In his continuing commitment to reduce drug-related crimes in Sumter County, Sheriff Bill Farmer again launched a drug sweep through the county last week resulting in the arrest of more than 20 suspects. Called Operation Pressure Point, the three-month investigation has resulted in the arrest of more than two dozen people. Last weeks bust is one of a series of drug stings that the sheriffs office has conducted during the past several years. With names like Operation Spring Sting, Operation Street Sweeper, Jingle Bars and Operation Summer Sweep Farmer continues with his pledge to sweep drugs from the streets of Sumter County. Those arrested in the sting operation were: Joshua Ray Leonard, 27, sale and possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell or deliver, keeping a place for using or selling a controlled substance, sale and possession of Established in 1881 50 CentsTIMES INSIDE INSIDESUMTER COUNTY Drug sweep nets local arrests Thursday, August 28, 2014Volume 128 Number 35 E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.com QUICK CLICK BOBREICHMAN Editor Onofre Perea gets a little help down from Sumter sheriffs Dep. Matt Perry. Perea and T.J. Jackson (next in line to climb down) are shown at the door of the L150 Armored Personnel Carrier used by the department for high risk situations. The Kids N Cops events were held for children and teens in the Bushnell, Center Hill and Royal, communities, as well as the Sumter County Youth Center. The Sumter County Sheriffs Office, under the leadership of Lt. Bobby Caruthers and Lt. Pat Breeden, coordinate the events. The special days allow the children to get know law enforcement officers on a more personal level and to learn about what they do. Along with bringing gear, transportation and equipment for a show and tell, staff hosts a barbecue and fun and games. See Page 12. Friday night, the Wildwood High varsity football team gets to face its worst nightmare. It is called South Sumter High. The young inexperienced Wildcats are coming off a 2-9 season and come in with a new head coach, Beau Austin. Their opponent, whom they will face at 7:30 p.m. at Raiders Field, was 12-1 last year and has been undefeated in the regular season for the past two years. They are currently ranked number two in a state poll. Wildwood was beaten 48-7 Friday night by Bronson High in a Kickoff Classic. South Sumters Classic against Dunnellon was cancelled due to lightning. South Sumter might score 48 points in the first half although South Sumter coach Inman Sherman will likely keep the score down. After Wildwood, South Sumter is likely to go off and collect another district title and show other teams the joys of the running clocks on the way to the playoffs. Anyway, the Wildcats will face their toughest opponent of the year and some how try to gain confidence and poise to face the Pierson Taylors and Villages later on this season. Austin knows what his team faces Friday. We look forward to South Sherman, said Austin. We have a lot of respect for Coach Sherman and the rest of his staff. They are very disciplined. My kids need to be able to compete at that high level and see where they stand. That will tell them the areas where they need to get better.Bronson 48, Wildwood 7Wildwood quarterback Torre Parker came up with the teams lone highlight. He scrambled for a 33-yard touchdown with 1:25 left in the game. Austin knows he is fortunate to have Parker. Hes a great kid, Austin said. He wants nothing more than to bring success back to this program. Our offensive line grew together. They did some really good things that allowed our kids to get out in space. We have a lot of athletes that we like to get out See ARREST Page 3 Breton Bryant CrainDaily Dandridge Danforth Jr.Easterling Gaffney Gough Hartwell Houck J. Leonard R.

PAGEA2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, AUGUST28, 2014 ADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISECall Mike793-2161 ADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISECall Mike793-2161 Maddox. Ive worked with Warren about 11 years and he was always wonderful to work with. He was intelligent, he understood the issues. He was certainly a friend of the staff here and he was so dedicated to the city. It seemed like everything that he did was in the best interest of the city. Hickle said Maddox was a supporter of almost all the major improvements that have taken place in the city, from the bike paths and new downtown park to the elevated storage tank and sewer system. He was always in favor of improvements that the city could make to benefit the citizens, Hickle said. Hes really going to be missed by all of us. City zoning director Denis Lee said Maddox had a lot of historical knowledge about Bushnell and she often joked with him about writing a book about it. Maddox was 67 and born to the late Warren V. and Elizabeth Hubbard Maddox. Graduating South Sumter High in 1965, he went on to Troy State University where he received a bachelor of science degree and then served four years in U.S Air Force, including a tour of Viet Nam. He worked for the state for 26 years with the Sumter County Health Department and as the environmental health supervisor. Warren convinced me to transfer down here to go to work, said Raleigh Shrewsbury, environmental manager for the Florida Department of Health in Sumter County. Maddox and Shrewsbury had working together in Marion County, before Maddox took the job in Sumter. That was back in 1984 and the two of them spent the next 16 years serving in Sumter County, until Maddox retired. .He was a good boss, he was a kind and generous man who was always straightforward and was always honest, Shrewsbury said, noting that Maddox had a high degree of integrity and enjoyed life and intelligent conversation. He was a dedicated servant, in both his service to the state and county as an employee and then to the city through his civic work on the council. We were married 22 years, we just had a wonderful time together, said Mrs. Maddox. He was a fine husband and companion and friend. They spent time travelling from road trips, to cruises and trips to Europe, she said. Probably the mose exotic was Asia, with Maddox returning to the place he served in Vietnam. They sailed the Virgin Islands and spent time in state parks. She said they tried to travel two or three times a year, though not all of those were big trips. He loved Bushnell, he had been here all of a his life, she said, noting that he worked to do things that would benefit the town. They met years ago, when she was a supervisor for the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services (HRS) in Wildwood and hired Maddox. I was his boss for a short time, she said with a laugh, noting that shes the one who hired him. She moved away and after she was widowed, she and Maddox ended up getting together. He was a pilot and had his own plane, she said, noting she was certain flying in a small plane was something she would never do. But he convinced her to and they would do things like fly to Cedar Key for lunch and then return home. It was so much fun. They enjoyed sitting on the Marsh home front porch too. The front porch faces the judicial area and the house belongs to Maddoxs cousins. It was the home of the late Burton Marsh (a longtime county clerk). We would sit on that porch and talk for hours, she said, noting that you could sit there and absorb Bushnell.For obituary and service information for Warren Maddox, see the listing inside this edition.

It began when my neighbor, Sandy, had asked me to feed her dogs, let them outside in the fenced-in yard during the day and put them in their kennels for the night while she was out of town. Any idiot can do that, I thought. Except one day I forgot the part about letting them outside and only remembered later when I discovered one of the dogs had eaten Sandys couch that was on the porch. He didnt eat all of it he left the springs. Then I noticed one of the dogs had eaten the entire can of fish food that was on the table. I was so frazzled that when I left Sandys house, I closed the locked front door with the door key lying safely on the kitchen counter and Sandy not due home for another week. With mental images of dogs exploding bladders, I took to the streets, roaming the neighborhood crying, Marie! Marie! as I tried to find the only other person I knew had a key to Sandys house. (I didnt know where Marie lived.) Also that week I put a carton of ice cream in the pantry and amassed a hefty herd of ants. While writing a check at the bank, I bit the end of my pen and got a mouthful of ink blue teeth, blue lips, blue gums, blue tongue, blue fingers, blue smears on my white shorts. Sadly, that wasnt the first time that had ever happened to me. The first time was during an economics final in high school. I now use only black ink pens. That same week I accidentally colored my youngest daughters hair Day-Glo orange. She was into a grunge-punk phase then and actually loved it, mostly because she could tell horrified teachers, My mom did this to me! That week my car broke down. Two magazines I regularly wrote for folded and one of my books went out of print (which means the publisher doesnt think a book is good enough to print more copies). At the end of that week, as I sat down to figure out my income taxes, for 10 glorious minutes I thought we would actually get a refund for the first time in seven years. However, as my husband checked my math he found Id made a $10,000 error that pushed us into another tax bracket. Suddenly, our $26 refund morphed before our eyes into a $1,000 debt to the IRS. Other bad stuff happened that week too, but the $1,000 to the IRS was the final blow. I had had enough. I had reached my breaking point and did the only thing left that I could do I laughed. I fell to the floor and laughed and laughed and laughed. For a moment I thought I may have lost my sanity, but as I caught my breath, I realized I had actually found it. Ive used this quote from theologian Oswald Chambers many times: The saint is hilarious when crushed by difficulties, because the thing is so ludicrously impossible to anyone but God. Sometimes theres nothing left to do but laugh. Not that laughing changes circumstances. We still owed the IRS $1,000. But I think that kind of laughter is a way of surrendering, of saying to God, Youre right, God. Im not you. I dont control the universe. This is beyond me, and I cant fix my life. Another theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr, said, Humor is a prelude to faith and laughter is the beginning of prayer. When my life falls apart around me, when my teeth are blue and my kids hair is orange, when my neighbors dog eats her couch because of me, when life hurls disappointments and impossibilities fast and furiously, when my brain hurts and my heart is fearful and overwhelmed, I line my human frailties up against Gods awesome majesty and power and might and his kindness and hear his Father-heart chuckling because he is God and able to do so much more than I can ever ask or hope for or even imagine, thats when I laugh. I laugh because I need and have a Savior. My laughter is my prelude to faith and the beginning of prayer. Its my worship. Lots of people laugh, and lots laugh until they cry. But I believe that those who know the loving hand of God are the only ones who can cry until they laugh.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace. She can be reached at 352-564-2927 or via email at nkennedy@chronicleonline.com. Go ahead and laugh Nancy Kennedy Special to theTimesLetters to the editor What an unusual election year this is here in Sumter County. When voters went to the polls Tuesday, they didnt have to worry about making a final decision between local candidates seeking election. There werent any local candidates to select from in any county government or School Board races. As a matter of fact, the only local candidate appearing on the ballot was Mary Hatcher, a Bushnell candidate for the seat of judge in the 5th Judicial Circuit. The same lack of local candidates will be true when the general election rolls around in November. In the two County Commission districts up for election this year, neither incumbent commissioner is being challenged for their seat. District 4 County Commissioner Garry Breeden has no opposition and neither does District 2 County Commission Doug Gilpin. The same holds true for the School Board. District 1 School Board Member Haydn L. Evans, The Villages, and District 5 Board member Kathie L. Joiner, Bushnell, are unopposed. Even though an election wont decide it, a newcomer does join the School Board. David A. Williams, Oxford is the new District 3 representative. He automatically takes the seat without opposition. Its a very unusual election year and hopefully the lack of candidate participation can all be attributed to nothing more than satisfied residents who are pleased with their current representatives and dont want them changed. Wheres the election?Grace notes Scouts seek helpersDuring Girl Scouts of West Central Floridas (GSWCF) peak registration timewhich is happening now (back-toschool)it has had as many as 1,300 girls on a waiting list due to a shortage of volunteers. In an effort to serve as many girls as possible, GSWCF is asking local adults to step forward as volunteers to serve as positive role models for girls. Specifically, GSWCF is in greatest need of troop leaders. These volunteers work with a group of girls throughout the year and mentor them as they make new friends and develop skills that will last a lifetime; essentially, they are the core of many girls experiences in Girl Scouting. At least two adult troop leaders are needed for a Girl Scout troop to form. In addition to troop leaders, GSWCF is seeking volunteers to fill a variety of other positions. VGSWCF works in close partnership with its volunteers to deliver the information and support needed to help girls unleash their potential. As part of its commitment, GSWCF offers a flexible schedule of in-person and online trainings for all volunteers, assisting them in developing their skills and learning about the Girl Scout program. No matter the position, Girl Scout volunteers gain valuable job experience, hone leadership skills, participate in their community, and ultimately empower and inspire girls. Need more convincing? The results of a national poll conducted this summer with more than 3,500 volunteers and parents of Girl Scouts in the K age range showcase Girl Scouts many volunteer benefits: 94 percent of volunteers have made new friends, 88 percent believe their life is better because they volunteer with Girl Scouts, and twothirds believe their volunteer experience has helped them professionally. Ninety-five percent of Girl Scout volunteers are happy knowing they are making girls lives better. For more information or to join Girl Scouts today, visit www.gswcf.org or call (800) 8814475. Girl Scouts of West Central FloridaHonoring lineworkersAugust 26 was designated Lineworkers Appreciation Day in Florida. Electric utilities across the state will be honoring the men and women across Florida that work tirelessly in varying conditions to make sure our lights stay on. As one of the smallest public power electric utilities in the State of Florida but one of the most reliable the City is proud of our lineman! In 2012, the Florida House of Representatives introduced a resolution honoring the thousands of men and women risking their lives every day ensuring the reliable delivery of electricity throughout the state. The resolution, sponsored by Rep. Seth McKeel (RLakeland) designated August 26, 2012, as Lineworker Appreciation Day in the State of Florida. This date holds particular significance for Lakeland resident Tracy Moore, whose husband, Marc, a lineworker for Lakeland Electric, died tragically on August 26, 2002. Electric utilities across Florida continue to recognize August 26 every year as Lineworker Appreciation Day. City of Bushnell linemen were treated to a delicious steak luncheon prepared by Bushnell City Manager Bruce Hickle. The City appreciates how hard our linemen work to ensure reliable electric service to the community, and want to say thank you on behalf of our City Council, staff and citizens of Bushnell for their dedication to keeping the lights on. Barry Moline, executive director of the Florida Municipal Electric Association, noted the daily demands endured by lineworkers. When you stop and consider the complexity of the nations power grid, he explained, the essential role of the lineworker comes into sharper focus. As a group, theyre responsible for maintaining the nations more than 5 million miles of power lines in all kinds of weather and hazards and do so 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. We appreciate what they do for us every single day, rain or shine. The Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) represents the unified interests of 34 public power communities across the state, which provides electricity to more than 3 million of Floridas residential and business consumers.

PAGEA8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, AUGUST28, 2014 FROM THE GROUND UP Question:I have white powder looking splotches on the leaves of my Mexican Petunia. What is it?Answer:If it looks similar to powdered sugar it is probably powdery mildew. Too much shade and humidity, poor air circulation or moisture from irrigation at night can bring on powdery mildew. I would recommend spraying with an organic fungicide such as Neem Oil. Spray in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler to avoid damage from leaf burn. For positive identification, I would recommend bringing a sample to one of our plant clinics. A picture of the general location of the plant can also help with diagnosis. Question:I have recently moved to Florida. One of my favorite plants is clematis. Will it grow in Florida?Answer:Yes, there are varieties of clematis that are native to Florida. Netleaf Leather Flower (Clematis reticulata) displays small but attractive purple or red urn shaped flowers. It grows well in north and central Florida and vines can reach 10 feet. It prefers sun to partial shade and is drought tolerant. Question:Is it time to start a winter vegetable garden?Answer:It seems way too hot to even begin thinking about the fall garden, but midAugust is the time to start planting beans, corn, cucumbers, eggplants, peppers, yellow squash, tomatoes and zucchini. And, if you start your own plants from seeds, then youll need to get started now. As a first step, dont forget to spend a little time enriching your soil with compost for best results.

Floridastateparks.org/DadebattlefieldDade Battlefield Historic State ParkDade Battlefield, 7200 C.R. 603, Bushnell This week I have a challenge for each of you to start including fresh local vegetables in your diet and getting healthy! Americans should consume at least 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day. Vegetables help promote overall good health from the important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber they contain. Choose the right vegetables to help you get the nutrients your body needs every day. Local produce farmers and Farmers markets are great places to buy fresh vegetables. You can shop locally, buy farm-fresh, locally grown vegetables that are in season at a reasonable price. You also know where their food comes from. Many of the farmers markets and produce farmers are taking part in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Fussell Farmers recently starting participating in SNAP at their farm in Webster and the Sumter County Farmers Market in Webster will start participating in SNAP and taking EBT cards on Monday, Sept. 8. Individuals will be able to use their EBT cards to get tokens to purchase fresh produce from the participating vendors at the Sumter County Farmers Market. Individual will take their EBT card to the main market office requesting a dollar amount in tokens to be used to buy fresh produce. If individuals have tokens left over they can save them until the next Monday to spend. Also change will not be issued for tokens. Tokens will be exchanged for exact dollar amount in produce or product. Individuals can use these tokens to purchase items allowed by their SNAP benefits if these items are sold at the market. Items you can purchase with and EBT card: fruit and vegetables, foods for the household to eat, such as: breads and cereals, meats, fish and poultry; and dairy products. They can also purchase seeds and plants to produce food for the household to eat. Items you cannot use SNAP benefits to buy include: Beer, wine, liquor, cigarettes or tobacco, any nonfood items, such as pet foods, soaps, paper products, diapers, and household supplies, vitamins and medicines, food that will be eaten in the store and hot foods. Two ribbon cutting ceremonies will be held at 10 a.m. at the Sumter County Farmers Market for the two programs the Market have partnered with UF/IFAS Extension and Sumter County Family and Consumer Science Agent, Martha Maddox on. The programs are: the EBT program for the Farmers Market and Dysphagia/swallowing problems with the Farmers Market Restaurant. You can email Maddox at mmaddox@ufl.edu for more information on either of these programs. Martha Maddox UF/IFAS Extension Netleaf Leather Flower (Clematis reticulata) displays small but attractive purple or red urn shaped flowers.

The provisions of this section are severable and if any clause, sentence, paragraph or section of this measure, or an application thereof, is adjudged invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction other provisions shall continue to be in effect to the fullest extent possible. No. 3 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 10, 11 (Legislature) Ballot Title: Prospective Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies Ballot Summary: Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution requiring the Governor to prospectively fill vacancies in a judicial office to which election for retention applies resulting from the justices or judges reaching the mandatory retirement age or failure to qualify for a retention election; and allowing prospective appointments if a justice or judge is not retained at an election. Currently, the Governor may not fill an expected vacancy until the current justices or judges term expires. Full Text: ARTICLE V JUDICIARY SECTION 10. Retention; election and terms. (a) Any justice or judge may qualify for retention by a vote of the electors in the general election next preceding the expiration of the justices or judges term in the manner prescribed by law. When If a justice or judge is ineligible for retention or fails to qualify for retention, a prospective vacancy is deemed to occur at the conclusion of the qualifying period for retention for the purpose of appointing a successor justice or judge, and a vacancy shall exist in that office upon the expiration of the term being served by the justice or judge. When a justice or judge so qualifies, the ballot shall read substantially as follows: Shall Justice (or Judge) ...(name of justice or judge)... of the ...(name of the court)... be retained in office? If a majority of the qualified electors voting within the territorial jurisdiction of the court vote to retain, the justice or judge shall be retained for a term of six years. The term of the justice or judge retained shall commence on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January following the general election. If a majority of the qualified electors voting within the territorial jurisdiction of the court vote to not retain, a prospective vacancy is deemed to occur immediately following the general election for the purpose of appointing a successor justice or judge, and a vacancy shall exist in that office upon the expiration of the term being served by the justice or judge. (b)(1) The election of circuit judges shall be preserved notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) unless a majority of those voting in the jurisdiction of that circuit approves a local option to select circuit judges by merit selection and retention rather than by election. The election of circuit judges shall be by a vote of the qualified electors within the territorial jurisdiction of the court. (2) The election of county court judges shall be preserved notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) unless a majority of those voting in the jurisdiction of that county approves a local option to select county judges by merit selection and retention rather than by election. The election of county court judges shall be by a vote of the qualified electors within the territorial jurisdiction of the court. (3)a. A vote to exercise a local option to select circuit court judges and county court judges by merit selection and retention rather than by election shall be held in each circuit and county at the general election in the year 2000. If a vote to exercise this local option fails in a vote of the electors, such option shall not again be put to a vote of the electors of that jurisdiction until the expiration of at least two years. b. After the year 2000, a circuit may initiate the local option for merit selection and retention or the election of circuit judges, whichever is applicable, by filing with the custodian of state records a petition signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the circuit in the last preceding election in which presidential electors were chosen. c. After the year 2000, a county may initiate the local option for merit selection and retention or the election of county court judges, whichever is applicable, by filing with the supervisor of elections a petition signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the county in the last preceding election in which presidential electors were chosen. The terms of circuit judges and judges of county courts shall be for six years. SECTION 11. Vacancies. (a) (1) Whenever a vacancy occurs in a judicial office to which election for retention applies, the governor shall fill the vacancy by appointing for a term ending on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of the year following the next general election occurring at least one year after the date of appointment, one of not fewer than three persons nor more than six persons nominated by the appropriate judicial nominating commission. (2) Whenever a prospective vacancy occurs in a judicial office for which election for retention applies, the governor shall fill the prospective vacancy by appointing a justice or judge from among at least three persons but not more than six persons nominated by the appropriate judicial nominating commission. The term of the appointment commences upon the expiration of the term of the office being vacated and ends on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of the year following the next general election. (b) The governor shall fill each vacancy on a circuit court or on a county court, wherein the judges are elected by a majority vote of the electors, by appointing for a term ending on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of the year following the next primary and general election occurring at least one year after the date of appointment, one of not fewer than three persons nor more than six persons nominated by the appropriate judicial nominating commission. An election shall be held to fill that judicial office for the term of the office beginning at the end of the appointed term. (c) The nominations shall be made within thirty days from the occurrence of a vacancy or prospective vacancy unless the period is extended by the governor for a time not to exceed thirty days. The governor shall make the appointment within sixty days after the nominations have been certified to the governor. (d) There shall be a separate judicial nominating commission as provided by general law for the supreme court, each district court of appeal, and each judicial circuit for all trial courts within the circuit. Uniform rules of procedure shall be established by the judicial nominating commissions at each level of the court system. Such rules, or any part thereof, may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the legislature, or by the supreme court, five justices concurring. Except for deliberations of the judicial nominating commissions, the proceedings of the commissions and their records shall be open to the public.

The pitter patter of little feet are not always an occasion to celebrate. With so many animals being born and not enough homes for them all, a tragic ending lies ahead for them. Too many dogs. Too many cats. And even too many horses. So many are being euthanized. Many more suffer life on the streets. They are uncared for and unloved. They are the strays, the homeless, and the abandoned animals that have no place to call home. And yet, people continue to breed animals. While thousands of animals are euthanized in this county and across the country, and thousands more homeless animals roam the streets, people continue to let their animals breed! Why? The lucky ones are rescued from kill facilities and off the streets by many humane organizations. They are taken in, cared for, given medical care, and adopted to loving families. And while there are many lucky ones, still hundreds of thousands are not so lucky. Our local Humane Society/SPCA is the only safe haven in our county where an animal can stay until he or she finds a forever home. There are no time limits to worry about; they are safe, cared for and loved until they are adopted. Unfortunately there is not enough room for every homeless animal, and until the indiscriminate breeding stops, there will never be enough safe havens anywhere. Our Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County does a fantastic job. The animals are housed on their property in Lake Panasoffkee where they have room to run and play. They are dedicated to finding good homes for the animals in their care, and to rescuing as many as possible. But they need our help. They need monetary donations for food and medical care. They need donations of dog and cat food. They need our support! We citizens need to take responsibility. It is an ethical and moral outrage that perfectly good animals are euthanized when there is such a simple solution! We can end thousands of deaths in this county by spaying and neutering our animals. Only when we put an end to the cycle of so many litters of animals being born will we end the homeless animal problems that plague this county. Stop the breeding end the killingCritter chatter Linda Graves Florida DART Poquito is a five-year-old male Chihuahua. Poquito gets along well with other dogs and loves to play outside. Meet Poquito and all the other great adoptable animals here at the Humane Society. The kennels are at 994 C.R. 529A, Lake Panasoffkee.

Austin, 34, is hoping he can make people comfortable with his team. I just hope to bring back the sense of community and the sense of pride, Austin said. The community loves the program. They want to see them win. We are going to put the best people on the field. I hope the people are proud of the team again. I learned from some of the best coaches in Florida how to build the program the right way. We want to instill discipline, strength of character. Hopefully, we can build a program that will stand the test of time. The wins will come if you do it the right way. He takes over a team that had a 2-9 mark in 2013.

SUMTERCOUNTYTIMESThursday, August 28, 2014 G13 FOOTBALL G4Thursday, August 28, 2014SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES FOOTBALL Donell James. 31 Dylan Devine, 12 Dylan Sapp, 19 Edimer Lopez, 22 Efrain Ceballos, 58 Garrett Shiflet, 62 Isaac Fields, 6 Isiah Patterson, 36 Israel Andrade, 77 J. T.Taylor, 2 Jalon Taylor, 34 James Daniel, 72 record and would love to have a similar program with all the success that goes with it. South Sumter consistently shows teams that a small school can produce winning football. The Raiders have been under the head coaching of Sherman since 1984. During that period, South Sumter High has had a record of 245-105 in that time. That includes 15 district titles, five regional titles and a second place finish in the Class 2A state one year. The team lost in the state finals in 2005 to Hollywood Chaminade and the team is a regular in the Class 4A Top 10 polls. South Sumter is a marvel of success. Though he would defer credit to others, much of the reason for the success goes back to Sherman, a modest man. Sherman, 58, was an Army brat.His family settled in London, Kentucky. He played college football at Eastern Kentucky University. Sherman moved down in 1984 and has been in Bushnell ever since. I think we have established a consistent tradition,said Sherman. The consistency in coaching has been established. Our kids work very hard. Summer conditioning is a major reason for the Raiders success. Traditionally, we start our summer program just after July 4,Sherman said. We run it 6 to 8:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday. We require our players to attend 18 to 20 workouts. I think our conditioning this summer has been extremely important to our success. Our attendance rate is over 90 percent. Sherman said not many students transfer into the area but many of his players have excellent preparation for prep football. John Kinley, the South Sumter Middle School football coach, has been instrumental in preparing these players to come up and play football, Sherman said. We went to a no-huddle because someone else, Orlando Lake Highland Prep, was doing that to us,said Sherman. We started using it in 2000. We never huddle in practice. Of course, the no-huddle offense isnt a surprise to the teams who scout or play the Raiders. It probably is dependent on who we are playing,Sherman said. The successful schools know they have to get ready to defend it. The key goes right back to practice. The teams have a hard time adjusting when the other team is already on the line of scrimmage. We try to keep people from huddling. Another factor is that playing football at South Sumter has become family traditions in many local families. I think it is a traditional matter,Sherman said. For most of these kids their parents or grandparents played here. They are expected to carry on the tradition. Sherman also thinks that being in a small town helps the winning tradition. There arent many distractions in a community like Bushnell and a lot of players want to be football heroes. Being in a small town is where I prefer to be, he said. They dont have the distractions they do in bigger areas. The dads, grandfathers and uncles expect them to carry on the tradition. We have a traditional type family atmosphere. Most of our coaches have been there for at least 10 years. We have had a couple of coaches who have gone on to become head coaches. Most of our coaches like myself prefer to live in a small town. When a team is likely to win its district every year and have a playoff run, its easy to understand why Bushnell area kids line up to sweat, hit and try to become football heroes. Try he may but Sherman has to take plenty of credit for the fact that South Sumter High football means winning football to lots of people. This years Raiders will be interesting to watch as they try to maintain that tradition using a different cast of characters.

difficult to tackle. Hes like Marshall Faulk. He has great ability to change directions. Junior J.T. Taylor, 5-10, 180 pounds, can simply race past the other defense. Taylor is very explosive, probably the fastest player on the team, the coach said. At fullback is Bokieyon Rice, a 5-11, 230pound sophomore. He played every game last year as fullback. Sophomore Deon Williams, 6-foot, 190 pounds can run the ball and play the slot receiver. His coach described him as multi talented. Sophomore Bryce Williams is a 5-11, 150pound wide receiver. Sherman said that Kenny Robinson, a 5-9, 155-pound sophomore is a very fast wide receiver. He added the coaches are very happy with him. There are two tight ends that Sherman describes as being big and strong with great springs and summers. They are Cody Henderson, a 6-2, 200-pound senior, and Andrew Hamilton, a 6-1, 226pound junior. Additionally, Henderson has developed into a team leader. Normally, Sherman tells you the strength of the team is somewhere on defense. Not this year. The strength of the team is the offensive line, Sherman said. The key may be found in center Caleb Simmons, a 5-11, 215-pound senior. He is a threeyear starter. He hasnt missed a game in three years. He is really vital as the senior captain. Sherman said the guards are really strong and intense. They are 6foot, 227-pound senior Kiel Yurich and 6-4, 265pound senior James Daniel. We are extremely dependent on them because of their strength and toughness, said Sherman. Its a good year to be a running back. This is a good time to be a back on this team. They are going to move some people. When people think of lineman, they often think they need to add weight. Sherman said Colton Skipper, a 6-3, 290-pound senior tackle, lost 30 pounds and it has helped him. It made him a better player, the coach said. Hes stronger, faster than hes ever been. Hes a potential college prospect. Newcomer Brady Adams (6-2, 250-pound senior tackle) has worked his way into the starting lineup, Sherman said. Our coaches love his work ethic. His determination is really cool. Those who follow Raider football wont be shocked that Wes Moir, a 6-5, 165-pound senior will be back as kicker and punter. Sherman said he has great grades, a 4.0 or better, and may be kicking for some college next year. Anchoring the 3-5 defense is a nose guard who is a college prospect. Junior Montel Presley, 5-11, 295 pounds is already drawing attention from several schools. The coach said he is extremely strong. Defensive end Carson Wells, a 6-2, 220-pound sophomore. He continues to grow and moved from linebacker to lineman. He can pass and rush well. DE Devin Pappinheim, a 6-6, 225-pound senior, is committed to Appalachian State. The linebackers are Bryce Hatcher, a 6-2, 232-pound senior, Brady Barnes, a 5-11, 175pound sophomore and Junior Ceballos, a 5-10, 155-pound sophomore. Barnes is new. A freshman competing for time is Deonte Grant, 5-10, 172 pounds. Sherman said he is very impressive. The coach said that free safety Deric Dixon, is tall and lanky, and is going to grow into a great player. Hes young. Hes a 5-11, 170-pound sophomore. Strong safety junior Matt Williams, 5-5, 155 pounds, is a returner. B.J. Hudson, a 5-11, 180pound junior is real green. Athleticism is still there. His coach said he has plenty of ability. Senior cornerback Myles Frazier has a lot of speed and a lot of experience. Sherman said it is a really difficult position. Sherman said that sophomore Jalon Taylor, a 5-7, 170-pounder, is starting to dominate at the other corner. He pays attention to details. Its a good district, Sherman said of 5A-6. Pasco and Zephyrhills, Nature Coast can all beat you if they dont take them seriously. We think we can be very good, the coach said. We have issues to work out. Dunnellon played South Sumter Aug. 21 in the Kickoff Classic. South Sumter will host Wildwood in the opening game Friday, Aug. 29. The Raiders will hit the road to face Crystal River there on Sept. 5.

W ildwood was 2-9 last year under Jimbo Hale. Austin came over from South Lake High and said he wants to build character and discipline in the 2014 Wildcats. Wildwood has 25 players on the young team and that means that many of them will play both offense and defense. The Wildcat offense will be spread single wing with an I variation. Austin said his team will throw 60 percent of the time. The Wildcats will run a short shotgun set. The defense will play a 4-2-5 or 43 defense. The Wildcats will face area power South Sumter Friday, Aug. 29 in Bushnell to start off the season. South Sumter was 12-1 last year. Torre Parker will start at quarterback. He is a senior. He is 5-9, 180. He played last year but he didnt pass much. Colleges are already showing an interest in him. Austin said Georgia Southern and several schools in Ohio expressed interest in him. We are going to open up the passing game with him, Austin said. He will be given the opportunity to throw it around. Parker has a near 4.0 grade point average and will play free safety as well. Austin calls his top two running backs thunder and lightning. The thunder is Brian Davis, a junior, 5-10, 200. The lightning is C.J. Williams, 5-8, 170, a sophomore. They will split time and different roles, said the coach. Davis is a good downhill runner. He is more of a fullback. C.J. is a shifty zone runner. We use a slot. Charles Williams will be used there. He is 5-6, 140 pounds. He is a junior, real quick, great hands and a good head. Derione Shine, a sophomore, 57, 160, real explosive, great hands, real physical will see plenty of action. Playing wingback or tight end will be Brady Mertz, a sophomore, 6-3, 160, very physical with great hands, His coach said he is very intelligent. A newcomer is senior Robert Taylor, 6-3, 150. The coach said Taylor is pretty quick with great hands. He never played football until his friends talked him into it. The coach expects him to be a great asset. The tight end, Ty St. Amant, is a sophomore. 6-1, 210. The coach said he is very physical, runs great routes and is a great leader. A key player to watch on defense will be hard to miss. He is senior Jacquese Owens and he stands 6foot-7 and weighs 285 pounds. He will be possibly an offensive and defensive tackle or end. He has great feet, a great motor, said Austin. He has made a commitment here. He has had personality issues but has done everything we asked. Some colleges have shone an interest in him. According to Austin, another one to watch is a freshman center. Dallas Clark is 5-11 and weighs 260 pounds. He has a great work ethic, said the coach. He is very coachable. Really good hands. He never fluffs a snap. He has taken on a leadership role as ninth grader. Carl Griffin, a 5-9, 180 senior right guard, is a tough-nosed kid, Austin said.

difficult to tackle. Hes like Marshall Faulk. He has great ability to change directions. Junior J.T. Taylor, 5-10, 180 pounds, can simply race past the other defense. Taylor is very explosive, probably the fastest player on the team, the coach said. At fullback is Bokieyon Rice, a 5-11, 230pound sophomore. He played every game last year as fullback. Sophomore Deon Williams, 6-foot, 190 pounds can run the ball and play the slot receiver. His coach described him as multi talented. Sophomore Bryce Williams is a 5-11, 150pound wide receiver. Sherman said that Kenny Robinson, a 5-9, 155-pound sophomore is a very fast wide receiver. He added the coaches are very happy with him. There are two tight ends that Sherman describes as being big and strong with great springs and summers. They are Cody Henderson, a 6-2, 200-pound senior, and Andrew Hamilton, a 6-1, 226pound junior. Additionally, Henderson has developed into a team leader. Normally, Sherman tells you the strength of the team is somewhere on defense. Not this year. The strength of the team is the offensive line, Sherman said. The key may be found in center Caleb Simmons, a 5-11, 215-pound senior. He is a threeyear starter. He hasnt missed a game in three years. He is really vital as the senior captain. Sherman said the guards are really strong and intense. They are 6foot, 227-pound senior Kiel Yurich and 6-4, 265pound senior James Daniel. We are extremely dependent on them because of their strength and toughness, said Sherman. Its a good year to be a running back. This is a good time to be a back on this team. They are going to move some people. When people think of lineman, they often think they need to add weight. Sherman said Colton Skipper, a 6-3, 290-pound senior tackle, lost 30 pounds and it has helped him. It made him a better player, the coach said. Hes stronger, faster than hes ever been. Hes a potential college prospect. Newcomer Brady Adams (6-2, 250-pound senior tackle) has worked his way into the starting lineup, Sherman said. Our coaches love his work ethic. His determination is really cool. Those who follow Raider football wont be shocked that Wes Moir, a 6-5, 165-pound senior will be back as kicker and punter. Sherman said he has great grades, a 4.0 or better, and may be kicking for some college next year. Anchoring the 3-5 defense is a nose guard who is a college prospect. Junior Montel Presley, 5-11, 295 pounds is already drawing attention from several schools. The coach said he is extremely strong. Defensive end Carson Wells, a 6-2, 220-pound sophomore. He continues to grow and moved from linebacker to lineman. He can pass and rush well. DE Devin Pappinheim, a 6-6, 225-pound senior, is committed to Appalachian State. The linebackers are Bryce Hatcher, a 6-2, 232-pound senior, Brady Barnes, a 5-11, 175pound sophomore and Junior Ceballos, a 5-10, 155-pound sophomore. Barnes is new. A freshman competing for time is Deonte Grant, 5-10, 172 pounds. Sherman said he is very impressive. The coach said that free safety Deric Dixon, is tall and lanky, and is going to grow into a great player. Hes young. Hes a 5-11, 170-pound sophomore. Strong safety junior Matt Williams, 5-5, 155 pounds, is a returner. B.J. Hudson, a 5-11, 180pound junior is real green. Athleticism is still there. His coach said he has plenty of ability. Senior cornerback Myles Frazier has a lot of speed and a lot of experience. Sherman said it is a really difficult position. Sherman said that sophomore Jalon Taylor, a 5-7, 170-pounder, is starting to dominate at the other corner. He pays attention to details. Its a good district, Sherman said of 5A-6. Pasco and Zephyrhills, Nature Coast can all beat you if they dont take them seriously. We think we can be very good, the coach said. We have issues to work out. Dunnellon played South Sumter Aug. 21 in the Kickoff Classic. South Sumter will host Wildwood in the opening game Friday, Aug. 29.

SUMTERCOUNTYTIMESThursday, August 28, 2014 G13 FOOTBALL G4Thursday, August 28, 2014SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES FOOTBALL Donell James. 31 Dylan Devine, 12 Dylan Sapp, 19 Edimer Lopez, 22 Efrain Ceballos, 58 Garrett Shiflet, 62 Isaac Fields, 6 Isiah Patterson, 36 Israel Andrade, 77 J. T.Taylor, 2 Jalon Taylor, 34 James Daniel, 72 record and would love to have a similar program with all the success that goes with it. South Sumter consistently shows teams that a small school can produce winning football. The Raiders have been under the head coaching of Sherman since 1984. During that period, South Sumter High has had a record of 245-105 in that time. That includes 15 district titles, five regional titles and a second place finish in the Class 2A state one year. The team lost in the state finals in 2005 to Hollywood Chaminade and the team is a regular in the Class 4A Top 10 polls. South Sumter is a marvel of success. Though he would defer credit to others, much of the reason for the success goes back to Sherman, a modest man. Sherman, 58, was an Army brat.His family settled in London, Kentucky. He played college football at Eastern Kentucky University. Sherman moved down in 1984 and has been in Bushnell ever since. I think we have established a consistent tradition,said Sherman. The consistency in coaching has been established. Our kids work very hard. Summer conditioning is a major reason for the Raiders success. Traditionally, we start our summer program just after July 4,Sherman said. We run it 6 to 8:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday. We require our players to attend 18 to 20 workouts. I think our conditioning this summer has been extremely important to our success. Our attendance rate is over 90 percent. Sherman said not many students transfer into the area but many of his players have excellent preparation for prep football. John Kinley, the South Sumter Middle School football coach, has been instrumental in preparing these players to come up and play football, Sherman said. We went to a no-huddle because someone else, Orlando Lake Highland Prep, was doing that to us,said Sherman. We started using it in 2000. We never huddle in practice. Of course, the no-huddle offense isnt a surprise to the teams who scout or play the Raiders. It probably is dependent on who we are playing,Sherman said. The successful schools know they have to get ready to defend it. The key goes right back to practice. The teams have a hard time adjusting when the other team is already on the line of scrimmage. We try to keep people from huddling. Another factor is that playing football at South Sumter has become family traditions in many local families. I think it is a traditional matter,Sherman said. For most of these kids their parents or grandparents played here. They are expected to carry on the tradition. Sherman also thinks that being in a small town helps the winning tradition. There arent many distractions in a community like Bushnell and a lot of players want to be football heroes. Being in a small town is where I prefer to be, he said. They dont have the distractions they do in bigger areas. The dads, grandfathers and uncles expect them to carry on the tradition. We have a traditional type family atmosphere. Most of our coaches have been there for at least 10 years. We have had a couple of coaches who have gone on to become head coaches. Most of our coaches like myself prefer to live in a small town. When a team is likely to win its district every year and have a playoff run, its easy to understand why Bushnell area kids line up to sweat, hit and try to become football heroes. Try he may but Sherman has to take plenty of credit for the fact that South Sumter High football means winning football to lots of people. This years Raiders will be interesting to watch as they try to maintain that tradition using a different cast of characters.
