Sheriff's office warns of scam


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

A recent telephone
scam cost a resident of
The Villages more than
$4,000 and has local law
enforcement officers con-
cerned that other Sumter
County residents could
become victims of the
same scam.
The scenario began on
Friday, March 23, when an
88-year-old resident of
The Villages received a
phone call from someone
she believed to be her
grandson saying that he
was in Mexico City and


The scenario began on Friday, March 23, when an 88-year-old resident of The
Villages received a call from someone she believed to be her grandson saying he
was in Mexico City and had been busted with 2.5 pounds of marijuana


had been busted with 2.5
pounds of marijuana, ac-
cording to a Sumter sher-
iff's office report.
The woman then in-
formed her 66-year-old
son of the call from the
grandson saying the
grandson was in jail and
needed to get in touch
with his father as soon as
possible, the report states.
Names of the victims were
not provided by the sher-
iff's office. She provided


the father with a phone
number to allegedly call
Mexico City.
The father then called
the number and report-
edly spoke with a man
who identified himself as
John Thomas and claimed
he worked for the U.S.
Embassy in Mexico City.
Thomas reportedly told
the man that his son was
in Mexico City with some
other Americans and was
stopped by police who


found 2.5 pounds of mari-
juana in their vehicle.
Thomas advised that he
could get the court date
moved up if the father
paid the $2,500 bond. The
father agreed to wire the
money by Western Union.
After completing the
transaction, he called
Thomas back and pro-
vided him with the control
number for the transac-
tion. Thomas called back
in two hours saying the


bond was posted and the
charges had been
dropped.
Thomas then advised
that the man would be get-
ting the $2,300 back by cer-
tified check, according to
the sheriff's office report.
Thomas also told the fa-
ther there was a fine of
$2,300 and after he paid
the fine, his son would be
free to leave.
The victim then trans-
ferred an additional


$2,300 by Western Union
with Thomas assuring him
that his son would be call-
ing in a few hours.
But that call never
came. Instead, the victim
contacted his son and
found that he had not
been in Mexico at all, but
was at Marine Corps train-
ing in Michigan the entire
time.
Realizing he had been
scammed, the victim con-
tacted the Sumter County
Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers is advising resi-
dents to be cautious when
dealing with unknown
callers

Nearly every diner at
the local TGI Fri-
day's was ap-
proached by Sumter
County law enforcement
and questioned right at
their tables.
But suspects, perps and
modus operandi weren't
up for discussion instead
it was "What would you
like to drink with that?",
"How would you like it
cooked?" and a host of
other questions that could
lead investigators straight
to the kitchen with an
order and through to the fi-
nale where they'd collect a
great tip.
Deputies, investigators
and even a chief worked as
restaurant servers to the


public through the dinner
shift, hoping to earn some
big tips for Special
Olympics and local ath-
letes. It's all part of the
"Tip-A-Cop" program.
Sumter sheriff's Lt
Bobby Caruthers and his
assistant Nicky McClain
coordinated the event,
which was held from 5 p.m.
to 7 p.m. on March 21.
McClain pointed out that
the events "have turned
out wonderful and we have
always had a great time,"
as she urged volunteers to
take part.
After this year's first
fundraiser, they expressed

Born in West Helena,
Arkansas, Mike Harris en-
listed in the U.S. Air Force
in 1950, undergoing basic
training at Shepherd Air
Force Base in San Antonio
and seeing his first over-
seas deployment take him
to French Morocco in
northern Africa at a time
when the territory was still
a French protectorate.
Harris obtained his BS de-
gree at University of Ari-
zona and later his Masters
in Science at Michigan
State, becoming a teacher
for many years to children
of families working at U.S.
government installations
stationed throughout Ger-
many, Japan, Turkey,
Greece, Spain, Italy, Portu-
gal, the Philippines and
other nations as part of the
Overseas Dependent
School program. Harris
married his current wife


Dottie in 1968, they have
one child and two grand-
children.
"I love to bake cookies,
cook, prepare and serve
meals for patients, prepare
coffee or tea.. .and receive
the greatest sense of satis-
faction and accomplish-
ment knowing I bring
comfort to patients with a
life-threatening illness"
Relocating to Florida in
1979, Harris was elected as
a Commissioner and
Mayor in the City of Web-
ster in January 1998 serv-
ing four years until 2002
and is currently a sitting
Commissioner in Webster.
"I love to bake cookies,
cook, prepare and serve
meals for patients, prepare
coffee or tea for patients
and visitors, clean... I do
whatever needs to be done,
and receive the greatest
sense of satisfaction and
accomplishment knowing
I'm helping patients with a
life-threatening illness."
Having worked four years
in Athens and four years in


Crete, Harris travels to
Greece every summer, vis-
iting the island of Skopelos
where his parents were
born, were raised and mar-
ried in the village of Glossa
in close proximity of the
port of Loutraki by the idyl-
lic Aegean Sea.
Prior to relocating to
Sumter County, Barbara
Leisner lived eight years in
Bonita Springs while work-
ing at Bonita Veterinary
Hospital there. Barbara
has two children, Joseph
and Jill and one grand-
child, Jessica, born as a
one pound-six ounce pre-
mie, but healthy now and
living in Missouri. Barbara
and her husband Frank
moved to Lake Panasoff-
kee in 2000. Suffering a
stroke in 2001, Barbara
learned about serious ill-
nesses and realizing she
could help patients in
worst circumstances than
herself, she has been as-
sisting caregivers since

voted on Tuesday to ex-
pand hunting opportuni-
ties at two
District-managed lands.
Hunting opportunities
will be expanded on these
District properties:
The Lake Panasoffkee
property will offer 21 days
of small game hunting.
The Weekiwachee Pre-
serve will offer 30 days of
archery in its southern por-
tion. In addition, the north-
ern portion of the property
will be included in the ex-
isting Chassahowitzka
Wildlife Management Area.
The Chassahowitzka
River and Coastal Swamps
and Halpata Tastanaki
Preserve properties were
also considered; however,
no expansion was ap-
proved in those areas.

Gum Slough Spring minimum


flows and levels workshop


The Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District is inviting the public
to comment on proposed minimum
flows and levels (MFLs) for Gum
Slough Spring Run and associated
springs in northwestern Sumter County
and southwestern Marion County at a
public meeting on Wednesday, April 4.
The rule development public work-
shop will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the
Marion Oaks Community Center, 294
Marion Oaks Lane, Ocala.
The state Legislature requires the
District to set minimum flows and lev-
els (MFLs) for priority water bodies
within the District. A minimum flow or
level is the limit at which further water
withdrawals will cause significant
harm to the water resources and/or en-
vironment.
During the workshop, District staff
will review the regulatory framework
and the technical basis for the pro-
posed MFLs. The workshop will also


provide an opportunity for local gov-
ernments, residents and others to be
part of the development of minimum
flows and levels for the spring system.
Public comment gathered at the
workshop will be summarized and pre-
sented to the Governing Board when
staff submits the results of an ongoing
independent peer review in the coming
months. Following consideration of the
comments and peer review report, the
Governing Board may choose to adopt
the MFLs into District rules. Governing
Board meetings are open to the public
where brief oral comments are permit-
ted on meeting agenda items.
A draft report containing information
on the development of MFLs for Gum
Slough is posted on the District's web-
site. To locate the report, visit Water-
Matters.org/mfl and click on the "MFL
documents and reports" link. For more
information, please contact Gary
Williams at 1-800-423-1476, extension
4286.

Electronics win



over tradition

It's possible to be nostalgic about something you never had, and
plenty of people are feeling that right now. Even if your family
didn't have the prestigious 32-volume Encyclopedia Britannica
in your home housed in its own special book rack, of course -
you probably knew someone who had it. And maybe you were for-
tunate enough to spend many wonderful youthful hours lost in the
worlds and ideas carefully explained and painstakingly illustrated
in the Encyclopedia Britannica.
For most of its 244 years, the Encyclopedia Britannica repre-
sented the gold standard of reference works.
But those learned people who publish it haven't been blind and
deaf to the march of technology, so they have been preparing for
the day when the print version would give way 100 percent to the
digital product. That day has arrived.
First published in Scotland in 1768, the Encyclopedia Britannica
is offering the current edition as its final print product, a collec-
tor's item. It's only $1,399.
The nostalgia is more about the electronic way of the world than
the disappearance of Encyclopedia Britannica's print version. In
the old days, an encyclopedia was a buffet, where you could dip in
and out to taste an outlandish variety of information in one session.
Today's search engines cater to a la carte knowledge acquisition.
According to the Pew Research Center's Generations Online 2010
report, using a search engine is the No. 1 use of the Internet across
all age categories, including those aged 73 and older
Ask anyone whether his first inclination when looking something
up is to paw through a book or jump online to check. Right, some
things are easier on the Internet. But the Internet doesn't give that
comforting heft and page feel, and doesn't produce the special
smell bibliophiles associate with leather-bound editions.
No fear, though. The folks at Britannica are far from giving up in
the reference and education game. They know their competition
includes Wikipedia, the crowd-sourced online reference whose
"facts" aren't always reliable despite improved content adminis-

A Cowboy's Story



Woven through Time


Editor's note:
The following story is by Grif-
fin Mangan, an 11th-grade stu-
dent at Forest High School in
Ocala. It is published as submit-
ted:
The purpose of this
assignment was to in-
terview someone who
had participated in
history
Chapter 1- Weav-
ing the First Whip
John Outlaw's story
is like the intricate
cow whips he plaits by
hand. Each strand,
like his life, has a story
unique from the rest
and filled with its own
personal history For JohnV
John Outlaw, this story
started on March 5, 1921, when
he was born on a small farm in
Sumter County, Florida. Life
growing up on the farm was a
rough one for the Outlaw family,
but John and his six siblings did
all they could to help their fam-
ily get by During this time,
America was suffering through
the Great Depression, ushered
in by the enormous expendi-
tures of World War I that crip-
pled many families. The
Outlaws did what they could to
help these families in their area
by grinding up corn in a mill to
give out to others. These corn
grindings could be turned into a
variety of foods ranging from
cornbread to grits. The Outlaws
remained a resourceful family
and, in 1927, they built a barn
out of logs from the nearby
woods. Mr. Outlaw still carries
on the legacy of craftsmanship
today as he creates whips,
canes, clocks, and other items
from wood, animal hide, and
such materials.
Growing up on a farm taught
Mr. Outlaw many useful skills


V.


such as how to herd cattle, hunt
and how to plait a whip. The
farm was an "open range" farm
which meant that it was not
fenced in. Mr Outlaw recalls his
adolescent years on
the farm with a quote
he still remembers to
this day; "A 14-year-
old boy hadn't truly
lived until he was in
the woods with his .22
and his dog Blue." Mr
Outlaw said that some
of his fondest memo-
ries of growing up
were hunting fowl in
the woods on those hot
summer days in
Florida, with a biscuit
Outlaw in each pocket to feed
himself and his hungry
dog. While Mr Outlaw
enjoyed his time on the farm,
his parents worked at day jobs
to help provide for their family
His father worked at the Silver
Springs River helping move tur-
pentine onto boats for shipment
while his mother worked at the
local Malever's Department
Store. The family also owned a
small general store that they
sold farming equipment and
supplies at. Mr. Outlaw's par-
ents worked very hard to make
sure that they could provide a
decent life for their family in
such hard times. However the
world was changing and soon
the entire world would be
plunged into a second world
war
Chapter 2- A Young Man
is called to War
In 1942, John Outlaw joined
the Army to serve his country
during World War II while his
family maintained the farm.

Thank you,
A recent segment on CNN


told of rampant income tax
fraud. Thieves steal social secu-
rity numbers and file very early
fraudulent tax returns on the
accounts of these social security
numbers. They then receive the
refunds that were due honest
working citizens. The segment
went on to suggest that the IRS
was not doing its part to curtail
such activities.
The income tax has been se-
riously flawed from its incep-
tion. Every working citizen
must spend several hours every
year completing the tax forms
or pay a professional to prepare
it. There are myriads of per-
sons, whose salary we pay,
working within the IRS shuf-
fling all this paper.
The income tax should be re-
placed with the Fair Tax and
thereby eliminating the expen-
sive IRS, its imperfections and
loop holes manipulated by our
Congresspersons. The Fair Tax
is essentially a national sales
tax. It is collected at the point of
sale. There are no exceptions;
everything that is purchased is
taxed.
There are safeguards to pro-
tect those living below the
poverty level. The Fair Tax has
been "in committee" in both the
House and Senate for over a
year Ask your congressional


candidates about the Fair Tax
before you vote.

Insanity
This country is broke. More
than 15 trillion dollars in debt
and the Democrats think they
can spend our way out of the fi-
nancial mess we are in. The Re-
publicans pretend they are
against that by offering a plan
for more spending with slightly
less deficit. The same incum-
bents that got us in this situa-
tion are re-elected every two
years. When will the insanity
end?
GOOOH.Com has a system for
selecting candidates to the
House of Representatives that
are pledged to stop this mad-
ness. Citizen Representatives
who are not bought by special
interest money or big party
agenda and will support term
limits. 2012 is a critical election
year. If we wait any longer, it
may be too late to recover from
the massive spending and over-
regulation. Help fire the cur-
rent Congress and return our
government to the Constitu-
tional Republic it once was.

I don't want a cheap funeral, but I can save a lot

of money by planning now...so why not?

I'm a person who plans ahead and I'm also pretty careful with
the money I make.
Since someday my family and I will need a reliable funeral home,
why not make my arrangements now and lock in a low price that I can
control?
The old saying is true: you can't take your money with you. But,
if I make my plans now I can make the decisions on all the details that
matter to me, including the cost, and that's like leaving more money
behind for my wife and kids.

STORY

continued from Page 4
taught him how to operate
a gun and vehicles so he
quickly excelled in his
training. Fifty-four days
after the initial allied inva-
sion of Normandy Beach,
Mr. Outlaw arrived as a
communications man and
a jeep driver. He was able
to collect many souvenirs
from his service during the
war such as a German hel-
met he picked up from a
battlefield and a Nazi flag
he found in Austria.
Mr. Outlaw still remem-
bers the war vividly and
told many accounts of his
service. One such story was
from later in the war when
the Germans began surren-
dering as the allies pushed
further into Germany He
was driving his jeep along
the road from the recently
liberated Dachau prison
camp. Before liberation,
Dachau was a German con-


centration camp and prior
to being found; the Ger-
mans forced the 7,000 oc-
cupants on a death march
to the Tegernsee camp to
the south. As he drove, he
noticed that the refugees
kept watching behind them
and he began to sense that
something was wrong. He
drove a short distance fur-
ther until he found the
source of the refugee's un-
ease, A German soldier. He
recalls that the soldier had
three rifles slung on his
shoulder and was trying to
surrender. Mr. Outlaw ap-
proached the German cau-
tiously and unloaded the
rifles into a ditch. He then
made the unarmed Ger-
man ride on the hood of
the jeep back to camp. He
says "I'm not sure why I
made him ride on the hood
and not in the back
seat..maybe I just didn't
trust him. We treated the
prisoners nicely though."
Mr. Outlaw continued to
serve at Dachau for some
time helping refugees from
Russia, Czechoslovakia,


and Belgium. He recalls
that the whole thing was
simply pitiful and sad. The
soldiers had no extra food
to give to the starving
refugees. Mr. Outlaw still
holds onto his relics of the
war such as his sewing kit,
600 calorie chocolate bar
and original uniform that
was issued to him. He was
the recipient of six medals
and five major battle stars
for his service during the
war although he remains
very humble about it. He
was also the recipient of
the good conduct medal
which he chuckled at upon
my mentioning the award.
Chapter 3-The Cow-
boy Comes Home
In December of 1945, Mr.
Outlaw was given an hon-
orable discharge from the
Army He returned home to
Sumter County and bought
300 acres of land quickly
filled with cattle. In 1948,
Mr. Outlaw helped build
Highway 50 as manual
labor for the state. In 1951
he married his sweetheart,


Almarene Woodard, and
together they had two
daughters, Mary and Susan
Outlaw. Almarene had also
grown up in Sumter
County The majority of Mr.
Outlaw's income came
from the cattle ranching in-
dustry and his jobs as a la-
borer.
Mr. Outlaw continued to
work as a laborer on the
side for some time to put
his daughters through col-
lege. One daughter became
a professor at a college in
Georgia after getting her
doctorate degree (Ed.D.) in
education and the other
became a music teacher at
an elementary school and
music director/organist at
a church. He is very proud
of his daughters and he


says, "I am very proud of
them, especially since they
are still country girls at
heart who know how to
milk a cow." Mr. Outlaw re-
tired in 1981 at the age of
60 and moved to Inverness,
Florida, where he still
lives today
Chapter 4- Keeping
the Traditions Alive
Mr. Outlaw still crafts
whips as he has all these
years. Almarene passed
away several years ago so
Mr. Outlaw lives by himself.
He says, "I make these
whips to keep my mind
busy and me away from the
bars, not that I would ever
go to the bars in the first
place." He has kept the tra-
ditions of a past era alive


through his cowboy
lifestyle and he still carries
the memories of many
years with him as well as
the knowledge he has
gained by virtue of experi-
ence. Mr. Outlaw still owns
that property in Sumter
County and still has a 75-
year-old whip, one of the
first he ever made. At 91
years of age, Mr Outlaw re-
mains as sharp as the
whips he crafts and con-
fessed that he doesn't take
any vitamins or medicine
to this day He told me at
the end of the interview, "I
feel that it is my duty to
pass on this story and his-
tory to the new generations
so that they can learn from
it."

March Member
of the Month
The Sumter Chamber
Ambassadors selected
Fred Clark of Ink-4-Less
Plus as the Member of
the Month in March.
Fred's diverse entrepre-
neurial background in-
cludes work in sales,
marketing, merchandis-
ing, non-profit work, and


more. A member of the
Sumter Chamber for
more than five years,
Fred has contributed
many hours volunteer-
ing to plan events such
as Casino Night, Show
Me the Money Business
Expo, last year's Taste of
Simply Sumter, Annual
Dinner, and the popular
Beef and Boogie Festi-
val. He served as an Am-
bassador for the
chamber for several
years and is very active
in new member recruit-
ment. "I personally feel
that the chamber is ben-
eficial to any business
proportionate to what
you put into it," he said.
"I enjoy planning events
because I enjoy meeting
people. My grandfather
always said 'meet some-
one new, try something
new, do something new
every day' What better
way to do it than
through the chamber?"
Fred is a staple at cham-
ber functions and this
year chose to take a
leadership role in the
weekly Leads Lunch
group. "Being involved
with the Sumter Cham-
ber has generated ex-
citement in me and I
just keep my eyes open
and want to be a part of
it and take a leading
role on certain occa-
sions." States Clark,"
The team that we have
now is the best team
since I've been involved


with the chamber from
the staff to the board of
directors. Some of the
ideas that come out of it
are fabulous. I particu-
larly love the Simply
Sumter program. I've
been involved in a lot of
chambers and I've never
seen anything like I see
coming from the Sumter
Chamber." Call Fred for
all your printing and
marketing products,

Jeronimo jumps into district title


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Luis Jeronimo developed a taste for the
Class 1A boys state weightlifting meet in
2010.
Sadly, the South Sumter weightlifter
wasn't able to qualify for the state meet in
2011 but he plans to enjoy another day in
Kissimmee this year.
Jeronimo took the first step Wednesday,
March 21 when he placed second in the
119-pound class during the Class 1A-Dis-
trict 6 meet at the South Sumter High
gym.
He was one of 13 South Sumter lifters
to qualify for the Class 1A regional, which
will be April 4 also at the South Sumter
High gym. If Jeronimo can qualify, he will
be very happy to make it to the Class 1A
state meet April 20 at the Kissimmee Con-
vention Center.


He had a bench press of 205 pounds and
a clean and jerk of 160 pounds for a 365-
pound total.
Teammate Alan Macias was third in the
same class. Macias had a bench of 175
pounds, a clean and jerk of 155 pounds
and a total of 330 pounds.
Jeronimo plans to let nothing keep him
from his date at Kissimmee.
"I am really focused (on lifting)," he
said. "This is my last year. Last year, I had
some problems with my health. I love lift-
ing. I love the way that they train you. The
coaches are nice.
"It would mean a lot (to get to state). I
still get nervous when I lift. I was hoping
to get first place but I got second."
He has a 3.5 grade point average so he
can do some heavy lifting in the classroom
as well.
South Sumter head coach Ty Lawrence
was happy with the work his lifters did
Wednesday


"It worked out like we thought it
would," Lawrence said.
South Sumter's Abner Ibarr took sec-
ond in the 129-pound class. He had a
bench press of 180 and a clean and jerk of
150 pounds for a 330-pound total.
Luis Romero won the 139-pound class.
He had a bench press of 215 pounds, a
clean and jerk of 170 pounds and a total
of 385 pounds.
Davey Vera was second in the 154-
pound class with a total of 410 pounds. He
had a bench of 205 pounds and a clean
and jerk of 205 pounds.
Xavier Story was third with a 400-
pound total. He had a bench press of 215
pounds and a clean and jerk of 185
pounds.
Davarreus Gibson was second in the
169-pound class with a 430-pound total.
He had a bench press of 240 pounds and a
clean and jerk of 190 pounds.
Mauhiayadin Burden was third in the


183-pound class with a 500-pound total.
He had a bench press of 280 pounds and a
clean and jerk of 220 pounds.
Joseph Mohler was fourth with a 445-
pound total in the same class. He had a
bench press of 250 pounds and a clean
and jerk of 195 pounds.
Keanu Neal was second in the 219-
pound class with a 550-pound total. He
had a bench press of 300 pounds and a
250-pound clean and jerk.
Jared Bates was third in the 238-pound
class with a 520-pound total. He had a
bench press of 305 pounds and a clean
and jerk of 215 pounds.
Darien Williston was fourth in the same
class with a 500-pound total. He had a
bench press of 295 pounds and a clean
and jerk of 205 pounds.
Brian Allen was fourth in the heavy-
weight class with a 605-pound total. He
had a bench press of 315 pounds and a
clean and jerk of 290 pounds.

NFL touchdown game football,


an iPad2 and golf!


Darrell Jackson, NFL Star,
walked in Continental Coun-
try Club, Wildwood, on Sat-
urday, March 10, ready to
golf. And to up the ante, he
was carrying an official NFL
football that he caught and
ran a touchdown while with
the Seattle Seahawks. This
was a symbol and maybe just
a "little intimidation" that
demonstrated his athletic
achievements. Players from
Sumter, surrounding coun-
ties and as far as New York
City gathered early to golf
and support Young Perform-
ing Artists (YPAs), Inc.'s 3rd
Annual 'Golf For Art'
fundraiser. Jimmy Daniels
held the winning ticket for
the football and Jimmie
Giles, NFL star, held the win-
ning ticket for the iPad2 co-
sponsored by The Villages'
Target.
As in previous years, the
tournament offered the
golfers a chance to hit a hole
in one at hole #13 for $5,000.
"No, no one hit it this year;
maybe next year we need to
up our ante to a car. A nice
convertible may make the
difference," said Beverly
Steele, YPAs, Inc. Founder.
There were other prizes for
the 1st and 2nd team; longest
drive and closest to the pin.
The 1st team members were
Donald Bisbee, Tim West,
Leroy Bisby and Bill Hopson;
the 2nd team consisted of
Bob Green, Jack Hughs,
Steve Wadosky and Michael
Wadosky; the longest drive
(hole #18) was Ronnie John-
son and the closest to pin
(hole #3) was Jimmy Daniels
41'10".
Team 1 received four
rounds of golf from Harbor


Hills with a Southern Wine,
Inc. supplied gift basket and
Team 2 received four rounds
of golf from Continental
Country Club with a AAA
Roofing supplied gift basket.
The longest drive and the
closest to the pin players re-
ceived two rounds of golf,
each, from Continental
Country Club. Many other
door prizes including six
travel vouchers for three
days and two nights hotel
visit from Links Worldwide;
dinning certificates from
Vic's Embers, Pizza Hut-
Wildwood, Dominoes-Wild-
wood, cup holders and pins
from Tri-County Lady-
Ballers, etc.
The day began with a rous-
ing rendition of the National
Anthem performed by
Ti'China Simmons, 16,
Sumter Christian School and
a YPAs, Inc. vocalist member
who, also, performed during
lunch. Just For You Catering,
a Sumter County-owned
business, served a delicious
breakfast and lunch with all
the trimmings. Darrell John-
son (DJ), owner of DJMas-
sage.com, was on hand to
loosen up the player's mus-
cles in hopes of hitting the
hole in one.
We are thankful to our
media Sponsor: Daily Com-
mercial, our Board members,
our volunteers and Conti-
nental Country Club for host-
ing the event. Also, our hole

I don't do puppies, well maybe with these exceptions


Linda
Graves

Society


Puppies Coming
Of Age
I don't do puppies! I love
to foster dogs, but I don't do
puppies! And yet, here
they are adorable pre-
cious little puppies!
What a surprise when we
discovered that my foster
dog was pregnant two days
before she gave birth. What
was I to do? And so we pre-
pared to have puppies.
The first two weeks of
their life, Mama Mia took
care of almost all the daily
chores of caring for her ba-


bies.
At 3/2 weeks old, the
puppies became more ac-
tive, taking their first baby
steps. Mama Mia started to
need a bit more help clean-
ing up after her puppies,
and so I became the maid
and helped with the clean-
ing chores.
At 4 weeks old, I enlisted
help from friends when the
puppies needed to be
wormed.
They were walking all
around their playpen now,
exploring their surround-
ings and discovering toys.
They have been intro-
duced to puppy food, so
that Mama Mia could get
some rest.
Each week as the pup-
pies grew, so did my daily
chores. Now eating puppy
food 4 times a day, the
adorable precious little
puppies have become the
adorable precious little


poopie puppies.
Magee, Monty, Moochie,
Milo, and Molly have
grown into friendly,
healthy, happy puppies.
They are active and playful
and love interacting with
people. They enjoy outside
time playing in the grass,
running and wrestling with
each other. They are after
all, adorable precious little
puppies!
Now that Magee, Monty,
Moochie, Milo, and Molly
are 8 weeks old, they have
become of age to move on.
They need foster homes
that will teach them good
puppy manners, and ex-
pose them to new experi-
ences. They need foster
homes that will give them
lots of love. And if their fos-
ter families wish, they can
adopt them.
Have you been looking
for the perfect puppy?
Contact the Humane Soci-


Pictured are Moochie, Monty, Magee, and Molly waiting for their new foster
homes. Milo (not pictured) has recently gone to his foster home.


ety/
SPCA of Sumter County
at 352-793-9117 and ask
about Magee, Monty,
Moochie, Milo, or Molly
Check their website at

Potential foster homes
will be checked to be sure
the puppies will be well
cared for Puppy vaccina-
tions and neuters and spay
will be taken care of by the
Humane Society/SPCA.


How exciting to bring a
new puppy into your fam-
ily! It is a huge commit-
ment, but your reward is
the joy and loyal compan-
ionship you puppy will give
you.

The Wildcats have been on the run this sea-
son, as they continued their pursuit of the dis-
trict title. The Wildwood Middle High School
baseball team took on St. John's for an 11-4 vic-
tory during spring break and then followed up
with a 7-4 win against Lake Weir the next Tues-
day, according to Coach Adam Cardona.
Last week it was Mt. Dora Bible and a 9-4 win
for the Cats, then last Friday night they took Pe-
niel Baptist 16-3.
Cardona said they pulled in freshman Brant
Ragan for three innings, giving him a chance to
play and getting some rest for the senior pitch-
ers during the game against Peniel.
"He did a great job not bad for his first var-
sity start," Cardona said, noting that Ragan
threw strikes.
They hit hard.
"We crushed them at the plate," he said, not-
ing that Sean Aten had two triples and Jake
Phillips was three for four, with four RBI's.
On Tuesday night, they were slated to play
Belleview and on Friday South Lake.
"Right now we are 10-2, 3-2 in the district,"
Cardona said.
"We play Pierson Taylor, The Villages, then
Pierson Taylor again," he said of their run in
their efforts to win the championship.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be
careful about doing someone a favor
when you don't know the full story
behind the request. Don't rely on
someone's unsubstantiated assur-
ances. Insist on all the facts before you
act.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
That workplace problem still needs
your attention before you finally can
close the book on it. Meanwhile, a
long-anticipated reunion gets closer to
becoming a happy reality.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You
might be demanding more from others
than they can give. Best advice: Have
a long and frank talk to determine what
the facts are. Tensions should abate as
the week winds down.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Aspects are favorable throughout this
week for making contacts that could be
important to your career plans. Mean-
while, an old friend offers the advice
you're seeking.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) It's time
to stop licking your wounds from past
mistakes. Get up and get going toward
your future. Loyal friends will be there
to help the Lion get back into rip-roar-
ing shape.
VIRGO (August 23 to September
22) Take time out to go over what's
expected of you before you begin your
new project. Otherwise, you run the
risk of pushing yourself harder than

you need to.
LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) An unusual request could put you
in an awkward position. Best advice:
Deal with it immediately. The longer
you delay, the more difficult it will be
to get out of it.
SCORPIO (October 23 to Novem-
ber 21) You should feel recharged and
ready for whatever your workaday
world holds for you. The same posi-
tive energy spills over into your per-
sonal relationships.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) A prospect might be less
than it appears to be. Like the Archer
in your sign, you always aim for the
truth. And this is no time to settle for
less than full disclosure.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) Start doing some seri-
ous thinking about a career move that
could entail more than just changing
job sites. Some lifestyle changes also
might be involved.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Feb-
ruary 18) With tensions easing at the
workplace, a more positive environ-
ment once again encourages the free
flow of ideas so typical of the always-
innovative Aquarian.
PISCES (February 19 to March
20) Show some of that usually hid-
den steel-strong Piscean backbone,
and stand up for yourself if you hope
to make a case for that promotion you
know you deserve.
BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy
doing new things and staying ahead
of the crowd. You would make a fine
sports coach or military leader.
