When Danny, a 7-yearold half Arabian and half quarter horse, recently won a local carriage-driving competition, owner Susan Diemer couldnt have been happier. Diemer, of Bushnell, won the championship at the American Driving Society Rated Horse and Carriage Driving event held in November at the Sumter Equestrian Center outside Bushnell. She has been competing in similar competitions for about 20 years. Susan and her horse, Danny, went up against a dozen others from around the state for the championship title. All 12 horses had 10 classes in which to compete. While Diemer has won other championships before, this one had a special meaning. A few years ago, Danny almost died from colic, an intestinal blockage that required a very serious operation, Susans husband Earl said. With only More than a year following his death, an arrest has been made in the hit-andrun accident that claimed the life of a 12-year-old Webster boy. On Monday, Nov. 28, Shauna Lee Vincent, 51, of Webster, was arrested by the Florida Highway Patrol in connection with the December 2010 death of Zachary Howard. She was arrested for negligent manslaughter while driving under the influence and hit and run. Vincent was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $60,000. Howard died Dec. 10, 2010, after he was struck by a car about 4:30 p.m. as he was walking south on County Road 721, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Following the accident, authorities recovered the car, a 1991, 4-door Mercedes, but did not make an immediate arrest. Howard was walking to his grandmothers home I N S I D E SIMPLY SLIMMED! SIMPLY SLIMMED! B OB R EICHMAN Editor On Monday, Nov. 28, Shauna Lee Vincent, 51, of Webster, was arrested by the Florida Highway Patrol in connection with the December 2010 death of Zachary Howard. Roger Yoakum The only Sumter County suspect arrested in a March sex-sting operation was found guilty last week of attempting to meet an underage boy for sex. A Sumter County jury last week found Roger Yoakum, 31, of Lake Panasoffkee, guilty of all three charges filed against him in connection with the March Internet operation dubbed STARCOP The operation resulted in the arrest of 22 suspects throughout the state accused of attempting to solicit sex from minors. On Nov. 22, a Sumter County jury found Yoakum guilty of using the Internet to solicit or entice a child, traveling to meet a minor to engage in an illegal act and transmitting material harmful to a minor. He is expected to be sentenced in the Sumter County Courthouse in Bushnell on Dec. 21 by Circuit Judge William Hallman. Yoakum was the only Sumter County resident arrested during the sting conducted by the Sumter County Sheriffs Office and other law enforcement agencies.

Jenna Temple and Tyler Rowe, were the students who raised the most money in the fundraiser. HOLIDAY HOLIDAY HELPERS HELPERS Move over Blue Man Group, here come the Green Slime Guys. And when it comes to raising money, this group goes far beyond zipped latex they go for the glory and jump in for the real, ooey, gooey green. Bushnell Elementary School Principal John Temple and coaches Stephen Nave and John Bisignano offered students a chance to douse them in slime if the school could raise $5,000 for the American Heart Association in the school Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. Nave and Bisignano originally coordinated the event and volunteered for the sliming, but they also tossed Temple into the mix. While the school fell slightly short of their $5,000 goal, raising just under $4,300, they opted to let the students at the goo anyway. By 1 p.m. on Nov. 16, the school courtyard was filled with students from around the campus and the coaches and principal were seated with anJenna Temple pours on the slime to Principal John Temple.

P AGE 2S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 1, 2011 when the accident happened. He was southbound on the west shoulder of the road when he was struck from behind, according to the report. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. The vehicle was located on State Road 50, eight miles east of County Road 721, shortly after the accident but an arrest was not made until an investigation was completed. Howard was an eighth grade student at South Sumter Middle School. Following news of his death, guidance counselors and school staff members gathered to help prepare students with his death. Two guidance counselors helped in the classrooms and dealt with students who needed to leave their classes because of their grief, Jean Holstein, school district coordinator of student services, said at the time. There was a lot of grief but many children had such nice things to say about Zachary, she said. In particular, Holstein said many students spoke of his great sense of humor and considered him to be their best friend. It was just consistent that they had such nice things to say about him. DUI continued from Page 1 a 50-50 chance of surviving, Danny made it, but that was only after about a year of recovery. Its a very serious condition, probably the number one killer of horses, Diemer said. Danny had to receive surgery where his stomach was opened and his intestines cleansed because of the illness, Diemer said. He lost a lot of weight and he had to be stalled for almost three months. The November competition was the first one for Danny since his operation. It was a special win, considering the situation the horse had been in, Diemer said. Danny is a horse with a good attitude and wants to please, he said. He is an exceptional horse. HORSE continued from Page 1 ticipation. The students took turns splattering them with cups of slime until all three men were coated in the green goo. Nave said they got the idea from the American Heart Association, who said Webster Elementary used a similar reward for students. It was great. There were 123 kids that raised money, Nave said. Thats really good. Along with the incentives and the fundraiser, the athletic department has been working to teach kids about the benefits of exercise and how the cardiovascular system works. He said they teach that the heart is a muscle and how the exercise will make it stronger. They also have a walking program and keep track of the number of loops or miles the students walk. While he said they dont understand the impact it will have on their bodies 20, 30 or 40 years down the road, they do listen and get excited about the program. They began the fundraiser on Oct. 12 and went through to Nov. 1, he said. The heart association has their prizes with their program, but we have our supplemental prizes. Bushnell Elementary School offered the students a chance to slime them, but theyre also hosting a popcorn party, a pizza party and a Wii party for the children. Students Jenna Temple and Tyler Rowe brought in the most money for the fundraiser and were allowed to Coach for the Day. Both children spent the day with Nave acting as coaches. They were allowed to pick and lead activities and the other students even called them coach. We believe in it and we put a lot of effort into it, Nave said, noting that Temple was also a strong supporter. And the principal as well in fact we didnt reach our goal of $5,000 but he said lets do it anyway. SLIME continued from Page 1 Students Jenna Temple and Tyler Rowe brought in the most money for the fundraiser and were allowed to Coach for the Day. Yoakum was arrested after he attempted to meet a 15-year-old boy at a local location, undisclosed by sheriffs authorities, for sex, according to the arrest report. Yoakum reportedly communicated with a sheriffs deputy posing as a minor on an Internet site. During several e-mails or phone calls, the defendant stated that he wanted to engage in oral sex, according to the report. Utilizing the online service, the defendant also sent the deputy a naked picture of himself The officer posing as the child stated that he was coming to Wildwood for spring break with his father who goes to meetings and Im by myself lots. Yoakum was arrested by sheriffs deputies on March 16 when he arrived at the undercover location to meet the boy, according to the arrest report. Detectives conducted the cyber sting between March 14 and March 20 and logged more than 500 hours of Internet time resulting in the arrest of 21 male suspects and one female.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 1, 2011 Fur-ever thankful T hough this time of year is our busiest with fundraisers, community events, campaigns to adopt and construct Central Floridas First Green Animal Shelter in Sumter County, we must slow down and take this opportunity to express our most sincere gratitude to our supporters. You, the community, have allowed us to live up to and honor our mission statement with your contributions of time, labor, finances and kind praises from friends on Facebook. For this were fur-ever thankful. Each year brings us new challenges to face. Financially, in this economy, you have still been there for the animals. Whether it was a dollar in our donation box or regular monthly contributions, every bit is important to accomplish the jobs ahead of us helping animals in need. When we have asked for donations for those on Kibbles on Wheels, you delivered food, blankets and time so others would not have to lose their precious pets during rough times. For this were fur-ever thankful. When we needed help to care for our largest pet hoarding case in years, you came to feed, clean, teach and love on these neglected animals. Animal fighting, hoarding and reducing the pet over-population are amongst the many challenges we face year-round. We were worried we may not be able to take on some of these daunting obstacles, but you were there rising to our challenge. For this were fur-ever thankful. You believe in us and our goal to improve life for animals in Sumter County. To all our local media, you have helped spread the word of our necessary work. To those who helped make our work environment more efficient with better office equipment, furnishings and flooring, to those who hosted and sponsored events, you have shown the real meaning of community and made a big difference. For this were furever thankful. We are a volunteer-based non-profit organization, a team which is continuously growing and providing community assistance. To our volunteers, with their own lives, jobs and concerns, your commitment to help is so appreciated. Thank you to all our precious team members who come to the rescue, either dealing with heartbreaking situations no one should ever witness, to volunteers who contribute their expertise and to those who open their homes to shelter a helpless animal in its greatest time of need. We need more people like you in order to grow and serve more. For this were fur-ever thankful. Although we always send individual thanks throughout the year, we now approach a time of reflection, and our gratitude must reflect back to shine on all of you, our community. Without you, we would not have been able to accomplish so much in our first 30 years helping animals and their people within Sumter County. You remember us in your daily lives and kindly continue to do so when you leave a legacy of compassion and for this were Fur-ever thankful. If you would like to join us, your local Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, please contact us at 352-793-9117, www.hsspca.org or write to us at info@hsspca.org, or PO Box 67, Lake Panasoffkee, FL, 33538. On behalf of our organization and the animals we strive to protect, we wish you and your pets a safe, healthy and prosperous holiday season and new year. Were Fur-ever thankful for you.The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. A holiday from stimulus? The Administration and the Congress, abetted by the press, are in a public debate over whether to extend the 2 percent tax holiday that was applied to social security last year. The line from the Administration goes something like this: To quote Republicans, the last thing we should do in a recession is to raise taxes. This will take $1,000 away from every working class family in America. The line from some Republicans is: We have to find a way to pay for it. And it should come from reductions in spending not tax increases elsewhere. To do the latter is merely redistributing the wealth. We should have learned our lesson with the original stimulus package in 2009. Simply put: Keynesian economic theory has not worked. Additionally, to take an estimated $240B from the Social Security trust fund, at a time when the long-term viability of Social Security is in question, seems ill advised. Yes, we would all like to pay zero taxes and we are prone to support those in the Administration and the Congress who want to give us our money back. However, there are items in the federal budget that we must support and we must support with our taxes. One such item is defense spending. We are on a track to cut spending on defense by 20 percent. If the defense cuts are not changed, we will be at an all-time post World War II low in defense spending-a mere 2.7 percent of GDP This comes at a time when we are at war in multiple places around the world. Further, cutting defense by 20 percent would throw several hundred thousand of our troops out of work. It would decimate the defense industrial base causing the loss of over 1 million jobs. The Preamble to the Constitution says: provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare It seems that our leaders in Washington DC, have mixed up the verbs in this phrase. Perhaps Presidents Kennedy and Reagan were not wrong in their decisions to stimulate the economy by increasing defense spending. Something to think about. M i k e E mi g Air F orce A ss ociation O ca l a Thank you Providence Baptist Church would like to thank all who were involved with Thanksgiving dinner for our bus families. We were able to serve nearly two-hundred adults, teenagers and children a traditional Thanksgiving meal on Sunday, Nov. 20. It was a blessed day as the Lord saved 7 precious souls. Five of those souls were adults and two were children. Thank you again to all who participated to make the day special! We here at Providence would also like to announce our upcoming December events. On Dec. 4 our pastor will be taking his Sunday school class on a dining and shopping excursion at 4 p.m. On Dec. 11 in the evening service, the children of Providence Baptist Church will be presenting their Christmas play, Christmas in the Country. We would like to invite your family to come and enjoy a fun-filled evening with a special focus on the true meaning of Christmas. On Dec. 18 in the morning service, the church choir will be presenting The Splendor of Christmas a Christmas Cantata. We invite you to come and hear the story of Jesus birth presented in song. On Dec. 25 we will have special morning services The Lord is blessing us here at Providence and we would like to invite you to come and see what He is doing! Pro v i d ence B a p ti s t Church Note of thanks The families of Sean McLeod and Ryan Ruano offer our sincere and deepest appreciation to our friends, our community and especially our family for the overwhelming outpouring of love shown to us. We wish we could publicly acknowledge each and every one that assisted us and supported us through their efforts, their prayers, cards, food, flowers and more importantly their presence, but to do so would be an exhausting list of names. We will, in time, attempt to privately and individually thank each and every one that helped us through this most difficult time. Our love and appreciation goes out to all of you.

The yard sale the weekend of Nov. 19 at Adams Home Builders was a great success. It cleared $3,400 in sales and with in-kind donations, the total is $3,607.68! That is the highest total for the four years the yard sale has been held and over $1,000 more than last year. Many thanks to Linda Adams and Laura Trotman for organizing the yard sale again this year and to the volunteers who helped with the sale: Amanda Trotman, Lois Risner, Phillip Trotman, Joey Alvis, Steve Dezarn, Ricky Hibbard, Jenna Bybee, Kathy Parrish, Joey Sparks, Jessica Kirby, Jay Burckle and Maggie Brock. If I left anyones name off the list, please let me know. A special thank you to everyone who donated items for the yard sale and, of course, to all the shoppers. M ar s ha W oo d ar d Per k in s Ex ecuti v e D irector SCAR C, Inc. Dont forget small businesses B ill Herrle, executive director of the National Federation of Independent Business/Florida, is encouraging holiday shoppers to take advantage of small businesses. The busy holiday shopping season is especially critical to Floridas small businesses, which are still struggling to rebound from the weak economy. State-specific data isnt available, but according to NFIBs most recent Small Business Optimism Index, the No. 1 problem facing small business last month remained poor sales, followed by government regulations and taxes. Small businesses have suffered so much during the recent economic slump, and a holiday sales boost could be the key to helping turn Floridas small businesses and the economy around, Herrle said. Youll also be giving your community a boost, because money spent at your local small businesses tends to stay right in your community. Our goal is simply to remind shoppers to stop by those local mom and pop shops in your town rather than just hitting the big box stores, and were hoping that shoppers will remember our small businesses throughout December, Herrle said. NFIB is poised to make some big pushes to help small businesses when session begins in the new year, including lowering taxes and workers comp and unemployment insurance rates. But you can help small businesses and the economy right now simply by spending your shopping dollars on goods and services provided by independent businesses in your community. There are approximately 410,000 small businesses in Florida, which accounts for about 99 percent of the states employers, according to the Small Business Administration.

Thanksgiving dinner with Shirley Brown includes a few hundred of her family, friends and even strangers. Thats because Brown and her siblings, Delphine and Freddie Brown and Leon Allen and Seabo Williams share their Thanksgiving with the community. Family members spend the morning barbecuing and baking in order to have enough food for the crowd that attends. And everyones welcome, according to Brown. They had 410 people from the community come out to eat and they were still coming, she said. Brown uses whatever money she gets from family as gifts and relies on her family for help. Her brother Leon Allen usually splits the cost of the food with her. This years meat included more than six cases of chicken, six hams, four turkeys, a case of turkey wings, 60 pounds of potatoes for potato salad. She was up at 5:30 cooking, but had already started the hams and turkeys in the oven, just after midnight the night before. After spending hours cooking, the family spent more than three and a half hours at the pavilion, fellowshipping with one another. Brown said she always stashes some food up under the table for those who may be hungry and come late. Brown said she started out cooking meals at her house, but things began to grow. This year they had a dozen cakes donated, drinks and carloads of clothes. They also baked 18 cakes for the event. Sister Delphine bakes cakes and cooks up macaroni and cheese, while Leon helps with preparation and the funding. Then theres Freddie, the oldest of the five. She said he spent all day Friday hard at work and she spent Friday picking up donations from a very generous public. While she wants to help anyone, Im more concerned about the elderly, she said, especially the homebound, who she wants to see others bring out for the annual event. She worries that too many people are left in nursing homes with no one to take time with them. Show them love, give them a blanket, make them a bootie, she said. Thats my thanks thats my Christmas, when you do for them, she said. Brown said she would love to have a kitchen to feed the hungry, where she could serve food at least three times each week. Im so grateful, she said of the people who donated. She said she made three trips to pick up clothing that was given out at this years dinner. They were given cakes and pies and more. Were not concerned about ourselves, just about others. I had a lot of them say, I have never seen somebody take it out of their own pocket and just feed people for free, Brown said, quoting some of the people who came out to eat. She said shes been told that God will bless them. But she responds, Were already blessed to be here. Shes already thinking how next year will be bigger and better and her second oldest son is already planning things he wants to add to next year, she said. In this economy, we all need each other. Together we stand, divided well fall, so lets come together and be one big, happy family. I am so grateful. And while she notes there are many involved, she sent that special thanks out to her family, the City of Webster clerks and police chief and Jackies Market. Thanksgiving and Christmas, those are my favorite months of the year Thanksgiving is for giving and sharing. And then theres Christmas, when she loves to buy gifts for an elderly person or a child. As a matter of fact, less than three days after feeding the community, shes already working on putting together five Christmas baskets. I started on that last night, she said.

Following a successful Halloween event, a variety of groups are coming together again later this month to enhance the annual Lake Panasoffkee Christmas parade and party but they could use some help. About 600 youngsters are expected to turn out for the Dec. 10 holiday festivities, thats about 100 more than last year, and volunteers and donations are being sought to help ensure a memorable and successful festival. As they did for Halloween in the Park, the Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Project, the Friends of the Panasoffkee Community Library, the Lake Panasoffkee Moose Lodge #1179 and Moose Chapter #1590 are all joining forces to promote and stage the event. But with difficult economic times, support is needed. It is terribly sad that our children are the hardest hit in these tough economic times, said Ellen Palmer Hack, representative of Women of Moose #1590 and event volunteer. Some families have to choose between utilities and food. This leaves nothing special for the little ones. What we are trying to accomplish is a way for parents to bring some fun into their childrens lives. While combining the resources of the various groups will enhance the event, additional help would be appreciated, Hack said. First off, volunteers are needed to help wrap gifts the week prior to the party. Volunteers will be wrapping from Dec. 5 through Dec. 8. Call Ellen at 793-4908 if you want to help. Donations are also needed, that can include financial support or cookies, punch, wrapping paper, candy, popcorn, sodas, hotdogs, buns and condiments. Supporters are also seeking to loan photo printers, cameras, computers, printers, photo paper and ink for photographs taken at the event.

Connie has been a proud member of the Chamber for many years and has even been an ambassador and has sat on the board of directors. She is currently part of the Leads Lunch group and was an important part of our Beef and Boogie Committee. Her commitment and dedication to this event was the golden key to her receiving this prestigious award! Connie has always felt her membership with the Chamber has been an asset in her business. When asked what she feels is the greatest challenge for the Sumter County Chamber she states when youre a business that isnt familiar with the benefits of becoming a member, it could be a challenge to explain the many benefits associated with being a part of the Chamber. The Sumter Chamber has been brought to task these past couple of years and now has a record membership. That is very exciting and I am happy to be a part of a Chamber that truly has the business community buzzing! Connie Mahan Realty Group is located at 218 N. Florida St., Suite 1 in Bushnell, FL.

We have reserved several weddings as well as one 50 year wedding anniversary over the next 8 weeks this is fun and cool stuff! Last weekend we hosted a wedding for Bob and Amber Gallagher which was a smashing success with over 150 people in attendance. I believe I covered this event last week, but the Thanksgiving Holidays have me a bit confused. I suppose Im trying to make a point here and that is there is plenty to do here besides fishing and the view is incredible. We had a weenie roast with our guests last Friday night with a big bon fire, roasting chocolate marshmallows while listening to Bobby and Stephanie put out a wonderful sound out across the lake, even the fish were jamming. Dancing and laughter filled our pavilion after our Thanksgiving feast on Friday evening. Donna and I are pleased and proud to announce and wel come our newest staff member Mo Anderson. Mo has a plethora of experience in running fishing lodges and we are thrilled to have her with us. She hit the ground running and knows the ropes (what a breath of fresh air) Welcome Mo!Fishing ReportI have been in daily contact with Bobby Bare and his circle of friends who are big time wild fishermen we are in the process of setting up our wild shiner tanks and getting ready come Sunday, Jan. 1 it will be Gentlemen start your engines as these folks hit the water seeking out that 15 pounder (or better). Wild shiner fishing is a different kind of sport but if you are looking for that wall hanger wild shiners are the way to go. As the water temperatures begin to drop (again) be prepared for the crappie its about time and Im thinking next week just may be the start of a fun filled season beginning with crappie through mid March and then phasing into Blue Gill and Shellcrackers in April and May so organize your calendars and give us a holler here at Tracys Point and well put you on the fish. Good luck and good fishin! Steve Lisas mom and dad had a belly full of fun.

The Sumter Native American Family Tribe hosted a Native American Inter-Tribal gathering at Dade Battlefield Historic State Park Saturday and Sunday Nov. 19 and 20. Chief Red Eagle Howard Oxendine said that the event was a huge success considering that this was the first one hosted solely by the Sumter County tribe. Food and craft vendors began setting up for the event on Friday while, the Chief said the tribe had been preparing for several months for the 2 day event. The festivities included Native American drummers and dancers, storytellers, crafters, Native American food and more with a grand entry occurring at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday and again at 1 p.m. on Sunday. This family friendly event had approximately 1,000 visitors with some from as far away as the state of Connecticut. Chief Red Eagle explains that this Native American Gathering which is similar to a Pow-Wow, is a celebration of heritage and traditions of the Native American people. It is a way for Native Americans to connect with each other while keeping their culture alive through dance, song and storytelling. There is a circle in most dances, representing the circle of unity, the cycle of life. Native American gatherings provide opportunities for Native Americans to educate non-natives about the Native American culture and traditions. As with the sacred thread that runs through all of life, there are sacred traditions to be found in this coming together of people. Sumter Native American Family Tribe is in the planning stages now for next years Pow-Wow which will occur on Sept. 28 through 30, 2012 at Dade Battlefield again. Mark your calendars now to attend this event next year. A heartfelt thanks was given by Chief Red Eagle to Carpet Depot & More for their generous contribution, the Park Rangers of Dade Battlefield Historic State Park and all of the workers who took part in making this event a huge success.

T here is conflicting beliefs from professionals whether or not animals expe'nging more and more scientific evidence to light proving that animals do indeed experience emotions. For any of us who live with our pets as family members, we clearly know the emotional range our pets are capable of experiencing. It is easy to recognize a happy dog or cat. Reading their body language tells it all. When we walk through the door after a day at work, we are greeted with excitement and happiness. Emotions of joy are clearly evident during play. Some dogs and cats even create their own games. Happy excitement is displayed every time I pick up a leash Oh boy! Yippee! We are going for a walk! Is loyalty an emotion? If so, our pets are steadfast in their loyalty as our companions. Love is the strongest emotion of all, and it is evident that our pets feel love. We feel their love every day. Abundant stories of family pets who have risked their lives to protect their humans are evident of their love for us. Animals are capable of experiencing grief. History has many stories of animals who have grieved the loss of their owner. Recently a story in the news touched the hearts of so many. An American soldier killed in action was brought home. His faithful dog walked up to the coffin, sadly laid down and remained there throughout the service. There was no doubt that the soldiers dog was grieving his masters passing. Camaraderie and similar likes will form friendships. Animals will form friendships with one another, some with very strong emotional ties. Stray animals that have formed these strong bonds with one another have been known to protect their injured friend, sometimes putting their own lives at risk. In a household with multiple pets, when one dies, one or more of the remaining animals may experience grief. They may mope around, not wanting to participate in their normal activities. Some may refuse to eat; the extent of their grief is so deep. Understanding that animals are capable of experiencing a wide range of emotions is so important when bringing a pet home. Taking a pet home is a commitment that should not be taken lightly. Far too many times the novelty of a cute little puppy or adorable little kitten wears off, and caring for the young dog or cat becomes a bother. When interest is lost in the pet, the dog or cat becomes a burden and is cast off without a second thought. This is a scenario that is not uncommon. It is not only sad, it is inhumane and heartless. It is one of the reasons that shelters across the country are filled with homeless animals. Our pets are loyal and loving creatures. We can choose to return their love, or we can choose to reject them. The choice is ours. Lets make the right one.
