BOB REICHMAN/ Sumter County TimesWith aboundingly blue skies, plant lovers were in full force Saturday at the annual UF/IFAS Master Gardener Plant and Garden Festival at the Wildwood Community Center. The event featured a wide variety of plants, trees, garden items and pottery to name a few. See more photos inside this edition. Thursday, March 20, 2014Volume 128 Number 12Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES INSIDE INSIDE QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY In the Wildwood race Plenty of plants for sale ... Scavangers descend on Panasoffkee ...Dozens of vultures annoy resident Theyre up there on just about any day the large, dark forms of vultures soaring over Sumter Countys ranches, woods and neighborhoods. And, like most birds, they will seek a place to roost at the end of the day. For Lake Panasoffkee retiree Rosalie May, thats a reason for concern because a number of the feathered scavengers apparently like her backyard. For months, vultures have used trees at the back of her lot on County Road 667 as a roost. Theyve typically been coming in to roost about 5 p.m. and fly out about 8 a.m., May said. She estimates that there might be 25 to 30 birds at the time in the trees. Her son Orren lives close by on the same street and estimates that there could be as many as 35 to 40 perched in the trees at times. Last Thursday, there was a dozen black vultures one of the two varieties found in Florida by about 5 p.m. A relative of nobler raptors such as hawks, owls and eagles, vultures can weigh up to five pounds and have a wingspan of five feet. They are noted for their ability to find dead animal carcasses, even when they cant see them. Having the animals lurking over her backyard raised so much concern for May that she spent $900 to have their roost tree removed. That didnt seem to help as the birds just went to trees about 40 feet or so from their previous perch. For the time being there havent been too many problems, according to the Mays. They sometimes get on the house roof and created a considerable mess by defecating on Orrens pickup truck twice in one day. But, theyve both seen what the vultures can do. Before she bought the house about 18 months ago, it was vacant for a number of years, May said. New Cow Palace approved at $2.5 million It was a stroll through history recently as hundreds of visitors attended the annual World War II commemorative weekend event at Dade Battlefield Historic Site in Bushnell. An estimated 1,000 people entered the gates as reenactors or spectators for the event, according to park manager Bill Gruber. Weapons, tents, gear, uniforms and military transportation from the World War II era are on display during the two-day event March 7 and 8, with 100 reenactors who have stepped into roles from a time long When this years annual county fair ended on Saturday, March 15, construction work is now expected to begin on a new Cow Palace the the county fairgrounds. Late last month, the County Commission approved hiring Tucker Construction and Engineering Inc., of Winter Haven, for the project. The old Cow Palace was torn down last year after commissioners agreed that the building would require too many renovations to be practical. Tucker Construction was one of eight companies considered for the project. Originally estimated to cost $2.1 million, plans were upgraded for the new facility so that it can additionally be used as an emergency hurricane shelter for the county, said County Administrator Bradley Arnold. Currently, South Sumter High School is classified as a hurricane shelter during emergencies. By ensuring that the fairgrounds building meets stricter building standards so it can be used as the main shelter in southern Sumter, it means the high school can move to a secondary status for emergencies. In the past, school had to be cancelled, this would provide more flexibility, Arnold said. The Cow Palace designs were also enhanced to provide a new location for the fair office which is currently housed inside the agricultural center at the fairgrounds. An emergency generator was also added to the project to make it shelter ready and also to provide backup to the city of Websters sewage system. The construction project is expected to be completed before the 2015 fair next March. More changes are also planned at the fairgrounds. Additionally, the County Commission is planning to seek bids soon for renovation work to the agricultural building and the horse arena at the fairgrounds, Arnold said.

He said there are usually more re-enactors playing allied forces than axis forces, noting that most people would rather play the role on the side their ancestors were on. Vendors sell wares that range from actual period items to period re-creations. I thought it was great, said Gruber, who came on as park manager this past year. People enjoyed it and the re-enactors seemed to have a good time, he said, adding that the World War II event is also historically appropriate for the park, which served as a communications site during World War II. The weather was great, the skirmish that we had went well, he added, noting they focus on safety. Of guests, about 14 veterans registered veterans get free admission to the park, a ribbon and even an invite to the nighttime USO show. The USO show is limited to the re-enactors, volunteers and veterans, but Gruber said thats only because the lodge capacity is limited, making it impossible to accommodate everyone who attended the daytime events. The South Sumter High School jazz band performed, playing 1940s music and those who attended were in period attire. They even drank from old paper cups with handles and glass soda bottles. Next up is the April 12, Swallow Tail Kite and Wildlife Festival. The park attracts a high number of the birds, which just arrived this week, Gruber said.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. During that time, she and her son noticed birds congregating on the roof and tearing through the screening over the swimming pool. It was a considerable expense to replace the screening and May said she fears that they might damage it again. There are also neighbors who are concerned about their small dogs because of having so many of the large birds in the vicinity, she said. Both of the Mays contend that the vultures have become more numerous since a new landfill opened in their community. Heart of Florida Landfill, County Road 429A, Lake Panasoffkee, began operation last spring. Its approximately two miles from the Mays home. May and her son have called local and area officials about getting rid of the vultures, but have learned that about all they can do is repel them with fireworks or water spray. Firecrackers only worked briefly and the vultures return, she said. Lenny Salsburg, a public information officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FFWC), told the Times that he didnt have information available regarding any problems with vultures related to the landfill. He did note that while they are valuable in the environment, they can be a problem. He cited the Kennedy Space Center as one location that has experienced problems with the fowl. They are federally protected migratory birds, Salsberg said. As such, an individual cant do much with them without a proper license. There are private contractors who deal with nuisance wildlife that can sometimes relocate the vultures. The FFWC does not directly deal with nuisance vultures. Homeowners can use fireworks and sprinklers to repel the birds, he said. Although located in the Lake Panasoffkee vicinity, the landfill is within the City of Bushnell. Denise Lee, director of zoning and code compliance for the city, said she had received only one complaint about the landfill since it opened, an odor problem that was corrected within minutes after she investigated. Also, the operational permit for the facility requires an avian control program. Sumter County Health Department officials declined to comment on questions about possible vulture complaints, noting that callers with vulture complaints would be referred to FWCC. Sumter County Animal Services Manager Tamra Belancin said her offices had received few if any vulture complaints in the past several months and also noted that individuals would be referred to FWCC. May is aware of the vultures protected status and value. But, are they that valuable if they multiply year after year, she said. I dont want them next to me like this. I want to get back in my pool. A check of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) website echoes some of her concerns. APHIS states that black vultures can damage window caulking, roof shingles, vent seals, rubber roof liners, and pool covers on homes and commercial buildings. The birds can damage paint. windshield wipers, rubber seals and vinyl seat covers on vehicles. Additional information about control measures can be found at WWW.APHIS.USDA.GOV. A number of steps are needed to get to the online brochures at this website. Try this series of links from the APHIS page: WILDLIFE DAMAGES, OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES, VULTURES, RELATED LINKS. The FFWC also has some information on its website WWW.MYFWC.COM. The agency list phone numbers for contacting APHIS Wildlife Services: 351-377-5556 or toll free 866-487-3297. BIRDS continued from Page 1 Emergency at South Sumter High not Emergency rescue personnel are responding paramedics and deputies are zooming in, fire trucks are rolling to the curb and medical helicopters are landing, all at South Sumter High School not. While the responders are very real, the scenario theyre responding to is not. Its all part of a mock drill scenario at the school, designed to hone fire, ambulance and law enforcement skills for taking care of the public. An estimated 75 first responders from fire rescue, EMS and the sheriffs office will be taking part, responding to the fake scenario of a car thats run into the bleachers at the baseball field, injuring several spectators. The drill means utilizing multiple ambulances and possibly even medical flight helicopters. They will even be in contact with area hospitals and possibly relying on fire rescue units from around the county, said Sumter sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. In recent years, most of the drills have been tabletop, done in a training room environment. While Caruthers said both training situations are good, this one will take emergency responders through the actual scene and will benefit fire rescue, EMS and the general public. The scenario gives rescue personnel a chance to experience real time response, Caruthers said. It gives them practice in triage on patients, getting to the scene and it will really test our communication skills, Caruthers said. The more they work together, the better they get, he said of the different agencies coming together. The drill will also hone the skills of their communications department, as they are bombarded with calls. I think its going to be a very good training, and it will put several functions together in more of a practical sense. Volunteers from the school will be role playing too. Emergency Management has been really good assisting with grants, Caruthers said, noting thats what this drill stems from. Its the second training in recent months that emergency management has coordinated. An estimated 75 first responders will be involved. According to the county administration office, the Sumter County Emergency Management Department is sponsoring the drill to help first responders prepare for an incident that could overwhelm our emergency medical system. It gives the participants a chance to learn and practice together in a very challenging scenario, said David Casto, Sumter County Emergency Management Director. The drill will be conducted from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Thursday. There will be signs posted on N. Main Street and W. Palm Avenue specifying that a drill is in progress. Local residents, parents, and school personnel should be aware and not alarmed by all the emergency response vehicles in the area during the drill.

Police report A 59-year-old Lady Lake man was killed in a car crash Saturday night, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Arthur Miller, 59, was reportedly a passenger in a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup truck that was struck as it was heading westbound on C.R. 466. According to the report, it was just after 6 p.m. when Clayton Andrew Dorey, 17, of Ocklawaha, was traveling northbound on C.R. 229 and approaching the intersection of C.R. 466. He failed to stop at the posted stop sign and the front of the 2000 Dodge Durango he was driving, collided with the left side of the Dodge pickup truck, driven by Robert Plunk, of Umatilla, according to the report. The impact caused the pickup to rotate and overturn. Miller died from his injuries. Both Dorey and Plunk received minor injuries. Man dies in crash60 years old and still going strongThe February meeting of the Sumter County Retired Educators took place at the First Baptist Church of Bushnell.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014 A diverse show For me, last week began and ended with funerals. On Monday, I attended the funeral of Mary Zawalich, whom Id never met, or maybe I have and I dont remember. About a month ago, she called me. She told me her name and said she was 92 and she was dying, but that it was OK, that it was a happy death. She had called to say that shes been a reader of my column and that Ive been a wonderful part of her life. She called to thank me, to say that she admired me, that she has loved me. Ive been thinking a lot about that. What do you do with something like that? How do you even process a stranger calling you out of the blue to say youve changed her life? So, on Monday I went to Mary Zawalichs funeral where I learned that she was strong-willed and good with numbers. When the priest mentioned that, people laughed. She was a hospital volunteer and helped run a churchsponsored thrift store ministry. She was from New York and was a woman of faith. She had planned her own funeral, which was lovely. They sang one of my favorite Catholic funeral songs from Psalm 23: Shepherd me, O God, from beyond my wants, beyond my fears, from death into life. Mary had told me hers was a happy death, one she looked forward to, one that would take her from death into life. That was Monday. On Saturday, I went to say good bye to an old friend, Alan Woody, a local evangelist/chaplain/minister who died at age 77 from Alzheimers. My first encounter with Mr. Woody was a strange phone call at home in 1996. I say Hello and this man says, I need a tombstone. Is there something you can do to help me? Hows that for a conversation starter? He went on to explain that he had befriended a young man who died from AIDS years before and he wanted to get a tombstone for the young mans grave. That sparked my interest and began a long friendship with him and his wife, Jo, both who loved me and encouraged me and prayed for me. Mr. Woody loved people, especially kids and teens, and wasnt afraid to love the unlovable and the hard cases most people would turn away. He was a front-line person. When the school shootings at Columbine and Paducha happened, when 9/11 and Katrina happened, he got in his truck and went to share the love of Jesus. He visited prisons and mailed thousands of Bibles to thousands of prisoners and answered every one of their letters personally. One of his favorite things to do was to go to rock concerts and stand in the parking lot, wearing his Mission Possible ball cap and engage concert-goers in conversation, but never, ever in a confrontational way. There was not one judgmental bone in Mr. Woodys body. He called his ministry Mission Possible because he believed that with God all things are possible (Mark 10:27). I used to see Mr. Woody all the time at the post office, and he never failed to tell me that he was proud of me, to keep doing what Im doing. He had beautiful white hair and a voice that was like soft gravel. He poured his life out for others. He loved prisoners and those in law enforcement. He was a servant of God. As part of my job at the paper, I go to a lot of funerals. Believe it or not, not all of them are sad. There is such a thing as a happy death, as Mary Zawalich called hers. Not that the death and dying part is happy, but whats on the other side for those who belong to God. Jesus told his friends that in his Fathers house there are many dwelling places. If that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? he said. He prefaced that by saying, Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me (John 14:12). I dont know if Mary Zawalich or Mr. Woody let their hearts be troubled, but I do know they believed in God and also in his Son. For Christians, that is our great hope, that the thought of death is not troubling but one of promise. Well done, Mary Zawalich and Mr. Woody. When you see Jesus, tell him I said hi.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Americans should consume at least 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day. Vegetables help promote overall good health from the important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber they contain. Here are some tips of how to choose the right vegetables to help you get the nutrients your body needs every day. Local produce farmers and Farmers markets are great places to buy fresh vegetables. You can shop locally, buy farmfresh, locally grown vegetables that are in season at a reasonable price. You also know where their food comes from. Many of the farmers markets and produce farmers are taking part in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Fussell Farmers recently starting participating in SNAP at their farm in Webster and the Sumter County Farmers Market in Webster has been approved and will soon be participating in SNAP. Individuals will be able to use their EBT cards to get tokens to purchase vegetables from the participating vendors at the Sumter County Farmers Market. Choose vegetables you know you like and know how to prepare. Buy vegetables that are in season, they tend to be less expensive and have the best flavor. Buy pre-packaged, fresh vegetables you can add them directly to any recipe or eat as a snack. Select vegetables in a variety of colors to give your body a good mix of nutrients. The brightest colors often have the most vitamins and minerals. Let your children help with the vegetable shopping. If they are allowed to select when shopping they will tend to eat more veggies! The downside to these veggies is you pay for convenience because they tend to cost more. Lets look at canned and frozen vegetables. These may cost less and have longer shelf life than fresh vegetables. They however tend to have a higher in sodium unless you purchase low or no salt added. Usually canned and frozen vegetables are packaged within hour of being picked which means they keep their flavor and nutrients. Canned veggies are a quick choice because they are ready to use in recipes. Frozen veggies only need to be cooked and some can be added to a recipe frozen and cooking with casserole or prepared cooked dish. Follow the MyPlate to plan your meals and start including 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day in your diet. Resource: UF/IFAS Extension EDIS Publication FSHN11-04-Shopping for Health: Vegetables.

March is Nutrition Month and Spring is just around the corner Martha Maddox UF/IFAS Extension Sumter Countys Master Gardeners program has a lot to be proud about given their annual festival this past Saturday. Patrons filled the parking area at the Wildwood Community Center and perused dozens of vendor exhibits of anything from orchids to pottery, from glass outdoor sculptures to bromeliads. The event provided a great opportunity for gardeners and plant enthusiasts to purchase a desired plant and also learn some interesting facts. This show is a definite hit. Its well put together and provides something for just about any interest. It one of those events thats worth putting on your calendar. Shame it only comes once a year. Grace notes O death, where is thy sting? Nancy Kennedy Special to theTimes On Tuesday, March 11, the United Daughters of the Confederacy chapter, the Confederate Gray 641, met at the Leesburg Public Library. Those in attendance were President Carolyn Sharpe, Linda Sharp, Anne Skinner, Roslyn Cartwright, Peggy Sloan, Carol Anderson, and guests Irish Wolf and Joyce White of the Granville Beville 2234 chapter of Bushnell and Harry and Karen Hurst of Ocala. Mrs. Karen Hurst of Ocala was the guest speaker who gave a presentation on the Order of the Confederate Rose. Mrs. Hurst is the president of the Sarah Haynes chapter of the OCR which was formed on May 20, 2006. The main objective of the OCR is to support the activities of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans.

Wildwood was named a 2013 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management. Wildwood achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the programs four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. Everyone benefits when elected officials, volunteers and committed citizens in communities like Wildwood make smart investments in urban forests, said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. Trees bring shade to our homes and beauty to our neighborhoods, along with numerous economic, social and environmental benefits. Cleaner air, improved storm water management, energy savings and increased property values and commercial activity are among the benefits enjoyed by Tree City USA communities. More information on the program is available at arborday.org/TreeCityUSA. About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. More information is available at arborday.org. The Tree City USA Commemoration & Arbor Day Celebration will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 9 a.m. on the Wildwood City Hall front steps. SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014, PAGEA5 Continuing historic steps to ensure all Florida children have the opportunity to succeed, Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart announced a new test has been selected to replace the FCAT 2.0 exams beginning with the 2014-15 school year. The new assessment will measure each childs progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input, said Stewart. This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize flexibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our students to analyze and think. The selection of our new assessment tool is a critical step forward. Florida students will be assessed on their knowledge of the Florida Standards, which will prepare them for success in college, careers and in life, said State Board of Education Chairman Gary Chartrand. In August 2013, Gov. Rick Scott convened the states top education leaders and bipartisan stakeholders to discuss the sustainability and transparency of the states accountability system in a three-day accountability summit. Using input from the summit, Governor Scott issued Executive Order 13-276, which initiated Floridas departure from the national PARCC consortium as its fiscal agent, to ensure that the state would be able to procure a test specifically designed for Floridas needs without federal intervention. Scott also set out eight goals for the new assessment to ensure the best outcome for Florida students. Among those eight objectives were an emphasis on prompt reports of results, no significant change in testing time for students, no significant increase in costs of the assessments and an assurance that testing dates be as close as possible to the end of the school year to maximize learning opportunities. This assessment meets those goals. Scott also requested additional public comments about the standards, which resulted in public hearings around the state and thousands of comments from Floridians. In February 2014, the State Board of Education approved changes to the standards that reflected the input. The new Florida Standards for mathematics and English language arts stress a broader approach for student learning, including an increased emphasis on analytical thinking. With the new and more rigorous standards, a new assessment was needed to measure student progress. The Invitation to Negotiate was posted for public review in October 2013 and proposals were received in December. An evaluation team reviewed five proposals and narrowed the choice to three groups. Subsequently, a negotiation team unanimously recommended the not-for-profit American Institutes for Research (AIR) to Commissioner Stewart, who announced her selection of AIR today. For more information about the new assessment and its benefits for Florida students, please visit www.fldoe.org/eduaccsummit.asp. Say goodbye to FCAT, new assessment planned Wildwood Womens Club meets The Wildwood Womans Club meets on the fourth Monday of each month, from September through May at the VFW in Wildwood.

Sumter obituaries Wahoo Baptist offers Bow Club It all began when the Sumter Baptist Association put on a bow club demonstration and competitive shoot at Wahoo Baptist Church in Bushnell. For that event, 65 people came and 25 shooters competed. The Mens Ministry enjoyed the event tremendously and loved the idea of connecting more with our community. So the Wahoo Bow Club was born. The first event to kick off the new club was in January. The church had bounce houses for the kids, as well as a shooting range for the children. Representatives of the Florida Wildlife Management helped teach youth about bow safety. There is no requirement of church attendance and participants dont have to be a member of Wahoo Baptist to attend. And you do not have to be an archery expert! This event is for anyone in the community. The idea is to have a place to take your family, that doesnt hurt your pocketbook and is good, wholesome fun for everyone. The next event is March 29 from 9 a.m. until noon and everyone is invited. Bring your family, friends, neighbors and bows and arrows. Wahoo Baptist Church is located in Bushnell at 4517 C.R. 319, just off CR48 in the big Wahoo curve. For information go to www.wahoochurch.org or call 352-793-6015.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014, PAGEA11 FROM THE GROUND UP Question:I just purchased a staghorn fern in a pot from a local nursery. How do I take care of it?Answer:First, light they need dappled light or indirect light; too little light and they will not grow properly and will be susceptible to insects and diseases. Second, water do not over water this plant or it can rot. It only needs water once weekly during hot, dry times and less during cooler or rainy times. When you see it start to wilt, is the time to water. Cold protection is required as your staghorn will only handle 25 temps for a short time without damage. Although relatively free from pests and diseases, they can get scale or mealybugs. This plant is sensitive to pesticides so read the pesticide label carefully and do not ever use any oil-based pesticide on it. See the next question regarding fertilizer. For information on how to plant it in a basket, mount the fern in a tree or on a board please see http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg015 Question: Do staghorn ferns need fertilization? I usually just give mine a banana and it seems fine. Answer:UF recommends a water-soluble fertilizer with a 1:1:1 ratio, for example a 10-10-10 or a 20-20-20. Fertilize monthly during the warm growing season and every other month when growth slows down. Frequent fertilization is only required when you want to grow the staghorn. If it is mature and as large as you want it, it will thrive with just 1 or 2 applications per year of a controlled-release fertilizer. Although high in phosphorus, potassium and some micronutrients, banana peels are missing nitrogen so they are not a complete fertilizer. For a healthier plant be sure to use the proper fertilization.Question:When should I prune my plumbago?Answer:Plumbago needs very little pruning except to shape it; however, it does bloom on new wood. Gently prune it just to shape it, remove any branches that could be rubbing or snip a few tips off and it should keep blooming for you. For those of you who might have deer eating your shrubs, this is one they do not like!To submit questions to Ask the Master Gardener please call 352-793-2728, Ext. 229 or email us at plantclinic@aol.com Staghorn Fern photo courtesy of UF/IFAS Gardening Solutions for Your Life; Plumbago photo courtesy of Jim Davis, Residential Horticulture Agent, UF/IFAS Sumter County Extension.

These sporty little fish are many a kids first catch, introducing them to a lifetime of fishing fun. They provide great opportunities for shoreline fishing using simple cane poles or spinning rods. License-free freshwater fishing weekends are a great time for adults to introduce kids to fishing and see if they and you would like to take up the sport. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) schedules the first of four license-free recreational freshwater fishing days on the first full weekend in April each year (April 5-6 this year), because it is such a productive fishing time, and the weather is usually pleasant. Many of Floridas recreational sport fishes, such as black bass, bluegill and redear sunfish, move into the shallows to spawn during spring, making them more available for anglers to catch. During license-free freshwater fishing weekends (the first weekend in April and the second weekend in June) no recreational fishing license is required; however, all other bag limit, season, gear and size restrictions apply on these dates for recreational fishing. The FWC invites you to take this opportunity to take your family, friends and colleagues fishing. Children dont need a fishing license until they are 16, but parents may buy them one at any time and they wont expire until they are 17. This helps the FWC attain additional revenue from the Federal Aid in Sportfish Restoration program to improve their fishing and gives the child pride in belonging to the angling community. Fishing is a low-cost, wholesome form of entertainment that often pays for itself with healthy food for the table. An annual license (MyFWC.com/License; 888-347-4356) is only $17.50 for residents. To further encourage recreational fishing, the FWC will conduct a special contest during April to collect photos of anglers. All you have to do is post a photo of your family fishing in Floridas fresh waters on Twitter or Instagram with #FWCFamilyFishing. In return for your efforts, the FWC will enter your name into a drawing for one of six surprise packages, each including a $50 gift card, compliments of Bass Pro Shops and TrophyCatch, and another $50 worth of assorted fishing lures, hooks, line and goodies to make your next trip even more productive. Submitted photos must be your own, unedited pictures, and the photo must not include inappropriate content. Photos should be taken during April while freshwater fishing in Florida and include multiple anglers enjoying their day together on the water. The FWC may subsequently use the photos for outreach purposes. In addition, freshwater anglers are encouraged to participate in the Big Catch angler-recognition program. All you need to do is catch one of 33 species of freshwater fish that exceed a specific length or weight, go to BigCatchFlorida.com, fill out some information and post a photo. Besides getting to share the excitement of your catch on the Internet, youll receive via email a custom certificate to print, and a discount for SportsmanOnCanvas.com. Big Catch encourages anglers to try different species and locations, by recognizing different levels of achievement: Master Angler (five different qualifying Big Catch species), Elite Angler (10 different qualifying Big Catch species) or Specialist (five qualifying fish of the same species). It is fun and challenging for the entire family. Here are some tips to make your bream fishing more successful. During spring, sunfish congregate to spawn in water depths from 3 to 10 feet. Bluegill continue to spawn periodically throughout summer. Bluegill opt for slightly shallower areas than redear sunfish, but its not unusual to see them use the same bedding areas simultaneously. Crickets, grubs, sand maggots or grass shrimp will all catch bedding bluegill. Use a small hook, #6 or #8, with a split-shot sinker about 6 inches up the line, and concentrate on water less than 6 feet deep. A small float helps identify strikes. For artificial baits, a 1/8ounce beetle spin with a white or chartreuse body on ultralight tackle is an excellent choice. Your local bait and tackle shop can quickly help you find what you need. The redear sunfish, or shellcracker, is another popular panfish. Although they prefer snails and clams, redear sunfish are caught most often on earthworms around the full moon in March and April, when spawning peaks. Redear prefer hard-bottom habitat and typically begin spawning about one month before bluegill. In south Florida, shellcracker spawn as early as late February and will likely begin bedding in the Panhandle around the end of May, depending on water temperatures. Shellcracker continue spawning into August. Redbreast sunfish, also known as river bream and redbellies, are the flowing water cousins of bluegill. Redbellies are more common in rivers than bluegill, and often can be found in backwater areas with less flow. The same baits that work for bluegill will catch redbreast sunfish. The spotted sunfish, or stumpknocker, is an often overlooked stream panfish. Aptly named, stumpknockers can be found in the tangle of roots at the waters edge. Although spotted sunfish rarely exceed 8 inches, these feisty species provide great sport on light tackle. Tiny (1/16ounce) beetle spins pitched close to shore can be deadly, particularly tipped with freshwater clam meat. With a fishing hole within 30-45 minutes of almost everyone in Florida, the hardest part might be picking your destination. Although your neighborhood pond or a local park may be your best bet, FWC biologists created a list of some major public water bodies they think should be great bream fisheries this year. For full descriptions of the sites, access to them and specific fishing tips for these locations, see MyFWC.com/Fishing and under Freshwater Fishing select Sites/Forecasts.

Florida Fish Busters Bulletin Staghorn Dade City resident Richard Clinton now holds the record for catching the largest brown bullhead catfish on rod and reel in Florida waters, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). On Feb. 12, Clinton was crappie fishing with his cousin on Lake Iola, a privately owned lake in Pasco County. At 9:30 a.m., something big latched onto his live minnow in 32 feet of water. When the fish surfaced, they saw that it was a huge brown bullhead. I was surprised at how strong the fish pulled once I hooked it, Clinton said. It fought harder than a 7pound bass I also caught. The astonished Clinton believed his fish weighed significantly more than the existing state record, so he contacted FWC freshwater fishery biologist Eric Johnson at the agencys Lakeland regional office. The next day, Johnson officially certified the fish as a new state record brown bullhead. The fish weighed 7.02 pounds and was 22.25 inches in length with a girth of 15.5 inches. Unbelievably, it was just a few ounces shy of the world record. The previous state record was a 5.72-pound brown bullhead caught by Robert Bengis on Cedar Creek in Duval County in 1995. Per FWC state record fish certification rules, fish must be legally caught using active hook-and-line methods by an angler with a valid Florida fishing license or who is exempt from license requirements. An FWC biologist must verify the species and weigh it on a certified scale. I knew I had a big fish, Clinton said. Im glad I was recognized for catching a state record brown bullhead. Brown bullhead catfish are native to the eastern United States and are similar in appearance to the yellow bullhead. According to the International Game Fish Association, the world record brown bullhead is a 7-pound, 6-ounce fish that Glenn Collacuro caught from Mahopac Lake in New York on Aug. 1, 2009. The FWC also recognizes anglers who catch a memorable-size fish by giving them a Big Catch certificate. These certificates are issued for 33 different species of freshwater fish and are subject to less stringent guidelines than for record fish, allowing anglers to be recognized if the fishs weight or length exceeds minimum standards. More information is available at MyFWC.com/Big Catch and in the Freshwater Fishing Regulations Summary online.

Students (Left to Right) Gianna Gaudio, Sommer Triesh, Bryan Jackson, Jose Gonzalez, and Luis Carvajel-Beltran show their origami creations. Marterrian Davis and Tyrie Jones demonstrate how to create origami objects. Origami anyone? The students in Tanner Woods 6th grade history classes at Wildwood Middle High School had a special presentation recently when they were studying Ancient China and Japan. The students participated in a lesson on origami. Origami is the art of folding paper into decorative objects. The object cannot have staples or glue; it is created by folds in the paper. The art was created in China and flourished in Japan. What made this lesson even more special was that it was taught throughout the day by students.Sixth-grade students Marterrian Davis and Tyrie Jones both enjoy origami as a hobby and taught the art to their fellow peers. Students created several types of objects including flapping birds and roses. Enrrique Miranda holds the flapping birds he created out of paper.

PAGEA20SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014 Pet lovers scammed by unscrupulous breeders Animal lovers beware. Puppy mills and backyard breeders are creating new ways to scam you. Puppy mills are horrific places where hundreds of dogs live forever in small filthy crates, producing one litter after another of purebred or designer puppies for sale in pet stores, flea markets, or over the internet. The dogs have little human contact, no veterinarian care, no grooming, and never know what it feels like to romp and play. Back yard breeders usually have many litters of different breeds of dogs to sell. Conditions vary with each breeder, but dogs are continuously bred having litter after litter of puppies. While all of these breeders continue to breed hundreds of thousands of puppies, hundreds of thousands more dogs are being killed in animal control facilities across the country simply because there are not enough homes for them. So where are those cute puppies coming from when you buy them from a pet store? Where are they coming from when you buy that adorable puppy on-line. And where do you think the puppies for sale at flea markets come from? The puppy you just bought from that pet store has AKC papers. But did you know that puppy mills can register their animals with the AKC? Did you know that the AKC does not restrict puppy mills from producing AKC registered puppies? The fact is that almost all puppies sold in pet stores have come from puppy mills. Legitimate breeders will never have their puppies for sale in a pet store. What about breeders selling their puppies online? Scams on websites depicting healthy and happy puppies playing together in a beautiful backyard can be just that a scam! The consumer will purchase a puppy from a picture seen on the scammers website, never actually meeting the puppy. With all contact done virtually by e-mail, the puppy that is shipped to the purchaser may not even be the same one in the picture. The purchaser often receives puppies that are sickly. No reputable breeder will sell a puppy on-line without meeting the prospective new family and checking to be sure that their puppy is going to a good home. All reputable breeders will allow you into their homes to meet both the puppies and the parents of the puppies. Many backyard breeders do not want the public to see the substandard conditions they are breeding the dogs in. Animal lovers who want to rescue must beware too. According to an ASPCA study, Rescue Group or Animal Sanctuary websites have been set up by puppy mills and backyard breeders. Scamming the good hearted animal lover, they claim to have rescued purebred puppies and dogs from shelters, bad breeders, and even puppy mills. Most always their adoption fee can be well over $1,000, and as long as the purchaser pays the fee, the puppy is shipped off with no regard to the animals future welfare. Legitimate rescue groups first and foremost, will check to be sure the prospective adopters can provide the dog a good home, and their adoption fees are far less than the scammers. Do your research before you get your next puppy or dog. Be sure you arent perpetuating the inhumane conditions that breeding animals are forced to endure year after year by cruel people. Be a part of the solution by making Adoption your first option. There are many wonderful purebreds and all American mixed breeds waiting at legitimate rescues and humane organizations to be your best friend.

BOB REICHMAN/ Sumter County TimesWith aboundingly blue skies, plant lovers were in full force Saturday at the annual UF/IFAS Master Gardener Plant and Garden Festival at the Wildwood Community Center. The event featured a wide variety of plants, trees, garden items and pottery to name a few. See more photos inside this edition. Thursday, March 20, 2014Volume 128 Number 12Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES INSIDE INSIDE QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY In the Wildwood race Plenty of plants for sale ... Scavangers descend on Panasoffkee ...Dozens of vultures annoy resident Theyre up there on just about any day the large, dark forms of vultures soaring over Sumter Countys ranches, woods and neighborhoods. And, like most birds, they will seek a place to roost at the end of the day. For Lake Panasoffkee retiree Rosalie May, thats a reason for concern because a number of the feathered scavengers apparently like her backyard. For months, vultures have used trees at the back of her lot on County Road 667 as a roost. Theyve typically been coming in to roost about 5 p.m. and fly out about 8 a.m., May said. She estimates that there might be 25 to 30 birds at the time in the trees. Her son Orren lives close by on the same street and estimates that there could be as many as 35 to 40 perched in the trees at times. Last Thursday, there was a dozen black vultures one of the two varieties found in Florida by about 5 p.m. A relative of nobler raptors such as hawks, owls and eagles, vultures can weigh up to five pounds and have a wingspan of five feet. They are noted for their ability to find dead animal carcasses, even when they cant see them. Having the animals lurking over her backyard raised so much concern for May that she spent $900 to have their roost tree removed. That didnt seem to help as the birds just went to trees about 40 feet or so from their previous perch. For the time being there havent been too many problems, according to the Mays. They sometimes get on the house roof and created a considerable mess by defecating on Orrens pickup truck twice in one day. But, theyve both seen what the vultures can do. Before she bought the house about 18 months ago, it was vacant for a number of years, May said. New Cow Palace approved at $2.5 million It was a stroll through history recently as hundreds of visitors attended the annual World War II commemorative weekend event at Dade Battlefield Historic Site in Bushnell. An estimated 1,000 people entered the gates as reenactors or spectators for the event, according to park manager Bill Gruber. Weapons, tents, gear, uniforms and military transportation from the World War II era are on display during the two-day event March 7 and 8, with 100 reenactors who have stepped into roles from a time long When this years annual county fair ended on Saturday, March 15, construction work is now expected to begin on a new Cow Palace the the county fairgrounds. Late last month, the County Commission approved hiring Tucker Construction and Engineering Inc., of Winter Haven, for the project. The old Cow Palace was torn down last year after commissioners agreed that the building would require too many renovations to be practical. Tucker Construction was one of eight companies considered for the project. Originally estimated to cost $2.1 million, plans were upgraded for the new facility so that it can additionally be used as an emergency hurricane shelter for the county, said County Administrator Bradley Arnold. Currently, South Sumter High School is classified as a hurricane shelter during emergencies. By ensuring that the fairgrounds building meets stricter building standards so it can be used as the main shelter in southern Sumter, it means the high school can move to a secondary status for emergencies. In the past, school had to be cancelled, this would provide more flexibility, Arnold said. The Cow Palace designs were also enhanced to provide a new location for the fair office which is currently housed inside the agricultural center at the fairgrounds. An emergency generator was also added to the project to make it shelter ready and also to provide backup to the city of Websters sewage system. The construction project is expected to be completed before the 2015 fair next March. More changes are also planned at the fairgrounds. Additionally, the County Commission is planning to seek bids soon for renovation work to the agricultural building and the horse arena at the fairgrounds, Arnold said.

He said there are usually more re-enactors playing allied forces than axis forces, noting that most people would rather play the role on the side their ancestors were on. Vendors sell wares that range from actual period items to period re-creations. I thought it was great, said Gruber, who came on as park manager this past year. People enjoyed it and the re-enactors seemed to have a good time, he said, adding that the World War II event is also historically appropriate for the park, which served as a communications site during World War II. The weather was great, the skirmish that we had went well, he added, noting they focus on safety. Of guests, about 14 veterans registered veterans get free admission to the park, a ribbon and even an invite to the nighttime USO show. The USO show is limited to the re-enactors, volunteers and veterans, but Gruber said thats only because the lodge capacity is limited, making it impossible to accommodate everyone who attended the daytime events. The South Sumter High School jazz band performed, playing 1940s music and those who attended were in period attire. They even drank from old paper cups with handles and glass soda bottles. Next up is the April 12, Swallow Tail Kite and Wildlife Festival. The park attracts a high number of the birds, which just arrived this week, Gruber said.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. During that time, she and her son noticed birds congregating on the roof and tearing through the screening over the swimming pool. It was a considerable expense to replace the screening and May said she fears that they might damage it again. There are also neighbors who are concerned about their small dogs because of having so many of the large birds in the vicinity, she said. Both of the Mays contend that the vultures have become more numerous since a new landfill opened in their community. Heart of Florida Landfill, County Road 429A, Lake Panasoffkee, began operation last spring. Its approximately two miles from the Mays home. May and her son have called local and area officials about getting rid of the vultures, but have learned that about all they can do is repel them with fireworks or water spray. Firecrackers only worked briefly and the vultures return, she said. Lenny Salsburg, a public information officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FFWC), told the Times that he didnt have information available regarding any problems with vultures related to the landfill. He did note that while they are valuable in the environment, they can be a problem. He cited the Kennedy Space Center as one location that has experienced problems with the fowl. They are federally protected migratory birds, Salsberg said. As such, an individual cant do much with them without a proper license. There are private contractors who deal with nuisance wildlife that can sometimes relocate the vultures. The FFWC does not directly deal with nuisance vultures. Homeowners can use fireworks and sprinklers to repel the birds, he said. Although located in the Lake Panasoffkee vicinity, the landfill is within the City of Bushnell. Denise Lee, director of zoning and code compliance for the city, said she had received only one complaint about the landfill since it opened, an odor problem that was corrected within minutes after she investigated. Also, the operational permit for the facility requires an avian control program. Sumter County Health Department officials declined to comment on questions about possible vulture complaints, noting that callers with vulture complaints would be referred to FWCC. Sumter County Animal Services Manager Tamra Belancin said her offices had received few if any vulture complaints in the past several months and also noted that individuals would be referred to FWCC. May is aware of the vultures protected status and value. But, are they that valuable if they multiply year after year, she said. I dont want them next to me like this. I want to get back in my pool. A check of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) website echoes some of her concerns. APHIS states that black vultures can damage window caulking, roof shingles, vent seals, rubber roof liners, and pool covers on homes and commercial buildings. The birds can damage paint. windshield wipers, rubber seals and vinyl seat covers on vehicles. Additional information about control measures can be found at WWW.APHIS.USDA.GOV. A number of steps are needed to get to the online brochures at this website. Try this series of links from the APHIS page: WILDLIFE DAMAGES, OPERATIONAL ACTIVITIES, VULTURES, RELATED LINKS. The FFWC also has some information on its website WWW.MYFWC.COM. The agency list phone numbers for contacting APHIS Wildlife Services: 351-377-5556 or toll free 866-487-3297. BIRDS continued from Page 1 Emergency at South Sumter High not Emergency rescue personnel are responding paramedics and deputies are zooming in, fire trucks are rolling to the curb and medical helicopters are landing, all at South Sumter High School not. While the responders are very real, the scenario theyre responding to is not. Its all part of a mock drill scenario at the school, designed to hone fire, ambulance and law enforcement skills for taking care of the public. An estimated 75 first responders from fire rescue, EMS and the sheriffs office will be taking part, responding to the fake scenario of a car thats run into the bleachers at the baseball field, injuring several spectators. The drill means utilizing multiple ambulances and possibly even medical flight helicopters. They will even be in contact with area hospitals and possibly relying on fire rescue units from around the county, said Sumter sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. In recent years, most of the drills have been tabletop, done in a training room environment. While Caruthers said both training situations are good, this one will take emergency responders through the actual scene and will benefit fire rescue, EMS and the general public. The scenario gives rescue personnel a chance to experience real time response, Caruthers said. It gives them practice in triage on patients, getting to the scene and it will really test our communication skills, Caruthers said. The more they work together, the better they get, he said of the different agencies coming together. The drill will also hone the skills of their communications department, as they are bombarded with calls. I think its going to be a very good training, and it will put several functions together in more of a practical sense. Volunteers from the school will be role playing too. Emergency Management has been really good assisting with grants, Caruthers said, noting thats what this drill stems from. Its the second training in recent months that emergency management has coordinated. An estimated 75 first responders will be involved. According to the county administration office, the Sumter County Emergency Management Department is sponsoring the drill to help first responders prepare for an incident that could overwhelm our emergency medical system. It gives the participants a chance to learn and practice together in a very challenging scenario, said David Casto, Sumter County Emergency Management Director. The drill will be conducted from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Thursday. There will be signs posted on N. Main Street and W. Palm Avenue specifying that a drill is in progress. Local residents, parents, and school personnel should be aware and not alarmed by all the emergency response vehicles in the area during the drill.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014 A diverse show For me, last week began and ended with funerals. On Monday, I attended the funeral of Mary Zawalich, whom Id never met, or maybe I have and I dont remember. About a month ago, she called me. She told me her name and said she was 92 and she was dying, but that it was OK, that it was a happy death. She had called to say that shes been a reader of my column and that Ive been a wonderful part of her life. She called to thank me, to say that she admired me, that she has loved me. Ive been thinking a lot about that. What do you do with something like that? How do you even process a stranger calling you out of the blue to say youve changed her life? So, on Monday I went to Mary Zawalichs funeral where I learned that she was strong-willed and good with numbers. When the priest mentioned that, people laughed. She was a hospital volunteer and helped run a churchsponsored thrift store ministry. She was from New York and was a woman of faith. She had planned her own funeral, which was lovely. They sang one of my favorite Catholic funeral songs from Psalm 23: Shepherd me, O God, from beyond my wants, beyond my fears, from death into life. Mary had told me hers was a happy death, one she looked forward to, one that would take her from death into life. That was Monday. On Saturday, I went to say good bye to an old friend, Alan Woody, a local evangelist/chaplain/minister who died at age 77 from Alzheimers. My first encounter with Mr. Woody was a strange phone call at home in 1996. I say Hello and this man says, I need a tombstone. Is there something you can do to help me? Hows that for a conversation starter? He went on to explain that he had befriended a young man who died from AIDS years before and he wanted to get a tombstone for the young mans grave. That sparked my interest and began a long friendship with him and his wife, Jo, both who loved me and encouraged me and prayed for me. Mr. Woody loved people, especially kids and teens, and wasnt afraid to love the unlovable and the hard cases most people would turn away. He was a front-line person. When the school shootings at Columbine and Paducha happened, when 9/11 and Katrina happened, he got in his truck and went to share the love of Jesus. He visited prisons and mailed thousands of Bibles to thousands of prisoners and answered every one of their letters personally. One of his favorite things to do was to go to rock concerts and stand in the parking lot, wearing his Mission Possible ball cap and engage concert-goers in conversation, but never, ever in a confrontational way. There was not one judgmental bone in Mr. Woodys body. He called his ministry Mission Possible because he believed that with God all things are possible (Mark 10:27). I used to see Mr. Woody all the time at the post office, and he never failed to tell me that he was proud of me, to keep doing what Im doing. He had beautiful white hair and a voice that was like soft gravel. He poured his life out for others. He loved prisoners and those in law enforcement. He was a servant of God. As part of my job at the paper, I go to a lot of funerals. Believe it or not, not all of them are sad. There is such a thing as a happy death, as Mary Zawalich called hers. Not that the death and dying part is happy, but whats on the other side for those who belong to God. Jesus told his friends that in his Fathers house there are many dwelling places. If that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? he said. He prefaced that by saying, Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me (John 14:12). I dont know if Mary Zawalich or Mr. Woody let their hearts be troubled, but I do know they believed in God and also in his Son. For Christians, that is our great hope, that the thought of death is not troubling but one of promise. Well done, Mary Zawalich and Mr. Woody. When you see Jesus, tell him I said hi.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Americans should consume at least 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day. Vegetables help promote overall good health from the important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber they contain. Here are some tips of how to choose the right vegetables to help you get the nutrients your body needs every day. Local produce farmers and Farmers markets are great places to buy fresh vegetables. You can shop locally, buy farmfresh, locally grown vegetables that are in season at a reasonable price. You also know where their food comes from. Many of the farmers markets and produce farmers are taking part in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Fussell Farmers recently starting participating in SNAP at their farm in Webster and the Sumter County Farmers Market in Webster has been approved and will soon be participating in SNAP. Individuals will be able to use their EBT cards to get tokens to purchase vegetables from the participating vendors at the Sumter County Farmers Market. Choose vegetables you know you like and know how to prepare. Buy vegetables that are in season, they tend to be less expensive and have the best flavor. Buy pre-packaged, fresh vegetables you can add them directly to any recipe or eat as a snack. Select vegetables in a variety of colors to give your body a good mix of nutrients. The brightest colors often have the most vitamins and minerals. Let your children help with the vegetable shopping. If they are allowed to select when shopping they will tend to eat more veggies! The downside to these veggies is you pay for convenience because they tend to cost more. Lets look at canned and frozen vegetables. These may cost less and have longer shelf life than fresh vegetables. They however tend to have a higher in sodium unless you purchase low or no salt added. Usually canned and frozen vegetables are packaged within hour of being picked which means they keep their flavor and nutrients. Canned veggies are a quick choice because they are ready to use in recipes. Frozen veggies only need to be cooked and some can be added to a recipe frozen and cooking with casserole or prepared cooked dish. Follow the MyPlate to plan your meals and start including 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day in your diet. Resource: UF/IFAS Extension EDIS Publication FSHN11-04-Shopping for Health: Vegetables.

March is Nutrition Month and Spring is just around the corner Martha Maddox UF/IFAS Extension Sumter Countys Master Gardeners program has a lot to be proud about given their annual festival this past Saturday. Patrons filled the parking area at the Wildwood Community Center and perused dozens of vendor exhibits of anything from orchids to pottery, from glass outdoor sculptures to bromeliads. The event provided a great opportunity for gardeners and plant enthusiasts to purchase a desired plant and also learn some interesting facts. This show is a definite hit. Its well put together and provides something for just about any interest. It one of those events thats worth putting on your calendar. Shame it only comes once a year.

Wildwood was named a 2013 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management. Wildwood achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the programs four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. Everyone benefits when elected officials, volunteers and committed citizens in communities like Wildwood make smart investments in urban forests, said John Rosenow, founder and chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation. Trees bring shade to our homes and beauty to our neighborhoods, along with numerous economic, social and environmental benefits. Cleaner air, improved storm water management, energy savings and increased property values and commercial activity are among the benefits enjoyed by Tree City USA communities. More information on the program is available at arborday.org/TreeCityUSA. About the Arbor Day Foundation: The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization with the mission to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. More information is available at arborday.org. The Tree City USA Commemoration & Arbor Day Celebration will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 9 a.m. on the Wildwood City Hall front steps. SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014, PAGEA5 Continuing historic steps to ensure all Florida children have the opportunity to succeed, Florida Department of Education Commissioner Pam Stewart announced a new test has been selected to replace the FCAT 2.0 exams beginning with the 2014-15 school year. The new assessment will measure each childs progress and achievement on the Florida Standards, which were developed with an unprecedented amount of public input, said Stewart. This assessment supports our new standards, which emphasize flexibility for teachers to make their own decisions in classrooms while preparing our students to analyze and think. The selection of our new assessment tool is a critical step forward. Florida students will be assessed on their knowledge of the Florida Standards, which will prepare them for success in college, careers and in life, said State Board of Education Chairman Gary Chartrand. In August 2013, Gov. Rick Scott convened the states top education leaders and bipartisan stakeholders to discuss the sustainability and transparency of the states accountability system in a three-day accountability summit. Using input from the summit, Governor Scott issued Executive Order 13-276, which initiated Floridas departure from the national PARCC consortium as its fiscal agent, to ensure that the state would be able to procure a test specifically designed for Floridas needs without federal intervention. Scott also set out eight goals for the new assessment to ensure the best outcome for Florida students. Among those eight objectives were an emphasis on prompt reports of results, no significant change in testing time for students, no significant increase in costs of the assessments and an assurance that testing dates be as close as possible to the end of the school year to maximize learning opportunities. This assessment meets those goals. Scott also requested additional public comments about the standards, which resulted in public hearings around the state and thousands of comments from Floridians. In February 2014, the State Board of Education approved changes to the standards that reflected the input. The new Florida Standards for mathematics and English language arts stress a broader approach for student learning, including an increased emphasis on analytical thinking. With the new and more rigorous standards, a new assessment was needed to measure student progress. The Invitation to Negotiate was posted for public review in October 2013 and proposals were received in December. An evaluation team reviewed five proposals and narrowed the choice to three groups. Subsequently, a negotiation team unanimously recommended the not-for-profit American Institutes for Research (AIR) to Commissioner Stewart, who announced her selection of AIR today. For more information about the new assessment and its benefits for Florida students, please visit www.fldoe.org/eduaccsummit.asp.

Sumter obituaries Wahoo Baptist offers Bow Club It all began when the Sumter Baptist Association put on a bow club demonstration and competitive shoot at Wahoo Baptist Church in Bushnell. For that event, 65 people came and 25 shooters competed. The Mens Ministry enjoyed the event tremendously and loved the idea of connecting more with our community. So the Wahoo Bow Club was born. The first event to kick off the new club was in January. The church had bounce houses for the kids, as well as a shooting range for the children. Representatives of the Florida Wildlife Management helped teach youth about bow safety. There is no requirement of church attendance and participants dont have to be a member of Wahoo Baptist to attend. And you do not have to be an archery expert! This event is for anyone in the community. The idea is to have a place to take your family, that doesnt hurt your pocketbook and is good, wholesome fun for everyone. The next event is March 29 from 9 a.m. until noon and everyone is invited. Bring your family, friends, neighbors and bows and arrows. Wahoo Baptist Church is located in Bushnell at 4517 C.R. 319, just off CR48 in the big Wahoo curve. For information go to www.wahoochurch.org or call 352-793-6015.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014, PAGEA11 FROM THE GROUND UP Question:I just purchased a staghorn fern in a pot from a local nursery. How do I take care of it?Answer:First, light they need dappled light or indirect light; too little light and they will not grow properly and will be susceptible to insects and diseases. Second, water do not over water this plant or it can rot. It only needs water once weekly during hot, dry times and less during cooler or rainy times. When you see it start to wilt, is the time to water. Cold protection is required as your staghorn will only handle 25 temps for a short time without damage. Although relatively free from pests and diseases, they can get scale or mealybugs. This plant is sensitive to pesticides so read the pesticide label carefully and do not ever use any oil-based pesticide on it. See the next question regarding fertilizer. For information on how to plant it in a basket, mount the fern in a tree or on a board please see http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg015 Question: Do staghorn ferns need fertilization? I usually just give mine a banana and it seems fine. Answer:UF recommends a water-soluble fertilizer with a 1:1:1 ratio, for example a 10-10-10 or a 20-20-20. Fertilize monthly during the warm growing season and every other month when growth slows down. Frequent fertilization is only required when you want to grow the staghorn. If it is mature and as large as you want it, it will thrive with just 1 or 2 applications per year of a controlled-release fertilizer. Although high in phosphorus, potassium and some micronutrients, banana peels are missing nitrogen so they are not a complete fertilizer. For a healthier plant be sure to use the proper fertilization.Question:When should I prune my plumbago?Answer:Plumbago needs very little pruning except to shape it; however, it does bloom on new wood. Gently prune it just to shape it, remove any branches that could be rubbing or snip a few tips off and it should keep blooming for you. For those of you who might have deer eating your shrubs, this is one they do not like!To submit questions to Ask the Master Gardener please call 352-793-2728, Ext. 229 or email us at plantclinic@aol.com Staghorn Fern photo courtesy of UF/IFAS Gardening Solutions for Your Life; Plumbago photo courtesy of Jim Davis, Residential Horticulture Agent, UF/IFAS Sumter County Extension.

These sporty little fish are many a kids first catch, introducing them to a lifetime of fishing fun. They provide great opportunities for shoreline fishing using simple cane poles or spinning rods. License-free freshwater fishing weekends are a great time for adults to introduce kids to fishing and see if they and you would like to take up the sport. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) schedules the first of four license-free recreational freshwater fishing days on the first full weekend in April each year (April 5-6 this year), because it is such a productive fishing time, and the weather is usually pleasant. Many of Floridas recreational sport fishes, such as black bass, bluegill and redear sunfish, move into the shallows to spawn during spring, making them more available for anglers to catch. During license-free freshwater fishing weekends (the first weekend in April and the second weekend in June) no recreational fishing license is required; however, all other bag limit, season, gear and size restrictions apply on these dates for recreational fishing. The FWC invites you to take this opportunity to take your family, friends and colleagues fishing. Children dont need a fishing license until they are 16, but parents may buy them one at any time and they wont expire until they are 17. This helps the FWC attain additional revenue from the Federal Aid in Sportfish Restoration program to improve their fishing and gives the child pride in belonging to the angling community. Fishing is a low-cost, wholesome form of entertainment that often pays for itself with healthy food for the table. An annual license (MyFWC.com/License; 888-347-4356) is only $17.50 for residents. To further encourage recreational fishing, the FWC will conduct a special contest during April to collect photos of anglers. All you have to do is post a photo of your family fishing in Floridas fresh waters on Twitter or Instagram with #FWCFamilyFishing. In return for your efforts, the FWC will enter your name into a drawing for one of six surprise packages, each including a $50 gift card, compliments of Bass Pro Shops and TrophyCatch, and another $50 worth of assorted fishing lures, hooks, line and goodies to make your next trip even more productive. Submitted photos must be your own, unedited pictures, and the photo must not include inappropriate content. Photos should be taken during April while freshwater fishing in Florida and include multiple anglers enjoying their day together on the water. The FWC may subsequently use the photos for outreach purposes. In addition, freshwater anglers are encouraged to participate in the Big Catch angler-recognition program. All you need to do is catch one of 33 species of freshwater fish that exceed a specific length or weight, go to BigCatchFlorida.com, fill out some information and post a photo. Besides getting to share the excitement of your catch on the Internet, youll receive via email a custom certificate to print, and a discount for SportsmanOnCanvas.com. Big Catch encourages anglers to try different species and locations, by recognizing different levels of achievement: Master Angler (five different qualifying Big Catch species), Elite Angler (10 different qualifying Big Catch species) or Specialist (five qualifying fish of the same species). It is fun and challenging for the entire family. Here are some tips to make your bream fishing more successful. During spring, sunfish congregate to spawn in water depths from 3 to 10 feet. Bluegill continue to spawn periodically throughout summer. Bluegill opt for slightly shallower areas than redear sunfish, but its not unusual to see them use the same bedding areas simultaneously. Crickets, grubs, sand maggots or grass shrimp will all catch bedding bluegill. Use a small hook, #6 or #8, with a split-shot sinker about 6 inches up the line, and concentrate on water less than 6 feet deep. A small float helps identify strikes. For artificial baits, a 1/8ounce beetle spin with a white or chartreuse body on ultralight tackle is an excellent choice. Your local bait and tackle shop can quickly help you find what you need. The redear sunfish, or shellcracker, is another popular panfish. Although they prefer snails and clams, redear sunfish are caught most often on earthworms around the full moon in March and April, when spawning peaks. Redear prefer hard-bottom habitat and typically begin spawning about one month before bluegill. In south Florida, shellcracker spawn as early as late February and will likely begin bedding in the Panhandle around the end of May, depending on water temperatures. Shellcracker continue spawning into August. Redbreast sunfish, also known as river bream and redbellies, are the flowing water cousins of bluegill. Redbellies are more common in rivers than bluegill, and often can be found in backwater areas with less flow. The same baits that work for bluegill will catch redbreast sunfish. The spotted sunfish, or stumpknocker, is an often overlooked stream panfish. Aptly named, stumpknockers can be found in the tangle of roots at the waters edge. Although spotted sunfish rarely exceed 8 inches, these feisty species provide great sport on light tackle. Tiny (1/16ounce) beetle spins pitched close to shore can be deadly, particularly tipped with freshwater clam meat. With a fishing hole within 30-45 minutes of almost everyone in Florida, the hardest part might be picking your destination. Although your neighborhood pond or a local park may be your best bet, FWC biologists created a list of some major public water bodies they think should be great bream fisheries this year. For full descriptions of the sites, access to them and specific fishing tips for these locations, see MyFWC.com/Fishing and under Freshwater Fishing select Sites/Forecasts.

Florida Fish Busters Bulletin Staghorn Dade City resident Richard Clinton now holds the record for catching the largest brown bullhead catfish on rod and reel in Florida waters, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). On Feb. 12, Clinton was crappie fishing with his cousin on Lake Iola, a privately owned lake in Pasco County. At 9:30 a.m., something big latched onto his live minnow in 32 feet of water. When the fish surfaced, they saw that it was a huge brown bullhead. I was surprised at how strong the fish pulled once I hooked it, Clinton said. It fought harder than a 7pound bass I also caught. The astonished Clinton believed his fish weighed significantly more than the existing state record, so he contacted FWC freshwater fishery biologist Eric Johnson at the agencys Lakeland regional office. The next day, Johnson officially certified the fish as a new state record brown bullhead. The fish weighed 7.02 pounds and was 22.25 inches in length with a girth of 15.5 inches. Unbelievably, it was just a few ounces shy of the world record. The previous state record was a 5.72-pound brown bullhead caught by Robert Bengis on Cedar Creek in Duval County in 1995. Per FWC state record fish certification rules, fish must be legally caught using active hook-and-line methods by an angler with a valid Florida fishing license or who is exempt from license requirements. An FWC biologist must verify the species and weigh it on a certified scale. I knew I had a big fish, Clinton said. Im glad I was recognized for catching a state record brown bullhead. Brown bullhead catfish are native to the eastern United States and are similar in appearance to the yellow bullhead. According to the International Game Fish Association, the world record brown bullhead is a 7-pound, 6-ounce fish that Glenn Collacuro caught from Mahopac Lake in New York on Aug. 1, 2009. The FWC also recognizes anglers who catch a memorable-size fish by giving them a Big Catch certificate. These certificates are issued for 33 different species of freshwater fish and are subject to less stringent guidelines than for record fish, allowing anglers to be recognized if the fishs weight or length exceeds minimum standards. More information is available at MyFWC.com/Big Catch and in the Freshwater Fishing Regulations Summary online.

Students (Left to Right) Gianna Gaudio, Sommer Triesh, Bryan Jackson, Jose Gonzalez, and Luis Carvajel-Beltran show their origami creations. Marterrian Davis and Tyrie Jones demonstrate how to create origami objects. Origami anyone? The students in Tanner Woods 6th grade history classes at Wildwood Middle High School had a special presentation recently when they were studying Ancient China and Japan. The students participated in a lesson on origami. Origami is the art of folding paper into decorative objects. The object cannot have staples or glue; it is created by folds in the paper. The art was created in China and flourished in Japan. What made this lesson even more special was that it was taught throughout the day by students.Sixth-grade students Marterrian Davis and Tyrie Jones both enjoy origami as a hobby and taught the art to their fellow peers. Students created several types of objects including flapping birds and roses. Enrrique Miranda holds the flapping birds he created out of paper. Arcoria Godfrey holds up an origami rose. 000HJW1 M-F 9-6, Sat. 9-5, Sun. 12-5 Visit: PrestigeHomes.net 1825 Hwy. 41 North, Inverness, FL 34450 (1/4 mile North of K-Mart Plaza) 352-726-4009 1-800-841-0592 SPECIAL PROGRAMS FOR BECON SCORES 575 AND HIGHER CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT Out of Area INCLUDES SET-UP, HURRICANE ANCHORING, 2 SETS OF STEPS, SKIRTING.

PAGEA20SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, MARCH20, 2014 Pet lovers scammed by unscrupulous breeders Animal lovers beware. Puppy mills and backyard breeders are creating new ways to scam you. Puppy mills are horrific places where hundreds of dogs live forever in small filthy crates, producing one litter after another of purebred or designer puppies for sale in pet stores, flea markets, or over the internet. The dogs have little human contact, no veterinarian care, no grooming, and never know what it feels like to romp and play. Back yard breeders usually have many litters of different breeds of dogs to sell. Conditions vary with each breeder, but dogs are continuously bred having litter after litter of puppies. While all of these breeders continue to breed hundreds of thousands of puppies, hundreds of thousands more dogs are being killed in animal control facilities across the country simply because there are not enough homes for them. So where are those cute puppies coming from when you buy them from a pet store? Where are they coming from when you buy that adorable puppy on-line. And where do you think the puppies for sale at flea markets come from? The puppy you just bought from that pet store has AKC papers. But did you know that puppy mills can register their animals with the AKC? Did you know that the AKC does not restrict puppy mills from producing AKC registered puppies? The fact is that almost all puppies sold in pet stores have come from puppy mills. Legitimate breeders will never have their puppies for sale in a pet store. What about breeders selling their puppies online? Scams on websites depicting healthy and happy puppies playing together in a beautiful backyard can be just that a scam! The consumer will purchase a puppy from a picture seen on the scammers website, never actually meeting the puppy. With all contact done virtually by e-mail, the puppy that is shipped to the purchaser may not even be the same one in the picture. The purchaser often receives puppies that are sickly. No reputable breeder will sell a puppy on-line without meeting the prospective new family and checking to be sure that their puppy is going to a good home. All reputable breeders will allow you into their homes to meet both the puppies and the parents of the puppies. Many backyard breeders do not want the public to see the substandard conditions they are breeding the dogs in. Animal lovers who want to rescue must beware too. According to an ASPCA study, Rescue Group or Animal Sanctuary websites have been set up by puppy mills and backyard breeders. Scamming the good hearted animal lover, they claim to have rescued purebred puppies and dogs from shelters, bad breeders, and even puppy mills. Most always their adoption fee can be well over $1,000, and as long as the purchaser pays the fee, the puppy is shipped off with no regard to the animals future welfare. Legitimate rescue groups first and foremost, will check to be sure the prospective adopters can provide the dog a good home, and their adoption fees are far less than the scammers. Do your research before you get your next puppy or dog. Be sure you arent perpetuating the inhumane conditions that breeding animals are forced to endure year after year by cruel people. Be a part of the solution by making Adoption your first option. There are many wonderful purebreds and all American mixed breeds waiting at legitimate rescues and humane organizations to be your best friend. Linda Graves Florida DARTCritter chatter Ronnie Graves of Florida DART assists in a puppy mill bust. This dog had never been out of a small cage, never been cleaned or groomed, and had untreated tumors and cysts among other health issues. This is the life of a breeding puppy mill dog.
