Established in 1881 50 CentsTIMES INSIDE INSIDESUMTER COUNTY Thursday, September 4, 2014Volume 128 Number 36 E-mail us: news@sctnews.comFor more news, videos, photos Visit us: sumtercountytimes.com QUICK CLICK Things should be a bit different for South Sumter Friday night. South Sumter Highs football team will face an improved Crystal River High team in Citrus County. Crystal River was 3-7 last year. They use a classic Wing T offense under coach Nathan Varnadore. They are getting better, said coach Inman Sherman. They have a lot of kids back. Their coach is doing a good job. They will be a better football team than they were last year. Friday night, the Pirates took a walk-off 26-21 win over Nature Coast. Backup quarterback Khyrel Harvey fired a 31-yard touchdown pass to Keshon Hopkins as the clock struck zero. Hopkins scored three TDs for the Pirates. The game was a bit different for South Sumter Friday night. Last Friday night, the Raiders beat Wildwood 63-0 and played the whole second half under a running clock. Wildwood was easily overmatched. Its a mismatch, Sherman said. I think Wildwood is getting better. You try not to get kids hurt. South Sumter was 12-1 last year. Wildwood was 1-10 last year. This Friday, Wildwood will face Keystone Heights at 7:30 p.m. at the Wildcats field.South Sumter 63, Wildwood 0One telling statistic was that South Sumters defense held Wildwood to minus 29 yards rushing and the Wildcats did not complete a pass in the contest. Also, the Raiders ran for 211 yards. South Sumters Isial Flowers scored on a six-yard run in the first quarter. He would finish the game with three touchdowns. A fumbled snap on a punt attempt gave the Raiders the ball at the Wildwood one-yard line. South Sumters J.T. Taylor ran for the score. Taylor also had three TDs rushing. South Sumter quarterback Reece Kinley hit Ken Robinson with a 19-yard TD pass. Taylor ran one yard for his second score of the quarter. South Sumter led 28-0 after the first quarter and were already using subs. South Sumter scored on a Flowers 36-yard run with 11:51 in the second quarter. Turnout low for primary Sumter Raiders, Wildcats move on With the Primary Election behind voters, the Supervisor of Elections Office is expecting a much stronger turnout for the upcoming General Election in November. In Sumter County, 18.4 percent of the registered voters turned out for last weeks election. Of 81,337 registered voters in the county that meant 14,986 of them cast ballots. While voter turnout was low, Sumter did beat the statewide average of 17.5. Low voter numbers didnt come as a surprise, said Supervisor of Elections Karen Krauss. We were expecting it to be low, she said. Actually, I was pleased to see that it was as high as it was. We heard when ballots went out that people were BOBREICHMAN Editor See VOTE, Page 2 LARRYBUGG Times correspondent See BALL Page 2 Karen Krauss Beware: Court-related scams Big ideas, little landThe Sumter County Master Gardeners have a demonstration native garden on site, at the office in Bevilles Corner. The garden includes plants and trees that are native to Florida, such as long leaf pine and blanket flowers. Donna Lester (standing) and Carol Blythe are shown amid the pines. Blythe is a master gardener and Lester is both master gardener and a program director. Think youve missed a court date or have one approaching? If youve received emails warning you of such matters, be careful, you are very likely the object of a new and growing scam. The scam hasnt resulted in any known local victims yet, according to Sumter County Clerk of the Circuit Court Gloria Hayward but just to caution local residents, she is sending out a warning. The scam going around that Hayward, along with the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers association, want residents to be aware of is computer related. There has been a reported spike recently in fraudulent emails by entities impersonating clerks offices across the state, according to a press release from Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers association. While Hayward said her office hasnt had any reports of the scam locally, the new round of scams is coming in the form of an e-mail referencing a missed court appearance. Unlike past scams, these emails attempt to retrieve personal data, forcefully, by computer virus attached as a .zip file. These malicious attachments contain a Trojan Horse virus that becomes active as soon as the file is unzipped. Recent examples of these scams have been signed by fictitious county clerks. Hayward said residents need to be cautious because new scams come quickly and hope to elicit quick responses. They concern people because some people think theyre going to get in trouble if they dont comment back, Hayward said. People need to know that we never contact anyone that way, she said. Everything we send is in writing.

Everything we send is in writing. Sumter County Clerk of the Circuit Court Gloria HaywardYoull never believe what you can do on just a half an acre of Florida land hundreds of species of plants and dozens of animals and insects. If you dont believe it, drop by the demonstration garden at the Sumter County Extension Office located on the west side of the West Central Florida Agricultural Education Center at Bevilles Corner. The garden is about half an acre of land, filled with native species from trees, birds and pollinators to vegetables and herbs. The native garden area was designed by a lot of people, said extension agent Jim Davis, Extension Agent II Residential Horticulture, Master Gardener Coordinator and Florida Master Naturalist Instructor at the Sumter County Extension Office. Input for the garden came from former Sumter agent Brooke Moffiss and the Master Gardener chairperson Pat Leach, who is a native plant enthusiast. I call her my walking encyclopedia, said Davis of Leach. We get a lot of compliments, Davis said of the native garden that draws passersby with a natural Florida welcome. Long leaf pine needles carpet the ground and pine trees stretch toward the sky, as blanket flowers in orange and red frame the scene. We want to reintroduce those back in to the environment, said Davis of the long leaf pine trees, adding that they offer shade and are actually beneficial to some species of wildlife. He said the trees were coming close to being overharvested.

SCAMcontinued from Page 1 asking if that was all there was to vote on, Krauss said. But Krauss said shes expecting a large voter turnout in November. Big draws for that election will be the race for governor and Constitution Amendment No. 2, questioning the use of marijuana for certain medical conditions. Heres how Sumter voted in the primary: In the Republican race for governor, incumbent Gov. Rick Scott easily led the pack, obtaining 95 percent of Sumters votes followed far behind by Elizabeth Cuevas-Neunder with 3 percent and Yinka Abosede Adeshina with only half a percent. Democratic challenger Charlie Crist easily defeated challenger Nan Rich by obtaining 72 percent of the votes. Democrat George Sheldon took 58 percent of the Sumter vote for Attorney General, with challenger Perry E. Thurston receiving 42 percent. Local Republican candidate Mary Hatcher, of Bushnell, easily led her challengers in Sumter for 5th Judicial Circuit Judge, Group 3. Hatcher captured 56 percent of the votes while competitors Denise A. Dymond Lyn, Sandy K. Kautz and Bo Samargya all received 15 percent or less. Hatcher also claimed the seat by capturing 46 percent (54,577 votes) of the total votes for the district position. Sumter voters had an almost even three-way split when it came to the method they used for casting their ballots. Early voting slightly surpassed those who turned out at the polls. A total of 4,936 voters took advantage of early voting while 4,653 voters went to the polls. Closely following were the 4,604 votes received from voters using mail-in ballots. Typically, Sumter County is stronger in early voting. Usually early voting is extremely popular, Krauss said. It surprised me because they were all pretty even, usually early voting is much higher. VOTEcontinued from Page 1 Sumter voters had an almost even three-way split when it came to the method they used for casting their ballots. Robinson caught a 14yard TD pass from Martin for a score. Flowers ran 36 yards for a score. South Sumter had 159 yards rushing in the half. South Sumter led 49-0 at the half. Taylor scored his third TD on a four-yard run. Flowers scored his third touchdown.

Wildwood jumped out immediately to a 16-0 lead, thanks to an 82 -yard run by Rodney Mitchell and a 71-yard drive by the Wildcats ending in a 14-yard touchdown run for Cornelius Salters. The Lions would respond with a drive themselves making the score 16-6. On the next drive, Cats Quarterback DeMarlonLollar on a broken play would rush for 56 yards and another score for the Wildcats bringing the score to 22-6. Foundation would tack on two other scores but not before the Wildcats trio of Mitchell, Salters, and Lollar would each score another touchdown on the night securing a 42-20 victory for Wildwood Middle School in their season opener.

Its one of my favorite sayings. First of all, I like saying aint. (It makes me happy.) Second, since I truly want others to be happy, its good to know the way to achieve that is to make myself happy first. For the good of mankind, its a sacrifice Im willing to make. I have a long history of trying to make myself happy, long before I even had thoughts of being a mama. I well remember one time in particular when I was in junior high and decided a surprise party for my birthday would make me happy beyond words. Several months before my birthday, I started dropping hints to my friends, including passing notes in class to my best friend Cheryl Peterson that said: Only 43 days until Nancys birthday. Plan her surprise party NOW. I also let everyone know my favorite cake flavor (coconut or spice cake) and gifts of choice (Beatles records or Yardley Slicker lip gloss). I was relentless with my surprise birthday party campaign. Being a junior high drama student, I even practiced my Emmy-winning reaction performance. (A surprise party? For me?) Maybe my friends loved me or maybe I wore them down with all my hinting. Maybe even back in 8th grade God had mercy on my happinessseeking soul. Whatever the reason, on the Saturday before my birthday I walked into my house and, as per my instructions, all my friends leaped out and yelled, Surprise! Of course I feigned surprise (after all, I had been practicing my mad junior high drama skills), but of course I wasnt surprised. Not only wasnt I surprised, but the party didnt make me as ecstatically happy as I had supposed it would. We still had a good party. We dumped Kentucky Fried Chicken gravy on a neighbors driveway, rang the doorbell and then when the neighbors came outside, Garrett Parkinson pretended to throw up and we all ran away. We tossed each other in the pool with our clothes on and played records, but it didnt make me happy beyond words. King Solomon experienced the same thing, minus the KFC fake vomit gravy prank. He had it all money, power, sex, honor, lots of stuff. Anything you or I have on our wish list, he had, yet he still wasnt happy. He wrote, I thought in my heart, Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good. But that also proved meaningless (Ecclesiastes 2:1). He tried fine wine and impressive building projects, planted vineyards and gardens, owned slaves and herds and flocks, amassed fortunes and harems and became greater than anyone alive. He denied himself nothing, refused his heart no pleasure or desire. However, when he had done it all he surveyed his life and came to the conclusion that it had all been chasing the wind. In other words, what a rip off. But not really. Not ultimately. God has made the universe work in such a way that whenever you or I chase after the thing or things that we think will make us happy beyond words, once we get them, theres usually still a void. Theres still an unscratched itch. The irony is, as Ive discovered, Im happiest when Im not pursuing my own happiness or well being, but pursuing the well being of someone else. I suspect thats true of you, too. This past Christmas my husband and I did not exchange gifts but instead bought a slew of toys and clothes for a 4-year-old girl weve never met, and my husband was so happy I thought he would burst. (Seeing that made me happy.) A few weeks ago my pastor reminded us that the happiest person who ever lived was Jesus who, for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross. His joy was you, the pastor said. Jesus also told his followers, Whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost? (Luke 9:24-25). Another Bible translation says, Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? Being reminded of that made me happy beyond words and a little more willing and even eager to give up my if Mama aint happy way of doing life.

Keeping Mama happy Nancy Kennedy Special to theTimesLetters to the editor March of Dimes, the leading organization for mom and baby health, urges parents to immunize their children against infectious diseases before the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. Influenza, pertussis (whooping cough), and measles are just a few of the serious vaccine-preventable diseases that still affect children and adults in the United States today. Immunizations are as important today as they were in the age of polio in the 1950s, when the March of Dimes funded the pioneering work that resulted in the vaccine that still is used today against this deadly disease, says Dr. Karen Harris, Chair of the Program Services Committee for the March of Dimes Florida Chapter. Back-toschool season is the time of the year when we especially encourage kids to get their shots to protect their health. Even small groups of unimmunized people can quickly spread disease, Dr. Harris says. In the US, both measles and whooping cough are at epidemic rates. According to the Florida Department of Health, the most recent school year (2013 2014) immunization status reports for all 67 Florida counties indicate rates of: Kindergarten: 93.2 percent (State and National goal is 95 percent) Seventh grade: 96.6 percent (State goal is 95 percent; National goal is 90 percent) Two-year-old children (2013): 86.72 percent (State and National goal is 90 percent) Immunization importantfor school childrenGrace notes Halloween In The Park plans are up in the air Plans are underway for the annual Halloween in the Park, (HitP) sponsored by the Friends of the Panasoffkee Community Library, Inc.

Children may spread the flu virus for up to three days before they show any symptoms and for longer than a week after getting sick, putting their classmates at risk of becoming sick, too. Parents, grandparents, caregivers, and anyone in close contact with an infant should get an adult pertussis vaccine to help protect themselves and to help stop the spread of the disease to the newborns in their lives. Newborns are most at-risk for this highly contagious and often serious disease because they dont begin receiving their own vaccinations until they are two months old and may not be protected until they have received at least three doses of an infant pertussis vaccine. This year, the March of Dimes continues their work on the Sounds of Pertussis Campaign, a national education campaign started in 2009 to help raise awareness about the potential dangers of pertussis and the importance of adult vaccination. March of Dimes continues to fund vaccine research and to work with international coalitions seeking to improve immunization rates and eliminate preventable diseases that threaten babies and children.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER4, 2014, PAGEA5 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says diseases can spread when infected people cough, sneeze, or even talk. Children may spread the flu virus for up to three days before they show any symptoms and for longer than a week after getting sick, putting their classmates at risk of becoming sick, too. The CDC, the March of Dimes, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists all recommend that, in addition to children, all pregnant women and those planning to become pregnant should get an annual flu shot in the fall. The normal biological changes of pregnancy put pregnant women at increased risk of the harmful effects of flu. Recent research suggests that the flu vaccine may also lower a womans risk of having a stillbirth or miscarriage. The flu vaccine helps protect your body from infection, and this protection is in turn passed on to your baby during pregnancy, adds Dr. Harris, explaining that immunization during pregnancy helps keep the newborn safe during the first few months of life until he or she is ready for the first set of vaccinations. Parents, grandparents, caregivers, and anyone in close contact with an infant should get an adult pertussis vaccine to help protect themselves and to help stop the spread of the disease to the newborns in their lives. Newborns are most atrisk for this highly contagious and often serious disease because they dont begin receiving their own vaccinations until they are two months old and may not be protected until they have received at least three doses of an infant pertussis vaccine. This year, the March of Dimes continues their work on the Sounds of Pertussis Campaign, a national education campaign started in 2009 to help raise awareness about the potential dangers of pertussis and the importance of adult vaccination. March of Dimes also supports the Word of Mom: Celebrating Generations of Healthy Advice campaign, which empowers moms to make the best health decisions for themselves and their families by making sure their families immunizations are up to date. March of Dimes continues to fund vaccine research and to work with international coalitions seeking to improve immunization rates and eliminate preventable diseases that threaten babies and children. More information on baby vaccinations is available from the March of Dimes website: www.marchofdimes.com/baby/well babycare_vaccinations.html For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER4, 2014, PAGEA7 said theres also been a concentrated effort to grow the trees at Dade Park in Bushnell. The needles actually drop down and make natural mulch, which acidifies the soil and works like free fertilizer. The native garden is filled with butterflies, pollinators, hummingbirds, mocking birds and a bluebird that hides in the trees. The garden has between 25 and 30 species including the blanket flower, tickseed, coreopsis, dune sunflower, rosin weed and native salvia. It takes a little while for the pine trees to grow up, but finally theyre in the mature form, he said. They were planted about five years ago and are only about a foot tall when theyre planted. They look like a small, bushy plant. Davis said the garden has drawn compliments from residents and staff from various state agencies. Were very happy with that portion of the garden, he said, adding that before it was just grass and now points out how much wildlife can be brought into one small space. The Vegetable Garden The vegetable side of the garden is yielding only herbs right now, as they renovate the area and wait for the next growing season. Davis said its really too hot right now to grow most of the produce. The gardeners will begin planting in September, although they do have some muscadine grapes, a kumquat tree, with an additional muscadine and figs trees being planned for the future. The demo garden also has a small enclosed area that they will enlarge and turn into an outdoor teaching area. That will be the location for some rain barrel workshops and possibly some herb classes. Future plans for the general garden include a rose garden with hearty rose plants and a pollinator garden, which I am very passionate about, he said. Theyre planning to plant turf and a cottage garden as well. Cottage gardens are defined as informal in design with dense plantings and a mix of both ornamentals and edibles. Davis said the idea behind a demo garden to demonstrate plants that are available for the homeowner, but also unfamiliar to the homeowner. The more people buy, the more nurseries sell, he said. He used crepe myrtles as an example, noting that they previously planted three crepe myrtles at the same site. The first one did not receive any fertilizer or water; the second was cut in half or crepe murdered and the third one was pruned. That was in February, he said. Now, in August. the one with nothing done to it has 100 to 150 blooms. The second tree was delayed in blooming and has 50 to 60 blooms. The final crepe myrtle, that was selectively pruned, has about 250 blooms on it, he said. Master Gardener Roger Jones planted 15 varieties of tomatoes, out in the demo garden to find out what would work well for the homeowner, Davis said. Some did well, some did not, some attracted more insects and one tomato plant lasted until late July, he said. Davis said the entire garden, between the native and vegetable area, will have between 100 and 200 species of plants. And the wildlife that we have attracted in this small area, its just amazing, he said, adding they had even seen a kestrel (a small falcon) fly through. He also points out that the garden seeds itself now and much of what is up and blooming today was the natural seed and growth process from previous years. They are holding a Master Gardener class in September, but have already completed their applications and interviews, he said. They hold them each fall. The next open class will be in spring the Florida Master Naturalist class. The spring class does not require a volunteer commitment and is 40 hours on flora and fauna.

Florida Farm Bureau Federation is offering multiple $250 mini-grants to certified Florida educators who are engaged in classroom instruction at the pre-K to 12th grade levels for the 201415 school year. The grants will be awarded for up to $250 for original and creative activities or programs that increase the understanding of agriculture among both students and educators. Agriculture has no subject boundaries, said Florida Farm Bureau Womens Leadership Coordinator Michael Rogalsky. We encourage teachers to think outside the box when integrating agriculture into their curriculum. Subject areas such as social studies, math, language arts and science are all important to agriculture and teachers that build agriculture into these subjects are encouraged to apply for the grant. Grant applications are due Oct. 1. Recipients of the grant will be notified no later than Nov. 15 via email. Educators can apply for the grant by visiting http://www.floridafarmbureau.org/programs/teacher_mini_grants. The Mini-Grant Program is part of the Florida Farm Bureau Womens Leadership Committees commitment to support agricultural education in classrooms across Florida. A total of up to $9,500 will be awarded in minigrants throughout the 2014-15 school year. Florida Farm Bureau has awarded more than $150,000 in total grants toward promoting agriculture in the classroom since the programs inception in 1998.

PAGEA8SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER4, 2014 The Sumter County Chamber will host The Fourth Annual Taste of Simply Sumter on Thursday, Sept. 11, at Providence Independence in Wildwood. More than two dozen local restaurants are participating in the event which is planned from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. A Taste of Simply Sumter is an extension of the chambers popular Simply Sumter program that highlights independent and local restaurants and retail shops serving Sumter County. At the event guests can sample signature dishes from their favorite restaurants and browse selections from local retail stores. We dont charge local restaurants and shops to participate in this event, said chamber Executive Director Samantha Merritt. We simply hope to increase community awareness and do our part to support this vital part of our local economy. 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. Presenting sponsors of the event are: Tri County Landscapes, SECO Energy, T&D Family of Companies, Tangent Media, Maury L. Carter Real Estate, The Villages Insurance, and Heart of Florida Environmental. Supporting Sponsors are Mike Scott Plumbing, Purcell Funeral Home, Center State Bank, Mulberry Integrative Medicine, Cemex, Nash Plumbing, Dan Gibson Photography, and Blue Monster Promotions. Genesis Sourcing Solutions is an associate sponsor. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by calling the chamber office. For more information about the event call the chamber office at 352-793-3099. The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce is the primary business organization in Sumter County, Florida, representing more than 470 members. Its purpose is to educate, support and promote business in Sumter County. For information about membership, please contact the chamber at 352-793-3099 or visit www.sumterchamber.org.

Business Focus ... Located in Bushnell, at 7920 S.W. 90th Ave., the Bushnell Bed and Breakfast offers a unique experience as they work to fulfill a mission. A unique Bed and Breakfast that was made to order in BushnellThe Bushnell Bed and Breakfast is known for its superior guest experience, amazing hot fresh country breakfasts, equine facilities, direct access to Withlacoochee State Forest horse and hiking trails and down-home friendly atmosphere, according to owners Gary and Joanne Macintosh. Located in Bushnell, at 7920 S.W. 90th Ave., the family offers a unique experience as they work to fulfill a mission. They feel that in 2001, after surviving storms in their own lives, they were given the mission to build a place in the country where people, especially couples, can get out of their busyness, be quiet and couples can take time to decompress and reconnect with each other. As a matter of fact, they feel one of the best quotes to describe the inn is, As soon as I drive in your driveway I feel peace. While many bed and breakfasts occupy old homes that have been converted, the Macintoshes built to suit. We actually designed our facility as a bed and breakfast. We have four guest suites, each six hundred square feet. Each has a sitting room, bedroom, en-suite private baths, private entrances and a huge screened porch with rocking chairs that overlook lush pastures and the Withlacoochee State Forest. Although they do not offer horses to rent or provide trail rides, their guests can bring their own horses to ride the nearby trails. We provide stalls in our stable and each suite has its own pasture of at lease 1.25 acres. Stall board or pasture board for horses is an additional charge. We are also licensed as a restaurant, as well as a bed and breakfast. That allows them to cook a full breakfast for guests each morning. Gary spent 33 years as a firefighter/paramedic three of those years in Sumter County, while Joanne spent years as a public school teacher and a home school mom to their daughter Melissa. They bravely stepped out and took on the challenge, having had no hotel or restaurant training or experience. During the permitting, building and licensing process we remained faithful to our mission and never wavered, said Macintosh. The aspect of our business that we most enjoy is meeting and building relationship with our guests. Some of our guests have returned more than 20 times since we opened, many have become dear friends while others have become family. For more information about the inn, call 352-793-7920 or email: BushnellBandB@aol.com.Although they do not offer horses to rent or provide trail rides, their guests can bring their own horses to ride the nearby trails. There are four guest suites, each six hundred square feet and each with a sitting room, bedroom and en-suite. The inn looks over the Withlacoochee Forest.

PAGEA10SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER4, 2014 FAMILY FEATURES We all want to eat more vegetables and in the summer, when farmers markets and grocery stores are filled with fresh, colorful produce, its easier than ever. From juicy red tomatoes and yellow sweet corn to vibrant green broccoli, seasonal produce can be even more enjoy able with the addition of spices and herbs. Im always thinking about ways to make vegetables taste great and be more healthful and exciting other than just adding butter and salt, said registered dietitian Wendy Bazilian. Adding spices and herbs is easy to do, and they only cost pennies per serving. Plus, theyre already in your kitchen. To add flavor to everyday vegetable favorites like zucchini and carrots, Bazilian recommends an easy rule of thumb: start with 1/4 teaspoon of spices and herbs, such as basil and oregano, per cup of veggies, along with a splash of citrus juice or olive oil. You can also dial up the flavor depending on the cooking method, Bazilian said. Roasting vegetables like broccoli and tomatoes creates a caramelized flavor that pairs deliciously with garlic, basil, oregano, honey and white vinegar. Grilling vegetables gives a smoky, charred flavor. Or, let the natural flavor of green beans shine by steaming them with rosemary and thyme. Try these simple flavor tips to season your favorite vegetables and visit www.McCormick.com for more ideas you can use all year long. Mixed Vegetable GrillServings: 6 1 tablespoon light brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Basil Leaves 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder 1/8 teaspoon McCormick Ground Black Pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil 6 cups assorted cut-up vegetables, such as asparagus, bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, red onion and small sweet potato Mix brown sugar, basil, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in small bowl. In large bowl, drizzle oil over vegetables; toss to coat well. Add seasoning mixture; toss to coat well. Place vegetables in grill basket or rack, or thread onto skewers.

The nature of cats is curious, predatory and self-reliant. They love to explore high places and investigate anything or anywhere they can fit into. The new cat or kitten you bring home may surprise you in the places he or she can get into, so when adopting your new furry friend, be cautious of where kitty may be. In the laundry room, cats have been known to nap in dryers, so always check before starting the dryer. In living rooms, always check recliners and sofa beds before using them, as kitty could be exploring the mechanics of your furniture. Just as you would child proof your home, so you must be sure that your home is safe for a curious cat. Household chemicals, plastic bags, and anything string like, such as dental floss, yarn, etc. can cause dangerous health issues. Inside cats live a longer and healthier life, but we must also consider their natural instincts to hunt. For kitty to live a happy and enriched life indoors, we should engage them in play that imitates hunting. Many inexpensive kitty toys can be bought that replicates the hunt and will bring out your inner kittys wild side. Kitty will have fun while getting exercise and being mentally stimulated, and you can enjoy bonding with your cat. Fionas is a 6 year old cat whos owner was an American soldier who never returned from Afganistan for her. She has her own unique personality, and wants to be your only cat Somewhat aloof, Fiona needs a special person who will love her for who she is, and appreciate her beauty. There are many cats and kitties waiting to be adopted at the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. You can view adorable cats on-line at www.hsspca.org or take a drive to the Humane Societys Lake Panasoffkee shelter and visit the cats in the kitty house. Find the purrfect cat and begin the purrfect life together. SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER4, 2014, PAGEA13 OPEN 7 DAYS 800-335-4395 352-343-2241 *PLUS TAX, TAG, TITLE & IMPROVEMENTS.
