    Sumter County schools off on Monday
    I left a voicemail and sent an email for the Senior Director of the Curriculum & Instructional Programs Department on the Sumter County school board in regards to my concern about the schools being closed for Monday, November 10th in observance of Veterans Day. I have not heard back a reply as of yet.

    Voter suppression,    discrimination or just plain apathy
    Here is update of the unfortunate situation that has developed in Sumter County.
    On Oct. 29, the chairman of the Sumter County Commission denied a request of the Sumter County Supervisor of Elections to utilize The Sumter Transit system to provide transit to the polls for registered voters.
    This has a significant impact on the more than 23,000 voters living outside of The Villages Community Development Districts.

    Need help in Panasoffkee
    I would like to know why there are not more police in Lake Pan.
    Drug use, sales of, break ins and theft are out of control in my neighbor. From what I’m told by SCSD they have only one officer in our area at night.
    That’s when a lot of the trouble happens. People dress in heavy dark camo on the hottest of nights, roaming the streets all night long. We need help!
    I don’t know what else to do. SCSD is quick to respond but as soon as they drive off it starts again.

    Some road rave
    I’d like to take a moment to give a heartfelt Thank You to Mr. Terry Yoder of T&D Concrete who noticed my Jeep overheating recently near Lake Panasoffkee on Hwy 44.
    Mr. Yoder in his truck and two of his Fleet Staff in theirs promptly purchased a radiator hose for me and installed it in minutes so I could safely be on my way.

    Job loss wasn’t Crist’s fault
    How 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.

    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. (FPCL).
    We would like to hold the event this year on October 31st but we need more able-bodied volunteers for several jobs.
    It takes a great deal of effort to pull this event together and many former helpers are unable to assist us any longer. You do not need to be a member of the Friends to help!

    Scouts seek helpers
    During Girl Scouts of West Central Florida’s (GSWCF) peak registration time—which is happening now (back-to-school)—it has had as many as 1,300 girls on a waiting list due to a shortage of volunteers. In an effort to serve as many girls as possible, GSWCF is asking local adults to step forward as volunteers to serve as positive role models for girls.

    All it again
    The democrats are at it again; making up lies to cover up their poor performance, and trying to pass the blame onto respectable republicans. The 2013-2014 house is not responsible for congress’ poor performance, rather the democratic senate leader, Harry Reid, carries that responsibility.
    The house has sent more than 200 bills to the senate, and Harry Reid refused to bring the bills to the senate floor where they can be discussed and voted on.
