Crystal River council
to consider issues
Probably the biggest issue on the
Crystal River City Council agenda
today is the question of how to handle
the due-process hearing for the city
manager after the 3-2 vote on Jan. 24
to fire her with cause.
On Monday's agenda is City
Manager Susan Boyer's response
from her attorney. The hearing was
set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15, but the
city's labor attorney, who is advising
the city about the

With Boyer's attorney making refer-
ence to breach of contract and signif-
icant damages to his client in her
response to the grounds for termina-
tion, the council may have to sort out
the logistics of the issue at the 7 p.m.
On another topic, the city manager
is recommending proceeding with the
first reading of the adoption of the
city's Land Development Code (LDC).
The council has finished going
through the revised document after
many workshops with its consultant,
but still has some things it wants to
The recommendation is to have the
first reading to adopt it, and then
begin the public hearing process to
tweak the parts it's uncomfortable
with along the way Boyer noted that
the first reading can be continued
until all topics are covered. One diffi-
culty will be that the city planner,
most familiar with the LDC, has
resigned and is leaving next week
Boyer also will recommend that
city Police Chief Steven Burch be
named acting city manager, as finance
director Donna Kilbury, currently the
acting city manager in Boyer's
absence, also has resigned and is
leaving the city Feb. 28.
Council member Roger Proffer will

were final, their friendship

years, and began talking about
getting married during
Christmas 1993. Then, in May
1993, they took a trip to Idaho
for a horse show, and then took
a side trip to Lake Tahoe.
"There were so many wed-
ding chapels, and the. mood
just hit us," Karen said. "The
wedding cost us $98, which we
put on a credit card. We had
bur ceremony at the Chapel of
the Bells, then went across the
street for our reception at the
'Taco of the Bells,' grabbed
something to eat and went back

Goodyear for love
It was 1987, and Teresa

Her 1985 Mercury Topaz kept
pulling to the right, and she
was tired of getting the

shops. She drove into a

car on a test drive. Teresa was
going on and on about the tires,
and even though her receipt
was clearly from another store,
she kept insisting "Bitbobught
them from you!"
Eventually, Teresa calmed
down long enough to notice
that the mechanic sitting next
to her, Larry Kuechle, was
awfully cute. She asked him if
he noticed her "single" sign.
He hadn't, so she took a breath

Test drive over, Teresa
bought two tires from him and
gave him her phone number.
Four days went by before Larry
called and made arrangements
for dinner and a movie -

been together ever since.
"He cleaned up nice!"
Two years later, they bought
land in Floral City, moved to
Inverness in July 1989, and got
married on their land in

Al and Dottle Sieber.
Thirty-one years ago, Al and
Dottie Sieber got more than a

thought. Al turned out to be a
great dancer. Later, he called
for a date, but got cold feet and
called to say he was sick. "What
really happened, he told me
later, was that he ate lunch
with some of the young girls in
my department and they were
a pretty wild bunch," Dottie
said. "He thought maybe I was
wild like them!"
Al had married his child-
hood sweetheart, and hadn't
dated anyone else. "The
thought of a 'wild thing' woman
scared him," she said. But two
weeks later, they did go out,
although Al was quite nervous
throughout dinner. He told
Dottie he felt like he was cheat-
ing on his late wife.
He got over his fear and
nervousness, and four months
later they married. On Feb. 24,

Jim and Rosemary Branham.
Don't let preacher see!
Both widowed, Jim and
Rosemary Branham attended
the same church, but didn't
know each other However, Jim
had noticed Rosemary, and
was quite taken with her. But
he was also shy and afraid to
ask for her phone number, so
he wrote a note on a piece of
paper and passed it to her dur-
ing church one Sunday. "I
would consider it a great honor
if you would agree to have
lunch or dinner with me one
day soon ... please call me," he
Rosemary felt as giddy as a
teenager invited to her first
dance. They went out to dinner
a few times and then he
kissed her. "It made me tingle
right down to my toes!" she told
Then the preacher found out
about the note ... when the cou-
ple asked if he would marry
them. They were married by
the Rev. Lloyd Bertine in
October 2000, down by the
water in Homosassa. Since
then, the couple has stood by
each other through the death of
Rosemary's son and Jim's kid-
ney disease. Jim's kidney trans-
plant is scheduled for March 4.
"To all who know them, it's
obvious that they have a great
love and a strong faith," said
their friend Lona Prevatt.

LESS NOISE, MORE ACTION
needs to be
T ong-suffering citizens of
the county have again
petitioned their elected
representatives at the County
Commission for relief of assault
by airboat noise.
Anyone who has ever been
subjected to the obnoxious nui-
sance sometimes literally an
auditory battering can sympa-
thize with the complaining citi-
zens. Anyone who has been
awakened and kept awake by the
roar of airboats understands the
recent group of 263 petitioners'
frustration with local govern-
ment's inability and/or unwill-
ingness to do any-
thing about the situ-

cials need to listen

or make statements that give lip
service and no relief.
The county says it is consider-
ing amending its noise ordi-
nance, possibly adopting state-
endorsed standards of limiting
noise to 90 decibels at 50 feet.
When: would this take effect and
how would it be enforced?
Residents want relief.
The vast majority of registered
voters and taxpaying residents
who take the brunt of this noise
attack want something done.
While the ordinance needs to be
tough, it will mean nothing if it is
not enforced. Vehicles making
noise beyond acceptable levels
are not allowed on highways.
Logic follows that extremely
loud vehicles should not be
allowed to go unchecked on
waterways, particularly near
For years, airboaters have
been asked to consider others
and to abide by the law. Some
have. Some haven't. The risk in
rejecting calls for compromise is
that, as the county grows more
urban, the mindset could shift to
absolute intolerance. Peaceful
coexistence is the best option.
Some use quieting technology
on their boats. Some don't

If that doesn't happen, then

inspection at a county inspec-
tion station could be an answer.
Muffling devices and certain
props could be required to pass
inspection, if that's what it takes.
The time for misguided rheto-
ric about freedom, who .was here
first, excuses about why it can't
be done and claiming of rights at
the expense of others has
passed. It's time, commissioners,
Don't throw it
I'm calling in response to the
trash in the paper. If people want to
clean up the roads, they need to
quit throwing trash out the window.
Take down signs
My complaint is about garage
sale signs. People leave their garage
sale signs up well after their sale is
over. And of course, other than it
being litter on the roads, it's also

I just finished reading
two newspapers with sto- -
ries about Johnny Carson,
and not one listed who
survives him. I noticed
before that they just don't j
do that anymore, yet that's
of interest. Is there a rea- CALI
son why they're not listing 5nn
their survivors? 64
Editor's note: Most obitu-
ary writers focused on John-
ny Carson's career. His fourth wife,
Alexis, and two sons survived him.
Relying on volunteers
I'm listening to my scanner and I
want to know why do the volunteers
have to leave their jobs to help EMS
"Litter alert" and "Trash responsibil-
ities." I just want to say that basi-
cally the people are responsible for
the litter and the trash. The resi-
dents of Citrus County need to be
aware of the environmental impact
of them throwing trash out the win-
dows in'cars, which I've seen fre-
quently. So the problem is not the
politicians. The problem is the peo-
ple who need the education in not
trashing the county.
This is in response to the people
who are blaming the city officials for
the trash on the side of the roads. I
think it would be best if they
blamed the people who are really
responsible for this, and that is the
slobs who drive by and throw their
trash out the window.
Sixth lifting and driving?
Don't they have, like,
supervisors or captains or
chiefs who do that kind of
stuff that can help out?
You know, why do we have
to rely on the volunteers
all the time?

Thanks for support
The election is over and despite my
exhaustion, I feel compelled to thank
everyone that helped with my cam-.
First, I want to thank the Lord for
his blessings and the courage he gave
me throughout my campaign and all
the people that prayed for me. Then, I
want to thank my family, Mercedes,
Maria, Gustavo, Renee' and Adrian,
who supported me with love and
Next, I have to thank all my friends,
both old and new, who believed in
me, walked with me and talked to oth-
ers on my behalf. This list includes
Larry and Karen G., Joyce R. and
Audrey, Mary Ann W, Linda S., Ann
S., George and Judy R., Kitty, Betty P,
Bobbi Y., Lorene D., Mary Ann and
Arnold V, Art and Jeanne Z., Pat,
Karen W and finally Sophie. If I have
left anyone out of this list, please
except my sincerest apologies.
Lastly, the biggest thanks of all must
go to the people of the city of
Inverness who shared their thoughts
and their time with me and helped
me win in the end. This includes the
lovely couple that gave us Italian
cookies one day, the artist that helped
me speak at her homeowners associa-
tion, the gentleman living at the end
of a forgotten dirt road and all the
others I met while walking more than
48 hours through the streets of
Inverness. To all these people, even
the ones that didn't vote for me, I
promise to do my very best

Paul's New and Used Furniture has been at the same
location in Homosassa since 1971. Interestingly, the
business has always been owned and operated by a
husband and wife pair. Dave and Linda Schultz have
owned Paul's New and Used Furniture since 1993.
They also live in a home that is on the same property as
the shop, so they are readily available.
At Paul's New and Used Furniture, you will find a full
line of bookcases, computer desks, entertainment cen-
ters, dining and bedroom sets, living room sofas, chairs,
tables, lamps and anything else you would need for your
Their stock is 80% used furniture, which the owners
handpick from calls they receive from private sellers. They
buy one piece or an entire household. The remaining
20% of their inventory is new furniture, which includes the
popular Legends solid wood home office and entertain-
ment line and Stover Rest, a line of new bedding. They
also have distributor connections with the ability to have
furniture delivered in 10 days, such as select lines of
Ashley, Higdon and Vaughan-Bassett.
An 800 square foot section of the store is dedicated to
houseware items: dinnerware, glassware, knick-knacks,
linens, cookware and baking ware. If you cannot find
what you are looking for at Paul's New and Used
Furniture, they have a 6,000 square foot warehouse, in
addition to their 6,000 square foot store, containing more
beautiful furniture. When you do find what you like, Dave
and Linda will deliver and set up your new furniture, sav-
ing you time, money, and effort.
Also, this year Linda has started to dabble on Ebay. At
any time you may find a selection of interesting collectible
and useful.items up for bid. These can be viewed under
seller ID: wolfbranch777.
To find Paul's New and Used Furniture, which is
located at 5348 West Holiday Street in Homosassa, turn
at their green sign on West Grover Cleveland Boulevard
and follow their signs to the shop on Holiday Street. They
are open from the Tuesday after Labor Day through May

and August in order to run a similar shop in Wisconsin.
