I only went to the meeting to cover this future event that was being planned. I went to find out what it was all about and to give this Relay for Life group some promotion. Unfortunately, or so I thought at the time, the crowd was small and the volunteers were few. I also knew most of the people sitting on the committee and leading the meeting. I took notes furiously, I was busy getting it all right. Then, asking for volunteers, I heard one of the committee members call my name. Brenda, how about it? Uh.uher, uh, I stammered, wondering furiously how I could say no politely. After all, I had way too many things on my plate already, didnt I? Uh .uher, uh, again. She continued to stare at me, along with the others in the room. Um sure. I can do um something. I heard the words but I wasnt sure whose voice that was. It didnt matter, I was thankful that someone volunteered. Then I realized too late, it was me I had agreed to help. I liked the fact that 55-percent of the money raised would go to research. That was back in 2002 and I had already lost my mother and one of my grandfathers to the disease. Cancer has continued to wage a battle with my family I have lost a third close relative. But, thanks to the research thats been done, I have another family member who has undergone some amazing treatments. Oh, the medical things they are doing with the funds raised through Relay for Life and other organizations! And thats just the research. Relay for Life provides funding for things like free prosthesis and wigs, support contact and a lodge where patients and their caregivers can stay for free, as they undergo treatment. Its a chance for folks to come together and create their own team of friends, co-workers, family, whoever. During the months prior to the actual overnight, theyre finding creative ways to raise money emails to friends, bake and yard sales, selling purple stuff, etc. Not only did I get on board that evening, I took on the role of entertainment chair. That meant finding 18 hours of solid entertainment for a crowd of about 200 during an event I knew nothing about. But trust me, by the end of the several months it took to build the final Relay for Life overnight event, we knew what we were doing and we loved it! Theyre all wonderful, fun and worthy, but that first one was amazing to me. The attitudes, the manners, the generosity from the committee members and entertainers willing to donate their time, right down to the dozens of teens who camped out and took on support and participation roles. We even had a crew of four committed to take their turn at the microphone each for so many hours, to keep things moving along. It was like a giant hug fest. Not that everyone was really hugging, but that was definitely the attitude that pervaded everything everybody was nice and thoughtful and we were fighting cancer together. As a matter of fact, I dont think I ever heard an unkind word that entire season, from anyone involved and that includes the overnight. I was impressed. That first year, we had the South Sumter High School Jazz band and a couple who did some great live, Irish-themed music. We stuffed our faces with frozen pies in a pie eating contest and made an absolute mess of ourselves, laughing all the way. We shared our talent in a competition and we danced the Chicken Dance again and again and yes, again. That very first time we were gearing up for the Chicken Dance, a friend of mine was sitting with the crowd on lawn chairs in front of the stage. She told me later that she had felt sorry for me, knowing what would happen next. She said she looked at her husband and said, Honey, nobody is going to get up and do this chicken dance thing with Brenda, so well need to help her. Well need to get up and do it. She continued, We got up and started dancing and I looked around and 200 people were dancing the Chicken Dance. Yes, they were all doing the Chicken Dance and they were all earning spirit tokens and they were all laughing and having a great time. The spirit tokens were a great bribe coveted enough to drive participants to almost anything. The team with the most tokens, after the overnight event, is declared the spirit winner and gets possession of the relay trophy for the next year. I remember Wildwood students camping out next door to my tent as I lay on a cot outside finally a little before or a little after 4 a.m. I was trying to make sure the entertainment was still on and passing out tokens on the track. Silly me, I should have found someone else to dole out the tokens and headed for bed. I thought, I wont go inside and go to sleep, but let me just lay here on the cot and close my eyes for a few minutes. The cool morning air felt good. Just as I happened to doze off with the token bucket tucked in the curve of my arm (I think I was snoring) I jerked awake startled by something. It was a couple of the teens from the high school camp, next door. But one of the teens was leaned over, just a few inches away from my face you know, that good scare position, when someone is fast asleep. When he was close enough, he began toGrace notes Thanks for supportThe last month has been a very busy and successful time for the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. We owe it to our great show of community support, from the local clubs, businesses and volunteers who supported four of our largest fundraising events in March and April. Our annual Paper Shredding event (sponsored by the Rainbow Family & Friends Club, Buffalo Ridge Animal Hospital and Hills Shred Express), FunTime Follies (sponsored by show producers Kim and Jim Krum and their talented performers) and the Above Par For Animals Golf Ball Drop (sponsored by Remax Premier Realty of The Villages/Ocala, George Nahas Chevrolet, Nathan Thomas State Farm Insurance, Columbia ParCar) and the Villages Charter Middle School Builders Club (sponsored by the Kiwanis and HighFive Frozen Yogurt) pet supply drive have raised donations to help our non-profit continue with our much needed community programs as the challenges of summertime in Florida fast approach. Spay/Neuter funding and pet food assistance are only made possible from donations from our community. As April is also Volunteer Appreciation Month we would like to acknowledge the tremendous kindness shown by our HS/SPCA volunteers for their compassion, teamwork and gifts of kindness to allow the many helpless animals we in turn help find happier lives. Without our volunteers and contributions from our community we cannot do the necessary work we do to better the lives of both animals and their people in Sumter County. Stay tuned to upcoming events we have planned and please dont forget that the need continues during our difficult summer months. Donations will be gratefully accepted at our local drop off sites including at our shelter at 994 CR 529A in Lake Pan or can be mailed to us at The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc., PO Box 67, Lake Panasoffkee, FL 33538 or via our website at hsspca.org. We are fur-ever thankful and wish you a doggone great summer!

Watch for the reminder early next year to get your plant ready for the show. Master Gardeners Letters to the editor Why Relay for Life? (Editors note: Nancy Kennedy is taking a break this week. This is a rewrite of a column from April 2006.)Just get Jesus rightHeres a great idea: Lets stop fighting. All of us who believe in Jesus, lets all stop nit-picking the peripherals and incidentals of our faith. After all, we are all one, right? I got this great idea even before going to see a local Pentecostal preacher for a story I was working on about Pentecostalism. Even though I had reams of history and background information, I wanted to talk to a real Pentecostal a Holy Ghost preacher. As we sat and talked about Pentecostalism, the preachers eyes danced. He obviously loved his faith; he loved God and loved being filled with the Holy Ghost and all the manifestations that brings: speaking in tongues, being slain in the Spirit, and believing in and witnessing miracle healings. He told me that at age 9 he attended a tent meeting in Knoxville, Tenn.. He still remembered the sawdust on the floor and lying on the ground, tears streaming down his face, sorry for the wrong he had done, and then receiving the Spirit of God. My daddy picked me up and took me home, he told me. I was still speaking in tongues when my mama put my pajamas on me and put me to bed. He also said that Pentecostalism has been around a long, long time; that it didnt begin in 1906 as most people think, but in 33 A.D. on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit blew into the room where the disciples were gathered, sounding like a violent wind. Tongues of fire fell that day, and the disciples were filled with the Spirit. When the power of God came, the preacher said, they began speaking in strange tongues. Pentecostals believe that still happens today. I asked him why Presbyterians dont speak in tongues (although some might, I suppose). He said they could if they wanted to. The promise is for everyone who asks for it, he said. I didnt tell him that I asked for it before, but I never got it. Years ago, a Pentecostal neighbor decided that I needed to speak in tongues and tried teaching me. But as hard as she tried and I tried, it didnt work. Its like algebra I could never get that either. Eventually, I told my neighbor that I was content to not speak in tongues and that I hoped she could be content with not trying anymore to make me do it. After that, I think she felt sorry for me, the poor, un-tongued, heathen shlub. She seemed to think Pentecostalism was the only ticket in town. She probably doubted my salvation. Ha! Some people still doubt if Im truly saved. Although I have nothing against Pentecostalism, some people do. Some argue vehemently that speaking in tongues ceased when the Bible was completed and that being slain in the Spirit (falling on the ground in a rapturous state) is from the devil, not the Lord. Not all, but some Pentecostals think non-Pentecostals are not real believers or maybe were not as complete. So weve got the haves and the have-nots pitted against each other, each thinking the other guys wrong. Thats not even throwing the way different groups baptize into the mix. When sprinklers and dunkers get going at each other, youve got all-out combat. I guess all Im trying to say is that not all believers in Jesus worship in the same manner, but we all worship the same Jesus. There is one body and one Spirit, wrote the apostle Paul to the Ephesians, just as (we) were called to one hope one Lord, one faith, one baptism: one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all (Ephesians 4:4-6). One day God will gather all of his people around him Pentecostals and Presbyterians, charismatics and Calvinists, too. I think hell tell us all to sit still, and then hell say that we all got a whole lot of things wrong and that we fought over things not worth fighting about, but because we got Jesus right, thats all that counts. Maybe well all shout and dance and the Baptists and Presbyterians will speak in tongues while the Pentecostals sit on their hands and nod, or maybe well all eat strawberry rhubarb pie or drink martinis. Either way, because we got Jesus right, we will have stopped our fighting and our Father will be pleased. But why wait until then?

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL24, 2014, PAGEA5 strum on his guitar and sing Oh token laaaaaa.deee, to the sound of an old folk song. I think it was the old Willie Nelson song Playmate about sliding down the rain barrel and dollies. I jerked up, humiliated that I had been caught sleeping on the job and that someone had to come find me to give out tokens. My sister and teammate, was inside the tent, all snuggled in her blanket. In between naps, she snickered as the teens strummed by her tent window and strolled on through the relay camp. Their song was from their heart, their fondest desire only for the token lady to climb off the cot and get back to the track. She thought their song was cute, but she snickered because she knew I was holding my hips as I hobbled and hitched my way in their wake. That year, it turned out SECO was the team to beat, though the teens gave them a run for the money. The team members were always after those tokens and by Saturday morning, I feared we might have to call an ambulance. Many of us stayed up all night (though please know, you do not have to!) Most of the SECO crew stayed up or had very little sleep and we started the morning with Jazzercise. Remember, every person that participated in anything, got a spirit token. SECO members wanted those tokens. So after being up most of the night, there they were, in formation, Jazzercising along. It was a full hour of Jazzercise, led by local resident Patty Jordan. I knew if I ever put Jazzercising on the agenda again, it would certainly be a shorter round. Some of them looked as if they would pass out, but they kept going. And yes, they did get trophy that year. But, some of them also looked more energetic than some of the teens But they were all smiling. Everybody was smiling. Tired as I was, we had us a party and its been that way ever since. If you still arent sure what Relay for Life is all about and would like to find out, come to the party! Youre invited! If you come on Friday evening to check out the overnight, you have no obligation, you can come look around and see whats happening. There are contests and games, challenges and plenty of things to spend money on each team is creative in finding things they can sell or do at the event. But you dont have to spend a dime. Just bring a lawn chair, friends and or family, or come alone and see whats going on. See if its something you think you might want to try next year. And even if you dont want to form a team, you can come out and support the battle against cancer. Buy a snack, find a bauble, check out the entertainment but get ready to relay! RELAY continued from Page 4 Kids, get your fishing poles ready and get baited up, its time for No Child Left Indoors, hosted by local members of Quail Forever and its free, free, free! If youre a youngster between 5 and 17 years old and you take part in the fun this Saturday, chances are pretty good youll see or experience something youve never seen or experienced before therell be a fishing tournament in the big ponds, archery, fish hatchery tours (where tanks of giant bass swim), B.B. gun shooting, a Swamp Brothers Show with live exotic animals and Smokey the Bear. Ever seen a bird dog demonstration? The bird dog demonstration will give youths a chance to see pointers in action, as they direct the hunters. How about a swamp buggy or a helicopter up close and personal? Theres plenty more and lunch is included, all thanks to the Florida Sportsman Quail Forever group and a collection of supporting businesses and organizations. Therell be some free prizes and the grand prize of a two-person bass boat. That prize includes the trolling motor, battery and battery box, anchor, rope, paddles and a youth and adult life vest. Youth must be present to the win the boat. The event is at the FWC Richloam Fish Hatchery in south Sumter County.five miles south of S.R. 50 at 3583 C.R. 788 of S.R. 471. Its a family fun day at the hatchery ponds with the chapter 3200 Quail Forever group coordinating. They hope to pass down a love for the outdoors to younger generations. Ive been hunting for as long as I can remember and now more people are looking for conservation to come back, said Gary Marriage, who is the chapter president and event coordinator. Their intent in forming the chapter was to impact the habitat, youths and education in the Central Florida area, he said. The chapters primary goal is to get more youths involved in the outdoors by putting on outdoor events, teaching sportsmanship. Showing them what its like to put the video games down, get outside, and carry on our outdoor tradition. Theres a long list of organizations and businesses that support the effort, including but not limited to Dicks Sporting Goods and Richloam Sportsman Association, the Sumter County Farmers Market and Anglers Tackle Shack. The fun starts at 8:30 a.m. and lasts until 3 p.m. with lunch served at 11:30 a.m. Everyone needs to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets to sit on and youth eligible to participate need to bring their own fishing poles. Were setting a record for this event, Marriage said, explaining that their contact at QF told them none of the chapters in the state had ever put together an event of this caliber, He said it may even be the largest in the nation. They expect to serve at least 500 youth, who will also be with other family members and friends. Anyone interested in attending for fun or to help, can contact Marriage at 352-303-7783.

William Young graduated from South Sumter High in 2006 and entered the Marine Corps as an infantryman, graduating from Grunt University. His first deployment was a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) as a saw gunner aboard ship. The second deployment was to Afghanistan as a designated marksman/squad leader with his unit 1st Bn 5th Marine. His unit was part of Operation Strike of the Sword (Operation Khanjar). It was the largest Marine offensive airlift since the Vietnam War and the largest Marine ground offensive since the Battle of Fallujah in 2004. Cpl. Young was deployed to Afghanistan two more times and received the Combat Action Ribbon, Meritorious Mast (7) and Good Conduct (2). William will not be able to re-enlist in the Marine Corps after 8 years due to budget cuts in the military. William, his wife Desiree, daughter Sarah and son David welcomed Kaileyann Marie Young into the world on July 9, 2013. During the pregnancy it was known Kaileyann had serious heart complications, chromosome abnormalities and other possible issues after her birth, if she survived, so the family decided to leave the pregnancy in Gods hands. Kaileyann is such a fighter, she has overcome many obstacles so far and after birth the family discovered she was blind and had 3 fused disks. She had her first heart surgery before two weeks of age. Kaileyanns next open heart surgery will be around her first birthday. The heart surgery and Williams release from the Marine Corps will happen at approximately the same time. The family will have to move off base and find housing close to North Carolina Childrens Hospital in Chapel Hill, which has taken care of Kaileyann since birth. William is the son of Kathy Young, former Sumter County Housing Manager and brother of Anthony Young, former Sumter County Animal Control Officer.

PAGEA8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL24, 2014 FROM THE GROUND UP Question:I found some small insects that look like grasshoppers with yellow and orange stripes; what is it?Answer:Eastern lubber grasshopper nymphs can have red, yellow or orange stripes in their early stages and you may seem them clustered together; the picture above was taken in the UF/IFAS Sumter County Master Gardener Demonstration Garden this week. And lubbers are drawn to lily leaves the way I am drawn to chocolate! There are also different color phases of the adults so you may see some yellow and some black. Keeping areas mowed frequently can help reduce the attractiveness of your landscape to this insect. When they are very young and cluster together, you can put them in a bucket of soapy water for control. As they mature, they become solitary and control of the adults is difficult. They bright colors of the adult are a signal to birds and other predators that they are toxic. Before recommending a pesticide, we need to ask you a few questions; so please call us. Well be glad to assist you.Question:I want to plant the amaryllis that was given to me last Christmas. Can you give me instructions?Answer:First, the bad news: now is not the time to plant them. Amaryllis should be planted between September and February (ideally October or November). Second, the really good news: Amaryllis can be kept in a pot for 2 or more years and do just fine. So wait until this fall to plant them. Choose a location with part sun that is well drained; amaryllis can experience problems if planted in too much shade. The plant you were given during the holidays was forced to bloom; once planted in your landscape it will bloom in the spring.Question:I dug up my amaryllis last year and moved them to another area. But they have not started blooming this spring. Answer:Several things could have happened. Did you dig them up before the leaves turned yellow and died back? Did you fertilize with a lot of nitrogen? Did you plant them in too much shade? Did you plant them too deeply? For information on amaryllis in Florida see http://gardeningsolutions.ifas.ufl.edu/giam/plant s_and_grasses/flowering_plants/amaryllis.html Tips from Ask the Master Gardener: When purchasing amaryllis, remember that the bigger the bulb the bigger the bloom. Also, do not purchase ones with red areas on the leaves. Amaryllis leaves can get red spots when damaged but it could be red blotch, which is a fungus that will infect the bulbs. To submit questions to Ask the Master Gardener please call 352-793-2728, Ext. 229 or email us at plantclinic@aol.com Photos courtesy of UF/IFAS Sumter County Master Gardeners and John Capinera, University of Florida Department of Entomology.

You do not want to return home to find mildew or moisture problem, the exterior seems more rundown or even worse reports of vandalism or burglary! Some people send part of the year in Florida and part of the year in their second home in another area of the country. Lets look at some weekly tips in Closing Your Home you can use to minimize the possibility that you may return to our home and find a serious problem. Thr ee w eek s prior to leav ing: Make an appointment to have air conditioning system serviced (this should be done once a year). Have air conditioning service professional calibrate humidistat. Call Telephone Company to temporarily suspend service during your absence. Review homeowners insurance policy and update, if necessary. Determine what method(s) you will use to control relative humidity inside your home and/or control fungal growth. Seek a trusted friend or relative to check on your home or act in your behalf. Arrange for landscaping maintenance. Arrange to close shutters and/or prepare home in the event of a hurricane threat. Tw o w eek s prior to leaving: Purchase timers for lamps, radio or other appliances. Arrange to forward mail. Arrange for cancellation of newspapers, magazines. Run air conditioning on humidistat settings to test reliability. It should run at least two hours out of every 24 hours. Purchase desiccants, if needed. Begin cleaning with fungicidal products to remove existing fungal spores. O ne w eek prior to leaving: Clean refrigerator and freezer. Eat food on hand. Check operation of dehumidifier, if you choose to use one. Place in central location. Secure continuous drain. Vacuum upholstered furnishings to get rid of mold spores. Remove interior plants and exterior plants in pots and containers. Eat food in the food cabinets or plan to give away or discard. Do not keep herbs such as parsley, oregano, basil, etc. You may, however, keep spices such as cinnamon, curry, nutmeg, etc. and all canned products. O n the day of depar tur e: Empty refrigerator and freezer; disconnect and leave door slightly ajar. Run 1 dozen ice cubes and 2 or 3 tablespoons baking soda in the garbage disposal to clean blades. Also be sure to empty dishwasher, set timers on lights, drain and disconnect water heater, strip bedding, cover drains with stopper and duct tape and cover and seal toilets. If using chemical mildew inhibitors, cover air passages with 2 ml thick plastic. Dont forget to set burglar alarm, check air conditioning for accurate settings, set off insect bombs or foggers, if desired and most importantly Lock doors and secure exterior.For more information on how to close your home contact your local UF/IFAS Extension Service or email Martha Maddox at mmaddox@ufl.edu or call 352793-2728 ext. 227 (DarLinda) and ask for EDIS Publication How to Close Your Home FCS3154.

Martha Maddox UF/IFAS Extension The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the availability of approximately $66 million in Specialty Crop Block Grants to state departments of agriculture for projects that help support specialty crop growers, including locally grown fruits and vegetables, through research, programs to increase demand, and more. The historic support provided by the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Farm Bill), will strengthen rural American communities by supporting local and regional markets and improving access to fresh, healthy, and nutritious high quality products for millions of Americans. The Specialty Crop Block Grant Program, administered by the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), is designed to enhance the markets for specialty crops like fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, horticulture and nursery crops, including floriculture. "Specialty crop block grants help sustain the livelihoods of American farmers while strengthening the rural economy" said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. "These grants contribute to food safety improvements, increased access to healthy food, and new research to help growers increase profitability and sustainability." As directed by the Farm Bill, the block grants are now allocated to U.S. States and territories based on a formula that takes into consideration both specialty crop acreage and production value. Nearly all states are seeing an increase in funds. AMS encourages applicants to develop projects that enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops, sustain the livelihood of American farmers, and strengthen rural economies by: Increasing nutritional knowledge and specialty crop consumption among children and adults, Improving efficiency within the distribution system, Promoting the development of good agricultural, handling and manufacturing practices while encouraging audit cost-sharing for small farmers, packers, and processors, Supporting research through standard and green initiatives, Enhancing food safety, Developing new/improved seed varieties and specialty crops, Controlling pests and diseases, Creating organic and sustainable production practices, Establishing local and regional fresh food systems, Expanding access to specialty crops in underserved communities, Developing school and community gardens and farm-to-school programs, Enhancing the competitiveness of specialty crop farmers, including Native American and disadvantaged farmers. Interested applicants should apply directly to their state department of agriculture. Several states have already published their requests for proposals, and the list of FY 2014 State Requests for Proposals is available on the AMS website. For more information visit the AMS Specialty Crop Block Grant Program webpage or contact Trista Etzig via phone at (202) 6904942 or by e-mail: trista.etzig@ams.usda.gov.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, APRIL24, 2014, PAGEA11 FAMILY FEATURES Whether youre preparing a quick break fast for the family, feeding a crowd at dinner or looking for a light lunch for yourself, the key to a delicious, nutritious homemade meal is just minutes away thanks to the canned foods in your pantry. Canned fruits and vegetables are a must in my pantry. They are picked and canned at the peak of ripeness, hours after theyre harvested, locking in their flavor, freshness and nutrition, says Kelsey Nixon, host of Kelseys Essentials on Cooking Channel and Food Network. Having canned fruits and vegetables on hand means a healthy snack, meal or side dish is achievable anytime. In addition to nutrient-rich staples like tomatoes, corn and beans, Nixon recommends stocking up on ingredients such as canned olives, tuna, artichokes, pumpkin and chiles. These canned foods can elevate the flavors of a dish and breathe new life into some of your favorite recipes. Here are some more great tips and delicious recipes from Nixon: Keeping a well-stocked pantry, or Cantry, will help you avoid unnecessary trips to the grocery store after a long day. Tomato-based canned ingredients, like diced tomatoes and tomato sauce, are the most versatile when it comes to making a wide variety of recipes like chili, salsa, marinara sauce, soups or casseroles. Canned fruits add an unexpected twist to savory dishes, and can transform recipes in exciting ways. Just add canned peaches to homemade barbecue sauce or canned pine apple to curries and stir-fry recipes for a healthy and flavorful upgrade.

Chicken Pozole Artichoke & Bean Salad with Tuna Peaches and Cream Cheesecake Bars Crust-less Quiche Slow Cooker Ragu Coexisting Safely With BearsIn light of the recent black bear attack in Orlando where a woman thankfully survived, it is important to understand why these conflicts between humans and bears occur. At one time black bears numbering an estimated 12,000, inhabited all of Florida including many of the Florida Keys. Nearly disappearing in the 1970s, the black bear was put on the endangered list. But with a habitat that has become isolated and sporadic, their population has dropped again to a current estimate of 3,000 in the state. The six protected areas in the state that the major population of bears can be found in are: Ocala National Forest, Apalachicola National Forest, Big Cypress National Preserve, Osceola National Forest, Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. and Everglades National Park. As our human population grows here in Florida, wildlife habitat is lost to development at 20 acres every hour in our state. The loss of wildlife habitat greatly impacts all of Floridas wildlife including the black bear. An approximated 100 plus bears are killed on the roadways each year by motorists. In 2013 the number of bears killed on roadways jumped to over 200. Drive slowly during dusk and dawn especially where bear signs are posted, and watch out for all wildlife. To coexist safely with our wild neighbors, we must be aware of our surroundings and take some precautions. Springtime is when bears are coming out of their dens, hungry and in search of food. Be aware that hungry bears will be attracted to trash, pet food, and even bird seed. If food is not easily available in your area, the bear will move on. Female bears give birth in January, and are now beginning to roam with their cubs. The older the cubs become, the further they will roam. If mother bears perceive danger, they will aggressively defend their cubs. Never assume a lone bear is without cubs. The cubs may be hidden nearby. Stay clear of mother bears and their babies! While generally not aggressive, black bears may become defensive by the actions of your dog. Walk dogs on leash and keep them close while staying aware of your surroundings. If you do accidently come in contact with a bear, some expert suggestions are: dont make eye contact, dont play dead, dont run, but instead start backing away without turning your back on the bear. As development continues to expand closer and closer to bear habitat, we may very well experience more bear sightings. Orlando is a perfect example. Urban sprawl has caused so much of the wildlife habitat loss that there seems to be sightings of bears in the news just about every week in the city. Then tragically, not only are people in danger, but the bears are in danger too. As we have seen, one bear attack will have Fl. Wish and Wildlife out killing several bears, even if they had no involvement with an attack. Be cautious. Stay aware of your surroundings. Do not attract bears with food sources. By keeping bear incidents to a minimum, we can coexist safely with our wild neighbors. Critter chatter Linda Graves Florida DART

Even the threat of rain didnt keep the families away from the Bushnell park, as they lined up for the egg hunt and other fun activities. The children were separated into ages and those with the top number of eggs even earned Easter baskets, filled with goodies. Bushnell resident Lynn Cleavenger was one of the dozens of folks out to enjoy the morning with her family. Shes shown here with her grandsons Wyatt and Gabriel Anderson. Hannah Hooten shows off her collection of candy, from the Easter egg hunt, after emptying the eggs and returning them to the park for future use. Judy Bradley holds a Silkie, as Destiny Rice stands next to her at the park. The Silkies were chickens brought along with pioneers, as they ventured into new lands and established their homes. Friends or strangers, a good Easter egg hunt and some sweet treats can draw people together. Joshlynn Myers (left) and Haleigh Watson were great pals on Saturday, as they compared notes and a look into each others Easter baskets for a view of all the goodies. Keep your egg on the spoon, no touching and move like the wind children are shown preparing to participate in the egg race, after they finished the egg hunt.

Mesiemore fans 13 as Raiders win 10-0 Marissa Mesiemore didnt plan to have the South Sumter High softball defense take the night off Tuesday. It just worked out that way, Mesiemore, a fireballing freshman pitcher, struck out 13 including seven in a row, and threw a no-hitter in a 10-0 fiveinning mercy rule victory over Ocala Trinity Catholic Tuesday in the Class 4A-District 6 game at the Villages High School. Not wishing to leave any loose ends, she also blasted her fourth home run of the season over the center field fence. It was a two-run shot and keyed a four-run third inning. The Raiders defense had only two fielding chances and handled them flawlessly. South Sumter upped its record to 15-7 and advanced to the district title game Thursday. Mesiemore is now 10-3 this year. I just wanted to go out and do my best, she said. We needed this win to get to the championship. We needed it to boost our confidence. It was one of my better games. It was good. The coaches and everyone was pretty happy about it. Trinity Catholic pitcher Lauren Witt was the losing pitcher. South Sumter batters reached on five hits, seven bases on balls and two hit by pitches. They also scored on an error, a steal of home and an illegal pitch. South Sumter had five hits including a Victoria Medina and doubles by Morgan Mobley and Desiree Reynolds. Im very, very proud of the way they came out here, said head coach Heather Kadur. They played together as a team. They came out here for one reason and that was to win. I couldnt be more proud of her (Mesiemore) as well as the entire team. She shut them down, said coach Marc Johnson. Villages 7, South Sumter 1 in District title game Thursday Mesiemore took the loss in this one. South Sumter (18-8) was to play Bradford Starke Wednesday for a regional quarterfinal. Starke beat South Sumter 3-2 last year to end the Raiders season. Results of that game were not available at press time. South Sumter had three hits. When we hit it was right at someone, said Johnson. They played their A game. We didnt play our A game. They met us on the right night. They played a great game. We had great at bats when there was no one on base. Marissa was trying to dig it out after every single pitch. She walked more batters than she has walked all year. It played in her head. Shes only a freshman. We complained to the umpires. They had the ground crew come out and fix it. She plays on some really big travel ball teams. We had two strikeouts but we hit the ball to where they were. Crescent City 17, Wildwood 4 Wednesday at Pierson The end of the line came for Wildwood as they lost in the Class 1A, District 8 game at Pierson. The game was postponed due to rain, Wildwood finished its season with a 1-17. Toni Zito was the losing pitcher. Katie Henderson was 2for-3. Jaecy Green had two RBIs. We played with low numbers, said Adam Cardona. We lost people due to grades. We lost two starters due to illness going into the district tournament. We are a young team. We return everybody next year.
