The latest proposed pipeline corridor appears to be passing northeast of Center Hill instead of to the southeast as presented in earlier maps. This is the second meeting Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC, held in the county since unveiling plans to build 700 miles of underground natural gas pipeline from northern Alabama to a point south of Orlando. Based on one of the first corridor maps presented by the company, about 30 miles of pipeline would be constructed in Sumter. The pipeline would enter near the northwest corner of Sumter and exit into Lake County south of the intersection of State Road 50 and the Lake/Sumter county line. Sabal Trail representatives have stated on numerous occasions that the 600-wide corridor is subject to change based on what the companys surveyors encounter. Apparently, there is a considerable shift in corridor location in the south half of Sumter County. The first map, presented in October, showed the corridor running southerly through the Half Moon Wildlife Management Area, crossing State Road 44 and continuing through pastures and woodlands until crossing the Outlet River a little to the west of the countys Marsh Bend Park. The route then skirted to the west of most of the residential areas of the Lake Panasoffkee community, then turned east along the north side of the Lake Panasoffkee dredge spoils site before crossing County Road 475. The path then went generally southeasterly crossing US 301 near the intersection in the vicinity of SE 24th Trail. It then continued southeasterly until crossing State Road 470 near Jumper Creek. From that point is where most of the recent changes are found in the corridor. From S.R. 471, the path continues generally southeasterly through It was 11:18 p.m. last Thursday Dec. 12, when Sumter County Fire & EMS responded to a report of a residential structure fire, west of Bushnell. The call came in with possible entrapment in a doublewide mobile home on C.R. 622. When firefighters arrived, the home was already 100 percent involved. Firefighters also faced the grim possibility of a trapped resident. Knowing there was virtually no chance of survival, crews quickly began to extinguish the flames and learned that the resiMARTINSTEELE Times Correspondent Photo by Martin SteeleWith a giant inflatable palm and a beach umbrella, Arbor Villages entry in last Saturdays Wildwood Christmas Parade is all about the Christmas in Florida theme for the event.

A number of floats, vehicles, bicyclists, motorcyclists, equestrians, and marchers made their way through the street to the delight of parade watchers. This years theme Celebrating a Florida Christmaswas amply reflected in the entries featuring both live and inflated palm trees, cedar trees and other seasonal decor unique to the state. It was the societys third year of sponsoring the parade, according to Gidget Gibson, the groups president. While the 24 parade entries were down slightly from last year, she deemed it a great success. The society collected canned goods for entry fees and gave four large boxes of goods to food banks at the First Baptist Church of Wildwood and Grace Tabernacle. We like to have something thats enjoyable as well as beneficial, Gibson said. Its great to see the community get out and get involved, she said, noting that her group is already seeking volunteers to work on next years parade.

The 2013 Hyundai Veloster that Landau was driving was traveling northbound on the interstate exit ramp and continued northbound across S.R. 44. The vehicle hit the curb and then continued northbound onto the north grass shoulder, the report states. The front end of the vehicle then collided with a small tree, overturned and hit a cable box. Landau was transported to the hospital where he later died from injuries sustained in the crash, the report states.

Continuing to the southeast, the corridor crosses County Road 48 northeast of Center Hill, generally cutting through Big Prairie on either side of the highway. The corridor closely parallels the tree line on the northeast side of Snowbird South recreational vehicle park. It continues mostly southeasterly through pastures and passes near the east end of County Road 716 before intersecting the right-of-way of a large electrical transmission line that runs along the eastern boundary of Sumter County. The proposed corridor runs parallel to the power line to a point south of State Road 50 before turning eastward into Lake County. Sabal Trail representatives have commented on numerous occasions that the company generally prefers corridors paralleling existing rights-ofway, such as those for power lines. Property owners along and near the corridor viewed large aerial photographs with the proposed 600-foot-wide corridor marked on the images or view the corridor on large computer displays. Also, Sabal Trail Transmission, LLC, had numerous representatives on hand to answer the publics questions about the project and to garner information about possible issues with the proposed route. Some property owners have been reluctant to voice their concerns about the pipeline project on the record to the press. However, some have commented to the Times that theyre concerned about disruptions on their property, the potential for livestock getting loose during construction and environmental damage. Less than thrilled was how one property owner expressed feelings about having the corridor on their land. While some have expressed concerns about the risk of possible gas explosions like the one that recently occurred with an old gas pipeline in a northern state, others have said theyre concerned about the potential damage to local roads because of construction traffic. Company representatives have continued to state that there might be many changes before final approval of the 50foot-wide permanent right-of-way for the pipeline. The final right-of-way will be subject to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval of the companys application for the project, according to Sabal Trail representative Andrea Grover. The agency could suggest that the company study corridors other than the one being considered. The company expects to file the final application about November of 2014, Grover said. The construction is scheduled for completion in May of 2017. The pipeline will benefit the county, first by bringing in a number of workers and hiring local workers for the construction, she said. The pipeline will also add to the countys tax revenue. More can be said about the economic benefits after final selection of the right-of-way, Grover said. Also, there are op portunities for discussions with other potential gas customers. Surveying of the corridor will likely continue for a couple of months into next year, she said. In the meantime, there is the possibility of another major shift in corridor location, according to some of the personnel at the meeting. Engineers are considering shifting the proposed corridor east of Lake Panasoffkee to a path across some large tracts of ranch and undeveloped lands in the northwest quarter of the county. This route would eventually connect to a large electrical transmission line that passes between Wildwood and Coleman before connecting with the power line running along the Lake/Sumter county lines.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013 Time for blue ribbon dreams By BRENDA LOCKLEAR While its still months away, its definitely time to plan and create a time to dream of ribbons red, white and blue. Did you find a new recipe that the family looks forward to at each gathering? Are you proud that smooth design on a woodworking project, or do you love to take photos? If you have a hobby or a family skill thats been passed down, you might want to think about entering at least one of your projects in the annual Family Living Expo in March. The expo is set-up each year, in conjunction with the county fair and gives residents a chance to vie for a ribbon and exhibit their talents from quilts and homemade clothing to home grown produce, fresh eggs, photos, crafts, woodwork items and much more. If you can make it, chances are good that coordinators can place it. Sumter County residents are invited to enter their projects in the expo, where they will be judged, earn a ribbon and then put on display during the week of the fair. The expo serves as a kind of sampling of Sumter County flavor, when it comes to local talent. And everyone earns a ribbon either red, white or blue (based on the Dutch system). Categories include canning, cooking and baking, home dcor, needlework, collections, oil painting and drawing, arts, crafts, photography, writing, scrapbooking and agriculture production. The categories are so varied, that residents can enter a clothing project that theyve made from scratch or a store bought item that theyve embellished. School and Sunday school teachers! Have your students done projects this year? Think about entering them. Years ago, the then 4-H assistant, Linda Burt, suggested I enter some of the projects the children in my Sunday school class had completed during the year. Weve been doing so ever since. The kids love to see their items on display, as they visit the fair. And they love seeing them on display in church, where they can share their ribbons with congregation members. As a matter of fact, thats how I ended up as superintendent of the adult expo. I was working on the childrens display, when a series of events led to me volunteering. Are you in a quilting, sewing or reading club? Think about doing something as a group. The Family Living Expo is open to everyone, of any age. It doesn't matter if youre a youth, teen or adult; in 4-H or out; in school or out, this is a competition for everybody in the county! You've still got another couple of months before the county fair starts, but it's definitely time to get started on your project or projects you can enter as many categories as you like. You can find the categories, entry form and rules on our website at www.sumtercountytimes.com under Community Links at the bottom of the homepage or on the county fair website at www.sumterfair.net You can also pick a copy up at the Sumter County Times office or the Sumter County Extension Office. There are two sets of rules one for children and teens, another for adults.If you can't find a category for what you create, chances are good we can find a place to fit it in.Brenda Locklear is a staff writer/blogger for the Sumter County Times. She is also the superintendeant for the adult family living competition.

The laughter and smiles of a child are worth far more than the amount of money that was spent on the gift. However, many times that moment of joy is short lived and soon forgotten when something else comes along that gets the childs attention. If we as adults really want to give a child a gift that will last and be cherished for a lifetime we need to give them the gift of our time and attention. Spending time with a child is something that will remain with them long after the moment has ended. Read a story, take a walk, share stories of your own childhood, these are gifts that money cant buy. When children recall events of their home-life in school is usually involves time that was spent with them by an adult in their life. We went fishing, We went camping, I helped my Mama wash the dishes are activities children remember. I encourage your readers to remember it isnt the quantity of gifts given to children but the quality of the gift given that is most important. If we want to really enforce the idea that children are our future then what better gift can be given to our future than that of our time? Sincerely, Ruth Williams Wildwood TeacherTeachers honoredWebster Elementary is proud to recognize and honor the 20132014 Teacher and Non-Instruct of the year.

Written in the 1940s, its from the point of view of a homesick World War II G.I. fighting overseas somewhere, dreamin of a place I love, even more than I usually do. And although I know its a long road back, I promise you, Ill be home for Christmas...if only in my dreams. As Christmas songs go, this is not holly jolly, ho-ho-ho or even joy to the world. This one is melancholy and wistful, sadly wistful. He wants to be home. Several years ago, I met a man named Gator who also wanted to be home. I was working on a story about an amazing woman named Lynda who feeds homeless and hungry people every single week. Gator was one of the homeless, living in a camp in the woods. He had come to Lyndas weekly dinner in the park, and when he saw my notebook and pen he wanted to tell me his story. He said at one time he had a home, but because of circumstances, which he didnt elaborate on, he had to leave it. Not just his house, but his home. Home is where you feel safe and sheltered and connected. Its your security. Its your place, your warm bed and hot water, your TV with all your favorite shows, your fridge where you can store your lunch for the next day, keep your ice cream from melting and your milk from spoiling. Its where you go to get away from the mosquitoes and the heat and humidity, the cold and the rain. Its where you have a closet for your coat, an attic to store your Christmas ornaments, a garage for your car. Gator told me about his camp, about how everyone looked out for each other and shared with each other because they were all in the same boat; they were all homeless together. Every night theyd build a fire to stay warm. He said it wasnt too difficult to get food, although very difficult to get a shower. He really, really wanted to take a shower. When I met him he had been homeless for about six months. He said it wasnt too bad, although he immediately added, I hate it. I think I first met Gator in 2009, and Id occasionally hear from him after that. I had given him my phone number at work, and hed call to check in. He had a part-time job, and he was glad for that. But he wanted a home. Home is the place you want to be when you feel lost and afraid, sick or hurt. Or cold, tired, hungry, angry, overwhelmed, bruised or battered. I dont think there are too many people who dont long for a safe place, for home. Not just a house, but a home. The story of Christmas is the story of home, of the place we long for, deep inside ourselves. Its as if God created us with a sense that this planet on which we live is not truly our home, but that home is somewhere else and it is. But weve been separated from it, and as hard as we might try to get there on our own, we cant. Instead, God sent His Son to get us, to pave the way to bring us home. The way home is through the Cross. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son...not to condemn the world and us but to put it and us right again and to offer us a forever home (John 3:16-18, my paraphrase). If you Google home for Christmas more than 12,600,000 results come up. Its the title of a 2010 movie and Christmas albums from Susan Boyle, N Sync, Sheryl Crow, Hall & Oates, Amy Grant and Celtic Woman. The song, Ill be Home for Christmas has been recorded by Bing Crosby and Josh Groban, Carrie Underwood and Michael Buble, Blake Shelton and Brad Paisley. Its the longing of the heart to be home. The good news is: Jesus himself is our home, our home for Christmas and beyond, and not merely something thats only in our dreams. P .S. I heard from Gator several months ago. He called to say he wasnt homeless any longer.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

PAGEA8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013 Lisa Ratliff watched her daughter and daughters friend string popcorn and make homemade tree ornaments last Saturday It was their second time at the Dade Battlefield Historic Sites Christmas on the Florida Frontier. They have such nice events here, Ratliff said. We try to come to every event they have. With home schooling her child, the events provide a great opportunity to expand on what she is learning at home, she said. Central Florida residents stepped back in time for a bit at special event in Bushnell. Visitors to the battlefield were treated to much more than just historical demonstrations and displays this was a hands on event where adults and children got to participate in crafts and activities that would have been common at Christmas in the early days of Florida settlement. A very industrious group of folks filled picnic benches set up for making all sorts of Christmas items. Some were busy making Christmas ornaments from punched tin, strung popcorn and dried fruit. Others were making wreaths, corn husk dolls, clothes pin dolls, and soap carvings. Amanda Wynne was busy attaching yarn hair to the rag doll her six-year-old daughter made. She came from Tampa for the event and is also home schooling her kids. Im enjoying it, she said of her first time at the event. Its the best thing ever. While one group intently worked on rag dolls, others tried their hand at making candles by dipping wicks into melted wax or learning about homemade toys Volunteers portraying settlers and cooking over an open fire were sharing popcorn and wassle a mulled hot cider drink made with spices and fruit juice. For those wanting even more history, re-enactors depicting soldiers and Seminoles from the time period around 1835 were on hand to show their camp and gear and tell what frontier life was like. A somewhat unique presentation on Floridas early turpentine production also drew a crowd of interested visitors. Art Clothier, whos week-day job is county forester with the Florida Division of Forestry, displayed the specialized hand tools and explained the rigorous work involved in collection and distillation of the pine sap into turpentine. Inside the park lodge, visitors seeking a more energetic activity got some instruction in the basics of square dancing. As dark fell, candles and lanterns were lighted and the work continued on. In the area adjacent to the park bandshell and lodge, luminaries lighted the grounds while a circle of musicians with banjos, dulcimers and fiddles played traditional music for crowds enjoyment. Park Manager Bill Gruber said about 400 visitors attended this second year event. We had a lot of positive feedback from people as they left the park, Gruber said. It was kind of a low-key, family event. Its a wonderful thing to see all the young people taking to the hands on craft. The site staff is trying to provide more events, branching out to activities appropriate for the venue, he said. He praised the volunteers who worked on this and other events. With a very small park staff, it takes many volunteers to make these events possible, Gruber said.

Organizers of the event hid prizes in the sand pile. LAURA VICKERS CHRISTMAS PARTY Bailey Owens, Webster, is all accessorized for her turn in the photo booth at the Laura Vickers Childrens Christmas event in Sumterville. The photo booth was a rather popular item for both kids and adults among all the activities during the event. Kristi Bowen, Coleman, is actually enjoying that cotton candy even with the bright sun at the Laura Vickers Childrens Christmas event in Sumterville. Organizers of the Laura Vickers Childrens Christmas event in Sumterville provided almost a thousand kids with presents and a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, It also was a great a photo opportunity for many parents. Shown with the Clauses are the Vegas, of Webster and Bushnell. Left to right are siblings Omar, Jasmine, Masie and their little cousin Bentley. A little grown-up help was sometimes needed for the youngsters building wooden tic-tac-toe games, during the Laura Vickers Childrens Christmas event in Sumterville. Home Depot donated the game kits and provided tools for the building. Unseasonably warm temperatures last Saturday did little to thwart the enthusiasm of the hundreds of local families attending the annual Laura Vickers Christmas for Kids party, in Sumterville. By the noon opening of the free party, a mass of eager children and adults had gathered to enjoy the food, gifts, play areas and fun activities set-up in the Langley Health Services parking lot. Its been an annual event for ten years. Laura Vickers, at the time an employee in the Healthy Start Program at Langley, started the first party for underprivileged kids in the program, according to Nathan Overstreet, director of development and community relations for Langley. The young employee was tragically killed by a drunk driver a month or so after that first party, Overstreet said. Langley staffers and volunteers decided to keep holding the party since then. It grew, then it grew some more, Overstreet said. About 2,000 people attended Saturdays party. Volunteers registered almost 1,000 kids under the age of 13 to see Santa and Mrs. Claus and get a gift. Every child left with a toy appropriate for their age and gender, Overstreet said. And, they also gave away about 80 bicycles. Beth Brisco, Webster, was there for the first time with her son Jay, who was one of the lucky kids at the drawings for bikes. Its awesome we had a blast, She said. Lamar Hooten, Bushnell was also came for the first time with his two kids. It sure is nice, He said. Nice for the kids and the adults. While Christmas tunes played from a mobile sound system, the kids had many activities for their enjoyment including a giant sandpile to dig in for hidden prizes, eight inflatable bounce houses and slides and a workshop area where they could build their own wooden tic-tac-to game. A photo booth drew a crowd of both adults and kids, many of the latter digging into a trunk of props just to get that special image. And, there was food. Volunteers cooked about 2,000 hotdogs at the event. Plus there was cotton candy, snow cones, cupcakes, popcorn and cookies. Its all done with volunteers and donations by fund raising or direct gifts, Overstreet said. Volunteers come from throughout the community, including local schools, to help make the party a success. Langley staffers also volunteer their unpaid time for the project. The sponsors are what makes the event possible, Overstreet said. We really appreciate our sponsors, including our own Thomas E. Langley Medical Foundation. MARTINSTEELE Times Correspondent

PAGEA12SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013 The Wildwood Woman Club recently treated participants to their 27th Annual Holiday Tour of Homes. This years tour included three Wildwood area homes, closing with a tea hosted by club members at the Wildwood Methodist Fellowship Hall. One of those homes, just across the street from the church, is the Barwick house, an 1890s vintage, early Florida-style home that was built by one of the citys early developers. It has been restored by Cindy and Craig Griffin. The exterior of their home looks very much like old Florida, but the interior is decorated with unique re-purposed pieces and bright colors. The original structure of the house has been preserved for historic purposes. Other stops on the tour included the home of Christina and Josh Perry and the home of Roxanne Stafford. Proceeds from tour ticket sales help fund a number of projects, according to member Elberta Ritchie. The group provides two matching fund scholarships for county high school graduates, supports Hacienda Girls Ranch, provides Second Chance scholarships for adult women who are re-entering the work force, supports honor banquets for county high school scholars and other community projects. The historic Barwick House, Wildwood, was one of three homes on display for the Wildwood Womans Club annual Holiday Tour of Homes. This late 1800s, traditional old-Florida style dwelling has been renovated as the home of Cindy and Craig Griffin.

This late 19th century home, open for the annual Holiday Tour of Homes, has been renovated by owners Cindy and Craig Griffin. The high ceilings in the 1890s vintage Barwick house provide ample room for taller Christmas trees as shown in this traditional dining room displayed during the annual Holiday Tour of Homes, sponsored by the Wildwood Womans Club.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013, PAGEA13 Christmas is part of Granville Beville 2234, Bushnell UDC program The Granville Beville 2234, Bushnell Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy met at the home of Joyce White in Bushnell for a meeting on Saturday, Dec 07, 2013. Confederate Memorial Day Service was discussed for Saturday, April 26, 2014 to be held at the Greenwood Cemetery. The chapter is raising money to place a monument to the Confederate Soldiers buried at the Linden Cemetery. As a fund raiser, a cookbook was put together and is for sell for $10.00 each. The program for the meeting was on Robert E. Lee, Children and Christmas. President Theodore Roosevelt once described General Lee as a courageous man with great military skills and leadership. But General Lee had a love for his own children and children he came in contact with. He received a letter from three little girls wondering why Santa Claus had not come to see the little rebel children for four Christmas Eves. Their Auntie had told them he would not let him cross the lines. They knew he would not lie to them if they ask why. General Lee replied to their letter in this way: One night he saw the funniest-looking old fellow in a sleigh in the air. He called out Halt, Halt to him. He told him he could not go any further south. This funny fellow said I have toys for all the children, what will they do? General Lee said I love the little children and know they would want me to do my duty. He told him to return to Baltimore and sell the toys and with the money buy medicines, bandages, ointments, and delicacies for our sick and wounded men. Do it and do it quicklyit will be all right with the children. Santa with his hand to his hat in true military style, said: I obey orders, General, and off he went and early that morning returned with the medicine, clothing and food for the wounded and tired soldiers who were fighting for them and that Santa had not forgotten them. Children held a special place in General Lees heart with his own. Members, Carol Tomlinson, Peggy Griffin, Irish Wolf and Jessica Hoag will traveled to Gamble Plantation at Ellenton, Florida on Sunday, December 08, 2013 to serve as docents for Plantation Christmas.

How do I find out if I have canker? Answer:The Great Sumter Citrus Canker Scare of 2013! Our Plant Clinics have been overrun with concerned residents that are worried about canker due to that article. First, there are a myriad of reasons that a citrus tree will drop fruit not just canker. Second, that article was referring to a county in northwest Florida not Sumter County. If you are concerned about your citrus, take samples (leaves and fruit double bagged in a zip-type plastic bag) to one of the UF/IFAS Sumter County Extension Plant Clinics. Do not mail samples. Our agent will diagnose the samples and we will contact you. To ease your fears, we have not received any samples so far that have canker.Question:I have a plant in my landscape that is going to need cold protection; it is a Zone 10 plant. What do I need to do?Answer:When you hear a forecast that tells you a frost or freeze is headed your way it is time to plan. You can buy frost cloth (notice the name frost not freeze cloth) to help protect during a frost. But you can use old sheets and blankets also during a frost or freeze; do not use plastic. The key is to cover the plant to the ground and secure the covering with rocks at the base of the plant. Just placing a cover on top of the plant is not going to protect it. The day before the freeze, water the plant thoroughly. After you have covered the plant and night comes, the moisture in the ground will release and actually raise the temperature around the covered plant slightly. You can also use Christmas lights and other types of lighting under the cover just be very careful not to use anything that could start a fire; do not use LED lights as they do not generate heat. Also, mulching the plants well with organic mulch can help; do not pile the mulch up around the base of the plant.Question:Can you identify this plant? I want to make sure it is not invasive before I plant it.Answer:I had to look carefully at your picture because there are 2 very similar plants and one is invasive (Caprobrotus edulis). What you appear to have is commonly called Ice Plant (Delosperma cooperi) and it is not invasive. Climate Zones for this plant are 6-10 (in Sumter you are in 9A and the far south portion of the county is 9B). It blooms summer and fall, takes full sun to part sun, very fast grower, and has a moderate drought tolerance. Ice Plant height is less than 1 foot and it spreads 1-2 feet. This low maintenance plant is popular on the coast due to its salt spray tolerance. UF/IFAS Extension Master Gardeners thank you for being so diligent to make sure a plant is not invasive before planting.To submit questions to Ask the Master Gardener please call 352-793-2728, Ext. 229 or email us at plantclinic@aol.com.

Susan League UF/IFAS Extension ASK THE MASTER GARDENER Ice Plant A new series of nine educational videos are now available to the public, thanks to University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences faculty members. County faculty from UF/IFAS central district prepared proposals for the videos that were reviewed by district technology experts, state specialists and instructional designers. The videos are available at http://www.youtube.com/user/I FASCDistrict/videos. Seven of the videos are in English; two are in Spanish. The video titles include: *Women and Money: Unique Issues *Working with 4-H Club Officers *Subsurface Drip Irrigation *Retrofit Your Irrigation *Soil Sampling *Plastic Pollution *Nourishing Our Frail Elders *Qu es 4-H? (What is 4-H?) *Alimentacin Saludable Jardinera contenedor (Healthful eating using container gardens) Tim Momol, a UF/IFAS professor and director for Extensions central district, said officials hope the videos will prove helpful to the public, and he noted that they are available for use by those who handle websites, social media accounts, online newsletters and the like. The new videos join more than 200 videos already housed on the central districts YouTube channel. Tom Obreza, senior associate dean for UF/IFAS Extension, lauded the Extension team from the central district that created such high-quality educational tools. Through real-world examples, the videos teach important concepts that enhance the lives of Floridians and their environment, he said. UF/IFAS Extension Dean Nick Place echoed Obrezas sentiment. These peer-reviewed videos are an excellent means of extending knowledge and information to clientele in a highly applicable format in both English and Spanish, he said. These videos will enable many more people access to the educational resources of UF/IFAS Extension. UF/IFAS Extensions central district includes Flagler, Marion, Putnam, Sumter, Hernando, Orange, Seminole, Volusia, Lake, Osceola and St. Johns counties. New educational videos available from state agency Seven of the videos are in English; two are in Spanish.

The gates open at 9 a.m. and it is open to the public. There is a viewing area with bleachers on the stream, at the pink trail. Entry fee is $20 for horse and rider. Spectator fee is $10. This includes a country lunch at high noon. Horse Coggins papers must be presented for each horse at the entry gate. Florida helmet rules apply. Its a ride for the cowboys and cowgirls who enjoy getting dirty, while having fun a challenge Bubble Gum Ranch is up to providing. The ride includes plenty of water, mud and difficult obstacles. It is not the ordinary woods trail ride, its very challenging. I have had several experiences being in the woods and somehow wandered off the beaten path. Some of you may have been in the same situation. You do not panic, you grab your compass. You allow your horse to proceed to direct you through the trees, around rocks, stumps crossing muddy waters and other natural challenges, to get you back on the right path, said event coordinator Judi Moran. Its a preparation for trail riders to be able to take a route in the forest that may not be pleasant, but necessary; especially after a hard rain. Trudging across a creek, river or stream will be a good experience for your horse. We practice these obstacles until all hesitation and fear are gone, she said, adding it can lead to a new bond and trust, between horse and riders as they practice the natural obstacles. Moran said its not just a trail ride, but a teaching and learning experience; one that will encourage you to come back. This adventure will always be exciting for you and your horse. So cowboy up, try Bubble Gum Ranchs Horse Challenge Mud Run, you wont be disappointed! A 14-obstacle Open Field Timed Trail Course was added to the November event. Riders ranged from seven years to fifty years old. Some of the obstacles were the Deer Walk Through, The Martin Maze, Mailbox Surprise, Flat Bridge, a Western Riding Pattern, Wagon Wheel Spin, Ring Hanging and more. When the lunch bell rang, the riders enjoyed a hardy country lunch under the beautiful, majestic oaks, before heading back to the trails. Future rides will included a timed event on the new serpentine Blue Trail Silver and Gold Treasure Hunt with rewards. Plans are also in the works for a 10-acre Mini Horse Carting Event. Morans friends and neighbors assist, while the 4-H Muckateers and Sumter County Special Olympic Equestrian Team work parking and check-in. Bubble Gum Ranch is located in Bushnell on C.R. 631 C, off 476 B, near the National Cemetery. For more information contact Moran at 352-279-4001.

Installed to the Hurricane Codes Ibelieve in the spirit of Christmas, and I believe in Santa. Through good deeds, and lending a helping hand to others in need, the spirit of Christmas stays alive. For those who choose to give of themselves and spread happiness and joy, in my eyes, they are living Santas. There is much need in this world, and yes, in our community too. We dont have to go far to make our world a better place. Lets start with our community. I once read on a sign, A life of purpose is the purpose of life. Find your purpose in life. What are you passionate about? Then do whatever you can to support and elevate that purpose. The people at the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County and the people involved with Florida Disaster Animal Response and Transport know their purpose in life. It is to help homeless, sick and injured animals. But not only are they helping these animals, they are helping the people who will eventually adopt these homeless animals. We hear from so many people who have opened their homes and hearts to these animals, about the special love they share with their pets, and how they have brought so much joy into their lives. I understand because my own pets give me so much love and happiness. And isnt sharing love and spreading joy what Christmas and Santa is all about? Isnt it about celebrating Jesus birth by spreading love and joy to all? So how can we keep the spirit of Christmas alive not just in the month of December, but throughout the year? We each need to make a conscious decision to lead a life of compassion, and to respect, appreciate, and help those in need. If your passion is helping animals, then support your local humane organizations. Year round, the Humane Society/SPCA needs volunteers to help care for the animals. There is always a need for dog and cat food. They need volunteers to help in the office, and they need monetary donations. The organization has grown over the years, but so has the need. Still there are so many animals that are abandoned, lost, sick or injured, or just not able to be taken care of by their owners. The Humane Society/SPCA offers them a safe haven. There they can stay, safe and cared for, until they are adopted into a new family. Peace on earth. Good will to all. Love and Joy. We hear these words every Christmas season. Lets spread the good will and love and joy we all feel in our hearts today, to all year long, and every year until there truly is peace on earth for all.
