BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesA white van was traveling southbound on County Road 471 last Wednesday, April 3, when the vehicle began to sway and then rolled over several times, according to a Sumter County Sheriffs Office report. It was about 2 p.m. and winds were gusting that day. The vehicle was carr ying a pallet of copy paper, along with other boxes, which may have caused the van to be top heavy, according to authorities. Paper was strewn across the hi ghway and traffic backed up. The driver was cited with careless driving.

The sheriffs office along with the Florida Sheriffs Association conducted the statewide initiative between March 4 and April 7, according to a sheriffs office press release. Protecting the youth of Sumter County has always been a priority and enforcement efforts will continue in this endeavor, said Sheriff Bill Farmer. The operation focused on issues of vital importance to the wellbeing of our youth, to include the use of alcohol, tobacco, and synthetic drugs by our underage youth, according to the press release. Alcohol is the most commonly abused drug among our youth. In 2010, more than 189,000 under the age of 21 visited emergency rooms across the United States with alcohol related issues. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyday more than 4,000 youth under the age of 18 smoke their first cigarette, and youth who use tobacco, are more likely to use alcohol and other drugs.

DRY continued from Page 1 B. Patel Parkinson D. Patel Alicea Anderson County to consider more privatization in building dept. Would it be in the countys best interest to further privatize county Building Department and Code Enforcement operations? Its one of the issues county commissioners will be considering during upcoming budget hearings next month. The issue of additional privatization was brought up by County Commissioner Doug Gilpin during a recent board meeting. Gilpin queried if the county would save money by having a private firm take over additional operations in the building and code enforcement departments. There are things we might be able to adjust and be able to do for better service at less cost to the citizens, Gilpin told the board. Weve had a real good history with privatization in Sumter County in appropriate areas, he said. We have had a privatization of building services to a large degree. I wonder if we couldnt look for more opportunities to do just that. He then requested County Manager Bradley Arnold to research the possibility with consent from other board members. Arnold said he would have the information compiled for discussion during the upcoming budget process scheduled to begin next month. The county currently contracts with two different private companies, PDCS and SBCCI, to provide some building inspection services to the county. Arnold said Friday that he is already proceeding with plans to expand those services provided by the companies to handle additional building inspection services and reviews.

You may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 Police say it was a case of cattle rustling, with a twist. Six cows being auctioned off at the Webster Livestock Auction last week looked very familiar to Daylon Raybon, the auctioneer. Turns out, there was a good reason for that. The cattle had been stolen from his Coleman ranch earlier that day and taken to the auction for sale, according to a sheriffs office report. Raybon told deputies that during the auction on April 2, I noticed my own cows coming through. But the auctioneers name wasnt connected to the cattle. The name that was displayed as the owner of the cattle was Richard A. Branch III, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. Just to make sure he wasnt making a mistake, Raybon contacted the other co-owners of the cattle who then went out to the Coleman property where the cattle were kept. They reported that 18 cows had been stolen. The cattle are valued at $18,000. Apparently word spread quickly about the stolen cattle because later that day, a Lake Panasoffkee man informed authorities that Branch had dropped off some cattle on his property, according to Caruthers. The victims went to that property and confirmed that the cows were the remainder of the missing cattle. That evening, deputies located the 32-year-old Branch at his Webster home and arrested him for grand theft of farm animals. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond at $5,000. Branch reportedly admitted to the theft but also said he believed that the animals had been abandoned. A charge of dealing in stolen property was added during the weekend, with bond set at $30,000.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL11, 2013 One more way to reduce crime rate The Sumter County Sheriffs Office is continuing its efforts to reduce criminal activity in Sumter County. This time, its going after clerks and store owners selling alcohol to minors. This most recent wave of arrests resulted in 19 suspects being charged with illegally selling alcohol to underage teens. The arrests were part of a statewide initiative to curb the sale of alcohol to minors. Sheriff Bill Farmer and his staffs drug sweeps and arrest processes have been dramatic and theyve been successful. With a drug sweep earlier this year that ended in the arrest of almost 100 people, its obvious that Farmer means business. That operation did more than just result in dozens of arrests it also sent a clear message that Sumter County is not an easy county for drug dealing. Farmer has always said that his department will not tolerate drug activity and hes living up to his word. This recent alcohol operation is no different. At the same time, residents are taking a stand and saying theyve had enough. They want the neighborhoods cleaned up from criminal activity such as illegal drug use and underage drinking to people trashing up the community, manufacturing drugs in residential areas and allowing dogs to run free. Many residents are coming together and want to know what they can do to help. After all, they have a big investment in their neighborhood theyve chosen to live there and invest there and they expect to live peacefully. They expect that their investment will remain safe in the property value. In the past year or so, the sheriffs office conducted similar bust of clerks and store owners selling alcohol to minors. It sparked a lot of complaints from those who were arrested and from members of their families. But the facts are very simple. It is illegal to sell alcohol to minors and in Sumter County, the sheriffs office is watchful of that situation and has no qualms about arresting those who are believed to be selling alcohol to minors. Helping to curb crime and improve neighborhoods isnt just the responsibility of the sheriffs office or local police departments, it takes community involvement too. Residents providing useful information about illegal activity plays a big part in a successful reduction in the crime rate and in healthier communities.

For more information regarding the event and to RSVP please call Claudia Morris, Alumni and Scholarship Coordinator at 365-3539 or email morrisc@lssc.edu. Claudia Morris Alumni/Scholarship CoordinatorAn election reform actually focused on Democracy Im an independent voter. There are over 2.8 million voters like me in Florida. We cant vote in Florida primary elections unless we join a major party. Florida and eighteen other states have closed primary elections where only members of a political party may vote. Even open primaries require you to choose a party ballot. National polls show that 40% of the electorate self identifies as independent or no party affiliation. Washington State and California have adopted the Top 2 Open Primary. Top 2 is voter focused not party focused. All candidates appear on a single ballot and all registered voters are allowed to participate and choose candidates regardless of party affiliation or no party affiliation. The Top 2 vote-getters in each race then compete in the general election. We have a playoff system in sports where teams compete to play in the championship game. In Indiana, the smallest high schools compete with the biggest high schools to play in the basketball championship game. Why not in politics? Why change our election system to Top 2? First, those 2.8 Million independent voters would have a voice in Florida primary elections. Top 2 would apply to congressional, state, and local races. Second, all voters, including those registered with major or minor parties, can choose the best candidate regardless of political party or no party affiliation. Let fresh ideas determine results, not party affiliation or extreme ideologies. Third, candidates would have to listen to views of all voters, not just their party base. Fourth, Top 2 will encourage potential candidates to run for office based on their principles and positions not those dictated by party affiliation. Fifth, Top 2 preserves party rights to hold caucuses, conventions or even primaries (party financed and run). Sixth, Top 2 can eliminate game playing like crossover voting that can happen in other primary types. In March 2008 the US Supreme Court, in a 7 2 decision, declared the Washington State Top 2 Open Primary constitutional overturning a prior Ninth Circuit Court decision. Justice Clarence Thomas, writing for the majority said, Overturning Washingtons Top 2 plan would have been an extraordinary and precipitous nullification of the will of the people. Critics contend that parties will lose influence in elections. Data from Washington State elections suggest otherwise. Over 80 percent of general elections featured races between Republicans and Democrats or unopposed Republicans or Democrats. Critics suggest that races could become single party races. Data from Washington State show that less than 9 percent of Top 2 races were single party competitions. Critics suggest that General Elections will feature fewer choices. The point of Top 2 is to increase choice by allowing all voters access to all candidates on a single primary ballot. With only 2 candidates in a general election, the voters are ensured that the winner is favored by a majority of voters. There is no question that running for office is tough. Top 2 Open Primaries wont solve all election problems BUT Top 2 gives all voters equal access to all candidates. Its time to think outside the box. Florida Independent Voting [FIVOrg.Com] is leading a state-wide effort to place a Top 2 Open Primary constitutional amendment on the 2014 ballot.

By Linda Graves Sumter DART Spring is in the air. Flowers are starting to bloom, and new leaves are sprouting on the trees. With the nicer weather, pets are out more often enjoying the fresh new scents of spring. Wildlife is also stirring, and our pets are more apt to come in contact with the local wildlife critters. It is important to be aware of the health risks that are prevalent this time of year, and what you can do to keep your pets healthy and safe. Keeping your pets vaccinations current is the best preventative against deadly viruses. The annual Low Cost Pet Vaccination Clinic will be offered by Dr. Porter of the Animal Care Center of Wildwood (located in the Wildwood Shopping Center) on April 20 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. A rabies vaccination for dogs and cats is only $9. For dogs: a distemper/parvo vaccination is $11 and a feline leukemia vaccination is $16.. There is no office visit charge, so you save more! Proceeds benefit the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. Not only are our domestic animals at risk of contracting rabies, but other deadly viruses flourish this time of year. Parvo and distemper are two very common viruses that are highly contagious and almost always fatal to pets that are not vaccinated. To assure your furry friend stays healthy, it is important to keep you pets vaccinations up to date. Florida State law requires that domestic animals have a current rabies vaccination by a licensed veterinarian. Prevention is easy and now affordable when you bring your pet to the upcoming Low Cost Pet Vaccination Clinic. The benefit to pet parents is a huge savings. The benefit for your pet is good health. Our furry family members depend on us to care for them. Their health and well being is our responsibility. At the affordable prices offered at the Low Cost Pet Vaccination Clinic, no dog or cat should have to suffer from preventable diseases. Mark the date on your calendar and keep your pet healthy.SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL11, 2013, PAGEA5 000EK5D 000EK5N STOREWIDE SAVINGS!

Please join us each Wednesday, 7 to 8 p.m., at Indian Hill Baptist Church.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL11, 2013, PAGEA7 Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood ProjectLake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Projects services are facilitated by Devereux Kids. http://www.devereuxkids.org About Us: Devereux Kids is a primary prevention and diversion program of the Devereux Foundation in Florida, established in 1999. Our mission is to engage communities, strengthen families and protect children. We do this by: Building a sense of community within neighborhoods, through community events, community education, and building social Connections; Providing support, information & referrals and emergency assistance to families; Facilitating Family Team Conferences that help families identify strengths and create plans for achieving goals that ensure child and family wellbeing; Offering workshops and training opportunities that empower individuals and organizations to advocate on behalf of children.Lake Panasoffkee Community Easter Festival: The Easter Bunny came to Lake Panasoffkee Saturday, March 30. Lake Panasoffkee Neighborhood Project, Lake Panasoffkee Moose and the Friends of the Lake Panasoffkee Library hosted the community Easter Festival. Children were able to visit with the Easter Bunny and have their photos taken with him. Children enjoyed the bounce house for hours; Karaoke was a hit for hours. Many children posed in their Easter bonnets to see if they could win the hearts of the best Easter bonnet judge. Sumter County Queens were guest at the Festival, singing the National anthem and many other songs. The queens also helped the children make spring time crafts. The Grand finale of the festival was the Easter egg hunt, where over one thousand candy filled eggs were raced after by excited children. Thank you to everyone who was a part of making the Easter Festival a success and thank you to everyone who came out to join in all the fun with us!Raising Your GrandchildrenWhats Happening No matter why or how they came to live with you, your grandchildren will benefit from being in your home. When children cannot be with their parents, living with a grandparent may provide: Fewer moves from place to place The comfort of familiar language, culture, and family history A chance to stay with siblings More contact with their parents, depending on the situation What You Might Be Seeing Despite these benefits, the children will face some unique challenges. They may feel insecure and unsure that you will take care of them. They may act our or challenge you. They will miss their parents. They may be anxious or depressed. They may seem young or act old for their ages. What You Can Do It will take time for your grandchildren to feel safe and secure in their new home with you. You can encourage these good feelings in a number of ways: Set up a daily routine of mealtimes, bedtimes, and other activities. Help your grandchildren feel at home by creating a space just for them. Talk to your grandchildren, and listen when they talk to you. Set up a few rules and explain your expectations. Then enforce the rules consistently. Reward positive behavior. When children make mistakes focus on teaching rather than punishing. Be as involved with their school as you can, and encourage your children to participate in school activities.

Their trainer Tessie Smith assigned their workout that night as a run from their home base at the Muscle Bound gym on Main Street to the caf, where they made a donation and then ran back to the gym. This weekend we had a cornhole tournament and we did a Clip for A Cure. The haircuts were done by Michelles Sheer Designs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. They had baked goods (which their clients donated), chance drawings for baskets and more, Hunt said, noting that they raised $900. She said they are still selling tickets for the basket drawings. The team works on the events, headed up by Hunt, Rachel Turner and their team captain Karen Holloway. While the sheriffs office is done with their major fundraisers for the year, they do have a couple of additional in-house events. Theyll be hosting a breakfast for staff, where employees can pay $5 for a buffet breakfast that includes everything from eggs and bacon to biscuits and gravy. Hunt said the menu also includes the famous hash brown casserole made by records clerk Cathy Connery. Thats probably why we make the money, Hunt said with a laugh, noting that its the first dish people are looking for at potlucks and other events. The results of the Saturday cornhole tournament included a cash prize, earned by first place winners Carl and Cindy Murphy. The couple donated the win back to the Relay team.

Despite competing during their Spring Break, the Raiders scored 31 points to finish second to Hernando High (47 points). Second place was okay for coach Ty Lawrence. We would have liked to have finished first, Lawrence said. That was always our goal. We had some kids who lifted well. We had some who didnt lift as well. Second is not bad. Macias, a junior, won the 119-pound class. He will lift at state. He had a 185-pound bench press and a 160-pound clean and jerk for a 345pound total. Lawrence said he thought Valentino Avant would also qualify. He was third with a 320pound total. He had a 175-pound bench and a 145-pound clean and jerk. Sophomore Kody Maddox was second in the 129-pound class. He had a 180-pound bench press and a 165-pound clean and jerk for a 345pound total. Anderson Fauk was second in the 154-pound class. He had a 445pound total. He had a 240 bench and a 205pound clean and jerk. Montel Presley was third in the heavyweight class. He had a bench press of 330 pounds and a clean and jerk of 255 pounds for a 585-pound total. Senior Chance Edwards had a 590-pound total for fourth place. The winner in each class automatically advances to the state. The second, third and fourth finishers are placed in a pool and may be able to advance. The qualifier was a tough meet for the Raiders. We are a young team, Lawrence said. One guy was a senior. It would be difficult because they are so young. Last year, we had three qualified and two lifted, Lawrence said. Alan Macias was seventh or eighth. B.K. Allen went to state. I think Valentino Avant will make it. He finished third. I think Cody Maddox at 129 has a shot to make it. Alan Macias and possibly a few other South Sumter High weightlifters will be lifting at the Class 1A State Weightlifting Meet April 20 in Kissimmee.

My name is Sharon, I work with Mo, she and I are very dear friends. Mo has asked if I would do this weeks report. We apologize for no report last week, Mo is still in Georgia spending prescious time with her daddy as he continues through his cancer battle. Our hearts and thoughts go out to you and your family Mo, come home soon, you are greatly missed. I would like to start this weeks report with a short goodbye to a beautiful Blue Heron bird, he is recorded on the surrounding properties of Tracys Point for over 40 some years and stories told of his presence go way beyond that. He has been MIA for over 6 weeks now, and I think I know why. We now have a new fishing buddy on the lake, which I named this week, Marlie Wayne. I named him after Mos daddy and her childhood nickname he called her ... many years of fun and joy with our new friend. To us, all of our birds tell us a lot of things, like when and where fishing is headed. I have so many photos I just cant send them all in. We had a great couple of weeks here on the lake what beautiful sunrises, white pelicans by the hundreds, mallard ducks gallore and yes the bass are picking up in quanity and size. Here are a few great pictures of some of the kids living on the lake. Pictured are Cole 10 and Colton.. Now its close to Aprils full moon on the 25th, which means it now on like donkey kong with the Shell cracker and Blue Gill so bring the kids, poles, a sandwich and lets go catching! Tracys Point Fishing Lodge hosted a fishing tournament Wednesday evening. It was great to have night time activity on the lake even cooler to have it in the middle of the week. Come on down next Wednesday evening... launch is at 6 p.m., weigh in is at 9 p.m. Here are this weeks winners: First Place: Gregg Hughes with a total weight just over 19 pounds. Second place: David and Sean with a total weight just over 14 pounds and third place Dan and Craig. Thanks guys welcome back you made my week! Thank you for your patience with this weeks report. I hope I got everybodies names and information correct and we hope you have a bass of a week. Sharon Parkinson Pictured is Cole, 10. Some things fishy ... David and Sean with a total weight just over 14 pounds. First Place: Gregg Hughes with a total weight just over 19 pounds. Pictured is Colton.
