If Carlos Marxauch jumped out of a plane, would you jump out too? It almost sounds like something a parent might ask their wayward teen, who just got caught swimming in the public fountain or racing down the highway. And for the Zarlenga brothers, the answer is yes not to the public swimming in the fountain or the illegal racing, but rather to plane jumping as paratroopers for the United States Army. Hes my best good friend, said Robert Zarlenga of Center Hill resident Marxauch. Then Robert smiled with humor and admitted to stealing the line from Forrest Gump. On a more serious note, Hes my mentor, like family. It was being around Marxauch that made Robert and his younger brother Brandon want to follow in his footsteps to join the military, to be Brandon Zarlenga 204 E.

During the upcoming weeks, the Sumter County Times will publish information about each of the murders. BOB REICHMAN/Sumter County TimesSumter County Sheriff Bill Farmer stands next to a chart displaying suspects targeted in Summer Sweep, a three-month-long investigation aimed at sweeping local crime off Sumter streets. More than 30 suspects were arrested during the operation which included assistance from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The operation culminated last Wednesday with additional suspects apprehended during the past weekend. Arrests continued this past weekend as the Sumter County Sheriffs Office rounded up four more suspects as part of its three-month investigation termed Operation Summer Sweep. Within the first 30 minutes of enacting Operation Summer Sweep last week, eight suspects in Lake Panasoffkee had been arrested. By the end of the day, Wednesday, Aug. 10, 34 suspects accused of either selling drugs or selling alcohol to minors had been arrested with warrants out for the arrest of nine more. The charges ranged from trafficking in controlled substances to sale of an alcoholic beverage to a minor. During the operation, detectives seized oxycodone, cocaine, hydrocodone, methamphetamines, Xanax, marijuana, methadone, prescription drugs and other illegal street level narcotics It was no coincidence that the Sumter County Sheriffs Office Special Investigations Squad, with the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, launched the sweep the same day that Sumter public schools started back up in session. Officers wanted to ensure the safety of kids during the arrest sweep and having them back in school provided a safer environment, sad sheriffs Lt. Bobby Caruthers. B OB R EICHMAN Editor See SWEEP Page 8 Robert Preston More weekend arrests See MENTOR, Page 7 While out on routine patrol about 1 p.m. on May 7, 2006, a Bushnell police officer thought he saw something shiny alongside County Road 311W, just west of Interstate 75, in Bushnell. It looked like waxed paper from a distance, the officer reported. But what the officer believed to be waxed paper turned out to be something completely unexpected. It was the back of a decomposing body that the officer saw beside the wooded, remote country road. On closer examination, the officer said the mans badly decomposed body was face down, clad in sweatpants, white tennis shoes and a T-shirt. His feet were crossed at the ankles and both arms were tucked under the body. The officer reported his discovery to the Sumter County Sheriffs Office and an investigation was launched. A wallet was found at the site and investigators identified the man as 30-year-old St. Petersburg resident Robert Lee Preston. Preston had been shot multiple times, according to the sheriffs office cold case file. Investigators believe Preston was shot at a different location and then dumped in Sumter County. The body appeared to have been dragged into the underbrush because Prestons shirt appeared pulled up close to his face.

During the Aug. 9 LSCC District Board of Trustees meeting, members unanimously voted that LSCC will expand its academic programs to include four-year degrees. LSCCs four criteria for choosing a bachelors degree program are (1) Lake and Sumter counties workforce needs, (2) student interest, (3) college assets such as facilities, personnel and financial resources, and (4) partner relationships. The college engaged the community on multiple levels in order to determine what types of degrees are needed. Student, faculty and advisory committee surveys and focus groups were conducted. Further study by the college administration and input from the Board of Trustees led to the prioritization of the following three degrees: Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Applied Science in Organizational Management and Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Science. Lake-Sumter Community College now embarks on a lengthy approval process designed by the State of Florida to ensure that new degree programs demonstrate that they meet the needs in the area to be served, have sufficient demand, and are not similar to programs offered by other higher education institutions in the region. LSCCs strong longstanding commitment to the regional strategy for higher educational planning was established in 2005, as a founding member of a Consortium including the University of Central Florida, Brevard Community College, Seminole State College and Valencia College. LSCC President Charles Mojock said,. We are excited about this new stage in the growth and development of our institution, and we look forward to meeting the communitys needs for access to new bachelors degrees.

The City of Bushnell is preparing to Rock Around the Clock this fall, with some help from supporters. The city is gearing up for its annual fall festival using a 1950s theme for the day. The event is set for Saturday, Oct. 15. While the date is still months away, organizers are already planning and registration deadlines have been set. This year, there will be some changes to the festival. Because of the current economic downturn and increasing costs associated with putting on the event, the City Council recently agreed to make some changes to the festival. First off, the city is looking for volunteers to assist at the event. Persons interested in sharing their time should contact Ruby Mark, fall festival committee member, at 793-3907. Currently, entertainment is being finalized, Mark said. But we do need volunteers to help judge the parade and other contests. We also need volunteers to help hand out maps of the event. Mark said volunteers are also needed to assist setting up before the event and cleaning up afterwards. For the past 26 years, the City of Bushnell has funded the daylong event. Even with local donors and attempts to keep costs down, the city typically ends up with a bill for $25,000 or more for the event. To offset that expense, the City Council has agreed to some changes to ease the financial burden: The 2011 Fall Festival Parade will begin at 10:30 a.m. instead of 9:30 a.m. as in previous years. There will now be some entry fees for parade participants. Non-profit groups, school organizations, political, and pageant participants will pay $5 per entry. All businesses will pay $10 per entry. There will also be a $25 entry fee for those entry vehicles wishing to be judged. The parade theme is a Rock Around The Clock. One of the biggest changes to the Fall Festival this year is that vendor applications will be limited solely to businesses and organizations within Sumter County. The decision was made in an effort to help boost the local economy and businesses. Here are some other noteworthy changes to the event: The hours of the festival will be shortened. This will alleviate a lot of over-time pay for city personnel needed to work the event. The parade will kick off at 10:30 a.m. and the street dance will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The arrangement of a food court will change where all food vendors, large and small, will be placed around a square block, with covered eating areas in the center of them. There will be no fireworks, one of the largest expenses to the city in past years. Booth space rentals have been increased, anywhere from $20 to $500, depending on the type of booth. The additional revenue will help to cushion the costs of electrical usage by the city during the festival, City Council members agreed. A vendor application form is available at the city website: cityofbushnellfl.com. Hopefully, by implementing these changes, we will be able to continue holding our beloved festival each year, Mark said. The size and feel of the festival will revert back to its roots, when it was smaller and more intimate, consisting mainly of local residents and businesses gathering to celebrate the birth of our great city.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 18, 2011 Operation should be Summer Screw Up T he Sumter County Sheriffs Office has some substantial apologizing to do. Last weeks operation Summer Sweep probably should have been labeled Summer Screw Up. The operation was the culmination of a three-month investigation aimed at sweeping communities of drugs and other crimes. Unfortunately, it did a lot more than that. Many of the suspects arrested by the sheriffs office ended up victims themselves because of a computer error that inaccurately added erroneous charges on top of the actual charges filed against them. Those erroneous charges ended up on the arrest information that was provided to media sources during a press conference last Thursday. Because there was no way for the various press sources to know the charges were inaccurate, some media published the story containing the wrong charges the day after the press conference. Unfortunately, the error was not caught by the sheriffs office until after those stories appeared in print. The day after the press conference, Friday, the sheriffs office issued a revised list containing the correct charges. Those charges were corrected before weekly news sources went to press. But, for many, the damage had already been done. Communities are buzzing about the incident. For example, suspects who were only supposed to be arrested for selling alcohol to minors had other erroneous drug charges listed. Those people now have to explain the inaccurate charges to people they work with and know. We understand that computers make mistakes. But this is a mistake that never should have happened. A more thorough check of the charges should have been made before the media was provided with the arrest list. The outfall from this error is not sitting well throughout the county and has really put a damper on this entire operation and casts an angry eye at the sheriffs office. Remembering a very special lady, Ivy JonesMs. Ivy came to the clinic several years ago, even before we opened our doors; when we were fundraising, to share her love of animals. At that time there was only a thrift shop where people in the community gathered for some scuttlebutt and browsing while looking for a hidden treasure on the shelves. All the proceeds went to the building fund of a lowcost spay and neuter clinic. Ms. Ivy was always eager to help and began knitting colorful blankets for pets and donating them to our project for sale. Over the years she continued to visit the facility bringing her beloved pets for medical care and many blankets for donation. In fact, the number blankets donated reached nearly 80 or a sale value of $600. What a wonderful gift and how grateful we are for those knitted expressions of love our customers took home with them for their pets. Please log onto our website carescenter.com and click on volunteer news to see a smiling picture of Ms. Ivy with her dog, Rambo. We will miss her. In memory,The Cares Center Lake PanasoffkeeYour Humane Society/SPCA Upon reading of the most current activities occurring with the Humane Society of Florida, formerly known as the Humane Society of Inverness, which recently moved into Sumter County, we felt the need to clarify the difference between our organization, theirs or any other. The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. is not related to any other Humane Society or rescue group operating in Sumter County. We are further not related to, under the direction of or beneficiary of funding from any national Humane, SPCA or rescue group such as HSUS (Humane Society of the United States) or ASPCA nor are we part of the Sumter County Animal Control Dept. All too often the public confuses us with the countys Animal Control staff. We are a nonprofit volunteer-based organization which operates solely on donations while Sumter Countys Animal Control Dept. operates via Sumter County residents tax dollars. In addition, the public often believes that their monetary donation or membership to a national organization trickles down to chapters. There are no chapters. All we share is the common name of a humane society or SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) for our community. We have our own Board of Directors, by-laws and mission statement. 2012 will celebrate 30 years of proud service for our Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County. Our 5-acre property in Lake Panasoffkee is the home of our office, barn and future animal shelter. Our Board of Directors is all Sumter County residents or workers. Our corps of volunteers is mostly Sumter county residents with a few from nearby Lake and Marion counties. We provide animal rescue and adoptions with the help of our fostering network. Our goal is to receive the necessary funds to achieve our goal, an animal shelter within Sumter County. In order to assist low income Sumter County residents and their pets, thanks to donations from our community and grants awarded, we provide free spay/neuter services with the intention to reduce the euthanasia rate of homeless pets. We also conduct pet food drives in order to prevent owner surrender of beloved pets in times of financial hardship. In these areas and many more, we provide the citizens of our county with humane and protective services to injured, lost, abused and neglected animals. We do not purchase animals from out of state puppy mills, bring them into Sumter and further add to the problem of pet overpopulation here. We do our best to address as many requests for help within Sumter County yet sadly we cannot provide assistance to all that come to us since the need is continuously increasing. We do not want any confusion to exist in the minds of our county commissioners, administrators or its citizens between the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. and any other organizations using similar names or operating within Sumter County. With our sincere gratitude for the continued support from our community,Claudia Labbe Chairman of the Board The Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. www.hsspca.orgLetter of thanks My wife Judy Ann Reid Woodard lost her battle with cancer and slipped into heaven the second of August, 2011. Although we miss her terribly, she is no longer held in the grip of pain that ravaged her body night and day. She left the bonds of this world in a room filled with family and friends who were praying, singing and loving on her. It was such a lovely and peaceful way to leave this earth. I would like to take this time to thank our friends and family for all the love and support they have displayed in the many months that my wife Judy battled her cancer. Contributions poured in from all over and helped tremendously with the cost of transportation to and from treatments. I cant express enough, my heartfelt thanks to each and everyone. I wish to thank a few by name. Our daughter Loretta left her home, job and family in West Virginia to be with her mom for treatments. Loretta took her mom to many weeks of radiation and chemo treatments as well as countless doctors appointments. I would also like to thank Lorettas husband Johnny Spencer and the children of the patients that allowed his wife to spend so much time with her mom. Judys sister, Penny and Homer Lancaster, graciously made room for us to stay at their spacious home in Sumterville. Our home was just too small to accommodate the traffic of visitors that Judy had; one Sunday alone, Penny counted 48 visitors! Judy is so loved! My father and mother-in-law, Dan and Audrey Baker provided their car for Judys comfort back and forth to appointments. They also allowed us to use their large, centrally located yard to host a fundraising yard sale. Mom and our son, Jesse, spent many afternoons at our house watching after Judy while I worked. My brother-inlaw Wendell Reid and his fiance, Terry, helped in many ways including a fundraising barbecue. Our nieces and nephews helped with cooking, cleaning and just any task that was needed; their help is greatly appreciated. He even put a railing on the back of our deck so Judy could use a power Making after-school hours safe T he American Red Cross has steps parents and children can take to make these after-school hours safer and less stressful. The first thing parents need to decide is if their child is old enough to stay home alone, said Dr. David Markenson, chair of the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council and pediatric expert. If not, other options include after-school child care, programs at schools and youth clubs or enrolling the child in youth sports programs. When a child is old enough will vary from child to child based on their individual development, comfort and maturity. Parents and guardians should consider their childs maturity level and ask if he or she would be comfortable being left alone for an extended period of time, Markenson added. If so, parents and guardians should develop a home safety plan and discuss it and practice it with their children. The Red Cross recommends that parents and guardians take the following steps if a child will be home alone after school. If the child is going to go home after school, its a good idea to have them call to check in when they get home. For an older child, set ground rules about whether other kids can come over when the parents are absent, whether cooking is an option, whether they can leave the home. Other steps that parents and guardians can include in their home safety plans: Post an emergency phone list where the children can see it. Include 9-1-1, the parents work and cell numbers, numbers for neighbors, and the numbers for anyone else who is close and trusted. Identify neighbors whose home your child can go to in case of an emergency that requires your child to leave your home. Practice an emergency plan with the child so they know what to do in case of fire, injury, or other emergencies. Write the plan down and make sure the child knows where it is. Make sure the first aid kit is stocked and stored where your children can find it; keep it out of reach of young children. Let children know where the flashlights are kept. Make sure that the batteries are fresh, and that the child knows how to use them. Remove or safely store in locked areas dangerous items like guns, ammunition, knives, hand tools, power tools, razor blades, scissors, and other objects that can cause injury. Make sure potential poisons like detergents, polishes, pesticides, car-care fluids, lighter fluid and lamp oils are stored in locked cabinets or out of the reach of children. Make sure medicine is kept in a locked storage place or out of the reach of children. Install safety covers on all unused electrical outlets. Limit any cooking a young child can do. Make sure at least one approved smoke alarm is installed and operating on each level of the home. Limit the time the child spends in front of the television or computer. Activate parental controls. Use programs that limit the sites children can visit, restrict chat sites and allow parents to monitor online activity.

They had been busy collecting much needed school supplies for our back to school students here in Sumter County and today, Aug. 8 was the day to deliver. Our President Laura Lago visited and met with Executive Director Della Boushley and delivered school supplies and backpacks to several students at the Sumter County Youth Center. It was a day that brought joy not only to the members of the Ladies Auxiliary but most important it brought smiles and many thanks from the students that received the backpacks filled with school supplies. Sumter County Youth Center is a non-profit, community based organization serving the social service needs of youth and families on the north and south ends of Sumter County. Since 2001 SCYC has been a joint project of Sumter County community leaders and the United Way and has grown to serve hundreds of youth and families throughout the Sumter area. Giving back to our community is very important to the Ladies and they worked very hard in getting donations of school supplies. We thank all who donated. It means that we are helping our youngest community members get the solid start they need to excel in their studies.

paratroopers like him. Hes modest, respectful, honorable, said Robert of Marxauch. He never pushed, but he let us know he said, adding that they saw who he was as a person. They were able to listen to his stories and adventures and while he never bragged about his successes, they could see his awards when they looked at his uniform. While Robert and Brandon are just beginning their careers, Marxauch is now at the master level and retired from the military, though he volunteers for some events. Marxauch has about 70 career jumps. The boys became acquainted with the medaled soldier by doing lawn work for him during the hurricane season several years ago. Theyre a little bit opposites in behavior, said Marxauch of the brothers. Brandon is more laid back the thinker. Bobby is more active, he said. He takes such pride in the boys, I would like those two kids to have been my sons. He said theyre respectful, get good grades and are both ambitious. They built a relationship of respect and a bond that continues to be close today. One of the first things Robert did when he came home on leave last month was contact Marxauch. They spent the day together, running errands and chatting military. Hes like a son to me, Marxauch said of Robert, who was in the other room at the time. Hes a good soldier, good leadership qualities, and hes motivated. Robert passed on a chance for the Citadel and graduating as an officer. Originally, it was a choice Marxauch wasnt thrilled with, but hes come around and now points out the benefits. Working your way up you get a different perspective, he said, adding that he thinks the experience will make Robert an even better officer. He said the younger man will have lived the life of a soldier and will have more empathy with the troops when he becomes an officer. From here, Robert plans to attend warrant officer school for one month training, then go for at least a years training as a helicopter pilot. I knew I had to make it through the school, Robert said. Then with a grin and a glance toward Marxauch, he said if not, it would be tough to show my face. If I can do it, you can do it, Robert quoted his mentor as saying. And he did do it. Robert was pinned in 2009. Brandon was pinned this year. Robert was also pleased when it came time to be pinned. He had Marxauch make the trip to pin him. If youre second generation, youre among the first to step forward and be pinned, he said. I had to hurry up and run up there, he said. This year, it was younger brother Brandons turn. Unfortunately, Marxauch was unable to make it so Robert pinned the jump wings on his younger brother, passing on a tradition. The jump wings are forerunners of the special unit wings out now. Theyre the first ones out there. Since the s, Robert said. Right now, Robert is stationed in North Carolina, a member of the 82nd Airborne and Brandon is in Germany in the 173rd. They are slated to go overseas together soon. As for that first jump, there was no choice, no time to change his mind. I was the second guy out the door, and it all came from training and muscle memory, he said. Your heart jumps out your throat and you jump out the door. Besides the fact that its hot and cramped inside the plane and you just want out, he added. Their jumps can range from landing with their rucksacks and weapons to finding supplies after landing spread out, in the dark everything from regular supplies to Humvees. Just the rucksack on their legs and their weapons, tucked up under their arms, easily weigh more than 60 pounds.

My co-workers at the Sumter County School Board are so awesome and made it possible for me to be with Judy whenever I was needed including the last week of her life. Our pastor Dan Richwine and our whole church family of Sumterville First Assembly of God provided much-needed spiritual support, especially the youth group who showed up in force to sing and pray for Judy. The last two weeks of Judys life we never once had to cook. The thoughtfulness of our friends knows no bounds; feature nightly in such quantities that we had to start scheduling days. Thank you so much for all the food you sent it didnt stop until after Judys Celebration of Life Ceremony. Ray and Melinda Lancaster and family showed up nightly to get the food ready and clean up afterward and I so appreciate them. I am so thankful that we have such a great support structure in place, I would hate it to have been just Judy and me going to this battle alone. May God richly bless each and everyone of you,Her devoted husband Jesse E.

During a press conference last Thursday, Sheriffs Bill Farmer emphasized that the operation has not ended and that more arrests will be made. This operation will never stop, he said. If youre selling drugs in Sumter County, we will not tolerate it. Many of the arrests during the three-month undercover operation were the result of tips provided to the sheriffs office by residents concerned about suspicious activities in their neighborhoods, Farmer said. We want to thank the people for calling when they suspect illegal activity, he said. Summer Sweep comes on the heels of a drug sweep earlier this year where 15 Sumter County residents were indicted for their part in a methamphetamine drug ring that operated from Mexico to several southern states and included being transported to Sumter County. In all, more than $200,000 worth of cocaine and methamphetamines were seized during that operation. Editors note: The day after the press conference, the sheriffs office alerted media sources that due to a computer error, some of the suspects arrested during Summer Sweep were incorrectly listed with additional crimes they had not committed. For daily media, the corrected list of charges came too late to revise the erroneous charges before publication. The list was corrected by the time weekly media sources went to press.

CUTTING THE RIBBON ...
Ever wanted to learn how to shoot a bow and arrow? Fish? How about kayak? This year, dozens of women from around Central Florida learned to kayak thanks to the Women in the Outdoors program and Mary Morgan of A Crystal River Kayak Company, Inc. The program is part of the National Wild Turkey Federations effort to preserve natural habitats and heritage and the organization hosts an event designed to provide women with new experiences in the outdoors. This year, more than 60 women from around Central Florida took part in the program under the leadership of Morgan. A couple of years ago an instructor cancelled from another group, said Morgan, explaining how she became involved with the National Wild Turkey Federation. She currently serves on the committee of the Sumter County Longbeards, the Sumter County chapter of the federation. They needed an instructor and I was able to take some kayaks over, she said of that first experience. At least three other committee members took part in this years event, including Webster resident Shirley Parker. I loved it, she said. Several of us had never been kayaking before. Instructors taught the women safety techniques, what to do if the kayak tips and how to get in, how to get out. Parker said before her experience all she could picture was the character from the Laugh-In show that used to ride the tricycle and tip over, but she has a different perspective since her training. It was fun and Id go again in a heartbeat, she said. While they actually travelled less than a quarter mile during the day, Morgans operation offered a sunset paddle that some of the women took on. Unfortunately a storm was rolling in, so Morgan said they only managed to kayak for about an hour before lightning ended the trip. They made it as far as Three Sisters Spring, Morgan said. Instructors donated their time and a nearby kayak company added 10 of their boats to Morgans stock to accommodate the group. The ladies were able to get their lesson in for $25 a person, while Morgan said she typically gives a formal lesson for $40 a person. Several vendors were on hand exhibiting their wares and Jimmy Brown and the Life Pirates performed. They worked to make the day an event, rather than just a lesson. Parker and her sister Sandra Coleman attended with another Sumter committee member, Kathy Brannen. Morgan and all three of the women recently coordinated and organized the annual Sumter County Longbeards banquet (the event is their main fundraiser for supporting their youth program and assisting the government agencies with preservation). Several items are donated for auction, bid and prizes. Ironically, Coleman won a kayak at the event. The craft was donated by Morgan and the sisters are ready to return to the water. While nothings definite yet, Morgan said shes considering another Women in the Outdoors kayak event for next March possibly down the Suwannee River. Morgans kayak company is located on U.S. 19, just north of Fort Island Trail in the Quonset hut. Its fun and its easy to do, but I highly recommend anyone that kayaks to take a lesson, she said. Often people have been kayaking for years, but have never had a lesson. Morgan said they dont believe they need one, but when she grabs a paddle and begins showing various strokes, many change their minds. Shes owned the business since 2005. She said she enjoyed kayaking and one day she thought, This might make a good business. Meanwhile, the Sumter County Longbeards have two fall events planned. The first is a Turkey Shoot at the Sumter County Fairgrounds on Saturday, Sept. 10. Then, as dove season opens, Parker and her husband Lamar will host a dove shoot. The Parkers will provide the field and barbecue. Particpants pay $75 each for the hunt and all proceeds will go to the Sumter County Longbeards. For more information, call Parker at 352-793-4822 or for more on Women in the Outdoors, call Morgan at 352795-2255.

should stress the following steps, and post them somewhere to remind the child about what they should, or shouldnt, do until mom, dad or caregiver get home: Lock the door and make sure all the windows are closed and locked. If the home has an electronic security system, children should learn how to turn it on and have it on when home alone. Never open the door to strangers. Always check before opening the door to anyone, looking out through a peephole or window first. Only open the door for people that parents and guardians have given you permission to let in the house. If unsure, contact your caregiver. Never open the door to delivery people or service representatives. Ask delivery people to leave the package at the door or tell them to come back at another time. Service representatives, such as a TV cable installer, should have an appointment when an adult is home. Never tell someone on the telephone that the parents are not at home. Say something like He or she is busy right now. Can I take a message? Do not talk about being home alone on public websites. Kids should be cautious about sharing information about their location when using chat rooms or posting on social networks. Never leave the house without permission. If its okay to go outside, children should contact their parents and tell them where they are going, when they are leaving, and when they will return. If mom and dad are still at work, children should call them when they leave and when they return home. Do not go outside to check out an unusual noise. If the noise worries the child, they should call their parents, an adult, or the police. Dont talk to strangers. Do not have friends over to visit when your parents arent at home. Do not let anyone inside who is using drugs or alcohol, even if you know them. If the child smells smoke or hears a fire or smoke alarm, they should get outside and ask a neighbor to call the fire department. Consider Babysitters Training for Youth Taking Care of Others Many tweens and teens are responsible for watching younger siblings. The Red Cross Babysitters Training course provides 11 to 15 yearolds with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and responsibly provide care for children and infants. Participants learn basic child care and first aid, develop leadership skills and learn how to develop a babysitting business. Contact your local Red Cross or visit www.redcross.org/babysitting for more information.

Some are beginning to question that label because The Villages Democrat Club filled the largest meeting room at the Colony Cottage Recreation Center with 400 enthusiastic Democrats. People were lined up at 8:15 a.m. to attend an event that was scheduled for 10. Unfortunately, many were turned away. According to Larry Shipley, president of The Democratic Club of the Villages this number of attendees is strong evidence that there is a large active community of loyal Democrats and like-thinking Americans in the Villages. The Villages is viewed by many as a Republican environment. However, there are more than 11,000 registered Democrats in The Villages, and they are well represented in the Democratic Club, which is growing in number daily. Currently our membership exceeds 450 active participants. Alan Grayson was the special guest of the Villages Democratic Club. He was introduced by Joseph Flynn, Program Chairman as: The Congressman with Guts. The crowd gave Grayson several long standing ovations in response to his often humorous explanation of what it means to be a Democrat. All you need is a Head and a Heart. Alan Grayson gained a national reputation when in a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, he said that the Republican Health Care Plan was, Dont get sick, and if you do, die quickly. As promised at the close of the meeting, Larry Shipley, president of The Democratic Club of the Villages announced that The Florida Obama Fundraising Campaign has selected The Villages to kick off the 2012 fundraising events for President Obama. On Aug. 25, .Congresswoman and Democratic Party Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other invited public guests and national officials will be holding an invitation only fundraising rally here in the Villages. This event is open to all Democrats, Independents and like-minded voters who support the reelection of President Obama. A donation is required to attend this event and reservations can be made by going to the clubs website www.thevillagesdemocrats.com or contacting Larry Shipley or Joseph Flynn. The Villages Democrat Club filled the largest meeting room at the Colony Cottage Recreation Center with 400 enthusiastic Democrats.

P AGE 12SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY A UGUST 18, 2011 Anglers on Lake Panasoffkee 301 Anglers Bass Fishing 274 Bass caught 398 Bass Released 381 Pan Fish Caught 413 Fishing reports and tournament results: The following is a continuation of a series of information on bass fishing that I began last week. Enjoy! Feeding Habits of the Largemouth Bass: The newly hatched largemouth bass feed heavily on tiny crustaceans and other zooplankton until the bass reach 2 inches in length. Then their appetite changes to insects and smaller fish. The adult basss diet consists mainly of fish, but crayfish, worms, frogs, and insects are important foods in some waters. The bass ranks very highly in the aquatic food chain. A bass 10 inches or longer has very few enemies and will eat almost anything it can swallow. Because of the basss large mouth and flexible stomach it can eat prey nearly half its own length. They usually grab large prey, then turn the food to swallow it headfirst. So if youre using large shiners, frogs, or salamanders you should give the fish ample time before setting the hook. But if youre using small bait or small lures you need to set the hook immediately upon the strike, since the bass inhales its smaller food by opening its mouth quickly, sucking water (and the bait) into its mouth. It then expels the water through its gills and at the same instant decides whether it will swallow or expel the food. They can expel the bait just as fast as they inhaled it. As the water temperature warms up, the metabolism of the bass increases and they feed more often. They seldom eat at water temperatures below 50 degrees F. From 50 68 degrees, their feeding increases and from 68 80 degrees they feed heavily. But when the water temperature rises above 80 degrees their feeding declines. Bass growth depends highly on the length of the growing season and their water conditions. They tend to grow much faster in southern lakes than in the colder waters of the northern areas, but they usually live quite as long as their northern counterparts. In the warmer waters of the South a largemouth may reach 10 years while in the colder waters of the North they may live as long as 15 years. The female bass usually lives longer than the male. Largemouth Bass Spawning Habits: The Largemouth Bass gets ready to spawn in the spring, when the inshore water temperature reaches about 60 degrees F. Their typical spawning area is located in shallow bays, backwaters, channels and other areas protected from the prevailing winds. They usually look for areas with firm bottoms of sand, gravel, mud or rock, and usually in water from 1 4 feet deep. But in some cases of very clear water they will be in deeper water. Actual spawning takes place when the water temperature reaches between 63 58 degrees. The female will lay from 2000 to 7000 eggs per pound of her body weight. She will deposit her eggs in either one nest or can deposit them in several different nests, after which she leaves the area and returns to deeper water to recuperate. Once in the deeper water she will remain there for several weeks without eating. Once the eggs are laid, the male guards the nest (or nests) and refuses to eat until the eggs hatch. But will pick up slowly moving objects and move them off the nest. And will attack fast moving objects near the nest. Panfish are the bass fishs worst enemy during spawning. The small schools of panfish will surround the nest and when the male leaves the nest to chase off one of the panfish, the rest will swarm in and indulge on the bass eggs. An area with a very high population of panfish can hamper bass reproduction tremendously. Bass fish eggs hatch in only 2 days if the water temp is at 72 degrees, but take 5 days at 67 degrees. From 2000 to 12,000 eggs hatch from the typical nest, and of all these only 5 10 are likely to survive to reach 10 inches in length. The male will then guard and protect the fry until they reach about an inch in length and then abandon them. And after this point he will also eat any fry he encounters. I have added several newspapers to my distribution list to gain some exposure outside of Florida. As previously reported, as a member of the Tourist Development Council for Sumter County, we have rightfully so entitled Sumter County as the Bass Fishing Capital of Central Florida. For those of you who do not know, Lake Panasoffkee was one of the most popular bass lakes in the nation during the s and s and the lake became in need of a restoration to clean up undesirable vegetation, etc. After years of meetings and legislative approvals by the State of Florida along with other entities such as the Army Corp of Engineers, the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission and the Southwest Florida Water Management District the 5,500 acre Spring Fed Lake was completely restored with a cost of approximately $30 million dollars. Today it is one of the most beautiful and productive lakes to fish in Florida. The lake is bordered on the East side by the Lake Panasoffkee Wildlife Management Area that is loaded with whitetail deer, wild hogs, ospreys, and bald eagles. Tracys Point Fishing Lodge as well as Sumter County is a family-oriented environment. We have eight rustic bug free and clean cabins that provide a beautiful view of the lake all of our cabins are fully furnished with full size refrigerators, coffee makers, microwave ovens as well as full size ranges. In addition, they are air conditioned and have cable television along with wireless Internet. Lake Panasoffkee is a small community but has a nice grocery store and several nice restaurants. It is a very relaxing place to visit, however you will be within an hours drive from Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Epcot Center and a plethora of other attractions. Tampa is an hours drive South of Tracys Point and is home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, The Tampa Bay Lightning and Legends Field spring training will be taking place during March the same time as our major bass tournament. Some Things Fishy at Tracys Point Fishing Lodge Fishing Report, news and tournament results for week ending Aug. 18 By Donna and Steve Lind Timmy Wright was out frog giging with his dad and got 48 frogs.

Larry Smith was fishing on the Point and caught this nice 3lb Bass. Larry is a member of the local moose club that is a big sponsor for our kids fishing tournament. Lamar Miller was at it again last Thursday and caught a couple of nice bass. He was fishing on the South East side of the lake using a watermelon seed worm. Dan Ethridge was out on the lake fishing with friends and caught these nice Bass, about 2lbs and Dan caught them on a June bug frog on the south end of the lake.
