef and Boogie Festival possible. From business sponsors large and small, to a diverse and active committee that has accepted the daunting task of producing a first-of-its-kind event in Sumter County, the Beef and Boogie Festival represents the work of an exciting partnership of hands-on contributors. Sumter County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Andrew Cripps said, The idea of putting on this festival, which is a first for our chamber, was frightening at first. There were so many elements that we had not tackled before. In fact, aside from the annual Sumter County Fair, there hasnt been a comparable event in Sumter County that I know of. And we are doing it in a large and important venue, but one that isnt naturally set up for a gated festival. Without such a large group of people, each willing to roll up their sleeves and take a chunk of the responsibility, we could never pull this off. Im proud to be part of that group. Regardless of the success of the festival, it is a wonderful experience to work with all these capable and unselfish people, and to see the event come together, Cripps said.

Fun was the theme at Webster Elementary School on Oct. 12 as staff and students celebrated their fourth annual Jump Rope for Heart assembly. This years JRFH campaign was WES most successful yet. The students shattered records and goals by collecting over $3,000 in donations to fight heart disease. Kindergartner Mark DeCosta raised $450, which is a JRFH record high amongst Webster students. A whopping 43 percent of WES 647 students participated. Superintendent Rick Shirley got slimed. Teachers hammered their way to frozen T-shirt championships, battled for position in musical chairs, and wrapped each other in toilet paper. The students laughed, cheered and chanted. Alejandra Cretul, JRFH youth marketing director for Levy, Citrus, Sumter and Marion counties, said, It is apparent that this is a very special school with teachers and staff that truly care about each other and their students. Websters event is one of the best that I have seen for creativity, spirit, staff involvement and student participation. In the weeks leading up to the assembly PE aides Virginia Moffitt and Carol Huggins worked feverishly behind the scenes as the de facto accountants. Huggins and Moffitt attributed every dollar donated to the student it came from. Students earned skip-a-laps, water bottles, and peace of mind. The driving force behind it all is PE Coach Kay VandeMark. For the last four years VandeMark has been organizing annual school-wide JRFH fundraisers at Webster. VandeMark and PE Coach Steve Strange hype the big fun day to the students, set up all the vents, and make every part of Jump rope for Heart in Webster work. So, another year of Jump rope for Heart concluded at Webster Elementary School. The staff and students are already thinking about next year.

P AGE 16SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 27, 2011 Linda Venable speaks with Sandi Revels and June Slay. Jackie Peterson with her mother Wilma Revels. Carson, Larry Wells and Tim Edwards with guest speaker Mike Joiner Kimber Sarver with her daughter, Sara, serving up treats. Hundreds of ranchers, farmers and other guests chatted as the annual Sumter County Bureau banquet got underway earlier this month. The annual dinner was held on Thursday, Oct. 13 at the Sumter County Fairgrounds with 325 people attending. Designed as a fun and informative evening for members, the night included dinner, news from the state and national level and a collection of door prizes. Wildwood High School alumnus Mike Joiner served as guest speaker for the event. Joiner is the Assistant Commissioner and Chief of Staff of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. He touched on several subjects for guests including the effort to get even more local produce out to the state and nation. He talked about Wholesome Way a program partner that doubles the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables provided to residents who have the SNAP card. SNAP is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or what was the former Food Stamp Program. SNAP focuses on nutrition and benefit amounts. As for the farm bureau, each county has their own and many charge for the annual dinner, but the Sumter County bureau provides the dinner as one of the membership benefits, according to secretary Laura Bondurant. Joiner went on to say that Florida still provides 85 percent of the nations winter produce and is known as the Winter Basket. He shared some of the effort theyre making on behalf of agriculture at the state and national level. The most critical issue were facing is water, he said. One of the challenges is the water management districts making decisions for the growers. One of the successes is a program called Payment for Environmental Services paying land owners to store water on their land. Farmers and ranchers can still do other things on their land, but theyre being paid store water as well. We think thats a great answer. We think thats a good start. He said these are extremely serious times and these are extremely serious issues. We need leaders who are serious about finding solutions, and he believes that farm bureaus have the leaders to do just that. Joiner closed by thanking the group for their commitment to agriculture. The prizes were actually forged from the evenings dcor mum arrangements, giant ferns and scarecrows, baskets filled with goodies and caps. Members took part in a bidding battle as well, vying for some of the favored cakes on display everything from chocolate to Italian cream. Proceeds from the cake auction will go to the Womens Health Fund, said Bondurant. For more information about the Sumter County Farm Bureau, call 352-7934545.

F or all of us who love our pets, getting up close and personal can be a stinky problem when our pets have bad breath. Although some cases are not cause for concern, others may have an underlying cause of more serious problems. In some cases, as with teething kittens and puppies, a bacterium collects on the gum line as baby teeth are making way for adult teeth to move in. This typically lasts just a couple of months. Periodontal and oral diseases are more serious conditions that will cause damage to your pets health. Most common is periodontal disease. Studies have found this in 80 percent of dogs and cats after the age of 3. Bacteria will form as plaque causing irritating gingivitis. The painful condition of periodontal disease progresses from this point, which can cause tooth loss, and heart, kidney, and liver damage. There are several oral diseases that can cause bad breath. Cancerous or benign masses may grow in the mouth causing a foul order. Gingival hyperplasia is a condition where the gums overgrow, causing bumps and crevices where bacteria will accumulate. Common to felines is stomaitis, which causes painful inflammation of the gums and mouth tissue. Gastrointestinal and metabolic disease may be the root of some bad breath. Unhealthy esophagus, stomach, and intestines, along with kidney disease can be serious underlying causes of bad breath. So what can you do? Give your pet plaque reducing treats. Supply your pet with toys that are designed specifically to reduce plaque. Hopefully, you can brush your dog or kittys teeth. However, be sure to use toothpaste specifically for pets only. There are breath freshening products on the market, but covering up the problem without knowing the cause can have dire consequences. It is wise to have your veterinarian exam your pet to determine the cause of the bad breath, and what the best form of treatment should be. By taking an active roll in you pets health, you and your furry companion will have many happy and healthy years together.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 27, 2011, P AGE 21 Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 224 Anglers Bass Fishing 203 Bass caught 247 First, let me begin this weeks report with a pretournament interview with Tournament Director Johnny Lockabee. Johnny told me that the Castaways Bass Club consists of approximately 30 to 35 teams consisting of 2 anglers. All boats must be 17 ft in length or less and a maximum of a 40 horsepower motor. I asked Johnny where the club is based and he told me Lutz, Florida. They are looking to add club members. The cost is $15 per person. More information can be found by checking their website at Castaways.com or call tournament director, Johnny Lockabee at 8138335787. To start with, weve got Josh McGuire with a 6lb Bass that he caught on a watermelon seed worm over in front of Colemans Landing, Ron and his little boy were having a father and son day. Dale Gray was out fishing Thursday morning on the east side of the lake in Warnell Creek and caught this nice 8.8lb Bass on a Blue trick worm. I should point out that Dale coached high school football here in Bushnell, Florida for many years and went out on top. Saturday Oct. 22 offered a beautiful day of fishing for Castaways Bass Fishing Club. Kenny and Robin Cook took the Clubs classic for the year with a five fish total of 11.29 lbs with their largest catch weighing 4.10. The team of Bryan Howard and Jimmy Lockaby came away with 2nd place with a total catch of 10.81 lbs. Bryan Howards big fish of the day weighed in at 4.10 lbs as well. In third place, Collegiate National Champion Casey ODonnell and his partner, Pat ODonnell weighed in at a total of 10.61 lbs with Casey ODonells big fish an impressive 5.33 lbs. Rounding out the top four, Robbie McGohon and Marlin Crowder caught a total weight of 7.84 pounds. Collectively, the club used a mixture of Watermelon Red Rage tails, Rattletraps and a lipless crankbaits that run in 4 feet of water. Fisherman from the association claimed their success from the mouths of the river outlets. Association Director Johnny Lockaby ended the successful day of fishing by stating: Tracys Point Fishing Lodge did a great job in helping us with our end of the year Classic fishing tournament. The folks there are friendly and do everything they can to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. Thanks so much! In summary, the fishing has been great, the water level is good, you will have no problem launching any boat from bass boats to pontoons and there is plenty of parking conveniently located to the boat ramp. The water temperature is perfect for crappie fishing and weve got everything you need in our bait shop to fill your boat with these delectable beauties including live minnows, jigs, etc. so grab your pole, load your boat and come on down to Tracys Point Fishing Lodge.Good luck and good fishin!

P AGE 22SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY O CTOBER 27, 2011 Gooden runs for 197 yards, two TDs as Wildcats win 34-7 Baker scores three touchdowns; Raiders win Shawn Baker came through in a must-win game Friday. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound running back ran for 188 yards on 25 carries, scored two touchdowns running and had an 86-yard kickoff return for a score. With Baker handling most of the scoring, South Sumter beat Mount Dora 26-20 in a Class 4A-District 4 game in Mount Dora. The Raiders are now 3-0 in district competition and will play Keystone Heights Friday night in Bushnell for the district title. South Sumter is now 6-2 overall. Mount Dora had a Michael Vick-type of quarterback in Vegas Harley and Mount Dora ran for 224 yards and passed for 216 yards. One relieved coach was South Sumter High head football coach Inman Sherman. We were winning 26-14 and had to hold on to win, Sherman said. Our defense was working. Mount Dora has a kid named Vegas Harley. We had to play really well to contain him. We have had some stressful ones. Mistakes on our part made them more stressful. Some penalties hurt. We shot ourselves on the foot. Shawn Baker played pretty well. We got a special team touchdown on kickoff. Bryce Mobley had some great punts. He (Harley) is one of the best players in the state. He is 6-foot-2, weighs 200 pounds and runs a 4.5 40. He plays like Michael Vick. He is dangerous. The Raiders were very grateful for an offensive linemans play. The Offensive Player of the Game was Chance Edwards, an offensive tackle, Sherman said. He had three pancake blocks. He also had three studio blocks. He drives them out of the picture. He is 6-5, 350 pounds. This is his first year of playing. He has gotten better every week. All of our coaches are excited about what he can be. Defensive player of the game was Keanu Neal. Neal had an interception plus six solo tackles and two assists. He had a spectacular game, said the coach. He is a difference maker. He is faster than anyone else. If you ever want to watch an exciting player, come to watch 42. He is worth the price of admission. Davey Vera had 11 solo tackles and two assists. Tevin Jones had seven solo tackles. The clich Big applies to Fridays game. Keystone Heights upset Bradford 19-18 last week. They have one district loss. We play then for the district championship, said Sherman. Whoever wins this game is the distri8ct champion. The strength of the team is they are wellcoached. The quarterback makes good throws. They have a tailback that averages 6 yards per carry. They are normally the district champions. Some fans may want to buy a raffle ticket for tonights game. This is Senior Night, Sherman said. The Big 10 Raffle Drawing will be held at halftime. The South Sumter High School Booster Club puts that on. Tickets are #40. We have a few left. We are giving away a flat screen TV, a Yeti cooler. The Wildwood High football team is riding Jalen Goodens running, the offensive lines blocking and excellent defense to some excellent high school football. Thursday, the Wildcats beat Pierson Taylor 34-7 in an away game. Gooden ran for 197 yards and scored two touchdowns. Sean Hensley remains injured but Shawn Aten is doing well playing in his stead. The offense played well, said Wildcat head coach Matt LaBranche. Shawn Aten did a great job at quarterback. The defense was loaded with heroes with impressive statistics. Linebackers Elliot West and Jalen Ishall both had 10 tackles for the Wildcats. Defensive backs Kendrick Brown and Marquice Mitchell both picked off passes. Brown also made five tackles. Defensive lineman Byron Matthews had two sacks. When a defense piles on those kinds of statistics, it usually means a win. The defense played well, said LaBranche. Perhaps, the best news for the Wildcats is that they have a bye week. They dont have to play again until they face The Villages Friday Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Since the Villages are just a few miles down the road, this is almost like a home game but it will be played on The Villages exquisite facility. Wildwood is very familiar with the Buffaloes and this wont be an easy contest. They will need Gooden to eat up defensive players and the offensive line to pancake their opponents. The defense will also have to be at its best. The Villages are wellcoached, said LaBranche. They are very disciplined. They will be tough. The Wildcats have an open week to try to heal up their injuries and give Gooden two weeks to rest up. The Wildcats will finish their regular season Thursday, Nov. 10 with a home game against Orangewood Christian.

The anticipated need for The Salvation Armys services is not expected to be reduced anytime soon which is why the organization is moving quickly to meet those needs and create even more community services. A campaign is under way to build a 30,000square-foot facility, approximately five times the size of the Salvation Armys current Leesburg headquarters, in order to accommodate the organizations increasing demand for its almost daily meal service for the needy and senior citizens. While the facility will be in Lake County, Sumter County residents are welcome, said Salvation Army Major Tony Barrington. Sumter residents will continue to receive services provided by the agencys Bushnell branch at 870 N. Main St., he said. The Salvation Armys main goal is to help people with basic emergency needs, Barrington said. The agency can provide food assistance, utility and water assistance, rent assistance in emergency situations and clothing to name a few. The Bushnell facility is open from 8:30 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 8:30 a.m. until noon on Friday. They can be reached at 568-2284. The new $6 million facility planned for Leesburg will also offer classrooms, meeting space, a chapel, gymnasium, computer lab and other multi-use rooms for Salvation Army programs. The Salvation Army conducted a needs assessment of the community in 2009 and the message overwhelmingly was that the community needs more wholesome, safe programs for children, said Barrington. The new facility will allow us to meet that need with afterschool tutoring and fun activities, music lessons, vacation Bible school and more. In Bushnell, the Main Street branch is operating an afterschool program but additional students are welcome to attend, he said. A Lake Panasoffkee man died this past weekend after being struck by a Dodge van last Wednesday night, just after 9 p.m., according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. George Romer III, 31, was riding his Raleigh Coronado bicycle east along C.R. 470, near C.R. 400, when he was struck. According to the FHP report, the driver of the van, Ronald L. Wolford Jr., 49. stopped the van after the collision and his passenger exited the vehicle to render aid to Romer. When a Sumter County deputy arrived, Wolford allegedly fled the scene and travelled to his own residence where he was later arrested on charges of driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a crash with injuries. Romer was flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center with critical injuries, but died over the weekend. Since Romers death, the charges against Wolford have been upgraded. He is charged with DUImanslaughter, DUI-property damage and leaving the scene of a crash, according to the report. The incident remains under investigation. I N S I D E Making a difference Ronald L. Wolford Jr. BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Lake Panasoffkee man died this past weekend after being struck by a Dodge van last Wednesday night, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Christina Richardson likes her new front door. Shes pretty pleased with the new windows and the new water heater too. At 97, Richardson had some problems at her Wildwood home that needed to be solved. The life-long Wildwood resident had drafts through her old windows and her front door had seen better days. The door had been damaged and wasnt efficient for dealing with weather conditions. On a limited income, making repairs like replacing doors, a water heater and windows was cost prohibitive, she said. I never could have afforded it without help, Richardson said. Help came by way of the Mid-Florida Community Services Weatherization Department. The department offers a federally-funded Weatherization Assistance Program to help eligible low-income families improve the energy Kenny Ryan Davidson Man arrested for sexual battery on teen Detectives arrested a Center Hill man on 10 counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child, according to a Sumter Countys sheriffs report. Authorities believe Kenny Ryan Davidson, 22, had 10 sexual encounters with the unidentified 14 year-old girl over the past month and the incidents took place at either the victims residence or Davidsons Center Hill residence, according to the report. The investigation was initiated after the victims parent contacted the sheriffs office. Davidson was on probation for grand theft at the time of his arrest. He is in the Sumter County Detention Center where he is being held without bond.

PAGE2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER27, 2011 The campaign to build the new facility, led by two prominent Lake County businessmen, will officially kick off in November with a team of more than 40 dedicated volunteers canvassing the community to educate residents about the Salvation Armys services and to raise money for the project. Attorney Archie Lowry of the firm Potter, Clement, Lowry and First National Bank of Mt. Dora vice president William Binneveld are enthusiastic soldiers in this effort. Its likely that many residents are unaware of the extent of the Salvation Armys programs in our community, said Bill Binneveld, campaign co-chair. Supporting this campaign is a small price to pay considering the potential impact if the Salvation Army could not provide the social services it offers every day. Bill and I are honored to lead this campaign because it truly benefits all of Lake and Sumter counties, said Archie Lowry, campaign co-chair. We are optimistic that the community will step up to help so that we can begin construction in early 2013. The Salvation Army has already purchased 10 acres on Leesburgs South Street, approximately one mile from the current headquarters. With some trusts and grants already in the bank, Major Barrington anticipates needing to raise approximately $3 million to cover construction costs. A donation to the Salvation Army is actually an investment in the community, said Barrington. Aside from our programs that benefit the community, we will make our beautiful new building available to organizations and groups for their benefit. About the Salvation Army The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar spent is used to carry out those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.

Police report Suspects arrested in attempted burglary Detectives arrested two men last week, after they allegedly attempted to burglarize a Mabel area home. Christopher Garcia, 31, of Webster and Thomas M. Fussell, 31, of Bushnell were arrested after the homeowner reported the incident to the sheriffs office, according to a sheriffs report. According to authorities, the men attempted to burglarize a home on C.R. 772, but were unsuccessful in gaining entry. The homeowners video surveillance system captured the images of suspects trying to pry open a door with what appears to be a screwdriver at about 1:20 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20. The video played an important part in leading detectives to the identity of the two men. Both men, arrested for attempted burglary and criminal mischief, are being held in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond. Garcia and Fussell were facing charges in unrelated cases and were out on bond when they were arrested. Thomas M. Fussell Christopher Garcia The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a Monday morning crash that killed one man and injured two others. Investigators were still attempting to confirm the victims identity at press time. According to an FHP report, it was just after 8 a.m. Monday when the driver of a 2008 Toyota Prius was travelling south on C.R. 475 at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of S.R. 44. The driver reportedly drove around a tractor-trailer that was stopped at the sign and headed into the intersection, where a Ford light-armored car carrier was traveling west on S.R. 44 in the inside lane. The front, right corner of the armored car struck the left side of the Prius, then both vehicles traveled off the north shoulder and caught fire. The driver of the Prius was not able to get out of the vehicle and died from his injuries at the crash, according to the report. Jimmy Colon, the driver of the armored car, and his passenger Franklin Espinal received minor injuries. The crash remains under investigation.Man dies, two others injured in car crash The Sumter Campus Library is located in Sumterville. It is open to all residents of Sumter County.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER27, 2011 Parents placing children at risk New parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccine-preventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health.Citrus County Chronicle Thank youProvidence Baptist Church would like to say thank you to all those who stopped by our tents at the Bushnell Fall Festival! We enjoyed meeting and getting to know all of you! We were able to distribute 2,000 bottles of water and many tracts containing the Gospel. Seventeen individuals professed that they had accepted Christ as their Savior! We also had several drawings. The kids and teens guessed the number of candies in jars for a chance to win them all! We had 2 winners! In the 11 and under age group Naudya won by guessing that there were 400 candy corns in the jar. There were exactly 400! In the 12 and older group Alexia won by guessing there were 2,000 M&Ms in the jar. There were 1,820. Congratulations girls! There were also four adult winners: Amanda of Webster, James of Land o Lakes, Dustin of Bushnell, and Michael of Webster. Each of them won a $25 gift card! Congratulations to all of you! Providence Baptist ChurchThank you from WebsterI would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people and organizations who have so graciously given of their time, talents and materials to make a difference in Webster. This is especially appropriate this week during Make A Difference Week, Oct. 16-22. The culmination of the week is Saturday, Oct. 22. It is during this day that a group of volunteers gathered by the Webster Community Hall at 9 a.m. to inaugurate the first Community Vegetable Garden. We have named our beautification project Webster in Bloom. In a little over six months, volunteers have transformed many a drab area into a beautiful and colorful spot. Again many thanks go out to the volunteers, persons and organizations who have donated pots, plants and potting soil to make this project a huge success. You have all Made A Big Difference in Webster! Gratefully, Michael Harris, Parks and Recreation City of Webster Commissioner SECO employees pledge $50,068 to United Way Sumter Electric Cooperative has completed its 2011-2012 United Way campaign and its community-minded employees have pledged $50,068 to assist those less fortunate in the Co-ops seven county service territory. SECO employees choose where their individual donations go and the breakdown for the current area United Way campaigns is as follows: Lake & Sumter Counties $27,322 Marion County $13,766 Citrus County .. $ 5,860 Other counties $ 3,120 Total ... $50,068 Our employees face many of the same economic challenges that our member/customers are facing. However, despite the current economic climate, they have certainly not abandoned their tradition of commitment to the communities we serve and the people who live within them, said SECO CEO Jim Duncan. I am very proud of them for their support of United Way, but its also important to mention that our employees are involved in a wide variety of humanitarian and community causes and events throughout the year. They do so by donating their time, talents and monetary support, he concluded. The Co-op also has its own humanitarian programs such as the SECO Angel Fund and the SECO Gatekeeper Program. Both programs have lent support to literally thousands of people who were in need of help.

Again this year the Samaritans Purse is sponsoring Operation Christmas Child which sends small shoe boxes to waiting children around the world. These shoe boxes are filled with school supplies such as pens, pencils, and sharpeners, crayons, stamp and ink pad; small toys such as small cars, dolls, harmonicas, yoyos, jump ropes; hygiene items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, mild bar soap (in a plastic bag) combs, washcloths; other items such as Tshirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry. It is easier to remember what not to include says Aldene Thomas coordinator for the Baptist Church in Bushnell, Do NOT include anything that could break, melt (such as chocolate) or spill in transit. Things such as glass bottles of anything, aerosol cans, used or damaged items, or war related toys, and interesting enough toy snakes were excluded last year. Just pack a shoe box full of things your kids would enjoy if they did not have electricity. Everyone can participate by packing a box or boxes of small items for children and bringing them to the 1st Baptist Church in Bushnell on Anderson Street, the 1st Baptist Church in Lake Panasoffkee on Hwy. 470, or the 1st Baptist Church of Wildwood on Oxford Street in Wildwood include $7 check or money order to cover cost of shipping. Shoe boxes can be dropped off at the Church Offices. Boxes may be packed for either a boy or a girl, also ages are 2 to 4 years old, 5 to 9 years old, or 10 to 14 years old. If a box is designated for a specific sex and age it will not be repacked, if items come for multiple ages separate boxes may be assembled at the various locations. If you would like to track where your box goes you may make your donation on line at www.samaritanspurse.org/ezgive. A label will be generated that should be attached to the box and a response will be sent to the individual indicating what country that box was sent to. Aldene Thomas says she encourages families to fill the shoe boxes as a family activity, allowing each child to add gifts to the total. We have so much in America that we need to take time with our families and appreciate all that we have. Our children need to be able to participate in giving and seeing that other children have so little. The shoe boxes in many countries act as storage places for these few personal items. In Bushnell the ladies of the church also make up small bags for the children to carry their items to school. The shoe boxes are too flimsy for childrens active lifestyles. The project is headed by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and is non-denominational. Mr. Graham began Samaritans Purse as a relief organization in 1993 and found so many children in many areas that had nothing. He then began an annual program just for the children in underprivileged countries called Operation Christmas Child since then 86 million gift-filled shoe boxes have been sent to hurting children around the world. One little boy said his shoe box was the first thing he ever owned. You often hear us use the phrase the power of a simple gift. That describes Operation Christmas Child in a nutshell. Last year we delivered 8.2 million gift-filled shoe boxes to hurting children in places like earthquake devastated Haiti and war-scarred Sudan, said founder Franklin Graham. How big is a shoe box?

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER27, 2011, PAGE5 efficiency of their homes. Richardsons family members helped her fill out an application requesting assistance and she met the guidelines to have the improvements made without cost. Brenda Mobley, program director, said a number of improvements were made to Richardsons home to help reduce her energy bill. Besides those mentioned, the agency also recharged her air conditioning system, insulated her hot water heater, replaced eight windows, installed energy-saving light bulbs to name a few. While Mid-Florida Community Services is based in Brooksville, the agency provides service to five counties, including Sumter, Mobley said. She encourages low-income residents to contact the agency if they have need of the agencys services. In 2009, the agency provided assistance to 1,136 homes in the five-county area and additional stimulus funding from the federal government means more homeowners can take advantage of the program, Mobley said. Its a very worthwhile service and were looking for more Sumter residents to join it, she said. For more information about MidFlorida Community Services weatherization program call 352-796-1427.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER27, 2011, PAGE7 BOB REICHMAN/Sumter County TimesMary Lou Jordan peels a Granny Smith apple in preparation of making the pies. Edra Nell Courtney and Joy Pitney are two of the volunteers that help make the pies. RELIGION Martha Polk and Edie White work on the pie crusts while other volunteers peel apples. Tachycardia is a dangerously rapid heartbeat, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat and dead is no heartbeat at all and I had all three recently. That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently. I lost my camera. And by my camera I mean the one the newspaper gave me to use and not mine to keep. I got it back, but for about 40 minutes my heart raced and flip-flopped and stopped beating (if only in my imagination) because I thought it was gone, forever into oblivion, gone, gone, gone. I had it with me when I got on the plane to Washington, D.C. with the World War II veterans I was traveling with because I took their pictures. I had it the whole day I was in D.C. because I took pictures, and I took pictures once we returned to the airport in Clearwater. After I left the airport I got into a cab to take me less than five miles away to a restaurant where I was to meet my husband. Paid the cab driver, greeted the husband. Kiss, kiss, blah, blah. Want to see my pictures?, I asked. Tired, yet wound up from a long day of travel, I opened my purse to get the camera that hadnt been out of my reach all day and it. Was. Not. There. I panicked. I prayed, but I still panicked. Not only was the camera not mine, but it had photos on it from my trip with the veterans that I needed and couldnt retake. While I panicked I walked around in circles in the restaurant and asked a waitress for a phone book I concluded I took the camera out of my purse to reach the $10 bill I had tucked away for cab fare. Someone got the cab company number for me and I called, most likely rambling incoherently to the poor woman who answered the phone. Thankfully she took pity on me, put me on hold and called all her drivers and asked who had driven a crazy lady from the St. Petersburg-Clearwater airport to the nearby Beef OBradys. Since there had been only one, he called in, said he found my camera on the seat and within 10 minutes delivered it to me. And the angels sang! I gave him twice the fare amount and thanked him profusely. I may have even offered him my firstborn. I know I cried with relief and gratitude mixed with tiredness and slight insanity. (He looked scared as he left.) My heart returned to its regular rhythm and all was and is well. However, for that brief time, all was not well. I had lost something important and during its time of lostness it was all I could think of. All I wanted was to find it. I was hungry, thirsty and tired, but how could I eat, drink or sleep until it was found? Jesus told stories about lost things. In the Bible when something is repeated its God saying, Listen up yall this ones important. Take notes. One story was about a lost sheep and another about a lost coin. He talked about the extent the shepherd goes to find just one lost sheep, even leaving his flock of 99 others to retrieve it its that precious to him. The woman who lost her coin lights a lamp, sweeps her house clean and doesnt stop searching until she finds it and then calls all her friends and says, Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin! (Luke 15:9). Im with you, sister. I feel your joy. However, Jesus wasnt talking about sheep and coins, but about us, and not so much about our lostness as about Gods intense focus on finding us. While hes not wringing his hands, walking in circles and rambling on the phone to cab company dispatchers, he wants his lost children found. As badly as I wanted to find my camera, how much more does God want his children safely home with him? The Bible says the angels sing when one sinner repents. Losing my camera and then having it returned to me gave me a glimpse into how God might feel about us. Its good to be found!Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace. She can be reached at 1-352-564-2927, Monday through Thursday, or via email nancykennedy@sctnews.com. Martha Polk gets the dough ready. Thursday is Pie Day Its Thursday and that means Pie Day for some members of the Church of Christ in Wildwood. Once a week, a handful of church volunteers come together on Thursdays to lend their creative talents to making apple pies inside the churchs new fellowship hall.. Each volunteer brings certain ingredients and together the group starts the pie-making process. We make them from scratch, says pie-maker Martha Polk. We all bring something and we buy our own ingredients. While shes busy preparing the dough, other volunteers are busy peeling Granny Smith apples for the four pies they will be distributing. About a year ago, members of the congregation started making the pies for shut-ins and needy community members. They also throw in a pie to people who have recently moved into the area or are new to the church. While the pies are baking, the volunteers have devotions. The idea was the brainchild of church member June Crenshaw, Polk said, as a way to provide a service to the community. Grace notes BOBREICHMAN Editor CHURCH OF CHRIST Lost and found Nancy Kennedy Special to theTimes Members of the Knights of Columbus from St. Vincent de Paul parish in Wildwood recently installed 42 Respect Life crosses along the church property line on C.R. 462.

Thanks to all participants for coming out and supporting the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce and their effort to promote a scholarship program for the Sumter County High School Seniors. CHAMBER CONNECTION Our byway is old Florida, real Florida. We want to tell the story, we dont want it to be lost, said Brooke Moffis, who spoke on behalf of the Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway Corridor Advocacy Group at the October Chamber Lunch Exchange in Bushnell. Brooke represents the UF/IFAS Sumter County Extension office, and joins others from industries ranging from small business owners, retirees, concerned citizens and more to make up the Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway Corridor Advocacy Group. The journey of The Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway began in 2009 as a grass roots organization of concerned citizens who represent the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce, Sumter County Public Works, and UF/IFAS Extension. Pursuit of the Florida Department of Transportations Scenic designation through the Florida Scenic Highways Program quickly followed. The roads that comprise the proposed Byway include a cross section of the natural beauty that Sumter County offers. The Byway traverses pastoral farmlands, cattle ranches and horse farms with lush open fields. The Byway represents the charm and resources that our community desires to preserve, said Moffis. Its going to be lost if we dont take action to preserve it. For more information on the Byway or to write a letter of support, contact Diane Boorum at the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce.

Sumter County Community Comes Together to Plan First Sumter County Beef and Boogie Festival A coalition of businesses, community leaders and residents has come together to make the first Sumter County Beef and Boogie Festival possible. From business sponsors large and small, to a diverse and active committee that has accepted the daunting task of producing a first-of-its-kind event in Sumter County, the Beef and Boogie Festival represents the work of an exciting partnership of hands-on contributors. Sumter County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Andrew Cripps said, The idea of putting on this festival, which is a first for our chamber, was frightening at first. There were so many elements that we had not tackled before. In fact, aside from the annual Sumter County Fair, there hasnt been a comparable event in Sumter County that I know of. And we are doing it in a large and important venue, but one that isnt naturally set up for a gated festival. Without such a large group of people, each willing to roll up their sleeves and take a chunk of the responsibility, we could never pull this off. Im proud to be part of that group. Regardless of the success of the festival, it is a wonderful experience to work with all these capable and unselfish people, and to see the event come together, Cripps said.

Fun was the theme at Webster Elementary School on Oct. 12 as staff and students celebrated their fourth annual Jump Rope for Heart assembly. This years JRFH campaign was WES most successful yet. The students shattered records and goals by collecting over $3,000 in donations to fight heart disease. Kindergartner Mark DeCosta raised $450, which is a JRFH record high amongst Webster students. A whopping 43 percent of WES 647 students participated. Superintendent Rick Shirley got slimed. Teachers hammered their way to frozen T-shirt championships, battled for position in musical chairs, and wrapped each other in toilet paper. The students laughed, cheered and chanted. Alejandra Cretul, JRFH youth marketing director for Levy, Citrus, Sumter and Marion counties, said, It is apparent that this is a very special school with teachers and staff that truly care about each other and their students. Websters event is one of the best that I have seen for creativity, spirit, staff involvement and student participation. In the weeks leading up to the assembly PE aides Virginia Moffitt and Carol Huggins worked feverishly behind the scenes as the de facto accountants. Huggins and Moffitt attributed every dollar donated to the student it came from. Students earned skip-a-laps, water bottles, and peace of mind. The driving force behind it all is PE Coach Kay VandeMark. For the last four years VandeMark has been organizing annual school-wide JRFH fundraisers at Webster. VandeMark and PE Coach Steve Strange hype the big fun day to the students, set up all the vents, and make every part of Jump rope for Heart in Webster work. So, another year of Jump rope for Heart concluded at Webster Elementary School. The staff and students are already thinking about next year.

Carson, Larry Wells and Tim Edwards with guest speaker Mike Joiner Kimber Sarver with her daughter, Sara, serving up treats. Hundreds of ranchers, farmers and other guests chatted as the annual Sumter County Bureau banquet got underway earlier this month. The annual dinner was held on Thursday, Oct. 13 at the Sumter County Fairgrounds with 325 people attending. Designed as a fun and informative evening for members, the night included dinner, news from the state and national level and a collection of door prizes. Wildwood High School alumnus Mike Joiner served as guest speaker for the event. Joiner is the Assistant Commissioner and Chief of Staff of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. He touched on several subjects for guests including the effort to get even more local produce out to the state and nation. He talked about Wholesome Way a program partner that doubles the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables provided to residents who have the SNAP card. SNAP is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or what was the former Food Stamp Program. SNAP focuses on nutrition and benefit amounts. As for the farm bureau, each county has their own and many charge for the annual dinner, but the Sumter County bureau provides the dinner as one of the membership benefits, according to secretary Laura Bondurant. Joiner went on to say that Florida still provides 85 percent of the nations winter produce and is known as the Winter Basket. He shared some of the effort theyre making on behalf of agriculture at the state and national level. The most critical issue were facing is water, he said. One of the challenges is the water management districts making decisions for the growers. One of the successes is a program called Payment for Environmental Services paying land owners to store water on their land. Farmers and ranchers can still do other things on their land, but theyre being paid store water as well. We think thats a great answer. We think thats a good start. He said these are extremely serious times and these are extremely serious issues. We need leaders who are serious about finding solutions, and he believes that farm bureaus have the leaders to do just that. Joiner closed by thanking the group for their commitment to agriculture. The prizes were actually forged from the evenings dcor mum arrangements, giant ferns and scarecrows, baskets filled with goodies and caps. Members took part in a bidding battle as well, vying for some of the favored cakes on display everything from chocolate to Italian cream. Proceeds from the cake auction will go to the Womens Health Fund, said Bondurant.

TOM SWAIN SUMTER COUNTY TAX COLLECTOR Sumter calendar Pioneer Day Celebration is all fun and games In celebration of the spirited 19th-century adventurers who settled Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Chinsegut Conservation Center in Brooksville will host its 16th annual Pioneer Day Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 5. Festivities will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The family-oriented celebration is a festive exploration of Floridas cultural and historical past. Participants will see and learn about the conservation legacy of our ancestors and how to continue that heritage by naturally recycling, catching water in a wooden rain barrel and making the best use of native materials. And, better yet, its all fun and games. Visitors will experience the age-old sights, sounds and smells of early peninsular Florida existence while listening to live music of the period; seeing archery demonstrations; participating in using a two-man saw; and enjoying demonstrations of cow milking, quilting, spinning, rope making, tanning and other pioneer survival skills. Learn about making candles and soap and weaving baskets, and listen to an expert turkey caller work a homemade box call. The festival also features freshly squeezed lemonade, roasted corn and other period foods. The Chinsegut Conservation Center is on land once homesteaded by the Bishops, an honest-togoodness pioneer family, the remnants of whose 19th-century dwelling still exist on the property. Authentic re-creations of a Seminole Indian camp and the Bishop family living history demonstration will bring to life the spirit that was Florida in the 1800s. Activities will occur throughout the day. Lunch and merchandise will be available for purchase from exhibitors. In-service credit is available for teachers with county approval. Free parking for the event will be available, with shuttles running from the parking area at the Withlacoochee Training Center, approximately one mile north of the intersection of U.S. 41 and County Road 476. On-site parking at the Conservation Center is available for people with disabilities. A suggested donation of $1 per person helps support Chinsegut programs, including Pioneer Day.

For all of us who love our pets, getting up close and personal can be a stinky problem when our pets have bad breath. Although some cases are not cause for concern, others may have an underlying cause of more serious problems. In some cases, as with teething kittens and puppies, a bacterium collects on the gum line as baby teeth are making way for adult teeth to move in. This typically lasts just a couple of months. Periodontal and oral diseases are more serious conditions that will cause damage to your pets health. Most common is periodontal disease. Studies have found this in 80 percent of dogs and cats after the age of 3. Bacteria will form as plaque causing irritating gingivitis. The painful condition of periodontal disease progresses from this point, which can cause tooth loss, and heart, kidney, and liver damage. There are several oral diseases that can cause bad breath. Cancerous or benign masses may grow in the mouth causing a foul order. Gingival hyperplasia is a condition where the gums overgrow, causing bumps and crevices where bacteria will accumulate. Common to felines is stomaitis, which causes painful inflammation of the gums and mouth tissue. Gastrointestinal and metabolic disease may be the root of some bad breath. Unhealthy esophagus, stomach, and intestines, along with kidney disease can be serious underlying causes of bad breath. So what can you do? Give your pet plaque reducing treats. Supply your pet with toys that are designed specifically to reduce plaque. Hopefully, you can brush your dog or kittys teeth. However, be sure to use toothpaste specifically for pets only. There are breath freshening products on the market, but covering up the problem without knowing the cause can have dire consequences. It is wise to have your veterinarian exam your pet to determine the cause of the bad breath, and what the best form of treatment should be. By taking an active roll in you pets health, you and your furry companion will have many happy and healthy years together.

Johnny told me that the Castaways Bass Club consists of approximately 30 to 35 teams consisting of 2 anglers. All boats must be 17 ft in length or less and a maximum of a 40 horsepower motor. I asked Johnny where the club is based and he told me Lutz, Florida. They are looking to add club members. The cost is $15 per person. More information can be found by checking their website at Castaways.com or call tournament director, Johnny Lockabee at 8138335787. To start with, weve got Josh McGuire with a 6lb Bass that he caught on a watermelon seed worm over in front of Colemans Landing, Ron and his little boy were having a father and son day. Dale Gray was out fishing Thursday morning on the east side of the lake in Warnell Creek and caught this nice 8.8lb Bass on a Blue trick worm. I should point out that Dale coached high school football here in Bushnell, Florida for many years and went out on top. Saturday Oct. 22 offered a beautiful day of fishing for Castaways Bass Fishing Club. Kenny and Robin Cook took the Clubs classic for the year with a five fish total of 11.29 lbs with their largest catch weighing 4.10. The team of Bryan Howard and Jimmy Lockaby came away with 2nd place with a total catch of 10.81 lbs. Bryan Howards big fish of the day weighed in at 4.10 lbs as well.

PAGE22SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, OCTOBER27, 2011 Gooden runs for 197 yards, two TDs as Wildcats win 34-7 Baker scores three touchdowns; Raiders win Shawn Baker came through in a must-win game Friday. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound running back ran for 188 yards on 25 carries, scored two touchdowns running and had an 86-yard kickoff return for a score. With Baker handling most of the scoring, South Sumter beat Mount Dora 26-20 in a Class 4A-District 4 game in Mount Dora. The Raiders are now 3-0 in district competition and will play Keystone Heights Friday night in Bushnell for the district title. South Sumter is now 6-2 overall. Mount Dora had a Michael Vick-type of quarterback in Vegas Harley and Mount Dora ran for 224 yards and passed for 216 yards. One relieved coach was South Sumter High head football coach Inman Sherman. We were winning 26-14 and had to hold on to win, Sherman said. Our defense was working. Mount Dora has a kid named Vegas Harley. We had to play really well to contain him. We have had some stressful ones. Mistakes on our part made them more stressful. Some penalties hurt. We shot ourselves on the foot. Shawn Baker played pretty well. We got a special team touchdown on kickoff. Bryce Mobley had some great punts. He (Harley) is one of the best players in the state. He is 6-foot-2, weighs 200 pounds and runs a 4.5 40. He plays like Michael Vick. He is dangerous. The Raiders were very grateful for an offensive linemans play. The Offensive Player of the Game was Chance Edwards, an offensive tackle, Sherman said. He had three pancake blocks. He also had three studio blocks. He drives them out of the picture. He is 6-5, 350 pounds. This is his first year of playing. He has gotten better every week. All of our coaches are excited about what he can be. Defensive player of the game was Keanu Neal. Neal had an interception plus six solo tackles and two assists. He had a spectacular game, said the coach. He is a difference maker. He is faster than anyone else. If you ever want to watch an exciting player, come to watch 42. He is worth the price of admission. Davey Vera had 11 solo tackles and two assists. Tevin Jones had seven solo tackles. The clich Big applies to Fridays game. Keystone Heights upset Bradford 19-18 last week. They have one district loss. We play then for the district championship, said Sherman. Whoever wins this game is the distri8ct champion. The strength of the team is they are wellcoached. The quarterback makes good throws. They have a tailback that averages 6 yards per carry. They are normally the district champions. Some fans may want to buy a raffle ticket for tonights game. This is Senior Night, Sherman said. The Big 10 Raffle Drawing will be held at halftime. The South Sumter High School Booster Club puts that on. Tickets are #40. We have a few left. We are giving away a flat screen TV, a Yeti cooler. The Wildwood High football team is riding Jalen Goodens running, the offensive lines blocking and excellent defense to some excellent high school football. Thursday, the Wildcats beat Pierson Taylor 34-7 in an away game. Gooden ran for 197 yards and scored two touchdowns. Sean Hensley remains injured but Shawn Aten is doing well playing in his stead. The offense played well, said Wildcat head coach Matt LaBranche. Shawn Aten did a great job at quarterback. The defense was loaded with heroes with impressive statistics. Linebackers Elliot West and Jalen Ishall both had 10 tackles for the Wildcats. Defensive backs Kendrick Brown and Marquice Mitchell both picked off passes. Brown also made five tackles. Defensive lineman Byron Matthews had two sacks. When a defense piles on those kinds of statistics, it usually means a win. The defense played well, said LaBranche. Perhaps, the best news for the Wildcats is that they have a bye week. They dont have to play again until they face The Villages Friday Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Since the Villages are just a few miles down the road, this is almost like a home game but it will be played on The Villages exquisite facility. Wildwood is very familiar with the Buffaloes and this wont be an easy contest. They will need Gooden to eat up defensive players and the offensive line to pancake their opponents. The defense will also have to be at its best. The Villages are wellcoached, said LaBranche. They are very disciplined. They will be tough. The Wildcats have an open week to try to heal up their injuries and give Gooden two weeks to rest up. The Wildcats will finish their regular season Thursday, Nov. 10 with a home game against Orangewood Christian. Sumter sports LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent PATTI HENSLEY/Courtesy to Sumter County TimesThe Wildcats took Pierson Taylor last Thursday night, 34-7 in an away game. Coach Matt LaBranche said both offense and defense played well. They wont play again until Nov. 4 against The Villages.
