There are only a handful of them maybe four, maybe five. Bushnell City Manager Vince Ruano is one of a few city managers in the state to retire after spending more than three decades on the job. Ruano recently announced his upcoming retirement at a City Council meeting. His target retirement date is July 31. Im feeling real good about it Im thinking it could be a lot of fun, Ruano told the Times with a laugh when asked about his upcoming retirement. In the near future, the Florida native is looking forward to travelling with his wife and maybe even some extra time with is two grandchildren., Im definitely going to miss the people that I work with. I enjoy coming to work everyday, he said. But at the same time, Every season has its time and this seasons time has come. Typically, city managers never last or stay as long as Ruano has. Theres a very small club of them that stay over 30 years, said Ken Small, representative of the Florida League of Cities. With the league representing 407 cities throughout the state, Small says maybe four or five city managers have retained their positions as long as Ruano. It can be a precarious job, hinging on changing political climates in a city, the opinions of changing elected city leaders or the opportunity to move on to a different opportunity. But Ruano has stayed the course, and hes proud of the changes that have happened in the city during his stint as city manager. He looks at changes and additions to Bushnell that have occurred during his span as city manager. After being 31 years at the helm of a city like Bushnell, theres a lot Im proud of, he said, pointing out the effort and success of the community. That includes the construction and operation of the citys second water plant, located on Seminole. When I first got here, we hadnt even selected the engineering firm. It was also during his earliest years that they began to think about a city park. Original plans were for Iraq combat veteran and Sumter County native Adam Burke accepted the Presidential Citizens Award last Friday, from President Barack Obama. Burke earned the award for his innovative Veterans Farm which was created to teach veterans of all ages how to make a living off the land. The 19-acre site is in Jacksonville, where Burke now resides. He grew up in Webster and is the son of Webster Elementary School teacher Darlene Lanham. The mission of the farm is to assist combat veterans with disabilities in transitioning back into society, through the use of horticulture therapy. The sixmonth fellowship program promotes and supports agro-entrepreneurship and ecological horticulture. Disabled veterans receive a housing stipend while learning through the program. The program also branches out into the larger community. Veterans take an active role in On the weights ...

But Jarrod Paul Barlett Lane, 26, Bushnell, wasnt successful in eluding law enforcement officers for long. He was arrested the following day. Lane was arrested for battery by strangulation, burglary of an unoccupied vehicle, larceny and violation of an injunction protection for domestic violence. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond. Lane became the target of a manhunt about 7 a.m. on Feb. 14 after officers were informed that a domestic dispute between Lane and his girlfriend had turned from a verbal altercation into a physical attack with Lane attempting to strangle her, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. When deputies arrived at the home on W. Noble Avenue, the woman and three children were standing outside the home she shared with Lane.

P AGE A2SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 21, 2013 To Advertise Here, Call (352) 793-2161 To Advertise Here, Call (352) 793-2161 16-acre park in Jumpers Point, but they eventually began working the area along S.R. 48, now known as the Kenny Dixon Sports Complex. Over the years, theyve continued to add to the complex and Ruano said its something hes really proud of. That park is now 37 acres well over twice the size of the park planned in the original location. To me personally, thats something that I m really proud of being able to achieve for the city of Bushnell. He said hes heard from several people that its hard to believe a small town like Bushnell has a park of that quality and size. The still expanding wastewater system in Bushnell is also something he takes pride in. They began looking at that process back in the 1990s and today, their system has stretched beyond the city to become a regional system, serving Bushnell, Webster and Sumterville. Thats a pretty impressive thing for a small, little town to accomplish, he said. Other projects include the construction of the new City Hall and last but not least, the downtown park on Bushnell Plaza, drainage, sidewalks and bike paths. Before BushnellBack in those early years, when Ruano was choosing his career path, he could have become a physician like his father. I volunteered as a young kid in too many hospitals and didnt like what I saw. Then there was a change in majors in college. I started out studying engineering and I finished up studying business, he said. What changed his mind about his major? Its called physics, he said with a laugh. After leaving college, he became one of the first people to be dual certified in water, waste water. Ruano had spent five years working with the City of Mascotte (as public works director) commuting back and forth to Bushnell each weekday. Through his job, he was exposed to other city opportunities and also followed information in the Florida League of Cities. He learned about an opening in Bushnell through the organizations publication. Headquartered in Tallahassee, the Florida League of Cities is an organization uniting Floridas municipal governments, working to shape legislation, share the advantages or cooperative action, exchange ideas and experiences. The organization was originally created in 1922 to serve the needs of Floridas cities and promote local self-government. I was friends with a Lake County official, Ruano said of Clermonts then city manager George Forbes. It was Forbes who encouraged Ruano to pursue the Bushnell position and he was selected out of an estimated 70 applicants. Some of the council members at the time were Jerry Eubanks, Nancy Brogden, Frank Hamilton and P .K. Davis, with Howard Lowery as the mayor. They sort of all interviewed me and offered me the job and the rest is history, he said. He began work in December of 1981. I think its been a great place to work, I think Ive been blessed by being able to work as the city manager of my preferred home town, because you know, I basically chose Bushnell before Bushnell chose me. Theres been a lot of learning experiences. That includes learning the dynamics of groups, he said. Whether it be a board or a city council, you learn how to operate within the peramters and the things that the group is put together for. Ive learned how to use group dynamics, to get things accomplished, he said. And I think Ive also become a better listener as Ive matured. In the years that Ruano has served, state mandates have changed, but not so much the city. During that time, the state has put the Comprehensive Act of 1985 in place two volumes of information on land use. Into the futureAs for his retirement, Ruano entered the drop program in June of 2011 which meant he would have to retire within five years after that date. Theres a window of choice of about three years and he decided to choose the earlier date, rather than the later date. Hes taking retirement at 62 and notes, We do have plans, there are a lot of places that Betsy and I decided we would like to go, he said, citing Charleston and New Orleans as two cities theyd like to visit. Any advice for the future manager? Learn to listen, number one. And accomplish the goals set. But dont necessarily rush to get there, look for quality rather than speed, he said. Hes going to miss his job and the people he works with, but aside from vacations, he said, Im not going anywhere, Im going to stay right here. If they need me for anything, Im a phone call away. As for what others should know about Ruano? That I like this community that Im probably going to spend the rest of my life here.

P AGE A4SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 21, 2013 Open your heart W ith over 150 foster and adoptive individuals behind the Open Your Heart recruitment event, it is sure to be an occasion to witness firsthand. Open Your Heart is the first large-scale foster/adoptive recruitment event in Circuit 5 Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter Counties. With the push from Secretary Wilkins to recruit 1,200 new foster homes, Kids Central partnered with The Fathers House and other Lake County churches to execute Open Your Heart and to spread the word of the need for more foster and adoptive families, not only in Lake County but all Florida counties. In order to appropriately match the children entering foster care with the best suited placement, it is necessary to have approximately three family-like settings available per child. Open Your Heart is part of Love Week Central Florida, February 15-23. Love Week culminates with Open Your Heart. Everyone is encouraged to attend, whether in Lake County or any other county. The event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 9 a.m. to noon at The Fathers House, 2301 South Street, Leesburg. A light breakfast will be served thanks to StayWell, The Fathers House and other supporters. The main focus of Open Your Heart is the individuals who live the life those who currently care for the children and support the families in crisis. The dynamic event is unique since its focus is on the families and not the professionals. In an effort to drive home the need, the families are assisting to create a visual impact through specialized t-shirts. In contrast to other recruitment events, Open Your Heart will only spend one hour of stage time. The speakers taking the stage are the experts the parents and children. After the speakers, the main event will take place. All of the community attendees will have the opportunity to interact and speak with the adoptive parents, foster parents, adopted children, foster children, volunteers and various professionals working in child welfare. Through one-on-one informational sessions and candid discussions, truth will be spread, myths dispelled, and experiences shared. Even those not interested or capable of bringing a child into their home can be a great support to the families in need. Ways to assist and support the families will also be highlighted. Kids Central, Inc. is the not-for-profit lead agency selected by the State of Florida to coordinate child protection services in Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter Counties (Circuit 5). Florida has seen an increase of fatal hit-and-run crashes during the last two years. The Florida Highway Patrol is partnering with the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida Police of Chiefs Association and the Florida Department of Transportation to combat the problem. The campaign aims to reduce the number of hit-andrun crashes in Florida by educating drivers on their responsibilities if involved in a crash and the consequences they face if they leave a crash scene. Hit-and-run crashes are a growing problem in Florida, said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton. Florida had nearly 70,000 hit-and-run crashes last year. We hope the education awareness campaign and our partnerships with Florida law enforcement agencies and FDOT will help us meet our mission goals of traffic safety. This week, the Patrol is hosting press conferences throughout the state to focus on the victims, Florida law and active cases. For more information about hit-and-run crash facts and tips, visit http://www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/Hit Run/. What to do after a crash: CALL law enforcement. REMAIN calm. ATTAIN vehicle, witness and driver information. SKETCH the scene, showing vehicle crash locations. HELP the injured. A few hit-and-run facts for Florida: Hit-and-run crashes involving fatalities increased from 162 in 2011 to 168 in 2012. The number of hit-and-run crashes statewide equaled 69,994 in 2012. Three out of every five fatalities in 2012 were pedestrians struck in hit-and-run crashes. What does Florida law say? The driver must immediately stop and remain at the scene, must exchange information and render reasonable assistance to any injured persons. Leaving the scene of a crash involving a death commits a felony of the first degree and carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in a state correctional facility and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Leaving the scene of a crash involving injuries commits a felony of the third degree and carries a maximum penalty of five years in a state correctional facility and/or a fine up to $5,000. Leaving the scene involving property damage commits a misdemeanor of the second degree and carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in a county jail and/or fine of $500.

The barbaric and horrific blood sport of dogfighting and cockfighting is widespread through American communities. Pain, suffering, and death are inflicted on thousands of animals who are forced to fight for their lives. Weaker animals are maimed and killed when used as bait in training. The illegal activities go beyond fighting, where gambling, drugs, and dangerous weapons are present. Recent legislation has passed with bipartisan support in the states of Florida and Michigan to strengthen laws and toughen penalties on both animal fighters and spectators. This is a form of animal cruelty that all parties in congress agree must be stopped. Although Florida has had one of the strongest animal fighting laws on the books, very recent legislation passed in the state of Michigan is being called, the new law that sets a national standard, by ASPCAs (American Society for the Prevention of Animal Cruelty) state director, Vicki Deisner. Michigan lawmakers who have passed what is to believed as the toughest laws in the country, sends a strong message, Michigan is not a good place to bring animal fighting. This new law enables us to go after the more long-term breeders and fighters, State Prosecutor Prasad states. This new legislation is getting tough with 20 years of prison time, $100,000.00 fines, and having your home, your barn, your property and cars confiscated. Michigan State Republican Senator Rick Jones calls it A sweeping legislation that has been noticed nationwide as a real example of getting tough on a terrible blood sport. As in Michigan and throughout the country, Florida too has large organized fighting operations where these violent and inhumane activities continue. The good citizens of this state must make their voices heard. We need to call our local and state representatives and demand stronger laws similar to what Michigan has enacted to end these violent acts against animals. And we need to demand that the laws are enforced, and the sentencings of these crimes are severe. By enforcing these laws, not only are animals in dire situations helped, but history has shown us that people who abuse animals are likely to be abusive toward children, seniors, or others who cannot defend themselves. Enforcing animal cruelty laws may likely be stopping abusive behaviors on defenseless human victims. So many animals are loved and cared for, but so many others suffer their whole lives. If you see any form of animal cruelty, report it to your local law enforcement and animal services. Your voice and involvement can save the life of an innocent animal and put an end to the pain and suffering that animal has endured.

To commemorate that anniversary, Florida 4-H has come up with a goal related to the number 500: The UF-based organization hopes to bring 500 green-shirted young people to the states government headquarters in Tallahassee for its annual 4-H Day at the Capitol event on March 14. -H Day at the Capitol is a unique event because it isnt just about being at the capitol and looking at the legislative chambers, but it is about understanding what is taking place within those chambers, said Jordan Callaham, state 4-H events coordinator. The event has drawn about 400 4-H youth in recent years, but event organizers hope to add 100 to their ranks this year, Callaham said. Participants will take part in mock legislative sessions, observe government at work, watch the states Supreme Court, or any of a number of other activities designed to enlighten them about government. The 4-Hers also will have the chance to meet and talk with elected officials. 4-H is the nations largest youth development organization and has more than 230,000 members in Florida. 4-H is part of the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

These grants help eligible schools improve the health and wellbeing of their students and connect with local agricultural producers. USDAs Farm to School grants connect schools with their local farmers, ranchers and food businesses, providing new economic opportunities to food producers and bringing healthy, local offerings into school cafeterias, said Merrigan. This year, three different kinds of grants will be available. Proposals are due at midnight EST, April 24, 2013. To assist eligible entities in preparing proposals, USDA will host a series of webinars related to the application process: March 5, 1 p.m. Planning Grants March 6, 1 p.m. Implementation Grants March 7, 1 p.m. Support Service Grants The Farm to School Grant Program is part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which authorized and funded USDA to assist eligible entities, through grants and technical assistance, in implementing farm to school programs that improve access to local foods in eligible schools. The Act provides $5 million annually to support grants, technical assistance, and the federal administrative costs related to USDAs Farm to School Program. In this funding cycle, USDA anticipates awarding up to $5 million in grants. Healthier school meals are a key component of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by the First Lady as part of her Lets Move! campaign and signed into law by President Obama. Farm to School is one component of USDAs Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food (KYF) initiative, launched in 2009 to coordinate the Departments work on local and regional food systems and create new opportunities for farmers, ranchers, consumers and rural communities. An interactive view of USDA programs that support local and regional foods, including farm to school and farm to institution, is available in the Know Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food Compass. The KYF Compass consists of an interactive map of USDA-supported local and regional food projects and an accompanying guide to programs and results. Farm to school grants

At Tracys Point in Lake Panasoffkee Rain practically framed the Thursday softball game between Wildwood High and Citrus High at the Wildcats field. There was a brief shower before the game but it didnt prevent the game from being played. It rained lightly after the game as if to pull the curtain on the event. And Citrus rained runs on Wildwood 11-0 in a five-inning mercy rule non-district contest. The Canes (1-1) hit Wildcat hurler Lacy Nordle for four first run innings with three hits and two errors. Citruss Kelly Abramawich belted a threerun, bases cleansing double to key a five-run third inning and give the visitors a 9-0 lead. Abramawichs twin sister, Amy, hit a two-run single in the fifth inning to give the Canes all the runs they needed that night. Citrus had seven hits and took advantage of five Wildcat errors. Citrus hurler Kayla Quisenberry allowed two hits and struck out three to take the victory. Citrus committed one error. Wildwoods Passion Mills and Jacey Green had the Wildcats safeties. Good defense, said Citrus High softball coach Larry Bishop. Good job overall. We really stressed trying to eliminate the errors. I thought the girls responded well. She (Quisenberry) was spot on tonight. Im very pleased with the way we played tonight. Citrus had a turnaround from Tuesdays game. They committed five errors and lost 14-3 in six inning contest against Ocala Forest in Inverness. The Wildcats have three seventh graders and are hoping to learn from games like Thursdays. Citrus hit the ball pretty well, said Wildwood coach Adam Cardona. They are a good ball club. We came out and didnt play our game and kind of gave up. Our pitchers are getting better and hitting their spots. Other than that, it is a matter of getting back to the drawing board and getting back to work.

P AGE A12SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY F EBRUARY 21, 2013 Not many coaches will describe an athlete as a coachs dream. So, South Sumter High boys weightlifting coach Ty Lawrence must be serious when he describes Davarreus Gibson in those terms. Gibson is a multi sport athlete who is a running back on the football team. He is hoping for a college scholarship. He doesnt cause the coach in problems in the classroom where he has a 3.0 grade point average. The Wildwood native did a nice job Feb. 13 at the meet at the Sunlake High gym. He had a 240-pound bench press and a 190-pound clean and jerk for a total of 430 pounds. He was competing in the 169pound class. Naturally, Gibson wants his senior lifting season to end with him taking home a medal from the state weightlifting meet in Kissimmee in April. He started lifting when he was in the sixth grade. Its all about keeping myself in shape, he said. This is what we do. Im trying to get bigger, stronger and faster. You always want to take a step above. You always try to better yourself. Gibson said he almost tore his ACL two years ago and lifting helped him recover. It helped tremendously, he said. I got faster. I healed pretty quickly. I do about a lower 4.5 or 4.6 in the 40 yard dash. I love football. I love the contact. I like the competition. Gibson appreciates his coachs efforts. Coach Ty Lawrence always gets on me, Gibson said. We have a pretty good relationship. Im a pretty hard worker. He helps me keep going. Likewise, Lawrence is a great admirer of his lifter. He is a great kid, great weightlifter, great track kid, said Lawrence. Hes also a great football player. He is a tremendous student athlete. I cant say enough good things about him. He is more of a quiet kind of kid. He never seems to have a bad day. He is a coachs dream. Hes at practice every day. He works hard every day. He gets the young kids involved every day. Were very fortunate to have him. Sumter SportsWhen it comes to athletics, Davarreous Gibson is a coachs dream according to South Sumter High boys weightlifting coach Ty Lawrence.

The Wild, Wonderful Withlacoochee participants paddled through the Wysong-Coogler Dam at Carlsons Landing in Sumter County on Thursday and headed to Potts Preserve in Citrus County.

There are only a handful of them maybe four, maybe five. Bushnell City Manager Vince Ruano is one of a few city managers in the state to retire after spending more than three decades on the job. Ruano recently announced his upcoming retirement at a City Council meeting. His target retirement date is July 31. Im feeling real good about it Im thinking it could be a lot of fun, Ruano told the Times with a laugh when asked about his upcoming retirement. In the near future, the Florida native is looking forward to travelling with his wife and maybe even some extra time with is two grandchildren., Im definitely going to miss the people that I work with. I enjoy coming to work everyday, he said. But at the same time, Every season has its time and this seasons time has come. Typically, city managers never last or stay as long as Ruano has. Theres a very small club of them that stay over 30 years, said Ken Small, representative of the Florida League of Cities. With the league representing 407 cities throughout the state, Small says maybe four or five city managers have retained their positions as long as Ruano. It can be a precarious job, hinging on changing political climates in a city, the opinions of changing elected city leaders or the opportunity to move on to a different opportunity. But Ruano has stayed the course, and hes proud of the changes that have happened in the city during his stint as city manager. He looks at changes and additions to Bushnell that have occurred during his span as city manager. After being 31 years at the helm of a city like Bushnell, theres a lot Im proud of, he said, pointing out the effort and success of the community. That includes the construction and operation of the citys second water plant, located on Seminole. When I first got here, we hadnt even selected the engineering firm. It was also during his earliest years that they began to think about a city park. Original plans were for Iraq combat veteran and Sumter County native Adam Burke accepted the Presidential Citizens Award last Friday, from President Barack Obama. Burke earned the award for his innovative Veterans Farm which was created to teach veterans of all ages how to make a living off the land. The 19-acre site is in Jacksonville, where Burke now resides. He grew up in Webster and is the son of Webster Elementary School teacher Darlene Lanham. The mission of the farm is to assist combat veterans with disabilities in transitioning back into society, through the use of horticulture therapy. The sixmonth fellowship program promotes and supports agro-entrepreneurship and ecological horticulture. Disabled veterans receive a housing stipend while learning through the program. The program also branches out into the larger community. Veterans take an active role in On the weights ...

But Jarrod Paul Barlett Lane, 26, Bushnell, wasnt successful in eluding law enforcement officers for long. He was arrested the following day. Lane was arrested for battery by strangulation, burglary of an unoccupied vehicle, larceny and violation of an injunction protection for domestic violence. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center without bond. Lane became the target of a manhunt about 7 a.m. on Feb. 14 after officers were informed that a domestic dispute between Lane and his girlfriend had turned from a verbal altercation into a physical attack with Lane attempting to strangle her, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. When deputies arrived at the home on W. Noble Avenue, the woman and three children were standing outside the home she shared with Lane.

Over the years, theyve continued to add to the complex and Ruano said its something hes really proud of. That park is now 37 acres well over twice the size of the park planned in the original location. To me personally, thats something that I m really proud of being able to achieve for the city of Bushnell. He said hes heard from several people that its hard to believe a small town like Bushnell has a park of that quality and size. The still expanding wastewater system in Bushnell is also something he takes pride in. They began looking at that process back in the 1990s and today, their system has stretched beyond the city to become a regional system, serving Bushnell, Webster and Sumterville. Thats a pretty impressive thing for a small, little town to accomplish, he said. Other projects include the construction of the new City Hall and last but not least, the downtown park on Bushnell Plaza, drainage, sidewalks and bike paths.Before BushnellBack in those early years, when Ruano was choosing his career path, he could have become a physician like his father. I volunteered as a young kid in too many hospitals and didnt like what I saw. Then there was a change in majors in college. I started out studying engineering and I finished up studying business, he said. What changed his mind about his major? Its called physics, he said with a laugh. After leaving college, he became one of the first people to be dual certified in water, waste water. Ruano had spent five years working with the City of Mascotte (as public works director) commuting back and forth to Bushnell each weekday. Through his job, he was exposed to other city opportunities and also followed information in the Florida League of Cities. He learned about an opening in Bushnell through the organizations publication. Headquartered in Tallahassee, the Florida League of Cities is an organization uniting Floridas municipal governments, working to shape legislation, share the advantages or cooperative action, exchange ideas and experiences. The organization was originally created in 1922 to serve the needs of Floridas cities and promote local self-government. I was friends with a Lake County official, Ruano said of Clermonts then city manager George Forbes. It was Forbes who encouraged Ruano to pursue the Bushnell position and he was selected out of an estimated 70 applicants. Some of the council members at the time were Jerry Eubanks, Nancy Brogden, Frank Hamilton and P.K. Davis, with Howard Lowery as the mayor. They sort of all interviewed me and offered me the job and the rest is history, he said. He began work in December of 1981. I think its been a great place to work, I think Ive been blessed by being able to work as the city manager of my preferred home town, because you know, I basically chose Bushnell before Bushnell chose me. Theres been a lot of learning experiences. That includes learning the dynamics of groups, he said. Whether it be a board or a city council, you learn how to operate within the peramters and the things that the group is put together for. Ive learned how to use group dynamics, to get things accomplished, he said. And I think Ive also become a better listener as Ive matured. In the years that Ruano has served, state mandates have changed, but not so much the city. During that time, the state has put the Comprehensive Act of 1985 in place two volumes of information on land use.Into the futureAs for his retirement, Ruano entered the drop program in June of 2011 which meant he would have to retire within five years after that date. Theres a window of choice of about three years and he decided to choose the earlier date, rather than the later date. Hes taking retirement at 62 and notes, We do have plans, there are a lot of places that Betsy and I decided we would like to go, he said, citing Charleston and New Orleans as two cities theyd like to visit. Any advice for the future manager? Learn to listen, number one. And accomplish the goals set. But dont necessarily rush to get there, look for quality rather than speed, he said. Hes going to miss his job and the people he works with, but aside from vacations, he said, Im not going anywhere, Im going to stay right here. If they need me for anything, Im a phone call away. As for what others should know about Ruano? That I like this community that Im probably going to spend the rest of my life here.

The officer also discovered marijuana and pills inside the vehicle.

In order to appropriately match the children entering foster care with the best suited placement, it is necessary to have approximately three family-like settings available per child. Open Your Heart is part of Love Week Central Florida, February 15-23. Love Week culminates with Open Your Heart. Everyone is encouraged to attend, whether in Lake County or any other county. The event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 9 a.m. to noon at The Fathers House, 2301 South Street, Leesburg. A light breakfast will be served thanks to StayWell, The Fathers House and other supporters. The main focus of Open Your Heart is the individuals who live the life those who currently care for the children and support the families in crisis. The dynamic event is unique since its focus is on the families and not the professionals. In an effort to drive home the need, the families are assisting to create a visual impact through specialized t-shirts. In contrast to other recruitment events, Open Your Heart will only spend one hour of stage time. The speakers taking the stage are the experts the parents and children. After the speakers, the main event will take place. All of the community attendees will have the opportunity to interact and speak with the adoptive parents, foster parents, adopted children, foster children, volunteers and various professionals working in child welfare. Through one-on-one informational sessions and candid discussions, truth will be spread, myths dispelled, and experiences shared. Even those not interested or capable of bringing a child into their home can be a great support to the families in need. Ways to assist and support the families will also be highlighted. Kids Central, Inc. is the not-for-profit lead agency selected by the State of Florida to coordinate child protection services in Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion and Sumter Counties (Circuit 5). Florida has seen an increase of fatal hit-and-run crashes during the last two years. The Florida Highway Patrol is partnering with the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida Police of Chiefs Association and the Florida Department of Transportation to combat the problem. The campaign aims to reduce the number of hit-andrun crashes in Florida by educating drivers on their responsibilities if involved in a crash and the consequences they face if they leave a crash scene. Hit-and-run crashes are a growing problem in Florida, said FHP Director, Col. David Brierton. Florida had nearly 70,000 hit-and-run crashes last year. We hope the education awareness campaign and our partnerships with Florida law enforcement agencies and FDOT will help us meet our mission goals of traffic safety. This week, the Patrol is hosting press conferences throughout the state to focus on the victims, Florida law and active cases. For more information about hit-and-run crash facts and tips, visit http://www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/Hit Run/. What to do after a crash:CALL law enforcement. REMAIN calm. ATTAIN vehicle, witness and driver information. SKETCH the scene, showing vehicle crash locations. HELP the injured. A few hit-and-run facts for Florida: Hit-and-run crashes involving fatalities increased from 162 in 2011 to 168 in 2012. The number of hit-and-run crashes statewide equaled 69,994 in 2012. Three out of every five fatalities in 2012 were pedestrians struck in hit-and-run crashes. What does Florida law say? The driver must immediately stop and remain at the scene, must exchange information and render reasonable assistance to any injured persons. Leaving the scene of a crash involving a death commits a felony of the first degree and carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in a state correctional facility and/or a fine of up to $10,000. Leaving the scene of a crash involving injuries commits a felony of the third degree and carries a maximum penalty of five years in a state correctional facility and/or a fine up to $5,000. Leaving the scene involving property damage commits a misdemeanor of the second degree and carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in a county jail and/or fine of $500. Heres what some safety advocates had to say: The FPCA Highway Safety Committee along with our member agencies throughout the state fully support the Hitand-Run Awareness Campaign. The FPCA and its members are committed to supporting and developing strategies that educate the citizens we serve on ways to make the roadways of Florida a safer place for drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists. ~ Chief Art Bodenheimer, Lake Alfred Police Department and the Florida Police Chiefs Associations Highway Safety Committee Chair We commend FHP on their efforts to reduce hit-and-run crashes. This is a great example of a safety partnership that will continue to drive down fatalities in Florida. ~ Lora Hollingsworth, Florida Department of Transportation Chief Safety Officer The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

The barbaric and horrific blood sport of dogfighting and cockfighting is widespread through American communities. Pain, suffering, and death are inflicted on thousands of animals who are forced to fight for their lives. Weaker animals are maimed and killed when used as bait in training. The illegal activities go beyond fighting, where gambling, drugs, and dangerous weapons are present. Recent legislation has passed with bipartisan support in the states of Florida and Michigan to strengthen laws and toughen penalties on both animal fighters and spectators. This is a form of animal cruelty that all parties in congress agree must be stopped. Although Florida has had one of the strongest animal fighting laws on the books, very recent legislation passed in the state of Michigan is being called, the new law that sets a national standard, by ASPCAs (American Society for the Prevention of Animal Cruelty) state director, Vicki Deisner. Michigan lawmakers who have passed what is to believed as the toughest laws in the country, sends a strong message, Michigan is not a good place to bring animal fighting. This new law enables us to go after the more long-term breeders and fighters, State Prosecutor Prasad states. This new legislation is getting tough with 20 years of prison time, $100,000.00 fines, and having your home, your barn, your property and cars confiscated. Michigan State Republican Senator Rick Jones calls it A sweeping legislation that has been noticed nationwide as a real example of getting tough on a terrible blood sport. As in Michigan and throughout the country, Florida too has large organized fighting operations where these violent and inhumane activities continue. The good citizens of this state must make their voices heard. We need to call our local and state representatives and demand stronger laws similar to what Michigan has enacted to end these violent acts against animals. And we need to demand that the laws are enforced, and the sentencings of these crimes are severe. By enforcing these laws, not only are animals in dire situations helped, but history has shown us that people who abuse animals are likely to be abusive toward children, seniors, or others who cannot defend themselves. Enforcing animal cruelty laws may likely be stopping abusive behaviors on defenseless human victims. So many animals are loved and cared for, but so many others suffer their whole lives. If you see any form of animal cruelty, report it to your local law enforcement and animal services. Your voice and involvement can save the life of an innocent animal and put an end to the pain and suffering that animal has endured.

To commemorate that anniversary, Florida 4-H has come up with a goal related to the number 500: The UF-based organization hopes to bring 500 green-shirted young people to the states government headquarters in Tallahassee for its annual 4-H Day at the Capitol event on March 14. -H Day at the Capitol is a unique event because it isnt just about being at the capitol and looking at the legislative chambers, but it is about understanding what is taking place within those chambers, said Jordan Callaham, state 4-H events coordinator. The event has drawn about 400 4-H youth in recent years, but event organizers hope to add 100 to their ranks this year, Callaham said. Participants will take part in mock legislative sessions, observe government at work, watch the states Supreme Court, or any of a number of other activities designed to enlighten them about government. The 4-Hers also will have the chance to meet and talk with elected officials. 4-H is the nations largest youth development organization and has more than 230,000 members in Florida. 4-H is part of the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

These grants help eligible schools improve the health and wellbeing of their students and connect with local agricultural producers. USDAs Farm to School grants connect schools with their local farmers, ranchers and food businesses, providing new economic opportunities to food producers and bringing healthy, local offerings into school cafeterias, said Merrigan. This year, three different kinds of grants will be available. Proposals are due at midnight EST, April 24, 2013. To assist eligible entities in preparing proposals, USDA will host a series of webinars related to the application process: March 5, 1 p.m. Planning Grants March 6, 1 p.m. Implementation Grants March 7, 1 p.m. Support Service Grants The Farm to School Grant Program is part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which authorized and funded USDA to assist eligible entities, through grants and technical assistance, in implementing farm to school programs that improve access to local foods in eligible schools. The Act provides $5 million annually to support grants, technical assistance, and the federal administrative costs related to USDAs Farm to School Program. In this funding cycle, USDA anticipates awarding up to $5 million in grants. Healthier school meals are a key component of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by the First Lady as part of her Lets Move! campaign and signed into law by President Obama. Farm to School is one component of USDAs Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food (KYF) initiative, launched in 2009 to coordinate the Departments work on local and regional food systems and create new opportunities for farmers, ranchers, consumers and rural communities. An interactive view of USDA programs that support local and regional foods, including farm to school and farm to institution, is available in the Know Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food Compass. The KYF Compass consists of an interactive map of USDA-supported local and regional food projects and an accompanying guide to programs and results. Farm to school grants

At Tracys Point in Lake Panasoffkee Rain practically framed the Thursday softball game between Wildwood High and Citrus High at the Wildcats field. There was a brief shower before the game but it didnt prevent the game from being played. It rained lightly after the game as if to pull the curtain on the event. And Citrus rained runs on Wildwood 11-0 in a five-inning mercy rule non-district contest. The Canes (1-1) hit Wildcat hurler Lacy Nordle for four first run innings with three hits and two errors. Citruss Kelly Abramawich belted a threerun, bases cleansing double to key a five-run third inning and give the visitors a 9-0 lead. Abramawichs twin sister, Amy, hit a two-run single in the fifth inning to give the Canes all the runs they needed that night. Citrus had seven hits and took advantage of five Wildcat errors. Citrus hurler Kayla Quisenberry allowed two hits and struck out three to take the victory. Citrus committed one error. Wildwoods Passion Mills and Jacey Green had the Wildcats safeties. Good defense, said Citrus High softball coach Larry Bishop. Good job overall. We really stressed trying to eliminate the errors. I thought the girls responded well. She (Quisenberry) was spot on tonight. Im very pleased with the way we played tonight. Citrus had a turnaround from Tuesdays game. They committed five errors and lost 14-3 in six inning contest against Ocala Forest in Inverness. The Wildcats have three seventh graders and are hoping to learn from games like Thursdays. Citrus hit the ball pretty well, said Wildwood coach Adam Cardona. They are a good ball club. We came out and didnt play our game and kind of gave up. Our pitchers are getting better and hitting their spots. Other than that, it is a matter of getting back to the drawing board and getting back to work.

PAGEA12SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY21, 2013 Not many coaches will describe an athlete as a coachs dream. So, South Sumter High boys weightlifting coach Ty Lawrence must be serious when he describes Davarreus Gibson in those terms. Gibson is a multi sport athlete who is a running back on the football team. He is hoping for a college scholarship. He doesnt cause the coach in problems in the classroom where he has a 3.0 grade point average. The Wildwood native did a nice job Feb. 13 at the meet at the Sunlake High gym. He had a 240-pound bench press and a 190-pound clean and jerk for a total of 430 pounds. He was competing in the 169pound class. Naturally, Gibson wants his senior lifting season to end with him taking home a medal from the state weightlifting meet in Kissimmee in April. He started lifting when he was in the sixth grade. Its all about keeping myself in shape, he said. This is what we do. Im trying to get bigger, stronger and faster. You always want to take a step above. You always try to better yourself. Gibson said he almost tore his ACL two years ago and lifting helped him recover. It helped tremendously, he said. I got faster. I healed pretty quickly. I do about a lower 4.5 or 4.6 in the 40 yard dash. I love football. I love the contact. I like the competition. Gibson appreciates his coachs efforts. Coach Ty Lawrence always gets on me, Gibson said. We have a pretty good relationship. Im a pretty hard worker. He helps me keep going. Likewise, Lawrence is a great admirer of his lifter. He is a great kid, great weightlifter, great track kid, said Lawrence. Hes also a great football player. He is a tremendous student athlete. I cant say enough good things about him. He is more of a quiet kind of kid. He never seems to have a bad day. He is a coachs dream. Hes at practice every day. He works hard every day. He gets the young kids involved every day. Were very fortunate to have him. Sumter SportsWhen it comes to athletics, Davarreous Gibson is a coachs dream according to South Sumter High boys weightlifting coach Ty Lawrence. He is a multi-sport athlete who is a running back on the football team and hoping for a college scholarship. The South Sumter Weightlifting team is shown.

The Wild, Wonderful Withlacoochee participants paddled through the Wysong-Coogler Dam at Carlsons Landing in Sumter County on Thursday and headed to Potts Preserve in Citrus County.
