Take a walk on the wild side and head out to the woods for some incredible edibles a tasty tuber, wild young leaf salad, wild berries and protein nuts all straight from the wilds of a Florida forest or in this case, the wilds of a Florida state park. Dozens of students spent a couple of hours with Kristen Wood of Dade Park, hiking along the edge of the woods and collecting lunch from the wilds for their Incredible Edibles class. They showed students which leaves, berries and grasses could be used for flavoring or to toss up a salad, what treat was buried deep below a stinging nettle and how to steep up some pine tea. Students learned about the paw-paw plant, stinging nettles or a seven-minute itch and the cabbage palm, as well as the very messy, but very delicious red mulberries; winged sumac and the wax myrtle used for making candles. Volunteer Judy Bradley picked young long-needle pine and steeped it for fresh pine tea sweetened with Tupelo honey. Wood used posthole diggers to show the class how to get below a stinging nettle. She had to dig at least two feet down, but she eventually found the main root part and it was at least three inches Thursday, August 2, 2012Volume 126 Number 31Established 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 Pet of week Accused shooter was former teacher The Cape Coral man accused last week of shooting and killing a door-to-door salesman outside his home is a former Sumter County school teacher who was once arrested for threatening a SECO meter reading with a gun. Kenneth Roop, 52, self employed, was arrested Wednesday, July 25, for the shooting death of Nicholas Rainey, 30, of Fort Myers, a salesman for Blue Ribbon Steak & Seafood. Rainey was delivering food outside Roops Cape Coral home when the shooting happened, according to Cape Coral police. Roop, a former teacher and coach at South Sumter High School, has been arrested for seconddegree murder, according to Cape Coral police Lt. Tony Sizemore. Police say that there was a confrontation between the two men in the driveway outside Roops home. Rainey was shot during the confrontation and died at the scene. The Cape Coral Police Department grieves with the Rainey family at this time, said Sizemore. Our number one priority now is to partner with our colleagues at the State Attorneys Office for a successful prosecution and to bring justice to the victim and his family. Roop was a teacher in the Sumter County school system from August 1995 until his resignation in May 2005, according to School Supt. Rick Shirley. The majority of his teaching career in Sumter County was spent at South Sumter High School where he taught environmental education and earth sciences, according to Shirley. He also coached the basketball and track teams. Roop also was a teacher a South Sumter Middle School for a short time. See BITE Page 19 Local robberies may be linked Sumter County sheriffs detectives believe that a Saturday armed robbery at a Webster convenience store may be connected to a similar robbery last week at a Nobleton convenience store. The suspects in both robberies have similar descriptions and were dressed in similar attire, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The convenience stores are about 15 miles apart. The first robbery happened at the Circle K convenience store in the 9300 block of CR. 476 W. in Nobleton. A surveillance video taken at the store shows the two suspects entering about 10:53 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24, according to a sheriffs office press release. Both suspects were wearing dark-colored clothing that consisted of long black pants, black hoodies, black shoes, and black bandannas that covered their facial area. One of the suspects, who brandished a silver colored handgun during the robbery, is described as 5 foot 11, muscular build, weighing approximately about 160 to 170 pounds and wore a hoodie shirt that displayed lettering consistent with the design style of an Echo Unlimited brand sweatshirt. The second suspect, carrying a red bag, is described as a heavyset black male, approximately 5 foot 8, weighing 210 to 220 pounds. The suspects left the store and fled on foot towards County Road 647. Within a few seconds, a black colored two-door Acura was seen leaving the area traveling west on C.R. 476 towards Hernando County at a high rate of See ROB Page 7 Go ahead, take a bite B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer See ROOP Page 3 Kenneth Roop is a former teacher and coach at South Sumter High School.

P AGE A2SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 2, 2012 ADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISE Call Mike 793-2161 BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesChuck Westphal holds up a 1915 porcelain license plate that was found buried near the utilities box where Bushnells new downtown park is under construction. Westphal is a collector, with thousands of plates from various locations and years. W hen construction began on the new community park in downtown Bushnell, it turned out to be a great thing for Chuck Westphal a local resident who collects license plates. Thats because he got a call about a 1915 license plate that was found on the site one of only 10 that was ever made. Westphals collection isnt just a few plates from various areas, but rather thousands, displayed on special wall panels and in a climate controlled building. The 1915 porcelain plate was found near the fire hydrant, across the street from Evans Ace Hardware, Westphal said. Westphal is a serious collector and people in the area know him. As a matter of fact, he learned about the tag through someone from the countys tag office. As for the old tags, he said A lot of people throw them in the drawer. While the worker who sold it to him was contemplating keeping it, Westphal is a firm believer that money talks and that the tag is now with its rightful owner. He paid the finder $500 for the tag. I got the call at 9:15 that morning and by 4 p.m. it was in my hand, he said, adding with humor,I wouldnt have been able to eat supper if I hadnt found it by then. The tag is one of eight Sumter County porcelain tags that I have. The porcelains were only produced over a period of five years, as far as we know. There could be a 1912, but no one has ever seen or heard of one, he said. Westphal explained that the county was very poor at the time and its possible something else was used to create tags. There were 20 porcelain tags made for Sumter County and they were made from 1912 to 1917. Of those made, they know there were three from 1913 and I have two of the three. There were four in 1914, of which he has one, one made in 1916 and two made in 1917. The most were made in 1915 there were 10. In 1918 they became state issue and the porcelain tag was done, Westphal said. New Bushnell park yields old license tag Westphals collection isnt just a few plates from various areas, but rather thousands, displayed on special wall panels and in a climate controlled building.

He also was a 1977 graduate of Wildwood High School, Shirley said. During his employment with the school district, Roops employment records did not contain any problems or issues, according to Shirley. But a month after he resigned from the school district, he was arrested by the Sumter County Sheriffs Office and charged with improperly exhibiting a firearm. Roop was arrested June 24, 2005, following an incident earlier that month when he pointed a gun at SECO meter reader, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. A jury found Roop not guilty of the charge in October that same year, according to court records. The incident happened on June 9, 2005, when a SECO employee went to Roops Oxford home to read the electric meter, Caruthers said. The SECO employee said while she was reading the meter she heard someone say, Dont move, stay right there, Caruthers said. She looked up and saw a man pointing a gun at her. After explaining who she was, the employee said Roop lowered his gun and walked up the steps to go back inside his house and said, Read it. The employee called the sheriffs office after the incident because she was afraid Roop was going to shoot her, according to Caruthers. Sumter sheriffs detectives are continuing an investigation into recent thefts at the Bushnell Walmart Supercenter that resulted in the arrest of two Citrus County residents. On Sunday, July 22, Christopher N. Jones, 20, of Inverness, and Genevieve O. Davis, 19, of Hernando, were both arrested for felony retail theft. Investigators say that the pair removed two Vizio 32-inch televisions, valued at more than $400 from the Bushnell store. Surveillance video captured the pair entering the store and placing the two televisions in a shopping cart before exiting the store without paying for the items, according to a sheriffs office press release. They left with the televisions and were driving an orange colored Dodge Neon. Sumter sheriffs detectives were led to Davis after finding a 2005 Dodge Neon registered to her that matched the description seen leaving Walmart in surveillance video, according to the report. On Thursday, July 26, Sumter County detectives observed Jones and Davis in the Dodge Neon at the Inverness Walmart and called Citrus County deputies for assistance. The pair was arrested at 8:10 p.m. by Citrus County deputies and taken to the Citrus County Detention Center. Sumter Det. Brian Wilson interviewed the pair at the detention center and both confessed to committing the crimes. Both are being held on the charge of felony retail theft with their bond set at $2,000. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are anticipated. S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 2, 2012, P AGE A3 Most Wanted Syed Alam, 25 2370 S.W.

P AGE A4SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 2, 2012 Improperly applied fertilizers harmful to our water bodies A s more people focus on their lawns and landscaping this time of year, the Southwest Florida Water Management District promotes Floridafriendly fertilizing practices. Florida-friendly fertilizing is an annual campaign encouraging residents to responsibly maintain their lawns. Recent studies have shown rising nitrate levels in many local water bodies can be traced to fertilizer. Nitrate is a form of nitrogen found in inorganic fertilizers. When fertilizer is applied correctly, the lawn absorbs the nitrogen. However, fertilizers applied improperly run off lawns and into local water bodies, harming water quality and threatening the plants and animals that depend on clean water for survival. Florida-friendly fertilizing emphasizes these tips: Use slow-release fertilizers. Always follow package directions. Dont fertilize before a heavy rain. Fertilize only when needed and only when grass is actively growing. Residents can visit www.WaterMatters.org/fertilizing for step-by-step instructions on fertilizing appropriately and to watch corresponding how-to-videos. Residents also can order a free Do-It-Yourself Guide to Florida-Friendly Fertilizing for more information. Fertilizing appropriately is one of the nine principles Florida-Friendly Landscaping, a set of guidelines developed by the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences to protect our natural resources while promoting beautiful landscapes. Robyn Felix Southwest Florida Water Management District NCAA Piling On Penn State I am upset about the child abuse committed by Sandusky and the cover up by Paterno, Curley, Schulz and Spanier. The lives of many young children have been adversely impacted by these men. And that is my point. The five individuals were involved with these tragic events, not the assistant football coaches, not the football players, not the faculty and not the student body. I believe the NCAA president and executive board overstepped their authority by imposing very harsh penalties on the Penn State football program and by extension on the entire university. The penalties will needlessly decimate one of the premier athletic programs in the country and could debilitate the entire university. If the leaders of a corporation, e.g. president, vice president, commit a crime, are the junior level managers and hourly workers punished? If a parent commits a crime, are his/her children punished for the crime? The NCAA decided to use Penn State as a scapegoat example to thwart other university leaders from going astray. I think the NCAA should have stayed out of it and let the criminal and civil proceedings run their courses. The NCAA is persecuting innocent people. Donald A.

P aul and G erry McC ormic Wildwood Call FWC for issues with alligators A lligators are active during the warm-weather months, and theres a good chance that people who live around water will encounter these native creatures. Alligators are deceptively quick, both in and out of the water. If someone is bitten by an alligator, he or she should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Alligator bites can result in serious infections requiring specific antibiotic treatment, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officials. Avoid the risk of an alligator bite by not taking matters into your own hands or putting yourself in harms way. Call the FWCs Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286) to report any alligator you believe poses a threat to people, pets or property. If theres an issue with an alligator, call the FWC and let the experts take care of it, said FWC Lt. Scott Lee, Taylor County watch supervisor. We certainly dont want anyone getting hurt attempting to capture, kill or subdue an alligator. Taking an alligator without a permit is a violation of FWC rules, and anyone intentionally killing an alligator could be cited, Lee explained. The Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program (SNAP) uses contracted nuisance alligator trappers throughout the state to remove alligators that have become a problem. If an alligator is 4 feet or larger and the complaint meets other qualifying criteria, SNAP will issue a permit to a contracted nuisance alligator trapper authorizing the removal of the animal. In 2010, SNAP received 13,047 nuisance alligator complaints, resulting in the removal of 5,856 nuisance alligators. Here are some tips people can use to stay safer around alligators: Be aware of the possibility of alligators when you are in or near fresh or brackish water. Bites may occur when people do not pay close enough attention to their surroundings when working or recreating near water. Do not swim outside of posted swimming areas or in waters that might be inhabited by large alligators. Alligators are most active between dusk and dawn. Therefore, avoid swimming at night. Dogs and cats are similar in size to the natural prey of alligators. Dont allow pets to swim, exercise or drink in or near waters that may contain alligators. Never feed alligators its dangerous and illegal. Dispose of fish scraps in garbage cans at boat ramps and fish camps. Do not throw them into the water. Although you are not intentionally feeding alligators when you do this, the result can be the same. Observe and photograph alligators only from a distance. Leave alligators alone. Handling even small alligators can result in injury. State law prohibits killing, harassing or possessing alligators. For more information on alligators, visit MyFWC.com/Alligator.

Thanks to information gathering by one local resident and the plans of County Commissioner Doug Gilpin, the questions and concerns of Lake Panasoffkee residents will be the focus of a Tuesday, Aug. 7, meeting in the community. Called a listening session, the meeting is slated to begin at 6 p.m. in the Lake Panasoffkee Recreation Center, the listening session is just that, according to Gilpin. Over the course of several years Ive worked with individuals on issues and I wanted to give the community an opportunity, he said. He explained the meeting and open forum style will allow residents a chance to ask questions and voice concerns, noting some of the issues expected to be discussed are golf cart access and park usage and plans. I would like to get a feel for the community in regard to this water and sewer issue thats been talked about, he said. Gilpin will be accompanied by the countys administrator Bradley Arnold and other top management, he said. Lake Panasoffkee resident Patty Wall contacted the county administration office after being pulled over by police in her golf cart. Wall said she and dozens of other people were using their carts to travel from location to location in the community, but learned there were only three roads that are legally designated for golf cart use. I would like to see all the secondary roads approved, she said. Wall used to own a florist shop in the community and currently sells tie-dye shirts and works with Devereaux Kids. She estimates shes met 50 people she didnt know previously all from driving her golf cart around the community. She said travelling by cart seems to have brought a sense of community. Now aware of the laws, she said she is no longer travelling by cart, but would like to see the laws change or expand to allow the travel. She decided to contact the county to see about a meeting and said when other residents learned about her efforts, they began to share other information and concerns with her. In some cases, people have been concerned about dilapidated homes in their neighborhoods and animal control issues. Wall said she has been urging residents to take pictures and bring them to the meeting. She estimates shes talked to more than 75 people about the upcoming event and several say they are coming and bringing their neighborhood. Ive really taken an interest in this town and I love it, she said. The recreation center is at 1589 C.R. 459.

The robbers made off with an undisclosed amount of money and the two cashiers on duty at the time of the robbery were not injured. The Webster robbery happened at a very similar time and also involved two cloaked suspects armed with a similar weapon. The robbery happened at 10:25 p.m. on Saturday, July 28, at the Shop & Go on N. Market Street, in Webster, according to a sheriffs office report. In that robbery, two suspects, one armed with a silver semi-automatic pistol, entered the store demanding cash from the cashier, according to a sheriffs office report. Afterwards, both suspects fled the store on foot. Sheriffs K9s were called in and tracked the suspects west along County Road 478 before losing the suspects scent. Similar descriptions were given for the suspects in the Webster robbery. One suspect is described as approximately 6 foot tall, muscular build, weighing 170 to 180 pounds, wearing black shorts, black athletic shoes, and a red hoodie. He had a blue bandanna covering his lower facial area and was armed with a silver semi-automatic handgun. The second suspect is described as a heavyset black male approximately 5 foot, weighing 210 to 220 pounds wearing all black clothing that consisted of long black pants, black hoodie, black shoes, and a black bandanna that covered his lower facial area. There were two cashiers on duty at the time and neither was injured, according to the report. Sumter detectives are investigating similarities between both robberies and surveillance videos of the robberies have been posted on the sheriffs website for public viewing. If anyone has information regarding these robberies, contact Det. Derek Pike at the Sumter County Sheriffs Office at 569-1600, or Crimeline at 1-800-423TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

viously. Gorby serves as the facilitator for Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Project, through Devereux Kids. She and church member Bridget Veal served as event coordinators for the luau. We were able to provide resources to over 1,100 attendees, which was double from what we were able to last year. The event shows the families in the Lake Panasoffkee area and surrounding areas they have a community that is supportive of their welfare and supportive of positive youth development, Gorby said. There were more than two dozens agencies, organizations or businesses represented, including the county extension office, Thomas E.

Gorby said theyve already seen results from the luau and additional people taking advantage of some of the resources. A lot of families were connected with the Lake Panasoffkee Cub Scout group. Several local residents also took advantage of free parenting classes offered at the church. The very next parenting class, after the luau, we had a significant increase in the number attending. Gorby said they received good feedback from Take Stock in Children too. They were working to bring more children into the program from Sumter County and also set up a speaking engagement, that will allow them to share information about the program.

ROADSIDE BUNNY ...Grace notes Doing the Almighty happy dance Editors note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation again this week. This column is one of her favorites, first run in June 2008.W ere doing the happy dance at my house these days. It started when, one day last week, I went to turn on the TV in the living room and it popped, which is never a good sound coming from a major appliance or electronic device. My husband had been pining for a flat-screen, high-definition TV for months and Ive balked at the idea. Our TV was good enough. But that morning good enough became dead. Later that day Barry called me at work and said, Before you start screaming, hear me out. (Note to male readers: Thats never a good way to start a conversation. Trust me on this one.) He called to say he bought a flat-screen, highdefinition TV. He had gone out with every intention of buying just a regular TV but had a momentary lapse of husbandly fear of wifely retribution. Honestly, I have nothing against flat-screen, highdefinition TVs. My only concern was size. I have a cabinet that a local cabinetmaker made me years ago and I didnt want a monster TV ruining the living room dcor. Barry assured me the one he bought would fit inside the cabinet. Crisis averted. And the Kennedys can live happily ever after. Also, we discovered, with a high-definition TV comes the need for a highdefinition cable box. As we were fiddling with it we noticed we got a bunch of premium movie channels that we didnt order. Barry called to cancel them and the lady at the cable company said we could watch free movies until they turned them off the next day. Saturday morning Evan Almighty, a modernday Noah and the ark story, was playing. As with Bruce Almighty, I love Morgan Freeman as God. Hes exactly as I imagine God to be patient, witty, winsome, yet unwavering in what he wants to do in a persons life. Throughout the movie, the main character, Evan, does a kind of jerky happy dance, and at the very end of the movie, after the big flood and after wrong has been righted and Evan is a hero because he built this crazy gigantic ark and saved his neighbors from drowning after a dam broke as a result of a crooked Congressmans shady dealings, he sees God under a tree on a hill. They talk and then God says, Its time do the dance. Evan says, Care to join me? and then they do this silly, jerky happy dance together and God disappears and a white dove with an olive branch in its mouth takes his place. Then, before the credits roll, Morgan Freeman appears on screen holding stone tablets and says, I now issue a new commandment: Thou shalt do the dance, and everybody in the cast and crew dance to C + C Music Factorys Everybody Dance Now. When Evan danced with God tears came to my eyes and I said, I want to dance with God! That hit something in me, something that felt true and right, and I sensed God, the real God not the Morgan Freeman God, say that I can dance with him that I do dance with him. That I am dancing with him. The life of faith really is that simple. Its not about keeping rules, because we cant keep them but Jesus kept them for us so we could be unburdened and unshackled and stripped of guilt and shame and freed up to dance with God our silly happy dances. For those who think the faith life is all about our obedience, it is but obedience comes as a result of the dancing and not as its cause. If you think God is cold and stern and demanding, youll never dance with him, despite your obedience and diligence. But if you dance first because hes invited you to, then youll obey his rules. Not always and not completely, but willingly. I believe nothing happens without a reason and I believe God wanted my husband to bring home a flat-screen, high-definition TV and a high-definition cable box so I could watch a free HBO movie with questionable theology but a great reminder that God smiles and he laughs and he says to his people, Everybody dance now!

The Red, White and Blue BBQ is presented annually by the chambers Leadership Sumter participants and alumni to recognize outstanding public service employees as selected by their chiefs, as well as a civilian who has exhibited exceptional service to the local community. Adult tickets for the Red, White and Blue BBQ are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, and include an allyou-can-eat barbecued beef and chicken dinner, soft drinks and dessert. Beer and wine will also be available for purchase. Tickets for children ages 715 are $9 in advance, $12 at the door. Tickets can be obtained by calling the Sumter County Chamber at 352-793-3099 or e-mailing info@sumterchamber.org. Wally Kurz and Peg Casey of We Ride for Kids organized the first cycling event sponsored by The Villages to raise money for local youth programs. Wally and Peg were the driving force behind the event, spending countless hours mapping the course, gathering event sponsors and raffle donations, coordinating media, and organizing more than 300 participants from all over central Florida. Because of Wally and Pegs devotion and determination to make We Ride for Kids a success, the event raised $8,000 for Project Legacy and the Sumter County Youth Centers. We are extremely pleased to honor Wally and Peg Caseys tremendous efforts on behalf of Sumter Countys youth, said Chamber Executive Director Andrew Cripps. They are truly deserving of this award, and we are delighted to recognize their outstanding contribution to the development and enrichment of services to our countys young people. The chamber presented the Community Hero Award to Beverly Steele last year for her work on behalf of the Young Performing Artists, Inc., which helps young performing and visual artists and provide creative solutions to youth development. Valor Award nominations were received from the Sumter County Sheriffs Department, Sumter County Fire and Rescue, and Rural/Metro Ambulance. Sumter County Sheriff Bill Farmer nominated Sumter County Detention Center Sergeant James Reid for saving the life of an inmate. Reid was making his observation checks on February 11, 2012 when he discovered an inmate lying on the concrete bench with what appeared to be something around his neck. Reid observed the inmate was not breathing and, upon entering the cell, could not detect a pulse on the inmate. He place the man on the floor and began using an Ambu bag rescue breather until a pulse was detected and the inmate began to breathe on his own. While waiting for EMS, the inmate stopped breathing again, and Sgt. Reid again used the rescue breather until the inmate started breathing on his own and regained consciousness. Sumter County Fire and EMS nominated Lieutenant Damon Allen for the Valor Award. Deputy Chief Francis Ennist says Lieutenant Allen is characterized by his all-around abilities to perform, lead, instruct, assist and teambuild. He is always available and always involved. He strives to learn and strives even harder to share that knowledge with those around him. He is respected by all and serves as a mentor to those that he imparts knowledge or skills and abilities, said Deputy Chief Ennist. Rural/Metro Ambulance General Manager Christine Hill nominated Paramedic Christopher Cole and EMT Vonna Nutter for Valor Awards. On April 14, 2012 Cole and Nutter arrived on-scene at a single vehicle accident in which a 52-year-old male was trapped under his vehicle which had overturned and was on fire. The vehicle was down an approximate 10-foot embankment. The EMS crew initially attempted to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher. When the fire continued to spread, with the patient still conscious, the crew chose to place their own safety in danger and dragged the approximate 450-lb patient away from the vehicle until other responders arrived for assistance. Their choice to risk their own safety in the attempt to save this mans life is why Hill nominated them for the Valor Award. Those seeking more information about Red, White and Blue BBQ or the Community Hero Award should contact the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce at 352-793-3099.

It is a very contagious disease that is spread from person to person by coughing. Nationwide, as in Florida, there has been an increase in the number of pertussis cases. In 2012, 323 cases have been reported to state health departments in Florida, a doubling from cases reported the previous year. The number of cases of pertussis spikes cyclically. The last major increase in Florida (prior to this one) occurred in 2009. Pertussis causes uncontrollable, violent coughing which often makes it hard to breathe. After fits of many coughs, someone with pertussis often needs to take deep breathes which result in a whooping sound. Pertussis most commonly affects infants and young children, especially those that did not complete their primary vaccination series, and can be fatal, especially in babies less than 1 year of age. Pertussis immunity wanes after completion of the primary vaccination series in childhood. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention therefore recommends that persons receive a booster dose, ideally to persons at 11-12 years of age. If this booster dose was not given, the CDC recommends a one time booster dose be given as soon as possible to all adolescents and adults, including persons ages 65 and older. Pertussis vaccines are very effective in protecting you from disease. You should ask your healthcare provider about vaccination against Pertussis to protect yourself and for your family. The Sumter County Health Department may be reached at 352-569-3121 for more information. Health Department issues whooping cough warning

Born and raised in Westland, Mich., Josh Gracins first public appearance was at an eighth grade talent competition where he sang Garth Brooks 1993 hit Standing Outside the Fire and managed to win over an audience full of dance music-loving peers. After high school, he enlisted in the Marines. About two years into his four-year term in the Marines, he saw the first American Idol show. Though he hadnt sung in a couple of years, he auditioned and was chosen as a finalist in the second year of the series, ultimately placing fourth. Gracins transition from reality show contestant to recording star began when he sang Rascal Flatts Im Movin On on an American Idol episode. The guys in Rascal Flatts happened to be watching the show on their tour bus that night. Bass player Jay DeMarcus, impressed with Gracins talent, called and put him in touch with Marty Williams, who had co-produced both the bands breakthrough album and its successful followup. That led to a record deal with Lyric Street, the same label that signed Rascal Flatts. Gracins self-titled debut album, featuring the first single I Want to Live, was released in 2004. Its second single, Nothin to Lose, reached No. 1 at country radio. Gracins highly-anticipated sophomore effort, We Werent Crazy, was released in 2008 and delivered title track, We Werent Crazy, the ballad Unbelievable (Ann Marie), written by Gracin about his wife, and fan favorite Favorite State of Mind.

PET OF THE WEEK Critter chatter T he ASPCA is a well respected national humane organization that the Sumter Disaster Animal Response Logistics Team works closely with, providing life saving transports and trained personnel when needed. Since February of this year, the ASPCA along with 100 responders and DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) volunteers have been caring for 700 cats in north Florida. Stemming from complaints, a year long investigation had exposed the cats living in severe neglect conditions. Suffering from eye infections and upper respiratory diseases, the cats were living in filthy conditions. Emaciated and sick cats were housed with other cats, quickly transmitting diseases among each other. 29 deceased cats were discovered. With medical issues not addressed, and no spay and neuter program in place, the cats multiplied and the diseases spread. The cats quality of life was poor at best, and they suffered many diseases including the FIV virus. The ASPCA forensic teams Mobile Animal Crime Scene Investigation Unit was on site to document and collect evidence that has been used in the criminal case. The Investigations Division is a team of experts that assist in criminal investigations. When needed they provide expert testimony in legal procedures. The ASPCA has spent millions of dollars rescuing the 700 cats. They have set up a temporary shelter in Jacksonville, and with the help of many DART volunteers, each cat has received the medical care it needed. All cats will be spayed and neutered. As the months have passed, the cats have improved, and are feeling much better. Healthy, and given a clean bill of health, the ASPCA has a huge cat adopt-a-thon planned sometime in August in select locations throughout the state. Possible locations may be in Jacksonville, Sarasota, and West Palm. Keep a watch out for the upcoming event on the ASPCAs website at www.aspca.org. Of course, you can adopt a cat or kitten locally. Just visit the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County or Animal Services, located in Lake Panasoffkee. Both facilities have a wide selection of kitties needing homes. Sumter DART is privileged to work with the ASPCA as one of their supporting agencies. Assisting with transporting animals to safety, along with providing trained personnel, Sumter DART is doing its part to help animals in need. 700 cats rescued, need homes Linda Graves Humane Society SAR003086 TO PLACE A CLASSIFIED AD, CALL TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 MONDAY-FRIDAY 8:00 AM-5 PM (DEADLINE 11:00 AM TUESDAY) CLASSIFIEDS CANCELLATIONSAdvertisements may be canceled as soon as results are obtained.

Behind the women, student Dave Hugoman prepares the pine needle tea. It was definitely a shared meal, as students emptied all their bags of wild findings into the same colander to create a large bowl of salad. After putting their greens and berries together, students settled in to shell nuts, while class leaders began preparing the foods washing the greens, boiling the stinging nettle root and simmering pine needle tea. The root from the stinging nettle cooks up and tastes like a potato.

Take a walk on the wild side and head out to the woods for some incredible edibles a tasty tuber, wild young leaf salad, wild berries and protein nuts all straight from the wilds of a Florida forest or in this case, the wilds of a Florida state park. Dozens of students spent a couple of hours with Kristen Wood of Dade Park, hiking along the edge of the woods and collecting lunch from the wilds for their Incredible Edibles class. They showed students which leaves, berries and grasses could be used for flavoring or to toss up a salad, what treat was buried deep below a stinging nettle and how to steep up some pine tea. Students learned about the paw-paw plant, stinging nettles or a seven-minute itch and the cabbage palm, as well as the very messy, but very delicious red mulberries; winged sumac and the wax myrtle used for making candles. Volunteer Judy Bradley picked young long-needle pine and steeped it for fresh pine tea sweetened with Tupelo honey. Wood used posthole diggers to show the class how to get below a stinging nettle. She had to dig at least two feet down, but she eventually found the main root part and it was at least three inches Thursday, August 2, 2012Volume 126 Number 31Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY InsidePet of week Accused shooter was former teacher The Cape Coral man accused last week of shooting and killing a door-to-door salesman outside his home is a former Sumter County school teacher who was once arrested for threatening a SECO meter reading with a gun. Kenneth Roop, 52, self employed, was arrested Wednesday, July 25, for the shooting death of Nicholas Rainey, 30, of Fort Myers, a salesman for Blue Ribbon Steak & Seafood. Rainey was delivering food outside Roops Cape Coral home when the shooting happened, according to Cape Coral police. Roop, a former teacher and coach at South Sumter High School, has been arrested for seconddegree murder, according to Cape Coral police Lt. Tony Sizemore. Police say that there was a confrontation between the two men in the driveway outside Roops home. Rainey was shot during the confrontation and died at the scene. The Cape Coral Police Department grieves with the Rainey family at this time, said Sizemore. Our number one priority now is to partner with our colleagues at the State Attorneys Office for a successful prosecution and to bring justice to the victim and his family. Roop was a teacher in the Sumter County school system from August 1995 until his resignation in May 2005, according to School Supt. Rick Shirley. The majority of his teaching career in Sumter County was spent at South Sumter High School where he taught environmental education and earth sciences, according to Shirley. He also coached the basketball and track teams. Roop also was a teacher a South Sumter Middle School for a short time. See BITE, Page 19 Local robberies may be linked Sumter County sheriffs detectives believe that a Saturday armed robbery at a Webster convenience store may be connected to a similar robbery last week at a Nobleton convenience store. The suspects in both robberies have similar descriptions and were dressed in similar attire, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The convenience stores are about 15 miles apart. The first robbery happened at the Circle K convenience store in the 9300 block of CR. 476 W. in Nobleton. A surveillance video taken at the store shows the two suspects entering about 10:53 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24, according to a sheriffs office press release. Both suspects were wearing dark-colored clothing that consisted of long black pants, black hoodies, black shoes, and black bandannas that covered their facial area. One of the suspects, who brandished a silver colored handgun during the robbery, is described as 5 foot 11, muscular build, weighing approximately about 160 to 170 pounds and wore a hoodie shirt that displayed lettering consistent with the design style of an Echo Unlimited brand sweatshirt. The second suspect, carrying a red bag, is described as a heavyset black male, approximately 5 foot 8, weighing 210 to 220 pounds. The suspects left the store and fled on foot towards County Road 647.

Thats because he got a call about a 1915 license plate that was found on the site one of only 10 that was ever made. Westphals collection isnt just a few plates from various areas, but rather thousands, displayed on special wall panels and in a climate controlled building. The 1915 porcelain plate was found near the fire hydrant, across the street from Evans Ace Hardware, Westphal said. Westphal is a serious collector and people in the area know him. As a matter of fact, he learned about the tag through someone from the countys tag office. As for the old tags, he said A lot of people throw them in the drawer. While the worker who sold it to him was contemplating keeping it, Westphal is a firm believer that money talks and that the tag is now with its rightful owner. He paid the finder $500 for the tag. I got the call at 9:15 that morning and by 4 p.m. it was in my hand, he said, adding with humor,I wouldnt have been able to eat supper if I hadnt found it by then. The tag is one of eight Sumter County porcelain tags that I have. The porcelains were only produced over a period of five years, as far as we know. There could be a 1912, but no one has ever seen or heard of one, he said. Westphal explained that the county was very poor at the time and its possible something else was used to create tags. There were 20 porcelain tags made for Sumter County and they were made from 1912 to 1917. Of those made, they know there were three from 1913 and I have two of the three. There were four in 1914, of which he has one, one made in 1916 and two made in 1917. The most were made in 1915 there were 10. In 1918 they became state issue and the porcelain tag was done, Westphal said. New Bushnell park yields old license tag Westphals collection isnt just a few plates from various areas, but rather thousands, displayed on special wall panels and in a climate controlled building.

He also was a 1977 graduate of Wildwood High School, Shirley said. During his employment with the school district, Roops employment records did not contain any problems or issues, according to Shirley. But a month after he resigned from the school district, he was arrested by the Sumter County Sheriffs Office and charged with improperly exhibiting a firearm. Roop was arrested June 24, 2005, following an incident earlier that month when he pointed a gun at SECO meter reader, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. A jury found Roop not guilty of the charge in October that same year, according to court records. The incident happened on June 9, 2005, when a SECO employee went to Roops Oxford home to read the electric meter, Caruthers said. The SECO employee said while she was reading the meter she heard someone say, Dont move, stay right there, Caruthers said. She looked up and saw a man pointing a gun at her. After explaining who she was, the employee said Roop lowered his gun and walked up the steps to go back inside his house and said, Read it. The employee called the sheriffs office after the incident because she was afraid Roop was going to shoot her, according to Caruthers. Sumter sheriffs detectives are continuing an investigation into recent thefts at the Bushnell Walmart Supercenter that resulted in the arrest of two Citrus County residents. On Sunday, July 22, Christopher N. Jones, 20, of Inverness, and Genevieve O. Davis, 19, of Hernando, were both arrested for felony retail theft. Investigators say that the pair removed two Vizio 32-inch televisions, valued at more than $400 from the Bushnell store. Surveillance video captured the pair entering the store and placing the two televisions in a shopping cart before exiting the store without paying for the items, according to a sheriffs office press release. They left with the televisions and were driving an orange colored Dodge Neon. Sumter sheriffs detectives were led to Davis after finding a 2005 Dodge Neon registered to her that matched the description seen leaving Walmart in surveillance video, according to the report. On Thursday, July 26, Sumter County detectives observed Jones and Davis in the Dodge Neon at the Inverness Walmart and called Citrus County deputies for assistance. The pair was arrested at 8:10 p.m. by Citrus County deputies and taken to the Citrus County Detention Center. Sumter Det. Brian Wilson interviewed the pair at the detention center and both confessed to committing the crimes. Both are being held on the charge of felony retail theft with their bond set at $2,000. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are anticipated. SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, AUGUST2, 2012, PAGEA3 Most Wanted Syed Alam, 25 2370 S.W.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, AUGUST2, 2012 Improperly applied fertilizers harmful to our water bodies As more people focus on their lawns and landscaping this time of year, the Southwest Florida Water Management District promotes Floridafriendly fertilizing practices. Florida-friendly fertilizing is an annual campaign encouraging residents to responsibly maintain their lawns. Recent studies have shown rising nitrate levels in many local water bodies can be traced to fertilizer. Nitrate is a form of nitrogen found in inorganic fertilizers. When fertilizer is applied correctly, the lawn absorbs the nitrogen. However, fertilizers applied improperly run off lawns and into local water bodies, harming water quality and threatening the plants and animals that depend on clean water for survival. Florida-friendly fertilizing emphasizes these tips: Use slow-release fertilizers. Always follow package directions. Dont fertilize before a heavy rain. Fertilize only when needed and only when grass is actively growing. Residents can visit www.WaterMatters.org/fertilizing for step-by-step instructions on fertilizing appropriately and to watch corresponding how-to-videos. Residents also can order a free Do-It-Yourself Guide to Florida-Friendly Fertilizing for more information. Fertilizing appropriately is one of the nine principles Florida-Friendly Landscaping, a set of guidelines developed by the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences to protect our natural resources while promoting beautiful landscapes. Robyn Felix Southwest Florida Water Management District NCAA Piling On Penn StateI am upset about the child abuse committed by Sandusky and the cover up by Paterno, Curley, Schulz and Spanier. The lives of many young children have been adversely impacted by these men. And that is my point. The five individuals were involved with these tragic events, not the assistant football coaches, not the football players, not the faculty and not the student body. I believe the NCAA president and executive board overstepped their authority by imposing very harsh penalties on the Penn State football program and by extension on the entire university. The penalties will needlessly decimate one of the premier athletic programs in the country and could debilitate the entire university. If the leaders of a corporation, e.g. president, vice president, commit a crime, are the junior level managers and hourly workers punished? If a parent commits a crime, are his/her children punished for the crime? The NCAA decided to use Penn State as a scapegoat example to thwart other university leaders from going astray. I think the NCAA should have stayed out of it and let the criminal and civil proceedings run their courses. The NCAA is persecuting innocent people. Donald A.

P aul and G erry McC ormic Wildwood Call FWC for issues with alligators Alligators are active during the warm-weather months, and theres a good chance that people who live around water will encounter these native creatures. Alligators are deceptively quick, both in and out of the water. If someone is bitten by an alligator, he or she should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Alligator bites can result in serious infections requiring specific antibiotic treatment, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officials. Avoid the risk of an alligator bite by not taking matters into your own hands or putting yourself in harms way. Call the FWCs Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286) to report any alligator you believe poses a threat to people, pets or property. If theres an issue with an alligator, call the FWC and let the experts take care of it, said FWC Lt. Scott Lee, Taylor County watch supervisor. We certainly dont want anyone getting hurt attempting to capture, kill or subdue an alligator. Taking an alligator without a permit is a violation of FWC rules, and anyone intentionally killing an alligator could be cited, Lee explained. The Statewide Nuisance Alligator Program (SNAP) uses contracted nuisance alligator trappers throughout the state to remove alligators that have become a problem. If an alligator is 4 feet or larger and the complaint meets other qualifying criteria, SNAP will issue a permit to a contracted nuisance alligator trapper authorizing the removal of the animal. In 2010, SNAP received 13,047 nuisance alligator complaints, resulting in the removal of 5,856 nuisance alligators. Here are some tips people can use to stay safer around alligators: Be aware of the possibility of alligators when you are in or near fresh or brackish water. Bites may occur when people do not pay close enough attention to their surroundings when working or recreating near water. Do not swim outside of posted swimming areas or in waters that might be inhabited by large alligators. Alligators are most active between dusk and dawn. Therefore, avoid swimming at night. Dogs and cats are similar in size to the natural prey of alligators. Dont allow pets to swim, exercise or drink in or near waters that may contain alligators. Never feed alligators its dangerous and illegal. Dispose of fish scraps in garbage cans at boat ramps and fish camps. Do not throw them into the water. Although you are not intentionally feeding alligators when you do this, the result can be the same. Observe and photograph alligators only from a distance. Leave alligators alone. Handling even small alligators can result in injury. State law prohibits killing, harassing or possessing alligators. For more information on alligators, visit MyFWC.com/Alligator.

Thanks to information gathering by one local resident and the plans of County Commissioner Doug Gilpin, the questions and concerns of Lake Panasoffkee residents will be the focus of a Tuesday, Aug. 7, meeting in the community. Called a listening session, the meeting is slated to begin at 6 p.m. in the Lake Panasoffkee Recreation Center, the listening session is just that, according to Gilpin. Over the course of several years Ive worked with individuals on issues and I wanted to give the community an opportunity, he said. He explained the meeting and open forum style will allow residents a chance to ask questions and voice concerns, noting some of the issues expected to be discussed are golf cart access and park usage and plans. I would like to get a feel for the community in regard to this water and sewer issue thats been talked about, he said. Gilpin will be accompanied by the countys administrator Bradley Arnold and other top management, he said. Lake Panasoffkee resident Patty Wall contacted the county administration office after being pulled over by police in her golf cart. Wall said she and dozens of other people were using their carts to travel from location to location in the community, but learned there were only three roads that are legally designated for golf cart use. I would like to see all the secondary roads approved, she said. Wall used to own a florist shop in the community and currently sells tie-dye shirts and works with Devereaux Kids. She estimates shes met 50 people she didnt know previously all from driving her golf cart around the community. She said travelling by cart seems to have brought a sense of community. Now aware of the laws, she said she is no longer travelling by cart, but would like to see the laws change or expand to allow the travel. She decided to contact the county to see about a meeting and said when other residents learned about her efforts, they began to share other information and concerns with her. In some cases, people have been concerned about dilapidated homes in their neighborhoods and animal control issues. Wall said she has been urging residents to take pictures and bring them to the meeting. She estimates shes talked to more than 75 people about the upcoming event and several say they are coming and bringing their neighborhood. Ive really taken an interest in this town and I love it, she said. The recreation center is at 1589 C.R. 459.

The robbers made off with an undisclosed amount of money and the two cashiers on duty at the time of the robbery were not injured. The Webster robbery happened at a very similar time and also involved two cloaked suspects armed with a similar weapon. The robbery happened at 10:25 p.m. on Saturday, July 28, at the Shop & Go on N. Market Street, in Webster, according to a sheriffs office report. In that robbery, two suspects, one armed with a silver semi-automatic pistol, entered the store demanding cash from the cashier, according to a sheriffs office report. Afterwards, both suspects fled the store on foot. Sheriffs K9s were called in and tracked the suspects west along County Road 478 before losing the suspects scent. Similar descriptions were given for the suspects in the Webster robbery. One suspect is described as approximately 6 foot tall, muscular build, weighing 170 to 180 pounds, wearing black shorts, black athletic shoes, and a red hoodie. He had a blue bandanna covering his lower facial area and was armed with a silver semi-automatic handgun. The second suspect is described as a heavyset black male approximately 5 foot, weighing 210 to 220 pounds wearing all black clothing that consisted of long black pants, black hoodie, black shoes, and a black bandanna that covered his lower facial area. There were two cashiers on duty at the time and neither was injured, according to the report. Sumter detectives are investigating similarities between both robberies and surveillance videos of the robberies have been posted on the sheriffs website for public viewing. If anyone has information regarding these robberies, contact Det. Derek Pike at the Sumter County Sheriffs Office at 569-1600, or Crimeline at 1-800-423TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Community joins in Back-to-School Luau There was a giant water slide, live music, free clothes and haircuts plenty of fun and games, food and more all part of the annual Lake Panasoffkee Church of the Fisherman Back to School Luau. Hosted by the church and the Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Project, the event was designed as a last summer bash before school starts and a way to show families in the community exactly what support is available in the area. Well over 1,000 residents showed up to take part in the fun and garner information for the future. Volunteers Sandy Parks and Tina Graves donated hours to give free haircuts to students, while families had an opportunity to browse for free clothes and books and garner information on local services and agencies.

viously. Gorby serves as the facilitator for Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Project, through Devereux Kids. She and church member Bridget Veal served as event coordinators for the luau. We were able to provide resources to over 1,100 attendees, which was double from what we were able to last year. The event shows the families in the Lake Panasoffkee area and surrounding areas they have a community that is supportive of their welfare and supportive of positive youth development, Gorby said. There were more than two dozens agencies, organizations or businesses represented, including the county extension office, Thomas E. Langley Medical Center, Dade Battlefield Park, Kids Central, parenting education, scouts, senior and family service agencies, library and utility services, churches, Sumter Christian School and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Gorby said theyve already seen results from the luau and additional people taking advantage of some of the resources. A lot of families were connected with the Lake Panasoffkee Cub Scout group. Several local residents also took advantage of free parenting classes offered at the church. The very next parenting class, after the luau, we had a significant increase in the number attending. Gorby said they received good feedback from Take Stock in Children too. They were working to bring more children into the program from Sumter County and also set up a speaking engagement, that will allow them to share information about the program. Gorby noted their appreciation for all the community partners and all the positive youth development vendors.

ROADSIDE BUNNY ...Grace notes Doing the Almighty happy dance Editors note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation again this week. This column is one of her favorites, first run in June 2008.Were doing the happy dance at my house these days. It started when, one day last week, I went to turn on the TV in the living room and it popped, which is never a good sound coming from a major appliance or electronic device. My husband had been pining for a flat-screen, high-definition TV for months and Ive balked at the idea. Our TV was good enough. But that morning good enough became dead. Later that day Barry called me at work and said, Before you start screaming, hear me out. (Note to male readers: Thats never a good way to start a conversation. Trust me on this one.) He called to say he bought a flat-screen, highdefinition TV. He had gone out with every intention of buying just a regular TV but had a momentary lapse of husbandly fear of wifely retribution. Honestly, I have nothing against flat-screen, highdefinition TVs. My only concern was size. I have a cabinet that a local cabinetmaker made me years ago and I didnt want a monster TV ruining the living room dcor. Barry assured me the one he bought would fit inside the cabinet. Crisis averted. And the Kennedys can live happily ever after. Also, we discovered, with a high-definition TV comes the need for a highdefinition cable box. As we were fiddling with it we noticed we got a bunch of premium movie channels that we didnt order. Barry called to cancel them and the lady at the cable company said we could watch free movies until they turned them off the next day. Saturday morning Evan Almighty, a modernday Noah and the ark story, was playing. As with Bruce Almighty, I love Morgan Freeman as God. Hes exactly as I imagine God to be patient, witty, winsome, yet unwavering in what he wants to do in a persons life. Throughout the movie, the main character, Evan, does a kind of jerky happy dance, and at the very end of the movie, after the big flood and after wrong has been righted and Evan is a hero because he built this crazy gigantic ark and saved his neighbors from drowning after a dam broke as a result of a crooked Congressmans shady dealings, he sees God under a tree on a hill. They talk and then God says, Its time do the dance. Evan says, Care to join me? and then they do this silly, jerky happy dance together and God disappears and a white dove with an olive branch in its mouth takes his place. Then, before the credits roll, Morgan Freeman appears on screen holding stone tablets and says, I now issue a new commandment: Thou shalt do the dance, and everybody in the cast and crew dance to C + C Music Factorys Everybody Dance Now. When Evan danced with God tears came to my eyes and I said, I want to dance with God! That hit something in me, something that felt true and right, and I sensed God, the real God not the Morgan Freeman God, say that I can dance with him that I do dance with him. That I am dancing with him. The life of faith really is that simple. Its not about keeping rules, because we cant keep them but Jesus kept them for us so we could be unburdened and unshackled and stripped of guilt and shame and freed up to dance with God our silly happy dances. For those who think the faith life is all about our obedience, it is but obedience comes as a result of the dancing and not as its cause. If you think God is cold and stern and demanding, youll never dance with him, despite your obedience and diligence. But if you dance first because hes invited you to, then youll obey his rules. Not always and not completely, but willingly. I believe nothing happens without a reason and I believe God wanted my husband to bring home a flat-screen, high-definition TV and a high-definition cable box so I could watch a free HBO movie with questionable theology but a great reminder that God smiles and he laughs and he says to his people, Everybody dance now!

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, AUGUST2, 2012, PAGEA13 000C6XX Early Voting August 4th-11th Primary Election is August 14th Wally Kurz and Peg Casey, organizers of We Ride for Kids, have been selected to receive the Sumter County Chamber of Commerces 2012 Community Hero Award at the fourth annual Red, White and Blue BBQ and Hob Nob on Friday, Aug. 5, at George Nahas Chevrolet, on State Road 44 in Wildwood. The Red, White and Blue BBQ is presented annually by the chambers Leadership Sumter participants and alumni to recognize outstanding public service employees as selected by their chiefs, as well as a civilian who has exhibited exceptional service to the local community. Adult tickets for the Red, White and Blue BBQ are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, and include an allyou-can-eat barbecued beef and chicken dinner, soft drinks and dessert. Beer and wine will also be available for purchase. Tickets for children ages 715 are $9 in advance, $12 at the door. Tickets can be obtained by calling the Sumter County Chamber at 352-793-3099 or e-mailing info@sumterchamber.org. Wally Kurz and Peg Casey of We Ride for Kids organized the first cycling event sponsored by The Villages to raise money for local youth programs. Wally and Peg were the driving force behind the event, spending countless hours mapping the course, gathering event sponsors and raffle donations, coordinating media, and organizing more than 300 participants from all over central Florida. Because of Wally and Pegs devotion and determination to make We Ride for Kids a success, the event raised $8,000 for Project Legacy and the Sumter County Youth Centers. We are extremely pleased to honor Wally and Peg Caseys tremendous efforts on behalf of Sumter Countys youth, said Chamber Executive Director Andrew Cripps. They are truly deserving of this award, and we are delighted to recognize their outstanding contribution to the development and enrichment of services to our countys young people. The chamber presented the Community Hero Award to Beverly Steele last year for her work on behalf of the Young Performing Artists, Inc., which helps young performing and visual artists and provide creative solutions to youth development. Valor Award nominations were received from the Sumter County Sheriffs Department, Sumter County Fire and Rescue, and Rural/Metro Ambulance. Sumter County Sheriff Bill Farmer nominated Sumter County Detention Center Sergeant James Reid for saving the life of an inmate. Reid was making his observation checks on February 11, 2012 when he discovered an inmate lying on the concrete bench with what appeared to be something around his neck. Reid observed the inmate was not breathing and, upon entering the cell, could not detect a pulse on the inmate. He place the man on the floor and began using an Ambu bag rescue breather until a pulse was detected and the inmate began to breathe on his own. While waiting for EMS, the inmate stopped breathing again, and Sgt. Reid again used the rescue breather until the inmate started breathing on his own and regained consciousness. Sumter County Fire and EMS nominated Lieutenant Damon Allen for the Valor Award. Deputy Chief Francis Ennist says Lieutenant Allen is characterized by his all-around abilities to perform, lead, instruct, assist and teambuild. He is always available and always involved. He strives to learn and strives even harder to share that knowledge with those around him. He is respected by all and serves as a mentor to those that he imparts knowledge or skills and abilities, said Deputy Chief Ennist. Rural/Metro Ambulance General Manager Christine Hill nominated Paramedic Christopher Cole and EMT Vonna Nutter for Valor Awards. On April 14, 2012 Cole and Nutter arrived on-scene at a single vehicle accident in which a 52-year-old male was trapped under his vehicle which had overturned and was on fire. The vehicle was down an approximate 10-foot embankment. The EMS crew initially attempted to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher. When the fire continued to spread, with the patient still conscious, the crew chose to place their own safety in danger and dragged the approximate 450-lb patient away from the vehicle until other responders arrived for assistance. Their choice to risk their own safety in the attempt to save this mans life is why Hill nominated them for the Valor Award. Those seeking more information about Red, White and Blue BBQ or the Community Hero Award should contact the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce at 352-793-3099. The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce is the primary business organization in Sumter County, Florida, representing more than 440 business members.

Dade Battlefield Society prepares for World War II commemoration at park Pertussis is a respiratory illness commonly known as whooping cough. It is a very contagious disease that is spread from person to person by coughing. Nationwide, as in Florida, there has been an increase in the number of pertussis cases. In 2012, 323 cases have been reported to state health departments in Florida, a doubling from cases reported the previous year. The number of cases of pertussis spikes cyclically. The last major increase in Florida (prior to this one) occurred in 2009. Pertussis causes uncontrollable, violent coughing which often makes it hard to breathe. After fits of many coughs, someone with pertussis often needs to take deep breathes which result in a whooping sound. Pertussis most commonly affects infants and young children, especially those that did not complete their primary vaccination series, and can be fatal, especially in babies less than 1 year of age. Pertussis immunity wanes after completion of the primary vaccination series in childhood. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention therefore recommends that persons receive a booster dose, ideally to persons at 11-12 years of age. If this booster dose was not given, the CDC recommends a one time booster dose be given as soon as possible to all adolescents and adults, including persons ages 65 and older. Pertussis vaccines are very effective in protecting you from disease. You should ask your healthcare provider about vaccination against Pertussis to protect yourself and for your family. The Sumter County Health Department may be reached at 352-569-3121 for more information. Health Department issues whooping cough warning

Also, country singer Jim Van Fleet former weatherman for Orlandos Fox 35, now Chief Meteorologist for WTSP in Tampa will return for the second Beef and Boogie Festival. Born and raised in Westland, Mich., Josh Gracins first public appearance was at an eighth grade talent competition where he sang Garth Brooks 1993 hit Standing Outside the Fire and managed to win over an audience full of dance music-loving peers. After high school, he enlisted in the Marines. About two years into his four-year term in the Marines, he saw the first American Idol show. Though he hadnt sung in a couple of years, he auditioned and was chosen as a finalist in the second year of the series, ultimately placing fourth. Gracins transition from reality show contestant to recording star began when he sang Rascal Flatts Im Movin On on an American Idol episode. The guys in Rascal Flatts happened to be watching the show on their tour bus that night. Bass player Jay DeMarcus, impressed with Gracins talent, called and put him in touch with Marty Williams, who had co-produced both the bands breakthrough album and its successful followup. That led to a record deal with Lyric Street, the same label that signed Rascal Flatts. Gracins self-titled debut album, featuring the first single I Want to Live, was released in 2004. Its second single, Nothin to Lose, reached No. 1 at country radio. Gracins highly-anticipated sophomore effort, We Werent Crazy, was released in 2008 and delivered title track, We Werent Crazy, the ballad Unbelievable (Ann Marie), written by Gracin about his wife, and fan favorite Favorite State of Mind. Gracin has lent his vocals to The Disney Songbook on When I See An Elephant Fly with Jim Brickman and the soundtrack to Herbie: Fully Loaded on Working for the Weekend.

PET OF THE WEEKCritter chatter The ASPCA is a well respected national humane organization that the Sumter Disaster Animal Response Logistics Team works closely with, providing life saving transports and trained personnel when needed. Since February of this year, the ASPCA along with 100 responders and DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) volunteers have been caring for 700 cats in north Florida. Stemming from complaints, a year long investigation had exposed the cats living in severe neglect conditions. Suffering from eye infections and upper respiratory diseases, the cats were living in filthy conditions. Emaciated and sick cats were housed with other cats, quickly transmitting diseases among each other. 29 deceased cats were discovered. With medical issues not addressed, and no spay and neuter program in place, the cats multiplied and the diseases spread. The cats quality of life was poor at best, and they suffered many diseases including the FIV virus. The ASPCA forensic teams Mobile Animal Crime Scene Investigation Unit was on site to document and collect evidence that has been used in the criminal case. The Investigations Division is a team of experts that assist in criminal investigations. When needed they provide expert testimony in legal procedures. The ASPCA has spent millions of dollars rescuing the 700 cats. They have set up a temporary shelter in Jacksonville, and with the help of many DART volunteers, each cat has received the medical care it needed. All cats will be spayed and neutered. As the months have passed, the cats have improved, and are feeling much better. Healthy, and given a clean bill of health, the ASPCA has a huge cat adopt-a-thon planned sometime in August in select locations throughout the state. Possible locations may be in Jacksonville, Sarasota, and West Palm. Keep a watch out for the upcoming event on the ASPCAs website at www.aspca.org. Of course, you can adopt a cat or kitten locally. Just visit the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County or Animal Services, located in Lake Panasoffkee. Both facilities have a wide selection of kitties needing homes. Sumter DART is privileged to work with the ASPCA as one of their supporting agencies. Assisting with transporting animals to safety, along with providing trained personnel, Sumter DART is doing its part to help animals in need. 700 cats rescued, need homes Linda Graves Humane Society SAR003086TO PLACE A CLASSIFIED AD, CALL TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 MONDAY-FRIDAY 8:00 AM-5 PM (DEADLINE 11:00 AM TUESDAY) CLASSIFIEDSCANCELLATIONSAdvertisements may be canceled as soon as results are obtained.

The tuber was boiled and sliced like a potato. More than two dozen students gathered, coming from around Central Florida and in one case, from Pennsylvania, to take the class. That was Teresa Jurich who enrolled with five other members of her family, including her husband Doug. Her daughter Vanessa Kunz lives in Zephyrhills and was looking for things to do when her parents came down for a visit. Kunz, her husband Darren and her daughter Christy Patterson all took the class. Mrs. Jurich is a county extension agent back in Pennsylvania and said she loved the idea of the classes. She was planning to take some of the ideas back with her.

Behind the women, student Dave Hugoman prepares the pine needle tea. It was definitely a shared meal, as students emptied all their bags of wild findings into the same colander to create a large bowl of salad. After putting their greens and berries together, students settled in to shell nuts, while class leaders began preparing the foods washing the greens, boiling the stinging nettle root and simmering pine needle tea. The root from the stinging nettle cooks up and tastes like a potato.
