The kidnapping happened on Friday, May 11, according to a sheriffs office report. About 9:05 p.m. a Sumter County sheriff's deputy was approached at the Spirit Travel Center, 293 E C.R. 470, Lake Panasoffkee, by a woman who said her husband had been kidnapped. The woman was on the phone with her husband, Joel Johnson, 27, who told the deputy during the phone conversation that at approximately 3:45 p.m. he drove to the Circle K convenient store at the intersection of State Road 48 and C.R. 470 in Bevilles Corner to get gasoline, according to a sheriffs office report. After getting gas, he parked his black Toyota Prius in the parking lot and entered the store to buy some miscellaneous items. He was on his way to work at the time, sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers said. The victim then got back into his unlocked car to leave. At this time, a male subject, who apparently got into the vehicle without Johnsons knowledge, pointed a semi-automatic handgun at him from the back seat, the report states. The victim was told to drive to Interstate 75 and go north. Johnsons wife knew something was wrong when her husbands employer called and said he hadnt arrived at work, Caruthers said. In the meantime, after several hours of driving, the victim informed the suspect that he was running low on gas. The suspect told Johnson to stop at the next rest area, the report states. After stopping at the rest area, the victim was told to keep his head against the steering wheel, and not to look up for five minutes. The suspect then left the car and fled on foot in an unknown location. The deputy advised Johnson by telephone to call 911. Cobb County Georgia responded to his location, at the rest area, at exit 47 of I-75. The victim provided the following description of the suspect: a black male in his late 20s about 5 foot Jodiene and Josh Slocum drove up to the 75 Chrome Shop in Wildwood from Wesley Chapel, just to browse the trucks on display.

The school bus was stopped in the westbound lane of County Road 48 at County Road 628 letting off students at a bus stop, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The students ranged in age from 4 to 11 years old. The collision happened about 3:25 p.m. May 14 when a 2003 Honda SUV was traveling in the westbound lane and failed to stop behind the school bus, the report states. The front of the vehicle collided with the rear of the school bus, the report states. The driver, Marion Giarratano, 94, Bushnell, was not injured, the report states. The lone passenger, Hester Giarratano, 90, also was uninjured. Neither of the occupants required hospitalization and both were wearing seatbelts. There were a total of 22 students inside the bus when the accident happened, the report states. All of the students were returning home from Lake Panasoffkee Elementary School. The five injured children were taken to hospitals in Citrus and Hernando counties. Hiarratano was issued a traffic citation for careless driving. The bus driver, Denise Millett, 48, Lake Panasoffkee, was not injured. The incident remains under investigation.

Sergeant Reid was making his observation checks at approximately 10:42 p.m. when he discovered an inmate lying on the concrete cell bench with what appeared to be something around his neck. Sgt. James Reid observed the inmate was blue in color and not breathing. Entry was made into the cell. Sergeant Reid could not feel a pulse and placed the inmate onto the floor where he began the use of the Ambubag (rescue breather). Placing it over the inmates mouth and nose Reid immediately started squeezing the bag while watching the inmates chest rise. This was done four or five times until he could feel a pulse and the inmate began to breathe on his own. While waiting on EMS the inmate stopped breathing again. Sergeant Reid started using the Ambubag to breath for the inmate until he began breathing again and regained consciousness. For his efforts Sheriff Farmer presented Sergeant James Reid with the Sumter County Sheriffs Office Life Saving Award. Sumter County Detention Center Sergeant James Reid was recently recognized by Sheriff Bill Farmer for saving the life of an inmate on Feb. 11. Sergeant recognized for saving inmate Five arrested in separate burglary investigations The Sumter County Sheriffs Office has made a series of arrests on unrelated burglaries throughout the county. The first burglary occurred on May 8, in the 12000 block of C.R. 685 in Webster. Kenneth M. Walters, 36, and Michelle C. Ewell, 36, of Webster were arrested and charged with burglarizing a structure on the property. Walters was found removing property on May 8, but was intercepted by neighbors. The following day, May 9, both he and Ewell returned and this time, Ewell loaded property from the structure into the vehicle she was driving and fled the scene. They were apprehended a short time later by sheriffs deputies at a nearby residence. On May 10, 2012, sheriffs deputies responded to another burglary in the 5000 block of C.R. 707 in Webster. Omar Aleman, 34, of Webster and Jesse J. Wells, 19, of Center Hill, were arrested and charged with burglarizing a residence. Both were observed by neighbors removing a washing machine from the residence. Sheriffs deputies located both suspects at a nearby residence where they were arrested. In the early morning hours of May 11, a fifth burglary suspect was arrested. William A. Pray, 42, of Ocala was arrested and charged with burglarizing B & S Auto in Wildwood. At approximately 01:53 a.m., sheriffs deputies responded to an alarm call at the business. Deputy Adkison and his K9 partner, Cerry, responded and while checking the perimeter of the business, discovered Pray and a second suspect near one of the businesses entrances. Both suspects fled but K9 Cerry tracked and located Pray a short distance away. Pray was charged with Burglary, Trespassing, and Resisting an Officer Without Violence. He is being held without bond. At the time of his arrest, Pray was on probation for Carjacking out of Marion County. Kenneth M. Walters Michelle C. Ewell Omar Aleman Jesse J. Wells William A. PrayPolice report

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 17, 2012 Bushnell Fall Festival plans start, helpers needed E ven though its only spring, plans and preparations have already begun for the 2012 Bushnell Fall Festival, scheduled for Oct. 20 (its always on the 3rd Saturday of the month of October).

Shell be happy to meet with you and utilize your gifts and talents. The more folks get involved, the better the festival will be, as fresh ideas are always welcome! So, mark your calendars and dust off those cowboy boots and ten-gallon hats, cuz were gonna rustle up a heapin helpin of good, ole fashion fun at this years Rodeo Round-Up! Strategy-Spending Mismatch Last month, with much fanfare, the Administration rolled out a new defense strategy. (Actually, it was not a strategy, but a Defense Guidance). In it, the Administration stated it would not have a hollow force, but one that the president said would focus on a broader range of challenges and opportunities, including the security and prosperity of the Asia Pacific. (sic) The president further said: we will ensure that our military is agile, flexible, and ready for the full range of contingencies. Frequently, documents like these provide pithy soundbites and well-meaning ideas, but when they are pitted against the realities of the budget, they are just empty words. Next week, when the Administrations budget is released, we will see whether the DOD adheres to this guidance. Already, we know the budget will be significantly smaller by about 10 percent. If the military is going to concentrate on a broader range of challenges, then much must change with 10 percent less money. If the Asia-Pacific region is a priority, we should look to see if more forces are dedicated to the region not just in temporary status like marines exercising in Northern Australia, but permanently stationed. We should look to see if funding for each of the Services Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines is adjusted according to the strategy and not on an equal basis. We should look to see what is being acquired and which acquisition programs are cut. I, for one, am skeptical about the results. I believe the cuts will be about equal to the Departments that while the Army will take more cuts, it is already the largest accounting for 35 percent of the defense budget (Navy, Marines 25 percent and the Air Force less than 20 percent). It remains to be seen if the final allocation follows the strategy. It hasnt in the past. Mike Emig Air Force Association Ocala, FL LSCC wants you to vote on its new name The State Board of Education, during its March 27 meeting in Miami, unanimously approved LSCCs proposal for a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Organizational Management. The application now is in the hands of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the colleges regional accreditation agency, with the final decision slated for its June meeting. This significant change is most appropriate as the college observes its 50th Anniversary. A time when it not only reflects on its history, celebrates its current accomplishments, and recognizes the people who made it all possible, but also to look toward a future that will continue to benefit its communities. LSCC hopes to offer its first four-year degree during Spring Term, January 2013. When many Florida community colleges acted upon the Legislatures approval to offer three and four-year degree programs, this sector of public education entered a new era. Though LSCCs mission is and will continue to be to provide its district quality, open access education featuring associate degree and technical certificate programs, the word community traditionally designates schools offering only two-year degrees. LSCC needs to change its name to reflect the fact that it will soon offer bachelors degrees. A cross section of members representing Lake and Sumter County interests met monthly for over a year, and an extensive workforce survey was underwritten to decide which degree programs would best serve our graduates and area employers. The same thorough process involving community, student and personnel focus groups consistently narrowed the list to six names. Now, we are asking all of our districts citizens to make their voices heard so that our Board can make the best final decision. A brief Renaming Survey can be linked from LSCCs website at www.lscc.edu, under the homepage News column, or you can go directly to the site via www.lscc.edu/about/Pages/Survey.aspx. Click the green Vote Here... link and insert the posted password. The ten questions include your ranking of the top six names, as well as space for a write-in vote and comments. Hit the submit button, and you just played a role in LSCCs future. Build-A-Bear helps fund HS/SPCA for spay/neuter equipment The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation recently awarded the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. a $2,099 grant towards the purchase of surgical equipment needed to complete a basic medical surgical suite in their DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) trailer. Combining this grant with other funds reserved for this goal will allow the Society to provide for more on-site and mobile spay/neuter events and for disaster readiness. HS/SPCA grant writer, Mary Chiles said this Build-A-Bear grant will bring us that much closer to our target goal of $15,000. Once that goal is reached, well begin purchasing the equipment and submitting our application for a premise permit. After State approval, our veterinarian will be able to use the trailer as an operation suite. The Society is seeking private monetary donations or gently used veterinary equipment from local veterinary practices in order to reach this goal sooner, thus minimizing the number of unwanted puppies and kittens who would be born to an uncertain future in the underserved areas within Sumter County. The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is committed to making life more bearable for children, families and pets, in need of a helping paw. With the sale of each full-sized Bearemys Kennel Pals friend a collection of Build A Bear Workshop plush dogs one dollar is donated to domestic pet programs including local animal shelters, stray pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and pet education programs around the country. These funds are available to qualified non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada. Visit www.buildabear.com for more information. For the complete surgical equipment list, contact Mary Chiles of the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County and help complete the funding of this necessary project, call her at 352-793-9117, donate online at www.hsspca.org or mail your earmarked Surgical Equipment donation to PO Box 67, Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538.

OPINIONS INVITED Guest column Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor Water district advice A s more people focus on their lawns and landscaping this time of year, the Southwest Florida Water Management District promotes Florida-friendly fertilizing practices. Florida-friendly fertilizing is an annual campaign encouraging residents to responsibly maintain their lawns. Recent studies have shown rising nitrate levels in many local water bodies can be traced to fertilizer. Nitrate is a form of nitrogen found in inorganic fertilizers. When fertilizer is applied correctly, the lawn absorbs the nitrogen. However, fertilizers applied improperly run off lawns and into local water bodies, harming water quality and threatening the plants and animals that depend on clean water for survival. Florida-friendly fertilizing emphasizes these tips: Use slow-release fertilizers. Always follow package directions. Dont fertilize before a heavy rain. Fertilize only when needed and only when grass is actively growing. Residents can visit www.WaterMatters.org/fertilizing for step-by-step instructions on fertilizing appropriately and to watch corresponding how-tovideos. Residents also can order a free Do-It-Yourself Guide to Florida-Friendly Fertilizing for more information. Fertilizing appropriately is one of the nine principles Florida-Friendly Landscaping, a set of guidelines developed by the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences to protect our natural resources while promoting beautiful landscapes.

T he other day a coworker posted on Facebook that it had been the week from hell. We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad. We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed. Cranky people called, which didnt help our own crankiness. We scowled. We skulked. We wished we were anywhere but here. It was one b-a-d week. One of my favorite childrens books is Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, by Judith Viorst. Alexander had gone to bed with gum in his mouth and woke up with gum in his hair. He tripped over his skateboard and dropped his sweater in the sink. His brothers got prizes in their cereal boxes and Alexander only got cereal. He was scrunched in the car on the way to school. His mother forgot to pack dessert in his lunch box. Later, the dentist found a cavity and then Alexander hurt his foot on the elevator door and then fell in a mud puddle. When his brother called him a crybaby, Alexander punched him and then got in trouble for being muddy and fighting. Then at the shoe store his brothers got cool shoes with stripes but they were all sold out in Alexanders size. They made me buy plain old white ones, he lamented, but they cant make me wear them. Next, Alexander went to his dads office and knocked stuff all over the desk and messed up the window blinds until his dad said not to come and pick him up anymore. And then Alexanders day got worse his mom served lima beans for dinner and Alexander hates limas. There was kissing on TV, and he hates kissing. His bath was too hot, he got soap in his eyes, his marble went down the drain and he had to wear his railroad train pajamas and Alexander really hates his railroad train pajamas. Throughout the whole day Alexander kept saying that it was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, and that he wanted to move to Australia. As his mom kissed him good night she told him, Some days are like that, even in Australia. Some weeks are like that. Some lifetimes are like that terrible, horrible, no good and very bad. Soulwrenching and spirit-crushingly bad. In a sermon I listened to recently, the pastor talked about people with crushed spirits, those who have endured trouble after trouble, heartache upon heartache, one disappointment after another. This goes beyond plain white sneakers or no prizes in a cereal box. Some people can never seem to break free of feelings of unworthiness and shame, of feeling less than others, not as smart, not as gifted. The pastors message was simple, but so penetratingly powerful. For those with a crushed spirit he gave three points to remember: God loves you, Christs love is more powerful than your past and that in Christ you are not who or what you used to be. Unless you see it in someone else or experience it yourself, its difficult to explain but its true: Gods love and his power truly can change a human heart. The timid become bold. The wounded become whole. Those who have been broken and beaten down, whether by others or by themselves, rise up with strength in their inner being. If God is for you, the scripture says, who could possibly be against you? But you, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love, and you never, never quit (Psalm 86:15, The Message). Thats good to remember whenever youre going through a bad day or a bad year or a bad life. God loves you. Hes on your side. Christs love is more powerful than your past. In Christ, you are not who or what you used to be. You are brand new, clean, whole. With God, there is such a thing as second, third, seventy-fifth chances. There is starting over, re-invention, re-creation. A bad life doesnt have to end badly. And its never too late because God never, never quits on those he loves.

The thank-yous, he said, adding that some of the seniors were still bringing money by to show their appreciation and help with funds. This was the first year they hosted a spring picnic, but the group has been organized and busy in Bushnell for about a decade now. Hill said one of the things that sparked the creation of the group was his fathers funeral in Georgia. The entire community came and showed their support, taking care of things to help his family. At one point, he and member Charles Castle began chatting about helping others in the community. We just started helping families with funerals, cooking and so forth, he said, noting that at first they were the Bushnell Brothers Club. Eventually they formed a non-profit organization and today, they continue with the cooking at funerals, but also do things like lawn work and household repairs for the elderly and support the youth. We cater to the elderly and the kids we sponsor the youth baseball team, he said of the 10U AA Florida Travel Team. On Mothers Day, member Larry McLaughlin gives a flower to the mothers in the community and at Thanksgiving the mens group provides a turkey and food basket to between five and 10 needy families. When you give out those turkeys thats a joyful thing, he said. Because its a small community, theres a network of communication that enables them to keep a handle on residents needs. Churches are a main communication for us, he said. As for raising money, they do that through their membership dues, but they also had help with the picnic from several sponsors, including Evans Ace Hardware, LDL Enterprises, Inc., Main Street Auto Sales, Speedy Tires and Central Packing Co. Inc. An estimated 300 people attended the event, which included a barbecue lunch, music, games and a chance to visit with neighbors. Theyre working grow the organization, with the hope of being able to do more for the community. Next, they plan to do some improvements to the local cemetery. The mens group meets at 2 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. The meeting location changes each month. For more information, contact the club at P .O. Box 1586 Bushnell, Fl. 33513.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 17, 2012, P AGE 9 Sumter sports Well, its another chance for the South Sumter High School football team to sweat out another spring opponent. Citrus High comes to Bushnell Friday, May 18 for a 7:30 p.m. contest. South Sumter High has 60 athletes and 10 of the 11 defensive starters return. South Sumter High head coach Inman Sherman is very happy with what he sees on the gridiron. Everybody has been dong really well, Sherman said. The first week was especially productive. We have had a college coach at practically every practice. They are evaluating our players. We have had real spirited practices. Sherman is checking out three quarterbacks. There are three quarterbacks, he said. Clay Simmons, is a senior, Levi Sapp, a returning junior and Rease Kinley will be a sophomore. Starting free safety Keanu Kiki Neal will be preparing for his final high school season. He is set to play for the University of Florida the following season. Spring doesnt have the pressure of the fall. It is a time for teaching basic football. It helps that the Raiders coaching staff doesnt change. We are trying to teach fundamentals, said Sherman. We have kept that staff for a long time at least 12 or 15 years. We have a good thing here. People come to stay. After the Citrus game, the players will work out over the summer and return to school in August. They will play Wesley Chapel for a preseason game on Thursday. Aug. 23. The Raiders open the regular season with a game with Wildwood at home. The class of 2013 has plenty of players on this team and Sherman feels very good about this group. We have a big number of seniors, he said. This is a really great group of kids. We are really looking forward to what this team will do. The biggest thing is 10 of 11 of the defensive players will be back. We have a nose guard named Tevin Jones, he is 300 pounds plus. Our Brandon Curtis and Darien Williston will be on the line. All the kids are pretty good players. Xavier Story will replace Davey Vera at defensive back. South Sumter gets crack at Citrus Friday L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent GETTING THE GOLD Scott Simon and palomino Sunny, who took gold at the Florida Special Olympics Equestrian competition. A two-day event, the competition drew 110 riders from 17 counties. Sumter Special Olympics Equestrian team members are: Skylar Rowe, Rick Terio, Cyndi Turnbull (Legend Farms), Rose Marie Martin (owner of Legend Farms) Scott Simon and Melissa Macintosh. By Rose Marie Martin Sumter County resident Scott Simon returned to Sumter County with the gold medal after his win in the Special Olympics Florida Equestrian competition. The challenge was held on Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5 in the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. For Simon, a resident of The Villages, the challenge began in February, when he started his training at Legend Farms in Bushnell. His favorite riding discipline is Gymkhana. He had always excelled in Barrel Racing. When Scott was a teenager, his family always had horses on their farm in Barrington Hills, Illinois. In 2007, an accident occurred that left Scott with brain damage and short term memory problems. Since he started therapeutic riding, he has increased confidence, is physically stronger and improved balance. As of February, Scott had not been astride a horse in 20 years. When an opening became available at the Legend Farms Therapeutic Riding Center, Scott was teamed up with a Palomino gelding named Sunny and the games began. In March, Scott and Sunny competed in the Special Olympics Area 6 Qualifying Show held in Pinellas County. He won blue ribbons in barrels and the working trail course. April was a busy month for Special Olympics too. The Sumter County Equestrian Team was part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run held at the Villages Polo Grounds and the run from Coleman to the historic Sumter County Courthouse in Bushnell. Finally in May, Scott, Sunny and their support team headed for the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa for the two-day event. There were 110 riders from 17 counties. Each rider was allowed to compete in two of nine different classes that were offered at the event. They were: Dressage, English Equitation, Stock Seat Equitation, Working Trails, Showmanship at Halter or Bridle and Unified Sports Drill Team. Scott competed in Barrel Racing and Working Trails. He won the first place gold medal in Barrel Racing and the fifth place rosette in Working Trails. Sumter County Special Olympics Equestrian Team is based at Legend Farms in Bushnell. Legend Farms is owned by Ed and Rose Marie Martin. The couple has been involved with special needs riders and 4-H since 1961. The therapeutic equestrian program is also a community service project for the 4-H Muckateers Club. Several members traveled to Tampa to take part in the Opening Ceremonies and to assist in the care of Sunny. The Martins plan to expand the program to serve more riders. At this time they have three horses that are trained by Cyndi Turnbull. They are trained to work with riders who have balance and coordination disabilities. There is also a special cart adapted to carry a wheelchair for those who love to work with horses, but cant sit astride in a saddle. It gives members an opportunity to work on the trail course and perform in parades. Anyone interested in sponsoring a horse or rider can contact Mrs. Martin at 727-423-6586. For more information about Sumter Special Olympics, contact coordinator Lindsey Smith at 352-454-2202.

On Friday evening, May 11, more than 70 family, friends, coworkers and local dignitaries gathered at the Wildwood Community Center to celebrate the graduation of 21 students of the first-ever Paramedic training program offered in Sumter County. The training program, which was held in County classroom facilities in Bushnell, was a joint partnership between the Sumter County BOCC and Lake Technical Institute. Eleven of the graduates were employees with Sumter County Fire & EMS. The celebration was the culmination of more than 13 months of lecture, labs, clinical rotations and grueling examinations. With the course behind them, the students only have the hurdle of the State Certification examination remaining between them and their ability to begin using their new skills to help the sick and injured. During the ceremony, course instructors shared achievements and anecdotes regarding each of the students, who they came to know very well over the last year. Throughout the presentation, the instructors commented how well each student performed and the high level of achievement attained by all the class members. One instructor shared how the students had to work their shift for 24 hours, then come to class all the next day, then spend the following day on clinical rotations, and then back to work again; leaving little time for self or family. No wonder smiles filled the room from proud wives, parents and children who were relieved that the long process had finally come to an end. The graduates from Sumter County Fire & EMS were Damon Allen, Anthony Dawkins, Jeremy Feil, Willie Haugabrook Jr., Brian Hoogewind, Harold Jacques, Aaron Ketcham, Matthew Longest, Fredrick Pitts Jr., Justin Thalgott and Robert Wozniak. They were joined by fellow graduates Joseph Belanger, Jordan Harger, Jonathan Kegan, Geoffrey Martz, Brady Merritt, Jacob OReilly, Mark St. Pierre, Victor Virgilio III, Lee Warrick and Nicholas Zancanata.

The facility is in the Ocala National Forest, and registration for the 2012 summer sessions has already begun. The summer camp is for boys and girls, ages 9-14, and focuses on fish and wildlife conservation, outdoor skills and firearm safety. This year, the camp offers six oneweek sessions beginning June 17. Sessions run Sunday through Friday. The camps primary goal is to help children become conservation-minded citizens and good stewards of our fish and wildlife resources. They learn these skills and values through fun, educational hands-on activities such as fishing, canoeing, swimming, hiking, archery and many other outdoor programs. Tuition is only $295 per camper per week and includes lodging, food, program materials and instruction. Each week-long session is divided into four groups, based on individual interest: hunter safety, archery and bowhunting skills, wilderness outdoor skills, and the exciting anglers program. Campers who want to learn about fish and fishing will want to sign up for our Anglers Fish Camp, said Greg Workman, director of the Ocala Outdoor Adventure Camp. This is our second year offering it, and it was a big hit last year. Campers in this program will learn about fish biology, identification, fishing techniques and boating safety and enjoy many traditional camp activities, such as swimming and canoeing. Each camper will receive a rod and reel with tackle when they complete the program. For the camper who wants to take the hunter safety course required before purchasing a hunting license the hunter safety group is the way to go. The wilderness outdoor skills group will experience several outdoor adventures, including an overnight primitive camping trip and hiking on the Florida Trail. Before leaving base camp, campers prepare for the experience by learning the fundamentals of surviving in the wilderness, orienteering, backpacking and preparing a campsite. The Ocala Conservation Center is on a 57-acre peninsula on Lake Eaton, Marion County. The area is rich in history and wildlife, yet it is only 20 miles east of Ocala, in the heart of the Ocala National Forest. The facilities are rustic, yet comfortable, with air-conditioned cabins and dining hall. The classrooms are fishing piers, shooting ranges, nature trails, Lake Eaton and the vast Ocala National Forest. For more information or to register, go to www.OcalaAdventureCamp.com or call 352-625-2804.

The Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway Corridor Advocacy Group debuted their first Poker Run Event on the second to last Saturday in March this year. The event started in historic downtown Webster, traveled along the proposed byway route for almost 50 miles, and ended at Marsh Bend Outlet Park in Lake Panasoffkee later that afternoon. Organized to generate public exposure for the proposed scenic byway corridor and local business community, the event was well attended by participants from various locations and was considered a big success. Thanks to the many generous donations from the Sumter County government, business community and local residents, the Poker Run winner awards and raffle prizes were shared by quite a few participants. Special acknowledgement goes to the Panavista Lodge, Pops Bait and Tackle Shop, Walmart, Wildwood Marketplace Shopping Plaza, Atkins North America, AMC Movie Theater, Sumter Sunshine Community Foundation, UF/IFAS Sumter County Extension Office Master Gardeners, Evans Ace Hardware, Webster Farm Supply, Beef O Bradys, Hayseed Caf, Dotties Salon Central, Tips 2 Toes Beauty Salon, Gator Harley Davidson, Sumter County Chamber of Commerce, Donna Lester, Joyce Hanson, Judie Mueller, Vivian Hall, Gayle Teerman, The City of Webster, and the Sumter County BOCC and Sheriffs Department for their generosity is greatly appreciated by the Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway Corridor Advocacy Group and certainly ensured the success of this inaugural event. Various locations along the route were used as places to stop and collect cards, such as the VFW Post 10137, the Sumter Historical Society, the Sumterville Eagles Club, Lake Panasoffkee Moose Club, the UF/IFAS Extension, the Florida National Cemetery, Dade Battlefield Historic State Park and Werda-Hecamiat. After visiting these places, the group met at Marsh Bend Outlet Park for the awards ceremony and a cookout. The grand prize winner of the day was A.P Ward Pond with an Aces full of Queens full house! Mr. Pond, who lives along the Byway, was awarded a weekend at the Pana Vista Lodge on Lake Panasoffkee for collecting this great poker hand. The runner up was Charles Griffin, who won a fishing tour on Lake Panasoffkee out of the WerdaHecamiat lodge donated by Pops Bait and Tackle Shop. Many other raffle prizes were awarded and everyone enjoyed the event. The Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway Corridor Advocacy Group is the volunteer organization seeking official designation as a Scenic Corridor in the Florida Department of Transportations Florida Scenic Highways Program.

T he Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County recently held a celebration to commemorate its 30 years of service to the community. The celebration was open to the public, complete with snacks and cake. A good time was had by all. Paula Gilgen, a retired educator and recent new author made a generous donation to the Humane Society/SPCA. Proceeds came from an e-mail campaign of her book sales and our local Humane Society/SPCA was honored to receive her check of $250. The book C.A.T., A Novel For Young People, is about the adventures and trials of a lost purebred domesticated cat. It champions the cause of animal welfare and educates young people of the plight of lost and homeless animals. The Humane Society/SPCA is grateful to people like Gilgen for their contributions to their ongoing lifesaving efforts. The attending public was invited to roam the Humane Society/SPCAs 5 acre property that has been beautifully transformed. Rescued horses roam freely from their barn into their fenced pasture. There are 3 rescued pigs that have a large secured area to enjoy. Even farm animals have found a safe haven with the organization. Our local Humane Society/SPCA is so much more than a rescue for dogs and cats. They have an adorable lion headed rabbit and several cute guinea pigs for adoption. The Societys grounds have been transformed into a picture of serenity for animals once abandoned and abused. Visiting hours at the Humane Society/SPCA are between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. They are located at 994 C.R. 529A in Lake Pansoffkee. Some of the many cats that are available for adoption can be seen at the location, while other cats and dogs are in the care of foster homes. You can view the many animals up for adoption on the Societys website at: www.hsspca.org. Check it out, you may be surprised at the many different species of animals that the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County cares for. Keep in mind all that our local Humane Society/SPCA does for homeless, abandoned and abused animals in our community. With no governmental funding, the Society depends completely on donations and grants. It is so important that we citizens of Sumter County support their life saving work. Donations can be dropped off at their office, mailed in, or make a donation on line on their website. All of the animals in the Societys care need food and medical care, so donations are always needed. Animal lovers unite and support our local Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. The benefit of your donations is evident in the health and well being of the animals in their care.

In spite of the steady mild wind, we have seen huge stringers of shellcrackers with some of the largest slabs of the year. Folks come on out and enjoy what we all love around Lake Panasoffkee; the people are so friendly around here, even our guests make themselves at home. For instance, I enjoyed some of those shellcrackers with cheese grits on Sunday morning. What a way to start my Mothers Day morning! Well in closing, dont wait to long to come out, because I have a lot of grits, and you know what goes with grits! Richard Winningham with a nice string, way to go Richard! George and Trenten Weatherly from Perry had a wonderful day, see I told yall fishing with our kids is a good thing. Trenten was so excited with his 3 pound shellcracker. Russell Stevens, who works his heart out for the correctional institute, took a break to nail these shellcrackers and Blue Gill. He would not reveal where he caught them, but rumor has it, he was close to the mouth of Colemans Landing. Tyler Davies and his father Tom, spending a little time together at Tracys Point on Lake Panasoffkee. Tom generally spends a few minutes swimming prior to fishing, but this week he refrained from that practice allowing Tyler the opportunity to catch these fine fish. Robbie Wills from Dade City with his bass. He was very happy! He caught it on the north end with a top water plug. These beautiful shellcrackers were too many for the man to get in the picture. He told me that the fish were prettier than him, so he hopped out of the photo. His name is Neal Cruce (05-12-2012-001) from Greenville. There are so many fish being caught right now that we cant even get all the pictures in one weeks paper.

The kidnapping happened on Friday, May 11, according to a sheriffs office report. About 9:05 p.m. a Sumter County sheriff's deputy was approached at the Spirit Travel Center, 293 E C.R. 470, Lake Panasoffkee, by a woman who said her husband had been kidnapped. The woman was on the phone with her husband, Joel Johnson, 27, who told the deputy during the phone conversation that at approximately 3:45 p.m. he drove to the Circle K convenient store at the intersection of State Road 48 and C.R. 470 in Bevilles Corner to get gasoline, according to a sheriffs office report. After getting gas, he parked his black Toyota Prius in the parking lot and entered the store to buy some miscellaneous items. He was on his way to work at the time, sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers said. The victim then got back into his unlocked car to leave. At this time, a male subject, who apparently got into the vehicle without Johnsons knowledge, pointed a semi-automatic handgun at him from the back seat, the report states. The victim was told to drive to Interstate 75 and go north. Johnsons wife knew something was wrong when her husbands employer called and said he hadnt arrived at work, Caruthers said. In the meantime, after several hours of driving, the victim informed the suspect that he was running low on gas. The suspect told Johnson to stop at the next rest area, the report states. After stopping at the rest area, the victim was told to keep his head against the steering wheel, and not to look up for five minutes. The suspect then left the car and fled on foot in an unknown location. The deputy advised Johnson by telephone to call 911. Cobb County Georgia responded to his location, at the rest area, at exit 47 of I-75. The victim provided the following description of the suspect: a black male in his late 20s about 5 foot Jodiene and Josh Slocum drove up to the 75 Chrome Shop in Wildwood from Wesley Chapel, just to browse the trucks on display.

Sergeant Reid was making his observation checks at approximately 10:42 p.m. when he discovered an inmate lying on the concrete cell bench with what appeared to be something around his neck. Sgt. James Reid observed the inmate was blue in color and not breathing. Entry was made into the cell. Sergeant Reid could not feel a pulse and placed the inmate onto the floor where he began the use of the Ambubag (rescue breather). Placing it over the inmates mouth and nose Reid immediately started squeezing the bag while watching the inmates chest rise. This was done four or five times until he could feel a pulse and the inmate began to breathe on his own. While waiting on EMS the inmate stopped breathing again. Sergeant Reid started using the Ambubag to breath for the inmate until he began breathing again and regained consciousness. For his efforts Sheriff Farmer presented Sergeant James Reid with the Sumter County Sheriffs Office Life Saving Award. Sumter County Detention Center Sergeant James Reid was recently recognized by Sheriff Bill Farmer for saving the life of an inmate on Feb. 11. Sergeant recognized for saving inmate Five arrested in separate burglary investigations The Sumter County Sheriffs Office has made a series of arrests on unrelated burglaries throughout the county. The first burglary occurred on May 8, in the 12000 block of C.R. 685 in Webster. Kenneth M. Walters, 36, and Michelle C. Ewell, 36, of Webster were arrested and charged with burglarizing a structure on the property. Walters was found removing property on May 8, but was intercepted by neighbors. The following day, May 9, both he and Ewell returned and this time, Ewell loaded property from the structure into the vehicle she was driving and fled the scene. They were apprehended a short time later by sheriffs deputies at a nearby residence. On May 10, 2012, sheriffs deputies responded to another burglary in the 5000 block of C.R. 707 in Webster. Omar Aleman, 34, of Webster and Jesse J. Wells, 19, of Center Hill, were arrested and charged with burglarizing a residence. Both were observed by neighbors removing a washing machine from the residence. Sheriffs deputies located both suspects at a nearby residence where they were arrested. In the early morning hours of May 11, a fifth burglary suspect was arrested. William A. Pray, 42, of Ocala was arrested and charged with burglarizing B & S Auto in Wildwood. At approximately 01:53 a.m., sheriffs deputies responded to an alarm call at the business. Deputy Adkison and his K9 partner, Cerry, responded and while checking the perimeter of the business, discovered Pray and a second suspect near one of the businesses entrances. Both suspects fled but K9 Cerry tracked and located Pray a short distance away. Pray was charged with Burglary, Trespassing, and Resisting an Officer Without Violence. He is being held without bond.

So, mark your calendars and dust off those cowboy boots and ten-gallon hats, cuz were gonna rustle up a heapin helpin of good, ole fashion fun at this years Rodeo Round-Up! Strategy-Spending MismatchLast month, with much fanfare, the Administration rolled out a new defense strategy. (Actually, it was not a strategy, but a Defense Guidance). In it, the Administration stated it would not have a hollow force, but one that the president said would focus on a broader range of challenges and opportunities, including the security and prosperity of the Asia Pacific. (sic) The president further said: we will ensure that our military is agile, flexible, and ready for the full range of contingencies. Frequently, documents like these provide pithy soundbites and well-meaning ideas, but when they are pitted against the realities of the budget, they are just empty words. Next week, when the Administrations budget is released, we will see whether the DOD adheres to this guidance. Already, we know the budget will be significantly smaller by about 10 percent. If the military is going to concentrate on a broader range of challenges, then much must change with 10 percent less money. If the Asia-Pacific region is a priority, we should look to see if more forces are dedicated to the region not just in temporary status like marines exercising in Northern Australia, but permanently stationed. We should look to see if funding for each of the Services Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines is adjusted according to the strategy and not on an equal basis. We should look to see what is being acquired and which acquisition programs are cut. I, for one, am skeptical about the results. I believe the cuts will be about equal to the Departments that while the Army will take more cuts, it is already the largest accounting for 35 percent of the defense budget (Navy, Marines 25 percent and the Air Force less than 20 percent). It remains to be seen if the final allocation follows the strategy. It hasnt in the past. Mike Emig Air Force Association Ocala, FLLSCC wants you to vote on its new nameThe State Board of Education, during its March 27 meeting in Miami, unanimously approved LSCCs proposal for a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Organizational Management. The application now is in the hands of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the colleges regional accreditation agency, with the final decision slated for its June meeting. This significant change is most appropriate as the college observes its 50th Anniversary. A time when it not only reflects on its history, celebrates its current accomplishments, and recognizes the people who made it all possible, but also to look toward a future that will continue to benefit its communities. LSCC hopes to offer its first four-year degree during Spring Term, January 2013. When many Florida community colleges acted upon the Legislatures approval to offer three and four-year degree programs, this sector of public education entered a new era. Though LSCCs mission is and will continue to be to provide its district quality, open access education featuring associate degree and technical certificate programs, the word community traditionally designates schools offering only two-year degrees. LSCC needs to change its name to reflect the fact that it will soon offer bachelors degrees. A cross section of members representing Lake and Sumter County interests met monthly for over a year, and an extensive workforce survey was underwritten to decide which degree programs would best serve our graduates and area employers. The same thorough process involving community, student and personnel focus groups consistently narrowed the list to six names. Now, we are asking all of our districts citizens to make their voices heard so that our Board can make the best final decision. A brief Renaming Survey can be linked from LSCCs website at www.lscc.edu, under the homepage News column, or you can go directly to the site via www.lscc.edu/about/Pages/Survey.aspx. Click the green Vote Here... link and insert the posted password. The ten questions include your ranking of the top six names, as well as space for a write-in vote and comments. Hit the submit button, and you just played a role in LSCCs future. Build-A-Bear helps fund HS/SPCA for spay/neuter equipment The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation recently awarded the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. a $2,099 grant towards the purchase of surgical equipment needed to complete a basic medical surgical suite in their DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) trailer. Combining this grant with other funds reserved for this goal will allow the Society to provide for more on-site and mobile spay/neuter events and for disaster readiness. HS/SPCA grant writer, Mary Chiles said this Build-A-Bear grant will bring us that much closer to our target goal of $15,000. Once that goal is reached, well begin purchasing the equipment and submitting our application for a premise permit. After State approval, our veterinarian will be able to use the trailer as an operation suite. The Society is seeking private monetary donations or gently used veterinary equipment from local veterinary practices in order to reach this goal sooner, thus minimizing the number of unwanted puppies and kittens who would be born to an uncertain future in the underserved areas within Sumter County. The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is committed to making life more bearable for children, families and pets, in need of a helping paw. With the sale of each full-sized Bearemys Kennel Pals friend a collection of Build A Bear Workshop plush dogs one dollar is donated to domestic pet programs including local animal shelters, stray pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and pet education programs around the country. These funds are available to qualified non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada. Visit www.buildabear.com for more information. For the complete surgical equipment list, contact Mary Chiles of the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County and help complete the funding of this necessary project, call her at 352-793-9117, donate online at www.hsspca.org or mail your earmarked Surgical Equipment donation to PO Box 67, Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538.

Florida-friendly fertilizing is an annual campaign encouraging residents to responsibly maintain their lawns. Recent studies have shown rising nitrate levels in many local water bodies can be traced to fertilizer. Nitrate is a form of nitrogen found in inorganic fertilizers. When fertilizer is applied correctly, the lawn absorbs the nitrogen. However, fertilizers applied improperly run off lawns and into local water bodies, harming water quality and threatening the plants and animals that depend on clean water for survival. Florida-friendly fertilizing emphasizes these tips: Use slow-release fertilizers. Always follow package directions. Dont fertilize before a heavy rain. Fertilize only when needed and only when grass is actively growing. Residents can visit www.WaterMatters.org/fertilizing for step-by-step instructions on fertilizing appropriately and to watch corresponding how-tovideos. Residents also can order a free Do-It-Yourself Guide to Florida-Friendly Fertilizing for more information. Fertilizing appropriately is one of the nine principles Florida-Friendly Landscaping, a set of guidelines developed by the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences to protect our natural resources while promoting beautiful landscapes.

The other day a coworker posted on Facebook that it had been the week from hell. We had all felt it. It was as if a black cloud hovered over us, raining down all kinds of bad. We had made mistakes. Tempers flared. Fingers pointed. Cranky people called, which didnt help our own crankiness. We scowled. We skulked. We wished we were anywhere but here. It was one b-a-d week. One of my favorite childrens books is Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, by Judith Viorst. Alexander had gone to bed with gum in his mouth and woke up with gum in his hair. He tripped over his skateboard and dropped his sweater in the sink. His brothers got prizes in their cereal boxes and Alexander only got cereal. He was scrunched in the car on the way to school. His mother forgot to pack dessert in his lunch box. Later, the dentist found a cavity and then Alexander hurt his foot on the elevator door and then fell in a mud puddle. When his brother called him a crybaby, Alexander punched him and then got in trouble for being muddy and fighting. Then at the shoe store his brothers got cool shoes with stripes but they were all sold out in Alexanders size. They made me buy plain old white ones, he lamented, but they cant make me wear them. Next, Alexander went to his dads office and knocked stuff all over the desk and messed up the window blinds until his dad said not to come and pick him up anymore. And then Alexanders day got worse his mom served lima beans for dinner and Alexander hates limas. There was kissing on TV, and he hates kissing. His bath was too hot, he got soap in his eyes, his marble went down the drain and he had to wear his railroad train pajamas and Alexander really hates his railroad train pajamas. Throughout the whole day Alexander kept saying that it was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, and that he wanted to move to Australia. As his mom kissed him good night she told him, Some days are like that, even in Australia. Some weeks are like that. Some lifetimes are like that terrible, horrible, no good and very bad. Soulwrenching and spirit-crushingly bad. In a sermon I listened to recently, the pastor talked about people with crushed spirits, those who have endured trouble after trouble, heartache upon heartache, one disappointment after another. This goes beyond plain white sneakers or no prizes in a cereal box. Some people can never seem to break free of feelings of unworthiness and shame, of feeling less than others, not as smart, not as gifted. The pastors message was simple, but so penetratingly powerful. For those with a crushed spirit he gave three points to remember: God loves you, Christs love is more powerful than your past and that in Christ you are not who or what you used to be. Unless you see it in someone else or experience it yourself, its difficult to explain but its true: Gods love and his power truly can change a human heart. The timid become bold. The wounded become whole. Those who have been broken and beaten down, whether by others or by themselves, rise up with strength in their inner being. If God is for you, the scripture says, who could possibly be against you? But you, O God, are both tender and kind, not easily angered, immense in love, and you never, never quit (Psalm 86:15, The Message). Thats good to remember whenever youre going through a bad day or a bad year or a bad life. God loves you. Hes on your side. Christs love is more powerful than your past. In Christ, you are not who or what you used to be. You are brand new, clean, whole. With God, there is such a thing as second, third, seventy-fifth chances. There is starting over, re-invention, re-creation. A bad life doesnt have to end badly. And its never too late because God never, never quits on those he loves.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

The thank-yous, he said, adding that some of the seniors were still bringing money by to show their appreciation and help with funds. This was the first year they hosted a spring picnic, but the group has been organized and busy in Bushnell for about a decade now. Hill said one of the things that sparked the creation of the group was his fathers funeral in Georgia. The entire community came and showed their support, taking care of things to help his family. At one point, he and member Charles Castle began chatting about helping others in the community. We just started helping families with funerals, cooking and so forth, he said, noting that at first they were the Bushnell Brothers Club. Eventually they formed a non-profit organization and today, they continue with the cooking at funerals, but also do things like lawn work and household repairs for the elderly and support the youth. We cater to the elderly and the kids we sponsor the youth baseball team, he said of the 10U AA Florida Travel Team. On Mothers Day, member Larry McLaughlin gives a flower to the mothers in the community and at Thanksgiving the mens group provides a turkey and food basket to between five and 10 needy families. When you give out those turkeys thats a joyful thing, he said. Because its a small community, theres a network of communication that enables them to keep a handle on residents needs. Churches are a main communication for us, he said. As for raising money, they do that through their membership dues, but they also had help with the picnic from several sponsors, including Evans Ace Hardware, LDL Enterprises, Inc., Main Street Auto Sales, Speedy Tires and Central Packing Co. Inc. An estimated 300 people attended the event, which included a barbecue lunch, music, games and a chance to visit with neighbors. Theyre working grow the organization, with the hope of being able to do more for the community. Next, they plan to do some improvements to the local cemetery. The mens group meets at 2 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. The meeting location changes each month. For more information, contact the club at P.O. Box 1586 Bushnell, Fl. 33513.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY17, 2012, PAGE9 Sumter sports Well, its another chance for the South Sumter High School football team to sweat out another spring opponent. Citrus High comes to Bushnell Friday, May 18 for a 7:30 p.m. contest. South Sumter High has 60 athletes and 10 of the 11 defensive starters return. South Sumter High head coach Inman Sherman is very happy with what he sees on the gridiron. Everybody has been dong really well, Sherman said. The first week was especially productive. We have had a college coach at practically every practice. They are evaluating our players. We have had real spirited practices. Sherman is checking out three quarterbacks. There are three quarterbacks, he said. Clay Simmons, is a senior, Levi Sapp, a returning junior and Rease Kinley will be a sophomore. Starting free safety Keanu Kiki Neal will be preparing for his final high school season. He is set to play for the University of Florida the following season. Spring doesnt have the pressure of the fall. It is a time for teaching basic football. It helps that the Raiders coaching staff doesnt change. We are trying to teach fundamentals, said Sherman. We have kept that staff for a long time at least 12 or 15 years. We have a good thing here. People come to stay. After the Citrus game, the players will work out over the summer and return to school in August. They will play Wesley Chapel for a preseason game on Thursday. Aug. 23. The Raiders open the regular season with a game with Wildwood at home. The class of 2013 has plenty of players on this team and Sherman feels very good about this group. We have a big number of seniors, he said. This is a really great group of kids. We are really looking forward to what this team will do. The biggest thing is 10 of 11 of the defensive players will be back. We have a nose guard named Tevin Jones, he is 300 pounds plus. Our Brandon Curtis and Darien Williston will be on the line. All the kids are pretty good players. Xavier Story will replace Davey Vera at defensive back. South Sumter gets crack at Citrus Friday LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent GETTING THE GOLD Scott Simon and palomino Sunny, who took gold at the Florida Special Olympics Equestrian competition. A two-day event, the competition drew 110 riders from 17 counties. Sumter Special Olympics Equestrian team members are: Skylar Rowe, Rick Terio, Cyndi Turnbull (Legend Farms), Rose Marie Martin (owner of Legend Farms) Scott Simon and Melissa Macintosh. By Rose Marie Martin Sumter County resident Scott Simon returned to Sumter County with the gold medal after his win in the Special Olympics Florida Equestrian competition. The challenge was held on Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5 in the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. For Simon, a resident of The Villages, the challenge began in February, when he started his training at Legend Farms in Bushnell. His favorite riding discipline is Gymkhana. He had always excelled in Barrel Racing. When Scott was a teenager, his family always had horses on their farm in Barrington Hills, Illinois. In 2007, an accident occurred that left Scott with brain damage and short term memory problems. Since he started therapeutic riding, he has increased confidence, is physically stronger and improved balance. As of February, Scott had not been astride a horse in 20 years. When an opening became available at the Legend Farms Therapeutic Riding Center, Scott was teamed up with a Palomino gelding named Sunny and the games began. In March, Scott and Sunny competed in the Special Olympics Area 6 Qualifying Show held in Pinellas County. He won blue ribbons in barrels and the working trail course. April was a busy month for Special Olympics too. The Sumter County Equestrian Team was part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run held at the Villages Polo Grounds and the run from Coleman to the historic Sumter County Courthouse in Bushnell. Finally in May, Scott, Sunny and their support team headed for the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa for the two-day event. There were 110 riders from 17 counties. Each rider was allowed to compete in two of nine different classes that were offered at the event. They were: Dressage, English Equitation, Stock Seat Equitation, Working Trails, Showmanship at Halter or Bridle and Unified Sports Drill Team. Scott competed in Barrel Racing and Working Trails. He won the first place gold medal in Barrel Racing and the fifth place rosette in Working Trails. Sumter County Special Olympics Equestrian Team is based at Legend Farms in Bushnell. Legend Farms is owned by Ed and Rose Marie Martin. The couple has been involved with special needs riders and 4-H since 1961. The therapeutic equestrian program is also a community service project for the 4-H Muckateers Club. Several members traveled to Tampa to take part in the Opening Ceremonies and to assist in the care of Sunny. The Martins plan to expand the program to serve more riders. At this time they have three horses that are trained by Cyndi Turnbull. They are trained to work with riders who have balance and coordination disabilities. There is also a special cart adapted to carry a wheelchair for those who love to work with horses, but cant sit astride in a saddle. It gives members an opportunity to work on the trail course and perform in parades. Anyone interested in sponsoring a horse or rider can contact Mrs. Martin at 727-423-6586. For more information about Sumter Special Olympics, contact coordinator Lindsey Smith at 352-454-2202.

On Friday evening, May 11, more than 70 family, friends, coworkers and local dignitaries gathered at the Wildwood Community Center to celebrate the graduation of 21 students of the first-ever Paramedic training program offered in Sumter County. The training program, which was held in County classroom facilities in Bushnell, was a joint partnership between the Sumter County BOCC and Lake Technical Institute. Eleven of the graduates were employees with Sumter County Fire & EMS. The celebration was the culmination of more than 13 months of lecture, labs, clinical rotations and grueling examinations. With the course behind them, the students only have the hurdle of the State Certification examination remaining between them and their ability to begin using their new skills to help the sick and injured. During the ceremony, course instructors shared achievements and anecdotes regarding each of the students, who they came to know very well over the last year. Throughout the presentation, the instructors commented how well each student performed and the high level of achievement attained by all the class members. One instructor shared how the students had to work their shift for 24 hours, then come to class all the next day, then spend the following day on clinical rotations, and then back to work again; leaving little time for self or family. No wonder smiles filled the room from proud wives, parents and children who were relieved that the long process had finally come to an end. The graduates from Sumter County Fire & EMS were Damon Allen, Anthony Dawkins, Jeremy Feil, Willie Haugabrook Jr., Brian Hoogewind, Harold Jacques, Aaron Ketcham, Matthew Longest, Fredrick Pitts Jr., Justin Thalgott and Robert Wozniak. They were joined by fellow graduates Joseph Belanger, Jordan Harger, Jonathan Kegan, Geoffrey Martz, Brady Merritt, Jacob OReilly, Mark St. Pierre, Victor Virgilio III, Lee Warrick and Nicholas Zancanata.

Would they love the chance to learn about fish and wildlife from experts and hike or canoe with other children their age? Then sign them up for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Ocala Outdoor Adventure Camp while space is still available. The facility is in the Ocala National Forest, and registration for the 2012 summer sessions has already begun. The summer camp is for boys and girls, ages 9-14, and focuses on fish and wildlife conservation, outdoor skills and firearm safety. This year, the camp offers six oneweek sessions beginning June 17. Sessions run Sunday through Friday. The camps primary goal is to help children become conservation-minded citizens and good stewards of our fish and wildlife resources. They learn these skills and values through fun, educational hands-on activities such as fishing, canoeing, swimming, hiking, archery and many other outdoor programs. Tuition is only $295 per camper per week and includes lodging, food, program materials and instruction. Each week-long session is divided into four groups, based on individual interest: hunter safety, archery and bowhunting skills, wilderness outdoor skills, and the exciting anglers program. Campers who want to learn about fish and fishing will want to sign up for our Anglers Fish Camp, said Greg Workman, director of the Ocala Outdoor Adventure Camp. This is our second year offering it, and it was a big hit last year. Campers in this program will learn about fish biology, identification, fishing techniques and boating safety and enjoy many traditional camp activities, such as swimming and canoeing. Each camper will receive a rod and reel with tackle when they complete the program. For the camper who wants to take the hunter safety course required before purchasing a hunting license the hunter safety group is the way to go. The wilderness outdoor skills group will experience several outdoor adventures, including an overnight primitive camping trip and hiking on the Florida Trail. Before leaving base camp, campers prepare for the experience by learning the fundamentals of surviving in the wilderness, orienteering, backpacking and preparing a campsite. The Ocala Conservation Center is on a 57-acre peninsula on Lake Eaton, Marion County. The area is rich in history and wildlife, yet it is only 20 miles east of Ocala, in the heart of the Ocala National Forest. The facilities are rustic, yet comfortable, with air-conditioned cabins and dining hall.

The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County recently held a celebration to commemorate its 30 years of service to the community. The celebration was open to the public, complete with snacks and cake. A good time was had by all. Paula Gilgen, a retired educator and recent new author made a generous donation to the Humane Society/SPCA. Proceeds came from an e-mail campaign of her book sales and our local Humane Society/SPCA was honored to receive her check of $250. The book C.A.T., A Novel For Young People, is about the adventures and trials of a lost purebred domesticated cat. It champions the cause of animal welfare and educates young people of the plight of lost and homeless animals. The Humane Society/SPCA is grateful to people like Gilgen for their contributions to their ongoing lifesaving efforts. The attending public was invited to roam the Humane Society/SPCAs 5 acre property that has been beautifully transformed. Rescued horses roam freely from their barn into their fenced pasture. There are 3 rescued pigs that have a large secured area to enjoy. Even farm animals have found a safe haven with the organization. Our local Humane Society/SPCA is so much more than a rescue for dogs and cats. They have an adorable lion headed rabbit and several cute guinea pigs for adoption. The Societys grounds have been transformed into a picture of serenity for animals once abandoned and abused. Visiting hours at the Humane Society/SPCA are between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. They are located at 994 C.R. 529A in Lake Pansoffkee. Some of the many cats that are available for adoption can be seen at the location, while other cats and dogs are in the care of foster homes. You can view the many animals up for adoption on the Societys website at: www.hsspca.org. Check it out, you may be surprised at the many different species of animals that the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County cares for. Keep in mind all that our local Humane Society/SPCA does for homeless, abandoned and abused animals in our community. With no governmental funding, the Society depends completely on donations and grants. It is so important that we citizens of Sumter County support their life saving work. Donations can be dropped off at their office, mailed in, or make a donation on line on their website. All of the animals in the Societys care need food and medical care, so donations are always needed. Animal lovers unite and support our local Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. The benefit of your donations is evident in the health and well being of the animals in their care. FRIDAY, MAY 18Health fair/expo The Villages Colony Enrichment Center and over 45 health/wellness providers will be holding a free community health fair/expo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lake Miona Recreation enter, The Villages.

In spite of the steady mild wind, we have seen huge stringers of shellcrackers with some of the largest slabs of the year. Folks come on out and enjoy what we all love around Lake Panasoffkee; the people are so friendly around here, even our guests make themselves at home. For instance, I enjoyed some of those shellcrackers with cheese grits on Sunday morning. What a way to start my Mothers Day morning! Well in closing, dont wait to long to come out, because I have a lot of grits, and you know what goes with grits! Richard Winningham with a nice string, way to go Richard! George and Trenten Weatherly from Perry had a wonderful day, see I told yall fishing with our kids is a good thing. Trenten was so excited with his 3 pound shellcracker. Russell Stevens, who works his heart out for the correctional institute, took a break to nail these shellcrackers and Blue Gill. He would not reveal where he caught them, but rumor has it, he was close to the mouth of Colemans Landing. Tyler Davies and his father Tom, spending a little time together at Tracys Point on Lake Panasoffkee. Tom generally spends a few minutes swimming prior to fishing, but this week he refrained from that practice allowing Tyler the opportunity to catch these fine fish. Robbie Wills from Dade City with his bass. He was very happy! He caught it on the north end with a top water plug. These beautiful shellcrackers were too many for the man to get in the picture. He told me that the fish were prettier than him, so he hopped out of the photo. His name is Neal Cruce (05-12-2012-001) from Greenville. There are so many fish being caught right now that we cant even get all the pictures in one weeks paper.
