Thursday, June 28, 2012Volume 126 Number 26Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY Inside Going buggy Going buggy It will be several months before it is official, but Lake-Sumter Community College is in the process of changing its name and its designation. The college will be known as Lake-Sumter State College in anticipation of becoming an accredited four-year degree level institution. The colleges District Board of Trustees approved the name change at its June 19 meeting. The new name preserves the strong tradition and outstanding reputation of the college name while reinforcing our ongoing commitment to this community as we expand programs to the four-year degree level to meet the workforce needs of the residents and employers we serve, said trustee chair Margo Odom. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges board of trustees took favorable action at its June 21 meeting on the colleges application seeking accreditation at a higher degree level in order to initiate offering bachelors degree programs. The approval means that the college can continue its plans for January 2013 to launch its first classes in the new bachelor of applied science in organizational management. The most important message we heard from our community and students in the focus groups and surveys was that whatever our new name would be, they wanted to College gets new name Supervisor of Elections Karen Krauss holds one of the voter information cards that was recently mailed to voters providing precinct information. Registered voters need to be on the lookout this week. On Monday, the Sumter County Supervisor of Elections Office began mailing out new voter information cards to every registered voter in the county. Thats more than 71,000 Sumter voters receiving new cards. While the cards arent necessary in order to vote, they do provide some important information that should be reviewed before heading out to vote in the upcoming Aug. 14 primary election and other elections. If you think you already know the location of your polling place, better check the new voter card. Because of substantial changes that were made following the 2010 Census results, many voting districts and polling place locations have changed. Its the reason the new cards are being distributed, said Karen Krauss, supervisor of elections. With so many changes to district lines and precincts, many voters will find that they no longer will be voting at their former and familiar voting polls. The cards are important to review because they will ensure that the elections office has your information accurate and they will display your precinct number. Once you determine your precinct number, you can visit the elections office BOBREICHMAN Editor See NAME, Page 2 Information cards for voters are in the mail BOBREICHMAN Editor New scientific information has led sheriffs investigators to release the composite drawings above concerning the identity of the 1971 murder victim known as Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee. New leads in1971 murder New scientific information may help solve a murder mystery that has haunted Sumter County law enforcement officials for more than 40 years. While sheriffs department investigators have long believed that the 1971 murder victim dubbed Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee was of American Indian descent, new scientific techniques have determined that the woman was actually of Greek descent and probably had been in the United States less than a year before her murder. The new information has sheriffs investigators hopeful that the identity of Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee will be determined. Were cautiously optimistic that the new information will give us some leads to follow up and that well at least be able to identify her, said sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The body of Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee was found on Feb. 19, 1971 under the Lake Panasoffkee Bridge on Interstate 75. Two hitchhikers from Illinois saw the body below them in swamps as they stood on the south end of the bridge in the northbound lane. By the time the body was discovered, it was partially decomposed. Investigators believe she had been murdered at least a week before her body was found. Her age was estimated between 17 and 24 years old. The cause of death was determined to be strangulation. A brown belt was found wrapped around her throat. Her body was clothed but the clothing had deteriorated and was not identifiable until just recently. Her birth date is estimated between 1949 and 1952. She was 5 feet 2, weighing about 110 to 120 pounds with dark brown hair and brown eyes, small to medium build, and probably righthanded. She wore a small, thin, yellow neck chain, a yellow ring with a clear stone on the right hand, a yellow metal watch (17-jewel Baylor) with a repaired metal band on her left wrist. The victim had four lower and two upper teeth missing. Six teeth had silver fillings and there was one porcelain cap in the upper front. There were possibly two pregnancies. She probably suffered repeated ankle sprains and instability of the right ankle, which resulted in orthopedic surgery, utilizing the WatsonJones technique, at about age 15 to 18. A life-size rendering of Little Miss Lake Panasoffke is being created in hopes that the murder victim will be identified. Storm leaves sinkholes, flooding Sumter County residents are left with sinkholes and flooding after Tropical Storm Debby breezed up the Gulf of Mexico and across Central Florida this week. Heavy rains began on Sunday, with two to four inches falling in different areas of the county. By Monday, creeping water had moved toward homes in low lying areas and sinkholes had opened up in two Sumter communities. David Casto, Sumter Countys Comprehensive Emergency Management director, said one small sinkhole, about three feet had opened in Lake Panasoffkee, while four larger holes had opened in The Villages. The average hole size was between 10 feet and 20 feet, and two of the five were threats to homes. By Tuesday, another two sinkholes had opened in the development bringing the county total to seven. Casto said one of the six sinkholes was on a golf course and he believes another was due to some type of erosion, such as a broken pipe. Flooding concerns included the Lake Panasoffkee area, Croom-A-Coochee and a small community in Bushnell, off S.R. 48. The Lake Panasoffkee area received a lot of water, he said, noting that there are also some poor drainage areas in the community. One home actually had several inches of water intrusion, he said. As for the countys road and bridge department, they spent Sunday night monitoring the water situation, working with engineers to see if they could reroute some of the water. Emergency Management did a life safety check to make sure residents were okay. Earlier in the week, a flood warning had been issued for the Withlacoochee River in Croom-A-Coochee, but that was cancelled when rainfall levels were lower than expected on Monday and Tuesday, according to NOAA meteorologist Tom Dougherty. But even with the river threat cancelled, resiBOBREICHMAN Editor See LEADS, Page 2 See VOTERS, Page 2 BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer See STORM, Page 3 By Tuesday, another two sinkholes had opened in the development bringing the county total to seven.

Since her body was discovered, stacks of folders, videotapes, X-rays and other evidence has been collected in the murder case. Throughout the decades, substantial attempts have been made to identify the woman and to find the person responsible for her murder. Her murder was featured in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries back in the early 1990s when Jamie Adams was sheriff. Adams was determined to solve the case. During his term in office, in another attempt to identify the woman, her remains were exhumed in 1986 from the Oak Grove Cemetery, in Wildwood, where she was buried. Adams called in a forensic anthropologist to provide reconstructive facial drawings of what she looked like at the time of her death and as a child. The specialist was also used to determine her height and weight all in attempt to identify the mysterious woman. Unfortunately, none of the attempts to identify her were successful. But with recent assistance from the anthropology department at the University of South Florida in Tampa and the geological sciences department at the University of Florida, a new composite drawing was created and more specific information about the murder victim was discovered from hair and teeth samples. Examiners were even able to determine that the woman was probably from the small town of Lavrion, about 60 miles southeast of Athens, Greece, Hofecker said. They determined the location from the high level of lead that was found in her teeth. The lead is associated with mining operations in the region. Examiners also were able to better identify the clothing she had on (plaid green pants, a matching solid green shirt and a shawl with a green and white print) and the model of the watch she was wearing. As a starting point in an attempt to identify her, the sheriffs office is preparing to mail out about 6,000 flyers to residents and businesses in the Tarpon Springs area, Hofecker said. Based on the time of her death, investigator suspect the victim may have been in that community during the annual Epiphany celebration held on Jan. 6. Weve been in contact with representatives of the Greek Orthodox Church there and the Tarpon Springs Police Department for support, he said. Well start there and then move out. To solve this case and be able to return her to her loved ones would be the crme de la crme, Hofecker said.PAGE2 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE28, 2012 000AYHS www.equineop.com www. prostheticsresearch.com QUALITY CARE BY CERTIFIED AND LICENSED PROFESSIONALS FOR PEOPLE AND ANIMALS Prosthetics Orthotics Canes Walkers Crutches Compression Hose Braces Etc. 720 E Southland Ave, Bushnell, FL 33513 352-793-4477 PROSTHETICS RESEARCH SPECIALISTS PROSTHETICS PROSTHETICS and Equine Orthotics & Prosthetics 000BT26 S ERVING L AKE & S UMTER C OUNTIES ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ scholarships, mentors & hope ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ *School Based Mentoring *No Tutoring Required *3 Times Per Month for 30 minutes For more information please call (352) 787-6576 or visit our website at www.takestockinchildren.org Change a Life Be a Mentor Two Old Tractors Looking For Work Small Garden Special High Speed Bush Hog & Grading Local References & Old Prices Call Dave @ 352-568-8185 Please Leave Message 000BTOE C ARES C ARES C ENTER C ENTER Surgery Day Tues., Thurs. & Fri. 8:00-4:30 PM (By Appointment) A non-profit organization WELLNESS CLINIC (352-793-1523) CHECK-UPS ON YOUR PET LOW COST SPAY-NEUTER CLINIC (352) 568-9994 Shot Clinic Tues., Thurs. & Fri. 10:00 AM :00 PM ( No Appointment Necessary) Please Spay o r Neuter Your Pet!

Since the last election, the number of polling places have been consolidated from 46 down to 24, Krauss said. Once voters determine where their polling place is, it would be a good idea to go out before voting day and find their voting place so they know where it is ahead of voting time, she said. Dont wait until Election Day to find it. Krauss also suggests that voters be cautious when dealing with their mail. Because its election season, the mailed information from the elections office could be mistaken for other political material. Voters who havent received a card in two weeks should let us know, she said. Well either resend it or see what the problem is. For additional information, call the elections office at 569-1540.

dents had to deal with local street flooding and winds between 30 and 40 miles per hour. The storm track changed throughout the week, eventually curling into Central Florida and making landfall near the Gainesville/Suwannee River area, while weather warnings that ranged from tornado and flood warnings, to high wind advisories played out for days. When the landfall began and the weather began to alternate between cloudy and gusty and sunny, Casto said, I think the worst is over. But he did have a suggestion for local residents, urging them to gather information on storms and other disasters now. He said his department received come calls late on Sunday night from people Wanting to know the difference between watches and warnings. Theyre not able to respond to those type questions when dealing with damage and assisting people in disaster situations. He urges residents to take the time now, when there is no threat, to learn the terminology. He said the information can be found on their website or at floridadisaster.org He also urges residents to obtain and use a weather radio. Sumter Electric spokesman Barry Bowman said SECO faired pretty well, through the storm. They had a total of 7,000 customers in Sumterville and The Villages without power at some point. Their average restoration time was just over an hour and a half. Bowman said they dealt with far fewer problems than in the past, attributing the change to an aggressive tree trimming program that has been under way for the past five years. As for Progress Energy, 49 of their 7,000 customers lost power at some point during the storm. Wednesday, June 20Reginald Stone, 54, Wildwood, arrested for battery. Bond at $1,000.

PAGE4 SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE28, 2012 Know where youre going to vote Dont be disappointedly surprised when you visit your good old voting poll later this year. It just may not be there. As a matter of fact, chances are very good that it wont be there. With all the redistricting and precinct changes that have happened during the past two years, its very likely that your location for voting has been changed. Since the last major election, the polls have been consolidated by the Supervisor of Elections Office. More than half of the voting locations have been eliminated. And with state and local redistricting, precincts have also changed. All voters in Sumter County, more than 71,000 of them, will shortly be receiving new voter information cards in the mail. The cards will provide voters with the information they need about changes to their precincts and polling locations. Supervisor of Elections Karen Krauss has made a very good suggestion. She suggests that voters make sure they visit their polling location early to ensure that they know the exact location. Election Day could become very confusing if voters havent checked and arent aware of their new voting locations. Sumter County typically has very high voter turnout for elections. In the past, the county has done an exemplary job of collecting and compiling voting information. Hopefully, these new voter information cards will be used and help avoid potential confusion at the polls. Governor Scott and the Legislature making sure our votes countGovernor Scott and the Florida Legislature are working diligently to assure that everyone of our votes count. By seeking to purge non citizens from the roles, legitimate votes will not be diluted by those who have no legal right to decide what is best for the citizens of Florida. Recent polls indicate wide spread bipartisan support for the Governors position. Sixty percent of those polled indicated they favored his action even though it is being opposed by Attorney General Holder and the Obama Administration. In addition, the almost epidemic fraudulent voter registration activity alleged to have been conducted by ACORN and its progeny in the 2008 election caused Florida and many other states to revamp their third party voters registration programs. Such action was aimed at protecting your vote and making sure it will not be offset by fraudulent ones. Early voting and absentee voting are designed to eliminate barriers to voting and to provide greater accessibility to the polls. Early voting for the Aug. 14 Primary Election is from Aug. 4 through and including Aug. 11 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. In the General Election early voting is from Oct. 27 through and including Nov. 3 from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. The Governor and the Florida Legislature have done their part to make sure our votes count. Now it is up to you! Your opinion will not be counted unless you exercise your right as a citizen to vote in the Aug. 14 Primary Election and the Nov. 6 General Election. Richard L. Cole, Jr. The VillagesThank youI would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for making the 2012 SCARC, Inc. Benefit Golf Tournament a great success.

For more information about SCARC, Inc., for photos of the golf tournament, please visit the website at www.scarcinc.com. Sincerely, Marsha Woodard Perkins Executive DirectorTo all who live in Sumter County:Too often we do not appreciate something until it is gone. We have heard this saying many times. Last fall, a former student and neighbor contacted me about Dade Battlefield State Park being on a list of parks that the state may close down due to budget cuts. I realized I need to practice what I always preached. If everyone did what they could do, no one has to do it all! I thought, well I could attend the awesome craft classes. (I actually learned that I could make pine needle baskets. Well, actually, I have only made it to pine needle coasters but I am still working on it.) I could volunteer with the summer kids camp in a variety of ways. I could support Art in the Park and other events, like the upcoming Patriotic Family Fun Day July 6. Finally, I could ask all of you to join me as a Friend of Dade Battlefield. Our next very short meeting to discuss how we can all participate in making sure our beloved Dade Park is not closed and to give input is Tuesday, July 10 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the lodge. We need those of you who remember the history of Dade Battlefield and can share this local history. For example, how was Dade Battlefield used during WWII? Who once lived near the park and made pine needle crafts? We need those of you who want to make sure our park will never be placed on a list to be closed again! By everyone helping a little, we can accomplish much! Hope to see you there! Karen Cloud Retired Sumter County Teacher and Friend of Dade Battlefield State Park A Fortnight for Freedom The workers at St. Vincent DePaul are answering a call by the Bishops of the United States to host a Fortnight for Freedom that started last week on Wednesday, July 21 and carry through to Wednesday July 4. The church is setting it aside as a special time of intensified prayer for religious freedom and the protection of conscience rights a series of special services and continued prayer. According to event coordinators at St. Vincent DePaul, the Fortnight for Freedom is in response to the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the new health care reform law). They believe the mandate is basically redefining the First Amendment. From the national level, the bishops have requested an outline of prayer and general intercession of prayers each day for mass, according to St. Vincent DePauls Father Peter Sagorski. They will be praying that leaders in Congress will listen to Gods inspiration, he said, explaining that the church believes the basic issue is religious freedom. According to a release from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the mandate requires almost all private health plans to cover contraception and sterilization as preventive services for women and forces individuals and groups with religious or moral objections to purchase and provide such coverage if they are to receive or provide health coverage at all. The release goes on to say that the mandate poses an unprecedented threat to individual and institutional religious freedom and that the rule does include a religious exemption, but the church considers it too narrow. The release explained, It covers only a religious employer that has the inculcation of religious values as its purpose, primarily employs and serves persons who share its religious tenets, and is a church organization under two narrow provisions of the tax code. A great many religious organizations including Catholic colleges and universities, as well as hospitals and charitable institutions that serve the public will be ineligible. Individuals and religiously affiliated health insurers will not qualify for the exemption. The new rule would force insurance plans to cover all Food and Drug Administration approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for all women with reproductive capacity. Never before has the federal government required private health plans to include such coverage. The FDA-approved emergency contraception. Its important to note that religious freedom is our first civil freedom its first in the Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution, said Dan Miller of St. Vincent DePaul. If the Catholic facilities providing medical care were forced o shut down, a very large part of the population will be without health care, he said. According to the Catholic Health Association of the U.S., Catholic hospitals are 12.6 percent of all the hospitals in the nation. They account for 15.6 percent of all admissions in hospitals, 14.5 percent of all hospital expenses, 16.6 percent of Medicare admissions and 13.6 percent of all Medicaid admissions and finally, 33 percent of all Catholic hospitals are located in rural areas where patients have few other options for care. I think all life should be respected. From conception to natural death, we have to respect all life, said Sagorski, explaining that in his opinion he does not believe the mandate does that. The church is also providing the deadline date for comments before final rule as September 30, asking people to pray and to contact political representatives. Prayer is very important, said Miller. Their event will include a 7 p.m. service on Monday July 2 with Ray Noble speaking on the United States Constitution and religious freedom in the nation. On Thursday, July 4, services will begin at 9 a.m. with Eucharist Adoration and hourly prayer for military forces. The hourly prayers will be led by members from different branches of the military, starting with the United States Army at 10 a.m. and ending with the United States Coast Guard at 2 p.m. Veterans and those still on active duty are invited to attend and urged to come in uniform. The church is located at 5323 E. C.R. 462 in Wildwood. For more information, contact them at 352330-0028.

South Sumter High School Raider graduate and brand new Florida Gator Keanu Neal shown throwing out the first pitch for one of the Bushnell tournament games. Another Sumter team is heading off to play in the state championships after an undefeated run through the district for the championship title. The Bushnell Dixie Youth League Majors finished up the final round in the district tournament on Friday night, winning 16-0 against Spring Hill American. Cornelius Patterson pitched a perfect game, said Coach Mike Eastburn. Jake Adams hit a grand slam in the bottom of the fourth. While those were just a couple of the highlights for play during the season, Eastburn said its the team that is the players strength. The team effort, is key for them and the fact that many of the kids have been playing together for a number of years. As a matter of fact, several of the players on the team were part of the AAA World Series team I n recent years. As for the future, Eastburn said, Theres a lot more to come. Their first game in state championship is on Saturday, July 14 in Hernando. Theyve been working real hard. That and the fact that Papa Harry keeps em straight, Eastburn said with a laugh of Coach Harry Lake.

Sometimes a day starts out bad and things can look pretty grim. That is how the day started out for a little bulldog puppy found injured in a ditch in Webster. Unable to move and in pain, the puppy lay there awaiting her fate. But with a change of luck, fate smiled down on the puppy when two good Samaritans stopped to help. While driving, Ray and Cyn Landry happened to see a little animal off the side of a road, struggling to lift its head. Stopping to see if there was a problem, they were shocked to find a beautiful puppy lying in a ditch, hot and bleeding. The puppy could barely move and was lying on an ant hill and barb wire fencing. Staying with the puppy and never leaving her side, the Landrys called Sumter County Animal Services for assistance. When Animal Control Officer Anthony Stravino arrived, he saw a collar on the puppy, and called in to report the injury to Kennel Coordinator Tammy Belancin. Belacin explains that if an animal is found injured and wearing a collar, Animal Services will take the animal to a veterinarian to be evaluated. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Landry continued to call Animal Services to check on the puppys condition and to let them know they wanted to adopt her. We knew the minute we saw her we wanted to take her home with us, but were afraid to move her because of her injuries. Dr. Yates evaluation concluded that the puppy had a broken leg. I knew that the Landrys were serious about adopting this puppy, states Belancin, because they called throughout the day to check on her condition. Knowing that the puppys future medical needs would be taken care of by the Landrys, Belancin was sure the adoption would be a success. After the leg was set, the puppy was brought back to the Animal Services facility, where Belacin, Stravino, and the other Animal Service associates monitored and helped in the care of the injured puppys recovery. Anxious to adopt their new puppy, the Landrys were up early the next day, waiting at the Animal Services facility for it to open. Now safe and cared for in her new home, the little puppy has been named Thumper, because she thumps around the house in her cast laughs Mrs. Landry. We are told that Thumper is doing great and is a very sweet little girl. A little puppys determination and will to survive, along with two good Samaritans who cared enough to stop and help, and the efforts put forth by dedicated Animal Services employees Tammy Belancin and Anthony Stravino to help save a life, has turned a grim day in the life of a little puppy into a very happy ending. Because of all of these caring people, little Thumper has a bright and happy future with a family that will care for her injuries, and nurture and love her.

The college will be known as Lake-Sumter State College in anticipation of becoming an accredited four-year degree level institution. The colleges District Board of Trustees approved the name change at its June 19 meeting. The new name preserves the strong tradition and outstanding reputation of the college name while reinforcing our ongoing commitment to this community as we expand programs to the four-year degree level to meet the workforce needs of the residents and employers we serve, said trustee chair Margo Odom. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges board of trustees took favorable action at its June 21 meeting on the colleges application seeking accreditation at a higher degree level in order to initiate offering bachelors degree programs. The approval means that the college can continue its plans for January 2013 to launch its first classes in the new bachelor of applied science in organizational management. The most important message we heard from our community and students in the focus groups and surveys was that whatever our new name would be, they wanted to College gets new name Supervisor of Elections Karen Krauss holds one of the voter information cards that was recently mailed to voters providing precinct information. Registered voters need to be on the lookout this week. On Monday, the Sumter County Supervisor of Elections Office began mailing out new voter information cards to every registered voter in the county. Thats more than 71,000 Sumter voters receiving new cards. While the cards arent necessary in order to vote, they do provide some important information that should be reviewed before heading out to vote in the upcoming Aug. 14 primary election and other elections. If you think you already know the location of your polling place, better check the new voter card. Because of substantial changes that were made following the 2010 Census results, many voting districts and polling place locations have changed. Its the reason the new cards are being distributed, said Karen Krauss, supervisor of elections. With so many changes to district lines and precincts, many voters will find that they no longer will be voting at their former and familiar voting polls. The cards are important to review because they will ensure that the elections office has your information accurate and they will display your precinct number. Once you determine your precinct number, you can visit the elections office B OB R EICHMAN Editor See NAME Page 2 Information cards for voters are in the mail B OB R EICHMAN Editor New scientific information has led sheriffs investigators to release the composite drawings above concerning the identity of the 1971 murder victim known as Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee. New leads in1971 murder New scientific information may help solve a murder mystery that has haunted Sumter County law enforcement officials for more than 40 years. While sheriffs department investigators have long believed that the 1971 murder victim dubbed Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee was of American Indian descent, new scientific techniques have determined that the woman was actually of Greek descent and probably had been in the United States less than a year before her murder. The new information has sheriffs investigators hopeful that the identity of Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee will be determined. Were cautiously optimistic that the new information will give us some leads to follow up and that well at least be able to identify her, said sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The body of Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee was found on Feb. 19, 1971 under the Lake Panasoffkee Bridge on Interstate 75. Two hitchhikers from Illinois saw the body below them in swamps as they stood on the south end of the bridge in the northbound lane. By the time the body was discovered, it was partially decomposed. Investigators believe she had been murdered at least a week before her body was found. Her age was estimated between 17 and 24 years old. The cause of death was determined to be strangulation. A brown belt was found wrapped around her throat. Her body was clothed but the clothing had deteriorated and was not identifiable until just recently. Her birth date is estimated between 1949 and 1952. She was 5 feet 2, weighing about 110 to 120 pounds with dark brown hair and brown eyes, small to medium build, and probably righthanded. She wore a small, thin, yellow neck chain, a yellow ring with a clear stone on the right hand, a yellow metal watch (17-jewel Baylor) with a repaired metal band on her left wrist. The victim had four lower and two upper teeth missing. Six teeth had silver fillings and there was one porcelain cap in the upper front. There were possibly two pregnancies. She probably suffered repeated ankle sprains and instability of the right ankle, which resulted in orthopedic surgery, utilizing the WatsonJones technique, at about age 15 to 18. A life-size rendering of Little Miss Lake Panasoffke is being created in hopes that the murder victim will be identified. Storm leaves sinkholes, flooding Sumter County residents are left with sinkholes and flooding after Tropical Storm Debby breezed up the Gulf of Mexico and across Central Florida this week. Heavy rains began on Sunday, with two to four inches falling in different areas of the county. By Monday, creeping water had moved toward homes in low lying areas and sinkholes had opened up in two Sumter communities. David Casto, Sumter Countys Comprehensive Emergency Management director, said one small sinkhole, about three feet had opened in Lake Panasoffkee, while four larger holes had opened in The Villages. The average hole size was between 10 feet and 20 feet, and two of the five were threats to homes. By Tuesday, another two sinkholes had opened in the development bringing the county total to seven. Casto said one of the six sinkholes was on a golf course and he believes another was due to some type of erosion, such as a broken pipe. Flooding concerns included the Lake Panasoffkee area, Croom-A-Coochee and a small community in Bushnell, off S.R. 48. The Lake Panasoffkee area received a lot of water, he said, noting that there are also some poor drainage areas in the community. One home actually had several inches of water intrusion, he said. As for the countys road and bridge department, they spent Sunday night monitoring the water situation, working with engineers to see if they could reroute some of the water. Emergency Management did a life safety check to make sure residents were okay. Earlier in the week, a flood warning had been issued for the Withlacoochee River in Croom-A-Coochee, but that was cancelled when rainfall levels were lower than expected on Monday and Tuesday, according to NOAA meteorologist Tom Dougherty. But even with the river threat cancelled, resiB OB R EICHMAN Editor See LEADS Page 2 See VOTERS Page 2 B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer See STORM Page 3 By Tuesday, another two sinkholes had opened in the development bringing the county total to seven.

Since her body was discovered, stacks of folders, videotapes, X-rays and other evidence has been collected in the murder case. Throughout the decades, substantial attempts have been made to identify the woman and to find the person responsible for her murder. Her murder was featured in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries back in the early 1990s when Jamie Adams was sheriff. Adams was determined to solve the case. During his term in office, in another attempt to identify the woman, her remains were exhumed in 1986 from the Oak Grove Cemetery, in Wildwood, where she was buried. Adams called in a forensic anthropologist to provide reconstructive facial drawings of what she looked like at the time of her death and as a child. The specialist was also used to determine her height and weight all in attempt to identify the mysterious woman. Unfortunately, none of the attempts to identify her were successful. But with recent assistance from the anthropology department at the University of South Florida in Tampa and the geological sciences department at the University of Florida, a new composite drawing was created and more specific information about the murder victim was discovered from hair and teeth samples. Examiners were even able to determine that the woman was probably from the small town of Lavrion, about 60 miles southeast of Athens, Greece, Hofecker said. They determined the location from the high level of lead that was found in her teeth. The lead is associated with mining operations in the region. Examiners also were able to better identify the clothing she had on (plaid green pants, a matching solid green shirt and a shawl with a green and white print) and the model of the watch she was wearing. As a starting point in an attempt to identify her, the sheriffs office is preparing to mail out about 6,000 flyers to residents and businesses in the Tarpon Springs area, Hofecker said. Based on the time of her death, investigator suspect the victim may have been in that community during the annual Epiphany celebration held on Jan. 6.

Since the last election, the number of polling places have been consolidated from 46 down to 24, Krauss said. Once voters determine where their polling place is, it would be a good idea to go out before voting day and find their voting place so they know where it is ahead of voting time, she said. Dont wait until Election Day to find it. Krauss also suggests that voters be cautious when dealing with their mail. Because its election season, the mailed information from the elections office could be mistaken for other political material. Voters who havent received a card in two weeks should let us know, she said. Well either resend it or see what the problem is. For additional information, call the elections office at 569-1540.

dents had to deal with local street flooding and winds between 30 and 40 miles per hour. The storm track changed throughout the week, eventually curling into Central Florida and making landfall near the Gainesville/Suwannee River area, while weather warnings that ranged from tornado and flood warnings, to high wind advisories played out for days. When the landfall began and the weather began to alternate between cloudy and gusty and sunny, Casto said, I think the worst is over. But he did have a suggestion for local residents, urging them to gather information on storms and other disasters now. He said his department received come calls late on Sunday night from people Wanting to know the difference between watches and warnings. Theyre not able to respond to those type questions when dealing with damage and assisting people in disaster situations. He urges residents to take the time now, when there is no threat, to learn the terminology. He said the information can be found on their website or at floridadisaster.org He also urges residents to obtain and use a weather radio. Sumter Electric spokesman Barry Bowman said SECO faired pretty well, through the storm. They had a total of 7,000 customers in Sumterville and The Villages without power at some point. Their average restoration time was just over an hour and a half. Bowman said they dealt with far fewer problems than in the past, attributing the change to an aggressive tree trimming program that has been under way for the past five years. As for Progress Energy, 49 of their 7,000 customers lost power at some point during the storm. Wednesday, June 20Reginald Stone, 54, Wildwood, arrested for battery. Bond at $1,000.

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J UNE 28, 2012 Know where youre going to vote D ont be disappointedly surprised when you visit your good old voting poll later this year. It just may not be there. As a matter of fact, chances are very good that it wont be there. With all the redistricting and precinct changes that have happened during the past two years, its very likely that your location for voting has been changed. Since the last major election, the polls have been consolidated by the Supervisor of Elections Office. More than half of the voting locations have been eliminated. And with state and local redistricting, precincts have also changed. All voters in Sumter County, more than 71,000 of them, will shortly be receiving new voter information cards in the mail. The cards will provide voters with the information they need about changes to their precincts and polling locations. Supervisor of Elections Karen Krauss has made a very good suggestion. She suggests that voters make sure they visit their polling location early to ensure that they know the exact location. Election Day could become very confusing if voters havent checked and arent aware of their new voting locations. Sumter County typically has very high voter turnout for elections. In the past, the county has done an exemplary job of collecting and compiling voting information. Hopefully, these new voter information cards will be used and help avoid potential confusion at the polls. Governor Scott and the Legislature making sure our votes count Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature are working diligently to assure that everyone of our votes count. By seeking to purge non citizens from the roles, legitimate votes will not be diluted by those who have no legal right to decide what is best for the citizens of Florida. Recent polls indicate wide spread bipartisan support for the Governors position. Sixty percent of those polled indicated they favored his action even though it is being opposed by Attorney General Holder and the Obama Administration. In addition, the almost epidemic fraudulent voter registration activity alleged to have been conducted by ACORN and its progeny in the 2008 election caused Florida and many other states to revamp their third party voters registration programs. Such action was aimed at protecting your vote and making sure it will not be offset by fraudulent ones. Early voting and absentee voting are designed to eliminate barriers to voting and to provide greater accessibility to the polls. Early voting for the Aug. 14 Primary Election is from Aug. 4 through and including Aug. 11 from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. In the General Election early voting is from Oct. 27 through and including Nov. 3 from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. The Governor and the Florida Legislature have done their part to make sure our votes count. Now it is up to you! Your opinion will not be counted unless you exercise your right as a citizen to vote in the Aug. 14 Primary Election and the Nov. 6 General Election. Richard L. Cole, Jr. The VillagesThank you I would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for making the 2012 SCARC, Inc. Benefit Golf Tournament a great success.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and everyone associated with SCARC, Inc. thank you for your support of SCARC, Inc. For more information about SCARC, Inc., for photos of the golf tournament, please visit the website at www.scarcinc.com. Sincerely, Marsha Woodard Perkins Executive DirectorTo all who live in Sumter County: Too often we do not appreciate something until it is gone. We have heard this saying many times. Last fall, a former student and neighbor contacted me about Dade Battlefield State Park being on a list of parks that the state may close down due to budget cuts. I realized I need to practice what I always preached. If everyone did what they could do, no one has to do it all! I thought, well I could attend the awesome craft classes. (I actually learned that I could make pine needle baskets. Well, actually, I have only made it to pine needle coasters but I am still working on it.) I could volunteer with the summer kids camp in a variety of ways. I could support Art in the Park and other events, like the upcoming Patriotic Family Fun Day July 6. Finally, I could ask all of you to join me as a Friend of Dade Battlefield. Our next very short meeting to discuss how we can all participate in making sure our beloved Dade Park is not closed and to give input is Tuesday, July 10 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the lodge. We need those of you who remember the history of Dade Battlefield and can share this local history. For example, how was Dade Battlefield used during WWII? Who once lived near the park and made pine needle crafts? We need those of you who want to make sure our park will never be placed on a list to be closed again! By everyone helping a little, we can accomplish much! Hope to see you there! Karen Cloud Retired Sumter County Teacher and Friend of Dade Battlefield State Park A Fortnight for Freedom The workers at St. Vincent DePaul are answering a call by the Bishops of the United States to host a Fortnight for Freedom that started last week on Wednesday, July 21 and carry through to Wednesday July 4. The church is setting it aside as a special time of intensified prayer for religious freedom and the protection of conscience rights a series of special services and continued prayer. According to event coordinators at St. Vincent DePaul, the Fortnight for Freedom is in response to the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the new health care reform law). They believe the mandate is basically redefining the First Amendment. From the national level, the bishops have requested an outline of prayer and general intercession of prayers each day for mass, according to St. Vincent DePauls Father Peter Sagorski. They will be praying that leaders in Congress will listen to Gods inspiration, he said, explaining that the church believes the basic issue is religious freedom. According to a release from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the mandate requires almost all private health plans to cover contraception and sterilization as preventive services for women and forces individuals and groups with religious or moral objections to purchase and provide such coverage if they are to receive or provide health coverage at all. The release goes on to say that the mandate poses an unprecedented threat to individual and institutional religious freedom and that the rule does include a religious exemption, but the church considers it too narrow. The release explained, It covers only a religious employer that has the inculcation of religious values as its purpose, primarily employs and serves persons who share its religious tenets, and is a church organization under two narrow provisions of the tax code. A great many religious organizations including Catholic colleges and universities, as well as hospitals and charitable institutions that serve the public will be ineligible. Individuals and religiously affiliated health insurers will not qualify for the exemption. The new rule would force insurance plans to cover all Food and Drug Administration approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling for all women with reproductive capacity. Never before has the federal government required private health plans to include such coverage. The FDA-approved emergency contraception Its important to note that religious freedom is our first civil freedom its first in the Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution, said Dan Miller of St. Vincent DePaul. If the Catholic facilities providing medical care were forced o shut down, a very large part of the population will be without health care, he said. According to the Catholic Health Association of the U.S., Catholic hospitals are 12.6 percent of all the hospitals in the nation. They account for 15.6 percent of all admissions in hospitals, 14.5 percent of all hospital expenses, 16.6 percent of Medicare admissions and 13.6 percent of all Medicaid admissions and finally, 33 percent of all Catholic hospitals are located in rural areas where patients have few other options for care. I think all life should be respected. From conception to natural death, we have to respect all life, said Sagorski, explaining that in his opinion he does not believe the mandate does that. The church is also providing the deadline date for comments before final rule as September 30, asking people to pray and to contact political representatives. Prayer is very important, said Miller. Their event will include a 7 p.m. service on Monday July 2 with Ray Noble speaking on the United States Constitution and religious freedom in the nation. On Thursday, July 4, services will begin at 9 a.m. with Eucharist Adoration and hourly prayer for military forces. The hourly prayers will be led by members from different branches of the military, starting with the United States Army at 10 a.m. and ending with the United States Coast Guard at 2 p.m. Veterans and those still on active duty are invited to attend and urged to come in uniform. The church is located at 5323 E. C.R. 462 in Wildwood. For more information, contact them at 352330-0028.

South Sumter High School Raider graduate and brand new Florida Gator Keanu Neal shown throwing out the first pitch for one of the Bushnell tournament games. A nother Sumter team is heading off to play in the state championships after an undefeated run through the district for the championship title. The Bushnell Dixie Youth League Majors finished up the final round in the district tournament on Friday night, winning 16-0 against Spring Hill American. Cornelius Patterson pitched a perfect game, said Coach Mike Eastburn. Jake Adams hit a grand slam in the bottom of the fourth. While those were just a couple of the highlights for play during the season, Eastburn said its the team that is the players strength. The team effort, is key for them and the fact that many of the kids have been playing together for a number of years. As a matter of fact, several of the players on the team were part of the AAA World Series team I n recent years. As for the future, Eastburn said, Theres a lot more to come. Their first game in state championship is on Saturday, July 14 in Hernando. Theyve been working real hard. That and the fact that Papa Harry keeps em straight, Eastburn said with a laugh of Coach Harry Lake. While he wants the win, Eastburn said his biggest desire for the players is that they be successful first in school and then in sports. Pictured above, Matthew Tadlock is safe at second base.

S ometimes a day starts out bad and things can look pretty grim. That is how the day started out for a little bulldog puppy found injured in a ditch in Webster. Unable to move and in pain, the puppy lay there awaiting her fate. But with a change of luck, fate smiled down on the puppy when two good Samaritans stopped to help. While driving, Ray and Cyn Landry happened to see a little animal off the side of a road, struggling to lift its head. Stopping to see if there was a problem, they were shocked to find a beautiful puppy lying in a ditch, hot and bleeding. The puppy could barely move and was lying on an ant hill and barb wire fencing. Staying with the puppy and never leaving her side, the Landrys called Sumter County Animal Services for assistance. When Animal Control Officer Anthony Stravino arrived, he saw a collar on the puppy, and called in to report the injury to Kennel Coordinator Tammy Belancin. Belacin explains that if an animal is found injured and wearing a collar, Animal Services will take the animal to a veterinarian to be evaluated. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Landry continued to call Animal Services to check on the puppys condition and to let them know they wanted to adopt her. We knew the minute we saw her we wanted to take her home with us, but were afraid to move her because of her injuries. Dr. Yates evaluation concluded that the puppy had a broken leg. I knew that the Landrys were serious about adopting this puppy, states Belancin, because they called throughout the day to check on her condition. Knowing that the puppys future medical needs would be taken care of by the Landrys, Belancin was sure the adoption would be a success. After the leg was set, the puppy was brought back to the Animal Services facility, where Belacin, Stravino, and the other Animal Service associates monitored and helped in the care of the injured puppys recovery. Anxious to adopt their new puppy, the Landrys were up early the next day, waiting at the Animal Services facility for it to open. Now safe and cared for in her new home, the little puppy has been named Thumper, because she thumps around the house in her cast laughs Mrs. Landry. We are told that Thumper is doing great and is a very sweet little girl. A little puppys determination and will to survive, along with two good Samaritans who cared enough to stop and help, and the efforts put forth by dedicated Animal Services employees Tammy Belancin and Anthony Stravino to help save a life, has turned a grim day in the life of a little puppy into a very happy ending. Because of all of these caring people, little Thumper has a bright and happy future with a family that will care for her injuries, and nurture and love her.

Power and Associates 2012 Full Service Inve stor Satisfaction Study. The study measures overall investor satisfaction with full service investment firms based on seven f actors: investment advisor, investment performance, account information, account offerings, commissions and fees, website and problem resolution. Edward Jones places its branch offices in the communities where its clients long-term individual i nvestors live and work. This practice, which enables its branch teams to provide personalized service to all clien ts, has helped the firm attain the highest score in the Investment Advisor category of the study. We are gratified that our clients find it convenient to work with us on their long-term financial g oals, David Caraway said. We enjoy working one-on-one with our clients and believe that builds a collaborative relationship.

Edward Jones ranked highest in investor satisfaction by J.D. Power and Associates in 2010 and 2009, from 2005 through 2007, and in a tie in 2002, when the study began.
