A special benefit is being planned in May to help a young Webster boy who is battling cancer. But the boys family is in need of assistance now, according to Brandie Walters, a Sumterville resident. Her late daughter Doshia Beltran, battled the same illness and shes launched an effort to help the family. Walters is hoping to raise money for 4-year-old Edgar Molina. The youngster has cancer of the nerve cells and is currently being treated at Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando, she said. The boy is one of four children of Eliseo Molina and Auroura Ramirez. The family does not speak English and Walters is doing her part to help raise much needed funds for the boys treatment. The boys father was in a car accident last week that destroyed the family vehiThursday, April 19, 2012Volume 126 Number 16Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY Gleaming and ready to show off Chrome and lights are the focus on First Gear, a show truck owned and designed by First Class Services in Kentucky and slated to head for Wildwood at the end of the month. The custom lighting is a brand new effort by local company MotorcoachFX. The Bushnell company is well established in the high-end motorcoach lighting much of their work is on celebrity coaches, including one owned by singer Tim McGraw, said company spokesman Jerry Daughtry. They typically do work for Fleetwood and Liberty. First Gear was the companys first big rig lighting work, but MotorcoachFX plans to expand their market and hopes to create a new standard for the truck market, as far as lighting, Daughtry said. For First Class Services, the truck was designed and built as a show/marketing truck to promote the business and is one of dozens that is expected to be on display during the three-day 75 Chrome Shop 14th Annual Truck Show in Wildwood.

Her only child, Tiffany, went out for a jog on Feb. 9, 1989, from her condo at the University of Florida in Gainesville and still hasnt been located. Her passion is to educate every parent so they arent as unprepared as she was by making sure each child is fingerprinted, DNA collected, lots of facial photographs or videos of the child, and the parents have a copy of their medical, dental, DNA and blood records.

The driver of a Sumter County school bus that became engulfed in fire during an accident last Friday is being credited with safely removing all 27 elementary school passengers from the bus without injury. The fire happened shortly before 3 p.m. on Friday, March 13, south of Bushnell, at the intersection of U.S. 301 and S.W. 102nd Road, south of St. Catherine Road. The southbound school bus stopped to leave off some students at the intersection, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. A truck pulling a trailer stopped behind the school bus but a third vehicle traveling behind the truck did not stop. The driver of that vehicle, Charles Perkins, 33, of Webster, was traveling about 55 mph in a 1993 Oldsmobile and was not able to stop in time behind the truck, according to a sheriffs office report.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. Sumter has very high wildfire risk conditions Currently the Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Sumter and Lake County regions are experiencing moderate to severe drought conditions. These extremely dry soil conditions combined with continued low relative humiditys and little rainfall has placed these five counties in a very high wildfire risk condition. The Florida Forest Service (FSS) is now issuing open burn authorizations under more stringent restrictions. Currently only the Lake County government has imposed an open burning ban of yard waste; however, if conditions worsen other counties may also consider the burn ban option. One of the best ways for county citizens to maintain open burning permission is to burn safely and not allow fires to escape their control. Although burn authorizations from the FSS are not required for yard waste burning where the debris pile size is less than 8 feet in diameter, we recommend the public refrain from open burning until conditions improve. If you elect to open burn yard waste the requirements are: You meet the required setbacks, the waste was generated on your property and the pile size is less than 8 feet in diameter, the fire is ignited after 8 a.m., it is attended at all time, and the fire is extinguished one hour prior to sunset. It is important that the resulting smoke does not create a hazard or nuisance. You can view the open burning laws at the Florida Forest Service web site, www.floridaforestservice.org or obtain copies from your local Forest Service or County Fire Rescue offices/stations. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for controlling the fire and ensuring that it will not present a threat to homes and neighborhoods. If for some unfortunate reason the fire escapes and requires the response of the fire departments or Florida Forest Services aide, you may be liable to pay for the costs of control and extinguishment of the fire. During this period of very high wildfire risk, please remain fire wise and safe. County Fire & EMS adds four firefighter/EMTs to staff Sumter County Fire & EMS celebrated the addition of four career Firefighter/EMTs to its staff during a Badge Ceremony held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 5 at the Countys Government Annex at 910 N. Main Street in Bushnell. The four new Firefighter/EMTs fill open positions created through employee turnover, and the departments previously announced addition of three Lieutenants. Those scheduled to receive their Firefighter/EMT Badge include: Michael Covell (Lake Mary) Justin Johnson (Maitland) Ralph Kaylor (Summerfield), and Michael Laming (Wildwood). During the latest recruitment process, Sumter County Fire & EMS received over 140 applicants who applied to join the department. The four who were eventually chosen all previously served the Sumter County residents as Reserve Firefighters. Each new Firefighter/EMT is required to complete a rigorous three-week orientation training regiment, which supplements the over 500 hours of Fire and EMS certification training they received prior to being hired. Commenting on the announcement, Chief Greek offered: Each of our new full-time Firefighter/EMTs have already proven their commitment to the organization of the community through their service as Reserve members. I am glad they are able to join the organization as career employees which will reduce the departments reliance on overtime, thus reducing costs for Sumter County residents. Those scheduled to receive their Firefighter/EMT Badge include: Michael Covell, Lake Mary; Justin Johnson, Maitland; Ralph Kaylor ,Summerfield; and Michael Laming, Wildwood. SUMTERVILLE 1389 S.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL19, 2012 Truly honored I would like to take a moment to express how truly honored our family was to have such excellent deputies escort the funeral procession for Louise Stanley on April 13. As the procession had a very, very long drive to Linden cemetery, I watched as these deputies stopped traffic at each intersection as any normal duty I have seen in the past. However, the difference that made these deputies stand out to me and my family was the amazing act of respect and dignity they showed as they exited their vehicles and bowed their heads as we passed. We are from Ft. Myers and I have honestly never experienced such respect and honor as we did with these deputies. While this may be normal to Sumter County deputies... it is not normal where most of us come from. I do not know their names but I would be grateful if you would pass along our gratitude. It honestly made me want to move to Sumter County. It is not often that we see people take time out of their day to pay the respect to a perfect stranger, but I have to tell you, people pulled to the side of the road and some actually got out of their vehicles and placed their hands over their hearts or saluted. People in Sumter County ROCK! It makes a person weep with joy to see that kind of behavior that was once a common thing to see. Again, thank you for your service. Amy Jackson Ft. MyersHelp neededThe Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County will be hosting three upcoming adoption events if interested adopters havent had a chance to meet many of their great adoptable animals. Join them on: Friday, April 20 at WVLG radio station at Lake Sumter Landing in the Villages from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; -on Saturday, April 21 to celebrate Earth Day from 10am till 2pm at their Lake Panasoffkee facility at 994 C.R. 529A, meet adoptable dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs and cockatiels, plus a large selection of plants for sale; -and there again on Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a celebration of their 30th anniversary serving Sumter Countys animals in need. Meet adoptable animals plus the Directors, volunteers and enjoy light refreshments and great door prizes! Giving rescued animals another change at a happy life through adoption is a wonderful way to help recognize Earth Day and being green. Anyone who attends the Societys latter two events and brings recyclable items such as used ink cartridges, aluminum cans (rinsed and crushed please), and old cell phones will receive a gift from the Society. What can you do to recognize Earth day and the HS/SPCAs 30 years of serving the community? You can help them with some ideas below. Many of them are ways to make a big difference in the lives of animals in need. You could ... collect 30 empty ink cartridges, old cell phones and/or aluminum cans to recycle, or collect 30 bags/cans of pet food to feed hungry animals, or collect 30 bales of hay to feed many of the rescued horses, or collect 30 blankets to help rescued animals have a warm safe place to sleep, or donate $30 towards the HS/SPCAs Green Animal Shelter Fund, or tell 30 friends and neighbors about the work of the HS/SPCA for the community, or volunteer with them for 30 hours this year! Stop by and see how you can help the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County and learn more about the green animal shelter. Visit their Facebook page, www.hsspca.org, call 352793-9117 for more information. Humane Society/SPCA Be careful with fires Sumter County is a high risk for wildfires as drought conditions continue through Central Florida. TheDepartment of Agriculture and Consumer Services is offering five tips for protecting homes during wildfire season. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service are trying to help Floridians protect themselves against the dangers of wildfire. The agencies remember the wildfires that raged through Florida in 1998, burning more than 500,000 acres and damaging or destroying 337 homes and other structures. Florida is unique in that it experiences a year-round wildfire season, with heightened wildfire activity during the spring months, said Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. Although we may receive sporadic rain, extended drought conditions are forecasted to persist throughout spring and into summer. Over the coming weeks and months, it is likely that Florida will experience very high to extreme wildfire danger due to these dry conditions. It is critical for Floridians to take steps to ensure their own safety. The departments Florida Forest Service manages more than one million acres of public forest land and protects over 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire. Since Jan. 1, more than 1,100 wildfires have burned nearly 20,000 acres in Florida. Most of these fires were caused by human carelessness. To prevent wildfires, follow these five simple steps: Check with local authorities for any temporary restrictions on burning yard waste Contain fires to an eight-foot diameter pile or noncombustible barrel at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from homes, 50 feet from paved public roads and 150 feet from other occupied buildings Do not burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 30 percent Never leave a fire unattended and make sure it is completely out before leaving Keep a shovel and water hose handy in case a small fire escapes containment In addition to the tips listed above, Floridians should also report any suspicious fires or fire activity to 911 or their local Florida Forest Service office. In 2011, the Florida Forest Service responded to more than 4,700 wildfires that burned over 220,000 acres, a 32 percent increase from the previous year. Firefighters saved more than 1,100 homes and business in Florida.

It was an amazing event, said Dave Napp, CEO of Carefree RV Resorts. We had acts that featured vocals, guitar, harmonica, clogging, yodeling and piano with vocal accompaniment. Kenny Channels, a Gatlinburg, Tenn. resident who is staying at Carefrees Riptide RV Resort in Key Largo, won the $5,000 grand prize with a vocal medley that included songs by George Strait and a ballad Channels wrote called Somebodys got to do it. Glenn Gillespie of Plattsburg, N.Y., who is staying at Carefree RV Resort in Daytona, won a second place prize of $500 plus two nights at Carefrees Pelican Motel in Marathon, Fla. in the Florida Keys for singing and playing the guitar to a song called Yodeling Cowboy. Ed Martin from Carefrees Sweetwater RV Resort in Zephyrillis won a seven-day Caribbean cruise through a random drawing, courtesy of OmniTours. Carefree itself covered the cost of the other prizes with Jacobsen Homes and Waste Management contributing $2,500 and $500, respectively, toward the $5,000 grand prize. Napp said snowbird interest in the talent show had been building for months. Competitions were initially held at 22 of Carefrees parks in Florida. The winners from those competitions then competed at Red Oaks Carefree RV Resort in Bushnell for the grand prize. It was really fun watching everyone compete, Napp said. Many of our parks videotaped their competitions and created parties around their events and just took a lot of pride in each winner. Many parks also rented buses and vans to bring up their customers to cheer their parks winner at the final competition. We initially thought we were only going to have about 600 spectators, but we wound up with more than 1,200. Carefree also treated all of the contestants and spectators to a free spaghetti dinner following the competition.

On Saturday, judging begins in the morning, with live entertainment, food and chrome vendors all day long, according to 75 Chrome Shops Kerri Farkus. Then on Sunday, its trophy time. While there is a fee for trucks to show, spectator admission is free and the public is welcome. As a matter of fact, the show typically draws thousands of spectators, including hundreds of bikers who are in Central Florida to attend Leesburgs Bike Week. The Pride and Polish is the top event competition with cleanest and most unique taking the win. The Wash and Shine competition was added, which is based mainly on presentation, allowing more drivers to compete. 75 Chrome Shops Jennilee Jowers said last years exhibitors were some of the top trucks since the show began. The event draws dozens of big rigs, from across the nation, some all the way from Canada, to show off their custom and chrome. The categories at the event included working and non-working combinations with trailers and without trailers. During the two-day event, owners and operators answer questions for the crowd and share stories on their travels across the nation. At night, they kick it up a notch and it becomes a literal light show, with thousands of lights along the massive rigs. 75 Chrome shop is located off I-75 at the Wildwood Turnpike Extension. The store itself is a showcase, with gloss and shine from wall to wall. They offer a wide variety of chrome accessories and the store combines all the facilities of a modern truck stop with service bays, a CB shop, showers, laundry facilities and game room. Owners Debbie and Billy Farkus created the 75 Chrome Pride and Polish Annual Truck Show to give drivers a venue to display their rigs. The address is 419 East S.R. 44, just west of the intersection of S.R. 44 (Gulf to Atlantic Highway) and Interstate 75 (exit 329). For More information, call the shop at 352-748-0330.

SHOW continued from Page 1 the road where his car slide through the grass and crashed into the bus, the report states. Perkins had to swerve to miss hitting a woman who was standing on the shoulder apparently waiting to pick up a child. The car became wedged under the rear of the bus and the collision ignited both vehicles which eventually were engulfed in flames, the report states. Perkins was cited for following too closely behind another vehicle, Caruthers said. In the meantime, all 27 students had been removed from the bus immediately following the accident by bus driver Penny Peg, said School Supt. Rick Shirley, who arrived at the scene shortly after the accident. Peg was able to get the students to safety before the bus was eventually devoured by flames. She deserves special kudos for her actions, Shirley said. She was magnificent. Peg made sure the students, in grades from kindergarten through fifth grade, were quietly taken off the bus and then she calmly took them away from the accident site and collected them under an oak tree, Shirley said. Initial reports are that no one was injured in accident, according to a county press release. The fire started in the rear of the bus and then consumed the remainder of it, Shirleysaid. It was completely burned from the back all the way to the firewall in the front. Shirley said some people said it was an unlucky event for Friday the 13th. But this was a good Friday the 13th, he said. With that kind of wreck and that kind of damage and no injuries, thats not a bad Friday the 13th at all. We can always buy another bus. But it was a good day, that bus driver got all those kids off safely. Shirley said he has nothing but praise for the way emergency and fire personnel dealt with the situation. It was just one of those terrible accidents that you wish didnt happen, but given the circumstances, it all went well. BUScontinued from Page 1 All 27 Webster Elementary School students were removed from the school bus and taken to safety. The school bus driver is being credited for her actions during the accident.

In his closing remarks, Reverend Robert Tom Dixon asked the early worshippers, have not your heart and soul been touched and uplifted this early morning? Are you glad that you sacrificed to rise early and hear such a powerful message? To which, a resounding hand praise, Amen and hallelujah was the response. The service also featured the beautiful soul stirring songs delivered by Ebenezers own songstress, Sister Juneast Mallard. She was accompanied by Ebenezers outstanding musical team of Bro.

The invitation is open and those planning to attend are encouraged to invite a friend. A columnist for the Sumter County Times and Citrus County Chronicle, Kennedy also serves as religion editor and feature writer for the daily paper. She is a Christian author and inspirational speaker. Life is hard, but God is good. And Hes full of surprises, like calling me to a speaking ministry. Ill never forget the day. I said something like, God, Ill do anything for you except.... You see, speaking before an audience was the one thing I thought I could never, ever do. Since then Hes been out to prove me wrong, that I can indeed do all things through Christ. As a result, for the past several years Ive thoroughly enjoyed being proven wrong as I seek to convey the message that His love and grace are readily available to all who are in Christ. Kennedy currently lives in Inverness, where shes active in her church and community. A Christian since age 23, she said she surrendered her life to Jesus Christ in the ladies room of the supply warehouse at Loring AFB, Maine. She would love to tell you more about that. Married to Barry Kennedy since 1975, she said she still thinks hes awfully cute. They have two daughters: Alison (grown and married) and Laura, a twenty-something student in Charlotte, N.C. (Theyre cute, too.) Known for her honesty and gentle humor, Kennedy says, I love my life. Im incredibly average, basically clueless, always self-centered. I love coconut cake, soft blue jeans, sushi, sappy love songs and knowing that theres no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I also love to laugh and love sharing my gift of laughter and inspiration. A member of Advanced Writers and Speakers Association, Nancy has appeared on radio programs such as Family Life Today and Revive Our Hearts. Most recently, Kennedy was chosen as one of four monthly Walk With Me bloggers for Todays Christian Woman at www.todayschristianwoman.c om. Her books include: Girl on a Swing, Prayers God Always Answers, Move Over Victoria I Know the Real Secret, When He Doesnt Believe, When Perfect Isnt Enough, Between Two Loves, and Lipstick Grace. What others say about Nancy Kennedy:If you like Nancy Kennedys books, youll love her as a speaker. She is real and funny and down-to-earth. In the midst of relating her real-life experiences with humor and poignancy, shell bring Gods truth for your life into the midst of your gathering. We strongly encourage you to invite Nancy to speak to your group. Laura Parker, Associate Pastor and Womens Bible Study Facilitator, Mt. Zion United Methodist Church, Marietta, GA Nancy Kennedy speaks the truth with such genuineness. She is an unpretentious icon of unpretentiousness! In a world where women are virtually taught to wear masks, Nancy points us to the gospel, the only place where we can be safe to be who we really are. She speaks to every womans heart that longs to truly be loved, rescued, and cared for by a faithful lover and Nancy knows well the only faithful One is Jesus Christ. Her books and spoken words take aim to point us to Him alone. Reina Cherry, Coaches Honor, a ministry to coaches and coaches wives With refreshing honesty, Nancy has a been there done that approach to ministry and teaching as opposed to a you should do X if you want God to X approach. There is nothing preachy about her. She comes across as a fellow sojourner, and I like that about her and her writing. Thats what makes her stand out. I also think she has a way of pulling the hilarious out of the every day. Thats a good trait.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL19, 2012, PAGE9 TAMMY FORE/Sumter County TimesAfernee Martin, 23, is shown here during his senior season with the Wildwood Wildcats, with Dontell Norris, 20, as his blocker. The action was during a game against South Sumter High School. He is a quiet kid, but when you watch film his play speaks for itself, number 23 was all over the field, all game long, said Head Coach Matt LaBranche. Varsity team members are shown. They are (front row, left to right) Victoria Medina, Shelby Spruill, Katie Nobles, Taylor Wiley, Desyree Reynolds, Mariah Guarino; (back row, left to right): Brittani Grady, Ticie Hagins, Skye Davenport, Chanara McMiller, and Amber Hancock. The team was coached by Tammy Skipper, Heather Kadur and Marc Johnson. ASHLEY GRADY/Special to the TimesTaylor Wiley is shown sliding into home to score. SUMTER sports Anfernee Martin signed with Ave Maria University to play football next season. He could be playing on either side of the ball. He was a RB/CB for us this past season. Shown, (front row, left to right) are: Wildwood High School Principal Richard Hampton, Martin, Danzell Williams; (standing, left to right): Coach Mike Hensley, Coach Matt LaBranche. Afernee Martin, a running back and center back for the Wildwood Wildcats, earned a scholarship to the Naples Ave Maria University this year. Ave Maria is getting a quality individual who has been one of the most coachable kids we have ever had at Wildwood, said head coach Matt LaBranche. Martin, number 23 for the Cats, began playing football in the seventh grade. My friends and I decided we all wanted to play during that seventh grade year, he said, adding that his cousins are the ones responsible for getting him into the game at a young age. Martin expects excellence and nothing less, from himself. I try to put my all into my playing. He is a quiet kid, but when you watch film his play speaks for itself, number 23 was all over the field, all game long, LaBranche said. Anfernee is a very skilled player that never came off the field. He will be very hard to replace because he started on both sides of the ball and played all of our special teams. Martin still recalls his very first touchdown and his very first interception for a touchdown. He was sent on a go route and caught the pass. The ball was tipped and I snatched it out of the air and returned it for a touchdown, he said. His past stats include five offensive touchdowns, 35 tackles, one defensive touchdown and three interceptions and Martin sees his strength as his speed. He also has a philosophy, Never give up on something you love. Of earning the scholarship, Martin said he feels, Great! Not many players actually earn an athletic scholarship. The son of Janice Smith and Leroy Martin, he said his plans are to graduate college in four years with a business degree. He has one sister, Lateefah Martin. Wildwoods Martin signs with college BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer The normally potent Wildwood High offense seemed to take Friday night off. The Wildcats (15-3 overall, 5-3 in Class 1A District 8 play) scored two seventh inning runs but came up short in a 3-2 district loss to Pierson Taylor at the Wildwood Field. Sean Hensley, who was 2-for-3 Friday, doubled off Pierson Taylor pitcher Kody Heston to lead off the last inning. Brad Ragan then singled to score Hensley. Two outs later, Nate White reached on a fielders choice. He scored on Jalen Goodens single to center. That was all the offense Wildwood could muster. Starting pitcher Garrett Hurst (6-2) was saddled with the loss. He allowed two runs on a fielders choice in the first inning and the winning run scored on a throwing error in the fourth inning. He allowed six hits, struck out five and walked one in the loss. Wildwood had six hits and Heston struck out six. Garrett admitted that he didnt have his best stuff tonight, said Wildwood High head coach Adam Cardona. We had that one rough first inning that kind of hurt us a little bit. He settled down after that. He didnt have the stuff he had all season. The coach said this wasnt a normal game for the Wildcats. We normally are strong hitting, Cardona said. We werent patient and disciplined at the plate. We swung at a lot of bad pitches. It wasnt the team we have had all season. Shawn Cheesy Aten has led the team with a batting average over .500. One through nine, we have been solid, Cardona said. Tonight, we were dead at the plate. This is definitely a game we should have won, Cardona said. I tip my hat to Pierson Taylor. They did everything they could to win that ball game. We have to show up next game and realize we are not invincible. Wildwood will have to face Pierson Taylor there in a district tournament match up. Wildwood diamond boys come up short LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent Its that time of year again: spring. Landowners, homeowner associations and sportsmen look for private fish farms from which to buy Floridas favorite freshwater game fish, the largemouth bass, to stock in their ponds or lakes. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wants to remind those who live south and east of the Suwannee River that, legally, they may purchase and stock only authenticated Florida largemouth bass. These bass are from fish farmers or aquaculturists whose fish have been genetically tested and authenticated by the FWC as pure Florida largemouth bass. Anglers come to our state from all over the world to catch trophy Florida largemouth bass, so the FWC is doing everything possible to protect the genetic purity of this ecologically and economically important subspecies of bass. Currently, no out-of-state farms meet FWC requirements, and only two instate fish farms meet the requirements. Those are Florida Fish Farms Inc. (352-793-4224) and Shongaloo Fisheries (352-4681251). Both are registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and sell authenticated, pure Florida largemouth bass. Violation of this rule is a criminal offense and also may result in federal prosecution under the Lacey Act if fish are transported across state lines. Civil penalties can reach $5,000 per fish. The South Sumter Lady Raider JV softball team ended their season April 4th with a 9-8 win over Forest High School in Ocala. Their overall record for the season was eight wins and three loses. Behind the mound the entire season was pitcher Skye Davenport, executing several games where there were no hits. Other teams members include Victoria Medina, Shelby Spruill, Katie Nobles, Taylor Wiley, Desyree Reynolds, Mariah Guarino, Brittani Grady, Ticie Hagins, Chanara McMiller and Amber Hancock. The team was coached by Tammy Skipper, Heather Kadur and Marc Johnson. Lady Raiders JV score with a win for season Stocking bass? Make sure theyre legal

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL19, 2012, PAGE11 Nonprofit Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has announced their Pet Peace of Mind program is now fully operational bringing peace of mind to Lake and Sumter patients who own pets by funding pet food, litter and routine vaccines. The program also provides pet-loving volunteers to assist with dog walking, poop detail and transportation to vet appointments plus visiting the pets owners at home, nursing facilities or at the nonprofits hospice house. Phyllis Anderson and her husband Dick moved to The Villages in 2005 hoping to enjoy their retirement years with new neighbors and some old friends that shared part of their working years. They also enjoyed their golf cart, golf environment, and their rescued Cavalier King Charles dog named Spencer... but all that changed just a year and a half later. Dick was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and rapidly went from bad to worse. By summertime he was admitted to Cornerstones Hospice House, Phyllis and Spencer were with him everyday to visit. When the end came, both Phyllis and Spencer deeply grieved. For Phyllis, the hospice chaplain was a tremendous source of comfort. For Spencer, the trauma was bewildering. He was angry Dick was gone. Phyllis and Spencer comforted each other as the weeks passed and sought out activities they could enjoy together. Phyllis wanted to express her appreciation for the wonderful care she felt from Cornerstone Hospice and decided to give back by becoming a volunteer. When a friend told Phyllis about the Dynamic Dog Club she signed up immediately for the free class for Spencer to become a therapy dog. Bev Johnson teaches this certification class and also had an interest in the hospice program. Her interest in a therapy dog program began with an encounter in an Alzheimers facility. The final stages of this disease left her mom in a catatonic-like state. She had not spoken in several months. During one visit, Bev saw a therapy dog visit the parlor and watched as her mothers eyes began to track the dog. When the handler brought the dog close, her mother reached out to pet its head and put her arms around the dogs neck asking the handler, Whats her name? For a brief few minutes Bev saw her mother smile and come back from her foggy faraway world. The joy Bev experienced brought the clear resolution that when she retired she would have a therapy dog to bring this joy to another. Bev purchased a miniature poodle puppy and began training, reading-up on the subject of therapy dogs, and participating in the Dynamic Dog Club. Phyllis and Bev met in the therapy dog class Bev was teaching. After Phyllis passed all of her testing, she requested to be assigned to visit at The Villages Hospice House. Bev then learned that Phyllis would need to attend the 16-hour training which was available in Sumterville at Cornerstones Lane-Purcell Hospice House. Bev and Phyllis went to the training together where they met Lisa Gray, the volunteer manager for Cornerstone Hospice. Lisa Grays long time dream of combining her hospice heart with her passion for pets was thrilled to receive a call from an enthusiastic Bev Johnson, president of the Dynamic Dog Club. Bev had a list of 14 pet therapists interested in becoming Cornerstone Hospice volunteers. The larger plan came together when Cornerstone Hospice was introduced to Banfield Charitable Trusts program Pet Peace of Mind. This program was developed by Banfield specifically for not-for-profit hospices to help keep patients and their pets together longer. Cornerstone Hospice understands the importance of family members with fur and feathers. In May 2011, Banfield awarded Cornerstone Hospice a $5,000 grant and Pet Peace of Mind program materials needed to begin. Cornerstone is the first hospice in the state of Florida to be awarded this program! Cornerstone Hospice can now bring peace of mind to our patients by funding pet food, litter, and routine vaccines to those patients who are in need during this difficult time of their life. Cornerstone Hospice will also provide volunteers to assist with dog walking, poop detail and transportation to vet appointments, or to visit their owners in nursing facilities or one of the nonprofits hospice houses. The positive results of the Pet Peace of Mind program will help pet owners and hospice patients learn the importance of making a plan to assist their fourlegged or feathered family members. Cornerstone Hospice will attempt to find homes for pets who are grieving the loss of their owners when family and friends are unable to take them in. Contact Hospice for specialized training If you would like more information or to register for one of Hospices volunteer training classes please contact Cornerstone Hospice volunteer manager Lisa Gray at 352742-6806 or volunteer specialist Kim Carter at 352-455-6081 or 352-5695305 or you may call toll free at 888-728-6234.

Three sheriff cars escorted the 50-seater bus full of Special Olympics athletes and volunteers, all of whom were wearing the special Torch Run Tshirts.

Large Torch Run banners were on both sides on the bus Two sheriff golf carts and volunteer Brian Farley escorted torch runners, Torey Henderson and Jessica Kirby both from Bushnell, and Amy Miller and Tom Stinton from the Villages across the 150-yard polo field caring the Special Olympics Flame of Hope. Johanna Hannah, sports coordinator, managed the waves of runners, walkers, golf cart with those who needed to ride, and Equestrian group, led by coach Rose Marie Martin, carrying their banner so they safely follow the torch runners across the field. In perfect weather, as the athletes and volunteers crossed the field, they waved at the spectators with their American Flags. Lyn Doll, fundraising coordinator, met the athletes on the spectator side of the field, encouraging them to wave to the crowd. The polo spectators gave the athletes a long standing ovation as they crossed the polo field. Doll and other volunteers helped athletes board seven decorated golf cats waiting to carry everyone quickly and safely back to the bus.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL19, 2012, PAGE17 000B6MP Critter chatter Stay alert gator mating season is under way It is gator mating season again. This is the time of year when the Florida alligators become more active and on the move. I know that this time of year, every year, I write about gator safety. Native Floridians have learned to co-exist with the local wildlife, but for as many years as I have lived in Florida, I seem to be more cautious then most. Could it be that growing up in the New York City suburbs, we were never exposed to such wild critters? Whatever the reason for my slightly over cautious behavior, I do love living in rural Florida and enjoy the wide variety of wildlife. March through September, Florida alligators can be found moving from swamp to swamp or pond to pond, perhaps in search of a mate or a meal! They are more dominant and aggressive during mating season. July through September mama gators will aggressively guard their nests and youngsters. They camouflage so well in their natural surroundings that it can be easy to not notice them from a safe distance. This is my worst fear: Walking my dogs and encountering a gator! Now I know not to walk by a body of water, but when traveling from one pond to the next, the gators are surly roaming on land. Small animals are meals for gators, but it seems to me that they have a sweet tooth for dogs. And so every morning and every afternoon, as I walk my dogs, I am constantly on guard, searching the sides of the roads and the brush for any sign of the states resident reptile. My walks are no longer relaxing and enjoyable, but stressful and guarded as I vigilantly keep a look out for gators. My husband, Ronnie, of course thinks I am a wee bit paranoid. Growing up in the country is second nature to him, but not so for this city transplant. And so, here is my yearly warning to all pet parents. Watch out for gators! Do not walk your pets near bodies of water. Walk during daylight hours when gator activity is not as active. Stay alert! Alligators are an important part of Floridas ecosystem. Armed with knowledge and keeping safety in mind, we can coexist and marvel at the beautiful landscape and wildlife we have here in Florida.

PAGE20SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL19, 2012 000B5AZ 000B5AW 000B5AY 000B5B2 FAMILY FEATURES Chef Mary Ann Esposito, host of the PBS television show Ciao Italia, knows all about the joys and benefits of cooking with olive oil. Olive oil is 100 percent natural, contains no cholesterol, trans fats, sodium or sugar. It adds a delicious splash of flavor to any recipe. As a rule of thumb, she says, substitute an equal amount of olive oil for other cooking oils. Here are some more of her tips for eating deliciously with Filippo Berio Olive Oil:Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Has a rich, full flavor, fragrant aroma, low acidity and deep greenish-gold color. Its ideal for salad dressings, marinades, sauces, roasting potatoes and dipping bread. Drizzle it over air-popped popcorn for a healthiersnack,anduseitinChefMaryAnnsrecipeforMarinatedCarrot,Caper and Sweet Red Pepper Salad.Olive Oil: Has a rich golden color; perfectly balanced with a mild flavor. Its ideal as a base for sauces and for sauting meat, poultry, fish or vegetables. Try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Eggplant Rolls.Extra Light Olive Oil: Has a subtle taste and light bouquet, which allows natural flavors of food to come through. It has a high smoke point, which makes it perfect for frying, stir-frying and baking. For a great break fast, use it to scramble eggs. For dinner, try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Devilish Chicken. Visit www.filippoberio.com and www.ciaoitalia.com for more healthy, delizioso recipes from Chef Mary Ann. Marinated Carrot, Caper and Sweet Red Pepper SaladServes 4 Marinade 1/3 cup Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 1/4 teaspoons salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons salt-packed capers, well rinsed Salad 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch-long matchstick pieces 1 tablespoon salt 2 large sweet red bell peppers cut into thin, 2-inch-long strips 1 cup thinly sliced fennel bulb 1/4 cup minced flat leaf parsley 2 tablespoons minced mint Combine all marinade ingredients in a 12 x 9-inch rectangular glass or ceramic dish. Mix well. Set aside. Fill a 12to 14-inch saut pan three-quarters full with water. Add carrots and salt. Bring to a boil and cook until a knife tip easily pierces carrots. Drain in colander and transfer to dish with marinade. Toss well. Add peppers and fennel and toss again. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour, tossing occasionally to meld the flavors. Just before serving, toss parsley and mint into salad. Serve at room temperature. Eggplant RollsServes 8 1 large eggplant (7 to 8 inches long), stem removed, cut into 8 1/4-inch-thick lengthwise slices 2 tablespoons Filippo Berio Olive Oil 2/3 cup minced fresh oregano or mint 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1/2 cup pine nuts 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce 1 cup toasted bread crumbs, made from stale bread Chefs Secret: Purchase eggplants that are very shiny, have intact stem tops, show no bruising or soft spots and feel heavy. Preheat oven to 350F, or fire up the grill. Brush eggplant slices on both sides with olive oil and place in single layers on slightly oiled rimmed baking sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes, or just until soft. Set aside to cool. Alternatively, grill eggplant slices on both sides until they soften and grill marks appear. Mix oregano (or mint), salt, pepper and pine nuts together in a bowl. Spread a couple of tablespoons of the mixture along length of each eggplant slice, and then roll slices into bundles. Spread 1/2 cup tomato sauce in the base of a 12 x 9-inch casserole dish. Place eggplant bundles in rows in the dish and spread remaining sauce evenly over top. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake 5 minutes longer. Serve hot and sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Chef Mary Ann Esposito is an accom plished cookbook author and the creator and host of Ciao Italia, the longest-running cooking series on television.Devilish ChickenServes 4 1 3 1/2 to 4-pound free-range, organic chicken, butterflied 1/4 cup Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil Fine sea salt Freshly ground black pepper Cayenne pepper or dried hot red pepper flakes 1 cup dry white wine Lemon wedges To butterfly chicken, place it on a plastic cutting board, breast side down. With kitchen shears or a boning knife, cut along both sides of backbone and remove and discard the bone or save for stock. Turn chicken over skin side up and flatten it by pressing down with hands or a meat pounder. Coat chicken completely with olive oil, then season with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Transfer chicken to a dish, cover, and marinate for several hours. This step can be done the day before. Preheat grill. When coals are white or a gas grill temperature reaches 500F, place chicken on grill, breast side down. Cook, turning frequently, and keeping the fire under control so as not to burn the chicken. About 10 minutes into grilling, begin basting chicken with wine. Continue basting every 10 minutes. The chicken is cooked when a meat thermometer inserted into the thigh bone registers between 175F and 180F. Transfer chicken to a cutting board, and cut into serving pieces. Serve hot with lemon wedges and a squirt of lemon juice. Use your fingers, not a fork, to eat.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMESThursday, April 19, 2012 G11 G2Thursday, April 19, 2012SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES Blessings shape Carpet Depot philosophy Terri and Mallory Blessings focus on education rather than making a sale at their Carpet Depot and More Store on Market Street in Bushnell. They offer sales and installation on retail flooring and window treatments and installation supplies. The mother and daughter team opened their Bushnell location six years ago, but have 12 years experience in flooring through a store they own in Tavares. Our daughter decided she wanted to come into business with us and thats when we purchased the local store, said mom Terri. They decided to grow the family business here in Bushnell. They see the flooring business as an opportunity to help people and be creative. Thats definitely what drew Mallory into it, Terri said of her daughters desire to get started in the business. They offer design services as well as providing both product and installation. Customers handpick materials and colors, which are then used for the final design. As for their business philosophy, its people first. We stand behind the materials that we sell and install, Blessings said, explaining that they supply only goods that the manufacturers will stand behind. If the manufacturer wont stand behind the product, it wont be supplied at Carpet Depot and More, she said. We would rather lose a sale than put in a product that will fail and cause a customer dissatisfaction. We look at the needs and wants of the customer and point them in the right direction. In other words, we care. Whats the best way to define their business and customer service? Call me. We support our community and we hope and pray that it comes back to us, she said, noting that they were relying on their Christian faith to guide them. Women-owned, the Bushnell store is a state certified minority business. Carpet Depot and More is located at 303 N. Market Street. The store is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays. For more information call the store at 352 4003. For local lawyer James Wade, success is the key its the outcome he wants in each case and the end result for each of the clients he represents. He has come up against government entities, corporations and individuals around the state and nation. Hes represented clients in cases against most of the top law firms in the state of Florida and maintains a high success rate. In the courtroom and the boardroom, Wades success is what his clients are looking for in an attorney. Life is complicated, with many conflicting issues such as education, employment, family, children, housing and money for everyday things, like food. Life is a series of hurdles and the challenge is to keep your head up and move forward, Wade said. Explaining the firm motto, Overcoming the Hurdles of Life, in relation to serving his clients, Wade said its identifying the obstacle, determining a strategy and then engaging the tools and personnel to reach the goal. For nearly 30 years, Wade has been assisting clients in Sumter County and throughout Florida to recognize and overcome their hurdles. Some cases are a pleasure everyone likes to get a new home. Other cases are more difficult working with families who have lost a loved one through illness or accident adds a layer of emotion to the case. His experience includes real estate cases, nursing home neglect, personal injury, aviation law, eminent domain, wrongful death, civil litigation and probate administration. In real estate hes handled everything from helping a young couple purchase their first home to coordinating the sale of commercial business property when the owners retire. He has represented clients in cases that range from easement issues, boundary disputes and mortgage foreclosures, to help with estate planning decisions, probate administration to distribute the estate of a friend or family member and simple wills. Unfortunately, some cases are the result of tragedy such as auto accidents or abuse of the elderly in nursing homes, he said of the personal injury and nursing home neglect cases. Wade is a sustaining member of the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association (LPBA) and currently president of the Sumter County Bar Association. From those early years in practice, Wade has worked to hone his skill and expand the services his firm is able to provide. Recently he began working with clients concerning eminent domain issues and rights-of-way acquisition by the Florida Department of Transportation (DOT). His network of friends and business associates, add to the life experience and education that have led to his successes both in the courtroom and out. Graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Tampa in 1979, Wade earned his Juris Doctorate of Law from the University of Florida in 1983, then returned to Sumter County to help area residents with challenging legal matters, including: criminal defense civil litigation wrongful death nursing home abuse aviation law* personal injury real estate probate administration Education, Education, life experience life experienceand success and success Carpet Depot & More Carpet Depot & More Carpet Hardwood Laminates Vinyl Tile Area Rugs Binding Remnants Blinds Shutters Call Today!

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMESThursday, April 19, 2012 G9 G4Thursday, April 19, 2012SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES Group practice offers comprehensive dental services It was just over three years ago the Bushnell Family Dentistry and Cosmetics moved into a brand-new state-of-the-art facility at the corner of U.S. 301 and C.R. 542 in Bushnell. Their success comes from offering comprehensive dental services, including dental specialist services at one location. That makes dental treatment more efficient for our patients and results in the need for fewer appointments, said Patient Treatment Coordinator Dana Kimble. Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is a group practice with three general dentists, an oral surgeon, a periodontist and an orthodontist. According to Kimble, Our dental team can provide implant dentistry services, oral and periodontal surgery, sedation dentistry and orthodontics (braces) to our patients. This is in addition to family and cosmetic dentistry services which include crowns, veneers, bridges, fillings, whitening procedures, cleaning, dentures, parcels, extractions, and endodontics (root canals). In addition to a large team of general dentists and dental specialists, the practice is also very high-tech. All radiographs (X rays) taken at the practice are digital. This resulted in a much lower exposure of the patient to radiation than the traditional film techniques. Additionally, digital x-rays are more environmentally friendly since chemicals are not used to process films. Intraoral cameras are used by the practice to allow the patient to actually see every aspect of the tooth, including the front, back and side. The practice uses these cameras to educate patients about the dental health and condition of the teeth. A laser is used to perform many soft tissue surgical procedures. One big advantage of the laser is that it eliminates the need for sutures after the procedure. The practice even has the E4D system to make all porcelain crowns, onlays and veneers right in the office. The system uses laser technology to scan a prepared tooth, impression or a model of the tooth. A lab technician uses a sophisticated computer program to design the restoration and the restoration is fabricated on site. With the E4D system that Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry uses, a patient can leave the office a few hours later with their final restoration, rather than a temporary restoration. According to Kimble, Our patients love the fact that with the E4D system they can leave our office with their permanent crown, veneer or onlays on the same day that the tooth was prepared. This is especially beneficial to our busy patients who find it difficult to take time off from work. High technology is also used to increase patient comfort at the practice. Each treatment room is equipped with a flat screen television and each of the leather dental chairs has a built-in back massage device. Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is located at 65 C.R. 542 W. in Bushnell, FL. The location is about one mile north of downtown Bushnell, at the corner of U.S. Hwy. 301 and C.R. 542 W. The office contact telephone number is 352-569-0100 and their website is www.bushnelldentistry.com. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. The practice is accepting new patients. Ciggys 4 Less Roll your own.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMESThursday, April 19, 2012 G11 G2Thursday, April 19, 2012SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES Blessings shape Carpet Depot philosophy Terri and Mallory Blessings focus on education rather than making a sale at their Carpet Depot and More Store on Market Street in Bushnell. They offer sales and installation on retail flooring and window treatments and installation supplies. The mother and daughter team opened their Bushnell location six years ago, but have 12 years experience in flooring through a store they own in Tavares. Our daughter decided she wanted to come into business with us and thats when we purchased the local store, said mom Terri. They decided to grow the family business here in Bushnell. They see the flooring business as an opportunity to help people and be creative. Thats definitely what drew Mallory into it, Terri said of her daughters desire to get started in the business. They offer design services as well as providing both product and installation. Customers handpick materials and colors, which are then used for the final design. As for their business philosophy, its people first. We stand behind the materials that we sell and install, Blessings said, explaining that they supply only goods that the manufacturers will stand behind. If the manufacturer wont stand behind the product, it wont be supplied at Carpet Depot and More, she said. We would rather lose a sale than put in a product that will fail and cause a customer dissatisfaction. We look at the needs and wants of the customer and point them in the right direction. In other words, we care. Whats the best way to define their business and customer service? Call me. We support our community and we hope and pray that it comes back to us, she said, noting that they were relying on their Christian faith to guide them. Women-owned, the Bushnell store is a state certified minority business. Carpet Depot and More is located at 303 N. Market Street. The store is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays. For more information call the store at 352 4003. For local lawyer James Wade, success is the key its the outcome he wants in each case and the end result for each of the clients he represents. He has come up against government entities, corporations and individuals around the state and nation. Hes represented clients in cases against most of the top law firms in the state of Florida and maintains a high success rate. In the courtroom and the boardroom, Wades success is what his clients are looking for in an attorney. Life is complicated, with many conflicting issues such as education, employment, family, children, housing and money for everyday things, like food. Life is a series of hurdles and the challenge is to keep your head up and move forward, Wade said. Explaining the firm motto, Overcoming the Hurdles of Life, in relation to serving his clients, Wade said its identifying the obstacle, determining a strategy and then engaging the tools and personnel to reach the goal. For nearly 30 years, Wade has been assisting clients in Sumter County and throughout Florida to recognize and overcome their hurdles. Some cases are a pleasure everyone likes to get a new home. Other cases are more difficult working with families who have lost a loved one through illness or accident adds a layer of emotion to the case. His experience includes real estate cases, nursing home neglect, personal injury, aviation law, eminent domain, wrongful death, civil litigation and probate administration. In real estate hes handled everything from helping a young couple purchase their first home to coordinating the sale of commercial business property when the owners retire. He has represented clients in cases that range from easement issues, boundary disputes and mortgage foreclosures, to help with estate planning decisions, probate administration to distribute the estate of a friend or family member and simple wills. Unfortunately, some cases are the result of tragedy such as auto accidents or abuse of the elderly in nursing homes, he said of the personal injury and nursing home neglect cases. Wade is a sustaining member of the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association (LPBA) and currently president of the Sumter County Bar Association. From those early years in practice, Wade has worked to hone his skill and expand the services his firm is able to provide. Recently he began working with clients concerning eminent domain issues and rights-of-way acquisition by the Florida Department of Transportation (DOT). His network of friends and business associates, add to the life experience and education that have led to his successes both in the courtroom and out. Graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of Tampa in 1979, Wade earned his Juris Doctorate of Law from the University of Florida in 1983, then returned to Sumter County to help area residents with challenging legal matters, including: criminal defense civil litigation wrongful death nursing home abuse aviation law* personal injury real estate probate administration Education, Education, life experience life experienceand success and success Carpet Depot & More Carpet Depot & More Carpet Hardwood Laminates Vinyl Tile Area Rugs Binding Remnants Blinds Shutters Call Today!

The youngster has cancer of the nerve cells and is currently being treated at Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando, she said. The boy is one of four children of Eliseo Molina and Auroura Ramirez. The family does not speak English and Walters is doing her part to help raise much needed funds for the boys treatment.

CPEA was the second largest missing childrens organization in the U.S. based on the number of active missing childrens cases. Her only child, Tiffany, went out for a jog on Feb. 9, 1989, from her condo at the University of Florida in Gainesville and still hasnt been located. Her passion is to educate every parent so they arent as unprepared as she was by making sure each child is fingerprinted, DNA collected, lots of facial photographs or videos of the child, and the parents have a copy of their medical, dental, DNA and blood records.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. Sumter has very high wildfire risk conditions Currently the Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Sumter and Lake County regions are experiencing moderate to severe drought conditions. These extremely dry soil conditions combined with continued low relative humiditys and little rainfall has placed these five counties in a very high wildfire risk condition. The Florida Forest Service (FSS) is now issuing open burn authorizations under more stringent restrictions. Currently only the Lake County government has imposed an open burning ban of yard waste; however, if conditions worsen other counties may also consider the burn ban option. One of the best ways for county citizens to maintain open burning permission is to burn safely and not allow fires to escape their control. Although burn authorizations from the FSS are not required for yard waste burning where the debris pile size is less than 8 feet in diameter, we recommend the public refrain from open burning until conditions improve. If you elect to open burn yard waste the requirements are: You meet the required setbacks, the waste was generated on your property and the pile size is less than 8 feet in diameter, the fire is ignited after 8 a.m., it is attended at all time, and the fire is extinguished one hour prior to sunset. It is important that the resulting smoke does not create a hazard or nuisance. You can view the open burning laws at the Florida Forest Service web site, www.floridaforestservice.org or obtain copies from your local Forest Service or County Fire Rescue offices/stations. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for controlling the fire and ensuring that it will not present a threat to homes and neighborhoods. If for some unfortunate reason the fire escapes and requires the response of the fire departments or Florida Forest Services aide, you may be liable to pay for the costs of control and extinguishment of the fire. During this period of very high wildfire risk, please remain fire wise and safe. County Fire & EMS adds four firefighter/EMTs to staff Sumter County Fire & EMS celebrated the addition of four career Firefighter/EMTs to its staff during a Badge Ceremony held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 5 at the Countys Government Annex at 910 N. Main Street in Bushnell. The four new Firefighter/EMTs fill open positions created through employee turnover, and the departments previously announced addition of three Lieutenants. Those scheduled to receive their Firefighter/EMT Badge include: Michael Covell (Lake Mary) Justin Johnson (Maitland) Ralph Kaylor (Summerfield), and Michael Laming (Wildwood). During the latest recruitment process, Sumter County Fire & EMS received over 140 applicants who applied to join the department. The four who were eventually chosen all previously served the Sumter County residents as Reserve Firefighters. Each new Firefighter/EMT is required to complete a rigorous three-week orientation training regiment, which supplements the over 500 hours of Fire and EMS certification training they received prior to being hired. Commenting on the announcement, Chief Greek offered: Each of our new full-time Firefighter/EMTs have already proven their commitment to the organization of the community through their service as Reserve members. I am glad they are able to join the organization as career employees which will reduce the departments reliance on overtime, thus reducing costs for Sumter County residents. Those scheduled to receive their Firefighter/EMT Badge include: Michael Covell, Lake Mary; Justin Johnson, Maitland; Ralph Kaylor ,Summerfield; and Michael Laming, Wildwood. SUMTERVILLE 1389 S.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A PRIL 19, 2012 Truly honored I would like to take a moment to express how truly honored our family was to have such excellent deputies escort the funeral procession for Louise Stanley on April 13. As the procession had a very, very long drive to Linden cemetery, I watched as these deputies stopped traffic at each intersection as any normal duty I have seen in the past. However, the difference that made these deputies stand out to me and my family was the amazing act of respect and dignity they showed as they exited their vehicles and bowed their heads as we passed. We are from Ft. Myers and I have honestly never experienced such respect and honor as we did with these deputies. While this may be normal to Sumter County deputies... it is not normal where most of us come from. I do not know their names but I would be grateful if you would pass along our gratitude. It honestly made me want to move to Sumter County. It is not often that we see people take time out of their day to pay the respect to a perfect stranger, but I have to tell you, people pulled to the side of the road and some actually got out of their vehicles and placed their hands over their hearts or saluted. People in Sumter County ROCK! It makes a person weep with joy to see that kind of behavior that was once a common thing to see. Again, thank you for your service. Amy Jackson Ft. Myers Help needed The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County will be hosting three upcoming adoption events if interested adopters havent had a chance to meet many of their great adoptable animals. Join them on: Friday, April 20 at WVLG radio station at Lake Sumter Landing in the Villages from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.; -on Saturday, April 21 to celebrate Earth Day from 10am till 2pm at their Lake Panasoffkee facility at 994 C.R. 529A, meet adoptable dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs and cockatiels, plus a large selection of plants for sale; -and there again on Saturday, May 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a celebration of their 30th anniversary serving Sumter Countys animals in need. Meet adoptable animals plus the Directors, volunteers and enjoy light refreshments and great door prizes! Giving rescued animals another change at a happy life through adoption is a wonderful way to help recognize Earth Day and being green. Anyone who attends the Societys latter two events and brings recyclable items such as used ink cartridges, aluminum cans (rinsed and crushed please), and old cell phones will receive a gift from the Society. What can you do to recognize Earth day and the HS/SPCAs 30 years of serving the community? You can help them with some ideas below. Many of them are ways to make a big difference in the lives of animals in need. You could ... collect 30 empty ink cartridges, old cell phones and/or aluminum cans to recycle, or collect 30 bags/cans of pet food to feed hungry animals, or collect 30 bales of hay to feed many of the rescued horses, or collect 30 blankets to help rescued animals have a warm safe place to sleep, or donate $30 towards the HS/SPCAs Green Animal Shelter Fund, or tell 30 friends and neighbors about the work of the HS/SPCA for the community, or volunteer with them for 30 hours this year! Stop by and see how you can help the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County and learn more about the green animal shelter. Visit their Facebook page, www.hsspca.org, call 352793-9117 for more information. Humane Society/SPCA Be careful with fires S umter County is a high risk for wildfires as drought conditions continue through Central Florida. TheDepartment of Agriculture and Consumer Services is offering five tips for protecting homes during wildfire season. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service are trying to help Floridians protect themselves against the dangers of wildfire. The agencies remember the wildfires that raged through Florida in 1998, burning more than 500,000 acres and damaging or destroying 337 homes and other structures. Florida is unique in that it experiences a year-round wildfire season, with heightened wildfire activity during the spring months, said Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. Although we may receive sporadic rain, extended drought conditions are forecasted to persist throughout spring and into summer. Over the coming weeks and months, it is likely that Florida will experience very high to extreme wildfire danger due to these dry conditions. It is critical for Floridians to take steps to ensure their own safety. The departments Florida Forest Service manages more than one million acres of public forest land and protects over 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire. Since Jan. 1, more than 1,100 wildfires have burned nearly 20,000 acres in Florida. Most of these fires were caused by human carelessness. To prevent wildfires, follow these five simple steps: Check with local authorities for any temporary restrictions on burning yard waste Contain fires to an eight-foot diameter pile or noncombustible barrel at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from homes, 50 feet from paved public roads and 150 feet from other occupied buildings Do not burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 30 percent Never leave a fire unattended and make sure it is completely out before leaving Keep a shovel and water hose handy in case a small fire escapes containment In addition to the tips listed above, Floridians should also report any suspicious fires or fire activity to 911 or their local Florida Forest Service office. In 2011, the Florida Forest Service responded to more than 4,700 wildfires that burned over 220,000 acres, a 32 percent increase from the previous year. Firefighters saved more than 1,100 homes and business in Florida.

OPINIONS INVITED Opinion Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor At Red Oaks resort More than 1,200 people gathered at Red Oaks Carefree RV Resort in Bushnell to watch contestants from 22 Carefree RV Resorts compete in the companys first annual snowbird talent competition. It was an amazing event, said Dave Napp, CEO of Carefree RV Resorts. We had acts that featured vocals, guitar, harmonica, clogging, yodeling and piano with vocal accompaniment. Kenny Channels, a Gatlinburg, Tenn. resident who is staying at Carefrees Riptide RV Resort in Key Largo, won the $5,000 grand prize with a vocal medley that included songs by George Strait and a ballad Channels wrote called Somebodys got to do it. Glenn Gillespie of Plattsburg, N.Y., who is staying at Carefree RV Resort in Daytona, won a second place prize of $500 plus two nights at Carefrees Pelican Motel in Marathon, Fla. in the Florida Keys for singing and playing the guitar to a song called Yodeling Cowboy. Ed Martin from Carefrees Sweetwater RV Resort in Zephyrillis won a seven-day Caribbean cruise through a random drawing, courtesy of OmniTours. Carefree itself covered the cost of the other prizes with Jacobsen Homes and Waste Management contributing $2,500 and $500, respectively, toward the $5,000 grand prize. Napp said snowbird interest in the talent show had been building for months. Competitions were initially held at 22 of Carefrees parks in Florida. The winners from those competitions then competed at Red Oaks Carefree RV Resort in Bushnell for the grand prize. It was really fun watching everyone compete, Napp said. Many of our parks videotaped their competitions and created parties around their events and just took a lot of pride in each winner. Many parks also rented buses and vans to bring up their customers to cheer their parks winner at the final competition. We initially thought we were only going to have about 600 spectators, but we wound up with more than 1,200. Carefree also treated all of the contestants and spectators to a free spaghetti dinner following the competition.

That was the year Pizza Hut came to Bushnell. Mohs was relocated to Dunnellon when the restaurant caught fire (due to faulty wires) back in February 2003. Brenda then transferred to Leesburg. The current restaurant general manager is relocating to Gainesville area, leaving an opening for Mohs to return.

On Saturday, judging begins in the morning, with live entertainment, food and chrome vendors all day long, according to 75 Chrome Shops Kerri Farkus. Then on Sunday, its trophy time. While there is a fee for trucks to show, spectator admission is free and the public is welcome. As a matter of fact, the show typically draws thousands of spectators, including hundreds of bikers who are in Central Florida to attend Leesburgs Bike Week. The Pride and Polish is the top event competition with cleanest and most unique taking the win. The Wash and Shine competition was added, which is based mainly on presentation, allowing more drivers to compete. 75 Chrome Shops Jennilee Jowers said last years exhibitors were some of the top trucks since the show began. The event draws dozens of big rigs, from across the nation, some all the way from Canada, to show off their custom and chrome. The categories at the event included working and non-working combinations with trailers and without trailers. During the two-day event, owners and operators answer questions for the crowd and share stories on their travels across the nation. At night, they kick it up a notch and it becomes a literal light show, with thousands of lights along the massive rigs. 75 Chrome shop is located off I-75 at the Wildwood Turnpike Extension. The store itself is a showcase, with gloss and shine from wall to wall. They offer a wide variety of chrome accessories and the store combines all the facilities of a modern truck stop with service bays, a CB shop, showers, laundry facilities and game room. Owners Debbie and Billy Farkus created the 75 Chrome Pride and Polish Annual Truck Show to give drivers a venue to display their rigs. The address is 419 East S.R. 44, just west of the intersection of S.R. 44 (Gulf to Atlantic Highway) and Interstate 75 (exit 329). For More information, call the shop at 352-748-0330. First Gear is one of several show trucks heading to Wildwood at the end of the month for the 75 Chrome Shop 14th Annual Truck Show. The three-day event is slated for Friday-Sunday, April 27-29. SHOW continued from Page 1 the road where his car slide through the grass and crashed into the bus, the report states. Perkins had to swerve to miss hitting a woman who was standing on the shoulder apparently waiting to pick up a child. The car became wedged under the rear of the bus and the collision ignited both vehicles which eventually were engulfed in flames, the report states. Perkins was cited for following too closely behind another vehicle, Caruthers said. In the meantime, all 27 students had been removed from the bus immediately following the accident by bus driver Penny Peg, said School Supt. Rick Shirley, who arrived at the scene shortly after the accident. Peg was able to get the students to safety before the bus was eventually devoured by flames. She deserves special kudos for her actions, Shirley said. She was magnificent. Peg made sure the students, in grades from kindergarten through fifth grade, were quietly taken off the bus and then she calmly took them away from the accident site and collected them under an oak tree, Shirley said. Initial reports are that no one was injured in accident, according to a county press release. The fire started in the rear of the bus and then consumed the remainder of it, Shirleysaid. It was completely burned from the back all the way to the firewall in the front. Shirley said some people said it was an unlucky event for Friday the 13th. But this was a good Friday the 13th, he said. With that kind of wreck and that kind of damage and no injuries, thats not a bad Friday the 13th at all. We can always buy another bus. But it was a good day, that bus driver got all those kids off safely. Shirley said he has nothing but praise for the way emergency and fire personnel dealt with the situation. It was just one of those terrible accidents that you wish didnt happen, but given the circumstances, it all went well. BUS continued from Page 1 All 27 Webster Elementary School students were removed from the school bus and taken to safety. The school bus driver is being credited for her actions during the accident. CAR WEDGED UNDER SCHOOL BUS cle and added to the couples financial burden, she said. He is the sole provider for the family and now must depend on family and friends for transportation.

Steven A. Fruhling was traveling south on State Road 471 in a 2003 Chevrolet Blazer about 12:39 a.m. when he attempted to pass another vehicle that was slowing down to make a left turn onto County Road 721, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. For an unknown reason, Fruhling lost control of the vehicle and traveled onto the west shoulder of S.R. 471 and traveled down a nine-foot embankment and struck the west side of it. The Blazer caught on fire, the report states. Passers-by were able to remove Fruhling from the vehicle.

A columnist for the Sumter County Times and Citrus County Chronicle, Kennedy also serves as religion editor and feature writer for the daily paper. She is a Christian author and inspirational speaker. Life is hard, but God is good. And Hes full of surprises, like calling me to a speaking ministry. Ill never forget the day. I said something like, God, Ill do anything for you except.... You see, speaking before an audience was the one thing I thought I could never, ever do. Since then Hes been out to prove me wrong, that I can indeed do all things through Christ. As a result, for the past several years Ive thoroughly enjoyed being proven wrong as I seek to convey the message that His love and grace are readily available to all who are in Christ. Kennedy currently lives in Inverness, where shes active in her church and community. A Christian since age 23, she said she surrendered her life to Jesus Christ in the ladies room of the supply warehouse at Loring AFB, Maine. She would love to tell you more about that. Married to Barry Kennedy since 1975, she said she still thinks hes awfully cute. They have two daughters: Alison (grown and married) and Laura, a twenty-something student in Charlotte, N.C. (Theyre cute, too.) Known for her honesty and gentle humor, Kennedy says, I love my life. Im incredibly average, basically clueless, always self-centered. I love coconut cake, soft blue jeans, sushi, sappy love songs and knowing that theres no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I also love to laugh and love sharing my gift of laughter and inspiration. A member of Advanced Writers and Speakers Association, Nancy has appeared on radio programs such as Family Life Today and Revive Our Hearts. Most recently, Kennedy was chosen as one of four monthly Walk With Me bloggers for Todays Christian Woman at www.todayschristianwoman.c om. Her books include: Girl on a Swing, Prayers God Always Answers, Move Over Victoria I Know the Real Secret, When He Doesnt Believe, When Perfect Isnt Enough, Between Two Loves, and Lipstick Grace. What others say about Nancy Kennedy: If you like Nancy Kennedys books, youll love her as a speaker. She is real and funny and down-to-earth. In the midst of relating her real-life experiences with humor and poignancy, shell bring Gods truth for your life into the midst of your gathering. We strongly encourage you to invite Nancy to speak to your group. Laura Parker, Associate Pastor and Womens Bible Study Facilitator, Mt. Zion United Methodist Church, Marietta, GA Nancy Kennedy speaks the truth with such genuineness. She is an unpretentious icon of unpretentiousness! In a world where women are virtually taught to wear masks, Nancy points us to the gospel, the only place where we can be safe to be who we really are. She speaks to every womans heart that longs to truly be loved, rescued, and cared for by a faithful lover and Nancy knows well the only faithful One is Jesus Christ. Her books and spoken words take aim to point us to Him alone. Reina Cherry, Coaches Honor, a ministry to coaches and coaches wives With refreshing honesty, Nancy has a been there done that approach to ministry and teaching as opposed to a you should do X if you want God to X approach. There is nothing preachy about her. She comes across as a fellow sojourner, and I like that about her and her writing. Thats what makes her stand out. I also think she has a way of pulling the hilarious out of the every day. Thats a good trait.

The action was during a game against South Sumter High School. He is a quiet kid, but when you watch film his play speaks for itself, number 23 was all over the field, all game long, said Head Coach Matt LaBranche. Varsity team members are shown. They are (front row, left to right) Victoria Medina, Shelby Spruill, Katie Nobles, Taylor Wiley, Desyree Reynolds, Mariah Guarino; (back row, left to right): Brittani Grady, Ticie Hagins, Skye Davenport, Chanara McMiller, and Amber Hancock. The team was coached by Tammy Skipper, Heather Kadur and Marc Johnson. ASHLEY GRADY/Special to the TimesTaylor Wiley is shown sliding into home to score. SUMTER sports Anfernee Martin signed with Ave Maria University to play football next season. He could be playing on either side of the ball. He was a RB/CB for us this past season. Shown, (front row, left to right) are: Wildwood High School Principal Richard Hampton, Martin, Danzell Williams; (standing, left to right): Coach Mike Hensley, Coach Matt LaBranche. Afernee Martin, a running back and center back for the Wildwood Wildcats, earned a scholarship to the Naples Ave Maria University this year. Ave Maria is getting a quality individual who has been one of the most coachable kids we have ever had at Wildwood, said head coach Matt LaBranche. Martin, number 23 for the Cats, began playing football in the seventh grade. My friends and I decided we all wanted to play during that seventh grade year, he said, adding that his cousins are the ones responsible for getting him into the game at a young age. Martin expects excellence and nothing less, from himself. I try to put my all into my playing. He is a quiet kid, but when you watch film his play speaks for itself, number 23 was all over the field, all game long, LaBranche said. Anfernee is a very skilled player that never came off the field. He will be very hard to replace because he started on both sides of the ball and played all of our special teams. Martin still recalls his very first touchdown and his very first interception for a touchdown. He was sent on a go route and caught the pass. The ball was tipped and I snatched it out of the air and returned it for a touchdown, he said. His past stats include five offensive touchdowns, 35 tackles, one defensive touchdown and three interceptions and Martin sees his strength as his speed. He also has a philosophy, Never give up on something you love. Of earning the scholarship, Martin said he feels, Great! Not many players actually earn an athletic scholarship. The son of Janice Smith and Leroy Martin, he said his plans are to graduate college in four years with a business degree. He has one sister, Lateefah Martin. Wildwoods Martin signs with college B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer The normally potent Wildwood High offense seemed to take Friday night off. The Wildcats (15-3 overall, 5-3 in Class 1A District 8 play) scored two seventh inning runs but came up short in a 3-2 district loss to Pierson Taylor at the Wildwood Field. Sean Hensley, who was 2-for-3 Friday, doubled off Pierson Taylor pitcher Kody Heston to lead off the last inning. Brad Ragan then singled to score Hensley. Two outs later, Nate White reached on a fielders choice. He scored on Jalen Goodens single to center. That was all the offense Wildwood could muster. Starting pitcher Garrett Hurst (6-2) was saddled with the loss. He allowed two runs on a fielders choice in the first inning and the winning run scored on a throwing error in the fourth inning. He allowed six hits, struck out five and walked one in the loss. Wildwood had six hits and Heston struck out six. Garrett admitted that he didnt have his best stuff tonight, said Wildwood High head coach Adam Cardona. We had that one rough first inning that kind of hurt us a little bit. He settled down after that. He didnt have the stuff he had all season. The coach said this wasnt a normal game for the Wildcats. We normally are strong hitting, Cardona said. We werent patient and disciplined at the plate. We swung at a lot of bad pitches. It wasnt the team we have had all season. Shawn Cheesy Aten has led the team with a batting average over .500. One through nine, we have been solid, Cardona said. Tonight, we were dead at the plate. This is definitely a game we should have won, Cardona said. I tip my hat to Pierson Taylor. They did everything they could to win that ball game. We have to show up next game and realize we are not invincible. Wildwood will have to face Pierson Taylor there in a district tournament match up. Wildwood diamond boys come up short L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent Its that time of year again: spring. Landowners, homeowner associations and sportsmen look for private fish farms from which to buy Floridas favorite freshwater game fish, the largemouth bass, to stock in their ponds or lakes. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wants to remind those who live south and east of the Suwannee River that, legally, they may purchase and stock only authenticated Florida largemouth bass. These bass are from fish farmers or aquaculturists whose fish have been genetically tested and authenticated by the FWC as pure Florida largemouth bass. Anglers come to our state from all over the world to catch trophy Florida largemouth bass, so the FWC is doing everything possible to protect the genetic purity of this ecologically and economically important subspecies of bass. Currently, no out-of-state farms meet FWC requirements, and only two instate fish farms meet the requirements. Those are Florida Fish Farms Inc. (352-793-4224) and Shongaloo Fisheries (352-4681251). Both are registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and sell authenticated, pure Florida largemouth bass. Violation of this rule is a criminal offense and also may result in federal prosecution under the Lacey Act if fish are transported across state lines. Civil penalties can reach $5,000 per fish. The South Sumter Lady Raider JV softball team ended their season April 4th with a 9-8 win over Forest High School in Ocala. Their overall record for the season was eight wins and three loses. Behind the mound the entire season was pitcher Skye Davenport, executing several games where there were no hits. Other teams members include Victoria Medina, Shelby Spruill, Katie Nobles, Taylor Wiley, Desyree Reynolds, Mariah Guarino, Brittani Grady, Ticie Hagins, Chanara McMiller and Amber Hancock.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A PRIL 19, 2012, P AGE 11 N onprofit Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has announced their Pet Peace of Mind program is now fully operational bringing peace of mind to Lake and Sumter patients who own pets by funding pet food, litter and routine vaccines. The program also provides pet-loving volunteers to assist with dog walking, poop detail and transportation to vet appointments plus visiting the pets owners at home, nursing facilities or at the nonprofits hospice house. Phyllis Anderson and her husband Dick moved to The Villages in 2005 hoping to enjoy their retirement years with new neighbors and some old friends that shared part of their working years. They also enjoyed their golf cart, golf environment, and their rescued Cavalier King Charles dog named Spencer... but all that changed just a year and a half later. Dick was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and rapidly went from bad to worse. By summertime he was admitted to Cornerstones Hospice House, Phyllis and Spencer were with him everyday to visit. When the end came, both Phyllis and Spencer deeply grieved. For Phyllis, the hospice chaplain was a tremendous source of comfort. For Spencer, the trauma was bewildering. He was angry Dick was gone. Phyllis and Spencer comforted each other as the weeks passed and sought out activities they could enjoy together. Phyllis wanted to express her appreciation for the wonderful care she felt from Cornerstone Hospice and decided to give back by becoming a volunteer. When a friend told Phyllis about the Dynamic Dog Club she signed up immediately for the free class for Spencer to become a therapy dog. Bev Johnson teaches this certification class and also had an interest in the hospice program. Her interest in a therapy dog program began with an encounter in an Alzheimers facility. The final stages of this disease left her mom in a catatonic-like state. She had not spoken in several months. During one visit, Bev saw a therapy dog visit the parlor and watched as her mothers eyes began to track the dog. When the handler brought the dog close, her mother reached out to pet its head and put her arms around the dogs neck asking the handler, Whats her name? For a brief few minutes Bev saw her mother smile and come back from her foggy faraway world. The joy Bev experienced brought the clear resolution that when she retired she would have a therapy dog to bring this joy to another. Bev purchased a miniature poodle puppy and began training, reading-up on the subject of therapy dogs, and participating in the Dynamic Dog Club. Phyllis and Bev met in the therapy dog class Bev was teaching. After Phyllis passed all of her testing, she requested to be assigned to visit at The Villages Hospice House. Bev then learned that Phyllis would need to attend the 16-hour training which was available in Sumterville at Cornerstones Lane-Purcell Hospice House. Bev and Phyllis went to the training together where they met Lisa Gray, the volunteer manager for Cornerstone Hospice. Lisa Grays long time dream of combining her hospice heart with her passion for pets was thrilled to receive a call from an enthusiastic Bev Johnson, president of the Dynamic Dog Club. Bev had a list of 14 pet therapists interested in becoming Cornerstone Hospice volunteers. The larger plan came together when Cornerstone Hospice was introduced to Banfield Charitable Trusts program Pet Peace of Mind. This program was developed by Banfield specifically for not-for-profit hospices to help keep patients and their pets together longer. Cornerstone Hospice understands the importance of family members with fur and feathers. In May 2011, Banfield awarded Cornerstone Hospice a $5,000 grant and Pet Peace of Mind program materials needed to begin. Cornerstone is the first hospice in the state of Florida to be awarded this program! Cornerstone Hospice can now bring peace of mind to our patients by funding pet food, litter, and routine vaccines to those patients who are in need during this difficult time of their life. Cornerstone Hospice will also provide volunteers to assist with dog walking, poop detail and transportation to vet appointments, or to visit their owners in nursing facilities or one of the nonprofits hospice houses. The positive results of the Pet Peace of Mind program will help pet owners and hospice patients learn the importance of making a plan to assist their fourlegged or feathered family members. Cornerstone Hospice will attempt to find homes for pets who are grieving the loss of their owners when family and friends are unable to take them in. Contact Hospice for specialized training If you would like more information or to register for one of Hospices volunteer training classes please contact Cornerstone Hospice volunteer manager Lisa Gray at 352742-6806 or volunteer specialist Kim Carter at 352-455-6081 or 352-5695305 or you may call toll free at 888-728-6234.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A PRIL 19, 2012, P AGE 17 000B6MP Critter chatter Stay alert gator mating season is under way I t is gator mating season again. This is the time of year when the Florida alligators become more active and on the move. I know that this time of year, every year, I write about gator safety. Native Floridians have learned to co-exist with the local wildlife, but for as many years as I have lived in Florida, I seem to be more cautious then most. Could it be that growing up in the New York City suburbs, we were never exposed to such wild critters? Whatever the reason for my slightly over cautious behavior, I do love living in rural Florida and enjoy the wide variety of wildlife. March through September, Florida alligators can be found moving from swamp to swamp or pond to pond, perhaps in search of a mate or a meal! They are more dominant and aggressive during mating season. July through September mama gators will aggressively guard their nests and youngsters. They camouflage so well in their natural surroundings that it can be easy to not notice them from a safe distance. This is my worst fear: Walking my dogs and encountering a gator! Now I know not to walk by a body of water, but when traveling from one pond to the next, the gators are surly roaming on land. Small animals are meals for gators, but it seems to me that they have a sweet tooth for dogs. And so every morning and every afternoon, as I walk my dogs, I am constantly on guard, searching the sides of the roads and the brush for any sign of the states resident reptile. My walks are no longer relaxing and enjoyable, but stressful and guarded as I vigilantly keep a look out for gators. My husband, Ronnie, of course thinks I am a wee bit paranoid. Growing up in the country is second nature to him, but not so for this city transplant. And so, here is my yearly warning to all pet parents. Watch out for gators! Do not walk your pets near bodies of water. Walk during daylight hours when gator activity is not as active. Stay alert! Alligators are an important part of Floridas ecosystem. Armed with knowledge and keeping safety in mind, we can coexist and marvel at the beautiful landscape and wildlife we have here in Florida.

P AGE 20SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A PRIL 19, 2012 000B5AZ 000B5AW 000B5AY 000B5B2 FAMILY FEATURES C hef Mary Ann Esposito, host of the PBS television show Ciao Italia, knows all about the joys and benefits of cooking with olive oil. Olive oil is 100 percent natural, contains no cholesterol, trans fats, sodium or sugar. It adds a delicious splash of flavor to any recipe. As a rule of thumb, she says, substitute an equal amount of olive oil for other cooking oils. Here are some more of her tips for eating deliciously with Filippo Berio Olive Oil: Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Has a rich, full flavor, fragrant aroma, low acidity and deep greenish-gold color. Its ideal for salad dressings, marinades, sauces, roasting potatoes and dipping bread. Drizzle it over air-popped popcorn for a healthiersnack,anduseitinChefMaryAnnsrecipeforMarinatedCarrot,Caper and Sweet Red Pepper Salad. Olive Oil: Has a rich golden color; perfectly balanced with a mild flavor. Its ideal as a base for sauces and for sauting meat, poultry, fish or vegetables. Try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Eggplant Rolls. Extra Light Olive Oil: Has a subtle taste and light bouquet, which allows natural flavors of food to come through. It has a high smoke point, which makes it perfect for frying, stir-frying and baking. For a great break fast, use it to scramble eggs. For dinner, try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Devilish Chicken. Visit www.filippoberio.com and www.ciaoitalia.com for more healthy, delizioso recipes from Chef Mary Ann. Marinated Carrot, Caper and Sweet Red Pepper SaladServes 4 Marinade 1/3 cup Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 1/4 teaspoons salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons salt-packed capers, well rinsed Salad 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch-long matchstick pieces 1 tablespoon salt 2 large sweet red bell peppers cut into thin, 2-inch-long strips 1 cup thinly sliced fennel bulb 1/4 cup minced flat leaf parsley 2 tablespoons minced mint Combine all marinade ingredients in a 12 x 9-inch rectangular glass or ceramic dish. Mix well. Set aside. Fill a 12to 14-inch saut pan three-quarters full with water. Add carrots and salt. Bring to a boil and cook until a knife tip easily pierces carrots. Drain in colander and transfer to dish with marinade. Toss well. Add peppers and fennel and toss again. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour, tossing occasionally to meld the flavors. Just before serving, toss parsley and mint into salad. Serve at room temperature. Eggplant RollsServes 8 1 large eggplant (7 to 8 inches long), stem removed, cut into 8 1/4-inch-thick lengthwise slices 2 tablespoons Filippo Berio Olive Oil 2/3 cup minced fresh oregano or mint 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1/2 cup pine nuts 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce 1 cup toasted bread crumbs, made from stale bread Chefs Secret: Purchase eggplants that are very shiny, have intact stem tops, show no bruising or soft spots and feel heavy. Preheat oven to 350F, or fire up the grill. Brush eggplant slices on both sides with olive oil and place in single layers on slightly oiled rimmed baking sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes, or just until soft. Set aside to cool. Alternatively, grill eggplant slices on both sides until they soften and grill marks appear. Mix oregano (or mint), salt, pepper and pine nuts together in a bowl. Spread a couple of tablespoons of the mixture along length of each eggplant slice, and then roll slices into bundles. Spread 1/2 cup tomato sauce in the base of a 12 x 9-inch casserole dish. Place eggplant bundles in rows in the dish and spread remaining sauce evenly over top. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake 5 minutes longer. Serve hot and sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Chef Mary Ann Esposito is an accom plished cookbook author and the creator and host of Ciao Italia, the longest-running cooking series on television.Devilish Chicken Serves 4 1 3 1/2 to 4-pound free-range, organic chicken, butterflied 1/4 cup Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil Fine sea salt Freshly ground black pepper Cayenne pepper or dried hot red pepper flakes 1 cup dry white wine Lemon wedges To butterfly chicken, place it on a plastic cutting board, breast side down. With kitchen shears or a boning knife, cut along both sides of backbone and remove and discard the bone or save for stock. Turn chicken over skin side up and flatten it by pressing down with hands or a meat pounder. Coat chicken completely with olive oil, then season with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Transfer chicken to a dish, cover, and marinate for several hours. This step can be done the day before. Preheat grill. When coals are white or a gas grill temperature reaches 500F, place chicken on grill, breast side down. Cook, turning frequently, and keeping the fire under control so as not to burn the chicken. About 10 minutes into grilling, begin basting chicken with wine. Continue basting every 10 minutes. The chicken is cooked when a meat thermometer inserted into the thigh bone registers between 175F and 180F. Transfer chicken to a cutting board, and cut into serving pieces. Serve hot with lemon wedges and a squirt of lemon juice. Use your fingers, not a fork, to eat.

They offer sales and installation on retail flooring and window treatments and installation supplies. The mother and daughter team opened their Bushnell location six years ago, but have 12 years experience in flooring through a store they own in Tavares. Our daughter decided she wanted to come into business with us and thats when we purchased the local store, said mom Terri. They decided to grow the family business here in Bushnell. They see the flooring business as an opportunity to help people and be creative. Thats definitely what drew Mallory into it, Terri said of her daughters desire to get started in the business. They offer design services as well as providing both product and installation. Customers handpick materials and colors, which are then used for the final design. As for their business philosophy, its people first. We stand behind the materials that we sell and install, Blessings said, explaining that they supply only goods that the manufacturers will stand behind. If the manufacturer wont stand behind the product, it wont be supplied at Carpet Depot and More, she said. We would rather lose a sale than put in a product that will fail and cause a customer dissatisfaction. We look at the needs and wants of the customer and point them in the right direction. In other words, we care. Whats the best way to define their business and customer service? Call me. We support our community and we hope and pray that it comes back to us, she said, noting that they were relying on their Christian faith to guide them. Women-owned, the Bushnell store is a state certified minority business. Carpet Depot and More is located at 303 N. Market Street.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES Thursday, April 19, 2012 G9 G4 Thursday, April 19, 2012S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES Group practice offers comprehensive dental services I t was just over three years ago the Bushnell Family Dentistry and Cosmetics moved into a brand-new state-of-the-art facility at the corner of U.S. 301 and C.R. 542 in Bushnell. Their success comes from offering comprehensive dental services, including dental specialist services at one location. That makes dental treatment more efficient for our patients and results in the need for fewer appointments, said Patient Treatment Coordinator Dana Kimble. Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is a group practice with three general dentists, an oral surgeon, a periodontist and an orthodontist. According to Kimble, Our dental team can provide implant dentistry services, oral and periodontal surgery, sedation dentistry and orthodontics (braces) to our patients. This is in addition to family and cosmetic dentistry services which include crowns, veneers, bridges, fillings, whitening procedures, cleaning, dentures, parcels, extractions, and endodontics (root canals). In addition to a large team of general dentists and dental specialists, the practice is also very high-tech. All radiographs (X rays) taken at the practice are digital. This resulted in a much lower exposure of the patient to radiation than the traditional film techniques. Additionally, digital x-rays are more environmentally friendly since chemicals are not used to process films. Intraoral cameras are used by the practice to allow the patient to actually see every aspect of the tooth, including the front, back and side. The practice uses these cameras to educate patients about the dental health and condition of the teeth. A laser is used to perform many soft tissue surgical procedures. One big advantage of the laser is that it eliminates the need for sutures after the procedure. The practice even has the E4D system to make all porcelain crowns, onlays and veneers right in the office. The system uses laser technology to scan a prepared tooth, impression or a model of the tooth. A lab technician uses a sophisticated computer program to design the restoration and the restoration is fabricated on site. With the E4D system that Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry uses, a patient can leave the office a few hours later with their final restoration, rather than a temporary restoration. According to Kimble, Our patients love the fact that with the E4D system they can leave our office with their permanent crown, veneer or onlays on the same day that the tooth was prepared. This is especially beneficial to our busy patients who find it difficult to take time off from work. High technology is also used to increase patient comfort at the practice. Each treatment room is equipped with a flat screen television and each of the leather dental chairs has a built-in back massage device. Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is located at 65 C.R. 542 W. in Bushnell, FL. The location is about one mile north of downtown Bushnell, at the corner of U.S. Hwy. 301 and C.R. 542 W. The office contact telephone number is 352-569-0100 and their website is www.bushnelldentistry.com. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. The practice is accepting new patients. Ciggys 4 Less R oll your own. Smokers looking for a good bargain on their cigarettes can check out the prices on the roll your own tobacco at Ciggys 4 Less. Thats where theyll find boxes of 200 smokes starting at just $24.95. Joann Luczka opened her store just three months ago on C.R. 48 W in Bushnell. Luczka sees the focus of the business as a money saver for smokers as they roll their own cigarettes. Customers purchase tobacco tubes and use a rolling machine that can fill between 190 and 200 cigarettes in 10 minutes or less. Luczka said her staff is friendly and more than happy to help customers select their favorite blends. The store offers double loyalty points on Mondays and Wednesdays, with a $2 discount on Tuesdays. The store is located on W. C.R. 48 in Bushnell and open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call the store at 352-569-0303.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES Thursday, April 19, 2012 G9 G4 Thursday, April 19, 2012S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES Group practice offers comprehensive dental services I t was just over three years ago the Bushnell Family Dentistry and Cosmetics moved into a brand-new state-of-the-art facility at the corner of U.S. 301 and C.R. 542 in Bushnell. Their success comes from offering comprehensive dental services, including dental specialist services at one location. That makes dental treatment more efficient for our patients and results in the need for fewer appointments, said Patient Treatment Coordinator Dana Kimble. Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is a group practice with three general dentists, an oral surgeon, a periodontist and an orthodontist. According to Kimble, Our dental team can provide implant dentistry services, oral and periodontal surgery, sedation dentistry and orthodontics (braces) to our patients. This is in addition to family and cosmetic dentistry services which include crowns, veneers, bridges, fillings, whitening procedures, cleaning, dentures, parcels, extractions, and endodontics (root canals). In addition to a large team of general dentists and dental specialists, the practice is also very high-tech. All radiographs (X rays) taken at the practice are digital. This resulted in a much lower exposure of the patient to radiation than the traditional film techniques. Additionally, digital x-rays are more environmentally friendly since chemicals are not used to process films. Intraoral cameras are used by the practice to allow the patient to actually see every aspect of the tooth, including the front, back and side. The practice uses these cameras to educate patients about the dental health and condition of the teeth. A laser is used to perform many soft tissue surgical procedures. One big advantage of the laser is that it eliminates the need for sutures after the procedure. The practice even has the E4D system to make all porcelain crowns, onlays and veneers right in the office. The system uses laser technology to scan a prepared tooth, impression or a model of the tooth. A lab technician uses a sophisticated computer program to design the restoration and the restoration is fabricated on site. With the E4D system that Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry uses, a patient can leave the office a few hours later with their final restoration, rather than a temporary restoration. According to Kimble, Our patients love the fact that with the E4D system they can leave our office with their permanent crown, veneer or onlays on the same day that the tooth was prepared. This is especially beneficial to our busy patients who find it difficult to take time off from work. High technology is also used to increase patient comfort at the practice. Each treatment room is equipped with a flat screen television and each of the leather dental chairs has a built-in back massage device. Bushnell Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is located at 65 C.R. 542 W. in Bushnell, FL. The location is about one mile north of downtown Bushnell, at the corner of U.S. Hwy. 301 and C.R. 542 W. The office contact telephone number is 352-569-0100 and their website is www.bushnelldentistry.com. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays. The practice is accepting new patients. Ciggys 4 Less R oll your own. Smokers looking for a good bargain on their cigarettes can check out the prices on the roll your own tobacco at Ciggys 4 Less. Thats where theyll find boxes of 200 smokes starting at just $24.95. Joann Luczka opened her store just three months ago on C.R. 48 W in Bushnell. Luczka sees the focus of the business as a money saver for smokers as they roll their own cigarettes. Customers purchase tobacco tubes and use a rolling machine that can fill between 190 and 200 cigarettes in 10 minutes or less. Luczka said her staff is friendly and more than happy to help customers select their favorite blends. The store offers double loyalty points on Mondays and Wednesdays, with a $2 discount on Tuesdays. The store is located on W. C.R. 48 in Bushnell and open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call the store at 352-569-0303.

They offer sales and installation on retail flooring and window treatments and installation supplies. The mother and daughter team opened their Bushnell location six years ago, but have 12 years experience in flooring through a store they own in Tavares. Our daughter decided she wanted to come into business with us and thats when we purchased the local store, said mom Terri. They decided to grow the family business here in Bushnell. They see the flooring business as an opportunity to help people and be creative. Thats definitely what drew Mallory into it, Terri said of her daughters desire to get started in the business. They offer design services as well as providing both product and installation. Customers handpick materials and colors, which are then used for the final design. As for their business philosophy, its people first. We stand behind the materials that we sell and install, Blessings said, explaining that they supply only goods that the manufacturers will stand behind. If the manufacturer wont stand behind the product, it wont be supplied at Carpet Depot and More, she said. We would rather lose a sale than put in a product that will fail and cause a customer dissatisfaction. We look at the needs and wants of the customer and point them in the right direction. In other words, we care. Whats the best way to define their business and customer service? Call me. We support our community and we hope and pray that it comes back to us, she said, noting that they were relying on their Christian faith to guide them. Women-owned, the Bushnell store is a state certified minority business. Carpet Depot and More is located at 303 N. Market Street.

He has come up against government entities, corporations and individuals around the state and nation. Hes represented clients in cases against most of the top law firms in the state of Florida and maintains a high success rate. In the courtroom and the boardroom, Wades success is what his clients are looking for in an attorney. Life is complicated, with many conflicting issues such as education, employment, family, children, housing and money for everyday things, like food. Life is a series of hurdles and the challenge is to keep your head up and move forward, Wade said. Explaining the firm motto, Overcoming the Hurdles of Life, in relation to serving his clients, Wade said its identifying the obstacle, determining a strategy and then engaging the tools and personnel to reach the goal. For nearly 30 years, Wade has been assisting clients in Sumter County and throughout Florida to recognize and overcome their hurdles. Some cases are a pleasure everyone likes to get a new home. Other cases are more difficult working with families who have lost a loved one through illness or accident adds a layer of emotion to the case. His experience includes real estate cases, nursing home neglect, personal injury, aviation law, eminent domain, wrongful death, civil litigation and probate administration. In real estate hes handled everything from helping a young couple purchase their first home to coordinating the sale of commercial business property when the owners retire. He has represented clients in cases that range from easement issues, boundary disputes and mortgage foreclosures, to help with estate planning decisions, probate administration to distribute the estate of a friend or family member and simple wills. Unfortunately, some cases are the result of tragedy such as auto accidents or abuse of the elderly in nursing homes, he said of the personal injury and nursing home neglect cases. Wade is a sustaining member of the Lawyer Pilots Bar Association (LPBA) and currently president of the Sumter County Bar Association. From those early years in practice, Wade has worked to hone his skill and expand the services his firm is able to provide.
