County Commissioner John Thrumston
secured a promise from one state agency
Thursday to investigate
whether removing muck
from the bone-dry Duval
Island Boat ramp in Floral
City might be worthwhile,
but it was all he managed to
accomplish that day.
Thrumston had spent the
morning discussing the

county Chain of Lakes with a dozen
commissioner, state agency officials before
giving them a helicopter

where water once flowed.

complexity
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Gov. Charlie Crist
insisted throughout Florida's 2007 legisla-
tive session that local property taxes must
"drop like a rock."
When the 60-day session ended Friday
without a tax cut, Senate President Ken
Pruitt handed Crist a gray rock about the
size and shape, appropriately enough, of a
goose egg inscribed with the word
'"patience."
Crist and Florida taxpayers will have to
wait for lower and possibly fairer -
property taxes until a special session June

Toughness, then tears

Sen. Nancy Argenziano, R-Crystal River, left, is hugged Wednesday by Sen. Paula Dockery, R-Lakeland, on her last day in the Senate in Tallahassee.

Even a bulldog cries some-
times.
Nancy Argenziano spent
her last day as a senator rush-
ing to file amendments to a
bill and working deals across
the Senate floor. But with
every few steps, a colleague
would stop her for a hand-
shake and a hug, a friend
would wish her well and tears
streamed down Argenziano's
cheeks.
Midway through the morn-
ing, a fellow senator put a box
of tissues on Argenziano's
desk
Next came a bouquet of

ers brought even more tears.
"I can be so tough, but at
times I'm just ... blah,"
Argenziano said, laughing
and grabbing another tissue.
Best-known for her tenacity
and straightforward attitude
in politics, Argenziano is a
legislator who has gained


statewide recognition for her
unwillingness to back down
from conflict and feisty antics
in Tallahassee.
After an 11-year legislative
career, Argenziano resigned

news in 11-year career
MIKE WRIGHT

Chronicle
During her 11-year legislative career,
Nancy Argenziano's blunt demeanor often
made headlines. Some snapshots:
N In August 1999, Argenziano's aide and
friend Frank Peterson wrote a disparaging
letter to Black Diamond resident Monroe "Al"
Coogler, a member of the Southwest Florida
Water Management District's governing
board. Peterson was angry that Coogler
inquired about an issue that Peterson previ-
ously had with the water district.
In his letter to Coogler, Peterson referred to
what he called the public perception of staff
at the water district as a "legion of incompe-
tent district bozos" and the governing board
members as mushrooms in the dark being fed
fertilizer.
"It has given me even a greater appreciation

Special to the Chronicle


The Citrus County Health
Department would like resi-
dents to know that more than
70 confirmed and probable
cases of Shigella, which causes
severe diarrhea, have been
confirmed in the community;
many cases are at multiple day-
care centers in the county.
The department is conduct-
ing disease investigations to
identify additional cases to
contain the spread of disease.
Teresa Goodman, health
department assistant adminis-
trator, said the community


needs to be particularly vigi-
lant when it comes to hand-
washing, before eating, after
using the bathroom, changing
children's diapers and before
food preparation.
"It's very important for par-
ents to keep their children at
home if they are experiencing
diarrhea to prevent the spread
of this disease," Goodman said.
During this countywide out-
break, any child with diarrhea
who attends a daycare should
be presumed to have Shigella.
Parents who have children
with diarrhea who attend day-
care centers are being asked to


contact their private physician
for diagnosis and treatment
before their child returns to
their daycare center.
Most Shigella infections are
the result of the bacterium
passing from stools or soiled
fingers of one person to the
mouth of another person. This
happens when basic hygiene
and handwashing habits are
inadequate. It is particularly
likely to occur among toddlers
who are not fully toilet-trained.
Family members and play-
mates of such children are at
high risk of becoming infected.
Shigellosis, the name of the


disease that Shigella causes,
can usually be treated with
antibiotics. Appropriate treat-
ment kills the Shigella bacteria
that might be present in the
patient's stools, and shortens
the illness. The duration of
antibiotic treatment is five days.
The spread of Shigella from
an infected person to other
persons can be stopped by fre-
quent and careful handwash-
ing with soap. Frequent, super-
vised hand washing of all chil-
dren should be followed in day-
care centers and in homes with
children who are not complete-
ly toilet-trained (including chil-


dren in diapers). When possi-
ble, young children with a
Shigella infection who are still
in diapers should not be in con-
tact with uninfected children.
People who have Shigella
should not prepare food or
pour water for others until they
have been shown to no longer
be carrying the Shigella bac-
terium.

Helen Bunch: Second mother to many loved feeding people


NANCY KENNEDY
nkennedy@
chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

She was known for her sweet
potato pies.
"We always cooked together,
but I never knew her secret
about her sweet potato pies,"
said Betty Richardson, long-
time neighbor of Helen Bunch.
"I was right there handing
her the ingredients, but mine
never came out like Miss
Helen's.
"She often used too many
eggs and lots of sugar. She'd
say, A little more won't hurt.'
She was my second mama and
I miss her," she said.
Helen Bunch, Crystal River
native, mother of 11 children,
grandmother of 26 and great-
grandmother of 36, died April
15. She was 77.
As a child, she lived in the
Rock Crusher area of Crystal
River. When she began having
children, she moved to the area
known as the "backwoods,"
Balloon Street and Carleen


Terrace.
And with 11 children to
raise, she spent most of her
time feeding people.
Not surprisingly, most peo-
ple's memories of Helen
revolved around her food.
Daughter-in-law Pamela
Bunch recalled her mother-in-
law's greens and the way she
made them taste sweet.
Neighbor Moody Nelson
remembered the times he
would come home from work
tired and Helen would say,
"Come over here you know
you're hungry!"
Richardson said she could
still picture the two of them in
the kitchen, shelling black-
eyed peas.
"We weren't rich, but we
lived good," said her son
William Bunch. "She treated us
well and treated the neighbors
well."
When she was younger, Miss
Helen, as she was known,
worked for Lucille Coburn.
The Coburns owned a super-
market in town and Miss Helen
worked at their house as a


housekeeper.
Her life was cooking and
her church, Independent
Church of the Living God. The
church itself moved to differ-
ent locations, and Miss Helen
stayed faithful and moved with
it each time.
"She loved to go," Pamela
Bunch said. "Church trips, vis-
iting people. She loved to walk;
she'd walk all over town visit-
ing people. She'd walk all the
way from the backwoods to the
old Winn Dixie, where Fred's is
now on 19."
When she wasn't visiting, her
door was always open.
After her children were
grown, Miss Helen moved to
Eighth Avenue, across from
Betty Richardson's house. The
two would sit together in the
mornings and sometimes go
out walking and visiting.
"You didn't have to have an
invitation to see Miss Helen,"
Richardson said. "She was
independent. She liked to do
things herself, and she would
do anything for everybody She
never forgot to say thank you to


people. And she
loved using carpet
cleaner!" STSCri
For the most part,
Helen Bunch led a
quiet life, but many "She was my aunt, but we
considered her a substitute were like sisters," said Ida

Senator made mark, moves to new challenge


MIKE WRIGHT
mwright@
chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

Helen Spivey noticed matu-
rity. Peter Monteleone said she
loved to serve. Mike Fasano
winced at some behavior.
If nothing else, Nancy Argen-
ziano distinguished herself
during 11 years in the state
House of Representatives and
state Senate.
Argenziano, R-Dunnellon, is
not a legislator today. She
resigned after Gov. Charlie
Crist appointed her to the
Public Service Commission, a
post many agree Argenziano is
well suited for considering her
penchant for backing con-
sumers in legislation regard-


less of who was on the other
side.
"She's one of the hardest-
working people I've ever met,"
Sen. Fasano, R-New Port
Richey, said. "She'll do an
excellent job on the PSC. She
will put the consumer first.
She's there as a judge to weigh
the evidence. She's not going to
be leaning toward the special
interest. She never did that in
the Legislature."
Fasano served with Argen-
ziano both in the House and
Senate. His Senate district
includes Citrus County west of
U.S. 19.
Although Fasano said he
considers Argenziano a friend,
he wishes she hadn't been so
combative with Republicans.
"Sometimes Nancy would


react instead of acting," he said.
"I do the same thing, but I try to
do my best in stopping myself in
reacting. At times, I was disap-
pointed in comments toward
our governor, Jeb Bush."
Spivey, a former state legisla-
tor who was twice defeated by
Argenziano, said she thought
Argenziano had matured
through the years.
"I think she's grown up a
good deal," said Spivey, who
continues to press for legisla-
tion to protect the environ-
ment. "When she first went up
there, it was tough to lobby her.
She did some, well for a
Republican, some really silly
things."
Monteleone, who became
one of Argenziano's strongest
backers as a community


activist in Citrus Springs, said
she always did what she
thought was right in the face of
criticism and sanctions.
"She's her own person," he
said. "She has a high degree of
integrity and that's why she
takes on those tough issues."
Monteleone said Argenziano
could argue a cause.
"If she's going to talk about
something, she does her
homework. She does her
research," he said. "I've
watched her take on people in
the audience. They come roar-
ing in at her like a lion and she
has them backing off like a
lamb."
Spivey said Argenziano and
the Public Service Commission
are a perfect fit
"I think it was made for her.


She's very knowledgeable on
the subject," Spivey said.
"She'll do the people of this


state very well. She's very con-
sumer oriented. She knows
what the game is all about"

'that with the failure of reason
and law, violence as a means
to effect justice is not only
invited, it is justified.
"And while I may not have
the temerity to pursue that
course, no one will applaud
more wildly when, inevitably,
some equally f-- over bas-
tard does."
. Coogler complained to
Speaker of the House Tom
Feeney, who fired Peterson.
Argenziano had threatened to
resign if her aide was fired,
but she stayed in office.
- 0 Later that year, Gov. Jeb
Bush asked lawmakers about
their problems with state
agencies.
- Argenziano responded: "The
detonation of small nuclear
devices over the administra-
tive shrines of South Florida
Water Management District,
St. Johns Water Management
District, and Southwest
Florida Water Management
District is an answer to those
agencies' continued corro-
sion of the doctrine of separa-
tion of powers, the blase dis-
regard of the fundamental

School in Lecanto.


concept that functionaries of
government be answerable
and accountable, and the con-
tinued development and
mutation of a self-perpetua-
tion bureaucratic aristocra-
cy"
Argenziano said she was
only joking about the nuclear


device reference.
In 2001, Feeney removed
Argenziano as chairwoman of
the Council for Healthy
Communities after she deliv-
ered a package of cow
manure to a lobbyist in the
Capitol.
"People do need to make


choices about whether they
want to be in leadership or be
mavericks," Feeney said.
Argenziano again lashed
out at Bush in 2002 after the
governor vetoed legislation to
set up a Citrus-Hernando
Waterways Council that
would provide funding and
expertise to help solve water
quality issues.
Argenziano learned of the
veto late on a Friday.
Her e-mail response to
Bush: "While I am disturbed
by the actual veto after all,
in some universe there may
have been a rational basis I
am still more disturbed by the
specious after-the-fact notifi-
cation and lack of courtesy in
discussing the matter with
me. After all, I only worked on
this matter with citizens for
two years, perhaps knew a
thing or two, and could easily
have contravened the veto
message rationale."
Coincidentally, the same
bill was passed a year later
and Bush signed it into law.
Argenziano in 2002 spon-
sored legislation to tighten
the Construction Lien Law
after two dozen Citrus County
property owners were forced
to pay twice for work done on


their homes because their
builder didn't pay his subcon-
tractors and suppliers.
Argenziano angered some
of those homeowners, howev-
er, by suggesting they should
have paid closer attention to
the builder.
"I'd like to make it so clear
there's no possible way even
the person living in Alaska all
their life would not realize
they have a personal respon-
sibility to take care of their
own finances. I can't teach
people to be more responsi-
ble."
In 2003, Argenziano was
angered by a strong push from
House Speaker Johnnie Byrd
and Bush to place award caps
on malpractice lawsuits.
"I have never seen the
House as bad as it is now.
Johnnie Byrd is a dictator.
He's the biggest lunatic this
state has ever seen,"
Argenziano said. "The House


members need to get some
guts and stop drinking the
damn Kool-Aid."
As for Bush, Argenziano
said: "He's trying to pressure
us to do what he wants. If the
governor wants to be part of
the Legislature, he needs to
run for one of our offices."
In 2005, Argenziano
chaired a government over-
sight committee that passed
legislation regarding pro-
curement contracts. The law
requires government con-
tracts to go before legislative
budget review.
Bush opposed the law
because he believes it inter-
feres with the executive
branch, Argenziano said. She
and the governor had a spirit-
ed conversation about it.
"He cursed at me that day. I
cursed at him back," she said.
"He was being the governor,
and I had to make him know I
didn't work for him."

12-22 because lawmakers were
unable to resolve the sheer
complexity of their top issue or
overcome their own philosoph-
ical differences.
"To solve that many moving
parts and do it right takes more
time," said Rep. Dean Cannon,
a Winter Park Republican who
led the House's property tax
negotiating team. "I think peo-
ple ought to be encouraged that
we're going to take our time
and get it right."

itself through for legislators to
give up their scheduled 3 per-
cent pay raise in a gesture of
good faith. At the time, state
representatives made about
$22,000 a year and, unlike her
colleagues, Argenziano worked
solely as a politician.
That's when she argued the
proposal be dropped so she
wouldn't become a "bag lady"
It's just the kind of person
she is. Argenziano speaks her
mind, no matter if her ideas
cross party lines or make peo-
ple mad.
She's infamous for once
sending a lobbyist who crossed
her a bag of manure wrapped
with a bow. And she's still does-
n't regret it.
Argenziano said she's proud
of the legislation she's passed
for water protection and nurs-
ing home regulation.
After 9-year-old Jessica
Lunsford died, Argenziano
worked with other legislators
to pass the Jessica Lunsford
Act, which calls for harsher
punishments and better track-
ing of sexual offenders.
Since the Lunsford Act, law-
makers have identified pitfalls
such as identifying a 19-year-old
boy who has sex with his 16-year-
old girlfriend the same as a 40-
year-old man who preys on
young children. Argenziano
introduced bills this session to
change the classification and
also strengthen the Lunsford Act
Argenziano's work on this
subject caused a sexual offend-
er to call Argenziano's office
early Wednesday morning and
leave a threatening message,
which stirred Capitol security.
While she's had her dis-
agreements with her fellow


to bump the issue to a special
session.
"It's very complicated stuff, it
really is, and you don't want to
suffer from the unintended
consequences," he said.
Florida's tax system has
been compared to a balloon.
Squeeze it in one place and
another part bulges.
That's what happened when
voters in 1992 adopted the Save
Our Homes Amendment cap-
ping annual increases for pri-
mary homes, known as home-
steads, at 3 percent.
Homestead taxes have been
squeezed down as a result, but
they have bulged up for new
home buyers and other proper-

lawmakers, Argenziano consid-
ers her fellow senators as her
extended family.
In a tearful speech on the
senate floor, she extended her
thanks and appreciation a
gesture that was returned by
her peers.
Sen. Al Lawson-D, District 6,
said he'd never forget the time
he was eating at a Tallahassee
Waffle House and in walks a
woman clad in leather, motor-
cycle helmet in hand.
"I looked up and it was Sen.
Argenziano," he said.
While the two are from dif-
ferent political parties, Lawson
said he admired her courage
and called her a good leader
and tough fighter always out
to protect consumers.
Sen. Evelyn Lynn, R-District
7, called her a role model of
strength.
"As much as we say she's


ty owners.
Many people also feel locked
into their homes because they
would lose their Save Our
Homes breaks if they move.
"Portability" proposals to let
them apply their accumulated
benefits to a new home face
another potential pitfall if they
further increase the tax dispar-
ity between homesteads and
other properties.
Several owners of second
homes from out of state already
are challenging Save Our
Homes on grounds it violates
anti-discrimination provisions
of the U.S. Constitution.
Portability could widen that
tax gap.

strong," Lynn said, "she has a
passion for humanity."
Argenziano's softer side is
something many may not see,
Lynn said, but added it's what
makes the senator's passion for
her causes so sincere.
Joining up with Argenziano
when she first took office in the
House of Representatives, Sen.
Paula Dockery said the fresh-
man lawmaker impressed her
early on because of her passion
for the environment and water
issues.
"She was a person running
for office for all the right rea-
sons," Dockery said.
She described her friend as
loyal to a fault with a tremen-
dous heart and compassion.
Argenziano said one of the
hardest parts about her service
was getting calls from people
she just couldn't help in her
capacity as a lawmaker.


Soaring property values in
recent years also have
increased the disparity, setting
off taxpayer protests that drove
the issue to the top of the
Legislature's agenda.
As complex as it is, though,
lawmakers still might have
been able to agree on some-
thing if the House and Senate
had not been so far apart in
their basic approaches.
House Speaker Marco
Rubio, R-West Miami, and
other House Republicans were
first out of the box with a bold
and daring plan. They pro-
posed getting rid of property
taxes altogether on home-
steads but increasing the

She also had a hard time
adjusting to the somewhat
cruel nature of politics where
wheeling and dealing is the
name of the game.
"There were a lot of hard
times here," Argenziano said.
"There's a process and some-
times that gets in the way"
She said special interest
groups get in the way of good
legislation or help create bad
laws and term limits have
changed the balance of power
for the worst.

make up the losses.
Taking homesteads off the
tax rolls would solve the porta-
bility issue, but House
Democrats and senators of
both parties balked at making
Florida's sales tax the nation's
highest.
Opponents argued the swap
would shift tax burden from
Florida's wealthiest residents to
other taxpayers. Rubio, though,
contended taxing the 'American

was immoral and that it's fairer
to tax consumption.

of politics works," she said.
Argenziano passed her last
bill Wednesday S.B. 1030,
which increases court fees
from $3 to $4 to provide more
training for law enforcement.
Senators voted after the
speeches and the bill passed
unanimously
"I just wish I had a tougher

after the vote.

rollback and cap of taxes with
allowances for new construc-

had a couple rollback provi-
sions, but they would have
made deeper cuts in city and
county budgets.
House Minority Leader Dan
Gelber, D-Miami Beach, said
everyone seemed to agree
there should be a rollback yet
lawmakers were unable to
work out the details.
"I can't explain it other than
brinksmanship," Gelber said.

was going to prevail and who
was going to give up first."

Tallahassee, Ocala and Crystal

Through it all, Argenziano
believes she has made a differ-
ence and represented her con-
stituents well. She said she will
still serve area residents, just
in a different capacity as a
watchdog member of the PSC.
"The people put their trust
in me," Argenziano said. "It's
an honor to have people do
that."

THRUMSTON
Continued from Page 1A

solving the lake's problems by
bringing together officials from
the Florida Department of
*Environmental Protection,
iFlorida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), Southwest Florida
Water Management District
and the county to discuss
potential restoration projects.
He said he was pleased
When FWC officials agreed to
investigate a muck removal
project at the Duval Island
. Boat Ramp in Floral City, but
disappointed by the apparent
lack of interest by water dis-
trict officials in the idea of a
team approach to solving the
lake's water and muck prob-
lems.
"I was very disappointed that
the water district stated its
case and didn't want to do any-
thing," Thurmston said. "My
whole point was getting every-
; one together. We all have com-
mon goals. Let's work together
to achieve them, and the water
District didn't see that."
Drought hits hard
FWC officials asked for time
'to "kick some mud around" at
S the Duval Island Boat Ramp
-before they give Thrumston an
answer about what can be done
'at the site and what funding
might be available for removal


of muck. They said they have
two other pending lake restora-
tion projects in Citrus County.
The entire lake chain has
been hit hard by an extended
drought, but the Floral City
Pool from the air looked more
like a vast pasture of green
grass and trees interspersed
with a few small bodies of
water. The Withlacoochee
River also had clearly receded
from its banks.
The Citrus County Sheriff's
Office ferried the scientists
and a few members of the news
media over the Floral City pool
in its new helicopter. The pilot
pointed out areas where water
once stood. The remaining
large pool of water also had
receded from its banks.
Thrumston said he was
responding to citizen requests
to remove muck from the lake
bottom at a time when water
levels are low and the lake bot-
tom is exposed. He said the
water will eventually return,
but the drought has created an
opportunity to remove muck
and restore some of the lake
bottom.
The three state agencies at
the meeting have overlapping
jurisdictions. The DEP has
authority over sovereign state
lands, which are generally
those lands beneath public
water bodies, while the water
district looks more at water
flow. FWC's interest in the
lakes relates to managing the


fish resources.
Studying system
Bruce Wirth, deputy director
of the water district, said the
agency is studying the hydrolo-
gy of the lake system and the
entire Withlacoochee River
basin to determine how the
complex system operates. The
Withlacoochee River flows
north from the Green Swamp
and empties into the Gulf of
Mexico near Yankeetown in
Levy County.
The river was once directly
connected to the Tsala Apopka
Chain of Lakes. However, the
lakes have been extensively
dammed, dredged and chan-
neled for more than 100 years,
and water levels no longer fluc-
tuate as much as they did at the
time Indian tribes lived along
its banks.
A water activist organization,
TOO FAR, is pushing the dis-
trict to remove manmade
earthen berms at the south end
of the lake system to restore
the natural flow of water to the
Floral City Pool. Wirth said the
district is not convinced
removal of the dikes is a good
idea.


He said the district is plan-
ning to install 10-gated culverts
in the earthen berm to allow
about 150 million to 175 million
gallons of water a day to flow
back into the Floral City Pool
when the Withlacoochee River
is higher. He said the culverts
will give the district an idea of
how the lake system will react
to removing the manmade
berms.
When the study of the entire
river system is finished in
about 20 months, he said the
district will have a computer
model that can calculate how
the removal of the berms might
impact the lakes. But he said
the culverts would give the dis-
trict a short-term look at the
same issue.
Keeping lakes high
Wirth said his preliminary
opinion is the manmade earth-
en berms at the south end of
the lake system probably keep
the lakes at a higher elevation
than if they were removed. He
said he believes the various
dams and other structures on
the lakes keep the three pools
about a foot-and-a-half higher
than they would be at normal


high water.
TOO FAR officials believe
the berms restrict the natural
flow of water and prevent the
lake system from flushing
itself, resulting in the lakes fill-
ing with sediment. They say
open water areas are being
taken over by marsh and later
hardwoods.
But several scientists at the
meeting said Thrumston's
approach to solving the lake's
problems did not get at the root
of what is causing the problem.
They felt the underlying causes
of the sedimentation and lack
of water flow should be studied
before attacking short-term
projects like muck and tree
removal.
"I hate to see us removing
trees just to be removing trees
and not fixing the problem,"
said Edwin Roman, a fisheries
biologist for FWC who works
with lake restoration projects.
What are the goals?
Some scientists also said
they need to know what the
long-term goals are for the lake
system before their agencies
can commit resources. Is the
long-term goal to enhance the


LL


fisheries or to keep water lev-
els high enough for residents to
use their boats and docks? Or
is it some combination of the
two? Or is the goal to restore
the lakes to their original con-
dition?
Thrumston said he felt the
agencies could do short-term
projects such as muck removal
while the longer-term studies
were in progress. He said that
would demonstrate to the resi-
dents who are constantly call-
ing him to complain that the
county and state are doing
something about the lake sys-
tem's problems.
"We're not going to be able to
eat the entire apple at one
time," Thrumston said.
Thrumston, a freshman com-
missioner, said he had worked
on organizing the meeting
since being elected and would

at 3545 N. Lecanto Highway, Beverly

dinator, at 527-4600 to register.
If you like office work, there are
packets to assemble, phone calls to
make and special projects to do.
Volunteers are also needed to visit
patients and families in private resi-
dences, nursing homes, assisted living
facilities or at the HPH Care Center in
Inverness. Consider Compassionate
Paws if you have a well-behaved
canine. This hospice program provides
willing patients with visits by therapy
dogs who have passed stringent tests. If

you can operate a video camera or have
the art for conversation, the Legacy
Program may be for you. Volunteers


must be at least 14 years old to assist in
the office, and 17 or older to interact
with patients and families.
Volunteers play a key role in carrying
out the Citrus team's mission of provid-
ing care, comfort and support to indi-
viduals affected by a life-limiting ill-
ness and their families regardless of
ability to pay. Presently, the HPH Citrus
team, which has been operating in
Citrus County for almost two years,

Special to the Chronicle
Citrus County Parks and
Recreation along with instruc-
tor Elizabeth Laughlin will
offer beginner clogging classes
starting Monday, May 14. The
classes will be at the Citrus
County Auditorium from 6:15
to 7 p.m. The cost is $3 per
class.
Clogging emphasizes the
downbeat of the music by
enthusiastic footwork and was


first developed in Europe in
the 18th century. In the United
States, it began around the
Appalachian region, then
named Appalachian Step
Dancing.
Laughlin greatly encourages
beginner cloggers. Without
them, the art of cogging would
die out.
Cloggers will tell you that it
is the most fun you can have
with your feet on the floor.
A mixture of beginner and


intermediate cloggers perform
around Citrus and neighboring
counties at festivals and assist-
ed living facilities year round.
To preregister, contact 527-
7677.
Any persons requiring rea-
sonable accommodations at
this or any other program
because of a disability or phys-
ical impairment should contact
the Parks and Recreation
office 72 hours prior to the
activity at 527-7677.

Veterans NOTES


The Disabled American
-Veterans and the Auxiliary,
Chapter 70 in Inverness, conducts
meetings at 2 p.m. the second
Tuesday monthly at the corner of
North Independence Highway and
U.S. 41 North. Last month, there
was an error concerning the
months we do not meet. We do not
meet in the months of July and
August.
Tuesday is the next meeting. It is
scheduled for the nomination and
election of officers. All DAV mem-
bers, please support our chapter
and come out and vote. Also
remember to bring in any old cell
phones that you may have for the
Cell Phones for Soldiers Program.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 19
will be the first barbecue at the
DAV Hall. This event supports
wounded veterans. Donations will
be $5 per person. Children
younger than 10 are free. Lots of
door prizes, giveaways and 50/50
raffles. The public is welcome and
encouraged to attend.
Cmdr. Martin P. Murphy and
DAV Chapter 70, in coordination
with the Superintendent "Sam"
Himmel of the Citrus County
School District, have become an
official Cell Phone for Soldiers
Drop-Off Site. This program was
started by two teenagers to help
buy pre-paid calling cards to send
to our service people overseas. For
each cell phone that is donated, 72
minutes of talk time is given to our
troops to call their loved ones back
home.
The program will accept any
make or model phone. Drop off
phones and attached batteries as
well as accessories at any Citrus
County School or the DAV. The
phones are then recycled for cash
to purchase cards or unlimited free
videophone calls. Call Annamarie

between Dunnellon and State
Road 200. Because the county
denied an extension on our hangar

we are looking for another area. At
the moment, Williston airport looks
promising for an aviation museum
and special future events.
Our Seventh Anniversary Fly-In
will be every bit as exciting as in
the past. There will be any number
of aircraft and old war birds coming
in and out during the day. There
will also be many vendors with
quality goods as well as ice cream,
peanut brittle, hot dogs, burgers,
sausages, potato salad and com
on the cob. Available will be T-
shirts, hats, aviation jewelry, patch-
es, dog tags, plants and flowers,
dog collars and accessories and
much more. You may also take the
ride of a lifetime and have the thrill
of flying in an open cockpit by-wing
Stearman, and feel the wind
beneath your wings. This will be a
fun day for the entire family. There
also will be classic cars, restored
military vehicles and motorcycles.
So plan to come out and share
with us our farewell event at
Dunnellon airport.

CITRus COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Open-air market attracts wall-to-wall people


Special I ti the (CbronicIc
Sast week, we toured the
Limbe Botanical Gar-
den. AlT'er returning to
,the Procure in 6olta via public
cab, we enjoyed
:luncIh together and
:Petra joined us. She
'had gone to a (.ol--
lege where Fr.
'George was the
principal. She
talked about the
discipline main-
tained at the school,
but the thing she
and her classmates Anne
really hated at the 8
time was having to OF A T
eat with a knife and ;;N
fork. But now she is
certainly glad she


learned western manners.
That, afternoon, we opted to
visit the market in Limbe. Bob
decided to stay there and relax,
so Petra, IA: Austin and I went in
Fr George's car: The lirst order
of the day was to exchange
money. Remember; the econo-
my is not tourist-oriented, so we
didn't recall passing any
exchange booths. We assumed
we were going to a bank, but
with most things in Cameroon,
we worked outside the system.
Petra "knew a friend who
knew a someone" and we fol-
lowed him to one of the main
streets in Limbe. The banks
there don't want to deal in dol-
lars and don't want to be both-
ered with exchanging currency,
so it takes a long time in a bank,
and you end up with a terrible
exchange rate and a huge fee
for the transaction. We would
be lucky to get 400 CFAs to the
dollar plus the fee.
Fr. George handled business,
and returned with our CFAs.
The men who change money


give a better exchange for $50s
and $100s than for $20s, since it
is easier to carry the larger U.S.
bills across the borders to
Nigeria where they get a better
exchange. So we got 500 CFAs
per dollar for the bigger bills,
and 450 for the $20s
and $10s.
We then proceed-
ed to the market. Fr.
George had asked
t, SI us to bring along the
Material we had got-

Petra's cousin met
us on a corner, and
took us to her friend
Fusillo who agreed to make
up native dress for
AVE.L each of us over-
'SELOR night. We walked
down one sidestreet
with open-air mar-


kets, then down another to a
row of cement stalls. This was a
line of tailors/seamstresses.
What was really remarkable
was that there was no electrici-
ty. The eight or so booths had
old Singer treadle machines.
The seamstress immediately
went to work eyeing us up, and
taking some minor measure-
ments first me, then Fr.
Austin. Then she began meas-
uring Fr. George. We asked if he
was having one done too, but
no, she was measuring for Bob
who didn't come with us. I
pointed out that they weren't
actually the same size, and we
were reassured that it would
be fine.
The whole market was full of
smells, from spices to sweat,
dried fish to incense. It was
wall-to-wall people. We
stopped to look at some mer-
chandise shoes and purses,
then realized it was used. In
fact, many of the offerings at
the market were used items.
Bob and I have a theory


about things at garage sales
and thrift shops. Similar to the
food chain, we call it the pos-
session chain. The more times
the item is used and sold or
given away, the lower down it is
on the possession chain. Once
it is used up and ruined, it is at
the bottom. Many of the things
we saw in the market were
pretty far down the chain. In
fact, we saw one man walking
around selling strips of gray
rags. Everything has some
value in that marketplace.
We bought a pair of
Cameroonian percussion
instruments similar to mara-
cas, but saw not much else of
interest in this part. We did wit-
ness an altercation, where a
woman and her brother came
to a stall and were yelling to
the crowd that gathered that he
had cheated them. It appeared
that public embarrassment is
the best revenge.
We got back in the car and
went to a different market to
look for souvenirs. Petra took
me to a stall for jewelry that we
combed through, picking out
some pretty necklaces and ban-
gle bracelets as gifts for back
home. She then undertook the
bartering on my behalf in
pidgin, of course. Finally, she
paid him and as we were walk-
ing toward the car, she noted
that I paid too much. Seems
that being a "white-man
woman" automatically doubles
the price for whatever I want-
ed. I told her the next time I
would just trust her to get
things for me.
There was nothing much else
that captured our attention, so
they took us to an enclosed sou-
venir shop. The woman was
about to close, but wearily
agreed to stay open a little
longer for our shopping pleas-
ure. Being neither the owner


This is an example of a typical
carved stool.


Special to the Chronicle
Our guide, Petra Bin, and Fr. George join us as we show off our new
ceremonial dress straight from the market. It is very common to
make clothing from commemorative cloth; this one is from the
50th anniversary of St. Paul's College. Note that this one carries
the image of the nearby Lady of the Angels church, the oldest in
this part of Cameroon. From left are: Petra Bin, Bob Becktel,
Marianne Becktel, Fr. Austin and Fr. George.


nor on commission, I guess she
did not regard the biggest sale
of her week to be anything more
than a delay in getting home.
The shop was small, but had
a nice array of handmade
native crafts. The people in the
northwest province are said to
be the artisans of the country,
and there were many examples
of their art, as well as local
items. We made as many selec-
tions as our converted money
allowed, and were pleased
with our purchases.
I asked Petra if there are
actually any shops in the cities,
as all we had seen were open-
air and market stalls. She told


us that there were indeed
enclosed shops in the towns,
but they were very expensive,
and they can get all they need
in the marketplace for a lot less.
We returned home to prepare
for our farewell family dinner.
We'll cover that next time.
Last Sunday's Jubilee Mass
for Fr Charles at Our Lady of
Fatima was a wonderful experi-
ence. We were happy to again
see our friends Fr. George and
Fr Andrew, the Chancellor of
the Buea diocese. And we were
especially delighted to welcome
Bishop George N'Kou, who had
been visiting Fr. George and
came to visit us the day before

also common handicrafts.

had to leave us Friday, but hap-
pily, the other two will stay for a
little while longer

A SUNaAY, IMsAY / 6, 2007


You say lavender, I say purple Sw hM tbnto 5


My home office needed repainting. OK, it
didn't need repainting so much as it
needed a good, long sandblasting. But
my thinking was that painting it would be
cheaper and faster than cleaning it That turned
out to be wrong on both counts. It
seems you just can't paint over
spaghetti on a wall, and you're sup-
posed to remove all pictures and
light-switch plates not just paint
around or over them.
And it turns out, that if you get
paint-upholstered furniture, it's what
the professionals call "ruined."
Apparently you're supposed to use a
thing called a "drop cloth." Who
knew?
"Everybody," Sue explained. MUL
That's why I don't let her in my
office very often, entirely too much
negativity. I'd rather do this stuff myself and
learn from my own mistakes.
"What color are you going to paint it?" she
asked.
"I haven't decided yet"
"Remember, dark colors will make the room
look smaller."
And I always thought the stacks of unread
newspapers and magazines were what made
the place look smaller. The three out-of-date
printers sitting beside my filing cabinet don't
help. What am I thinking? That the longer I
keep them, the more in-date they will become?
It'd been a long time since I painted anything,
and I was surprised at how much things had
changed in the paint store, like the prices. When
did paint become $40 a gallon? I can buy a gal-
lon of fine wine for that kind of money. OK, it's
not-so-fine wine, but it goes better with the
spaghetti than anything in the paint store.
The paint store was full of special rollers that
could make my walls look as if they were made
out of Italian marble or knotty pine or stenciled
by an Amish housewife. There were all kinds of
special tools and gadgets that seemed to make
any paint job much easier: masking tape that
could be removed without damaging the paint,
leak-proof buckets, roller extenders, edgers,
sandpaper, disposable painters' coveralls, tur-
pentine, paint remover, rubber gloves, brushes,
washes, spackle and trowels. The only thing I
couldn't find was paint
"Sir, you just pick a color from the card and
we'll mix the paint for you."
"You don't have to mix it All I want is a cou-

green peas, stewed tomatoes,

Tuesday: Mojo chicken quarter,
fiesta rice, green beans, whole
wheat bread, margarine, spiced


pie of gallons of white paint."
"You mean like Morning Frost or Calla Lily?"
said the 18-year-old salesman.
"No, like white."
"We have Venetian Blind. We have Bat Guano.
Did you bring a chip of this 'white?'
Our computer could analyze it and
tell you it's real name. Then we could
custom mix you a batch of it. But I
have to say, I've been working here
two months and I've never heard of
'white.'"'
"Two whole months?"
"If you count the six weeks of train-
ing.
"Is the manager around?"
V He returned a few minutes later
LEN with his boss, a 19-year-old. Finally,
we'd get to the bottom of this.
"Not a problem, I'm sure we can
find this color 'white' you're talking about. Let's
just start looking through the sample book"
I felt like the witness to a crime, trying to pick
out the perp as he slowly turned the pages. It
wasn't all the different colors that stunned me,
but that they all had names. Thousands of
names simply for brown and brownish: Apple
Butter, Labrador Retriever, Spring Break Sun
Tan, Maple Syrup, Cleveland, Guernsey,
Guinness, Cocoa, Baked Bean, Coffee Stain,
Oak, Wookie, Mud Flap, Arizona Thatch, Yellow
Snow...
"Snow! That's it. That's the color I want. Snow
is white. Snow White!"
"Snow White? Where do you old guys come up
with these weird names? Let me look up snow.
We have Slush. We have Black Ice, we have Blue
Ice, Melting Salt, Zamboni Dust, Slurpee ..."
"What about this?"
"That's just the edge of the page, sir, that's not
a color chip."
"But that's the color I want"
"Paper-colored paint? Hmmm. I'm pretty sure
that's a special order. What would your accent
color be?"
"My accent color?"
"What color paint are you going to be sten-
cilling or sponging or stamping on top of this
'white' so when you're finished it won't look
'white?'"
"Where do you keep your wallpaper?"

The only lap that really counts
in auto racing is the last lap, and
that's the lap Clint Foley led
Saturday night at Citrus County
Speedway.
Michael Lawhorn had led the
Mini Stoc feature from the start
only to he mechanical failure on
the final circuit of the 20-lap event
Foley, who had pressured
Lawhorn from the first lap, took
control of the event and held off
Phillip Joyner for the win.
Joyner followed for second,


to Lawhom


Jonathan Camp third, Steve
Griffin fourth, George Neumann
fifth, Don Smith sixth, Mark
Powers seventh, Todd Haught
eighth, Lawhorn ninth, and Gary
Roebuck tenth.
A disqualification in 4-cylinder
Bomber action gave Jeff Eberly
the win over Chris Harvey, Phil
Edwards, Patric Conner, Candie
Moniz, Travis Hoefler, Kevin
Stone, Josheau Fairchild and Don
Haag.
Anthony LaPoint was the original
race winner but was disqualified in

ITnofficially, Mike Loudy
topped the 24-car Street Stock
feature over Tim Alexander,
Richie Smith, Todd Downs and
Alvin Williamson. Alexander
was subsequently disqualified
'in the mandatory post-race
technical inspection. Finishing
out the top ten included John
Zuidema, Jim Hand Curtis
Flanagan, Ernie Reed, Jason
VanOchten and Wayne Heater,
respectively.
Further technical inspec-
tions were taking place at
press time.
Mike Bresnahan outlasted a
handful of late-race cautions to
secure his spot in the winner's
circle in Late Model action.
Bresnahan won a six-car run
for the lead of the 35-lap event
- after five circuits of side-by-
side action between Keith
Zavrel, Scott Grossenbacher,
Daniel Webster, Herb
Neumann Jr and Gary Grubbs.
Bresnahan took control on

lap five and slowly powered
away to a comfortable 10-car
lead over the 16-car field. His
only competition came by way
of caution periods that closed
the gap he had created
between himself and the field.
Despite the cautions,
Bresnahan was able to power
away on each restart to win the
event uncontested.
Webster rebounded from a
late-race incident where he
was collected in a battle
between Neumann and
Grubbs. Webster was awarded
his position on the track while
the Neumann and Grubbs
were relegated to the rear of
the field, and went on to finish
second ahead of Jim Smith,
Danny Johnson, Perry
Lovelady, and Mike Bell.
Neumann came back to finish
seventh, Bert Morris finished
eighth, Grubbs ninth, and Dale
Sanders finished tenth.
The Florida Midget Racing
Auto Association win went to
Brandon Cagle. Jack Duffy,
Ernie Teed Jr., Eric Purcell,
and Michael Elder rounded
out the top five.
The 50-lap Limited
Sportsman feature was still
underway at press time.

Economy

should be

a priority
With the stock market
setting new records,
it's hard to under-
stand why Citrus County's
economy is suddenly stuck in
the economic doldrums.
The performance of the
stock market is important here
because so many residents are
retired and live a comfortable
lifestyle from investments,
pensions and the like. A boom-
ing stock market produces con-
sumer confidence and that
drives spending.
But the second half of the
economic equation involves
local jobs, and that's where
Citrus County continues to
struggle. Because of the
slumping real estate market,
hundreds of people have lost
their jobs in recent months as
companies have cut back We
have not had massive layoffs
making the headlines because
we don't have massive manu-
facturing firms here.
We have hundreds of small
companies, and many of them
have reduced the workforce.
The free-enterprise system
always has ups and downs that
we must live with, but in most
cases, local government is
much more involved in trying
to create jobs than Citrus
County has been.
The case in point came two

dency to sometimes force
through solutions in the last
hours of the annual session and
then live to regret their hasti-
ness for the rest of the year.
The special session will start
June 12 to just focus on the tax
issue.
In Citrus County, we've heard
complaints from county and
school officials that the state
Legislature is trying to come up
with solutions that limit local
spending. Our local leaders
believe this is hypocritical
because the changes won't have
anything to do with how state
legislators spend money.
While there might be a dose of
hypocrisy involved, to a great
degree our local officials
brought the demand for reforms
on themselves. County commis-
sioners have pushed through
huge tax increases the past two
years.
During a two-year period,
property values increased by 55
percent. By holding the millage
rate flat, local government got an
automatic corresponding
increase in dollars. Some of
those new dollars were legiti-
mate because they came from
new homes and businesses con-
structed here. But most of the
increase in tax dollars came
because the valuation of existing
homes and businesses skyrock-
eted.
With dollar signs twinkling in
their eyes, our local officials
sought to distance themselves


Murtha's plan C
John Murtha, in a
speech in Pennsylvania,
disclosed that he and
Nancy Pelosi had a plan
called "slow bleed" to get
our troops out of Iraq, and
it's working. They're with-
holding the funds for our CAUL
troops. Thus, those that 5 n6
are supposed to rotate out 5O3
and come home are asked
to stay over in Iraq. What
would be money to repair our
equipment for our troops has
ended. Also, those that are going
to Iraq have fallen short on their
training because of lack of funds.
Oh, so you kill a few thousand
American young men so what?
The end result is to try to win the
election. After all, it's more impor-
tant that the Democrats control
the White House, the House and
the Senate than it is for our
troops to have the equipment they
need.
Helpful hair
This is for "Cut the ponytail":


Crist and the Legislature to
address the need for tax reform.
When the legislators meet for
the June session they have to
address the tremendous
inequities in the tax system. The
3 percent tax cap has created
huge differences in the amount
of taxes that homeowners pay.
People living in similar homes in
the same neighborhood have
vast differences in their tax bills,
based on how long they've lived
in their home.
Some folks get the same serv-
ices and pay twice the taxes. It
makes no sense.
Current residents are afraid to
sell their home and buy another
because their new tax rate
would double or triple.
Businesses have no exemption
protection and are faced with
annual increases that are huge.
These costs are simply passed
along to consumers, which
increases the overall cost of liv-
ing in Florida.
Snowbirds with second homes
in Florida also are without pro-
tection and our tax system is
making the Sunshine State too
expensive for many to be season-
al residents.
Government has been tinker-
ing with the tax system for
decades and the end result is
that we've produced a system
that is no longer fair.
The Legislature needs to come
back in June and see if it can
create a new system that is fair
to all involved.

Silent generals of the war


BY DOUGLAS COHN AND
ELEANOR CLIFT
The military community was
rocked this week by an article
in a military journal blasting
U.S. generals for the way they've run
the Iraq war. Even more surprising
than the gritty critique of the military
leadership is its author, an active-duty
officer serving in Iraq. We've seen a
number of retired generals speaking
out about the war's mismanagement,
but there's a special place in the
annals of war courage for a high-rank-
ing officer who dares to tell the truth
knowing it is likely to end his career.
Giving this expose' added weight is
the fact that its author, Lt. Col. Paul
Yingling, was singled out for praise by
President Bush for the work his unit
did in curbing violence in the Iraqi
province of Tall Afar. Yingling is the
deputy commander of the 3rd
Armored Cavalry Regiment In a
March 2006 speech, Bush cited the
unit's performance as a model for
how to proceed in Iraq. Now we learn
that a key player in that effort does
not share the president's rosy assess-
ment
Yingling's article is titled, '"A failure
in generalship," and he doesn't spare
anybody from the lash. "America's
generals have repeated the mistakes
of Vietnam in Iraq," he says. They
didn't prepare for the war they would
have to fight, going into Iraq with too
few troops and belatedly recognizing
they were battling an insurgency


Washington MERRY-GO-ROUND-


When things began to go awry, they
didn't speak up but instead put the
best face on what they knew was a
widening disaster. Perhaps worst of
all, they didn't level with the Congress
and the American people, remaining
silent as the politicians advanced
ever more fanciful rationales for
committing young men and women to
war.
"Failing to visualize future battle-
fields represents a lapse in profes-
sional competence," Yingling writes,
"but seeing those fields clearly and
saying nothing is an even more seri-
ous lapse in professional character"
Historians will debate who is at
greater fault, the civilian leaders who
embarked upon a war unprepared for
the consequences, or the generals
tasked with fighting that war who did
not go public with their doubts. '"A
failure in generalship" does not tell
us anything we didn't already know,
but hearing it firsthand from some-
body deep in the military culture
underscores how futile the mission as
currently constituted is in Iraq. The
administration evidently realizes
their policy is in disarray or they
wouldn't be trying to recruit a person
of stature to act as a war czar and bail
them out. Despite Bush's public confi-
dence in the so-called surge, it has
accomplished little beyond providing
more U.S. targets for the warring par-


ties in Iraq.
The administration's ongoing
search for a czar reveals how little
confidence they have, in the people
already in place. The Secretary of
Defense should be running the war,
but Robert Gates, a former CIA direc-
tor, came out of the intelligence com-
munity and doesn't have the expertise
or the star power to take control.
Stephen Hadley, the national security
adviser, is a soft-spoken bureaucrat
who doesn't conjure up the image of a
war czar.
Another person who should have a
major role in running the war is the
Army chief of staff, but that's General,
Casey, who until he was promoted, ,
commanded the troops in Iraq. But he
wasn't really promoted; he was fired
and kicked upstairs.
"To understand how the U.S. could
face defeat at the hands of a weaker
insurgent enemy for the second time
in a generation, we must look at the
structural influences that produce
our general officer corps," Yingling
writes.
He doesn't blame any one leader,
but faults a system that rewards yes
men and stifles dissent That indict-
ment is as true for the Bush adminis-i
tration as it is for the military.

LETTERS ..to the Editor


Conflict of interest
Fabio Sanservino's vitriolic letter
referred to Marilyn Day as a left-wing
liberal because she "supports the
troops and wants to bring them
home" position.
Approximately 60 percent of
Americans disagree with President
Bush's stance on the War in Iraq.
Does Mr. Sanservino consider those
60 percent left-wing liberal as well?
Then are the remaining 40 percent
right-wing fascists?
Resorting to labels instead of inde-
pendent reasoning is lazy and danger-
ous. It is a fact that Bush's rush to
invade Iraq was based upon incom-
plete and faulty intelligence. Iraq has
disintegrated into a sectarian civil
war, with no exit strategy plan from
Bush.
There is an inherent conflict of
interest. Either you bring our troops
home or, as Bush insists, keep send-


ing more of our young mei
women to Iraq, to die ther

I'd like to save the world, but some things are off-limits


Once again, I feel myself
sliding down a slippery
slope by writing about
something I should leave
alone. Period.
My sweetheart has warned
me to stay away from "hot" top-
ics, especially things which set
liberals against conservatives or
Democrats against Republicans.
I try to listen, but sometimes I
simply can't keep my mouth shut
or, as it is in this case, my fingers
off the keyboard.
Today's hot topic is global
warming.
It was only a few short years
ago that some of the same folks
who now warn about things
heating up were aghast at the
,thoughts of a modern ice age. A

has entered the fray
lamenting an "incon-
venient truth" and

Parkway inevitable
I couldn't believe it in


Tuesday's paper, May 1, on the
Sugarmill Woods lobbying
against the parkway moving
east. They want to move it. I
don't understand what they're
trying to do. They need to get
a life. That parkway needs to
go in and Sugarmill Woods
just complains about every-
thing. They need to back off
and let the parkway go
through due to the heavy
amount of traffic. It's going to
happen anyway. They just
need to worry about other
things and leave the parkway
enterprise system alone.
Build a wall
You people that are talking


in Sugarmill Woods about the
parkway going through, I don't
want it, either. But nobody
fought (against) this light out
front, which is the people on
the west have to hear all the
noise with all the big trucks
thumping, all the motorcycles
and everybody that has to
stop at the light and all the
noise that it creates. We used
to have the quiet birds, ani-
mals all kinds of quietness
here...We want a wall to pro-
tect us from (U.S.) 19 and the
stupid light that does nothing
but back up traffic constantly.
So if one thing gets done,
another thing has to get done.
This has to be looked into, too.

Letters to the EDITOR


Suspending the writ
Re: L.M.Eastman's letter,
"Wrong direction," April 23.
I have ever been swayed by
polls! The outcome of polls is
driven by how the questions
are presented and by whom.
The.results are therefore
devalued.
Eastman assumes much by
saying, "Death and wounding
of our youth means nothing to
him." Two of my sons have
responded to "The Call to
Arms" by our country and the
commander in chief. One son
served in operation "Desert
Storm" with honor. Our
younger son has served two
i tours of duty in Iraq, partici-
pating in the initial invasion of
Iraq, "Operation Iraq
Freedom." He served an addi-
tional 14 months in Iraq on his
_second tour of duty to his
country!
I will not dignify your
:-assumption further
This is not the first time a


president has suspended the
writ of habeas corpus.
President Abraham Lincoln
suspended it in 1861 after the
attack on Fort Sumter by the
Confederacy. President
Ulysses. S. Grant suspended it
in 1871 and sent federal troops
to South Carolina to stop
attacks by the Ku Klux Klan
against newly emancipated
black citizens.
President George W Bush
suspended it, with the support
and passing by Congress, in
2006 to protect the American
people from those who felt our
enemy combatants were enti-
tled to our privileges of our
Constitution. The President
exercised his right. Article 1,
section 9 states "the privilege
of the writ of habeas corpus
shall not be suspended, unless
when in the case of rebellion,
invasion, the public safety may
require it" A key word is priv-

Confident women
This is in response to "Make
first move," about "Here we go
again," about strange women in
Florida. They are strange down
here, these women in Florida.
The woman says, "Oh, you have
to make the first move." Half of
these women down here have
husbands and boyfriends and
they're looking at other guys,


first of all. Secondly, these
women down here look at every
Tom, Dick and Harry. How do
they know the guy's interested
in them? Maybe that's not his
type. What makes these
women so confident down
here?...
Units per acres
This is in regard to Hidden
Preserve, where they are per-
mitting about 30 units per acre
to develop a PUD. We just wish
that there would be some
equality in the application of
density levels in the zoning.
This type of zoning is very
unfair to us people who can
only have one unit per 20
acres. It's not only just an
injustice, but it's also a control
or a division of the wealth to
certain ones while others are
kept poor. It's also a matter of
applying our taxes to all areas
of the county and cities equi-
tably, not just to favorite areas.
We'd really like to see some of
these concerns and injustices
addressed and corrected.

thing, I'm lucky if I have one
bag of trash to take to the
dump a week. Everything, prac-
tically, is recyclable. I am just
ecstatic about this simple,
amusing thing. And I am grate-
ful that Nos. 1 and 2 cah be
accepted because they are the
most easily recyclable,
biodegradable. I wish that
everyone would recycle instead
of thinking it's somebody else's
responsibility and not worrying
about the future. That makes a
great difference...I am glad it
finally happened.
No pipes to Tampa
In case you missed reading
the article by Bob Barnesky in
the Chronicle Sunday, April 15,
page 4C, please go back and
read it, "Parkway extension." We
saw the pipes being buried up
U.S. 19 north of Crystal River,
and now they have grass grow-
ing on them. Save our water.
Let's not pipe it to Tampa.

Rolling Thunder anniversary nears, and 78,000 still missing


This year on Memorial
Day weekend, Rolling
Thunder will celebrate
the 20th anniversary of its
demonstration in Washington,
D.C. What started out with a
few thousand demonstrators
demanding the return of and a
full accounting for all
Americans being held as pris-
oners of war and those listed as
missing in action has now
become the longest running
and largest one-day demon-
stration in the world. More
than 500,000 supporters now
join us yearly in an attempt to
make our concerns known to
those individuals representing
us in Washington.
During the 20 years we have
been doing this, our main mis-
sion has remained the same and
never wavered: a full account-
ing for all of our prisoners of war
and those listed as missing in
action and a resolution of all the


live POW sightings.
Currently, more than 78,000
Americans are unaccounted
for from all conflicts since
World War I, including 1,785
from Vietnam. A new book, "An
Enormous Crime," the defini-
tive account of American
POWs abandoned in Southeast
Asia, by former Congressman
Bill Hendon from North
Carolina, will be released
Memorial Day
It is time to put to rest all the
questions regarding our POWs
in Southeast Asia. I urge you to
contact your congressional rep-
resentatives in Washington and
ask them to sign on as co-spon-
sors of H. Res. 111, a bill to
establish in the House of
Representatives a select com-
mittee on POW/MIA affairs. If
there are live POWs out there,
let's get them home now!
To all families with loved
ones serving on active duty in


the military, here is something
you probably did not know. If
your loved one is captured by
the enemy, he or she may not
be afforded the international
recognition and moral dignity,
as well as the rights and treat-
ment, they are entitled to
under the provisions of the
Geneva Convention.
Why is this? Because in
December 2000, the
Department of Defense under
directive 1300.18 changed the
classification of our captured
soldiers to MIA-C.
Ask Matt Maupin's family or
Ahmed Altaie's family how they
feel about this change. Are we
setting ourselves up so that for-
eign governments can treat our
captured soldiers any way they
wish without having to answer
for their barbaric behavior?
I urge you to contact your
representatives in Washington,
D.C., and let them know you


find this unacceptable and you
want this classification
changed back to POW/MIA
immediately. Locally, contact
your representatives in
Tallahassee and ask them to
join in with the State Houses
across the United States that
have already passed resolu-
tions demanding that the
Department of Defense change
this classification.
I just love watching some of
these politicians in Washington
talk When their mouths move,
they seem to always move in
two directions. Out of one side
of their mouths, they say: "Let's
grant legal status to 12 million
illegal immigrants. Let's give
them an education, health care
and retirement benefits."
Then, the other side of their
mouths move and you hear
them say: "Our VA health care
system is overburdened. Let's
raise the Tri-Care payments to


our veterans, raise the co-pay
for prescription drugs," and my
all-time favorite now, "and let's
charge an enrollment fee to
veterans entering the VA
healthcare system!"
Are you kidding me? An
enrollment fee? I imagine that
if you asked any veteran, they
would tell you that they paid
that fee after they completed
the first day of boot camp!
Why is the government intent
on trying to balance the budget
by shortchanging veterans? You
always hear about how much
the VA budget has been
increased under one adminis-
tration or another. We don't
care about your numbers. It is
obviously falling woefully short
of what is needed. Get it done!
Only a very small percentage
of Americans offer to serve our
country for four years or more.
They should receive the red
carpet treatment, not aban-


doned to fend for themselves in
a system that works only for
those most persistent in
demanding it.
I urge you this Memorial Day
to take a moment to reflect on
the sacrifices a small percent-
age of Americans and their
families made to keep this
country free and prosperous.
Pray for those families with
loved ones still unaccounted
for that they may soon have clo-
sure. Pray that our troops in
harm's way return home safe,
and demand that our govern-
ment accounts for every person
who answers the call of his
country and that all of their
needs are provided for after
they have finished serving
their country.

of Rolling Thunder Inc.

Letters to the EDITOR:


Hot Corner: WAR


Mixed message
Any people who say "support
the troops"...they mean "sup-
port the president," which is just
the opposite of supporting the
troops. The person who wants to
bring the troops home safely to
their families that's the per-
son who's supporting them. The
person who wants to keep them
over there for another 15
months so they can get killed or
maimed that doesn't support
them. That supports the presi-
dent and his agenda. So let's be
sure that we understand the dif-
ference between the two.
Different story
In regard to "They hate us,"
in Thursday, April 26's newspa-
per: President Bush and Vice
President Cheney have
increased the hate the terror-
ists feel toward the United
States of America by waging a
war of choice in Iraq. Going
after the terrorists who
bombed us on 9/11 is an
entirely different story. That
could have been solved by a
police action. Law enforcement
could have rounded up those

the queen to The Cove for
medium-dry chicken wings
and a cold one or some tea.
Knowing that Her Majesty has
a genuine appreciation for
hats, I'd purchase her a Cove
ball cap as a practical keep-
sake.
8 p.m. Realizing that
Her Majesty has not yet been
greeted with ceremonial fan-
fare reserved for a monarch,
we'd bring her to the Friday
night session of our garage
band. We're getting one or two
Beatles songs down these
days, so maybe we'd run them

bars for the rest of their life, like
the ones who previously
bombed the World Trade Center
are. Going to war and turning
two countries into dust is not a
way to gain the affection of the
people in the Middle East.
Let's send lefties
I just read this "Swap
troops." Bring our troops back
and send the bleeding-heart lib-
erals. Better yet, let's send
some of these big-mouth arm-
chair heroes that have never
served but they can tell you
how to fight a war... Let's send
them instead and let them get
a taste of it and see how it is.
There's no proof
I just listened to the radio
program where Mitch
McConnell related the war in
Iraq to 9/11... I'd just like to
point out that there has never
been proof of the relationship.
It's just more Bush lies.
Missing, missing
Reading the article in the
Chronicle on Friday, April 27,

it is in attracting business and
creating new jobs. Our county
commissioners all say they
want to create new jobs, but
they're not willing to do the
heavy lifting it takes to com-
pete with other communities in
Florida and across the nation.
While other communities
have established incentives to
attract industry and business,
Citrus County created impact
fees to make it more difficult to
expand existing businesses or
attract new ones. It's business
and industry that create the
higher-paying jobs in any com-
munity.
Fortunately, Citrus County
has Progress Energy in Crystal
River. The utility company is
the largest private employer
and the largest taxpayer in
Citrus County. Citizens some-
times forget that Progress

Midnight-8 a.m. The
queen rests.
9 a.m. Queen Elizabeth
is whisked off in the Silverado
and we drive about a half mile
to B&W Rexall Drugs
Restaurant to treat her to the
89-cent breakfast special.
10 a.m. We venture to
Floral City where we view the
Wishing Stone Tavern, Rosko
Manor, Hills of Rest Cemetery
and then stroll the oak-lined
streets.
E 11 a.m. We pick up
some bait at the convenience
store and head out to Duval

drought has hurt the fishing.

Demise of unions
Toyota is now the largest
selling automaker in the
United States. It has done this
:y making a quality product
without the anchor of obscene
anion benefits. General
VIotors is closing plants and
Laying off union workers.
Using Larry Johansen's logic,
all Toyota buyers must be
Republicans. He won't admit
it, but the unions have caused
their own demise. Ford is clos-
ing plants, forcing workers to
retire, Chrysler is for sale and
the Republicans are the
blame.
The auto industry is only
)ne example of greedy unions
paying the piper
Historically, union officials
have long been associated
with corruption and organized
crime. Jimmy Hoffa sleeps


about the briefing that Gen.
Patreaus gave to the U.S.
Senate, the paper, not unexpect-
ed, left out that fact that two
most outspoken critics could not
take the time to find out first-
hand what was going on. Yes,
both Reid and Pelosi were miss-
ing, and I wonder why. Is it they
might find out the truth and this
is why the Chronicle did not
mention it also? Just more
naysayers to hurt our men that
are fighting to protect you and
me. Signed, retired Army.
Cover the cost
So much for Mr. Bush's con-
cern for our troops. If they are
lucky to get leave for 14 days or
so, the Army brings them
halfway and then they have to
pay to get to the base they call
home. I wish some of these
Republicans would open their
eyes and see what Mr. Bush is
doing to this country and to our
service people. It's a dirty, rotten
shame that a young man over
there has to pay his way halfway
home in order to see his family.
That's just heartbreaking to me,
but you Republicans, you don't
think so.


ASFI is just the type of employer that
Citrus County should be attracting; but
instead we stand ready to lose it.


Energy pays nearly 15 percent
of the total property taxes,
thereby subsidizing the efforts
of local government. It also
provides some of the highest-
paying jobs in our community.
The utility did announce this
past week it will invest another
$1.6 billion in Crystal River.
The investment will help
expand the capacity of the
existing nuclear plant and
install new pollution control
equipment on the coal plants.
That will mean more local
employment.
But Progress Energy has
made the decision to seek


Withlacoochee State Forest to
show the queen the caves, but
pre-arrange for someone to
arrive first with spray-paint to
cover up any curse words
adorning the rock
2 p.m. We visit
Homosassa Springs Wildlife
State Park and make a point of
steering clear of hippo
Lucifer's "splatter zone."
M 3 p.m. We drive to Fort
Island Gulf Beach where we
can marvel at the juxtaposi-
tion of nature's wonders with
the Progress Energy power
complex.
4 p.m. The three of us
stroll from Third Street pier,
through the old downtown,
shop in Heritage Village and
end at City Hall, where we talk
about how in America some-
times cities have many city
managers during the course of
a few years.
5 p.m. It's off to Inglis


approval to build a new nuclear
plant right over the county line
in Levy County. Levy will get
the tax benefit of the project,
but Citrus County will still pro-
vide much of the workforce.
What part of that decision
was made because of Citrus
County's unfriendly reputation
toward business and industry?
If Citrus County is going to
play in the major leagues of job
growth, it has to get serious
about attracting the right kinds
of businesses. ASFI is the right
kind of business.
These entities flourish when
government gets involved and


with the fishes.
In New York, state employ-
ees are forced by law to pay
union dues. New York unions
have yet to find a leftist liberal
they couldn't support. The
NYS Democratic Party rolled
over and played dead so that
Hillary Clinton could run for
president. She has millions in
campaign funds, thanks to
thousands of Republican state
workers.
Historically, teachers unions
are primary supporters of the
Democratic Party, supplying
funds and volunteers for polit-
ical campaigns.
Since taking control of
Congress, Democrats are in
the process of taking basic
rights away from American
workers.
They have proposed a bill
that would strip away the use


of a secret ballot when voting
for union representation.
Workers would have to pro-
claim publicly how they voted
and be subjected to union
intimidation. (Leftist version
of Democracy in action.)
As for Mr. Johansen's com-
ments about CEO benefits, this
is America, we are a capitalis-
tic society and despite his
political bias, Republicans are
not responsible for the
obscene and ridiculous con-
tracts given to corporate per-
sonnel.
Of course, more govern-
ment control could do away
with CEOs and put unions in
charge.
As a former union worker
and official, thanks but no
thanks, and I will continue to
shop at Wal-Mart

Risky government economics impact insurance


Nobody likes insurance
companies. No reason
to.
The agents may be our
friends, but the companies are
not. They are businesses whose
only goal is to make a decent
profit for their shareholders
and owners while managing
risk
We pay our premiums volun-
tarily because we either cannot
or wish not to take on financial
risk
All the insurance companies
have lost a great deal of money
on their Florida property busi-
ness in the past few years. As a
result, property premiums in
Florida have been increased to
a level that threatens marginal
homeowners and puts a
damper on economic develop-
ment, particularly in vulnera-


ble coastal areas. Many
Floridians clamored for relief.
This was a crisis Gov.
Charlie Crist promised to fix.
The free market solution
would have been to accept the
reality that Florida is a riskier
state than many others in
which to own property (and a
nicer place to live!). So long as
there was no collusion to main-
tain high premiums, let the
private insurance companies
take the risks and compete for
our business on the basis of
price.
The state could have assisted
the few truly needy who may be
forced to give up a home
because of higher premiums.
In a short time, if we had mild
hurricane seasons such as the
last, the premiums would come
down under competitive pres-


sures. If we entered a cycle of
more and stronger hurricanes,
as some predict, premiums
would remain high and per-
haps go even higher to cover
the real risks. At that point,
each of us would have to make
his own decision about the ben-
efits of living in Florida versus
the costs and risks.
Characterizing the insurance
industry as "monolithic and
profiteering," Gov. Crist and
the Legislature were not will-
ing to let the market_work. The
governor chose, in essence, to
self insure against the next big
storm. The problem with that
choice is that the state does not
have the money.
The state-owned insurer,
Citizens, is reported to have only
$1 billion in cash plus a line of
credit to $8 billion to cover a


The state-owned insurer, Citizens, is
reported to have only $1 billion in cash
plus a line of credit to $8 billion to cover
a potential risk of $32 billion.


potential risk of $32 billion.
Private insurers, unable to
raise their premiums, and
unable to compete with the
"socialized" Citizens Insurance
Company, are exiting the state,
just as a one would predict.
Those companies remaining
are offering policies with lower
premiums based on reinsur-
ance polices guaranteed by the
state.
Putting this in perspective,
private insurance paid


Floridians about $40 billion for
damages from Katrina alone. If
we sustain another season of
frequent and damaging storms
as predicted, Citizens is going
broke. And homeowners are
likely to see the mother of all
assessments added to their
insurance bills by the state.
In effect, each one of us is
self-insuring a significant por-
tion of his own property while
the state takes on financial
risks it can ill afford and which


are better spread among pri-
vate insurers with more finan-
cial resources.
Gov. Crist is a good man and!
means well. So does the,
Legislature. But, folks, this
plan is economic foolishness
not worthy of anyone who has'
even a basic understanding of
economic theory. It will not
work.

degree from New York

sDon't play in road
To the 12-year-old boy on
playing in the road in Beverly
Hills: The person, I'm sure, has
not lost their mind. They will,
though, one day when you are
playing in the road, if they hit
you. They will live the rest of
their lives feeling it was their
fault when, in fact, the fault
lays with the children who play
in the road or other people's
yards, and with their irrespon-
sible parents who allow this to
happen. Then when something
happens and it will they
will cry, "Mourn my child." As
to where you can play try
your own yard and driveway or
the park.
Save horses
Well, finally and thank good-
ness. I'm glad to see that our
commissioners or our school
board I'm not sure who's
responsible for this are final-
ly doing something about our
pets in case of evacuation. I
see where they're putting cages
up for small animals and I just
anticipate they're going to do
the same thing for my horses.
I've got three horses and I
think a corral right near the
school or at the school would
just be a wonderful thing. So
thank goodness they're doing
something for my pets.
iNo safe place
I just heard Brian Williams
after the most recent suicide
attack in Baghdad at the
Parliament, talking about how
there's no place that was safe. I
don't know how many people
paid any attention during the
Clinton years, but twice people
fired guns at the White House
in Washington, D.C., where you
can't have a gun, and once
somebody tried to crash a
plane into it. In that case, I
think we should immediately
evacuate the entire government
from Washington, D.C.,
because it's not a safe place,
just like Baghdad's not a safe
place.
Run in fur coat
This just a small, little mes-
sage to you people that are fit-
ness freaks and you run up and
down. the road or walk real fast
up and down the road and you
make the poor little dog run
behind you. Well, I suggest you
put on a fur coat and that's
how you run from now on.
Walter Reed care
This is for the person com-
plaining about Walter Reed. If
you've never been there, then
you have no idea who they
cared for. I would go there
every six months for tests while
my husband was in the service.
Other than military and their
families, a lot of our govern-
ment officials have been cared
for there. Even if it is only
treating the military and their
families, retired or active duty,
they have earned the right to
be treated there. As for the ille-
gal aliens send them home.
They haven't earned the right
to be treated there. If it is in
need of repair, maybe our gov-
ernment should use the taxpay-
ers' money to fix it up, not fix
up other countries who don't
approve of what we've done
after we do it anyway.
Speak English
A letter in today's paper
defending Bank of America
said that 48 percent of the ille-
gals or Mexicans in Los
Angeles have Social Security
numbers when they get their
credit card. Well, 52 percent
don't. If you're African-
American, Caucasian or Asian,
try getting a credit card with
* Bank of America without a
Social Security number. You
* can't. When else in this coun-
try's history have people


migrated to our country,
refused to learn our language
and refused to go by our rules?
This is terrible. We have never
had a group not willing to dis-
seminate into our culture. They
want us to learn Spanish. If
you don't believe this, go into a
Home Depot or Lowes and see
if everything is not in Spanish
and English. Isn't it time that
we wake up, America? If they
want to come to this country,
we should welcome them with
open arms, but learn our lan-
guage and learn our culture.
Garage sale thief
... Thieves come in to garage
sales. I had a garage sale last
week, and you can't believe the
people... I had an old lady that
stole 21 brass double-ended
snaps I know she's a dealer
- and other people that stole
a $110 electrical tester. You
can't believe the thieves that
come. I made a mistake by let-
ting them in my garage and in
my house, and I'm still missing
stuff that they found. I hope
somebody can figure this out
... People going to have garage
sales (need to) watch the peo-
ple.
Union benefits
Today, Friday the 13th. Two
articles are in Sound Off about
the unions, praising them. I
guess it's easy to praise the
pea-pickin' unions because
you're getting and reaping the
benefits of the free hospitaliza-
tion and almost no cost for
medicines and all that kind of
business. But you forget that's
why we're paying $3 a gallon
for gasoline today it's
because of the unions. You
people are never satisfied. The
guy pushing the broom up
there where they make the cars
is making $25 an hour, and
they have the nerve to go on
strike every now and then and
say "I can't live on it, I need
more." How much more do
these people need? It's time to
realize that you've really done
well. But again, it's hard to be
objective when you're on the
end of reaping the benefits of
the medicines and etc.
Labor costs
Look, it's all well and good
praising the unions to the
skies, and they certainly had
their place. But there are such
things as greed, gluttony and
going too far, which have
caused companies to go out of
America for reasonable labor
costs.
Help our own
There is a family in need in
Homosassa. Their 19-year-old
son was in an ATV accident.
They have no insurance; were
told at Tampa that he wasn't
out of the woods when he was
released due to not having any
insurance. They have been
everywhere and still get no
help. What I want to know is,
we can help people in foreign
countries, why can't we help
our own?
Nice children
I'd like to congratulate the
woman who had six children in
Wal-Mart for their (good)
behavior. There was no crying.
There was no saying, "I want
this" or "I want that." Just well-
behaved children, well man-
nered. Keep it up. It's good
work. As for the other woman,
she needs to compare herself
to the woman with six children.
She only had one child, who
whined and cried and pitched a
fit. She could learn something
from the other woman.
Congratulations to the woman
with six children. You're doing
a good job. Keep it up.
Eye for an eye
Congratulations, Charlene
Dawe, in writing for the unborn


in today's Chronicle, the "Bible
speaks," April 13. The Bible, in
Exodus 22, clearly declares
that the person who destroys a
woman's fruit shall be pun-
ished an eye for an eye and a
tooth for a tooth. Abortion
stops a beating heart. The
writer who favors abortion
should thank God that her
mother did not believe in abor-
tion.
Handy delivery
I'd like to thank the Chronicle
carrier that delivers on New
Fawn Avenue in Beverly Hills.
He or she puts my newspaper
right up on my garage door
and I only have to walk a few
steps to get it, and I really
appreciate it. Thank you.
15-month tours
George Bush seems to be a
very smart president. He sends
troops to Iraq for a 15-month
tour at a time not continual-
ly, but 15 months at a time. In
order to be eligible for VA ben-
efits, you must continue 24
months, two years of continu-
ous service at one time, with
no breaks in between. Fifteen
months does not make you eli-
gible as a veteran, only if
you're injured. If you're not
injured, you don't get any bene-
fits whatsoever. You have to
serve a full 24 months in the
service, and 15 months, again,
does not make you eligible
unless you are injured. If
injured while on duty, then
you're eligible. If not, you're
not eligible. Look it up. Call the
VA and check it out. That's
what's happening. I'm a veter-
an I know.
Restart transactions
When are you going to pub-
lish the full property transac-
tions in the Homefront? You tell
us to go online. We do not all
have computers that is why
we buy your newspaper. We
want the transactions back.
Attract business
I do not always agree with
the editorials of Gerry
Mulligan, but he was absolutely
correct. Facing an onslaught of
foreclosures, business cutbacks
and loss of jobs in the home
building industry, this is not
the time to institute large
impact fees and new taxes,
especially on businesses and
the residents who love Citrus
County and are here for the
long haul. We will be the ones
who will have to pick up the
pieces left by speculators and
carpetbaggers. Our government
officials should be studying
how to attract new businesses
to Citrus County, not how to
drive them away.
Mind manatees
Manatees are still out here.
April 12, we were fishing and
four or five a couple big
ones and babies came by.
Four, five, six manatees were
swimming around in 4 or 5 feet
of water. So drive slowly if '
you're close to the channel out
there at Mason Creek.
Ride the bus
Find it interesting that the
call-in person says they're late
to work every day because of
the traffic at the Crystal River
High School. Maybe her kids
should take the bus. That way
she can get to work on time.
Maybe if they just left 15 min-
utes earlier, she wouldn't be
late. As a side note: I think if I
was her employer or someone
that had to work with her, I
really wouldn't want to be, with
her being late every day. So the
key thing is to leave earlier,
beat the crowd, get to work
early and don't be such a pain
in the neck.
Left in dark
It's pretty sad. Our lights

Walking dog
This is to the nasty reply I
got about walking my dog:
I'm not advocating for a dog
park. It would be nice to have
somewhere to walk my dog.

to throw all their broken beer

ly isn't in your yard.

I just want to thank the guy

CINiENTARY CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


6C SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2007


Hot Corner: WAR


Hot Comer: SHERIFF


Mixed message
Any people who say "support the
troops"...they mean "support the president,"
which is just the opposite of supporting the
troops. The person who wants to bring the
troops home safely to their families that's the
person who's supporting them. The person who
wants to keep them over there for another 15
months so they can get killed or maimed -
that doesn't support them. That supports the
president and his agenda. So let's be sure that
we understand the difference between the two.
Different story
In regard to "They hate us," in Thursday, April
26's newspaper: President Bush and Vice
President Cheney have increased the hate the
terrorists feel toward the United States of
America by waging a war of choice in Iraq.
Going after the terrorists who bombed us on
9/11 is an entirely different story. That could
have been solved by a police action. Law
enforcement could have rounded up those ter-
rorists and put them behind bars for the rest of
their life, like the ones who previously bombed
the World Trade Center are. Going to war and
turning two countries into dust is not a way to
gain the affection of the people in the Middle
East.
Let's send lefties
I just read this "Swap troops." Bring our
.troops back and send the bleeding-heart liber-
als. Better yet, let's send some of these big-
mouth armchair heroes that have never served


but they can tell you how to fight a war... Let's
send them instead and let them get a taste of it
and see how it is.
There's no proof
I just listened to the radio program where
Mitch McConnell related the war in Iraq to
9/11... I'd just like to point out that there has
never been proof of the relationship. It's just
more Bush lies.
Missing, missing
Reading the article in the Chronicle on Friday,
April 27, about the briefing that Gen. Patreaus
gave to the U.S. Senate, the paper, not unex-
pected, left out that fact that two most outspo-
ken critics could not take the time to find out
firsthand what was going on. Yes, both Reid and
Pelosi were missing, and I wonder why. Is it they
might find out the truth and this is why the
Chronicle did not mention it also? Just more
naysayers to hurt our men that are fighting to
protect you and me. Signed, retired Army.
Cover the cost
So much for Mr. Bush's concern for our
troops. If they are lucky to get leave for 14 days
or so, the Army brings them halfway and then
they have to pay to get to the base they call
home. I wish some of these Republicans would
open their eyes and see what Mr. Bush is doing
to this country and to our service people. It's a
dirty, rotten shame that a young man over there
has to pay his way halfway home in order to see
his family. That's just heartbreaking to me, but
you Republicans, you don't think so.


Stop complaining
This is in regards to the per-
son who called about the sher-
iff's deputies parking along the
side of the road and stopping
people just going 2 miles over
the speed limit and not taking
care of the crime. They don't
stop people going 2 miles over
the speed limit, it has to be at
least 5. I think Jeff Dawsy
deserves a lot of credit for his
law enforcement officers. If you
look at the statistics in the
paper and all the crimes that
this man is talking about, most
all of those crimes are in
Homosassa and Crystal River.
You see very few things from in
Inverness. I think the sheriff's
(office) is doing a fantastic job
of keeping our crime down.
And the helicopters that travel
around at night are very cau-
tious and they're looking for
burglars and people that are
lost and also practicing their
night flying. This is all for the
people's protection. I think
they ought to stop complaining
and be thankful for what we've
got.
New York cops
This is in regard to "Exper-


ienced deputies." I would like
to know who called in that
remark. It seems like they
haven't done any research on
it. The deputies in Citrus
County are experienced. They
may not be as experienced as
your major cities, like Miami,
Tampa or maybe Jacksonville,
but they still are experienced
officers. And also, I am a
retired New York City police
officer. I don't know of any
deputies down here, and I
know a few not too many,
but a few that are born and
raised here or did come from
someplace in Florida or maybe
Georgia, not New York City. So
you can qualify that for me and
tell me exactly how many New
York City police officers are
working for Jeff Dawsy. I would
appreciate that.
Enforcement caseload
I would like to know, under
the new sheriff's contract with
the city of Inverness, how
many traffic cases, misde-
meanor cases and felony cases
are made each month by the
Citrus County Sheriff's (Office).
You know the quickest way to
find out, so I appreciate if you
would help me out.


Editor's note: Call the sheriff's
office at 726-4488 and ask for
Gail Tierney. She can point you in
the right direction.
Go be a cop
This is in response of the
"Experienced deputies": I think
Citrus County deputies are
awesome. Sheriff Dawsy is
awesome. But the problem is
when they get in the court sys-
tem. It's the judges, OK? They
pat them on the back. It's not
the cops... Citrus County's awe-
some. And, Sheriff Dawsy, your
deputies especially Deputy
Labrador they are awesome.
So, you know, if you can do a
better job, why don't you be a
cop?
Stop speeders
I'd like to see Sheriff Dawsy
start putting some deputy
sheriff's patrol cars into
Tanglewood subdivision in
between 6 and 8 o'clock at
night when these young kids
are speeding in and out with
motorcycles, and also in the
morning from 6 to 9 o'clock
when all these people with
trucks and cars are flying out
of this area Tanglewood. I
mean this is bad...


Sound OFF


War lacks reason
One by one each of the
phony reasons we were given
for going to war in Iraq have
been proven wrong. Just last
week both President Bush and
Vice President Cheney made
statements one in a speech,
one in a radio program -
about Iraq cooperating with al-
Qaida. On the very same day
that Vice President Cheney
appeared on the radio pro-
gram, a Pentagon hitherto-
secret report was released say-
ing there was nothing to it and
both the CIA and the DIA
always knew there was nothing
to it. Now tell me, whyare we
still in Iraq? Why have almost
20,000 of our troops been hor-
ribly wounded? Why are 3,200-
plus troops dead? Why can't
they just admit they were
wrong and get the heck out?
Staring women
This is in response to
"Strange interlude." I'm the
one that wrote the first part
about them being strange, and
this person's writing in and
insulting me. They can't under-
stand why they're strange. They
said, oh, maybe it's
me that's strange.
No, I'm pretty normal 01
... The reason why I
call these women
strange down here is
because they stand
there and they stare
at you. I don't know
why they keep looking
at you...Where I come
from, women don't CALL
keep staring at other 563-
guys they don't know.
To me, that's strange Readers

About the dog food recall:

the dog food home, to throw it
out you know, your $20 bag
of dog food, just throw it out.
How about take it back and get
your money back and get a dif-
ferent brand?

A message for niece or
nephew of "Cheating uncle":
Why haven't you anonymously
reported uncle to the govern-
ment? Please report him and
never, ever confide your report
to anyone, not even your
spouse nor mother.
Pedophiles loose
I'm very happy that Mr.
Couey has been convicted of
what happened to poor Jessica,
but we have to remind our-
selves there's plenty of
pedophiles still loose in Citrus
Springs, Citrus County and all
over the country ...
Too-tall towers
What is it these developers
do not understand? Our laws
are and our rules that our
buildings are not to be more
than 35 feet high. Why do they
insist on doing something we

don't want? Why don't they get
out and go someplace that
wants higher buildings. We just
don't want them that high.
Paying the dues
I just wonder what's going on
with the Property Owners As-
sociation for Sugarmill Woods. I
was wondering why our proper-
ty association dues are mailed
to an address in Hernando
instead of to our A-frame at
Sugarmill. Also, our election
was a fiasco because they
made it so hard. People did not
understand how to vote on their
ballots. We consider this fleec-
ing of our property owners.
Stay near water
This is in regard to the
debate about water compact
tests in the Great Lakes region.
Perhaps if these governors
could manage to come up with
a plan that would keep their
population there with their wat-
er, Florida also would have suf-
ficient water for its population.
Flag clothing
The person who talks about
wearing the flag, I'm sure they
meant clothing, not just a
patch or an emblem.
Clothing, like flag
shirts, pants shoes,
they get dirty and
torn. And to me it's a
disgrace to see kids
rolling around in the
dirt, in the mud and
the grass with shirts
that look like the
American flag. I think
S579 that's what the person
meant clothing, not
e invited just a beautiful patch
e Sound or an emblem.

Charter change
The recommendation by the
Crystal River Charter Review
Committee to change the char-
ter with respect to municipal
elections is so fair and makes
so much sense that the only
thing that surprises me is that
it's not in place already.
Election to the city council is
nonpartisan. Currently, if a
number of people choose to
run for one seat on the council,
a candidate can win with a
minority of the votes cast,

J*i.; kL
^ f ~ M W r


\


which is sometimes a substan-
tial minority. With this recom-
mendation from the Charter
Review Committee, the election
would take place on primary
Election Day on even-numbered
years. The voters would be at
the polls anyway to vote for
other partisan and nonpartisan
offices. If no city council candi-
date receives 50 percent of the
vote on this primary Election
Day, the two people receiving
the highest number of votes
would run against each other in
a runoff on general Election
Day in November. The candi-
date with the highest number
of votes in the runoff election
is elected. This is the way elec-
tion to the county school board
- which is also nonpartisan -
is handled. The voters make
the final decision. To those who
are sitting on the council now
who were elected with a minori-
ty of the votes cast, I would
say that if you are serving the
citizens well, you have nothing
to fear with a runoff election.
Nature's ashtray
Yes, I agree people who
throw their cigarette butts out
of their car windows are a fire
hazard. But more than that,
people who throw their ciga-
rette butts out of their car win-
dows or off of their boats are
using our precious Mother
Earth as their personal ashtray,
which I find very, very offensive.
Trust in God
Today is Easter. We are a
nation that trusts in God it
says so on our money. I read in
the paper that we so restrict
the acceptable living sites of
people that we have labeled as
sexual predators, that in Miami
they are forced to lived under a
bridge with the noise, filth and
mosquitoes. This punishment
seems both cruel and unusual.
With 9/11, two wars that are
disasters, and the rest of the
world hating us, maybe God is
trying to tell us something and
we're not listening.


National motto
"In God We Trust" was
placed on some coins in 1865.
However, it has not been in
continuous use. For instance,
the Jefferson nickel didn't have
it until 1938. In 1938, it was
agreed that all coins would
have the motto "In God We
Trust." It's been on the 1-cent
coin since 1909, the 10-cent
since 1916, and the quarters
and half-dollars since July
1908. But previously it had
been an intermittent thing to
have the motto. In 1956,
Congress changed the national
motto of the United States to
be "In God We Trust," and
started putting it on the dollar
bill. I, frankly, like "E Pluribus
Unum" much better.
Very bad word
This is for the city manager of
Inverness: First of all, we do not
want to be called the villages of
anything..The Villages is a place
people here do not want to go.
That's totally obnoxious.... The
name "Villages" is a very bad
word. The other thing is the idea
is good in developing the histo-
ry, but your reasoning for want-
ing to do that is totally wrong.
Having the history location is
wonderful, but the only reason
you're doing it is because you
want to promote and sell more
land. And it's because they sell
all this land and bring all these
people in here that this city has
changed so much anyway. Your
idea, it's basically a good idea,
but your reasoning is all wrong.
And for goodness sake, don't
use the word "The Villages."
Leave it to bars
I'm glad the beer went flat.
This is concerning the story
about the flat beer at the park.
That's the reason some of us
didn't go. Anybody who thinks
that's a good idea needs to
think again. This is family activi-
ties. If we wanted to be around
a bunch of drunks, we'd go to
the bars. Just think about it.


This is supposed to be a family
atmosphere when we go to
these events. You don't subject
your children to that. That's
what's wrong with the children
today. They've been subjected
to the drinking and everything
that goes with it. Think about it.
You want to talk about the
greater good? The greater good
would be leaving the selling of
alcohol to the bars. Then you
know what to stay away from.
Weatherman missed
Most everyone in our area
depends on Channel 8 for our
main news, the national news,
and especially the details of
our weather. We lost one of our
weathermen from Channel 8,
who died, and you didn't even
as much as acknowledge it in
the Chronicle. I kept waiting sev-
eral days for you to catch up or
to get it out of some other
paper and give us some news.
As of today, Monday, the day
after Easter, you still haven't
told us anything about it.
Poor planning
This is in. regard to the beer
sales at the boat races. First of
all, people want to drink a beer
watching the race, not 200 feet
across the street. The beers
were $3.50 apiece. I only had
one. We had to drink-it in a
parking lot, very little shade. So
the planners have to plan a lit-
tle bit better if this is going to
happen again. That's all there
is to it.
Cable trouble
I'm also having trouble with
my cable service ... I've had it
for, I think, from Day One that
I've gotten the system. People
try to call me and they get a fax
machine. I'm in the middle of a
conversation and we're cut off.
I've had a man come several
times and was told the same
stuff, that the signals are too
close, which is a bunch of ma-
larkey, and there's nothing that
can be done about it and we'll
just have to deal with it. And I


get where people get busy sig-
nals and they can't get through
to me and I get no dial tone.
It's been an ongoing problem.
Kennel noises
Here in the Highlands we have
noise from the racetrack and
airport. If you live here, it is like
living in the middle of a kennel
with barking dogs all over the
place, night and day. New peo-
ple move into the area and they
bring three or four dogs with
them. First thing they do is go
off and leave them in the yard
and they bark nonstop while
they're gone. Then there are sick
people around here and they
don't like to hear this. Then
there are the people that take
their dogs out walking to mess
up other people's yards. It
seems to me people could have
a little respect for other people.
If I wanted a dog, I would have
one. All we get is aggravation
from other people's dogs.
Through the cracks
This is in response to the per-
son who called in about the pri-
vacy fences and the junk in the
back yard in Sunday's newspa-
per. Get your story straight. You
didn't put up the fence; your
neighbors did because you
couldn't keep your nose out of
their business. I don't blame
them for putting up the fence
since you see fit to make fun of
their mentally disabled chil-
dren. You are what we like to
call the old woman who cried
wolf. The reason code enforce-
ment didn't listen to you is
because you call them at least
once a month to complain. And
you know what? They never find
anything wrong with your neigh-
bors. So here's some advice: To
keep the splinters out of your
nose, stop peeking through the
cracks of their privacy fence.
Mind your own business.
Heat the pool
We were interested to read
the letter regarding advertising
pizza and lack of pool heating
in Sugarmill Woods. We bought
our house in Sugarmili Woods
and joined the country club
almost three years ago, specifi-
cally because we were told that
the larger pool would be heat-
ed in winter and that we would
be able to swim. In fact, this is
not the case, as we have never
been able to enjoy winter swim-
ming here. We've sent polite
letters and e-mails requesting
reasons why this should be so.
We have never once had the
courtesy of a reply, and yet
bills always seem to find us. If
it is too expensive to heat, how
about heating the smaller pool,
which to add insult to injury
- is also barely usable at the
moment, due to lack of main-
tenance and cleaning.

Judging others
Ms. Seader writes using the
History Channel on TV as her
source. Talk about re-writing
history! The History Channel
is notoriously inaccurate.
She lists rape, murder,
pedophilia, adultery and steal-
ing as immorality. This is a list
of criminal behaviors (in some


states, adultery is illegal).
These behaviors have been
crimes since man first began
to form tribes for mutual sup-
port and well being.
Homosexuality and abortion
were not.
She mentions an often
heard song, "My Country 'Tis
of Thee," which speaks of God
as being the Author of Liberty.
That song was written by a
Baptist minister, hardly a neu-
tral, secular source. While it
was written in 1832, it did not
even become popular until the
Civil War.
Ms. Seader writes that we
should look to the Jefferson
and Lincoln monuments. The
monuments to Jefferson and
Lincoln in Washington, D.C.,
do not mention Jesus or
Christianity. I hardly think that
Lincoln in 1923 or Jefferson in
1944 came back from the dead
to make their wishes known as
to what was engraved upon
their monuments.
It would have been illegal
for Jefferson alone to take
monies out of the U. S.
Treasury to support mission-
aries to the American Indians.
We do know that missionaries
were rushing to convert the
Indian tribes and build them
houses of worship, in conjunc-
tion with the Indians ceding
their valuable lands in the
east to those missionaries.
Jefferson, Jackson and other
early presidents had a policy
of re-locating Indians from the
east to lands west of the Mis-
sissippi. Missionaries were
happy to help.

God's judgment upon our land
because God has not favored
our nation above all others.
God does not make judgments
upon countries, but upon indi-
viduals, one at a time. She
should be more worried about
God's judgment upon mean-
spirited, judgmental people
who try to mandate and dic-
tate what others should
believe. And I quote: "Judge
not lest ye be judged."

Another name for it
I have been bothered as of
late about the attitude of the
Democratic Party and two
things they are in the process
of doing: Rewarding the ter-
rorists who continue to flow
into Iraq to fight the Evil
Americans and the removal of
the term Global War on
Terrorism!
I recently spoke to my clos-
est friend who is very im-
mersed in the fight against
Muslim terrorists. The Demo-
cratic Party says we can't win
in Iraq, when I am being in-
formed by people who are
behind the lines that we are


winning and that more and
more of the Iraqi people are
starting to understand why we
are at war there.
We are trying to free the
world of the oppression of the
17th-century thinking of those
who we are at war with; the
kind of people who scar and
beat their women if they are
so much as suspected of look-
ing at a man; those who beat
their children with things like
canes or walking sticks if they
do not submit to their elders
or follow the teachings of their
Muslim leaders.
But the Democrats gladly
will make peace with these
people by surrendering all we
have fought for! I thought the
Democrats stood for the rights
of women, children and the
oppressed. I guess they do, but
only when there is no risk.
The title Global War on
Terrorism is being struck from
bills in Congress. Under the
lead of the Democrats, we will
no longer call it the Global War
on Terrorism, even though we
have troops fighting Muslim
terrorists in many countries to
include Iraq, Yemen, UAE,
Jordan, Armenia, Azerbaijan,
Turkey, Lebanon, Kuwait,
Ethiopia, Sudan, Nigeria, Ken-
ya, Nairobi, Somalia, Egypt,
Algeria, Denmark, Great
Britain, France, Spain, Russia,
Italy, Greece, Argentina, Peru,
Colombia, Brazil, Venezuela,
Paraguay and on and on. I

MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
Kyle Clark trims the front hoof of a quarter horse named Moon last week. The teenager has been working in the farrier trade for most of his life.


Citrus High School senior finds a trade, saves animal's life in the farrier business


MIKE WRIGHT
mwright@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
eece and Christine St. John were getting
desperate.Their 9-year-old quarter horse,
Moon, had a severe case of thrush on his
hooves.
Without treatment and care, the bacteria
would continue to eat away at his feet. They
feared he might eventually have to be put
down.
The St. Johns tried treating Moon them-
selves, but he wouldn't cooperate. One would
try to soothe his nerves while the other
attempted to lift the bottom part of his leg.
Nothing worked.
They called farriers, but none were interest-
ed, since they have only one horse. One man
promised to come out to their property/south of
Floral City, but he didn't show up.
That's when Reece St. John noticed Kyle
Clark's business card on the wall of a feed
store. The St. Johns called Clark, but admitted
being a little nervous when this teenager
showed up.
It didn't take long for them to realize that
Clark was perfect for the job.


"The horse just took to him," Mrs. St. John
said. "I was really impressed."
Clark, 18, grew up in an Inverness family that
owned horses. Unlike some teens who can't
wait to flee the family lifestyle, Clark loved
horses from his youth and knew he wanted to
make a living in the farrier trade.
So Clark, a Citrus High School sen-
ior, is doing just that.
"This is what I've wanted to do
all my life," Clark said, after
trimming one of Moon's
hooves. To re
Clark started his training at Clark
age 14 when his father found at 34
a Brooksville farrier and
asked him to show his son
the ropes.
Technically, the farrier
trade is all about feet horse
feet. The farrier must be able to
trim hooves, remove shoes and fit
shoes to horses that may need them
based on their use. A horse that is ridden wears
a shoe different from a workhorse.
Horses that do neither regularly, such as
Moon, don't wear shoes at all.
But as Clark learned, the difficult part isn't


necessarily shoeing or trimming a hoof. It's get-
ting the horse, which can weigh about 1,200
pounds, to comply
"Sometimes it just gets lazy or mad, then
it just lays down on me," he said.
That happened. Clark was working
with a horse when it lay down on the
ground, pinning Clark underneath it.
"I yelled for the owners to get him off me," he
said. "You really can't do much."
So the relationship
between horse and far-
ach Kyle rier is vital. That's
call him i where Clark shows his
1-5951 touch, Mrs. St. John said.
"The first time, he was
incredibly comfortable
with him," she said of Moon.
Clark charges $25 for a trim
with a discount for multiple
horses. Shoes go for $65 for the
front hooves or all four for $120.
Charges may be higher for specialty shoes.
Right now he is serving about 20 horses,
Clark said.
Mrs. St. John said she is impressed with
Clark's work ethic, especially considering his
age.

E-ONE to remain in existing
facilities in Ocala
OCALA- E-ONE Inc. announced recent-
ly that it will remain in its existing manufactur-
ing facilities in Ocala, Florida. Federal Signal
Corporation and E-ONE reached the deci-
sion after a comprehensive evaluation
process, which spanned more than six
months.
"This investment proposal for a new E-
ONE site is not currently our foremost priority
due to the magnitude and complexity," said


Robert D. Welding, Federal Signal President
and CEO. "Instead, we are making invest-
ments in our distribution/dealer channels and
product development activities which support
our commitment of returning E-ONE to the
lead position in the North American fire appa-
ratus industry."
"The E-ONE team will intensify its competi-
tiveness by improving market-facing activities
through a broad set of initiatives such as new
product development, distribution expansion
and value-added services," said Marc F.
Gustafson, President of the Fire Rescue
Group. "Our priority is to work with our talent-
ed employees, dealer partners and loyal sup-
pliers, all of whom are key to our success
and critical toward helping our customers
accomplish their mission."
"We sincerely appreciate the support
offered by our employees, leaders of govern-
ment, business and communities over the
past several months," concluded Gustafson.
As a leading manufacturer of fire rescue
vehicles, E-ONE engineers and builds a
complete line of apparatus including haz-
ardous materials units, explosive ordnance
disposal vehicles, command centers and air-
craft rescue vehicles.

SMART
MONEY


Couple


could lose


big bucks

DEAR BRUCE: My
father-in-law recently
passed away. After pay-
ing off all our debts, we will
still have $80,000 in cash.
While I would like to save this
for our retirement, my wife is
very conservative and does not
want to invest in any stocks,
mutual funds, etc. I would like
to respect her wishes, so we
are looking at CDs and govern-
ment issues. What do you rec-
ommend? We are in our late
20s. F.C., via e-mail
DEAR F.C.: I would urge
your wife to get an education
in how to invest money. If you
follow her plan and stay strict-
ly with the CDs and govern-
ment issues, you.will literally
be throwing hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars away over the
30-plus years between now
and your retirement. It's fright-
ening that someone as young
as she is not willing to take a
decent risk in the market-
place. Over the long pull, she is
going to get hammered. Why
don't the two of'you decide to
do a little studying together?
You might take an investing
course at the local community
college or go to a seminar or
two. By all means, read cur-
rent periodicals devoted to
investing. I hope she will come
around. It would be a shame to
see all that money go to waste.
DEAR BRUCE: I am in the
military, stationed abroad. Is it
smart to buy land now so that
we can build a retirement
home in about 14 years? I plan
on retiring from the military at
that time, but I will have a
post-military career. What fac-
tors should I consider before
making a decision? B.T., via
e-mail
DEAR B.T.: I would not pur-
chase land looking that far
ahead. First of all, land is an
alligator; it eats. You will have
to pay taxes, you must have the
land insured in case someone
gets injured on your property
and, further, since you are not
around, you have no idea in
which direction the communi-
ty where you purchased this
land is headed, whether it will
develop the utilities and so
forth. It is far better, in my
view, to continue to invest your
retirement money in the mar-
ketplace. When the time
comes, you can purchase the
land. Fourteen years in
advance would be a very risky
endeavor.
DEAR BRUCE: At age 51,
does it still make sense to open
a Roth account? I plan to retire
in 12 years. George, via e-
mail
DEAR GEORGE: If you have
no need for the money for the
next 12 years, why not? At your
age, it will not be as great a
benefit as it would have been
several years ago. Still, you can
put in $24,000 over the next 12
years, all of which will labor
intensely for you at no tax con-
sequence. You can leave it
there as long as you wish. In
other words, if you have other
retirement monies to draw
upon, use them first and leave
the money in the Roth IRA. It's
a shame you didn't get started
a bit earlier, but it sure isn't
going to hurt you to take
advantage of what I consider
to be the best tax break that
America offers.
DEAR BRUCE: I am a 34-
year-old, hardworking, respon-
sible man who is in a con-
trolled financial mess. I have a
mortgage, two brand-new car
payments, two home-equity
loans, one student loan, a cred-

there volunteers came in from all
over the county. This event could
not have been such a success with-
out all of you. And for that we are
truly thankful to each and every-
one.
The next event was at the special
Board of County Commission
(BOCC) meeting in which the
Chamber rallied around the
Impact Fee concerns for the mem-
bership. Please note the Chamber
is not totally against Impact Fees,
but rather would like the BOCC to
evaluate their decisions on how


relevant data is used to arrive at
making intelligent decisions.
Individuals and businesses from
Citrus County came out and voiced
their concerns. These concerns
were heard and respected by the
BOCC with a portion of the Impact
Fees scheduled to go into effect on
June 1, 2007. A lesson we all
learned from this is the
Commissioners want to hear from
us on a regular basis. We must not
wait, thinking someone else will
step up to voice a concern, we must
be that person!
The next event was the
Strawberry Festival at the Floral


City Park Thank you to the Board
of County Commissioners for
allowing us the opportunity to con-
tinue bringing you our very own

Floral City Volunteer Fire
Department for all their volun-
teers. Unfortunately, Saturday was
not a fair weather friend to our
guests. But Sunday came and
brought with it awesome sunshine
and entertainment. We look for-
ward to seeing you there next year.

The work of America's 2.9 million
registered nurses who serve the
needs of millions of individuals is
the focus of National Nurses Week,
May 6 through 12. The American
Nurses Association has selected
"Nursing: A Profession and a
Passion" as the theme for 2007.
Nurses are a vital part of the hos-
pice care team. "Nurses working in
end-of-life care bring together the
highest levels of medical skill, com-
passion, sensitivity and dedication
in a way that reflects well on all
healthcare professionals," remarked
Hospice of Citrus County Chief
Executive Officer Anthony J.
Palumbo. "Hospice of Citrus County
is proud to salute those profession-
als who are essential members of
our medical community." Hospice of
Citrus County has over 120 nurses
who manage care and provide serv-
ices to patients at home, in long
term care facilities, hospitals or hos-
pice house 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week. They offer the highest qual-
ity of compassionate care to those
in the last months of life. They have
specialized training in the manage-
ment of non-cancer diseases such
as end stage cardiac and respirato-
ry and Alzheimers/dementia.
Hospice Nurses also manage many
of the hospice programs and pro-
vide educational programs through
the community. For information, call
352-527-2020 or visit the web at
www.hospiceofcitruscounty.org.
MEN
Lecanto Middle School would like
to thank Dr. Hoffman, Dr. Jones and
Dee Fries of Fakhoury Chiropractic
Clinic for taking the time to provide
our student-athletes with physicals
for the upcoming year. Their devo-
tion to ensuring the future participa-
tion of our kids is commendable.

If you are looking for something
new and rewarding to do this sum-
mer, the Citrus team of Hemando-
Pasco Hospice (HPH) welcomes
your volunteer service. A two-part
training will take place from 9:30
a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, May 15 and


Thursday, May 17 at the team
office, 3545 N. Lecanto Hwy., in
Beverly Hills. Lunch will be provided
both days. Call Carl Muckerheide,
volunteer coordinator, at (352) 527-
4600 to register. If you like office
work there are packets to assemble,
phone calls to make and special
projects to do. Volunteers are also
needed to visit patients and families
in private residences, nursing
homes, assisted living facilities or at
the HPH Care Center in Inverness.
Consider Compassionate Paws if
you have a well behaved canine.
This hospice program provides will-
ing patients with visits by therapy
dogs who have passed stringent
tests. If you can operate a video
camera or have the art for conver-
sation, the Legacy Program may be
for you. Volunteers must be at least
14 years old to assist in the office
and 17 or older to interact with
patients and families. Volunteers
play a key role in carrying out the
Citrus team's mission of providing
care, comfort and support to individ-
uals affected by a life-limiting illness
and their families regardless of abili-
ty to pay. resently the HPH Citrus
team, which has been operating in
Citrus County for almost two years,
serves about 75 patients on an
average day.

Join us for the next CITA meeting
from 5:30 to 7:30 May 10 at the
CFCC Citrus Campus, Jerome
Multipurpose Room building L2. If
you work in the Information
Technology industry or an associat-
ed industry, come meet your peers
to discuss the latest 'hot topics' in a
non-competitive atmosphere. We
are proud to announce that there
will be a check presentation by Jack
Reynolds of the Economic
Development Council for a contribu-
tion to jump start our new organiza-
tion! Remember that if you want to
have a table at the June 1 'What's
it?" Featuring the microsoft across
america truck and cisco, deadline
for registration is may 15th! Visit our

employees during a conference call that they

keep it in the family. What
strategy can you recommend?
- LB. in Pennsylvania
DEAR LB.: The only strate-
gy would be to persuade your
aunt to assign her interest in
this house to either your dad or
some other member of the fam-
ily. Someone should point out
to her that this is a screwball
proposition. If she does what
she intends, the result may sub-
stantially diminish the value of
the property. This will be a
house owned by committee,
and getting people to agree is
almost impossible. I hope
someone can persuade her
that this is a very bad course. If
the only choice you have is to
do this or sell it and then dis-
tribute the cash, I strongly urge
both sides to consider selling.
If your aunt persists with this
bad idea, I would go to the
courts to get relief.
DEAR BRUCE: We have


looked into 55-plus retirement
communities where they rent
the lot to you and put your
manufactured home on it. The
monthly fees include the lot,
activities fees, water, trash,
lawn maintenance, etc. Most of
the homes sell for $50,000 to
$100,000, but you don't own the
land. What do you think? -
L.V. in Missouri
DEAR LV.: What you are
describing is a relatively com-
mon thing in Florida. While
I'm not wildly enthusiastic
about renting the property, the
likelihood is that they'll give
you a 100-year lease, and 100
years from now I don't think it's
going to matter to either one of
us. If you put the numbers
together and you are satisfied
with the way the community is
being maintained, I have no
quarrel with. this. I have a
friend who lives in one of these
homes, and he is delighted.

WORLD'S GREATEST






BABY SHOWER


xpecting parents don't always know what
to anticipate when a new baby arrives. That
is why Citrus County will host the 12th
Annual "World's Greatest Baby Shower"
on Thursday, May 10, at the Citrus County
Auditorium at the fairgrounds in Inverness.
This year the Baby Shower will be divided into two
identical sessions, the first from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and the
second from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Participants are invited to
attend the one session that best fits their schedule.
Admission is free. We are pleased to have Tanya
Spencer, Miss Citrus County, serving as our emcee this
year.
Mothers, fathers and grandparents along with friends


are encouraged to join in on educational and entertaining
activities. Activities include an educational question-
and-answer scavenger hunt and an entertaining daddy
scrub pack race.
Over 35 exhibitors attend to educate parents on impor-
tant issues ranging from nutrition and breast-feeding to
the benefits of reading and the harm to infants of smok-
ing.
Community support is key to this event. Major spon-
sors of the Shower include Citrus County Health
Department, Citrus County Home and Community
Educators, the Citrus County Chronicle, Kiwanis Clubs
of Citrus County, and many other civic groups, hospitals,
churches, agencies, businesses and organizations.


Many door prizes will be awarded throughout the
evening including new cribs, strollers, car seats, hand-
made baby quilts, gift baskets and many other baby gifts.
Prizes for the parents will also be available.
Donations will be welcomed right up to the event
opening. Suitable new items for door prizes and dona-
tions of money are appreciated. Checks should be made
payable to Citrus County Home and Community
Educators (CCHCE). Donations of any type may be
dropped off at the Inverness Health Department, 120 N.
Montgomery Ave., with the name and address of the
party donating.
For more information, please call Lee Brannon at 726-

Safe sleeping.




for infants


It is every new parent's wish to
keep their baby safe, but dangers
are not always obvious. For
instance, it is common knowledge
that infants should ride in a car
seat, but many caregivers don't know that
how and where a baby sleeps is also a
safety issue. In Florida in 2005, 52 infants
under one year of age died of suffocation
or strangulation while in bed. This is a sad
statistic that, in most cases, could have
been prevented.
Here are some ways to help keep a baby
safe while sleeping:
* Unless there is a medical reason not to,
place babies on their backs to sleep. Back
sleeping has been shown to help lower the
risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
(SIDS). In 2005, 87 babies in Florida died
of SIDS. While the cause of SIDS is still
unknown, the rate is significantly lower
among babies who sleep on their backs.
* Babies are safest when sleeping on a
firm mattress in a safety-approved crib
with sheets that fit tightly over the mat-
tress.
* No loose blankets, quilts, comforters,
pillows, soft toys or stuffed animals
should be in the crib with baby. If it is
cold, the baby should be dressed in a
warm sleeper outfit rather than being
placed under blankets.
* Babies are not safe when sleeping on
sofas, cushioned chairs or recliners, pil-
lows, air mattresses, waterbeds, bean bags
or other soft surfaces where they might
suffocate.
Some new parents enjoy sleeping in the


same bed with their baby, but it has been
shown that adult beds are not safe for
babies because:
* An infant can be smothered by blan-
kets, comforters, pillows.
* They can get trapped between the bed,
the wall, or the frame and be unable to
breathe.
* Babies can suffocate when an adult or
another child rolls over on them.
* Infants can roll off the adult's bed and
be injured.
* Infants should especially not be in the
same bed with a sleeping adult who is
excessively tired or ill; who has used alco-
hol, drugs, or medicine that causes
drowsiness; or who is excessively over-
weight.
If a parent wants to sleep near the baby,
a crib or bassinet next to the adult bed is a
safer alternative.
Other ways to help keep an infant safe:
* Alert all caregivers, including grand-
parents and daycare workers, of the
importance of safe sleeping.
* Do not allow smoking around the baby.
Second-hand smoke is another factor that
has been implicated in an increased risk of
SIDS.
* Do not let the baby become overheated.
Keep the room temperature comfortable
for a lightly clothed adult and dress the
baby as you would dress yourself in the
same conditions.

Breastfeeding:


A Great Choice


One of the most treasured experiences in
a mother's life is breastfeeding her baby.
There are so many benefits to breastfeed-
ing and the experts (ACOG and American
Academy of Pediatrics) agree that breast-
feeding is best:

Breast milk is easily digested, and

Nursing lowers the mother's risk of

If you are going to succeed at breast-

Attend breastfeeding classes, join a

League chapter. Use these supportive
resources throughout the entire experi-

of breastfeeding.


Vaccines proven to reduce infectious diseases


Vaccines have dramatically reduced the
number of children affected by infectious
diseases and their complications.
However, the viruses and bacteria causing
vaccine-preventable diseases and death
still exist. Complete immunization of
Florida's children prevents epidemics of
these diseases.
"Vaccines are one of history's most suc-
cessful tools for preventing serious disease
and death," DOII Secretary of Health Ana
M. Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said.
"Parents and health care providers must
work together to ensure all children are
fully immunized."
Nationwide, immunization levels are at

with a doctor or health care provider. Ask
whether or not the baby is up-to-date on
his or her shots.
* Parents and guardians will be given a
card that lists the shots a baby gets. Keep
this record in a safe place and bring it to
every doctor visit.
* Ask the doctor when to return for the
baby's next shots. Write it down. Make
an appointment.
Babies need many immunizations
before they are two years old to protect
them against serious childhood diseases
like measles, whooping cough and diph-
theria. For information about immuniza-
tions, please visit the DOH Web site at or
call your local county health department.


* At each visit, discuss immunizations

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Summer camps serve as a 4-H delivery method


-H is a commu-
nity of young
people, across
America, learning
citizenship, leader-
ship and life skills. 4-
H uses a variety of
methods for reach-
ing youths with
opportunities that
help them grow and Amy I
develop in positive YO
ways. In Florida, the
term 4-H member IDE
and 4-H participant
are used synonymously when
youths engage in a minimum of
six hours of educational learn-
ing experiences, regardless of
the delivery method. This may
include youths enrolled in a 4-
H club, a school enrichment
program such as the Tropicana
Speech Contest, a summer day
camp series or going to a sum-
mer 4-H residential camp.
Residential camp members
are youths who take part in an
Extension planned education-
al experience of group living in
the out-of-doors that includes
being away from home at least
one night.
Special interest or day camp
members are youths meeting
for a specific learning experi-.
ehce that involves direct teach-
ing by Extension staff or
trained volunteers. Day camp-
ing consists of multiple-day
programs, with youths return-

Wings of Freedom
fly-in set May 19
Wings of Freedom Aviation
Museum Inc. (formerly Fla. Div.
Yankee Air Force) will be having its
last fly-in event at the Dunnellon


airport from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Saturday, May 19. County Road
484, between Dunnellon and State
Road 200. Due to the fact that the
county denied an extension on our
hangar lease and denied us every
spot on the airport that was asked
for to build a museum, we have no
other option but to leave and look
for friendlier areas. At the moment,
Williston airport looks to hold a
more promising future for an
Aviation Museum and special
future events.
There will be any number of air-
craft and old war birds coming in
and out during the day. There will
also be many vendors with quality
goods as well as ice cream,
peanut brittle, hot dogs, burgers,
sausages, potato salad and corn
on the cob.
Available will be T-shirts, hats,
aviation jewelry, patches, dog tags,
plants and flowers, dog collars and
accessories and much more.
You may also take the ride of a
lifetime and have the thrill of flying
in an open cockpit by-wing
Stearman and feel the wind
beneath your wings. This will be a
fun day for the entire family. Also
for your viewing pleasure will be
classic cars, restored military vehi-
cles and motorcycles.
Call Carolyn Mills at (352) 489-
3120.
