City voters who are used
to waiting until December
before heading out to the
voting polls to cast their
ballots in city elections
would be a bit late for the
upcoming election.
Voting processes have
changed for three Sumter
cities. When the General
Election comes around on
Tuesday, Nov 6, city voters
will also be heading to the


polls to cast their ballots
for candidates in Wild-
wood, Center Hill and
Bushnell city elections.
Instead of voting at the
cities' respective city halls,
voters will instead go to
their regular voting
precinct and their city
election ballot will be in-
cluded on their General
Election ballot, according
to Sumter Supervisor of
Elections Karen Krauss.
No voting changes have
been made for either Web-
ster or Coleman elections.


Those city elections will
continue as they have in
past years, in December
There are some definite
advantages to voters in
Wildwood, Center Hill and
Bushnell, Krauss said.
"For one thing, city resi-
dents will now have the op-
portunity of taking
advantage of early voting
because the city ballot is
on the General Election
ballot," she said.
Early voting for the Gen-
eral Election runs from
Oct. 27 through Nov 3 from

7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Voters can also find out
how their city candidates
did by watching the elec-
tion results as they come in
that evening at the Super-
visor of Elections Office,
Krauss said.
Consolidating the city
election ballot onto the
General Election ballot
comes after almost a year
of discussions between
Krauss and city represen-
tatives.
"I talked to a lot of coun-
ties over time and several


D


counties do have city elec-
tions on with the general
election," Krauss said.
It allows cities to take ad-
vantage of the expertise
that the Supervisor of
Elections Office can pro-
vide without costing the
cities any additional
money
"There's a big savings to
everyone involved,"
Krauss said. "We do it all
for them (the cities). We

Recently, Bushnell Elementary School
sponsored an All Pro Dads breakfast
About 225 students and parents partici-
pated in the breakfast.
BES plans on having an All Pro Dads
breakfast once a month as long as the

turnout was great and very positive.
Many of the parents shared that they
were excited about the program and plan
on attending future breakfasts.

To quote the program
guide from All Pro Dads,
'All Pro Dad's Day is a
simple idea with a pro-
found impact. It's a one-
hour monthly breakfast
held before school where
fathers and their children
meet with other dads and
kids in the school cafete-
ria or a local restaurant.
During this time, they
discuss a wide range of
family topics, spend time
together, create fun mem-
ories, and are equipped
with resources to
strengthen their relation-
ship."

and protection.
During their time at the
academy, recruits volun-
teered in the evenings and
weekends at events to raise
money for the Ronald Mc-
Donald House.
They assisted with a
fundraiser for Pyramid,
Inc., an organization that
provides workforce,
lifestyle programs for de-
velopmentally disabled
adults, and with whom the
academy has developed a


special relationship. The
recruits also participated
in three blood drives for
the Southeastern Commu-
nity Blood Center, all while
learning how to be the kind
of public servant Florida
needs and deserves.
"We are proud that these
men and women have se-
lected law enforcement as
their career, and especially
since they have chosen the
Florida Highway Patrol,"
said Col. David Brierton,
director of the Florida
Highway Patrol.
"The expectations for
quality and professional
law enforcement services
by both the residents and
visitors of Florida require


our troopers to be the
best."
During the commence-
ment ceremony, FHP hon-
ored Recruit Robert
Roxbury with the Execu-
tive Director's award for
achieving the highest
grade point average at the
academy
The Patrol presented the
Director's award to Re-
cruit James White for
demonstrating extraordi-
nary courtesy and dedica-
tion during the training.

Will you help them?

Become a Guardian ad Litem
Hundreds of children are removed from their homes
every year in Marion, Hernando, Lake, Sumter and Cit-
rus counties, due to alleged abuse, neglect or abandon-
ment.
They are now part of the dependency court proceed-
ings and they need someone who will speak up for them.
And, that's where a court appointed Guardian ad Litem
(GAL) can advocate for them.
The GAL volunteer, 21 years of age or older, once
trained, certified and having completed a clean criminal
background check, works as part of a team with a volun-
teer supervisor and program attorney.
The GAL can then represent the child's best interests -
to help ensure a safe, caring, stable and permanent en-
vironment for that child.
It is a sobering fact that there are currently nearly 1,800
children in the 5th Judicial District who are found de-
pendent in our juvenile court system and we are short
more than 400 GALs!
That means more than 320 children are without a GAL
advocate speaking up for them.
So, don't wait to help them out! We have an excellent
Pre-service Training Program for you, at a convenient lo-
cation inlnverness starting Nov. 1.
Get involved become a GAL
Call Lynn Sennett at 274-5231
They're waiting for your call!

Hospice seeks volunteers


Nonprofit Cornerstone Hos-
pice will be conducting a two-
day volunteer training towards
the required certification to be-
come a Hospice Volunteer for
anyone in Sumter County who
may be able to assist in com-
munity and special events, vet-
eran recognition projects,
visiting patients, sewing proj-
ects, reading a book or maga-
zine to a patient, simply
keeping a patient company,
greeting visitors, helping at the
office and much more. Volun-
teers find satisfaction and a
sense of accomplishment in
helping others and making an
important difference in the
lives of patients and families.
Veterans of the U.S. armed
forces with a little time on their
hands are especially encour-
aged to contact us.
Volunteers become a friend
and companion to patients and
their families offering a source
of strength, encouragement
and support simply by visiting


from time to time, or allowing
the main caregiver to tend to
other obligations. Hospice has
a patient or service that may be
performed by any interested
person who maybe able to con-
tribute from a couple of hours
per week or a few days per
month.
The next Sumter County Vol-
unteer Training will be held in
Sumterville on Wed., Oct. 17
and Wed., Oct. 24 from 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. each day This is a
16-hour certification and inter-
ested participants should plan
to attend both training days.

will be provided. Please pre-
register by calling volunteer
specialists Kim Carter (352)455-

Letters to the editor


There he goes again!
In the first so called "stimulus"
the former "community activist,
Jr. Senator and current occupier
of the Whitehouse, bypassed the
American "workers" and gave
those "stimulus" dollars to "big
business; Banks, Insurance com-
panies & the auto industry with
no effect on jobs or the economy!
Now the former "community
activist, Jr. Senator and current
occupier of the Whitehouse is
going to print more money to do
what, buy bonds! Again bypass-
ing the American worker!
If the former "community ac-
tivist, Jr. Senator and current oc-
cupier of the Whitehouse would
have done the tried and proven
method of putting that money "in
the hands of the consumer....our
economy and the jobs would
have turned around the next
day!
So much for; "doing all I could
have done"....You have to ask
yourself, who truly is for the

Helping kids
The Florida Department of
Corrections and the Corrections
Foundation again are proud to
partner to provide computers to
non-profit schools, church-based
and community-based organiza-
tions that serve children's needs
through the Computers for
Florida's Kids program.
Computers can be donated
through the Corrections Founda-
tion to Cross City Correctional
Institution or through the De-
partment's Tallahassee Central
Office. To coordinate donations
outside that area, contact the
Corrections Foundation. Dona-
tions are eligible for a tax deduc-
tion.
Carefully-selected and spe-
cially-trained inmates at Cross
City Correctional Institution re-
furbish these computers and
load Windows operating systems
onto the refurbished computers.
The refurbished computers are
then ready to be awarded to or-
ganizations serving children's
needs.
"This program is important not
just because it gives computers
to kids who need them for school
or to learn technological skills,"
said Deputy Secretary Mike
Crews. "It gives inmates the op-


portunity to learn re-entry and
job skills that will help them
make positive choices and be-
come productive members of
their community"
One partner in this initiative,
Creative Recycling Systems, re-
cently donated 50 monitors, 100
keyboards, mice and power
cords and strongly believes in
the Computers for Florida's Kids
program.
"Giving back to our community
is the foundation Creative Recy-
cling Systems was built on," says
Jon Yob, CEO at Creative Recy-
cling Systems. "Working together,
with other selfless community
members, giving back to those
less fortunate is one of our
strongest pillars."
Computers that will be ac-
cepted for donation must meet
certain standards Pentium 4
processor or equivalent with a
minimum 512 MB of memory and
a CD/DVD drive or Macs -Per-
forma, Centris, Power Mac, or G3
and up. Peripherals in working
condition will also be accepted:
color monitors, keyboards, mice,
power and monitor cables, and
CD/DVD drives, network cards,
Pentium motherboards, RAM
SIMMS, 120+ GB hard drives.
Full details on the Computers for
Florida's Kids program, how to
donate used computer equip-
ment, can be found on the Cor-
rections Foundation website.
The Computers for Florida's
Kids Program has had great suc-
cess over the years, refurbishing
over 7,000 computers that were
then given back to the commu-
nity
If you know of a school or or-
ganization who would like to re-
quest a computer, visit the

Time to tee off for kids
For all of us who deeply care
about the children and families
in our communities, the preven-
tion of abuse and neglect,
strengthening our communities,
and children placed out of their
homes-life has never been
more demanding.
The prestigious Black Dia-
mond Quarry Course will host


the fourth annual Tee Off For
Kids Golf Tournament on Colum-
bus Day, October 8,. Located in
Citrus County, Black Diamond
has been named one of Amer-
ica's 100 Greatest Courses by
Golf Digest, one of the Top 100
Courses in the U.S. by GOLF
Magazine, and is listed as
Golfweek's 15th Best Residential
Course in the United States. Pro-
ceeds from the tournament will
support at-risk families. These
dollars are used to meet specific,
short-term needs of carefully
screened families, relieving situ-
ations that could otherwise lead
to abuse and neglect. By stopping
tragedy before it starts, this fund-
ing keeps kids out of the State
welfare system and where they
belong-safe at home with their
families.
Participating golf foursomes
will enjoy a continental break-
fast and lunch, a gift bag with a
Black Diamond golf shirt, a
chance to win $5,000 in the put-
ting contest, and the closing cere-
mony with heavy hors d'oeuvres.
A new feature to the tournament
this year is an Acura TSX for the
hole-in-one prize, provided by
Jenkins Acura in Ocala. We also
have a celebrity guest, Ron Zook
of CBS Sports (former head foot-
ball coach at the University of
Florida and University of Illi-
nois). Coach Zook will be avail-
able to meet players and take
photos.
Help us build better lives and
stronger communities by joining
us in October for a day of food,
fun and incredible golf at this
unique event. Sponsorships are
available for the Putting Contest,
Beverage Stations, Flags,
Tees/Holes and others. In addi-
tion to raising much-needed
funds, Kids Central will draw at-
tention to the issues families in
our communities are facing.
Your involvement in this is cru-
cial in building the support our
children need. For more infor-
mation or to register please con-
tact Danielle Damato Doty,
Director of Community Develop-
ment/PIO at 352.274.2245 or visit

of Florida to coordinate child

100 leads, no suspect in sexual abduction case


BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Nearly two weeks after a
Sumter teen was report-
edly kidnapped and sexu-
ally assaulted, authorities
continue their search for
the suspect.
The 14-year-old girl was
reportedly kidnapped at
knifepoint after she got off
her school bus in the More-
land Park area, blind-
folded, then driven a short
distance before being
taken into some type of
structure.
Because the victim was
unable to tell authorities if
the structure was a mobile
home, shed or motor home,
only that it was a "small,
boxed-in area." they've


checked every outbuilding
they could find in the area.
One of those outbuildings
was searched as late as this
Tuesday after they man-
aged to make contact with
the owner, according to
Sumter sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers.
The abduction report-
edly occurred sometime
after 4:15 p.m. on Wednes-
day, Sept. 12, and since that
time, authorities have fol-
lowed up on leads that
have taken them across the
state.
"We've received over 100
tips that we have followed
up on. Our detectives have
gone as far north as
Alachua County and as far
east as Volusia County,"
Caruthers said.
He pointed out that


while they've been search-
ingthe area all week- even
second shift staff have been
coming in to helpm inves-
tigators made a concen-
trated effort to be at the bus
stop, the Pepper Tree
Apartments, the local con-
venience store and a
nearby strip mall at the
same time the following
week (Wednesday, Sept.
19th). The idea was to in-
terview people who might
have been in the same lo-
cation a week earlier and
seen something.
They've also been work-
ing with a Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
criminal analyst and going
through sexual offender
files. Caruthers said
they've checked any of-
fender who drives a Wind-


star mini-van and even con-
tacted mini-van owners
who live in the vicinity of
offenders to see if any of
the vehicles might have
been loaned out.
They're checking a ra-
dius of several miles and
three counties in the local
search Lake, Sumter and
Marion.
"The lead detective was
out trying to follow some
things up today," Caruthers
said.
Going back to that
Wednesday, the teen was
last seen getting off the
school bus about 4:15 p.m.
near the intersection of
county roads 230 and 205 B.
Her book bag was discov-
ered on the road by her res-
idence.
Authorities searched for


hours and were finally able
to locate her about 9 p.m.
that same night, through
her cell phone that's
when she began texting
family members, Caruthers
said. She texted that she
was seeing lights nearby
from the wooded area she
was in and was informed
the lights were from law
enforcement vehicles. She
came out of the woods
shaken up and was taken to
the command center at an
abandoned convenience
store, just north of the over-
pass in Wildwood. They
worked to make sure she
was safe and put together a
timeline of where she had
been, Caruthers said. The
girl told authorities that
after she got off the bus, a
man pulled up to her in an


older model blue mini-van.
She was able to flee from
the suspect after he
"passed out," Caruthers
said.
The suspect is described
as a white male, 40 to 50
years old, thin build with
medium length brown hair,
a mustache and a two-inch
scar on his left chest.
He was wearing a white
T-shirt with a deer logo on
the front and rear of the
shirt.
The vehicle is described
as a 1990s model min-van,
medium blue with gray
cloth interior and a rear
bench seat.
Anyone with information
regarding the case should
contact Det. Darren Norris
at 569-1680 or call Crime-
line at 1-800-423-8477.

SI don't want a cheap funeral, but I can save a lot

Sof money by planning now...so why not?

I'm a person who plans ahead and I'm also pretty careful with
the money I make.
Since someday my family and I will need a reliable funeral home,
why not make my arrangements now and lock in a low price that I can
control?
The old saying is true: you can't take your money with you. But,

Frost Cupcakes
Like a Pro
It's easy to create these Mini
Vanilla Cupcakes with Mango
Buttercream. With a few
simple tricks, they'll appear
as though you selected them
from a professional bakery.
Just follow these simple steps
from the kitchen pros:
Use a large, star-burst
piping tip in a pastry
bag or large zip top bag.
Set the bag over a tall
glass or measuring cup,
and fold the bag edges
into a cuff over the rim
of the glass.
Scoop frosting into the
bag using a rubber
spatula. Fill it about two-
thirds full.
Take the bag out of the
glass and twist the top
closed.
Hold the bag just barely
above the top of the
cupcake at a 90 degree
angle.
Squeeze the bag to pipe
a spiral of icing, starting
at the outer edge and
working inward.
Stop squeezing and pull
the tip straight up.

___WEDDING CELEBRATIONS___

WITH TROPICAL FLAIR
FAMILY FEATURES

Between engagement parties, bridal showers and brunches with new family and friends, there are plenty of opportunities to
celebrate the happy couple. Why not bring a taste of the tropics to your celebrations with mangos?
Each of these elegantly simple recipes is inspired by the color, texture and sweet, slightly exotic flavors of mangos and
you won't need to hire a caterer to pull it off.
When choosing mangos, don't focus on color. Instead, gently squeeze. A ripe mango will be slightly soft to the touch, similar
to a ripe peach or avocado.

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2, 11, AND 12
(Legislative)

Ballot Title: STATE COURTS.-

Ballot Summary: Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary.
The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for the practice and procedure in all
courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a
two-thirds vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision
eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each
house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a
majority vote of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could
readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed by the Legislature, but if the Legislature
determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits
the court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislature's prior approval. Under current
law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be
repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature.
Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted by a
majority vote of the legislators present.
Under current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees
provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments by the Governor are not subject to
confirmation. This revision requires Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the
appointee can take office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the appointment, the judicial nominating
commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose prior appointment to fill the same
vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any
time. If the Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed
confirmed and will take office.
The Judicial Qualifications Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution
to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged misconduct by a justice or judge.
Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by
the investigative panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further
proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the constitution authorizes the House of
Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may
request, and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the
commission's possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a justice or judge. This proposed revision
requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives
but provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of
Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit of an impeachment of a justice or judge.
This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications
Commission to conform to a prior constitutional change.
This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief
judges of a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive
conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of the constitution.

the membership of each house of the legislature. The court may readopt the repealed rule only in

been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, the rule may not be

Critter chatter

They are picky pets


Linda
Graves
Sumter
DART


(-I


iving with a pet that
has a picky palette
can be very frustrat-
ing. Take it from me, I
know firsthand.
Rascal, my 15 year old
terrier mix is a picky eater
The problem, at least for
Rascal, is that since pup-
pyhood, she finds what is
going on in the outside
world more interesting
than what is in her food
bowl. Twice a day at each
meal time for 15 year now, I
must find creative ways to
keep her interested in her


food.
Oh, I have tried every-
thing, from different types
of kibble to can dog food,
even human food. The
crazy things I have to do to
keep her interest aimed in
her food bowl may change
week to week, sometimes
day to day Sometimes if I
dance around with her
bowl of food, she may get
excited and eat. Some-
times not.
One day she may like her
food, and the next day turn
her nose up at the same
food. So I have to mix a dif-
ferent flavor of canned
food each day in with her
kibble. Which flavor will
she like today? I am never
sure.
Now my other dogs eat
with no trouble at all, and
finish their food in no time
at all. Not Rascal She


picks one kibble at a time,
chews it, and then looks
around to see if there is
anything interesting hap-
pening. So I have to make
sure there is nothing
around to distract her.
Needless to say, Rascal's
mealtime can last awhile.
During this time, my other
dogs are kept separate
from her. This has been
going on for 15 years!!!!
My friend Judy has a
picky eater too. 4 year old
Gidget has a change of
taste almost daily What
was delicious to eat that
morning, she will turn her
nose up to that evening.
And so, just as I have dif-
ferent flavors of canned
food to flavor the kibble in
my house, so does Judy
have a wide selection of
flavors for Gidget
Could this be karma for
me? I seem to remember
as a youngster that I was a
picky eater too.
My Mom and Dad would
not let me leave the table
until I finished my meal,
and sometimes I was at the
dinner table for what


seemed like hours. Now I what we do for our picky crazy! But just as my Mom
can understand their frus- pets. They love us, and we and Dad made sure I was
traction. love them, but boy- some properly fed, so I do that
Picky, picky, picky......Oh of them could drive us abit for my picky eater

Raiders prepare for homecoming


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

South Sumter High head
football coach Inman Sher-
man was not thrilled with
his defense.
Oh sure, the Raiders
beat Class 4A-District 4 foe
Mount Dora High 34-12 Fri-
day at home.
However, the Raiders
gave up too many points
Friday and that does not
make for a happy head
coach.
"Defensively, we played
lazy," said Sherman. "We
gave up two big plays that
our next opponent (Dun-
nellon) will see and try to
take advantage of"
Mount Dora rolled up
205 yards passing but ran
for just 45 yards.
The Raiders Defensive
Player of the Week was a
relatively easy choice.
'J.R. Ceballos had one
solo tackle, five assists and
zero loafing plays," said
Sherman.
News flash: Sherman
hates laziness.
Also on defense, Zay
Story had five solos and
two assists. Devyn Jessmer


had four solos and three
assists. Brandon Anderson
had three solos and four
assists. Brandon Curtis had
three solos and five assists.
Free safety Kiki Neal
had four assists on tackles.
The Offensive Player of
the Week was an unusual
choice.
"Elijah English made
some key blocks and great
effort," said the head
coach.
Quarterback Clay Sim-
mons did most of his dam-
age as a runner He had 12
carries for 95 yards and a
touchdown.
Neal, Davarreus Gibson,
Anderson Faulk and Ta-
fario McKrachon all ran
for a score.
South Sumter owned the
ground against Mount
Dora, gaining 330 yards
rushing.
The Raiders only had 43
yards passing as Simmons
completed four of 11 pass
attempts.
South Sumter is now 4-0
and 1-0 in Class 4A-District
4.
South Sumter High
should face some speed for
the Homecoming Game
7:30 p.m. Friday night.


BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County Times
Team effort? When it comes to the South Sumter Raiders, team effort is what they're pushing literally.
The Raiders gained in a push to get South Sumter ball carrier Max McLain some extra yardage before
being taken down by Mt. Dora in last Friday's game. Raiders and Hurricanes continued to join the push as
the play moved up the field toward the Raider's goal line. The Raiders were looking to gain and the 'Canes
to stop them. South Sumter managed to gain about 10 yards in the rush of action, moving McLain along.


Wildwood tops Crescent City 18-14


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

There is reason for
rejoicing this week at
Wildwood High School.
Wildwood High's
football team beat Cres-
cent City 18-14 Friday in
a district contest.
Fortunately, the Wild-
cats were creative in
their play and way of
winning.
Wildwood's Anthony
Wong came up with
touchdowns on both of-
fense and defense.
Wong picked off an
interception and re-
turned it 15 yards for
the score.
He also ran five yards
for the TD.
Wildcat kicker
Richard Dyal also
booted field goals of 37
and 25 yards to nail


Terrence Green


down to the victory
Wildwood is now 1-3
and hoping the triumph
over Crescent City
means the season is
turning around for the
Sumter County team.
The Wildcats coach
had plenty to be grate-
ful for in that triumph.
"The offense had a
strong game from the
offensive line," said
Wildwood High head
football coach Matt
LaBranche. "The de-
fense only allowed four
first downs."
Now the Wildcats
hope for a two-game
winning streak.
This Friday, they face
Williston High School
there at 7:30 p.m. The
Red Devils are coming
off a 26-0 loss to New-
berry
There's no reason for
Wildwood to get over-
confident here.


"They have a great
coach in coach (Jamie)
Baker," said
LaBranche. "I expect
them to have athletes
and be very physical."
Hopefully, Wildwood
can prove to be just as
athletic and more phys-
ical as well as tri-
umphant this Friday in
Williston.
After all, two victo-
ries and three defeats
would absolutely be
such an improvement
and it makes it easier
for the Wildcats to for-
get the first three games
of the season.
Sometimes, a mem-
ory failure is truly a
genuinely wonderful
thing and something to
be treasured forever
Having delightful
memories of the 2012
season would be great
too.

Someone has some suggestions to

avoid speculation and to stick with just
the facts, Lamb.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An

information finally emerges, allowing
you to make that important personal
decision. You can now move your
focus to an upcoming professional

job changes. But some of them could
open new opportunities for the Moon
Child's talents to shine to your best
advantage.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) An
apparently solid-gold opportunity
beckons the Lion. But check to see if
all that dazzle isn't just a sprinkling

making a commitment.

22) A close friend could offer advice
on how to handle a difficult family
matter. But in the end, the decision has
to be made based on what is best for

AUTOMOTIVE
ANSWERS
Automotive Q & A
by Tom Formanek
President
Q: What safety features can I find
on new Hyundais?

A: Many new Hyundais have
Active Front Head Restraints and
Electronic Stability Control as part
of the standard equipment ESC
is Accident Avoidance Technology
that the government has found could
save 10,000 lives per year!
Many new Hyundais have been
awarded a ***** 5 Star Safety
Rating from the NHTSA.

Q: How does Hyundai meet the
needs of our environmentally
conscientious customers?

A: Today's customers are more
conscientious of our delicate
environment. They would like our
children's future and our planet to
be a cleaner and safer world. The
Hyundai Sonata Hybrid fits those
needs perfectly. The Sonata Hybrid
not only gets excellent gas mileage,
it is one of the safest vehicles on
the road. Our 2012 Hybrid also has
a lifetime warranty on the batteries.
That alone meets dependability,
and a lower carbon footprint in our
landfills and our future!
