The departments latest operation, conducted during the past week, resulted in the arrest of 23 suspects. Called STARCOP 2, Sumter County sheriffs detectives partnered with sheriffs office detectives from Citrus, Lake, Manatee, Orange, Osceola, and Polk counties, Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and Florida Department of Law Enforcement during the week-long operation. Sheriffs detectives posed as adults, guardians of minors and minors on the Internet communicating with individuals who traveled to Bushnell to engage in sexual activities with a minor, according to a sheriffs office report.

After seeing an article in The Sumter County Times, Mrs. Squire called the sheriffs office to report that she was well, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. We did a face-to-face meeting to ensure that she was alright, Caruthers said. The Sumter Fair Association has always prided itself on providing a scholarship pageant for little girls and young ladies of this County to participate in. This years pageant marks the 50th Miss Sumter County pageant to be sponsored by the Fair Association. Beginning in 1961 there have been 50 well deserved individuals chosen to represent this County and have done so as positive influences Who will be the 50th queen?

ment, the report states. After communicating with suspects and establishing probable cause that the suspects intended to engage in sexual activities with minors, detectives provided suspects with the address of the Bushnell residence or agreed to meet suspects at a predetermined secondary location. When the suspects arrived at either location, they were arrested by deputies. During the operation, detectives logged more than 400 hours on the Internet that culminated with the arrest of the 23 suspects, the seizure of 12 vehicles, the execution of two search warrants, and other various electronic devices. This is the second installment of Project STARCOP The inaugural operation was conducted in March 2011 in Wildwood. In that similar operation, 22 suspects were arrested after traveling to a Wildwood residence to engage in sexual activities with a minor. Most of those cases have since been disposed of through the Sumter County court system. All defendants have either been found guilty at trial or pled guilty and sentenced, according to the report. During this operation, suspects believed they were communicating with and then meeting a child that was 14 years old or younger, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. Law enforcement officers communicated with the suspects on a variety of websites and in different chat rooms, Hofecker said. We really werent surprised with the amount of arrests, especially after the first operation, he said. Its just a shame as a society that we have to conduct these types of operations. Its just an epidemic that has to be addressed. More than 30 law enforcement officers participated in the operation, he said. Arrests:David Carrasco, 25, Kissimmee, charged with use of the Internet to solicit the guardian of a child for sex, traveling to meet a minor for sex, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Gabriel A. Roman, 19, Winter Park; Harry J. Shrager, 22, Tavares; Jose Almagro Taborda, 32, Haines City; Roderick B. Green, 21, Orlando; John R. Lamb, 68, Roxboro, N.C.; Russell N. Cowles, 33, Lakeland; charged with use of the Internet to solicit the guardian of a child for sex, traveling to meet a minor for sex and unlawful use of a two-way communication device. Gary Butcher, 22, Haines City (additionally charged with transmittal of harmful material to a minor); Steven L. Brooks, 43, Land O Lakes; Raymond L. Thompson, 54, Spring Hill; Christopher Duane Olson, 20, Green Cove Springs; Gary A. Thurber, 53, Prescott, Wis.; John T. Bell, 54, Mayo; Jeffrey L. Long, 46, Wesley Chapel (additionally charged with violation of probation); Newman A. Crunk III, 34, Land O Lakes; David F. Honaker, 24, Ocala; Luis A. Rodriquez (additionally charged with resisting officer without violence) were charged with use of the Internet to solicit the parent of a child for sex, traveling to meet a minor for sex and unlawful use of a two-way communication device. Franscisco M. Gomez, 35, Ocala; John C. Cruzado, 23, Port Richey; Richard M. Arzivian, 27, Deltona; Robert H. Walton, 23, Port Richey; Lance J. Pollack, 41, St. Petersburg; Ryan M. Hewes, 26, Kissimmee; were charged with use of the Internet to solicit a minor for sex, traveling to meet a minor for sex and unlawful use of a two-way communication device. Bond amounts varied between $45,000 and $75,000. All the suspects were taken to the Sumter County Detention Center. As part of the Sumter County Sheriffs Office initiative to protect children from Internet predators, the office is providing parents and guardians with a free software program called Computer Cop. The computer program allows parents to scan their childs computer to see what Internet sites are being visited and what images are being viewed. It is available at local high schools or by calling the sheriffs office at 569-1600.

Police report For some Sumter County residents, it could be good news for others, not so much. During a workshop session last week, the County Commission considered whether the current fire impact fees one for The Villages and one for the remainder of Sumter County should be rescinded. Initially, County Administrator Bradley Arnold said he thought both fees could be eliminated in the foreseeable future. However, Arnold told board members last Tuesday during the workshop that after discussing the issue with representatives of The Villages, he believes the fee will be necessary to continue paying for improvements and upgrades in The Villages fire district. In particular, funding will be necessary to pay for two fire stations in The Villages and so the fees should be continued. However, Arnold had a different analysis for the fire impact fees outside The Villages. He said once improvements have been made to the Lake Panasoffkee Fire Department, he believes the Sumter County fire impact fees could be terminated. Arnold told commissioners that once the improvements are made to that fire station, the impact fees collected from regions outside The Village fire district will have accomplished their purpose and could be ended when the current fiscal year closes on Sept. 30, 2012. Arnold asked that the board consider setting a public hearing to consider ending the fee charge. Both fire impact fees were created by the County Commission in 2005 in order to fund new fire stations, purchase new equipment and make improvements to existing stations. Commissioners were hesitant to schedule the hearing. County Commissioner Doug Gilpin said he would support ending the fee as long as we are covered and are very sure that were covered. The public hearing will be scheduled when the board meets in March. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, in the government offices in Bushnell.

B OB R EICHMAN Editor The Sumter County Sheriffs Office, in partnership with The Village Fire Rescue and Sumter County Fire Rescue will be sponsoring Operation Medicine Cabinet. This will give Sumter County residents a chance to dispose of unused or expired prescriptions. The event will be held on Saturday, March 3, at The Villages Sweetbay Supermarket at 820 Old Camp Rd, The Villages, and also at The Sumter County Sheriffs Office, 1010 N. Main St., Bushnell. Deputies and firefighters will be on hand to retrieve the discarded medicines from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Proper disposal prevents the medicine from being stolen or abused. Thrown into the garbage, pharmaceuticals can wind up leeching into the environment. lushed down a toilet the medicines can contaminate groundwater supply. Disposing of unused or expired medicine will also keep children and grandchildren from getting into the prescriptions. Operation Medicine Cabinet provides a safe way of destroying pharmaceuticals through incineration, to avoid polluting the environment. Help us keep medications from getting into the wrong hands or our water supply. Operation Medicine Cabinet Sumter County introduces new fire trucks into service Sumter County Fire and EMS introduced a new Freightliner Fire Engine into service at Station 31 Downtown Wildwood on Tuesday, Feb. 21. Engine 31 was put into service following a long-held fire service tradition that dates back to the days of horse-drawn fire apparatus. The Housing Ceremony welcomed the new apparatus to the community and the fire station. Frank Ennist, Deputy Chief of Operations, narrated each step of the ceremony, first symbolically transferring the water from the older vehicle to the new truck. During the next segment of the ceremony the firefighters transferred their equipment to the new truck. County Commissioners Don Burgess, Garry Breeden, Doug Gilpin and Randy Mask participated in the washing of the wheels, a tradition signaling a clean and well-maintained vehicle and firefighters at the ready. During the final part of the ceremony firefighters and dignitaries symbolically pushed the new engine into its new home. Engine 31 was joined the following day by its twin, Engine 21 housed at station 21 in Lake Panasoffkee. Both vehicles were designed with ergonomics and safety in mind; newly implemented on both vehicles are hydraulic lifts for the ladders and large suction hoses that are mounted lower on the truck which allow for safer and more rapid access during emergencies. Both are replacement vehicles purchased through a competitive bid process. EMS introduced a new Freightliner fire engine into service at Station 31 Downtown Wildwood on Tuesday, Feb. 21.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 1, 2012 Some kudos for the county administrator C ounty Administrator Bradley Arnold deserves some credit for his reluctance to continue on with the way the county has been expending funds to provide local mental health care. The issue came to light last year during budget workshops when LifeStream Behavioral Center submitted its typical budget request to the county seeking $90,000 in county matching funds to provide the countys required financial contribution for providing mental health care. Arnold wasnt satisfied with the contractual agreement that the county had for providing the 25 percent matching funds for mental health services as required by the state. Arnolds concern wasnt with LifeStream, it was with the lack of a formula for determining what the local match should be. In order to get better clarification, Arnold asked the board to seek an opinion from the State Attorney Generals Office about just what type of contract should exist between the county and its mental health provider. That query has resulted in the county attempting to change its agreement so that it actually has an agreement with the state Department of Children and Families (DCF) rather than with LifeStream. DCF is the contractual agent that the county should be dealing with and LifeStream is the agency that DCF contracts with to provide mental health care services in Sumter County and in Lake County, according to the State Attorney Generals opinion. But coming to an agreement hasnt been easy. Arnold has told county commissioners that a newly forged agreement needs to be in place by July 1, 2012, the beginning of the contractual year. Arnold said he has been working with representatives of DCF to create an agreement that channels the countys payment to DCF rather than directly to LifeStream. Neither Arnold nor the County Commission seems to have any qualms with the service LifeStream provides, this issue seems to purely focus on the methodology of paying out the funds and figuring out an appropriate formula for funding. Apparently, Arnolds query has also attracted the attention of other counties in the state who are also interested in developing similar agreements with DCF. LifeStream cant be blamed for creating this problem either. Its an agreement that has been ongoing in its existing form for years. No one has ever really looked at it before and challenged it the way Arnold has. Its good work on his part. Dear Friends, We are currently updating our mailing list.

To Whom Much is GivenObama said; To whom much is given, much will be required in essence pointing his finger at the wealthy. However on analysis, just to whom has much been given? For the most part, the wealthy have earned their money; it wasnt given to them! It is those who pay no Federal income tax that Much Has Been Given! Given in the form of untold social programs and tax returns they did not earn from a system that they did not pay into, not to mention the military, roads and postal service that they enjoy but contribute zero Federal Income Tax to support. You know for the General Welfare! They pay; zip, zero, nada but they get all the Welfare! I would suggest, it is those who pay zip, zero, nada, that truly, Much Has Been Given Much Should Be Required! Phil Longo Defense cuts endanger our national security The 2013 Defense Department budget cuts military spending by $487 billion over 10 years, which translates into eliminating six Air Force fighter squadrons, cutting 16 ships from the Navy, and reducing the Army and Marine Corps by 80,000 to 100,000 troops over five years. Our thinking is that future wars will be fought with more high technology weapons and fewer troops. The problem is we could lose highly qualified military personnel because of the cutbacks. The end result could mean we will have a plethora of high technology weapon systems available, but lack the quantity and quality of non-commissioned and commissioned military leaders to employ the equipment. Another $600 billion in defense cuts could be enacted if Congress does not act to change current laws. Unfortunately, our military strategy might be faulty. Lets look at a few countries who could be potential adversaries. China has a multi-million man army and a large air force. It is upgrading its missile systems and developing anti-ship missiles that could threaten U.S. naval forces. It is in the process of deploying two aircraft carriers and building up its submarine fleet. China seeks to dominate Southeast Asia and wants to annex Taiwan. It is a close ally of North Korea. North Korea has a million man army and continues to expand its missile capabilities. It poses a threat to South Korea, and maintains a goal of uniting Korea under its domain. It has nuclear weapons and continues to sell nuclear and missile technology to a number of countries, including Iran. Iran threatens the Middle East region with an aggressive attitude and the potential development of nuclear weapons. It has missile systems capable of hitting targets in other Arab countries, Israel and Western Europe. Iran has acquired some submarines and is building up its navy. It has a close relationship with Venezuela and might want to establish a naval base in that country. Venezuela threatens South American and Central American countries. President Chavez is friendly with Castro of Cuba, and has developed a military relationship with Russia. He has purchased a significant quantity of arms from Russia and has allowed Russian warships to use Venezuelan port facilities. Russia is a Communist country that could still threaten world peace. It supports Irans nuclear program, and it is upgrading its land military forces with the latest weaponry and is refurbishing its navy. Another concern for the U.S. is the potential rise of radical Islamists in a number of countries in North Africa and the Middle East. As the totalitarian governments in the region fail, they could be replaced with Islamic forces who might implement Sharia law and who could be antagonistic and possibly adversarial to the U.S. The weakening of the U.S. military with the proposed budget cuts could embolden potential adversaries to expand militarily in their respective regions. We need to maintain a strong military posture to protect our national security and promote peace in the world by deterring potential adversaries from launching military adventures. Donald A. Moskowitz Former PO2 and LT, U.S. Navy Londonderry, NH Its a cash mob headed toward Wildwood market Flash mobs are all the rage these days, as groups of people gather at a specified location and take part in some type of act that may seem pointless or unusual, before dispersing. The group may gather for anything from a pillow fight to participating in a surprise marriage proposal and the groups of people, mostly strangers to one another, are organized through social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Saturday, March 17, theres a flash mob being planned for Wildwood, but rather than entertainment, the crowd is asked to be a cash mob, coming out to support the Wildwood Growers Market and local business. Each participant is asked to spend $20 at the market. Supporting local businesses is more important now than ever and this is just one way we can lend a helping hand, said Sumter County Extension Agent Susan Kelly. She said she heard about the idea at the Office of Sustainability in Gainesville and thought, What a great idea. It was about three weeks ago and she contacted the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce and market manager Jerry Townsend and both were on board with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences immediately. Typically, there are 30 vendors at the market, selling everything from fresh fruits, produce and citrus to plants and handmade craft items, such as aprons and jewelry. Kelly said theyre even hoping to get a large cash mob group out of Orlando involved. People are excited about it its something new, she said. According to Townsend, this group is expected to spend cold, hard cash to support local businesses, rather than dancing or pillow fighting. The hope is to continue spreading the cash, right on to local restaurants through a post-mob celebration. Were supporting local farmers and local businesses the money stays in the local community, said Chamber director Andy Cripps. Theyve been working with local restaurants to get discounts on lunch or brunch, for mob members who check in at the Chamber booth. Townsend notes that rules are simple: number one, spend $20; number two, meet three people you didnt know before you arrived and rule number three, have fun. The market opens at 9 a.m. with cash mob members asked to arrive by 10 a.m. and check in at the Chamber booth to get directions on post mob activities.

The 2012 Give Kids a Smile program at Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provided 46 youngsters with the opportunity to have a variety of dental work done that ranged from teeth cleanings to tooth extractions, from x-rays to fluoride treatment. Working throughout the day, with six dentists, six or seven dental hygienists and dozens of other volunteers, the dental center provided more than $17,000 of free dental services to youngsters, according to Zelda Novak, practice administrator. It was a great event, she said. It is the third year the center has participated in the free program sponsored by the American Dental Association, she said. This year, youngster participation almost doubled last year. The event is aimed at helping provide dental care access to the underprivileged. In order to participate, eligible families must be at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. The free dental work was available to children from 4 to 13 years old.

P AGE 10SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 1, 2012 Weekly fishing report and news from Tracys Point Fishing Lodge for week ending Jan. 22 Report by Donna and Steve Lind Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 292 Anglers Bass Fishing 241 Bass caught 306 Bass Released 289 Pan Fish caught 268Gary Kubal, known as QBall. just returned from Norway with Bobby Bare where they participated in an international music contest in which they ended up winners. Interesting facts about this avid fisherman: He has been the drummer for Bobby Bare for 30 years. He was with Bobby when Bobby was at the top of his game (not that he still isnt at 74 years old. In addition to being the drummer, Q-Ball handles all of the administrative matters for Mr. Bare including booking new gigs, working with other bands such as Merle Haggard, Mel Tillis (to mention a few) to establish new gigs, travel itinerary, etc. Both Bare and Q-Ball have been fantastic customers of ours for 9 years Their next stop is Canada for an upcoming concert. We look forward to having them back next year! Don Cahoon from Michigan is also another regular customer here at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Don is a real good fisherman and caught a nice 10 pound lunker last week with a white fluke fishing mid lake. In addition one of our guests, Rob Woodcock caught a 3-pounder right off of the Tracys Point Pavillon on Thursday of last week. Lamar Miller caught two nice fish using a watermelon seed worm. As for this weeks fishing report, the bass have obviously been biting well on both shiners as well as artificial baits such as plastics, ratl traps and swim baits. While quite a number of small bass have been caught, as you can see from this weeks photos, weve had some lunkers. I dont expect the bass fishing to slow down anytime soon. Many visitors are asking when the crappie (specks) will be turning on. My answer is soon I anticipate they will start bedding within the next several weeks. I thought I might provide you with a few tips for catching specks in anticipation of them turning on soon: Crappie Fishing Tips Dont set the hook too hard. Crappie have thin mouths and its easy to pull the hook right through them. Use light line and a light rod so you can properly fight the fish without pulling out the hook. Go tiny! Crappie have small mouths, so you need to use small lures and hooks. Consider chumming. This crappie fishing secret will bring those crappie to the surface in a heartbeat and they will take your hook a lot easier. Make sure it is legal for your area, but if it is then you definitely want to give it a shot. How to Catch Crappie? Those who want to learn how to catch crappie will not have a lot of complex learning to do. These are active fish and they have such a varied diet that they are easy to work with. The best time for catching crappie is in the spring. They move shallow to spawn and readily bite small minnow imitations. The most popular crappie rig is a small grub or tube jig below a slip bobber. This allows the bait to be vertically jigged while away from the boat or shore. On Lake Panasoffkee they also like live minnows in fact it is my opinion that your chances are better with live bait. Keep in mind that a crappies eyes look up, so you better off setting the jig to be a little higher than the fish instead of being right on the bottom. For crappie fishing during the summer time, it is best to fish in shaded areas around deeper water. Good luck and good fishin! Some things fishy Gary Kubal with a nice catch. Don Cahoon is shown with a nice 10 pound lunker caught last week with a white fluke fishing mid lake. Rob Woodcock caught this 3 pounder right off of the Tracys Point Pavillon on Thursday of last week. Lamar Miller, right off of Tracys Point,caught both of these nice fish using a watermelon seed worm.

Graham held Weeki Wachee High to two hits, struck out seven and the South Sumter High team beat the Hernando County team 10-0 in a Class 4ADistrict 6 game. South Sumter is now 2-0 in district play and 3-1 overall. Graham is now 2-0. I felt like my fastball was on point and I was comfortable with my curveball, Graham said. I feel like we have a lot of talent on this team and we could become unbeatable. The Raiders can do some hitting as well. They had 11 hits and took advantage of four Weeki Wachee errors. Weeki Wachee starting pitcher Dustin Bauer was saddled with the loss. South Sumter looked like it would blow its opponent away at Raiders field. Kyle Vaught led off with a double and scored on Bo Farmers single. Jared Lozano singled and Farmer and Lozano scored when Dalton Moss singled and there was an outfield error. The score was 4-0 after the first inning. In the second, Cameron Hayes singled, reached second on a wild pitch and scored on a passed ball. The Raiders made this a mercy rule game with five runs in the sixth inning. Garett McMullen singled, stole second and scored on a throwing error. Zack Sullivan reached on an outfield error and took third on a wild pitch. Vaught walked and moved up on two wild pitches. Farmer walked. Vaught and Farmer both scored when Lozano hit a double deep to left. Clay Simmons singled to score Lozano and end the game. Winning 10-0 tends to make coaches happy. I felt good, said South Sumter coach Fred Popp. Winning a district game is always great. Call Graham did really well. I always expect us to do well. I put a lot of expectations on us. We are still young but have a lot of talent this year. L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent Win an iPad2 for a $20 donation? Make a $20 donation and maybe you can win an iPad2!

P AGE 12SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 1, 2012 BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesBushnell Elementary School Principal John Temple donned his Dr. Seuss hat for a reading of the famous Cat in the Hat on Monda y morning. Temple and Cat paired up to share with the children as part of the schools annual Dr. Seuss birthday celebration. The event is one of several curriculums to encourage children to read. The children are (at left, front to back) Doby Gibson, Landon Northup, Levi Barnes, Haley Spencer, Cheyenne Haire; (at right, front to back) Ethan Parks, Margarita Bolonas, Trenton Guess. Seuss on the loose BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesCat settled in with children from Bushnell Elementary School, just before going on stage for the reading of The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss. Cat is shown here with Tyler Weber, Avery Youngblood and Kierstyn Newell. Yes! Yes! At BES, could you guess? Yes! Yes! Hes on the loose, that man we know, that Dr. Seuss! Rhyming verse and equation, sparking each imagination Silly cat and counted fish, hatching egg and balanced dish, Why fun is found in every book! See there, just look! Its green eggs and ham they cook! And on it goes as a week of rhyme and imagination fill the classrooms at Bushnell Elementary School just one of several campuses across the nation to take part in the annual birthday celebration of the late Dr. Seuss. While the birthday celebration offers plenty of fun and Dr. Seuss, an author and artist, is more than worthy of the honor, the real idea behind the activities is to promote reading and build literacy. The school has been taking part in the literacy program for the last 20 years under the leadership of teacher Kathy Hairston. They started the week with a reading of The Cat in the Hat, in the lunchroom. Cat even managed to show up and act out the book, alongside Principal John Temple, who did the reading. Hairston notes its the love of reading that children acquire from fun activities that are centered on the stories in the books. We still try to inspire students to become the best they can be with activities that generate a love for reading that enables them to become good readers and great students, she said. Seuss books have characters the children get excited about, according to Temple. The students love Dr. Seuss books, he said. Theyre just fun reads. Temple cited the rhyming verse in Seuss books and said its very helpful in teaching them to read and the stories themselves are fun and imaginative. At this age, its critical to encourage that imagination. He said the children in upper classes will include some Seuss in the week, but the real drive is for the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. Theyll share books in class this week, participate in a crazy sock day on Wednesday and a special feast on Friday. were going to end the week with green eggs and ham, said Temple. Seuss was born March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Mass. and has a collection of books to his credit, including And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, Horton Hatches the Egg, The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Yertle the Turtle, Green Eggs and Ham and Oh, the Places Youll Go! Bushnell Elementary School congratulate (from left to right) Emily Collett in Ms. Kellys class, Danielle Holloway in Mrs. Bryants class, Kindle Hon in Mrs. Sheas class, Isaiah Figueroa in Ms. Barness class, Tristan Hattaway in Ms. Evanss class, and Jake Mayo in Ms. Valdezs class for being the Science Super Stars for the second grading period by scoring the highest on a special science test. These students had to compete with over 100 fellow fifth graders by taking tests on science vocabulary and scientific concepts.

P AGE 14SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 1, 2012 Sumter calendar Solution to puzzle on page 15 Critter chatter Beware of household toxins W e do our best to keep our pets healthy and safe. Yet danger lurks around our home with common household items that are poisonous to our pets. The ASPCA Poison Control Hotline alone received more than 165,000 calls last year about pets that ingested a harmful substance. Thousands more have called veterinarians and local emergency veterinarian clinics for the same reasons. It is important to know what items present a danger to our pets so that we can prevent a harmful or worse, fatal situation. Topping the list of harmful ingested substances was prescription medications. Any pill that may drop on the floor can be quickly eaten by a chow hound or curious kitty. The ASPCA suggests you take your medications in a place safely away from your pets. Did you know that some over the counter human medications can kill your pet? Ibuprofen and acetaminophen are deadly to a dog or cat. Never give any medication without checking with your veterinarian first. Some human foods can cause medical emergencies for your pet. Too much chocolate can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and seizures. The sugar substitute, Xylitol, used in some foods and gum, can cause liver failure and seizures. Grapes and raisins can cause medical emergencies too. Household, lawn or pet insecticides should be used with great care. Always read the directions carefully. Lawn and garden items, as well as fertilizers can also cause harm. Keep any unused products well out of the reach of nosey pets. Numerous plants are toxic to pets, so it is wise to familiarize yourself with the various plants that will cause harm to dogs, cats, and horses too. Mouse or rat baits can be very inviting to your pet. Rodenticides can cause internal bleeding, kidney failure, and seizures. The number of pets poisoned by automotive products has declined due to more pets being inside family members. However, hazards are numerous in garages where paints, brake fluid, antifreeze and other items are stored. When medications are prescribed by your veterinarian, follow prescribed dosages, and call your veterinarian if your pet ingests more than the prescribed dosage. Never mix medications without checking with your veterinarian. Knowledge and prevention will hopefully keep our pets safe. However, even with the utmost care, accidents can happen. Be prepared. If your veterinarians office is closed, always have the phone number of the closest emergency veterinarian clinic handy. Your fast actions can mean the difference between life and death for your furry family member. This is JJ Buster. JJ is a rough coat Jack Russell Terrier.

The Friends Members Only Preview Sale will be on the 7th from noon until 6 p.m. This will be the only book sale this year at the Rec. Center due to scheduling conflicts in November. So come out early and help us make this a great book sale so we can fund library programs all year. If you would be able to volunteer during the book sale or to set up or clean up, please call Patricia at 793-2007. We will also be collecting donations for our annual gift to Lake Panasoffkee Elementary School. Our goal is to provide their media center with $500 to supplement their budget for library materials. Please give as generously as you can so we can encourage a love of reading in our youth. Volunteer Appreciation The Friends would like to express our gratitude to the numerous volunteers who have helped make our events a success. Halloween in the Park, the Christmas Parade and Party, Book Sales and other events require many hours of making telephone calls, setting up, manning games, sorting books for the book sale, assisting with greetings, decorating, sorting prizes, providing refreshments among others. We couldnt have done it without the support of our volunteers. Thank you all! Halloween in the Park Sponsors In addition to the hours of volunteer help, events also need funding to purchase supplies, prizes and other necessities. For Halloween in the Park, our longest running and best attended event, these monetary needs have historically been more than our book sale fundraising could meet. Generous sponsors have stepped up to help us continue to provide the community with this safe Halloween festivity. We would like to thank the following people and businesses who answered the plea for help: Bobbie Beresovoy Andrew I. Cobo, DMD, PA Doris Day, Markland Chiropractic Clinic Inc. Pana Vista Lodge, Inc. Purcell Funeral Home Inc. SECO VFW Auxiliary Post 10087 New Board MembersDuring the December Annual Meeting, Friends members voted in the following Officers: Patricia Tillis, President Carol Dixon, Vice President Marty Money, Secretary Denise Atherton, Treasurer Wendel Martinkovic, Director Evelyn Vilet, Director Irene Beissel, Director Bruce Wolfe, Director Martha Vickers, Director Alternate Directors: Penny Rosenburg and Barbara Word. Pennys Worth As we voted in a new president we were saddened to say goodbye to Penny Rosenburg who has served as president for many years. Her hard work and numerous hours of time has been the Gold Standard for the rest of us to aspire to. During our February Board Meeting the Friends presented Penny with an engraved photo box which stated: With heartfelt appreciation, the Friends of the Panasoffkee Community Library recognize our leader and friend, Penny Rosenburg, for many years of dedicated service. No mere token of thanks could ever come close to expressing how much Penny has meant to the Friends group as an organization and as a group of friends. Although she will be available for consultation and active as an alternate director, we will miss her almost daily leadership. We wish her all the best in her retirement. Mission Statement To promote and develop the Panasoffkee Community Library by strengthening programs and services.Board Meetings on Different DatesThe Monthly Board Meetings have been changed to the second Tuesday of the month. They will still be at 5:30 in the library. Wed love to see you there. Meet the BoardBruce Wolfe is currently serving as a director on the Board of Directors. He has been with the Friends for three years. He was born in Seattle, grew up in Chester, WV and has lived in too many places to list. Bruce has lived in Lake Panasoffkee for five years and recently married Susan Clanton. He has a teenage grandchild. He is very involved in church and with the Moose. He was awarded Moose of the Year and Rookie of the Year! When he gets a free moment he likes to work on the computer, read fantasy books and football. We asked him what he thought about the Friends:FPCLN: What would you like to see the FPCL accomplish this year? Bruce: Expansion. FPCLN: In five or ten years? Bruce: Continued growth. FPCLN: What are you particularly proud of regarding the FPCL? Bruce: The scholarship program. FPCLN: What would you describe as the most challenging thing in working with the FPCL? Bruce: Trying to keep up membership. FPCLN: What one thing about you might surprise our readers? Bruce: I used to play the trombone in high school. Well, were not sure when that talent might be allowed in the library but you never know! We certainly appreciate his enthusiasm for our organization. Thanks for all you hard work, Bruce!

The departments latest operation, conducted during the past week, resulted in the arrest of 23 suspects. Called STARCOP 2, Sumter County sheriffs detectives partnered with sheriffs office detectives from Citrus, Lake, Manatee, Orange, Osceola, and Polk counties, Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and Florida Department of Law Enforcement during the week-long operation. Sheriffs detectives posed as adults, guardians of minors and minors on the Internet communicating with individuals who traveled to Bushnell to engage in sexual activities with a minor, according to a sheriffs office report. Detectives occupied a Bushnell residence during the operation that had been equipped with computers and audio and video recording equipRoderick Green BOBREICHMAN Editor Woman found safe Christopher Olson Gary Thurber David Carrasco Jeffrey Long John Lamb Newman Crunk John Bell Lance Pollack Robert Walton Jose Taborda Richard Arzivian The Sumter County Sheriffs Office ended its search for missing St. Catherine resident Lori Squire on Friday. After seeing an article in The Sumter County Times, Mrs. Squire called the sheriffs office to report that she was well, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. We did a face-to-face meeting to ensure that she was alright, Caruthers said. The Sumter Fair Association has always prided itself on providing a scholarship pageant for little girls and young ladies of this County to participate in. This years pageant marks the 50th Miss Sumter County pageant to be sponsored by the Fair Association. Beginning in 1961 there have been 50 well deserved individuals chosen to represent this County and have done so as positive influences Who will be the 50th queen?See 5othPage 5 The 2012 Miss Sumter County Pageant contestants are shown with Miss Sumter County 2011 Sterling Smith.

ment, the report states. After communicating with suspects and establishing probable cause that the suspects intended to engage in sexual activities with minors, detectives provided suspects with the address of the Bushnell residence or agreed to meet suspects at a predetermined secondary location. When the suspects arrived at either location, they were arrested by deputies. During the operation, detectives logged more than 400 hours on the Internet that culminated with the arrest of the 23 suspects, the seizure of 12 vehicles, the execution of two search warrants, and other various electronic devices. This is the second installment of Project STARCOP The inaugural operation was conducted in March 2011 in Wildwood. In that similar operation, 22 suspects were arrested after traveling to a Wildwood residence to engage in sexual activities with a minor. Most of those cases have since been disposed of through the Sumter County court system. All defendants have either been found guilty at trial or pled guilty and sentenced, according to the report. During this operation, suspects believed they were communicating with and then meeting a child that was 14 years old or younger, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. Law enforcement officers communicated with the suspects on a variety of websites and in different chat rooms, Hofecker said. We really werent surprised with the amount of arrests, especially after the first operation, he said. Its just a shame as a society that we have to conduct these types of operations. Its just an epidemic that has to be addressed. More than 30 law enforcement officers participated in the operation, he said.Arrests:David Carrasco, 25, Kissimmee, charged with use of the Internet to solicit the guardian of a child for sex, traveling to meet a minor for sex, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Gabriel A. Roman, 19, Winter Park; Harry J. Shrager, 22, Tavares; Jose Almagro Taborda, 32, Haines City; Roderick B. Green, 21, Orlando; John R. Lamb, 68, Roxboro, N.C.; Russell N.

As part of the Sumter County Sheriffs Office initiative to protect children from Internet predators, the office is providing parents and guardians with a free software program called Computer Cop. The computer program allows parents to scan their childs computer to see what Internet sites are being visited and what images are being viewed. It is available at local high schools or by calling the sheriffs office at 569-1600.

Police report For some Sumter County residents, it could be good news for others, not so much. During a workshop session last week, the County Commission considered whether the current fire impact fees one for The Villages and one for the remainder of Sumter County should be rescinded. Initially, County Administrator Bradley Arnold said he thought both fees could be eliminated in the foreseeable future. However, Arnold told board members last Tuesday during the workshop that after discussing the issue with representatives of The Villages, he believes the fee will be necessary to continue paying for improvements and upgrades in The Villages fire district. In particular, funding will be necessary to pay for two fire stations in The Villages and so the fees should be continued. However, Arnold had a different analysis for the fire impact fees outside The Villages. He said once improvements have been made to the Lake Panasoffkee Fire Department, he believes the Sumter County fire impact fees could be terminated. Arnold told commissioners that once the improvements are made to that fire station, the impact fees collected from regions outside The Village fire district will have accomplished their purpose and could be ended when the current fiscal year closes on Sept. 30, 2012. Arnold asked that the board consider setting a public hearing to consider ending the fee charge. Both fire impact fees were created by the County Commission in 2005 in order to fund new fire stations, purchase new equipment and make improvements to existing stations. Commissioners were hesitant to schedule the hearing. County Commissioner Doug Gilpin said he would support ending the fee as long as we are covered and are very sure that were covered. The public hearing will be scheduled when the board meets in March. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, in the government offices in Bushnell.

BOBREICHMAN Editor The Sumter County Sheriffs Office, in partnership with The Village Fire Rescue and Sumter County Fire Rescue will be sponsoring Operation Medicine Cabinet. This will give Sumter County residents a chance to dispose of unused or expired prescriptions. The event will be held on Saturday, March 3, at The Villages Sweetbay Supermarket at 820 Old Camp Rd, The Villages, and also at The Sumter County Sheriffs Office, 1010 N. Main St., Bushnell. Deputies and firefighters will be on hand to retrieve the discarded medicines from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Proper disposal prevents the medicine from being stolen or abused. Thrown into the garbage, pharmaceuticals can wind up leeching into the environment. lushed down a toilet the medicines can contaminate groundwater supply. Disposing of unused or expired medicine will also keep children and grandchildren from getting into the prescriptions. Operation Medicine Cabinet provides a safe way of destroying pharmaceuticals through incineration, to avoid polluting the environment. Help us keep medications from getting into the wrong hands or our water supply. Operation Medicine Cabinet Sumter County introduces new fire trucks into service Sumter County Fire and EMS introduced a new Freightliner Fire Engine into service at Station 31 Downtown Wildwood on Tuesday, Feb. 21. Engine 31 was put into service following a long-held fire service tradition that dates back to the days of horse-drawn fire apparatus. The Housing Ceremony welcomed the new apparatus to the community and the fire station. Frank Ennist, Deputy Chief of Operations, narrated each step of the ceremony, first symbolically transferring the water from the older vehicle to the new truck. During the next segment of the ceremony the firefighters transferred their equipment to the new truck. County Commissioners Don Burgess, Garry Breeden, Doug Gilpin and Randy Mask participated in the washing of the wheels, a tradition signaling a clean and well-maintained vehicle and firefighters at the ready. During the final part of the ceremony firefighters and dignitaries symbolically pushed the new engine into its new home. Engine 31 was joined the following day by its twin, Engine 21 housed at station 21 in Lake Panasoffkee. Both vehicles were designed with ergonomics and safety in mind; newly implemented on both vehicles are hydraulic lifts for the ladders and large suction hoses that are mounted lower on the truck which allow for safer and more rapid access during emergencies. Both are replacement vehicles purchased through a competitive bid process. EMS introduced a new Freightliner fire engine into service at Station 31 Downtown Wildwood on Tuesday, Feb. 21.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH1, 2012 Some kudos for the county administrator County Administrator Bradley Arnold deserves some credit for his reluctance to continue on with the way the county has been expending funds to provide local mental health care. The issue came to light last year during budget workshops when LifeStream Behavioral Center submitted its typical budget request to the county seeking $90,000 in county matching funds to provide the countys required financial contribution for providing mental health care. Arnold wasnt satisfied with the contractual agreement that the county had for providing the 25 percent matching funds for mental health services as required by the state. Arnolds concern wasnt with LifeStream, it was with the lack of a formula for determining what the local match should be. In order to get better clarification, Arnold asked the board to seek an opinion from the State Attorney Generals Office about just what type of contract should exist between the county and its mental health provider. That query has resulted in the county attempting to change its agreement so that it actually has an agreement with the state Department of Children and Families (DCF) rather than with LifeStream. DCF is the contractual agent that the county should be dealing with and LifeStream is the agency that DCF contracts with to provide mental health care services in Sumter County and in Lake County, according to the State Attorney Generals opinion. But coming to an agreement hasnt been easy. Arnold has told county commissioners that a newly forged agreement needs to be in place by July 1, 2012, the beginning of the contractual year. Arnold said he has been working with representatives of DCF to create an agreement that channels the countys payment to DCF rather than directly to LifeStream. Neither Arnold nor the County Commission seems to have any qualms with the service LifeStream provides, this issue seems to purely focus on the methodology of paying out the funds and figuring out an appropriate formula for funding. Apparently, Arnolds query has also attracted the attention of other counties in the state who are also interested in developing similar agreements with DCF. LifeStream cant be blamed for creating this problem either. Its an agreement that has been ongoing in its existing form for years. No one has ever really looked at it before and challenged it the way Arnold has. Its good work on his part. Dear Friends,We are currently updating our mailing list.

To Whom Much is GivenObama said; To whom much is given, much will be required in essence pointing his finger at the wealthy. However on analysis, just to whom has much been given? For the most part, the wealthy have earned their money; it wasnt given to them! It is those who pay no Federal income tax that Much Has Been Given! Given in the form of untold social programs and tax returns they did not earn from a system that they did not pay into, not to mention the military, roads and postal service that they enjoy but contribute zero Federal Income Tax to support. You know for the General Welfare! They pay; zip, zero, nada but they get all the Welfare! I would suggest, it is those who pay zip, zero, nada, that truly, Much Has Been Given Much Should Be Required! Phil LongoDefense cuts endanger our national securityThe 2013 Defense Department budget cuts military spending by $487 billion over 10 years, which translates into eliminating six Air Force fighter squadrons, cutting 16 ships from the Navy, and reducing the Army and Marine Corps by 80,000 to 100,000 troops over five years. Our thinking is that future wars will be fought with more high technology weapons and fewer troops. The problem is we could lose highly qualified military personnel because of the cutbacks. The end result could mean we will have a plethora of high technology weapon systems available, but lack the quantity and quality of non-commissioned and commissioned military leaders to employ the equipment. Another $600 billion in defense cuts could be enacted if Congress does not act to change current laws. Unfortunately, our military strategy might be faulty. Lets look at a few countries who could be potential adversaries. China has a multi-million man army and a large air force. It is upgrading its missile systems and developing anti-ship missiles that could threaten U.S. naval forces. It is in the process of deploying two aircraft carriers and building up its submarine fleet. China seeks to dominate Southeast Asia and wants to annex Taiwan. It is a close ally of North Korea. North Korea has a million man army and continues to expand its missile capabilities. It poses a threat to South Korea, and maintains a goal of uniting Korea under its domain. It has nuclear weapons and continues to sell nuclear and missile technology to a number of countries, including Iran. Iran threatens the Middle East region with an aggressive attitude and the potential development of nuclear weapons. It has missile systems capable of hitting targets in other Arab countries, Israel and Western Europe. Iran has acquired some submarines and is building up its navy. It has a close relationship with Venezuela and might want to establish a naval base in that country. Venezuela threatens South American and Central American countries. President Chavez is friendly with Castro of Cuba, and has developed a military relationship with Russia. He has purchased a significant quantity of arms from Russia and has allowed Russian warships to use Venezuelan port facilities. Russia is a Communist country that could still threaten world peace. It supports Irans nuclear program, and it is upgrading its land military forces with the latest weaponry and is refurbishing its navy. Another concern for the U.S. is the potential rise of radical Islamists in a number of countries in North Africa and the Middle East. As the totalitarian governments in the region fail, they could be replaced with Islamic forces who might implement Sharia law and who could be antagonistic and possibly adversarial to the U.S. The weakening of the U.S. military with the proposed budget cuts could embolden potential adversaries to expand militarily in their respective regions. We need to maintain a strong military posture to protect our national security and promote peace in the world by deterring potential adversaries from launching military adventures. Donald A. Moskowitz Former PO2 and LT, U.S. Navy Londonderry, NH Its a cash mob headed toward Wildwood market Flash mobs are all the rage these days, as groups of people gather at a specified location and take part in some type of act that may seem pointless or unusual, before dispersing. The group may gather for anything from a pillow fight to participating in a surprise marriage proposal and the groups of people, mostly strangers to one another, are organized through social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Saturday, March 17, theres a flash mob being planned for Wildwood, but rather than entertainment, the crowd is asked to be a cash mob, coming out to support the Wildwood Growers Market and local business. Each participant is asked to spend $20 at the market. Supporting local businesses is more important now than ever and this is just one way we can lend a helping hand, said Sumter County Extension Agent Susan Kelly. She said she heard about the idea at the Office of Sustainability in Gainesville and thought, What a great idea. It was about three weeks ago and she contacted the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce and market manager Jerry Townsend and both were on board with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences immediately. Typically, there are 30 vendors at the market, selling everything from fresh fruits, produce and citrus to plants and handmade craft items, such as aprons and jewelry. Kelly said theyre even hoping to get a large cash mob group out of Orlando involved. People are excited about it its something new, she said. According to Townsend, this group is expected to spend cold, hard cash to support local businesses, rather than dancing or pillow fighting. The hope is to continue spreading the cash, right on to local restaurants through a post-mob celebration. Were supporting local farmers and local businesses the money stays in the local community, said Chamber director Andy Cripps. Theyve been working with local restaurants to get discounts on lunch or brunch, for mob members who check in at the Chamber booth. Townsend notes that rules are simple: number one, spend $20; number two, meet three people you didnt know before you arrived and rule number three, have fun. The market opens at 9 a.m. with cash mob members asked to arrive by 10 a.m. and check in at the Chamber booth to get directions on post mob activities.

Contestants are (left to right): Lexi Munz, Breanne Noell, Kristin Ray, Brittany Fussell, Kaylin Paul Shelby Johnson. Both the Miss Teen Sumter and Miss Sumter County pageants are slated for that evening. It was an opportunity for dozens of Sumter County youngsters to have thousands of dollars worth of dental work performed free of charge. The 2012 Give Kids a Smile program at Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provided 46 youngsters with the opportunity to have a variety of dental work done that ranged from teeth cleanings to tooth extractions, from x-rays to fluoride treatment. Working throughout the day, with six dentists, six or seven dental hygienists and dozens of other volunteers, the dental center provided more than $17,000 of free dental services to youngsters, according to Zelda Novak, practice administrator. It was a great event, she said. It is the third year the center has participated in the free program sponsored by the American Dental Association, she said. This year, youngster participation almost doubled last year. The event is aimed at helping provide dental care access to the underprivileged. In order to participate, eligible families must be at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. The free dental work was available to children from 4 to 13 years old. Teamwork in the office as Chastity Howard and Dr. James McAnly work on a patient. Dr. Ahmed works on a patient during the event.

PAGE10SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH1, 2012 Weekly fishing report and news from Tracys Point Fishing Lodge for week ending Jan. 22Report by Donna and Steve LindAnglers on Lake Panasoffkee 292 Anglers Bass Fishing 241 Bass caught 306 Bass Released 289 Pan Fish caught 268Gary Kubal, known as QBall. just returned from Norway with Bobby Bare where they participated in an international music contest in which they ended up winners. Interesting facts about this avid fisherman: He has been the drummer for Bobby Bare for 30 years. He was with Bobby when Bobby was at the top of his game (not that he still isnt at 74 years old. In addition to being the drummer, Q-Ball handles all of the administrative matters for Mr. Bare including booking new gigs, working with other bands such as Merle Haggard, Mel Tillis (to mention a few) to establish new gigs, travel itinerary, etc. Both Bare and Q-Ball have been fantastic customers of ours for 9 years Their next stop is Canada for an upcoming concert. We look forward to having them back next year! Don Cahoon from Michigan is also another regular customer here at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Don is a real good fisherman and caught a nice 10 pound lunker last week with a white fluke fishing mid lake. In addition one of our guests, Rob Woodcock caught a 3-pounder right off of the Tracys Point Pavillon on Thursday of last week. Lamar Miller caught two nice fish using a watermelon seed worm. As for this weeks fishing report, the bass have obviously been biting well on both shiners as well as artificial baits such as plastics, ratl traps and swim baits. While quite a number of small bass have been caught, as you can see from this weeks photos, weve had some lunkers. I dont expect the bass fishing to slow down anytime soon. Many visitors are asking when the crappie (specks) will be turning on. My answer is soon I anticipate they will start bedding within the next several weeks. I thought I might provide you with a few tips for catching specks in anticipation of them turning on soon: Crappie Fishing Tips Dont set the hook too hard. Crappie have thin mouths and its easy to pull the hook right through them. Use light line and a light rod so you can properly fight the fish without pulling out the hook. Go tiny! Crappie have small mouths, so you need to use small lures and hooks. Consider chumming. This crappie fishing secret will bring those crappie to the surface in a heartbeat and they will take your hook a lot easier. Make sure it is legal for your area, but if it is then you definitely want to give it a shot.How to Catch Crappie?Those who want to learn how to catch crappie will not have a lot of complex learning to do. These are active fish and they have such a varied diet that they are easy to work with. The best time for catching crappie is in the spring. They move shallow to spawn and readily bite small minnow imitations. The most popular crappie rig is a small grub or tube jig below a slip bobber. This allows the bait to be vertically jigged while away from the boat or shore. On Lake Panasoffkee they also like live minnows in fact it is my opinion that your chances are better with live bait. Keep in mind that a crappies eyes look up, so you better off setting the jig to be a little higher than the fish instead of being right on the bottom. For crappie fishing during the summer time, it is best to fish in shaded areas around deeper water. Good luck and good fishin! Some things fishy Gary Kubal with a nice catch. Don Cahoon is shown with a nice 10 pound lunker caught last week with a white fluke fishing mid lake. Rob Woodcock caught this 3 pounder right off of the Tracys Point Pavillon on Thursday of last week. Lamar Miller, right off of Tracys Point,caught both of these nice fish using a watermelon seed worm.

Graham held Weeki Wachee High to two hits, struck out seven and the South Sumter High team beat the Hernando County team 10-0 in a Class 4ADistrict 6 game. South Sumter is now 2-0 in district play and 3-1 overall. Graham is now 2-0. I felt like my fastball was on point and I was comfortable with my curveball, Graham said. I feel like we have a lot of talent on this team and we could become unbeatable. The Raiders can do some hitting as well. They had 11 hits and took advantage of four Weeki Wachee errors. Weeki Wachee starting pitcher Dustin Bauer was saddled with the loss. South Sumter looked like it would blow its opponent away at Raiders field. Kyle Vaught led off with a double and scored on Bo Farmers single. Jared Lozano singled and Farmer and Lozano scored when Dalton Moss singled and there was an outfield error. The score was 4-0 after the first inning. In the second, Cameron Hayes singled, reached second on a wild pitch and scored on a passed ball. The Raiders made this a mercy rule game with five runs in the sixth inning. Garett McMullen singled, stole second and scored on a throwing error. Zack Sullivan reached on an outfield error and took third on a wild pitch. Vaught walked and moved up on two wild pitches. Farmer walked. Vaught and Farmer both scored when Lozano hit a double deep to left. Clay Simmons singled to score Lozano and end the game. Winning 10-0 tends to make coaches happy. I felt good, said South Sumter coach Fred Popp. Winning a district game is always great. Call Graham did really well. I always expect us to do well. I put a lot of expectations on us.

Temple and Cat paired up to share with the children as part of the schools annual Dr. Seuss birthday celebration. The event is one of several curriculums to encourage children to read. The children are (at left, front to back) Doby Gibson, Landon Northup, Levi Barnes, Haley Spencer, Cheyenne Haire; (at right, front to back) Ethan Parks, Margarita Bolonas, Trenton Guess. Seuss on the loose BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesCat settled in with children from Bushnell Elementary School, just before going on stage for the reading of The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss. Cat is shown here with Tyler Weber, Avery Youngblood and Kierstyn Newell. Yes! Yes! At BES, could you guess? Yes! Yes! Hes on the loose, that man we know, that Dr. Seuss! Rhyming verse and equation, sparking each imagination Silly cat and counted fish, hatching egg and balanced dish, Why fun is found in every book! See there, just look! Its green eggs and ham they cook!And on it goes as a week of rhyme and imagination fill the classrooms at Bushnell Elementary School just one of several campuses across the nation to take part in the annual birthday celebration of the late Dr. Seuss. While the birthday celebration offers plenty of fun and Dr. Seuss, an author and artist, is more than worthy of the honor, the real idea behind the activities is to promote reading and build literacy. The school has been taking part in the literacy program for the last 20 years under the leadership of teacher Kathy Hairston. They started the week with a reading of The Cat in the Hat, in the lunchroom. Cat even managed to show up and act out the book, alongside Principal John Temple, who did the reading. Hairston notes its the love of reading that children acquire from fun activities that are centered on the stories in the books. We still try to inspire students to become the best they can be with activities that generate a love for reading that enables them to become good readers and great students, she said. Seuss books have characters the children get excited about, according to Temple. The students love Dr. Seuss books, he said. Theyre just fun reads. Temple cited the rhyming verse in Seuss books and said its very helpful in teaching them to read and the stories themselves are fun and imaginative. At this age, its critical to encourage that imagination. He said the children in upper classes will include some Seuss in the week, but the real drive is for the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students. Theyll share books in class this week, participate in a crazy sock day on Wednesday and a special feast on Friday. were going to end the week with green eggs and ham, said Temple. Seuss was born March 2, 1904 in Springfield, Mass. and has a collection of books to his credit, including And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, Horton Hatches the Egg, The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Yertle the Turtle, Green Eggs and Ham and Oh, the Places Youll Go!

PAGE14SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH1, 2012 Sumter calendar Solution to puzzle on page 15 Critter chatter Beware of household toxins We do our best to keep our pets healthy and safe. Yet danger lurks around our home with common household items that are poisonous to our pets. The ASPCA Poison Control Hotline alone received more than 165,000 calls last year about pets that ingested a harmful substance. Thousands more have called veterinarians and local emergency veterinarian clinics for the same reasons. It is important to know what items present a danger to our pets so that we can prevent a harmful or worse, fatal situation. Topping the list of harmful ingested substances was prescription medications. Any pill that may drop on the floor can be quickly eaten by a chow hound or curious kitty. The ASPCA suggests you take your medications in a place safely away from your pets. Did you know that some over the counter human medications can kill your pet? Ibuprofen and acetaminophen are deadly to a dog or cat. Never give any medication without checking with your veterinarian first. Some human foods can cause medical emergencies for your pet. Too much chocolate can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and seizures. The sugar substitute, Xylitol, used in some foods and gum, can cause liver failure and seizures. Grapes and raisins can cause medical emergencies too. Household, lawn or pet insecticides should be used with great care. Always read the directions carefully. Lawn and garden items, as well as fertilizers can also cause harm. Keep any unused products well out of the reach of nosey pets. Numerous plants are toxic to pets, so it is wise to familiarize yourself with the various plants that will cause harm to dogs, cats, and horses too. Mouse or rat baits can be very inviting to your pet. Rodenticides can cause internal bleeding, kidney failure, and seizures. The number of pets poisoned by automotive products has declined due to more pets being inside family members. However, hazards are numerous in garages where paints, brake fluid, antifreeze and other items are stored. When medications are prescribed by your veterinarian, follow prescribed dosages, and call your veterinarian if your pet ingests more than the prescribed dosage. Never mix medications without checking with your veterinarian. Knowledge and prevention will hopefully keep our pets safe. However, even with the utmost care, accidents can happen. Be prepared. If your veterinarians office is closed, always have the phone number of the closest emergency veterinarian clinic handy. Your fast actions can mean the difference between life and death for your furry family member. This is JJ Buster. JJ is a rough coat Jack Russell Terrier. He loves adventure, and would do best in an active family. He is neutered, current on his vaccines, and crate trained. An avid learner JJ is just looking for a fun-loving family to call his own.

The Friends Members Only Preview Sale will be on the 7th from noon until 6 p.m. This will be the only book sale this year at the Rec. Center due to scheduling conflicts in November. So come out early and help us make this a great book sale so we can fund library programs all year. If you would be able to volunteer during the book sale or to set up or clean up, please call Patricia at 793-2007. We will also be collecting donations for our annual gift to Lake Panasoffkee Elementary School. Our goal is to provide their media center with $500 to supplement their budget for library materials. Please give as generously as you can so we can encourage a love of reading in our youth.Volunteer AppreciationThe Friends would like to express our gratitude to the numerous volunteers who have helped make our events a success. Halloween in the Park, the Christmas Parade and Party, Book Sales and other events require many hours of making telephone calls, setting up, manning games, sorting books for the book sale, assisting with greetings, decorating, sorting prizes, providing refreshments among others. We couldnt have done it without the support of our volunteers. Thank you all!Halloween in the Park SponsorsIn addition to the hours of volunteer help, events also need funding to purchase supplies, prizes and other necessities. For Halloween in the Park, our longest running and best attended event, these monetary needs have historically been more than our book sale fundraising could meet. Generous sponsors have stepped up to help us continue to provide the community with this safe Halloween festivity. We would like to thank the following people and businesses who answered the plea for help: Bobbie Beresovoy Andrew I. Cobo, DMD, PA Doris Day, Markland Chiropractic Clinic Inc. Pana Vista Lodge, Inc. Purcell Funeral Home Inc. SECO VFW Auxiliary Post 10087New Board MembersDuring the December Annual Meeting, Friends members voted in the following Officers: Patricia Tillis, President Carol Dixon, Vice President Marty Money, Secretary Denise Atherton, Treasurer Wendel Martinkovic, Director Evelyn Vilet, Director Irene Beissel, Director Bruce Wolfe, Director Martha Vickers, Director Alternate Directors: Penny Rosenburg and Barbara Word. Pennys Worth As we voted in a new president we were saddened to say goodbye to Penny Rosenburg who has served as president for many years. Her hard work and numerous hours of time has been the Gold Standard for the rest of us to aspire to. During our February Board Meeting the Friends presented Penny with an engraved photo box which stated: With heartfelt appreciation, the Friends of the Panasoffkee Community Library recognize our leader and friend, Penny Rosenburg, for many years of dedicated service. No mere token of thanks could ever come close to expressing how much Penny has meant to the Friends group as an organization and as a group of friends. Although she will be available for consultation and active as an alternate director, we will miss her almost daily leadership. We wish her all the best in her retirement.
