On Bushnell police speak now, or hold your peace If you want to have your say in the future of Bushnells law enforcement, the Monday, June 11, City Council meeting is the one to attend. City leaders will hold a workshop to determine if the Bushnell Police Department will continue to exist, or if the Sumter County Sheriffs Office will take over the job of policing the city. We are pursuing two avenues, said City Manager Vince Ruano either contracting with the sheriffs office or looking at the list of five candidates they have for the position of police chief. The idea of the meeting on the 11th is to solicit more citizens input and to disseminate more information on the sheriffs proposal what kind of services, what kind of staffing levels, what the costs are, or if there are savings, what that would be, Ruano said. They will also consider what other resources might be available to the city under the sheriffs contract. Those resources dont just include physical assets, but expertise as well, he said. For example, the sheriffs office has eight to 10 investigators that are experts in those areas, where city staff would have to be more like a jack-of-all trades, Ruano explained. There are many, many resources that the sheriff has that we will likely never have because we are a small city. If they choose to contract with the sheriff, there would not be a police department office and the public would access records, traffic reports and other information from the sheriffs office. However, all the demographic and statistical information would remain separate. That would mean one lieutenant ( working a 40hour week) who reports to Ruano and the City Council and oversees six deputies and an investigator. The supervisor will be responsible for serving as a liaison to the community, meeting with the public and if theres negative feedback, that person can also be replaced, Ruano said. As for the workshop, Ruano pointed out that the public will be noticed of the meeting in their utility bills and through other means. Once they choose a direction, he said its likely theyll take action at the Monday, July 9 meeting, either moving on a contract, or paring down the list of five candidates to a final two or three.

Lynn Tabb, 48, was arrested by agents of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). Alongside his attorney, Bill Grant, Tabb who most recently served as a deputy turned himself in to Sumter County authorities in Bushnell at the Sumter County Sheriffs Office. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office had terminated Tabbs employment last Thursday on agency policy violations of absence from duty without proper notification, officials with the agency said in a news release. Grant called the Chronicle (a sister newspaper of the Sumter County Times) last Friday afternoon to say his client is innocent. Grant accused the sheriffs office of retribution against his client for having material problems with some of the sex cases the agency was working. I think justice has been prejudiced, Grant said. But Citrus Sheriff Jeff Dawsy called Grants allegations absurd, and said his office and the prosecutors office sought to make sure not a hint of impropriety was present in pursuance of the case against Tabb. We got FDLE involved very quickly because we wanted an independent agency to examine the evidence and ensure the integrity of not only our agency to make sure the truth came out independent of us. We wanted to show no one is above the law and if wrongdoing is reported, it will be investigated thoroughly and arrests will be made if necessary, Dawsy said. He said the State Attorneys Office also transferred investigation of the matter to its Ocala office. According to the release from the sheriffs office, about a month and half Growing in Sumter Bushnell to decide fate of police dept A BDON S IDIBE Special to the Times Inside I f you take a drive along C.R. 470, between Lake Panasoffkee and Sumterville, chances are youll notice an increase in activity most notably on the north side of the road, where massive sprayers can be seen rolling along acres of land. Its the home of Bethel Farms newest sod farm. Touted as the nations leading grower/supplier of premium sod and grass plugs, the business has become one of Floridas leading agriculture companies. Based in Central Florida, the family-owned and operated business employs more than 100 people and utilizes more than 4,000 acres of land around the Southeastern United States. The Sumter County farm is approximately 300 acres and is managed by veteran grower Chuck Todd he has more than 30 years of experience in the turfgrass industry. Todd is a Webster resident and his family has farmed in Sumter County for decades. He is a member of the Florida Sod Growers Association and on the advisory board for the University of Florida Extension Service. He is a past director of the Farm Bureau. It will be Todds responsibility to develop and operate the Sumter County farm, adhering to the stringent requirements of the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), especially as they affect nearby Lake Panasoffkee and the Withlacoochee River.

Lynn Tabb Darrien Roshad Grady Man suspected of sexual battery was once sex crimes detective Armed home invader arrested Police say a gun-bearing suspect draped in black clothing entered a Wildwood home last week and confronted two people inside demanding money while he focused a gun on one of the victims, according to a Wildwood Police Department report. The suspect was later identified as Darrien Roshad Grady, 18, of Wildwood, according to an arrest report. Grady was arrested on Thursday, May 31, and charged with home invasion robbery with a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, larceny, burglary and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $75,000. Grady is accused of unlawfully entering the Wildwood home on Lawrence Street shortly after midnight on May 31, according to a police officers report. Grady, brandishing a Sunlight filters through the trees and reflects off water on the new sod farm. The filtration system will result in water that is cleaned twice.

P AGE 2S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J UNE 7, 2012 000BO9T 2267 W. CR 48 Bushnell, FL 33513 352-569-0303 MONDAY DOUBLE LOYALTY POINTS TUESDAY $2.00 OFF CARTON (LIMIT 2) WEDNESDAY DOUBLE LOYALTY POINTS Now Selling Beer and Soda THURSDAY 10% OFF CARTON FRIDAY 10% OFF ACCESSORIES SATURDAY FREE LIGHTER WITH CARTON PURCHASE (LIMIT 2) WEVE MOVED! ago, a call was received by the Florida abuse hotline in which a third-party complainant alleged Tabb had physically abused a 5year-old boy. The complainant also mentioned allegations that Tabb had sexually abused a young girl. The sheriffs offices child protective investigators looked into the alleged physical abuse, which turned out to be unfounded, according to officials. However, the matter involving alleged sexual abuse of a minor was turned over to the agencys Special Victims Unit, where Tabb previously worked, for followup. Dawsy said about four weeks ago FDLE was engaged to handle the case because of transparency and also because the case was multi-jurisdictional with witnesses and alleged sex acts occurring outside of Citrus County as well as within the county. The alleged female victim of the abuse currently is an adult in her early 20s who no longer resides in Citrus County, according to the sheriffs office. According to the arrest warrant, the sexual abuse occurred on multiple occasions at different locations between January 2003 and December 2008. Tabb was expected to be transported from Sumter County to the Citrus County Detention Facility to face the charges against him. Tabb was hired by the sheriffs office in October 2003. He ended his employment in September 2006 and temporarily relocated out West to be with an ailing family member, according to the agency. He eventually returned to Citrus County and was rehired in August 2007. The sheriffs office said Tabbs prior disciplinary action included one instance of conduct unbecoming an officer that resulted from an internal affairs investigation in August 2010, when he received a suspension without pay, plus reassignment to road patrol. A second discipline in September 2009 involved his repeated failure to properly follow up and document cases or respond to phone calls. He reportedly received a written reprimand and probation. While Im highly appreciative of FDLEs thorough efforts in conducting this investigation, Im both disappointed and disturbed that a deputy sheriff could even be responsible for such a heinous crime, Dawsy said in the release. ARREST continued from Page 1 chrome handgun, confronted the homeowner and a visitor in the living room, according to the report. He reportedly ordered the victims to get on the floor and then demanded money from the homeowner while pointing the firearm at the victim. Grady took an undisclosed amount of petty cash from a bank bag in the living room and also took a twenty dollar bill from the visiting guest, the report states. He then took the homeowners car keys and entered her 2009 Chevrolet Impala and removed her purse containing personal property, credit cards and about $850, the report states. He then fled on foot. During an interview later that same day, the homeowner told a sheriffs deputy that she recognized Gradys voice during the incident and called to him by name. When confronted by a deputy, Grady reportedly admitted to the offenses because he wanted the money, the report states. He refused to tell investigators the location of the stolen money or the firearm that was used. Grady reportedly has 14 prior felony convictions, all within Florida court systems, the report states. GUN continued from Page 1 Grady reportedly has 14 prior felony convictions, all within Florida court systems. But according to Todd, the requirements are minima1. Bethel Farms has not only met all of the requirements imposed on us by the regulatory agencies, but we have exceeded them and will continue to do so. We take stewardship of our natural resources very seriously and always go above and beyond the minimum, he said. The companys commitment to environmental integrity is reflected in several areas. While irrigating the farms fields with even less water than regulation allows, Todd is also managing the development of a landfill water filtration, conservation and retention system. The system will use refuse water from the City of Bushnell in a cooperative program funded in part by a SWFWMD grant with oversight provided by FDEP and Floridas USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. The filtration system will result in water that is cleaned twice. Once by the City of Bushnell and again by Bethel Farms, using a series of wetlands created by earth berms and ponds planted with native vegetation. Water will enter the 1.6 acre filtration area through a rock bed which will diffuse it into the first pond. Flow control structures will move the water through two more wetland areas before filtering it into a final pond from where it will be put to use irrigating the turfgrass. When completed, the water filtration system will be the Sumter County farms primary source of irrigation water. The turfgrass itself is another example of the companys innovation and commitment. Years ago we recognized that water use issues were growing. They directly affected our customers, explains Bethels Vice President of Turf Jonathan Brown. We sought out turfgrass varieties that demonstrated better drought tolerance and water efficiencies. Where varieties didnt exist to solve their customers needs, the company developed them. One such product is their Empire Zoysia (pronounced Zoi-zhuh) grass. Introduced in 2000, the Empire Zoysia grass provides a lush, soft carpet of grass that requires minimal watering, is drought, salt and shade tolerant, chinch-bug resistant, requires minimal fertilization, and takes well to new fertilizers with little or no phosphorus and nitrogen. Floridians installing the turf are eligible for green credits (Category Two: Water/Drought Tolerant Turf 2 points). Bethel Farms is fertilizing its newly planted crop with less than of the recommended amount of fertilizer. Using organic fertilizer, Todd likens the process to spoon-feeding. Pesticide application is another area where Bethel Farms employs management practices that result in benefits to the environment. A Smart Spray System utilizes GPS guidance and mapping to prevent overlap while applying pesticides. This reduces not only the amount of pesticides released but also the amount needed to apply to the turf, allowing the turf to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. During application the sprayer records the application paths on a computer console. Each job is recorded and can also be retrieved via Bluetooth. After retrieval the files can be uploaded into the companys highly sophisticated Farm Works record-keeping software for future reference of application levels and areas. The system improves Bethels sustainability efforts by reducing overuse of pesticides. The Sumter County farm records will be integrated into this software which has been used by Bethel Farms for seven-plus years. Farm Works changed how we gather, track, and receive information about our crops, said Brown. With the console in my truck, I am able to be hands on without actually having to be hands on. This is accomplished by uploading data e-mailed from their operations all across the southeastern United States. When on site, Brown is able to immediately view who applied what products, when and to what areas. I can visit a field, notice the sod color may be off and look up the application in Farm Works. Okay, I see herbicide was applied and that is the reason for the offcolor. In another instance perhaps changing a nutrient will produce a better result, so I make a note on the crop with that suggestion, explains Brown.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J UNE 7, 2012 Should Bushnell hand over law enforcement? I f you have concerns about the future of the Bushnell Police Department, the Monday, June 11, City Council meeting should address them. City leaders have planned a workshop to determine if the Bushnell Police Department will continue to exist, or if the Sumter County Sheriffs Office will take over the job of policing the city. Its not a simple question to answer and its one where the more input city leaders receive, the better. Having the sheriffs office provide law enforcement services to the city definitely has some benefits. It would allow the city of Bushnell to have access to the expertise housed inside the sheriffs office. It would provide the city with law enforcement abilities that the city could never afford on its own. One of the deciding factors for city leaders will be the cost. Will the city be better off financially paying the sheriffs office or better off having its own police department? Another good point, the sheriffs main headquarters is right down the road. Bushnell residents would not feel they were dealing with some remote entity if the change was made. But still, something would be missing no matter how good the change may sound. Residents like the idea of having their own city police department. Would the sheriffs office still post those little cards on the doors of businesses saying that an officer stopped by to check after hours? Would city residents be able to put a face on the law enforcement officer protecting them? There are lots of questions to be answered and the workshop is a good place to get those answers. Once city leaders choose a direction, City Manager Vince Ruano said its likely the board will take action at the Monday, July 9 meeting. Thank you, thank you, thank you During the month of May, the Bushnell Post Office collected can goods for the local residents that need assistance. The Refuge at Jumper Creek was a recipient of some of those amazing donations. Imagine our surprise when a call came in asking us to come with a truck to pick them up. We received bags and bags of donated food. We have received over $500 worth. We were able to reach over six families and give them help supplementing their food stamps this month. Thank you so much Bushnell for reaching out to assist us. Donna Fruzia, case manager The Refuge at Jumper Creek, In c. What is Obamas ideology?President Obamas rhetoric, spread the wealth around, everyone deserves a fair shot, the rich should pay their fair share all exemplify Obamas ideology to force everyone to be equal. Controlling auto companies and banking, heavy taxation of certain industries to destroy them (like coal mining) and favoring other industries (like green solar), are all economic activities Obama is already doing that conforms to his ideology, which is the same as his father in Kenya. The IRS is already prepared to enforce any strict rules. President Obamas ideology goal is A Society That Provides Equality And Economic Security For All through government ownership instead of private ownership and government planning of economic activities with strict rules. Tax some people and exempt others in order to spread the wealth around and force everyone to be equal, exempting political friends and supporters. In a democracy, we are all created equal by God and our constitution guarantees Americans the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. However, it cannot guarantee equal economic outcomes, only the freedom to achieve your dream under our capitalistic free market system. Many people have started a business in the garage or in their kitchen and some became millionaires. Many others have gotten jobs working for them. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and society. President Obama repeatedly claims that capitalism has never worked. That is not true. Where has his ideology ever worked? It has always taken away peoples freedom and cost millions of innocent lives where ever it has been tried. What is Obamas ideology? Its the same as the hope and change he has promised us. It is a far cry from what many foolish voters thought they were going to be getting. James Roehrborn Alexandria, Minn.

Thanks, Jerry Townsend Growers Market manager Nurse couple donate $1.2 million to Hospice Cornerstone Hospice Foundation is the recipient of a $1.2-million estate from Alfred and Vera Reetz of Leesburg, both medical professionals and once a hospice nurse. Both in their nineties, this philanthropic couple witnessed early on how valuable the need for hospice care positively impacts life-altering experiences of patients and families one family at a time. To date, its the largest cash gift received on record at Cornerstone Hospice. A private couple, Mr. and Mrs. Reetz had been married for 65 years, originally from Long Island, N.Y. Early in his career, Mr. Reetz worked as a hospice nurse at Cornerstone (previously known as Hospice of Lake and Sumter counties) which provided him a greater understanding of palliative care and its impact on families dealing with life-changing experiences. He was a graduate of Hillsdale College in Michigan and a member of its Independence Fund. In his retirement years; he tinkered with radios and transmitters, but his real passion was investing and the stock market. At 92-yearsyoung he was actively buying and selling stocks online; was internet and investment savvy. The Reetz didnt have children, but they held dear to their heart their two Weimaraner dogs that pre-deceased them. As soulmates, the couple would spend hours working together on brainteasing tasks such as puzzles and crosswords. The younger of the two by one year, Vera, was a nurse. She also was an avid indoor gardener, with a penchant for sunflowers. In her idle time she would also enjoy sewing. In her final days Mrs. Reetz was a patient at Cornerstone Hospice before she was called home. They lived frugally, were cognizant of the environment around them and did their part in recycling everything from prescription bottles to paper bags to plastic food receptacles to pens and paper clips. They also traveled abroad and spent time in Australia. We admire the Reetz benevolence, as it will help sustain many vital programs here at Cornerstone Hospice, said foundation executive director, Nick Buchholz, adding that through their generosity, patient care will benefit by programs such as Nurses Preceptor mentorship; Cornerstone Salutes!, a program recognizing veterans; Pets Peace of Mind, and grief counseling for both adults and children. The Cornerstone Hospice Foundation also supports four hospice houses: Lane Park at Tavares, Mike Conley Hospice House in Clermont; Lane Purcell Hospice House in Sumterville and The Villages Hospice House. This is one of the largest cash gifts received at Cornerstone Hospice, stated Desire Coleman-Cohrn, director of Planned Gifts and Major Gifts. Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care, a notfor-profit community-based healthcare organization, has provided care and services to central Florida residents experiencing life-limiting or lifethreatening illnesses.

For the fifth year, The Royal Historical, Enrichment and Art Program (RHEAP) announces Summer feeding and activities for children.

Or call 352-748-0260 or email:RoyalProject@cfl.rr. com. RHEAP is an afterschool and summer program held at the Alonzo A. Young, Sr. Enrichment & Historical Center in Wildwood. Without support from county officials the annual Royal Homecoming will not be held at the countyowned Royal Park this year, instead plans are being made to have the event nearby at an as-of-yet undisclosed location. The annual event is scheduled for Friday, June 15, through Sunday, June 17, and expects to draw more than 2,000 patrons on its final day. The annual community get-together became problematic several years ago as the homecoming drew more and more people to the county park. Along with higher attendance, the event also meant the county had to deal with more and more traffic, angry neighbors who were getting tied up in traffic jams and crowd control became an issue, county officials have said. In the end, the community event ended up costing the county a pretty penny from taxpayer coffers without any public sponsorship by the county. County commissioners have estimated that it cost the county thousands of dollars associated with the event. To help solve the issue, community leaders, in particular Beverly Steele and Cliff Hughes, began working with the county and property owners with land near the park in hopes that the homecoming could be moved to a nearby location that would better accommodate the large number of people who attend. Unfortunately, early negotiations fell through and organizers are now clambering to find a suitable location outside of Royal Park. When it came time for county commissioners to consider the issue late last month, county staff provided the board with three options concerning the homecoming at Royal Park: Option 1: do not allow or approve it. Option 2: Allow only small discrete, manageable functions. Option 3: Allow the entire scope of the Royal Homecoming as requested in and around Royal Park. In a 4-to-1 vote, commissioners approved Option 1. County Commission Chairman Garry Breeden cast the lone opposing vote. County Commissioner Doug Gilpin made the recommendation to approve Option 1, saying that the event has cost the county substantial money in the past; money that had not been approved for spending by taxpayers. Gilpin also voiced other concerns about the event. Its just not safe the way its happened for the last few years, he said. Were talking about $50,000 of taxpayer money to manage this event. Steele is scheduled to finalize plans for the event with county commissioners when the board meets on Tuesday, June 12.

Gregory Leon Christian, 46, was charged with three counts of burglary and three counts of grand theft. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $225,000. Christian made a deputy suspicious about 4:40 a.m. when the deputy saw a vehicle behind Florida Designer Cabinets, near County Road 526 and U.S. 301, with no license plate and the truck flapping open with a pressure washer inside, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The driver fled in the vehicle when the deputy attempted to make contact, Hofecker said. The vehicle was later found abandoned in the 800 block of County Road 539 in Sumterville. The sheriffs office then conducted a search using several canines and a helicopter but couldnt locate the suspect. Deputies were able to identify the suspect as Christian and they arrested him later that same day at a home on N.E. 9th Street in Wildwood, Hofecker said. Authorities recovered two lawn mowers and seized other items believed to be stolen in other burglaries Christian is also suspected in several other burglaries in the Wildwood area, Hofecker said. Additional charges are pending the results of an investigation.

The collision happened at 7:30 p.m., June 4, while the bus was traveling northbound on the interstate in the outside northbound lane near milepost 333, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The bus, driven by Jose Juan Roldan Torres, 42, of Mexico, slowed due to congested traffic, the report states. An Isuzu truck, driven by Jasmin Beganovic, 28, of St. Petersburg, was traveling behind the bus and failed to notice that it was slowing down. As a result, the front of the truck struck the rear of the bus, according to the report. The impact forced the truck to travel off the paved portion of the road and down the east grass embankment, spinning clockwise before striking several small trees. The bus went onto the east emergency shoulder of the road. A passenger in the truck, Tajson Beganovic, 19, St. Petersburg, was critically injured and taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. The bus was transporting 27 passengers from Lake Wales to Mexico, the report states. Charges are pending the results of an investigation. 27 uninjured in I-75 bus accident B OB R EICHMAN Editor Puppeteer Holli Reuben, of Bits N Pieces Puppet Theatre, Inc., is shown with her puppet, Jerry.

The caller indicated a fire was involving conveyor equipment, and quickly encroaching on a large storage structure at the American Cement complex on C.R. 470 in Sumterville. Being familiar with the facility, and the various large structures at the site, the initial command officer called for assistance from surrounding fire agencies while enroute to the incident. Upon arrival, crews found fire from the ground level to the top of a 70 foot high conveyor structure, with flames extending to a large storage building of similar height. Quick actions by firefighters kept the fire from extending into the structure, and they were able to extinguish the fire within 20 minutes, allowing them to cancel requests for outside assistance.

We sure did! Lake Panasoffkee was smiling the whole time. We sure thank God for it, maybe the rain turtle helped a little. Our boat ramp rose at least 4 inches and all the fish are doing back flips everywhere, what a blessing. With the rain, the bluegill and shellcrackers were ready for a feast. Larry Birge from Ridge Manor caught a very nice string; they had been on the beds. Their little tails were raw from all the fanning; I have never noticed that before. I would love to see this as it is happening. Wow. Russell Stephens and family from Alabama had a great time. These guys really enjoyed their stay with us, and fished the whole time. Mr. Stephens has had a lot of luck the last few weeks on the lake. What a very great group of men. Yall really need to all come out to enjoy the fishing, and if fishing isnt your thing, just enjoy the wildlife around us here at Tracys Point on Lake Panasoffkee. The ospreys have this nest behind our bait shop and every day I have gotten to witness the mom and dad fishing and feeding their young. They are just starting to learn to fly. What an awesome sight. What a fantastic diversion from the rat race of the big cities. Trust me prior to purchasing Tracys Point almost 10 years ago my job required approximately 90 percent travel. If youve ever experienced rush hour traffic in Los Angeles or New York you know what Im talking about. Our newest fishing guide is Ray Wright. He has a guide service based out of Hernando County and in addition to freshwater guide services, he also does a good business in salt water so if freshwater bass fishing isnt for you, Ray can put you on some nice red fish, trout and other tasty fish just call Steve Lind at 352-793-8060 and he can hook you up with Ray. I can honestly say that I have never seen Ray come back empty handed from Lake Panasoffkee I asked him what his secret is to his tremendous fishing success. His response I fish the Wright way Well in closing all of us at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge would like to thank our community for your support and welcome all to enjoy our beautiful lake and surroundings.

P AGE 8S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J UNE 7, 2012 Field finishes field South Sumter Middle School has a brand new softball field this year, the girls team was able to play three of their seven ga mes at home. The work on the field was completed by plant manager Walt Field (shown), who has been on campus for the past two years. He has several p rojects in the works. South Sumter Middle School has some major campus changes under way, including a paint job, signage and a brand new ball field. For the girls softball team, it was a first in playing home games on their own turf in a long time and the first time ever, the field has been fenced in, according to school plant manager Walt Field. Dugouts have been built and water fountains installed. Now in his second year with the school, hes bringing several things to the table based on what he knows as a parent his own daughter Samantha played softball for the middle school a few years ago. I set my own personal goals, Field said of the things hes put in motion. The ball field was approved and materials were on site before he ever arrived at the school, but the work had remained on hold there was a question about where the field should be located, he said. He began making contacts and asking questions, eventually putting things in motion and getting the field completed. He brought his expertise in managing a much larger facility to the school and notes that a key goal for him is to build Raider pride. Field, who was named this years School-Related Employee of the Year for South Sumter Middle School, is working toward adding a sand volleyball area and is also working on renovations to the school observatory. The building itself swivels on a turret, he said, noting that when the bus loop was paved, the power to the building was cut. In recent months hes cleaned the telescope, put in a new engine and oiled and lubed the facility. Everything in there is functional again, he said. Field had been going through yearbooks when he noticed that there had been an observatory team at the school. His drive as a parent adds to his desire to push for improvements and more for the kids. As for the new softball field, It made a huge difference just practicewise, said Coach Kelly McCarthy. Weve been able to practice here at home, and they held three of their seven games at home too. Before they were playing at Kenny Dixon Sports Complex in Bushnell and whenever they did do anything on campus, they had to deal with potholes and the field itself was just as hard as a rock. The ground was so hard, the ball would just bounce, McCarthy said. They also had portables where the current outfield is. McCarthy, a fifth year coach for the school, said the new field has also had an impact on school spirit. The girls softball team has been undefeated for the last several years. Sumter sports B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Garrett Hurst (seated, center) signed on to play ball for Thomas University as he continues his education. Hurst is seated between his mom Melanie and Thomas University coach, John Updike. Other family, friends and Wildwood staff include (back row, left to right) Hursts grandfather Tommy Hurst and his dad Ken Hurst, his grandfather George Shealy and Wildwood Middle High School assistant coach Kevin Lidle, Jarrod Bubby Hurst; (second row, left to right) Hursts grandmother Dee Hurst, his great-grandmother Jackie Hurst, Wildwood Middle High School Coach Kevin Cardona, Hursts grandmother Betty Shealy. Tim and Katie Dietz were also on hand for the signing, but are not pictured. Jake Phillips was one of three Wildwood baseball players to sign on with Thomas University earlier this month. With a long history of the game behind him and a spot on the Georgia university team, Phillips will focus on school, baseball, family and friends as he begins to pursue a degree in education. He plans to become a history teacher. Phillips thinks about possibilities and the future and what that will look like: In a perfect world, me in a Braves or Rays uniform in a few years! Whether that happens or not, I intend to be the best possible history teacher I can. Wildcats starting pitcher and third baseman Garrett Hurst finished up a four-year baseball career with Wildwood this season. The senior graduated Wildwood last week and has already signed on with Thomas University to continue his education and keep playing ball. Coming from a family of athletes, Hurst began playing T-ball at age five in Wildwood Dixie Youth and he credits his dad with his pursuit of the game. He was my coach in Dixie Youth and travel ball, the younger Hurst said of his dad. He grew up playing the sport and by the time he was a teen, was playing world series youth ball. When I was 13, my travel ball team, The Marion Mob went to the USSSA World Series in Atlanta. Opening ceremonies were at Turner Field, where the Braves play and we go to walk out on the field and be announced. During that series, they played teams from around the United States, including Puerto Rico. Out of all those teams, they finished fifth in their division. Hurst is a young man who has set the bar high when it comes to what he expects from himself. His goal is to always excel and do the best I can do for my team. This year, his last in Wildwood Middle High School, Hurst and the team faced new challenges. We were placed in a new division, which meant playing teams they had never faced before. But even with the new challenges, the team and Hurst excelled. This year my ERA was under one for most of the regular season and I threw a no-hitter in one of our district games. He was also selected to play on the All-District team this year. Of his years playing the sport, Hurst said, You can learn many life lessons from baseball. One thing I have learned is that baseball is a game of failure. A good batting average in the majors is .300 that means that for every 10 times a batter comes to the plate, he fails seven out of those 10 times. In baseball, just like life, its not about the failures its about what you take with you to next at-bat. Hurst will continue to play ball as he attends college and for the next few years, his focus will be to play good, to help my team and work hard to finish my education. As he moves forward, he will work on getting stronger and rely on his ability as a hard worker. Hurst is the son of Ken and Melanie Hurst of Oxford and has one younger brother, Jarrod, now 13. The youngest Hurst is also pursuing sports. He was on Wildwoods JV team this year and moved up to varsity. As a student at Thomas, Hurst plans to pursue a teaching degree And become a high school math teacher and baseball coach. Jake Phillips signed on to play ball and complete his education with Thomas University.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J UNE 7, 2012, P AGE 11 I want to make learning about history fun and interesting for my students. Phillips has played catcher, pitcher and first base for the Wildcats in his four-year high school career. But he actually began a baseball career more than a decade earlier. Playing for the past 13 years, he began playing in Lady Lake Little League. He said he heard about league sign-ups during his kindergarten year and asked his parents if he could play. Actually, its them he credits with his pursuit of the game. They were always avid baseball fans, so of course I wanted to be just like them. And my high school coach, Adam Cardona, who has stood beside and supported all of us for these past four years. He has reinforced what we have learned, refined our skills and shown us how important teamwork can be, Phillips said. And just what does he expect from himself? As clich as it sounds, I expect perfection. When thinking back on his playing history, Phillips said, The top three events that stick out in my mind are my first home run, the triple play we turned my sophomore year and my second grand slam I hit this year. When we turned the triple play it was bases loaded no outs. A ground ball was hit to Garrett Hurst at third, he threw the ball to Drew Terry at home getting the runner from third. Then Drew threw the ball to me to get the batter out at first. I threw back to Drew to get the runner trying to score from second. As for the grand slam, We were down 6-2 against Umatilla and the starter walked the batter to load the bases and the coach pulled him to bring in a new pitcher. The first pitch I saw was a fastball, a little low and in, and I hit a towering shot to the right that landed in the parking lot. This year, Phillips batted .429 with a .651 slugging percentage with 28 RBI and both the homeruns he hit as grand slams. He was named to the All District team and named Offensive Player of the Year at Wildwood Middle High School. As for challenges this year, We are just such a small school, we had to use some young and inexperienced players to field a team. These boys are very lucky that they will have extra years of varsity coaching, he said. Phillips says its his arm and consistency that are his strengths and believes that working on all aspects of the game are important to keep play up to par. Phillips is the son of Paula and James Phillips and has two sisters Lauren, who is older and Emma, who is younger. The family lives in Wildwood and Phillips points out, Even though I came here in sixth grade I consider myself to be from Wildwood. And along with his memories and a scholarship, Phillips takes life lessons from his baseball experiences, which he said has taught him the value of hard work and dedication. Raider team captains expressed their gratitude to the Raider community for their support with the helmet program. Supporters we re able to have the helmet marked as supporters requested and the following is a list of the supporters who paid an individual purchase price f or a helmet. They are: Steven Sylvester, ACE Hardware, Karrie Markland, Drosso, Devin Blough, Mary McLain, Larry Simmons, Valerie Cullum, Swenson Cons truction, Kelly Rice, Joey Hooten, Matt Ellis, Ferdie Serra, Sanchez, Tom Moffitt, Ed and Rosa Lee Tomberlin, Reba Mazak, Kirnes-Maxwell, South Sumter High School Booster Club, Rick Sherman, Sumter County Farmers Market, T&D Concrete, Jean Callahan, G.S. Hunt, Belinda Maitre, Inman Sherman Jr., Dr. Mitchell, Mirian Story, Marc Elliott, Gene Elliott, Barn Crew, Jimmy Wade, PA, Kim Carter, Louie Williams, Hunt Surveying. Shawn David Aten plans to major in business as he attends Thomas University in Georgia. But he hasnt closed the door on other possibilities he signed on to play baseball for the university and has four years of school to complete. The Wildwood Middle High School graduate spent the last four years playing both shortstop and pitcher on the high school team but has been honing his skills in the game since before he was in grade school, playing T-ball in the Wildwood Dixie Youth League. I just fell in love with the game, he said of his pursuit of the game. Although just graduating high school and signing on for a ball scholarship, Aten already has a list of achievements and experiences through ball, because of having played at so many different levels, from T-Ball to travel ball. He has been to Amsterdam where he served as an American Sports Ambassador and has played at the Pittsburg Pirates spring training facilities for the Underarmor team. Now he obtains his next level of education, thanks to baseball and his skills on the field. He looks back on his high school baseball career and recalls striking out 16 batters against The Villages in a 3-2 victory at their school as among some of the most memorable. Then there was, My first high school homerun which also came at The Villages field, and finally, the triple play we turned in a game at home. Aten is happy with his performance this past year, playing both sides of the ball. He had the highest batting average of .476 with 25 RBIs and a .521 on base percentage. On the defensive side of the ball I did well playing shortstop and pitching. In pitching he was 8-2 with 73 strikeouts on the season and a win percentage of .857 an all around solid performance. Of challenges for the team this year, Aten said he believes they faced fewer challenges this year than in past. I believe the biggest challenge was the lack of depth on the team. It was the same guys that had to push through the sore arms and fatigue of the season. They only had two starting pitchers, which was definitely a challenge for the team. But I am proud of myself and Garrett Hurst for sticking it out. We ended up pulling out a 16-4 regular season, he said. And what about the future, what should the public be watching for? I think you should look for three players from Wildwood High School making a great impact at Thomas University. As for his strengths in the game, he said he feels its his general knowledge of the game and all the experience I have accommodated over the multiple years of playing. I would also say I have a strong arm and I am a great contact hitter that sees the ball very well. And there are lessons in baseball as well. The most important thing I have learned over the years is that baseball is a game of failure, so dont get down on yourself if something doesnt work out. Get it done the next attempt. Atens goal by high school graduation was to sign a letter of intent to play ball at the next level. Its done. Now he looks forward to playing ball at that higher level, but more importantly, to further his education. I am glad I am given the opportunity to play ball at the next level, but his main focus will be on school and said most important is the education that I will be receiving. Baseball is a temporary thing, education and knowledge is forever. Aten is the son of Tammy and Clinton Smith of Wildwood and has three siblings: half-brother Kevin Aten, stepbrother Matthew Smith and stepsister, Brittney Smith. Showing their appreciation ... Sumter sports Shawn Aten (seated center) is shown shaking hands with Coach Jon Updike of Thomas University. Aten signed on to play baseball for the Georgia school. Aten, a Wildwood Middle High School graduate, played as a Wildcat for Coach Adam Cardona through high school. Earlier this month, Cardona hosted the signing, where family and friends gathered to watch as Aten made the commitment. Shown with him are: (seated left) Atens mom Tammy Aten Smith; (second row, left to right) Brittnie Rentfrow, Shelby Lewis, Brittney Smith and Clinton Smith; (back row, left to right) John St. Amant, David Aten and Randy Lewis.

A lthough June 1 is the start of hurricane season, we have already experienced two named storms that formed in May. Could this be an indication that this year may be an active hurricane season? Now is the time to have your disaster plan in place. Do you live in a low lying area? Do you live near a river? Would your property flood if we received heavy rains? Do you live in a mobile home? Have a plan long before a disaster hits. What will you do if you have a pet or multiple pets and you have to evacuate? If it is not safe for you to stay, it is not safe for your pets. If you leave your pets behind, it is likely your pets will not survive. Prepare now! Make sure your pets vaccinations are current. Most pet friendly shelters and boarding facilities will require you to show proof of current vaccinations. Carry your pets vaccination records with you in a waterproof pouch. If you plan to stay in a pet friendly hotel, confirm reservations early. Along with your own supplies, bring with you plenty of food for your pet, water, pet supplies, a crate, and pet medications that your pet may be taking. Make sure your pet is wearing identification. Having your pet micro-chipped is an added way to assure that you are reunited with your pet should you become separated. Have a second plan to fall back on if your first plan cannot be implemented. For example, if the hotel is full, or if there are no vacancies at the boarding facility, you will need to implement your back up plan. Your back up plan may be to drive to Georgia. If you need to evacuate, leave as early as possible so as not to get caught in evacuation traffic jams. When a hurricane is coming your way, call a family member or friend outside the projected impact area to let them know where you plan to be. We must make responsible decisions for our own safety as well as for the safety of our pets. If a hurricane is approaching, take action. Stay calm, implement your disaster plan, and stay safe through our hurricane season. Next week: Disaster Preparedness for Livestock.

On Bushnell police speak now, or hold your peaceIf you want to have your say in the future of Bushnells law enforcement, the Monday, June 11, City Council meeting is the one to attend. City leaders will hold a workshop to determine if the Bushnell Police Department will continue to exist, or if the Sumter County Sheriffs Office will take over the job of policing the city. We are pursuing two avenues, said City Manager Vince Ruano either contracting with the sheriffs office or looking at the list of five candidates they have for the position of police chief. The idea of the meeting on the 11th is to solicit more citizens input and to disseminate more information on the sheriffs proposal what kind of services, what kind of staffing levels, what the costs are, or if there are savings, what that would be, Ruano said. They will also consider what other resources might be available to the city under the sheriffs contract. Those resources dont just include physical assets, but expertise as well, he said. For example, the sheriffs office has eight to 10 investigators that are experts in those areas, where city staff would have to be more like a jack-of-all trades, Ruano explained. There are many, many resources that the sheriff has that we will likely never have because we are a small city. If they choose to contract with the sheriff, there would not be a police department office and the public would access records, traffic reports and other information from the sheriffs office. However, all the demographic and statistical information would remain separate. That would mean one lieutenant ( working a 40hour week) who reports to Ruano and the City Council and oversees six deputies and an investigator. The supervisor will be responsible for serving as a liaison to the community, meeting with the public and if theres negative feedback, that person can also be replaced, Ruano said. As for the workshop, Ruano pointed out that the public will be noticed of the meeting in their utility bills and through other means. Once they choose a direction, he said its likely theyll take action at the Monday, July 9 meeting, either moving on a contract, or paring down the list of five candidates to a final two or three.

Lynn Tabb, 48, was arrested by agents of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). Alongside his attorney, Bill Grant, Tabb who most recently served as a deputy turned himself in to Sumter County authorities in Bushnell at the Sumter County Sheriffs Office. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office had terminated Tabbs employment last Thursday on agency policy violations of absence from duty without proper notification, officials with the agency said in a news release. Grant called the Chronicle (a sister newspaper of the Sumter County Times) last Friday afternoon to say his client is innocent. Grant accused the sheriffs office of retribution against his client for having material problems with some of the sex cases the agency was working. I think justice has been prejudiced, Grant said. But Citrus Sheriff Jeff Dawsy called Grants allegations absurd, and said his office and the prosecutors office sought to make sure not a hint of impropriety was present in pursuance of the case against Tabb. We got FDLE involved very quickly because we wanted an independent agency to examine the evidence and ensure the integrity of not only our agency to make sure the truth came out independent of us. We wanted to show no one is above the law and if wrongdoing is reported, it will be investigated thoroughly and arrests will be made if necessary, Dawsy said. He said the State Attorneys Office also transferred investigation of the matter to its Ocala office. According to the release from the sheriffs office, about a month and halfGrowing inSumter Bushnell to decide fate of police dept ABDONSIDIBE Special to the Times Inside If you take a drive along C.R. 470, between Lake Panasoffkee and Sumterville, chances are youll notice an increase in activity most notably on the north side of the road, where massive sprayers can be seen rolling along acres of land. Its the home of Bethel Farms newest sod farm. Touted as the nations leading grower/supplier of premium sod and grass plugs, the business has become one of Floridas leading agriculture companies. Based in Central Florida, the family-owned and operated business employs more than 100 people and utilizes more than 4,000 acres of land around the Southeastern United States. The Sumter County farm is approximately 300 acres and is managed by veteran grower Chuck Todd he has more than 30 years of experience in the turfgrass industry. Todd is a Webster resident and his family has farmed in Sumter County for decades. He is a member of the Florida Sod Growers Association and on the advisory board for the University of Florida Extension Service. He is a past director of the Farm Bureau. It will be Todds responsibility to develop and operate the Sumter County farm, adhering to the stringent requirements of the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), especially as they affect nearby Lake Panasoffkee and the Withlacoochee River.

Lynn Tabb Darrien Roshad Grady Man suspected of sexual battery was once sex crimes detective Armed home invader arrested Police say a gun-bearing suspect draped in black clothing entered a Wildwood home last week and confronted two people inside demanding money while he focused a gun on one of the victims, according to a Wildwood Police Department report. The suspect was later identified as Darrien Roshad Grady, 18, of Wildwood, according to an arrest report. Grady was arrested on Thursday, May 31, and charged with home invasion robbery with a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, larceny, burglary and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $75,000. Grady is accused of unlawfully entering the Wildwood home on Lawrence Street shortly after midnight on May 31, according to a police officers report.

The complainant also mentioned allegations that Tabb had sexually abused a young girl. The sheriffs offices child protective investigators looked into the alleged physical abuse, which turned out to be unfounded, according to officials. However, the matter involving alleged sexual abuse of a minor was turned over to the agencys Special Victims Unit, where Tabb previously worked, for followup. Dawsy said about four weeks ago FDLE was engaged to handle the case because of transparency and also because the case was multi-jurisdictional with witnesses and alleged sex acts occurring outside of Citrus County as well as within the county. The alleged female victim of the abuse currently is an adult in her early 20s who no longer resides in Citrus County, according to the sheriffs office. According to the arrest warrant, the sexual abuse occurred on multiple occasions at different locations between January 2003 and December 2008. Tabb was expected to be transported from Sumter County to the Citrus County Detention Facility to face the charges against him. Tabb was hired by the sheriffs office in October 2003. He ended his employment in September 2006 and temporarily relocated out West to be with an ailing family member, according to the agency. He eventually returned to Citrus County and was rehired in August 2007. The sheriffs office said Tabbs prior disciplinary action included one instance of conduct unbecoming an officer that resulted from an internal affairs investigation in August 2010, when he received a suspension without pay, plus reassignment to road patrol. A second discipline in September 2009 involved his repeated failure to properly follow up and document cases or respond to phone calls. He reportedly received a written reprimand and probation. While Im highly appreciative of FDLEs thorough efforts in conducting this investigation, Im both disappointed and disturbed that a deputy sheriff could even be responsible for such a heinous crime, Dawsy said in the release. ARREST continued from Page 1 chrome handgun, confronted the homeowner and a visitor in the living room, according to the report. He reportedly ordered the victims to get on the floor and then demanded money from the homeowner while pointing the firearm at the victim. Grady took an undisclosed amount of petty cash from a bank bag in the living room and also took a twenty dollar bill from the visiting guest, the report states. He then took the homeowners car keys and entered her 2009 Chevrolet Impala and removed her purse containing personal property, credit cards and about $850, the report states. He then fled on foot. During an interview later that same day, the homeowner told a sheriffs deputy that she recognized Gradys voice during the incident and called to him by name. When confronted by a deputy, Grady reportedly admitted to the offenses because he wanted the money, the report states. He refused to tell investigators the location of the stolen money or the firearm that was used. Grady reportedly has 14 prior felony convictions, all within Florida court systems, the report states. GUNcontinued from Page 1 Grady reportedly has 14 prior felony convictions, all within Florida court systems. But according to Todd, the requirements are minima1. Bethel Farms has not only met all of the requirements imposed on us by the regulatory agencies, but we have exceeded them and will continue to do so. We take stewardship of our natural resources very seriously and always go above and beyond the minimum, he said. The companys commitment to environmental integrity is reflected in several areas. While irrigating the farms fields with even less water than regulation allows, Todd is also managing the development of a landfill water filtration, conservation and retention system. The system will use refuse water from the City of Bushnell in a cooperative program funded in part by a SWFWMD grant with oversight provided by FDEP and Floridas USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. The filtration system will result in water that is cleaned twice. Once by the City of Bushnell and again by Bethel Farms, using a series of wetlands created by earth berms and ponds planted with native vegetation. Water will enter the 1.6 acre filtration area through a rock bed which will diffuse it into the first pond. Flow control structures will move the water through two more wetland areas before filtering it into a final pond from where it will be put to use irrigating the turfgrass. When completed, the water filtration system will be the Sumter County farms primary source of irrigation water. The turfgrass itself is another example of the companys innovation and commitment. Years ago we recognized that water use issues were growing. They directly affected our customers, explains Bethels Vice President of Turf Jonathan Brown. We sought out turfgrass varieties that demonstrated better drought tolerance and water efficiencies. Where varieties didnt exist to solve their customers needs, the company developed them. One such product is their Empire Zoysia (pronounced Zoi-zhuh) grass. Introduced in 2000, the Empire Zoysia grass provides a lush, soft carpet of grass that requires minimal watering, is drought, salt and shade tolerant, chinch-bug resistant, requires minimal fertilization, and takes well to new fertilizers with little or no phosphorus and nitrogen. Floridians installing the turf are eligible for green credits (Category Two: Water/Drought Tolerant Turf 2 points). Bethel Farms is fertilizing its newly planted crop with less than of the recommended amount of fertilizer. Using organic fertilizer, Todd likens the process to spoon-feeding. Pesticide application is another area where Bethel Farms employs management practices that result in benefits to the environment. A Smart Spray System utilizes GPS guidance and mapping to prevent overlap while applying pesticides. This reduces not only the amount of pesticides released but also the amount needed to apply to the turf, allowing the turf to remain sustainable and eco-friendly. During application the sprayer records the application paths on a computer console. Each job is recorded and can also be retrieved via Bluetooth. After retrieval the files can be uploaded into the companys highly sophisticated Farm Works record-keeping software for future reference of application levels and areas. The system improves Bethels sustainability efforts by reducing overuse of pesticides. The Sumter County farm records will be integrated into this software which has been used by Bethel Farms for seven-plus years. Farm Works changed how we gather, track, and receive information about our crops, said Brown. With the console in my truck, I am able to be hands on without actually having to be hands on. This is accomplished by uploading data e-mailed from their operations all across the southeastern United States. When on site, Brown is able to immediately view who applied what products, when and to what areas. I can visit a field, notice the sod color may be off and look up the application in Farm Works. Okay, I see herbicide was applied and that is the reason for the offcolor. In another instance perhaps changing a nutrient will produce a better result, so I make a note on the crop with that suggestion, explains Brown.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE7, 2012 Should Bushnell hand over law enforcement? If you have concerns about the future of the Bushnell Police Department, the Monday, June 11, City Council meeting should address them. City leaders have planned a workshop to determine if the Bushnell Police Department will continue to exist, or if the Sumter County Sheriffs Office will take over the job of policing the city. Its not a simple question to answer and its one where the more input city leaders receive, the better. Having the sheriffs office provide law enforcement services to the city definitely has some benefits. It would allow the city of Bushnell to have access to the expertise housed inside the sheriffs office. It would provide the city with law enforcement abilities that the city could never afford on its own. One of the deciding factors for city leaders will be the cost. Will the city be better off financially paying the sheriffs office or better off having its own police department? Another good point, the sheriffs main headquarters is right down the road. Bushnell residents would not feel they were dealing with some remote entity if the change was made. But still, something would be missing no matter how good the change may sound. Residents like the idea of having their own city police department. Would the sheriffs office still post those little cards on the doors of businesses saying that an officer stopped by to check after hours? Would city residents be able to put a face on the law enforcement officer protecting them? There are lots of questions to be answered and the workshop is a good place to get those answers. Once city leaders choose a direction, City Manager Vince Ruano said its likely the board will take action at the Monday, July 9 meeting. Thank you, thank you, thank youDuring the month of May, the Bushnell Post Office collected can goods for the local residents that need assistance. The Refuge at Jumper Creek was a recipient of some of those amazing donations. Imagine our surprise when a call came in asking us to come with a truck to pick them up. We received bags and bags of donated food. We have received over $500 worth. We were able to reach over six families and give them help supplementing their food stamps this month. Thank you so much Bushnell for reaching out to assist us. Donna Fruzia, case manager The Refuge at Jumper Creek, Inc. What is Obamas ideology?President Obamas rhetoric, spread the wealth around, everyone deserves a fair shot, the rich should pay their fair share all exemplify Obamas ideology to force everyone to be equal. Controlling auto companies and banking, heavy taxation of certain industries to destroy them (like coal mining) and favoring other industries (like green solar), are all economic activities Obama is already doing that conforms to his ideology, which is the same as his father in Kenya. The IRS is already prepared to enforce any strict rules. President Obamas ideology goal is A Society That Provides Equality And Economic Security For All through government ownership instead of private ownership and government planning of economic activities with strict rules. Tax some people and exempt others in order to spread the wealth around and force everyone to be equal, exempting political friends and supporters. In a democracy, we are all created equal by God and our constitution guarantees Americans the right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. However, it cannot guarantee equal economic outcomes, only the freedom to achieve your dream under our capitalistic free market system. Many people have started a business in the garage or in their kitchen and some became millionaires. Many others have gotten jobs working for them. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and society. President Obama repeatedly claims that capitalism has never worked. That is not true. Where has his ideology ever worked? It has always taken away peoples freedom and cost millions of innocent lives where ever it has been tried. What is Obamas ideology? Its the same as the hope and change he has promised us. It is a far cry from what many foolish voters thought they were going to be getting.

Thanks, Jerry Townsend Growers Market manager Nurse couple donate $1.2 million to Hospice Cornerstone Hospice Foundation is the recipient of a $1.2-million estate from Alfred and Vera Reetz of Leesburg, both medical professionals and once a hospice nurse. Both in their nineties, this philanthropic couple witnessed early on how valuable the need for hospice care positively impacts life-altering experiences of patients and families one family at a time. To date, its the largest cash gift received on record at Cornerstone Hospice. A private couple, Mr. and Mrs. Reetz had been married for 65 years, originally from Long Island, N.Y. Early in his career, Mr. Reetz worked as a hospice nurse at Cornerstone (previously known as Hospice of Lake and Sumter counties) which provided him a greater understanding of palliative care and its impact on families dealing with life-changing experiences. He was a graduate of Hillsdale College in Michigan and a member of its Independence Fund. In his retirement years; he tinkered with radios and transmitters, but his real passion was investing and the stock market. At 92-yearsyoung he was actively buying and selling stocks online; was internet and investment savvy. The Reetz didnt have children, but they held dear to their heart their two Weimaraner dogs that pre-deceased them. As soulmates, the couple would spend hours working together on brainteasing tasks such as puzzles and crosswords. The younger of the two by one year, Vera, was a nurse. She also was an avid indoor gardener, with a penchant for sunflowers. In her idle time she would also enjoy sewing. In her final days Mrs. Reetz was a patient at Cornerstone Hospice before she was called home. They lived frugally, were cognizant of the environment around them and did their part in recycling everything from prescription bottles to paper bags to plastic food receptacles to pens and paper clips. They also traveled abroad and spent time in Australia. We admire the Reetz benevolence, as it will help sustain many vital programs here at Cornerstone Hospice, said foundation executive director, Nick Buchholz, adding that through their generosity, patient care will benefit by programs such as Nurses Preceptor mentorship; Cornerstone Salutes!, a program recognizing veterans; Pets Peace of Mind, and grief counseling for both adults and children. The Cornerstone Hospice Foundation also supports four hospice houses: Lane Park at Tavares, Mike Conley Hospice House in Clermont; Lane Purcell Hospice House in Sumterville and The Villages Hospice House. This is one of the largest cash gifts received at Cornerstone Hospice, stated Desire Coleman-Cohrn, director of Planned Gifts and Major Gifts. Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care, a notfor-profit community-based healthcare organization, has provided care and services to central Florida residents experiencing life-limiting or lifethreatening illnesses.

For the fifth year, The Royal Historical, Enrichment and Art Program (RHEAP) announces Summer feeding and activities for children.

Or call 352-748-0260 or email:RoyalProject@cfl.rr. com. RHEAP is an afterschool and summer program held at the Alonzo A. Young, Sr. Enrichment & Historical Center in Wildwood. Without support from county officials the annual Royal Homecoming will not be held at the countyowned Royal Park this year, instead plans are being made to have the event nearby at an as-of-yet undisclosed location. The annual event is scheduled for Friday, June 15, through Sunday, June 17, and expects to draw more than 2,000 patrons on its final day. The annual community get-together became problematic several years ago as the homecoming drew more and more people to the county park. Along with higher attendance, the event also meant the county had to deal with more and more traffic, angry neighbors who were getting tied up in traffic jams and crowd control became an issue, county officials have said. In the end, the community event ended up costing the county a pretty penny from taxpayer coffers without any public sponsorship by the county. County commissioners have estimated that it cost the county thousands of dollars associated with the event. To help solve the issue, community leaders, in particular Beverly Steele and Cliff Hughes, began working with the county and property owners with land near the park in hopes that the homecoming could be moved to a nearby location that would better accommodate the large number of people who attend. Unfortunately, early negotiations fell through and organizers are now clambering to find a suitable location outside of Royal Park. When it came time for county commissioners to consider the issue late last month, county staff provided the board with three options concerning the homecoming at Royal Park: Option 1: do not allow or approve it. Option 2: Allow only small discrete, manageable functions. Option 3: Allow the entire scope of the Royal Homecoming as requested in and around Royal Park. In a 4-to-1 vote, commissioners approved Option 1. County Commission Chairman Garry Breeden cast the lone opposing vote. County Commissioner Doug Gilpin made the recommendation to approve Option 1, saying that the event has cost the county substantial money in the past; money that had not been approved for spending by taxpayers. Gilpin also voiced other concerns about the event. Its just not safe the way its happened for the last few years, he said. Were talking about $50,000 of taxpayer money to manage this event. Steele is scheduled to finalize plans for the event with county commissioners when the board meets on Tuesday, June 12.

Gregory Leon Christian, 46, was charged with three counts of burglary and three counts of grand theft. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $225,000. Christian made a deputy suspicious about 4:40 a.m. when the deputy saw a vehicle behind Florida Designer Cabinets, near County Road 526 and U.S. 301, with no license plate and the truck flapping open with a pressure washer inside, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The driver fled in the vehicle when the deputy attempted to make contact, Hofecker said. The vehicle was later found abandoned in the 800 block of County Road 539 in Sumterville. The sheriffs office then conducted a search using several canines and a helicopter but couldnt locate the suspect. Deputies were able to identify the suspect as Christian and they arrested him later that same day at a home on N.E. 9th Street in Wildwood, Hofecker said. Authorities recovered two lawn mowers and seized other items believed to be stolen in other burglaries Christian is also suspected in several other burglaries in the Wildwood area, Hofecker said. Additional charges are pending the results of an investigation.

The collision happened at 7:30 p.m., June 4, while the bus was traveling northbound on the interstate in the outside northbound lane near milepost 333, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The bus, driven by Jose Juan Roldan Torres, 42, of Mexico, slowed due to congested traffic, the report states. An Isuzu truck, driven by Jasmin Beganovic, 28, of St. Petersburg, was traveling behind the bus and failed to notice that it was slowing down. As a result, the front of the truck struck the rear of the bus, according to the report. The impact forced the truck to travel off the paved portion of the road and down the east grass embankment, spinning clockwise before striking several small trees. The bus went onto the east emergency shoulder of the road. A passenger in the truck, Tajson Beganovic, 19, St. Petersburg, was critically injured and taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. The bus was transporting 27 passengers from Lake Wales to Mexico, the report states. Charges are pending the results of an investigation. 27 uninjured in I-75 bus accident BOBREICHMAN Editor Puppeteer Holli Reuben, of Bits N Pieces Puppet Theatre, Inc., is shown with her puppet, Jerry.

The caller indicated a fire was involving conveyor equipment, and quickly encroaching on a large storage structure at the American Cement complex on C.R. 470 in Sumterville. Being familiar with the facility, and the various large structures at the site, the initial command officer called for assistance from surrounding fire agencies while enroute to the incident. Upon arrival, crews found fire from the ground level to the top of a 70 foot high conveyor structure, with flames extending to a large storage building of similar height. Quick actions by firefighters kept the fire from extending into the structure, and they were able to extinguish the fire within 20 minutes, allowing them to cancel requests for outside assistance.

PAGE8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE7, 2012 Field finishes fieldSouth Sumter Middle School has a brand new softball field this year, the girls team was able to play three of their seven games at home. The work on the field was completed by plant manager Walt Field (shown), who has been on campus for the past two years. He has several projects in the works. South Sumter Middle School has some major campus changes under way, including a paint job, signage and a brand new ball field. For the girls softball team, it was a first in playing home games on their own turf in a long time and the first time ever, the field has been fenced in, according to school plant manager Walt Field. Dugouts have been built and water fountains installed. Now in his second year with the school, hes bringing several things to the table based on what he knows as a parent his own daughter Samantha played softball for the middle school a few years ago. I set my own personal goals, Field said of the things hes put in motion. The ball field was approved and materials were on site before he ever arrived at the school, but the work had remained on hold there was a question about where the field should be located, he said. He began making contacts and asking questions, eventually putting things in motion and getting the field completed. He brought his expertise in managing a much larger facility to the school and notes that a key goal for him is to build Raider pride. Field, who was named this years School-Related Employee of the Year for South Sumter Middle School, is working toward adding a sand volleyball area and is also working on renovations to the school observatory. The building itself swivels on a turret, he said, noting that when the bus loop was paved, the power to the building was cut. In recent months hes cleaned the telescope, put in a new engine and oiled and lubed the facility. Everything in there is functional again, he said. Field had been going through yearbooks when he noticed that there had been an observatory team at the school. His drive as a parent adds to his desire to push for improvements and more for the kids. As for the new softball field, It made a huge difference just practicewise, said Coach Kelly McCarthy. Weve been able to practice here at home, and they held three of their seven games at home too. Before they were playing at Kenny Dixon Sports Complex in Bushnell and whenever they did do anything on campus, they had to deal with potholes and the field itself was just as hard as a rock. The ground was so hard, the ball would just bounce, McCarthy said. They also had portables where the current outfield is. McCarthy, a fifth year coach for the school, said the new field has also had an impact on school spirit. The girls softball team has been undefeated for the last several years. Sumter sports BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Garrett Hurst (seated, center) signed on to play ball for Thomas University as he continues his education. Hurst is seated between his mom Melanie and Thomas University coach, John Updike. Other family, friends and Wildwood staff include (back row, left to right) Hursts grandfather Tommy Hurst and his dad Ken Hurst, his grandfather George Shealy and Wildwood Middle High School assistant coach Kevin Lidle, Jarrod Bubby Hurst; (second row, left to right) Hursts grandmother Dee Hurst, his great-grandmother Jackie Hurst, Wildwood Middle High School Coach Kevin Cardona, Hursts grandmother Betty Shealy. Tim and Katie Dietz were also on hand for the signing, but are not pictured. Jake Phillips was one of three Wildwood baseball players to sign on with Thomas University earlier this month. With a long history of the game behind him and a spot on the Georgia university team, Phillips will focus on school, baseball, family and friends as he begins to pursue a degree in education. He plans to become a history teacher. Phillips thinks about possibilities and the future and what that will look like: In a perfect world, me in a Braves or Rays uniform in a few years! Whether that happens or not, I intend to be the best possible history teacher I can. Wildcats starting pitcher and third baseman Garrett Hurst finished up a four-year baseball career with Wildwood this season. The senior graduated Wildwood last week and has already signed on with Thomas University to continue his education and keep playing ball. Coming from a family of athletes, Hurst began playing T-ball at age five in Wildwood Dixie Youth and he credits his dad with his pursuit of the game. He was my coach in Dixie Youth and travel ball, the younger Hurst said of his dad. He grew up playing the sport and by the time he was a teen, was playing world series youth ball. When I was 13, my travel ball team, The Marion Mob went to the USSSA World Series in Atlanta. Opening ceremonies were at Turner Field, where the Braves play and we go to walk out on the field and be announced. During that series, they played teams from around the United States, including Puerto Rico. Out of all those teams, they finished fifth in their division. Hurst is a young man who has set the bar high when it comes to what he expects from himself. His goal is to always excel and do the best I can do for my team. This year, his last in Wildwood Middle High School, Hurst and the team faced new challenges. We were placed in a new division, which meant playing teams they had never faced before. But even with the new challenges, the team and Hurst excelled. This year my ERA was under one for most of the regular season and I threw a no-hitter in one of our district games. He was also selected to play on the All-District team this year. Of his years playing the sport, Hurst said, You can learn many life lessons from baseball. One thing I have learned is that baseball is a game of failure. A good batting average in the majors is .300 that means that for every 10 times a batter comes to the plate, he fails seven out of those 10 times. In baseball, just like life, its not about the failures its about what you take with you to next at-bat. Hurst will continue to play ball as he attends college and for the next few years, his focus will be to play good, to help my team and work hard to finish my education. As he moves forward, he will work on getting stronger and rely on his ability as a hard worker. Hurst is the son of Ken and Melanie Hurst of Oxford and has one younger brother, Jarrod, now 13. The youngest Hurst is also pursuing sports. He was on Wildwoods JV team this year and moved up to varsity. As a student at Thomas, Hurst plans to pursue a teaching degree And become a high school math teacher and baseball coach. Jake Phillips signed on to play ball and complete his education with Thomas University.

Phillips has played catcher, pitcher and first base for the Wildcats in his four-year high school career. But he actually began a baseball career more than a decade earlier. Playing for the past 13 years, he began playing in Lady Lake Little League. He said he heard about league sign-ups during his kindergarten year and asked his parents if he could play. Actually, its them he credits with his pursuit of the game. They were always avid baseball fans, so of course I wanted to be just like them. And my high school coach, Adam Cardona, who has stood beside and supported all of us for these past four years. He has reinforced what we have learned, refined our skills and shown us how important teamwork can be, Phillips said. And just what does he expect from himself? As clich as it sounds, I expect perfection. When thinking back on his playing history, Phillips said, The top three events that stick out in my mind are my first home run, the triple play we turned my sophomore year and my second grand slam I hit this year. When we turned the triple play it was bases loaded no outs. A ground ball was hit to Garrett Hurst at third, he threw the ball to Drew Terry at home getting the runner from third. Then Drew threw the ball to me to get the batter out at first. I threw back to Drew to get the runner trying to score from second. As for the grand slam, We were down 6-2 against Umatilla and the starter walked the batter to load the bases and the coach pulled him to bring in a new pitcher. The first pitch I saw was a fastball, a little low and in, and I hit a towering shot to the right that landed in the parking lot. This year, Phillips batted .429 with a .651 slugging percentage with 28 RBI and both the homeruns he hit as grand slams. He was named to the All District team and named Offensive Player of the Year at Wildwood Middle High School. As for challenges this year, We are just such a small school, we had to use some young and inexperienced players to field a team. These boys are very lucky that they will have extra years of varsity coaching, he said. Phillips says its his arm and consistency that are his strengths and believes that working on all aspects of the game are important to keep play up to par. Phillips is the son of Paula and James Phillips and has two sisters Lauren, who is older and Emma, who is younger. The family lives in Wildwood and Phillips points out, Even though I came here in sixth grade I consider myself to be from Wildwood. And along with his memories and a scholarship, Phillips takes life lessons from his baseball experiences, which he said has taught him the value of hard work and dedication. Raider team captains expressed their gratitude to the Raider community for their support with the helmet program. Supporters were able to have the helmet marked as supporters requested and the following is a list of the supporters who paid an individual purchase price for a helmet. They are: Steven Sylvester, ACE Hardware, Karrie Markland, Drosso, Devin Blough, Mary McLain, Larry Simmons, Valerie Cullum, Swenson Construction, Kelly Rice, Joey Hooten, Matt Ellis, Ferdie Serra, Sanchez, Tom Moffitt, Ed and Rosa Lee Tomberlin, Reba Mazak, Kirnes-Maxwell, South Sumter High School Booster Club, Rick Sherman, Sumter County Farmers Market, T&D Concrete, Jean Callahan, G.S. Hunt, Belinda Maitre, Inman Sherman, Jr., Dr. Mitchell, Mirian Story, Marc Elliott, Gene Elliott, Barn Crew, Jimmy Wade, PA, Kim Carter, Louie Williams, Hunt Surveying. Shawn David Aten plans to major in business as he attends Thomas University in Georgia. But he hasnt closed the door on other possibilities he signed on to play baseball for the university and has four years of school to complete. The Wildwood Middle High School graduate spent the last four years playing both shortstop and pitcher on the high school team but has been honing his skills in the game since before he was in grade school, playing T-ball in the Wildwood Dixie Youth League. I just fell in love with the game, he said of his pursuit of the game. Although just graduating high school and signing on for a ball scholarship, Aten already has a list of achievements and experiences through ball, because of having played at so many different levels, from T-Ball to travel ball. He has been to Amsterdam where he served as an American Sports Ambassador and has played at the Pittsburg Pirates spring training facilities for the Underarmor team. Now he obtains his next level of education, thanks to baseball and his skills on the field. He looks back on his high school baseball career and recalls striking out 16 batters against The Villages in a 3-2 victory at their school as among some of the most memorable. Then there was, My first high school homerun which also came at The Villages field, and finally, the triple play we turned in a game at home. Aten is happy with his performance this past year, playing both sides of the ball. He had the highest batting average of .476 with 25 RBIs and a .521 on base percentage. On the defensive side of the ball I did well playing shortstop and pitching. In pitching he was 8-2 with 73 strikeouts on the season and a win percentage of .857 an all around solid performance. Of challenges for the team this year, Aten said he believes they faced fewer challenges this year than in past. I believe the biggest challenge was the lack of depth on the team. It was the same guys that had to push through the sore arms and fatigue of the season. They only had two starting pitchers, which was definitely a challenge for the team. But I am proud of myself and Garrett Hurst for sticking it out. We ended up pulling out a 16-4 regular season, he said. And what about the future, what should the public be watching for? I think you should look for three players from Wildwood High School making a great impact at Thomas University. As for his strengths in the game, he said he feels its his general knowledge of the game and all the experience I have accommodated over the multiple years of playing. I would also say I have a strong arm and I am a great contact hitter that sees the ball very well. And there are lessons in baseball as well. The most important thing I have learned over the years is that baseball is a game of failure, so dont get down on yourself if something doesnt work out. Get it done the next attempt. Atens goal by high school graduation was to sign a letter of intent to play ball at the next level. Its done. Now he looks forward to playing ball at that higher level, but more importantly, to further his education. I am glad I am given the opportunity to play ball at the next level, but his main focus will be on school and said most important is the education that I will be receiving. Baseball is a temporary thing, education and knowledge is forever. Aten is the son of Tammy and Clinton Smith of Wildwood and has three siblings: half-brother Kevin Aten, stepbrother Matthew Smith and stepsister, Brittney Smith. Showing their appreciation ...Sumter sports Shawn Aten (seated center) is shown shaking hands with Coach Jon Updike of Thomas University. Aten signed on to play baseball for the Georgia school.

Although June 1 is the start of hurricane season, we have already experienced two named storms that formed in May. Could this be an indication that this year may be an active hurricane season? Now is the time to have your disaster plan in place. Do you live in a low lying area? Do you live near a river? Would your property flood if we received heavy rains? Do you live in a mobile home? Have a plan long before a disaster hits. What will you do if you have a pet or multiple pets and you have to evacuate? If it is not safe for you to stay, it is not safe for your pets. If you leave your pets behind, it is likely your pets will not survive. Prepare now! Make sure your pets vaccinations are current. Most pet friendly shelters and boarding facilities will require you to show proof of current vaccinations. Carry your pets vaccination records with you in a waterproof pouch. If you plan to stay in a pet friendly hotel, confirm reservations early. Along with your own supplies, bring with you plenty of food for your pet, water, pet supplies, a crate, and pet medications that your pet may be taking. Make sure your pet is wearing identification. Having your pet micro-chipped is an added way to assure that you are reunited with your pet should you become separated. Have a second plan to fall back on if your first plan cannot be implemented. For example, if the hotel is full, or if there are no vacancies at the boarding facility, you will need to implement your back up plan. Your back up plan may be to drive to Georgia. If you need to evacuate, leave as early as possible so as not to get caught in evacuation traffic jams. When a hurricane is coming your way, call a family member or friend outside the projected impact area to let them know where you plan to be. We must make responsible decisions for our own safety as well as for the safety of our pets. If a hurricane is approaching, take action. Stay calm, implement your disaster plan, and stay safe through our hurricane season.Next week: Disaster Preparedness for Livestock.
