Thursday, July 5, 2012Volume 126 Number 27Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.com For more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comT IMES QUICK CLICK SUMTER COUNTY Inside Monster truck Monster truck County commissioners did not respond last week to some harsh criticism leveled at county representatives regarding problems at the recent annual Royal Homecoming 2012. Both Beverly Steele, founder of Young Performing Artists (YPAs) and homecoming organizer and event assistant Cliff Hughes voiced frustration with county officials and their representatives for providing no support for the annual community event or reportedly providing information that ended up damaging the event. Event organizers knew that this years homecoming would require strong coordination with county officials because of the boards negative comments about last years event. Commissioners were critical of the homecoming because it ended up costing the county a substantial amount of money for clean up, traffic control and law enforcement. Commissioners estimated that the event cost taxpayers thousands of dollars in support services from the county. In particular, commissioners said the traffic snarl that happened and the limited size of Royal Park and the community center contributed to commissioners voting in May not to approve the 2012 event at the county location. Their disapproval sent organizers scurrying to Royal event plagued by problems D ade Battlefield is hosting a Patriotic Family Fun Day set to begin at the 6th? Set for Friday, July 6, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. the event is planned an old fashioned family day of fun to celebrate the nations Independence Day and the birthday of Dade Park!

B OB R EICHMAN Editor Celebrate July 4th holiday on the 6th at Dade Park Photos by CHRIS WELCHERCalled to honor at the annual Linden Cemetery Picnic last weeked were those attendees who have reached the age of 75 years and older. Lingering in Linden Blue skies and beautiful weather greeted patrons of the 115th Annual Linden Cemetery Picnic on Saturday. The Linden Cemetery Association (LCA) sponsors the event each year. The picnic is a traditional community fundraiser for the upkeep and maintenance of the cemetery that has grown into one of the largest community events in southern Sumter County. The picnic raises the funds by selling dinners, raffle tickets, lemonade, sno-cones, and auctioning off cakes, pies, and other donated items. Patrons could also purchase a book regarding the history of The Linden Cemetery, Ties that Bind I and II, or a spot on the Wall of Memory. The Wall of Memory is a wall where a name can be placed of a loved one buried in other places in order to be remembered here. There were hundreds of people in attendance. The crowd included community leaders, community members, family members of the departed, and friends. Purcell Funeral home representatives attended to show their support and even purchased a cake from the auction. A few candidates in the upcoming election came to show their support as well, some of which have attended for years. Chairman Dale Aikens said, There are many delicious cakes that individuals have donated for the auction today. There are often between 30 and 50 cakes that people donate as their way of helping out. He also stated an anonymous donor gave the committee a thousand dollars to be raffled. Sheila Dobson, who was helping run the sno-cone machine with the rest of her family, including her mom Margie Rogers, talked about what the yearly tradition means to her family. Well, Pops, Gary Rogers, is buried there, as well as his daddy and his grandparents. Ever since mom, Margie Rogers, and he got married in / I have been down there. We have always done the snow cones or should I say Mama has, we help. As a teenager, I helped in the serving line and sometimes Dale Aiken presented a plaque to J.P. Morgan for his 35 years of service to the Linden Cemetery Committee K ATHYL INDNER Times correspondent See LINDEN Page 2 To a better event ...While this years Royal Homecoming had its problems, community leaders are working to ensure that next years event comes off smoothly Concerned Royal residents have joined together to form a new corporation that will host next years festivities. The announcement was made to the County Commission last week by Whitany Lewis, youth director and Cliff Hughes, chairman, of the new Vertie May Lewis (pictured at the right) shares her table at the Linden picnic with De Loui Wells and Margorie Wells.

As a result of the hard work of the committee and all the volunteers the dinners were sold out. find private landowners willing to host the event. While a new location was secured, the event was riddled with problems. Hughes told commissioners last week that he had worked with county officials for almost a year trying to resolve their issues and help ensure that the 2012 event would be acceptable, only to be rewarded by them denying the event. Hughes said it was like receiving a slap in the face for his efforts. Steele also had some strong criticisms. In particular, while the event was coordinated to benefit non-profit causes like the Royal community and YPAs, some nearby property owners set up their own money-making ventures that steered funds away from the event. Steele said some county staff representatives told property owners that they could collect donations for allowing patrons to use their property for parking. Other property owners allowed other money-generating activities to occur on their property rather than at the homecoming site. We are troubled, Steele said. One of her complaints was we couldnt keep our promise of a car show and bike show because they were lured onto non-permitted property or couldnt get through the traffic, she told commissioners. It was only one of several issues that Steele reported as being created because of lack of support or misinformation from the county. The commission wants this event more to a more controllable, desirable location but with this kind of confusion, how can that happen? Steele asked. Following her comments, the board returned to timed items on the agenda and no comments were made by commissioners. board. Lewis told commissioners that the corporation, called the Community of Royal Inc. (COR), was created to preserve the communitys rich history and to continue cultural experiences that will enrich the lives of the communitys families for future generations. To ensure a successful event next year, the group will be hosting community meetings this summer and then contact county staff in September to begin planning the event.

Two teenagers were arrested last week for burglarizing a neighbors residence, according to a Sumter sheriffs office report. The teens were arrested about 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday, June 26, when a deputy found them breaking into the back door of a neighbors home in the 8000 block of County Road 647S in Bushnell, the report states. Deputy Tony Hutto arrived and took up a parameter position at the rear of the residence and waited for his backup units to arrive. While at the back corner of the residence he saw a male subject walk out the back door, the report states. The suspect then walked onto the porch and then down the stairs into the yard. The deputy observed that the suspect was carrying a long rifle. Hutto ordered the subject to drop the weapon and lay on the ground, according to the report. The subject was secured at this time. Backup arrived and located and arrested another male subject who was still inside the residence. The weapon turned out to be a 22-caliber rifle, Glenfield Model 60 that was taken from the residence, the reports states. Deputies discovered pry marks on the back door. The defendants, a 14-year-old from Bushnell and a 15-year-old from Brooksville, were arrested for armed burglary and transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Ocala.

P AGE 4 S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 5, 2012 New doors open in murder case T heres excitement brewing about the new scientific information recently obtained by the Sumter County Sheriffs Office concerning the 1971 murder of a young woman whose body was found in swamps under the Lake Panasoffkee bridge on Interstate 75. For decades, investigators have tried to solve the murder. But their attempts have been fruitless. Even with a substantial amount of effort by having the womans body exhumed and examined, facial reconstruction and a spot on a nationally televised show, no information has ever lead to the identity of the victim investigators labeled as Little Miss Lake Panasoffkee. But that may have changed last week when new scientific evidence helped clarify the womans background and could provide the necessary keys to finally unlocking this unsolved murder. For decades, investigators believed that the woman was of American Indian descent. But new evidence strongly suggests that the woman actually was of Greek origins. It even has even been determined that she came from a small town just outside Athens and that she had only been in the United States less than a year before her murder. Armed with the new information, sheriffs office investigators now believe that the woman may have been in the Tarpon Springs area shortly before her death. Based on the suspected date of her murder, investigators believe that she may have been in the Tarpon Springs community for the annual Epiphany celebration which is held annually on Jan. 6 Sheriffs officials are now in contact with Tarpon Springs church and law enforcement representatives in hopes that more information about her identity can be discovered. This new avenue of thinking opens up completely new doors of investigation and now leads law enforcement in new directions never explored before. Want change?Achieving meaningful change in Washington, D.C. requires many more thinking citizens to vote in the primaries. In gerrymandered states Texas (Texas is typical of the other states), the November general election results are largely determined by the results in the primaries months earlier. This is especially true of congresspersons. Usually only the reddest of republicans and the bluest of democrats vote in the primaries. Independents rarely vote in them! This practice causes devastating unintended consequences. Independents contribute nothing where/when its easiest to bring about meaningful change. The primary election season for the current election cycle is more than half over! The results so far: almost all (90 plus percent) of congressional incumbents have won their primary elections and are almost certain to win reelection to congress in November! If you really want change in Washington forget your party affiliation if any. Everyone should vote in the primary of the incumbents party and vote for someone other than the incumbent. First defeat the incumbent (its harder to do than you think!); then come November vote for the best candidate available. If you really want change in Washington vote in the primary like a determined independent who really wants change! Glen Terrell Arlington, TX Helping animals Purina ONE beyOnd and GOOD believes that everyone can make a positive difference when it comes to enriching the lives of shelter pets and helping them find forever homes. In the Shine a Light on a Shelter challenge, Purina ONE beyOnd and GOOD are asking the public to submit a story describing the following: How one local animal shelter is making the world a better place; and Why that shelter should receive the Grant to expand their good work. At Purina ONE beyOnd, we recognize that shelter pets arent always perceived in a positive light. For example, the way animals are sometimes portrayed in advertising and in the media may lead people to believe these animals are damaged, which ultimately, negatively impacts the adoption numbers nationwide, said Christina Schneider, assistant brand manager. Thats why we are committed to making sure the world gets to know shelter pets, as many really are friendly, attractive and wonderful life-long companions. And, the Shine a Light on a Shelter is a perfect start to help combat this misperception. Starting on June 28, 2012, anyone can nominate at purina.maker.good.is. Nominations are accepted June 28, 2012 through July 30, 2012. The public will be invited to vote for the most innovative shelter. Voting runs August 6, 2012 through August 20, 2012, with the winner revealed after August 21, 2012. The winning shelter will receive a $10,000 grant from Purina ONE beyOnd brand dog and cat food to expand its work. The submitter will win one (1) years worth of Purina ONE beyOnd pet food and one (1) year subscription to GOOD magazine. Jennifer Chiou, general manager of GOOD Maker commented, Animal shelters play a very important role in our world. Not only do they provide essential services to animals in need, they also improve the overall health and well-being of our communities. Purina ONE beyOnd recognizes this and is shining a light on innovative shelters that are doing more than just providing care they are changing peoples perception of shelter pets from pity to praise as they find these loving animals forever families. GOOD is proud to partner with Purina ONE beyOnd in recognizing these worthy organizations. GOOD magazine Disabled parking permit requirements to change If you have a blue permanent disabled parking permit, you need to be aware of the new requirements put in place by Florida lawmakers. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will implement the new law. Effective Oct. 1, any person issued a blue permanent disabled parking permit must renew the permit every four years and, when doing so, provide a certificate of disability completed and signed by a certifying authority within the last 12 months. That means every blue disabled parking permit holder will, at least every four years and within 12 months of the date of their renewal, fill out Form HSMV 83039. Permit holders will not have to pay a renewal fee. In addition, effective July 1, if your blue permanent disabled parking permit is lost or stolen, a replacement will only be issued if you submit the same documentation required for renewals. The new law does not affect red temporary disabled parking permits, nor people who have disabled (wheelchair) license plates. Under current Florida law, blue disabled parking permit holders must renew their parking permits every four years, but they do not have to submit certificates of disability when renewing. They can renew online, by mail or by visiting a Tax Collectors office. The legislation also directs DHSMV to collect calls reporting abuse of the permits. Calls should be placed to the DHSMV Customer Service Center at (850) 617-3803. The blue disabled parking permit with a current sticker must be visible from the front and rear of a motor vehicle. One side of the permit must display the applicants driver license number or state identification card number along with a warning the applicant must have such identification at all times while using the parking permit. Illegally obtaining or using a permit can result in the loss of the parking permit and carries the potential for criminal penalties as outlined in Florida Statute 320.0848. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 5, 2012, P AGE 5 Bushnell set to discuss police dept. The Bushnell City Council will consider next week several options concerning the future of city law enforcement. When the board meets at 6 p.m. Monday, July 9, city officials will continue considering whether it would be best to turn over law enforcement to the sheriffs office, hire a new police chief to reorganize the police department or put off any decision until the board meets again in August. While the proposal to city officials from the Sumter County Sheriffs Office would save hundreds of thousands of dollars, the cost savings doesnt mean the decision is a done deal. Some residents have voiced strong support for city officials to keep its own police department. The City Council began looking at options to its police department earlier this year when the results of an investigation cast the police department and some of its key employees in a critical light. When the investigation results were released, claiming a variety of mismanagement issues, Joyce Wells retired as police chief. Since then, the board has collected a list of five candidates seeking the position of police chief. City officials tabled taking any action on the candidate list until they determine what course of action they will take. The agreement with the sheriffs office is a fiveyear contract that would cost the city $759,000 the first year and then averaging slightly more than $600,000 for the remaining four years. That agreement would provide Bushnell with a total of eight law enforcement officers dedicated to the city. City Manager Vince Ruano has said the yearly savings for the city would amount to about $200,000 annually. The board meets at 6 p.m. Monday, July 9, city officials will continue considering options for city law enforcement.

Twilight Gatherings set for August Are you a farmer? Are you thinking about farming? Then how about a quaint little dinner in the twilight at a local Sumter County farm? Designed to allow folks a chance to network, share and garner information on agriculture, Twilight Gatherings is a new program being coordinated by the Sumter County Extension Office. Slated to begin in August, the first gathering will be at The Center Hill Blueberry Patch. Meeting locations will change with each meeting. Open to farmers and those interested in farming, its an opportunity to network with others in the industry. The gathering will include a chance to chat with other growers, a potluck dinner, a small program presented by the extension office and a tour of the farm where the gathering is held. County Extension agent and event coordinator Susan Kelly said its an idea that shes had for a while, considering the evaluation information from their annual Agritunity surveys. Shes also considered things they do in other areas. Many of those who attend Agritunity indicate that they really enjoy the opportunity to network with other farmers, so Kelly figured added opportunities could be a benefit. It was just an idea Ive had for a while, she said, noting that Farmers like to learn from each other. Camille E. Esmel, Phd., the new multi-county commercial horticulture agent suggested that the gatherings take place in the evenings, citing her experiences from New Hampshire. The twilight time allows people to have completed other things during their day, especially since many of the growers have other occupations as well. The event is also for prospective growers those thinking about getting into the business. Kelly hopes their effort is the catalyst that will help the groups build relationships and open an information flow. So, if a twilight gathering sounds like the thing for you, plan to bring your lawn chair, a dish to share and call Kelly to make a reservation. The extension office is 352-793-2728. Evening potluck on the farm offers networking opportunity for those interested in agriculture B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff WriterThe Florida International Teaching Zoo and The Villages Life Long Learning Center are offering a 14 week Veterinary Assistant certification lecture program.

Sumter County goes wild for flowers T he Florida Wildflower Foundation recently awarded grants for 12 planting projects in 11 counties through its La Florida, Land of Flowers, Community Grant Program. Counties in which grants were awarded include Brevard, Broward, Gadsden, Indian River, Lake, Lee, Leon, Martin, Polk, Sumter and Walton. Grants will be used to acquire $500 worth of native wildflower seeds or plants for the projects. Program funding is provided by the generous donations received from Florida State Wildflower license plate sales and renewals.

Grants have been awarded to: The town of Melbourne Village (Brevard County), to establish wildflowers at the intersection of West Pine Road and Norman Drive. Indian River Lagoon National Scenic Byway (Brevard County), which will plant wildflowers at its welcome center, the Moorhead Lagoon House, 3275 Dixie Highway NE, Palm Bay.

For any questions please call 352-689-4670. Mosquito Control Officials say flooding created by Tropical Storm Debby has created the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Sumter County received an estimated 7 to 11 inches of rainfall throughout the county. Standing water from Debby has increased and will continue to increase mosquito populations throughout the entire county. Mosquitoes are in the juvenile stages (larva/pupa) after the recent rainfall, but soon adult mosquito populations will flourish. Mosquito Control crews have been larvaciding (treating aquatic breeding sites) hit hardest by rainfall. Larvaciding is an effective way of controlling juvenile mosquitoes before they emerge as biting, pestiferous, disease carrying adults. A mosquito can breed in a teaspoon of water and can develop into a biting adult in 3 to 7 days. Citizens should eliminate standing water around their homes to prevent mosquito breeding. Some of the areas to inspect include gutters, bird baths, potted plants, buckets, containers, old tires, etc., anything that will hold water. Mosquitoes are generally more active between dusk and dawn, especially near wooded or swampy areas. Insect repellants can help to reduce exposure to mosquito bites. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends using a repellant that contains DEET, Picardin, or oil of lemon eucalyptus. Adulticiding (night spraying for adult mosquitoes), has been underway in Sumter County since Wednesday, June 13, 2012. Adult mosquito population surveillance is accomplished by way of mosquito light traps, citizen complaints and landing rates. Within the next several days these adult populations will greatly increase. The Sumter County Mosquito Control Department is currently on full alert and at 100 percent operational capacity. If you have any questions, concerns or would like to request mosquito control operations in your area, please call the Mosquito Control Department at 352-569-6700.

After returning from a trip out of town, I sat down to read the Sumter County Times and get caught up on the two weeks of news I missed. I was surprised and saddened to read of the passing of Ms. Jemison, a friend who shared her love of animals with me, I met Mrs. Jemison through my Critter Chatter column. She was an avid reader of the column, and would call me or stop by my place of business to chat about many animal issues that concerned her. One day she stopped by after reading an article about Luigi, our amputee donkey. She was so fascinated at the thought of a donkey wearing a prosthetic leg, and asked me if she could meet him. That afternoon, Mrs. Jemison visited our small farm and met not only Luigi, but our other farm animals too. Mrs. Jemison was always finely dressed, yet there she was, walking around the pasture with a donkey, a mule, a horse, and several goats. And with a big smile on her face, she would great each one, and gently speak to each animal. Many times after that, I would speak to Mrs. Jemison on the phone or chat with her in the stores. She was a classy lady with a wonderful sense of humor, and a warm heart for animals. I will miss her very much. Through our shared love of nature and animals, we connect with special people who share a common interest with us, and friendships form. Over the years I have been privileged to meet many good people who share the same love of animals that I have. We all understand how our pets enrich our lives, and we appreciate the beauty of all the wildlife that surrounds us. Mrs. Jemison reached out and connected with people. She was a woman of faith with a love of life and respect for all living things. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her and calling her friend.

Mr. Robert Word of Oxford did it again with 14 nice shell crackers. Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Weekly fishing report by Donna Lind, president and owner: Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 342 Anglers bass fishing 330 Bass caught 374 Bass released 353 Pan fish caught 381Hey yall, what a wonderful week of fishing here on beautiful Lake Panasoffkee. Boy all the rain we got has really brought the fish to jumping. It really has been a great week for fishing, but I want to tell you another story that happened this week. The osprey nest that Ive told you about dropped a baby out. Come to find out the mom will drop the weakest one so the strong ones will have a better chance to survive. Anyway we called the Humane Society to come get him to help save his life and he is now at Feather Land in Weirsdale being treated. So in return they released two osprey from Lake County. What an awesome sight it was. Ms. Anita de Villegas of Feather Land recues all kinds of birds. She is a wonderful lady. The wing span is unreal on these babies. Being so up close to them was a great feeling. I want to thank Ms. Anita for all that she does with the rehab with our feathered friends. Yall folks take the time to enjoy our wildlife around you. So many little things will put a smile on you face and joy in your heart. Nothing better to me than the sun rising with a cup of coffee and watching mother nature waking up. As I mentioned in last weeks report I have found the website myfwc.com to be an excellent source of information for fishing not only for Lake Panasoffkee but for fishing in general.
