A potential victim was able to flee from two men last Saturday evening by crashing into their vehicle as they attempted to block her vehicle inside her driveway, according to a sheriffs department report. The unidentified Oxford woman told sheriffs deputies that she was followed home Saturday when she left the Cross Roads Bar in Summerfield, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. They followed her to her home on County Road 103 and as the victim drove into her carport, the men parked behind her. The suspect vehicle, a 2013 Hyundi, was occupied by two men, the report states. One of the suspects, riding in the passenger seat of the car, got out and approached the womans vehicle, according to the report. He reportedly approached the drivers side door while the woman was inside, pointed a handgun at her and then attempting to get inside her vehicle by grabbing the door handle. The woman told officers she then saw the driver of the Hyundi get out of the car and walk toward her vehicle, the report states. The woman then put her vehicle in reverse and slammed into the Hyundi. She then drove across the street to another residence for help. Her actions disrupted any potential for a crime to continue, Caruthers said. At the neighboring residence, the woman called law enforcement for help. In the meantime, the suspects fled north in their vehicle on C.R. 103. When deputies responded to the incident, they found a vehicle that fit the victims description at the Methodist church on C.R. 466, Caruthers said. The vehicle had damage consistent with the incident and with the broken pieces of the suspects vehicle found in the womans driveway. The woman was transported by a deputy to the church where she identified the suspect and the vehicle. The vehicle was occupied by Keijuan Jamal Callaway, 32, of Lakeland. Callaway admitted to being at the bar along with another man he only knows as Javon, according to the report.He admitted to following the woman from the bar and that he was only following instructions from his passenger. Callaway was arrested for attempted burglary and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $30,000. Investigators are still seeking the other suspect in the crime. The City of Bushnell is hosting a one-hour presentation about identity theft and how to not become a victim.

BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesStarting Sept. 8, EBT cardholders can purchase fresh produce at the Sumter County Farmers Market, using their cards. Frankie Bullock, Bud Fussell and Martha Maddox are shown with a scale full of produce at the Sumter County Farmers Market. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection last week proposed spending $69 million in Florida springs projects, including one in Sumter County, leveraged by the $30 million Gov. Rick Scott secured in the Its Your Money Tax Cut Budget. It brings the total invested in springs projects to more than $100 million in the last two years. During this year alone, DEP has developed a project plan to support nearly $70 million in springs restoration projects. Including in the project is a restoration plan for Lake Panasoffkee. We fought last session to secure funding for protecting and restoring Florida springs, said Scott. These nearly $70 million in projects that DEP is proposing will restore water quality, protect water flow and reduce water consumption. We look forward to working with the Legislature and local partners in doing what it Keijuan Jamal Callaway, 32, of Lakeland, was arrested for attempted burglary and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Program launched at farmers market If you rely on an EBT card for your groceries and would love some fresh produce from the Sumter County Farmers Market, then get your tokens and get in line. Next month, starting Monday, Sept. 8, recipients of the states food assistance program will be able to buy fresh produce at the Sumter County Farmers Market in Webster through a brand new program. Individuals will go the markets main office and have their card swiped for whatever dollar amount in produce they want. Theyll then receive tokens in the specified amount which can be used to purchase fresh produce from vendors at the market.

The program will begin with an official ribbon cutting ceremony on site, according to Sumter County Extension Office Agent Martha Maddox. She was the representative who coordinated the effort. Produce vendor and local farmer Bud Fussell was the person who initiated the program, by asking about having it put in place. Fussell is also approved to make EBT sales at his Webster farm. Maddox said theyve been working on the project for about a year now and it began when Fussell came to the extension office and asked how he could get EBT established at his farm. Maddox began working with him on getting his farm established and then they followed up with the market. Maddox said she did research and gave a presentation to the market board members, who decided to move forward on the project. What Im hoping is that it provides the Sumter County residents that have EBT more affordable fresh produce. It will support our local vendors and famers that raise the local produce, People will be able to eat better and fresher and it will bring revenue into the county and folks shopping locally, she said. It was something that we thought would help the people in the area and not only that, bring more customers to the market, said market office manager, Delores Lewis. As for the vendors, They seem excited about it, and want to know when its going to happen.

I would like to thank Governor Scott for his leadership in providing record-setting funding for springs restoration. Our Florida Legislature, the water management districts and local elected officials continue to show their commitment to protect and restore springs throughout the Sunshine State, said DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. We look forward to the Legislative Budget Commission approving this great plan that will enable state and local partners to protect the quality and quantity of water that flows from our springs. The project plan is a collaborative effort with the department, water management districts, community leaders and local stakeholders, and the contributions and cooperation of these agencies and individuals have been crucial throughout the development process. Combining efforts and resources from various agencies across Florida allows for more efficient, more comprehensive water restoration. The health of our springs is a top priority of the department. Protecting these natural resources by identifying and funding springs projects is critical to their protection and restoration, said Drew Bartlett, deputy secretary for Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. These projects illustrate what can be accomplished when the state invests wisely to support and supplement department and water management district restoration programs. The objective of the project plan is to effectively address water quality and water quantity by supporting both urban and agricultural projects across the state in geographic regions of the state where springs occur in the natural landscape. The projects were selected based on pollutant reduction, water quantity conservation, cost effectiveness and available matching grant funding.

As consumers, it makes us feel good to support a local business, but most of us arent aware of the impact that choosing to purchase goods and services at an independent business has on our local economy. Studies have shown that throughout the United States, only about 33.6 percent of the revenue from national chains is reinvested into the community, which is very low compared to the 64.8 percent return from local businesses. A study in Austin, Texas found that $100 spent at a local bookstore produced $45 worth of local economic activity, and $100 at the chain store Borders brought back only $13. Local and independent restaurants make communities unique and give it character. Behind every counter is a local family who is taking their piece of the American dream. Unfortunately, according to one study a staggering 59 percent of these businesses close within the first three years. It takes local support from neighbors and other area businesses to help them thrive.

Not being interested in what celebrities think I should buy/eat/wear/read, mostly all I heard was a bunch of blah blah blah until someone said that in the 1990s Cher had a lifestyle catalog. Not that I care about Chers catalog, but its name caught my attention: Sanctuary. For the rest of the week I thought about that word and its meaning. Years ago when a local Episcopal church built its new sanctuary, the bishop gave me a tour and pointed out the red doors. He said traditionally and historically, many churches had red front doors. One reason is that red is symbolic of the blood of Jesus, our entry into salvation. Another reason, he said, is that historically red church doors were a sign to people fleeing persecution or seeking political asylum that they could find a safe place there. As long as they stayed behind church doors they couldnt be touched. The red door was a sign of sanctuary, of safety and refuge. Its said that during the Wars of the Roses (not to be confused with the War of the Roses movie with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, but the civil wars in medieval England) soldiers who were losing the battle would rush to the nearest church to hide out. Even enemies wouldnt violate the red door; no one was allowed to harm or capture anyone inside a church. Ever since the bishop told me about red church doors, every time I see a church with one I think of sanctuary and of being safe. Not all churches have red doors, but most churches have a sanctuary, whether its grand with high ceilings and rich wooden pews or a multi-purpose room with basketball hoops at either end. A church sanctuary is its worship space where the congregation meets with God. Most churches have a sanctuary, but are they true sanctuaries where people can find a safe place? Recently, my pastor read us the welcome message from another church: We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds. We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or like our pastor who cant carry a note in a bucket. Youre welcome here if youre just browsing, just woke up or just got out of jail. We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if youre having problems or youre down in the dumps or if you dont like organized religion, weve been there too. If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, youre welcome here.We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts and you! Thats a red door church. My church is a red door church. This past weekend my pastor spoke about the church being a community that demonstrates the love of God. He said, When you experience the radical acceptance of God, you give it to others, you cut people slack. Its about Jesus loving us so well that we love others. Not that we celebrate each others sin, but we welcome fellow sinners dearly loved by the Father because of grace, standing with and walking with each other as God changes us and makes us better. As a church, we dont love perfectly, but we do seek to love as we have been loved and forgive as we have been forgiven. Not every church is a safe place, but every church should be. Every church should be a sanctuary, a place where the only requirement to enter is a desire to come in. Maybe if more churches had red doors more people would come. Better yet, maybe if more churches offered true sanctuary, the color of the door wouldnt matter.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Every church needs a red door Nancy Kennedy Special to theTimesLetters to the editor It may be a bit early to think about Halloween but thats exactly what a group of volunteers is thinking about and they need your help. Historically, the Friends of the Panasoffkee Community Library focus their fall energy into sponsoring the communitys annual Halloween in the Park. The event provides the community and visitors with a fun-filled holiday experience complete with games, costume contests and other treats. But the event is no easy undertaking. It takes substantial planning and volunteers to pull Halloween in the Park together. In preparation of the October event, the group is sending out requests for able-bodied volunteers to help with some of the preparations. It may be early in the year for this, but organizers need to start planning now. And the big question for this years event is if enough volunteers can be found. The group will need volunteers to set up on Thursday, Oct. 30, and help out on Friday, Oct. 31, and Saturday, Nov. 1. If enough volunteers cant be located, the event may have to be called off. This is a great annual community event that deserves to flourish with local support and help. Persons interested in helping can email FPCLPresident@gmail.com or telephone the groups PAGES bookstore (located inside the library) at 569-1948 and leave a message. You can also attend the groups board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 5:30 p.m. at the Panasoffkee Community Library when a final decision will be made as to whether the group will proceed with Halloween in the Park or not. Donations can also be made to the group, for more information call 569-1948. Halloween in the Park is worth the investment. If youve got some time to contribute to the event, please let the group know. Its early but think about helping outGrace notes All it againThe democrats are at it again; making up lies to cover up their poor performance, and trying to pass the blame onto respectable republicans. The 2013-2014 house is not responsible for congress poor performance, rather the democratic senate leader, Harry Reid, carries that responsibility. The house has sent more than 200 bills to the senate, and Harry Reid refused to bring the bills to the senate floor where they can be discussed and voted on. Harry Reid has choked congress because he doesnt want any compromise bills to pass. If such a bill passes congress the president has to sign or veto it, and this puts the president in the decision making chair, one that he fills poorly. Also, a passed compromise bill or a vetoed bill denies the presidents executive power. Now, we see that the true democratic scheme is to circumvent congress and use executive orders to get what the progressive democrats want. Sorry progressive democrats, but the far left laundry list detailed by Ms. Grewe in the 9/7/2014 Sumter County Times will have to wait for another election. Vote to give the American people a republican congress so we can bring back prosperity, fair government, and a bright future for our country. Regards, Ronald Mancini BushnellHillary doesnt cut itI heard a reporter on TV asking people at random regarding Hillary Clinton for President in 2016. I could not believe the excitement people were expressing over the idea of having our first female President. Since when do we not want to elect someone for President because they are most qualified to lead our Nation and really cares about the direction the country is going? I do not know of one thing that qualified Hillary to be President of the USA. Her only accomplishment as Secretary of State was to allow our Ambassador and three other men to be tortured and murdered by Islamic extremists on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2012. It was well known that our Embassy was very much in danger since it had been attacked in June 2012 and the wall had been damaged and since all other nations feared the dangerous situation there and had pulled their Ambassadors out of Libya as well did the Red Cross. We still do not know what she or the President were doing on the long gruesome night our Embassy in Benghazi was being attacked. We do know that the next day the President was in Las Vegas campaigning. When questioned about the attack, Hillary was very agitated and asked what difference does it make what caused the attack? I think if we want to keep it from happening again, we need to know what caused it and how it could have been prevented. Also, if it had been your husband, son, brother or father murdered so needlessly, wouldnt you want to know all the details? One detail you would also want to know is why no one was allowed to go to their rescue during the seven hour attack. The families of those four men have a right to know all the details and this nation should want to know. There is such a fuss about not leaving our men behind in the saving of this one Bergdahl. What about those four men in Benghazi? Emily Daughtry Center Hill

Participation Requirements: $5/per person, under 18 free.

Many older adults have trouble chewing and swallowing their food. One of the most serious risks of swallowing problems is aspiration (when food or liquid gets into the airway or lungs). This can cause immediate choking and death if the airway is obstructed. Smaller amount of food or liquid in the lungs can lead to pneumonia. When a person has swallowing problems it is known as dysphagia. To assist individuals with chewing and swallowing try pureed food. Pureed food should be prepared to the right texture and be eye appealing. Pureed food should be ready to swallow, moist, cohesive (hold together) and spoon thick. It should not be sticky, lumpy, dry or runny. How do you prepare pureed foods? You can use a food processor or hand blenders. The key is not to add too much liquid and make sure the food is uniform in appearance and color with no chunks or pieces. Steps to prepare pureed food include: process foods in a food processor until they are fine in texture. Only if needed add small amounts of hot liquids for cooked foods or cold liquids for cold foods and process until smooth, pudding like texture. Seasonings or flavorings can be added to achieve the desired taste. Be sure to scrape down the sides and reprocess if needed to achieve the right texture. Serving food at the proper temperature is very important. When serving be sure to reheat cooked, pureed foods or chill cold, thickened foods to serving temperatures. Eye appeal plays a big role in ones eating experience. You want to serve pureed foods on an attractive plate. Make sure your food is recognizable. You can also use food molds if you chose to mold the food or just shape the food so its not mixed together with other foods on the plate. You can use pureed garnishes to improve presentation and acceptability. This will make food more recognizable and the overall eating experience more pleasant. Try to avoid mixing pureed foods together because this will produce an unappetizing color, plus you may not be able to recognize the food and taste will not be good. One of the key challenges to pureed foods is enhancing textures. What is food texture? Food texture is those properties of a food that are sensed by touch in the mouth and with the hands. Food can be soft, hard, mushy, crunchy, smooth or lumpy. Texture is important to the enjoyment and acceptability of foods. A soggy sandwich or mushy pears are not acceptable or enjoyable. Mashed potatoes, cooked cereal, pudding and yogurt are the desired textures you want to acquire in puree foods. UF/IFAS Extension, faculty members have trained staff at the Sumter County Farmers Market Restaurant and SCARC to modify foods for individuals that request of need these services. For more information on Food Modification contact your local UF/IFAS Extension office or in Sumter County email mmaddox@ufl.edu for Martha Maddox, CEA IV, FCS for information.

County Extension offers fall Master Gardener classes When Lindsay Partridge won the election to serve as the national president for the Alpha Beta Gamma (ABG) International Business Honor Society, her first reaction was total relief. I campaigned against five other people for the position, Partridge, a junior business major at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, said. After the first vote, I was tied with another girl. Another vote was taken but the results werent announced until the awards dinner. Partridge, a resident of Bushnell, campaigned and gave a speech in order to run for the national presidents seat during the 2014 Alpha Beta Gamma National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas. She was elected based on voting from all of the chapters in attendance. Her plans during her presidency include focusing on recruitment and involvement in ABG. As national president she is required to attend all video meetings, write an essay for the honors journal, compose a biography for ABGs website, and do a presentation on etiquette in social media. Since becoming a part of the organization, I feel I have truly grown both personally and professionally from my experiences with ABG, and I want to encourage other students as much as possible to pursue the same opportunities, Partridge said. Partridge is looking forward to having the opportunity to work with people across the country and seeing how decisions made by the national officers positively affect all ABG members and the members of their communities. The ABG national officers meet six times a year and have met twice already. The next meeting will take place in the fall. Two other ABAC students were also named as 2014 national officers. Colleen Leu, a business major from Chula, serves as the National Marketing Director, and Melody Harper, a business major from Pelham, holds the office of National Secretary. Partridge chose to attend ABAC because she initially wanted to major in agriculture. Bushnell resident takes leadership role at ag college Lindsay Partridge FWC Black bear curriculum teaches kids about wildlife Giving schoolchildren a chance to learn all about Florida black bears is a great way to teach them about wildlife, while sharpening their skills in reading, math, science and problem solving. For that reason, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has updated its Florida Black Bear Curriculum, and put it online for the first time at BlackBearInfo.com. The revised Florida Black Bear Curriculum is free, easy for teachers to use, and meets the new Florida Standards for educational curricula. The curriculum offers 10 lessons on topics such as The Black Bear Necessities and Oh Where, Oh Where is the Florida Black Bear? and includes hands-on activities such as mapping and role-playing. There are also videos for students to watch such as the FWCs Living with Florida Black Bears. The Florida Black Bear Curriculum takes childrens curiosity about black bears into the classroom, where learning about black bears can improve kids skills in basics like reading, math, science and problem solving, said Sarah Barrett with the FWCs black bear management program. Whenever FWC staff talks to kids about Florida black bears, the response is overwhelmingly positive because kids are eager to learn and ask great questions about bears. With more encounters today between people and bears in Florida than in the recent past, it is increasingly important for children to learn about the states bear population. The Florida Black Bear Curriculum was designed for children in grades 3-8 and has been in use since 1999, when it was created as a joint project of the FWC and Defenders of Wildlife. Florida teachers who register on the Florida Black Bear Curriculum website can gain access to additional information, particularly in regard to how the material fits the Florida Standards. But anyone is welcome to go to BlackBearInfo.com and take advantage of the educational material there. Go to BlackBearInfo.com to take advantage of the educational material that is presented there.
