The Scenic Sumter Heritage Byway advocacy group has worked for two years to get 62 miles of contiguous roads in Sumter County designated as a scenic byway. The Florida Scenic Highways Program, sponsored by the FDOT was established to showcase outstanding public roads and their adjacent communities as unique and worthy of statewide recognition. The Sumter Chamber of Commerce, community leaders and a local veterans group along with several businesses and private citizens worked with Sumter County Government and the Citys of Webster and Bushnell to seek this designation. In May 2013 the Sumter Byway became the states 24th byway to be recognized by the FDOT as being the Best of the Best for its scenic and heritage qualities. The roads that comprise the Byway include a cross section of the special qualities (both scenic and heritage) that Sumter County has to offer. The byway starts on SR 50 at the Van Fleet Trail then proceeds through Webster then westward to Veterans Memorial Highway as it passes by the Florida National Cemetery then to the Dade Battlefield in Pets of the week In May 2013 the Sumter Byway became the states 24th byway to be recognized by the FDOT as being the Best of the Best for its scenic roadways and heritage qualities. The map above provides the outlined route of the 62 miles of contiguous roads in Sumter designated as a scenic byway. Countdown to library vote As the June 25 date approaches when county commissioners will vote on the emotionally-charged issue of whether they want to privatize the county library system or not, a volley of petitions from privatization supporters was recently added to the county records. The new round of petitions, containing 64 signatures, was submitted to the board at the June 11 meeting by County Commissioner Doug Gilpin. Gilpin said that someone had stopped him earlier that day and asked the commissioner to read the petition into the board record. Gilpin did not identify who gave him the petitions. I said I would read them into the record but I really dont want any more, he said. Were not collecting box tops here and sending in for a prize. Gilpin said its clear that there are strong feelings on all sides of the library issue. The petition states, "As a Sumter County resident I feel the outsourcing of the everyday functions of the county libraries would be a better way to serve the public and achieve maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense." Many of the signatures on the petition are difficult to read and none of them include telephone numbers or addresses of the people who signed them. As the deadline for the vote approaches, a demonstration for support of continuing the current public library system was planned for Tuesday morning in Wildwood while a workshop meeting was planned that evening by county commissioners to garner more information about the privatization concept. The final decision will be made when the board meets at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, at the Colony Cottage Recreations Center, 510 Colony Blvd., The Villages. The possibility of privatizing the countys public library system has been met with strong opposition throughout the county. Late in May, the County Commission was presented with petitions signed by almost 1,500 people opposed to the privatization concept. The petitions were channeled through the Lake Panasoffkee and Villages libraries. See SHOT Page 2 The new round of petitions, containing 64 signatures, was submitted to the board at the June 11 County Commission meeting in support of privatizing the county library system. Commissioner Doug Gilpin said someone gave him the petition to submit for the county record.BOBREICHMAN Editor Drumming his way toward the future Bushnells reputation of producing fine young musical talent may have just been polished up by the likes of Curtis Lyons Jr., 19, winner of a national-level drumming competition at the 2012 National Fine Arts Festival in Louisville, Ky. Curtis led the group of nine musicians from across the United States honored in the traditional percusssion solo category. Curtis who is a selftaught drummer has been competing since the age of 16, consistently progressing along his musical journey. Using popular learning resources such as Youtube videos coupled with hours of diligent practice, Curtis has been able to steadily bridge the gap of having drumming as a hobby versus a fulltime career. Gaining both experience and exposure with the help of social media such as Youtube, he boasts a fan base of almost 2,000 viewers, Curtis has been able to see his rookie ways of drumming become more fine-tuned and impressive to judges. Among the most lofty of his childhood dreams was the hope of one day growing up to be a NASCAR racer. That was all to change when Curtis laid eyes on a drum set for the first time and began to feel that he had found the niche that he longed searched for. Curtis has been burning up with a fever for percussion ever since, that has Bushnells Curtis Lyons won a national-level drumming competition at the National Fine Arts Festival.ISAACPINEIRO Special to the Times See ROADS, Page 2 See DRUM, Page 2 The Sumter County Sheriffs Office is investigating a Monday night shooting that sent a Wildwood man to the hospital with non life threatening injuries. The shooting happened about 6:15 p.m. on June 17 in the area of County Road 230 and County Road 205C in the Moreland Park community, north of the City of Wildwood, according to a sheriffs office report. The victim, a 35year old Wildwood resident, was walking on County Road 230 with two others and confronted a speeding driver. The victim and the driver of the car exchanged words and the driver of the vehicle brandished a small caliber pistol, according to the report. The victim and driver of the vehicle were struggling over the firearm when it discharged, striking the victim at least one time in the upper right back. The two witnesses were uninjured, and the driver of the vehicle fled the scene. The vehicle was later located in the 200 block of Pedestrian shot during clash with motorist

The victim was treated and released from Leesburg Regional Medical Center. The investigation is ongoing. SHOTcontinued from Page 1 A life of firefighting experience Lorenzo Brooks grew up in a family with more than a half dozen siblings, watching his mom as she struggled to take care of them all. It bothered him that she had it so hard and by the time he was 15, he went to work to help her out. My momma had to struggle to take care of us. She sacrificed for us, so I just appreciated that. Fortunately, in his family, his siblings were also more than willing to help their mom. Brooks believes it was that concern for his mothers struggles and empathy for others that led him to become a firefighter and fire chief. That concern extended to other people. I think it comes from when I was coming up Id seen a lot of people that needed help. I prayed to the Lord to bless me to be able to help people that are in need. Last month, Brooks retired after 25 years of serving his community as Royals fire chief. His work as a volunteer firefighter began in 1987, he said. Thats when they got the building and a grant from the government to offer fire services in the community of Royal. Brooks was interested because it meant they could offer the Royal community fire services that they had never had before. Before that, We had to depend on Oxford and it would take them a long time to get here. Three or four years later, they were even getting paid to serve and by 2002 the county offered unified fire services and they were paid on call, he said. In the beginning, Joseph Graham was chief. He was chief and I was assistant chief, Brooks said, noting that about a year and a half later, when Graham wanted out, Brooks took over in the chief position. The unification led to training firefighters as first responders and getting them into some medical training, he said. He wasnt surprised when the services expanded he expected things would progress and they would get more equipment and better education. He is grateful for the added education they received as firefighters, most notably the CPR and First Aid training they received as first responders. We can even deliver babies if we have to, noting that its useful in fire services and its useful in the home. While Brooks was volunteering and serving the community, he raised his family working as a mechanic for the Sumter County School District. I did that for 35 years and I retired from that in he said, noting he was able to spend more time with the fire department then. After a while, he went back to the school board, but only to drive buses until November of 2012. Retired again, hes now focusing his service as a deacon in his church BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Lorenzo Brooks See BROOKS, Page 3 000F521 000DMVL CARPET DEPOT CARPET DEPOT CARPET DEPOT & MORE & MORE & MORE More Than Just A Flooring Store Carpet Hardwood Laminates Vinyl Tile Area Rugs Binding Remnants Blinds & Shutters State Certified Minority Business 303 N.

and helping community members. Ive been a Christian for probably 35 or 38 years, he said, adding he teachers Sunday school and does Bible studies. Hes also hoping to take online classes at Moody Bible Institute. Its been my dream for a long time. While hes taught for years, to satisfy society you have to have stuff on paper, he said of his pursuit of a degree. He and his wife Perlena J. Brooks just celebrated their 39th anniversary and are the parents of three sons and one daughter: Lorenzo, Jr., Nepolian A., Ezekiel E. and Arlena Ann Brooks Jones all grown now. As for his years in service through firefighting, I really didnt have any close calls, and that he attributes to training. They taught us pretty good how to protect ourselves, he said, noting that with propane and other danger potential, the call may be to move on to the house next door and stop the fire from spreading. We always did what we were taught to do, to try and protect ourselves. And while Brooks saw much of the unification as a good thing, with all his added knowledge, he goes back to the beginning and says it wasnt quite like that then. He was about to become a first responder, dealing with medical issues on site. But, I couldnt really stand the sight of blood, he said, recalling that he was saying to himself, I dont think that Im going to be able to do this. I didnt tell them that thats what I was telling myself. But he learned that even when theres a lot of blood, it doesnt necessarily mean the patient will die. He said through his training, he learned the importance of staying calm and understanding what was happening and what to expect. That allowed him to help those who needed him. In the beginning, he just hung back a bit, easing up to observe what was happening and watching the responders becoming more and more bold. Now its old hat to him. It got to the point where it didnt bother me. He liked being a firefighter and even a first responder and said, It makes you feel good, being able to save people and their things. Members of the Royal community gathered April 20 to honor Brooks with a retirement breakfast. The event was held in the Royal Community Center included a greeting line and a live performance of The National Anthem by local vocalist Dionne Solomon. Residents, county officials, firefighters and family gathered as the group showed their patriotism. The invocation was led by Rev. Lorenza Robinson, which was followed musical performances by Psalms of Praise a local vocal group. Sumter County Fire Chief Leland Greek shared remarks about the 25 years of service Brooks provided and retired Sumter County Fire Chief Bill Gulbrandsen wrote Even though he has retired from the fire service, Chief Brooks continues as a dedicated leader in his church, his family and his community. I am proud to have served with him during the founding years of Sumter County Fire Rescue and respect all that he has accomplished. He went on to write, Things I learned from Chief Lorenzo Brooks that I try to instill in younger firefighters today: serve your God, serve your family, serve your community. You cant do better than that. The program was sponsored by the Royal Library Association with Deacon Henry Pinder as the master of ceremonies.SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE20, 2013, PAGEA3 ESTABLISHED1881(USPS#535-880)GIVEUSACALL NewsDepartment..............352-793-2161 Circulation..................1-888852-2340 RetailAdvertising....... ....... 352-793-2161 ClassifiedAdvertising..TollFree1-877-676-1403 Fax.......................... 352-793-1486 TheSumterCountyTimesispublishedThursdays, 52timesayear,forasubscriptionpriceof $25.00peryearinSumterCountyby:SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES204E.McCollumAve. Bushnell,Florida33513 Deadlines:Displayadvertising Proof....................

BROOKScontinued from Page 2 Clues sought to identify theft suspects in 2 cases Investigators are still hopeful that someone in the community may have information about two thefts last week that had similarities. Both the Sumter County Sheriffs Office and Wildwood Police Department are investigating two theft complaints where the suspects distracted the victims in order to take items from two different businesses, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The first theft happened about 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 11, at the CITGO gasoline station, 391 E. State Road 44, in Wildwood. Two suspects attempted to distract the store clerk while a third suspect attempted to steal a laptop computer from inside the business, according to a sheriffs office report. The store clerk saw the attempted theft and intervened and prevented it. The three suspects then fled the store in a silver-colored Chevrolet Malibu. The second theft happened about 2:46 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, at Terrascape Landscaping and Nursery Company located at 9890 Hwy 301 in the City of Wildwood. Two suspects again enter the business distracting employees before a third suspect entered an empty office and removed an undisclosed amount of money from a desk. It is believed that the suspects where in a silvercolored Chevrolet sedan. If anyone has had similar incidents or knows the identity of these subjects please contact Det. Israel Istre at the Sumter County Sheriffs Office at 569 1680 or by email at email@example.com or Det.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE20, 2013 Petition is curious Something is unsettling about the petition that County Commissioner Doug Gilpin recently submitted during a County Commission meeting. The petition, signed by 64 people, supports the concept of privatizing the county public library system. The petition states: "As a Sumter County resident I feel the outsourcing of the everyday functions of the county libraries would be a better way to serve the public and achieve maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense." Sounds like these petitioners have done their homework about library operations. If thats correct, there are still some very pesky concerns about this petition. First off, it is bothersome that Gilpin was the presenter. He said he had been given the petition by someone so it could be entered into the county record. No word of who that person was. It doesnt seem right that Gilpin should be the messenger. He would have done better to simply tell the person to submit the petition in person to the board, just as other petitioners who support keeping the libraries public have done. Additionally, where do you find 64 people who so strongly favor privatizing the county library system? Another issue. Why does this petition only contain signatures? There are no printed names, no addresses, no phone numbers and many of the signatures are difficult to read. Gilpin also said after presenting the petition that there are many people on both sides of this issue. Really? Are there? Apparently supporters are only visible through this petition or else, they arent inclined to voice their sentiments publicly. Throughout the county, there have been overwhelming displays of support for keeping the county libraries public. Maybe privatization supporters just dont feel comfortable when faced with so much support from the other side. Or maybe we just havent heard much from these privatization supporters. We sure have heard a lot from those supporting a public library system. Remember, this issue comes to a final vote when the County Commission meets on Tuesday, June 25. If you have concerns, you want to be at that meeting. A story appears in this weeks edition with additional information. No to privatizationIn the last few years there have been several services provided by employees of Sumter County that have been privatized. The County Commissioners are now considering the privatization of our Library System. Generally such moves are under the guise of saving money. That is doubtful. They have scheduled visits to recently privatized library systems, and will have a workshop on the subject. They are scheduled to vote on whether or not to proceed on June 25. Perhaps we should consider the wisdom and the impacts this would have if approved. The first impact this proposal would be on the 38 full time county employees that presently staff our public library system. Their jobs and benefits would be in jeopardy. In every job I have ever had, it was understood by both myself and my employer that my job was secure as long as I met its requirements and the service I rendered was still needed. This was true while working for the public or a private firm. It was true whether contracted, hourly, and with or without benefits. These employees jobs will be outsourced while every survey shows that they are dedicated, competent, and exemplary in the execution of their duties. Even if the private company hires some of them, It will not be the same. The County will have broken its trust. That isnt the function of government. Government is comprised of people and so are its employees. The next impact would be more subtle, yet even more alarming. The Board has been led to believe that the contractor would provide better service than we now have and would introduce new technologies. That is easy to say, but doubtful with no increase in cost. The County would be turning over its responsibility to a private firm. There is great potential for gradual loss of control and the longstanding citizen library support groups would lose their identity. We need, perhaps as much as any time in our history, a functional, vibrant, and service oriented, public library system. We cannot let this change happen. Tell your commissioners to vote NO! David Starnes Lake PanasoffkeeMonsanto and Obama: The possible destruction of U.S. agriculture With Obamas signing of the Monsanto Protection Act the US government and FDA must approve anything Monsanto wants. GMO crops are for those that do not know are crops that have their DNA mixed with another species of life. For example they have corn out that has beetle DNA. They also have a lot of crops mixed with the pesticide Roundup which have been shown to cause cancer, tumors, sterility and other health problems in test mice by independent scientist testing from all over the world. The FDA doe not test Monsantos crops but rely on Monsantos reports. We all know what companies said about cigarettes years ago. Monsantos experimental wheat had infected fields in Oklahoma and maybe in 16 states. With this is mind 5 countries have boycotted importing US wheat and the rest may follow. China has burned their fields of GMO corn from the US when they found out what the corn was. Most countries around the world have banned planting of such crops and some like Iceland even threaten prison sentences. Scientists around the world have been warning governments that we have no idea what could result from these practices, they could produce mutated crops, insects or other problems well as health issues. The US is the main country that allows the use of these experimental crops. There are thousands of GMO products that were never FDA approved in your stores and have been for years which could be related in the rates of diseases and health issues rising in the US but has not been proven as of yet that I know of. Scientist from around the US have went to the FDA and warned of the dangers of GMO in the late 90s and early 2000s and the transcript for the meeting is on the FDA website. These crops are cross pollinating and can spread from filed to field and since this has a Monsantos patent and field that has this crop in it will be required to pay Monsanto for it. It is already happening. There was a bill in Congress a few weeks ago that would allow each state to have GMO products labeled if wanted but they voted against it even though almost every state and most people in the U.S. wanted this bill. Please do your research and find out for yourselves. My un-watered version of this story is at: https://www.facebook.com/TO DD5209/posts/1015172761066473 4 Thanks Todd D Perry BushnellOpposed to library privatizationThe Sumter County Commissioners are proposing that we have one particular for profit management company from Maryland contract with the county and manage our Sumter County library system. This company is in business to make a profit, Private for profit management companies make money by promising to save lots of money and make contracts with local governments. Unless, every single service, now being provided, is included in this contract, the management company can tell a visitor Sorry, we do not provide that service any more. It is not included in our contract. The company can request fees. For example, they might ask $.50 fee to take out a book on a CD or tape. The company would require the cost of a county paid employee(s) to monitor the companies performance and compliance with the contract. Our County libraries back bone is the excellent dedicated library employees and our volunteers. Our library employees did not go into this field to become rich. Career service library employees can probably look forward to a small (in a country wide comparison) pension for their service when they retire. We would lose our knowable dedicated library employees. As a rehire, a library employee would most likely lose his/her benefits and/or pay level. Sumter County employees who would have to ask themselves, What would keep our own jobs safe and from being contracted out? Library volunteers perform varying services, depending on what is needed at the community and the county levels. I love volunteering for my local library. I will not volunteer my services to helpfor profit company make money. What about the hours of free services volunteers have provided throughout the county library system? At minimum wage, it would be a very large sum of money. In all of the weeks gathering signatures on petitions and talking to people county wide, I have yet to find a single person wanting this proposal. Why arent the commissioners listening to their constituents? Why are the commissioners having a planning meeting on this important countywide issue in a nongovernmental building several miles from most of their central and southern Sumter County constituents?

Americans unite when disaster hits a region or community in our nation. Oklahomas recent tornados have brought hardship to many families, and nationwide Americans have sent in supplies to help. The animals that have survived the tornadoes may be homeless now, but are being cared for by many humane organizations. Pet food has been donated in tons to help. Americans are compassionate people, always there to help in need. But, lets not forget the need in our own home town. Our local Humane Society/SPCA is also in need of pet food. Caring for large numbers of orphaned dogs and cats until they find their forever home is expensive. Not only must the Society feed the animals, but they pay for their medical needs too. And they also provide pet food for their Kibbles On Wheels program that helps low income families struggling to feed their pets. The Humane Society/SPCAs food supply is at an all time low, and they are asking for the communitys help. We are a compassionate nation, and rise to the occasion to help those in need. Sumter residents can rise to the occasion and help our local Humane Society/SPCA in need by donating dog and cat food to the organization. Convenient drop off points are: in Bushnell Willy Nilly Feed Store and Prosthetics Research Specialists; in Lake Panasoffkee The Humane Society/SPCA: In Wildwood Bone Crazy Grooming; In The Villages Buffalo Ridge Veterinary Clinic, Paws Animal Hospital, Whole Earth Pet Supply, and Paws For A Moment Pet Market. Check out the Humane Society/SPCAs website at www.hsspca.org and look into the faces of all the adorable orphaned dogs and cats. They have names and personalities and they deserve to be cared for while they wait to be adopted. This is our community and our Humane Society, and they need our help. Lets all pull together and respond by showing that we care and appreciate the life saving work that they do.
