Last week, the citys canvassing board met, along with assistance from County Supervisor of Elections Karen Krauss and her staff, to recount election ballots from the citys December election. The election became the focus of concern because it resulted in more votes being cast than there are city voters. With slightly more than 200 voters participating in the election, the initial vote count exceeded that amount, according to Lester Eberle, city public service director. Last weeks recount, brought the numbers to an accurate accounting and the election outcomes became official, Eberle said. It took a while to do it and make sure everyone was on the same page, he said. The recount took more than four hours. Eberle said he attributes the initial miscount to a number of factors: poll workers had worked about 12 hours while the polls were open and then counted ballots. More voters than expected participated in the December elections. Each ballot had to be hand counted. With the initial counting errors corrected, the final official results for the city council races are: City Council Seat 1 was taken by challenger Richard L. Huff with 120 votes, defeating incumbent Warren Alex Alexander Jr. with 90 votes. City Council Seat 3 was retained by incumbent Cynthia D. Martin with 118 votes, defeating challenger Leland Clay Godwin with 97 votes. City Council Seat 5 was taken by challenger Christine R. Hardin with 127 votes, ousting incumbent Billie Marie Winkles with 85 votes. Two referendum issues were defeated by city voters: The first referendum item would have increased City Council terms from two to four years in office and aligned city election dates with those of the state and county. The second item would have changed city election processes allowing the county to oversee poll workers and the canvassing board. Sybille Hummingbird performs on the flute during the event.

About 40 Native American tribes, thousands of spectators and dozens of vendors and traders recently descended on Webster for the fourth annual Boomers Native American Gathering and Pow-Wow. Some of these people come from as far away as Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Illinois, said pow-wow organizer Stanton Starnes, who goes by Boomer. Throughout the weekend, spectators were treated to a variety of Native American culture with activities like circle dancing, drumming and cross bow making to name a few. About 40 vendors and trading exhibits encircled the pow-wow grounds just opposed the Webster flea market displaying everything from handmade flutes to pelts, from beads to walking sticks. The event began last Friday and continued through Monday.

On Dec. 31, 2011, at approximately 11:43 a.m., Sumter County Deputy Sheriff Peter Glim responded to a 911 hang up call at a residence in the 100 block of Orange Street in Center Hill. During the call, Sumter County dispatchers attempted to speak with a crying female but were unable to communicate due to a language barrier. A translation service was used but during the call, communication was lost. The call was from a cellular phone and dispatchers were able to obtain an address for the residence in the area of the GPS coordinates received when the call originated. Sumter County Deputy Sheriff Peter Glim was dispatched to check on the crying female at the residence. When he arrived, he came into contact with Salavador Resendiz-Villeda, 34, of Garden City, Kansas. A computer check revealed he was wanted in Finney County, Kansas for a 1998 homicide. Resendiz-Villeda was arrested without incident and taken to the Sumter County Detention Center. He is being held in lieu of a $250,000 bond and/or extradition. The 911 call was not related to Resendiz-Villeda, but to an apparent unwanted guest at the residence who left prior to Deputy Glims arrival. Resendiz-Villeda Search continues for armed robbery suspect No arrests have been made in an attempted armed robbery at the Villages Hospital last week. The incident happened at 8:48 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2011, in the north parking lot of the hospital, according to a sheriffs office report. A woman told law enforcement authorities that she had just left her vehicle and was walking across the parking lot when a car pulled along side her, according to the report. The driver, and only occupant of the vehicle, told her to give him her purse while brandishing what appeared to be a semiautomatic handgun. The victim refused and started running which resulted in her falling and suffering minor injuries, the report states. The suspect is described as a black man, medium build, possibly in his mid 30s, with short hair in some type of braids. He was wearing a dark colored long sleeve shirt. The suspects vehicle is described as a small gray passenger car. The suspect never left his vehicle during the incident and was seen leaving the parking lot westbound on Clemente Court traveling southbound on El Camino Real. No additional incidents have been reported. Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Detective Mike Cassidy at (352) 5691622 or Crime Line tips at 1-800-438-8477.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 5, 2012 Add your support to Dade Park I f youve never taken a trip to Dade Battlefield Park in Bushnell, this coming weekend is the time to do it. On Saturday, Jan. 7, and Sunday, Jan. 8, the park plays host to the annual reenactment of first battle of the Second Seminole War. See the calendar of events in this weeks issue for additional information about the twoday event. The reenactment provides a great opportunity to watch and relive the historic battle as re-enactors relive the Dec. 28, 1835, battle where more than 100 soldiers were ambushed by 180 Seminole warriors. Theres horses, cannon fire and plenty of drama during the reenactment. The park presents the event along with the Dade Battlefield Society and they do a fine job of it. For two days, not only are spectators presented with a battle reenactment, they also can peruse plenty of exhibits and displays recreating the era. The park is the perfect setting for the annual event with majestic oak trees, open areas, pavilions and playgrounds and trails. With the state last year considering closing many state parks, Dade Park has certainly stepped up the challenge to keep visitor numbers up and increased its visibility by providing a variety of activities throughout the year. During the past year, the park has hosted movie nights, craft events, nature walks and a variety of nature-related events. The park truly is a scenic area this is hard to beat and so far has been saved from state budget crunches. One New Years resolution that wouldnt be hard to keep would be to visit the park throughout the year. You will find listings of different upcoming events periodically in this newspaper. Make a resolution to support Dade Park events, its one that will not only prove to be enjoyable but will also help the park financially healthy and flourishing. Mr. Gilpin, wheres the social function exactly? After moving to Sumter County five years ago, I became involved in the Master Gardener program. I have done extensive volunteering for the program and have loved every minute of being an unpaid employee for the University of Florida. Through my volunteer efforts, I have spent many hours at the extension office and have seen first hand how dedicated the extension employees are and the value of this program to the community. I have acquired a tremendous appreciation for the education the extension does for the county and would like to reply to Mr. Gilpins comments in a recent article where he stated that the extension is strictly a social function. I have been involved in the Master Gardener program whose purpose is to train volunteers to teach the public correct horticultural practices as recommended by the University of Florida and find solutions to gardening and landscape problems while being stewards for the environment. I have personally volunteered many hours at the plant clinic and answered hundreds of questions about plant and landscape problems. I would certainly not consider this a social function. The annual Agritunity event has been an extremely enlightening opportunity for me. I certainly did not feel that I was attending a social function, but rather an educational event that took a year of planning that involved every facet of the extension department. The Wildwood Farmers Market offers Sumter County residents an opportunity to buy and sell locally produced products. While creating interaction between vendor and buyer, I would certainly not consider this strictly a social function. I have had several opportunities to be a judge at the 4-H functions. Through these opportunities my eyes have been opened to the important and need of 4-H working with youth. Mr. Gilpin, I did not think I was attending a social function when I was judging a 4-H public speaking event and watching these teenagers present their chosen topic in front of an audience. These kids were participating because they wanted to better themselves and develop leadership skills, not because they were at a social function. Mr. Gilpin, please tell me in what part of the extension these social functions take place. I have been involved in too many educational events with the extension and need to expand by social life. Sincerely, Gwendolyn Sears Bushnell All you have to do is just close your eyes for New Vision The public is invited to participate in a free, fun, interactive event in downtown Tavares. Close Your Eyes for New Vision will be held Thursday, Jan. 12 at 9:15 a.m., in front of Tavares City Hall at 201 E. Main Street. This event is expected to last just over one hour. In that short time, participants will have an opportunity to acquire first-hand knowledge of the abilities of persons who are blind or visually impaired. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a friend or co-worker along. Attendees will be grouped in pairs and taught how to be a safe sighted guide for someone with vision loss. Then one person on each team will be blindfolded, or will wear eye goggles that simulate different types of vision loss such as macular degeneration or tunnel vision. Assignments will be given to complete an errand or task with reduced or no vision. Teams will be expected to walk to various downtown Tavares locations nearby, but no one will be required to walk more than 4 to 5 blocks. Shoes appropriate for safe, comfortable walking are recommended. Participants who successfully complete the tasks while blindfolded or wearing the vision simulator goggles will be awarded a T-shirt. This event is organized by New Vision for Independence, a local non-profit organization that provides rehabilitation, community education, and support services for people with low vision or blindness, and their families, to promote independence, acceptance and self-confidence. New Vision serves Lake and Sumter Counties and all of the services are at no cost to the participants. Space for Close your Eyes is limited so please RSVP to New Vision by Jan. 5. Call 435-5040 to RVSP for information about obtaining vision rehabilitation services, or to make a tax-deductible donation.

OPINIONS INVITED Guest column Sumter County Times O pinion Letter to the editor Take Stock in Children More than 3,000 walkers, runners and volunteers joined Take Stock in Children, a statewide non-profit organization with a 16 year history of breaking the cycle of poverty by providing scholarships, mentors and hope, for its inaugural Strides For Education 5K Walk/Run effort on Saturday, November 19. A series of events across the state proved to be a success with over $350,000 raised in support of Floridas low-income youth who wish to pursue a college education. Take Stock in Childrens Strides For Education 5K Walk/Run events took place across Florida on the same day in Bradford, Brevard, Broward/Palm Beach, Collier/Immokalee, Escambia, Franklin, Lake/Sumter, Lee, Miami-Dade, Pinellas and Sarasota counties. The funds raised will be used to help provide college scholarships for the many deserving students that Take Stock in Children serves. With the cost of tuition and other college-related expenses rising significantly, children throughout Florida are struggling more than ever to achieve a higher education, says Richard Berkowitz, State Board Chair of Take Stock in Children and the Strides For Education originator. Strides For Education was a great opportunity for us to engage so many of our students, family members and mentors around the state, as well as gather support from individuals and businesses to help our scholars along the path to success. With a unique public and private model of funding, Take Stock in Children will be able to match the funds raised dollar for dollar to provide many of its students with Florida Prepaid STARS scholarships. Take Stock in Children currently serves nearly 8,000 students in grades 6-12 annually throughout 67 counties in Florida. Take Stock in Childrens Strides For Education 5K Walk/Run statewide sponsors included the Helios Education Foundation, Comcast, Berkowitz Dick Pollack & Brant, Pollo Tropical, Florida Lottery, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida and Staples.

L ast month my husband and I went to Charlotte, N.C., one of our favorite cities. We stayed uptown which I would call downtown, but what do I know? right in the middle of all the tall buildings and skyscrapers. I have a confession to make. I love buildings. I mean, I love, l-o-v-e buildings, like chocoholics love chocolate and pie-aholics love pie. Well, maybe not that much, but I love architecture and design, Gothic arches and flying buttresses. One night during our trip we were out walking uptown and we passed the Hearst Tower building on N. Tryon Street, which happens to be my favorite of favorites of the Charlotte skyline. As I tried the glass front door and found it unlocked, I told my husband, Im going in. He said hed be waiting with bail money to get me out of jail if I got arrested for breaking and entering. I really love buildings. When I walked inside the art deco style structure, tears came to my eyes. Seriously. It was that incredible, and other than walking into my church modern French Gothic awesomeness Id never experienced such a reaction. Of course, it couldve been all the caffeine Id consumed earlier, mixed with the excitement of being on vacation and up past my bedtime. Right inside the door there was a man in a suit (who said the building was open because there were about a half-dozen restaurants and bars inside and, therefore, I wasnt breaking and entering) who told me that the building was built in 2002 and that the bronze stairway and balcony railings had been rescued from Au Bon Marche, a 1920s Paris department store. I also learned that the 47story skyscraper has a reversed floorplate design, which means its wider at the top than at the bottom, giving it an unusual appearance, adding to its coolness factor, in my opinion. The man in the suit let me go upstairs, and I walked around, touching the marble and studied the lines and angles of metal and glass and mirrors. I had a camera with me, but I knew I couldnt capture what I was feeling. Ive since seen professionally taken photos of this building and they dont do it justice. Reading over these words, I realize how silly they sound, but this building stirred something in me. It thrilled me to be able to explore the handiwork of an architectural artist. I really, really love buildings. When my church was building our sanctuary back in 2003, the day the huge pre-fabricated concrete walls went up a bunch of us came out to watch. As a huge crane hoisted the 92-foot wall in place we all ate hot dogs and cheered. Over the next few months, I passed the church every day on my way to work, sometimes stopping and walking through the construction site. One week some of the members got to take markers and write messages and favorite Bible verses on the floor before the carpet was installed. I wrote, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). The sanctuary was completed just before Christmas 2003.

Spreading holiday cheer Helping local families during Christmas time Going green at Lake-Sumter Community College The word green has become part of the universal vernacular when we discuss sustaining our environment and managing natural resources. Such consciousness raising has created careers in fields that study the symbiotic effects created by the planets current and future conditions. If you want to become a part of an important new profession, Lake-Sumter Community College is introducing new courses that will lead to a two-year degree in environmental science technology this spring term, starting Jan. 9, 2012. The new Associate in Science degree, which will formally launch in Fall 2012, includes coursework in environmental sustainability, sampling and regulations, as well as field biology, natural resource management and energy technology. As previously announced, LSCC is in the approval process to offer four-year degrees. After community discussions, workforce surveys and viability research, organizational management, nursing and environmental science technology were selected as the top-three programs most beneficial to Lake and Sumter counties. Organizational management has a targeted debut date of spring term 2013. The nursing initiative will utilize our current partnership with the University of Central Florida. As of fall term 2012, students committing to the UCF bachelors program will have curriculum integrated with that of LSCCs associate degree in nursing, allowing them to earn their BSN in less time and right here at home. LSCCs associate in science degree programs are designed to provide the option for graduates to enter their career field or continue on to a baccalaureate education in that same discipline. With this in mind, LSCCs new two-year environmental science technology degree will provide such a foundation for a future LSCC Bachelor of Applied Science degree. Class schedules, the admissions application and enrollment steps also are available on the website, or visit one of LSCC three campuses.

Dr. Charles Mojock, President of Lake-Sumter Community College discussed plans to expand its academic programs to include four-year degrees. Based on workforce needs, student interest, college facilities and resources, and partner relationships, the colleges Board of Trustees prioritized three degrees: Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Applied Science in Organizational Management and Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Science. The colleges core mission is a student centered learning college having two-year degree/certificates. LSCC offers many opportunities to students from dual enrollment with the local high schools to technical programs and now with a local University and State College to offer four-year degrees in select programs. Sumter County Schools Superintendant Richard Shirley spoke also about the Sumter County school system. The tree is in the seed, stated Shirley, and we are the nutrients from which the seed, our children, grow. He then introduced Christine Burk who spoke about the progress of the Career and Professional Education (CAPE) Academies in Sumter County Schools. The 201112 school year opened with two new academies, bringing the total to nine.

The Changing Lives and Building Futures campaign goes far beyond raising funds, its a broader goal to help establish a stronger culture of giving that affords more opportunities for the students of LSCC, said Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director. During the past 30 years, more than 10,000 students have received a scholarship from the LSCC Foundation, Inc. Many have graduated and have had a significant impact on their fields of expertise, their families and their communities. Our donors are increasingly more aware that a college education from LSCC has positive ripple effects for generations to come in our community. Because of our generous donors, many of these students are where they are today because of a scholarship from the LSCC Foundation, and you can be a part of this positive change by making a donation to the 2011 Annual Campaign. The scholarships provided to me by the LSCC Foundation enabled me to focus on my classes. Its difficult to imagine what it would have been like without scholarships, while trying to balance school, work, and my family. I know one things for sure: I wouldnt have been an LSCC graduate without the help from the Foundation said student Nicholas Raymond. Students unable to make ends meet are often forced to abandon their education. About 7 in 10 students who do not graduate from college, leave because of financial constraints, help us alleviate this barrier for our students. The 2011 Annual Campaign provides financial assistance for need based and merit based scholarships to help students on the path to a college education and a successful career. The cost of colleges has risen over 400% in the last 25 years, so as tough economic times increase the demand for scholarships, LSCC struggles to keep pace with students growing needs. Financial donations from the community are what make the difference in a students life because almost half the students enrolled at LSCC do not qualify for other forms of financial aid. The LSCC Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors is leading the annual campaign under the direction of Gail Baker, Sheriff Bill Farmer, Debbie Moffitt, and Dan Tatro. Each year the LSCC Foundation raises funds from friends and supporters to help keep education at Lake-Sumter Community College affordable and to ensure educational excellence for all students. We are extremely grateful for the tremendous level of support Lake-Sumter Community College receives from its alumni and friends, corporations, foundations and many organizations, said Brandeburg. Private support is very important to the mission of the college, and the generosity of these donors benefits every student, faculty and staff member, and user of LSCCs services. To contribute to this years campaign, donations may be mailed to the Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. at 9501 U.S. Hwy. 441, Leesburg, FL 34788 or make a donation online at http://www.lscc.edu/foundation/Pages/Invest%20Now/On lineGiving.aspx.

Recently, my pastor commented that the reason we built such a beautiful building is because Jesus is beautiful. The building reflects his beauty. My pastor also often says that we did not build the building for ourselves, but for the community, for those who will come some time in the future. Each week as I walk into this magnificently simple yet powerfully artistic place of worship, Im reminded that its God who is the master architect, whos building his church worldwide, not with 92-foot slabs of concrete, but with people. The apostle Peter called the followers of Jesus living stones used to build a spiritual structure. So, not only do I get to explore my love of buildings whenever I go someplace, but as a Christian I actually get to be a building! And not just a building, but part of a city, a city on a hill, as Jesus said. The city of God, for all to see. Truly, what more can a building geek like me ask for?

2012 Another year before us. I am thankful that I have been able to provide a good life for my animals. But as they become another year older, I realize that my seniors time is limited with me now. Rascal, my wire hair terrier mix is going to be 15 years old this coming year. And Rosie, my little Beagle will be 14 years old. Both are experiencing age related health issues, but for right now, their quality of life remains good. My other dogs are no spring chickens either. Their ages range from 10 years old down to 6 years old. All are middle age or older. All are happy and enjoy their lives, having the freedom of a doggie door and a large fenced in yard, they are inside or out as they please. My dogs have traveled around the country with us, and take monthly vacations with us. They are, after all, family. They are our furry kids, who enjoy experiencing the world around them. Through scent, romping, wrestling, and hunting backyard squirrels and lizard, we allow them to live a life of what they were meant to be a dogs life! As far as our donkey, Luigi, and goats are concerned, they have free roam of acres of pasture, shelter from the storm, and plenty of food and water available to them. They live as they were meant to be. All we can hope for in the coming year is that all animals will be able to live their lives in contentment and without hardship. But what will this New Year bring? Still the country is in economic hard times. So many good people want to provide a good home for their animals, but each year it becomes more difficult. When times get tough and families are facing financial burdens, the first to loose their homes are the animals. Shelters become crowded as more and more animals are sadly turned in by their families that can no longer care for them. Animals once in loving homes are confused and depressed now residing in shelters. Sumter Disaster Animal Response Team has been transporting animals from overcrowded shelters to other parts of the country where they are able to be adopted into loving homes once again. Aging animals as well as puppies and kittens are being given another chance to once again be a part of a family. Sumter Disaster Animal Response Teams tag line is: Saving Lives With Every Ride. They are our local team that works nationally and internationally with large animal organizations to re-home the homeless. You can be a part of their life saving transports by making a tax deductable donation to Sumter D.A.R.T., 720 E. Southland Ave., Bushnell, Fl. 33513.

Its probably typical of a holiday weekend, but we were very busy this weekend. If you dont believe that practice and preparation is important please check out our newest fishing guide, Lamar Miller Lamar is available for daily guided fishing trips. For more information just contact Steve Lind at Tracys Point. By the way, Each week I try and include information that I think anglers may have an interest in. This week I am including information regarding various ways to report violators of fishing rules and regulations. I hope you find this information helpful and will take advantage of it If you are like most Florida anglers and boaters, you enjoy your time on the water. Its an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public, said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators. The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC.com/Wildlife Alert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When peoples information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservationminded people dont even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, dont forget to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24hours a day, seven days a week. The real beauty of the program is that violators through court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a violator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators are paying people to turn them in. Good luck and good fishin! Some things fishy Lane and Matthew Bechtel caught some nice bluegill and a few catfish right off the docks at Tracys Point. They were using live big red worms. As you can see, folks at Tracys Point were bringing in the New Year with gusto with our new manager Mo Barton (center) cheering on the group. Lamar Miller caught these with Watermelon seed artificial worms. Visiting Tracys Point from Virginia, Simon and Grace Taylor caught this nice 7 pound bass using a June bug worm. They were fishing with their Dad just in front of Colemans Landing.Critter chatter What will this new year bring for animals? Linda Graves Humane Society

Plantation Christmas was held in Ellenton Sunday, Dec 11. Carol Tomlinson, Tammy Moore and Candy Tilton (perspective member) of the Granville Beville 2234, Bushnell Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy along with Annette Harrell and Charlotte Thompson of the Anna Jackson 224, Tallahassee, decorated the Parlor of the Gamble Mansion owned by Robert Gamble. They were joined by Joyce White on Sunday and served as docents as the Mansion was toured by the public. Decorations used were from the time period of the War Between the States, 1861-1865. Scrub pines, magnolia leaves, oranges, nuts, holly was used as the decorations for the room and the Christmas tree was decorated with homemade ornaments made from scrapes of material and pew dolls made from handkerchief, popcorn strung with cranberrys and dried flowers. The Gamble Mansion is furnished by period correct furniture. Major Robert Gamble and his family came to Florida in the mid 1800s and built the plantation, which took 5 to 6 years (1845-50). He sold the plantation due to declining sugar market and debts. It sold in 1856 and was the only surviving plantation house in South Florida. The United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1925 bought and donated the Gamble Planation to the state a memorial to Judah P Benjamin, who served three Cabinet positions under Confederate President Jefferson Davis during War Between the States. He stayed in May 1865 before escaping the Federal Forces and sailing to England. In 1872, postwar owner George Patten built a wooden, vernacular Victorian style, two story house because he found the mansion in too poor condition for living. In 2002 the state acquired the property which holds the ruins of the plantations sugar mill, one of the Souths largest, and added it to the historic park complex.

Last week, the citys canvassing board met, along with assistance from County Supervisor of Elections Karen Krauss and her staff, to recount election ballots from the citys December election. The election became the focus of concern because it resulted in more votes being cast than there are city voters. With slightly more than 200 voters participating in the election, the initial vote count exceeded that amount, according to Lester Eberle, city public service director. Last weeks recount, brought the numbers to an accurate accounting and the election outcomes became official, Eberle said. It took a while to do it and make sure everyone was on the same page, he said. The recount took more than four hours. Eberle said he attributes the initial miscount to a number of factors: poll workers had worked about 12 hours while the polls were open and then counted ballots. More voters than expected participated in the December elections. Each ballot had to be hand counted. With the initial counting errors corrected, the final official results for the city council races are: City Council Seat 1 was taken by challenger Richard L. Huff with 120 votes, defeating incumbent Warren Alex Alexander Jr. with 90 votes. City Council Seat 3 was retained by incumbent Cynthia D. Martin with 118 votes, defeating challenger Leland Clay Godwin with 97 votes. City Council Seat 5 was taken by challenger Christine R. Hardin with 127 votes, ousting incumbent Billie Marie Winkles with 85 votes. Two referendum issues were defeated by city voters: The first referendum item would have increased City Council terms from two to four years in office and aligned city election dates with those of the state and county. The second item would have changed city election processes allowing the county to oversee poll workers and the canvassing board. Sybille Hummingbird performs on the flute during the event.

Some of these people come from as far away as Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Illinois, said pow-wow organizer Stanton Starnes, who goes by Boomer. Throughout the weekend, spectators were treated to a variety of Native American culture with activities like circle dancing, drumming and cross bow making to name a few.

On Dec. 31, 2011, at approximately 11:43 a.m., Sumter County Deputy Sheriff Peter Glim responded to a 911 hang up call at a residence in the 100 block of Orange Street in Center Hill. During the call, Sumter County dispatchers attempted to speak with a crying female but were unable to communicate due to a language barrier. A translation service was used but during the call, communication was lost. The call was from a cellular phone and dispatchers were able to obtain an address for the residence in the area of the GPS coordinates received when the call originated. Sumter County Deputy Sheriff Peter Glim was dispatched to check on the crying female at the residence. When he arrived, he came into contact with Salavador Resendiz-Villeda, 34, of Garden City, Kansas. A computer check revealed he was wanted in Finney County, Kansas for a 1998 homicide. Resendiz-Villeda was arrested without incident and taken to the Sumter County Detention Center. He is being held in lieu of a $250,000 bond and/or extradition. The 911 call was not related to Resendiz-Villeda, but to an apparent unwanted guest at the residence who left prior to Deputy Glims arrival. Resendiz-Villeda Search continues for armed robbery suspect No arrests have been made in an attempted armed robbery at the Villages Hospital last week. The incident happened at 8:48 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2011, in the north parking lot of the hospital, according to a sheriffs office report. A woman told law enforcement authorities that she had just left her vehicle and was walking across the parking lot when a car pulled along side her, according to the report. The driver, and only occupant of the vehicle, told her to give him her purse while brandishing what appeared to be a semiautomatic handgun. The victim refused and started running which resulted in her falling and suffering minor injuries, the report states. The suspect is described as a black man, medium build, possibly in his mid 30s, with short hair in some type of braids. He was wearing a dark colored long sleeve shirt. The suspects vehicle is described as a small gray passenger car. The suspect never left his vehicle during the incident and was seen leaving the parking lot westbound on Clemente Court traveling southbound on El Camino Real. No additional incidents have been reported. Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to contact Detective Mike Cassidy at (352) 5691622 or Crime Line tips at 1-800-438-8477.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY5, 2012 Add your support to Dade Park If youve never taken a trip to Dade Battlefield Park in Bushnell, this coming weekend is the time to do it. On Saturday, Jan. 7, and Sunday, Jan. 8, the park plays host to the annual reenactment of first battle of the Second Seminole War. See the calendar of events in this weeks issue for additional information about the twoday event. The reenactment provides a great opportunity to watch and relive the historic battle as re-enactors relive the Dec. 28, 1835, battle where more than 100 soldiers were ambushed by 180 Seminole warriors. Theres horses, cannon fire and plenty of drama during the reenactment. The park presents the event along with the Dade Battlefield Society and they do a fine job of it. For two days, not only are spectators presented with a battle reenactment, they also can peruse plenty of exhibits and displays recreating the era. The park is the perfect setting for the annual event with majestic oak trees, open areas, pavilions and playgrounds and trails. With the state last year considering closing many state parks, Dade Park has certainly stepped up the challenge to keep visitor numbers up and increased its visibility by providing a variety of activities throughout the year. During the past year, the park has hosted movie nights, craft events, nature walks and a variety of nature-related events. The park truly is a scenic area this is hard to beat and so far has been saved from state budget crunches. One New Years resolution that wouldnt be hard to keep would be to visit the park throughout the year. You will find listings of different upcoming events periodically in this newspaper. Make a resolution to support Dade Park events, its one that will not only prove to be enjoyable but will also help the park financially healthy and flourishing. Mr. Gilpin, wheres the social function exactly?After moving to Sumter County five years ago, I became involved in the Master Gardener program. I have done extensive volunteering for the program and have loved every minute of being an unpaid employee for the University of Florida. Through my volunteer efforts, I have spent many hours at the extension office and have seen first hand how dedicated the extension employees are and the value of this program to the community. I have acquired a tremendous appreciation for the education the extension does for the county and would like to reply to Mr. Gilpins comments in a recent article where he stated that the extension is strictly a social function. I have been involved in the Master Gardener program whose purpose is to train volunteers to teach the public correct horticultural practices as recommended by the University of Florida and find solutions to gardening and landscape problems while being stewards for the environment. I have personally volunteered many hours at the plant clinic and answered hundreds of questions about plant and landscape problems. I would certainly not consider this a social function. The annual Agritunity event has been an extremely enlightening opportunity for me. I certainly did not feel that I was attending a social function, but rather an educational event that took a year of planning that involved every facet of the extension department. The Wildwood Farmers Market offers Sumter County residents an opportunity to buy and sell locally produced products. While creating interaction between vendor and buyer, I would certainly not consider this strictly a social function. I have had several opportunities to be a judge at the 4-H functions. Through these opportunities my eyes have been opened to the important and need of 4-H working with youth. Mr. Gilpin, I did not think I was attending a social function when I was judging a 4-H public speaking event and watching these teenagers present their chosen topic in front of an audience. These kids were participating because they wanted to better themselves and develop leadership skills, not because they were at a social function. Mr. Gilpin, please tell me in what part of the extension these social functions take place. I have been involved in too many educational events with the extension and need to expand by social life. Sincerely, Gwendolyn Sears Bushnell All you have to do is just close your eyes for New Vision The public is invited to participate in a free, fun, interactive event in downtown Tavares. Close Your Eyes for New Vision will be held Thursday, Jan. 12 at 9:15 a.m., in front of Tavares City Hall at 201 E. Main Street. This event is expected to last just over one hour. In that short time, participants will have an opportunity to acquire first-hand knowledge of the abilities of persons who are blind or visually impaired. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring a friend or co-worker along. Attendees will be grouped in pairs and taught how to be a safe sighted guide for someone with vision loss. Then one person on each team will be blindfolded, or will wear eye goggles that simulate different types of vision loss such as macular degeneration or tunnel vision. Assignments will be given to complete an errand or task with reduced or no vision. Teams will be expected to walk to various downtown Tavares locations nearby, but no one will be required to walk more than 4 to 5 blocks. Shoes appropriate for safe, comfortable walking are recommended. Participants who successfully complete the tasks while blindfolded or wearing the vision simulator goggles will be awarded a T-shirt. This event is organized by New Vision for Independence, a local non-profit organization that provides rehabilitation, community education, and support services for people with low vision or blindness, and their families, to promote independence, acceptance and self-confidence. New Vision serves Lake and Sumter Counties and all of the services are at no cost to the participants. Space for Close your Eyes is limited so please RSVP to New Vision by Jan. 5. Call 435-5040 to RVSP, for information about obtaining vision rehabilitation services, or to make a tax-deductible donation.

A series of events across the state proved to be a success with over $350,000 raised in support of Floridas low-income youth who wish to pursue a college education. Take Stock in Childrens Strides For Education 5K Walk/Run events took place across Florida on the same day in Bradford, Brevard, Broward/Palm Beach, Collier/Immokalee, Escambia, Franklin, Lake/Sumter, Lee, Miami-Dade, Pinellas and Sarasota counties. The funds raised will be used to help provide college scholarships for the many deserving students that Take Stock in Children serves. With the cost of tuition and other college-related expenses rising significantly, children throughout Florida are struggling more than ever to achieve a higher education, says Richard Berkowitz, State Board Chair of Take Stock in Children and the Strides For Education originator. Strides For Education was a great opportunity for us to engage so many of our students, family members and mentors around the state, as well as gather support from individuals and businesses to help our scholars along the path to success. With a unique public and private model of funding, Take Stock in Children will be able to match the funds raised dollar for dollar to provide many of its students with Florida Prepaid STARS scholarships. Take Stock in Children currently serves nearly 8,000 students in grades 6-12 annually throughout 67 counties in Florida. Take Stock in Childrens Strides For Education 5K Walk/Run statewide sponsors included the Helios Education Foundation, Comcast, Berkowitz Dick Pollack & Brant, Pollo Tropical, Florida Lottery, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida and Staples.

Last month my husband and I went to Charlotte, N.C., one of our favorite cities. We stayed uptown which I would call downtown, but what do I know? right in the middle of all the tall buildings and skyscrapers. I have a confession to make. I love buildings. I mean, I love, l-o-v-e buildings, like chocoholics love chocolate and pie-aholics love pie. Well, maybe not that much, but I love architecture and design, Gothic arches and flying buttresses. One night during our trip we were out walking uptown and we passed the Hearst Tower building on N. Tryon Street, which happens to be my favorite of favorites of the Charlotte skyline. As I tried the glass front door and found it unlocked, I told my husband, Im going in. He said hed be waiting with bail money to get me out of jail if I got arrested for breaking and entering. I really love buildings. When I walked inside the art deco style structure, tears came to my eyes. Seriously. It was that incredible, and other than walking into my church modern French Gothic awesomeness Id never experienced such a reaction. Of course, it couldve been all the caffeine Id consumed earlier, mixed with the excitement of being on vacation and up past my bedtime. Right inside the door there was a man in a suit (who said the building was open because there were about a half-dozen restaurants and bars inside and, therefore, I wasnt breaking and entering) who told me that the building was built in 2002 and that the bronze stairway and balcony railings had been rescued from Au Bon Marche, a 1920s Paris department store. I also learned that the 47story skyscraper has a reversed floorplate design, which means its wider at the top than at the bottom, giving it an unusual appearance, adding to its coolness factor, in my opinion. The man in the suit let me go upstairs, and I walked around, touching the marble and studied the lines and angles of metal and glass and mirrors. I had a camera with me, but I knew I couldnt capture what I was feeling. Ive since seen professionally taken photos of this building and they dont do it justice. Reading over these words, I realize how silly they sound, but this building stirred something in me. It thrilled me to be able to explore the handiwork of an architectural artist. I really, really love buildings. When my church was building our sanctuary back in 2003, the day the huge pre-fabricated concrete walls went up a bunch of us came out to watch. As a huge crane hoisted the 92-foot wall in place we all ate hot dogs and cheered. Over the next few months, I passed the church every day on my way to work, sometimes stopping and walking through the construction site. One week some of the members got to take markers and write messages and favorite Bible verses on the floor before the carpet was installed. I wrote, God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20). The sanctuary was completed just before Christmas 2003.

Spreading holiday cheer Helping local families during Christmas time Going green at Lake-Sumter Community College The word green has become part of the universal vernacular when we discuss sustaining our environment and managing natural resources. Such consciousness raising has created careers in fields that study the symbiotic effects created by the planets current and future conditions. If you want to become a part of an important new profession, Lake-Sumter Community College is introducing new courses that will lead to a two-year degree in environmental science technology this spring term, starting Jan. 9, 2012. The new Associate in Science degree, which will formally launch in Fall 2012, includes coursework in environmental sustainability, sampling and regulations, as well as field biology, natural resource management and energy technology. As previously announced, LSCC is in the approval process to offer four-year degrees. After community discussions, workforce surveys and viability research, organizational management, nursing and environmental science technology were selected as the top-three programs most beneficial to Lake and Sumter counties. Organizational management has a targeted debut date of spring term 2013. The nursing initiative will utilize our current partnership with the University of Central Florida. As of fall term 2012, students committing to the UCF bachelors program will have curriculum integrated with that of LSCCs associate degree in nursing, allowing them to earn their BSN in less time and right here at home. LSCCs associate in science degree programs are designed to provide the option for graduates to enter their career field or continue on to a baccalaureate education in that same discipline. With this in mind, LSCCs new two-year environmental science technology degree will provide such a foundation for a future LSCC Bachelor of Applied Science degree. Class schedules, the admissions application and enrollment steps also are available on the website, or visit one of LSCC three campuses.

Dont forget to ask how to get premium exposure in the Member Midway.Education is the topicEducation was the topic at the Chamber Lunch Exchange on December 14, 2011 at the RV Resort at Blueberry Hill in Bushnell. Dr. Charles Mojock, President of Lake-Sumter Community College discussed plans to expand its academic programs to include four-year degrees. Based on workforce needs, student interest, college facilities and resources, and partner relationships, the colleges Board of Trustees prioritized three degrees: Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Applied Science in Organizational Management and Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Science. The colleges core mission is a student centered learning college having two-year degree/certificates. LSCC offers many opportunities to students from dual enrollment with the local high schools to technical programs and now with a local University and State College to offer four-year degrees in select programs. Sumter County Schools Superintendant Richard Shirley spoke also about the Sumter County school system. The tree is in the seed, stated Shirley, and we are the nutrients from which the seed, our children, grow. He then introduced Christine Burk who spoke about the progress of the Career and Professional Education (CAPE) Academies in Sumter County Schools. The 201112 school year opened with two new academies, bringing the total to nine. Within the nine academies, 444 students are receiving instruction which will prepare them for success on industry-recognized certification exams. Burk also encouraged business owners to ask job applicants who have graduated from Sumter County schools if they attended the CAPE Academies. Encourage the applicant to discuss what they learned and how this experience will benefit your company, she stated. Just one more way one small seed can benefit Sumter County!Chamber officers, directors for 2012 year announcedThe Sumter County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors has nominated its slate of officers and directors for 2012.

Change lives and give students something to be thankful for The Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. kicked off their 2011 Annual Campaign: Changing Lives Building Futures on Sept. 14 with the goal to raise $225,000 and thanks to the help of the community, Board of Directors, and Faculty and Staff at LSCC, has already raised over $218,529. The Changing Lives and Building Futures campaign goes far beyond raising funds, its a broader goal to help establish a stronger culture of giving that affords more opportunities for the students of LSCC, said Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director. During the past 30 years, more than 10,000 students have received a scholarship from the LSCC Foundation, Inc. Many have graduated and have had a significant impact on their fields of expertise, their families and their communities. Our donors are increasingly more aware that a college education from LSCC has positive ripple effects for generations to come in our community. Because of our generous donors, many of these students are where they are today because of a scholarship from the LSCC Foundation, and you can be a part of this positive change by making a donation to the 2011 Annual Campaign. The scholarships provided to me by the LSCC Foundation enabled me to focus on my classes. Its difficult to imagine what it would have been like without scholarships, while trying to balance school, work, and my family. I know one things for sure: I wouldnt have been an LSCC graduate without the help from the Foundation said student Nicholas Raymond. Students unable to make ends meet are often forced to abandon their education. About 7 in 10 students who do not graduate from college, leave because of financial constraints, help us alleviate this barrier for our students. The 2011 Annual Campaign provides financial assistance for need based and merit based scholarships to help students on the path to a college education and a successful career. The cost of colleges has risen over 400% in the last 25 years, so as tough economic times increase the demand for scholarships, LSCC struggles to keep pace with students growing needs. Financial donations from the community are what make the difference in a students life because almost half the students enrolled at LSCC do not qualify for other forms of financial aid. The LSCC Foundation, Inc. Board of Directors is leading the annual campaign under the direction of Gail Baker, Sheriff Bill Farmer, Debbie Moffitt, and Dan Tatro. Each year the LSCC Foundation raises funds from friends and supporters to help keep education at Lake-Sumter Community College affordable and to ensure educational excellence for all students. We are extremely grateful for the tremendous level of support Lake-Sumter Community College receives from its alumni and friends, corporations, foundations and many organizations, said Brandeburg. Private support is very important to the mission of the college, and the generosity of these donors benefits every student, faculty and staff member, and user of LSCCs services. To contribute to this years campaign, donations may be mailed to the Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. at 9501 U.S. Hwy. 441, Leesburg, FL 34788 or make a donation online at http://www.lscc.edu/foundation/Pages/Invest%20Now/On lineGiving.aspx.

Recently, my pastor commented that the reason we built such a beautiful building is because Jesus is beautiful. The building reflects his beauty. My pastor also often says that we did not build the building for ourselves, but for the community, for those who will come some time in the future. Each week as I walk into this magnificently simple yet powerfully artistic place of worship, Im reminded that its God who is the master architect, whos building his church worldwide, not with 92-foot slabs of concrete, but with people. The apostle Peter called the followers of Jesus living stones used to build a spiritual structure. So, not only do I get to explore my love of buildings whenever I go someplace, but as a Christian I actually get to be a building! And not just a building, but part of a city, a city on a hill, as Jesus said. The city of God, for all to see.

2012 Another year before us. I am thankful that I have been able to provide a good life for my animals. But as they become another year older, I realize that my seniors time is limited with me now. Rascal, my wire hair terrier mix is going to be 15 years old this coming year. And Rosie, my little Beagle will be 14 years old. Both are experiencing age related health issues, but for right now, their quality of life remains good. My other dogs are no spring chickens either. Their ages range from 10 years old down to 6 years old. All are middle age or older. All are happy and enjoy their lives, having the freedom of a doggie door and a large fenced in yard, they are inside or out as they please. My dogs have traveled around the country with us, and take monthly vacations with us. They are, after all, family. They are our furry kids, who enjoy experiencing the world around them. Through scent, romping, wrestling, and hunting backyard squirrels and lizard, we allow them to live a life of what they were meant to be a dogs life! As far as our donkey, Luigi, and goats are concerned, they have free roam of acres of pasture, shelter from the storm, and plenty of food and water available to them. They live as they were meant to be. All we can hope for in the coming year is that all animals will be able to live their lives in contentment and without hardship. But what will this New Year bring? Still the country is in economic hard times. So many good people want to provide a good home for their animals, but each year it becomes more difficult. When times get tough and families are facing financial burdens, the first to loose their homes are the animals. Shelters become crowded as more and more animals are sadly turned in by their families that can no longer care for them. Animals once in loving homes are confused and depressed now residing in shelters. Sumter Disaster Animal Response Team has been transporting animals from overcrowded shelters to other parts of the country where they are able to be adopted into loving homes once again. Aging animals as well as puppies and kittens are being given another chance to once again be a part of a family. Sumter Disaster Animal Response Teams tag line is: Saving Lives With Every Ride. They are our local team that works nationally and internationally with large animal organizations to re-home the homeless. You can be a part of their life saving transports by making a tax deductable donation to Sumter D.A.R.T., 720 E.

Its probably typical of a holiday weekend, but we were very busy this weekend. If you dont believe that practice and preparation is important please check out our newest fishing guide, Lamar Miller Lamar is available for daily guided fishing trips. For more information just contact Steve Lind at Tracys Point. By the way, Each week I try and include information that I think anglers may have an interest in. This week I am including information regarding various ways to report violators of fishing rules and regulations. I hope you find this information helpful and will take advantage of it If you are like most Florida anglers and boaters, you enjoy your time on the water. Its an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public, said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators. The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC.com/Wildlife Alert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When peoples information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservationminded people dont even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, dont forget to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24hours a day, seven days a week. The real beauty of the program is that violators through court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a violator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators are paying people to turn them in. Good luck and good fishin! Some things fishy Lane and Matthew Bechtel caught some nice bluegill and a few catfish right off the docks at Tracys Point. They were using live big red worms. As you can see, folks at Tracys Point were bringing in the New Year with gusto with our new manager Mo Barton (center) cheering on the group. Lamar Miller caught these with Watermelon seed artificial worms. Visiting Tracys Point from Virginia, Simon and Grace Taylor caught this nice 7 pound bass using a June bug worm. They were fishing with their Dad just in front of Colemans Landing.Critter chatter What will this new year bring for animals? Linda Graves Humane Society

Plantation Christmas was held in Ellenton Sunday, Dec 11. Carol Tomlinson, Tammy Moore and Candy Tilton (perspective member) of the Granville Beville 2234, Bushnell Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy along with Annette Harrell and Charlotte Thompson of the Anna Jackson 224, Tallahassee, decorated the Parlor of the Gamble Mansion owned by Robert Gamble. They were joined by Joyce White on Sunday and served as docents as the Mansion was toured by the public. Decorations used were from the time period of the War Between the States, 1861-1865. Scrub pines, magnolia leaves, oranges, nuts, holly was used as the decorations for the room and the Christmas tree was decorated with homemade ornaments made from scrapes of material and pew dolls made from handkerchief, popcorn strung with cranberrys and dried flowers. The Gamble Mansion is furnished by period correct furniture. Major Robert Gamble and his family came to Florida in the mid 1800s and built the plantation, which took 5 to 6 years (1845-50). He sold the plantation due to declining sugar market and debts. It sold in 1856 and was the only surviving plantation house in South Florida. The United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1925 bought and donated the Gamble Planation to the state a memorial to Judah P Benjamin, who served three Cabinet positions under Confederate President Jefferson Davis during War Between the States. He stayed in May 1865 before escaping the Federal Forces and sailing to England. In 1872, postwar owner George Patten built a wooden, vernacular Victorian style, two story house because he found the mansion in too poor condition for living. In 2002 the state acquired the property which holds the ruins of the plantations sugar mill, one of the Souths largest, and added it to the historic park complex. Gamble Plantation Historic State Park is open 365 days per year. Tours are available Thursday through Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY5, 2012, PAGE13 Local club members Candy Tilton, Carol Tomlinson, Tammy Moore attending the Plantation Christmas at Gamble Mansion in Ellenton.
