Organizers launched a two-day Armed Forces Day event that had re-enactors from as far back as the Second Seminole War in the 1830s to representatives from modern day military branches. Students got a taste of Hayleigh Richardson, Cameron Youngblood and Ben Richardson splashing around in the swimming pool.At Florida National Cemetery Making a splash B OB R EICHMAN Editor Inside Not even the rain could deter the hundreds of guests who attended the Memorial Day ceremony at the Florida National Cemetery on Monday. The event was sponsored by the Joint Veterans Committee. As participants drove into the cemetery and through the Avenue of Flags, it would be difficult to mistake the reverence that encompassed the grounds on Memorial Day, May 28. Many stopped by gravesites on the way to and from the ceremony, while others prayed that their loved ones that they came to honor would make it home safely. With umbrellas, blankets and lawn chairs, guests withstood the heat and the rain to honor the men and women who have served so bravely. Before the ceremony began, Florida Gov. Rick Scott was greeted by individuals and with every handshake listened intently to the stories that each See EVENT Page 2 B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer See WET Page 5 K ATHYL INDNER Special to the Times Florida Gov.

During the ceremony the crowd fell silent for the Posting of the Colors, stood to their feet for the Pledge of Allegiance, and bowed their heads for a moment of silence. Awe and applause was given when planes flew overhead and gave an aerial salute. A bugler and the bagpipes infused the ceremony with familiar sounds. The crowd quietly sang along with the songs God Bless the USA and God Bless America. However, there was a humble appreciation as the Florida National Guard presented a rifle salute and then the Riderless horse entered through the crowd as a reminder that the warrior will never ride again. Special guest speakers included Major General Jeffrey Phillips, Scott, and Steve Jerve of WFLA TV News Channel 8 who served as the master of ceremonies. Director Kurt Rotar in his welcoming address stated, Us and the Cemetarians before us are keepers of a sacred trust, implying that he understood the significance of what it meant to bury those, who have given so much for America, with dignity and respect. Keynote speaker Major General Jeffrey Phillips asked everyone, during his speech, that this Memorial Day they celebrate with a purpose. The Hernando High School band also performed a melody of patriotic songs before, during and after the ceremony.

On May 18, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and numerous organizations honored Endangered Species Day, and the nationwide conservation efforts underway protecting Americas threatened and endangered species. The Endangered Species Act has prevented hundreds of listed species from going extinct. Co-administered by the Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the purpose of the Endangered Species Act is to conserve endangered and threatened species and the ecosystems upon which they depend. Endangered Species Day provides an opportunity to celebrate our successes and strengthen our partnership with the American public to conserve our shared natural resources, said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe. By taking action to help our threatened and endangered plants and animals, we can ensure a healthy future for our country and protect treasured landscapes for future generations. The Service and the Endangered Species Coalition are cosponsoring events around the country to focus public support on rare species, including at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, DC. Many of the Services field and regional offices will be hosting events in their communities and providing unique programs to visitors on endangered species conservation. For more information on how you can find an event near you, please visit http://www.fws.gov/endangered/ESDay/2012.html. In the Southeast Region, in particular, the Service and its partners will be holding events across this region before, on, and after May 18, in locations like the Audubon Zoo in Louisiana, Jacksonville Zoo in Florida, Nashville Zoo in Tennessee, and the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science. Exhibits also will be displayed for example the beautiful one constructed in Indian River Mall, in South Florida to educate visitors about endangered species. The Services Southeast Region hosts its own art and photography competitions. For example, the third annual statewide art contest was held in Arkansas, and the winners will be selected soon. In Panama City, Florida, and Mobile, Alabama, the Service is starting the first photography contest to celebrate endangered species. Entries are due May 18. In Atlanta, the Service held an event on May 12, with the National Park Service at its Johnson Ferry North Unit celebrating migratory birds and endangered species. On Sunday May 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Service joined the Georgia Aquarium to celebrate their first annual Endangered Species Day Celebration. Endangered Species Day celebrates Americas natural heritage and our countrys successful efforts to protect imperiled species, said Leda Huta, Executive Director of the Endangered Species Coalition. As Americans, we can be proud that we have one of the strongest endangered species programs in the world. Americans have established a legacy of protecting endangered species for our children and grandchildren. The Service works with other federal agencies, state, local and tribal governments, environmental organizations, industry groups, academia, the scientific community and members of the public to help conserve our nations threatened and endangered fish, wildlife and plants. Endangered Species Day honors this national commitment to recovering endangered species and their habitats and provides an opportunity to learn about what efforts are being made to conserve them. It also provides an opportunity to meet and talk to the dedicated people working on endangered species. The bald eagle, brown pelican, American alligator, Tennessee purple coneflower, and Maguire daisy are all species that were on the brink of extinction, but have successfully recovered. The wood stork, Kirtlands warbler, Lake Erie water snake, Okaloosa darter, black-footed ferret and Louisiana black bear also are listed species that are showing significant progress towards recovery. These species are just a few examples of those benefiting from the protections afforded by the Endangered Species Act and the dedicated people who work to ensure their continued existence. To learn more about the Services Endangered Species program, and explore what endangered species are near you, please visit www.fws.gov/endangered. The Sumter Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees today announced that due to the decrease in the cost of natural gas the cooperative is able to pass that savings on to SECO customers. Effective July 1, the PCA or power cost adjustment portion of each SECO members bill will be reduced. It will drop the total cost for the first 1,000 residential kilowatt hours of electricity from $126.95 down to $119.95 a decrease of $7. SECO CEO Jim Duncan said, Happily, the cost of natural gas has decreased. Consequently, the Board of Trustees has authorized a reduction in our customers electric bills. Times are tough and the Board and senior staff are keenly aware of that. We are always looking for ways to keep our members costs down. This significant reduction in the PCA will benefit everyone. According to SECO officials, 70 cents of every dollar the co-op receives goes to pay for the power the cooperative must buy for their customers and then distribute to them. The co-op does not keep any revenue from the PCA charge. It is used solely for the purchase of fuels, and the costs associated with that, which are the most volatile part of most electric utility bills across the country. These costs can fluctuate wildly at times and are reflected in the PCA charge on the bill. Duncan concluded, As long as the cost of natural gas remains low, and other fuels and fuel-related costs remain stable, well keep this reduction in place for as long as possible. As a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative our focus is on keeping power costs low to benefit the overall SECO membership. Sumter Electric Cooperative serves over 176,000 members and their families in Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus, Hernando, Pasco and Levy counties.

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 31, 2012 The Prince Obama and the Democrats would make Nicolo Machiavelli proud! It would appear they have used his book the Prince, as a hand book, a hand book that has been used by most tyrants through history. We certainly have had a plethora of unscrupulous politicians here in America, many that have obtained office by lies and deception to the gullible, impressionable and the suggestible among us, espousing one set of principles that are the exact opposite of those the candidate intends to pursue. Making Political Science more like the science of deception or maybe as an Italian cynic once said, the way men live is so far removed from the way they ought to live that anyone who abandons what is, for what should be, simply pursues his own destruction rather than his preservation. They say Obama is no FDR, well maybe not, or maybe so. FDR obtained office from the support of the most treasonous forces, international financers and European central banks. Roosevelts election in 1933 brought about a change in American monetary policy ala Woodrow Wilson! Bringing about Alexander Hamiltons worst fears whereby these policies have subjugated the American people to world-wide monetary forces. This was a change from well-established monetary policy for over 141 years that guaranteed the integrity of American transaction producing a prosperous reliable ever-expanding economic environment. In FDRs first campaign for the office of President, he promised to reduce taxes by 25 percent he then increased them by 3,000 percent. He made assurances to the American people that funds would be available as needed and then went about reducing the supply of funds from $64 billion dollars in 1928 to $30.8 billion dollars. The clearings at our banks were reduced from a high of $659 billion in 1929 to $262 billion in 1934! He raised the price of gold to $35 in order to create a stable dollar but created a total monetary instability! Since there was a ban on gold, he offered Americans only $20.67 to buy their gold but paid foreigners $35. Obama offered Hope and Change He promised transparency, we got stonewalled. He said he would bring us together and now we are further apart than ever! He promised reduced cost of health care and instead the cost of health care has escalated! He said borrowing to spend, was stimulus instead we have found it to be just debt! He now wants another four years to finish what he started. Fool the American people once shame on him, fool America twice shame on us! The FDR campaign sounds to me an awful lot like hope and change, saying one thing and doing another. Maybe Obama is like FDR? Phil Longo A special place La ne P u rce ll Hosp ice Hous e c a re s fo r s eri ouslyi ll Sumt er a re a pat ien ts S erving Sumter County and the surrounding areas, Lane Purcell Hospice House in Sumterville has been caring for seriously-ill patients since March 2009. As with all four of our hospice houses in Lake and Sumter, the Lane Purcell Hospice House has rooms with a flat screen TV and an enclosed lanai. The home-like environment provides an extremely comfortable yet professionally staffed home for patients requiring interim, specialized care until they can go home, explained Cornerstone Hospice CEO Mary Manrique. Named in memory of Lane Purcell, a prominent Sumter county businessman, philanthropist and community leader, this hospice house is now the fourth such facility built by Cornerstone Hospice. Lane Purcell was the owner of the Lane Purcell Funeral Home in Bushnell and died in a tragic vehicular accident in 2005. His wife Cheryl and their grown children cut the ceremonial ribbon when the Lane Purcell Hospice House was showcased to the general public at a grand opening in December 2008. The Lane Purcell Hospice House is located at 2452 C.R. 526 in East Sumterville. The facility is on the edge of Lake-Sumter Community College grounds. Georgia Klems RN, patient care supervisor at Lane Purcell Hospice House, prides herself in the quality of patient care provided by the medical and nursing staff. The passion with which the hospice house staff cares for their patients is oftentimes rewarded by unsolicited testimonials. Recently one was received from Ms. Christa Hoellering-Hawes, mother of Michele Hoellering, who said, How do you thank so many dedicated, thoughtful and incredibly hardworking human beings, who see so much suffering but try their very best to alleviate some of the pain? My husband, my family and I will forever be indebted to The Villages and Lane Purcell Hospice Houses for their incredible devotion and service at a time of great need and sorrow. The devotion, nursing care and compassion which all extended with such love and dignity to Michele during her suffering was a source of great comfort to Michele and to me. While all the nurses and staff took such great care of Michele, they also comforted me many times during a time when it broke my heart to be unable to halt the progression of her MS. At Lane Purcell Hospice House everybody tried to comfort me when the going got really rough and yes, all of us had a good laugh once in a while, because there were moments when my daughters great sense of humor cheered all of us up. When the end came on December 31, 2011, Michele was finally free, but as long as she was under the care of Cornerstone Hospice she was loved and cared for. Nick Buchholz, executive director of the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation, expresses how fortunate Cornerstone is to have had contributors such as the late Glenn Wade, a former Foundation board member. Mr. Wade, Dr. Lowell Clark and Jon Manning donated the land for the Lane Purcell Hospice House. Many community-conscious people and organizations contributed $2.8 million, ranging from twenty-five cents to $600,000, to build the house. We are forever grateful, said Buchholz. Sumterville hospice house design inspires other counties Cornerstone CEO Mary Manrique commented that the design features of both the Lane Purcell Hospice House and the Mike Conley Hospice House in Clermont have attracted the attention of foundation advisory board members from our other coverage areas who are exploring the possibilities of hospice houses in their regions. At Lane Purcell Hospice House the water fountain and gazebo in the courtyard, visible from the patients rooms, are especially comforting features, said Manrique.

OPINIONS INVITED Guest column Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor mentioned one recent family testimonial received just this week from Matthew Wheeler. It concerned his mother Agnes Wheeler who passed away in April at Lane Purcell Hospice House. Son Matthew wrote, My mother was very reluctant to leave her dog as well as her home of 38 years. In fact, while I know she was scared beyond words, in her heart she knew this was the right thing for her own sake in terms of having the right resources to care for her. From the first day, mom wanted the staff to know that she was still capable of making her own decisions and that she still desired to be in control of her life. However, the reality was that her health was failing quickly and she needed more resources than what I was capable of providing at home. Having said that, she began to bond with the staff and to ask questions about the disease process and how things would end. It was at that point where I believe mom really began to deal with many issues that she had been worried about. Simply put, I could not have asked for a better environment for my mom and I truly felt that the hospice house had hired earthly angels to care for her until God sent His angels to take her home. I am so grateful my family had a hospice house like Lane Purcell in Sumter County. Wheeler continues, Even though mom could not say much nor do much in her last week at the hospice house, she would have a warm smile for staff members which meant the world to me. To see how quickly she had formed a heartfelt bond with the staff was so comforting. Whatever she needed or wanted, they provided. No hesitation...no complaints...no worries. They not only availed themselves to mom, but to me as well. They kept me informed, provided emotional comfort and allowed me to talk through feelings that I had as well. At times, I felt like I was receiving more care than I could or should ever ask for as I was not the patient in the bed. The house was clean, beautiful, staffed with wonderful staff who truly understand their roles and the need of the patient and the patients family during such a difficult time Renewal of Wedding Vows at Lane Purcell Hospice House! Admitted to Lane Purcell Hospice House only last week, patient Lincoln Red O. Watson asked for Cornerstone Hospice chaplain and bereavement and spiritual care counselor Angelo Cruz Sein to reaffirm his wedding vows to his wife Ruby Watson. The Watsons, married on July 4, 2007, have five children from their prior marriages: Michael of Plant City; Anthony of Wildwood; Amy also of Wildwood; Joey of Enterprise, Alabama; and Dusty of Summerfield Lake near The Villages. Lincoln had been talking for several weeks about doing this but his illness always interfered with his plans. Having this ceremony here at the hospice house was to say the least, rather unexpected; I was caught totally by surprise, said Mrs. Watson. Within twenty-four hours chaplain Cruz Sein officiated a Renewal of Wedding Vows ceremony and indeed, Lincoln was able to reaffirm his wedding commitment to his wife on May 24. Mr. Watson asked specifically for chaplain Cruz Sein. He had originally married them. The chaplains wife, Bertha Cruz Sein, was Rubys maid of honor at their 2007 wedding. The couple was surrounded by well-wishers and the nursing staff at Lane Purcell Hospice House who provided a bouquet of Birds of Paradise. It was the most emotional Renewal of Vows I have ever seen in my life, said Kate Silvestro, Lane Purcell Hospice House licensed practicing nurse. Volunteer specialist Kim Carter assisted with the proceedings and team assistant Melissa Thomas helped with photos. The Lane Purcell Hospice House is part of the nonprofit Cornerstone Hospice community healthcare organization providing medical, emotional, spiritual, and personal care services for patients and families facing serious, complex illness. In April 2008 Hospice of Lake & Sumter name was changed to Cornerstone Hospice to be more reflective of the geography of the several counties served by the organization. Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has provided care and services to central Florida residents experiencing life-limiting illnesses and accept Medicare, Medicaid and most commercial insurances. To learn more, call (352)343-1341 or toll-free 888-728-6234 or visit www.cornerstonehospice.org as well as www.SeriousIllness.org/Cornerstone.

The park offers all types of camping slots, from tent to RV and even has several cabins for rent. Family Adventure Camp even offers passes for day camping or day splashing. Residents can bring the family for an afternoon, purchasing day passes. The cost is $10 per person, per day. Were a snowbird park in the winter time, but with all the northern residents gone home, Summer times just way to quiet here, said OConnor. He and the other owners decided to get innovative with the business and search out what families were looking for in the summer. Thanks to their research and input from a consulting company, the park is now all about Florida families and water. While the design was selected with kids ages five to 15 years in mind, its for all ages. OConnor said every adult working at the facility had already tried out the water slide. In their research efforts, he said they went to every festival they could find strawberries, kumquats, manatees, shrimp. If there was a festival, we were at it. From families, they learned people wanted a place close by and affordable. They learned that families are vacationing in a smaller circle, with the likelihood of their customers coming from Gainesville to Tampa, with Sumter in between. Last weekend, their grand opening weekend, they had families coming in from Inverness and Hernando. The park owners are also responsible for the annual Rutland Haunted Forest in October. They work with schools and organizations in Sumter and Citrus counties the groups send out members to actually work the forest and create the scare. They share the ticket proceeds, so that each group makes money off the event too. The haunted forest is one of our favorite things to do, he said. He said the school groups are extremely creative and at one point, they had 50 teens in the woods, scaring those who dared to take the stroll. So in the meantime, as the winter residents leave the state and the scares are put on hold, theyre going to take advantage of their park. OConnor said they have a beautiful spot along the Witlacoochee, a place where visitors can go rent horses right across the street and more, so theyre offering up summer fun. With the adventure camp open, Its all about getting wet in the summer time. The business is owned by Central Florida Family Resort Property Management and the park is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday through Sunday. For more information, call them at 352-748-2237.

Solution to puzzle on page 3 Last Thursday morning, when Montana Mendoza pulled her shopping list from her pocket in the Bushnell Walmart Supercenter, she had no idea that more than $170 in cash had dropped to the floor. I got to the service counter, reached in my pocket and the money wasnt there. I was distraught I started panicking, she said. She began to backtrack, looking for the money and asking two of the cashiers if anyone had turned it in. They told her no, but suggested she go to the service desk. She had just been there. She was certain the money was gone and about to give up and leave the store when she decided to go ahead and at least ask at customer service. When she got there, one of the floor staff had just turned money into the front office. He asked Mendoza to describe what denominations it was in and when she was able to tell him exactly what was there, he said, its been found. Mendoza figures the money was found and turned in less than seven minutes after she lost it. You dont see that not in this world, she said, impressed with the person who turned the money in and the employee who turned it into the office. People just dont do that. Since that day, shes pulled one of the single dollar bills from the pile and put it on her refrigerator, with the words, I was lost, but now Im found. A lot of money for Mendoza to lose, she said she wants the person who turned the money in to know how grateful she is and to say Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I just hope this person, whoever it is, reads it (the newspaper article). I would like to meet them. Every now and then, we need a reminder and here it is. There are good people. Ill think about this for the rest of my life. Customer turns over lost cash Lost, but now its found B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Montana Mendoza Micah Ann Adams was named South Sumter High Schools Salutatorian.

You get Providence Baptist Churchs recordbreaking banana split! On Sunday, May 20, the members of Providence set up and served a 140-foot banana split. Children, teenagers and adults were thrilled as they saw the 14 tables set up from the front doors of the church all the way to the back doors in the fellowship hall. This dessert stretched across three buildings! The split was set up in a trough structure made up of seven carpet center rolls provided by Carpet Depot in Bushnell. Each person stood at their designated spot, which were separated by walls of tin foil. After finding their spots everyone dug in and enjoyed! Providence would also like to express our thanks to Lickity Splits for providing the five pounds of sprinkles! We are excited about the many things happening in our church and we would like to invite you to come and see what we are all about! Banana Split Sunday at Providence Baptist Church

O ur armed forces use trained dogs in every branch of the service. Just ask any soldier who has worked along side these highly trained dogs, and they will attest to their bravery and dedication. Military working dogs perform a vital service by preventing multitudes of injuries and saving countless lives. Military working dogs are intelligent and loyal, and have served steadfast and faithful with our troops throughout many conflicts and wars. Historic war stories praise these dogs, and very recently, they have served our soldiers in Iraq and are now are serving in Afghanistan. Military working dogs put their lives on the line just as any other military personnel. Sadly, our U.S. Department of Defense has classified these heroic dogs as equipment. Not only does this classification dishonor the significance and importance of the job these dogs perform, but it hinders the transport of the military working dogs serving in foreign countries back to the U.S. for adoption. U.S. Senate Bill #2135 Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act will reclassify military working dogs from equipment to canine members of the armed forces. This will commit our government to the health and well being of the military working dogs during their service and after retirement. What you can do is urge your U.S. Senators to cosponsor and support the Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act. We cannot forget the service and courageous acts these devoted canines have performed to protect our troops. Our soldiers who work side by side and in combat with these incredible canines understand their worth and treasure their companionship. We cannot leave them behind.

Three children die everyday as a result of drowning. Most of these drowning deaths are attributed to the easier access to water, lack of supervision, inexpensive inflatable pools, and high cost of swimming classes. Sumter County Health Department in collaboration with Sumter County School Board and Rotary Club of Wildwood has initiated a drowning prevention program Swim Safe Sumter. This program is designed to teach children ages 3 to 13 basic swimming skills. Classes are set for 8 thirty minute sessions over a two week period. These classes will be instructed by American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors and Lifeguards. Classes are scheduled to begin June 4, and will continue until Sept. 10. Swim Safe Sumter has currently reached the maximum capacity of 160 students. For more information on this program please contact Cassie Lewis at 352-569-3106.

Seniors of Wildwood Middle High School and South Sumter High School gathered in their respective cafeterias last week, anticipating the next few hours and the transformation that would seemingly take place in the blink of eye they would enter their school gymnasium as seniors, they would leave as graduates. But there was no magic and the transition was at least a 12-year pursuit for these young adults, as they spent year after year learning and striving to climb the academic ladder. More than 300 seniors were set to graduate this year, as thousands of friends and family came out to attend the ceremonies in Wildwood in Bushnell. Wildwood began their ceremony at 5:30 p.m. and South Sumter at 8 p.m. Images on this page are from the graduation ceremonies at both schools.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 31, 2012, P AGE 11 Some things fishy Tracys Point Fishing Lodge for Week Ending May 20 Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 322 Anglers Bass Fishing 298 Bass Caught 346 Bass Released 328 Blue gills and Shellcrackers caught 347 In last weeks report I am afraid I perhaps embarrassed Russell Stephens amongst his fellow workers at the correctional institute by making reference to his natural ability to be a leader amongst men. My apologies to Russell; In any event, we all have them (deep down) Im talking about super hero legends the few people that forever remain in folks minds as legends larger than life. For me, it was (and still is) James Arness otherwise known as Matt Dillon on the television series Gunsmoke. Ever since Tom Davies took up swimming over fishing, Russell Stephens has become The Man of Lake Pan a/k/a Pan fish king. We are planning a photo shoot for kids who would like to have their picture taken with Mr. Stephens here at Tracys Point call Steve Lind at 352-793-8060 to have your photo taken. Hey ya'll, hope your Memorial Day was a great one. We celebrated our freedom down here at Tracy's Point by enjoying the outdoors; with a little horse shoes, dancing, swimming, air boating and of course fishing. In addition to Colemans Landing another good spot for catching shellcrackers and blue gill is at the mouth of Big Jones Creek, both places can be easily accessed via the Tracys Point boat launch. I mentioned air boating and I want to tell ya'll, I went up to Jones Creek on the air boat, and what a great time I had! Though the water level is a little low right now we are heading into the rainy season and we will soon be back where we should be. The good news is that you can still launch your boat from Tracys Point. I want to give a big "thank you" to our veterans. Because of you, I can fish, and enjoy my day knowing you are the reason. Thank you for the sacrifice you have given us to enjoy our freedom. Donna Lind, president and owner of Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Bill Commder from Bushnell didn't do badly either, with a mess of bluegill and shellcrackers as shown at the Tracys Point boat launch. Richard and Ciara Wimmington are seen inside Tracys Point Fishing Lodge holding a 7 lb bass caught at the mouth of Little Jones Creek on a watermelon seed plastic worm. Speaking of fishing, Darlene and Robbie Wills found their fishing hole on Lake Panasoffkee by way of Tracy's Point Fishing Lodge. They are at it again folks!! Russell Stephens (left) and Chris Jones seen at Tracys Point literally hammered the panfish last week. Bill Word from Oxford has been faithfully fishing, and what a great pay off! He is seen here at Tracys Point holding his amazing string of shellcrackers, awesome job Mr. Bill.

Organizers launched a two-day Armed Forces Day event that had re-enactors from as far back as the Second Seminole War in the 1830s to representatives from modern day military branches. Students got a taste of Hayleigh Richardson, Cameron Youngblood and Ben Richardson splashing around in the swimming pool.At Florida National Cemetery Making a splash BOBREICHMAN Editor Inside Not even the rain could deter the hundreds of guests who attended the Memorial Day ceremony at the Florida National Cemetery on Monday. The event was sponsored by the Joint Veterans Committee. As participants drove into the cemetery and through the Avenue of Flags, it would be difficult to mistake the reverence that encompassed the grounds on Memorial Day, May 28. Many stopped by gravesites on the way to and from the ceremony, while others prayed that their loved ones that they came to honor would make it home safely. With umbrellas, blankets and lawn chairs, guests withstood the heat and the rain to honor the men and women who have served so bravely. Before the ceremony began, Florida Gov.

During the ceremony the crowd fell silent for the Posting of the Colors, stood to their feet for the Pledge of Allegiance, and bowed their heads for a moment of silence. Awe and applause was given when planes flew overhead and gave an aerial salute. A bugler and the bagpipes infused the ceremony with familiar sounds. The crowd quietly sang along with the songs God Bless the USA and God Bless America. However, there was a humble appreciation as the Florida National Guard presented a rifle salute and then the Riderless horse entered through the crowd as a reminder that the warrior will never ride again. Special guest speakers included Major General Jeffrey Phillips, Scott, and Steve Jerve of WFLA TV News Channel 8 who served as the master of ceremonies. Director Kurt Rotar in his welcoming address stated, Us and the Cemetarians before us are keepers of a sacred trust, implying that he understood the significance of what it meant to bury those, who have given so much for America, with dignity and respect. Keynote speaker Major General Jeffrey Phillips asked everyone, during his speech, that this Memorial Day they celebrate with a purpose. The Hernando High School band also performed a melody of patriotic songs before, during and after the ceremony.

On May 18, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and numerous organizations honored Endangered Species Day, and the nationwide conservation efforts underway protecting Americas threatened and endangered species. The Endangered Species Act has prevented hundreds of listed species from going extinct. Co-administered by the Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the purpose of the Endangered Species Act is to conserve endangered and threatened species and the ecosystems upon which they depend. Endangered Species Day provides an opportunity to celebrate our successes and strengthen our partnership with the American public to conserve our shared natural resources, said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe. By taking action to help our threatened and endangered plants and animals, we can ensure a healthy future for our country and protect treasured landscapes for future generations. The Service and the Endangered Species Coalition are cosponsoring events around the country to focus public support on rare species, including at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, DC. Many of the Services field and regional offices will be hosting events in their communities and providing unique programs to visitors on endangered species conservation. For more information on how you can find an event near you, please visit http://www.fws.gov/endangered/ESDay/2012.html. In the Southeast Region, in particular, the Service and its partners will be holding events across this region before, on, and after May 18, in locations like the Audubon Zoo in Louisiana, Jacksonville Zoo in Florida, Nashville Zoo in Tennessee, and the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science. Exhibits also will be displayed for example the beautiful one constructed in Indian River Mall, in South Florida to educate visitors about endangered species. The Services Southeast Region hosts its own art and photography competitions. For example, the third annual statewide art contest was held in Arkansas, and the winners will be selected soon. In Panama City, Florida, and Mobile, Alabama, the Service is starting the first photography contest to celebrate endangered species. Entries are due May 18. In Atlanta, the Service held an event on May 12, with the National Park Service at its Johnson Ferry North Unit celebrating migratory birds and endangered species. On Sunday May 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Service joined the Georgia Aquarium to celebrate their first annual Endangered Species Day Celebration. Endangered Species Day celebrates Americas natural heritage and our countrys successful efforts to protect imperiled species, said Leda Huta, Executive Director of the Endangered Species Coalition. As Americans, we can be proud that we have one of the strongest endangered species programs in the world. Americans have established a legacy of protecting endangered species for our children and grandchildren. The Service works with other federal agencies, state, local and tribal governments, environmental organizations, industry groups, academia, the scientific community and members of the public to help conserve our nations threatened and endangered fish, wildlife and plants. Endangered Species Day honors this national commitment to recovering endangered species and their habitats and provides an opportunity to learn about what efforts are being made to conserve them. It also provides an opportunity to meet and talk to the dedicated people working on endangered species. The bald eagle, brown pelican, American alligator, Tennessee purple coneflower, and Maguire daisy are all species that were on the brink of extinction, but have successfully recovered. The wood stork, Kirtlands warbler, Lake Erie water snake, Okaloosa darter, black-footed ferret and Louisiana black bear also are listed species that are showing significant progress towards recovery. These species are just a few examples of those benefiting from the protections afforded by the Endangered Species Act and the dedicated people who work to ensure their continued existence. To learn more about the Services Endangered Species program, and explore what endangered species are near you, please visit www.fws.gov/endangered. The Sumter Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees today announced that due to the decrease in the cost of natural gas the cooperative is able to pass that savings on to SECO customers. Effective July 1, the PCA or power cost adjustment portion of each SECO members bill will be reduced. It will drop the total cost for the first 1,000 residential kilowatt hours of electricity from $126.95 down to $119.95 a decrease of $7. SECO CEO Jim Duncan said, Happily, the cost of natural gas has decreased. Consequently, the Board of Trustees has authorized a reduction in our customers electric bills. Times are tough and the Board and senior staff are keenly aware of that. We are always looking for ways to keep our members costs down. This significant reduction in the PCA will benefit everyone. According to SECO officials, 70 cents of every dollar the co-op receives goes to pay for the power the cooperative must buy for their customers and then distribute to them. The co-op does not keep any revenue from the PCA charge. It is used solely for the purchase of fuels, and the costs associated with that, which are the most volatile part of most electric utility bills across the country. These costs can fluctuate wildly at times and are reflected in the PCA charge on the bill. Duncan concluded, As long as the cost of natural gas remains low, and other fuels and fuel-related costs remain stable, well keep this reduction in place for as long as possible. As a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative our focus is on keeping power costs low to benefit the overall SECO membership. Sumter Electric Cooperative serves over 176,000 members and their families in Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus, Hernando, Pasco and Levy counties.SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY31, 2012, PAGE3 ESTABLISHED1881(USPS#535-880)GIVEUSACALL NewsDepartment..............352-793-2161 Circulation..................1-888852-2340 RetailAdvertising....... ....... 352-793-2161 ClassifiedAdvertising..TollFree1-877-676-1403 Fax.......................... 352-793-1486 TheSumterCountyTimesispublishedThursdays, 52timesayear,forasubscriptionpriceof $25.00peryearinSumterCountyby:SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES204E.McCollumAve. Bushnell,Florida33513 Deadlines:Displayadvertising Proof....................

PAGE4 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY31, 2012 The PrinceObama and the Democrats would make Nicolo Machiavelli proud! It would appear they have used his book the Prince, as a hand book, a hand book that has been used by most tyrants through history. We certainly have had a plethora of unscrupulous politicians here in America, many that have obtained office by lies and deception to the gullible, impressionable and the suggestible among us, espousing one set of principles that are the exact opposite of those the candidate intends to pursue. Making Political Science more like the science of deception or maybe as an Italian cynic once said, the way men live is so far removed from the way they ought to live that anyone who abandons what is, for what should be, simply pursues his own destruction rather than his preservation. They say Obama is no FDR, well maybe not, or maybe so. FDR obtained office from the support of the most treasonous forces, international financers and European central banks. Roosevelts election in 1933 brought about a change in American monetary policy ala Woodrow Wilson! Bringing about Alexander Hamiltons worst fears whereby these policies have subjugated the American people to world-wide monetary forces. This was a change from well-established monetary policy for over 141 years that guaranteed the integrity of American transaction producing a prosperous reliable ever-expanding economic environment. In FDRs first campaign for the office of President, he promised to reduce taxes by 25 percent he then increased them by 3,000 percent. He made assurances to the American people that funds would be available as needed and then went about reducing the supply of funds from $64 billion dollars in 1928 to $30.8 billion dollars. The clearings at our banks were reduced from a high of $659 billion in 1929 to $262 billion in 1934! He raised the price of gold to $35 in order to create a stable dollar but created a total monetary instability! Since there was a ban on gold, he offered Americans only $20.67 to buy their gold but paid foreigners $35. Obama offered Hope and Change He promised transparency, we got stonewalled. He said he would bring us together and now we are further apart than ever! He promised reduced cost of health care and instead the cost of health care has escalated! He said borrowing to spend, was stimulus instead we have found it to be just debt! He now wants another four years to finish what he started. Fool the American people once shame on him, fool America twice shame on us! The FDR campaign sounds to me an awful lot like hope and change, saying one thing and doing another. Maybe Obama is like FDR? Phil Longo A special place Lane Purce ll Hospice House care s for seriously-ill Sumter are a patientsServing Sumter County and the surrounding areas, Lane Purcell Hospice House in Sumterville has been caring for seriously-ill patients since March 2009. As with all four of our hospice houses in Lake and Sumter, the Lane Purcell Hospice House has rooms with a flat screen TV and an enclosed lanai. The home-like environment provides an extremely comfortable yet professionally staffed home for patients requiring interim, specialized care until they can go home, explained Cornerstone Hospice CEO Mary Manrique. Named in memory of Lane Purcell, a prominent Sumter county businessman, philanthropist and community leader, this hospice house is now the fourth such facility built by Cornerstone Hospice. Lane Purcell was the owner of the Lane Purcell Funeral Home in Bushnell and died in a tragic vehicular accident in 2005. His wife Cheryl and their grown children cut the ceremonial ribbon when the Lane Purcell Hospice House was showcased to the general public at a grand opening in December 2008. The Lane Purcell Hospice House is located at 2452 C.R. 526 in East Sumterville. The facility is on the edge of Lake-Sumter Community College grounds. Georgia Klems RN, patient care supervisor at Lane Purcell Hospice House, prides herself in the quality of patient care provided by the medical and nursing staff. The passion with which the hospice house staff cares for their patients is oftentimes rewarded by unsolicited testimonials. Recently one was received from Ms. Christa Hoellering-Hawes, mother of Michele Hoellering, who said, How do you thank so many dedicated, thoughtful and incredibly hardworking human beings, who see so much suffering but try their very best to alleviate some of the pain? My husband, my family and I will forever be indebted to The Villages and Lane Purcell Hospice Houses for their incredible devotion and service at a time of great need and sorrow. The devotion, nursing care and compassion which all extended with such love and dignity to Michele during her suffering was a source of great comfort to Michele and to me. While all the nurses and staff took such great care of Michele, they also comforted me many times during a time when it broke my heart to be unable to halt the progression of her MS. At Lane Purcell Hospice House everybody tried to comfort me when the going got really rough and yes, all of us had a good laugh once in a while, because there were moments when my daughters great sense of humor cheered all of us up. When the end came on December 31, 2011, Michele was finally free, but as long as she was under the care of Cornerstone Hospice she was loved and cared for. Nick Buchholz, executive director of the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation, expresses how fortunate Cornerstone is to have had contributors such as the late Glenn Wade, a former Foundation board member. Mr. Wade, Dr. Lowell Clark and Jon Manning donated the land for the Lane Purcell Hospice House. Many community-conscious people and organizations contributed $2.8 million, ranging from twenty-five cents to $600,000, to build the house. We are forever grateful, said Buchholz. Sumterville hospice house design inspires other counties Cornerstone CEO Mary Manrique commented that the design features of both the Lane Purcell Hospice House and the Mike Conley Hospice House in Clermont have attracted the attention of foundation advisory board members from our other coverage areas who are exploring the possibilities of hospice houses in their regions. At Lane Purcell Hospice House the water fountain and gazebo in the courtyard, visible from the patients rooms, are especially comforting features, said Manrique.

It concerned his mother Agnes Wheeler who passed away in April at Lane Purcell Hospice House. Son Matthew wrote, My mother was very reluctant to leave her dog as well as her home of 38 years. In fact, while I know she was scared beyond words, in her heart she knew this was the right thing for her own sake in terms of having the right resources to care for her. From the first day, mom wanted the staff to know that she was still capable of making her own decisions and that she still desired to be in control of her life. However, the reality was that her health was failing quickly and she needed more resources than what I was capable of providing at home. Having said that, she began to bond with the staff and to ask questions about the disease process and how things would end. It was at that point where I believe mom really began to deal with many issues that she had been worried about. Simply put, I could not have asked for a better environment for my mom and I truly felt that the hospice house had hired earthly angels to care for her until God sent His angels to take her home. I am so grateful my family had a hospice house like Lane Purcell in Sumter County. Wheeler continues, Even though mom could not say much nor do much in her last week at the hospice house, she would have a warm smile for staff members which meant the world to me. To see how quickly she had formed a heartfelt bond with the staff was so comforting. Whatever she needed or wanted, they provided. No hesitation...no complaints...no worries. They not only availed themselves to mom, but to me as well. They kept me informed, provided emotional comfort and allowed me to talk through feelings that I had as well. At times, I felt like I was receiving more care than I could or should ever ask for as I was not the patient in the bed. The house was clean, beautiful, staffed with wonderful staff who truly understand their roles and the need of the patient and the patients family during such a difficult time Renewal of Wedding Vows at Lane Purcell Hospice House! Admitted to Lane Purcell Hospice House only last week, patient Lincoln Red O. Watson asked for Cornerstone Hospice chaplain and bereavement and spiritual care counselor Angelo Cruz Sein to reaffirm his wedding vows to his wife Ruby Watson. The Watsons, married on July 4, 2007, have five children from their prior marriages: Michael of Plant City; Anthony of Wildwood; Amy also of Wildwood; Joey of Enterprise, Alabama; and Dusty of Summerfield Lake near The Villages. Lincoln had been talking for several weeks about doing this but his illness always interfered with his plans. Having this ceremony here at the hospice house was to say the least, rather unexpected; I was caught totally by surprise, said Mrs. Watson. Within twenty-four hours chaplain Cruz Sein officiated a Renewal of Wedding Vows ceremony and indeed, Lincoln was able to reaffirm his wedding commitment to his wife on May 24. Mr. Watson asked specifically for chaplain Cruz Sein. He had originally married them. The chaplains wife, Bertha Cruz Sein, was Rubys maid of honor at their 2007 wedding. The couple was surrounded by well-wishers and the nursing staff at Lane Purcell Hospice House who provided a bouquet of Birds of Paradise. It was the most emotional Renewal of Vows I have ever seen in my life, said Kate Silvestro, Lane Purcell Hospice House licensed practicing nurse. Volunteer specialist Kim Carter assisted with the proceedings and team assistant Melissa Thomas helped with photos. The Lane Purcell Hospice House is part of the nonprofit Cornerstone Hospice community healthcare organization providing medical, emotional, spiritual, and personal care services for patients and families facing serious, complex illness. In April 2008 Hospice of Lake & Sumter name was changed to Cornerstone Hospice to be more reflective of the geography of the several counties served by the organization. Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has provided care and services to central Florida residents experiencing life-limiting illnesses and accept Medicare, Medicaid and most commercial insurances. To learn more, call (352)343-1341 or toll-free 888-728-6234 or visit www.cornerstonehospice.org as well as www.SeriousIllness.org/Cornerstone. Retired U.S. Navy veteran Dan Boone will observe next week his third year as a Hospice volunteer, serving as a Lane Purcell Hospice House greeter and front desk receptionist Mondays and Tuesdays.

The park offers all types of camping slots, from tent to RV and even has several cabins for rent. Family Adventure Camp even offers passes for day camping or day splashing. Residents can bring the family for an afternoon, purchasing day passes. The cost is $10 per person, per day. Were a snowbird park in the winter time, but with all the northern residents gone home, Summer times just way to quiet here, said OConnor. He and the other owners decided to get innovative with the business and search out what families were looking for in the summer. Thanks to their research and input from a consulting company, the park is now all about Florida families and water. While the design was selected with kids ages five to 15 years in mind, its for all ages. OConnor said every adult working at the facility had already tried out the water slide. In their research efforts, he said they went to every festival they could find strawberries, kumquats, manatees, shrimp. If there was a festival, we were at it. From families, they learned people wanted a place close by and affordable. They learned that families are vacationing in a smaller circle, with the likelihood of their customers coming from Gainesville to Tampa, with Sumter in between. Last weekend, their grand opening weekend, they had families coming in from Inverness and Hernando. The park owners are also responsible for the annual Rutland Haunted Forest in October. They work with schools and organizations in Sumter and Citrus counties the groups send out members to actually work the forest and create the scare. They share the ticket proceeds, so that each group makes money off the event too. The haunted forest is one of our favorite things to do, he said. He said the school groups are extremely creative and at one point, they had 50 teens in the woods, scaring those who dared to take the stroll. So in the meantime, as the winter residents leave the state and the scares are put on hold, theyre going to take advantage of their park. OConnor said they have a beautiful spot along the Witlacoochee, a place where visitors can go rent horses right across the street and more, so theyre offering up summer fun. With the adventure camp open, Its all about getting wet in the summer time. The business is owned by Central Florida Family Resort Property Management and the park is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday through Sunday. For more information, call them at 352-748-2237.

Solution to puzzle on page 3 Last Thursday morning, when Montana Mendoza pulled her shopping list from her pocket in the Bushnell Walmart Supercenter, she had no idea that more than $170 in cash had dropped to the floor. I got to the service counter, reached in my pocket and the money wasnt there. I was distraught I started panicking, she said. She began to backtrack, looking for the money and asking two of the cashiers if anyone had turned it in. They told her no, but suggested she go to the service desk. She had just been there. She was certain the money was gone and about to give up and leave the store when she decided to go ahead and at least ask at customer service. When she got there, one of the floor staff had just turned money into the front office. He asked Mendoza to describe what denominations it was in and when she was able to tell him exactly what was there, he said, its been found. Mendoza figures the money was found and turned in less than seven minutes after she lost it. You dont see that not in this world, she said, impressed with the person who turned the money in and the employee who turned it into the office. People just dont do that. Since that day, shes pulled one of the single dollar bills from the pile and put it on her refrigerator, with the words, I was lost, but now Im found. A lot of money for Mendoza to lose, she said she wants the person who turned the money in to know how grateful she is and to say Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I just hope this person, whoever it is, reads it (the newspaper article). I would like to meet them. Every now and then, we need a reminder and here it is. There are good people. Ill think about this for the rest of my life.

You get Providence Baptist Churchs recordbreaking banana split! On Sunday, May 20, the members of Providence set up and served a 140-foot banana split. Children, teenagers and adults were thrilled as they saw the 14 tables set up from the front doors of the church all the way to the back doors in the fellowship hall. This dessert stretched across three buildings! The split was set up in a trough structure made up of seven carpet center rolls provided by Carpet Depot in Bushnell. Each person stood at their designated spot, which were separated by walls of tin foil. After finding their spots everyone dug in and enjoyed! Providence would also like to express our thanks to Lickity Splits for providing the five pounds of sprinkles! We are excited about the many things happening in our church and we would like to invite you to come and see what we are all about! Banana Split Sunday at Providence Baptist Church

Our armed forces use trained dogs in every branch of the service. Just ask any soldier who has worked along side these highly trained dogs, and they will attest to their bravery and dedication. Military working dogs perform a vital service by preventing multitudes of injuries and saving countless lives. Military working dogs are intelligent and loyal, and have served steadfast and faithful with our troops throughout many conflicts and wars. Historic war stories praise these dogs, and very recently, they have served our soldiers in Iraq and are now are serving in Afghanistan. Military working dogs put their lives on the line just as any other military personnel. Sadly, our U.S. Department of Defense has classified these heroic dogs as equipment. Not only does this classification dishonor the significance and importance of the job these dogs perform, but it hinders the transport of the military working dogs serving in foreign countries back to the U.S. for adoption. U.S. Senate Bill #2135 Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act will reclassify military working dogs from equipment to canine members of the armed forces. This will commit our government to the health and well being of the military working dogs during their service and after retirement. What you can do is urge your U.S. Senators to cosponsor and support the Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act. We cannot forget the service and courageous acts these devoted canines have performed to protect our troops. Our soldiers who work side by side and in combat with these incredible canines understand their worth and treasure their companionship. We cannot leave them behind.

Three children die everyday as a result of drowning. Most of these drowning deaths are attributed to the easier access to water, lack of supervision, inexpensive inflatable pools, and high cost of swimming classes. Sumter County Health Department in collaboration with Sumter County School Board and Rotary Club of Wildwood has initiated a drowning prevention program Swim Safe Sumter. This program is designed to teach children ages 3 to 13 basic swimming skills. Classes are set for 8 thirty minute sessions over a two week period. These classes will be instructed by American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors and Lifeguards. Classes are scheduled to begin June 4, and will continue until Sept. 10. Swim Safe Sumter has currently reached the maximum capacity of 160 students. For more information on this program please contact Cassie Lewis at 352-569-3106.

Seniors of Wildwood Middle High School and South Sumter High School gathered in their respective cafeterias last week, anticipating the next few hours and the transformation that would seemingly take place in the blink of eye they would enter their school gymnasium as seniors, they would leave as graduates. But there was no magic and the transition was at least a 12-year pursuit for these young adults, as they spent year after year learning and striving to climb the academic ladder. More than 300 seniors were set to graduate this year, as thousands of friends and family came out to attend the ceremonies in Wildwood in Bushnell. Wildwood began their ceremony at 5:30 p.m. and South Sumter at 8 p.m. Images on this page are from the graduation ceremonies at both schools.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY31, 2012, PAGE11 Some things fishy Tracys Point Fishing Lodge for Week Ending May 20Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 322 Anglers Bass Fishing 298 Bass Caught 346 Bass Released 328 Blue gills and Shellcrackers caught 347In last weeks report I am afraid I perhaps embarrassed Russell Stephens amongst his fellow workers at the correctional institute by making reference to his natural ability to be a leader amongst men. My apologies to Russell; In any event, we all have them (deep down) Im talking about super hero legends the few people that forever remain in folks minds as legends larger than life. For me, it was (and still is) James Arness otherwise known as Matt Dillon on the television series Gunsmoke. Ever since Tom Davies took up swimming over fishing, Russell Stephens has become The Man of Lake Pan a/k/a Pan fish king. We are planning a photo shoot for kids who would like to have their picture taken with Mr. Stephens here at Tracys Point call Steve Lind at 352-793-8060 to have your photo taken. Hey ya'll, hope your Memorial Day was a great one. We celebrated our freedom down here at Tracy's Point by enjoying the outdoors; with a little horse shoes, dancing, swimming, air boating and of course fishing. In addition to Colemans Landing another good spot for catching shellcrackers and blue gill is at the mouth of Big Jones Creek, both places can be easily accessed via the Tracys Point boat launch. I mentioned air boating and I want to tell ya'll, I went up to Jones Creek on the air boat, and what a great time I had! Though the water level is a little low right now we are heading into the rainy season and we will soon be back where we should be. The good news is that you can still launch your boat from Tracys Point. I want to give a big "thank you" to our veterans. Because of you, I can fish, and enjoy my day knowing you are the reason. Thank you for the sacrifice you have given us to enjoy our freedom. Donna Lind, president and owner of Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Bill Commder from Bushnell didn't do badly either, with a mess of bluegill and shellcrackers as shown at the Tracys Point boat launch. Richard and Ciara Wimmington are seen inside Tracys Point Fishing Lodge holding a 7 lb bass caught at the mouth of Little Jones Creek on a watermelon seed plastic worm. Speaking of fishing, Darlene and Robbie Wills found their fishing hole on Lake Panasoffkee by way of Tracy's Point Fishing Lodge. They are at it again folks!! Russell Stephens (left) and Chris Jones seen at Tracys Point literally hammered the panfish last week. Bill Word from Oxford has been faithfully fishing, and what a great pay off! He is seen here at Tracys Point holding his amazing string of shellcrackers, awesome job Mr. Bill.
