However, patrols of the cemetery, near Bushnell, have been increased by local law enforcement. Additionally, cemetery personnel diligently continue to inspect the cemetery every morning. The gravesites that were disturbed show no signs of tampering, said Kurt Rotar, cemetery director. We immediately repaired the sites that were vandalized the same day. But news of the vandalism brought concerns from a substantial number of families calling the cemetery to find out if graves of their loved ones had been disturbed. A total of 13 gravesites had either been pushed over or pulled out of the ground sometime during March 3 and March 4. All of the disturbed headstones were engraved with the Star of David, symbolic of Law enforcement authorities are continuing to investigate a Monday morning collision between a CSX train and a vehicle south of Bushnell that claimed the life of a Sumter sheriffs deputy. Kimberli Smothers, 41, Bushnell, died when the 2006 Ford Expedition she was driving was struck by a northbound train near St. Catherine, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. Smothers vehicle was at the railroad crossing on County Road 720 about 8:30 a.m. when the collision happened, Hofecker said. The crossing is a dirt road without crossing gates or flashing lights. Only warning signs alert to train traffic. Sheriffs Deputy James Smothers was initially responding to the wreck but another deputy beat him to the call, Hofecker said. When the deputy realized Smothers wife was the victim, Smothers was called back to the sheriffs office before he arrived at the scene. He was then informed of his wifes death by fellow officers. Mrs. Smothers was pronounced dead at the site, Hofecker said. The vehicle was destroyed.

Next week, Wildwood city commissioners will begin the process of weeding through a select group of four candidates interested in filling the slot of Wildwood city manager. The position became available last year when then City Manager Robert Smith accepted a position as town manager for Windermere, in Orange County. Since Smiths departure, City Clerk Joseph Jacobs has been acting as interim city manager. Initially, 24 applicants sought the Wildwood position. The job pays between $80,000 and $90,000 a year. After reviewing the candidates, the list has been whittled down to the final four. City officials are scheduled to interview the job candidates starting on Monday, March 19, and continuing through Wednesday, March 21. The commissioners have a list of questions they will be asking the candidates, said Deanna Cox, Wildwood human resources director. The four candidates are: Bill Ed Cannon currently city manager Covington, Va. Stephen J. Cottrell currently unemployed, most recently the city manager for Windsor, Vt. Andrew T. DeCandis senior planner for Orange County Public School System. Richard Gestrich former city manager of Oviedo. Cox said she estimates a new city manager will be in place by May 1, if not sooner. City commissioners will go through a list of questions with each candidate, Cox said. Commissioners will be asking a total of between 25 to 30 questions. Hopefully they will pull out the information they are looking for (in a new city manager), she said. List shortens for city manager slot Theres still plenty of time to visit the annual Sumter County Fair. The fair continues through Saturday, March 17, at the Sumter County Fairgrounds, north of Webster, off State Road 471.

P AGE 2S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 15, 2012 the Jewish faith. Weve had numerous calls from family members wanting to verify that it wasnt their loved ones grave, Rotar said. We assured them that all loved ones of the graves that were disturbed were contacted. Both the Anti-Defamation League and the Sumter County Sheriffs Office have labeled the vandalism act as an antiSemitic hate crime. A reward leading to an arrest may be available by calling Crimeline at 1-800-423TIPS. In the meantime, the offense remains difficult to comprehend. Here at the cemetery, we just dont understand how anyone could single out one person or one group when the thing that ties them together is that they served in uniform under one flag, Rotar said. The national cemetery, owned by the Department of Veteran Affairs, has about 118,000 grave sites and includes 527 acres. Its the first type of any type of incident like this since the cemetery opened in 1988, Rotar said. Media coverage of the vandalism has generated some leads, said sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. Were following up on them and were actively working the case. Well do everything possible to bring the perpetrators to justice. The train was traveling between 46 to 49 mph when the collision occurred, he said. The crash doesnt appear to be the result of anything that the train did. Mrs. Smothers was alone in the vehicle. Deputy Smothers has worked for the department for more than 20 years. He is a highly decorated veteran deputy and were giving him as much time as he wants to deal with this, Hofecker said.

Heavy rain is believed to be a key factor in a weekend crash on Interstate 75 that sent seven people to area hospitals and involved 27 vehicles. No one was seriously injured in the collisions and those with minor injuries were treated at Leesburg Regional Medical Center and the Villages Regional Hospital, according to Florida Highway Patrol reports. The accident happened about 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 11, when a series of crashes started in the northbound lanes of the interstate between the Bushnell and Lake Panasoffkee exits, according to the report. Because of the crashes, the northbound lanes were closed for about two hours until wreckage could be cleared from the highway, according to FHP Troopers responding to the site identified a total of 11different collisions involving the 27 vehicles. Wet roads and rain appear to have played a role in the crashes and as such drivers are reminded and urged to use caution on the highways by reducing speed, increasing following distance, using wipers and headlights, and replacing worn tires, said FHP spokesman Sgt. Steve Gaskins.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 15, 2012 Vandalism in cemetery is a disgrace W hether they were merely insensitive kids playing a prank or thwarted adults making a statement, the recent vandalism of 14 Jewish gravestones at Florida National Cemetery is a disgrace. The cemetery is the burial grounds for military veterans who served this country. The graves belong to men and women who fought in wars to protect America and its freedom; not only did the veterans fight in wars, many of those buried at the cemetery died fighting for that cause. Men, women, blacks, whites, Catholics, Jews they all fought for a reason, and we are all the richer for their efforts. The desecration of the Jewish gravestones isnt just a simple act of vandalism. It is a statement of hatred. It is a pathetic example that prejudice continues to exist. Ironically, the very people responsible for this disgraceful act actually owe a tremendous debt to the veterans whose graves they disturbed and disgraced. Our hope is that they are brought to justice quickly and that law enforcement officers will be successful in finding them and apprehending them. Because the vandalism has been classified by law enforcement authorities as a hate crime, the penalties are harsher and justifiably so. Independents may have huge impact If you are an Independent voter, affiliated with neither the Republican nor Democratic party, you and your vote will be wooed in the months leading up to the November general election. As a voting group Independents may have a huge impact on whether a Democrat or a Republican is elected to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next two years. Still, that may result in no change in the makeup of congress! Your participation in the general election may not be enough to bring about any change. As an Independent you probably do not participate in the primary elections thinking that these are only party functions. But this is where the incumbents are most vulnerable! The winners of these primary elections have a 50-50 chance of election in November. If you think your representative should be replaced, your best chance to make this happen is to vote in the primary of his/her party and vote for a challenger. Even democrats and republicans can cross party lines and vote in the other primary. We simply must cooperate with each other to bring about change that matters. Our shared objective should be the defeat of undesired incumbents. Glen Terrell Arlington, TexasWebster In Bloom WOW! It is our first anniversary! One year ago March, Webster in Bloom started as a grass roots organization with the purpose of beautifying our community. We have come a long way thanks to the wonderful volunteers that have made this project a continuing success. With just four volunteers initially, we have grown and grown just like the wonderful gardens that we have planted. And we can always use more volunteers. Just walk around the community buildings and streets in Webster. See how Webster in Bloom has made a difference. Some of the projects that are blooming include: Community Hall City Hall Police Station Post Office Welcome to Webster signs Medians between East Central and NE First Avenue Community Vegetable Garden Harris Park, etc. Businesses seem much brighter by displaying their flowering plants in painted molasses pots. A huge thank you go to the local nurseries, farmers and businesses that have been instrumental in their encouragement and helping to provide the materials necessary for our success. One new highlight for this year will be the recognition of Garden of the Month both residentially and commercially. This is not a contest but an opportunity to recognize those who have made an effort to beautify their properties. We need your help. If you have a friend or neighbor that has done a great job with their landscape let us know. This will be the same for commercial properties. We will place a small sign to recognize their achievements. This recognition will begin in May. Get excited. Here come the summer flowers! If you would like to volunteer or get some additional information, please contact Michael Harris at 352793-7541. He will also take nominations for the Garden of the Month project. Michael Harris Webster In BloomFHP cracks down on impaired driving The Florida Highway Patrol will be on the lookout for impaired drivers during the week ending on St. Patricks Day, March 17. FHPs effort is part of a national effort called Drive Sober of Get Pulled Over, and the Patrol will address impaired driving, failure to buckle up, speeding and reckless driving. The Florida Highway Patrol continues to make DUI (Driving Under the Influence) enforcement a priority, said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton. We have a zero tolerance for impaired driving. Having a designated driver and planning ahead will make your trip safer. In 2010, there were nearly 18,000 alcohol-related crashes on Floridas roadways. Nearly 800 people died and more than 12,000 suffered injuries because of those crashes. FHP encourages all residents of the state to drive carefully, and together we will make a difference. The Patrol offers these tips to make your St. Patricks Day and the week leading up to the holiday safer: Plan ahead. Use a designated driver. Dial *FHP (*347) on your cell phone to report an impaired driver. If you are impaired, us a taxi or call a friend or a family member to get you home safely. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement.

A week or so ago on a Sunday afternoon, two women I dont know knocked on my door. They said they knew me, or at least knew me through my writing and somehow thought I could help them find their friend Dennis. They knew enough about me to deduce that I owned my own home and searched the county property appraisers website to find my address so they could come and see me in person because they were that desperate to find their friend who was missing. Since they only looked partially crazy, and they assured me that they dont normally stalk people I was their first I let them in my house. Their friend Dennis was missing and they were frantic to find him. They wouldve done anything to find someone to help them. Then they described him: Hes a bit scary, like an alligator.

The ladies used floral dcor inside the bottle and created a hanging flower basket. Retired teacher Karen Cloud shared one of her trash to treasure secrets, teaching to make bows from wrapping paper. Shown (cloc kwise from left, facing the camera ) are: Joyce OKeefe, Donna East and Caren Kurtiss and Cloud, Amy Loomis, Madeline Schneider and Roberta Rozansky. It doesnt matter what your interest, it seems that Dade Park event coordinators are working to put it on the agenda. From a pioneer Christmas with apple cider over the fire, to haunted hayrides, basket making, bird programs and the high-tech geo-caching, theres been plenty of fun on the schedule. This month, the fun has included a moonlight walk and a mid-week Trash to Treasures event. The night walk drew 34 people and they were able to hear, see or identify a collection of insect, bird and wildlife. Coordinator Kristen Wood is already putting together another walk, set for April. Each walk is unique, even if they travel the same course and the participants are the same. The day-long treasures experience offered visitors nearly a dozen options in art lessons taking trash items such as plastic grocery bags, soda bottles and paper scraps and turning them into art treasures. Karen Cloud taught students how to turn wrapping paper scraps into birthday bows, while Judie Bradley gave lessons in weaving plastic bags into rugs and placemats. Sherrie Braddy used material scraps to make rag rugs, Brenda Adams used paper scraps to make necklace beads and Diane Rigsby and her daughter Elizabeth turned scraps into quilling designs. Other teachers were Patti Fox on making boxes from Christmas cards, Mary Kavanaugh on butterflies. Muguette Moulin was also on hand to help. This round, students were Drenda Snare, Teri Sutton, Sharon and Bruce Jamison, Amy Loomis, Gloria Sairls and Madeline Schneider, Joyce OKeefe, Donna East and Caren Kurtiss. This past Wednesday, there was a boondoggle class weaving with palm fronds.

he might bite you. With a loud and thunderous voice, people often think hes mean. He rushes into a room like Superman. Hes a bulldozer and socially awkward. He doesnt sound lovable and cuddly, but these women seemed to love him. Tears welled in their eyes as they continued to tell me about him. Before Dennis disappeared he volunteered at the same local outreach ministry where the women volunteer. He was there every single day the ministry was open, arriving a half-hour early and staying until they made him go home except, he didnt have a home, at least not one with traditional walls and such. He lived in a structure that has a tree growing in the middle of it, and he let anyone who needed a home stay there, too. He has nothing but shares everything. At the ministry, if you asked Dennis to clear out one end of the donations room, he would, the women said, although you might find everything from that end in piles at the other end. He took it upon himself to make sure all the trash cans were clean. No dirty trash cans on Dennis watch, no sir. The women, no longer even partially crazy, continued to tell me about Dennis and about how it wasnt like him to go missing other than after an occasional night of too much drinking. Then one of the women said, Initially, when you hear about or see Dennis situation, your heart might yearn to help fix such a man, but quite to the contrary, Dennis doesnt need to be fixed. Sometimes Dennis will find something a ceramic angel, a certain snack he knows you like and hold it out to you and say, Here, you need this. The woman standing in my entryway, with the passionate desperation that can only be fueled by love said, Dennis possesses the one thing the rest of us can only hope for a heart of love for others. His words are true: Here, you need this. Then she said his friend, Hobo Joe, had recently died in a tragic fire and Dennis somehow doesnt have the skills or the capacity or the language necessary to process his feelings. That maybe thats why their developmentally disabled friend was missing. Maybe he grabbed his backpack and just took off, trying to escape his confusing feelings. (Really, dont we all do that one way or another?) Before the women left my house they said, He is our Dennis and we love him we need him. The next day I worked on the story for the newspaper and by the end of the week, mostly thanks to the sheriffs office, Dennis was found safe and sound helping at an outreach ministry at a church in Tallahassee, hundreds of miles away. But the story doesnt end here. In talking with the pastor at the church in Tallahassee how he got that far, the pastor didnt know. But she did know that he had been their Dennis years before. He would show up at their mission outreach every day, all gruff and thunderous and bulldozer-like, and his awkward, sometimes annoying love transformed them. When he disappeared one day several years ago, they, too, filed a missing persons report and worried and prayed and cried until they learned of his whereabouts. When I told my boss the whole story she said, I want to be that loved! And you know what? We are that loved. Were all a Dennis, broken and imperfect, and Jesus came searching for us all the way to the Cross.

With the nicer weather, pets are out more often enjoying the fresh new scents of spring. Wildlife is also stirring, and our pets are more apt to come in contact with the local wildlife critters. It is important to be aware of the health risks that are prevalent this time of year. Not only are our domestic animals at risk of contracting rabies, but other deadly viruses flourish this time of year. Parvo and distemper are two very common viruses that are highly contagious and almost always fatal to pets that are not vaccinated. To assure your furry friend stays healthy, it is important to keep your pets vaccinations up to date. Florida State law requires that domestic animals have a current rabies vaccination by a licensed veterinarian. Prevention is easy and now affordable when you bring your pet to the upcoming Low Cost Pet Vaccination Clinic. The benefit to pet parents is a huge savings. The benefit for your pet is good health. Our furry family members depend on us to care for them. Their health and well being is our responsibility. At the affordable prices offered at the Low Cost Pet Vaccination Clinic, no dog or cat should have to suffer from preventable diseases.

Solution to puzzle on page 9 Wildwood Wildcats on a mission The Wildwood Wildcats are on a mission this year, moving into early March with a 6 and 0 record, top pitching and hard hitting under the leadership of coaches Adam Cardona and Kevin Lidell. While the record slowed a little during the second week of the month moving Wildwood to 7-2, the team is still pushing for the district championship and a chance to move up in play. The Cats held a district win against Peniel Baptist, with Garrett Hurst pitching a no-hitter that Friday night and striking out 10 batters. Wildwood took that victory 6-0. The night also led to some great hits by Shawn Aten who was 3 for 3, Brady Adams, Drew Terry, Jalen Gooden, Sean Hensley and Hurst. Last week, the Cats took two losses for the record change, but came back to beat St. Johns on Monday night, 11-4. We can still get the number one seat, said Cardona of the championship. He notes ne of their gains as having only high school players on the varsity team this year. As for their strengths, Cardona notes theyve got some top pitching with Shawn Aten and Garrett Hurst. Every time they take the mound he said of their abilities to pitch well and stay energized. While it does limit the opportunities for other players to pitch, Youre never going to complain, he said of having top pitchers on the mound. With hitting as another strength, Cardona said, Our bats have definitely woken up this year. Even when theyre not hitting the way they would like, he said theyre still hitting right where they should and hitting hard. Wildwood has another 11 games and the team goal is to hopefully get down to St. Lucie in the playoffs, Cardona said. At press time on Tuesday afternoon, Wildwood had a game against Lake Weir that night and another slated for Monday, March 19 against Mt. Dora Bible. Cardona urges the public to Come on out and support the Cats. The Wildwood Wildcats varsity team players are: seniors Dale Gifford, 2; Drew Terru, 5; Shawn Aten, 7; Garrett Hurst, 11; Sean Hensley, 12; Jake Phillips, 14.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 15, 2012, P AGE 13 Weekly fishing report and news from Tracys Point Fishing Lodge For week ending March 11 Report by Donna and Steve Lind Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 329 Anglers Bass Fishing 303 Bass caught 342 Bass Released 330 Pan Fish caught You never know what youre gonna get at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge. Doug Shepherd was bass fishing on Wednesday and thought for sure that he had the lunker of a lifetime on his line. When he finally got his catch to the boat it turned out to be a small gator. Doug immediately released his catch back to his home beautiful Lake Panasoffkee. Moving from bass fishing to shell crackers, its getting close for us at Tracys Point to switch out our wild shiner tanks over to cricket boxes in preparation of Shellcracker season. I thought it would be helpful to provide some information on Shellcracker (Redear) fishing as follows:Shellcracker, Bully of the shallows As the winter comes to a close and the days start getting longer, most anglers start getting the itch for the coming fishing season. Tackle boxes are organized and boats are tuned up. Old brittle line is replaced with new. In the shallows there is a small but robust fish starting to move and become active. Seeking out shallow flats that warm the earliest and taking refuge and becoming nothing more than a big bully! In the south, shellcracker fishing is common among pan fisherman. Pound for pound, there is not another fish that out pulls these little Bullies. By the end of March, depending on water temperatures and water levels, Redears (Shellcracker) start migrating to the shallows in preparation for the spawn. Over the years I have made a habit of keeping accurate records. I record weather patterns, water levels, lures used, wind directions, barometric pressure readings, places fished, water temperatures, air temperatures and the list goes on. Out of all these that I have mentioned, I would have to place water temperature and water levels to be the most important. The ideal water temperature for shellcracker during the spawn in my opinion is 62-67 degrees. For some reason, shellcracker prefer a little cooler temperature than bluegill and other bream species. It is important to keep in mind that when the nights start warming into the high 50s and the days warm into the mid 70s, spawning will occur. It is important that one must keep in mind that severe weather fronts can delay the spawning activity. Most often, when a severe weather front pushes through, shellcracker will move back out to the nearest deeper water. This area will not be far from the existing spawning area. Before we get into discussing different techniques on catching shellcracker, one must learn how to locate prime spawning areas. Most people think that if you can find a shallow cove or inlet, the fish cannot be far. In some cases this is true; but concentrating on off shore structure will produce bigger fish. When looking for offshore spawning fish, concentrate on humps or ridges that are in the mouth of creeks or secondary creek channels. These humps can also be productive if vegetation or stumps are nearby. A sign to look for during the spawn is an area of stained water. Most often, you will be going over an area of clear water and all of a sudden there will be a large area that is stained or even muddy. Pay close attention to these signs. What happened here is you have located an active spawning colony. More than likely shellcracker are very active and are chasing off predators such as small bass and bluegill. Now, after I have discussed location and signs to look for, it is time to start thinking about lures and presentations. Red worms and crickets are good choices. But, once a spawning colony has been located, the jig usually does the trick. There are several different ways to fish a jig. One of the more popular methods is under a small cork. This method can be very productive. However, caution should be used when presenting it. Once the spawning colony has been located, one should fish the outer edges and proceed in towards the center as the bite slows. By doing this, spooking will be minimized. Jig sizes are important when fishing for shellcracker. A 1/32 or a 1/64 ounce lead head. Lead head colors which I have found to be successful are flo red and chartreuse. When presenting the jig and cork combination, throw out and let the jig settle. Once the jig is still, start a stop and go retrieve. Most often, the strike will occur when the jig settles. Another method is a slow retrieve without stopping. This is a more popular method when the spawn is at its peek. Over the years, I have experimented with many different rod lengths and styles. When fishing for shellcracker, I always come back to an 8 foot J&M crappie jign pole combined with a spinning reel that has a over sized spool. With this combo, a light jig can be cast a long distance with little effort. I always use 4 pound test line and this also adds distance to my cast. Another popular method for fishing for shellcrackers is a plain jig. Here, I always come back to my squirrel tail jig. Sometimes, depending on fishing pressure and weather patterns, a cork can spook fish that are spawning. If an area has had a lot of fishing pressure, a cork hitting the water surface can turn active fish off. Believe it or not, shellcracker will associate a cork with danger. A light subtle presentation and a slow fall can actually trigger strikes from fish that are spooky from heavy fishing pressure. Now that I have covered location, lures, presentations and rod and reel selections, tricks of the trade are next. Over the years, I have caught my fair share of shellcracker but there have been times when the bite has gone sour for me. Here is what I have learned. It was about 4 years ago, I was fishing Lake Miona for shellcracker. I had been catching fish like crazy and all of a sudden the bite went sour. This particular day the weather was fair and there had been no severe weather fronts approaching or passing. After several minutes with no bites, I decided to move to another location. Once again I started catching fish like crazy and bingo, the bite went sour again. I was fishing a shallow grass field and could actually see the fish I was catching. I almost could select the fish that I wanted. After catching several nice shellcracker, the bite went sour. I got disgusted at myself. The next day I was after them again. This time mother nature placed a secret right in front of me. I saw a bird that was flying over the grass flat I was fishing and it dropped a piece of plastic. More than likely this piece of plastic was going to be used for nest building material. As the plastic hit the water in front of me, 4 or 5 pound size shellcracker came up to the plastic and tore into it like it was their enemy. At this point, I said to myself, no it cant be that easy. I got down in the bottom of the boat and took off my cork and retied a 1/64 ounce jig on. I cast it out where the piece of plastic hit the water and needless to say it was over for those shellcracker. I tried this technique in the areas where the bite had gone sour the day before and it worked! I tried this method behind other anglers who left a spawning bed and it worked! So the moral of this story is if you are catching fish and the bite goes sour, a slow fall is the trick. This method aslo works well on red worms and crickets. Here I use a BB size piece of split shot about 10 inches above a #6 long shank cricket hook. When using this method, watching your line for the strike is a must! Severe cold fronts can turn spawning shellcracker to a neutral mood. In most cases, after a severe cold front passes through the shellcracker will pull off into deeper water that is nearest to their spawning colony. Lets say that you have found an active bed and have had success. a cold front passes through. You notice that the fish have mysteriously vanished. What happen here is he front has brought colder temperatures and high winds. This in turn, has dropped the water temperature a couple of degrees, thus making the fish spooky and uncertain. The fish are not far! Look around and locate the nearest deeper water near their spawning bed. You will start having success once again. After discussing location, lures, tricks of the trade, conservation is my next topic. Over the years, I have noticed many changes in the overall size of shellcrackers. There are many factors that contribute to the quality of fish. Pollution, spring floods, water temperatures, water levels and erosion are contributing factors. On some of these, we as fisherman have little control. However there is one thing that we can all do which will help insure fish for tomorrow. Over harvesting is one of the main factors that decrease the quality of shellcracker size and numbers in spawning colonies. I realize that the common pan fisherman only goes out 3 or 4 times a year to fill the freezer. There is nothing wrong with this style, but keep only what you can use. I cannot point any fingers because I, myself, am guily of over harvesting. There was a time when I first started catching these special fish, I became a meat hound! I did not realize until several years later that I was causing damage to the overall population of shellcracker. I dont believe that as anglers we could ever fish out a lake. But, I do believe that we as fisherman can decrease the quantity and quality of the population. I still have a hard time turning back big fish, especially when they are well over a pound. What I try to do is release all females. During the peek of the spawn, I also try to release the bigger males. After the spawn has taken place, keep only what you can use! Good luck and good fishin! Some things fishy Check out the mess of bass caught by Jeff and Clayton from Summerfield They caught these fish on yellow Bass Assasins south of Colemans Landing. Doug Collins is shown with a small bass caught on Friday he caught 9 in all while there were no lunkers, he had a good time. Doug Shepherd immediately released his catch back to his home in Lake Panasoffkee. JAKES DAY:Youth fishing, archery and more Kids, get your fishing poles ready and get baited up, its time for the annual JAKES Day Out at Richloam Fish Hatchery in south Sumter County. Slated from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, its a family fun day at the hatchery ponds with the Sumter County Longbeards and a collection of other organizations.

B Team: Courtney Clark, Isaac Bobonis, Zachary Starnes, and Angelie Albritton. A Team member: Michael Comstock had to leave for work prior to the awards ceremony. On Saturday, March 3, South Sumter Shooters competed in the Florida 4-H State Rifle Championship in Bronson, and placed first and second. The A Team: James Steedley, Jr., David Plunkett, Samantha Millett, and Michael Comstock will have the chance to go on to Grand Island, Nebraska to compete in the 2012 National 4-H Shooting Sports Invitational Championships which takes place from June 17th through June 22nd. Florida 4-H Shooting Sports consist of four disciplines: Archery, Hunting, Rifle, and Shotgun. The archery discipline includes combination and recurve (long bow). The rifle discipline includes: air rifle (.177 cal.), muzzle loader (black powder), and smallbore (22 cal.). The hunting discipline includes all the other disciplines plus hunting skills and recognition techniques. The second and fourth place air rifle shooters from Lake County, EGC Target teens 4H Club, declined to participate in the 2012 National 4-H Shooting Sports Invitational Championships this year in order to gain greater shooting experience. This provided an opportunity for fifth and sixth place shooters, Cadet Millett and Comstock, respectively, to move up. Shooters can compete in a discipline or subdiscipline only once at a national event. South Sumter Shooters have developed a strong legacy over the years, sending individual shooters or teams to national competition in 2006, 2007, and 2010. Each shooter must raise about $500 to supplement their meals, lodging and transportation to and from Nebraska. So heres your opportunity to support our local youth in positive skill development. You may contact Mrs. Sarah Hensley or. Mrs. Kimber Sarver at 7620 State Road 471, Suite 2, Bushnell, phone (352) 793-2728 or Commander Charlie Jacobs at South Sumter High School, 706 N. Main Street, Bushnell, FL 33513-5114, phone (352) 793-3131. Competing on our B team was Isaac Bobonis, Zachary Starnes, Anglie Albritton, and Courtney Clark.

South Sumter Shooters take top state awards Mark your calendars for March 24 as The Shred Paper Shredding Day is returning due to popular demand and will serve as a dual fundraising/adoption event to benefit both the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County and the Leesburg Humane Society. Thanks to the generosity of the Rainbow Family and Friends Club of The Villages, Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital and Hills Shred Express of Ocala, this large scale paper shredding event will run from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and will also showcase adoptable animals to help residents find their new best friend! Hills Shred Express of Ocala, a professional licensed, bonded and insured mobile shredding unit will be on-site at the veterinary hospital throughout the event to shred personal documents in the donors presence. However, no commercial shredding can be done during this event as the sheer volume cannot be met in the duration of this fundraiser. Proceeds will be shared between the HS/SPCA of Sumter and the Leesburg Humane Society. The Rainbow Clubs goal is to raise $4,000 in donations this year as there is no fee charged for this service. Funds received for the HS/SPCA of Sumter will be applied towards their green animal shelter campaign. Being green can be achieved in two ways: shredding personal documents and recycling a rescued pet by adopting one into your fur-ever family. To find ways to help the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, please visit www.hsspca.org or call 352793-9117 and the Leesburg Humane Society at 352669-3312.

However, patrols of the cemetery, near Bushnell, have been increased by local law enforcement. Additionally, cemetery personnel diligently continue to inspect the cemetery every morning. The gravesites that were disturbed show no signs of tampering, said Kurt Rotar, cemetery director. We immediately repaired the sites that were vandalized the same day. But news of the vandalism brought concerns from a substantial number of families calling the cemetery to find out if graves of their loved ones had been disturbed. A total of 13 gravesites had either been pushed over or pulled out of the ground sometime during March 3 and March 4. All of the disturbed headstones were engraved with the Star of David, symbolic of Law enforcement authorities are continuing to investigate a Monday morning collision between a CSX train and a vehicle south of Bushnell that claimed the life of a Sumter sheriffs deputy. Kimberli Smothers, 41, Bushnell, died when the 2006 Ford Expedition she was driving was struck by a northbound train near St. Catherine, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. Smothers vehicle was at the railroad crossing on County Road 720 about 8:30 a.m. when the collision happened, Hofecker said. The crossing is a dirt road without crossing gates or flashing lights. Only warning signs alert to train traffic. Sheriffs Deputy James Smothers was initially responding to the wreck but another deputy beat him to the call, Hofecker said. When the deputy realized Smothers wife was the victim, Smothers was called back to the sheriffs office before he arrived at the scene. He was then informed of his wifes death by fellow officers. Mrs. Smothers was pronounced dead at the site, Hofecker said. The vehicle was destroyed. BOBREICHMAN Editor Probe of cemetery crimes continues BOBREICHMAN Editor See PROBE, Page 2 They started with 24. Theyre down to 4. Next week, Wildwood city commissioners will begin the process of weeding through a select group of four candidates interested in filling the slot of Wildwood city manager. The position became available last year when then City Manager Robert Smith accepted a position as town manager for Windermere, in Orange County. Since Smiths departure, City Clerk Joseph Jacobs has been acting as interim city manager. Initially, 24 applicants sought the Wildwood position. The job pays between $80,000 and $90,000 a year. After reviewing the candidates, the list has been whittled down to the final four. City officials are scheduled to interview the job candidates starting on Monday, March 19, and continuing through Wednesday, March 21. The commissioners have a list of questions they will be asking the candidates, said Deanna Cox, Wildwood human resources director. The four candidates are: Bill Ed Cannon currently city manager Covington, Va. Stephen J. Cottrell currently unemployed, most recently the city manager for Windsor, Vt. Andrew T. DeCandis senior planner for Orange County Public School System. Richard Gestrich former city manager of Oviedo. Cox said she estimates a new city manager will be in place by May 1, if not sooner. City commissioners will go through a list of questions with each candidate, Cox said. Commissioners will be asking a total of between 25 to 30 questions. Hopefully they will pull out the information they are looking for (in a new city manager), she said. List shortens for city manager slot Theres still plenty of time to visit the annual Sumter County Fair. The fair continues through Saturday, March 17, at the Sumter County Fairgrounds, north of Webster, off State Road 471.

PAGE2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH15, 2012 the Jewish faith. Weve had numerous calls from family members wanting to verify that it wasnt their loved ones grave, Rotar said. We assured them that all loved ones of the graves that were disturbed were contacted. Both the Anti-Defamation League and the Sumter County Sheriffs Office have labeled the vandalism act as an antiSemitic hate crime. A reward leading to an arrest may be available by calling Crimeline at 1-800-423TIPS. In the meantime, the offense remains difficult to comprehend. Here at the cemetery, we just dont understand how anyone could single out one person or one group when the thing that ties them together is that they served in uniform under one flag, Rotar said. The national cemetery, owned by the Department of Veteran Affairs, has about 118,000 grave sites and includes 527 acres. Its the first type of any type of incident like this since the cemetery opened in 1988, Rotar said. Media coverage of the vandalism has generated some leads, said sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. Were following up on them and were actively working the case. Well do everything possible to bring the perpetrators to justice. The train was traveling between 46 to 49 mph when the collision occurred, he said. The crash doesnt appear to be the result of anything that the train did. Mrs. Smothers was alone in the vehicle. Deputy Smothers has worked for the department for more than 20 years. He is a highly decorated veteran deputy and were giving him as much time as he wants to deal with this, Hofecker said.

Heavy rain is believed to be a key factor in a weekend crash on Interstate 75 that sent seven people to area hospitals and involved 27 vehicles. No one was seriously injured in the collisions and those with minor injuries were treated at Leesburg Regional Medical Center and the Villages Regional Hospital, according to Florida Highway Patrol reports. The accident happened about 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 11, when a series of crashes started in the northbound lanes of the interstate between the Bushnell and Lake Panasoffkee exits, according to the report. Because of the crashes, the northbound lanes were closed for about two hours until wreckage could be cleared from the highway, according to FHP Troopers responding to the site identified a total of 11different collisions involving the 27 vehicles. Wet roads and rain appear to have played a role in the crashes and as such drivers are reminded and urged to use caution on the highways by reducing speed, increasing following distance, using wipers and headlights, and replacing worn tires, said FHP spokesman Sgt. Steve Gaskins.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH15, 2012 Vandalism in cemetery is a disgrace Whether they were merely insensitive kids playing a prank or thwarted adults making a statement, the recent vandalism of 14 Jewish gravestones at Florida National Cemetery is a disgrace. The cemetery is the burial grounds for military veterans who served this country. The graves belong to men and women who fought in wars to protect America and its freedom; not only did the veterans fight in wars, many of those buried at the cemetery died fighting for that cause. Men, women, blacks, whites, Catholics, Jews they all fought for a reason, and we are all the richer for their efforts. The desecration of the Jewish gravestones isnt just a simple act of vandalism. It is a statement of hatred. It is a pathetic example that prejudice continues to exist. Ironically, the very people responsible for this disgraceful act actually owe a tremendous debt to the veterans whose graves they disturbed and disgraced. Our hope is that they are brought to justice quickly and that law enforcement officers will be successful in finding them and apprehending them. Because the vandalism has been classified by law enforcement authorities as a hate crime, the penalties are harsher and justifiably so. Independents may have huge impactIf you are an Independent voter, affiliated with neither the Republican nor Democratic party, you and your vote will be wooed in the months leading up to the November general election. As a voting group Independents may have a huge impact on whether a Democrat or a Republican is elected to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next two years. Still, that may result in no change in the makeup of congress! Your participation in the general election may not be enough to bring about any change. As an Independent you probably do not participate in the primary elections thinking that these are only party functions. But this is where the incumbents are most vulnerable! The winners of these primary elections have a 50-50 chance of election in November. If you think your representative should be replaced, your best chance to make this happen is to vote in the primary of his/her party and vote for a challenger. Even democrats and republicans can cross party lines and vote in the other primary. We simply must cooperate with each other to bring about change that matters. Our shared objective should be the defeat of undesired incumbents.Glen Terrell Arlington, TexasWebster In Bloom WOW! It is our first anniversary! One year ago March, Webster in Bloom started as a grass roots organization with the purpose of beautifying our community. We have come a long way thanks to the wonderful volunteers that have made this project a continuing success. With just four volunteers initially, we have grown and grown just like the wonderful gardens that we have planted. And we can always use more volunteers. Just walk around the community buildings and streets in Webster. See how Webster in Bloom has made a difference. Some of the projects that are blooming include: Community Hall City Hall Police Station Post Office Welcome to Webster signs Medians between East Central and NE First Avenue Community Vegetable Garden Harris Park, etc. Businesses seem much brighter by displaying their flowering plants in painted molasses pots. A huge thank you go to the local nurseries, farmers and businesses that have been instrumental in their encouragement and helping to provide the materials necessary for our success. One new highlight for this year will be the recognition of Garden of the Month both residentially and commercially. This is not a contest but an opportunity to recognize those who have made an effort to beautify their properties. We need your help. If you have a friend or neighbor that has done a great job with their landscape let us know. This will be the same for commercial properties. We will place a small sign to recognize their achievements. This recognition will begin in May. Get excited. Here come the summer flowers! If you would like to volunteer or get some additional information, please contact Michael Harris at 352793-7541. He will also take nominations for the Garden of the Month project. Michael Harris Webster In BloomFHP cracks down on impaired driving The Florida Highway Patrol will be on the lookout for impaired drivers during the week ending on St. Patricks Day, March 17. FHPs effort is part of a national effort called Drive Sober of Get Pulled Over, and the Patrol will address impaired driving, failure to buckle up, speeding and reckless driving. The Florida Highway Patrol continues to make DUI (Driving Under the Influence) enforcement a priority, said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton. We have a zero tolerance for impaired driving. Having a designated driver and planning ahead will make your trip safer. In 2010, there were nearly 18,000 alcohol-related crashes on Floridas roadways. Nearly 800 people died and more than 12,000 suffered injuries because of those crashes. FHP encourages all residents of the state to drive carefully, and together we will make a difference. The Patrol offers these tips to make your St. Patricks Day and the week leading up to the holiday safer: Plan ahead. Use a designated driver. Dial *FHP (*347) on your cell phone to report an impaired driver. If you are impaired, us a taxi or call a friend or a family member to get you home safely. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement.

Racing with solar flair ... Eighth grade students at South Sumter Middle School are getting a good taste of the eco issues of our world and a good handle on race car driving or at least, solar power model racing. Kevin Strickland and other physical science teachers at the school hosted solar car races on Friday, March 2. The races began at 11 a.m. and ended a unit of study on alternative types of energy. Students spent time researching, reporting and forming statistics based on the top three vehicles in each race and teachers and students also built their own racetrack. The students made two trial runs, in which they had to calculate velocity, acceleration and write about energy transformation that occurs from the sun to the electrical components of the car. The winning team was the Guzzlers with a time of 4.69 seconds. The team was comprised of Alyssa McCoy, Rashanna Badal, KateLee Wells, Olivia Collins and Amber Rivera.

A week or so ago on a Sunday afternoon, two women I dont know knocked on my door. They said they knew me, or at least knew me through my writing and somehow thought I could help them find their friend Dennis. They knew enough about me to deduce that I owned my own home and searched the county property appraisers website to find my address so they could come and see me in person because they were that desperate to find their friend who was missing. Since they only looked partially crazy, and they assured me that they dont normally stalk people I was their first I let them in my house. Their friend Dennis was missing and they were frantic to find him. They wouldve done anything to find someone to help them. Then they described him: Hes a bit scary, like an alligator.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH15, 2012, PAGE7 Gloria Sairls traces the cutting lines on the plastic bottle during a Trash to Treasure course at Dade Park recently. The ladies used floral dcor inside the bottle and created a hanging flower basket. Retired teacher Karen Cloud shared one of her trash to treasure secrets, teaching to make bows from wrapping paper. Shown (clockwise from left, facing the camera ) are: Joyce OKeefe, Donna East and Caren Kurtiss and Cloud, Amy Loomis, Madeline Schneider and Roberta Rozansky. It doesnt matter what your interest, it seems that Dade Park event coordinators are working to put it on the agenda. From a pioneer Christmas with apple cider over the fire, to haunted hayrides, basket making, bird programs and the high-tech geo-caching, theres been plenty of fun on the schedule. This month, the fun has included a moonlight walk and a mid-week Trash to Treasures event. The night walk drew 34 people and they were able to hear, see or identify a collection of insect, bird and wildlife. Coordinator Kristen Wood is already putting together another walk, set for April. Each walk is unique, even if they travel the same course and the participants are the same. The day-long treasures experience offered visitors nearly a dozen options in art lessons taking trash items such as plastic grocery bags, soda bottles and paper scraps and turning them into art treasures. Karen Cloud taught students how to turn wrapping paper scraps into birthday bows, while Judie Bradley gave lessons in weaving plastic bags into rugs and placemats. Sherrie Braddy used material scraps to make rag rugs, Brenda Adams used paper scraps to make necklace beads and Diane Rigsby and her daughter Elizabeth turned scraps into quilling designs. Other teachers were Patti Fox on making boxes from Christmas cards, Mary Kavanaugh on butterflies. Muguette Moulin was also on hand to help. This round, students were Drenda Snare, Teri Sutton, Sharon and Bruce Jamison, Amy Loomis, Gloria Sairls and Madeline Schneider, Joyce OKeefe, Donna East and Caren Kurtiss. This past Wednesday, there was a boondoggle class weaving with palm fronds. On Friday, March 20 therell be a hummingbird program inside the lodge and from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, there will be a Tree Identification Walk. Medicinal plants anyone? Therell be a program on Historic Medicinal Native Plants from 1 p.m to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27. For information, about upcoming events or a visit to the park, call 352-7934781.

he might bite you. With a loud and thunderous voice, people often think hes mean. He rushes into a room like Superman. Hes a bulldozer and socially awkward. He doesnt sound lovable and cuddly, but these women seemed to love him. Tears welled in their eyes as they continued to tell me about him. Before Dennis disappeared he volunteered at the same local outreach ministry where the women volunteer. He was there every single day the ministry was open, arriving a half-hour early and staying until they made him go home except, he didnt have a home, at least not one with traditional walls and such. He lived in a structure that has a tree growing in the middle of it, and he let anyone who needed a home stay there, too. He has nothing but shares everything. At the ministry, if you asked Dennis to clear out one end of the donations room, he would, the women said, although you might find everything from that end in piles at the other end. He took it upon himself to make sure all the trash cans were clean. No dirty trash cans on Dennis watch, no sir. The women, no longer even partially crazy, continued to tell me about Dennis and about how it wasnt like him to go missing other than after an occasional night of too much drinking. Then one of the women said, Initially, when you hear about or see Dennis situation, your heart might yearn to help fix such a man, but quite to the contrary, Dennis doesnt need to be fixed. Sometimes Dennis will find something a ceramic angel, a certain snack he knows you like and hold it out to you and say, Here, you need this. The woman standing in my entryway, with the passionate desperation that can only be fueled by love said, Dennis possesses the one thing the rest of us can only hope for a heart of love for others. His words are true: Here, you need this. Then she said his friend, Hobo Joe, had recently died in a tragic fire and Dennis somehow doesnt have the skills or the capacity or the language necessary to process his feelings. That maybe thats why their developmentally disabled friend was missing. Maybe he grabbed his backpack and just took off, trying to escape his confusing feelings. (Really, dont we all do that one way or another?) Before the women left my house they said, He is our Dennis and we love him we need him. The next day I worked on the story for the newspaper and by the end of the week, mostly thanks to the sheriffs office, Dennis was found safe and sound helping at an outreach ministry at a church in Tallahassee, hundreds of miles away. But the story doesnt end here. In talking with the pastor at the church in Tallahassee how he got that far, the pastor didnt know. But she did know that he had been their Dennis years before. He would show up at their mission outreach every day, all gruff and thunderous and bulldozer-like, and his awkward, sometimes annoying love transformed them. When he disappeared one day several years ago, they, too, filed a missing persons report and worried and prayed and cried until they learned of his whereabouts. When I told my boss the whole story she said, I want to be that loved! And you know what? We are that loved. Were all a Dennis, broken and imperfect, and Jesus came searching for us all the way to the Cross.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Proceeds benefit the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. Spring is in the air. Flowers are starting to bloom, and new leaves are sprouting on the trees. With the nicer weather, pets are out more often enjoying the fresh new scents of spring. Wildlife is also stirring, and our pets are more apt to come in contact with the local wildlife critters. It is important to be aware of the health risks that are prevalent this time of year. Not only are our domestic animals at risk of contracting rabies, but other deadly viruses flourish this time of year. Parvo and distemper are two very common viruses that are highly contagious and almost always fatal to pets that are not vaccinated. To assure your furry friend stays healthy, it is important to keep your pets vaccinations up to date. Florida State law requires that domestic animals have a current rabies vaccination by a licensed veterinarian. Prevention is easy and now affordable when you bring your pet to the upcoming Low Cost Pet Vaccination Clinic. The benefit to pet parents is a huge savings. The benefit for your pet is good health. Our furry family members depend on us to care for them. Their health and well being is our responsibility. At the affordable prices offered at the Low Cost Pet Vaccination Clinic, no dog or cat should have to suffer from preventable diseases.

Solution to puzzle on page 9 Wildwood Wildcats on a mission The Wildwood Wildcats are on a mission this year, moving into early March with a 6 and 0 record, top pitching and hard hitting under the leadership of coaches Adam Cardona and Kevin Lidell. While the record slowed a little during the second week of the month moving Wildwood to 7-2, the team is still pushing for the district championship and a chance to move up in play. The Cats held a district win against Peniel Baptist, with Garrett Hurst pitching a no-hitter that Friday night and striking out 10 batters. Wildwood took that victory 6-0. The night also led to some great hits by Shawn Aten who was 3 for 3, Brady Adams, Drew Terry, Jalen Gooden, Sean Hensley and Hurst. Last week, the Cats took two losses for the record change, but came back to beat St. Johns on Monday night, 11-4. We can still get the number one seat, said Cardona of the championship. He notes ne of their gains as having only high school players on the varsity team this year. As for their strengths, Cardona notes theyve got some top pitching with Shawn Aten and Garrett Hurst. Every time they take the mound, he said of their abilities to pitch well and stay energized. While it does limit the opportunities for other players to pitch, Youre never going to complain, he said of having top pitchers on the mound. With hitting as another strength, Cardona said, Our bats have definitely woken up this year. Even when theyre not hitting the way they would like, he said theyre still hitting right where they should and hitting hard. Wildwood has another 11 games and the team goal is to hopefully get down to St. Lucie in the playoffs, Cardona said. At press time on Tuesday afternoon, Wildwood had a game against Lake Weir that night and another slated for Monday, March 19 against Mt. Dora Bible. Cardona urges the public to Come on out and support the Cats. The Wildwood Wildcats varsity team players are: seniors Dale Gifford, 2; Drew Terru, 5; Shawn Aten, 7; Garrett Hurst, 11; Sean Hensley, 12; Jake Phillips, 14. Number 9, Jalen Goodin is the only junior on the team and freshmen are: Darren Frasier, 3; Nate White, 4; Brant Ragan, 6; Brady Adams, 8; Torre Parker, 13; Dalton Pope, 15.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH15, 2012, PAGE13 Weekly fishing report and news from Tracys Point Fishing Lodge For week ending March 11 Report by Donna and Steve Lind Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 329 Anglers Bass Fishing 303 Bass caught 342 Bass Released 330 Pan Fish caught You never know what youre gonna get at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge. Doug Shepherd was bass fishing on Wednesday and thought for sure that he had the lunker of a lifetime on his line. When he finally got his catch to the boat it turned out to be a small gator. Doug immediately released his catch back to his home beautiful Lake Panasoffkee. Moving from bass fishing to shell crackers, its getting close for us at Tracys Point to switch out our wild shiner tanks over to cricket boxes in preparation of Shellcracker season. I thought it would be helpful to provide some information on Shellcracker (Redear) fishing as follows:Shellcracker, Bully of the shallows As the winter comes to a close and the days start getting longer, most anglers start getting the itch for the coming fishing season. Tackle boxes are organized and boats are tuned up. Old brittle line is replaced with new. In the shallows there is a small but robust fish starting to move and become active. Seeking out shallow flats that warm the earliest and taking refuge and becoming nothing more than a big bully! In the south, shellcracker fishing is common among pan fisherman. Pound for pound, there is not another fish that out pulls these little Bullies. By the end of March, depending on water temperatures and water levels, Redears (Shellcracker) start migrating to the shallows in preparation for the spawn. Over the years I have made a habit of keeping accurate records. I record weather patterns, water levels, lures used, wind directions, barometric pressure readings, places fished, water temperatures, air temperatures and the list goes on. Out of all these that I have mentioned, I would have to place water temperature and water levels to be the most important. The ideal water temperature for shellcracker during the spawn in my opinion is 62-67 degrees. For some reason, shellcracker prefer a little cooler temperature than bluegill and other bream species. It is important to keep in mind that when the nights start warming into the high 50s and the days warm into the mid 70s, spawning will occur. It is important that one must keep in mind that severe weather fronts can delay the spawning activity. Most often, when a severe weather front pushes through, shellcracker will move back out to the nearest deeper water. This area will not be far from the existing spawning area. Before we get into discussing different techniques on catching shellcracker, one must learn how to locate prime spawning areas. Most people think that if you can find a shallow cove or inlet, the fish cannot be far. In some cases this is true; but concentrating on off shore structure will produce bigger fish. When looking for offshore spawning fish, concentrate on humps or ridges that are in the mouth of creeks or secondary creek channels. These humps can also be productive if vegetation or stumps are nearby. A sign to look for during the spawn is an area of stained water. Most often, you will be going over an area of clear water and all of a sudden there will be a large area that is stained or even muddy. Pay close attention to these signs. What happened here is you have located an active spawning colony. More than likely shellcracker are very active and are chasing off predators such as small bass and bluegill. Now, after I have discussed location and signs to look for, it is time to start thinking about lures and presentations. Red worms and crickets are good choices. But, once a spawning colony has been located, the jig usually does the trick. There are several different ways to fish a jig. One of the more popular methods is under a small cork. This method can be very productive. However, caution should be used when presenting it. Once the spawning colony has been located, one should fish the outer edges and proceed in towards the center as the bite slows. By doing this, spooking will be minimized. Jig sizes are important when fishing for shellcracker. A 1/32 or a 1/64 ounce lead head. Lead head colors which I have found to be successful are flo red and chartreuse. When presenting the jig and cork combination, throw out and let the jig settle. Once the jig is still, start a stop and go retrieve. Most often, the strike will occur when the jig settles. Another method is a slow retrieve without stopping. This is a more popular method when the spawn is at its peek. Over the years, I have experimented with many different rod lengths and styles. When fishing for shellcracker, I always come back to an 8 foot J&M crappie jign pole combined with a spinning reel that has a over sized spool. With this combo, a light jig can be cast a long distance with little effort. I always use 4 pound test line and this also adds distance to my cast. Another popular method for fishing for shellcrackers is a plain jig. Here, I always come back to my squirrel tail jig. Sometimes, depending on fishing pressure and weather patterns, a cork can spook fish that are spawning. If an area has had a lot of fishing pressure, a cork hitting the water surface can turn active fish off. Believe it or not, shellcracker will associate a cork with danger. A light subtle presentation and a slow fall can actually trigger strikes from fish that are spooky from heavy fishing pressure. Now that I have covered location, lures, presentations and rod and reel selections, tricks of the trade are next. Over the years, I have caught my fair share of shellcracker but there have been times when the bite has gone sour for me. Here is what I have learned. It was about 4 years ago, I was fishing Lake Miona for shellcracker. I had been catching fish like crazy and all of a sudden the bite went sour. This particular day the weather was fair and there had been no severe weather fronts approaching or passing. After several minutes with no bites, I decided to move to another location. Once again I started catching fish like crazy and bingo, the bite went sour again. I was fishing a shallow grass field and could actually see the fish I was catching. I almost could select the fish that I wanted. After catching several nice shellcracker, the bite went sour. I got disgusted at myself. The next day I was after them again. This time mother nature placed a secret right in front of me. I saw a bird that was flying over the grass flat I was fishing and it dropped a piece of plastic. More than likely this piece of plastic was going to be used for nest building material. As the plastic hit the water in front of me, 4 or 5 pound size shellcracker came up to the plastic and tore into it like it was their enemy. At this point, I said to myself, no it cant be that easy. I got down in the bottom of the boat and took off my cork and retied a 1/64 ounce jig on. I cast it out where the piece of plastic hit the water and needless to say it was over for those shellcracker. I tried this technique in the areas where the bite had gone sour the day before and it worked! I tried this method behind other anglers who left a spawning bed and it worked! So the moral of this story is if you are catching fish and the bite goes sour, a slow fall is the trick. This method aslo works well on red worms and crickets. Here I use a BB size piece of split shot about 10 inches above a #6 long shank cricket hook. When using this method, watching your line for the strike is a must! Severe cold fronts can turn spawning shellcracker to a neutral mood. In most cases, after a severe cold front passes through the shellcracker will pull off into deeper water that is nearest to their spawning colony. Lets say that you have found an active bed and have had success. a cold front passes through. You notice that the fish have mysteriously vanished. What happen here is he front has brought colder temperatures and high winds. This in turn, has dropped the water temperature a couple of degrees, thus making the fish spooky and uncertain. The fish are not far! Look around and locate the nearest deeper water near their spawning bed. You will start having success once again. After discussing location, lures, tricks of the trade, conservation is my next topic. Over the years, I have noticed many changes in the overall size of shellcrackers. There are many factors that contribute to the quality of fish. Pollution, spring floods, water temperatures, water levels and erosion are contributing factors. On some of these, we as fisherman have little control. However there is one thing that we can all do which will help insure fish for tomorrow. Over harvesting is one of the main factors that decrease the quality of shellcracker size and numbers in spawning colonies. I realize that the common pan fisherman only goes out 3 or 4 times a year to fill the freezer. There is nothing wrong with this style, but keep only what you can use. I cannot point any fingers because I, myself, am guily of over harvesting. There was a time when I first started catching these special fish, I became a meat hound! I did not realize until several years later that I was causing damage to the overall population of shellcracker. I dont believe that as anglers we could ever fish out a lake. But, I do believe that we as fisherman can decrease the quantity and quality of the population. I still have a hard time turning back big fish, especially when they are well over a pound. What I try to do is release all females. During the peek of the spawn, I also try to release the bigger males. After the spawn has taken place, keep only what you can use! Good luck and good fishin! Some things fishy Check out the mess of bass caught by Jeff and Clayton from Summerfield They caught these fish on yellow Bass Assasins south of Colemans Landing. Doug Collins is shown with a small bass caught on Friday he caught 9 in all while there were no lunkers, he had a good time. Doug Shepherd immediately released his catch back to his home in Lake Panasoffkee. JAKES DAY:Youth fishing, archery and more Kids, get your fishing poles ready and get baited up, its time for the annual JAKES Day Out at Richloam Fish Hatchery in south Sumter County. Slated from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, its a family fun day at the hatchery ponds with the Sumter County Longbeards and a collection of other organizations. Each year, the Longbeards, the Sumter chapter of the National Wild Turkey Foundation, host a day of fishing, turkey calling archery and other outdoor events and exhibits for children and their families. The idea is to pass down an appreciation for outdoor traditions to a younger generation. The fun includes a chance to shoot a B.B. gun, or try out a bow and arrow. Therell be a turkey calling contest and the fishing tournament for kids, along with lunch for the entire family and tours of the hatchery. Exhibitors at the event will include the Sumter County Sheriffs Office helicopter, the department of corrections tracking dogs, Smokey the Bear, the Discovery Channels Swamp Brothers and the Florida forestry department. Therell be some free prizes and the grand prize of a two-person bass boat. Coordinator Gary Marriage notes theyre still looking for volunteers to help with the event, as well as additional donations. Anyone interested in attending for fun or to help, can contact Marriage at 352-303-7783. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesGeorge Pearce is shown helping Cayley Pearce during the fishing event. Hundreds of children have a chance to fish the ponds at the hatchery, doing a catch and release. The JAKES events are designed to get the kids outdoors, Marriage said, explaining they want the children to learn to enjoy the outdoors, while learning all about it. He said the organization focuses on education and conservation. Dixie Summerlin took part in last years turkey calling competition.
