NUCLEAR SECURITY
The Crystal River nuclear power plant is surrounded by three levels of
security:
* Vital Area The interior of the plant is open only to authorized per-
sonnel with the highest level of security. Security measures inside the
Vital Area are not disclosed.
* Protected Area The Protected Area is the immediate area around
the nuclear power plant. A chain link fence surrounded by razor wire,
known as adversary delay fencing, gives guards in towers time to fire at
*intruders. are set up on the interior. A vehicle barrier system can rip
out the bottom of a vehicle. Closed-circuit television cameras watch
the Protected Area. Other intrusion detection devices are employed.
Heavily armed guards patrol this area. Entry is more stringent.
* Owner-Controlled Area This is the area from the razor wire around
- the nuclear power plant outward to the perimeter fences. It encom-
passes most of the 800-acre Crystal River Energy Complex grounds.
There are no noticeable security patrols, but the access control site is
on Power Line Road. At the access control site, vehicles are stopped
and searched. The train tracks are equipped with a device to derail a
train if security guards determine that a coal train represents a threat.
The tracks are also equipped with a device to stop someone from driv-
ing a vehicle on the tracks to hit a train. When vehicles leave the
access control site, they weave through a snake-shaped concrete
course designed to slow any unauthorized vehicles that might have
broken through the first layer of security.

A Lecanto man is recovering at
Tampa General Hospital after a Thurs-
day crash in Inverness that killed
another man.
, William Zachary Bullock, 25, suffered
multiple injuries in the accident on
Turner Camp Road and was in serious
condition before being transported by
Aeromed helicopter to the hospital.
Contacted at the hospital Saturday
afternoon, Bullock's wife, Carla, said he

has a broken femur, broken pelvis, frac-
tured hipbone and possibly a broken
foot.
An X-ray of the foot was expected to
determine the exact injury, though Mrs.
Bullock said it was swelling up and
bruised.
She also said Bullock had to go
through surgery to remove a 4-inch
piece of metal from his femur, which
she said was from the emergency brake
of the company truck he had been driv-
ing when the crash occurred.
Mrs. Bullock said her husband has
been "in and out of it" since the crash


because of medications he has been
given, but that he feels "very upset
about the whole situation," referring to
the man who died in the crash and his
family
Bullock was driving his AAA Roofing
truck around 2:38 p.m. when, according
to Florida Highway Patrol investiga-
tors, a grey and blue Chevy S10 pickup
truck apparently tried to make a left
turn in front of Bullock. The trucks col-
lided, causing extensive damage to
both.
The man in the pickup truck was pro-
nounced dead at the scene. His name
had not been released as of Saturday
afternoon.
Bullock spent two hours trapped in


his vehicle while county fire and rescue
crews worked to extricate him. He was
conscious and alert after being
removed and put on a stretcher before
the helicopter flight.
Mrs. Bullock said hospital staff told
her Bullock would likely need to go
through physical therapy for his
injuries, and would probably need to
stay at the hospital for at least another
week She also said he would likely be
out of work for 4 to 5 months, according
to doctors.
However, despite her husband's
injuries, Mrs. Bullock, who is 10 weeks
pregnant, said she still feels blessed.
"He was just as lucky as he could be,"
she said. "God was with him."

the reports and recommendations from
the Blue Ribbon Committee and the
Florida Department of Education and cre-

"They'll give us recommendations on


how and what to implement," director of
support services Mike Mullen said.
ZHA was hired in June by the school
board for about $14,000. Mullen said ZHA
has made procedure manuals for other
facilities and construction departments
and he expects their advice to be essential
in creating a new manual for Citrus's facil-

Also at the meeting,,board members will
approve the education specifications for

If the board approves the plans, an

used long-handled mirrors to
look under the bus while the
driver's licenses were carried
to the guardhouse. The driver's
licenses were used to confirm
passenger identities.
The eight to 10 passengers,
among them County Commis-
sioner Joyce Valentino, Crystal
River Councilwoman Susan
Kirk and Inverness Council-
woman Sophia-Diaz Fonseca,
were asked if they were carry-
ing weapons or explosives.
Everyone respectfully ans-
wered "no" in unison.
About 10 minutes later, the
same security guard who had
boarded earlier returned to
redistribute the borrowed dri-
ver's licenses. Each of the pas-
sengers was given a visitor
sticker to attach to their cloth-
ing. The bus was allowed to
pass through. An entry sign
warned visitors that guards
were authorized to use deadly
force.
Visitor tours to the nuclear
power plant were stopped
after 9/11. Before the attacks,
visitors were routinely taken.

room. Those tours were discon-
tinued and visitors are no
longer allowed inside the
plant. The old visitor's center,
situated near the area of the
old guard shack, is where
Harris had his office before
9/11. His new office is within
the fenced perimeter of the
nuclear power plant, known as
the Protected Area.
The nuclear power plant
itself resembled a state prison,
surrounded by chain link
fences and rolls of razor wire.
Sharpshooters watched from
guard towers. Harris stepped
out of the bus briefly to retrieve
something from his office.
When he returned to the bus,
Harris told passengers he had
to walk through an explosives
detection device and then
empty his pockets of metal as
he walked through metal
detectors to re-enter his office.
The materials he took from his
pockets were X-rayed. He
passed his identification badge
over an electronic reader, and
then pressed the palm of his
hand into a hand geometry
reader to confirm he was the
person who was authorized to.
use the badge.
"It sort of seems normal after
a while," Harris chuckled.

Harris said the 800-acre
Owner-Occupied Area in
which the four coal plants and
nuclear plant are located -
are surrounded by chain link
perimeter fence topped with
barbed wire. A 2-inch cable is
strung above the fence to deter
low-flying airplanes from
reaching the nuclear power
plant. The air space above the
plant is not restricted, but the
plant is designed to withstand
the impact of a commercial jet,
Harris said. Plant security offi-
cers use infrared devices to
watch for suspicious activity at
night.
Progress Energy uses its own
"adversarial forces" to drill for
.attacks on nuclear power
plants. The Nuclear Reg-
ulatory Commission also has
an adversarial force for drills.
Harris said the Crystal River
nuclear power plant guards
have done well in the drills.
The guards don't use live
ammunition for the drills, but
Use guns that shoot laser
beams. The attacking force
wears special equipment to
register kills iand hits.
Attackers "killed" in the fire-


fights must drop out of the drill.
Many of the security meas-
ures at the plant could not be
discussed because the infor-
mation was considered "safe-
guards" material. Safeguards
means Progress Energy, the
plant owner, can declare infor-
mation confidential if disclos-
ing it might compromise secu-
rity.
Progress Energy was asked if
the coal trains and coal barges
that come into the plant are
guarded and if security is pro-
vided for the sites where the
trains and barges are loaded.
The trains and barges pass
near the nuclear power plant

security force that closely mon-
itors barges and trains coming
to the energy complex. The
entry point for the barges is
considered a seaport by defini-
tion. It falls under the security
requirements of the Maritime
Security Act, she said. That
means the site is also under the
protection of the U.S. Coast
Guard. Groleau said Progress
Energy also works very closely
with federal and state law
enforcement to protect the site.
"We're very confident this is
a secure site," she said.

amount expected.
The county has been work-
i to try and find ways to.
rauuce the cost, but is still
about $4 million short.
Initially, the cost for resi-
dents to hook up was projected
to be about $3,500. Without
more funding, however, it has
been estimated residents
would have to pay about
$10,500 to hook up.
In an Oct. 5 letter to Rep.
Charles Dean, R-Inverness;
Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port
Richey; and Sen. Nancy
Argenziano, R-Dunnellon,
Bartell asked for the support of
the county's legislative delega-
tion with the DCA for an exten-
sion.
Dean, who represents all the
county in the House of Rep-
resentatives, said Friday he
has already asked DCA to
extend the grant and said he
thinks the state should fund
the shortfall in the project He
said it's a public health issue of
critical concern, not some
"turkey" project.
Bartell agrees and has also
pointed out the river is a
Florida Outstanding Water,
and so the state also has a big
environmental stake in the
issue of pollution of the river.
Fasano, who represents
those residents west of U.S. 19
in the Senate, said he would
support an extension and also
put the request in for $4 mil-
lion more in funding, but had
some concerns about the coun-
ty's position.
The state already had come
up with about $5 million, he
said, while the county only put
up a fraction of that, and now
the county is asking the state to
come up with more.

whether the county can afford to purchase
FGUA.
"My goal on Tuesday is to put this out there
for commissioners to discuss. I would like to
assemble a group of experts to be able to come

She said she realizes the financial issues
could be complex. She said the board was told
at the time FGUA bought the 11 utilities that the
county could buy them back at the original pur-
chase price whenever it was ready.
But she said it appears now that any improve-
ments FGUA has made to the utilities it pur-

She said she is growing weary of the changing
numbers FGUA uses, calling it a "shell game."
Commissioner Gary Bartell, like Phillips, said
he wants to take a look at purchasing FGUA.
However, he said he is not ready to commit to a
purchase. He wants to be sure the purchase
would not result in a rate increase for its Citrus
County customers.
Bartell said he supported the original con-
cept behind the creation of FGUA. He said the
organization was to purchase private utilities
and hold them like a warehouse until local gov-
ernments could afford to buy them back But he
said he has been disappointed in the way FGUA
operates.
He said the fact that FGUA tried to impose
the property assessments without county
approval was disappointing.
"The performance FGUA has demonstrated
this past year, I'm not impressed with at all," he
said.

Hernando Home and Community Education Club to meet Tuesday


Special to the Chronicle

The Tuesday meeting of the
Hernando Home and Com-
munity Education Club will
take place at the Hernando
Fire Station Conference room
on Orange Avenue, which will
be a membership meeting with
a covered-dish brunch at 11
a.m.
The club is associated with
the University of Florida, IFAS
and the Cooperative Extension
at 3650 Sovereign Path, in
Lecanto.
We are not a craft club,
although we all are interested
in crafts and make and sell
them at our only money maker
for the year, which is the
"Prevue of Holiday Ideas," at
the Citrus County Canning
Center, Southern Avenue (first
street on the left on C.R. 491
North, Lecanto) for the two-day
sale of all handmade items.
We also have a bake sale, a
food booth (each year a differ-
ent club is chair), a council
table, Christmas Tree loaded
with handmade ornaments and
a raffle with six handmade
items all worth $25 or more,
and the donation is $1 per tick-


et or six for $5. All the members
are working hard to make this
a success.
Come in from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Nov. 4 and 5.
The Hernando club makes
baby quilts to be donated to the
pregnancy center, the sheriff's
office, the two hospitals in
Citrus County, etc.
To CASA goes monetary aid
and clothes, food, paper prod-
ucts, bedding and special
handout packets containing
toothbrushes, toothpaste,
sewing kits, combs, brushes,
shampoo, conditioner all
donated to help the children
and adults who are abused and
are left with nothing.
The Family Resource and
the Kids Central Inc. are
among the ones that receive all
the suitcases, totebags and
backpacks that we can collect.
This has been a new and ongo-
ing project for the past year.
We have a group that makes
all the "hats for hugs" for can-
cer patients. They are cro-
cheted, knitted or sewed.
These are donated to hospitals,
Hospice and other medical
institutions.
Ouch dolls are also on our


agenda. They are donated to
children who are receiving
shots in doctor's offices or hos-
pitals, so they have something
to hug and, hopefully, can for-
get about pain.
We have a booth at the
County Fair regarding "Stamp
out Violence" on TV and gather
thousands of signatures that
we will shut down the TV on a
special day in April.
We donate to the 4-H scholar-
ships with $200, $300, or $400 to
each high school student who
is registered in a college of her
choice.
Fun things gre few, but
appreciated by all members.
We have several 'ho attend
Camp Ocala in April, staying in
cabins, good food cooked for
us, educational programs in
the morning, crafts in the after-
noon and bingo in the evening.
It's nice to mingle with HCE
members from the 10 counties
that District 111 represents.
We have tours and trips and
educational, annual family pic-
nic in October, membership
luncheon in April where new
members, from the year before,
receive membership pins; we

'LA nd what did you do
on your vacation?"
seems to be the stan-


I rov i a e rs dard question asked of vaca-
tioners.
Well ... I had a
4W D great time my
- friends had the
days planned out
for me, including
two theater parties.
They are theater
lovers and hold sea-
son tickets to sever-
al theaters.
- One evening we
went to the (new to Anne
-* me) Theater at the MEM
Center located in M
- Munster, Ind. It is a A
S-- lovely large build- COUNI
^-* ing holding a very
comfortable seating theater
and several other rooms,
where .acting classes for all
- ages and other classes are
held. There is also a boutique
where one can purchase
-*- unusual items.
Now ... for the play. It is a
comedy titled "Over the
Tavern" written by Tom
S Dudzick, based on his life. It is
- about a Polish family who lives
above the tavern that Papa
owns. The story unfolds about
- -- growing up Catholic in the '50s.
--- It was really a fun evening
with the actors doing superb
-* -- ~- acting, particularly a young boy
S-* - who played a student attending
-- school. The actress playing
Sister Clarissa was so believ-
able you could easily attach
-- her to one of the nuns you had
in schools. Then, of course,
-"* during the play the actors
danced such a wonderful
-- - polka, which had us tapping
- our toes.
,- -- - We were ushered into our
S- - seats by male senior citizens
-- -* who did a great job. The gen-
--*- tleman taking me to my seat
said, "I'll see you at the end of
the show and dance a Polka
with you." "You're on!" I
responded, dismissing the
.- .- - challenge immediately from
my mind. Wow, was I surprised
--- -*- walking out of the theater to
s the corridor when the usher
-- met and grabbed me and we
-- danced to the Polka music
being played, much to the

amazement and amusement of
my friends who stood there,
watched and giggled. But ...
that's the Midwest spirit
The play was
delightful but
lacked a bit of the
constant humor
found in "Do Black
Patent Leather
Shoes Really
- /* Reflect Up?" of
S course, this was the
first play of its kind
and now everything
., .; is compared to it.
Fusillo The next theater
OIRS performance was at
the renovated old
RAVEL Opera House in
SELOR Valparaiso, Ind.,
- which took plaoq
Sunday afternoon. It was
pleasure to see families a
young children at the theati
The play was "Clue" based 04
the game everyone seems t4
enjoy playing. It was excellertt
although a bit perplexing since
I never played Clue, and a
intermission I found out I had
a lot of company in the same
predicament.
It was amazing watching the,
players move and turn tall,
papered boxes, joining them'
together, thus making the
scenery room changes. The
dialogue was in rhyming cop-
plets, which required a lot of
studying. They all had excel,-
lent singing voices, adding to
their outstanding performanpr
es. I enjoyed it tremendously
but next time, I will become
familiar with the Clue game so
that I can act as my own dete;-
tive in solving "Whodunit!"
From there we went to a great
restaurant where we enjoyed
watching the wedding party tak-
ing photos. However, from our
menu we chose Scotch eggs and
the most delicious Bruschetta, I
had ever eaten.
Yummy!, What an afternoon!
And there's more to come.

Leaf well enough alone


We have been stuck behind Mr. and Mrs.
Leaf Looker for 45 minutes. Sue and I
are on our way home from the grocery
store; they are on vacation. It's nice to be on
vacation, to not have a worry in the world, to
take the time to smell the roses, to wander wher-
ever the wind blows you, to be awed by the won-
der of nature, to drink in the majestic beauty of
this country, to slow down and admire every
new vista in brilliant, flaming colors.
But why do you have to do it in front
of us?
"Let's ram them," Sue said.
I'm not sure she knew she was
thinking aloud, but she had read my '
mind. Stupid nature. Dumb beauty.
We've got things to do. It must be swell y
to have the time to look at dead leaves,
but I've got gutters to clean, bulbs to
plant, patio furniture to stow away for
the winter, storm windows to install. J
Most of all I've got a lawn full of MUL
beautiful leaves to rake. Not so beau-
tiful when they're knee deep on your front lawn,
are they, Mr. and Mrs. Foliage Connoisseur?
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder,
and I guess I'll be holding about 20 giant leaf
bags before the day is through. If I ever get
home. The leaf-lovers ahead of us are now stuck
behind leaf-lovers who are even slower than
they were. Where do these drivers come from
that have never seen leaves before? If they live
within driving distance, they must have their
own leaves.
Oh, you want to see them at their peak?
Nothing but the best for you. Two days before
peak, who wants to see that? Why even leave the
house? Two days after peak? What kind of
chump would want to look at leaves two days
after they peak? What a colossal waste of time.
It would be like going to a museum and finding
the Rembrandt is out being cleaned. Why even
go at all? The rest of the paintings are just a


bunch of Van Dykes, Turners and Titians. I can
see junk like that at home.
Or maybe our leaves are different from their
leaves. Our leaves turn red and yellow, maybe
theirs turn pink with purple polka dots. C'mon
people, they're just leaves. If you look at them
close up they're dirty, spotted, misshapen, full of
bugs, and not very pretty at all. Is yellow a bet-
ter color than green?
Is red a better color than green? I
think green can hold its own with all
the other colors, I don't think we
have to get all that excited about
leaves turning brown and falling off
S the trees.
Whoa! What's this? The leafers
have their right blinker on. Finally!
Praise the Lord!
That's right, I forgot, there's an
overlook up ahead. Yes, get off the
M road and take your leaf-peeping
.LEN friends with you.
As we follow them with our eyes,
making sure this isn't some leaf-peeping trick,
that suddenly and without warning they'll
change their minds and swerve back in front of
us at 20 miles per hour, we get a glimpse of the
far-off hills.
It was as if a bright red sunset and a thick gold
dawn had come together and dropped to the
ground so we could see what they look like up
close. Our jaws dropped, we slowed down and
followed the leaf-peepers onto the overlook.
The "tourists" were from the next town. They
didn't know why, but they'd decided to take the
day off and drive around. We decided to take the
rest of the day off, too. The storm windows could
wait; who wants to clean gutters on a day like
this anyway? I may not rake the leaves at all this
year.

Citrus boys take CCAA Meet

Crystal River High School senior Julian Palhof powers through his lane in the 200-medly relay swimming the butterfly Saturday
afternoon at Bicentennial Park in Crystal River during the CCAA Championship meet. Palhof's four-man team won the event.

It's the orie sport in which
the winning coaches are pun-
ished.
LeeAnn Pepe knew this, of
course. "I hid in the bath-
room hoping they would for-
get about me," she said, smil-
ing. "They didn't."
No, they didn't. Her swim-
mers hunted her down and,
like the other winning coach-
es involved in the second
annual Citrus County
Athletic Association
Championship, they tossed
her into the pool.
That's how the Citrus swim
teams celebrated their title
in the boys meet. The
Hurricanes edged Lecanto,
scoring 322 points to the
Panthers 309. Crystal River


was third with 223.
In the girls meet, it was all
Lecanto with 365 points:
Crystal River placed second
with 317, followed by Citrus
with 268.
Despite the dunking, Pepe
couldn't have been much
happier. Asked if her team
swam to expectations, she
replied, "Better.
"We were hoping to do
well, and we knew it was pos-
sible for the boys to win. It
was just a major team effort."
The Citrus win in the boys
didn't come from a couple of
superior performances by
top-level swimmers. Rather,
it was the result of second
tier competitors who stepped
up.
The Hurricanes finished
first in just one event in the
boys meet: Pablo Picado won
the 50-yard freestyle in 26.74.

Picado also placed second in (2:40.42,, third (2:41.96) and
the 100 butterfly (1:09.31). fourth (2:46.03) respectively
But it was those seconds in the 200 individual medley,

Three of Crystal River's girls
cross country team finished in
the top five at the Crystal River
Invitational Saturday, each of
them recording personal bests
for the course, according to
coach Lisa Carter.
And yet it wasn't quite good
enough to beat Hernando,
which won the team title by
just three points.
The reason: Carter's daugh-
ter, Lori, was sick.
She insisted on
running, but
she was far
from her peak
form. Indeed,
her finish was. b
not among the "
top five girls for Crystal River
"She's been my No.4 or 5 for
the past two seasons," said
Lisa Carter of her daughter.
"She should have stopped, but
she ran the course sick.
"The others all ran PRs (per-
sonal records). We got a good
race out of Holly (Van Sicklen),
and they were great times for
Danielle (Dixon) and Kristen
(Hall). But you do what you can
do."
The good news for Crystal
River is that this wasn't the big
race at their school. That
comes in two weeks, when the
Pirates host the county meet
on Oct 22.
"This is the first time we've
raced here this year," said Van
Sicklen. "It's a tough course,
with sand and spots that were
sloshy"
So how did the senior man-
age to do so well on such a
warm day?

injury on a Vanguard penalty
later in the first half.
"I took a shoulder to the
chest, and it knocked the wind
out of me," Swander said. "But
it gave me motivation to come
back."
His response was brilliant
in the second half, adding
another goal and two more
assists.
"Taylor was awesome, he
was all over the place today."
Referring to Vanguard's
physical play, Swander noted,
"We knew it was coming, but
we also know we can possess
the ball better than a lot of
teams. Coach just told us at,
the half to come out and play
harder."


The Warriors' ability to
dominate possession resulted
in twenty-one shots on goal,
and limited the Knights to six
attempts, requiring Seven
Rivers keeper Peets to work a
mere three saves.
Tyler Commons had a goal
and two assists for the
Warriors, and Derrick
Labahn, Julian Cousinet, and
John Greete each found the
back of the net as well.
The win improved Seven
Rivers' record to 13-3 overall.
"It's a culmination of things
coming together finally at the
end of the season. I'd like to be
a little quicker than we are
now, but we've got some young
players we're waiting for to
blossom, and we've got some
of the best young talent in the
county out here," Ekeli said.
"It was a hard-fought game
today."

'And this gives us a little
practice (for county) on this
course."
Van Sicklen won the girls'
race in 20:48, well ahead of
Hernando's Anna Gray, who
was second in 21:21. Emi
Stephens, also from Hernando,
was third in 21:48.
She was followed by Crystal
River's Dixon (fifth, 21:54) and
Hall (sixth, 22:02). After that
was Tawsha Welborn of Trinity
Catholic (22:03), Danielle
Cooperman of Hernando
(22:21), Erica Roessler of
Hernarido (22:24), Jami.e Carter
of Central (22:35) andPaige
Cooke of Seven Rivers (22:43).
With Lori Carter not up to
par, the Pirates could not quite
catch Hernando, which won
the team race with 34 points.
Crystal River was second with
37, followed by Trinity Catholic
(75) and Dunnellon (117).
"Really, this is just practice
for the big ones that are coming
up," said the Pirates' coach.
'"And we're in a tough region (at
Lecanto)."

thirds and fourths instead of
sixth," said Pepe. "That's what
we want to look for at districts
as well."
While Citrus was winning
the boys meet with its superior
depth, Lecanto was taking
most of the first places, for both
the boys and girls. The Panther
boys claimed seven individual
wins and two of three relays.
The Lecanto girls were even
more dominating they col-
lected six individual wins and
swept the three relays.
Which, of course, earned one
of their coaches, Kelly Abrams,
the ceremonial dunking.
"I rove 'em, I love 'em all,"
she said. "Absolutely (they
were up to expectations)."
And although they had plen-
ty of winners, which Abrams
took note of, some of the others
caught her attention as well.
Like freshman Brianna Shafer
in the 100 free, who placed
11th but whose time (1:27.61)
was 10 seconds faster than her
previous best
"This is her first year, and
she started off a little rough,"
Abrams said. "But she's come
so far"
Every team got similar per-
formances. What they didn't
get were swims like those of
Lecanto's Taylor Cooke, who
won both the 200 (2:07.72) and
500 (5:32.82) freestyles, and
Chelsea Peterson, a winner in
the 50 (28.40) and 100 (1:00.36)
free, as well as Veronica
Adams, first in the 100 back-
stroke (1:14.35), and Elizabeth
Lyons, a win in the 100 breast-
stroke (1:25.99).
Other Lecanto winners for
the girls were Adams, Lyons,
Jamie Girdwain and Peterson
teamed for a first in the 200
medley relay (2:14.53); in the
200 free relay, Brittney Roth,


The boys race also favored
Hernando, which is state-
ranked and won easily. The
Leopards scored 29 points,
with three of the top four spots
going to their runners.
Trinity Prep was second with
53, followed by Crystal River
with 67, Central with 123,
Trinity Catholic with 146,
Springstead with 156 and
Zephyrhills with 203.
The Martucci brothers paced
the Hernando effort, finishing
first-second. Ben Martucci took
top honors (16:36), with Drew
Martucci second (16:57).
Dunnellon's Chad Hannah was
third (17:03), with Hernando's
Jacob Bess fourth (17:06) and
Crystal River's Brennon
McNally fifth (17:22).
Other top-10 players in !the
boys race were'Trinity Prep's
Kevin Lanza sixth (17:23),
Crystal River's Joe Greer sev-
enth (17:24.2), Trinity Prep's
Ranley Gousse eighth
(17:24.4), Trinity Prep's
Tommy Ward ninth (17:31) and
Hernando's Robert Sudduth
came in tenth (17:33).
The Citrus/Hernando Classic
is Saturday at McKethan Lake,
followed by the county meet
Oct 22 at Crystal River High
School.


Lyons, Jillian Swartz and
Cooke were first (1:58.52); and
Peterson, Roth, Swartz and
Cooke took top honors in the
400 free relay (4:13.67).
Citrus got a win in the girls
meet from Amie Osterhout in
the 200 IM (2:43.30), and
Crystal River got firsts from
Sarah Wygle in the diving
(178.10 points) and from
Marlina Savage in the 100 but-
terfly (1:13.71).
In the boys meet, Lecanto's
Lou Tamposi, David Rundio
and Kyle Roberts accounted
for six individual. first-place
finishes. Tamposi got victories
in the 200 freestyle (2:00.68)
and 100 butterfly (1:03.97),
Rundio was best in the 200 IM
(2:25.35) and 100 backstroke
(1:06.70), and Roberts won the
500 free (6:08.22) and 100
breaststroke (1:21.32).
Lecanto got a first in the div-
ing from Garret LeMon (208.70
points) with a score that was
nearly 70 points higher than
the previous CCAA meet
record (131.75).
Crystal River's Julian Palhof
was first in the 100 free (55.67).
The Pirates' team of John
Shirley, Glenn Oberlander,
Palhof and James Hutchinson
were winners in the 200 med-
ley relay (2:06.52), while
Lecanto's Tamposi, Chris
Holland, Ian Crocker and
Rundio were best in the 200
free relay (1:46.01) and
Tamposi, Holland, Roberts and
Rundio were first in the 400
free relay (3:50.46).
"I'm very happy," said Tas
Pepito, the Crystal River
coach. "The kids who we want-
ed to be fast were. The times
they got will help me make
decisions on what events to put
them in at districts, and who
will swim what relays.
"This will be a stepping
stone for the district meet."
If the times keep dropping,
that could be an interesting
meet indeed.

Alvin Williamson took the
early lead of the Hobby Stock
division but it was Bill Ryan
with the win at the checkered
flag.
Herb Hoefler pressured Ryan
all the way to the finish, and at
one point was side-by-side with
Ryan out of Turn Four but was
unable to power around Ryan's

Idle speculation


Chronicle file
Given current state administrative code that keeps the county from banning airboats from areas or limiting their speed solely for noise considerations, it
appears the only solutions to the problem posed by complaints about the noise from airboats may lie in operator courtesy and technology, including muf-
flers, that quiets motors and propellers.

County asks for legal opinion on idle speed for airboats; answer may be predictable


JIM HUNTER
jhunter@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

Airboats have been around Florida for a
long time, but as more and more resi-
dents have moved into once-undevel-
oped areas around the state's water
resources, the noise from airboats
.has drawn more and more com-
plaints.
The county created an ordinance to prohibit
airboat operation between the hours of 11 p.m. to
6 a.m., when most people are sleeping, but that
has not solved the problem. At least a few rene-
gades who local airboaters say are usually
from outside the county break the law.
Sometimes law enforcement catches them,
often via helicopter. In April the sheriff's office
reported it had given out four citations in the
previous eight months for breach of the curfew
on airboats.
But more often it is very difficult, or at least
very impractical to catch airboat infractions at
night on the vast wetlands in the county where
an airboat can douse lights and engine or race
across a county line into another jurisdiction.
Residents also complain about the noise dur-
ing the daylight hours. Some complain because
they feel assaulted in their own homes, for which
they pay hefty taxes on the waterfronts, and they
have begged the county commission for relief.
Others just don't want to hear any airboat noise,
period.
When does sound become assault?
So one element of the problem is of degree.
What constitutes, for instance, undue distur-
bance, or noise nuisance?
The chance that the background noise from
airboats in Florida will ever disappear is pretty
unlikely, given the situation and the history of
their use, so the question is, how much noise is
too much to direct at someone else?
Noise laws can address this, but capturing the
noise level of a fast-moving airboat out on the
water is a different thing altogether. First, the
noise differs, depending on which side a reading
is taken.
Even if a decibel level of the standard 90 deci-


AIRBOAT ISSUES
Unless state rules are changed, the solution
may lie in courtesy and technology. .
Competition for quieter airboats has been
suggested.

bels at 50 feet is set as suggested by the state as
unacceptable, the possibility of an officer meas-
uring the noise level heard by the complainants,
unless the officer is stationed there, is pretty
unlikely Further, the truth is most airboats,
including the county's own, wouldn't pass that
test unless operated at very low speeds.
Also, all airboats are different. Part of the
noise is the muffler or lack of a real one, as
just curved pipe is used in some airboats.
Mufflers do work well to muffle engine sound
when installed at low speed.
More of the sound is from the propeller as it
begins to beat the air at higher rpms, even at
supersonic speeds, creating the roar.
There are variables here, too, from boat to
boat. The noise level can depend on whether it's
an aircraft motor or marine/auto type and how
powerful the engine is, as well as what kind and
design of prop is used. Even the boat engine
framework type can make a difference. There
are, as the recent state study found, many vari-
ables.
Airboats, problem not going away
It is a problem that won't away. It pits the air-
boaters' right to use the waterways against the
rights of residents not to be disturbed in their
homes, or other boaters not to be assaulted by
the thunderous noise.
The airboat is a paradox machine. To ride in
an airboat with ear protection is to under-
stand the love for them. It is indeed a thrill, the
feeling of gliding, sliding over the water, skidding
into turns. Airboats can go in extremely shallow
areas where regular craft can't, and so the two-
dimensional freedom of movement is virtually
unlimited. The ride is truly enjoyable.
It's enjoyable, that is, if you are on the airboat,
and not adjacent to it without ear protection,
where the ear-pummeling noise can reflexively
bring your hands to your ears to protect yourself.


31 YEARS OF ORDINANCES
Complaints about airboat noise have been at
the center of a public controversy since
1974, when the county commission began
publicly wrestling !with the issue. It has
adopted five different airboat curfew ordi-
nances over the years to protect waterfront
area residents at night.
The 1974 curfew prohibited operation of air-
boats between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. on the
Withlacoochee River and on the Tsala
Apopka lakes and canals.
The 1978 version also prohibited airboats
from operating within a mile of any resi-
dence and at a speed of more than 5 mph
between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. anywhere in the
county.
The 1980 curfew eliminated the requirement
for airboats to stay a mile away from resi-
dences and changed the hours of the curfew
from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. The curfew hours
between Nov. 10 and Jan. 10 were from 11
p.m. to a half hour before daylight.
The ordinance today prohibits airboats from
11 p.m. to 6 a.m. on all waters.

If you're in your house and within the thunder
zone of a passing airboat, it feels like your house
has been invaded.
Most any airboater would be the first to admit
that hearing would soon fade without ear protec-
tion, and local authorities certainly would not
allow such noisy vehicles on the roadways.
What are the current options?
So the question is where should protection of
those not riding in the airboat begin?. Asking
waterfront area owners to wear ear protections
doesn't seem like a good answer. So there has to
be either a reduction in noise or a separation of
airboats and complainants. The county this
spring considered adopting the suggested stan-
dard of 90 decibels at 50, feet but in the end
rejected it as impractical and unenforceable.
No one would be willing to pay for the amount
of personnel and equipment it would take to do

Battle scar a lasting reminder of Hancock County


D during the past few
days, this is how peo-

me:
"What the heck happened

"What happened to the |

While I'd love to peg my MikeN

County's first trucks with
relief supplies for
Hurricane Katrina victims.
Well, the day turned out to
be a waste, because the
trucks didn't leave until
Tuesday morning so I
found myself with not much
to do.
Before arriving, I had
Wright called Rhonda Yanez. You
GHT may recall that Rhonda's
RGET two children are staying
with her parents in Citrus
Hills while she tries to fig-
ure out her life in Diamondhead, Miss.
The plan was to meet up with Rhonda
and some friends Monday night.


Later we were at Rhonda's house,
where she had graciously offered to let
me stay the night on the couch. I've
written about Rhonda opening her
house up to friends, and a couple of
those friends, Jim and Deb, were stay-
ing there.
Jim, Rhonda's ex-husband Pete and I
were in the living room watching
Monday night football when I decided
to venture outside.
Here is where I committed a cardinal
sin, one even my 10-year-old kid should
know. You never, ever go out in the dark
on unfamiliar terrain without light.
Never. Only a moron would do that.
Meet Mike, the moron.
Rhonda has a narrow pathway next


to the home that leads down to the back
yard. The path is made of patio stones,
each one a bit lower than the other. I
took about two steps and fell. My hand
grabbed her birdbath, but my head hit
on the sharp end of one of those bricks
that line a garden.
I thought I was fine. The others said I

and I was wrong. Next thing I know, an

I was deep under the covers

of screeching and barking, we

attacking us, but our fire alarm
was blaring. Must be a fire -

Whoops, I realized, we have
no children living with us, so
we never developed a fire
evacuation plan. As.the sleep
began to slip from my brain, I
realized we also had no fire.
What we had was a fire
alarm sucking the final life out

New power plant


would be welcome

N ews that Progress
Energy plans to build a
new power plant is
ample reason for local economic
development interests to do
some high-energy lobbying.
Company officials said the
Crystal River Energy Complex is
one site in a three-state area
being considered.
Since Citrus County already
has a foot in the door, it's imper-
ative that local officials extend a
hand to embrace
the possibility of
building upon that THE IS
relationship. New pow
As company offi-
cials decide
whether the new OUR OF
plant will be Why no
nuclear or coal
powered, they
should know that protecting the
environment of the Nature Coast
is a huge priority for those who
live here. Doubtless, new tech-
nology should result in a plant
that, if coal-burning, should send
less pollutants into the air than
the existing four coal-burning
plants at the Crystal River com-
plex; or, if nuclear, should have a
minimal impact on. the gulf
waters and marine life.
The prospect of having a state-
of-the-art nuclear plant is the
most appealing option.

ed now are not being led away in
handcuffs. This Tom DeLay's indict-
ed on a felony and he's still walking

arrested and ... in handcuffs? The
Republican Party is dying ...
Truman tactics
I am a subscriber for the
Chronicle. I was just sitting here
thinking ... I've got the right answer
and the only answer to bring our
troops back home now. Why don't
we get a president like President
Truman? They meaning the

thing to them, just like the Iraqis
are doing. So we went over there
and we nuked the whole part of the
country of the world over there, and
in eight, nine, 10 days after, our
troops were back home, just about,
because the war was over ... We
need something done now.
Brain-numbing noise
Someone help me. I can no
longer tolerate the brain-numbing
noise from airboats. Labor Day
weekend was unbearable; four days
and nights of continuous harass-
ment. Don't tell me to move, that
you were here first. My home is on
the market, but no one wants to pay
high taxes and live with this harass-
ment. The CCC, our cowardly coun-
ty commissioners, refuse the pleas


tax base and ensuring high-pay-
ing jobs have long been identi-
fied as critical needs for our
community. Progress Energy
currently provides about one-
third the tax base for the county
and provides employment to a
wide array of professionals.
Is it a call for us to say: Please
build the new plant here,
Progress Energy. We want your

No. Progress Energy, clearly, is
a business. Every

its employees are an integral

greatly support the United Way
and numerous charities; they're
involved in our schools and they
share our love for this unique
part of Florida.
In more than one sense,
Progress Energy has energized
Citrus County. The opportunity
to have an additional plant built
here should spark intense inter-
est among those seeking to build
a stronger Citrus County for gen-

it appeared it had been compro-

me the e-mail was not legitimate; it
was part of a fraudulent scheme to

but forward it to abuse@

Bank holdup
I'm calling in regards to the slow

about people taking too long. I also
think (a bank) should do something
about their drive-through. The first

and coin deposits. However, there's
always people in there that are
doing regular little slip deposits and
it should be used for commercial. I
think they should use the other
lanes and (the bank) should fix that.


Delayed justice won't aid DeLay


DOUGLAS COHN
AND ELEANOR CLIFT
Special to the Chronicle
The clock is ticking for Tom
DeLay Forced to step down as
majority leader because of what
he says is a politically-inspired indict-
ment, his career is over unless he can
quickly resolve the charges against
him. The lawmakers who have moved
in to fill the void left by DeLay are
strong personalities in their own right
and won't easily yield power without
assurances that DeLay's legal prob-
lems are over.
The indictments brought by Texas
prosecutor Ronnie Earle are not
strongly grounded in the law and may
not stick. DeLay's attorneys sought to
have the first charge of conspiracy to
commit money laundering dismissed
because Earle had relied on a law that
became effective after the alleged
crime was committed. Earle retaliated
by filing a second indictment that
directly accuses DeLay of money laun-
dering, a serious charge that if it
results in a conviction would mean a
lengthy prison sentence.
Maybe Earle has the goods, but the
indictment has the look of a prosecu-
torial fishing expedition. The belief
among Democrats is that what DeLay
did in Texas is reprehensible, and that
he should be convicted of something.
But a jury can't convict because they
don't like DeLay and think he has
abused his powers as an elected offi-


Other VOICES


cial. There has to be specific evidence,
an e-mail or a witness linking DeLay to
a scheme to pull corporate money out
of Texas and then return it via the
Republican National Committee to
state races that benefit the GOP
It is illegal under Texas law for cor-
porations to fund state political cam-
paigns, and the DeLay defense that
these were separate pools of money
strains credulity if only because
money is fungible. If a drug dealer
relied on that defense, he would be
laughed out of court. Yet the burden of
proof is on Ronnie Earle, a Democrat
who Republicans say has turned his
pursuit of DeLay into a vendetta.
Campaign finance laws are compli-
cated, and the Texas law governing
corporate contributions is archaic. If
DeLay is acquitted, which is possible,
he will attempt to.re-claim his position
of power in the House of
Representatives. Unless he is exoner-
.ated in record time, the likelihood of
his coming back as leader is very
small. Republicans are nervous about
their standing with the public as they
approach the midterm elections in
November '06, and they don't want to
face the voters with a tarnished leader
as the public face of the party. House
Republicans will vote on their new
leaders in early January, which means
that DeLay has until roughly January
1st to clear his name.
According to polls, voters have such


a low regard for Congress that they're
ready to believe the worst. When
politicians trade charges, it's like one
Mafioso knocking off another Mafioso.
The challenge for DeLay is that even if
he gets out of the Texas indictments,
he's vulnerable to new charges in
Washington stemming from a federal
criminal investigation into lobbyist
Jack Abramoff, whose legally ques-
tionable activities on behalf of Indian
tribes and their casino franchises net-
ted his firm $82 million in fees. DeLay
was a recipient ofAbramoff's largesse,
which included golf trips to Scotland
and lodging in the finest hotels. The
two men are linked in a network of
relationships and Delay's former
spokesman, Michael Scanlon, has
been indicted in the probe.
An Abramoff trial is expected next
summer and could prove embarrass-
ing for a party that gained power 10
years ago with a reform agenda. DeLay
stretched the law in his relationships
with lobbyists and his fundraising
prowess in order to achieve a perma-
nent Republican majority. Now that
majority is threatened, and nobody
should be surprised, least of all DeLay.

The highs have included times buying clothes was more fun. Once in
when I've mustered the courage to a while, I'd venture out and try to be

dress shirt once, but that's another
story, for another time.
Nowadays, I've settled into a stan-
dard wardrobe. My new clothes look
just like my old clothes, except in a
size that fits the new me. Thinking on
it, there's always been a part of me
that didn't want to give up a suit once
I found one I liked.
Thirty years ago, I was thin. Not
only was I thin, but as I've always
been, I was short I was little. I was a
grown man, married with three chil-
dren, examining banks for the state of
Florida, but I bought my suits in the
boys' department at Penneys because
it was the only place I could find any-
thing to fit Then, I learned firsthand


about middle-age spread. As I began
to fill out, I needed bigger clothes, but
hated to give up what I had, especial-
ly a certain gray plaid suit
My wife did me a favor. She cleaned
out my closet and gave my clothes
away so I'd have to buy new stuff. She
gave my favorite suit to our church for
a rummage sale.
I wanted another gray plaid suit. We
were living in Tallahassee at the time,
so I searched in all of the malls. One
day, in Maas Brothers at Governors
Square, I saw a young, thin salesman
wearing a suit just like the one I'd
been forced to give up. I approached
him and asked if the store sold a suit
like the one he was wearing.


He looked at me sheepishly and
replied, "No, I didn't buy it here."
I was about to pursue my question-
ing, but my sweetheart ushered me
away.
I asked, "What? His suit looks just
like my gray plaid you gave away!"
She smiled, "I didn't want you to
embarrass him."
"Embarrass him?" I queried.
"Yes," she whispered, "I know
where he got the suit. He bought it at
the church rummage sale. I sold it to
him. It not only looks like your old
suit, it IS your old suit!"

Racist issues
The only reason that I take issue with the
Chronicle's Editors is when I'm subjected to
the verbal sewage that the likes of Les Payne
spewed Aug. 22.
That you condone this racist diatribe toward
white Southerners, Republicans, Democrats,
whoever is available, by such a space-filler
. labeled as "Special to the Chronicle" is beyond
me!
Had I been technically able, I would have
responded immediately.
You had a caller (God bless them) that
reminded me of the remarkable piece of junk
that you printed courtesy of Mr. Payne.
Southern white men, by and large, have sac-
rificed lives and and prosperity, sir, to guaran-
tee that you might have the right to denigrate
and criticize white -Southerners.
Mr. (and I use that term loosely) Payne would
be better suited turning his rabid attention
toward Sudan, where people are still being
sold into slavery by Muslims, or toward New
Orleans where his efforts might be more effec-
tive representing armed thugs roaming the
streets.

Reverse the trend
It is impossible for any individual to imagine
the reality of the destruction of the Gulf Coast
as a result of the hurricane. It seems unreal to
look at pictures of all of the destruction.
Land and buildings can be restored. Lives of
the people affected are another story. Some
may be able to move on soon, but, for many,
their lives have been irreparably altered.
Families destroyed, homes and property gone,
no jobs, and what they knew as home will
never be restored.
This should be a wake-up call to political
and community leaders. Creating a large con-
centration of low-income people, overly
dependent on government, concentrated in
most major cities must stop. These people
need to be helped to upgrade their lives to live
a more fulfilling life.
For far too many years, a large block of our
citizens, mostly blacks, have been held down
by liberal politicians who lead them to believe
that they are taking care of them. One only has
to look at the sad condition these people live in
after being cared for by those liberal leaders
for more than 40 years to realize their lack of
concern.
At the same time, conservative leaders have
also failed this group. They have given limited
attention to the situation while it has contin-
ued to deteriorate.
With the catastrophe in New Orleans, it is
time for both sides to begin taking great strides
to reverse this trend. Do this instead of pre-
'tending the people in these sad conditions do
not exist or promising them great things just to
get votes, then ignoring them between election
cycles.
I have watched this scenario repeat itself
year after year, and have spoken out against it.
However, I am only one voice and it will take
millions more to begin the transition. This is
an opportune time to start

Free to speak
So a minister opened his mouth and every-
body listened. Horror of horrors, and a minis-
ter at that. Everybody decried his statement
Everyone assumed that what he said was "un-
American" and he should be cast out, put in
jail, lose his position in his church. But wait a
minute. Isn't what he said protected by the
First Amendment?
Shouldn't he be accorded the same rights as
the Islamic fanatics who can say anything in
the pulpits of their mosques, or in public, in
fact, anywhere they can gather more than one
dupe? What newspaper carries the diatribes of
these imams, mullahs and other radical funda-
mentalists? I know which newspapers carried
the Pat Robertson statement. Of course, they
interpreted this statement for the gullible. And,
of course, they didn't quote him correctly He
never used the word "assassinate."
Whereas the fanatics preaching hate, death
to Americans and anyone else who is not a fol-
lower of Islam (radical Islam that is) should be
put to death by any means. Is that not "freedom
of speech" of the worst kind?
By the way, Pat Robertson apologized for his
statement. I haven't heard an apology for 9/11,
the Cole bombing, the first World Trade Center
bombing or other illegitimate, irresponsible
'acts of terrorism all over the world. Have you?
How many acts of terrorism have been com-
mitted by Muslims in the past 20 years? I'll be
surprised if more than one average person can
remember more that two. How about the dates
they occurred (other than 9/11). There are
numerous Web sites and Internet sources that
carry this information. If you don't have a com-


the newspapers, they sell only current mur-
ders. Never forget 9/11, or that these fanatics
will kill you and your family for their unmerci-
ful God.

Red Cross salute
I would like to salute the Red Cross volun-
teers on the great job they're doing with the
Hurricane Katrina disaster.
Watching T, I see all kinds of politicians,
actors and many other persons, too numerous
to mention, volunteering their time to help. But
I have one question: Where is the head of the
Red Cross? Is this person too good to get out of
an air-conditioned office and help all the Red
Cross volunteers? After all, this person is mak-
ing a six-figure salary when the people in the
field are volunteers and take time away from
their families and even spend their own money
to help when disasters strike. They should be
the ones making the big salary.
I guess making that kind of money makes you
too good to get your hands dirty.

Shadowing Sheehan
No one denies Cindy Sheehan's right to
protest I, for one, feel her son would be morti-
fied at the fiasco she has created in his name.
Her talking points are not her own. She is
merely parroting what the anti-war gurus like
Michael Moore, George Soros, et al., have been
feeding her; the same as your letter is full of
Democrat anti-war and anti-Bush rhetoric.
Yes, we know talking points are circulated
among the Democrats, and they are encour-
aged to write letters to papers using those talk-
ing points.
Let's look at what she has been saying.
"I haven't felt like this since the Vietnam
War," She was 6 years old during the Vietnam
War. What does a 6-year-old know of war and
what kinds of feeling would they have?
"Why doesn't Bush send his two girls to
Iraq?" We have a full volunteer Army in the
United States. No one is drafted into the serv-
ice against his/her will. Cindy Sheehan's son
enlisted of his own free will. The President
doesn't personally send young men and women
to serve in Iraq.
Her husband and family disagree with her
protest Her husband has filed for divorce say-
ing, "Enough is enough." Our fickle press has
lost interest in her latest gig. I understand she
and her entourage are going to Maine to
protest the Blue Angels show, saying: "No one
should worship weapons of war."
I also understand that 55 percent of people
polled do not like or agree with Cindy
Sheehan.

Cause and effect
I watched CNN news at 3 p.m. Sept 2. A
report of a sniper shooting at medical people
while they were taking a patient from the New
Orleans hospital to a helicopter. The point I'd
like to make is this. We have troops in Iraq
hunting maniacs and we have plenty of our
own here, I've said it over and over in my let-
ters and Sound Off.
Another point I'd like to make: We have a
president who went through a surplus in his
first four months in office, and we now have a
huge deficit It started with tax breaks and
refunds.
Another more important part, most of us
realize. We have had close to 2,000 men and
women killed for a war that should have never
started. Saddam is in jail, and his country was
never a threat to the USA. In fact, Saddam and
his army couldn't save his own country, let
alone invade ours.
I'll end with this major point A high-ranking
Army National Guard officer made mention of
what his troops need in the disaster areas in
the gulf search and rescue. They need many
more helicopters to pick people from roof tops.
He said he could use 100 or more Humvees
and crews. The Iraq maniacs have been blow-
ing them up every week
I see the latest poll on G.W Bush job per-
formance, I'm not alone. The only thing he has
done right, was pick his father and Bill Clinton
to raise money for this latest disaster.
There are people in New Orleans who
haven't had food or water for four or five days.
Many still trapped in their homes, many in the
attics waiting for firemen to chop holes in the
roof to free them.
While this was going on, G.W Bush was in a
country club. He is now back in Washington.
What next?
You Republicans should be proud. G.W start-
ed a war, so the maniacs could vote. And we
had a court to put Bush in his first term.

Hot Corner: ROLLBACK


People speak
I just finished reading the
Sept. 29 guest column by Jim
Fowler. His article is still trying
to convince everyone that he
and Dennis Damato are the
only intelligent people on the
Board of County Commis-
sioners. He's having a hard
time graciously accepting .,
defeat. If I had his money, I
wouldn't care about the $11 or
even the $295 that he alludes
to, but I don't and many others
in Citrus County don't, either.
He ends the article with, "The
people have spoken." The man-
ner in which it is written is
meant to demean the intelli-
gence of the people those
same people that put him in
office. Jim, you lost. Give it up
and quit trying to tell the peo-
ple how much smarter you are
than they are.

Fowler. The other commission-
ers except Mr. Damato, who
voted for the rollback on taxes
again are only supporting
the rich, not the modest work-
ing and other retired citizens of

(less than) $100,000. But now

Remember that when you see
the working class in Citrus
County move elsewhere, and at
election time. Let's hope a hur-
ricane doesn't wipe out Citrus
County, as we don't have the
resources in place.
Key points
Jim Fowler's self-serving
Sept. 29 column misses two
key points: 1) It's not his
money, and 2) we, the people
he supposedly represents, want
it back. It's time to vote these,
tax-and-spend Republicans out
of office at every level of gov-
ernment beginning with the
county and ending with the
White House. Remember the
growing federal deficit of "X"
amount of trillions of dollars? I
can't even keep up with the
number. We need to get them
out.
Other factors
Mr. Fowler: I saw your article
on rollbacks. It was a spin spe-
cial and not accurate. You claim
the person with the $750,000
house would save $295. That's
blatantly false because you
failed to factor in his new high-
est assessed value for the prop-
erty. When that is taken into
consideration, his savings are
closer to $105, not $295. And


what about the savings to
Progress Energy if the
assessed value of net property
increased? If it did, they may
not have saved anything. Also,
you claim Progress Energy
won't give any savings back.
This I agree with ... As for the
people who rent rather than,
own a home maybe their' ;
rent will only go up $1 per
month instead of $20 per
month. After all, the landlord is
entitled to recover taxes eventu-
ally. He's not running a charity.
Every dime counts
Mr. Fowler: Just because a
family lives in a $750,000
house does not mean they are
rich. Indeed, most of the peo-
ple have every dime they ever
made after a life of hard work
tied up in their house, and, in
addition, may have a mortgage
that leaves them very little, if
any, discretionary funds. So
with their total tax bill going up
almost 10 percent a year
because of assessed value,
some may be forced to sell
their dream home because they
can no longer afford the taxes.
That, sir, is the sad fact.
Nothing is safe any longer
because of taxes.

Letters to the EDITOR


Stop flying
(The president is) telling
everyone to conserve gas while
he flies down to the disaster
areas seven times. He should
go back to the White House
and stay there until his term
expires and observe everything
going on in this country ...
How many times when gas
wasn't a problem did he go to
New York after 9/11?
We are winners
Who are the winners in the
worldwide oil-pricing picture?
You may be surprised to know,
even though you are feeling the
pinch, we all are. Here's how it
works: Crude oil costs about
the same to pump out of the
earth in the three major loca-
tions the USA, Russia and
Saudi Arabia. The other


notable locations are England,
with the North Sea, and South
America. First, the U.S.A. It's
easy to see by the large profits
that the oil companies and
their shareholders are making
that they are-winners, keeping
in mind we use more than we
produce. Russia, No. 2, sells
more oil than it produces. So
big profits for Russia a good
thing to help rebuild their
country, but look out when they
get back on their feet again. In
the meantime, they are a lesser
drain on the U.S. taxpayer for
assistance. In this way, as a
nation, we are winners.

Heavier cars
George Bush, for five years,
has been saying everyone
should drive heavier cars
because they'd be safer on the


'4'


highways. Now, all of a sud-
den, he says, you know, that
we're burning foreign oil and
we should try to conserve.

Floating prices
I would like to know what's
going on with gas stations. One
day you go to work and gas is
$2.79 You get up in the next
morning and you drive to work
and the gas is $2.99. You go
out to Crystal River and their
gas is $2.79. What is going on
with these gas stations? ... If I
knew whom to call up in
Tallahassee, I'd report them to
somebody, guaranteed. I would
call and I would report every
gas station ... because I think
it's ridiculous the way they're
raising the prices again. There's
no shortage, there's no hurri-
cane, so why raise the prices?

to use whatever phone compa-
ny works in your area and
they're turning around and tak-
ing money out of my pocket
and giving it to someone else.
Look, I don't have all that much
income myself and I think-this
is reprehensible. If I'm on food
stamps and government assis-
tance and welfare, I automati-
cally get money off my phone
bill? This is ridiculous.
Bumpy covers
Topic: Our thanks to our
county commissioners. The new
road on (County Road) 491 in
Beverly Hills ... just opened. It
will keep the mechanics in busi-
ness. The manhole covers are
like speed bumps. Our vehicles
will surely need front-end work
in the near future. RS. Do the
county commissioners ever
oversee the work done? The 6-
cent gas tax will also help
empty our pockets. People,
don't forget to vote.
Roll back gas tax
Hey, Jim Fowler, stop being
such a demagogue. If you're so
concerned about the poor, why
don't you roll back the gas tax?
You know, that's what the poor
really pay the most of, not the
property tax. You know, a good
Republican favors fewer taxes.


Sound OFF


So why don't you get onboard
and get with it.
Building refineries
I'm looking at the Wednes-
day, Sept. 28, edition of the
Chronicle and your political
cartoon shows the oil compa-
nies not willing to build refiner-
ies. The fact of the matter is
that groups like the Sierra Club
and Greenpeace, that your edi-
torial board is so fond of, have
prevented the building of new
refineries in this country for
close to 30 years. The fact of
the matter is, left to their own
devices, the oil companies
would build lots more refineries
because selling gas is how they
make their profits.
Close down borders
After reading Friday morn-
ing's Chronicle (Sept. 30) and
the article about our Jeb Bush
streamlining the immigration
- this is really upsetting news.
As long as we are paying out
for unemployment, we should
keep our borders closed and
remove those illegals, without
delay. Our citizens should'
come first. When all those col-
lecting unemployment are
working and there is a short-
age of workers, then maybe
relaxing the immigration poli-
cies may be warranted. But I
guarantee you, if all unemploy-
ment payment stopped, a lot
more Americans would be
working and earning a
respectable income.
Loving God
I'm calling in regards to
"Bass metal," that was issued
in Tuesday's (Sept. 27) paper. It
said that God would withhold
blessings from somebody ...
That's not true. God is a loving
God. God would never punish
someone because a person did-
n't like them or what they do.
Also, we have to remember that
not everyone is a child of God
unless they are adopted into the
family by the acceptance of
Jesus Christ. If you want to
know the difference between a
child of God and who is not,


Jesus said you will know them
by the fruits they bear. It's all in
the Good Book; you can check it
out. We have to be careful, as
children of God, not to deter
other people from him by say-
ing that God is not a loving God.
Seductive show
I am very appalled that
Citrus County is having in their
theater this seductive, horrible,
sexual thing for theaters when
we're going through so much
devastation ... I really thought
Citrus County was something
under God, and I cannot be-
lieve that we are allowing this
in our theaters here. I thought
Citrus County was different
than this. I'm just appalled,
especially a young 18-year-old
girl dressed like a floozy. I just
think this is horrible.
Long sentence
Thirty years? Thirty years in
prison for this young kid. It's a
travesty. I've never seen anything
like this. Thirty years and the kid
wasn't.even drinking, he wasn't
on drugs or anything like that.
He just made a mistake going
through a stop sign. Granted, it
was a terrible mistake; two lives
were lost, but now a third life is
lost. This young man is going to
go to prison and be a career
criminal when he gets out. It
turns you into an animal in
prison, especially for 30 years.
It's just unreal that this kid
could get 30 years. I feel terrible
for him ... This is just horrible ...
I'm white (and) got 12 months
over a similar incident. And the
kid didn't even have a driver's
license. Unreal.
Saving turtles
I'm just reading the article
about the Cooter Festival.
Republicans are going to serve
fried turtle, like the soft-shell
cooter turtle. And then under-
neath it, we have another arti-
cle about scientists trying to
save the species. That's just
very funny, isn't it? First we're
going to eat them and then
they're going to try to save
them. Very nice.


Opposite view
I have read John Blakeleys' rants and dis-
plays of his Orwellian ideology since he arrived
16 years ago, and after his last condemnation of
Democrats, I felt that I could no longer let his
caustic remarks go unanswered.
I am 78 years old and a veteran also, and
have no party affiliation and I am a registered
Independent I could not be more opposite than
Blakeley.
Please allow me to respond to some specifics.
First: You appear to be perfectly content in
letting right-wing extremists take away all the
values we fought for more than 60 years ago.
Second: Today, the right-wing extremists have
the likes of George Bush, who had a plan to get
out of Vietnam, but does not have a plan to get
out.of Iraq. Then they have Dick Cheney, who
was quoted as saying (and I heard him) that the
millions he made with Halliburton "None of
it came from the government", DUH.... Then
they have Tom Delay. There is no way I can
describe him with adjectives that,the editor
would not delete.
How did you arrive at the conclusion that the
Swiftboat crew proved that John Kerry was
lying? Maybe Rush Limbaugh, or Sean
Hannity? That was just another hatchet-job by
Carl Rove. By the way, was your beloved
George over there, or was he AWOL from the
Air National Guard?
Third: Your Right-wing Republicans have no
answers or solutions to the problems that they
created that are facing the nation.
Fourth: You did not arrive in the influx of
"clear-thinking" people, it was just a group of
right-wing zealots, and with gerrymandering
you got Brown-Waite elected, who immediately
in a typical Republican vengeful mode wanted
to dig up our veterans in
France, and rename French SHAR
fries, freedom fries because
France would not participate in THO
George Bushs' grand war plans. 0 Follow the

Blowing in change
For some time, it seems that the catalyst for
the change might well come from the streets,
but one never imagined how desperate and
heartrending would be the circumstances.
Any human being in America must feel pro-
found compassion for the suffering of the poor
people in New Orleans, who are poor not only
in terms of this catastrophe but in their circum-
stances. You've no doubt noted few white mid-
dle-class Republicans among the most desper-
ate.
But perhaps you did notice Air Force One, at
long last, circling the city briefly at a safe alti-
tude, which was probably most prudent since
we can only surmise what treatment the head of
government would have received from the des-
perate people at ground zero, or more appropri-
ately, at water-level.
With all their wretchedness and grief, per-
haps one day we'll look back upon the suffering
people of New Orleans with gratitude for finally
sparking the recognition of the electorate that
we need a government that does not twiddle
while New Orleans sinks, does not smirk as
Baghdad burns, does not sneak the corpses of
its soldiers back into America by night plane,
does not feed the greed-machine while children
go hungry.
Perhaps this disaster and the incompetence it
is dealt with will garner some changeover votes
for the loyal opposition. But I'll tell you one
thing, we deserve only to fall once more if we
again toot the uncertain trumpet, fight for the
appropriately colored stripe down the center of
the road, and cower in the corner lest we be
accused of not supporting-the-troops, "liberal-
ism," baby killing, anti-church, etc., ad nauseam.
We need to get across the message that the
loyal opposition takes a stand, not because
we're partisan, not because we want to win, but
because we're Americans and we want our
country to survive and to prosper
The truth is a weapon that is useless if not
used with courage. The message for the loyal
opposition is that the truth is on our side. All we
need to do is to grasp it bravely and put it to
work.

Silence will be noted
It seems to me curious that there has been
deafening silence from the "Right to Life"
movement concerning aborted and deformed


E



nr


fetuses resulting from America's decision to
use depleted uranium armaments in Iraq.
Depleted uranium is classified as a weapon
of mass destruction. Yet two "family values"
presidents have chosen to employ depleted
uranium armaments in Iraq exposing hun-
dreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians, and our
own sons and daughters to its toxic effects.
This is not a TV show, make believe, or a lie
this is reality.
Yet here in America silence.
The "Right to Life" movement is based on
moral grounds.
If you refuse to speak out now, then take the
bumper stickers off your car, abandon your
"Choose Life" license plates and reexamine
your belief system, for you can no longer claim
morality and these items become merely the
flags of hypocrisy.
The rest of the world knows America chose
to do this.
Many Americans know this was done in their
name.
Horror of horrors done in our name. For
me, this is a true desecration of the American
flag.
Family values? Children born with no eyes?
I believe God will note each individual
American's silence. May God grant you the
courage to speak out And may the wrath of
God not be visited on us all for this horror com-
mitted in our name.

Iraq facts
After reading John Bassett's "Listen to
Sheehan" letter to the editor in Thursday's
Chronicle regarding Cindy
YOUR Sheehan, the mother whose son
was killed in Iraq, and her end-
GHTS less quotes in the U.S. press, I
instructions felt compelled set the record
Opinion straight
id a letter to All Americans feel for any
parent or loved one who has
lost a son or daughter in that
nasty war, but Sheehan goes too
far when she implies that the President is a
lying villain, a coward etc, etc.
Which, the liberal press represented locally
by the Chronicle and the St Petersburg Times,
lap up.
While respecting men like Bassett who
fought in Vietnam and my brother and cousin
who fought in Korea, Bassett's assumption that
any Iraq constitution is a can of worms that
will be come to naught is something that men
far wiser than he on such matters haven't a
clue!
Only time will tell.
I too feel that any arrangement fashioned by
followers of a religion that gleefully sends its
children forth attired with dynamite belts to
blow up hundreds of fellow Muslims all seem-
ingly fighting for different sects is surely
doomed.
But Bassett's statement that "...Hussein kept
the patchwork together...where women were
freer than they are now" is a figment of his
imagination. Ask any Iraq woman!
And to toss in the comment that under
Hussein ... a Christian minority was allowed in
the cabinet implies that now they aren't, is
playing with unproven facts.
Then, as every liberal alive is wont to do,
Bassett to implies that Hussein simply doesn't
deal in weapons of mass destruction!
You might pass that one on to the tens of
thousands of Iranians and Kurds who
Hussein's thugs gassed ... the Iranians in a war
and the Kurds just because they bug him!
Despite the inept U.N.'s inspectors failing to
find any WMDs, why did we find thousands of
poison gas suits stashed all over Iraq when we
invaded it?

Attract more jobs
I must say I believe that our EDC may be
moving in a direction that will benefit our
county. I would like to see them place into
motion immediately so that we can try to take
a step to ending homelessness in our county.
We need to bring in some clean manufacturing
into this area. Unfortunately, we also need our
Board of County Commissioners to not hit
these companies with such a high impact fee,
that forces them to build in Sumter County
instead of Citrus like they did several years
ago.
Until our leaders will acknowledge that we
have quite a few homeless/displaced needy
families, nothing is going to change for the bet-
terment of Citrus County
But still, thank you for thinking in the right
direction, members of EDC.

AIRBOATS
Continued from Page 1C

that, law enforcement officials point-
ed out
Some residents have asked officials
to make airboats run at idle speed
near populated areas or ban them
from those areas. Airboaters chafe at
being singled out for being banned
from an area, much less a navigable
waterway they have a right to be on -
which might even include the public
boat ramp they use to launch. So idle
speed seemed a better compromise.
County Commissioner Gary Bartell
has said that if airboaters would just
use common sense and a lot of cour-
tesy, most of the problem would dis-
appear, and after a big public meeting
earlier this year in Homosassa, some
changes by airboat operators seemed
to have hel e t e' s. i -- i -


he says.
County asks for opinion
After wrestling with the issue and
listening to complaints for years to no
avail, Citrus County has now asked for
a Florida attorney general's opinion
on whether, when, where and how it
can create idle speed zones for air-
boats.
Mandated idle zones along populat-
ed areas might not solve the problem
for hardcore airboat noise haters, but
it could relieve some of the stress that
complaining residents say they are
subjected to when airboats crank up
the RPM's in their areas.
Before anti-airboaters get excited,
however, it seems the opinion may
already be foretold weighing against
idle speed zones because of existing
law.
In a very complicated, four-page,
single-space letter, County Attorney


his office interpreted the state laws
and administrative code as prohibit-
ing the county from adopting an ordi-
nance creating boating-restricted
zones near residential property "for
the purpose of vessel noise abate-
ment"
In essence, Battista is saying that
while the county has the responsibili-
ty and police power to protect citizens
from excessive noise, the state codes
about waterways appear to prohibit it
from doing so on the basis of noise,
and he is asking if that indeed is the
case.
The answer is anticipated
In the sense of' navigable waters,
Battista is correct in his reading of the
administrative code, according to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) spokesman
Williq Puz. The code says clearly such
zones can only be created because of'


last week that the opinion is pending,
but the state's administrative code
says that any speed restrictions must
be based on the danger to public safe-
ty due to traffic on the waterway -
not for noise or protection of the
shoreline or shore-based structures.
The FWC has to be involved in the
restricting of speeds on the state's
waterways and will investigate a
county or city proposal to create
speed zones on state waters. Any
restrictions allowed by FWC then
have to be posted by signs according
to certain requirement to be enforce-
able.
As the county awaits the attorney
general's opinion, it appears it
already knows the answer. But that
remains, officially, to be seen.
The study, possible relief
Because of the furor over the issue
in various parts of the state, the FWC

involved, and it is suggesting that bet-
ter mufflers, specialized propeller
designs and structural changes could
significantly reduce the noise from
airboats. The report, released Sept
21, recommended mufflers be
required and the final hearing on the
policy is to begin Nov. 30.
Puz said that one of the things that
came out of the hearings on the prob-
lem might offer a glimmer of hope.
State competition for quieting air-
boats was proposed, he said, and the
idea got a favorable response from
airboat industry and airboat owners.
So, short of changing the state
administrative code, the answers at
least in the near future, to reducing
airboat noise for residents, he.
offered, may come from ingenuity and
technology that is encouraged
through competition.
It is probably a safe bet that a lpt of

Things are looking up in Washington 'vineyard'


S( f[ these are the times of challenge
when the wine growers need to
work together We tend to blame
each other, and the level of our discourse
can sometimes be shrill and caustic and
uneven."
Cardinal Theodore E.
McCarrick preached those wise .
words at the annual Red Mass
on the Sunday before the
Supreme Court's new session.
"What happens in the vineyard
can happen to us in public life,"
he cautioned. "We must be care- ,
ful that we do not bring damage
to the vineyard and harm to the
wine growers." Cokie &
The cardinal's warning took Robe
on extra meaning the very next
day, when two important events
helped reduce the level of polit- '
ical acid rain that has been pol-
luting the vineyards of Washington.
First, President Bush named his White
House counsel, Harriet Miers, to fill the
Supreme Court seat vacated by Sandra
Day O'Connor. It was a clear gesture of con-
ciliation to Senate Democrats, and a deter-
mined attempt to ignore the hard-line voic-
es in his own party that were demanding a
holy war over judicial nominations.
Then House Republican leader Tom
DeLay was indicted a second time and
charged with breaking campaign finance
laws in Texas. DeLay may well be inno-
cent of these specific charges, but he has
already been reprimanded three times by
,fellow Republicans on the House Ethics
committee, and no single individual has
contributed more to the "shrill and caus-
tic" climate in the capital today
We have often criticized President Bush
when he played to his political base
instead of focusing on the public interest
His refusal to expand federal funding for
stem cell research is a good example. But
.he deserves praise for picking Miers,
despite enormous pressure to go for a
proven conservative ideologue.
No one knows what kind of a justice


e
!;


Miers will eventually make, but we do
know that the president picked someone
who was actually suggested by the
Senate's top Democrat, Harry Reid. And
we know that Reid responded with these
gracious words: "I'm very
happy that we have someone
like her."
Deflated conservatives like
Weekly Standard editor Bill
S' Kristol derided Bush for flinch-
ing in the face of declining poll
numbers: "Surely this is a pick
from weakness," he wrote. And
surely, a stronger president
might have made a different
Steven selection.
arts But Bush was also making a
positive contribution to the
political climate, continuing a
cycle of reasonableness that
started when 22 Democrats


backed his nomination of John Roberts as
Chief Justice. In an earlier column, we
urged Democrats to support Roberts for
exactly that reason to show the presi-
dent they were open to an armistice in the
escalating battle over judicial nomina-
tions. We can't read the president's mind,
but give him credit: he had the courage to
compromise.
Credit goes, too, to Reid, who ignored the
liberal interest groups in his own camp
that were spoiling for a fight. And to Sen.
Arlen Specter, the Republican chairman of
the Senate Judiciary Committee, who has
been working for months to disarm the
warring factions in the judgeship wars.
That's where the indictment of DeLay
comes in. The focus has been on his ethi-
cal lapses, and rightly so. Even fellow
Republicans like Rep. Chris Shays of
Connecticut are now ready to criticize
their own leader for "always pushing that
ethical edge to the limit."
But DeLay's sins go far beyond manipu-
lating campaign finance laws. He has
turned every corner of Washington into a
free-fire zone for partisan snipers and
undermined the institutions designed to

hold the powerful to account. One exam-
ple: he dumped the Republican head of
the ethics panel after that lawmaker
dared to bring charges against the majori-
ty leader.
Moreover, DeLay has brought to politics
exactly the kind of arrogant self-righteous-
ness that Cardinal McCarrick warned
against and that both sides displayed
during earlier judgeship confrontations.
When DeLay led the fight for Congress to
intervene in the Terry Schiavo case and
remove the fate of that comatose Florida
woman from state courts, he justified his
actions by saying, "Behind the law and I
would argue, above it is the universal
law of right and wrong."
When politicians set themselves
"above" the law, when they claim an
"absolute" right to disregard any "legal,
constitutional or political argument" that
contradicts their own view of "moral duty"
(to use DeLay's words), then they are play-
ing a very dangerous game.
So the rise of Harriet Miers and the
decline of Tom DeLay are both causes for
celebration. The capital's vineyards and
wine growers are in better shape than they
were a week ago.

Unnecessary trips
Logic tells me that President
Bush's excessive, very expen-
sive trips to the hurricane-dam-
aged areas are not necessary.
All-out-damage-control publici-
ty photo-ops are indicated at
the taxpayers' expense.
Expand highways
The article on the state of
our local emergency manage-
ment preparedness
prompts this ques- S
tion: If Tampa, S
Clearwater, St. Pete
and Sarasota were all
forced to evacuate
the coast like
Houston, would we
be prepared to han-
die the northbound
traffic of a million
evacuees who are try- CALL
ing to use 1-75, 1-4, 563-
U.S. 41, U.S. 19 and
U.S. 301? If anything
was ever proven, we need to
expand our highway system in
Citrus County.
Shelter for pets
I think Citrus County needs a
pet-friendly shelter for hurri-
canes, and I wish that the resi-
dents of Citrus County would
call their board of county com-
missioners and request a pet-
friendly shelter, evacuation
shelter, for hurricanes. *
Merely lucky
As a faithful reader of the
Chronicle, I have been living
here on the west side of the
county. I've been trying very
hard to find out what are the
disaster evacuation plans in
case of storms, big storms.
There's two months left of this
hurricane season, so I think we


ought to know. Well, today's
paper, the letter to the editor is
not advising us what is to be
done, but telling us what we
need to do, what we need to
invest in, what we need to
develop and what we need to
consider, but not that the coun-
ty commissioners have actually
decided on a plan. So what do
we do? Are we just going to be
the next set of news photos
showing us all drowning up
next to the ceiling, in
t the attics and so
forth, New Orleans-
style? It doesn't
sound very prudent,
commissioners. And
before the next elec-
tion, I would really
like to hear some
concrete plans, prac-
tical plans, followed
0579 by drills to know that
5 J they will work and
that the responsible
parties know their
responsibilities and not what
we should invest in and what
we need to develop and know
what we need to consider, but
what is to be done. Wake up,
fellas. We've been lucky and
that's all.
Editor's note: While the recent
editorial did call for a clarification
of roles among government agen-
cies and an enhanced emer-
gency plan, many details have
been addressed. To learn more,
go to Chronicleonline.com and
under the "Special Sections" area
call up "Hurricane '05." The
electronic version of the
Chronicle's annual hurricane
insert offers many specifics of
interest to the public. Much of the
information was developed by
county emergency management
personnel.

Letter to the :-


Katrina thanks
Our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchil-
dren arrived at our home in Homosassa at 5
a.m. Monday after a hurried escape from their
home in Biloxi, Miss.
With them was the little they could grab
'before fleeing, but we are grateful as they
'arrived alive.
It has been a long week since Katrina hit the
Gulf Coast. We would like to thank all the kind,
generous people who have helped us since that
time: Meadowcrest Family Practice, which
generously gave time and medications to treat
their medical problems; the Lecanto school
district, which welcomed the children; and
Crystal River Music, which has given a band
instrument for three months, so the children
can try to resume a "normal" school experi-


ence.
We are especially grateful to West Coast Eye
Institute for helping with contacts and other
services and Crystal River United Methodist
Church for their love, compassion and gener-
ous gifts to help our family until we can get
them back to work and home.
We ask you to continue to pray for our
friends and relatives who are still alive and
struggling on the coast and those people who
had to endure the horrible aftermath of
Katrina in New Orleans. Our son and daugh-
ter-in-law will soon return to the coast to see
what they can salvage and to help rebuild their
home and community.
Thank you one and all.

Faith restored
When you least expect it, your faith in others
is tested and sometimes it brings surprising
results.
My wife and I are busy with relocating to
another state. One recent morning, I was to
secure another storage bay in Lecanto to house
our belongings and pick up more packing
boxes.
Later, I went to locate a bank pouch in which
I had cash and sensitive documents. That's
when I realized my worst nightmare was about
to begin. The pouch was missing.
I called and went to the two places I had
stopped. The pouch was nowhere to be found!
I checked the car and my wife checked the car
... many times ... nothing! Wait, I thought, I went
to the Inverness post office. The young man
checked the "lost and found box" and there
were two pouches, neither of which was mine.
By Sunday morning, we had searched the car
and the house and found nothing but frustra-
tion. I called the sheriff's office and reported
the loss. My wife and I considered the case
closed, but I could not release the thought that
this pouch had disappeared in broad daylight
and in my possession. We had the storage facil-
ity check security tapes. We retraced our steps
again.
But I forgot one thing there was a third
stop that morning.
The following week, I checked our phone
messages and found that a woman from the
Salvation Army in Inverness was trying to
reach me.
I called and found an angel on the phone -
the bank pouch had been folded into a shoe
holder that fits over a door.
I thanked this angel for not only finding this
pouch, but for her efforts in trying to reach us.
I cannot say enough about the wonderful
people of.the Salvation Army and the tremen-
dous work they do. This is why we always
donate to this organization. Our angel would
not accept a donation, but you can be sure that
the Salvation Army will be especially remem-
bered this Christmas season. It feels good to
have faith in your fellow man.

continued to bark just in case there was
any chance we could get back to sleep.
Sixty seconds after we climbed into
bed, the fire alarm produced a single
beep. The dogs barked again.
Sixty seconds later, it did the same
thing So did the dogs.
Apparently, the new fire alarms are
programmed to remind you that the bat-
tery has gone dead. You have no choice
but to replace it immediately even if
it is 3 a.m.
When we built our new home, we
thought a 10-foot ceiling in the living
room was a really good idea. Changing

unconstitutional because of the
fact that the speaker asked all
of the students to rise.
-The students were partici-
pating in a graduation ceremo-
ny for a middle school. The
principal had selected a rabbi
to read this invocation (school
name was in invocation, not
UCF). The court questioned
whether attendance at. the
graduation was really volun-
tary, even though one could
graduate without attending.
On a 5-to-4 vote, they said that
it was psychological coercion to
make the young people stand,
and it violated the "establish-
ment" clause of the
Constitution. I use this as an
example to show you how there


was not factored into that decision
I first pulled over a kitchen stool and
tried to reach the bleeping fire alarm.
While I could just touch it, I couldn't get
it unhinged.
It continued to bleep, and the dogs
continued to bark
It being 3 a.m., my next frustrated
thought was to get the broom and use
the handle end to beat the fire alarm
into silence. I'll admit now, that was an
emotional choice, and probably not my
best decision-making.
I took a few good swings at the alarm
and then caught sight of my wife stand-
ing in the bedroom doorway with her
arms crossed.
"What are you doing," she asked.
"Cleaning spiders," I lied. .
So I then went downstairs to the
garage to get the 10-foot ladder we had
purchased for these special occasions.


is much hair-splitting in these
cases.
Steven L. Micas, attorney for
the city, spoke about his
involvement in the case of
Simpson v. Chesterville Board
of Supervisors. A problem
developed when Cynthia Simp-
son, a witch, asked to be includ-
ed on the list of persons
allowed to lead the prayer that
opened each board meeting, or
that the board stop the opening
prayers altogether.
In 2003, a lower court ruled
in Simpson's favor. But the rul-
ing was overturned by the
Fourth Circuit in 2005. A peti-
tion has been filed by the ACLU
asking the Supreme Court to
hear this case. What comes
through, after listening to a full
day of discussion, is that much
of what we are considering
today was not considered by
our Founding Fathers.


My first thought was the headline in the next
day's newspaper explaining why the publisher
was standing in the river in his pajamas with
a ladder at 3 a.m. when he was attacked.


The ladder was too big to come back up
the stairs, so I had to open the garage
and walk around the backside of the
house to take the 10-foot contraption up
the back steps.
We live on the Crystal River, and it's
sometimes difficult to remember at 3
a.m. that tides very much impact exact-
ly where the river begins and ends.
That's how I managed to be standing in
the Crystal River in my pajamas at 3
a.m. with a 10-foot ladder
The tide had come in and while I was


"Separation of church and
state" was not in the constitu-
tional debate, or the Federalist
papers, but was first discussed
in 1801 by Thomas Jefferson in
response to a letter from the
Danbury Baptist Church. A
number of our founders did not
believe in Jesus Christ, but
were deists. Each side tends to
argue that somewhere in the
writings or beliefs of out-
founders, there was a call for
more or less government in-
volvement in our religious lives.
Michael Cromertie, vice
president of the Ethics and
Public Policy Center in
Washington, talked about the
god-gap, and raised the ques-
tion: Is there a red god and blue
god, and who is doing better
politically?

Rebuilding gulf


coast will be a


long-term process


JACKSON, Miss. Home
builders eager to begin the
recovery from Hurricane
Katrina in Mississippi,
Louisiana and Alabama face
daunting hurdles shortages in
construction materials, a dis-
placed labor force and the
uncertainty of new building
requirements.
"We are not near the point of
rebuilding," said Rachel
Branch, executive officer for
the Home Builders Association
of the Mississippi Coast. "We
are still trying to collect our
things and grasp what has hap-
pened."
With tens of thousands of
homes damaged or destroyed in
the Aug. 29 storm, members of
the Florida Home Builders
Association briefed their
Katrina-stricken counterparts
Wednesday and Thursday about
what to expect in the recovery
and how to marshal their forces.
Participants showed great
interest in joining a Web net-
work created by Florida State
University researchers and
funded by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency that links contractors
with suppliers, labor and jobs.
The Disaster Contractors
Network site was activated for
the first time last year for
Florida after four hurricanes
battered the state.
Mississippi Gov. Haley
Barbour has formally requested
Mississippi to be included in the
network. Louisiana and
Alabama are considering join-
ing as well.
SEven with that in place,
builders said they worry about
finding subcontractors still in
.business after the storm, a labor
force left homeless or disrupted
by the evacuation particularly
near New Orleans and delays
in restoring infrastructure.


"There is not going to be a lot
of rebuilding going on when
there is no cell phone service,
power service or water service.
There is a path to this stuff,"
said Douglas Buck, director of
government affairs with the
Florida group.
"What we are trying to do is
make sure our guys are ready
when the community is ready,"
he said.
Lumber prices already were
rising because of a general
homebuilding boom. Shortages
of concrete and drywall were
common. That's only expected
to worsen. Stiffer building
codes may raise building costs
even more.
FEMA is currently mapping
areas flooded by Katrina's
storm surge along the battered
Gulf Coast. That could lead to
changes in local building stan-
dards, requiring some homes to
be elevated, for instance, or
barred from being rebuilt in
areas considered too risky.
Delays over insurance settle-
ments and hesitance by insurers
to write new policies in the hur-
ricane's wake also could slow
the process, builders said.
Katrina damaged or
destroyed more than 27,000
homes in Mississippi. In one
Alabama county alone Mobile
County Katrina destroyed 547
homes and damaged nearly 900
others.
Damage estimates are still
unavailable for Louisiana,
where flooding remains a prob-
lem.
So how long will the rebuild-
ing take?
"It is unknown," said Jeannie
Dodd, executive vice president
of the Louisiana Home Builders
Association.
"We don't know what we
don't know yet. We haven't got-
ten that far."


Donna as her mom, but as the
one who is there for every soc-
cer game, school function, and
home for dinner every night
after a day in the office.
Her activity in her church and
the West Citrus Soccer Club sets
another fine example for her
daughter.
All of us here at the Citrus
County Builders Association
want to thank Donna for a job
well done.

Richard Gelfand is the associ-
ate vice president of the Citrus
County Builders Association.

Wal-Mart A dry-erase board advertis-
es promotional CD rates or other spe-
cials.
"Basically, they're trying to get the
name out that we're there," D'Amico


said.
She estimated that about 35,000
people come through the Wal-Mart
SuperCenter in Inverness every day.
She said the goal for deposits at the
new bank is $3.5 million in the first
year.
One of the reasons to promote the
bank from inside the store is that the
Money Center has no signage outside


advertising its presence.
D'Amico said SunTrust started
opening Money Centers after it
merged with National Commerce
Financial Corp.
"They were going into all of the Wal-
Marts," she said. "When we pur-
chased them, we assumed their con-
tracts."
D'Amico said the 15-year contract


with Wal-Mart started in 2004.
"They've done very well," she said.
"There's a lot of people that go into
Wal-Mart every day"
Wal-Mart spokesman Marty Heires
said Wal-Mart has about 1,100 bank
branches in Wal-Mart stores nation-
wide and the retail chain is actively
seeking more, because that's what
customers want.


"The strategy is to create a one-stop
shopping environment for our cus-
tomers," Heires said.
"They have told us repeatedly that
they value the presence of a bank in
the store so that they can pay their
bills or do their banking right there
and they don't have to go someplace
else to take care of those needs," she.
said.

that Bryan Nelson celebrates five
years of association with the local
alarm and home theater design
and installation company.
Nelson is project manager for
the firm and has worked his way
up from the posi-
tion of installer.
He coordinates
the customers'
desires and the
system design .,
with the builders'
tight schedule so
that systems are
installed in a way Bryan
that minimizes Nelson
exposed wiring.
Nelson enjoys helping cus-
tomers get home theaters that
many only dream of:
"If I can assist a customer with
understanding his or her system
better, then I have done the right
thing and it is a good day."
His love of electronics dates
back to his days in the U.S. Navy.
"I have always loved following the
newest technology," Nelson said.
"We are very happy to have
Bryan as part of our team," said
business owner Jarey Schlabach.
"His contribution is vital to our suc-
cess in the home theater industry."
