Gas stealing device 45 drug charges filed after crash A Tampa man ended up with 45 drug charges filed against him last week after he fled from a crash on the turnpike outside the Okahumpka Service Plaza near Wildwood. Zachary Robert Dunn, 23, was charged with 25 counts of transferring harmful chemicals, four counts of possession of drug equipment, seven counts of possession of marijuana, four counts of possession of drugs, four counts of possession of cocaine and one count of possession of marijuana, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Dunn was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $157,045. The incident happened on the evening of Monday, May 14, when a trooper was dispatched to a traffic crash in the southbound lane of the turnpike outside the plaza, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Details about the crash were not available. Troopers reported that Dunn, the driver in the accident, was walking away from the crash site and seen dumping some items near bushes. The investigating trooper reported that he made contact with Dunn and saw money and bags containing a white substance which was later field tested and identified as cocaine, and another yellow substance. Dunn appeared to be impaired either by alcohol or drugs, the reports states, because of his constant rambling and inability to stand without assistance or leaning on one of the patrol cars. A rolled up $20 bill was found directly next to the white substance, according to the report. Dunn was also wearing a black jacket that contained the same white and yellow substance. While checking Dunns vehicle, troopers found multiple CO2 (carbon dioxide) cartridges used for huffing, the inhalation of volatile substances for their intoxicating effect. The troopers also found scales, multiple small and large bags used to distribute drugs, a large cooler and book bag containing seven large bags containing marijuana and a small glass jar containing marijuana. Troopers also found two bags containing mushrooms and four prescription pills without a legal prescription.

This tractor-trailer truck was consfiscated by the Sumter County Sheriffs Office after law enforcement investigators say they determined that gasoline was being illegally pumped by truckers who were using an electronic device to interfere with the gasoline pump readings calculating the actual gallons being pumped.As the price of fuel increases, criminals seem to be getting savvy about ways of stealing it. Thats what sheriffs office officials say they are now dealing with regarding a device they havent seen before used to illegally steal gasoline. The electronic device was attached from a Miami-based tractor-trailer truck carrying pineapples to a fuel pump at the Wilco Travel Center, 744 E. State Road 44, in Wildwood last week. The two truckers filling their tanks were arrested. The device was detected by store employees who became suspicious and called law enforcement officers. Investigators arrived and determined that the device is similar to the gas stations fuel pump gallon counter, according to a sheriffs office report. The device alters the amount of gasoline that is shown as being pumped on the store register. It would show that the fuel was being pumped at a much slower rate than it was being dispensed, according to the report. The incident happened about 9:40 p.m. on May 14, according to the report. Store employees noticed how long the two men were at the pump while the store register only showed they had pumped 29 gallons of diesel fuel. In actuality, it was determined that the men had stolen 280 gallons of fuel valued at $1,108, the report states. Arrested were Ivan Rogel, 45, and Carlos Prieto, 34, both of Miami, were each arrested on one count of theft and criminal mischief. Both men were placed in the Sumter county Sheriffs Office Detention Center. Bond was set at $5,000 each. But Sumter County is not alone in dealing with the device. A week before the Wildwood arrest, a Texas police department sent out a law enforcement notification that they had arrested a suspect in April for doing the exact same Young writers meet author BOBREICHMAN Editor Inside Memorial Day event planned The Florida National Cemetery Joint Veterans Committee (JVC) will sponsor the annual Memorial Day Ceremony at Florida National Cemetery on Monday, May 28, at 11 a.m. Major General Jeffrey E.

In that case, Sinton Police Department officials say a suspect had repeatedly stolen gasoline from the local truck stop using the devise on numerous occasions. Police say more than $500,000 worth of fuel had been stolen by means of the device since December 2011. According to the Texas police department, these are the commonalities they have seen in the cases: The suspect has Florida ties, uses a metal device for the theft, uses radio controlled devices, has modified or multiple diesel fuel tanks, travels with others and may have keys to pumps. Based on the theft device, the Sumter County Sheriffs Office is recommending that fuel businesses adopt prepay policies, said sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. This is an unusual device and its something that we havent seen before, he said. Its best if businesses take precautions. Caruthers also said the department has been experiencing a larger increase in fuel thefts. Five cases were reported in March, he said and so far for May there have been three, he said. Any time gas prices start getting up toward the amount they are now, we do see an increase in gas thefts, he said. Good folks try and find ways to save on consumption but it also brings out unscrupulous people who will steal fuel and some are even profiting by reselling it. GAS continued from Page 1 ceremony. Seating is limited; those attending are encouraged to arrive early, wear comfortable clothing and bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit upon. The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. rain or shine. The Joint Veterans Committee and the Florida National Cemetery extend an invitation to all veterans organizations and the general public to take this opportunity to remember and honor the men and women who served and gave so much to protect our great nation. Organizations with colors are invited to participate in the massing of colors at the beginning of the program. Veterans organizations should plan to arrive by 9:30 a.m. The Avenue of Flags consisting of approximately 400 flags will be on display along the roadways of the cemetery. These flags were donated to the cemetery by the next of kin of deceased veterans and were once draped over the caskets or cremation urns of veterans.

PAGE4 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY24, 2012 SCARC takes high marks in rating by state agency SCARC Inc. has made the list for providing top standard group homes for persons with developmental disabilities. The Sumter County agency was ranked high in a report by the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). The agency recently published its website updated scorecards on several Medicaid waiver providers who serve Floridians with developmental disabilities. The agency also ranked three types of group homes: Intensive Behavior, Behavior Focused, and Standard. SCARC was rated high in the standard group homes category. SCARC and other providers contract with the state of Florida under the Home and Community-Based Services waivers. APD Director Michael Hansen said, I think the public wants to know how well service providers are meeting the needs of Floridians with developmental disabilities. We have improved this process of scoring providers by including them in focus groups, and we will continue to refine the scoring process as we move forward. All state agencies are working to develop scorecards to increase transparency and accountability to the public. The APD provider scorecards are intended to measure, evaluate, and improve performance on key measures that are important to Floridians with developmental disabilities. The long-term goal is to improve the quality of statefunded services. Customers, families, and waiver providers are asked to submit suggestions to their local area office on ways to improve the ranking process. The scorecards are posted on the agencys website APDcares.org. APD annually serves more than 50,000 Floridians with the developmental disabilities of autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, spina bifida, and PraderWilli syndrome. For more information on the agency, visit APDcares.org or call toll-free 1-866-APD-CARES (1-866-2732273). They get away with itThe members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been working in Washington on 41 of the first 127 days of this year. They are planning to be in session half of the remaining weeks. How long would you keep your job if you worked like that? Even when they show up they fail to address the biggest problems facing the country. It would take a 50 percent tax increase in order to balance the so called budget yet they are avoiding the problem while the debt grows by $1,200 billion per year. The real problem is you and I let them get away with it. They work for us and we pay them $174,000 per year to do it. Make a commitment to write or call your representative once a week and express your views. See how they respond and let that be your guide to voting this November.Irving B. Welchons III Charlotte, N.C. Gay/lesbian marriageLast week I listened to the leader of the free world state that he believes in marriage for gays and lesbians. How can this be when marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman that unites them to procreate? Marriage is a holy thing not to be taken lightly. After listening to all the news anchors and guest speakers on television I began to understand that what Mr. Obama meant was that gays and lesbians should be allowed to marry in order to get marriage tax credits, child tax credits, and other monetary awards. How sad, that our president would lower the sacrament of marriage to the level of a dollar. The United States of America is founded on Christian/Judaea values. How dare he attempt to rend the very fabric of our moral values. Obama has gone too far.

The Coleman Public Library has been silent for months now. This library was one of the investments in our children and the communitys future. The Coleman City Council has asked that we, the chair and co-chair of this department come up with a budget and ways for the library to pay for its own operation. We are asking anyone in our community for ideas, resources for funding, volunteers and any suggestions that can help us reinvest in the children of our community. Our children and seniors cannot walk or drive approximately four or twelve miles to the nearest library. Please call or send any responses to Coleman City Hall, P .O. Box 456, Coleman, or call 748-1017.Cynthia D. Martin, Coleman vice president Coleman Library Chair Christine R. Hardin and Irma Lou Mae Fruci, co-charsFlorida Independent Voting Whatever happened to truth and honesty, integrity, responsibility, and humility as attributes we demand of our elected officials, not to mention their pledge to defend and uphold the Constitution of this Nation? Most consider it naive to expect politicians to behave by these ideals. Perhaps it is even impossible to do considering human nature. But shouldnt we hold those we elect to represent us to such ideals instead of more readily allowing for the excuse that its against human nature? Our indifference is what has created the self-serving free reign most politicians have adopted over these past decades. Most politicians are addicted to power and money as well. They get so focused into these temptations little else is important. This translates into how they cater so diligently to the special interests with a never ending supply of that money, and sense of power. They rationalize that they are doing their jobs; they are legislating for the benefit of their supporters, so the cycle reinforces their addiction to it. How then do we expect these same elected officials to all of a sudden start doing the right thing by representing the will of the majority, the will of the very people who put them in the positions they have? It will not and cannot happen. The temptations are established and too great to resist, and the addiction to them too deep in the psych of those gratifying themselves with it. Both parties cater to the above addictions, and both, while each actually a minority in terms of total registered voters, control their respective primaries to the exclusion of the real majority; the independent voters who comprise 40 percent of total registered voters! Even worse, all elections and all primaries are funded by taxpayer dollars. Independents therefore are taxed, but without representation at the primary election level. This level however is as important, if not more so then the General Elections, because it is where those nominees come from who go to the General Election and who are almost exclusively the party members who will be groomed and prepared to become the new generation of addicted elected officials. Ending this vicious circle is the only way we will ever get out of the mess we are in. Only when the majority is empowered can we purge government of self-serving interests and replace it with the will of the people. No Republican or Democrat majority can do this. They owe to many favors and too many votes to the legislation that benefits their masters; the special interests that spend billions of dollars to guarantee themselves laws that exclude them from social, moral, financial, and ethical responsibility. We can take back our government, but first we must reclaim our Democracy. Thats when the majority decides the laws, not the minority as exists now.

During the past several decades more and more businesses are providing creditcard-like shopping cards to use either for purchasing their items or for getting special discounts. Im getting to the point where Im starting to cringe when a business employee hands me yet another application for one of their cards. These cards didnt exist several decades ago, and you could get discounts without them. Yes, they were simpler times. Now these cards are everywhere and they are used for more and more things. If you go to the drug store, you have a special card to use that gives you special discounts. The same is true for the grocery store. Use their card, get a special discount. Granted, the discounts are nice, but the cards, well, theyre not so nice. I now have a card for the dentist. A card that keeps track of what paint Im buying. I have a card for drug prescriptions. And I have a card for my health insurance. I even have a card to get me inside one of our newspaper offices. It comes with a photo though. But, what I dont have is any place to conveniently keep all these cards. Right now, they are all in my wallet, which I can no longer even close let alone get into my back pocket. Trying to sit down with that thing in my pocket wouldnt even work. Id probably just tumble out of the chair and onto the floor. What I dont know, is what other guys are doing with all these cards. Where are you keeping them? Ive noticed that a few of my actual credit cards are cracking because of the pressure created by me trying to cram all these other cards into my wallet. Not to mention, it takes me a heck of a long time to go through them all just to find the one I need that is, if they dont all fall on the floor when I try and remove them from one of the wallet compartments. Is it just me or this whole card thing becoming a crisis? Do you just finally give up the discounts to save your own sanity? Any solutions out there? And please, dont suggest using the key ring size cards, thats just too ridiculous.

Gay marriagePresident Obama has come out in support of gay marriage. In 2008 he said in an interview with Rick Warren that he believed that marriage was between one man and one woman. Now he supports something God calls an abomination. The five major world religions, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism recognize and uphold the natural, heterosexual understanding of marriage. By contrast, these religions teach that homosexual behavior is sinful or wrong. The Bible teaches God created Adam, then Eve (not Ed) to be a suitable helper. God delivered a female to Adam. He created them male and female, blessed them and directed them to be fruitful and multiply. Two women or two men can not multiply by natural means. The Bible, Gods inspired Word, clearly teaches that any form of homosexual behavior is sinful. Jesus underscored the fact that God made them male and female. For this reason man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife. The Bible says in Romans 1:18-28 what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them so that men are without excuse for although they knew God they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. These scriptures point out that because man has suppressed the truth about God, refused to glorify or worship God as God, and declined to be thankful. He has abandoned men and women to their perversions. God gave them up to dishonorable passions, their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another. God called this type of behavior a perversion. Sex is a wonderful gift God has given us for our enjoyment, but it is to be enjoyed within the bonds of marriage as God established, one man and one woman. Thirty states have voted on constitutional amendments to opt for the exclusivity of traditional marriages. Forty one states have statues that define marriage as one man and one woman. Without a doubt exclusivity in marriage is what the majority of American people want. In America we elevate marriage in our laws over other relationships because marriage has proven over millennia to be an obvious societal good. Marriage law does not discriminate. Marriage is open to any two individuals provided they meet certain criteria regarding age and blood relationship, and provided the individuals are of the opposite sex. Homosexuals seek to completely redefine and thus undermine the foundational institution of marriage. They seek not to be left alone, not to be simply tolerated or respected, but to force their views on the rest of society. They are asking each of us to radically change our understanding of marriage and family. And this new definition of marriage and family will be force-fed to our children at every age level. Groups like ACLU would try to force churches to perform weddings in order to maintain their taxexempt status. Marriage is a sacred, legal, and social union ordained by God to be a life-long, sexually exclusive relationship between one man and one woman. Let us as voters stand united in this.

The collision happened at 7:45 p.m. on May 21 at the 310 mile marker on the interstate, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Truck driver James Edward Jent, 40, Alabama, was traveling northbound in the outside lane of the interstate, the report states. Trucker driver Eddie B. PPool, 44, Kentucky, was also traveling northbound, in the inside lane. Jent was starting to change lanes when the left side of the trailer being towed by his truck struck the right side of PPools truck, the report states. It forced the truck onto the shoulder of the roadway where it collided with the guardrail and jackknifed. Jents vehicle also traveled onto the shoulder and collided with the guardrail, the report states. The impact caused the truck to overturn facing north in the center median. Both of the drivers received minor injuries and were treated at local hospitals. A passenger in PPools truck, Heather Louise Holland, 28, Hernando, also received minor injuries, the report states. All three persons were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. Jent was charged with improper change of lane, according to the report. An investigation continues. Two tractor-trailer trucks collide on interstate BOBREICHMAN Editor A motorcyclist died Sunday morning when he crashed into another vehicle on Interstate 75 near Wildwood. The accident happened at 10:20 a.m. when motorcyclist Kirk A. Toune, 47, Lakeland, driving a 2011 Kawasaki, crashed into the back of a 2008 Cadillac when the car slowed to travel by a pre-existing traffic crash scene with emergency workers actively working it, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The accident happened at the 325 milepost. The driver of the Cadillac, Sally T. Lusby, 79, Lakeland, was not injured in the collision. Toune failed to slow down while he was traveling northbound in the inside lane behind the Cadillac, the report states. His motorcycle struck the rear of the car and overturned and threw Toune off the vehicle. He was flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center and shortly died from injuries sustained during the crash, according to the report. The incident remains under investigation. The collision happened at 7:45 p.m. on May 21 at the 310 mile marker on the interstate. Crash kills motorcyclist BOBREICHMAN EditorSumter senior graduates with perfect attendanceI got 12 hours sleep a night, I was in bed at 8 p.m., said Samantha Knapp of her school years. She ate well, took care of herself and Friday night shes set to graduate South Sumter with perfect attendance not just as a high school student, but throughout her school years, dating all the way back to elementary school. Set your mind on your goal and you will succeed. When you say you cant do it, youre basically setting yourself up, she encourages and warns at the same time. While she had an occasional headache, I never really got sick until I got a job, she said. When she did get sick, she said she took medicine and it knocked it right out of her. The effort to strive for perfect attendance all began back in elementary school when Knapp learned that her mother had tried to go through her school career without missing a day. Knapp said it worked for her mother until her high school years, when she finally missed a day. Knapp decided she wanted to give it a shot and worked to beat her mothers record. Knapps mom, Jennifer Moser, had gone five years without missing a day. It started as a competition, she was going to do better than me, her mom said. I dont see the point in missing school youre just going to sit at home and do nothing, Samantha said. She said she would wait until she was off school or until the end of the day, after school, to schedule things like doctors appointments and other outside needs. The senior has a GPA of 3.95 and plans to become a veterinarian. Ever since I was little Ive had the love for them and caring for them, she said of animals. She cant stand to see them abandoned or hurt or staved, she said, adding that its been something to her, Since I was three. She plans to spend the summer with her family, before I have to move away. She will attend Santa Fe Community College, then transfer to the University of Florida in Gainesville and figures shell be gone about eight years. Then Im coming back to Sumter County and opening an emergency clinic. Knapp has two dogs at home where she lives with her mom, her sister, Danielle and stepdad, Richard. She has another dog and a cat at her dad, Douglas Knapps home. While she doesnt have any large animals, she loves horses and plans to treat both large and small animals at the clinic. Noting that animals can smell fear, she said she really isnt afraid of them, except for snakes, she said with a laugh, adding that she figures shes going to have to get over that fear if she opens the clinic. When I was little I used to want a tiger. Knapp said shes very strong minded. Ive gotten sick, broken bones, dislocated my shoulder. BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff WriterSee SENIOR, Page 7Samantha Knapp

John Cosmo Panzetta, of Bushnell, was presented with an honorary Doctor of Divinity (D.D.) degree from Trinity College of New Port Richey on May 12. Rev. Panzetta received the honor in recognition for his outstanding achievements in ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ. Rev. Panzetta has been Chaplain at Sumter Correctional Institute for 32 years. Dr. Mark T. OFarrell, president of Trinity College, awarded Rev. Panzetta the doctorate hood during annual commencement exercises. Dr. Panzetta was born in Italy. His family had been secret Jews (Marranos, or Conversos) in Italy, and a part of the Catholic Church. In 1961, he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior in an Italian Assembly of God church, and soon after God called him into the ministry. Dr. Panzetta pastored five Assembly of God churches in Italy and attended Bible School in Rome. Coming to the United States to study, he met and married his future wife, Joanne Re in 1970, a thirdgeneration Italian Pentecostal. Dr. Panzetta earned a B.A. degree from Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, in 1972, a Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies from the Jesuit School of Fairfield University in Connecticut in 1977, and a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School in 1979. Two months after graduation from Yale, Dr. Panzetta joined the staff at Sumter Correctional Institute as Chaplain. Dr. Panzetta credits God for enabling him to minister to inmates from all walks of life and all faiths. Dr. Panzetta received a mandate from God to simply let God shine through him, and God would bring the ones to him who wanted to receive Jesus. Dr. Panzetta has not only helped guide the lives of countless inmates, but has also counseled the families of prisoners, touching lives throughout Florida. Rev. Panzetta and Joanne have two grown children, John Cosmo Jr. and Maria Grace, and eight grandchildren, all of whom love and serve the Lord. The mission of Trinity College of Florida is to equip men and women for Christian service to the church and all humanity through effective Biblical, professional and general education leading to associate and baccalaureate degrees.

Shes had a broken toe and dislocated knee. She didnt really want to use the crutches, but her friends convinced her to do that by Duct taping everything in camouflage and orange just so I would walk around on them. Knapp said there are other benefits to being in school when class is scheduled. Because you dont have to make up your work you can stay on top of it. Its easier, you can get more help from teachers while youre in school, she said, explaining that teachers can always stop to give undivided time after the fact. Education is very important. It gets you further in life, she said, adding that a lot of jobs require a college degree and Youve got to graduate high school. And that graduation is a big accomplishment. I do love it here everybody knows everybody, she said, adding that shes been in Sumter County since she was in the eighth grade. Along with her strong will and efforts to take care of her health, Knapp is a very social person who gets along with others well. If I have my mind to do something, Im going to do it. Thats why on the days she didnt feel like getting up and getting ready for school, she did it anyway. She would tell herself, Get up, you know youre going to sit at home, lay in bed and do nothing, so get up! Her education and her perfect attendance are important to her and they are important to her mother who, Knapp said, has been the big motivation to me. Shes my best friend I can talk to her about anything. Shes been through just about everything Ive been through. An honor student, Knapp is all about hard work, said her mom. Knapp is slated to join her senior class on Friday night, as they accept their diplomas on the stage in the South Sumter High School gym. SENIOR continued from Page 5 Thousands raised from Son run With more than 350 people attending the annual motorcycle Run for the Son it was a success in number, dollars and fun, according to coordinator Sissy Young. The Sumter County event started in Oxford at Lucky U Cycles, where bikers from eight state chapters and riders with no affiliation gathered for breakfast. The run is part of the Christian Motorcycle Associations annual fundraising efforts to spread the Gospel of Christ. After paying the $10 per person entry fee, the group took a scenic ride through Sumter and Citrus counties, before meeting up at the Youngs Bushnell ranch for lunch on Saturday, April 28. Hundreds of bikes were parked in the empty pasture in front of the home, as the crowd gathered for music, hot dogs, hamburgers and biker games near the house. The Christian rock band Sould Out, with members James Whitehead, Matt Lovely and Binks Skiva, played for the crowd as lunch was served and games kicked in. The local group, the Shekina Riders, raised $10,631 for the year, with money still coming in and this year. The Shekina group is headed up by Wayne Young (Sissys husband). Adding to their efforts was a combined effort by eight Central Florida groups. They raised more than $44,000 $11,000 above last years total. Statewide, the organization raised more than $136,000. We wouldnt be able to do this without the local community, she said. Not only their services, but monetary donations as well. She listed several of the contributors, including Lucky U Cycles, who donated the starting location, a tent and breakfast, to Howies Restaurant, who provided food at cost and allowed the use of coolers for storage. She said T&D Concrete donated port-alets and Sould Out donated their time and musical talent entertaining the crowd. Theyre fantastic such a blessing to us. I cant say enough about it, Young said. The day itself was a success and carried into the following morning the Youngs left their pasture open for those who wanted to campout and stay overnight. We had 26 people for breakfast the next morning. We had a church service and finished cleaning up, she said. The group began planning last year, with their first formal meeting in February. Theyve already begun planning for next year. From the feedback, weve heard, the best thing was there was no time frame on it people could stay as long as they like. They really loved the bike games and they loved the music. The games included a slowest bike race and jousting. In the race, riders had to work to keep their bikes upright, their feet off the ground and cross the finish line last. In jousting, one person drives the bike, while their passenger uses a lance to capture rings along the way the rings get smaller as the bike journeys further. To anyone whos never attended the event, Mrs. Young said its there are several reasons to come out next year whether you ride a motorcycle or not. First and foremost, to get out and have a good time to enjoy good food and great fellowship and meet a lot of folks. Then of course, theres the cost, Its a day out at a minimal donation, she said. This year, the cost was only $10 per person and the money paid for breakfast and lunch and all the fun. Then theres the main reason for the event. -percent of the proceeds go toward spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thats our mission, she said. To bike to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to bikers in this country and outside of this country. Young said that according to their Arkansas headquarters, that for every $3.50 raised, someone will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior. Figuring the $44,000 plus raised on the day of the run, Thats 12,616 souls, she said. The motorcycle run and afternoon picnic drew a crowd of between 300 and 400 people. The money raised will be used to purchase transportation and other needs for missionaries. BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Blindman (far left) and C.K. Benson get lunch served up from volunteers at the Run for the Son. The event cost $10 per person and funds will be used to provide needs for missionaries.

Paula Gray, Faith Mayville, Veronica Febre worked the entry table, greeting riders as they arrived and collecting money for the event. Photos by BRENDA LOCKLEARHundreds of bikes were lined along the Youngs pasture as the event opened up.

Jones finished the two-day national tournament with a total score of +18 (160) (83 + 77). Competing in the girls 15to 18-year-old division, took the ranking in a challenge over more than a dozen competitors at the Crescent Pointe Golf Club in Bluffton, S.C. The Carolinas were well represented, but players came from all over the Southeastern part of the United States, including Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey. The challenge even included international competition with players from Brazil, Canada, Japan, Mexico and Nigeria. Jones also earned the EFX Birdie Challenge win.

South Sumter gains 344 yards, takes Citrus 48-7 A smile from South Sumter High football head coach Inman Sherman practically told the story. His Raiders chewed up the football offensively and defensively Friday night as they beat Citrus High 48-7 in a spring football contest at Raiders Field. The Raiders did just what was expected, gaining 344 yards rushing. The defense was superb as expected holding Citrus to 115 yards rushing. The Canes had their one highlight early. Citrus scored first when running back Tyric Washington ran 10 yards for a touchdown with 3:01 left in the first quarter. A South Sumter facemask penalty helped the drive. Austin Killeen then booted in the extra point. The rest of the game was all South Sumter. I think the truth is defensively, we controlled the game, said Sherman. The thing is tonight, we didnt have to play against our own defense. They are seniors. They have played together. They are strong. They are fast. They are being recruited. Its just a neat bunch of kids. They set the precedent. Offensively, we are trying to keep up with them. My hat is off to Citrus. Their kids are better. I can see progress. I think their coach is doing a great job. They are better than they were last year. You cant go by the score because we have such a great defense. South Sumter senior quarterback Clay Simmons took off on a bootleg and ran 84 yards for a score with 7:30 left in the second period. Wes Moir booted the extra point.

But not everyone knows much about the process. The most recent Consumer Trust Research by the Center for Food Integrity found that:American consumers rank safe, affordable and nutritious food as their top priorities.Only 23 percent of Americans strongly agree that they have access to all of the infor mation they want about where food comes from, how it is produced and its safety. Farmers like Shana Beattie and Marie Bolt want to change that by volunteering to partic ipate in the CommonGround program. Theyve joined with other women farmers who want to share their knowledge with the people who buy their farm-raised food. The Beattie family raises soybeans, corn, alfalfa, beef and pork in Nebraska. In fact, they raise roughly 8 million pounds of pork annually. Thats enough to feed at least 40,000 Americans for a year. The Bolt family raises cattle and sheep in South Carolina, and Marie says its an honor to share her knowledge and experiences raising food. There are so many misconceptions about farming today. Many people seem to think that food is grown by huge corporations. The truth is, most food is grown and raised on family farms like mine. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that families such as the Beatties and Bolts operate up to 98 percent of the 2.2 million farms in America. You can learn more about these family farms and food facts, as well as join in the conversation yourself, at www.FindOurCommonGround.com, and www.Facebook.com/CommonGroundNow. Here, Shana and Marie share some of the recipes they make for their families.Food FactsAccording to the Food and Drug Administration, the agency does not allow meat to be sold with traces of antibiotics above strict safety limits.On average, Americans spend roughly 10 percent of their income on food, versus other countries around the world that spend roughly 18 to 25 percent, according to the educational resource The Hand That Feeds U.S.While organic food often is more expensive than conventional food, there is no difference in nutritional value, according to a review of 400 scientific papers on the health impacts of organic foods, published in the journal Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition.Find more food facts at www.FindOurCommonGround.com.

Boy did we see a change in fishing this week. Last week was all about shellcrackers, bluegill, and pan fish. Well, with the new moon on May 20, it was a whole other ball game. With the new moon rising, so did the bass as Jamie Edison and Jeff Ruttedge can attest to. They told me even with the water low, bass fishing is great. Speaking of the lakes being low, just know our beautiful lake is one of the few that still has open boat ramps. We all know that mother nature will take care of her own. Just some food for thought: there is this ritual from the Native American Indians that the rain turtle is a ceremony typically performed in times of drought in the belief that performing the ritual is a direct method of appealing to God to send forth rain. Just thought it was enlightening. Check it out on the web. Katelynn Durfee and her friend Charlie, had no trouble catching a few bluegill with worms. Miss Katelynn is an awesome fishing young lady, she also has a great love of nature. Wish we had more young people like her that tries to help nature stay preserved. Katelynn you are a blessing to us here at Tracys Point. Thanks for all you do. In closing we here at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge wish yall great fishing, and enjoy what we have while we have it. God Bless You and Yours. Sincerely, Donna Lind, president and owner Katelynn Durfee and her friend Charlie, had no trouble catching a few bluegill with worms. Jeff Ruttedge from Lakeland, landed these beauties on a 10 inch Berkey worm on the south end of the lake. There is this ritual from the Native American Indians that the rain turtle is a ceremony typically performed in times of drought in the belief that performing the ritual is a direct method of appealing to God to send forth rain.

The Florida Highway Patrol will join local and national law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates across the country for the national Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement campaign that kicks off May 21 and ends June 3. During the mobilization, officers will help save lives by cracking down on those who do not buckle up. While Florida reached a record high last year for safety belt use, we still see many drivers and passengers who fail to buckle up. All too often it ends in tragedy, said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton. One of our goals is to save lives through education and enforcement campaigns such as Click it or Ticket. Safety belt use saves thousands of lives across America each year and FHP is helping to spread the word in Florida. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show that in 2010 alone, safety belts saved an estimated 12,546 lives nationwide. For more on Click It or Ticket, please visit NHTSAs website at www.nhtsa.gov/PEAK. For additional details and statistics on the Sunshine States 2011 safety belt usage, to include county statistics, visit the Florida Department of Transportations website at www.dot.state.fl.us/safety/. Florida law requires all drivers and occupants in the front seat of a vehicle to fasten their safety belts. Occupants under the age of 18, regardless of where they sit in a vehicle, also must buckle up. Motorist cited for failure to buckle up face a nonmoving violation. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Memorial Memorial Memorial Day Day Day Savings! Savings! Savings! Sumter County Schools are proud to announce the 2012 FCAT Writing test scores. Sumter is ranked in the top third of the state for the mean prompt score in all tested grades. Eighth grade students are ranked in the top two with a mean prompt score of 3.6, fourth grade students are ranked in the top three with a mean prompt score of 3.4 and tenth grade students were ranked 20th with a 3.4 mean prompt score. The district was at or above the state average for the mean prompt score in all tested grades. Since 2006 Sumter schools have implemented an intensive district-wide writing program with strategic professional development. Despite the changes in FCAT Writes scoring requirements, that have impacted the entire state, Sumter has managed to be ranked in the top third of all districts. The success of student writing scores is directly related to the strategic strategies teachers use in the classroom to guide instruction and provide timely feedback to students. The district was above the state average for percent of students scoring level 4.0 or higher at all tested grades. School Superintendent Rick Shirley said, We are all proud of the efforts of our students and staff they make the difference. Sumter will continue to be strategic in the instructional strategies used to prepare students for the increasingly more difficult writing requirements. Plans are already underway to provide teachers with additional professional development to assist students with meeting the increasing demands of the changing writing assessments. We appreciate the efforts of our students, staff and community to prepare our students for success, said the Superintendent.

PAGE16 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY24, 2012 000BDXB Critter chatter Do your homework before adopting Tegan Henick volunteered at the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter Countys recent 30 year celebration. The 13 year old took a liking to the Lionhead rabbit in the Humane Society/SPCAs care, and spent time giving little Hoppy lots of attention. Lionhead rabbits originated in Belgium, and are a new domestic breed in the United States. Their distinct feature is long furry hair surrounding the face, which brings to mind a lions mane. The breed is small, usually weighing 2 to 3 lbs., and has slightly shorter ears than other breeds of rabbits. This adorable breed of rabbit is friendly and enjoys human contact. They make a great house pet, but grooming is essential with this breed. Before adopting a rabbit, do your homework. After all, the bunnys health and well-being is your responsibility. There is an incredible amount of information on the internet and in books that will help you to understand their housing requirements, health issues, nutritional needs, supplies you will need, and how to house train. There are so many interesting breeds and facts to learn about that will help you to decide which bunny suits you best. If you decide to adopt a rabbit, check out local humane societies or www.petfinder.com. Many reputable rabbit rescue groups have teamed up with Petfinder to help find homes for many displaced rabbits. These rescue groups specialize in rabbit rescue and have a wide variety of bunnies that need homes. They are very knowledgeable, and will be very happy to help in transitioning your new bunny into your household. Adorable adoptable bunnies are looking for forever homes. Reputable rescue groups will spay and neuter the rabbits before adopting to help control the overpopulation problem of homeless bunnies. Please support adoption efforts when adding a new pet into your family. Hoppy the Lionhead rabbit enjoys the attention he is getting from volunteer Tegan Henick.

Gas stealing device 45 drug charges filed after crash A Tampa man ended up with 45 drug charges filed against him last week after he fled from a crash on the turnpike outside the Okahumpka Service Plaza near Wildwood. Zachary Robert Dunn, 23, was charged with 25 counts of transferring harmful chemicals, four counts of possession of drug equipment, seven counts of possession of marijuana, four counts of possession of drugs, four counts of possession of cocaine and one count of possession of marijuana, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Dunn was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $157,045. The incident happened on the evening of Monday, May 14, when a trooper was dispatched to a traffic crash in the southbound lane of the turnpike outside the plaza, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Details about the crash were not available. Troopers reported that Dunn, the driver in the accident, was walking away from the crash site and seen dumping some items near bushes. The investigating trooper reported that he made contact with Dunn and saw money and bags containing a white substance which was later field tested and identified as cocaine, and another yellow substance. Dunn appeared to be impaired either by alcohol or drugs, the reports states, because of his constant rambling and inability to stand without assistance or leaning on one of the patrol cars. A rolled up $20 bill was found directly next to the white substance, according to the report. Dunn was also wearing a black jacket that contained the same white and yellow substance. While checking Dunns vehicle, troopers found multiple CO2 (carbon dioxide) cartridges used for huffing, the inhalation of volatile substances for their intoxicating effect. The troopers also found scales, multiple small and large bags used to distribute drugs, a large cooler and book bag containing seven large bags containing marijuana and a small glass jar containing marijuana. Troopers also found two bags containing mushrooms and four prescription pills without a legal prescription.

This tractor-trailer truck was consfiscated by the Sumter County Sheriffs Office after law enforcement investigators say they determined that gasoline was being illegally pumped by truckers who were using an electronic device to interfere with the gasoline pump readings calculating the actual gallons being pumped. As the price of fuel increases, criminals seem to be getting savvy about ways of stealing it. Thats what sheriffs office officials say they are now dealing with regarding a device they havent seen before used to illegally steal gasoline. The electronic device was attached from a Miami-based tractor-trailer truck carrying pineapples to a fuel pump at the Wilco Travel Center, 744 E. State Road 44, in Wildwood last week. The two truckers filling their tanks were arrested. The device was detected by store employees who became suspicious and called law enforcement officers. Investigators arrived and determined that the device is similar to the gas stations fuel pump gallon counter, according to a sheriffs office report. The device alters the amount of gasoline that is shown as being pumped on the store register. It would show that the fuel was being pumped at a much slower rate than it was being dispensed, according to the report. The incident happened about 9:40 p.m. on May 14, according to the report. Store employees noticed how long the two men were at the pump while the store register only showed they had pumped 29 gallons of diesel fuel. In actuality, it was determined that the men had stolen 280 gallons of fuel valued at $1,108, the report states. Arrested were Ivan Rogel, 45, and Carlos Prieto, 34, both of Miami, were each arrested on one count of theft and criminal mischief. Both men were placed in the Sumter county Sheriffs Office Detention Center. Bond was set at $5,000 each. But Sumter County is not alone in dealing with the device. A week before the Wildwood arrest, a Texas police department sent out a law enforcement notification that they had arrested a suspect in April for doing the exact same Young writers meet author B OB R EICHMAN Editor Inside Memorial Day event planned The Florida National Cemetery Joint Veterans Committee (JVC) will sponsor the annual Memorial Day Ceremony at Florida National Cemetery on Monday, May 28, at 11 a.m. Major General Jeffrey E.

In that case, Sinton Police Department officials say a suspect had repeatedly stolen gasoline from the local truck stop using the devise on numerous occasions. Police say more than $500,000 worth of fuel had been stolen by means of the device since December 2011. According to the Texas police department, these are the commonalities they have seen in the cases: The suspect has Florida ties, uses a metal device for the theft, uses radio controlled devices, has modified or multiple diesel fuel tanks, travels with others and may have keys to pumps. Based on the theft device, the Sumter County Sheriffs Office is recommending that fuel businesses adopt prepay policies, said sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. This is an unusual device and its something that we havent seen before, he said. Its best if businesses take precautions. Caruthers also said the department has been experiencing a larger increase in fuel thefts. Five cases were reported in March, he said and so far for May there have been three, he said. Any time gas prices start getting up toward the amount they are now, we do see an increase in gas thefts, he said. Good folks try and find ways to save on consumption but it also brings out unscrupulous people who will steal fuel and some are even profiting by reselling it. GAS continued from Page 1 ceremony. Seating is limited; those attending are encouraged to arrive early, wear comfortable clothing and bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit upon. The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. rain or shine. The Joint Veterans Committee and the Florida National Cemetery extend an invitation to all veterans organizations and the general public to take this opportunity to remember and honor the men and women who served and gave so much to protect our great nation. Organizations with colors are invited to participate in the massing of colors at the beginning of the program. Veterans organizations should plan to arrive by 9:30 a.m. The Avenue of Flags consisting of approximately 400 flags will be on display along the roadways of the cemetery. These flags were donated to the cemetery by the next of kin of deceased veterans and were once draped over the caskets or cremation urns of veterans.

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 24, 2012 SCARC takes high marks in rating by state agency SCARC Inc. has made the list for providing top standard group homes for persons with developmental disabilities. The Sumter County agency was ranked high in a report by the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). The agency recently published its website updated scorecards on several Medicaid waiver providers who serve Floridians with developmental disabilities. The agency also ranked three types of group homes: Intensive Behavior, Behavior Focused, and Standard. SCARC was rated high in the standard group homes category. SCARC and other providers contract with the state of Florida under the Home and Community-Based Services waivers. APD Director Michael Hansen said, I think the public wants to know how well service providers are meeting the needs of Floridians with developmental disabilities. We have improved this process of scoring providers by including them in focus groups, and we will continue to refine the scoring process as we move forward. All state agencies are working to develop scorecards to increase transparency and accountability to the public. The APD provider scorecards are intended to measure, evaluate, and improve performance on key measures that are important to Floridians with developmental disabilities. The long-term goal is to improve the quality of statefunded services. Customers, families, and waiver providers are asked to submit suggestions to their local area office on ways to improve the ranking process. The scorecards are posted on the agencys website APDcares.org. APD annually serves more than 50,000 Floridians with the developmental disabilities of autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, spina bifida, and PraderWilli syndrome. For more information on the agency, visit APDcares.org or call toll-free 1-866-APD-CARES (1-866-2732273). They get away with it The members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been working in Washington on 41 of the first 127 days of this year. They are planning to be in session half of the remaining weeks. How long would you keep your job if you worked like that? Even when they show up they fail to address the biggest problems facing the country. It would take a 50 percent tax increase in order to balance the so called budget yet they are avoiding the problem while the debt grows by $1,200 billion per year. The real problem is you and I let them get away with it. They work for us and we pay them $174,000 per year to do it. Make a commitment to write or call your representative once a week and express your views. See how they respond and let that be your guide to voting this November.Irving B. Welchons III Charlotte, N.C. Gay/lesbian marriage Last week I listened to the leader of the free world state that he believes in marriage for gays and lesbians. How can this be when marriage is a sacrament between a man and a woman that unites them to procreate? Marriage is a holy thing not to be taken lightly. After listening to all the news anchors and guest speakers on television I began to understand that what Mr. Obama meant was that gays and lesbians should be allowed to marry in order to get marriage tax credits, child tax credits, and other monetary awards. How sad, that our president would lower the sacrament of marriage to the level of a dollar. The United States of America is founded on Christian/Judaea values. How dare he attempt to rend the very fabric of our moral values. Obama has gone too far.

Jessie Hill Event coordinator Libraries investments in Americas future.We, chair and co-chairs of Coleman City Council, would like to ask the community of Coleman and anyone for help in reopening our library. The Coleman Public Library has been silent for months now. This library was one of the investments in our children and the communitys future. The Coleman City Council has asked that we, the chair and co-chair of this department come up with a budget and ways for the library to pay for its own operation. We are asking anyone in our community for ideas, resources for funding, volunteers and any suggestions that can help us reinvest in the children of our community. Our children and seniors cannot walk or drive approximately four or twelve miles to the nearest library. Please call or send any responses to Coleman City Hall, P .O. Box 456, Coleman, or call 748-1017. Cynthia D. Martin, Coleman vice president Coleman Library Chair Christine R. Hardin and Irma Lou Mae Fruci, co-charsFlorida Independent Voting Whatever happened to truth and honesty, integrity, responsibility, and humility as attributes we demand of our elected officials, not to mention their pledge to defend and uphold the Constitution of this Nation? Most consider it naive to expect politicians to behave by these ideals. Perhaps it is even impossible to do considering human nature. But shouldnt we hold those we elect to represent us to such ideals instead of more readily allowing for the excuse that its against human nature? Our indifference is what has created the self-serving free reign most politicians have adopted over these past decades. Most politicians are addicted to power and money as well. They get so focused into these temptations little else is important. This translates into how they cater so diligently to the special interests with a never ending supply of that money, and sense of power. They rationalize that they are doing their jobs; they are legislating for the benefit of their supporters, so the cycle reinforces their addiction to it. How then do we expect these same elected officials to all of a sudden start doing the right thing by representing the will of the majority, the will of the very people who put them in the positions they have? It will not and cannot happen. The temptations are established and too great to resist, and the addiction to them too deep in the psych of those gratifying themselves with it. Both parties cater to the above addictions, and both, while each actually a minority in terms of total registered voters, control their respective primaries to the exclusion of the real majority; the independent voters who comprise 40 percent of total registered voters! Even worse, all elections and all primaries are funded by taxpayer dollars. Independents therefore are taxed, but without representation at the primary election level. This level however is as important, if not more so then the General Elections, because it is where those nominees come from who go to the General Election and who are almost exclusively the party members who will be groomed and prepared to become the new generation of addicted elected officials. Ending this vicious circle is the only way we will ever get out of the mess we are in. Only when the majority is empowered can we purge government of self-serving interests and replace it with the will of the people. No Republican or Democrat majority can do this. They owe to many favors and too many votes to the legislation that benefits their masters; the special interests that spend billions of dollars to guarantee themselves laws that exclude them from social, moral, financial, and ethical responsibility. We can take back our government, but first we must reclaim our Democracy. Thats when the majority decides the laws, not the minority as exists now.

I s it just me or are most guys having this problem? During the past several decades more and more businesses are providing creditcard-like shopping cards to use either for purchasing their items or for getting special discounts. Im getting to the point where Im starting to cringe when a business employee hands me yet another application for one of their cards. These cards didnt exist several decades ago, and you could get discounts without them. Yes, they were simpler times. Now these cards are everywhere and they are used for more and more things. If you go to the drug store, you have a special card to use that gives you special discounts. The same is true for the grocery store. Use their card, get a special discount. Granted, the discounts are nice, but the cards, well, theyre not so nice. I now have a card for the dentist. A card that keeps track of what paint Im buying. I have a card for drug prescriptions. And I have a card for my health insurance. I even have a card to get me inside one of our newspaper offices. It comes with a photo though. But, what I dont have is any place to conveniently keep all these cards. Right now, they are all in my wallet, which I can no longer even close let alone get into my back pocket. Trying to sit down with that thing in my pocket wouldnt even work. Id probably just tumble out of the chair and onto the floor. What I dont know, is what other guys are doing with all these cards. Where are you keeping them? Ive noticed that a few of my actual credit cards are cracking because of the pressure created by me trying to cram all these other cards into my wallet. Not to mention, it takes me a heck of a long time to go through them all just to find the one I need that is, if they dont all fall on the floor when I try and remove them from one of the wallet compartments. Is it just me or this whole card thing becoming a crisis? Do you just finally give up the discounts to save your own sanity? Any solutions out there? And please, dont suggest using the key ring size cards, thats just too ridiculous.

Gay marriage President Obama has come out in support of gay marriage. In 2008 he said in an interview with Rick Warren that he believed that marriage was between one man and one woman. Now he supports something God calls an abomination. The five major world religions, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism recognize and uphold the natural, heterosexual understanding of marriage. By contrast, these religions teach that homosexual behavior is sinful or wrong. The Bible teaches God created Adam, then Eve (not Ed) to be a suitable helper. God delivered a female to Adam. He created them male and female, blessed them and directed them to be fruitful and multiply. Two women or two men can not multiply by natural means. The Bible, Gods inspired Word, clearly teaches that any form of homosexual behavior is sinful. Jesus underscored the fact that God made them male and female. For this reason man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife. The Bible says in Romans 1:18-28 what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them so that men are without excuse for although they knew God they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened. These scriptures point out that because man has suppressed the truth about God, refused to glorify or worship God as God, and declined to be thankful. He has abandoned men and women to their perversions. God gave them up to dishonorable passions, their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another. God called this type of behavior a perversion. Sex is a wonderful gift God has given us for our enjoyment, but it is to be enjoyed within the bonds of marriage as God established, one man and one woman. Thirty states have voted on constitutional amendments to opt for the exclusivity of traditional marriages. Forty one states have statues that define marriage as one man and one woman. Without a doubt exclusivity in marriage is what the majority of American people want. In America we elevate marriage in our laws over other relationships because marriage has proven over millennia to be an obvious societal good. Marriage law does not discriminate. Marriage is open to any two individuals provided they meet certain criteria regarding age and blood relationship, and provided the individuals are of the opposite sex. Homosexuals seek to completely redefine and thus undermine the foundational institution of marriage. They seek not to be left alone, not to be simply tolerated or respected, but to force their views on the rest of society. They are asking each of us to radically change our understanding of marriage and family. And this new definition of marriage and family will be force-fed to our children at every age level. Groups like ACLU would try to force churches to perform weddings in order to maintain their taxexempt status. Marriage is a sacred, legal, and social union ordained by God to be a life-long, sexually exclusive relationship between one man and one woman. Let us as voters stand united in this.

The collision happened at 7:45 p.m. on May 21 at the 310 mile marker on the interstate, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Truck driver James Edward Jent, 40, Alabama, was traveling northbound in the outside lane of the interstate, the report states. Trucker driver Eddie B. PPool, 44, Kentucky, was also traveling northbound, in the inside lane. Jent was starting to change lanes when the left side of the trailer being towed by his truck struck the right side of PPools truck, the report states. It forced the truck onto the shoulder of the roadway where it collided with the guardrail and jackknifed. Jents vehicle also traveled onto the shoulder and collided with the guardrail, the report states. The impact caused the truck to overturn facing north in the center median. Both of the drivers received minor injuries and were treated at local hospitals. A passenger in PPools truck, Heather Louise Holland, 28, Hernando, also received minor injuries, the report states. All three persons were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. Jent was charged with improper change of lane, according to the report. An investigation continues. Two tractor-trailer trucks collide on interstate B OB R EICHMAN Editor A motorcyclist died Sunday morning when he crashed into another vehicle on Interstate 75 near Wildwood. The accident happened at 10:20 a.m. when motorcyclist Kirk A. Toune, 47, Lakeland, driving a 2011 Kawasaki, crashed into the back of a 2008 Cadillac when the car slowed to travel by a pre-existing traffic crash scene with emergency workers actively working it, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The accident happened at the 325 milepost. The driver of the Cadillac, Sally T. Lusby, 79, Lakeland, was not injured in the collision. Toune failed to slow down while he was traveling northbound in the inside lane behind the Cadillac, the report states. His motorcycle struck the rear of the car and overturned and threw Toune off the vehicle. He was flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center and shortly died from injuries sustained during the crash, according to the report. The incident remains under investigation. The collision happened at 7:45 p.m. on May 21 at the 310 mile marker on the interstate. Crash kills motorcyclist B OB R EICHMAN Editor Sumter senior graduates with perfect attendanceI got 12 hours sleep a night, I was in bed at 8 p.m., said Samantha Knapp of her school years. She ate well, took care of herself and Friday night shes set to graduate South Sumter with perfect attendance not just as a high school student, but throughout her school years, dating all the way back to elementary school. Set your mind on your goal and you will succeed. When you say you cant do it, youre basically setting yourself up, she encourages and warns at the same time. While she had an occasional headache, I never really got sick until I got a job, she said. When she did get sick, she said she took medicine and it knocked it right out of her. The effort to strive for perfect attendance all began back in elementary school when Knapp learned that her mother had tried to go through her school career without missing a day. Knapp said it worked for her mother until her high school years, when she finally missed a day. Knapp decided she wanted to give it a shot and worked to beat her mothers record. Knapps mom, Jennifer Moser, had gone five years without missing a day. It started as a competition, she was going to do better than me, her mom said. I dont see the point in missing school youre just going to sit at home and do nothing, Samantha said. She said she would wait until she was off school or until the end of the day, after school, to schedule things like doctors appointments and other outside needs. The senior has a GPA of 3.95 and plans to become a veterinarian. Ever since I was little Ive had the love for them and caring for them, she said of animals. She cant stand to see them abandoned or hurt or staved, she said, adding that its been something to her, Since I was three. She plans to spend the summer with her family, before I have to move away. She will attend Santa Fe Community College, then transfer to the University of Florida in Gainesville and figures shell be gone about eight years. Then Im coming back to Sumter County and opening an emergency clinic. Knapp has two dogs at home where she lives with her mom, her sister, Danielle and stepdad, Richard. She has another dog and a cat at her dad, Douglas Knapps home. While she doesnt have any large animals, she loves horses and plans to treat both large and small animals at the clinic. Noting that animals can smell fear, she said she really isnt afraid of them, except for snakes, she said with a laugh, adding that she figures shes going to have to get over that fear if she opens the clinic. When I was little I used to want a tiger. Knapp said shes very strong minded. Ive gotten sick, broken bones, dislocated my shoulder. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff WriterSee SENIOR Page 7 Samantha Knapp

John Cosmo Panzetta, of Bushnell, was presented with an honorary Doctor of Divinity (D.D.) degree from Trinity College of New Port Richey on May 12. Rev. Panzetta received the honor in recognition for his outstanding achievements in ministry for the Lord Jesus Christ. Rev. Panzetta has been Chaplain at Sumter Correctional Institute for 32 years. Dr. Mark T. OFarrell, president of Trinity College, awarded Rev. Panzetta the doctorate hood during annual commencement exercises. Dr. Panzetta was born in Italy. His family had been secret Jews (Marranos, or Conversos) in Italy, and a part of the Catholic Church. In 1961, he came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior in an Italian Assembly of God church, and soon after God called him into the ministry. Dr. Panzetta pastored five Assembly of God churches in Italy and attended Bible School in Rome. Coming to the United States to study, he met and married his future wife, Joanne Re in 1970, a thirdgeneration Italian Pentecostal. Dr. Panzetta earned a B.A. degree from Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, in 1972, a Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies from the Jesuit School of Fairfield University in Connecticut in 1977, and a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School in 1979. Two months after graduation from Yale, Dr. Panzetta joined the staff at Sumter Correctional Institute as Chaplain. Dr. Panzetta credits God for enabling him to minister to inmates from all walks of life and all faiths. Dr. Panzetta received a mandate from God to simply let God shine through him, and God would bring the ones to him who wanted to receive Jesus. Dr. Panzetta has not only helped guide the lives of countless inmates, but has also counseled the families of prisoners, touching lives throughout Florida. Rev. Panzetta and Joanne have two grown children, John Cosmo Jr. and Maria Grace, and eight grandchildren, all of whom love and serve the Lord. The mission of Trinity College of Florida is to equip men and women for Christian service to the church and all humanity through effective Biblical, professional and general education leading to associate and baccalaureate degrees.

Shes had a broken toe and dislocated knee. She didnt really want to use the crutches, but her friends convinced her to do that by Duct taping everything in camouflage and orange just so I would walk around on them. Knapp said there are other benefits to being in school when class is scheduled. Because you dont have to make up your work you can stay on top of it. Its easier, you can get more help from teachers while youre in school, she said, explaining that teachers can always stop to give undivided time after the fact. Education is very important. It gets you further in life, she said, adding that a lot of jobs require a college degree and Youve got to graduate high school. And that graduation is a big accomplishment. I do love it here everybody knows everybody, she said, adding that shes been in Sumter County since she was in the eighth grade. Along with her strong will and efforts to take care of her health, Knapp is a very social person who gets along with others well. If I have my mind to do something, Im going to do it. Thats why on the days she didnt feel like getting up and getting ready for school, she did it anyway. She would tell herself, Get up, you know youre going to sit at home, lay in bed and do nothing, so get up! Her education and her perfect attendance are important to her and they are important to her mother who, Knapp said, has been the big motivation to me. Shes my best friend I can talk to her about anything. Shes been through just about everything Ive been through. An honor student, Knapp is all about hard work, said her mom. Knapp is slated to join her senior class on Friday night, as they accept their diplomas on the stage in the South Sumter High School gym. SENIOR continued from Page 5 Thousands raised from Son run With more than 350 people attending the annual motorcycle Run for the Son it was a success in number, dollars and fun, according to coordinator Sissy Young. The Sumter County event started in Oxford at Lucky U Cycles, where bikers from eight state chapters and riders with no affiliation gathered for breakfast. The run is part of the Christian Motorcycle Associations annual fundraising efforts to spread the Gospel of Christ. After paying the $10 per person entry fee, the group took a scenic ride through Sumter and Citrus counties, before meeting up at the Youngs Bushnell ranch for lunch on Saturday, April 28. Hundreds of bikes were parked in the empty pasture in front of the home, as the crowd gathered for music, hot dogs, hamburgers and biker games near the house. The Christian rock band Sould Out, with members James Whitehead, Matt Lovely and Binks Skiva, played for the crowd as lunch was served and games kicked in. The local group, the Shekina Riders, raised $10,631 for the year, with money still coming in and this year. The Shekina group is headed up by Wayne Young (Sissys husband). Adding to their efforts was a combined effort by eight Central Florida groups. They raised more than $44,000 $11,000 above last years total. Statewide, the organization raised more than $136,000. We wouldnt be able to do this without the local community, she said. Not only their services, but monetary donations as well. She listed several of the contributors, including Lucky U Cycles, who donated the starting location, a tent and breakfast, to Howies Restaurant, who provided food at cost and allowed the use of coolers for storage. She said T&D Concrete donated port-alets and Sould Out donated their time and musical talent entertaining the crowd. Theyre fantastic such a blessing to us. I cant say enough about it, Young said. The day itself was a success and carried into the following morning the Youngs left their pasture open for those who wanted to campout and stay overnight. We had 26 people for breakfast the next morning. We had a church service and finished cleaning up, she said. The group began planning last year, with their first formal meeting in February. Theyve already begun planning for next year. From the feedback, weve heard, the best thing was there was no time frame on it people could stay as long as they like. They really loved the bike games and they loved the music. The games included a slowest bike race and jousting. In the race, riders had to work to keep their bikes upright, their feet off the ground and cross the finish line last. In jousting, one person drives the bike, while their passenger uses a lance to capture rings along the way the rings get smaller as the bike journeys further. To anyone whos never attended the event, Mrs. Young said its there are several reasons to come out next year whether you ride a motorcycle or not. First and foremost, to get out and have a good time to enjoy good food and great fellowship and meet a lot of folks. Then of course, theres the cost, Its a day out at a minimal donation, she said. This year, the cost was only $10 per person and the money paid for breakfast and lunch and all the fun. Then theres the main reason for the event. -percent of the proceeds go toward spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thats our mission, she said. To bike to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to bikers in this country and outside of this country. Young said that according to their Arkansas headquarters, that for every $3.50 raised, someone will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior. Figuring the $44,000 plus raised on the day of the run, Thats 12,616 souls, she said. The motorcycle run and afternoon picnic drew a crowd of between 300 and 400 people. The money raised will be used to purchase transportation and other needs for missionaries. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Blindman (far left) and C.K. Benson get lunch served up from volunteers at the Run for the Son. The event cost $10 per person and funds will be used to provide needs for missionaries. The event included the actual motorcycle run, lunch, music by two bands, motorcycle games, overnight camping and more. Paula Gray, Faith Mayville, Veronica Febre worked the entry table, greeting riders as they arrived and collecting money for the event. Photos by BRENDA LOCKLEARHundreds of bikes were lined along the Youngs pasture as the event opened up. Sould Out band members Matt Lovely, James Whitehead and Binks Skiva performed for the crowd during the lunch and early afternoon.

Sumter sports Local teen takes third in competition Sumterville teen Kaeli Jones took third place in a Hurricane Junior Golf Open last weekend. Jones finished the two-day national tournament with a total score of +18 (160) (83 + 77). Competing in the girls 15to 18-year-old division, took the ranking in a challenge over more than a dozen competitors at the Crescent Pointe Golf Club in Bluffton, S.C. The Carolinas were well represented, but players came from all over the Southeastern part of the United States, including Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Jersey. The challenge even included international competition with players from Brazil, Canada, Japan, Mexico and Nigeria. Jones also earned the EFX Birdie Challenge win.

South Sumter gains 344 yards, takes Citrus 48-7 A smile from South Sumter High football head coach Inman Sherman practically told the story. His Raiders chewed up the football offensively and defensively Friday night as they beat Citrus High 48-7 in a spring football contest at Raiders Field. The Raiders did just what was expected, gaining 344 yards rushing. The defense was superb as expected holding Citrus to 115 yards rushing. The Canes had their one highlight early. Citrus scored first when running back Tyric Washington ran 10 yards for a touchdown with 3:01 left in the first quarter. A South Sumter facemask penalty helped the drive. Austin Killeen then booted in the extra point. The rest of the game was all South Sumter. I think the truth is defensively, we controlled the game, said Sherman. The thing is tonight, we didnt have to play against our own defense. They are seniors. They have played together. They are strong. They are fast. They are being recruited. Its just a neat bunch of kids. They set the precedent. Offensively, we are trying to keep up with them. My hat is off to Citrus. Their kids are better. I can see progress. I think their coach is doing a great job. They are better than they were last year. You cant go by the score because we have such a great defense. South Sumter senior quarterback Clay Simmons took off on a bootleg and ran 84 yards for a score with 7:30 left in the second period. Wes Moir booted the extra point. Simmons hit Ladovic Gibson for a 43-yard touchdown pass with 4:27 left in the half. Max McClain set up the pass with a 27-yard run. The Raiders struck quickly in the third quarter. Running back Garrett McMullen started up the middle and cut to the left on a 55-yard touchdown run with 11:05 left in the third quarter. Simmons raced 35 yards on a quarterback keeper to score with 7:24 left in the third quarter. McMullen scored on a four-yard run with 2:26 left in the third period.

FAMILY FEATURES O ver the last few years, theres been a growing awareness that it really matters how food gets from the farm to the table. But not everyone knows much about the process. The most recent Consumer Trust Research by the Center for Food Integrity found that: American consumers rank safe, affordable and nutritious food as their top priorities. Only 23 percent of Americans strongly agree that they have access to all of the infor mation they want about where food comes from, how it is produced and its safety. Farmers like Shana Beattie and Marie Bolt want to change that by volunteering to partic ipate in the CommonGround program. Theyve joined with other women farmers who want to share their knowledge with the people who buy their farm-raised food. The Beattie family raises soybeans, corn, alfalfa, beef and pork in Nebraska. In fact, they raise roughly 8 million pounds of pork annually. Thats enough to feed at least 40,000 Americans for a year. The Bolt family raises cattle and sheep in South Carolina, and Marie says its an honor to share her knowledge and experiences raising food. There are so many misconceptions about farming today. Many people seem to think that food is grown by huge corporations. The truth is, most food is grown and raised on family farms like mine. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that families such as the Beatties and Bolts operate up to 98 percent of the 2.2 million farms in America. You can learn more about these family farms and food facts, as well as join in the conversation yourself, at www.FindOurCommonGround.com, and www.Facebook.com/CommonGroundNow. Here, Shana and Marie share some of the recipes they make for their families.Food Facts According to the Food and Drug Administration, the agency does not allow meat to be sold with traces of antibiotics above strict safety limits. On average, Americans spend roughly 10 percent of their income on food, versus other countries around the world that spend roughly 18 to 25 percent, according to the educational resource The Hand That Feeds U.S. While organic food often is more expensive than conventional food, there is no difference in nutritional value, according to a review of 400 scientific papers on the health impacts of organic foods, published in the journal Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition.Find more food facts at www.FindOurCommonGround.com.

Boy did we see a change in fishing this week. Last week was all about shellcrackers, bluegill, and pan fish. Well, with the new moon on May 20, it was a whole other ball game. With the new moon rising, so did the bass as Jamie Edison and Jeff Ruttedge can attest to. They told me even with the water low, bass fishing is great. Speaking of the lakes being low, just know our beautiful lake is one of the few that still has open boat ramps. We all know that mother nature will take care of her own. Just some food for thought: there is this ritual from the Native American Indians that the rain turtle is a ceremony typically performed in times of drought in the belief that performing the ritual is a direct method of appealing to God to send forth rain. Just thought it was enlightening. Check it out on the web. Katelynn Durfee and her friend Charlie, had no trouble catching a few bluegill with worms. Miss Katelynn is an awesome fishing young lady, she also has a great love of nature. Wish we had more young people like her that tries to help nature stay preserved. Katelynn you are a blessing to us here at Tracys Point. Thanks for all you do. In closing we here at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge wish yall great fishing, and enjoy what we have while we have it. God Bless You and Yours. Sincerely, Donna Lind, president and owner Katelynn Durfee and her friend Charlie, had no trouble catching a few bluegill with worms. Jeff Ruttedge from Lakeland, landed these beauties on a 10 inch Berkey worm on the south end of the lake. There is this ritual from the Native American Indians that the rain turtle is a ceremony typically performed in times of drought in the belief that performing the ritual is a direct method of appealing to God to send forth rain. Jamie Edison of St. Pete., caught this on a red spinner bait tipped with a June bug trailer. Above, ladies enjoyed a selection of ham, chicken and chef salad at the luncheon. The entire event was free and open to the public. Along with their meal, the ladies had a keepsake photograph taken with their BFF (the person or persons they attended the lunch with). Author and columnist Nancy Kennedy (right), spent time chatting with ladies who attended the Bushnell Assembly of God BFF picnic at Dade Park, including Cora Hunt (at left). The ladies luncheon included ham, chicken and chef salads, fruits and drinks. Kennedys topic was How to Perfect.

The Florida Highway Patrol will join local and national law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates across the country for the national Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement campaign that kicks off May 21 and ends June 3. During the mobilization, officers will help save lives by cracking down on those who do not buckle up. While Florida reached a record high last year for safety belt use, we still see many drivers and passengers who fail to buckle up. All too often it ends in tragedy, said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton. One of our goals is to save lives through education and enforcement campaigns such as Click it or Ticket. Safety belt use saves thousands of lives across America each year and FHP is helping to spread the word in Florida. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show that in 2010 alone, safety belts saved an estimated 12,546 lives nationwide. For more on Click It or Ticket, please visit NHTSAs website at www.nhtsa.gov/PEAK. For additional details and statistics on the Sunshine States 2011 safety belt usage, to include county statistics, visit the Florida Department of Transportations website at www.dot.state.fl.us/safety/. Florida law requires all drivers and occupants in the front seat of a vehicle to fasten their safety belts. Occupants under the age of 18, regardless of where they sit in a vehicle, also must buckle up. Motorist cited for failure to buckle up face a nonmoving violation. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

The 13 year old took a liking to the Lionhead rabbit in the Humane Society/SPCAs care, and spent time giving little Hoppy lots of attention. Lionhead rabbits originated in Belgium, and are a new domestic breed in the United States. Their distinct feature is long furry hair surrounding the face, which brings to mind a lions mane. The breed is small, usually weighing 2 to 3 lbs., and has slightly shorter ears than other breeds of rabbits. This adorable breed of rabbit is friendly and enjoys human contact. They make a great house pet, but grooming is essential with this breed. Before adopting a rabbit, do your homework. After all, the bunnys health and well-being is your responsibility. There is an incredible amount of information on the internet and in books that will help you to understand their housing requirements, health issues, nutritional needs, supplies you will need, and how to house train. There are so many interesting breeds and facts to learn about that will help you to decide which bunny suits you best. If you decide to adopt a rabbit, check out local humane societies or www.petfinder.com. Many reputable rabbit rescue groups have teamed up with Petfinder to help find homes for many displaced rabbits. These rescue groups specialize in rabbit rescue and have a wide variety of bunnies that need homes. They are very knowledgeable, and will be very happy to help in transitioning your new bunny into your household. Adorable adoptable bunnies are looking for forever homes. Reputable rescue groups will spay and neuter the rabbits before adopting to help control the overpopulation problem of homeless bunnies. Please support adoption efforts when adding a new pet into your family. Hoppy the Lionhead rabbit enjoys the attention he is getting from volunteer Tegan Henick.
