In an effort to make Sam Harris Memorial Park a cleaner and safer place for kids and families, city staff organized a community clean-up event in the hope of bringing the community together. Similar to the Lake Panasoffkee Improvement Association project, Webster needed a solution to recent vandalism and pollution problems that plague the park. A major contributor to the event was the First Baptist Church of Webster. A clean safe place for families to come and enjoy a day together brought involvement from the church, said Pastor Don Grant. Grant and his congregation worked diligently seeking donations from local businesses such as Webster Farm Supply and Hibernia Plant Nursery. The leadership and public spirit in the community is inspiring, said city employee Stephanie GarSee CLEAN, Page A5 Coleman goes solar While that intense, Florida summer sun is turning your parked car into an oven on wheels, it might just be bringing a smile to the faces of Coleman city officials. Its not that they like the heat any more than the rest of the populace, but they have the satisfaction of knowing they have a new solar energy plant thats turning glaring sunlight into energy and saving money for its citizens. Coleman officials are scheduled to officially present their recently expanded solar-powered public water system during a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m., Monday, June 16, at the city water plant on Anderson Road. The plant is a few hundred feet west of U.S. 301 on Colemans south side. Information on the event is available at city hall 748-1017. The new solar system might give Coleman a unique position in Floridas solar power history. It seems that this municipality of just under 700 residents the smallest of Sumter County cities might be the first city in Florida to have a solar-powered public water system. City officials are still checking into that, Mayor Milton Hill said. In an open field adjacent to the water plant, contractors have installed long rows of photovoltaic panels clustered photo electric cells on a fenced concrete pad. The panels are tilted at about 45-degrees off vertical and face south. They are placed for the best sun exposure. Using a $600,000 grant MARTINSTEELE Times Correspondent Get ready because Sumter students are headed back to classes early in August. Sumter District Schools have been designated, once again, as an Academically High-Performing School District by the State Board of Education. Based on 2013 school and district grades, 20132014 class size compliance and 2012-2013 financial audit reviews, Sumter joined 10 other districts who met all eligibility criteria for achieving this recognition. While there is always room for improvement, great effort is a prerequisite to great results, said School Supt. Rick Shirley. Congratulations to the teachers, students, and staff for a job well done and another successful year. Due to this designation, Sumter District has the option to move forward with an earlier school start date of Aug. 7, rather than the previously announced date of Aug. 18. The Academically High-Performing designation allows the district to waive a state law that reBRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesThe Lincoln Street Head Start had an end-of-the-year treat, just before school let out for the summer.

These children, between toddling and grade school, are doing plenty of hands-on learning at the Bushnell preschool center on Lincoln Street. Their school year has been filled with life curriculum and hands-on experiences. The latest in their collection of touch, feel and see learning came a collection of animals on campus last month. There was a pig, a goose, a duck, a goat, chicken, canines from the sheriffs office and two miniature horses.

imals. In recent months, the children did a series on transportation and had the hands-on experience with a medical helicopter watching it land and take-off, touching the chopper and seeing what was inside, as well as speaking to the flight and medical crew. The hands-on experiences bring reality into the classroom, Gibbons said, noting the children can read about it and then actually experience it in real life. As for the children and families, They do love it, she said, explaining that parents are excited to see that the kids are really learning. We want everybody to know what were really doing in Head Start, and of what they are accomplishing. The children had a chance to pet the animals and ask questions. Some of them even had a little cheek-to-cheek time with some of the animals, like Bailey the bloodhound. Local resident and Sumter Equestrian owner Colleen Martin brought in the miniature horses Lucky and Satin, as well as her pet goat Lena. Parent Tara Dearman brought in a chicken and Chad Lowe brought in the other farm animals. The Bushnell Head Start had 35 students in the 20132014 class.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. A familys fishing outing last week at the Iron Bridge in south Sumter County ended up in the arrest of a convicted murderer after he reportedly harassed a family. The incident happened about 2:58 p.m. on Tuesday, June 3, at the bridge when the victim and her three children and her younger brother were confronted by Sheldrick McNeal, 48, Bushnell, according to a Sumter County Sheriffs Office report. McNeal was convicted of second-degree murder in 1993 for the shooting death of Rufus M. Livingston, 73, of Croom-aCoochee. McNeal, who was released from prison in 1999, approached the group and tried to give the victims 16-year-old brother and her 5-yearold daughter beer and cigarettes, according to the report. He then pulled out money from his pants and asked the victim if she wanted to make a couple dollars. McNeal then reportedly walked over to the victims belongings on the bank of the river and began going through them. The sheriffs office was called when he refused to leave the area and continued to harass the family, the report states. As the victim attempted to pack up her belongs and get her family into their vehicle, McNeal again approached, putting a beer in the back of her vehicle, touching the victims buttocks and thigh area while she was putting her infant child in a car seat. McNeal reportedly tried to prevent the victim from getting into the vehicle and touched the arm of her young daughter and grabbed the arm of her son. As the family got inside the vehicle, deputies arrived and arrested McNeal. He was charged with four counts of battery, two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and false imprisonment. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $18,000. McNeal was convicted in 1993 of breaking into Livingstons mobile home. He reportedly shot Livingston once in the chest with a shotgun and then fled from the home. McNeal was also charged with battery in 2010 when he reportedly grabbed a sheriffs deputy by the shoulder as he was investigating a disturbance. McNeal had to be stunned several times by a Taser before he could be restrained, according to reports. Because of his previous convictions, the recent misdemeanor charges of battery were increased to felony charges. Convicted murderer harasses family Sheldrick McNeal BOBREICHMAN Editor Couple arrested for public sex A Village resident and a younger man were arrested last week for allegedly having public sex at an entertainment pavilion in The Villages. David Alan Bobilya, 49, Summerfield and Margaret Ann Klemm, 68, were both arrested on Monday, June 2, for indecent exposure and disorderly conduct. They were released from the Sumter County Detention Center after posting $1,500 bail each. Officers received a complaint at 10:37 p.m. about two people having sexual intercourse in public at the square at Lake Sumter Landing. When deputies arrived, they observed the couple still having intercourse, according to the report. Klemms pants were removed and Bobilya had his blue jeans and underwear down around his ankles. The couple was ordered to put their clothes back on and then they both were arrested. Sheriffs spokesman Bobby Caruthers said the couple is believed to have been intoxicated at the time. Most of the crowd at the entertainment venue had left the area earlier that evening but there were still some people around who witnessed the incident. Klemm had been recently arrested in Sumter County for driving under the influence.

The benefits to an early start date are many and include allowing two, full 90day semesters with the first semester exam schedule to occur before the winter break. It also allows high school dual enrollment students to be on a more similar schedule with Lake-Sumter State College. Additionally, students will receive more instructional time before state exams. I truly believe this will be better academically for kids, schools, and staff, said Superintendent, Rick Shirley. Sumter District students will return to school on Thursday, Aug. 7. Teachers will return on Friday, Aug. 1. Please visit the district website at www.sumter.k12.fl.us for more information on school start times, and other start of school information.

PAGEA4SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE12, 2014 Support for veterans medical benefitsAs I sit here with my father watching the evening news, we are saddened by the attitudes being expressed towards the Veterans Administration medical services. My father is an 89-year-old, WWII veteran who has consistently received exceptional medical care through his Veterans Administration benefits. James Haley VA hospital in Tampa has provided excellent medical care for my father since the 1970s. My father continues to receive wonderful care via the VA Homebound Primary Care program out of the Lecanto VA Clinic and also enjoys now having some doctor appointments scheduled at The Villages Outpatient Clinic. I do not doubt that in a system as large as the Veterans Administration there are bound to be areas that are struggling more than others. However, I just wanted to take the time to praise the exceptional care my father has experienced in our local area and express our thanks to those who provide that care. Sincerely, Sandra Woodard BushnellChoosing the healthy options for kidsKids dont make a lot of choices during their school day. From the first bell in the morning until they leave in the afternoon, they spend their days listening to adults tell them where to sit, what to study and what homework to complete. Theres one notable exception to all of this structure, though: meals and snacks. Whether theyre picking between entrees in the lunch line or choosing a drink from a vending machine, todays students have more choices for food and beverages than ever before. Unfortunately, not all of these choices are healthy onesand theyre having a real impact on our childrens health. In addition to whats sold in the main cafeteria line, many schools sell a la carte snacks, entrees and beverages. These extras tend to be lower in nutritional value and higher in calories, sugar, fat and sodium than foods served in school meal programs. Since many children consume up to 50 percent of their daily calories at school and since nearly one in three American kids is overweight or obese, ensuring that school food choices are healthy choices is a major priority. Research has shown that eating better helps students perform better in school academically And forming strong nutritional habits early will help lead to a lifetime of better eating habits. Fortunately, in June 2013 the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released updated nutrition standards for all snack foods and beverages sold in schools. The standards will provide schools with the guidance to make every food and drink sold during the school day a healthy choice, and thats the kind of choice we should give our kids. The next step is creating state and local policies that will ensure these standards are implemented in order to make healthy snacks a reality in every school. We also need to make sure that our students who participate in afterschool activities have the same healthy choices after the final bell. The fundraisers and celebrations that occur also need healthy alternatives. Choice is a good thing. But when it comes to our kids, those choices should be healthy ones. Elevating nutritional standards for snack and a la carte foods and beverages will eliminate the least healthy food options for kids and replace them with food choices that compete without sacrificing nutrition. Thats the school food environment I want my kids to have. How about you? Sincerely, Patricia Love Member of the American Heart Association Advocacy Subcommittee The problem with dating your phone In the movie Her, a man in Los Angeles dates his smartphone. Its not as far-fetched as it sounds. The movie is set in the future, but not that far into the future, in a time when people feel more comfortable and connected with their pocket-size computers than with other humans. In the movie, lonely and morose Theodore Twombly is going through a divorce. Ironically, his job is writing personal, computer-handwritten letters to people letters of love and affection and genuineness. He has a real gift for communicating other peoples feelings, but hes not good at communicating his own, until he meets Samantha. Samantha is an OS1, a computer operating system, only with the ability to learn, develop and evolve. She and the other OS1s are designed to adapt to their owners individual needs and personalities, thus making them perfect companions. As Theodore spends nearly all his time talking with Samantha, he eventually falls in love with her. He takes her everywhere, slipping his smartphone/computer in his shirt pocket with the devices camera exposed so Samantha can see as theyre on their dates together. At first, Theodore is reluctant to admit to friends and coworkers that hes dating his phone, but eventually he does, which strangely isnt all that strange to them. He and Samantha even double date with another (human) couple. When Samantha tells Theodore shes in love with him, hes ecstatic, as happy as any man in love can be. But then, Samantha starts to distance herself from him, much like a human girlfriend might do. She starts talking with other OS1s and outgrows Theodore, which troubles him. Whereas once she was always there for him 24/7, she now disappears for periods of time, which panics him. In one eye-opening scene, Theodore is out walking the citys elevated walkway and he notices everyone is connected to his or her own digital/computer device. He asks Samantha if she talks to anyone else besides him, if she has a relationship with anyone else. She tells him yes. How many? he asks, appalled when she says shes talking to 8,316 other people at the same time she talks to him. Are you in love with any of them? When she tells him shes in love with 641 other people, hes devastated. He wanted, he thought, he was the only one, that what they had was special and uniquely theirs, as it would be if they were both human. Theodore is content to continue loving Samantha without a body, but Samantha wants more. She wants a body so she can experience humanity and true relationship. However, its the one thing she cannot have. She even tries using a human surrogate, but it doesnt work. Theodore wants her, Samantha. A Christianity Today movie reviewer says a theme of Her is incarnation. He says it points to Christ who chose to reveal God to us by wrapping himself in flesh, to become one of us with a body and soul, to live among us, to eat and sleep, to hunger and thirst, to laugh and cry and die like we do. God could have sent an OS, but he didnt. He sent his Son. Because he did, we can have a real relationship with him. We are incarnate beings, physical bodies within a physical world, the movie reviewer writes. By the end of Her, Theodore knows it. We were made for bodily, not digital, presence with one another. The movie ends with the touching image of Theodore and his friend Amy sitting on a bench together, Amys head on Theodores shoulder. It reminded me that God once said, Its not good for man to be alone, and made the man a human companion. He didnt give him an iPad. We were made for human connection, as messy and difficult as it may be. Its why the church exists, so we can, as my pastor says, walk to heaven together. Its not good for man (or woman) to be alone.

But there is a big difference between a church and the Church. The Church is not a building or a place. The word Church comes from the Greek ekklesia which means an assembly or called out ones. Gods people are The Church. Unfortunately, many people have had bad experiences attending church and have decided to read or watch television instead; but understand there are many false teachers out there. If you have had bad experiences with socalled Christians, dont give up. Does it bother you because there are so many hypocrites in church? What better place for them to be than a hospital for their soul? And there is always room for one more! Do you think we are too judgmental? Arent you judging us then? Come visit with us. Is Wahoo perfect? No Church is. We are just normal people like you. Wahoo Baptist Church presents the The Church in our series Essentials: What Christians Believe & Why We Believe It on June 15 taught by Pastor Paul Alonso. No dress code. Seriously, everyone is welcome here. Our traditional service is at 8 a.m. and our contemporary service is at 10:45 a.m. Wahoo Baptist Church is in Bushnell at 4517 C.R. 319, just off C.R. 48 in the big Wahoo curve.

The Cave family was expecting a phone call on Friday night Garrett, graduating from South Sumter with a baseball scholarship to college and a pitching speed in 90-plus mile per hour range, was told there was chance he would get an offer to play in the major leagues. Garrett was really disappointed Friday, his dad Sim said, noting they didnt get an offer Friday. He loaded up his boat and went fishing by him self. But Saturday was a different day a day when a young boys dreams have grown and the chance to play pro baseball might just become reality. On that day, instead of leaving home disappointed, Garrett came peeling into the yard and running into the house, his dad said. He had gotten a call from one of the scouts, letting him know that an offer was coming from the New York Yankees. Cave was drafted by the Yankees in the 17th round. He went from being down in the dumps Friday to being on top, his dad said. It was huge. We were all disappointed, of course, Friday -because it didnt happen like we thought it would. Early on, they were told if Garrett didnt get an offer on Friday, somebody would likely pick up the option on Saturday, but the money would not be there. But on Saturday, We were beside ourselves that it was the Yankees, Cave said of their pleasure in the offer. While Garrett has practiced and worked and trained, most of what the Bushnell teen has is natural talent. Hes got a God-given gift in the way his arm works. Hes got a very loose arm and it acts like a whip when he throws. Even in his youth, he had a special ability to get the ball in. The Lord has put people in his path all along the way, his dad said. He started with a Lakeland travel team, but through family friend Ronald Strickland, got an offer to play with an Inverness team for a tournament at Disney. The 11 and under team won and Garrett also got the chance to play in Cooperstown New York. Under Coach Rob Brasher, hes played for The Tampa Grey, The Florida Crackers and The Florida Hardballers travel teams they play under Coach John Colachi with the Hardballers. The father of one of the players on the team in Tampa was also an assistant scout for the New York Giants. There watching his son play, he noticed Garrett. While they dont typically begin watching the youth play at such a young age, he put Garrett in the system, Cave said. Brasher said Garrett has always had a natural, raw talent with a love for the game and a player who didnt mind working. I think its great, Brasher said, noting that Garrett has really spent the last two-plus years dedicated to honing his skills. And its paid off for him. While the Cave family is thrilled with the offer, Garrett might not sign. As a matter of fact, his dad thinks hell go on to college. Not that its a bad thing. While he may not play for the Yankees this season, they will still have first option on him in three years and Garrett will have a chance to hone his craft even more. If he chooses to play now, the offer has to include enough money to make it worthwhile for him to pass on his college education and the scholarship he was awarded. Its a win-win for him and three years from now, they have first shot at him. Cave said the professional scouts look at players different than college scouts. While the college scout is looking at what the player can do right now, the pro scout sees him three to five years from now, thats when players put on another 25 pounds or so, increase their pitching speed and have worked with a pitching coach, Cave said. He was drafted as a pitcher and thats where he excels, his dad said. He explained that 87 and 88 miles per hour, with a good command is a good speed; 90, 92 and especially 95, like Garrett did back in March, are more pro ball. Working with a coach could get those speeds into triple digit. He started playing travel ball when he was nine. For eight years weve been taking him all over the place, his dad said of their efforts to give him a venue to play in. Cave said Garrett has probably wanted to play professional baseball since he was a little boy, but, I think he really realized he had the potential three years ago, when his travel coach sat him down. He told Garrett he could do it, but it was something that would that included some other improvements to the water plant, including a new equipment building, the city installed the first group of solar panels about two years ago, Council President Richard Huff said. Those were designed to provide 35 kilowatts of electric power. A kilowatt equals 1,000 watts. The recent addition of solar panels doubled the power capability to 70 kilowatts, bringing the solar capacity up to the operating demands of the water plant, Huff said. Thats slightly more energy than it takes to power 1,166 conventional, 60-watt incandescent light bulbs. Unlike many residential solar electric systems, Colemans installation does not have batteries to store power. At night, the system runs off the grid the conventional electric utility. And, when theres no power, a backup generator will automatically start. When the sun is out, the system is designed to put electric power back onto the grid. Using a special electric meter, the city is credited for that production. According to the engineers, we shouldnt have to pay an electric bill it should be a wash, Huff said. Its still very new, and he has not seen any reports yet. The solar plant doesnt solve all the economic problems of operating the water system, but it helps, Huff said. Theres still a big problem of operating a system with an 800,000 gallons-per-day capacity for a city thats only using 60,000 gallons-per-day. Another good thing is that the city didnt directly spend any money on the system improvement it was all from grants, according to Hufff. Coleman got into solar power after the councils grant-writing consultant told them about funds being possibly available for such a project, Huff said. The council decided to pursue it. The funds came via Community Development Block Grants through the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, according to Cathy Baker, grant consultant with Jordan and Associates, in Orange Park. The $600,000 primary grant came from American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funds, Baker said. Due to its economic situation, Coleman was one of only two cities in Florida to get these particular grants. The second grant provided a little more than $475,000 to complete the project. Colemans contracted water plant operator, ECO-2000, Bushnell, expressed support for the project. When our clients are in the construction planning stage, ECO-2000, inc. recommends that they compare equipment value, maintenance and performance when making decisions, General Manager Charlie Jones stated to the Times. In the case of solar farms, which convert sunlight into electricity, I am a firm believer that all municipalities should consider tapping into this alternative source of natural energy due to the operational and financial benefits.

EDUCATION Spring FCAT results are available for Sumter Sumter District Schools are Preparing the Next Generation Today for college and workforce readiness. Despite the rigorous changes made to FCAT Writes requirements, Sumter has been designated as an Academically High-Performing School District by the State Board of Education. Based on 2013 school and district grades, 2013-2014 class size compliance and 20122013 financial audit reviews, Sumter joined 10 other districts who met all eligibility criteria for achieving this recognition. While there is always room for improvement, great effort is a prerequisite to great results, said Superintendent, Rick Shirley. Congratulations to the teachers, students, and staff for a job well done and another successful year, he added. Since 2006, Sumter District Schools have implemented intensive district-wide programs with strategic professional development for teachers to increase students writing proficiency. Based on the scores released by the Florida Department of Education, Sumters efforts are paying off. Third grade students improved their performance on both FCAT 2.0 Reading and maintained their performance on FCAT 2.0 Mathematics test. Sixty-four percent of 3rd grade students scored at level 3 or above on FCAT 2.0 Reading, compared to 63 percent in 2012-13. State-wide, 57 percent of students passed the test. Third grade students achieved a mean score of 204, which is four percentage points above the state average. Sumters third grade students are also holding their own in math. For two years in a row, 68 percent of students scored at level 3 or above on FCAT 2.0 Math, compared to 58 percent statewide. Student gains in math can be attributed to teachers targeting the new Florida Standards through inquiry-based learning and an increased emphasis on critical thinking. Fifty-two percent of Sumters fourth grade students scored at a level 3.5 or above on expository writing, compared to the state average of 53 percent. Fourth grade students also achieved a mean score of 3.3 on a 6.0 scale, which is at the state average. As a result, Sumters fourth grade students earned the distinction of being ranked 22nd out of 67 Florida counties in writing. Sumters eighth grades students also showed learning gains. Sixty-four percent of students scored at a level 3.5 or above in expository writing, compared to the state average of 56 percent of students scoring at this level. Eighth grade students also achieved a mean score of 3.6 on a 6.0 scale, which is 2.0 percentage points higher than the state average. As a result, Sumters eighth grade students earned the distinction of being ranked 11th out of 67 Florida counties in writing. Sumters tenth grade students were the stars of the show when it came to expository writing this year. Seventy-two percent of students scored at a level 3.5 or above, compared to 64 percent state-wide. Tenth grade students also achieved a mean score of 3.6 on a 6.0 scale, which is slightly above the state average of 3.5. As a result, Sumters tenth grade students earned the distinction of being ranked 4th out of 67 Florida counties in writing. Since the FCAT 2.0 reading, math and writing tests will be replaced with tougher tests next year, plans are already underway to provide teachers with additional professional development so they can assist students in meeting the increasing demands of changing state assessments, satisfying more rigorous state curriculum requirements and completing differentiated promotion standards. We appreciate the efforts of our students, staff and community in preparing our students for success, said Superintendent, Rick Shirley. Due to their hard work, it was no surprise that the district was at or above the state average for the mean prompt score in all tested grades for the 201314 school year, he added.

Patricana Walker was also named a recipient, but was not available for the photograph. The students were selected from a list of applicants at Wildwood Middle High School. Each participant was chosen based on scholastics, commitment to community and the desire to further their education. The scholarships are made possible through the proceeds from the Christmas Tour of Homes, hosted by the womens group each December. Wildwood Womens Club The Wildwood Womans Club members held their annual End of the Year Social recently. Members Jackie Stephens and Roslyn Davidson are shown at the annual tea and social, held at Pollys Pantry in Wildwood. During this social the 2014 Scholarship recipients and their mothers were invited to meet the women of the club. Potential new members were also invited to attend so they could learn more about the group and what they do through the year. The Wildwood Womans Club meets the fourth Monday of the month beginning in September and running through May. The Christmas Tour of Homes is the first Saturday in December. Anyone interested in becoming a member can either call 461-3206 or come to a meeting. The monthly meetings are at 6:15 p.m. at the VFW in Wildwood. SunTrust and LSSC Team Up to Award Scholarships With the cost of tuition and books rising nationwide, the LSSC Foundation stands firm in its commitment to increase the number of scholarships provided to students. Butler named MVP at Dade South Sumter High Schools Melanie Butler was named the very first MVP earning the scholarship and award for the title. While Butler was a great team player, her title is for the Most Valuable Pioneer, as a member of the park Pioneers group. Butler served at the park through her junior year, according to pioneers coordinator Karen Cloud. Butler has been in attendance at nearly every event the park has hosted, serving as photographer and assistant for events. Shes also been an outstanding role model for our youth, Cloud said. During the USO WWII weekend, she borrowed a hat from her great-grandmother and found a 1940s outfit. During those events that take visitors even farther back in time, including the Florida Folk Music Festival, Butler donned the garb of an early Florida pioneer woman. As a senior, Melanie stayed in motion. She joined the newlyformed Dade Pioneers, which met once a month for ages eight through 18. Along with some 20 other high school volunteers, she assisted the new group and encouraged others to volunteer. She plans to volunteer at both the parks summer camps in the next few days and weeks. Thats something that is a testament to her devotion to her community, according to Cloud. She will be going off to college in August, yet, found two weeks she could give to the park she so loves. Cloud believes she is a tough act to follow and the board will have a difficult time choosing next years MVP, after seeing Butlers dedication. Melanie logged over 300 hours of service to Dade Battlefield Historic State Park in her two years. Most Valuable Pioneer, Melanie Butler, accepts a certificate award and a check for $200 from Jim Velton. Butler earned the honor for more than 300 hours of volunteer service time at the park.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE12, 2014, PAGEA11 The Sumter County 4-H office coordinated the annual 4-H/Tropicana Public Speaking Contest last month, with Sumter students earning their rankings. A countywide competition, the event has two divisions one is for fourth and fifth graders and the other is for sixth graders. Each of the divisions had a first, second, third and honorable mention awards. The final county round was held at the West Central Florida Agricultural Education Center on May 15. The three judges retired teacher, counselor and administrator Susan Jones; Lake Sumter State College trustee member Marcia Butler and assistant elections supervisor Karen Rushing listened and evaluated, as the students gave their speeches. Fifth grade Sophia Riddle, of The Villages Charter School, earned second place in the Most Entertaining Speech category with her speech Music; fourth grader Reagan Bumer, Lake Panasoffkee Elementary School, earned third place in the fourth/fifth division for Horseback Riding for Beginners in the Most Informative Speech category; fourth grader Jessie Strickland, Wildwood Elementary School, earned an honorable mention for Vincent Van Gogh in the fourth/fifth grade division for the Most Historical Speech. Sixth grader Ronald Parris, Wildwood Middle High School, earned second place in the sixth grade division of the Most Inspirational Speech category for Why bully?; fifth grader Brooke Turner earned an honorable mention in the fourth/fifth grade division for My Passion for Cutting, in the Most Original speech category; sixth grader Hayley Dixon, of South Sumter Middle School, earned first place in the sixth grade division with Dairy Cow Judging, in the Most Persuasive Speech Category; fifth grader Riley Preece, of Webster Elementary School, earned the third place ranking in the fourth/ fifth grade division for Captain Derek Jeter, in the Most Dramatic Speech category. Annually, the contest helps thousands of young people learn to write and deliver a speech. More than 150,000 young people, in more than 50 Florida counties participate in the contest. Since Tropicana began sponsoring the contest in 1969, nearly two million students have participated. Tropicana, a division of PepsiCo., provides classroom materials for teachers, trophies for county winners, summer camp scholarships and even refreshments at the contests. FROM THE GROUND UP Question: When my queen palm died, I planted another queen and it died. The leaves started turning yellow from the bottom up, then brown and in a short time it died. What is going on?Answer:Without a tissue test we can only guess from the symptoms. Sounds like fusarium wilt; a pathogen host-specific to queen palms and Washingtonian palms. One side of the leaf will turn yellow and there is usually a red strip on the petiole (stem); then the whole leaf turns yellow and eventually brown. In a matter of 2-3 months, it will move up the canopy eventually killing the spear leaf and the palm dies. The leaves, once they turn brown, do not fall off as a normal leaf would. There is no prevention or cure. However, this disease can be spread by pruning without sterilizing pruners first. Not sterilizing takes the disease from palm to palm. If you prune your own palms, use 70 percent rubbing alcohol and spray the pruning tools. If you have a landscaper, be sure they sterilize their tools. Never let anyone prune your palm with a chainsaw as you cannot sterilize them. We do not recommend planting another palm in this area.Question:I planted peace lilies outside 4 years ago and they have done well. Now the leaves are turning black and the one I have indoors is doing the same thing.Answer:Spathiphyllum or Peace Lily is really an indoor plant. Its native habitat is the tropics and on the forest floor. Zone 9A is subtropical not tropical. You have been fortunate that they have done so well outside but they are obviously not doing well now. They do not like direct sunlight and they do not like our heat. The soil should be moist but well drained as they do not like wet feet. It sounds like the problem is too much water. And the leaf samples from the outdoor plants also look a little sun burned. For the inside plant, make sure you arent over-watering and allowing the plant to sit in a dish that hold water. For the outside plants, maybe consider digging them up, putting them in well-draining pots and bringing them inside. Eventually the outside peace lilies will die when we have a cold winter. And a really important point, a NASA study indicates that the Peace Lily can clean many toxins from the air in your home including formaldehyde and carbon monoxide. So bring them inside and enjoy the cleaner air!Question: We would like to plant bush daisies in an area at our house. We found Euryops chrysanthemoides at a local garden center. The plant label for them said they get 6 tall. We only want them to get 2 tall; can we prune them back severely without harming them to keep them at 2?Answer:In a word, No. And thank you so much for using the botanical name! That helps us greatly! That plant is meant to get 6 and constantly pruning it down can stress it and you may find it doesnt bloom much either. Plus, I dont think you want to spend your spare time constantly pruning plants. One of the Florida-Friendly-Landscaping principles is Right Plant, Right Place. This is definitely not the right plant for that place. Euryops pectinata (another type of African Bush Daisy) only gets 2 tall. It is being used more and more as a replacement for E. chrysanthemoides (also called Gamolepis chrysanthemoides) as it is more compact, has denser foliage and blooms more. Youll have happier plants and very little maintenance for you! To submit questions to Ask the Master Gardener please call 352-793-2728, Ext. 229 or email us at plantclinic@aol.com.

PAGEA12SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, JUNE12, 2014 After hitting the ball out for the that 3-in-1, Merritt hits the bases.Sumter sports Merritt leads Florida to national title They did it! The Gators took the Womens College World Series title on Tuesday, June 3. That really was former South Sumter High softball star Kirsti Merritt playing hero June 3 in the University of Florida 6-3 national title win over Alabama. The Lake Panasoffke resident hit a three-run home run and made a spectacular seventh inning diving catch to give the Gators major offense and defense. The Gators had two victories against Alabama to finish off the NCAA College World Series. Merritt had plenty of family support in the NCAA Softball championship game at Oklahoma City. Her mother, Kelly Goodwin, her brother Bryce, stepfather Hank Goodwin and her paternal grandparents, Bobby and Joan Merritt, were all there cheering the sophomore centerfielder on. Watching her daughter become a star in front of a national audience was beyond a dream come true for Goodwin. We were all there and were able to see the team sweep the finals, she said. Its very exciting and kind of surreal. It hasnt sunk in. Im glad that their work paid off. Emotionally, watching her daughter play was draining on Mom. I cant explain it, she said. You are relieved. We hit every pitch. There havent been the words to express the joy you feel. You are kind of speechless. For her to be able to come through is pretty amazing. Kirsti Merritt is truly living the dream. Just being a Gator is part of the fantasy. This is her dream school, said her mother. She wanted to be a Gator her whole life. Merritts play helped the Gators win their first softball national title ever. They were 55-12 on the season and 2-0 in the series with Alabama. Merritt batted second and was a major part of the offense all year. She batted .299 with 13 home runs, 57 runs and 52 runs batted in. She developed some power in college. After the game, Head Coach Tim Walton expressed his congratulations to Alabama and his pride in his own team. We just felt good about our team. This team actually set a goal, to win the national championship, he said, noting it was kind of gutsy, kind of bold. We dont have a superstar on our team, we have a bunch players that do their job, and this is something very, very, very special and Im very proud of them. According to Walton, the university as a place with Olympians and where We do win championships, its expected. Its a place where players are taken good care of, given the resources to be the best and expected to win and graduate. Walton said they had two top players listed on the top 100 ESPN list and players that completely bought into not only the program, but how we were going do it and they accepted their roles. He said he was in awe of their professionalism and of their playing and didnt want to say make it look easy, because its not, but they made it look easy. He also credits some of their Merritt was all action during the womens college softball finals. Shes shown here at bat. Gator and South Sumter High School graduate Kirsti Merritt is shown in action during the Florida Gators game against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Womens College World Series Finals on Tuesday, June 3.

It may have been a little hot for others but Kristin Donahue was enjoying what may be her last Florida triathlon Saturday. On a day when the temperatures were supposed to be up to 97 degrees, the 26-year-old first grade teacher felt pretty cool at the Crystal River Sprint Triathlon #1 race at Fort Island Gulf Beach. She was one of 253 participants. Donahue is moving to Fort Collins, Colorado where she will teach first grade. The Dade City resident, originally from Sumter, finished 29th overall with a time of 1:13:17.3. She won the Twilight Triathlon in 2013 and has been running races for over 10 years. Her Dad, Bill, 65, also ran and was 64th with a time of 1:21.17.8. Kristin was first in her 25-29 female age group. A native of Webster, Florida, she was on the University of Florida Tri Gators team and has competed internationally as well. She was a standout swimmer and cross country runner at Zephyrhills High School. This week, she will have something to tell her first graders at Show and Tell in Bushnell Elementary. Its probably my last race in Florida for a little bit, said Donahue. Maybe (I will run) at the Turkey Trot at Thanksgiving. I did okay. I dont have all my leg speed. I think it went pretty well. Im happy. My Dad was out there racing. Of course, we wanted to come to Crystal River.

Companion animals can face huge life threatening dangers if left unattended during a dangerous storm. The HS/SPCA strongly urges pet owners to provide a safe haven for their pets indoors where they may be shielded from the risk of lightning, electrocution, flying debris, drowning or injuries caused in their attempts to flee from their fear of an oncoming storm. These resources and tips are offered to protect your pets during the upcoming hurricane season: If you plan to evacuate, bring your pets. Remember, if its not safe for you to be there, its not safe for them either. Evacuation should take place no later than 2448 hours before any storm makes landfall predicted towards your residence. Notify family or friends that you will be bringing your pets along. If you are leaving the storm area and you plan to stay at a pet friendly hotel/shelter, reservations must be made immediately as sites book up rapidly during an emergency. Keep your pets inside or in a secure room or crate. Animals have been known to panic to such an extent that they will bolt from their home and run in terror to avoid storms. If windows break, pets loose in a house, have been known to flee from the debris and chaos. Operating portable generators must be kept in sheltered but open air environments. Do not keep pets in a garage with an operating generator. The carbon monoxide fumes are toxic and will potentially kill them and you. All pets should have more than one form of ID on them (ID tag and microchip) and an emergency contact number out of the storms range in case you are separated. Have their current paperwork stored in waterproof bags or storage containers. All pets should be current on vaccinations and needed prescriptions should be filled before the storm arrives. Provide at least a two week supply of medications, water and pet food for each pet. (Dont forget to have a manual can opener if there is no electricity). Have a pet first aid kit ready. Horses and other livestock: If you plan to evacuate your horses, do not find yourself stranded on a crowded highway with a loaded horse trailer. High winds may cause a trailer to flip over and flooded areas make hauling livestock even more dangerous. Make all pet related arrangements well in advance, have ample fuel, tires/brakes/lights checked and allow for slower than normal travel time. If you have horses or other livestock, make sure they are NOT locked in barns but instead have the option to run out towards an open space in case of a barn collapse during high winds or potential tornadoes. Have a breakaway halter (preferably leather) with an ID tag secured to it or a luggage tag woven into their mane. Velcro fetlock ID bands, available at local feed stores, allow you to write your contact information on them should the animal escape their property lines if trees come down on fence lines. Perishable livestock feed and hay should be stored in an elevated place away from flooded areas and store feeds in plastic bins to prevent deadly molds from growing. Pre-fill any empty tubs with water so it will be readily available to livestock during the entire storms presence in the event you may lose power and cannot pump water from your well. Remove any loose or lightweight objects which could become projectiles in high winds. These items can potentially impale and kill animals. Recovery of Lost Pets: Make sure pets always wear proper identification. Licensing your pets greatly increases the chances of reuniting a lost pet with its owner. An overwhelming number of pets are lost specifically during hurricane season due to their attempt to escape the chaos and with no form of ID, they have little chance of being reunited with their owners. Dont make your pet a tragic statistic! If you need to find your lost pet, contact The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. at 352793-9117 or the Sumter County Animal Services Department at 352-5691960. Make sure you have a current photo of your pet with you (this proves the connection of you and the lost pet), with all contact information. Create a flyer with the photo and info and post it at all local veterinary offices, groomers, pet supply stores and throughout your neighborhood plus mentioning it to each neighbor so they are all on the alert to help. The Sumter County Emergency Management has many other helpful disaster planning tips available at sumtercountyfl.gov under the Emergency Management department listing. South Sumter High School, located at 706 N. Main St. (SR 475) in Bushnell is designated as the Pet-Friendly Shelter in Sumter County. All pets must be crated. The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-based organization helping all animals in need throughout Sumter County, Florida. Donations directly help to cover the cost of saving, treating, and caring for neglected, abused and abandoned animals. To find out more about the HS/SPCA, visit hsspca.org, call 352793-9117 or visit them at their facility located at 994 CR 529A, in Lake Panasoffkee Mon.-Sat. 10am-4pm. Be mindful of summer dangers. Dont make this a deadly summer. Never leave your pet in a parked vehicle even with the windows cracked open. I recently did an experiment. I bought a digital thermometer and put it in the back seat of my car. I left my front and back windows half way down. I was parked in the shade, and the outside temperature was 84 degrees. It was a comfortable day without any humidity and a gentle steady breeze blowing. I made a quick run into the store to pick up a few necessities. When I came out, the thermometer inside my car read 104! In just a short amount of time, an animal left inside a vehicle would be in danger of a deadly heatstroke. If you see a pet inside a parked vehicle, go inside the nearest business and have the owner of the vehicle paged. Go back out and check on the animals condition. This scenario can quickly change from bad to worse. Call 911 if necessary. It is an act of cruelty and illegal to endanger an animal in this situation. Beware of Heartworms. Heartworms are deadly and spread by mosquitoes. They attack the heart muscle and strangle the heart and lungs. Dont let this happen to your pet. You cannot use regular worming medication to prevent or treat heartworms. You must use heartworm preventative that can be purchased only at a veterinarians office. Keep your pet on heartworm preventative year round in Florida. Vaccinate your pet. Florida state law requires all dogs and cats 3 months and older to have a current rabies vaccination. To assure your pet stays healthy, see your veterinarian to get your pet all necessary vaccinations. Preferable, your pet has access to an indoor air conditioned area. But if your pet is outside in the heat of the day, be sure he is in shade and has plenty of water. Buy an inexpensive kiddy pool from a local store and fill it with water for your pet to cool off in. You must provide shelter for an outside pet, it is the law! The shelter should be large enough for your pet to fit into and turn around in, so that he can get out of the afternoon thunder storms. The shelter should be in a shaded area. Animals can suffer heat stroke just like people. Be aware of the dangers of Floridas hot and humid summers. Hurricane season is here. Be prepared! Have a plan for you and your pet if you need to evacuate. Never leave your pet behind If it is not safe for you, it is not safe for your pet. Investigate before the storm learn where the closest pet friendly shelters or pet friendly hotels are located. Animals should wear identification tags. Microchip your pet for extra protection to assure being reunited if he gets lost. Keep pet vaccinations current. Have an extra supply on hand of special diet food and medications your pet may require. Be aware of the specific dangers summer brings. Keep in mind the safety and well being of your pet. With the proper precautions, your pet can have a safe and happy summer. Keep pets safe during 2014 hurricane season Summer dangers precautions for petsCritter chatter Linda Graves Humane Society

And since then, professional ball scouts have been at the games and Garrett has been filling out questionnaires lots of questionnaires. His parents are ecstatic, because Hes starting to realize his dream. Cave chatted about the support theyve had from family, friends and coaches. Its been a long journey. His mom and I area extremely proud, Cave said not only of where he is, but of how he has portrayed himself. Theyve had eight or nine scouts come to the house to meet with Garrett and the family. His father said Garrett doesnt act 17, he acts 24 or 25. I think a lot of the scouts actually saw that. And while it has been a very long road, Cave said, Its been worth every minute of it, as they watch their sons dreams beginning to come true.NOTE For an earlier story on Garrett Cave, visit the sports tab at www.sumtercountytimes.com. TEENcontinued from Page A7 The Florida Department of Health in counties across Central Florida are reminding families to be safe when enjoying fresh water activities during the summer months. Everyone should take precautions while swimming in warm freshwater lakes, rivers and ponds due to the threat posed by the amoeba Naegleria fowleri. Naegleria fowleri is a naturally occurring amoeba that can be found in any body of fresh water such as lakes, rivers, hot springs and poorly maintained and minimally-chlorinated or un-chlorinated swimming pools. This amoeba can cause an infection known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM) by traveling up the nose to the brain and spinal cord. This generally happens during activities such as swimming, diving, waterskiing, or wakeboarding. In very rare instances, Naegleria infections may also occur from people irrigating their sinuses (nose) using contaminated tap water. There is an increased risk of infection by this organism in all freshwater areas in Florida, especially during hot summer months, said Dr. Kevin M. Sherin, director of the Department of Health in Orange County. Infections usually occur when it is hot for prolonged periods, causing higher water temperatures and lower water levels, said Dr. Swannie Jett, health officer of the Department of Health in Seminole County. Some measures that might reduce your risk of infection include: Avoiding water-related activities in bodies of warm freshwater, hot springs and thermally-polluted water such as water around power plants. Avoiding water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels. Keeping your head out of the water, holding your nose shut or using nose clips when taking part in water-related activities in bodies of warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, or hot springs. Avoiding digging in or stirring up the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas. If you are irrigating, flushing, or rinsing your sinuses, use water that has been: distilled; sterilized; previously boiled for 1 minute (at elevations above 6,500 feet, boil for 3 minutes) and left to cool; or filtered, using a filter with an absolute pore size of 1 micron or smaller. Rinse the irrigation device after each use with water that has been distilled, sterilized, filtered, or previously boiled and leave the device open to air dry completely. Although infections are rare, most prove to be fatal. Seek medical care immediately if you develop a sudden onset of fever, headache, stiff neck, and vomiting especially if you have been in warm fresh water within the previous 2 weeks. People should always assume there is a low level of risk for infection whenever entering warm fresh water.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District (District,) in cooperation with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will be treating a boat access trail along the western shoreline (Outlet River side) of Lake Panasoffkee to improve boat access and navigation through areas of dense aquatic plants. The 4-mile-long, 100feet-wide trail on the 3,300 acre lake will be treated the week of June 16-20. The treatment involves the application of the aquatic herbicide Aquathol K by airboat to approximately 52 acres of the lake. Maps indicating the location of the boat trail and the applicable water use restrictions will be posted at local fish camps and boat ramps as well as on the Districts website at the following link WaterMatters.org/LakeP an. There are no restrictions on the use of lake water for swimming, fishing, boating or irrigating established turf, ornamental plants and crops. Water from the treated area should not be used for drinking or irrigating annual nursery or green house crops including hydroponics and newly seeded or transplanted annual crops, newly seeded or transplanted ornamentals, and newly sodded or seeded turf for seven days following treatment. Water should not be used for animal consumption for 14 days following treatment. Water use restrictions do not apply to well or tap water. For more information, please call the District at 796-7211 or 1-800-423-1476. Garrett Cave (center) stands with his mom, Gail and his dad, Sim, when he signed on last year, for a college scholarship.
