While people stay tucked away in


their cozy homes for warmth during
these couple of nights, Citrus County
Fire Rescue spokesman Tom McLean
warns people to be safe when using
space heaters.


"They account for a large percent-
age of fires," McLean said.
Supplemental heating equipment,
such as electrical and kerosene space
heaters, is the leading cause of home
fires during the winter months and
trails only cooking equipment as the
leading cause of fires year-round,


McLean said.
He suggests people use units that
have been approved by a safety testing
company. Also remember to keep bed-
ding, clothing and other flammables at
least three feet away from heaters.
":Also, don't leave them on when
you're not in the room," McLean said.


According to the National Weather
Service's Web site. temperatures are
expected to dip to a low of 29 degrees
tonight. Monday is expected to get back
up into the mid 50s and then down to a
low of 27 degrees Monday nighL

close in a little bit more.

elected in 1996 is -"woefully inadequate"

Yerman said of available room.
With many court employees and consti-

Howard Wilson provided herbs and
remedies to African Americans int the
area when doctors were scarce.
Archie Dabney taught school and
coached in Citrus County for 40 years and
is best known for his "huge heart."
Robert Collins was instrumental in get-
ting a secondary school for local black stu-
dents and founded the first NAACP
branch in Citrus.
These leaders and others are being
honored at the Old Courthouse Heritage
Museum as part of the Black History
Month Celebration.
Saturday, community members canie
out to the Inverness museum to see the
Black History Month exhibit, which also
featured more than 40 historical photo-
graphs of African Americans.
Inverness Councilwoman Sophia Diaz-


Fonseca and Kathy Turner Thompson
have worked on the historical exhibit
since summer as part of their thesis proj-
ect for the master's degree at the Univer-
sity of California. The women developed
moveable exhibits, as well as curriculum
so that the museum's educational coordi-
nator, Laurie Diestler, will be able to take
them into local classrooms for children.
"We. wanted an exhibit that could be
put in an auditorium or in a classroom,"
Fonseca said. "It's very visual."
The highlight of the celebration for
many visitors Saturday was a painting
demonstration given by Highwayman
artist Robert L. Lewis.
The Highwaymen were a group of
black artists from the Fort Pierce area
who traveled throughout Florida' during
the 1950s, selling Florida landscape
paintings from car trunks and door-to-
door for $25 to $35 each.
Many museums and galleries didn't
allow black artists to have displays at the


time, Lewis's son, Robert Lewis III, said,
as his father painted a landscape for
guests to see..
"He decided to pay tribute to you all in
a personal way," Lewis III said, explain-
ing the scene being painted was inspired
by the Withlacoochee.River
The painting was later auctioned, with
a starting bid of $800, to Rodney Greer of
Inverness. Lewis' paintings, as well as the
other Highwaymen paintings, are worth
thousands of dollars.

* Second verse, same as the first.
-* --- The Crystal River City Council on
Monday will go through the second
process of approving an ordinance allow-
-- -- ing voters on Nokomis Point to decide
whether they want to be annexed into the
city.
- -- The council did the same thing in
January. Afterward, City Attorney Anthony
* Perrone realized he misinterpreted a
o state law about annexation. '


* WHAT: Crystal River City Council
meeting.
WHEN: 6 p.m. Monday workshop,
regular meeting at 7.
WHERE: City hall on U.S. 19,

A law requires at least 30 days from final
passage of the ordinance before the refer-
endum; the council originally passed the
ordinance on Jan. 9 and set the election
for Jan. 31.
Council members will how go through
two more public hearings on the annexa-
tion. The vote is tentatively set for April 4.
Plus, the Citrus County Supervisor of
Elections will oversee the vote. Ballots
will be mailed to registered voters' on
Nokomis Point, and the office will count
ballots that return by 7 p.m. April 4.


Nearly all residents on Nokomis Point
want the annexation so they may. receive
sewer service from the city.
Residents say septic tanks and drain
fields on the street are faulty and regular-
ly empty into canals that line both sides of
the street and empty out in the Crystal
River.
Monday's agenda also includes:
The first reading of an ordinance
allowing owners of Styrofoam docks more
time to either enclose the docks or remove
the Styrofoam.
An update on the city's request to the
owners of Pete's Pier Marina to sell the
property to the city at an appraised value.
A 6 p.m. workshop on the feasibility of
creating a paintball park in the city.
A request from the city manager to
conduct a city hall space-needs study

which she said would be necessary if an
office were put in city hall.
But Damato acknowledged other
offices, such as the county administrative
offices in the courthouse. could possibly
be moved there.
DiGiovanni is convinced minds will be
made tip once people attend a March
grand opening ol'the building.
"We strongly suspect." he said, "there
will be strong interest generated in the
building and available space."


fingerprinting and booking
inmates, in Hernando County
won't be duplicated in Citrus
because the sheriff's office has
always provided the service
here. In Hernando County, CCA
fingerprinted and booked in
prisoners at the jail.
CCA is sending a team of risk
assessors to all its facilities in
Florida to review operational
procedures and assure a safe
environment for prisoners,
Wesch said.
"We will continue to monitor
the facility and make sure that
our inmates.are being handled
properly," Wesch said.. -

from crowds.
In observiing the flu season, you might
even want to greet people verbally rather
than shaking hands, one health profession-
al offered.
The state health department shows that
at the end of January, the last reporting
S-period, Citrus-was one of the least affected
areas of the state .as: far as confirmed,
reported flu cases. .
At Seven Rivers Regional Medical
Center, spokeswoman Dorothy Pernu said,
"Yes, we have seen an increase in the last
couple of weeks for flu and pneumoniaa"
but she added'that this was not out of the
ordinary for this time of the year.
It was the same at Citrus Memorial.
Hospital, where Rebecca Martin said no


SPACE HEATER SAFETY TIPS
. Keep space heaters at least three feet away from anything
that can burn.
* Only use kerosene heaters in well-ventilated area, fill them
only when the heater is completely cool and use only the
manufacturer's specified kerosene. Never use gasoline.
* When buying heaters, choose ones with automatic shut-off
features.
* Don't leave heaters on unattended or before going to bed.

should be covered with tented
sheets, pets should be brought
inside or provided with shelter


significant spike in flu cases had been seen
in the emergency room, though she had
heard some of the area clinics had been
seeing cases..
The flu season is somewhat unpre-
dictable, with 5 percent to 20 percent of the
population getting infected by the virus in
a given year, putting an average of 200,000
people in the hospital, according to the
federal Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Infection can lead to serious complica-
tions, such as bacterial pneumonia, dehy-
'dration,. and worsening of chronic "condi-
tions such as congestive heart failure.
Children can get sinus problems and infec-
tions. About 36,000 people on the average
die from the flu each year
Flu usually has a rapid -onset, Nayfield
said. One hour one is feeling fine and the
next a fever has set in with that sick feeling
and respiratory distress. If the.onset, say
with the fever, is gradual it's probably not
influenza, she said. Sometimes the flu sea-.


* and blankets, exposed pipes
should be left dripping slightly
and people should remember to
use safe heating sources.
"Hard freezes are forecast for
north and north-central Florida
on Sunday and Monday nights,
with freezing temperatures pos-
sibly extending into the areas
surrounding i .Lake Okee-
chobee," said State Meteorol-
ogist Ben Nelson.
."Wind chills near freezing are
expected for the metropolitan
locations in southeast Florida
on Monday morning." '


son can last into the spring.
Flu is spread in respiratory droplets
caused by coughing and sneezing, usually
from people to people, though people can
be infected by touching something with flu
virus on it and then touching their mouth
or nose..
The Center for Disease Control says on
its Web site: "Most healthy adults may be
able to infect others beginning one day
before symptoms develop and up to five
days after becoming sick. That-means you
can pass on the flu to someone else before
you know you are sick, as well as while you
are sick."
Nayfield said she could not stress the
importance of washing hands and doing it
often. She said a rule ofthumb she learned
that's .easy to remember is to wash one's
hands with regular soap, rubbing vigorous-
ly at least about the amount of time it
would take you to sing the song "Happy
Birthday" twice.

DRUGS

(marketed as Symmetrel) and
rimantadine (marketed as Flu-
madine). These two protect
only against type A flu viruses,
but both type A and type B
viruses are common in most flu
seasons.
Also, both these drugs have.
side effects anid limitations in
fighting the flu virus.
On the other hand, while
health officials say flu shots are
the best defense against the flu,
the two better of the four medi-
cines, oseltamivir (Tamiflu)
and zanamivir (Relenza), do
have their uses. Both can be
effective with the strains being
experienced this season,
according to the Harvard
Medical School,' though .it


stresses that any anti-viral
drugs are limited in their uti-
lization ..'
SStill, oseltamivir can be help-:
SfiUl in preventing the flu, as
when someone in a household
comes down with it and protec-
tion for other members is
desired. Or it can be used in
close, closed communities such
as nursing homes.
In addition to prevention,
both oseltamivir and zanamivir
(which, is inhaled) can be used
for treatment of symptoms of
flu, though they only reduce
the average five-day flu symp-.
toins by a day or so if taken
within 48 hours of the onset of
the symptoms.
In mild cases, the. two drugs .
may not have much effect,'.
according to the Harvard med-
ical authorities, and they can.
cause side effects, such as nau-
sea and vomiting with

any of your questions. If you are a cancer sur-
vivor and would like to participate, call Tracy
Echols at (352) 684-2773. .
The Relay for Life is open to the public and
everyone is encouraged to come to this huge
"slumber party".
There will be volunteers, cancer survivors


and team members walking the track all night
long. Teams will have campsites all along the
track selling food, drinks and other assorted
items, with all proceeds going directly to the
American Cancer Society. Entertainment and

events prior to the actual Relay.

Raising baby


S 'e. 3al B O ie C rjr.ncle
Betsy Frank and her husband, Jim, are retired teachers from Lee County who experienced a vacation of a lifetime last June when they traveled via Munich, Germany,
to the 16-year -old country in southwestern Africa called Namibia. Namibia shares its southern border with South Africa, its northern border with Angola and its
northeastern border with Botswana. The primary goal of this 2005 trip was to visit a large and well-known national park in northern Namibia called Etosha. They
spent a second week visiting smaller wildlife parks. Mahango and Mudumu in the Caprivi Strip, where they saw hippos up close in the wild. Etosha is famous with
travelers for its dry season wildlife viewing opportunities at its many natural and manmade waterholes. There, you photograph from inside your vehicle and for your
safety, are not allowed outside the vehicle until you are safely "fenced in" at one of the park's three resort areas. These resort area gates are closed at dusk and
not reopened until dawn. All these resort waterhole areas are safely fenced for both viewing and photography. Through the night, they heard black rhinos grunt-
ing, lions roaring and all sorts of wild calls from the safety of the resort accommodations. At several other smaller private lodges, there were no fences. They took
hundreds of pictures with a digital camera, a Canon Rebel, usually with a 300 mm telephoto lens attached. This was such a photo, and it has not been cropped
or altered in any way from the original. It is of a mother and young zebra. The Franks now live in Homosassa.

As always, the gift show was
a showcase of lovely items from

attracted, tempted and teased
to "buy, buy arnd buy." Of
course, the label "Made in

most items, but we looked fuir-

We were attracted to a booth
that featured Murano crystal.

There also was a lovely display
of crystal, made: in Poland,
which is uniquely different. We
visited a booth which dis-
played "made only in Africa,":
but found, quite a few items
placed there because their
labels said "made in Bulgaria...
Indonesia ... Thailand," etc.
I finally succumbed and
bought a few aiirticles for St.
Valentine's Day, but come
August, Christmas items will be
displayed. I felt so proud of
myself to have stayed within


my budget.
By this time, we were ready
for a nice dinner. One of the
.managers suggested the

means Joe's Basement) restau-
rant in the Florida Mall. It was
a nice, surprise experience.

Panthers reach milestone


Lecanto nabs first-ever

district championship
ANDY MARKS
amarks@chronicleonline.com
,Chronicle
BELLEVIEW With 3:50 left in
Saturday's District 4A-6 championship
game, Lecanto center Collin Pugh fired
a wild pass high above teammate Ryan
Blakeslee's head. Blakeslee jumped
and extended his right arm to try and
reel it in, but the ball deflected off his
figertips.
And into the basket.


"I knew it was our night when that
one went in." laughed Panther forward
Eddie Buckley "That's when I knew
someone was looking down on us."
: It was Lecanto's night, indeed.
The Panthers took the reins away
from North Marion in the second half
and pulled away fora 64-55 win.
polishing off an undefeated run
through their district schedule
and wrapping up the first dis-
trict boys basketball champi-
onship in school history.
For Panther cbach Chris Nichols -
who was Lecanto's first coach in 1984
and returned for a second stint 12 years
ago, the win was certainly a long time
coming.


"This championship has been built
on the hard work of kids that played
from 84 to 88 -Frank Vilardi (former
Panther player and current assistant
coach) was part of that first four years
and all the kids who have been in our
program throughout the years,"
SNichols said. "That's what pre-
pared us to do what we've been
, 1R60 able to do with this team."
Blakeslee, one of five Lecanto
seniors, offered up a tale of air-
borne concentration, precise arm-
angles and pin-point redirection to
explain his flukish score on Pugh's
errant throw before finally breaking
into a wide smile.
"I'm lying." he said. "It was a random


deflection."
But there was nothing random about
hlakeslee's contribution late in the
third quarter, when he hit back-to-back
3s and scored eight straight points to
put Lecanto ahead for good.
"Ryan has sacrificed his scoring for
Ed (Buckley), Richard (Chaney) and
Mychal (Nichols)," Cluhris Nichols said.
"The thing is, if they get after those
three, Ryan can score."
Blakeslee proved it on Saturday, fin-
ishing with 12 points -all in the second
half. He was one of three Panthers in
double figures: Nichols finished with 15
and Chaney who was a menace in the

'Chronicle
Mike Musto knew prior to his
152-pound championship
match against Haines City's
Ronald Williams that a pin
would win him his. second
straight Region 1A-2 champi-
onship.
And when the Citrus senior
placed Williams' Shoulder
squarely upon the mat just 1:02
into the bout, the Hurricane
faithful exploded with delight,
and for good reason.k
The Citrus wrestling team


celebrated its first 'regional
championship in, school histo-
.ry Saturday night and Musto's
pin was the clincher,
"It felt good to know every-
one was ,behind me," said
Musto, who improved to 33-3
on the year. "I went out there
with.the mindframe that I had
to pin that guy."
Citrus scored 117.5 points
total to nip runners-up Pasco,
who totaled 115; In the 30-team
regional, Crystal River fin-
ished tied for eighth with Lake
Wales with, 70.5 while
SDunnellon grabbed 22 points
for a 24th place finish and
Lecanto .scored 20 'points .for
26th.
"It's a feeling you can't
describe,"' said Hurricanes
coach Rob Hermann.

14.
The balanced effort was sym-
bolic or Chris Nichols' system,
which stresses depth and time-
ly substitutions.
Case in point: the first quar-
ter. North Marion came out of
the gate inspired and scored
the first eight points of the
game while the Panthers were
riddled by turnovers and poor
shooting.
Nichols responded by yank-.
ing two starters for Bryan
Hamer and Jared Brantley,
who teamed up for five straight
points to get the Panthers on
track
"Our bench gave us a good
spurt early," Nichols said.
"When our first team couldn't
score, they came in and imme-
diately got something done.
This was a great team effort."
Pugh also played a key role
off the bench, battling North
Marion's Division 1 prospect
Sterlin James under the basket
and finishing with six points
and a team-high 11 rebounds.
The Colts (11-13) carried the
action before halftime and into
the third quarter before
Blakeslee heated up. By the
final two minutes, North
Marion's players were standing
around as Lecanto stretched
its lead.
"I think our press wore them
down," Nichols said.
It was the Colts' third loss to

wrestlers are two-tilme state
qualifiers.
.Jones was the one who was
on the mat when Loaring got
hurt; the Crystal River junior
picked Loaring up and
attempted to drop him down
but lost control. The result was
a body slam, which the refs
ruled intentional and disquali-
fied Jones.
Lecanto and Dutnnellon will
each send a single wrestler.

Dustin Whitelaw was the
Lone. Panther by advancing to
the consolation finals andout-
dueling Zephryhills' Beau
Barnes with a 13-5 major deci-
sion at 160.
Leone was the one to knock
Whitelaw into the consolation
finals after dealing him a 9-4
loss. What made the win even
sweeter for Leone was the fact
that Whitelaw had defeated
'him just a week earlier in the
district tournament at Citrus.
"I took third at districts,"
said Leone, who is now 26-8
overall and makes his first
appearance in Lakeland. "I

there, so that was pretty good."

"They just seem like they
pull some of our players out of
our gameplan and into their
gameplan," North Marion
coach Charlie Johnson said.
"That's been the biggest thing.
It started to get in our heads a
little bit We weren't concen-
trating on what we needed to
be doing on our end of the
floor."
James led the Colts with
game-high totals of 19 points
and 14 rebounds.
"He's going to get his points,"
noted Buckley, one of the
Lecanto post players charged
with containing James. "You
just have to make sure every-
one else doesn't get theirs."
Lecanto did that; Latrell
Baker finished with 13 but no
other Colt reached double dig-
its.
The Panthers (21-4) clinched
a home game to open the
Region 2-2A playoffs. They'll
return to action at 7 p.m.
Thursday against Green Cove
Springs Clay, which suffered a
57-36 loss to Port Orange
Atlantic in the 4A-5 champi-
onship game Saturday in St.
Augustine.
Lecanto has some practicing
to do before then.
"The stakes are higher now,
the intensity is higher," Chris
Nichols said. "We're going to
have to match that and step it
up. We want to get better.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
we've got to improve."
Saturday, the Panthers got to
celebrate.
"It's the first one ever,"
Vilardi said, "so nobody can
take that away from these
kids."

MLB SPRING TRAINING TEAM PREVIEWS


American League
A team-by-team look at the American
League entering spring training, including key
players each dub acquired and lost, and
reporting dates for pitchers and catchers, and
full squads:
EAST
New York Yankees
Manager: Joe Torre (11th season).
2005: 95-67, first place.
Training Town: Tampa, Fla.
Park: Legends Field.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 16/Feb. 21.
He's Here: CF Johnny Damon, RHP Kyle
Famsworth, LHP Ron Villone, LHP Mike
Myers, C Kelly Stinnett, INF Miguel Cairo,
RHP Octavio Dotel.
He's Outta Here: RHP Tom Gordon, 1B
Tino Martinez, DH-OF Ruben Sierra, RHP
Kevin Brown, C John. Flaherty, LHP.Alan
Embree, RHP Felix Rodriguez, OF Matt
Lawton, INF Mark Bellhom, INF Rey
'Sanchez.
Outlook: The $200 million Yankees rallied
from a poor start to win their eighth consecu-
tive division title last season, then were elimi-.
nated in the first round of the playoffs by the
Angels for the second time in four years.
General manager Brian Cashman was
retained with a three-year contract, but New
York had a relatively quiet winter with the
exception of luring Damon away from the rival
Red Sox. He fits nicely in the leadoff spot and
center field, though he doesn't throw well and
was slowed by injuries last year. With Derek
Jeter, Gary Sheffield, Alex Rodriguez, Hideki
Matsui, Jason Giambi, Jorge Posada and
Robinson Cano all back, the lineup comes
dose to a modem-day Murderers' Row.
Bemie Williams re-signed to take Sierra's
part-time, DH-OF role. So if everyone
remains healthy and productive, the offense
could break a few records. The defense, how-
ever, looks shaky and age is a concern.
No. 1 starter Randy Johnson, coming off a
mostly disappointing Big Apple debut, is 42.
Mike Mussina is 37 and he fell off consider-
ably the past two seasons. The rotation is cer-
tainly deep, but Chien-Ming Wang and
Shawn Chacon will have to prove themselves
again, while Cart Pavano and Jaret Wright
must show they can stay healthy and handle
New York. The bridge to unflappable closer
Mariano Rivera is brand new. Former ace
Ron Guidry replaces longtime pitching coach
Mel Stottlemyre. The rest of the coaching staff
includes three ex-big league managers: Tony
Pena, Larry Bowa and Lee Mazzilli.
Boston Red Sox
Manager: Terry Francona (third season).
2005: 95-67, second place.
Training Town: Fort Myers, Fla.
Park: City of Palms Park.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 18/Feb. 22.
He's Here: RHP Josh Beckett, CF Coco
Crisp, 2B Mark Loretta, SS Alex Gonzalez, 3B
Mike Lowell, 1B J.T. Snow, RHP: Julian
Tavarez,, RHP Rudy Seanez, RHP :David
Riske, C John Fisherty C Joi,h Bard
He's Outta Here CF Jor.nny Damonr 1B
Kevin Millar, SS Edgar Renteria, 3B Bill
Mueller, 1B John Olerud, C Doug Mirabeli;
RMP Jeremi Gonzalez, RHP Chad Bradford.
LHP Mike Myers, RHP Wade. Miller, RHP
Malt Marnle 1B Roberto Petagine, OF Adam
Hyzdu. C Ketty Shoppach
: Outlook: GM Theo Epstein resigned on
Oct. 31, then returned on Jan. 24 after dis-
cussions to improve his working relationship
with team president Larry Lucchino. He still
had a land in deals as Jed Hoyer and Ben
Cherington, who filled in as co-general man-
agers, consulted him. Johnny Damon joined
the New York Yankees as a free agent, but
the Red Sox replaced him as the center field-
er and leadoff hitter with Coco Crisp, who is
six years younger, eams about one-fourth his
salary and had similar hitting numbers last
year. The infield has four new starters and the
defense on the left side is outstanding.
Beckett is a top of the rotation starter with Curt
Schilling coming off an injury-marred season.
The bullpen is rebuilt, and Boston hopes
Keith Foulke can be a top closer again. The.
.,power punch remains witr. LF Manny
Ram.re: and DH Da~ ,I On': The Red Sox'
'f'tried to accommodate Ramirez's wish to be
traded but said they found no suitable offers.
The Yankees, and Toronto both appear to be
improved, so Boston could have a tougher
year in the AL East.
Toronto Blue Jays
Manager John Gibbons (second full sea-
'son).
2005: 80-82, third place.
Training Town: Dunedin, Fla.
Park: Knology Park.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 17/Feb. 22.
He's Here: RHP A.J. Bumett, LHP B.J.
Ryan, 3B Troy Glaus, C Bengie Molina, 1B
LyJe Overbay.
He's Outta Here: 2B Orlando Hudson, RHP
Miguel Batista, 3B Corey Koskie, RHP David
Bush.
Outlook: GM J.P. Ricciardi might have been
the most productive executive in baseball this
offseason, raising eyebrows when he gave
Ryan the most lucrative contract in history for
a reliever $47 million over five years. It was
just the beginning of an expensive makeover
for the Blue Jays, who also added Bumrnett,
Glaus, Overbay and Molina. Toronto, expand-
ing its payroll from $45 million to about $75
million, appears capable of contending with
the Yankees and Boston for a playoff spot.
The improved rotation includes former Cy
Young Award winner Roy Halladay, Bumett,
LHPs Gustavo Chacin and Ted Lilly as well as
RHP Josh Towers. Ryan is the closer of an
underrated bullpen. Glaus gives the Blue
Jays the power they lacked since Carlos
Delgado left as a free agent after the 2004
season.
Baltimore Orioles
Manager: Sam Periozzo (first full season).
2005: 74-88, fourth place.
Training Town: Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Park: Fort Lauderdale Stadium.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 15/Feb. 21.
He's Here:. RHP Kris Benson, C Ramon
Hernandez, 1B Jeff Conine, OF Corey
Patterson, 1B Kevin Millar, RHP LaTroy
Hawkins.
He's Outta Here: LHP B.J. Ryan, OF
Sammy Sosa, 1B Rafael Palmeiro, RHP
James Baldwin, RHP Jason Grimsley, OF Eli
Marrero, LHP Steve Kline, RHP Jorge Julio,
RHP John Maine.
Outlook: Angered over the Orioles' inability
to enhance their roster during the offseason,
All-Star shortstop Miguel Tejada asked to be
traded before rescinding his request. But he
certainly had a point. The addition of Benson
and Hawkins probably isn't enough to make
up for the loss of free agent Ryan, whom the
Orioles developed into one of baseball's best
closer. If pitching guru Leo Mazzone can
improve a young rotation and offer sage
advice to prospective stopper Chris Ray, and
if the Orioles can get power numbers from
Tejada, Jay Gibbons and Melvin Mora, then
perhapsthey can end their franchise-record
run. of eight straight losing seasons. At least
They wpn't have Palmeiro, whose suspension
for steroid use became a distraction in the
second half of the 2005 season.
Tampa Bay Devil Rays
Manager: Joe Maddon (first season).


2005: 67-95, fifth place.
Training Town: St. Petersburg, Fla.
Park:. Progress Power Park, Home of Al
Lang Field.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 16/Feb. 22
He's Here: 3B Sean Burroughs, RHP Shinji
Mori, RHP Dan Miceli, C Josh Paul, RHP
Edwin Jackson,
He's Outta Here: RHP Danys Baez, 3B
Alex Gonzalez, 1B-DH Eduardo Perez, RHP
Dewon Brazelton, RHP Lance Carter.
Outlook: New York investor Stuart
Stemberg has taken over as principal owner,
replacing founding managing general partner
Vince Naimoli, and Maddon replaced Lou
Piniella, who asked out as manager.
Sternberg has vowed to do whatever is nec-
essary make the club successful on and off
the field. That, however, doesn't translate into
a significant boost in the budget for player
salaries in 2006. That means the team with
baseball's lowest payroll will be hard-pressed


to escape last place in a division dominated
by the big spending Yankees and Red Sox.
CENTRAL
Chicago White Sox
Manager: Ozzie Guillen (third season).
2005: 99-63, first place, World Series
champions.
Training town: Tucson, Ariz.
Park: Tucson Electric Park.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 17/Feb. 22.
He's Here: DH Jim Thome, RHP Javier
Vazquez, INF-OF Rob Mackowiak.
He's Outta Here: DH Frank Thomas, DH
Carl Everett, CF Aaron Rowand, RHP
Orlando Hemandez, RHP Jose Vizcaino,
LHP Damaso Marte, OF Timo Perez, INF
Willie Harris, INF Geoff Blum.
Outlook: General manager Kenny Williams
didn't relax after the team won its first World
Series title in 88 years. Just the opposite.
Williams worked deals for Thome, Vazquez
and Mackowiak, and re-signed 1B Paul
Konerko to a $60 million, five-year contract.
Nine players from the championship team are
gone. Thome, saddled with back and elbow
injuries last season with the Phillies, could
give the team needed left-handed punch.
Vazquez will fit into an already strong rotation
and apparently send top prospect Brandon
McCarthy to the bullpen or back to' the
minors. Rowand's gritty play will be missed,
and Chicago is counting on rookie Brian
Anderson to take over in center field. Leadoff
hitter and base-stealing threat Scott
Podsednik is coming off hernia surgery but
will be ready for opening day. Guillen, the AL
SManager of the Year, is known to go with his
gut feeling; He is expected to move SS Juan
Uribe up to second in the order from ninth and
drop Tadahito Iguchi from second to seventh
so he will get. more RBI opportunities. Two
starters, Freddy Garcia and Vazquez, are
slated to pitch in the World Baseball Classic.
Cleveland Indians
Manager: Eric Wedge'(third season).
.2005: 93-69, second place,
Training Town: Winter Haven, Fla.
Park: Chain of Lakes Park.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 16/Feb. 21.
He's Here: RHP Paul Byrd, RHP Jason
Johnson, RHP Guillermo Mota,,1B Eduardo
Perez, 3B Andy Marte, OF Jason Michaels,
INF-OF Lou Merloni, OF Todd Hollandsworth,'
RHP Danny Graves, RHP Steve Karsay.
He's Outta Here: RHP Ke,,n Millwood,
RHP Bob Howry, RHP Scott Elarton, OF
Coco Crisp, C Josh Bard, RHP David Riske,
INF-OF Jose Hernandez, LHP. Arthur
Rhodes.
Outlook: Despite some shrewd offseason
signing and the trade that brought Marte, a
potential All-Star to Cleveland, there was
widespread criticism or GM Mark. Snapiro -
voted bo.ebaill lop evec in 05 for not
doing erougri to keep pace wihn ihe White
Sox. Replacing Millwood and Howry will be
the biggest challenge for the Indians, who
have to avoid another horrible start after going
-9-14 in April a year ago. Marte was the key
component in the deal that sefit Crisp to
Boston, and he could challenge Aaron Boone
if the veteran third baseman starts as poorly
as he did last season. Wedgie has done an
exceptional job with teams not necessarily
expected to compete. This season, he'll be
judged on whether he can get the Indians
back to the playoffs.
Minnesota Twins
Manager: Ron Gardenhire (fifth season).
2005: 83-79, third place.
Training Iowr, Fort Myers, Fla.
Park: Hammond Stadium.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 19/Feb. 24:
He's Here: DH Rondell White, 2B Luis
Castillo, 3B Tony Batista, OF Ruben Sierra.
He's Outta Here: RF Jacque Jones, LHP
J.C. Romero, RHP Joe Mays, 2B Luis Rivas.
Outlook: With an annually limited amount of
money to spend on enhancing the lineup, GM
Terry Ryan made a 'handful of. moves
designed to make Minnesota a better offen-
sive club. Will they work? We'll see. On paper,
it doesn't look like a whole lot, but if DH
Rbndell White and 2B .Luis Castillo :stay
healthy they'll be upgrades at those positions.
3B Tony Batista is a big unknown afterspend-
ing last season in Japan, but irat s another
place where it won't take much to be better
than what the Twins got last year. The onus is
on young slugging 1B Justin Momeau. to
bounce back from a hugely disappointing
season. Though the White Sox and Indians,
should be the early .favorites in the Central,
the Twins ought to be able to compete
because of their stellar rotation and reliable
bullpen. Starters Johan Santana, Brad
Radke, Carlos Silva and Kyle Lohse com-
prise a solid first four, with well-regarded
prospects Scott Baker and Francisco Liriano
fighting for the last spot. One could wind up as
a reliever for now, setting up All-Star closer
Joe Nathan along with righty Juan Rincon.
Detroit Tigers
Manager: Jim Leyland (first season).
2005: 71-91, fourth place..
Training Town: Lakeland, Fla.
Park: Joker Marchant Field.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 15/Feb. 21.
He's Here: RHP Todd Jones, LHP Kenny
Rogers.
He's Outta Here: Manager Alan Trammell,
OF Bobby Higginson, OF Rondell White,
RHP Jason Johnson.
Outlook: The biggest change in Detroit is in
the dugout, where Leyland takes over for
Trammell. Leyland spent the first 18 years of
his career in the Tigers system six as a
player, one as a coacn and 11 as a minor
league manager-- before getting the top job
in Pittsburgh in 1986. He won three division
titles with the Pirates and a World Series in
Florida. In Detroit, he'll be the toast of Motown
if he can just provide the first winning season
since 1993. Detroit missed out on most of its
free-agent targets for a second straight winter
but did strengthen the pitching staff with the
additions of the 41-year-old Rogers and 37-
year-old Jones. Rogers replaces Johnson in
the rotation, while Jones, the man Emie
Harwell nicknamed "The Roller Coaster,"
resumes his closing duties after leaving
Detroit in 2001. Phenom RHP Justin
Verlander, the No. 2 amateur draft pick in
2004, could leave spring training with the fifth
spot in the rotation. With no new faces on
offense, the Tigers hope SS Carlos Guillen's
right knee lets him regain his 2003 form, and
C Ivan Rodriguez rebounds from his worst
offensive season in more than a decade.
Kansas City Royals
Manager: Buddy Bell (second season).
2005: 56-106, fifth place.
Training Town: Surprise, Ariz.
Park: Surprise Stadium.
SReporting Dates: Feb. 17/Feb. 23.
He's Here: RHP Scott Elarton, LHP Mark
Redman, RHP Joe Mays, OF Reggie
Sanders, 2B Mark Grudzielanek, 1B Doug
Mientkiewicz, RHP Elmer Dessens, C Papl
Bako, RHP Joel Peralta.
He's Outta Here: RHP Jose Lima, OF
Terrence Long, RHP D.J. Carrasco, RHP
Shawn Camp, LHPBrian Anderson.
Outlook: The Royals had the worst record
in the majors last season and went through
three managers: Tony Pena, Bob Schaefer
and Buddy Bell, who had a 43-69 record after
he was hired on May 31. The pitching staff


had the worst ERA (5.48) in the league, a
franchise high. To correct that, the Royals
acquired three veteran starters Elarton and
Mays as free agents and Redman in a trade.
The Royals are hoping Sanders, who should
'bat cleanup, will provide protection for DH-1B
Mike Sweeney, a five-time All-Star who hit
.300 with 21 home runs last season. The
Royals topped the majors with 125 errors, but
the addition of Grudzielanek and
Mientkiewicz should cut down on the infield
miscues. The bullpen was a strength with
RHP Mike MacDougal converting 21 of 25
save opportunities. LHPs Jeremy Affeldt and
Andrew Sisco and RHP Ambiorix Burgos
complemented MacDougal. Burgos aver-
aged 9.24 strikeouts per nine innings and
Sisco 9.08, ranking first and second among
major league rookies. The Royals should be
improved after signing seven free agents, but
are still probably doomed to a 90-plus loss
season. After losing 100-plus games in three


of the past four years, 90 losses would be a direct Baltimore's staff.

He's Outta Here: SS Rafael Furcal, RHP
Kyle Farnsworth, C Johnny Estrada, 1B Julio
Franco, RHP Dan Kolb.
Outlook: After winning their 14th straight
division title and disappointing in the playoffs
again, the Braves did some minor tinkering
during the offseason. Furcal was the biggest
loss, going to the Los Angeles Dodgers as a
free agent, but GM John Schuerholz moved
quickly to secure Renteria, who had a disap-
pointing season in Boston. The biggest queds-
tions heading into spring training are the
health of RHP John Smoltz (he says his arm
feels great) and the shaky bullpen.
Farnsworth finished 2005 as the closer, then
moved on to the New York Yankees.
Schuerholz failed to land a replacement dur-
ing the winter meetings, but it's hard to imag-
ine the Braves going into the season with
Chris Reitsma as their closer. Look for anoth-
er deal before opening day. The Braves
expect Adam LaRoche to become a fulltime
starter at first base for the first time, while
Ryan Langerhans may have to hold off Kelly
Johnson in left field. Marcus Giles might move
from his normal No. 2 spot to the leadoff role.
Horacio Ramirez and Kyle Davies will com-
pete for the No. 5 spot in the rotation.

Outlook: The Astros reversed a 15-30 start
and made their first World Series despite
scoring only 693 runs, 24th in the majors.
They've added a bat in Wilson, who hit 25
homers for Colorado and Washington last
season. But his arrival pushes at least one
man out of a crowded outfield.. Lance
Berkman would move to first if Bagwell is
deemed, unable to play and his dispute
with the Astros over whether he still' can is
ongoing. If Berkman joins Wilson in the out-,
field, that leaves speedy Willy Taveras and
postseason stars Jason Lane and Chris
Burke to fill the' final outfield positions.
Clemens could rejoin the Astros on May 1,.
but he could also retire or sign with another
team. If he leaves, that hurts one of the
league's best rotations. Clemens had base-
ba ls lowest ERA'(1.87) in 2005 and good
buddy Andy Pettitte was second (2.39). Roy
Oswalt was seventh in the NL (2.94), but
emerged as the ace of the staff in the post-
season and was selected MVP of the NLOCS
Brad Lidge is still the stopper out of the
bullpen, despite losing two games in the
World Series. If the'hitting improves and the
pitching comes close to last year, the Astros
could be headed to the postseason again.

He's Outta Here: 1B.Sean Casey, RHP
Ramon Ortiz, RHP Ben Weber, INF D'Angelo
Jimenez.
Outlook: New owner Bob Castellini took
.control in January, leaving him little time to
make much of an impact on this season. He
replaced GM, Dan O'Brien with Wayne
Krivsky, who was runner-up for the job two
years ago. Manager Jerry Narron took over
on an interim basis last season when Dave
Miley was fired, then got a contract exten-
sion. The payroll will be about the same, and
so will the lineup. Casey was traded to
Pittsburgh, taking care of the outfield logjam.
Adam Dunn moves from LFto 1B, and Austin
Keams and Wily Mo Pena get starting jobs
next to CF Ken Griffey Jr. Williams, obtained
for Casey, will take Ortiz's spot in what was
the NL's worst rotation last season. RHP Paul
Wilson is still recovering from shoulder sur-
gery in June and will be a focus in spring
training. Womack is trying to win the 2B job
over returners Rich Aurilia and Ryan Freel.
Pittsburgh Pirates
Manager: Jim Tracy (first season).
2005: 67-95, sixth place.
Training Town: Bradenton; Fla. ..

Mackowiak, 1B Daryle Ward, OF Tike
Redman, 3B Ty Wigginton, OF Michael
Restovich, INF Bobby Hill, RHP Brian
Meadows, RHP Rick White.'
Outlook: After averaging 92 losses in for-


mer manager Lloyd McClendon's nearly five
seasons on the job, the Pirates have a new
look starting with Jim Tracy the first man-'
ager hired from outside the organization
since Jim Leyland in 1986. The new addi-
tions Casey, Bumitz and Ranrda should
add power to what was orie of the majors'
worst offenses. The Pirates expect Casey's
extra-base numbers (9 homers, 32 doubles)
to improve in PNC Park and its easily reach-
able right field porch. The right side of the
bullpen is being rebuilt around the 41-year-
old Hernandez. Whether the Pirates show
significant improvement depends on LHP
Oliver Perez's ability to bounce back from an
injury filled season in which he never found
the groove he had in 2004, and whether LHP
Zach Duke and LHP Paul Maholm can build
upon short but exceptional rookie seasons.
The Pirates must think Duke is a star in the
making: They have not one, but two Duke
bobblehead doll giveaways scheduled.

Outlook: The Padres, promised changes
after limping to the NL West title and then get-
ting swept by St. Louis in the playoffs.'*GM
Kevin Towers had p busy offseason, budthe
questior is whether his many deals will keep
the Padres not only in contention but inter-
esting. One reason the Padres siruggled'last
year was ineir vanilla oilense and a lineup
loaded with utility players. Piazza givesithe
Padres a marquee player whom the Padres
their still has some pop in his bat He had 19
homers last year for the New York Mets! By
comparison, Ryan Klesko led the Padres
with 18. After ace Jake Peavy, there's not a
lot in the rotation to e 6-foot-10'Young is an interesting acquisition
Shawn Estes is the only.lefty among the
starting pitchers. The big battle, in spring
training: will be, at second base, wtlere
Bellhom. Bobby Hill and rooKie Josh Barfield
son of Jesse Barfield will compete to replace
Loretta Klesko will move back to first base
and Dave Roberts will move from center field
to iefi allhioujgh rumors persist he could be
dealt back to Boston for David Wells.

Outlook None of the Giants offseason

healthy in '06 Bonds was limited Lo' 14
games last season because of. knee pob-
lems, but shoved aigns of his old sell in
September by' hitting five homers in 42 al-
bats He needs seven more to pass B'abe
Ruth for the most ever for a lefty and 48 to
break Hank Aaron's career mark of 755.
Considering that Bonds has only hit.jthat
many homers twice in his career it appears
unlikely he It set Ihe record in mie final season
of his coni3act inlunes could be a problem
again for an old earn that will have three out-
fielders in their 40s come July Bornds
Finley and Moises Alou RHP Matt Cain (2-1.
2.33 ERAin 7 starts provides some youth to
the rotation, but the key will be a bounce-
back seasor by ace Jason Schmidt |12-7

Phillips, C Mike Rose, RHP Duaner
Sanchez, RHP Steve Schnroll, INF- Jose
Valentin,, RHP Jeff Weaver.
Outlook: Coming off their second-worst
season since moving west from Brooklyn in
1958, the Dodgers will have an entirely new
look this year. Ned Colletti was hired to
replace Paul DePodesta as general manag-
er 2Y months ago, and after hiring Grady
Little to replace Jim Tracy as manager, he
made wholesale changes and might not be
finished. Colletti made over the infield, bring-
ing in free agents Garciaparra, Furcal and
Mueller to join slugger Jeff Kent. Lofton,
another free agent, will play center field.
Furcal and Kent had' minor operations last
month but are expected to be at or near 100
percent by the beginning of next month.
Tomko and Seo were brought in to complete
a starting rotation that also includes
holdovers Derek Lowe, Brad Penny and
Odalis Perez, and the bullpen was beefed up
with the acquisition of Baez and Carter from
Tampa Bay. The Dodgers hope closer Eric
Gagne and right fielder J.D. Drew will be
back at full health after their 2005 seasons
were shortened by injuries. This is a team
that figures to have improved enough to con-
tend in a weak division.
Colorado Rockies
Manager: Clint Hurdle (fifth season).
2005: 67-95, fifth place.
Training Town: Tucson, Ariz.
Park: Hi Corbett Field.
Reporting Dates: Feb. 17/Feb. 22.
. .He's Here: RHP Jose Mesa, LHP Ray


King, C Yorvit Torrealba, OF Eli Marrero.
He's Outta Here: OF Larry Bigbie, C Todd
Greene, 2B Aaron Miles, RHP Jamey Wright,
RHP Dan Miceli. .
Outlook: The Rockies gave Hurdle and GM
Dan O'Dowd each one-year contact'exten-
sions, figuring they should have a little more
time to try to make something of the mess in
Colorado. Is it going to get any better? Well,
once again, the Rockies refused to spend in
the offseason, counting on Todd Helfon, their
only star, to keep producing, and on Garrett
Atkins, Matt Holliday, Cory Sullivan and Clint
Barmes-all of them still prospects, really--
to keep improving and make this team
respectable. The only problem is, not all the
players Colorado chooses to develop are
good picks: 2B Aaron Miles and C J.D.
Closser were each handed starting jobs last
year and failed. There are a couple of decent
pitching prospects, but that never wins the
day at Coors Field. Attendance is way down
and fans aren't showing any signs of show-
ing up again until this product gets better.

office dilemma


public employees in
Inverness want more
room to conduct their'
business. -
That might come as a surprise
to taxpayers, because the county
just recently opened a 40,000-
square-foot expansion of the
new courthouse. But court offi-
cials say there just isn't enough
room in the new facility to get
the job done.
From a taxpayer's standpoint,
there is plenty of room in
Inverness to move around and
find office space without adopt-
ing the nuclear option aban-
doning the county seat and mov-
ing the courts to the county jail
in Lecanto.


Courthouse is critical to the eco-
nomic future of the downtown
area.
That future shouldn't be wast-

larger office.
There does exist office space
in Inverness that could tem-

crunch being felt at the court-;
house. The new Inverness City

Quality of life


I am wondering why the RV park is
front-page news? Are we being sold
on this idea so when the "good ole
boys" vote it in we are not real u pset?
I understand the desire of any
property owner to get the maximum
dollar value from their property. But
at whose expense should that hap-
pen?
The Comprehensive Plan is to
assure that only proper uses of land
are allowed. But it seems that all it
takes is to know someone or have
money and the plan is altered to meet
the needs of the builder or developer.
There is nothing good to come from
a 499-unit RV park to balance'the
changes required to permit its con-
struction. The construction of high-
dollar homes on large pristine lots
would be a much better overall devel-
opment, and cause less impact to
Spivey Lake. The water usage for a
golf course and damage from fertiliz-
ers would be far higher with the RV
park than with homes. But we come
to the other side that always seems to
drive the train.
It would not make as much money
for the property owner. It would not
make as much money for the county
in taxes; it would not hire any full-
time employees. And the limited resi-
dents would spend far less mohey in
Citrus County than transient visitors.
We must consider whether we are
all about money or quality of life in
Citrus County. The commissioners of
30 years ago made decisions based,
upon money and growth. Now we are
dealing with three sick rivers and sick
and dead lakes. The great natural
resources are gone.

Day in park
We spent a delightful afternoon at
the Homosassa State Park a few days
ago with visiting family. Haven't been
there in a few years and were amazed


at the progress that has been accom`
polished. The wooden walkways, back
drop paintings (even the reptile .,
house), everything well identified, all
so neat and clean, were impressive.,

It's amazing how Terry Witt has
written two major articles recently, '
comparing gas prices in Inglis to
those in Citrus County.
The gas prices in Inglis have always,
been higher through the years; it's
only a wide spot in the road. If he
would drive south on U.S. 19 to
Hernando or Pasco counties, he
Would find prices 10 cents to 12 cents
a gallon cheaper than those in Citrus
County.
It appears the articles are a way to
justify our commissioners' 6 cents per
gallon increase. They chose this route
and delayed increasing the impact
fees to appease their friends, the
builders, i.e. stick it to the existing "
residents rather than the newcomers
or the builders.
When election time comes, it woujd
be prudent to vote against the incum-
bents and get new commissioners
who are responsive to the county's
existing residents.

Broken morality


Re: Leonard Pitts' colu nrn. Why
"Brokeback' is so frightening.
So Leonard Pitts, the Miami Herald
columnist, thinks there's nothing
wrong with two males exercising their
love for each other with words and
actions in the movie "Brokeback
Mountain." Not that there's anything.
wTong with being gay
Audiences should know if they plan
to see this moxie, which has an "R"
rating for content, that they will see
explicit love scenes between two
Sales. They are portrayed as cow-
boys, but Clint Eastwood and John
Wayne they are not.
Why does the Hollywood crowd
Think heterosexuals would be inter-
ested in this behavior? Pitts enjoyed
the movie. To each' his own.
The far-left Hollywood pinheads
have gone too far imposing their left-
wing, liberal lifestyle on unsuspecting
audiences. They are responsible for b
the breakdown.of morality in this
country. I thank God I have lived most
of my life in better times. The future
of A.merica looks very bleak. ,
"Brokeback Mountain" has been
selected by the Hollywood "weirdoes"
as the best picture of the year'Does
that surprise you? It's another scheme
to lure an unsuspecting audience into'
theaters.
I was not and am not a fan of Bill
Clinton but his "don't ask, don't tell"
policy for the military is con'rrect.
Some terrible things happened in
World War II when it was revealed a'
soldier was gay. That was extreme and
should never again be tolerated.
Why does the gay community and
-their supporters feel.we have to
accept their lifestyle? Most gays are.
discreet and they are to be commend-
ed. However you have that small
minority with the help of the
Hollywood weirdoes who constantly.
attempt to force their l i festyle on us
and it's getting annoying.
If this movie is shown locally, I urge
everyone to boycott it I want it to be a
-box office disaster in Citrus Cou nty,
sending a message to other communi-
ties in Florida. .

Film seems true
In regard to Harley Lawrence's let-
-'ter "Winter Soldier" and Maii lyr
-Day's reply.
Since I saw the film "Winter Sol-
dier" in December, I found this ex-,
change of letters revealing. And since
I have on several occasions stood with
others in the peace vigils on Thursday
evenings, I would like to comment on
Lawrence's critique of them as well.
The film itself is a rather crudely
done series of interviews filined in
black and white. What adds to its
credibility is the series of colored
newsreels interspersed showing the
events being discussed in painfully
'graphic detail. These were apparently
filmed by news agencies outside the
control of the makers of the film. Even
.if these men who were testifying, as '
Lawrence claims, "weren't anywhere
near Vietnam or combat," the events
on the newsreels obviously happened.
Cruelty was shown toward Vietnam-
ese people by men wearing American
uniforms and traveling in vehicles

tend to, think the testimony is largely
true. '
I would like to see documentation
of Lawrence's assertion that the film
:,was "devised by the KGB." The KGB.
,is an agency akin to our CIA, which
we know has dabbled in come similar
covert operations. What we find unsa-
vory about the KGB is its use of
known and hidden detention camps'

to Fort Benning drew near,
I wanted to make it official.
Being a romantic, I chose to
follow the path seen so

I followed the script I had

IFE bridal set that included an
engagement ring with a
small diamond. I had to leave on St,
Valentine's Day, so the .evening before;,
I presented the ring and asked 17-
year-old, Sherry (Cheryl) to be my
wife.
She said, "Yes."
To add eniphasis, I arranged for a

Sunday Christians
I consider myself spiritual., and
although I adhere to the teachings of
Christ, I don't refer to myself as a
Christian any longer, because self-pro-
claimed Christians are really not
Christians at all, in my book.
Fortyyears ago, I used to walk two
miles to a Presbyterian'Church, I.
loved the pastor's sermons and the
hymns: I felt very uplifted as I walked
home.
IHowever, as time went by, I stopped'
going because I became disenchanted
by what I termed "Sunday Christians"
those who thought they were so
good because they attended church
on Sunday but the rest of the week it:
was back to business as usual. "Hate
your next-door neighbor, but don't for-
get to say grace ("Eve of Destruction"
by Barry McGuire. 1965).
Sunday Christians are real good at
talking the talk. but they don'twalk
thle walk. .
To all you Sunday Christians out
there, I ask: How can you cheer on an
illegal invasion by the. United States
on a poor, small country that never'
did us, nor.intended to do us, any,
harm? The reason is greed and thiev-
ery of the oil upon which their land
sits. Those are hardly Christian val-
ues, but many "Christians" cheer on
this disgrace and gladly swallow all
the distortions and lies for this war.
Good people don't start wars, and they
certainly don't start wars for bad rea-
sons.
In Jesus' Sermon on the Mount,
where among other blessings.
bestowed, Jesus says: "Blessed are the
peacemakers, for they are the chil-
dren of God" (Matthew 5:09). There is
not one single blessing for greedy,
warmongers or for those who use
and/or condone the slaughter and tor-
ture of innocents!
When you sent your Christmas
cards with the phrase "peace on
earth," did you mean it?
If not, you're only a Sunday Christ-

Politicized process
If entrapment is the name.of the
game in the selection of Judge
Samuel Alito as a Supreme Court
Judge, then the processes followed by
Democratic senators is extremely
flawed, even as a criminal investiga-
tion is illegal if entrapment actions
are used.
It always seems strange to me when
a congressional action is voted on,
often the Republican members vote
one way and the Democrats vote just
the opposite. The only interpretation I
can make is that such decision-mak-
ing is politicized, and consequentially
may not be in the interests of United
States citizens.
A vote of 51 Republicans and 49
Democratic senators about an issue is
a most mysterious political conclu-
sion. When election comes, although
registered as a Democrat as a proce-
dural choice (one has a choice, Dem-
ocrat, Republican or independent), in
good conscience, I must investigate
the background, the experience and
the character of candidates, and then
make a choice on the basis of that
understanding. To do otherwise .


appears to be folly.
In senatorial committee quizzing
Judge Alito.-the appearance seemed
to be that all the Democrats were for
not confirming and all the Repub-
licans were for: How can this be?
The impression generated seemed
to be that all the senators, to some
degree, are politicizing the process in
their questioning; some seeking en-
trapment, some seeking to show how
bright they are, many piling on com-
pliments, a few quite sarcastic and
others seemingly wanting to show per-
sonal and legal superiority over the
candidate.
All of the above questioning metho-
dology is helpful in defining the char-
acter. the background, the training
and, most importantly, the independ-
ence of Alito. However, if the goal is to
embarrass the presidential choice by
entrapment, or any other means, or'
the decision for confirmation is based
on political goals, then the verbaliza-
tions of the questioner is open to
question.,

Growth monster
It would seem that this growth thing
can't be stopped. We are still smarting
from the county's approval for a
developer build 50 more homes on
environmentally sensitive land next to
the Withlacoochee River. This was the
result of a compromise to avoid a Bert
Harris Act lawsuit They say it is the
only way. I doubt that. They say the
developers would have prevailed.
Well, maybe. This is environmentally
sensitive land, and we will never
know at this point I think we could
have at least slowed them down and
maybe made the developer do some-
thing for us.
The growth train is now steaming
towards a 499-spaces RV resort on Big
Lake Spivey in the eastern area of the
county. This is another environmen-
tally sensitive area, and, if approved,
would be a direct insult to our com-
prehensive plan.
'Interestingly, the county staff has
recommended approval while our
Own Planning and Review Board rec-
ommended it not be approved. The
county staff says it's good and worth
the change to the comprehensive plan
because the developer has agreed to
install a big pipe to handle all the
RVs' sewer problems and all the addi-
tional septic problems in the area.
"Balderdash," I say If the develop-
ment is disapproved then the big pipe


is not needed at all and the remaining
septic problems in and around Big
Lake Spivey could be on the new
sewer implementation master plan. I
just thought that up. Sounds good.
doesn't it?
We can control growth in environ-
mentally sensitive areas. We might
even be able to stop it in this area of
the comprehensive land-use plan.
Let's try something different and
make use of the plan. Tell the devel-
opers to go elsewhere.

Paying attention
The first paragraph of Chronicle
Publisher Gerry Mulligan's column
Jan; 29 stated: "But if we are not pay-
ing attention, all of a sudden the rules
can change."
Later in the article, Mulligan stated,
"You might wake up one day and find
out a high-density condo project has
been approved for the vacant lot next
to your house."
r I wonder where Mulligan got those
ideas. Here in Meadowcrest, right
under his nose, we have awakened to
find a high-density condo project has
been approved for the vacant lot next
to our homes.
Our county planning board and
commissioners are about to change
the definition of a three-story build-
ing. Are we paying attention while
this "rule" is being changed? Why has
the Chronicle chosen not to cover this
story?. i
The commissioners soon will vote ?
on allowing three-story buildings to be
built in Meadowcrest at the corner of
Meadowcrest Boulevard and County
Road 486. The planning board and the
commissioners, however, are referring
to the structures as two stories with
garages underneath.
This is ludicrous, because the build-
ings, by any definition, are three-story
buildings. The first story will have
garages with living space on the right
and left of them, a 1l onthe same level,
and living space behind the garages.
The second and third stories will have
living space, also. Count the stories, 1,
2 and 3.
Mulligan closes his article, "If we're
not vigilant in dealing with the details
of the planning process, our commu-
nity's landscape will forever be
altered."!'
Well, sir, when do we start?

When to go home
I have read Mr Gibbs' letter in
which he chides a Sound Off caller for
asking the most important question of
the day, "Isn't Jesus the Prince of
Peace?"
'He quotes a poem written to give
honor and respect to those who have
fought bravely and at great personal
sacrifice to preserve liberty for those
who have followed.
I thank you, Mr Gibbs! We
Democrats encourage everyone who
loves liberty to join us. In fairness to
you, I fully understand that you are
not advocating a state of perpetual
war. Nor am I. But beautiful music
and sentimental poetry do not cover
up the lies that took us into this dis-
graceful war in Iraq, and they will
never drown out the screams of those
who cry out from their, shallow graves
for justice. What they really want is
for all the foreign troops to leave. I am
sure the message they have in their
hearts is this:
"I have.little to eat My water is un-
safe to drink How much lower can I
sink? I've run out of breath and every
day brings more mutilation and death.
I just want to be left alone. Go home

Harmless fun
As a resident of Citrus County since
1969, 1 feel the need to contact you
regarding the game rooms of Citrus
County
I see no harmn in what these game
rooms provide residents. Some call it
gambling. I think not. Gambling, as far
as I remember, is where you play
machines that you have to insert
money to win money. Game rooms are
so different. You put in a card and you
win points that can be used to get gift
certificates. Gambling is bingo and lot-
tery, both of which w\e have in this
county.
The game rooms provided alcohol-
: free fun. No fights. no drnuks and, in
a few. no smoking. I read that they
were closed down to protect people
from squandering their money. I say
bull to that. ,Who elected you imy par-
ents? Who elected you to be anyone's
parents for that matter?
If you want to protect people, start
with the bars. The people get drunk
and kill people on the roads.
Stop smoking in all public build-
ings. including those bars.
If you want to protect people from
squandering their money you'd better
close the mall. too. People spend
money on shopping that they can't
afford. So sit back and smell the roses.
Nobody elected you to help people
spend their money.
The Constitution and the Bill of
Rights are still in force. And the 16th
American jurisprudence states that
any law or statute written that is not,
.in agreement with the Constitution is
null and void and has no enforcement
value.
Therefore. my right to life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness is
between me and my creator: not me
and my elected officials.
Remember who voted you in and
who can vote you out..

Game rooms missed,
This letter is to protest the closing
of the game rooms in Florida;
The idea.ofbeing able to get gift
cards as your prize is not a bad thing,
as most people use these cards at
supermarkets and restaurants in our
area. This is good for the economy
and the money is staying in our com-
munity.
To hear the concern about people
squandering the money in these
places infuriates me. We are adults
and it is our money to spend on enter-
tainment as we choose. If we can no
longer make these choices, then you
need to consider stopping bingo (they
have the same video slot machines in
operation), horse racing, dog races
and probably even lottery.
I enjoy playing here in Inverness
where I can spend a few hours in the
company of others, spending a very
small amount I've gone to Tampa and
the amount of playtime was nil. I .
could play at Lady Jo's game room for
six months for the same amount~of
money spent in Tampa in six minutes.
I now have to again leave the state,
taking the money I'll use for entertain-
ment to another state, because, I am
going to play It's just where money is
being spent, to what state benefits. I'd
much rather keepihe money right
here in our own community, and have
the enjoyment of the association and
benefit our local area.
We need information from the State
Attorney's office about the decision to
close these game rooms to 'find out
what it takes to reopen them. The
public should have a say-so. We have
tried contacting the State's Attorney
and have been unable to reach any-
one.
There also is the issue of redemp-
tion of outstanding credits due us. The
game room owners say that the State
Attorney's office is not responding to
any requests by them.

Fountain fate
I'm writing this Sound Off
regarding the fountains in

doing a fantastic job of putting
new fountains in and landscap-

thing that concerns me is,
what happened to the old foun-
tains that were put in (more
than) two years ago that I was
told they cost (more than)
$30,000? These fountains that
are in there now are not the
same fountains that were put
in there. This was MSBU

fountains go and what hap-

but.if there is a law, why isn't it
enforced? No dogs should be
allowed in any place of busi-
ness or restaurant or grocery
store or hardware, in grocery
baskets or whatever. That's not
a place for dogs to be, or cats..
That's a place of business and
dogs are not people. Keep .
them out of the stores.,
Keep it secret
I disagree with ... a recent
letter to the Chronicle about
traffic congestion coming from
the north of (U.S.) 41 heading
through Inverness to Brooks-
ville and Tampa. He'said let's
direct traffic on Independence
and then left on.(State Road) :
44 and then right on County
Road 581, which is the
Applebee's corner, and that '
C.R. 581 is a beautiful road to
travel on to BrOoksville. True,
it's a beautiful road. But part,
of the beauty is that there's
not that much traffic on it. If
you get a lot more cars bypass-
ing town and going on it; it.
won't be as fun to drive on and
you won't be able to concen-
trate on looking at the scenery
as much.
Terrible travesty
I think it's a travesty of jus- ,
tice to let that woman who was
drunk driving go free after she
killed the guy in a truck in
Beverly Hills. She drove (more
than) 40 miles from Sumter
Correctional to here, after she
worked and after she had been
partying. It is inexcusable to go
in and condemn the victim and
not the killer. I am ashamed of
the jury that was involved here,

Drunk drivers go to jail, period.
No excuses.
Records of youths
In.regards to elderly driving:
I am a senior citizen and I do
drive. Have you ever checked
the sheriff's records in the
Chronicle? Most of these peo-
ple are (younger than) 50 and
they're all driving DUI or on
drugs and have burglarized or
beaten people. I'm sure, in
their angry state, they are not
driving in a sane way.
Oil drilling
Let's not forget that the
Democratic senators in
Congress, led by Bill Nelson,
vetoed the idea of anymore
drilling for oil either in Alaska
or offshore. We can thank them
when it hits $100 a barrel.


Thumbs up
Thumbs up to Corfimissioner
Gary Bartell, who wants to ban
certain fertilizers that find their
way into our aquifer. These fer-
tilizers that are high in nitrates
and phosphates are not only
bad for the environment, but
because they can also be air-
borne, they can cause, swim-
ming pools to develop serious
algae blooms in the water. We
are fortunate to have a com-
missioner who stands up for
issues that may not be popular *
but helps our environment for
us and our future generations. *
We moved here for the very
thing that Commissioner ,
Bartell is trying to protect.

we stand;
Bone to pick
I'm calling in regards to
"Personal skeletons," in
Sunday, Jan. 22's. paper,, about
Ted Kennedy. Ted Kennedy and.
the Kennedys have done more
for this country than any
Republican ever has. Granted,.
everyone has a skeleton or two
in their closet and I'm sure the
Republicans have quite a few of
their own. The Kennedys,
though, have always been for.
the people, poor, minority and
otherwise. You cannot say that
for the Republican Party. So.
people ought to check into
these things before they make
statements such as, "He is
pickled." That is the most ludi-
crous thing I'have ever heard.
Great presidents
It is truly amazing how many
people are habitually on the
wrong side of history. It seems
President Abraham Lincoln.
was perhaps the most reviled
in his day, yet one of the most
revered in history. In recent.,
times it was President Ronald
Reagan, (who) brought down
the Soviet Union.:He was vili-
fied oy the lert, yet today he's '
considered one of the greatest
presidents. Now we have
President George Bush. There
is. no doubt that he is going to.
be considered one of the great
presidents in the future. Maybe
it's.this thought that. elicits
such hatred in the modern-day.
leftists. That hatred is so great.
that they would rather see the
nation ,fail than to'see ..
President George Bush suc-
ceed.
Young neighbors
I'm calling in response to
Sunday's (Jan. 22) Sound Off
about the noisy, small children,
at the Oak Village Association
meeting. We must not have
been at the same meeting
because I was one of the par-
ents that showed up with my
children. The children were
very well behaved. We sat in
the back; nobody else was real-
ly around us. There was even a
gentleman next to us who was
partially deaf i'n one ear, and-
he could still hear the meeting.
Fifteen minutes into the meet-
ing, we took the children out-
side'to play whilethe rest of
the parents sat in the meeting.
So I really think if you couldn't
hear what was happening, then
you were too busy.not.focusing
on the speakers and wondering
why all the kids and the fami-
lies had to show up. Sugarmill :
Woods is not just for the older
generation anymore. We were
there to.show that younger
families are. moving in and we
would like some things to hap-
pen for us, too, not just the
senior community.
Good for some
The economy is good. Ford
workers are losing (more than)
30,000 jobs. Executives are
making 475 times the salary of
the workers. The economy is so
good for those who are the
richest.
Vietnam view
Once again (someone) writes
in quoting a movie ("Winter
Soldier") about how the Viet-
nam veterans mistreated every-
body in Vietnam. After serving


three years in Vietnam and see-
ing none of the B.S. that this
(person) wrote in about, isn't it
saa that they can't even get
facts straight and they have to
watch,a movie? By the way, who
was in charge of our country
when all this.supposedly educa-
tion of our troops could be so
cruel? Well, the Democratic
Party was ...

complaining about that ... How
do they figure that' out?...
Excellent advice
I want to congratulate F
Douglas Stephenson for his ,
excellent article in,this morn-
ng's paper (Tuesday, Jan.
24),on "Emotional issues when
facing aging." Several.of his
previous articles were so good
cut them out to save them.
They were on relationships, on
marriages. This article is just
excellent and just please con-
tinue running his articles.'They
are really worthwhile.
Harsh lessons
It's a very sad way to learn a.
harsh lesson. But when juve
niles reach the age of being
physically able to inflict a lot of
harm and have a negative his-
tory for rules of society,. have
defied every figure of authority
they've ever come up against
- and I mean against because
they defy everything they're
going to receive harsh treat
meant. I'm so sorry for that
family that is learning this at
this point, but children grow
into what they are allowed to
be. '. .
Follow rules
I live in Oakwood Village,a
deed-restricted community in
Beverly Hills. This could, how-
ever, be said for all deed-
restricted communities:
Welcome to the neighborhood.
But if you do not intend to fol-
low the documented deed
restrictions, please, please do
not move here.
Drug program
Addressing the new drug
program. I've been reading all
the problems getting prescrip
tions refilled, which, however, is
true. Other problems with this
program that I do not see
addressed are: 1. Companies
that previously had a retiree
drug program are now drop.
ping coverage because of this
program. 2..Drug companies
that offer discount drugs are
also dropping some of their
programs. 3. They say it is vol-
untary, however, you are penal.
ized 1 percent per month for
each month you do not sign up
-not voluntary, to me. I know
these, are all true because all of
these items have happened to
my family. ,
Reversing on U.S. 19
I agree' with the man who
called in regarding those 70
and older take a driving test.
Every day I see elderly people
along (U.S.) 19 cutting, turning
suddenly with no turn signal,
slamming on the brakes and
even driving sometimes 10 to
15 mph under the speed limit.
This is.dangerous. It's a good
way to get rear-ended by those
just going the speed limit and
moving with the flow of. traffic.
I'rmi not saying all elderly peo-
ple drive like this, but I see sev-
eral incidents on a daily basis.
Just last week my husband and
I saw an elderly couple in the
middle of the day, going in-
reverse down (U.S.) 19-near
(County Road) 488, just be-
cause they missed the road.
That's what the turnarounds in
the median are for.'Traffic in
that section of (U.S.) .19 goes
fast and they could have been
killed. I. think the driving tests
should be given for their own
safety and others. As for the
man who called in to say young
people are swerving in and out
of traffic maybe they're
doing that to avoid people driv-
ing so slow suddenly and slam-
ming on their brakes for no
reason because they aren't
from around here and are lost
in the first place.
Best of care
I'm calling in reference to
Seven Rivers (Regional Medical
Center). I was in Seven Rivers
(Regional Medical Center) this
last week and I.had the best
care of anybody. The nurses,
the doctors and everyone on
staff treated me so.well .and I
appreciate it so much.: Thank
you, thank you, thank you very
much ..

An explanation of my


long-range plan for county
DIXIE H10L1INS


DIXIE. HOLLINS
Special to the Chronicle

Editor's note: The Hollins


family owned the sprawling
Hollinswood Ranch in the
'northwest corner of Citrus
`' County until 'much of it was,
sold in the 1990s. Dixie Hollins
still owns the farthest north-
west corner of the property,
about1,500 acres, now used for.
mining and timber operations.
He, has a long-range plan to
Develop the property after the
mining winds up in the next
-few decades, and he is present-
ing the 25- to 30-year plan to
F the county.
y family has been com-
'mitted to Citrus
County since 1942
when they bought the property
;we call the Hollinswood
Ranch. -Our ranching, timber
'and especially the mining busi-
nesses have 'provided jobs for
our family and many others
over generations. We've been
neighbors and friends for many
years. We're looking forward to
'many more.
As we look ahead, we know
that mining is coming to an end.
J(While mining is scheduled to
-,-continue for another 30 years,
that time passes quickly As the
,'caretaker of both .the property
and my family name, I need to
think about what's. next This
ranch is my family's legacy We
cannot do this piecemeal we
have tosee a big plan.
S For me, that plan. has to

value to the region, Supports
economic development and
continues the legacy of stew-
ardship passed to me by my:
father and grandfather.
I've spent a lot years thinking
about it, talking to experts and

vision for Hollinswood and

used to benefit the public, as
well as reporters and the like.
Pat Gleason, the AG's gener-
al counsel, addressed a gather-
ing of editorial writers in
-,Tallahassee earlier this month.
She explained the function of
'.j'the. Open Government
.Mediation Program, which she
oversees, as well as the general
"benefits to the citizenry of hav-
ing such laws.
For practical purposes, the
mediation program is some-
thing even non-journalists
should be particularly aware
of.
Why? Only about one-third of
''those who use-the program -are
-journalists:. Another one-third
are: government employees,
leaving you guessed it -
about one-third ordinary,
'everyday citizens. Those "citi-
zens" might come in the form
of powerful business people or.
"."simply concerned individuals.
A couple of quick scenarios:
M A handful of mom-and-pop
'" store merchants hear rumors
that paperwork to clear the
way for a Wal-Mart
Supercenter has been filed
with the local government.
Wanting to know if their liveli-
:hoodsmay soon be threatened,
'one of the merchants asks a
City Hall clerk for documents
related to rezoning requests or
'property transactions that may
:shed light on the rumor The
Government employee tells the
merchant to buzz off because
his coffee break's coming up
and he doesn't have immediate
access to that information.
,* A contractor makes a bid
'"'on a government construction
.-job but isn't awarded, the con-
-tract. Curious about which
"" competitor got the job, he asks
'to see the proposal submitted
by the company that was
awarded the contract to verify
that it was the lowest and best
Sbid. He, too, is told to buzz off.
SThese examples, loosely
based on a couple given by


The vision
In the future, Hollinswood
will have four general business
areas including mining, an
industrial/port center, a water-
front:commercial (retail) area,
and, eventually homes. With
mining farther away on the
property, we'll begin building a
public marina close to the
Barge Canal. We've waited a
long time to have a marina with
direct gulf, access for recre-
ation and commercial fishing.
I'd like to see a high and dry
storage facility, restaurants, a
resort hotel and retail shop-
ping. This is our industrial port'
center. We call .this area .the
Port District We see it as a
vibrant economic base appeal-
ing to tourists, but providing a
unique local place to access
the gulf. relieving pressure on
the Crystal and Homosassa
rivers, and supporting boating
and fishing and recreation.
Better still, we've .proposed
that ours be a "clean marina."
This is a program of the
Florida Department, of
Environmental Protection.
The program certifies marinas
that maximize the benefits or
accessing the water while pro-
tecting the environment
To ensure that we keep good
jobs, there will be an industrial
area, too. We can't yet say what
kind of industry, but we want to
ensure that our children and
their children have the oppor-
tunity to' stay and work in
Citrus County.
We're going to put this indus-
trial area on the map to make
sure that good businesses seri-
ously consider this great loca-
tion. Along U.S. 19 we expect to
have general and waterfront
commercial interests, busi-
nesses and retail stores provid-
ing services and goods for
years to come.
Finally, when the mining is
done, our plan calls for a resi-
dential area. It's many .years
away, but Hollinswood is a
beautiful place. A home at
Hollinswood will provide a
unique opportunity to appreci-
ate wildlife, water and more.
Economic development
Most of us have seen Citrus


County change. In just the last
couple of years, growth has
changed the pace of our lives
and, some say, the quality of
them. We're among the fastest
growing communities in the
South. Because of the growth,
we have more pressure on our
natural resources. We also
have less access to the water -
something that brought many
people here in the first place.
As we grow, as we focus on
economic development, we
must make sure that our quali-
ty of life is protected. For me,
it's not a choice between eco-
nomic development and the
quality of our lives; it's a choice
for both. We have the opportu-
nity to learn from the mistakes
made by other communities
and to choose a future that
gives us the best of both worlds.
As I worked with consultants
and experts to put this plan
together, I tried to create that
balance economic develop-
ment along with the things that
add quality to our lives. Guided
by the land stewardship my
family has always valued, I can
see a future with the same kind
of promise we've had in the
past.
A long way to go
Right now, we've got a plan.
We've got a vision for the
future. But the plan has a big
review process ahead. There
will be public meetings and
presentations about it. In the
meantime, we'll be meeting
with leaders and interested
people in Inglis and
Yankeetown and of course,
Citrus County. We'll be visiting
with neighbors and fishermen
and environmentalists and lots
of others.
Soon, we'll put up a Web site
with information about the
plan. 'We want everyone to
understand the plan and, of
course, we're hoping for your
support We're also asking for
your input., This is just the
beginning, but we think we're
heading in the right direction:
We hope you'll think so, too.

Despite the annual onslaught of proposed
exemptions to the sunshine laws, Florida
remains among the best of states when
it comes to keeping the business of
government open to public scrutiny.


Gleason, illustrate where the
mediation program comes in
handy. Rather than a modest-
income merchant taking City
Hall or county government or
state government to court,
they can contact Gleason at the
Attorney General's Office in
Tallahassee. Both parties must
agree to mediation and roughly
three-quarters of the time medi-
ation will solve the problem.
It's not fair to paint the gov-
ernment records custodian as
the bad guy in all cases. Certain
information is exempt and they
have to exercise caution in
releasing info. They may seek
mediation to :make sure they're
OK to release the infob
On the flip side, certain
exemptions can be over-inter-
preted to Withhold information
that won't cause any great
social trauma.
Example: A. government
employee denies a homeowner
access to blueprints about
plans for stadium lighting at a
nearby school. Blueprints were
exempted from the sunshine
law after the 9/11 terrorist.
attacks, so withholding the info
may, technically, be OK, but....
While Gleason didn't say this
in citing the example, the
homeowner may have simply
been trying to determine if she
wanted curtains or blinds for
the picture window facing the
stadium. No. threat to national
security there.
Gleason was quick to point
out that denial of public
records often results from testy
bureaucrats who jerk .people
around as .some sort of person-
al vendetta. Sometimes people
requesting information can be
unpleasant, indecisive or
funny looking, but if it's public
information, the government's


got to provide the info in a rea-
sonable amount of time.
There are few absolute time
'frames for the "reasonable
amount of time," but simple
requests should result in get-
ting the information in a mat-
ter of minutes, while a request
for 1,000 copies!of a report may
require two or three or four
days.
In most cases, there's
absolutely no obligation for the
person requesting the informa-
tion to identify themselves or
say why they want the informa-
tion. If asked to show your dri-
ver's license, ask if it's neces-
sary and why. On the other
hand, it can't hurt to put your
request in writing, in which
case providing your name may
be appropriate.
If mediation is not agreed to,
or fails, and the case goes to
court, the government pays for
both parties' legal fees if
records were illegally denied.
While Joe Taxpayer may cor-
rectly say, "My money's going to
pay for legal fees for some case
I could care a hoot about," the
responsible agency will have
some uncomfortable questions
to answer. In the case of a state
agency, it will have to answer to
the state Legislature.
What it gets down to is state
government being accountable
to the. people. The mediation
program can save major
headaches and major dollars.
It's one weapon in the
Government-in-the-Sunshine
arsenal intended to protect the
public. It's there for you.

Music's message
I'm writing in response to a Jan. 17 Sound
Off, "Madcap Music."
I took offense to this particular Sound Off,
which stated that the music teenagers listen to
is "demon music playing with funny growling
noises."
Having said this, I would like to add: Most
teenagers I know have been influenced greatly
in a positive way by rock andi metal. For exam-
ple, anybody who has heard 'music by rock
artists System of a Down will understand where
I'm coming from. This band covers issues rang-
ing from the civil rights crimes in Tiananmen
Square, the past human rights crimes in:
Armenia, the Rwandan genocide of the early
1990s and the current war in Iraq, while urg-
ing teenagers to become more involved, and to
take part in political activities such as voting.
I've learned more from my "demon music" than,
I have from my history teachers about many of
the issues I mentioned above.
A Perfect Circle is another 'rock band with a
whole lot to say. These guys sing from the
heart, but do so in a much more civil fashion.
Not all rock and metal has to include growling,
and A Perfect Circle' is a perfect example of
this.
Many of these songs do have "growling nois-
es," included to express anger and frustration
about brothers and fathers dying at war, best.
friends dying from drug and alcohol abuse and
their own mothers and grandmothers begging
for government help and falling short. If only
you took the time to listen to what they're
actually. saying, you could hear these pleas, too.
Even my grandmother (who grew u p listen-
ing to Elvis and the Beach Boys) listens to rock
with me, and she does listen!
So please, if you could just take some time
out of your day, turn on the radio and listen to
our music. You may find that it's not as bad as
you think Remember, Elvis Presley's music
was feared during his time. and that every
type of music that has influenced a generation
has at one time been considered "demon
music."

Reason for smile
Well, how do you working Republicans feel
when you' fill your tank up to drive to work?
Aren't you amazed how the oil barons you
voted for are stabbing you in the back?
It's right on the front page of most papers. I'll
refresh your memory with this Chronicle front
page article..
Here is part of it Tuesday, Jan. 31, Exxon
posted record profits. Now, listen up. If you are
a Navy vet, I'll say "Now hear this."
Exxon Mobil posted record profits of $1,071
billion for the fourth quarter and $36.13 billion
for the year.
The Bush and Cheney families are really
stuffing their pockets, while they empty yours.
You hayveone thing going for you by living
here in Florida.
How would you like to heat a home in the
north in zero weather with oil?
If you notice President Bush on TV, he al-
ways has a smile on his face. Well, this letter
tells you why.

Outsourced economy
Another issue: We're losing America! We've
lost jobs in manufacturing and technology, the
backbones of our country. We've replaced them
with service-oriented occupations in retail,
health care and government, sectors that don't
really create international value, but merely
allow us to exchange paper wealth with each
other.
Most of what we buy today comes from over-
sea's, whether it's oil from the Middle East, tel-
evision sets from China or grapes from Chile.
We pay them for the jobs we have outsourced
to them and for the manufacturing capabilities,
we've passed on to them. In return, they buy
our debt, our companies and our real estate.
Each year, we become more dependent on
them for doing our work, funding our war in:
Iraq and our tax cuts to the rich. One day, it
will catch up to us, especially if they should
stop loaning us money This situation will not
be easy to turn around.
Somewhere along the way we lost the ability
to think, be smart and creative. We've lost all
those capabilities that used to put the
American worker head and shoulders above
the rest of the world. What's worse is that we
are teaching foreign workers techniques and
innovations that were normally reserved for
our own young workers.
When do we provide the proper incentives to
get manufacturing started again in this country,
which, by the way, would create better jobs?
When do we get serious about the use of alter-
nate fuels and when do we start educating our
children? Not to be left behind is one thing, but
our children must be knowledgeable in the sci-
ences, mathematics and geopolitical subjects to
have the vision to lead the country back
Let's stop the political rhetoric created by
the Iraq war. Let us get back on track domesti-
cally. And let's leave our children and grand-
children something better than we're destined
to leave them today

Nelson's vote
Sen. Bill Nelson's decision to vote against
Judge Samuel Alito should convince a large
block of Floridians.that Katherine Harris will
be our next senator,
First, he has let the abortion issue override
common sense. Then, after listening to so many
of Democrat judicial committee members make
ridiculous speeches rather than interview the
judge, he should be ashamed of'his fellow sena-
tors. Who would want a judge on any court who
would reveal his decision on any case without


having reviewed the case thoroughly?
Anger from being unable to steal the 2000
presidential election continues to drive the
Democrat hatred toward President Bush. As a
result, our country appears to be seen unfavor-
ably through the left leaning world. A real sen-
ate leader would step up to the plate and do
every thing possible to help improve our image
on the international scene. Supporting a judge
who will work protect our constitution would
be ideal place to start.
Nelson deserves to be replaced, along with
senators Kennedy,-Durbin, Biden, Dodd, as
well as a few others.

Fertilizer ban
I believe that addressing water quality issues
in Citrus County is long overdue, but I think
the proposed ban on quick release fertilizers
does not go to the root of the problem (no pun
intended).
First of all, bans historically don't work
We've had bans on alcohol, have bans on drugs,
and have bans on certain behavior We all
know the damage the Volstead Act did to the
country, and we read about our courts dealing
with drug offenders despite the failed War on
Drugs.
So we ban a certain type of fertilizer. Who is
goingto enforce the ban? What will be the
penalty for not observing the ban? Are we
going to prosecute out-of-county purveyors who
sell their goods to Citrus County residents?
Does Gary Bartell think the sheriff doesn't
have enough to do? Does he think judges are ;
sitting a round waiting for hoW green your grass
grows stories?
To get closer to the problem, the county
should impose a special water usage fee on
residences and businesses with operational
sprinkler systems. Impact. fees for newly
installed sprinkler systems should be in-
creased by at least $5,000. A county sales tax of
at least 100 percent should be levied on sprin-
kler-system repairs and replacement parts.
Then lastly, a 100 percent sales tax should be
levied on the quick release stuff itself.
By making the pursuit of the perfect grassy
lawn a very expensive proposition, more
xeriscaped lawns would appear and the per-
ceived need for daily watering and heavy fertil-
izing will go away. This will decrease the
demand on the aquifer and reduce the man
made nitrogen input The tax money can be
dedicated to water quality projects.
There is one last point in the discussion of
water quality and environmental issues that I
would like to.make. The editors of the
Chronicle and Gary Bartell are fond of using
the trite term '"environmentally sensitive
area." Here's a news flash for you: Every
square inch of this planet is environmentally
sensitiVe.
R.G. Van Alstine
Lecanto


Of all of Bob Wardrop's twisted interpreta-
tions of my letter, I object most to his last sen-
tence: "By the way, the combat soldier does kill
his enemy, but that is not murder."
My letter was in response to a Sound Off
caller who called our troops "paid killers." I
commented that I was among the anti-war
group and we considered the troops victims,
not perpetrators.
Wardrop asks me to give an example of an
operation the military could participate in
with pride. I offer the Lost Battalion in World
War I and the soldiers whose courage hastened
the armistice. Unfortunately, they won the war
in the Argonne Forest, but the peace was lost
at Versailles.
For a comment from a combat veteran, I
quote my father, one of that brave band. He
often said they couldn't make him hate the
Germans who, like himself, were fighting in
self defense. He reserved his hatred for his
sergeant, who referred to him as "the guinea."
He complained that the Quartermaster Corps
was back in the states during World War I and
the enemy was hunger
As a little kid, I remember a medal in a box
in a closet Unlike Grenada, that splendid little
war, not many were awarded in World War I.
Like Wardrop, I don't recall dehumanizing the
enemy as part of our training in the 1940s and
the 1950s. But I remember that when I was an
enlisted woman, once a week we had TIH, or
Troop Information Hour, when an officer told
us what was going on in the world and what to
think Most of the hour was spent demonizing
any leaders whom our government didn't con-
trol.
Our troops are our pride and joy They per-
sonify the virtues to which William James
referred and Wardrop quoted. But the chicken-
hawks took their love of country, which they
put above their own futures, and used it to put
them in harm's way, a position our leaders
have avoided.

Bogus tax certificates
Most county tax collectors have been selling
fraudulent or worthless tax certificates for as
long as I can remember and no one seems to
care, especially the courts that have had an
opportunity to stop it


First of all, are they considered securities or
comparable to municipal bonds?
Surely there is a newsperson willing to make
the necessary investigation to enable the legis-
lators or someone else with proper authority to
put an end to this situation.
Anyone who has purchased a considerable
amount of these certificates has suffered the
loss of their money at one time or another.
I have as much knowledge about this as any-
one, and those interested can contact me at
(352) 796-2089 or e-mail lmlecka@webtv.net

TOURISM
Continued from Page 1C

vacation region of the state,
which includes Citrus County,
has one of the highest levels of.
vacationers who stay in the
homes of friends and relatives,
where bed tax is not collected.
In addition to Citrus
County's status as one of the
state's leading destinations in
tax revenue growth over the
last 3 1/2 years, consider the
following additional measure-
ment tools employed:
Inquiry results are cap-
tured and quantified by the
TDC staff, who track all:
requests for. information
received via. telephone,
Internet, e-mail and walk-ins.
The TDC receives
.inquiries directly from publi-
cations where advertising has
been placed. Each of these
inquiries is responded to with
brochures and other forms of
communications expressly
developed as fulfillment
pieces for those travelers seek-
ing additional vacation infor-
mation.
The county's 2005 primary
research study conducted in
leading and emerging feeder
markets revealed a relatively
high level of market aware-
ness, advertising awareness
and product satisfaction.~
Types of visitors
Corporate, leisure, and
group travel are all important
to the county's economy.
Every county and tourism
destination area in Florida:
enjoys the benefits of business
travel. For some, this level of
occupancy exceeds 25 percent
of their total base. In the cen-
tral west region, the level of
business travel is 20 percent,
while visiting friends and rela-
tives is 40 percent, and vaca-
tion getaways (including other.
forms of leisure trips) account
for another 40 percent
Consequently, business trav-
el is an extremely important
market for all of Florida
tourism, and it certainly is for
Citrus. This is why business
and group travel are important
targets in the TDC's marketing
plan. Many business ti-avelers
also become leisure travelers.
In fact, some studies indicate
that the vast majority of busi-
n, ess travelers base their
.,leisure' travel decisions on
lheir satisfaction with. place'
thfe.y have visited for business
purposes first. This would be
true for Progress. Energy

BOARD
Continued from Page 1C

Against this competition,
Citrus County is uniquely posi-
tioned as an affordable nature-
based and heritage tourism
respite and has achieved
impressive, results, even with
smaller budgets and legitimate
product limitations.
Residents, schoolchildren,
retirees, businesspersons and
even non-tourism-related busi-
nesses all benefit from tourism
in our state and county.
When tourists come to
Florida, we're all in the busi-
ness of tourism because when
guests spend money, the rev-
enues generated support our
cultural offerings, help busi-
nesses pay employees, send
kids to school, pay for text-
books and more.
When visitors spend money
here, their spending goes back
into the state in the form of tax
revenues and helps Florida
remain a non-income-tax state.
Tourists improve our quality of
life as they help to continue
making Florida a state known
for awesome cultural, nature
and heritage offerings (in addi-
tion to some of the best man-
made attractions in the world).
The Citrus County Tourist
.Development Council is the
citizens advisory board to the
Board of County
Commissioners; its members
come from the community at
large. The TDC encourages
community involvement and
all of the meetings may be
attended by any interested


member of the community.
Plus, all notices of meetings
and hearings are published in
advance in accordance with
standard Citrus County proce-
dures.
Tourism is everyone's busi-
ness. Everyone in Citrus
County benefits in some way or
another from the TDC's
'tourism marketing efforts, so
we encourage everyone to.
become more involved.
For times and information
about the board's next meeting
or any of its programs, call the
Citrus County Visitors and
Convention Bureau at
628-9305.


other.
Many Citrus County tourists
are day visitors from other
regions. In fact, the two states
that .feed more visitors to.
Florida destinations than any
other are Florida and Georgia.
The largest percentage (41 per-
cent) of these visitors to the
central west vacation region
arrive by car and stay at least
one to three days.
Many overnight visitors first.
come here on a day trip to
enjoy our abundant natural
resources. Many are traveling
to another destination, and are
merely curious to see, what
they have heard so much
about.
-In all cases, research proves,
that the majority will tell their'
family and friends about their
experience and consider visit-
ing the area again for, an"
extended period of time..
Day visitors are clearly wel-
come, and the goal is to encour-
age each to convert the day trip
to a longer stay or visit Citrus
County again. And having the
largest tourist attraction for
day visitors right at the,
doorstep of the VCB ,allows
them to better facilitate this
process. However, even if avis-
itor only stays merely one day,
the local economy benefits by:
their shopping, dining, gas pur-
chases and more, as well as the
sales tax generated from each.
High levels of day visitors
provide another testament to
the success of the TDC's mar-
keting efforts, showing benefits.
beyond even the county's suc-
cessful bed tax gains.


Economic impact
Tourism plays a large and
extremely important part in
the county's economy. .Noting
'the number of people
employed at the hotels, motels,
bed-and-breakfast establish-
ments, parks, attractions, dive
shops, restaurants, gift shops,
maiinas, fishing captains, boat
tours, etc., is a clear indicator
of how important tourism is to
Citrus County.
According to VISIT
FLORIDA and major universi-
ty studies, for every dollar
spent on bed tax, about $3 to $5
are spent by tourists on addi-
tional items.
According to a 2004 study
by D.K Shifflet and Associates,
the average expenditure per
day, excluding transportation
and lodging,' in the central west
vacation region of Florida was
$103.
Realty and builder associa-
tions also agree that new resi-
dents, to, an area frequently
learn about it first as vacation-
ers.
Economic development
experts know the same is true
for companies looking to
expand or relocate their i
offices, which is why increas-
ing tourism is a primary eco-
nomic development strategy
for many of the state's most
successful counties.

, and lakes region environments
will be doomed and Bartell is
the last person who wants to
see that happen. But if we turn
our backs now on state and
water management district
grants, those and future grants
will never come our way.
If Bartell votes with Fowler
and Damato, he stands to
become a target of abuse from
those who are against spending
tax dollars and that's large
group in a county like Citrus.
Most of all, Bartell hates. to
be the guy in the middle. He'd
like to believe that additional
state and federal.grants can be
secured. He'd like to believe
that by bidding the
Chassahowitzka project again
that lower costs are possible.
He'd like. to believe that .this
problem would go away.
But it won't
It won't go away because it's
about more than just putting a
sewer system into the neigh-
borhoods along the
Chassahowitzka River to clean
up the health hazard that has
been created by ancient and
poorly operating septic tanks.
This issue is about cleaning
up the mess we've made from.
one end of Citrus County to the
other before it gets so bad that
we can't turn things around.
The cities of Crystal River and
Inverness are the only two
places that have done an ade-
quate job of providing sewer
and water services in environ-
mentally sensitive regions. The
county is 20 years behind and
with all the growth we've seen
in recent years, the higher dep-
sity is causing the problems to
multiply.


New developments are not
the problem. They are
required to meet current stan-'
dards and provide the neces-
sary services. But there are
tens of thousands of homes
along the coast and in the lakes
region that are still contribut-
ing to the pollution. As suggest-
ed, those homeowners should
have to pay an assessment in
the range of $7,500 per lot But
the decision to clean up our
pollution problems- can't be
solely based on a specific
neighborhood's ability to pay
for the improvements.
There is a greater county.
good that 'exists. In
Chassahowitzka, once some of
the.residents realized it might
cost more than $10,000 per lot
to clean up the mess, they start-
ed backing off on how bad
things are. OK, so soine dogs.
might be born with one eye anac
people might get sick, but when
you don't have the money -
you don't have the money.
A constant funding source is
needed to keep the momentum
going on making sewer and
'water 'improvements happen.
If one region of the county is
permitted to pollute, that still
makes us all polluted.
'On Tuesday, it appears that
Gary Bartell will be the guy
.whd gets to make the final
tough decision.'
We will all be watching.

Is it 'affordable housing'?

S ,Care to guess what the going rate for
"affordable housing" is these days?
$70.000? $110,000? $125,000?
Nope Try $155.000.
That's what Brett Wattles told a
stunned Citrus County Economic
Development Council board on
Thursday morning.. .
Wattles, the EDC executive director:
said the price of what's considered
affordable housing has escalated
beyond belief.
"That's three times what I paid for my


starter home." lie said. "This is moving "We need to find jobs that enable
our way quicker than I anticipated. It's people to afford to live here," he said.

The 'Home of the Future'



may not be too far away


The phrase "Home of .the Future"
evokes Jetsons-like. surroundings, with
every homeowner's desire being fulfilled
by the simple touch of a button or voice-
commanded robots.
While most episodes of the Jetsons were
'made in the 1960s and '70s, the life depict-
ed' in the cartoon series occurred in the
21st century modern life as we know it
And although the family's Skypad
Apartments and vacations to Venus may
still be far off. the Home of the Future is
right around the comer.
"There is a move from house as place to
house:as product." said John Connell of
morrow Studio, a designibuild firm in
Warren, Vt. "With homeowners staying in
their homes, on average, five to seven
years, consumers are looking more ,for-
unique features rather than for a long-
term residence."
"Consumers are far more educated and
savvy when it comes to home design,"
added Cheryl O'Brien, president of C.
O'Brien Architects Inc. in Bala Cynwyd,
Pa. "The bar for design will continue to be
raised in the futuree, and more cohesive
architecture will find its way into themod-
ern home."'
Connell and O'Brien were two of nearly
60 architects and builders interviewed by
the National Association of Home
Builders (NAHB,) in the summer of 2005 to.
capture a view of the Home of the Future,
circa 2015. The results were presented at
the 2006 International Builders' Showt
held in Orlando in January
Here is a summary of those results:
Upward and outward
In 2005, the average size of a new single-
family home. was 2,400 square feet. In 2015,
not much changes the average size will
be 2,300 to 2,500 square feet. :
Ceiling heights will increase, as they.
have for the past 10 years. By 2015, it is'
expected that most homes will have 9-foot
ceilings on the first floor and some may
even reach 10 to 12. feet,. particularly 'in
upscale home, , ,
Doors will 'also widen. Thriee-foot, six-
inch doors will. be 'used extensively in
place of3-foot doors. .
Living large
In homes of less than 3,000 square feet,
the living room will disappear and will be
replaced by a den, parlor, retreat, library
or music room.


There is a move
from house as place to
house as product. Q 2
rd' ": .': John Connell
S2rorrow Studio, Warren, Vt.
"Entertainment will continue to be
huge," said Connell. "'Features such as)
home theatres and wide-screen televi-
sions will become more and more com-
mon."
In many average-sized homes, the living
room will combine with family and dining
areas to form a great room with an open
floor plan. Areas will be defined not by
walls but pillars, arches, ceiling treat-
ments or floor coverings.
In upscale homes (more 3.000' square
feet), the living room will remain. Glass
rear walls ora huge glass window will also
become prominent in upscale family
rooms.
Congregating and cooking'
In 2015, kitchens remain the hub of the
house and have upscale features in all.
home price ranges. A central island will
serve as working or cooking space and
walk-in pantries, double sinks, lots of
counter space and well-lighted areas will
be present.
In most new homes, wine storage racks
will generally be included with upscale
homes including built-in wine coolers.
The year 2015 will also see an increase
in commercial-style (or at least commer-
cial-looking) appliances, and most new
homes will have a butler's pantry
In addition to kitchens, utility areas are
becoming more upscale, said Al Bloom,
president of Bloom and Fiorino Architects
in Oak Brook, Ill. "We are seeing utility
rooms expanding, so homeowners can not
only use it for laundry, but for hobbies and
crafts as well," he said.
Garages grow
In most mid-price range to upscale
homes,, garages will be connected to the
house through a mud room, although tan-
dem garages will remain popular in some
areas because of smaller lot size.
Garages will be insulated and have
more storage space, with average homes,


having a two-ear garage and upscale
homes having a three-to-four car garage.
Garage door sizes will increase from 7 iby 9
feet to 8 by 10 feet, and garage sizes them-
selves will increase to 24 by 24 feet.
Separate and equal
In 2015. master bedrooms will have
areas: of specific use, such as dressing, :
sleeping and sitting areas,. andhis and
her's walk-in closets will be standard:.
Fr. master bathrooms, there will not be
two separate bathrooms, but there wilJLbe
two vanities and even his and her's dress-.,
ing areas. '
In mid-price to upscale homes, both
shower stalls and tubs will be present, and
multiple showerheads will be installed in
most upscale homes. Whirlpool tubs will
also be found in upscale master baths,.
although not frequently used. Master bed-
room, baths will include linen storage
areas.
Bringing the outdoors in
In the year 2015, expect an increase in
outdoor living. This will be evident in a
rise in outdoor kitchens in upscale houis-
ing and indoor, outdoor fireplaces.
Exterior wall material will shift to main-
tenance-free types such as stucco and syn-
thetic stone.
In other material trends, engineered
wood.use willgrow significantly and floor-
ing will move away from soft to hard sur-
faces. Bamboo flooring use will rise and
kitchen counters will continue with main-
tenance-free material trends seen in other
areas of the home to include high defini-
tion laminate.
"'Natural materials will also make their
ways indoors, as part of the cohesive inte-
rior'ex-terior trend," said O'Brien.
Trends in technology
Unlike the Jetsons' technology reliant
on elaborate robotic contraptions, holo-
grams and whimsical inventions, home
technology in 2015 is basic. In the average
home, security systems, automatic lighting
control aihd energy management systems
are the main places basic technology will
take hold., .The:use of wireless technology
may also enter the housing market in a big
way.

trends your local community can expect,

Builders Web site at www.nahb.org.

Watt do you know? Test your savvy


A little electrical

knowledge can

go a long way
On Feb. 11, 1847, the genius
inventor of the electrical age,
Thomas Edison, was.born.
Nearly 160 years later, his
most famous invention, the
light bulb,' still has an essential
place in the home. With often
no more than four hours ,of
sleep per night;and his person-
al creed of "Genius is 1 percent
inspiration and 99'percent per-,
spiration," his work with elec-
tricity is legendary.
For all the work done by,
Edison and his predecessors,
most people know only as,
much about electricity as is
absolutely 'necessary to go
about their daily lives; in other
words, not very much. But igno-
rance isn't always bliss. A little
information can prevent,
shocks and reduce power bills.
Here are a handful of
true/false questions to test your
electrical IQ:
l 1. If lights flicker or dim
repeatedly, you should call an
electrician.
TRUE. "Anytime you're get-


ting flickering or dimming
lights, there is a problem and
you should call. your electri-
cian," said Douglas Sutton Sr.,
president of Sutton Siding and
Remodeling in Springfield, Ill.
-Power outages due to power,
line accidents, strong wind.
storms or extreme heat can,
cause brief interruptions.',
Customers can call their power
company to find out details on,
the situation, or check their
circuit boxes for those outages.
But flickering or dimming
lights signifies an overload,
and 'a.professional,should be
contacted." ,
You should also call your.
electrician if you are constant-
ly.resettingcircuit breakers or:
changing fuses, smell burning
electricity or need to replace
faulty wiring.
: 2. It's cheaper to leave flu-
orescent lights on when exiting
a room than it is to turn them'
back on when you return.
FALSE. This is a commonly
held belief, based on the erro-
neous notion that fluorescent
bulbs use a lot of power to get
started. While it is true that a
compact fluorescent bulb does
require a brief surge when
switched on, it works out to be
around' the same amount of
energy-as five seconds of.nor-


mal use, -.according to the
Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA). So turning the
lights off formore than five sec-
onds will save more energy
than leaving them on.
*. 3. House wiring never
needs replacing.
FALSE. Depending on the
amount of use, insulation on
house wires can become frayed
or broken, creating a fire haz-

is 55 times more likely to reach
"'fire hazard conditions" than

4. A circuit breaker is not
designed, to protect against a
ground fault..
*,TRUE. Circuit breakers are


designed' to protect against
high levels of electrical current
caused by a short circuit.
Ground fault circuit inter-
rupters, (GFCIs) protect against
ground faults, when current
leaking from an appliance goes
to ground through a person
touching the appliance. Even a
small amount of current pass-
ing through a person this way
can be lethal; a GFCI will trip if
there's a ground fault, whereas

FALSE and
FALSE. Screen savers only
save screens, not energy. If you
want to.'save energy, turn the
monitor off. In fact, the EPA
recommends you turn the com-.
puter off, too, if you aren't going
to use it within a half-hour.
They claim the. lifetime of the
hard disc is limited by use,
rather than start-ups.'


6. You can damage a power
tool'by using the wrong size
extension. cord.
TRUE. If your electric lawn
mower, hedge trimmer or leaf
blower doesn't get enough
power, either because the
extension cord is too thin ortoo
long to deliver it, it can damage
and eventually destroy the
motor. Also. overloading an
extension cord can cause afire
or shock hazard. Be sure to use
a cord rated to' provide 'ihe
proper amperage the tool
requires, listed on the tool.
When dealing with electrical
issues in your home, safety
should be your No. 1 priority.
"We've seen homeowners
put themselves in dangerous
situations by thinking they
could do a job cheaper by

Citrus County,
Barnes will serve his fellow profes-
sionals in District 7, which encom-
passes Lake, Sumter, Hemando,
Marion and Citrus counties.

good shape," he said. "The biggest
problem is coming up with listings,
as lack of inventory has been a
major challenge."

mercial brokerage, Barnes served

County association. He is a past
president and director of the Citrus
Chamber of Corpmerce, a director
of the American Cancer Society,; a

agement experience to his role as


FAR district vice president.
"As a distribution manager for
Eckerd Drugs' Clearwater division,
I was inspired by company founder
Jack Eckerd," he said. "He had a
unique talent of making things hap-
pen and getting along with people.
I have tried to follow his example of
leadership."
As a FAR vice president, Barnes
will focus on Realtor education,
training and involvement in vital
housing-related issues in the'
region.
Business leaders
get look at hospital
You could see this sort of thing
on TV, but wouldn't you like to get
a real-life, insider's look at how
your community hospital works?
Five members of the first-ever
Citrus Memorial Health College
Intern Program did just that recent-
ly.
Citrus Memorial Health System`n
developed the program to provide
local business leaders an opportu-
nity .to get a day-long 'behind-the-
scenes" view of Citrus County's
largest health care provider.
Bob Collins, Gene Davis,. Susan
Gill, Rocky, -lesley and Gerry
Jones were the first program par--
.ticipants. They started in the sur-
r gery department and rotated
through emergency, the heart cen-
ter, diagnostic imaging, OB; labora-
tory services, home health and'
other areas


The Citrus Memorial Health
College Intern Program will occur
six times a year. Interested busi-
ness leaders can contact
Development Director Chris Pool at

ticipate in the selection process of
interested candidates for future
sessions.

How much is that
diamond in the window?
The name of the game of any .
retail business is sales.
Bringing a watch lin for repair
or having an engagement ring
adjusted or cleaned gets cus-
tomers in the door; the chal-
lenge is to get them to buy.
"People who come into a
jewelry store have an idea of
what they want, although it's
often vague," Taylor said.
"There's an image they're try-
ing to create."'
Green said that with the
increase of population in
Citrus County, the customer
base is always changing. Also,
the industry itself is continual-
ly introducing new ideas
beyond wedding rings and
pendant necklaces.
About a decade ago, the dia-
mond industry introduced
anniversary rings. ("Tell her
you'd 'marry her all over
again.") Taylor said "right
hand" rings came out about six
years ago.
"The left hand is about rela-
tionship," she said, "but the
right hand is about self-expres-
sion. Women today have given
themselves permission to pur-
chase for themselves you.
don't have to wait for a man to
buy you a diamond anymore."
She said she gets women in
their 70s and 80s coming in to


retirees" ,
The bottom line of the jewel-
ry industry, Taylor said, is
helping people create memo-


, ies. . shesaid. 'Buteveu before that, .piece. that special occasion
'A piece of fine jewelry .when you buy something spe- will come to mind and' that
