Destruction of the aging facility north of Webster began late last week as a large crane chewed into the roof of the building and its walls. It is really sad, said Barb Kane, fair coordinator. When you look at it, it brings back lots of memories. For decades, the building served a variety of fair-related functions everything from housing the annual fair scholarship pageants to providing the arena for showing off livestock during various fair competitions. And with a week-long fair starting early in March, the demolition work has to be completed soon. Things are moving pretty quickly, Kane said.

The crowd burst out in applause several times during the meeting, so show their support for desire to bring change to the area. The meeting was held in the recreation center building at the park.

P AGE 2S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 31, 2013 cause. The (Pre) Battle of the Best: The Sumter County Health Department team, which competed in last years cook-off, has devised its own competition to choose its chili entry. On Monday, Jan. 25, four health department employee teams offered up their chili recipes for scrutiny by health department director Dr. Sanford Zelnick. The winning recipe will be entered for competition in the Spice it Up for Hospice Chili Cook-off. A Family Affair: Loretta Spencer of Bushnell is co-coordinating another chili team with her aunt Penny Lancaster of Sumterville. Using Lancasters down-home, not so spicy recipe, Spencer, Lancaster and the rest of the participating family members are confident their wonderful chili will set us apart. Spencer is also hopeful that shell finally have Aunt Pennys recipe for herself by being a part of the team. Spencer says her family wanted to get involved with the hospice event because of the care and compassion she and her family received in recent years when loved ones were cared for by Cornerstone Hospice. Dead Serious Chili: Entering its third year in the competition, Purcell Funeral Home has branded its chili recipe as such; but Marketing Director Tony Kamus admits the team is still tweaking its formula. According to Kamus, a reliable source suggested slight modifications to the recipe the Purcell team entered the first year of the event. Kamus says that the chili recipe the team will present on February 2nd will be to die for. Armbands will be available for purchase for $5 at the Spice it Up for Hospice Chili Cook-off which runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and include a taste of each chili entry, a drink, a chili pepper beaded necklace, and a vote for your favorite chili. A chance drawing as well as live music will also be at the event. For additional information about the chili cook off, please contact Susan Bennett at 352-742-6807. About Cornerstone Hospice Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care, Inc., a not-for-profit, communitybased healthcare organization, has provided comfort and care to Central Florida residents experiencing life-limiting illnesses and their families. Last year, approximately 5,000 people in Lake, Sumter, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Hardee and Highlands counties benefited from Cornerstone programs and services either in their own homes, medical facilities, one of the organizations hospice houses or inpatient suites. Medicare and Medicaid are accepted as well as most private insurance. Many Cornerstone Hospice programs are made possible through the generous support of individuals and groups. For more information about Cornerstone Hospice services, volunteering or making a donation in support of Cornerstone families, call 888-728-6234 or visit www.cornerstonehospice.org. CHILI continued from Page 1 really fast. Kane said she has no concerns about the approaching fair season. A tent is going up on March 6 that will span the space left open by the demolished building. The annual county fair begins two days later, on March 8. The County Commission late last year decided that the Cow Palace is no longer functional and needed to be destroyed. The board decided not to proceed with plans to spend $839,038 to refurbish the aging building and condemned the facility because of its unsafe condition. Their decision was made following considerable discussion of the topic on a motion by County Commission Doug Gilpin who said the board shouldnt spend almost $1 million to bring the 60-year-old structure up to code. During their discussions of the facility, County Commissioner Doug Gilpin led the way to supporting a new facility. It makes no sense to make that kind of investment on a 60-year-old Quonset hut, Gilpin said at the time. Im proposing we build a new building. We have tourist development funds to do it with. While county staff supported plans to renovate the existing building, Gilpin said he didnt view that recommendation as a good one. Gilpin said that by agreeing to spend that amount of money to refurbish the building, the board will have only remedied the existing problems with the building and not provided a facility that would be advantageous to the county. Commissioners supported Gilpins statements condemning the facility and agreeing to build a new facility.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 31, 2013 Community shining up Panasoffkee O nce again, the residents of Lake Panasoffkee are coming together to make major changes in their community, forming a non-profit group called the Lake Panasoffkee Improvement Association. Theres always a core of people who work hard to bring positive change to the community the Friends of the Library who have hosted the annual Halloween in the Park for kids. The late s and early s group responsible for the park, recreation center and library remember, none of that was created by government it was done with donations, sweat and unity of the residents. Back then, they were interested in providing activities for children and families. Sometimes, the donation was a quarter for example, the Miss Panasoffkee title had nothing to do with swimsuit and evening dress, but rather, how much money you could collect in your little cup as you knocked on doors. But it was a pageant and young girls were signed up. Do you know that the building the recent association meeting was held in was built from donations? I bring this up again because I am always amazed by the collection of people in Lake Panasoffkee and Sumter County. I bring it up because I want to remind those of you who were around, and to inform those of you who dont know, about the dedication of those from the past and those who still live there to remember what the community has been and can be. In recent years, the area seems to have lost some of its luster. Crime and drugs have been on the increase and appearance on the decrease. But thats all changing and its all thanks to the residents. There are times when things may be moving in the wrong direction, or just not moving at all, but watch this. Its like a whirlwind give them a cause, a something to believe in and its amazing to see what happens. Monday night, an estimated 250 people took part in a community meeting. Its happening right now. The neighborhood project is networking, churches and organizations are coming together and residents have formed an organization that has done amazing things since October. Areas have been cleaned up, people in the community are working together to help neighbors. Theyre cleaning the business areas and even the private property of seniors who need help. Next on the agenda is a battle against crime and drug abuse. Its a great thing thats happening in Lake Panasoffkee even if the association ledgers showed no monetary balance and there wasnt a brand new house that was sold to help raise money, the people are coming together and ready to make Lake Panasoffkee shine again. A Civilian Culture of Warriors & Sumter Entertainment ParkInformation that details what sound vibration is and how sound vibration affects the human body and most specifically the mind is readily accessible. History has revealed that sound vibration has been used by many cultures to create warriors who will readily destroy humans without remorse during engagement in warfare. There is evidence that the U.S.A. military engages in some of those same techniques for the same purpose. However, if thoughtless community leaders decide to arrange supposed entertainment that involves bombarding the psyches of children and adults with extremely loud sound vibration, they could be creating time bombs waiting to go off. In addition, if they also bombard these same damaged psyches with visual scenes of violence presented as entertainment, they are adding fuel that could eventually explode into disastrous actions. Sumter County is proposing to use a 1,000-acre property for an Entertainment Park. They plan to include activities that will create continuous bombardment of extremely high decibel sound vibration with the possible addition of visual scenes of violent activity. The continuous exposure to both will negatively impact a number of those exposed. If those who are exposed continue to subject themselves to violent sound vibration, they will become adrenaline addicted warriors incapable of remorse. Dont blame the guns. This country (including Sumter County) is creating the conditions that could result in various shooting activities such as those that have been taking place. We now have produced a civilian culture of warriors who without compassion or remorse will destroy human beings. Then we blame the weapons that those civilian warriors use against us and promote various means to disarm the entire civilian population. Adrenaline drug addiction has become a dangerous hazard to our society. Gertrude C.

OPINIONS INVITED Sumter County Times O pinion Letter to the editor 11 more state colleges accepted affordability challenge Florida Gov. Rick Scott recently announced that 11 additional state colleges have accepted his challenge to work to develop quality bachelors degree programs costing students no more than $10,000. To date, all of the 23 institutions in the Florida College System that offer baccalaureate degrees have announced their support to Governor Scotts higher education affordability challenge. Representatives from Miami Dade College, Polk State College, Edison State College, Florida Gateway College. Florida State College of Jacksonville, Gulf Coast State College, Indian River State College, Lake-Sumter State College, Pensacola State College, St. Johns River State College and the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota have contacted the Florida Department of Education to accept the Governors challenge and identify which programs would be offered for $10,000 or less. Many of the programs would be in high-demand areas. LSSC shares the governors goal of providing access to affordable bachelors degrees for Floridians, said Dr. Charles Mojock, LSSC president. We look forward to working with the governor and our sister institutions to create such programs for the communities we serve. Lake-Sumter State College has always sought to provide Floridians access to affordable, high-quality higher education. According to the US Department of Education, LSSC is among the leaders in keeping the net price of attendance low at $2796 in 20102011, placing in the top 5 percent in the nation. In addition LSSCs Direct Connect to UCF Consortium makes degrees more affordable allowing students in our region to avoid relocation costs by staying close to home for their final two years of school. These are just a few examples of what LSSC is doing to ensure our community has quality education close to home, added Mojock. Brevard Community College, Broward College, Chipola College, College of Central Florida, Daytona State College, Northwest Florida State College, Palm Beach State College, Santa Fe College, Seminole State College, St. Petersburg College, South Florida State College and Valencia College previously accepted the Governors $10,000 degree challenge. Governor Scott said, Higher education is key to helping our students succeed in the 21st century economy and to grow jobs in Florida. It is important our students can get an affordable education, and our state colleges have stepped up to the challenge to find innovative ways to provide a quality education at a great value. Our goal should be that students do not have to go into debt in order to obtain a degree and todays announcement of nearly all of our state colleges meeting this challenge puts us closer to achieving that goal for our students and families. Governor Scott first issued his $10k degree challenge last November and made todays announcement at Miami Dade Colleges North Campus while touring the college and learning about the $10k degrees the institution plans to offer. Commissioner of Education Tony Bennett said, The Florida College System is a leader in ensuring access for higher education. The colleges in the system have always focused on affordability. This shows a continued commitment, especially in the workforce area where we offer bachelor degrees. I commend all of the colleges in the Florida College System for their commitment to access and affordability and look forward to working with our colleges. Chancellor of the Florida College System Randy Hanna said College affordability is a key ingredient in providing opportunities for Floridians to move into their careers. All of these programs will be designed for bachelor degrees in the area of workforce development. Many of our colleges are targeting high demand programs where there can be a significant impact in the local community. We look forward to working with the Governor and the Legislature and business and industry as we develop these programs. Miami Dade College President Dr. Eduardo J. Padron said Miami Dade College applauds Governor Scott for his leadership in advocating for greater access and affordability to higher education. We at MDC have long been committed to these goals and are pleased to unveil a Pathway to the Baccalaureate initiative that will provide interested students the opportunity to complete one of the most affordable, high-quality workforce oriented bachelors degrees in the nation. St. Johns River State College President Joe Pickens, J.D. said, St. Johns River State College is pleased to accept Governor Scotts $10,000 Degree Challenge and pledges to bring this opportunity to the residents of its district in the fall of 2014. We are committed to promoting the economic strengths of our communities by providing a variety of affordable, educational pathways that will lead to employment opportunities. This $10K degree program will complement the associate degree, bachelors degree and certificate programs currently available to students at SJR State. Gulf Coast State College President Dr. Jim Kerley said, We focus on quality and value, and we believe our students receive both. We and the Board of Trustees are dedicated to offer the lowest tuition, currently the lowest in the state, and we are committed to move forward with a $10,000 bachelors degree. We will continue to offer workforce bachelor degrees that lead to jobs and are adamant about the affordability of higher education so students can truly start here and go anywhere. Thats our vision and our promise to the community. State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota President Dr. Carol F. Probstfeld said, SCF has accepted Gov. Scotts $10,000 baccalaureate degree challenge as a new opportunity to be even more inventive as we work with our partners to identify programs, existing and new, that offer the most immediate application to todays workforce needs. I have assigned a task force to work with all due speed on ideas and bring forward proposals for developing a feasible model that can be implemented in a reasonable and timely manner. Polk State College President Eileen Holden said, We are very proud of Polk States tradition of access and affordability, and we are proud and grateful that the Governor is spotlighting examples of innovation at Polk and throughout the Florida College System.

FROM THE GROUND UP Horticultural experience growing entrepreneurs Mariena Molina, Anthony Warren and Isaiah Molina (clockwise from top left) are shown examining the parts of a rose with horticulture agent with Camille McAvoy (at right). She cut the rose in half and removed the petals to insure a clear view of the inside. Part of the workshop included repotting two plants a spider plant and a ghost plant. Katrina Molina is shown here with her spider plant. S umter County Horticulture agent Cami McAvoy hosted a horticulture workshop for youth, earlier this month. We went through basic plant science, said McAvoy, explaining that she showed the children and their families parts of the seeds and plants, how they propagate themselves either vegetative or through flowers. The kids were also taught how to make cuttings and start their own plant. The lessons included the lifecycles of plants with plenty of hands-on experience. Through the workshop, kids were taught how to make cuttings and start their own plant. They also got to start their own tray of bedding plants that included marigolds, purple coneflowers, dahlias, zinnias and blanket flowers, learning the difference between perennials and annuals, according to McAvoy. They planted in a 72-cell tray, she said, adding that can be separated into six packs that can then be sold. The kids have several options that will continue their education and experience from the workshop theyll be able to add their plants to the Master Gardeners Horticulture Show set for March and they can take the bedding plants they start and sell them at the Master Gardeners Vendor Sale on March 16 at the Wildwood Community Center. The sale is open to the public and allows growers an outlet to market their goods. McAvoy plans to visit the kids and their projects in February, to see how the plants are growing and will also be offering additional classes and events in the future. The horticultural experience offers a variety of benefits to participants including teaching life and entrepreneurial skills and teaching responsibility as the children take care of their plants. For 4-H members, its also an opportunity to do a record book. Its all about where they want to take it, she said. McAvoy serves as agent through the Sumter County Extension Office.

B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer Sumter teens participate in healthy lifestyles summit Florida 4-H and UnitedHealthcare hosted nearly 200 youth and adult leaders last weekend as part of a statewide teen health summit designed to promote healthy lifestyles through better food choices, fitness and other hands-on learning activities. The Teen Healthy Lifestyles Summit took place at 4-H Camp Ocala and included group activities, educational sessions and interactive discussions aimed at helping fight the nations obesity epidemic through innovative thinking, learning and lifestyle decisionmaking. 4-H youth from 31counties and three military bases participated in the weekend events, which focused on sharing the importance of healthy living and enabling youth to adopt healthy habits, and inspiring youth to learn healthy behaviors and to share them with their families and their communities. The summit is part of the ongoing partnership between National 4-H Council and UnitedHealthcare called Eat4Health. Eat4-Health is activating thousands of 4-H youth ambassadors from around the country to make healthy choices for themselves and encourage friends, families and people in their communities to make positive changes through training, creative programs and educational events. It currently spans 10 states, including Florida, which received a $30,000 grant through the University of Florida Extension Service, which provides 4-H programs to all counties in the state. This summit is an excellent opportunity to bring together youth to really engage them in addressing the obesity epidemic through the eyes and innovative thinking that young people bring to the discussion, said Dr. Keith Diem, Florida 4H Program Leader. They know best about their lifestyles and needs, so engaging them in solutions is a critical element to addressing obesity among youth and their families. Eat4-Health demonstrates how our youth are leading the way to help solve the nations obesity problem, said Kathleen Crampton, president of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Florida. UnitedHealthcare shares in the excitement of these youth and Florida 4-H in harnessing the energy from this summit to promote healthy living. Several health experts and community leaders participated in the summit, including Karla Shelnut, Ph.D., Foods and Nutrition Assistant Professor at the University of Florida and a state leader in advancing obesity prevention among children, adolescents and young adults. UnitedHealthcare representatives, along with 4-H youth and adult leaders, helped facilitate learning discussions, nutrition training, cooking demonstrations and physical activities. Floridas Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam praised the summit and its goals saying, Not only has 4-H continued to make our youth better citizens over the years, the organization has successfully challenged itself to meet the changing needs of the communities it serves. This is an important partnership and I applaud the work being done by Florida 4-H members and its industry partners to help tackle obesity. Through Eat4-Health, Florida 4-H has developed an action plan to provide innovative, hands-on learning approaches that target specific community needs in the state. Many of these activities are supporting healthy-living programs led by 4-H that encourage youth and community participation through events such as health fairs, cooking demonstrations, after-school programs, workshops and educational forums, among others. UnitedHealthcare employees are teaming up with 4-H at many of these events, assisting with planning and executing projects that lead to positive, sustainable change at the individual and community levels. As part of Eat4-Health, each participating state is organizing a youth summit to train 4-H youth ambassadors to implement the programs and help reach the goals in their state. The summits are designed to provide a venue where participants learn more about nutrition, health and fitness, obtain information on promoting health within their communities, and gain new tools for participating in educational trainings and community activities. Florida is the first state to hold its summit as part of the UnitedHealthcare grant. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), obesity among children and adolescents has almost tripled since 1980, with nearly one in every three children being overweight or obese. Children from low-income and low-education households are three-times more likely to be obese. Americas Health Rankings, an annual comprehensive assessment of the nations health on a state-by-state basis, indicates that obesity is a leading risk factor for diabetes, heart disease and many cancers. The estimated economic cost of obesity is $270 billion per year.

Coming February 9 and 10 is the Florida Donkey and Mule Expo at the fair grounds in Tampa. See and learn all about those wonderful long eared equines, and why their owners are so smitten with them. Luigi, our Sicilian donkey that wears a prosthetic leg, has been invited to attend. He will demonstrate that animals with leg deformities, injuries, or amputations can now be helped with braces and prosthetic devices. Meet both donkeys and mules ranging in size from miniatures being 36 inches or less to the mammoth sizes of 54 and taller. Donkeys and mules come in all sizes and various colors. They have lots of personality, and can be a bit mischievous. They can do anything a horse of the same size can do. They ride, drive in harness, barrel race, and are champion jumpers. They are social animals that enjoy and thrive with one or more companions, so they should always have at least one pasture buddy. Donkeys are known for their big ears, comical dispositions, whiskbroom tails, and very loud brays. Because they evolved in the desert, they are able to adapt and survive in harsh environments. They can withstand heat and will grow a thick woolly coat in cold weather for insulation. They are fuel efficient, strong and hardy animals. Gentle and calm by nature, they are intelligent enough to be cautious or refuse to do something if they sense danger. Mules are the result of breeding a horse with a donkey. They are a combination of the donkeys good sense, surefootedness, endurance, and environmental tolerance combined with the horses size, strength, speed, and courage. Although mules are sterile, it is highly recommended to have male mules gelded. A mules appearance is a mixture of both horse and donkey, with ears that are longer than a horse but not as long as a donkey, and eyes more almond shaped. They make an amusing sound that is a mix between a bray and a whinny. As a working animal, mules are generally preferred to a horse for their tolerance to climate extremes, they require less food and water, and have hooves that have a natural resistance to problems that will typically plague a horse. The mule and donkeys affectionate and comical personality, along with their intelligence and willingness to work with us, give them a special place in the hearts of their owners. Croom resident, Frank Marques who has 7 donkeys says, They make great pets, they are friendly, and each has their own individual personality. Bushnell resident Sheri Evans has 7 donkeys.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ANUARY 31, 2013, P AGE 17 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABE! George Herman Ruth, Jr. was born in February 1895 in Baltimore, Maryland. By the time he was 5, Ruth was always getting in trouble in his neighborhood, so his parents sent him to St. Marys Industrial School. There, Brother Matthias introduced Ruth to baseball. By 1914, Ruth had become a baseball star in Baltimore. That was the year the Baltimore Orioles, a minor league team, signed him to a contract. However, because Ruth was only 19, the owner had to become his guardian, so other players called Ruth the baby, which later became Babe. During that season, Ruth was sold to the Boston Red Sox. From there he was sold to the New York Yankees in 1920. He was a big hit in New York; and for the first time in baseball history, more than 1 million fans saw the Yankees play that year. By the time he was 26, Ruth had already hit more home runs than anyone in baseball history. Ruth played his last game in Pittsburgh in May 1935. That afternoon, he hit three home runs, giving him a total of 714. When the Baseball Hall of Fame opened in 1939, Ruth was one of the first five members to be selected. Building Building Young Men Young Men Dedicated to helping boys become better people, several men took part in developing the Boy Scouts of America. Robert Baden-Powell, Ernest Thompson Seton, Daniel Carter Beard, William Boyce and James West established the Boy Scouts of America in February 1910. Today, the Boy Scouts of America is made up of several groups. Tiger Cubs BSA: This school-year program is for 7-year-old boys and adult mentors. Boys learn about leadership, community and family. Cub Scouting: For 8, 9 and 10 year-old boys, this is a familyand home-centered program. Boy Scouting: Boys, 11 to 17, work to achieve the goals of scouting with outdoor programs and adult counseling. Varsity Scouting: Young men, 14 to 17, work through programs like adventure, service and personal development. Venturing: This new program is for young men, 14 to 20. National Eagle Scout Association: Young men who have received the Eagle Scout rank are part of this program to help other young men. At last count, more than 90 million people had been a boy scout at sometime during their lives. For more information on the Boy Scouts of America, visit the Web site at http://www.bsa.scouting.org/.

The Wildwood High boys basketball head coach watched as his Wildcats (109) went scoreless in the third period and lost to local archrival South Sumter High (7-11) 53-29 in a non-district game Friday night at the Raiders gym. South Sumter was even missing one of its best scorers. Brandon Curtis was in North Carolina on a college visit. In the decisive third period, Cameron Bannister came off the bench to hit six points. Bo Farmer also added six of his 10 points as the Raiders destroyed their Sumter County rivals 22-0. The game was a low-scoring but even contest in the first half. Both teams were tied at 7-7 after one quarter. Wildwoods Rob Peterkin had four points for the Wildcats. Reace Kinley had three for the Raiders. The Wildcats outpointed their foes 10-9 in the second quarter. Chuck Brown, who would lead the Wildcats with seven points, scored four in the period and Wildwood led 17-16 at the half. Then, the Wildcats shooting died while the Raiders took off. Wildwood then outscored the Raiders 12-11 in the fourth quarter when the subs flooded the floor. Kinley led all scorers with 13 points. Wildwood hurt itself with horrible shooting and 18 turnovers. They also hit five of 10 free throws. This game may give Moreland nightmares. I have no idea, said Moreland. I think we were 2-for-21 from the free throw line. We didnt play very well. I thought the first half was as bad as it was going to get for us. Third quarter, we didnt score a point. Im in shock. We have been playing a lot better than that. We are going to have to shake this one off. We have to bounce back. The Raiders coach had a Cheshire cat look that said his team got away with one. We are missing Brandon Curtis and Devyn Jessmer, said Raiders coach A.J. Bryant. I think everybody else stepped up in their place. Bannister, one of our smallest guards, stepped up in the post. He gave us a spark. He played great defense. I think Wildwood expected us to play zone the whole game. We made changes offensively. Defensively, we wanted to make sure we found every shooter. We are fortunate to have our first basketball shutout. We have never had one of those before. Raiders shut out Wildcats L ARRYB UGG Times Correspondent

Destruction of the aging facility north of Webster began late last week as a large crane chewed into the roof of the building and its walls. It is really sad, said Barb Kane, fair coordinator. When you look at it, it brings back lots of memories. For decades, the building served a variety of fair-related functions everything from housing the annual fair scholarship pageants to providing the arena for showing off livestock during various fair competitions. And with a week-long fair starting early in March, the demolition work has to be completed soon. Things are moving pretty quickly, Kane said. Theyre doing this BOBREICHMAN Editor See COW,Page 2 Demolition of the historic cow palace began last weekend with the destruction of the roof. The building will be replaced by a new facility.

The crowd burst out in applause several times during the meeting, so show their support for desire to bring change to the area. The meeting was held in the recreation center building at the park.

PAGE2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY31, 2013 cause. The (Pre) Battle of the Best: The Sumter County Health Department team, which competed in last years cook-off, has devised its own competition to choose its chili entry. On Monday, Jan. 25, four health department employee teams offered up their chili recipes for scrutiny by health department director Dr. Sanford Zelnick. The winning recipe will be entered for competition in the Spice it Up for Hospice Chili Cook-off. A Family Affair: Loretta Spencer of Bushnell is co-coordinating another chili team with her aunt Penny Lancaster of Sumterville. Using Lancasters down-home, not so spicy recipe, Spencer, Lancaster and the rest of the participating family members are confident their wonderful chili will set us apart. Spencer is also hopeful that shell finally have Aunt Pennys recipe for herself by being a part of the team. Spencer says her family wanted to get involved with the hospice event because of the care and compassion she and her family received in recent years when loved ones were cared for by Cornerstone Hospice. Dead Serious Chili: Entering its third year in the competition, Purcell Funeral Home has branded its chili recipe as such; but Marketing Director Tony Kamus admits the team is still tweaking its formula. According to Kamus, a reliable source suggested slight modifications to the recipe the Purcell team entered the first year of the event. Kamus says that the chili recipe the team will present on February 2nd will be to die for. Armbands will be available for purchase for $5 at the Spice it Up for Hospice Chili Cook-off which runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and include a taste of each chili entry, a drink, a chili pepper beaded necklace, and a vote for your favorite chili. A chance drawing as well as live music will also be at the event. For additional information about the chili cook off, please contact Susan Bennett at 352-742-6807. About Cornerstone Hospice Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care, Inc., a not-for-profit, communitybased healthcare organization, has provided comfort and care to Central Florida residents experiencing life-limiting illnesses and their families. Last year, approximately 5,000 people in Lake, Sumter, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Hardee and Highlands counties benefited from Cornerstone programs and services either in their own homes, medical facilities, one of the organizations hospice houses or inpatient suites. Medicare and Medicaid are accepted as well as most private insurance. Many Cornerstone Hospice programs are made possible through the generous support of individuals and groups.

CHILI continued from Page 1 really fast. Kane said she has no concerns about the approaching fair season. A tent is going up on March 6 that will span the space left open by the demolished building. The annual county fair begins two days later, on March 8. The County Commission late last year decided that the Cow Palace is no longer functional and needed to be destroyed. The board decided not to proceed with plans to spend $839,038 to refurbish the aging building and condemned the facility because of its unsafe condition. Their decision was made following considerable discussion of the topic on a motion by County Commission Doug Gilpin who said the board shouldnt spend almost $1 million to bring the 60-year-old structure up to code. During their discussions of the facility, County Commissioner Doug Gilpin led the way to supporting a new facility. It makes no sense to make that kind of investment on a 60-year-old Quonset hut, Gilpin said at the time. Im proposing we build a new building. We have tourist development funds to do it with. While county staff supported plans to renovate the existing building, Gilpin said he didnt view that recommendation as a good one. Gilpin said that by agreeing to spend that amount of money to refurbish the building, the board will have only remedied the existing problems with the building and not provided a facility that would be advantageous to the county. Commissioners supported Gilpins statements condemning the facility and agreeing to build a new facility.

PAGE4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY31, 2013 Community shining up Panasoffkee Once again, the residents of Lake Panasoffkee are coming together to make major changes in their community, forming a non-profit group called the Lake Panasoffkee Improvement Association. Theres always a core of people who work hard to bring positive change to the community the Friends of the Library who have hosted the annual Halloween in the Park for kids. The late s and early s group responsible for the park, recreation center and library remember, none of that was created by government it was done with donations, sweat and unity of the residents. Back then, they were interested in providing activities for children and families. Sometimes, the donation was a quarter for example, the Miss Panasoffkee title had nothing to do with swimsuit and evening dress, but rather, how much money you could collect in your little cup as you knocked on doors. But it was a pageant and young girls were signed up. Do you know that the building the recent association meeting was held in was built from donations? I bring this up again because I am always amazed by the collection of people in Lake Panasoffkee and Sumter County. I bring it up because I want to remind those of you who were around, and to inform those of you who dont know, about the dedication of those from the past and those who still live there to remember what the community has been and can be. In recent years, the area seems to have lost some of its luster. Crime and drugs have been on the increase and appearance on the decrease. But thats all changing and its all thanks to the residents. There are times when things may be moving in the wrong direction, or just not moving at all, but watch this. Its like a whirlwind give them a cause, a something to believe in and its amazing to see what happens. Monday night, an estimated 250 people took part in a community meeting. Its happening right now. The neighborhood project is networking, churches and organizations are coming together and residents have formed an organization that has done amazing things since October. Areas have been cleaned up, people in the community are working together to help neighbors. Theyre cleaning the business areas and even the private property of seniors who need help. Next on the agenda is a battle against crime and drug abuse. Its a great thing thats happening in Lake Panasoffkee even if the association ledgers showed no monetary balance and there wasnt a brand new house that was sold to help raise money, the people are coming together and ready to make Lake Panasoffkee shine again. A Civilian Culture of Warriors & Sumter Entertainment ParkInformation that details what sound vibration is and how sound vibration affects the human body and most specifically the mind is readily accessible. History has revealed that sound vibration has been used by many cultures to create warriors who will readily destroy humans without remorse during engagement in warfare. There is evidence that the U.S.A. military engages in some of those same techniques for the same purpose. However, if thoughtless community leaders decide to arrange supposed entertainment that involves bombarding the psyches of children and adults with extremely loud sound vibration, they could be creating time bombs waiting to go off. In addition, if they also bombard these same damaged psyches with visual scenes of violence presented as entertainment, they are adding fuel that could eventually explode into disastrous actions. Sumter County is proposing to use a 1,000-acre property for an Entertainment Park. They plan to include activities that will create continuous bombardment of extremely high decibel sound vibration with the possible addition of visual scenes of violent activity. The continuous exposure to both will negatively impact a number of those exposed. If those who are exposed continue to subject themselves to violent sound vibration, they will become adrenaline addicted warriors incapable of remorse. Dont blame the guns. This country (including Sumter County) is creating the conditions that could result in various shooting activities such as those that have been taking place. We now have produced a civilian culture of warriors who without compassion or remorse will destroy human beings. Then we blame the weapons that those civilian warriors use against us and promote various means to disarm the entire civilian population. Adrenaline drug addiction has become a dangerous hazard to our society. Gertrude C.

Rick Scott recently announced that 11 additional state colleges have accepted his challenge to work to develop quality bachelors degree programs costing students no more than $10,000. To date, all of the 23 institutions in the Florida College System that offer baccalaureate degrees have announced their support to Governor Scotts higher education affordability challenge. Representatives from Miami Dade College, Polk State College, Edison State College, Florida Gateway College. Florida State College of Jacksonville, Gulf Coast State College, Indian River State College, Lake-Sumter State College, Pensacola State College, St. Johns River State College and the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota have contacted the Florida Department of Education to accept the Governors challenge and identify which programs would be offered for $10,000 or less. Many of the programs would be in high-demand areas. LSSC shares the governors goal of providing access to affordable bachelors degrees for Floridians, said Dr. Charles Mojock, LSSC president. We look forward to working with the governor and our sister institutions to create such programs for the communities we serve. Lake-Sumter State College has always sought to provide Floridians access to affordable, high-quality higher education. According to the US Department of Education, LSSC is among the leaders in keeping the net price of attendance low at $2796 in 20102011, placing in the top 5 percent in the nation. In addition LSSCs Direct Connect to UCF Consortium makes degrees more affordable allowing students in our region to avoid relocation costs by staying close to home for their final two years of school. These are just a few examples of what LSSC is doing to ensure our community has quality education close to home, added Mojock. Brevard Community College, Broward College, Chipola College, College of Central Florida, Daytona State College, Northwest Florida State College, Palm Beach State College, Santa Fe College, Seminole State College, St. Petersburg College, South Florida State College and Valencia College previously accepted the Governors $10,000 degree challenge. Governor Scott said, Higher education is key to helping our students succeed in the 21st century economy and to grow jobs in Florida. It is important our students can get an affordable education, and our state colleges have stepped up to the challenge to find innovative ways to provide a quality education at a great value. Our goal should be that students do not have to go into debt in order to obtain a degree and todays announcement of nearly all of our state colleges meeting this challenge puts us closer to achieving that goal for our students and families. Governor Scott first issued his $10k degree challenge last November and made todays announcement at Miami Dade Colleges North Campus while touring the college and learning about the $10k degrees the institution plans to offer. Commissioner of Education Tony Bennett said, The Florida College System is a leader in ensuring access for higher education. The colleges in the system have always focused on affordability. This shows a continued commitment, especially in the workforce area where we offer bachelor degrees. I commend all of the colleges in the Florida College System for their commitment to access and affordability and look forward to working with our colleges. Chancellor of the Florida College System Randy Hanna said College affordability is a key ingredient in providing opportunities for Floridians to move into their careers. All of these programs will be designed for bachelor degrees in the area of workforce development. Many of our colleges are targeting high demand programs where there can be a significant impact in the local community. We look forward to working with the Governor and the Legislature and business and industry as we develop these programs. Miami Dade College President Dr. Eduardo J. Padron said Miami Dade College applauds Governor Scott for his leadership in advocating for greater access and affordability to higher education. We at MDC have long been committed to these goals and are pleased to unveil a Pathway to the Baccalaureate initiative that will provide interested students the opportunity to complete one of the most affordable, high-quality workforce oriented bachelors degrees in the nation. St. Johns River State College President Joe Pickens, J.D. said, St. Johns River State College is pleased to accept Governor Scotts $10,000 Degree Challenge and pledges to bring this opportunity to the residents of its district in the fall of 2014. We are committed to promoting the economic strengths of our communities by providing a variety of affordable, educational pathways that will lead to employment opportunities. This $10K degree program will complement the associate degree, bachelors degree and certificate programs currently available to students at SJR State. Gulf Coast State College President Dr. Jim Kerley said, We focus on quality and value, and we believe our students receive both. We and the Board of Trustees are dedicated to offer the lowest tuition, currently the lowest in the state, and we are committed to move forward with a $10,000 bachelors degree. We will continue to offer workforce bachelor degrees that lead to jobs and are adamant about the affordability of higher education so students can truly start here and go anywhere. Thats our vision and our promise to the community. State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota President Dr. Carol F. Probstfeld said, SCF has accepted Gov. Scotts $10,000 baccalaureate degree challenge as a new opportunity to be even more inventive as we work with our partners to identify programs, existing and new, that offer the most immediate application to todays workforce needs. I have assigned a task force to work with all due speed on ideas and bring forward proposals for developing a feasible model that can be implemented in a reasonable and timely manner. Polk State College President Eileen Holden said, We are very proud of Polk States tradition of access and affordability, and we are proud and grateful that the Governor is spotlighting examples of innovation at Polk and throughout the Florida College System.

She needed the larger seeds in order for the kids to get a clear glimpse inside. This group of kids attended through the Muckateers, a 4-H group led by Rose Marie Martin, but the workshop was open to the public. FROM THE GROUND UP Horticultural experience growing entrepreneurs Mariena Molina, Anthony Warren and Isaiah Molina (clockwise from top left) are shown examining the parts of a rose with horticulture agent with Camille McAvoy (at right). She cut the rose in half and removed the petals to insure a clear view of the inside. Part of the workshop included repotting two plants a spider plant and a ghost plant. Katrina Molina is shown here with her spider plant. Sumter County Horticulture agent Cami McAvoy hosted a horticulture workshop for youth, earlier this month. We went through basic plant science, said McAvoy, explaining that she showed the children and their families parts of the seeds and plants, how they propagate themselves either vegetative or through flowers. The kids were also taught how to make cuttings and start their own plant. The lessons included the lifecycles of plants with plenty of hands-on experience. Through the workshop, kids were taught how to make cuttings and start their own plant. They also got to start their own tray of bedding plants that included marigolds, purple coneflowers, dahlias, zinnias and blanket flowers, learning the difference between perennials and annuals, according to McAvoy. They planted in a 72-cell tray, she said, adding that can be separated into six packs that can then be sold. The kids have several options that will continue their education and experience from the workshop theyll be able to add their plants to the Master Gardeners Horticulture Show set for March and they can take the bedding plants they start and sell them at the Master Gardeners Vendor Sale on March 16 at the Wildwood Community Center. The sale is open to the public and allows growers an outlet to market their goods. McAvoy plans to visit the kids and their projects in February, to see how the plants are growing and will also be offering additional classes and events in the future. The horticultural experience offers a variety of benefits to participants including teaching life and entrepreneurial skills and teaching responsibility as the children take care of their plants. For 4-H members, its also an opportunity to do a record book. Its all about where they want to take it, she said. McAvoy serves as agent through the Sumter County Extension Office. For more information about other programs they offer, call 352-793-2728. BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Sumter teens participate in healthy lifestyles summit Florida 4-H and UnitedHealthcare hosted nearly 200 youth and adult leaders last weekend as part of a statewide teen health summit designed to promote healthy lifestyles through better food choices, fitness and other hands-on learning activities. The Teen Healthy Lifestyles Summit took place at 4-H Camp Ocala and included group activities, educational sessions and interactive discussions aimed at helping fight the nations obesity epidemic through innovative thinking, learning and lifestyle decisionmaking. 4-H youth from 31counties and three military bases participated in the weekend events, which focused on sharing the importance of healthy living and enabling youth to adopt healthy habits, and inspiring youth to learn healthy behaviors and to share them with their families and their communities. The summit is part of the ongoing partnership between National 4-H Council and UnitedHealthcare called Eat4Health. Eat4-Health is activating thousands of 4-H youth ambassadors from around the country to make healthy choices for themselves and encourage friends, families and people in their communities to make positive changes through training, creative programs and educational events. It currently spans 10 states, including Florida, which received a $30,000 grant through the University of Florida Extension Service, which provides 4-H programs to all counties in the state. This summit is an excellent opportunity to bring together youth to really engage them in addressing the obesity epidemic through the eyes and innovative thinking that young people bring to the discussion, said Dr. Keith Diem, Florida 4H Program Leader. They know best about their lifestyles and needs, so engaging them in solutions is a critical element to addressing obesity among youth and their families. Eat4-Health demonstrates how our youth are leading the way to help solve the nations obesity problem, said Kathleen Crampton, president of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Florida. UnitedHealthcare shares in the excitement of these youth and Florida 4-H in harnessing the energy from this summit to promote healthy living. Several health experts and community leaders participated in the summit, including Karla Shelnut, Ph.D., Foods and Nutrition Assistant Professor at the University of Florida and a state leader in advancing obesity prevention among children, adolescents and young adults. UnitedHealthcare representatives, along with 4-H youth and adult leaders, helped facilitate learning discussions, nutrition training, cooking demonstrations and physical activities. Floridas Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam praised the summit and its goals saying, Not only has 4-H continued to make our youth better citizens over the years, the organization has successfully challenged itself to meet the changing needs of the communities it serves. This is an important partnership and I applaud the work being done by Florida 4-H members and its industry partners to help tackle obesity. Through Eat4-Health, Florida 4-H has developed an action plan to provide innovative, hands-on learning approaches that target specific community needs in the state. Many of these activities are supporting healthy-living programs led by 4-H that encourage youth and community participation through events such as health fairs, cooking demonstrations, after-school programs, workshops and educational forums, among others. UnitedHealthcare employees are teaming up with 4-H at many of these events, assisting with planning and executing projects that lead to positive, sustainable change at the individual and community levels. As part of Eat4-Health, each participating state is organizing a youth summit to train 4-H youth ambassadors to implement the programs and help reach the goals in their state. The summits are designed to provide a venue where participants learn more about nutrition, health and fitness, obtain information on promoting health within their communities, and gain new tools for participating in educational trainings and community activities. Florida is the first state to hold its summit as part of the UnitedHealthcare grant. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), obesity among children and adolescents has almost tripled since 1980, with nearly one in every three children being overweight or obese. Children from low-income and low-education households are three-times more likely to be obese. Americas Health Rankings, an annual comprehensive assessment of the nations health on a state-by-state basis, indicates that obesity is a leading risk factor for diabetes, heart disease and many cancers. The estimated economic cost of obesity is $270 billion per year.

Luigi, our Sicilian donkey that wears a prosthetic leg, has been invited to attend. He will demonstrate that animals with leg deformities, injuries, or amputations can now be helped with braces and prosthetic devices. Meet both donkeys and mules ranging in size from miniatures being 36 inches or less to the mammoth sizes of 54 and taller. Donkeys and mules come in all sizes and various colors. They have lots of personality, and can be a bit mischievous. They can do anything a horse of the same size can do. They ride, drive in harness, barrel race, and are champion jumpers. They are social animals that enjoy and thrive with one or more companions, so they should always have at least one pasture buddy. Donkeys are known for their big ears, comical dispositions, whiskbroom tails, and very loud brays. Because they evolved in the desert, they are able to adapt and survive in harsh environments. They can withstand heat and will grow a thick woolly coat in cold weather for insulation. They are fuel efficient, strong and hardy animals. Gentle and calm by nature, they are intelligent enough to be cautious or refuse to do something if they sense danger. Mules are the result of breeding a horse with a donkey. They are a combination of the donkeys good sense, surefootedness, endurance, and environmental tolerance combined with the horses size, strength, speed, and courage. Although mules are sterile, it is highly recommended to have male mules gelded. A mules appearance is a mixture of both horse and donkey, with ears that are longer than a horse but not as long as a donkey, and eyes more almond shaped. They make an amusing sound that is a mix between a bray and a whinny. As a working animal, mules are generally preferred to a horse for their tolerance to climate extremes, they require less food and water, and have hooves that have a natural resistance to problems that will typically plague a horse. The mule and donkeys affectionate and comical personality, along with their intelligence and willingness to work with us, give them a special place in the hearts of their owners. Croom resident, Frank Marques who has 7 donkeys says, They make great pets, they are friendly, and each has their own individual personality. Bushnell resident Sheri Evans has 7 donkeys. She comments, They are such friendly creatures, kind of like big furry dogs. I just love them! Linda Graves Sumter DART

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JANUARY31, 2013, PAGE17 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABE!George Herman Ruth, Jr. was born in February 1895 in Baltimore, Maryland. By the time he was 5, Ruth was always getting in trouble in his neighborhood, so his parents sent him to St. Marys Industrial School. There, Brother Matthias introduced Ruth to baseball. By 1914, Ruth had become a baseball star in Baltimore. That was the year the Baltimore Orioles, a minor league team, signed him to a contract. However, because Ruth was only 19, the owner had to become his guardian, so other players called Ruth the baby, which later became Babe. During that season, Ruth was sold to the Boston Red Sox. From there he was sold to the New York Yankees in 1920. He was a big hit in New York; and for the first time in baseball history, more than 1 million fans saw the Yankees play that year. By the time he was 26, Ruth had already hit more home runs than anyone in baseball history. Ruth played his last game in Pittsburgh in May 1935. That afternoon, he hit three home runs, giving him a total of 714. When the Baseball Hall of Fame opened in 1939, Ruth was one of the first five members to be selected. Building Building Young Men Young Men Dedicated to helping boys become better people, several men took part in developing the Boy Scouts of America. Robert Baden-Powell, Ernest Thompson Seton, Daniel Carter Beard, William Boyce and James West established the Boy Scouts of America in February 1910.

Cub Scouting: For 8, 9 and 10 year-old boys, this is a familyand home-centered program. Boy Scouting: Boys, 11 to 17, work to achieve the goals of scouting with outdoor programs and adult counseling. Varsity Scouting: Young men, 14 to 17, work through programs like adventure, service and personal development. Venturing: This new program is for young men, 14 to 20. National Eagle Scout Association: Young men who have received the Eagle Scout rank are part of this program to help other young men.At last count, more than 90 million people had been a boy scout at sometime during their lives.

The Wildwood High boys basketball head coach watched as his Wildcats (109) went scoreless in the third period and lost to local archrival South Sumter High (7-11) 53-29 in a non-district game Friday night at the Raiders gym. South Sumter was even missing one of its best scorers. Brandon Curtis was in North Carolina on a college visit. In the decisive third period, Cameron Bannister came off the bench to hit six points. Bo Farmer also added six of his 10 points as the Raiders destroyed their Sumter County rivals 22-0. The game was a low-scoring but even contest in the first half. Both teams were tied at 7-7 after one quarter. Wildwoods Rob Peterkin had four points for the Wildcats. Reace Kinley had three for the Raiders. The Wildcats outpointed their foes 10-9 in the second quarter. Chuck Brown, who would lead the Wildcats with seven points, scored four in the period and Wildwood led 17-16 at the half. Then, the Wildcats shooting died while the Raiders took off. Wildwood then outscored the Raiders 12-11 in the fourth quarter when the subs flooded the floor. Kinley led all scorers with 13 points. Wildwood hurt itself with horrible shooting and 18 turnovers. They also hit five of 10 free throws. This game may give Moreland nightmares. I have no idea, said Moreland. I think we were 2-for-21 from the free throw line. We didnt play very well. I thought the first half was as bad as it was going to get for us. Third quarter, we didnt score a point. Im in shock. We have been playing a lot better than that. We are going to have to shake this one off. We have to bounce back. The Raiders coach had a Cheshire cat look that said his team got away with one. We are missing Brandon Curtis and Devyn Jessmer, said Raiders coach A.J. Bryant. I think everybody else stepped up in their place. Bannister, one of our smallest guards, stepped up in the post. He gave us a spark. He played great defense. I think Wildwood expected us to play zone the whole game. We made changes offensively. Defensively, we wanted to make sure we found every shooter. We are fortunate to have our first basketball shutout. We have never had one of those before. Raiders shut out Wildcats LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent
