Thursday, April 17, 2014Volume 128 Number 16Established in 1881 50 Cents E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.comTIMES INSIDE INSIDE QUICK CLICKSUMTER COUNTY School news Webster: From red to black First off, dont run, walk or ride or visit but participate. The Relay for Life is not a running marathon, or even a walking marathon. Participants dont have to take the first step around the lap track, if they choose not to. The Relay for Life is an organized, overnight community fundraising event. And its for you while you may not ever have to face a diagnosis of cancer, chances are very high that you will know someone who does. This event is a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society the funds provide a number of services for cancer patients, with the majority going to cancer research. In many cases, that research has changed the battlefield giving many a chance for survival that wasnt possible, even a decade ago. Teams gather and camp around a walking track and while members do take turns walking or riding the track, the event really focuses on the fundraising and the activities from food and games, to contests between teams and entertainment. The family friendly environment includes a survivors dinner and lap, luminaria ceremony and some humorous challenges. You dont even have to stay overnight, you can just drop in for a visit bring a lawn chair, get settled in for the fun and support the teams working to earn money at the event. If youre just visiting, its a wonderful opportunity to see the participants in action and learn what the event is all about. The 2014 Sumter County See RELAY Page 4A tire blow out caused an accident last Thursday afternoon, April 10, on Interstate 75 that injured several horses being transported in a horse trailer. The accident happened in the northbound lane of the interstate near the State Road 48 exit in Bushnell. Following the blow out, the truck and trailer collided with the guardrail, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. The impact caused one horse to be thrown out of the trailer and onto the roadway. A veterinarian was on the scene and sedated the horse (seen in photo) to assess injuries. Two additional horses had to be removed from the trailer. Portions of the interstate northbound lanes were temporarily closed while the injured horse was loaded onto another trailer. No additional information about the collision was available. Interstate 75 accident injuries horses What is Relay for Life? It has taken more than a decade, but Webster city representatives are breathing a sigh of relief these days. The city is no longer considered to be in a state of financial emergency. Thats the summation of the results of the citys most recent financial audit (for fiscal year 2011-12) that ends spending the past 12 years in the emergency category. Persons interested in hearing a review of that audit should attend the next Webster City Council meeting set for 6 p.m. tonight (Thursday, April 17). Along with the city no longer being considered in a financial state of emergency, the audit also no longer found Webster to be in a deteriorating financial condition. The results of the latest audit were met with praise by Webster Mayor Kelly Williams. We are so proud of how far weve come in only a year, Williams said. Though there is much hard work ahead, Webster is committed to taking control of its future, and that future looks bright. She attributes the improvement in the citys financial condition to a number of different factors. Webster has been so fortunate to have a great team in all of our staff members and elected officials. Weve all been working hard to improve the financial condition of Webster over the last year, she said. Williams said paying state loans on time, removing state debt and improving internal controls was all part of improving Websters financial standing with the State of Florida. Working with state loan representatives resulted in a $3 million debt reduction for Webster with another $1 million debt reduction expected in July, Williams said. And that was all done just by making an inquiry, she said. That inquiry and reviewing other city contracts and expenditures is helping to reduce Websters debt. That means reviewing everything from contracts for portable toilets to Internet service providers, she said. Were getting there little by little but theres still a lot of work to be done, she said. But, theres also a lot of opportunity. Williams praises some city-related employees for assisting with the transition from moving the city from being in the red to back into the black. In February 2013, Webster retained William L. Colbert, a city attorney with 41 years of practice in municipal law. He is managing partner of Stenstrom, McIntosh, Colbert, Whigham & Partlow, P.A., an 11-attorney firm with extensive municipal experience. The expert legal services and advice provided by Colbert and his firm have remediBOBREICHMAN Editor Webster Mayor Kelly Williams After a dozen years, city no longer in financial emergency See WEBSTER, Page 2

PAGEA2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL17, 2014 ated past errors on the part of the city, and led to sound, positive changes in ordinances which are already benefiting the citizens of Webster, she said. In March 2013, Webster engaged Rob Garner of GCSC, a government financial consultant with over 35 years of experience, to assist the city in bringing financial stability and sustainability back to Webster. Williams also gives substantial credit City Clerk Dana Waters and city staff. They could not be more diligent, she said. The dedication and enthusiasm of each and every one of them breathes new life into Webster. Waters is a member of the Florida Association of City Clerks and has completed her education to become a certified municipal clerk through Florida State University. Her efforts to improve financial standard operating procedures and determine ways to decrease debt on state loans is a major contributing factor in bringing the city out of a deteriorating financial condition and removing Webster from a state of financial emergency, Williams said. Financial improvement can also be accredited to the City Council, she said. During the 2013-14 budget process, the City Council took a more active role than in the past, Williams said. This increased participation acted as not only a means of establishing a higher degree of accountability, and a source of education pertaining to the citys financial status but also to provide checks and balances in the financial system. During the budget process, the City Council committed to actions that will increase the citys improving financial condition, and provide sustainability to the City of Webster. City leaders are also looking a restructuring water and sewer rates to ensure that they are cost effective. And additional sources of revenue are on the horizon. For one, the Sumter County Fairgrounds will become a sewer customer for the city as it extends service to the fairgrounds area. WEBSTERcontinued from Page 1 Big Bass Tournament makes a splash in Panasoffkee Sumter County and the Sumter County Tourism Development Council hosted the first General Sumters Last Stand Big Fish Bass Tournament at Lake Panasoffkee on Saturday, April 5. The tournament promoted Sumter County tourism and drew visitors and locals alike. The top prize of $3,000 was awarded to the catch of the day, a 6.14 pounds bass caught by Lake Panasoffkees own Allen Whitt. Afterward, spectators were treated to a funfilled, family-friendly after-party at WerdaHecamiat Fishing Resort. All in all, over $8,000 in cash and prizes were given away over the course of the afternoon to anglers and non-anglers alike. Out of the nearly 100 anglers on the lake that day, the tournament drew a total 69 competitors. It was excellent fishing on a lake surrounded by authentic, old-Florida fish camps that makes the area a top fishing spot in the state. As the anglers, their families and other spectators gathered at WerdaHecamiat to enjoy the tournament, they were treated to a carnival-like atmosphere filled with live music, games and other activities. The family-friendly fun was open to all who attended. Food and drinks were provided by the Werda-Hecamiat Restaurant the launch under new ownership coinciding with the tournament. The winning weights and anglers were: Allen Whitt a 6.14-pound catch and also the Catch of the Day, Charles Miller in second place 4.18 pounds and Brent Schwenneker 3.03 pounds for third place in the first weigh-in of the day. In the second weigh-in, it was Rick West in first with a 4.37pound catch, Mike Sherouse in second with a 3.75-pound catch and Allen Whitt in third with a 3.63-pound catch. Weigh-in three rankings were Matthew Barber in first with a 2.86 pound catch, Roger Smith in second with a 2.27 pound catch and Tommy Frederick in third with a 2.18 pound catch. Sponsors included Werda-Hecamiat Fishing Resort; Pana Vista Lodge; Idlewild Lodge; Power Pole Anchors; Ultimate Outdoor Landscaping; Polk Tractor Company; Bass Attack Trail; Sumter County Chamber of Commerce; Tom and Jerrys Airboat Rides and Tangent Media, the designers and administrators of DiscoverSumterFl.com. This event was brought to the community, in part, by a Tourism Development Tax Grant from the Sumter County Board of County Commissioners in conjunction with the Sumter County Tourism Development Council. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesPana-Vista owner Jim Veal (second from right) was honored during the tournament as the communitys Distinguished Citizen. Veals parents bought the Pana-Vista Lodge back in 1948, in a partnership, but the family bought out their partners in the following years. In 1951, Veals father, John, died and Jim and his wife Eloise took over the operation. They currently own and operate the lodge with their son, Jim, Jr. Veal has been a solid in the community serving not only among his neighbors, but on governing boards. He is shown here with Doug and Christy Smiley of Tangent Media and Dan McCormic. Allen Whitt holds up the check for the first place Catch of the Day with two of his fans, his daughters Kylee and Madison.

Plan to attend as survivors are honored and take a lap around the track, stay for the fun and entertainment and visit the decorated camps on site. Some of the things the Relay for Life helps to fund include: Hope Lodge free housing for patients and their caregivers to stay during treatment; Road To Recovery transportation for cancer patients to and from treatment; prosthesis and wigs, groups and more. According to statistics, there are an estimated 1,660,290 new cancer cases that were expected to be diagnosed last year. An estimated 580,350 Americans were expected to die of cancer in 2013, with approximately 42,370 from Florida. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the nation. In recent months, the Sumter County Times has published comments from people on why they participate in the local Relay for Life. The following are comments from longtime relay participant Tanya Mikeals:Tanya Mikeals:Why I RelayI started relaying when Sumter County had the very first relay, said Tanya Mikeals of Sumter Electric Cooperative. It was community event that SECO was taking part in. Since then, this has become very personnel for me. My father battled lung, prostate and skin cancer he was able to overcome all of these battles. It made me very aware that without the cancer research, he would not have been able to win his battle with cancer. Almost everyone knows someone (or they themselves) that has been affected by cancer. Without the contribution of the American Cancer Society and the money that is raised through the Relay for Life, our hope of ever finding a cure for cancer would never be realized. I relay now for our future. Mikeals lives in Wildwood and relays on her work team, along with her granddaughter, Skyler Kornegay. While the entertainment may vary each year, Mikeals said her favorite part of the event is the talent contest. It was a lot of fun to perform and to watch the other performers. And her choice for the funniest part of the event? When we did the Chicken dance. Mikeals has been relaying for years now, collecting memories of different events at each one. She was most touched when one of the people who participated walked the track for the entire event (18 hours), in order to raise as much money as he could. Since Relay for Life began in Sumter County, Mikeals has been team captain, entertainment and survivor chair and trash detail. Ive dressed up in silly costumes and performed a Sonny and Cher act, she said, but, the most impressive thing Ive done at Relay is to walk around the track and see people wearing their survivor T-shirts and knowing that in some small way I am contributing to this great cause. The community should come out and support the relay by forming a team or joining an existing team, by help spreading the word about Relay and what its about.Grace notes Head Starts thanksOn Thursday morning, March 27, 30 children, five teachers and several parents from the Bushnell Head Start went on a field trip to the helicopter landing pad behind the courthouse in Bushnell. The children got to see a helicopter from the Shands Air Flight Program arrive and take off again. For many of the children, it was the first time they had seen a helicopter that wasnt on television. The children were given the opportunity to talk to the pilot, look at the helicopter up close, and ask questions. It was a very exciting and educational morning for the children. The Head Start teachers and children wish to thank the Shands Air Flight Program; Brent Evans, a pilot for the Sumter County Sheriffs Department; Christine Hill, the general manager of the Rural/Metro Ambulance Service for Sumter County; and the parents who accompanied the group. Opportunities such as these help to bring real world experiences to these children that may someday inspire them with their career choices in the future. Head Start is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 program year for children who are three or four years old on or before September 1, 2014, and who meet low-income guidelines. Head Start welcomes children with disabilities or medical conditions, children who are homeless and children who have English as a second language. There is also a VPK classroom at the Bushnell Head Start. Parents who want to enroll their children in this free preschool program should bring a copy of the childs birth certificate, parent/legal guardians photo ID, proof of residency in the county, proof of income, and any diagnoses of conditions affecting the child (if applicable) to the Bushnell Head Start at 403 South Lincoln Street in Bushnell during the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm Monday through Friday. The telephone number for enquiries is 352-793-3737. Finally, thanks are in order to the Head Start Director, Heidi Rand, for the wonderful job that she has done providing all the staff members with the necessary training and support to have the Bushnell Head Start recognized by the National Head Start Association as a Program of Excellence. Thanks also to Child Development Specialists, Susan Vega and Ronjaneen Harris at the Bushnell center for all they do. Yours Sincerely, Heloise Gibbons Teachers Assistant Letters to the editor What is Relay for Life? New beatitudesPerhaps one of the most poetic and familiar passages in the gospels is the beatitudes from Jesus Sermon on the Mount. Jesus gathered his disciples together to teach them and began by saying, Blessed are the (fill in the blank), and then told them why they were blessed. For example, he said the poor in spirit are blessed because they would richly receive Gods kingdom; those who mourn are blessed because they would be comforted. The merciful would be shown mercy and the pure of heart would see God. I have a few beatitudes of my own that Id like to add to the list: n Blessed are those who can sit still in a quiet room without a Tasmanian devil inside their brain making them crazy and upping their stress. As I write this, the house is quiet. Its raining and theres thunder rumbling in the distance. Its a perfect time to be still and let God speak, but my mind wont let me. Im thinking ahead to what needs to be done next week when what I should be thinking about is what God has done for me today. Once I met a woman who lived in complete solitude no radio, no TV. Her house was so silent you could hear her cats soft paws treading on her tile floor. This woman spoke slowly. Quietly. Deliberately. Gently. Softly. Drove me nuts! Come on, honey, pick up the pace, I wanted to say. Seventeenth-century philosopher Blaise Pascal said that all human evil results from us not being able to sit still in a room. I dont know if thats true, but God once said and still says Be still. He says, In repentance and rest is your salvation. In quietness and trust is your strength (Isaiah 30:15). I think the fear of stillness is the fear of hearing God speak, that he just might say Im a disappointment. But thats a lie. There is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1). Next time its quiet maybe Ill sit still long enough to hear that. n Blessed are the skeptics and doubters, for God seems to take great delight in surprising their socks off. One of my favorite Bible people is Thomas, a disciple of Jesus who was a bit of a buzz kill. Nicknamed Doubting Thomas, he tended to see the glass halfempty and expect the worst. When the other disciples were giddy with the news that Jesus had risen from the dead, Thomas said he wouldnt believe it unless he could physically touch the Saviors wounds. Poof! Jesus appeared to him and invited Thomas to take a poke. Jesus couldve chastised him for not believing, but he didnt. He loved Thomas, despite his unbelief. I totally get Thomas. Even though Ive written two books on prayer, I truly dont believe God answers my prayers and then he goes and does and Im left sockless and filled with awe. Each time that happens Im humbled and amazed and a little bit ashamed to realize afresh how kind and merciful God is to me. n In a similar vein, blessed are the little of faith, for even a little is enough. Jesus said if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, which is teeny tiny, you can move a mountain, and we all have mountains that need moving. Its a true saying that its not the size of your faith that counts, but what or who your faith is in. Mine is in Jesus, and hes the one who created and sustains the whole world. Even so, sometimes I cant help but try to move mountains by myself, and frankly, that rarely (never) works out. n Blessed are the truly contrite, for God shall make them LOL, or at least grin like a Cheshire cat. I firmly believe that only those who know and are well-acquainted with the depth of their sin and the extent of their unrighteousness can fully appreciate the greatness and the magnitude of Gods grace and forgiveness. If you only see yourself as a small sinner, Gods grace is small, too, and what joy is there in that? But for those who see themselves as great sinners, theres no better reason to laugh the laughter of the forgiven and redeemed. We have a saying around my church: Cheer up! Youre a lot worse than you think. But Gods grace is a lot greater than you can even imagine. Blessed are those who know it.

A crowd is expected this Saturday, at Lincoln Park in Bushnell, for the annual Bushnell Community Spring Festival. The annual barbecue picnic starts at 11 a.m., so bring your lawn chairs and plan to support the event. The picnic is a way to honor seniors and veterans, while offering residents a chance to fellowship. From barbecue to homemade potato salad and baked beans, the picnic usually includes some homemade peach cobbler too. Therell be live music, games and plenty of fun, as friends and family gather. The club was created to help seniors in the community through the Bushnell Mens Club the group hosting the barbecue. They came together several years ago to provide help for residents and to create fellowship events, according to member and event coordinator Jesse Hill. Their network of communication in the neighborhood allows them to keep up with residents needs, according to Hill. The mens group meets at 2 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month. The meeting location changes each month. For more information, contact the club at P.O. Box 1586 Bushnell, Fl. 33513.SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL17, 2014, PAGEA5 Ever wanted to give a mild exercise boot camp a chance, but dont want to spend big bucks to see if you like it? Or would you like to get the entire family involved some kind of family exercise program? Then its time to Get Fit Bushnell and get ready to get your sweat on in answer to a challenge issued by G Fit Studios owner Matt Ellis. Ellis tossed out the challenge and hes even working to make it possible for local families, kicking the challenge into action by offering the community a free once-a-month family boot camp, starting next week on Thursday, April 24. The Operation Get Fit Bushnell challenge begins at 7 p.m. at the Kenny Dixon Sports Complex, on the front football field for good music and a good time. Ellis said participants need to bring a bottle of water, family and a friend. The gathering is geared for the whole family, basically from ages six years and up, and will be a fun and energized workout, he said. While it is a boot camp, continuous movement style workout, Its a beginners level fitness program, and there wont be anything that even a six-year-old cant do, he said. He hopes to at least get the residents motivated to get out and do the exercise once a month. Theres no sign-up, just show up, he said, adding hes got commitments from about 100 people so far. Operating GFit for the past year, Ellis said he has a client base of about 140 people. I was approached by a good friend of mine to start Gfit, he said, noting that he and that friend, Josh Miller, created their own brand. Ellis played football and baseball for the Wildcats and the Raiders before earning a football scholarship to Jacksonville University. He continued in sports, moving through the ranks of arena football and then to European football. These days hes back at South Sumter, but this time, hes coaching. That background in sports and the fact that the obesity rate in the United States (even the rate for childhood obesity) is absolutely crazy, sparked his interest in the business partnership with Miller and the desire to offer training and support. While he knows the once-amonth class wont be enough to get a person into condition, hes hoping to at least spark them. Hes hoping they might join Gfit or begin to eat healthy or at least start exercising, he said. He hopes it will be a launch to move into that healthy lifestyle, that will help prolong lives. As someone who grew up in Sumter County, he is taking those extra steps to just do something special for community. Ellis offers a variety of programs and workouts at GFit, some are geared toward adults and others toward kids. He has a kids training camp every other weekend now, with about two dozen youth attending. He also plans a youth summer class. The gym is currently located next to Pizza Hut, but is relocating to the former NAPA auto parts store on Main Street. For more information, call 352-446-0451 or find Gfit Bushnell Studios on Facebook. Get ready, its time to Get Fit Bushnell BRENDALOCKLEAR Staff Writer Helping out SCARC ...

PAGEA8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL17, 2014 COMMUNITY The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting event to celebrate the new ownership of Cypress House Bed and Breakfast. Cypress House Bed and Breakfast is a quaint bed and breakfast that specializes in equestrian activities. They offer summer day camps, lessons, trail rides and more. For more reservations and information call 352-568-0909. Cypress House ribbon cutting ...This year the Sumter County Retired Educators Association, started in 1971 and chartered in 1973, celebrated sixty years of staying connected and in many ways making a difference for our educators, those still working and those retired. The celebration held in the Fellowship Hall of the First Baptist Church of Wildwood included the recognition of many whose membership has spanned up to 30 years. Jeannie Brockman of Gainesville was an honored guest. During her years of membership she served at different times as district director and as president. The celebration began with a luncheon followed by a program that included a patriotic sing-along with piano accompaniment provided by Marc Fennimore, Minister of Music at the church. A solo by Sandra DeHart, secretary at the church, highlighted the freedom and liberty that we have as a nation and can have as Christians. No party is complete without games; they challenged our memory and tickled our funny bone. Debbie Caruthers did a great job of dressing up the hall to create a true party atmosphere for our enjoyment and also arranged for the luncheon. Laura Schuyler, president of SCREA, presented a brief history of the national Retired Educators Association. In 1944 a retired principal from Los Angeles, Dr. E. P. Andrus, set out to visit a former faculty member that she heard was ill Shock is an understatement describing her reaction when she found the retired teacher living in a chicken coop at the back of property owned by someone else, her meager retirement and life savings exhausted by medical bills. Subsequent investigation and actions by Dr. Andrus led to legislation in California to improve the benefits for retired teachers. Her efforts gained nationwide attention and, in 1947, the National Retired Teachers Association was formed. Many of us were surprised to learn that the success of this organization led to the formation of AARP, the national organization committed to representing the interest of all retirees, not just teachers. It is the desire of SCREA to continue to be a part of protecting the benefits for current retirees and the gains made in the retirement benefits for future retirees. This requires constant vigilance and at times appropriate action. All retired educators in Sumter County are encouraged consider joining us and being a part of what we do. The example of the strength and power of a bundle of sticks in the making of a fire compared to that of a single stick illustrates the value of membership in an organization such as ours. There really is strength in numbers. Please join us at our next meeting at 10:45 AM on May 1 in the Fellowship Hall at the First Baptist Church, 125 W. Anderson Ave. in Bushnell. Lunch will be served. Any questions can be directed to Mrs. Shuyler at 352-793-4555. SCREA members discover a surprise in their history The April 12 meeting of the Granville Beville 2234 Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy was held at the Historic Village of Clermont. Those in attendance were Joyce White, Belle Phillips, Carol Tomlinson, Carolyn Shaw, Irish Wolf, Peggy Griffin and Shanda Shaw. Clermonts Historic Village has been developed and maintained by the City of Clermont and the South Lake County Historical Society. The different houses on the property are open to the public on Fridays from 1 to 4 p.m. There are special tours for different organizations who would like a guided tour. The guide today was Mrs. Deloris Gano Walker. The first house that was visited was the Townsend House. James and Sallie Townsend were the first black residents to settle in Clermont. They started the first school for black children and Sallie served as a midwife for both white and black women in the area. The house was opened to the public in 2005. The Kern House was built by Alexander and Eleonora Kern in the mid-1880s. Mr. Kern was one of the original 31 pioneers who signed the legal notice to form the City of Clermont. Originally built on Montrose Street, it was moved to the village in 2006 and opened to the public in 2008. Also on the grounds are the original Cooper Memorial Library, a replica of the First School House, a Replica of an Outhouse, and a Quonset Hut used by the Military during World War II. The Quonset Hut is now a Military Museum which houses old uniforms, patches, ration cards, pictures, and other artifacts of World War II. After the guided tour, the Chapter members ate lunch at Cheesers Palace Caf. Members brought items to prepare a box to send overseas to our proud soldiers. The next meeting will be at the home of Peggy Griffin on May 10.

PAGEA10SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL17, 2014 FROM THE GROUND UP Question:Please look at this picture of my holly tree. It was planted a year ago and has never really done well. What is wrong?Answer:Your holly is planted too deeply. This is a problem we see constantly in our Plant Clinics. A tree or shrub planted too deeply wont die right away but will continue to decline until it dies. Your trunk is perpendicular to the soil straight lines; you should always see the root flare 1-2 at least above ground. One of our agents explains it this way: look at your neck; as it reaches your shoulders it flares out. In the case of your holly the shoulders are the root flare of the tree and the flare is below ground. Take a look at this picture above; no root flare. The excessive amount of lichens on your holly trunk was an indicator that the tree was stressed. You can dig the dirt away from the trunk but it will fill back in again so this is not a permanent fix. The permanent fix is to dig the tree up and replant it.Question:There are caterpillars with 4 fuzzy humps on their back coming out of the oak trees and all over the side of my house and shrubs. What are these and what can I do?Answer:It is the annual attack of the Tussock Oak Moth caterpillars! We get very busy answering questions in March and April about this critter. Annually, this moth comes out of the oak trees in its larval form. It feeds on plants and then weaves a cocoon that sticks to everything better than any glue invented to date. Even a pressure washer wont get them all! They usually dont do severe damage to plants and will only linger for a short time before they become moths. UF does not recommend using a pesticide as control is difficult and you dont want to kill all the good insects while trying to control this caterpillar. There are many birds, reptiles and other insects that eat the Oak Moth caterpillar also. Try these 3 steps: 1. Hose them off the side of your house and pick them off the shrubs (tweezers are a good item for your gardening tools). 2. Sweep them up and dump them in a bucket of soapy water. 3. Be patient. About 50% of the caterpillars are parasitized anyway. An interesting experiment for children and adults is to collect some fresh cocoons and place in a ventilated glass jar. Within 10 days you should see adult moths and several natural enemies that have hatched. This is not one of Floridas stinging caterpillars. However, the hairs are like fiberglass and can irritate your skin. If one gets on you, dont brush it away as you can brush the hairs into your skin; just gently flip them off.

K alan A gers4-H Youth Development Agent UF/IFAS Sumter County ExtensionThe school year is almost over and now is the time to start planning your childs summer. This summer why not consider Florida 4-H Residential Camping, particularly Camp Ocala. Camp Ocala takes place in the heart of the Ocala National Forest and is open to all Florida Youth. This year camp is scheduled for July 21 to July 25. With all of the summer camps offered to our youth, one might be wondering why Camp Ocala? This residential camp supports the mission of 4-H Youth Development by using a learn-bydoing approach to help youth gain the knowledge and skills they need to be responsible, productive citizens. Like other camps, Camp Ocala is a great way for youth to meet new people, make new friends and experience the great outdoors. What makes Camp Ocala different is that it engages youth in activities that focus on four essential elements of positive youth development: Belonging: Encourages a sense of fellowship Indep end ence: Learning to better understand themselves and become independent thinkers M astery : Immersive activities to master new life skills G ener osity: Presenting opportunities to value and practice service to others. While using these four essential elements campers take part in an exciting week of outdoor recreation and educational activities planned around our theme, Welcome to Our Jungle! For more information on this great opportunity please visit our website at http://sumter.ifas.ufl.edu/. Information will be under the 4-H Youth Development Events and Activities Page. You can also contact the 4-H Youth Development office by emailing kagers02@ufl.edu or by calling (352) 793-2728. 2014 Camp Ocala Money Saving Ti ps In todays economy we are always looking at ways to cut expenses and save money. When it comes to being energy efficient we are always looking for new ways to lower bills and cut cost. Here are a few low-cost Ways to Save Energy: Airdry dishes instead of using the dishwashers drying cycle. Turn off computer and monitor when they are not in use for extended periods of time. Plug home electronics into power strips and turn power strips off when not in use. Lower thermostat on hot water heater to 120F. Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes. Clean/replace AC filters monthly; cleaning or replacing dirty air filters can save 5% of the energy used to run the AC system. Close the air vent in the laundry room. Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs. Caulk or weatherstrip air leaks; visit this Caulking and Weatherstripping page for how-to information. Repair leaky air ducts: these are recognized as a major source of energy waste and can prevent HVAC systems from working properly (request a duct system test from your homes energy provider). Close the blinds and shades during the day to keep out the suns heat (in the summer). Plant deciduous trees around the home (particularly near windows) to reduce sunlight loading during summer. The deciduous trees lose their leaves during winter, letting sunlight in. Get a Free Energy Audit. A representative from your energy provider company may come to your home and inspect windows and doors for leaks and look at the insulation, water heater, and piping. Call your provider to see if they offer this energy audit service for free. Calculate how much energy your home uses at the Department of Energys Home Energy Saver. Buy a New Appliance: EnergyStar is a government-backed program to help you protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. EnergyStar appliances use significantly less energy and water than older models. In addition, most large appliances are sold with a yellow energy efficiency label. These labels should be carefully examined and compared with similar products for the most energyand costefficient product for you. For more information and a list of EnergyStar certified products, check out http://www.energystar.gov to help you save money when buying new appliances.

Martha Maddox UF/IFAS Extension A gopher tortoise strolling across a road or through a backyard or field is a common sight during spring in Florida. Yet as tortoises become increasingly active this time of year, they are vulnerable to being struck by vehicles and injured or killed. Dont forget to look out for these slow-moving reptiles with their bony-plated shells and elephantine legs. They leave their burrows in search of green plants to eat and a tortoise to become their mate. From now through May, females will be laying eggs the size of ping-pong balls in the sandy apron outside their burrows. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) encourages drivers to slow down on highways to help protect the states gopher tortoises. If a gopher tortoise is crossing the road, it is OK to pick it up and move it to safety but keep it pointed in the direction it was heading and do not put this terrestrial animal into the water. People also can help by downloading and using a new smartphone app to report to the FWC when and where they spot gopher tortoises. The free Florida gopher tortoise app recently became available on iPhone and Android. When users of the app take a photograph of a tortoise or its burrow, the photo and its GPS coordinates will be sent automatically to the FWC. App-generated data collected by citizen scientists will help guide conservation of this threatened species. Biological information and a quiz testing the users knowledge of the only tortoise east of the Mississippi River also are included in the app. The FWCs Gopher Tortoise Management Plan spells out goals and actions to protect the tortoises, their burrows sheltering hundreds of other species and their habitat. Prescribed burning is critical to maintaining the sandy, open fields and forests, and the growth of soft-stemmed plants that tortoises need to survive. To access the management plan, go to MyFWC.com/Wildlife and select Managed Species. People can report injured or dead gopher tortoises to the FWC by calling 850-921-1030 during weekdays or by contacting the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922. Harming a gopher tortoise, its burrows or eggs is against the law. For A guide to living with gopher tortoises, go to MyFWC.com/GopherTortoise and click on Education Corner.

The Citrus High softball team (19-5) did beat Wildwood High (1-15) 10-0 in six innings Thursday night at the Vicki Overman Field. However, as mercy rule wins go, it was underwhelming. Playing a very talented Canes team, the Wildcats made only two errors and kept it a game for four innings before the Canes put it away. Pitcher Toni Zito and the defense didnt let the Canes run away until the fifth and sixth inning. Citrus High pitcher Kelli Abramowich had a perfect game for three innings and ended up with a two-hitter with nine strikeouts. Wildwoods Myeshia Corbin had a pair of hits off Abramowich. Citruss Chelby Lawler drove in three runs, scored two and blasted two doubles. Erica Corlew was 3-for-4 with two RBIs, one run and a double. Jordan Josey had two hits and scored two runs. The Wildcats pitcher was grateful that her defense was solid. Im very proud of our defense, said Zito, who struggled with her control but struck out three Canes before Jaecy Greene relieved her in the sixth inning. They hit a lot off me. My defense was on point tonight. The Canes coach appreciated the Wildcat effort. Kelli started off strong, said Citrus coach Larry Bishop. Thats what we were looking for. Hats off to Coach Cardona at Wildwood. They are building for the future and they are doing a great job. The attitudes of the kids are great. They battle to the end. So hats off to Wildwood. The Wildwood coach knew his team was better than the score indicated. We are a team that is made up of over 50 percent middle school right now and for us to go out and play that kind of game against Citrus speaks volumes, said Wildwood coach Adam Cardona. We are having to train someone to pitch. We are down one. Passion Mills hurt her arm and is defensively done for the season. We are in a position where we can use her offensively. We had Jaecy Greene step up behind the plate and in the circle. We had people step up who helped us out. You hate the score but it could have been worse. LARRYBUGG Times Correspondent Will Norton, of Center Hill, took this pair of 8points for a record during a hunting trip in Georgia late last year. The bucks weighed in a 170 and 193 pounds. Norton is pictured on the left. His hunting buddy, Marvin Lancaster, is shown on the right. Making the decision to adopt a pet should not be made lightly. The decision should be made with the knowledge of cost for food, yearly veterinarian expenses, and any extra unexpected costs. Responsible pet parents make a commitment to care for their pet for their entire life. While many animals basic daily requirement are met; such as food, water, shelter, we should ask ourselves if they have a happy life. A dog who is fed every day and offered clean water may be chained outside to a dog house that offers him shelter, yet this is a sad and lonely existence for a social animal. To exist without enjoying life is a tragedy. The requirements of a responsible pet parent should not only necessitate giving the basic care to the animal, but include ensuring the animals happiness. Enjoyment and contentment varies with each individual pet just as it vairies with each individual person. That is why it is so important to adopt the pet that suits your lifestyle. We should all strive to give our pets enriched lives. An avid outdoors person who loves outdoor activities should look to adopt and active animal that can share the same activities. This will ensure that your new furry family member will be a happy companion always eager to join you. A moderately active person can find a pet that enjoys moderate activity that they can share together. And a person who is a homebody and enjoys a sedate lifestyle can find a pet that is content living in a quiet home. Ask yourself if you are doing all you can to give your pet a happy life. Afterall, their normal lifespans are short, and it is up to us to make sure that the time they have with us is a happy and contented time. If we include our pets in our daily lives and activities, not only to we ensure their happiness, but we find that they enrich our lives more than we could have ever imagined.

For the best results for your canning creations, follow these four simple tips for canning success: 1.Pick em right.When picking berries, keep in mind these fruits have high water content and are very fragile. So, use smaller containers when picking them so the berries do not get crushed under their own weight. 2.Rinse, dont soak.Due to their fragile nature, the berries should be lightly rinsed to remove surface dirt. Do not allow them to sit in water for very long because they tend to take on more water and will become mushy.3.Firm and ripeWhen selecting berries for jellied products, ripe berries are best, but not overripe ones. Choose those that have good flavor and are still firm to the touch. For strawberries, look for the smaller, juicier berries instead of larger types that are available today. Fresh,flavorfulcanningrecipes4.Mix flavors.While many people prefer their jams to be one flavor, mixing two or more different types of berries together produces great jams with good flavor. Try a mix consisting of blackberry and red raspberry, or strawberry with red raspberry. Another great com bi nation includes pureed berries and peaches mixed together to make jam. Red raspberry peach jam is always a huge hit. Four canning tips for great jams and jellies For canning or preservation questions, call the Mrs. Wages Customer Care Center at 1-800-647-8170, MondayFriday 8:00 a.m.5:00 p.m. CST.

The Lake-Sumter State College Foundation awarded 22 grants to faculty and staff to fund special projects that will directly benefit students attending Lake-Sumter State College. A total of $41,683 was distributed to faculty and staff who were chosen by a competitive application process. The projects that were funded include: lab equipment for biology and chemistry classes, a graphic calculator rental program, veteran student lounge, equipment, mannequins for emergency response training, tablets for college outreach, equipment for the Lineman program, scholarships for Orientation leaders, and much more. Thom Kieft, Math Department chair shared that the the graphing calculator rental program funded by the LSSC Foundation will allow students to rent calculators at a fraction of the cost of purchasing one of their own. Without the support from the Foundation the mathematics department would not be able to offer this opportunity to our students. Many of the math courses at the college algebra level and higher have a graphic calculator as a course requirement, yet these calculators cost over $100, with the launch of this program students will be able to rent a calculator for a semester for less than a third of that cost, and countless students will benefit. In order for Lake-Sumter State College to continue to provide excellence in education in serving our students, it is important to keep up with technological advancements and enhanced instructional methods that allow our Faculty and Staff to energize the learning process, and the mini grants provided by the LakeSumter State College Foundation, Inc. are aimed to do just that, said Rosanne Brandeburg, executive director of the Foundation. The Lake-Sumter State College Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that acts as a direct support organization for the college. For information on giving opportunities to the Lake-Sumter State College Foundation, contact Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive Director at (352) 365-3518 or email at BrandebR@lssc.edu.

Few lawmakers gave it much thought until Senator Gaylord Nelson brought it to their attention. At the time, the damage that had been done to the environment was just starting to be discovered. Lake Erie was in bad shape, along with several other areas throughout the country. To make politicians more aware of the need to protect the environment, Senator Nelson asked President John F. Kennedy to go on a conservation tour in 1963. President Kennedy agreed, but the tour did not bring the results that Senator Nelson hoped for so he came up with a new idea in 1969. Senator Nelson invited people throughout the country to participate in a demonstration on April 22, 1970, to raise awareness of the need to protect the environment. The day was called Earth Day and was a huge success! Today, communities across America continue to celebrate Earth Day in many ways. Each of the following is a product that people often recycle. Fill in the blanks to name that product. Name That Product Name That Product What Rhymes with Save? Jokes and Riddles Q: What did the beach say to the tide coming in? A: Long time no sea.
