PET of the WEEK Thursday, January 24, 2013Volume 127 Number 4Established 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 Royal building demolished Hundreds of residents concerned about the future of the recently demolished Royal Fire Department had been hopeful that the county would save the building and allow a local community group to take over the building and convert the facility into a second or backup community building. They were so intent in keeping the building that on Jan. 8, the County Commission was presented with a petition signed by a few hundred people asking that the group, named Community of Royal Inc., be allowed to refurbish and maintain the structure. Commissioners had been considering the fate of the vacant building since the facility was closed early last year. At a workshop meeting on Dec. 18, 2012, commissioners favored demolishing the building after reviewing several options. However, no action can be taken at a workshop meeting. The next time the issue was discussed was at the Jan. 8 meeting. The topic was not listed on the agenda but instead discussed during the public forum portion of the meeting. Leading the effort to save and secure the building was Cliff Hughes, chairman of the Community of Royal Inc. Hughes told commissioners our plan would be to make this building our headquarters. We are planning to coordinate after school programs for students in the community and different types of activities for the seniors. Hughes said the building could also be used as a backup to the existing Royal Community Center which is often booked up to four months in advance.

Scholarship recipients MLK DAY A weekend honoring the memory of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. included a variety of events as Parsons Circle Community Outreach Inc. and local churches launched an inaugural MLK Celebration Weekend with the theme: Moving Forward from a Dream 2 Reality. The weekend started Saturday morning with a scholarship award breakfast at the Bushnell Community Center. Organizer Mildred Milligan welcomed participants to the event. Milligan said the program was held to not only honor King but also to provide a community service to help youngsters and families come together and rebuild their lives. The guest speaker for the event, Peter T. Stevenson, a professor and a graduate of South Sumter High School, talked about overcoming obstacles that youngsters may face in their journey through life. As part of the program, two scholarships were awarded to local students. They were given to DeMarques Bellumy, 17, and Brandy Zagrocki, 18, both South Sumter High School students. The scholarships were provided following the students submissions of essays on how a scholarship can help them with Moving Forward from a Dream 2 Reality.

With a new year comes new leadership and on January 16th the LakeSumter State College Foundation, Inc. installed its new officers and welcomed 10 new board members to the LSSC Family for the upcoming year and also recognized the service and support of six outgoing board members. As the principal fund-raising organization for Lake-Sumter State College, the Board of Directors play a crucial role in the success of the college with their assistance to the Foundation in generating private gifts to the college that includes support for students, faculty, staff and instruction. The new executive committee includes: President, Harry Hackney with Campione & Hackney, Attorneys at Law; President-Elect, Tim McRae with Akers Media Group; Vice-President, George Davis with Insight Credit Union and Lori Farfaglia with United Southern Bank; Treasurer, Mac Andrews with Andrews & Miller, PA; Secretary/Executive Director, Rosanne Brandeburg; Past-President, Steve Knowles with CenterState Bank; Board of Trustees Liaison, Margo Odom; LSSC President, Dr. Chuck Mojock and Faculty Liaison, Debra Dabney. We are extremely pleased to welcome our new officers and board members, said Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director of the Foundation. Through their leadership, LSSC will continue to provide the opportunities for higher education to our students, community partners, as well as to provide the insight and guidance our community has come to expect. We installed 10 new board members including: Karen Bent, Gary Brannen, Ben Burnsed, Jimmy Crawford, Darren Gray, Fred Jones, Rene ODay, Sean Parks, Cara Singeltary and Sandra Stephenson, all of whom have been working with the LSSC Foundation in supporting the college, and have hit the ground running with their support of our mission. I am looking forward to serving as the President of the Foundation this year, said Harry Hackney. It is such a great opportunity to work with all of the officers and board members. Helping someone achieve an education pays dividends to the community far into the future. It is a cause with an enduring legacy. Consequently, LSSC attracts high quality people to its Foundation. You cant fail with people like that working together for a good cause, and I know were going to have a great year. The annual meeting highlighted the accomplishments of the Foundation over the past year which included receiving $2,327,722 to be used toward the mission of the Foundation, and awarded 747 scholarships totaling over $527,340 to LSSC students in 2012. The LSSC Foundations mission is to help provide excellence in education, service to the community and financial assistance to qualified students. For more information about the LSSC Foundation, please call Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director at (352) 3653518. Royal Fire Station would not help or improve the community, Hughes told commissioners. It would hurt us. We would lose a historical building that has been a permanent fixture in the community for over twenty years. We would lose the opportunity to provide a structured and safe environment in which the community can excel, he said. We would lose much more than just a building. Commissioner Garry Breeden said his concern is that it would cost the group between $30,000 and $40,000 a year to maintain and provide electricity for the building plus the building would have to be brought up to code. Breeden said he has concerns that if the building was provided to the organization, at some point it would come back to us. We havent seen anything that says the group can afford $40,000 a year to maintain it, he said. Hughes countered saying the group had not been given an opportunity to provide that information because the last time the County Commission discussed the issue was at a workshop meeting where no public input is taken. We have not had an opportunity to discuss it with you since the workshop meeting, he said. Commissioner Doug Gilpin added that he considers the building to be a liability if something happens or someone gets hurt. Gilpin also voice concerns that giving a county building back to a community group would set precedence for other people wanting other buildings. While the board took no formal action at the meeting, the fire department building was demolished last Thursday, Jan. 17, based on the consensus agreement reached at the workshop, and a wire fence erected around the remaining slab. The slab was expected to be removed this week. Tuesday, Jan. 15 Kayla Ann Avera, 27, Oxford, arrested for sale and possession of methamphetamine and dangerous drugs. Bond at $60,500.

P AGE A4SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 24, 2013 Commissioners did Royal disservice T he County Commission has done a real disservice to the community of Royal concerning the recent demolition of the community fire department. The way the board agreed to demolish the building was not appropriate and left concerned Royal residents with no way to counter the boards actions or even allow those residents to provide a method of maintaining the building. What a slap in the face to many of the older residents of the community who remember when that fire department was built. It was concerned community leaders that brought that fire department to fruition in the first place, not the County Commission. The county didnt provide the money to build that fire department. The funding came from the state in the form of a community development block grant. It was a great windfall for Royal and left other county fire departments envious because of the way the facility was built. The old timers know that and they should be upset with the lack of concern and respect this board has shown them. Granted, the building had been turned over to the county and became county property, but no respect was shown by the board for the concerns of this group. But honestly, you dont have to be an old timer to see that this issue wasnt handled properly. The board, in a Dec. 2012 workshop meeting, favored the option of demolishing the vacant fire department. But according to its governing laws, the board cannot take action during a workshop meeting. It must wait until a regular board meeting to vote upon actions. That never happened. Commissioners say they made their decision by consensus during the workshop meeting. What? Thats not the way the County Commission operates. Workshop meetings are closed to public input. So residents who may have wanted to speak and work out a way to save the fire department were muffled. They had to wait until a regular board meeting. But when that board meeting came around, the decision had already been made and that wasnt a proper way to decide an issue that was so important to an entire community. Gun Control in 1935 and now in 2013 This year (1935) will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has FULL (gun) REGISTRATION. (data base) Our Streets (schools) will be safe, Our police more efficient, and The world will follow our lead in the future. Adolph Hitler stated this in 1935. Barrack Obama made a similar statement in 2013 I had many relatives of all ages who lived in Germany in 1935. They were labeled as politically incorrect because they did not agree with Hitlers agenda. Because they disagreed with Hitler, they were diagnosed as mentally ill. Registration revealed that they had guns. Because they were designated as mentally ill, their guns were confiscated by the government and they were gathered together with the other mentally ill (gun owners) and were exterminated. Gun controls or bans were not necessary. Full registration (data base) of guns revealed the names of the gun owners and a swift diagnosis of mental illness accomplished the goal. Requiring a gun for protection was an indication that a person was against the government and thereby was mentally ill. The need for a gun was not necessary because the government protected the people. History books do not necessarily contain this information. We, the citizens of the U.S. A., do not understand that we are repeating that which has already happened. The outcome was tragic. Gertrude C. Dickinson Lake Panasoffkee SECO rank their co-op as one of the best SECO members recently got to voice their opinions on their Co-ops performance during 2012. A comprehensive customer satisfaction telephone survey was conducted in late November and December and the results have now been tabulated. The bottom line is that the members gave SECO a great report card. The survey, conducted annually on behalf of SECO by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, lets SECO officials know what is on their member/consumers minds and how well they think their utility is being run. Barry Bowman, SECO Director of Corporate Communications, said, A statistically valid sample of members in Marion, Lake, Citrus and Sumter counties were surveyed. Overall, members continue to think very highly of their cooperative with a mean overall satisfaction rating of 9.21 on a 10-point scale with the vast majority of members giving SECO ratings of 9 or 10. Bowman noted that the coop scored very well on having courteous and friendly employees, having accurate and understandable bills, helping to resolve problems, supporting the local community, being environmentally sensitive, minimizing longer outages and restoring power quickly after an outage, keeping members informed, and delivering good value for the money to name a few of the categories. The survey also contained a series of standardized questions that enable SECO to be compared to other utilities who seek to rate themselves on the nationally recognized American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). SECO CEO Jim Duncan said, On this particular index a score like SECOs ACSI score of 89 is considered to be extremely high. Our index ranking for 2012 represents one of the highest in the industry and ranked six points higher than the average for the nations Touchstone Energy Cooperatives and much higher than the ranked investor-owned electric utilities in Florida and elsewhere. We appreciate the input of our members. Their thoughts help us stay on top of what is important to them. Their overwhelming outpouring of positive responses to the 2012 survey pushed SECOs customer satisfaction ranking to record heights. So, I want to express my personal thanks to our members for participating in the survey process and for their confidence in our operations. For our part, we will continue to keep the focus on providing our members with best customer service possible, Duncan concluded.

OPINIONS INVITED Business brief Sumter County Times O pinion Letter to the editor Other voices The Fabric is TornIt is time to look at the root cause of mass killings. The horror of Newtown has already resulted in an outcry for more gun control. This is an understandable reaction, but to focus on it prevents us from doing the hard work of analyzing the fundamental, root cause of mass killings. While there is no question that we must take serious measures to prevent guns from falling into the hands of those who would misuse them, such as requiring background checks for all gun purchases, outlawing the instrumentality of the Newtown killings will not stop the massacres. The worst killing of elementary school children in the United States occurred in 1927 at Bath Consolidated School in Bath Township, Michigan. A mentally ill farmer used explosives to kill 38 children. In 1995, Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people in Oklahoma City, including 19 small children, using fertilizer, diesel fuel, and a rental truck. Mass killings are perpetrated by those who are mentally ill and who are willing to give up their own life to accomplish the task. They are planned. More gun control will not serve to stop them anymore than tighter controls on diesel fuel and rental trucks will. Now is not the time to focus the discussion on gun control; we must find and solve the root causes of mass killings. The starting point is the question, What causes someone to do this? The next question is, How can we recognize them before they act and intervene to prevent it? These are hard and complex questions but until we answer them, we are not going to reduce or stop horrific tragedies like Oklahoma City, Virginia Tech, and Newtown. Most of the mass killers are males who have at least a high school education. They are mentally ill to the point of suicide. Whether they were born with mental illness or it developed as they grew older, we must ask ourselves how we have failed as a society to recognize it and to intervene timely. Here are some areas where we can look for answers along with some suggestions on steps we can take to stop mass killings. Parenting Parenting has always been important. Now, with the instability in our mobile society, the importance of parenting has increased. The state of our economy often requires that both parents work. So who is raising the children? Television? The Internet? Their friends? When our economy is in such a state that working people with children have to get Food Stamps to feed their families, things are way out of balance. Our economy must be structured so that it gives working people a good living without both parents having to spend so much time at work that there is no time left to parent. Education System School is a wonderful place for most children. It is a very cruel place for the children who are left out of the social circles, activities, and friendships that most children enjoy. We have made great progress against bullying in schools. Now, it is time to train our teachers and school personnel to recognize the children who are not included in social activities, those who are left out, who are socially ostracized, and to come up with appropriate interventions to diagnose and treat these cases before they develop into personalities who become so antisocial that they harm themselves and others. Church Attendance Over the last two decades, church attendance has dropped dramatically in the United States. With very few exceptions, the Judeo-Christian based faiths have the same core beliefs. One of them is the Golden Rule Do Unto Others as You Would Have Them Do Unto You. It is well documented that the more examples and messages of good behavior that people are exposed to, the better their own behavior becomes. Mental Health America has the best trauma care in the world. We rank below some third world countries in most other areas of health care. The philosophy of fix it instead of prevent it has pervaded all disciplines of health care, including mental health. Ready access to health care for all Americans regardless of financial means, including mental health care, is long overdue. A word about cost if other first world countries (Taiwan, Canada, England) can find a way to pay for it, we can. The price we cannot pay is another Newtown massacre.

The last thing Pastor Strickland expected to find buried on the church property was a safe. Pastor Strickland didnt know the combination, but it didnt matter, because the door was gone. And the safe was empty. Last fall, when ground was broken for the new sanctuary at Oxford Assembly of God, workers unearthed an antique safe. It was found below what used to be a paved area between the current church and Highway 301. Although the old safe is only 3 square feet, it took heavy equipment to even lift it. Oxford Assembly of God meets at the location of the old Oxford Elementary School. So do you have a clue as to the story of the old safe? Help us solve this mystery. Thanks!

course is free for those qualifying. The program was implemented in response to HR 218 Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004, and is approved by the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission. HR 218 is part of Homeland Securitys effort after the 9-11 attack on the United States. Sheriff Bill Farmer notes the program benefits the sheriffs office and residents as well, by putting additional eyes and ears out on the street to watch out for the community. The event includes checking of the weapons by course leader Lt. Gene Evans and several rounds of target practice that allow range instructors to observe how applicants handle their weapons and how well they do with aim. Each instructor is responsible for two applicants. The target practice begins with one round from the hip at the three-yard line, then low ready bringing the weapon up from a down angle. The third trial is from the holster at seven yards for a series of rounds. Theres a mandatory reload drill with 12 rounds fired from seven yards and finally, six rounds fired from 15 yards, according to Lt. Zeke Shaw. Many of the applicants come out in groups and most are from The Villages, though they come from around Sumter and surrounding counties as well. Farmer said they had one retired Secret Service agent that also qualifies through the local course. During his years of service, the agent worked security details for the Bush administration. Other officers came from surrounding counties people like Pete Levak, who is retired from Citrus County Sheriffs Office; Kim Kaminski and Joe McElligott from Blue Island, IL. Kaminski retired to Florida after 26 years with the force, while McElligott spent 35 years, retiring as a sergeant. Denny Reed had 20 years in Washington, D.C. his time including serving as a police officer and canine trainer.

PET OF THE WEEK It was a heartbreaker for the South Sumter High girls soccer team. Crystal River High beat South Sumter 3-2 in overtime Wednesday to win the semifinal game of the Class 2A-District 6 Tournament at Ocala Trinity Catholic. Crystal Rivers Aubrie Menster hit both the winning shot and the gametying shot. The game winner came with 3:30 left in the overtime. Crystal River lost 8-0 to Trinity Catholic in the district title game Friday night. It was a real nice shot from 30 yards out, said Kassy Boivin, the South Sumter coach said of the winning shot. The first South Sumter goal was scored Kylie Lovett on a free kick from 25 yards out. The second goal was by Erica Lovett. Daisy Hernandez hit a through ball and Erica played it against the goalkeeper. It was a great through ball by Daisy Hernandez, the coach said. That put us up 2-1. We were winning 2-1 until a minute 30 left in the game. They tied it 2-2. There was four minutes left in the first overtime when they scored. It was golden. When someone scores and it is over. It was emotional. We have never gone past that semifinal. We were really playing defensively trying to hold them. Their strong point is shooting. We were trying to not let them shoot. South Sumter was 9-6-2 overall for the season. It was the Raiders best record ever. Daisy Hernandez, a senior, was the leading scorer. Kylie Lovett was the second leading scorer. She is a junior. Kelsey Current was the starting goalkeeper. She is a sophomore. Amy Lopez, a senior captain center midfielder, is someone we are going to miss, said Boivin. She had a good season. The coach appreciated the work of her girls. We worked well together as a team, the coach said. We worked hard. We started conditioning in September. We were fit. We had a lot of fun this year. I am really proud of them. Im not disappointed. South Sumter soccer Crystal River nips South Sumter 3-2 to end year L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent We worked well together as a team, the coach said. We worked hard. We started conditioning in September. We were fit. We had a lot of fun this year. I am really proud of them.

St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Bushnell has a new pastor Rev. Waldemar Maciag. Hes been a priest since 1997 and comes most recently from St. Pauls Catholic Church in Leesburg where he served as parochial vicar for three years. Born in Czestochowa, Poland during the Communist rule, he developed a love for God instilled by his parents and grandparents. He always dreamed he would someday be a pilot or an artist until the day he answered Gods call. Ordained in 1997, he worked in Poland for three years followed by six years in Sweden. During his first four years in the United States, he was assigned to Holy Family in Orlando and affectionately called Fr. V by the children. He brings with him a wealth of God-given talents as an artist and musician. As he served in Sweden, he created an exhibition of the cross which was visited by people from all over the world. A compilation of photographs of this exhibition was a gift he personally presented to John Paul II. During his years serving in Europe, he developed a youth group program for his diocese, brought several Taize prayer services to his parish and created an Altar Server Formation program. When he arrived in Orlando, he was quickly embraced by his parishioners, many of whom supported him in his first exhibition in the United States. His work, Sacred Illuminations, graced the walls of the museum at the Basilica in Orlando for three months where thousands of Catholics and nonCatholics where able to experience Gods magnificence through his paintings. While at Holy Family, he also developed and altar server program that is still in use today. When he was transferred to St. Pauls in Leesburg, he quickly began his work with the community, helping them develop a deeper love of God and the faith. He worked with the school children, playing his guitar for them, teaching them about the Eucharistic Celebration and worked to help them develop their faith formation. Fr. V did his seminary work in Poland where he graduated with three masters degrees Liturgy, Theology and Philosophy. He responded to Bishop Noonan with his acceptance of his appointment in Bushnell, effective September 1, 2012. The church holds weekend masses at 4 p.m. on Saturday and at 10 a.m. on Sunday in English and at 12:15 p.m.on Sunday, in Spanish.

The SECO Board of Trustees has voted to continue SECOs scholarship program for 2013. In fact, the Board has authorized an increase in the scholarship amount taking it from $2,500 up to $3,000 per student in recognition of the ever increasing cost of higher education. Up to twelve deserving high school seniors from the cooperatives service territory will receive assistance to go on to a college or technical school following their graduation. SECOs scholarship program has proven very popular with SECO members and, over the years, has helped many deserving students attain higher learning when that might have been difficult otherwise. SECO Director of Corporate Communications Barry Bowman said, The selection of those students who will receive scholarships will be based on each individuals past and present activities in school and the community, financial need and scholastic record. All applicants will be evaluated by an independent panel of educators from around the SECO service territory. He noted that to qualify, graduates must reside in a home being served by SECO and be enrolled in an accredited college, university or vocational/technical school by the end of 2013. Applications are now available at area high school guidance offices and at any of SECOs customer service centers in Marion, Lake, Citrus, and Sumter counties. They must be returned to SECO no later than March 29, 2013. The SECO scholarship program reaffirms the Co-ops commitment to the future of our young people, and while the program has no impact on the cost of electricity, it is a significant benefit for those awardees struggling to fund their higher education, concluded Bowman. The Sumter County Retired Educators Association met Thursday, Jan.10, in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church, Bushnell. The meeting was called to order by Laura Shuyler, president. Alice Johnson gave the devotional on friends. Marilyn Barnes welcomed newest member, Evelyn Hill. The treasurers report was given by Horton Barnes, treasurer. Mary Simmons, chairman of the Volunteers Services committee, reminded all members that their Volunteer Hours reports are due in March. Our project for the spring months is to collect socks for veterans. All were urged to participate.Laura Shuyler introduced our speaker, Paul Provance. Paul works with the Guardian as Litem program for children. After a very interesting and informational presentation by Paul, everyone enjoyed a soup and sandwich lunch. The next meeting will be March 7, at 10:45 a.m. at the First Baptist Church, Bushnell. All retired educators are invited to attend. If you have questions, call Laura at 793-4555.

No need to kiss frogs for an unbelievable deal... not when you can get an entire year of the Sumter County Times for... JUST $25 T his past weekend, we attended the Jack Russell Terrier Trials in Ocala, sponsered by the Sunshine State Jack Russell Terrier Club, the only Florida club affiliated with the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America. The club boosts approximately 150 members, not only in Florida, but throughout the country and Canada. They are a friendly and supportive group of people who love the spunky breed. They promote their breed of choice through education, training, competition and rescue. The sporting event features the very popular JRT races, go to ground, the thunder tunnel, confirmation, agility, and brush hunting. The races started at 8:30 am. The intense little Jacks were like firecrackers, racing down the track after the lure. Their excitement and intense drive to catch the lure is a thrilling and fun event for this highly active breed as well as for their humans. With the little spitfires rearing to go, their loyal owners were more than willing to accomodate their dogs. The course is a straight track, a minimum of 150 feet long to 225 feet long. All Jacks are muzzled for their own safety and the handlers safety. The races started out as flat racing and later hurdles were added. Let me tell you, watching those little dogs flat out fly over those hurdles is so exciting! These cool little dogs are naturally hot wired for action! This was the second year I attended the event, and I brought Hanna Banana, my JRT mix, and Moon Pie, my little shortie rough coat JRT. Every Jack in the crowd becomes wild with excitement as soon as the lure is pulled out on the cable, and my two dogs were no exception. When the racing Jacks are released to chase the lure, both terriers and humans are caught up in the excitement of the thrill of the race. JRTs of all ages, sizes, and varying coats and markings were attending the two day event. The JRT people were very friendly, helpful and supportive. Good sportsmanship was first and foremost, along with everyone including the dogs having a great time. After the races, Hanna Banana and Moon Pie got to experience brush hunting and the thunder tunnel. They even got the opportunity to chase a lure in a long round race track. Later we sat and watched dogs showing in confirmation. I am smitten by the breed. I love their fiesty personalities and their adorable expressions. Jack Russell Terriers are bred for hunting. They are bold, assertive, intelligent, and have boundless energy. They are not a dog for everyone, but for those who love and understand the fiesty breed, and are able to give the dog the outdoor activities and exercise it requires, they are a joy to be with. Pictured are racing Jack Russell Terriers jumping the hurdles and chasing the lure. JRTs, a fun and fiesty breed Linda Graves Sumter DART

PET of the WEEK Thursday, January 24, 2013Volume 127 Number 4Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES INSIDE: QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY Royal building demolished Hundreds of residents concerned about the future of the recently demolished Royal Fire Department had been hopeful that the county would save the building and allow a local community group to take over the building and convert the facility into a second or backup community building. They were so intent in keeping the building that on Jan. 8, the County Commission was presented with a petition signed by a few hundred people asking that the group, named Community of Royal Inc., be allowed to refurbish and maintain the structure. Commissioners had been considering the fate of the vacant building since the facility was closed early last year. At a workshop meeting on Dec. 18, 2012, commissioners favored demolishing the building after reviewing several options. However, no action can be taken at a workshop meeting. The next time the issue was discussed was at the Jan. 8 meeting. The topic was not listed on the agenda but instead discussed during the public forum portion of the meeting. Leading the effort to save and secure the building was Cliff Hughes, chairman of the Community of Royal Inc. Hughes told commissioners our plan would be to make this building our headquarters. We are planning to coordinate after school programs for students in the community and different types of activities for the seniors. Hughes said the building could also be used as a backup to the existing Royal Community Center which is often booked up to four months in advance.

Scholarship recipients MLK DAY A weekend honoring the memory of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. included a variety of events as Parsons Circle Community Outreach Inc. and local churches launched an inaugural MLK Celebration Weekend with the theme: Moving Forward from a Dream 2 Reality. The weekend started Saturday morning with a scholarship award breakfast at the Bushnell Community Center. Organizer Mildred Milligan welcomed participants to the event. Milligan said the program was held to not only honor King but also to provide a community service to help youngsters and families come together and rebuild their lives. The guest speaker for the event, Peter T. Stevenson, a professor and a graduate of South Sumter High School, talked about overcoming obstacles that youngsters may face in their journey through life. As part of the program, two scholarships were awarded to local students. They were given to DeMarques Bellumy, 17, and Brandy Zagrocki, 18, both South Sumter High School students. The scholarships were provided following the students submissions of essays on how a scholarship can help them with Moving Forward from a Dream 2 Reality.

With a new year comes new leadership and on January 16th the LakeSumter State College Foundation, Inc. installed its new officers and welcomed 10 new board members to the LSSC Family for the upcoming year and also recognized the service and support of six outgoing board members. As the principal fund-raising organization for Lake-Sumter State College, the Board of Directors play a crucial role in the success of the college with their assistance to the Foundation in generating private gifts to the college that includes support for students, faculty, staff and instruction. The new executive committee includes: President, Harry Hackney with Campione & Hackney, Attorneys at Law; President-Elect, Tim McRae with Akers Media Group; Vice-President, George Davis with Insight Credit Union and Lori Farfaglia with United Southern Bank; Treasurer, Mac Andrews with Andrews & Miller, PA; Secretary/Executive Director, Rosanne Brandeburg; Past-President, Steve Knowles with CenterState Bank; Board of Trustees Liaison, Margo Odom; LSSC President, Dr. Chuck Mojock and Faculty Liaison, Debra Dabney. We are extremely pleased to welcome our new officers and board members, said Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director of the Foundation. Through their leadership, LSSC will continue to provide the opportunities for higher education to our students, community partners, as well as to provide the insight and guidance our community has come to expect. We installed 10 new board members including: Karen Bent, Gary Brannen, Ben Burnsed, Jimmy Crawford, Darren Gray, Fred Jones, Rene ODay, Sean Parks, Cara Singeltary and Sandra Stephenson, all of whom have been working with the LSSC Foundation in supporting the college, and have hit the ground running with their support of our mission. I am looking forward to serving as the President of the Foundation this year, said Harry Hackney. It is such a great opportunity to work with all of the officers and board members. Helping someone achieve an education pays dividends to the community far into the future. It is a cause with an enduring legacy. Consequently, LSSC attracts high quality people to its Foundation. You cant fail with people like that working together for a good cause, and I know were going to have a great year. The annual meeting highlighted the accomplishments of the Foundation over the past year which included receiving $2,327,722 to be used toward the mission of the Foundation, and awarded 747 scholarships totaling over $527,340 to LSSC students in 2012. The LSSC Foundations mission is to help provide excellence in education, service to the community and financial assistance to qualified students. For more information about the LSSC Foundation, please call Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director at (352) 3653518. Royal Fire Station would not help or improve the community, Hughes told commissioners. It would hurt us. We would lose a historical building that has been a permanent fixture in the community for over twenty years. We would lose the opportunity to provide a structured and safe environment in which the community can excel, he said. We would lose much more than just a building. Commissioner Garry Breeden said his concern is that it would cost the group between $30,000 and $40,000 a year to maintain and provide electricity for the building plus the building would have to be brought up to code. Breeden said he has concerns that if the building was provided to the organization, at some point it would come back to us. We havent seen anything that says the group can afford $40,000 a year to maintain it, he said. Hughes countered saying the group had not been given an opportunity to provide that information because the last time the County Commission discussed the issue was at a workshop meeting where no public input is taken. We have not had an opportunity to discuss it with you since the workshop meeting, he said. Commissioner Doug Gilpin added that he considers the building to be a liability if something happens or someone gets hurt. Gilpin also voice concerns that giving a county building back to a community group would set precedence for other people wanting other buildings. While the board took no formal action at the meeting, the fire department building was demolished last Thursday, Jan. 17, based on the consensus agreement reached at the workshop, and a wire fence erected around the remaining slab. The slab was expected to be removed this week. Tuesday, Jan. 15 Kayla Ann Avera, 27, Oxford, arrested for sale and possession of methamphetamine and dangerous drugs. Bond at $60,500.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY24, 2013 Commissioners did Royal disservice The County Commission has done a real disservice to the community of Royal concerning the recent demolition of the community fire department. The way the board agreed to demolish the building was not appropriate and left concerned Royal residents with no way to counter the boards actions or even allow those residents to provide a method of maintaining the building. What a slap in the face to many of the older residents of the community who remember when that fire department was built. It was concerned community leaders that brought that fire department to fruition in the first place, not the County Commission. The county didnt provide the money to build that fire department. The funding came from the state in the form of a community development block grant. It was a great windfall for Royal and left other county fire departments envious because of the way the facility was built. The old timers know that and they should be upset with the lack of concern and respect this board has shown them. Granted, the building had been turned over to the county and became county property, but no respect was shown by the board for the concerns of this group. But honestly, you dont have to be an old timer to see that this issue wasnt handled properly. The board, in a Dec. 2012 workshop meeting, favored the option of demolishing the vacant fire department. But according to its governing laws, the board cannot take action during a workshop meeting. It must wait until a regular board meeting to vote upon actions. That never happened. Commissioners say they made their decision by consensus during the workshop meeting. What? Thats not the way the County Commission operates. Workshop meetings are closed to public input. So residents who may have wanted to speak and work out a way to save the fire department were muffled. They had to wait until a regular board meeting. But when that board meeting came around, the decision had already been made and that wasnt a proper way to decide an issue that was so important to an entire community. Gun Control in 1935 and now in 2013This year (1935) will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has FULL (gun) REGISTRATION. (data base) Our Streets (schools) will be safe, Our police more efficient, and The world will follow our lead in the future. Adolph Hitler stated this in 1935. Barrack Obama made a similar statement in 2013 I had many relatives of all ages who lived in Germany in 1935. They were labeled as politically incorrect because they did not agree with Hitlers agenda. Because they disagreed with Hitler, they were diagnosed as mentally ill. Registration revealed that they had guns. Because they were designated as mentally ill, their guns were confiscated by the government and they were gathered together with the other mentally ill (gun owners) and were exterminated. Gun controls or bans were not necessary. Full registration (data base) of guns revealed the names of the gun owners and a swift diagnosis of mental illness accomplished the goal. Requiring a gun for protection was an indication that a person was against the government and thereby was mentally ill. The need for a gun was not necessary because the government protected the people. History books do not necessarily contain this information. We, the citizens of the U.S. A., do not understand that we are repeating that which has already happened. The outcome was tragic. Gertrude C. Dickinson Lake Panasoffkee SECO rank their co-op as one of the best SECO members recently got to voice their opinions on their Co-ops performance during 2012. A comprehensive customer satisfaction telephone survey was conducted in late November and December and the results have now been tabulated. The bottom line is that the members gave SECO a great report card. The survey, conducted annually on behalf of SECO by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, lets SECO officials know what is on their member/consumers minds and how well they think their utility is being run. Barry Bowman, SECO Director of Corporate Communications, said, A statistically valid sample of members in Marion, Lake, Citrus and Sumter counties were surveyed. Overall, members continue to think very highly of their cooperative with a mean overall satisfaction rating of 9.21 on a 10-point scale with the vast majority of members giving SECO ratings of 9 or 10. Bowman noted that the coop scored very well on having courteous and friendly employees, having accurate and understandable bills, helping to resolve problems, supporting the local community, being environmentally sensitive, minimizing longer outages and restoring power quickly after an outage, keeping members informed, and delivering good value for the money to name a few of the categories. The survey also contained a series of standardized questions that enable SECO to be compared to other utilities who seek to rate themselves on the nationally recognized American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI). SECO CEO Jim Duncan said, On this particular index a score like SECOs ACSI score of 89 is considered to be extremely high. Our index ranking for 2012 represents one of the highest in the industry and ranked six points higher than the average for the nations Touchstone Energy Cooperatives and much higher than the ranked investor-owned electric utilities in Florida and elsewhere. We appreciate the input of our members. Their thoughts help us stay on top of what is important to them. Their overwhelming outpouring of positive responses to the 2012 survey pushed SECOs customer satisfaction ranking to record heights. So, I want to express my personal thanks to our members for participating in the survey process and for their confidence in our operations. For our part, we will continue to keep the focus on providing our members with best customer service possible, Duncan concluded.

The horror of Newtown has already resulted in an outcry for more gun control. This is an understandable reaction, but to focus on it prevents us from doing the hard work of analyzing the fundamental, root cause of mass killings. While there is no question that we must take serious measures to prevent guns from falling into the hands of those who would misuse them, such as requiring background checks for all gun purchases, outlawing the instrumentality of the Newtown killings will not stop the massacres. The worst killing of elementary school children in the United States occurred in 1927 at Bath Consolidated School in Bath Township, Michigan. A mentally ill farmer used explosives to kill 38 children. In 1995, Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people in Oklahoma City, including 19 small children, using fertilizer, diesel fuel, and a rental truck. Mass killings are perpetrated by those who are mentally ill and who are willing to give up their own life to accomplish the task. They are planned. More gun control will not serve to stop them anymore than tighter controls on diesel fuel and rental trucks will. Now is not the time to focus the discussion on gun control; we must find and solve the root causes of mass killings. The starting point is the question, What causes someone to do this? The next question is, How can we recognize them before they act and intervene to prevent it? These are hard and complex questions but until we answer them, we are not going to reduce or stop horrific tragedies like Oklahoma City, Virginia Tech, and Newtown. Most of the mass killers are males who have at least a high school education. They are mentally ill to the point of suicide. Whether they were born with mental illness or it developed as they grew older, we must ask ourselves how we have failed as a society to recognize it and to intervene timely. Here are some areas where we can look for answers along with some suggestions on steps we can take to stop mass killings. Parenting Parenting has always been important. Now, with the instability in our mobile society, the importance of parenting has increased. The state of our economy often requires that both parents work. So who is raising the children? Television? The Internet? Their friends? When our economy is in such a state that working people with children have to get Food Stamps to feed their families, things are way out of balance. Our economy must be structured so that it gives working people a good living without both parents having to spend so much time at work that there is no time left to parent. Education System School is a wonderful place for most children. It is a very cruel place for the children who are left out of the social circles, activities, and friendships that most children enjoy. We have made great progress against bullying in schools. Now, it is time to train our teachers and school personnel to recognize the children who are not included in social activities, those who are left out, who are socially ostracized, and to come up with appropriate interventions to diagnose and treat these cases before they develop into personalities who become so antisocial that they harm themselves and others. Church Attendance Over the last two decades, church attendance has dropped dramatically in the United States. With very few exceptions, the Judeo-Christian based faiths have the same core beliefs. One of them is the Golden Rule Do Unto Others as You Would Have Them Do Unto You. It is well documented that the more examples and messages of good behavior that people are exposed to, the better their own behavior becomes. Mental Health America has the best trauma care in the world. We rank below some third world countries in most other areas of health care. The philosophy of fix it instead of prevent it has pervaded all disciplines of health care, including mental health. Ready access to health care for all Americans regardless of financial means, including mental health care, is long overdue. A word about cost if other first world countries (Taiwan, Canada, England) can find a way to pay for it, we can. The price we cannot pay is another Newtown massacre.

It was found below what used to be a paved area between the current church and Highway 301. Although the old safe is only 3 square feet, it took heavy equipment to even lift it.

course is free for those qualifying. The program was implemented in response to HR 218 Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004, and is approved by the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission. HR 218 is part of Homeland Securitys effort after the 9-11 attack on the United States. Sheriff Bill Farmer notes the program benefits the sheriffs office and residents as well, by putting additional eyes and ears out on the street to watch out for the community. The event includes checking of the weapons by course leader Lt. Gene Evans and several rounds of target practice that allow range instructors to observe how applicants handle their weapons and how well they do with aim. Each instructor is responsible for two applicants. The target practice begins with one round from the hip at the three-yard line, then low ready bringing the weapon up from a down angle. The third trial is from the holster at seven yards for a series of rounds. Theres a mandatory reload drill with 12 rounds fired from seven yards and finally, six rounds fired from 15 yards, according to Lt. Zeke Shaw. Many of the applicants come out in groups and most are from The Villages, though they come from around Sumter and surrounding counties as well. Farmer said they had one retired Secret Service agent that also qualifies through the local course. During his years of service, the agent worked security details for the Bush administration. Other officers came from surrounding counties people like Pete Levak, who is retired from Citrus County Sheriffs Office; Kim Kaminski and Joe McElligott from Blue Island, IL. Kaminski retired to Florida after 26 years with the force, while McElligott spent 35 years, retiring as a sergeant. Denny Reed had 20 years in Washington, D.C. his time including serving as a police officer and canine trainer.

PET OF THE WEEK It was a heartbreaker for the South Sumter High girls soccer team. Crystal River High beat South Sumter 3-2 in overtime Wednesday to win the semifinal game of the Class 2A-District 6 Tournament at Ocala Trinity Catholic. Crystal Rivers Aubrie Menster hit both the winning shot and the gametying shot. The game winner came with 3:30 left in the overtime. Crystal River lost 8-0 to Trinity Catholic in the district title game Friday night. It was a real nice shot from 30 yards out, said Kassy Boivin, the South Sumter coach said of the winning shot. The first South Sumter goal was scored Kylie Lovett on a free kick from 25 yards out. The second goal was by Erica Lovett. Daisy Hernandez hit a through ball and Erica played it against the goalkeeper. It was a great through ball by Daisy Hernandez, the coach said. That put us up 2-1. We were winning 2-1 until a minute 30 left in the game. They tied it 2-2. There was four minutes left in the first overtime when they scored. It was golden. When someone scores and it is over. It was emotional. We have never gone past that semifinal. We were really playing defensively trying to hold them. Their strong point is shooting. We were trying to not let them shoot. South Sumter was 9-6-2 overall for the season. It was the Raiders best record ever. Daisy Hernandez, a senior, was the leading scorer. Kylie Lovett was the second leading scorer. She is a junior. Kelsey Current was the starting goalkeeper. She is a sophomore. Amy Lopez, a senior captain center midfielder, is someone we are going to miss, said Boivin. She had a good season. The coach appreciated the work of her girls. We worked well together as a team, the coach said. We worked hard. We started conditioning in September. We were fit. We had a lot of fun this year. I am really proud of them. Im not disappointed. South Sumter soccer Crystal River nips South Sumter 3-2 to end year LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent We worked well together as a team, the coach said. We worked hard. We started conditioning in September. We were fit. We had a lot of fun this year. I am really proud of them.

St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Bushnell has a new pastor Rev. Waldemar Maciag. Hes been a priest since 1997 and comes most recently from St. Pauls Catholic Church in Leesburg where he served as parochial vicar for three years. Born in Czestochowa, Poland during the Communist rule, he developed a love for God instilled by his parents and grandparents. He always dreamed he would someday be a pilot or an artist until the day he answered Gods call. Ordained in 1997, he worked in Poland for three years followed by six years in Sweden. During his first four years in the United States, he was assigned to Holy Family in Orlando and affectionately called Fr. V by the children. He brings with him a wealth of God-given talents as an artist and musician. As he served in Sweden, he created an exhibition of the cross which was visited by people from all over the world. A compilation of photographs of this exhibition was a gift he personally presented to John Paul II. During his years serving in Europe, he developed a youth group program for his diocese, brought several Taize prayer services to his parish and created an Altar Server Formation program. When he arrived in Orlando, he was quickly embraced by his parishioners, many of whom supported him in his first exhibition in the United States. His work, Sacred Illuminations, graced the walls of the museum at the Basilica in Orlando for three months where thousands of Catholics and nonCatholics where able to experience Gods magnificence through his paintings. While at Holy Family, he also developed and altar server program that is still in use today. When he was transferred to St. Pauls in Leesburg, he quickly began his work with the community, helping them develop a deeper love of God and the faith. He worked with the school children, playing his guitar for them, teaching them about the Eucharistic Celebration and worked to help them develop their faith formation. Fr. V did his seminary work in Poland where he graduated with three masters degrees Liturgy, Theology and Philosophy. He responded to Bishop Noonan with his acceptance of his appointment in Bushnell, effective September 1, 2012. The church holds weekend masses at 4 p.m. on Saturday and at 10 a.m. on Sunday in English and at 12:15 p.m.on Sunday, in Spanish.

The SECO Board of Trustees has voted to continue SECOs scholarship program for 2013. In fact, the Board has authorized an increase in the scholarship amount taking it from $2,500 up to $3,000 per student in recognition of the ever increasing cost of higher education. Up to twelve deserving high school seniors from the cooperatives service territory will receive assistance to go on to a college or technical school following their graduation. SECOs scholarship program has proven very popular with SECO members and, over the years, has helped many deserving students attain higher learning when that might have been difficult otherwise. SECO Director of Corporate Communications Barry Bowman said, The selection of those students who will receive scholarships will be based on each individuals past and present activities in school and the community, financial need and scholastic record. All applicants will be evaluated by an independent panel of educators from around the SECO service territory. He noted that to qualify, graduates must reside in a home being served by SECO and be enrolled in an accredited college, university or vocational/technical school by the end of 2013. Applications are now available at area high school guidance offices and at any of SECOs customer service centers in Marion, Lake, Citrus, and Sumter counties. They must be returned to SECO no later than March 29, 2013. The SECO scholarship program reaffirms the Co-ops commitment to the future of our young people, and while the program has no impact on the cost of electricity, it is a significant benefit for those awardees struggling to fund their higher education, concluded Bowman. The Sumter County Retired Educators Association met Thursday, Jan.10, in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church, Bushnell. The meeting was called to order by Laura Shuyler, president. Alice Johnson gave the devotional on friends. Marilyn Barnes welcomed newest member, Evelyn Hill. The treasurers report was given by Horton Barnes, treasurer. Mary Simmons, chairman of the Volunteers Services committee, reminded all members that their Volunteer Hours reports are due in March. Our project for the spring months is to collect socks for veterans. All were urged to participate.Laura Shuyler introduced our speaker, Paul Provance. Paul works with the Guardian as Litem program for children. After a very interesting and informational presentation by Paul, everyone enjoyed a soup and sandwich lunch. The next meeting will be March 7, at 10:45 a.m. at the First Baptist Church, Bushnell. All retired educators are invited to attend. If you have questions, call Laura at 793-4555.

No need to kiss frogs for an unbelievable deal... not when you can get an entire year of the Sumter County Times for... JUST $25 This past weekend, we attended the Jack Russell Terrier Trials in Ocala, sponsered by the Sunshine State Jack Russell Terrier Club, the only Florida club affiliated with the Jack Russell Terrier Club of America. The club boosts approximately 150 members, not only in Florida, but throughout the country and Canada. They are a friendly and supportive group of people who love the spunky breed. They promote their breed of choice through education, training, competition and rescue. The sporting event features the very popular JRT races, go to ground, the thunder tunnel, confirmation, agility, and brush hunting. The races started at 8:30 am. The intense little Jacks were like firecrackers, racing down the track after the lure. Their excitement and intense drive to catch the lure is a thrilling and fun event for this highly active breed as well as for their humans. With the little spitfires rearing to go, their loyal owners were more than willing to accomodate their dogs. The course is a straight track, a minimum of 150 feet long to 225 feet long. All Jacks are muzzled for their own safety and the handlers safety. The races started out as flat racing and later hurdles were added. Let me tell you, watching those little dogs flat out fly over those hurdles is so exciting! These cool little dogs are naturally hot wired for action! This was the second year I attended the event, and I brought Hanna Banana, my JRT mix, and Moon Pie, my little shortie rough coat JRT. Every Jack in the crowd becomes wild with excitement as soon as the lure is pulled out on the cable, and my two dogs were no exception. When the racing Jacks are released to chase the lure, both terriers and humans are caught up in the excitement of the thrill of the race. JRTs of all ages, sizes, and varying coats and markings were attending the two day event. The JRT people were very friendly, helpful and supportive. Good sportsmanship was first and foremost, along with everyone including the dogs having a great time. After the races, Hanna Banana and Moon Pie got to experience brush hunting and the thunder tunnel. They even got the opportunity to chase a lure in a long round race track. Later we sat and watched dogs showing in confirmation. I am smitten by the breed. I love their fiesty personalities and their adorable expressions. Jack Russell Terriers are bred for hunting. They are bold, assertive, intelligent, and have boundless energy. They are not a dog for everyone, but for those who love and understand the fiesty breed, and are able to give the dog the outdoor activities and exercise it requires, they are a joy to be with. Pictured are racing Jack Russell Terriers jumping the hurdles and chasing the lure. JRTs, a fun and fiesty breed Linda Graves Sumter DART
