Sumter County school system has earned substantial bragging rights. The Florida Department of Education (DOE) recently released the top 10 ranked school districts in Florida and Sumter made the list, outscoring 57 of the 67 school districts in the state. Sumter is also designated as an A district for the fourth consecutive year. The ranking is based on each districts total average FCAT scores. Everyone should take great pride in the tremendous progress the students of Sumter County made in the 2011 school year, said School Supt. Rick Shirley. The districts rankings show that Sumter students are achieving at higher levels than ever before and that this school district is on track to remain one of the best in Florida, said Shirley. We couldnt accomplish this without great teachers, kids and administrators, as well as a supportive community and School Board. Sumters elementary and middle schools received school grades in the fall with Bushnell Elementary, Webster Elementary, Lake Panasoffkee Elementary, Wildwood Elementary, and South Sumter Middle recognized as A schools. More recently, high school grades were released. South Sumter High School and Wildwood Middle High School are both rated as B schools with the The Villages Charter School earning an A.

Sumter County sheriffs detectives are investigating the death of a 7-year-old Webster girl who was involved in an ATV crash that occurred in the 10000 block of C.R. 707 east of Webster last week. Sheriffs deputies were called to the scene at approximately 12:49 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17, after receiving a 911 call reporting the crash. The girl, Natasha Aponte, was a passenger on a four-wheeler operated by Joel Rivera, 30, of Webster, when the crash occurred. Rivera was operating the fourwheeler in an old drainage canal on the property and was attempting to climb an approximate 60-degree steep incline with Miss Aponte seated on the rear of the four-wheeler. Neither she nor Rivera were wearing helmets, and as they crested the top of the incline, the fourwheeler momentarily lost power and began to roll backwards before rolling over with her still on the fourwheeler. She was transported to South Lake Hospital where she was pronounced deceased. Rivera was arrested by sheriffs detectives after being interviewed at the sheriffs office. He is charged with child neglect and aggravated manslaughter of a child. Blood and urine samples are being analyzed to determine if alcohol or drugs played a part in the crash; the results of those tests are pending, according to the sheriffs office report. Rivera is being held without bond. ATV crashes are tragic and often fatal, and they are not designed to be operated by inexperienced operators; nor are they designed for passengers especially small children. Sheriff Bill Farmer states owners and operators of these four-wheelers must exercise due care, and not allow small children to either operate or ride without a helmet. Child safety is of the utmost importance. T uesday, Jan. 17Kory Blake Gregory, 19, Oxford, was arrested for domestic battery. Bond set at $3,500. William F.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 26, 2012 Trying to solve Royal problem T he County Commission will next week begin the process of trying to assist Royal organizers of the annual Royal Homecoming Festival with finding a way to continue with the event and alleviate some of the problems that have plagued it in recent years. Last year, commissioners were critical of the festival because of the problems it created with traffic issues and clean up after the event was over. Commissioners said it was too costly to provide necessary clean up at the festival site in Royal Park. Board members also said that they received numerous complaints about traffic created by people attending the event. This year, organizers are starting early, preparing for the festival in June. Headed by the Young Performing Artist (YPAs), led by Beverly Steele, the group has taken on the responsibility of organizing the event. Steele sought assistance from the County Commission recently to help address the issues and ensure that the festival could continue. Our hope is that the County Commission can find a workable solution so this important event can continue. Rich in historical heritage, the Royal Homecoming Festival is a worthy event that not only draws the community closer but supports improvements for youngsters and the community. Like any event, while the Royal festival is valuable to the community, it is not without its problems. We believe that commissioners will be able to resolve the issues and the event will continue to prosper and flourish.

This is an exciting time in Sumter County as we get ready for the crowning of the new 2012 Little Miss, Princess and Jr. Miss Sumter County.

They wait all year long for the opportunity to walk across a stage in their beautiful dresses and shine for their family, friends and a room full of people who came to see all of them. There is only one who will wear a crown, but they are all winners. It takes a lot of courage to get up on a stage in front of all those people and perform and all of these girls do it with a smile and a wave to the crowd. Bring your family and friends and join us as we celebrate all of these young ladies on Feb. 4, 6 p.m., at Sumter County Fairgrounds. Admission fee is $5 per adult, $2 Children 4 and up, all under the age of 4 are free. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. We hope to see the room packed with well-wishers for these girls.

You will have fun and be able to wear a beautiful dress and wow your family and friends with how beautiful you are! There are also substantial scholarship monies for the Miss Sumter County and her court. Hope to see all of you there! Sumter County Pageant Committee Why not run government like a business? The hour is rapidly approaching when Americas dependence on borrowed money to operate basic government services will force Congress and the White House to engage in heated rhetoric over whether to raise the debt limit or reduce spending. If recent history is any indication, our debt ceiling will be raised amid promises to cut spending sometime in the future. Perhaps it is finally time for Congress to stop trying to placate the American people and to seriously consider running our government in businesslike manner. Every successful business, whether large or small, has a mission statement setting forth the very reason for its existence. The United States has one as well; our Constitution. Congress and the Executive branch must use it as their governing principle. Every successful business, whether large or small, requires its employees to be accountable for their actions. Failure to perform as required must have consequences in government as it does in the private sector. If it is acceptable for baseball managers and football coaches to be terminated for poor performance, why not key government administrators? Only in the federal government would those responsible for the five hundred million Solyndra scandal still be collecting a taxpayer funded paycheck. Every successful business whether large or small, must regularly review the goods or services it provides and eliminate or discontinue those that do not work or are no longer relevant. We all remember buying gas at a service station, morning deliveries by the milkman, and Polaroid cameras; great ideas in their time and missed for awhile but no longer practical. Yet, programs once established by the federal government take on a life of their own, often without regard for their continued relevance. What if before Congress or the Executive branch instituted a new program they had to eliminate one of equal or greater expense to the taxpayers? We must prioritize; we cannot continue to borrow forty one cents of every dollar we spend. Our nation achieved greatness based on the principles of individual freedom and the free enterprise system, not on the dependency of a dominant central government. We must remain the land of opportunity, not the land of big government. Richard L.

The DOE numerical ranking is one of the first such rankings in the country. The district-by-district ranking is the first phase of an initiative that will soon include a list of all of the schools in the state ranked by number within the three main school groupings: elementary, middle and high school. The goal is to make it easier for parents to assess school district performance. Florida is considered a national leader when it comes to measuring the success of our schools, said Florida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson. The Florida Department of Education developed the first-ever school grading program in 1999, and since then we have provided our model to other states that wish to replicate our exceptional accountability system. Robinson added that using education performance data is essential for measuring student progress and school effectiveness to ensure that Floridas educational system continues to move in the right direction. Ranking districts and schools based on data-driven results demonstrates Floridas focus on ensuring students receive a high quality education and provides another helpful tool for parents, educators and taxpayers, he said. Sumter County deserves congratulations for this accomplishment, said Robinson. Ranking in the top ten takes commitment, hard work and collaboration not only from those within the educational setting; it takes the support of the entire community. In addition to the overall district rating, the Sumter school district is ranked in the top ten on the 2011 FCAT reading, math and science assessments. Sumter was first in the state for 10th-grade writing, second in the state for 4th-grade writing and third in the state for 8th-grade writing. Sumter placed fifth in the state for both 3rd-grade math and fifthgrade reading. Both 5thgrade math and science ranked sixth in the state. Sumter ranked seventh for 11th-grade science. The school district also took 10th-place rankings for 4th, 10thand 3rd-grade reading. Sumter is at or above the state average for the percent of students proficient in reading, math and science in all grade levels. The district rankings can be found at http://www.fldoe.org/Schoo lDistrictRanking/.

SECO wins two awards for community service Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has won two distinct international Communitas Awards for the co-ops lead role in the Camp Boggy Creek Project in Lake County and for SECOs overall Commitment to Community. SECO won in the Company Sponsored Volunteer Project category and won in the most prestigious category in the competition, which was the Leadership in Community Service & Corporate Social Responsibility category. Camp Boggy Creek is an internationally known camp for very seriously ill children. The Camp is the only multi-disease therapeutic camp program in Florida that provides medically supervised, recreational activities for children with chronic or life threatening illnesses. SECO won the Company Sponsored Volunteer Project category because of the Co-ops leading role in making Camp Boggy Creeks 14 family cabins more energy efficient through duct repair, caulking, weather stripping, etc. In addition, a brand new 32 panel solar system was installed to heat the Camps pool. The pool is used for recreation and for therapy and was being heated by expensive propane. The Leadership in Community Service & Corporate Social Responsibility award was presented to SECO for its overall commitment to the communities it serves, the co-ops employee support for the many humanitarian needs in our various counties, SECOs support and participation in our local chambers and economic development organizations, the SECO Angel Fund activities, and much, much more. The judges were obviously very impressed with the depth and consistency of SECOs efforts on behalf of the people living in its service territory. Communitas is Latin for people coming together for the good of the community. These awards are sponsored by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals and recognize exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals that are unselfishly giving of themselves and their resources and those that are changing how they do business to benefit their communities. 000AD5N Titan Family Home Center of Homosassa 1485 S.

P AGE 8S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 26, 2012 Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. By Beverly Steele After the annual MLK March around the Community of Royal, the Royal Library Association was pumped and began the preparations for, what turned out to be, one of the largest MLK Day banquets within this historic community. Monday, Jan. 16, is the day that this entire country recognizes as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. There were many outstanding activities, in Sumter County, to celebrate Dr. Kings legacy. The Royal Annual Dr. MLK Day Banquet at the Royal Community Center proved to be one of those events with a lasting impression. The talk, of how Royal recognized the service of the Sumter district school bus drivers who safely and caringly drove Royals children to school, has spread over Sumter County. The bus drivers honored were Ida Anderson, Gloria Brooks, Joanne Brooks, John L. Brooks, Lee Taft Brooks, Lorenza Brooks, Annette Brown, Chester Brown, Ivory Green, Arvis Harrison, Annette Jackson, Lillie Jackson, Joeanne Johnson, Wynona Johnson, Earline Kirkland, Diane Nolan, Gracie Owens, Wallace Richardson, Ms. L. Split, Susie Steele, Amy Turks, Barbara Williams, Dorthine Williams and Nathaniel Williams. Eric Suber, Sumter District Bus Depot manager, presented the service awards and Rodney Rocker, Rocker-Cusack Mortuary, Inc. presented the posthumous service awards. The program began with Alfreda Sanchez, mistress of ceremony, leading the audience in singing We Shall Overcome, followed by prayer and blessing of the food. The prayer was led by Minister Eddie Erving of the Bible Church of God. Scripture was read by elder Jimmie Williams of Faith Outreach Ministry #2. The program continued with Minister Dwayne Barron reciting Dr. Kings words and a praise dance by Vanity Angel Kelly, 8; Maya Angelous Phenomenal Woman poem read by Evangelist Minnie Keiler; inspirational words by book author Wounder Kelly. A special presentation of Weve Come a Long Way & Soon, Well Be Done With The Troubles of This World, was given by Leenardia Worthen a compilation solo by Maggie Harrison. Special remarks were given by Beverly Steele and Brenda Solomon. The program continued with an enthusiastic audience participation song, as they raised their voices to sing Lift Every Voice and Sing. And finally, guests were encouraged to continue to serve, to lend a helping hand as they went their separate ways. For more information, visit www.CommunityOfRoyal.org. Royal, one of Floridas oldest African American communities was the site of a series of annual events planned to pay tribute to the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in early January. The community leaders cite Kings unselfish efforts to gain liberty, justice and freedom for all American citizens in their effort to honor him. On Friday Jan. 13, coordinators opened the evening with their Seniors With The Look event. Royal seniors were the featured guests of the evening, with support from family and friends as they stepped to music showcasing their fabulous attire. Royal senior participants were Lorenza Brooks, Nathaniel Williams, Annie Johnson, Minnie Keiler, Ivo Murray, Sarah Parker, Alice Scott, Dorthine Williams and Juanita Williams. Mr. Williams was crowned the Senior With The Look male and Mrs. Murray was crowned the Senior With The Look female. This event was a great way to feature local seniors who withstood the test and trails of the civil rights movement. They were in the midst of the movement; they were the movement. said Cliff Hughes, one of the event coordinators. For more information, visit www.CommunityOfRoyal.org.Ebenezer A.M.E. Church, Royal celebrates! How appropriate for Reverend Robert Tom Dixon, pastor of the Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church, and his congregation to celebrate Dr. Kings legacy with a visit by Reverend Hartford Lee, Presiding Elder North Orlando District. The gathering was all part of the Annual Steward Day program and recognition of 101-year-old Reverend Jerome Andrews, retired Ebenezer pastor. The celebration was held on Sunday, Jan. 15 and began in the morning with Rev. Lee leading the second quarterly meeting and greeting Rev. Andrews at 9:30 a.m. The business concluded with the Steward Board taking charge of the 11 a.m. worship service. During that service, board members Levi Solomon-Lead, Albert Ancrum, Allean Forde, Angelina James, Catherine Latimer, Juneast Mallard, Beverly Steele and Hodges Towns spoke on the word steward. The doctrine notes that to be qualified as a steward, one must be of solid piety (dutiful), know and love the Word of God, know the AME church doctrine including the doctrine and discipline of the AME Church and he or she must be fruitful and of good natural or acquired ability to transact the spiritual and temporal business of the church. The service also included a musical presentation by the Royal Male Chorus. They set the uplifting tone for the service and the stewards followed suit. Rev. Robert Tom Dixon thanked everyone during his warm closing remarks. For more information, 352-748-4484 or 390 East Highway 462, Wildwood (Royal), FL 34785 or ebenezerame@netzero.co m.

Deb and her husband Steve are spending their winter at Turtleback RV Resort. Fishing A night filled with the deserving recognition of those who give of themselves in the service of others occurred the evening of Dec. 14, 2011, as the members of Sumter County Fire and EMS and their families attended the organizations Annual Awards Ceremony and Celebration. The program was designed to recognize accomplishments, show appreciation, and celebrate the employees for their commitment. WVLG radio personality, Rob Newton, served as the Master of Ceremonies and set the tone for the night of appreciation and recognition. The evening began with the departments honor guard presenting the colors, an invocation by Reverend Lawrence Recla, and the opening remarks by the Chief. The evening recognitions included those who had recently completed benchmark years of service with the organization, obtained degrees of high learning, recent retirements and promotions. Also awarded were the Medal of Valor, Fire Chiefs Award, EMT, Firefighter, and Paramedic of the year, for their exceptional service to the organization and citizens of Sumter County. The highlight of the evening for many came during the Distinguished Service Unit Citation awards, where specific crews were recognized for lifesaving performance during specific incidents. It was during this time that one of the survivors, who was resuscitated after suffering a cardiac arrest, gave his emotional thanks to the crews who allowed him the ability to spend time with his grandchildren. There was hardly a dry eye in the room during the emotional presentation as the members who saved him were able to again meet their patient, during significantly better circumstances. Contributions from several local businesses assisted in allowing the event to accomplish its purpose of showing appreciation to those who are often taken for granted in our time of need. Promotions, Awards and Recognition Members of Sumter County Fire and EMS recognized for their commitment.

P AGE 10SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 26, 2012 Merritt hits 36 as South Sumter wins 53-45 Kirsti Merritt was feeling a little sad. Thursday night, Jan. 19, was Senior Night and the South Sumter High senior point guard realized she may not have another basketball home game. So, Merritt went out and made it a night to be remembered. She scored 36 points, made four steals, grabbed five rebounds and blocked a shot leading her Raiders to a 53-45 district victory over Mount Dora High at the Raiders gym. The victory made South Sumter 11-12 overall and the victory gave the Raiders a 6-2 record in Class 4A-District 6. The Raiders are tied for first place with Mount Dora and Trinity Catholic in the district. The district tournament will be played Jan. 31 through Feb. 4 at Mount Dora. Mount Dora led 26-20 at halftime. In the third period, Merritt scored 13 points as the Raiders outscored the visitors 16-7. The home team led 36-33 after three periods. Merritt scored 13 points in the fourth quarter as the Raiders outpointed Mount Dora 17-12. Mount Dora tried to give themselves a chance at a comeback and kept fouling Merritt. That strategy backfired as Merritt hit nine of 13 free throws to sew up the victory. She hit 12 of 17 at the charity stripe for the game. Merritt, who will play softball on scholarship at the University of Florida next year, hit five threepoint goals in providing most of the Raiders offense. She didnt realize she had scored 36 points, a personal best. Its a surprise, she said. I knew it was my last regular season game at home. It was emotional. Merritts coach was happy that her senior point guard came up big. She is one of our three seniors (Nina Flores and Alayna Sumner are the others) and it was the first time our seniors were jelling, said South Sumter coach Kimberly Borum. It was our Senior Night and that brought a tear or two to my eyes but I sucked it back in. We are in a three-way tie for first. There will be a draw for two teams. It will come down to a coin toss. I thought our team did great. We had some stops defensively. There were times in the first half when we werent hitting our shots. We had great shot selection but we werent knocking them down. We practiced to get the box outs. We didnt do it every time. The times we did it were really big. We had two freshmen, Kylie Jessmer and Kyra Eastburn. Good things from them in the next years. We had a great team effort.

We held two tournaments here over the weekend; on Saturday we hosted South Lake Bass Anglers and on Sunday we hosted Bassin Buddies out of Orlando. Results from those tournaments will be listed in next weeks report. Crappie fishing has been good but to my knowledge they have not bedded just yet. Blue Gill is always good here. Of course if youre into some bow fishing both tilapia and gar are a good bet. The lead guitar player for Dr. Hook and the Medicine show, Kenny Cramer, got a nice fish. He was fishing with John Chauncey who, in his own right, has been nailing some nice fish I just cant seem to get him to hold still long enough for a few photos later. In any event, weve got plenty of live bait including some large domestic shiners as well as wild shiners and a ton of live minnows as well as all of your tackle needs so come see us. Good luck and good fishin! Steve Some things fishy in Lake Panasoffkee Cal and Bob Livingston with a couple of nice gar taken last week.

Sumter Countys Lake Panasoffkee was named this week as one of Floridas Top 10 Family Fishing Destinations by World Fishing Network. WFN said of Lake Panasoffkee: Despite being just 55 miles northwest of Orlando, Lake Panasoffkee feels like youre away from it all. Surrounded by parks and campgrounds, this lake is known for its bass fishing and big longnose gar. Lake Panasoffkee Park offers a whole line of fun outdoor activities in addition to fishing and camping, including biking, horseback riding, hiking, bird watching, and more. Its exciting to see Lake Panasoffkee getting its proper recognition as a great family fishing destination, said Sumter County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Andrew Cripps. The lake is already a popular destination for devoted anglers, but it doesnt get the attention it deserves for its unspoiled, family-friendly setting, and the great fish camps, campgrounds, RV parks and amenities around it. We hope this recognition will be just the start of the re-discovery of Lake Panasoffkee as a family outdoor destination. World Fishing Network, or WFN, is the only 24/7 television network dedicated to all segments of fishing with programming that covers instruction, tips, tournaments, travel, food, boating, outdoor lifestyle and more. Other Florida family fishing destinations included on the list were Walt Disney World, Destin, Long Key State Park, Key West, Lake Kissimmee State Park, Lake Okeechobee, Sarasota, St. Augustine and Fort Lauderdale. The announcement on WFNs website (www.worldfishingnetwork.com) includes a video tour of Lake Panasoffkee led by Jim Veal Jr. of Pana Vista Lodge. The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce is the primary business organization in Sumter County, Florida, representing more than 440 business members. Its mission is to serve as the gateway to our county for visitors, residents and businesses alike, helping grow and thrive through increased visibility, advocacy, networking and information.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 26, 2012, P AGE 13 Each year, Florida economy improves for a couple of days in winter all thanks to the legacy of the late Vince and Lillian Guettler. Their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren gather for a family reunion moving into one designated area as they travel from locales around the state, nation and even Canada. This year, the mass of family members booked about 30 rooms at the Bushnell Microtel to take part in the reunion it was held at Gerald Guttlers barn on his St. Catherine ranch. This years crowd was estimated at about 125 family members, according to Dolores Tootsie Fortnash. Shes one of the Guettler children and a co-organizer of the event. Her parents originally had 13 children two have passed away in recent years. This years reunion began on Friday and lasted through Sunday it included a Friday night bonfire, a Saturday morning mass, an auction, barbecue, Italian subs and games. The family didnt even have to head for town to mass a priest from St. Lawrence Catholic Church came to them and performed the service in a field next to the barn. After the service, it was lunchtime and everyone had a chance make their bid at the familys silent auction. The collection of goods ranged from hand paintings and framed family photos to fresh baked breads, baskets of wine and wood work pieces. Everyone brings something theyve made something that will sell, she said. She said some are artistic and some are crafters. One of the Guettler grandsons is a producer for an Orlando television station. That raises money for the food, she said of the auction, noting they raise enough to feed everyone for the weekend. On Friday night, they ate Italian sausage hoagies ordering the sausage from Guettlers neighbor and Sumter sausage maker John Carbone. On Saturday night it was catered barbecue. The reunion used to be held in Ft. Pierce every year, but theyve added the Sumter location as a choice and theyve held it here twice. The first Guettler sibling born was Betty Langel born in 1927. She recently passed away and the family held a service for her and her husband on Friday. Their brother Paul was third to the oldest he died in 1990 at age 60. Last weekend, Gerald, Pat, Jeanie, Dorothy, Edward, Dolores, Bernie, twins Margaret and Teresa, Kathleen and Karl were all on hand for the reunion. Karl is the youngest of the 13 siblings, born in 1945, he will be 66, Fortnash said. The oldest male sibling is Gerald, now 82. Its his barn where the group gathered this year and he did most of the work, she said. Joshua Langel/Courtesy to the TimesAn estimated 125 descendants of Vince and Lillian Guettler were at Gerard Guettlers St. Catherine ranch last weekend for a fam ily reunion.

I t was a freezing January morning, 28 degrees to be exact. People and their dogs were bundled up, with the dogs dressed warmly in doggie sweaters and jackets. But the frigid weather was not going to deter the Jack Russell Terrier Trials in Ocala. The spitfire little Jacks were rearing to go, and their loyal owners were more than willing to accommodate their dogs. Things heated up quickly when the races started at 8:30 am. The intense little Jacks were like firecrackers, racing down the track after the lure. Their excitement and intense drive to catch the lure is a thrilling and fun event for this highly active breed as well as for their humans. The course is a straight track, a minimum 150 feet long to 225 feet long. All Jacks are muzzled for their own safety and the handlers safety. The races started out as flat racing, and later hurdles were added. Let me tell you, those little Jacks can fly over those hurdles! These cool little dogs are naturally hot wired for action! I brought Hanna Banana, my JRT mix, and Moon Pie, my little shortie rough coat JRT to witness their first event. Even on the sidelines, they became wild with excitement. Whether racing or not, just the sound of the cable pulling the lure energized the dogs, creating excited barking and jumping. Jacks of all ages, sizes, and in varying coats and markings were in Ocala for an active day of racing, go to ground, brush hunting, and agility. The JRT people were very friendly, helpful and supportive. Good sportsmanship was first and foremost, along with everyone including the dogs out having a great time. Inexperienced at racing, Hanna Banana and Moon Pie got to try out their skill at lure chasing in a long round race track. First try, Moon Pie took off after that lure, her short little legs running top speed, with everyone cheering her on. Hanna Banana was too focused on the cable to even notice the lure, but the second try, Hanna Banana was off running, chasing the lure too. Jack Russell Terriers are bred for hunting. They are bold, assertive, intelligent, and have boundless energy. They are not a dog for everyone, but for those who love and understand the feisty breed, and are able to give the dog the outdoor activities and exercise it requires, they are a joy to be with.

Sumter County school system has earned substantial bragging rights. The Florida Department of Education (DOE) recently released the top 10 ranked school districts in Florida and Sumter made the list, outscoring 57 of the 67 school districts in the state. Sumter is also designated as an A district for the fourth consecutive year. The ranking is based on each districts total average FCAT scores. Everyone should take great pride in the tremendous progress the students of Sumter County made in the 2011 school year, said School Supt. Rick Shirley. The districts rankings show that Sumter students are achieving at higher levels than ever before and that this school district is on track to remain one of the best in Florida, said Shirley. We couldnt accomplish this without great teachers, kids and administrators, as well as a supportive community and School Board. Sumters elementary and middle schools received school grades in the fall with Bushnell Elementary, Webster Elementary, Lake Panasoffkee Elementary, Wildwood Elementary, and South Sumter Middle recognized as A schools. More recently, high school grades were released. South Sumter High School and Wildwood Middle High School are both rated as B schools with the The Villages Charter School earning an A.

Sumter County sheriffs detectives are investigating the death of a 7-year-old Webster girl who was involved in an ATV crash that occurred in the 10000 block of C.R. 707 east of Webster last week. Sheriffs deputies were called to the scene at approximately 12:49 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 17, after receiving a 911 call reporting the crash. The girl, Natasha Aponte, was a passenger on a four-wheeler operated by Joel Rivera, 30, of Webster, when the crash occurred. Rivera was operating the fourwheeler in an old drainage canal on the property and was attempting to climb an approximate 60-degree steep incline with Miss Aponte seated on the rear of the four-wheeler. Neither she nor Rivera were wearing helmets, and as they crested the top of the incline, the fourwheeler momentarily lost power and began to roll backwards before rolling over with her still on the fourwheeler. She was transported to South Lake Hospital where she was pronounced deceased. Rivera was arrested by sheriffs detectives after being interviewed at the sheriffs office. He is charged with child neglect and aggravated manslaughter of a child. Blood and urine samples are being analyzed to determine if alcohol or drugs played a part in the crash; the results of those tests are pending, according to the sheriffs office report. Rivera is being held without bond. ATV crashes are tragic and often fatal, and they are not designed to be operated by inexperienced operators; nor are they designed for passengers especially small children. Sheriff Bill Farmer states owners and operators of these four-wheelers must exercise due care, and not allow small children to either operate or ride without a helmet. Child safety is of the utmost importance. Tuesday, Jan. 17Kory Blake Gregory, 19, Oxford, was arrested for domestic battery. Bond set at $3,500. William F.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY26, 2012 Trying to solve Royal problem The County Commission will next week begin the process of trying to assist Royal organizers of the annual Royal Homecoming Festival with finding a way to continue with the event and alleviate some of the problems that have plagued it in recent years. Last year, commissioners were critical of the festival because of the problems it created with traffic issues and clean up after the event was over. Commissioners said it was too costly to provide necessary clean up at the festival site in Royal Park. Board members also said that they received numerous complaints about traffic created by people attending the event. This year, organizers are starting early, preparing for the festival in June. Headed by the Young Performing Artist (YPAs), led by Beverly Steele, the group has taken on the responsibility of organizing the event. Steele sought assistance from the County Commission recently to help address the issues and ensure that the festival could continue. Our hope is that the County Commission can find a workable solution so this important event can continue. Rich in historical heritage, the Royal Homecoming Festival is a worthy event that not only draws the community closer but supports improvements for youngsters and the community. Like any event, while the Royal festival is valuable to the community, it is not without its problems. We believe that commissioners will be able to resolve the issues and the event will continue to prosper and flourish.

There are also substantial scholarship monies for the Miss Sumter County and her court. Hope to see all of you there! Sumter County Pageant CommitteeWhy not run government like a business?The hour is rapidly approaching when Americas dependence on borrowed money to operate basic government services will force Congress and the White House to engage in heated rhetoric over whether to raise the debt limit or reduce spending. If recent history is any indication, our debt ceiling will be raised amid promises to cut spending sometime in the future. Perhaps it is finally time for Congress to stop trying to placate the American people and to seriously consider running our government in businesslike manner. Every successful business, whether large or small, has a mission statement setting forth the very reason for its existence. The United States has one as well; our Constitution. Congress and the Executive branch must use it as their governing principle. Every successful business, whether large or small, requires its employees to be accountable for their actions. Failure to perform as required must have consequences in government as it does in the private sector. If it is acceptable for baseball managers and football coaches to be terminated for poor performance, why not key government administrators? Only in the federal government would those responsible for the five hundred million Solyndra scandal still be collecting a taxpayer funded paycheck. Every successful business whether large or small, must regularly review the goods or services it provides and eliminate or discontinue those that do not work or are no longer relevant. We all remember buying gas at a service station, morning deliveries by the milkman, and Polaroid cameras; great ideas in their time and missed for awhile but no longer practical. Yet, programs once established by the federal government take on a life of their own, often without regard for their continued relevance. What if before Congress or the Executive branch instituted a new program they had to eliminate one of equal or greater expense to the taxpayers? We must prioritize; we cannot continue to borrow forty one cents of every dollar we spend. Our nation achieved greatness based on the principles of individual freedom and the free enterprise system, not on the dependency of a dominant central government. We must remain the land of opportunity, not the land of big government. Richard L.

The DOE numerical ranking is one of the first such rankings in the country. The district-by-district ranking is the first phase of an initiative that will soon include a list of all of the schools in the state ranked by number within the three main school groupings: elementary, middle and high school. The goal is to make it easier for parents to assess school district performance. Florida is considered a national leader when it comes to measuring the success of our schools, said Florida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson. The Florida Department of Education developed the first-ever school grading program in 1999, and since then we have provided our model to other states that wish to replicate our exceptional accountability system. Robinson added that using education performance data is essential for measuring student progress and school effectiveness to ensure that Floridas educational system continues to move in the right direction. Ranking districts and schools based on data-driven results demonstrates Floridas focus on ensuring students receive a high quality education and provides another helpful tool for parents, educators and taxpayers, he said. Sumter County deserves congratulations for this accomplishment, said Robinson. Ranking in the top ten takes commitment, hard work and collaboration not only from those within the educational setting; it takes the support of the entire community. In addition to the overall district rating, the Sumter school district is ranked in the top ten on the 2011 FCAT reading, math and science assessments. Sumter was first in the state for 10th-grade writing, second in the state for 4th-grade writing and third in the state for 8th-grade writing. Sumter placed fifth in the state for both 3rd-grade math and fifthgrade reading. Both 5thgrade math and science ranked sixth in the state. Sumter ranked seventh for 11th-grade science. The school district also took 10th-place rankings for 4th, 10thand 3rd-grade reading. Sumter is at or above the state average for the percent of students proficient in reading, math and science in all grade levels. The district rankings can be found at http://www.fldoe.org/Schoo lDistrictRanking/.

SECO wins two awards for community service Sumter Electric Cooperative (SECO) has won two distinct international Communitas Awards for the co-ops lead role in the Camp Boggy Creek Project in Lake County and for SECOs overall Commitment to Community. SECO won in the Company Sponsored Volunteer Project category and won in the most prestigious category in the competition, which was the Leadership in Community Service & Corporate Social Responsibility category. Camp Boggy Creek is an internationally known camp for very seriously ill children. The Camp is the only multi-disease therapeutic camp program in Florida that provides medically supervised, recreational activities for children with chronic or life threatening illnesses. SECO won the Company Sponsored Volunteer Project category because of the Co-ops leading role in making Camp Boggy Creeks 14 family cabins more energy efficient through duct repair, caulking, weather stripping, etc. In addition, a brand new 32 panel solar system was installed to heat the Camps pool. The pool is used for recreation and for therapy and was being heated by expensive propane. The Leadership in Community Service & Corporate Social Responsibility award was presented to SECO for its overall commitment to the communities it serves, the co-ops employee support for the many humanitarian needs in our various counties, SECOs support and participation in our local chambers and economic development organizations, the SECO Angel Fund activities, and much, much more. The judges were obviously very impressed with the depth and consistency of SECOs efforts on behalf of the people living in its service territory.

PAGE8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY26, 2012 Honoring Martin Luther King Jr. By Beverly Steele After the annual MLK March around the Community of Royal, the Royal Library Association was pumped and began the preparations for, what turned out to be, one of the largest MLK Day banquets within this historic community. Monday, Jan. 16, is the day that this entire country recognizes as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. There were many outstanding activities, in Sumter County, to celebrate Dr. Kings legacy. The Royal Annual Dr. MLK Day Banquet at the Royal Community Center proved to be one of those events with a lasting impression. The talk, of how Royal recognized the service of the Sumter district school bus drivers who safely and caringly drove Royals children to school, has spread over Sumter County. The bus drivers honored were Ida Anderson, Gloria Brooks, Joanne Brooks, John L. Brooks, Lee Taft Brooks, Lorenza Brooks, Annette Brown, Chester Brown, Ivory Green, Arvis Harrison, Annette Jackson, Lillie Jackson, Joeanne Johnson, Wynona Johnson, Earline Kirkland, Diane Nolan, Gracie Owens, Wallace Richardson, Ms. L. Split, Susie Steele, Amy Turks, Barbara Williams, Dorthine Williams and Nathaniel Williams. Eric Suber, Sumter District Bus Depot manager, presented the service awards and Rodney Rocker, Rocker-Cusack Mortuary, Inc. presented the posthumous service awards. The program began with Alfreda Sanchez, mistress of ceremony, leading the audience in singing We Shall Overcome, followed by prayer and blessing of the food. The prayer was led by Minister Eddie Erving of the Bible Church of God. Scripture was read by elder Jimmie Williams of Faith Outreach Ministry #2. The program continued with Minister Dwayne Barron reciting Dr. Kings words and a praise dance by Vanity Angel Kelly, 8; Maya Angelous Phenomenal Woman poem read by Evangelist Minnie Keiler; inspirational words by book author Wounder Kelly. A special presentation of Weve Come a Long Way & Soon, Well Be Done With The Troubles of This World, was given by Leenardia Worthen a compilation solo by Maggie Harrison. Special remarks were given by Beverly Steele and Brenda Solomon. The program continued with an enthusiastic audience participation song, as they raised their voices to sing Lift Every Voice and Sing. And finally, guests were encouraged to continue to serve, to lend a helping hand as they went their separate ways.For more information, visit www.CommunityOfRoyal.org. Royal, one of Floridas oldest African American communities was the site of a series of annual events planned to pay tribute to the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in early January. The community leaders cite Kings unselfish efforts to gain liberty, justice and freedom for all American citizens in their effort to honor him. On Friday Jan. 13, coordinators opened the evening with their Seniors With The Look event. Royal seniors were the featured guests of the evening, with support from family and friends as they stepped to music showcasing their fabulous attire. Royal senior participants were Lorenza Brooks, Nathaniel Williams, Annie Johnson, Minnie Keiler, Ivo Murray, Sarah Parker, Alice Scott, Dorthine Williams and Juanita Williams. Mr. Williams was crowned the Senior With The Look male and Mrs. Murray was crowned the Senior With The Look female. This event was a great way to feature local seniors who withstood the test and trails of the civil rights movement. They were in the midst of the movement; they were the movement. said Cliff Hughes, one of the event coordinators.For more information, visit www.CommunityOfRoyal.org.Ebenezer A.M.E. Church, Royal celebrates! How appropriate for Reverend Robert Tom Dixon, pastor of the Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal Church, and his congregation to celebrate Dr. Kings legacy with a visit by Reverend Hartford Lee, Presiding Elder North Orlando District. The gathering was all part of the Annual Steward Day program and recognition of 101-year-old Reverend Jerome Andrews, retired Ebenezer pastor. The celebration was held on Sunday, Jan. 15 and began in the morning with Rev. Lee leading the second quarterly meeting and greeting Rev. Andrews at 9:30 a.m. The business concluded with the Steward Board taking charge of the 11 a.m. worship service. During that service, board members Levi Solomon-Lead, Albert Ancrum, Allean Forde, Angelina James, Catherine Latimer, Juneast Mallard, Beverly Steele and Hodges Towns spoke on the word steward. The doctrine notes that to be qualified as a steward, one must be of solid piety (dutiful), know and love the Word of God, know the AME church doctrine including the doctrine and discipline of the AME Church and he or she must be fruitful and of good natural or acquired ability to transact the spiritual and temporal business of the church. The service also included a musical presentation by the Royal Male Chorus. They set the uplifting tone for the service and the stewards followed suit. Rev.

Deb and her husband Steve are spending their winter at Turtleback RV Resort. Fishing Anight filled with the deserving recognition of those who give of themselves in the service of others occurred the evening of Dec. 14, 2011, as the members of Sumter County Fire and EMS and their families attended the organizations Annual Awards Ceremony and Celebration. The program was designed to recognize accomplishments, show appreciation, and celebrate the employees for their commitment. WVLG radio personality, Rob Newton, served as the Master of Ceremonies and set the tone for the night of appreciation and recognition. The evening began with the departments honor guard presenting the colors, an invocation by Reverend Lawrence Recla, and the opening remarks by the Chief. The evening recognitions included those who had recently completed benchmark years of service with the organization, obtained degrees of high learning, recent retirements and promotions. Also awarded were the Medal of Valor, Fire Chiefs Award, EMT, Firefighter, and Paramedic of the year, for their exceptional service to the organization and citizens of Sumter County. The highlight of the evening for many came during the Distinguished Service Unit Citation awards, where specific crews were recognized for lifesaving performance during specific incidents. It was during this time that one of the survivors, who was resuscitated after suffering a cardiac arrest, gave his emotional thanks to the crews who allowed him the ability to spend time with his grandchildren. There was hardly a dry eye in the room during the emotional presentation as the members who saved him were able to again meet their patient, during significantly better circumstances. Contributions from several local businesses assisted in allowing the event to accomplish its purpose of showing appreciation to those who are often taken for granted in our time of need. Promotions, Awards and Recognition Members of Sumter County Fire and EMS recognized for their commitment.

PAGE10SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY26, 2012 Merritt hits 36 as South Sumter wins 53-45 Kirsti Merritt was feeling a little sad. Thursday night, Jan. 19, was Senior Night and the South Sumter High senior point guard realized she may not have another basketball home game. So, Merritt went out and made it a night to be remembered. She scored 36 points, made four steals, grabbed five rebounds and blocked a shot leading her Raiders to a 53-45 district victory over Mount Dora High at the Raiders gym. The victory made South Sumter 11-12 overall and the victory gave the Raiders a 6-2 record in Class 4A-District 6. The Raiders are tied for first place with Mount Dora and Trinity Catholic in the district. The district tournament will be played Jan. 31 through Feb. 4 at Mount Dora. Mount Dora led 26-20 at halftime. In the third period, Merritt scored 13 points as the Raiders outscored the visitors 16-7. The home team led 36-33 after three periods. Merritt scored 13 points in the fourth quarter as the Raiders outpointed Mount Dora 17-12. Mount Dora tried to give themselves a chance at a comeback and kept fouling Merritt. That strategy backfired as Merritt hit nine of 13 free throws to sew up the victory. She hit 12 of 17 at the charity stripe for the game. Merritt, who will play softball on scholarship at the University of Florida next year, hit five threepoint goals in providing most of the Raiders offense. She didnt realize she had scored 36 points, a personal best. Its a surprise, she said. I knew it was my last regular season game at home. It was emotional. Merritts coach was happy that her senior point guard came up big. She is one of our three seniors (Nina Flores and Alayna Sumner are the others) and it was the first time our seniors were jelling, said South Sumter coach Kimberly Borum. It was our Senior Night and that brought a tear or two to my eyes but I sucked it back in. We are in a three-way tie for first. There will be a draw for two teams. It will come down to a coin toss. I thought our team did great. We had some stops defensively. There were times in the first half when we werent hitting our shots. We had great shot selection but we werent knocking them down. We practiced to get the box outs. We didnt do it every time. The times we did it were really big. We had two freshmen, Kylie Jessmer and Kyra Eastburn. Good things from them in the next years. We had a great team effort.

We held two tournaments here over the weekend; on Saturday we hosted South Lake Bass Anglers and on Sunday we hosted Bassin Buddies out of Orlando. Results from those tournaments will be listed in next weeks report. Crappie fishing has been good but to my knowledge they have not bedded just yet. Blue Gill is always good here. Of course if youre into some bow fishing both tilapia and gar are a good bet. The lead guitar player for Dr. Hook and the Medicine show, Kenny Cramer, got a nice fish. He was fishing with John Chauncey who, in his own right, has been nailing some nice fish I just cant seem to get him to hold still long enough for a few photos later. In any event, weve got plenty of live bait including some large domestic shiners as well as wild shiners and a ton of live minnows as well as all of your tackle needs so come see us. Good luck and good fishin! Steve Some things fishy in Lake Panasoffkee Cal and Bob Livingston with a couple of nice gar taken last week. The lead guitar player for Dr. Hook and the Medicine show, Kenny Cramer, is pictured with a nice fish. Brian Nelson is shown with a nice fish caught over the week end using a watermelon seed plastic worm. Bobby Bare continues to tear up the bass with two more 10 pounders and a 7 pounder fishing with domestic shiners on the Southeast corner of the lake. Sumter Countys Lake Panasoffkee was named this week as one of Floridas Top 10 Family Fishing Destinations by World Fishing Network. WFN said of Lake Panasoffkee: Despite being just 55 miles northwest of Orlando, Lake Panasoffkee feels like youre away from it all. Surrounded by parks and campgrounds, this lake is known for its bass fishing and big longnose gar. Lake Panasoffkee Park offers a whole line of fun outdoor activities in addition to fishing and camping, including biking, horseback riding, hiking, bird watching, and more. Its exciting to see Lake Panasoffkee getting its proper recognition as a great family fishing destination, said Sumter County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Andrew Cripps. The lake is already a popular destination for devoted anglers, but it doesnt get the attention it deserves for its unspoiled, family-friendly setting, and the great fish camps, campgrounds, RV parks and amenities around it. We hope this recognition will be just the start of the re-discovery of Lake Panasoffkee as a family outdoor destination. World Fishing Network, or WFN, is the only 24/7 television network dedicated to all segments of fishing with programming that covers instruction, tips, tournaments, travel, food, boating, outdoor lifestyle and more. Other Florida family fishing destinations included on the list were Walt Disney World, Destin, Long Key State Park, Key West, Lake Kissimmee State Park, Lake Okeechobee, Sarasota, St. Augustine and Fort Lauderdale. The announcement on WFNs website (www.worldfishingnetwork.com) includes a video tour of Lake Panasoffkee led by Jim Veal Jr. of Pana Vista Lodge. The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce is the primary business organization in Sumter County, Florida, representing more than 440 business members. Its mission is to serve as the gateway to our county for visitors, residents and businesses alike, helping grow and thrive through increased visibility, advocacy, networking and information.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY26, 2012, PAGE13 Each year, Florida economy improves for a couple of days in winter all thanks to the legacy of the late Vince and Lillian Guettler. Their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren gather for a family reunion moving into one designated area as they travel from locales around the state, nation and even Canada. This year, the mass of family members booked about 30 rooms at the Bushnell Microtel to take part in the reunion it was held at Gerald Guttlers barn on his St. Catherine ranch. This years crowd was estimated at about 125 family members, according to Dolores Tootsie Fortnash. Shes one of the Guettler children and a co-organizer of the event. Her parents originally had 13 children two have passed away in recent years. This years reunion began on Friday and lasted through Sunday it included a Friday night bonfire, a Saturday morning mass, an auction, barbecue, Italian subs and games. The family didnt even have to head for town to mass a priest from St. Lawrence Catholic Church came to them and performed the service in a field next to the barn. After the service, it was lunchtime and everyone had a chance make their bid at the familys silent auction. The collection of goods ranged from hand paintings and framed family photos to fresh baked breads, baskets of wine and wood work pieces. Everyone brings something theyve made something that will sell, she said. She said some are artistic and some are crafters. One of the Guettler grandsons is a producer for an Orlando television station. That raises money for the food, she said of the auction, noting they raise enough to feed everyone for the weekend. On Friday night, they ate Italian sausage hoagies ordering the sausage from Guettlers neighbor and Sumter sausage maker John Carbone. On Saturday night it was catered barbecue. The reunion used to be held in Ft. Pierce every year, but theyve added the Sumter location as a choice and theyve held it here twice. The first Guettler sibling born was Betty Langel born in 1927. She recently passed away and the family held a service for her and her husband on Friday. Their brother Paul was third to the oldest he died in 1990 at age 60. Last weekend, Gerald, Pat, Jeanie, Dorothy, Edward, Dolores, Bernie, twins Margaret and Teresa, Kathleen and Karl were all on hand for the reunion. Karl is the youngest of the 13 siblings, born in 1945, he will be 66, Fortnash said. The oldest male sibling is Gerald, now 82. Its his barn where the group gathered this year and he did most of the work, she said. Joshua Langel/Courtesy to the TimesAn estimated 125 descendants of Vince and Lillian Guettler were at Gerard Guettlers St. Catherine ranch last weekend for a family reunion.

It was a freezing January morning, 28 degrees to be exact. People and their dogs were bundled up, with the dogs dressed warmly in doggie sweaters and jackets. But the frigid weather was not going to deter the Jack Russell Terrier Trials in Ocala. The spitfire little Jacks were rearing to go, and their loyal owners were more than willing to accommodate their dogs. Things heated up quickly when the races started at 8:30 am. The intense little Jacks were like firecrackers, racing down the track after the lure. Their excitement and intense drive to catch the lure is a thrilling and fun event for this highly active breed as well as for their humans. The course is a straight track, a minimum 150 feet long to 225 feet long. All Jacks are muzzled for their own safety and the handlers safety. The races started out as flat racing, and later hurdles were added. Let me tell you, those little Jacks can fly over those hurdles! These cool little dogs are naturally hot wired for action! I brought Hanna Banana, my JRT mix, and Moon Pie, my little shortie rough coat JRT to witness their first event. Even on the sidelines, they became wild with excitement. Whether racing or not, just the sound of the cable pulling the lure energized the dogs, creating excited barking and jumping. Jacks of all ages, sizes, and in varying coats and markings were in Ocala for an active day of racing, go to ground, brush hunting, and agility. The JRT people were very friendly, helpful and supportive. Good sportsmanship was first and foremost, along with everyone including the dogs out having a great time. Inexperienced at racing, Hanna Banana and Moon Pie got to try out their skill at lure chasing in a long round race track. First try, Moon Pie took off after that lure, her short little legs running top speed, with everyone cheering her on. Hanna Banana was too focused on the cable to even notice the lure, but the second try, Hanna Banana was off running, chasing the lure too. Jack Russell Terriers are bred for hunting. They are bold, assertive, intelligent, and have boundless energy. They are not a dog for everyone, but for those who love and understand the feisty breed, and are able to give the dog the outdoor activities and exercise it requires, they are a joy to be with.
