PET of the WEEK Thursday, January 17, 2013Volume 127 Number 3Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.com For more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comT IMES INSIDE: QUICK CLICK SUMTER COUNTY Bring on the mud! Flyers seek murder leads I t created a lengthy discussion, but in the end county commissioners last week gave their nod of approval and granted a major special use permit for a proposed entertainment park that would span more than 1,000 acres northwest of Lake Panasoffkee. After three hours of testimony, discussion and questions last Tuesday, the board voted 4 to 1 to approve the permit request to Otsego Holdings LLC. Commissioner Don Burgess cast the lone opposing vote. Commissioners listened while promoters of the facility provided the board with expert witnesses saying that the proposed facility would not create noise levels beyond legal limits or generate traffic snarls two of the main objections to the facility presented by opponents of the project. The permit gives developers the green light to proceed with plans to develop the park on the northwest corner of County Road 475 and State Road 44. County Commissioner Garry Breeden made the motion to approve the permit saying that based on expert testimony he believes the project with not generate excessive noise or traffic and would additionally be governed by Southwest Florida Water Management District and state Department of Environmental Protection regulations. Breeden also said because the county has substantial control of special use permits, it would be easy to pull the plug if the park turned out not to be in compliance with county requirements. Commission Chairman Doug Gilpin provided the second to Breedens motion saying he believes the noise and the traffic can be controlled and that the venture would be advantageous to the area. A substantial amount of time was spent as residents with property near the proposed facility voiced either their support or opposition to the plans. Most of the opposition centered on concerns that the facility would disturb the rural nature of the area and that the park did not conform to current property uses. But supporters said the park would offer anything from new County Commission OKs entertainment park Law enforcement officers have officially classified the 2006 disappearance of a Temple Terrace woman with ties to Lake Panasoffkee as a murder. Its been seven years since Sandra Hamby Prince, then 59, disappeared and had been deemed to be a missing person by the Temple Terrace Police Department. But last week, police officials reclassified her disappearance, calling it a murder and offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her murderer. Investigators believe that Prince was murdered sometime between Dec. 28, 2005 to Jan. 3, 2006, according to Temple Terrace Police Chief Ken Albano. During the early stages of an investigation, police named Earl Pippin, 59, Lake Panasoffkee, as a person of interest in the case. Last week, flyers announcing the reward were distributed through the Lake Panasoffkee area. Prince owned real estate in Lake Panasoffkee Sandra Prince Chamber set for dinner The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce has announced the recipients of its Business and Industry Awards, to be presented at the chambers Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner on Friday, Jan. 25, 6:30 p.m., at the Wildwood Community Center, 6500 Powell Road in Wildwood.

Its important to remember that once you get the shot, you still need about two weeks before the vaccination provides full protection from the illness. Health dept.: Get the flu shot All of a sudden youre cold, youre achy, and you have a fever. Chances are, youre part of the growing number of people throughout the country suffering with the flu. In wake of the growing number of flu cases in the nation, the state, and locally, the Sumter County Health Department is urging residents to protect themselves and their families by getting a flu shot. This flu season is early and more severe than most, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC has identified Florida, along with 29 other states and New York City as regions with high Influenza-type illness activity at the present time. The proportion of outpatient visits for the flu last week is 5.5 percent nationally, more than twice the normal level. Getting a flu shot is the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease, according to the health department. But its important to remember that once you get the shot, you still need about two weeks before the vaccination provides full protection from the illness. Walter Thomas, health department spokesman, said its important to realize that the CDC doesnt expect the flu season to peak until February or March which may mean an extended flu B OB R EICHMAN Editor See FLU Page 2 BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesBambi Werner and Debbie Vanoort set up their booth with handmade dog food bag totes, cloth trivets and muscle warmers.

and was known to frequent the area to visit friends and associates. Pippin and Prince were involved in a lengthy intimate relationship at the time of her murder, according to a police press release. Pippin continues to reside in the Lake Panasoffkee area and remains a person of interest in the case, according to police. Prince, who lived at 11507 Moffat Place, Temple Terrace, was last seen by a co-worker at her place of employment, ACTS, a substance abuse rehabilitation center, on Dec. 28, 2005, police say. A concerned neighbor reported Prince missing on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2006. Upon arrival at Princes residence, police found the back door of the house unlocked. Upon further investigation, police discovered a significant amount of Princes blood. Shortly after her disappearance, a masked man was photographed using Princes ATM card at two banks in Temple Terrace and Tampa. The $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Princes murder. Persons with any information about the crime or information that may be useful to investigators are asked to contact the Temple Terrace Police Department at 813-9897110. season. Early on in the season, we had a lot of people coming in for shots, but this time of year many people think its over with, but it looks like the peak is still ahead of us, he said. Those who may have a medical history of severe illness or a severe life threatening allergy should discuss the risks of vaccination with their doctor beforehand. See the CDC web site at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/should-notvacc.htm for additional information. Flu shots are offered in many locations, including doctors offices, clinics, health departments and pharmacies and they are readily available. The vaccine actually contains three different strains of flu, Thomas said, including strain A which is currently the most prevalent. Thomas suggests practicing good hygiene during the flu season. Washing your hands with soap and water and working up a friction by doing so is a good way of getting rid of bacteria, he said. He also advises avoiding using your hands when you cough or sneeze, thats your connection to the world. Coughing into your elbow or using a Kleenex is recommended. Hankies arent recommended because they are not sanitary. For information about obtaining a flu shot through the Sumter County Health Department, call 352-569-3102 Bushnell or 352-330-1313 Wildwood.

The newest plans for the communtys future were unveiled Tuesday afternoon by SouthVenture Properties owners of the shopping plaza on C.R. 470 in the business area. Managing partner James Sharkey spoke to a group of residents and business owners gathered at the Allens Stardust Collection wine shop in the center. Sharkey shared the companys architectural drawings to improve the appearance of the center and a slide show with images of other properties they have acquired and renovated. He said the renovations have been planned since they acquired the property, but the state of the economy put things on hold. The plans include major changes in the front faade, with an added covered walkway and new signage. Inside renovations will include turning some of the spaces into large suites that can be leased to one or more businesses. For example, an end space that is currently one unit, will be divided into four suites each one between 18 and 19feet wide and 50-feet long. Improvements will also include night lighting and large front window glass. He said they purchase an outdoor lighting thats expensive but will save on electricity and provide 150 watts of light on 20 watts of power, thanks to its housing design. This is the seed, Sharkey said of the centers potential impact for growth in the community. It starts with this building right here. Well see where it takes us, he said, noting they also own the Economizer grocery store building and a storage unit behind the store. They have five acres of property at the site. Its a perfect corridor, he said of the growth potential, noting that his company studied the area for about six months before they purchased the property. Sharkey said they would eventually like to be able to have one continual center, connecting the shopping plaza with the grocery store. But he notes that depends on various factors, including growth of businesses in the center and government sewage. The county is currently working to obtain a sewage feasibility study. The focus is on sewage for businesses, not residences. Plans are to start the interior renovations within the next two weeks, as they work with future tenants. During that same meeting, the crowd heard from Robbie Keszey and Dr. Richard Kane, who hope to find a location for a teaching zoo in the community. Keszey said they would like to find an estimated hundred-acre area where they could house and breed wildlife, giving the public an experience with an interactive zoo. For example, there would be an observation area, where the public could watch surgeries being performed on wildlife. The men likened the facility to the Busch Gardens animal nursery and hospital, noting that its one of the most popular draws for the public. Keszey said Kane is on the advisory council for the university and the zoo would include a dorm for students working in the field as they complete their vet schooling. He pointed out that hes been offered the opportunity to work zoos in at least three different locations around the world, but would prefer to remain where his family has set down roots. They hope to provide educational live shows and to actually tape their own educational show at the facility, while bringing both attention and dollars to the community. Our goal is to attract families, he said. Sharkey gave the group a preview through a slide show with images of other properties that they have a acquired and renovated. The changing face of Lake Panasoffkee B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff WriterPolice report Suspect arrested in car lot vehicle theftSheriffs investigators in Palm Beach arrested a suspect in the recent theft of at least one vehicle and computer equipment from a Bushnell car dealership. The thefts happened sometime before 7:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2, at Town and Country Select, on E. Noble Avenue, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. Thats when an employee arrived at work and discovered that someone had broken into the business by throwing a rock through the front door glass. The employee noticed that a cars drivers door was open and then discovered that a 2008 Kia Sedona van was missing, Caruthers said. Later that day, a second vehicle, a 1995 dark blue Ford F150, was reported as stolen. Investigators are still seeking to locate that vehicle. The business also reported that several computers were taken and that the office had been ransacked, according to Caruthers. After the thefts, investigators were able to determine that the stolen van had entered the turnpike at Leesburg based on a transponder signal in the vehicle, Caruthers said. It traveled south to the West Palm Beach area. Based on a photo imagine taken at the turnpike, investigators were able to identify the driver of the van as Steven Schilb, 37, of Georgia. Schilb had been visiting in Sumter County and actually had been dropped off near the sheriffs office to turn himself in on outstanding warrants, Caruthers said. But Schilb never made it to the sheriffs office. Sumter authorities then issued an arrest warrant for burglary, grand theft auto, grand theft and criminal mischief. On Jan. 11, Palm Beach County sheriffs deputies responded to a vehicle burglary in progress and ended up arresting Schilb on local charges and holding him on the Sumter charges, Caruthers said.

P AGE A4SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 17, 2013 The war on snakes Floridas war on snakes can be directly attributed to lawmakers who capitulate to the exotic animal industry by refusing to ban wild animals being kept as pets. When you make it as simple as pulling out a credit card to buy snakes, alligators, iguanas and other exotic species, the cruel cycle begins. Animals quickly go from must have to must get rid of. Some end up in already-overburdened shelters; others are simply dumped, destined to become targets in state-sponsored killing sprees appallingly called contests. As a licensed wildlife rehabber with 15 years experience in treating societys cast-offs, I can attest that people will not change, so the laws must. Legislators must slam the door shut on the exotic pet industry once and for all. Sincerely Early Mitchum Bonneau, S.C. Support for Hospice Chili Cook offDear Friends of Sumter County, I became passionate about the prospect of volunteering for Hospice because of my witness to the services offered by Hospice nurses during my mothers illness and passing. When it was decided to dedicate the name of the new Hospice House in Sumterville to our dear friend and community supporter, Lane Purcell, I knew I had to help. I dont know what my family would have done without the services of Hospice. Seeing the love and compassion that the Hospice nurses and volunteers had for their patients and families touched my heart. The Hospice nurses really depend on volunteers so their time can be focused on patient care. I really enjoyed my time as a volunteer, but working a full time job, I was limited to what I could contribute. I was asked to join a very small group of people who were trying to form a committee to create fund raising efforts for the Lane Purcell Hospice House. And that, my friends, is how the Spice it Up for Hospice Chili Cook off idea was put into action. A few of us gather together each year and are now planning the third annual Spice It Up For Hospice event, and we are asking for the communitys support On Saturday, February 2nd, a chili cook off will take place in downtown Bushnell. The event is located in the beautiful new park that was built on Bushnell Plaza. The event starts at 11am and chili tasting lasts until 2pm, with participants voting on their favorite flavors. For $5.00, you get a cute chili pepper necklace, a drink and an armband that entitles you to try the various spicy flavors and cast your vote for your favorite. You also vote for the best chili booth display. The day includes a family friendly atmosphere with live music by Todd Brown and the River Junction Band (who have donated their time for the last three years), dancing, hot dogs on the grill and an event long raffle drawing for wonderful prizes. LDL Enterprises in Bushnell, Bushnell Beef O Bradys, Porters Jewelers in Bushnell Bushnell Ace Hardware, Marthas Flower Shop, Hair & Nail Creations in Wildwood, Sumter Tire and Auto in Wildwood, Total Tease Salon in Bushnell and an anonymous donor have all donated for the raffle drawings for valuable items that will be given away that day. Raffle tickets are $5.00 for one, or 3 for $10.00, with all proceeds benefiting Lane Purcell Hospice House. The Florida Blood Centers Big Red Bus will be at Chili Cook off accepting Blood donations. Give the gift of Life. Blood donors will receive a free movie ticket voucher. Cornerstone Hospice is most grateful for the generosity of our sponsors that are helping to underwrite our event this year. Sponsors include Central Florida Health Alliance, Ernie Morris Enterprises, Inc., Langley Medical Center, and Good Fellas Roll Offs & Waste Disposal, Inc. We can also use chili cooks, so put your best recipe to work and come join the fun! Its only $20 to setup a booth. Details can be obtained by calling me, Susan Noell during the evening at 7932835 or 303-6779. Prizes are awarded to the first, second and third place winners, best booth display and we have a panel of secret judges who pick their favorite. There are spots available so dont delay, just give me a call! Cornerstone Hospice has provided comfortable care and compassionate services to our friends and neighbors facing serious illness and end of life. The Lane Purcell House was built on donated land and with funding from charitable donationsit was only possible with the generosity of people like you. In 2012, we served 867 patients and families in Sumter County. Over 200 received care at the Lane Purcell Hospice House. Today it is important that our county continues to provide charitable support in order to meet the needs of all of your neighbors, no matter their ability to pay for service. I am personally asking for your support for this event. All proceeds benefit the Lane Purcell Hospice House and patient care. Thank you and see you at the Chili cook off!! Sincerely, Susan Noell, Chairman Lane Purcell Hospice House Advisory CommitteePlaying the game Several football games appeared on TV in January, 2013. In each game, teams with similar talents and records competed for the prize. Most people think its only fair to ask similar teams to compete. Nobody wants to watch a championship college team compete against a good high school team. That would not be fair and it would be a farce. In the business world, its completely different. The business leaders hire expert negotiators such as lawyers, accountants, p-r agents to negotiate with workers who may be skillful at construction, mining, teaching, nursing, but certainly they are no competition with professional negotiators. Business leaders do not want competition in labor negotiations. Business leaders do not want their employees to hire professional negotiators to speak for them when its time to discuss wages and benefits. Business leaders want the unfair and unsportsman-like arrangement where they hold all the power and demand that the workers negotiate with no help from lawyers, accountants and labor experts. Business leaders want to win the argument every time. That is why Republicans oppose professional union negotiators. Instead, Republicans support businessmen who want unfair and unbalanced negotiations with the people who do the actual work to make a successful business. In a fair and well balanced world, business leaders would make every effort to negotiate all workplace issues in a clear and transparent fashion. Who is supporting the right to work issues? American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a collusion of big business and local legislators to squash workers rights. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce creates misleading reports about right to work issues. Best, Robert Wesolowski, The Villages Give teachers the right to protect their students! B y Dr. Harold Pease One of the revelations that surfaced from the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre was that deranged gunman, Adam Lanza, carried hundreds of rounds of ammunition, enough to kill all 450 children in the school. What stopped him? Apparently he decided to kill himself when he heard police sirens and knew that the officers were nearing the scene and their guns would soon confront his. They say it takes a gun to stop a gun. Besides suggesting a possible solution, not here-to-fore considered, of having a recording of sirens approaching on some external sound system to frighten away those committing crimes on school grounds, why not give teachers and others assigned care of the children, the right to protect their students if they wish it. Just one gun somewhere on the premise could have been enough. Lanza had ten minutes of unrestrained killing time before police arrived after 911 notification and before he took his life ending the massacre. If but one armed concealed weapons permit holder had been nearby he/she could have saved perhaps eight minutes of indiscriminant slaughter. How many lives is that? This is not to suggest that every teacher must participate, only those who wish to. Hundreds of regular citizens in my county already carry concealed weapons everywhere except in gun free zones. Such is the same in most counties throughout the nation. Law enforcement normally see them as an asset, the ultimate backup should they need extra help, and also because cops know they cant be everywhere at the same time, as Sandy Hook demonstrated. Why not let them do so on school grounds as well allowing them to be an asset of protection wherever they are? It would cost the school nothing. Chances are every school already has two or three concealed weapons permit holders among its faculty and staff now. Again, why not let those who wish to protect their students do so? Permit holders are among our finest citizens. Obtaining a concealed weapons permit requires a thorough investigation, a near perfect record from law enforcement, a stated need to carry, and some training. Normally they are older more mature folks and, in the case of teachers, we already trust our children with them. They are already on the scene where a policeman could not possibly be. What a deterrent to a would-be killer if he knew schools are no longer entirely gun free. Gun free zones clearly do not work. They certainly do not keep killers away. Most massacres in the United States happen in gun-free zones. Anticipating no resistance, rather then deter, they entice killers giving them access to large groups of unprotected, good, and innocent victimsoften children. Presently the only hope that a teacher, wishing to protect his/her students, has is to hide them and at Sandy Hook that helped a few. In my classroom, as in most, there is but one door. Everyone inside, including me, has been set up by his own government to be a victim. In my classroom the door cannot be locked from inside should I hear gunfire outside. There is a small back room (often kept locked by the school because it houses sensitive computer wiring connections) where students near by could hide if they had access and time. Hopefully a potential gunman would then think no one was inside and move on to another classroombut this is not enough. Since Sandy Hook happened, I ask students sitting on the door side of the room, upon hearing gunfire from outside the room, to lineup next to the wall, remove the fire extinguisher from the wall next to a door that opens outwardly, and spray or hit the intruder as he enters. Those behind him then overwhelm the intruder after the distraction, but this is all that I can do and it is not enough. Since my students are adults this might work. Better yet, a teacher or student with a concealed weapons permit, need only pull out a weapon from pocket or purse and fire a couple of rounds at a very surprised, then very dead, killer. Elected officials, please give students and teachers a fighting chance to survive. Teachers have done nothing that should justify disarming us, or fearing us, and thus leaving us with virtually no hope of survival. You may answer, We cant just let anyone have a weapon of mass destruction! You already do!! Anyone, 16 and older, can have access to an automobile, which is decidedly a weapon of mass destructioneven if he might commit crimes with it. This brings us back to the lessons of Sandy. Adam Lanza did his deed in a location that he knew was gun free and ceased his rampage of killing only because someone else, in this case the police, would soon be firing at him. Next time let that person be a teacher with a concealed weapon whose action would allow so many more students to live. Please! Dr. Harold Pease is an expert on the United States Constitution. He has dedicated his career to studying the writings of the Founding Fathers and applying that knowledge to current events.

Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has named Charles Chuck Lee, MA, MBA, as President and Chief Executive Officer. Lee is a veteran in the hospice industry who has led patient care operations, strategic planning, fund raising, business development, and volunteer recruitment at several hospice organizations. We are fortunate to welcome Chuck to our leadership team, commented John Moore, Cornerstone Hospice Board Chairman. His proven ability to work collaboratively to provide exceptional care while sustaining and expanding programs will benefit the organization as we move into a challenging time for health care providers. I am honored and humbled to be asked to serve the team at Cornerstone Hospice, Lee said. Cornerstone has a long tradition of excellence in serving dying persons and their loved ones in Central Florida, and Im excited to play a part in keeping that tradition strong in the years ahead. Lee, who most recently has served as Chief Operations Officer at Hospice of Chattanooga in Tennessee, will assumed his role at Cornerstone Hospice, which serves seven Central Florida counties, on January 2. In the coming years, hospice programs including Cornerstone will face daunting challenges, Lee said. Tighter regulations, changes in reimbursement, and increased competition will demand that Cornerstone enhance the quality of its service delivery, keep costs under control, and find creative new ways to ensure that our caring mission remains intact.

Last month, Jana Broder, The Drum Lady, led Drum Circle workshops at Wildwood Middle High School. This interactive presentation is by her company called Drum Magic and a part of the GEM (Grade-levelwide Enrichment Model) which is christened the WMHS Arts Integration Program. Drum Magic: A fun and cutting edge team building and stress relief Drum circle experience used effectively in a variety of Corporate and Community environments: For synchronization of thought processes. For intuitive development, stress release, and The dissolving of racial, cultural, gender and age barriers. Drum Magic comes to your corporate or college event with enough drums and trained facilitators to lead your group on a positive and exciting shared rhythm experience. With tough schedules, hard exams, financial difficulties, and other school related obligations, students need to cut loose and have serious fun. Drumming is a healthy way to achieve that fun while strengthening student relations at the same time. The common beat of the drums help synchronize your student body or corporate team in their day-to-day activities well into the future. Drumming is an invigorating physical, psychological, emotional, and deeply rooted human experience that reconnects us to ourselves and each other. Drum circles offer a participatory discovery experience. Participants may wonder, Do I have rhythm? Can I really play and sound good? Can I contribute to our community song? Guided by a Drum Magic facilitator, participants discover the answer is YES! They leave with a boosted sense of creativity and empowerment, able to explore other opportunities with deeper engagement. The event was presented to three groups, on campus: a morning session for select AVID students and students with disabilities; an afternoon session for the 8th grade GEM group of students and an after school session with teachers. This event was a tie-in to relationship building, culture, kinesthetic activity, and classroom curriculum as part of the WMHS Arts Integration Program. The program was sponsored in part by Wildwood Middle High School, Community Partners The Drum Lady visits Wildwood

Its often the most dreaded question of the day. Between school, activities, work and life, there are nights the big dinner decision doesnt happen until the last possible minute. Fortunately, the answer is probably right in your pantry canned food. Canned foods are not only convenient and budget-friendly, they reduce your cooking time and inspire whole some and delicious meals your family will love. Canned items are also one of the best ways to get food directly from the farm to your familys table. Because many fruits and vegetables are canned directly after harvest, the canning process seals in foods freshness and natural goodness, retaining their taste, quality and nutrients. Canned vegetables and fruits often provide as many vitamins and as much dietary fiber as their fresh and frozen counterparts. So when youre cooking with canned foods, you can feel confident that youre serving your family a high-quality, hearty, home-cooked meal. And, most importantly, you know whats for dinner. Its in your pantry (a.k.a. your Cantry.) For more recipes, visit www.Facebook.com/CansGetYouCooking and www.Pinterest.com/CansGetUCooking.

Collins, the church has had some ups and downs in their more than 130year history, but recently they are experiencing a major upswing. The church has grown significantly within the past six months, more than doubling in average worship attendance. WUMC is home to the Wildwood Food Pantry, which feeds hundreds of people each month by providing enough groceries to last the families a two week period. The folks of WUMC are looking for other ways to reach out into the community and network with other organizations and churches. To accomplish this task, they are planning to hold a special community worship service with a very special guest. Sheila Raye Charles is coming to town! Ms. Charles creates her own distinct sound while delivering her intensely inspiring message of hope and love. As a talented singer/songwriter, she has found her voice in acoustic jazz and R & B with lyrics that deliver the personal journey of her own life and her relationship with her legendary father, Ray Charles. At age 19, with great courage, she defied her fathers wishes and pursued music. Demonstrating her commitment and her talent, her father actually brought her and her band into his studio and personally produced several songs. Through a series of life changing events, her music career waned as she gathered a lifetime of experiences which, today, give great meaning and countenance to her music. Today, Charles is called upon to provide skin tingling renditions of her fathers best known songs from America the Beautiful to Hit The Road Jack to Georgia from jazz festivals to places of worship. As an entertaining and engaging vocalist, Charles is able to inspire her audiences with stories of her life challenges of drug addiction and recovery, of her spiritual journey and personal growth while at the same time delivering meaty, life giving music. With the publication of her life story, Behind the Shades, Charles provides insight into her life and her path to God. Ms. Charles will be on hand to sign her book and pictures after the service. We often times feel isolated in our efforts to help hurting people. We want to offer an opportunity for all the churches in our community to come together for a special moment that may grow into something miraculous. stated Rev. Michael Beck, the senior pastor at WUMC. We know there are huge problems with alcoholism and addiction, poverty, and incarceration in our community, we believe Sheilas testimony will bring people together and give us hope in the midst of crisis. said Beck who himself was born addicted and fought through his own battle with alcohol, drugs, and incarceration. Ms. Charles will bless the community in song and word at 11 a.m. Sunday morning Feb. 3, at Wildwood United Methodist Church. All people are invited to attend the service. WUMC is hopeful that other congregations will feel welcome to participate in this significant event for the Wildwood community. Ray Charles daughter to perform at Wildwood United Methodist Brewster is a 3to 4-year-old Shih Tzu/terrier mix. Brewster is a sweet boy that does well with others, but would be best fed separately. Neutered, current on his vaccines and microchipped Brewster is ready to come home with you.

On a beautiful Saturday morning, out we went again for a walk with our dogs; Betty Hall with her dog Shane, and me with my dog Hanna Banana. Betty wanted to check out a trail she spotted from the road in Lake Panasoffkee. Nature trail walks are becoming an enjoyable weekend occurrence. Our walks are not only great physical exercise, but good mental stimulation for both humans and dogs. This particular trail didnt go that far, and ended at the river. There I spotted an egret on the opposite bank of the river. Betty and I are both nature lovers, and we always carry our cameras with us to capture wildlife and natural landscapes. Betty wanted to get a picture, and so I held the dogs back. She slowly creped up and on to the dock, very careful not to move quickly, she stayed low to the ground so as to get a closer picture of the bird. After taking several pictures, it was my turn, and so she held the dogs back while I went onto the dock, again moving slowly so as not to scare the bird, and to get a few pictures. But something was very odd. The bird never moved. Yes we were very careful not to scare it, but there was absolutely no movement at all. Even when a very loud truck passed over a nearby bridge, the bird never moved. We stood there for a good 10 minutes, and the egret remain absolutely still. Suddenly we thought that maybe it was a decoy bird, which started us laughing. Our imaginations took over, and as we visualized our selves creeping up on a fake bird, we laughed even more. Then we thought; what if there was a camera in the fake bird, and we were being video taped, and we two ridiculous ladies may go viral on the internet making fools of our selves. That really got us going with laughter. Finally, we decided to turn around to leave, and continued our walk. Off we went, with the dogs back to sniffing all the rich scents of the area while exercising their minds and bodies. One last time, just one last time, we had to walk back and check on that egret. And sure enough there it was, still standing in the same spot and in the same position. Ok now we were sure it was a decoy bird, and as we turned to walk away It moved!!! It started to walk around the river bank. We started laughing again. What a relief to know that we were not going to be going viral on the internet. But gee what a great joke that would have been to play on someone. So there you have it. Betty and I still laugh about it. I dont know if anyone else would find it as humorous as we do. Maybe you just had to be there. Critter chatter Maybe You Had to Be There Linda Graves Sumter DART I spotted an egret on the opposite bank of the river. SPORTS The South Sumter High girls soccer team needed a hero Monday and she was Kylie Lovett. The South Sumter High girls continued their season by beating Umatilla 1-0 in overtime Monday in the Class 2A-District 6 tournament at Ocala Trinity Catholic. Lovett scored the winning goal in overtime Monday. She kind of dribbled up the side, took everybody on and shot it in from five yards, said coach Kassy Boivin. The teams leading scorer is Daisy Hernandez, who is out with an allergic reaction. She is a senior and one of three captains. She may play Wednesday. Results of the Wednesday match were not available at press time. Lovett is the teams second leading goal scorer. She plays club soccer. South Sumter (9-5-2), the third seed, was to face Crystal River, the second seed Wednesday. Crystal River beat South Sumter 3-0 in the regular season. Crystal River beat Pierson Taylor Monday. This is the third year of coaching for Boivin. She played at Columbus State University in Georgia before coming South Sumter. She played at Countryside High School in Clearwater. This is the best year the program has ever had, she said. It was a different mind set this year. Everyone took it more seriously. The games werent an option. I had to kick a few girls off the team. I had to break some bad habits. We have a pretty strong defense. Kelsey Current, a sophomore, came out for the team for the first time and ended up as goalkeeper. She is super athletic and has been doing great. She plays club soccer. Freshman Shelbie Lovett, Kylies sister, played left defender, and is solid. Every game, I can count on her. She also plays club soccer. Daisy has scored so many goals. Kylie is the captain. She is a natural leader and one of the captains. Lovett hits winning goal as South Sumter girls win 1-0 L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent A remarkable thing happened Thursday in the Zephyrhills High-South Sumter High girls basketball game at the Raiders gym. Zephyrhills (5-13) could not score a point in the second quarter. Meanwhile, South Sumters sophomoredominated team scored 15 points. The Raiders (7-10) rolled onto a 51-28 victory that night. Kyra Bannister hit 22 points to lead all scorers. Zenia Carter hit 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Raiders. Bannister scored seven of her points in the first quarter when the visiting Bulldogs actually led 12-11. Carter scored 12 points in the second quarter when the Raiders were on the roll. South Sumter actually scored 19 unanswered points. They led 26-12 at half and the game was clearly over in the second quarter. I guess the adrenaline, Bannister said when asked about that remarkable second period. We started the season with no wins. We work really hard. The Raiders coach explained that eight-minute period. We were pressing, said coach Kimberly Borum. We have been really good at pressing. Its just the defense. We shift the defense back into a zone. We have been playing really well after Christmas. We are attacking offensively better. Anybody that touches the ball, we want to attack. The more shots we get off, the better chances we have of getting points on the scoreboard. Bannister is averaging 15 points per game and her coach is happy with her progress. Kyra has really stepped up her knowledge of the game of basketball, said Borum. She is just a sophomore. She is learning how to control the ball better, how to control her body better, how to read the defense. She is starting to pick up her game to be the quarterback we need in the game of basketball. We are excited to have her for two more years. Bannister scored eight points in the third quarter as the Raiders outscored their foes 13-6. Reserves flooded the floor as South Sumter beat the Bulldogs 12-8 in the fourth quarter. Bannister led with six points. South Sumter will have two home games this week. They play Mount Dora Thursday and Lake Mineola Friday. Raider girls take victory game

Flyers seek murder leads It created a lengthy discussion, but in the end county commissioners last week gave their nod of approval and granted a major special use permit for a proposed entertainment park that would span more than 1,000 acres northwest of Lake Panasoffkee. After three hours of testimony, discussion and questions last Tuesday, the board voted 4 to 1 to approve the permit request to Otsego Holdings LLC. Commissioner Don Burgess cast the lone opposing vote. Commissioners listened while promoters of the facility provided the board with expert witnesses saying that the proposed facility would not create noise levels beyond legal limits or generate traffic snarls two of the main objections to the facility presented by opponents of the project. The permit gives developers the green light to proceed with plans to develop the park on the northwest corner of County Road 475 and State Road 44. County Commissioner Garry Breeden made the motion to approve the permit saying that based on expert testimony he believes the project with not generate excessive noise or traffic and would additionally be governed by Southwest Florida Water Management District and state Department of Environmental Protection regulations. Breeden also said because the county has substantial control of special use permits, it would be easy to pull the plug if the park turned out not to be in compliance with county requirements. Commission Chairman Doug Gilpin provided the second to Breedens motion saying he believes the noise and the traffic can be controlled and that the venture would be advantageous to the area. A substantial amount of time was spent as residents with property near the proposed facility voiced either their support or opposition to the plans. Most of the opposition centered on concerns that the facility would disturb the rural nature of the area and that the park did not conform to current property uses. But supporters said the park would offer anything from new County Commission OKs entertainment park Law enforcement officers have officially classified the 2006 disappearance of a Temple Terrace woman with ties to Lake Panasoffkee as a murder. Its been seven years since Sandra Hamby Prince, then 59, disappeared and had been deemed to be a missing person by the Temple Terrace Police Department. But last week, police officials reclassified her disappearance, calling it a murder and offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her murderer. Investigators believe that Prince was murdered sometime between Dec. 28, 2005 to Jan. 3, 2006, according to Temple Terrace Police Chief Ken Albano. During the early stages of an investigation, police named Earl Pippin, 59, Lake Panasoffkee, as a person of interest in the case. Last week, flyers announcing the reward were distributed through the Lake Panasoffkee area. Prince owned real estate in Lake Panasoffkee Sandra Prince Chamber set for dinner The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce has announced the recipients of its Business and Industry Awards, to be presented at the chambers Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner on Friday, Jan. 25, 6:30 p.m., at the Wildwood Community Center, 6500 Powell Road in Wildwood.

In wake of the growing number of flu cases in the nation, the state, and locally, the Sumter County Health Department is urging residents to protect themselves and their families by getting a flu shot. This flu season is early and more severe than most, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC has identified Florida, along with 29 other states and New York City as regions with high Influenza-type illness activity at the present time. The proportion of outpatient visits for the flu last week is 5.5 percent nationally, more than twice the normal level. Getting a flu shot is the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease, according to the health department. But its important to remember that once you get the shot, you still need about two weeks before the vaccination provides full protection from the illness.

and was known to frequent the area to visit friends and associates. Pippin and Prince were involved in a lengthy intimate relationship at the time of her murder, according to a police press release. Pippin continues to reside in the Lake Panasoffkee area and remains a person of interest in the case, according to police. Prince, who lived at 11507 Moffat Place, Temple Terrace, was last seen by a co-worker at her place of employment, ACTS, a substance abuse rehabilitation center, on Dec. 28, 2005, police say. A concerned neighbor reported Prince missing on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2006. Upon arrival at Princes residence, police found the back door of the house unlocked. Upon further investigation, police discovered a significant amount of Princes blood. Shortly after her disappearance, a masked man was photographed using Princes ATM card at two banks in Temple Terrace and Tampa. The $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Princes murder.

Early on in the season, we had a lot of people coming in for shots, but this time of year many people think its over with, but it looks like the peak is still ahead of us, he said. Those who may have a medical history of severe illness or a severe life threatening allergy should discuss the risks of vaccination with their doctor beforehand. See the CDC web site at http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/should-notvacc.htm for additional information. Flu shots are offered in many locations, including doctors offices, clinics, health departments and pharmacies and they are readily available. The vaccine actually contains three different strains of flu, Thomas said, including strain A which is currently the most prevalent. Thomas suggests practicing good hygiene during the flu season. Washing your hands with soap and water and working up a friction by doing so is a good way of getting rid of bacteria, he said. He also advises avoiding using your hands when you cough or sneeze, thats your connection to the world. Coughing into your elbow or using a Kleenex is recommended. Hankies arent recommended because they are not sanitary. For information about obtaining a flu shot through the Sumter County Health Department, call 352-569-3102 Bushnell or 352-330-1313 Wildwood.

The newest plans for the communtys future were unveiled Tuesday afternoon by SouthVenture Properties owners of the shopping plaza on C.R. 470 in the business area. Managing partner James Sharkey spoke to a group of residents and business owners gathered at the Allens Stardust Collection wine shop in the center. Sharkey shared the companys architectural drawings to improve the appearance of the center and a slide show with images of other properties they have acquired and renovated. He said the renovations have been planned since they acquired the property, but the state of the economy put things on hold. The plans include major changes in the front faade, with an added covered walkway and new signage. Inside renovations will include turning some of the spaces into large suites that can be leased to one or more businesses. For example, an end space that is currently one unit, will be divided into four suites each one between 18 and 19feet wide and 50-feet long. Improvements will also include night lighting and large front window glass. He said they purchase an outdoor lighting thats expensive but will save on electricity and provide 150 watts of light on 20 watts of power, thanks to its housing design. This is the seed, Sharkey said of the centers potential impact for growth in the community. It starts with this building right here. Well see where it takes us, he said, noting they also own the Economizer grocery store building and a storage unit behind the store. They have five acres of property at the site. Its a perfect corridor, he said of the growth potential, noting that his company studied the area for about six months before they purchased the property. Sharkey said they would eventually like to be able to have one continual center, connecting the shopping plaza with the grocery store. But he notes that depends on various factors, including growth of businesses in the center and government sewage. The county is currently working to obtain a sewage feasibility study. The focus is on sewage for businesses, not residences. Plans are to start the interior renovations within the next two weeks, as they work with future tenants. During that same meeting, the crowd heard from Robbie Keszey and Dr. Richard Kane, who hope to find a location for a teaching zoo in the community. Keszey said they would like to find an estimated hundred-acre area where they could house and breed wildlife, giving the public an experience with an interactive zoo. For example, there would be an observation area, where the public could watch surgeries being performed on wildlife. The men likened the facility to the Busch Gardens animal nursery and hospital, noting that its one of the most popular draws for the public. Keszey said Kane is on the advisory council for the university and the zoo would include a dorm for students working in the field as they complete their vet schooling. He pointed out that hes been offered the opportunity to work zoos in at least three different locations around the world, but would prefer to remain where his family has set down roots. They hope to provide educational live shows and to actually tape their own educational show at the facility, while bringing both attention and dollars to the community. Our goal is to attract families, he said. Sharkey gave the group a preview through a slide show with images of other properties that they have a acquired and renovated. The changing face of Lake Panasoffkee BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff WriterPolice report Suspect arrested in car lot vehicle theftSheriffs investigators in Palm Beach arrested a suspect in the recent theft of at least one vehicle and computer equipment from a Bushnell car dealership. The thefts happened sometime before 7:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2, at Town and Country Select, on E. Noble Avenue, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. Thats when an employee arrived at work and discovered that someone had broken into the business by throwing a rock through the front door glass. The employee noticed that a cars drivers door was open and then discovered that a 2008 Kia Sedona van was missing, Caruthers said. Later that day, a second vehicle, a 1995 dark blue Ford F150, was reported as stolen. Investigators are still seeking to locate that vehicle. The business also reported that several computers were taken and that the office had been ransacked, according to Caruthers. After the thefts, investigators were able to determine that the stolen van had entered the turnpike at Leesburg based on a transponder signal in the vehicle, Caruthers said. It traveled south to the West Palm Beach area. Based on a photo imagine taken at the turnpike, investigators were able to identify the driver of the van as Steven Schilb, 37, of Georgia. Schilb had been visiting in Sumter County and actually had been dropped off near the sheriffs office to turn himself in on outstanding warrants, Caruthers said. But Schilb never made it to the sheriffs office. Sumter authorities then issued an arrest warrant for burglary, grand theft auto, grand theft and criminal mischief. On Jan. 11, Palm Beach County sheriffs deputies responded to a vehicle burglary in progress and ended up arresting Schilb on local charges and holding him on the Sumter charges, Caruthers said.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY17, 2013 The war on snakesFloridas war on snakes can be directly attributed to lawmakers who capitulate to the exotic animal industry by refusing to ban wild animals being kept as pets. When you make it as simple as pulling out a credit card to buy snakes, alligators, iguanas and other exotic species, the cruel cycle begins. Animals quickly go from must have to must get rid of. Some end up in already-overburdened shelters; others are simply dumped, destined to become targets in state-sponsored killing sprees appallingly called contests. As a licensed wildlife rehabber with 15 years experience in treating societys cast-offs, I can attest that people will not change, so the laws must. Legislators must slam the door shut on the exotic pet industry once and for all. Sincerely, Early Mitchum Bonneau, S.C.Support for Hospice Chili Cook offDear Friends of Sumter County, I became passionate about the prospect of volunteering for Hospice because of my witness to the services offered by Hospice nurses during my mothers illness and passing. When it was decided to dedicate the name of the new Hospice House in Sumterville to our dear friend and community supporter, Lane Purcell, I knew I had to help. I dont know what my family would have done without the services of Hospice. Seeing the love and compassion that the Hospice nurses and volunteers had for their patients and families touched my heart. The Hospice nurses really depend on volunteers so their time can be focused on patient care. I really enjoyed my time as a volunteer, but working a full time job, I was limited to what I could contribute. I was asked to join a very small group of people who were trying to form a committee to create fund raising efforts for the Lane Purcell Hospice House. And that, my friends, is how the Spice it Up for Hospice Chili Cook off idea was put into action. A few of us gather together each year and are now planning the third annual Spice It Up For Hospice event, and we are asking for the communitys support On Saturday, February 2nd, a chili cook off will take place in downtown Bushnell. The event is located in the beautiful new park that was built on Bushnell Plaza. The event starts at 11am and chili tasting lasts until 2pm, with participants voting on their favorite flavors. For $5.00, you get a cute chili pepper necklace, a drink and an armband that entitles you to try the various spicy flavors and cast your vote for your favorite. You also vote for the best chili booth display. The day includes a family friendly atmosphere with live music by Todd Brown and the River Junction Band (who have donated their time for the last three years), dancing, hot dogs on the grill and an event long raffle drawing for wonderful prizes. LDL Enterprises in Bushnell, Bushnell Beef O Bradys, Porters Jewelers in Bushnell Bushnell Ace Hardware, Marthas Flower Shop, Hair & Nail Creations in Wildwood, Sumter Tire and Auto in Wildwood, Total Tease Salon in Bushnell and an anonymous donor have all donated for the raffle drawings for valuable items that will be given away that day. Raffle tickets are $5.00 for one, or 3 for $10.00, with all proceeds benefiting Lane Purcell Hospice House. The Florida Blood Centers Big Red Bus will be at Chili Cook off accepting Blood donations. Give the gift of Life. Blood donors will receive a free movie ticket voucher.

Cornerstone Hospice has provided comfortable care and compassionate services to our friends and neighbors facing serious illness and end of life. The Lane Purcell House was built on donated land and with funding from charitable donationsit was only possible with the generosity of people like you. In 2012, we served 867 patients and families in Sumter County. Over 200 received care at the Lane Purcell Hospice House. Today it is important that our county continues to provide charitable support in order to meet the needs of all of your neighbors, no matter their ability to pay for service. I am personally asking for your support for this event. All proceeds benefit the Lane Purcell Hospice House and patient care. Thank you and see you at the Chili cook off!! Sincerely, Susan Noell, Chairman Lane Purcell Hospice House Advisory CommitteePlaying the gameSeveral football games appeared on TV in January, 2013. In each game, teams with similar talents and records competed for the prize. Most people think its only fair to ask similar teams to compete. Nobody wants to watch a championship college team compete against a good high school team. That would not be fair and it would be a farce. In the business world, its completely different. The business leaders hire expert negotiators such as lawyers, accountants, p-r agents to negotiate with workers who may be skillful at construction, mining, teaching, nursing, but certainly they are no competition with professional negotiators. Business leaders do not want competition in labor negotiations. Business leaders do not want their employees to hire professional negotiators to speak for them when its time to discuss wages and benefits. Business leaders want the unfair and unsportsman-like arrangement where they hold all the power and demand that the workers negotiate with no help from lawyers, accountants and labor experts. Business leaders want to win the argument every time. That is why Republicans oppose professional union negotiators. Instead, Republicans support businessmen who want unfair and unbalanced negotiations with the people who do the actual work to make a successful business. In a fair and well balanced world, business leaders would make every effort to negotiate all workplace issues in a clear and transparent fashion. Who is supporting the right to work issues? American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a collusion of big business and local legislators to squash workers rights. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce creates misleading reports about right to work issues. Best, Robert Wesolowski, The Villages Give teachers the right to protect their students! B y Dr. Harold Pease One of the revelations that surfaced from the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre was that deranged gunman, Adam Lanza, carried hundreds of rounds of ammunition, enough to kill all 450 children in the school. What stopped him? Apparently he decided to kill himself when he heard police sirens and knew that the officers were nearing the scene and their guns would soon confront his. They say it takes a gun to stop a gun. Besides suggesting a possible solution, not here-to-fore considered, of having a recording of sirens approaching on some external sound system to frighten away those committing crimes on school grounds, why not give teachers and others assigned care of the children, the right to protect their students if they wish it. Just one gun somewhere on the premise could have been enough. Lanza had ten minutes of unrestrained killing time before police arrived after 911 notification and before he took his life ending the massacre. If but one armed concealed weapons permit holder had been nearby he/she could have saved perhaps eight minutes of indiscriminant slaughter. How many lives is that? This is not to suggest that every teacher must participate, only those who wish to. Hundreds of regular citizens in my county already carry concealed weapons everywhere except in gun free zones. Such is the same in most counties throughout the nation. Law enforcement normally see them as an asset, the ultimate backup should they need extra help, and also because cops know they cant be everywhere at the same time, as Sandy Hook demonstrated. Why not let them do so on school grounds as well allowing them to be an asset of protection wherever they are? It would cost the school nothing. Chances are every school already has two or three concealed weapons permit holders among its faculty and staff now. Again, why not let those who wish to protect their students do so? Permit holders are among our finest citizens. Obtaining a concealed weapons permit requires a thorough investigation, a near perfect record from law enforcement, a stated need to carry, and some training. Normally they are older more mature folks and, in the case of teachers, we already trust our children with them. They are already on the scene where a policeman could not possibly be. What a deterrent to a would-be killer if he knew schools are no longer entirely gun free. Gun free zones clearly do not work. They certainly do not keep killers away. Most massacres in the United States happen in gun-free zones. Anticipating no resistance, rather then deter, they entice killers giving them access to large groups of unprotected, good, and innocent victimsoften children. Presently the only hope that a teacher, wishing to protect his/her students, has is to hide them and at Sandy Hook that helped a few. In my classroom, as in most, there is but one door. Everyone inside, including me, has been set up by his own government to be a victim. In my classroom the door cannot be locked from inside should I hear gunfire outside. There is a small back room (often kept locked by the school because it houses sensitive computer wiring connections) where students near by could hide if they had access and time. Hopefully a potential gunman would then think no one was inside and move on to another classroombut this is not enough. Since Sandy Hook happened, I ask students sitting on the door side of the room, upon hearing gunfire from outside the room, to lineup next to the wall, remove the fire extinguisher from the wall next to a door that opens outwardly, and spray or hit the intruder as he enters. Those behind him then overwhelm the intruder after the distraction, but this is all that I can do and it is not enough. Since my students are adults this might work. Better yet, a teacher or student with a concealed weapons permit, need only pull out a weapon from pocket or purse and fire a couple of rounds at a very surprised, then very dead, killer. Elected officials, please give students and teachers a fighting chance to survive. Teachers have done nothing that should justify disarming us, or fearing us, and thus leaving us with virtually no hope of survival. You may answer, We cant just let anyone have a weapon of mass destruction! You already do!! Anyone, 16 and older, can have access to an automobile, which is decidedly a weapon of mass destructioneven if he might commit crimes with it. This brings us back to the lessons of Sandy. Adam Lanza did his deed in a location that he knew was gun free and ceased his rampage of killing only because someone else, in this case the police, would soon be firing at him. Next time let that person be a teacher with a concealed weapon whose action would allow so many more students to live. Please!Dr. Harold Pease is an expert on the United States Constitution.

Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has named Charles Chuck Lee, MA, MBA, as President and Chief Executive Officer. Lee is a veteran in the hospice industry who has led patient care operations, strategic planning, fund raising, business development, and volunteer recruitment at several hospice organizations. We are fortunate to welcome Chuck to our leadership team, commented John Moore, Cornerstone Hospice Board Chairman. His proven ability to work collaboratively to provide exceptional care while sustaining and expanding programs will benefit the organization as we move into a challenging time for health care providers. I am honored and humbled to be asked to serve the team at Cornerstone Hospice, Lee said. Cornerstone has a long tradition of excellence in serving dying persons and their loved ones in Central Florida, and Im excited to play a part in keeping that tradition strong in the years ahead. Lee, who most recently has served as Chief Operations Officer at Hospice of Chattanooga in Tennessee, will assumed his role at Cornerstone Hospice, which serves seven Central Florida counties, on January 2. In the coming years, hospice programs including Cornerstone will face daunting challenges, Lee said. Tighter regulations, changes in reimbursement, and increased competition will demand that Cornerstone enhance the quality of its service delivery, keep costs under control, and find creative new ways to ensure that our caring mission remains intact.

Front Row: Parker Strickland and Taylor Edwards. Jana Broder, The Drum Lady, is pictured leading Drum Circle workshops at Wildwood Middle High School. Last month, Jana Broder, The Drum Lady, led Drum Circle workshops at Wildwood Middle High School. This interactive presentation is by her company called Drum Magic and a part of the GEM (Grade-levelwide Enrichment Model) which is christened the WMHS Arts Integration Program. Drum Magic: A fun and cutting edge team building and stress relief Drum circle experience used effectively in a variety of Corporate and Community environments: For synchronization of thought processes. For intuitive development, stress release, and The dissolving of racial, cultural, gender and age barriers. Drum Magic comes to your corporate or college event with enough drums and trained facilitators to lead your group on a positive and exciting shared rhythm experience. With tough schedules, hard exams, financial difficulties, and other school related obligations, students need to cut loose and have serious fun. Drumming is a healthy way to achieve that fun while strengthening student relations at the same time. The common beat of the drums help synchronize your student body or corporate team in their day-to-day activities well into the future. Drumming is an invigorating physical, psychological, emotional, and deeply rooted human experience that reconnects us to ourselves and each other. Drum circles offer a participatory discovery experience. Participants may wonder, Do I have rhythm? Can I really play and sound good? Can I contribute to our community song? Guided by a Drum Magic facilitator, participants discover the answer is YES! They leave with a boosted sense of creativity and empowerment, able to explore other opportunities with deeper engagement. The event was presented to three groups, on campus: a morning session for select AVID students and students with disabilities; an afternoon session for the 8th grade GEM group of students and an after school session with teachers. This event was a tie-in to relationship building, culture, kinesthetic activity, and classroom curriculum as part of the WMHS Arts Integration Program. The program was sponsored in part by Wildwood Middle High School, Community Partners The Drum Lady visits Wildwood

Its often the most dreaded question of the day. Between school, activities, work and life, there are nights the big dinner decision doesnt happen until the last possible minute. Fortunately, the answer is probably right in your pantry canned food. Canned foods are not only convenient and budget-friendly, they reduce your cooking time and inspire whole some and delicious meals your family will love. Canned items are also one of the best ways to get food directly from the farm to your familys table. Because many fruits and vegetables are canned directly after harvest, the canning process seals in foods freshness and natural goodness, retaining their taste, quality and nutrients. Canned vegetables and fruits often provide as many vitamins and as much dietary fiber as their fresh and frozen counterparts. So when youre cooking with canned foods, you can feel confident that youre serving your family a high-quality, hearty, home-cooked meal. And, most importantly, you know whats for dinner. Its in your pantry (a.k.a. your Cantry.) For more recipes, visit www.Facebook.com/CansGetYouCooking and www.Pinterest.com/CansGetUCooking.

Blvd. Weeki Wachee, FL 34613 352-596-4000 Office Hours: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wildwood United Methodist Church is the oldest congregation in Wildwood. Established in 1881 under Pastor-W.C. Collins, the church has had some ups and downs in their more than 130year history, but recently they are experiencing a major upswing. The church has grown significantly within the past six months, more than doubling in average worship attendance. WUMC is home to the Wildwood Food Pantry, which feeds hundreds of people each month by providing enough groceries to last the families a two week period. The folks of WUMC are looking for other ways to reach out into the community and network with other organizations and churches. To accomplish this task, they are planning to hold a special community worship service with a very special guest. Sheila Raye Charles is coming to town! Ms. Charles creates her own distinct sound while delivering her intensely inspiring message of hope and love. As a talented singer/songwriter, she has found her voice in acoustic jazz and R & B with lyrics that deliver the personal journey of her own life and her relationship with her legendary father, Ray Charles. At age 19, with great courage, she defied her fathers wishes and pursued music. Demonstrating her commitment and her talent, her father actually brought her and her band into his studio and personally produced several songs. Through a series of life changing events, her music career waned as she gathered a lifetime of experiences which, today, give great meaning and countenance to her music. Today, Charles is called upon to provide skin tingling renditions of her fathers best known songs from America the Beautiful to Hit The Road Jack to Georgia from jazz festivals to places of worship. As an entertaining and engaging vocalist, Charles is able to inspire her audiences with stories of her life challenges of drug addiction and recovery, of her spiritual journey and personal growth while at the same time delivering meaty, life giving music. With the publication of her life story, Behind the Shades, Charles provides insight into her life and her path to God. Ms. Charles will be on hand to sign her book and pictures after the service. We often times feel isolated in our efforts to help hurting people. We want to offer an opportunity for all the churches in our community to come together for a special moment that may grow into something miraculous. stated Rev. Michael Beck, the senior pastor at WUMC. We know there are huge problems with alcoholism and addiction, poverty, and incarceration in our community, we believe Sheilas testimony will bring people together and give us hope in the midst of crisis. said Beck who himself was born addicted and fought through his own battle with alcohol, drugs, and incarceration. Ms. Charles will bless the community in song and word at 11 a.m. Sunday morning Feb. 3, at Wildwood United Methodist Church. All people are invited to attend the service. WUMC is hopeful that other congregations will feel welcome to participate in this significant event for the Wildwood community. Ray Charles daughter to perform at Wildwood United Methodist Brewster is a 3to 4-year-old Shih Tzu/terrier mix. Brewster is a sweet boy that does well with others, but would be best fed separately. Neutered, current on his vaccines and microchipped Brewster is ready to come home with you. If you are interested in him or any of the Humane Societys other great pets check them out on our website at www.hsspca.org, call the office Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m PET OF WEEK

On a beautiful Saturday morning, out we went again for a walk with our dogs; Betty Hall with her dog Shane, and me with my dog Hanna Banana. Betty wanted to check out a trail she spotted from the road in Lake Panasoffkee. Nature trail walks are becoming an enjoyable weekend occurrence. Our walks are not only great physical exercise, but good mental stimulation for both humans and dogs. This particular trail didnt go that far, and ended at the river. There I spotted an egret on the opposite bank of the river. Betty and I are both nature lovers, and we always carry our cameras with us to capture wildlife and natural landscapes. Betty wanted to get a picture, and so I held the dogs back. She slowly creped up and on to the dock, very careful not to move quickly, she stayed low to the ground so as to get a closer picture of the bird. After taking several pictures, it was my turn, and so she held the dogs back while I went onto the dock, again moving slowly so as not to scare the bird, and to get a few pictures. But something was very odd. The bird never moved. Yes we were very careful not to scare it, but there was absolutely no movement at all. Even when a very loud truck passed over a nearby bridge, the bird never moved. We stood there for a good 10 minutes, and the egret remain absolutely still. Suddenly we thought that maybe it was a decoy bird, which started us laughing. Our imaginations took over, and as we visualized our selves creeping up on a fake bird, we laughed even more. Then we thought; what if there was a camera in the fake bird, and we were being video taped, and we two ridiculous ladies may go viral on the internet making fools of our selves. That really got us going with laughter. Finally, we decided to turn around to leave, and continued our walk. Off we went, with the dogs back to sniffing all the rich scents of the area while exercising their minds and bodies. One last time, just one last time, we had to walk back and check on that egret. And sure enough there it was, still standing in the same spot and in the same position. Ok now we were sure it was a decoy bird, and as we turned to walk away It moved!!! It started to walk around the river bank. We started laughing again. What a relief to know that we were not going to be going viral on the internet. But gee what a great joke that would have been to play on someone. So there you have it. Betty and I still laugh about it. I dont know if anyone else would find it as humorous as we do. Maybe you just had to be there. Critter chatter Maybe You Had to Be There Linda Graves Sumter DART I spotted an egret on the opposite bank of the river. SPORTS The South Sumter High girls soccer team needed a hero Monday and she was Kylie Lovett. The South Sumter High girls continued their season by beating Umatilla 1-0 in overtime Monday in the Class 2A-District 6 tournament at Ocala Trinity Catholic. Lovett scored the winning goal in overtime Monday. She kind of dribbled up the side, took everybody on and shot it in from five yards, said coach Kassy Boivin. The teams leading scorer is Daisy Hernandez, who is out with an allergic reaction. She is a senior and one of three captains. She may play Wednesday. Results of the Wednesday match were not available at press time. Lovett is the teams second leading goal scorer. She plays club soccer. South Sumter (9-5-2), the third seed, was to face Crystal River, the second seed Wednesday. Crystal River beat South Sumter 3-0 in the regular season. Crystal River beat Pierson Taylor Monday. This is the third year of coaching for Boivin. She played at Columbus State University in Georgia before coming South Sumter. She played at Countryside High School in Clearwater. This is the best year the program has ever had, she said. It was a different mind set this year. Everyone took it more seriously. The games werent an option. I had to kick a few girls off the team. I had to break some bad habits. We have a pretty strong defense. Kelsey Current, a sophomore, came out for the team for the first time and ended up as goalkeeper. She is super athletic and has been doing great. She plays club soccer. Freshman Shelbie Lovett, Kylies sister, played left defender, and is solid. Every game, I can count on her. She also plays club soccer. Daisy has scored so many goals. Kylie is the captain. She is a natural leader and one of the captains. Lovett hits winning goal as South Sumter girls win 1-0 LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent A remarkable thing happened Thursday in the Zephyrhills High-South Sumter High girls basketball game at the Raiders gym. Zephyrhills (5-13) could not score a point in the second quarter. Meanwhile, South Sumters sophomoredominated team scored 15 points. The Raiders (7-10) rolled onto a 51-28 victory that night. Kyra Bannister hit 22 points to lead all scorers. Zenia Carter hit 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Raiders. Bannister scored seven of her points in the first quarter when the visiting Bulldogs actually led 12-11. Carter scored 12 points in the second quarter when the Raiders were on the roll. South Sumter actually scored 19 unanswered points. They led 26-12 at half and the game was clearly over in the second quarter. I guess the adrenaline, Bannister said when asked about that remarkable second period. We started the season with no wins. We work really hard. The Raiders coach explained that eight-minute period. We were pressing, said coach Kimberly Borum. We have been really good at pressing. Its just the defense. We shift the defense back into a zone. We have been playing really well after Christmas. We are attacking offensively better. Anybody that touches the ball, we want to attack. The more shots we get off, the better chances we have of getting points on the scoreboard. Bannister is averaging 15 points per game and her coach is happy with her progress. Kyra has really stepped up her knowledge of the game of basketball, said Borum. She is just a sophomore. She is learning how to control the ball better, how to control her body better, how to read the defense. She is starting to pick up her game to be the quarterback we need in the game of basketball. We are excited to have her for two more years. Bannister scored eight points in the third quarter as the Raiders outscored their foes 13-6. Reserves flooded the floor as South Sumter beat the Bulldogs 12-8 in the fourth quarter. Bannister led with six points. South Sumter will have two home games this week. They play Mount Dora Thursday and Lake Mineola Friday. Raider girls take victory game
