The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FREC) is currently reviewing comments and concerns expressed by the public and other sources about a proposed multi-billion dollar, 650-mile natural gas pipeline project that would cut through Sumter County in its projected route from Alabama to Orlando. The Sabal Trail Project is currently under review by the FREC, the lead federal agency for conducting the environmental review of the project. The agency is currently planning to prepare an environmental impact statement about the proposed project. Since the public meetings earlier this year, FREC has received more than 250 comment letters about the proposed pipeline. Additionally, about 200 individual comments at 13 public meetings about the project are being considered. With the company expected to submit an application for the project next month, it is likely to take another year to 18 months before the commission would vote on it. After they apply, there will be more opportunities for more public comments, said Tamara Young-Allen, FREC spokesperson. This is still very early in the process. Earlier this year, the developer of the gas pipeline met with Sumter residents to discuss proposed changes in the 36-inch pipeline project. It was the third proposed route that Sabal Trail representatives had displayed during a series of open house meetings in the county. While other routes would take the pipeline along a south-easterly path west of Lake Panasoffkee, much of the Gum Slough Alternative presented at that meeting passes between the lake and the Wildwood area. Most of the route is adjacent to an existing high-capacity electric transmission line. The latest changes would take the pipeline away from more populated areas, but still has potential impacts for a number of rural residents. In particular the south west portions of the Royal Community along County Road 231, the northern portions of the Wildwood Ranch community and some areas along County Road 702 near the Lake County line appear to potentially be effected. Sumter residents have voiced concerns about the project and many of their concerns have been voiced by other potentially affected landowners. John and Lucy Shoup were among the small group of property owners attending the open house early in the year. Their narrow parcel of land in Wildwood Ranch is about 200 feet south of the power line easement. They've had enough of rightof-way issues, the Shoups said. Their community was agitated a few years ago when there was planning for a second large power line on the easement.

The variety of foods ranged from eggplant and penne pasta to spinach berry salad providing guests with a variety of options. The vendors are asked to supply small samples of their dishes, allowing the public to get an idea of whats on their menu and just how good it is.

PAGEA2SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER25, 2014 pipeline project could take 25 to 50 feet along the north side of their tract for an easement, they said. They are concerned with possibly having it that close. They do have a lot of gas explosions, Lucy Shoup said. With any luck, maybe it'll just go away. In the meantime, they have consulted an attorney. Jeanne Tolle, a resident of the Center Hill area, also attended the meeting. She is concerned about safety and damage to her property including a drainage canal and numerous oak trees. It's not the same as taking right-of-way for a road, she said. A concrete road and a pipeline that can explode are not the same thing. GAS continued from Page 1 Police report Two Dixie Chopper riding lawnmowers were snatched from Lowreys True Value hardware store in Bushnell last week when someone rode the mowers off the property. The theft happened sometime on Sunday, Sept. 14, according to a sheriffs office report. Authorities say someone cut through a fence on the property across the street from the hardware store on State Road 48 in Bushnell. The property owner discovered the damage Sunday night and then informed the owner of the hardware store and recommended he check his property. When the store owner arrived, he discovered that someone had cut through his chain link fence where the mowers were stored on the east side of the building and removed two of them. It appears that the mowers were driven through the cut fence and across the road and then into a wooded area where they were loaded onto a waiting vehicle, according to sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. The mowers are valued at $7,500 each. The sheriffs office is seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed the crime, Caruthers said. Persons with information should contact the sheriffs office at 793-2621 or CRIMELINE at 1-800-423TIPS where they may be eligible for a reward if it leads to an arrest.

POSTMASTER:SENDADDRESSCHANGESTO SUMTERCOUNTYTIMES. Child safely recovered during drug deal When law enforcement officers arrested three adults on drug charges last week, they also found a one-year-old child inside the suspects vehicle. The suspects were arrested about 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 17, at the Wendys restaurant on County Road 48 in Bushnell, according to a sheriffs office report. The arrests were made by the Sumter County Sheriffs Special Investigation Squad during an undercover drug operation that resulted in the three arrests. Dontrail Lamaar Bell, 26, Dunedin, agreed to travel from St. Petersburg to Bushnell to sell heroin and crack cocaine to the undercover drug agent at the Wendys restaurant, according to a sheriffs office report. Once the drug transaction was completed Bell was taken into custody without incident by the Special Investigations Squad. During the arresting process, it was discovered that a oneyear-old child was in Bells vehicle along with two adult passengers identified as Tito Nakai Bell Jr., 20, of St. Petersburg, and Phillesia Yashae Mount, 26, of St. Petersburg. Tito Nakai Bell Jr. was promptly arrested for possession of marijuana after admitting to detectives that he had been preparing a marijuana cigar blunt and was found to be in possession of 12 hydrocodone pills, according to the report. Mount was arrested for possession of marijuana related to 31.9 grams found in plain view next to the diaper bag where she was sitting, the report states. The Sheriffs Victim Advocate and the Department of Children and Families responded and took custody of the child who appeared to be unharmed and was later released to her mother who drove from the St. Petersburg area after being notified. Dontrail Lamaar Bell was arrested for sale of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to sell, sale of cocaine, possession of cocaine with the intent to sell, child abuse, keeping a drug shop vehicle and driving while license revoked habitual. Bond was set at $26,000. Tito Nakai Bell Jr. was arrested for possession of marijuana and possession of hydrocodone. Bond was set at $3,000. Mount was arrested for possession of marijuana. Bond was set at $2,000. BOBREICHMAN Editor Dontrail Bell Tito Bell Jr. Philesia Mount Panasoffkee man charged with having child porn on computer An investigation is continuing in connection with the arrest last week of a Lake Panasoffkee man charged with having child pornography to his computer. Nolan Jay Lane, 51, was arrested last Thursday, Sept. 18, on 20 counts of possession of photographs of sexual performances by a child. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $40,000. After collecting information during a criminal investigation involving the possible use of child pornography, sheriffs investigators served a search warrant at Lanes residence, according to a sheriffs office report. While reviewing the uploaded images I discovered images of the sexual exploitation of children, according to the arrest report filed by sheriffs Det. Tom Ford, a member of a task force tackling Internet crimes against children. The images depict various acts of sexual conduct of children that clearly appear to be of children less than 18 years of age. Some of the photographs appear to be of children as young as 5 years old. The investigation was launched in May after law enforcement authorities were notified that Lane had 29 questionable files, according to the report. During an interview with at the sheriffs office, Lane reportedly told Det. Tom Ford that he was visiting a website for photographic research and background. Lane is a self proclaimed photographer, Ford told the Times Monday. He also said there might be more images on items collected from within the residence during the search warrant, the report states. Ford said the investigation is continuing and that additional charges are pending. We have a lot of evidence to analyze. BOBREICHMAN Editor Nolan Lane A Webster man was arrested last week for forcing a child to perform a sexual act on him. Shawn William Jeffries, 36, was arrested on the sexual charge last Friday, Sept. 19, according to a sheriffs office report. Jeffries denied his involvement when authorities ask him about the incident, according to a sheriffs office report. He was placed in the Sumter County jail with bond set at $10,000.

She asked, What kind of a mom gets excited because her kid is only smoking pot? The kind of mom whose kid had been doing cocaine and other hard drugs. She calls this son Doozy, as in one doozy of a human being, a challenge to know how to love. Not that she doesnt love him fiercely, but that she struggles to know how to express that love in a way that helps, not hurts him. She wrote recently on her Facebook page: To love a child is to have your heart go walking around outside your body. To love a troubled adult child is to have your heart, your intestines and your spleen go walking outside your body and onto a rollercoaster, then a Tilt-A-Whirl and down Niagara Falls. You dont know whether to laugh, cry or throw up. She said, Its funny how I find myself practicing the same Lamaze breathing I used when I gave birth to his 9-lb., 2-oz. self some 35 years agoYou know that transition stage (during labor) where you feel completely out of control? Im there again, breathing through labor pains. She said her mind has been kidnapped by kid worry and she wonders if it ever stops, if a mom ever stops worrying about her kids who are in trouble, wonders if moms ever stop praying frantic prayers. The answer is no, moms never stop being moms. I told her of a conversation I had one time with God. It was years ago during one of the many times I was trying with all my might to control just one small section of the universe where my daughter lives and was having difficulty wrestling the controls away from God. Things were not going well, which means they werent going as I had wanted them to go. I knew exactly how her situation should be fixed and had been acting as a consultant to God about it, although he wasnt taking my advice, which, frankly, is par for the course. It was then that he gave me a mental picture, which sparked our conversation. I pictured him as a universe-renown surgeon performing delicate surgery on my child, the kind of surgery only he knew how to do. As he skillfully cut and sliced, clipped and clamped, I kept poking my fingers in what he was doing, getting in his way, telling him that hes mean because hes hurting my kid and to stop it and just move over so I could do the surgery. Have you ever performed surgery before? God asked. Um, no. But Ive seen it done on TV. Why dont you go sit in the waiting room? Have some coffee. Read a book. But I can do a much better job than you can, God. Seriously? You seriously think so? Yeah, I do. Actually, God and I have had this same conversation many times, and it always ends the same way. He doesnt hand over the scalpel and I end up in the waiting room, usually after being dragged there, kicking and yelling. A few weeks ago, I ran into a woman who also has a doozy of a son, and she filled me in on what hes been up to. Shes doing a lot of Lamaze breathing these days too, walking around with her heart, intestines and spleen on the outside, riding a rollercoaster, feeling like shes about to throw up. Motherhood aint for sissies, thats for sure. As I listened to the stories from these two moms, I thought about other moms I know who are going through similar times of feeling kidnapped by kid worry and how easy it is to think that Gods mean to let kids hurt. But hes not mean. The pain he lets his kids feel is the pain from the surgery, the surgery that saves their souls. Therefore, the pain is actually his kindness, even though it doesnt look kind. The pain still hurts, and moms who are sitting in the waiting room still feel helpless. But theres hope for moms in waiting. Beckys son recently entered rehab. Shes still in the waiting room, but she now has seen a glimmer of hope, that the surgery is almost over and recovery and restoration is at hand.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 352564-2927 or via email at nkennedy@chronicleonline.c om. Hope for moms in waiting Nancy Kennedy Special to theTimesLetters to the editor Grace notes Job loss wasnt Crists faultHow can Scott claim that Crist lost 600,000 jobs when the loss of jobs worldwide was due to the global recession? Furthermore Scott has fired thousands of state workers and teachers due to his budget cuts in order to give breaks to large corporations. Now Scott is claiming that he has created 600,000 jobs in Florida. Do the math. If the above is true, then Florida is still in the red on jobs. I am amazed that Florida is noted for good jobs. It was my understanding that many of these jobs in Florida are service ones which are low paying and seasonal. Many of those corporations have donated heavily to Scotts campaign. This is why he sacrificed many loyal state workers and teachers jobs in order to give the corporations tax breaks. Sincerely, Michael J. Harris WebsterWithlacoochee River Watershed InitiativeThe initiative contains numerous scenarios of restoration projects which will greatly improve the recharge, storage, and water flow issues from alterations of past years. I was chairman of the Citizens Advisory Committee of the Withlacoochee River Ecosystem Initiative Program, 1996-2000, that was sponsored by the Florida Dept. of Environmental Protection. Within that period of time, I met with hundreds of citizens who identified 100s of issues of concern that I agreed to physically view, research and present to the Management Committee for discussion and possible inclusion into a master Restoration Plan for the watershed. We have arrived! After 15 years of time and unexpected happenings, some of the largest projects are posted and a lot more issues will be addressed. Older and a lot more tired, I smile as I see likewise from those who helped bring this restoration effort to fruition. I wish to thank every person who participated as this effort will become a bench mark plan for all watersheds: Restore natural systems through historical information of science/biology. Together we can make a difference. Please contact your elected officials and encourage participation for increasing water storage/aquifer recharge through restoration of natural systems. Chet Bradshaw Volunteer Environmentalist for Historical RestorationVoters Primary is unfairVoter Primaries are unfair leaving millions of Americans including myself without the candidates we want to run. We are not allowed to vote in any Primaries. If you are not a registered Republican or Democrat then you are not allowed to vote in the Primary. This means those of us who pick our elected official by the issues cannot vote for our candidates. I have never been in either party but go with the officials stance on important issues so people like me never have a chance for the person we want to be elected. Lets face it, we all know most politicians are liars and thieves but even I and those like me should have the right to elect the crook I want in office. Votes do not count because we are not allowed to vote making any election corrupt. Those of us who are not affiliated with either house should have the right to vote in the Primary and not have to decide on one of the two that everyone else picked while the person we wanted is not on the ballot because we were not allowed to vote in the Primary. I myself stopped voting in the last election because since no one was on the ballot I wanted there was no sense in even voting for the two who were just as bad as one another. When all Americans have a right to vote in US elections I will again go and cast my vote but when millions of Americans do not have a right to get their official on the ballot in the Primary then is a corrupt system forcing everyone to only pick certain people and not giving some Americans the same rights as the rest of you proving that Primaries are a fraud and a scam. Primaries need to change and allow every American to vote no matter their affiliation and until this happens it will not be a fair election. Todd Perry BushnellMarijuana referendumQuite obviously the medical marijuana drive has little to do with medical use and more to do with recreational use. The medical use is the ability of using THC which is in marijuana to help relieve pain and stimulate appetites. This pill has been available in the synthetic form for over 15 years. This is not about helping the sick this is a smoke screen to legalize the drug. If you have 20 percent of Floridians hooked on marijuana at the present time, maybe three million and you legalize it and you double that amount you have six million marijuana users in the state. Who is going to support all these people who have difficulty functioning in society? So lets make the November vote easy. If you have a member of your family or a friend who is a user of marijuana and/or alcoholic and their whole life is wasted than vote No! You have seen what this drug does to people, constant use causes brain damage. How could you vote yes? Most of us have seen the results of individuals who due to the continued use of marijuana and alcohol live off relatives or the government. They cant work because they dont have the focus to hold a job, they steal to buy drugs and you cant trust them, period. So the bottom line is if you never seen anyones life destroyed by marijuana and alcohol vote YES with a clear conscience. Be honest with yourself, this is your state and your country. If you want to argue about alcohol versus marijuana, go ahead and waste everyones time and while you are trying to confuse the issue some more kids will get hooked on drugs and alcohol, their lives will be gone, does it really matter which drug it is?

Financial Impact Statement: This amendment does not increase or decrease state revenues. The state revenue restricted to the purposes specified in the amendment is estimated to be $648 million in Fiscal Year 2015-16 and grows to $1.268 billion by the twentieth year. Whether this results in any additional state expenditures depends upon future legislative actions and cannot be determined. Similarly, the impact on local government revenues, if any, cannot be determined. No additional local government costs are expected. Full Text: ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 28.

SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER25, 2014, PAGEA9 FROM THE GROUND UP Question: When picking up the paper from my drive this morning, there was a huge dead bug on the pavement. What is it and will it harm my plants?Answer:This is a big bug. The adult Rice Beetle measures in length. Adults are nocturnal and attracted to lights, in your case a porch or driveway light. They have been known to feed on underground tubers such as caladium bulbs, carrots and radishes. If you find or see a large number (20-30) a pan or bucket of soapy water suspended below a light has been used for control. For more info, see http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in259Question:My crapemyrtle has a lot of small shoots growing from the base of the tree. Should I leave them?Answer:Although crapemyrtles generally require little pruning, suckers or water sprouts may develop from roots. These should be removed when using crapemyrtles as trees. For more information see http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/mg266.Question:Another question on my crapemyrtles. They have a green mossy substance on the trunk. Is it harmful and should I remove it? Answer:There are several things that may be on your tree trunk. They include moss and lichens and neither are a problem for your tree. Moss grows on tree bark because of the shade. Lichens come in many forms and do not cause harm.

Floridastateparks.org/DadebattlefieldDade Battlefield Historic State ParkDade Battlefield, 7200 C.R. 603, Bushnell The UF/IFAS Extension, Sumter County Family and Consumer Science Agent, Martha Maddox along with Dr. Wendy Dahl, UF/IFAS Extension, Assistant Professor, Food Science and Human Nutrition worked with the Farmers Market Restaurant Manager, Brenda Rogers to address a special menu for some of their customers with Dysphagia /swallowing problems. Dysphagia is the medical term for the symptom of difficulty in swallowing. Sufferers are sometimes unaware of their dysphagia. 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. Dysphagia is a topic close to Rogers and she wants to help others. She stated, We have about 10 percent of our customer base that need modified food plus several others in the community that will benefit from our new menu. I am very thankful and appreciative to UF/IFAS Extension for offering this program and including our restaurant in this program. I can relate to this program since several years ago my husband died of throat cancer with dysphagia. This information would have been very helpful to me and now I know how to properly modify foods, I want to share this information and provide modified foods service to those that need it. UF/IFAS Extension Faculty trained Rogers and her staff to properly modify food for individuals with dysphagia or any type of swallowing disorder. The restaurant will prepare special meals upon request for individuals that need them. The employees learned how to conduct a spoon test and that 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. Employees realize eye appeal plays a big role in ones eating experience and the importance of making sure that food items are recognizable. Food molds can be used to mold the food or one can just shape the food so its not mixed together with other foods on the plate. Pureed garnishes can be used to improve presentation and acceptability, making ones eating experience more pleasant. On Monday, Sept. 8, the Dysphagia/ Food Modified Options Menu Program UF/IFAS Extension Faculty, Martha Maddox and Dr. Wendy Dahl have been working with the Farmers Market Restaurant Manager, Brenda Rogers and the Sumter County Farmers Market Board on for the past year was unveiled during a ribbon cutting ceremony. Senator Wilton Simpson joined Rogers and Maddox to cut the ribbon to honor this event, along with Market Manager, Marc Harrell, and board members: Bud Fussell, Jimmy Wall and John Graham and UF/IFAS Extension, Multi-County Extension Director for Hernando and Sumter Counties Dr. Stacy Strickland. This program will address the need and provide individuals with dysphagia or any type of swallowing problem an option when they go out to eat. It will also help educate individuals about the issue and food can be modified that is delicious and eye appealing.For more information on dysphagia or nutrition please contact your local UF/IFAS Extension office or in Sumter County email mmaddox@ufl.edu for Family and Consumer Science Agent Martha Maddox.

They have a new coach, said Sherman. They are trying to start from scratch and it takes time. Raiders take ZhillsIn the meantime, the football folks at Zephyrhills High School may already be thinking about next year. They thought maybe they could beat South Sumter High this year. Sorry Bulldogs. The Raiders offensive line kept blowing the Bulldogs away. Raider running back J.T. Taylor ran through Zephyrhills on 26 attempts for 146 yards and four touchdowns. Two other running backs had over 100 yards. Bokeyon Rice had 111 yards and Isial Flowers ran for 104 yards. South Sumter, now 4-0 and 10 in Class 5A-District 6, showed the Bulldogs a thing or two by beating them 45-10 last Friday in Zephyrhills. The Raiders also had 464 yards on offense. The Bulldogs contributed to their own self-destruction with three turnovers. Zephyrhills is now 3-1 and 01 in district play. Quarterback Reace Kinley hit Bryce Williams for a touchdown pass. Does this sound familiar? The Raiders jumped out to a 21-0 lead. To the Bulldogs credit, they managed to avoid a running clock until midway in the fourth quarter. The offensive line is big and strong, said Sherman. They have some holes to run through. We had a sophomore play his first start. Senior Colton Skipper had a pinched nerve. Israel Andrade took his place. He got stronger as the game went on. Not surprisingly, the Offensive Player of the Week was J.T. Taylor. The Defensive player of the Week was Matthew Simmons, defensive back. He had two solos and three assists, plus an interception, one pass breakup and caused a fumble. Myles Frazier had seven tackles and two pass breakups. Defensively, we really shut them down in the first half, coach Inman Sherman said. We picked up the pace which we really needed to do. Part of the joy of watching a Raiders game is that they usually have the game wrapped up in the first quarter and, if people are lucky, South Sumter will get the running clock going early and give people more time to celebrate.

Sumter County Mounted Reserve is organizing They were established late last year, but theyre just starting to spread their wings, or rather, their hooves. The Sumter County Mounted Reserve is in the process of growing and recruiting new members. Nonriding members are also welcomed. The organization is sponsored by Suncoast Equine Inc., a not-for-profit entity for the advancement of mounted police units and civilian equestrian support organizations. There are more than 30 mounted units working in Florida. Currently, the local unit is hoping local businesses will sponsor some of the equipment needs for the unit. To discuss your business making a charitable contribution that is tax deductible, call 352-279-2505 or following the unit on Facebook at Sumter County Mounted Reserve. Sumter County Mounted Reserve was created by Becky Card Swerdloff, June Brower and Mark Newby of Suncoast Equine (http://www.suncoastequine.c om/) who agreed to be its technical advisor. Newby established Suncoast Equine in Webster after retiring from Key West as the lieutenant for the Mounted Unit. Newby supervised the Key West Mounted Patrol during Fantasy Fest and the day-to-day operations. Suncoast Equine offers basic, advanced, refresher and instructor mounted law enforcement training for both full-time and part-time sworn law enforcement officers, as well as civilian posse members and those who would like to join a posse. The curriculum used is that which was designed by Geiser Equine, Inc. and accepted by the Southern Police Institute at the University of Louisville, Kentucky Law Enforcement Instructor course. Sensory training, formation riding, self defense on horseback and safety education are other courses offered as well as boarding. The Florida Association of Mounted Patrols (FLAMP) http://www.flamp.org/ is a notfor-profit entity, sponsored by Suncoast Equine Inc., for the advancement of mounted police units and civilian equestrian support organizations. Becky Card Swerdloff, president, is a retired Miami Dade police officer who worked as a mounted patrol officer in Miami patrolling beaches, Hud housing units, Miami Lakes and field force assignments. Becky moved to North Florida in 2000, and in 2004 help create the first Hernando Mounted Unit since the 1970s. She has competed for years and has her instructor rating. June Brower, vice president, has been riding for 20 years and is a founding board member of Florida Forever Back Country Horsemans Association aka FFBCH.Org. that works with forestry and local governments to preserve and protect public lands for horse riders. June and her husband, Todd, also did horse rescue at her ranch. They took in starving horses and rehabilitated them back to good homes. June works with other local horse clubs to promote all horse interests in the community. Swerdloff and Brower are hoping horse owners and non riders will join Sumter County Mounted Reserve because it is a bit different than other units. The group has 20 members currently. Volunteers are free to choose what type of events they volunteer for. There is no mandatory obligation to serve at any event. Training is key for safe riding during public events. Establishing a drill team, search and rescue training, obstacle training, parade training and patrolling public events and parking lots, and even cattle rescue will be training venues. Sumter County Mounted Reserve is available to all businesses, schools, police and fire departments for any events. The unit also provides the black riderless horse for funerals and memorials. There are training competitions year round for mounted units which we attend to train with other mounted units.

change artists entertained the crowds. Cotton candy, salted peanuts and keepsakes added to the fun in the centers open-air gym. Sumter Youth director Della Boushley said she enjoyed watching The look of entertainment and joy, even on the adult faces. It was a good feeling, watching all that as well as the benefit that the youth center is getting from the proceeds. The center makes 50percent of all advanced ticket sales, with 20-percent of the gate general admission and children get in free. Boushley was also happy that, without any prompting, two elementary school children took the time to go back and thank Loomis for the show. The center began partnering with the circus years ago, when resident Tina Andes served on the youth center board. Because the circus winters in Bushnell and Franzens stepson, Brian, has the animals it provided the option for pairing. The circus brought in just under $3,000 for the center last year, which is only about 10 percent of the centers entire budget. In the past, the funds from the circus has helped to provide partial and some full scholarships to the center. The center is a safe place to be for children, according to Boushley. The center provides homework assistance, computer lab and can help take stress off. Typically, homework is already done by the time parents pick their children up from the center and it allows them more time with the family. Were hoping that were improving the quality of life, here and at home, Boushley said in an earlier interview.PAGEA14SUMTERCOUNTY(FL) TIMES, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER25, 2014 SAR003086TO PLACE A CLASSIFIED AD, CALL TOLL FREE 1-877-676-1403 MONDAY-FRIDAY 8:00 AM-5 PM (DEADLINE 11:00 AM TUESDAY) CLASSIFIEDSCANCELLATIONSAdvertisements may be canceled as soon as results are obtained.

In a bipartisan effort to strengthen and extend existing federal laws that protect companion animals in domestic abuse cases, U.S Representatives Katherine Clark (DMA) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) together have introduced the Pet and Women Safety (PAWS) Act (H.R. 5267) It is well documented that victims of domestic abuse usually extends beyond women and children, and include household pets. Seventy one percent of women in abusive homes have reported that their abusers have injured or killed their pets. Because very few domestic violence shelters are able to provide shelter for companion animals, women are reluctant to leave their pets behind. Without a safe haven for their pets, women may delay leaving a dangerous situation because they fear for their pets safety. The PAWS Act, if passed, would authorize federal grant funding to provide emergency sheltering for pets in domestic violent situations. The legislation recommends states include legal protections for pets in court issued protective orders, and would make it a punishable offense if abusers cross state lines to harm the pets of their victims. The Act also includes restitution for veterinarian costs to be reimbursed to the victims. The resources the PAWS Act will provide to victims of domestic violence, both human and their treasured pets, will provide the security women need to leave a dangerous situation knowing that their companion animals will be safely sheltered too. Please contact your local representatives and ask them to support this very important legislation. (H.R. 5267) the PAWS Act, must be passed for the protection of ALL victims Linda Graves Humane Society Buddy is a four-year-old dachshund. He does well with other dogs and has a great personality.
