M ud, ice cold water and a ring of fire were the big draw last weekend as an estimate 2,500 people came out to watch or participate in Sumter Countys first ever Cowboy Crawl in Rutland. Set at Providence Ranch on S.R. 44, the event included 25 obstacles and an estimated 1,500 brave participants taking on the crawl challenge, according to Samantha Merritt of the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce. Slated as a fundraiser for the organization, and a day out for the community, those who attended experienced everything from live music and entertainment to the wild race through obstacles. Some of the other obstacles included Alligator Alley built by Chandlers Electric and included a trip over a pond. There were two choices by tightrope or a very long set of monkey bars. There was Snake Bite Alley with obstacles inside a screened in maze, Water Moccasin Way balance CRAZY FOR QUILTS Thursday, March 28, 2013Volume 127 Number 13Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.com For more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comT IMES INSIDE: QUICK CLICK SUMTER COUNTY Bushnell field narrows for new city manager When the Bushnell City Council meets next month, it will officially receive a recommendation from its committee established to find a new city manager. The Bushnell City Manager Selection Advisory Committee was created last month in response to notification from City Manager Vince Ruano that he will be retiring from his position at the end of July. Ruano has been the city manager for more than three decades. Bushnell Mayor Bil Spaude selected members for the committee from a variety of backgrounds in business, government and community. The committees recommendation for the position, which pays between $71,598 to $118,137 annually, will be presented when the City Council meets at 6 p.m. Monday, April 1, in Bushnell City Hall. The group, in a 7-to-1 vote, will be recommending that the board consider hiring Bushnell Utility Director Bruce Hickle for the position. Hickle has worked for the city for the past 10 years. While Hickle is the committees recommendation that does not mean that the board may not want to consider other applicants or initiate additional advertising for the position, Ruano said. We have a policy that allows us to advertise internally first, Ruano said. The committee met late last month and constructed a list of requirements for potential applicants. Those qualifications include: having a bachelors degree in public administration or related field with eight years of administrative experience, completion of a certified public manager or completion within three years, willing to live within the greater Bushnell area. Members of the committee are: Hal Lyons, Danny Lowery, Brad Sheppard, Sandee Howell, Felix Adams, Glen Frazier, Lori Maddox and Kay McCoy. The mayor also serves as a member.

The dog was impounded by Sumter County Animal Control because Layer could not provide proof of vaccinations, the report states. In the meantime, a Wildwood police officer responding to the emergency call noticed a strong, pungent odor of what appeared to be spoiled food, according to the officers report. The appearance and odor of the residence, coupled with the lack of parental supervision that resulted in the canine bite incident, resulted in concern for the care and well being of the (three) juvenile occupants of the residence under the care and control of Layer Jr. The officer also reported that the kitchen contained numerous trash bags and a large amount of dishes that contained what appeared to be spoiled food. Fecal material was found on the floor and what appeared to be dried fecal material was at several locations on the carpets. A Department of Children and Families investigator was called in and determined that Layer had failed to provide the children with the care, supervision and services necessary to maintain the childrens physical and mental health the report states. ARREST continued from Page 1 Caller arrested for drugs An emergency call to the sheriffs office Monday night resulted in the callers arrest when deputies found chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine inside his home. Allen West, 45, Lake Panasoffkee, was arrested about 9:39 p.m. after deputies responding to an emergency call from West, found him in a wooded area next to his residence, according to a sheriffs office report. West said two men had forcibly entered his home by kicking in the front door. West fled from the home and hid in woods. He requested that deputies search his residence to determine if the intruders were still inside, the report states. During the search, deputies noticed a strong acidic odor coming from the master bedroom, the report states. They then found plastic soda bottles with tubing protruding from them in both the bedroom and bathroom. The bottles also contained a white pasty substance that was also on the counters. The items are commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine. West was then called into the residence where he was then questioned. Deputies also discovered some items had been placed in a portable cooler. West said he hid them to avoid getting into trouble. He said they were cooking it without giving any details. He then confessed that he had manufactured and smoked methamphetamine in his home as recently as two weeks ago. The Special Investigations Squad responded and executed a search warrant. Detectives discovered ammonium nitrate, sodium hydroxide. a corrosive acid, lithium strips and other items commonly used to produce methamphetamine. The lab was dismantled by the Special Investigations Squad. West was transported to the Sumter County Detention Center and charged with production of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance. Bond was set at $40,000.

P AGE A4SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 28, 2013 County takes honor W hile you may not agree with local government leaders operations or decisions, at least they are transparent, or, so says the Sunshine Review, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to government transparency. The organization recently released the winners of the fourth annual Sunny Awards and among the winners was Sumter County Board of County Commissioners (Sumter County). The award, which honors the most transparent government websites in the nation, went to 247 government entities with Florida receiving the most Sunny Awards. For the 2013 awards, editors at Sunshine Review analyzed more than 1,000 government websites and graded each on a 10-point transparency checklist, according to their press release. Editors looked at content available on government websites against what should be provided. They sought information on items such as budgets, meetings, lobbying, financial audits, contracts, academic performance, public records and taxes. The winners of the Sunny Award all received an Agrade or greater during the extensive grading process. In Florida, 25 awards were given out. Again, the award is for the countys website. We have to agree that the countys website is easy to navigate and does deserve kudos for being user friendly. County government, well were not so sure thats always so transparent. Humane success It was a wonderful week of exciting events for the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County as they hosted their Spring Open House on Sat. 3/16. They welcomed the public to visit their new expanded dog and cat housing areas. Added fun to the day was possible thanks to the Sumter County Sheriffs K-9 unit with demonstrations. HS/SPCA volunteer Deputy David Clark and his colleagues presented various skills with their K-9 partners and how these teams bravely protect our community. A dog handling Q&A with local dog trainer and volunteer Lisa Stamper of Paws and Effect Pet Training was well attended by interested pet owners and Society volunteers. A delicious bake sale, plant sale and equine tack sale, and a unique Pony Plop Bingo game rounded out the days festivities! The Society looks forward to future annual Open House Spring Fling events! On behalf of the homeless animals in Sumter County, they also wish to thank everyone who made The Shred! Paper Shredding event its biggest success to date raising over $7200 on March 23rd. This event was possible thanks to the generosity and sponsorship from The Rainbow Family and Friends Club of The Villages, Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital, Hills Shred Express of Ocala, all local media coverage and our great community which showed up in droves with their shreddable documents, monetary donations and pet supplies to make a difference for animals in need. The HS/SPCA of Sumter County will be applying its contributions towards the Green Animal Shelter Fund. Also, the excitement of the upcoming Above Par for Animals Golf Ball Drop on April 13th was the buzz all day as people arrived for their $5 chance drawing tickets to win some grand prizes. Participants are looking forward to seeing their numbered golf balls drop from the ReMax Premier Realty hot air balloon at the George Nahas Chevrolet dealership. The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter has now entered its 31st year and has been steadily progressing in its community programs helping local animals and their people especially in this last year but it could not have been possible without the much appreciated support of its community of donors, volunteers, clubs, schools, churches, businesses and media. Our community is what makes the Humane Society/SPCA successful and we send our most sincere thanks to you all. With our gratitude, The Board of Directors The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. www.hsspca.org Residents ineligible to participate in ACA pre existing conditions My question is why none of the press published this very important loss of benefits to Florida Residents It has come to my attention and I know you will be interested in this tid bit. Actually it is more than a tid bit. Effective February 16, 2013, NO FLORIDA resident is eligible to participate in the pre existing conditions benefits afforded by the affordable care because The State of Florida turned down the 321 Million dollars that was allocated to the the state to establish their Pre Existing Condition program and elected not to do so. Evidently The 321 Million dollars has been re deposited in the PCIP The ACA Pre existing condition program,and will be used to fund the programs that were established by those states that established a program as part of the ACA. Joe Flynn The Villages With IRS, act now Florida residents who did not file a 2009 income tax return may have some good news coming to them but they have to act now or they may lose out. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is ready to return over $60 million to Florida taxpayers who did not file a tax return in 2009. However, claims for those funds must be made no later than April 15, 2013. According to the IRS, 62,700 Florida taxpayers are entitled to a refund with an estimated median of $577. Florida is tied with New York, and only California and Texas have more residents with unclaimed refunds. Many people may not have filed a return in 2009 because they had too little income to report. However, if their employer withheld taxes from their paychecks or other taxes were withheld, those people may be entitled to a refund of the withholdings. In these tough times, it simply doesnt make sense to leave money on the table. A refund could help you catch up on your utility bills or even put food on the table, said Caroline Ware the Director of the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic for Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida. But time is running out. Taxpayers need to act now. Free resources may be available for taxpayers who want to take advantage of this opportunity. Ware advised taxpayers to call 2-1-1 (a free referral service for essential health and human services) to be put in touch with a free tax preparer in their area. Taxpayers will also need to obtain a copy of their W-2 and have a Social Security card. Even if a taxpayer is not entitled to a refund, Ware also recommends filing a tax return to prevent identity theft. There are many benefits to filing a tax return, said Ware. You are less likely to be a victim of identify theft if you establish a tax account. Many Florida residents may also qualify for an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) which, in 2009, was worth as much as $5,657. Refund checks may be held, however, for those who did not file returns in 2010 or 2011, or if there are any amounts owed to the IRS, a state tax agency or if there are unpaid debts such as child support or student loans.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. The Knit/Crochet Group of Lake Panasoffkee won Best In Show at the 2013 Sumter County Fair. The Knit/Crochet Group of Lake Panasoffkee won Best In Show at the 2013 Sumter County Fair. Su Gerheim and Elizabeth Kehler saw last years display and decided to present a project to their knit/crochet group for this years fair. The project was to crochet an afghan made of different colored shapes. They named their project the Josephs Coat Afghan. The project began in early December. Elizabeth Kehler, Joyce Shaw, Dawn Zagrocki, Florine Bishop, Theresa Nitz, Candy Reed, Michelle Arnold, and Su Gerheim began by making shapes; triangles, circles, squares, large and small, long and short rows of colored yarns. Using no pattern, they then positioned them on a table to form a giant afghan. After pinning them together they crocheted black yarn around all the shapes, even changing positions of some of the shapes as they went. The ladies said it was a challenging project getting the shapes to fit, but all enjoyed working on the project which took almost three months to complete. The group worked on it at the Panasoffkee Community Library where they meet every Tuesday at 10 a.m. Everyone was thrilled when they learned their Josephs Coat Afghan had won Best In Show. Local group takes Best In Show Sumter AVID-ly recruits students for programs Qualifying students in grades 7, 8, and 9 have been given another avenue to become college ready. The AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program was implemented in all Sumter County middle and high schools in the fall of 2012. AVID is a college readiness system offered as an academic elective class. Students accepted into the program strengthen their critical thinking skills by learning new strategies through lessons involving WICOR: Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading. AVID is a tremendous opportunity to better prepare many of our students for success in college and the workforce, said Rick Shirley, superintendent of Sumter district schools. An AVID student is in the academic middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path, with support. Often, these students are not reaching their full academic potential. The AVID program is designed to provide support so students are able to meet high expectations in rigorous, core, content area classes. Another key to the program is to create a school-wide culture of college readiness, in which all students, teachers, and parents take part. Recruitment for the 2013-14 school year has begun, and has expanded to include grades 6 and 10. As part of this process, a number of criteria are considered, including: students grades, state test scores, citizenship, attendance, determination, first in family to attend college, economically disadvantaged, and other special circumstances. All submitted applications will be reviewed by the AVID Site Team at each school and the decisions to interview and select students will depend upon the review process and availability. If you are interested in obtaining additional information about the AVID program for grades 6-10, please contact the district college readiness coordinator, or a school AVID coordinator listed: District Contact: Summer Bisignano (352)7932315 x 214; SSMS: Denise Shirley (352)793-2232, Applications due by April 11; SSHS: Anne Foote Collins (352)7933131, Applications due by April 12; WMHS: Mark Streit (352)748-1314, Applications due by April 12.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 28, 2013, P AGE A9 To advertise on this page call 352-793-2161 The Florida Native Plant Society's (FNPS) 33rd annual conference will be held May 16th through May 19th at the University of North Florida's (UNF) University Center, 21000 Alumni Drive Jacksonville, FL 32224. The conference theme, "Celebrating La Florida; the Land of Flowers," is to commemorate Ponce deLeon's naming of this region when he landed here 500 years ago. FNPS is proud to be using a copy of Jacksonville artist Jim Draper's "Large Passion" (oil on canvas, 48" x 60") as our conference logo. The painting depicts one of the many beautiful native plants that greeted those early explorers. No wonder they thought this was the "Land of Flowers." The conference offers 24 field trips, 4 workshops, 20+ speakers, a 2-day native plant sale (open to the public), 3 evening social events, author signings, silent auction, raffles, and more. Online registration is open now and anyone may register. Go to www.fnps.org/conference to register for the conference, sign up for the field trips, social, or workshops. There will be a special stand-alone 2-hour Home Landscape Design Workshop on Saturday afternoon targeted toward homeowners who wish to learn about residential design and which native plants are best suited for their landscapes. This $25 workshop will be presented by two FNPS members who are landscape architects. Laurie Sheldon, one of the instructors said, "We will provide attendees with a basic understanding of the design process and local flora so that they can make informed decisions when it comes to selecting and placing plants in their landscapes. If they want to, they can go directly from the workshop to the native plant vendors outside to see and/or purchase some of the specimens they just learned about. Its truly a win-win for everyone. The registration for this workshop is separate from the rest of the conference. Go to http://fnps.org/conference/homelandscape to register. Thirteen field trips will be held on Thursday May 16th and 11 will be held on Sunday May 19th. Pete Johnson, field trip coordinator said, "We have put together a wonderful assortment of trips including: kayak and motorboat tours of the Okefenokee Swamp, rare plant searches, butterfly walks, guided tours of several local state parks, and even a hike through the Sawmill Slough on the UNF campus." He continued, "Many of the FNPS members from around the state come to the annual conferences specifically for these outings to get the feel for the local ecosystems. There will be trips to suit everyone from the novice to expert plant enthusiasts." The heart of the conference will take place on Friday and Saturday when we will hear from our 3 keynote speakers: Jim Draper, a Jacksonville artist, will present "Pascua de Florida and Planting in Harmony;' Roger Hammer, botanist and author, will talk about "La Florida" the conference theme; and Tom Hoctor will talk about the Florida Wildlife Corridors. In addition, there are 20+ educational sessions, book signings, and networking with fellow native plant enthusiasts. Native plant nurseries will also offer their beautiful natives for sale on Friday and Saturday. In addition, there are 3 social events. The Thursday evening welcome reception at UNF gives FNPS members a chance to catch up with old friends, meet new members, and network. "We wanted to have attendees really get a feel for Jacksonville," Barbara Jackson, conference chair, said, "so we scheduled the Friday night social on the St. Johns River on a riverboat with Lisa Rinam an, the St Johns Riverkeeper, and Saturday's social will be a low country boil on the beach at Hanna Park." Each year FNPS holds its conference in a different region of the state. This is the first time that it will be held in Jacksonville. Because of the "La Florida" theme, the conference is registered as one of the statewide "Viva Florida 500" events. The conference is being organized by the FNPS Ixia Chapter, which includes Duval, Nausau, and Clay Counties in NE Florida. Barbara Jackson said, "It takes a tremendous amount of work to put on a conference. Our committee has done an outstanding job pulling together millions of details. We're so excited to show off our city."

Builders went so far as to put an in-ground pool in and add ice water. Organizers also had a panel determine the top obstacle. The vote went to MICO Custom for their Zipper Ripper zipline. As for the racers, they thought the obstacles were awesome. Some of them said it was the hardest course many of them were saying it was their favorite (course), according to Chamber of Commerce President Bobby Caruthers. He said the fun included mud volleyball, mud bowling and live music for the spectator crowd. They also had cornhole games and a bronco bull.. Sumter County was really shown in a very positive light in this event, he said, adding that some runners came from as far away as Canada and New York. We wanted people to see what Sumter County was all about. Caruthers ran the course too and said the biggest surprise of the day was an approximately 30-foot slide. Once on top, there was a platform and only one way down the slide into a pond. When we hit the water, it was cold. He said the idea came up last year through one of the board members who had participated in a crawl somewhere else.We looked into it and saw people were going to them and having fun doing it, so we thought why not? According to Merritt, the first person arrived at about 4:30 a.m. on Saturday and the first racer at 6:30 a.m. The first wave of racers took off at 8 a.m. and groups went out every 30 minutes after that, until 1:30 p.m. The shortest time overall male went to John McQuillen of Lakeland with 34:47 seconds; the fastest time to a woman went to Sally Chappel with 43:90 seconds. Entry fees were based on early bird dates, heros (law enforcement, fire rescue, etc.) and team, but the fee for an individual averaged $55 per person and all the funds will be used to benefit the Chamber of Commerce. Spectators paid a $5 entry fee per person and could participate in the tug of war, mud volleyball and other challenges. Guests could even rent golf carts to ride the course for a better look. It was overwhelmingly successful, said Merritt. They were overwhelmed not only by the success of the event and by the businesses in our county coming together to make it happen, she said. It took an army to make this happen.She pointed out that participation in cowboy crawls have skyrocketed in the past three years, so theres a need for something unique about the course. Merritt believes thats exactly what Sumter had. Part of the success of the event and what it made different than any other, she said, is that 25 of Floridas top builders came together to make the obstacles. They worked for weeks designing their obstacles, she said, explaining they wanted to outdo one another. They designed the obstacles, provided materials, paid for their construction and then manned the site during the race, she said. Because theyre builders, they also built to code. Along with the challenge of the course, competitors got a chance to see herds of deer running and even some wild hogs as they made took their paces. T&D and the Yoder family were very instrumental in making the event happen, according to Merritt and Caruthers. Terry Yoder, who organized the building groups said, We have to think about our future here. We have to set an example for the surrounding counties. We need to help and support our chamber and local businesses and we need to set the bar. I though it was a great event, a great benefit for the Chamber. We all worked together and we did good. Merritt said the Chamber was invited to use the ranch by the Carter family the property is owned by Maurey L.

National Agriculture Day provides an important opportunity each year to say Thank You to Americas farmers, ranchers and growers. Its a time to recognize their productivity and to celebrate their abilities. Their work has real impacts for every American. Our abundant food supply means that we spend a lower portion of our income on food than the people of any other developed nation. Meanwhile, Americas agricultural exports support more than one million jobs here at home. As we celebrate their achievements, its important for all of us to understand the uncertainty faced by our farmers, ranchers and growers. In the past year, they have endured the worst drought in generations putting an extra strain on farmers, and raising input costs for livestock and dairy producers. The drought continues to impact many areas of the nation today. Unfortunately, Washington has only added to this uncertainty. Congress has failed to provide a comprehensive, multiyear Food, Farm and Jobs Bill. Additionally, as a result of the sequester, budget cuts will reduce funding across the board for services that USDA provides to farmers, ranchers and rural Americans. Even in the face of these challenges, our agriculture sector has achieved great things. Thanks to the willingness of our producers to innovate and embrace new methods, production has remained strong even in the face of drought and other challenges. Weve had the four strongest years for agricultural exports in history, with more than $478 billion in exports from 2009-2012. This year, American agriculture is projected to set another new export record. At USDA, were proud to support Americas farmers and ranchers. We dont just owe them our gratitude. We owe them dependable, modern service, which is even more important during these uncertain times. Thats why weve been working hard for years to make improvements, to streamline operations and to find budget efficiencies. In recent years, we have achieved more than $700 million in targeted, common-sense savings. These efforts put us in a better position to support agriculture and strengthen the economy in rural America. As we recognize and celebrate American agriculture this week, I want to give special recognition to the resilience and commitment of the greatest farmers and ranchers on earth. USDA will continue to do all we can to support their work.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 28, 2013, P AGE A17 So You Want to Be Have you ever wondered what it would be like to help people who have been sick or hurt. Well, that's what recreational therapists do. They help people who have gotten hurt in an accident or who have been sick and can't move around much get active again. In order to do this, recreational therapists use sports, games, arts and crafts and even music. All these things work to build patients' confidence and help them on the road to recovery. Recreational therapists build a program for the patient by looking at the doctor's chart, talking to the patient's doctor(s) and other staff, and also talking to the patient's family. They also listen to what the patient has to say. Then they help the patient with stretch exercises and even work with him/her to reduce stress. Some recreational therapists are self-employed, but most of them work in hospitals and nursing homes. Many recreational therapists work in hospital activity rooms. Sometimes, they work with a patient in a swimming pool or on a playing field. Most of the time, therapists work 40 hours a week, but sometimes they are required to work evenings, weekends and holidays. Hospitals usually require therapists to have a degree. After that, therapists have to pass a test to become certified by a national board. When You Wish What do you see when you look up at the night sky? If it's clear, you can probably see thousands of stars. But did you know there are thousands more that are not visible to the naked eye? The universe has billions of galaxies, and each galaxy has hundreds of billions of stars. The stars you can see when you look up at the sky are in our own galaxy, which is called the Milky Way. Along with the stars in each galaxy, there are clouds of dust and gas. Stars are actually big balls of gas, mostly hydrogen, that give off heat and light. They are born from the clouds of dust and gas. As more and more gas is pulled into a cloud, the cloud starts to spin. Atoms of gas bump into each other. As the bumping gets faster and faster, they create heat energy, which makes the cloud hotter and hotter. Once it gets so hot, the cloud starts to glow. The glowing cloud is known as a protostar. The protostar will continue to grow, and the bigger the star gets, the longer it will live.

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M ARCH 28, 2013, P AGE A19 Critter chatter Learning a foreign language with canine encouragement M y Aunt Betty impressed me years ago when she would speak Portuguese to her animals. I knew they understood when she would ask them for a kiss speaking Portuguese, and they would respond by coming up to her and licking her. Her animals understood English, Italian, and Portuguese! Recently, I have decided to learn another language. Because I am Italian decent, I considered studying the Italian language. However I realized that there is more Spanish spoken in America than Italian, so I made the decision to learn Spanish. I watched commercials on TV for Rosetta Stone, attesting to make learning any language easy. So I ordered a Rosetta Stone Spanish Language Course. I remembered back to my Aunt Betty, and wondered if I too could have bilingual dogs. Well, I am here to tell you that my critters seem to learn Spanish much quicker than I am learning. I try spending 1 hour on my lessons at least every other evening. I thought that while I am at home, I would use the words I was learning while talking to my perros (dogs). What a surprise to realize that my perros are understanding what I am saying quicker than I myself am learning the language. Animals are experts at reading our body language and moods. My dogs understand more of what I say to them than, I must admit, I understand of their language. And now, they understand Spanish too! Our animals are intelligent beings. They have learned to not only read our body language, but they have learned to manipulate us too. How can we resist those sweet faces, those pleading eyes looking up at us, asking us for a piece of that cookie we are enjoying? How can we resist their dance of joy when we pass by their leash? Of course we will take them out for a walk, even if it is only 40 degrees outside. And so we learn together, my dogs and me. On walks, I speak to them in Spanish of words that interest them, like trees (arbols) and grass (pesto). The Spanish language seems easier to learn when I can practice with my dogs. And who knows, someday I may impress someone with my bilingual dogs! Linda Graves Humane Society Hey y'all, What a beauitful Palm Sunday morning we had on Lake Panasoffkee. The rain fall was just enought to settle the dust. But will take what ever we can get. We are seeing lot's more movement of the bluegills and shell crackers, if this cool weather would just go away. Lot's of beds are waiting for the activity to begin. You will be wanting worms or cricket's. Maybe even a sandwich, cause once you get started in a bed of pan fish you will not want to move. This is a wonderful feeling for a fisherman or fisherwoman. You would be surpised at how many women love this sport also. I started at a very young age with my daddy, and the memories will be with me forever. As I'm writing this today, I'm leaving for Georgia to be with my daddy who is dying of that ugly cancer! My heart is heavy but my sprit is light because of the memories I have with him. My point to this is make memories with your kid's whereth you take them fishing, throwing a ball or what ever keeps them close to you. We here at Tracy's Point Fishing Lodge allow young kid's to fish off our dock where we fed and show the differnt fish of the lake. Well enjoy your week and Happy Easter to All. Hold all you love dear. Mo Anderson Don Cohoona and Jim Johnson from Inverness had what we call here in the south a mess of bass Duaine Whitehead did it again. He and his brother Larry are true fishermen. Hot, cold, wind nor rain keep's them away. Great Job. Some things fishy ... Miss Ambreana from Texas caught her 1st fish ever also in returned played us a few songs on her guitar she is very talented.

Mud, ice cold water and a ring of fire were the big draw last weekend as an estimate 2,500 people came out to watch or participate in Sumter Countys first ever Cowboy Crawl in Rutland. Set at Providence Ranch on S.R. 44, the event included 25 obstacles and an estimated 1,500 brave participants taking on the crawl challenge, according to Samantha Merritt of the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce. Slated as a fundraiser for the organization, and a day out for the community, those who attended experienced everything from live music and entertainment to the wild race through obstacles. Some of the other obstacles included Alligator Alley built by Chandlers Electric and included a trip over a pond. There were two choices by tightrope or a very long set of monkey bars. There was Snake Bite Alley with obstacles inside a screened in maze, Water Moccasin Way balance CRAZY FOR QUILTS Thursday, March 28, 2013Volume 127 Number 13Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES INSIDE: QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY Bushnell field narrows for new city manager When the Bushnell City Council meets next month, it will officially receive a recommendation from its committee established to find a new city manager. The Bushnell City Manager Selection Advisory Committee was created last month in response to notification from City Manager Vince Ruano that he will be retiring from his position at the end of July. Ruano has been the city manager for more than three decades. Bushnell Mayor Bil Spaude selected members for the committee from a variety of backgrounds in business, government and community. The committees recommendation for the position, which pays between $71,598 to $118,137 annually, will be presented when the City Council meets at 6 p.m. Monday, April 1, in Bushnell City Hall. The group, in a 7-to-1 vote, will be recommending that the board consider hiring Bushnell Utility Director Bruce Hickle for the position. Hickle has worked for the city for the past 10 years. While Hickle is the committees recommendation that does not mean that the board may not want to consider other applicants or initiate additional advertising for the position, Ruano said. We have a policy that allows us to advertise internally first, Ruano said. The committee met late last month and constructed a list of requirements for potential applicants. Those qualifications include: having a bachelors degree in public administration or related field with eight years of administrative experience, completion of a certified public manager or completion within three years, willing to live within the greater Bushnell area. Members of the committee are: Hal Lyons, Danny Lowery, Brad Sheppard, Sandee Howell, Felix Adams, Glen Frazier, Lori Maddox and Kay McCoy. The mayor also serves as a member.

In the meantime, a Wildwood police officer responding to the emergency call noticed a strong, pungent odor of what appeared to be spoiled food, according to the officers report. The appearance and odor of the residence, coupled with the lack of parental supervision that resulted in the canine bite incident, resulted in concern for the care and well being of the (three) juvenile occupants of the residence under the care and control of Layer Jr. The officer also reported that the kitchen contained numerous trash bags and a large amount of dishes that contained what appeared to be spoiled food. Fecal material was found on the floor and what appeared to be dried fecal material was at several locations on the carpets. A Department of Children and Families investigator was called in and determined that Layer had failed to provide the children with the care, supervision and services necessary to maintain the childrens physical and mental health the report states. ARREST continued from Page 1 Caller arrested for drugs An emergency call to the sheriffs office Monday night resulted in the callers arrest when deputies found chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine inside his home. Allen West, 45, Lake Panasoffkee, was arrested about 9:39 p.m. after deputies responding to an emergency call from West, found him in a wooded area next to his residence, according to a sheriffs office report. West said two men had forcibly entered his home by kicking in the front door. West fled from the home and hid in woods. He requested that deputies search his residence to determine if the intruders were still inside, the report states. During the search, deputies noticed a strong acidic odor coming from the master bedroom, the report states. They then found plastic soda bottles with tubing protruding from them in both the bedroom and bathroom. The bottles also contained a white pasty substance that was also on the counters. The items are commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine. West was then called into the residence where he was then questioned. Deputies also discovered some items had been placed in a portable cooler. West said he hid them to avoid getting into trouble. He said they were cooking it without giving any details. He then confessed that he had manufactured and smoked methamphetamine in his home as recently as two weeks ago. The Special Investigations Squad responded and executed a search warrant. Detectives discovered ammonium nitrate, sodium hydroxide. a corrosive acid, lithium strips and other items commonly used to produce methamphetamine. The lab was dismantled by the Special Investigations Squad. West was transported to the Sumter County Detention Center and charged with production of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance. Bond was set at $40,000.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH28, 2013 County takes honor While you may not agree with local government leaders operations or decisions, at least they are transparent, or, so says the Sunshine Review, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to government transparency. The organization recently released the winners of the fourth annual Sunny Awards and among the winners was Sumter County Board of County Commissioners (Sumter County). The award, which honors the most transparent government websites in the nation, went to 247 government entities with Florida receiving the most Sunny Awards. For the 2013 awards, editors at Sunshine Review analyzed more than 1,000 government websites and graded each on a 10-point transparency checklist, according to their press release. Editors looked at content available on government websites against what should be provided. They sought information on items such as budgets, meetings, lobbying, financial audits, contracts, academic performance, public records and taxes. The winners of the Sunny Award all received an Agrade or greater during the extensive grading process. In Florida, 25 awards were given out. Again, the award is for the countys website. We have to agree that the countys website is easy to navigate and does deserve kudos for being user friendly. County government, well were not so sure thats always so transparent. Humane successIt was a wonderful week of exciting events for the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County as they hosted their Spring Open House on Sat. 3/16. They welcomed the public to visit their new expanded dog and cat housing areas. Added fun to the day was possible thanks to the Sumter County Sheriffs K-9 unit with demonstrations. HS/SPCA volunteer Deputy David Clark and his colleagues presented various skills with their K-9 partners and how these teams bravely protect our community. A dog handling Q&A with local dog trainer and volunteer Lisa Stamper of Paws and Effect Pet Training was well attended by interested pet owners and Society volunteers. A delicious bake sale, plant sale and equine tack sale, and a unique Pony Plop Bingo game rounded out the days festivities! The Society looks forward to future annual Open House Spring Fling events! On behalf of the homeless animals in Sumter County, they also wish to thank everyone who made The Shred! Paper Shredding event its biggest success to date raising over $7200 on March 23rd. This event was possible thanks to the generosity and sponsorship from The Rainbow Family and Friends Club of The Villages, Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital, Hills Shred Express of Ocala, all local media coverage and our great community which showed up in droves with their shreddable documents, monetary donations and pet supplies to make a difference for animals in need. The HS/SPCA of Sumter County will be applying its contributions towards the Green Animal Shelter Fund. Also, the excitement of the upcoming Above Par for Animals Golf Ball Drop on April 13th was the buzz all day as people arrived for their $5 chance drawing tickets to win some grand prizes. Participants are looking forward to seeing their numbered golf balls drop from the ReMax Premier Realty hot air balloon at the George Nahas Chevrolet dealership. The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter has now entered its 31st year and has been steadily progressing in its community programs helping local animals and their people especially in this last year but it could not have been possible without the much appreciated support of its community of donors, volunteers, clubs, schools, churches, businesses and media. Our community is what makes the Humane Society/SPCA successful and we send our most sincere thanks to you all. With our gratitude, The Board of Directors The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. www.hsspca.org Residents ineligible to participate in ACA pre existing conditionsMy question is why none of the press published this very important loss of benefits to Florida Residents It has come to my attention and I know you will be interested in this tid bit. Actually it is more than a tid bit. Effective February 16, 2013, NO FLORIDA resident is eligible to participate in the pre existing conditions benefits afforded by the affordable care because The State of Florida turned down the 321 Million dollars that was allocated to the the state to establish their Pre Existing Condition program and elected not to do so. Evidently The 321 Million dollars has been re deposited in the PCIP The ACA Pre existing condition program,and will be used to fund the programs that were established by those states that established a program as part of the ACA. Joe Flynn The Villages With IRS, act now Florida residents who did not file a 2009 income tax return may have some good news coming to them but they have to act now or they may lose out. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is ready to return over $60 million to Florida taxpayers who did not file a tax return in 2009. However, claims for those funds must be made no later than April 15, 2013. According to the IRS, 62,700 Florida taxpayers are entitled to a refund with an estimated median of $577. Florida is tied with New York, and only California and Texas have more residents with unclaimed refunds. Many people may not have filed a return in 2009 because they had too little income to report. However, if their employer withheld taxes from their paychecks or other taxes were withheld, those people may be entitled to a refund of the withholdings. In these tough times, it simply doesnt make sense to leave money on the table. A refund could help you catch up on your utility bills or even put food on the table, said Caroline Ware the Director of the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic for Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida. But time is running out. Taxpayers need to act now. Free resources may be available for taxpayers who want to take advantage of this opportunity. Ware advised taxpayers to call 2-1-1 (a free referral service for essential health and human services) to be put in touch with a free tax preparer in their area. Taxpayers will also need to obtain a copy of their W-2 and have a Social Security card. Even if a taxpayer is not entitled to a refund, Ware also recommends filing a tax return to prevent identity theft. There are many benefits to filing a tax return, said Ware. You are less likely to be a victim of identify theft if you establish a tax account. Many Florida residents may also qualify for an Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) which, in 2009, was worth as much as $5,657. Refund checks may be held, however, for those who did not file returns in 2010 or 2011, or if there are any amounts owed to the IRS, a state tax agency or if there are unpaid debts such as child support or student loans.Source: http://www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroom/IRS-Has-$917-Million-forPeople-Who-Have-Not-Filed-a-2 009-Income-Tax-ReturnBEYOND SUMTER The Voice of Sumter County since 1881The editorial opinion expressed in the Sumter County Times is the opinion of the news staff of this newspaper.PublisherGerry Mulligan Regional Manager John Provost Editor Bob Reichman204 E.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. The Knit/Crochet Group of Lake Panasoffkee won Best In Show at the 2013 Sumter County Fair. The Knit/Crochet Group of Lake Panasoffkee won Best In Show at the 2013 Sumter County Fair. Su Gerheim and Elizabeth Kehler saw last years display and decided to present a project to their knit/crochet group for this years fair. The project was to crochet an afghan made of different colored shapes. They named their project the Josephs Coat Afghan. The project began in early December. Elizabeth Kehler, Joyce Shaw, Dawn Zagrocki, Florine Bishop, Theresa Nitz, Candy Reed, Michelle Arnold, and Su Gerheim began by making shapes; triangles, circles, squares, large and small, long and short rows of colored yarns. Using no pattern, they then positioned them on a table to form a giant afghan. After pinning them together they crocheted black yarn around all the shapes, even changing positions of some of the shapes as they went. The ladies said it was a challenging project getting the shapes to fit, but all enjoyed working on the project which took almost three months to complete. The group worked on it at the Panasoffkee Community Library where they meet every Tuesday at 10 a.m. Everyone was thrilled when they learned their Josephs Coat Afghan had won Best In Show. Local group takes Best In Show Sumter AVID-ly recruits students for programs Qualifying students in grades 7, 8, and 9 have been given another avenue to become college ready. The AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program was implemented in all Sumter County middle and high schools in the fall of 2012. AVID is a college readiness system offered as an academic elective class. Students accepted into the program strengthen their critical thinking skills by learning new strategies through lessons involving WICOR: Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading. AVID is a tremendous opportunity to better prepare many of our students for success in college and the workforce, said Rick Shirley, superintendent of Sumter district schools. An AVID student is in the academic middle, capable of completing a college preparatory path, with support. Often, these students are not reaching their full academic potential. The AVID program is designed to provide support so students are able to meet high expectations in rigorous, core, content area classes. Another key to the program is to create a school-wide culture of college readiness, in which all students, teachers, and parents take part. Recruitment for the 2013-14 school year has begun, and has expanded to include grades 6 and 10. As part of this process, a number of criteria are considered, including: students grades, state test scores, citizenship, attendance, determination, first in family to attend college, economically disadvantaged, and other special circumstances. All submitted applications will be reviewed by the AVID Site Team at each school and the decisions to interview and select students will depend upon the review process and availability. If you are interested in obtaining additional information about the AVID program for grades 6-10, please contact the district college readiness coordinator, or a school AVID coordinator listed: District Contact: Summer Bisignano (352)7932315 x 214; SSMS: Denise Shirley (352)793-2232, Applications due by April 11; SSHS: Anne Foote Collins (352)7933131, Applications due by April 12; WMHS: Mark Streit (352)748-1314, Applications due by April 12.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH28, 2013, PAGEA9 To advertise on this page call352-793-2161 The Florida Native Plant Society's (FNPS) 33rd annual conference will be held May 16th through May 19th at the University of North Florida's (UNF) University Center, 21000 Alumni Drive Jacksonville, FL 32224. The conference theme, "Celebrating La Florida; the Land of Flowers," is to commemorate Ponce deLeon's naming of this region when he landed here 500 years ago. FNPS is proud to be using a copy of Jacksonville artist Jim Draper's "Large Passion" (oil on canvas, 48" x 60") as our conference logo. The painting depicts one of the many beautiful native plants that greeted those early explorers. No wonder they thought this was the "Land of Flowers." The conference offers 24 field trips, 4 workshops, 20+ speakers, a 2-day native plant sale (open to the public), 3 evening social events, author signings, silent auction, raffles, and more. Online registration is open now and anyone may register. Go to www.fnps.org/conference to register for the conference, sign up for the field trips, social, or workshops. There will be a special stand-alone 2-hour Home Landscape Design Workshop on Saturday afternoon targeted toward homeowners who wish to learn about residential design and which native plants are best suited for their landscapes. This $25 workshop will be presented by two FNPS members who are landscape architects. Laurie Sheldon, one of the instructors said, "We will provide attendees with a basic understanding of the design process and local flora so that they can make informed decisions when it comes to selecting and placing plants in their landscapes. If they want to, they can go directly from the workshop to the native plant vendors outside to see and/or purchase some of the specimens they just learned about. Its truly a win-win for everyone. The registration for this workshop is separate from the rest of the conference. Go to http://fnps.org/conference/homelandscape to register. Thirteen field trips will be held on Thursday May 16th and 11 will be held on Sunday May 19th. Pete Johnson, field trip coordinator said, "We have put together a wonderful assortment of trips including: kayak and motorboat tours of the Okefenokee Swamp, rare plant searches, butterfly walks, guided tours of several local state parks, and even a hike through the Sawmill Slough on the UNF campus." He continued, "Many of the FNPS members from around the state come to the annual conferences specifically for these outings to get the feel for the local ecosystems. There will be trips to suit everyone from the novice to expert plant enthusiasts." The heart of the conference will take place on Friday and Saturday when we will hear from our 3 keynote speakers: Jim Draper, a Jacksonville artist, will present "Pascua de Florida and Planting in Harmony;' Roger Hammer, botanist and author, will talk about "La Florida" the conference theme; and Tom Hoctor will talk about the Florida Wildlife Corridors. In addition, there are 20+ educational sessions, book signings, and networking with fellow native plant enthusiasts. Native plant nurseries will also offer their beautiful natives for sale on Friday and Saturday. In addition, there are 3 social events. The Thursday evening welcome reception at UNF gives FNPS members a chance to catch up with old friends, meet new members, and network. "We wanted to have attendees really get a feel for Jacksonville," Barbara Jackson, conference chair, said, "so we scheduled the Friday night social on the St. Johns River on a riverboat with Lisa Rinaman, the St Johns Riverkeeper, and Saturday's social will be a low country boil on the beach at Hanna Park." Each year FNPS holds its conference in a different region of the state. This is the first time that it will be held in Jacksonville. Because of the "La Florida" theme, the conference is registered as one of the statewide "Viva Florida 500" events. The conference is being organized by the FNPS Ixia Chapter, which includes Duval, Nausau, and Clay Counties in NEFlorida. Barbara Jackson said, "It takes a tremendous amount of work to put on a conference. Our committee has done an outstanding job pulling together millions of details. We're so excited to show off our city."

Builders went so far as to put an in-ground pool in and add ice water. Organizers also had a panel determine the top obstacle. The vote went to MICO Custom for their Zipper Ripper zipline. As for the racers, they thought the obstacles were awesome. Some of them said it was the hardest course many of them were saying it was their favorite (course), according to Chamber of Commerce President Bobby Caruthers. He said the fun included mud volleyball, mud bowling and live music for the spectator crowd. They also had cornhole games and a bronco bull.. Sumter County was really shown in a very positive light in this event, he said, adding that some runners came from as far away as Canada and New York. We wanted people to see what Sumter County was all about. Caruthers ran the course too and said the biggest surprise of the day was an approximately 30-foot slide. Once on top, there was a platform and only one way down the slide into a pond. When we hit the water, it was cold. He said the idea came up last year through one of the board members who had participated in a crawl somewhere else.We looked into it and saw people were going to them and having fun doing it, so we thought why not? According to Merritt, the first person arrived at about 4:30 a.m. on Saturday and the first racer at 6:30 a.m. The first wave of racers took off at 8 a.m. and groups went out every 30 minutes after that, until 1:30 p.m. The shortest time overall male went to John McQuillen of Lakeland with 34:47 seconds; the fastest time to a woman went to Sally Chappel with 43:90 seconds. Entry fees were based on early bird dates, heros (law enforcement, fire rescue, etc.) and team, but the fee for an individual averaged $55 per person and all the funds will be used to benefit the Chamber of Commerce. Spectators paid a $5 entry fee per person and could participate in the tug of war, mud volleyball and other challenges. Guests could even rent golf carts to ride the course for a better look. It was overwhelmingly successful, said Merritt. They were overwhelmed not only by the success of the event and by the businesses in our county coming together to make it happen, she said. It took an army to make this happen.She pointed out that participation in cowboy crawls have skyrocketed in the past three years, so theres a need for something unique about the course. Merritt believes thats exactly what Sumter had. Part of the success of the event and what it made different than any other, she said, is that 25 of Floridas top builders came together to make the obstacles. They worked for weeks designing their obstacles, she said, explaining they wanted to outdo one another. They designed the obstacles, provided materials, paid for their construction and then manned the site during the race, she said. Because theyre builders, they also built to code. Along with the challenge of the course, competitors got a chance to see herds of deer running and even some wild hogs as they made took their paces. T&D and the Yoder family were very instrumental in making the event happen, according to Merritt and Caruthers. Terry Yoder, who organized the building groups said, We have to think about our future here. We have to set an example for the surrounding counties. We need to help and support our chamber and local businesses and we need to set the bar. I though it was a great event, a great benefit for the Chamber. We all worked together and we did good. Merritt said the Chamber was invited to use the ranch by the Carter family the property is owned by Maurey L.

National Agriculture Day provides an important opportunity each year to say Thank You to Americas farmers, ranchers and growers. Its a time to recognize their productivity and to celebrate their abilities. Their work has real impacts for every American. Our abundant food supply means that we spend a lower portion of our income on food than the people of any other developed nation. Meanwhile, Americas agricultural exports support more than one million jobs here at home. As we celebrate their achievements, its important for all of us to understand the uncertainty faced by our farmers, ranchers and growers. In the past year, they have endured the worst drought in generations putting an extra strain on farmers, and raising input costs for livestock and dairy producers. The drought continues to impact many areas of the nation today. Unfortunately, Washington has only added to this uncertainty. Congress has failed to provide a comprehensive, multiyear Food, Farm and Jobs Bill. Additionally, as a result of the sequester, budget cuts will reduce funding across the board for services that USDA provides to farmers, ranchers and rural Americans. Even in the face of these challenges, our agriculture sector has achieved great things. Thanks to the willingness of our producers to innovate and embrace new methods, production has remained strong even in the face of drought and other challenges. Weve had the four strongest years for agricultural exports in history, with more than $478 billion in exports from 2009-2012. This year, American agriculture is projected to set another new export record. At USDA, were proud to support Americas farmers and ranchers. We dont just owe them our gratitude. We owe them dependable, modern service, which is even more important during these uncertain times. Thats why weve been working hard for years to make improvements, to streamline operations and to find budget efficiencies. In recent years, we have achieved more than $700 million in targeted, common-sense savings. These efforts put us in a better position to support agriculture and strengthen the economy in rural America. As we recognize and celebrate American agriculture this week, I want to give special recognition to the resilience and commitment of the greatest farmers and ranchers on earth. USDA will continue to do all we can to support their work.USDA joins millions celebrating National Agriculture Day Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack Pictured above, Justin Revels and Wade Parker (left to right) talk while Marsha Bressette looks on during the annual sheep show at the Sumter County Fair..At the left, Riley Revels workes to heel his steer (a miniature dummy steer) with a lasso as the annual sheep show took place at the Sumter County Fair.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH28, 2013, PAGEA17 So You Want to BeHave you ever wondered what it would be like to help people who have been sick or hurt. Well, that's what recreational therapists do. They help people who have gotten hurt in an accident or who have been sick and can't move around much get active again. In order to do this, recreational therapists use sports, games, arts and crafts and even music. All these things work to build patients' confidence and help them on the road to recovery. Recreational therapists build a program for the patient by looking at the doctor's chart, talking to the patient's doctor(s) and other staff, and also talking to the patient's family. They also listen to what the patient has to say. Then they help the patient with stretch exercises and even work with him/her to reduce stress. Some recreational therapists are self-employed, but most of them work in hospitals and nursing homes. Many recreational therapists work in hospital activity rooms. Sometimes, they work with a patient in a swimming pool or on a playing field. Most of the time, therapists work 40 hours a week, but sometimes they are required to work evenings, weekends and holidays. Hospitals usually require therapists to have a degree. After that, therapists have to pass a test to become certified by a national board. When You WishWhat do you see when you look up at the night sky? If it's clear, you can probably see thousands of stars. But did you know there are thousands more that are not visible to the naked eye? The universe has billions of galaxies, and each galaxy has hundreds of billions of stars. The stars you can see when you look up at the sky are in our own galaxy, which is called the Milky Way. Along with the stars in each galaxy, there are clouds of dust and gas. Stars are actually big balls of gas, mostly hydrogen, that give off heat and light. They are born from the clouds of dust and gas. As more and more gas is pulled into a cloud, the cloud starts to spin. Atoms of gas bump into each other. As the bumping gets faster and faster, they create heat energy, which makes the cloud hotter and hotter. Once it gets so hot, the cloud starts to glow. The glowing cloud is known as a protostar. The protostar will continue to grow, and the bigger the star gets, the longer it will live.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH28, 2013, PAGEA19 Critter chatter Learning a foreign language with canine encouragement My Aunt Betty impressed me years ago when she would speak Portuguese to her animals. I knew they understood when she would ask them for a kiss speaking Portuguese, and they would respond by coming up to her and licking her. Her animals understood English, Italian, and Portuguese! Recently, I have decided to learn another language. Because I am Italian decent, I considered studying the Italian language. However I realized that there is more Spanish spoken in America than Italian, so I made the decision to learn Spanish. I watched commercials on TV for Rosetta Stone, attesting to make learning any language easy. So I ordered a Rosetta Stone Spanish Language Course. I remembered back to my Aunt Betty, and wondered if I too could have bilingual dogs. Well, I am here to tell you that my critters seem to learn Spanish much quicker than I am learning. I try spending 1 hour on my lessons at least every other evening. I thought that while I am at home, I would use the words I was learning while talking to my perros (dogs). What a surprise to realize that my perros are understanding what I am saying quicker than I myself am learning the language. Animals are experts at reading our body language and moods. My dogs understand more of what I say to them than, I must admit, I understand of their language. And now, they understand Spanish too! Our animals are intelligent beings. They have learned to not only read our body language, but they have learned to manipulate us too. How can we resist those sweet faces, those pleading eyes looking up at us, asking us for a piece of that cookie we are enjoying? How can we resist their dance of joy when we pass by their leash? Of course we will take them out for a walk, even if it is only 40 degrees outside. And so we learn together, my dogs and me. On walks, I speak to them in Spanish of words that interest them, like trees (arbols) and grass (pesto). The Spanish language seems easier to learn when I can practice with my dogs. And who knows, someday I may impress someone with my bilingual dogs! Linda Graves Humane Society Hey y'all, What a beauitful Palm Sunday morning we had on Lake Panasoffkee. The rain fall was just enought to settle the dust. But will take what ever we can get. We are seeing lot's more movement of the bluegills and shell crackers, if this cool weather would just go away. Lot's of beds are waiting for the activity to begin. You will be wanting worms or cricket's. Maybe even a sandwich, cause once you get started in a bed of pan fish you will not want to move. This is a wonderful feeling for a fisherman or fisherwoman. You would be surpised at how many women love this sport also. I started at a very young age with my daddy, and the memories will be with me forever. As I'm writing this today, I'm leaving for Georgia to be with my daddy who is dying of that ugly cancer! My heart is heavy but my sprit is light because of the memories I have with him. My point to this is make memories with your kid's whereth you take them fishing, throwing a ball or what ever keeps them close to you. We here at Tracy's Point Fishing Lodge allow young kid's to fish off our dock where we fed and show the differnt fish of the lake. Well enjoy your week and Happy Easter to All. Hold all you love dear. Mo Anderson Don Cohoona and Jim Johnson from Inverness had what we call here in the south a mess of bass Duaine Whitehead did it again. He and his brother Larry are true fishermen. Hot, cold, wind nor rain keep's them away. Great Job. Some things fishy ...
