Wildwood police are hoping that the public can provide some useful information to help solve the robbery of a Wildwood bank last week. A lone suspect robbed the BB&T Bank, at 837 S. Main Street, last Tuesday, Nov. 26. The robbery happened about 3:41 p.m. when there were no customers inside the bank, according to Wildwood police. The suspect entered the bank and presented a handwritten note to the bank teller demanding money. The note demanded that she give him all of the hundreds, fifties and twenties. The note also implied that the suspect had a handgun although no gun was ever displayed. After the teller handed the bank cash to the suspect, he then ordered her to enter the bank vault and shut the door behind her, according to police. The teller obeyed the suspect and entered the vault and shut the door. The suspect then left the bank and fled on foot in an unknown direction. He is believed to be between 5 feet 5 and 5 Portions of central and southern Sumter County have historically had problems when water levels rise. Lands roughly east of Bushnell and near Center Hill that are incorporated in Sumter Countys Big Prairie watershed have been notorious for flooding during high water periods caused by heavy rains or storms. In past years, the county along with the Southwest Water Management District have attempted to address and curb flooding issues in the area. It was a main focus of drainage work back in the 1980s when the now defunct Sumter County Water Authority attempted to relieve flooding conditions throughout the watershed. But water control problems still linger and they are back for discussion and review. The water district is gathering information to improve identification of flood prone areas in the Big Prairie watershed.

Unfortunately, the Raiders ended their year when a strong St. Petersburg Lakewood High team beat them 27-21 in the Class 5A Region Final at Raiders Field. South Sumter ended with a 121 record while Lakewood is now 10-3. Lakewood will play Clay Friday in a state semifinal game. Clay beat Pensacola Catholic 9-7 Friday night. Sadly, the game was marred by displays of unsportsmanlike and selfish behavior by Lakewood. South Sumter Head coach Inman Sherman said there was bad blood and there was no shaking of hands because that might have evolved into a brawl. Sherman knew his young men showed the class out there and wished Lakewood had acted properly. We played a good football team but a classless football team, said Sherman. Im proud of the way our guys played. Im proud of the way they acted. I wouldnt trade a one of them for any of their kids. We will play them again. This group set a standard. They set a new bar for another team to try to reach. We are extremely proud of them. I think the young kids have learned a lot this year. Lakewood scored the winning touchdown when their quarterback, Ryan Davis, scored on a one-yard sneak with 8:27 left. Lakewoods Chris Davis intercepted Raider quarterback Levi Sapp late in the contest and that sewed up the victory for the visiting Spartans. Lakewood scored first when Davis hut Darquez Watson for a 20-yard touchdown. The extra point kick failed. The score came with 7:52 left in the first quarter. J.T. Taylor blocked a punt and recovered it at Lakewoods 22yardline. The Raiders couldnt capitalize when they fumbled the ball away at the Spartans five-yard line. The Spartans scored when Davis ran eight yards for a score with 10:40 left in the second quarter. Davis passed to Watson for the two-point conversion. The Raiders scored when Levi Sapp hit Chase Kelly for a 27yard touchdown with 8:46 left in the second quarter.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER5, 2013 A great season, a great coach Football season came to an end for the South Sumter Raiders last Friday night at Raider field when the team was finally shaken from its no loss season. The final score of 27-21 may have ended the Raiders hopes of advancing to the state semifinals but the Raiders ending Friday night was far from a defeat. This years team has been amazing and the Raider players can be proud of a great season of playing quality high school football. The team members arent the only ones who should be proud. We know Head Coach Inman Sherman also is very proud of the season results and of his players. Sherman is a very special coach who has taken many a South Sumter football team on to district, regional and state games and titles. Hes been with the Raiders for three decades and during that time, hes always made it clear that its not about him, its about his players. He has always directed the spotlight to his players and away from himself. He is a coach to be admired and emulated. Throughout the decades, Sherman has been key in producing many winning seasons yet his focus is steadfast, its always on his players. Hes no braggart about his own abilities although he could be if he wanted to be. He has a lot to be proud of. Not just from this years team but from past teams and from past players. Sherman is a quality coach that has his head screwed on right. Sumter County is as proud of him as he is of his players.BEYOND SUMTER The Voice of Sumter County since 1881The editorial opinion expressed in the Sumter County Times is the opinion of the news staff of this newspaper.PublisherGerry Mulligan Regional Manager John Provost Editor Bob Reichman204 E.

HS/SPCA The year was 2002, a year that lives in infamy, or at least extreme annoyance, in my daughter, Alisons, life. That was the year of the cursed perfect turkey. Prior to that, Alisons Thanksgiving turkeys ranged from dry to just OK. But in 2002 she took a madcap leap of faith, risked everything and brined the bird and it came out brown and crisp on the outside, moist and succulent on the inside. Perfection with drumsticks and wings. Her husband heaped praises on her, and may or may not have offered to do the dishes. I think they lived in Maryland at the time, which isnt pertinent to the story. What is pertinent is the fact that Alison roasted a perfect turkey in 2002 and where do you go from there? In 2003, despite following the exact same brine recipe and using the exact same pots and pans, that years turkey was not perfect, which to Alison equaled failure. Thanksgiving 2003 was deemed a total, humiliating defeat and came complete with minor hissy fits and a major meltdown of mammoth proportion. (I swear I dont know where she gets her flair for melodrama.) I recall her describing mashed potatoes on the ceiling and sweet potatoes in her eyebrows, of weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. I dont have a play-by-play of years 2004 to the present, although one of those years she and my granddaughter spent the holiday with us in Florida while her Army husband was deployed overseas. That was the year we were to eat at the restaurant my husbands Aunt Pat worked at and the year of reprieve for Alisons striving for turkey perfection. However, Aunt Pat got sick and Alison was nominated to cook a turkey, which was awesomely delicious according to everyone who ate it except Alison who knew it was not even close to the Perfect Turkey of and, therefore, was a failure and, therefore, so was she. A few days ago, she and I were texting about turkeys. Once again she was planning to brine hers, plus it came injected with some flavor-enhancing solution that she hoped would help, but I could tell that her hope was hopeless. With texting its hard to discern emotion, but I just knew her texts contained much sighing and hand wringing. I told her, Its tough having a perfect turkey to have to live up to. Stupid perfection. A few years ago, she told me she used to love Thanksgiving the planning and shopping and prepping, the smells, even the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving show where they serve popcorn and toast. Now Ive created all these expectations of perfection, but the problem is, no one but me cares, she said. Worst of all, since Im never happy with the results, I face the next Thanksgiving with more resolve to finally get it right. Except I fail again and then I hate myself and vow to make the next year better. Its a vicious cycle. She curses her perfect turkey in 2002 because it has forever set the bar of turkey expectations too high to reach. She keeps striving to replicate it, but falls short every year. Her turkey despair reminds me of the despair of some Christians who continually strive for perfect obedience in an attempt to please God and continually miss reaching it. The harder my daughter tries to make a perfect turkey, the more discouraged she is when she cant do it. Likewise, the more obedient I try to be, the more aware I am of how obedient Im not, and the more discouraged I become. Unless, that is, I remember that its not my obedience and goodness that God counts, but the obedience of Jesus. Its not my perfection, but his that hes given me. Thats the gospel of grace, that God has counted me perfect because I trust in the perfection of his Son. If I know that God loves me simply because I trust in Jesus and that his love isnt based on my obedience or goodness, it frees me up to try my hardest but not to fear failing, because in his eyes I will never be a failure. He counts me as perfect, as perfect as Alisons turkey of Thats what grace is, covering a multitude of sins. Gravy does that, too.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

PAGEA12SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER5, 2013 It was a on a weekend when the countys Animal Services facility was closed, and also would be closed on Monday was Veterans Day. But the good Samaritan that found the baby puppy needed help now. The puppy was so young, too young to be without his mother, and yet here he was, found in the street, alone and scared. Because he was unable to care for the puppy, the Good Samaritan remembered that there is a Florida State Stature called the Save Haven Law. The law allows for unwanted babies to be surrendered at hospitals or fire stations. With no where else to go, the good Samaritan brought the baby puppy to his local fire station. As luck would have it, firefighter and EMT Donald Foster and firefighter and paramedic Will Wilson were on duty. The tiny puppy was filthy and full of fleas, so we gave him a bath and cleaned him up, foster recalls. Foster called his wife Michelle, who immediately fell in love when she saw the helpless little puppy. She took him home, got a crate and filled it with warm blankets, filled his tummy with puppy food, and so began a new beginning for the puppy who was to be named Webster. Webster had his first veterinarian visit where Donnie and Michelle were told that he was just under 6 weeks old when they took him home. Puppies should be with their mothers for a minimum of 8 weeks, with 10 to 12 weeks as ideal. Poor little Webster was way too young to be weaned and on his own. After a complete check up, the Fosters were given medicine for little Webster along with instructions on a path to raising a healthy puppy. Now Webster spends his evenings curled up on the couch with his new family watching TV. Like a good little boy, he follows Michelle around the yard having puppy fun. Webster has a bed in my truck, another bed in Michelles car, and his own bed at home, laughs Foster. Yet at night, if not already sleeping in his comfy crate, you will more than likely find Webster snuggled in bed next to his human mom and dad. These days, Webster is stylish wearing a new camouflage sweater or one of his two Florida State jerseys. Webster has a bright future ahead with a family that will love and care for him, and yes, spoil him a bit too. He is a very lucky little puppy! Not all puppies are as fortunate as Webster. Puppies should never be separated from their canine families at such a young age. The majority of animals in these circumstances do not survive. Little Webster would never have survived alone on the streets for very long. Thanks to one act of kindness from a caring citizen, a baby puppys life was saved and suddenly changed for the better. He has brought joy, love, and a new purpose to Michelle and Donnies life, and all together they have a very happy home.

PAGEA14SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER5, 2013 FROM THE GROUND UP Question: Whats the name of those tall, bright yellow flowering trees I see in yards & landscapes? Answer:I bet you are referring to the Cassia tree, which is also called Cassia bicapsularis or butterfly bush and blooms prolifically with yellow flowers this time of year. It is a host plant for 3 types of Florida butterflies cloudless sulphur, sleepy orange sulphur and orange-barred sulphur. Cassia blooms even resemble yellow butterflies. This is a plant that is just waking up when others are getting ready for winter. These dramatic semi-evergreen plants add great color to a yard. Plant in an area that receives full sun to part sun and is somewhat protected from winds & cold temps. Cassia plants can reach heights of 8-10 feet and will benefit from periodic pruning to reduce growth, while keeping it compact & strong. These pictures were taken in the Sumter County Master Garden Demonstration Garden in Bushnell. For more information on this gorgeous flowering plant http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/st126 Question: My Mexican petunia leaves are have a silvery gray substance on them. What is causing this?Answer:What your Ruellia simplex or Mexican petunia has is damage by eriophyid mites that feed on the plants leaves, causing abnormal plant growth, and white patches on leaves & stems. These mites are too small to be seem by the naked eye. This is not considered a disease but rather a growth distortion caused by these tiny mites. Since Mexican petunias are quite hardy, there is really no treatment. You can try pruning the affected areas or spray the leaves with organic horticulture oil. Question: What are the benefits of horticulture oils you often suggest as treatment for some plant problems? Answer: Horticultural oils are refined mineral oils with impurities removed and an emulsifying agent added that allows the oil to mix with water for application. These oils, which are less toxic & more natural, help control a wide variety of pests that feed of plants. The oil kills the pests by blocking their breathing holes & gumming up their mouthpieces. Neem oil is one of these products and has a naturally occurring pesticide in the seeds; an extract from the seeds is used in the oil. As always, its important to follow label directions for preparation & application.To submit questions to Ask the Master Gardener please call 352-793-2728, Ext. 229 or email us at plantclinic@aol.com UF/IFAS EXTENSION SUMTER COUNTY PLANT CLINIC OPEN TO THE PUBLICBushnell Location: 7620 SR 471, 352-793-2728, Ext. 229, Open Wednesday from 9 until 3 p.m. Villages Location: Sumter County Government Annex, 8033 E CR466, (Corner of Morse Blvd. & 466), 352689-4673, Open Monday & Thursday from 9 until 3 with the exception of the 2nd Thursday of each month when the annex Plant Clinic is closed for the day.

Vendors needed for Master Gardeners plant and garden festival in March Cassia close up Cassia tree Oxfords Theige making name for hometown Wildwood High School graduate Travis Theige is making a name for his high school and hometown of Oxford. Recently elected as the Florida Future Farmers of America Area III state vice-president, hes traveling the nation to promote FFA and agriculture. Theige has been active in FFA at the local, district and state levels. He said he made the decision to join the organization in his freshman year. Encouraged by alumni, he attended the annual state convention in Orlando. After attending my first state convention I realized the FFA is something special and the opportunity to participate was not to be passed up. That was when he set his goal on becoming a state officer. He said he credits the agricultural educators, alumni and supporters in the county and state, for making his dream a reality. I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all those whom supported and helped me in making this dream a reality. I attempted to participate in as many FFA programs as my schedule would allow and to meet as many fellow members and supports as I could. He said his aim was give back to the organization, which truly changed my life by giving me invaluable skills and opportunities. That includes providing him with opportunities to meet others and have an impact on the agricultural industry. I feel absolutely blessed to have the opportunity to serve Florida FFA for the next year and am thankful, more than words can say, to all those who have made this year possible. I am excited for the opportunity to have a chance to interact with some of Floridas 60,000 agriculture students and the nearly17,000 FFA members. Theige said he believes his strengths are being organized and motivated, with a true passion for the agricultural industry, which he sees as a result of his FFA involvement in its competitions and conferences, as well as the Relationships that he has developed while an FFA member. As for the future, he plans to continue his year of service and work meeting as many students as possible and encouraging them to enter the FFA program. His efforts also include working to ensure the future of agriculture. Theige is spending an estimated 320 days during that year, touring and speaking. He plans to attend the University of Florida next fall, where he will major in agricultural communications. He will work toward becoming an agricultural lawyer. This career goal is a direct result of my FFA involvement, which has given me a true passion to do my part in ensuring the future of Agriculture. My hope for the future is increasing the support of American agriculture and the American farmer, to ensure the future of an industry which supplies our necessities on a daily basis. Along with his drive for FFA, Theige enjoys hunting, the Florida Gators and spending quality time with family and friends. He is the son of Lee and Kim Theige of Oxford. His siblings are Tabitha Crenshaw of Wildwood, Kacey Lee of Oxford and Eddie Cantrell of Oxford. Travis Theige is shown at the 85th Florida state FFA convention, after placing third in the state for Extemporaneous Public Speaking CDE.
