It was a little exciting (I was) a little nervous. I was fine until I got up in the air and then he opened the door and I looked down and saw the ground. If I wouldnt have been strapped to him I probably would not have jumped, said Padgett with a laugh. He did the jump after children in the church raised more than $31,000 for missionary work.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 16, 2012 Cow Palace could be replaced by county I t will be interesting to see what the County Commission will decide to do with the aging Cow Palace at the Sumter County Fairgrounds, north of Webster. The building, going on 60 years old, is definitely showing signs of its age. By todays standards, even the lighting and bleachers are outdated, let alone the structure itself. The place certainly pales in comparison to its neighboring West Central Florida Agricultural Education Center which houses, in part, a number of fair activities and events when the annual event happens in March. Used for a variety of entertainment, exhibits and especially county fair related activities, the Cow Palace has a rich historical connection to th county even though the building has its aging drawbacks. From livestock shows to scholarship pageants, the Cow Palace holds many memories for a lot of Sumter County residents. Within the next few months, a decision will have to be made. The County Commission will consider whether it would be better to renovate the existing facility or build a new facility in its place. Either way, funding already exists for the project through the countys tourism development tax funds. Commissioners will be deciding the issue, but our impression so far is that the board will be likely to vote to construct a new facility. Families and Friends to fight cancer through local Relay For Life Walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer when the American Cancer Societys Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope, Florida gets underway with teams of residents gathering at Central Florida Prostate Cancer Center on April 13 at 6 p.m. Relay For Life of the Villages of Hope events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at Advanced Urology Specialists/Advanced Prostate Cancer Institute, 12109 C.R. 103 (off C.R. 466, behind Walmart) with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay. Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . people from all walks of life all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Societys efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. New teams or individuals wanting to find out more about the Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope are encouraged to attend the Team Meeting on March 14 at 6 p.m. held at The Villages Health System East Campus, 1501 U.S. 441, Second Floor Classroom 1-3. Meet committee chairs, other team members and representatives from the American Cancer Society so you can learn about the event and see how you can help the fight against cancer! For more information about forming a team, contact Debbie Marsich via e-mail at thevillagesrelay@live.com. Relay is a unique opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember those weve lost, and fight back against the disease, said Deborah Jones, Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope, Florida chair. Many of the participants are cancer survivors, which serves as a reminder that the The Villages of Hopes community is not immune to this disease and that by participating in Relay, we are joining with the American Cancer Societys efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Funds raised at Relay For Life of The Villages of Hopes community help the American Cancer Society to impact the lives of those touched by cancer within the community. In 2011, Relay For Life events across the great state of Florida raised over $21 million to help cancer patients and their families in local communities and to fund lifesaving cancer research. The Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope raised $80,000 that helped to fund lifesaving programs and services locally.

OPINIONS INVITED Guest column Sumter County Times O pinion Highway Patrol H ave you ever wondered what it is like to be a state trooper? Here is your chance to catch an inside glimpse! The Florida Highway Patrol announced today the release of Troopers Inside the Florida Highway Patrol, a documentary that features recruits on the path to becoming a state trooper. The Center for Faith and Freedom, Inc., doing business as Salt & Light Productions, produced the 92-minute video that follows the 118th recruit class through the training academy, highlights the many duties performed by the Patrol on an everyday basis and includes touching footage of a law enforcement funeral. The video demonstrates the breadth and depth of the statewide law enforcement agencys role in achieving the vision of a Safer Florida. Stuart J. Roth, Founder and President of the Lakewood Ranch based Salt & Light Productions noted, I felt it was important for citizens all over our state to understand the dedication and commitment to public service that is exemplified by the FHP Unfortunately, we often take for granted those individuals whose primary responsibility is ensuring public safety. This documentary will serve to remind us of the sacrifice being made on a daily basis by the men and women of the FHP FHP is offering the video to Florida media outlets as a public service. Members of the media may request a free copy of the documentary by emailing a request to MarkBrown@flhsmv.gov. A limited number of copies are available, and requests will be filled on a first come, first served basis. The DVD is available for purchase at www.Amazon.com. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer The Big Springs Regional Science Fair brought out the traditional Sumter County participation, with the best and brightest middle and high school students discussing their science research, experimental designs, and interesting conclusions with a host of judges from a variety of professions. Sumter County students join the competition with students from Marion and Levy Counties. Sixty-one very eager young scientists from South Sumter Middle, South Sumter High, Wildwood Middle High, and The Villages Charter School brought 51 projects to the Florida National Guard Armory in Ocala on the morning of Thursday, Feb. 9. The projects were placed in thirteen different categories ranging from Behavioral and Social Sciences to Engineering to Zoology. After two days of judging where some students were interviewed by as many as thirteen different adults, the results proved to be very exciting for Sumter County participants! Of the 51 Sumter County projects competing in the 2012 Big Springs Regional Science Fair, 25 projects earned 1st place awards. Seventeen of those 1st place awards were in the senior division where high school students compete, and 8 were in the junior division of middle school students. In addition to place awards, students were judged for special awards. Many of these came with cash prizes including the coveted Intel Computer Award of $200 which went to Kevin Jenkins of Wildwood Middle High School. Hunter Stafford of The Villages Charter School was recognized by the Florida Engineering Society, Forest Chapter, with a $150 cash award. Sumter County students left the fair with $1600 in cash prizes and a host of special opportunity awards which allow them to compete in other venues with most expenses paid including the Orlando Science Center Challenge. Progress Energy judged projects to select Junior and Senior Engineer for a Day recipients. These students received a safety helmet full of goodies and a day of jobshadowing engineers at one of its area facilities. Sumter County students were selected for the two senior awards. Hunter Stafford, The Villages Charter School, and the team of Amanda Sullivan, Austin Sullivan, and Christopher Robinson, South Sumter High School, were recognized as the Progress Energy awardees. Local businesses and agencies were great supporters of Sumter County students. The Wildwood Rotary Club gave eight $50 awards to deserving students, while the Sumter County Mining Association recognized six students with $50 each for projects related to mining, environmental responsibility, and sustainability. The American Association of University Women (A.A.U.W.), Ocala Chapter, awarded middle school student, Madison Coffey of The Villages Charter School, with $100 for her physics project dealing with electricity. The Lake and Sumter Chapter of the A.A.U.W. recognized five high school girls with $50 cash awards for their excellence in the pursuit of scientific understanding. Brite Leaf Citrus Nursery of Lake Panasoffkee presented a $50 prize to the best agriculture project, which was awarded to the South Sumter High School team of Amanda Sullivan, Austin Sullivan, and Christopher Robinson for their work on a new bass feed. The best medical project went to Anna Torres of The Villages Charter School for her work studying pathogenic bacteria at local medical practices. Anna received $50 from Thomas E. Langley Medical Center. The United States military branches of the Navy, Air Force, and Army also contribute awards each year. The U.S. Navy includes a cash award to its senior recipients. This year, Alex Keeler of South Sumter High School and Anna Torres of The Villages Charter School received the U.S. Navy senior awards with cash prizes. To reach the next level of competition, the first place projects were judged in a second round. Based on this finalist judging, a team was selected to compete at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair to be held in April in Lakeland, Florida. On the team are 13 Sumter County senior division projects and 7 Sumter County junior division projects.

Jaquasa Sesler felt like she had to turn on her inner sparkplug. Tuesday, Feb. 14, yes, Valentines Day, Sesler managed to come up with her own Valentines Day box of chocolates to give to her Wildwood High girls basketball team. With her team just barely ahead of Baldwin High 39-38, Sesler hit six straight points to open the fourth quarter of the Class 1A Regional semifinal. One of them was when she stole the ball and drove the other way for a layup. Her team enjoyed her spark and Sesler went on to score 30 points as the Wildcats downed Baldwin 63-51 at the Wildwood High gym. Wildwood, now 19-5, was able to move on to a regional final Saturday with Newberry High. Baldwin finished with a 14-12 mark. I got everybody going, said Sesler. Thats my job. I have to lead the team. A high point for Sesler and the Wildcats was when Baldwins leading scorer, Karissa Carver, fouled out with 1:56 left in the game. I said thank you, said Sesler. That was the game plan. I thought we played excellent. It keeps us on our goal to get to the Final Four in Lakeland. Wildwood outscored its opponent 24-12 in the fourth quarter. Tiffany Zito added seven points and six rebounds in the final quarter. She finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Novella Ivery added 11 points for the Wildcats. The Wildcats played a typical game. They used aggressive defense, Seslers scoring and a lightning fast break to run past the Indians. The Wildcat coach was grateful for Seslers performance. Thats what she does, said coach Paula Lindsey. Shes always the leader. Zito had an outstanding game. She ruled on the boards. I think we did pretty good. As a coach, you are always looking for improvement. We need more consistency. We had some bad passes.

This years winter event had holiday themes as kindergartners, first graders, and second graders competed in races and games like Reindeer Run, Snowball Chase, and Feed the Reindeer. Grades 3 through 5 took a more athletic focus in the form of mile relays, dodge ball, and tug of war. The most impressive part of this years Winter Olympics was the opening ceremonies. Each class represents a country, and many of the teachers have retained the same country each of the last four years. Flags have become more elaborate, costumes often now reflect the natives. Class (and country) representatives walked down Websters blue basketball court as Olympic Fanfare flowed through the speakers. The Olympics are always an exhausting, but entertaining and exciting two days at WES. Teachers cheer for their classes, and coaches scramble to set up the next event as administrators oversee the activity. Students laugh, play hard, and celebrate. As usual, Websters Olympics were a meaningful, memorable couple of days. Inside Sumter schools The prestigious honor of lighting and the Olympic torch was given to Websters Teacher of the Year, Adam Kedzior. Mr. Kedzior is a phenomenal 5th grade science teacher who inspires and encourages the students to love and understand science.

The Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. exceeded its goal of $225,000 and raised $250,211 to help students in Changing Lives and Building Futures at Lake-Sumter Community College during its Annual Campaign. Our annual campaign went far beyond raising funds. As we move forward through these challenging economic times, more and more people will take advantage of a great education close to home. For many students, the scholarships they receive provide the difference between graduating and achieving their dream of a college education or dropping out. The Annual Campaign ended on Dec. 31, 2011, and the results were presented at the LSCC Foundations Annual Board Meeting on Jan. 11. We are most appreciative of the tremendous support that we receive from our community. It is because of their generosity that Lake-Sumter Community College is able to make it possible for so many students to have the opportunity to achieve their dream of a college education, said Executive Director Rosanne Brandeburg. The money raised will assist the Foundation in continuing its mission to help provide excellence in education, service to the community and financial assistance to students. In 2011, the Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. provided 770 students with scholarships. The record profits were due in-part to the 41 board members from our community that worked hard to help us exceed our goal and team chairs Gail Baker, Sheriff Bill Farmer, Debbie Moffitt, and Dan Tatro.

Welcome our Northern friends, Ive had a few of yall stop by or call me about out-of-state fishing license. An out of state annual freshwater licenses is $47; a 3-day is $17 and a 7 day is $30. Also I found out if you are caught without a license its a $50 fine, court cost and you will be required to purchase a licenses anyway, so just get one then come on down. By the way, your money for this goes toward conservation and maintenance of the states freshwater and saltwater fisheries, and increased law enforcement. If youre 65 and older you just need your drivers licenses or proof of your age. For disabled, the county tax collectors office issue out a complimentary card at no cost for fishing. On this note remember to put all trash in your boat. If youre on Lake Panasoffkee, just stop by Tracys Point Fishing Lodge and I will take your trash.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 16, 2012, P AGE 11 0 0 0 A F S 7 Sumter sports Wildwood quarterback Sean Hensley started his football career eight years ago, playing Pop Warner in The Villages. Last week, he signed on with Stetson University and notes, It is a huge relief to have been able to sign and know where Im going. Hensley also has the added bonus of heading off to college with his best friend. Hensley and The Villages High School linebacker Cody Holton both signed to play at Stetson. Sean and Cody have been best friends since elementary school and were teammates until Sean transferred to Wildwood the spring of his freshman year, said his mom Patti. Sean said he wanted to attend college close to home. He really liked the Stetson campus and coaches so it was a great fit when they offered him a chance to play. As an added bonus, hell have the opportunity once again to be a teammate of Codys. Michael and I are proud that Sean will be fulfilling his dream of having an opportunity of playing football at the collegiate level. We were excited to be able to watch Scott, Seans older brother, play football for Jacksonville University, and were just as excited to be able to watch Sean play for Stetson, said Mrs. Hensley. His education plans include majoring in sports management or business and continuing his education right on to a masters degree. His academic strengths include math and science. He said he credits his father Mike and brother Scott with his pursuit of the game and has high expectations, When I am playing I expect perfection from myself. Among his most memorable moments on the field, he said it was a juggling touchdown catch I made my freshman year at The Villages against Crescent City a district game. We won by seven points. The ball was thrown by his brother. A perfect throw, Hensley said another player tipped the ball and I bobbled it two or three times then got my feet in for the touchdown. Sean is the most competitive athlete I have ever coached, noting that Hensley hates to lose and pushes his teammates to match his own desire to win. Like Danzell, Sean is receiving a full academic scholarship to Stetson and it is a testament to our teachers and staff here that a studentathlete is a student first, before they can achieve greatness on the field, LaBranche said. As for his achievements, Hensley was captain for the past two seasons, team MVP last season, nominated for Wendys High School Heisman and this year, the 1A first team all state punter. He, his father and his mom Patti live in Fruitland Park. His brother Scott now attends Jacksonville University. Hensley signs with Stetson B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Wildwoods Sean Hensley (center) is shown signing a letter of intent to play for Stetson University as family, friends and school faculty give their support.

BUSHNELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Bushnell Elementary announces Character Education Student of the Month for January. The characteristic that was focused on for this month was Trustworthiness Scouts launch local food drive Scouts might soon visit your neighborhood during the next two weeks to deliver their annual Scouting For Food bags to collect donations for the hungry. Thousands of Gulf Ridge Council Scouts will fan out door-to-door across eight counties in this annual Good Turn project. Theyll return Saturday, Feb. 18, to gather any nonperishable food items left on doorsteps for pick-up. 350,000 bags were produced for this years Good Turn effort, and the Gulf Ridge Council Scouts hope to collect enough food to provide 100,000 meals for the hungry this year. Residents receiving the bags are asked to generously contribute essential foodstuffs such as canned meats, tuna, macaroni and cheese, cereal, canned vegetables and fruits. Personal care items are also needed. Feeding America Tampa Bay is in need of more nutritious dry goods and nonperishable items than were receiving, and Scouting for Food can help us accomplish that objective, said Pat Rogers, the food banks Executive Director. Canned and boxed dry goods donations are harder to come by and these foods are the traditional staple of most emergency pantries the Food Bank supports. These are some of the products that the Scouts will be looking to collect when gathering donations from each neighborhood. The food will be distributed through Feeding America Tampa Bay and its network of partner nonprofit feeding programs. We are hoping that our combined efforts with both Feeding America Tampa Bay and the Gulf Ridge Council Scouts will be able to make a huge impact in our community, said Rogers. This is will be a significant help in making sure that the families in the area are receiving the food assistance they need. Coincidentally, many of the Scouts will be helping their peers due to the fact that a lot of what we do is geared towards child hunger, Rogers stated. The annual food drive also enables Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Venturers and Explorers to fulfill their Good Turn commitment to the community, in keeping with Scoutings effort to promote a culture of service to others. Last years Scouting For Food generated more than 25 tons of donated food that were turned over to local food banks and pantries for sorting and distribution. The Scouts know that hunger is a critical problem that exists year round. We are proud that the drives February timing helps replenish supplies after the holiday season, said Jeff Rock, a senior district executive for the Gulf Ridge Council. Most recent USDA data reports that 17 percent of Tampa Bay residents are food insecure meaning they lack consistent access to a nutritious, well-balanced diet. An earlier study released by Feeding America found that 30 percent of the areas children struggle with hunger. About Feeding America Tampa Bay (formerly named Americas Second Harvest of Tampa Bay) Founded in 1982, Feeding America Tampa Bay serves a poverty population of close to 700,000 across West Central Florida; 250,000 of those struggling with hunger in the area are children. Receiving surplus food donations from growers, manufacturers, supermarkets and organized community food drives, the large regional food bank distributes food to the needy through a network of 600 hunger relief charities. In the past 12 months, the Tampa-based food bank supplied more than 24 million pounds of food to its 10-county service area enough to provide more than a million and a half meals every month to those who would otherwise go hungry. Feeding America Tampa Bay is a member of the national Feeding America network. feedingamericatampabay.org About Gulf Ridge Council, Boy Scouts of America The Overall Mission of the Gulf Ridge Council, Boy Scouts of America, is to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The Council serves youth in the counties of Citrus, Hardee, Hernando, Highlands, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk and Sumter. The Boy Scouts and the Food Bank are asking for the community to remember to put their bags on their door knobs for pickup on Saturday, Feb. 18. Contact Walter McKnight with any questions: (813) 643-7343.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 16, 2012, P AGE 13 Taking to the sky to raise funds for missionary work B ack when the children were at $26,000 of their $30,000 goal, their pastor didnt think the dare they gave him sounded too bad. After all, Chuck Padgett had already slept on a billboard sign, camped out in front of a Walmart store for a week and taken the Polar Bear Plunge, all to raise money for missionary work whats a little skydive jump? Thats what he was thinking weeks ago, when he first issued the challenge to bring in the extra $4,000. They brought in another $5,000, raising more than $31,000. It was a little exciting (I was) a little nervous. I was fine until I got up in the air and then he opened the door and I looked down and saw the ground. If I wouldnt have been strapped to him I probably would not have jumped, said Padgett as he laughed. He recalled thinking back to when the idea was first mentioned. No big deal, he thought, Ive lived on billboards for a week. Each year, we set a goal and if they make that goal, I will do something crazy, he said with humor, adding that it will be hard to beat jumping out of an airplane. The fundraiser is for the Oxford Assembly of God childrens program, Boys and Girls Ministry Challenge or BGMC. Now 54 years old, the program has provided thousands of dollars to missionaries around the world in their effort to spread the Gospel. Sometimes the children bring in their pennies, dimes and nickels, sometimes they earn the money through larger fundraisers. I asked them to give up a Coke and candy bar a week thats $10 a month, he said. Their fundraisers included parking motorcycles during Bike Week in Leesburg. Padgett said his brother owns property in the area and allows the children a chance to make the parking money on the event. Theyve hosted chicken and rice dinners, sold candy bars and more. The ministry draws 70 to 90 children each week, ages 3 to 12 years. He said the first Sunday of each month is their mission Sunday. Thats when we really emphasize missions, he said, adding that they try to help the children understand how Were blessed here in American, with all we have and the importance of helping people hear about Jesus. In the past, the funds raised by the children have purchased an iPad for one missionary and sent another to medical camp. Theyve purchased goats and curriculum whatever the missionaries need to help spread the Gospel in other countries. In March, theyll close out this years fundraising efforts in a big celebration banquet and service. The event is slated to start at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 25. Padgett said its open to all and asks those who plan to attend to call and RSVP at 352-7486124. For more information about the overall program, check out the childrens ministries at www.AG.org B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Pastor Chuck Padgett (front) on his way down with the parachute opening behind him on his first skydive. The jump was Padgett keeping his end of a bargain he struck with children in the Oxford Assembly of God youth ministry group. Padgett told them if they raised $30,000 for missionaries, he would go skydiving. They raised $31,500.

A s a volunteer foster home for homeless dogs with our local Humane Society, I feel it is my responsibility to learn all I can about canine behavior and humane training techniques. Each dog that I have been privileged to care for has had different personalities and different needs. My joy is to transform frightened or untrained dogs into polite canines that anyone would love to adopt. First I must help each foster dog to feel safe and secure by giving him/her the knowledge that food and water will be consistently provided, and that they will be safe and warm, with a clean place to sleep. Each personality is different, but when a dog begins to relax in his/her new environment, then it is time to start teaching basic manners. This will insure that my foster dogs will have the best chance to find forever homes. Different personalities require different training techniques, hence my responsibility to learn all I can about dogs and dog training. A recent article from The Whole Dog Journal states that many dogs are relinquished to shelters because they could not be house trained. Many people mistake submissive urination with a house training problem. I sometimes have this problem when a new foster dog comes to stay with me. A naturally submissive, frightened, or timid dog may have this problem. Punishment of any kind or a domineering approach will only worsen the behavior. A submissive dog may exhibit other telling behaviors, such as lowered body posture, rolling over, avoiding eye contact, flattened ears, and licking. Submissive dogs can regain their confidence with patience and simple behavior modification techniques. Greet the timid dog calmly and quietly without any sudden movements. Never bend over the dog, and avoid petting him/her on the head and direct eye contact. Instead, kneel down and turn slightly sideways to greet the dog on his/her level. Extend your hand, speak softly, and scratch under the chin. Offering treats will help a frightened dog begin to trust you. Be consistent. When accidents do occur, it is imperative to not react with any form of punishment, verbal or physical. Taking insecure dogs out for frequent potty breaks helps, as an empty or near empty bladder can help during training. Teaching a submissive dog basic commands, such as sit and stay, and to walk on leash, will build his/her confidence, develop a bridge of communication and trust, and bring a happy outcome to both human and dog. Whether you have canine or feline family members, it behooves you to learn all you can about the pet of your choice. Your understanding of their body language and unique needs, along with humane training methods will make for a well adapted pet that will give you enjoyment for many years.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY16, 2012 Cow Palace could be replaced by county It will be interesting to see what the County Commission will decide to do with the aging Cow Palace at the Sumter County Fairgrounds, north of Webster. The building, going on 60 years old, is definitely showing signs of its age. By todays standards, even the lighting and bleachers are outdated, let alone the structure itself. The place certainly pales in comparison to its neighboring West Central Florida Agricultural Education Center which houses, in part, a number of fair activities and events when the annual event happens in March. Used for a variety of entertainment, exhibits and especially county fair related activities, the Cow Palace has a rich historical connection to th county even though the building has its aging drawbacks. From livestock shows to scholarship pageants, the Cow Palace holds many memories for a lot of Sumter County residents. Within the next few months, a decision will have to be made. The County Commission will consider whether it would be better to renovate the existing facility or build a new facility in its place. Either way, funding already exists for the project through the countys tourism development tax funds. Commissioners will be deciding the issue, but our impression so far is that the board will be likely to vote to construct a new facility. Families and Friends to fight cancer through local Relay For Life Walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer when the American Cancer Societys Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope, Florida gets underway with teams of residents gathering at Central Florida Prostate Cancer Center on April 13 at 6 p.m. Relay For Life of the Villages of Hope events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at Advanced Urology Specialists/Advanced Prostate Cancer Institute, 12109 C.R. 103 (off C.R. 466, behind Walmart) with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay. Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . people from all walks of life all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Societys efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. New teams or individuals wanting to find out more about the Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope are encouraged to attend the Team Meeting on March 14 at 6 p.m. held at The Villages Health System East Campus, 1501 U.S. 441, Second Floor Classroom 1-3. Meet committee chairs, other team members and representatives from the American Cancer Society so you can learn about the event and see how you can help the fight against cancer! For more information about forming a team, contact Debbie Marsich via e-mail at thevillagesrelay@live.com. Relay is a unique opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember those weve lost, and fight back against the disease, said Deborah Jones, Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope, Florida chair. Many of the participants are cancer survivors, which serves as a reminder that the The Villages of Hopes community is not immune to this disease and that by participating in Relay, we are joining with the American Cancer Societys efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Funds raised at Relay For Life of The Villages of Hopes community help the American Cancer Society to impact the lives of those touched by cancer within the community. In 2011, Relay For Life events across the great state of Florida raised over $21 million to help cancer patients and their families in local communities and to fund lifesaving cancer research. The Relay For Life of The Villages of Hope raised $80,000 that helped to fund lifesaving programs and services locally. Our most requested program, Road to Recovery, provides transportation for patients to and from lifesaving cancer treatments. Last year 53 patients were served by The Road to Recovery program in Lake & Sumter Counties. All of this is made possible by Relay For Life.

Here is your chance to catch an inside glimpse! The Florida Highway Patrol announced today the release of Troopers Inside the Florida Highway Patrol, a documentary that features recruits on the path to becoming a state trooper. The Center for Faith and Freedom, Inc., doing business as Salt & Light Productions, produced the 92-minute video that follows the 118th recruit class through the training academy, highlights the many duties performed by the Patrol on an everyday basis and includes touching footage of a law enforcement funeral. The video demonstrates the breadth and depth of the statewide law enforcement agencys role in achieving the vision of a Safer Florida. Stuart J. Roth, Founder and President of the Lakewood Ranch based Salt & Light Productions noted, I felt it was important for citizens all over our state to understand the dedication and commitment to public service that is exemplified by the FHP. Unfortunately, we often take for granted those individuals whose primary responsibility is ensuring public safety. This documentary will serve to remind us of the sacrifice being made on a daily basis by the men and women of the FHP. FHP is offering the video to Florida media outlets as a public service. Members of the media may request a free copy of the documentary by emailing a request to MarkBrown@flhsmv.gov. A limited number of copies are available, and requests will be filled on a first come, first served basis. The DVD is available for purchase at www.Amazon.com. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer The Big Springs Regional Science Fair brought out the traditional Sumter County participation, with the best and brightest middle and high school students discussing their science research, experimental designs, and interesting conclusions with a host of judges from a variety of professions. Sumter County students join the competition with students from Marion and Levy Counties. Sixty-one very eager young scientists from South Sumter Middle, South Sumter High, Wildwood Middle High, and The Villages Charter School brought 51 projects to the Florida National Guard Armory in Ocala on the morning of Thursday, Feb. 9. The projects were placed in thirteen different categories ranging from Behavioral and Social Sciences to Engineering to Zoology. After two days of judging where some students were interviewed by as many as thirteen different adults, the results proved to be very exciting for Sumter County participants! Of the 51 Sumter County projects competing in the 2012 Big Springs Regional Science Fair, 25 projects earned 1st place awards. Seventeen of those 1st place awards were in the senior division where high school students compete, and 8 were in the junior division of middle school students. In addition to place awards, students were judged for special awards. Many of these came with cash prizes including the coveted Intel Computer Award of $200 which went to Kevin Jenkins of Wildwood Middle High School. Hunter Stafford of The Villages Charter School was recognized by the Florida Engineering Society, Forest Chapter, with a $150 cash award. Sumter County students left the fair with $1600 in cash prizes and a host of special opportunity awards which allow them to compete in other venues with most expenses paid including the Orlando Science Center Challenge. Progress Energy judged projects to select Junior and Senior Engineer for a Day recipients. These students received a safety helmet full of goodies and a day of jobshadowing engineers at one of its area facilities. Sumter County students were selected for the two senior awards. Hunter Stafford, The Villages Charter School, and the team of Amanda Sullivan, Austin Sullivan, and Christopher Robinson, South Sumter High School, were recognized as the Progress Energy awardees. Local businesses and agencies were great supporters of Sumter County students. The Wildwood Rotary Club gave eight $50 awards to deserving students, while the Sumter County Mining Association recognized six students with $50 each for projects related to mining, environmental responsibility, and sustainability. The American Association of University Women (A.A.U.W.), Ocala Chapter, awarded middle school student, Madison Coffey of The Villages Charter School, with $100 for her physics project dealing with electricity. The Lake and Sumter Chapter of the A.A.U.W. recognized five high school girls with $50 cash awards for their excellence in the pursuit of scientific understanding. Brite Leaf Citrus Nursery of Lake Panasoffkee presented a $50 prize to the best agriculture project, which was awarded to the South Sumter High School team of Amanda Sullivan, Austin Sullivan, and Christopher Robinson for their work on a new bass feed. The best medical project went to Anna Torres of The Villages Charter School for her work studying pathogenic bacteria at local medical practices. Anna received $50 from Thomas E. Langley Medical Center. The United States military branches of the Navy, Air Force, and Army also contribute awards each year. The U.S. Navy includes a cash award to its senior recipients. This year, Alex Keeler of South Sumter High School and Anna Torres of The Villages Charter School received the U.S. Navy senior awards with cash prizes. To reach the next level of competition, the first place projects were judged in a second round. Based on this finalist judging, a team was selected to compete at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair to be held in April in Lakeland, Florida. On the team are 13 Sumter County senior division projects and 7 Sumter County junior division projects.

Jaquasa Sesler felt like she had to turn on her inner sparkplug. Tuesday, Feb. 14, yes, Valentines Day, Sesler managed to come up with her own Valentines Day box of chocolates to give to her Wildwood High girls basketball team. With her team just barely ahead of Baldwin High 39-38, Sesler hit six straight points to open the fourth quarter of the Class 1A Regional semifinal. One of them was when she stole the ball and drove the other way for a layup. Her team enjoyed her spark and Sesler went on to score 30 points as the Wildcats downed Baldwin 63-51 at the Wildwood High gym. Wildwood, now 19-5, was able to move on to a regional final Saturday with Newberry High. Baldwin finished with a 14-12 mark. I got everybody going, said Sesler. Thats my job. I have to lead the team. A high point for Sesler and the Wildcats was when Baldwins leading scorer, Karissa Carver, fouled out with 1:56 left in the game. I said thank you, said Sesler. That was the game plan. I thought we played excellent. It keeps us on our goal to get to the Final Four in Lakeland. Wildwood outscored its opponent 24-12 in the fourth quarter. Tiffany Zito added seven points and six rebounds in the final quarter. She finished with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Novella Ivery added 11 points for the Wildcats. The Wildcats played a typical game. They used aggressive defense, Seslers scoring and a lightning fast break to run past the Indians. The Wildcat coach was grateful for Seslers performance. Thats what she does, said coach Paula Lindsey. Shes always the leader. Zito had an outstanding game. She ruled on the boards. I think we did pretty good. As a coach, you are always looking for improvement. We need more consistency. We had some bad passes.SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY16, 2012, PAGE7 the following Sumter County students will once again present their research, experimental designs, data, and conclusions and be interviewed by a host of professionals: from South Sumter High School, Alex Keeler, Breanne Williams, Kyal Bannister, Nathan Jameson, Hunter Truesdale, Alyssa Ibarra, Lachonda Lacey; from Wildwood Middle High School, Kody Ondriezek, Kevin Jenkins; from South Sumter Middle School, Willliam Jameson; and from The Villages Charter School, Mackinzie McDaniel, Hunter Stafford, Anna Torres, Lauren Nieves, Elizabeth Fairchild, Hayden Siverson, Isabel Torres, Kunal Upadya, Ugwumsinachi Nwaubani, and Madison Coffey.

This years winter event had holiday themes as kindergartners, first graders, and second graders competed in races and games like Reindeer Run, Snowball Chase, and Feed the Reindeer. Grades 3 through 5 took a more athletic focus in the form of mile relays, dodge ball, and tug of war. The most impressive part of this years Winter Olympics was the opening ceremonies. Each class represents a country, and many of the teachers have retained the same country each of the last four years. Flags have become more elaborate, costumes often now reflect the natives. Class (and country) representatives walked down Websters blue basketball court as Olympic Fanfare flowed through the speakers. The Olympics are always an exhausting, but entertaining and exciting two days at WES. Teachers cheer for their classes, and coaches scramble to set up the next event as administrators oversee the activity. Students laugh, play hard, and celebrate. As usual, Websters Olympics were a meaningful, memorable couple of days. Inside Sumter schools The prestigious honor of lighting and the Olympic torch was given to Websters Teacher of the Year, Adam Kedzior. Mr. Kedzior is a phenomenal 5th grade science teacher who inspires and encourages the students to love and understand science. Ms. Elaine Ford is Websters School Related Employee of the year and District Wide Finalist for this impressive honor.

To qualify for the Deans List, students must maintain a 3.5 grade point average while taking a minimum of 12 hours. North Greenville University, located in Tigerville at the foothills of Glassy Mountain, is a co-educational liberal arts institution which provides opportunities for higher education in a biblically sound, Christ-centered environment and is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award bachelor and graduate degrees in 30 degree programs. The Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. exceeded its goal of $225,000 and raised $250,211 to help students in Changing Lives and Building Futures at Lake-Sumter Community College during its Annual Campaign. Our annual campaign went far beyond raising funds. As we move forward through these challenging economic times, more and more people will take advantage of a great education close to home. For many students, the scholarships they receive provide the difference between graduating and achieving their dream of a college education or dropping out. The Annual Campaign ended on Dec. 31, 2011, and the results were presented at the LSCC Foundations Annual Board Meeting on Jan. 11. We are most appreciative of the tremendous support that we receive from our community. It is because of their generosity that Lake-Sumter Community College is able to make it possible for so many students to have the opportunity to achieve their dream of a college education, said Executive Director Rosanne Brandeburg. The money raised will assist the Foundation in continuing its mission to help provide excellence in education, service to the community and financial assistance to students. In 2011, the Lake-Sumter Community College Foundation, Inc. provided 770 students with scholarships. The record profits were due in-part to the 41 board members from our community that worked hard to help us exceed our goal and team chairs Gail Baker, Sheriff Bill Farmer, Debbie Moffitt, and Dan Tatro. In the words of Franklin D. Roosevelt, we cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

They just keep feeding. I love when people say that we have no fish in our lake, well that just leaves more for us believers. The weather has changed on us this week and the specks are really gearing up, so get your speck gear ready. Welcome our Northern friends, Ive had a few of yall stop by or call me about out-of-state fishing license. An out of state annual freshwater licenses is $47; a 3-day is $17 and a 7 day is $30. Also I found out if you are caught without a license its a $50 fine, court cost and you will be required to purchase a licenses anyway, so just get one then come on down. By the way, your money for this goes toward conservation and maintenance of the states freshwater and saltwater fisheries, and increased law enforcement. If youre 65 and older you just need your drivers licenses or proof of your age. For disabled, the county tax collectors office issue out a complimentary card at no cost for fishing. On this note remember to put all trash in your boat. If youre on Lake Panasoffkee, just stop by Tracys Point Fishing Lodge and I will take your trash. Our lake is beautiful, lets all keep it that way. If you have any questions about our lake or need any help with fishing please stop by or call. Check out our web site at www.tracyspoint.com, we have a lot of information that might be useful.SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY16, 2012, PAGE11 000AFS7 Sumter sports Wildwood quarterback Sean Hensley started his football career eight years ago, playing Pop Warner in The Villages. Last week, he signed on with Stetson University and notes, It is a huge relief to have been able to sign and know where Im going. Hensley also has the added bonus of heading off to college with his best friend. Hensley and The Villages High School linebacker Cody Holton both signed to play at Stetson. Sean and Cody have been best friends since elementary school and were teammates until Sean transferred to Wildwood the spring of his freshman year, said his mom Patti. Sean said he wanted to attend college close to home. He really liked the Stetson campus and coaches so it was a great fit when they offered him a chance to play. As an added bonus, hell have the opportunity once again to be a teammate of Codys. Michael and I are proud that Sean will be fulfilling his dream of having an opportunity of playing football at the collegiate level. We were excited to be able to watch Scott, Seans older brother, play football for Jacksonville University, and were just as excited to be able to watch Sean play for Stetson, said Mrs. Hensley. His education plans include majoring in sports management or business and continuing his education right on to a masters degree. His academic strengths include math and science. He said he credits his father Mike and brother Scott with his pursuit of the game and has high expectations, When I am playing I expect perfection from myself. Among his most memorable moments on the field, he said it was a juggling touchdown catch I made my freshman year at The Villages against Crescent City a district game. We won by seven points. The ball was thrown by his brother. A perfect throw, Hensley said another player tipped the ball and I bobbled it two or three times then got my feet in for the touchdown. Sean is the most competitive athlete I have ever coached, noting that Hensley hates to lose and pushes his teammates to match his own desire to win. Like Danzell, Sean is receiving a full academic scholarship to Stetson and it is a testament to our teachers and staff here that a studentathlete is a student first, before they can achieve greatness on the field, LaBranche said. As for his achievements, Hensley was captain for the past two seasons, team MVP last season, nominated for Wendys High School Heisman and this year, the 1A first team all state punter. He, his father and his mom Patti live in Fruitland Park. His brother Scott now attends Jacksonville University. Hensley signs with Stetson BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Wildwoods Sean Hensley (center) is shown signing a letter of intent to play for Stetson University as family, friends and school faculty give their support.

BUSHNELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL Bushnell Elementary announces Character Education Student of the Month for January. The characteristic that was focused on for this month was Trustworthiness Scouts launch local food drive Scouts might soon visit your neighborhood during the next two weeks to deliver their annual Scouting For Food bags to collect donations for the hungry. Thousands of Gulf Ridge Council Scouts will fan out door-to-door across eight counties in this annual Good Turn project. Theyll return Saturday, Feb. 18, to gather any nonperishable food items left on doorsteps for pick-up. 350,000 bags were produced for this years Good Turn effort, and the Gulf Ridge Council Scouts hope to collect enough food to provide 100,000 meals for the hungry this year. Residents receiving the bags are asked to generously contribute essential foodstuffs such as canned meats, tuna, macaroni and cheese, cereal, canned vegetables and fruits. Personal care items are also needed. Feeding America Tampa Bay is in need of more nutritious dry goods and nonperishable items than were receiving, and Scouting for Food can help us accomplish that objective, said Pat Rogers, the food banks Executive Director. Canned and boxed dry goods donations are harder to come by and these foods are the traditional staple of most emergency pantries the Food Bank supports. These are some of the products that the Scouts will be looking to collect when gathering donations from each neighborhood. The food will be distributed through Feeding America Tampa Bay and its network of partner nonprofit feeding programs. We are hoping that our combined efforts with both Feeding America Tampa Bay and the Gulf Ridge Council Scouts will be able to make a huge impact in our community, said Rogers. This is will be a significant help in making sure that the families in the area are receiving the food assistance they need. Coincidentally, many of the Scouts will be helping their peers due to the fact that a lot of what we do is geared towards child hunger, Rogers stated. The annual food drive also enables Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Venturers and Explorers to fulfill their Good Turn commitment to the community, in keeping with Scoutings effort to promote a culture of service to others. Last years Scouting For Food generated more than 25 tons of donated food that were turned over to local food banks and pantries for sorting and distribution. The Scouts know that hunger is a critical problem that exists year round. We are proud that the drives February timing helps replenish supplies after the holiday season, said Jeff Rock, a senior district executive for the Gulf Ridge Council. Most recent USDA data reports that 17 percent of Tampa Bay residents are food insecure meaning they lack consistent access to a nutritious, well-balanced diet. An earlier study released by Feeding America found that 30 percent of the areas children struggle with hunger. About Feeding America Tampa Bay (formerly named Americas Second Harvest of Tampa Bay) Founded in 1982, Feeding America Tampa Bay serves a poverty population of close to 700,000 across West Central Florida; 250,000 of those struggling with hunger in the area are children. Receiving surplus food donations from growers, manufacturers, supermarkets and organized community food drives, the large regional food bank distributes food to the needy through a network of 600 hunger relief charities. In the past 12 months, the Tampa-based food bank supplied more than 24 million pounds of food to its 10-county service area enough to provide more than a million and a half meals every month to those who would otherwise go hungry. Feeding America Tampa Bay is a member of the national Feeding America network. feedingamericatampabay.org About Gulf Ridge Council, Boy Scouts of America The Overall Mission of the Gulf Ridge Council, Boy Scouts of America, is to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY16, 2012, PAGE13 Taking to the sky to raise funds for missionary work Back when the children were at $26,000 of their $30,000 goal, their pastor didnt think the dare they gave him sounded too bad. After all, Chuck Padgett had already slept on a billboard sign, camped out in front of a Walmart store for a week and taken the Polar Bear Plunge, all to raise money for missionary work whats a little skydive jump? Thats what he was thinking weeks ago, when he first issued the challenge to bring in the extra $4,000. They brought in another $5,000, raising more than $31,000. It was a little exciting (I was) a little nervous. I was fine until I got up in the air and then he opened the door and I looked down and saw the ground. If I wouldnt have been strapped to him I probably would not have jumped, said Padgett as he laughed. He recalled thinking back to when the idea was first mentioned. No big deal, he thought, Ive lived on billboards for a week. Each year, we set a goal and if they make that goal, I will do something crazy, he said with humor, adding that it will be hard to beat jumping out of an airplane. The fundraiser is for the Oxford Assembly of God childrens program, Boys and Girls Ministry Challenge or BGMC. Now 54 years old, the program has provided thousands of dollars to missionaries around the world in their effort to spread the Gospel. Sometimes the children bring in their pennies, dimes and nickels, sometimes they earn the money through larger fundraisers. I asked them to give up a Coke and candy bar a week thats $10 a month, he said. Their fundraisers included parking motorcycles during Bike Week in Leesburg. Padgett said his brother owns property in the area and allows the children a chance to make the parking money on the event. Theyve hosted chicken and rice dinners, sold candy bars and more. The ministry draws 70 to 90 children each week, ages 3 to 12 years. He said the first Sunday of each month is their mission Sunday. Thats when we really emphasize missions, he said, adding that they try to help the children understand how Were blessed here in American, with all we have and the importance of helping people hear about Jesus. In the past, the funds raised by the children have purchased an iPad for one missionary and sent another to medical camp. Theyve purchased goats and curriculum whatever the missionaries need to help spread the Gospel in other countries. In March, theyll close out this years fundraising efforts in a big celebration banquet and service. The event is slated to start at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 25. Padgett said its open to all and asks those who plan to attend to call and RSVP at 352-7486124. For more information about the overall program, check out the childrens ministries at www.AG.org BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Pastor Chuck Padgett (front) on his way down with the parachute opening behind him on his first skydive. The jump was Padgett keeping his end of a bargain he struck with children in the Oxford Assembly of God youth ministry group. Padgett told them if they raised $30,000 for missionaries, he would go skydiving. They raised $31,500.

As a volunteer foster home for homeless dogs with our local Humane Society, I feel it is my responsibility to learn all I can about canine behavior and humane training techniques. Each dog that I have been privileged to care for has had different personalities and different needs. My joy is to transform frightened or untrained dogs into polite canines that anyone would love to adopt. First I must help each foster dog to feel safe and secure by giving him/her the knowledge that food and water will be consistently provided, and that they will be safe and warm, with a clean place to sleep. Each personality is different, but when a dog begins to relax in his/her new environment, then it is time to start teaching basic manners. This will insure that my foster dogs will have the best chance to find forever homes. Different personalities require different training techniques, hence my responsibility to learn all I can about dogs and dog training. A recent article from The Whole Dog Journal states that many dogs are relinquished to shelters because they could not be house trained. Many people mistake submissive urination with a house training problem. I sometimes have this problem when a new foster dog comes to stay with me. A naturally submissive, frightened, or timid dog may have this problem. Punishment of any kind or a domineering approach will only worsen the behavior. A submissive dog may exhibit other telling behaviors, such as lowered body posture, rolling over, avoiding eye contact, flattened ears, and licking. Submissive dogs can regain their confidence with patience and simple behavior modification techniques. Greet the timid dog calmly and quietly without any sudden movements. Never bend over the dog, and avoid petting him/her on the head and direct eye contact. Instead, kneel down and turn slightly sideways to greet the dog on his/her level. Extend your hand, speak softly, and scratch under the chin. Offering treats will help a frightened dog begin to trust you. Be consistent. When accidents do occur, it is imperative to not react with any form of punishment, verbal or physical. Taking insecure dogs out for frequent potty breaks helps, as an empty or near empty bladder can help during training. Teaching a submissive dog basic commands, such as sit and stay, and to walk on leash, will build his/her confidence, develop a bridge of communication and trust, and bring a happy outcome to both human and dog. Whether you have canine or feline family members, it behooves you to learn all you can about the pet of your choice. Your understanding of their body language and unique needs, along with humane training methods will make for a well adapted pet that will give you enjoyment for many years.
