Police: String of burglaries solved


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

Sheriff's investigators
say they've solved a series
of burglaries in The Vil-
lages that resulted in 19
household appliances
being taken from 16 dif-
ferent houses in less than
two months.
The burglaries started
happening about March 1
and ended with the arrest
of a suspect in April.
That arrest led to the ar-
rest of another suspect
last week who is sus-


pected of organizing the
burglaries, according to
sheriff's Capt. Kevin
Hofecker.
The burglaries hap-
pened at newly con-
structed homes in The
Villages that were nearing
completion, Hofecker
said. The burglars would
take new appliances from
the residences before the
homes were occupied.
The stolen items ranged
from washers and dryers
to microwaves and ranges,
he said.
While investigators


Haislip
have the suspects, they
have not been able to re-
cover any of the missing
appliances, Hofecker


Sipes
said.
Their first arrest came
on April 17 after investi-
gators successfully pieced


Vilar


together information they
collected after viewing a
surveillance camera
video operated at the gate


house at Pinellas Place
and Morse Boulevard,
Hofecker said.
In the video, investiga-
tors saw a black Chevrolet
truck leaving the area
with a load of appliances.
The video showed a por-
tion of the license plate
number and investigators
were able to finally deter-
mine ownership.
The video also showed
the driver of the truck.
Officers identified him

BUSHNELL TRANSFORMATION UNDER WAY


BOB REICHMAN/Sumter County Times
Eighteen Canary Island palms grace the town square currently under construction in front of Bushnell City Hall.The park, complete with a gazebo, is
expected to be finished by the 4th of July.


City park to be completed


by 4th of July holiday


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

If you squint a bit, they
sort of look like gigantic
soft ice cream cones dot-
ting the landscape in
front of Bushnell City
Hall.
In actuality, they are 18
Canary Island date palms
topping off at about 17
feet high.
The reason the trees
may look a bit unusual is
because their fronds have
remained tied up and
bound.
It takes between 21 and
30 days after planting be-
fore the binding is re-
moved, said Bushnell
City Manager Vince
Ruano. During that pe-
riod, the trees are becom-
ing stabilized to their new
environment and roots
are beginning to grow.


The trees are part of
the city's new park being
created in front of City
Hall and just a block or
two down from the his-
toric Sumter County
Courthouse. The palm
trees are actually the
same type of tree that can
be found in front of the
courthouse, Ruano said.
The trees may look a bit
different because the
new ones have been care-
fully groomed, Ruano
said.
The Canary Island
palms were selected to fit
in with the trees at the
courthouse and with
other similar palm trees
along Florida Avenue,
Ruano said.
But palms aren't the
only large landscaping
material planted in front
of City Hall. This week,
four large live oaks will
be planted near the cen-


ter of the park to create a
shady area, Ruano said.
While that's going on,
concrete work is ex-
pected to begin for park
sidewalks and a fountain
will be erected.
While the park isn't
scheduled to be com-
pleted until next January,
Ruano said the work is
way ahead of that sched-
ule. "The contractor is
saying to expect the park
to be completed by the
4th of July It's amazing
how it has all come to-
gether."
The town square park
is part of the city's multi-
modal project funded by
the state Department of
Transportation. The proj-
ect also includes a 35-foot
gazebo currently under
construction and the dec-
orative fountain that will
be located in front of
Bushnell City Hall.

Forestry Arson Alert Association


asks citizens to 'Stomp Out Arson'


As part of Arson Awareness Week May 6
to 12, one group is asking Florida citizens
to help "Stomp Out Arson" by participat-
ing in a video contest that brings aware-
ness to the dangers of woods arson.
The Florida Forestry Arson Alert Asso-
ciation, a direct support organization of
the Florida Forest Service, is hosting the
contest to bring awareness to arson-
caused wildfires in an effort to curb grow-
ing woods arson statistics.
In 2012 alone, more than 20 percent of
Florida's wildfires were caused by woods
arsonists. If woods arson continues at this
rate, Florida has the potential to double
its arson numbers from 2011 experienc-
ing over 800 arson-caused wildfires burn-
ing up to 15,000 acres.
Contest videos must center on the
theme "Stomp Out Arson," and highlight
the negative effects of woods arson in a
fun, safe, and informative way Video sub-
missions should be posted on the Florida
Forest Service Facebook page. The video
that obtains the most Facebook "likes" by
May 12 will be declared the winner and
will receive a $50 gift card sponsored by
the Florida Forestry Arson Alert Associa-
tion.
To enter the contest, participants
should adhere to the following guidelines:
Videos must incorporate the theme
"Stomp Out Arson."
Keep videos at 90 seconds or less.
Absolutely No profanity or vulgarity
Videos containing profanity or vulgarity
are prohibited and will be removed im-
mediately
Absolutely No live flame. Any videos de-
picting live flame will be disqualified and
removed immediately
Only videos posted to the Florida For-
est Service Facebook page will be consid-


ered.
Always remember your safety comes
first. Do not do anything in your video that
could cause harm or injury to you or oth-
ers.
For more information on the "Stomp
Out Arson" video contest, visit the Florida
Forest Service Facebook fan page.
In addition to participating in the con-
test, the Florida Forest Service and Office
of Agricultural Law Enforcement are ask-
ing for citizen help in identifying sus-
pected arsonists by reporting suspicious
activity to the Arson Alert Hotline at 1-
800-342-5869. Callers may remain anony-
mous and information about an
arson-caused wildland fire could be
worth up to a $5,000 reward. When re-
porting suspected woods arson activity,
callers should include the following in-
formation:
Descriptions of vehicles and license
plates (make, model, color, etc.)
Physical descriptions of individuals
(approximate height, weight, hair color,
clothing, etc.)
Be watchful for suspicious behavior
and pinpoint the area to assist law en-
forcement in their response
Call 9-1-1 immediately if you see sus-
picious behavior
DO NOT approach the suspect. Citi-
zen safety comes first!
The Florida Forest Service manages
over one million acres of public forest
land while protecting over 26 million
acres of homes, forestland, and natural
resources from the devastating effects of
wildfire. For statewide wildfire updates
and additional wildfire information, visit

New life for Dade Park

If you take the time to notice, you can't help but be im-
pressed with the work that Bruce Whiting is doing at Dade
Park. When Whiting became the park manager a few years
ago, things began to change and those changes are continuing.
Whiting has recruited some knowledgeable people to help
increase attendance and interest in the historic state park off
County Road 476 W, in Bushnell.
While the park has always had a lodge and museum, a play-
ground and picnic facilities -what it did lack was anything out
of the ordinary. The park is definitely a great place to visit. Its
bucolic atmosphere can't be denied. But that really hasn't been
enough to draw people to the park.
Whiting along with park supporters are making a difference.
Every month, something new and different is going on.
Several weeks ago, the park became the staging grounds for
Arts in the Park, the first of its kind arts and crafts show that
drew a variety of vendors.
Last week, the final installment of one of Whiting's concepts
came to fruition as the Sumter County Master Gardeners com-
pleted their final stage to help design and refurbish certain
landscape areas in the park.
He wanted to enhance the landscape in the public areas that
had been neglected over the years and make the public areas
more attractive, according Gwen Sears, chairperson for the
Sumter County Master Gardener Community Beautification
Committee. The group took on the project and has been work-
ing with the park on meeting these goals, as well as welcoming
this as an educational opportunity for the community.
The plantscapes were designed using native and endemic
plant materials and were approved by the park officials and
botanists. The first installation of plant material took place at
the Museum and Welcome Center, and was a combined effort
of the Master Gardeners and the Native Plant Society. In ad-
dition to the public areas, the Master Gardener Beautification
Committee has been involved in designing and mentoring a
Heritage Vegetable and Herb Garden. This will also become a
teaching instrument to the community and youth groups.
Between Whiting and these groups, Dade Park is taking on a
new life and attracting people who have never visited this
beautiful area before.
We give Whiting, The Sumter County Master Gardeners, the
Dade Battlefield Society and other park supports kudos for
helping to breathe new life into a beautiful area that unfortu-
nately has been too often overlooked.

Social Security isn't
'broke'
Social Security isn't "broke"
regardless of what Republicans
would have you believe; and for
any shortfalls that may occur 20
years down the road, there are
simple fixes to prolong the life of
the program.
The 2012 Social Security
Trustees Report shows that the
SS system works just as intended,
even in difficult economic times.
The most important fact revealed
in the 2012 Report is that our So-
cial Security system has a large
and growing surplus.
Social Security works remark-
ably well, and all that is needed
to keep it doing so is to eliminate
the tax cap and make those earn-
ing more than $110,000 a year pay
their fair share. Quick, easy and
equitable.
So, will someone please ex-
plain to me why Republicans are
constantly trying to privatize this
wonderful and efficient pro-
gram?

singing while promoting the
eventual return of Christ. Your
generous contribution helped
make our vision a reality.

munity one soul at a time, please

Sacred Conversations on
Race
For nearly three years now, the
United Church of Christ at The
Villages has had an active "Sa-
cred Conversations on Race,"
consisting of church members
and members of our community
- Christians, Jews, Unitarian
Universalists, Quakers and oth-
ers who do not have a religious
preference. We welcome others
to join us. We have presented
public forums on race some-
times speakers, sometime pan-
elists, sometimes movies, and
sometimes potluck dinners. All
have been free and open to the
public.
We are trying to heal the
wounds of slavery, the hate and
prejudice that still exist after
nearly 150 years after slavery
was abolished and nearly 50
years after the civil rights move-
ment tried to bring equality for
everyone.
Why hasn't this effort reached
more people in our area? Surely
it isn't because people don't care.
Surely it isn't because they aren't
interested. It's time to come out
of the darkness about racial is-
sues and spread the light of love
for our fellow human beings.
All of the great religions of the
world embrace the concept of
treating others the way they want
to be treated.
If you want to be included in
"The Sacred Conversations on
Race", please call Nancy at 352-
674-9288.
Thank you.

Saving some money
Though I am not a citizen of
my hometown of Bushnell, I
was born within 300 yards of the
new city hall aka Taj Mahal and
my father also was born within
approximately 500 yards of the
soon to be completed Central
Park, like in New York City
Gee, or gollee, makes me
wonder if perhaps dollars are
maybe in danger of rotting or
are they going out of style, and
must be gotten rid of asap?
Anyhow, it's always seemed to
me that since the sheriff's office
headquarters and the jail are
located in the city beautiful,
why does the city pay out a large
amount of money to support its
very own police department.
I've not crunched the num-
bers, but I'd just be that for a
heap less money that the city
and the sheriff could work out a
deal and that the money saved
could go to help some one who
needs help. We've got people in
our midst who need a helping
hand.
I'll be that if some of these
thoughts were put on a referen-
dum .. naw, that wouldn't work
either, account of apathy
Aw shucks, I recon, nuff said,


but then maybe someone or
somebody just might do some-
thing to change some things.
Right about here, the serenity
prayer should be stated.
Yours sincerely,
Clyde M. "Scrammy" Hunt

Many ways to connect with UF/IFAS through social media


With a statewide mission to en-
sure healthy food, families and
natural resources across Florida,
a great way to keep up with the
vast resources of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences is through
social media.
Social media tools, such as
Facebook, Twitter and YouTube,
offer ways residents can share ex-
periences and educate them-
selves on ways to make a
difference on important issues
ranging from food production, to
water conservation, money man-
agement and conservation.
For example, when a call for
volunteers to help clean up a UF
campus nature preserve known
as the Natural Area Teaching Lab
went out through both the lab and
UF's Twitter account, new faces
came to the site's aid, said the
lab's director, Jennifer Gillett-
Kaufman.
"We had volunteers that we
might not have reached before,"
she said. "Not only did we get
more followers on our Twitter ac-
count, but a lot of people who had
never heard of the Natural Area
came down and volunteered."
Social media also allows IFAS
research and extension person-
nel to improve collaborative ef-


forts, said Gillett-Kaufman, an ex-
tension scientist in UF/IFAS' en-
tomology and nematology
department
She manages Facebook and
Twitter accounts for her depart-
ment and the Natural Area
Teaching Lab.
"One of the best things with so-
cial media is the links it provides
to all the different groups in IFAS
and what they are doing," she
said. "I feel like I have a better
understanding of what my col-
leagues are doing, and it didn't
cost me a lot of time to learn."
Social media also is a low-cost
way for IFAS messages to reach
many people, said Cathy Carr, di-
rector of alumni and career serv-
ices for UF/IFAS' College of
Agricultural and Life Sciences
and manager of CALS"' Facebook
and Twitter accounts.
"Because of budget limitations
we have had to stop printing
some of the things we used to
print in the past," Carr said. "So-
cial media doesn't necessarily
make up for that, but we can use
it as an additional tool for spread-
ing the word about programs and
the great things our students, fac-
ulty and staff are doing."
The CALS social media sites
allow students to connect while


staying informed, and its Face-
book page has a following of more
than 2,000.
Ruth Hohl Borger, assistant
vice president for IFAS informa-
tion and communication services,
said social media provides new
ways for the institute to commu-
nicate as more people join social
networks.
"IFAS has established itself on
social media to engage people
and provide them the timeliest
information," she said. "It is rap-
idly becoming the first medium
we use."

sists by doing CPR on a mannequin with assistance
from Rural/Metro Ambulance staff members.


Learning from






the professionals


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

All of a sudden you start chock-
ing. Would you know what to do?
Chances are good that you'd be
prepared if you're a student in
Heather Kadur's class at South
Sumter High School.
As part of their training in the
school's offered Mecca Academy,
South Sumter High School stu-
dents, along with visiting Acad-
emy members from Wildwood
Middle High School, last week
had some up close training on
some emergency medical situa-
tions. With assistance from a
mannequin and several students,
Rural/Metro Ambulance para-
medics and emergency medical
technicians demonstrated life-
saving techniques during a vari-
ety of scenarios in the classroom.
The demonstrations are part of
an on-going partnership between
Sumter County public schools
and the ambulance company pro-
viding county-wide service to
give students real life insights
into emergency service careers.


Left to right: Harsh Patel, 17, lives
in Bushnell and attends South
Sumter High School. He wants to
be a cardiologist. Amanda Sulli-
van, 18, lives in Bushnell and at-
tends South Sumter High School.
She wants to be a dentist. Char-
lene Wester, 18, lives in Oxford
and attends Wildwood High
School.

In addition to Friday's demon-
strations, about 30 students
spend part of their school week
at the Bushnell headquarters for
Rural/Metro Ambulance where
paramedics and EMTs mentor
the students as they learn about
the demanding work of dispatch-
ers taking 911 calls, health pri-
vacy laws and emergency


equipment on today's state-of-
the-art ambulances.
The students are working to-
ward receiving their certified
nursing assistant certification.
"Our students are gaining valu-
able experiences working with
these professionals that will help
them in making decisions about
healthcare and emergency serv-
ices careers," said Christine
Burk, career academy specialist
for Sumter County schools.
Christine Hill, market general
manager for Rural/Metro Ambu-
lance, said emergency workers at
the Sumter headquarters, which
is near the school, enjoy the pro-
gram as much as the students.
"People who choose emer-
gency services as a career have a
passion for helping people," Hill
said. "The students are really en-
gaged and getting a realistic view
of what it's like to handle 911
calls and respond to emergen-
cies."
Hill said that students obvi-
ously don't go on emergency calls.
But she said they get lots of other
valuable instruction.

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

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


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

LET'S TURN YOUR PRIORITIES INTO A PLAN.

It was a day for learning
and for planting as avid
gardeners gathered last
Friday at Dade Park for
some special instruction
for dealing with outdoor
planting.
A hands-on class was
presented by the county's
Master Gardeners Pro-
gram with instruction by
Brooke Moffis, agent of the
University of
Florida/Sumter County Ex-
tension Office.
Moffis gave about a
dozen participants some
informative tips on every-
thing from proper ways to
use mulch to how to prop-
erly plant trees and shrubs.
Participants were able to
assist the county's Master

Five Protective Factors Protective fac-
tors are conditions in families and commu-
nities that, when present, increase the
health and well-being of children and fam-
ilies. They are attributes that serve as
buffers, helping parents find resources,
supports, or coping strategies that allow
them to parent effectively, even under
stress.
When these Protective Factors are pres-
ent and robust, families are more equipped
to create environments for young chil-
dren's optimal development.
Protective Factor #3 Concrete Supports
for Parents: Families whose basic needs
(for food, clothing, housing, and trans-
portation) are met have more time and en-
ergy to devote to their children's safety and
well-being.
When parents do not have steady finan-
cial resources, lack health insurance, or
face a family crisis, their ability to support
their children's healthy development may
be at risk. Some Families also may need as-
sistance connecting to social services sup-
ports such as alcohol and drug treatment,
domestic violence counseling, or public
benefits.
Partnering with parents to identify and
access resources in the community may
help prevent the stress that sometimes pre-
cipitates child maltreatment. Offering con-
crete supports also may help prevent the
unintended neglect that sometimes occurs
when parents are unable to provide for
their children.
How Programs Can Help:
Connect parents to economic resources
such as job training and social services.
Serve as an access point for health care,
child care subsidies, and other benefits.
Provide for immediate needs through a


closet with extra winter coats and a direct
connection to a food pantry; facilitate help
from other parents when appropriate.
Help families access crisis services such
as battered women's shelter, mental health
services, or substance abuse counseling by
helping families make initial calls and ap-
pointments, assisting with transportation,
and providingthe name of a contact person
in addition to a phone number.
Link parents with services providers
who speak their language or share a simi-
lar background, when available,
Train staff to listen for family stress and
initiate positive conversations about fam-
ily needs.
Let parents know about all available
community resources, so they may select
what is most appropriate for their needs.

Raising funds at St. James Missionary Baptist Church


BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County Times
St. James Missionary Baptist Church held a yard sale in April, in an effort to raise funds for their women's program. Church members got together to set out
items and work the sale. Some of the members are shown here, just before rain forced them to relocate all their sale goods under the church overhang.The church
is located in Bushnell at 416 Southland Avenue in Bushnell.


Grace notes



'Hooray!' days


Webster Church of God


Nancy
Kennedy

Special to the
Times


Cleaning out my
email this morning I
found one I had
written to a friend.
It started out: "So it was
a nice, calm day at work
yesterday By the after-
noon I was sitting at my
desk thinking, 'Hooray!'
"It just felt like a good
day to say, 'Hooray!' I even
posted it as my Facebook
status. Hooray!"
I went on to write about
how my phone rang and it
was my husband: "I didn't
do it. It's not my fault," he
said, which is never a
good sign.
Something was wrong
with the computer, he
said. I needed to call Dell
as soon as I got home.
Calls to Dell usually last
a minimum of an hour. My
record is four hours.
"So, I left work early,
which I planned to do any-
way, but I wanted to go to
the gym," I wrote in my
email. "Instead, I chatted
with Chetan from some-
where in Southern India
for two and a half hours. It
only cost me $39.95 for
some software and I could
totally understand his ac-
cent without popping a
blood vessel in my frontal
lobe or anywhere else.
"Hooray!"
I was thinking about
"Hooray!" days a few
weeks ago as I visited a lit-
tle girl I've been following
ever since she was a baby
Now 8, Kinsey was having
a "Hooray!' day of her
own.
She was born with Atyp-
ical Hemolytic Uremic
Syndrome, which de-
stroyed her kidneys. She
also has severe cardiomy-
opathy, an enlargement of
her heart's left ventricle.
I had written about her
when she was a baby and
then when she was five
and again a few weeks
ago.
The day I met up with
her and her family at a
local park Kinsey greeted
me saying "Hooray!" She
had recently been placed
on the kidney and heart
transplant list.
Hooray!
When I asked her what
will happen after her
transplant she giggled and
covered her face. "Then I
can pee," she said.
Because of her kidney
damage, she doesn't pro-
duce urine. When she gets
a new kidney, she will.
Can you imagine her joy
when she can pee like any
other normal little girl?
Hooray!
The day I met with Kin-
sey, her mom, dad,


grandma and cousins
were with her. They all say
"Hooray!" for Kinsey
They said she lights up
their lives.
I talked to her grandma
about some hard stuff. She
said of course they ask
why Kinsey? Why their
family? She said she had
lost a daughter in a car ac-
cident 10 years ago, her
only daughter. Their fam-
ily has seen some sad
times.
She said when Kinsey
was born and she had so
many things wrong with
her. At one point she spent
more days in the hospital
than home. She said she
knew that if any parents
were the right ones to care
for this tiny, fragile child,
it was her son and his
wife.
She had worked with
physically handicapped
children herself years be-
fore and her son, Kinsey's
dad, had shown a genuine
and profound tenderness
toward her students. Kin-
sey's mom is a nurse.
She said God knew what
he was doing in sending
her youngest grandchild
to them, that they've em-
braced the life God has
given them and they all
know that he holds them
in his hands.
As she was talking to me
and as I watched Kinsey's
cousins push her on the
swing at the park I
couldn't help thinking that
when God looks at all of
them and how they all
love and care for her with
great perseverance de-
spite being bone tired, he
surely says, "Hooray!"
Sometimes I'm cynical
and pessimistic and see
glasses half-empty, but
mostly I believe in
"Hooray!" I believe that
God knows when life is
about to hand someone a
curve ball or a lemon or
whatever metaphor you
want to use for a situation
that brings us to our
knees.
I believe that he gives us
sweet moments of grace
on either side and
throughout our hard
times, that we have lots of
opportunities to say
"Hooray!"
I believe that life is
hard, but God is good and
that nothing is impossible
with him and that with
him all things are possi-
ble.
I believe that nothing
can separate us from the
love of God, that he cheers
us on and never lets us go
through dark days alone.
To that, let all God's
people say, "Hooray!"

Wildwood football team has plenty of openings


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

There is a certain perfect
beauty to high school spring foot-
ball.
In the spring, the team is unde-
feated and everyone on the team
is a football hero.
Enthusiasm and positive energy


runs amok.
It is spring after all.
School is almost over and it is
hot out there.
The 2012 Wildwood High foot-
ball team is a place of opportunity.
Gone is the 6-5 team of 2011.
The team loses 14 seniors from
that group and that means lots of
possible starting jobs.
"We have a lot of holes to fill,"


said Wildwood head coach Matt
LaBranche.
Right now, there are 35 Wildcats
sweating it out at spring practices.
The practices culminate in a
spring game with Hawthorne
High School Friday, May 18 at 7
p.m. in Wildwood.
LaBranche said Donte Johnson
has won the quarterback job.
Johnson, Anthony Wong,


Maquice Mitchell and Taylor
Shaw have all impressed the
coach.
"All four are playing at a high
level," said LaBranche.
The team has a new transfer in
Broc Hayes. Hayes came over
from the Villages High School.
After the spring game, the play-
ers have workouts over the sum-
mer and will return to organized


practices in August.
The Wildcats open the regular
season when they face archrival
South Sumter High Friday Aug.
31.
The following Friday, they play
Brooksville Central High at home.
But for now, the Wildcats are
still undefeated and everyone on
the team is still a football hero.

bales and the saloon framework.

"History of Toys and Games". Instead of picking
just one event in history, they wanted to do some-
thing that spanned several generations. Many peo-
ple went by their site, picked up various items and
said, "I remember this!" It was great to know that
we could bring a smile to someone's face for a mo-
ment that took them back to their childhood, said
Katrina Webb. They were "tired of PLAYING
GAMES with cancer!"


Members of the First Baptist Church of Bushnell
formed a team and were settled in for the night.
The team cooked up and sold fresh corn on the
cob as part of their fundraiser.

The public was invited to the ceremony and a shrub/tree giveaway. Resident and retired teacher
Norma King (center) gathers up plants for the teachers who brought children to sing and take part
in the Arbor Day ceremony. Years ago, King was one of the first teachers to have her children par-

ementary school and while the teachers worked with children at the tree planting site, King bagged
up trees for them with help from city employee Gator Sapp (at left).

Report by Donna and
Steve Lind
Tracy's Point Fishing
Lodge weekly fish-
ing report for week
ending May 05, 2012:
Anglers on Lake: 341
Anglers Bass Fishing: 322
Bass caught: 389
Bass Released: 367
Pan Fish caught: 422
Where to begin with this
report, I'm not sure. We
had the best week for fish-
ing so far this year.
I'll begin with the awe-
some bass tournament that
the Sumter Baptist Associ-
ation put on here at
Tracy's Point Fishing
Lodge. Mike Brothers and
his wonderful group of
men put on the best tour-
nament I have ever seen.
Their presentation was
very eye catching and the


professionalism was some-
thing to see. What a won-
derful group of warriors
for Christ.
Steve Davis and company
provided a magnificent
lunch for all. Thank ya'll
for a wonderful day.
Now for the winners:
First place went to Bill
Bell and Frank Bell with a
total weight of 13.14
pounds.
Second place was Mike
Davis and Dennis Hernan-
dez with total weight of
12.12 pounds and they also
won Big Bass with the
weight of 6 1/2 pounds.
Third place was Ronnie
Davidson and Chuck
Cheshre with the total
weight of 12.9 pounds.
Again thanks to all who
helped in this tournament,
it was wonderful!
Now for the Bluegill re-
port. Oh my- yes they're on
the beds! Merle Auvil from


Aripeka caught these
beauties on the south end
of the lake.
Also Larry Birge from
Ridge Manor caught this
nice string (with the help
of his lovely wife,
Barabra).
You can't even imagine the
beds we have seen; you
just need to come see them
for yourself. I would just
like to remind you, time
spent fishing is not only a
stress reliever, but what a
way to spend an afternoon
with our children. It also
gives us alone time to talk
about life.
In closing, we here at
Tracy's Point Fishing
Lodge would like to ex-
press our 'get well soon' to
one of our favorite bass
masters Captain Neal Bed-
ford. We miss you, and
hope to see you soon.
Good luck and good
fishing !

Apply for
By Tony Young
If you haven't been see-
ing the quantity or quality
of game you'd like, you may
want to consider applying
for a special-opportunity
hunt. For the past 15 years,
the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has of-
fered these unique fall-
season hunts for deer, wild
hog and released quail on
the state's arguably best
public hunting lands.
Maybe it's time you look
into getting in on the action
and experience the hunt of
a lifetime.
These extraordinary
hunts offer large tracts of
land with an abundance of
game and low hunting
pressure. All deer hunts
enable you to take only ma-
ture bucks with at least one
antler having four or more
points, one inch or longer.
Hunters can take does dur-
ing archery hunts and, if
they draw an antlerless
deer permit, also during
general gun hunts. This
practice of deer manage-
ment offers hunters excel-
lent chances of taking
quality bucks and the op-
portunity to take a doe on


special-opportunity fall hunts


public land. Wild hogs also
are legal to take, and there
is no size or bag limit on
them.
These special-opportu-
nity deer and wild hog
hunts take place on Fort
Drum (Indian River
County), Lake Panasoffkee
(Sumter County), Triple N
Ranch (Osceola County)
and Green Swamp West
Unit (Pasco County)
wildlife management
areas.
Fort Drum has 20 per-
mits available for its seven-
day general-gun deer and
hog hunt on 20,858 acres;
they cost $50, should you
get drawn. Lake Panasoff-
kee offers eight four-day
archery hunts on the 8,676-
acre tract, which cost $100
each. Triple N Ranch has
two seven-day general-gun
deer and hog hunts on its
15,391 acres, and each per-
mit costs $175.
Green Swamp West Unit
is where James Stovall
took the state's highest-
scoring deer on record a
25-point, nontypical that


netted a 206 Boone-and-
Crockett score. He took the
trophy buck in 1999 after
getting drawn for the spe-
cial-opportunity archery
hunt. The area offers
archery and gun hunts on
34,335 acres, and permits
cost $100 each.
The FWC also has week-
long released-quail hunts
on the Blackwater Carr
Unit in Santa Rosa County
With these hunts, you must
bring and release your own
pen-raised quail. There's
just one $100 permit avail-
able for each of the 16
weeks, and if you're lucky
enough to draw one, you
and up to three of your
friends will have the entire
590 acres to yourselves.
If you'd like to apply for
any of these great hunts,
the first thing you'll need to
do is get a 2012-2013 Spe-
cial-Opportunity Fall Hunt
Worksheet available at
MyFWC.com/License.
Beginning at 10 a.m.
(EDT) on May 1, you can
submit your completed ap-
plication at


MyFWC.com/License or at
any county tax collector's
office or license agent. The
application period runs
through June 5.
These coveted permits
are issued by random
drawing, and you may
apply for as many hunts
and dates as you like to in-
crease your chances of
being selected. You must
include a $5 nonrefund-
able fee for each hunt you
apply for, though hunters
are limited to drawing only
one permit per hunt.
If you're selected in the
random drawing, you have
until the deadline speci-
fied to pay the cost of the
selected hunt. You can do
this online at
MyFWC.com/License or at
any license agent or tax
collector's office. If not,
you forfeit it, and it'll go to
the next applicant selected
in the random drawing.
TonyYoung is the media
relations coordinator for
the FWC's Division of
Hunting andGame Man-
agement. You can reach
him with questions about
special-opportunityhunts

REACHING THE LIMIT


Fishing Lake Panasoffkee, Barbara Whitaker
gets the limits of big Shell Crackers while fish-
ing with her husband.The fishing was fast and
the fish were on the beds ready to eat. The fish
like the full moon for being and that's why
they were all gathered. Fishing this year on
Lake Panasoffkee has been very good for
bass, catfish, shell cracker but the crappie
fishing has been very poor this year. Last year
there was too many little fish taken. In the fu-
ture the hope is Florida Wild Life will make the
size limit 10 inches.This will help our lake and
the Crappie fishing future.

JAKES DAY


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

An estimated 2,000 people
were on hand to take part in
the annual JAKES Day at the
Florida Bass Conservation
Center in Richloam on Sat-
urday, April 28.
The event is hosted by the
Sumter County Longbeards,
as part of their goal with the
National Wild Turkey Feder-
ation to promote life in the
outdoors and preserve the
heritage of woods, water and
hunting.
The JAKES event is de-
signed to pass the heritage
down to the next generation.
Children who may have
never had an opportunity to
pick up a fishing pole, try
their hand at archery or take
aim with a B.B. gun get to ex-
perience the outdoor world
on a jam-packed day of fun.
The targets for B.B. prac-
tice were 3-D objects from
the National Wild Turkey
Federation's Take Aim pro-
gram.
Throughout the day, there
were 1,380 fish caught and
8,000 worms used.
Hundreds of kids lined up
along the banks of the con-
servation ponds and tossed
out a line. Hundreds of them
also went home with their
very own fishing poles, while
others won a variety of door
and contest prizes. One of
those prizes included a two-
man bass boat won by eight-
year-old Wyatt Walters.
Walters was excited about
the win and asked if it was
really his boat, according to
event coordinator Gary Mar-
riage.
Winners in the JAKES
(ages 1 to 12 years) fish com-


petition were Tray Wolf in
first place, Derrick Crawford
in second and Nicole Suggs
in third place.
Xtreme JAKES (13-17
years) top anglers were
Straite Butler, Cameron Lan-
caster and Taylor Messer.
Families come out and
spend the day with the chil-
dren experiencing the out-
doors. They get to try turkey
calling, get up close and per-
sonal with law enforcement,
Smokey the Bear, the Discov-
ery Channel's Swamp Broth-
ers and are event treated to
lunch.
While the Longbeards host
the event, it takes a collection
of agencies to make it hap-
pen.
The list of groups and
donors include Ventura
Ranch, Century Link, T&D
Waste Services, Fish Florida,
FWC Archery, Richloam
Sportsman Association,
Dick's Sporting Goods of
Ocala, the Sumter County
Times, the Sumter County
Farmer's Market, Nature
Coast Financial Advisors,
Angler's Tackle Shack, Beef
O'Brady's the Pink Poodle,
Baker's Nursery and Golf
Carts, the Sumter County
Sheriff's Office, Bill and
Linda Farmer, Operation
Outdoor Freedom Wounded
Warriors, Griff's Automotive,
Sumter Correctional Institu-
tion, Florida Department of
Forestry, Rural Metro EMS,
Sumter County Fire and Res-
cue, the Florida Fish Hatch-
ery and Rick Stout,
conservation center director.
Marriage was also quick to
point out that while he coor-
dinates, it's the Longbeards
and other volunteers who do
the work and make the event
happen.


Archery was only one of
several events on the
agenda for JAKES Day
at Richloam. Here, some
of the JAKES are being
shown how to use a bow
and arrow.


An estimated 2,000 people attended the JAKES event at Richloam. The event is hosted by the Sumter
County Longbeards as part of their goal in the National Wild Turkey Federation, promoting the heritage of
the outdoors. The Longbeards get help from a number of volunteers, donor and other agencies, such as
Fish Florida, the Richloam Sportsman Association and sports shops including Dick's Sporting Goods in
Ocala.


Eight-year-old Wyatt Walters is shown surrounded
by Sumter County Longbeards who presented him
with the two-man bass boat, he won at the event.
Walters was thrilled with his win.

NEWS IN BRIEF
STAFF REPORT

Ed Johnson, heavy equip-
ment operator, was surprised
when he pulled the giant scoop
of earth from the basement he
was digging. "What is that?" he
thought. "An old whiskey bar-
rel or a wooden box of some
kind?" He jumped off his back-
hoe to investigate. As he ap-
proached, his mind was racing.
He could see that the wooden
box was badly decayed and full
of something. As he got closer,
he could make out a sword, an
old canteen and remnants of an
old military uniform. While sift-
ing through the box, he found a
bugle, tattered papers and some
military badges. It appeared to
be the belongings of a soldier of
some kind. He spent the rest of
the day collecting and examin-
ing the items he had found. He
needed to find out more.
The next morning he
stopped by the local coffee shop
to ask questions about the lot he
was digging on. He stopped at
the right place. Three elderly
gentlemen were swapping sto-
ries as they did every morning.
Ed approached the group and
asked if they were from the
area. They all laughed and said
"Who's asking?" Ed explained
that he was building a new
house on a lot he recently pur-
chased and told them where it
was. One gentlemen said, "Oh,
you mean the old Norris place?
That place was demolished over
50 years ago. Been an empty lot
ever since." Ed was intrigued-
he hadn't realized there had
been a house there. "Place
caught fire in the 1940's. I was
just a school boy at the time-
no one was home, but the place
was a total loss. The charred
remains sat there for 4 or 5
years before it was cleaned up.
I walked past that place twice a
day, five days a week, back and
forth from school. Went all the
way to the 8th grade," the fel-
low said with a smile. "After
that, no one ever rebuilt on the
lot. I'm glad to see somebody's
doing something with it. Go
down and talk to Larry at the
court house. He can pull the plat
book and tell you all about it."
The old guy was right, Larry
was a wealth of information.
The original farm house was
built by Elsie and Thomas Lit-
tle back in 1845. They moved
out and sold to Elijah Miller in
1883. Then in 1916, the place
was sold to Henry Norris who
tore down the existing two-
room farm house and built a
new house. That house burned
down in 1943.
All of this was great info,
now what about the military
items? Ed needed to find out
exactly what they were. When
Ed learned that the Treasure
Hunters were coming to town,
he thought this would be his
chance to learn more about
the items he had found. The
advertisement had said that
the experts would offer advice
on any antique and collectible
items and they would do it for
free. It also said that they would
make offers to purchase items.
He wasn't interested in selling,
but you never know. Hey, if the
price is right, who knows?
Ed walked into the hotel
where the show was and fol-
lowed the signs to the meeting
room with great anticipation.
"My heart was actually beat-
ing at twice the normal rate," he
said. "As soon as I walked in I
was welcomed to the show and
given a number. They said it
would be about 10 minutes un-
til they would call my number.
While I waited, I looked at all
the unusual antiques on display.
There were old toys, coins, sil-
ver tea sets and old metal signs.
There was even a sword simi-
lar to mine. My number was
called and it was the moment
I'd been waiting for. I would
finally learn about the items I
had found."
Ed continued, "almost im-
mediately after I sat down,
Greg the antique guru was as-
signed to assist me said, 'hey
nice Civil War sword and bu-
gle. Where did you get them?'
I told him my story and he said
the family most likely buried
the items in honor of the sol-
dier who owned them, and who
most likely fought in the Civil
War." The soldier's uniform, or
what was left of it, the sword
and other items would have
been distributed by the Union
Army. The items were that of
an infantry soldier and dated at
around 1863. Because a bugle
was found, this soldier was
most likely the company bugle
boy. Most buglers were young
boys. Also, the hat in the col-
lection would have fit a very
small head-that of a 12 to 14
year old boy.
Greg also explained that
since the uniform, sword and
other items were together, the
soldier most surely survived the
war and returned home. Ed re-
flected that "learning about the
items was very interesting and
definitely worth the trip. The


entire collection was valued at
$2,200. Most of the value was
the sword and the bugle. I de-
cided to take pictures and sell
the collection. I had a great time
learning about it and thought it
should be in a Civil War enthu-
siast's collection. I'm actually
having a small monument made
in honor of the find and putting
it at the exact location where it
was found."


Treasure Hunters are coming to Lecanto


BY DAVID MORGAN
STAFF WRITER

Got Booty? If you
have a coffee can full of
old coins, an old guitar
or maybe the costume
jewelry your aunt gave
you, it's time to bring it
out of hiding. This week,
Treasure Hunters will be
in town and want to see
what you have. These
Treasure Hunters aren't
armed with a shovel and
metal detector, rather
their weapon of choice
is their expertise and
the collectors they buy
for. You see, these guys
know all about diamonds,
coins, antiques and col-
lectibles, musical instru-
ments and anything that's
old. They are asking you
to bring your booty and


make your best deal.
These guys pay cash for
just about anything that's
old. The items they buy
go straight to collectors
all over the world. How
much is a 1960 Gibson
Les Paul worth? Well, to
some, it might be worth
a couple hundred dol-
lars but to a serious col-
lector it could be worth
thousands, even ten's of
thousands. These guys
are buying for these col-
lectors. They pay more
for the things their col-
lectors want.
The event is free to at-
tend and there is no ob-
ligation to sell anything.
If it's information you
want, that won't cost you
a thing. But be prepared,
as an offer to purchase
your treasures is high-


ly likely. About eighty
percent of the stuff that
comes into the show is
purchased by these hun-
gry treasure hunters.
According to the Trea-
sure Hunters I talked to,
the wait time to get your
items looked at is usually
a half hour or less. Once
there, your items will be
examined, identified and
an offer will quickly fol-
low. Then it's up to you...
do I sell, do I hold out for
more or do I walk? The
whole thing sounds like a
lot of fun and might put
some jingle in your pock-
et. So dig up that booty
and head down to the
show. You might have the
treasure they have been
looking for!


ABOVE A customer brought in his father's coin collection that he had
inherited. He was pleasantly surprised with his offer and decided to
sell the collection. He said that the money would go towards a down
payment on a house for his family.


WE WANT TO
BUY ANY TYPE
OF GOLD
YOU HAVE
GOLD IS ALMOST AT
$1,700 PER OZ.
IT'S TIME TO SELL!

S Hi, I'm
Archie.
I've been
a Trea-
sure Hunt-
er since
1996. Back then, gold
was around $225 per
oz.-now it's six times
that. Gold has never been
this high and may never
be again in my lifetime.
Back in the 1980's,
gold and silver soared in
price, but soon fell back
to rock bottom. Well, it's
a seller's market right
now. The poor world
economy and weak dol-
lar have increased prices
to all-time highs. My ad-
vice to people is to sell
now at the high side.
Many people have
gold in their jewelry box
and don't realize how
valuable it really is. If
you've got old rings,
necklaces, mismatched
earrings or even gold
teeth just sitting in a
dresser drawer, dig it out
and bring it in. You will
be surprised just how
much we can pay you.


Old Coins and


Paper Currency
Did you know that the United States started mint-
ing coins in 1793? All coins are worth something:
old silver dollars, half dollars, quarters and dimes
made before 1965 are mostly silver and worth many
times their face value. A $20 gold coin from the ear-
ly 1900's could be worth $2,000 or more to collec-
tors. If you have any older coins or paper currency,
please come see us. We will buy one coin or million
dollar collections.

SILVER

Hi, I'm Dennis and I am a Treasure
Hunter. Silver is almost $35 per oz. Five
years ago, it was $2.50 per oz. If you
have old silver jewelry, tea sets, sterling
and old silver coins, I want to see it. I
buy hundreds of pounds of silver every
week. If it's silver, please come and see me!

FAMILY FEATURES
Who doesn't love a fiesta?
Americans love to eat
tacos, camitas, tortilla
chips and other traditional
Mexican dishes. However,
many also worry about how healthy these
dishes can be. What they don't realize is if
recipes are prepared with fresh items and
cooked with corn oil, they can actually be
adding benefits to their diet.
According to USDA data, corn oil, such
as Mazola Corn Oil, contains more choles-
terol-blocking plant sterols than any other
cooking oil four times as many as olive
oil. It also contains 40 percent more than
canola oil. This will help the :!i.ilifiinI,
of everyone's fiestas.

Setting a Healthier Table
Whether it's for a fiesta with friends, or a
weeknight dinner, it's possible to set a
healthier table by using Mazola Corn Oil,
so Mazola has partnered with \\.'1ii,., i k.,L
the nation's only patient-centered organiza-
tion serving the 42 million women living
with or who are at risk for heart disease, to
encourage people to pledge to set a healthier
table when they cook. Herb Mesa, "The
Next Food Network Star" finalist, celebrity
chef and personal trainer who is working
'. 11 ',1.1 ,i. I, share the news about plant
sterols, says "Bu I.i! ,.. the 'Set a Healthier
Table' pledge on the MazolaFacebook
page, you can show your commitment to
health for both you and your family."
To take an active role in your health,
visit www.Facebook.com/MazolaBrand
and pledge to increase the amount of plant
sterols in your family's diet. For every
pledge taken, ',. .. 1., i 1 donate $1 (up
to a maximum of $50,000), to \\.iii.iii i.Li
For healthy fiesta recipes, visit

Favorite Foods Can
Help Your Heart
According to the FDA, clinical
studies indicate that, when con-
sumed as part of a diet low in
saturated fat and cholesterol, plant
sterols can help reduce the absorp-
tion of cholesterol, which in turn
can lower LDL cholesterol. And
while 58 percent of Americans
stated in a recent survey they
believe corn oil is bad for you,
corn oil is actually the cooking oil
with the highest amount of plant
sterols per serving.
Incorporating corn oil whenever
you use cooking oil, as well as
consuming other foods containing
plant sterols such as fruits,
vegetables, nuts, seeds, cereals
and legumes can contribute
to a diet low in saturated fat and
cholesterol, which can have an
important effect on health. Learn
more at www.mazola.com.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You
Ewes and Rams will find your ideas
cheered by a mostly receptive flock.
Those few dissenters could well be
turned around by your charm and pow-
ers of persuasion.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It's
time for the bold and beautiful Bovine
to shake off the dust of the past and
shape up with new ideas for the future.
This could surprise some folks, but
they'll soon adjust.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Those
nagging new doubts about an upcom-
ing decision should alert you to step
back (at least temporarily) so you can
reassess its potential impact from a
new perspective.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That
unpleasant situation you hoped would
go away by itself needs immediate
attention before it affects an upcoming
decision. Expect your supporters to
rally around your cause.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) You're
moving up and away from that recent
setback. But remain cautious about
finances. An exercise in thrift today
helps cushion a possible end-of-the-
month money squeeze.
VIRGO (August 23 to September
22) You're still dealing with overtones
of pessimism that cause you to doubt
your ability to make some needed
changes. But the negative pressures

will ease up by week's end.
LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) There could be some fallout from
the way you handled a recent family
problem. But those who k\ ni tih.t \ i t
were in the right won't hesitate to step
in on your behalf.
SCORPIO (October23 toNovember
21) Financial strains ease by week's
end. Meanwhile, focus on cultivating
that new relationship if you hope to
have it blossom into something more
meaningful.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Health matters once
again dominate the week. Be careful
not to ignore recurrences of an old
problem. An almost-forgotten com-
mitment resurfaces.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) The emergence of an
unusual selfish streak could dismay
those close to you. Defy it don't
justify it- so you can become your
gracious self again.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febru-
ary 18) Reassess your decision to stay
with the status quo. It might seem like
the sensible thing to do right now, but
changes around you could make that
choice a risky one.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Move decisively but cautiously when
dealing with a delicate personal mat-
ter. The fewer mistakes you make now,
the less likely it is that the problem will
recur later on.
BORN THIS WEEK: You can find
beauty where many cannot. And you
enjoy sharing your discovery with oth-
ers.

Critter chatter


Unusual friendships


Linda
Graves
Humane
Society


Have watched pro-
grams on the Animal
Planet channel featur-
ing unusual friendships in
the animal kingdom.
Animals of different
species that you would
never think would inter-
mingle have been videoed
to document the unique
friendships they have
formed.
Among the various sto-
ries, some featured were a
cat and a crow over the
course of several years
playing and eating to-
gether; an orangutan and a
hound dog that spend their


days together, playing,
swimming, and going for
walks; and an animal sanc-
tuary where a tiger, a bear,
and a lion live together,
completely comfortable
and happy with each other.
These are just a few of the
many examples of docu-
mented unusual friend-
ships formed between
different species of ani-
mals.
Although I have never
had the opportunity to wit-
ness them myself, I am fas-
cinated by these unique
friendships that I have
read about and seen on TV
What unusual circum-
stances or mysterious
chemistry creates these
highly remarkable friend-
ships to occur?
Recently, while taking
my dogs on our daily walk,
I witnessed an amazing
sight.
Could I believe what I


was seeing?
My neighbor's dog,
Buddy, part Labrador and
part Pit Bull, had his head
through the wire fencing
and was licking our goat
Curly Sue, who was totally
enjoying the experience!
As it turns out, Buddy and
Curly Sue have formed an
odd friendship. Buddy will
start barking for Curly Sue
to come to the fence, or
Curly Sue will start head
butting and bleating at the
fence to call for Buddy
When they are together at
the fence, they enjoy
grooming each other!
Now, you may be think-
ing that they are just two
lonely animals, but that is
far from the truth. Curly
Sue shares the pasture
with five other goats. And
Buddy lives with another
dog and two cats, so he is
not alone either. Yet, for
some strange reason,


Buddy and Curly Sue have an unusual friendship.


Buddy and Curly Sue have
formed this unusual rela-
tionship with each other.
Curly Sue is the only goat
that Buddy grooms, and
Buddy is the only dog that


Curly Sue will approach.
Now, each day as I walk
the dogs, I keep an eye out
for the two friendly com-
rades' amicable meeting at
the fence.


I am taken aback every
time I have the privilege of
watching Buddy and Cur-
ley Sue together, and the
unusual friendship they
have formed.


Crockett is a Spaniel Mix, a sweet senior at about 10
years old looking for a new home. He gets along well
with everyone and have been neutered and is cur-
rent on all vaccines. If you are interested in him or
