On July 15, 1987, Mobleys body was found face down and tied up with a bed sheet, in a wooded area off County Road 475, near Lake Panasoffkee. It was just after sunrise, but authorities believe Mobley was killed before 1 a.m. that morning. He died from blunt force trauma to the head. Mobley, who lived in Lake Panasoffkee, worked as the electronics manager for the Bushnell Walmart. For nearly two decades the case remained unsolved, but in 2006, authorities linked Carl Dausch to Mobleys murder through DNA found on evidence taken from Mobleys car. The successful link came when Dausch, now 53, was incarcerated in an Indiana state prison on unrelated charges. He was brought back to Sumter County in 2008 to face charges of premeditated murder and sexual assault. His trial is scheduled to begin this week in the Sumter County Judicial Building in Bushnell. Although unrelated, at least one of the charges he was convicted on in Indiana was similar he was serving a 60-year prison sentence for sexual assault and kidnapping, according to sheriffs office reports. He has been in custody since 1989. Dausch was reportedly visiting Central Florida with family members around the time of Mobleys murder. According to information the sheriffs office released after Dauschs indictment in 2006: After visiting Walt Disney World, an argument caused family members to leave Dausch, who was 29 at that time. After he and his family members parted ways, Dausch began hitchhiking. Authorities believe that at some point, Mobley picked him up Dausch hitchhiking picking up hitchhikers was something Mobley was known to do. Later on the day that Mobleys body was found, his Honda Accord was discovered in White House, Tenn. At the time, an officer spotted a white man, now believed to be Dausch, but police were not suspicious until they found out the vehicle was Mobleys. Several cigarette butts and a palm print were among evidence taken from Mobleys vehicle. Mobleys wallet was found a week after the murder by a Department of Transportation employee mowing grass along Interstate 75 near Carl Dausch WILDWOOD CELEBRATES WILDWOOD CELEBRATES Photos by TAMMY FORE/Sumter County TimesSanta and Mrs. Claus are shown with their reindeer and some guest riders during the Wildwood Christmas parade on Saturday.

Panasoffkee land issue troubles community The property, already owned by the county, includes almost 600 acres at the end of County Road 482S, off County Road 489 in Lake Panasoffkee. It abuts Interstate 75. Its not exactly your typical land use request. While the County Commission is the applicant for a controversial land use request in Lake Panasoffkee, it will also be the board that decides whether the request is approved or not. The property, already owned by the county, includes almost 600 acres at the end of County Road 482S, off County Road 489 in Lake Panasoffkee. It abuts Interstate 75. The current zoning is agricultural and the land is used, in part, as a dredge spoil site from the recent restoration work in Lake Panasoffkee. The County Commission, by way of its county administrator, Bradley Arnold, is requesting a major special use permit for the land that surrounding landowners are protesting. The parcel was transferred to the county in 2009 in an agreement with the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The agreement stipulates that the land, known as the Lake Panasoffkee Spoil Site, could be used as a public shooting range. It also stipulates that the land must be used to serve the public benefit. The water district deterB OB R EICHMAN Editor Vickers party set at medical center Last year, more than 1,000 youngsters turned out for a very special Christmas party in Sumterville. This year is expected to be no different as children of all ages flock to the 8th annual Laura Vickers Christmas for Kids Party on Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Thomas E. Langley Medical Center, on U.S. 301. The event is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. with plenty of entertainment, games, free food, bounce houses and bicycle drawings to name a few. Youngsters can also expect a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus during the festivities. Established for children and their families, the Laura Vickers party was launched by Vickers, a Langley employee who was killed in a car accident. Seeing the challenges faced by children in the community who needed help the most, Vickers decided to throw a party for the children involved in Langleys Healthy Start Program. Not long after the holidays in 2004, Vickers was killed by a drunk driver. The medical center continued the annual Christmas party, naming it after Vickers. Donations can still be made to the event, for information contact Paul Quinn at 793-5900 extension 2945. B OB R EICHMAN Editor See TRIAL Page 2 See LAND Page 2

mined that the acreage may be used for a public trap and skeet range, public shooting range and a police training facility. It also states that a portion of the land could be used for the treatment of wastewater or discharge of reclaimed water. In Arnolds application for the major special use designation several uses are being proposed. The propertys large acreage and rural location results in few neighbors and provides room for generous setbacks and buffers, according to the application. These are desirable traits for a firing range that enhance public safety. These same traits result in access from a rural road. Like many rural roads, C.R. 482 has little traffic volume. Any active use of the subject property would likely increase the traffic load by more than the five percent limit. The road would be assessed to determine if improvements would be necessary to serve the increase volume of traffic, the application states. So how is it that the County Commission will be making a decision on its own application? Well, technically, the board isnt required to go through the permitting process at all, according to Arnold. The board is exempt from going through the process, he said. But, I did recommend to the board that they go through the process to provide a good opportunity for residents to voice concerns that they have living in proximity to the spoil site. Its better to have public comment up front before we move forward, he said. While no immediate plans are being proposed for the property, Arnold said the public hearing allows for everything to be open and transparent involving the development process. That public input was demonstrated when the issue was considered by the zoning board on Monday night. Several people addressed the zoning board voicing their concerns that developing the land would increase noise and traffic in their rural neighborhoods. The board was also presented with a petition signed by residents opposed to the plan. While the zoning board has recommended approval, it added several stipulations. The board wants the county to install a natural buffer on the northern berm of the property to cut down on noise and it also wants the county to continue to seek alternative access to the property that would be less intrusive to neighboring residents. The final decision concerning the land will be made by the County Commission on Tuesday, Dec. 13. The board meets at 5:30 p.m. in County Commission chambers at 910 N. Main Street, Room 142, Bushnell.

Police report Sumter County SWAT students have been working with county and city officials to urge retailers to stop sales of Candy Flavor Tobacco. Cigarettes contain more than 7,000 chemicals and compounds with over 100 of those found to be toxic and 70 proven to cause cancer (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services). Candy Flavored Tobacco masks the initial harsh reactions experienced when trying tobacco products. According to the American Legacy Foundation, of youth smokers between the ages of 13 and 18, 52 percent have tried candy flavored tobacco. Nearly 60 percent of youth smokers thought that the candy flavored tobacco would taste better. Since October, Sumter County SWAT youth have attended the Webster, Bushnell, and Wildwood City Councils as well as a meeting of the Sumter County Board of County Commissioners. SWAT youth asked each of the City Councils to pass resolutions urging retailers to stop selling Candy Flavored Tobacco. At the Board of County Commission meeting held on Nov. 22, a Proclamation was presented to SWAT urging retailers to stop selling candy flavored tobacco. Students Working Against Tobacco get local support from officials to urge retailers to stop sales of candy-flavored tobacco LIBRARY The Sumter Campus Library is located in Sumterville, Florida.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 8, 2011 County voting on its own permit? T he entire concept can be more than a bit confusing. The County Commission is going through a land use permitting process that it really doesnt even need to go through. The Southwest Florida Water Management District provides land to the county and thinks that a shooting range may be a good use for a portion of the land. They are two of the oddities involved in about 600 acres of land that the county acquired from the water management district back in 2009. Monday night, the county went before its own zoning board to obtain a special use permit for the acreage. Next week, the County Commission itself will decide whether that permit will be granted. What? If youre confused, so are a lot of people. Apparently, the entire reason for all this hoopla is so the public has a good opportunity to comment about the intended use of this property. Well, many of the residents who live near the acreage arent real pleased with the idea of the county having some sort of shooting or skeet range abutting their land. Property owners are concerned that their property values may dip if a shooting range is developed on the site. They also arent very pleased with another possible use for the property a wastewater treatment plant. So, between shooting ranges and wastewater, neighboring residents of this land arent very happy, and they voiced their concerns Monday night during the zoning meeting. They also dont like the idea of their rural roads being impacted continually by large trucks if the land is developed in the ways being considered. One of the water management districts requirements in turning the land over to the county is that it be used for some public use. Thats part of the reason County Administrator Bradley Arnold suggested that the County Commission go through this process in the first place. The county doesnt really need to get this land use permit, and certainly not from itself. Arnold just figured it would be the best way to get public input into the equation. The countys likely to get more input from the public when this bizarre issue goes for a final vote before the County Commission on Tuesday, Dec. 13. That meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in Bushnell.

AGRItunity keynote speaker Ben Hewitt AGRItunity Planning Committee announces keynote speaker for upcoming conference Ben Hewitt Farmer/Author. Ben was born and raised in northern Vermont, where he currently runs a small-scale, diversified hill farm with his family. He lives with his wife and two sons in a self-built home that is powered by a windmill and solar photovoltaic panels. To help offset his renewable energy footprint, Ben drives a really big truck. His work has appeared in numerous national periodicals, including the New York Times Magazine, Wired, Gourmet, Discover, Skiing, Eating Well, Yankee Magazine, Powder, Mens Journal, National Geographic Adventure, and Outside. His most recent book is Making Supper Safe: One Mans Quest to Learn the Truth About Food Safety (Rodale). It was published on June 7. From dumpster diving, to the battle over food rights, to genetically engineered salmon and the interplay between humans and the bacteria they consume, Ben explores the untold story of food safety with humor and good-natured skepticism. His first book, The Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local Food (Rodale), was published in 2010. It tells the story of a rural, working-class Vermont community that is attempting to blueprint and implement a localized food system. At the conference Ben Hewitt will provide a keynote address entitled, The Futures in the Dirt: Digging into localized agriculture and its potential to revitalize health, environment and regional economies. He will also conduct a workshop for those who want to learn how he uses alternative energy, which he calls Sustainable Energy for Sustainable Agriculture: The realities of solar powered food production. The AGRItunity Conference and Trade Show will be held at the Sumter County Agricultural Education Center at the Sumter County Fairgrounds in Bushnell, Florida on Jan. 28, 2012.

ACCEPTING MEDICAID INCLUDING CHILDRENS CLEANINGS, FILLINGS AND SEALANTS Now Open on Fridays 0009Z5O 0009Z5M 0009Z5I Commissioner critical of extension agreement The County Commission has agreed to foster a working relationship with Pasco County to enhance agricultural opportunities between both counties, but it wasnt without some concerns expressed by one commissioner. At the Nov. 22 meeting, commissioners agreed in a 4-to-1 vote to approve a memorandum of understanding between the Florida Cooperative Extension Service, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida Board of Trustee and the County Commissions of both Pasco and Sumter County. The agreement is the first written document explaining the relationship between the different groups which in the past had only been supported verbally although Sumter has contributed financially to the arrangement. The agreement established the responsibilities and relationships that exist between the county extension offices and Sumter and Pasco counties. In the past, Citrus and Hernando counties had participated, but neither county is involved in the proposed agreement. Im excited about Sumter and Pasco partnering because the cattle industry really needs this support, County Administrator Bradley Arnold said. And having this relationship between horticulturists and the persons involved in the cattle production process by sharing resources is a strong promotion by the Board of County Commissioners of agribusiness. The agreement specifies that both counties will continue to provide partial funding for extension programs as long as county budget conditions allow support For Sumter, the agreement states that the county would provide 40 percent of funding for the commercial horticulture agent and provide travel support for the position. It also states the county extension office will provide leadership for administration and supervision of extension programs and county extension faculty. While the majority of the board approved the document, Commissioner Doug Gilpin had some criticism of the way the local extension office is operated. I dont care much for their management style, Gilpin said. I prefer they stay on rack with agricultural opportunities and try to turn those into economic opportunities. I dont care for their performance in past history because there hasnt been any performance, he said. Its more a social function, strictly a social function. Commissioner Garry Breeden told Gilpin that with the written agreement, issues of that sort could be addressed. Id like us all to remember this night, Gilpin said. If we dont have drastic improvement then this is not necessarily a good investment.

Grace notes I n the past few years, my husband and I have made it a tradition to eat Christmas dinner at a nearby inn that serves a humungous buffet. Without fail, every time we go I bemoan the fact that my stomach cant accommodate large quantities of food. Ive seen people eat stacks of pancakes the size of Rhode Island and whole sides of beef and think that maybe I can do that too, but I cant. One Christmas I decided I was a big girl and could keep up with the people eating wheelbarrow portions from the buffet; however, I discovered that when you go well past the full point the food tends to overflow. Thankfully, I made it to the ladies room in time. Since then Ive learned my lesson that when I get the sense that if I eat one more bite Ill get sick not to push my luck. I cant handle a plate thats too full. Lest you think this is all about training for marathon holiday eating extravaganzas, its not. This column is about the week-long stay at home vacation I took this past summer and the day it rained, and what I got out of it. That day I woke up with my bum knee swollen and puffy, so I knew it would be a couch day, not that I had anything planned. So I popped some ibuprofens, brewed a huge mug of tea and sat down on the couch to listen to the rain. Theres something soothing about the sound of rain, especially when the TV is off and there are no other distractions. Just a steady, irregular pounding of water from the sky and the occasional whistle of the wind. Several times a year I have a day like this where its quiet and Im still and content. Its often quiet and Im occasionally still, but I rarely remain still. So for it to be quiet, for me to be quiet and still and to be content is to be an occasion to mark on the calendar. It was Thursday and Day 4 of my vacation from work, yet probably the first day that I was able to not think of what needs to be done when I got back to the newsroom on Monday. I had promised my boss I wouldnt do any homework, but I had. However, on Thursday I didnt. Instead, I sat on my couch resting my bum knee and listened to the rain on the other side of the big back window. Several hours went by and I just sat and listened and looked at my walls and thanked God that I have walls and a/c and mugs of tea and a big window where I can watch the squirrels and the birds and the rain. I felt my chest rise and fall with my breathing and felt my heart beat. I think I may have even felt my hair and my fingernails growing, but maybe not. The point is I felt 100 percent at rest, mind, body, soul and spirit. Leonardo DaVinci once said, Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgment. So, go some distance away because then the work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and lack of harmony or proportion is more readily seen. DaVinci, as you know, was no slacker. Not only was he an artist, but an engineer and city planner, a scientist, inventor and architect. I think most people believe the Christian life is about working for God, doing good and building Gods kingdom on earth, and it is. But first its about rest. Thousands of years ago the Lord, speaking through the prophet Isaiah, told the Israelites, In repentance and rest is your salvation; in quietness and trust is your strength (Isaiah 30:15). Jesus told the people of his day, Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and youll recover your life. Ill show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I wont lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and youll learn to live freely and lightly (Matthew 11:28, The Message). Rest isnt an American virtue. Even our vacations are stuffed with activity and busyness. However, its something God tells us we need. Its food for our souls. I hadnt realized how full my plate had been until I sat down and did nothing. As Christians, our resting is in the work that Christ did for us, in his keeping of the Law and his dying in our place. Its in knowing that we are much loved and that God is, indeed, well-pleased.

The students get hands-on experience with salon customers from color to cuts and beyond.

The salon promotes cosmetology careers in every area, from teacher and esthetician to hair color specialist, make-up artist and nail techs, to spa or salon owner/managers. Not only do we teach our students the latest techniques, trends and styles in hair, makeup and nails, we teach them business and communication skills to ensure they are highly trained and welleducated, prepared to walk into any top salon with confidence and be an asset to that company after they graduate. Over 2,000 guests walk through our doors each month giving students opportunities to perfect their communication skills and receive feedback on their work, said Molly Soltis, director of Marketing. Our 10,000 square foot, New York City inspired facility provides a positive, real-work learning environment that has the feel of an urban salon. Guests are pampered by our Redken-trained students who are taught by creative and motivating Redken-trained educators.

Jim and Penny Rosenburg, SSHS Senior Garrett Young, Phil Scarpelli, and many Circuit 5 Devereux Kids staff, volunteered their time and energies to promote the bounce house and inflatable slide; and to ensure the safety of the children playing on them. Thank you to all the children who came out to play at the Sumter County Beef and Boogie and parents who donated their hard earned money to LPNP for their children to play on the bounce house and inflatable slide. By LPNP hosting the inflatables we were able to raise awareness of our cause. Children were able to play all day on both of the inflatables for a one time donation of $1. Many parents and children expressed their appreciation for the affordability of the entertainment. Watching the children laughing, their smiling faces, and seeing them play without creating a financial hardship on their families was a very fulfilling and rewarding experience. This fundraiser was possible because of Sumter County Chamber of Commerces generous donation of the both the bounce house and inflatable slide.

The Raiders capitalized on 26 Umatilla turnovers as the Sumter players made their record 5-4 overall and 3-0 in Class 4A-District 6. Umatilla is now 3-6 overall. Sumner scored 19 points and Merritt hit 17 for the Raiders. Merritt, who recently signed a scholarship to play softball at the University of Florida, also made six steals and grabbed six rebounds. Sumner had six rebounds and three steals. Both Sumner and Merritt scored five points in the first quarter. The Raiders took a 12-6 lead. Sumner scored five more points in the second period when the Raiders outscored their foes 12-3. The score was 24-9 at halftime. Merritt had eight points and three steals as South Sumter blasted Umatilla 20-13 in the third period. The reserves played most of the fourth quarter, as it was obvious that South Sumter owned this game. They were afraid to make mistakes after the game they played Friday (a loss to local rival Wildwood), said Raider head coach Kimberly Borum. That was a bad game all around. They havent been playing with their best effort. They normally shoot better than this. This year, they are up and down, up and down. Kirsti is taking over for the scoring we used to get from Tasha (Kennerson, the Raiders all-time leading scorer who has graduated). We are 3-0 in the district. We were at the bottom of our ladder Friday and we are trying to climb up. The Raiders are to play another district contest Friday, Dec. 9 when they face Ocala Trinity Catholic there. L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent South Sumter Middle School head football coach John Kinley has been doing this for 17 years. The coach came up with his second straight undefeated 6-0 season in 2011. Kinley said he finds that every year is a challenge especially since he has the kids for just two years. Obviously, whatever he and his coaching staff is doing is working. This year results: South Sumter 44, Crystal River 0 on Sept. 20 James Taylor scored a touchdown, Kinley said. Niq Warthem scored two touchdowns on runs. Matt Simmons scored on a punt return and seventh grade tailback Deriyon Shine made several long runs and a touchdown. Defense was great. It was a total team effort. We have a lot of speed on defense. Montel Presley leads on defense. He plays nose guard. He is 5-10, 260 pounds and real strong. South Sumter 32, Inverness 12 on Sept. 27 Inverness was leading 128 at halftime and were controlling the game, said the coach. Warthem returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. We scored 28 unanswered points. Our depth won that game. The defense played very good. Jeremy Sisco plays quarterback and did a good job of leading our team. South Sumter 56, Wildwood 8 on Oct. 4 The young guys got to play, the coach said. A bunch of different people scored. South Sumter 48, Citrus Springs on Oct. 11 James Taylor and Niq Warthem led with the running, said the coach. The defense had another shutout. Presley and A.J. Edillo led the way. Linebacker Carson Wells was outstanding. South Sumter 42, Lecanto 14 on Oct. 18 It was the same stuff, the coach said. We dominated. South Sumter 22, The Villages Middle 21 We were down 21-0 with two minutes left in the third quarter, the coach said. Warthem and Shine were outstanding. Sisco completed a fourth down pass for the winning touchdown. Linebacker Brian Hudson and Presley were outstanding on defense. It was a great comeback and a very exciting game. Defense was great. It is a hard-working group of kids. They work hard in offseason. Another 6-0 football year L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent Sumter sports Growers Market celebrates second anniversary C ounty extension agent Susan Kelly approached local cities about hosting a farmers market a central location for farmers to sell their food and crafters to vend their homemade creations. It was Wildwood officials that were willing to give the idea a try. They loved it, she said, noting the vote to establish it was unanimous. A board was created and they gave us a six month trial. The Wildwood Growers Market celebrated its second year anniversary last month. I think its amazing, said Kelly, of the markets success. While she stoked the idea, she was quick to point out, Without them (Wildwood) we obviously couldnt have it. Its the city that hired and pays the market manager and the citys parks and recreation department that blocks off the roads around City Hall and takes care of the garbage and other maintenance needs each Saturday. Kellys a firm believer in the community markets and their impact, having done several presentations on them. Its a great place for people to advertise whats going on in the community, she said, noting that groups and organizations are allowed to come out to promote their events. The market is an outlet for farmers and local crafters and provides residents a place to purchase locally grown and locally made items. Over the years, several farms have been represented at the market, including Bennetts. One of the newest producers to set up is X Farms. The actual farm produces hydroponically grown fruits and vegetables and is located between Sumterville and Bevilles Corner off S.R. 471. All the market produce is supposed to be grown within 100 miles of the market. Market manager Jerry Townsend took over as coordinator of the event last year. Kelly said they can always use more vendors, as the seasons change, but said the Wildwood market is one of the best around. The city hosted an anniversary celebration for the market on Saturday, Nov. 19. The event included an anniversary cake and music from WVLG Radio, with Johnny O. The Sumter County Master Gardeners were also on hand to answer gardening questions and Kelly hosted a survey from consumers. Some of the items available during that Saturdays market day included mums, poinsettias and other plants, a variety of fresh produce, handmade kitchen wear, jewelry, walking canes, fresh breads and a collection of honeys. The market is open every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. around and through the City Hall courtyard. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesKim Fielding kneels by some of the mums their farm produces. Along with mums, they offered poinsettias, crotons and more. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesBrian Bocash shows off his some of the stock from his familys 75-year tradition of syrup making. Along with syrups, honeys, se asonings and sauces, Bocash brings a variety of fresh breads. Relatives Sandra and Mildred Todd work their booth and their handmade projects together. Theyve been coming to the market since the beginning. Elwood Albertson shows off some of the walking sticks hes painted and enhanced to sell at his booth.

M ade In The USA. Support American workers! Help save and create American jobs! You may be asking yourself how these slogans apply to a Critter Chatter column. As an American, I am very concerned about products that were once made in our country, and are now being made overseas which is causing a critical shortage of jobs for Americans. As a concerned pet parent, I worry about the quality and safety of pet food, toys, and other pet products. With the past recalls of Chinese products, which included pet foods and treats, along with other unrelated products to the pet industry, more and more Americans are taking a closer look at where products are made. I personally believe that pet products made in America are safer and of better quality. When shopping in local stores, read the product labels to see where the items are being made. Although it is hard to find Made in the USA products, it is not impossible. Matter of fact, I was surprised to find how many American made products I was able to find right here in our local stores. Take the time and effort to search out Made in the USA products, and ask your local store managers to carry more American made products. If stores see an increase in sales of American products and listen to their customers requests, more American jobs can be created. Internet access is making it more accessible for us all to stand up and support American workers and buy products Made in America. Just put in the search words American made pet products and you will get a long list of quality items and foods for not only dogs and cats, but birds, ferrets, reptiles, and horses too. Quality and affordable pet items range from food to bedding, furniture, clothing, bowls, leashes, hiking and swimming gear, etc. The list goes on and on, and all are made in America and support working Americans. We have the power to turn this economy around. Start now. This holiday season, and all year long, when shopping for your pet, buy American! The future of our country as well as the health and well-being of our beloved pets depend on us.

On July 15, 1987, Mobleys body was found face down and tied up with a bed sheet, in a wooded area off County Road 475, near Lake Panasoffkee. It was just after sunrise, but authorities believe Mobley was killed before 1 a.m. that morning. He died from blunt force trauma to the head. Mobley, who lived in Lake Panasoffkee, worked as the electronics manager for the Bushnell Walmart. For nearly two decades the case remained unsolved, but in 2006, authorities linked Carl Dausch to Mobleys murder through DNA found on evidence taken from Mobleys car. The successful link came when Dausch, now 53, was incarcerated in an Indiana state prison on unrelated charges. He was brought back to Sumter County in 2008 to face charges of premeditated murder and sexual assault. His trial is scheduled to begin this week in the Sumter County Judicial Building in Bushnell. Although unrelated, at least one of the charges he was convicted on in Indiana was similar he was serving a 60-year prison sentence for sexual assault and kidnapping, according to sheriffs office reports. He has been in custody since 1989. Dausch was reportedly visiting Central Florida with family members around the time of Mobleys murder. According to information the sheriffs office released after Dauschs indictment in 2006: After visiting Walt Disney World, an argument caused family members to leave Dausch, who was 29 at that time. After he and his family members parted ways, Dausch began hitchhiking. Authorities believe that at some point, Mobley picked him up Dausch hitchhiking picking up hitchhikers was something Mobley was known to do. Later on the day that Mobleys body was found, his Honda Accord was discovered in White House, Tenn. At the time, an officer spotted a white man, now believed to be Dausch, but police were not suspicious until they found out the vehicle was Mobleys. Several cigarette butts and a palm print were among evidence taken from Mobleys vehicle. Mobleys wallet was found a week after the murder by a Department of Transportation employee mowing grass along Interstate 75 near Carl Dausch WILDWOOD CELEBRATES WILDWOOD CELEBRATES Photos by TAMMY FORE/Sumter County TimesSanta and Mrs. Claus are shown with their reindeer and some guest riders during the Wildwood Christmas parade on Saturday.

Panasoffkee land issue troubles community The property, already owned by the county, includes almost 600 acres at the end of County Road 482S, off County Road 489 in Lake Panasoffkee. It abuts Interstate 75. Its not exactly your typical land use request. While the County Commission is the applicant for a controversial land use request in Lake Panasoffkee, it will also be the board that decides whether the request is approved or not. The property, already owned by the county, includes almost 600 acres at the end of County Road 482S, off County Road 489 in Lake Panasoffkee. It abuts Interstate 75. The current zoning is agricultural and the land is used, in part, as a dredge spoil site from the recent restoration work in Lake Panasoffkee. The County Commission, by way of its county administrator, Bradley Arnold, is requesting a major special use permit for the land that surrounding landowners are protesting. The parcel was transferred to the county in 2009 in an agreement with the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The agreement stipulates that the land, known as the Lake Panasoffkee Spoil Site, could be used as a public shooting range. It also stipulates that the land must be used to serve the public benefit. The water district deterBOBREICHMAN Editor Vickers party set at medical center Last year, more than 1,000 youngsters turned out for a very special Christmas party in Sumterville. This year is expected to be no different as children of all ages flock to the 8th annual Laura Vickers Christmas for Kids Party on Saturday, Dec. 10, at the Thomas E. Langley Medical Center, on U.S. 301. The event is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. with plenty of entertainment, games, free food, bounce houses and bicycle drawings to name a few. Youngsters can also expect a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus during the festivities. Established for children and their families, the Laura Vickers party was launched by Vickers, a Langley employee who was killed in a car accident. Seeing the challenges faced by children in the community who needed help the most, Vickers decided to throw a party for the children involved in Langleys Healthy Start Program. Not long after the holidays in 2004, Vickers was killed by a drunk driver. The medical center continued the annual Christmas party, naming it after Vickers. Donations can still be made to the event, for information contact Paul Quinn at 793-5900 extension 2945. BOBREICHMAN Editor See TRIALPage 2 See LAND Page 2

mined that the acreage may be used for a public trap and skeet range, public shooting range and a police training facility. It also states that a portion of the land could be used for the treatment of wastewater or discharge of reclaimed water. In Arnolds application for the major special use designation several uses are being proposed. The propertys large acreage and rural location results in few neighbors and provides room for generous setbacks and buffers, according to the application. These are desirable traits for a firing range that enhance public safety. These same traits result in access from a rural road. Like many rural roads, C.R. 482 has little traffic volume. Any active use of the subject property would likely increase the traffic load by more than the five percent limit. The road would be assessed to determine if improvements would be necessary to serve the increase volume of traffic, the application states. So how is it that the County Commission will be making a decision on its own application? Well, technically, the board isnt required to go through the permitting process at all, according to Arnold. The board is exempt from going through the process, he said. But, I did recommend to the board that they go through the process to provide a good opportunity for residents to voice concerns that they have living in proximity to the spoil site. Its better to have public comment up front before we move forward, he said. While no immediate plans are being proposed for the property, Arnold said the public hearing allows for everything to be open and transparent involving the development process. That public input was demonstrated when the issue was considered by the zoning board on Monday night. Several people addressed the zoning board voicing their concerns that developing the land would increase noise and traffic in their rural neighborhoods. The board was also presented with a petition signed by residents opposed to the plan. While the zoning board has recommended approval, it added several stipulations. The board wants the county to install a natural buffer on the northern berm of the property to cut down on noise and it also wants the county to continue to seek alternative access to the property that would be less intrusive to neighboring residents. The final decision concerning the land will be made by the County Commission on Tuesday, Dec. 13. The board meets at 5:30 p.m. in County Commission chambers at 910 N. Main Street, Room 142, Bushnell.

The judge will decide whether Marquardt will spend his life in prison or be put to death for the brutal 2000 murders of Margarita Ruiz, 72, and her daughter Esperanza Wells, 42. The women were in Ruizs Tarrytown home caring for a toddler-age family member when they were murdered.

Cigarettes contain more than 7,000 chemicals and compounds with over 100 of those found to be toxic and 70 proven to cause cancer (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services). Candy Flavored Tobacco masks the initial harsh reactions experienced when trying tobacco products. According to the American Legacy Foundation, of youth smokers between the ages of 13 and 18, 52 percent have tried candy flavored tobacco. Nearly 60 percent of youth smokers thought that the candy flavored tobacco would taste better. Since October, Sumter County SWAT youth have attended the Webster, Bushnell, and Wildwood City Councils as well as a meeting of the Sumter County Board of County Commissioners. SWAT youth asked each of the City Councils to pass resolutions urging retailers to stop selling Candy Flavored Tobacco. At the Board of County Commission meeting held on Nov. 22, a Proclamation was presented to SWAT urging retailers to stop selling candy flavored tobacco.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER8, 2011 County voting on its own permit? The entire concept can be more than a bit confusing. The County Commission is going through a land use permitting process that it really doesnt even need to go through. The Southwest Florida Water Management District provides land to the county and thinks that a shooting range may be a good use for a portion of the land. They are two of the oddities involved in about 600 acres of land that the county acquired from the water management district back in 2009. Monday night, the county went before its own zoning board to obtain a special use permit for the acreage. Next week, the County Commission itself will decide whether that permit will be granted. What? If youre confused, so are a lot of people. Apparently, the entire reason for all this hoopla is so the public has a good opportunity to comment about the intended use of this property. Well, many of the residents who live near the acreage arent real pleased with the idea of the county having some sort of shooting or skeet range abutting their land. Property owners are concerned that their property values may dip if a shooting range is developed on the site. They also arent very pleased with another possible use for the property a wastewater treatment plant. So, between shooting ranges and wastewater, neighboring residents of this land arent very happy, and they voiced their concerns Monday night during the zoning meeting. They also dont like the idea of their rural roads being impacted continually by large trucks if the land is developed in the ways being considered. One of the water management districts requirements in turning the land over to the county is that it be used for some public use. Thats part of the reason County Administrator Bradley Arnold suggested that the County Commission go through this process in the first place. The county doesnt really need to get this land use permit, and certainly not from itself. Arnold just figured it would be the best way to get public input into the equation. The countys likely to get more input from the public when this bizarre issue goes for a final vote before the County Commission on Tuesday, Dec. 13. That meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in Bushnell.

ACCEPTING MEDICAID INCLUDING CHILDRENS CLEANINGS, FILLINGS AND SEALANTS Now Open on Fridays 0009Z5O 0009Z5M 0009Z5I Commissioner critical of extension agreement The County Commission has agreed to foster a working relationship with Pasco County to enhance agricultural opportunities between both counties, but it wasnt without some concerns expressed by one commissioner. At the Nov. 22 meeting, commissioners agreed in a 4-to-1 vote to approve a memorandum of understanding between the Florida Cooperative Extension Service, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida Board of Trustee and the County Commissions of both Pasco and Sumter County. The agreement is the first written document explaining the relationship between the different groups which in the past had only been supported verbally although Sumter has contributed financially to the arrangement. The agreement established the responsibilities and relationships that exist between the county extension offices and Sumter and Pasco counties. In the past, Citrus and Hernando counties had participated, but neither county is involved in the proposed agreement. Im excited about Sumter and Pasco partnering because the cattle industry really needs this support, County Administrator Bradley Arnold said. And having this relationship between horticulturists and the persons involved in the cattle production process by sharing resources is a strong promotion by the Board of County Commissioners of agribusiness. The agreement specifies that both counties will continue to provide partial funding for extension programs as long as county budget conditions allow support For Sumter, the agreement states that the county would provide 40 percent of funding for the commercial horticulture agent and provide travel support for the position. It also states the county extension office will provide leadership for administration and supervision of extension programs and county extension faculty. While the majority of the board approved the document, Commissioner Doug Gilpin had some criticism of the way the local extension office is operated. I dont care much for their management style, Gilpin said. I prefer they stay on rack with agricultural opportunities and try to turn those into economic opportunities. I dont care for their performance in past history because there hasnt been any performance, he said. Its more a social function, strictly a social function. Commissioner Garry Breeden told Gilpin that with the written agreement, issues of that sort could be addressed. Id like us all to remember this night, Gilpin said. If we dont have drastic improvement then this is not necessarily a good investment.

He and his family are shown here. Young is the son of Robert, Jr. and Deborah Young of Bushnell. Grace notes In the past few years, my husband and I have made it a tradition to eat Christmas dinner at a nearby inn that serves a humungous buffet. Without fail, every time we go I bemoan the fact that my stomach cant accommodate large quantities of food. Ive seen people eat stacks of pancakes the size of Rhode Island and whole sides of beef and think that maybe I can do that too, but I cant. One Christmas I decided I was a big girl and could keep up with the people eating wheelbarrow portions from the buffet; however, I discovered that when you go well past the full point the food tends to overflow. Thankfully, I made it to the ladies room in time. Since then Ive learned my lesson that when I get the sense that if I eat one more bite Ill get sick not to push my luck. I cant handle a plate thats too full. Lest you think this is all about training for marathon holiday eating extravaganzas, its not. This column is about the week-long stay at home vacation I took this past summer and the day it rained, and what I got out of it. That day I woke up with my bum knee swollen and puffy, so I knew it would be a couch day, not that I had anything planned. So I popped some ibuprofens, brewed a huge mug of tea and sat down on the couch to listen to the rain. Theres something soothing about the sound of rain, especially when the TV is off and there are no other distractions. Just a steady, irregular pounding of water from the sky and the occasional whistle of the wind. Several times a year I have a day like this where its quiet and Im still and content. Its often quiet and Im occasionally still, but I rarely remain still. So for it to be quiet, for me to be quiet and still and to be content is to be an occasion to mark on the calendar. It was Thursday and Day 4 of my vacation from work, yet probably the first day that I was able to not think of what needs to be done when I got back to the newsroom on Monday. I had promised my boss I wouldnt do any homework, but I had. However, on Thursday I didnt. Instead, I sat on my couch resting my bum knee and listened to the rain on the other side of the big back window. Several hours went by and I just sat and listened and looked at my walls and thanked God that I have walls and a/c and mugs of tea and a big window where I can watch the squirrels and the birds and the rain. I felt my chest rise and fall with my breathing and felt my heart beat. I think I may have even felt my hair and my fingernails growing, but maybe not. The point is I felt 100 percent at rest, mind, body, soul and spirit. Leonardo DaVinci once said, Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer, since to remain constantly at work will cause you to lose power of judgment. So, go some distance away because then the work appears smaller, and more of it can be taken in at a glance, and lack of harmony or proportion is more readily seen. DaVinci, as you know, was no slacker. Not only was he an artist, but an engineer and city planner, a scientist, inventor and architect. I think most people believe the Christian life is about working for God, doing good and building Gods kingdom on earth, and it is. But first its about rest. Thousands of years ago the Lord, speaking through the prophet Isaiah, told the Israelites, In repentance and rest is your salvation; in quietness and trust is your strength (Isaiah 30:15). Jesus told the people of his day, Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and youll recover your life. Ill show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I wont lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and youll learn to live freely and lightly (Matthew 11:28, The Message). Rest isnt an American virtue. Even our vacations are stuffed with activity and busyness. However, its something God tells us we need. Its food for our souls. I hadnt realized how full my plate had been until I sat down and did nothing. As Christians, our resting is in the work that Christ did for us, in his keeping of the Law and his dying in our place. Its in knowing that we are much loved and that God is, indeed, well-pleased.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Granville Beville 2234 United Daughters Of The Confederacy meets Academy busy in education and community Do you enjoy interacting with people? Work well with your hands and have a creative flair? Those are just some of the questions the Salon Professional Academy puts to their potential cosmetology students. Located in Oxford, the academy is a combination cosmetology education facility and actual salon, serving residents in the local area. The students get hands-on experience with salon customers from color to cuts and beyond. The facility includes a room designed for working up color chemicals, classrooms and enough individual stations on the floor to keep up to 100 students working at a time. The salon promotes cosmetology careers in every area, from teacher and esthetician to hair color specialist, make-up artist and nail techs, to spa or salon owner/managers. Not only do we teach our students the latest techniques, trends and styles in hair, makeup and nails, we teach them business and communication skills to ensure they are highly trained and welleducated, prepared to walk into any top salon with confidence and be an asset to that company after they graduate. Over 2,000 guests walk through our doors each month giving students opportunities to perfect their communication skills and receive feedback on their work, said Molly Soltis, director of Marketing. Our 10,000 square foot, New York City inspired facility provides a positive, real-work learning environment that has the feel of an urban salon. Guests are pampered by our Redken-trained students who are taught by creative and motivating Redken-trained educators. Striving to be a part of Sumter County, the Salon Professional Academy serves students, residents and even the community overall. Last month, they served as a sponsor for the Beef and Boogie, even providing courtesy hair and make-up for pageant contestants. For more information about the facility, call 352753-5511.

Jim and Penny Rosenburg, SSHS Senior Garrett Young, Phil Scarpelli, and many Circuit 5 Devereux Kids staff, volunteered their time and energies to promote the bounce house and inflatable slide; and to ensure the safety of the children playing on them. Thank you to all the children who came out to play at the Sumter County Beef and Boogie and parents who donated their hard earned money to LPNP for their children to play on the bounce house and inflatable slide. By LPNP hosting the inflatables we were able to raise awareness of our cause. Children were able to play all day on both of the inflatables for a one time donation of $1. Many parents and children expressed their appreciation for the affordability of the entertainment. Watching the children laughing, their smiling faces, and seeing them play without creating a financial hardship on their families was a very fulfilling and rewarding experience. This fundraiser was possible because of Sumter County Chamber of Commerces generous donation of the both the bounce house and inflatable slide. Thank you to all involved for your efforts, time and hard work; you are a part of Lake Panasoffkee neighborhood Project engaging the community, strengthening families and protecting children.

Sumner scored 19 points and Merritt hit 17 for the Raiders. Merritt, who recently signed a scholarship to play softball at the University of Florida, also made six steals and grabbed six rebounds. Sumner had six rebounds and three steals. Both Sumner and Merritt scored five points in the first quarter. The Raiders took a 12-6 lead. Sumner scored five more points in the second period when the Raiders outscored their foes 12-3. The score was 24-9 at halftime. Merritt had eight points and three steals as South Sumter blasted Umatilla 20-13 in the third period. The reserves played most of the fourth quarter, as it was obvious that South Sumter owned this game. They were afraid to make mistakes after the game they played Friday (a loss to local rival Wildwood), said Raider head coach Kimberly Borum. That was a bad game all around. They havent been playing with their best effort. They normally shoot better than this. This year, they are up and down, up and down. Kirsti is taking over for the scoring we used to get from Tasha (Kennerson, the Raiders all-time leading scorer who has graduated). We are 3-0 in the district. We were at the bottom of our ladder Friday and we are trying to climb up. The Raiders are to play another district contest Friday, Dec. 9 when they face Ocala Trinity Catholic there. LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent South Sumter Middle School head football coach John Kinley has been doing this for 17 years. The coach came up with his second straight undefeated 6-0 season in 2011. Kinley said he finds that every year is a challenge especially since he has the kids for just two years. Obviously, whatever he and his coaching staff is doing is working. This year results: South Sumter 44, Crystal River 0 on Sept. 20 James Taylor scored a touchdown, Kinley said. Niq Warthem scored two touchdowns on runs. Matt Simmons scored on a punt return and seventh grade tailback Deriyon Shine made several long runs and a touchdown. Defense was great. It was a total team effort. We have a lot of speed on defense. Montel Presley leads on defense. He plays nose guard. He is 5-10, 260 pounds and real strong. South Sumter 32, Inverness 12 on Sept. 27 Inverness was leading 128 at halftime and were controlling the game, said the coach. Warthem returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. We scored 28 unanswered points. Our depth won that game. The defense played very good. Jeremy Sisco plays quarterback and did a good job of leading our team. South Sumter 56, Wildwood 8 on Oct. 4 The young guys got to play, the coach said. A bunch of different people scored. South Sumter 48, Citrus Springs on Oct. 11 James Taylor and Niq Warthem led with the running, said the coach. The defense had another shutout. Presley and A.J. Edillo led the way. Linebacker Carson Wells was outstanding. South Sumter 42, Lecanto 14 on Oct. 18 It was the same stuff, the coach said. We dominated. South Sumter 22, The Villages Middle 21 We were down 21-0 with two minutes left in the third quarter, the coach said. Warthem and Shine were outstanding. Sisco completed a fourth down pass for the winning touchdown. Linebacker Brian Hudson and Presley were outstanding on defense. It was a great comeback and a very exciting game. Defense was great. It is a hard-working group of kids. They work hard in offseason. Another 6-0 football year LARRYBUGG Times CorrespondentSumter sports Growers Market celebrates second anniversary County extension agent Susan Kelly approached local cities about hosting a farmers market a central location for farmers to sell their food and crafters to vend their homemade creations. It was Wildwood officials that were willing to give the idea a try. They loved it, she said, noting the vote to establish it was unanimous. A board was created and they gave us a six month trial. The Wildwood Growers Market celebrated its second year anniversary last month. I think its amazing, said Kelly, of the markets success. While she stoked the idea, she was quick to point out, Without them (Wildwood) we obviously couldnt have it. Its the city that hired and pays the market manager and the citys parks and recreation department that blocks off the roads around City Hall and takes care of the garbage and other maintenance needs each Saturday. Kellys a firm believer in the community markets and their impact, having done several presentations on them. Its a great place for people to advertise whats going on in the community, she said, noting that groups and organizations are allowed to come out to promote their events. The market is an outlet for farmers and local crafters and provides residents a place to purchase locally grown and locally made items. Over the years, several farms have been represented at the market, including Bennetts. One of the newest producers to set up is X Farms. The actual farm produces hydroponically grown fruits and vegetables and is located between Sumterville and Bevilles Corner off S.R. 471. All the market produce is supposed to be grown within 100 miles of the market. Market manager Jerry Townsend took over as coordinator of the event last year. Kelly said they can always use more vendors, as the seasons change, but said the Wildwood market is one of the best around. The city hosted an anniversary celebration for the market on Saturday, Nov. 19. The event included an anniversary cake and music from WVLG Radio, with Johnny O. The Sumter County Master Gardeners were also on hand to answer gardening questions and Kelly hosted a survey from consumers. Some of the items available during that Saturdays market day included mums, poinsettias and other plants, a variety of fresh produce, handmade kitchen wear, jewelry, walking canes, fresh breads and a collection of honeys. The market is open every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. around and through the City Hall courtyard. BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesKim Fielding kneels by some of the mums their farm produces. Along with mums, they offered poinsettias, crotons and more. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesBrian Bocash shows off his some of the stock from his familys 75-year tradition of syrup making. Along with syrups, honeys, seasonings and sauces, Bocash brings a variety of fresh breads. Relatives Sandra and Mildred Todd work their booth and their handmade projects together. Theyve been coming to the market since the beginning. Elwood Albertson shows off some of the walking sticks hes painted and enhanced to sell at his booth. Jess Juwanda looks over the eggplant at one of the vendor tents before buying.

Made In The USA. Support American workers! Help save and create American jobs! You may be asking yourself how these slogans apply to a Critter Chatter column. As an American, I am very concerned about products that were once made in our country, and are now being made overseas which is causing a critical shortage of jobs for Americans. As a concerned pet parent, I worry about the quality and safety of pet food, toys, and other pet products. With the past recalls of Chinese products, which included pet foods and treats, along with other unrelated products to the pet industry, more and more Americans are taking a closer look at where products are made. I personally believe that pet products made in America are safer and of better quality. When shopping in local stores, read the product labels to see where the items are being made. Although it is hard to find Made in the USA products, it is not impossible. Matter of fact, I was surprised to find how many American made products I was able to find right here in our local stores. Take the time and effort to search out Made in the USA products, and ask your local store managers to carry more American made products. If stores see an increase in sales of American products and listen to their customers requests, more American jobs can be created. Internet access is making it more accessible for us all to stand up and support American workers and buy products Made in America. Just put in the search words American made pet products and you will get a long list of quality items and foods for not only dogs and cats, but birds, ferrets, reptiles, and horses too. Quality and affordable pet items range from food to bedding, furniture, clothing, bowls, leashes, hiking and swimming gear, etc. The list goes on and on, and all are made in America and support working Americans. We have the power to turn this economy around. Start now. This holiday season, and all year long, when shopping for your pet, buy American! The future of our country as well as the health and well-being of our beloved pets depend on us.
