In their memory: Victims of crimes Thursday, May 2, 2013Volume 127 Number 18Established 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 Who is she? Cops seek clues Its unlikely that its a professionally done tattoo. But its likely to provide substantial help in identifying the female murder victim found last week near Wildwood. Authorities are hoping that the tattoo on the womans left shoulder, coupled with a composite drawing prepared at the University of Florida and pieces of the womans clothing, will help lead them to her identify and eventually to the person responsible for her death. The tattoo of the word Jane is on the womans arm. Authorities suspect that it may have been created in a correctional institution or by an amateur. While authorities have been following up on clues about the womans identity, we really need the publics help to identify her, said sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. The womans badly decomposed body was discovered in woods near State Road 44 and Interstate 75 on the morning of April 22. Because the area is known to attract transients, local authorities have already traveled to Las Vegas and to Alabama to interview people who may have stayed near the site where the womans body was found. B OB R EICHMAN Editor County libraries could go private As he did several weeks ago, County Commissioner Doug Gilpin suggested last Tuesday that the county again look into the possibility of privatizing a county service this time, the county library system. Earlier, Gilpin had suggested County Administrator Bradley Arnold look into the possibility of privatizing more county building services. Within days, the deed had been done with more county work proposed to go to private companies for the upcoming fiscal year. The same thing happened following last Tuesday nights suggestion by Gilpin. The following day, Arnold had drafted a letter to library services personnel telling them that the county was proceeding to contract with a private company for library services and current employees would have to consider to prepare yourself to transition to the private provider, seek alternative employment within our organization or elsewhere, or separation by other means with the County. Arnolds letter also says the employees have until the end of the current budget year to decide what options to take. The current budget year ends on Sept. 30, 2013. According to his letter, Arnold is pursuing a contract with LSSI, a private library management company based in Orlando, to provide library services. The company currently provides services to Osceola County and Lake County had considered contracting with them, Arnold told the Times late last week. Arnold said that he does not expect to have a contract forged with LSSI until this summer for review by the County Commission. The County Commission will have to determine if it wants to approve the contract or maintain the current county-operated library services, he said. All told, about 40 positions would be impacted by the changeover. Arnold said he sent the letter to library perNew coach in town See NEW Page 1 2 See COUNTY Page 2 SPECIAL OLYMPICS TORCH RUN Photo by BRENDA LOCKLEARRunners and bicyclists took to the streets last Thursday for the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run that benefits Special Olympics. Participants made their journey from the Coleman Federal Prison south along U.S. 301 to the Bushnell City Park and then to the nearby SCARC center. See more photos and story, please see Page 10. Wildwood will kick-off a brand new football season this year, with a brand new coach. Veteran coach Jimbo Hale will move into the Wildwood head coach slot as Matthew LaBranche accepts a position in Marion County. This will be my 10th year on the sidelines, Hale said of his coaching experience. But he said hes been involved in the strength and conditioning of football players since 1998. I also played football as a youngster and then went on to play at both the high school and college level, so Ive been around the sport for well over 20 See MURDER Page 2 WILDWOOD Jimbo Hale B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer B OB R EICHMAN Editor Sharing survival It was awesome we exceeded our goals, said Sumter Relay for Life chairperson Shari Bare of last weekends event. Hundreds of people on dozens of teams, collecting thousands of dollars took part in the annual overnight event, starting Friday night at 6 p.m. The event included a survivors lap and dinner, food, fun, games and entertainment and lasted until noon on Saturday morning. Families, friends and strangers came together to fight in the battle against cancer. The community campout was the BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesThe Survivors Lap is a highlight of the opening ceremonies and followed by the Survivors Dinner.

P AGE A2SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 2, 2013 Its just another stone weve turned over to eliminate suspects, Caruthers said. Authorities still have not revealed how the woman was murdered. Heres the most recent description released about the woman: She is white, 25 to 55 years of age, 5-foot 2 to 5foot 9, 160 to 170 pounds, red or auburn hair with a red scrunchy. The victim had no teeth and may have worn dentures. She was wearing a light colored floral design shirt, size 3XL, gray colored Jersey sweatpants size 36-38, pink and grey colored glasses and white ladies tennis shoes size 10W. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Sumter County Sheriffs Office, Criminal Investigations Division at 569-1680 or call Crimeline (800-423-8477) where callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Authorities were scheduled to have a press conference Wednesday at the site where the body was found in hopes of generating additional leads. MURDER continued from Page 1 sonnel last week to prepare them for the possibility of having to consider their employment options if the County Commission decides that it wants to contract with the private provider. Arnold was expected to meet Wednesday with company representatives to consider a contract and then Wednesday evening with county library employees to answer questions and provide additional information. Of key consideration will be whether LSSI can provide the same or better service to the county at a lower cost, Arnold said. It is the latest county department to be considered for privatization. Along with building department operations, the county has privatized the probation department and the transit system with beneficial results, Arnold said. The move to privatization ends up saving the county money which can then be channeled to the countys priority operations: public safety, he said. It then provides additional funds to increase firefighting and law enforcement manpower and operations. The final decision about the countys library system rests with the County Commission during upcoming budget talks in the next few months. COUNTY continued from Page 1 The Sumter County Democratic Executive Committee invited a group of poll watchers and some campaign workers in the past election to an Appreciation Party in their honor on April 16 in Wildwood in commemoration of Volunteer Appreciation Month. Volunteers were presented with a letter of thanks from Sen. Bill Nelson and a Certificate of Appreciation from the committee. The presentations were made by Dr. Karen Judd, chair of DEC and Lisa Marshall, state committeewoman and aide to Senator Nelson.

The other dog didnt make it and had to be destroyed. Their owner, George Teddy Williams, 39, was arrested last week on two counts of animal cruelty and placed in the Sumter County Detention Center. Bond was set at $1,000. Williams was arrested after the two dogs were found locked inside his abandoned Bushnell home in February, according to a sheriffs office report. When investigators went to the home based on information that animals may have been abandoned inside, two dogs attempted to flee from the investigators when they opened the door. Both dogs were apprehended, one of them collapsed in the front yard from lack of muscle control, according to the report. Both of the dogs had been left inside the home for weeks without food and were suffering from neglect and appeared to be extremely underweight. Inside the home, animal feces and urine was throughout, according to the report. No dog food was present and a fivegallon jug of water was found tipped on its side but the dogs could not get to the water because of the long neck on the bottle. A python snake was also discovered in an aquarium in one of the bedrooms, the report states. When encountered by investigators, Williams told authorities that he had to abandon the home because he had lost his job and the electricity had been turned off, according to the report. He said the dogs hadnt eaten for weeks and that be believed one of them had been struck by a car, the report states. He admitted that the dogs needed medical attention but did not take them to a veterinarian because he was afraid he would get in trouble, the report states. Authorities took the dogs to a local veterinarian who determined that one of them needed to be destroyed because of its poor condition, according to Deb Barsell, county community services manager. The other dog, a mixed breed female, remains at animal control. She is still in our custody and under our protection, Barsell said. But she is doing great. She is one pound away from her ideal weight now. She had weighed half that. The dog is not available for adoption at this time. George Teddy Williams, 39, was arrested last week on two counts of animal cruelty and placed in the Sumter County Detention Center. Bond was set at $1,000.

P AGE A4SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 2, 2013 Library issue is moving way too fast I ts not merely a question of saving money. When it comes to Sumter Countys public library system, there are plenty of community ties and connections that must be considered and respected. And when the County Commission goes messing with the idea of converting the libraries from a county-run operation to letting a private company operate the countys library system, there are bound to be plenty of hostile folks to contend with and rightly so. Sumter Countys libraries, for the most part, have been cradled by their communities. Volunteers have nurtured and supported these facilities through years. No matter what their names: Friends of the Library or Library Advisory Board these community volunteers have been the backbones of local libraries. In some cases libraries were built by residents in local communities people who went door-to-door to collect money and gathered and purchased books to create the original libraries. These libraries are viewed as their libraries, and rightly so. They have helped to keep them afloat through many difficult financial times. Volunteers have done everything from organizing bake sales to promoting book sales. Last week, County Commissioner Doug Gilpin suggested that the county look into seeing if it would be wise to privatize the county library system. He won support for his suggestion by his fellow commissioners. The following day, County Administrator Bradley Arnold had a letter out to all library staff telling them to be prepared for the possibility of being privatized, including the possibility of being without a job if the County Commission goes to a privatized system before the end of the year. This all feels like it is moving way too fast and with no community comment or concern. As Arnold prepares to meet with company representatives that may want to operate the county library system, library employees and all those volunteers who have helped their local libraries have their heads spinning in frustration and wonderment. This concept is moving at the speed of light while library supporters are shaking their heads in disbelief. Support neededThe Florida State Legislature is considering critical legislation that will crack down on animal crueltybut time is running out to pass these key measures. We need your help! H.B. 851/S.B. 504 specifies that a person who commits multiple acts of animal cruelty may be charged with separate offenses for each cruel act, making it easier to fairly punish animal abusers. H.B. 851/S.B. 504 makes animal fighting offenses punishable under Floridas anti-racketeering law, which helps law enforcement crack down on this brutal blood sport. H.B. 851/S.B. 650 bans the artificial coloring of rabbits and chicks and prohibits the sale of these baby animals. Selling animals when they are artificially colored or very young encourages people to make impulsive purchases, especially around Easter. Animals are not disposable toyswe must prevent their suffering. Floridas legislative session is wrapping up soon. Help us pass this humane legislation before its too late! What You Can Do Visit the ASPCA. org: Advocacy Center on line to find out how you can support these critical bills. Thank you for speaking up for animals, Florida! ASPCAHelping childrenThere are about 1,700 children in the Marion, Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Citrus counties, who have been removed from their homes for alleged abuse, abandonment or neglect, who are now part of a dependency court proceeding. These children need someone who will speak up for them. A GAL is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a volunteer supervisor and program attorney. He/she becomes familiar with the child and the childs case and makes recommendations to the court to help ensure a safe, caring, stable and permanent environment for that child. Am I eligible to be a GAL? Persons 21 years of age and older, who successfully complete the pre-service training program, have a clean criminal background check and are able to be objective are eligible. How much time must I commit as a Volunteer Guardian ad Litem? A GAL must successfully complete 30 hours of pre-service training. On average, volunteers spend 5-10 hours a month on a case. Most cases last 10 months. How do I get started? Call Lynn Sennett at (352) 2745231 or e-mail her at Lynn.Sennett@gal.fl.gov. For more information and an application, visit our website at www.guardianadlitem.org. The next training begins Monday, June 3, at the Oxford Assembly of God, 12114 N. US Highway 301, Oxford.

Guardian ad Litem Postponement of Community Development Workshop We at Parsons Circle Community Outreach, Inc. are truly sorry to inform you that we have had to postpone our Community Development Workshop with our presenter, Jack Levine of 4Generations Institute, entitled Our Four Generations: Ready or Not, Here We Are! On behalf of Parsons Circle and 4Generations Institute, I apologize for the postponement, especially to those of you who have already made travel and accommodation plans. Unfortunately, due to the fact that many of our partners have some unavoidable circumstances and travel conflicts with Mothers Day weekend, the Community Workshop has been postponed to a yet to be determined date in the Fall. We look forward to keeping in touch and intend to bring this valuable discussion to you about the challenges and opportunities of our multi-generational families and communities. Special emphasis will be given to the ways we can balance our home life and work life to ensure both personal achievement and economic productivity. We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and we hope that you can join us this Fall.

What are the different types of skin cancer? Melanoma is the most deadly of all skin cancers (It causes more than 75 percent of skin cancer deaths).It is typically a dark mole that often contains various shades of brown or black, typically irregular in shape and with uneven borders. Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is the most frequently occurring skin cancer. It tends to keep growing if untreated, and in rare cases can start to spread. The signs to look for are an open sore, a shiny bump, a reddish or irritated patch or a white, yellow or waxy scar-like area. Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) are mostly easily treated, but if not removed, some can metastasize, spreading to nearly lymph nodes, which drain the area where the cancer is located: from the lymph nodes, the cancerous cells can spread to distant tissues and organs, becoming life threatening. It is often pink and scaly, a wart-like growth/open sore with irregular borders, that crusts and occasionally bleeds, persisting for weeks. Actinic Keratoses (AK) are pre-cancers that can turn into SCC if left untreated. They are often an early stage in the development of skin cancer. They are small, crusty or scaly patch, often red, or a combination of colors. It sometimes itches, is inflamed and occasionally bleeds. Early detection of skin cancer is key! Cure rates are high, and recurrence rates are low for cancers that are caught and treated early. It is important to check for changes in size, shape and color of pigmented areas. The Skin Cancer foundation highly recommends an annual full-body skin exam by adermatologist. *Facts provided by the Skin Cancer Foundation and American Academy of Dermatology.DISCLAIMER: The information provided is intended solely for educational purposes.

Looking for a sportsmans bargain on a three-day hunt, or a new gun? Or are you just a believer in the efforts of the Disabled Sportsman of Central Florida? If so, you might want to attend their annual banquet, set to begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 11. The gathering is at the Sumter County Fairgrounds and the event is a fundraiser for the organization, which focuses on getting Central Florida residents with disabilities into the great outdoors. Bill Blackwelder, president of the organization, said its their business to get people with disabilities out and moving. Their website notes that they are a non-profit, faith-based organization. Their goal is to provide opportunities such as hunting, fishing and airboat rides. In the past year, the organization has hosted a Range Day on the first Saturday of each month. Now termed a Family Day, its for all ages and the entire family and held at 2716 CR 321 in Bushnell. Its also for residents with or without disabilities, Blackwelder said, noting they had an estimated 40 people at their last gathering. The event included range practice, a potluck lunch and a short meeting. The organization has coordinated experiences at Windy Acres Rodeo, a bow and trap hunt, a muzzleloader hunt, a modern gun hunt, airboat rides and a turkey hunt. Still on this years agenda is a fishing trip to Cross City. There are no activities slated for the summer, noting July and August are simply too hot. Blackwelder said they formed the organization about a year ago to make sure funds stay in the Central Florida area and serve local residents. The banquet seating is as follows: singles ($50), couples ($80), children ($20) and Sponsors ($200) and Partners ($500). Partners get eight meal tickets, a sponsor membership, partner recognition from the floor, preferred seating, one partner gift, one entry into the gun drawing and general raffle tickets. The banquet begins doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner is served at 7 p.m. The live auction begins at 8 p.m. and the location is at 7620 SR 471 Bushnell.

RELAY continued from Page 1 culmination of months of fundraising from yard and bake sales to breakfasts and haircuts. The funds are turned over to the American Cancer Society for research and to fill needs of patients that range from wigs and prosthetics to counseling and transportation. If you know a cancer survivor, chances are, you know someone who has benefited from the research money thats been raised over the years, around the world. As for this years Relay for Life, Our goal was $50,000 at the end of the relay, we had $53,000. And we actually have until the end of July to collect more money, said Bare. But even they didnt raise another dime, shes thrilled with where they are. The blood bank was also on site and had a goal of 15 pints of blood and got 25. Bare was surprised when she learned campsite number 31, Friends for Hope won the campsite contest it was her team. But the team was hosting a game of Wheel of Fortune that included a long line of customers. So many, they actually had to turn people away. The game included cancer-related words, she said. Retired Sumter County Tax Collector Tom Swain served as honorary chair and Continental Country Club served as one of the main sponsors, delivering a check for $5,400 from their golf tournament. Bare praised her committee of 14 people that made things happen. We had an awesome committee. They have just rocked and made my job so easy, she said.

The Torch Run drew nearly 70 participant s on bikes and foot. The funds raised through the event will be used for Special Olympics, as Sumter County athletes compete in the state challenges We had a very successful torch run this year, said sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. We had participants from numerous law enforcement agencies. This years event, on Thursday, April 25, was also opened up to the public and had several people participate from outside law enforcement. There were about 70 people either on bikes or on foot this year. Caruthers said the event raised an estimated $1,700 in the sale of T-shirts participants buy the shirts to ride and all the funds are sent on to Special Olympics. Or, they can simply buy the shirt to show their support while the run through Sumter is over, shirts are still available and still being sold, he said. In addition, they also collected about $1,500 in tips from their several Tip-A-Cop days at various restaurants around the county. Thats a pretty good year, he said. I think people were very good to Special Olympics this year. Caruthers said the money will be used to put on the games, and help pay for lodging, uniforms and other needs for the Special Olympics athletes. Theres a lot that goes into the state games. They begin in January with a visit to the stores of their biggest sponsor, Publix, he said. They follow up with efforts to sell the merchandise, from shirts to caps and then on the month prior to the run, they work the Tip-A-Cop events. Their efforts are complete for the year with the Torch Run. The final run will end in the Disney World sports complex, with opening ceremonies for the games on Friday, May 17. Ive been affiliated with Special Olympics since I was in high school, Caruthers said, noting that the Interact group he belonged to with help put on the county games. Through that, he saw the good it did for these young athletes. So it just seemed natural for him to take on leading the Torch Run efforts. When you get to the end and you see all those athletes smiling and clapping, right there, you know it was worth it.

O ne of my favorite authors is Jodi Picoult. She writes love stories mixed with some controversial issue stem cell research, faith healing, euthanasia, teen suicide usually with a lengthy courtroom drama at the end. Her books are impeccably researched. When she tackles an issue, she knows her stuff. In her latest book, The Storyteller, she writes about the Holocaust. Picoult begins with a friendship between a young woman and a 95year-old man who meet at a grief support group. Josef has lost his wife and Sage has lost her mother. As the story unfolds and they become friends, Josef asks Sage to help him die. He chooses her because she is Jewish and he, a German, had been an SS officer at Auschwitz, personally having killed countless Jewish prisoners. He wants forgiveness from her on behalf of those he killed. A huge portion of the book is told by Minka, Sages grandmother, an Auschwitz survivor. She tells her memories of life in Poland as the daughter of the town baker and of the incremental way the Nazis encroached on their town and stripped the people of their humanity. Minka tells of the fear and the waiting and of finally being rounded up and put on the train, of being torn from her father, of hearing about his death, her mothers death, her sisters death everyone in her family brutally murdered. Minka tells of the hunger and the desperation, the cold and the callousness of her captors. She also tells of the bits of hope, like meeting up with her best friend and being assigned to the same barracks where they cling to each other and tell stories of the future when theyll be free. In her research, Picoult used the true stories of survivors, capturing their vivid, detailed memories, which she incorporated in her book. Hers is a breathtaking description of human cruelty. At one point, Minka is reassigned to an office job where she works for a kind boss, kindness being a relative term. But she is able to be warm while she works, and her boss leaves his leftover lunch for her to steal. He also gives Minka a journal for her to write in. She is a storyteller, and at night she writes her story of a cannibalistic monster that terrorizes a village. She reads it to the women in the barracks every night and to her boss every day. What happens next? the women and Minkas boss ask. Minkas story is the one hope that keeps everyone going one more day. Eventually the Allies come and liberate the prisoners in the death camps, including Auschwitz, and Minka finds her way to the U.S. where she never speaks about her Holocaust experiences. I wont spoil what happens to Minka or Josef, in case you want to read the book. But I will tell you that theres an attempt at atonement, a plea for forgiveness and an unanswered question is it too late? Thats our question, too. Is it ever too late for God to forgive? Is a deathbed confession ever too little, too late? But the real question is whether Gods grace is limited. Are heinous, yet repentant, criminals excluded? Two thieves were crucified on either side of Jesus. One died hurling insults and mocking Jesus, but the other one repented. Jesus told him, Today, you will be with me in paradise. A deathbed confession not too little, not too late. But what about a German SS officer who coldheartedly killed people he thought of as vermin and not human? What about Jeffrey Dahmer? Ive heard from several sources that he came to faith in Christ while he was in prison for his serial killing and cannibalism. Surely Gods grace cant cover him! Not after all he has done. Can it? Does it? If the answer is no, then its not grace. If grace isnt for everyone and anyone who asks, then its not for you or for me either. True grace is disturbing. But thats what makes it so amazing.

These students had to compete with over 100 fellow fifth graders by taking tests on science vocabulary and scientific concepts. They were the winners in each of their classes and will be going to the Sumter Environmental Education Center (SEEC) at the end of the school year to compete in a fun Science competition against other 5th graders from BES! years total, as both a coach and player. I coach because Im called to. I coach to change lives. I coach to change the world. There are snares and traps lying around every corner in life, just waiting for any unwary, gullible, or unsuspecting young man to step into them. I want to have a hand in winning this nation back and I feel that it all starts with our young men. I want these men to learn the core values that build character, which will help them become an outstanding husband, daddy, and community leader later in life. Ultimately, I coach to leave behind a legacy that far outlasts me! I think the game is important because there are situations that we encounter in football that directly transfer to everyday life. Learning to finish the drill in football means to give all you have until that final whistle blows, regardless of how hard it is or how much it hurts. Hale said finishing the drill transfers to everyday life. He began his coaching career when his high school coach, Jon Ward had just become head coach here. Hale attended their spring practice and After practice, he asked me if I was interested in helping them out and even though I had never coached before, I jumped on the opportunity. The rest is history. In addition to getting my first taste of coaching, Jackson County is also where I learned that working in the weight room and training football players, as well as other athletes, was an absolute passion of mine, he said Hes grateful to Ward for giving me a shot even though I had zero experience. He also credits Coach Chad Perry and Coach Phil Jones. He worked under Perry at Coosa High School and said Jones, who coaches at Shorter University, is his mentor. He also credits his wife of 14 years, Jessica, and their four children. He said they are my inspiration to become the best coach I can be. I would be nothing without them! From the team, he said, I want our players striving to display a positive attitude and put forth a positive effort daily, in all aspects of life. The reason I say this is because our attitude and effort are absolutely controllable, regardless of current circumstances or unexpected trials. As he steps into the head coach role in Wildwood, Hale says, I must lead by example period. If I expect one thing out of our players, but dont expect it out of myself, it becomes a functional integrity issue. If I expect my boys to display a positive attitude and put forth positive effort, I had better be doing the same each day. I believe the players deserve a coach who is striving to be the best he can be and nothing less. They will be out there working their tails off in the hot Florida heat nearly every day and I will be asking for their very best. So, in return, they will have my very best as well. They can expect me to be in the weight room training my own body, teaching my classes with integrity and honor, making good choices both on and off the field and striving to live by the core values we teach them. True leaders lead from the front and must be willing to do, themselves, whatever they ask of the people they are leading. That is what I expect of myself. From the team, I expect us to work hard in everything we do and to be relentless in our pursuit of winning each day. This all starts with attitude. Hale said they will pound the rock, explaining that the saying comes from the story of an ancient stone cutter. The stone cutter, taking his hammer and chisel, begins pounding away at a stone. The first hit doesnt even put a dent in the rock. Neither does the second or the third. As a matter of fact, he hits that stone 100 times and nothing happens. However, on that 101st hit, the rock shatters. The stone cutter knows, though, that it wasnt that 101st hit that shattered the rock. Instead, he knows it was the 100 seemingly worthless shots before that that wore the rock down. The moral of the story is that every rep in the weight room counts, every play on the field counts, every practice counts, every question on a test counts and every good choice counts, because we never know when that rock will shatter! Were going to pound the rock, he said. As for Wildwood strengths, Hale said, Right now, our biggest strength is that we have a unified coaching staff that has the same philosophy and mindset in regard to coaching football, which is rare in todays age. We all believe in character building above all else. He plans to begin summer workouts and conditioning with the Wildcats team in June. The training will include strength training talk and core values discussion and field conditioning. It is imperative that we are in top condition because many of our players will have to play both ways. During each workout, we will spend about 10 minutes each day talking about core values aand how they apply to our lives. As coaches, we will be scouting our upcoming opponents and getting ready for that first game of the season! We look forward to Pounding the Rock here at Wildwood! Wildwood Wildcats get a new coach ...

S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY M AY 2, 2013, P AGE A13 Home lost, puppies saved Emergency workers provided oxygen through special pet oxygen masks carried on their trucks; with this care being continued by the on-scene Rural Metro ambulance crew. Shown is one of the puppies saves from underneath the burning house. On Wednesday morning, April 24, Sumter County Fire & EMS responded to a report of a residential structure fire on S.E. 1st Dr. in Bushnell. Arriving within six minutes of the call, crews were met with heavy fire showing from the center of the structure, with flames moving quickly through the roof. After determining that all of the occupants were safely out of the structure, crews were able to quickly contain, and then extinguish the fire. The five residents, who were sleeping in the home at the time the fire was discovered, are considered extremely fortunate to have escaped, as they did not have a working smoke detector in the home. Sumter County Fire & EMS Chief Leland Greek said that When a fire of this nature occurs, while the family is sleeping, the outcome is often much different, resulting in fatalities. A family member who happened to be sleeping in the living room was fortunate enough to be awakened by the sounds of the fire, alerting the rest of the residents to escape. After extinguishing the bulk of the fire, and during a secondary conversation with the residents, it was noted that there was a litter of puppies somewhere under the house. However, due to the amount of fire damage, some effecting the floor, together with the heavy smoke that had emitted from under the doublewide home, there wasnt much hope for their survival. This new information prompted several of the Fire & EMS crew members to initiate a search under the home, hoping there was just a chance that the puppies may have survived. Lt. Casey Stanberry located the first puppy, which was slow to respond, and appeared to be in poor condition. However, he and fellow Firefighter/Paramedic Brian Hoogewind provided oxygen through special pet oxygen masks carried on their trucks; with this care being continued by the on-scene Rural Metro ambulance crew. Encouraged with their find, Firefighter/EMT Joe Marchese crawled under another section of the home, and was able to locate the four remaining puppies, which appeared in good health. Upon returning all five dogs to the owners, they indicated that sadly, due to losing everything in the fire, they would no longer be able to care for dogs, and they would need to go to Animal Services. With that information, and having a new sense of ownership, three Sumter County Fire& EMS crew members asked the owner if they could each adopt one of the dogs. Lt. Stanberry, FF/EMT Marchese, and FF/EMT Jesse Maslan are now providing new loving homes to three of their saves. Sumter County Animal Services took custody of the two remaining puppies, with hopes that they too may be able to find loving homes. If interested, contact Sumter County Animal Services at 352-569-1960. The cause of the morning blaze was determined to be accidental, and electrical in nature. This doublewide mobile home in Bushnell was destroyed by fire last week but the residents were safe. So was the litter of puppies emergency workers removed from underneath the home. Nursery destroyed by fire ... At 2:38 p.m., Saturday, April 27, Sumter County Fire & EMS crews were dispatched to a structure fire at 665 N.US 301 in Sumterv ille. Arriving six minutes after the initial dispatch, the first arriving fire crew found heavy smoke and flames emitting from several connected stru ctures at the Shady Brook Nursery. Crews worked quickly to contain the fire from spreading to a nearby residence, working around downed power lines and e xploding canisters. With no fire hydrants in the immediate area, crews set up a portable water tank, and used tank trucks to shuttle water from the closest hydrant a mile away. Due to the buildings proximity to the road, the water supply operation had to be conducted on the roadway, causing U.S. H wy 301 to be closed for over two hours, with Sumter County Sheriffs Office detouring traffic around the area. Three engines, two water tenders and sev eral command and support vehicles responded with a total of 14 personnel. Due to the extent of the fire upon the arrival of fire crews, the complex was a total loss. Cause of the fire was deemed accidental, starting from a clothes dryer.

The weather was magnificent and the lunch was something to brag about. Thanks to Steve and friends. I got to tell you a little about this kind of tournament, its like an old fashion reunion, folks sitting around, sipping on sweet tea and enjoying each others company while the boats are out. Then around 12:45 sounds like the race of a life time. Here they come with bass in hand to weight in, listening for the numbers to be called out. Seeing the excitement and the smiles does a heart good. After the weight-in theres a Blessing said for lunch. This is the fellowship part I enjoy, not only for a wonderful meal, but the gathering itself. See what you dont realize, Gods presence was here, and it just dont get any better that that. Now the results for this day. First place went to Allen Whitt and Robbie Peralta They total weight was 14.05 Robbie had Big Bass weight was 5.07.

Since then, including this years winners, SECO has awarded 221 scholarships to deserving high school seniors. Duncan said, With todays high cost of a college education, every dollar that can be dedicated to the pursuit of higher education is important. At SECO were very proud of the young people in our service territory and we hope that, following college, some of them will bring their new found skills and knowledge back to our area. We wish our scholars well as they pursue their academic endeavors. This year 155 qualified applicants from throughout SECOs service territory were evaluated based on their scholastic achievements, school and community service activities, and financial need. The SECO scholars for 2013 from Sumter County are: Jessica Casteel, Villages Charter School; Jessica Lemay and David Crespo, both of South Sumter High School. These outstanding seniors were selected by SECOs Scholarship Committee of independent educators from the application materials submitted by each student. Scholarship recipients and their families will be honored at a special reception at SECOs headquarters building in Sumterville at 4 p.m. on May 20. SECO provides scholarships Volunteering at Hospice House after retiring Paula Knight knew exactly what she was going to do when she retired. The south Sumter County resident and former registered nurse wanted to volunteer for Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care because two family members had died in hospice care. I feel every person has a moral responsibility to give back, especially because we truly are blessed here in the United States, says Knight. She was one of the first volunteers at the Lane Purcell Hospice House when it opened in 2009 but her duties are nothing like her nursing career. I work as a cook. I answer the phones and Im a greeter, says Knight who has lived and worked in Sumter County for 47 years. I love the work! Knight especially enjoys how her volunteering at the House fits her retirement schedule. Im as busy as I want to be. They are very accommodating. Knight likes to find out what patients and their families like to eat so she can prepare it for them. Little things make a big difference so I find out whether theyre a pork person or a biscuit and jelly person, says Knight. Its not just the patients were caring for but the families, too. They are so worried and we can ease their minds. Because shes been in the community for so long, many of the patients and family who come to the Lane Purcell Hospice House know Paula. It makes them feel more comfortable having a compassionate and familiar face to help them through this journey, said Kim Carter, Cornerstone Hospice Volunteer specialist. Cornerstone Hospice seeks more volunteers like Knight and has scheduled a hospice volunteer training class in June:Being a Cornerstone Hospice volunteer requires 16 hours of specialized training that covers not only medical privacy policy but also addresses how to deal with a patient approaching end of life, says Carter. The next Sumter County training is scheduled for Wednesday, June 5 and Wednesday, June 12, each day from 8:30 a.m. 4 p.m. The classes will be held at the Lane Purcell Annex, adjacent to the Hospice House, 2452 CR 526E in Sumterville. Volunteer activities may include transporting patients to doctors appointments, giving caretakers a break, cutting a hospice patients hair, helping to take care of a patients pets or even sewing comfort items for patients and their families. Sumter County community members interested in volunteering at the Lane Purcell Hospice House or who would like to learn more about many other volunteer opportunities can visit the Cornerstone Hospice website or call 1-888728-6234.

Why does so little rock show at Floridas surface? What is deep down under the Florida platform? Eugene Bouley, a retired Geology Professor and board member of the Palatlakaha Environmental and Agricultural Reserve (PEAR Park) in Leesburg, will discuss Floridas unique geology Thursday, May 9th at 2:30 p.m. at The Villages Public Library at Pinellas Plaza. This program is part of our VIVA 500 celebration that commemorates 500 years of Floridas history and cultural diversity. Program is free of charge but registration is required. For more information or to register by phone, call (352) 689-4588. Florida sand is topic of discussion Effective May 6, Tuesday and Thursday shuttle services will be suspended due to a recent analysis of shuttle ridership. Debbie Nelson, Transit Contract Manager stated, In light of recent increases in transportation requiring highest priority, specifically medical appointments and employment, it became necessary to look at services with no dedicated funding source. Tuesdays and Thursdays were found to be used less frequently by passengers than other days the shuttles operate. Ms. Nelson said, This will impact The Villages Green and Blue routes as well as the Orange and Wildwood routes. New schedules are available on the Transit page of the county website www.sumtercountyfl.gov or at The Villages Sumter County Service Center. New schedules for Transit start May 6

As I was driving to the office, I was admiring the beautiful wildflowers growing along side the roadways. For just a few moments, I was experiencing living in the moment. You know that place where experts tell us that all animals live; where they experience the here and now without a wandering thought. I realized something else today. I realized my once brown hair now is peppered with a lot of gray hairs. Just like my old dogs, who once had vibrant colored coats, and now have graying muzzles. It occurred to me that our daily walks used to be fast paced, but now we leisurely meander down our road, enjoying the morning scurrying of squirrels and chirping of birds. I enjoy watching spring bring new life to the trees, watching each day as their buds open into leaves. We are growing old together, my dogs and me. My two oldest dogs, Rascal 16 and Rosie 15, both who I adopted as puppies, were once highly active dogs. But as we age, both dogs and humans slow down a bit, and get to experience the joy of everyday blessings. Now a simple walk together holds new observations for us; daily happenings in nature that were always there, but we never noticed because our pace was once much faster. Life is good in the Graves home. All dogs and humans have blended together to form a peaceful and happy family unit. All follow a routine that brings harmony to our household. So what were Ronnie and I thinking when we saw an adorable beagle puppy at our local humane society? Oh how cute, look at those long ears, and that sweet expression. We should adopt him! And so we did. What were we thinking? Our once quiet and peaceful house has become a lively puppy playpen! I am once again getting the exercise I need, as I constantly pick up toys around the house and yard, and my walks are once again fast pace to keep up with a puppy. Gabriel is the new addition to our family. He is young, energetic, a bit goofy, and makes us laugh. He has brought new energy into our home. And he will be with us until he grows old too.

In their memory: Victims of crimes Thursday, May 2, 2013Volume 127 Number 18Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES INSIDE: QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY Who is she? Cops seek clues Its unlikely that its a professionally done tattoo. But its likely to provide substantial help in identifying the female murder victim found last week near Wildwood. Authorities are hoping that the tattoo on the womans left shoulder, coupled with a composite drawing prepared at the University of Florida and pieces of the womans clothing, will help lead them to her identify and eventually to the person responsible for her death. The tattoo of the word Jane is on the womans arm. Authorities suspect that it may have been created in a correctional institution or by an amateur. While authorities have been following up on clues about the womans identity, we really need the publics help to identify her, said sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. The womans badly decomposed body was discovered in woods near State Road 44 and Interstate 75 on the morning of April 22. Because the area is known to attract transients, local authorities have already traveled to Las Vegas and to Alabama to interview people who may have stayed near the site where the womans body was found. BOBREICHMAN EditorCounty libraries could go privateAs he did several weeks ago, County Commissioner Doug Gilpin suggested last Tuesday that the county again look into the possibility of privatizing a county service this time, the county library system. Earlier, Gilpin had suggested County Administrator Bradley Arnold look into the possibility of privatizing more county building services. Within days, the deed had been done with more county work proposed to go to private companies for the upcoming fiscal year. The same thing happened following last Tuesday nights suggestion by Gilpin. The following day, Arnold had drafted a letter to library services personnel telling them that the county was proceeding to contract with a private company for library services and current employees would have to consider to prepare yourself to transition to the private provider, seek alternative employment within our organization or elsewhere, or separation by other means with the County. Arnolds letter also says the employees have until the end of the current budget year to decide what options to take. The current budget year ends on Sept. 30, 2013. According to his letter, Arnold is pursuing a contract with LSSI, a private library management company based in Orlando, to provide library services. The company currently provides services to Osceola County and Lake County had considered contracting with them, Arnold told the Times late last week. Arnold said that he does not expect to have a contract forged with LSSI until this summer for review by the County Commission. The County Commission will have to determine if it wants to approve the contract or maintain the current county-operated library services, he said. All told, about 40 positions would be impacted by the changeover. Arnold said he sent the letter to library perNew coach in town See NEW Page 12See COUNTY Page 2 SPECIAL OLYMPICS TORCH RUN Photo by BRENDA LOCKLEARRunners and bicyclists took to the streets last Thursday for the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run that benefits Special Olympics.

Wildwood will kick-off a brand new football season this year, with a brand new coach. Veteran coach Jimbo Hale will move into the Wildwood head coach slot as Matthew LaBranche accepts a position in Marion County. This will be my 10th year on the sidelines, Hale said of his coaching experience. But he said hes been involved in the strength and conditioning of football players since 1998. I also played football as a youngster and then went on to play at both the high school and college level, so Ive been around the sport for well over 20 See MURDER, Page 2 WILDWOOD Jimbo Hale BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer BOBREICHMAN Editor Sharing survival It was awesome we exceeded our goals, said Sumter Relay for Life chairperson Shari Bare of last weekends event.

PAGEA2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY2, 2013 Its just another stone weve turned over to eliminate suspects, Caruthers said. Authorities still have not revealed how the woman was murdered. Heres the most recent description released about the woman: She is white, 25 to 55 years of age, 5-foot 2 to 5foot 9, 160 to 170 pounds, red or auburn hair with a red scrunchy. The victim had no teeth and may have worn dentures. She was wearing a light colored floral design shirt, size 3XL, gray colored Jersey sweatpants size 36-38, pink and grey colored glasses and white ladies tennis shoes size 10W. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Sumter County Sheriffs Office, Criminal Investigations Division at 569-1680 or call Crimeline (800-423-8477) where callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Authorities were scheduled to have a press conference Wednesday at the site where the body was found in hopes of generating additional leads. MURDERcontinued from Page 1 sonnel last week to prepare them for the possibility of having to consider their employment options if the County Commission decides that it wants to contract with the private provider. Arnold was expected to meet Wednesday with company representatives to consider a contract and then Wednesday evening with county library employees to answer questions and provide additional information. Of key consideration will be whether LSSI can provide the same or better service to the county at a lower cost, Arnold said. It is the latest county department to be considered for privatization. Along with building department operations, the county has privatized the probation department and the transit system with beneficial results, Arnold said. The move to privatization ends up saving the county money which can then be channeled to the countys priority operations: public safety, he said. It then provides additional funds to increase firefighting and law enforcement manpower and operations. The final decision about the countys library system rests with the County Commission during upcoming budget talks in the next few months. COUNTY continued from Page 1 The Sumter County Democratic Executive Committee invited a group of poll watchers and some campaign workers in the past election to an Appreciation Party in their honor on April 16 in Wildwood in commemoration of Volunteer Appreciation Month. Volunteers were presented with a letter of thanks from Sen. Bill Nelson and a Certificate of Appreciation from the committee. The presentations were made by Dr. Karen Judd, chair of DEC and Lisa Marshall, state committeewoman and aide to Senator Nelson.

The other dog didnt make it and had to be destroyed. Their owner, George Teddy Williams, 39, was arrested last week on two counts of animal cruelty and placed in the Sumter County Detention Center. Bond was set at $1,000. Williams was arrested after the two dogs were found locked inside his abandoned Bushnell home in February, according to a sheriffs office report. When investigators went to the home based on information that animals may have been abandoned inside, two dogs attempted to flee from the investigators when they opened the door. Both dogs were apprehended, one of them collapsed in the front yard from lack of muscle control, according to the report. Both of the dogs had been left inside the home for weeks without food and were suffering from neglect and appeared to be extremely underweight. Inside the home, animal feces and urine was throughout, according to the report. No dog food was present and a fivegallon jug of water was found tipped on its side but the dogs could not get to the water because of the long neck on the bottle. A python snake was also discovered in an aquarium in one of the bedrooms, the report states. When encountered by investigators, Williams told authorities that he had to abandon the home because he had lost his job and the electricity had been turned off, according to the report. He said the dogs hadnt eaten for weeks and that be believed one of them had been struck by a car, the report states. He admitted that the dogs needed medical attention but did not take them to a veterinarian because he was afraid he would get in trouble, the report states. Authorities took the dogs to a local veterinarian who determined that one of them needed to be destroyed because of its poor condition, according to Deb Barsell, county community services manager. The other dog, a mixed breed female, remains at animal control. She is still in our custody and under our protection, Barsell said. But she is doing great. She is one pound away from her ideal weight now. She had weighed half that. The dog is not available for adoption at this time. George Teddy Williams, 39, was arrested last week on two counts of animal cruelty and placed in the Sumter County Detention Center. Bond was set at $1,000.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY2, 2013 Library issue is moving way too fast Its not merely a question of saving money. When it comes to Sumter Countys public library system, there are plenty of community ties and connections that must be considered and respected. And when the County Commission goes messing with the idea of converting the libraries from a county-run operation to letting a private company operate the countys library system, there are bound to be plenty of hostile folks to contend with and rightly so. Sumter Countys libraries, for the most part, have been cradled by their communities. Volunteers have nurtured and supported these facilities through years. No matter what their names: Friends of the Library or Library Advisory Board these community volunteers have been the backbones of local libraries. In some cases libraries were built by residents in local communities people who went door-to-door to collect money and gathered and purchased books to create the original libraries. These libraries are viewed as their libraries, and rightly so. They have helped to keep them afloat through many difficult financial times. Volunteers have done everything from organizing bake sales to promoting book sales. Last week, County Commissioner Doug Gilpin suggested that the county look into seeing if it would be wise to privatize the county library system. He won support for his suggestion by his fellow commissioners. The following day, County Administrator Bradley Arnold had a letter out to all library staff telling them to be prepared for the possibility of being privatized, including the possibility of being without a job if the County Commission goes to a privatized system before the end of the year. This all feels like it is moving way too fast and with no community comment or concern. As Arnold prepares to meet with company representatives that may want to operate the county library system, library employees and all those volunteers who have helped their local libraries have their heads spinning in frustration and wonderment. This concept is moving at the speed of light while library supporters are shaking their heads in disbelief. Support neededThe Florida State Legislature is considering critical legislation that will crack down on animal crueltybut time is running out to pass these key measures. We need your help! H.B. 851/S.B. 504 specifies that a person who commits multiple acts of animal cruelty may be charged with separate offenses for each cruel act, making it easier to fairly punish animal abusers. H.B. 851/S.B. 504 makes animal fighting offenses punishable under Floridas anti-racketeering law, which helps law enforcement crack down on this brutal blood sport. H.B. 851/S.B. 650 bans the artificial coloring of rabbits and chicks and prohibits the sale of these baby animals. Selling animals when they are artificially colored or very young encourages people to make impulsive purchases, especially around Easter. Animals are not disposable toyswe must prevent their suffering. Floridas legislative session is wrapping up soon. Help us pass this humane legislation before its too late! What You Can Do Visit the ASPCA. org: Advocacy Center on line to find out how you can support these critical bills. Thank you for speaking up for animals, Florida! ASPCAHelping childrenThere are about 1,700 children in the Marion, Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Citrus counties, who have been removed from their homes for alleged abuse, abandonment or neglect, who are now part of a dependency court proceeding. These children need someone who will speak up for them. A GAL is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a volunteer supervisor and program attorney. He/she becomes familiar with the child and the childs case and makes recommendations to the court to help ensure a safe, caring, stable and permanent environment for that child. Am I eligible to be a GAL? Persons 21 years of age and older, who successfully complete the pre-service training program, have a clean criminal background check and are able to be objective are eligible. How much time must I commit as a Volunteer Guardian ad Litem? A GAL must successfully complete 30 hours of pre-service training. On average, volunteers spend 5-10 hours a month on a case. Most cases last 10 months. How do I get started? Call Lynn Sennett at (352) 2745231 or e-mail her at Lynn.Sennett@gal.fl.gov. For more information and an application, visit our website at www.guardianadlitem.org. The next training begins Monday, June 3, at the Oxford Assembly of God, 12114 N. US Highway 301, Oxford. Applicants requiring a reasonable accommodation, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act, must notify the Guardian ad Litem Program by calling (352) 671-5757. Notification to the recruiter/trainer must be made in advance to allow sufficient time to provide the accommodation.

On behalf of Parsons Circle and 4Generations Institute, I apologize for the postponement, especially to those of you who have already made travel and accommodation plans.

We look forward to keeping in touch and intend to bring this valuable discussion to you about the challenges and opportunities of our multi-generational families and communities. Special emphasis will be given to the ways we can balance our home life and work life to ensure both personal achievement and economic productivity.

What are the different types of skin cancer? Melanoma is the most deadly of all skin cancers (It causes more than 75 percent of skin cancer deaths).It is typically a dark mole that often contains various shades of brown or black, typically irregular in shape and with uneven borders. Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is the most frequently occurring skin cancer. It tends to keep growing if untreated, and in rare cases can start to spread. The signs to look for are an open sore, a shiny bump, a reddish or irritated patch or a white, yellow or waxy scar-like area. Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) are mostly easily treated, but if not removed, some can metastasize, spreading to nearly lymph nodes, which drain the area where the cancer is located: from the lymph nodes, the cancerous cells can spread to distant tissues and organs, becoming life threatening. It is often pink and scaly, a wart-like growth/open sore with irregular borders, that crusts and occasionally bleeds, persisting for weeks. Actinic Keratoses (AK) are pre-cancers that can turn into SCC if left untreated. They are often an early stage in the development of skin cancer. They are small, crusty or scaly patch, often red, or a combination of colors. It sometimes itches, is inflamed and occasionally bleeds. Early detection of skin cancer is key! Cure rates are high, and recurrence rates are low for cancers that are caught and treated early. It is important to check for changes in size, shape and color of pigmented areas. The Skin Cancer foundation highly recommends an annual full-body skin exam by adermatologist. *Facts provided by the Skin Cancer Foundation and American Academy of Dermatology.DISCLAIMER: The information provided is intended solely for educational purposes.

If so, you might want to attend their annual banquet, set to begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 11. The gathering is at the Sumter County Fairgrounds and the event is a fundraiser for the organization, which focuses on getting Central Florida residents with disabilities into the great outdoors. Bill Blackwelder, president of the organization, said its their business to get people with disabilities out and moving. Their website notes that they are a non-profit, faith-based organization. Their goal is to provide opportunities such as hunting, fishing and airboat rides. In the past year, the organization has hosted a Range Day on the first Saturday of each month. Now termed a Family Day, its for all ages and the entire family and held at 2716 CR 321 in Bushnell. Its also for residents with or without disabilities, Blackwelder said, noting they had an estimated 40 people at their last gathering. The event included range practice, a potluck lunch and a short meeting. The organization has coordinated experiences at Windy Acres Rodeo, a bow and trap hunt, a muzzleloader hunt, a modern gun hunt, airboat rides and a turkey hunt. Still on this years agenda is a fishing trip to Cross City. There are no activities slated for the summer, noting July and August are simply too hot. Blackwelder said they formed the organization about a year ago to make sure funds stay in the Central Florida area and serve local residents. The banquet seating is as follows: singles ($50), couples ($80), children ($20) and Sponsors ($200) and Partners ($500). Partners get eight meal tickets, a sponsor membership, partner recognition from the floor, preferred seating, one partner gift, one entry into the gun drawing and general raffle tickets.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY2, 2013, PAGEA9 RELAY FOR LIFE Photos by BRENDA LOCKLEARThe Survivor team was in action mode in this promotional photo. This team was preparing for the weekend, long before Relay for Life opening night ceremonies. Shown (back row, left to right) are: Kristina Eldridge, George Collins, Keith Sumner and Connie Webb; (front row, left to right) office manager Katrina Webb and secretary Judy Scott. Eldridge and Sumner are licensed funeral directors and Collins is an associate for Purcell Funeral Home Vanna White, the Grinch, Dick Clark, Cindy Lou Who, Charlies Angel Kelly, Mrs. C, Marilyn, Festus and Miss Kitty were all on hand for the Stay Tuned for a Cure Relay for Life last weekend.

Their alter egos are: Tiffani Hampton, Brandon Jones, Casey Ryan, Jaylyn Andrews, Diana Howard, Tanya Mikeals, Dustin Tex Miller, Nicole Caddell were more than happen to compete for their teams in the challenge. Looks like the Grinch was out to get Cindy Lou Who at the Relay for Life. Members of the Edward Jones team, they dressed for the competition and the Grinch (Brandon Jones) even took time out to visit with some of the children who were passing by on the track. Sumter Sheriff Bill Farmer (in the drivers seat) poses with his hardworking Relay for Life team, led by Beth Hunt and Rachel Turner. The team went for the Dukes of Hazzard television show and put a variety of things on display, including the General Lee Dodge Charger and Cooters Garage. RELAY continued from Page 1 culmination of months of fundraising from yard and bake sales to breakfasts and haircuts. The funds are turned over to the American Cancer Society for research and to fill needs of patients that range from wigs and prosthetics to counseling and transportation. If you know a cancer survivor, chances are, you know someone who has benefited from the research money thats been raised over the years, around the world. As for this years Relay for Life, Our goal was $50,000 at the end of the relay, we had $53,000. And we actually have until the end of July to collect more money, said Bare. But even they didnt raise another dime, shes thrilled with where they are. The blood bank was also on site and had a goal of 15 pints of blood and got 25. Bare was surprised when she learned campsite number 31, Friends for Hope won the campsite contest it was her team. But the team was hosting a game of Wheel of Fortune that included a long line of customers. So many, they actually had to turn people away. The game included cancer-related words, she said. Retired Sumter County Tax Collector Tom Swain served as honorary chair and Continental Country Club served as one of the main sponsors, delivering a check for $5,400 from their golf tournament. Bare praised her committee of 14 people that made things happen. We had an awesome committee. They have just rocked and made my job so easy, she said.

The funds raised through the event will be used for Special Olympics, as Sumter County athletes compete in the state challenges. We had a very successful torch run this year, said sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. We had participants from numerous law enforcement agencies. This years event, on Thursday, April 25, was also opened up to the public and had several people participate from outside law enforcement. There were about 70 people either on bikes or on foot this year. Caruthers said the event raised an estimated $1,700 in the sale of T-shirts participants buy the shirts to ride and all the funds are sent on to Special Olympics. Or, they can simply buy the shirt to show their support while the run through Sumter is over, shirts are still available and still being sold, he said. In addition, they also collected about $1,500 in tips from their several Tip-A-Cop days at various restaurants around the county. Thats a pretty good year, he said. I think people were very good to Special Olympics this year. Caruthers said the money will be used to put on the games, and help pay for lodging, uniforms and other needs for the Special Olympics athletes. Theres a lot that goes into the state games. They begin in January with a visit to the stores of their biggest sponsor, Publix, he said. They follow up with efforts to sell the merchandise, from shirts to caps and then on the month prior to the run, they work the Tip-A-Cop events. Their efforts are complete for the year with the Torch Run. The final run will end in the Disney World sports complex, with opening ceremonies for the games on Friday, May 17. Ive been affiliated with Special Olympics since I was in high school, Caruthers said, noting that the Interact group he belonged to with help put on the county games. Through that, he saw the good it did for these young athletes. So it just seemed natural for him to take on leading the Torch Run efforts. When you get to the end and you see all those athletes smiling and clapping, right there, you know it was worth it.

One of my favorite authors is Jodi Picoult. She writes love stories mixed with some controversial issue stem cell research, faith healing, euthanasia, teen suicide usually with a lengthy courtroom drama at the end. Her books are impeccably researched. When she tackles an issue, she knows her stuff. In her latest book, The Storyteller, she writes about the Holocaust. Picoult begins with a friendship between a young woman and a 95year-old man who meet at a grief support group. Josef has lost his wife and Sage has lost her mother. As the story unfolds and they become friends, Josef asks Sage to help him die. He chooses her because she is Jewish and he, a German, had been an SS officer at Auschwitz, personally having killed countless Jewish prisoners. He wants forgiveness from her on behalf of those he killed. A huge portion of the book is told by Minka, Sages grandmother, an Auschwitz survivor. She tells her memories of life in Poland as the daughter of the town baker and of the incremental way the Nazis encroached on their town and stripped the people of their humanity. Minka tells of the fear and the waiting and of finally being rounded up and put on the train, of being torn from her father, of hearing about his death, her mothers death, her sisters death everyone in her family brutally murdered. Minka tells of the hunger and the desperation, the cold and the callousness of her captors. She also tells of the bits of hope, like meeting up with her best friend and being assigned to the same barracks where they cling to each other and tell stories of the future when theyll be free. In her research, Picoult used the true stories of survivors, capturing their vivid, detailed memories, which she incorporated in her book. Hers is a breathtaking description of human cruelty. At one point, Minka is reassigned to an office job where she works for a kind boss, kindness being a relative term. But she is able to be warm while she works, and her boss leaves his leftover lunch for her to steal. He also gives Minka a journal for her to write in. She is a storyteller, and at night she writes her story of a cannibalistic monster that terrorizes a village. She reads it to the women in the barracks every night and to her boss every day. What happens next? the women and Minkas boss ask. Minkas story is the one hope that keeps everyone going one more day. Eventually the Allies come and liberate the prisoners in the death camps, including Auschwitz, and Minka finds her way to the U.S. where she never speaks about her Holocaust experiences. I wont spoil what happens to Minka or Josef, in case you want to read the book. But I will tell you that theres an attempt at atonement, a plea for forgiveness and an unanswered question is it too late? Thats our question, too. Is it ever too late for God to forgive? Is a deathbed confession ever too little, too late? But the real question is whether Gods grace is limited. Are heinous, yet repentant, criminals excluded? Two thieves were crucified on either side of Jesus. One died hurling insults and mocking Jesus, but the other one repented. Jesus told him, Today, you will be with me in paradise. A deathbed confession not too little, not too late. But what about a German SS officer who coldheartedly killed people he thought of as vermin and not human? What about Jeffrey Dahmer? Ive heard from several sources that he came to faith in Christ while he was in prison for his serial killing and cannibalism. Surely Gods grace cant cover him! Not after all he has done. Can it? Does it? If the answer is no, then its not grace. If grace isnt for everyone and anyone who asks, then its not for you or for me either. True grace is disturbing. But thats what makes it so amazing.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

These students had to compete with over 100 fellow fifth graders by taking tests on science vocabulary and scientific concepts. They were the winners in each of their classes and will be going to the Sumter Environmental Education Center (SEEC) at the end of the school year to compete in a fun Science competition against other 5th graders from BES! years total, as both a coach and player. I coach because Im called to. I coach to change lives. I coach to change the world. There are snares and traps lying around every corner in life, just waiting for any unwary, gullible, or unsuspecting young man to step into them. I want to have a hand in winning this nation back and I feel that it all starts with our young men. I want these men to learn the core values that build character, which will help them become an outstanding husband, daddy, and community leader later in life. Ultimately, I coach to leave behind a legacy that far outlasts me! I think the game is important because there are situations that we encounter in football that directly transfer to everyday life. Learning to finish the drill in football means to give all you have until that final whistle blows, regardless of how hard it is or how much it hurts. Hale said finishing the drill transfers to everyday life. He began his coaching career when his high school coach, Jon Ward had just become head coach here. Hale attended their spring practice and After practice, he asked me if I was interested in helping them out and even though I had never coached before, I jumped on the opportunity. The rest is history. In addition to getting my first taste of coaching, Jackson County is also where I learned that working in the weight room and training football players, as well as other athletes, was an absolute passion of mine, he said Hes grateful to Ward for giving me a shot even though I had zero experience. He also credits Coach Chad Perry and Coach Phil Jones. He worked under Perry at Coosa High School and said Jones, who coaches at Shorter University, is his mentor. He also credits his wife of 14 years, Jessica, and their four children. He said they are my inspiration to become the best coach I can be. I would be nothing without them! From the team, he said, I want our players striving to display a positive attitude and put forth a positive effort daily, in all aspects of life. The reason I say this is because our attitude and effort are absolutely controllable, regardless of current circumstances or unexpected trials. As he steps into the head coach role in Wildwood, Hale says, I must lead by example period. If I expect one thing out of our players, but dont expect it out of myself, it becomes a functional integrity issue. If I expect my boys to display a positive attitude and put forth positive effort, I had better be doing the same each day. I believe the players deserve a coach who is striving to be the best he can be and nothing less. They will be out there working their tails off in the hot Florida heat nearly every day and I will be asking for their very best. So, in return, they will have my very best as well. They can expect me to be in the weight room training my own body, teaching my classes with integrity and honor, making good choices both on and off the field and striving to live by the core values we teach them. True leaders lead from the front and must be willing to do, themselves, whatever they ask of the people they are leading. That is what I expect of myself. From the team, I expect us to work hard in everything we do and to be relentless in our pursuit of winning each day. This all starts with attitude. Hale said they will pound the rock, explaining that the saying comes from the story of an ancient stone cutter. The stone cutter, taking his hammer and chisel, begins pounding away at a stone. The first hit doesnt even put a dent in the rock. Neither does the second or the third. As a matter of fact, he hits that stone 100 times and nothing happens. However, on that 101st hit, the rock shatters. The stone cutter knows, though, that it wasnt that 101st hit that shattered the rock. Instead, he knows it was the 100 seemingly worthless shots before that that wore the rock down. The moral of the story is that every rep in the weight room counts, every play on the field counts, every practice counts, every question on a test counts and every good choice counts, because we never know when that rock will shatter! Were going to pound the rock, he said. As for Wildwood strengths, Hale said, Right now, our biggest strength is that we have a unified coaching staff that has the same philosophy and mindset in regard to coaching football, which is rare in todays age. We all believe in character building above all else. He plans to begin summer workouts and conditioning with the Wildcats team in June. The training will include strength training talk and core values discussion and field conditioning. It is imperative that we are in top condition because many of our players will have to play both ways. During each workout, we will spend about 10 minutes each day talking about core values aand how they apply to our lives. As coaches, we will be scouting our upcoming opponents and getting ready for that first game of the season! We look forward to Pounding the Rock here at Wildwood! Wildwood Wildcats get a new coach ...

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MAY2, 2013, PAGEA13 Home lost, puppies saved Emergency workers provided oxygen through special pet oxygen masks carried on their trucks; with this care being continued by the on-scene Rural Metro ambulance crew. Shown is one of the puppies saves from underneath the burning house. On Wednesday morning, April 24, Sumter County Fire & EMS responded to a report of a residential structure fire on S.E. 1st Dr. in Bushnell. Arriving within six minutes of the call, crews were met with heavy fire showing from the center of the structure, with flames moving quickly through the roof. After determining that all of the occupants were safely out of the structure, crews were able to quickly contain, and then extinguish the fire. The five residents, who were sleeping in the home at the time the fire was discovered, are considered extremely fortunate to have escaped, as they did not have a working smoke detector in the home. Sumter County Fire & EMS Chief Leland Greek said that When a fire of this nature occurs, while the family is sleeping, the outcome is often much different, resulting in fatalities. A family member who happened to be sleeping in the living room was fortunate enough to be awakened by the sounds of the fire, alerting the rest of the residents to escape. After extinguishing the bulk of the fire, and during a secondary conversation with the residents, it was noted that there was a litter of puppies somewhere under the house. However, due to the amount of fire damage, some effecting the floor, together with the heavy smoke that had emitted from under the doublewide home, there wasnt much hope for their survival. This new information prompted several of the Fire & EMS crew members to initiate a search under the home, hoping there was just a chance that the puppies may have survived. Lt. Casey Stanberry located the first puppy, which was slow to respond, and appeared to be in poor condition. However, he and fellow Firefighter/Paramedic Brian Hoogewind provided oxygen through special pet oxygen masks carried on their trucks; with this care being continued by the on-scene Rural Metro ambulance crew. Encouraged with their find, Firefighter/EMT Joe Marchese crawled under another section of the home, and was able to locate the four remaining puppies, which appeared in good health. Upon returning all five dogs to the owners, they indicated that sadly, due to losing everything in the fire, they would no longer be able to care for dogs, and they would need to go to Animal Services. With that information, and having a new sense of ownership, three Sumter County Fire& EMS crew members asked the owner if they could each adopt one of the dogs. Lt. Stanberry, FF/EMT Marchese, and FF/EMT Jesse Maslan are now providing new loving homes to three of their saves. Sumter County Animal Services took custody of the two remaining puppies, with hopes that they too may be able to find loving homes. If interested, contact Sumter County Animal Services at 352-569-1960. The cause of the morning blaze was determined to be accidental, and electrical in nature. This doublewide mobile home in Bushnell was destroyed by fire last week but the residents were safe. So was the litter of puppies emergency workers removed from underneath the home. Nursery destroyed by fire ... At 2:38 p.m., Saturday, April 27, Sumter County Fire & EMS crews were dispatched to a structure fire at 665 N.US 301 in Sumterville. Arriving six minutes after the initial dispatch, the first arriving fire crew found heavy smoke and flames emitting from several connected structures at the Shady Brook Nursery. Crews worked quickly to contain the fire from spreading to a nearby residence, working around downed power lines and exploding canisters. With no fire hydrants in the immediate area, crews set up a portable water tank, and used tank trucks to shuttle water from the closest hydrant a mile away. Due to the buildings proximity to the road, the water supply operation had to be conducted on the roadway, causing U.S. Hwy 301 to be closed for over two hours, with Sumter County Sheriffs Office detouring traffic around the area. Three engines, two water tenders and several command and support vehicles responded with a total of 14 personnel. Due to the extent of the fire upon the arrival of fire crews, the complex was a total loss. Cause of the fire was deemed accidental, starting from a clothes dryer.

Robert Bradow and Mike Brothers along with other super people put on a wonderful tournament for us. We had a very good turn-out of fishermen and fisherwomen. The weather was magnificent and the lunch was something to brag about. Thanks to Steve and friends. I got to tell you a little about this kind of tournament, its like an old fashion reunion, folks sitting around, sipping on sweet tea and enjoying each others company while the boats are out. Then around 12:45 sounds like the race of a life time. Here they come with bass in hand to weight in, listening for the numbers to be called out. Seeing the excitement and the smiles does a heart good. After the weight-in theres a Blessing said for lunch. This is the fellowship part I enjoy, not only for a wonderful meal, but the gathering itself. See what you dont realize, Gods presence was here, and it just dont get any better that that. Now the results for this day. First place went to Allen Whitt and Robbie Peralta They total weight was 14.05 Robbie had Big Bass weight was 5.07.

President Betty Weaver announced that our chapter received an award for our altruistic work at the April 16th meeting of the Sumter County School Board. Susan Vergnani received her certificate as a new member of Delta Gamma. President Weaver welcomed three local teachers who were nominated as Teacher of the Year: Brooke Shea, Jessica Istre, and Jessica Christian. These ladies were being honored for their outstanding work in education. Chapter member Patty Rickles presented an informational program about the history of Alpha Delta Kappa, its founders, and its altruistic programs. Members shared their experiences as members of ADK through the years and how Alpha Delta Kappa has enriched their lives. The meeting adjourned at 7:45 p.m. The next meeting will be on Monday, May 13, at the Coyote Rojo restaurant in Bushnell. Delta Gamma honors local teachers at meeting Jim Duncan, CEO of Sumter Electric Cooperative, today announced that 12 graduating seniors from SECOs service territory have each won $3,000 scholarships from the Cooperative. According to Duncan, SECOs scholarship program began in 1996 when the SECO Board of Trustees first approved it. Since then, including this years winners, SECO has awarded 221 scholarships to deserving high school seniors. Duncan said, With todays high cost of a college education, every dollar that can be dedicated to the pursuit of higher education is important. At SECO were very proud of the young people in our service territory and we hope that, following college, some of them will bring their new found skills and knowledge back to our area. We wish our scholars well as they pursue their academic endeavors. This year 155 qualified applicants from throughout SECOs service territory were evaluated based on their scholastic achievements, school and community service activities, and financial need. The SECO scholars for 2013 from Sumter County are: Jessica Casteel, Villages Charter School; Jessica Lemay and David Crespo, both of South Sumter High School. These outstanding seniors were selected by SECOs Scholarship Committee of independent educators from the application materials submitted by each student. Scholarship recipients and their families will be honored at a special reception at SECOs headquarters building in Sumterville at 4 p.m. on May 20. SECO provides scholarships Volunteering at Hospice House after retiring Paula Knight knew exactly what she was going to do when she retired. The south Sumter County resident and former registered nurse wanted to volunteer for Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care because two family members had died in hospice care. I feel every person has a moral responsibility to give back, especially because we truly are blessed here in the United States, says Knight. She was one of the first volunteers at the Lane Purcell Hospice House when it opened in 2009 but her duties are nothing like her nursing career. I work as a cook. I answer the phones and Im a greeter, says Knight who has lived and worked in Sumter County for 47 years. I love the work! Knight especially enjoys how her volunteering at the House fits her retirement schedule. Im as busy as I want to be. They are very accommodating. Knight likes to find out what patients and their families like to eat so she can prepare it for them. Little things make a big difference so I find out whether theyre a pork person or a biscuit and jelly person, says Knight. Its not just the patients were caring for but the families, too. They are so worried and we can ease their minds. Because shes been in the community for so long, many of the patients and family who come to the Lane Purcell Hospice House know Paula. It makes them feel more comfortable having a compassionate and familiar face to help them through this journey, said Kim Carter, Cornerstone Hospice Volunteer specialist. Cornerstone Hospice seeks more volunteers like Knight and has scheduled a hospice volunteer training class in June:Being a Cornerstone Hospice volunteer requires 16 hours of specialized training that covers not only medical privacy policy but also addresses how to deal with a patient approaching end of life, says Carter. The next Sumter County training is scheduled for Wednesday, June 5 and Wednesday, June 12, each day from 8:30 a.m. 4 p.m. The classes will be held at the Lane Purcell Annex, adjacent to the Hospice House, 2452 CR 526E in Sumterville. Volunteer activities may include transporting patients to doctors appointments, giving caretakers a break, cutting a hospice patients hair, helping to take care of a patients pets or even sewing comfort items for patients and their families. Sumter County community members interested in volunteering at the Lane Purcell Hospice House or who would like to learn more about many other volunteer opportunities can visit the Cornerstone Hospice website or call 1-888728-6234.

Why does so little rock show at Floridas surface? What is deep down under the Florida platform? Eugene Bouley, a retired Geology Professor and board member of the Palatlakaha Environmental and Agricultural Reserve (PEAR Park) in Leesburg, will discuss Floridas unique geology Thursday, May 9th at 2:30 p.m. at The Villages Public Library at Pinellas Plaza. This program is part of our VIVA 500 celebration that commemorates 500 years of Floridas history and cultural diversity. Program is free of charge but registration is required. For more information or to register by phone, call (352) 689-4588. Florida sand is topic of discussion Effective May 6, Tuesday and Thursday shuttle services will be suspended due to a recent analysis of shuttle ridership. Debbie Nelson, Transit Contract Manager stated, In light of recent increases in transportation requiring highest priority, specifically medical appointments and employment, it became necessary to look at services with no dedicated funding source. Tuesdays and Thursdays were found to be used less frequently by passengers than other days the shuttles operate. Ms. Nelson said, This will impact The Villages Green and Blue routes as well as the Orange and Wildwood routes. New schedules are available on the Transit page of the county website www.sumtercountyfl.gov or at The Villages Sumter County Service Center. New schedules for Transit start May 6

As I was driving to the office, I was admiring the beautiful wildflowers growing along side the roadways. For just a few moments, I was experiencing living in the moment. You know that place where experts tell us that all animals live; where they experience the here and now without a wandering thought. I realized something else today. I realized my once brown hair now is peppered with a lot of gray hairs. Just like my old dogs, who once had vibrant colored coats, and now have graying muzzles. It occurred to me that our daily walks used to be fast paced, but now we leisurely meander down our road, enjoying the morning scurrying of squirrels and chirping of birds. I enjoy watching spring bring new life to the trees, watching each day as their buds open into leaves. We are growing old together, my dogs and me. My two oldest dogs, Rascal 16 and Rosie 15, both who I adopted as puppies, were once highly active dogs. But as we age, both dogs and humans slow down a bit, and get to experience the joy of everyday blessings. Now a simple walk together holds new observations for us; daily happenings in nature that were always there, but we never noticed because our pace was once much faster. Life is good in the Graves home. All dogs and humans have blended together to form a peaceful and happy family unit. All follow a routine that brings harmony to our household. So what were Ronnie and I thinking when we saw an adorable beagle puppy at our local humane society? Oh how cute, look at those long ears, and that sweet expression. We should adopt him! And so we did. What were we thinking? Our once quiet and peaceful house has become a lively puppy playpen! I am once again getting the exercise I need, as I constantly pick up toys around the house and yard, and my walks are once again fast pace to keep up with a puppy. Gabriel is the new addition to our family. He is young, energetic, a bit goofy, and makes us laugh. He has brought new energy into our home. And he will be with us until he grows old too.
