P AGE 2 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 2, 2012 began considering options of the aging building but decided against taking any action until additional information can be gathered. The board had asked County Commissioner Doug Gilpin to get information from the agricultural community about the situation. Gilpin said he has discussed the topic with representatives of the agricultural community and the Agricultural Alliance and I think theres no question that the building is inappropriate for marketing Sumter County agriculture. Gilpin said he did not favor spending money to renovate the existing building. I would not be in favor of putting in 700 and some thousand dollars in a 60-year-old building to accomplish having a little nicer place to show farm animals. Gilpin suggested that a committee be formed to discuss the current and future needs in the agricultural community if a new building was approved. Commission Chairman Garry Breeden suggested that the issue be tabled for about 60 days until more information is collected. The board unanimously supported Breedens recommendation. In the meantime, the board had asked the Tourist Development Council (TDC) for the majority of funding needed to renovate the Cow Palace, estimated to cost $765,000 total. The TDC voted 5 to 1 in early January to recommend the grant application in the amount of $716,581, with the understanding that if the County Commission determines that a new structure would better promote tourism in Sumter County, funding for the new structure would be paid from tourism development tax funds. your creations and earn your ribbon blue, red or white.

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 2, 2012 Bushnell deserves credit for park I ts exciting viewing the plans that the City of Bushnell has for its downtown revitalization project. Its not so exciting living without the huge oak tree in front of City Hall. The plans include some elements that are sure to bring new life to the center of Bushnell. When the new year hit, so did the construction work. Gone is the old School Board building that sat on the Florida Street side of the property. Unfortunately, so is the large stately oak tree that provided aesthetic relief to the area. But, after careful examination, city staff determined the tree was unhealthy and needed to be removed. Fortunately, the city has plans to plant new trees to enhance the site, which will be home to a new park, among other things. City leaders have always done well with enhancing city facilities. A look at Kenny Dixon Sports Complex is a good example of how grants and local efforts can result in beneficial improvements. Its expected to take about a year before the new town square park is completed. When its done, it will contain a 35foot gazebo, a decorative fountain and other amenities to enhance the downtown area. There will be bicycle paths and new sidewalks along with about 50 parking spaces. The concept is exciting even though the current site looks a bit barren. When the new park is completed, it will be another good example of how a small city can enhance its facilities and provide its residents with a comfortable and enjoyable setting. Current wildfire threat calls for community awareness The warmer and drier winter conditions we have been experiencing combined with our recent hard freezes have created increased wildfire risk conditions. Although there are currently no burn bans in effect for Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Sumter and Lake counties, if you conduct outside burning of yard waste/debris on your property, make sure you are familiar with your state, county, and municipal outdoor burning laws and follow safe burning practices. Be aware that woods arson and acts of careless public burning contribute significantly to wildfire causes within our five county regions. If you notice any suspicious activity, please call the arson alert phone number at 1-800-3425869 or your local fire agency. Now is the time to be extremely cautious in any outdoor use of fire and prepared to rapidly report an outbreak of wildfires within your neighborhood or community. If you have any questions as to outdoor burning laws or just seek advice on safe burning practices, contact the Withlacoochee Forestry Centers Wildfire Mitigation Specialist, Don Ruths at 352-754-6777 (ext. 119). Withlacoochee Forestry Center Count your blessings Once again it is time to count our many blessings and say thank you to the many people, organizations and businesses that support SCARC, Inc., throughout the past year and to contemplate the challenges of the new year. For Thanksgiving, the Bushnell Assembly of God Church treated participants, staff and guests to its annual thanksgiving feast turkey and dressing with all the trimmings all prepared and served by the willing hands of the church members and coordinated by Ms. Jackie Heminway. SCARC, Inc. participants and staff got into the Christmas spirit by providing gifts for 41 children from Sumter Santa. Jeanne Reed, who has coordinated Sumter Santa for years, presented 392 children ages four months to 18 years of age with at least four Christmas presents plus a present for each parent. Christmas gifts for residents of SCARC, Inc. group homes flowed in from many individuals, groups and organizations assuring that the residents had many surprises on Christmas morning. Gift cards were received from Frank and Andy Cooke, Terry and Johanne Hannah, siblings Peter, Amy and Andy Ashley, and Cowboys for Christ. The Sumter County sheriffs Office collected a variety of gifts for each resident. There were enough to share a gift with each person in SCARCs Supported Living program. On behalf of everyone associated with SCARD, Inc., many, many thanks to everyone who has supported each and every one of these events demonstrating the true spirit of the holiday season. Looking ahead to what 2012 holds can be daunting. SCARC, Inc. started its new fiscal year on Oct. 1, 2011 with over $100,000 less in projected revenue than it did the year before. This was due to another round of state funding reductions that first started eight years ago and most likely will continue this year as the governor and State Legislature wrestle with balancing the state budget. This is a very real threat to the progress of the last 40 to 50 years in developing community services for people with developmental disabilities. It will take every ounce of community support to keep SCARC, Inc. going strong and fulfilling our mission of providing supports and services to people with developmental disabilities. It is a mission we must accomplish, because the alternative is unthinkable.

If you believe you have a relative, friend or co-worker who deserves special recognition, submit your article to the Sumter County Times and we will consider publishing it. Earl Seay retires By Robin Marshall After 40 years of being selfemployed, Earl Seay is retiring. Seay started his own business 40 years ago and named it Seays Dragline and Bulldozer Service. After careful consideration, Earl decided to bring the dragline tracts to a halt and retire. Earl was born on Feb. 5, 1941 in Webster. He is the son of the late Leroy and Martha Seay. Earl has three sisters: Faye, Joyce and Shirley. When Earl was only three years old, his father died of pneumonia. He was in the Navy at the time. Earl grew up without a father, so he taught himself everything he knows about how to be a man. When Earl was just a boy, he would go out into the woods and he would hunt, fish and camp all by himself. Sometimes, he would take Bob Trowell with him. He would stay for four or five days at a time. Earl would get turtles, squirrels and rabbits and he would bring home 10 to 15 squirrels at a time, and his mother would cook them. One time, he cooked a garfish on a stick and he cooked a pond bird. When Earl was a child, he shined shoes on the streets of Bushnell for 10 cents until he was 14. Thats when he bought his first lawn mower, on credit at Cross Hardware in Bushnell (1955). He put $10 down and paid $5 a week. One time, Earl made $6 in one day mowing lawns and he went and bought his first BB gun. Earl went into the U.S. Army when he was 18 years old. He was 19 when he graduated from jump school with the 82nd Airborne Division. He made 58 parachute jumps. He went to Germany with the 509th Airborne Infantry Division and stayed there two years, then went to Vietnam in 196667. He was in the Army for eight years. When Earl came out of the service, he started working at rock mines in 1967. He worked at St. Catherine rock mine, Dixie Lime and Stone, Center Hill Rock (FCS) and Camp concrete rock mine in Brooksville.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 2, 2012, P AGE 5 ness for himself in 1972. He bought his first dragline. Since then, he has owned 10 draglines. He bought his first bulldozer in 1976 and since then has owned eight more. He bought a dump truck in 1984 and another one in 1990. He bought a track hoe in 1990 and another one in 2007. Earl has dug as far as 60 miles away from Sumter County. He really has a gift when it comes to digging ponds. He slopes the banks beautifully to perfection and he can give you any shape that you ask for. The final outcome was always beautiful. He has dug most of the ponds in Sumter County. If he didnt dig it, you can bet he has cleaned it out. For me, the scariest thing to watch was when he would load the dragline onto the transport. The transport is 10-feet wide and so is the dragline. So you didnt have any room to play with. But, like always, he loaded the dragline perfectly. Now Earl is getting on up there in years, I didnt say how old. He has eight acres in Wahoo that keep him busy year round. He has a garden all year long and he also grows his own sugar cane. Every November we start making our own cane syrup. Earl has been making syrup for 10 years now. Earl also collects antiques. He started 40 years ago and has even found some on his dragline jobs. The collection is so extensive that he built a 40-foot by 60-foot barn just to hold it all. He was a member of the Sumter County Cloggers for 22 years. Lets just say Earl puts his heart and soul into everything that he does. Its time for him to slow down a little and enjoy all that he does. Earl has three children Robin, Royce Jr. and Dana. He has seven grandchildren and they all call him Pa-pa. The grandchildren are: Jonathon, Justin, Austin, Taylor, Dillon, Ethan and Kelsie. He has only one granddaughter and he loves to spoil her. He also has five greatgrandchildren Caden, Kyler, Jason, Casyn and Jaelyn.

Judy started her career here at Langley in 1983 and built our HR department and made it what it is today. She has gone above and beyond her duties to assist our employees with a smile on her face even on her worst days. Judy exemplifies every quality of being a TELMC Employee of the Year! EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR The Southwest Florida Water Management District this week completed its organizational restructuring which is expected to reduce District expenses by more than $15 million a year. The reorganization increases efficiencies, reduces operational costs and meets the Districts core mission responsibilities in the areas of water supply, flood protection, water quality and natural systems. We are funded with taxpayer dollars, said Executive Director Blake Guillory. Especially during difficult economic times, we must use sound business principles to provide maximum value to the taxpayers of our District. Guillory and his executive leadership team reviewed each division and program to identify opportunities to improve processes and combine programs for efficiency and effectiveness. We were able to accomplish our goals while still retaining all of our major programs, Guillory said.ReorganizationMany of the organizational changes were driven by a workload and staff analysis conducted by an independent consulting firm. This report identified the potential to increase the Districts efficiency and reduce costs by restructuring the organization and improving its technology, processes and procedures. Part of the changes includes realigning staff based on the types of work they do to increase efficiency and reduce duplication. For example, the creation of the Operations, Maintenance & Construction Division pulled together all the field operations, maintenance and construction of the District under one Division. Under that Division, the Land Resources and Operations bureaus were combined, and a Data Collection Bureau was created to consolidate all data collection efforts. Regulation Significant savings will also result from the reorganization of the Regulation Division. Permitting review processes will be centralized in the Districts Tampa office to ensure that permit applicants throughout the District are treated consistently. Grouping staff by programs in a central location will increase efficiencies, eliminate duplication of services and reduce costs. The District will continue to maintain a local presence in the existing service offices to maintain quality customer service and to ensure that the public has convenient access to District staff. Also, online permitting services are being enhanced and improved to make it easier and more convenient to submit permit applications and access permit data. The District is committed to provide quality service in a timely, convenient and consistent manner to our customers while continuing to protect our precious water resources, Guillory said.Reduction in ForceAs part of the reorganization efforts, the District staff is being reduced by 148 people, most of whom agreed to voluntary separation plans. The remaining reductions include primarily temporary, contractual and student staff. The District will continue to employ 615 by Oct. 1, 2012. Despite the reductions in force, we still have a large, talented pool of employees remaining at the District. I am confident that we can continue to protect the water resources of our region and meet the needs of our citizens. Moving ForwardThanks to its pay-as-yougo philosophy, the District has reserves available to help balance the budget. However, projecting limited growth in our area and slightly declining property values for 2013, the District will continue to look for savings. Just as every business and family has done, we too will be taking a closer look at everything we do, and finding ways to create efficiencies or streamline our operations, said Guillory. Water district reorganization to save $15 million annually Effort increases efficiency, reduces costs and retains major water district programs Northernmost bridge on General James A. Van Fleet State Trail temporarily closed for repairs ~Northernmost bridge on General James A. Van Fleet State Trail closed for repairs~ The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Division of Recreation and Parks has temporarily closed a bridge area on the northern portion of the General James A. Van Fleet State Trail in order to make improvements to the safety and usability of the Trail. Approximately 100 feet of the trail on each end of Bridge #9, the northernmost bridge, will be closed for approximately six months while the bridge is being repaired. Public access to this section of the trail will be restricted. Trail users should use caution along the northern portion of the trail as the transporting of equipment and supplies may occasionally interfere with trail use between the Mabel Trailhead and Bridge #9. It is anticipated the trail will completely reopen no later than June 2012. 0 0 0 A 9 D X YOU HAVE YOUR OWN KEY So YOU Decide When You Workout 365/24/7 State of the Art Cardio, Strength and Free Weight Equipment Fastest Growing Fitness Franchise in the Country Ranked in the National Top 20 by Entrepreneur Magazine 1,500 Clubs Nationwide FREE Personal Fitness Orientation Upon Joining Around the Clock Security with Remote Monitoring & Surveillance National Certified Fitness Trainer Available Free Pass to Try for 7 Days ( one per person) 2 FREE Months with a PAID Year Membership $35 per month Gift Certificates Available www.AnytimeFitness.com 2221 W.

CODE: MO Sumter sports Wildwood girls weightlifters establish foundations The Wildwood High girls weightlifters may have paved the way for future success with their work this year. The five Wildcats took part in the district weightlifting meet Wednesday, Jan. 25 at Mitchell High School. The Wildcats didnt qualify anyone for the state meet Feb. 11 in Kissimmee but several of them will likely be coming back next year. They will undoubtedly want some of the action at the state meet. The coach, Mark Streit, said at least 10 lifters so they can possibly win some meets. We are trying to get more and more, said Streit. Candace Solomon (unlimited) and Keyana Solomon (199) both placed the best of the lifters at the Wildcats at the district. They were sitting probably about 10th and they probably ended up sixth or seventh, the coach said. It was all or nothing. Candace had a high of 175 pounds in the bench press and her best clean and jerk was 125 pounds. This is her second year. She is a senior. She and Keyana are both seniors, the coach said. They would have had higher scores if they had gotten involved earlier. Keyana had a best bench of 140 pounds and her best in clean was also 140 pounds. When they first come out, they dont know whats going on, the coach said. They really start learning about it. They trust themselves more. In clean and jerk, they have to look ahead through a hole. They finally understand that. The most difficult lift is the clean and jerk. They really started to get the fundamentals in their second year of lifting. Both Solomons placed first in most of their meets, according to their coach. Kala and Kali Skipper, twin sisters, really grasped the clean and jerk, the coach said. Kala was 90 pounds in the bench press and the clean and jerk. She was in the 129-pound class. Kali was 80 in the bench and 75 in the clean and jerk. Kali is in the 110-pound class. I think they ended up getting some second places. Next year, their confidence will go up. After their doing it, they are sophomores. They will do better. They placed in some meets. We just dont have enough girls to win meets. Charlene Webster, 119 and a senior was in her first year of lifting. She had never done it before but she came in and she looked like she was comfortable from the beginning, the coach said. Her personality fit in with the Solomons. Whatever we lacked in numbers, we made up in personality. We had a lot of fun. The trips were fun. They made friends wherever they went. Skippers will probably lift around other sports, softball and volleyball. They are all around good kids, the coach said. I am now the softball coach. I went ahead and committed to it. As coach, Streit can encourage his lifters to spend more time in the weight room and possibly get more lifters. And maybe, just maybe, the Skippers and possibly might be able to do some heavy lifting next year at the state meet.

Theyre also humorous, a little bit manic and a whole lot entertaining. STRINGFEVER simply dazzles! If youre looking for an evenings entertainment like youve never seen before, then meet Giles, Ralph, Graham and Neal Broadbent aka Stringfever. A British family of musicians classically trained take to their electric instruments, the worlds first genetically modified string quartet combine exceptional musical skill with a real talent for involving and engaging audiences to provide you with a night youll never forget. The worldclass musicians play familiar American favorites with their brightly colored electric string instruments, including blue, navy, red and sunburst yellow electric violins. Part of their show includes all musicians playing on one cello simultaneously. They are famous for their finale, called The History of Music in Five Minutes, which is a compilation of 40 tunes packed into a frenetic five-minute finish.

This band exudes charisma and warmth coupled with talent and humor. The visual and aural treat of three brothers and a cousin entwined around the instrument and each other to coax four harmonies from a single cello is stunning!

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 2, 2012, P AGE 13 000AETL 0 0 0 A F S 7 C ommunity cats are stray cats roaming our streets and living in wooded areas or deserted buildings. They provide a natural way to keep the rodent population down, eliminating the spread of diseases without harmful pesticides and chemicals. Cats in a community will form into groups or colonies. A colony can be a mixture of abandoned or lost pets, semi wild, and wild cats. Although some people think cats can survive on their own, they can face a life of hardship. Injury, disease, starvation, and attacks by other animals make survival extremely difficult for community cats. Many caring citizens will put out food and water for stray cats, but unless they are spayed and neutered, they will quickly multiply and their numbers become out of control. Statics show that one female cat and her mate and all their kittens can produce 470,000 offspring in just seven years! The solution: Operation Catnip, or Trap-NeuterReturn (TNR). Trap, Neuter, and Return has proven to be the most humane and successful method of reducing stray cat populations. Many cities and communities here in Florida, across America, and around the world, are implementing TNR with huge success. TNR is a 2 step approach: Step One: This involves humanely trapping the cats, spaying and neutering them, and then returning them back to their original location. This not only eliminates new litters being born, but reduces nuisance behaviors that can be attributed to mating behaviors, such as fighting and spray marking. Any tame cats and kittens still young enough to tame can be removed, socialized, and placed for adoption. Step Two: Colony caretakers, who are volunteers or caring citizens, will monitor the cats health while providing daily food, water, and shelter. Over time, the numbers of cats in the colony will naturally diminish, as the cats age and die from natural causes. TNR has long term benefits on community recourses too. It will reduce the number of cats and kittens that would end up in county animal control facilities, saving hundreds of thousands of taxpayers dollars while bringing down the rate of euthanizes. Add to that the benefit of continued natural rodent control, and you have a win-win situation. TNR is endorsed and recommended by the ASPCA, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and every other large and small humane organization. It is a program that every community should actively pursue.

Ben Hewitt spoke about the need for both large and small forms of agriculture and about the number of jobs purchasing food directly from the farm can create, according to Sumter County Extension Agent Susan Kelly. Kelly said Hewitt used his data to explain the number of jobs created when the public obtains just five percent of their food supply from local farms. The outdoor exhibits at the event included everything from a dragline service and tractors to a collection of antique farm implements and a carriage. Live llamas, cows, sheep and horses were also part of the experience. The trader show was held Saturday, Jan. 28, in the West Central Florida Agricultural Education Center with indoor exhibits that included livestock food suppliers, food growers and agricultural associations and workshops. There was also a Friday experience designed for farm tours. The tours were held in Pasco and Hernando counties, with a final tour on Friday afternoon at the XFARMS, north of Bevilles Corner. The collection of people who attended ranged from large producers to individual growers. AGRItunity is a project of the UF/IFAS Extension offices of Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Pasco and Sumter counties.

Notices TO WHOM IT MA Y CONCERN : This district has received an application for a Department of the Army permit pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. ) and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 U.S.C. ) as described below: APPLICANT : Florida Department of Transportation-District 5 Attn: Hannah Hernandez 719 South Woodland Blvd., Deland, Florida 32720 W A TER W A Y & LOCA TION : The proposed project consists of two segments of Interstate 75 (I-75): Hernando County Line to South of CR 470 (FPID # 242626-2-52-01) known as Segment 1 and from South CR 470 to South of Floridas Turnpike (FPID # 242626-3-52-01) known as Segment 2. The I-75 project corridor is located in Sections 10, 15, 22, 34; Township 19 South; Range 22 East and Sections 3, 9, 10, 15; Township 20 South; Range 22 East in Sumter County, Florida. The proposed widening will impact wetlands associated Lake Panasoffkee, Withlacoochee River, Gum Slough, and Jumper Creek. Directions to the site are as follows: The project includes widening of I-75 from the limits described above. The site can be accessed from I-75. LA TITUDE & LONGITUDE : Point of Beginning: Latitude 28.8731 North Longitude 82.0923 West Point of Ending: Latitude 28.5799 North Longitude 82.2174 West PROJECT PURPOSE : Basic: Road Overall: Widening of I-75 within Sumter County PROPOSED WORK : The applicant proposes to impact 10.82 acres of wetlands and surface waters for the widening of I-75 from an existing four-lane to a six-lane facility by adding two through lanes in the median (one in each direction) within the limits described above. Segment 1 will result in impacts to approximately 6.03 acres as a result of drainage improvements or extension of existing headwalls. Segment 2 will result in the impacts to approximately 4.79 acres of wetlands and surface waters. Widening in the median is required due to constraints associated with the reconstruction of both the 1-75/SR 48 and 1-75/CR 470 interchanges. There is no proposed modification to the existing roadside swales outside these interchanges or modifications to stormwater flows from the existing travel lanes. Besides the widening, the project includes modification to the CR 476B interchange and replacement of the SR 48 and CR 470 bridges. The 1-75 bridge over the Pannasoffkee Creek was widened to six-lanes under a previous contract and will not require any work during this project. There will be no in water work for any bridge rehabilitation or replacement. The other bridges over waters of the US were previously constructed to accommodate the six-lane widening; thus, additional impacts to wetlands or waters of the US are not proposed. The proposed drainage system will include offsite ponds. The proposed drainage system for the segment from the Hernando County Line to approximately 1.5 miles north will discharge and be treated in natural depressions and a borrow pit located in the Withalacoochee State Forest property. FDOT District 7 has been working with the Division of State Lands to obtain approval of the drainage easements and the mitigation associated with use of state lands. This coordination and approval is on-going. A voidance and Minimization Infor mation : The applicant has provided the following information in support of efforts to avoid and/or minimize impacts to the aquatic environment: The FDOT followed the request of the USACE to address Quality Enhancement Strategies (QES) for Wetland Impact Minimization. During the PD&E stage of this project alternative designs were proposed for the roadway improvements that would potentially reduce the quantity of wetland impacts. The preferred alternative selected was the addition of travel lanes in the existing median to reduce and/or eliminate wetland impacts to the thirty-one wetland systems identified adjacent to the right of way. In addition, pond site selection was performed through the selection of three potential sites in each drainage basin to determine potential impacts to wetland and wildlife. The elimination of improvements to the I-75 and Turnpike interchange, which was included during the PD&E phase of the project also result in the elimination of 44.17 acres of wetland impact. Other design alternatives were also explored in order to reduce or eliminate adverse impacts to wetlands, but were found to be unfeasible from a site plan perspective. Compensatory Mitigation : The applicant has offered the following compensatory mitigation plan to offset unavoidable functional loss to the aquatic environment: Wetland impacts will be mitigated with the Senate Bill Program (S. 373.4137 Florida Statues (F.S.)). Southwest Florida Water Management District has developed a mitigation project at the SW 84 -Colt Creek State Park The project will include forested wetland and marsh preservation, restoration and enhancement of approximately 1,200 acres and upland habitat enhancement & restoration of approximately 433 acres. Total anticipated mitigation is expected over 1,633 acres. The mitigation plan can be viewed at http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/pr ojects/mitigation/docs/2011_FDOT_Mitigation_Plan .pdf EXISTING CONDITIONS : Within Segment 1 thirteen wetlands were identified within the existing R/W. These wetlands consist of both herbaceous and forested freshwater systems. The herbaceous systems can best be described as freshwater marsh and wet prairie. These are typically isolated depressions within larger pastures. Vegetation within these herbaceous wetland systems consisted of pennywort (Hydrocotyle umbellata), pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata), water lily (Nymphaea sp.), soft rush (Juncus sp.), maidencane (Amphicarpum mulenbergainum), cattail (Typha sp.), duckweed (Spirodela polyrhiza), elderberry (Sambucus canadensis), and bushy bluestem (Andropogon glomeratus). The remaining wetlands identified along the project corridor were forested and can best be described as mixed hardwood wetlands. These wetlands are part of larger systems that extend well beyond the project right-of-way. Vegetation within these forested wetland systems consisted of laurel oak (Quercus laurifolia),Carolina willow (Salix caroliniana), sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), water oak (Quercus nigra), American elm (Ulmus americana), red maple (Acer rubrum), and pond cypress (Taxodium ascendens). Also identified during field reconnaissance were two surface water systems: Gum Slough and Jumper Creek. These surface water systems extend east and west of the project corridor and function as wildlife corridors for ground dwelling species. No impacts to these surface waters are proposed as the existing bridge structures were constructed with the future widening in mind and can support 3 travel lanes in each direction. Wetland 1 is a palustrine forested wetland (PFO) located west of I-75 and extending into the R/W. Dominate vegetation included red maple (Acer rubrum), salt bush (Baccharris sp.), sugar berry (Celtis laevigata), coin wort (Centella asiatica), button bush (Cephlanthus occidentalis), dog fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium), sweetgum (Liquidambar strayciflua), Carolina willow (Salix caroliniana), poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans), and summer grape (Vitis aestivalis). Wetland 2 is classified as PFO and is hydrologically connected to Gum Slough on the west side of I-75. SW 1 represents Gum Slough.

PAGE2 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY2, 2012 began considering options of the aging building but decided against taking any action until additional information can be gathered. The board had asked County Commissioner Doug Gilpin to get information from the agricultural community about the situation. Gilpin said he has discussed the topic with representatives of the agricultural community and the Agricultural Alliance and I think theres no question that the building is inappropriate for marketing Sumter County agriculture. Gilpin said he did not favor spending money to renovate the existing building. I would not be in favor of putting in 700 and some thousand dollars in a 60-year-old building to accomplish having a little nicer place to show farm animals. Gilpin suggested that a committee be formed to discuss the current and future needs in the agricultural community if a new building was approved. Commission Chairman Garry Breeden suggested that the issue be tabled for about 60 days until more information is collected. The board unanimously supported Breedens recommendation. In the meantime, the board had asked the Tourist Development Council (TDC) for the majority of funding needed to renovate the Cow Palace, estimated to cost $765,000 total. The TDC voted 5 to 1 in early January to recommend the grant application in the amount of $716,581, with the understanding that if the County Commission determines that a new structure would better promote tourism in Sumter County, funding for the new structure would be paid from tourism development tax funds. your creations and earn your ribbon blue, red or white.

PAGE4 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY2, 2012 Bushnell deserves credit for park Its exciting viewing the plans that the City of Bushnell has for its downtown revitalization project. Its not so exciting living without the huge oak tree in front of City Hall. The plans include some elements that are sure to bring new life to the center of Bushnell. When the new year hit, so did the construction work. Gone is the old School Board building that sat on the Florida Street side of the property. Unfortunately, so is the large stately oak tree that provided aesthetic relief to the area. But, after careful examination, city staff determined the tree was unhealthy and needed to be removed. Fortunately, the city has plans to plant new trees to enhance the site, which will be home to a new park, among other things. City leaders have always done well with enhancing city facilities. A look at Kenny Dixon Sports Complex is a good example of how grants and local efforts can result in beneficial improvements. Its expected to take about a year before the new town square park is completed. When its done, it will contain a 35foot gazebo, a decorative fountain and other amenities to enhance the downtown area. There will be bicycle paths and new sidewalks along with about 50 parking spaces. The concept is exciting even though the current site looks a bit barren. When the new park is completed, it will be another good example of how a small city can enhance its facilities and provide its residents with a comfortable and enjoyable setting. Current wildfire threat calls for community awareness The warmer and drier winter conditions we have been experiencing combined with our recent hard freezes have created increased wildfire risk conditions. Although there are currently no burn bans in effect for Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Sumter and Lake counties, if you conduct outside burning of yard waste/debris on your property, make sure you are familiar with your state, county, and municipal outdoor burning laws and follow safe burning practices. Be aware that woods arson and acts of careless public burning contribute significantly to wildfire causes within our five county regions. If you notice any suspicious activity, please call the arson alert phone number at 1-800-3425869 or your local fire agency. Now is the time to be extremely cautious in any outdoor use of fire and prepared to rapidly report an outbreak of wildfires within your neighborhood or community. If you have any questions as to outdoor burning laws or just seek advice on safe burning practices, contact the Withlacoochee Forestry Centers Wildfire Mitigation Specialist, Don Ruths at 352-754-6777 (ext. 119). Withlacoochee Forestry CenterCount your blessingsOnce again it is time to count our many blessings and say thank you to the many people, organizations and businesses that support SCARC, Inc., throughout the past year and to contemplate the challenges of the new year. For Thanksgiving, the Bushnell Assembly of God Church treated participants, staff and guests to its annual thanksgiving feast turkey and dressing with all the trimmings all prepared and served by the willing hands of the church members and coordinated by Ms. Jackie Heminway. SCARC, Inc. participants and staff got into the Christmas spirit by providing gifts for 41 children from Sumter Santa. Jeanne Reed, who has coordinated Sumter Santa for years, presented 392 children ages four months to 18 years of age with at least four Christmas presents plus a present for each parent. Christmas gifts for residents of SCARC, Inc. group homes flowed in from many individuals, groups and organizations assuring that the residents had many surprises on Christmas morning. Gift cards were received from Frank and Andy Cooke, Terry and Johanne Hannah, siblings Peter, Amy and Andy Ashley, and Cowboys for Christ. The Sumter County sheriffs Office collected a variety of gifts for each resident. There were enough to share a gift with each person in SCARCs Supported Living program. On behalf of everyone associated with SCARD, Inc., many, many thanks to everyone who has supported each and every one of these events demonstrating the true spirit of the holiday season. Looking ahead to what 2012 holds can be daunting. SCARC, Inc. started its new fiscal year on Oct. 1, 2011 with over $100,000 less in projected revenue than it did the year before. This was due to another round of state funding reductions that first started eight years ago and most likely will continue this year as the governor and State Legislature wrestle with balancing the state budget. This is a very real threat to the progress of the last 40 to 50 years in developing community services for people with developmental disabilities. It will take every ounce of community support to keep SCARC, Inc. going strong and fulfilling our mission of providing supports and services to people with developmental disabilities. It is a mission we must accomplish, because the alternative is unthinkable.

Seay started his own business 40 years ago and named it Seays Dragline and Bulldozer Service. After careful consideration, Earl decided to bring the dragline tracts to a halt and retire. Earl was born on Feb. 5, 1941 in Webster. He is the son of the late Leroy and Martha Seay. Earl has three sisters: Faye, Joyce and Shirley. When Earl was only three years old, his father died of pneumonia. He was in the Navy at the time. Earl grew up without a father, so he taught himself everything he knows about how to be a man. When Earl was just a boy, he would go out into the woods and he would hunt, fish and camp all by himself. Sometimes, he would take Bob Trowell with him. He would stay for four or five days at a time. Earl would get turtles, squirrels and rabbits and he would bring home 10 to 15 squirrels at a time, and his mother would cook them. One time, he cooked a garfish on a stick and he cooked a pond bird. When Earl was a child, he shined shoes on the streets of Bushnell for 10 cents until he was 14. Thats when he bought his first lawn mower, on credit at Cross Hardware in Bushnell (1955). He put $10 down and paid $5 a week. One time, Earl made $6 in one day mowing lawns and he went and bought his first BB gun. Earl went into the U.S. Army when he was 18 years old. He was 19 when he graduated from jump school with the 82nd Airborne Division. He made 58 parachute jumps. He went to Germany with the 509th Airborne Infantry Division and stayed there two years, then went to Vietnam in 196667. He was in the Army for eight years. When Earl came out of the service, he started working at rock mines in 1967. He worked at St. Catherine rock mine, Dixie Lime and Stone, Center Hill Rock (FCS) and Camp concrete rock mine in Brooksville. Earl decided to go into busiSeay is shown here with his grandson See SEAY Page 5 LSCC foundation receives philanthropic recognition Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. received a statewide philanthropic recognition from the Orlando Business Journal in November 2011 as one the largest private and public grant making foundations in Central Florida. The Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. ranked number twelve out of all Central Florida nonprofits for total giving which includes grants, scholarships, employee matching gifts, and other amounts reported as grants and contributions paid during the year as per Form 990. It feels fantastic to have the Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. be recognized in this way, said Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director. It has been part of our rich 31 year history to continue to find ways that the organizations can fulfill our mission, so this recognition really shows the community what we have done, and what we will continue to do, said Brandeburg. The Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. for 200910 had a total year end giving of $5.6 million that helped to support the college and its mission by providing access to higher education for deserving students through scholarship, leadership opportunities, technological and facility enhancements and special initiatives. This public acknowledgement of our service and commitment to our stakeholders provides a great opportunity to educate the community about what we have been able to accomplish historically, but also helps to motivate us in the future during these challenging economic times, said Brandeburg. All the same, the LSCC Foundation is extremely grateful for the tremendous level of support we receive from its alumni and friends, community partners, corporations, foundations and numerous organizations. 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. For more information on how you can support the Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. contact Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director at (352)365-3518 or brandebr@lscc.edu.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY2, 2012, PAGE5 ness for himself in 1972. He bought his first dragline. Since then, he has owned 10 draglines. He bought his first bulldozer in 1976 and since then has owned eight more. He bought a dump truck in 1984 and another one in 1990. He bought a track hoe in 1990 and another one in 2007. Earl has dug as far as 60 miles away from Sumter County. He really has a gift when it comes to digging ponds. He slopes the banks beautifully to perfection and he can give you any shape that you ask for. The final outcome was always beautiful. He has dug most of the ponds in Sumter County. If he didnt dig it, you can bet he has cleaned it out. For me, the scariest thing to watch was when he would load the dragline onto the transport. The transport is 10-feet wide and so is the dragline. So you didnt have any room to play with. But, like always, he loaded the dragline perfectly. Now Earl is getting on up there in years, I didnt say how old. He has eight acres in Wahoo that keep him busy year round. He has a garden all year long and he also grows his own sugar cane. Every November we start making our own cane syrup. Earl has been making syrup for 10 years now. Earl also collects antiques. He started 40 years ago and has even found some on his dragline jobs. The collection is so extensive that he built a 40-foot by 60-foot barn just to hold it all. He was a member of the Sumter County Cloggers for 22 years. Lets just say Earl puts his heart and soul into everything that he does. Its time for him to slow down a little and enjoy all that he does. Earl has three children Robin, Royce Jr. and Dana. He has seven grandchildren and they all call him Pa-pa. The grandchildren are: Jonathon, Justin, Austin, Taylor, Dillon, Ethan and Kelsie. He has only one granddaughter and he loves to spoil her. He also has five greatgrandchildren Caden, Kyler, Jason, Casyn and Jaelyn. SEAY continued from Page 4 Seay went into the U.S. Army when he was 18 years old and by the time he was 19, he had graduated from jump school with the 82nd Airborne Division. He made 58 parachute jumps. Earl Seay at seven years old. Thomas E. Langley Medical Center is proud to announce Judy Pike as the Employee of the Year for 2011. Judy started her career here at Langley in 1983 and built our HR department and made it what it is today. She has gone above and beyond her duties to assist our employees with a smile on her face even on her worst days. Judy exemplifies every quality of being a TELMC Employee of the Year! EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR The Southwest Florida Water Management District this week completed its organizational restructuring which is expected to reduce District expenses by more than $15 million a year. The reorganization increases efficiencies, reduces operational costs and meets the Districts core mission responsibilities in the areas of water supply, flood protection, water quality and natural systems. We are funded with taxpayer dollars, said Executive Director Blake Guillory. Especially during difficult economic times, we must use sound business principles to provide maximum value to the taxpayers of our District. Guillory and his executive leadership team reviewed each division and program to identify opportunities to improve processes and combine programs for efficiency and effectiveness. We were able to accomplish our goals while still retaining all of our major programs, Guillory said.ReorganizationMany of the organizational changes were driven by a workload and staff analysis conducted by an independent consulting firm. This report identified the potential to increase the Districts efficiency and reduce costs by restructuring the organization and improving its technology, processes and procedures. Part of the changes includes realigning staff based on the types of work they do to increase efficiency and reduce duplication. For example, the creation of the Operations, Maintenance & Construction Division pulled together all the field operations, maintenance and construction of the District under one Division. Under that Division, the Land Resources and Operations bureaus were combined, and a Data Collection Bureau was created to consolidate all data collection efforts. Regulation Significant savings will also result from the reorganization of the Regulation Division. Permitting review processes will be centralized in the Districts Tampa office to ensure that permit applicants throughout the District are treated consistently. Grouping staff by programs in a central location will increase efficiencies, eliminate duplication of services and reduce costs. The District will continue to maintain a local presence in the existing service offices to maintain quality customer service and to ensure that the public has convenient access to District staff. Also, online permitting services are being enhanced and improved to make it easier and more convenient to submit permit applications and access permit data. The District is committed to provide quality service in a timely, convenient and consistent manner to our customers while continuing to protect our precious water resources, Guillory said.Reduction in ForceAs part of the reorganization efforts, the District staff is being reduced by 148 people, most of whom agreed to voluntary separation plans. The remaining reductions include primarily temporary, contractual and student staff. The District will continue to employ 615 by Oct. 1, 2012. Despite the reductions in force, we still have a large, talented pool of employees remaining at the District. I am confident that we can continue to protect the water resources of our region and meet the needs of our citizens.Moving ForwardThanks to its pay-as-yougo philosophy, the District has reserves available to help balance the budget. However, projecting limited growth in our area and slightly declining property values for 2013, the District will continue to look for savings. Just as every business and family has done, we too will be taking a closer look at everything we do, and finding ways to create efficiencies or streamline our operations, said Guillory. Water district reorganization to save $15 million annually Effort increases efficiency, reduces costs and retains major water district programs Northernmost bridge on General James A. Van Fleet State Trail temporarily closed for repairs ~Northernmost bridge on General James A. Van Fleet State Trail closed for repairs~ The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Division of Recreation and Parks has temporarily closed a bridge area on the northern portion of the General James A. Van Fleet State Trail in order to make improvements to the safety and usability of the Trail. Approximately 100 feet of the trail on each end of Bridge #9, the northernmost bridge, will be closed for approximately six months while the bridge is being repaired. Public access to this section of the trail will be restricted. Trail users should use caution along the northern portion of the trail as the transporting of equipment and supplies may occasionally interfere with trail use between the Mabel Trailhead and Bridge #9. It is anticipated the trail will completely reopen no later than June 2012. 000A9DX YOU HAVE YOUR OWN KEY So YOU Decide When You Workout 365/24/7 State of the Art Cardio, Strength and Free Weight Equipment Fastest Growing Fitness Franchise in the Country Ranked in the National Top 20 by Entrepreneur Magazine 1,500 Clubs Nationwide FREE Personal Fitness Orientation Upon Joining Around the Clock Security with Remote Monitoring & Surveillance National Certified Fitness Trainer Available Free Pass to Try for 7 Days ( one per person) 2 FREE Months with a PAID Year Membership $35 per month Gift Certificates Available www.AnytimeFitness.com 2221 W.

CODE: MO Sumter sports Wildwood girls weightlifters establish foundations The Wildwood High girls weightlifters may have paved the way for future success with their work this year. The five Wildcats took part in the district weightlifting meet Wednesday, Jan. 25 at Mitchell High School. The Wildcats didnt qualify anyone for the state meet Feb. 11 in Kissimmee but several of them will likely be coming back next year. They will undoubtedly want some of the action at the state meet. The coach, Mark Streit, said at least 10 lifters so they can possibly win some meets. We are trying to get more and more, said Streit. Candace Solomon (unlimited) and Keyana Solomon (199) both placed the best of the lifters at the Wildcats at the district. They were sitting probably about 10th and they probably ended up sixth or seventh, the coach said. It was all or nothing. Candace had a high of 175 pounds in the bench press and her best clean and jerk was 125 pounds. This is her second year. She is a senior. She and Keyana are both seniors, the coach said. They would have had higher scores if they had gotten involved earlier. Keyana had a best bench of 140 pounds and her best in clean was also 140 pounds. When they first come out, they dont know whats going on, the coach said. They really start learning about it. They trust themselves more. In clean and jerk, they have to look ahead through a hole. They finally understand that. The most difficult lift is the clean and jerk. They really started to get the fundamentals in their second year of lifting. Both Solomons placed first in most of their meets, according to their coach. Kala and Kali Skipper, twin sisters, really grasped the clean and jerk, the coach said. Kala was 90 pounds in the bench press and the clean and jerk. She was in the 129-pound class. Kali was 80 in the bench and 75 in the clean and jerk. Kali is in the 110-pound class. I think they ended up getting some second places. Next year, their confidence will go up. After their doing it, they are sophomores. They will do better. They placed in some meets. We just dont have enough girls to win meets. Charlene Webster, 119 and a senior was in her first year of lifting. She had never done it before but she came in and she looked like she was comfortable from the beginning, the coach said. Her personality fit in with the Solomons. Whatever we lacked in numbers, we made up in personality. We had a lot of fun. The trips were fun. They made friends wherever they went. Skippers will probably lift around other sports, softball and volleyball. They are all around good kids, the coach said. I am now the softball coach. I went ahead and committed to it. As coach, Streit can encourage his lifters to spend more time in the weight room and possibly get more lifters. And maybe, just maybe, the Skippers and possibly might be able to do some heavy lifting next year at the state meet.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY2, 2012, PAGE13 000AETL 000AFS7 Community cats are stray cats roaming our streets and living in wooded areas or deserted buildings. They provide a natural way to keep the rodent population down, eliminating the spread of diseases without harmful pesticides and chemicals. Cats in a community will form into groups or colonies. A colony can be a mixture of abandoned or lost pets, semi wild, and wild cats. Although some people think cats can survive on their own, they can face a life of hardship. Injury, disease, starvation, and attacks by other animals make survival extremely difficult for community cats. Many caring citizens will put out food and water for stray cats, but unless they are spayed and neutered, they will quickly multiply and their numbers become out of control. Statics show that one female cat and her mate and all their kittens can produce 470,000 offspring in just seven years! The solution: Operation Catnip, or Trap-NeuterReturn (TNR). Trap, Neuter, and Return has proven to be the most humane and successful method of reducing stray cat populations. Many cities and communities here in Florida, across America, and around the world, are implementing TNR with huge success. TNR is a 2 step approach: Step One: This involves humanely trapping the cats, spaying and neutering them, and then returning them back to their original location. This not only eliminates new litters being born, but reduces nuisance behaviors that can be attributed to mating behaviors, such as fighting and spray marking. Any tame cats and kittens still young enough to tame can be removed, socialized, and placed for adoption. Step Two: Colony caretakers, who are volunteers or caring citizens, will monitor the cats health while providing daily food, water, and shelter. Over time, the numbers of cats in the colony will naturally diminish, as the cats age and die from natural causes. TNR has long term benefits on community recourses too. It will reduce the number of cats and kittens that would end up in county animal control facilities, saving hundreds of thousands of taxpayers dollars while bringing down the rate of euthanizes. Add to that the benefit of continued natural rodent control, and you have a win-win situation. TNR is endorsed and recommended by the ASPCA, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and every other large and small humane organization. It is a program that every community should actively pursue.

Shown are Danny Russell and Patrick Morey (on top) and owner Larry Everly, Jr. at ground level. Ben Hewitt spoke about the need for both large and small forms of agriculture and about the number of jobs purchasing food directly from the farm can create, according to Sumter County Extension Agent Susan Kelly. Kelly said Hewitt used his data to explain the number of jobs created when the public obtains just five percent of their food supply from local farms. The outdoor exhibits at the event included everything from a dragline service and tractors to a collection of antique farm implements and a carriage. Live llamas, cows, sheep and horses were also part of the experience. The trader show was held Saturday, Jan. 28, in the West Central Florida Agricultural Education Center with indoor exhibits that included livestock food suppliers, food growers and agricultural associations and workshops. There was also a Friday experience designed for farm tours. The tours were held in Pasco and Hernando counties, with a final tour on Friday afternoon at the XFARMS, north of Bevilles Corner. The collection of people who attended ranged from large producers to individual growers. AGRItunity is a project of the UF/IFAS Extension offices of Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Pasco and Sumter counties.

Krauss, Sumter County Supervisor of Elections 900 North Main Street, Bushnell, Florida 33513 January 27, 2012 February 2, 2012. Misc. Notices Misc. Notices Misc. Notices TO WHOM IT MA Y CONCERN : This district has received an application for a Department of the Army permit pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. ) and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 U.S.C. ) as described below: APPLICANT : Florida Department of Transportation-District 5 Attn: Hannah Hernandez 719 South Woodland Blvd., Deland, Florida 32720 W A TER W A Y & LOCA TION : The proposed project consists of two segments of Interstate 75 (I-75): Hernando County Line to South of CR 470 (FPID # 242626-2-52-01) known as Segment 1 and from South CR 470 to South of Floridas Turnpike (FPID # 242626-3-52-01) known as Segment 2. The I-75 project corridor is located in Sections 10, 15, 22, 34; Township 19 South; Range 22 East and Sections 3, 9, 10, 15; Township 20 South; Range 22 East in Sumter County, Florida. The proposed widening will impact wetlands associated Lake Panasoffkee, Withlacoochee River, Gum Slough, and Jumper Creek. Directions to the site are as follows: The project includes widening of I-75 from the limits described above. The site can be accessed from I-75. LA TITUDE & LONGITUDE : Point of Beginning: Latitude 28.8731 North Longitude 82.0923 West Point of Ending: Latitude 28.5799 North Longitude 82.2174 West PROJECT PURPOSE : Basic: Road Overall: Widening of I-75 within Sumter County PROPOSED WORK : The applicant proposes to impact 10.82 acres of wetlands and surface waters for the widening of I-75 from an existing four-lane to a six-lane facility by adding two through lanes in the median (one in each direction) within the limits described above. Segment 1 will result in impacts to approximately 6.03 acres as a result of drainage improvements or extension of existing headwalls. Segment 2 will result in the impacts to approximately 4.79 acres of wetlands and surface waters. Widening in the median is required due to constraints associated with the reconstruction of both the 1-75/SR 48 and 1-75/CR 470 interchanges. There is no proposed modification to the existing roadside swales outside these interchanges or modifications to stormwater flows from the existing travel lanes. Besides the widening, the project includes modification to the CR 476B interchange and replacement of the SR 48 and CR 470 bridges. The 1-75 bridge over the Pannasoffkee Creek was widened to six-lanes under a previous contract and will not require any work during this project. There will be no in water work for any bridge rehabilitation or replacement. The other bridges over waters of the US were previously constructed to accommodate the six-lane widening; thus, additional impacts to wetlands or waters of the US are not proposed. The proposed drainage system will include offsite ponds. The proposed drainage system for the segment from the Hernando County Line to approximately 1.5 miles north will discharge and be treated in natural depressions and a borrow pit located in the Withalacoochee State Forest property. FDOT District 7 has been working with the Division of State Lands to obtain approval of the drainage easements and the mitigation associated with use of state lands. This coordination and approval is on-going. A voidance and Minimization Infor mation : The applicant has provided the following information in support of efforts to avoid and/or minimize impacts to the aquatic environment: The FDOT followed the request of the USACE to address Quality Enhancement Strategies (QES) for Wetland Impact Minimization. During the PD&E stage of this project alternative designs were proposed for the roadway improvements that would potentially reduce the quantity of wetland impacts. The preferred alternative selected was the addition of travel lanes in the existing median to reduce and/or eliminate wetland impacts to the thirty-one wetland systems identified adjacent to the right of way. In addition, pond site selection was performed through the selection of three potential sites in each drainage basin to determine potential impacts to wetland and wildlife. The elimination of improvements to the I-75 and Turnpike interchange, which was included during the PD&E phase of the project also result in the elimination of 44.17 acres of wetland impact. Other design alternatives were also explored in order to reduce or eliminate adverse impacts to wetlands, but were found to be unfeasible from a site plan perspective. Compensatory Mitigation : The applicant has offered the following compensatory mitigation plan to offset unavoidable functional loss to the aquatic environment: Wetland impacts will be mitigated with the Senate Bill Program (S. 373.4137 Florida Statues (F.S.)). Southwest Florida Water Management District has developed a mitigation project at the SW 84 -Colt Creek State Park. The project will include forested wetland and marsh preservation, restoration and enhancement of approximately 1,200 acres and upland habitat enhancement & restoration of approximately 433 acres. Total anticipated mitigation is expected over 1,633 acres. The mitigation plan can be viewed at http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/pr ojects/mitigation/docs/2011_FDOT_Mitigation_Plan .pdf EXISTING CONDITIONS : Within Segment 1 thirteen wetlands were identified within the existing R/W. These wetlands consist of both herbaceous and forested freshwater systems. The herbaceous systems can best be described as freshwater marsh and wet prairie. These are typically isolated depressions within larger pastures. Vegetation within these herbaceous wetland systems consisted of pennywort (Hydrocotyle umbellata), pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata), water lily (Nymphaea sp.), soft rush (Juncus sp.), maidencane (Amphicarpum mulenbergainum), cattail (Typha sp.), duckweed (Spirodela polyrhiza), elderberry (Sambucus canadensis), and bushy bluestem (Andropogon glomeratus). The remaining wetlands identified along the project corridor were forested and can best be described as mixed hardwood wetlands. These wetlands are part of larger systems that extend well beyond the project right-of-way. Vegetation within these forested wetland systems consisted of laurel oak (Quercus laurifolia),Carolina willow (Salix caroliniana), sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua), water oak (Quercus nigra), American elm (Ulmus americana), red maple (Acer rubrum), and pond cypress (Taxodium ascendens). Also identified during field reconnaissance were two surface water systems: Gum Slough and Jumper Creek. These surface water systems extend east and west of the project corridor and function as wildlife corridors for ground dwelling species. No impacts to these surface waters are proposed as the existing bridge structures were constructed with the future widening in mind and can support 3 travel lanes in each direction. Wetland 1 is a palustrine forested wetland (PFO) located west of I-75 and extending into the R/W. Dominate vegetation included red maple (Acer rubrum), salt bush (Baccharris sp.), sugar berry (Celtis laevigata), coin wort (Centella asiatica), button bush (Cephlanthus occidentalis), dog fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium), sweetgum (Liquidambar strayciflua), Carolina willow (Salix caroliniana), poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans), and summer grape (Vitis aestivalis).
