More burglaries linked to suspects


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

One of two burglary sus-
pects remained in an Or-
lando hospital early this
week recovering from in-
juries he suffered last
week during a high-speed
chase as he and his brother
attempted to flee from law
enforcement officers.
Walter Lewis Hill IV, 24,
of Ft. Lauderdale suffered
a broken pelvis and two
broken legs when he and

Freedom of

speech

questioned


Cynthia D. Martin
BOB REICHMAN
Editor


Coleman City Council
Member Cynthia Martin
says it is a city resolution
aimed at suppressing her
freedom of speech.
Coleman Mayor Milton
Hill says the resolution is
nothing of the kind but
rather simply a means of
ensuring that information
released to the public as
being generated from city
officials is reviewed and
approved before it is re-
leased as a city document.
In a letter to the Sumter
County Times, Martin re-
quested the Times to in-
vestigate a resolution
adopted by the City Coun-
cil in May which she be-
lieves is aimed a
suppressing her freedom
of speech.
The resolution was ap-
proved at a specially
called City Council meet-
ing that month that Martin
was unable to attend.
"I did not know that
Coleman City Council had
rule over the Congress of
the United States or the
State of Florida Constitu-
tion," Martin claims.

proved by the majority of

his brother Bryce Chevelle
Hill, 19, also of Ft. Laud-
erdale, flipped their vehi-
cle trying to escape from
officers on Monday, Aug.
20, according to sheriff's
Capt. Kevin Hofecker.
Walter Hill remained in
Orlando Regional Medical
Center on Tuesday and will
be arrested on similar
charges to those of his
brother's, Hofecker said.
On Tuesday, Aug. 21,
Bryce Hill was released
from the hospital and
transported to the Sumter


County Detention Center
where he was charge with
theft, burglary, aggravated
battery with a deadly
weapon, kidnapping and
fleeing and eluding an offi-
cer. His bond was set at
$16,000.
The men are accused of
the Aug. 20 burglary and
beating of an Oxford man
when the victim caught
them in the act of burglar-
izing his home on County
Road 117, according to a
sheriff's office report.
The victim told officers


that when he arrived home
that day he saw a silver
Ford Taurus that had
pulled up to the rear of his
residence. When he en-
tered the home and was
checking around, he saw
hit in the face with a black
square object, according to
the sheriff's office report.
A physical altercation
ensued and while attempt-
ing to hold the suspect
down another suspect en-
tered the room and hit the
victim in the back of the
head with a baseball bat,


according to the report.
The victim was then or-
dered to the bathroom.
The suspects removed
numerous items from the
residence including a lap-
top computer, Sony Mp3
player and several team
jerseys, the report states.
The suspects fled just prior
to the deputy's arrival.
Emergency medical staff
arrived and treated the
man for scratches, bruises
and two golf-ball size

Stolen boats found, arrests made


BOB REICHMAN
Editor

The owner of a 15-foot
fiberglass boat called sher-
iff's deputies last week as
he reportedly saw two men
take his boat from its dock-
ing behind his home on
County Road 434, in Lake
Panasoffkee.
Sheriff's deputies re-
sponded to the complaint


about 4:05 p.m. on Tuesday,
Aug. 21, and by 5:36 p.m.
that same day, they had two
men and a third suspect in
custody, according to a
sheriff's office report.
Arrested in the incident
were Richard E. Winning-
ham, 43, and Christopher T
Hunt, 35, both of Lake
Panasoffkee and Ciara R.
Dorsey, 24, of Coleman.
All three suspects were
charged with burglary and


larceny Winningham was
additionally charged with
resisting an officer. Dorsey
was additionally charged
with carrying a concealed
weapon. All three suspects
were placed in the Sumter
County Detention Center.
Winningham was held
without bond because he
was out of jail on a pending
drug charge from a May

bumps on his head.
An alert was put out for
the suspects' vehicle as it
fled south on County Road
117.
The vehicle was spotted
in Wildwood and deputies
attempted an unsuccessful
stop.
The suspects fled south
on U.S. 301 ignoring law
enforcement vehicles in
pursuit.

pass several vehicles on
the right shoulder of the

2012 arrest, according to
sheriff's Capt. Kevin
Hofecker. Hunt's bond was
set at $7,000 and Dorsey's
was set at $7,500.
The arrests were made
after a perimeter was set
up around the main part of
Lake Panasoffkee and the
sheriff's water patrol unit
was called in to search for
the suspects, according to
Hofecker.
Deputies found the three
suspects near County Road
470 and Wilderness Drive
in a 2003 Dodge Ram truck,
he said. The 15-horse out-
board motor was in plain
view in the bed of the truck
and matched the descrip-
tion as the one on the
stolen boat.
While the motor was re-
covered, the victim's boat
was later discovered aban-
doned in a canal about 500


of the Ivy Smith Company,
at the south end of Wild-
wood on U.S. 301.
The suspects were then
taken to Orlando Regional
Medical Center.
The vehicle was im-
pounded by the sheriff's
office where it was
searched. A plastic jar full
of coins was found in addi-
tion to the other stolen
items, the report states.
Hofecker said the broth-
ers are also believed to be
involved in several other
burglaries in the county
and within the city of Wild-
wood.
Investigators are cur-
rently interviewing victims
of those crimes, he said.
Additional charges are ex-
pected.


yards from where the trio
was arrested, Hofecker
said.
When deputies con-
fronted the suspects, Win-
ningham ran from them.
He was taken into custody
after being stunned by a
Taser during a short pur-
suit.
The investigation deter-
mined that Dorsey was in-
volved in the theft because
her role consisted of driv-
ing the men to the area and
dropping them off so the
theft could be facilitated,
Hofecker said.
She was to return and
pick the two men up after
the theft had been com-
pleted.
Investigators also be-
lieve the trio may be in-
volved in a second boat
theft, Hofecker said. A par-
tially submerged boat was
also discovered in the area
and the suspects had ob-
jects that may have been
taken from that boat, he
said.
An investigation is con-
tinuing.


MARTIN

continued from Page 1

the board requires that
certain procedures be fol-
lowed before notifications
to the public are provided
that are representative of
city government.
The resolution states
that "Written communica-
tions with the public and
other entities or individu-
als, promulgated on be-
half of the City of Coleman
by any City Council Mem-
ber, shall, before dissemi-
nation, be approved
and/or authorized by the
City Council, the Mayor, or
in the Mayor's absence,


the President of the City
Council ..'.'
Martin says city leaders
approved the resolution in
response to her May re-
quest by flyer and in a
newspaper letter to the ed-
itor, to obtain input from
citizens about how to
reestablish and fund the
city's defunct library.
Martin said her request
to encourage public input
came after the mayor re-
quested her to compile a
method and budget to op-
erate the city library.
Martin said during that
special meeting in May, the
board claimed she "over-
stepped my bounds" and
should be written up and
fined.


Hill said Friday that the
board's intent is not to sti-
fle Martin's freedom of
speech as an individual
but rather to have a policy
in place to ensure that in-
formation related to city
officials and city-related
issues is reviewed and ap-
proved by proper authori-
ties.
"That's only profes-
sional courtesy," Hill said.
"We're not violating her
ability to speak I just want
to make sure things repre-
senting the city are ini-
tialed if it goes out the
public.
"We're trying to show
professionalism in the
City Council and in the
town."

opinion


Be involved in


new committee for


Lake Panasoffkee

here's something just beginning that residents
of Lake Panasoffkee should find interesting.
What started out as a request from a Lake Pana-
soffkee resident seeking some improvements in the
community is growing into something much more
than that.
The request resulted in a recent "Listening Session"
with County Commissioner Doug Gilpin and other
county representatives and members of the commu-
nity coming together to talk about community issues.
That resulted in the formation of the newly
spawned Lake Panasoffkee Improvement Association.
The committee's goals will be to help enrich the com-
munity.
It sounds like a great idea.
Lake Panasoffkee could use a shot in the arm to en-
courage a thriving and revitalized community.
It sounds like something the local residents really
should become involved in- there will likely be many
opinions as the committee grows, regarding what sort
of improvements will build a quality community. Resi-
dents will want to be involved in helping to make
those decisions.
An improved community can have very different
meanings to different people. For some, it could
merely mean a cleaner and better kept community.
For others, it could be a community that focuses on
increasing large development. For others still, it
could mean maintaining a small community atmos-
phere in the area.
Everyone will have different ideas about what con-
stitutes a thriving and healthy Lake Panasoffkee.
Don't be surprised by what plans may evolve down
the line if you aren't involved early- stay informed
now.
A rally is being planned for 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday,
Oct. 6, at the Lake Panasoffkee Recreation Park.
Guest speakers are scheduled and information
about the Lake Panasoffkee Improvement Association
will be provided.
This is likely to be an important gathering that will
determine in what direction this association will be
heading.




Of note



Donations help local


homeless persons


Persons needing help with
homeless issues will benefit
from an $885 donation made
by the Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship of Marion County
in Summerfield to The
Refuge at Jumper Creek, a
family assistance program in
Bushnell.
The Refuge, (www.
therefugejumpercreek. org/)
guided by Christian values,
provides emergency and
transitional housing with sup-
portive services such as men-
toring and life skills
education for those experi-
encing homelessness or those
who are at risk of homeless-
ness.
It serves single individuals
as well as parents and their
children.
The donation resulted from
the congregation's Fifth Sun-
day collection in July. Such
offertories are presented to a
designated local charity in
months with a fifth Sunday.
According to the Mid-
Florida Homeless Coalition,
on any given day in Sumter,
Citrus, and Hernando coun-
ties, an estimated 2,000 per-
sons are homeless.
This means some 400 chil-


dren are homeless on any
given day and likely receiving
their only meal of the day at
school and often receiving no
meals on the weekends.
More than 85 percent of
homeless persons in the area
identify employment, finan-
cial and family problems as
the issue for their episode

Letters to the editor


Knights Of Columbus
Ladies Auxiliary give
school supplies
It was a day like any other
day here in Bushnell, Florida
except for one detail that was
very important to the Ladies
Auxiliary of St. Lawrence
Catholic Church who had
been busy collecting much
needed school supplies for
our back to school students
here in Sumter County.
Our President Laura Lego
delivered school supplies and
backpacks to several students
at Webster Elementary. It was
a day that brought joy not only
to the members of the Ladies
Auxiliary but most important
it brought smiles and many
thanks from the students that
received the back packs filled
with school supplies.
For some, making it easier
for students to succeed in
their education is an invest-
ment in the future that pays
extraordinary dividends for
society. Providing young peo-
ple with the tools of learning
ensures that the current eco-
nomic downturn does not di-
minish those returns.
Others may view their sup-
port for students in struggling
families at a more personal
level, repaying thoughtful acts
of anonymous generosity from
their own school days.
Each approach is very
much in the spirit of recogniz-
ing we are all in this together.
The need for help is great
and this is an opportunity to
help kids who might other-
wise have no way of getting
the necessary supplies for the
new school year, especially in
the current economy when
families are struggling to
meet their basic needs
Giving back to our commu-
nity is very important to the
Ladies and they worked very
hard in getting donations of
school supplies to that we
thank all that donated, it
means that we are helping
our youngest community
members get the solid start
they need to excel in their
studies.
Ladies Auxiliary

Turning 75 in September
The Wildlife and Sport Fish
Restoration Program turns 75
this September It is likely you
haven't even heard of this
program, but people every-
where who care about fish
and wildlife conservation
should be celebrating this an-


niversary. Without question,
this is one of the most highly
successful user-funded/pub-
lic-benefit conservation pro-
grams in our nation's history.
It all began back in 1937
when hunters, joining with
vendors of hunting equip-
ment, approached the U.S.
Congress to collect revenue
from the sale of outdoor
equipment and products to be
used solely for the enhance-
ment of wildlife conservation.
Wildlife Restoration funds
have been critical to estab-
lishing healthy populations
and habitats for many wildlife
species, including the wild
turkey, white-tailed deer and
black bear just to name a few.
These funds are essential to
providing broader access and
opportunities for public hunt-
ing and wildlife viewing, mon-
itoring wildlife populations,
conducting practical wildlife
research, providing hunter
education, acquiring key
wildlife habitats and develop-
ing public shooting ranges.
Sport Fish Restoration
funds are used to provide
broader access for public fish-
ing and boating by construct-
ing boat ramps, docks and
fishing piers, conducting key
fisheries research, restoring
critical fisheries habitat, and
delivering educational pro-
grams targeting conservation
of fisheries and their habitats.
Not only is September the
75th anniversary of the
Restoration Fund, but Sep-
tember 1 is also one of our
saltwater license-free fishing
days. What a great opportu-
nity to introduce a non-angler
to the sport of saltwater fish-
ing. Florida is the Fishing
Capital of the World, and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is
proud to be partners with all
of the sportsmen, businesses
and government agencies that
help keep it that way.
As we enjoy the benefits
flowing from hunters and an-
glers and the outdoor industry
to fish and wildlife conserva-
tion and then back to every-
one who enjoys our plentiful
fish and wildlife resources,
let's all remember that for-
ward-thinking pioneers estab-
lished the Wildlife and Sport
Fish Restoration Program. It
indeed forms a strong circle
of stewardship and support
around fish and wildlife unri-
valed by any other conserva-
tion program in the world.

Helping Panasoffkee
What started out as a Lis-
tening Session where resi-
dents of Lake Panasoffkee
voiced their community con-
cerns has turned into an ever-
growing energy to make Lake
Panasoffkee the best commu-
nity in Sumter County.
The listening session was
called by Sumter County Com-
missioner Doug Gilpin in
early August, and a large
group of Lake Panasoffkee
residents showed up to ask
questions and share their con-
cerns. In addition to Commis-
sioner Gilpin, Sumter County
Administrator Bradley Arnold
and Public Works Director
Scott Cottrell also attended
the listening session. As a
spin-off of that meeting a
smaller group has continued
to meet to discuss how they
could make Lake Panasoffkee
a better place to live.
The group of concerned citi-
zens is in the process of form-
ing the Lake Panasoffkee
Improvement Association and
wants to kick off with a rally
that will welcome the resi-
dents of Lake Panasoffkee to
join in these efforts.
The rally is Oct. 6, from 6 to
8 p.m. at Lake Panasoffkee
Recreation Park, 1582 C.R.
459, Lake Panasoffkee.
There will be refreshments,
guest speakers, local busi-
nesses, prizes and other sur-
prises.
Guest speakers include:
Sumter County Commissioner
Doug Gilpin, Sumter County
Sheriff Bill Farmer, newly
elected Tax Collector Randy
Mask and Property Appraiser
Joey Hooten.
Come join us for a good old-
fashion community rally.
Lake Panasoffkee residents
we would really appreciate a
couple hours of your time,
please come out and see what
is going on in our community.
Everyone is welcome!

SI don't want a cheap funeral, but I can save a lot

of money by planning now...so why not?

I'm a person who plans ahead and I'm also pretty careful with
the money I make.
Since someday my family and I will need a reliable funeral home,
why not make my arrangements now and lock in a low price that I can
control?
The old saying is true: you can't take your money with you. But,
if I make my plans now I can make the decisions on all the details that
matter to me, including the cost, and that's like leaving more money
behind for my wife and kids.

Sumter sports


Raiders and Wildcats clash Friday night


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

There was some poetic
justice as Kiki Neal re-
turned a punt 68 yards for
a touchdown Thursday.
First, the special teams
jumpstarted the scoring.
South Sumter High went
on to score 24 points in the
half and beat Wesley
Chapel High 31-7 in a kick-
off classic.
Second, it was fitting that
Neal scored the first touch-
down.


The team needed a lift
from the free safety stand-
out.
Later, Raider running
back Max McClain scored
on a two-yard run with 6:51
left in the second period.
Raider kicker Wes Mohr
booted a 25-yard field goal
to boost the score to 17-0
with 4:59 left in the second
quarter.
Clay Simmons hit Gar-
rett McMullen for a 21-yard
touchdown pass on a swing
pass with 3:14 left in the
second quarter


This Friday, South Sumter opens the
football season by hosting Wildwood
High School at 7:30 p.m.


South Sumter wasn't
overwhelming in the exhi-
bition but won the game.
They took advantage of
three Wesley Chapel fum-
bles and Neal had one of
the recoveries.
"I thought we started
slow," said Raider head
coach Inman Sherman.
"We had storms Monday
and Tuesday and we didn't


get the reps. It looked like
we were real lethargic. It
looked like we had been
sitting out of the rain.
"They (the defense) are
great players. Special
teams, we have to do work
on. Offensively we have to
work on that.
"Defensively, I think
everybody played pretty
well. It looked like some of


our offensive linemen fi-
nally blocked in the third
or fourth series and it was
Colton Skipper and James
Daniel that blocked pretty
well. Possibly, Dillon Jones.
It's a work in progress.
Hopefully, next week, we
have some time out on the
field."
With the classic behind
them, South Sumter now
takes to the field for one of
the most popular games of
the football season.
This Friday, South
Sumter opens by hosting


Wildwood High School at

gathers on Thursdays at
Kenny Dixon Sports Com-

work the shared curricu-

After the students have
completed their work, the
families share a picnic
lunch and fellowship.
The group is a gathering
of Christian families who
strive to "glorify God and to
support one another in our
home school journey," Cin-
tron said.
Open to everyone, they
take time on Thursdays to
pray, gather prayer re-

They also work to help
each other when needed.
Along with their Thurs-

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12
(Legislative)

Ballot Title: STATE COURTS.-

Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary.
The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all
courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a
two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision
eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each
house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a
majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could
readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature
determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits
the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislature's prior approval. Under current
law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be
repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature.
Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a
majority vote of the legislators present.
Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees
provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to
confirmation. This revision requires Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the
appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the appointment, the judicial nominating
commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to fill the same
vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any
time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed
confirmed and will take office.
The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution
to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge.
Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by
the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further
proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of
Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may
request, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the
commission's possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision
requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives
but provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of
Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge.
This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications
Commission to conform to a prior constitutional change.
This revision also makes technical and clarifyingadditions and deletions relating to the selection of chief
judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive
conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.

ARTICLE VII
FINANCE AND TAXATION

SECTION 6. Homestead exemptions.-
(a) Every person who has the legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains thereon the
permanent residence of the owner, or another legally or naturally dependent upon the owner, shall be
exempt from taxation thereon, except assessments for special benefits, up to the assessed valuation of
twenty-five thousand dollars and, for all levies other than school district levies, on the assessed valuation
greater than fifty thousand dollars and up to seventy-five thousand dollars, upon establishment of right
thereto in the manner prescribed by law. The real estate may be held by legal or equitable title, by the
entireties, jointly, in common, as a condominium, or indirectly by stock ownership or membership
representing the owner's or member's proprietary interest in a corporation owning a fee or a leasehold
initially in excess of ninety-eight years. The exemption shall not apply with respect to any assessment roll
until such roll is first determined to be in compliance with the provisions of section 4 by a state agency
designated by general law. This exemption is repealed on the effective date of any amendment to this
Article which provides for the assessment of homestead property at less than just value.
(b) Not more than one exemption shall be allowed any individual or family unit or with respect to any
residential unit. No exemption shall exceed the value of the real estate assessable to the owner or, in
case of ownership through stock or membership in a corporation, the value of the proportion which the
interest in the corporation bears to the assessed value of the property.
(c) By general law and subject to conditions specified therein, the Legislature may provide to renters,
who are permanent residents, ad valorem tax relief on all ad valorem tax levies. Such ad valorem tax
relief shall be in the form and amount established by general law.
(d) The legislature may, by general law, allow counties or municipalities, for the purpose of their
respective tax levies and subject to the provisions of general law, to grant an additional homestead tax
exemption not exceeding fifty thousand dollars to any person who has the legal or equitable title to real
estate and maintains thereon the permanent residence of the owner and who has attained age sixty-five
and whose household income, as defined by general law, does not exceed twenty thousand dollars. The
general law must allow counties and municipalities to grant this additional exemption, within the limits
prescribed in this subsection, by ordinance adopted in the manner prescribed by general law, and must
provide for the periodic adjustment of the income limitation prescribed in this subsection for changes in
the cost of living.
(e) Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall receive a
discount from the amount of the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the veteran owns
and resides in if the disability was combat related, the veteran was a resident of this state at the time of
entering the military service of the United States, and the veteran was honorably discharged upon
separation from military service. The discount shall be in a percentage equal to the percentage of the
veteran's permanent, service-connected disability as determined by the United States Department of
Veterans Affairs. To qualify for the discount granted by this subsection, an applicant must submit to the
county property appraiser, by March 1, proof of residency at the time of entering military service, an
official letter from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs stating the percentage of the veteran's
service-connected disability and such evidence that reasonably identifies the disability as combat related,
and a copy of the veteran's honorable discharge. If the property appraiser denies the request for a
discount, the appraiser must notify the applicant in writing of the reasons for the denial, and the veteran
may reapply. The Legislature may, by general law, waive the annual application requirement in
subsequent years. This subsection shall take effect December 7, 2006, is self-executing, and does not
require implementing legislation.
(f) By general law and subject to conditions and limitations specified therein, the Legislature may

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You
might not like the sudden setback in
your plans. But keep that headstrong
Arian temperament in check and wait
for explanations. Things will begin to
clear up by week's end.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Enjoy the respite from your recent
hectic schedule, but be ready to plunge
into a new round of social activities. A
new contact holds much potential for
the future.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A
trusted colleague has news that could
change your perception of a current
workplace situation. What had seemed
unfair might prove to be highly favor-
able after all.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
You still need to watch what you say
and how you say it. What you assert
as honesty, others might perceive as
Crabbiness. Be patient. This difficult
period clears up by the weekend.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your
Royalness needs time away from the
limelight to catch up on things, from
tidying your desk to making those
calls you've put off. You're back in the
center of things by the weekend.
VIRGO (August23 to September22)
Honesty is the best policy, of course.
But you'll do better at achieving your
goals if you can be less aggressive and
more circumspect in how you phrase
your comments.

end shows improvement.

ply be your keen Scorpian sense warn-

how to deal with the opportunity that
has opened up for you.

by the weekend. Have fun.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febru-
ary 18) It's a good time to let those
recently pent-up emotions flow more
freely. Why not start by letting the
people you care for know how you
really feel about them?
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Resist offers, no matter how well-
intentioned, to help with a personal
decision. Only you know what must
be done, and you have the emotional
strength to follow through.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have a
talent for getting things done. You also
have a gift for bringing people togeth-
er in both personal and professional
relationships.

AUTOMOTIVE
ANSWERS
Automotive Q & A
by Tom Formanek
President
Q: What safety features can I find
on new Hyundais?

A: Many new Hyundais have
Active Front Head Restraints and
Electronic Stability Control as part
of the standard equipment ESC
is Accident Avoidance Technology
that the government has found could
save 10,000 lives per year!
Many new Hyundais have been
awarded a ***** 5 Star Safety
Rating from the NHTSA.

Q: How does Hyundai meet the
needs of our environmentally
conscientious customers?

A: Today's customers are more
conscientious of our delicate
environment. They would like our
children's future and our planet to
be a cleaner and safer world. The
Hyundai Sonata Hybrid fits those
needs perfectly. The Sonata Hybrid
not only gets excellent gas mileage,
it is one of the safest vehicles on
the road. Our 2012 Hybrid also has
a lifetime warranty on the batteries.
That alone meets dependability,
and a lower carbon footprint in our
landfills and our future!

players to attend 18 to 20
workouts. I think our condi-
tioning this summer has been
extremely important to our
success.
"Our attendance rate is
over 90 percent.
Sherman said not many
students transfer into the
area but many of his players
have excellent preparation
for prep football.
"John Kinley, the South
Sumter Middle School foot-
ball coach, has been instru-
mental in preparing these
players to come up and play
football," Sherman said.
The Raiders use the no-
huddle offense, a style of play
that puts pressure on de-
fenses. Many defenses can't
react fast enough and South
Sumter often scores on quick
strikes early in the game.
"We went to a no-huddle
because someone else, Or-
lando Lake Highland Prep,
was doing that to us," said
Sherman. "We started using


SUMTER COUNTY TIMES SUMTER COUNTY TIMES


it in 2000.
"We never huddle in prac-
tice."
Of course, the no-huddle
offense isn't a surprise to the
teams who scout or play the
Raiders.
"It probably is dependent
on who we are playing,"
Sherman said. "The success-
ful schools know they have to
get ready to defend it.
"The key goes right back to
practice. The teams have a
hard time adjusting when the
other team is already on the
line of scrimmage.
"We try to keep people
from huddling."
Another factor is that play-
ing football at South Sumter
has become family traditions
in many local families.
"I think it is a traditional
matter," Sherman said. "For
most of these kids their par-
ents or grandparents played
here. They are expected to
carry on the tradition."
Sherman also thinks that
being in a small town helps
the winning tradition. There
aren't many distractions in a
community like Bushnell and
a lot of players want to be


football heroes.
"Being in a small town is
where I prefer to be," he said.
"They don't have the distrac-
tions they do in bigger areas.
The dads, grandfathers and
uncles expect them to carry
on the tradition.
"We have a traditional type
family atmosphere. Most of
our coaches have been there
for at least 10 years.
"We have had a couple of
coaches who have gone on to
become head coaches.
"Most of our coaches like
myself prefer to live in a
small town."
When a team is likely to
win its district every year and
have a playoffrun, it's easy to
understand why Bushnell
area kids line up to sweat, hit
and try to become football
heroes.
Try he may but Sherman
has to take plenty of credit
for the fact that South Sumter
High football means winning
football to lots of people.
This year's Raiders may
have another district title
and 10 plus wins coming
their way.

LaBranche cherishes his



assistant coaches


Matt LaBrahche


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent


Matt LaBranche finds
today that he has some
knowledge and experience
now.
The 31-year-old native of
Flint, Michigan is in his
third year of coaching at
Wildwood High School in
Wildwood, Florida.
He doesn't have the 27
years of experience that
South Sumter High head
coach Inman Sherman has
but he has been through the
trenches of high school foot-
ball and he is still standing.
"The more time you have
put in, the more knowledge
you have," LaBranche said.
He pinpointed one area
where he has to be careful
as a head coach.
"You realize your assis-


tant coaches can be a huge
problem," he said. The pre-
vious coaches (Matthew
Thompson and Robert Lind-
sey) had problems holding
on to their assistants."
One has to figure that
LaBranche will be holding
onto his coaches very dearly
The assistant coaches are:
Matthew Davin, assistant
head coach; offensive coor-
dinator Mike Hensley; Joey
Foucha, secondary; David
Adams, offensive line. Troy
Field, defensive line; Jor-
dan Adams, linebackers;
and Demetrius McKenzie,
quarterbacks and running
backs. Davin also works
with receivers and special
teams.
LaBranche took over the
team from Thompson in
2010 and the Wildcats were
6-4. In 2011, the team was 6-
5 and runnerup to the Vil-


lages in Class 1A-District 8.
While LaBranche has to
hope for that breakout year
with the big wins, he is
working to maintain the
winning approach at Wild-
wood High School.
The 2012 version of the
Wildwood Wildcats will be
anchored by Taylor Shaw
and Bryan Mathews on the
defensive line. They remain
in the same district and will
face the Villages in the final
regular season game. They
open up the season with
archrival South Sumter
High.
Winning or losing can
come down to keeping play-
ers healthy and out of trou-
ble.
He has to be grateful for
those assistant coaches.
They just may be the key to
the season.

LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

If anyone wants South
Sumter High head coach
Inman Sherman to starts
smiling, he only has to ask
him about the 2012 football
team.
...- He is expecting this team
: to have one of the strongest
defenses ever seen at Bush-
nell and the team just may
have a long run in the play-
offs.
Sherman has a 27-year
* coaching record of 222-103
and this team looks like it
will rough up some teams
along the way to a season of
10 or more victories.
One thing Sherman is
proud to point out is that
many of the players have en-
dured some of the darkest
days of South Sumter's foot-
ball life.
"What's good about them is


they stuck with it," Sherman
said. "Some of these kids had
to play through a 2-9 season
(2010) and a 3-7 season (2009).
It wasn't much fun around
here.
"They stayed with the pro-
gram. They were mentally
tough. I am proud of them be-
cause they are not just good
football players but good
kids. They don't cause many
problems. I think that part of
the reason for that is that in
this community; people won't
let the kids get away with
much. The upperclassmen
will correct the younger
ones."
Sherman has 21 seniors on
his 61-person varsity roster.
One player no one can ig-
nore is senior free safety
Keke Neal. The 6-foot-1, 205-
pound athlete has already
committed to playing at the
University of Florida.
There are several others


on the team who are consid-
ering scholarship offers from
major colleges.
Sherman says this team is
very fast.
South Sumter has already
impressed many. MaxPreps
has them ranked 383rd in the
nation and 35th in Florida.
They also rank them fourth in
Class 4A right behind peren-
nial powerhouse Jack-
sonville Bolles.
Under the leadership of
Sherman, South Sumter High
has been synonymous with
winning high school football.
Many schools are envious
of their record and would
love to have a similar pro-
gram with all the success that
goes with it.
South Sumter consistently
shows teams that a small
school can produce winning
football.
The Raiders have been
under the head coaching of


Sherman since 1984. During
that period, South Sumter
High has had a record of 222-
103 in that time. That in-
cludes 13 district titles, five
regional titles and a second
place finish in the Class 2A
state one year.
The team lost in the state
finals in 2005 to Hollywood
Chaminade and the team is a
regular in the Class 4A Top 10
polls.
One former Raider, Clint
"Boo" Hart is now a starting
strong safety for the San
Diego Chargers of the Na-
tional Football League. Hart
was named Charger NFL
Man of the Year for his char-
itable work in the community.
He just happens to be the
older brother of Keke Neal.
Earl Everett and Ben Mof-
fitt are former Raiders who
sought employment in the
NFL. Moffitt signed as a free
agent with the Houston Tex-


ans.
South Sumter High has
had a number of All Staters.
All Stater Kendall Smith
was the starting strong side
linebacker for Florida State.
Another All Stater, Richard
Kelly, played for the Univer-
sity of Florida.
South Sumter is a marvel
of success.
Though he would defer
credit to others, much of the
reason for the success goes
back to Sherman, a modest
man.
Sherman, 56, was an Army
"brat." His family settled in
London, Kentucky. He played
college football at Eastern
Kentucky University. Sher-
man moved down in 1984 and
has been in Bushnell ever
since.
"I think we have estab-
lished a consistent tradition,"
said Sherman. "The consis-
tency in coaching has been


RAiS


Inman Sherman
established. Our kids work
very hard."
Summer conditioning is a
major reason for the Raiders
success.
"Traditionally, we start our
summer program just after
July 4," Sherman said. "We
run it 6-8:30 Monday through
Thursday. We require our

head coach; offensive coor-
dinator Mike Hensley; Joey
Foucha, secondary; David
Adams, offensive line. Troy
Field, defensive line; Jor-
dan Adams, linebackers;
and Demetrius McKenzie,
quarterbacks and running
backs. Davin also works
with receivers and special
teams.
LaBranche took over the
team from Thompson in
2010 and the Wildcats were
6-4. In 2011, the team was 6-
5 and runnerup to the Vil-


lages in Class 1A-District 8.
While LaBranche has to
hope for that breakout year
with the big wins, he is
working to maintain the
winning approach at Wild-
wood High School.
The 2012 version of the
Wildwood Wildcats will be
anchored by Taylor Shaw
and Bryan Mathews on the
defensive line. They remain
in the same district and will
face the Villages in the final
regular season game. They
open up the season with
archrival South Sumter
High.
Winning or losing can
come down to keeping play-
ers healthy and out of trou-
ble.
He has to be grateful for
those assistant coaches.
They just may be the key to
the season.

LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

If anyone wants South
Sumter High head coach
Inman Sherman to starts
smiling, he only has to ask
him about the 2012 football
team.
...- He is expecting this team
: to have one of the strongest
defenses ever seen at Bush-
nell and the team just may
have a long run in the play-
offs.
Sherman has a 27-year
* coaching record of 222-103
and this team looks like it
will rough up some teams
along the way to a season of
10 or more victories.
One thing Sherman is
proud to point out is that
many of the players have en-
dured some of the darkest
days of South Sumter's foot-
ball life.
"What's good about them is


they stuck with it," Sherman
said. "Some of these kids had
to play through a 2-9 season
(2010) and a 3-7 season (2009).
It wasn't much fun around
here.
"They stayed with the pro-
gram. They were mentally
tough. I am proud of them be-
cause they are not just good
football players but good
kids. They don't cause many
problems. I think that part of
the reason for that is that in
this community; people won't
let the kids get away with
much. The upperclassmen
will correct the younger
ones."
Sherman has 21 seniors on
his 61-person varsity roster.
One player no one can ig-
nore is senior free safety
Keke Neal. The 6-foot-1, 205-
pound athlete has already
committed to playing at the
University of Florida.
There are several others


on the team who are consid-
ering scholarship offers from
major colleges.
Sherman says this team is
very fast.
South Sumter has already
impressed many. MaxPreps
has them ranked 383rd in the
nation and 35th in Florida.
They also rank them fourth in
Class 4A right behind peren-
nial powerhouse Jack-
sonville Bolles.
Under the leadership of
Sherman, South Sumter High
has been synonymous with
winning high school football.
Many schools are envious
of their record and would
love to have a similar pro-
gram with all the success that
goes with it.
South Sumter consistently
shows teams that a small
school can produce winning
football.
The Raiders have been
under the head coaching of


Sherman since 1984. During
that period, South Sumter
High has had a record of 222-
103 in that time. That in-
cludes 13 district titles, five
regional titles and a second
place finish in the Class 2A
state one year.
The team lost in the state
finals in 2005 to Hollywood
Chaminade and the team is a
regular in the Class 4A Top 10
polls.
One former Raider, Clint
"Boo" Hart is now a starting
strong safety for the San
Diego Chargers of the Na-
tional Football League. Hart
was named Charger NFL
Man of the Year for his char-
itable work in the community.
He just happens to be the
older brother of Keke Neal.
Earl Everett and Ben Mof-
fitt are former Raiders who
sought employment in the
NFL. Moffitt signed as a free
agent with the Houston Tex-


ans.
South Sumter High has
had a number of All Staters.
All Stater Kendall Smith
was the starting strong side
linebacker for Florida State.
Another All Stater, Richard
Kelly, played for the Univer-
sity of Florida.
South Sumter is a marvel
of success.
Though he would defer
credit to others, much of the
reason for the success goes
back to Sherman, a modest
man.
Sherman, 56, was an Army
"brat." His family settled in
London, Kentucky. He played
college football at Eastern
Kentucky University. Sher-
man moved down in 1984 and
has been in Bushnell ever
since.
"I think we have estab-
lished a consistent tradition,"
said Sherman. "The consis-
tency in coaching has been


RAiS


Inman Sherman
established. Our kids work
very hard."
Summer conditioning is a
major reason for the Raiders
success.
"Traditionally, we start our
summer program just after
July 4," Sherman said. "We
run it 6-8:30 Monday through
Thursday. We require our

players to attend 18 to 20
workouts. I think our condi-
tioning this summer has been
extremely important to our
success.
"Our attendance rate is
over 90 percent.
Sherman said not many
students transfer into the
area but many of his players
have excellent preparation
for prep football.
"John Kinley, the South
Sumter Middle School foot-
ball coach, has been instru-
mental in preparing these
players to come up and play
football," Sherman said.
The Raiders use the no-
huddle offense, a style of play
that puts pressure on de-
fenses. Many defenses can't
react fast enough and South
Sumter often scores on quick
strikes early in the game.
"We went to a no-huddle
because someone else, Or-
lando Lake Highland Prep,
was doing that to us," said
Sherman. "We started using


SUMTER COUNTY TIMES SUMTER COUNTY TIMES


it in 2000.
"We never huddle in prac-
tice."
Of course, the no-huddle
offense isn't a surprise to the
teams who scout or play the
Raiders.
"It probably is dependent
on who we are playing,"
Sherman said. "The success-
ful schools know they have to
get ready to defend it.
"The key goes right back to
practice. The teams have a
hard time adjusting when the
other team is already on the
line of scrimmage.
"We try to keep people
from huddling."
Another factor is that play-
ing football at South Sumter
has become family traditions
in many local families.
"I think it is a traditional
matter," Sherman said. "For
most of these kids their par-
ents or grandparents played
here. They are expected to
carry on the tradition."
Sherman also thinks that
being in a small town helps
the winning tradition. There
aren't many distractions in a
community like Bushnell and
a lot of players want to be


football heroes.
"Being in a small town is
where I prefer to be," he said.
"They don't have the distrac-
tions they do in bigger areas.
The dads, grandfathers and
uncles expect them to carry
on the tradition.
"We have a traditional type
family atmosphere. Most of
our coaches have been there
for at least 10 years.
"We have had a couple of
coaches who have gone on to
become head coaches.
"Most of our coaches like
myself prefer to live in a
small town."
When a team is likely to
win its district every year and
have a playoffrun, it's easy to
understand why Bushnell
area kids line up to sweat, hit
and try to become football
heroes.
Try he may but Sherman
has to take plenty of credit
for the fact that South Sumter
High football means winning
football to lots of people.
This year's Raiders may
have another district title
and 10 plus wins coming
their way.
