Thursday, December 6, 2012Volume 126 Number 49Established 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 Inside B OB R EICHMAN Editor See RIFLE Page 5 A super school superintendent Sumter County School District Superintendent Richard Rick Shirley was selected as Floridas 2013 Superintendent of the Year by the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS). Shirley was formally recognized in Tampa during the joint meeting of FADSS and the Florida School Boards Association last week. Shirley said Tuesday that it was a humbling experience to be selected for the honor in front of his peers. Shirley was first elected Sumter County schools superintendent in 1996 and is now entering his fifth term. Obviously its an honor to be selected from 67 school superintendents and they all do a really good job, Shirley said. To be selected to represent them at a nation level is an honor that I never expected to achieve. Shirley credits the school district staff and the School Board members for contributing to the honor. I try to never forget that accomplishments and achievements are made through quality people and our school district is blessed. In addition to his 16 years of service as a school superintendent, Shirley has dedicated 21 years of service to public education as a middle school principal (three years), an elementary school principal (seven years), a curriculum assistant (four years) and one of the toughest, yet most rewarding jobs a public school teacher (seven years). Ricks background and path to the role of superintendent is grounded in first-hand experience, knowledge and a dedication to always make decisions that are in the best interests of students, Florida Superintendent of the Year Rick Shirley (center), with Sumter County Schools, flanked by FADSS CEO Bill Montford (left) and FADSS president and Highlands County Schools Superintendent Wally Cox.

C andy flew as princesses waved. Dancers danced, twirlers twirled and musicians played. The Grinch was trying to steal Christmas and even Santa arrived, with three of his eight reindeer. For the children and adults along the streets in Wildwood, it was holiday fun as the annual Christmas parade passed by last Saturday afternoon. The fun started at just after 3 p.m., with the sound of sirens and Christmas music. One ambulance was even decked out in garland and bows. The line of entries included something for everyone, from police, ambulance and fire units to motorcycles, cars, trucks and larger floats. PSL Construction took the Best Commercial float with their Whoville experience, including the Grinch dragging a sled of Christmas toys up the cliff and away from their rightful owners. Winners of the 2012 parade were: Camp Wildwood Equestrian Team for Best Animal entry; Pentecostal Gosen A&O, the South Sumter Royal Queens Court and Santa Claus were in a three-way tie for Best Non-Commercial float; PSL Construction took Best Commercial and Best All Around; Gem Club took Best Car/Truck; Villages Twirlers & Drum Corp for Best Walking/Twirling and the Wildwood Middle High School Band for Best Band/Marching.

P AGE A4SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 6, 2012 Read the Bill of Rights On December 15, 2012 host or assemble friends and family for dinner. After dinner celebrate the Bill of Rights by reading them out loud in unison or taking turns. The out loud part is important. I feel most will receive a amazing feeling as the virtually sacred words are spoken. When you complete the reading discuss the health of the Bill of Rights. In many countries you can be arrested for doing this. Bill of Rights Day is a message to government that we people are the rulers and government is the servant. Thank You Vernon Johns Sumter County From Fire & EMSSumter County Fire & EMS responded to brush fires on C.R. 222 near C.R. 209 on Thursday Nov. 29, at approximately 11 a.m., and another on Saturday Dec. 1, on C.R. 209 near Camp Wildwood. Both fires quickly became wind driven, stretching the capabilities of the first arriving fire crew. Mutual aid assistance was requested from the Villages Public Safety Department and the Florida Forest service on both fires; which were quickly contained without any structures being threatened. Citizens are reminded to be extremely careful with open flames or discarding cigarettes, due to the drying conditions and changing winds that occur this time of year. The exact cause of both fires have yet to be identified. As a reminder, Sumter County Fire Rescue is now identified as Sumter County Fire & EMS, to better reflect the role we serve to the community.

Being eco-friendly is often the least of a busy familys concerns, but you may be surprised by the benefits that your family can enjoy from greening your holiday season. The Department of Environmental Protection recommends these ten easy tips that can help make your holidays not only more costefficient and eco-friendly, but fun and stress-free as wel. Use green cleaners. When preparing for holiday guests, trade in harsh household cleaners for cleaners that are safer for family health and the environment. Purchase LED light strands, which require less energy. Instead of buying holiday treats with paper wrappers, try making fun, homemade treats that do not require wrapping or that can be placed in reusable containers. Use cloth napkins and reusable utensils in place of disposable paper and plastic alternatives these may require washing, but they will save you money, conserve water and reduce waste. Make your holiday meal sustainable and boost your local economy by shopping for ingredients at a local farmers market, co-op or u-pick farm. Create nutrient-rich compost for your windowsill or backyard garden from your holiday meal leftovers. Buy recycled wrapping paper and holiday cards, and be sure to recycle again after use. Use old newspapers or butcher paper and let the kids draw their own holiday designs for a fun, eco-friendly holiday craft. Or instead of wrapping gifts, set up the toys so that the kids can play with them right away rather than unwrapping and setting them up. Create holiday decorations such as ornaments with old greeting cards, garlands made from strung popcorn or cranberries, and potpourri made from spices such as cinnamon and cloves. And remember: dont throw decorations away; store them for use during next years festivities! Visit your local Florida State Park and enjoy the holiday lights or seasonal festivals; its an affordable alternative to more costly weekend outings. The holidays are a great time of year to start implementing easy and sustainable ways to decorate and celebrate. There are lots of easy ways to reduce waste, reuse and recycle while having fun and saving money at the same time. By the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. For more green tips, visit the Departments website at www.dep.state.fl.us Some easy ways to green your holidays Fatalities on Floridas roadways decreased in 2011 by nearly 2 percent adding up to a 32-percent reduction in deaths on Floridas roadways since 2005. The fatality rate per mile traveled in 2011 held steady at its all-time low, first reached in 2010. Those are some of he findings in the recently released 2011 Florida Traffic Crash Statistics Report by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The agency produces the report annually with data from the detailed traffic crash reports submitted by state and local law enforcement agencies. Traffic crashes are largely avoidable, and so I would urge drivers to give their full attention to the road when they are behind the wheel, said Julie L. Jones, DHSMV Executive Director. The Department strives to change driving behaviors and save lives. Here are some report highlights: Fatalities as a result of traffic crashes on Florida roadways decreased between 2010 and 2011 by nearly 2 percent going from 2,444 to 2,400, respectively. During the past six years, fatalities have dropped every year from 3,533 in 2005 to 2,400 in 2011, which is a 32-percent reduction. The state mileage death rate (the number of deaths per 100 million miles traveled) was 1.25 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled in 2011. That is the same rate as 2010 and is the lowest since the state began to calculate the rate in 1968. Motorcyclist and passenger fatalities increased between 2010 and 2011 by approximately 18 percent from 383 to 451, respectively. Bicyclist fatalities increased between 2010 and 2011 by almost 58 percent from 76 to 120, respectively. Fatalities of teen drivers and passengers increased between 2010 and 2011 by 7 percent from 144 to 154, respectively. The full statistics, including information by county, are available online at http://flhsmv.gov/html/safety.html under Traffic Crash Facts. The 2011 report is condensed due to several factors, including the change in the crash form used by law enforcement, which, when fully integrated into the data, will provide more detailed data than previous years. The Department will be changing the way it offers the report. Beginning in the spring of 2013, the public will be able to get real-time, 24-hour-a-day crash data via a dynamic Web portal. The portal is being developed by DHSMV and Appriss, a company that specializes in providing law enforcement agencies software to collect and distribute crash data. The 2011 Florida Traffic Crash Statistics Report is the last static report the Department will publish.

One of the bullets struck the road by where the victim was standing. A second shot was fired and the victim fled to the residence to take cover. Bivins had reportedly called the man about 6:30 p.m. saying that he was going to blow his head off when he saw him, Caruthers reported. The two men reportedly were feuding about a woman. Deputy Lt. Zeke Shaw was the first officer to arrive and approached Bivins based on a description of the suspect. Bivins at that point was walking on Orange Avenue, Caruthers said. Bivins then reportedly turned around and pointed the rifle at Shaw who had already stopped his patrol car in the roadway. Shaw got out of the car and took cover on the rear side of his patrol car. Bivins then fled from the officer and threw the rifle over a fence onto the front yard of a residence. Shaw pursued Bivins and apprehended him when Bivins tripped and fell to the ground at the intersection of Orange Avenue and Oak Street, Caruthers said. Deputies later retrieved the Glenfield .22-caliberrifle from the yard where Bivins reportedly had thrown it. Bivins reportedly told deputies en route to jail that he had been drinking and that if he had pointed a gun at the deputy, the deputy should have shot him. Bivins has an extensive history of drug charges dating back to 2003, Caruthers said. He was charged with assault on an officer, two counts of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, two counts of improper exhibition of a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, firing a weapon and wanted on a Lake County warrant. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond. states FADSS President Wally Cox. Rick is not only an exceptional superintendent with a proven track record of success; he is a true servant leader committed to educational excellence and he is very deserving of this award, adds Cox. There is no doubt that selecting a single superintendent out of 67 is always a difficult task, especially given the caliber of school district superintendents that we have in Florida, states FADSS Chief Executive Officer Bill Montford. As a voice of experience, being a superintendent is one of the toughest public service jobs there is; but those who choose the path do so not for the glory but rather the opportunity to make a positive difference in childrens lives and we should applaud each and every one of them for their service, adds Montford. The process for electing Floridas Superintendent of the Year was established by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), a national organization of school superintendents and other educational leaders. In February 2013, Shirley will represent all Florida superintendents at the AASAs National Education Conference in Los Angeles, Cali..,where he will be recognized and honored for his public education service in Florida.

P AGE A8SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 6, 2012 Wildwood Holiday Tour of Homes L ocally grown and milled wood, 1890s barn doors and Sumter County rock were all part of the experience last Saturday, as visitors stepped inside the homes of local residents for a peek. Jennifer and Sherman Manley, Steve and Debbie Munz and Ronnie and Belle Phillips opened their homes to the public for the 26th Annual GFWC Wildwood Women Club Holiday Tour of Homes. Dozens of visitors took the tour, travelling from Wildwood to Oxford to view everything from architecture, layout and style to home furnishings and holiday dcor. Coordinator Roslyn Davidson said they seemed to have more men on this tour than ever before, noting there were couples taking in ideas for their future homes and even a contractor who builds designer homes. Visitors were searching for everything from architectural style and historic treasures to design ideas. The Manlys used Sumter County stone from their Sumterville property inside to build the fireplace and the dividers between the kitchen and living room. They also used a railroad tie as a mantle, while using natural grasses and a circular drive to landscape outdoors. The home includes a pool and outdoor entertainment area with Adirondack chairs. The Adirondacks and a wooden horse in their son Wills room were handcrafted by Manlys brother. Manly is a superintendent at Raney Construction, Mrs. Manly is a teacher at Wildwood Middle High School. Just a few blocks over, is the Munz home, including its authentic fireplace mantle, saloon bar and barn doors from the late 1880s. The family collected items for years, preparing for this custom home. They purchased the property in 1996 and the home was built within months this year. They moved in on Sept. 7. A spacious kitchen that includes an island and breakfast/lunch bar is just one feature of the home. A dining room with seating for eight or more, a swimming pool and outdoor fireplace all work with a unique man cave B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesJennifer Manly stands at the front door of her home in northern Sumter County one of three homes that were on the 26th annual Wildwood Womens Club Holiday Tour of Homes. Jennifer and her husband Sherman used natural and manmade materials in the construction of their home, which was completed in 2011. This spacious kitchen in the Munz home includes an eat-in counter/divider and a central kitchen island. The room serves a famil y of five on the move, from pageant obligations to sports competitions.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY D ECEMBER 6, 2012, P AGE A9 tucked behind the kitchen. Inside the man cave, visitors find a collection of taxidermied animals, all but from hunts Munz took. Theres a cozy seating space in front of a large screen television and nearby, a trio of statues, positioned at a small table with playing cards in hand. Theres a wagon wheel handrail, rattlers frozen in strike position and the bar and barn doors. The family of five, including children Lane, Gralynn and Abbie, stays busy with pageant and sports events. Munz owns Galaxy Home Solutions. Married for 41 years, Ronnie and Belle Phillips have four grown daughters and six grandchildren. Natives of Wildwood, pieces of their family heritage can be seen throughout the house and even outside on the property. The buffet, table and chairs in their dining room were passed down from her family, while a mirror over the fireplace was passed from his grandfather. He and his brother Lee harvested their own cypress for the interior and exterior of the home, handcrafting columns for their office built-in shelves. The floor is hand finished Acacia wood and the house was completed in 2008. Outdoors, down where Phillips makes his cane syrup, is a small home, just to the east of the driveway. The home belonged to the aunt of Mrs. Phillips and was moved to the current location from riverfront. They have restored the kitchen and porch. She retired from the school system after 32 years, he from the railroad after 38. I was very pleased, the houses were beautiful, said Davidson of the tour, noting that as people returned to the tea house they were excited and making all kinds of positive comments about the homes. Everybody was just so excited. Thats always a good thing. Ive already had people calling me about the date of next years tour. They missed this year and want to put it on their calendar for next year. Typically, they draw about 100 people on the tour and their numbers for this year arent complete they still have money to collect from some of the sales locations. There were some people who bought tickets and werent able to go. Davidson shared a laugh as she noted she had taught four of the six of the homeowners Ron, Bell, Steve and Debbie, as well as the parents of Jennifer. The ladies provide a college scholarship with the proceeds from their fundraisers and specific donations and contributions from businesses. The scholarship is a Wildwood Middle High School graduate who is college-bound. Funded by a different source, they also offer a second-chance scholarship. Davidson said thats for an older woman, who wants to go back to school. The candidate will need to attend Lake Sumter State College in Leesburg and anyone interested can call 352-457-4936 for the necessary criteria. TOUR continued from Page 8 Tanya Mikeals (shown behind the bar) and her granddaughter Skyler Kornegay (seated center) led the tours and answered questions in the home of Steve and Debbie Munz.

Santas makin a list, checkin twice and markin the map for his annual stop in Bushnell. For more than 60 years, the bearded elf in a red suit has kept the stop on his route and this year is no exception. Santa, with the help of elves from the Sumter County probation office and the community, is set to arrive in town at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15. He plans to come bearing goodies for the children and refreshments for all. Each of the kids will have a chance to sit with Santa for a visit. While Santas visit should be right on time, there is one major change this year the location. For years the crowd gathered at the Christmas tree on northeast side of the South Sumter High School campus, but this year, Santa will arrive at the downtown park on Bushnell Plaza. The visit is set to take place under the gazebo The annual event was started decades ago, with Bushnell residents Fred Dietz and the late Jerry Eubanks taking over about 40 years ago. Since its beginnings, various groups and volunteers have added their support, but in recent years, Dietz and the probation staff have put it together. Coordinators work to gather donations, purchase candy and toys that can be distributed to local children make sure Santa shows up on time. Dietz said the elves at the probation office get pretty busy buying and packaging all the goodies for the big night. Dietz said theyve moved the visit from Santa to several different locations over the years, noting that when he started working with the project, Santa would arrive across from Suntrust Bank, where Computer Emporium is located. Back then, it was an empty lot, he said, noting they were also the only group doing anything like that. Dietz said that these days, there are other organizations out there, doing similar things and hes considered stopping the event. But every time he brings it up, he has grown-ups ask that they continue saying they visited Santa there and they want to carry on the tradition by bringing their children. While the kids and families are looking forward to fun and holiday spirit, theres the promise of a treat for grown up Bushnell Electric customers too bring in a bag of candy to help Santa fill those goody sacks and youll get a free night light!

Vehicles Wanted H oliday scents are in the air. Delectable delicacies are abundant. And pleading eyes stare up at you, wanting to sample all that delicious food. As tempting as it is to share the holiday bounties with your pet, be aware of a serious condition that can quickly develop. Pancreatitis, not surprisingly, occurs more often around the holidays. Sharing fatty table scraps, such as turkey skins and gravy can cause an acute pancreatic attack with severe symptoms of stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, fever and lethargy. A Pancreatic attack is an emergency that requires immediate veterinarian care. Left untreated, Pancreatitis can be fatal. The pet must be hospitalized and given IV fluids and pain medication to treat shock, dehydration, nausea and vomiting. A more aggressive treatment is required for severe cases that include, but not limited to administering antibiotics to treat secondary infections and plasma transfusions. If the pancreas is permanently damaged, your pet may develop diabetes. Animals that have had a pancreatic attack are more susceptible to recurrent attacks. To prevent reoccurring episodes, it is necessary to feed a low fat diet. While some breeds are at a higher risk than others, older animals that may be taking steroids or have other health problems are susceptible too. Keep pets at a healthy weight and do not feed table scraps, no matter how pleading those eyes are. Ok, if you find you just cannot resist those pleading eyes, give a healthy low fat treat, such as a piece of carrot or a couple of green beans. But a small amount only! I must confess, my resolve is melted too when adoring furry faces are staring up at me. My solution, while I am eating breakfast, is to give my dogs two little Cheerios or one mini Shredded Wheat each, and then tell them No More. My dogs know that is all that I will share, and they are content. I too, am content, knowing I shared a small bit of my food that will not harm them.

Shirley was formally recognized in Tampa during the joint meeting of FADSS and the Florida School Boards Association last week. Shirley said Tuesday that it was a humbling experience to be selected for the honor in front of his peers. Shirley was first elected Sumter County schools superintendent in 1996 and is now entering his fifth term. Obviously its an honor to be selected from 67 school superintendents and they all do a really good job, Shirley said. To be selected to represent them at a nation level is an honor that I never expected to achieve. Shirley credits the school district staff and the School Board members for contributing to the honor. I try to never forget that accomplishments and achievements are made through quality people and our school district is blessed. In addition to his 16 years of service as a school superintendent, Shirley has dedicated 21 years of service to public education as a middle school principal (three years), an elementary school principal (seven years), a curriculum assistant (four years) and one of the toughest, yet most rewarding jobs a public school teacher (seven years). Ricks background and path to the role of superintendent is grounded in first-hand experience, knowledge and a dedication to always make decisions that are in the best interests of students, Florida Superintendent of the Year Rick Shirley (center), with Sumter County Schools, flanked by FADSS CEO Bill Montford (left) and FADSS president and Highlands County Schools Superintendent Wally Cox.

Candy flew as princesses waved. Dancers danced, twirlers twirled and musicians played. The Grinch was trying to steal Christmas and even Santa arrived, with three of his eight reindeer. For the children and adults along the streets in Wildwood, it was holiday fun as the annual Christmas parade passed by last Saturday afternoon. The fun started at just after 3 p.m., with the sound of sirens and Christmas music. One ambulance was even decked out in garland and bows. The line of entries included something for everyone, from police, ambulance and fire units to motorcycles, cars, trucks and larger floats. PSL Construction took the Best Commercial float with their Whoville experience, including the Grinch dragging a sled of Christmas toys up the cliff and away from their rightful owners. Winners of the 2012 parade were: Camp Wildwood Equestrian Team for Best Animal entry; Pentecostal Gosen A&O, the South Sumter Royal Queens Court and Santa Claus were in a three-way tie for Best Non-Commercial float; PSL Construction took Best Commercial and Best All Around; Gem Club took Best Car/Truck; Villages Twirlers & Drum Corp for Best Walking/Twirling and the Wildwood Middle High School Band for Best Band/Marching.PAGEA2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER6, 2012 Christmas parade is Wildwood delight BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer These children were a part of a candy cane train, following the parade route and representing the Oxford Assembly of God.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER6, 2012 Read the Bill of RightsOn December 15, 2012 host or assemble friends and family for dinner. After dinner celebrate the Bill of Rights by reading them out loud in unison or taking turns. The out loud part is important. I feel most will receive a amazing feeling as the virtually sacred words are spoken. When you complete the reading discuss the health of the Bill of Rights. In many countries you can be arrested for doing this. Bill of Rights Day is a message to government that we people are the rulers and government is the servant. Thank You Vernon Johns Sumter CountyFrom Fire & EMSSumter County Fire & EMS responded to brush fires on C.R. 222 near C.R. 209 on Thursday Nov. 29, at approximately 11 a.m., and another on Saturday Dec. 1, on C.R. 209 near Camp Wildwood. Both fires quickly became wind driven, stretching the capabilities of the first arriving fire crew. Mutual aid assistance was requested from the Villages Public Safety Department and the Florida Forest service on both fires; which were quickly contained without any structures being threatened. Citizens are reminded to be extremely careful with open flames or discarding cigarettes, due to the drying conditions and changing winds that occur this time of year. The exact cause of both fires have yet to be identified. As a reminder, Sumter County Fire Rescue is now identified as Sumter County Fire & EMS, to better reflect the role we serve to the community.

Being eco-friendly is often the least of a busy familys concerns, but you may be surprised by the benefits that your family can enjoy from greening your holiday season. The Department of Environmental Protection recommends these ten easy tips that can help make your holidays not only more costefficient and eco-friendly, but fun and stress-free as wel. Use green cleaners. When preparing for holiday guests, trade in harsh household cleaners for cleaners that are safer for family health and the environment. Purchase LED light strands, which require less energy. Instead of buying holiday treats with paper wrappers, try making fun, homemade treats that do not require wrapping or that can be placed in reusable containers. Use cloth napkins and reusable utensils in place of disposable paper and plastic alternatives these may require washing, but they will save you money, conserve water and reduce waste. Make your holiday meal sustainable and boost your local economy by shopping for ingredients at a local farmers market, co-op or u-pick farm. Create nutrient-rich compost for your windowsill or backyard garden from your holiday meal leftovers. Buy recycled wrapping paper and holiday cards, and be sure to recycle again after use. Use old newspapers or butcher paper and let the kids draw their own holiday designs for a fun, eco-friendly holiday craft. Or instead of wrapping gifts, set up the toys so that the kids can play with them right away rather than unwrapping and setting them up. Create holiday decorations such as ornaments with old greeting cards, garlands made from strung popcorn or cranberries, and potpourri made from spices such as cinnamon and cloves. And remember: dont throw decorations away; store them for use during next years festivities! Visit your local Florida State Park and enjoy the holiday lights or seasonal festivals; its an affordable alternative to more costly weekend outings. The holidays are a great time of year to start implementing easy and sustainable ways to decorate and celebrate. There are lots of easy ways to reduce waste, reuse and recycle while having fun and saving money at the same time. By the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. For more green tips, visit the Departments website at www.dep.state.fl.us Some easy ways to green your holidays Fatalities on Floridas roadways decreased in 2011 by nearly 2 percent adding up to a 32-percent reduction in deaths on Floridas roadways since 2005. The fatality rate per mile traveled in 2011 held steady at its all-time low, first reached in 2010. Those are some of he findings in the recently released 2011 Florida Traffic Crash Statistics Report by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. The agency produces the report annually with data from the detailed traffic crash reports submitted by state and local law enforcement agencies. Traffic crashes are largely avoidable, and so I would urge drivers to give their full attention to the road when they are behind the wheel, said Julie L. Jones, DHSMV Executive Director. The Department strives to change driving behaviors and save lives. Here are some report highlights: Fatalities as a result of traffic crashes on Florida roadways decreased between 2010 and 2011 by nearly 2 percent going from 2,444 to 2,400, respectively. During the past six years, fatalities have dropped every year from 3,533 in 2005 to 2,400 in 2011, which is a 32-percent reduction. The state mileage death rate (the number of deaths per 100 million miles traveled) was 1.25 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled in 2011. That is the same rate as 2010 and is the lowest since the state began to calculate the rate in 1968. Motorcyclist and passenger fatalities increased between 2010 and 2011 by approximately 18 percent from 383 to 451, respectively. Bicyclist fatalities increased between 2010 and 2011 by almost 58 percent from 76 to 120, respectively. Fatalities of teen drivers and passengers increased between 2010 and 2011 by 7 percent from 144 to 154, respectively. The full statistics, including information by county, are available online at http://flhsmv.gov/html/safety.html under Traffic Crash Facts. The 2011 report is condensed due to several factors, including the change in the crash form used by law enforcement, which, when fully integrated into the data, will provide more detailed data than previous years. The Department will be changing the way it offers the report. Beginning in the spring of 2013, the public will be able to get real-time, 24-hour-a-day crash data via a dynamic Web portal. The portal is being developed by DHSMV and Appriss, a company that specializes in providing law enforcement agencies software to collect and distribute crash data. The 2011 Florida Traffic Crash Statistics Report is the last static report the Department will publish.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER6, 2012, PAGEA5 firing several shots from a rifle from the passengers side window, Caruthers said. One of the bullets struck the road by where the victim was standing. A second shot was fired and the victim fled to the residence to take cover. Bivins had reportedly called the man about 6:30 p.m. saying that he was going to blow his head off when he saw him, Caruthers reported. The two men reportedly were feuding about a woman. Deputy Lt. Zeke Shaw was the first officer to arrive and approached Bivins based on a description of the suspect. Bivins at that point was walking on Orange Avenue, Caruthers said. Bivins then reportedly turned around and pointed the rifle at Shaw who had already stopped his patrol car in the roadway. Shaw got out of the car and took cover on the rear side of his patrol car. Bivins then fled from the officer and threw the rifle over a fence onto the front yard of a residence. Shaw pursued Bivins and apprehended him when Bivins tripped and fell to the ground at the intersection of Orange Avenue and Oak Street, Caruthers said. Deputies later retrieved the Glenfield .22-caliberrifle from the yard where Bivins reportedly had thrown it. Bivins reportedly told deputies en route to jail that he had been drinking and that if he had pointed a gun at the deputy, the deputy should have shot him. Bivins has an extensive history of drug charges dating back to 2003, Caruthers said. He was charged with assault on an officer, two counts of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, two counts of improper exhibition of a firearm, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, firing a weapon and wanted on a Lake County warrant. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond. states FADSS President Wally Cox. Rick is not only an exceptional superintendent with a proven track record of success; he is a true servant leader committed to educational excellence and he is very deserving of this award, adds Cox. There is no doubt that selecting a single superintendent out of 67 is always a difficult task, especially given the caliber of school district superintendents that we have in Florida, states FADSS Chief Executive Officer Bill Montford. As a voice of experience, being a superintendent is one of the toughest public service jobs there is; but those who choose the path do so not for the glory but rather the opportunity to make a positive difference in childrens lives and we should applaud each and every one of them for their service, adds Montford. The process for electing Floridas Superintendent of the Year was established by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), a national organization of school superintendents and other educational leaders. In February 2013, Shirley will represent all Florida superintendents at the AASAs National Education Conference in Los Angeles, Cali..,where he will be recognized and honored for his public education service in Florida.

PAGEA8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER6, 2012 Wildwood Holiday Tour of Homes Locally grown and milled wood, 1890s barn doors and Sumter County rock were all part of the experience last Saturday, as visitors stepped inside the homes of local residents for a peek. Jennifer and Sherman Manley, Steve and Debbie Munz and Ronnie and Belle Phillips opened their homes to the public for the 26th Annual GFWC Wildwood Women Club Holiday Tour of Homes. Dozens of visitors took the tour, travelling from Wildwood to Oxford to view everything from architecture, layout and style to home furnishings and holiday dcor. Coordinator Roslyn Davidson said they seemed to have more men on this tour than ever before, noting there were couples taking in ideas for their future homes and even a contractor who builds designer homes. Visitors were searching for everything from architectural style and historic treasures to design ideas. The Manlys used Sumter County stone from their Sumterville property inside to build the fireplace and the dividers between the kitchen and living room. They also used a railroad tie as a mantle, while using natural grasses and a circular drive to landscape outdoors. The home includes a pool and outdoor entertainment area with Adirondack chairs. The Adirondacks and a wooden horse in their son Wills room were handcrafted by Manlys brother. Manly is a superintendent at Raney Construction, Mrs. Manly is a teacher at Wildwood Middle High School. Just a few blocks over, is the Munz home, including its authentic fireplace mantle, saloon bar and barn doors from the late 1880s. The family collected items for years, preparing for this custom home. They purchased the property in 1996 and the home was built within months this year. They moved in on Sept. 7. A spacious kitchen that includes an island and breakfast/lunch bar is just one feature of the home. A dining room with seating for eight or more, a swimming pool and outdoor fireplace all work with a unique man cave BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesJennifer Manly stands at the front door of her home in northern Sumter County one of three homes that were on the 26th annual Wildwood Womens Club Holiday Tour of Homes. Jennifer and her husband Sherman used natural and manmade materials in the construction of their home, which was completed in 2011. This spacious kitchen in the Munz home includes an eat-in counter/divider and a central kitchen island. The room serves a family of five on the move, from pageant obligations to sports competitions.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER6, 2012, PAGEA9 tucked behind the kitchen. Inside the man cave, visitors find a collection of taxidermied animals, all but from hunts Munz took. Theres a cozy seating space in front of a large screen television and nearby, a trio of statues, positioned at a small table with playing cards in hand. Theres a wagon wheel handrail, rattlers frozen in strike position and the bar and barn doors. The family of five, including children Lane, Gralynn and Abbie, stays busy with pageant and sports events. Munz owns Galaxy Home Solutions. Married for 41 years, Ronnie and Belle Phillips have four grown daughters and six grandchildren. Natives of Wildwood, pieces of their family heritage can be seen throughout the house and even outside on the property. The buffet, table and chairs in their dining room were passed down from her family, while a mirror over the fireplace was passed from his grandfather. He and his brother Lee harvested their own cypress for the interior and exterior of the home, handcrafting columns for their office built-in shelves. The floor is hand finished Acacia wood and the house was completed in 2008. Outdoors, down where Phillips makes his cane syrup, is a small home, just to the east of the driveway. The home belonged to the aunt of Mrs. Phillips and was moved to the current location from riverfront. They have restored the kitchen and porch. She retired from the school system after 32 years, he from the railroad after 38. I was very pleased, the houses were beautiful, said Davidson of the tour, noting that as people returned to the tea house they were excited and making all kinds of positive comments about the homes. Everybody was just so excited. Thats always a good thing. Ive already had people calling me about the date of next years tour. They missed this year and want to put it on their calendar for next year. Typically, they draw about 100 people on the tour and their numbers for this year arent complete they still have money to collect from some of the sales locations. There were some people who bought tickets and werent able to go. Davidson shared a laugh as she noted she had taught four of the six of the homeowners Ron, Bell, Steve and Debbie, as well as the parents of Jennifer. The ladies provide a college scholarship with the proceeds from their fundraisers and specific donations and contributions from businesses. The scholarship is a Wildwood Middle High School graduate who is college-bound. Funded by a different source, they also offer a second-chance scholarship. Davidson said thats for an older woman, who wants to go back to school. The candidate will need to attend Lake Sumter State College in Leesburg and anyone interested can call 352-457-4936 for the necessary criteria.

Santas makin a list, checkin twice and markin the map for his annual stop in Bushnell. For more than 60 years, the bearded elf in a red suit has kept the stop on his route and this year is no exception. Santa, with the help of elves from the Sumter County probation office and the community, is set to arrive in town at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15. He plans to come bearing goodies for the children and refreshments for all. Each of the kids will have a chance to sit with Santa for a visit. While Santas visit should be right on time, there is one major change this year the location. For years the crowd gathered at the Christmas tree on northeast side of the South Sumter High School campus, but this year, Santa will arrive at the downtown park on Bushnell Plaza. The visit is set to take place under the gazebo The annual event was started decades ago, with Bushnell residents Fred Dietz and the late Jerry Eubanks taking over about 40 years ago. Since its beginnings, various groups and volunteers have added their support, but in recent years, Dietz and the probation staff have put it together. Coordinators work to gather donations, purchase candy and toys that can be distributed to local children make sure Santa shows up on time. Dietz said the elves at the probation office get pretty busy buying and packaging all the goodies for the big night. Dietz said theyve moved the visit from Santa to several different locations over the years, noting that when he started working with the project, Santa would arrive across from Suntrust Bank, where Computer Emporium is located. Back then, it was an empty lot, he said, noting they were also the only group doing anything like that. Dietz said that these days, there are other organizations out there, doing similar things and hes considered stopping the event. But every time he brings it up, he has grown-ups ask that they continue saying they visited Santa there and they want to carry on the tradition by bringing their children. While the kids and families are looking forward to fun and holiday spirit, theres the promise of a treat for grown up Bushnell Electric customers too bring in a bag of candy to help Santa fill those goody sacks and youll get a free night light!

Vehicles Wanted Holiday scents are in the air. Delectable delicacies are abundant. And pleading eyes stare up at you, wanting to sample all that delicious food. As tempting as it is to share the holiday bounties with your pet, be aware of a serious condition that can quickly develop. Pancreatitis, not surprisingly, occurs more often around the holidays. Sharing fatty table scraps, such as turkey skins and gravy can cause an acute pancreatic attack with severe symptoms of stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, fever and lethargy. A Pancreatic attack is an emergency that requires immediate veterinarian care. Left untreated, Pancreatitis can be fatal. The pet must be hospitalized and given IV fluids and pain medication to treat shock, dehydration, nausea and vomiting. A more aggressive treatment is required for severe cases that include, but not limited to administering antibiotics to treat secondary infections and plasma transfusions. If the pancreas is permanently damaged, your pet may develop diabetes. Animals that have had a pancreatic attack are more susceptible to recurrent attacks. To prevent reoccurring episodes, it is necessary to feed a low fat diet. While some breeds are at a higher risk than others, older animals that may be taking steroids or have other health problems are susceptible too. Keep pets at a healthy weight and do not feed table scraps, no matter how pleading those eyes are. Ok, if you find you just cannot resist those pleading eyes, give a healthy low fat treat, such as a piece of carrot or a couple of green beans. But a small amount only! I must confess, my resolve is melted too when adoring furry faces are staring up at me. My solution, while I am eating breakfast, is to give my dogs two little Cheerios or one mini Shredded Wheat each, and then tell them No More. My dogs know that is all that I will share, and they are content. I too, am content, knowing I shared a small bit of my food that will not harm them.
