For more than several decades now, landowners and military personnel have been involved in a continuing effort to investigate conditions on about 1,530 acres of land about a mile northeast of Bushnell used by the U.S. Army during World War II. Now the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has completed its investigation and has determined that no further action is needed at the site. The pastoral land, between U.S. 301 on the west, County Road 471 to the east, Belt Avenue to the south and County Road 532 to the north, was once the home of the Bushnell Army Airfield. The site was used between 1940 and 1946 to train pilots and air crews and a portion of it was used to support research being conducted in the Withlacoochee State Forest. The Army constructed two runways on the land, one for fighter Thursday, June 13, 2013Volume 127 Number 24Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.orgFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES INSIDE: QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY What a pig!He has been on the cover of the New York Post, the Chicago Tribune, and the Boston Herald just to name a few.

Hundreds oppose privatization Sumter County commissioners will consider later this month whether they want to privatize the countys library system as hundreds of county residents voice their opposition to the idea. The possibility was considered late in April after County Commissioner Doug Gilpin suggested that the county may want to explore the possibility of privatizing the library system because privatization has worked well in other county departments. The follow day after Gilpins suggestion, County Administrator Bradley Arnold had drafted a letter to library services personnel telling them that the county was proceeding with plans to contract with a private company and employees should start to consider their options. Since that time, the county has been pursuing a contract with LSSI, a private library management company based in Orlando, to provide library services. The board will decide the issue when it meets at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, at the Colony Cottage Recreations Center, 510 Colony Blvd., The Villages. Before that meeting, the board will have a workshop to discuss library privatization at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, at the Villages Sumter County Service Center. The board will not take public input during that workshop but the public can attend and listen as the board considers the concept and reviews a presentation about privatization. In the meantime, commissioners are receiving strong community support to keep the county libraries as they are. Since the board first broached the idea of privatization, many residents began organizing and voicing their support for continuing with the current system. Most recently, almost 1,500 signatures have been collected on petitions channeled through the Lake Panasoffkee and Villages libraries requesting commissioners to vote against privatization. The petitions were submitted to the County Commission at its May 28 meeting. Among supporters for maintaining the existing county library system was Denise Atherton, treasurer of the Friends of Panasoffkee Community Library. Atherton informed commissioners that the volunteer organization has provided substantial support to the community library. She explained how their efforts have maintained, enhanced and raised funds for the library. She said that could not continue with a private company making money from library operations. We hope privatization will not occur. Arnold told the Times earlier that Sumter was not the only county considering privatization. Lake County was also considering the possibility. However, last week, the Lake County Commission decided not to privatize its library system.

Investigators say they are no closer to knowing her identity or the circumstances surrounding her death. Its frustrating but its not going to stop us, said sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. Well do whatever we can to move this case forward. Most recently, investigators are sifting through information collected from the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Crime Information Center (NCIC). NCIC provides a computerized database accessible to criminal justice agencies about crimes and missing persons. Weve gotten a list of all missing people in their system during the time frame (of the murder), Hofecker said. Were in the process of running those down now. In the meantime, no additional information has been released about the womans murder and leads have diminished. The womans badly decomposed body was discovered in woods near State Road 44 and Interstate 75 on the morning of April 22. The area is known to attract transients. The woman died from a gunshot wound but investigators are not releasing any additional information abut her death. She is believed to have been 50 to 70 years old, between 5 foot 4 and 5 foot 9 with auburn or brunette hair worn in a ponytail. She was heavy and wore either pink or red framed prescription glasses. She had multiple rib fractures on her left side and several lower vertebrate had been fused. The woman did not have teeth and may have worn dentures. She is believed to have been murdered two to four weeks before her body was discovered. 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.

His tiny back legs were deformed and he would never be able to use them. He was brought to Dr. Len Lucero, who owns Sumter Mobile Veterinary. He weighed less than one pound, and he was so cute that Lucero said he felt compelled to save the little piglet. The baby pig spent the next two weeks in an incubator and while he was being cared for, the good doctor created a tiny wheelchair for the infant pig he named Chris P Bacon. At 10 days old, Chris tried out his tiny wheelchair while being videoed by Lucero. When he weighed just a pound, the video of Chris P Bacon went viral on UTube, and a star was born. Luceros and his pals lives have never been the same since. Chris P. Bacon inspires adults and children alike, with his perseverance to overcome obstacles while remaining a playful and happy little fellow, Lucero said. Chris P. Bacons motto is Never Give Up and he spreads his inspiration by visiting people with disabilities, participating in the Muscular Dystrophy Muscle Walk at Lake Lily in Maitland, and helping with fundraising for the Orlando Salvation Army. The little pig has been featured in the Scholastic Weekly Reader, and will soon release three childrens books. His infectious happy-go-lucky personality and friendly nature charm kids of all ages. Chris has his own Facebook page, which is a must for fans of the porker. Vistors can see what Chris is up to each day, and watch him zoom around in his wheelchair, complete with its own customized license plate. Chris has a lot of personality, and his daily quirky posts brighten his fans days. With Because of Chris busy schedule, and Lucero still tending to his animal patients, a public relations person was recently hired to help handle all the publicity Chris generates. So what does the future hold for Chris? His owner says Chris may be headed to commercials or maybe even a movie deal. Lucero hopes the Chris will be able to travel visiting childrens hospitals all around the United States and Canada. Maybe even all over the world! For a little pig born to a wheelchair, Chris P Bacon appears to be rolling on to a bright future, and where ever life leads him, he seems to bring joy to everyone he meets. PIG continued from Page 1 aircraft and a longer one for bombers. They used the site to train bomber pilots and aircrews. When the war ended, the site was no longer needed and the leases were terminated. A portion of the acreage, slightly more than an acre was also used as a gas yard to store chemicals for the Chemical Warfare Service that were used in training in the Withlacoochee State Forest. Over the years, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has evaluated the site several times and has found no evidence of munitions or chemical warfare material remaining at the former airfield, according to Nancy Sticht, Corps public affairs specialist. There is no evidence of anything remaining from the militarys use of the site, according to a Corp press release. Therefore, no further action is necessary. Based on the results of the investigation, the Corps is planning a meeting for later this month to discuss the site history, investigations and the proposed plan. The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26, at the Bushnell Community Center at 407 E. Belt Ave. The Corp is proposing to inform the federal Department of Defense that no known or suspected hazard exists on the land. Copies of the Remedial Investigation report and Proposed Plan are available at the Bushnell Public Library, 402 N. Florida St. The public can comment on the proposed plan until 5 p.m. on Monday, July 29. Comments received during this period will be considered in the final decision-making process.

Two Convenient Locations To Serve Our Patients In Sumter County Most Major Insurance Accepted 000F6LD Sumter District Schools remain at or above the state average for students proficient in reading, writing and science. Out of 67 school districts, Sumter is ranked 1st in eighth grade writing. However, following statewide trends, several areas such as sixth grade reading and tenth grade writing scores appear to be stagnant, while sixth grade math scores hit a low at 29th in the state, a significant decline compared to the previous school year. Complicating the issue, the state is using a newly adopted school grading system and new curriculum learning standards. Additionally, FCAT cut scores have been changed, and the state is in the midst of transitioning to new standardized assessments: FCAT 2.0 Science, FCAT 2.0 Writing and End of Course exams for Algebra I, Biology, Geometry, and U.S. History. While state officials were pleased with students performance this school year on End of Course exams, they did not share the same sentiment regarding the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. I personally see this as a mixed bag of results, said Department of Education Commissioner Tony Bennett. Superintendent Rick Shirley agreed by saying, These are preliminary scores including all curriculum groups. We still have a lot work to do in several areas. Our teachers, administrators, and staff members will continue working hard to prepare students for even more rigorous assessments as we transition toward the Common Core. We arent where we want to be and we will be implementing new strategies for the new challenges ahead. The release of school grades and Adequate Yearly Progress reports for elementary and middle schools are anticipated in the next few weeks. High school grades will be released in the fall because data on graduation rates and other components will not be available until then. Sumter District Schools will make every effort to expedite the process of sharing student results with parents. Student FCAT reports will be available for parent pick-up in the front offices of each school during the week of June 24. Students who earned a 3.0 or higher on any section of the FCAT 2.0 will be receiving congratulatory notes from Governor Rick Scott, in addition to their score reports. Students who earned a 3.5 or higher on the FCAT 2.0 writing section will also receive a congratulatory letter from the Governor, according to the Florida Department of Education. District schools remain above state average Bushnell Elementary Schools reading program, recently recognized the top readers in the school with a special drawing for prizes in the media center.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE13, 2013 No to library privatization Sumter County is not in a position where it needs to consider privatizing its county library system. The county is not cash poor and its not in a real bind to slash services. While privatization may save the county some money, it will destroy something much more valuable. Sumters libraries, for the most part, have survived because of the community support they receive not only from library users but also from dedicated volunteers determined to help sustain and expand their community libraries. Saving money cant be the only consideration when it comes to county libraries. The importance that community libraries contain far outweighs any financial savings the county would reap from turning them over to a private business. If improving library services is the goal, well then those goals need to be discussed with the very people who can make that happen: the library volunteers. In some cases, generations of Sumter families have cared and tended to their community libraries. Privatizing not only cuts that invaluable community connection, it insults those who spend so much time giving of their time and their support. It takes away from them substantial control of their own communities and their facilities. Were glad to see so much support for maintaining libraries as they are. The amount of support on this issue will be very important in the decision-making process. If nothing else, it gives commissioners pause for thought. The county has been moving way too quickly on this issue. The board should not be deciding the fate of an important pillar of a community in a month. Many questions need to be addressed and many community volunteers need to be included before making such a dramatic change that we believe would also be a gigantic mistake. Make sure you attend the final County Commission meeting on this issue on Tuesday, June 25, and let commissioners know that privatization is not a plausible option for our community libraries. The board meets at 5 p.m. at the Colony Cottage Recreations Center, 510 Colony Blvd., The Villages. Honoring retireesRetirees of the Sumter County School Board were recognized at a special dinner and reception sponsored by Brown and Brown Insurance Agency on Thursday, May 30. The formal dinner was held at the School Board Office and catered by G. O. Parrot from Lake Panasoffkee. Chris Norris, School Board chair, presented each retiree with a framed copy of the resolution that was presented and approved at the School Board meeting on Tuesday, May 21. Lisa Whitman, director of Human Resources shared recollections of each retirees career, and Superintendent Richard A. Shirley presented each retiree with a commemorative plaque. Retirees who were honored for their work in non-instructional positions included: Wayne Bennett, Earlene Beserock, Janice Carter, Henrietta Coffey, Antoinette Corbin, Patricia Crawford, Stacia Doggett, Linda Gulley, Diane Langford, Debra Losse, Gwen Lyals-Mays, Gladys McCoy, Helen McDaniel, Helen Morey, Bonnie Peavy, Linda Peavy, Elaine Pittman, Gloria Solomon, April Street, and Diane Williamson. Retirees who were honored for their work in teaching positions included: Esther Bruner, Benachoice Caruthers, Diane Hay, Gloria Ingram, Dennis Lippert, Michael McHugh, Julianne Modcrin, Annette Rawlins, Melinda Richards, Gary Russo, Margaret Warden, and David Wyckoff. The Sumter County School Board appreciates the many years of devoted service each employee has contributed to the students of Sumter County and wishes everyone all the best as they transition into retirement. Sumter County School Board Note of thanksMy brother and I thank the community for honoring Mother for her dedication and many years of service as the first Sumter County Health Nurse. The number of people attending the dedication ceremony was inspiring and heartfelt. When Mother arrived in 1945, she never expected to fall in love with the community and the wonderful people who became her friends and extended family. She took pride in the progress the community made in health initiatives that improved the quality of life for so many. She enjoyed nothing more than helping people in their most troubling times. Therefore, we cannot think of a more endearing way to remember Mothers devotion to the County than to honor her by naming the road in front of the Health Department the Ann R. Fields Memorial Roadway. Equally touching for us is a Plaque with Mothers likeness affixed above a listing of some of her numerous accomplishments. The Plaque is mounted on a wall inside a major County Health Department building. On one side of the Plaque hangs a framed SENATORIAL PROCLAMATION dedicated to Sumters Angel of Mercy and presented by Senator Wilton Simpson. On the other side hangs a framed RESOLUTION NO. 2013-10 PASSED and ADOPTED by the Sumter County Commissioners. What an Impressive Display! This could not have happened without the persistence of Ed Tomberlin who, along with Carolyn Stephens, Rep. Everett Kelly, Bradley Arnold, Dr. Sanford Zelnick, Sharon Madere Reid, Patty Harrison, Paula Knight, Larry Shuyler, Laura Shuyler, and the Sumter County Retired Educators Association, spearheaded the project and engaged many others to participate. County Commissioners Garry Breeden and Al Butler attended the Memorial and assisted with the Roadway unveiling and the Plaque Dedication. They were also instrumental in navigating the governmental requirements and regulations to approve the renaming. Senator Wilton Simpson, although he never met Mother, spoke eloquently of Ann Fields at the dedication ceremony. We want to thank everyone who supported Mother throughout her service to Sumter County. A few of those we would like to give special thanks to are: Paula Knight, Sharon Madere Reid, Warren Maddox (whose mother, Elizabeth Maddox Grindstaff, was considered by Mother to be her right hand at the Health Dept.), Betsy Stanley, Denise Woodward, Tim Farrar, Delbert Farrar, Gail Woodward, Josephine Strong, Kay McCoy, Jackie Peterson, Karen Davis Cloud, Jim Allen, Wade Allen, Marjorie Wells and of course Nellie Beville, Mothers friend for many years. Appreciatively, Phillip A. Fields, Michael J. FieldsFor the ag centerThe West Central Florida Educational Agriculture Center was a culmination of a dream for many Sumter County commissioners, employees, organizations, and citizens. 4-Hers and Farm Bureau members, Master Gardeners and Cattlewomen, Cattlemen and other friends of the agricultural community made trips to meetings, both locally and in Tallahassee, working on plans and securing funding and support until the center was a reality. The building works well for its designed purpose of agricultural education. Sumter County has about sixteen 4-H clubs which often meet for different programs there. The offices of UFIFAS extension services are housed there, as are the USDA offices. Farm Bureau, Cattlemen, Cattlewomen, and Coastal Springs FNGLA use the facility for meetings and activities. Master Gardeners have constructed and maintain a garden for teaching and exhibition purposes. A kitchen, conference rooms, and an auditorium/banquet hall serve multiple groups Agritunity, an educational program started through the work of former Extension Director Susan Kelly, is usually held on the premises. Agritunity brings people from all the surrounding area into Sumter County to learn about opportunities in horticulture, farming, agritourism, animal production, and small farm economics. Last year, 400 people attended the conference which included a local farm tour. The classes and seminars were presented by IFAS and extension teachers and professionals and specialists brought in for their expertise. The Agricultural Center currently houses the office of the Sumter County Fair Board, also, as the Sumter County Fair showcases many aspects of Sumter County agriculture. The steer, swine, and sheep shows, and 4-H exhibits in art, photography, clothing, crafts, and foods draw many people to the fair. Young and old fair goers enjoy the many 4-H exhibitors animals in the barn housing chickens, rabbits, goats, and various other project animals. Booths representing agricultural organizations remind visitors of the importance and the impacts of agriculture in Sumter County. The Sumter County Ag Advisory Committee is supportive of the programs of extension and IFAS, and its members feel that the ag center is the best place to house the offices and programs of the extension services. It is the best place for Master Gardeners and 4-Hers to study and practice their crafts. It is what the building was designed and built for.

Our people and our country lost economic power. We lost a degree of military power, and we started losing our leadership position in the world. When we lost those good blue collar jobs we lost a good tax base that kept our government on firm fiscal ground. When we lost our industries we lost a solid part of the economy, and we started down the road to losing the middle class. Many people who get their disinformation from the same corporations that are outsourcing American manufacturing believe that the labor unions are to blame. However, in the 1950s about 35% of the private work force was unionized, and those were prosperous times. Today less than 7% of the private work force is unionized and the prosperity has left with the union jobs and the industries that created those jobs. American workers were making good profits for what were then American corporations, but along the way the American corporations morphed into multinational corporations. The prosperity of those new multinational corporations was no longer strictly tied to the United States. There were greater profits to be made manufacturing in third world countries. Outsourcing American jobs raised wages in the third world and lowered wages in the USA. The investor class that is busy outsourcing American jobs is also working very hard to make sure that they continue to pay taxes at 14% while hard working truck drivers are killing themselves for 20 cents a mile, and they are paying 28% in taxes. Having the middle class carry twice as much tax burden as the upper classes is PART of the reason the upper 1%, 2%, 5% have accumulated so much wealth while the people who are farther down the socio-economic ladder have been slipping even farther down the rungs. As a country we were stupid to let corporations outsource our manufacturing work to third world countries and then allow the same corporations unrestricted access to the consumer market they had just economically disemboweled when they took the jobs away. As a country we need to reward domestic manufacturers by allowing them to have unfettered access to our domestic consumer market. Outsourced industries and foreign industries should not have the kind of access to our domestic consumer markets that our domestic manufacturers have. We need to create and support blue collar jobs. Not everyone is able or wishes to go to college. Better economic opportunities for labor at all skill levels will mitigate so many of the other problems we are facing. Sincerely, Michael J. Harris Webster

Mosquito production is directly associated with weather conditions (annual rain fall, temperature and humidity). With the recent rain fall and increased temperatures mosquito populations are on the rise. Now is the time to begin the adult mosquito control operations (adulticidingnight spraying). Spraying operations, which are determined by adult surveillance, mosquito light trap counts, landing rates and/or citizen complaints, are completed nightly in different zones of the county. Annually, the Mosquito Control Department also receives numerous requests for control of aquatic midges (blind mosquitoes). While aquatic midges are a nuisance, they do not carry or transmit disease. Therefore, our control efforts are focused mainly on mosquitoes, which can carry and transmit disease to humans. Cancellation of night spraying can be caused by several different factors: Winds greater than 10 mph. Temperatures cooler than 50 degrees F. Inclement weather (Rain). Mechanical failures. Surveillance of adult mosquitoes (light trap counts not meeting operational thresholds). Tips for controlling mosquitoes around your home: Remove standing water in old tires, buckets, drums or any other container. Check clogged gutters and flat roofs that may have poor drainage. Empty plastic wading pools, bird baths and pet water bowls at least once a week. Drain water from boats being stored. Fill in tree holes and hollow stumps that hold water. Stock your ornamental water gardens with mosquito-eating fish (gambusia, minnows or gold fish). Repair screening on windows, doors, porches and patios. Drain water from old pools not in use. Tips for avoiding and repelling mosquitoes: The most effective protection may be obtained through the use of products containing at least20-30 percent diethyl toluamide (DEET)*. Follow the directions carefully and do not over apply. Extra care should be taken with children under 5, adults over age 55, and those with weakened immune systems due to chronic illness as these populations are at a greater risk from mosquito-borne diseases. If you have any questions, concerns, or requests for mosquito control operations in your area, please do not hesitate to call your Sumter County Mosquito Control Department at 352-569-6700. Please visit our website at www.sumtercountyfl.gov. County mosquito spraying begins

TEACHER APPRECIATION OUT AND ABOUT Johnson to be among featured artists at exhibit On November 2, 2013 the Sumter County Arts Guild will hold its first exhibition to celebrate the organizations 10-year anniversary. The event will include a collection of works by various local artists. Member Deanna Johnson is one of the artists who will be featured. She had always admired anyone who could paint and draw. While teaching at Coral Shores High School in Upper Keys Community College, she had an opportunity to hone her talent. She took a class in drawing and watercolors, conducted by Millard Wells a well known Keys artist. Johnson was hooked. She and a classmate from Wells class, became weekend plen aire painters. Plen aire is the act of painting of literally painting in the outdoors or open air. She has since given up the plen aire painting, but continues her art studies via workshops in various styles and techniques. Her favorite medium remains watercolor, and a favorite memory is her first sale. The Sumter County Arts Guild is a great group of artists, she said, noting that she learned about the group back in 1996, when she retired from teaching and moved to Wildwood. The Guild meets each Wednesday, between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the Sumterville Community Building. All artists are invited. Art works by Deanna Johnson will be featured at the Sumter County Arts Guild exhibit. The documentary film Into Harms Way will be offered by the Justice and Peace Committee of The United Church of Christ at The Villages on Tuesday, June 18, at 7 p.m. The film is based on the true story of The West Point Class of 1967, who, as commissioned officers, found that America was embroiled in a strange and unpopular war in Southeast Asia.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE13, 2013, PAGEA9 FROM THE GROUND UP Johanna Jones, Jim Davis, Tom Neilson and Roger Jones work on the new windmill. After a morning of hard work, it was time for a hot dog cookout for the gardeners. By Donna Lester UF/IFAS Extension Sumter County Horticulture Program Assistant From seven years of labor and love, emerges a demonstration garden at the UF/IFAS Extension office, thanks to the Master Gardener volunteers and Sumter County Extension office staff. A windmill and water pond, blanket flowers and fresh herbs all part of the garden on the Sumter County fair grounds in Bushnell.

This garden has also been certified by the National Wildlife Federation, as a Wildlife Habitat. This is the time of year that the garden is most rewarding native wildflowers are in full bloom and Florida-friendly plants are inviting busy bees and butterflies to enjoy their sweet nectar. The tranquil sound of water running invites birds to sing their sweet melodies, as they sweep from one native privet bush to another, filling up on the black berries they offer. The herb garden lends a variety of aromas to entice the senses and the vegetable garden gives a harvest that is so plentiful, that theyre able to share the fresh-picked goodness with visitors to the office.
