Seven Sumter County teachers were recently awarded Splash! school grants through the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Mary Margaret Hull, district lead communications coordinator, attributes the effectiveness of the grant program in Sumter County to the strong partnership with Sumter County Schools. Christine Burk, career academy specialist for Sumter County Schools, serves as the Districts liaison to teachers and helped get the word out. The District recognizes the critical role STEM education science, technology, engineering and mathematics plays in preparing students for the future, said Hull. With the help of the grant program, students will learn the importance of protecting and conserving Floridas water resources through STEMbased education projects. The Sumter County awardees are: Angela Sovercool, Bushnell Elementary School, will receive $954. Students will conduct field studies, learning about the need to protect freshwater resources. Tiffany Ward, Bushnell Elementary School will receive $1,910. Students will learn how freshwater resources are found within the water cycle, how they are nonrenewable and how they are affected by severe weather. Lynn Thomas, Webster Elementary School, will receive $2,005. Students will participate in a study of their local watershed to build an understanding of water resources. Benachoice Caruthers, Wildwood Elementary School, will receive $844. Students will plant seedlings in container gardens, build a watershed model to study the effects of pollutants and docRichard Bradleys relatives Vernita Parson-Edwards and James Perry Mobley (center) unveil the new street sign as Bushnell Clerk Joy Coleman (left), Mayor Bill Spaude and City Manager Vince Ruano watch. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesHoward Lowerys extended family is shown beneath the unveiled sign, with its new name. Family members are Lowerys daughter Dianne York with her husband James, his grandson Lance with wife Heather and their two daughters Adison and Emily; the late Lowerys son, Danny and city officials City Manager Vince Ruano, City Clerk Joy Coleman and Mayor Bill Spaude. Seminole warriors and soldiers relive the Dade Massacre on Jan. 7 and Jan. 8, 2012, at Dade Park. Cannon and musket fire will rattle over Bushnell on Saturday, Jan. 7 and Sunday, Jan. 8, 2012. Each year, the Dade Battlefield Society, Inc. and the Florida Park Service produce one of the finest battle reenactments in the state of Florida recreating the historic and tragic events of the first battle of the Second Seminole War. This year marks the 32nd consecutive year this award-winning reenactment of this historic event has been presented. Admission is a $5 donation per person, and children under age 6 are admitted free. Parking is on private property at $2 per vehicle. Gates open to CITY STREETS OF HONOR The renaming of two city streets last week, was part of an effort to pay tribute to past community leaders. Bushnell city officials renamed two streets one in honor of the late Howard Lowery and the other in honor of the late Richard Bradley. Council members unanimously agreed to rename C.R. 609, Lowery Street and C.R. 559, Bradley Street. The ceremonies took place on Tuesday, Dec. 13 with family and friends gathered for the unveilings as City Manager Vince Ruano spoke to the crowd. Howard LoweryLowery served as Bushnells mayor from 1981 to 1982 and during that time made some sound decisions that would propel the City of Bushnell into the future. He was quoted during one council meeting as saying they would be removing the word cant from the council dictionary. He was instrumental in bringing the first cable franchise into the city and earning the city a franchise fee on the cable; negotiating the first territorial agreement with Sumter Electric: hiring women as firefighters, adding the water main extension for the South Sumter Shopping Center, the Jumper Point Subdivision.

The Dade Battlefield Historic State Park is a national historic landmark located outside Bushnell off County Road 476 between I-75 and U.S. 301. Take exit 314 from I-75 and follow the signs to the park then follow the signs to the parking area on County Road 650 off o U S. 301. On December 28th in 1835, at the site of the present day Dade Battlefield Historic State Park, Major Francis Langhorne Dade, seven officers and 100 soldiers were ambushed by 180 Seminole warriors. Dade and his men, under orders to reinforce the garrison at Fort King near present day Ocala, were attacked after a five day march from Fort Brooke, on the shores of Tampa Bay. The fateful battle, which became known as Dades Massacre, marked the beginning of the seven year war between the United States and the Seminole Nation. It was an unpopular conflict that introduced U.S. soldiers to jungle warfare and cost the government 1,500 men and $30 million. Close to 200 living historians and reenactors are expected to travel from all parts of Florida and as far away as Oklahoma and Ohio, to commemorate Dades Battle with this historical reenactment. The battle begins at 2 p.m. each afternoon and is on the edge of a 40-acre pine barren within sight of the actual historic battleground. Spectators watch this dramatic event from a comfortable sloping viewing mound with bleachers. An historic battle narration accompanies the unforgettable battle. Average yearly attendance is over 3,000. The weekend will be filled with historic experiences, such as infantry maneuvers and a color ceremony. A narrative Visitors Center is in the park and visitors can walk the battleground and the actual Fort King Road. Visitors may also walk through soldier and Seminole encampments and talk with the reenactors. Skilled artisans will demonstrate arts and crafts of historical interest. The reenactment is produced and organized by the Dade Battlefield Society, Inc., a volunteer and nonprofit organization, in cooperation with the Florida Park Service. For more information contact the Park Manager Bruce Whiting at 793-4781 or Society PresidentSteven Rinck at 5340002. BATTLE continued from Page 1 ument water savings at home. Carole LaViolette, Wildwood Elementary School, will receive $417. Students will make water cycle posters and water filtration models, learning about human impacts on the freshwater environment. Cheryl McKinney, Wildwood Elementary School, will receive $873. Students will study the importance of water and visit a park where people and animals depend on water for survival and recreation. Connie White, Wildwood Elementary School, will receive $866. Students will learn about freshwater resources and the effects of pollutants. This year 157 Splash! grants were awarded across the Districts 16 county region to educate students on Floridas water. The goal of the Splash! school grant program is to provide teachers with funding to enhance student knowledge of freshwater resources issues. Splash! school grants provide up to $3,000 per school on a reimbursement basis and are available to public, charter and private school teachers. Past Splash! grant projects include student monitoring of local water quality, environmental field studies and outreach campaigns designed to encourage water conservation. In addition to Splash! grant funding, the District offers free teacher professional development workshops and curriculum materials. The publications are correlated to Floridas Next Generation Sunshine State Science Standards and can also be ordered on the Districts website at WaterMatters.org/publications/. SPLASH continued from Page 1 Vince Ruano was emotional as he spoke about Lowery, especially as he recalled that it was Lowery that hired him and handed him the literal keys to Bushnell City Hall exactly 30 years ago this month. Both families noted what an honor it was to have the streets named after their family members. Richard Leonard Bradley Bradley was a longtime resident of Sumter who served the community in various ways, including years as the countys agricultural agent a job he retired from in 1973. He served on the boards for the Evergreen Cemetery Association and the Sumter County Zoning and Adjustment. He was president of the SER (Striving for Equal Rights) Club, a member of the both the state and national county agent associations, the Sumter County Voters League, on the Selective Service board and an advisor for registrants. He organized the Sumter County Farmers Market Cooperative of Royal, Inc., was a leader in keeping city neighborhoods clean, worked with Sumter County 4-H and was a deacon at the United Church of God in Christ in Bushnell. In 1969, he was named Man of the Year by the National Negro County Agents Association. He will always be remembered by those who knew him as a man who loved to help people in any way that he could.

Police report The following arrests are included in the Sumter County Sheriffs Office arrest reports: Local kids Shop with a Cop Fifteen years ago, Pete Peterson started a program to help Lake County children become more comfortable around police officers. Its not uncommon for children to relate law enforcement with handcuffs, making arrests or arriving when a home or community situation is negative. Peterson wanted children to get to know the officers in a different light, so he created Shop with a Cop, according to his son Vincent. Local businesses in each community donate to help fund a youth shopping spree for Christmas and The law enforcement officers who participated in the shopping venture are shown with Santa. They are (seated, left to right) program coordinator Debbie Peterson, Santa, law enforcement representatives Sean Watson and Gloria Terry; (standing back, left to right) Richard Callaway, Mike Voss, Richard Boyher, H.D.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 29, 2011 Process starts to clarify funding roles for care H opefully, the recent clarification by the Attorney Generals Office will pave the way for a smooth relationship between Sumter County government and LifeStream Behavioral Service, the agency that provides mental health services to the county. Last fall, LifeStream representatives got a big surprise when they made their standard $90,000 annual budget funding request to the County Commission. Instead of getting the funds, the agency found itself in the middle of a county muddle about just how much county officials should be funding the agency. The whole problem boiled down to not having a clearly documented state procedure of how much the county should pay LifeStream for its services. The quandary left LifeStream representatives in a panic because their request, as it had been done in the past, was made close to the time commissioners were in budget hearings to determine how county funds will be spend during the 2011-2012 fiscal year that started on Oct. 1. With clarification from the Attorney Generals Office in hand last week, County Administrator Bradley Arnold is scheduled to begin meeting with mental health care providers to formulate a written agreement. In the meantime, LifeStream did receive its funding for the year, but not without some alarming moments that probably could have been avoided with more coordination and communication between the county and LifeStream substantially earlier than during county budget preparation time. A memorable quote I believe this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. should be printed as a reminder about peace during this season. "If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective. No individual can live alone; no nation can live alone, and as long as we try, the more we are going to have war in this world. Now the judgment of God is upon us, and we must either learn to live together as brothers or we are all going to perish together as fools." Martin Luther King Jr Thank you. Nancy Bell Oxford, FL A Golden Opportunity This Christmas Season This Christmas season will be one to remember for many devoted people, some who care for the elderly and some who rescue animals. It began on November 18th, when the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County received an email amongst many in a network of people and agencies helping seniors in need within our community. Home Instead Senior Care in Leesburg contacted MidFlorida Community Services explaining that an elderly resident in Wildwood, Jean, recently had her beloved Golden Retriever pass away and she was in hope of finding another adult Golden to train her to assist in her daily life. A few weeks went by, yet this request was kept in mind as the Society receives many specific requests they try to address if possible. As the HS/SPCAs Animal In-Take Coordinator Sheri Evans makes regular visits taking in adoptable animals from Sumters Animal Control facility, she would rescue and place them within the Societys foster network until their adoption. The blessing of this specific situation was that Ms. Evans noticed a sweet mature female Golden Retriever named Shalimar, a very recent owner surrender, in one of the kennels. Most senior animals have poorer chances for adoption as there are tragically so many younger animals not even being given a chance at a happy forever life with someone. So this dogs odds were very low for adoption if it werent for this Golden opportunity! The fates must have heard their wishes just at the right time when they needed each other. Ms. Evans immediately contacted Cheryl Courtright, Manager of Comfort Keepers in The Villages, who facilitated the adoption process and made it possible for Jean and Sheri to conduct an interview then arrange for the clandestine pairing of Jean with Shalimar on Friday, December 16th. Needless to say, Christmas came early for both of them and it was love at first sight! Shalimar sat next to Jean and gently offered her paw with gratitude and love for another blessed chance. Jean smiled from ear to ear finding a new best friend as well to share their days together. The Humane Society/SPCA couldnt be happier knowing that they helped better two more lives. This is what its all about. The Society encourages adoptions of older animals because they are more than likely already housebroken, calm and reliable. Caring for them can be easier and less stressful than younger pets and not require the added attention or training as it does to raise a younger pet. If you wish to support the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County in their efforts to better the lives of both people and animals, you can contact them at www.hsspca.org, info@hsspca.org or 352-7939117. Their mailing address is PO Box 67 Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538. PSWe here theyre doing wonderfully and getting to know each other! This will be a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for this new family! Process leads to promotions After a grueling assessment process which included; a written exam, tactical incident management scenarios, managing negative employee behavior, in box processing and interviews; four in house Sumter Fire and Rescue employees reigned successful in receiving recommendation for promotion. Three of these employees will serve as full time career Lieutenants, and one will serve as a lieutenant within the reserve member ranks. Damon Allen, Christopher Helbig and Justin Thalgott will serve in the career positions, and Robert Wozniak will fill the reserve member role, as he is currently a career employee with a neighboring fire department. Each member demonstrated their ability to fulfill the rigors of the position. Due to the myriad of tasks which must be performed on a daily basis across the organizations 500+ square mile response area, the department recognized the need for Company Officer positions to help ensure those tasks are accomplished. While most lieutenant positions are often limited in their scope to supervising one crew or station, and in a limited response area; the composition of Sumter County necessitates this position be responsible for multiple stations and a large response area. The many essential position functions outlined in the lieutenant job description indicate the high level of responsibility these new lieutenants will carry out. The prerequisites for the job further indicate the significance of the position: Basic Firefighter and EMT requirements, with a minimum three years experience, State of Florida Pump Operator and Fire Officer I certification and an associates degree within two years of their promotion date.

When he had not returned after darkness the Sheriffs Office was called. Along with Officer Kenneth Ellingham and K-9 Cooper, Sergeant Barefield responded to the rural area of Sumter County where the man was last seen. About 14 hours after the man entered the woods, K9 Cooper picked up his track. It took another hour to find the man. He was lying on the ground, but alive and well. Afterward, the man's son commented, Those two dog boys gave my dad the best Christmas gift everhis life. Pictured are Sumter CI Sgt. Barefield and CO Ellingham with K-9 Cooper.

law enforcement officers spend the time helping them pick out their gifts. While its the 15th year for the program in Lake County, its the second in Sumter and Saturday, Dec. 17 was Shop with a Cop day in Sumter. Forty children and teens from the local communities were selected for the sprees and law enforcement officers from Bushnell, Wildwood, Coleman and the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex did the shopping with them. Its not only good for the community and helps the families, its one of the few times that law enforcement can interact with the public on a good note, said Bushnell officer Gloria Terry. That Saturday, Terry first shopped with a little boy who just fell in love with the bike he found. It was just his face it brought tears to the mom and set the day off right, she said of the experience. The children who get to go shopping are selected by law enforcement, because they best know their community and the families, explained Peterson and his sister-in-law Debbie. While the senior Peterson has since retired, his desire has been for the family Debbie, Vincent and brother Brian) to continue it. Peterson said its Debbie that coordinates and really works the program. Shes the backbone. The officers who spent time shopping with children were Sean Watson, Gloria Terry, Mike Voss, Sean Watson, Bushnell Chief Joyce Wells, Richard Callaway, Richard Boyher, H.D.

Report by Donna and Steve Lind Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee: 201 Anglers Bass Fishing: 189 Bass caught 234 Bass Released: 220 Pan Fish caught: 173 Pan Fish eaten: 173 The weather has warmed which has slowed down the Crappie fishing a bit, but the bass fishing, blue gill and catfish is smoking, particularly the bass fishing. Matt Marcantoni is shown with a couple of nice fish caught last week. He also got a lunker 11.2 pounder caught on Friday. As I believe I mentioned in last weeks report, Mark was featured in The Lunker Club of the national magazine Bassmasters in the December 2011 issue. He caught a 12 pound 6 ounce bass right in front of Colemans Landing on a Sweet Beaver artificial lure. Mark caught this baby in February of this year about 50 yards in front of Colemans landing. In addition, Wayne Powell was fishing with Captain Neal Bedford on Tuesday, December 20th and landed this nice 7 pounder Wayne landed this baby right at twilight and (as you can see in the photo) he literally fell asleep during his photograph. Probably due to too much Christmas shopping! Cecil Hicks landed a nice 6 pounder on Thursday, December 22nd fishing open water literally 100 yards of Tracys Point. He caught it on a watermelon seed worm same as everyone else. We welcome our returning visitors from the North. Good luck and good fishin.

Royalty reigns in the Panasoffkee Christmas Parade Peace On Earth To AllChristmas The celebration of the birth of Jesus, the gathering of family and friends, and peace on earth for all. Hanukah The festival of lights, a celebration with family and friends, and a time for peace. Peace on earth for all. That is what I wish for. Peace for all living creatures, human and non-human. We humans have the choice to choose compassion and respect for each other and all living beings. But we also have the capacity to be cruel and cause loneliness, suffering, hardship, and death. We are the stewards of the animals and the environment. Our actions can create richness to life, and enhance all that surrounds us. Or we can choose to be selfish, and not think of helping others or doing what is good for our community. This holiday season, when we all have the feeling of joy and compassion in our hearts, I wish for those feeling to extend beyond the holiday, and to become permanent within us. I wish for us all to choose to live life with compassion, respect, and responsibility. I wish to see the end of the homeless plight for both humans and animals. My wish is to see the end of euthanasia as a means to control the problem of pet overpopulation. My hope is to know that all orphaned animals will find a loving home. But hopes and wishes only come true when we act upon them. We have the ability to give the animals in our care a happy and fulfilling life. And we have the ability to help others less fortunate then us by volunteering our time or donating our money, not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year. We each can make a huge difference in the life of orphaned animals. Dont just sit at home waiting for things to change, do something about it! Get involved! Call the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County at 352-7939117 and ask what you can do to help. Peace on earth for all lets make it a reality! Critter chatter L INDAG RAVES Special to the Times

Bushnell city officials renamed two streets one in honor of the late Howard Lowery and the other in honor of the late Richard Bradley. Council members unanimously agreed to rename C.R. 609, Lowery Street and C.R. 559, Bradley Street. The ceremonies took place on Tuesday, Dec. 13 with family and friends gathered for the unveilings as City Manager Vince Ruano spoke to the crowd.Howard LoweryLowery served as Bushnells mayor from 1981 to 1982 and during that time made some sound decisions that would propel the City of Bushnell into the future. He was quoted during one council meeting as saying they would be removing the word cant from the council dictionary. He was instrumental in bringing the first cable franchise into the city and earning the city a franchise fee on the cable; negotiating the first territorial agreement with Sumter Electric: hiring women as firefighters, adding the water main extension for the South Sumter Shopping Center, the Jumper Point Subdivision.

The Dade Battlefield Historic State Park is a national historic landmark located outside Bushnell off County Road 476 between I-75 and U.S. 301. Take exit 314 from I-75 and follow the signs to the park then follow the signs to the parking area on County Road 650 off o U S. 301. On December 28th in 1835, at the site of the present day Dade Battlefield Historic State Park, Major Francis Langhorne Dade, seven officers and 100 soldiers were ambushed by 180 Seminole warriors. Dade and his men, under orders to reinforce the garrison at Fort King near present day Ocala, were attacked after a five day march from Fort Brooke, on the shores of Tampa Bay. The fateful battle, which became known as Dades Massacre, marked the beginning of the seven year war between the United States and the Seminole Nation. It was an unpopular conflict that introduced U.S. soldiers to jungle warfare and cost the government 1,500 men and $30 million. Close to 200 living historians and reenactors are expected to travel from all parts of Florida and as far away as Oklahoma and Ohio, to commemorate Dades Battle with this historical reenactment. The battle begins at 2 p.m. each afternoon and is on the edge of a 40-acre pine barren within sight of the actual historic battleground. Spectators watch this dramatic event from a comfortable sloping viewing mound with bleachers. An historic battle narration accompanies the unforgettable battle. Average yearly attendance is over 3,000. The weekend will be filled with historic experiences, such as infantry maneuvers and a color ceremony. A narrative Visitors Center is in the park and visitors can walk the battleground and the actual Fort King Road. Visitors may also walk through soldier and Seminole encampments and talk with the reenactors. Skilled artisans will demonstrate arts and crafts of historical interest. The reenactment is produced and organized by the Dade Battlefield Society, Inc., a volunteer and nonprofit organization, in cooperation with the Florida Park Service. For more information contact the Park Manager Bruce Whiting at 793-4781 or Society PresidentSteven Rinck at 5340002. BATTLEcontinued from Page 1 ument water savings at home.

Splash! school grants provide up to $3,000 per school on a reimbursement basis and are available to public, charter and private school teachers. Past Splash! grant projects include student monitoring of local water quality, environmental field studies and outreach campaigns designed to encourage water conservation. In addition to Splash! grant funding, the District offers free teacher professional development workshops and curriculum materials. The publications are correlated to Floridas Next Generation Sunshine State Science Standards and can also be ordered on the Districts website at WaterMatters.org/publications/. SPLASHcontinued from Page 1 Vince Ruano was emotional as he spoke about Lowery, especially as he recalled that it was Lowery that hired him and handed him the literal keys to Bushnell City Hall exactly 30 years ago this month. Both families noted what an honor it was to have the streets named after their family members.Richard Leonard Bradley Bradley was a longtime resident of Sumter who served the community in various ways, including years as the countys agricultural agent a job he retired from in 1973. He served on the boards for the Evergreen Cemetery Association and the Sumter County Zoning and Adjustment. He was president of the SER (Striving for Equal Rights) Club, a member of the both the state and national county agent associations, the Sumter County Voters League, on the Selective Service board and an advisor for registrants. He organized the Sumter County Farmers Market Cooperative of Royal, Inc., was a leader in keeping city neighborhoods clean, worked with Sumter County 4-H and was a deacon at the United Church of God in Christ in Bushnell. In 1969, he was named Man of the Year by the National Negro County Agents Association. He will always be remembered by those who knew him as a man who loved to help people in any way that he could.

Police report The following arrests are included in the Sumter County Sheriffs Office arrest reports: Local kids Shop with a Cop Fifteen years ago, Pete Peterson started a program to help Lake County children become more comfortable around police officers. Its not uncommon for children to relate law enforcement with handcuffs, making arrests or arriving when a home or community situation is negative. Peterson wanted children to get to know the officers in a different light, so he created Shop with a Cop, according to his son Vincent. Local businesses in each community donate to help fund a youth shopping spree for Christmas and The law enforcement officers who participated in the shopping venture are shown with Santa. They are (seated, left to right) program coordinator Debbie Peterson, Santa, law enforcement representatives Sean Watson and Gloria Terry; (standing back, left to right) Richard Callaway, Mike Voss, Richard Boyher, H.D.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER29, 2011 Process starts to clarify funding roles for care Hopefully, the recent clarification by the Attorney Generals Office will pave the way for a smooth relationship between Sumter County government and LifeStream Behavioral Service, the agency that provides mental health services to the county. Last fall, LifeStream representatives got a big surprise when they made their standard $90,000 annual budget funding request to the County Commission. Instead of getting the funds, the agency found itself in the middle of a county muddle about just how much county officials should be funding the agency. The whole problem boiled down to not having a clearly documented state procedure of how much the county should pay LifeStream for its services. The quandary left LifeStream representatives in a panic because their request, as it had been done in the past, was made close to the time commissioners were in budget hearings to determine how county funds will be spend during the 2011-2012 fiscal year that started on Oct. 1. With clarification from the Attorney Generals Office in hand last week, County Administrator Bradley Arnold is scheduled to begin meeting with mental health care providers to formulate a written agreement. In the meantime, LifeStream did receive its funding for the year, but not without some alarming moments that probably could have been avoided with more coordination and communication between the county and LifeStream substantially earlier than during county budget preparation time. A memorable quoteI believe this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. should be printed as a reminder about peace during this season. "If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective. No individual can live alone; no nation can live alone, and as long as we try, the more we are going to have war in this world. Now the judgment of God is upon us, and we must either learn to live together as brothers or we are all going to perish together as fools." Martin Luther King Jr Thank you. Nancy Bell Oxford, FLA Golden Opportunity This Christmas SeasonThis Christmas season will be one to remember for many devoted people, some who care for the elderly and some who rescue animals. It began on November 18th, when the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County received an email amongst many in a network of people and agencies helping seniors in need within our community. Home Instead Senior Care in Leesburg contacted MidFlorida Community Services explaining that an elderly resident in Wildwood, Jean, recently had her beloved Golden Retriever pass away and she was in hope of finding another adult Golden to train her to assist in her daily life. A few weeks went by, yet this request was kept in mind as the Society receives many specific requests they try to address if possible. As the HS/SPCAs Animal In-Take Coordinator Sheri Evans makes regular visits taking in adoptable animals from Sumters Animal Control facility, she would rescue and place them within the Societys foster network until their adoption. The blessing of this specific situation was that Ms. Evans noticed a sweet mature female Golden Retriever named Shalimar, a very recent owner surrender, in one of the kennels. Most senior animals have poorer chances for adoption as there are tragically so many younger animals not even being given a chance at a happy forever life with someone. So this dogs odds were very low for adoption if it werent for this Golden opportunity! The fates must have heard their wishes just at the right time when they needed each other. Ms. Evans immediately contacted Cheryl Courtright, Manager of Comfort Keepers in The Villages, who facilitated the adoption process and made it possible for Jean and Sheri to conduct an interview then arrange for the clandestine pairing of Jean with Shalimar on Friday, December 16th. Needless to say, Christmas came early for both of them and it was love at first sight! Shalimar sat next to Jean and gently offered her paw with gratitude and love for another blessed chance. Jean smiled from ear to ear finding a new best friend as well to share their days together. The Humane Society/SPCA couldnt be happier knowing that they helped better two more lives. This is what its all about. The Society encourages adoptions of older animals because they are more than likely already housebroken, calm and reliable. Caring for them can be easier and less stressful than younger pets and not require the added attention or training as it does to raise a younger pet. If you wish to support the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County in their efforts to better the lives of both people and animals, you can contact them at www.hsspca.org, info@hsspca.org or 352-7939117. Their mailing address is PO Box 67 Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538. PSWe here theyre doing wonderfully and getting to know each other! This will be a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for this new family! Process leads to promotions After a grueling assessment process which included; a written exam, tactical incident management scenarios, managing negative employee behavior, in box processing and interviews; four in house Sumter Fire and Rescue employees reigned successful in receiving recommendation for promotion. Three of these employees will serve as full time career Lieutenants, and one will serve as a lieutenant within the reserve member ranks. Damon Allen, Christopher Helbig and Justin Thalgott will serve in the career positions, and Robert Wozniak will fill the reserve member role, as he is currently a career employee with a neighboring fire department. Each member demonstrated their ability to fulfill the rigors of the position. Due to the myriad of tasks which must be performed on a daily basis across the organizations 500+ square mile response area, the department recognized the need for Company Officer positions to help ensure those tasks are accomplished. While most lieutenant positions are often limited in their scope to supervising one crew or station, and in a limited response area; the composition of Sumter County necessitates this position be responsible for multiple stations and a large response area. The many essential position functions outlined in the lieutenant job description indicate the high level of responsibility these new lieutenants will carry out. The prerequisites for the job further indicate the significance of the position: Basic Firefighter and EMT requirements, with a minimum three years experience, State of Florida Pump Operator and Fire Officer I certification and an associates degree within two years of their promotion date.BEYOND SUMTER The Voice of Sumter County since 1881The editorial opinion expressed in the Sumter County Times is the opinion of the news staff of this newspaper.PublisherGerry Mulligan Regional Manager John Provost Editor Bob Reichman204 E.

On Dec. 15, at approximately 6 a.m., Sumter CI K-9 Sergeant Dennis Barefield was notified that the Sumter County Sheriffs Office was in need of his help.On the evening of Dec.14, an elderly gentleman had ventured into a wooded area on his property on foot to do some hunting. When he had not returned after darkness the Sheriffs Office was called. Along with Officer Kenneth Ellingham and K-9 Cooper, Sergeant Barefield responded to the rural area of Sumter County where the man was last seen. About 14 hours after the man entered the woods, K9 Cooper picked up his track. It took another hour to find the man. He was lying on the ground, but alive and well. Afterward, the man's son commented, Those two dog boys gave my dad the best Christmas gift everhis life. Pictured are Sumter CI Sgt. Barefield and CO Ellingham with K-9 Cooper.

law enforcement officers spend the time helping them pick out their gifts. While its the 15th year for the program in Lake County, its the second in Sumter and Saturday, Dec. 17 was Shop with a Cop day in Sumter. Forty children and teens from the local communities were selected for the sprees and law enforcement officers from Bushnell, Wildwood, Coleman and the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex did the shopping with them. Its not only good for the community and helps the families, its one of the few times that law enforcement can interact with the public on a good note, said Bushnell officer Gloria Terry. That Saturday, Terry first shopped with a little boy who just fell in love with the bike he found. It was just his face it brought tears to the mom and set the day off right, she said of the experience.

Report by Donna and Steve Lind Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee: 201 Anglers Bass Fishing: 189 Bass caught 234 Bass Released: 220 Pan Fish caught: 173 Pan Fish eaten: 173 The weather has warmed which has slowed down the Crappie fishing a bit, but the bass fishing, blue gill and catfish is smoking, particularly the bass fishing. Matt Marcantoni is shown with a couple of nice fish caught last week. He also got a lunker 11.2 pounder caught on Friday. As I believe I mentioned in last weeks report, Mark was featured in The Lunker Club of the national magazine Bassmasters in the December 2011 issue. He caught a 12 pound 6 ounce bass right in front of Colemans Landing on a Sweet Beaver artificial lure. Mark caught this baby in February of this year about 50 yards in front of Colemans landing. In addition, Wayne Powell was fishing with Captain Neal Bedford on Tuesday, December 20th and landed this nice 7 pounder Wayne landed this baby right at twilight and (as you can see in the photo) he literally fell asleep during his photograph. Probably due to too much Christmas shopping! Cecil Hicks landed a nice 6 pounder on Thursday, December 22nd fishing open water literally 100 yards of Tracys Point. He caught it on a watermelon seed worm same as everyone else. We welcome our returning visitors from the North. Good luck and good fishin.

In pre-kindergarten in Mrs. Habhabs class Amy Jo Dearman and Elliot Graham Photographs were not available, but Mariah Martinez, William Robinson, Lauren Rice, Courtney Brooks, Courtney Caruso, Cameron Evans and Jazalyn Wright were also selected as classroom royalty. Royalty reigns in the Panasoffkee Christmas Parade Peace On Earth To AllChristmas The celebration of the birth of Jesus, the gathering of family and friends, and peace on earth for all. Hanukah The festival of lights, a celebration with family and friends, and a time for peace. Peace on earth for all. That is what I wish for. Peace for all living creatures, human and non-human. We humans have the choice to choose compassion and respect for each other and all living beings. But we also have the capacity to be cruel and cause loneliness, suffering, hardship, and death. We are the stewards of the animals and the environment. Our actions can create richness to life, and enhance all that surrounds us. Or we can choose to be selfish, and not think of helping others or doing what is good for our community. This holiday season, when we all have the feeling of joy and compassion in our hearts, I wish for those feeling to extend beyond the holiday, and to become permanent within us. I wish for us all to choose to live life with compassion, respect, and responsibility. I wish to see the end of the homeless plight for both humans and animals. My wish is to see the end of euthanasia as a means to control the problem of pet overpopulation. My hope is to know that all orphaned animals will find a loving home. But hopes and wishes only come true when we act upon them. We have the ability to give the animals in our care a happy and fulfilling life. And we have the ability to help others less fortunate then us by volunteering our time or donating our money, not just during the holiday season, but throughout the year. We each can make a huge difference in the life of orphaned animals. Dont just sit at home waiting for things to change, do something about it! Get involved! Call the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County at 352-7939117 and ask what you can do to help. Peace on earth for all lets make it a reality! Critter chatter LINDAGRAVES Special to the Times
