Support from the com-
munity for the two men
was overwhelming, Mrs.
Ruano said. "People of-
fered everything and any-
thing they could do to help.
At Bushnell City Hall
employees mourned the
loss of the young Ruano,
son of City Manager Vince
Ruano.
Employees at Bushnell
city Hall are also feeling
the sadness.
"We're like a family over
here," said Susan Noell, di-
rector of Information Sys-
tems and Customer Affairs.

As investigators search
to find the reason for a
plane crash that took the
lives of two well-known
Bushnell men, news of
their deaths has over-
whelmed the community
Ryan C. Ruano, 34, and
Sean R. McLeod, 23, were
killed when their Cirrus
SR 22 single-engine plane
crashed on Sunday, Nov
13, shortly before 6 p.m. in
the Arthur Marshall
Wildlife Preserve, accord-
ing to a Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office report.


Ruano and McLeod were
cousins. Both families
gathered on Saturday at
the Ruano ranch to cele-
brate the lives of the two
men.
According to estimates,
more than 2,000 people
turned out to honor and re-
member the cousins.
"They were such good
friends and they died to-
gether," said Ruano's
mother, Betsy


Both of the young men
were graduates of South
Summer High School and
both shared an interest in
aviation.
Ruano worked at a flight
school in Orlando and
McLeod was taking some
advanced training courses.
Both men had just re-
turned from an air show in
Stuart the Monday before
the accident, Mrs. Ruano
said.

participate in the evo-

added, "The training is
and has been multi-
faceted, incorporating a
wide-range of topics in-
cluding hose deploy-
ment, tactics, search
and rescue, fire behav-
ior, ventilation, incident
command, accountabil-
ity, air consumption and
situational awareness."
The live fire is the
culmination of six
weeks of training, and
will include defensive
attack training evolu-
tions. The live fire re-
sulted in the
destruction of the do-
nated structures.
Providing some back-
ground information,
Chief Greek offered,
"The training provided
by these acquired struc-
tures is invaluable, as it
allows firefighters to
train in actual live fire
scenarios. Most depart-

in acquired structures
many precautions must be
in place prior to com-
mencement. Most of these
precautions are outlined in
the National Fire Protec-
tion Association (NFPA)
1403 Standard for Live Fire
Training. While not only a
good safety standard to fol-


low, it is a required man-
date in the State of Florida.
When preparing for such
training, SCF & EMS offi-
clals remember the two
firefighters who were
killed in Osceola County in
July of 2002 during a simi-
lar training exercise.
Though we understand and


respect the dangers associ-
ated with live fire training,
we also realize the impor-
tance of conducting such
training to prepare our
personnel for fire combat
situations. By following all
of the safety precautions
outlined in the NFPA 1403
and Florida statutes, we


believe we can provide a
safe and invaluable train-
ing for our personnel, en-
abling us to better prepare
them to serve Sumter
County citizens with the
highest level of profi-
ciency."
"Sumter County greatly
appreciate the donation of


these buildings by Turkey
Run 2 LLC as it provides an
opportunity to train per-
sonnel locally, which re-
sults in a saving over
having to send personnel
out of the county to partici-
pate in such developmen-
tal exercises," said Chief

Time running out for Iran
R cntl the United Nation
International Atomic Energy
Aency ewhroa aoronuuhlearnveesti-
opment program, concluded Iran


images, overwhelmingly points to
the manufacture of nuclear
weapons within the short term,
probably on the order of a num-
ber of months to a year. U.S. intel-
ligence information corroborates
this assessment.
The prospect of a nuclear
armed Iran, along with the capa-
bility to deliver the nuclear
weapons via missile systems,
poses a threat to the Middle East
and Europe. Iran will be able to
strike other Arab countries, Israel
and parts of Europe.
Other totalitarian countries
with nuclear weapons, like North
Korea, China, Russia, and Pak-
istan, have respect for the capa-
bilities of opposing forces armed
with nuclear weapons. They know
retaliation will be swift and com-
prehensive to a nuclear attack
Unfortunately, Iran is governed
by irrational leaders who live in a
closed society cut off from reality,
and who believe in the use of mil-
itary force to achieve their aims.
Sanctions and diplomacy have
not worked to deter belligerent
Iran from developing nuclear
weapons. The countdown to pre-
vent Iran from possibly launching
nuclear attacks is approaching ac-
tion time by threatened powers in
the Middle East.

would like to thank everyone who
supported our tournament to
raise funds for the ABC (Always

Thanksgiving is a time for
home cooking and family cele-
brations, but it can mean a
spike in your utility bill with
your oven and dishwasher run-
ning in high gear, your refrig-
erator and freezer doors
constantly being opened and
shut, and your thermostat fre-
quently adjusted to suit the
comfort of visiting guests and
family.
Try some of these sugges-
tions to minimize holiday en-
ergy costs.
Don't open the oven door,
even ifyou're curious how the
bird looks. Simply turn on the
oven light and check the bird's
status through the oven win-
dow.
Double-up and cook several
food dishes at a time, leaving
enough room for the heat to
circulate around the cook-
ware.
Turn off oven heat several
minutes before your food is
fully cooked, because enough
heat will be stored inside to
finish cooking your meal.
Turn your oven temperature
down 25 degrees when using


glass or ceramic pans.
Use your microwave, when
possible, because it uses 50
percent less energy than con-
ventional ovens.
Fire up the outdoor grill, so
you don't do all your cooking in
the kitchen,
Keep your refrigerator and
freezer doors closed as much
as possible, so cold air doesn't
escape.
Wash full loads only and use
energy-saving cycles when
using your dishwasher.
Don't let the hot water run
continuously ifyou're washing
dishes by hand.
Control your thermostat!
Managing family gatherings
and your utility bill shouldn't
only hae at Th nks iigs
Prac icing te energy-saving
tips year round can save you a
little on your utility bill, and
you'll have plenty of good news
to share with the family when
you finally carve the turkey

Give thanks every day

By Bryan Golden
Special to the Times
Thanksgiving is much more than a big meal with family
all of the good things you have. Even with all of the un-
certainty and turmoil in the world, you have so much to be
thankful for. It's important to be grateful, not just on Thanks-
giving, but each and every day. Rather than lamenting what
you feel is lacking in your life, begin each new day by devel-
oping an attitude of gratitude. Take inventory of your blessings
and you will be surprised at just how much you have to be
thankful for.
If you have enough to eat, a place to live, a way to get around,
people who care about you, or people you care about, then you
are wealthy. If you lack any of these elements, you must still be
grateful for what you do have, while striving to obtain what-
ever is absent.
Focus on all positive aspects of your life. Take nothing for
granted. Every morning, recharge your appreciation. Be happy
for everything there is, not upset over what you feel is missing.
Dreams of the future shouldn't diminish appreciation for the
present. If all you do is concentrate on what you want, you
won't enjoy today. Don't be jealous of others; what they have
has no bearing on you. You can feel bitter or resentful for a va-
riety of reasons. Perhaps you feel something is missing from
your life, things aren't going your way, or you've been treated
unfairly. You may wonder, "Why do these things always hap-
pen to me?"
Life's problems tend to dominate your thoughts, turning your
focus to what you feel is wrong. You may start to resent those
who appear to be better off. You're apt to dwell on things you
think would make your life better if you had them. If only you
had more money, more time, a bigger house, a different car, a
different job, a different boss, had picked a different career,
etc.
Once your attitude becomes one of deficiency instead of
abundance and appreciation, you can become overwhelmed
by feelings of frustration and feel like a victim. As this hap-
pens, a consuming vicious cycle starts. Being bitter or resent-
ful blows situations out of proportion. People who are bitter
frequently find that their situations deteriorate and their men-
tal and physical health decays.
There is no point to feeling bitter since it accomplishes noth-
ing, harms you and makes things worse. Filling yourself with
gratitude on a daily basis makes you feel good, while driving
out negative feelings.
Begin your practice of gratitude each morning as soon as you
wake. Every day is a great day. If you have any doubts, try miss-
ing one. Take inventory of everything, no matter how small or
seemingly insignificant, that is good in your life.
Keep things in perspective. Consider all the people who have
overcome difficulties far worse than yours. Don't be consumed
by your problems, there is always a solution. Mlamtaining an at-
titude of gratitude allows your mind to devise a resolution for
your circumstances.
Make every day a day of Thanksgiving and you will be
amazed how much better your life will become.

A night out is usually on
the agenda at the VFW
10137 on C.R. 476B.
From fried fish to


smoked ribs, the members
offer up Friday night din-
ners and Sunday morning
breakfasts and they're


open to the public.
On Friday night, they're
serving New York strip
steak dinners. The dinner
includes a baked potato
and salad for $10 per per-
son.
The time 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
and dinner is followed up
by karaoke with Wild
Willie.
Then there's Thanksgiv-
ing dinner on Thanksgiv-
ing dinner on
Thanksgiving Day. They
start serving the turkey
dinner at noon and the cost
is $5 a plate.
Publicity chairman
William Sherwood said
they offer the meals as a
way to raise funds for VFW
projects, which involve
helping the families of vet-
erans.
Sherwood also serves as
the master rib smoker for
the rib dinners.

William Sherwood serves as the master smoker for their special rib nights at the
VFW 10137. The members work to raise money to help veterans. The various
dinner events are open to the public.


Ron Alvarez works in the kitchen cooking up the
Texas toast on the grill.


"There was just so much
love a huge outpouring
from the community"
And that outpouring
came from outside the
community as well, noting
the affect they had on so
many people.
Plans are being made to
launch the Ryan Ruano
Aviation Foundation in
memory of Ryan. The
foundation will "provide
assistance for the advance-
ment of flight training and
flight experiences for those
who are less fortunate _


those who yearn for the
freedom of flight but are
burdened by financial cir-
cumstances or are termi-
nally ill or unable to
otherwise fully participate
in a pilot training pro-
gram," Mrs. Ruano said.
"We want to thank every-
one for all they did," she
said. "We celebrated their
love and passion for fly-
ing," she said of Saturday's
ceremony. "They lived life
to the fullest and enjoyed
every single minute. They
died doing what they
loved."


The single aircraft
crash happened about one
mile from the Willis
Glider Port, which is 12
miles southwest of Palm
Beach International Air-
port, according to Kath-
leen Bergen, Federal
Aviation Administration
spokeswoman,
Following the crash,
emergency workers spent


days working to recover
the wreckage and the bod-
ies of the two men, ac-
cording to the report.
The National Trans-
portation Safety Board
(NTSB) is investigating
the wreck.
As of Mlonday, not all of
the wreckage has been re-
covered, said NTSP inves-
tigator Dennis Diaz.


Another search is sched-
uled for Thursday in the
remote and isolated area
where the plane went
down, he said.
Diaz determined that it
may take another week to
complete the task and it
could take between nine
months to a year before
the investigation is final-
ized.


Chrissy Dobson volunteers her time and was hard at work on dishes.

have tried to offer support
and just let them know
they care.
Noell said the commu-
nity response was "a huge
testament" to the type of
men Ruano and McCleod
were.

I'ma person who plans ahead and I'm also pretty careful with
the money I make.
Since someday my family and I will need a reliable funeral home,
why not make my arrangements now and lock in a low price that I can
control?
The old saying is true: you can't take your money with you. But,
illI make my plans now I can make the decisions on all the details that
matter to me, including the cost, and that's like leaving more money
behind for my wife and kids.

LET)S TURN YOUR PRIORITIES INTO A PIAN.

Purcell Chapel-Beyers


Funeral Home and Cre-
matory is sponsoring the
event.
"This is the first time
that we've opened the
service to the community
at large," said funeral
home representative Tony
Kamus.
Typically, the holidays
and the first anniversaries


of a loved one's death are
the most difficult to deal
with, he said. "This helps
families deal with grief
and it helps them with the
process of coping."
The service includes in-
spiration music and a
message highlighted by an
opportunity for loved ones
to place a white dove dec-


oration with the name of
the person they wish to re-
member on the lighted
Tree of Remembrance.
A white dove decoration
will be available after the
service to take home.
The annual service has
been provided at the fu-
neral home for several
decades.


Holiday refreshments
will be served in the fel-
lowship hall after the
service.
Persons wishing to par-
ticipate are asked to call
the office at 352-793-4531
between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday so
a dove can be reserved.
Reservations must be
made by Friday, Dec. 9.

E3 Family Solutions, Inc. held our first annual golf tournament Saturday, Nov. 12
at Shady Brooke Golf Course in Sumterville. The tournament was to raise funds
for the ABC (Always the Best Choice) for Teens program which is a positive
youth development program that equips teenagers to make healthy choices and
avoid high risk activities such as drug and alcohol use, sexual activity and vi-
olence. We have been providing the ABC for Teens program to students in Lake
and Sumter Counties for over twelve years now with very positive results.
Pictured left to right are the first place team winners being presented with their
prizes by Jr. Miss Sumter County Kelly Mlyles Daran Hinnant, Gene Folkereth,
Vance Roberts and Mlike Mlatheny. The Christmas gift basket was donated by
Mlrs. Mlaggie Brock. In addition, they each won a gift certificate to Red Lobster
donated by Mlrs. Rachel Buckner and an inspirational book on golf. The second
place team winners were Phil Scarpelli, Chris Huddleston and County Com-
missioner Don Burgess. They also won gift certificates.


Sumter County Animal
Services won a $10,000
grant award from the
American Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals (ASPCA). This
project will cover the costs
of training required for An-
imal Control Officers
(ACOs) working for Sumter
County to attain the cre-
dential as "Nationally Cer-
tified Cruelty Investigator."
The training entails three
areas of animal education
- specialized veterinary,
animal cruelty (large and


small animals), and law en-
forcement. Classes are of-
fered throughout the
United States, are nation-
ally recognized, and are ac-
credited by a university.
This level of training will
improve the ability of
Sumter County Animal
Services to respond to ani-
mal cruelty, abuse, and
neglect situations and to
prosecute the perpetra-
tors. ACO Coordinator
Taberner is currently the
County's only fully-certi-
fied cruelty investigator


with others having taken
one or two of the needed
courses to attain the na-
tional credential.
Taberner said, "The
knowledge our ACOs re-
ceive from this specialized
training will propel
Sumter County to one of
the top animal control
service providers in the
State of Florida.
"All our officers will ben-
efit from the training made
possible through the
ASPCA grant," stated
Taberner

Participants were mounted and ready for the Water Glass competition to begin. Darby Oaks in Bushnell had a busy day as riders came out for competition and
education.





Ofrb OaS fUn 101891a SUCCeSS


Darby Oaks hosted
their Healthy Hoof
Beats Benefits
Horse Show and Obstacle
Schooling Day late last
month.
The day started at 9 a.m.
with open schooling. Par-
ticipants had the option to
train their horses on more
than r 50 different obsta-
cles including water
crossing, bridges, log
jumps, opening gates,
tarps, drags and more.
Later in the morning,
they hosted an open fun
show, allowing exhibitors
to test their horse's skills
in various obstacle classes
such as barrels, poles,
water glass, egg and
spoon.
Guests also watched as
Danny Hocadel, a resi-
dent of the Key Training
Center who takes part in
horse therapy, demon-
strated the smooth ride
and calm disposition of
the Tennessee Walking
Horse. An enthusiastic
crowd watched as Wayne
Conkle exhibited the high
stepping action of the Ten-
nessee Walking horse rid-
ing "I'm Showboatin."'
The horse is owned by
Curt and Lisa Steinbach.
Will Heldt of Dover
served as judge for all 194
entries in 15 classes. Each
class drew an average of
13 entries.
Exhibitors and specta-
tors enjoyed the day
which raised about $2,000
and will benefit the Key
Training Center in Inver-
ness. The center provides
much needed community
based services to over 300
developmentally disabled
adults.
The Florida Walking
and Racking Horse Asso-
ciation, the Foundation
for the Advancement and
Support of the Tennessee
Walking Show Horse, and
Unified Horse Show De-
velopment Program were
the major sponsors of the
show, but support was also

The Southwest Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict is offering six easy
ways to prepare for your
holiday meals and parties
without running up your
water bill.
"It is especially impor-
tant to conserve water dur-
ing the holidays, as they
fall within our traditional
dry season," said Robyn
Felix, the District's media
relations manager. "We can
all make a difference by in-
corporating a few simple
tips into our routines."
During the holidays,
water plays a role in every-
thing from food prepara-
tion to the clean-up
process. Here's how to in-
corporate water conserva-


tion into your holiday
preparations:
SDefrost frozen foods in
the refrigerator or the mi-
crowave instead of running
hot water over them.
SRinse vegetables and
fruits in a sink or pan filled
with water instead of
under running water. This
water can then be reused
to water houseplants. A
running faucet can use up
to 4 gallons per minute.
HWhen washing dishes
by hand, fill one sink or
basin with soapy water and
fill the rinsing sink one-
third to one-half full. Avoid
letting the water run con-
tinuously in the rinsing
sink.
HSelect the proper size


pans for cooking. Large
pans require more cooking
water than may be neces-

dressing up any dish.

Report by Donna and
Steve Lind
Anglers on Lake
Panasoflkee 204
Anglers Bass
Fishing 183
Bass caught 231
Bass Released 207
Heh I know that we're
just a fishing lodge, but we
have developed a niche for
hosting weddings.
We just hosted the first of
4 (coming up) this past
week end (3 to go) and boy
what a shindig it was with
over 150 guests and a
theme of "Florida
Cracker" these folks were
living proof that the days of
the past; e.g. when I was a
kid (I'm 60 now) are still
alive and well, especially
in Lake Panasoffkee.
I'm not exaggerating,
these folks spent 24 hours
straight (round the clock)
just decorating for this gala
event.
As we enter the holiday
season, in particular
Thanksgiving, I think it is
ever so important to focus
on how fortunate we all are
to live in a country where
we can live free, even in
times of poor economy and
all of the other bad stuff
that we could focus on, we
are able to sit safely with
our families, enjoy some
Turkey and dressing and
most of all "family"
Tracy's Point congratu-
lates the wedding of Bob
and Amber Gallagher on
Saturday along with their
plethora of Florida
Cracker friends including
kids and all to celebrate
their nuptials.
Bob and Amber Gal-
lagher along with the mem-
bers of their wedding party
enjoyed the special occas-
sion.
I remember the little girl
whose name is "Miracle"
because she introduced
herself to me prior to the
wedding. When I asked her
what her name was and
she told me Miracle she
asked.... aren't you going to
ask me why I was named
Miracle? I said sure she
said because her parents
said there was only a 10


percent chance that they
could produce a baby and
here she is a real cutie!
Wow, our Buddy Lamar
Miller says things are pick-
ing up! Here's your proof ...
Lamar Miller came in late
Saturday night from the
South end of the lake (just
in time for the wedding re-
ception) and had a blast!
In addition to Lamar's
success bass fishing our
good friend Allen Johnson
(In between courting his
numerous girlfriends) -
holding a 9 pound Bowfin,
is back in town from Indi-
ana.
Allen is shown with
Tracy's Point own Dennis
Holland who handles all
maintenance related items
to keep our business oper-
ating efficiently and aes-
thetically pleasing to the
eye. Dennis' has been a
great addition to our staff
and I hope he will be here
for years to come.
Here is my take on the
fishing ... and (outside of
the full moon coming up, I
think it boils down to the
cooler weather). If you
have been following the
weather forecasts, it has
been unseasonably warm
for this time of year. If you
recall, anglers were nailing
the Speckled Perch a week
ago when we were enjoy-
ing the cooler tempera-
tures and then Wham! It
warmed up and the
Specks turned off and I
am sure it had an impact
on other fish as well.
Things to come ...we are
excited about the New
Year! In addition to all of
the new Weddings, many of
our customers who have
historically only stayed
with us for a month or so
will be staying for almost 3
months such as my favorite
Bobby Bare who is sched-
uled to stay the entire 1st
Quarter of the year.
Bobby will have an en-
tourage' of folks staying
with him which is great for
business welcome back
Bobby!!!
That's it for this week -
good luck and good fishing!

someone more receptive.
LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) A workplace complication that you
thought was ironed out develops new
wrinkles that need attention. Mean-
while, expect continuing improvement
in your home life.
SCORPIO (October 23 to Novem-
ber 21) A tense personal problem
needs to be talked out before someone
decides to walk out. Resist making
decisions until full explanations are
offered from both sides.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) A technological glitch
that caused problems recently will
soon be repaired, and life can return to
normal. A colleague has a surprising
message to deliver.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) Your partner might feel
that you haven't been as open with him
or her as you should be. Deal with this
now, before it turns into something
more difficult to handle.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febru-
ary 18) Good news: Many of the stum-
bling blocks that affected the progress
of some of your career projects are
fading away. Things also start to look
up on the home front.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
You'll need that strong Piscean pluck
to get through waters that will be tur-
bulent for a while. A more positive
aspect soon emerges, along with some
welcome news.
BORN THIS WEEK: You are zeal-
ous in the pursuit of truth. You would
make an excellent research scientist.

ARIES (March 2 1 to April 19) Keep
those sharp Sheep eyes focused on a
hazy situation. As things begin to clear
up, you'll fmnd a sharper picture emerg-
ing, showing something you will need
to know.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Watch your expenses through the end
of the month. Later, you'll be glad to
have extra money to pay for something
that will make an acquisitive Bovine's
heart beat faster.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
You're now ready to make that oft-
deferred commitment, if you still
believe it's what you want. Don't be
afraid to change your mind if you feel
you should go in another direction.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Now
that you are moving on with your life
after that recent disappointment, how
about reactivating your travel plans and
taking someone special along with you.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Many
new friends come into your personal
life, which suits all of you social Lions
just fine. However, one new friend
might make demands that you could
find difficult to deal with,
VIRGO (August 23 to September
22) Communication doesn't exist
unless it's two-way. So if you're get-
ting no replies to the signals you're
sending, it could be time to look for

Wildwood Growers 1Market
You don't need to worry about a particular
date to attend the market. It's open every Sat-
urday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wildwood
City Hall Courtyard Square.
The market is sponsored by the City of Wild-
wood in conjunction with the University of
Florida.
The market features locally grown fruits
and vegetables, ornamental plants and flow-
ers, handmade crafts, and food and drink.
The venture was launched as a way to pro-
mote the local agricultural industry and en-
courage eating healthy, fresh seasonal fruits


and vegetables. The open-air setting provides
an informal, social gathering place for inter-
action among friends and neighbors.
Pets are welcome as long as they are well
behaved and on a leash, but you must clean
up after them.

Sumter Couniy Farmer's Market
Along County Road 471 in Webster, you'll
find the Sumter County Farmers' M~arket.
One day a week, every M~onday, the market
comes alive.

you can certainly find nearly any fruit and
vegetable available in various quantities, you
can also find cast iron pans to T-shirts and
back again. Concession stands abound with a
variety of food choices from sausage to a sit-
down restaurant.

Chili Cook-off
Bushnell holds their downtown chili cook-
off each year in January.
For $20, challengers can throw in their hat
and stew up their chili, vying for the top title.
Once the chili's ready to serve, the crowd
does the sampling and the judging. For just
$5, each person gets an armband and a
chance to sample everybody's chili. They cast
the votes that name the winner.
It's a relaxed atmosphere that offers far
more than a chili samplin' the crowd can
visit with old friends and meet new folks and
enjoy the sounds of a live band.
NOTE Typically, the cook-off is held down-

The annual county fair draws hundreds of

The event is a mix of today's midway rides,

as youth enter livestock, swine, poultry and
other ranch and farm competitions.
And the youth aren't alone in their chance
to pursue tradition and heritage. There are

JAKES Day Out
If you're a youth and you love the outdoors,
JAKES Day is the event to attend.
A program designed to teach youth the
sporting heritage of outdoors, JAKES is a fun-
filled, prize-filled afternoon for the entire
family, all hosted by the Sumter County Long-
beards with the help of other organizations.
Each year, the youth are invited out to
Richloam Fish Hatchery where they spend
the day fishing, learning turkey calls, trying
their skills at archery and visiting exhibitors
and watching demonstrations. Youth get a
chance to learn about life as a law enforce-
ment helicopter pilot or the partner of a ca-
nine officer.
They might get a wave from Smokey the
Bear or an up close and personal with some-
thing from the wild.
In past years, each of the estimated 600
youth took home their very own brand new
fishing poles and one lucky winner walked
away with a bass boat.
And it's all free even lunch.
For more information, call the event coor-
dinator at 303-7783.

Linden C mtery Picnic
Join the hundreds of people who flock to
the Linden Cemetery, off State Road 50, each
June for the Linden Cemetery Picnic. It's a
tradition that's been going strong for more
than 100 years and it's known for a day of
catching up with family and friends and a day
of eating. Organizers serve about 1,000
pounds of barbecued meat and chicken
pileau at the event to raise money for ceme-
tery maintenance.
The picnic is also known for its more than
100 gallons of homemade lemonade sold
each ear. The cake and pie auction is another
big draw.
The event is always a good time for patrons
to get familiar with Linden history. Old pho-

OCTOBER
Bushnell Fall Festival
For almost three decades, the City of Bush-
nell has sponsored an annual Fall Festival in
the heart of the city. The event is historically
held on the middle of the month of October.
Festivities start with a parade down M~ain
Street that includes floats, marching bands
and plenty of festive participants. For young-
sters, many of the parade participants throw
candy to the crowd as they pass by.
The festival continues throughout the day
with a wide variety of booths, live entertain-
ment, games and activities for all ages. You'll
find anything from pageant queens to singers,
from log sawing contests to the ever popular
greased pig contest.
It all started in 1985 when the city agreed to
plan something special to celebrate its 100th
birthday. City leaders decided the best way to
honor the occasion was to have a citywide
birthday celebration. The birthday celebra-
tion was such a success that city leaders
agreed to make the event an annual affair
and renamed it the Bushnell Fall Festival.

See DISCOVER, Page 12

There's always plenty of food, vendors and entertainment
at the Bushnell Fall Festival. The event is held every Oc-
tober in downtown Bushnell near the Sumter courthouse.

SEPTEMBER
Annual Cracker Ball
There's dancing, an auction and an inter-

ley M~edical Center, in Sumterville, holds its
annual Cracker Ball.
The event is the annual fundraiser for the
medical center and the funds raised from the
event benefit residents who may not be able
to afford insurance for services at the center,
provide scholarships to Sumter County stu-
dents pursuing careers in the medical field
and help to sponsor children for special med-
ical camps.
The event is held at various locations in the
county and always includes dozens of silent
auction items, entertainment and a satisfying
meal.
